The senate undergraduate coun1 decided yesterday to table a rejr&calling for the closure of the .rman relations and counselling udies department until opposing ews can be presented to council. Council’s move might influence :nate at its Jan. 19 meeting as to hether to accept a task force relmmendation that the UW deu-tment be closed down and its + -ograms phased out. If senate decides to endorse the :port, then it will go to the UW Dard of governors for final ratifiition. The closing down of the deartment could take up to two :ars to complete, UW president urt Matthews said at a regularly :heduled news conference yesrday . It took council one hour to reach s decision to table, and the Ddy heard various students and culty members argue for a brief spite so they could better re)ond to thereport. The report was released to the :ws media on Monday and to :nators a week earlier. Meanwhile, the senate graduate

council voted unanimously on Wednesday to recommend to senate that the task force’s report be accepted as is. The task force, chaired by graduate studies dean Lynn Watt and comprised of five professors and onegraduate student, drafted a 2O-page report which examines in detail the three programs offered by the department and proposes that they be discontinued. However, the report calls for provisions to be made by the Arts Faculty so as to allow students curren?ly enrolled in doctoral, masters and bachelors programs to complete their degrees. There are I4 PhD students, 29 masters and 33 undergraduates enrolled in the department. In the three years the department has existed (it was established in 1972 as a spin-off from the psychology department), 30 students have graduated with masters and 5 with doctoral degrees. The report says the goal of the department to develop ‘ ‘interdisciplinary programs in human relations” is a “laudable one and had the department achieved it, its

Pub ripped-off As if the campus centre pub did )t have enough problems, a pub ‘fice was robbed of approximately !90 during the holidays. The amount lost, according to sard of entertainment associate iai’rman, Art Ram, consisted of >out $200 in quarters (all wrap:d), $70 of their float funds and !O of petty, cash. Ram said they had determined lat the theft took place between ecember 18 and 30. He explained lat one of the employees was in le office on the 30th and used the npty petty cash box which was in Le cabinet from which the .money as taken. The employee did not realize lat the box was not supposed to be npty, so it was not reported at at time, Ram said. He added that was reported to security last Jesday.

Security declined to make any comment to thechevron on the matter. “I don’t suspect anyone with a key did it since all those with keys have just received raises and I don’t think they would risk that” Ram said. He was referring to employees of the pub. Ram later added that, as yet, all the keys to the cabinet that are in

programs would almost certainly have provided worthwhile academic opportunities for ‘both graduate and undergraduate students. ’ ’ However, the report adds that this goal hasn’t been achieved and the department “ . . .is probably incapable of doing so.” In a presentation to undergraduate council yesterday, Goss Barre t-Lennard , a human relations and counselling studies professor, disputed the report’s conclusion saying it takes ‘ ‘considerable time to work at developing an interdisciplinary program. ’ ’ He added that “one of the unique aspects of human relations and counselling studies is the integra-

This is because the cabinet was used by the board of entertainment before it was usedsby the pub, he explained. There were no signs of forceable entry except for a few scratches on the locked cabinet door. Ram could not definiately say whether or not these scratches were present before the robbery. The thief, or thieves, had to get past three locks in the process of the robbery: one on the office door,

one on the cabinet door and alock on one of the money boxes. Ram said that the lock on the money box can be easily picked while the other two present more difficulty. Equipment worth much more than the money taken was left in the office untouched, Ram said. This prompted him to make the comment: “It had to be someone who knew what to look for.” In the past, the pub has experienced robberies. in which valuable equipment was taken. Ram said that in these cases, as in the recent one, the thefts took place after the pub had been closed for a lengthy Ijeriod of time. Ram said that from now on all money will be kept in the bank and not in the office. No arrests have been made in connection with the Christmas i robbery. -graham

Soliciting funds for student scholarships is one of the many goals for UW this year, and it won’t be easy, says university president Burt Matthews. In the past, the university hasn’t been “very active” in trying to get scholarship money, Matthews said Tuesday. Matthews said he’s going to approach the university’s committee of development by June or July to see whether he can urge the group, made up of members of the UW board of governors, to solicit money from sources other than the provincial government. However, the president said he’s “not optimistic” about obtaining outside funds.

The terms of reference of the committee is to “procure” funds from sources other than the government for the “enrichment of the university’s academic programs and fiscal development,” Matthews said. To date, the committee hasn’t been “doing very much” to raise scholarship money from community donors, the president added. A year ago, UW ranked 15th among Ontario’s 15 tax-supported universities in scholarship funds available on a per student basis, Matthews said. Right now, even after the setting up of a university wide contributory scholarship fund, UW still re-

Pub pact paralyzed The agreement between the Federation of Students and the university regarding the campus centre pub has been rejected by the Liquor Licence Board of Ontario, federation president John Shortall told student council at-its meeting on Tuesday. Shortall later told the chevron that the agreement was rejected as contrary to the Liquor Licence Act because it gave the.federation too much control. The rejection, received by Shortall on Dec. 16, 1975, said in part that: “in its present lease form, the licence holder, the university, does not retain control of the operation.”

However, Shortall said, “we have taken over the pub and are operating as though the agreement were in force until we get clarification of some points.” The agreement with the university would have given the federation effective control of the pub while leaving the licence in the hands of the university. This would make the university, in the person of the administrative services director Bill Deeks, responsible to the liquor board for the operation of the pub. Shortall said that he expected little difficulty in changing the agreement to satisfy the requirements of the liquor board.

mains “‘in the bottom” compared with other universities. The fund, which consists of scholarships and bursaries, amounts to $172,000 and $68,000 comes from contributions made by staff and faculty with a matched grant from the university. In addition, there are 44,000 in Descartes mathematics scholarships, $12,000 in optometry scholarships, $14,000 in miscellaneous scholarships and $34,000 in bursar-y funds. In a related matter, Matthews announced that UW received $500 from Nestle Canada Ltd. to establish a scholarship for an “outstanding Faculty of Arts student.” The money was awarded in the name of Tim Pickett, an Arts student, in recognition of his selection to the Canadian Inter-Collegiate Athletic Union’s Canadian All-Star Football team. Nestle has offered the College Bowl promotion whereby the home institution of every player selected to the Canadian All-Star receives a $500 bursary in the player’s name. The company also gave a $1,000 bursary to the institution at which the Most Valuable Player in the preliminary bowl game is registered. Total grants amount to $15,000. Pickett, once a student at St. Jerome’s high school, is the defensive halfback for UW’s Warriors. Though the athletes don’t get the money, the scholarships are awarded in their names. -john

In a stunning upset Frank Mensink emerged the victor in the recent senate election for undergrad-at-large representative. With 368 votes (28+.5%), Mensink topped Ray Groom who had 336 votes (26.1%), Brad Keeler who Garnered 310 votes (24.1%) and Bruce Rorrison who obtained 275 votes (21.3%). The low turnout of about 1300 people (which is under 10%) was blamed on the mail strike and general student apathy with regards to the Senate. Surprisingly, Mensink, who had been a relative unknown, defeated people considered as “names” on this campus. Bruce Rorrison is Arts society president and quite involved with the Federation of Students. Ray Groom is known because of the activity of his father, Bill Groom, who is a former staff association president and sits on the board of governors. Keeler formerly sat on the campus centre board and is very important in the UW birth control centre. Frank Mensink’s activity has mainly been confined to St. Paul’s College where he is secretary-treasurer of the alumni club. In a telephone interview with the chevron he said that bing ana ctive former resident of St. Paul’s helped him gain his votes from residents and ex-residents of the college, many of whom are his personal friends. Mensink is presently a Math student, switching into Math after three years in Engineering. He believed many votes came from his present or former classmates. He also believes, as many observers do, that people in Math and Engineering voted for him because he is in or was in the same faculty as they are. Mensink did not wage a large campaign because of the mail strike. He was quite surprised that Bruce Rorrison’s campaign was not as effective as he thought. He said that he would like to see candidates make more contact with the voters. Mensink felt that students don’t know enough about the senate, though he also felt student senators are left in the dark on a number of issues. In the losing camps the reaction was different, ranging from shock to relief. Bruce Rorrison was astounded by the vote, but felt the mail strike may have hurt his campaign as it was gaining steam. Still he was determined not to give up student politics at Waterloo. Perhaps the most relaxed loser was Brad Keeler, who felt that he shouldn’t have entered the senate race because his heavy involvement in other activities would not give him enough time to devote what he felt was needed for an effective job there. -j.j.

Monday’s senate executive committee meeting proved to be an exciting event which featured UW secretary jack Brown, president Burt Matthews, vice-president Tom Brzustowski and dean of graduate studies Lynn Watt. The main topic on the agenda was the closing down

of the human relations and counselling studies department, and the executive committee decided to place the item before senate at its Ian. 7 9 meeting.

Groups join to produce newsletter Twenty-five KitchenerWaterloo community groups have joined forces to produce a monthly community newsletter. The first issue, now in preparation will be distributed later this month. The newsletter, in a pamphlet form 9 will contain submissions from the involved community groups and other interested groups who can still contact the organizers . Each community group will outline their goals and ongoing programmes in the first issue. These articles will be collected and then typeset and printed for distribution. The organizers of the newsletter see the project as a forum to exchange ideas and criticisms and mutually support their activities. The Ki tc hener-Waterloo Record, which owns virtually every

newspaper in the region, including the Waterloo-Chronicle has given very limited coverage of the groups’ events and the newsletter organizers see the project as filling this gap. Many of these people were involved in the production of the independent Kitchener-Waterloo Free Press during the summer of 1974 which folded after about ten issues. Since the failure of this project the organizers have been meeting regularly and began the newsletter last September. The groups involved include Radio Waterloo, OPIRG, the Community Action Centre, Dumont Press Graphix 9 the Rape Distress Centre, Gay Liberation, Creative Energies Centre, the Global Community Centre, and the food co-op. The newsletter organizers add, almost any group is welcome to join

the project. However, the participants have decided to discourage the involvement of certain ‘“authoritarian’ ’ groups. These groups include the AntiImperialist Alliance (ALA), Progressive Cultural Club and other groups which accept direction from the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) (CPCML) . One of the newsletter participants Michael Ura, an Arts student, told the chevron: ‘ ‘We don’t care about the involved group’s internal politics, however we oppose the involvement of authoritarian groups who refuse to work cooperatively with other groups and listen to other views.” Ura cited the AIA’s disruption of Katie Curtin’s talk on China and last term’s Wages for Housework meeting as examples of their “dogmatic” behaviour. However, Ura said they would

accept articles from members involved in AIA and other CPC(ML) groups if they are consistent with the newsletter’s goal of helping to change society to suit people’s needs. A spokesperson for AIA or PCC could not be reached for comment. Should you know of any groups interested in the newsletterproject, you should contact any of the participating groups, OPIRG or Shane Roberts in the Federation of Students office. The first issue of the newsletter will be out in late January. Newsletter organizers estimate they will print 1,000 copies. Each group will pay eight cents a copy for the number of copies they require. Students on campus can obtain copies from the federation office or the OPIRG office in the Chem-Bio link. -michael

The administration at UW is cooperating with the Energy Management Program of the Ontario ministry of energy in an attempt to drastically reduce the energy consumption levels on campus. One of the immediate successes of the project has been a 10 per cent cut in the UW’s utilities expenditures. Academic vicepresident Tom Brzustowski, who is involved in the energy-saving campaign, says that over $177,000 has been saved by removing a number of fluorescent lamps, shutting down lighting in unused rooms and cutting back on airconditioning and heating levels. Energy is also being saved by delaying the turning-on of airconditioning and heating, dropping the hot water temperature from 140 degrees Fahrenheit to 115, improving the maintenance of energychanneling equipment to reduce energy-loss while it is being transported and by watering the lawns at nights during the summers rather than during the daytime. W.E. Robinson, an engineer in the physical resources department, claims that the reduced light levels have saved the most money. Evidently, many members of the UW community have been roaming the halls, turning off ventilators, closing windows and shutting off unused lights. In a related matter, UW has joined Fanshawe community college and the universities of Carleton, Guelph) Laurentian 9 Trent, Western, and York in a. program sponsored by the Ontario energy management program designed to conserve $164,000 in energy costs per year. The program will cost an es timated $53 1,000. Highly specialized monitors and controls will be installed by physical-plant personnel in the structures on these campuses. -mike

Livestock Microbes will soon be employed 3y the UW chemical engineering department to convert manure into ‘eed for livestock (cattle, hogs, ?oul try). The microbes will be housed in a ‘ermenter where they diet on aninal wastes from which they are ex2ected to produce nutritious protein. Professor Murray Moo-Young with the help of University of 3uelph animal nutritionist professor David Mowat will be carrying 3n the work to try to build a practi:a1 system for producing protein his way. The National Research Council ras been intrigued enough by the dea that it has awarded $80,100 for ;he project. The funds are provided in the lope that means may be developed ‘or producing all the protein on a *arm that its animals may require. The manure on the farm would deally be put into a special fernenter where the yeast-like mic-obes would go to it. The animals would then feast on the resulting 3rotein. Livestock now dine on imported joy bean meal and fish meal. The United States is the main supplier ‘or the estimated $50 million spent Jer year by farmers in Qntario for ‘.. .hese imports. This research was triggered by a number of projects Moo-Young has 3een involved with over the past several years. He has successfully produced Jrotein from micro-organisms that ive on petroleum; he has also had juccess with micro-organisms that ive on cellulose (sawdust or 3aper).

Moo-Young says he had some concerns as to whether the grant would be made, in view of recent federal government statements concerning spending cutbacks. He regards it as an indication NRC believes the research could be extremely beneficial in the near future. Moo-Young has been named co-ordinator of the project; his primary concern will be to develop the process. Mowat is directing the evaluation part of it. Mid-West Silo is the “collaborating company.” Moo-Young is particularly optimistic about the project for a couple of reasons: first, he has developed a new type of fermenter unit which he feels will work well; second, he will be using a new (for him) kind of micro-organism (the mold) with which to start up the project.

Stirring

device

As for the fermenter, the traditional type is, essentially, a tank with a stirring device. “My design involves a tube through which the manure will pass,” he says. “You shovel it in at one end, the micro-organisms feed on it as it passes through, and the usuable protein will come out the other end.” His design takes into consideration the need for temperature controls and the addition of oxygen to sustain the growth of the microorganisms. He has also developed a polymer-addition tee hnique for speeding up growth. One of his process inventions has recently been patented and another is pending. He has already experimented with a lab model of the fermenter. Now he will scale this up to a demonstration-sized model with the capacity to provide for the protein needs of about 20 farm animals . The unit will be built on the University of Guelph’s experimental farm near Elora.

? Very As

for

the

promising “new”

micro-

organisms with which he will be working, this is a very recent development, and a very promising one. “We started in this work using a micro-organism that had first been isolated by the United States army,” he says. “They had been studying a mold that used to rot their clothing and equipment in the tropics. They found they could use it to break down cellulose, including paper, into alcohol. They could actually use the-alcohol as a fuel. In other words, they weren’t interested in making protein, but we soon realized that it could do so.” That’s the micro-organism he has been using in the past. The new one, he feels, will produce protein more than three times as fast as the U.S. army mold. It is the discovery of D.S. Chahal, who found it in compost heaps in- his native India, and isolated it successfully. Chahal’s organism makes protein faster because it doesn’t waste as much energy as th’e U.S. army breed. “Dr. Chahal has just joined our team,” says Moo-Young. “He had been a Fullbright scholar at M.I.T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) until recently. He is on campus now and has already begun work on the new project.”

Starts

now

Production of the new fermenter is expected to start this term. Hopefully, it will be ready some time next spring, and the first protein should start oozing out of it three or four days later. A feature of the Moo-Young fermenter is that you can get a steady flow of manure in and protein out so you don’t have to make it in batches, although this is also possible. Mowat has set up a-careful program to monitor the nutritional results and safety of the protein when it is fed to farm animals. These tests will be carefully controlled over the next couple of years. Some of the questions the two hope to answer include: Will the scaled-up fermenter work satisfactorily? Will it be easy forafarmer to

The 38th annual meeting of the Canadian University Press was held at McGill University in Vontreal during the week from December27 tojanuary 2. It featured many sessions such as this neeting of the services commission aimed at improving the workings of CUP as a national ‘\ _r

operate? Will the animals take to the protein? Will it be adequately nutritious? How will the cost of this microbe-produced protein compare with the cost of imported soy bean or fish meal protein? Moo-Young says lab tests indicate the protein will have all the amino acids livestock need for healthy growth. He has been working with professor Thammaiah Viswanatha of U-W’s department of chemistry. Viswanatha is a biochemist and is particularly interested in amino acids. “We know that protein, if it is to provide good nutrition, must contain certain essential acids,” Moo-Young says. “This is why the proteins available through eating grains are deficient-for example, they lack lysine, a vital amino acid-for proper human nutrition. “Interestingly enough, the manure from which the protein will be made contains everything needed to produce the amino acids ; that is, it contains carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and so on. “Now we know from- our previous research, that when you-make protein out of petroleum you have to add nitrogen and other ingredients. Not so with manure.” He feels about 50 per cent of the manure produced by a herd of farm animals will be required to produce all the protein they need. This means the other 50 per cent could be used for fertilizer or soil condii-

Have ya heard... There’s a professor at the University of Toronto who has also taught here and at Western and who claims UW is a friendly place; Western is a social place, and Toronto is a serious place. When he was at Waterloo he’d step into the classroom in the morning and say, “Hi class !” and the class would shout back “Hi!” At Western he’d do the same thing and there’d be silence-they were too tired from being out the night before to bother to respond. At Toronto he says, “Hi class !” and they all write it down.

tioning, or the farmer could produce more protein than he needs and dry and sell the rest. Possibly, Canada could even become an exporter of microbeproduced protein. No consideration is being given to production of protein for direct human consumption at this stage. “People will keep on eating meat for their protein for a long time yet,” Moo-Young predicts, “but the benefits could be that their steaks and pork chops will be a little cheaper.” He says preliminary calculations indicate the cost of protein feed supplements could be cut in half for the average farmer, including the amortized cost of the fermenter. Moo-Young is aware that there is indeed some usable protein in farm animal wastes even without processing them through a fermenter. He knows that for years it has been the practise of some farmers to mix small amounts of manure in with the feed they give their hogs. However, there are limitations to these attempts to recirculate protein. For one thing, you can only take care of a very small percentage of the animals’ protein needs this way. For another, you can only recirculate protein this way two or three times; otherwise, toxic materials tend to develop in it. “With our process,” he says, “the manure will be biochemically transformed. ” “Even most of the undigested fibres and cellulose in the manure will be transformed into protein the animals can readily digest. We think a farmer will be able to take care ofjust about 100 per cent of the protein needs of his livestock in this way, and we think there will be no -recirculation problems .” Within two years Moo-Young% and Mowat should have some answers to their questions. In the meantime, the project will generate a lot of work for the research team which also includes UW chemical engineering professor Cam Robinson and students Janis Swan, John Hilton, Linda Duxbury and Dia Gabanni. -shane

OCLG A lecture series on local govemment has been organized in a cooperative effort between the Federation of Students and the Ontario’ Conference on ~~~ Government (O.C.L.G.). The reason for the course, according to federation education coordinator Shane Roberts, is that there have beencomplaints over issues at the municipal-level. As a result, it w&decided that a better understanding of the workings of local government is needed

-so that these complaints can be more effectively made. Roberts also expressed hope that relations could be developed betWeen CitiZeIlS’ gOUpS and the Ulli,vers$y community. : The topics to be presented are as follows : -history of local government in Ontario: -forms and structures of municipal government in Ontario. -the role of the province. -how the municipal corporation

Changing women’s attitudes ron’t change a thing; we need a olitical strategy as well, says Fern filler, a UW political science pro’ :ssor. “Canada’s‘Why Not?’ camaign seems to be based o d the idea rat all women have to do to thieve equality is to change their ttitudes ,” she says. “I am not putting down Dnsciousness-raising. It is a first :ep. But the fact is, women don’t ave the organizational backup rey need to really change their tuation. ’ ’ Miller is teaching a course at U W lis winter which includes both a

study of the social structures which contribute to the continuing subjugation of women and an investigation of strategies for bringing about change. Called “Women and Politics” (Political Science 102E), it will be given Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm which should attract part-time women students from the community. However, she does not see it as a “women only” type of thing and hopes that men will be interested in the class too. The subjugation of women will be studied as it occurs in marriage, religion, economics, language and mythology.

She also said that she plans to continue her fight against the firing. Indications that Forest -would not be rehired upon termination of her contract first ‘appeared in November, 1975, when the management committee of the human relations department recommended that her contract be allowed to terminate when it expires this June.

The UW student ‘council voted n Tuesday in favour of a motion * tiling on students to support the .ational Union of Students (NUS). In effect the motion urges stuents to vote “yes” to the upcomig referendum on whether or not re Federation of Students afliates with NUS. ’ The vote was unanimous allough a number of councillors ab:ained,. Shane Roberts, chairperson of le federation’s board of educaon, spoke in favour of the m,otion. With an increasing tendency on re part of the federal government ) investigate cutbacks in their inolvement in the financing of postscondary education, Roberts exressed fear that the provincial ovemment would follow suit. He [aimed that a single representative f all post-secondary students in Canada would be more effective in egotiations with the federal govmment than a myriad of delegaons from each campus. Federation president John Shor111also spoke in favour of the moon. Mark Wills\, an arts councillor; Tarned that the organization of a rational Union of Students camaign could deter the organizing of ampuses on an individual basis. NUS was organized in 1972 in rder to provide a focus for the in:rchange of ideas, as a centre for ollective student action to fight for olicies that benefit the students of lanadian post-secondary instituons and as a lobbying research, nd information service. So far NUS has concentrated its ctivity on the student aid s&cue, which it claims is “grossly indequate’ and designed to prevent ersons from low income families *om gaining access to university ducation. It has been heavily involved in re student housing issue- and has stablished the first student housig lobby in six years. \ ’ NUS also initiated discussion on re unprecedented low level of stu-,+. r

dent summer unemployment. In addition, it has presented a brief to the joint parliamentary committee on the green paper. The highest- -decision-making ’ body in NUS is the general meeting of members, which occurs at least twice yearly. The executive body of NUS is called the central committee and is co posed of provincial delegates; ,J o members-at-large; and a treas’ urer . There is a national office at Suite 207, 227 Laurier Ave., Ottawa, where three full-time staff members, work under the supervision of the central committee. In its two years ‘of existence, NUS has grown to represent over a third of a million Canadian students’. Due to’ inflation, increasing service expenditures and more coast to coast communication, the NUS per student fee has been raised from thirty cents to one dollar.

There are “enormous barriers” to women becoming professionals in any field, or to women assumingleadership roles in business or government or assuming any other traditionally men’s roles Miller feels. ‘ ‘The hard .facts are that there are tremendous pressures. on such w.omen,” she says. “They are practically driven out.

acting chairman of the department Arthur Wiener stated-in part that: “We have considered your request for advice regarding Dr. Forest’s reappointmen? and have taken note of your own view that the appoint. ment should not be renewed. ,We agree with this view . . . .” Forest charged at that time that she is being fired because she is a Marxist-Leninist>, and termed the action a ‘ ‘political+%urge”. She said that she had never been notified that she was being reviewed, and claimed that the review procedures ignored student opinion. (She pointed out that both she and Wiener teach the same first-year course and said that she has 55 students in the course while he has seven. Forest also commented upon the report to senate which recommends that the department of human relations and counselling studies should be closed down. She said that “every department has its problems” and that cutting the human relations department is just an “excuse; a way for the university to save money.” “There are two issues: the political purge and the cutbacks,” Forest said. “And the faculty,must unionize; that’s the only way to protect itself.” University president Burt Matthews stated earlier in the week that not renewing the contracts of faculty who are on ,definite-term appointments is a normal procedure . He said that Forest was among the 15 or 20 faculty members whose contracts were not being renewed, and added that this was not an unusually large number.

For example, had Rosemary Brown been chosen leader of-the NDP, Miller would favor women Liberals and Progressive Conservatives crossing party lines to vote NDP at the next federal election. Or, should Flora MacDonald be chosen national leader at the next PC convention she would favor Liberal and NDP women voting Progressive-Conservative. _

“If you can’t switch your vote you’ll never be able to exert any political influence,” she says. “It is in the nature of the political process that the poli&ians worry first and foremost about the people who switch. Those they are sure of don’t usually have much influence on the politicians. “So, until women start voting as ’ a block, or at. least start appearing t,o do so, the male politicians who are the ones with power now aren’t going to pay too,much attention to \ them.” Miller believes the major prob- lem is a split between what might be called “career women”. and “women in the, home.” The two groups are gradually drawing to-g&her; she feels, with more and more women going into the marketplace, for at least portions of their lives, along with the wages-’ for-housework campaign. Until the very structures of society are changed, Miller warns, consciousness-raising can in itself be a frustrating experience.

Anarchy

& chaos

‘Red’ Emma smashes Heaving the bomb, brandishing protest signs, hurling ideological slogans and romping in bed-once again the media, this time exemplified by CBC, has succeeded in confirming all the popular misconceptions of those “fanatical deviants”-anarchists. The play “Red Emma” performed by the Toronto Free Theatre Troupe, aired last Sunday evening, proved to be a shallow melodrama distorting and sensationalizing a few episodes from Emma Goldman’s early life. The play opens with a starryeyed Emma Goldman seeking consort with fellow anarchists in an unconvincing Sach’s Cafe in New York City. The year, historically speaking, is 1889. The characters, or more aptly the caricatures, are introduced in all their pale simplicity. Johann Most, upholding his oftrepeated refrain “I am king of the anarchists” rises from the table and rails against the kings of the capitalists. Sasha launches into an endless succession of puritanical denunciations from the pulpit of revolutionary righteousness. Helen Minkin smiles graciously in the background. And Fedya, alas poor Fedya suffers the grossest distortion of them all. Leeringly enveloping Emma in his arms, he croons “I am an anarchist, I believe in free love.” These cardboard apparitions are shunted around from scene to scene, never to evince further complexity or depth. Emma herself appears as the hotly contested cupcake of drool-

ing male lusts. (That is an exaggeration. The action never becomes that spicy. Even the bedroom scene-Sasha and Emma crowing and making bumps in the blankets-inspires one to ponder the whyfors of crocheting.) Emma Goldman was one of the most vociferous feminists of her age. She would have spewed fire had she seen herself depicted as the passive observer of an altercation between Most and Sasha-an altercation over her own disinclination to become Most’s bedmate. She would vehemently debunk the petty motif of jealous rivalry which permeated the relationship of Fedya and Sasha in the play. To cite the introduction of Red Emma Speaks : “I believe in your freedom to love,” said the principaled Berkman (Sasha), giving Emma’s and Fedya’s love his blessing; jealousy, he maintained, deserved no place in an anarchist’s heart. And Goldman, who had nothing but contempt for the demeaning notion that a woman must belong to one man as a piece of property, admired Berkman all the more for his largeness of spirit.”

The episodes culled for the one hour production smacked of Arthur Hailey sensationalism. (Of course the characters’ one dimensional fanaticism in “Red Emma” would lead one to expect any outrageous manifestation .) The anarchists in Goldman’s autobiography, Living My Life, do not go around shouting ‘Attentat!’ and then thump to the floor open orificed . The political assassination of the industrialist Frick, Emma’s desperate and driven attempt at prostitution, the horsewhipping of Johann Most (probably the only time Emma ever inflicted personal injury on anyone)-they’re all here. Together, of course, with free love-a lofty ideal embraced by Goldman, who wrote “Love is the

strongest and deepest element in all life.” In “Red Emma” we see it reduced to wild do-your-own-thing bedroom skirmishes. The build-up to the attentat, a violent deed of propaganda that was intended to arouse the people against their capitalist oppressors, curiously enough provided an unintentional interlude of comic relief. A collage of old prints, bolstered by a resounding chorus of bullfrog blaring, described the steel strike in Homestead, Pennsylvania and the ensuing repression by an army of Pinkerton goons. A dozen died and hundreds were injured. We are introduced to a “Perils of Pauline” vaudeville-type villian, Henry Clay Frick, manager of the Carnegie Steel Corporation. He is only too ripe for assassination. And our heroes come through. The play fails miserably to convey the solemn intensity surrounding the trio’s (Sasha, Fedya and Emma’s) fateful decision to commit this self-sacrificial act. Our next ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ sequence portrays Emma’s last resort plunge into prostitution-an effort to procure funds for a revolver. Goldman describes the inner turmoil that consumed her as she walked 14th street for the first time : ‘I wanted to take flight, run back to my room, tear off my cheap finery, and scrub myself clean. But a voice kept ringing in my ears: “You must hold out; Sasha-his act-everything will be lost if you fail.” I continued my tramp, but something stronger than my reason would compel me to increase my pace the moment a man came near me. One of them was rather insistent, and I fled. By eleven o’clock I was utterly exhausted. My feet hurt from the high heels, my head throbbed. I was close to tears from fatigue and disgust with my inabil-

-The CIA needs to< be- ‘destabilized’ No one with any awareness of cold war politics could have been too surprised upon hearing Gerald Ford offer his version of the Domino Theory as a rationale for beefing up US aid to Cambodia- and South Vietnam. America, as the foremost imperial power, has worked with a remarkably broad definition of its national security interests when justifying its international behaviour. Arguing that they wish no lasting political hegemony over the cultures whose actions threaten this security, American men of state claim to labour only to maintain a world order “receptive” to American business interests-or those of its economic ‘lookalikes-and in practise it has spawned a virulent campaign against communism as a social alternative.

tnam, Brazil and’s0 on-were followed by an unsettling silence. Indeed, up until the recent expose of the CIA-organized coup inchile, the agency and its directors enjoyed a holiday from criticism throughout what may some day be seen as their most active and effective period. Now even that fiasco, an intervention so callous and bloody as to be offensive to even the dulled sensitivities of cold-war liberals, is being buried under columns of print devoted to argument. over the CIA’s right to spy on American citizens.

Private hands

Epoch of affluence Throughout an epoch of uninterrupted affluence this persuasion gave rise to a round of military interventions and support operations from Korea to Vietnam, making the threat of American presence an element of political life throughout the third world. Sandwiched between the need for financial and technical assistance in order to achieve economic independence and the realization that it was contingent upon remaining in America’s good graces; these nations evolved their futures around some accommodation of American interests. The naked ‘threat of military force has hampered the choice of a spectrum of responses to the problems of feudalism and development, one defined as communist but . in practise including even sharply nationalistic or agrarian reform movements. The horrors suffered by theVietnamese stand constant witness to the price potentially to be paid for the right of self-determination. . Public comprehension of these events has been largely determined by the reportage of the international press, from whose ac4 counts the readerlearns mainly of the militi ary dimensions of America’s world presence, of the country’s armaments, its readiness to meet the communist threat by means of war, its intervention against “aggressors.” Much of this information is purveyed in morality play terms, objective accounts of

Redress for this condition will come only from private hands: for those who take up this task, there is ammunition aplenty in three unique testimonies that, read conjointly, provide the first inside glimpse of agency operations. They are The CIA ,an,d the Cult oj‘ Intelligence, by Victor Marchetti and John Marks: Inside the Company:CIA Diary, by Philip Agee; and The Secret Team by L. Fletcher Prouty. They present, respectively, the first full account of the operating structures, budget and scope of agency activities; the first day-today account of the operating practises of a Covert Actionagent in Latin America; and the first outline of the liaison and control functions in foreign affairs work centralized pithin the CIA by its ruling clique. The first two are written by ex-agents, Marchetti having been a high level officer in intelligence work (the agency’s stated function) and Agee having worked as a secret agent in foreign countries intervening in their affairs (as both authors would agree, the agency’s actual function). The last piece is written by a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel with inside knowledge of the Vietnam war. It is a suggestive but less factual portrayal of the upper echelons of the “intelligence community,” one that provides hints about the inner regions of decision making but is constrained by the paranoia of its author.

But does that fact, for all its significance, bstantiate the agency’s independence to ape the campaign against communism and dictate the development of its fronts? ’ Harry S.

’ More importantly they make the case that the CIA’s responsibility for intelligence gathering and coordination is a shield behind which is enacted the agency’s prime purpose: Covert Action. Covert Action operations are those that make a surreptitious intervention in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation, affairs which by international law and diplomatic agreement lie outside their legal right to influence. The scale of CIA operations of this nature is clearly global, the only restriction being that each undertaking carry a reasonable likelihood of success and that it be developed so as to be “plausibly deniable” by those whose legitimacy would be undermined by association with it. By means of these precautions the agency has served as ’ ‘a secret instrument of the Presidency and a handful of powerful men” who use it to operate in regions where open and formal intervention would reveal America’s true profile. To America, appearance is all; that its purpose is furthered directly by the favourable resolution of some inexplicable domestic chaos in a banana republic (and that it recognizes the ruling junta as the legitimate government four days later), should appear to be the product of good fortune alone.

Einstein

on socialism:

We are all aware of Dr. Einstein as theformulator of the theory of relativity. But we are generally uninformed as t6 his thinking iri other spheres. In the following &trticle he relates his ideas on socialism. This article originally appeared in May, 7949 as an introduction to the first issue of the independent socialist magazine Monthly Review.

\

Is it advisable for one who is not anexpert on economic and social issues to express views on the 3 I believe for a number of subject of socialism. reasons that it is.. Let us first consider the questionfrom the noint of view of scientific knowledge. It might appear that there are no essential methodological differences. between astronomy and economics: scientists in both fields attempt to discover laws of general acceptability for a circumscribed group of phenomena in order to make the interconnection of these phenomena as clearly understandable as possible. But in reality such methodological differences do exist. The discovery of general laws in the field of economics is made difficult by the circumstance that observed economic phenomena are often affected by many factors which are very hard to evaluate separately. In addition, the experience which has accumulated since the beginning of the so-called civilized period of human history has-as is well known-been largely influenced and limited by causes which are by no means exclusively economic in nature. For example, most of the‘major states of history owed their existence to conquest. The conquering peoples established themselves, legally and economically, as the privileged class of the conquered country. They seized for themselves a monopoly of the land ownership and appointed a priesthood from among their own ranks. The priests, in control of education, made the class division of society into a permanent institution and created a svstem of values bv which the neonle were ’ thenceforth, to a large extent unconsciously, guided in their social behavior. But historic tradition is, so to speak, of yesterday; nowhere have we really overcome what Thorstein Veblen called “the predatory phase” of human de-

velopment. The observable economic facts belong to that phase and even such laws as we can derive Corn them are not applicable to other phases. Since the real purpose of socialism is precisely to overcome and advance beyond the predatory phase of human development, economic science in its present state can throw little light on the socialist society / of the future. Second, socialism is directed towards a socialethical end. Science, however, cannot create ends and, even less, instillthem in hclman beings ; science, at most, can supply the means by which to attain certain ends. But the ends themselves are conceived by personalities with lofty ethical ideals and-if these ends are not stillborn, but vital and are adopted and carried forward by those vigorousmany human beings who, half unconsciously, determine the slow evolution of society. For these reasons, we should be on our guard not to overestimate science and scientific methods when it is a question of human problems; and we should not assume that experts are the only ones who have a right to express themselves on questions affecting the organization of society. Innumerable voices have been asserting for some time now that human society is passing through a crisis, that its stability has been gravely shattered. It is characteristic of such a situation that individuals feel indifferent or even hostile toward the group, small or large, to which they belong. In order to illustrate my meaning, let me record here a personal experience. I recently discussed with an intelligent and well-disposed man the threat of another war, which in my opinion would seriously endanger the existence of mankind, and I remarked that only a supra-national organization would offer protection from that danger. Thereupon my visitor, very calmly and coolly, said to me: “Why are you so deeply opposed to the disappearance of the human race?” I am sure that as little as a century ago no one would have so lightly made a statement of this kind. It is the statement of a man who has striven in vain to attain an equilibrium within himself and has more or less lost hope of succeeding. It is the expression of a painful solitude and isolation from which so many people are suffering in these days. What is the cause? Is there a way out?

a S/OW ew

It is easy to raise such questions, but difficult to answer them with any degree of assurance. I must try, however, as best I can, although I am very conscious of the fact that our feelings and strivings are often contradictory and obscure and that they

cannot be expressed in easy and simple formulas. Man is, at one and the same time, a solitary being and a social being. As a solitary being, he attempts to protect his own existence and that of those who are closest to him, to satisfy his personal desires, and to develop his innate abilities. As a social being, he seeks to gain the recognition and affection of his fellow human beings, to share in their pleasures, to comfort them in their sorrows; and to improve their conditions of life. Only the existence of these varied, frequently conflicting,

strivings accounts for the special character-of man, and their specific combination determines the extent to which an individual can achieve an inner equilibrium and can contribute to the well being of society. It is quite possiblt that the relative strength of these two drives is, in the main, fixed by inheritance. But the personality that finally emerges is largely formed by the environment in which a man happens to find himself during his development, by the structure of the society in which he grows up, by the tradition of that society, and by its appraisal of particular types of behavior. The abstract concept “society” means to the individual human being the sum total of his direct and. indirect relations to his contemporaries and to all the peopleof earlier generations. The individual is able to think, feel, strive, and work by himself; but he depends so much upon society in his physical, intellectual, and emotional existence that it is impossible to think of him or to understand him, outside the framework of society. It is “society” which provides man with food, clothing, a home, the tools of work, language, the forms of thought, and most of the content of thought; his life is made possible through the labor and the accomplishments of the.many millions past and present who are all hidden behind the small word “society.” It is evident, therefore, that the dependence of the individual upon society is a fact of nature which

cannot be abolished-just as in the case of ants and bees. However, while the whole life process of ants and bees is fixed down to the smallest detail by, rigid, hereditary instincts. the social pattern and interrela-

In relatively the goods which are

indispensable to their continued existence, an extreme division of labor and a highly-centralized productive apparatus are absolutely necessary. The time-which, looking back, seems so idyllic-is gone forever when individuals or relatively small groups could be completely selfsufficient. It is only a slight exaggeration to say that mankind constitutes even now a planetary community of production and consumption. I have now reached the point where I may indicate briefly what to me constitutes the essence of the crisis of our time. It concerns the relationship of the individual to society. The individual has become more conscious than ever of his dependence upon society. But he does not experience this dependence as a-positive asset, as an organic tie, as a protective force, but rather as a threat to his natural rights, or even to his-economic existence. Moreover, his position in society is such that the egotistical drives of his make-up are constantly being accentuated, while his social drives, which are by nature weaker, progressively deteriorate. All human beings, whatever their position in society, are suffering from this process of deterioration. Unknowingly prisoners of their own egotism, they feel insecure, lonely, and deprived of the naive, simple, and unsophisticated enjoyment of life. Man can find meaning in life, short and perilous as it is, only through devoting himself to society. The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of the evil. We see before us a huge communitypf producers the members of which are unceasingly striving to deprive each other of the fruits of their collective labor-not by force, but on the whole in faithful compliance with legally established rules. In this respect, the entire productive capacity that is needed for producing consumer goods as well as additional capital goods -may legally be, and for the most part are, the private property of individuals. For the sake of simplicity, in the discussion that follows I shall call “workers” all those who do not share in the ownership of the means of production-although this. does not quite correspond to the customary use of the term. The owner of the means of production is in a position to purchase the labor power of the worker. By using the means of production, the worker produces new goods which become the property of the capitalist. The essential point about this process is the relation between what the worker produces and what he is paid, both measured in terms of red- value.

Insofar as the labor contract is “free”, what the worker receives is determined not by the real value of the goods he produces, but by his minimum needs and by the capitalists’ requirements for labor power in relation to the number of workers competing for jobs. It is important to understand that even in theory the payment of the worker is not determined by the value of his product. Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of the smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true-since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the populations. Moreover, under existing conditions private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights. The situation prevailing in an economy based on the private ownership- of capital is thus characterized by two main principles: first, means of production (capital) are privately owned and the owners dispose of them as they see fit; second, the labor contract is free. Of course, there is no such thing as a pure capitalist society in this sense. In particular, it should be noted that the workers, through long and bitter political struggles, have succeeded in securing a somewhat improved form of the “free labor contract” for certain categories of workers. But taken as a whole, the present day economy does not differ much from “pure” capitalism. Production is carried on for profit, not for use. There is no provision that all those able and willing to work will always be in a position to find employment; an “army of unemployed” almost always exists. The worker is constantly in fear of losing his job. Since unemployed and poorly paid workers do

not provide a profitable market, the production of consumers’ goods is restricted, and great hardship is the consequence. Technological progress frequently results in more unemployment rather than in an easing of the burden of work for all. The profit motive, in conjunction with competition among capitalists, is responsible for an instability in the accumulation and utilization of capital which leads to increasingly severe depressions. Unlimited competition leads to a huge waste of labor, and to that crippling of the social consciousness of individuals which I mentioned before. This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive succes,s as a preparation for his future career. I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion. A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society. j Nevertheless, it is necessary to remember that a planned economy is not yet socialism. A planned economy as such may be accompanied by the complete enslavement of the individual. The achievement of socialism requires the solution of some extremely difficult socio-political problems: how is it possible, in view of the far-reaching centralization of political and economic power, to prevent bureaucmcy from becoming all-powerful and overweening? How can the rights of the individual be protected and therewith a democratic counterweight to the power of bureuacracy be assured? Clarity about the aims and problems of socialism is of greatest significance in our age of transition. Since, under present circumstances, free and unhindered discussion of these problems’has come under a powerful taboo, I consider the foundation of this magazine to be an important public service.

Brian Eno is certainly one of the most extreme of modern musicians. By his own admission he is crazy. On top of that he holds claim to an amazing list of eccentric collections, hobbies, and activities. Eno, (as he is 4usually referred to), is proud of his pornographic card collection; has suffered a physical breakdown after some 30 hours of sexual activities involving no fewer than six women (Eno is lovingly referred to as “the one man orgy” by many of his fans); and he is the owner of a reasonable recording studio in his home.

One of these nights and a lost generation The Eagles, recently touted as one of America’s top groups, certainly have improved their lot since their start as session musi5ans and back up band to Linda Ronstadt. 7 Although performing with one of the top female acts in the music business is in itself no mean achievement, credibility as a headliner by themselves tends to reaffirm the accolades given to the Eagles.

The group in 1975 established itself as a solid single act managing to put three singles on the top one lundred, a feat equalled by no i Ither group during the past year. Their latest album “One of These Nights” on Asylum Records

proves without a doubt that ‘this five man Southern Californian band indeed has a wealth of talent. The title tune, “One of These Nights” and a second song “Lyin’ Eyes”, have already sold over a million copies apiece, and a third cut, “Take It To The Limit” is currently receiving much air time. A lot of mileage out of one al bum ! Seven of the eight selections on the album were written by group members. This constitutes somewhat of a change from past recordings which featured cuts - written by Jackson _ Browne and other writers who worked closely with the group. The Eagles consistently rely on

crisp, clean instrumentation and superb four part harmony. Their contact with session musicians gives the album an added bonus as “friends” such as Jim Ed Norman, Al Kooper, David Bromberg and the Royal Martian Orchestra join in on the record to augment the Eagles ’ talent. “One of These Nights” is an excellent album with the only drawback being the lack of numbers of cuts. No doubt though, quality makes up for quantity. An album which may rate at the other end of the scale is Elliot Murphy’s “Lost Generation” on R.C.A. b Murphy, a resident of Long Island New York, impressed few as

worthwhile, and Jon Smith’s sax solo on “Looking Back” is commendable. For the most part though, the overpowering percussion work by Jim Gordon and the din of full treble guitars tend to drown out the already weak vocal performance of Murphy on many, selections. “Bittersweet” is one of the few songs which escapes this drawback and where Murphy’s voice is fully audible. On a whole “Lost Generation” seems generally raucous, and of poor quality with tunes being repetitive in beat thus making the album somewhat of a chore to listen to in its entirety.

an opening act at the recent Sha Na Na concert. He fares only slightly better with his efforts on his second album. Billed as a rock and roll artist, Murphy’s style and format seem to fall short of filling such a mould. Ten selections all written by Murphy can be categorized as songs of social comment and personal experience. Murphy’s voice at times is reminiscent of Bob Dylan especially on the tracks entitled “Hollywood” and “Visions of the Night”. The style of the Band is also evident on some of the cuts.

The UW “A” Chess Team continued its remarkable winning streak by defeating the formidable London “A” Chess Team with a 4-2 score. The undefeated UW “A” Team now holds the lead in the League. _ The UW “B” Chess Team also recorded a 3-1 victory over the Hamilton “B” Chess Team. Less successful, however, was the UW ’ No. 1 “B” Team with a 3-l loss against the highly successful Burlington “B” Chess Team. The brilliant victory by Harry Kaminker of the UW “A”ChessTeam reflected highly on his skill, as he crushed Peter Murray whose 2217 rating puts him in the top twenty-five Canadian Chess players.

plies to this fact. Keeping a secret smacks of the primary schoolyard. It is not a solid basis for an adult answer, yet staunchly literate people continue to tread on eggshells over this point. In the book, a lot of pages are given over to experiments, empirical proofs, and personal stories that surely cannot be ignored or disputed. The experimentors cited are very careful to include control groups of non-meditators in their designs. Some interesting and significant results are shown to exist with meditators. Changes in physiology and psychological set are distinct and unquestionable. But nothing significant has been done in the way of getting results with a factorial design that includes transcendental meditators, non-meditators, and meditators using their own sound but otherwise practising a technique similar to TM. This is in no way a glaring fault of the TM method or of the book. It is an omission, though, to which the answer might give TM’ers a more solid footing when somebody asks, “Why pay?” For me it’s a simple matter of commerce. I pay an amount of money in exchange for something. Don’t we all? We pay for vacations, for our education, for our cars, for anything we need or think we need. And I put out 115 bucks, before I ever read the book, to learn a skill that has been more rewarding than I could spell out in ten pages or less. I would never have evolved the discipline to sit quietly for two sessions of twenty minutes a day on my own. So I paid to find out how to do it with ease. As a meditator, that’s my answer. No silliness about mantras and secrets. If you’re a free spirit and you can override a little preachiness, a few childish mysteries, and some unimportant omissions, the TM book is mostly solid stuff to read. Apart from their central theme, the authors poke away at stodgy psychological theories and rip into relevant issues in our society with a light, sure touch. Breaking traditional molds is always an exhilarating experience. Start breaking, you’ll probably enjoy the trip. -robert

iIndividuaLs Re. your article (pg. 5, Dec. 5), I would like to chastise the Chevron for their indiscriminant publication of the names of certain professors that Math Society is having problems with in respect to our course evaluation, ANTI-CAL. Math Society considers the names of those who oppose us to be internal to the Society, and can see no useful purpose in the exposing of said individuals. We would eventually like to win these individuals over to our side, and can only see your actions as a hinderance to this process. In future I hope the chevron will show more discretion in respect to course evaluations as at present .they are not on as firm ground as would be liked. President,

Inverted Hanham Regarding - your _ article entitled ‘Inverted Hanham,, we feel it is our duty to inform YOU of the unreadability of the account of the game. Not only was the analysis inadequate but the account of the moves was extremely erroneous. As exampIes we bring to your attention moves no.7, 17, 19, 21, 24, 32 and 36!!!!! Among other mistakes we find it inconceivable that the Queen possesses properties of the Knight. We feel it is useless to waste time, energy and space in your newspaper on a article that is so degrading to the honourable game of Chess. Has Robert Inkol considered putting his energies toward a game more suiting his intelligence? How about C heckers?? ! ! . Peter Smarda Kevin Nonomura Robert Gillanders

Proposed gun-control legislation by the Federal government- faces the similar problem long felt by gun-control supporters in the United States powerful gun and hunting lobbies here oppose any gun legislation measures which may restrict the ever increasing availability of handguns and longguns to the public. In Canada, much of the pro-gun legislation is supported by U.S. gun magazines and large retail outlets which benefit by the large sales of firearms. Thus it is imperative that the majority has an organized voice to support the need for firearm legislation.

Government nd universities FURTHER TO HENRY CRAPO’S LETTER TO FEEDBACK -an effort to understand why the Gov’t no longer likes us (the universities) I remember as a small child watching T.V. and hearing ads asking us to give to the University of our choice. The ad announced that university was the panacea to everything, the confirmation and fulfilment of the Americanadian Dream. I remember in Grade 12 hearing the principal lecture us on how much extra earning

power would be ours for every year of educationpasthighschool. “Youcan’tgetajob without a B .A.” I was told and since I was an “A” student, the idea of moving through the University system became inevitable. But now the rhetoric changes. When the government’s hopes for the universities did not material& they suddenly contend that the lavish growth which they themselves instigated is socially wasteful. They now say that an education is more a personal value than a social value. I would like to ask how a personal value can ever NOT be a social value. I would also like to suggest that what the government really means is that the sort of values which emerge from the universities are not to the government’s liking. The university tends to reenforce several very different kinds of attitudes. The value of the university to society lies primarily in the dispersion of these attitudes throughout society. The value to the individual is something that should become clearer in a minute. ONE: The university leads its graduates to have higher pecuniary expectations than the norm. TWO: The University leads one segment of graduates to think of themselves as a privileged class; gives them a big ego and makes it harder for the government to push them around. THREE : The university creates in some students a more articulate criticism of society, social policy and government which is always embarassing to the gov’t. FOUR: The university gives some students three or four years freedom from the work force and if it also leads them to challenge certain of the ethics of the work world they might spend these years perfecting an alternate life-style and become radical drop-outs which the government finds VERY dangerous. FIVE: The university takes a few bright lower class kids and makes them middle class, thus raising their expectations and capabilities and depleting the ranks of menial labourers. SIX: The university, in its faculty, creates a class of people who can criticise from relative safety, thus undermining the government’s authority. For a Tory government, all these things are bad. They all tend to weaken the dominance of the dominant classes either through frontal assault or by making too many potential members. They take timid and submissive high school students and turn some of them into vocal and often effective social critics, many of whom are (heaven forbid) of a socialist inclination. Thus the government of Ontario would probably be quite happy to see the universities shrivel up and die. But not quite. We still need engineers, we still have to provide replacements for the economy. So we’ll make university more expensive to filter out lower class elements and we’ll make the arts and social sciences less profitable to the institution so that they’ll be deemphasised. We’ll make those radical kids and those potential radicals buckle under economic pressure and submit to the authoritarian ethos of the workplace just to remind them who’s in control here. FACT: University graduates are a bad bet for the assembly line. Few employers will hire you even if you have a single year of university because they know you’ll be bored to tears, react negatively or quit. Education threatens the labour supply. That in itself is enough justification for the government to strongly resist growth in Universities. ‘The more education that exists, the more difficult it will be to maintain an economy based on exploitation because the educated person is more likely to see through and resist exploitation. FACT: A gulf exists between the welleducated (university grad) and the undereducated (high school graduation or less) in terms of the books and magazines they read, the radio and T.V. programmes! they listen to, the parties they vote for and even the cars they buy; not to mention the jobs they vie for and the economic power they wield. All of this threatens social order, is detrimental to social cohesion and makes more

difficult to enforce a policy of economic oppression. (Economic oppression here refers basically to the mechanisms whereby labour is kept in check by the carrot and stick mechanism of punishing anyone who makes noise and offering at least a subsistance income to those who obey. The price of food is boredom.) I think the government sees us, or some of us as very threatening, lest we become too numerous. A big question in my mind concerns the legitimacy of their fear. The next couple of years will demonstrate this. If we, the university community, allow the government to split our ranks along faculty student lines and get us fighting among ourselves, and if we, the university community are unable to effectively resist further cut-backs in government funding, and if we, the university community are unable to effect a more economically representative sample among the student body-then the governments fears will have been unfounded. If we don’t stand up to the Ontario Government and prevent this castration of academe then we are only a vaguely potential menace, one too naive and stupid to become anything else. The university of today is a child of the Ontario Government, some are adopted, some are legitimate. But the time has come to grow up and stand up to daddy who doesn’t like our long hair and independant thinking. If we are not willing and able to do this, we are not worth taking seriously.

Nom de plume Charlotte Bronte did it. Also Emily B. and, heaven help us, Madame Amantine Lucile Aurore Dudevant. But I didn’t. That is, I did not, in my article on Hans Jewinski’s book, Poet Cop, which appeared in the chevron Dec. 5, write under cover of a nom de plume. Why should I? In the unenlightened past women wrote under men’s names, in the belief that their writings would be more fairly received if readers thought them penned by a man. Hopefully this expediency has now passed into unlamented oblivion. Indeed, the chevron, in its strange mistake, has tacitly acknowledged that this is so. My amazed annoyance is partially abatted by the fact that my article was attributed to a much-esteemed collegue, Judi Hurst. One could not ask for a better putative pseudonym, however oddly arrived at. 4ul ia Schneider A thousand pardons! We did not intend to associate you with any of those illustrious persons whom you mention. It does help us considerably in correctly identifying a writer, however, if they sign their work (which you did not). An article in the same vein had previously been received from Judi Hurst, and your article was apparently and wrongly linked with that one. -lettitor

Lionism and Israel I

The article you ran in the December 5th issue titled What is Zionism demands correction. The first part of the article gives a concise and well written summary of the principles of Political Zionism, only one of four historical Zionist movements. The rest of the article, written by a very small but vocal group calling themselves “The Alliance of Non-Zionist Jews” is filled with half truths, misconceptions and clearly shows a lack of understanding of the forces at work in Israel today. The following statements found in the article, although simple and straightforward on the surface, are misleading in their childlike simplicity . 1. “The Israeli leaders have turned their state into a military fortress at war with all the nations surrounding it.” It is true that all young people in Israel, upon finishing high school are drafted into the army, women serving two years, men serving three. It is also true that most would prefer not to have

to serve in the army, but the authors don mention the endless threats of annihilatic made by Arab leaders and the call for tl destruction of the State of Israel found in tl cevenant of the Palestinian Terror group the largest being the P.L.O. Unwritten al the savage incidents of murder, perpetrate against the men, women, and children ( Israel in shopping markets, bus depot! schools, air-planes; movie theatres, bordc areas, hotels and even the Munich Olyn pits! Is it any wonder that although Israe youth despise war and wishes to be rid of tf army, draft dodging and desertion is all bl non-existant. 2. “Israel’s ‘black skinned’ Jews are suffe ing from oppression and misery in tl white-dominated social structure .” This is common misconception of one of Israel social problems because it is a description ( an Israeli phenomena in North America terms. In North America there occurs race-base prejudice against some black people. To sa the same of Israel is grossly misleadinl There are some Jews of North African de: cent (tending to be darker skinned than Jew of European descent), who indeed live j slums and lead miserable lives. To say th: they live in misery because of a racist Israe society is undeniably false. Between 1949 and 1951 the newly bor Jewish State absorbed 30,000 jews fro1 Morocco, 13,000 from Tunisia, 30,000 fro] Libya, 16,000 from Egypt and 150,000 othc Jews from the Arab World. They were dr ven from their homes and fled to Israc homeless and penniless. Thrown into western style democracy that they could nc understand and deprived of a means of se1 support, many of these Jewish refugees su fered terrible hardships. Under that straii traditional family ties broke down accon panied by juvenile delinquency, prostitt tion, crime and poverty. It was as a result ( those trying times that slums and povert exists in Israel today, not as a result of r: cism. 3. “Despite Israel’s claim to be democratit it still has in force a series of emergent regulations . . . characterized . . . as ‘faci laws’ .” This statement is not specific thereby vague and meaningless. If there any doubt that Israel is a democracy should be understood that there are close ten political parties in Israel ranging from tl Moscow aligned Communist Party to tl ultra-orthodox religious party Agudat Yi rael. The major political parties print dai! newspapers and there are two independal dailies as well: Ma’ariv and Ha’aretz. Tl news media enjoys complete freedom of tlpress except where publication of certaj military information may endanger nation security. 4. “The Israeli State, since its inception has been allied with most reactionary force on a world scale.” This is one of many e: amples of the half-truths and oversimplific; tions spread by Israel’s enemies. At its cre; tion in 1948, the State of Israel desired t become part of the non-aligned third worlc The young state sent agricultural and med cal advisors to several black African Statt and it was not uncommon to see young Afr can students at Israeli universities or to fin them studying the makeup of kibbutz. Th has all changed in the last few years unfortt nately . Chad for example, broke off diI lomatic relations with Israel in 1972 an shortly thereafter received a loan c $9O,OOO,OOO from Libya. Several African nr tions have broken diplomatic links in a sim lar manner. Another demonstration of Israel’s desir to be politically and economically indeper dant is its improving relations with the Euro pean Economic Community. Only recent1 did Israel achieve preferential trading statu with the E .E .C., a position attained by vex few nations outside of Europe, climaxin more than fifteen years of improving rel: tions with Western Europe. Zionism is the national and social liberr tion movement of the Jewish People and I: rael is its physical manifestation. Israel wi negotiate with any representative of th Palestinians not dedicated to Israel’s dc struction. Michael

Zionism? I see that the Chevron, in its unending quest for truth, has once again ‘presented one entire side of a contentious issue. It asks the question “What is Zionism?“, and proceeds to answer the question by quoting AC. Forrest, a notorious anti-Zionist, and the “Alliance of Non-Zionist Jews”. No effort is made to get the opinion of a Zionist supporter, or, for that matter, a neutral observer on the issue. You might as well write an article on “What is Communism” and devote the article to quotes from Joseph McCarthy (read Forrest) and Andrei Sakharov (read ANZJ). At any rate, since the Chevron has absolutely no interest in facts, someone else will have to set the record straight. The State of Israel was created at 4:OO p.m. on Friday, May 15,1948. Palestine had been partitioned into predominantly Jewish and predominantly Arab areas, much as India and Pakistan would later be partitioned . The Jewish area, of course, became Israel. For eight whole hours, there was no Palestinian refugee problem. Then, the armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Jordan invaded Israel, entirely without provocation. As a result, the Israeli War of Independence had to be fought. Israel, attacked from all sides, managed not only to survive, but to capture some of the territory originally partitioned tq the Arabs. The Arabs in these areas did not wish to stay under Israeli rule and/or stay on a heated battleground, so they left. Thus began the Palestinian refugee problem-not a consequence of “Zionist imperialism”, but a direct result of ARAB / aggression. Shafik Al-hout states in his article: “I was chased out of Israel because I am not a Jew-that is Zionism”. If that is indeed Zionism, the Zionists are doing a terrible job of it-more than one Israeli in nine is Moslem (over 300,000 in all). Incidentally, one of the articles in the PLO manifesto calls for the expulsion from Palestine of all Jews except those who came before the “Zionist invasion” -November 2, 1917, the date of the signing of the Balfour declaration. So much for Al-hout’s statement that he wants to “live in peace with the Jews.” As for his claim that “the only way to co-exist is to live in democracy despite religious differences’ ’ , I merely wish to know after which Arab state he intends to pattern his democracy ? Egypt? Syria? Saudi Arabia? These, and almost all other Arab countries, represent. among the most despotic nations on earth. There is, of course, one Arab democracy, Lebanon, but it is rather horrible to contemplate what the mere presence of the PLO in that country has done to “peaceful co-existence despite religious differences”. He says, “ . . .the Israelis refuse to recognise the PLO as the legitimate representatives . . .“. This is hardly surprising. The PLO and all other Arab countries certainly refuse to recognise the government of Israel as a legitimate representative of its people. At least the Israeli government is elected by its people-I cannot imagine what the PLO’s chief claim to legitimacy is, for I do not count more murders, bombings, and general terrorism than any other group of “freedom fighters” (surely one of the most decryable euphemisms ever invented) as legitimacy. The comments on the Zionist demonstration outside Al-hout’s speech are utterly laughable. “Nobody would claim. responsibility for organising the demonstration”??? I guess the Ottawa Jewish Community Council (mentioned in the very next paragraph) just doesn’t count. Incidentally, why did nobody except Charlotte McEwan take responsibility for any of the articles-they are the only unsigned articles in the entire paper. As for the comments on “precision bombing”, I cannot believe you are actually quoting any of the demonstrators-a remark that stupid could only be made by a Chevron or Canadian University Press staffer. Before I continue, I should just like to clear up a few minor points which I do not believe should go unchallenged. Not

the chevron

everyone who opposes the PLO’s entry into Canada is a Zionist-they are merely people who don’t feel completely safe with terrorists, kidnappers, and murderers in the country. I am sure, for example, that the existence of Israel has never been one of the motivating factors in the life of Art Phillips, mayor of Vancouver.1 also object strenuously to the constant harping on the “progressiveness” of Third World nations, and the reactionism of developed nations. The vast majority of Third World nations have governments far more repressive than any of the developed countries have had since the 18th century. It has always been a source of amazement to me that the Chevron can continuously overlook the strong-armed tactics and rampant racism in Uganda, while continuing td harp on the ‘ ‘racist, imperialist” U.S.A. Onwards to “What is Zionism?“. It is stated that “Israeli leaders have turned their state into a military fortress at war with all the nations surrounding it”. This misstatement actually reverses cause and effect-it should read, “the nations surrounding Israel have turned it into a military fortress at war”. Surely the authors of the article cannot believe that Israeli leaders think it in their best interests to remain at war-it is difficult, however, to negotiate with nations which deny your existence, and whose sole aim 7s to destroy your state. It is stated that “despite Israel’s claim to be democratic, it still has . . .emergency regulations”. Unfortunately, this is an inevitable consequence in any nation at war. Even so, the presence of these regulations hardly make Israel undemocratic-there is free voting (with more than one candidate to choose from), citizenship is open to members of all races, etc. There is no doubt at all that only Lebanon among the Arab states can make even remotely similar claims. It is stated that “Israel was among the fist to extend diplomatic recognition to Chile”. I will not challenge this statement IF you publish a list of dates on which all the countries which have recognised Chile first did so. I am sure that that statement is at best a halftruth, which at least puts it halfway ahead of anything else in your articles. As for “Canadian harassment of the Palestinians ’ ’ , there is nothing that really needs to be said. The PLO knows full well why it is being “harassed” lack of “harassment” on the part of Germany led to the massacre at Munich; lack of “harassment” by the Swiss led to the hijacking at the Zurich airport. There is no validity whatever in complaining that “clergymen or pacifists” are also affected. How can a pacifist belong to a terrorist association? How can a clergyman condone murder? The harassment seems indeed a small price -murder victims during hijacks were considerably more than harassed for merely flying on El Al. When someone joins the PLO, he knows that he is associating with murderers-and, it is, and certainly should continue to be, the policy of the Canadian government to keep all violent criminals and their ‘accomplices out of the country. One final point. Palestine contained not just the state of Israel, but also the kingdom of Jordan. I have yet to hear any Palestinian call for negotiations with Jordan. I imagine that this is due in some measure to the PLO’s abortive coup of some years ago against King Hussein. The result of this coup was the expulsion of the PLO from Jordan, and their consequent resettlement in Lebanon. The PLO simply cannot live in peace with anyone. ,

Exec report As 1976 begins we feel it necessary to submit another Executive Report on the future direction of the Arts Society. The October report held a measure of cautious optimism as the Society widened its scope in an attempt to become more responsive and informative. The past successes of the Society suggest a bright potential for improved communication, representation, and a sense of spirit within the Arts Faculty. Past endeavours include the organization of the

Knot Garden, Arts:Math-ESS Week, Semi-Formal, athletic teams, coffee shop etc. The re-emergence of twelve special interest clubs, such as the History and Psych societies, which are sponsored and funded by the Arts Society, add increased depth to efforts to satisfy areas of student interest. This term there will be such things as Arts-ESS-Math Week, Meet your rep night, Inter-Society Conference, and some student info outlets, but there is always room for improvement (ie. communication between clubs themselves and the Society). To create a more effective and informative Arts Society, we must all contribute and work more diligently in these areas. We have one comment to make concerning the role of special interest areas and their relationship to any organization. These areas, whether they are groups, causes, clubs, beliefs, or viewpoints of many or few, should be able to have their opinions heard in I

respect to any contribution they might make. This is essential for a better understanding of problems and issues. At the same time the manner of expression should not hinder the views of others or the operation of the representative process. Those involved in an elected or administrative capacity should strive for an encompassing view of events to avoid the con straint of limited direction. Any time there is a preoccupation with certain aspects of an organization you place a limit on the growth and effectiveness of the organization’ as a whole. \ With this in mind we invite all Arts students to participate in any activity, event or group sponsored by your Arts Society.
