OFS

Attitude

Apalling

At a recent On&o Fed&ation of Students (OFS) conference (in Waterloo), I was embarrassed and appalled at the behaviour of my fellow student leaders. For women students, the conference proved to be a sham and hardly representative of women in postsecondary education. Let me explain why. Of its ’ themes Women’s Iss~~‘~as intended to be the central one. To this end, we hosted a Women’s Issues workshop and subsequently invited Dorothy Smith (a well-known defender of women’s rights) to speak at a banquet dinner later that evening. The dynamics that followed prior to and during the course of the question period were extremely offensive to a number of student leaders as well as to the speaker herself. At the beginning of Ms. Smith’s speech, some council representatives were discourteous enough to leave, while some others remained only to laugh at the speaker’s appearance. Because she had simply worn a pants suit for the event, one U of T leader jokingly questioned if in fact a the speaker “was actually From the same woman.” corner of the room came sarcastic statements like “I feel sorry for women such as Bette Stephenson and Pauline Macliberal statements Gibbon,” implying that women were not oppressed! It doesn’t take an overly intelligent person to note that very few women (i.e. a minimal percelltage) are in positions of influence in any sector of society, least of all in politics. Yet such defensive remarks persisted until finally they were booed down by a number of the women and by the more aware men in the au- . dience. What disturbed me here were not onlv the assinine

comments of a few males, but more importantly, the ease with which these comments were made. This leads me to believe that these student leaders will in no way be sympathetic to women’s issues and will probably not defend the female half of their respective constituencies against discrimination based on sex. Although I am a firm believer in women entering the political arena, it is no longer possible to excuse men for this type of behaviour. Women must be represented whether they are on student councils or not. Also, election times and later during the course of the school year, council leaders should be scrutinized as to their positions on women’s issues! Do you know how your council feels about women in positions of authority? In addition, just what is the extent of their knowledge of women’s issues in post-secondary education or in the society at large? Finally, during the OFS conference, I was surprised to hear that some campuses did not have a women’s organization or any pressure group at all. Though women do not require token representation, there is a definite need for special attention to be given to such women’s concerns as sexual harassment, rape, discrimination, single parenthood, daycare facilities, etc; after all, these should not be the concerns of women alone. It is the business of every student council to be aware of these widespread ‘problems, however, this aim can only be met if the leaders are willing to both listen to and act upon the complaints of their female constituents. Ruth Scher Trent Student Union

Schroeder

Update

An up-to-the-minute sumof Schroeder’s mary Evolution-Thermodynamics debate: Following Richard Leakey’s anthropology lecture, Dr. Schroeder wrote a carefully rigged and paralogical argument that Leakey’s work was based on a *‘simple-minded and fraudulent” assumption of evolution and that evolution violates the second law of thermodynamics. He also claimed that no ancient skull has ever been found both intact and in its original shape and

composition. He also unwittingly displayed the obvious limitations of his knowledge of radiochemistry with a claim that all archeological dating techniques beyond a few hundred years are misleading and false. Mr. M. Rennie replied that the second law was taken out of context, since it applies only to closed systems. The Earth and living species are open systems, constantly absorbing energy from the sun either directly through radiation and plant photo-synthesis or indirectly through food consumption. Schroeder replied to this (Imprint, Nov. 30) that “Another interpretation of the. . . law. . . is that the universe moves from a state of higher order to a more random state. The hypothesis of evolution requires the reverse. The universe is considered to be a closed system. So I cannot see how I have used the second law out of context. . . . (It) makes an evolution of the cosmos from total randomness or chaos to the orderly movement of stars and planets impossible. So the existence of the non-closed, orderly system earth cannot be explained by an evolutionary process, as the universe is subjected everywhere to the law of decay described by thermodynamics.” This is an exact quote and Dr. Schroeder made his view and line of argument quite clear and unambiguous. Unambiguous, that is, until I refuted his claim and reiterated Mr. Rennie’s refutation in more detail. He wrote, “If one associates an increase in order with a decrease in entropy, I don’t think it is reasonable to conclude from my writing that I deny a decrease in entropy in any system.” Outside Orwellian’ 1984 doublethink, how can anyone hold both convictions at once? He claimed the law of decay applies everywhere in the universe, I countered that if increased order is disallowed everywhere then no organism can grow, nothing can freeze in winter, and crystals cannot form; so he responds that he doesn’t deny increased order in every system, which means that evolution is not impossible if given a mechanism (general statistical law) of survival of the fittest. He won’t admit this, of course. The skeletal structure of Dr. Schroeder’s “logic” is as follows: he insists on proposition Rennie proposes “B” “A”, which refutes A, Schroeder dances between Al and A2 (al-

ternate interpretations of system, order, and context), hopping to the other when one gets too hot for him, claims that B only refutes C, not A. I refute A with D, and Dr. Schroeder leaps over to E and denies ever asserting A. A mind capable of learning much civil engineering would never be taken in by an argument like that, unless it strongly wanted to believe in such an interesting and entertaining story as the creation myth is. All through evangelism, fundamentalism, occult doctrines, and transcripts from the Inquisition one finds an intense desire to believe in the awesome and fantastic. Why else would anyone believe that Adam and Eve produced offspring at the age of 120, that they lived up to 900 years, that the whole human race descended from inbreeding among their children, that Noah at the age of 600 built an ark the size of a modern dreadnought in a few years with only the help of three sons, and that a hurricane drained out the Red Sea the precise, instant Moses raised his arms; and then deny scientific dating techniques, fossil evidence, biology, and astronomy? Schroeder writes “the probability of random formation of a molecule of protein complicated enough to bear life is neglible”, completely ignoring the fact that, however random molecular motion is, molecular formation is not random. Each type of molecule will only react with specific positions or atoms on another molecule. The same applies to ions, radicals, and branches of macromolecules. That is why macromolecules and even proteins can be synthesized in a lab by control of conditions and proportions. It is also true that the mussel shell Dr. Schroeder referred to couldn’t possibly be formed by random slopping together of particles, but by slow secretion and growth from a living animal. In short, granting the existance of a divine creator, any thinking person would interpret the Creation story as a legend telling what happened in a symbolic and figurative way, and evolution theory as an explanation of how we were created.

Isolate

After some dissati sfaction last term, I have come to enjoy

your paper. While it may not be excellent, it is certainly acceptable. However I was somewhat alarmed when I read Mr. Redding’s editorial last week. Liking the paper in its present form, I fear that the changes suggested by Mr. Redding will isolate the paper more from the students. With a secure student fee to fall back on the paper may become more like another paper that once received a guaranteed student fee. When your paper started there was a desire expressed by some to operate a paper solely dependent on advertising revenue, that would not only be free from the AIA, but also from the Federation. Despite unfair competition from the once “official” Chevron, you have survived. Now you want to give up the fight. Mr. Redding wants your paper to have the same unfair competitive advantage that you (and I) used to decry The Chevron for having. However, I do realize that you are having financial difficulties. (I suggest better financial management). While I oppose an official status for your paper I do not adamantly oppose you getting fees sometime in the future. I do think that this term would be a bid time politically, because of your close relationship with the Federation, and because there was a newspaper referendum held just last term. There should be a cooling off period. You may feel that a fee is necessary for your paper to survive. If you get one your paper may survive, but your dream will die. J.J. Long

Rape

Centre

Needed

During a recent election campaign my platform stressed, among other things, the need for our Federation to represent the interests of students at local levels of government. I often cited the demise of the Waterloo Rape Distress Centre

New

as a recent example of how our student union could have addressed the problem of municipal cutbacks in community services. When city council rejected the centre’s bid for a grant of five thousand dollars (thereby forcing the organization out of existence), the Federation should have impressed upon our city fathers the need for such a service to continue, especially given the frequent incidence of sexual attacks on and around campus. I was surprised to find that many students at this university do not perceive this issue as one of any real consequence. One has only to read Lori Farnham’s ‘comment’ in Imprint (Feb.1) to realize the exasperation which many women on this campus feel when confronted by such widespread indifference to their needs. The Federation of Students certainly cannot eradicate the problem of violence against women. It can, however, take some very positive steps toward ameliorating the situation here in Waterloo. I hope that President-elect McGuire will see fit to represent the needs of women students by lobbying for the re-establishment of the Rape Distress Centre. If this fails, perhaps certain oncampus services could be expanded to meet these needs. The university administration must also be approached with regard to lighting the Optometry pathway and other areas on campus where sexual attacks have repeatedly taken place. Of the many issues facing society today, this is one of paramount importance because personal security and the dignity of the individual are both at stake. Steve Beattie

House ‘not up to pi?

Students flee from Eight UW students have each lost-from $1000 to $3000 when a fire gutted their house on 117 Albert St. in about thirty minutes Monday morning. Peter Toffler, a 2B Math student, discovered the fire burning two different walls in an occupied basement room about 8:55 am. Toffler alerted two roommates, Bruce Harding, a first year

business student WLU and Jim Furnt. Harding and Furnt were able to use the front exit but Furn was forced to leave clad only in pajamas while Toffler had to use the fire exit. First year students Dave Bray, Larry Stewart, Kevin Maynard, Martin Saeger and Gerry Daley, had already left the house for 8:30

Gov’t favors freer toking Some students are breathing a sigh of relief after recent statements by leaders of the three major parties favouring speedy passage of a bill to decriminalize marijuana. Justice Minister Marc Lalonde told the Commons Feb. 7 “we will be very happy to consult and see how fast we can proceed.” Joe Clark said the Conservatives would like to spend more time on the bill but with an election in the offing “our backs are to the wall.” The bill will virtually eliminate penalties for possession of marijuana for personal use. However, Lalonde restated the Liberal Government’s policy that possession of marijuana should remain an offence, but not one that leads to a criminal conviction and a criminal record. Lalonde said that if the government brings in the bill it will be similar to the bill passed by the Senate a few years ago. The Senate bill died on the order paper before the Commons had a chance to study its proposal that cannabis be placed under the Food and Drug Act, which presently covers hallucinogenic drugs such as LSD-and amphetamines. Marijuana is included in the Narcotic Control Act and the maximum jail term, though seldom enforced, is seven years. Frank Epp, President of Conrad Grebel College and the Liberal candidate for Waterloo, said “I favour decriminalization but also some other process that would decrease the use.” When the fact that decriminalization would almost certainly increase the use of marijuana was mentioned to Epp, he said, “that aspect of decriminalization bothers me.” NDP candidate Michael Makarchuk could not be contacted for comment and the Conservative candidate has resigned.

classes. Only one of the eight students is partially covered by insurance. Waterloo Fire Prevention Officer Chuck Devison told Imprint that the cause of the fire is not yet known. The Fire Marshall and police are investigating and expect a report next week. The house was equipped with a wooden fire escape, and two smoke detectors, but no fire extinguishers. Owner Murray Matthews had come in the Saturday before the fire to replace the batteries in the smoke detectors and to remove the lock from Toffler’s door because his room was an avenue to the only fire escape, Toffler said. The Albert St. students feel the fire was “a good way ,for the house to go.” All of them felt that the conditions in which they lived in were deplorable. Toffler’s room had a door leading to the fire escape with a two inch gap letting in cold air. The walls of the house were hollow and made of fibrewood. The floor was very old and breaking off in pieces. Shingles were peeling and a hole in the roof let in water which seeped into the floors. The students say they had several unusable stoves before they were given one that worked. They claim they were without heating until the end of November. Matthews was very slow when it came to fixing things, Toffler said. It was impossible, according to Stewart. Matthews promised things but never came through with them. Bray told Imprint that Matthews said a cleaning lady would come in regu-

Cutback The University of Waterloo library will continue to receive federal government documents, despite a $2 million budget cut in government publications. Federal Minister of Supply and Services Pierre de Bane announced Feb 8 that 217 university and colleges and 396 public libraries will not have their full depository status changed by the cut. Before his announcement, it had been expected that a large number of libraries would no longer receive free government publications. A library

Another 189 university and college libraries have a selective status, meaning they can receive federal documents free of charge, but must order them from a checklist. The University of Waterloo has full depository status. UW’s chief librarian Murray Shepherd told Imprint that strong lobbying by libraries across the country

hurt persuaded de Bane to make the cuts elsewhere. Shepherd speculated that UW’s status wouldn’t have changed if the cutbacks had been instituted. However, he said that rumour had it only one library would maintain it’s full depository status, most likely University of Toronto’s Shepherd guarded his remarks saying, “Although they have cancelled the plan for cutbacks, I’m not going to believe anything until I see it on paper.” Leonard Barwen

For leadership

ISA favours Iran is a country of many contradictions. Although it is one of the world’s wealthiest countries, the ordinary people are impoverished and most of the country is illiterate. News from Iran has blazoned front pages all week, in the wake of the downfall of the Shahappointed government. The Iranian student’s association held a meeting Saturday afternoon to discuss the present situation in Iran and indicate what they expect for the country’s future. The meeting began with a slide show which used Western media such as the New York Times to document the history of a regime Amnesty International once called “the most brutal on the face of the earth.” In Iran, according to Harper’s magazine, over two-thirds of the city workers make less than $800 yearly, and there is only one doctor for every 3,000 people. _ The oil revenues, which amounted to $22 billion a few years ago, are largely spent on Iran’s massive military machine. Responsibility for the economic inequity was, according to the Iranian students, the joint responsibility of the Shah, brought to power in 1953 by a CIA coup, and the US multinationals who dominate the country’s economy. However, massive popular unrest, strikes of oil workers, and some armed confrontations,combined to force the Shah to leave the country a few weeks ago for a “vacation.” Bl:t the caretaker gov-

Old stvle power svstemrxiay have advantages

d alternating Although current has been the method of choice for electrical power transmission almost as long as power generating stations have been in existence, the use of direct current for this purpose is beginning to make a comeback. Both methods have their advantages; AC is more easily and efficiently distrid buted, while DC, on the other hand, is superior for. running electric motors. This shortcoming, however, was alleviated by Nicolai Tesla’s invention of the AC motor, and AC has been the preferred method of transmission ever since. Nonetheless, DC has reappeared, when Sweden installed a 20 megawatt DC underwater cable in 1954, and today, DC transmission lines are used all over the world. Although DC- will never completely replace AC, it has certain advantages for carrying power long distances, such as Imprint needs science writers, and you could be one of them. But first, let’s kill some misconceptions. You don’t have to be in science (or any technical field), you don’t have to be a senior undergraduate or a graduate student, and you don’t even have to know about the field about which you will write. This is made possible using the extensive articles, magazines, pamphlets, etc. which are in the science files in the Imprint office. You don’t need to have a lot of time either; you can get a topic and spend a half an hour here and there, and finish the article in a month or so. If you’d like to know more about it all, please drop into the office in CC140 and see what it’s all about. Stephen Coates

J AC is transmitted in three phase. Each phase, requiring its own conductor, completes the circuit of the other tw,o and if one phase is lost, so are the other two, making extra conductors necessary. DC, on the other hand, needs only 2 conductors since if one is lost, the earth itself can be used to complete the circuit. DC, however, has costs which can make it unprofitable, for lines shorter than 1,000 km. The most significant cost is that of the installation which converts the high voltage AC to DC and vice versa. These installations use networks of thousands of “thyristors”, or solid state electronic switches, controlling thousands of volts each. By turning these thyristors on in the right sequence AC can be rectified into DC, being made to flow in one direction only. Likewise DC can be “ininto AC, then verted” smoothed by “harmonic filters” into alternating current. While with short lines these costs can exceed the savings, there are other, intangible benefits, such as greater reliability - a DC line will still operate, even if one conductor is lost and better control of the

lower “line losses” (power wasted in overcoming the resistance of the cable), savings in materials, greater reliability, and better control of the power system. The primary advantage of AC is that its voltage can be changed easily by a transformer. Since line losses, which can account for 10% of power produced, are reduced by using high voltages (as high as 765,000 volts), this is a very useful property. DC, however, has a lower line loss than AC transmitted at the same voltage, which results in nontrivial energy savings. Lower line losses can allow remote hydro and thermal generating stations to become economically viable, where they might otherwise not have been. Localized thermal generation eliminates the need for expensive transportation of the coal. Further savings can result from the fact that DC transmission power lines require only 2 conductors (wires) compared to AC facilities which require a minimum of three conductors and often six or more. The reduced transmission line and tower requirements can give rise to considerable savings. The reason for this is that

power system. Since the thyristors control the power flow directly, they can be used to isolate and limit faults, such as short circuits, in the system. Another advantage of DC is that it can improve the AC system to which it is connected. A typical power generating system consists of several stations, each with several individuallycontrolled generators, all interacting. Careful1 engineering is necessary to avoid “dynamic instability”, which can be dis,asterous. By using DC links to isolate different AC systems, the individual systems become more stable than they would be if they were directly connected. An example of this is the Eel River Project, connecting New Brunswick and Quebec Hydro. This is a “back to back” system, meaning that the power is rectified and inverted in the same building. The technology acquired in developing DC transmission systems, such as high power semiconductors (e.g. thyristors), can also be of with new power use sources such as solar cells or fuel cells, which produce DC. _ _ DC has already demon-

strated its usefullness in power systems across Canada, such as the underwater DC line from the mainland to Vancouver Island, and in many other

placesaround the world, for in as in

example several systems the USA and the USSR, well as planned systems Brazil and India. Peter Bain

Dance displays variety, \

Danny Grossman was funny, serious, and somewhat disappointing, Saturday, February 10 at the Humanities Theatre. He presented seven works of his choreography, some of which were new to me, some of which I had seen before. The only real disappointment was the first dance, called Fratelli (Italian for brothers). The first time I saw this work I found it interesting; however, on Saturday evening I was bored. Two men in yellow tights, bowler hats, and moustaches played in and around screens that represented a house and later a stage. It seemed to me that their play was more for themselves than the audience. They were at once extroverted and introverted; that is, they wanted to get out there and perform but they were too shy to do it. The second work, called Couples Suite, was in two parts. It depicted the automation and insensitivity of relationships compared to the honesty and innocent playfulness they could potentially contain. Part one was called Couples and consisted of three couples: two men, two women, and a man and a woman, although their gender was unimportant. They were neither male nor female; rather they were androgynes dressed in neutral grey body tights. Their movements were stiff and automated as they

changed partners in a disinterested fashion. The second part, called Inching, was a witty piece danced by Judith Hendin and Eric Bobrow. As the title implies, the two dancers’ movements consisted mainly of inching along the floor like an inch-worm. The relationship between them is in direct contrast to the relationships in the first part. You see between them an innocence and honesty that makes them unaware of any troubles around them. They are in their own little world. The third work calledCurious Schools of Theatrical Dancing; Part I was a solo danced by Danny Grossman. This was a very serious work and somewhat disturbing: disturbing, because as the program notes said, “In his solo the clown figure reveals a very personal world.” It is a personal world of pain and paradox. The clown figure is encircled by a circus-like ring out of which he never steps. He performs acrobatic stunts in a rather grotesque manner. The image of the futility of circus life was painfully brought to light in this dance. So too were hours of training to the point of cruelty (perhaps he was thinking of dancers, not clowns), the way their life continues on and on, the way he is trapped in it. Triptych was another

-Boo+ks In Gallant Alexander

Company Kent

This isa story of the men and ships of the Royal Navy in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Alexander Kent brings this exciting era to life in the novel In Gallant Company, the latest book in his Richard Bolitho series. This series, which now consists of ten books, chronicles the rise of Bolitho from midshipman to admiral and spans the time from the American Revolution to the War of 1812. The story begins in 1777. Bolitho is the fourth lieutenant of the eighty gun ship of the line, HMS Trojan. The American Revolution has just begun and the British are still trying to suppress it. Bolitho sees much action as the Trojan ranges from New York to the Caribbean on its missions against the Americans. Kent has succeeded in writing a fast-paced, straightforward story. He evokes realism in his characters, showing the variety of men who volunteered or were forced into the king’s service. He also details the harsh discipline and terrible conditions under which they lived. This is an interesting novel, showing the glory

and hardships of the British Navy in this age of fighting sail. Neil Campbell

serious and disturbing work. Three dancers dressed in salvation army suits and one shoe seemed to be constantly trying to escape, or to hide, or to strip away something that annoyed or bewildered them. Two of the figures strained to get up, to movd with tremendous difficulty towards something. The other figure remained in a prone position of the floor. Images of poor and starving people and the hopelessness of their struggle were brought to life in this work. The last two works, the best of the night, provided an excellent way to conclude this performance. Both were superior examples of the wit and humour for which Danny Grossman is making himself known. National Spirit is a satire done to marches and anthems. The company of six, which included Judith Hendin, Eric Bobrow, Greg Parks, Judith Miller, Randy Glynn, and Danny Grossman, was dressed in an array of red, white and blue shorts, sneakers, tee-shirts, and hockey socks. Acrobatics and sports activities served as a thematic point of reference for the dance which was funny to watch and seemingly fun to perform. Last was a dance called Higher that could only be performed by Judith Hendin and Danny Grossman. As I watched them sliding in, around, on and through a ladder and two chairs one question came to mind. I asked myself if it was possible to make love on the back of a chair because if it was possible these two dancers could do it. I enjoyed this work a great deal the first time I saw it and even more this time because it

They did three sets of comedy skits and improvisations, poking fun at a number of topical issues and everyday situations. Much of Second City’s work is based on a distinct and projective style of vocal and facial expression, a technique that is particularly appropriate for this type of humour. However, the audience’s response to the weaker segments of their programme would suggest a craving for something that even a Bingeman special can’t fill. . . .

Waterloo

The Kitchener Auditorium was the scene for the filming of sequences for a Canadian film called ‘Title Shot’. The crew arrived Wednesday and Thursday to shoot crowd scenes and parts of a boxing match. Roughly 2000 Kitchener and Waterloo residents arrived to provide background for the auditorium shots. They were paid off in hot dogs and T-shirts (somewhat below union scale). Most spent the day being shuffled around like cattle and yelled at by directors. The movie is about two fighters named Rufus Taylor and Niki Romano. It stars Tony Curtis and Richard Gabourie, and is directed by Les Rose. The budget was quoted as between one and two million. The movie will take f&e weeks to film - most sequences will be shot in Toronto studios. Members of Satan’s Choice were invited down to Wednesday by the producer. The K-W Record printed that they came down of their own accord, and implied that they were troublesome. As a result, the crew was reluctant to discuss the film, citing ‘bad press’. Waterloo region seems to be in deniand as a film site these days, with Elora being considered as a possible site for a remake of ‘A Christmas Carol’ later this year. Photo by Vince Catalfo

‘The

Warriors’

If the film ‘The Warriors’ is any indication of the quality of films we will be seeing throughout 1979, we might be better off staying at home. ‘The Warriors’ is one of seven films dealing with gang wars to be relased this year. The story is based on a novel by Sol Yurick, and is directed by Lawrence Gordon. The film has a very simple plot about the fantasy of uniting all the gangs in the city of New York.

When Cyrus, (a top gang-leader) is shot, there is a wild chase for the supposed killers. There is a lot of running and a few good fights, but basically the film is a flop. There is no real excitement at any point, and even the more brutal scenes show a rather idealistic -. view of gang wars. The main characters are stereotypes of gang members, and the acting is uniformly mediocre which doesn’t help the audience to beome involved with the

Warriors fail

For the second year in a row the hockey team failed to make the playoffs in the tough Western Division of the OUAA. On Friday night, the scrappy Warriors played inspired hockey in the opening period and outskated their Western opponents. Numerous scoring opportunities presented themselves, but the Warriors failed to capitalize and the period ended scoreless. The second period seemed to be a replay of the first as the Warriors were frustrated by Western’s goalie. The Mustangs finally broke the silence. Rick Nic-

kelchok was mysteriously lifted in the 3rd period for back up goalie Butch Laporte. Waterloo tried for a comeback in the final period but couldn’t make good of some goal-mouth scrambles. The Warriors were unable to buy a goal in the third period, but managed to sell a couple as a result of a couple of defensive lapses. A knee injury to Waterloo standout-rearguard John Campbell a few weeks ago seems to be a definite factor, as the Warriors lost some tough games by narrow margins and subsequently missed a playoff berth. Steve Valeriote

Athenas

Athenas played their last regular season game Friday. They defeated the strong Ottawa G-Gees 70-64. The game itself was a close, well-fought battle. The Athenas’ shooting was well over its average with the high scoring power of Liz Silcott. She tucked away 30 points for the Athenas and Barb Nugent was second with 11 points. The first half of the game was very close with only two points separating the teams. The Athenas closed the half with only a 35-33 lead. It wasn’t till the last quarter that the Athenas broke the game apart to their favourite. Now the Athenas will go over to Sudbury for the Ontario finals. The top two teams will go to the nationals.

The Waterloo Women’s Ice Hockey Team lost their first playoff game on Sunday against Tavistock 4-1. The series is the best two out of three games, so Waterloo will have their backs to the wall when they play again on Feb. 18 in Waterloo. Tavistock opened the

scoring at the first minute mark. This seems to be what Waterloo does a lot these days - get behind in the first part of the game. (Perhaps it is more challenging this way). Tavistock outchecked the Wanderers and forced them deep in their own zone to make errant passes.

Then Tavistock capitalized on their opportunities close to the net. Their second goal came about because Waterloo did not clear their checks out from in front of the net. The Wanderers came ,within one goal in the first period on an alert play by Ruth Johnston from in

Fourth inr Slalom

The Wanderers did have some chances, from sizzling shots by Jane Larkworthy and good set-ups by Helen Mackey.

Last Friday at the University of Western Ontario Invitational Slalom at Beaver Valley, the Warriors placed 4th in the race. They were led by Malcolm Murray who finished 2nd and Gord Reese in 10th. The race was hampered by a breakdown in the electronic clocks and was thus cut to one run instead of two. This really hurt the team since they usually come on strong in the second run. As it stands now, in order for them to be invited to the Can-Am series they must beat either U of T or Western in both races of the championships. The Athenas had their share of trouble in this race as well. The top two finishers were Linda Leistner and Pasty Chalmers in 9th and 10th spot. In team competition, the Atenas managed a 6th place but they were looking towards better things at the championships. The next -race for the skiers is the Ontario Championships which is being hosted by U of T at the Georgian Peaks. Jack Spence

close. She was assisted by the good playmaking of Bev McKeown and Jan Card. This was about the only bright spot in the game, as Tavistock scored two more goals in the second and third periods, one from a shot from the point on their power play, and another from good passing in front of the net.

Waterloo could not contain Tavistock’s fast breakout, as there were many three on two’s and two on one’s. The Wanderers need to concentrate more on short passes, because their long ones are being intercepted quite frequently. However, Waterloo will attempt to outskate and out-hustle Tavistock next Sunday Feb. 18 from i’pm to 8 pm at Moses Springer Arena. All you fans that could not get out to Wellesley can now come to watch the Wanderers fight hard to remain in the play-offs. We desperately need hometown fans so our home ice advantage means something. So come and cheer long and loud for the Wanderers. We would appreciate your coming.
