900 turn out for march protesting underfunding by Craeme Peppler Imprint staff The weather may have been f n g ~ dand frosty, but the enthus~asmwas warm and sincere as UW students, staff, and faculty took to the streets of Waterloo to protest umversity underfundmg on Wednesday An est~mated900 people turned out for the march, organtzed by the Jomt A c t ~ o nComm~ttee on unwerslty underfundmg. That number far exceeded the expectations of organlzers, who were ecstatlc at the response of UW students "I hope t h ~ marks s theend of student apathy a t UW," s a ~ dorganizer and committee member lan M~tchell,dehghted w ~ t the h success of the march "The protest was a lot of fun and that in Itself mcreased student awareness of the issue." But the a m was not so much to Increase student awareness a s ~t was t o brmg the Issue of underfundmg to the people of the community and to O n t a r ~ a n sIn general that, organlzers beIreve, was accompl~shed "The underfund~ngIssue has been generally restr~ctedto unwerslty campuses,"sa~d M~tchell "Only now 1s ~t beglnmng to spread off campuses " The med~a's presence was apparent throughout the protest as major telev~s~on and r a d ~ ostatlons and newspapers were v ~ s ~ bcovle ermg the event. The purpose of the march, which was initiitted by the Federation of Students and the Graduate Student Association and later endorsed by UW president Dr. Doug Wright, was to mobilize public opinion and influence the Ontario government's policies on university funding. Recent concerns with regard to the reduction of accessibility to quality education and the increasingly competitive and trade-conscious international environment, drawing professors away from Canadian universities, were also areas in which the protest was meant to focus. The march began in the Arts quadrangle at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday morning under a cloudscattered, dull sky accompanied by a cold, blus-

tery wind requiring march participants to,brave chilling conditions. Chanting slogans and carrying.bpnncrs aloft? marchers proceeded down University Avenue under police escort, arriving a t Wilfrid Laurier University where they were joined by a diminutive number of Laurier protesters. From there, the march proceeded up King Street, eventually arriving at the Marsland Centre. which houses Waterloo City-Hall. There, several speakers addressed the crowd, among them UW President Wright who also partook in the march. He was enthusiastically cheered with chants of "Doug! Doug!" by students attending the rally. "The future of the country depends on the type of funding we can get from the governments," declared Wright. "The challenge of the future is to meet those (education) needs." He also spoke positively of the Ontario Liberal government's awareness of the underfunding issue. Also adding their comments to the proceedings were Matt Certosimo, student union president a t Laurier and new O F S chairman, and Andy Telegdi. acity aldermanand formerFeder-' ation of Students president at UW. The latter attended in place of Waterloo mayor, Marjorie Carroll, who was unable toattend due to illness. The march proceeded with no problems o r controversies, although a small group of people were present distributing a flyer suggesting that the demonstration was a form of manipulation by the university administration. Their contention is that tax dollars given to UW are being wasted on computer expenditures. Students in the march were well aware oftheir reasons for being there. Greg Dalton, a 2nd year engineering student, expressed his reason for participating: "I'm here because I'm concerned about underfunding," he said. "We're paying for the things the government should be payingfor." Dalton, like others. wants to bring what are perceived to be substandard and unfair financial conditions at provincial post-secondary institutibns to the attention of the people of Ontario.

OTTAWA (CUP) -- The M m s try of Youth 1s a p o l ~ t ~ ctool a l to recrult young members to the P r o g r e s s ~ v eC o n s e r v a t ~ v e party, Youth Mmster Andree Champagne - - wrote ~n a Jan. 6 letter. In the letter, leaked by N D P Youth Critic Howard McCurdy March 6, Champagne writes "2.5 of 4.5 million young Canadians (15-24) will be casting a vote for the first time in 1988. Support to the recruitment efforts of the PC Youth federation will be a pre-writ priority for the government." Champagne's letter, a d dressed simply to "My dear colleague," a t t e m p t s t o win support, persumably from fellow Tory MPs, for 'Year Two" of the Ministry of Youth. The Ministry spent its $24 million budget last year organizing activities and funding projects to celebrate international Year of Youth. "Public expectations created bfiYY-require careful management, especially in light of the significant diminution in youthrelated spending (dose to $100 million since the election),"

Champagne writes. The $100 million is her figure. The "diminution" possible refers to Katimavik, cut by $30 million last year and eliminated in February, saving a n additional $20 million. It may also refer to the $33 millioncut from the Challenge '86 - student summer job creation programme, announced in Dec. 1985. In light of this, Champagne writes, "The package (the Ministry of Youth) is modestly priced a t $7.5 million." Asked to comment, Champagne's press attache Caroline Carel said "Madame Champagne has been in a meeting she hasn't had time to see the copy of the letter. I have not seen it." Asked about the letter in Question Period March 6, Champagne said she did not know what letter McCurdy was referring to. She later briefly met reporters, but only to tell them of measures for youth contained in the Feb. 26 budget. The resignations last month of Champagne's press secretary, her legislative assistant

and her policy advisor, as well as the omission her ministry from federal spending estimates tabled Feb.. 27, has led opposition MPs to speculate the ministry is being abolished. McCurdy said he had little reason to doubt that the letter, which arrived in his office in a brown paper envelope, is authentic. "The letter clearly delineates the cynically opportunistic approach of the government and its ministers in dealing with youth issues, concerns which two recent task force reports have identified as critical," he said. In the letter, Champagne writes "1 seek resources to respond to the serious 'information gap' facing young people." She says the ministry is politically important because "opposition attention to youth will be amplified in early 1986. The N D P Task Force on Youth, chaired by critic Howard McCurdy, and the Senate Special Committee o n Youth, headed by Senator Jacques Hebert, will release reports within weeks of each other."

Government decision not to fund youth ministry applauded by CFS OTTAWA (CUP) --The Canad ~ a nFederat~onof Students, a nat~onallobby group, has congratulated the federal government on ~ t sd e c ~ s ~ oto n no longer fund the Mmstry of State for youth In a March 5 press release, C F S chaw Barb Donaldson s a ~ dthe mmstry was useless, spending $24 m ~ l h o nlast year on cheerleadmg and conferences for Tory youth The mmsters has not spoken for the concerns of youngcanad ~ a n s , Donaldson s a ~ d "At least the budget reflects t h ~ " s

Asked outside the House of Commons d the ministry, not mentioned in spending estimates recently, would survive, Secretary of State Benoit BOUchard said a decision would come by the end of the month. "The financial operations of the government end on March 3 1. We will see at the beginning of April. what will happen (to the ministry)," Bouchard siad. The national French television channel TVA reported last week that the government plans to abolish the Ministry of Youth o n March 17, the day

after the national Conservative convention. Stewart Braddick, special assistant to the Minister, said the 24 people who work for Champagne have plenty t o do, even though they administer no, thing. He said he is workmg on scheduling correspondence (he is the only Anglophone in the office) and writing and researching briefing papers. "We're still waiting for an announcement from Mr. Bouchard (on the ministry's fate)," he said.

For the some 2,000 people who attended the “Save South Moresby Wilderness Celebration” in Toronto on Monday, the night will not soon be forgotten. If the sight of four native Haidas thumping a hide drum and wailing eerily at the front of the dignified St. Paul’s Anglican Church was not enough to make people aware that something special was happening, noted Canadian author Pierre .Burton, pointed it out declaring that “This is an historical moment, part of an enormous change in attitude that started in the 60s.” Calling the logging of the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia “an act of vandalism,” Berton spoke out against “long term destruction for short term gains.” Miles Richardson Jr., President of the Council of the Haida Nation, presented a moving plea for the perpetuation of the islands in their natural state. islands that have been home to

It’s a fight for everyone.” Minister of Indian and Northern Development, David’ Crombie, insisted that we “speak out for the rights of aboriginal people in this country.” He added that “For generations we have raised Canadians in ignorance of the many peoples and cultures in this land.” Ten UW students, from various faculties, attended the rahy. They joined hundreds of people from across Canada, some of whom had arrived on the “Save South Moresby Caravan,” a train travelling from Halifax to Vancouver gathering support along the way. The ride to Toronto was arranged by WPlRG’s Doug MacKinlay, who said the purpose of the rally was to “increase public awareness of the plight of the Haida and to preserve the ecology of the Queen Charlotte Islands.” ’ Fourth year anthropology

In general, he said, other countries have about twice as many staff at their institution. Bryden echoed the sentiments of the panel, saying she is disappointed with the government’s response to the problem. “We have to recognize that if underfunding continues, Ontario universities may be reduced to secondclass institutions.” She said the current emphasis on student loans versus grants leaves students saddled with a heavy debt load on graduation, and that this may be keeping students from entering post-secondary education. She said that, so far, the provincial government has made no response to 15 NDP proposals for reform of the Ontario Student Assistance . -Plan. In general, the proposals call for a relaxing of qualification requirements and stress on grants instead of loans. Bryden also stated her opposition to incidental fees, calling the computer fee at UW “a form of extra-billing which should be outlawed.*’ Questioned on the computer fee, Wright said “1 would be very happy to see it go, but it would mean the university would have to lay off a lot of people and shut down the labs.” He said the fee was the “least objectionable’* alternative to closing services.

He also said that underfund-. ing forces industry to look outside Canada for talent, relating one experience at 3-M where staff for a research,lab had to be brought in from the U.K., and-the U.S. because no research related to the project was being undertaken in Canada. Duxbury said funding for research is very important because “research at universities is without any shade of doubt a basic building block” where innovations evolve. He noted 85 per cent of 3M’s sales involve products that were not in existence five years ago. Certosimo of the Ontario Federation of Students said that U W is a leader in the underfunding debate because of the controversial computer fee instituted here last fall. “We’ve got to make Mr. and Mrs. Jones realize the hopes they have for their children depend on funding,” he said. “Underfunding means that those with the ability, but without the means, cannot afford the education they need, and that we need them to get.” Wright said the general indifference to the underfunding problem,“seems stupid.*’ “Most critically,” he said, “is that students and their parents are indifferent.” Wright pointed to

NEWS . Universities .losing scientists to greener pastures in the U.S. -. --

by Ken Magor . of Candian University

Press

TORONTO (CUP) -- Canadian scientists are warning that an exodus of faculty members to the United States is imminent unless the research climate here improves. And some suggest that the federal Tories, who vowed in pre-election speeches to put Canadian research on par with other countries, may have hastened the “brain drain” with their.Feb. 26 budget. Stuart Smith, the head of the Science Council of Canada, said that professors may not have left yet, but “I believe it’s going to happen and it’s going to happen in extremely substantial quantities.” He said while Canada languishes in a commodity-based economy, the U.S. is creating jobs for researchers because it has advanced to a knowledge-based economy -- developing new products and getting into areas like bio and high technology. Other Canadian scientists say faculty are liable to leave be&use the government has for 10 to 15 years failed to provide enough money for quality research. “It’s like running a small business,” said University of Toronto chemist Geraldine Kenney-Wallace as she described how scientists here have to search for funding sources. She estimates they spend 25 to 30 per cent of their time searching for money and, in her case, 50 per cent of the funding comes from U.S. industry and foundations. The bucks, it seems, are greener on the other side. Both industry and the universities south of the border have more money and the billions of dollars the Reagan administration plans to spend on Strategic Defence Initiative research will increase the amount. Gordon Slemon, U of T’s dean of engineering and applied

science, said although none of his staff though they haven’t been tempted. “I’m aware of excellent offers that have our key people,” he said. “I have put this and others as being our biggest problem

have left yet, it’s not as come to a large number of forward to government . .. for the future.”

The seductive thought of bright new labs and equipment is equally enticing for young scientists. Half of the 140 post-doctoral fellowships granted by the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council are currently held by Canadians studying in the U.S. NSERC president Gordon McNabb fears that, because of an increasingly frigid research climate in Canada, “probably we would find that we are not bringing back as many.” The Canadian Association of University Teachers isalso concerned about the shaky state of research and-development. While he has heard of only a few professors leaving, executive director Ed Anderson said the situation “doesn’t look promising, that’s for sure.” The association, which launched a major lobby for research funding in February, is afraid that, among other consequences, there won’t be enough qualified Canadian professors after many of the current crop retire in the 1990s. To an extent, that shortfall is already happening. U of T’s Slemon reports that some university positions have been vacant for 30 months -- in such key scientific areas as robotics, electronics and polymers. The -technology-briented University of Waterloo has, more than __ any other school, reason to fear a major brain drain. It has lost 13 faculty members since October: nine to the U.S., one to Britain and . three who have started up their own businesses.

OFL rep. calls for better pay equity laws by JoAnn Hutchison ,Imprint staff “‘The establishment of pay equity laws is the only means of achieving fairness for people in the workplace,” stated Sheila Trainer in an on-campus address last Thursday. Trainer is a member of the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) and external vice-president of the University of Guelph Staff Association. She spoke on March 6 in the Campus Centre as part of the International Women’s Day festivities. Trainer made reference to the Green Paper on pay equity, put out by the Ontario-government in November 1985. This paper suggests that an employer pay the same wages to men and women who are doing dissimilar work, if that work is of equal value to the employer, regardless of the gender of the worker. In order to implement pay equity, jobs may need to be evaluated and compared to determine if they are equal in value to the employer. The Equal Pay Coalition (EPC) is opposed to the Green Paper because they strongly disagree with legislated job evaluation. Not all women would be covered by pay equity policy. It will only apply to workers in predominently female occupations which can be

compared with and are equal to jobs in male-predominated occupations. Hearings are now being held on the Green Paper. Trainer describes the hearings as “a consultive process to find out how people feel about it.” She explained, “we have had hearings in many different cities. We only have three more hearings to go with the last one on March 22.” Trainer urges the Women’s Advisory Council to “pursue the ,expansion of legislation to cover the broader public sector and private sector to help overcome the unfairness of the present system.” She quoted two examples of the unfairness of the present system. “A receptionist-typist at Guelph earns $240.72 per week. This job calls for grade 12 education, two years business training and skills. To compare this to a Technician 1, this job requires grade 10 education, no training, skills or experience but the job rate is $274.53. These are both the lowest levels in each category and while there are many women working as technicians, it is valued as being a male occupation which makes a difference of $33.8 1 per week. Of course, we could all elect to become technicians but the work being

performed by the receptionist-typist still has to be done. To continue with the next comparison, a secretary earns $308.87 per week and requires grade 12, plus two years business training, whereas an agricultural assistant does not even require a grade 10 education norskills or experience. He earns $414.09 per week, a difference of $105,22*per week. While it has been known for females to work as agricultural assistants, it is still valued as a male occupation.” She stated that the support staff within the Confederation of Ontario University Staff Associations “endorses the positions taken by the EPC and many other women’s groups on pay equity, since pay equity can’t come soon enough for the women working in Ontario’s universities.” Trainer closed by saying that “you are not going to like yourself very much if you’give into a system that can treat you any way they want to.” She added, “if you accept the status quo, that’s what you’ll get .” Trainer urged those, present to challenge the status quo of pay ,inequity. “I have gotten myself into hot water several times, but I was never sorry I did.”

Engineers fund aids for physically disabled by Frank van Biesen Imprint staff This year’s graduating engineering class has decided to donate its graduation gift to a group of professors involved in the ‘development and design of aids for the physically disabled. .At Monday’s grad committee meeting, this option was chosen over two others: a contribution ,to Project Lift, and a scholarship for the disabled. The grad gift is traditionally a

financial contribution or equipment purchase by the graduating class for the improvement of the university. In the past, dohave been directed , nations primarily at improving facilities for UW’s disabled. Last year’s graduating class funded the installation of a hydraulic lift in The PAC pool. The funds for this year’s gift have been raised through the Iron Ring celebration, several video pubs, a compact disk player lottery, and

sales of a record made by students in the mechanical engineering class. Dr. George Soulis, a systems design professor, has supervised many projects under the category of aids for the physically disabled. Most of them are carried-out by fourth-year students, and on occasion, a master’s degree project is created, according to Soulis. He is very pleased with the donation. “Lots of. students have the de,

sign on paper, but don’t have the funds to build the equipment,” says Soulis. “This is where we’d like to apply the donation. “It’s a hard area in which to get funding, since the projects are very small,” says Soulis. As a result.of the low-volume, specific applications, “the technology is. not economically viable in industry.” The money will be put towards materials, computer time, and machine shop time. No salaries are naid out of the fund, he says. A Present funding sources for the program include industry, faculty members (who donate research income * earne’d through the Waterloo Research Institute), and students who wish to contribute to their own project. Over the last five years,

$36,000- has been spent on designing and fabricating aids for the disabled, says Soulis. Current projects include a specially geared wheelchair. for weaker people and for coping with steeper inclines; a feasibility study on ‘command-centre’ wheelchair, sporting peripherals such as an on-board telephone; an automatic frequency-adjusting hearing aid for people who are deaf only in certain frequency ranges; and an improved text reader/ voice synthesizer which reads regular text as well as mathematic expression and graphs and communicates them back to a visually impaired person. The graduating class has raised a total of $2,500 to date, according to Frank Valente, grad committee treasurer. This

amount is expected to increase. as record sales continue. The grad committee hopes to have a total of $5,000 by the end,of the term for the gift. Tom Fulton, a member of the qrad committee, feels the grad gift is beneficial in two ways. “It provides help where little is available (low-volume technical applications. for the disabled), and at the same time creates interesting. project work for fourth year and graduate engineering students.” Soulis agrees the projects also benefit the students who work on them. They learn to appreciate “the reality of designing something which has to work, and work for disabled people,” he says. “You have to obtain a much higher reliability for disabled people.”

C,hampagne should do honourabkthing It’s not often that an obscure, junior minister in the federal cabinet makes the front page. Recently, though, Canada’s Minister of State for Youth has done just that. But the notoriety Andree Champagne has been receiving has not been flattering. Firstly, when the federal government’s budgetary estimates were released two weeks ago it seemed as if the Youth Minister’s department had disappeared overnight. It isn’t listed; it has no specific programs to administer. This left some to wonder why Champagne still receives a cabinet minister’s salary of $92,630, plus an $18,700 expense allowance, when* she really has little to do. Not all are disappointed by the government’s decision to stop funding the youth ministry. The Canadian Federation of Students have said that Champagne has not been a good representative for Canadian youth anyway. As CFS chair Barb Donaldson said, “At least the budget reflects this.” I The elimination of the youth ministry’s budget is not the only cut in youth-related spending. A more important and much more hurtful cut is Ottawa’s decision to axe the Katimavik programme. Katimavik provided Canadian youth with the opportunity to gain valuable life skills, see their own country and meet other youths from across Canada. While the government has killed Katimavik, a programme which has

shown it works, they spent $24 million last year on International Year of Youth “events,” which were little more than public relations exercises. Senator Jacques Hebert, a founder of the Katimavik programme, is upset enough at its demise that he has been on a hunger strike outside the Senate chambers. He has been receiving support from former Katimavik participants who think the programme is worth saving. UW student Dave Lawson has recently left for Ottawa to give his support to Hebert. Along with these wholesale cuts in youth spending, Champagne has been embarrassed by a letter of hers which was leaked last ?eek. In a letter to colleagues, she suggested that the taxpayer’s money could be used to recruit Canadian youth to the Progressive Conservative party. When this was first disclosed, Champagne denied the authenticity of the letter. The next day, however, she -admitted that it was authentic and apologized for her indiscretion.

is all fine, and on the surface seems to be a reasonable request, but tolerance is perhaps the most valuable quality a person can develop, and the most rare. Think twice if you are making a demand you could not meet yourself. If you could, then you have already come to understand that a genuinely tolerant person would never make such a great demand on another. \ I have stressed that groups and individuals must take it upon themselves to eliminate the stereotypes from which they suffer. This suggestion is made-from a pragmatic standpoint, it should not imply that no onus rests with the discriminating parties. They should certainly recognize the efforts of those who fight discrimination, and acknowledge the rate at which the stereotypical premises are falling. Many rights activists ask nothing more - which is perhaps the best approach for them. I say this because to ask more might be too much. The ability to perceive another, without bias or preconception, is not a virtue which exists in our society, in-any group. Nor do I expect it to develop for some time. (If you feel the urge to contest this statement, I suggest you take time for some deep introspection before you voice your disagreement.) In conclusion, I therefore advise anyone who is unhappy with his or her present stereotype; be patient and become yourself, a contradiction to the stereotypical premise. If these words have offered a different perspective to anyone, I - will be very pleased. I would like to believe that the Forum section can be a vehicle through which we may intelligently discuss the issues and make attempts to enlighten or learn from each other, not simply a tool with which we can call each other jerks.

Greek students take notice To the editor: If there is anvbodv from the Greek Student Association who is interested in picking up their mail, please go to the Federation Office (CC235).

In the Imprint of two weeks ago (Feb. 28 issue), Paul Van Arrgon took this column to task for being “fun to read, but too tame and vapid.” Of me, the columnist, he said: “I don’t want to sound overly critical or snide, but since he’s the one doing the talking, perhaps he should say something.” I do not know what would constitute a serious speech act for Paul Van Arrgon, because I do not know him; but with apologies to my other readers - who may find this issue drab - 1 want to address Paul’s criticism seriously. My little “Talk About” column, which appears in the student newspaper, is one I applied to write when I was appointed chaplain to UW. So I write it as the chaplain, and as such it is a part, though admittedly a small part, of the life of the university - even, we.might say, of the religious life of the university. The column is not religious in tone, I’ll admit that, but it does attempt to smuggle in a spiritual slant on the things I talk about. Now, the functioning of a university is dependent on a great many primary relations - economic, political, familial, institutional, architectural, and pedagogical practices but these diverse elements all coalesce into U W only because of something which has been called “the idea of the university.” But this concept, which administrators, professors, and students share to some extent, is itself secondary to something else. And this final unifying factor defies description in either objective or mentalistic terms. It is rather a certain currently acceptable way of talking (describing, discussing, professing, announcing) which is taken seriously in the domain of higher eduation. It is no doubt related to what Paul thinks, or I think, or what Doug Wright thinks, but our ways of thinking no more organize all

Violence against gays: ’ keeping us in line by Alan Yoshioka High Park, Toronto, June 21, 1985. “Let’s beat up a fag!” (It’ll be fun!) Five teenaged boys chased Kenneth Zeller to his car,. kicked and punched his,head and chest. Zeller died that night in the hospital. The media’s search for an explanation concentrated on peer pressure, beer, and family situations. It seemed almost irrelevant that the boys’ violence had been directed.at the sk.ull.of a, “fucking faggot,‘* rather than, say, at a storefront window. An expert psychiatrist witnesstestified that the boys were not homophobic. After all, they would “throw a firecracker under the car of a heterosexual couple making love.” (Good analogy.) *** Vancouver, August 3, 1985. A 17-year old attacked Bill Kains with a straight razor, carving his name in Kains’ chest while he was still alive, cutting off Kains’ nose and one ear, gouging out both eyes, inflicting, in total, 47 wounds. In his defence, the youth alleged that Kains had made a pass at him. His sentefice - three years. *** Bishop’s University in Quebec, February 13, 1983. After the student newspaper pulished a lesbian and gay supplement, a gay activist was beaten with a hockey stick by three men. The student council president suggested that the victim of the attack had brought it on himself by being too openly gay*** Much of what feminists have said about rape holds also for queer-bashing. The vast majority of attacks are never reported, The same tactic of blaming the victim is used: “What was he doing in the park anyway?” or “They were asking for it”. The police are often of no help. If the case ever makes it to court, one can wonder who’s on trial: the assailant or the victim. One theory deserves to be mentioned and discarded: that queer-bashers are really just repressed homosexuals; this neatly reduces violence against homosexuals to a “homosexual problem”, for which heterosexual society bears no responsibility. Andrew Hodges asks, in With Downcast Gays: ’ Aspect of Homosexual Self-Oppression, “Are Paki-bashers then repressed Pakistanis?” One danger of reciting a list of incidents like this is that, by breeding fear, it can unwittingly cooperate with the goal of intimidation that underlies violence against minorities. The threat of violence serves to “keep us in our place.” We must reject the apolitical “solutions” that are offered us, ie. ’ Women, stay home at night, Gays, stay in the closet. We too must “take back the night.”

the factors that make up the university than do the various social and economic forces. What organizes the institutional relations and the thinking is finally the system of rules which govern what sort of talk (and which talkers) can be taken seriously. It is the rules governing what can -be seriously said that determines whatis said (and by whom), and this in turn determines university life as we know it.. So our focus narrows now to the specific question: Who can be taken seriously? Who has the right to speak with the presumption that what he, or she, says is true? And this in turn leads back to the more general system of relations that makes possible the formation and transmission of serious speech acts by serious speakers. L

“Medical statements cannot come from anybody,” savs Michel Foucault in The Archaeology of Knowledge; “their value, efficacy, even their therapeutic powers . . . cannot be dissociated from the statutorily defined person who has the right to make them, and to claim for them the power to overcome suffering and death.”

I

While I would not make so strong a’claim for my weekly utterances , there exists in the “Let’s Talk About. . . ” column _-__the possibility of a serious speech act. Perhaps, over the long haul of the year, a single serious speech act will occur, which even Paul Van Arrgon can take seriously to heart. (The Rev. Dr. Tom York is United Church Chaplain to UW and WLU, His office is at St. Paul’s College.)

Apathy - A Canadian Malady by Lars Wilke “Would anyone be terribly upset if I continued with lectures next Wednesday?,” asked one professor recently, referring to the proposed shutdown of the university to allow for a protest .march against underfunding. The class stared blankly back at him. A few chuckles passed between friends as if to say, “You must be joking, me freeze my buns off for this damned place?’ The professor, however, was only being realistic. He knew that even if he cancelled the class, nobody would participate 1’in the protest march and, therefore, it would be a meaningless gesture. He knew that, like most other Canadians, the students in his class couldn’t care less. What’s more, if they did care, they would be even less likely to do anything about it. Life goes on. Hallelujahs were sung after the recent Federation of Students election, as 29.6 per cent of the eligible votes were cast. A record high for the past ten years! A victory in itself! Why, only 70 per cent of the students couldn’t be bothered to make a decision, as opposed to the usual 80 per cent. A stunning statistic. On March 21st, the Athletic Injuries Centre will close because ,of a lack of support from the University. The service provided by the centre was recognized for its excellence and necessity. But besides a few letters and editorials, no steps have been taken to save the clinic. The silence of the students and faculty who benefited from it translates into an unearned approval from the university’s inaction. Most Canadian students, when travelling abroad, are surI prised to see how politically aware and even active their counterparts elsewhere are. By the same token, visitors to Canada often comment on the indifference of Canadians to important issues. Activists in Canada are always treated with a certain amount of disdain and suspicion, even when they represent legitimate causes. Canadians are characterized by being politically docile to an extreme. When governments are elected, it goes without saying that they don’t have to carry through on their promises because no one really cares enough to do anything about it. Sometimes governments go so far as to do the exact opposite of what they have promised. Other than some loud bellyaching, no concrete action is taken. As a result, governments are not answerable to the people and are free to be self-serving, ineffective, and wasteful. Activism for its own sake is a destructive force. The abscence of any activism is equally dangerous. People must unite to speak for their rights and against injustices or be satisfied with the fate chosen for them by others.

. by Anne Fleming The Toronto International Women’s Day Committee this year directly addressed racism, taking as their slogan, “Women Say No to Racism: From Toronto to South. Africa.” I have heard objections made to feminism because it is a narrow cause (like “How can you be so involved in feminism while there are so many larger issues like world peace, racism, poverty, starvation, and environmental destruction?“). My answer to this is threefold. First, the oppression of women is no small problem - it is-world-wide, and must be fought. Second, becoming aware of, and combating one type of oppression, opens one’s eyes to the ways in which other groups are oppressed, and the ways in which we are oppressed together. Third, feminists do address the issues of world peace (witness Greenham Common), environmental destruction and racism; demonstrated by the theme of IWD this year. Racism both within and without the women’s movement has long been a feminist issue. American feminism largely has its roots in the abolitionist movement. Women like -Sarah and Angelina Grimke had to fight the patriarchy which said women should not speak in public, before they could fight slavery, their initial intention. Women in the black civil rights movement have found they needed to fight sexism within their movement as well as racism outside of it. Barbara Smith, a black American feminist, explains why racism is a feminist issue: The reason racism is a feminist issue is easily explained by the inherent definition of feminism. Feminism is the political theory and practice that struggles to free all women: 7 women of colour, working-class women, poor women, disabled women, lesbians, old women - as well as white, economically privileged, heterosexual women. Anything less than this vision of total freedom is not feminism, but merely female self-aggrandizement. White feminists, however, have hesitated to speak of racism. I know I have hesitated to do so out of a reluctance to speak for others, and also out of ignorance. In the same way that women’s writings have been systematically “lost,” the, experience of women‘of colour has been ignored. The history and literature I learned in school belonged to white males. I have a lot of catching up to do. But as I do so, I keep in mind Adrienne Rich’s warning not to take racism as a theoretical problem, not to*distance myself from it. Mary Daly, in Gyn/Ecology, also requires that women not distance themselves from the atrocities committed against women in cultures “foreign” to our own. Having.a social consciousness of racism, we tend not to condemn other cultures for their misogynist acts out of fear of being called a racist. Thus African genital mutilation (clitoriodectomies done with shards of glass, vaginas sewn up to ensure “purity”), and Indian bride-burning, become cultural ideosyncracies. They are discussed academically and anthropologically, denying the gut-wrenching reality of what is being done to women. It is the gut-wrenching reality in the writings of women like Alice Walker, Toni Morrison and Joy Kogawa which make women say ‘-NO” to racism, from Waterloo to South Africa..

Majorities can a be tyrannical too

To the editor: _(re: Blair MacDonald’s letter on homosexuality). Dear Blair: 1 do agree with you. The majority of straight people are disgusted by the homosexual act of lovemaking. .The majority of Nazis were disgusted by Jews. The majority of white SoutK Africans , are disgusted by black South Africans. Myself and many others are disgusted with you. In fact, every straight person I know is disgusted with you. I guess we hang around with different people. Does this make us right and you wrong due to the fact that I perceive my majority opinion is better than yours? No, indeed. Tyranny of the majority is just as hateful as tyranny of the minority. In your first letter, you described yourself as “normal.” Good

Lord, if your bigotry is what you consider normal, how has the human race survived without becoming homogenous, blank-faced, ignorant, robots. In your second letter you described yourself as “an egalitarian.” That is the last thing you are Blair, because you judge people on their sexual orientation. Egalitarianism does not merely apply to the workplace, but also to the basic human right to be treated as a human being by other human beings. You do not do this. Lori Ciaralli does not owe you apology, you owe every straight person, including myself, an apology for grouping us into your narrow-minded world view. Darlene Gage 1B Man-Environment Studies

Because of the enthusiasm of a number of UW students and faculty, the current DTA Selection Committee is faced with a difficult task; both the quality and quantity of material submitted this year was outstanding. This means that a number of deserving ‘teachers will have to be passed over for the award this time.

IMan cannot be reduced to mathematical model=

Science has become-d new religion J. Schroeder Department of Civil Engineering Religion is faith in God or supernatural powers. A n&v world religion is faith in the 0bvers.e of the supernatural: a powerful knowledge which is hidden in nature such that its mystery may be deciphered through mathematical methods of man on earth. The new religion is thought dut in schools, colleges, and universities all over the world and usually conforms to cosmism, Hinduism, Buddhism, pantheism, communism, socialism, and materialsim, but often contradicts Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Science: A Mathematic Approach to Nature , 1 Greek and modern sciences were originally free from religiosity because the philosophy of both was merely a mathematical approach to nature. And one can still use today all of the physical and most of the biological sciences in that context. Science enters t’he realm of mystery whenever it mimics reality through its numbers. Aristotle called this making of a reality metaphysics, w$ich means beyond science. Human Nature: Not Mathematical The so-called social, political, and psychological sciences harbor the new universal religion, becaue they are based‘on the belief that even man can be known through mathematical methodologies. The latter can not account for the human spirit, and as a consequence, the human mind is considered to be solely an automatic brain and nervous system, both of which are analyzed like a motor or compu‘ter. The above three sciences are at fault, because the spiritual faculties of man are real and comprise free will, reason, faith, charity, hope, joy, knowledge of good and evil, etc., all of which make man independent of mathematical causality, probability, and uncer* tainty. Mathematics is an Abstract Art Mathematics is an art and consists fundamentally of geometry and algebra. It is an art form because geometrical shapes and algebraic equations possess beauty. Furthermore, mathematical concepts are abstract. For example, in geometry a line has length but no breadth, points are intersections of lines, and planes are of zero thickness and bordered by lines, which render both invisible and thus imaginary and/or abstract. Graphics merely permit us to represeni invisible lines and points by a visible stroke of a pen or a dot respectively. Reality versus Human Imagination In what follows, the material world, which can be observed by the senses, will be called real, and the invisible, abstract world, which man uses to reason mathematically about nature, will be considered imaginary. A scientist may work continually in his abstract world of numbers and symbols representing lines, points, surfaces, distances, masses, forces, gravities, velocities, moments, times, etc. It is thus understandable that a scientist assigns a reality to the numerical world of science, which appears to be greater than the real observable world, because the spiritual mind of man seems to be capable to freely invent, vary, combine, extrapolate, and experimentally validate the mathematical ideas almost endlessly. However, the scientific laws and codes reflect the nature of mathematics rather than the true nature of the material,world. Paradoxes of Modelling Nature Science today embraces such complex tiathematical models as atoms, continuous mass, electromagnetic and gravitatibnal fields and waves, quanta, genetics. These models often contradict each other. The best known paradox is the mathematical wave and quantum (particle) model of light. In the atomic model matter is mostly emptiness whereas the model of continuous mass renders matter without empty spaces; Religiosity in Physical Science on Earth If one accepts the above contradictions as part of a knowledge which is hidden in nature, then the science of nature is self-contradictory and beyond human understanding. This generates a mysterious view even of the physics on earth and gives rise to a new world religion, which of course inv’dlves the belief that the mathematical models of science are real. Relativistic Cosmology: Mostly Faith in Science Fiction The mathematical approach has been extrapolated into the heavens even beyond the observable world, and, numbers have been generated by computers to answer such questions as: how old and distant are the heavens? Is there a probability of life other than on Earth? Even though there are numbers in answer to these questions, there is no justification except by faith that these nunbers have any meaning whatsoever, because there is no warranty that numbers reveal the true nature of the observable world. Today’s relativistic cosmos is not only based on the projection that the universe has the physics of man on earth, but also on a of two contradictions: the mechanical mathematical synthesis fixity of points in space and relativistic mobility of all things. This has generated a cosmic vastness whibh is mostly science fiction, for *no man will ever travel far enough to verify its existence. Cosmism: Faith is What is Mathematically Impossible The vast relativistic distances calculated for the cosmos led to the extrapolation of enormous ages for the heavens and cradled cosmos, which is faith ii evolution of the world by an infinite series of improbable accidents over immense time spans. Obviously, cosmism is impossible from the mathematical point of view. World Religion, Philosophies, and Mathematical Religiosity In Buddhism the observable world is an illusion, and this concept is in agreement with the new universal religion which holds that

nature is not as man sees it but as mathematical abstractions describe it. Examples are the atomic structure in which the solid matter is mostly emptiness, or general relativity, in which the space has a fourth dimension. The latter can not be represented even graphically. The vast numbers obtained for the ago of a relativistic cosmos agree with Hinduism which holds that the world is very old. The Bible reveals that light, life on earth, the sun, moon and stars are a recent creation. Pantheism teaches that God and the universe, includini man, are the same thing. This agrees with the concept of a self-existidg universe and a self-existing knowledge which is hidden in nature. Communism, is based on the belief that there is no God, who is spirit, and no moral code given by God to man. This conforms with cosmism which cannot explain where matter comes from and usually holds that matter and its mathematical laws always. existed without God, and man is nothing but living, mathematical matter which has no spirit. Materialism also holds that matter is the only reality. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam hold that God is spirit and a personality who created the universe, and both God and man, who was created in the image of God, are outside of mathematical causality, probability, and uncertainty. A Separation of Science and Christianity A Christian may use most of today’s science as what is was meant to be originally: a mathematical approach to nature without assign-

ANC supp.6rts huinan rights c To the editor: Tim Moggridge’s letter of March 7 (“Better alternatives than the ANC exist”) ma’kes interesting reading. Moggridge reports Yusaf Saloojee, a Canadian representative of South Africa’s “most popular revolutionary movement,” as stating that any government founded upon the basis of one man/one vote system is legitimate even if the new regime is ‘&aone-party-state Marxist d.ictatorship.” Now, given the standard conditions on voting (free, fair, secret, etc.), a one man/ one vote system always installs a popular government and, thus, cannot install a dictatorship, whether Marxist or not. Who is responsible for this seeming inconsistency? 1 can see two options: either Saloojee, in fact, said this, or, the word ‘dictatorship’ is a creation of Mr. Moggridge’s imagination, probably due to some sort of uncontrolled ideological ‘reflex’ which compels one ‘to attach the word ‘dictatorship’ after ‘Marxist? (we all know the popular puzzle in which the puz& arises becaUse we tend to associate ‘female’ with ‘nurse*). People who listened to Saloojee (I couldn’t make-it) may be able to judge the first option. However, internal evidence from the rest of Moggridge’s letter tends to confirm the second option. Mr, Moggridge goes on to say that he (he uses ‘we’) is opposed to apartheid not because “it is minority rule” but bqcause apartheid denies (a certain list of) human freedoms to blacks.

To the editor: It was great to see all the support for the underfunding march on Wednesday, March 12, and to see the enthusiasm of the marchers. Although it was a positive sign to see UW President Douglas Wright marching with the staff, faculty and students, we must remember that this is the person who implemented the computer fee. It is a constant source of amazement to us how short the memory of the student population is. At the rally at the end of the march the enthusiastic chanting of Wright’s name tended to promote Wright as a leader against underfunding when, in reality, he is one of the major contributers to underfunding at this university. One of Wright’s reasons for implementing the computer fee was supposedly to increase student awareness of the underfunding crisis. The success of the underfunding march shows that student awareness has indeed risen. Therefore, let’s see Wright rescind the computer fee and treat the students as equal partners in the udderfunding crisis, as opposed to victimizing them further! The computer fee is not the solution, rather it-is just further exacerbating the problem!

to Mr. Moggridge, it is possible to have a minority rule while not denying human freedoms to the majdrity -a benevolent autocracy? The whole-point of democracy, on the.other. hand, is not to depend on the benevolence of rulers as a natural grace, but to have the right to control that rule and the content of the benevolence. Thus, one who is committed to the one man/ one vote system, is automatically xommitted to this human right and all the rights which are required to support this fundamental one. How doesit follow then that “the ANC does not- represent these freedoms’* while granting at the same time that the ANC is “South Africa’s most popular revolutionary organization’? The trouble with Mr. Moggridge’s line of thinking is the follow- * ing. First, he gets stuck with the drop of the word ‘Marxist’. Next,, from ‘Marxist’, he coins the phrase ‘Marxist dictatorship.’ This leads him to deny that ANC represents human freedoms. But ANC, being the “most popular etc.‘, does, unfortunately, represent the blacks in South Africa. This reflects on the inability of the South African blacks to choose the proper platform for their human rights. Thus, the burden falls on Mr. Moggridge to come up with the correct recommendation: continue to invest, reject the ANC and, finally, probably following Jerry Falwell and his ilk; support the lnkatha alternative.

ing realities to the abstract numbers. This approach removes all scientific mysteries, since contradicting hypotheses simply indicate that more than one mathematical approach fits the same observable phenomenon, a philosophical view which was held ,-by Plato and is called phenomenology. If one assigns to abstract ideaba mode of reality which may even supersede observable ph_enomena, one accepts the metaphysical philosophy, which is called ontology and wasdefined by Aristotle. It is not surprising that Aristotelian science survived about two thousand years because it was thought to be real. One may believe that mathematical abstractions have a real counterpart in nature. 1 do not, since it often contradicts my Christian faith and obscures the veracity of science. One of the indicators that science has become a religion is the fanaticism by which some people defend it. This fanaticism is based on self-complacency and the belief that science is always right in spite of the contradiction and mysteries it has created. Christians often believe in the new universal religion or parts of it, because for them nature is the handiwork’of God, and man created in the image of God is thought to be capable of understanding God’s creation, even though the human understanding may contradict the world of God revealed in the Bible. But since the fall, man is mortal and the finitude of man permits justification by faith only, be it faith in God and his son Jesus Christ or the mysteries created‘by man’s finite knowledge. (J.

A

Panel agrees that differential be hard to eliminate ’

,

by Gary Timoshenko , Imprint staff The 570 international students on campus face a tuition battle which affects the ability of many to continue their education. Last Thursday, as part of International Student Week, a panel discussion was held on the topic, Differential Fees: Yes or No. Jonathan Bremmer, vice president of the Graduate Students Union, University of Toronto; J.D. Lawson, professor of computer science at UW and Tom Fulton, a 4th year UW engineering student, discussed the current differential fee situation before a small but concerned audience.

Acid rain causes early deterioration by Hugh Westrup Canadian Science News A team of biologists from the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans has discovered that acid rain destroys animal life in fresh-water lakes much sooner than expected. The biologists, supervised by Dr. David Schindler, chose a small lake in northwestern Ontario in 1976. They gradually added sulphuric acid to it over the next eight years in order to mimic what happens when a healthy lake is exposed to year after year of acid rainfall. After only three years, when the lake had become just moderately acidic, opossum shrimp and fathead minnows began to die off, Schindler says. Shortly, the crayfish population began declining too. Schindler describes the changes as “catastrophic”. Without crayfish, minnows and shrimp to eat, the large fish in the lake (trout, white sucker) grew skinny and weak, and many resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. As the lake got even more acidic the big fish failed to replenish their numbers. Scientists are not sure why, but young fish simply don’t mature into adults when the water reaches a certain acidity level. .Scientists measure a lake’s acid content by its pH value. A healthy lake has a pH between 6 and 7, but as acid builds up in the water, the pH value drops. Some lakes, such as those near Sudbury, Ontario, have been polluted with so much acid rain that their pH is down around 4. Schindler says another Fisheries and Oceans study estimates that 150,000 lakes east of the Ontario-Manitoba border have a pH of less than 6; 14,000 of them have a pH of less than 4.7. The study estimates between one-third and one-half of these lakes were made acidic by acid rain, he .-adds. (Some lakes are naturally acidic.) Scientists have generally believed that. animal

Frlday,

life is not endangered until the pH drops to about 5. But Schindler’s findings show that oppossum shrimp and fathead minnows died off at 5.8. “The shrimp were gone in one year,” he says. When the pH dropped to 5.6, the lake’s crayfIish started disappearing; they were completely gone by the time the pH had dropped to 5.1. When the pH dropped to 5.4, the trout and white sucker stopped reproducing. Schindler noted other interesting changes in the lake. For one thing, the water turned crystal clear at the top. Ordinarily, lake water looks slightly murky because it contains particles of decaying vegetation that flow in from streams and bogs. But acid pollution in.a lake neutralizes the colour of this decaying vegetation. “It’s the same as what happens when you pour lemon juice in your tea,” says Dr. Schindler. “The citric acid in the lemon. lightens the brown colouring in the water.” As the upper layers of the lake got clearer, more sunlight penetrated the deeper layers of the lake, says Dr. Schindler. This led to an increase in the number of tiny plants (plankton) growing deep down. There was also an explosive growth in green algae, which formed large, dense mats on the sides of many of the rocks along the shore. Schindler says the changes in the lakes were definitely due to increased acidity and not to any increase in aluminum. Recently, some scientists have speculated that acid rain is harmful because it falls on land, leaching aluminum out of the soil and carrying it into lakes. But there was very little increase in aluminum in the experimental lake. because the acid had been added directly to the lakewater. After eight years, Schindler decided to stop adding acid to the lake. “Otherwise, the fish would have completely died off,” he says. His team is now studying how well the lake recovers.

Council of Ontario Universities, said at their next meeting there will be a proposal to return $5 million in differential fees to the students in the form of scholarships. The government would have to match this with a $5 million reduction in differential fees. This means the universities would have to make up $5 million, despite already chrome underfunding. The universities hope this will show how serious they feel about the issue. Lawson said current differential fees are above the average cost of teaching one extra student. He said that cost is currently $3,100. Also, he added that we have an educational debt to foreign students. A great number of our leaders were educated abroad and many professors. at UW are from abroad or were at least partially educated there. Lawson also noted foreign students cannot vote, they cannot get jobs while they are here, and they have very few opportunities for scholarships. He said the general public and student body is very apathetic towards their plight. As Tom Fulton noted, “the average student is not going to be concerned when he hears other students having to pay more while his tuition stays the same.” He saib other program-mes should not be cut to help foreign students. He likes U-W President Doug Wright’s suggestion that scholarship, money for foreign students could come from theCanadian International Development Agency. Both Bremmer and Lawson said International Student quotas could be a solution to part of the problem. Lawson said he did not see the need for quotas in the arts, though, as their is amfile space for any student who applies. Everyone on the panel agreed that differential fees will be a lot harder to get rid of than they were to put in place.

Deanne Farrar 3rd Year, Math “If government funding was increased it would eliminate the instituted computer fees and locker fees.”

Todd McAlary 4th Year, Geological Engineering “School takes all my available income. It doesn’t leave me money for things I want to buy because tuition fees are increasing so rapidly. Incidental fees are an insult.”

Servejit Bansal 1st Year, Science “I think the residences and the campus centre could be better maintained. I’m sure if the university had more funding they could maintain the buildings better.”

Lynda Hollran 3rd Year, Sociology “It bothers me that underfunding will prevent students of similar financial status as myself from pursu: ing academic studies.”

Jeff Terryberry 3rd Year, Bio-Chemistry “It propagates the vicious circle of impoverishment. Refer to the novel, Glass Bead Game, by Herman Hesse.”

Computer integrated manufacturing

Waterloo centre to aid industry In an attempt to improve the manufacturing process, UW has formed The Waterloo Centre for Computer Integrated Manufacturing (WATCI M -pronounced WATsim). Dr. William C. Lennox, dean,of engineering, annouced last week the appointment of Dr. Melvyn J. Marple as director of WATCIM. Marple is at Waterloo under a loan agreement between the university and IBM Canada Ltd. He is to serve for the next two years. “Computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) is what Canadian industry is going to have to get into if we are to compete with Japan and the other established and emerging industrial nations,” Lennox said. “This is more than just automation or robotization; it includes design, production planning, management, marketing. . . even the financial aspects of manufacturing.’ It’s a matter of integrating the various components -- the islands of automation in manufacturing operation -- in a comprehensive way. CIM is an overall strategy.” He said universities all over North America are interested’ in developing CIM programs.

“We at UW have all the essential parts. We have expertise in robotics, machine vision, CAD/CAM, flexible manufacturing systems, production automation, process control, and management sciences with a focus on the management of technology,” Lennox noted, “what we have been needing is an umbrella-type organization such as WATCIM . . . and we have to make sure itc will relate very closely to the problems of industry.” This is why UW looked to the industrial sector for WATCIM‘s first director.

Marple. This is the first time an industry-seconded director has headed such a project at Waterloo. Marple, who completed his doctorate in engineering at the University of Kansas, has been with IBM for 17 years. During much of this time he has been heavily involved with the development and manufacturing areas and particularly with small and medium-sized computers and peripherals. IBM is a leader in automated manufacturing with several state-of-the,-art plants, fully automated from (design to end-product manufacture.

Will serve as industrial liaison “IBM has invested significantly in these concepts for many years,” Marple noted. He is looking forward to the WATCIM challenge. He sees his new job as primarily a matter of helping the university acquire a “strategic direction” in connection with CIM. He will also serve as a liaison between the university and industry. According to Lennox the “liaison” work Marple will undertake may include arranging for industrial visitors to come to the campus to participate in leading-edge research, arranging visits of UW faculty members to industry to work as consultants or in industrial labs, offering short courses to industry, and integrating graduate and undergraduate student programs with-industry. “Our model will be the university’s Institute for Computer Research (ICR),” said Lennox, “which has been most successful. In fact, while Dr. Marple is on campus he will serve as IBM’s representative to the ICR.” Marple is in Uvlr’s Pollock Hall, but WATCIM will move into the new William G. Davis Computer Research Centre when it is completed later this year.

NDP report says youth want lifeskills by Glenn Rubinoff Imprint staff

that “Education and training must lead to jobs --jobs that exist now and in the future.” Social realities of unemployment among youth has resulted in a host of problems including poverty, ‘suicide, alcoho!ism, drug, . abuse, prostitution and crime. As one youth said in a presentation to the task force, “If you can’t get a job, you pull a job.” Another said “I a\m not a prostitute, 1 just worked as a prostitute because I needed the money.” Many youths interviewed feel alienated because of the lack of an immediate role in our society. Participating in decisions which affect them is important to the youth of this country, according to the task force. The highlights of the recommendations of the Task Force on Youth includes a program called “Youth Prospects” to provide new job training and education opportunities for Canadian youth between the ages of 18 and 22. With a set amount of funding for two years, each youth can select one of four options including two years of either job training, entrepreneurship, life skills training or postsecondary education. Recommendations for education focus on increased government funding to cover the costs of providing accessible, quality education for Canadians. Training initiatives supported by Canadian business have been recommended. to increase opportunities for youth. Recommendations aimed at furthering opportunities for jobs include tax breaks initiatives to develop Canadian-owned businesses and provide job opportunities for youth. Upgrading social services for youth is recommended by the task force to improve social conditions and provide for better personal outlooks on the future. The need for youth participation in national decisions that affect; their lives has resulted in task force recommendations to organize youth advisory councils on a regional and national basis to share ideas and give input into parliamentary policy decisions. Other recommendations called for a greater equality of opportunities for all youths living in Canada.

Lack of government financial support is the primary concern of many youths, according to a New Democratic Party Task Force on Youth report. Chairman Howard McCurdy, and NDP MP, travelled across Canada in the fall of 1985 to listen to young Canadians to find solutions to problems which affect them. The program resulted from-the United Nations designation of 1985 as InternationalYouth Year. The task force, which provided an insight into youth views on a variety of social, economic and political issues, has prepared ‘recom: mendations to be placed on Parliament’s agenda. The report revealed that youths want skills to live and learn and work. They feel that the present level of education does not provide this and there is a need for a “return to basics” approach. Post-secondary education was a concern of many students as they talked of the decline in quality of the university and college educations they receive. The report stated that “Skimping on post-secondary financing is affecting curriculum content and emphasis” and that “at the University of Waterloo, Ontario government restrictions on tuition are circumvented by a computer fee and incidental fees of similar magnitude.” . Young’people at the task force hearings stated their criticisms about government training. The report said- “One of the most common complaints voiced by young people about government training programs is that they simply don’t know about them.” Other barriers to access expressed were “widespread concern about inadequate levels of financial support, with governments seemingly unwilling to recognize that there are differing financial requirements,” said the report. Employment is another concern of youth. The Canadian Council on Social Development suggests that the real unemployment rate is 25% among young Canadians. Concerns expressed in the report are

Quebec gov’t may hike tuition MONTREAL (CUP) -- Students have been targeted as an extra source of government revenue as Quebec’s Liberals examine ways to reduce the provincial deficit by $1.5 billion. In a speech to the National Assembly on the economic state

of the province, Finance Minister Gerard D. Levesque suggested that university tuition fees be raised and cited Ontario’s nearly doubled tuition fees as justification. Levesque also recommended reducing the cost of education by increasing teacher workload or student/ teacher ratios. “It

tuition fees will rise, it is leaked in a noncommittal fashion to the media. The reasons these things are leaked is because they want to gauge whether negative student reaction will outbalance -public reaction,” said Peter Wheeland, student council vice-president, communicaUniversity. tions, Concordia “If students make a lot of noise now, then the government is going to say.. it is only a hypothesis. If the students are quiet, then there will be an increase,” he said. Quebec tuition fees, frozen at $570 a year since 1969, are the lowest in Canada.

The UW Villages Benefit Semi-Formal Committee donated $26,000 this week to Family and Children’s Services of Waterloo Region. This money was raised through a ticket raffle, a Village-sponsored night at Fed Hall, a folk night, a casino night and a semiformal dance held last fall. Peter Ringrose, executive director of Family and Children’s Services was surprised by how large the donation was. “We had no idea it would be that much,” he said. He. noted that the money

raised would help his organization’s plans to consolidate their five regional offices into one. Ringrose added that they would be able to design their new office to be “more appealing to clients, especially children.” Ringrose said they hope to move into a new building by the beginning of next year. Benefit Committee Chairman John Windisman said they exceeded their original goal of between $15,000 and $20,000. In the last six years, the Villages have raised, a total of $102,000 for charity.

After a speech’at McGill last fall, Premier Robert Bourassa told Canadian University Press in ‘an interview, “We plan to maintain the tuition freeze. With all the problems facing youth, we should find the money elsewhere and not increase the cost per student.”

TORONTO (CUP) -- Most of Ontario’s 15 post-secondary institutions, already filled to the limit are asking the government to help deal with a seven per . cent jump in enrolment at the end of the decade. The sudden one-to-three year swelling will be the result of a new high school structure which allow students to graduate in four, four and a half, or five years. The current fiveyear, grade 13 programme is being p.hased out and wil! mean two sets of students graduating at the same time. While the real crunch won’t hit until 1990-9 1, high schoblers I tram the new system could begin graduating as early as 1987. Unless the province gives universities the money to accommodate the extra students, competition for entrance scholarships and limited enrolment

The federal government also plans to match up to $155 million in private donations to the three councils. Naimark said the presidents are wary of this offer because it remains very vague. “Would it be donations to general funding, or for specific purposes?” Naimark asked. The presidents are requesting an urgent meeting with Finance Ministry officials to get a better idea of how the matching funds ,plan would work.

NEWS “The competition

Universities TGRONTO’ (CUP) -- When Queen’s University set out in 1984 to raise money from some 40,000 alumni, it hired students to call each and every graduate. At the same time, it sent out letters to a&mni asking them to contribute to the health of their alma mater. The strategy worked well; the university received pledges from 37 per cent of graduates who had never donated before, and from 68 per cent of those who had. The new “nhone-mail” technique is an’ example of the greater thought and effort being put into fundraising by universities across Canada. As governments cut back on their contribution, adminstrators are forced to look more and more to alumni, parents, corporations, foundations and other groups. “There’s no question about it. Any way you measure it, they’re more into (fundraising),” said Allen, Arlett, a long-time university development officer and

UW -are finalists in architecture competition

/

\

After two months of preparation, two teams of University of Waterloo architectural students have been chosen as finalists in the R-2000 Student Design Challenge. The five students on the two teams are among 29 finalist vying for the grand prizes -- two appenticeship positions with Select Home Designs of Vancouver. University of Waterloo finalists are: Team one: Montgomery King, Filippo Scarazza and, Team two: Peter Cizak, Andrew Jack and Elizabeth Ohi. More than 450 architecture and architectural technology students from 13 colleges and universities across the province took part in the R-2000 Student Design Challenge organized by the Ontario Ministry of Energy and co-sponsored by Fiberglas Canada and Select Home Designs. Established to provide future architects and designers with a knowledge and understanding of energy-efficient design and building techniques, the competition introduced the R-2000 standard for energy efficiency in new housing into the curriculum. “No one loses in this competition,” says Ontario Energy Minister Vincent G. Kerrio. ‘-Architectural students gain first-hand knowledge of the techniques available to achieve the R-2000 performance standard, and builders can count on having more knowledgeable designers of R2000 houses in the marketplace. And, of course, consumers then have a greater design selection of energy-efficient homes.” The 40 design entries were judged on several key factors. Each design had to meet the requirements of the R-2000 standard for energy efficiency in new home construction. The design also had to be suitable for an average-income family, economical, practical to build and marketable, with construction detailing that would ensure long-term performance and low maintenance. I Judges selected 12 winmng ,designs submitted from eight schools. The final rankings will be announced in Toronto later this month. Associate Professor Joe Somfay of UW’s architectural program says, “The realism of the project, as opposed to the theoretical aspects, has been of real value to the students in marketing, practical construction design and energy consiaerations.” “The R-2000 performance, standards for new housing were developed in the early 1980s. Using high levels of insulation, well-sealed construction, controlled ventilation syste.ms, multiglazed windows and small high-efficiency heating systems, heating cost can be reduced by up to 75 per cent over a conventional house. The features also add a greater level ot comtort and liveability to the R-2000 house,” explains Kerrio. Today, there are approximately 500 R-2000 homes throughout the province. “We’re very proud of the unique learning opportunity the R-2000 Student Design Challenge is providing to Ontario’s architectural students,” Kerrio added. Bursaries totalling $25,000 will be shared by the eight schools which submitted the 12 winning designs. The schooIs are: Algonqum College, and Carleton University, both of Ot, tawa; Confederation College, Thunder Bay; George Brown College, Toronto; Humber College, Toronto (2 submissions); Mohawk College, Hamilton; Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, Toronto (3 submission); and the University of Waterloo (2 submissions).

The Cult put on energetic show, ’

B

by Rhonda Riche &print staff

Last Monday night, in a crowded roller rink at SuperSkate Seven, one of the best (and most unusual) shows to happen around these parts came to town. The Cult performed a most energetic and passionate show to the most diverse audience I can remember seeing (remember, this is the town where the local papers reported that there was going to be gang warfare between the ‘headbangers’ and ‘wavers’). 4 Montreal band, 39 Steps opened the show with a short set. Despite their headbands and the lead singer’s resemblance to Stive Bators, they never seemed to get the audience’s attention. They also sounded like a second-rate Magazine cover band. The former Death Cult n& Southern Death Cult, took: the stage in a whirl of psyche-. delic projections and fog, but they really didn’t need any gimmicks as they performed their straight-up version of rock and roll. They performed songs from their

by Dave Imprint

album Love, including Resurrection Joe, Love, and of course Ruin, and She Sells Sanctuary, as well as a new song called Electric Sea. The band’s attitude towards their, music seemed to be that they were playing for themselves first and if the audience liked it too, then that was even better. The audience did enjoy the music, and the only surprise of the evening was probably that Ian Astbury isn’t as ugly in person. The sound was good, and the band knows how to play their instruments outside of a studib. The Cult also had a most hypnotic effect on the audience, or at least it seemed that way at the front, and even preppy jocks from Laurier dared to elbow their way to the front to get that much closer to the band before indignant band members deemed it wiser to push them out in an act of brotherly cooperation. In short, The Cult put on a great show, and in the words of Astbury, “If you don’t like it you can just .go fuck yourselves.”

Several years ago a hybrid born-again folkie put down his acoustic guitar, leaving it untouched except for the occasional token tribute to his earlier days. His fans didn’t know quite what to think; it wasn’t that he had sold out, but something seemed to be missing. Some of the fans split, even quite rudely, evacuating concert halls in shock and anger at the new image of a leather-clad subversive with a flying-Velectric guitar. But many stayed, chaoging along with their times, along with their spokesman, th& ever-changing, ever growing Bruce Cockburn.

If Cockburn ever chooses to do a live album, he’s got the bhnd that would do it justice. Chi Sharpe on traps and Michael Sloski on kit form a djrnamic and charismatic rhythm section, Hugh Marsh is as dependable and loveable as ever on electric violin and synth, and brother Fergus Marsh does innovative, ground-breaking work on the still-evolving ‘stick’. Michael Alan White, a recent addition to the Cockburn touring roster has a fluid, melodic trumpet style that blends excellently with Marsh’s uiolin lines and the strong vocal support of harmony vocalist Judy Cade. The combination of instruments is as unlikely as it is versatile, complementing old and new repertoire alike, and tastefully jazz-tinged. Fans who entered with reservations about paying the $16 ticket price, left in elation after two standing ovations, a lengthy encore, and even some dancing.

Cockburn’s rapport with the audience was first rate, and the songs seemed to flow organically one into another. Cockburn said little, relying mostly on gestures and the power of the music toecarry the concert, but his occasional remarks were relevant and humourous. The show opetied with older tunes like Fascist Architecture, Creation Dream, and Wondering Where the lions Are. Newer tunes included songs from Stealing Fire as well as songs from his newest album World of Wonders, such as People See Through You, and Call it Democracy. Lily of the Midnight Sky (played on charango, a small stringed instrument traditionally made from an armadillo) was iQtroduced by some remarks about the “incredible shrinking guitar”; while the resurrected Arrows of tight (from Joy Will Find .a Way) showcased virtuoso conch playing by Michael White. Fergus Marsh drew double-takes from the audience with a mind-numbing stick solo on Tropic Moon.

For lack of a better handle, le’t us call the Thin Men’s music jazz. Jazz? Well, I do not know what other simple world would describe the multi-blend that defines Thin Men. On March 8 the Kent Hotel, upstairs, once again hosted jazz, or a twisted version of something similar. A simple example may clarify the confusion. Rebounding from a piece which brought to mind the colossus of Stravins-

ki’s Rite of Spring, Thin Men swung back through a jazz standard, Five O’Clock Whis-’ t/e, and then-back to a fractured form of fusion. A tune titled Moose the Cut, which reverberated with a (almost) rockabilly beat and swing topping, was another diverse serving.

“They don’t give you*much of a dance floor here, do they?’ Sensing overwhelming agreement from his audience, Bruce went on to invite people to dance on whatever floorspace they could find and to ngt let “anyone who purports to be an authority” tell them otherwise. The only trouble with this invitation was that it came two-thrids of the way through the concert. Cockburn’s music is infused with such energy that you start to sense something is wrong just sitting for so long. Bruce’s message would not appear to be one of pas$vity. “If what government does affects a person’s life as much as their work does or their lotier does, then it seems to me it’s equally fair game for comment in a song.” Cockburn does much much more than simply comment. He performs the work of a true artist - transformation. Whether writing about personal, spiritual experiences or about oppression in any form, he’s been there. He’s one of the rare breed that puts service before lip service, whether working in the field while the rest of the Canadian music industry records -Tears Are Not Enough, or whether playing sold-out benefits in Vancouver for the Haida. A highlight of the show was a hat’d-driving performance of the freshly-penned anthem Stolen Land, written by Cockburn and Hugh Marsh for the Haida concert, and, as Cockburn explained, all North American native peoples. Part of the encore set, it featured a lengthy, sizzling electric guitar solo. The final encore number was Cockburn’s earthy testimonial Joy Will Find A Way - from his early days, but as appropriate as ever. Percussionist Chi Sbarpe looked like an enraptured, softened Mr. T when he joined Bruce out front, trading licks and demonstrating the real meaning of soul on his African drum. The album cut will never suffice after hearing Tuesday’s rendition of Joy in all its captivating, frenzied polyrhythm. A fitting conclusion that brought the concert full circle.

musical wish to be challenged.- The music is very busy, with possible rhythmic changes or complete changes in focus within a single work. Thin Men consists of front man and composer, Tom Walsh (trombone), Nilan Perara (guitar), David Buchbinder (trumpet), Victor Bateman (bass), and Ambrose Pottie (drums). This March 8th show will be aired on CK-MS sometime in midApril (check their schedule). Also, this combo has a new

by Chris Wodskou Imprint Staff It’s very rare that a Toronto independent band causes as much of a stir with a record release as Sturm Group has with their new album, Century Ho! Coming closely on the heels of the death of Brat X who helped out on this album and who was guitarist for Norda with whom Sturm Group has very close ties, Century Ho! is an album of compulsive intensity, one of those few records which must be experienced rather than merely listened to.

The closest comparison to Sturm Group would probably be to The Fall, but their sound is unpolluted by any of the latter’s sometimes smug self-consciousness. They have the uncanny knack for making dissonance and rough musical experimentation accessible and even danceable. Even Relief, almost a mundane rocker by the standards of the rest of the album, is far from complacent as it is propelled by a maelstrom of eight-fingered bass playing and uncompromising,

acidy with steady but not synthetic drumming, furthermore, to their advantage they have added horns on songs like Night of Ligh t and Youth Worshipper. The result is a catchy sound that bridges the gap of the crass 60s with the sophisticated 80s.

This song features dreamy guitars and dramatic percussion. ‘The result is a mystical and haunting lullaby.

by Paul Done Imprint Staff I’m sure that you’ve all come across System types before: these guys are great and they know it. Pleasure Seekers, their third album, and best to date, is a brash, cocky collection of some of the most inventive, funky dance music being made. Mic Murphy handles the vocal chores while techno-whiz David Franks does all the keyboard playing and programming. Despite the synth-oriented sound of the System, they manage to make each record sound more accessible and warm than the previous. At their best, the System’s melody pops and crackles like some atomic bowl of Rice Krispies while the basslines bounce and shudder with epileptic frenzy. On songs like Pleasure Seekers, the title track, and Big City Beat, session man Paul Pesco adds a healthy serving of grinding guitar, building the songs up to a point where it becomes almost painful not to dance to them (no exaggeration!). . Though the lyrics are unabashedly hedonistic and superficial, Mic’s always improving voice infuses them with the kind of grit and lust which is the essence of soulful dance music. As vapid as the sentiments on songs suchas My Radio Rocks are, it doesn’t matter

There is no more to be said. If you don’t have them, buy them. Music this raw, this powerful, this primal comes from only a few sources - Otis Redding, Little Richard, Sam and Dave and, above them all, James Brown.

Heyday is an impressive and enjoyable album, shut what is most outstanding is the future The Church promises.

when they are turned loud, shaking and moving your bones and internal organs. You need strong legs and lots of stamina to make it through this record - just try and dance conservatively to this record - it can’t be done. Before you know, you’ll be spinning around, jumping up and down and generally doing things which you don’t normally do. From start to finish, the pace and intensity of The Pleasure Seekers never lets up. The four songs on sideone disappear. in a pool of sweat while side two’s four cuts keep up the body-grinding pace. Physical exhaustion and / tired legs never felt so gooood!

It continues to thrive on the ‘new kick’ aspect of our culture and its members’ ritual of new trend one-upmanship in a vain attempt at exerting some control over an information-saturated environment. This hoax began when one of the British music papers reported a riot at JAM% concert and itemized the damage done. The group was subsequently banned from the club and other clubs, fearing similar damage, followed suit. Suddenly, JAMC was enshrouded with the romantic mystique of “outlaws” and “young rebels,” which brought those sacred images of James Dean and Marlon Brando to the minds of every middle-class youth looking for a wall to punch. What the clever writer neglected to mention in his report of the fateful concert ,was that the riot was started by angry fans who paid the cover charge and received only 15 minutes of uncontrolled -feedback. When the group declined to return for a second set, instead of being relieved, the mob started hurling chairs and anything else at hand onto the stage, thoroughly trashing the group’s amps and the club’s P.A. Almost instantaneously, the word spread to every child who wantea to be involved in a riot (or at least watch one from a safe distance) and they all came to the next JAMC show with the-gleeful notion of doing something forbidden or dangerous without inaking themselves vulnerable to any of the unpleasantries of real violence. The writers from the music papers were not about to let an opportunity to test their god-like powers of manipulation slip through their fingers. This was a chance to take a band, a horribly inept band, maybe the worst band on earth (because it wouldn’t be a challenge if the group involved could play their instruments or even had a glimmer of talent) and build them up into pop superstars using only the power of the printed word. The Reid brothers being the astute individuals they are, remained clear-headed enough to recognize the situation at hand and parlayed their 15 minutes of fame into a major record deal. Meanwhile, JAMC drummer Bobby Gilespie, fed up with the turn of events,. jumped ship and assumed full-time singing chores with Primal Scream. The music papers kept up the JAMC injoke with glowing reviews for each new single the band released, always accompanied with in implied nod and wink. It wasn’t the least bit surprising to see the N.M.E. devote a whole page to a loving review of PsychoCandy but I’m sure that even Jim Reid was slightly jarred by the sight of not one but two JAMC singles

in the top two positions of the N.M.E.‘s best single picks for 1985. Popularity snowballed as trendies from all corners of the planet latched on to this “next big thing”.. Even the hipper-than-thou writers of the Nerve were neither proud nor brash enough to question’ the Emperor’s New Clothers fashioned by the U.K. music papers, but what’s even sadder is that they’ve sheepishly joined the crowd without being aware of the joke involved. As for the PsychoCandy album, it would be a waste of time to crank out a list of the Merry Chain’s inadequacies, Joyously youthful? Vital? Alternative? Harbingers of a new age in punk? Ha! Their sickeningly self-conscious adolescent angst stance; totally devoid of sincerity or passion, is at best tedious. Possibly the L.P.‘s finest moment Just Like Honey, if described as lyrically vacuous and ruthlessly mediocre, would be an exaggeration of its accomplishment. The ever-present drone of feedback used to veil the band’s musical shortcomings, instead of being incorporated as an enhancement, serves to wash out each “composition” to an indiscernible grey melange until the between song gaps are looked forward to with anticipation. Their distortion and feedback might not be so tepid if it wasaccompanied by something more than the two chords that the Reid brothers have jointly come up with so far. Arrogant little pouts admittedly are kind of cute but, unfortunately, they can’t be seen on record nor can you see their new clothes.

Garden Bower are one of the more recent groups to have made an appearance on the Kitchener music scene. However, One, their first release, a four-song cassette, shows far more imagination and flair than virtually any other band in the region. Of the four songs on the tape, the first two (no titles) are the usual kind of “a bunch of friends fooling around with a four-track tape recorder” stuff which is so common in independent music. However, the last two show far more maturity than would be, expected from listening to the first two. The third song (fuck, 1 wish they had titles, it’s so awkward this way!) is an ambient summery track reminiscent of early D,urutti Column or Co&au Twins. The last track on the cassette is where all the ideas and imagination gel and the result is a revelation. Surprisingly jazzy, resembling a Velvet Underground song as interpreted by. Van Morrison; it features lovely sitarish guitar runs throughout, while the melodic bass playing both anchors the song and infuses it with weaving melody lines. 1 The most obvious sign of this band’s inexperience is the fact-that the songs are ordered badly: the very strong last two tracks should start the tape rather than end it. Regardless of the sequencing of the songs, One, by Garden Bower, is a very good first release and only serves to whet the appetite for more from this local talent. .

Katitatijian shows talent with KWSO

by Peter Lawson imprint staff

.

The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra displayed their consistent talent on Saturday, March 8, during a Masterpiece Series concert at the Centre in the Square. The orchestra, under the baton of Raffi Armenian, performed works by Sherman, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky and hosted guest violinist Gerard Kantarjian. The evening began unusually for a symphony concert. The opening piece, Norman Sherman’s (b 1926) Icthyon (Greek - ichtys = fish) was inspired by watching fish in a tank, and the sense. of random movement of these creatures is reflected in the varying tempos and harmonics in the music. The sound is often atonal and uses the jerking action of pizzicato of the strings to emphasize the flash movements of the fish. The music, is scortid for thirteen strings players, who are grouped into 6 sections - 1 solo violin; 2 two violins, viola, cello; 3 viola cello; 4 violin, 5 violin, viola, cello; 6 double bass. The usual order of a symphony returned with the full orchestra for Felix Mendelssohn’s (1809 - 1847) Violin Concerto

64. The sionato driven rhythms serene Andante,

melody. The concluding third movement, Allegro molto uiuace, is a famous melody which is often featured as an excerpt. It also has a dance rhythm and brings this splendid concerto to a bouncy conclusion.

Gerard Kantarjian had a good opportunity to show his talents in this famous melodic work. Mr. Kantarjian, born in Cario, began studying the violin at age of three-and-a-half and became an international violinist as his, career progressed. -He came to Canada in 1967 to be concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony and has remained in Toronto as a freelance musician and currently guides the Chamber Players of Toronto and the CJRT Orchestra. The music of Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) concluded the evening’s program. The’Symphony No 4 in F minor, Opus 36 reflects the moods which affected Tchaikovsky’s life, especially the elements of tragic fate. The second movement, Anduntino in modo di canzona, is a famous melody which possesses a pinch of the tragic. Throughout the third movement, the strings played pizzicato (plucking strings instead of bowing), an effective contrast to the stormy fourth in E minor, Opus movement’s conclusion. Allegro moJto uppusThe evening was another ,( 1st movement) is by Slavic dance ,_ success for Director Raffi Armenian who always seems to and yields to a more have his orchestra in fine, dissecond movement, which has a golden cipline form.

The second band Problem Children had much more success as their early punk sound came through the speakers with lemon-fresh clarity. The band was very successful in blending their 70s influences with some more thrashy hardcore songs to create a satisfying variety, keeping their show interesting from start to finish.

Bishop gives spirited show . by M&y

Joy Aitken

Manitoba folk-singer Heather Bishop gave a spirited and moving performance in the Humanities Theatre last Thursday evening as part of the celebrations surrounding International Women’s Day. Despite bonechilling winds and- near-blizzard conditions, close to 200 people turned out to hear the feminist singer provide a varied and wonderfully entertaining evening of progressive music. The event was sponsored by the Federation of Students. The concert was opened bb Bishop’s accompanist, Tracey Riley. Riley, a young and talented bass player, originally from Montreal and now living in Winnipeg, gave a solid opening &Later in the evening she showed her coolness under pressure when, after Bishop broke a guitar ,string, she immediately stepped in and delivered a rousing version of Wild Women Don’t Get The Blues, much to the delight of the audience.

Although they hdve been performing together for only a year, Bishop and Riley have put together a first-rate show with Riley’s quiet but able bat k-up vocals and bdss-playing suitably complementing Bishop’s powerful vocal ability. The -two performed a variety of music ranging from blues to a delightful children’s set. The latter was highlighted by Bishop’s decision to hold a dance contest in which almost the entire audience entINske& participated. (The winners : there were two - received one of Bishop’s albums as their. prize.) Bishop performed both‘ old (Feuer, Yukon Ruin, I Love Women) and new material. Amongst the latter was a motiing song about the delicate issue of incest as well as a beautiful tribute to life on the prairies. Bishop also performed Our Silence, a song about Mother Earth, which she introduced by saying, “If your mother is sick you go home and take care of her. Our mother is sick and we must take care of her.”

“Rather than giving artists more Heather Bishop: government grants, the government needs to export Canadian culture.”

Contacted after the concert, Bishop had some interesting comments to make about government support of Canadian artists. She said “rather than giving us (artists) more government grants, the government needs to export Canadian culture. We have a really good cuiture. The problem is that we don’t export it.”

She suggested that, “our government should lobby on our (artists’) behalf and help us get access to the American market.” It is now almost impossible for musicians sue h as Bishop to obtain work visas ’ for the United States because they have to be able to prove that no U.S. citizen could do their work.

It should come as no surprise that the most exciting new literature published over the last few decades has come from the smaller houses such as Black Sparrow Press, New Directions, Grove Press and the mecca of cool, City Lights. Random House, however, has recently stirred things up by bursting onto the scene with the slick Vintage Contemporaries series flaunting a solid core of established and talented young unknown writers (Raymond Carver, Thomas McGuane, Richard Ford, Kathryn Kramer, Paule -Marshall and others). With the “overnight” success of his first novel Bright Lights, Big City, 1984, (already being filmed as a major budget motion picture), Jay McInerney has suddenly found himself weighted with the “spokesman for a generation” burden, receiving as much backlash now as hype when the novel sold out its first printing of 15,000 copies in less than a month. His back against the critical wall, McInerney’s second novel Ransom would either launch him into the furthest cokesparkled reachs of the POP celebritv stratosphere or validate his one way ticket to One-Nouel- Wonders--ville. The plot is formed around a disillusioned young man, Chris Ransom, who leaves the shallowness and moral bankruptcy of the West (most notably represented by his father’s “fall from grace” in starting out as an idealistic playwright, critically lauded though “commercially modest” and winding up as a Hollywood director of commercials and simple-minded sit-

Friday,

Toronto teacher Mike Orlando has been fortunate enough to turn ‘his love for movie- posters into a lucrative business. Orlando started out as your typical “movie buff” who collected and saved anything and everything relating to his favourite films and stars. Some 15 years ago ‘he made a point of visiting old movie’houses which were inthe process of closing down. Mike was able to purchase valuable movie memorabilia for next to nothing. At that time, in Canada few people realized that vintage movie posters were valuable collectibles. It seems that “one man’s garbage is another man’s gold.” Orlando used these hidden treasures as tradeable commodities, enabling him to further enhance his personal collection. He is now recognized by his fellow collectors as possessing the most extensive Humphrey Bogart collection in the world.

Casablanca (3r Gone With the Wind movie poster costs $4,000, while a WizardofOz\ ,vould set you back an overwhelm. ing $10,000.

Presently, there has been an explosion of interest in movie posters due to a recent acknowledgement of movie posters as an artform and as artifacts of modern history. Evidence of this is the New York Museum of Modern Art’s most recent purchase of a collection of foreign and American posters from the 20s and 30s and 40s for $200,000. Mass culture has been influenced, to a great extent, by George Lucas’ promotion of the blockbuster motion picture Star Wars. Lucas was the first director/entrepreneur to realize that modern movie advertisements are a marketable product. Seeing Star Wars posters in department stores generated people’s enthusiasm and interest. Movie-goers began to question where they could purchase collectibles related to their favourite films.

As Mike’s collection increased, collectors world-wide would make a point of visiting’ him in Toronto in order to conduct trades and purchases. Not wanting every Stephen, Francis or Alfred traipsing through his home, Mike decided to open an office in the Beaches. Recognizing a potential business venture, Mike displayed selected posters from his collection. As a result, people started walking in off the street to make inquiries. He then converted his office into a store called The Hollywood Canteen. It became a going concern, to such an extent that he Movie distrubutors, now realizing the value of their promorequired more space.

Since not everyone has $10,000 to spend on their favourite classic film poster, production companies have made it possible to purchase reproductions of classic film titles for a fraction of the cost. These reproductions, which are exact replicas of the originals, are of little value to a serious collector who is solely interested in first issue, original posters dating back to the film’s initial release. However, for you and I, the alternative is an inexpensive way to obtain an attractive and hostalgic keepsake. * Collectors of rare movie posters have been in existence since the making of the firs‘t motion picture.

Get the picture that the show was something exciting? If, you weren’t there, you missed something big. Buxton and Company are not exactly a ‘touring band,” all four members have flourishing careers to worry about. If and WHEN this Toronto-based #group to decide to give a performance, don’t miss it.

by Steve Hayman Imprint-staff Just like we all knew they’d do, the basketball Warriors won the Mid-East Regional last weekend at the PAC and head now with the band to Halifax, for their fourth straight CIAU Final Four tournament Although neither the 81-72 victory over Calgary nor the 63-62 heart-stopper over Winnipeg can be classified as championship calibre ball, a win is a win at this stage. Waterloo now has the joy of travelling 1,500 miles just to play Western tonight. The other semi-final is another inter-division clash between ttie Mid:West regional winner SaskatcheGan Huskies and Western winner, who else, Victoria. Both games will be shown by TSN at 5:00 and 7:30 pm., with tomorrow’s championship game on CTV at 2:00 pm. Can “Dynasty 11:The Warriors” finally remove the Vikings from their six-year position as Canada’s champions? Surely you don’t expect me to provide an objective answer.

\ Waterloo 63, Winnipeg 62 It was a classic game+fro,m the entertainment angle. The final against Winnipeg marked the end of an era; it is definitely the last game at the PAC for all-time leading scorer Peter Savich as a Warrior, and possibly the last for Paul Boyce and Randy Norris. “I wasn’t even thinking about -it until the CBC asked me about it after the game,” Savich said. But don’t go away, #21 fans, negotiations are underway to bring the National team to the PAC for a game this summer. Now back to the live action, The regional final against Winnipeg was witnessed by the loudest and largest crowd and band of the year, and nobody was disappointed. The only part worth describing is the last minute (Oh, OK, it was 38-29 for Waterloo at the half. And Savich had 20 in the first half, going 2 for 2from the lineand 9 for 10 from the floor, with 2 layups, 7 jump shots and 1 assist. These basketball analysis charts are great!) The Wesmen fought back to take a 62-59 lead with a minute left; Paul Boyce scored shortly after to make it 62-61. The Warriors were forced to foul with 0: 12 left and chose Winnipeg’s Gord Tucker as the stooge. Three thousand Warrior fans - called the “third coach” after the game by assistant Athletic Director Wally Delahey flustered Tucker enough that he missed the first shot, andas Waterloo brought the ball up the floor Rob Froese was fouled driving for the basket. With three seconds left, Froese (the one player you want in this situation, of course) connected on both shots toigive Waterloo its one point win, marking the second straight year that Froese won the regional with a last-second shot. “We got character, we got guts and that’s what won the game for us,” Savich said after scoring only 6 in the second half but choosing particularly opportune times for his points. “Nobody else was scoring. Somebody had to,” he said. ’ “1 have to be happy. We had a great year,” Winnipeg coach Bill Wedlake said at the conclusion of his first year of university, ball. “it’s nice to play here too. There’s no place in the country like this. Plus, your sports coverage is better than ours; the last two issues of our paper were all about ‘Gays, Lesbians and Aspartame.‘-’ An otherwise happy Waterloo coach Don McCrae noted that “We started dismally in the second half, We went to sleep.” And in fact the team was lucky to escape with the victory. Tournament all-stars were McGill’s Patrick Arsenault, John Vigna of the Dinosaurs, Winnipeg’s Will Parker and Gord Tucker, land of course Savich. Froese was,honoured as the game’s MVP, for making the last-second shot that will be rememberedvfor years, just like Savich’s shot to beat Brandon in 1982, Seymour Hadwen’s no-time left basket to beat Guelph in the 1979 playoffs, and guard Phi’1 Goggin’s national-championship-winning basket in 1976. Semifinal - Waterloo 81, Calgary 72 “It wasn’t a nine-point game at all,” Calgary coach Glen Howard said. “It was more like three. I hope we didn’t leave your fans wanting their money back.” Calgary led early and took it 38-34 halftime split to the dressing room but Waterloo steadily pulled away in the second half. Five Warriors - Savich, Froese, Boyce, Randy Norris and Vilhelm Boggild each scored in double figures. “You shot the ball tonight, you bugger!“, Howard said to Boggild

Review of CIAU basketball regional by Donald Duench Imprint staff At the ClAU basketball regionals this past weekend, four teams won to advance to the Final Four, twelve teams were forced to conclude their seasons, but the real winners were the fans who attended the four tournaments. They were treated to some excellent hoops, including a pair of one-point nail-biters to determine regional champions. At Wolfville, N.S., the Western Mustangs were forced to the limit twice, but came up with the regional championship. In their opening game against UPEI, the ‘Stangs’ had to go into overtime to finally settle the issue, winning 78-74. Later that night, the hometown Acadia Axemen finished off an injury-scarred York crew 83-69. In the final; UWO’s Chris Cavender sank a pair of clutch free throws with seven seconds left to give Western a 63-60 advantage. Acadia wqs given the easy hoop at the buzzer to leave the final at 63-62. UPEI won the consolation game, 73-60, over York. At Saskatoon. Sask.. the No. 1 ranked Manitoba Bisons had their chances of advancing to the Final Four dimmed when guard Terry Garrow suffered a sprained ankle near the end. of the first half o,f then semi-final game versus Toronto. Manitoba, who had led 46-35 at the half, barely held on to defeat the Blues 84-83. In the other semi-final, Saskatchewan topped Dalhousie 67-64. Without Garrow in peak physical condition, the Bisons lost to Saskatchewan 72-59 in the final. Toronto edged Dal, 79-76, in the 1 consolation contest. At Lethbridge, Alta., a national television audience saw the return to form of Victoria’s Cord Clemens. The Vikines defeated St. F.X. 80-72 in one semi-final, while Lethbridge came back rom a poor start to destroy Concordia 77-58. The Pronghorns also got off to a bad start against Victoria but couldn’t come -back this time. Vic took a 79-59 decision to claim a spot in Halifax. Concordia defeated St. F.X. 83-73 in the consolation game. The results, combined with Waterloo’s victories over Calgary (81-72) and Winnipeg (63-62) to win the Mid-East regional, set the stage for the Final Four this weekend to decide the CIAU basketball championship. In one semi-final, Western (ranked 1lth last weekend) will meet Waterloo (3), and Victoria (2) will take on Saskatchewan (ranked 12th). These semi-finals will be held tonight (Friday) at the Metro Centre in Halifax, N.S., at 5 pm. and 7:30 pm (not respectively), and will be televised on TSN.

The winners will then meet tomorrow (Saturday) at 2 pm. to decide the national championship. This game will be televised on CTV (channel 13 locally). The Hal&facts . Western: The Mustangs, coached by Doug Hayes, have had a roller-coaster season. After an unimpressive pre-season U WO also lost last season’s top scorer, Greg Moore, due to injury. For some reason, the ‘Stangs’ were able to become greater than the sum of their parts, and won the regular season of the OUAA West with a 10-2, record. Their only loss since the regular season ended was in the division final, where Waterloo topped them 7 l-66. UWO workhorses include OUAA West all-stars Chris Cavender (first team) and Peter Vandebovenkamp (second team). Guard Pod Armstrong injured his knee in Friday’s regional semi-final, and may not be available for the Final Four. This is the first appearance by Western at the national championships since 1968, when Waterloo Lutheran won. Saskatchewan: The Huskies will be somewhat familiar to Halifax fans, as their team logo was “borrowed** from St. Mary’s, U of Sask. was ranked No. 2 in December, after they won the Albert tournament, and they looked like the team to beat in Canada West. Perhaps due to the fact that they were to host a regional, the Huskies wound up with a 4-6 record in CWUAA play, just barely making the playoffs on points for and against Alberta( 144-143). In the Canada West playoffs, they upset Victori& 78-76, and then lost to Lethbridge (86-76) in the final. Head coach Guy Vetrie has 6’8’*, 255 pound All-Canadian Byron Tokarchuk to counter the height of Victoria and Waterloo. I he Huskie supporting cast features Kirk Jones, Sheldon Ryma, and Junior National Team member John Clelland. This is the first appearence by Saskatchewan at the national championships since 1982. Victoria: National champions for the past six years. Calm, cool, and collected. Machine-like efficiency. All these apply to the Vikings, and their head coach, Ken Shields, The Vikings. have been No. I in the rankings for most of the year (and the decade), and have lost only five games to CIAU opposition this season. They finished the CWUAA regular season at 9-1, but lost in the conference semi-final to Saskatchewan. What everyone notices first about the Vikings is their overall height, especially seven-footer Cord Clemens; who is now recovered from a back injury. Look closely, and what stands out is the stellar play of all six guards, who are almost interchangeable in the Victoria style of play. Randy Steele, Lloyd Scrubb and Vito Pas-

Food for ~Thought

Atitontimy ..focus-of .workshop

.

A one-day workshop on the relationship of technology to human freedom (“autonomy”) will be held at UW on Friday, March 2 1: Sessions will be held in the Great Hall of Conrad Grebel College from 9:00 am. to 4:45 pm. Jointly sponsored by UW’s Centre for Society, Technology and Values (CSTV) and the University of Toronto’s McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology, the day-long worksop -- called “Technology and Autonomy” -- will feature six sessions on topics related to the main theme. The morning component (9:00 am. - 12:30 pm.) is sponsored by the U of T McLuhan Program. Prof. David Olson, the Program’s co-director, will conduct the first session, which is on technology and subjectivity. Olson will argue that the growth of our “subjective mental states” (private thoughts and intentions, for example) is directly related to the development of literacy. In session two, Prof. Willem Vanderburg.of U of T’s industrial engineering department and a speaker at past CSTV functions, will present a cultural perspective on the workshop theme. Vanderburg, a U W alumnus, is the author of The Growth of Minds and Cultures (1985). The third session will be conducted by Prof. Frits van Holthoon of the University of Groningen (Holland), who will examine classi-. cal notions of political liberalism in the light of society’s belief in progress and the nature of technological change. The afternoon sessions (12:30 - 4:45 pm.) are sponsored by CSTV. CSTV director Prof. Larry Haworth will lead off with an examination of the prospects for individual autonomy in a technological society. Haworth has conducted research in this area for several-

years and recently was granted an SSHRC award to continue his investigations. His latest book is titled Autonomy (Yale, in press). Haworth will consider the validity of the view that technology promotes personal autonomy by enhancing people’s freedom and leisure. The key issue is whether technologically procured freedom and leisure actually have this effect. Workshop session five will be in charge of Prof. Langdon Winner of.Rensselear Polytechnic Institute (Troy, New York), who is the author of Autonomous Technology (1977). He’ll continue the exploration of technology-based institutions. In the present “information age,” says Winner, we must shape these institutions in order to limit and fragment their power, so that human freedom will be enhanced rather than eroded. The final session, on autonomy, technology and “the crisis of liberalism,” will be conducted by Prof. Albert Borgmann of the University of Montana. Author of Technology and the Character of Contemporary Life (1984), Borgmann will contend that an accu, rate anlaysis of our technological culture not only clarifies the technology-freedom dispute but also presents a more hopeful vision in which communal social values and individual freedom can be reconciled. Students, faculty,‘staff and interested members of the public are invited to attend. There is no registration fee nor admission charge. Students who attend any of the session will also be able to pick up information on the new undergraduate option in STV, a six-course ’ program that will go into operation in the winter 1987 academic term. For more information on the “Technology and Autonomy** workshop, call the CSTV office at (519) 885-1211, ext. 6215.

Imagination can be Cheaper \ by Cindy Long On Tuesday I made cabbage rolls. The first instruction in the recipe was “Core the cabbage”. Not having a Tupperware cabbage corer (is there such,a beast?), I had an extremely difficult time getting the center of the cabbage out. Perhaps my arm muscles simply were not strong enough. Whatever the reason, it was not a fun task. However, once I had cored my cabbage, I had all these shreds left over and would have thrown them out had I not concluded that they looked vaguely like coleslaw and decided to use these and the core to make just that. The recipe I found called for 3 cups grated cabbage, 2 medium grated carrots, 3 tbsp. parsley, 1cup of mayonnaise, the juice of a lemon, pepper and sunflower seeds. I omitted the seeds, used about 3 tbsp. of mayonnaise and only half a lemon and it still tasted fine. Sometimes you can play around with ingredients this way, especially with salads. I wasn’t trying to be particularly creative, just cheap. Be creative (and cheap if you like) when you cook. It’s fun.

L Waste not, want not It’s also interesting to note that my coleslaw almost ended up as trash. It’s easy, in a consumer-oriented society, to waste ‘things, food included. Don’t throw away the juice from canned fruit or vegetables. You can often find a use for it, if only to moisten a stir-fry dish (in place of water) or to flavour rice. Fruit juice or syrup is good on ice-cream. This next idea is incredibly cheap and, in my opinion, fairly imaginative. It’s not incredibly n.utritious, but it tastes good and goes over well when you’re too tired to be creative. Mash some potatoes (for two people we use about 4 medium potatoes). Heat a large can of vegetable soup. Don’t dilute it as directed. Add about i/4 cup of water instead.. When it’s heated, pour it on the mashed potatoes. If you’re as silly as we are, you can make a fort with the potatoes and pour the soup inside, then poke a hole in the “wall” and make a moat. If nothing else, it take our minds off mid-terms and other highly philosophical issues for five minutes. (Kids love this stuff, too). To, make good mashed potatoes, boil the potatoes for about a half an hour until they’re soft. Pour out all but i/4 cup of the water-. Add */4cup of butter, some milk and mash them well. Use more or less liquid depending on how creamy you like them. By the way, don’t make cabbage rolls unless you have a lot of time (1% hours cooking time alone) and a lot of people. We’ll be eating cabbage for a week.
