em--0 Imprint staff It was a busy and successful year for Tess Sliwinski in the Federation of Students. After John Vellin@s resignatibn as President in November, SIGnski’s responsibilities as Vice-President, Operations and Finance grew to include the President’s ex officio duties. Her and the Federation’s accomplishments for 199041 have been many. They were responsible for scheduling a new event, Summerfest, during the middle of summer. This

Other improvements implemented by SIiwinski are free noon-hour concerts at the Bombshelter, restructuring the budget, establishing an Athletic Committee for intercollegiate student athletes in need of sponsorship, and cqurchas~g a new event board for the side of ring road. Finan&lly, the Federation is in better standing than it was a year ago, which is quite an accomplishment, says Sliwinski, considering the pre-

Kim Speers has had an eventful year as the Vice-President, University Affati of the Federation of Students. ‘7’ve accomplished.much of what I setout to do,” she told Imprint.“But there are challenges still to be met. The biggest of these is student apathy.” Speers was disappointed by the poor attendance at many Federation-organized events, such as speakers and for-a. “A6 long as the event has beer, people wilI come to it. But anything educational, it’s nearly impossible to get people out,” she said. She also identified campus-wide recycling a6 one of the major chalIenges for the immediate future. ‘Through the student societies and the Students Against the Victimization of the Earth (SAVE), we’ve gut a lot of bins in place and organized pick-up every Tuesday. Unfortunately, that’s not campus-wide yet, because the university just recently hired a Waste Management Coordinator (Pat Fisher).” Speers considers the formation of the Human Rights Board and nGsing awareness about P--ndary underfunding recycling on campus, and sexism to be among her accomplishments. “People were asking me if I&ad become an Imprint staff member with the amount of articles I was writing about women’s issues and underfunding” she said. “I even made it onto

According to Tess, all of the Federation-orgmized activities, from Homecoming to Winterfest, were all successful events financially and in terms of participation. Sheis particularly proud of the pep rally which affirmed Waterloo’s strong school spirit, along with the introduction of “Black Plague spirit tshirts” which were distributed during fresh week Another piece of progress was the conversion of the upper level of Fed Hall to a spurts lounge including pool tables, dart boards, and video games. Changing the atmosphere of Fed Hall has increased business, Sliwinski says.

Gift for disabled .

Earlier this year, graduate students from the Engineering Math, and Science faculties formed a Grad Gift Committee with the purpose of raising money to install an automatic door in the Village One cafeteria for disabled students. The Committee sold approximately 2,600 raffle tickets during January and February. After giving out the prizes, they were able to present a cheque for $4,300 to the Co-ordinator of Services for Disabled Persons Florence Thomlison. In the future, the Committee hopes to make this an an&al event that would include all faculties. They also would like to be able to use some of the money for scholarships for disabled students, since there are few currently available, Pictured above are grand prize winner RobertPluge, Grad Gift Raffle organizers Peter von Schilling, Alexander Rink, Ray Hyde, and Kevin Deleenheer presenting the cheque to Florence Thomlinsom Absent are Sandra Duncan and Daphine Moskal.

ran, a feminist, lawyer, and activist. She started her address by sharing a number of anecdotes with an audience of about 45 women and men. A statement she ‘overheard while attending Osgoode HalILaw School by her &ninal law professor ‘Don’t they knoti that girls are for fudcingy - was the catalyst for her becoming a feminist Through this _ encounter and several others involving sexism while articling, McPhedran was able to define her femin&m through political and social activism After working to set~p;arapecrisiscentre,sherealized how many systemic and institutiod &stacks had been set up by a maledominated society which prevented, and continues to prevent women fko~ reporting incidents ,of sexual assault and child abuse. According to Mcl’hedran, these barriers are subtle and they invalidate any attempts to take legal a&ion much less achieve justice. A prime example she cited was our socialized attitudes toward members of selfregulating professions inclpding dottom, clergy, so&l workers, and professors. We are taught that ‘Doctors don’t do that,” McPhedran says. In 1985, she formed the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) to combat systemic discrimination, LEAF intervene when it can at the appeal stage in an attempt to highlight issues that are peripheral to the case but must be dealt with in order to start “building a foundation” . for equality in judicial decisions. She expressed hope that through a growing awareness of these issues, society will prioritize them and find it neceSSiuy to fight for equality” Shifts in media can affect changes in attitudes, but laws change slowly.

Congratulations, Waterloo! You have been chosen to host the CUSEN/RUCEE Secoqd AMU~ Conference in the winter of 1992. The University of Waterloo was awarded the conference over many other Canadian universities vying for th$ bid. CUSEN/RUCEE is the Canadian Unified Student Environment Network or Reseau Unifie Canadien des Etudiants pour I’Environment. network was tonned in January of this year to provide a national voice for student-based environmental groups. Seven representatives from Waterloo attended the first conference at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. The conference theme is the “Campus as Biosphere: Re-evaluating our Education.” The focus will be on creating sustainable camp-. This will include looking at resource issues such as energy, food, and water, as well as waste management, environmental education, and the role of student environmental groups. UW is unique in Canada for being able to showcase numerous projects in sustainable living highlighted by the recent introduction of organic food to the Wild Duck Cafe. Organizers are expecting between 75 to 150 delegates from campuses in all ten provinces and two territories to atind this three-day bilingual conference, and are looking for people to help organize the monstrous task of putting together three days of conference activities complete with

billeting and meals. They strongly encourage any individual or group on campus to join us in organizing any aspect of the conference. The organizers would also like to thank UW Vice-President, Academic and Provost Alan George, Environmental Studies Dean Jim Bater,‘and of Students ViceFederation

This is my last term at UW. After nearly five years here, I have less than three weeks left until my last final. Five years is a long time, and it feels a little strange to be going out into “that bii world.” But how has university prepared me for what Iies ahead? What do I take with me? Surely not much to do with my degree, which by the way is in Mathematics. I lost my interest in that field as soon as the calculus assignments started to pile up. No, I think the experiences I have had at UW have shaped me far more than my courses. Unfortunately, I’m leaving school with a bad taste in my mouth. You see, at the Warriors hockey game on Saturday there were a couple of assholes holding up signs that said No Means Harder and Stop Means PIease. The complete Iack of foresight by these sub-morons stunned me at fitst. And then angered me. How can anyone have functioned in our society for the past few years and not have picked up even a clue that jokes about date mpe ARE NOT FUNNY? Come on boys, wake up! L&e I mentioned I’m a math major, so I like to use statistics to support my point. 111only use a few, to demonstrate a pattern of thought. My source is a compilation of statistics from the “Ontario Women’s Directorate Fact Sheet on Sexual A cqultn which I got from the Federa-

tion of Students. Between 63 and 84 per cent of rapists arean acquaintance of the victim. According to an American college and university date rape survey, one in four of the women surveyed were victims of forcible penetration. Rape. One out of helve of the men surveyed had committed acts that met the legal definition of rape of attempted rape, Yet, 84 per cent of the men who committed rape, as defined by law, said that what they did was definitely not rape. So those are the stats. A little impersonal, perhaps, so I’ll add a personal experience from my first year at UW. One of my neighbows played soccer at school when he was 14 oi so. He and a few friends used to go to one guys’ house and invite a girl over, saying how much one of the guys liked her. That guy would talk her into going downstairs to a room they had a mattress in. He’d screw the girl and then say that one of the other guys had a crush on her too, and the next guy would get his turn. They had an room. Each guy had other storie ced, he said, and anywhere from the soccer team.

alarm clock just outside the got ten minutes with her. He too. Some of them were forsome weren’t. They involved a few guys to the better part of And one girl. As I listened to

as many as I could stomach,1 was amazed at his lack of remorse. Didn’t he feel awful for what he’d done? “No,” he said, “I was young. I was a mper.” Wouldn’t you like to be a pepper too?

I wish I could let you drink until you arc totally polluted, but as a supervisor, I have e job description and the Liquor License Act tc follow. I am paid to care about what happenr to you in the Bombshelter and my responsibility does not end when you leave the pre= mises. I am responsible for your actions until you sober up* If anything happens to you, 1 could face up to $10,000 in fines, and jeopardize the liquor license for the entire university. In reference to your accusation that I was rude, let me ask you this: how long could you or would you be polite with someone who was yelling irrationally and not listening to any of the responses you were giving? Regarding my not giving you my last name, I did not feel it was necessary at the time. How much more information do you need to register a complaint? As to the event leading up to our altercation, the offer is still extended to come and speak with my boss (and myself if you feel it necessary). In fact, I repeatedly said to you at the end of our “incident” that “if you have problems or concerns about the evening’s situation my boss, ‘Dave Playfair, will be here Monday morning and would be more than wiIli.ng to see you.” I find it sad that you had to take this route to resolve your concerns.

I was sorry to see your letter in the last issue of Imprint but, in light of being called rude, power-tripp& and an “(A--LE),” I feel I must respond. As an employee of the Bombshelter, I am occasionally faced with the regrettable task of aslung a patron to leave. This sometimes results in a situation where I am called sundry and unsavoury names. Usually, upon sober reflection, the name-caller is sore, ashamed, and does not press the issue. You, on the other hand, seem not to have benefitted from sober reflection on the incident of March 15, and thus I am compelled to enlighten you. ‘5~~lraSmlmptim that Jonathan was sint+~7 ou; because he lost h&ID is interesting.

LimBrice,VPUA-&xt I have been attending the University of Waterloo’s licensed faciIities for about five years now, and some notable’changes have taken place which I would like to question and comment A few days ago, I was sitting in the Campus Centre and I could not help but overhear a conversation involving a group of off-duty Fed Hall staff. The topic was their manager, Chuck McMulIan, his shortcomings, and why business is dying up at Fed Hall. Albeit moralIy wrong to listen to the conversation, I was drawn to it because the subject was all too familiar and repetitive. You see, Chuck McMuIlan has been confusing and generally “pissing off” his staff since he was hired in 1985. Harsh words!?! Of course they are. But I challenge you to ask the majority of past and current staff members about Chuck’s conduct and managerial style. He (as well as the other Fed Hall managers) was never a student here. He does not seem to know what this campus would Iike in a student club. Dwindling business and low attendance support this. My question to you, “the powers that be,% this: why is Chuck McMuUan sti.lI the manager of Federation Hall? He does not seem to have the support or confidentie of the majority of his staff and student body alike. We are paying for a building that is not meeting our needs and I feel we should either be refunded and/or have Chuck McMullan replaced by someone who will represent the students’ best interesb. If you like Chuck so much., give him another job within the Federation of Students, But please be reminded that “in the real world,“many business replace the boss ifproduction is slumping. I mean, how many

coaches have the Leafs had since 1985?! I now would Iike to comment on the Bombshelter. A few years ago, you could not drag me into the I3ombshelter. The decor was drab, music terrible, bounce aggressive and unfriendly. Generally speaking, it was the “last resort” pub. What a difference a manager makes. I would like to commend David Playfair for entirely changing the Bombshelter. From the music and decor to the hospitality of the staff, the Bombshelter has certairdy become the place to be on campus. Playfair is highly respected by his staff and “faithful patrons”alike. Although not perfect, his staff make you want to return. He has made it obvious that he is working in the students’ best interests. . 1 I find it interesting that Playfair left Ped HalI in the summer of 1988. You know, it has been almost three years since Fed HaIl was consistently fun and “the place to be.” This, I believe, is not a cdincidence.

t0 act in the best interests of all parties concerned. In the fourth place, the issues surrounding sexual’ assault are far more complex than those of “pulling a firealarm, &hting a i&cracker, or quiet hour violations.” The analogy made between these actions and seti assault is absurd. It is obvious that sexual assault has a far greater human impact. When dealing with sensitive situations, the Dons are concerned with maintaining confidentiality as opposed to “covering up.” We wilI advise thevictimsofalltheiroptionswhilealsobeing supportive; we can and wiIl do onIy what the @Ii.ms ask of us. FinaUy, we also question the credibility of the article when the most obvious qualified professionals, trained to deal with sexual assault are ‘omitted: namely Health and Safety, and Courtselling Services.

‘To the editor, To- the editor, We, ‘the Village Dons, would like to address some of the issues raised in the corn-’ mentary “On-Campus rape is being covered up,” Imprint, March 22, 1991. In the first place, the article refers to three cases of “rape” in the villages. We want to clarify that these cases are alleged sexual assaults in the eyes of the law, whereas the * commentary implies that the three accused are rapists. Second, we would like to clarify the role of a Don A Don is a full-time student, whose duties include being available to advise and consult with Villagers. As Dons, we realize that we are not qualified to handle the legal and medical aspects of these situations. However, we are trained to direct both the alleged victim and the accused toward the appropriate professionals, on and offcampus. Third, once notified of such an incident, the VilIage has no legal jurisdiction to pass judgment on the accused. The role Of the Village is

’ I am kiting in regards to the article “Oncampus rape in being covered up,” in the March 22 issue of Imprint. +y people have read the statistics on rape, and know it is high. We also know that many rapes probably go unreported. Yet, some women &ill take unnecessary risk of being raped. I believe that the reason is they think it will “never happen to them.” It is necessary to show women that the risk is real! I believe the o&y way to do this is to make it personal'and close to home.

Abortion letter #l To the &or, The article written by the Women’s Issues Committe (“Why abortion is a student issue,” March 15,1991 Imprint) raised some important concepts which need to be addressed. The Committee outlhied the goals of rights to education, employment equity, and selfdetermination. Admirable goals they are; unfortunately, the very argument used for them works against them. The Committee St&es that the issue of choice is key to women’s equality, and one important aspect of choice is abortion, The concept implies women will be disadvantaged without the abortion option. That is a w betrayal of women’s abilities because it implies that women are unable to overcome the setback of pregnancy. The truth is that women possess much more potent capabilities than implied Pregnancy should not be narrowly portrayal as the ultimate disabler. Another statement that abortion tragically makes is that the tissue being aborted is worthless. For if it were valued, it would be protected. Since it is not even worth protecth it onIy adds to the difficuky in obtaining other important goals - for example, maternity leave and benefits, job protection for the pregnant, etc. An important aspect ‘of an improved perception (in both sexes) of child bearing and rearing has to include the attribution of increased v&e to children What is needed is a change in values.

Forum generations. For a shift to be made in our vaIue9, change has to occur in both men and

women In the area of birth cont~01,men must share the responsibility. It must be ir@ned into the male psyche to take all possible birth

control measures independent of their partners’ precautions. It is questionable whether improved reproductive technology alone will eliminate unwanted pregnancy. Therefore, since men are equaIly responsible for such an occurrence, there must be a mutual effort put into the resolution. It is not only a female problem. Men must support their partner in both emotional and financial terms. The real fear that women have of sexual, violence is a sad commentary on some men’s attitudes. But those attitudes don’t or@nate out of thin air. They are general attitudes from the general population taken to an extreme. Attitudes must be taken seriously. Inappropriate innuendos, coarse jokes, and slips of the tongue must be rebuked for change in behaviour to begin. A shift in sexual idolatry of the physical to the relational would also be 3 benefit. There are no t&e ways to change attitudes, but one has to begin where able, and hopefully over time, results will be seen. The attempt has to be made. Women’s goals will not be met by an enormous “fight” for rights. They will be met only when both sexes realize their mutual, recipro21 responsibilities and common destiny. CC. Gunderaon

editor,

The article entitled “Why abortion is a student issue,” printed in Imprint (March 15, 1991), raised a number of important concerns, yet failed to deal with a number of crucial considerations in the abortion debate. The writer(s) of this article maintained that the “issue at stake” in the abortion is&e “is a wow’s right to control her destiny.” The main diffkulty with this assertion is that this is allitisan assertion, not an argument. To assert this belief does not prove it. In fact, this proclamation seems to suggest th;rt the pregnant woman’s destiny is the only destiny to be considered, and indeed takes precedent over the destiny of the fetus. These presuppositions, however, have tremendous ethical’ and legal implications. The question that needs to be addressed, by the writer(s) of the Imprint article is, “Why does the pregnant woman’s right to control her destiny give her the right to terminate the life of the fetus?“The fetus mu& be given consideration in this argument because of the evidence concerning his/her nature. Jules Caries, director of research at France’s National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), and one of the foremost geneticists in the world, stated: ?!lwjm cell is alreu@ the emby of an autonomous living being. . . . In thatfirst cell the profound dynamkm and theprecke direction of lifte appears . . . . In spite uf its$wgility and its immense nee& an autonomous artd genuiwly living being has cume into existeiwe . . . . (ta fecondation 5th edition, Paris, &ewes Universitaim de France, 1947, pp. 81-82)

ail the evidence at our disposal that ConEms the fact that the fetus is a living human, how is it possible to assert one’s right to autonomy supersedes another’s right to exist? Problematic to the argument of those who assert that autonomy does take priority over another’s right to exist, is to argue this Without it creating chaos in other contexts. For example, how would we react to parents who decided that infanticide was a viable altemative to raising their children because the children interfered with their autonomy/ destiny? We might find this action on the parents’ part morally reprehensible; yet, they are employing that same principle to legitimize their action. Nor is the problem bypassed by asserting that because the fetus is dependent upon the woman, the woman therefore has the right to abort the fetus. As in the case above, to assert that person ‘r has the fight to terminate person “Y’ because “Y U is dependent on ‘x” is to develop horrendous implications. Would we really want to employ this type of reasoning in other contexts? For example, does a hospital have a ,right to take the life of someone in intensive care because that person depends on the hospital for his/her existence? Once more, most of us would have grave reservations with this type of reasoning. Why in this case and not in the former case? Certainly, the writer(s) of the Imprint article should be commended for the desire to “fight for women’s equality in society.” The problem that needs to be confronted, however, is how can they believe this end is achieved by violating another’s right to exist?

I Is student activism an oxymoron? In my political science class weare studying Central American politics. Outburts of laughter are becoming increasingly co-on - our professor has been discussing the key * role that student activists played in the Sandin&a revolution. Most of the people in the class think “student activism” has become an OXJ’fIlOrQll.

At one time I would have agreed, I can think of an “a” word that often follows “student,” but it is apathy, not a&L&t. Apathy has been no stranger to this campus during my last four years here. But I wonder now if apathy should read d&empowerment. It is ironic at best that disenfranchised pet+ ple all over the world are fighting to obtain what we ostensibly have here - political rep resent&ion - yet we cannot puIl ourselves . out of our lethargy long enough to use that power. We have been lulled into complacency by our political system, a system that has made us believe we can pass off our social responsibilities onto our leaders. The problem is compounded when people don’t even use that electoral right - 17 per cent of LIW students voted in the last Federation of Students elections. What ever happened to &allenging the status quo, questioning assumptions (like economic growth is necessary and good for everyone) and trying to change what we don’t like about the world? Isn’t that what students are for? A conservative air has descended on us, one that reeks of establishment. People believe more in market power than political power these days, hence the smart move by “green” companies to market their products as environmentally friendly. Students are no more than people, living in the mainstream, concerned with financial security (which depends more on the numbers on that litde piece of paper you get when you’re finished than cm what you actually learned while you were here) and unwilling to take chances. ‘That ii except for a sbut vocal minOrity.

No UW students (besides the obligatory Feds) marched on Queens Park this year (it’s pathetic that this issue has warranted an annual event) to protest university underfunding. Do students not care that course offerings are being cut, classes are getting larger (professors overworked), facilities lacking or even that tuition fees are rising? (Eight per cent hike next year.)

wmt’d. from page 9 The university sub-culture should e an alternative to the larger, indocinated mainstream seety. Univerty is a place for idealism, radicalism, place where views are expressed zgardless of the practicalities of the l eaI” world. So why isn’t it working? Jhy don’t the majority of students ;et involved”? Most students complain that they

do not have enough time, and that’s part of it Heavy course loads, job competition and the “four-month”’ lifestyle in co-op do not leavemuch time for anything else except highlyintensive stress relie*rs (ie. the Bombshelter). Some think that one person cannot make a difference and here is a fundamental problem: the emphasis on individual achievement at university {and North American society in general) has reached such propm-

tions that we are unable to value achievement We’ve in&roup stitutionalized and marketed every different service and need so that we could all become independent .as long as we have the financial means. What we seem to have forgotten, to Paraphrase Canadian environmentalist Judith Plant, is the real security of mutual interdependence. It seems to me that it’s up to students to remind everyone.

THEWOmWNTOLEARN ABOWTHE HIGH COST OFA MEDICALEMERGENCY WHILE OUTSIOECANADAd ’ IS BYACCIDENT

The firing of Peter Kormos, the revelation that he hired a wife-beater to help him in his campaign against sexism in advertising and Bob Rae’s Public announcement that university tuition fees are going up eight Per cent have all caused people to cry foul. Many members of the public feel betrayed since they elected an NDP government to get rid of all the politicians and replace them with real people like you and me. Fat chance. _ It seems rather impossible thatPeople wil1 ever stop whining and accept some of the responsibility themselves. When you get right down to it, people vote and elect governments so they can have someone to blame when something goes wrong. Using a government to create social and economic institutions is a method of passing the buck. People like Brian Mulroney, Bob Rae, and Sheila Copps don’t get into politics for the money or the prestige or the fame. They do it because they are tired of having others control their destiny and tired of complaining. If you take a look around, it’s easy to notice that those who do the most complaining about the government are those who know the least about it. Of course, there are le,unate complaints about policy decisions, but we need to able tc cr+?;;Cr uzformatively. To simply babble on about something we know nothing about doesn’t help anybody. For instance, how many times have you seen your Member of Parliament? Do you know what he or she does daily, or what his or her duties entail? 1 would guess probably not. Yet how many times have you complained about his or her job? How my times hive you complained about thegovernment - either federal or provincial? Chances are there is a rather big discrepancy between the two actions. It should be noted that I’m not distinguishing between the political par-. ties. This is because there aren’t big enough differences between any of the parties - Conservative, NDP, Liberal, Reform, Libertarian, or any other to warrant any in-depth discussion of their differences. partySo, having just defended a system of government, I’ve got to say that I really don’t believe in it. We are taught that there is no way of a society existing without a government, that anarchy means without order, people killing each other in the streets, mass confusion. But anarchy means without government, not without order, and we have extremely little confidence in ourselves to say that we couldn’t exist without someone telling us what to do. If we had only a free association of individuals, then this would cause people to be a little more responsible for their actions, and not allow us to use the government as a scapegoat. Maybe then people would be a little less prone to whining about their situation and a bit more responsible. . But I doubt it.

Thus, we encourage members of the community to attend this final open house at Federation Hall to view the preliminary final report,” George said. The open house will include displays, and possibly models, of the planning firm’s options and possibilities for the final plan. University officials and representatives of the planning firm will be on hand to answer questions. The University and the planners were very pleased with the turnout at the previous open house in January, which drew about 1,000 people. The plan will serve as the University’s master plan for development Well into the next century. Ample free parking will available in Lots Rand M, adjacent to Federation Hall.

.The death of Resurrection described

by Michael H. CEftcm hprint staff At Resurrection College Seminary, says one soon-tube Catholic priest, “We go against the grain of society in many ways - and we love it!” The prevalent attitude on a university campus - almost any campus is usually not wholly favourable toward religion. Especially if that religion expects its adherents to follow any sort of strict moral cde, or to conform to any dogmatic statements regarding “truth” or some sort of objective reality and purpose for human existence.

life, not just in education: encouragement to pursue one’s own interests, while at the same time experiencing the kind of training a person needs to develop human qualities, such as honesty, sensitivity, self-awareness, patience and forbearance, concern for others, critical thinking and the pursuit of truth. One does not need to agree with their beliefs to recognize that their programme really does offer those opportunities, cannot which generally, perhaps not at all, be obtained by a mere individual in a mass with other mere individuals, which seems to describe many people’s university experience. Is the programme esoteric and impractical? Hardly. In the February, 1991 STV Newsletter, the author of the lead article characterized such qualities as those of “older peopIe , . , tempered by the wisdom that comes from experience” (David Huron, “A View of UW Engineering’). Is it better to wait until we are “older” for the experiences of life to shape us arbitrarily into the kinds of people we shall be? Or is there not something more attractively and more importantly h--like in the active pursuit and personas shaping of character, even while one is relatively young? The Resurrection seminarians do not see themselves as people somehow better t&n other people. They do recognize that there is a unique, special quality in the lifestyle they have chosen. It is a lifestyle which orients them toward goal setting and goal achievement. It helps them to define their own purposes’ and enables them to fulfill those aims. All university students experience some growth while they are here, but, Rod noted, most other graduates “only appreciate these years in retrospect.” The seminarians’ programme enables them to’k aware of changes in ourselves and what we’re being challenged to do” and to become, while they are doing it. Although most seminarians enroll with the intention of becoming priests, not all necessarily do. They allow themselves and one another to be directed by inner feelings and a sensitivity to their personal needs. Not everyone, they might say, is “called” to be a priest. Eliminating negative pride, greed, or fear, each is encouraged to choose his own course in life, priesthood being only one of many good options. Some people do enroll and subsequently leave the programme. Generally this is not because of disapintment with the seminary, but lEci?l use they have sensed a different focus or “calling” in life. “If in the future I decide priesthood is not for me,” says Rod, “I will have been a better person for being here. . .‘. I have been in the right place at the ril$t time.” Michael adds that the seminary couples enthusiasm for life “with generosity and sensitivity . . . . I wouldn’t like to be anywhere eke.” John concludes, “this spirituality has proven the test of tim& All the saints we honour, their witness is proof that this is true.“Contemporary society prefers things that are “disposable,” he ‘said. Although the selfrealizing methods of the seminary programme seem antiquated or obsolete, present society is hardpressed to find their equal outside of similar religious progammes. ‘This reality”’ John says, “has proved valid.” Going against the grain of contemporary society has been the undeliberate reality of Resurrection College for 28 years. Now society seems to be forcing its will on the college. The Resurrection& haven’t lost hope that the programme will itself be resurrected in the near future - the hope that there are still others who share their vision of humanity, and will want to discover it more WY.

Course evaluation project at WLU

Ergonomics ‘R’ us from UW News

by Cathy-Jo Noble courtmy The Cord Laurier students may have a better way to choose classes next year. The Wilfrid Laurier University Students Union courSe evaluation project is in the works to provide students with candid reviews of courses offered at WLU. The success of the project counts heavily on volunteers from the

It will be a booklet to be pmvidedfiee to all stzaikms. university community. ‘“this is the first time such a programme has been tied at Laurier, and so far the response has been great,” said WLUSU President Stuart Lewis. The aim of the project is to make a “WLU Course Calendar Supplewhich will contain the ment,” opinions of students about courses they have taken. This will help others students decide which courses they want to take, and what to expect from them. To gather opinion, surveys are being given out to interested students to take to their classes and get filled out by classmates. The results of the surveys will be compiled in the summer and the booklet should be ready for September. It is uncertain at this time as to what form the calendar wiIl finally take, but WLUSU hopes it will be a booklet to be rovided free to all students. Ic e want to cover as many courses as we can, and hopefully in time all courses will be in the calendar sup- plement,” said Dana Pesce, co-. organizer of theproject with Melissa Blease. The surveys include qu&ions on the instructor’s teaching abilities, level of difficulty, interest, and reading material. There are also openended questions concerning features the students like and/or disliked about the course. The surveys are to be done outside of class time so it will not interfere with the class nor require the professor’s permission to do it. “It is a fact that the ten minutes between classes belong. to nobody, and can be used to fill out the survey,” Lmvis said. Department of Political Science chair, Dr. Barry Kay, feels that this type of survey must be approached with a great deal of caution.

Theprofessik’s decisionshoulii be respected ‘In principle I think student evaluations can be a good idea if in f& it is properly undertaken,” Kay said. Kay also said that it was a case of poor judgment for the committee to state that the professor’s permission is not necessary. For the fir&year, at least, the prof’s decision should be respected, Kay added. Pesce explained that the reason it was decided to bypass professors’ permission was so that students would not feel intimidated by their profs. Kay also had concerns about running the survey so late in the year, when class attendance is generally very weak. He felt that open-ended questions could also be a problem since the results will be open to different interpretations. Pesce said that this should not be a problem, since so far the results of the surveys have been quite consistent. A test-run of the survey was done

with the Political Science department earlier this year. The actual survey in place now is the result of an analysis of the test-run results, which found the questions that yield the best results. “We handled the organization of the programme very professionally by having the test-run. We also had a lawyer check out the survey before distribution,” Pesce said. The surveys are available in the Students’Union ofices on the second floor of th$ Student Union Building. The proposed deadline for the surveys was March Z&1991, but Pesce said the date will be extended to ensure a good response. ‘The survey is not out to hurt anyone, but I can understand how some profs may feel threatened,” Pesce said. “But in the long run, it wiIl save students and profs hassles over registering for, and then dropping, courSeS.”

Both Lewis and Pesce said “this is not a witch hunt.”

A new ergonomics program has been created within the Kinesiology Department at the University of Waterloo. This co-operative education program is intended to help prepare graduates who will co,ntribute to solving workplace problems, particularly in safety ergonomics in order to reduce the risk of injury and enhance human performance. The course requirements have been selected to .provide students with a thorough background in the biophysical and behavioural sciences of human motion as well as related measurement and problem-solving skills. The 0 tion integrates courses with related Pour-month work terms, giving students the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom to the working world. Students gain the expertise to evaluate and solve the prQblems of human movement in industrial, business, educational, c

rehabilitative, and social settings. Ergonomics is generally defined as the &forts made to make the workplace both comfortable and safe for people performing their jobs. This can range from designing efficient and adjustable clerical work stations to engineering an assembly line task to minimize the risk of injury from loads that must be lifted or from doing tasks that require repetitive motion. Fitting the job to the ‘work whether in the office or in an industrial setting - is dependent upon the workers’ interaction with the surrounding environment. In this expanding career - area, kinesiologists are involved in the assessment and- prtiription of solutions to problems in the workplace. These include personmachine interaction; matching skill, strength, and endurance levels of workers with * job demands; employee fitness; workplace boredom and fatigue; protective equip ment evaluation; and safety; industrial injury mechanisms such as

acute and repetitive strains to the lower back and wrists. This limited-enrolment program requires the completion of 44 term courses and incorporates courses from other departments such as Systems Design Engineering and Management Science. “Much of the initiative for the option came from Prof. Robert Norman, who will become UW’s Dean of Applied Health Sciences in July,” said Prof. Stuart McGill, coordinator of the program. 0ver the past several years, Norman has selected the courses and designed the curriculum for. the option. ‘The option is part of the evolution of the kinesiology program,” said Prof. Pat Bishop, who chairs the department. “It will provide students with the tools to assess human motion in a variety of settings and apply them to workpl?lce safety.” It is anticipated that the first of about 10 students to be admitted to the program will be selected in the spring, with the course work to begin in the fall.

The result will be increased prices and decreased consumption for many industries, but thisisfineit is simply the “market place producing efficiency.” If the cost of a can of pop becomes prohibitive because it costs $4.75 to produce the can, the producer will either go out of business, or find a cheaper container for the pop. And when a person refuses to pay $4.75 for the, can of pop, “the consumer is speaking with more power than any lobby campaign or educational campaign can duplicate.” A central theme of Smith’s speech was that the market is a very powerful instrument that can and should be used to save the environment. Smith pointed out his frustration with a group of environmentalists and scientists that use “empirical evidence and the scientific method” to prove that the planet is being environmentally degraded, and then abandon the scientific method completely when r&-ring to the role of economics in environmental protection.

On Friday, March 8, Professor Larry Smith of Waterloo’s own Economics department, presented his views on how economics can save our environment. The event was organized and attended by Environmental and Resource Studies students, who invited the Entrepreneurs Club, Economics Society, PC Youth, NDP, and Young Liberals. In his speech Smith claimed that “unless policies for the environment are made consistent tith economic principles, the protection of the enviironment will fail.” . He insisted that economics% not hostile to It is concerned with the environment.” individual and human welfare, and since a healthy environment is obviously in an individual’s best interest, economics cannot be responsible for raping the etivironment. Smith said that theor&ically, economics “should have been in the forefront of warning about the dangers of environmental wreckage,” and the profession deserve criticism from the environmental moveinent urging a quicker solution to the problem.

Smith advocated “full cost pricing.” Presently, the price one pays a company for a product does not include the true social and environmental costs. If an industry pollutes the environment during production, they Romantkb~~

‘this mistake, and that David Suzuki has done a commendable job in raising environmental awareness in Canada and the world, his statements about economics are “preposterous and fundamentally flawed.”

He feels that making such ridiculous statements about economics undermines any credibility Suzuki may have gained with his scientific assessment of the state of our planet. As a result,the elite of this country tend to ignore him. One misconception that Smith felt should be addressed is Suzuki’s claim that the exponential growth of our economy cannot continue forever. Smith pointed out that “the bulk of Canada’s economic production does not now consume resources to any significant degree,” and that sewices like music, medicine, and teaching, need not be curtailed to make

ToSsample or not to sample? (ntat isn’t the question)“* by Doug white special to Imprint

barrier was the Ensoniq Mirage, which came out around 1985. Although it was only an fb bit sampler, it offered features that had previously only been found in extremely expensive keyboards. For instance, the Mirage was totally software-driven, which meant that updates to the operating system were available without the ha&e of replacing hardware. That made it extremely tempting for third-party companies to create alternative operating systems - including systems as complex as full wave table synthesis. Furthermore, much of the power of the Mirage was not in the way it sampled, but in fact what it could do to sounds after they were sampled. Perhaps one of the most difficult things to do when sampling sounds is looping This enabks you to have a sound sustain over a long ciod of time without having incredibly le ngthpey sample times (sample time is directly related to how much memory you have, and computer memory is cheap, but not that cheap). There are two kinds of loo one can create on a sample: single cycle, wr ich is one waveform repeating very rapidly; and multiple cycle, which has many waves repeating. The problem is creating a smooth loop without “clicks and bumps” Sampler designers have devised what is known as %-fade looping,“ whereby the start and end points of the sample are meshed together, creating a seamless loop. Even if a sampler does not have this feature, there are computer programs available which can perform this function. However, it is much easier to perform the operation on a sampler since this means that there is no need to import and export large amounts of data via the relatively slow MIDI data stream. In making tht~ decision as to whether or not a sampler is the instrument for you, it is certain that .you tilt be bombarded with informa-

There are very few keyboard players who haven’t made a decision to buy or not to buy a sampler. It is indeedhardto decidebetween s thesizers which use samples as part of tr eir voicing architecture, and samplers which have a built in analog-to-digital converm ter for converting sound into numerical data. Tfiepurposeofthisarticle~todescribethe positive attributes of getting an actual Sampler. However, the decision is yours and I should warn you now that sampling takesup a lot of time if you really want to get into it. The best analogy that one cm make when trying to discern between a sampler and a synth is this: with a sampler, the user is constantly trying to put sounds into it, whereas withasynth,theuseristqingtogetsounds out of it. In order to qualify this general statement, I should mention that many modern keybo&s can import samples into them. Many ine~riencd users of samplers only find applications for their machines that revolve around frying in vocal parts and sound effects into what are considered completed musical tracks. Simply by lookirtg at the various thirdparty listings of samples available on the market today, one can find a near-inf%te number of sounds ranging from drums to basses to orchestral sounds to classic analog synth sounds.

Though

one may que&ion

the

ability of samplers to capture the performance-oriented sound of analog instfuments, this isa concern more applicable to older and cheaper models of samplers. Today, you should be. able to find a sampler that will allow you to shape static, raw samples into lush and changing sounds. One of the first samplers to break the price

tion regarding different bit reklutions and sample rates in the literature supplied by the manufacturers. Obviously, the general rule is that higher the resolution and sample rate, the better the sample will be. However,’ there are two factors that one must take into account. First, there are many instances where a “dirty” sample would be desirable. Sampled sounds can gain richness through random noise introduced by lower resolutions. Second, it is not always desirable to use the highest available sam@ng rate; some samlers have rates as high as 52.1 Kilohertz. The P‘CWIL rzlle has always been to take the highest frequency of the sound that you wish to samle and double it to get the best sampling rate. R owever, many people find that there is a lot of noise - whether from ekctromagnetic induction from patch cables etc, or simply from incorrect sampling rates which intrtiuce new frequencies into the sound introduced into the samples when they use rates over 40 Khz. A simple solution to this problem is to use a lower sampling rate. I have found the best results from using rates between 32 and 38 Khz. One might wonder whether there is a lot of fidelity lost, but in fact a sample rate of 32 Khz will yield a playback frequency response of about 16 Khz. The real problem that may occur is in transposition to other pitches. For, as a sample is played back at slower speeds (and thus lower pitches), there can be a lot of graininess in the sound. The solution is to multi-sample the sound at intervals, such as every octave. Thus, even lower-end samplers which have maximum resolution rates of 32 Khz can still be useful live and in the studio. Hopefully, this information will assist you in deciding whether or not 6amplels are for you. With a little work and/or money, it is possible to have access to virtually unlimited

The mcx3t current samplers on the market offer mariy new features previously only found on computers and the most sophisticated keyworkstations, Prices have dropped substantially, which now allows musicians access to N-bit sampling at under $$ooO. It is easy to find support for most sampler9 in terms of enormous presampled sound libraries, so you may find those standard and unusual sounds already sculptured for you. In light of the ever&anging keyboard market, the consumer has many choices, but not all of those choices may be the best for the money. So one possible alternative may be to look at sampling as a flexible and relatively rion-obsoleting option. sounds.

Smith speaks entire spfxtrum of their value. Smith countered by Wing out that economics assumes a rationa r consumer, and that economics simply requir= adjustment to find a closer de% tion of values. Another concern mised was that if Canada implemented full cost pricing fust, would there not be a black market of goods from other countries that do not have to pay the full costs of production? Smith admitted that the Crst countries to implement full cost pricing would suffer. He agrees that the policy should be worldwide in scope and that it could t&p decades; but feels that it is not an UnreaIistic gc1~1,and that society should demarrid full cost ---z-z-pncq. Smith’s message? Get the market place working for you. Policies to protect the environment must serve the test of.economic I viability, or they will fail.

RUSmON’S Thisthreatisexcerptedfromaletterwritten by Thomas J. Collins, Provost of the University of Western Ontario (UWO). Dated January 11, 1991, it was delivered to an undergraduate member of the Academic Coalition for Eqality (ACE) following her -pation in a “demonstration” the previous day that Collins claims “(led) to the disruption of Classroom activitv.” The class in e&ion is Fsycholog) 2551 ( Personality and B everopment), taught by Philippe Rushton, The protest involved about 20 people, who p&e&d and sang outside the classroom. After completkg his twc+hour lecture in 90 minutes, Rushton dismissed the class. According to UwO’s student newspaper, ?%e Gazette, the only police officer present at the protest thought that it was “conducted in a responsible manner, and that the protesters were not being disruptive.” Despite this and contrary to the experience of any undergraduate - Collins response was q&k and unequivocal: ‘W?ten a class has to be terminated prematurely, that is the result of disruption.” Then, with the toughest threat he could issue, Collins followed up a statement that LJWO president George Pedersen made on January 2 that no “disruptions” would be tolerated. But what is a “disruption”? Not pickets, for Pedersen himself participated in one last fall against underfunding. The UWO administration has never been specific. Yet an examination of the situation at Western reveals that, however disruptive ACE has been, Philippe Rushton has been no less a nuisance to students and others at UVVO. After all, he started the controversy,but hii right to be on campus has not been threatened by the administration, like the r&hts of ACE members. Why are Pedersen et al so eager to smother anti-Rushton protest and so keen to protect Rushton?

THEORY

Rushton claims that the three “races” diverged at different times: “In years since emergence from the ancesti hominid line, Mongoloids 41,ooO, Caucas&ls llO,ooO, and Negroids 200,M)o.” His 1989 paper attempted tobring together data on over 50 muKfirious b&&our4 and psychological factors, all of whost &C tibutions ranked @‘Whites” intermediately between “OrienW and ‘Blacks” in some way. These criteti bridged biology and society; they included “brain size and intelligence, rate of maturation sex4ity, per-

Rushton’s theory is easy to under&and, but very difficult to believe or to treat as academic work. It teems with ambiguities, vague terminology, and socially biased concepts, and in the past two years, the vast preponderance of the scientific evaluation has lambasted Rushton. Most of his own sources have charged that Rushton misinterpreted and/or misused their research - including Christopher Stringer, whom Rushton credits for the backbone of his theory: the racial divergence sequence. In addition, not only does Rushton fail to define “Oriental-White-Black,” but he assigns rankings to these group for such categories as “activity level/ “autiousness,” “excitability,” and “sociability.” This is clearly mbiguous terminology, and because it occurs in concert with questionable scientific methods, i.ll0gM use oi data, a failure to 4% close contradictory evidence (even from the same sources), and because it is used to sup port conclusions that reflect typical “rightwing” racist ideology, strong suspicions have been raised about Rushton’s motives. By any scientific standards, his sweeping research is

THE PIONEER

THEBEGINNING

On Janua& 19,1939, in the Sausalito’Rtim at the San F&n&co Hilton, Rushton delivered a paper, entitled “Evolutionary Biology and Heritable Traits (With Reference to Oriental-White-Black Differences),” to the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Scence (MS). This 13-page paper caused quite an uproar with its claims that economic, political, and so&I conditions of all people can be defined by their “races,” and that there exists a quantifiable, tripartite hierarchy distribution in which ‘Orientals” are on top, “Whites” are second, and ‘%lacks” are last. This was not the first time.that Rushton presented his views on race. He has written prolifically, and has often acknowledged the assistance of other prominent psychologists. He has co-authored titles with at least 34 other academics, While much of his publishing occurs in journals of minor repute, his work, has also appeared in at least 14 more important journals. In 1984, he published his ~erarchical theory in the Annals of Theoretical l%ychology. In 1986, he laid out his theory of biolo@cal determinism in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. In 1987 and 1988, Rushton co-authored two articles in the Journal of Research in Personality in which he argued that racial differences in seyl? 31 morphology and behaviour are the results of C’ ution The reviewers accepted the papr, even though much of the evidence it cited is of extremely dubious quality. (The 1896 fan-

required to rem& apolitical, in November 1989 it proposed the abandonment of social, &xational, and housing policies that aimed at mixing races, arguing that all differences between them are due to the genetically determined inteiligence differential. Harry Weyler, the president of the Pioneer Fund, insisted that “raising the intelligence of blacks or others still remains beyond our capabilitia” Again, on July 8,1990, a letter was printed in the Britbh newspaper 7%e Indepmdmt, to which Rushton was cosignatory. The letter was in response to an article that appeared on March4,1990, in which the Pioneer Fund was criticized for its activitie and its sponsor&p of academk racism. The letter was signed by Weyler and four oth$r Pioneer Fund recipients: Hans Eysenck (v of London), Linda Got&&on (U of Delaware), Richard Lynn (U of Ulster), and Roger Pearson (editor, Mankind Quatier( Together, they defended the Fund and in& ted that their research - founded upon the thesis that race is a b&c and deterministic trait - represents the vanguard of science. Observed raciaJ differences, including crime, illiteracy, poverty and unemployment, are genetically caused. Consequently, “effective” public policies will only be those that seek to apply this conclusion to the “problems of race betterment.” Clearly, Rushton’s acadpmic activities sup port these extra-academic interests. The same is true for the F’ioneer-funded research performed by Eysenck, Lynn, Pearson, Gottfredson, and several others - including the notorious William Shockley and Arthur Jensen, the latter proudly “America’s leading proponent of black inferiority.” Taken together, they form a tightly knit group of people who cite, review, and acknowledge each other’s research and books. They maintain, with money from the Pioneer Fund, the journal Mankind Quarterly, dedicated to “race-science” and “racial history” Many, including Rushton, contribute to fkwnality and Individual Dttewrtts, edited by Eysenck,assisted by Jensen-The combined efforts of these people represent the current phase of a eugenics movement many thought was long dead. *

sonality, and social organization.” Rushton argued that since these were aU distributed in a way that “matched” the claimed racial divesence sequence, there was good reason to htiothesizk a causal link bet&een “race” &d %ese phenomena. More specifically, Rushton believes that all racial differences are manifestations of the genetic “reproduction strategies” of different evolutionary experiences. Africans exhibit prolific reproduction with offspring receiving little parental care, and Orientals pursue restrained reprodution with much parental care. Elaborating, he wrote that “it seems reasonable to postulate that as populations moved north (from Africa) they encountered more challenging environments . . . and thus the more stringent were the selection pressures for intelligence, forward planning, and sexual and personal restiaint.” Based on his research, Rushton made two predictions “about the course of world history”: that the I%ific Rim will develop faster and “eventually outdistance” Europe and North Amerjca; and that because AIDS is a transmitted disease, the sexually “‘uninhibited” Black “race” is endangered.

- CHRISa IYXTER superficial and clearly fails to prove his conelusion that race plays a causal role in personal development. Yet Rushton continues to insist upon its veracity. Why? Is h& simply raci&? In numerous interviews, Rush& has certainly given this impression. For according to Rushton, “all so&I problems in the world are related to ethnicity.” When asked by a Globe and Mail reporter what he would do if a black student complained that a low mark was the result of racism, Rushton replied: “‘. . . let’s face it, that’s what blacks do (ask for special treatment). We’ve had to change everything in educational systems and professional schools to make sure blacks do not fail in large numbers. But if we accept the alternative arguments that blacks aren’t as , intelligent then what we have done is lower the standards to allow more in.” (04/02/89) RUSHTON

AND

FRIENDS

Racist or not, Rushton does not work alone. His research has been financed by the American-based Pioneer Fund. Though this fund is tax-exempt and therefore officially

FUND

The fund was established in 1937 by the textile machinery millionaire Wickltie Draper. It was incorporated the same year b>;’ two scientists: Harry Laughlin and Frederick Ckbom, both of whom had connections to Nazi eugenics and sterilization laws. The Pioneer Fund is officially chartered to help research into “problems of heredity and eugenics in the human race.” The fund had two purposes: the first was to encourage a Nazi-like breeding programme to propagate those who are “descended predominantly from white persons who settled in the original 13 states prior to the adoption of the Constitution of the United States.“The second was to encourage academic research and the “dissemination of information, into the problem of heredity and eugenics.” Some of the earlier activities the fund pursued included the distribution of Nazi eugenic propaganda films, opposition to the desegregation of schools, and efforts to use the House Un-American Activities Committee to send the “genetically inferior” American blacks back to Mea. In 1960, MankindQuatterly was founded in Scotland by Professor R Gayre to promote scientific evidence that “racial fundamentals” are: “all important” in human society. Gay-re was developing further the work of Nazi theoretician Hans F. K. Gunther, and was assisted

by many

notorious

and active racists,

including Donald Swann, Robert Kutner, and J. Hofmeyer. Mankbtd Qlrartprrv moved to Washington DC in the late 1970s under the control of Pearson, who had already received much Pioneer funding. Lynn, “the leading proponent of the oriental superiority theory” according to


Barry Mehler, has been associate editor of the journal for Over 15 years. In 1987, Lynn invited Rushton to write an article “which elaborated on the poIitical and social consequences of his biological determinism.” Ultimately, the logic of his theory is that, at the most fundamental level, individuals are subordinate parts of a biological nation, So&l and political conflict, according to Rushton, must be understood as conflicts between gene pools. Racism has its basis in genetics, and egalitarianism brings only frustration. We ought not to interfere with the natural tendency toward racial purity. This entails policies. from raciaI segregation, marriage restrictions, curbs on immigration, pressures on “superior” specimens to reproduce, and pressures on “inferior” (dysgenic) specimens not to reproduce; to more radical measures like (involuntary) sterilization, apartheid, and genocide.

Eugenic&s have spent much of their energy on the issue of intelligence. They stress the inadequacy of “environmentalist” theories to completely account for differences in Intelligence Quotient The ideas that the Pioneer Fund presented in 77~ Independent represent their accumulated ideological capital. That is, through their efforts and those of others, “race-science” has risen to the level of acceptance, such that the Pioneer Fund could gleefully report a survey in which a majority of 661 scientists surveyed believe that racial disproportion in socioeconomic status is not due solely to discrimination and entionmental causes. What they did not mention, however, was that “the single most compelling reason convincing scholars of the genetic component to IQ was the recent barrage of studies on identical twins reared apart.” Barry Meyler, writing in 1990, went on to report that: The source of the barrage is Thomas Bouchard’s Minnesota Twin Study Project. Although only a few articles on personality and character traits have appeared in refereed journals, the Minnesota group has announced conclusions and generated massive publicity about the heritable nature of personality traits In order for the scientific cornmunity to have an opportunity to evaluate the twin study, a book-length monograph is needed. Such a monograph was promised by 1987. The twin project is now entering its second decade and a f&-length study has still not appeared. Yes, the Pioneer Fund supports Bouchard’s study, even though it has not been published in a reputable journal. But it is not kept a sec-

ret. As more time passes, more media coverage continues to impress eugenic ideas and increase their general acceptace. MEDIA

COVERAGE

On March 8, 1989, Rushton appeared on the Gerald0 show. That he did so is unsurprising given the tactics that the Pioneer Fund has used in the past. When Jensen published a per in 1969 in the Harvard Educational If;”eview that claimed that genetics accounts for some of the racial differences in okrved intelligence, there was a fIurry of m&b coverage. Excerpts were printed in Tke 2&~&r&y Review and Jensen summarized his ideas in WSNews & World Reprt. Articles appeared in Newsweek, Science Navs, lie Educutional Digest, the N&v York 7Inm. Commonwealth, Nutional Reviav, and the Nav Republic. In fact, Jensen, along with Shockley, became household names as a result of this. Much the same thing has happened with Rushton Rather than trying to develop a scientific theory through the usual channels of publishing and accepting criticism, Rushton has been trying to spread his ideas through the popular press. He has responded to peer-reviews, but has never yielded on any point. Nor does he agree that findings such as his need to report’ with great clarity, preferring to be vague. He does not agree that the limitations of such findhgs need to be emphasized more strongly. In fact, he has ignored any standard for the dissemirration of research results. The strategy of the Pioneer Fund is to use a closed, well-tided group to subvert the peer-review system by using the high status ?f academia to spread propaganda through society, and influence people - their peers included - in this way. And they have enjoyed much success.

ACADEMIC

Rushton cause? The negative impact of his “theory” on the African community, and Asian as well, has been overlooked. At UWO, people are outraged. In the name of freedom, a public platform has been given to the intellectual backbone of an ominous neofascism. The role played by academia in laying the groundwork for Nazism and apartheid must not be forgotten Their power to legitimate is perhaps the greatest of any group. “ckdmary” racists do not have the same opportunities as tenured ones - Gerald0 does not invite nobodies. But other high-profile people are con~trairted too. In autumn of 1984, Japanese Pri,me Minister Nakasone said that because the American work-force contained so many

Rushton has made more potent assertions, and yet does not apologize. In fact, many rally to his side despite the very strong case that charges Rushton with abuse of his position and scientic incompetence. This is why the Pioneer Fund pursues its aims through academic institutions. But if our universities are to maintain any integrity,then the definition of “academic freedom” must reflect the interests of all those affected, and no *‘Rushton’% should be tolerated.

FREEDOM

Rushton is not simply part of a scientific community that is generally becoming increasingly informed by “race-science.” Rather, he is part of that very small minority that is actively pulIing the scientific community in that direction. He has lent his status as a LMKkprofessor to -pub&lypruTte $F$atil vvF . _ _.. * . Pioneer Fund, whose designs include the institutionabzation of a race hierarchy. Is this “academic freedom”? What about the academic freedom of students? Should we have no say in who funds, and thereby directs, the research of our professors? Should we not have some protection from the insult and the hurt that those like

low-IQ Blacks and Hispanics, the US could not compete economically with Japan. Condemned as a racist, Nakasone later apologized.

The dignity and class which you displayed will not be forgotten. There will be a lot of players who will not be back next year due to graduation.

You are the best fans in the world and we are sorry we coddn’t bring a National Championship back for you. There will z&o be a lot of players who will be back, myself included, who are all ready and excited about next season when we win the whole thing. We hope you will be back with us bangin your pots and pans and showing al: the other universities that Waterloo fans are second to none.

The Canadian Interunivetsity Athletic Union hockey nationals may have been decided, long before they even took place, back when the head office made up the schedule. Why have the two semi-final games on separate days - Friday night and Saturday afternoon - with the second one less than 24 hours before the championship game on Sunday afternoon? It makes no sense, This arrangement lays out an immediate and obviously unfair advantage - a one day rest period for only one of the two hdists. Either give both teams the break or neither. While NHL playoff series may end at dihFerent times (Le. one-series may go four straight, the other may go to the maximum), at Ieast the league organizers give at least one day of rest to both teams before the Stanley Cup hals. Simple, right? The day of rest is a recovery period for those tired, aching muscles.

Not everyone can take three days out of their weekend to spectate the event. And surely the same objective could have been reached while still holding the two semis on the same day. (Just make sure there is a threehour break between the contests for an overtime leeway and to give time forthearenastafftoclearthebuilding for the second game admission.) Then both teams advancing to the finals would be on an even keel. I’m sure it would have made for a much closer championship game. But if the all-mighty dollar takes precedence over an exciting, close, and fair national competition, then why bother having it. Its outcome is already determined.

It is impossible to describe the enormous impact the Warrior Hockey fans had on the team throughout thti 1990-91 season, and ,eswy during’ the playoffs. The pots and pans, the air horns, and, most of all, the unwavering enthusiasm, are memories which all members of the organization will carry with us for the rest of our lives. Thanks to everyone who made 1990-91 a success, especially all those, too numerous to mention, who made my job as General Manager a lot easier and more enjoyable, but never got the credit they deserved. From everyone in the Athletic department, to the countless others who I depended upon day-in and day-out to make things run smoothly, I thank you for everything, You have made my two years with the Hockey Warriors a most enjoyable and memorable experience.

I don’t want to take anything away from the CIAU champions, the UQTR Patriotes, nor make any excuses for the Alberta Golden Bears. Trois Riviera was, unquestionably, the best team in the tournament and probably would have won anyway. But don’t you think the Alberta Golden Bears should have been given the opportunity for an equal rest period, in order to face UQTR at ‘100 per c&t? Furthermore, the fact that Alberta started the championship game just 19 hours after their 73minut*long double-overtime squeaker -over the Waterloo Warriors, tipped the advantage toward the Patriotes even more. I doubt the CIAU schedule planners added the factor of overtime, or double overtime for that matter, into their planning either. What they were probably more concerned with was inoney. By having the two semi-final games on separate days, the CIAU figured it could draw a bigger pot.Come on.

Go west, young men _ by EUiotte FA&IW.CI Halifax is a beautiful city, but that’s no reason it should host the CTAU men’s basketball championship eight years in a row. Two weekends ago, the eight best basketball teams in Canada ventured down to Nova Scotia’s capital for the Final Eight. For some schools - Brandon, British Columbia, and Victoria - the trip is much longer than for others. The eastern teams are screaming about the fact that monetary problems prevent them from making far road trips, Some schools have shut down their football programs because the financial crunch is so bad. But schools ail over the country are feeling that pinch as well. Teams out west should not have to spend thousands of extra dolIars travelling out east every year. It’s almost incredible western schools have not screamed bloody murder since several athletiti programs of their own have fallen to the The best site would be Hamilton’s Copps Coliseum. This type of centralized location would keep travel expenses to a minimum for the eight teams as a whole. It’s almost certain that western teams would prefer this plan and the expenses for the eastern teams wouldn’t be so bad. Before you get into the argument that this makes the Ontario teams richer and gives them even’ more of an advantage, remember that Ontario has more teams invited than anyone else.

one or two teams at best, In Ontario, where three or four teams often get invited, it kakes more sense. Cops Coliseum has other advantages. Its centralized location also allows for a bigger fan base - much for the same reason of cheaper travel. Because the Ontario teams were “at home” so to speak, more fans could be expected. Another fact to consider is television. The Sports Network, which graciously decides to cover CIAU sports - much where CBC and CTV have decided to ignore it - is just down the 401 in Toronto. Moving the CIAUs cioser to Hamilton could possibly allow for expanded coverage, something the head honchos in Canadian university sports would slit their wrists for. Finally, a McMaster-Guelph regularseason game packed almost 5,000 people into Copps. It’s almost certain, with teams arriving from across the country, that the fan base would increase. Of course, the CIAU would be best to remember what they do for’the women’s tournament - rotate it from site to site every year. If the Atlantic schools can travel for that tournament, they can travel for this one as well.

Sisters are a no Vision Thing The Sisters of Mercy Ftieratiun Hall March 25

The Sisters of Mercy are perhaps rock’s most majestic collective. Andrew Eldritch, head and founding Sister, ought to be lauded ad infinitum for penning such masterpieces as ‘Temple of bve” and “Firstand Last and Always;” his brilliant sense of epic grandeur contrasts masterfully with his dead-pan lyrics. EIdritch is a true comic. The trouble is, people just seem not to get his humour. He dresses in black’ so his fans do too. He speaks in almost apocalyptic terms eschatological inscope - and his fans think him serious. For shame: Eldritch’s wit is not like the quirkiness

of They Might Be Giants or the ephemeral lunacy of Weird AL He bases his humour on the overseriousness which he uses to chant his slightly daft observations. E&itch’s latest troupe of Sisters includes Tony James, ex of Sigue Sigue Sputnic arid Generation X; their 1990 vinyl offering was the mildly disappointing won’ Thing, an aIbum that largely failed to capture James’s flamboyance and Eldritch’s pomposity. A minor tragedy. A tragedy continued on the concert stage. The band entered Federation Hall greeted by a shroud of mist, mist which was never to abate for the whole evening. Ever. When it got thin, they pumped more. Now, it’s true that Eldritch is no beauty king’ nor is he that animated, unless clutching and bending and twisting a microphone stand can be considered a stage show; we needn’t have seen him at all. Eldritch wisely

left the visuaI entertainment to the interpretive dancers on the side line. They wore black. But the layer of fog removed the band from the audience. of course, such was Eldritch’s purpose alienation is a big theme in Sisters’ pieces. yet, such an occult presentation removes the need to actually play instruments (which I’m sure was not the case) or even to look interested. The fog was a dumb idea. Thus essentially the band on stage did nothing but ,play instruments. That’s it No verbal interaction. No mugging for the crowd. No nothing. On top of that, their presentation of all but two of the songs was lick-for-lick the same as the album versions. I only recall ‘Temple of IAX&’ and “Gimme Shelter” as sounding variant, the former for the better, and the latter for the worse. Why, then, pay $15.00 or $17.00? Why not stay at home, burn some

incense and crank the stereo? A CD costs the same and lasts forever, and it is about as personal. I wouldn’t do it a

Hey, anyone who can hit that weird interval between “We dish the dirt, it never ends” and ‘The weaker sex, the speaker sex” in “Girl Talk” commands my undying adulation and respect. I’ve practised that one through many a shower, and it always ends in disastrous key changes. That voice, combined with Cole’s sultry stage presence (picture black velvet gloves, crimson velvet dress, and dangly fake jet earrings - with ail of the appropriate gestures) has made me a born-again jazz enthusiast. Seemed like I wasn’t the only one in z&no&-filled Humanities Theatre. Notable performances included (you guessed it) “Slow Boat to China,” about “lust on the hi& seas,” “An Occasional Man”’ “Girl T&” “Melancholy Baby,” and a sl@tly saucy rendition of Doris Day’s “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.” The Farquhar award for Unquestionably the Best Performance of the Evening went to a burning rendition of “CalIing You,” from

I can’t wait until June (or until I buy a CD player) when the Trio’s newpm duct should be available. As delightful as the songs themselves were the anecdotes Cole told about them. Cole’s description of learning “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” from her grandfather’s eighttrack player (while she sat on a phentex cushion, no less) livened up an otherwise disappointing performance of it. She also credits her grandmother w&h teaching her’%ow to live my life interestingly:” all about. “Cruisin”’ and sex in cars.

Rack my brains as I might, I probably can’t dream up any witty new accolades for her, so I’ll just tell you this: Cole is one of the finest, funnies& sexiest perfmrners I have seen in years. Before I go, I should mention Waterloo native Meryn Cadell, who opened ‘Cole’s show with about 20 mirtuta of “pedormance art” - a cross between music and stand-up comedy. You really have to see her act to believe it I, for one, giggled constantly through CadelI’s wisecracking skits about wanting to be a flight attendant, being trampled while watching the Pope, and borrowing a reindeer sweater from a “hunk of burnin’ love.” Cadell’s notables included

Waters

Ride is a band which expresses itself solely through their music and the natural offshoots of their mu& F&r from being linked to any of the hyped scenes of British music and gaining credibility from this linkage, Ride as a band is somewhat of an anomaly. Steve confessed that “we are really quite boring people, you wouldn’t want to read about our personal exploits”. This mind-set definitely runs counter to the incessant prostituting of the personal activities of band member which is the norm of the British music press. Certainly the birth of Happy M& days’ singer Shaun Ryder’s child is a newsworthy event; however, it is harm dly a notable enough event to

Ride entered 1990 as the “most promising group” for the decade, Their domestic releases thus far, “Smile” and “Nowhere,” have been quietly received but have garnered high critical acclaim.

Production, orchestration and recording is a collective process for the band. * Bassist Steve Queralt concedes that “generaJiy one member has a song idea which they bring forth to the’ band” as a whole.

The strength of their latest release, Today Forwer, suggests that this band has the potential to hold the power and intensity which they, indeed, possess today forever.

This high praise just seems natwal for this band which is touted as being “the hope for the nineties,”

77kPoppiesare on patrol by Ctig NetterGeld Imprint staff A year and a half ago, Pop Will Eat Itself played Toronto at the Siboney. It was, in retrospti, one of the most memorable shows that I’ve ever been to. It restored my trust of live rap shows - a trust that had been destroyed a few months earlier by a dismal Public Enemy show at the Concert Hall.. PWEI captured the ~sence of live performance the Public Enemy missed: spontaneity. At the time, Public Enemy were just rapping over top of their albums which sounded awful because the live and recorded vocals were never quite in synch. They also lip-synched a fair bit, which proved that at the time their creativity was still limited to the studio. But the Poppies avoided all of this by using live vocals and even live guitars. They approached their live show like a good rock band would by

1 asked if he felt like a slave to the technology since the band relies on those backing tapes for their live show. “I suppose so, but if we wanted to. do it without the eight-track, we’d have to put about 97 people on stage. It would be a logistical nightmare and we’d be slaves to something else then.” He went on to describe that the whole show isn’t ‘on tape “lock, stock, and barrel. It’s basically just the drums on tape with some of the longer WmpleSthat won’t fit into the

It gets a bit dull.”

write something new. PWEI aren’l going to become like Beats International who must have put out a few hours worth of remixed stuff from Let Them Eat Bingo. are they? Clint sometimes “doesn’t see the point” of remixes. “It’s such a hit and miss thing really. Sometimes I think ‘ya should have got it right the first time,’ We’ve just done a remix of 92 lkgrm Fahrfnkit for a new ‘ single. Graham and I have done vocals on it with Sylvia, who sings on the album, so we’ve done something different with it rather than just put in a new bass&e or drum-pattern.” All this concern about the music. About creating. It seems like these guys are really mellowing out, like they’re getting old. Well, growing up anyway. The days of “Poppies are Crap” are gone, I suppw. Not that PWEI are touting that “we’re the best band in the world” attitude. They leave that to upstarts like the Charlatans who are doomed

Whereas most rap bands offer a lip-synch-anddance routine with the record playing in the background, PWEI give a different show in each city. They11 be unleashing their dog and pony show on April 9 in Toronto at RPM to support their latest effort, Cure@ &My. As part of the usual pre-show hype, I had the chance to speak to spokespoppie Clint Mansell, just home from a tour of Australia, on the big satellite from his home in Stourbridge, England. The record company paid for the call. I asked Clint about ‘that Toronto show. About halfway through, the whole backing tape died. Graham was yelling “who pulled the fucking plug?” through his bullhorn and the rest of the band screamed Nightmare. “You feel a bitof a dickhead when it Clint explained, “but happens,” there’s no point getting too wound up about it There’s nothing you can do; it’s nobody’s fault. You might as well just wait it out and get back on with the show.” Does it happen very often? “We’ve just come back from Australia, and it happened in Brisbane. The club we were playing at didn’t have enough power and we blew up the PA. We were offstage for half an hour, but we went back on and everybody was so -wound up that it was brilliant.”

The; UKKK’s most wanted, samplers that Richard and Adam play on stage.” “When we supported Public Enemy,” he went on, “it was when Professor GIiff wasn’t there, and all of his vocal bits were still going on" Clint was talking about a tour a few years ago where they opened for PE and Run DMC.

The problem has come full circle for the band now that they have their own crowd. ‘Just before Christmas they had Alan Vega of Suicide open for them. Ironically, their crowd did “exactly the same thing to him. They threw glasses and stuff like tit at him. We were fucking litid,” Not that Alan minded too much. “He seems to think it’s part of the show. He said people have been throwing stuff at him for 15 years. He loved it” me ~uncl on Pop Wii Eat Itself’s Cum For Sanity certainly favcm~ the their selfsecond half of categorization as a “punk rockfhip

Pop Will Eat Itself aren’t that arrogant If anything they’re a little too self-critical. It’s like they see themselves as England’s greatest underachievers. Clint says it’s a case where “because we don’t really consider ourselves artists, or musicians, or whatever, journalists think we’re not as important as somebody who does say they’re the greatest band to strut the earth. So you’ve got people saying that Jesus Jones or the Wonderstuff are more successful than we are as if it’s some kind of ticking race. I’m in a band to do what I want to do, to make up the songs that I want to make up. And as far as that goes, we’re a sucChange is a big part of the Pop Will cessful band.

“You did? That’s the first I’ve heard about it” G&e Sandy, thanks for the great question, I thought Clint con7 timed, “We’d love to do it, there’s no two ways about it. It would be the business. But I’m suti they’d get somebody better than us. Can’t think of who though.” Hmm, what was that I said about not being arrogant? He went on, “I can’t she how it would work, though, with people walking around in superhero costumes. I couldn’t take it seriously. Like Superman and Batman, they just didn’t work for me. All the press hype about Batman said how dark it was. Sure, it was ‘dark, but I can turn the lights up - there was nothing dark about the film. I’d have loved Clint Eastwood to be Batman. Mictiel Keaton was a wimp.” Ill have to agree with him on that one. Having people walk around the screen in superhero costumes is kind of lame. You can’t duplicate the effect of a comic book just by changing the medium to film. The narrative has to be adjusted to suit the screen. And lip-synching to a rap album is lame. The power of the music can’t be projected in cCincert if you approach the live setting with a’ canned act. Pop Will Eat Itself’s let Toronto show proved that they understand this, and that’s why theyfre a great live act.

WLU

by Michael He Clifton Imprint staff True to its form as one of Canada’s leading music schools, Wilfrid Laurier Univetsity presented .a magnificent evening of song last Saturday night Performances were given by the WLJJ Women’s Choir directed by kslie De’Ath, the Laurier Singers directed by Victor Martens, and the evening’8 highlight, Mozart’s Mass in C minor, involving both of thoie parties, and the full WLLJ Choir and WLLJ Symphony, all under Dr. Martens’ direction. The selection of songs fit well as a close to the ZRnten season. The Women’s Choir performed Schubert’s version of the 23rd Psalm, Guissepe Verdi’s ‘laudi alla Vergine Maria” -asongtotheViih&y taken from Dante’s Pamdiso - and Francis Poulenc’s “Ave Verum”. The latter piece, composed in the twentieth century, comes more to the point regarding the Easter season: All

F&the sins of all mankind kilowing the Women’s Choir, the I Lazier Singers, sixteen of the School’s best vocal performers, sang “l’hree Graduals” by Anton kkuckner, each segment reiterating the flints made in the songs the Wometi’s Choir had performed: The 23d Psalm suggests God’s care, like a shepherd for his sheep, He makes them rest in green pastures, and beside still waters. Wherever one walks, one may walk with God. Likewise ihe “first Gradual” declared, ‘This place was made by God,” emphasizing God’s ownership of the world, and that it, therefore, is “without reproof,” full of Hi grace. Verdi’s praise of the Virgin really praised the love and tenderness of God which She represents (to Catholics at any rate). As a kind of parallel, the second part of Bruckner’s _ work praised the reliable rightness of God, and of ‘Christ in whose heart is “the law of God,” or love. Fidly, the same message takes precedence in the third part bY Bruckner as in Poulenc’s “Ave Venom”, establishing the setting for the performance of Mozart’s Mass h c minor, which followed the

Mozart music and was clearly sensitive to the meaning of the Mass, and the complexity and depth of human emotion that comb&s with the solemn ritualism of the

The most powerful segments were the “Qui tollis” and the “Sanctus” and “Benedictus” which completed the event. “Qui tollis” illustrated the weight of the sins of the world which the song tells us Jesus bore. Constant repetition of hard sounding chords represented both the increasing weight of those sins, and more clearly the actual suffering of Christ under the lash, and later when he was nailed event. to the Cross.

Spinathon CKMSspinathcm byCraigN~eldandChri&qh~ Water8 Ixqrint staff

On Friday, April

5, CKMS (Radio

Waterloo 94.5 FM) will embark on Sphmthon 1991. Hosts L~ri Beckstead and Kern San Tosuosso have forsaken any semblance of the sanity which they once possessed in order

I I

to kern CKMS on the air for 24 straighi hours in the hopes of raising funds for the station. This year’s Spinathon has replaced the station’s annual week-long funding drive. The station has changed the funding drive format this year because, although there is a need for funds, there is not a need for a fullblown funding push at this time. Spina&on offers a shorter, more fun and less painful alternative for achieving the same end. This year’s ledge day has targeted the need for K rids in order to accomprish the statior& goal of a power boost from 50 watts to 250 watts. The station’s application for this power boost and subsequent frequency change from 94.5 FM, has been filed with the Canadian Radio Telecommunication Commission and the station is anxiously awaiting its approval. Money raised will also be filtered into general station improvements such as the replacement of some of the more tired pieces of technology. These improvements will consequently greatly enhance the broadcast service of the station. The Spinathon will preempt CKMS’s regular programming for that day. The newscasts will be suspended for the day and, as always, the station wiU broadcast commercialfree. Fledges may be made in advance or while making a song request during the -event. Prizes supplied by Polygram and Warner record companies will be awarded throughout this radio extravaganza. Last years pledging raised over $1,000 for the station. There is no goal set for this year’s funding drive, so the sky’s the limit. This broadcast will take place all day April 5, midnight to midnight So tune in, turn on and pledge money to your campus radio station CKMS 94.5 FM (Radio Waterloo).

by Frank SegknieS Imprint daff This release marks the second aIbum of new material from Stompin’ Tom after his self-imposed 14year exile on a farm north of Toronto. The record itself is good, although not as strong as Fidde and Song, which he made about two years ago. The album has a really goofy title, but makes up for it with a cool album cover showing an acoustic guitar through a hole in Stompin’ Tom’s stomping board. The liner notes include a letter from Stompin’ Tom which shows just how much more he cares about his audience than your typical recording artist. An interesting thing about the picture of Tom on the back of the record is that he is wearing what looks like a Casio Data Bank digital watch. It always seemed to me that he wasn’t the digital watch kind af guy. On this record, Stompin’ Tom is joined by the same people with whom he traveled across Canada with on his tour last summer, the Mary MacRay trio. Thus, the songs have the benefit of keyboards, drums, fiddle, and slide guitar to fitl out the sound. Thii is evident on “(I, be) gone with the Wind,” which was previously released onBudtheSpud. The version on this record is slightly sIower and has the slide guitar prominently m.

The most successful single figure to come out of the hop period, and possibIy the e&e history of jazz, in terms of influence, popular acclaim, vd financial reward is Miles Davis. Davis is one of only a handful of players to become household names. His influence was not limited to just one or two particular sounds in jazz; rather, he has played a major part in most of the movements since bop. Composer, leader,and ace trumpet playerDavis has become a jazz institution. Notholdinghisparticuladypricklypersonalily~~thiinisagoodstart in appreciating Davis as a player. Two early recordings by his multi-talented sextet give evidence to his deep understanding of jazz and his own individuality in it. K.&@&e and Milesturm were recorded on@ s@htIy a year apart, but are quite different in intent and achievement. For m-t peaple, these discs will sound like the jazz they are familiar with. This alone attests to the huge influence they have had. You may, in fact, not notice anything particularly unique in the tracks because they have been studied and reproduced by so many, from Iive performances to film soundtracks. Only after some patient but rewarding listening, can you pick out the subtle triumphs these recordings still have. Jazz is, after all, an art form obsessed with subtleties. A lot of critics have discussed these recordings in depth and there is a, wide degree of opinion as to their ultimate worth, but it is enough to say that they are both seminal albums. Milestones is a highly polished sextet composed of Julian Adderly on alto saxophone, John Coltrane on tenor, Red Garland on piano, PhiIIy Joe Jones on drums, and Paul Chambers on bass. AU of these players are influential in their own right and make incredible contributions to this disc. have the substance of the first. Yet too often on this CD, it seems that there is little variety between tracks. This is surprising considering the three projects Somerville has been involved ‘in. Despite his scrawny alien-like visage, Somerville has estabhhed a colossal work ethic in the music industry. His enthusiasm has even created several cover songs, to which Toronto department store. The next four songs on Side A are all pretty slow and for the most part pretty depressing (*‘t this what, peo$e say about Morrisey?). I mean, it’s nice that he sings a tribute to Rita M&Neil, as she deserves it, but the song is rather irritating. Side A ends a high note with ‘St. Ann’s Song and Reel,” which is a great stomping song, but I wish there were more songs like this on the record. Side B starts out with “Made in the Shade,” which I can onIy attribute to Stompin’ Tom being really drunk when he wrote and recorded it. Then come four great songs about Canada: “Land of the Maple Tree,‘l”A Real Canadian GirI,” “Okanagan Okee,” and “No Canadian Dream” This last one is the most notable as it is rather critical of popular radio where ‘Theyll play what they want us to

“%d’s Ahead” slows it down and here the interplay between Coltrane and Davis is heard quite clearly. One wilI feed the other notesand phrases to Which the one wiu make a reply. The other members of the band are not excluded, but wait their turn. ‘Two Bass Hit” brings out the cool and the Paul Chambers bass technique captures the moment. Kiti of Blue has been given the rare accolade of being the progenitor of modal jazz. Briefly, modal jazz is a form that implies improvisation on a> series of scales instead of a sequence of chords. This creates an irony in the album title title, for blues are a musical form based squarely on chordal im rovisation, not scales. &I e band consists of some of the same as before, and some substitutions: Julian Adderli, John Coltrane, Wyn Kelly and Bill Evanson piano (Kelly only on Freddy Freeloader), Paul Chambers, and James Cobb on drums. The entire set-up of the se&on is integral to the actual disc. The players were unaware of the arrangements before the session and onIy played the pieces once before they were recorded. The spontaneous nature of the entire disc was one of Miles’ primary goals in this expedient into group improvisation. A friend of mine once remarked that the first track, “So What,” is the easiest nine minutes of jazz, pure listening pleasure. He may be right, To be sure, the piece seems to speed by in its own relaxed manner. Again, the , interpIay between the players is central to the experience. All of the pieces have their own merit md display different avenues that modal jazz creates, The best way to approach the disc is with your own feelings and by letting the music take you where it wants. It never seems the same twice. Both recordings are available on Columbia, where the remastering has been superbly handled by Teo Macero, for clean, pure CD sound. Both are a must for any jazz collection

so d&2 expect io hear it on 4107, but I’m sure theyll play it on CKMS if you request it. The Song was recorded five yearsago, but it is&her topical to the situation in Can& today. The album ends with the remake of “(Ill be) Gone With the Wind.”

But overall, there just isn’t enough fiddle music on this record - OK,, maybe I’m partial to fiddle music, but a few more songs which make me want to pound a hole into my floor would have made it a better album. I recommend everyone to go out and buy the album though, if for nothing more than to convince the big record companies that there are people ina Canada who want to hear songs about their own country. Still, with Stompin’ Tom recording aga&, Canada is definitely a better place than it is without him.
