Prof beats student A recent ipcrease in the Ontario minimum hourly wage doesn’t justify raising the expected student contributions for student aid funds, student and university officials said Monday. Chris Harries, Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) spokesman, and Don Kasta, UW student awards officer, were both countering a statement made by the minister of colleges and universities, James Auld, last Thursday in the legislature regarding the need for upping the expected student contributions of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) since the minimum hourly wage increased. Auld said although students are having greater difficulty finding summer jobs this year, increases in the *expected contributions from students to OSAP will go ahead as scheduled. The government plan provides loans of up to $1,800 over a normal academic year. Part of the assistance is repayable beginning -six months after the student graduates or drops out. The remaining portion is a grant. The grant portion has been de; creased in recent years and will be further reduced for some students in the next academic year. Direct financial assistance for the next academic year will amount to $46.55 million, an increase of about 18 percent over the previous academic year. In an interview, Harries said OFS believes that the whole concept of expected student contributions is “retrogressive” and instead of tightening policies, the government should be “phasing them out.” He also noted that the raise in the minimum wage rate was “long overdue” and that “-anyhow the increase has already been eaten away by inflation. ’ ’ Moreover, the high unemployment in the labor market

The increases in the expected will severely curtail expected student contributions to OSAP as student contributions caused NDP many students can’t find work for education critic Floyd Laughren to the whole summer; Harries added. ask Auld to justify them. To which Auld told the legislature: “Well, for ‘Citing OSAP changes in exone thing. . .because of the inpected student contributions, Harcrease in the minimum wage.” ries pointed out that the high school graduate intending to enter univerThe minimum wage rose to $2.40 sity and in need of aid will have to hourly from $2.25 on May 1. save $340 over eight weeks (16 Summerjob listings are down beweeks for those already in univertween 30 and 35 percent at the Unisity) for his/her expected contribuversity of Toronto placement tions, which works out to $43 per center, Laughren said. week.

OCUA brief

Fee hike dropped Negotiations between students and administrators during the week resulted in some “reworking” of UW’s brief to the Ontario Council *of University Affairs (OCUA) regarding tuition fees, Federation of Students president John Sliortall said Wednesday. The brief was criticized last Tuesday in senate by Shortall for suggesting a selective increase in tuition fees to be levied by the university’s board of governors to\ offset rising costs. Shortall told senators that the brief was “hastily done” and made recommendations that are going to affect educational prospects of students from low-income families. “Tuition fees are a big factor in determining accessibility to universities,” Shortall said. “Students from low-income groups presently aren’t entering postsecondary education due to the high costs.” Shortall said “the university is-displaying .a lack of concern for the concept of accessibility by advocating an increase in fees. “This (fee increase) would further aggravate the unequal opNow,

tence of co-operative programmes results in a saving to the province in terms of OSAP. Because students in the co-operative programmes are involved in twice as many summerlwork terms as regular students, owing to the alternative study/work nature of the programme, they are much less dependent on the financial assistance available through OSAP. In fact, they are eligible to receive significantly smaller amounts of OSAP. This reduced amount, which represents a saving of approximately $1,700 per student over the period required to obtaiqan undergraduate degree, is all in the provincial grant portion, as opposed to the federal loan component, of OSAP.” The brief, to be presented to OCUA June 13, outlines a number of planning issues to be faced by UW in the coming years and offers a somber financial picture for 1976-77 if government funding continues to fall behind inflation. OCUA is a buffer committee set up by the. Ontario government to mediate between the university system and the province. -john

Tuesday’s meeting he said: “It’s probably hockey”. The association then opened the floor for a discussion of the 75 percent per month increase in the staff association’s dues. The executive is asking for the increase, the first in the six year history of the organization, because “we are now putting out more funds, than we can afford”. A straw vote clearly showed the opposition to the dues increase to be a minority of members. The increased dues will also cover the expense of hiring a fulltime secretary to organize association day-to-day business. The proposal to hire a secretary came under much attack from the floor. Several felt the executive should try to make do with a part-time secretary. Others suggested the secretary should come in for halfdays and then “we could keep the fee increase down to a quarter”. One member felt they should not hire a secretary, asking: “Why not spread the work around?” The executive firmly replied that some individuals in the executive were carrying an unreasonable work load and the secretarial help was vital. The meeting then moved on to discuss the association brief which will be presented to the Ontario provincial cabinet next month. The report charged James Auld, minister of colleges and universities with “misleading the public for his own party’s political gain.” The report further complained of Auld’s not serving his portfolio, the universities, but instead trying to degrade them. Rowe closed the meeting by expressing his agreement with university president Burt Matthew’s statement that all the university has tried to build in the way of public services could quickly be degraded if the government continues to decrease its financing. -mike

A--news programme which will give a working class interpretation of current events has been launched on CKWR (Wired World 98.7 FM). The programme, People’s Canada Daily News (PCDN) has been organized by the -AntiImperialist Alliance of Kitchener-Waterloo, and material will be taken from People’s Canada Daily News/On the Line-a national daily working class newspaper in Canada. Nina Tymoszewicz, who will be hosting with Jenn George, said that the programme will deal with both national and international news. The half-hour programme will also include international working class music, interviews, regular features on China and Albania and poetry readings from Alive Magazine. ‘Tymoszewicz said: “The emphasis of the national news will be on the increasing attempts of the government in cooperation with the monopoly capitalist class to shift the burden of the economic crisis onto the backs of students, workers, immigrants’ and the Canadian people generally. ” Some examples are the cutbacks

in educational and health and social service spending, and the government’s Green Paper on immigration policy which attempts to blame certain sections of the immigrant population for the economic crisis. The growing militancy of workers as reflected in increasing strikes will be another national theme covered. _ A third area, she said, would -centre around important questions of Canadian political economy. PCDN On the Air will also report on native people’s struggles for . land, hereditary rights and national sovereignty. “It appears there wjll be an intensification of these struggles over the summer.” The international coverage will report on national liberation struggles, and on the imperialist activities of the two superpowers, the U.S.A. and the Soviet Union. PCDN On the Air “has, been given high priority” he said, “because of its carefully produced material. ’ ’ Crapo expects the programme, which will be aired every Thursday night from 9:30 to 1O:OO to have an audience of between . ‘500-1000.

gangster Luscious Susan Blakely smiled at her two girlfriends and said, “Meet my boyfriend, Al Capone. ~ * He’s a gangster.” That statement just about sums up the entire contentof the latest gangster opus Al Capone now playing at the Lyric theatre in downtown Kitchener. Underworld crime, especially in Chicago, has long been a favorite topic for Hollywood “cop and robber” movie directors. Unfortunately since Edward G. Robinspn and Jimmy Cagney left the screen in the 1940’s this topic has been tinkered with by men of lesser talents. Most productions have turned out to be tired reproduc$ons of the originals. Only four movies’ since the 1940’s have adequately protrayed the underworld. John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle, Billy Wilder’s Some Like It-Hot and recently both Godfathers are deservedly cop and robber classics. This brings us to the current attempt at cop and robber fum making, Capone. Despite the movie’s fastpaced action (bang, bang, bang) and the infrequent appearance of a large breast (“Al don’t; oh but I love it”), this ffirn is thoroughly dull. Capone gets off to a decent start as it shows how Capone got the infamous scar on his face from a beating by New York city police. At this point the one credible performance is put in by John Cassavetes as Jim Dale, the gentile mobster who introduces Capone to the underworld in the early part of the film. Capone as portrayed by Ben Gazzara, a thoroughly ordinary, unexciting actor is contrasted with Dale. The film presents Capone as a swearing violent slob of a man. Meanwhile Dale, a clean cut business executive-type who owns a string of whore houses tries in vain to contain Capone’s thirst for murder. Well, the movie made this point within the first fifteen minutes of the film and spends the remaining seventy-five minutes to prove just how violent Capone was. The sequences literally leap from one gun fight to another (bang, bang, bang). All the gun fights are begun by an order from the top and Capone loves to scream the orders. (Now is the only time Gazzara makes in attempt to act when he is dropping the ‘Jack Webb’ grimace he wears in almost every scene). The movie thunders along with gun fire until the final few scenes when Capone receives his nemesis as Susan Blakely, his love, is shot

in a gun fight between Capone and three of his ‘associates’. Now where have we seen this turn of events before? Finally Capone is arrested on tax evasion charges and is sent to prison. During the final scenes we see Capone suffering from syphilis and the deterioration of the brain. After his release from prison he is shown with a fishing pole trying to catch fish in an outdoor swimming pool. According to Gazzara’s acting, one would never know he was senile. The’ only hint of his condition is given by his use ofthe fishing pole. Two major faults can be found with this movie’s attempt at realistic drama. First, the acting is atrocious. I’ve already berated Gazzara enough. Capone’s second in command gives in a performance comparable to the soggy towels hanging in Capone’s bathroom.

Susan Blakely attempts to do something with her role as Capone’s lover. However she fails. Capone’s script’ writer Howard Brown is the culprit.! Most of her scenes consist of her being chased around the bedroom furniture by guess who (bang, bang, bang). I know that Susan Blakely has lovely large breasts, but couldn’t the script have told us a bit more about her tormented life with the killer? Perhaps the greatest .blame for this thoroughly dissatisfying fdm should be laid on its scriptwriter. Any writer who believes they can captivate an audience with murders and shootouts for more than an hour must have creative talents comparable to Richard Nixon or Lyndon Johnson. They both have the same gut feeling for violence. . Sorrv. I don’t. -michael

Graffiti Physical J LED ZEPPELIN PHYSICAL GRAFFITI Led Zeppelin has put out, one album consistently. a year sinc.e they began their career. Physical Graffiti is only slightly behind, schedule, and is the band’s first two-record set. It gives us what we have come to expect from Led Zeppelin; that being consistently powerful rock ‘n’ roll and a reasonable amount of innovation on the band’s new music. The album set is excellent for both dancing and listening to, though I’m not sure whether it sounds different enough,

. (from their other albums), and consistently good enough on all four sides ~for them to continue selling this type of music. As much as I think that Led Zeppelin’s next album will have to show a bit more thought and innovation, Physical Graffiti does represent a goodpiece of work by a band that has t-ruely become “a legend in their own time.” f To compare Physical Graffltti with past albums it is musically most similar to the last album, Houses of The Holy, than any of the band’s previous records. I should again point out my concern that these styles give few surprises, the pieces sounding very much the same as others which have come before. The album mixes heavy electric rock ‘n’ roll with acoustic tunes, blues, vocal ballads, exotic I tunes, boogie , and introducing here a couple of funky disco songs. It should be noted here that if you are still w-aiting for a song as beautiful as Stairway to Heaven then you’ll have to wait another year for the band’s seventh album, and try your luck again. The album set starts out with a boogie tune, “Custard Pie”, and then moves into a rocker titled “The Rover”, a song which includes some excellent guitar work continued

Have they’ ever I ed tti us be ‘ore? In looking through your May 23rd edition I was quite pleased to see the advertisement on the back page (the RCMP ad). It’s about time “our finest” were given the recognition they deserve. There is, indeed, ; more unrest occurring in the country. Too much money is being spent on nambypamby help-them-out campaigns. All those bums on welfare, those money grubbing students sponging off the government, those pinch-penny foreigners wrecking the economy, those women libbers and gay libbers corrupting our chil,$dren with pornographic smut. What is this _ country comingto? There is only one way to deal with this monster on the loose. We must show our neighbouring countries the path to righteousness and goodness and foresake the loose wickedness which threatens to engulf us all. We must sally forth, ever onward; shaking off the shackles which keep us from our preordained destinies. It is only through fighting for our rights, through busting skulls, through breaking bones and kicking balls that we can get

by Jimmy Page. The first side concludes with “In My Time Of Dying” a piece which fluctuates between a slow moving vocal ballad and a hard driving rock’n’roll song. The other three sides reveal pretty much the same at first; however there are a few songs that stand out. A piece titled “Kashmir” turns out to be as exotic as its name sounds, while ‘ ‘Bron-yr-aur” gives us a beautiful .acoustic guitar ballad by Jimmy Page. “Down by The Seaside” is a piece which might just as easily be the Rolling Stones performing; it sounds that similar. Led Zeppelin has included a couple of disco tunes on this set. One of these, “Trampled Under Foot”, is the single that was released from this album. They don’t do poorly with this style of music, however I think it best that Led Zeppelin leave it for bands who work more full time on this style. of music. Perhaps the best songs on the album, and the most recognizably Led Zeppelin, are the first two on the fourth side: “Night Flight and The Wanton Song.” They give us consistently powerful rock’n’roll along with excellence in vocals that we have come to expect from Robert Plant. Of tery special note is “Ten Years Gone”, a fine piece that is built around Page’s guitar overdubs. At some points as many as eight guitars are employed. Like a couple of other songs on this album this one has been in the making for several years now, and the work shows. Jimmy Page either writes or else contributes to the writing of every song on the album. As has always been he and Robert Plant are the major writing figures, with John Paul Jones and John Bonham stepping in whenever they have their special sounds to offer. Page also produces th.e album, as he has done since Led Zeppelin began. As for personnel: Jimmy Page is as strong as ever on both electric and acoustic guitars. As was stated above Jimmy gives us some really beautiful overdubs; along with’the complexity, speed, precision, and strength that we have come to expect from him. His writing is better on those songs which have been in the m.aking over a few years than on those written recently. Gen-, erally though the music is pretty good. Robert Plant’s vocals are as timeless, unchanging, and uniquely distinctive ‘as

ever. He continues to use the same range that he always has, with as much feeling, emotion and excitement as always. Plant gives us a bit of his excellent harp playing on Physical Graffltti and that is certainly a nice return to some of the best Zeppelin sounds. Plant also co-writes all but one song on the album, a record that he can boast for all six of Led Zeppelin’s albums. John Bonham’s drumming on this album is just consistently solid, with no percussion revelations. His sound is most similar to the echoing drum sound which dominated “Houses Of The Holy”, that being similar to sealing the drums in a large empty room and echoing the sound all ’ around the walls. His playing dominates ’ few pieces, but it always provides a good ‘“base-beat for the rest of the band to work \ with. Lastly, John Paul Jones, the man who plays bass, synthesized bass, piano, organ, melletron, synthesizers , backing vocals, and various other devices that are necessary to create some of the less conventional sounds, generally takes a back seat in the ’ music. That is, his presence is rarely felt to be as strong and dominant as say Page or Plant, yet his contribution to the overall sound of the music is substantial. It is Jones’ sounds which often take Led Zeppelin out of a format of complete rock ‘n’ roll or blues. Jones is the man who puts the exotic sounds into the music and in this . way a wider degree of variety. This album comes packaged in a container similar to Led Zeppelin III.. It,takes the form of an old walk-up apartment building, and through the cut-out windows we can view pictures of the band members and other scenes which have been taken from various books, movies, and other sources. The purpose and connections between these is somewhat unclear to me but I’m sure that someone put the scenes together according to some grand plan. As usual information about the songs and the personnel is at a minimum. Physical Graffiti is a good album, allowing Led Zeppelin a degree of freedom, but also forcing some repetition and filler songs. In a sadly non-commital way I have to say that I enjoy the album,‘but with some reservations. I think that it has something to offer for any rock’n’roll fan; but whether it has enough for you to buy the two record set will probably have to be resolved by a couple of your own listenings.

lntrimurals For the first summer ever, over 100 teams are involved in the Intramural program-l 11 to be exact which is up from 94 teams last summer. If someone is not involved, contact the IM office and we’ll find a team for you. Eight A level teams and 20 B level teams are vying for the Engineering Memorial trophy. Rumour has it that the Base Burglers , the fall champions are ready to steal the crown from defending champions-Recreation. The youth of Recreation 2A style, claim that they’re number 1, while the Humkins are all quiet. In the B level, if the names have anything to do with it, it could be a battle. Can you imagine the Sad Sacks playing the Bees, or the Disturbers playing the Destoyers or the Screen Gems versus the Dumont Ducks? It could be a fun league this summer.

Basketball

-

The summer basketball league got off to a roaring start Wednesday as a total of 16 teams played their first league game. In A league, all three games were decided by ten points or more as players such as Charlie Chambers (K. St. Lymphnodes) and Phil Schlote (Dons and XDons) led their teams to victory. Dons and XDons have to rate as heavy favourites to carry the summer championship, although they were hard-pressed by an aggressive Kin team, only leading by one at half-time before pulling away in the second half. B League games were much closer, as four games were decided by a margin of less than ten points, including a one-point thriller. Math, Slaughterhouse 5 and Pheasants all appear to have strong teams, but it is too early to pick a favourite. On May 28, the K. St. Lymphnodes play the Twine Ticklers in what should be an exciting contest. In B league, there should be several close match-ups, including the Sneexiologists vs Pheasants and Vl S18zS2 contests. Games are played in the main gym, PAC, on Wednesdays between 6:30-9:30 p.m. Come on out and cheer for your favourite team!

Soccer

This summer’s league is a mixture of the young and old, the novices, the veterans. In the A league, the Senior Citizens will host some tough competitors in Recreation, Black Star, Panthers, Chem Eng and the Klingons. In the B section, defending champions, CCCP must have been resting on their laurels as they were upset 4-O by the Renomes. A new entry, the Bios , after a year of exhibition play is the team to beat.

Fun Leagues

All 54 Recreational fun leagues have started this week. Co-ed Slow pitch is played every Wednesday from 5-8 p.m., Co-ed Innertube Waterpolo is played Tuesdays from 5:30-830 in the pool. Co-ed Volleyball is played Mondays from 7-10 pm in the PAC, Ball Hockey goes Mondays at Seagrams from 4:45-845 p.m. While 7 Aside Touch Football is played on Col. No.4 ‘Wednesdays from 5-8:00 p.m. If anyone wishes tajoin a team, simply go out and find a team or contact the Intramural Office room 2040 or 2050 PAC.
