(IFS seeks improved student ai \ by Chris dinot Imprint staff When they meet today, the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) will be looking for a solid commitment from the new Liberal provincial Treasurer, Robert Nixon, after having emerged emptyhanded from a meeting with the Ontario Minister of Colleges and Universities, Gregory Sorbara, earlier this summer. OFS Chairperson Bernard Drainville plans to press for increased funding of post-secondary educational institutions by the province, including the full value of federal Established Programs Funding transfers. Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) reform will also be high on his list of priorities, which also includes a re-examination of differential fees for visa students and a solution to the college workload problem. These issues form part of the five-point “Student Agenda for Change”, which was adopted at the 1985 Annual General Meeting of the OFS this summer in Guelph. The objectives are: (1) to improve student aid, (2) to stop skyrocketrng costs, (3)to ensure adequate funding f’or adequate quality, (4) to provide students with more access to better housing, and (5). to involve students and the public in the educational planning process.

by Shayla Gunter Imprint staff A number of campus newspapers throughout Canada are boycotting advertisements from companies which have investments in South Africa. Campus Plus, a co-operative organization owned by member solicits national newspapers, ads for its members and many current ads distributed by the organization are being boycotted. Campus Plus is, however, fully honouring any decisions made by its members. Sonny Buskermolen, the liaison for Campus Plus, said that “Campus Plus stays out of the politics. It is up to each paper to make their own decisions.” The papers involved have decided not to run any advertisements paid for by companies that support the South African

economy, as a protest against apartheid (South Africa’s system of racial segregation). Carlton University’s Charlatan is the newspaper with the largest boycott list. Chris Wattie, the editor-in-chief, said that the Charlatan began their boycotts in October of 1984. Staff meetings were held to determine which ads would be refused and their list rose from 0 to 34 in,the last year. The Charlatan’s advertising policy refuses ads from companies which have “direct and substantial investments” in South Africa. Some of the companies being boycotted are; DeBeers Diamonds, Bata Shoes, Rothmans Tobacco, and all of the Canadain chartered banks, excluding the Toronto Dominion Bank. Other university papers

The OSAP campaign is multi-faceted. Its goals include a more comprehensive evaluation of student need, an elimination of the eight-term ceiling on grant eligibility, enhanced job creation programs, and a shift in emphasis from loans to grants. According to Bernard Drainville, accessibihty to post-secondary institutions suffers from the current emphasis on ioans, as many potential students are intimidated by the prospect of being faced with a $15,000 to $20,000 debt load upon graduation. Although grants will cost the government more in the short term, in the long run they will be beneficial as graduates will be able to recirculate their earnings back into the economy instead of using them to pay off their debts. The effort to stop the escalation of the cost of learning consists of pressing the government to limit increases in tuition fees to 5% and, in particular, to legislate limits to the kind of “extra-billing” with which Waterloo students are now painf’ully familiar. The university is charging UW students a computer charge of bt-tween $40 and $100 per term depending on i’acu!ty. Waterloo graduate students have sent a letter protesting these incidental fees to the Minister of Colleges and Universities and are currently awaiting his response. As well as seeking a net dollar increase in overall capitai expenditure funding, the OFS wants a commitment from the Liberals to

are a!so refusing to run Carling O’Keefe’s ads, but the Charlatan staff say they are not because they are not certain that the company’s main stocks are invested in South Africa. When asked why schools are just now recognizing the various companies’ involvement in South Africa, Mr. Wattie, speaking for the Charlatan only said, “Boycotts per se may have been found an unsuccessful or insufficient way of dealing with the problems.” He goes on to say, though, that it would be “hypocritical to run ads by companies with substantial investments in South Africa, and to take money from them, while writing editorials against apartheid .” Some papers such as Calgary’s Gauntlet, have no policy statement about ads from such

aforementioned companies. One of their co-editors, Nitin Manerikar, said that “It’s never been an issue here ... We feel there is a difference between a

pass on the full extent of federal Established Programs Funding (EPF) transfers. The EPF is a method of transferring funds from the federal to the provincial governments for such services as health and post-secondary education. Premier David Peterson said last sprmg that the Csntarlo Conservatrves were “swindhng our umverslties” by failing to pass on EPF grant increases when they were in power, but no commitment has yet been made to correct the situation. In addition to its lobbying efforts at Queen’s Park, the OFS is relying heavily on its local campaigns to implement the Student Agenda For <+‘hangc. As part 01’ that campaign, the OFS will sponsor OSAP appeal clinics on camprises across the province which will have the dual motives of increasing student awareness ot the inadequacies of the student assistance program and of comniling a catalogue of “horror stories” to present as evidence to ;he Liberals that the program does not work. There is also a post-card writing campaign and a student aid task force, which will-act like 2 Federation “Bovey Commission”, except that it wi!l actually listen to students talk about the problems they have had with OSAP and then put together a report with specific recommendations fir reform.

racist ad and an ad by an institution with investments in a country such as South Africa.” Other campus papers partici-

pating in the boycott are ; Trent’s Arthur, University of Ottawa‘s Fulcrum, Regina’s Carillon, Saskatchewan’s Sheaf and U of T’s Gargoyle,

nti-a A group of Kitchener-Waterloo residents who oppose the apartheid regime in South Africa met in Waterloo on Tuesday, August 27 to plan local actions to publicly express their abhorante to apartheid and to press government and businesses eo sever dealings with the racist regime of South Africa. The first action on the K-W AntiApartheid Support Group will be a rally at Sepaker’s Corner (King & Benton) in Kitchener at 12 o’clock noon on Saturday, September 14. This will be fol-

lowed by a walk to the Bata shoe outlet in the King Centre. The Anti-Apartheid Support Group has chosen the Bata shoe store as the target of its protest because of this Canadian company’s unfair labour practices in South Africa. Bata is violating Ottawa’s code of’ conduct f’or Canadian companics in South Africa by keeping a union out of their operations and by paying their workers substantially below the guidelines established by Ottawa. Bata’s

plants are in Kwazulu, a black bantustan, where wages are one fifth of those paid in urban areas of South Africa and approximately 40$@0of what is recommended by Ottawa’s guidelines. At this time, when there is growing pressure for Canadian ldisinvestment from South Africa. Bata plans to open a third factory in Kwazulu. The Support Group sees an example of’ Canadian corporate involvement in South AFrica that helps mainta’in the apartheid system.

Publishers strike out against used books up-to-date, and not because the books are obsolete.” Linda Jenkins, marketing assistant for McGraw-Hill’s College Division, said the rate books are revised depends upon how quickly the .-material changes and how easy it is to get authors to revise their material.

Consumer advocate Ralph Nader -to . ‘-.1,’ address CWon Skyptember2.7 I

L by Peter Stathopulus Imprint staff \-= One of Norbh America% leading consumer advocates, Ralph Nader, is returning this month to Waterloo aftera absence of 13 years. Nader is probably best known for. his book Ungafe at Any Speed, in which he viciously condemned the auto industry for manufacturing uns@c vehicles. However, he is more than a social commentator, he effects real political action. By battling abuses in bureaucracy, big business, and government he has won the respect and admiration of cQn_sumers whil_e earning the disfavour Qf many corporations. Doue Mackinlav. the education coordinator for the Waterloo Publicinterest R&arch Group (WPIRG), took the initiative and invited ,him to U W to spea,! abbut the politico-economic problems of society and some possible solutions. The main way in which Nader effects action is by increasing publicawareness. He has

started a network of over 200 action groups across ths US and Canada. WPIRG was founded largely as a‘result of Nader’s visit 13 years ago. He wanted students ti, organize-an alternative research group which would promote the interest of the public and combine research with action on both the social and academic levels. Bringing Nader hick will be a .very important step in reminding students what WPIRG- stands for. Nader is shriving to teach. consumers tq demand changes within their own jurisdictions. In ,this way, they may gain more<rights as well as a better, safer, society. - ’ He strongly advises active citizenship, and relating studies to 1 relevant social issues. R&ph Nader will be lecturing at the Humanities Theatre.on Sept. 25 at 8:00 pm. Tickets for this event are $3.00 for non-wage earners and $5.00 foryage-earners, and areavailable at the WPIRG office (CC 2’17A) and the Humanities Thea& box office.

Let us respond to Brigitte’s death with energy, not indifference! Brigitte Bouckaert was a second year biology student and a residencedon at WLUwhen she was killed last Friday. She was crushed beneath a bus while trying to restrain the crowd at a freshman orientation pub night. “A stupid death, a waste of Iife,“said Sgt. Steve Calma of Waterloo Regional Police. And, really, is there any other way to view it? We could ask, Who is responsible? And that question will be asked by the board of inquiry which inevitably will be set up to examine, report on, and make recommendations regarding frosh orientation. But it was not a question asked at the memorial service held on Sunday and attended by the dons at WLU. They simply remembered Brigitte, celebrated her life, lamented her death, and wept. Because the death of Brigitte Bouckaert was an accident, it just happened; no one was responsible. Like those teenagers’ deaths at “The Who” concert a few years ago, Brigitte Bouckaert’s death was a freak event. I remember Arthur Koestler telling of an experience he once had back in the thirties at the Communist Writers’ conference in Paris. Speaker after speaker extolled the virtues of the socialist state: how disease >would be stamped out, injustice overcome, and happiness prevail as human beings shared with one another. Then someone rose to ask, “What about the man who is run over by a streetcar?” There was silence and then, finally, the only answer was that in the perfect socialist state there would be no accidents.

Brigitte Bouckaert’s death. There are, it seems to me, two legitimate ways of responding with emotional and intellectual integrity to the obscene fact of Brigitte Bouckaert’s death. One is the humanist, the other the Christian response. Swiss playwright Friedrich Currenmatt at age 31 wrote a story entitled “Color”. At the end of it he asked, “What do you do when death stares you in the face?” He answered: “Nothing. God lets us fall and so we tumble into his arms.” Revising that story in 1978 at age 57, the playwright asked the same question, and left for an answer only the one word, “Nothing.” He explains, “I have become an existentialist, and I have become sad.” That is the humanist response - honest, and filled with feeling. The Christian response is the resurrection. Here is The Book of Wisdom, chapter 4: Length of days is not what makes age honorable nor number of years the true measure of life; understanding, this is man’s grey hairs, untarnished life, this is ripe old age. [She] has sought to please God, so God has loved [her]... Coming to perfection in so short a while, [she] achieved long life; [Her] soul being pleasing to the Lord, he has taken [her] quickly . . . However you respond to death, and to this death in partitular - whether with sadness or resoluteness, with anger or resignation - let it be with energy, not indifference.

But there are accidents - freakish ones, stupid ones, tragic ones, sometimes fatal ones - and societies have to have ways of dealing with death. The universtiy communities of Waterloo and WLU are groping for a way to deal with

Physic at the expense o real beaut Universities should challenge the traditional as a matter of course. Lately, some members of UW have questioned the integrity of a university that promotes women in nontraditional disciplines and yet sanctimoniously hosts a beauty pageant at the Humanities Theatre. ’ An observer would assume the university administration is feigning its commitment to women on this campus. After an increase in pressure from the media, the public and some high-powered members of the political community against beauty pageants held at UW, it would be political suicide if UW President Dr. Wright et. al. would choose to continue to host such a lewd event. It appears likely that the 1986 K-W Oktoberfest Beauty Pageant will be held elsewhere. Can the group opposing the beauty pageant claim victory? Partially, yes. The UW Women’s Centre and the Federation of Students launched an effective media blitz and petition attempting to compel the organizers of the pageant to eventually move the location. It will prove successful. Yet, there is only a partial triumph here as the K-W Oktoberfest Beauty Pageant will continue and young women will continue to flaunt across the stage in all their tasteless regalia.

There is a fundamental wrong in judging or being judged on one’s outward beauty. There appears to be consensus on this thought and yet we, as a society, continue to endorse sex role stereotyping. It would be simple to profess that we should ban all beauty pageants, but that would be wrong as well. As universities are at the forefront of change, we should be setting examples and making strides for the rest of the country to emulate. When the beauty pageant leaves the UW campus we will make a statement to others, a slatement which is indeed long overdue. As members of a university, we should begin at the grass-roots level and educate young children to recognize sexism as a negative force. We should be conscious of sex role stereotyping in advertising and other media. Physical beauty should have only minimal importance in our lives and we should firstly strive for beauty of spirit and mind for both women and men. Being in a university setting we can apply these ideals to benefit not simply ourselves, but those unfortunate others who insist on heightening physical beauty at the expense of real beauty. Carol

women to take back the night by’ lulie George

“The UW Women’s Centre of the Federation of Students will be staging a Take Back The Night march on September 13 at 8:00 pm. to “reclaim the streets for women.” “Take back the night” has been the rallying cry for many marches held by women to protest the violence they suffer at the hands of men, and that slogah will again be heard at UW of September 13. The first time a Take Back The Night march was held under that name was in 1978 in San Francisco. At that time, 5,000 women from 30 states marched down strip row, protesting the pornography and violence that make our lives as women so dangerous. Andrea Dworkin, in her address to the marchers that night said, “This march is a symbolic statement of our commitment to stopping the tide of violence against women in all arenas, and of our demand that the perpetrators of such violence from rapists to batterers to pornographers - be held responsible for their actions and made to change.” That tide of violence against women is alive and well in Canada. Canadian studies on rape, sexual assault, wife battering, and

incest consistently support Dworkin’s point: that violence against women is pervasive and common. Findings like: one in ten wives is.battered by her husband; one in 17 women is raped, and one in five women sexually assaulted during her lifetime attest to this fact: This kind of violence affects far more women‘than those directly involved in the assaults, by st’ealing their freedom of movement. Women are afraid to go out alone at night. The most frequent answer to the question “What could you do as a man that you cannot do as a woman?” is walk alone in the dark without worrying about personal safety. On a more day-to-day basis, the Women’s Centre tries to match women up with other women who are walking in the same direction after their night classes, but one night a year women claim the night for their own. We march as a group through the areas that are the most dangerous for women walking home, to publicize the fact that we cannot walk in those areas by ourselves .without putting ourselves in danger. But Take Back The Night marches are more than a protest. They are a celebration of women’s power to affect change when they work together. Take Back The Night marches are a way of looking forward to the day when we can walk alone at night without worrying for our personal safety. The march is for women only. The principal reason for this is that women need to experience their own power, their ability-to walk at night without the protective custody of men. For those men who wish to do sqmething about violence against women, show your support by providing child care services in CC 113 so that moihers can march. You can also help by ensuring that your women friends do not have to walk alone on other nights. For the women who wish to participate, we will be rallying in the Campus Centre Rm. 113 at 8:00 pm. We will leave the Campus Centre promptly at 8:30 and go though the campus tp University Ave. From there we will travel through Waterloo Park, up Erb Street to King, down King to Central, and along Albert to Wilfrid Laurier University. We will return to the University of * Waterloo for a post-march celebration at the Grad Club. For women who cannot make the rallying point, you are titilcome to join us anywhere along the route. Marchers should tiear lightcoloured clothing and bring a flashlight if they have one. For more information, contact Janet Bate at the Women’s Centre, CC 150-B, 885-1211. ext. 3457.

[Sex Crimes on Campus?1 by Doug Thompson

I

Did they really have to put condoms in the Frosh orientation kits? Although the arguments for the move are obvious, I find it distinctly disquieting that the Federation should add its own “peer pressure” to the already substantial social and media persuasion which constantly tells us “sex is fun, sex is neat, there’s no reason not to, and with this device, sex is safe!“And, as this free distribution of birth control demonstrates, “everybody else is doing it - aren’t they?” Of course, they’re not. While those of US who don’t are often considered “repressed”, experience has shown this observer that quite the opposite is the case. When one has chosen limits one knows to be emotionally as well as physically safe, tremendous and certain freedom results within them. Unfortunately like most acts of irresponsibility, sexual irresponsibility rrot only is fun, but the negative side effects are often less than immediately obvious to the inexperienced. Psychologist Jesse Lair asks an important question,“If sex is so good, how come it hurts so much?” Lair argues that sex is much more than a physical act. As we open our bodies to one another, we are also opening our deepest selves. To open one’s self at such a deep level, and then experience rejection, or even just simple indifference, delivers a cruel psychic blow. The self, injured and hurting, withdraws. The result is a spiritual hardening, and progressively greater difficulty in ever opening fully to another again. What modern psychology is beginuing to tell us has been known by sages and wise men since the dawn-of history. There is no culture which lasted long enough or de\?reloped far enough to leave a record which has not, in its ‘religious and wisdom literature, argued the same point in most emphatic terms.

. simple stereotypes\ by ‘Mike Loh

Before going on to anything else, I should say a bit about this . coIumn. Although headed ‘East to West’, I’d rather see it as some observations and views made by a Malaysian student about life on campus and Canada, referring to the more than three years I have been here. I hope to touch on many areas of interest to me, whether petty personal thoughts or current issues. Orientation week was sure busy for some last week I came bn campus three or four times, completing my registration and course selection, while squeezing my moving in between. It’s sure nice to be back again. Although I don’t understand it, I actually missed the campus during the second week of my stay in Toronto during the holidays. That sure calls for some deeper analysis. Anyway, back to orientation. Those most visible engineers certainly did and will, believe me, make their presence c&stantJy appar6nt to the rez8 of us. They marched through campus topped in yellow hats booing down everything from the pop machines to the Student Awards sign at Needles Hall. The Mathies were less spirited this year, and except for the huge one on M G C, pink ties were a rarity compared to the showing last year. They probably have something up their sleeves - hope it’s not a Mathies Band. And the rest of the frosh tried to look seasoned, but really, asking where Fed Hall is was a dead giveaway. Foreign students tend to have a slightly different set of things to get adjusted to. Some worry about not meeting their own kind, some wony about not knowing anybody other than their own kind. Then there is the problem of fitting in, mostly due to the inability to join the-flow of conversation because of language and cultural differences. It is surprising just how unfamiliar some foreign’ students are about the life of young-Canadians, just because they never bothered to find out and prefer to believe whatever they heard from others about it. I guess the possibility of this remaining so will persist as long as there is a group of the same ethnic origin to cater to needs fortfriendship and company. For those who wantto get to know foreign students, the first thing to do is shed whatever stereotyping you have been dwelling in and start afresh. Maybe some ot your expectations about their nature ‘will be fulfilled but the resulting friendship will mean a lot more if you treat them individually. Finally, to certain groups of f&w students who tend to raise their voices in huge lecture halls-(l will not name names), please discontinue this practice. It can be more than embarassing for less vocally active peers, especially if they are of the same ethnic group. I speak from a number of bizarre experiences. Be sympathetic, at least on this one. Sex, which at its best, represents a real spiritual as well as physical union between two souls, at its worst can severely impair a person’s cgpacity for deep emotional, spirituai and psychic union with another in the future. Without the deepest commitment to your partner, it is almost impossible to avoid hurtin and being hurt. People just happen to be.made that way. .In t f-lis culture which emphasizes the superficial at the expense or the underlying reality so much, it is not surprising to find this trivialization of sex in our era. The point arrives where many people cannot even admit that there is something deeper to it. I cannot help but wonder if, in the name of short term assistance for others, The Federation’s free condoms help promote much greater long term damage - the.trivialization of ourselves and each other. A Christian can only understand that as sin. As the alcohol-awareness program and the anti-beauty-pageant lobby are at pains to point out, social and peer pressure has a pervasive and powerful influence on the attitudes of many. The illusion (or, if you prefer, lie) is being propagated that everybody does it. Even if that were true, that is not, in itself, a justification. But it’s not true, and the Federation might discharge its responsibilities much better by educating students about the big issues rather than protecting them from the small ones.

OTTAWA (CUP) -- College-and university students are risking brain hemorrhages and heart, failure during exam time .bv gobbling a stimulant .which is .easy to buy on the street or ovef the counter in drug stores. ’ Phenylpropanolamine or PPA is o,ne of several chemicals found in Black Beauties, and is also used in Contac.C, Coricidin, Sinutab and other decongestants. The’drug shrinks blood vessels in the nose and elsewhere, eliminating congestion and raising blood pressure. Dr. Bryan Young, a neurologist at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario thinks the drug and another pseudo-ephedrine, are the cause of serious brain haemorrhages in four of his young patients in the past year. The patients included a high school student and a university student. Young, also an ‘assistant professor at the University of’western Ontario, said Black Beauties causkd the problem in a&four cases. But Young is worried university students taking large doses of cold medicines to stay awake could also have problems. London pharmacists say cold remedy sales skyrocket at exam time. The drug is especially dangerous in quick release forms of the medicine and tablets, which the blood stream absorbs much more quickly than the capsules, Young said. In a recent U. S. -experiment, 50 healthy medical-students each took 50 mg of PPA. Two developed dangerously high blood pressure and needed emergency medical attention. Antihistamines like Ornade, Ornex and Dimatab come,in sustained release capsules. Others like coricidin are tablets containing _ 25 mg of PPA. Suggested maximum dosage-is three a day. Sinuvit recommends taking one tablet every four hours. Each tablet contains 25 mg of PPA. “Th* ma:;imum you ‘would be exposed to is -about 150 mg a day,” said Jean Sattar, with public relations at Health and Welfare Canada. “That drug is very available,” Young said. “We’ve seen many .i ’

more problems with this than with harder drugs because it’s s I available.” Bec,ause,the drug is not illegal, the RCMP are unable. to co& it. “Kids know it’s not illegal,” said Corporal Douglas Wadstein 4 the London RCMP. “People walk around with acouple of hundre (Black Beauties) in their Docket.” Wadstein said that drug can only be stopped at the border. “It not scheduled as a control drug t if a shipment comes in with dosage that is not appropriate, the-government will‘seize-it un$ federal food and drug laws,” he said. .. Canadian dealers buy Black Beauties by the hundreds from U.! mail order companies and smuggle them into Canada. They .a] easy to get on most university campuses ata exam time. Robert Armstrong, assistant director of non-prescription brul at Health and Welfare Canada in Ottawa, is not overly sworrie about PPA abuse. “lt’s’legally used in cold remedies/” he said. “The instructions are on the label,” Armstrong saic “There’s nothing else we can do if people are stupid enough t i ignore them.” He insisted, however, that PPA as found in Black Beauties, is nc legal.. “R’s a drug and you cannot market a drug unless you- have drug Identification number,” Armstrong said. “We have not given, a number. Armstrong admitted the drug was dangerous. “1 have seen person shake for six hours after taking one cold tablet,” he saic But he said that government discourages listing side effects c drugs on labels, because they buy the drug to get the side effect: Armstrong said PPA was obviously dangerous to those with hig blood pressure, but Young said he could not yet.tell what cause certain people to have brain hemorrhages after using the drug The KCM P m London has appliedto its central office in Toront for mdney to print 5 copies of a Black Beauty and PPA warnin poster.

Myths Facts MYTESabJDFACTS... the concept of beauty

and some pageants

BEAUTY OF,

reasoMtoquwtion

MYTH #l - Beauty pageants are a fine way to overcome shyness, develop self-confidence ... FACT . . . Wrong! Webster’s dictionary defines confidence as “a reliance on one’s own abilities . . . belief in one’s own competency.” Parading her body in front of a large number of strang.ers, for theirjudginent, forces a woman to accept her worth-in terms of how well her physique measures up to the latest standard. What does this have to do with her competency? Her abilities? If competency and ability exist (let alone improve) after age 25, why are older contestants not accepted? If you want to work on self-confidence or overcoming shyness, how about taking up gymnastics, public speaking, soccer, music lessons, hockey, etc., etc. . . ? MYTH W - Beauty pageants are a way to meet other people, especially ‘important’ people such as local dignitaries and politicians. FACT. . . Let’s face it, who’s going to take you seriously? The males will likely be gawking and smirking (after all, that’s what you’re there for, to be looked at) . well, women in a position of power and the women.. are not like to be able to relate or to accord you much respect. If you (or your daughter, sister, lover) reallywant to meet people, you could join a night class, WPIRG, Amnesty International, a religious group, a women’s group, an organized sport, or go travelling. Why not start peeling away our learned layers of aggressiveness and competitiveness? Don’t compete with other women on the basis of your ephemeral looks for the approval of men. Learn to talk, share, support.. . what better way is there to make friends? m #3 - Beauty pageants are a harmless way to make some money. IPACT ... What a woman does with her body is her own business, provided her actions harm no one else. However, pageants hurt all women by perpetuating the image of the following stereotypes: woman-as-commodity woman-as-dependent-upon-male-approval-forher-well-being-and-loving-it women-as-pleasant (read Non-threatening) plaything woman-whose-desires-needs-and-aspirations-aresubject-to-those-of-men’s

SEX

06JECTF

Stereotypes like these confront us many times in life and limit opportunities to achieve our potential, and our freedom to run our lives as we please. These stereotypes also limit the potential and freedom of men not economically, or socially, but emotionally and creatively. someone who, no matter how tired they are, how long they’ve been standing on their feet in high heels, or how much they detest the person they must talk to, can still chatter about generalities in a pleasing manner. Why not develop some characteristics and skills that will make you more money and provide you with personal satisfaction for longer than a cultivated ‘beauty’? Sports and peace delegations are examples of two very dissimilar activities which allow one to re-

present

one’s comrnu&y.

There are obviously lots of other ways to make money, especially if one has developed skills considered ‘non-traditional’ for a woman! v #4 - Beauty pageants allowyouthe honour of representing your community .. FACT.. . What kind of honour is it to be a live mascot who is trotted out every time a dignitary has to be entertained, or a seat on a float has to have a pretty butt in it? Kind of reminds one of a 4-H show doesn’t it. A pageant winner. performs roughly the same duties as what is known inthe modelling trade as a “hostess’;

the Beauty

Pageant

A- “Have you, signed the petition for getting the Oktoberfest Beauty Pageant off campus?” m- “@TINA hyd + .~bfj~~*--h~~a;t-+~ a-- - --- the Women s Centre got tlus together. Beau&p&e&& are a barbaric ritual.” C- ‘This has been a historic year for Canadian women - we’ve got the Charter of Rights and Freedoms guaranteeing women as persons with equal status and then the international women’s conference in Nairobi. Along comes autumn and wham0 - beauty pageants again! Such a regressive practice!” A- “As women begin to dismantle the false images given to them in this society it is begrudging to see that a university would condone beauty pageants. And this university does not have a very good record for its encouragement and advancement of women. (Waterloo has the lowest percentage of female faculty in Ontario) So it could be only in its best interests to have it removed” B- “Men’s images of women are constructed so rationalize their do minant position Women been portrayed as objects - ‘the wife’, ‘my mom’, servant’. Wnen she steps out of this passive role don’t quite know what to do. So beauty pageants way of saying they are putting us in our place, judged, to be displayed for men”

as to have ‘the men are a to be

C-“How can any person rationalize a beauty pageant? How can they be so blatant with discrimination? Females between the ages of 16 and 25 and of virginal status - stereotypical sexually desirable women! Oh, thev do throw in talent don’t they? If I remember copTBct;ly, it was the feminists of the 60’s who protested enougth to make them add this criteria.” A- “Your memory is correct. I have a friend who was a contestant for Miss Canada in 1967 and she had no talents but was reading Shakespeare at the time and they instructed her to memorize a few lines and that would be talent enough I think they have the age requirement so they can get the women before they become wise to their exploitation And so far our educational system does not allow the females to know anything of their own culture and their oppression I mean that would be detrimental to the patriarchy!” C- “I find it interesting that those who like these contests can’t seem to see how the contestants are sex objects. If the contestants could hear the comments in the audience I’m sure they would have second

thoughts about being there. You know, the kind of words we hear all our lives: ‘would you look at that’, ‘look at the tits on that’, ‘nice ass on that one’, ‘I wonder if that would be good in bed. Assembly line passions is all it is!” B- “They are paraded and rated like ad&~&&J&@ --au vvuxr&?$do~&%%.<o‘up~e of w&s ago a race horse went for a few million dollars. Ugh, how degrading!” C- “This money factor is an interesting point. It At the shows the evolution of the pageant curcuit. beginnMg women were selected for their beauty and they thought it an honour. Now, at least in part, the women who go into these things do it as a job. They p&y the pageant circuit to make money. So in this way it’s an irony that the men think they can control and judge where the women are using them as agents for profit. Ha, ha, ha, - what a hoot.” A- “But that in no way justifies the practice nor their participation By entering a beauty pageant they are perpetuating the role of women as sex objects. The very images that I talked about earlier that are slowly being dismantled are being built up again by these pageants! B- “There is no rationalization for beauty pageants. They are using women as human mascots. There is also another kinky angle that proves this. The contestants are from all over North America. I’m sure they know nothing about Oktoberfest, let alone being Canadian. C- “Yes, you are right. It makes me sac, angry and fPustrate& They are our sisters and when they are being judged so too are we, when they are raped, so too are we, when they are beaten so too are we.” B- “I borrowed a book from the Women’s Centre called The Anatomy of Freedom by Robin Morgan. I found a poem in it that I’d like to share with you”

I am strong, but not brutal. I am gentle, but not weak I am eternal, and newly born. I am totally alive, and dying each second. I am the weeping one who chooses to laugh I am the silence, and the song. ’ I am the suffering of beauty. I am beauty itself. I am what you call freedom that has no name. Something in me has always existed Something in me will never cease to exist. I am my own holy power. 1amwhat1am

, by Fritz and Fritz Greetings music lovers - here’be the first of what hopefully will be on ongoing series of articles reviewing pnd photographing the UW music scene., Before launching into a review of the free concert offering of Monday the 9th, we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and our planned “approach” to this and future writings. The Brothers Fritz are indeed a brother “team”, I write and he -takes the photos, except when I get my hands on the camera or when he provides much needed creative prose. Monday, September 9 broudht us Scott Merritt, Sheer Energy and Murray McLauchlan. Originally planned as an outdoor show on Village Green, it was moved inside to Fed Hall on account of impending rain-. The show opened on time led off by Scott Merritt followed by Sheer Energy and closing with Murry McLauchlan. ‘Scott Merritt is a home-grown (Brantford, he said), innovative performer of the modern folk music genre; this “pigeonhole” includes the likes of Jane Sibbery and- the non-commercial side of Bruce Cockburn. Scott has enjoyed considerable success and-recognition in the last year. Unfortunately this show was very disappointing, not only for me, a first time Merritt listener, but also for a lady friend who has seen him four or five times. The main reason was the sound - it was too loud. This made his lyrics,.a key part of his music, undistinguishable and frustrating to listen to. The sound man was to blame I believe for disrupting that important iink between performers and audience. He made a number of gaffs,‘including one burst of feedback that made even the subdued ‘bass player grimmace. b The first half of ‘Scott’s performance was sadly lacking in terms of changes in tempo - it all sounded similar a&l without, clear lyrics or an impresssive stage show, the show came over as boring and applause from a traditionally uptight and conservative Waterloo audience was perfunctory at best.

Sheer Energy is a truly home grown accapella (voices only) Qroupconsisting of four present. and ex. UW students. They were a breath of fresh air after ‘Merritt - launching into an old Nylons’ favourite without even the courtesv-of a sound check

they feellike need an audience t&y some-new material on. Getting high on an audienceis an obvious joy and they’are worth seeing for their energy, enthusiasm and voices. Also they’ll give-you some idea--what the Nylons are about if vou’v;

Merritt plays a number of different instruments during his performance including mandolin, acoustic guitar, mountain dulcimar and electric guitar. The variety of soundis interesting but his command of each instrument is basic. He didn’t show us ’ -, anything very complicated. His voice has a nice tone and his lead-ins were good but the build-up was in vain due to the fact that the finale, the song and _ \ its lyrics, could not be heard clearly.

Sounds ranged from . traditional to experimental. and although this reviewer was &rimpressed by this performance, 1Merritt fans have assured me that with available lyrics and a receptive crowd, Scott is worth seeing again.

The headliner of Monday’s show, Murray McLduchlan, was . .-’ *wholly Murray. Unfortunately, for Murray and the audience, it was the?end of frosh week, the start of school and it was a daytime show. An upbeat, rowdy act waS called for, no-t a mellow folkman. Murray played by himself either on piano or on guitar’(sometimes with harmonica). .He plays songs that are about people; about Canada and about life - the lyrics are gopd and they were clear. His command ofhis instruments is good and his stage presence is simple, open and friendly - too bad he .was the wrong performer for that day or was it the wrong.day for that / Performer? Some found the show slow,‘. yawn-inducing, even boring. They were the hyped ones. Murray fans and mellow folky types lapped it up despite the fact that it should have been outside to match his style or at least in the evening when he could have 1 I been spot1ightedMurray hasan excellent voice, strong and clear: He can bring a smile to your face and makes you believe in genuine,clean wholesome people, especially Canadian people. -_

Independent.

by Paul Done . Imprint staff Revivalism has never been one of the more pleasant pop phenomena, and in the last few years ‘we have been subjected to mod, ska and rockabilly revivals. The current minimalist and soul revivals are only slightly more palatable than previous revivals due ,, to the fact that there are some

genuinely talented bands among- the crop of revivalists. The debut E.P. by The Sharp Set, a Toronto soul/pop band, demonstrates that they fall into the category of the genuinely talented bands. Though their heart is firmly in the mid - 60’s, the three songs show genuine spark and songwriting talent. Backed up by te 20thCentury Rebels’ horn section, the influences are all here: Stax, Motown, and James Brown. Listen close and you can hear them all. The

strongest

and

most

;

danceable track on the record is “The Temptation”, built upon a guitar riff which is b,razenly lifted from James Brown. The other two songs are good soul flavoured dance-pop which is well played and arranged. This record is testament to the fact that Canada’s independent music scene is alive and offers a welcome change from the mediocrity of Canada’s popular music scene. Rumour has it that The Sharp Set are scorchingly hot live so look for a possible regional . date soon

by Doug Tait Imprint staff Anyone who has seep David Wilcox live wil be happy to know the bug-eyed guitarist has released a “best of” album. For those people who’ve never seen him this is

a great album to get to know his music by, since it contains Wicox’s best material. Wilcox writes straight nonon-sense rock and roll - no deep lyrics here. Just a driving bass and Wilcox’s wailing guitar. His songs deal with the usual things associated with rock and roll. .There’s sex ("Hot; Hot Papa”, “The Grind”, “My Eyes Keep Me in Trouble”), rebellion (“Bad Apple”, “Bad Reputation”)

and, of course, drugs (“R&rboat .Fantasy”). There’s also some bopin’ tunes that make you want to get off your ass and dance (“Do the Bearcat”, “Hypnotizin’ Boogie”, “Downtown Came Uptown”). - The album also contains two previously unreleased songs which were recorded in You MisEngland, “When treat Her” and “Blood Money”. Two good cuts which

follow the distinctive sound.

It’s hard to dislike David ’ Wilcox no matter what your taste in music is. The man can play a mean guitar and’ has a good voice to accompany his music. -This is the kind of album ,. you put on when the party is starting to die.

“The Hammond Song” is nothing short of beautiful. This is also one of the most inoffensive albums ‘I’ve heard. The songs are neatly composed and arranged to generate a _ relaxed atmosphere., This they do. The tracks even the upbeat ones, seem to sedate -the listener, so much so that some of the more probing lyrics might get overlooked, given the induced mellowness, (“. ; . SO this is evolution, and -animals do as they’re told/they make

their contribution, then we go and swallow them whole . . . “) This from “Cruel Circus ” might easily be heard but not digested upon first listen. This album also has a strong 60’s feel to it. The rhythmic blend of bass and light percussion, as well as the use of organ, suggest the San Francisco/New York sounds of years gone by - softer shades of Velvet Underground and Doors. Similarly, “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby” touches on the early

British “Merseybeat” sound. In the general consistency of Virgins and Philistines, several high points do emerge. Worthy of note is Terry Hall’s nearly flawless vocals. Another peak is Katrina Philips’ guest vocals on “Thinking of You.” It was also refreshing to hear the soft jazz touch on the title track. It is rather difficult to pigeonhole this album. Virgins and Philistines is part folkpop, part beat. Always melodic and likeable. And always smooth.

West

India Company Ava Maria

Polygram

8-

by Paul Done Imprint staff

As is so often the case with so-called experimental records, the West India Company EP Ava Maria promises far more than it actually delivers. The West India company consisgs of the three members of Blancmange; Neil’ Arthur, Stephen Luscombe and Pandit Dinesh. They are augmented by Vince Clarke (ex-Depeche Mode, ex-Yazoo, ex-Assembly) and feature artist Asha Bhosle, an authentic Indian singer on lead vocals. ’ On listening to the record, it seems that the intent of the group was to merge the West-

ern, synthesiser-oriented sound of Mr. Clarke and Blancmange with the Eastern I sound of Asha Bhosle’s sing, ing. Assumipg that this was . the intent, the record falls down in ttio important areas. First, the music is generally uninspired and shows none of the inventiveness or ingenuity of the members’ more notable work. The secorid fault which occurs is Ms. Bhosle’s trouble with English phrasing. This eliminates any opportunity we may have to hear her true vocal abilities. The only track of the four contained on the iecord which merits a second listening is the title track. Even this song is no better than an average dance track. The result of this musical endeavour is a record which may be called, at best, inoffen-,. sive.

LONELINESS

enius / MEMORIES

by Adams Stevens Imprint staff How could one describe Real Genius? It is one of thdse movies about university life with a twist - all the jerks are geniuses. Now, that may be just a little cruel. In fact it really wasn’t about university life at all. It was about a secret weapon for a secret military crew. There was a love story tied in as well, and the ingenuity in the plot when it was reaching the climax . . . again, I don’t know how to describe how exhilerating it was.(sic). Real Genius is filled with lousy characters, of which

maybe one or two pull off convincing performances. Those that start off as being very weird and interesting even lose their appeal by the end, The plot is so ridiculous that no one over 15 should be able to get involved with it. Even the secret weapon isn’t even such a glorified piece of machinery. Yes, the star of the movie is cute, and there was a funny point made about tape recorders in the classroom, but save your money, save your time, don’t go to see Real Genius. The movie lacks talent, artistic value, and any kind of interest that one would have in life.

Tarnished in thought and forever fading, Yet never quite diminished, An endless stroll past familiar places, Or march to the beat of drums, And scented bme2e; Wafting o&y through private fields,

Causing fimb8 to sway, Perbps tu crack, And calourles byes to rtistie,

It was a beautiful sunny day The sky was as blue as the sea I drove-leisurely through the countryside Stopping to take pictures along the way I was feeling rather lost and I needed a drink I stopped at the next town. A little town, but eerie as Hell The sun never shcrne here And the sky was never blue Loneliness the sign s&d, pop&&on very few Michael James Jeren&& Kirby TrnT

Of trees which now can grow no more. Like pounding tjyaters a$ roaring rivers, Asi tbiy sfuw and fose theix speed, El&ins genflg into silent streams, Yet finding not their way ta sea. Planted as sttch in the abyss of time, And watered by rains of reminisce, These seedfings of days long gone by, Cannot flower in fragrance and flourish, But somehow take root and live.

In the humid blaze of Saturday September 7, Waterloo went down to Ottawa’sCarleton squad,,managing only seven points to Carleton’s 25 in pre-season action at Seagram Stadium. In the beginning of‘ the second quarter, quarterback ‘l’ony lantorno made a soaring pass to receiver Bob Barnard who scored the touchdown. Peter Barndt added the-convert to give the Warriors a seven point lead.

If statistics tell no lies, Waterloo should have beenblown However, life-has its blessings. A member of Carletbn’s playoff from last year, Clark Oliver was out with a knee injury, quarterback star Cam Collins played for only the first half. The Carleton% offense consisted of second and third strings.

Carleton began their road to victory with a missed field goal attempt halfway through the second quarter. The mighty Ravens then followed up with a quick touchdown and conversion, putting them in the lead by one point. Carleton led at the half 15-7. The second half was messy, with the Warriors seemingly suffering injuries every third or fourth play while Carleton’s kick returners couldn’t pick up anything without first letting it “bounce one or five times. The Ravens managed to. pick up 17 more points, neverthe-

away. squad while rest of

Ending with three notes of optimism. 1) Tonly Iantorno shows some imirovement over his rookie year. 2) Bob Barnard, who seemed to be the only bright spot for Waterloo in Saturday’s game by ctitching 13 passes, shows great promise for future games. 3) Waterloo never has to play Carlton in a real game. Now, if the Warriors could ‘keep from getting injured...

getting on a winning track.

UW to’ host cinternational meet Canada’s top intercollegiate squash players will meet head to head, in Waterloo, during the first weekend of October. The occasion is the first Capadian Intercollegiate Squash Championships, hosted by the Unviersity of Waterloo, October 3-6. The event will feature the top half-dozen Canadian university six-man squash teams, as well as a father-son exhibition “grudge” match between two men who dominated the sport of squash on both sides of the Atlantic for decades - Hashim And Sharif Kahn. Spectators will have a spectacular view of a game usually walled in on three sides. The event will be staged on Federation Hall’s dance floor in the $100,000 glass walled touring court built by Playcon Recreational Equipment Ltd., of Kitchener. This court, owned by the World Professional Squash Association, is used in many professional events incIu.ding the Xerox Canadian Open, and features three glass walls - only the end wall is .opaque - thus multiplying the number of excellent spectator seats from a few hundred to thotisands. -The championships, headed by R.G.R. (Barney) Lawrence, Q.C., (UW’s Squash Coach) are operated on an invitational basis, with the best Canadian university squash teams invited to participate.

1 STUDENT DISCOUNTS

Canadian intercollegiate squash squads are among the top teams in North America. Squash is one of a few sports in which Canada has held its own in international competition. The current U.S.

Intercollegiate Champion is the University of Toronto’s Paul Deratney. That title has been held by a Canadian in six of the past eleven seasons. The University of Western Ontario has twice won the North American intercollegiate championship. Teams from Western and Toronto will participate in the Waterloo meet. Also participating will be UW’s squash team that has rapidly improved its place in Canadian Intercollegiate standings. The home team has been ranked third in the past two seasons. With the return of the top three players from last year’s squad, observers are predicting that this could be the year that Waterloo takes top honours. The Canadian Intercollegiate tournament will offer the opportunity to do so on home court. A highlight of the tournament will be the exhibition match between two of the legendary names in squash - Hashim Kahn, winner of the British Open seven times, the U. S. Open three times and the Canadian Open three times; and his son, Sharif Kahn, 1Ztime North American Open ‘Champion. ’ A recent article in a major American magazine termed squash, “a game whose time has come.” There are over 600,000 squash players in North America, and southern Ontario is acknowledged to be a significant seedbed of this “explosion”. The first Canadian Intercollegiate Squash Championships will focus international attention on Waterloo. Major sponsor of the event is Genesta Manufacturing Ltd., of Guelph.

It is fitting indeed that the words of a Renaissance artist should describe so aptly an ancient sport that is enjoying a rebirth in Canada. It has always been the creative cultivators who have inspired the growth of this reflective game, and so it is with UW’s new Maitre d’/arme, Dr. Mareo D’Alerta. His ideas and opinions help form part of his teaching of the sport of fencing, both as a recreational pastime and as an elegant combative event. He is a fifth generation fencer whose family’s.origin is Florence, Italy. He achieved the title of fencing master in 1971 through the American Fencing Association, and quickly became, through his fencing organization (La Sala de Armas D’Alerta), a prominent coach of new and advanced fencers. Dr. D’Alerta was also honoured at Los Angeles in 1984 when he was chosen as one of the coaches of the U.S. Olympic Fencing Team. His high degree of expertise and calibre of coaching has not detracted from his conception of fencing as a sport for everyone, “Fencing most importantly, develops qualifies which are essential to modern day life: the ability to concentrate, make decisions rapidly (due to highly developed fencing strategies), and, of course, creativity. The matches themselves are so very interesting, you forget how much mental and physical energy is involved.

His inevitable question on a first encounter is “Do you know what is l’escrime (the fince)?” (Naturally one’s mind, on such a direct demand, avoids the involved complex answer, and conjures up images of white pickets, wooden boards, a hammer and nails.) His answer is as direct, and relates to the semantics of the sport, “Imagine - a pair of clashing swords, a pair of bodies making cat-like or explosive moves, a pair of minds striking for the same and completely opposite aims - expressed in an absolutely safe and natural form. This is l’escrime.” “The beginner need not desire any more than to fence. It is this desire that motivates one to accomplish his goals, whatever they may be,” says Dr. D’Alerta. From observing his teaching style, it is apparent that his skill is combined with a degree of sensitivity to,the needs of each one of his fencers. He understands their strengths and develops them. He also understands mistakes made, and corrects them without the individual bering aware. Above all, he encourages thinking; “The game is made fluid by thought. Thinking about your actions, and your opponent’s ability to counter them is the essence of controlling the fence. But any usual approach of thinking will not work here. It is FENCING. A sport that is as’old as mankind. . . yet fresh, new, and exciting. So, it is with great pleasure that UW fencing Club welcomes Dr. D’Alerta .as the new Maitre d’Arme. Equally, we invite and welcome all those interested in fencing to come and fence. Come and listen to the clashing of blades, bresthe the air of history, plunge into the atmosphere of a delicate and furious pastime. On Guard!

21 Imprint,

ow to by Mike O’Driscoll Look, I hate to start off this article on a bad note, but somebody has to say it. If you’ve got a weak heart, or mind, or anything else of functional importance, close your eyes and read no further. Okay, ready? “Summer is over.” Having known a slain messenger or two, I realize that announcements like this don’t invite grateful smiles, and even provoke sorne to repeatedly beat the naive big-mouth about the head. So, in the form of appeasement I’ve got some solutions on how to beat the end-of-summer-back-to-school blues. (Playing them will be discussed at a later date in an article entitled “Soul Searching Rhythms of Remote University Towns.“) “Solutions?” you query, “But tell me Oh Benevolent Ink Smearer, is summer in September not beyond the grasp of us woefully frostbitten Canadians?” No, it isn’t. Straightening out those seasonal frowns is merely a matter of self-hypnosis and mental competence, or, if you wish, mental incompetence. Here’s a list of wonderfully baffling mind games that will help turn your blues to reds. (There’s a hidden solution in that last sentence.) Paste the list on your fridge, memorize it, or write it on any part of your body that interests you. 1. Continue wearing summer attire no matter how cold it gets. If this practice catches on, winter might just go away. 2. Drink a lot. 3. Turn the heat way up in your home and complain about sweating too much. By the way, heat

September

e prostration does wonders for depression. 4. Drink a lot. 5. If you spent the summer relaxing, compare your tan with those unfortunate enough to have been employed while those rays beamed. This should be done loudly and obnoxiously. 6. Drink a lot. 7. Have your favourite mate spread suntan oil all over your body. If nothing else, you’ll be distracted. 8. Drink a lot. 9. As a last resort, get heavily into school. You may someday get a good-paying job and be able to retire to Florida early. \ 10. Drink a lot. At this point in the procedure you may want to vomit. This will make it easier to comply with rules 12, 14, 16, etc. Well, there you go. Actually the list is endless. My favourite one involves forks and small, furry animals, but I realize that’s not for everyone. 1 want you to remember, however, that I tend to be seriously misinformed and that I am not an expert in this field. So, please don’t hold me responsible if you continue to trudge dejectedly through piles of leaves. After all, who are we to do battle with the forces of nature? One final comment; though the winters may be long, and the tyrannical forces of school may be brutal, summer will return. This thought alone is enough to quell any blizzard, unless you forget it from drinking too much.
