A TELOS symposium is scheduled for October 8-11 at the University of Waterloo. The TELOS International Symposium on “The New Marxism” seeks to bring together precisely the new breed of young scholars engaged in the re-thinking of Marxist theory and the development of a concrete political program. The last few years have seen a tremendous growth in interest in Marxism. Straitjacketed in fixed categories and committed to dubious political programs, the old Marxism has turned out to be largly irrelevant and has, in the long run, functioned more as an idoelogy than as truly rational approach to social reality. The recent reconstruction in Marxist scholarship seems to offer a remedy for this unfortunate state of affairs; it appears that Marxism is once again beginning to bite into the future.

One of the most bankrupt areas of Old Left scholarship has been that of epistomology or the For a theory of knowledge. reasons, number of complex Marxists have tended to accept Lenin’s materialism and Empirio-criticism as the groundwork for their epistemology. This is indeed unfortunate. Lenin, in this book, did not bother to critically examine Marxist philosophy as a whole. Rather, he simply took what passed for Marxist philosophy in both the orthodox and reformist wings of the Second International and mechanically applied it to show its divergence from the Machist positivism espoused by lunatics such as Bogdanov and his followers. In brief, it is quite clear that Materialism and Empirio-criticism was mainly a party polemic directed against Bog-
danov and in no sense constitutes a rigorous epistemology. After the “capitulation” of the Second International in 1914, Lenin clearly realized that there was something intrinsically with the philosophical wrong foundations of Marxism as conceived at the time. To remedy this, Lenin began, in his Philosophical Notebooks, a systematic study of the Hegelian foundations of Marxist thought. This will be the topic of Raya Dunayevskaya’s paper “Hegelian Leninism”. Miss Dunayevskaya was one of Trotsky’s secretares and is author of the important Marxism and Freedom.
The epistemological problem is also at the center of a new and important movement of thought called “phenomenological Marxism.” Phenomenological Marxists take as their point of departure the radical methodology of Ed,,mund Husserl, especially that of his last work, The Crisis of European cendental
Sciences and Phenomenology.
The dialectic One of the main problems with previous Marxist thought has been that the dialectic is treated independently of any reference to human praxis and is thus made into an abstract, speculative theory which overlooks or destroys that which does not fit into its truncated categories. Phenomenology, in turning to the “things themselves”, clearly points out the bankruptcy of any Marxist theory of knowledge which would separate the dialectic from its ground in human praxis. Phenomenology, as its Marxist adherents see it, affords the only methodology adequate to the “perpetual rediscovery” of the dialectic in human social activity. This will be the topic of Paul Piccone’s paper. Piccone is the
editor of the international philosophy journal, TELOS. The so-called “structuralist Marxists” attempt to put Marxism on a sound epistemological footing by emphasizing what they see as the “scientific” aspects of Marxism. As the structuralists see it, the early works of Marx are simply the product of a certain Hegelian obscurantism which can only occlude the later “scientific works” (e.g., Capital). Structuralist Marxims has a fairly large following in France and making some headway in Canada.
Topics to be discussed Many of the people who will be giving papers at the TELOS Symposium have serious misgivings about structuralism, feeling it is a theoretical position which threatens to plunge Marxism into shallow philosophical swamps that even the most muddle-headed positivists crawled out of thirty years ago! Thus many interesting debates should take place. Two leading structuralists will be participating in the conference : Robin Blackburn, an English sociologist and editor of “New Left Review” and Lucia Colletti, an Italian philosopher and author of Ideologia e Societa and Hegel e il Marxismo. The leading French existentialist thinkers, Maurice MerleauPonty and Jean-Paul Sartre, have both made major contributions to Marxist scholarship. The central concern of “existentialist Marxism” seems to be that of’ the role of the individual in history, a complex topic unfortunately under-emphasized in, traditional Marxist literature. The topic of existentialist Marxism will be dealt with by several speakers, the most well-
known being Andre Gorz, author of The Traitor (with an important preface by Sartre) and Strategy for Labor, a book which Herbert Marcuse considers to be “one of the most important contributions to the analysis of contemporary industrial society.” Many New Left intellectuals are beginning to re-examine traditional Marxist claims in the light of the.works of the brilliamt Marxist “heretics” of the 1920s George Lukas and Karl Korsch. The works of these men will be discussed by Paul Breines, editor of “Radical America” and author of Critical Interruptions. Papers will also be given by the following scholars: Albrecht Wellmer, professor at the Frankfurt Institut fur Sozialforschung and author of Kritische Gesellschaftstheorie
Howard Parson, who will deal with the Marxist-Christian dialogue; Alexander Delfini, who will present a paper on the influence of the thought of the German existentialist, Martin Heidegger, on that of Marcuse. Michael Kosok, a philosopher and physicist, will speak about science and dialectics. David Gross will outline the utopian Marxism of Ernst Bloch. James Hansen will contribute a paper on the new-Kantian Marxism of the Second International. Silvia Federici will examine Antonio Gramsci’s -Marxism and Russell Jacobi that of Rosa Luxemburg. The TELOS Sumposium is the first conference of this sort and promises to be quite interesting and important. Those who will no.t be able to attend will be pleased to know that the proceedings of the conference will soon appear in book form.

Since those present had better ‘knowledge of buying. dry goods, it wasgenerally agreed to proteed in that direction while investigating the purchase of other items.’ In the future, purchases could be . expanded to include healh foods such as raw sugar and wholezwheat flour.

Survival day forthcoming Anti-pollution groups across Canada are planning a survival day for October 14. During the day the groups will try to have city councils close a downtown street for a breath of fresh air, organize outdoor working parties on the banks of polluted waters or hand out armbands with a warning symbol. About 150 groups are being asked to compile dossiers on the specific problems of pollution in their communities and the response they have received from the federal government. The briefs are to be combined in a fat volume and taken to Ottawa. “Survival day exists to bring coherence into the fight against pollution and other environmental abuses,” says an article in Dasein, a tabloid paper published twice monthly in Hamilton at McMaster university. Backing the paper and the plans is a nostrings grant of ten thousand dollars from the youth of the Anglican Church of Canada. The symbol for the day is a Canadian flag shedding a dead maple leaf!
about and were unaware that the meeting was not open to men. The meeting decided to work with the day care group on campus in the resolution of their struggle to find permanent space. An organizational meeting will be held tonight at the reading lounge of the campus centre. A representative of the university day care organization will be present to explain where the group is at. At the thursday meeting, it was suggested that all who wanted to find out more about the concept of day care particularly in overcoming doubts should volunteer an hour or two during the week to work with the children in the campus centre. A women’s lib community meeting will be held in the common room of the Kitchener YWCA 7:30 September 24. ,.

Hark, hark the dogs do bark A lot ‘of our anti noise bylaws were pretty outdated. In Peterborough, for example, a 1937 bylaw prohibited the barking of dogs. The makers of the new bylaw will now have to decide whether to allow barking or to ban dogs. Once dogs were allowed to bark until 11 p.m., but of course, having to keep one eye on the clock took a lot of fun out of barking. . Since Peterborough has ‘become an expert on silencing man’s best friend, maybe a method should be found to handle man himself. For they may soon need a bylaw to ban the yelling and shouting of irate dog owners.
PHILADELPHIA (CUP-CPS) The revolutionary peoples’ constitutional convention, called by the black panther party, recessed last monday until november 4 when it will meet in Washington to reach final agreement on what is intended to be a new constitution for the United States. At the first round, held here over labour day weekend, over 10,000 delegates, more than half of them black, agreed on general principles for a socialistic America, while disagreeing on some particular goals. The convention avoided the open splits which characterized last summer’s united front against fascism conference in Oakland, California, the last attempt by the panthers to unify the radical american left. No vote taken Proposals were made in the form of reports by discussion groups to a plenary session of all attending the convention. No votes were taken, although the favourable reaction to some proposals clearly indicated their popularity with the crowd. Attending the conference were members of groups covering the entire radical spectrum, including s t u d e n t mobilization against the war in Vietnam, youth against war and Fascism, gay liberation front the panthers were the only black group represented, as many other black groups were in Atlanta for the congress of african people where 25,000 delegates discussed the creation of a world african party. Avoided
By concentrating on the kind of society which radicals want after a revolution, the panthers hoped to avoid the friction over which characterized strategy, previous meetings of diverse radical groups. In large measure the tactic succeeded, although Michael Tabor of the new york panthers, issued a broadside. attacking the progressive labor party as “enemies of the people,” for attempting to organize a march on the city hall which the panthers feared would bring the Philadelphia police down on the black community. By tying the new constitution to the old, and by emphasizing the declaration of independence’s guarantee of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the panthers attempted to. make the basically socialist program in keeping with America.
The proposals presented to the plenary sessions by the discussions groups included : Plans to end american imperialism. Discussion groups called for the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces from around the world and for the abolition of the standing army, to be replaced by a system of people’s militias made up of only part-time soldiers. The delegates recognized and accepted that the end of imperialism would necessitiate a lower standard of living for Americans, who now consume over 60 percent of the world’s resources while only constituting 6 percent of the population. Community control of police. The police would be under the control of community - elected boards, which would be able to fire policemen. Non-uniformed police would be prohibited, and the combined budget for police and the military would be less than ten percent of the national budget. Land reform. Control of the land will be vested in the communities, with the entire nation determining a general policy for land use, and the communities handling local problems. Basic rights for all people. Rights to food, shelter, employmerit, medical care, education, birth control, and abortion would be guaranteed. Women’s
.An end to the oppression of women. The discussion groups called for free child care centres, free child delivery, free abortion , and for 50 per cent of all leadship posititons to be held by women. The end of the nuclear family. This proposal provoked considerable disagreement, with one discussion group saying the nu-
under socialism, and the groups on women’s and gay liberation opposed. Huey
The proposals were worked out in discussion groups sunday afternoon after Huey Newton set the tone of the convention with a rousing call for socialism in America. The proposals were presented to a mass meeting sunday night. Delegates met Monday in regional groups to select a continuing committee to work on possible drafts. of the new constitution. The general meetings were held ‘in the’ new multi--million dollar temple university gymnasium, which sits in the middle of the north Philadelphia ghetto. Security was tight, especially for the Newton speech, and commercial press who identified themselves, were excluded. Attendance
Attendance at the convention was apparently swelled by the tactics of Philadelphia police commissioner Frank Rizzo, who raided the three panther headquarters in Philadelphia less than a week before the convention. The police ripped apart the offices in their dawn raids, and then ordered 15 panthers to strip outside. The police held guns pointed at the heads of the panthers. The pictures of the stripped panthers brought more support from the Philadelphia black community than anything the panthers have done so far. Rizzo’s men stayed away from the convention and there were no incidents. As the convention moves to Washington, the major questions are whether the panther’s leadership can continue to unite radical factions, and whether the constitution, once adopted, will prove to be the rallying point
SCULPTURE George Wallace, who is an associate professor of fine arts at McMaster University, has brought together some of the most unique and exciting work to be shown at the University of Waterloo art gallery. . There are eight pieces done by Wallace from 1960 to 1968. Rather than being cast, the pieces are welded, which makes for a very interesting assortment of textures. Along with these; there are four pictures of his work which have been permanently installed at other locations. In order for sculpture to be unique - if this is in fact necessary for the modern artist-he has to create a new tactile environment, a new form, or a new “message.” George Wallace has coupled an old form, the with a highly human figure, original assortment of textures. What really brings his work across, however, is his amazing ability to place a whole set of ever so common human feelings and emotions into a framework which accosts the viewer with disquieting impact. In Wallace’s work the common becomes the to uncommon ; we are forced look - and in looking we see that which we usually overlook. Wallace gives us new eyes.

When one enters the gallery he is immediately presented with the picture of contrast between the bleak walls, the long arc-shaped gallery and the rich, medieval in appearance pieces of sculpture. They are not however, medieval ; they are not even in that tradition. When one begins to view each individual sculpture, he begins to see a vast difference between Wallace’s

works and any sculpture created before them. The Greeks, the first to put life into sculpture, portrayed man as noble. Wallace, however, portrays man as common, but, again, in an uncommon way. ’ In his “Hanging Thief” we find man : not “The Dying Warrior’ ’ ; not a Greek god; but man with empty eyes, hanging from a scaffold. In him we find much of the human condition. He is alive with agony, indifference, confusion and an assortment of other emotions. The emotions we experience are “personified” ; we see them anew. Through him we view ourselves. Throughout Wallace’s work is found a recurring theme of death. In his piece, “Death With Flowers,“, we find a man with his head turned from the viewer, in his hands a bouquet of steel flowers. The coldness of steel and the beauty of flowers, death’s indifference, his empty eyes and visored face - all combine to create complex emotions of fear and peace, beauty and horror. No statement or explanation, however, of death is given. Along with death, Wallace brings in Christian figures; we view them however, in an uncommon fashion. The “De ad Christ” is lying down and we look down on him. We are no longer viewing Christ as the son of God but as a common man. He is not a contorted, agonized man, as we have seen him before, but merely a reclining man, a dead man - not a dead saint. Although Wallace’s figures represent biblical and mythological figures - Lazarus and his winding cloth, Daedalus and his waxy wings, St. John and the Angel, Christ dead and Christ crucified Wallaces’s sculptures still have an anonymous appearance. With hollow eyes, mouths and nostrils, they present not only a universal view of humanity, but also a very personal view: a view of one’s self as a common man. Wallace gives us a very unique, personal experience, the experience of everyman.
Have A Poor Memory?
The Perth County Conspiracy’s George Metejkky (alias Cedric Smith) Richard Keelan) turned on fresh at orientation ‘s phase I1 1 last thursday. standing ovation was “you have the power-with you every how. ’
A noted publisher in Chicago reports there is a simple technique for acquiring a powerful memory which can pay you real dividends in both businass and social advancement and works like magic to give you added poise, necessary self-confidence and greater popularity. According,to this publisher, many people do not realize how much they could influence others simply by remembering accurately everything they see, hear, or read. Whether in business, at social functions or even in casual conversations with new acquaintances, there are ways in which you can dominate each situation by your ability to remember. To acquaint the readers of this paper with the easy-to-follow rules for developing skill in remembering anything you choose to remember, the publishers have printed full details of their self-training method in a new booklet, “Adventures in Memory,” which will be mailed free to anyone who requests it.

PERTH COUNTY CONSPIRACY The Perth County Conspiracy is not just another band; they wander up front with their whole family and have a friendly visit with you. In the same way, Woodstock was not just another rock festival. It’s hard to say just exactly what makes the difference, but you are left with the impression it wasn’t just a put-on, there was something real about them. First of all the casual entrance, wandering to the front amongst two dozen other people who keep hanging around the stage throughout the performance. They are picking at their instruments all the while and gradually a song emerges.
Between songs was not just a time for forced jokes as they retune ‘their instruments, it was part of the whole experience. They begin, “We are the people our parents warned us about,” and don’t just leave it as a joke but continue with that theme throughout the evening. Ah yes, injecting a social comment these days is the way to sell records nowadays, isn’t it? True, but this wasn’t the same. Not the 1984 world of meaningless lyric. They told us they have a record out but advised that we “rip it off.” Their sound was superb, every song thoroughly enjoyable. Most songs had a soft texture to them but one song about uncle Jed was a real cute jingle that the whole audience sang and clapped with, and they did it

AST SUMMER WE KICkED a buncha people off the farm when they were about ready to go to Woodstock. Up till then we had-about 60 people livin there, and a lotta young unmarried chicks. Finally you just can’t make it, and you say leave. And so I’d been liviri on the farm, and I’d been shootin a lotta speed, and I was tryin to fix up the farm to live in, and I’d been workin on it, just really keepin my head workin on the farm, and especially the barn; and I had ii&shed doin’ all the work I could think to do, and so I’d gone in and gone to bed. And I started thinkiri of all the work I was gonnado, you know, how I was gonna wire the place, and how I was gonna put the rug in there, and how I was gonna hang this thing on the ceiling and just runnin through all of this stuff in my head. Theri I’d stop myself arid say, “No, wait a minute, you know better than that, youve done that a thousand times. You run that stuff through your head and you never. do’it, it’s just like indurrin debts. You get these things, these fantasies out there, you get em cranked out’, then you either gotta go and do em like. yog thought about ’ em, or you got to fail at em.” So I started tryin to stop thinkin about it. And, you know, I couldn’t do it. Soon as I’d release it my head’d be right back there and I’d be doin’ stuff out thete atid .puttin$ilt along the edges of the chrome. And so I woke up and Franny and Zooey was-there beside the bed-, I hadn’t read it since seven,years before. I had brought it down as pait of a bunc\h of stuff that I was bringin down because a buncha stuff was comin down at that time with the shootin’ of speed. Before then I was reading in Cold Blood. And I woke up.one morning and there was my raven Basil, he was eatin a baby chick, and Vanilla Fudge was on the radio playin “Season of the Witch,” and it was just like that all day long. And Ithought about that book In’ Cold Blood which there’s., really-there’s no excuse for it; and if that sorta stuff does anything to you that’s what it does, it makes the stuff around you just like the stuff you’re dealing with right there. So, I’d brought a lot of stuff to try to
counteract that, and there’s a buncha _ enough, find Kennedv things we know that we can use like Canor Marilyn Monroe nery Row and Cummings and Salinger, what it is that happen you know, it’s reliable, ‘it just goes in ’ gets caught up here-i there and just clutsit off. _ which j ustblcomeswhl has to do with the fir * . when our attention is ( The Jesus prayer plane to the point that getting our juice.

And, you know, you can just check back through all the people who’ve been doing that action .for a long long time, so, you know, it’s not a thing that’s gonna end out here when we reach this final date, but it’s a thing that comes through since the beginning of it; it’s one big thing that’s goin on...... We’ve ‘got to get it on with the people we’ve been fightin with, which is mainly our folks, that’s who we’ve been fightin with. I was in England last year, I was stavin over there for the solstice and I was d&n’ a buncha stuff-. And my dad died. And man, it came out-it was-it reminded me like a bar of chrome that just came outta the ground and says, “Awright motherfucker, just work around that, because that’s where you really are.” Everything that you really are is around how you feel. Just how you feel about that. Anything else, as/it permutates out from. that feeling gets a little less human. And so, you know, I had to slow down, and come back and-there’s a lotta stuff goin on. IKE, YOU CAN’T get up and talk ecology and put a big buncha people down who’ve been doin a thing which we’re all guilty of the consumption of, you know, we all got the guilt. The clean-up is just gonna be our task .for a long time to come. And I don’t know how to do it, it’s just gonna take years and years of just fussin amongst each other. But if you know that that agreement you can’t hope to reach, you know, that final absolute agreement,’ you’ll always be fussin; but when you see somebody j that’s fussin along the same lines that YOUare, you kinda give him a little edge. Women are terrible because they’re- just comin into a thing that men have been in for some time. It was just like two thousand years ago before women could start thinkin of themselves as makin it spiritually. into the same box that men had reserved. Like Valhalla and all that stuff, it’s keepin the women down, it’s a fascist trip, and it’s finally-all the things have. been ripped off of it to anybody that’s payin any attention. ~ But the women are really faster than
us. Because men have been doing a thing for a long time. Like the Marquess of Queensbury rules, you give and take a certainquarter, a politeness all the time. ‘So somebody who doesn’t do that, .man they can just get in and just fuck your head anywhere! And the women have to kinda understand that, maybe. I’ve been thinkin both ways on that, maybe they just have to go ahead and just do it until it’s all straight. But anyway, with our folks, gettin back to just the small well-known thing that we all know about-it’s hard to do it because there’s this other thing out there and it’s just poundin at you all the time to do something you know, to fulfill, because the media thing starts out and it’s. like you wanna -keep your job, so pretty soon you’re looking for fires. And.pretty soon you’re looking for this and you’re looking -for that until you’re creating a little bit in front of yo.u; the thing here that goes on ‘in America, looking at this for information. The information really doesn’t come from this. It comes from somebody in this position bein’ able to step out of it and having it break apart so that it moves and flows amongst you.

I wanna tell you a story about Hugh\ Romney *(alias Wavy Gravy), because there’s some earth-peoples’-park-people here. This happened abo.ut six years ago. It was in a church that has been reconverted into where this guy was livin. We _--. all went-there to take acid. As the acid started to come’on we read the I Ching, and Hugh begun to cry. And he just cried and cried and cried. And he’d cry and all of a sudden he’d just stand up and stare right at you. And then he’d cry and he’d cry and-he?d cry again. and his nose got big’and red and his nose was runnin. There was this other guy there that I never saw before or again, just one--of those really long1 long thin boney hippies, one of these buys that they’ve been here for a thousand years; he.was carryin a feather. And he got down
on the floor, and he was goin’ around . down on the floor. And Hugh Romney wasI cryin and cryin. Finally, Hugh Romney started sayin, “may all spirits be peaceful, may all s’pirits be happy; May All Spirits Be Peaceful, May All Spirits Be Happy!” And he built it up, and we started pickin up guitars and drums and buildin it up : “May all spirits be peaceful, may all spirits be happy!!” Until he built it and it’d break like that and he’d get relief. Then he’d start again, ‘and th-edrums’d start again : May All Spirits, Be PeaceFul,-May All Spirits Be Happy! ! ; May all spirits be peaceful, May All Spirits Be Happy! ! ; May all spirits be peacefuland Bang! Bang!, and he’d start it again, and it was really gettin big, and it was: May all spirits-be peaceful, may all spirits be happy. and Bang! he did it to me, and I realized that he’d gone to each person in the room and done it to em, and said ’ to em-and this thing he can do, it’s. like when his dog had labor pains and he was feelin em-that at, that point he could in no way get. his own relief; he was sayin to me, you know, “Lighten up in there, do that thing, whatever it is, you kno.w, lighten up! ” So I -just had to do it, be- . cause I didn’t wanna hurt him. And I did it, and he goes “Phewwww! ” and gets relief. There were just two other people left in the room, one was Cassady and one was this guy called The,Hermit. And he went through the whole thing ‘with Cassady. Raisin’ it up and raisin’ it up like that. And Cassady squirmed around and ran around and finally relinquished, gave that in, whatever it is. And then there wasn’t anybody left in there but The Hermit, and Hugh Romney did it to The Hermit. Just because, kinda because- . I dunno: (cause he was the last one, and everybody ,else was in on it beforecit got there. Or just because,. uh, he’s- The Hermit, or whatever. But it builds to this thing: May all spirits be Peaceful and the Hermit was still just buzzin and doin’ a lotta shit and hustlin around. And everybody realized, “Well perhaps not,” you know, so I don’t wanna hang up Chicago with too much peacetalk.

In an interview with coach Delahey, before his team departed for their western exhibition trip. A much higher place in the standings was predicted for the Warriors, this was based on the almost exclusively veteran starting lineup. He noted that weak bench strength for both the offensive and defensive lines will probably be one of the biggest headaches. This situation was caused to some extent by the absence of Brent Gil-
bert who was lost to a work term committment and further aggrevated by last mondays game injury to Ian Miller. He should be back in three weeks if his shoulder responds to treatment. A not so new problem also is bothering the staff, their 3rd year veteran Dave Groves has had arm trouble and will be playing at flanker. So a very big question mark will remain with the two remaining quarterbacks Gerry Durocher and rookie
Cam Crosby. When asked of the team’s moral, Delahey said, “it is’ exceptionally high which is something that has been lacking in past years. ” In discussing the other OQAA teams, Delahey expects the most trouble from the Queens Golden Gaels who remain almost intact from last season. McGill although losing their offensive line seem strong enough to threaten to repeat as champions. The convincing victory over the
Saskatchewan Huskies was very satisfying to Delahey, but he warns of overconfidence. This same team was beaten badly by MacMaster who finished winless last season. He feels a truer picture of the team’s overall strengths and weaknesses will be gained, when the Warriors meet the St. Francis X-Men to-night in Antigonish N.S. St. Francis have always had a strong team and this years version has been strengthened
by some american players and two Ontario academic rejects. While in Nova Scotia, they will also play the St. Mary’s Huskies but this should provide nothing more than a chance to play rookies. In summation, coach Delahey sees a season in which the fans should have a lot to cheer about. Let’s hope so, maybe this year the Warriors will finally justify their expense budget.

not for all
No matter how successful, competitive sport as organized by the sports governing bodies can attract only a fraction of those Canadians who might be interested in physical recreation. A great many people, and not, only women and adults over 30 are not interested in organized competitive sport. Some prefer to compete less formally. Others are attracted to activities where the challenge is not against another person but is against oneself (as in jogging) or against the environment (as in camping). A competitive sport program does little for these people. After nine years of floundering, it appears that the federal government has produced the beginnings of a successful overall program for sports development. But if it wants ‘mass participation’, a sports program isn’t enough. The non-athletes have physical recreation needs too.

tally; I saw in the novebmer 19,1969, Telegram that Premier Robarts put a couple of smart aleck Trent university students in ‘their’ place when they sent him a report showing that the raw sewage of Lakefield college school is polluting one of /the Kawartha lakes. If you doubt that your government is working for ylou, read the whole article; it will lift -your spirits. Students like that should be forbidden to use the school bathrooms. That would smarten them up. l Fight birth control.. Every day on the face of the earth there are around 190,000, more .people than there were the day before, but Canada is not getting its share. Everybody benefits with the birth of a baby; diaper makers, nurses, undertakers, school teachers, etc. If we do not stop this sinful tampering with nature, where will- we get the people to bring to heel the yet unsubdued areas of our country? l When common’citizens are justified in their complaints, acknowledge them and correct the condition. For instance, the Cuyahoga river in ‘Ohio is so polluted with oils and chemicals that it caught on fire in 1968, burning two bridges and some sho’reline. Obviously, this is a hazard, and can be prevented by adding stillmore pollutants in the form of extinguishing chemicals. Another justified complaint concerns the unfair concentration of sulphur dioxide from a coal burning generating station on Toronto. Higher stacks (iOOfeet) are proposed, which will. give a wider dispessal. It is certainly not fair that a person on Sheppard avenue should breathe less sulphur dioxide than a person on Queen street. The anti-pollutionists has success with their .agitation againt DDT. You would wonder how they could put rodents and ca rsplat tering birds ahead of wormless apples. and bigger dividend cheques. But remember, our government must give a little to gain a little.
The radicals are- appeased, and they are less likely to notice how ineffectual those other anti-pollution bills are going to be. A token fine imposed on a company will not take the oil off the dead seals and polar bears and put it back in- the broken super tanker. The north must be polluted if we are going to progress. For industrial advancement and their own good’ (which is the same thing) the Eskimos must be brought into our culture and taught a trade.. Only blind st,ubbornness can cause a man to choose a dog team and musk ox meat ahead of a Cadillac and a bowl-of Chex. As.1 say, there is not much to fear from the anti-pollutionists, and I believe that their small number will decrease as ;we make further astounding advances even beyond electric tooth brushes, reducing ’ equipment, snowmobiles, instant breakfasts, super-jets, deformation chemicals and high-rise apartments. It is amazing how organizations like pollution probe and SPEC could even be formed and have the nerve to do anything that might hinder in any way such majestical9 spiralling progress, for which we plan, legislate educate, and even enforce (e.g. Spanish river). It may not be worth the effort, except for the sake of justice, but perhaps the, ringleaders of such groups should be brought into court, or before a government hearing. We have the law on our side. Like Spiro Agnew, I believe that the silent majority respects the law, not the placards of rabblerousers.

Nixon-Litton gravy train -rolls again
HE NIXON ADMINISTRATION recently awarded the biggest navy shipbuilding contract in history, a $2.1 billion deal for 30 destroyers, to the Litton systems shipyards in Mississippi. While the Nixon people have longstanding ties to Litton. (Litton executives were among the biggest contributors to the Nixon campaign-altogether association involving Nixon, Litton, and various Mississippi politicians, has an intricate and suggestive history. In 1967, the Mississippi legislature agreed to issue $130 million in bonds in order to build a shipyard which could be leased to Ingalls shipbuilding Corp., a Litton subsidiary. It is unusual for a state to build a shipyard for private industry, and one of the politicians who helped engineer this novel deal is Ellis Bodron, chairman of the state senate finance committee. Few knew it at the time, but Bodron, a Vicksburg attorney, was also retained by Litton. (Over the years Bodron worked his magic well with the Mississippi legislature for Litton in various ways. When the state presented Litton with a bill for $200 million in back taxes, Bodron used his influence as state finance committee chairman to persuade the state tax commission to drop the matter. The taxes were forgotten for four years until a reporter wrote up the scandal in the New Orleans limes-Picayune. Then Litton quickly shelled out $170 million and everything was hushed up.) Wall Street wasn’t much inter-
ested in the shipyard bonds. Initially the bonds were given a poor rating, which would have meant a high interest rate for the state and poor market reception. Mississippi politicians flew back and forth to New York to cajole the bond men into giving a better rating. At the suggestion of Litton, Mississippi hired the renowned bond attorney, John Mitchell, of the prestigious firm of Nixon, Mudge, to straighten things out. Mitchell interceded with a bond-rating agency, and after he explained the intricacies of Mississippi law, the ratings were revised upwards. The bonds were eventually sold off. There was strong feeling in congress that the huge navy contract should have been spread around among shipyards. A couple of months ago the house approved an amendment by Louis C.-Wyman (R-N.H. ) which would have made construction of destroyers in more than one shipyard mandatory. However, .within the last few weeks, the Senate armed service committee in closed session voted to strike the amendment from a defense procurement bill. The chairman of the senate committee, John Stennis, is believed to have been instrumental in killing the amendment. Stennis and other members of the Mississippi delegation had lobbied hard for Litton. The chief competitor with Litton for the destroyer contract was Bath iron works Corp. in Maine. While Maine is desperate for jobs, the Litton yards in Mississippi already are backlogged with navy work. In previous navy work, Litton ran up big cost overruns. Originally

And speaking of the coffee house, may we comment that it would indeed be nice if such a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere as was present during Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee’s orientation gig could be achieved during some of the pubs in the campus center through the rest- of the year. There is absolutely no reason on earth why a “pub” on this campus has to be a beersotted orgy of muscular diarrhea. Surely one of the clubs could see fit to limit entrance to a decent number of people so quiet conversation could take place, and provide good local folksingers or blues vocalists in the background. Because of the slight loss of gate money, perhaps- the federation could sponsor this type of pub and assume the small deficit required to pay a reasonable performer. So there.
OUR LORD, who art in the Treasury, name, they power be prolonged, thy will the empire, as it is in each session. Give and forgive us our occassional absences promise not to -forgive those that divide us not out df our places; but keep us in the the land of Pensions and Plenty; and People Amen -William
