Man

and Animal

Mr. J.E. Leeson wrote in his letter to the Imprint entitled “Failed to Understand” on March 29, 1979: “Finally, creationism isn”t a theory at all, much less a fact because by the criterion that Dr. Schroeder himself mentioned, it is not empirically verifiable and is therefore epistemologically meaningless and academically worthless. While evolutionary theory is backed by indirect evidence and explains observed phenomena such as all

the geological and astronomical evidence that the universe is far beyond 6000 years old and far larger than a few light days, creationism would contradict many observed facts if it didn’t riddle itself with an infinite series of qualifications. To be meaningful at all, it must be open to the possibility of refutation, but all the evidence it ‘confronts’, or rather avoids, such as the facts mentioned above and the fact that Man is a specialized branch of the animal kingdom, are either ignored or explained away by excuses which protect the myth from confutation and even from contrary evidence.” Thus, by his own definition Mr. Leeson belongs to a specialized branch of the animal kingdom called Man. I believe that God created the animals each after its kind, but

man in His own image. This difference may explain the fact that, as Mr. Leeson puts it in his letter: “My (Leeson’s) arguments don’t seem to touch his (Schroeder’s) postulates at all, because he is arguing on an entirely different and separate plane of reasoning.” My reasoning is based on the conviction, that man created in the image of God has a transcendental mind. The senses of man perceive facts and the transcendental mind of man gives meaning to facts by hypothesizing. Thus, human knowledge is obtained by observing empirical facts and by testing intuitive hypotheses. The animal lives by instinct. It has an automatic consciousness as its actions are merely reflexes to the environment. For example, my dog will instantly chase any running animal regardless of its speed and consequently regardless of its chance to catch it. Animals learn by association of facts. If I rattle the feeding bowl, my dog comes running, associating the rattle with food.

Doug Harrison, Prabakar Ragde, Vince Catalfo, and the redoubtable John Heimbecker man the atomic blasts; Harry Warr, Bernie Roehl, John Rebstock labour mightily at the engines of the interstellar cruiser, their brows streaked with sweat, their anti-radiation coveralls sticking sweatily to their bodies. Coral Andrews, astro-computator, calls figures to Lori Farnham, manninq the ultrawave communicator. “Stabilize power output!” comes ’ the order from the Bridge, and Oscar Nierstrasz and his crew, H.D.L. Night, and Peter Sawras adjust the moderators in the power room. The Bridge, dominated by the star-spangled observation screen, is a scene of ordered confusion as Commander O’Donnell brings Captain Barkman reports of the ship’s functioning, while Imperial Heir Princess Sylvia stands regally aloof, yet encouraging her officers and crew. The single civilian on the bridge, in the space-black and silver of the Imperial auxiliary service, smiles slightly and remembers an earlier life - what comes to mind is the name “mad photographer JWB”. (Trudeau’s 68 campaign by J. Deterbick and Clark’s 79 campaign by Barkman on the cover. )

Thus, animals appear to be intelligent in learning empirical facts. However, when it comes to epistemology, empiricism provides the facts only, the transcendental mind of man creates the hypotheses, the basis of man’s knowledge. If man is a specialized animal, he has to reject the concept of the transcendental mind and consequently he can not accept the validity of hypothesizing. Thus, as his body shows resemblance to an animal, he may accept to be an animal by association of empirical facts through reflexing. But, how can he reflex.that evolutionary theory is backed by indirect evidence, that the universe is far larger than a few light days, that creationism would contradict many observed facts, etc.? The hypothesis that Man is not man, but a specialized branch of the animal kingdom can not be disproven within the framework of evolution, as no member of the animal kingdom is allowed to be a specialized

Waterloo The University of Waterloo reversed its policy on floating tuition at the Council of Ontario Universities meeting last month, only days after it affirmed the policy at the April Senate meeting. Burt Matthews, representing UW at the council of university presidents, moved that individual universities be free to set their own fees - without financial penalty, and without allowing additional fees to be subsidized by student aid. In an April 23 policy statement, Matthews wrote “The level of tuition fees at universities should be established by the government. Individual universities should not be free to set their own fees.” The policy statement went on to say that tuition for the same undergraduate programs should be fixed at a formula fee across the province, and that any increase in the formula fee should be

reflected in the student aid program. At present, universities are nominally able to charge higher fees, but any excess is deducted from the government grant. The COU recommendation would allow universities to charge any fee whatsoever, without affecting the amount of money they receive from the government. Students would only be able to claim the ‘formula’ fee for OSAP, however. Matthews said that universities wanted the right to set their own fees to protect their “autonomy.” He said that the motion to prevent additional fees from deduction under student aid was intended to discourage universities from raising their fees. Matthews said he didn’t expect any university to charge fees higher than the formula fee. However University of Toronto president James 0

fee float at COU meeting

Ham, who has “consistently stated that university fees should constitute a larger fraction of costs said Toronto would “at least consider” raising tuition above the formula level, if the ministry didn’t set the fee at what he considered acceptable. Asked about the effect of a raise on accessibility, he said that universities could set up a bursary fund to pay the fees not chargeable under OSAP, for the “truly

disadvaneconomically taged.” He said that unless universities were very careful not to set their fees out of range of what could be charged under OSAP there would be “results that I would decry as much as you would.” Ham expected that some universities would charge fees “somewhat higher” than the formula level. of Western University Ontario president George Cornell said that if his uni-

versity could set its own fees, it would consider raising them above the formula level. If fees were substantially above the formula level, a bursary might be provided, but he admitted that the funds made available to the university would be “very small”. The COU meeting also recommended that formula fees represent “no less” than the current proportion of operating income, and no more than 20 percent. For-

mula fees would be adjusted annually by the government. This recommendation would mean an automatic increase next year, since operating income must rise at least partially. It is similar to a motion proposed by Matthews to Senate last month. Senate rejected the proposal in favour of a tuition freeze pending a study on the impact of fee increases on accessibility.

Dave Reynolds says. Reynolds told Imprint Wednesday that 13 students are waiting for grant cheques - “it should be zero”, and 22 are awaiting the outcome of appeals for grant or loan assistance. He described this as the tail end of a “very unsuccessful” year. Aid processing for the summer is going smoothly, Reynold said. However, applications are down this summer, as compared to last. Only 673 had applied so far, with about two weeks to go before the deadline. 880 students in total applied for assistance last summer. Even that figure represents a drop from the 1126 students who asked for assistance in the summer of 1977. Applications for the 78/79 year were down 23 percent from the year before. Ciaran O’Donnell

Cabbage sandwiches

switches sub supphrs The Engineering Coffee and Donut stand is now selling submarines and kaisers made by Food- Services. EngSoc announcements claim the new sandwiches are of a higher quality and are *available in more varieties, however they fail to say where they come from. EngSoc President Paul Johnson states his society is refusing to name their supplier on the grounds students might dislike the Food Service product without giving it a fair try. So far five students have complained officially to EngSoc about the new subs. In a related development, EngSoc is close to signing an agreement with the Administration for a permanent C&D stand near the E4 Lounge. Construction is already under way to convert an old System Design Lab into the stand. EngSoc will pay $4300 to renovate the room and a further $100 per year or so for heating and

light. One term of the agreement calls for EngSoc to allow Food Services to submit bids to supply the products sold at the stand. When the stand was complete, EngSoc would have had to entertain tenders. They chose, however, to invite Food Services, Kitchener Dairies, and their supplier for the last five years, Mr. Sandwich to submit of-fers a week before the start of Spring term. A panel of Engineers chose the Food Services product as the best tasting, says Johnson. He states that price and past performance also entered into the final decision. Mr. Sandwich had supplied Village II, EngSoc, and MathSoc. Last summer the Administration attempted to shut down the Village II outlet. After Mort Taylor, owner of Mr. Sandwich, initiated legal proceedings, the Administration backed down. Eight months later when Taylor’s contract with

the Administration expired it wasn’t renewed. With EngSoc’s switch to Food Services, only MathSoc is now supplied by Mr. Sandwich. MathSoc president Greg Bezoff said he would not consider moving to Food Services claiming he is familiar with the offer Food Services made to EngSoc. Mr. Sandwich’s subs include mozzarela and lettuce. Food Services supplies EngSoc with subs containing cheddar and cabbage. Sherry Taylor is dissatisfied with the manner of tendering. She feels the offer to tender should have been more specific. “If cabbage and cheddar is what they wanted, we should have been able to offer a price for it.” Johnson disagrees. “I’m not in the sandwich business,” he says, “I rely on the expertise of the supplier to put together a sandwich people will like.”

JJ Long, intrequent mathNEWS columnist and publisher of the free mathNEWS, is hoping to find Engineers who don’t like the new subs. He’s written up a petition calling for EngSoc to return to their old supplier. Informed of this Johnson commented: “Long has no business nosing around Engineering.” EngSoc has been looking for a roe% to house a permanent C&D stand for over 3 years. The Board of Health has told EngSoc to provide refrigeration and running water for the operation of the stand. -Fearing vandalism to a fridge, EngSoc has been negotiating for the old lab room since November. Johnson would have preferred not to pay rent for the room, but sees it, given the circumstances, as a necessary evil. “All costs will come from C&D profits not EngSoc fees,” he says. John Rebstoclc

CKMS in campus network for May 22 election Network broascasts are nothing new. But now for the first time, a group of campus radio stations will be setting up a network broadcast. Four members of the Ontario Radio Campus Organization (ORCO) will be participating in the first campus radio network on the evening of May 22nd. The network has been set up to pool election coverage and the network will be operational from 8 pm to midnight next Tuesday. The four members are CKCU-FM (Carleton Universtiy), CKMU-FM (McMMaster University), CFRU (Guelph) and CKMS-FM (University

CKCU will be providing fifteen minutes per hour of national election coverage for the network and the ohter stations will be contributing 5 minutes per hour each, leaving one half hour per hour for local coverage. Besides being the first network broadcast ever undertaken by campus radio stations, this project will also be one of the most extensive programming projects put together for one broadcast. Over i’O people will be participating in the network on election night and reports will be phoned in to Ontario from across the

Joe Clark tells u’s that private enterprise will solve Canada’s energy problems. However, this would leave us at the mercy of the big multinational oil companies. Recently, Imperial Oil diverted tens of thousands of barrels of oil from the Maritimes to the United States. The Liberals take the credit for Petrocan, even though it was created as a concession to the NDP during the 72-74 minority government. They point to a recent find of natural gas in the Beaufort Sea, not mentioning that Petrocan is only a minority partner in a consortium of private corn-

Issues no issue in Tuesday’s The editorial support given the NDP by the Toronto Star underlines something many commentators have been saying about this election for some time: there is little to choose from among the three major parties. Would the biggest paper in Canada, owned by one of the biggest corporations, endorse a socialist party if it thought that the election of that PatY would threaten the status quo? The campaigns of all three Parties have been marked bY a stress on what is popular in the short-term, winning SuPPort from the middle of the road at the exPenseof Canada’s long-term interests. This is evident in their positions on all major issues: unemployment, inflation, energy, social policy, and Quebec. Take unemployment for instance. Joe Clark would stimulate the economy via tax incentives for homeowners. However, as the C.D. Howe research institute has said, the economy is already running at 90 per cent of capacity, and further tax cuts would only fuel inflation and drive the price of houses up. The problems with the economy are caused, as NDP leader Ed Broadbent has said, by a shrinking manufacturing sector and an excessive dependence on foreign capital. Canada has the largest national debt in the world. But Broadbent’s solutions, for the short term, sound like Clark’s, He would cut taxes and increase the deficit by billions of dollars. The money for this would come at double-digit interest rates from financiers in New York. None of the parties intend to take control of the economy out of the hands of a small group of companies, both Canadian (Weston, Argus, Thompson, Power Co.) and foreign (Imperial Oil, Ford, Into). The NDP proposes nafionalization of some resource industries, but one need look only as far as Britain to see that socialdemocratic solutions do not lead to industrial harmony and strength. If there isn’t enough secondary industry in Canada, then why doesn’t one of the parties propose developing it directly? If there will only be so many jobs in the short-term, why not cut the work week to 30 hours to share what jobs there are around? If there aren’t enough houses, then why not put some of those one million Canadians unemployed to work building them? By increasing the deficit, the Conservatives and Liberals would spur inflation, leading to increased hardships for the very poor and for those on fixed incomes. Overall, the NDP’s plan for an “industrial strategy” is the best to choose from, but they would still leave control of the economy in the hands of a few.

panies. But perhaps the most amusing stand on energy is provided by the NDP. They promise to cut off natural gas exports to the US immediately, but fail to mention that gas is extracted from wells at the same time as oil, and unless it is sold, it must be wasted. All three parties talk conservation, but each encourages consumption by proposing keeping oil prices below world levels. All three talk of alternative energy, but the Liberals, who have done a lot of talking on this subject, have spent only a tiny portion of their research budget on it.

The parties do not address the question of how Arctic petroleum will be transported to the south without endangering the environment and lifestyle of the natives. Joe Clark goes as far as to propose immediate development of the North, saying this will have no effeet on outstanding land claims. No doubt he will return the tundra to the Inuit after having turned it into a parking lot. Trudeau was elected in 1968 promising a “just society”. .However, the inequitable distribution of income in Canada has changed very little in 30 years. In 1951, the highest 20 percent of the

population earned 42.6 percent of the income, and the lowest 20 percent earned 4.4 percent, In 1975, the figures were 42.8 and 4.0 percent, respectively. Clark’s proposal to allow up’ to $5,000 of interest to be tax-deductible would, if anything, worsen this situation. Broadbent also proposes a discriminatory tax in favour of homeowners, and there is nothing in the NDP platform to shift the tax burden towards those who can afford to pay. Trudeau’s position on the constitution seems the best Clark of all three parties. denies Quebec the right to separate from Canada, but

avoids the “hypothetical question” of what he would do if a referendum went for separation. Although

Broadbenthas mu& the same stands as Trudeau, he downplays unity as a campaign issue. All this is from a man who said on the TV debate that Canada was facing the most serious threat of breakup in its history. Both Trudeau and Broadbent support a strong central government - something which will prove essential if the serious social and economic problems facing Canada are to be solved without the breakup of the country.

IN ‘79ELECTION ‘79 ELEt Heavv turnout

for all-candidates

About 170 people turned up Wednesday to hear the five candidates for Waterloo Riding promote themselves and attack the other parties. Frank Epp (Liberal), Mike Makarchuk (NDP) and Walter McLean (PC) attended the all-candidates meeting, while Rodney Wilton, Kitchener’s Libertarian candidate, filled in for Bonne Posma and Larry Hannant appeared for Marxist-Leninist candidate Brian Erdman. Each candidate was allowed seven minutes to address the audience.

He suggested that higher taxes on profits leaving the country should be used to encourage research and development and secondary industry in Canada, and to decrease the export of unprocessed natural resources.

Libertarian Rodney Wilton began by launching into an attack on Marxist-Leninist policy, then stated that the other parties also favoured “too much government,” although to a lesser degree. Libertarians believe in free enterprise and minimal government, Wilton said. They feel that laws should exist to protect an individual from the actions of another, but not from his own actions. One person should never be compelled to help another. The Libertarians’ goal is to

taxes. Wilton blamed Liberal overspending for unemployment and inflation.

Liberal According to Frank Epp, the most important issue is leadership. He identified four areas where leadership is required: management of and natural resources energy, the economy, social justice, and national unity, and cited Petro-Canada, beneficial effects of the dropping dollar, and the child tax credit and negotiations with Canada’s native peoples over land claims as Liberal contributions.

Party

Mike Makarchuk criticized the Liberal track record and attacked Trudeau for claiming to be the only man who could “get Canada out of the mess he got it into.” Under Trudeau, unemployment has doubled, Makarchuksays, resulting in nation-wide unrest and the separtist movement in Quebec. The Progressive Conservative campaign was full of “inconsistencies” Makurchuk said.

Progressive Conservative A “new sense of purpose would follow the election of a PC government in Ottawa, putting an end to a “decade of turmoil” under Trudeau, Walter McLean said. The Trudeau years, he said, have seen the growth of distrust “between government and government, between labour and manand every segagement, ment of society.” McLean said that in his co-operation experience, was much more effective than confrontation. He claimed the Conservatives would replace “one man rule” with a trustworthy “new team.” MacLean promised tax cuts, small business incentive programs, and reduction of government costs through zero-based budgeting.

Marxist-Leninist Chevron editor Larry Hannant denounced all the other parties as “parties of the rich,” singling out the NDP and Communists for duping the people. The Marxist-Leninist platform includes expropriation of all multinationals and millionaires and the formation of a workers’ and small farmers’ government, Hannant said. He pointed to Albania as a model society. Hannant complained that representatives of his party had been harassed. One candidate was arrested while distributing party literature, he said.

meeting mitments, though he would work for increased Canadian effort toward peace through the UN. Wilton supported the aircraft purchases and called for a strengthened militia. Hannant said the Marxist-Leninists would scrap the arms purchase and the NATO and Norad agreements. In response to a question about tuition fees, Hannant said the rich should pay heavily while workers attended free. Wilton was against all government funding of universities.

.

McLean favoured some increase in funding for research. He criticized differential fees for visa students. Epp noted that the provinces are not spending the funds Ottawa gave them for education, and so fees have risen. He agreed with higher fees for visa srudents. Makarchuk said only that government, industry and students should all pay some portion of education costs. The candidates also fielded questions on corporate concentration and Sunday’s televised “great Frank Morison debate. ”

Questions Asked about increased defence spending and in particular about the proposed purchase of fighter aircraft, Epp said he would go against his partys’ stand on this issue and try to limit defence spending. Makarchuk agreed the fighter planes were unnecessary but pointed out that the armed forces were needed to defend Canadian integrity. said Canada McLean should not try to get out of its NATO and Norad com-

Election Mike Makarachuk

Bonne Posma The federal government should “get out of the education business”, according to Bonne Posma, Libertarian candidate for Waterloo. This would mean no more federal funding to the universities or financial help in the form of student loans, aid, and scholarships. Universities should be owned by groups of private individuals, and run on either a profit-making or a charitable basis, Posma said. Costs would remain reasonable because “universities would have to compete for students.” Asked what students could do if they could not afford higher tuition fees caused by private ownership of universities, Posma said they should get the money from their parents, borrow it, find a job for a year or two, or “work harder.” “People should be prepared to spend a lot of money” to get a university degree, he said. “If they don’t have it, then it’s tough.“’ Posma said government controls limiting entry to professions should be removed to enable students to get a job in their chosen field before graduation. For example, law students should be permitted to practise law after the first year af their program. Following the Libertarian principle that government should be responsible only for defence and judiciary matters, Posma would immediately reduce government spending from the current 40 billion to an estimated 3 or 4 billion dollars a year. He would slash all foreign aid, cut out funding to the CBC and Canada Arts Council, and freeze hiring of all civil servants. The post office, Petro-Canada, Air Canada, and other crown corporations would be sold to the highest bidder. Private individuals would insist on running them at a profit, Posma said, not as another expense for taxpayers. Salaries of all senior government officials and MP’s would be “negatively indexed” temporarily to the inflation rate. Within “one or two years” Posma expects that Canada would have a balanced budget of about two billion dollars. Asked about unemployment, Posma said he would do “nothing specific” to solve the problem, but a “more wholesome economy” based on laissez-faire capitalism and removal of government controls on industry would create the necessary jobs. Posma feels that there is no world energy crisis. “The government should get out of energy,” he said. Individuals should collect funds to do research into alternative sources of energy. “If the -price rises too high, people will be motivated to find other sources,” Posma said. There is no serious danger of Quebec separating from the rest of Canada, Posma feels, but if a referendum were held, a “yes” to separation would be honoured by a libertarian government, as long as the rights of minority language groups in Quebec were respected. In Libertarian thought, Posma stressed, the sole function of government is to protect the rights of all people living in a country. A libertarian government would be noninterventionist, stepping in only when crimes against groups or individuals occurred. It would not “do anyone any favours” and would not give concessions to minorities, such as “farmers, Gay Lib, small business, and students.”

Canada is fast becoming a “banana republic”, according to Waterloo New Democrat candidate Mike Makarachuk. Makarachuk said that secondary industry in Canada is shrinking, while laws are becoming more repressive. He said that now we have a trade union leader, CUPW president Jean Paul Parrot, in jail, just as in underdeveloped dictatorships. The long-term cure to unemployment is getting control of our economy back from multinationals, Makarachuk said. An NDP government would demand that for every $1 million taken out of the country, $1 million be invested in secondary industry or in research and development inside Canada. He cited the example of lumber, which he said is shipped to Japan for processing, and then shipped back to Canada as furniture. Canada must follow Japan’s example of being more competitive by doing more research and automating industry. In the short term, the NDP would inject money into the economy for job creation. Makarachuk said the program, involving projects in municipal works and transportation, would cost between $5 and $7 billion in the first year, and would create 500,000 jobs. He said the additional deficit would be eliminated, via higher taxes and lower UIC payments, within three to four years. The NDP would fuel the university system with more research dollars, alleviating financial restraint. Asked what this would do for liberal arts students, he said “we can only use so many teachers.” However, Makarachuk said that everyone has the right to a university education in the field of their choice. He felt that a, recent proposal to raise the student loan limit to $2200 a year was reasonable, but suggested that repayment not be mandatory if the student didn’t find a job in the field trained for. Makarachuk said the NDP would immediately cut off all exports of oil and natural gas to the United States. Natural gas comes out of wells with the oil, and unless it is used immediately, must be wasted. When this was pointed out, Makarachuk admitted that continued exports might be needed until a pipeline to Atlantic Canada was built. Makarachuk spoke in favour of solar power and alternative energy sources. The NDP program calls for a moratorium on nuclear power until the feasibility of waste disposal is established. Makarachuk felt that there were both cultural and economic reasons for the separatist sentiment in Quebec. He said the Liberals had launched ‘con-commissions” instead of studying the experience of other countries, such as Switzerland and Belgium. He said the most important issue was economic, and with a “more rational central government” separation would not be a threat. Makarachuk, a lawyer, felt that repatriation of the constitution was a “sham issue”. Asked about an entrenched Bill of Rights, he said “sure, I’d like to have it” but that unless the courts were prepared to enforce it “it doesn’t mean a damn thing.” He is against the use of force to keep Quebec in Canada. Makarachuk defended an NDP plank calling for the right to strike during the term of a contract on “any issue not clearly and specifically” covered in the contract. He said that workers would not abuse it because they would only strike over “basic rights”. Makarachuk said that both sides were wrong in the recent postal strike. Poor management had led to “irrational demands” by the union, and “instead of consensus and consultation we have confrontation.” Makarachuk cited Britain as an example of a country where consultation replaces conciliation. Asked about the recent winter of crippling strikes, he said they were forced because workers’ wages were falling behind inflation. Makarachuk explained the recent election of Margaret Thatcher, a proponent of free enterprise and limitations on union rights, by saying that the Labour government made a mistake by not giving into the union’s demands soon enough.

Walter

McLean

Walter McLean, Progressive Conservative candidate for the Waterloo riding, is minister of Knox Presbyterian church and is an alderman on the Waterloo City Council. He is also co-founder of the Canadian University Students Overseas (CUSO) and a past CUSO field director. He is a graduate of the University of British Columbia, has a Masters degree from the University of Toronto, and has done post-graduate work at the University of Edinburgh. On the question of unemployment, McLean felt that it was necessary to “get the economy moving again,” and that in a healthy economy jobs would be no problem. He outlined a “youth service corps” program, which would provide for a year of “national service” in Canada or overseas. The cost of the program would be met from existing funds for youth employment programs and unemployment insurance. McLean said that government spending was the cause of inflation, citing in particular the Post Office. He placed the blame for this upon the Trudeau government. When asked how he would curb government spending, he emphasized the need for five-year fiscal plans, and the use of “sunset laws” that would eliminate crown corporations and government departments which could no longer justify their existence. He also said that the civil service could be reduced by attrition over the next few years. McLean sees tax cuts to individuals and job incentive programs to industry as the primary means of stimulating the economy. He put particular emphasis on the PC’s proposal to make mortgage interest and property taxes tax deductible as a means of “improving the morale” of the country. On energy, McLean believes that Canada should be self-sufficient by 1990, and sees the tar sands and oil pipelines as being major aspects of this program. He also believes in tax incentives for home insulation, and the eventual development of wind power, biomass, and tidal energy sources. He feels that R & D should be increased’from its present level of less than 1% to 2.5% during the next 5 years, and stresses university participation in research and development. McLean feels that the question of Quebec, the constitution, and national unity should be given a lower priority, and that “we must get the economy going before we tackle the question of national unity.” He adds that Quebec has no constitutional right to vote itself out of confederation, and that if it declares independence we should discuss it with them, and ultimately use economic sanctions. McLean outlined no specific programs concerning university funding outside of R & D. He did, however, say that university tuition fees should not increase beyond the present level and that access to university should be based upon ability.

Epp

Frank Epp, Liberal candidate in the riding of ‘Waterloo, is a president of Conrad Grebel College and chairman of the Mennonite Central Committee (Canada). He is a graduate of the Mennonite College in Winnipeg and has a bachelor of Theology, as well as an M.A. and PhD. Hyserved as a minister, radio broadcaster, and editor of a Mennonite newspaper. On the issue of unemployment, Epp says that despite high unemployment statistics, there has also been a high job creation rate in the last lo-15 years. He cites the youth population bulge, high immigration and dropout rates, and an increase in the number of women seeking jobs outside the home as contributing factors to the high unemployment figures. Epp said that “the unemployment picture is not as serious as the use of statistics would seem to indicate, though it is certainly a serious problem.” On the question of student unemployment, he pointed out that the Liberal government has over 20 separate programs to provide employment for youth, and says that a total of $225 million will go into job creation for young people this year. Epp feels the economy is “generally moving exports and quite well”, and points to “soaring” near-capacity manufacturing levels as examples. He sees the devaluation of the Canadian dollar as positive, adding that it has “made us competitive again. ” He expects the value of the Canadian dollar to rise. Epp feels that the Liberal government’s programs to fight inflation by curbing government spending and its wage and price control program of a few years ago have been effective. When asked about deficit spending, Epp pointed to the 700% increase in oil prices in the early ’70s and the election of a separatist government in Quebec (which he feels has changed the investment climate) as contributing factors. He blames the increase in food prices on poor climatic conditions and the declining value of the Canadian dollar. Epp feels that Canadian food prices are still “the lowest anywhere in the world.” On energy, Epp says that Canada, is “almost self-sufficient in energy now.. . though we ship oil in on the east and out on the west.” He projects an expenditure of $180 billion in the next 15 years on energy, including solar and other alternate energy sources. He also sees conservation as being a major part of Canada’s energy plan. National unity, a favorite subject of the Liberals generally, drew substantial comment from Epp. He stressed the need to “repatriate and revise” the constitution, and feels that the weakening of the federal government would weaken Canada as a whole. He feels great emphasis should be placed on the equalization of the rich and poor regions of the nation, and regional disparities minimized. On Quebec, he feels that the province has “certain legitimate aspirations and needs, having to do with language, culture, and finance.” He feels that these should be guaranteed by the constitution and by Canada, in the context of a federal state. He also feels the term ‘sovereignity association’ is vague and contradictory, and believes we should do “anything possible” to prevent the separation of Quebec from the rest of Canada, though he says that he could not personally condone anything that would involve Canada in a civil war. He believes “police action” would be justified. Epp feels that there should be a stronger federal role in education, and thinks that co-ordination is lacking at present. Epp believes that Canada has a role to play in the education of third-world students, but adds that it _ is a Canadian role, not the responsibility of any one province. When asked how he, as a Mennonite and pacifist, felt about the Liberal government spending $2.3 billion on new fighter planes and planning to increase military spending 12 % in the next few years, Epp says, “I’ll probably bug them about that,” and compliments Mr. Trudeau on removing all nuclear weapons from Canadian soil and keeping Canada’s defence spending “so low for so many years.”

Brian Erdman The makeup of the university system would change, if the Workers and Small Farmers Government advocated by the Marxist-Leninist party of Canada came into being. A far higher proportion of students would be of working class origin, and education would be “closely integrated with socially productive work. ” Tuition would be free for workers, but students from wealthy families would have to pay the full costs of their education. Student loans would be abolished, along with all forms of consumer debt. Waterloo Marxist-Leninist candidate Brian Erdman said that full employment would be provided by the state. He said that unemployment is “inherent to the capitalist system”, in which the sole basis for enterprise is maximum profit. However, Erdman couldn’t cite any specific activities his People’s Republic of Canada would undertake to employ the more than one million Canadians now out of work. He said only that employment would be guaranteed by having a centralized government and a planned economy. Erdman, an executive member of the local Brotherhood of Railway, Transport, and General Workers, said that the worker’s government would declare all foreign debts null and void and would make future foreign investment in Canada illegal. The People’s Republic would trade with other states on the basis of mutual benefit, but would have no relations with the US, the USSR, or “fascist states”. The Marxist-Leninists recognize Quebec’s right to self-determination, and would immediately grant the land claims of native peoples. Elected representatives would be paid “working men’s wages” and would be subject to recall. Erdman said that the party’s program calls for freedom of speech and freedom of political opinion. Asked about his party’s slogan “Fascists have no right to speak,” Erdman said “these guys are criminals .” The new government would deprive all “traitors to the country” and those responsible for “crimes against the people” of their rights. Erdman wouldn’t reveal whether independent political parties would be allowed in the People’s Republic. He said the party’s program didn’t say anything about that. The economic program calls for nationalization of banks, resource industries, and the transportanetworks. Small tion and communication businesses would be allowed to exist, but the large monopolies would be expropriated without compensation. Don’t expect a People’s Republic on May 23, Erdman warns. The party sees elections as merely one form of struggle against the “propaganda of the rich”. The programme of “revolutionary change” can only be implemented by the “mass actions of the people”, since the crisis facing Canada is too grave to be sorted out by the existing means.

The Arts Toronto On the surface, Greek music, slow, haunting, melancholy, has little in common with the livelier, more fiery music of Latin America. But the Companeros, a Toronto-based group, think differently. ’ The group began in January, when Greek and Chilean musicians playing at the Trojan Horse Coffee House at 179 Danforth in Toronto realized that there was an understanding in rythm and meaning between the songs of two distinct cultures. They decided to combine their programs, which had previously been performed on different nights. Since January, they have been rehearsing nearly every day. They gave their first concert April 28 in Toronto, and will be on campus (in the Theatre of the Arts) May 31. Their program is a mixed revolutioone, including naryballadsfrom Greece and Latin America, Italian partisan songs, and songs from the Spanish civil war, as well as instrumentals and written by group songs members. Some pieces are also sung in English. Group members estimate about half their audience is English-Canadian. The Companeros protest dictatorship and oppression in their songs. There is a great love of freedom and of their countries in their music, mingled with sorrow at being far away from home, as in “cancion a Valparaiso” by Marcel0 Puente: “Valparaiso, my port city/Now let me be the one to sing for you/To look at your hills, remember you/To see your future on the face of every child/And

“Bad Cinema” sketches. The title is that of one of H.G. Wells’ great prophetic novels, and his name appears prominently in the To be absoadvertising. lutely fair to Mr. Wells, there seems to be no connection between this film and the book, or with the infinitely superior 1930 version which pops up now and then on the Campus Centre all-nighters. The plot is too MickeyMouse to be worthy of Wells, who must be spinning in his grave by now. It concerns an era when the earth has been decimated by repeated wars and humanity lives in domed settlements on the moon. Somewhere there is a planet called Delta Three, where a villain called Omus (Jack Palance) wants to be absolute dictator of the Universe. Against the wishes of the moon government, a wise mentor named Dr. Cabal1 takes off in an experimental spaceship with two young proteges, Kim and Jason (never mind their names,

you’ll never hear from them again,) to stop him. Starting from the nowobligatory Star Wars-type opening with a transverse scan of a huge spaceship, we are treated in rapid succession to a “master computer” speaking in a phaseshifted pseudo-mechanical voice (closeups of its threefootsphere show bulky ITT chips, already becoming obsolete), Jason trying to order the destruction of an incoming ship by yelling, “C’mon, Lomax, cut the red tape! ,” and the ship coming from space and blowing a hole in the dome in such a manner that no explosive decompression takes place and the robot pilot can be salvaged and restored to full operational status by a team of electricians who fix” it by shooting juice through it and laughing as sparks fly. Other delights included the spaceship “banking” to make a turn in airless space, fights with warrior robots who clomp around on two legs, apparently unarmed, and kill people by smashing them with rocks, and of

course, the usual wooden acting, cheap sets (Delta Three looked exactly like an overripe orange) and sound effects in hard vaccuum. One needs to sit through two hours of this to appreciate how trivial it really was. As if its cartoon view of science fiction were not damaging enough, this film is an all-Canadian effort (and as such, eligible for the Half Back program which gives discounts using old Wintario tickets). It’s a blow below the belt for those of us who defend Canadian culture, because one film like this cancels out a hundred good NFB shorts. Luckily, the only clues to its origin are the opening scenes shot at Ontario Place and indirect references in the closing credits, which nobody would bother reading. As the dozen or so people left in the theatre at the film’s conclusion walked out wishing they had stayed home and watched the last of the game Montreal-Boston Stanley Cup semifinal series, the theatre staff’was nowhere to be seen. Pity. Had one been around, I would have asked for my losing Wintario tickets back- Prabhakar Ragde

Champ’ is thirty years out of date

The Champ first hit the theatres of America during the early years of the Depression. The movie was quite a success; Wallace Beery was awarded the 1931 Oscar for best performance by an actor. The film’s popularity resulted, in part, from its ability to allow the audience to cry in sorrow and in joy, to feel heart-warming emotions in a heartless period of our history. And it is a formula that does not work now. The Champ, with such capable and proven players as Jon Voight, Faye Dunaway, Jack Warden and Arthur Hill, is a punchless film that wastes both the abilities

The Shape of Things to Come, no longer playing at the Lyric Cinema in Kitchener, was preceded in its final showing by two trailers for other movies and a Mr. Magoo cartoon. It is possible, should one wish to waste the energy involved in making the connection, to ‘draw a parallel between the way Mr. Magoo took his myopic and incorrect view of the world seriously and the way the producers and director of this movie took this movie seriously, possibly by looking at its potential audience through bottle-bottom spectacles. A few of you may remember with shudders CTV’s ill-fated series The Starlost. Five episodes of that series may approximate this film, except that the former would have periodic commercials to break up the tedium. Put simply, Shape of Things may well be the worst science fiction film I have ever seen. It wouldn’t even make the grade on one of Saturday Night Live’s

of the acting crew and the story introduced in the early stages of the production. The former boxing champion has an eightyear-old son by a woman who left and remarried seven years ago. Upon seeing her son, the mother wants her child back. What could have become an important study soon decays into plot twists and deviations designed solely to make the audience weep. These include: son crying over present, son crying over injured horse, son crying over gambling dad, son crying over jailed dad, son crying over reunion with dad, ad nauseam. This film’s obsession with tears drastically limits the performers’ abilities to truly act; they become more like- tools than real characters. All supporting roles are as wooden as trees, even when being called upon to cry their eyes out, time and time again. Disregarding the endless moments of joy/ sorrow, the plot itself moves sluggishly. Countless minor episodes occur between meetings of son and mother, and, when not involving tears, these episodes are banal and marked by such comments as “TJ’s fine”, which seems to be repeated ad infinitum The champ visits a boxing gym in the early frames of the movie, and yet never gets involved in the ring until the finale. The only family trai; shown by the plot is competition for the son. The relationship between the three, and especially between the parents, is not satisfactorily resolved. The final sequence, although touching and tearwrenching (again!), is rather disappointing and leaves one wondering if the solution it presents is the desirable one. I suppose all films, good or bad, have bright spots. Ricky Schroder, as the son TJ, gives an ebullient and quite remarkable performance for the size of his role, a leading part. Introducing Schroder to the public may be The Champ’s only redeeming quality. I’m told that The Champ is director France Zeffirelli’s first American film. Let’s hope it’s his last.

,. . The Arts Stiff Little Inflammable

Fingers Material

While going through a box of old papers the other day, I came upon a sheet of computer paper on which was scribbled the rough draft of a review of the Sex Mind The Pistols’ “Never Bollocks” in which I called it the most important album of the last five years. It was submitted to the dear departed Chevron and never heard from again. Now, this album can be vaguely compared to that one in a very nice concept-type review, but that’s not why I mentioned it. This band got their name either from William Burroughs or from a line in a Stranglers’ song about necrophiliacs that goes, “If it weren’t for your stiff little fingers / No one would know you were dead.” They hail from Northern Ireland. They play what some call punk rock. And they’ve got to be the angriest musicians I’ve ever seen. Iggy Pop used to be angry, but he got wrecked by the needle and a five-year timelag. The Sex Pistols used to be angry, but a few thousand pounds later they succumbed to the “Gee whiz. Look at me. I’m gross” put-on that the star machine demanded, and ended up in self-parody long before they had anything to parody. Tom Robinson used to be angry, but he got successful, found .he liked pulpitthumping, got into the clutches of Todd Rundgren, and 1 don’t even want to think about that. But these they’ve come to !!PYS maturity in the midst of a civil war, and if that isn’t sufficient artistic motivation then you’ve been living in the ‘70’s too long. Punk is at its best when it has a political basis; I mean, who can take our own Diodes seriously when one finds out that they came from the Ontario College of Art. This record is full of great screaming guitar, crashing drums, and all the rest, including what are coming to be two essential badges of a serious punk band: a song berating the poor record company for keeping the product from the masses (as per the Clash’s “Complete Control” and Rotten company doing “EMI”) and a modified reggae song (here SLF’s version of Bob Marley ‘s “ Johgny Was” edges out the Clash’s version of Junior Murvin’s “Police And Thieves”). “Alternative Ulster” may become the “My Generation” of the next decade, one of the all-time crank-it-out songs. What more can I say? I can quote you some lyrics: They play their games of power They mark and cut the pack They deal us to the bottom But what do they put back? or tell you to go out and buy this album, but it’s at present only available on import (and moving quite well locally despite a $12.98 sales w * But I get this sneaking suspicion that every time I give some unheard-of group a rave review, 50% of the people who bother reading it forget the name of the

Another 40% forget it in the next week, and at most a small handful will actually get as far as picking the disc up in Record World, looking at the cover, and saying, “Hey, didn’t the Imprint like this?” “Yeah, that’s the one.” “Oh.” And they’ll look at it for a minute or so, put it back and pick up Cheap

How noble of me. Meanwhile I’ll write more rave reviews to get my name in print in nice heavy boldface, and someday at a party someone will come up to me and say, “Hey, aren’t you the guy who writes about all those strange and wonderful bands?” “Yeah, I’m the one.” “Oh.” And he’ll look at me for a minute or so, amble into the kitchen, and pick up another beer.

Rocky! Fans of the Rocky Horror Picture Show turned out in substantial numbers last Friday night, as the live stage show made its appearance at South Campus Hall. Attendance was surprisingly good considering the show had been booked just two days before its appearance, leaving little time for advance publicity. The show was done in cabaret style, and is based upon the live stage show that drew capacity crowds in Toronto’s Rex Danforth Theatre in March. The cast is basically the same as the Toronto version, and all the songs and even some of the dialogue have been retained. Having seen the show in Toronto, I was at first a little skeptical as to whether it could be put on in SCH, which provides limited stage and technical support. I was pleasantly surprised. True, most of the staging was limited by the space available, and consequently some of the plot had to be sacrificed, but overall the show held together exceptionally well. Itwas certainly well-received. The audience demanded two encores, including a rousing “Time Warp” that had dozens of people dancing on tabletops. The show is currently on tour throughout southern Ontario, and had in fact been playing at the Coronet earlier in the week. The presentation in SCH suffered some technical difficulties. Halfway through “Sword of Damocles” they blew a fuse. Suddenly plunged into darkness and without amplification, the cast kept going, showing their enthusiasm and determination (which the audience appreciated). The house lights were quickly brought up, and the head technician bolted across chairs and tables with an extension cord, looking for the nearest wall outlet. The audience, understanding what was happening, helped out by passing the cord hand-over-hand. With their sound running again, the show regained its momentum, though the lack of proper lighting did throw the cast off a bit. The Federation of Students, which sponsored the event through its Board of Entertainment, actually broke even on the venture and the show was so successful that it will return again in the Fall term. Board of Entertainment chairperson Denise Donlon was pleased. “It is seldom that a show is booked less than a month before the show date, but in this case we felt that only the Rocky Horror Cabaret show could be pulled off successfully in two days. The cast was a delight to work with,” Bernie Roehl
