“HELP”

In a rambling, often voluble four-hour meeting last monday night, the campus’ center board approved broad steps toward complete reorganiza tion and possible .wide policy changes. The board was responding. to the forced intentions of the federation of students which last week replaced all ninestudent members. Among measures adopted was one which overturned the previous board’s decision that Modern cleaners be awarded a cleaning contract. Explaining his motion, new board member and former president of the Canadian union of students, ’ Peter Warrian, stated the motion should be passed be&se Modern does not employ union labor. (A sub-committee formed’ to investigate the ramifications of cancelling the contract-already signed by the university-has since heard university officials promise to revise their .own j,anitorial department bid for the cleaning contract. Its original bid of $35,OQO was higher than ‘Modern’s and apparently based on estimates which deliberately did not meet the university’s “normal standards of cleanliness”. did not say why. Spokesmen Modern cleans six other buildings on campus and pays an average

ion should be ready before christmas. Possession ‘of any drug, the report proposes, should be subject to a maximum fine of 100 dollars. ‘Further, it asks that offenders should not be jailed for non-payment of fines but should be subject to civil proceedings for nonpayment. Trafficking marijuana, were the report accepted, would be punishable to a maximum of 18 months, rather than the life imprisonment maximums now POSsible. The commission ‘also blames police for exaggerating the dangers involved in using marijuana and hashish, and contributing to hysterical attitudes against the drugs. It also asserts that it was unable to unearth the “document-s ed” evidence cited by the RCMP in support of its contention that use of marijuana leads to str‘onger drugs such as heroin, or to crimin: al activity. j Police were also criticized for their use of entrapment and violence to obtain evidence. RCMP plainclothesmen, the report states, have asked young people to obtain drugs for them, and later charged the youths withtrafficking. -PC. Leader ~Robert Stanfield has already indicated support of the recommendations, while many Liberal cabinet ministers are opposed.

of $1,500 less per man yearly than the unionized university labor force.,) ’ Increased turnkey participation in pglicy-making was made official by giving turnkeys equal representation with/board members on re-organizedstaff (hiring and firing ) , operations and_ program committees. (There has been much criticism of federation president Larry Burko’s action ’ in replacing student reps from ousted &urnkey-board members who felt, their program policies to encourage more student use of the building were identical to Burko?s proposals for regular speakers’ tours, movies and dances, and would have eventually been implemented. A major point of contention here was that some board members claimed . they had approached the federation board of student activities for money to run programs but that the federation had either claimed such money had to come from the administration or had : ignored,the requests. Burko denied the charge. As it was, most activities other than standard services were BSA-sponsored. The center’s own program budget ..was.$3,000. ) Considerable discussion center-> ed on new board members’ attempt to change the title and status of the center “manager” to that of “secretary”. According to some members, the concentration of power and resporrsibility in the hands of one person-either by design or by necessity-has been a major factor in what new board members felt was a growing lack of democracy in decision-making and increasing level of bureaucracy in day-to-day center activities. The revised staff committee was requested to clarify a job description and status for the post. (The present salary of the cemter‘s “manager-secretary” is $6,084 and is contingent upon final job description recommendations by the board. Personnel offici&ls stated that if “manager” status was advised, an - upper-middle category 10 or 11 salary-about $8,300-would be appropriate. New board members have complained the previous board was about to change the job de.scription in order to give present “manager” Carol Tuchlinsky a large raise. Other members cautioned that changing the description solely to keep the salary down was just as unadvisable. 1 The most interesting part of the meeting occurred/ when history alumnus Larry Caesar, observing the meeting, claimed what had split students concerned with the board was pressure from the “big boys upstairs” who had used alleged dope smokingon the premises to threaten closing the building. He claimed Burko’s move was “good theater“ because it would “get students back together to work against the real enemiesthe people with the goddamn power.”

On june 18, Howiepetch, president protem approved a grant of $1200 to Andy Tamas of Integrated Studies to make a film about the The trouble-plagued department. film will be used to help promote the department to prospective students, as well as explain what the new program is all about, from the students point of view. Tamas ‘said he conceived the idea for the film because of the difficulties the students have been having with administration.. “In our meetings with the inter-faculty council, we find that we cannot present our ideas in a coherent manner because we are constantly cut off after a few phrases. Through the film, we hope to force them to sit down for fifteen minutes and listen to what we ,have to r say.” Several students have expressed frustration with the interfaculty council, the senate committee responsible for the unit, because the- council has refused to make decisions on many student proposals. The council has reserved judgement on new resource people

for the unit, a budget for next year which was drawn up by the students, and admitting new students for the fall. During meetings between the council and the students, an admissions criteria committee* was established, consisting of two stu,dents, two faculty and the registrar. Stan Johansson, history and Ken Woolner, physics, were appointed faculty reps, and Tamas and Ross Bell are the students on the committee. The committee met on june 16 and the students said they would begin interviewing applicants on june 22. The interviewing committee is formed from a pool of I.S. students who are available for the summer. There are about 250 applicants, with 20-30 spaces available in the ’ unit. The students are trying to negotiate some form of payment for the students doing the interviewing. This was first proposed some time ago, but like many of the students’ proposals, no decision was made by the inter-faculty council.

The student loans committee has completed a first draft of a brief to the provincial government and decided in its monday’s meeting to publish the draft for comment from the student body.

Text Ff the university of Waterloo report can be found on pages 6 & 7. z The brief, prepared by Leo Albert Dejeet and Johnson, George Chapell, is a response to the Ontario report on financial Cook-Stager assistance, the report. Recent recommendations by a subcommittee for the nationwide council of ministers of education, based on the same ideas as in this report, was endorsed by the ministers over the weekend. These reports suggest a restructuring of university student financing similar to U.S. procedures. The proposed educational opportunities bank would mean that students would repay the full costs of their education by a tax surcharge over 15 years. AS the brief was read at monday’s meeting, some questions previously discussed were again asked. Ken Fryer wanted grants restricted to those in good aca-

demic standing. Albert Dejeet pointed out some reasons against such a proposal. “A person suffering from illness or who was in the wrong *course would be penalized under such a system,” he said. The report included the proposition that students of lower classes are being discriminated against, first in high school by their teachers and later in the awards program. Fryer also disagreed with this point. Original abuse of the indepen-dence elause of the awards program has apparently resulted in the present stringent rulings. Leo Johnson wanted to know why there was not more prosecution of offenders if the leans were being misused. Dejeet said that prosecution was almost impossible because the government could not decide whether the c provincial or federal governments should prosecute. The brief went on to discuss present problems with the awards systems and p-ecommen-dations to solve these problems. The brief also criticized the Cook-Stager report as lacking objectivity and the adequate research to support its extreme conclusions. ,

Less than 15 of the 87 students charged are eligible at present. The Sir George board of governors had laid a total of 1044 charges against the students, following the student occupation of the university’s computer centre as a protest against racism in the university. I y Only 50 of the charges have been heard in the 16 months since the arrests, and only nine of these have been upheld. ._. Seventy-five of the accused have not yet been tried.

rising water to a height of twenty-six feet along the stately limestone walls which now measure up to forty feet. And, since sticks, twigs, branches and various other vegetation would clog the all important water gate of the dam, it is necessary for them to clear the section of the gorge that is to be flooded, of all its natural growth. FAMILIAR?

Once again the K-W field naturalists have shown that there are alternative sites for the dam. To simply move the construction down river several miles would solve the problem and save the gorge. But some records never change. The Grand River conservation authority has already spent ten thousand dollars drawing up plans for the dam at the projected site. There is just no way they are going to throw that money down the Elora rapids to blueprint another set of plans. They would, rather wash out the entire gorge than spend another inflationary penny on planning. “Besides,” they argue, “the flooding of the gorge will have benefits of its own. There will be- water for boating, swimming and fishing.” They also claim that the water surface will allow _ people to get closer to the rock cliffs for inspection. It wasn’t added that they would see twenty-six feet less of them or that many persons went to thegorge to examine species of vegetation peculiar to it. On the other hand, the peaceful whining of motor .. boats polluting reservoir water does offer compensations of its own.

’ -

The first threat is a projected highway to the Bruce Penninsula which will span the gorge-at its most scenic spot, the point where the Grand and the Irvine rivers join. This threat, to be realized within the next year or so, came to the attention of a small organization, the Kitchener- Wa terloo field naturalists, several years ago. They have since spent much time and energy to studythe proposal and have come away with an all ternative route for the highway that offers more advantages than does the now proposed highway. By moving it several miles to the east it would not only by-pass Elora, it would also serve Fergus which, in the next several years, will have to con-‘ struct a by-pass itself. AESTHETIC

Progress is saving forty-five minutes driving up to the Bruce Peninsula. Progress is flooding out the lower two-thirds of a natural beauty spot although alternatives are available. Progress means ruthless and wanton despoilation of an oasis of nature. Progress meansthe end of the.Elora Gorge. Or is it progress? Could it be simple selfishness on behalf of those- responsible for the projected steps to be taken that will rob thousands, hundreds of thousands even, of the pure beauty and splendor of this southern Ontario naturalist haven? _ Strangely enough; little has been written or said_ by the local news media about the double pronged threat that is promising to devastate the Elora \ Gorge. BRIDGE

THE

BRIDGE

GORGE

Wellington county, the organization responsible, has not&en impressed with the alternative. 7 The bridge, they claim, is aesthetic and a completed model of it is now on display in Guelph. (Those who have never seen an aesthetic bridge are presumably welcome to view it). Further, they add, the view of the gorge’s river fork from the bridge will be nothing short of magnificent. “At sixty miles an hour?” asked one incredulous member, from the K-WField naturalists. Wellington county authorities were unaffected. Perhaps scenic look-outs could be constructed at ‘the ends of the bridge. There was even the suggestion of having restaurants. That way people ,could enjoy the gorge’s true natural beauty while drinking coffee and eating a paper cup full of french c, fries. It would almost seem, then, that Wellington county has every%ing under control. Aesthetic bridge, scenic look-out, just a touch of commercialism, waste baskets and “Pleas@ Do Not Litter” signs. They aren’t worried about the beauty of the spot. Why should area residents be. Everything will be ( just fine. Yessir, just fine.

For those who have not seen the Elora Gorge there may be some confusion as to why anyone “aside from field naturalists and a few residents from Elora and Kitchener” would become excited I about the proposed desecrations. -. However, Wellington county, the Grand River conservation authority, and the Ontario government, who is so kindly footing approximately twothirds of the bills to carry on the proposed butchery, to the contrary, the gorge is a concern of the residents of Ontario, attracting people /from all over the province and even further. It is one of the few spots in southern Ontario still in its original form, as breathtaking today as it was in the mid-seventeenth century when the Jesuit fathers described the wonder and beauty of their discovery in the Relations. The gorge is also an unique geological feature of I southern Ontario, having two rivers meet in solid limestone, second in depth only to the mighty . Niagara gorge. Some of its vegetation is kpwn ;o the area only as it is found in the gorge. Wildlife, in its natural state, still exists although it is being threatened even without flooding. With flooding, more than the now extinct red fox will be lost.

tampering” will’ ruin the last posed “ecological strpnghold of nature in this area. According to the authorities nobody outside’ of Elora is concerned with their assault on the gorge, and, obviously it is above their dignity to respect the wishes of the local residents. Secure in their smugness, they have stated that unless it can be demonstrated that people other than those in Elora are inter.ested, “we will not’ consider changing the proposed plans.” Even people as close as Kitchener, they have indicated, probably do not care.

The field naturalists of Kitchener-Waterloo know otherwise. Wildlife of the gorge has attracted naturalists from across Canada. The obvious answer, then, is to communicate to the authorities that they ,aren’t as isolated in their ivory committee rooms as they would have one believe. For this purpose the K-W field naturalists have asked for help. They are asking for letters of protest against the proposed by-pass and flooding. to be mailed to themselves at: The Conservation Committee , for K-W Field Naturalists, 188 Lester St., Apt. 7B Waterloo, Ontario. Another means of support is to contact the Pollution Probe office (744-61111, ext. 3780 1 and volunteer to-aid with their summer project. This will consist of patrolling the entrance of the gorge to ascertain how many people visit the gorge, where these people come from and getting names B on petitions to save the gorge. ’ Support the gorge by calling us now.

There are only a few rules or common courtesy things to do, mostly about dope. I don’t knowdwhat happens if you blow it--except that you might get yourself and your host busted.

Peace, CHARLOTTE VON BEZOLD India is whipping boy for population growth I have just finished readingyour article on “Defusing the population bomb”. It seems that whenever the subject of population is raised, India for .obvious reasons is the favorite whipping boy. Statements like “India.....resisted attempts to limit their population growth. “India...,is fighting its use (the pill), thru channels both official and unofficial” in contrast to the supposedly progressive attitudes of the western societies, seem to reflect a smug and arrogant attitude -on the part of these countries and glosses over’ a few essential facts. l India is one of the first countries to institute a special ministry

I have had a startling revelation recently. Several of you, no doubt, buy your milk in the three quart plastic jugs. You are also well aware that a‘ forty cent deposit is required on the jugs, too. Well of course you get that ‘back when you buy your next jug. So you really don’t get it back. _i-The milk people keep it. Do you think that the jugs cost jr them forty cents. I don’t. I think that we havelbeen duped into giving the milk people a forty cent investment. Take that forty cents, and multiply it by the number of jugs in circulation, and the dairies have been given an awful lot of capital to get rich with. Much like buying shares in the company. Only in this instance they .don’t have to pay back any dividends and other capitalist stuff. * * * * And while we’re seething with anger at the food industry, jI thought I would tell you that I have applied my mathematical mind to the trading stamp joke being played by Zehr% grocery stores. It takes about one hundred and fifty dollars worth of groceries to get enough stamps to fill one book. One of the “gifts” for filling one book is a rubber mat. This mat retails in several stores f& about one dollar. Employing normal mark-up ratios backwards, it becomes apparent that the mat

for population control (not growth by the way) headed by a demographic expert! Neither United States nor Canada has an official body responsible for population control even today. I fail to see how they are preparing to set “zero pop growth” as their objective.’ ’ ’ ’ 0 Indians have no institutionalized prejudice, religious or otherwise. against the practice of artificial birth control, contrary to popular’ belief in western societies. This stands in sharp contrast to the belief of Catholics who have yet to receive official dispensation from the pope on such practices. ’ l It is true that western countries have a falling birth rate, but this is more a result of industrialization, urban living and greater prosperity than a consequence ,of official attempts. In India, the greater percentage of people are not using artificial birth control, not because they have prejudices against its use, but partly because as a result of a circular argument which has more to do with -economic considerations, than with birth control itself. India has many problems most of which are compounded by population growth, and it certainly needs people who can critically study these problems, and provide solutions. What it does not need is shrill and strident criticism based on misinformation and a smug attitude of superiority. K.

My heavens, they’re generous. I think we could all raise our returns if we saved our stamps for a while, then took them back to the store and glued them to the windows.

The organisers of professional races shouldn’t be castigated for beating their promotional drums to attract a large crowd. Mosport would go out of business in a very short time if it did- not hold one or two big races each year so they could stay financially solvent.

Waterloo’s George Neeland answers the skill testing question that won him a trip to Edinborough, Scotland next month.

wcmrriofs tops at trials Waterloo’s George Neeland sped to victory in the sprint hurdles last weekend. Competing in the british commonwealth games trials in Hamilton, Neeland won the event in 14.2 ‘sec. tying his own Canadian record. This win places George on *the’ Canadian team travelling to Edinborough next month; he will also compete in Italy at the world student games prior to his return on campus this fall. Neeland is a third year arts student atUniwat. A native of Thornhill, Neeland was the Ontario high school champion twice and is the present canadian champion in this event. George’s international experience includes the pan american games in ‘1967’ and the pan pacific games, 1970. Last summer saw our swift Warrior claim the gold medal at the Halifax summer games. The 1972 Olympics will be the peak of Neeland’s career, and within a few years of that Olympiad, George plans to retire as a competitor and ‘go into track coaching. In Neeland’s estimation, there are at least six present Warriors capable of making Canada’s national team within the next year. Last weekend’s meet also- saw

other w,arrior top performances. Graduates Bob Findlay (5000 mt. ) and Andy Boychuck (marathon f also placed on’ the team. Third place in the javelin and fifth in the triple jump went to U. of W.‘s trackmen, Glen Arbeau and Bill Lindley respectively.

lntfcamufuls In the game of the week, Dooner‘s (b-ball) Dunker’s wiped out St. Paul’s 137 - 22. Al Haehn and R. McKewan were top dunkers with 26 and 36 points respectively. Meanwhile, Hoseks Holocosts upset the previously unbeaten Chinese students in a low scoring game. . The ’ men’s volleyball circuit saw the Bagbitters, Czech Students and Kin. 4A turn in victories. To date, the Czech students remain the only unbeaten squad. Uniwat‘s Cricket Club lost a close match to the Waterloo team 154 runs to 135. N. Ansari stroked 54 fine runs for the losers and Maulton Fabien’s pace bowling gained him three wickets for 34 runs. Fabien also shone as a batsman earning 32 runs. Uniwatis next outing will be at Guelph Uni’ versity on June 27.

tion through its examination of the total subsidization of the student by arguing that grants paid directly to the university should be treated ly than grants paid directly to the student.

no different-

Since some 40.2 percent of university students come from the top 10 percent of the economic class (and 62.2 from the upper 28)) one can rightly ask why-subsidies in the range of $2500-$3500 per year (in the form of operation and capital grants) should be paid on behalf of such well-to-do families. Would not such monies perform a much greater social service if directed into other areas?

deficiencies

The Cook-Stager report, however, suffers from a number of severe deficiencies which must cast considerable doubt on its over-all usefulness. In particular are its deficiencies in the crucial discussion on the “barrier effect” of loans to lower economic class students which would seem to render suspect its overall conclusions. A prime example of its lack of objectivity occurs in the section dealing with the possible barrier effect of a totally loan-bases program on students from lower income families. For example; the authors engage in an argument intended to convince the reader that there is a “long term decline in the importance of a financial barrier “. This conclusion is ‘arrived-at by comparing a 1957 study of grade 13 students with a 1965 study of those in grade 12, without taking into account the degree to which grade 12 is composed of students kept in school by attendance laws, non-academic stream students and lower achievers. Secondly to totally discount the 1962 A.S. Mqwar Canadian study which concluded that “lack of money was the chief reason for not continuing,” while accepting a series of studies /from England and the US which conclude that the financial barrier was not “the major obstacle”, seems a decision arbitrary beyond scholarly research.

in

Further, the treatment of the major 1969 study-by Clark leads one to conclude that the credibility of the Cook-Stager study must be seriously questioned.

Income;

not culture,?

The Clark group asserted that “income rather that the cultural aspects of class should be the cent& of attention” (and pointed out that while awareness of the availability of government aid did not change over time, those who made a decision at the grades 12-13 level to go on to university were also those who were most likely to count on government assistance as the primary means of financing their education. Such a correlation suggests that students from lower income families do, in fact, break out of ‘family patterns of educational expectations and that the awareness of government assistance plans may have been, if not the cause of such decisions, at least a means of making such a decision possible. 1 On the other hand, Cook-Stager asserts without doing so that they offering factual reason for emphasis to the would give “a slightly greater cultural aspect.” One is astounded by the assertion that one should “discount the problem of economic barriers raised by the 1957 Fleming study of Ontario Grade 13 students because “only 66% of the uncertain students and 24% of the “definitely riots” would continue if adequate bursary assistance were made available. If anything, the fact that “only two-thirds of uncertain students would go on were financial assistance available,” demonstrates the magnitude of the barrier problem and the crucial importance which one must place upon its existence in asses‘sing the relative merits and effects of various financing methods. Clearly, if Cook-Stager disagree with the conclusions of every. major canadian study while accepting the conclusions’ of british and american studies, much further information is necessary regarding the Canadian situation before the Cook-Stager loanfinancing recommendations can be accepted.

Contingency

centage repayment, the lower. income group finds repayment much more difficult than the upper income group.

Assuming that the repayment rate is l/3 percent per $1000 borrowed, and the true cost per year of undergraduate education is $3500 per year, then an honors B.A. graduate could be expected to borrow $14,000 and repay 4.67% of his gross income per year. Similarly, a PhD graduate might owe as much as $40,000 and repay 13.3% of his gross income.A calculation of the effects of repayment of such sums -on various income-levels points out that although a contingency-repayment program ‘ameliorates, the burden to lower-income alumni, it sti/l levies a more pressing burden on the lower-income alumni than it does on the upper. (While the contingency repayment percentage remains the same at all income levels-say 5% obviously, the man earning $20,000 is much better able to repay $1000 than the man earning $5000 is able to repay $250). Moreover, since it is assumed that no one will be required to repay more than he borrowed, the high-income alumnus is able to repay his debt rather quickly with relatively -small inconvenience, and with a lesser total interest cost, while the lower-income alumnus must suffer greater inconvenience over a much longer period. In such circumstances, equity is not achieved, nor are the students likely to remain unaware of the burdensome effects of even the contingency repayment plan for very long.

Increased

income

One aspect of the results of higher education which Cook-Stager acknowledge, but which they do not fully include in their analysis is the fact that higher education tends to increase the recipient’s income. While Cook-Stager make much of this higher income in their arguments regarding the private benefits deriv,ed from education (and indeed base their whole loan plan on it), they conveniently overlook the fact tha.t the government already receives a return on the additional income due to‘ taxation through the form of increased income tax payrnents. A study of this aspect of repayment of the public investment in a student would have been most informative. One wonders whether a simple surcharge upon taxes on incomes above the $10,000 level would not achieve all the beneficial aspects of the CookStager proposals without incurring all the problems of barrier effects, etc., which are likely to arise in the present proposal. ‘The question of a possible negative doGvry created

by a loan system for female students reveals a major weakness in such plans. Rather than concentrate on the possible failure of married female alumni to repay, the government should concentrate its efforts on raising the standards of pay and increasing the possibility .of employment of females to a position of equality with males-thereby making a salaried career more attractive to married female alumni. The degree to which a shortfall on repayment would exist because married female alumni would absent themselves from employment is a reflection of the discriminatory nature of current employment practices and social pressures, and as such might well be born by the public at large.

We recommend-

r

changes in student assistance plans should be made unless a much more thorough, objective and comprehensive study is ma-de than is available at present. For example, the substantive caveat raised by George Hanford and James Nelson, (Federa/ student loan plans: the dangers are real, College buard review, spring, 1970) suggests that all is not well with american EOB (Education~NO

major

al opportunity bank) schemes. Certainly there are a number of alternatives open (several are suggested in the text) which should be considered before a major change is made. l Investigate the effects of higher rates of income tax returned by alumni, and calculate what additions, if any, would be necessary to repay the public investment diverted to private benefit by the student. a Thoroughly investigate the public-private re-’ turns on education and in particular include a *due recognition of the social benefits of an increasingly educated populace. l Investigate alternate avenues to relieve the “negative dowry”’ element, and consider the element of social responsibility for its existence in such calculations. l Investigate effects of various “floors” below which no contingency rate return would be demanded, and also investigate the possibility of a valuable contingency rate based upon income level (i.e., a person earning $5000 per year might be required to return .l percent per thousand borrowed, while an alumnus earning $10,000 per year might be re-- quired to repay .3 percent per thousand, etc. ) . 0 Thoroughly investigate “barrier effects” of loans upon lower income groups. Certainly one would not like to discover five years from now, as Canadians universities discovered ten years agothat so few graduates were being produced that‘ for- ’ eigners would be required to dominate whole fields of study. l Investigate ways of encorporating academic merit awards into the system in order to encourage excellance. The public benefits obviously more from an excellent scholar than from mediocrity.

Despite the disclaimer that there is “growing doubt” that providing grants to undergraduates has increased enrolment, studies such as Clark’s clearly suggest that indeed, from a financial point of view POSAP may have been too successful. Enrolment among students from families eligible for aid has created (to use Gordon’s phrase) “an explosive situation” regarding POSAP financing. The Cook-Stager recommendations are little more than an attempt to escape that financial crunch in a political1 y acceptable manner without serious regard to acade-mic consequences.

The key phrase which points .out the limitations of the study occurs in the Dohell-Judy introduction (page X) , “given existing taxation structures. , . ”

Patently

absurd

aMoreover, the assertion that theonly likely tradeoff existing is between post-secondary and other forms of education-an assertion that claims students from lower income groups are likely to be aided in advancing to post-secondary education only at the expense- of those already receiving aid there-is patently absurd. Trade-offs, particularly when explained by a thorough educational program, can be made in many areas of the economy, public and private. ’ Finally, the arguments used to justify the with.drawl of public aid.from university students can be applied with equal validity to students in primary and secondary schools-and was the case in the 19th bentury. One only hopes that CORSAP does not mark a return to those discredited theories of 19th century laissez-faire which created the “bad old days” of privately financed education-education for the classes, not the masses (after all, students and parents could borrow to finance education even in those days)-and against which leaders such as Egerton Ryerson struggled in order to create a modern, literate society in Ontario. ’

White blotter?\ The last ‘couple of weeks “ white blotter” or “white acid” has hit town and sent several kids on bum trips. An hour or so after taking the “acid” they started to have tremors and to shake. About the same time they started to get visual effects like an a&d trip. The shaking freaked out the two kids the Rap Room has seen over the last 7 days.’ The reason is that they took Sernyl (otherwise called PCP) not LSD. Sernyl is an hallucinogen, but it also works on the extrapyramidal system of the brain and produces the Parkinsonian type of tremor that freaked the kids. If you are a blotter user, be prepared to shake. Valium is con sidered by- the Queen Street Mental Health Centre an effective abortor of the trip. 8

Take about twelve big-name stars, a lot of money, and a bestselling book, and you get a terrible movie. The movie I am referring to is Airport, taken from the trashy novel of the same name the shamedly Canadian \ bY “author” Arthur Hailey. There are not enough adjectives or superlatives in the english language to use in, order to describe the colossal piece of tripe that this movie is. The story is that of (what else) an airport and the personal tragedies of several people who either work there or use the facilities. There are so many subplots it would be ridiculousto enumerate them, suffice to say that they all come to a head in the last part of the film ,when a prane (probably turning in the best performance of the whole show) must make an emergency landing on a snow-blocked runway. It is during those tense minutes that we wait expectantly to see if the little old lady stowaway will band together with the kind and pregnant stewardess girlfriend of the flight captain who is already married, in order to save the rest of the passengers from the bombcarrying maniac sitting beside

her whose wife is wandering athe dialogue was pure Hollywood. round the airport looking for her If it hadn’t been played so husband with the help of the,air’ straight, it might have been funlines passenger relations woman ny but because it was so deadly who is the part-time girlfriend earnest it was boring.

In And Out the Garbage Pail is the story of one man’s garbage pail. Many things were dumped into Fritz Perls’ pail-of life, uniting and mixing together to become the man, Frederick S. Perls. Perls experimented with many things during his life, seekingthe final attainment of awareness. Many say he gained this awareness before his ‘\ death this year.

Gestalt is a german word with no direct english translation. In a few words, one might see it as the completion of a unit of life. Most people suffer anxieties, these being caused by the incompletion of a certain desire, want or need. On the completion of the gestalt, or the loss of the anxiety, the person can move on to the next phase of life.

GARBAGE

As a disciple of Freud, he saw many fallacies in the psychoanalytic method, and after becoming a psychiatrist in Germany; he still was not satisfied. The second world war forced-him to leave-his home; going to South Africa, then the United States, then Canada.‘ 9\ .>\ > His life in the United States was a very busy one-& practised in New York for some years and gained a very good reputation. But his years of experimentation were not ended, even though he had passed through middle-age. In California he founded his home--Esalen Institute on the Big Sur. Here he formalized the psychology movement which is taking over where Freud left off--gestalt psychology. -

Neighborhood organizations which would organically interact with one another could actualize or fulfil1 their own needs within a broader community structure if the power base from which they operate is viable and not a reflection of a token or condescending relationship taken, for example, by the city of Toronto toward the residents of Treffan Court. Housing ‘experiments prove- that people, when left to organize affairs on their own can-if resources are available to them-do so with remarkable cooperation and thoroughness; or, they can degenerate into divisiveness if hampered by an external body in whose political interest it may be to keep the community forum from being a success. It must be recognized that effective neighborhood forums or community governments undoubtedly reach the stage of socialist-based philosophy if their interaction is to be meaningful. so far, of course, this has only been possible in communities constructed especially for underprivileged familes or in dwelling plans offered to residents on a proportion of income basis-precisely the people who do not benefit as members of the middle-class effluvium represented by the metropolitan Toronto council or the board of control. . A successful socialist experiment in community organization can be a pain to such politicians when other underdeveloped areas attempt to institute their own community action programs to gain both power and better living conditions for themselves.

The psychological fact to be extracted from this paradigm is that (a) the greater the feeling of efforts being “worthwhile” (in other words, the greater the power resource for fulfilling‘ activity) the greater and more successful is each individual’s interaction with others in the local group, and (b) the entire, over-all, success of local interaction depends on the nature of “trust”.

it is evident that trust becomes manifest among people in a more meaningful and ‘permanent way when control over situations is in turn, manifested in the people (par-

ticipants) themselves., Even participation in only two national “unstructured” seminars (one on anxiety, the other dealing with the nature of the university) has demonstrated this to me. As for a “higher form of communism”. . . the implication here is that such a thing means community in which “trust” constitutes the cohesive bond of responsibility, unlike’other “communal” forms which, it seems to me, replaces “trust” with “authority”. If this paradigm is accepted as a viable plan for proggressive development of local, neighborhood self-government, it must be acknowledged as being vulnerable from all angles to a traditional and hostile status-quo social pattern. For “trust” has limited meaning in a society which has barely learned to accept, let along cope creatively with human openness and cultivation of honest, not artificial, interpersonal relationships. And present governing structures, by their very-defin-

munal concernon the middle class as well when neighborhoods take on a “module” construction and appearance, built for verbal and physical interaction and not for maintaining isolation and protecting private property. Contradictions occur not in trying to suggest that neighborhood power strengthens city-wide cohesion, communication and cooperation, but in suggestingsuch a neighborhood plan be adopted in an environment which cannot handle it: a grid pattern city which ignores natural cultural living patterns-in favor of a private lot and two car garage, and which depends on a basically unequal. capitalist economic system for expansion is not the place to expect socialist interaction to thrive without extensive years of physical redesign accompanied by the similarly liberated socialization of people. These sociological and political aspects of neighborhood political control can be linked in a psychological paradigm that I expect would look something like the one below.

ition could not give up “power” without contingencies c rooted deeply in mistrust. Consequently, development of new individual participatim would revert to the same defensive, inward-turning type of docility which also, by definition, dooms pro’ gressive experimentation to failure. , * * * It seems then, that to remove the real local control issue from the sphere of being merely an intellectual game, a change is required first, in the social and economit outlook of our society, otherwise inherent contradictions between community and private concern will doom any imaginative experiments to stagnation.

not even knowing that she knew or was aware of nothing7 but those feelings. How pure. She always knew that she knew nothing and everything, but she was never obliviou”s to it and always wanted to be. . He had loved her. loved her with every ounce of his soul and he cried now. . tears of happiness. She had achieved herself. He loved to, hear her laugh and scream and watched her often running naked down the hallway, screaming because it wasn’t long enough for her to get totally involved in the movements of her body, both practiced and nafural. She had been a fine partner at all times. a bitch, a mongrel, an /angel, a saint and a loner. She ,had claimed to him that her dedication to his person was total, but he knew that’that was only true insofar as h-e was a tool of her passion. one she cared for and shared with, if only to be fed again by his actions and responses. And he loved her for her selfishness. Their relationship has been total from the beginning. and it was total in the end. He would miss her, yes, but he knew his time would come too. He would someday find a saint who would allow him to scream the insanity passages from Lear while they made love. He had not seen the child, and would never see it. He knew he could not possibly care for it ‘alone. He would put the house up for sale as soon as possible and find an apartment and go back to his life. He went towards-his bed, and just before settling himself, cried out, his mouth forming an enormous, uncontrolled, wild eyed smile. “Good lord god almighty, I- love you ---------!” And then he died. 1

auto,

too late for drunks. The doctor had gone hours ago, and so had the I last of the friends who stare at you on such an occasion. They didn’t

c

feel he should touch booze, but did decide that coffee was just the thing for him. How many cups can one man drink? He had laced each cup with whisky when they weren’t looking, and got so wrapped up in his little game%?nd secret that he began to giggle occasionally. He would catch himself, curse the effect of the booze, but take another slug for it did taste good. The doctor had been gentle, very quiet. What else,could he do? Good Lord, the man was half asleep when he came to the house and obviously wasn’t going to try to console anyone. Besides, hypocrisy creeps into the words of those who console when the mourner shows no signs of response to the, “I’m sorry” of a stranger. How the hell do you respond anyway? “Thank you.” “SO am I.“ “That’s nice.” He had ,known she would die in childbirth, for her pregnancy had been her joy, and her one true ecstasy in life came at the moment of birth. It was what she had always wanted. Her exuberance at conception had been partially due to her hopes for that moment three fourths of a year later.

1 .

Her heart had just stopped! No internal problems. She just ceased to live. Her soul must truly have been in confl’ict at that last moment. He chuckled. He could just,hear the argument rage inside her. . . “Either the child or the ecstasy, but not both.” He knew the dispute added to her utopia. Was she in pain? Probably. But he knew ‘that didn’t make any ‘difference to her. Total emotion, total feeling, total sensory awareness. .
