KITCHENER (staff )-Angry workers and students forced police and a company executive to back down in a major confrontation at the Dare Foods plant, struck here last friday. About 50 of the 300 picketers linked arms to barricade the main door to. the plant after police had attempted to violently force a passage through the picket line for John company vice-president Young. But after 15 minutes of hair-pulling and wrestling, the 20 police gave up and Young eventually went home. , He had earlier tried to drive through the picket line in his new Mercedes, but was prevented by picketers who sat down in front of the car and refused to move.

Previously, two women were taken to hospital after being struck by cars ramming through the picket line. .The two cars striking the women picketers and Young’s Mercedes were heavily battered by furious strikers, The leg,al strike has been on since may 31, following five months of negotiations. Pay at Dare starts at $1.45 per hour for women and $1.55 for men with no fringe benefits. Young’s reaction to the pay scale was “They’re getting more than they’re worth now:” (The recently announced federal minimum wage is $1.65 per hour). This is Dare’s first strike. One man was arrested in another scuffle as police attempt-.

Merit

The university committee investigating Ontario student loans decided Monday that the true meaning of OSAP loans would be destroyed if they were given out ’ for merit as well as need. Responding to- a statement by clean of women Hildegard Marsden that “there are too many hangerson at university who are wasting their own and -everyone else’s time”, the committee discussed the possibility of allowing larger grants for students with higher -marks than usuafafter first year. But the group noted that although at present there were no or few scholarships to encourage students academically at universitiesreward for merit was not as essential as consideration of need. Also ‘noted was the claim that’ lower classes are actively penalized for scholarships under present OSAP regulations. Forty percent of students receiving OSAP loans

Presenting her own brief to the committee, Marsden claimed only the student who is highly motivated, mature and who possesses originality ‘will succeed at university. She went on to suggest that university enrolment should be limited by requiring a 70 percent average from students wishing both entrance and monitary aid.

they could recommend the student receive a larger loan. History professor Leo Johnson endorsed student awards officer Albert Dejeet’s proposal that parttime students become eligible for loans, stating that since education was beginning to become a consum. er object, part-time programs should be exploited more than they are now.

probe:

Are those lakes that greqt?;. by Jay

.

Thompson

With 1970 designated as “the year of the lakes”, there is some question in the minds of many as to what should be done about the great lakes. There is even the question as to whether anything will be done, apart from talk. Yet there can be no doubt that unless action is taken, and taken immediately, irreparable-damage will occur. The situation concerning the great lakes has become desperate. Lake Erie has reached the point where it is threatening to become one gigantic weedbed, teeming with decaying vegetation and contributing to further pollution of lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence waterway. To find the causes for the condition of the great lakes it is not necessary to look very far. Municipal waste, inadequately treated, is one of the greatest offenders, adding excess nutrients to the water and contributing to the loss of water life. . Industrial waste is polluting the great lakes in the form of heat pollution, toxic chemicals,< oil slicks, mercury and solid as well as soluble substances. Industrial accidents also occur and these have risen enough to give concern. One firm accidently dumped 20,906 gallons of soybeanoil which ended up in lake Michigan. Radioactive wastes from nuclear power plants, fertilizer and insecticide runoff are t-hreatening the lakes. -_ Lake Erie, the shallowest of the great lakes and therefore the most susceptable to pollution, has been prematurely aged 15,ooO years by man. Many of its fish, such as the blue pike and walleye can no long;

UNIONS AND metropolitan from across Canada are invited to present their views to the Canadian Labor Council convention by sending resolutions to the Ottawa office of the CLC two weeks in advance. The CLC executive then sets up several resolution committees to review specific aspects of the polICY to be presented at the conference for liscussioq. These cotimittees develop c)LC policy. At the convention, executive nembers are the only people who can Iresent motions, move amendments, and Iresent resoluitions. The people on the convention floor can )nly speak to the presented motions and nove procedural motions. They vote on ill motions and are the only people who ;n theory decide whether or not a motion s passed. At the semi-annual convention held two Jeeks ago, present CLC executive presient Donald MacDonald took full advanage of the fact that motions had to have xecutive approval. Now, the ,average delegate does not ave the experience of the average xecutive member. The average delegate, despite the fact hat he was articulate,,militant, and genrally well-informed could not cope with n executive who had all the information nd knew the procedural tactics well nough to use them for advancement of ts own power. True, all motions can be sent back to heir respective committees, but that fould have meant another two years efore the issues would again be disussed. So the more militant delegates, frusrated because they knew it was virtually npossible to bring about effective change rider the existing structure, spoke in aver of the spirit of the executive’s recmmendation, though they often verbally hastised the executive for not going far nough into the realm of action. On other occassions the executive would )bby among delegates persuading some 1 endorse the committee’s stand, and inacting such speakers at will into the peakers list. Convention delegates would even tully become very tired of hearing the ame w.ords spoken over and over again nd would finally call for a vote on the ommittee’s recommendation. Such a vote would usually swing in favor f the committee despite the fact that nly 25 to, 50 percent of the house would ven bother to vote.

The reason for this is quite simple, and “I am surprised that the committee has overlooked this ‘important aspect of the manifested itself later on that week.

I would therefore like to move a lot of words to say, but none of them referral of this resolution back to the comwould live up to their verbal proposal. mittee”. spoken on any resolutions. “The secretary-treasurer”.

It was during the tuesday session that the question of organizing came to _ the floor. -From an original resolution calling on the CLC to fight for ‘.farmer-labor unity by immediately asking for a meeting with farm organizations to discuss joint action on matters of mutual concern’, the CLC executive concocted a diluted motion to read that the convention ‘call upon all union organizations to strive to increase opportunities for joint discussion and activity between farmers and *workers in as many fields of common interest as possible’. Later the same day several other resolutions were presented to‘the fldor. They called upon the CLC to initiate a solid campaign to organize all unorganized workers with the help of all unions in order to cut through jurisdictional red tape. Others thought that the prime objective of the 70’s was to organize the unorganized and hence called upon the CLC to take immediate corrective measures to - reduce conflicting jurisdictions that prevented such organizing. But the CLC took all such resolutions and lumped them together under a substitute resolution which called upon the congress to simply ‘urge all affiliates to develop a new and imaginative program& me to organize the unorganized’. Once again the CLC executive managed to take the guts out of a resolution. But this time they did not get away with it. Several delegates blasted the executive for unwillingness to provide leadership in such important matters. Some said that certain unions sit on their jurisdictions and do nothing to organize the unorganized. Other delegates pointed out that there are several classifications of workers who cannot be organ&d by any particular union and therefore called upon the CLC to appoint organizers in these fields. There was little or no support from the floor for the executive’s recommendation, and the resolution was referred back to committee with a directive to come up

“Mr. chairman, I would like to point out to our brother delegate and to the rest of the convention that the congress has been traditionally in favor of a free trade policy for Canada. We must consider the whole of the Canadian economy as well as the world’s economic situation when making decisions of this calibre. If we don’t we can be easily mislead by a one-sided approach. The Canadian economy cannot effectively exist except under a free trade agreement with other nations. The import and export market is one of the major contributors to the Canadian economy. “It is axiomatic to expect other nations to raise their trade barriers if we raise ours and this will hurt the Canadian economy. Therefore I would like to caution this convention of a one-sided approach to such an important question.” Chairman: ” Delgate on mike six”. Delegate: “Mr. Chairman I move referral”. Crowd: “Seconded”. At this point MacDonald mumbled indistinguishably to himself, and called for another delegate to speak. Delegate; “Mr. chairman I rise in favor of the committee’s recommendation. As the previous speaker pointed out, it is useless for us to talk without knowing what we are talking about. The committee has spent a lot of time researching into this important issue. They have come with. the most appropriate recommendation since they are trained and must have better experience in the field than any of US. I would therefore call upon this convention to give its support to the committee’s recommendation. ” MacDonald called for a vote on the resolution. It was passed with a clear majority. * * * Secretary-Treasurer:

with a working resolution that would put the CLC into action. A similar referral occurred with a moj tion to “expose the collusion of business and government in creating unemployment and intensify its campaign for full employment in Canada”. . These were probably only moral victories for more progressve elements, for despite the fact that many’ people had many good proposals to put forward, the basic structure of the CLC still makes it virtually impossible for anyone to da something during the congress unless the executive gives its consent. All the rank and file workers could do was to refer questions back, to committee. They could not make effective amendments simply because it is against CLC convention procedures to do so. * * * The Edmonton convention revealed many aspects of the Canadian labour move, ment. Many of the rank and file people at the convention recognized that collective bargaining alone was not the answer to labor’s problems, and that the proposed solution to this problem-closer ties with the NDP-was not enough. The reform caucus, for instance, wanted the question of industrial democracy and workers’ ’ control of production scru’ tinized more closely. One person stood up and blasted the executive, saying until the relationship between labor and monopoly capital were studied, the labor movement would not get very far. Many more people spoke against the federal and provincial governments for “anti-labor” legislation. And still more people blasted MacDonald for red-baiting tactics (see Chevron story, May 29). Yet despite this dissent, the leadership remains mostly unchanged. There is still the need for rank and file control of the CLC and for a leadership which has a far greater interest in the demands of the majority of workers. One of the ways this might happen is for the convention floor to organize itself and seize control of upcoming union gatherings and of the 1972 CLC convention. But this kind of organization takes time to develop because it must be conducted from without the CLC. The basic criteria for this kind of organization is a simple understanding of the workers’ -power both within and without the CLC and a simple knowledge of what the rank and file worker can do if he persists in his actions. Such information is available, it is simply a matter of communication. The university, through its research can provide much of this kind of information to the different union locals. As a community resource, the university should make itself useful in such matters pertaining to groups like labor organizations, or for that matter any other community groups at the local and national level. I This kind of activity would bring the university much closer to the tax payers who are paying most education costs. It would make academic study much more meaningful because it .would involve people in the day-today activities of the community.

Thus, we must remember that the conquest of the new world was carried out by the mercantilist sectors of the metropolis. They sought markets for commerce, Consequently, the methods of production that were established corresponded to the need for greater exploitation of the Americas. Gold was the prime mover of colonization. It is also true that capitalism will not introduce machinery where direct exploitation of workers is more advantageous. As far as agriculture is concerned, the capitalist utilizes those forms which allow the greatest exploitation with a minimum of investment. It has been pointed out, for example, that even tribal structures wer&e integrated as elements of subjection and exploitation during the. imperialist colonization of Africa in the 1880’s. As a more recent example, Cuba and Brazil have witnessed the creation of latifundia in the twentieth century by means of direct foreign investments. In agriculture, these investments utilize archaic or modern forms of exploitation whenever necessary. Of course, no one will claim that feudalism is being created ’ by imperialism wherever imperialist investment has developed an extensive and latifundist agriculture. Such a statement would be historically false. In fact

This is the way the famous thesis of the historic mission of the national bourgeoisie to achieve capitalist development is explained. The majority of Latin America’s com,-munist parties have sought out the national bourgeoisie. The strategy’ that they have often followed and * not abandoned, has always led to failure and the deception of the people. These repeated failures are not due to the good or bad intentions of individuals or social groups.

They occur for a very simple reason: a task that does not exist cannot be carried Out. Capitalist development cannot be achieved in those places where capitalism already exists, albeit in an nderdeveloped 5 form. Let us understand it clearly, underdevelopment is the capitalist form of exis-’ tence in the underdeveloped countries.

The dichotomy development-underdevelopment is the expression of a single process: the process of the development of capitalism. This system must be correctly analyzed as a global structure of exploitation of social classes and groups organized internationally and nationally at different levels and among which exploitive relations are apparent. There exists in every structure-a dominant element which articulates and organizes the other elements withinit. This can be simply expressed as the profit motive. The operation of capitalism is shaped by ‘it and, consequently, the mechanism of, exploitation is what produces the separation and distinction between the developed and the underdeveloped areas.

The mechanism of capitalism operates so that once a region advances along that path it begins to integrate others as well, but in a subordinate fashion. The economic surplus generated in the underdeveloped areas benefits the growth and development of the capitalist areas. When stated abstractly, this seems to be an empty generalization. However, a probing examination of the history of coloniza; tion provides proof of the transfer of wealth from the colonies to the metropolis. His-

torical analysis is not the only way to prove the point. Scientific examination of the present relations between the developed and the underdeveloped nations indicated that this tendency continues to operate. It does so where unfair exchange, foreign investment and monopoly capital constitute the instruments and mechanisms by which imperialism appropriates to itself the economic surplus generated in the underdeveloped areas. Con&quently, the development of capitalism in some countries has meant the generation of underdevelopment for others. Nevertheless, the idea that it is possible to make the transition from underdevelopment to development within the capitalist framework is widely shared. It is echoed at many international conferences and many leftist parties use it as the theoretical justification for the aid that the socialist countries provide to the Latin American oligarchies. To refer today to countries on the road to development is to mystify reality and to confuse the possibilities of economic growth with development. The latter can only occur by breaking the chain of underdevelopment. a This becomes possible only by breaking with the capitalist system. There is’no other alternative. The choices are clear: capitalist underdevelopment or socialist revolution. -_ Adapted from Telos, official publication of the graduate philosophy department, the state university of New York ‘at Buffalo.

Lots of people up on the hill, outside, not paying the $4.50 ($5.56 at the door) prices-. When requested, right after Butterfield’s set, to let the free people on the hill in, the “hip” mc laid the whole money scene down for all to see. _ “This all costs money. They do not want to pay. They want to rip youoff. / do my trips and nobody horns in on my trips.” And on and on. The crowd quieted down. He read from Rolling stone, and the, next act came on. The practical points are almost irrelevant. There really was room for more people, people who weren’t going to pay anyway (the bands weren’t all that great), and they would’ve bought the promotor’s apples and oranges and hamburgers. But more importantly, this was a gathering of a nation, Woodstock Nation, and it’s our music, and those were our brothers and sisters, and most of us wouldn’t really have given a shit if we had been “ripped off”. So the cops continued to wander around, the freeks continued to listen to the music, and the people on the hill went -home.

‘The primary goal of -engineering education is to prepare the student, ideblogically, for constructive particifiation f -e inf the competitive, profit-,motivated economy.’ * /

by Ken Clowes

“Look around you. All you see was made by either god or an. engineer. ”

T

HE STATEMENT ABOVE was used last year at McGill as the theme of an address to a group of freshman engineers-brand new inputs to the McGill Assembly Line at Engineering freshman reception week. _ During most ,of the week the freshmen had learned about “demolishing forty beers” and so, in this atmosphere, the speech was looked on only as another glorification of the engineer; the freshmen thought about the speech about as much as they’ contemplated “flush that fartsman down the drain”. Unfortunately, what was said was not meant simply as a narcissistic glorification of the engineer but i-s frighteningly true (or perhaps only half true but more frightening if you’re an atheist. ) The freshmen quickly forgot the speech anyway (which is understandable considering the carnival atmosphere in which the dean chose to make his remark) but what is unforgivable is that the speaker and the faculty of engineering totally ignored and still do the social fact that engineers do create most of the things in this society. In fact, nowhere in the engineering program is any effort taken to make the engineer aware of the whole scope of his work and its direct effects on the human environment. The question relating to the “social :relevance of engineering” have been dis-i cussed at great length in the past and there is little point in rehashing familiar points. Most people are aware that technology has a’ great effect on society but there ‘is‘ disagreement as to how far this abstract engineering affects society” idea directly concerns the engineer. As L.A. Woods, director of US air force office of space research, puts it: “Now why is the water pollution problem and the lack of interest in it regarded as an engineer’s problem? Isn’t it a social problem?. . more a matter of social-political activity” This ‘jargument” seems to be based on the somewhat obscure deduction that social a^nd political problems necessarily, have no direct or particular interest to the engineer. Many people seem to believe that although a problem <may be caused by technology, the people responsible for its recognition and solution are the politician or the “they” directly connected /

with the political system. The engineer’s role is simply that of the proverbial “good citizen” or, at most, that of an advisor to a politician (but the politician makes the first move to seek advice and to define its extent). ‘The idea that an engineer has no special responsibility for the socio-political decisions involved in technological changes ignores the fact that the engineer has a unique understanding of technology. , In fact, the converse is true - the engineer is in potentially the best position to predict the social implications of any given technological change. The engineer is of necessity involved at the first stages in the development of any technological “advance’ ’ . He can be involved in a project whose very existence may only be known to a few people and which may have farreaching consequences which only he can realize. So, it is the engineer’s respdnsibility to consider, from the outset any social consequences of his work. For example, twenty years ago there was very little public interest or work done on the problems of pollution. At that time, the engineer was in a position to realize the consequences of the pollution caused by industry but, as he had not been educated to even think about such things, the public was not aware of the problem and nothing was done to alleviate it. Because of this inaction, we are faced today with a crisis situation in pollution. It has become increasingly obvious that a change in attitude and orientation towards the “humanities and social sciences” is required on the part of the engineering profession in general, and engineering educators in particular. Indeed it is the large role that technology plays and has played in the development of our present society which primarily has necessitated this change. Yet the attitude of engineering educators, in general, has not caught up with the changes which have been wrought by their own profession. They regard the “humanities and social sciences” as a means by which the engineer may broaden his mind and develop interests “outside’-’ the profession. They also feel that any understanding of the social and political implications of the engineer’s work (if at all necessary) will be gained by the engineer through study on his own. As well, the meaning implied by the term “humanities and social sciences” is interpreted almost from a purely “classical” (aristocratic) point of view. R.S. Woodbury, professor of his,tory of technology at MIT, once wrote: “The study of the MIT courses in history and philosophy of science or of the history,of

ucation, 1968. This article was originally published in the McGill Daily, McGill university, Montreal. -

engigeering and economic history will not alone make our students educated scientists and engineers. They need also to be offered literature, music, fine arts, political and social history, ethics, even metap hysics ! ’ ’ While no one would deny that the study of the classical’humanities adds to a person’s educatidn, it is certainly another question altogether whether such study has any true relevance in producing a more- competent engineer. indeed, there is a general misconception that all that is t -required to l civi&‘ze” the engineer is to have him attend a fqw introductory c&uses given by the liberal arts faculty. Of course this

strategy has not been successful, basically because the liberal arts courses themselves have not adapted to the implications of technology in our present society and its effect on the human condition. So, from a practical viewpoint, these courses are, irrelevant to the engineer. As well, it is unfortunate that in general engineering faculties have not realized the fallacy of the liberal arts approach to the social part of engineering education, or having realized the” fallacy, have not -al- $ tered the curricula in a meaningful manner. ~ A new‘approach towards social studies

& Mike Novak

must be taken by engineering educators. This approach must be based upon the realization that the rapid growth of technology and its effects on our present society has forced a merging of the once-distinct and antithetical areas-the humanities and the applied sciences. The social scientists can no longer view society and the human condition without taking into account the dominating role played by technology and the technologist in the world today. Similarly, the engineer can no longer function in our society without analyzing the social and political implications of his work. Lynn White Jr., professor of history at UCLA, writes “The basic professional fact is that the individual engineer today is increasingly threatened with technical ’ obsolescence in proportion as he is not also a humanist”. Just as a graduating engineer who could not manipulate a slide-rule or-program a i computer’ would be considered inade-‘ quately trained, so an engineer who has not consideed his role in society or its effeet on-that society mustbe considered unprepared for his future work: The role of the engineer is expanding to such a large &ent that engineering educators *can no longer realistically ignore the -changing situation. ~

, ALL THAT was futile. I did not exist to write poems, to preach or to paint; neither I nor anyone else. All of that was incidental. Each man had only one genuine vocationto find the way to himself. He might end up as poet or madman, that was not his affair, ultimately it was of no concern. as prophet or criminalHis taskewas to- discover his own destiny-not an arbitrary one-and live it out, wholly and resolutely within himself. {Everything. else was only a would-be existence, an attempt at evasion,. a flight back to the ideals of the masses, con_ formity and fear of one’s own inwardness. The new vision rose up before me, glimpsed a hundred times, possibly even expressed before but now experienced for the first time-by me. I was an experiment on the part of nature, a gamble within the unknown perhaps for a new purpose, perhaps for nothing, and my ’ only task was to allow this game on the part of primeval depths to take its course, to feel its will within me and make it wholly mine. That or nothing! I
