question of the night was the next and last to be discussed, involving a request from a community group; Willow Publications, for. a $2,000 forgivable loan from the federation in order to institute a community newspaper which would serve as an alternative to the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, and other established media. The request provoked an illuminating discussion of the division between the university and the K-W community, with councillors Kathy Reynolds, Art Ram, John Shorthall and KenBull arguing that there were higher priorities for funding within the university itself. Willow representatives Brian Switzman and David Cubberley retorted that- the communityuniversity split is nothing more than an artifact, giving as evidence that not only do a large proportion of students reside in the community, but that press and other media coverage of the university plays a large part in determining the relationship between the two groups. These and other arguments seemed to sway council, and the Willow representation was passed unamended. The newspaper, a weekly tabloid, staffed entirely by volunteers, will likely make its first appearance in the middle of June. -margot spinnaker

The university administration has managed to work its way through another battle with the Liquor Licensing Board of Ontario. Last Tuesda,y that board held a public meeting to hear the university’s application for licensing and to hear the opposition, to the granting of a license. The university has been involved, for several months now,--with delicate negotiations trying to license the university campus. Expecting opposition, the two area university officials showed up at the hearing with their joint lawyer-J\ McGibbon. And the opposition was there, fourteen of them with their lawyer, all representing the Waterloo Wellington Hotel Motel Association. The entire affair was very quiet and very polite but the main point of it all was that the hotel and motel people are afraid the university license will mean bankruptcy for them-and that may be well near the truth. The lawyer for the hotel and motel owners, D. McDowell, _used as evidence of this fact, a survey done of Guelph businesses after that university received its license some years ago. -All owners reported a loss of business, one saying his clientele haddropped 35 per cent. McGibbon’s response to this was to exclaim that it did not matter at all what happened’in Guelph, the situation was completely different here-not a terribly intelligent remark; it would be foolish to say that Waterloo hotels will be just as busy if and when the campus centre is licensed full time. Naturally, -students are bound to keep to their own territory, their

own atmosphere, venturing into the city only occasionally. However, this was the only complaint that the businessmen did have-that they would be losing money. McDowell attempted to use the argument of university community involvement but did not get too far. It would be difficult to defend a position of community university relations built upon cheap draft beer alone. They also fought against, on principle, the licensing of the university student ‘residences. They saw this as a privilege no other citizen enjoyed; and as such, McDowell argued it should not be granted to students. He did not recognize that to these students, as peculiar as it may seem, the residence is their home and that they should be allowed the privilege of alcohol at their meals; after all, any Canadian that can pay for it may enjoy this benefit. The university defence for its request lay solely on the idea that they were only asking for the extension of the banquet permits they had previously been using. In 1973 the university used 296 permits and they‘argued that a permanent license would only be an extension of that. Of course, the business men disagreed. The LLBO officials took it all in very seriously and have- now returned to Toronto to ponder the matter, as long as they- want. There is no set date for them to hand down the verdict. In the words of federation president Andrew Telegdi, “It could be two months from now or a year from now”. -swan

Thanks to the 6pportunities for ,\Youth ‘program, the KitchenerWaterloo area will again be blessed this summer with troupes of actors . \ and travelling musicians, as well as other formsof social work.. ‘This year’s OFY ‘program which. is Lemploying approximately one ’ hundred ,and seventy persons, encompasses projects ranging from a . study of migratory workers in southwestern Ontario to a film of the ’ . / Kitchener Stoe,k~,Yards. The projects” this year* are small, some/having only threeand four participants, with most of the projects employing five -6 ‘six persons. There are four theatre and musical touring groups; including the Real ’ Canadian 6Iounted Theatrewhich operated last year with an OFY grant. These. groups, will be touring ,Waterloo County entertaining children as \ 5 ’ well as a,dults. ; 2 Six persons were hired to maintain the Birth Control denter and to, . investigate the possibility ‘of a rape crisis center. Among the several service-projects is a project that employs thr@ persons to do small appliance repairs for elderly and disabled citizens i throughout Waterloo County. ‘Psychiatric Rehabilitation services is employing seven persons to do rehabilitation services for ‘former ’ , psychiatric patients, while Project -Outreach is dealing with the mentally retarded and their families in the community.‘ \ Several resource projects have been funded, including ,a group of six persons who are compiling a survival handbook on how to live cheaply in the Waterloo County. Five other persons’are being funded to produce high ’ quality video tapes onthe subject of volleyball skills. Two other groups are involved in the construction ofchildrens toys and books. . . ) ’ The only actual research project funded was Migrant Labour< Research, which will conduct research on the interrelationship between the migrant farm worker and the permanent community in Southwestern Ontario. Two of many projects-that were not funded were a housing project that ’ would have dealt -with the housing problem in the Kitchener Waterloo ’ *area, and a project dealing with ,homosexualityfand related areas. The ’ latter was funded last summer and produced a rather controversial .handbook on homosexuality which-was distributed to the local high schools. .

Just recently, students at the University. of ,Toronto spontaneously ‘refused. toallow Professor Banfield to speak to a gathered assembly. These students haddecided, through previous knowledge of BanfieId and _his works,-that his views are racist, and as such theydid not want him addressing their fellow studen;ts. Of course, 3niversity administrators were upset and some of the students involved in the demonstration have been dismissed. . The National Union of Students (in England) has decided to go a little further in the campaign against recognized racists or fascists. At their Easter conference they passed a -motion to “prohibit and ‘disrupt any .’ ‘meetings held by fascist orracist groups”,. At the executive meeting, to be held next month, another motion will be considered-whetheror not to ban professor Eysenck, specifically, from speaking ‘anywhere. ’ Eysenck is a psychologist who has entertained thought about the racial ‘element in the inheritance of intelligence-not unlike the Jensen ideas. It ’ . is.probable that if the motion pas.ses, and the union actively refuses to allow Eysenck to speak, 1 England’s university administrators. will _ become upset and perhaps focus on that particular motion rather than attacking the entire concept of censoring speakers.

post-secondary education. In short, Auld exemplifies the attitude of ; the Davis. government towards ‘higher’ “education. His know-nothing posturing is enough to frustrate even the most seasoned student bureaucrat. Given the trend to reduce expenditures in’ j post-secondary education (as evidenced in the , raising of undergraduate fees in 1972 and just recently for the grads> a minister who openly proclaims his lack of knowledge is indeed useful to counter all arguments calling for a reversal of the present policy. Auld’s usefulness is best tested by the wav in which he responded to questionsron the &ate of student housing, on the membership of the . new ‘buffer’ committee between / the provincial government and the universities, and on the third term fees for graduate students. When asked about the fate of a Ministry of Colleges and Universities (M&J) report on student housing compiled last year but never made public, Auld said that as far as he knew the results of the report indicated a province wide satisfactionon the part of the universities with student housing. Auld stated that there was nothing secret about the report and- he would send it as soon as possible to OFS. Paul Axelrod, former ,OFS researcher, wanted to know why the report was conducted in February instead of in September, a time when students are registering and consequently the demand for housing is at its peak. To this question Auld readily asserted “that it was the time all the universities chose to respond”. Axelrod asked about the membership of the new ‘buffer’ committee and how many students would be on’ it. Auld evaded the question by saying “we all hope for the best”. Auld’s glibness was further ” manifested by his response to the + plight now facing graduate / . students with the recent imposition

of a third term fee; to -this he merely replied “I do not know enough”. Apart from Auld’s ignorance, which could be somewhat attributed to the newness of his job, the fifty OFS delegates were treated to a rather boring day-long plenary. Matters of importance discussed at the plenary varied from the relationship of the student press with the student unions, to the election of the new OFS executive. Terry Harding, publications coordinator from Waterloo’s Federation of Students, urged the plenary to endorse his motion calling for a ‘united front’ between the student press and the student. unions. Harding felt that there was a necessity for such a ‘front’ in order to develop a coherent student movement. He wanted to circumvent the internal fights which often occur between the press and the student unions. Mike Janigan, president of Western Ontario’s student ?ouncil, voiced his disagreement with such a motion as it implied an acceptance with the other party involved. Speaking against the motion, Art Moses, executive assistant of the University of Toronto student union, pointed out that “you cannot legislate this sort of ‘united front’, as such a united action depends upon the issues involved”. Moses also emphasized the need to keep the press free from any external influence, and. that such a ‘front’ would jeopardize this basic freedom. The plenary unanimously agreed with Moses, except for Waterloo, and the Harding motion was defeated. Wrapping up the conference the new executive was voted into office : Shane Roberts, Waterloo; Barb Cameron, Toronto; Janet Elliot, Lakehead; Tom Maich, Western; Harold Persaud, Queens and John Young, Fanshawe. -john

The drug plan is for full-time students only, as is the entire Health Services operation. Staff members, faculty and part-time students will ordinarily be treated only in an &emergency situation. The two full-time and ten parttime doctors are hand&picked by director Andrews, himself one of the full-time practitioners. “I pi$k them for a personality that can communicate with students as well as their philosophy and ability’-‘, he told the chevron. The operation is fairly popular among the area doctors, and Andrews has a waiting list of doctors willing to ’ practise at the. clinic. Several nurses and receptionists are also normally on staff, although the operation is presently understaffed due to-a recent rash of resignations. Health Services doctors are required to make house calls to any students in the K-W area after hours if the student cannot make it to the hospital. If you are in the emergency section of the K-W hospital, your family doctor is the Health Services staff, and they ( may be required to sign for your admittance. Health Services does not perform abortions, but refers cases to either Toronto hospitals or clinics in Buffalo. Women are seldom referred to. the local hospital for Abortion, since the atmosphere there is something less than cooperative. In the past eight-month school year, the service handled thirtytwo abortion referrals. Ten other women decided ’ to keep their babies. Altogether, the staff ran one hundred and fifty-seven pregnancy tests. These figures are all lower than those of previous Ye?rs 7 Venereal disease is still big though, and there have been more cases of gonorrhoea treated at Health Services this year than any other. The disease is still reacting well to penicillin and can be easily cured. Andrews also said that in his five years at the clinic he has never seen, nor had anyone else, an active case of syphilis. Along with requests for abortions, Health Services refers patients that are requesting sterilization. Andrews knew of only one woman that had successfully sought the operation within the K-W comunity. Most doctors refuse to sterilize patients that are either unmarried or have. s no children. In the past ‘three -years there have also been no cases of misuse of ‘non-medical’ drugs reported to the staff. Andrews believes that perhaps these things are no longer of interest to the university community and that instead the use has increased in the highschool community. Little research is conducted in Health Services. Records are kept of how many people require a certain service in one yea&-like the pregnancy tests or the morning-after pill. The morning after pill dispensed at the clinic is actually a very high dose of estrogen (5 milligrams a day) that is taken for five days after \ intercourse. Women can take the medication only once and it is considered quite successful in terminating or preventing pregnancy. Anyone, though, who has the morning after pill and remains pregnant will be referred for an abortion if they wish. -Susan

Henry VIII wrestled with the Vatican over his human right todivorce, and since Charles I lost his ,head , and his divine right to rule simultaneously in the 17th century.-The decline of -feudalism also eroded the church’s political strength, and the proliferation of competing denom-r inations introduced a ‘debilitating divisiveness which made the religious lobby in the halls of power weaker still.

oil shortages notit looks as though the to be carrying tankers for a good while yet to come. If pollution of the waters is going to be controlled, the main currently hopeful line of attack seems to lie in redesigning the mammoth ships -with a view to minimizing the risk of spillage. At present, most of the international agreements which are supposed to regulate transoceanic shipping are out of date, and a body known as the Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organisation is charged with the task of drafting a new comprehensiveconvention to cover marine pollution. T-he special pollution problems created by chemical tankers, for instance, and the disposal of ships’ garbage and sewage, have never been the subject of international regulation. Two major sources of pollution in oil tankers result from tank washing and from dirty ballast water. An evaluation of different tank washing procedures is being undertaken, and the suggestion has also been made that this operation. should be carried out on land. No obvious best approach has yet been determined, however. Dirty ballast, by contrast, is fairly ..: easy to control, by relatively modest ’ expenditures in ship construction. The segregated ballast principlewhich, as the name implies, keeps the ballast water and the oil cargo separated at all times -is capable of solving the problem quite satisfactorily. In fact, the Soviet Union’s first supertanker, the Krym, will have segregated ballast I compartments incorporated into its construction, at an additional 10 per cent of its cost. The Krym will have a deadweight of 150,000 metric tonnes, which places it in the smaller class of supertankers-vessels up to 800,000 tonnes are planned, which should lead to a decrease in the percentage of cost needed ... ..“.. to. ._._........I.. install

type of humour where you immediately begin to laugh. Once the situation becomes evident the lyrics coupled with the tempo create the situation where it seems as if you’re watching a clown trying to achieve a hopeless quest. Jay Telfer is much like a clown. He writes music that is funny, entertaining and, in some ways suspiciously true. A good first attempt that should be heard at least twice. (for added fun try to pick out the performances of Murray McLauchlan and Moe Koffman on the cuts) Schubert: Duo Op. posth, 162 and 3 Sonatinas Op. 137, For Violin And Piano, Arthur Grumiaux, Violin, Robert Veyron- Lacroix, Piano Phillips 6500 341 The selections picked for this album are not Schubert’s best but they are important for what they illustrate. These pieces were written in 1816 when Schubert was 19. They are quitesimple and direct and because of this can be played by the average musician. This feature allows interested pursuers of classical music to be able to perform sometrue “classical” music. Technically this album is well produced. The piano and violin are the only two instruments so there is little chance of anything going wrong. However, the album does not seem’ like it can be intently listened to. Instead, it seems more hopeful when played as a slight diversion/when one is reading or engaged in quiet activity. -kati middle&

(WSiO28) T.B. Sheets by by Van Morrison is a collection of taped sessions , recorded -shortly after leaving THEM, the group Morrison began his’career with. This was in either I 1967 or 1968. If that sounds like a long time ago, it is, but the album is deceptive in its presentation. When first heard this album convinces you that Morrison had. recently recorded a number of his earlier compositions. For a collection of old tapes the album maintains the quality of a well produced studio album. Morrison’s singing and music is so intricate, varied and well-timed it is difficult to actually believe they were recorded seven years ago. Probably the only desdription befitting Morrison’s style of music lies in it’s somewhat remarkable fusion of jazz, rhythm and blues and rock combined with his complete disregard for clear enunciation which results in a long chain of slurred and shattered words. Morrison’s voice is his own ins+trument, never unique hesitating to splurt out sounds that most vocalists wouldn’t touch with a ten foot microphone-even going as far as imitating a lion as only he can. As far as any further description of Van Morrison’s style of com’position goes it’s extremely difficult to put into words what to like about his albums. Of all the people I’ve spoken to about Van Morrison it seems that everyone either finds it very difficult to enjoy his unique presentations or else are unabashed Morrison enthusiasts. For this reason I doubt if anybody will get. turned on to Morrison through this album, but one never knows. However if you’ve enjoyed Van Morrison In the past T.B. Sheets is an excellent compilation of many- --early and unkfiown corn posit ions. ’ The title of the album refers to a woman that Morrison once lived with and whom he watched die from tuberculosis. The intense involvement of Morrison’s p’ersonal life is movingly reflected in the title track and throughout the album. In addition to the earlier, lesser known tracks Morrison

Dixie Chicken-Little Feat; Warner Bor& Records BS2686 Dixie Chicken is the nam‘e of the album, Little Feat is the.vame of the group-from California. The only other album heard from them is called Sailin’ Shoes and it was impressive. In many ways Little Feat is a typically American band, somewhere between the Grateful Dead and Boz Scaggs, because at times they sound like both of these bands. However Little Feat adds a little bit more than most West Coast groups. They have a <country rock sound similar to the Dead and the New Riders yet they sometimes display an almost European quality, the best example being a track entitled Lafayette Railroad which loosely resembles Traff it’s corn posit ion Tragic Magic (Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory). This EuropeanAmerican combination is typified by the scope of instruments used in their recording sessions, anything from cowbells to congas to ta blas to the synthesizer. The title track Dixie chicken is a fast - moving - finger - popping -

The guitar work of Paul Barrere, as well as the fine piano pieces provided by Bill Payne deserves favourable mention. Yet the strong point of Littls Feat’s attract iveness lies in the smoothness and rhythm of their vocalists, Richard Hayward, Bill Payne, Lowell George and Paul Barrere and of course their female accombaniment background which plays an integral role in their musical continuity. The various voices’ mix and dissolve into each other and seldom repeat themselves due to the number of differ&t and unique, vocal stlyes. If you feel.that you would like a slight change from the already established American West Coast bands, namely the Grateful Dead, New Riders and Jefferson Airplane then Little Feat maybe what you want, especially their album entitled Sail& Shoes. The above statement is not a put down of the thre& groups mentioned, it only expresses my feeling that ,they have dominated “countryrock” music in North America for the last five years atid although their arrangements are constantly being perfected and improved they sometimes sound somewhat repetitive. Anyway, why don’t you put on your sailin’ shoes and pick up some Dixie Chicken and give it a try; it’s happy music. Note: Do not Cjlay this album more than opce a day. -vince

The ongoing crisis in American society is extending onto yet another / .battlefield this year-the’ Little Leagues. _ The Leagues, of course, are the US-based worldwide organization of _ some two miiliti players and fifty thousand teams which forms. the bottom rung on the ladder of organized baseball, the most American sport of all. Every year,%rdes of small boys stream onto the baseball diamonds of the nation to learn the virtues of physical fitness and cutthroat competition which will stand them in good stead in later years. This year, however, there’s a new.factor in this time-honoured,cyclegirls want to play too. It’s a nationwide’ movement, apparently, an unintentional spinoff of the women’s movement. ;Encouraged by a suc, cessful test-case ruling in New Jersey that the Little keagues’ traditional discrimination on grounds of sex is illegal, hundred$possibly thousands of girls between the ages of eight and twelve are applying for admission to their local teams in the face of concerted opposition from coaches and League ‘bureaucrats. _ In the New Jersey court dzision, the judge rejected the Leagues’ ‘.argument that, as a,private,organization it was entitled to place whatever \ restrictions on membership that it-desired. In reality,’ the court majntained, the, Leagues-are a-“public accommodation” which often use& public funds and facilities, and as such may not discriminate. --. I _ Other arguments used by the Leagues to support their case often verge on the ludicrous. They assert, for instance, that girls in the 8-12 age-group are weaker than boys-this was shown in court to be quite untrue. They say that girls must not receive “cosmetic” injuries to the face or teethpresumably in the fear that their chances of marriage would thus ‘. be hamFred-and that boys, coaches and first-aid assistants should not be permitted to touch the girls. All these arguments were rejected by the court The Leagues even w$nt so far as to resurrect the old fable that “cancerous lesions may be formed by traumatic impact upon the female breast ‘tissue” in. a thoroughly scurrilous attempt to establish ethical justification for their position. To no avail. The New Jersey court was adamant in the girls’ favour, and now a similar proceeding is being undertaken in New York City, c w~here Little League officials reacted to applications from . female basebaifers with a counter;offer of a girls’ softball league. Tired of - , - discrimination, the girls refused toaaccept the ‘compromise’, which failed completely to address the basic problem. In Georgia, in Micwan and in Delaware, further tiugglesof this kind are shaping up. I ’ Back in New Jersey, hundreds of the state’s two thousand teams . declaredtiey would shut down rather than comply with the court ruling, - and may-have followed through+vith the threat. But in some towns the adjustment to mixed baseball has been made without too much difficulty. ’ In Tenafly, N.J., -eight of- the ten teams have one -female member each, though some of the coaches have displayed open resistance to the change. 7. “You can’t teach a girl to swing a bat”, says one. “Many boys aren’t qualified either, but at least you can teach them better. It’s ridiculous. The girls shouldn’t be wearing a catcher’s mask or a glove or even be swinging a bat.” : Despite this coach’s reservations, one ,nine-year-old Tenafly girl, Amy Dickinson, was the first-draft choice-of all the coaches in town. sign- of similar agitation in Canada. But $t --- There hasn’t. been-much shouldn’t be too long before the junior levels of the ice hockey hierarchy ’ begin to feel the o’nslaught of women’s liberation, as more and more little girls begin torealize that they are less different from little boys than * ,many of’their elders would like to suppose.
