One year ago today, Imprint first appeared on campus. A lot has happened since we published from the SciSoc office and the Federation orientation tent. From an alternative paper we became UW’s recognised student newspaper. This was the first time in Canada that an already established student newspa‘per had been supplanted by an alternative. We also became members of the Canadian University Press, an organisation providing an- invaluable exchange of information. Imprint is now incorporating under the name “Imprint Publications, University of Waterloo”. With this, we will become a great example of a student paper autonomous of the student government. Student funding will start in September, enabling us to pay off a large sum we will owe the Federation for a $16,000 typesetter that should be instalied this month. As always, Imprint stresses student involvement. As a free press paper, Imprint welcomes a wide variety of student opinion andideas. Working on your student newspaper can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

Friday

Because of a disagreement over rental fees, the societies on campus have decided to boycott the South Campus Hall for all of including their events, dances and pubs. SciSoc, EngSoc, MathSoc and the Geography Association endorsed the decision, made at BENT’s May 2 meeting. William Deeks, director of the Administrative Grout, was informed of the decision Wednesday. Mark Mc(luire, Federation president, said that he and Denise Donlon, entertainment programmer (who is attending a conference and was not available- for comment), had a meeting with Deeks to discuss the $150 fee groups have to pay to rent the South Campus Hall for a night. and McGuire Donlon argued that since any group that rents the hall also has to pay for all operating costs (cleanup, bar services and security), the rental fee is “unnecessary”, merely providing more cash for the administration. They asked for an end to the rental fee, or at least a reduction. Donlon provided figures showing that the last three pubs held at the Waterloo Motor Inn lost $720.54, while the three held at the South Campus .Hall lost $2000. The Waterloo Motor Inn charees no rental fee, no

cleanup, and -does not require that members of its staff be present. Deeks countered that since Bent’ was making a profit, it could “afford to pay the rent, ” McGuire said. Deeks suggested a reduced rent and “other financial considerations” for the administration. The societies feel that all

extra charges are u’nnecessary, and say that unless the administration “meets or betters” the deal offered by the Waterloo Motor Inn, they will no longer use the South Campus Hall. The societies and BENT are in a good bargaining position because they have the alternative of dealing with the Waterloo Motor

Inn, McGuire said, but they would like to schedule more on-campus events if possible. Donlon was planning a series of weekly South Campus Hall pubs for the fall before she heard that the rental fee would not be done away with, McGuire said. . McGuire and Donlon plan to meet again with Deeks to

We want to take advantage of their attention while we still have it.” “Basically, we feel that they should spendless time on internal reorganisation and more time defining the problems - for example, accessibility and quality,,” said McGuire. “Whenever the government publishes a f paper or a report such as the Plan of Organisation for the impending merger, they state that their goal is to ensure universal accessibil. ity to high-quality postsecondary education, but until they address this goal outright, it’s just so many words on a page." The merger has apparently already been undertaken as far as possible without legislative assent. Because the government is hoping to receive as many submissions as, possible from student groups, as well as parent and teacher groups and administrators, no decision is expected for quite some time.

Council holdsthe fort y The eight student councillors who showed up for the- June 3rd meeting approved a tripling of the premium for the supplemental health care plan, at the same time reducing the value of benefits slightly. _

Numerous OPP and Regional police kept watch as approximately 1500 demonstrators protested the building of the Darlington Nuclear power station, slated to be the largest nuclear plant in the world when -completed late in the next decade. The protest was organized by the Greenpeace organization and the Ontario Non-Nuclear Network and coincided with the international anti-nuclear day. The march was used to publicize the fact that no environmental assessment has been made and that Ontario Hydro has been irresponsible in not allowing free access to information concerning the safety of the plant itself as well as any disposal methods. Photo by Randy Hannigan

This was the result of a chain of events which began in April when Confederation Life, the insurer, informed the federation’s its insurance agent of assessment of the increased premium. In justification of this increase Confederation Life presented figures showing that in the first seven months of the plan from September 1978 to March 1979 incurred claims totalled $189,037, -while premiums came to only $59,916. As a result the company is demanding a new rate of $6.24 per term. Federation President Mark McGuire reacted to the proposed fee increase by exploring ways to reduce the premium increase. Information from Confederation Life indicated that claims were equally split between vision care and drugs. Confederation Life

quoted a series of lower premiums for a number of reduced benefit packages, including elimination of free glasses, changing to one pair of glasses every four years, increasing the deductible amount of drug prescriptions to $2.00 (it is currently $1.60) and having a $25.00 per year deductible maximum on prescription drugs.

for a smaller benefits package. Fifteen-different firms were contacted when the UW plan was put in place last year.. When this information was presented to the nonquorum council meeting those present unaminously agreed that the plan should remain basically the same and accepted the premium increase.

and raising the deductible port-ion to $25.00 per year for prescription drugs. No effort was made to seek quotes from other companies. According to McGuire this was because the plan still compared favorably with other plans, and that the OFS had recently found that Confederation Life gave the best deal for a proposed plan for all OFS members.

If you are a Max Webster fan, forget the Federation’s planned an’d advertised concerts on July 4 in Humanities Theatre. They are cancelled. Like Dan Hill before Webster, Max has become too big and too expensive to play small theatres and therefore, cancelled. Also, the Humanities Theatre cancelled out for the night Webster was to appear.’ The Cooper Brothers also cancelled for the Federation’s last pub at the Waterloo Motor Inn. The lead singer’s wife was having a baby. Massachusetts replaced the band to a poor turnout of about 100 people. More losses for Bent. Other cancellations include the Federation’s Bus Trips to Ontario Place: Blood Sweat and Tears, Jerry Jeff W a lk er, (who actually cancelled out on Ontario Place), and Downchild Blues Band. A maximum of five tickets were bought; the Feds need . at least ‘thirty tickets sold per trip.

The Ontario Experience ‘79 work program is said to employ 13,610 young people in the province at a cost of $19.5 million. The program has hired at least 49 UW students mostly for work under the ministry of energy and the Environment. UW students will be doing various work from studying diesel exhaust, to investigating endangered species such as the carrier pigeon, to constructing an earth-sheltered dwelling, to surveying the herpet-fauna of the Waterloo Region, to the promotion of water and energy conservation, to from water by bimetallic generating hydrogen catalysts.

Faced with the prospect of a serious water supply problem in the future, the Ministry of Environment and the regional municipality of Waterloo are taking steps to inform residents of the situation and to develop conscious“conservation ness” amoung households and industries in Waterloo to help alleviate the problem. One such step is the establishmentzof a Water Conservation Centre at the University of Waterloo. This centre is the only one of its kind in the middle of a fresh water field and has its roots in the Environmental Studies Department at UW, where students have been investigating and doing research papers on water conservation as part of their degree program. Last Summer some students in ES received a Young Canada Works grant to do research in the field of water conservation and this year have obtained an Experience ‘79 grant for nine people and $5,000 from the regional municipality of Waterloo to continue this research. At present, the region relies on unchlorinated ground water from wells as the prime source of water. However, to meet future development of needs, additional supplies will be necessary. Several proposc

als have been outlined to increase the availability of a water, for example, pipeline from Lake Erie, a -dam at West Montrose or an artificial recharge scheme where water is taken from the Grand River, chemically treated and placed in wells. Implementation of these schemes is costly and has environmental drawbacks - a dam at West Montrose will flood and destroy good farm-land and construction of pipeline will alter the environment. The Water Conservation Centre at UW wants to delay implementation of these schemes to allow for more consideration of the alternatives and publicity about water conservation, says Karen Bailey, Media Correspondent at the Centre. The Centre wants t0 change publit consciousness regarding water conservation to avoid situations like that which occurred last summer when water supply in the rigion reached a critical level and a ban was imposed on lawn watering. Also, water conthe servation increases amount of water available increased for meeting demand and can minimize the need to develop new expensive sources of water.

used in the home. Since the toilet is the largest culprit of water waste, using on the average six gallons per flush and accounting for 43 percent of total residential water use, the Bottle Program is investigating the effectiveness of two watersaving devices for the toilet, the “aqua-saver” and the water displacer. The aqua-saver Operates to prematurely close the valve flush while the water displacer is merely a plastic bottle which-is placed in the tank and displacesor saves its volume in water. These devices were installed in several departments and residences in KW during 1975 and 1978 and will be examined this year to determine their effectiveness. It is estimated that the aquasaver can cut a household water bill by as much as 25 percent. Showers and baths account for 29 percent of residential water use and the Centre has some simple suggestions: conserving, take a shower instead of a bath since less water will be used this way; don’t leave the tap running while YOU shave or brush your teeth as much as five gallons a minute can go down the drain if a tap is left running. “Shower with a friend” is another alternative. These measures are simple to implement and the savings can be enormous over thousands of households. The Water Conservation Centre believes that conservation can be promoted by changing the water rate structure so that households who use less water receive a reduction on their water bills. A special group is

looking into alternative rate structures for the region. At present in Kitchener and Cambridge, COnSUmerS who use large amounts of water pay less per unit of water than those who use small amounts. In Waterloo , a uniform rate structure is employed. The Centre feels that neither of these schemes provide incentive to conserve water and that small users end up subsidizing large water users. They suggest that an “increasing block’ rate” where large water users pay more per unit than small users or an “excess use scharge” where consumers who use exorbitant ‘amounts of water receive a heavy charge, would provide better incentives for water conserva tion A research and thesis essay by Judi

4 the percentage of students who fail a given term in a given year (see accompanying chart). As is clear from the table, the term with the peak failure rate is gradually moving upwards (from the lb to the 2a term) while the average failure rate is dropping. In 1976 this figure was 9.$1%, while in 1977 it was down to 8.75% and by 1978 had fallen ever further to 8.0%. Recent estimates place the current rate even lower than this. This falling-off in the failure rate is seen as a positive sign by EngSoc-A President Paul Johnson. “The failure rate has dropped very rapidly over the last few years. We’re raising the standards of admission, ahd so we’ll end up with a higher caliber of student. This will substa’ntially reduce the failure rate in the Faculty of Engineering. “Essentially we’re raising the grade 13 average requirement, which is the only real requirement we can place on admissions. Ideally we could use some other criterion, but secondary school average is all we have to go on.” In Engineering, no attempt is made to adjust or bell-curve the resu,lts prior to their submission to the Registrar. Thus it is possible for a particular class to have a high failure rate in a given course. High failure rates in one or more key courses could produce a high failure rate for the term. The Faculty of Mathematics does not maintain records of failure rates as such, but does have information concerning the status of students within the program.

Bernard and Lane make it real, through frank and realistic dialogue. During the Flosing scene Daniel is every bit a man of the world.

-place somewhere in the Greek islands during the Nazi occupation of 1944. The local Nazi . stalag employs the POW’S on an archeological site, containifig artifacts dating back to the Byzantine* Empire. But the prisoners know that the real treasures are up in the monastery on Mt. Athena. As for the quaint peasant village, the Greek resistance, located in a brothel, is headed up by patriot Telly Savalas, who doesn’t care one whit about precious pottery. I sat through a half hour of innumerable movie plugs for this? Predictably, the villagers and prisoners engineer an improbabie * uprising against the’ Nazi domination. Included in ,this ‘escape’ is a ridiculous motorcycle chase through the narrow streets of the village, involving an anachronistic comic, played by the over-rate4 Elliot Gould. Of course, the Greeks are successful and the greedy little eyes of the liberated POW’S are turned upon the fabulous treasures of Athe‘na, since “someone’s gonna take them, anyway.” The film was silly enough, to begin with, but the ‘coup de grace’ was no doubt the revelation of the secret German weapon. Out pops a big black missile followed by, this is the truth, marching, chrome-faced Nazis. What were they? Robots? Disfigured soldiers? Embarrassed producers? As for the cast, the names are larger than the talent. Roger Moore is fine as James Bond, but he brought practically the same character to this film. Stefanie Powers is not ready for anything beyond Walt Disney, and Sonny Bono (yes, Sonny Bono) is not ready for anything. An exception to the rule is David Niven, but his part was too small to affect the movie. One . of the film’s few assets was the on location shooting of most of the scenes. Two or three soaring aerial views highlighted the picturesque Greek islands. Escape to Athena is a movie that follows the box office: a slew of known names, a little action, a lot of death (all Nazis, of course) and a snazzy title. Well, I got caught. Michael Longfield

Margaret

Trudeau

Beyond

Reason

It’s always a bad sign when the author’s name on a book is much larger than, the title, With Margaret Trudeau’s Beyond Reason, the discrepancy is enormous. And, unfortunately, so is the ego. Her whole life is there before us, from early childhood on: her four sisters and their rivalry for their father’s love (embarrasFreudian), her singly schooling, her crush on Yves Lewis, her time “on the hippy trail” abroad, her return to Canada and to the civil service, her courtship, turmoil, violamarriage, tions of protocol, and her separation, the men she has known since then (coyly referred to as “my cowboy” or “a wealthy businessman who groomed his crinkly hair with’ a blowdryer”), and her ‘fcareer” in film. And the surprising thing is that it’s not at all interesting. Oh, it’s fast moving and all that sprightly and to one (thanks perhaps Caroline Moorehead, whom

writer”), pointless. A nice girl in a nice upper-class Vancouver family grows up, does well in school, rebels against the family by becoming a “hippy” and taking drugs (though she occasionally checks into a really posh hotel for a night, even then), returns to sulk at her grandmother’s place, takes a job in the civil service, and is bored with it. Who cares, except that she happened to marry the Prime Minister? Such is the skill of her portrayal that she makes that seem boring too. She makes visiting heads of state around the world sound boring. She makes Pierre sound boring. She makes Studio 54 sound boring. She makes the Rolling Stones, acting and escaping from her boring public life boring too. Nothing is left untouched. There is much, much talk throughout the book about Pierre and his device “La raison avant la passion” “Reason before passion.” Of

course, Margaret is dead set very brief snatches, never against reason. But you get enough to make you really_ the feeling that, while she see them. Even Pierre seems nebulous, a shadow rather certainly doesn’t have much reason, there is very little than a presence. There are all sorts of real passion to her either. little anecdotes, yes, events, Melodrama, childlike high spirits and episodes, and tales, but too childish rebellion, yes, but spotty, too unified. It just seems like a string of stories not real intensity and passion. It all seems diluted, as to make Margaret lookgood, quoting compliments from though she is too busy lookfamous people ?(Leonard ing at the event in a mirror, too busy being a public Cohen once called her image, to really feel. “every man’s perfect date”) and her reactions to them. Everyone is “charming,” it may well be her favourite word. Heads of state are always “intelligent” surely a reader could deduce this for herself, and get something a little more revealing from Margaret’s personal experience. One good thing about the book is what it does not say. She doesn’t come down too It’s all so much fluff, so hard on Pierre, for example You - we never find out what one-dimensional. kind of lover he is or what glimpse all these famous people - Nixon, Chou en his secret foibles are. There is, throughout the Lai (his words to her about pregnancy are one of the book, this crazy obsession in the about age.

Margaret is still saying she is 22. You never get mention of a higher age until the epilogue, which, by the way, is the most honest part of the book, saying, “I don’t, I realize, come out of this story very well.” Right again, Margaret. It’s a ‘tremendously selfindulgent book. You get the feeling that every critical word she directs against herself was forced upon her by her “writer”. A good example of her flattering self-view comes out in her photo captions: “Liberated Margarets of the world unite! Mrs. Whitlam of Australia and I enjoyed airing views on our women’s rights in Jamaica.” Or how about this one: “Mickey Mouse, on my Italian dress . . . has the cheek to let his silk slip and reveal too much thigh.” (Confusing, isn’t it?) Margaret is always referring to herself as “a flowerchild” or “a former flowerchild” or “a photography student on her way to class”. All the disguises get ,a bit confusing after a while, making you suspect that

Margaret just loves playing the game of hiding behind images of herself, inside, where it’s safe. If you’re looking for hot scandal, Beyond Reason won’t give it to you besides, she’s now only the wife of the estranged Opposition Leader, and you should be waiting for Maureen McTeer’s story. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for an honest, naked self-portrait of a woman who suffers, lives, and grows, read Anais Nin, or Colette, or Isadora Duncan, or even Anne Frank. Margaret is totally beyond truth - beyond reason and beyond passion, too, into some gray would where nothing is really worth the effort. A public librarian said about this book, when asked to put me on the request list for it, “Forget it for the rest of the summer, come back in September. Everyone will have forgotten about Margaret and her book by then.” The book deserves no better. Lori Farnham

The seventh annual Bluegrass Canada festival was held on the first weekend in June in Courtcliffe Park‘ in Carlisle. Bands from across Canada and the United States picked’ and fiddled for a hand-clapping, footOver stomping crowd. 16,000 people had arrived by Saturday evening for the climax of the festival. The crowds were in high spirits, dancing and singingto a wide range of bluegrass music. Some bands stuck to the old favourites like Orange Blossom Special and Will the -Circle Be Unbroken, while other bands took the privilege of converting rock and roll
