Uniwat’s new parking regulations were discussed by Al Romenko and a staff association group at the association’s meeting Wednesday. The group, which had less than a quorum also looked at the development of greivance procedures. Talking about the new system of keys and decals for the faculty and staff parking, Romenko said while “trying not to sell the idea of the old or the riew system of parking”, that the new system is “the best possible at this time; you (the staff association) are coming out pretty good.“President of the staff association, Jim Cook gave the background of the PPR, procedure for problem resolution. He said, “The function of PPR is to try and prevent problems of staff and fa,culty from getting so big they have to go to final arbitration.” A draft proposal for PPR in becoming policy goes through four levels of discussion: the - staff association, the managerial administration of directors and assistant directors, the deans, and the executive committee. Asked how the membership of the staff association could give imput to the altered and non-public draft, after the draft left the staff association, Ernie Lucy of personnel said, “The test comes when the reaction to the policy is negative and destructive.” Asking the meeting to bear with him, Romenko said each faculty, staff and student in the university community of 15,000 people, considers themselves experts with different points of view on the issue of parking. He explained how his department had reversed the regular procedure of doing things. The

discuss

staff association and similar bodies were consulted to find out where they stood on parking. “I received thiry-eight letters from members of the association voicing their feelings and concerns,” said Romenko. “It’s grand to hear from all of you; all the total imput goes into a package to serve the university community and its visitors.” Continuing Romenko said, “We’ve- gone to consultarits and great expertise to find the cheapest and best controlled parking without causing debate.” Romenko talked about the new parking procedure for faculty and staff. Both will be provided with a

parking

pre-numbered key and a parking decal. The key activates an automatic gate. The driver has to stop and use the key for entry. Romenko cautioned, “The keys cannot be duplicated here. Some enterprising students will find a way to get one.” He continued, “The keys are pre-numbered and the decals haveto be on the cars.” Both will be checked by security and unissued keys would be requested to be handed over. Romenko‘ related how Burt Matthews, president, asked wherehe would keep his key for parking for usually he would have it on his

key chain in the ignition. How would he get the car going when the keys are in the parking gate? Asking for questions Romenko said, “Anyone here have any htingups? ” Romenko replied to the question of grad students and their lack of similar parking privileges to the faculty, “They’re the greatest offenders.” He said this year there are 200 grad students who have registered for parking and he’s sure many more have cars. Where do they park?

Need cash to register The university’s business office has denied many students lacking money, permission to register this fall. In contrast to previbus years, poor students or students whose government loans have not yet been approved are now denied credit for payment of their tuition and residence fees. , Registrar Trevor Boyes agreed that this was a move to diminish the large number of students in the past who could not make good on their promisory notes. But Boyes said despite the restrictions he didn’t think the university would turn anyone away since, “Everytime we turn away a student we lose the government grant.” , (The provincial government gives each university a money allocation per student at the beginning of each academic year.) Where several students complained the measure would force them to withdraw. Boyes said the university would have to arrange “alternate financing” for the first installment of their; fees-60 per cent of the total. This “alternate financing” is being arranged through John Phillips of financial services. Though Phillips was not available for comment, the university’s head accountant Lloyd Sequin said the university had been in favor of a “normal fee” arrangement which variew with the individual student. .

“If a student is totally unsure of his’ finances, he doesn’t get in. If he has applied for a student loan before august first, we let him in,” said Sequin, “and if he has applied after august first, he gets individual advice form our credit manager (Phillips >.’ ’ In some cases this has meant suggesting the students obtain a bank loan often at an interest rate of 11 per cent, according to a local bank manager.

.

Sequin added students must have the money to cover minimum residence accommodation. “After all,” he said, “we have to fill the Village in September.” Even though some students admit receiving adequate summer warning of the policy, couthselling services director Bill Dick feels this is characteristic -of “ one more part of our big educational machine which get,s away from dealing with trust on a personal level.” ’ Federation of students vice-president Carl Sulliman said he had arbitrated on behalf of a couple of students this week and had received a satisfactory response form the administration. He warned, however, that escalation of the situation could result in an approach to Queen’s Park for an investigation.

He was referring to the’ Kitchener-Waterloo experiment where pollution probe proved to both cities that they would make money if they picked up paper and sold it. The cities turned down the suggestion for fear of loosing money on the project. Pasternak told Kerr how the provincial representative Ken Childs is )actually discouraging recycling efforts.

This led to a discussion of perceptual defense which he defined as the observation of emotionally disturbing words objects or expressions being harder to perceive than neutral words. He took the remaining half hour to point out three factors in the design of experiments in perception. The three items mentioned were the accuracy of the figures which were derived from pre-experimentation, reliable figures which had a high degree of repeatability and a more nebulous point which would assure that the question the subject answers was the same as the one given. Bryden concluded the class with a reference to an experiment done by Mathews and Wer Theimer which he claimed was a possibility in eliminating nuisance factors in perceptual experiment. This reporter observed about half of the class bored during the first half hour of class. If they were so,. why didn’t they either get up and leave or tell the prof that he was taking too long. If the prof only intended to say what he said, he should have taken ten minutes to explain it and then dismissed the class. If people want interesting, challenging courses, then someone has to take the initative.

\ The western world, and especially the United States, is slowly eating itself to death as it stokes down nutty doodle snacks, hot dogs, balloon bread, chickens and steaks, canned orange juice, dehydrated soups, soft drinks, cakes made from mixes, and imitation whipped cream-all u sodden with 3000 different synthetic flavors, colors, thickeners, acidifiers, bleaches, preservatives, package contaminants, antibiotics and poison pesticides. The word to the industry is out: the more additives, “the higher the potential profit margin”, (writes Food Engineering, a leading trade journal ) . The corporate food monopolies have taken over and are remaking food in their own image. General Mills, General Foods and Kellogg produce close to 75 percent ‘of all breakfast cereals (most of them a feast of empty calories j. General Foods and General Mills alone manufacture the majority of synthetic foods; in all, ten huge corporations make the bulk of the foods sitting on supermarket shelves (and also export tons abroad). Additives play a crucial role in the maintenance of this hegemony. They allow high-speed production; they minimize costs and let the foods endure over thousands of miles of transportation and buffeting, keeping them fresh-looking and tasting for long‘ periods of time ., The food industry, with $130.6 billion in sales last year-a 63 percent increase since 1960-is the nation’s largest and fastestgrowing business. Sales of con. venience and synthetic foods are outpacing the traditional foods, and the consumer is paying for it. Additives cut costs for the manufacturers : cakes that once needed eggs and butter now need only tiny amounts of synthetic and , flavoring and coloring emulsifier. Fruit juices no longer need fruit. But perhaps the biggest in food is just the “revolution” beginning : the spun ‘soy bean protein, a bland, tasteless creature of industry research. which every additive in existence can turn into something resembling meat, vegtables, almost anything. It’s true that soy products contain as much protein as real meat. But that’s only part of the story. To taste like meat (or vegtables) the soy isolates must be smothered and pumped with every synthetic known. And furthermore,warns one prominent researcher, “When we replace natural foods with. synthetic protein substitutes, we lose many trace minerals and vitamins. We don’t know everything about this area, so we’re in a transition period that has serious dangers.” One pound of isolated soy protein costs only 30 Cents dry-but when it’s hydrated, pumped with water, oil, flavorings and other chemicals it expands to three times its size. When you buy soy protein “beef s troganoff” fro,m the Thomas Lipton company-via Unilever corporation“you’re getting what you pay for,” vice president Ernie Felicieti assures, “since a real meat product would cost four times as much.” But once you realize that this soy protein costs Lipton about one-ninth what meat would cost it doesn’t seem like such a great deal.

Geneticists like Nobel Laureate Joshua Lederberg and Bruce Ames fret about the human gene pool. They think synthetic foods may be fouling it up--only we won’t discover what we’ve done to the human race for generations, when it’s too late. All chemicals in the food supply carry FDA’s blessing for one or two reasons. Either they are listed as GRAS-“ Generally listed as safe,” as are all the additives that were in use when Congress passed the food additive amendment of 1958 and which seem okay after years of use-or food additive regulations restrict their use to levels which laboratory tests ostensibly have shown to be safe. Actually, less than half the additives on the market have ever been tested in a laboratory. It’s hard to eat with gusto when the FDA keeps discovering new toxicological surprises. In the past few years it has been forced to ban

Each year North Americans discard about seven million cars, 48,000,000,000 tin cans and 8O,OOO,OOO,OOOpounds of paper. The average person throws away about a ton of solid wastes per year and the amount increases appreciably each year. More and more disposable products are made. In 1969, for example, 20,000,000,000 glass beverage containers, 453 000,000 hair spray cans and 315,oo0,00o deodorant aerosol cans were produced in the US. Although the reality of numbers may not be comprehensible they certainly illustrate how our society wastes its resources and they poignantly suggest that we cannot continue to produce indiscriminately more and more If the so called con venience products. Anyone with an elementary knowledge of how compound interest works and a bit of environmental foresight appreciates that’ this squandering of our resources cannot persist indefinitely. Even if we were not so wasteful we would still have severe resource problems in the future because we foolishly allow materials that can be reused to be durrped and lie fallow. In the not so distant future we will be mining our present day sanitary landfill sites. What can we of this area do about the solid waste problem? Although total recovery of all the valued components of our rubbish is an exciting goal there is no way that the individual or pollution probe can change the present values and practices of our society. Fortunately we can make a vital start. Waste paper can be recycled easily and economically. A paper recycling industry exists, although it is diminishing. In 1945, about 35 percent of the waste paper was recycled; today we recycle about 18 percent of the waste paper. In the past year, K-W pollution probe has used Kitchener and Waterloo to initiate recycling projects. The standard query of many of the alderman was whether the amount of reusable waste paper in the area was worth considering. However, a few statistics of the local use of newspaper provides the answer. The Kitchener-Waterloo has a net paid circulation

On the average, the weekly weight of the Record is four pounds, thus in. one week 70 tons of newspapers are delivered locally and in one year about 3640 tons of K-W Records are distributed. This amount of paper could fill 300 boxcars and represent the destruction of 62,000 trees. Currently newspapers and magazines are worth 6 dollars a ton.

“The

Cultivators

Handbook

of

Marijuana”, published just last year, is probably by far one of the most complete technical and informative manuals in this field. Marijuana is perhaps one of the most misunderstood subjects going around today. Besides those who misunderstand its physical effects on humans, a great deal of regular users have some very false ideas about how cannabis grows and how one cultivates it. For this reason I would like to suggest that those who think they know a little and even a lot about cannabis, get this book. What one will find unique about “The Cultivators Handbook’* is that it is written as a guide for the serious farmer and or home cultivator. It is quite technical and has some very “ . . .heavy biological rap(s)...“. This, however, should not stop the curious observer from taking a look. “The Cultivators Handbook” can help the user recognise good grass by how it is grown and detect

Grow

treated grass. For the farmer the book4- points out some of the false notions many have about marijuana : did you know that infra-red light is bad for cannabis plants, it can even kill them? that the male plant can be smoked and get you stoned ? (they aren’t as potent but they’re not useless) ; that you can grow really good grass - right in your own living room? He discusses how to recognise a male or female plant, what type of soil, temperature and 3 light, etc., is good for the best plants, and how to recognise good seeds. Included are numerous graphs, charts and drawings. Also in one amazing photograph, there is a forest of cannabis plants looming up over the head of a farmer. Did you know that cannabis can grow as high as 25 feet? Finally, if you are interested, “The Cultivator’s Handbook of Marijuana’* is published in both the U.S. and Canada. I bought my copy at the Book Barn in Waterloo. If they are all gone there, write to the Agrarian Reform Company, P.O. Box 2447, Eugene, Oregon 97402. You might have a little bit of trouble with customs however. One last reminder, marijuana is still, yes still, illegal, but at least one can plan for the future and meanwhile enjoy. Peace.

hener RANK 6ODBLE is a distinguished-looking man, greying just nicely. He has a good job with the B.F. Goodrich head office here. He is also an alderman for the city of Kitchener. But he is quite open and honest, especially on his doubts about his own real qualifications. for city office, and offers none of the elusive hype which most local politicos use when dealing with the press. Before we got down to talking about the market, Hoddle explained that one of hos own sons had hair longer than mine and that he’d dropped out of school and joined a rock band. But Hoddle explained that it didn’t matter to him, he was going to let his son find his own way without pushing him. Hoddle explained carefully how a citizens’ committee on urban renewal in Kitchener had been formed-at the citizens’ initiative-back in 1963. The 50-person committee gathered renorts lci~~d at nther continually reported their findings and recommendations to city council. All of this, Hoddle pointed out, was done at the committee’s own expense, not the taxpayer’s. Public meetings were held, though they were “not all that well attended.”

..‘.two

aldermen... Urban renewal, it seems, is something everyone likes to hitch about after it gets in gear, but no one likes to help in the complex job of planning it. All along, Hoddle told me, the committee worked around one basic concept: that ring roads will be built around the downtown core, with six parking garages built at strategic sites, to eventually take all traffic off King street, leaving it a “completely pedestrian mall.” The council, recalled Hoddle, agreed with that basic concept in 1965, and models outlining this basic cbncept have been on display at the COE for several years. In 1968, the council officially adopted this concept as its target, and arranged a $16-million grant from the federal and provincial governments for development. The grant, he says, was soon chopped to just $3 million, but council still backed the concept. Here, according to Hoddle, came the crunch: “We on council had to face two clear alternatives, either development by the city or by private developer. I think the answer there is obvious.” The Queen-Frederick street area, he said, has always been looked upon as the worst area of downtown and so council tended to think in terms of improving it first. Between 1968 and 71, Hoddle says, council looked for proposals,

but the offers were either too far out of line with reality or they fell through at the negotiating stage. Then, council was approached by Oxlea Developments, Ltd., an Edmonton firm which has recently re-developed several Canadian downtown core areas. Council, he says, was following two main rules in looking for deals : f li the farmer’s market had to be retained, and (2) the city hall was up for grabs for the right offer. “We adopted the Oxlea plan,” said Hoddle, “because it fit in with the concept, it was in line with the rules and it could be done without an additional burden to the taxpayer. “It is simply unfair to say that it& was sprung on the people suddenly; perhaps it is more fair to say that people knew but weren’t concerned because nothing of substance had been done until then.” The final business deal kwith Oxlea was done in strictest secret, he admits, but Hoddle holds that there was nothing sinister in that“.. .businesses won’t deal on any other basis in matters of this sort.” I asked him if he didn’t feel that the secret deals were contrary to democratic process. “No,” he answered after considering the question for a few moments, “because I think we were following a pattern...perhaps

I

f

the pattern is outdated in this day and age, but what we did was not out of line with what is being done all over the country in these matters, and its not out of whack with past deals we’ve had, such as getting new industries into this city . No-one complained then. ” Why did you buy the Oxlea deal personally, I asked. “Because I want to bring people back into the core of the city, so that it’s not just a place for cars and machines.” . Hoddle told me that, in his job, he travels quite a bit. He has seen, he said, what is happenning to cities like Niagara Falls, NY, and Akron, Ohio. What about charges that the city was being financially screwed on the deal by Oxlea and not getting what the market and city hall property is worth? “We might have gotten someone who would’ve paid more for the property,” he admitted. “But they wouldn’t have followed the ?ity’s concept of redevelopment. They would have bought the property and it would’ve been theirs to do with as they pleased.” “You see, a lot of people don’t realize that a part of the price we charged for the property was that the developer follow our plans for the ci&. They don’t count that as part of the price we’re getting, which is a lot.”

:

I

Then he thought that the deal had been a good one for the city? “Yes, the council acted in good faith throughout, at least according to established procedure from the past.” Ald. Hoddle is quite willing to put his judgement to the test before the voters-“‘ there’s a good possibility it will be an election issue”-and admits openly that he might very well be wrong. “15-n no financial expert of urban development expert. None of us on council are, that’s the problem with democraticallyrun governments. We’re all people who ran for office because we care about what happens to the city and we spend a few hours a week acting on adviCe from people who are ex-’ perts.. .if it were any more than a few hours a week, it would mean professional city councillors.” Hoddle then reminisced with me about his memories of the market when he was young. “I went to the market about 44 years ago, taking my wagon to haul the goods home...horses and buggies were common then.. .there were lots more Mennonite folks, and less traffic.. . “The market is not so much the physical building as it is the people. I’ve always felt it was rather a bad building, but it was a place to meet people. I have no hang-up about the market as a building. ” I

known HAD ONLY Morley Rosenberg through hearsay and his publicity as the only Kitchener alderman to vote against the Oxlea plan for the market and city hall .’ land. I was surprised when I followed his directions to a typical splitlevel suburban house near Stanley park. I was even more surprised to find that the city’s great dissenter is a short-haired very averagelooking lawyer. Unfortunately, that tells you more about me than it does about Rosenberg. At 34, he is the youngest man on the Kitchener council, and, despite his short hair and average-ness, the other aldermen tend to think of him as a hippie-lover and defender of the long-haired youth. There is good reason for this, since Rosenberg is the lawyer for the federation of students and has been involved in a lot of studenthousing and civil-rights cases. His office, incidently, is across the street from the market square and hence part of the area schedule for destruction under Oxlea-Eaton’s plan for redevelopment. Rosenberg has a-very attractive wife and is a father and has been an alderman for four years and has run, unsuccessfully; for both federal and provincial office for the NDP. Although he says he does not plan on running in the next federal or Ontario elections, he is almost Messianic about the coming prominance of the NDP in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Though he has been a minor thorn in the side of the Kitchener council since he was elected, his status as resident rebel wasn’t made official until Rosenberg first

“Kitchener isn’t exactly a bombed-out city,” Rosenberg maintains. “We’ve had urban development going on since 1963, by private developers; things like McKenzie King Square, which. is now in a sort of limbo sincecouncil has committed itself to Oxlea.” Predictably , and unlike Hoddle’s evaluation of the situation, Rosenberg thinks that the majority of Kitchener’s citizens are against what council has done. He can outline several diverse or overlapping reasons various groups and individuals have formed in opposition to the Oxleadevelopment deal, but makes no bones about the fact that he will accept them all into his own opposition. He claims that most opposition forms on the basis of the loss of green area at city hall, poor financial conditions in the city’s part of the deal, the aversion to secrecy in a democratic *civic government, the killing of the atmosphere, if not the structure of the farmer’s .market or a combination of those reasons. Rosenberg also decries what he sees as a slap in the face of the Kitchener voters. “In the past year, we’ve had more public participation in council than the first three years I was on it,” he says. ’ “I hate to see that public involvement shot down now by council’s arrogance.” Rosenberg claims that $1.7 million has already been spent on McKenzie King Square, with the public assuming that the govemment offices were going to be tied in with that. “And regional government is coming,” he insists, “so why are we committing ourselves to 15 years in this Oxlea building? “None of this has been tied in. It’s too premature. Why rush in?”

friday

Rosenberg has not endeared himself to his fellow aldermen, and does not seem to care that many of them think of him right now as a political opportunist. “I’ve alienated them, sure, I’ve raised a lot of issues, I’ve been a$ rebel. But that’s my job as I see it here, to question the staff of the city, the experts, and the other aldermen. “I have no responsibilities or duties to the other aldermen. I do have a duty to the people. “I don’t care if they (the other aldermen) think I’m credible or not. The people are asking for more information on this scheme now, and I think that’s an in-’ dication I’m doing my job as a representative of the people.” Rosenberg also makes no pretensions about his lack of love for the rest of the city govemment’s members. “I think they are running scared,” he says of the mayor and the aldermen who are pushing the Oxlea plan through public meetings and city-funded advertising pamphlets. “All the ads, all the publicity, the whole justification of what they’re doing and what they’ve done. “They see their whole power structure and methods of operating being put to question for the first time by the public, and there’s a cozy little group running things here that doesn’t like questions.” So how far will Rosenberg go in his opposition to the Oxlea situation? . “Right to the end, as far as we have to go,” he states definitely. But, somehow, he doesn’t seem definite about what he means by that.

“I find that all natural forms are a source of unending interesttree: trunks, the growth ‘of branches from the trunk, each finding its individual airspace, the texture and variety of grasses, the shape of shells and of pebbles. The whole of nature is an endless demonstration of shape and form, and it surprises me when artists try to escape this. Not to look at and to use nature in one’s work is unnatural to me.”

A man who likes nature, sculpture which emits a sense of life, an aesthetic theory which delights in the endless variation of natural forms, all of these can be found at the Kitchener-Waterloo art gallery. What is perhaps most delightful about this exhibit is that it gives the viewer an indepth look at the artist-human and the artistcreator. Arranged in a kind of maze through the gallery are large photographs of the artist, the artist at work, and sculpture. Accompanying these are quotes from Moore about his works, and what happens to these ideas. This is an excellent opportunity for the nonartist to experience the thought processes which are present in creative activity. The first thing one will realize about Moore is that he is a very methodical man. It seems that he approaches his work mostly through a series of self-created problems. This can be seen continually at work from the beginning of his career to the present. Unlike many artists who are obsessed with one single concept, Moore allows hi< work to wander through the endless variations on shape, form, space, and texture and material. Therefore, it isnot surprising to- find his work reminiscent of a large variety of so-called periods or art movements. One example of this would be his series of ‘Holes and Hollows’. He admits to having an obsession with ‘holes’ in one period of his development. His use of ‘holes’ was his solution to the problem of space and three-dimensional form. His continual recognition of the technical force at work within his pieces has consequently produced a large stylistic variety throughout his sculptures. Choosing two contrasting pieces as an example, we find that the piece ‘Helmet’, superb in its use of negative space and internal and external forms, is

different in style to that of ‘Head’, a very smooth, curving work with a feeling of solidness, with the ‘holes’ used for the creation of solidity. Besides getting a thorough idea of Moore the creator, the audience will get a first hand view of the created. Although there are many excellent photographs, theK-W gallery acquisitioned from various Canadian galleries five of his sculptures. Of the five, the most imposing is the ‘Warrior with Shield’ or ‘Seated Warrior’. This bronze piece is a good example of how Moore comes upon an idea and creates from that idea. “The idea for the ‘Warrior with Shield’ came to me at the end of 1952 or very early in 1953. It was evolved from a pebble I found on the seashore in the summer of 1952, and which reminded me of a stump of a.leg, amputated at the hip.”

Moore is a compulsive collector of objects such as flint-stones, pebbles and driftwood and bones; from thkse he gets many of his ideas and often uses them for creating texture on the sculpture. There is some use of this kind of natural texture on the bronze piece ‘Mother and Child? at the entrance to the gallery. Unfortunately, one of the most interesting of the sculptures, ‘King and Qeen’, ia shown in the form of a photograph. The bronze sheds scrne light on the use of symbolism. . “Perhaps the clue to this sculpture is the Kings head, which is a combination of a crown, beard and face, symbolizing a mixture of primitive kinship, and a kind of animal pan-like quality. The King is more relaxed and assured in poise than the Queen who is more upright and conscjously queenly. When I came to do the heads and feet of the figures, they gave me a chance to express my ideas further by making them more realistic to bring out the contrast between human grace and the concept of power in Kingshop.”

There is a slide in the rear of the gallery, narrated by Moore on tape, which adds a great deal to this excellent collage of Henry Moore. There is so much more to be seen in this show, SO the best thing to do is go and see it.

M(indsor The footballing warriors beat the Windsor lancers 185-135 in yardage last weekend. However ,‘ distance gained is not the factor which differentiates the conquered from the victor. On the scoreboard, the lancers won the game 6-O. Most of the territory covered by the warriors was in their own end. Coach Wally Delahey said, “We would kick from our 45 to their 4, but they would run it right back to the 45”. This downfield punt coverage is one of two main deficiencied which cost the warriors this im,portant league opener. The other big letdown was in pass reception. In the first haif, receivers warrior would-be dropped five of six passes all of which were ‘right on the money’. In the previous two seasons, the main criticism was that the quarterback tossed the ball nowhere near the receivers. The throwing accuracy which may be the saving point of the warriors in future games was demonstrated by Chuck Wakefield. Speaking of his chucker, coach Delahey said, “I was very impressed by Chuck, he called a good game and threw well”. Wakefield played the entire game, but his position is well supported by Chris D’Arcy, a lefthanded freshman quarterback from Toronto. D’Arcy was not called into action during the last game but may experience some playing time tomorrow against the mustangs. When asked what to expect from Western, Delahey said, “A lot of offense. They also have experienced personnel. I believe the mustangs had around 25 players return this season and they picked up some transfers as well. They

-division with u win

thdr

have a good running attack and they are also able to pass. Our defense will have to be ready for them.” The warrior defense showed good pass coverage as the lancers ended last weekend’s game with a minus four yard passing average. The Windsor quarterback attempted only two plays in the air. One was intercepted and while rolling out for the other, he was grounded for a loss. The offence also showed signs of fire but were not very consistent. “We showed good offensive action periodically, gaining consecutive first downs, but these were only sporadic” commented the head coach. I Delahey was reluctant to note any outstanding players in last Saturday’s game, stating only that this year’s team strength will rest on their good attitude towards the game and a real ‘team feeling’. The offensive yardage was boosted by Brian Beatty who collected 5 passes for 70 yards and by the punt return efforts of Rick Wiedenhoft collecting an average of 20 yards on each runback. Guard Harvey Weiner also played -a strong game for the warriors. Defensively, linebacker Rick Cheevers taught the lancers to respect number 76. Warriors go back into action tomorrow at 2 :00 pm at Seagram stadium. This game will also be televised live on CHCH-TV channel 11.

or the past three years Gord McLellan has been a football warrior and a student in the school of physical education. His impact on campus after arriving from the Ottawa valley was not long in coming. Electrifying runs and constant enthusiasm saw him boost the warriors with his league fourth in rushing and a total of seven touchdowns: second best for the conference. The runs were fewer and less frequent in the second year, but- Gord managed to show his brilliance by returning punts and kick-offs for remarkable gains. Gord was plaqued with the same blues in his final year here and saved all his magic for one game. It was the or lly win of the warrior year when Gord ran back the bball on three separate occasions for eighteen 011 thn cnnrinrr points anG4 UI1 tiAJbWgtnrlnn , , CACbI I”” clL”I “‘6. Somewhat disillusioned, Gord decided to try another school and h as headed for Queens. So he is now in the hands of Frank Tyndall’s ;ultures and our fate rests in his hands a week this Saturday.

here are several eligible ex-warriors who are either sitting out t season here at Waterloo or transferred and playing for other teams. Don Manahan, captain of last years squad, is playing for the Water1 Lutheran golden hawks this year. From what he has seen of the warric he feels that they won’t win a game this season. He attributes this to t lack of experienced players, but adds that the situation may imporve the coaching problems have been resolved. He can see the golden hawks going all the way this year and when ask about the difference in coaching between Waterloo and Lutheran stated that he could “spend hours on that”. At Lutheran he stated there is great cooperation between players a coaches. “They make you feel like you want to play ball”. “I’ve learnec lot this year . . ..more than in two years at Waterloo,” he asserted. Warren Hull was defensive captain two years ago and played fot t warriors last year as well. He feels that this years team is better than t one two years ago but it still won’t have a winning season . The playt are too young and inexperienced this year, although Hull notes that this a recuring problem. Warren isn’t playing this year because “he didn’t s eye to eye with the coach on the way the team was being run”. Gord McLellan, onetime Warrior backfielder, noted that the warric had lost quite a few players but he hadn’t seen the team work out, so couldn’t comment on their chances this year. Gord is playing for t powerful Queens golden gaels this year and is looking forward to a 1: season. He’s not playing for the warriors because he “wasn’t hap here”. He stated that football meant a great deal to him and he was getting played enough at Waterloo. Bill Hogan, a two year warrior veteran, scored two touchdowns f Lutheran this weekend. He was unavailable for comment, but D Manahan his teammate made it clear that the and Bill had discussed t university of Waterloo situation at length and that Bill too was a lot ma pleased with the coaching at Lutheran. Coach Delahay has indicated that all the problems have been work out this year. It seems unfortunate that this couldn’t have happened 1; year so that we could have still been able to utilize the talents of the able veterans.

or the past two seasons there has been considerable player unrest near and at the end of the football schedule. With the completion of the worst season of football at Waterloo the players started to air their beefs a little more publicly. It wasn’t until february of this year and the hockey team’s boycott of the athletic banquet, that Carl Totzke the athletic director, agreed to call a meeting with the players. Most of the meeting was devoted to a variety of subsidiary beefs but the overriding issue of the evening was the status of Wally Delahey as head football coach. The football players were there to demand his resignation, and cut through the preamble of Carl Totzke to press their problems home. It was

From here it was all down hill as the enthusiasm died down and the petition was quickly forgotten. The only course open to the bitter veterans was to pack their bags and head to a new school where they would be happier playing football or stay at Waterloo and choose not to play ball. Some chose to stay and still combine living in Waterloo and playing football, they are now performing for the people down the road, the golden hawks of Lutheran. Looking at the other side of the coin, the athletic department reports that their fences have been mended and no such occurences shall happen in the future.

too! Blues. lose firsf :Qame The RAVENS 12 UofT 3 ’ halves While the -warriorswere fumbling their way into a 6-6 loss to the university of Windsor lancers, the other league temas were in full force hammering each other. The big upset occurred in Ottawa where Carleton’s ravens put it to the University of Toronto blues, l23.

.

An excellent defence, good play selection by quarterback Dave Redmond and the kicking of Harber were the vital ingredients the ravens added to cook the blues. The blues held a wide territorial advantage in the first half, allowing ravens across the midfield stripe only twice. But a dropped pass by Cor Doret on the Carleton 40 when he was in the clear, wide field goal attempt by Don Thompson from the 38 and fine defensive plays by the ravens deep in their zone cost Varsity a possible 17 points. The first half closed scoreless. Recognizing Toronto’s control of outside plays, Redmond went inside consecutively to move ravens from their seven to Toronto’s thirty. The turning point came on the next play. A wobbly kick by Harber went uncontrolled and raven’s Allan MacRae recovered. Two plays later, Ross Reid went over for Carleton’s first score which was converted by Keith Guild. Blues struck back late in the quarter with a 32-yard field goal by freshman Don Thompson. Gaining confidence, the Toron to players conceded a safety touch early in the final quarter hoping to generate a touchdown march. That possibility was squelched, however, by Cartleton’s sharp pass defence. Redmond took over again and moved the ball 65 yards to the ten and Guild kicked an easy field goal to clinch the game with only two minutes showing. Carleton’s tight pass defense kept Wayne Dunkley, leading passer in the OQAA last year to three completions in fifteen attempts. Ravens picked up 154 yards rushing and 83 passing to the blues 154 and 57. Carleton held a 14-g advantage in first downs.

game was even in both with the Gee Gees leading lo-’ at ha1f time. ’ York gave up four interceptions and a fumble to pace their defeat.

WLU 34 MAC 13 Lutheran’s golden hawks put together a dazzling first half performance last weekend and at the end of thirty minutes of play,’ led the MacMaster Marauders 27‘* The. Hawks, missing only six players from last year’s squad made good use of former warrior Bill Hogan. Hogan, who played could only manage 23 on the ground and 78 through the air.

New awareness The women’s intramural athletic council is looking forward to a big new season with many more women participitating than ever before. The council is working on a ‘new awareness program’ in hopes of encouraging the females at Waterloo to spend their $22 a little more wisely. The council members and the women’s intramural .director will be visiting all campus residences to explain the IM program. They hope that this directapproach will make the girls on campus more aware of the facilities and equipment available to them and encourage greater female participitation. Some of the more popular

with the Waterloo (university of) team last year, collected three passes for 129 yards two for majors.

Another former warrior, Gord McLellan led the Queen’s Golden Gaels to a 65-6 lopsided victory .over Laurentian with three. touchdowns. The schedule will be shuffled, and teams go into action once again tomorrow. The “other” Waterloo team will meet Guelph,, while Queen’s and Ottawa will ’ have a showdown on the latter’s home field. The warriors will attempt to hand Western their first 10~s and move themselves into the now blank win column.

La Crise d’octobre by Gerard Pelletier published by Editions du Jour. $4.00

Gerald Pelletier is a man of integrity and great intellectual honesty. So it hardly is surprising that his analysis of “La Crise d’octobre” wavers agonizingly between justification of the government’s hard-line policy and his own logical conclusions. The book may teach us very little new about the FLQ crisis; it teaches us something about the mind of an intelligent man who loves his country and tries to purge his own conscience by writing down his thoughts. “If I had been a commentator throughout the crisis...” is perhaps one of the most significant phrases in the book. Pelletier the journalist had to sit back and let Pelletier the politician follow the government line. But it bothered him. The ambiguity of the book leads to two irreconcilable positions ; the federal and provincial governments were taken by surprise when the two kidnappings occurred, they had to act swiftly, they could not believe it would happen here; on the other hand, they had been carefully watching the growth of the FLQ since 1963 and they had apprehended two potential plots in Montreal only that summer. You can’t have it both ways. Either the government knew what would happen, and showed remarkable weakness in allowing it to escalate, or it was taken by surprise-in which case it would be as well to revise the structures of our police and intelligence forces. Pellet& says the extreme measures were taken because the federal government had to judge not only what it knew about the FLQ but also what the FLQ claimed-in terms of size, following and power. Why, then does he make no mention of the fact that Montreal’s former executive chairman, Lucien Saulnier, told a parliamentary commission a full year earlier that plans existed for an armed

their opinions on domestic policy. Too often only the critical voices raise themselves loud enough to be heard. Please don’t let this happen to opportunities for youth if you feel that it is a worthwhile project. F. Crowley Birth control center an opportunities for youth project

revolutionary insurrection in Montreal. The distinction between popular and non-popular insurrections, is, I think, a question of semantics. 4s Pelletier points out, whether an uprising has popular support or not, it poses a threat and must be dealt with as best the authorities can. He himself draws a parallel between the FLQ and the Nazis in 1938. Here there is another startling ommission-no mention of the alleged conspiracy to form a provisional government. Why? Pelletier claims the government could act only on instinct. Playing the “Monday-morning quarterback” admittedly, he adds “personally, I am not convinced that serious troubles would have resulted had we not taken exceptional measures.” Judgment was made “essentially on probabilities,” he tells us. revolutionary So, as the literature he includes shows, the FLQ was growing in force and sophistication-and the police were not informing the government which was caught unawares. No wonder the result was a Keystone-type search through the cupboards and sewers for more than two months! The significance of the book is perhaps not so much what it says, but why it was written. Disclaim as he might, Pelletier will convince no one that the book is not an official government statement, the closest we probably will ever come to finding out how the federal government acted during the crisis. At least, until some indiscreet cabinet member writes his memoirs years hence. As a counterweight to “Rumors of War,“as an indication of official thinking, as a valuable contribution to the growing literature on the FL&, Pelletier’s book deserves consideration. But Hansard wsr_&d perhaps have been more ealightening about the actual crisis.

blew it, Abbie.

n a recent chevron review of “Steal This Book” (by Abbie Hoffman) Pamela Ahrens outlines why she feels that measures such as bombing can only defeat the fight against organised power-the establishment. Her feeling is that “bombing makes people more afraid than ever and therefore more willing to strike out to protect whatever they think is being theatened. This is not the way to reach people.” By “the people” I presume Ahrens means everyone who has some stake in keeping the status quo-the objects of conversion, perhaps of the bombers. Her judgement has merit, but should be expanded. People have a very un. derstandable fear of violence and destruction, for pain and death often result from violent action taken against property’. The theme of “Steal This Book” is survival by theft and other means of getting for or against things free. Arguments respect for the property of others may be left for another-time. However, in the case of bombing, Hoffman states that every effort should be made to direct the bomb against property and not people. He says bombs are to be set off in the middle of the night; watchmen should be notified; warnings phoned in to the police, and other measures ensure that no one is killed. He does not mention whether this is because murder gives the cause a bad reputation, or because real concern is involved. The intentions are good on the surface. But, to quote Pamela Ahrens, “(Good) intentions have always been the excuse for failure.”

I

Belfast failure tragic .

And the failures derground groups

of bombings by unhave been numerous,

tragic and deadly. The most recent failure occurred august 24 in a Belfast office building when a bomb killed one man and seriously injured 35 others. Apparently it was an attempt to destroy only property, the head office of the electricity board. One of the persons responsible for the blast-later explained the incident was’ a “mistake.. .it (the bomb) should have gone off hours before. the workers arrived.” In the spring of 1970 a rash of bombings broke out in New York City, directed mainly at large business corporations. One whole floor of offices occupied by International Telephone and Telegraph was blown apart by a bomb one night, and there were no injuries. My contacts repeatedly explained that since certain corporations were making money from the war in Viet Nam,they were not concerned with people or their opinions. The only way to convince a company like ITT to abandon war profiteering, they said, would be to destroy its property. ITT would see, then, that as long as profits were made by death in Viet Nam they would be wiped out by bombings in New York. That did seem to be an effective and, reasonable tactic. Soon afterward, however,a four-story townhouse in Manhatten was demolished by a tremendous explosion. The building had housed a Weatherman bomb factory. Something had gone wrong and several Weatherpeople were blown to bits. They had less control over the bombs they were making than they claimed. Obviously, an innocent worker could be killed or disfigured as the result of a mistake. Weatherpeople can make fatal technical mistakes because they are far from being explosives experts. In other cases, bombings were technically perfect as to timing

Raids on Arabs, French In 1961 the algerian OAS, a right-wing organization for the preservation of french rule in Algeria conducted terror raids both on Arabs, the native prople trying toassert and on french suptheir independence, porters of de Gaulle, who was steering Algeria to independence. The OAS felt the european community in Algeria was being abandoned to a terrible fate at the hands of the Arabs and believed widespread bombings and grisly murders of influential figures supporting independence would help keep Algeria in european hands. One of their plans was to bomb the apartment of Andre Malraux, the author and minister in de Gaulles’s government. The operation seemed to have been successful. However, the OAS had bombed the wrong apartment. The victim instead was a four-year old girl who was maimed and blinded by the explosion and flying glass. The three instances mentioned above involved what may be termed “innocent mistakes”. Depending on what angle you view the action from, the intentions were “good” but there‘ were fatalities ascribable to human error. Some bombing operations, though, do run perfectly. One such occurred in Jerusalem in 1946. Jewish terrorists, bent on expelling british troops from what was then Palestine, planted a hugh explosive charge in the wing of the King David Hotel which housed british military headquarters. They telephoned two warnings to british officials to have the building cleared of

Capture the watermellon First, the campaign of ill-dressed hippies, yippies, and ‘I assorted hangers-on which was launched to capture the mansion (the federation’s term, not mine) located at 12 wesgate walk (in case you want to talk to the president after hours). President Matthews wanted to know how many people would be arriving so he could help the federation with some planning.. .but it was pointed out that the federation probably wanted to keep him in the dark (element of surprise you understand). .. Saturday was interesting but about four o’clock the inventive minds of the capturers began to run dry. After skipping water fights and of course, that old gourmet standby for a hot afternoon, beer and watermelons, the raiding party began to go home with the . mansion still in the hands of the lord of -Westgate. Speaking of stiff, the engineering raiders did their best with the supplies but the level of decorum was maintained and tbe prestige of Wesgate will live on until the fateful day when it, too, will become a quaint part of the old town, referred to by those with no eloquence, as a slum.

The Westmount golf and country club, located across the street from the Matthews’ residence, was used for the first time in its history as the location for a frisbee demonstration. Although Westgate Walk has seen skipping, never has it seen the peculiar form of what appeared to be hyperventilation and attempted choking as practised by some of the raiders. Since Matthews was smoking his pipe (to calm his jangled nerves no doubt) he was devoid of any opportunity to address the gathering on the evils of various types of combustibles.

Burying utiicameralism Jack Adams of information services said he had seen Carl Sulliman, vice-president of the federation of students wandering around carrying a coffin, and radio Waterloo asked if anyone had been around asking the president for his measurements (not, necessarily,.of the bicep variety which several female frosh have expressed an interest in...the coffin might be used to bury unicameralism, the concept of a single governing body for the university instead of the bicameral system of board of governors and senate ,which now exist). The unicameral issue was permanently quashed in a meeting of the board and senate on thursday the ninth. Although the unicameral issue has been around for two years or so, with much indecision resulting at the bureaucratic level, president Matthews stated that a lot has been accomplished by ad hoc committees...in his words, “There’s been a lot of ad hockery goin’ on around here.” Some of the important changes in the structure of government include voting student representation on the words again, “equal senate and, in the president’s representation for all the sexes.“’ Jack Adams, being a good newsman and always in search of clear, decisive information asked “How many were there at last count?”

AKE ONE university president, representatives of information services of the same university, and representatives of the local press (including the campus media of course) and mix in a comfy office with a smiling secretary fixing the coffee and fluffing the pillows and minding the phone and you can have your own presidential press conference... September the tenth dawned bright and clear. The president sat in his office (modern languages building on the right as you enter, in case you want him for anything) and awaited the press. The importance of the occasion could be discussed here in terms of democracy, responsibility to the public, the right of the taxpayer to know, etc., but digression on these points is seldom considered good reporting... Press conferences are held every two or three weeks and all the media attend and then go away with completely different notes and quotes depending upon the views they entered the meeting with in the first place. Basically, it works like this. You take ‘x’ number of words and combine them in random patterns until the president can be quoted to say almost anything. Some days it’s difficult some days it’s easy.. .but always fun. Last ‘friday several topics were covered, with varying degrees ‘of relevance and varying degrees of clarity.

people, and the officer who recieved the message fled quickly. But he didn’t notify any of the other personnel serving in the hotel, because he did not want the king’s army to appear intimidated in case the bomb threat was a hoax. He saved his own skin, but sacrificed 91 others’ to save face. As usual the innocent died because of a miscalculation on the bombers part. They had counted on the commanding officer’s being a sensible man and he was a fool.

Why not make your own? The four organizations mentioned ranged politically and socially from left-wing middle class students (Weatherman> to ultra right wing thugs and army officers (OAS). They were all capable of bungling, and unfortunately the victims of bombing operations they bungled were usually innocent and uninvolved. Let Abbie Hoffman save his ‘revolutionary’ taTtics for the courtroom and the local A&P. Bombing does not make life better or happier for anyone. And any amateurs who plan to follow Hoffman’s bomb construction methods should take out insurance for loss of limbs, eyesight, and life Professionals know better than to try to make pipe bombs with gunpowder as Hoffman suggests-it’s an incredibly stupid risk. But amateurs do not know, and to counsel them to do so is like introducing them to smack. Their lives are fairly certain to ruined-and Abbie Hoffman should know that. So steal that book if you want to, but don’t put much faith in Abbie. Like Nixon, he’s popular as hell, but diesn’t care much about human lives.

been pushed back to accomodate both sides. To date, nothing has been accomplished and the outcome of that ‘deliberation will be eagerly anticipated by everyone including students. After. all, who wants to haggle for marks with an underpaid professor? The athletic fee question has been decided to some extent with president Matthews agreeing to an increase in the charges for non-student types using the gym facilities and not agreeing to an increase in the student fees until the president’s advisory council task force (whatever that is) completes its study on all fee collections and- budgets other than tuition. The league has been re-structured so the teams won’t have to travel any farther than Windsorsomething that will result in a decrease in expenses for travel.

Constituent

senator elect ions

In further discussion on the decision to retain the two level structure of university government, Matthews said the election of representatives to the senate from the various groups on campus should be carried out by and from the bodies themselves and not from their corporate bodies. In other words, the federation shall not appoint student representatives, nor shall the faculty association appoint people, rather, the student body and the faculty should elect representatives to speak for them. Federation vicepresident, Carl Sulliman, commented, “The interesting thing is that for four years now, people have conceded there ought to be faculty, staff, and students on t.he senate and board., but that’s no longer at dispute. Now it’s the power structure...the powers and duties and responsibilities of the individual bodies. The students are just left on the outside looking in. The senate makes up its mind what it will be content with and the board makes up its mind what the senate ought to be responsible for. Until both of these bodies can get an intelligent overview of the whole situation, the students are going to sit out&de and everything will be left in the committee stage.” Now all of this might not make much sense to you and you can take it under advisement that you are not alone. But you can take it from the president that it is all for the good. He said, “ It makes so much sense, don’t know why we haven’t done it before now.” So sleep well tonight in the full knowledge that although the reins of power are slippery, forward the corporate mule plods.

here can be no relation more strange, more critical, than that between two beings whb know, each other only with their eyes, who meet eye each tiai ly, yes, even hourly, other with a fixed regard, and yet by some whim or freak of convention feel constrained to act like strangers. between them, II neas i ness rules unslaked curiosity, a hysterical desire to give rein to their suppressed impulse to recognize and address each other; even, actually, a sort of strained but tiutual regard. Fore one human being instinctively feels respect and love for another human being SO long as. he does nqt knqw him well- enough to judge hit%; and that he does not, the craving he feels is evidence. by l~h~~~las
