Imprint is the University of Waterloo’s student newspaper. It is an editorially independent newspaper published by the Journalism Club, a club within the Federation of Students, University of Waterloo, Ontario. Phone 885-1660 or ext. 2331. Imprint is a member of the Canadian University Press (CUP), a student press organization of 63 papers across Canada. The paper publishes every second week in the Spring term; mail should be address&d to “Imprint, Campus Centre 140.” We are typeset by the Dumont Press Graphix collective; paste-up is done on campus. Imprint: ISSN 0706-7380.
Letters The Imprint encourages letters to the paper. Letters should be typed, double-spaced, on a 64 character line, addressed to “The Journalism Club, CC 140.” Please include your telephone number, name and faculty. Letters should not exceed 700 words. The following letters were submitted at the end of last term.
Standards I was rather
aback to find a letter in last week’s paper taken
(March 22) rather ferociously attacking Alfred Kunz in various respects. I don’t know Mr. Julian, and I am not a professional musician; but as most readers of this letter will no doubt be aware, I can also claim to “consider music one of my main interests in life”, and am pretty conversant with the concert stages of Toronto, New York, London (Eng.), etc., and Waterloo. And I am unclear just what concerts under Kunz’ direction, qr what music composed by him, Mr. Julian may have heard, nor how much he knows about the musical forces Kunz has been able to have at his command or what constraints he has had to work under. These are all matters with which I am familiar, however, and I would like to put my own musical judgment against Mr. Julian’s on the main issues in his letter. Though Kunz is not an academically trained musician, a fact which has also told considerably against his career, he does have taste and he does know “the difference between hype and beauty”. So&e of his performances here, with extremely inadequate forces, have been remarkable and plainly showed real musical understanding and ability. Again with that same caveat, I would also say that the general standard of his performance of the established classics, such as Bach’s Magnificat, the Haydn Masses, Mozart Concertos, and so on, has been very high. Some of his compositions, notably the set of choral songs performed by the Kitchener Bach Choir awhile back, have, in my
judgment, real merit, and it is certainly not surprising that many dozens of them have been published. Among his more adventurous works, such as his “Creation”, or the Chamber Symphony, written to a commission by the K-W Chamber Music Society and performed by the Stratford Ensemble under his direction, some have been mixed bags, but they were by no means incompetent; all showed genuine talent. They stand up well, I am bound to say, by the standards of contemporary Canadian composers, whose works I frequently hear both here, in Toronto, and on recordings. (It would be interesting to know what Julian thought of the string quartet by John Beckwith, performed here on our concert of March gth, for instance. Does he think Kunz’ Chamber Symphony a worse piece than that? Or has he, perhaps, not heard either one of these works? If so, one would like to know more about the basis -for his attacks on Kunz’ competence.) Mr. Julian has a bit of a point in accusing Kunz of making a fair amount of noise on campus on his own behalf. But certainly Julian’s case here is vastly overstated: Kunz has never, to my knowledge, mounted anything like a “personal vendetta against the board of directors of the university and . . . (its) president”. He is certainly far from alone in questioning the commitment of this univeristy to performing music on this campus, and while the music program at Conrad Grebel College, which has become the official music program on campus, is clearly coming along well and does not leave the campus bereft of music, there is also room to argue that it doesn’t really replace the kind of extracurricular music-making which Kunz initiated and maintained here. And why shouldn’t Kunz argue that? After all, it is hard to blame someone who has done his job faithfully and with an enthusiastic following through fourteen years from taking it hard when he is told that his program is no longer needed. The University is hard-pressed financially, as we know, and it
is understandable that they should have decided that, in view of Conrad Grebel’s program, the University’s musical interests could be adequately sustained without him. But it has never been represented to me that the reason for his dismissal involved dissatisfaction with his work for us, quantitatively or qualitatively. It is clear, for example, that if Kunz had had a regular academic appointment like the rest of us, there would have been no question of dismissing him for cause. He, in fact, isn’t what was dismissed: instead, it was his program which was terminated, and that is no reflection on Kunz’ abilities or ac-
complishments. I would like to note, as against the terminology in which Kunz’ own letters to editors and those of his supporters are couched, that Julian’s letter is pretty nearly on a level with typical epistles to The Chevron: that is to say, insulting, full of nasty insinuations and hasty judgments, and surely not what one would hope to have from someone with Julian’s professed background. I’m sorry to see that Imprint’s policy, much like the Chevron’s, is to print letters essentially unedited. It seems to me high time we tidied maintaining a civilized tone on campus, for a change. Anyway, Julian does damage to his own cause in being so intemperate, and I hope that its near-libelous tone will earn him no friends in this attack. But I hope that this letter will offset any influence of Julian’s regarding the main points. Jan Narveson President, K-W Chamber Music Society
Once again the Engineers of this campus have been wronged. This time I speak of the Imprint’s disrespectful attitude towards our Mascot, THE RIIXXD TOOL. (For reference, see photo caption, p. 15, March 22, 1979) For the benefit of everyone on campus I shall now quote from the EngSoc Handbook (available for inspection at our Orifice b anyone) There is only one way to snell the name of the Mas-
cot, and this is it: THE RIDGID TOOL. All three words are capitalized and the D and G of RIDGID must always be joined. In less formal-usage-, the name may be shortened to “THE TOOL”, but it must always be capitalized. On behalf of Engineering students at Waterloo I would now like to note a couple more points of interest w.r.t. the photo and caption in your last issue. Even a non-Engineer knows that you can’t push on a rope (unless it is frozen or heavily waxed); the bus was pulled downtown on behalf of Big Sisters. In addition Plummer, as in Plummers’ Hard Hat Band (not to be abbreviated), is correctly spelled “Plummer”. Plumber is for more formal occasions as in Paul Plumber Award.

Once again you capitalist pig dogs, phrase mongers of the financiers of Wall Street have been out shiften (to the right!) by that ever present gentle guiding beacon of socialist peace, harmony, and overall goodness and graciousness, the Chevron (notice how the voice, yea even the mind softens as the name of that speaker of truth, wisdom and light, thinking is mentioned). Yes the Chevron (Oh that name) has revealed the true good think of our Albanian ideals again! - In the April 5th edition of the Chevron (Oh hear Marx and Lenin sing praises to their on going struggle against the repression of “the” people,,,, in two part harmony,,, it used to be three part, but the Chevron has already exposed the CIA plant who ran China for 26

Oh brothers of the international struggle, let us rejoice as one of the flock holds its head high in the light of true socialist thought, as epitomized by that true practitioner of universal benevalante, all hail our-mother state Albania.

But, most importantly, by setting tuition fees at some “magic” percentage of institutional costs, the government will have set those students fighting for a quality education (against crowded labs, library cuts) against those students fighting for access to education (against tuition increases). If the Ross recommendations are ticcepted, then anyone who asks for more funding to universities is also asking that their. fees be raised. Anyone who fights against fee hikes is also automatically demanding that university budgets be frozen - in effect, eroded by inflation. The underlying philosophy of the Ross report is that education is a service, provided by independent suppliers (the uni-

This begs the question: if education is a service, then why should students pay for only part of the cost? Why shouldn’t the percentage the government is looking for be 100 percent? Such a philosophy of course contradicts the government’s 1960s doctrine of “universal accessibility” - that education is a right available to anyone with the academic qualifications. Students must campaign hard against the P.S. Ross recommendations. If they don’t, it’ll be “making the bucks”, not “making the grade” that inakes the difference in Ontario in a few years.

News. ‘Fake member The Federation of Students decided yesterday to suspend its recognition of the International Students’ Association (ISA) because of the group’s overspending during the past fiscal year and its recent submission of a falsified membership list, president Mark McGuire said Wed-
nesday. All groups seeking Federation recognition must supply a list of their members. The list eventually submitted by the ISA.aroused McGuire’s suspicions because it contained 183 names, when he knew it was “a small group”.
Waterloo-Cambridge ridings -respectively) are running for re-election, since Cambridge is now considered a separate electoral riding. The Federation of Students plans to hold an information session with the Waterloo riding candidates in the Theatre of the Arts at noon on May 16, to be followed by an informal coffee and doughnuts session in the Humanities Building. The Imprint will carry interviews with all the candidates in its next issue. Bernie Roe hl
Refunds In the first four days of refunds, 36 students had retrieved their $10 federation fee (which incorrectly states “including chevron” on many fee schedules), 6 had refunded CKMS’s $2.50 fee. Refunds are available until May 18 at the fed office, the Bauer Wgrehouie (from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) for CKMS, and Physics room 226 for WPIRG. They are also available for the societies at your respective society offices.
A Federation secretary was asked to do a check of all the names on the list. She was able to contact thirtyfive of the people named. Twenty-nine of these said that they were not members of ISA, and some had never even heard of it, McGuire said. Brigid Rowe, ISA vicepresident, called the Federation’s decision “totally undemocratic and unjust.” Rowe’ said that the ISA has never been Required to submit a membership list and should not have to start now. Asked if the list submitted were falsified, she replied that all international students were automatically members of the ISA and that there was, therefore, no membership list. McGuire said the group has frequehtly been “irresponsible with money”, coming to the Federation with bills for items not originally budgeted for. Legally, the Federation is liable for any bills incurred by groups it has granted recognition. McGuire said that over the past fiscal year, which ended in April, the ISA has seven received about hundred dollars, which is “m&e than twice what the average club gets”. The ISA contacted the Federation’s lawyer on behalf of ATnold Boatswain, the Guyanese student who was deported last fall for illegally entering the country. Legal fees are about $300, McGuire said. The ISA should have asked the Federation for approval before contacting a lawyer, McGuire said. Also, since the Federation
does not support Boatswain, it “won’t even consider paying lawyer’s fees” unless forced by its legal responsibilities to do so. However, McGuire said the Federation is willing to reimburse the ISA for past expenditures included in the original budget if they are presented with receipts. Rowe said the ISA budget was “slashed” from $800 to $300 at the beginning of the last fiscal year, to “interfere with the ISA’s action to defend international students.” Asked if the association

Students living off-campus should either go to the Federation office to find out where and when they should register, or contact the Chief Returning Officer directly (Waterloo 8866530; Kitchener, 576-7150).
Clark described some of the problems that have arisen in seeing that students at UW get enumerated. “The federal election couldn’t have been called at a worse time, from the standpoint of getting students enumerated,” said Clark. “It was just when students were leaving campus for the spring term, and a lot of them simply never got enumerated.” Clark pointed out that students living in the Villages had refused enumeration there, and that they must now contact the CRO’s in their areas directly if they wish to vote in the Federal election. “The federal election act just does not make any provision for students in the
co-op programs, who are living in university residences during the summer months. We’ve had a hard time getting the enumeration done on-campus,” said Clark. “It took almost a week of phone calls and getting past the passing buck to get the right to do the enumeration here.” Yet another factor complicating the studentenumeration process is that the final deadline falls at the end of the first week of clas-
went over budget in the past year, Rowe said to “ask McGuire.” She continued that the only expense she could remember, before her recent submission of bills totalling $220, was for the printing of posters advertising a cutback rally. “I don’t see how we could be over budget,” she said. Rowe feels the Federation should pay the lawyer’s fees without question becquse Boatswain was a student at’ UW at the time of his deportation and it was an “emergency situation.”
T-D branch At 3 pm on July 6 the Phillip and University branch of the Toronto Dominion Bank will close its doors for good. It will be relocating its services to the Weber and University branch. A bank spokesperson gave the reason for the move as an over abundance of TD branches in the area. There are 7 branches in Waterloo (in contrast there are only seven in Kitchener). The
building at Weber St. is owned by TD whereas the Phillip St. site is leased. The spokesperson said rising costs in leasing were also a reason that the Phillip St. branch was chosen for the move. When asked how the move would affect business he felt that there would be some loss but that it wouldn’t be substantial, he said. All but two or three of the
employees now at the Philip St. branch will relocate to the Weber St. branch. Staff at that location will be doubling from 8 to 16 because of the move. All other employees will be relocated in the immediate area. 2 years ago on July 22 the Bank of Montreal moved out of its location at Phillip and University. The reason given *for that move was a lack of commercial busi: ness. Don Becker
Doon gets new paper Publication of an alternative student newspaper began at Conestoga College April 11. The paper was started by Michael Brown, former editor of the official student newspaper, the Spoke, at the college’s Doon campus. The newspaper is called The Doon Impression. Citing conflicts with the
ses, making the distribution of information difficult. Still, Clark remains hopeful. “We’re surprised to see how many students are taking an active part in the .campaign . . . it’s quite a contrast to the apathy we normally see.” Students who are interested in helping out with campaign of the candidate of their choice should contact the campaign headquarters to volunteer their services. Bernie Roehl
Doon Students’ Association (DSA), Brown had asked a March 9 DSA Board of Directors’ meeting for greater autonomy for the Spoke. When the board refused to accept Brown’s proposals, he resigned as editor. Newly elected DSA president Dana Culp appointed Mickey Leblanc to replace Brown. The dispute and Brown’s resignation produced hard feelings among Spoke staffers. Some helped Spoke publish its final two issues of term. Some joined Brown in producing The Doon Impression’s first two papers. The rest will have nothing to do with either paper. Interim Spoke editor Leblane traces the importance Brown gave to removing Spoke from DSA control to his involvement with the Canadian University Press (CUP). The bylaws of CUP, to which the Spoke belongs, call for autonomy between student unions and the student newspaper. Imprint and the U of T Varsity are ,L
Senate calls for tuition
The UW Senate came out swinging against two major recomendations of the P.S. Ross report on tuition fees at their April 16 meeting. They rejected a proposal by president Burt Matthews to recommend to the Ontario government that tuition be at least 15 percent of the government grant, and hence increased each year. Instead, Senate voted in favour of a motion by student senator Eric Higgs, that
Rowe said the suspen‘sion is just a “bureaucratic excuse” to thwart the ISA. “It’s the part of Federation’s harassment of any organization on campus which gets up and defends students. They did it wo the Chevron and now they’re doing it to the ISA.” “We will fight,” Rowe said. “There will be a big battle about this.” A member of the ISA will be asked to attend the next BENT meeting to answer questions about the group’s operations.

Today last dav for enumeration Today is the last day to add your name to the voters’ lists for the May 22 Federal election, and unless your name is on the list you will not be able to vote. Diana Clark, Education Chairperson for the Federation of Students, is actively encouraging ail UW students to be enumerated. “Students should get out and vote on student issues, issues that concern them, and find out everything they can about the condidates in their ridings,” said Clark. Enumeration is the process of being registered to vote. The primary enumeration took place between April 2 and April 7, when enumerators went around to all the homes in each of the electoral areas. Anyone who was not at home on any of those days was not added to the voters’ list, even if they had voted in earlier federal or provincial elections. For this reason, it is possible to have your name added to the voters’ list for your area any time up to Friday, May 4. Students who are living in residence will be able to

Five running in federal election
There are a total of eleven candidates running in the KW area in the upcoming federal election, representing parties as diverse as the and the Libertarians Marxist-Leninists. In Waterloo riding, Frank L. Epp is representing the Walter Liberal Party, McLean the Progressive Conservatives, and Mike Makarchuk the New Democrats. In addition a Libertarian, Bonne Posma, and a Marxist-Leninist, Brian Erdman, are contesting the seat. McLean is a Presbyterian minister at Knox church in Waterloo, Epp is a Mennonite minister and, until the election, was president of Conrad Grebel college. Bonne is an engineer with his own company in Guelph. Erdman is a motor man. ’ .- ‘. . In Kitchener, the dandidates are David Cooke (Liberals), John Reimer (PC’s), James Herman (NDP), Rodney Wilson (Libertarians), Paul Pugh (Communists), and Jeff Conway (MarxistLeninists). Neither Joe Flynn nor Max Saltzman (the incumbents in the Kitchener and

tuition fees be frozen until completion of a sociological study on the effects of increases on accessibility to education. The Ontario Federation of Students, and the UW Federation of Students also support a tuition freeze until a study is completed. The Federation is conducting a campaign to have students mail postcards to education minister Bette Stephenson, protesting the increase.
Higgs’ motion passed without debate. In the earlier debate on Matthew’s proposal, Matthews said that he was proposing 15 percent as a figure for fear that the government might choose something higher. Vice-president Tom Brustowski spoke in favour of keeping fees frozen over long periods of time, saying that families had to plan over a long term for their children’s education. Senate supported Matt-
two CUP papers that have recently won separate fees, and therefore autonomy from their student councils. Leblanc feels Doon students should determine how the Spoke is run, not CUP: “He (Brown) expected Spoke and the DSA to abide by CUP bylaws. He wanted to restructure Spoke and the support he got was obviously very little.” Impression staff support Brown’s position on autonomy. In an April 18 staff editorial they wro’te: “We are here to be a watchdog for the students, which we don’t think can happen in a paper controlled by the student government.” DSA president Culp feels The Doon Impression should be banned from campus; however, the college president has allowed it to distribute at Doon. “Why not stop competition if you can?” said Culp. The Doon Impression intends to publish alternate weeks to the Spoke starting in September. John Rebstock
hews in opposing a P.S. Ross recommendation that universities be allowed to set their own tuition fees. Despite some opposition another Matthew’s recommendation that fees be proportional to program costs, “but not directly proportional” also passed. Matthews said that at present, students in lower costs programs such as Arts, were subsidizing higher cost programs, like Engineering. Ciaran O’Donnell

Research OTTAWA (CUP) - Poor refunding and search facilities and lack of employment opportunities are meaning that Canada is losing established scientists and not gaining new ones in many areas. Except in areas with good employment prospects, the natural sciences are losing graduate students. And, because of poor research facilities, many researchers are being lured to better prospects in the United States. That, according ‘to Dr. John Kucharczyk of the Canadian Federation of Biological Societies (CFBS), is the result of the last eight years of research underfunding in Canada. In the United States, he said, an average researcher funded by the National Science Foundation can employ one and one half technicians. In- Canada, researchers funded by the comparable body have only enough funds to employ one technician at half-time. Similarly, the average research grant given by the National Institute of Health in the United States is $56,000, when calculated on the same basis as Canadian grants. The average grant from Canada’s Medical Research Council is less than half that amount $21,054.
a total expenditure by the federation of $356,640. Of this total it is expected that student’s fees will cover $182,000. Entertainment will be one of the federation’s major expenses with just under one fourth of student’s fees
policy Association Journal has estimated that, as a result, Canada has lost 400 established biomedical researchers since 1970, Kucharczyk said. “Canadian researchers are either moving south or strongly considering it. The temptation is exceedingly strong right now.” And, although the govneed ernment will thousands more researchers to meet its goal of increasing research and development to 1.5 per cent of the gross domestic product by 1983, he pointed out, it is actually losing grad students in the natural sciences. The Canadian Council of University Chemistry Chairmen recently predicted that, since the number of graduate students and the number of doctorates awarded in chemistry have dropped steadily since 1972, there will be a shortage of researchers in chemistry in 3-4 years, he said. And the Biological Council of Canada recently reported that the number of doctorates awarded in physical and applied sciences has dropped 45 per cent since 1972, with a similar reduction in the number taking post-doctoral training. “In the life sciences, the same trend is apparent but the reduction is less
going to sudbsidize entertainment. The entertainment subsidy will be $44,900. However the chunk of the major budget, federation’s $95,100 will be going towards administration. $66,000 of this total will be
w marked at 27 per cent.” At a recent CFBS conference, Kucharczyk said, participants pointed out that students are shifting into “professional programs like dentistry, -law, and medicine which seem to offer more stability.” “People are becoming more practical minded. Why would you spend three or four years taking a doctorate in physiology when in all likelihood you won’t get a job at the end? You’d go into medicine instead.” According to James MacAulay of the Science Council of Canada, there is a general perception of fewer
grad students, but the situation varies from discipline to discipline and from institution to institution. But he agreed that, in general, professional faculties with good employment prospects are turning away grad students, while enrolment in the natural sciences has been affected by students’ perception there are few opportunities in research at the end of a degree. In Engineering, for instance, he said, most of the PhD Candidates are international students because Canadians see “no job opportunities” from the degree.
of fee dollar Co-op Services Chairman Steve Beatty proposed to move $500 of his unallocated funds to the Birth Control Centre and asked for council’s commitment that if any extra money was around in September (from unrefunded fees) the difference would be made up. Over Porteous’ objections, council okayed the change, but made no definite commitment about any extra funds. Another major expense shown on the budget is the purchase of a typesetter. This will be sold to the IMPRINT at cost so no real expense will be incurred.
The last head of a Hydra which would have prevented math students from taking extra courses to finish early, was cut off at the April 17 faculty council meeting. A motion by P. N. Hoffman to establish a residency requirement of eight terms, for a degree, was defeated, after some discussion.

A second proposal, which would have greatly broadened the number of exceptions, but still established the principle of limiting the number of courses to be taken for credit, was defeated at a later meeting. Opponents of the motions had argued that students had a right to decide how quickly they wanted to get their degree, and that the motions penalized students who failed a course and then wanted to catch up.

Compared to last year the budget shows small increases in administration and entertainment subsidies with decreases in most other areas. This year’s budget predicts total expenditures of $23,000 less than last year, but last years budget was drawn up forgetting NUS and OFS fees, so reductions were necessary and total expenditures will be the same for both vears. A refund of 10% is allowed for in the budget compared to a 15% rate last year. Last year’s actual rate was about 7%. Frank Morison

Since last March, Kitchener Transit fares for adults have risen 43 per cent, from 35 to fifty cents. The most recent increase was from 45 to 50 cents, effective May 1. Service on the Main Line route, which passes through the UW campus was also cut last year. After 8:00 p.m., there is one bus every forty minutes instead of every twenty minutes as previously, because the buses which used to run down through the campus and down Columbia now continue out King Street to Conestoga Mall.

The University of Waterloo will be one df the first two institutions in Canada to get a industrial innovation centre, the federal minister for science and technology announced last Wednesday. Alistair Gillespie came on campus with local liberal candidates David Cooke and Dr. Frank Epp to announce a $200,000 grant to start the project. The centre would be an interface between research labs at the university, and industry. It would provide the business, legal and development expertise necessary to move ideas from the university into the market place. I The university is also setting up a Centre for Process Development, which is planned to be built on the north campus. The CPD would allow new processes developed by the chemical engineering department here to undergo a medium-scale pilot implementation, to test feasibility for in the larger industrial environment.

News roundup The Chevron out At the end of last fall’s term 82% of the highest turnout of students in ten years (38%) had voted for The Chevron to cease as UW’s official student newspaper with funding and office space. The Chevron was then expelled from the Canadian University Press (CUP) over the Christmas holidays, for harassing staff members and other violations of staff democracy. The Federation of Students maintains that The Chevron has embezzled approximately $4,00 of student money by retaining the $2.00 per regular student fee collected in the fall term, but slated for The Chevron in the winter term after students voted in January ‘to cease funding. Much student equipment was unaccounted for after The Chevron vacated their offices. The Chevron continues to publish from downtown Waterloo, renting space above the Hub Variety. The UW administration regards it as an off -campus publication and has requested The Chevron to remove references to the University of Waterloo from the front page of their paper.
Imprint In Students voted in an Imprint referendum March 21 -at least 18.6% did-and 77% voted for it to become their student newspaper, recognized by the Federation of Students and receiving a $1.75 per student per term levy starting in September. Imprint became a member of the Canadian University Press (CUP) early in March. CUP is an organization of 63 student newspapers across Canada. It provides a news service and national advertising through the Youthstream network. Imprint received $8,000 from the Federation of Students late last term which was part of the funding scheduled for the Chevron in the Winter term. Before the $8,000 Imprint was funded totally on advertising revenue. Imprint plans to publish every

Federation of Students Mark McGuire became Federation President in the winter term, proving that Rick Smit couldn’t last forever. McGuire is a third year architecture student and former graphicist for the Chevron and later, the Imprint. McGuire beat Peter Wigglesworth by 68 votes while Steve Beattie and Ian McNeil trailed behind. 15.9% voted. Wigglesworth is now Federation vice president and Beattie is Chairperson of the Board of Co-Op Services. All four candidates are on Council. There were elections for Council in HKLS, Co-Op Science, and Arts. A “ticket” of Anthony Waterman, John Pearse, and Chris McIntosh won in Arts as well as Tom Porteous. John Tromp was victorious in Science. Angela Arenberg came out on top in I-IKLS. In total, only 110 students voted.
Tuition Fee Increase Tuition fees are now up 5% (approximately $35.00) as Universities took the hint from the ministry of Colleges and Universities. Funding was only increased by 5 percent - less than the cost of inflation (about 9 percent) - thus forcing Universities to increase revenue. The increase was just an interim step before the release of the P.S. Ross Report which suggests fees be unhooked from formula funding and related to institutional costs. Your tuition might get much higher.
University Budget The following budgets were cut: Counselling Services by $25,000, Arts Centre by $33,000, Health Services: $15,000. Other departments (such as President Burt Matthews office) went up with inflation. An estimated 16.2 faculty positions, 52 TA’s, and 52 staff positions will be drop-
ped in the next year. Athletic fees were raised by $2.00 (though students had opposed the increased fee in a Federation referendum), while residence fees went up 5.5% and rent .at the Married Students Apartments increased by 5%.
Buses to Toronto Federation President Mark McGuire and a troupe of witnesses went to court for the extension of United Trails’ licence last February to enable the Federation to continue running buses to Toronto on Friday. United Trails had been found guilty of running a “recurring service”, a service only Gray Coach was allowed to offer by licence. Gray Coach, however, did not challenge United Trails after a concession was made by UW whereby Gray Coach can enter University property to pick up passengers. The Federation service, therefor, continues.
OFS loses at WLU Wilfrid Laurier students turned down an opportunity to join the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) last February. A referendum was held where 822 students voted “no” and 348 voted “yes”. Student president Mike Sutherland cited a “radical” image towards OFS for their defeat. The WLU student executive supported OFS in the referendum. UW’s Federation of Students is a member of OFS.
Houses Burn and Freeze Last February, 8 students were burned out of a house on 117 Albert Street. Later in March, 2 students inhabited a house without heat at 91 Willow Street as their landlord did not pay the gas bill. The landlord for both places was Murray Matthews, the president of the Waterloo North Progressive Conservative Association. Students in the two houses were paying $220 down payment in the summer with
$550 due in September and January. This would be illegal if the students are legally tenants under the Landlord and Tenant Act. While students at 117 Albert are demanding a rebate (for months they felt that they had paid, but when the house was burnt down), those at 91 Willow are taking Matthews to court. Matthews postponed last week’s court date to August 22. He is being sued for illegal rent deposit, lack of heat, and violation of fire safety standards.
OPIRG Pulls out
The Waterloo chapter of the Ontario Public Interest Research Group pulled out of the provincial organization of OPIRG last Monday. They are now called Waterloo PIRG. The local chapter felt the provincial organizationwas moving awayfrom OPIRG’s original m concepts and meant to eliminate research. The shift saves WPIRG $18,000 which would have gone to the provincial organization, thus allowing WPIRG to hire a researcher. WPIRG is funded by UW students and is located in the Physics building room 226. The organization-investigates problems of social concern.
Nuclear spillage at UW It wasn’t gxactlfthe China Syndrome, but there was a spill of radioactive material in Engineering I this March. A leaking pump gasket caused the leak during a 4th year chemical engineering project. The area was then roped off. One student was reported to have dosed 30 milliroentgens of radiation. 100 milliroentgens is said to be a safe weekly dose. Last spring there was another radioactive spill at UW when gallons of iodine 125 isotope leaked from a drum.
Feature Since the Iron age, men have been mining the Earth’s crust in search of its mineral wealth. However, during the hundreds of years that mining has been practiced, the methods for mining have remained relatively unchanged. Technological advances have enabled us to go deeper, dig faster, and extract previously unusable ore deposits, but basically, one still just digs a big hole in the ground, with lots of tunnels, and scoops the rock from the earth. Now, however, a new and totally different method for extracting the minerals civilization needs has been developed - miningthe ocean floor. This is not merely a method for applying our existing technology; it is a totally new era in resource extraction. Interest in undersea resources began when the research ship CHALLENGER recovered large quantities of fist-sized black nuggets from the Pacific Ocean floor, over a hundred years ago. Analysis showed them to be exceptionally rich in
manganese with large quantities of nickel, cobalt, and copper. What puzzeled them the most was that the .minerals were almost pure. At that time, only copper was commercially’valuable, but it was abundant in terrestrial mines; thus, the nuggets remained only a scientific curiosity.. -1 .. . ‘l’hey were virtually ignored for seventy years, untill a young graduate engineer in mining technology, John L. Mero, was on a dredging operation in 1950, which brought many of the strange nodules to the surface. Although the nodules had been known to oceanographers for many years, no one paid them any attention. Mero however, was fascinated by them, and puzzled as to how they could have been formed deep below on the ocean bed. After performing research on the deposits, he wrote a book which is considered the cornerstone on no-dule research. Today, this book is standard reading for hundreds of engineers and scientists involved in the effort to har-
vest these suddenly important nodules. Why have these nodules become so important? There are three reasons. The first is necessity. The world’s present supplies of extractable manganese, copper and nickel are rapidly running out. Some sources predict the major suppliers of copper will be drying out by the mid 90’s. The supply of manganese, a vital element for the production of today’s high strength steels, will be exhausted before the turn of the century. Also, until a few years ago, the price of nickel was skyrocketing, as suppliers were hard pressed to keep up with demand. All these predicted shortages and high prices have made it economically feasible to consider developing

worthless components. The advantage of this system over the other techniques being developed, is the low cost and simplicity of the machinery involved. This allows this system to be developed rapidly by any company with the resources available. The vacuum cleaner system, however, is more complex. This involves a large “sled” to be lowered to the sea-floor, on the end of a long pipe which is flexible at the bottom end. The sled is equipped with sophisticated T.V. systems plus a “shunt” device, which moves aside rocks too big for the “sled”. The “sled” is equipped with large nozzels which literally suck the nodules to the surface via the pipe. The only aspect of this system still under investigation is the methodology for bringing the recovered nodules to the surface. Engineers are presently testing two systems, a submerged pump and compressed air injection, both of which would create an upward flow up the pipe. Of the two methods described above only the vacuum cleaner has been tested successfully on a large scale. In February 1978, a project, sponsored by Ocean Management Inc. (OMI) used a sled ten-feet wide and thirty feet long which hauled 800 tons of nodules to the surface in a four month period. This was the first time nodules had been mined in quantity. The tests have not been without their problems. In the fall of 1977, Deepsea Ventures, a Virginia-based firm backed by foreign partners, had disappointing results with a sled system of

the technology for obtaining the nodules in sufficient quantities for wholesale industry. The extreme purity of the nuggets makes refining cheap and easy, lowering the production costs. The second reason for the sudden interest in these deposits is the development of deep sea extraction technology, primarily for the oil industry. Undersea repair technology, high definition television systems for use under water, and sophisticated remote-control devices are all examples of the techniques now available, necessary to mine the nuggets. Oil technology is not enough, however; new methods for obtaining the nodules, which lie an average of 5000 meters beneath the sea, are necessary. The attempts to get the nodules to the surface fall into two categories; “the vacuum cleaner,” and “the bucket”. The bucket is the simpler of the two and involves a ship dragging behind it a long loop of cable fitted with hundreds of large “buckets”. The cable is continuously being hauled in on one side of the ship, and payed out over the other, thus forming a continuous loop along which the “buckets” are slowly travelling. When this motion is combined with the forward movement of the ship, the “buckets” are lowered over the side, scraped along the ocean floor, and then are winched to the surface, with sand and small particles being washed out on the way up. The “bucket” is then dumped onboard the ship, where its cargo will be sorted into useful and

Before higher tuition levels are considered, I urge the Ministry of Colleges and Universities to conduct a comprehensive study into current financial barriers to higher education, and the possible sociological effects of increased tuition fees.

their own, and ended their tests without having been able to mine large quantities of ore. The OM1 tests were postponed when a short circuit in the power supply to the “sled” brought operations to a halt. The tests were encouraging nevertheless, with the sled having fulfilled many of the required tests, such as the allimportant examination of the two opposing lifting systems. Present plans by OM1 call for the first full production “sled” to be forty feet wide and capable of handling 250 tons per hour. This is still some years in the future, however, as OMI’s next goal is a system capable of lifting only 1000 tons per day. In the light of the setbacks dogging the vacuum system, a French proposal to use the bucket method has many of the groups involved in the mining effort feeling uneasy. Initially, the poor performance of the bucket method (continuous Line Bucket or CLB) caused most of the competing companies to write it off, but a proposal by Yoshio Masuda of Japan has been developed by the French. The idea is to improve the efficiency of the CLB method by using two ships to tow the bucket line over a wide arc. The French claim to have overcome the major problem which plagued CLB tests whenever they

The third reason for the sudden emergence into the limelight of the nodules is political. Since 1967, the development of undersea resources has been a topic of debate by the UN. Origi-’ nally, this debate centered on the question of who owned the resources under the sea floor. The large undersea oil deposits lie almost exclusively within most country’s 200 mile limits. However, such is not the case with these nodule resources. The expected magnitude of their exploitation has caused considerable debate within international circles over who owns ‘these resources.
power over the authority. In light of the fact that in order to achieve acceptable profits, a 40,000 sq kilometer “mine” would require an investment that would remain in the area for some 20 years, the US and its allies are demanding a 25 year mandate for the proposed regulations.

One of the current difficulties is that the UN is divided into two camps over the issue. If the sea floor is opened up for development the nations that will benefit will be the technologically advanced countries of the West. These nations, especially the USA, would like immediate access to these resources. Their motivation is that with the exception of Canadian Nickel, most of the sources of these minerals are in the Third World. Third World nations have been increasingly b,old in their use of the power that comes with supplying vital resources, The present involvement of the US in the Middle Eastern conflict is tempered by the fact that the OPEC nations control the petroleum lifeline which economy. sustains its Naturally, immediate access to Third World undersea resources would lessen the Western nations’ dependence on Third World countries. Expectedly, the developing countries are opposed to this. Many of these countries have economies that are tied irrevocably to these exported minerals. The loss of Western dollars could devastate their economies. Thus the battle lines are drawn. The arena is the Law Of The Sea Conference of the UN. In 1967, the International Seabed Resources Authority was established. However, it has been inactive, as there has yet’to be an agreement as to its composition. The US and the other developed countries maintain that exploiting the seabed is, like fishing, a high-seas freedom, and maintain that the ISRA should be a monitoring agency, capable only of assigning specific mining sites to applicant companies or government agencies.

Changes in the CC pub’s hours and performers proposed last month went into effect Monday. Based on figures cited by manager Rita Pub Schneider showing a loss of $12,000 last summer, the . pub will open at 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 7 p.m. Saturday. Fridays’ it will open at noon as usual. Schneider had charted the pub’s occupancy during the summer between 12 noon and 5 p.m. and had found that the service wasn’t being used enough to continue the 12 to 5 hours. Currently there is a pub operated by EngSoc in the E4 lounge (room 1327) that is open Wenesday to Friday from 12 noon to 3 p.m. It is open to all students. EngSoc president, Paul Johnson said they are hoping to open the pub all week‘ through
the summer from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Capacity for the pub is 50-60 people. Disc jockeys will perform throughout the week in the CC pub, with single or double performers on Wednesday nights, instead of costly live bands, aiming for a “more coffeehouse type of Mark atmosphere” McGuire, Fed president and pub committee member, told Imprint. Schneider plans to try this format “for a few weeks”, McGuire said. She will seek other alternatives if many students tell her it is unsatisfactory. .
McGuire also said Schneider is “looking into the possibilities” for improving the pub’s lighting and sound equipment and the dance floor. If students liked the disc jockeys, she would consider special equipment, such as a booth, for them. The pub committee, consisting of council members and other “interested parties”, has prepared a report about its decisions and the reasons behind them. It will be available at the Fed office, the turnkey desk, and Schneider’s office today. Lori Farnham
Stan Rodgers and group played the CC Pub beat on Wednesday evening as the first yroup in Denise Donlon’s new series of folky groups “to add a little class to the pub”. They drew a large audience - near capacity - with their music: a mixture of tender love sonys and floorstomping drinking songs. The drinking sonys went over the best, of course, and when the yroup playing anything the audience didn’t like they were ignored. Donlon thinks the students want something “classy”. The audience last niyht seemed to want traditional music to booze to. Next week Steve Hull, a UW student, plays honky-tonk in the pub. If he’s loud he’ll succeed. If he tells jokes, he’ll succeed. If he’s sensitive, he’ll bomb. Photo by John W. Bast
Folk acts planned The Board of Entertainment is trying to please the students this summer, with a sharp eye to economy. It is cutting its losses and concentrating on break-evenor-better projects. In place of bands, every Wednesday night at the pub the patrons will be exposed to more folky tunes. According to Donlon, the pub is unsuited to loud rock bands, and people will prefer softer strains. She hopes to add “some class” to the place. One of the motivations involved in the folk, rather than the rock, direction, is clearly money. “The highest I plan to spend is $200”, said Donlon. In the immediate future there will be the Comedy Cabaret at Waterloo Motor Inn featuring Second City Players. The last Comedy Cabaret was packed. with people turned away at the door. It is expected to make money, though several concessions are being made to break even - the dinner is being provided at cost, and considering that the seating , capacity is 550 and the troupe will cost $1,000, with the Federation providing sound and lights, the ticket cost of $8.75 appears reasonable. 50 tickets have already been sold without posters or advertising. The Federation will be running buses to Ontario Place throughout the summer. Tickets will be $6.00, $2.00 for admission (at a discount of $.50) plus $4.00 for the bus. It is designed to break even or lose money. The bus would leave at 6:30 PM and return by midnight.

lacks message for social criticism, or for an intelligent comment on the Viet Nam war, forget it. “The Deer Hunter” is riddled with platitudes an consistencies. The pur of the movie, it seems, to appease the collective American conscience. (This might well be the reason it was awarded “Best Picture” of the year.) All cynicism aside, “The Deer Hunter” manages to stay interesting and exciting for all of its three hours. Acting is, to a point, consistently convincing. The three characters, Steve, Nick and Mike, who prepare to leave for Viet Nam at the film’s beginning all come . from a Ukranian workingclass town in Pennsyl\vania. Known and unknowns alike do a good job of evoking the small-town atmosphere. Steve gets married just before they all leave, and Nick and Michael, together with a bunch of “the guys” go deer-hunting for the last time before they go to kill and maim and do lots of other fun things overseas. Of course, the view we get of Viet Nam and of the vietnamese is exceedingly distorted. “Our boys” are always the victims rather than the aggressors, and the north and south Vietnamese are displayed either as bloodthirsty gooks or as ignorant thronging hordes.

to varying degrees, but it is the deer hunter, Michael (Robert de Niro) who is the strongest. The change the war has made in him is noted, predictably, by his decision not to shoot a deer when he gets the opportunity in a second deer-hunting foray following his return from the war. The changes in Steve and Nick are more drastic and grueling. I won’t bore you with the gory details, but they contribute significantly to the emotional draining that the film is calculated to induce. The story/plot is, for the greater part, quite realistic
1i-1 w and, as a result, the movie is refreshingly “unHollywood”. In shocking contrast, the Viet Nam segments depend largely on fairy-tale-like Russian roulette casinos which unmovie’s dermine the realism (and apparently have no basis in fact). Much of Nick’s and Michael’s behaviour is inconsistent or difficult to justify, which also hurts the film’s credibility.
Finally, the end is a revolting “up” note which is easily the most objectionable and fatuous scene in the entire film. “The Deer Hunter” makes no more profound a statement about war than the equally tame “Coming melodrama, Home”. (If you want to see a stunning anti-war film made in the last few years, try to catch a screening of “Seven Beauties” - an Italian film by Lina Wertmuller.) “The Deer Hunter” is still showing for indecent ticket prices at the Cinema across from Market Square.

If this seems like a weak premise for a movie hang onto your chemise, for there’s more, and it’s even less plausible. “Get Out” is extremely funny, but mostly for the sheer horribleness of the l situations. More humour is derived from the campy nature of the reversal of cliche roles than from any arousal of sympathy for the characters. The movie is a spoof I hope not unintentionally - of dozens of other films, but it itself is no more than an amusing, harmless fluff. O.M. Nierstrasz

The Bee Gees Having Flown
The Robert Stigwood organization continues to draw mega-bucks from the clean-cut Strines. No one need question the notion that the Brothers Gibbs are the most popular recording artist(s) extant. As a result, we see little change in their masterplan to rule the world. The album’s music is lush dischoreography; tunes to - trip over the light fantastic. There are some changes of mood evident - in love, more in love, very much in love, altogether too much in love, and that most curious of conditions, being in love regrettably. Thus, Aussie & the Chipmunks bubble and squeak their way through the Big Hits “Tragedy”, “Too Much Heaven”, “Love Your Insides Out” and some other songs that are sure to be big hits. At least one can tell why people like this music. The Bee Gees have superlative production (Karl Richardson & Albhy Galuten did the job as usual, and are now the biggest selling record producers of all time, or so we are told - roll over George Martin.. . George who?); have fine music back-up (i.e. Blue Weaver, exStrawb, plays the interminable mellotron/Kraftwerk digital thumpathumpazipswish); and have a tremendous gift for lush melodies. Never mind the lyrics which are the most perfunctory imaginable! Ignore the spectacle of three balding blokes from Down Under (down indeed!) singing like three South American waiters who just got their balls caught in the swinging kitchen doors over by the best seats in the restaurant! It’s all very logical really. The logical extension of the lovely work that Motown used to do in the days that we were in our formative years listening to CHUMAM when there was no FM and the Supremes and Temptations RULED. It took the world some time, but the millstone-approach of Deee-troit has finally been adapted to the needs of the Disposable Society. Just why the Bee Gees’ latest release would appear to be far less enjoyable than the old Motown music hinges on the observation that this simply is not very happy music. With the Temptations‘ or the Supremes one felt motivated to sing along. Sure, they sung about lost love and illegitamate children and ghetto squalor but the singing had an indefinable quality that spoke of inner fulfilment and happiness and hope. Silly as it probably sounds, this fundamental je ne sais quoi was no doubt a primary factor in the enormous success that Motown enjoyed. Along the way, they made some real innovations regarding group singing and the adaptation of Phil Spector’s wall of sound to a more restrained outlook on the use of orchestration in popular music. Those innovations can be seen on this new LP by the Bee Gees, who adopt the form without the inner
Note the ad flyer packaged with the liner sleeve. Note the duplication of materials being sold - someone ordering the fan club package AND all the stuff on the other side (and little girls do this sort of thing nowadays thanks to the high cost of baby-sitters) is going to get ripped off. So What. Anyone trying to sing along with this popular music is going to need a pair of pliers with which to pinch his nose (or genitals), but the Fan Club doesn’t offer that. Yet. If a need is exposed for such an item, I’m sure they’ll order up 50,000 Bee Gees air- brushed pliers and move them all in a week. John Heimbecker
Roxy ‘Music Manifesto When Roxy Music was unveiled to the world in 1972, they were hailed as the prima donnas of avantgarde rock. Art schools had given the world some weirdos, but none quite like Roxy Music. Onstage, they dressed like Frank Sinatra of the 40’s. Musically, sounded like bubblegum rockers a la 20’s style. Unfortunately, the band split in ‘75 after their 5th album, Siren. to oursue solo I careers. Nowrthey are back together. Manifesto is the name of this new one, and it has the makings of a classic album. The question remains, will it be considered a good or
bad classic disc. Lead singer Bryar 1 Ferry seems to consider b Roxy Music just one of tht 3 many facets of his solo ret :ording career.

The band is trying to sell themselves to the masses, and, as a result, the music suffers. The album is dotted by cute little jingles, such as Cry, Cry, Cry and Dance Away, which are intended for AM radio play. (Why

don’t they be themselves?) The quintessential Roxy Music sound is contained, on the east side of the disc, as opposed to side one. It opens with the haunting title track. The song Manifesto lumbers along at a mellow pace laced with the harmonics and overdubs the band is famous for. If you are jutit exploring the scope of Roxy Music perhaps Manifesto is a good beginning. If you are heavily into the band consider Manifesto to be an overhyped event. Bryan Ferry

This four-piece outfit from Hamilton has made its mark on campus, having played a riotous South Campus Pub here in March.

disturbance on vinyl as they do in person. Hurrah! It’s good for one and all to raise a ruckus once in a while, and hats off to the boys for a good job well done. There are some major career caveats that shouldn’t escape the attention of Teenage Head, however. It should be pointed out that they run the risk of travelling a well-trodden path if they don’t establish more varietv in their next LP - no ballads, please, but-do consider the value to be found in playing in different tempos. As it stands, Teenage Head sound like a cross between Iggy & The Stooges and the Ramones. To make a living out of this, it would seem that they’ll need to firmly establish their own stvle. Otherwise, the musicianship is quite good, and there would appear to be lots of room to grow and the ability to do so if the band makes that sort of move within the course of the next LP’s recording. Note: the single version of “Picture My Face” is far superior to the version on the LP, which is too slow and easy to understand lyrically. John Heimbecker
