Flanagan says “fee is discriminatory”

’.COiiilcil. get& I itih4ti.e Ion cimiputer 1 fees ’ \ by Ian Lipton Imprint staff “The mandatory computer fee is discriminatory because it is not charged equally across the board,” said Federation of Students President Sonny Flanagan at last Sunday’s Students’ Council meeting. Flanagan was conveying the opinion of Tony Keller, the lawyer hired by the Federation to determine if the computer fees are j ‘, Alegal. Four weeks ago the,Committee on Mandatory Computer Fees (CMCF) was set up to decide how the Federation will protest the recently imposed computer fees. The committee concluded that the computer fees are a form of tuition and are being unjustly charged by the administration. lan Mitchell, chairman of CMCF, argued that although the university administrationis charging the fees as ancillary fees, they are actually

“back door” tuition fees. According to the council of Ontario Universities, ancillary fees are those fees imposed’ by the university which a student is required to pay upon registration, in order to fulfil1 the requiremerits-of the academic progra’m. However, the ancillary fees should not impede accessibility, should not pay for costs traditionally covered by general tuition fees, and should reflect the costs of the goods and, services provided. 1 “The CMCF feels th e computer fees do impede the accessibility, and are paying for costs that have been traditionally covered .by tuition fees,” said Mitchell. “And up to now, the administrati.on has not provided us with a breakdown Of where lhe money is going-” Last week, upon the advice of the CMCF, Flanagan met with Keller to determine the legality of the fees. “Mr. Keller is in the process of examining the case so ‘a conclusion will not be reached ‘I for a few weeks,” said Flanagan.

- mgh- pressure magazine sales: *

Students czin’t get out Of contract j by Susan Horsey . I -\‘ Legal Resource Of&e The U W Legal Resource Office is warning gtudents to beware of door-to-door ‘salespeople offering cut-rate prices o_n long-term magacine subscriptions. Large magazine companies periodically launch intensive campaigns to increase subscripti&% Since students are a prime target, sales representatives place special emphasis on highly-populated student areas, such as the residences, the Married Students complex, and Sunnydafe. ’ The salespeople persuade unwary consumers to buy five-year subscriptions to packages of magazines, claiming that the subscrip.. tions may be cancelled any time. This claim is. misleading. The Consumer Protection Act states that the cbnsumer has dnly 48 hours to cancel a contract. The Better Business Bureau advises that consumers should cancel by registered mail, within 48 hours of signipg the contract, and save a copy of the _ letter as proof. After 48 hours, the contract cannot be broken without the consent of both parties. The LRO has received a number of complaints from studehts who buy subscriptions, but don’t get all the magazines they ordered. Any magazihes they do receive arrive on an irregular basis. When they attempt to cancel, they discover they can’t break the\ contract. Kirk McMullin, a PhD student m microbiology, purchased a five-year subscription to ‘five magazines from a representative of Trans Canada Readers Service, a, division of Maclean Hunter Limited.

This is the question that three women from the UW Health ,and Safety clinic set out to explain and answer on Monday, October 7. Caroline Yagar and Linda Grant, registered nurses, and Marion Howell, the head of chmpushealth prbmotions, spoke with about thirty students about alcohol;‘sex and decisions relating to ‘both. Yagar defined sexuality (for the group); “It is a process, a constant changing, relating a combination of feelings, ideas, desires and physical experience. It has no centre, no essence, no beginning, no end, and no orderly set of static category can possibly encompass (it).” She informed the group that to make a responsible decision, be it sexual or otherwise, one, needs

The h4cMullin’s didn’t hear from Trans Canada again until their collection’ agency called demanding payment. When they refused;Trans Canada filed a claim with Small Claims Court. Last Friday, the company sued the McMullins and 14 other angry ’ subscribers for the remaining balance of their subscriptions. Trans Canada usually or two subscribers every month in Kitchener. Although the company had misled ill 15 subscribers b;, claiming thatihey, could cancel at any time, the judge was largely unsympathetic. He reminded them that they should have read the cot\ract before signing. He added that Trans Canada’s failure ,to deliver many of the magazines did not constitute a breach of contract, since, “Canada Post is often unreliable.” All of the subscribers were required to pay the remainder of their subscription, ?s ’ well as Trans Canada’s court cost. _ Mark Dahl, another UW student, is also facing claims ‘from Trans Canada, and had intended to dispute then-i in court. After seeing Friday’s outcome, he’s decided to come td an agreement with the collection agency to avoid court-costs. “I’ve learned a very expensive lesson,‘* said Dahl.

information. The women wanted to give that information to students who may not have had any opportunity to learn about it’ previously. Last y.ear, health services found that many young women came into the clinic who had high anxiety levels and many questions about contracehtives and infection. This progrhm, officially titled “Can we Talk?” was’started this year because of those quesiions and because there was a siight increase in the pregnancy rate last year. The group was given a case study about a young university couple deciding whether or not to become sexually involved. They were then split into four groups to.discuss questiong concerning the next move of the couple. Each group &as then given a possible conclusion and asked ’ to.discuss the feasibility of the situation. At the end of the discussion it was noticed that noni: of the groups took into the consideration ‘the subjects of birth dontrol or sexually transmit-

” Students not’the problem, ‘but inadequate housing is Amongst all the recent clamour about Waterloo’s uptown housing shortage, one thing is consistently overlooked: students do not live in extremely cramped quarters, paying exhorbitant rent, by choice. They do so because their options are limited by a lack of adequate housing and no lack of landlords willing to charge up to $225 for a single room and $175 for a shared room. It is a shame that the only reason that the student has come to the fore is because of housing crisis complaints by residents about excessive noise and overcrowding. As a result, some local politicians have run scared and the only response they have to the problem is to enforce archaic bylaws on occupancy limits, which are totally unrealistic given the severity of the housing crisis. If the city byjaw limiting occupancy to five unrelated persons per household is enforced, hundreds of UW and WLU students will be out on the streets. Some solution! Hopefully, when the city’s task force on uptown housing

is formed and studies the matter more thoroughly, they will offer more imaginative solutions than evicting students from their homes. If student representation and input on this task force is encouraged - as city officials promise others should be able to see that students themselves are not the problem, but that students are victims in all this. They must pay outrageous sums of money for the privilege of being packed ten to a house, often in sub-standard accomodation. It’s time that the student housing problem was addressed directly - with the construction of the proposed townhouses on the north campus, along with additional low-income housing off campus. As well, it would help if the city was as intent on enforcing property standards as it is on enforcing occupancy limits. Overcrowding and noise in the uptown area are merely one symptom of the larger disease: a lack of suitable student housing at a fair price. Rick Nigol

Suzuki. just an observer as he offers no sohtions O.K. David Suzuki, scientist and humanitarian, there is a problem with government, academics and society at large being ignorant about science and ethics. We gathered that much from your speech at UW two weeks ago. The world is tied to the tracks and the train is coming. So what are we going to do about it? The shoulders collapse in a shrug and open palms fly up in the air in response. He hides behind the words: “I’m only an observer. I’m not here to offer solutions.” Well Suzuki, there are just too many damned observers around. Tell us, who if not you - one of the most informed and visible - is going to start offering solutions and doing something. Talk is not only cheap and plentyful, it also begins to have its own numbing dynamic as a consequence. We have all heard from Jonathan Schell, Helen Caldicott and a multitude of other minor celebrity “activists” who are active only with words. The air is filled with this talk of approaching doom‘and we are starting to suffocate. It would be interesting to hear about Suzuki withholding his taxes or forming a coalition of scientists who set a standard for ethical practise, lived up to it themselves and actively recruit others to do so. Why have we not heard about things like this? Why have there been ,no solutions offered? Perhaps it is because you have not the ability to see the solutions; you who are so well read, so observant and so outspoken. what can

It seems a bit odd, though, that no thought of be done has crossed your mind. certainly YOU





not voice


Maybe you think you have done enough already by observing and reporting. After all, we cannot expect much more from any other man. But again, who if not you? Suzuki, you are in the position of knowledge and respectibility. It seems a travesty to let that slip into a v,acuum of uselessness. Perhaps you are afraid of facing what you know to be solutions: a need for alternative lifestyles, political structures and human relations - in short, a whole new moral standard. Perhaps facing that, adopting it as a personal ethic and advocating it for others would bring reprecussions too great for you to handle. It is putting yourself as a leader of men, not merely an observer. You would risk your scholarly distance, get your hands dirty .. . wallow in the mud.People may push you even further than they do now. Maybe the risk is too great - not worth the price to the comfortable life to which you are accustomed Oh, Mister Suzuki, if that is the case, where is your, integrity? You are putting your own comfort in front of what you have observed to be the fate of the earth. Surely you are&’ I not that important. If our politicians are all lawyers and the scientific community is not represented well enough, if public office is filled with neanderthals with nuclear weapons, then you %should do something about it. Why not run for office yourself? It is time for words to become action. This is as much a matter of hope and encouragement as it is of awareness. Please open a window and let in some fresh I air.

To the editor: I am writing in response to a letter by Randy Arthurentitled “Star Wars is the best defence:‘, contained in last week’s Imprint. I must say that I have never seen so many ludicrous statements appear in a span of but a few short paragraphs. I do not wish to address them all, but rather, I will focus on what appears to be his main point, that “SD1 is the most credible deterrent to clear war currently on the horizon simply because it removes the option of an effective counterforce attack (first strike) from the Soviet Union.” This is absolute bunk! SD1 willnot be credible because it will not work, neither at the systems level nor as a strategy. There are many reasons for this, I .will touch on just a . few. _ At the. system level, \we are talking about tracking ~l%~O+ warheads, in addition to a larger number of decoys, and destroying the warheads before they. reach their target. This must be done in a matter of minutes. human or humans possibly carry out this task, so a “battle management computer” !;;;,‘,3p” utilized. No computer exists today which can match BU-






Proponents of SDI dM-rn that the.system will be about 50 per cent effective, meaning that half theassaulting warheads will survive and reach their target. Given that the “experts say 50 per cent translates into 20 per cent in reality, enough warheads will make it through the so-called “defence’! shield to virtually wipe out the U.S. Wh,at kind of deterrent would this be to the t. USSR when they know full well that they have not lost the capability to destroy the U.S.? Furthermore, SD1 could only “protedt” against missiles fired on high bal.listic trajectories. It be even more useless if the aggressor were to use bombers or cruise missiles. . As a strategy, SD1 is foolhardy, it is nothing short of madness. One would have to be insane to think that the Soviets will just sit back while the U.S. develops SD1 (but thisinsanity brought us to the balance of terror situation we have in the world today). The Soviets have many options. *They could easily increase-their offensive arsen,al with the intended of any strategic “defence” system that the Americans could put in

by Mike Lob I got to thinking about names the other day, particularly ’ names that, we have and don’t use.or names that we don’t have ‘that we use, or prefer’ to anyway, My true name is i(ok Keong, chosen by my parents, probably after much consultation with the wiser ones in the family. However, in the first week .or so at school in Toronto for my grade thirteen, a guidance counsellor suggested Mike would probably be easier for her. She had to deal with various other students with rather special adjustment problems, being new -to Canada, and their having difficult names certainly did not seem to help. Of course, the question of having my dignity bruised was never raised since I didn’t too offending to be called differently for practical reasons. Furthermore, .- Westerners seem to have this rather liberal .outlook on names, except the Win’daors and the Mulroneys perhaps. I would probably have been slightly overemphasizing the issue if I had protested violently, and everything worked out fine as I became used to Mike Loh. Back in Malaysia one gets quite used to all kinds of, names,-since the school children are streamed together at a young age and names that reveal one’s ethnic origin are taken as only natural. However, the practice of adopting Christian names while maintaining the.ancestral surname ’ has become increasingly popular for ‘Western-educated parents r to keep up,with the new age, in compliance with religious norms, or simply because they don t know how to pick a name in Chinese, Indian, or in their other mother tongues. . To name‘in Chinese, I know, is a pretty complex task.. While finding a nice sounding garden-variety one word name like Mike requires no extensive- consideration in English, the Chinese are very particular about the deeper implications of a child’s name, and in some-case even the hour of birth is taken into account. Furthermore, 4he conibinations to construct a poetic and meaningful two-character name are endless. Many, like my parents, simply resorted to the more commonly used ones that had stood the test of time and proved to be no less benificial to male children in guiding them through their lives. What about literal translations? Well, by -Westernstandards, these areas difficult to comprehend as to pronounce. My name, and various others in Chinese, if translated literally would probably describe newly built, nuclear submarines better than it does those human -virtues which the Chinese value most,. That migh],explain why taking on popular Western personal names is taken 1 lightly by those who have them; it’s a matter of conven-, ience and acceptance.

by Nicole Gnutzman Imprint staff UW’s Board of Entertainment has a new philosophy, and a new entertainment director. With the departure of Gary Stewart last summer comes the advent of David Simpson at the helm of BEnt. Simpson’s credentials are impressive, his lifestyle interesting, and his personality full of enthusiasm for the enterainment year. Having spent the last five years in Sacramento., California, promoting and producing concerts as a private venture, he views this undertaking as “an interesting way of seeing how university entertainment operates.” Simpson’s entrance into the entertainment world may, in fact, be attributed to chance,



An opportunity had arisen for further development of his capacity as an entertainment producer without the private financial risk. In contrast to his private enterprise in California, Simpson sees “the ideals of BEnt as different,” in that BEnt is not a money-making venture: The philosophy behind BEnt this year is “to bring a diversity of shows to the university at a break-even point,” and to present entertainment “in as economical and esthetic a manner as possible.” BEnt’s role is to try and establish a range of contemporary music and comedy acts which appeal to the student clientele. Up-and-coming

include: a comedy concert on Wednesday, October 16 featuring comics-from Y uk Y uks such as The Norm, Steve Brinder, and Evan Carter; K.D.

On the horizon for BEnt is the implementation of a once-a-month free concert, a policy which, in fact, has already been agreed upon by both Simpson and the Federation of Students administra-


.WPIRG board acclaimed The Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) has six new Directors for its Board. They were acclaimed this past week. Elections were planned, but most of WPIRG’s current volunteers (there are about fourty-five volunteers) have decided to get involved with other WPIRG committees. No ‘unknowns’ stepped forward. The WPIRG Board of Directors decide policy and direction for the group. The following are statements by the six new Directors. (There is one returning member.) Tim Elkin My intest in WPIRG started shortly after arriving on campus, This organization, whose mandate questions the ‘status quo,’ and whose focus included concerns reenvironmental quired further investigation. So over the past three year I’ve been involved with many WPIRG seminars and study groups on ecological issues. I have also been involved with other local community groups, such as Ebytown Food Co-op, Global Community Centre, and the Eco-Community Pi-eject. My own research into environmental quality in Waterloo Region is providig valuable local insights. At this stage I have sufficient understanding of the role of WPIRG, in both a local & provincial context, to want to make a direct contribution to its present operation and future direction. Alexandra McQueen Although 1 am a newcomer to the WPIRG Board of Directors,, 1 feel that I am well-suited for the position of director due to my enthusiastic interest in the workings and activities of WPIRG. As a Board member, I will attempt to ensure both the smooth running of WPIRG and the extension of WPIRG’s activities on cam,pus and in the community. I am a strong proponent of public interest reasearch, and, as such, -feel that the position of director would be benificial for both myself and for WPIRG.


because while on a holiday visiting friends in California he was asked to put up some money to finance a show, and he stayed, leaving his teaching position at the University of- Bordeau behind. After the initial investment, and a subsequent immersion into the field of entertainment, Simpson realized that the realm of entertainmentwas, in fact, “a roller coaster ride in the promotion and production business.” Again, on an&her holiday, visiting Toronto, where he had attended York University and graduated with an honours B.A. in English, he happened upon an ad in The Globe and Mail in regard to the position of entertainment programmer at the University of Waterloo.

Donna Jennison As an outdoor educator with the Halton Region Conservation Authority for four years, my work experiences include nature interpretation, camp directorship, program planning and promotion and staff training and evaluation.

Pageant protest will continue, says Bate by Christine Sinding The 1,429 signatures presented to UW president Douglas Wright, may not have stopped the 20 Miss Oktoberfest contestants from ‘strutting their stuff last night; however, the anti-pageant petition has provoked awareness and may give rise to an annual protest if the event is not removed from university ground. Janet Bate, a strong figure behind the Woman’s Centre’s drive against the pageant, said the obvious goal of the centre is to see the contract between the university and Oktoberfest Incorporated terminated for 1986. She said the centre is supporting the “collective rights” of women and the university has a responsibility to recognize the demeaning values such a pageant supports; especially considering the role universities play in the support of progress and education within so&ety. “I don’t think getting more signatures will persuade the president further. For myself, I believe, should the president choose not to stop renting the space to the pageant, the most effective route to take is in having an annual protest and make it uncomfortable for Oktoberfest Incorporated to continue holding the pageant here,” said Bate. The Woman’s Centre launched it’s campaign *against the pageant last July and a main concern of the centre are the stringent rules which limit the pageant to a minority group of women in society. Such rules exclude women who are married, have children in or out of wedlock, com’mon law wives, divorced women, etc. Furthermore, the Woman’s Centre opposes what beauty pageants in general classify as talent ... simplistic routines which in no way serve as criteria for entry into the contest. In response, the Women’s Centre urged the nublic and students to witness ‘true talent’ at a coffeehouse held% the Psychology Lounge ‘at the same time as the pageant last night. Although Bate believes the university will be better off without the pageant, representatives of the Humanities Theatre say students have a lot to

lose. Dan Donaldson, manager of the Centre ofthe Arts, said the contract with Oktoberfest lncorporated is their largest single money maker and losing such a contract may mean future cut backs in the very equipment students need to learn. “The $8,000 contract with Oktoberfest Incorporated is the largest single rental client we have and if it were not there, we would find it difficult to replace. That rental figure is needed and is poured into the, facilities here. Without it, the lack of such money might indirectly affect students,” said Donaldson. He said the university holds no opinion on the event b+ merely rents a facility to a company. “The pageant is going to happen whether it is here or not. These facilities are built for academics and are supported by the public’s tax dollars. We should have a desire to return the investment to the community and try to this by presenting such events,” said Donaldson. “I think there are other, more important women’s issues on campus as opposed to whether or not the Miss Oktoberfest pageant is run here. If there aren’t, students here have something to be proud of.” On the other side of the coin, the Oktoberfest executive believes they are being unfairly picked on and pointed to a variety of other pageants which represent the same ideas the Women’s Centre is concerned aboLit. “Everybody is entitled to an opinion, but I think we are being wrongly picked on. We have never ran into this problem before but it’s not so much that they are against the pageant but rather, against it’s location,” said Stewart. “The contest itself is enjoyed.” However, the Woman’s Centre does have complaints against the pageant and with the support of the petition, they plan to pursue the issue. Janet Bate says a university is a place to estab- , lish progressions and, as the pageant maintains unfair and stringent rules, the university should view the termination of the contract as being progressive, rather than viewing it as censorship.

“And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood . ..Andthekingsoftheearth.andthe great men, and the rich men . . . and every free man hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains.” “We’re not talking about some social issue here. What we’re talking about is a missile that could blow most of this continent away. There aren’t going to be one hell of a lot of survivors, and the few that make it,\wi.ll wish to God they were dead.”

west German protestor Every day I pass a car whose bumper proclaims “The End is Near.” With the impending arms talks, andthe dry voice of the reporter, and the puzzling-apathy it all evokes, I looked at the bumper sticker for the first time with the beginnings of conscious deliberation. I thought about “The End” when I passed that Buick - about the end of life, the end of civilization on this planet. The End I walked around for the next couple of deys, and I could feel the shadow of those missiles. I watched people’s faces, looking for some sign that they, too, were mildly worried about being incinerated. Nothing. Was I the only one wandering around with visions of mushroom clouds dancing in my head? I decidedthento put my worst fears into words. Then, I realized what was gnawing at the corners of my brain wasn’t what I thought about all this nuclear war, but what was everyone else w So I asked them.




There is rifle fire from the treeline, tongues of orange and yellow in the inky black The platoon crouches in the tall grass, faces smeared with greasepaint and burnt cork, gloved hands wound on the stocks of rifles. The Lieutenant glances at the luminous face of his watch and pushes himself to his feet, a line of helmeted soldiers suddenly taking shape behind him. They move quietly, and quickly, following the pale ribbon of road. Behind them, the river’s steady hum is lost in the cacophony of weapons. A Sergeant in the lead section trips the flare, strung at a;nkle height across the road It paints the meninsearingwhite light, anda machine gun follows them as they dive, to lie face down in the mud, noses full of the stink of cordite, and wet earth. The flare sputters and dies, and in the absolute dark that follows, enemy soldiers climb the banks of the Ottawa River. Lieutenant Grassik and his platoon enjoy the immortality known only to peacetime armies, living through skirmish and battle to be killed or captured in the next one. In military circles, it was known as an exercise, a game designed to prepare men to kill other men. Grassik is an eight year career officer, having served with the United Nations in Cyprus, and Egypt. He is currently a member of Canada’s elite Airborne Regiment, a unit tasked with jumping from Cl30 aircraft into combat situations in the Middle East, or in Europe. In 1984 Grassik and a group of staff officers attended a tour of several high level American military installations, including the NORAD headquarters in Colorado. “It was frightening, really,” says Grassik “I don’t think anyone can imagine the destruction of nuclear war, but seeing rooms of computers, and silos, and models of warheads . . . it gives you an idea” Gras&k lights a Players, smoke curling lazily toward the flourescent lights overhead. “These missiles were one hundred and fi.Qy feet long. First, threre’s the explosion, then the unbelievable heat, and then who knows how many years before the fallout is at an acceptable level for human life. In conventional wars,~ it is mainly soldiers killing other soldiers, nuclear war is a lot less discriminate. Everyone dies, either fast or slow. I don’t believe, like I used to, that there’s any such thing as a survivable nuclear war.” On the parade square, a group of soldiers march past, orchestrated arms and legs like some great centipede. Grassik returns the Sergent’s salute smartly. Interestingly, the salute dates back to the simpler days, when men faced one another in iron suits on horseback, and the gesture lifted a helmet’s visor, thus implying trust. “The days of chivalry,” smirks Grass% “Still”, he ssys, “Those missiles are launched by men. I think that’s why we haven’t seen World War III. Nobody wants to use those things on anyone else. Besides, it’s more mutual suicide, than war. We launch our missile, they launch theirs . . . we all die. But as long as we’ve got about the same number of rockets aimed at each other, nobody moves. _We’re living in the stand-off, and as long as that’s., true,” - _ Grassik’s gesture takes in the marching soldiers, “it wiJ.l be guys like us doing the dying.” .b

Six year old Christopher tells me about the time he saw a “huge bomb” on the television set in his living room. He throws his arms into the air, and blows out hischeeks, the very picture of a human bomb. He runs around the room screaming. He is clearly an explosion. His mother and I watch him quietly, separated by a heap of G.I. Joe, and HeMan dolls. Hogan’s Heroes drones on the screen. Christopher explains with the patience of a six year old speaking to an adult that “the bomb was an old one, and they got better ones now.”

,Byrds -take flight by Mike Wolfe Imprint staff Last Tuesday the Byrds, “America’s answer to the Beatles,” time warped out of the 60s to play for a minimal audience at Fed Hall. I Yes, the Byrds were really back, at least two of them were. The rest of the band are ex-Firefall, Flying Burrito’s, and Beach Boys. But the show was incredible! If I wasn’t a Byrds fan before, I’m definitely one now. Admittedly, there was a lengthy wait for the band to start, and once they finally arrived, they came on one at a time to play some of their older tunes. When original member Gene Clark finally did stumble on stage it was less than impressive, and at times he forgot to play his guitar. By this time I was tempted to leave. But the second set was the most outrageous playing I have . ever heard! The band was really tight, and Goldie broke into searing guitar solos in every song. Deadheads were dancing in the corner, people sat cross-legged on the floor,.and by the time they played Eight Miles High I felt like I was at Woodstock: Truly an exceptional performance. I managed to talk to the band after the show and found out a bit about where they’ve been, and where they are going. imprint: You’ve been out of the music scene for quite a while what made you decide to come back? Byrds: In 1972 the band broke up and we found that people are still really into the music and we love to play it so why let it die? I: How does it feel, coming back after all this-time, amongst all these “new wave” bands? B: Wonderful. It’s not often you get a second chance. It’s a good feeling, and we feel very fortunate to play again. We feel we’re giving people back a part of the past. I: What do you think of bands like R.E.M., Jason and the Scorchers etc., bringing back the old sound and making it ’ fashionable again? B: They have something to do with our revival. I’m not too familiar with their stuff, but they say that we were an influence. I: Everyone always talks about you and the Beatles .. . How

(much of an influence were they on you really? I: Roger, the original guitarist, saw A Hard Days Night and bought a 12 string guitar and finger picked it. That’s how we got that “new” sound. Roger got started playing Beatles songs in school bands. My (John) decision to become a professional musician was directly influenced by them. When we went to England we spent a lot of time with the Beatles, the Stonesand the Moody Blues.

‘I: What do you think of the directions new music is going in? B: It’s healthy because everyone has their own music. Music is a personal progression. I: What is in the future for the Byrds? B: We’d like to keep touring with this lineup, and our goal is to release a record in ‘86, and then keen touring. We’d like to gradually work in more the new stuff and still play our old favourites.

benes: accompi~snea -_ musrclanmp -1.

by John Zachariah Imprint staff Franc, Garth, and Mary Mosbaugh, the trio of siblings who compose Genes, brought their souped-up act to a mid-sized crowd at Fed Hall on Wednesday, October 2. Their between-song patter fell upon deaf, largely humourless ears, but so what; the music’s the thing, and Genes provided plenty.

Having assimilated a broad range of musical styles, the group takes and grinds them into one, like an oversized Cuisinart. The result, however, is surprisingly and refreshingly unsterilized. The musicianship was accomplished (Garth plays keyboards, Franc plays bass) but the big draw was the stirring way in which the three used ‘their voices. One of the most

Skeleton by Stephen Ditner Imprint staff Reading the background information on Skeleton crew, the band they said could not be labelled, arouses even the most jaded music wizard’s curiosity. Included in the description were word’s like violin, cello, electric motor, and tape deck. These were not words I normally used in the same sentence, or even the same evening, and here they were, mentioned in the same musical group. The evening sounded like it might turn into one of dungeon music, and what better place than Kitchener’s own BackDoor last Monday? As I hadn’t as yet caught any of this group’s musical efforts, I made my way to the nightspot with openest of minds. The scene was set for no small number of possibilities - a dark fall evening, and the cozy confines of mv favourite neiahbourhood bar. The Backdoor, as any locz will tell you, i decorated for Halloween - all year round. There are fake cobwebs, spiders, .and real rats. The trio had heaped their eauinmei..

I arrived unfashionably early,‘cuttiig my teeth on a beer and sliding up to the bar to watch a skinny young may toying with the most diverse, and absurd collection of musical and non-musical apparatus thrown together since the return of the Beach Boys. The evening was divided into three parts,

unique aspects of the show was, in fact, the way the group substituted their vocal cords for horns. They definitely enjoy themselves onstage, and one can see evidence of their ability ‘in their tight and polished show. Mercifully, their material was largely devoid of Top 40 covers, and included a good bit of original material. The first half of the show was high-



lighted by an extended jazz piece and a Simon and Garfunkel medley. This was the reasonably subdued, and Genes showed what they were truly capable of in the second set, which included reggae, a rearranged a capella Bach tune, and a comic skewering of lounge standards like Me and

My Shadow. I All of this was only a build up, though, for an incredibly

-Cr w eclectic with each of the band members joining the other, and adding another strand to a strangely tense and tightly woven mix of jazz, classical, rock fusion, and fifty stops in between. Had I not been as sober as a bishop, I would not have believed the clever bastardizing of so many musical disciplines. Skeleton Crew is one act having its cake, and eating it too. “We’ve taken what we wanted from all kinds of music, and made it come together using different sounds than everyone else.” said Fred Frith. He does not smile when he says this. Frith is joined by Tom Cora, an accomp- ’ lished improv musician whose efforts have teamed his with a lot of avant garde’s big brains, including Schockabilly guitar ace Eugen Chadbourne. Last to join was Zeena Perkins, formerly of News From Babel. If the Boston Philharmonic died and went to Hell, it wuld sound like Skeleton Crew. As I suspected, there was no better place for a group like this to open its bag of tricks than the smoky depths of the’ Backdoor. The tone was not overly heavy, surprisingly, and there was none of the theatrical pomp normally associated with EuroThe band (spell one disc to date, and called “Learn y, and

This was followed by a jazz interpretation of a Beatles song which merged into a reggae tinged vocal trade-off between the Mosbaugh offspring, which made way in turn for a sweaty jazz coda.

complete with chirpy irritating backing vocals. Truly a masterpiece of imagination. The trio’s subtle, tonge-incheek humour should not go unmentioned, nor should their engaging stage presence. Far from the mediocre lounge act. I had expected, Genes avoided dredging those bland waters. This group will be at the Diamond Club in November.

by Durrell S. Bowman Those interested in the Canadian “new folk” scene will no doubt be familiar with the music of Jane Siberry. Her innovative yet accessible style has resulted in a growing number of fans and, ultimately, in a recording contract with an appropriately fesh and promising Toronto label: Duke Street Records. Siberry’s first Duke Street album (she had an independent release several years ago) was No Borders Here, a big 1984 hit which spawned such successes Las “Mimi on the Beach”. The aural tex :ures of Border were remarkable but .even more so are the textures

Get a head start ’ in management

ot her new album; The Speckless Sky. Where No Borders Here was more obviously dervied fro the “classical” folkie idioms of Siberry’s roots (ie. acoustic guitar and vocal orientation), the new release makes a more extensive use of her five-member band. The sparse and consequently memorable nature of Siberry’s earlier songs has now been complemented by a contrasting complexity, which should appease those critics who had formerly accused her of having,an unnecessarily repetitive, internal song structure. The lyrics are, however, in the style of Borders and relfect Siberry’s talent at musing aloud. Five of the eight new songs have also made a more effective use of her Fairlight computer music instrument

Pixote: the strength tcBdream by Paul Done Imprint staff Pixote, the latest offering the international film series at the Humanities Theatre, is the story of a Brazilian waif (Pixote) and his tribulations. Filmed in Sao Paulo with a cast of slum children, the movie is a stark portrayal of life in the ghettoes of the emerging industrial nations. The crux of the movie is a Brazilian legal loophole wher-

eby minors cannot be charged with criminal offences. Consequently children are recrutied as pimps, theives, and pickpockets. As a by-product, reform schools become penal houses rather than correctional institutions. Thus, there is a very Dickensian feel to the film. In true Dickens style, the authorities are either incompetent, unconcerned or openly malignant towards the youths. The

So you thought by Stephen Ditner Imprint staff Arnold Schwartzenegger is John Matrix in Commando.

His former commanding officer pops up in a helicopter one sunny afternoon, com<2,. .. .. .

children turn to crime as the only possible means of escape from their hopeless surroundings. The movie is cynical in a way that is intensely claustrophobic. Every symbol of so‘and materialism is ciety assaulted and torn to shreds. The mother image is displayed and destroyed by a prostitute. The father image for Pixote is a teenage homosexual. The cities are cess-

.pools, friends become enemies and companionship is based on common goals. As a final insult to the Latin spirit, religion is portrayed as petty, materialistic and bourgeois. Though hindered by the fact that the audience had to rely on subtitles, Pixote is a brutal film of undeniable power. It is a movie about loss of innocence, the defeat of human dignity and the strength to dream.

Rambo had big arms

plete with two soldiers in combat gear, to tell John that, well, someone is killing all the former members of that unit and that John is undoubtedly next. John looks angry and tells the officer that, despite his daughter’s protests, he will track down the killers. It is highly considerate, really, for a man who lives in the middle of nowhere, and minds his own business. * Predictably, the killers appear next, and shoot Matrix’s house full of holes. Matrix, bigger even than Rambo, fetches his automatic rifle, but not before the bad guys make off with his cute, loveable, and vulnerable daughter. John is upset, and shoots one of the criminal gang t through the

What unfolds, of course, is that the gang wants killing machine John Matrix to do their dirty work, and kill a President (it is never clear just which one). John reluctantly agrees, realizing he must comply, or see his daughter harmed by the gang. When the bad guys put John on the plane for wherever, however, he breaks his escort’s neck rather handily and jumps from the plane as it takes off. What ensues is a spree of interesting, entertaining, and heartwarming violence- that leaves the viewer spellbound. There is nothing quite so stirring as seeing a man built like a mythical creature firing a machine gurione handed, or beating on scores of lesser beings such as policemen. The plot, really, is just the bones on which the flesh of ultra-violence hangs, and rather nicely too. I don’t believe I have ever seen such colourful, or creatively choreographed brutality combined with such sardonic humour. Schwarzenegger is the pro-

laughter. Without telling too much, the film winds up happily. Arnold gets the young girl (both his daughter and the other one, too) and when the Army finally shows up (a scene stolen blatantly from Apocalypse Now) Schwarzenegger unsmilingly tells the officer that he has lef-t nothing for him “except bodies.” The crowd, again, is fraught with hysterical glee. If you need 90 odd minutes of rather funny, and imaginative bone crushing, coupled with some fairly slick camera catch Commando. work, After all, Arnold has bigger arms than Rambo.

Moza,rt bcus of KW concert/-series by Peter Lawson Imprint staff




the enthusiasm which surrounded the movie the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra has embarked on a series of tributes to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his contemporaries. The first concert in this series, Champions,was conducted on the evenings of Tuesday, September 24 and Wednesday, September 25 at the UW Theatre of the Arts. A pruned orchestra (about 30 players), ready for the spring of a new season, performed works by W.A. Mozart, Jan Baptiste Vanhal, Johan Albrechtsberger, and Michael Haydn. Also special to this evening was special guest conductor Peter McCoppin. The concert began with “our hero”, W.A. Mozart’s (17561792) Impresario Overture which is an overture to a one-act comedy, though now surviving as a concert piece. The music is wonderfully Mozart (who else could it have been?), and the orchestra began in strong form. The second treat on the list was J.B. Vanhal’s (1739-1813) Concerto for Bass in E-major, a surprising instrument to desighate solo passages. Vanhal, though born in Czechoslovakia, emigrated to Vienna where he lived primarily as a composer and a teacher. The combination of good music and the oppor’ tunity to hear bass solo passages make&he Bass Concerto an interesting-piece. The bassist was Janet Auger, the principle Bass of the K.W.S.O. and the solo Bass for the Canadian Chamber Ensemble. The evening’s most popular compostion, The Concerto for Horn in E-flat major NO. 4 K.495 by W.A. Mozart, has the benifit of being often played and, therefore, audience enthusiasm is easily sparked. The third movement, Rondo-Allegro, could be included into Mozart’s top ten greatest hits. The principal French. Horn of the K.W.S.O. and the Canadian Chamber Ensemble, John Milner, played these legendary passages. After the intermission, the music continued with Concerton for Alto Trombone in B-flat major by Albrechtsberger (17361809) a famous theorist and organist of his day. The oychestra composition of only the first and second violins, no viola, a few cellos, and a single bass was an unusual backing for an altp trombone concerto. But this no&l collaboratin supplied an abundance of pleasing tunes, especially in the second movemnet - Adagio. The soloist, Joseph Castello, is the principal Trombone with the K.W.S.O. and the Canadian Chamber Ensemble. The final piece was Michael Haydn’s Symphony in D major. Micael Haydn, the younger brother of the famous Joseph Haydn, worked for the Archbishop in Salzburg, and composed mostly religious compositions, though he also wrote some secular music. The three movement Symphony in D major was a strong conclusion for the complete orchestra and the conAmadeus,

It is usually the case that with a bang and a crash of the drums and cymbals Ranger begins each fast peice like the sole-place holder at an offroad motorcycle race, occasionally exploding into the air with a drum roll and a few cymbal crashes. it’s always amusing to watch Ranger play as he does from behind a constant veil of cigarette smoke emanating from the series of butts he somehow negotiates from the package and lights while still keeping beat with one drumstick and the trap-snare cymbal. The last song, “In Poco, Loco” by Bud Powell, was a ‘fast piece with the great beat drummer’s compositions usually have.

soaked up the sound in between the drums and piano on opposite ends of the podium. With exemplary playing by all on a wide variety of songs, it was a shame that more people did not make the trip; in fact it was embarassing to have such a rare opportunity ignored. But all is not lost, as

Claude Ranger will be b&k on November 15 at St. Je: rome’s College along with his own quintet and his own compositions as well, it can likely be assumed. Also, there will be the Fred Stone Ensemble which looks like it deserves a hearing. So with the World Series over by then, and autumn a reality, let’s be there.

Play on pharmaceutical drugs On Wednesday, October 16 at 8:00 pm., the play Side will be appearing at the YWCA on 84 Frederick St. in Kitchener. The play is a portrayal of the impacts of pharmaceuticals on women in Canada and all over the world. Side Effects is a co-production of the Great Canadian and Women’s Health Interaction, Theatre Company which is a network of health and development, groups who became more and more concerned with the effects of pharmaceutical drugs on women. The play features stories based on true experiences which women have lived through. Some of the_ problems Side Effects deals with are; the sale of drugs in the less industrialized world which are banned in the industrialized tiorld and are often illegal in the country in which they are manufactured, the sale of steroids to treat malnourishment in children, and why doctors prescribe tranquilizers twice as often to women as to men. Progress in women gaining control over their own health is also part of the play, including stories from the women of Bangladesh . The play is being sponsored by the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group and the following co-sponsors; CUSO, Project Ploughshares, Sociology Department, WLU, Women’s Studies of UW, and the UW Women’s Centre.

30 or 40 kilometres per hour, the women played with admirable endurance. Unfortunately, however, the league-leading Mustangs emerged as the 3-l victors.

The Athenas, however, did not give up. With a few minutes to play, the offence saw one of their few real scoring opportunities and Mary Jane Verboon earned Waterloo’s lone goal. The 3-l final score left Water-

Hockey Wa,rriors start Sunday by Cathy’ Somers The hockey Warriors are diligently preparmg for their league opener this Sunday on Columbia lcefield at 7:30 pm. After playing four key exhibition games against Ryerson, Laurier, Brock and R.M.C., the Warriors are beginning to take

shape as a team. Using predominantly allrookie players, the team displayed their strength in terms of defence and scoring. Due to the fact that the team has had Iimited time to work on their playing startegy, a good team

The coaching staff is looking forward to havmg Steve Linesmen in their lineup, as he will likely bring a great deal of scoring punch. Neil Cameron and Andrew Eagles, two key players, will unfortunately be out for most of the early part of the season.

Final cuts were made this past week and the 85-86 roster contains a good balance of returning players and new faces that will contribute on the ice to Waterloo’s climb up the OUAA rankings. The Warriors need your support in their quest, so/ why not come out this Sunday.

wamped zip,

by Mike Upmalis Imprint staff 1 The Waterloo Warriors, a football team only Rodney Dangerfield could love, were blanked by the MixMaster Marauders 60-O before a sparse crowd in Hamilton last Saturday. This same Waterloo team that showed a great deal of promise in the first half against York the previous week, walked onto the field, and got . carried off. Coach Bob McKiilop was very disappointed with the team’s effort. They had spent the week preparing for what they expected Mat to throw at x them. Mat had no surprises, Waterloo had no intensity. The defensive co-ordinator said they should own a yard of Mat territory, instead the steel town Urchins were selling condos in the Waterloo Secondary. In the first half Waterloo did

not get the ball over the centre line until the dying minutesof the half. Starting QB Mike Wright (rookie out of St. Kit’ts) was unable to establish the ground or air game in the first half, Eric Carrier (the Campus Ret Quarterback of last year) came in for the successful trip into Mat territory that stopped when the clock ran out. Waterloo’s net yards of 118 (34 on the ground!) pales besides Mat’s 494 f 13 more than Waterloo’s 60-6 loss last year against Mat). Wright went 4/ 11 for 34 yards on the day and Carrier went 5/ 11 for 59 yards. Top recievers werer Dean Cebuls ki and Maecke, both with 3 for 35 and 36 yards respectively. Waterloo next sees action on October 19 in Toronto. In the battle for the basement, this Waterloo team that has shown promise of doing better, may repeat last year’s disgrace of the .Yorkville B&s.

Coach Judy McCrae reiterated what she has been saying all season, that to get to the playoffs in the toughest field hockey league in Canada is a feat unto itself.

By defeating Western l-.0 last weekend on a sweeping goal by Kathy Goetz, the Athena’s moved one step closer to the playoffs. “We dominated that game even though the .score doesn’t reflect it.

Competitive Volleyball In our first week of men’s competitive-volleyball, four teams have ‘taken an early lead in the league. Renison, our front runner, won all their games impressively although the Hickory Hitmen put up a good fight in Renison’s first game, losing by only 2 points. In a close tie for second, winning three of their four exciting games, we have Nemysis, Elect Few and Six of One. Topping the women’s competitive league is Scramble Squad who swept both of their matches. Closing in on first is Renison who took three of their four games losing only to Conrad Grebel. The rest of the league is fairly tight although South B and Gonrad Grebel have a slight advantage. Good Luck to all teams next week!

The. tournament style was double elimination, which means that a player must lose two games to be eliminated. During the final play in the Men’s A Division, Frank Van Biesen and Karel Kulik were required to play two matches to determine the champion, as neither had lost a game. Van Biesen was the resulting Men’s A Division champion. N. Yatawara won the Men’s B Division, and Laurie Cavan won the Women’s Division.

The C-R program’s preliminary fall stats, although incomplete at this time, indicate another term of excellent involvement by the U W community. Men’s competitive leagues show an overall increase ,due to a new men’s volleyball program. The women’s leagues declined slightly, The recreation leagues show a large increase due to the populatity of Co-Ret volleyball and broomball. The instructional registrations decreased slightly but should be close to last year when all figures are in. The clubs are about the same with heavy 1 registration in the new badminton and fencing clubs. There is an increase in student leaders. Our tournaments are ahead of last year with two excellent slo-pitch tournaments. All in all, it was a very hectic September. The total estimated C-R participation is as follows: Fall 1982 Fall 1983 Fall 1984 Fall 1985 \ Competitive and Recreational Teams 4230 4570 4426 4465 ,Tournaments , 1079 1100 940 719 -Instructional 1509 1917 2026 1796 Student involvement unknown unknown 368 412 Club Members 623 731 728 644
