There was very little debate and only one dissenting vote on.the Women’s Studies prp’ posal, which has beenevolving since January ,of 198 1 in conjunction with ’ Wikfrid Laurier University., It has also been passed by - the WLU Senate and will be offered by both universjties as a joint endeavor. ’ ’ The introduction to the ‘Women’s Studies Option proposal states: “In the last fifteen years women have been the focus of major research projects, particularly in _the humanities _ and social.,, _ sciences. “Questionson topics suchas social expectations women; medical,. philosophical and religious assumptionsof female ,capacities, women’s self-perception, women’s biological rolesand vocational placehave been raised and the haye, been,:, . inany r answefsintensely debated. , .

Is space war inevitable? A recently concluded Gallup poll states 1that more than 4Oa/oof Canadians favour an “all-out nuclear war” over a continued arms race. I find myself in agreement. There is much to be said for a “let’s get it over with”attitude. Not much - but something. Nobody likes living in suspense. . What is keeping a lot of people (hopefully, some of those people are in the Kremlin) in suspense is, what is the cargo Columbia has carried into orbit? Speculation ranges from an infra-red scanner suitable for space-to-earth and space-to-space (spacecraft spotting) surveillance to a prototype particle beam projector. There is no need to speculate what Russia / is doing about the-se possibilities; their tests . within the last month of(among other things) a satellite-killer missile suggests that whatever Reagan can put into the sky, Breshnev is prepared to try knocking down. What to do about the matter? At the very least, be pleased that the initial fighting of the Last Battle will take place above the stratosphere. For one thing, this may provide an earlier warning - some people may be able to leave their cities (a, long string of ‘ifs’ follow here: where you live, what you -drive, if you’re prepared, if you’re lucky) before the bombs : / fall. An atomic explosion in space would be hard to miss. Think of a nova. For another, at this stage of a battle, the West might win - at the moment at least, superior electronics and maybe superior esprit de corps, at least at the officer level where this intial war will be fought may be enough. By %vin” I mean, our particle-beams will take out their first-strike ICBMs.‘ I’d far sooner bet on a speed-of-light weapon than on anti-missiles - or, “deterrance”.

For a third, try a peace march. This is relatively good exercise, gets one out in the sunshine, and provides jobs for police and newspaper reporters. Politics-wise, it may convince the fence-sitters (one way or another), and lets politicians know just how many people are againstnuclear escalation. (Consider the really impressive number of people who turned out for the anti-war demonstration in front of the UN. -people from all across the continent. Then consider the population of New York City. Put the numbers side by side. Please reach your own conclusion.) It appears, in fact, that there is’very little the common person can do about war in space, or on the ground. For every peace marcher who honestly believes the Russians don’t- want war; and the whole matter can be settled by mutual trust and treatieqthere are many voters who believe just the opposite. More than that, the dissenting element is spread throughout so many constituencies that, no matter what their strength in numbers is -at a demonstration, those numbers will always be drowned out by the conservative voters,. Are there no solutions? Probably not, because the superpowers are veryfaralongthe road to theend. It seems unlikely that this will changes . . . or can be changed. But. . . Investment by business interests in space might do-the trick. One reason Columbia carries military cargoes has to do with lack of public funding. Stine’s The Third Industrial Revolution details many advantages to industry in-space;-industry and individuals should turn their attention away from deadend investments and outward - where endless power and-endless physical resources are available. And at worse, if the Big Boys decide to blow up the planet - then perhaps they won’t get everyone. John W. Bast Imprint

Women’s

Studies

The University of Waterloo Senate is to be commended for accepting the Women’s Studies Option last week. Congratulations to Hanna Fournier, Co-ordinator of Women’s Studies, and to the Advisory Commitee which she chaired and which did the bulk of the groundwork toward making the program a reality. The University Senate was also instrumental in setting a fertile foundation in which the program was able to develope. It was a report by their Long Range Planning Committee which stated awhile back that “The very idea of a Women’s Studies Programme is not without controversy among both men and women. The opponents of such a programme find it demeaning, even humiliating, that women should be singled out as objects of academic study and inquiry. “The advocates of Women’s Studies maintain that massive and rapid changes in the social, political, and economic roles of a group comprising half of the world’s population cannot be ignored ,and, indeed, must become the object of serious scholarly inquiry. The University has sided with the ad? vacates.” They further recommended the establishment of a committee to work out the details, which, of course, was put into effect and culminated in last week’s approval. The information on the option itself is as follows: (1) the program may be taken in combination with any general or honours program; (2) course requirements call for ten term c.ourses which include two basic Women’s Studies courses, three

moves forward

courses from a core list (these include Women in Literature, The Woman Writer: Theory and Practice, History of the Sexes, Philosophy of Women, Sociology of Women, and Scientific perspectives on Gender and Sexuality, and at least five courses from an approved list which includes a wide range of topics from sex roles to history and literature to philosophy and politics (there are about thirty such offerings): and (3) students must have a minimum average of 65%in all Women’s Studies courses to meet the graduation requirements. The program seems to have a number of pluses going for it from the outset. The University of Waterloo library is said to* have a unique and very large collection of Women’s Studies mriterial. Additionally, the Rare Book room has a special collection of archival material. This should allow interested students to explore new areas in Canadian Women’s research. Wilfrid Laurier is also considered to have a solid collection. There is also the ongoing supplementation with other books, journals, microfilm collections, and manuscript material. Certainly, the teaming-up by, Waterloo and Laurier for this program makes a lot of sense. While there may be a, few headaches administratively due to the greater inputs and need for procedures and approvals, it seems that the benefits to those taking advantage of the program are far greater than the inconveniences. The availability of related resources from both universities, along with faculty members in departments which appear to complement each other well is significant for creating a

strong program. That type of joint situation is not a possibility for most universities in the country. Administratively, the universities will set up an Inter-university Womens Studies Co-ordinating Committee to oversee the general functioning of the program. There will be two representatives from each university, including UW’s Coordinator of Women’s Studies and another faculty member appointed by the Academic Vice-President. This inter-university committee will make decisions regarding the contents of the two basic level courses. It will also make proposals for theadditionorwithdrawal of courses. Their main function will be to,ensure continuity within the program. The joint effort between UW and WLU could eventually make Waterloo the top centre for Women’s Studies in the province and the country. It sounds nice but it won’t happen that fast. The University of Waterloo, while at the fore-front of the computer field, has been a little slow off the mark regarding Women’s Studies. Most American universities have had programs in operation for some time, and here in Canada, 21 of 37 English-speaking universities already have instituted programs, while five others are in the planning stages. Hopefully, the progress and building oft he program will proceed a little more swiftly from here on in. In any case, it seems as though the program is on solid footing, and headed in a desireable direction. Len. Gamache

The wisest man in the world, Socrates Bast, posed this question to his friends, gathered about him in easy reverence. “Prithee, what is ‘Better than a rock’?” Linda Praxiteles was the first to answer, after much thought. “Aloom, such as that used ‘by the Fates ever since the world population exceeded one million” “Ah,” replied Socrates, “but is it not true that a large rock falling from a great height may destroy a loom?” “This is so,” she admitted Len “Euripides” Sophocles was next. “A copper pipe,” he replied, “so that the people ofAthens do not get lead poisoning from the backsplash of their cisterns.” “ But,” replied the hefty philosopher, “can copper pipenotalsobeusedbytheenemiesofAthens,andthusprove to be a mixedblessing?‘” “True, true,” said the young man, and, troubled he wandered off, murmuring, “In plumb0 est veritas.” “ Perhaps it is payment for parchment space that is ‘Better than a rock’,” Scott “Murray” Petronius said “Is not one who sells an arbitary quantity no better than a beggar in the street who would pelt another with pebbles?‘! “That makes no sense,” several people chorused. “That isbecauseyouarein the position of a man living in a cave who has not yet ordered carpeting or even had his suit fitted correctly. Rocks are often used as decorative paperweights,” he told Petronius. ‘Happiness ‘and a family,” answered Sylvia “Electra” Kanthippe, dressed in a becoming basic black. “There,” Socrates announced, “is someone who has a grasp of the essentials. She is wrong, but it shows a grasp.” Finally, Hermes of the Mounted, a red-coated goatherd, spoke up. ‘Chicken wings at the Kent.” “Youbuy the first pitcher,” spake ;he philosopher, \ and they left.

Owe-no man any thing, but I love one another . . . “- Romans 13:8 Brethren, truth is a rare and precious gem which is too easily counterfeited. To distinguish the truediamond from&merely perfect piece of glass, you require a jeweler’s vision, for appearanc.es do deceive. Thesolid citizenis sometimes revealed to bera child molester. The cond-emned man is sometimes-an -actual saint. You must be careful to see the real behind the -apparent. -These times are perilous with ca,moflage$evils. Subtlesirens, seemingly. most reasonable and pleasant, call you to action, political action in particular. These alarms summon you to opposing trenches in a muddy and foggy no-man’s-land of I _ ideologies. ’ Thus; in, real-life, Christian Falangists shoot, kill, wound .Palestinians this very day <n Beirut, Lebanon. At this very moment, brethren, Christian guerillas carrying rosaries and grenades, are crawling through theforests and jungles of Latin America, fighting Christian military governments; each side slaughtering the-other in the name of Christ and democracy. Yesterday, this morning, tonight, brethren, Christian South.‘ Africans. machine-gun, jail, rape their ,fellow . Azanian ,,Christians. Renaissance Canada and the so-called .Moral Majority seek to reinstall “traditional”values of family, thrift, work, and church service in North America. In short, ‘your faith is.being wielded as a political weapon or force, and youare-bein~~enlisted as shock-tro0psin.a dirty, little ideological wa~&&&ich the end result is vanity... ,., In A Christian Manifesto (Westchester: Crossway Books;‘ 1981), Francis A. Schaeffer argues that ‘you must take the “necessary legal and political stands” to refiulse’ the “humanistiti’ worldview which heseesascorruiting”Northern European” values (freedom of speech,-freedom of the press;freedom of worship, etc.). He applauds the political activism of the horal: Majority; and sees the-conservative swing in the 1980 American elections as an opportunity of which you “must take advantage . . . in every%vay (you) can. . . as Christian citizens of the democracy ’ (the United States) in which (you) still.have freedom” to roll- back the liberal OF humanist world-view, that Schaeffer sees as being the root of all modern evils (abortion in particular). On the theological left, liberation theologians argue that,,the impoverishment of the working-class or the peasantry - as‘is evident/in such nations as El Salvador and Chile - and their domination by a wealthy, oppressive elite is the cause of evil; thus, economic reform, class change, or revolution are the preferred messiahs. This mixture of Marxism and’ Christianity is a- heady ‘intoxicant, for it weds ideals and practical actions for the attainment of praise-worthy goals ,(such as the elimination of poverty). Its main fault is that revolutionary regimes are often as blood-thirsty as those they replace. Not one of the political philosopms that proclaims itself the saviour -or mankind, is. Or, in the words of the spiritual, “not -everybody that’s talkin’ ‘bout heaven is goin’ there”. Politics, despite its appeals’for your support;is a phoney messiah, -a false religion. To date,. Communism, far from , producing the working man’s Eden, has given us the GUag Archipelago, the Berlin Wall, and genocide in Cambod.ia. Fascism, despite its noble words, classical pretensions and churchly facade is a whitened sepulchre, acarpeted torture chamber.‘Conservatism and Liberalism though self-righteous, have given us Brixton, Trenchtown, arms races, and other nasty surprises. Brethren, neither ballots nor bullets will create the Kingdom of God on Earth, only the love of neither ballots nor bullets will create the Kingdom of God on Earth, only the love of Christ. Brethren; be ever vigilant! Seek always the truth.! Avoid the vulgarity of those who would claim that Christianity must follow an ideology: Remember that “coniervative”, evangelical Christianity is Old Testament, eye-for-eye-and-tooth-for-tooth, hell-fire religion and that “liberal” Christianity emphasizes social reform at the expense of spiritual salvation. But remember most of all that your faith, though political, is, not politics. The church, your church, Hischurch, must be.kept separate from the State, from the world. So what is the wordly function of the Christian? “. . . Tovis,it the fatherless and wido%s in their affliction, andto keep himself 5 uns.potted from the world.” - James 1:27.

- E.T. :is ma@cd by Virginia Butler .If you haven’t seen a movie recently that you thought was worth the admission price, then make it a point to see E.T. It’ll restore your faith in a lot of things. \ Director Steven Spielberg is of course, no stranger to. - success. His previous credits, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark and his other current release, Poltergeist have made him a well respected and well enjoyed member of the film industry. E.T. is furthering that reputation for him. Heralded by some as the best movie ever, E.T. will move you enough to agree. ET takes one of the classic *, science fiction themes,

namely a space being’s arrival on earth, but it adds new dimensions to this. Not only does Spielberg entertain the possibility that an extra-terrestrial might be amicable, he makes him downright lovable. When Elliot Taylor (well played by Henry Thomas) first meets E.T. he runs in the opposite direction, screaming.. Then again so does E.T. The boy’s curiosity leads him after the creature though, and the M&M’s left by the boy lead the creature back to him. From there, the winning friendship is struck. All of the children, Elliot, Mike and Ge’rtie are very well performed. Elliot, by virtue of his relationship with E.T., tends to steal our hearts but certainly Gertie (Drew Barrvmore) steals the show with

comic relief, The marvelous humour of the children and their very lifelike sense of mischief adds much to the film. humour is key to the picture the whole way through, although it is best captured by the scene where E.T. discovers beer and shortly thereafter discovers drunk and hangover. One of the ryoungsters draws laughs when heasks why E.T. can’t simply “beam up”. Elliot replies, “Because this is ‘reality”. Most of all, E.T. is a movie of feeling. It involves the audience fully and plays on a whole host of emotions. Delight \when E.T. masters his first syllables. horror when the ominous NASA,men begin to

close in, warmth’when Elliot yelps “Ouch” over a cut finger and E.T. heals the ouch with a mysterious lighting’ fingertip. Nobody can help but get ?hoked up when the inevitable begins to take its course, as Elliot and E.T. struggle to find a way to return E.T. to his home. Spielberg and his cast have done something amazing with Melissa Mathison’s excellent script: they have put magic on the screen. The well combined amounts of myth and mirth make E.T. very much worth seeing. Be forewarned though, take a Kleenex or two or a dozen. It’s not just a movie, it’s an experience that everyone should ‘make an ,effort to attend. It’s well worth. the while.

If the novelization of E.T. were half as good as the movie, there would really be, no problem. Unfortunately,’ William Kotzwinkle’s attempt to work a novel out of Melissa Mathison’s screenplay is downright horrible. E.T. the book fails in every way to capture the moods that the movie stirs. Where the movie directs its focus on the relationship between Elliot and the alien, Kotzwinkle makes haphazard attempts to concentrate on the psychology of the Taylor children’s mother, the thoughts of the creature, and the unlovable nature of Elliot himself. Kotzwinkle misses every possible point. :The characters do not develop properly at all. Mary Taylor, the children’s mother, is written as a neurotic separated woman, concerned only with men and her fantasies thereof; unable to put together a decent meal (for some unexplained reason), and almost oblivious to her children while she endures the rigours of suburbia. Since she takes all of Kotzwinkle’s focus, the character interplay becomes wholly imbalanced. E.T.‘s character and personality are butchered herein. Kotzwinkle harps on the fact that this being is ten million years old. This detail is, in fact quite insignificant. The bond between Elliot, that develops between two I powerless beings, a child and an alien, neither of whom fits properly into the adult world, is oblivious ta age, to sex or to any other such detail. Kotzwinkle also works E.T.‘,s thoughts to present him as a highly condescending creature, alwaysaware of his own superiority in this world. Perhaps the most unforgivable error however, is Kotzwinkle’s seggestion that E.T. issexuallyattracted toMary Taylor.-In the adaptation of a movie where he addresses her as Mom and where innocence is a dominant theme, such an innuendo is tacky and indicates Kotzwinkle’s poor sense of ‘: audience and theme. Kotzwinkle does little, if anything properly. He waters down the characters, omits the choicest dialogue, loses track of the comedy of the tale and, in doing so, all but ruins the story. Y Everything the movie is, the book isn’t. The powerful images left by the lively characters in the films and by fhe delightful tale are not enhanced at all by the book. They are, more than anything else, spoiled. It’s a common case of the original being the best of the lot. ET. was meant to be a movie. by Virginia Butler

Minerals

ant _’

by Diane Richards Spanning prehistory to the modern era, the travelling exhibit entitled Minerals, Metals and Man will be on display in the Biology-Earth Sciences Museum until the end of July. This exhibit is on loan from the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Ottawa, and traces man’s use of minerals and metals from raw ore to the finished product, Various artifacts highlight man’s progress through history.

,

Keynote display items include a Columbian gold necklace and nose ornament (dated circa A.D. 1000-1600); Sir John A. Macjonald’s Stirling silver snuff box; and a bronze church bell (dated 1666) from the St. Lawrence Valley. Contrasting items such as a steel armour piercing projectile (capable of puncturing tanks) and a car spring, illustrate how man can modify the properties of steel - from extreme hardness to resilience - by adding elements such as tungsten or vanadium. Metals and minerals in their raw state are also exhibited. Flint hand axes and lances provide examples of early uses of minerals. Refining techniques illustrate how the discovery of the three key properties of metal malleability, conductivity and ductility - represented a great step forward for civilization. Peter Russell, museumcurator, chose the exhibit to commemorate Waterloo’s silver anniversary, and indicated that often these special interest displays must be booked as far as three years in advance. Minerals, Metals and Man has, in fact, been exhibited across Canada and in Los Angeles. It complements the museum’s regular exhibits of two full dinosaur casts, minerals, fossils, birds, butterflies and quartz displays. “Special interest displays,” “are designed to says Russell, promote local awareness of the museum and of the natural sciences in general.” He points out that museum visits are worked into the curricula of local school boards. Museum staff also coordinates the Junior Nat uralist Program for children aged seven to twelve. Upcoming attractions at the museum include the Icthyosaur (the prehistoric equivalent of the porpoise) exhibit from the Royal Ontario Museum. This exhibit will replace Minerals, Metals and Man the first week in August and an amphibian display is planned to coincide with the University’s open house in October. The museum’s resources are open to everyone, and group tours can be arranged on request. The museum is open from 9:OO to ~:oo, Monday to Friday. Admission is free. For further information please call Peter Russell at extension 2469.
