warriors The university of Waterloo warriors football team have been asked by the board of directors of the Ontario university athletic association to represent the Ontario division in the college bowl playdowns semifinals which begin next weekend. The warriors will travel to meet the undefeated Bishops university squad. The situation arose when the Ottawa gee-gees decided as a team to go on strike in support of the general student strike at the french. language university which has being continued since October 16 to protest the invocation of the war measures act one year earlier. The team issued a statement saying “We feel that the university administration and the government of Canada is not taking the student strike seriously and we would like to show that we too cannot stand by saying nothing after the facistic actions taken by our government just one year ago.”

You couldn’t even trade a pail of vomit for a cat Stevens ticket last week. f veryone was there and why not? The only problem was that someone dropped two hits of window pane -LSD in our cameraman’s F stop. Can you dig it?

The administration at Ottawa U has ordered all professors to continue holding classes in spite of the absence of students. -There have been sporadic incidents of violence during the course of the strike with over fifty people being arrested to date. When asked to comment on the effect of the strike a spokesman for the teaching staff said he felt “nothing will be accomplished outside of the proper channels.” He said the sympathy

bad politics has taken a hand in this year’s college bowl”. Ottawa Gee-Gees were picked by some to go all the way to the finals in the nation wide grid championship. The gee-gees tried to contact all other Ontario teams to inform them of the Ottawa team’s position and to ask the other semi-finalists to boycott the competition as well. Queens, McMaster and Western have all agreed tp withdraw. In a frantic morning of phoning the OUAA board of directors found that all Ontario teams except Waterloo had been contacted by the militant gee-gees the previous

Waterloo had already accepted the playoff berth. Carl Totske, athletic department head, is,a member of the OUAA board of directors and was still in Toronto at press time trying to straighted out the confusion and could not be contacted. Burt Matthews, university of Waterloo president, was quick to note “that Waterloo has once again shown itself to be in God’s favour.” “With these miracles, from ‘I don’t know where’ happening’ I wouldn’t be surprised if we went all the way to the championship” noted Dr. Matthews.

When asked why they hadn’t contacted the warriors the Ottawa players association president, Michael Who explained that they had called the Waterloo athletic department but were unable -to reach any department officials who had access to the Waterloo players phone numbers. “The secretary said it was the Annual Tuesday October 26 squash tourney and no one would likely be in before closing time” stated Who. They tried to call back the next ‘morning but were informed that

Burt Matthews: you might know him, as a mild-mannered president of a small metropolitan university, but really he’s just like dad to student council. Once a year Burt brings his fold together and provides for their every needs. At great expense to you and me and the taxpayer Burt throws a dinner for the council of the federation of students. This year’s last supper was held thursday night at the swingingest pad in town. The before dinner boozing was predictably trite and dinner tasted

Contrary to security reports that they couldn’t do it again, the Youth International Party pulled off its first annual second fall social and smoke-in last thursday or friday. Approximately seventy-five of the dopers turned out on the village moor to commune with nature through drug stained minds.

Several co~uncil members disatisfied with the goings on in the living room, took off their clothes and ran amuck through the house. They smoked dope in Burt’s study, smashed all the windows in the bedrooms and set fire to some of Mrs. Matthews’ prize antiques. Doubtless to say. the house was left in quite a state. It has since been reported that someone through the course of the evening took Dr. Mathews degree from its place on the wall and shit on it.

In spain they toured all the right places and that is why their two week tour extended til now.

Bob Mudie, Director of Food Services announced today that due to an over sight in budgeting there was an excess in the Villages account of $300,000 last year. The figure was lower than extimated because of increased surveillance in the Village dining halls. “In the past,” according to Stan Boeckner, “an amazing amount of food has been wasted by Villager who hurry back small snacks for bedtime.” “We also made more bulk purchases than said Boeckner, the anticipated” Village food manager. Village 2 president, John Chilsomore .was appalled at the surplus, “they must have known that they were ahead of their budget. The money could have been spent on im-

proving the quality of the food in the Villages. Instead the money was probably channeled into the new student services building.” Numerous questions have been raised lately as to the nutritional value of the Village food. Bob Mudie scoffed at such reports claiming “the Villagers are as well fed as any average North American Indian”. He labelled as false the suggestion that the loose bowels of many Villagers is connected in any way to a hypothetical dietary deficientcy . Warden Ron Eydt described the alleged bugetary windfall as comical. “Ha, ha” he said in an interview “I’m not that dumb”.

Burton C. Matthews, president of the- university of Waterloo since announced his 1970, WY resignation to an emergency meeting of the senate late last night. Matthews said he had been thinking about the action for some months and initially had thought of proposing his “taking a year off” from administrative responsibilities. But after visiting a farm commune near Peterborough and talking to the members, Matthews became convinced that he should’ join the return to the soil movement. “These They say sities are to living. backs on and look streams.”

young people are right. that cities and univera totally wrong approach People should turn their concrete and buildings to grass, trees and

Matthews said he would not stay on as president until a replacement could be found because he felt that it was important for him to move to his farm which is in an unspecified location on the Otonabee River. “There’s a lot to be done before spring,” Matthew explained. “I encourage any of you,” he said looking at the assembled senators, “to leave the academic life and join me. I would be happy to share my knowledge with you.” There was no immedia,te response from any of the members

Fecferafioa “The federation of students has purchased Australia.” This brief announcement was made this morning by Larry Burko, recently returned from a trip “out west”, reported earlier by this paper to have been a brief vacation. Burko made his announcement in the federaion’s new blue room upon early in the morning “completion of some pretty complex negotiations”. Although Burko would supply no further information immediately, federation president of the week, Rick Page, kept repeating the word, “Shangri-la”, and subsequent investigations by this paper have produced the following details of one of the most important and startling nights in history. At 9:03 am, thursday, the federation dropped it’s present charter and incorporated as an investment firm, immediately sinking cash assets of some 200,000 dollars in three newly formed subcorporations. At 9 : 14 am, the newly formed SHANGRI-LA MEDIA purchased NBC using a chargex card. At 9:30, tickets were completely sold out for NO TOMORROW FUNFEST LTD.‘s rock and roll concert to be held at Ontario place (also purchased on credit). The concert will feature 200 as yet unnamed rock groups Net revenue was reported ‘as close to 20,0oo,o00 dollars...before graft. By 10:00 am, TRICKS AND GAMES INCORPORATED had let contracts for photography, lighting and sound and concert management totalling some 14,000,000 dollars. The funds were used to pay off the first installment on NBC which the federation then sold to the United States government for a repor ted 200 billion dollars.

to the invitation and many appeared quite stunned by the unexpected announcement. The former vice president of the university of Guelph specialized in soil surveys and land use surveys, and he indicated it was time to put some of this knowledge to practical use. But above all, he said, the decision was prompted by a desire to be in closer contact to nature and away from the pressures of administration. Matthews’ wife and teenage sons firmly support the decision, he said. “In fact, my sons were quick to endorse the idea when we began talking about it last summer.” Although the senate was completely surprised by the decision, th\ere were indications that more observant persons had picked up some hints. Matthews’ secretary said she was somewhat surprised at the announcement, but that she had often wondered why he was spending hours in the office reading the “Whole Earth Catalog .” And visitors to Matthews’ large, modern home had reported that the president answered the door wearing overalls and had turned the recreation room into a nursery for seedlings. The senate had no formal response to the resignation but merely accepted it. /

The size of the rotating platform left the works of .art committee kicking themselves when they realized it would never fit in, the new engineering quadrangle.

road travellers will have of the new addition to the campus. A number of committee members registered their disappointment at the location of the recent aquisition “Berth of a nation”, complete with hot and cold running water, located on the math side of the new chemistry addition. The cost of the fountain piece was 4,566 dollars. Physed officials were unavailable for comment on the

removal of two football fields and one softball diamond. Complaints have been raised in the past about the- lack of recreational facilities on campus and this move may move the straw that breaks the camels back. The works of art committee claim responsibility for the ‘“Joy in the morning” sculpture near food services and “Heights of perception” in the humanities building courtyard.

After consulting with physical resources director Bill Lobban it was discovered that the only areas large enough were. the field between math, and physed, and the village moor between student village I and Laurel creek. The Applying to Nixon’s government village moor location was adopted for status as a territory at 10: 15 pm .by default with tenders already released the new federation of being offered for Food Services II Australia from the grips of the 10 to be constructed beside physed to percent US tax levy.

At 11:4O, Burko declaired that announced budget cutbacks. The the Federation of Australia had committee members were not very seceded from the United States unhappy with the new location and that all industry had been because of the excellent view ring nationalized. This 200 billion dollars was then invested in White Rock estates and, by 3 :3O in the afternoon, had grown to 1000,000,000,000 dollars which became, at 10:00 pm, the downpayment on Australia.

Reaction from Washington was immediate. Nixon decried the ugliness of the move. Burko ofUnion fered the Soviet “recreational sites” for ICBM’s. Washington became silent. World investors pressured the Americans to act “in the interest of those countries swindled by this brand of political manhouvering. The United States was reminded of it’s alliances, of it’s friendship pacts. At 11:55, the United States sent Marines to invade Australia. Burko reacted by hiring every Marine-for his newly formed Shangri-la empire. By 3 : 30 am, plane loads of popcorn machines began to arrive in Australia.. . the first indication of what was afoot. At 4 :25, a caravan of boats arrived carrying movie screens, stages, lights, speakers and an assortment of animals, actors, musicians and others.

Recognizing the importance of the new nutrition guide released by the National Food and Drug Administration, the athletic department has come to the aid of their supporters. The ever-smiling kampus security system has outfitted itself with a warehouse of milk to give students attending athletic events. One official of that department “This drink keeps our noted, people growing strong and upright, and we want to share this discovery with students”. Positioning themselves outside the entrance to football,hockey and basketball events, they execute the well-practiced routine. A Becker’s caravan is situated close by with the nutritious beverage. As supporters troop through the gates they are subsequently liquor searched and any discovered is promptly replaced with a container of milk. The doling is done on a simple sliding scale: one quart of milk for a 26 oz. bottle of liquor, one pint in exchange for a ‘mickey’ and a bottle of beer is only worth a halfpint cardboard container. Students are reacting favourably to the new system and approach the gates with arms raised and greedy smiles. When asked why she alway waited back in. the line, first year arts student Lynda Moxinie admitted, “It’s one of those thrills I can always count on,...besides by the time the feeler has gone through a few hundred people, you can alway expect warm hands.” She also gigglingly admitted to sneaking out and entering through another gate on occasion.

The official statistics have shown a large increase in the number of female spectators since the introduction of the new plan. The male lib group on campus is drafting a petition for equal feeling time with no regard to sex. Willie Bonee, of the campus center, approached the gates with a few ounces of marijuana and sent the kops into a long discussion on it’s milk value. Their * decision was not announced, but Willie was seen driving away from the stadium parking lot in a half-full beckers milk truck.


Recent events at the campus center, such as the near-collapse of order and stabiiity caused by Rick Page’s threatened resignation, have made it abundantly clear that something must be done, and soon, to correct the dangerous spiral towards chaos that threatens to engulf the campus center. We now know that: 0 Students, left to govern themselves, become merely self-seeking, and develop oversized egos when put into positions of power. This is in sharp contrast to the way that your professors, for example, conduct their affairs, with dignity, restraint, and a careful concern for the taxpaying public. l Some persons are using the campus centre for other than scholarly pursuits. Indeed, there are reports that the place is being used to shoot marajuhana. This, again, is in sharp contrast to the faculty club where, at any given time, intelligent conversation is being made about ::he loftiest and abstruse ideas, ideas that this mighty age, and your professors, have given birth to. If the reader doubts this point, he need only ask himself when he last heard a student in the campus centre discuss the concept of “Tenure”, or the mathematical puzzle presented by “The relationship of the BIU increase to’the increase in the salary floor.” #The campus center was originally intended to be used by both faculty and students (in that order), but the students took it over and kept the faculty out. This is clearly unfair, since the professors pay taxes, and students do not. *Space, other than the campus center, for students is currently in oversupply with many student areas, such as the foyer of the arts lecture building, being nearly deserted at certain times of day. The faculty club, on the other hand, is almost constantly humming with scholarly life. In the light of this I have a proposal to make, a proposal that I hope the administration and faculty will adopt: I propose that, (with the exception -of chevron staff), students, and other forms of unrefined humanity be barred from the campus center, which would then be turned over to the exclusive use of the Faculty and administration. It might then be renamed “The center for continuing studies in higher education”, and get a liquor permit. Students need not be greatly inconvenienced: If extra space for get-togethers and conversation should be required, it could easily enough be provided by keeping swept of snow the ampitheatre on top of the submarine. With transistor radios for music, and sleeping bags for warmth, this could be a very cozy and intimate meeting place. Altogether a fair and equitable idea, I think, and one I hope the administration will order the federation of students to adopt. Dr. K. Fogbottom, Ph. D., Chairman, Committee on the allocation

In his cdurtships of the Soviet Union, Chin&, and the european common market, Trudeau -is finding ready markets for Canadian produce. And using the new american economic polic,ies as a timely political lever, he is gradually intensifying the diplomatic flirtations. New markets and new trade agreements will not make Canada economically independent. But they will set up a more reasonable and less restricted supply-anddemand framework in which Canada can more freely on the inmanouevre ternational economic front. If these new trade partnerships work out, it will probably mean an independent ( ,lljit,llist society for Canada, given time, ~,~thcr than a dependent one.

iOddy.

This year exports to China could reach 200 million dollars, a 40 percent increase over 1970, with Canadian textile goods supplementing the massive wheat trade. And since China will not import american manilfactured goods, this trend toward industrial trade will be a shot in the arm to Canadian-owned business. of aThere is a growing awareness position (and Canada’s economic officials in the vulnerability) among european economic community (EEC). In part the past Canada has been considered (~1 ilIt t~orth om<lrican market accessible recent through Washington, but the american surcharge has delineated quite clearly the difference betyeen Canadian and american markets. ’ The president of the EEC, France Maria senior Malfatti, visited Trudeau and recently to discuss cabinet officials methods of protesting the Nixon measures. At this meeting (ignored by the daily press) the possibility of a non-preferential economic agreement between Canada and the ttC was considered. @The Kosygin visit to Canada was also well-timed within the economic crisis. Kosygin said publicly that soviet-Canadian trade will increase and prosper and indirectly attacked U.S. economic policies, while Trudeau forsees a new relationship with the USSR “as friendly as Canada has traditionally had with the U.S.”

The Soviets are interested in exchanges of technological information and in \l~‘~rl)ly In(.rclasing trade in textiles and machinery. Canada now exports about 120 million dollars of goods a year to the Soviet Union, again mostly wheat while 11111)orting tin *1970) only 8 million dollars.

This reduction in the influx of american capital, according to the international organization for economic co-operation and development, is an indicator that Canada is ready to stand on her own feet as an independent capitalist country. The second reason for the Canadian / search for new markets is the american import surtax, If the surtax were to last for a year (with present trade agreements), as U.S. treasury secretary John Connally has indicated it will, about 150 Canadian businesses would fold, forcing the loss of 90,000 jobs.

‘THE

NEW TRADE agreements’ being formed so hastily in the wake of Nixon’.s economic policies, coupled with the admission of China to the United Nations, could mean a realignment of global economic power. This realignment ,i$ to Canada’s advantage, but why has it come about with such undiplomatic speed?

I

First, Canada is finally substituting its own domestic capital for foreign capital in Canadian industry. The movement of longterm american capital into Canada (which has averaged about 3.6 billion dollars a year in recent years) dropped from 4.8 billion in 1969 to only 1.2 billion dollars in 1970.

Rather than risk more unemployment (at a time when Canadian unemployment is at its worst in ten years) the government is finding new markets to maintain the country’s pace of . production and employment. There is no doubt that the biggest winner is going to be industry. But for a change, it’s going to be Canadian industry and not american-controlled industry that is going to benefit by the addition of more foreign markets. ,I-he United States, long Canada’s ‘major trading partner, is going to lose. And it will lose, ironically, because of its own recent’ economic policies which started the international trade snowball.

While international markets may change. the domestic system of production shows no sign of doing. likewise. After all, it is native Canadian capitalists that the government’s new policy is designed to help, and it is because of the hardships they are now facing that it is seeking new market places. What steps has Canada taken?/ Consider these examples: oChina is providing Canada with an advance list of its import requirements for I(JIL 1111s list ~‘111 ~irrive in Ottawa in december, and will include for the first time a request for manufactured goods.

Playing in a full pool of water the greatest inner tube water polo team on earth, the Chevron Waterbabies, won a decisive victory Wednesday evening. Taking to the water at 7:36.50 after shouting obscenities at all opponents, the waterbabies quickly drew first blood as one of the fantastic group-of-seven fired home a sizzling under-the-armpitscoop-drop-shot which bent the upper right twine. There is half a chance the goal scorer was our left furmert Scoop Dennis McGann. Let’s hear it for scoop. On the other hand it may nave been our center gouger, Scoop Nigel Burnett.

No one could handle the ferocious and feral, feline waterbabies as goal number two was slammed in by pit-scoop Randy Hannigan.

Taking a short bus ride to the_ opponents campus last Wednesday, the powerful warriors won both their games convincingly with 140 and 9-O scores. In the opening game, ‘dirty’ Jack Sterken again dominated the scoring by plotting a big five for the uniwat squad. ‘Trickey’ Zack Bachert also proved his worth by getting another five. With a 10-O lead at the quarter, the warriors eased off and played a more defensive game allowing the gryphons to gain control of the ball on the odd occasion. It was of no use, however, as few shots came towards Gilles and Dahlke who were alternating the goal position for the warriors.

Doug Lorriman proved he still can pot the shots getting another while Kirkland drove in the final Warriors marker in the last frame. Mike McMillan and Lorriman were the stars on defense while our goaltending again proved its worth. The Warriors have now outscored their opponents 41 to 8 over the last five games. Following the games Gryphon’s Coach Bob Stallman said “I think you have a good team this year.” Coach Norm McKee humbly replied “the boys played O.K.”

The ball, thrown from twenty feet out made a slow arch hitting both goal posts, one grouch, three opponent furds and their guppie goalie before crashing home. Let’s hear it for Scooper. \ ,

The drizzling rain of the first half increased it’s volume during the second, but failed to unnerve the Waterloo women. Acclimatized by the early morning dew during practice, the athenas blanked the gryphonettes 4-O. Toos Simons, who has been one of the top scorers all season, collected two goals in last friday’s game and demonstrated a solid agressive effort on the forward line. Marilyn Woods and Pat Binnersley exhibited strong efforts

On Saturday, the Waterloo squad challenged the macmaster team (who they had never defeated), but Woods and Nora Bahry placed two shots past the mat goaltender to allow a 2-1 edge for the athenas. Woods again proved effective around the net in the third contest of the weekend as she scored the lone goal of a 1-O athena win over the western. The athenas now represent the only real threat from their division and will enter the finals this weekend in london with a decided psychological advantage.

and successful female athlete are almost incompatible in the United States. The woman who wishes to participate in sports and memain “womanly” faces great stress. By choosing sport ;he usually places herself outside the social mainstream. Today’s new movements offer little support. What does vomen’s lib have to say about freeing the woman athlete? Vat much. If woman is to be more than mother, secretary md miss America, we reward her for sports achievement nstead of stigmatizing her for it. But the struggle focuses on other areas, sueh as dance. ‘Dance is a field for women, and male homosexuals,” ;aid Women: A Journal of Liberation, which described lance as one of the few ways to escape “Amerika’s sick sexuality.” And we seem to see sport as a field for men, md female homosexuals. Certainly, for a woman, sport intensifies sex-role lroblems. In most other parts of the Western world women coexist with men in sport as accepted and -espected partners. Not in the United States. A female athlete meets more oppression than most other women in ;he American way of life.

T

he roles of woman

l

ck < us

Social norms Being female in this culture does not necessarily mean that one is perceived or accepted as feminine. Every culture ha&its social norms and sex roles. In the United States these seem to be especially rigid and narrow; women in sport do not fit our particular concept of femininity and those who persist in sport suffer for it. Why has it been so difficult for women to remain “womanly” and yet be athletes, especially in games that require great physical skill? Games of physical skill are mostly associated with achievement and aggressiveness, which seem to make them the exclusive province of males. Women are more traditionally associated with obedience training and routine responsibility training and / with games of strategy and games of chance. Conditioning begins early-elementary school a girl Eeels pressure to select some games and avoid others if she is to be a “real” girl. If she is told often enough at 11 or 12 that sports are not ladylike, she may at that point make a choice between being a lady and being an athlete. This forced choice may create deep conflict that persists into adulthood. Sport is male territory; therefore participation of female intruders is a peripheral, noncentral aspect of sport. The sexually separate (and unequal) facilities and organizations in sport in the United States illustrate the subordination of women athletes. As a girl becomes more and more proficient in sport, her level of personal investment increases and the long hours of practice and limited associations may isolate her socially. Personal conflict and stress increase as it becomes necessary for her to convince others of her femininity This tension and conflict may increase still more if a girl chooses a sport that most regard as exclusive male territory. Chi Cheng, a student at California State Polytechnic College at Pomona who holds several world track records far women, was quoted as saying, “The public sees women competing and immediately thinks they must be manly-but at night, we’re just like other women:” Why would a woman need to comment about herself in this way and how does this awareness of stigma affect her daily life? For Chi Cheng, one solution is “to give a lot of public appearances -where I can show off my femininity.”

Hair hassle Numerous discussions with college groups over the past few years have convinced me that our society imposes a great burden on women who commit themselves to sport, as participants or as teachers. Several married women students majoring in physical education confided at one discussion group that they had wanted to cut their hair but felt they couldn’t: they simply didn’t want the stereotyped image. Even when general hair styles are short, women in sport are judged by a standard other than fashion. And if the marriedwoman experiences anxiety over such things, one can imagine the struggle of the single woman. When young women do egjoy sport, what activities are really open to them? In a 1963 study, 200 first- and secondyear college women from four Southern California schools strongly recommended that girls not participate in track and field activities. The sports they did recommend were tennis, swimming, ice skating, diving, bowling, skiing and golf, all of which have esthetic social and fashion aspects. Physical strength and skill may be components of some but are not their primary identifications. In startling contrast is the black woman athlete. In the black community, it seems, a woman can be strong and competent in sport and still not deny her womanliness. She can even win respect and status; Wilma Rudolph is an example. .

Tom boys are Sport standards

male and the woman in sport is compared with men-not with other women. It starts early: Wow, what a beautiful throw. You’ve got an arm

like a guy. Look at that girl run; she could beat lots of boys. Father comments, Yes, she loves sports. She’s our ,little tomboy.

When the girl has the message clearly she loses games to#a boy on purpose. She knows that she may .win the game and lose the boy. is our little marygirl.

Sex tests

Male performance standards and the attending social behavior have resulted in even more serious problems. In international sports events a woman must now pass a sex test of cells collected from inside of the cheek. In a normal woman, about 20 cells in every hundred contain Barr bodies (collections of chromatins). At the 1968 Olympic games, women whose tests showed Barr bodies in fewer than 10 cells in every hundred were barred from competition. Marion Lay, a Canadian swimmer said that at those Olympics a long line of women awaiting the test in Mexico erupted in reactions that ranged from tension-releasing jokes to severe stress and upset. Some athletes suggested that if the doctor were goodlooking enough, one might skip the test and prove her femininity by seducing, him. Many were baffled, feeling that their honesty was in question along with their femininity . There is also the problem of the use by some women performers of “steroid” drugs, male sex-hormone derivatives that tend to increase muscle size. There have been strong and continued warnings against the use of steroids by men because of their dangerous effects, but little has been published about the negative I effects of male steroids on women. They are known to increase muscle size, to change fat distribution and also to produce secondary male characteristics such as inb &eased face and body hair and lowered voice. , Why would a woman take such a drug? Because the values are on male records and performance and she will attempt to come as close to this goal as possible. Social attitudes that limit sport choices for women have a long history. Here’s an editorial from a 1912 issue of Outing

Magazine:

“Other things being equal, the man who has had the most experience in outdoor sports should be the best aviator. By the same token, women sould be barred...Women have not the background of games of strength and skill that most men have.-Theirpowers of correlation are correspondingly limited and their ability to cope with sudden emergency is inadequate.” In 1936 the editor of Sportsman, a magazine for the wealthy, commented of the Olympic Games that he was “... fed up to the ears with women as track and field competitors.” He continued, “a woman’s charms shrink to something less than zero” and urged the organizers to “keep them where they were competent. As swimmers and divers; girls are as beautiful and adroit as they are ineffective and unpleasing on the track.” More recent publications such as Sports Illustrated have not been as openly negative; but they sustain sexual bias by limiting their coverage of women in sport. The emphasis in periodicals is still largely on women as attractive objects rather than as skilled and effective athletes.

Muscle myth Operating alongside sex bias to scare girls from sport have been such misunderstandings as the muscle myththe fear that athletics will produce bulging muscles which imply masculinity. The fact, well documented by the exercise physiologists, Carl E 0 Klafs and Daniel D. Arnheim, is that “excessive development (muscle) is not a concomitant of athletic competition.” They further report: “Contrary to lay opinion, participation in sports does not masculinize women.. . .” Sdme girl and women athletes are indeed muscular. Klafs and Arnheim explain: “Girls whose physiques reflect considerable masculinity are stronger per unit of weight than girls who are low in masculinity and boys who display considerable femininity of build. Those who are of masculine type often do enter sports and are usually quite successful because of the mechanical advantages possessed by ‘the masculine structure. However, such types are the exception, and by far the greater majority of particifiants possess a feminine body build. ’ ’

Research Myths die hard, but they do die. Today, gradually, women have begun to enter sport with more social acceptance and individual pride. In 1952, researchers from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health who conducted an intensive study of the athletes participating in the Olympics in Helsinki predieted that “women are able to shake off civic disabilities which millennia of prejudice and ignorance have imposed upon them.” The researchers found that the participation of women in sport was a significant indicator of the health and living standards of a country. Simone de Beauvoir wrote in The Secand Sex “...In sports the end in view is not success independent of physical equipment; it is rather the attainment of perfection within the limitations of each physical type; the featherweight boxing champion is as much of a champion as is the heavyweight; the woman skiing champion is not inferior of the faster male champion ; they belong to two different classes. It is precisely the female athletes who, being positively interested in their own game, feel themselves least handicapped in comparison with the male.” Americans seem to be still unable to apply to the woman in sport this view of “attainment of perfection within the limitations of each.” The experiencing of one’s body in sport must not be denied to anyone in the name of an earlier century’s image of femininity-a binding, limiting, belittling image. This is the age of the woman in space, and she demands her female- space and identity in sport.

speed The 1971-72 athenas have been selected and coach Sally Kemp says that she is pleased with the team. “The main thing we are lacking is height”, but she feels that the teams’ speed plus the number of experienced players under the boards will cover this deficiency . ’ The 1971-72 versions includes ten returnees from last years squad plus four good rookies. The naming of the fourteen players is expected to help overcome some of the difficulties created due to students being on work term and therefore unable to make all the away games. The starting line-up will include Patti Bland, 5 feet seven inches forward from ingersoll Ontario, playing with the athenas for her fourth season. Named last year’s M.V.P. Patti lead the team @ scoring and was always a strong defensive player. She has been held back from practice for the past two weeks due to a swollen achilles tendon, but trainer Pat Bishop says that this is gradually getting better and hopes that she will be ready next week. Sue Murphy, a 5 foot 7 inch forward from toronto will be starting her third season with the athenas and is expected to keep up her ever-improved performances of last year. Backing up these two are Yonna Luypaert and Marlene Grolman, both who had excellent rookie seasons. Yonna will be remembered for her excellent jumping ability and again is expected to be the top rebounder. Maryanne Krzyzanowski at feet 8 inches will be the mainstay in the centre position. friciay

year saw Maryanne conimprove to the point where a reliable and aggresive a strong rebounder and a definite scoring threat.

Backing up Maryanne in this position are three other very capable centers. Jane Liddell is a third year veteran from Walkerton who is noted for some amazing offensive play in the key area. Toos Simons is a strong offensive and defensive player and who also has the ability to fill in any named position on the floor. Joan Parker is a 5 foot 7 inch center from Ottawa who. has gained invaluable experience playing for the Ottawa city league team. This rookie has a good deal of potential, she will be the one to watch over the season. The guard spots are filled with four reliable ball. handlers. Returning for her fifth season is Jan Meyer, a strong ball handler who has the ability to lead the team on the court. DoublingwithJan will be Loretta Mckenzie, another product of the St. Leo’s team. She has excellent ball handling ability and the speed to capitalize on the driving lay-up. Suzy Killough and Gail Macpherson will provide the back-up strength for these two, along with the strong outside shooting that will no doubt be necessary throughout the season. Two rookies to keep an eye on are Sherry Bandy a 5 foot 6 inch forward from Gravenhurst and Bev Oliver a 5 foot 7 inch forward from Norwood. These two have all the moves but just need a little time to gain experience. The team is busy preparing for the pre-season tournament in, Ottawa next weekend where the athena’s will meet york at 9: 00 pm. Friday. -29 October

Briefly it states that incredibly enough, the ritual was taken seriously until 1970. ’ That the pledge tells you only to ‘try’ to do a whole bunch of moral things, therefore, is largely ignored. The article goes on to say that the ceremony is embarassingly childish. And professionals because they serve industry (aside: this argument can be neatly sidestepped by claiming that engineers are prostitutes, and thus in turn true professionals).

School is a dream Here you are at the U of W, saying ‘engineering sure is tough but it’s kinda fun; what have I got to bitch about?’ Keep in mind that this is a liberal engineering school, the best in Canada. It’s.about as gobd as you can get without really .tundamental changes (which is pretty amazing when you conslderm that most of the faculty only teach as a sideline). However don’t let school fool you. It’s the work terms that you should pay attention to. School is a dream; work is the real thing. At U of W, then, it is the co-ordination department that should be most important to you. It’s they that represent what engineering is all about (it’s ironic that they are the ones that screw you’ most). They’ll tell you abour your alternatives; they will be largely like the ones I’ve mentioned. But don’t believe them. Don’t expect them to tell you about reality because if they (or for that matter, your profs) told you the truth they could no longer justify their own positions. Not to mention that most of them really believe it. You see they are teaching you about the way it was, not the way it is. Therefore, when making decisions about ‘the *rest of your life (a questionable practise in the first place) keep *in mind that school is largely irrelevent to it.

The thesis here is that we are--alienated from females, thus we automatically objectify them. (Get a dictionary and find out what ‘objectify’ means, it’s important). Perhaps‘ we must objectify them merely to keep.our sanity. , Although this is the middle of the article it is the last section I’m writing. I’ve grown tired of this structure horse-shit. So you’re going to get my thots the way I thot them: Actually, you should take arts courses if for no other reason than to see that some boys have tits. Some profs have tits too. You tend to forget that in engineering, females can be your superior. A for-real quote from a for-real girl: “I find engineers dull.” If they don’t believe’ the ‘engineering mystique, why should you? The engineering school monastary tradition makes it hardest on the average guy (this is an anti-pun). It brings on latent homosexuality. Women’s.li b is&put idown ,hardestb by men that are not secure about their own sexuality. Women’s lib draws most of its male support from men who are not having their masculinity challenged by it. Therefore, plumbers are generally down on women’s lib. The same applies to gay Ii b. Why do so few people catch on to this shit? Because our course makes us work our asses off. We worry so much about the immediate problem of getting our work done that we don’t consider the fundament.al quejtions such as, what are we doing here? For example, why are the radicals (in any course) the bright kids instead of the pluggers? Because they are not afraid of failing; they havetime to think about it. Not to mention that they can understand the social stuff better than you can. (see Stu Henderson’s feedback letter in the Chevron, 12 February, 71.)

The reason your superiors cultivate the mystiique is because they need highly commited associates. If you should be so fortunate as to fall into their favor, your career will likely go something like this: after about three years ans an engineer, the personnel guy will tell you that there is a mdnggemant position open if you want it. If you refuse, he wil wait maybe a year and ask you again. If you refuse this time, you will be stuck in a corner or gently phased out. If you accept the position, here are some of the charateristics they will expect you to show (R.L. Kahn, 1964): high drive and achievement needs, strong mobility drives. and a need .to advance, apprehension and a fear of failing, identification with superiors and detachment from subordinates. Generally, an executive must be completely immersed in his work. He will a,lso havestrongfamily and community ties, ergo there is a strong conflict. This is the tension that causes most executive breakdowns (however don’t convince yourself that engineers are martyrs who get their minds destroyed so the is more stress and poor don’t have to. There subsequently lower mental health among the poor than among the middle calsses (see Christopher Alexander, 1967, for example). Is management a gaod job? You can be discharged without notice or reason;you are transfered capriciously; you must reject all non-company interests, and you are humiliated by your superiors. You’d have to be crazy to do that for the rest of your life.

Technology all bad? I’m of the opinion that technology isn’t all bad. However, your alternatives to ‘straight’ engineering may depend -entirely on whether or not you agree with me. Some people are so bummed-out by technology that they must pack-it-in altogether. In finding alternatives, the most important thing to realize is that if you do a little looking around, and if you don’t plan your life too much (thereby missing or not even noticing unexpected opportunities), there are a lot of really nice things to do for the rest of your life, or less. Anyway, you’ll have to figure-out your own alternatives but here are some examples. You can: @become a Nader’sraider lsteach (not necesaryily in a school) edo nothing (for no more than a year oi so else your brain begins to rot). @do grad work but pretend you’re on welfare. +if you’re a speed freak, do what you’ve always subconsiously wanted to do, like be golf-pro or a harpist. #if you’re very fortunate, become the technical type in a commune. Or something. aif you’re God, go into management, -strive for the top, become at the age of 50 president of a company, and bring the mother-fucker down.

I have two endings: /f you don’t believe (understand) this article, then the worst that can happen to you is that your dream wi// come true. /f you don’t believe (understand) this article, I wish YOU luck in your new career. May your gastric juices digest you from the inside, as your compatriots digest you from the outside, culminating in the true salvation of non-existence.

It’s not written for all-of you. Some of you have reached or passed the stage of already de.velopment I am talking about-you will know who you are. This article does not apply to you. But most of you are no place near that level (you are Reich’s consciousness II). You’ll know it’s you I’m talking to. However, you may not. But you’lt be wrong.

Engineering profession My

basic

thesis

is that

engineering

is a fun-

damentally corrupt and immora/ profession. Engineering is basically a capitalist’s profession, and I’m down on it in principle. Capitalism-this isn’t jargon, it’s an accurate is a pretty complicated political economic word,system and to give a complete argumeut against would require a good sized book, so I’ll just give you two ways of looking at it that you’ve probably never thot -of before: First. Once upon a time capitalism was an excellent way to run society. However our society has evolved to a stage for which capitalism is no In fact it’s slowing us down. longer necessary. From an industrial engineering standpoint (I used to be an industrial engineer), money is simply a’ system of measurement. It allows us to things like time, competence, raw compare materials, etc, on the same level. However you have to be careful when you use it. Frinstance, in a recent expressway study in into Chicago all parameters were translated dollars. The expressway ran most cost-effectively with a maximum number of fatalities.

As our society becomes more complex, money becomes a more unwieldy system of measurement. llntil now the things it couldn’t measure were considered pretty unimportant. Like damage to the environment (capitalists have used this to ‘their advantage), quality of life, happiness; in other words: almost every thing consciousness 111 people Ii ke. Second. Most of your arguments in f&our of capitalism are based on a. simple market economy; Iaisser-faire, free-competition shit. That just doen’t exist now. Upper managements are all linked together; they work together (see last months Ramparts article about Lockheed). They realize they can get ‘more’ that way, and can make deals to keep prices stable-high. What you’re against is socialism; what they got is socialism, only with serfs, namely us. The stuff written above is reasonably correct. If you don’t agree, it’s not because it’s wrong; it’s because you don’t understand it. L Yet.

You can get a job a? the university as a oteacher: not a bad job but you need some practical experience (that’s reasonable enough ) in industry, or in oresearch: they say that almost aIt of it is irrelevant. It really is. Ask your profs (or better yet their grad students (because they have less to lose, like me for example) how their stuff ties in to to reality. You’ll find their reasons hazy. So, there are probably other reasons. It’s pretty simple; they do research to find more research to do to keep themselves in a job. A lot of research really is interesting problemsorbing stuff. But dori’t kid yourself into believing that we’ll have a better world because of it (there are a couple of counter-examples; but you can shoot any of them down. Try it; it’sla good mind-game.).

Doing it to your mind Engineering develops specific traits in your minds. It must do this or else the source of new engineers would have long since dried up. I can easily think of three means they uSe to give us this personality (I’ll deal with them in more detail later): ?/They get us strongly committed to a very middle-class standard of values. 2/ They develop a fraternity, an engineering mystique. It convinces us that these antisocial characteristics we develop, are normal. 3/The university, instead of broadening, in fact, closes our minds. I’ll list a few of these character traits just to give you an idea of what a fucked up system of values

The Cat comes to the barn My week preceding the Cat Stevens concert had indeed been a grim one, full of little heartbreakers conducive to the onset of madness.

Needless to say, my hopes were high far a fine evening of music-I needed Cat that night. Waiting for the” jock building doors to open, standing in an en‘dless line: this offered too much to a do.

Marty’s cut was 90 percent of the gate. True, he had to pay Cat (probably around $7,500) and take care of a few other items a fledgling Ed Sullivan has to contend with; however, my objectivity forces me to say that 3,000 tickets at $1.50 per and 3,000 at $3.00, equals just enough to feed your pet godzilla for a day or so.)

The Cat I saw in June at Massey Hall came on with a shy, Idon’twant-to-be-a-star rap. He primarily stuck to the music we all knew. The Waterloo Cat had changed. He had confidence. Enough to set aside that particular rap. Also, he introduced new music from Teaser, and the Firecat, and did so without fear or apology. The June concert was in a comfortable . setting, with reasonable acoustics, and was played to a small, knowledgeable, and well-cared-for crowd. These things tell me that I enjoyed that concert more than Thursday’s. But I’m impressedthe obstacles he overcame ! Six thousand souls who had been treated shitty, full of nervous with no reason to be energy, pleased with less than the best. A stiff proposition, even for a starcat. I’ve praised the audience for its patience under head-press conditions, (far out, no riots.) Now I’ll shit on some of them for awhile.

succeeds in conveying much of what it was like to come of age in the Foolish ~O’Sone of your reviewer’s severer social handicaps-when Uncle Ike was in the White House, student revolutionaries were in Latin America, and the Queen of the Hop wore knee socks, not to mention a bra. All -of these are touched upon in an effective opening montage from which short hair and wellemerge as scrubbed faces dominant motifs. Ah, nostalgia. The most absorbing scenes in this rather uneven film are those which pit the protagonist, Gnossos Pappadapoulis, against some of the period’s characteristic social rituals, including a hilarious encounter with a Super-WASP I fraternity. Gnossos is a sort of lateBeat, early-Hippie character about ten years ahead of his time, a pot smoking, free loving misfit in a beer drinking, gangbanging society, and BDSL exploits many of the comic possibilities of this situation. The film begins to flounder, however, about a third of the way through, when Gnossos’ friend Calvin (an art instructor whose home is a museum of the beads and flowers trip) takes him on a hallucinogenic voyage. Gnossos finds only fear and trembling, symbolized by a “monkey demon” which pursues him intermittiently throughout the remainder of Br)SL’.- This sequence, as well as the monkey’s later manifestations, seems to have been inserted as a “Don’t do acid, kid” public service announcement ; in Farina’s novel, this episode served only to emphasize that Gnossos is as estranged from trying-so-hard-to-behip academics as he is from the square world, and was not freighted with a load of significance. The subsequent entry of the “iove interest,” Kristin (nicely played by Linda DeCoff), is a further indication that things are going to get serious. This is the central relationship of the novel: Kristin is an intelligent, attractive, middle-class woman with whom Gnossos contemplates marriage and the straight life, and is his final flirtation with the American -Dream. The film fails, however, to establish Gnossos’ increasing dependence on Kristin (in terms of being fed and living in a

reasonably sanitary horn& which renders their final break merely a case of female bitchiness-Kristin lies about her virginity and gives hin the clap-rather than a parable of Gnossos’ resistance to ideological seduction. d I’m not all that concerned with Director Jeff Young’s failure to stay close to the novel-Farina didn’t write a modern classic which requires respectful and literal translation-but I am upset by the seeming inability of our current crop of filmmakers to make movies which deal with emotionally consistent characters, with people whose joys and tribulations are manifestations of a complex human personality. The formula seems to be a little comedy, a little tragedy, and some nice scenery for the illiterates, and Young is by no means the worst offender: Kramer’s Bless the ,Beasts and Children is a much

This is all the more disappointing in view of Young’s technical competence, as BDSL is never less than visually in,teresting. When Young is in control of the film, ,especially during the first 15 or 20 minutes (and only occasionally thereafter), it becomes a very sharp and. humorous satire on the clash of contemporary lifestyles, and in a sense BDSL ultimately defeats itself by arousing expectations it cannot satisfy. Still, it’s one of the better “Now Movies,” and I guess my final verdict is that I was entertained, but not moved; I was hoping for more, but that’s my hang-up. By the way: please feel free to send in your comments, fan letters, and hate ‘mait; there’s no reason why we should be talking to you rather than with you.

The Art of l?evohtion Castro’s Cuba: Dugald Stermer, 1971, $9.50.

19511970, McGraw-Hill,

by

Posters, as a unique art medium, have really only come into their own during the later part of the twentieth century ; their current vogue throughout North America is so total that this status,. as an art. form, may be placed in question. ’ More so than any other medium, poster art is anchored in processes and directives external to itself and to the artist; in capitalist society this form is so rooted in the advertising and money incentive as to be virtually hamstrung by them. Warhol and Peter Max notwithstanding, little creative work is to be seen (given saturation) even in regard to the ever-happening, ever-present, ‘public’ rock concert; broadly speaking, posters related to the arts are either pedestrian, employing simplicity as an art replacement, or, as with movies, appeal in stereotypic imagery-and cliche to fears, phantasies or perversions in their audience.

Sophistication Given technical sophistication, poster art is within easy reach of any person or group today; thus there is a tendency for the art to be reduced to the selective lifting of graphics backed with a technical knowhow capable of choosing effective type sizes,_ colours and stocks. This process essentially collages ‘secondary sources’ to produce the graphic equivalent of a student essay (saris credits). These deficiencies are replaced by worries of a new order in a country like Cuba; struggling for survival, a process requiring the repeated mobilization of a good many people, by default the poster. as the achieves prominence ~vehicle between the needs of the government and the energy of the , people. In theory this would seem to encourage strictures on the artist as debilitating as those binding him to the profit motive in our society. Caught between an om-

nipotent, if benevolent government with its ideological demands, and his own need to express himself, the artist would seem to be whollycontained.

Art dropsout This case can certainly be made concerning Russia, the so-called social whole dictating to its part so completely, so dictatorially, that art drops out. Reduced by Stalin to functionalism informed only by bureaucratic phantasy, the work situation in its complexity was not simply exhorted to change by poster art, it was’ positively superseded without regard to actual fact. Starvation, monotony and overwork were overlooked by an imagery stolen from the birth of the revolution (then legitimate), positively obscuring realityby distorting an imagery initially based on reality. The huge labour giant with bulging arms and boyish glance rang false against the reality of work camps. China today utilizes the poster as much as do Canada or the U.S. Unfortunately the needs of China, economically and nationally, are so stark and immediate as to leave little room between the message and the artist; further, the role of the individual in art has been practically abolished. Art is collective in China. Beyond arguing the validity of that move, it is fair to say, following Dugald Stermer, that Chinese art lacks one essential feature-that of duration. It is against this background that Stermer’s collection of Cuban posters actually come to life; suffering all the impediments of non-industrial nationhood, the revolutionaries have still managed to preserve a certain distance, a space, between the artist and the ‘socially necessary’ content.

Broadly eclectic The Cuban ‘style”of poster art is broadly eclectic, using forms from any area of the world but never Simply COpyillg Or lifting; Max and

Warhol’s influence are evident in spots, as is psychedelia and Picasso, yet altered, transformed. Even posters produced by OSPAAAC and COR, Cuba’s propaganda agencies, are uniquely individual, integrating graphics and message in a most effective fashion. “The stylistic excesses of the ‘heroic worker’ school” are few and far between, posters being inventive rather than stereotypic. Encouragement of personality posters, so popular in China, is also downplayed. somewhat; while there are a spate of commemoratives to the heros of Moncada and the Sierra Maistre, Fidel has limited the possibility of a visual cult of personality.

Relevence The national agencies responsible for posters for theatre, art, film books and special events have produced the most exciting work; this art is. striking and sensitive while remaining socially and *culturally relevant. In this capacity at least, Cuba has far exceeded the order of propaganda informing the Canadian public of similar events. Posters pertaining to drama and film are not merely catchy or argumentative-they infuse the coming event with life.

As Susan Sontag warns however, there is a rather dulling aspect to all of this; the excitement of this enlivened poster art is somewhat subdued by the manner of its presentation in Canada-what was public in Cuba has been displaced in our society and transformed into an object for private consumption, if you have the money.

The play involves an evening encounter between two sick people, a man with a speech impediment and a woman suffering nervous fatigue. Apparently the man visits the woman at her home regularly, and each has become quite dependent on the other’s company.

She ‘can’t imagine tomorrow’ because she no longer cares enough to do so. The sense of human ineffee tualness was developed and stressed in different, subtle ways. One way was to make the effort of climbing a staircase a major eff’ort. Another was their desperate reliance on writing ‘the first thing that comes into your head’. Although the pantomimed gestures-pulling back the. window curtains, knocking on the doorthis too, they made the characters seem comically elfin right at the point they are reaching out to each other.

Pat Connor did a good job of bringing her character to life. Howqver, her declamatory style of soliloquy detracted from the plausivility of the woman she played. Simply thinking out loud would have been just as eloquent., On the whole, though, her characterization was coherent. One last criticism: I found the lighting changes distracting. Often the stage seemed a bit too dim. Other times lights seemed to have been mistakenly turned on. Perhaps a simpler staging would have been adequate.

.Rhetoric

and the commun.ity:

Ahsky

fdcs

Saul Alinsky, professional community organizer, spoke in Toronto on friday of his theories of organizing based on power relationships, conflicts, confrontations and controversy. Alinsky was a guest speaker at a conference on “Co-operation and Confrontation” held at Neil-Wycik college, Ryerson polytechnical institute. Sponsored by the north american student co-operative association, the conference related to many aspects and questions of community control and was designed to create an impetus for student cooperatives to become involved in community activities that aren’t directly associated with students needs alone. The main theme seemed to be the co-operation of persons in co-op living situations with others in their area and how to strengthen together, community services. Alinsky spoke largely to this point and suggested that the biggest problem facing change in society is one of communication. His philosophy is that an organizer should-be able to express himself within the experience of others and to create a situation conducive to communication. For example, if meeting with working mothers who want more day-care centres, he would not address them mouthing radical, rhetorical jargon in praise of their “united front” ‘and against the bourgeois capitalist system oppressing them. Rather one should listen to their gfievances and try to guide them as how to organize themselves in order to establish the centres. Such tedious organizational work behind the scenes is the means to change and these details though dealing with seemingly small issues are more important than the larger unrealiza ble issues. As Alinsky stated, “Until we have organized a thorough and reliable .power base, there - is nothing to confront the powers with; Therefore, all else is rhetoric’,‘, or put more succinctly, “A movement without organization is nothing more than a bowel movement.. . .. .The price of any constructive attack is an alternative that is functional. You have to have ideas or answers for change.” Alinsky devalued the idea that money was necessary for change. Since the have-nots of society have 1) no money and 2) lots of people; you work with the latter. They can express themselves by their voting power and besides, this they have their physical bodies which can express themselves in different ways depending on what their combined intent is. For example, if blacks were protesting living conditions, they might bus out to the wealthy white sururbs and picket with signs saying, “Did you know that Jones, your neighbour, is a slum landlord? “, which would be sure to agitate th’e neighbouri into pressing Jones and which would also be exciting and effective in gaining attention to their problems. Another method would be to play the money powers off against each other by boycotting one chain of stores or one manufacturer of a product while letting the others scramble for more profitable position. If done en masse (this is where organization comes in), you can be sure the heads of the boycotted company will be clambouring to get the political powers to give the dissidents a hearing of their grievences, thereby breaking the boycott. The . purpose is to get those with power to speak for you. ;

to Toronto.

Alinsky pointed ‘out that more than three-fourths of North americans fro-m both the point of view ‘of ecoriomics and of their selfidentification are middle-class. It is. then this mass of people from which support must be gained by the lower classes in order to effectively voice their concerns. Therefore, the middle-class values most radicals of today have grown up with are important for communication : one must utilize that experience for organizational work that must be done in this power area. Here he sees the main problem in doing this is that young activists and radicals openly reject the values of the middle-class and then refuse to work with and try to change it. Also the young seem in a period of disillusionment as to their effectiveness in shaping change. Alinsky felt this was simply a blindness to the past and cited how much influence the anti-war movement has had or since the free speech movement in Berkely in 1965 when to be against the government war policy was almost equivalent to treason: Now, much of the opinion of the war among citizens, especially of the middle, ‘silent majority’ class, has been shifted to that of contempt. Communicat_ion must be

In debate with panel members from Toronto and New York city regions Alinsky was criticized for not presenting any comprehensive analysis of organizational tactics as a guide to translate theory into action. Alinsky replied that he refrained from making dogmatic prescriptions for change that couldn’t possibly cover all situations and said he felt that chance and accident play more of a part in life than anything else.

SUN. OCT. 31

Tldis belief that “life is the exception of the unexpected” is illus!.rated by the fact that many books concerned with Zen and Buddhistic philosophy and the questions of the duality of the negative and positive aspects of life are included in course context at Alinsky’s training institute for community organizers in Chicago. Concerning methods he can only ‘offer that “tactics is doing what you can with what you’ve got.” In the end, Alinsky thinks there is no such thing as perfection in systems; in politics, in organization of the world or that there ever will be. As . he suggests, “The pursuit of happiness is endless and happiness really lies in the pursuit.”

(CUP)Twelve thosand copies of the llniversity of British Columbia newspaper the ubyssey were stolen tuesday from distribution points around the campus. The thieves were attempting to suppress inlormation about a Wednesday vote of confidence in I he student union executive. On learning of the theft the ubyssey staff ordered a bccond press run and stood vigil near the papers after delivery. They eventually caught two thieves in the act and. pounced. The pair ‘were released after the five staff members obtained the license number of the getaway car. The ubyssey staff then tl’aced the name of the car owner and will decide later whether to press charges. At least two cars were seen to,be involved in’ the theft, leading to speculation the rip-offs were part of a II organized campaign against the student c%xecutive, a left-wing coalition calling it&f the human government. The human government is holding the referendum Wowing a campaign promise made elections last spring. The campaign against the human government is led by a coalition of the ui?iversity clubs c’om n1i ttee, the intramural sports executive, ’ and btudent council reps from law, pharmacy, cbllgineering and edu,cation. The stolen newspapers contained a story pointing out basic inaccuracies in the posters and leaflets distributed by right-wing coalition and an editorial supporting the human government. \'~wcoL~v~~

sfolen

An example of the inaccuracieS of the anti-human government campaign was cpntained in a leaflet distributed friday. The leaflet said 12,000 dollars had been given to a local welfare group. No such motion was ever passed by council although the previous student council had given the group 2,000 dollars earlier this year. This, however, was long before the human government was elected. In the same leaflet the group claimed that 5,000 dollars had been loaned to the georgia straight, the local underground paper. During .the summer the straight was attempting to establish a credit rating and to facilitate this the council agreed to post 5,000 dollars ih bonds for the straight. The money was tlever claimed. The group is also claiming that clubs and intramural activities on campus will be destroyed by the human government budget, which puts high priority on cultural events. Clubs receive a 25 per cent increase bver last year’s initial grant of 4,ooO dollars and will have first priority on the money left over at Christmas. The intramurals budget was cut in half compared with last year but the human government made it clear that the money was only expected to last until christmas and that new funding for the sports program would be found by that time. Many-of the posters being put up by the anti-human government camp are being paid for with student society money which has been taken from the intramural and clubs budgets. This contrasts with the human government campaign in which funds come from the pockets of the individual organizers.

Canadians who decry american domination of the Canadian economy can not claim innocence in this form of imperialism. Brazil is a country with an economy controlled by foreign owned companies, and the conglomerate with the largest holdings in Brazil is none other than Brasscan, a Canadian-based empire which provides us with such goodies as Labatts -50. On Wednesday, Jean-Marc von der Weid, past leader of the Brazil national student union outlined the spread of foreign investment in Brazil during this century. In his address to about 35 sympathetic listeners he claimed that foreign interests were. “primarily responsible” for a coup d’etat which occurred in Brazil in 1964.

The theory of the niw regime apparently was that foreign investment was important to the development of Brazil. Subthe regime took sequently, measures to protect the position of existing foreign-owned companies and recruited even more foreign industry through tax incentives, government grants and limited wages for workers. According to Von der Weid this approach has led to the unstable conditions of present Brazil. . Since 1964, he said, national progress has been industryoriented. Road and dam construction has taken precedence over social reform. Workers in some parts of the country, notably in the poorer northeast sections, often do not receive a minimum wage of 36 dollars a month. Strikes have been made illegal. The brazilian bourgeoisie could not compete with the foreign competition and their businesses faced either bankruptcy or merger with the foreign companies. Political activity in universities was forbidden. Von der Weid said crisis in december 1968 between government and opposition has resulted in increased revolt and repression, massive arrests and terror. In return for american aid and military training, Brazil now represents the U.S. presence in South America, even to the point of intriguing against neighbouring leftist countries. Von der Weid places his hopes for Brazil’s future in the unity of anti-government groups who are currently apart both geographically and ideologically. Von der Weid concluded that the armed struggle has lent maturity to the movement and credibility for more widespread opposition in the future involving all social classes and districts of Brazil.

Obey the will of the american people. Obey the will of the Vietnamese people. These are the demands that the american-international joint student union conference have decided to press upon the representatives of the U.S. on november 6. The conference asks students of the world to demonstrate with the people of america to end the war in Vietnam. The international array of student delegates met from October 13-16 at Georgetown university in Washington, D.C. and decided upon this co-ordinated action against the common enemy, american imperialism. The american-international conference was called in answer to repeated demands of European students who are concerned for the safety of the students in south Vietnam. A report released by the conference states : “While the US government tells the american people it is defending democracy it is keeping in power a regime thate has in it’s jails more than 200,000 “political prisoners” ; by this is meant anybody who supports peace and self determination. Q drafted students who are otherwise exempted from military training by the regime’s own laws, because they oppose Thieu government . and the US aggression. o suppresses all civil liberties

and arrests every opposition leader-as Thieu said on august 26 ‘on Vietnam’s national television, he would “club all the dogs at the lower house” and butcher “all opposition faction”. e occupies the student union headquarters, killing many students and arresting Huynh Tan Mam, president of the south Vietnamese union of students, for the 21st time-this time for his life. o smashes all attempts by the trade unions, the Buddhist church, the war veterans, woman’s organithe conI zations, etc. in resisting tinued american effort to carry on the war, fighting for the total and immediate withdrawal of US troops, for the total and unright to self conditional determination.” Delegates to the conference weie presented with material concerning the atrocities and devastation inflicted upon south Vietnamese citizens and valuable agricultural areas that are the basis of the country’s economy. The student leaders, representing forty thousand university and high-school students, charge that they have experienced, “harrassment, intimidation torture, kidnapping, arrest, and murder at the hands of Thieu, via the Saigon and united states military police.” According to the united states agency for international developmerit , the american government has never met the needs of the Vietnamese in housing, education,

economy, etc. Margaret Davis, from the council on international. relations and united nations affairs said. “Saigon is a lot of barbed wire ‘and police, a lot of police. People work and sleep in the streets. And their whole economy at this point is centered there. Saigon’s population has tripled since ‘65, and they haven’tbuilt any more housing.”

Huynh Tan Man is in prison charged with treason. Countless others are charged with rebellion, and even more are said to be in jail, either not charged at all, or whose sentences have run out but haven’t been released. Deputy Tran Van Qua of the Vietnamese committee of agriculture has declared that approximately 60 percent of all crops in Vietnam have been destroyed by american chemical defoliants, despite continuous pleas not to spray indiscriminately. The students at the conference were shown an open letter from 82 jailed women in Saigon protesting barbarous and inhumane practices inflicted upon them and a plea for help. These women charged they have been beaten constantly and have had lime dumped upon them in their “tiger cages” numerous times. The cages are five feet wide by ten feet long and eight feet high. They are totally unsanitary and each is occupied by five inmates. One of the worst complaints is that

MONTREAL (CUPI)--The threeweek old strike at the universite de Montreal has erupted into violence and has resulted in the arrest of 35 strikers. Strong-arm men working in collusion with the university’s security guards attacked strikers and their student supporters at least twice last friday (October 22). The first violent incident broke out at about 1:30 am. According to Nornamd Rheaume, a spokesman for local 1244 of the Canadian union of public employees, several carloads of picketers drove onto the campus to ensure that no strikebreakers had entered during the night. Strikers have been using ‘such car patrols since last tuesday (October 19). The strikers were met near the main building by about 50 helmeted non-uniformed strong arm men armed with sticksThe strike breakers attacked the picketers and smashed the win. dows of their vehicle. Some of the strikers and students were injured. One student was severely beaten about the head and

required 25 stitches to treat ‘a torn ear. Rheaume says that the Phillips security guards called the police only when they realized that they had lost control of the attackers and that someone might be critically injured. He also points out that none of the members of the car patrol even had a chance to escape the car before it was attacked.’ The police talked to the guards and the strong arm men briefly and then arrested 35 strikers and students. All those arrested were released within 36 hours but have subsequently been charged with vandalism and disturbing the peace. Later friday, six carloads of strong arm men circulated on the U de M campus hurling insults and rocks at the picketers and attacking them with fists and sticks. The strikers were, forced to flee the picket lines. “I am unable to comment at this time,” replied a spokesman for Phillips security agency when asked about the incidents.

It is now virtually impossible to enter the campus. Entrances have been sealed off with concrete blocks by security guards. The Phillips guards also expelled students from the social centre Saturday night and padlocked the building. A spokesman for the student cooperative, charges that the administration ordered the shutdown “Just to harrass students without any regard to the consequences Service campus can no longer continue to operate since its offices are located in the social centre. Until Saturday the cooperative had continued to service the vending machines in all buildings not affected by picket lines including the residences which don’t even have a cafeteria anymore since Saturday. Employees of the cooperative will not be able’ to receive their paychecks as long as the social centre remains closed. The closing has also interrupted the publishing of three campus newspapers. Rumors circulated sunday that irate residence students were holding an administration official hostage but were found to be false. Strikers went back on the picket in high spirits a. lines monday despite the violent clash. The picketers including one man with a heavily bandaged head, left strike headquarters singing as they went back to their posts. The workers are striking for parity in wages and working conditions with other Quebec universities, job security and a clear classification of jobs. No normal university activities or classes have operated since October 4 when the office workers and lab technicians went out on strike.

Horror continues...life ends As you read this sentence; at this very second, the armed forces of the United States of America, by direction of the executive of their government, are killing people. They are not killing invaders, they are not killing in self-defence. They are killing men; men in their own country, men dying under their own flag; bleeding and burning into their own soil. I wrote the above article. I am neither communist, socialist, nor capitalist. I offer no lecture. I merely express my horror of a country that expends hundreds of thousands of people and the freedom of countless more, to express their idea of liberty. Murder and maniacal oppression are a very real disease, and this disease is marching towards us to the tune of a hundred n thousand combat boots. For each of you who have never thought; or felt the pain of napalm; a bullet ripping open the body of another human being, or have never cared; for each and every comfortable and souless person who doesn’t read these few lines, I give you John Donne for your epitaph. 8 “No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were......any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” Kenn Hyslop

Late monday, five young people were taken into the kitchener police station for questioning about a number of break-ins around the city. A few hours later, one of them, Raymond, Cebula, 16, was dead. Nay was taken in along with his brother, Pick, both of whom were stoned at the time according to Rick. Rick was questioned first, then Ray. During the interrogation of Ray, Rick claims he heard his brother screaming. According to police, Ray was then put in the exercise yard, where they found him hanging by his belt around 5: 15 pm. Efforts werereportedlymade to resuscitate the youth with no success. police said they did not have him taken to a hospital because of the need ‘for fast treatment, though police, firemen and a hospital crew worked at it for about an hour. By this time, Rick had been released and had returned home. Around suppertime, police came to notify the l’amily of Ray’s death.

A referendum on the proposed Oxlea-Eaton redevelopment complex will be added to the ballot Kitchener municipal d&ember 6. This decision was handed to the Kitchener city council Wednesday by Ontario municipal board chairman T A Kennedy after a tuesday hearing to consider proposals affecting the redevelopment. Late in the afternoon, Kennedy adjourned the hearing in order to return to-Toronto where he could confer with two other members of the OMB before coming to a decision. Kennedy stated that “It is the most difficult decision I have been faced with in the past 15 years...” The hearing was originally slated for the Kitchener council chambers, but due to an overflow spectator gallery Kennedy adjourned the hearing until larger alternate quarters could be found. Before adjournment however, Kennedy announced that all cameras and electronic means of reporting must be removed from

Administration to take over campus center? The student council meeting held Wednesday evening turned into an executive meeting. There was no quorum for a vote on the campus center board policy. A straw vote was held and it was decided that the best solution would be if the campus center is treated as a faculty or department of the university. The board will still be elected by students, faculty and staff, but will ultimately report to university president Burt Matthews. The hiring of turnkeys will remain in the hands of the board. The student council executive believes that this policy will -provide better service while at the same time protecting the interests of the students. Council will try to meet again next monday.

A fight ensued between Rick and the officers, which was broken up by the father. No charges have been laid in connection with the questioning as of this writing. An autopsy was performed on the body, but the results have not yet been officially released. An inquest will be called to determine the cause of the death. Depending on the results of the inquest, the family of Raymond Cebula may take legal action against the police department over U-i@ incident. The police have decided to reserve comment in the case, except for the very curious short statement which was released to the media shortly after the death, that he had committed suicide. The father of the deceased ,is also unwilling to say \ anything on the matter yet. There are many obvious questions surrounding the death of Ray Cebula; the facts which were handed out to the press reveal that even the police are not sure of what happened, or at least are hiding something. ’ For example, if Cebula was supposed to have hung himself in the exercise yardfromwhat did he do it? The walls are bare.

Were tne people brought in’for questioning informed of ! heir rights? Was anyone detained without being arrested? What happened while Ray was being questioned? What was the cause of death? If the police story is true, why did they not take his belt away form him? Why was he being held? Why was he left alone in the yard if the police knew of his condition? &d, if they didn’t, why was he the, only one locked up and why was heleft unwatched? These questions are being asked by a lot of people: Ray’s friends and family, street kids, and students. There are many rumors about that the police account 01 Ccbula’s death is not true. Even if the police version is true, the officers whc . #handled the case are still acccotintable for man: questionable acts. The only way these questions can be answered to th satisfaction of all concerned is through a quick and ir dependant inv&tigation of the entire in&dent--it must nc bc a police investigation in this case. It can’t happen here?

to decide Oxlea plan .fute sympathy with the feelings of the opposition in regard to realizing the need for more guidance from the citizens of Kitchener. This feeling was supported by the 6000 plus signatures on a petition presented to Kennedy by alderman Rosenberg. The basic debate between the two factions seemed to be ; the humanistic aspect versus the 3business and commercial aspect of the project. The city argued that the‘ time and financial arrangements were opportune to the project and that it is was not often that they could secure such arrangements and on that basis the project should be approved. The city admitted that it could not at the present time afford a new city complex without financial help from a commercial firm. convincing The next four spokesmen, inHowever, no evidence was given as to why the cluding alderman Morley as Rosenberg, opposed the pro jet t . city even needed a complex One spokesman asked for an adjournment in order to i vestigate expropriation actions ‘b eing taken against some of his clients. He felt that these actions might bias the decision in favour of the city, since his client’s land is on the proposed site. The suggestion was supported by the other three opposition spokesmen. Rosenberg then asked that a referendum be placed before the citizens of Kitchener ,in conjunction with the forthcoming municipal election. Smith countered that the entire issue was much too compicated for the citizens to decide on. Kennedy then commented that he felt that the citizens of Kitchener did’know or have an opinion on whether or not they wanted the city hall and market place torn down. He stated also that he felt there was much emotional and sentimental aspects attached to the issue. Kennedy frustrated Smi’th several times in his attempts to justify the position taken by the city. It became obvious that Kennedy was not about to let the

the room. This meant the dismantling of a U of W videotaping unit set up previously to record the hearing proceedings. Shortly after adjournment Kennedy announced that the hearing would resume at 12 pm in the Kitchener library auditorium. Many of the original spectators, mostly uniwat planning students, make it to the new quarters and the meeting was resumed. Kennedy started off the hearing by having the various spokesmen attending state wh.o they were representing and their position regarding the proposal, either supporting or opposing the The city of Kitdevelopment. chener was represented by a lawyer, named Smith., who briefly stated the city’s position and said that it supported the project.

involved as the one being considered. Also the city has a deadline to meet. It must receive final apthe OMB before proval from december 31,1971, in order to fulfil a requirement of the contract with Oxlea. If approval is not gained by that date the contract with Oxlea -will be null and void. Presumably this date could be extended, at the option of the Oxlea cotporation. _ Also the complex, as it stands now, must be approved in its entirety; that is, there is no provision for deletions or changes to the original proposal. This is why the city hall and market place have to be torn down in order for the project to continue. As yet there is no plan to incorporate the present city hall and market place into the complex. These terms have been dictated by Oxlea and accepted by Kitchener tity council but rejected

by the OMB. Kennedy was very skeptical of any city allowing a commercial enterprise to finance a complex and in return rent office space back to the city. He could not understand the economics of such a prop&al and wondered why the city adopted such a policy. On the debate of the referendum issue four separate proposals emerged and will appear on the december 6 ballot. First, should the present city hall be torn down or not? Second, should the proposal in respect to the farmers market be adopted? Third, should the leasing of municipal offices be approved? And, would the parking garage pr9posal be adopted?
