According to Mr. MacGillivray, he was also told by the Security members that the O.C. motion to have him come to campus and speak "wasn't worth the paper it was written on". When contacted, Campus Security officials refused to comment on this allegation. Copies of the Operations Council motion were sent to th Chairperson of the Ethics Committee, the Faculty AdvisoJ Committee on Discipline, and to Dr. Brzustowski. When asked to comment, Dr. ~rzustowskisaid that action by Operations Council in bringing Mr. MacGillivr$: campus was not as valid as his own. for his authority extends beyond that of the O.C. He went on to question the status of th 16 1.S. students who passed the motion, and suggested that M Sheridan be approached for comment. As of this going t press, however, the co-ordinator was unavailable. Regarding Dr. Brzustowski's concerns over the status of the I.S. members who passed the motion, a number of I.S. students pointed out that attendance records exist for the meeting in .question, as they do for all O.C. meetings. They also said that it is Mr. Sheridan's responsibility to ensure that only registered 1.S. students are allowed to vote.

by Carol Fletcher ” We musi be certain that equality for women is a central issue over the next five years so that women will be winners... None of this will be accomplished without firm political will. ” Honourable Walter McLean, Minister Responsible for the Status of Women, March 5, 198.5. The Honourable Walter McLean, Waterloo MP, Secretary of State, and a Presbvterian minister. was in town last Monday, March 11; to meet political responsibilities. The Minister began his day by officially opening the new Computing Facility for Women’s Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University (W LU). The new data bank is assessible to UW students, and more information is available at the Dana Porter Arts Library. Mr. McLean said “the opening of the data bank is not something that is esoteric, it is an important bench mark in women’s equality”. From WLU, Mr. McLean was wisked off to the Citizenship Court in Waterloo, where he received and congratulated new Canadians from nineteen different countries. In keeping with his fast pace, Mr. McLean went directly to the Campus Centre in order to meet with student leaders from both WLU and UW. The discussion centred around the federal government’s opinions concerning the Bovey Commission and summer jobs for youth. Mr. McLean and his entourage then proceeded to the Grad House to speak with UW Progressive Conservative Campus Association members and the Political Science Society on his role as Secretary of State. -
Although the minister’s agenda was very full, he still took the time out to be interviewed by Imprint. The questions asked dealt mainly McLean’s Status of Women with Mr. Ministry. When asked whether he was a feminist, Mr. McLean replied: “The other day I was given an award as an honourary woman; I took that as a compliment... there is a question of terminology as to what a feminist means. There is a division of opinion between ‘socalled’ radical feminists, people who are seeking equality and justice for women and then there are those who are resisting this for a variety of cultural or theological reasons.” When asked whether, being a man, he has had any difficulties in accomplishing duties on behalf of women, Mr. McLean answered: “When I was appointed as Opposition Critic in 1980 by Mr. Clark, at that point the women’s movement was really being considered by some people as a phenomena that would somehow go it’s own way .after a while. I find now, in fact, we have more women in the cabinet than ever before. If a woman is advocating, it seems that she is just I’m advocating it advocating for herself. because I believe in it; because the government believes in it. So, I’ve been very wellreceived.” In the Globe and Mail, March 11 edition, an article regarding Mr. McLean stated that he (Mr. McLean) readily admits that such affirmative action is state-ordered discrimination in favour of women. but argues that a temporary measure is needed to reverse an old wrong.” When asked to comment on affirmative action, Mr. McLean said: “1 wasn’t precluding that we would never have quotas,
but 1 hope we never have to. There will be legislation in June with the federally-funded companies. It will be a reporting mechanism in which the companies will have to get their equal opportunity programs in order. If businesses want to renew their contract next year (the government is one of the largest buyers of goods and services in Canada), then the businesses will show us that they are equal _ opportunity employers.”

“overwhelming mandate” from students to build the facility, and that it “stands as a monument to students’ ability to get things done”. After it was pointed out the the basement and other amenities which students had voted for as part of the building had been cut from the plans, Mr. Allison said the the changes had not affected the function of the building to any major degree, and hence were not an issue. Concerning another issue of Mr. Allison’s administration --- the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) referendum --- Mr. Allison said that the move to withdraw from the organization was obviously a mistake in judgement, but that it had the beneficial effect of increasing OFS’s profile on campus. He also said that it was his “persuasive personality and ability to convince people of things” that enabled him to gain the support of Students Council and the Executive regarding the referendum. Mr. Allison still maintained that Waterloo should not be a member of OFS, citing its alleged excessive involvement in non-student issues. He also stated that he thought any action taken by OFS concerning the Bovey Commission’s report “would probably be useless”. Taking his administration as a whole, Mr. Allison said that as a result of his actions the profile of the Federation, while not as positive as it could be, was definitely higher than previously. “If you do nothing” he commented, “nobody will criticize you.” ,He went on to say that “I would like to think that the majority of my immoderate uses of power ‘were positive and justified, but I know that all of them were not. I think it isa natural human reaction to become intoxicated with the use of

The Enginews issue also entered the conversation. Mr. McLean was very supportive of women’s groups in this regard. He said that: “Under the Equality Provision Act in the Charter, this (Enginews) will ,become a violation. All Canadian’s rights are preserved under the Charter and when people refuse to honour that voluntarily, 1 regret to say that in the future it will be a court decision.”

me0almost two years of uninterrupted by Mathew Ingram Imprint Staff After two years of almost uninterrupted controversy, the Federation administration of Tom Allison is no more. Propelled by what some have called a mostly “anti-Allison” vote, he has been superseded by the team of Messrs. Flanagan and McKay --- running primarily on a platform of increased student involvement in the decision-making process. In the light of charges from Mr. Flanagan and others that Mr. Allison’s government was excessively autocratic, Imprint asked the expresident to look back on his two terms as head of the Federation. Mr. Allison began by stating that he had ’ “used the power of the Presidency to its fullest extent and then some”, but said he felt that students had been “well-served” by this method of administration. If the president had not had the amount of power he did, Mr. Allison went on to say, Fed-Hall would not have been built as quickly as it was; it was necessary, he said, to “push it through all the channels before the University administration had time to think twice about it.” Regarding the increase in Fed Hall’s budget, which took place with the knowledge and consent of only Mr. Allison, Jeff Wilson, vice-president, operations and finance, and Mitch Retterath, vice-president, university affairs, Mr. Allison said that “the budget was increased from $1.75 to 2-million without consulting Students Council or the Executive because I felt it was necessary at that time”. When asked to respond to allegations that Fed Hall was built as a tribute to the Allsion administration, the former president replied that “anyone who thinks I built Fed Hall as a monument to myself is a fool”. He stated that he was brought to power with an

power”. When asked to comment on the incoming president, Mr. Sonny Flanagan, Mr. Allison stated that while he would have preferred to see Jeff Wilson win the position, he felt it was important that “Sonny experience a good, clean transition into the Presidency” and that he would everything he could “to make Sonny’s presidency successful”. Asked to characterize the new administration in light of his comment (made after Mr. Flanagan’s October 1984 resignation as Creative Arts Board Chairperson) that Mr. Flanagan was not “a team player”, Mr. Allison said that he thought Mr. Flanagan “would do better now that he’s team captain”. He also said that Mr. filanagan resigned from his position “for pragmatic reasons rather than dogmatic ones”, to dissociate himself from Mr. Allison’s administration before seeking the presidency. Mr. Allison also stated that he did not think a large amount of dissidence would be tolerated in Mr. Flanagan’s administration; “sooner or later” he said, “Sonny will be quoted as saying ‘My way or the doorway’.” On the subject of Mr. Flanagan’s Executive, Mr. Allison commented: “Sonny is a PC (Progressive Conservative) and he has certain loyalties to the party. I expect to see young Tories and right-wing blue suits on his Executive”. Speaking about his own future, Mr. Allison said that while he probably would be working for the Liberal Party in some capacity, he had no definite plans. “I do not want to become prime minister” he said --- “If Tom Allison became prime minister, it would be the ’ biggest disaster this country has ever seen”.

Stiddenly and without prelude, the very existence of open and reasonable discussion which, for almost 15 years, had characterised the processes and structures of Integrated Studies as well as its dealings with the various levels of the University’s administration, was denied. Why the secrecy! The total lack of open and reasonable discussion? I think the answer is painfully clear. Integrated Studies was not on trial for any lack of proper procedure or improper administrative practice: the public record shows quite clearly that Integrated Studies has functioned completely within the bounds set for it by Senate, the same structures that were hailed by Senate Reviews and Dr. Brzustowski as being ideal models for education. Integrated Studies’ chief crime was that it functioned too well. Over the past three years or so, students began to reap the benefits of the historical development of Integrated Studies and they made of Integrated Studies what it was asked to be in the first place: an independent studies programme that administered its own affairs with competence and a mastery of proper structure and procedure -- in essence, a self-maintaining programme that has no need of external administration. This fact became patently obvious at the time when preparations for the hiring of the coordinator were being made. It was the students that proposed a very effective hiring procedure, drew up the job description, insisted that University policies with regard to giving preference to internal applicants be followed and conducted wellorganized interviews and discussions. All of t-his was approved by both the offices of the Vice-President Academic and the Director of Personnel. It was also watched from without the programme, and not without incredulity: despite the fact that Integrated Studies students are all adults ranging in age from 20 to 70, students are not supposed to conduct affairs with competence; they are not supposed to have power and responsibility and most certainly not administer their own education, especially if it turns the tables around and makes staff answerable to them. There were many more clear-cut examples of administrative sophistication on the part of the students, such as the fine-tuning of the resource persons’ hiring procedures, the institution of effective and responsible budgetary controls, and the entrenchment of structures to preserve Operations Council’s democracy. The great irony was that the only elements of 5r. Brzustowski’s October memo (coup) that were in any way substantial and worth of consideration had either already been dealt with by council or were in the process of being dealt with. This, then, is the reason for the unbreakable silence in Dr. Brzustowski’s office. It is precisely because the crime is competence that it has become unspeakable. The reasons for the vague, unsubstantiated statements and the clandestine operations are that the administration is in the process of toppling a perfectly functional programme (both administratively and educationally, boasting the highest proportion of graduates being accepted into post-graduate programmes) which carried the seal of approval of its own highest offices. This, with no speakable crime!
You can see why it would be difficult for any of those that have been involved in this massacre to make quotable statements or to subject their judgements and arguments to public scrutiny. There is, to my mind, one argument which is most inconvenient to make in public and that is a blatantly unjust argument that could not withstand the slightest of either public scrutiny or reason. I see no justification in the ongoing desecration of this programme. But beyond the question of justification lay the questions of right, authority, and soundness of principles. In spite of the monolithic appearance of the legal structures of the University, I still believe that the above not ions are open to questioning and reasonable discussion. Which is to say that while Senate and certain offices in this University have a legislated authority to ,implement decisions that effect other people’s lives and liveihoods, they are still in the control of human beings who can make bad judgements, as is apparently evident. A number of people have participated in the destruction of Integrated Studies. Some through ignorance, such as the senators who were clearly unaware of the policies that Senate had issued with regard to Integrated Studies and who apparently (according to the programme coordinator) have requested that the students provide them with a history of these policies. Others have chosen to participate in the destruction of the programme because they are basically opportunistic and see a chance for personal advancement. Yet others have made the most damaging cold and calculated moves of the assassin. The programme’s members are adults who entered into the programme specifically because it stresses selfdependence in education as well as administration: two inseparable aspects of this structure. Now they are being treated as children; thier right to self-administration which they have dearly earned has been confiscated along with their right to self-determination. They are tax-payers as were their parents before them and it is their funds which pay the salaries of Dr. Brzustowski, the programme coordinator, and the members of the Senate, as well as the expenses they incur during their education. .4hrrh “crtd el-‘A&

TO the editor: I had thought that the university was an institution where people came to explore new ways of thinking, with the intention of better learning how to think for themselves. While at UW I have been fortunate enough to encounter individuals who not only accepted the ‘challenge of new ideas, but who also actively sought opportunities to expand their ways of thinking; at the same time, unfortunately, I have met others who were not so inclined towards intellectual adventure. I wasn’t too surprised by those professors who were not too eager to modify their established ways of thinking, or even dea! with ways of thinking.
that differed from their own - after all, if they can sit on their ! tenures without bothering with such inconveniences, why shouldn’t they? I am surprised, however, by those impassive students who are not too interested in learning how to think for themselves; who, for example, are satisfied substituting Freud, Marx or someone’s interpretation of Aristotle, Shakespeare for the writings of Aristotle, Freud, Marx or Shakespeare; who would rather, simply, be told what they should know, what they should think, than think out problerns for themselves. I’m afraid that Paul Done’s review of “The Enemy Within” (Imprint March 1, ‘85) shows him to be a student who has bought someone else’s ideas in order to get an uncomplicated grasp of a very complex problem: consider the relationships between Mr. Done’s words and the photos that accompany his review. The long, narrow picture to the right of the text shows two distinct factions - police and (presumably) striking miners thereby polarizing the problem; it calls for a simple either/or assessment of the situation. It even attempts to influence our choice; consider the composition of the picture; we have been placed on the side ofithe scant number of miners opposing the horde of approaching police. I think that Mr. Done has bought, not only the photographer’s simplified view of the situation, but his bias as well; to him the problem seems to be a simple matter of choice between one of the two sides, and, as his terms “neofascist,” and “Gestapo” indicate, the choice (to him) is clear. I do not agree. First, the parallel he draws between Thatcher and Hitler “Margaret ‘Adolph’ Thatcher” - in order to derrogate (sic) the opposition simplifies the issue, and as is the case with all reductions, leaves something out - specifically, information about the government’s position and motives. One of the things Done chooses not to mention is the difference his analogy contains: while Hitler was truly a totalitarian dictator (he appointed himself both President and Chancellor of Germany), Thatcher was elected by a substantial majority of voters to attend to the interests of their country - voters who may not particularly want to bear the expenses incurred by maintaining unprofitable pits. To keep the opposition simple, to avoid complicating the problem, Mr. Done keeps the focus narrow when describing the miners; like the photographer, he induces us to side with the miners who are “poor, hungry, unarmed and, often outnumbered,” and who are “beaten up . .. during police baton charges.” These statements are not false, but what he does not consider, what would compound the problem, is that police have been beaten by miners and that miners have been beaten and bombed by other miners for deciding to exercise their right to work in order to feed and support their families. The simple choice between polarities such as right/wrong or oppressed/oppressor is not so simple; if we look closely, the problem cannot be so easily divided. Consider also the photo beneath the review - the slogan “Scargill Rules” painted on a brick wall. I find this picture a most appropriate companion to the article - doesn’t sloganeering function as a replacement to thinking by reducing involved issues to simple, one line chants (that can be easily recited by large groups of people - mobs? - at rallies or demonstrations)? I’m glad to see that Mr. Done has read Orwell, but I wonder if he is familiar with Animal Farm - particularly with the sheep who go around bleating the party line whenever the party’s actions are questioned (why sheep - think about it, Paul; it’s simple). His own attempt at sloganeering - “The real enemy of the Government is anyone who is not white, privileged, and conservative” - ironically demonstrates the refusal of such a complex problem to be restricted: isn’t Arthur Scargill himself white, privileged (quite well educated), and conservative (for wanting to preserve operations no longer adequate to the needs of the present society)? Also, the government isn’t the only organization opposed to the strike; even other labour unions have questioned the validity of the miners’ actions (recall the TUC debates last August). My purpose has not been to condemn the miners’ strike please don’t think me insensitive and unsympathetic towards their plight - but rather to question one who had not, in my opinion, carefully contemplated the complexities of the problem before printing his judgments. The best that can be achieved when such an involved matter is reduced to such basic polarities is a reversal of the hierarchy, which does not solve the problem --the polarities are still present -- and which may lead to a series o’t new problems (consider the connotations and implications of “Scargill Rules,” and remember the ending of Animal Farm). Even though it was only a record review, I feel the question, apart from the topic, present in Mr. Done’s article is a serious one; I hope that he will consider his responsibility to himself and to his readers, and take it upon himself to think more carefully before he writes. .Mark Dineen English
Is Imprint going the way of the Chevron? l
‘To the editor: How soon will it be that the Imprint gets booted off campus like its famous predecessor, the Chevron? I have watched as our student newspaper has become increasingly leftist in nature and recent articles by staff writer Paul Done haveieft me thoroughly sickened. The blatantly communist viewpoints of Done are nothing but pure garbage and do not deserve space in our student funded newspaper. Although Done is entitled to his opinions, I am also entitled to mine. In my opinion people
like Done axle using the Imprint as a vehicle for Morxist (sic) propaganda and I for one will refuse to support this paper next term (i-e with the all mighty Capitalis: $!) if the present trend continues.

IYHINK . . . if you can! by Chris Wodskou There is a lot of talk these days about how our society has been placed in the vice-like grip of governments’ manacles like that of Orwell’s 1984. And it is frightening how closely the “free” world of todav has come to fulfilli ng Orwell’s apocalyptic vision in many ways. The brand of conservativism enforced by the Thatcher and Reagan regimes, to give two examples, seems intent on stamping out creativity and radicalism completely. And most of us are aware of how ingeniously Reagan uses his style of Doublespeak as he paraphrases truth and history to create a completely homogeneous nation under the omnipresent stars and stripes where the individual is only valied as a small, insignificant cog in glorificationof-America machine. But what no one seems to realize is that we are becoming a race of mindless clones of our own accord without an; prodding from the nice people who apparently disquis; fascism as nationalistic pride. Regardless of how anyone tries to make anyone else think, no one can be stripped of his individuality and creativity unless he allows it to happen to himself. People shackle their own minds in their meaningless and insignificant attempt to be “respectable” and “normal”. Uiiversities used to be bastions of free expression and idealism and sti .ll are relative to most of thk rest of the civilized world, but now students are visi bly within the gras p of a suspicio us fear surro unding anything a little bit new and different. Nowhere is this more annarent than in the “Forum” section of Imprint in rec&t weeks. A rampant, reactionary fear of the unknown is constricting itself around people’s minds, for the student letter writers have shown a paranoid unwillingness to accept or even try to understand anything which doesn’t conform to the rules of their conditioning. I The outrages and often derisive reaction much of’ Imprint’s readership has expressed towards Zeke Gerrard’s column is typical of a redneck resnonse to anything threatening oii’s cosy, innocuous littlelworld of normalcy. Yes, it seems that it’s really essential in today’s society to-be a clone, a respectable member of the status quo. God forbid that anyone should have the nerve to look different from the Sears Men’s Shop-clad guys who run the world. your hair isn’t parted in the middle or lying flat on your head you must be a threat to society so you are fair game to any of the bourgeoisie. Even ideas that are challenging and thought-provoking do not provoke anything but quick, irrational, gut reactions. The very questioning of a government’s motives and actions is immediately seen as anarchic and subversive. Paul Done has been accused of having communist leanings because he criticized the Thatcher government and upheld the cause of the miners. Neither of the letter writers gave any real thought to Paul’s article. Instead they quickly and fearfully reacted to the unpleasant scenario of a government that doesn’t have everyone’s best interests at heart. The key word is THINK, if you’re capable of it. Sure it may seem that individuality is irretrievably lost because our all-knowing, benevolent governments have decided that any deviant thought and creativity is bad for us, but people, not governments, make themselves intellectually sterile.
<Don’t Quote Me By Darren Redfern Do you personally know anvbodv who is famous for what -he -said?

Those talkative people of centuries gone by sure had it made. All that people like Vergil, Confuscious or Lord Byron had to do was talk about tileir indigestion and someone would take down what they said. It all comes down to the fact that I can’t say anything wise and worldly without worrying if someone else said it first, whether or not I’m breaking any literary copyrights. If I put “Two heads are better than one” in an essay and forget to snuggle it in precious quotations, everyone from the prof to the dean of English makes such a fuss that you’d think John Heywood himself was going to leap out of his erave and rin out mv vocal chords. And don’t think that al those quotes were original, either.

may be homosexual, btit his colimn is generally wellwritten and sane, whereas the letter contained a considerable amount of raving. I prefer sane homosexuals to raving heterosexuals. If the whole question of sexual orientation is to be considered as an ethical (or moral) one, we must first establish that one’s sexual ‘EFokences are a matter of and are not pr’edetermined. If homosexuality is a result of a genetic abnormality or other uncontrollable cause, then the question of good and evil does arise because the not individual has no choice in the matter. We cannot hold someone responsible for characteristics or behaviour that they have no control over.
To the editor: This is in response to Patricia Boyes’letter of March 8th (“Our being longs for Him”). As a rule, I do not argue with avowed irrationalists, since argument with them is impossible. However, I- am tired of seeing remarks such as Ms. Boyes’ continually being left unchallenged.Asidefrom ridiculous assertions about human nature and blatant contradictions. (such as claiming to know that knowledge is
unattainable), Ms, Boyes has .once again demonstrated that religions are not philosophies (if they can be called such) for living life on earth. Reason is the only thing that separates man from animals, and the use of his mind is the only thing which allows man to survive. It is precisely man’s mind that the theists and all other mystics wish to destroy, by discrediting it and subordinating it to something “higher”. Do not claim that Christianity is somehow different
I, however, believe that man has free will, and this applies to his sexual preference&as well as all his other beliels and values. Sexuality, however, is learned so early and ingrained so dee ly that etting people to thin K ‘rationa !tly about their sexual orientation can be like tr ing to convert the Pope to at E eism, If you are seriously concerned with this issue, try the following to answer questions; -why should one prefer sex partners of the opposite rather than the same ender? -what are tw e differences between friendshi , love and romantic love, an B what role does sex play in any of them? -what exactly do the terms “masculine” and “feminine”
irrationalists from other forms of mysticism and occultism. It is not. The fundamental starting point of all of them is the denial of reason. The ‘fact that some religions are institutionalized and accepted by a large number of people (though definitely not a majority) does not change their fundamental, mystical nature. It is interesting to note that astrology also has a large and ever-increasing following. (Incidentally, Tf you look-up “mysticism” in the dictionary, I think the definition will
mean? -are there difference (sic)between men and women other than the obvious structural ones? If yes, are they culturally or genetically determined?

To the editor: The Arts Student Union (A.S.U.) is in the hands of incompetents. While this may not be new news, the acuity of it has been driven home again. On Friday, March lst, the Arts Student Council voted to cancel Fryday Pubs because the A.S.U. lacked funds to support the financial sinkhole - much less to finance clubs dependent upon its support. Yet, on March lath, posters appeared announcing the re-institution of the pubs. This decision was made by A.S.U. executive without approval of council. When questioned, Mr. James Milburn, interim president since Jeff Tiffin’s resignation, stated that he “doesn’t have to go through the normal channels.” Mr. Milburn seems to believe he is above the democratic system. Social Director Ross Morrissey quipped, “Were you under the impression that council decisions do matter?” Some of us did have faith in the system andeven lauded Mr. Milburn’s takeover. This move by the executive. shatters all illusions.and says toall Council-Members that their opinjons are invalid and unimportant. At that same meeting, the clubs decided not to force the A.S.U. to take out a loan so thti they could receive the monetary allotments necessary to function. However, when the A.S.U. made money og.tkpQirective 17 Pub at Fed Hall, it was assumed that ilie societies might receive a meagre portion of their allotment. When History Society asked if it might receive some of the profit, Mr. Milburn said that the money would be needed to bail the English and Economics Societies out ot debt. However, Mr. Milburn then told the Economics Society that “We (A.S.U) don’t owe you a thing!” Mr. Milburn, there is an inconsistency somewhere. This issue is only nominally money, the main point is honesty nd integrity. Where is your integrity as a student leader? Can you and your executive ignore council decisions and misinform the societies you are supposed to unite? - Ah, but power corrupts. Rob Irish ’ English Society D.D. Smajda Val Spring History Society

To the editor: I have noticed a disturbing trend recently in letters to the editor, especially in letters commenting on Zeke Gerrard’s column. Many people have objected to Zeke’s column because they consider homosexuality to be disgusting and immoral, or even without even criminal, pretending to explain why they believe this. Last week’s Imprint (22/02), .for instance, contained a letter from a man who called Zeke a “raving homosexual” and objected to homosexuality on the grounds that homosexuals disease spread the dead1 AIDS. Heterosexua r s also can spread diseases, venereal or otherwise, so I do not consider this much of an argument. As for “raving homosexual”, Zeke

To the editor: The letter of Shayla Gunter the (March 8) ponders . . question as to whether or not the decision of abortion should be a free choice. Christians believe that after conception’ the life in the womb of a woman is a creation of God which no man

War and famine To the editor: While western nations may not be completely to blame for the situation of the third world we can’t, as Tim Moggeridge states, claim complete innocence. Before European colonization, the means of population control in Africa were warfare and famine. As Tim asserts, it was a cultural necessity to have large families under these conditions. Fine; the population level was stable. During the of European colonization, the structure of African society was rearranged to produce raw materials for the European market. Where before there existed basically selfsufficient village units, there now exist huge population concentrations at the cities to satisfy industrial demands for cheap labour. Many second or third generation city dwellers have lost their traditional hereditary rights to land, making it impossible to go “back to the land”. Farm land was bought by international interests to produce luxury foods for the west, often by technology intensive, lowlabour means. This leaves less arable land for the basic needs of survival. With the introduction of modern medicine, populations began to soar in Africa; families were still large since thousands of years of tradition can’t be erased overnight. Now the magnitude of the problem and the amount of suffering is greater than it has ever been. Perhaps the western way was never suited to African societies? African self-government on a full country scale has, by and large, proved itself to be a dismal failure. After his huge 10 year celebration, it was declared at the U.N. that Menghistu “showed little interest in the welfare of his countrymen”. However, a country like Ethiopia is now expected to compete in the world economic milieu, and they can’t, or won’t, back out to aim for self-sufficiency. Ethiopian leaders are not starving themselves, and in fact try to emulate the materiali?m of western life as much as possible. Given the record of incompetence of the Ethiopian government, it is doubtful that promoting trade, as Tim suggests, would help the famine-stricken peasants. Any wealth generated by trade would still end up at the top. The leaders would undoubtedly place emphasis on production that was easily monitored and taxed. Unfortunately, village-level farming or land recovery projects don’t fall into this category. The food aid being sent to Ethiopia now is intended to help them through an unusally long drought; the ongoing programs are intended mainly to educate groups of people in agricultural self-sufficiency. Both are worthy of our support if we attach any value to life and if we are to face the fact that the western world and Africa have not developed independently.
Conformists at Waterloo To the editor: At the risk of (seemingly) dragging out one incident too far; the “Larry letter” has brought to light some real character limitations in a few of the “normal” people in this school today. When I came from my very middle class high school in Toronto where Lacoste and Polo were the norm and where being radical meant wearing socks with your topsiders, I found that-UW and university life in general offered a refreshing change. The ;,eople here, for the most part, are not clones if eachither. They r.:ome from such varied backgrounds that:they provide for an interesting, often colourful mix. Waterloo has its share of “preppies”,“punkers”, “plaid shirt”, “aspiring yuppie” and secretary types. Basically, most of the students at Waterloo are (pretty much) conformists, they do what they are told and dress, although there is a lot of variety, in a manner that does not really excite or offend anyone. One obvious exception to this generalization is the group that is affectionately known as “Punkers”. They dress differently and often do a lot of other things differently too. Why? Because they want to! These people have the strength to be different in an environment where although on the surface it appears that selfexpression is encouraged but often extreme individualism is frowned upon and often repressed. This letter is not written by one “punker” trying to defend another’s actions. I am not a “punker”, I am, although at times, regret it; a “preppie” - I don’t like to be labelled but since for the sake of this letter I am referring mainly to the way that an individual dresses and not his attitudes, I don’t mind labelling myself as a prep. Since university is meant to be, at least in part, a training for the real world I think tollerance (sic) should be promoted. If the Larrys of this world continue to oppose rather than adapt to their “colourful” environment they will continue to be stepped on by the different people like the derranged (sic) punker! I am glad for Larry’s sake, that he has such a supportive letter writing girlfriend - what would he do without her?!! Charles McCormick
by Shayla Gunter Recently, I met a 21 year old man who doesn’t believe in premarital sex. I was completely amazed when he told me this. After seven months of university, 1 finally meet a guy over seventeen who’s not concerned only with getting laid. 1really respected his view. It was actually refreshing to meet someone like him. Now, I do believe in pre-marital sex, but it has to be my choice. No one can ever pressure me into anything. My religion is against premarital sex and many of my female friends follow these laws. It really bugs me when we are talking about pre-marital sex. The phrase sounds so official. “I don’t believe in PRE-MARITAL SEX. I can’t belieive that you believe in PRE-MARITAL SEX” It sounds like a crime. I don’t see it as a big issue. If you believe it’s right for you - fine. If not - that’s fine too. Many frosh seem overwhelmed when they get to university. They don’t really know what to expect; they may be scared and confused. Are they ready for sex or not? Everyone goes through this stage. It may occur in high school, university or even after Some people may argue that I university, but it’s there. underestimate the sexual awareness and emotional stability of some frosh. I never said that we were naive, just sometimes unsure of ourselces. We need time to figure out our beliefs. One thing I do know for sure is that pressure is the worst thing for us. You’d think that the people who do pressure their partners would be more mature. But unfortunately, every university is swarmed with immaturity and the “if you really loved me you’d prove it” shit, or the “but everyone else does it” line. I think that some guys should team how to take no for an When wiil people learn that when someone says answer. something firmly, they more often than not, really mean it? Today’s youth knows what our morals are: we know what our beliefs and values are; and we know what we want in many aspects of life. We are more sure of ourselves now. I’m not saying that pre-marital sex is wrong. By no means do I believe that. I just think that some people need more time than others do to realize what’s right for them. So those people who are unsure, should feel no pressure. 5elieve me. Not everyone’s doing it!.

Is this a free country? To the editor: Ms. Gunter was certainly right when she started her March 8 “A Frosh Eye View” column “On Abortion” by noting that abortion is a touchy topic requiring serious consideration before being written about. Alas! reading further left me sure she, and the 20 or so people she questioned, had given little or no consideration, serious or otherwise, to the topic. Nonetheless, she did write about it and ce qui est fait est fait. Would there really be as many questions to ask as Ms. Gunter thinks if Canadians faced up to the fact that the fetus is a human being - a person in her/himself? Abortion is wrong in every circumstance. In the particular instance Ms. Gunter cited where pregnancy strains a woman’s already poor health to the extent her life is in danger, a doctor would practice first to heal the woman, for as the mother’s health deteriorates, so does the child’s, If in attempting to heal the woman a miscarriage resulted it would be unintended (and unfortunate) - no one, especially a doctor, may at any time choose the mother’s life over the child’s, or vice versa. What responsible government could even consider legalizing abortion at all, let alone over-concern itself with questions such as how readily abortion should be made availabie, whether abortions should be conducted in public hospitals or private clinics, or with or without a minor’s parents’ consent; questions which ignore the ethics of abortion? Are such questions asked to avoid facing reality? The real question to be asked is why abortion is not outlawed in Canada, and why our governments are not at all concerned with giving sufficient moral and financial support to mothers and children who, because of youth, unemployment, poverty, irresponsible partners/fathers, oppressive social views, or any other reason, will face hardships while the mother is pregnant and after the child is born. Why aren’t the governments sponsoring programmes which would prevent these situations from occurring in the first place? Finally, to be pro-choice is not necessarily to be pro-abortion, as Ms. Gunter said, but neither is being pro-life necessarily being anti-choice since only the possibility of making the one choice that would cause later stress and difficulty is taken away. A sure sign of a sick society is the guaranteeing those who can choose the right to do so at the expense of the right to life and later, choice, of those who still cannot. Is this really a free country, after all? M.G, Cotter

A public response by Gord Durnin Dear Kevin Jardine and those who he may represent: Re: “To Judy With Love” (Prague Spring) I could appeal to artistic license, but you would counter with my personal responsibility to the “Peace Movement” and my own integrity compromised. I could tell you that I underwent a momentary lapse in consistency with regard to my world view, say that I am sorry and send you smiling on your way. But that would be a dishonest representation of my feelings. Or I could accuse you of being naive and hypocritical in your own criticism; naive because of your perception of my intent; hypocritical because the “violence” in your judgement of me as contradicting “the freedom and peace” I “purport to defend”, but that would be a fallacy of Tu Quo Que. Besides, I would be using the term violence in a way that perverts its meaning and the cycle of fingerpointing would continue unbroken. You could counter my counter with the same criticism of naivety and hypocricy. What I will say is that I am an artist and a human being. I sometimes feel anger, disgust, and frustration. Those things I tried to convey in the piece which appeared in the Prague Spring issue of Imprint. The poem never attempted a “rational critique” of anything. A scream in the night is not rational, it is an emotional reaction, As far as words without meaning go, you have called me a pacifist and a Christian, however serious or light your intent. I contend that without substantial qualification those labels are nothing but empty rhetoric. (I am not even going to begin to address “love, peace or freedom”). I prefer to remain outside those call-words until people understand what my beliefs are. If by “hatred”, yau mean that I have irreconcilable antipathy for, or seek vengeance upon a person named Judy, I think you both misunderstand me and the focus of the poem. I do not know the person named Judy, I only , know of what a person, I once saw, grotesquely summed up. I have no animosity towards that person who is of necessity much more than what she communicated at that certain time and space. If by hatred, you mean ‘that I have irreconcilable antipathy towards and seek vengeance upon the ideas supports and perpetuates the the mindset - which “system” that degrades people at best, and slaughters them in the many ways we all know of at worst, I would have to agree with your assessment. However, I stand firm in my hatred and will not apologize for it.

To the editor: It has been a long time coming but I have finally decided to put my thoughts to paper. The “revelation” that was responsible for this reaction was the nature of the answers in response to last week’s campus question. How can so many people (assuming that this is a representative group) ecluate money and security to success? Has it not been proven enough times that the most wealthy people are the most miserable? And those who feel that after they leave here that they do not have much more to achieve than to settle down, get a house, a- couple of children and a station wagon (with wood panel sides and Golden Retriever). Is this what coming here, to university, means to you? Well, if you think about it logically, we as humans have been given the needs and desires to seek comfort and security (eg. we choose a course of study because we know that when we are through that we would get a job that will pay weli). After we have satisfied these needs, we feel tha there is nothing left to risk because we fee] that we $a.ve reached our pinnacle of success, There is more, much more to life than this. What ever happened to the great desire to achieve the ultimate goal in life: peace of mind and body? This goal is almost but not completely extinct from our world of materialistic wealth? At present [and in the future) the answer is yes. There are harmfui repercussions if we mature with this attitude. (we pass our materialism on to the younger generations and the circle repeats), Why must there be a yardstick to measure success? To the aware individual there is no such thing, for he is one who does not stop to measure his success, He is continually willing to risk [not specifically the money markets, but in life). What I can read from these representative statements is: “After I have done what I have intended to do, I canisettIe down and relax.” Here’s one for the members of this majority. “To risk nothing is the greatest risk of all.” Your statements show conformity and your life is planned towards the predominant conservative norm. Materialism. So why do we come here? To me, it is a total education: academic, physical, mental, social, and emotional. We as students are here to mature individually: at our own rate and time. To be aware of our surroundings and feelings. Brian Singh
othing is pushed on clients To the editor: I was recently shocked to be told hy a professor at one of colleges that church the Planned Parenthood pushes abortions on people. This is simply noi true. I am a former volunteer for Planned Parenthood, and was one long before I was aware of the controversy surrounding abortion. In the training for my volunteer work, I was made aware that there are three (3) legal options available to any pregnant woman and that the most important thing in pregnancy couselling is respect for the woman end her decisions. This includes not even mentioning abortion if she so wishes, Nothing is pushed on her. In actual statistics, abortion referral is only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s com-
munity work. Furthermore, Planned Parenthood’s aim is education and the prevention of Ideally, they pregnancy. would like no one to need abortion counselling because they would like there to be no ur,wanted pregnancies. As a student in psychology courses, I have learned of the problems that biases in personal opinions can cause. Doesn’t this professor realize that there is a problem of bias in his information? The facts (and they are facts, not opinion) that I have presented contain no bias. There is no excuse for teaching misinformation, and I hope that it is not happening. What I want to know is: when vlill this misinformation stop? Susan CadelI 3rd yr. Arts.
Bovey report unsatisfactory To the editor: There have been several intelligent critical comments about the Bovey Commission Report published here. However, the most obvious errors have been overlook&d. This attempt at a report is without an abstract, while it
does contain recommendations there are no contilusions! Sections have a four-tiered heading number (section 4.2.1.S, for example). the report is In short, unsatisfactory (by coordination work-report standards) Dave McKellar
To the editor: Having read last week’s letter by FL]. Zuian (On why homosexuals never fully integrate into society), I am completely amazed at his or her twisted logic, In the letter, Zulan argues that the inclusion of homosexuals in the armed forces would eventually “entail the breakdown of military organization”. However, this conclusion is based on the assumption that homosexuality is wrong when, more realistically, it is just different [abnormal is the word that Zulan uses, and quite correctly, but it should not have the connotations of perversity that the tone of Zulan’s letter gives it.). Unfortunately, there are many people in our society who, for whatever reason, cannot accept anyone who is different (as the infamous Larry cannot). Why should the presence of homosexuals cause any more problems in keeping “genuine affection” separate from “sexual overtones” than the presence of women? There is no reason. J agree with Zulan that conformity to certain standards is necessary, but Zulan is trying to carry it too far. To say that someone who doesn’t conform to the heterosexual “standard” cannot expect and does not deserve equality is like saying that Presbyterians, people who vote NDP, or anyone who doesn’t live in a certain city cannot expect full equality or acceptance. After all, each of these groups is a minority which does not conform to the “standard”, and the members of these groups are “abnormal” (in the true sense of the word). Ms./Mr. Zulan may be correct in saying that homosexuals do not meet the standards of our society. If so, however, it is because our society contains too many narrow-minded bigots. It is the attitudes of society (and, as a consequence, the standards of society) that should be changed, and there is no good reason for not doing so. When that is accomplished, gay people will no longer have to fear the scorn of society (whether it be from a majority or a minority). Nor will they have to fear the verbal and physical abuse that sorme people feel justified in heaping on them, which, by the way, is the real reason many gay people “hide their identity from us.” And when that day arrives, R.J. Zulan and a lot of others may find out that the heterosexual majority is not nearly as vast as they now imagine. Hugh John Cook Civil Engineering
To the editor: As Chris Gordon has pointed out in his response to you Emmet Raftery, on Friday March 1, the expression of an attitude as,,that which you practicr2 is certainly dangerous. I couldn’t agree more. Although I am a staff member at this institution, I am also a part time student. From a staff member’s point of view, it’s great entertainment but my student half also considers it important. Let me get straight to the heart of the matter. I myself am gay. The freedom of speech issue notwithstanding, your last response to “Chrissy”, has quite frankly made me sick. It is one thing to rail against a particular social group because you refuse to understand. It is quite another matter to attack an individual in that group. As I understand it, Zeke, in his column speaks about issues affecting us all; this is education. Your replies in some way are expected, but since you have chosen to attack individuals based on that individual’s agreement, then in my mind this is clearly
insulting that individual’s intelligence. You have succeeded in insulting a man whom I know by accquantence [sic) to be a warm, involved and caring human being. In a short time I will go with members of a panel to speak to a sexuality class taught here on campus. I go, Emmet, because of people like you. At the end of each class that I have spoken to, I have wished that I could say to the students, “Somewhere, someday, a young man OF woman will go to his or her parents for acceptance, understanding and love with the knowledge of something so much bigger than themselves and they will go with the knot of fear of rejection in their stomachs. That young man or woman may be your son or daughter. Will you be able to accept the person before you? Mr. Raffery, my parents couldn’t and to a great extent they still can’t. How much pain are you willing to cause? John A. Sitler Library Staff
To the editor: No, the FASS production did not receive enough print! Correct me if I am wrong, but it is my opinion (and that of others as well) that the Imprint is a student newspaper whose primary purpose is to report university events to the university community. FASS is exactly such an event. It is more than just another theatre production. It is one which involves Faculty, Administration, Staff and Students of this university, and it is a production which reflects the events taking place in this community. As such, it should receive priority and good coverage from a newspaper serving exactly this community. Please do not offer to put my name in italics and quotation
marks, as tha,t is not the point I am trying to make (nor was it the point which David Bain was trying to make, as anyone who carefully read his letter would realize). Although an article written by a FASS participant would indeed be enlightening, and that is definitely something that could be done, it would still not excuse the Imprint staff from covering the event more satisfactorily. Yes, an Imprint reviewer is an outsider, but as reporter, he/she should ;erhaps do some research before criticizing an event like FASS, so that the reviewer understands what the event is about and so can more effectively comment on its appearance.

Is Larry really humourous?. To the editor: I wonder how many people read bout the alleged incident that took place on Feb. 8, as told by “Carol Feschuk”, and found humour in this myth. I also wonder how many people found additional humour in pointing out the obvious and subsequently slandering the reputations of both Carol & Larry in Waterloo.
I wonder if anyone would care to hear that the alledged (sic) might have been set-up by somebody who never existed at all. I wonder how people would find r:izur in this. Homer Watson 3B Elec. Eng. Editor’s note: Dear Mr. Watson, the letter was real, the incident actually happened.
Shayla Gunter’s column was but a pale and onedimensional reflection of the realities of abortion, Casual surveys and political rhetoric cannot begin to connect with the deep emotional response that the idea of abortion stirs in a woman. I would suspect tha? for most women the thought of abortion first arises as part of a terrible fear of pregnancy. From the moment I first was sexually involved I often carried just below the surface of my consciousness the fear - what if I’m pregnant? This was a fear that my mother also bore - and probably had born for many years. When at 15 I had my first boyfriend, she boldly informed me, “If you ever get pregnant, you’ll have an abortion”, leaving no room for debate. At that time I had never thought of such a thing, but several years later I came to share her fear that maybe I might make a mistake and get pregnant. This anxiety (and the resentment that follows from it) is what makes many women advocate abortion. Society screams at us “Sex, Sex, Sex”, but most of us dread the thought of losing our freedom in single parenthood or a forced marriage. So these days, many are saying, “Abortion, Abortion, Abortion”. It is presented as the only way out of the trap. And some women, when they realize one day that it has happened, they are pregnant, head for the only door they see marked exit - abortion. Is abortion really an escape which should be freely offered to all? No. Those who offer it as such are selling a lie. The lie is that abortion is like contraception, but a bit later and a bit more radical. Those who advocate abortion avoid mentioning that it involves killing a baby. If the child is mentioned at all it is referred to as a “fetui” and no human qualities are attributed to it. The womb becomes a black hole which is the bearer of doom. The child is but a lump of tissue. How different this is from the attitude of the mother who bears a “wanted” child. The womb then becomes a cherished and protected place wjlich holds h miracle of life. The mother contemplates the growing child and anticipates every physical change and evidence of growth. A miscarriage, no matter how early in her term, is a tragedy met by condolences from all. Such empathy is seldom extended to a woman bearing an unwanted child, Seldom does she find a patient and supportive listener who has the courage to face the fear and horror with her. Most of us carry the same fear within ourselves and want to silence her pain, and encourage her to erase the present by denying the existence of the child which threatens her future independence. How seldom are we willing to help her explore her many alternatives and their ramifications. A child is not a disease. It cannot be eliminated without effects. Every woman whom I’ve known of who has had an aboriion is left with deep, emotional scars and heavy guilt. The realization that her child has been murdered must eventually surface in some way. If not she will remain in a state of emotional numbness. Reality can be responded to but it cannot be destroyed. The participation in the death of one’s child is a reality few women are able to cope with quickly and painlessly. Perhaps next time that we suggest that abortion should be freely offered to all, we will look beyond our own superficial selfishness and think of the ramifications of our opinions. Do we really want to make abortion so accessible and hassle-free? It is already legal with the consent of a doctor. Do we want to encourage mothers to take the lives of their children without even professional consultation and counselling? This would be an obscene neglect of our responsibilities to protect the vulnerable both the desparate mother and her child, and would mean our participation in both the murder and deep emotional scarring of many individuals.

iPorn Magazines on campus/JSo, you want to be a spy Q / by Steve Ditner The Student Village Stores sell a lot of things, like aspirin, toothpaste, and mugs that say “Waterloo” on them. They also sell glossy magazines with naked women sprawled across. their covers. The magazines are Playboy and Penthouse, the heavyweights of the consumer porn They sell well, the game. woman in the Village 2 store says. She feels uncomfortable selling them, but if students want to buy them, she will sell them. The sale of pornographic magazines on campus raises a queition for some people;
specifically, should a university sponsored institution make pornography to its students? Several female residents felt that the store should make women’s magazines like Playgirl available also, indicating a stand against sexism and not pornography. However, the response of most students was apathetic. “1 think it’s fine,” said John Curran. “If you’re old enough to buy it, who cares?” But some people do care. “It’s nauseating at a university. We should be above that,” commented Kate Krug, a sociology student.
Vera Vanderbosch, a Kinesiology student, felt that “Pornography does not belong in a place of higher learning. Erotica is fine, but pornography is not. Playboy and Penthouse are pornograp hit. The majority of persons interviewed felt that pornography possessed .a demeaning quality. “It cheapens sex,” said Glynis Duncan, a Health Studies student. “The representation of sex in those magazines is entirely from a male point of view, and not a particularly realistic view. either.” she said.

Canadian University Press Canada’s top-secret spy service wants to recruit university graduates, preferably arts majors, into its ranks. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service is looking for graduates with political science and sociology backgrounds, a receptionist at CSIS’s Ottawa office said. “Languages are also good,” she said. Most of the new spy service’s positions have been filled with people transferred from the RCMP security service. But “a lot of neonle stayed with the R&P, As~

there are openings in every category,,” she said. The former Liberal government invoked closure last spring to cut off debate and pass Bill C-9, creating the new spy service. CSIS is a civilian operation charged with “investigating threats to the security of Canada” and has no law enforcements power. Gays need not apply. The RCMP does not hire gays, its commissioner Roger Simmonds told the committee last year, because “There are few members of any police
organization that are comfortable at this moment in our history with people of that persuasion in their midst.” Finn said the CSIS would not refuse to hire gays, per se, but he told the committee “I suspect that sexual orientation, in the same way as debt loads or other kinds of behavioural factors, would be one factor in determining the overall suitability for employment of an individual ,, ... Graduates with unorthodox views also won’t get jobs.

IHouse Iof ‘Debates Yes, Waterloo, there is a debating club on campus. It was lormed five years ago and is called House of Debates. Although the club is quite young, it has developed an impressive reputation on the debating circuit. Outof five tournaments this .year, Waterloo debaters won awards in all but one. This includes a second place finish at the Central Canada Debating Championships in Montreal. 1 The House of Debates is opei’to all students and facu&y of , the University of Waterloo, although only students may attend tournaments. One of the reasons for’the club’s success is that it) doesn’t discriminate against its weaker debaters. Everybody gets a chance to go to tournaments and the weaker speakers are often paired up with stronger ones. Besides giving novices a great opportunity to learn what makes a good speech, this adds fun to the ~debating. By I removing the pressure to win tournaments, the debaters stay relaxed. ’ This has been the winning secret of the House of Debates. The club trains people in public-speaking, especially on Gtting forth convjncing arguments and thinking analytically.’ Essentially, they teach the art 6f persuasion. Weekly meetings usually consist of one impromptu debate and c round of public speaking. The style of debate is jarliamentary, the debate mimics the House of Commons. A debate cosists of two teams; called the government and jpposition, as well as the speaker of the House. The debaters re given a resolution and the government side prepares a case )r ten minutes. The debate is initiated by a government lember who .is called the Prime Minister. It is their duty to zfine the terms of the resolution’and lay the mtions of the Dvernment case. The speeches then alternate from team to team with the Jposition trying to attack the government case and the jvernment trying to save its skin. The role of the speak?r is to aintain order and ensure that the debate doesn’t degenerate -:o an exchange of insults. After the debate, members of the dience offer commqnts, helpful hints, and general gressions. Public speaking is different from debating in many ways. In Bst cases, it offers the speaker a chance to talk about whatever )rl his or her mind at the time. Each peI’son in the club writes wn a topic, which can be a single word, a -Song title or .ything else, and drops it into-a hat. The speakers randomly chose a topic and, with a few seconds :paration, speak on it for five minutes. A good sense of ,moui helps, but a serious speech can be just as entertaining as :omical one. The word debating often conjures up images of stuffy old :n spouting boring rhetorical dogma. This definitely does not fleet the House of Debates. Issues such as abortion or capital punishment are never bated. Although these topics are interesting and relevant, not much n be said about them in a short speech. They also are quite 111because everyone has heard the main arguments before. . Instead, the House of Debates ponders such resolutions as, rhe University of Waterloo should become a free and ldependent country” or “The Toronto Maple Leafs should be bolished”. Besides their entertainment value, arguing over uch issues forces the debaters to use their imaginations. It also ives the debaters a chance to develop their speaking styles and rains .them to think on their feet. Debating is an extremely important skill to have because you vi11 be doing it for the rest of your life. Your debates may not ake place in a formal atmosphere but debating is a common tctivity. ’ Spectators are welcome to meetings so don’t be shy. lneetings are held each Monday at 530 pm in St. Jeromes,room L29. c David Bigelow

A citizen of terrible unrest, Enus stumbles along a lonely country road, under an or-e, jack-o-lantern moon, dreaming of Amarantha. As night collapses to its stellar end, he feels his way home throx.@h the blast of dark rum mixing with his heart’s volatile love, detonating confusion in ‘h&3 splendid skull. He knows the moonlight and the starlight, but h& now-sexual ims@nation fuels metamorphosis, pure transcension. Now, vines become Amarantha’s long, ebony hair, the stream, her laugh; the dark tumbling clouds, her wrist’s curve; the ripe apples, her breasts. Wanting her more than he’s ever wanted anyone, Enns imagines the grave as a chrysalis. If he could lie in Am’s arms, between her breasts, on any bed, even grass, and love and be loved without end, that moment of sweetness would comprise eternity, and he would die happily in that ceaseless perfection. Am’s soul is a butterfly to Enus. He has justwalked her home end held her warmth close to him before surrendering to the night’s chlu. Her softness is a beautiful terrain, the plumage of cotton. She is freedomitself, an inr=itement to riot, insurrection. Her hair holds a perfume that was like alcohol and violets, a Molotov cocktail of sweetness. He looks up and sees constellations. He wants to dance the arc of corn, i the twist of vine, the leap of water. He has a vision of Am in night’s sharp plunge and pitch end roll of hay -- mannerisms of creatures caught in the act, leaping for the privacy of bushes. Wantmg her almost more than salvation, Enus hears the crickets crack a juicy tune, and sees Am swoon, her dark hair tumbling like a mm’s veil, while wild rose petals fall like blood on a field of wheat.

Despite the wide’ press coverage of late and its 16 year history at UW, there am still many popular misconceptions about the I.S. program. This article will attempt to fill the gap, so that students and faculty might gain a more comprehensive and accurate understanding of the objectives and fu.nctioning of this unique program. The main purpose of I.S. was never to provide students with a transcript Ml of respectable grades and a crisp graduation diploma. Bather, the program was designed to allow students of varying backgrounds and interests to establish their own programs of study, freed from the requirements of preestablished programs with their structures, routines, and limited course format. It has also encouraged students to Synnesize the diverse 4spects of their studies to form a meanir@ul whole, hence the name Inix@Studies. To achieve these goals, the program was set up in 1969 to provide a rich environment in which students could do independent reading and writing, attend and lead seminars, discuss with other students and resource persons, take relevant courses at this and other educational institutions, do field work and work individw with facully members. There are no required courses and no additional credits granted outside of courses which students mey decide to take to supplement their independent study. In this way, I.S. provides a unique opportunity to pursue an unusual program beyond that which is available through undergraduate course work Students also have the opportunity to spend time in experimentation and clarification of goals which is a valuable component of education.

The program has no professors, but has instead a secretariat and seven resource people who are hired by Operations Council, the governing body of I.S. The secretariat is made up of a coordinator and an administrative assistant who are responsible for administrative duties and are accountable to Council. The coordinator also acts as a spokesperson between the program and the university administration.

I went there every night for the full week. . . missed a lot of my assignments at OCA Though it was relevant to my education, Ln their eyes I failed” t.w.
The seven resource people are an indispensable part of maoy students’ programs of study. They are catalysts and consultants, helping students to clarify their amdemic goals, act&g aa a sounding board for their ideas, and referring them to appropriate resources both inside and outside of the university. With the help of these staff and other students and faculty, I.S. students work out the direction and form of their studies and embark on a journey which often yields significant and unanticipated fiats. The 1976 Senate Review stressed that I.S. was never meant to be a “clearing house” in which carefully selected students would proceed towards welldefined acrtdemic objectives drawn from activities in the University departments. In fact, documentation of studies and solicitation of evaluation of work from faculty advif3ors, resource people and fellow students is the responsibility of each student. Nonetheless, in order to proceed in the program, I.S. students are required to submit a yearly report otklinhg and documenting their studies. How can the University control academic qualityinsuchanunstructured environment? The University grants degrees. If an 1.8. student wants to receive a degree, s/he comes under the strict evaluation of University faculty. AAM I
I de, x
stu d entd need
Stum in I.S. by no means assures that s/he will be granted a degree. Many students feel that they have no need for a degree and pursue studies for their inherent value alone. On the other hand, if a student does decide that s/he wishes to graduate, s/he is subject to the controls andstandards of the university. The student must make a formal proposal to the Academic Board appointed by Senate. This body of professors determines whether or not the student has sufficient background and is working at a senior undergraduate , level at least, and ifthe proposedprogram is feasible and degree-worthy. Upon recommendation by the Academic Board, the student then completes the proposed project of study over a minimum of two terms under the evaluation and supervision of a least two regular university professors. These supervisors are responsible for exw the student and ensuring that the student’s work is of ,suf&ient quality to be grant&d a Bachelor of Independent Studies degree. In this wey, non-degree students are

tie to pursue their studies according to their interests and needs, while degree students and the University are assured of highstendards of qualityingraduates with degrees. Indeed, successful degree canditites have almost invariably been commended for the or@inality and high quality of their work Another very important component of a student’s education in I.S. is his/her participation in the administrative and decision-making process. Since the initial conception, it was recogn&ed that in order to meet the needs of a diverse and continually changing student population, all members of staff and students must have the equal opportunity to be involved in the decisions adihthg their studies. In response to evident need, Operations Council and its supporting committees arose aa the only,satisfactory means of serving these very diverse needs. Operations Council is the governing body responsible for all policy decisions, such as hiring, admissions, budget allocations, etc. It is made up of all registered students and staff, each haMng one vote, with a minimum quorum of 20% of enrollment and is a dire-ct democracy. It is supported by a number of specialized committees whose function is to inform council and implement its decisions. These committees am made up of any students and staff who wish to participate. The Council and all of the committees have policies, guidelines and
practices which generally have these aims. 1) to ensure that all members of I.S. are informed of the meetings of committees and council, 2) to ensure that there is no concentration of power allotted to any individual or group, 3) to allocate the budget so that it corresponds to student resource needs, 4) to remain always able to juti@ the use of the budget, the establishment of policies andpractice within I.S. and 5) to remain open to ’ stmrctural changes, with a prejudice towards augmenting access to independent education Each member of Council is responsible to ensure that s/he is informed of the workings of I.S. andthe University as a whole, so that s/he mey make responsible decisions and participate to the full extent of m/her abili$y. The structures of I.S. are not biased towazd 4ny pazticular phfloclophy or defmition of education They are des@ned to provide the maximum of resources and opportunity for each student to successfully pursue his/her own individual program of education. They are also designed to ensure that no student or group is able to monopobze power or resources, thus obstructing the education process of others. The Senate Fbview of I.S. in 1975, chaired by TA Brzustowski, expressed strong support of the objectives and structures of Integrated Studies and confidence in the program’s capacity for internally generated, constructive change.

Then there is YolandaKing, daughter of MartinLuther King Jr.; current director of “The Matin Luther King Jr. Centre for Nonviolent Social Change” inAtlanta Georgia; who is dedicated to the furthering of her father’s work; who came to Trinity UnitedChurchinKitchener Sunday, March 3 and spoke about the need to continue in the push for racial eqmity and global harmony. BInally, there @ Joan Baez who stood beside Bob Dyla;n as the Queen of folk music in the 80’s; who was jailed for protest of the Vietnam War; who vi&ted Hanoi in 1972 only to witness the worst bombing of e ci~inhistory; who has consistently spoken out against VictUrUzation, be it of American Blacks (she walkedwith Martin Luther King in 1968) or of Latin Americans (she is deeply involved with the sanctuaxy movement in 1985); who has written and spoken and acted advocating pacifism; who came to Kitchener on Friw March 1 for a concert at Centre in the Square; andwho kindly$rantedImprint an interview.
The extra emphasis put on the nonviolent means to bring social change underlies the me&age of these three that there is an immediate need for change. Indeed, their vision makes the notion of violence anachronistic.

We have to break out of that in the 80’s.”

canned dogfood...without thecan hF Meat Is Murder The Smiths WEA by Tim Perlich Imprint staff Based on their past achievements, it comes as no great surprise that The Smiths have once again produced an outstanding work. What is surprising is that instead of attacking Meat Is Murder with an idea (which historically has been held to a great degree by the rest of the human race) that progress is synonymous with “bigger” or “more complex”, they have simplified their lyrical and musical statements and taken a far more direct approach. This is not to say that Johnny Marr’s arrangements have suddenly become banal or the Morrisey’s lyrics have soured to triviality. On the contrary, Mr. Marr’s guitar continues to soar with heavenly brilliance, clear of the muddying effects of excessive synthetic enhancement. Now a tearing acoustic jangle (“The Headmaster Ritual), now a bouyant rockabilly rave-up (“Rusholme Ruffians”), now and MC5ish blowout (“What She Said”), now, a wafting waltz (“The Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore”) and that is only the first side. Mr. Morrissey equals Mr. Marr’s performance by shooting his cutting indictments directly to the center of his targets, leaving no room to second guess his intent. The lyrics of “Headmaster Ritual” require no explanation:
...Beligerent ghouls Run Manchester schools Spineless swines Cemented minds Sir leads the troops Jealous of youth Same old suit since 1962...
.. .and )he jlestr you so fancifully fry is not succulent, tasty or nice it’s death for no reason and death for no reason is MURDER... Though admittedly potent slashes, Morris&y’s greatest achievement is found in the introspecti& innocence of “Well I Wonder”. -The setting is provided musically by Mr. Marr’s sad lament, fluidly conjuring the rain-soaked despair of someone walking past a darkened house on a painfully familiar street (oh, the melodrama...). With just a few graceful strokes, Mr. Morrissey brings to mind all the feelings, the hate, desperation, and the foolish hope that belong to unrequited love. Mr. Marr’s unforgettabie melodies along with the lyrical purity of Mr. Morrissey’s insight make Meat Is Murder more important than eating...well, meat anyway.

by Stephen Ditner. The appearance of Vancouver group Images In Vogue last Thursday night, March 7, at Fed Hall was something of a disappointment. Like so many electropop acts, Images In Vogue makes the trip from studio to stage rather poorly. What is a full, innovative sound in the studio becomes garbled when it is amplified for live performances. The band relies on synthesizers for a big part of their sound. There are three synthesizers, combined with a guitar, electronic percussion, and singer Dale Martindale. In the studio, five musicians playing electronic instruments creates a clean, if complex sound with a lot of depth. Live, the sound seems divided evenly between the wailing synthesizers and the electronic drums.
for headliners like Depeche Lost in the shuffle were the cosmic lyrics and mystic Mode, and Roxy Music, croon of singer Martindale, Images In Vogue has been a and the freestyle riffs of guitar largely studio story, directed Without at radio stations and dance man Ed Shaw. clubs. anything to break them up, Their two releases, the three synthesizers came In Vogue”, and off loud and overpowering. ’ “Images The crowd did try to dance, “Rituals” both sold over but the music had a 10,000 copies in their first couple of months.

LKJ released his first album in 1978 after over five years as the “kind” of dub poets. Since then, he has released four more albums, solidifying his position as a creative and political force among British blacks. The album itself is an excellent cross-section of the best of his work from Forces of Victory, Bass Cultre and last year’s Making History. It traced his musical development and his maturation of

In discussing such bands as The Dream Syndicate, Rain Parade, The Cars, Violent Femmes, and others, they determine that the common denominator could very well be an influence of some band called The Velvet Undergr-

Upon reading the article, a clever A&R man from our favourite record company vaguely remembers hearing that name somewhere before and immediately begins searching through his files for the company’s “new release” form letter. On the letter beside the blank that says “band name here” is the line “was influenced that reads: by The Velvet Underground”. Just to be certain, he checks all the other major label’s release sheets from the past ten years and is startled to discover that every band also claims The Velvets as an influence (except for Madonna who claimed that her only influence was the figure skater in Flashdance). Digging a little deeper reveals that, by a stroke of luck, his company owns the rights to release Velvet Underground recordings. “What a stroke of luck, we’ll re-release all of the group’s old records and capitalize on their newfound
popularity”, he thought, with a smile brighter than his baseball jacket. Leaping into action, his company launches an . intensive feasibility study and a short year later decide to reissue the records. In seeking out the original masters, they uncover a cache of the group’s unreleased recordings. Throwing caution to the wind, they bypAss a second market study due to the unexpected turn of events and remix and release ten of the songs on a mid-priced album entitled VU. Though the original studio versions were not previously issued, some of the songs have turned up over the years in other forms. The glorious “Stephanie Says”, whose understated beauty inspired four consecutive playings, didn’t quite move me the way that Lou Reed’s earlier solo acoustic version did (from the semi-bootleg “...And So On”). “Ocean” (The Velvet’s answer to The Door’s “The End”) and “Lisa Says” appear on the 1969 live album. “She’s My Best Friend” was later used by Lou Reed on Coney Island Baby and similarly
“Andy’s Chest” appears on Mr. Reed’s Transformer. The album’s most oddly is charming moment “Temptation Inside Your Heart” which involves John Cale and Lou trading jabs, bongoes, and the worst approximation of a Motown harmony every committed to vinyl. Still remarkably vita! and

was the second piece of the evening. This work I found to be the most exciting of the evening. In particular, the third movement, Allegro misterioso, calls for the violinists to bow very close to the bridge, producing eerie, harmonic effects. This movement, with the additional instruction. Trio Estatico, often had the musicians lunging out of their chairs with emotion. The final piece of the program was the Quartet in A minor by Franz Schubert. Even with the less-than-complementary acoustics of the Art Gallery, the music was wonderful and as a surprise encore, the Quartet played the second movement of Ravel’s String Quartet. The Alban Berg Quartet played not only with precise technique but with abundant emotion and depth, making my first experience with chamber music a truly enjoyable one.

ALBANBERGQUARTET by W. Morris Imprint staff On Thursday, February 23, the Kitchener/Waterloo Art Gallery had the distinction of playing host to the Alban Berg Quartet. The evening’s performance certainly upheld the quartet’s reputation as being one of the finest in the world. The group, formed in 1970, has built up a sizeable repertoire rooted in the Viennese musical tradition, from Classical to As its name suggests, the contemporary compositions. group’s specialty lies in bringing the music of Alban Berg to life. The quartet’s visit to Kitchener could not have been more timely as this year celebrates Alban Berg’s centennial. Mr. Berg, along with Anton Webern, was the main exponent of Schoenberg’s twelve-tone (serial) approach to writing music. , Mr. Berg’s music is the most accessible of the twelve-tone “school” as he managed to combine the more familiar traditional tonal elements with the often alien-sounding results of serial composition. Mr. Berg was not a strict serialist as Schoenberg and Webei-n were, using the twelve-tone method more as a tool for unusual colouring than as an absolute compositional technique. The program began with Mozart’s Quartet in D minor, immediately revealing the group’s masterful control of its .

by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff Last Saturday night, March 2, was an evening of contrasts at Fed Hall. The ASU/SciSoc-sponsored event featured upand-coming Toronto area bands, Sample and Hold and Direktive 17. The event was billed as a sort of battle of bands which have done well on CFNY’s Great Ontario Talent Search this year. When the lights came on at the end, there could be little doubt that Direktive 17 came out on top. It’s understating things to say that Sample The drumsand Hold is a studio band. keyboard-guitar-tape outfit never looked comfortable during their hour-long set and their forced enthusiasm combined with their failure to build up any sort of rapport with the audience made them look like a trio of amateurs unsure of what they were doing. To give them their due, they are a relatively new band, having only emerged within the past few months. There were many faults with their performance, not the least of which was an annoying pretentiousness. The presence of a computer accompanying them on stage was flaunted in what seemed an attempt to impress UW’s large C.S. contingent. The use of arty films in some songs just looked like a flagrant attempt to appear to be sophisticated art school graduates. Their reliance on prerecorded tapes was not a good effect either since it looked kind of stupid with this music blaring out of the speakers while the musicians were standing nowhere near their instruments. These shortcomings are really unfortunate because Sample and Hold does manage to crank out some pretty respectable tunes. Their sound is quite danceable if, at times, fairly derivative electrobop. “Come Calling”, a nine-night winner on the Talent Search, is a fine bit of pop that shows the band’s ability to produce some memorable melodies. But whenever Sample and Hold managed to get a good response, they just couldn’t keep it up for the lengthy breaks between songs disrupte.d any momentum they built up.
Direktive 17, a band which has kicked around the club circuit for a couple of years, took over from there and quickly made amends for the op’ening band. Of everything that Sample and Hold doesn’t have as a live band, Diiektive 17 has plenty to spare. Their lead singer, who doubled on trumpet, showed what a difference a good front man can make. Looking like a prototypical, science-fit tion addict , he schizophrenically darted all over the stage making convulsive gestures with manic energy. He is also a gifted, intense sing&- who literally spits into the microphone, making a nice contrast to the impassive vocalizing of Sample and Hold. Direktive 17’s music seems to be strongly influenced by the post-punk sound typified by the early days of The Cure. Guitar, bass, and drums combine in a heavy, surging rhythm, letting the voice carry the melody. The musicianship, especially on the part of the guitarist, was nearly flawless and performed with a deep conviction. Direktive 17 has an impressive array of original tunes, all danceable and meaningful. “Jericho”, the song which did it for them on the Talent Search, is currently available as an independent single and, if there is any justice at all in the music industry, will become a hit. The band obviously felt at home on stage but in spite of their dynamic show, the audience had inexplicably petered out considerably by the middle of their act. They showed that they have a great, sardonic sense of humour, telling jokes like, “Did you hear that Liz Taylor is engaged again? To a guy with money. Can you believe it?” But it went unappreciated. Maybe it’s just that no one likes to have to think on a Saturday night. One hopes that Fed Hall will continue to book talented, indie bands like Breeding Ground, L’etranger, and Direktive 17 instead of concentrating on already well-established bands like Blue Peter or cover bands. These bands have proven that there is a demand for good, cheap entertainment and we should continue to support these artists trying to . make names for themselves.

The ending is quite climactic, combining a lot of fireworks and “the good guy always wins” philosophy.
Above its basic enjoyability, though, there is something troublesome about Missing In Action 2. The newspaper advertisements read “Brutal Violence”, but this is almost an understatement. The excessive violence detracts from :! the picture’s overall worth, and places the movie on the verge of being unfit for public viewing. A close-up shot of a man’s head being blown away speaks for itself of the mentality of the director, yet it is typical of what you will see in this movie. 1
