hii/ersity books spared from new -gov’t t ariffs by Graeme Hamilton The Gazette, University ern Ontario

of West-

The federal government’s plans to revive a tariff on U.S. books has been greeted angrily by Canadian book readers and se.llers, but the tariff is not expected to have a.serious impact on universities. The 10 per cent tariff was brought back to life after an, eight year absence as a retaliatory move against a U.S. tariff imposed on Canadian cedar shakes and shingles. But certain classes of books are exempt under the tariff, and among tfiese are library purchases and books certified as university curriculum material. As a result, representatives of Western’s libraries and book store expect to escape the tariff’s pinch. “I’m fairly confident this tariff will have little or no effect,” said John Hoover, assistant director of libraries collection managment at Western. He said he was in his job eight years ago when the tariff was previously in effect. “I’m not aware that we paid any tariff on imported books.” At the Book Store, general books manager Dale Halt said he anticipates the bulk of the store’s stock will not be subject to the tariff.

“Essentially, course materials will not be seriously affected.” I “Essentially, course materials will not be seriously adversely affected,” he said. While the Book Store does some of its buying directly from American sources, most of it is done thrdugh Canadian agents. Holt said this could present some problems if the importer does not know whether a book will eventually be sold for university use. Serge Lavoie, executive director of the Canadian Booksellers Association, said the tariff will mean “a great deal of paperwork” for university bookstores as they attempt to establish with the government which books are included on the school’s curriculum. But the real effect of the tariff \ will be felt by the general reading public. “American books are already considered to be too expensive because of the (difference) in the dollar,” said Lavoie. He said his organization is trying to convince the government that irreparable damage will be caused by the tariff. “They can’t use cultural products like books as a batgaining chip on the free trade table.”

BACCHUS

by Teni Shewfelt Imprint staff Alcohol abuse on university campuses is a steadily growing social problem, one that a group on our campus is trying to stop. BACCHUS, a U.S. based group whose motto is Boost Alcohol Conciousness Concerning the Health of University Students, previously had a chapter at UW and is currently trying to readtivate this chapter. The group recognizes the need for responsible drinking and finds that when students misuse alcohol, academic performance, health and safety suffer. The philosophy of BACCHUS is fourfold: . ....Keep in mind that drinking should not be the primary focus of any activity .....Recognize anothers right to drink or not to drink .....Avoid encouraging or reinforcing irresponsible behavior .....Remember that the right to drink

awareness

revived is limited by society through laws goveming things such as drinking and driving and drinking age, people must respect these laws. BACCHUS does not attempt to say drinking is wrong but rather encourages moderation in the use of beer, wine, and liquor among students who do drink, and respect for the choice of students who abstain. The BACCHUS group, which is now forming on campus, needs members, board members and student input and ideas. Those inter- ’ ested in joining BACCHUS can contact Tari Akpodiete at extension

And if you drink, remember: - set a limit on the number of drinks you are going to have ahead of time and stick to it. - drink slowly; don’t guzzle. - measure your alcohol when you are mixing a drink. - avoid performing tasks that Equite skilled reactions.

Loan p an for _ Good to last drop foreign students Jumpin.q

out of airplanes

by Dawn Aggett Imprint staff

by Fleur Macqueen Imprint staff who do you turn to for money in an emergency if you’re a foreign graduate student? You can’t get a job without a work permit, you can’t get a bank loan, and in the past you didn’t even qualify for a university emergency loan. But now, with the allocation of $20,000 from UWs Graduate Students Association (GSA), foreign students do qualify for loans and bursaries of up to $500 a year. The GSA has long recognized the financial difficulties foreign students face, said association president Michael Webster. Common problems include getting money out of the student’s home country and the drop in foreign currency rates. Four or five interest-free loans,

with a maximum of one loan per student per academic year, can now be provided annually, said Webster. The graduate office, which handles emergency loans for Canadian students, will decide prior to allocating money whether the funds will be considered a loan or a bursary, he added. The $20,000 made available for this endowment fund comes from the Graduate House profits. Formerly, interest from this money paid for GSA activities, said Webster. These activities will continue to be funded, but will be included in the association’s budget. * Official approval for the endowment fund has not yet been received from the UW senate. Webster anticipates no problem in getting the fund approved in the fall when the subject comes before senate.

Good to the last drop? While no one on the local skydiving club is anxiously awaiting that the members do “last drop”, agree it is-good. The Waterloo Skydiving Club, in operation for five years, offers lessons through UW’s Campus Recreation department. The club currently has 58 members. Jump training is provided by SWOOPS (South Western Ontario” Organization of Parachutists). The cost is $120 for six hours of instruction, both theoretical and practical, and the ‘first jump. Successive jumps are $30 each. Julie Munday, club president, says the Waterloo club holds an impressive safety record. Knee and lower leg injuries are not uncommon, but are relatively

minor. Is this typical, or has the club just been lucky? According to a recent issue of Parachutist magazine, the sport is not as dangerous as some people believe it to be. Each parachute jump runs a one in 61,000 chance of ending in death. This figure, which includes the general aviation risk, does not look all that bad when compared with the one in 500,000 chance o.f death from an airplane crash. No matter what the percentages, club members would argue it is well worth the risk. Never having had the urge to hurl myself from a plane, I had to \ take it from.the members that it is “sensational.” If making that 8:30 lab Friday morning or lining up at Fed Hall is not quite the ihrill it used to be, -maybe skydiving is for you.

Student Health inSurance rate to go up 7 per cent” by Phil Bimbaum _ Imprint staff The cost of the UW Student Supplementary Health Insurance Plan will increase seven per cent in the fall despite reductions in benefits implemented to reduce costs. The insurance, compulsory for all students who do not have comparable coverage, will increase in cost from $13.68 to $14.64 per four-month term for undergraduates and from $15.83 to $16.94 for graduate students. Co-op students will pay $27.45 for eight-month coverage, up from $25.65. The premium is charged as an incidental fee on fee statements. The insurance pays for certain medical expenses not covered by OHIP, such as drugs, wheelchairs, ambulance service, services of a psychologist and out-of-Canada expenses. The policy is administered by the Federation of Students and the Graduate Student Association, and underwritten by Mutual Life. Fed. President Scott Forrest said the “skyrocketting cost of drugs” is responsible for the cost hike. He said the increase would have amounted to 16 per cent instead of seven had reductions in benefits not been implemented. Among these changes is an increase to $3.50 from $3 in the drug deductible. Students requiring prescription drugs are reimbursed for their cost less the deductible. Forrest said a cost to the student of $3.50 per prescription is “not out of line”, claiming “not everyone uses it (the drug plan)... it should be more user-pay.” The range of drugs covered has also been reduced. Only drugs which require a prescription, as well as certain over-thecounter drugs, will be eligible for coverage. Previously, any drug was eligible provided it was prescribed by a physician. “It’s to discourage people trying to get a prescription when they can get the drug without one,” Forrest said. In addition, the cost of oral contraceptives to students obtaining them off-campus will more than triple. The deductible of $3 per three-month prescription will increase to $3.50 per month, or a total of $10.50 for three months. Any student covered bythe plan, however, will continue to be able to get the birth control pill without charge from Health and Safety on-campus. The scheme to distribute the pill free was launched last September. As of May,1 , H,ealth and Safety records show some 8,500 one-month prescriptions had been obtained on-campus by students. Forrest said the pill was made available free to save costs on the policy. Since Health and Safety purchases supplies of the pill at a lower price than the policy pays the pharmacist, the net result is a savings. Coop students leaving on work terms can obtain a four-month supply of the pill in advance, so in most cases they will never be required to pay for oral contraceptives while covered by the plan.

Buttons

. .’ Imprint, Friday

I LJune

bann-ed \

The new system, introduced by manager Chuck McMullan earlier this term, was put in place to identify those patrons who had been cut off from further drinking. The button depicts Herman (looking a little sick) crawling across the floor to a toilet. The scene is circled in red with a diagonal line through. it. ! When someone is cut off, he or she has the choice of leaving Fed Hall or staying and wearing the button. If customers are intoxicated enough to be cut off, it is best not to turn them out into the street where they can cause damage to public property or get injured, said McMullan. While the Federation of Students agreed with Fed Hall’s goals, it deter mined the Herman button was not appropriate. Members voted to cancel the system at the May 25 council meeting. “(Council) agrees with the principle of using a button that marks you when you have been cut off so bartenders know not to serve you, and you don’t have to leave the facility,” said fed president Scott Forrest. There is a negative stigma attached to the Herman button, said Forrest. Student council members determined that some people may find the button offensive and do not want to wear it. He said the request to discontinue using the buttons was reasonable in light of the response. -

The three-week intervals between council meetings led to the delay of a federation decision on the use of the Herman buttons, he said. When asked if he was aware of ,the button’s nature before it had been ordered,. Forrest said there had been a mix-up in communications. Both McMullan and Forrest had agreed a button should be used. McMullan wanted to add an element of humour to the button, so heasked Fed Hall staff to design one. They

came up with the Herman button. Students who have been cut off must still wear a button if they wish to remain in the establishment. For a test period, Fed Hall is using the “Thanks but no Thanks’ buttons currently used to identify minors. lf this is effective, Fed Hall will continue its use. If it is not, another button will be designed, said Forrest. Souvenir Herman “no puking” buttons-are now on sale at Fed Hall for $0.75 each.

Call me cynical but .Oq n

by Andrew Saikalt Two weeks ago, a group of musicians including U2, the reunited Police, and Peter Gabriel gathered at New Jersey’s Giant Stadium before a crowd of 55,000. It marked the end of an 11 day “Conspiracy of Hope” tour on behalf of Amnesty International. They didn’t want your money; the musicians were not trying to sa!vage their images by crying out - “look at us - we’re talented. . . and socially responsible to bootl” Anyone familiar with the track records of the performers atready knows that. All they wanted was your time. ’ So after the nine hour event, everyone who attended or heard or watched the concert rushed out to their local chapter of Amnesty International to write letters or postcards on behalf of political prisoners - right? Call me a cynic, but for most the message probably ended when the concert ended. And that’s a shame because Amnesty is not. something that requires just immediate doses of financial or material aid, pledged during the broadcast. It demands long-term hum& understanding. It strives in a very non-partisan way to tune people into the world around them - not only to alert us to human rights violations in totalitarian juntas - human rights violations are not confined to the southern hemisphere and to the communist bloc - Amnesty International also tries to illustrate how our own Western society has mistreated native peoples. It opposes the‘regressive move of many U.S. states that reinstated the death penalty because rehabilitation was considered a failure and a drain on society’s resources. Returning to a tried and once-rejected practice is always easier -and cheaper than using highly educated minds to keep elements of rehabilitation that work, scrap what doesn’t, and forge ahead with new, as yet untried ideas. What? North American injustice? Never! We’re perfect - love it or leave it - right? Wrong. We’re good, better than most - but that ain’t perfection. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the Amnesty concert is just what the organization needs to turn people’s attention to these and other issues. After all, the concert was more than just a rock and roll show. Hopefully its importance will not be understated. For artists who combine thought-provoking, humanist lyrics with musical talent and the accessibility necessary to reach an audience are a rare breed indeed. More than a rock and roll show? Amnesty proved it, the artists

Editorial

expressed

by Steve Kannon Imprint staff The current dispute between the provincial government and Ontario’s doctors is a classic case of a non-issue b$ng blown out of proportion by the somewhat self-serving Peterson Liberals. The government has persisted in pursuing its ban on extra-billing because the move is politically ex‘pedient, not because tighter controls are an abso,-lute social necessity. The Liberals need the support of the New Democrats to stay in power, the NDP wants extra-billing banned (the practice is not in line with socialist thinking), so the Liberals tabled appropriate legislation. Peterson and his gang don’t need to be told twice which side their bread is buttered on. By taking on the doctors (a relatively small voting block), the government has also earned a fistful of brownie points from the general public. Ontario’s physicians are often viewed as overpaid and under worked, so any legislation aimed at governing the fees doctors can charge will obviously gain widespread support. While the intentions behind Bill 94 may have some merits, the whole issue of extra-billing is far from being this province’s most pressingaproblem. Yet the issue has taken the forefront, both in the Legislature and in the media. As only 12 per cent of Ontario’s 17,000 doctors extra-bill their patients, the problem is not the epidemic. the Liberals and the NDP make it out to be. If that percentage had been 80 or 90, then an alarm would be warranted. But the fact is anyone who objects to extra-billingcan easily find a doctor who bills within the OHIP fee schedule. This is not to say the government is solely, to blame in the dispute. The doctors have done much to deserve the criticism being laid on them by the public and the media (including this publication).Although the Ontario Medical Association does have a legitimate grievance against the government, it has alienated itself by fighting its battles at the expense of patients. Closing hospitals and clinics definitely grabbed the government’s attention, but it did not gain public support for the doctors’ cause. My biggest complaint with the doctors’ stand has been the incessant rhetoric spouted by the OMA and some of its more militant members. They claim the issue is not about money, yetcontinue to make statements about free enterprise and the right to make money. The underfunding issue, a serious problem for Ontario’s health care system, has nothing to do with the extra-billing matter, yet it is repeatedly brought up in response to government statements. The doctors say they fear Bill 94 is the first step towards full provincial control over how the medical profession operates. David Peterson says this is not so. I would be inclined to err on the side of caution and support the doctors’ notion that less, not more, government control is the desirable thing. The government has no right to dictate how medicine is practiced in this province.

^

What they do have a right to do, however, is monitor the flow of money into the health care system. About one-third of the provincial budget, or almost $9 billion, is spent each year through the ministry of health. This is public money and we have the right to hold the government and doctors who spend it accountable for every dollar. Accountability is not an infringement on anybod-. y’s rights. This is the aspect the Liberals should be tackling, with the full input of the OMA. A ban on extra-billing seems inevitable, but it should be achieved on a more agreeable basis. By ramming legislation down doctors’ throats, the government is acting in bad faith. By reacting in an unprofessional manner, the doctors have damaged any chance of gaining public support for their-legitimate grievances against the Grits. Because of the dispute, patients have lost valuable medical services. But even worse, the public has been stiffed by leaders who refuse to tackle issues far more pressing than extra-billing (such aschronic underfunding for health care and post-secondary education, environmental issues). The Peterson Liberals have made an art of extending the voter honeymoon by dealing only with those issues gua-. ranteed not to rock the boat of popular opinion. If universal health care is the desired goal, putting an end to extra-billing is a necessity. Doctors who extra-bill often get the best of both worlds - guaranteed OHIP minimums with extra fees as the gravy. Achieving uniform medical coverage is an admirable goal, but the government is going about it the wrong way. ’ A ban is not an immediate and pressing matter, it can be implemented over an extended time-period. This being so, the government should set a long ’ target-date for having a complete ban in place. In the interim. both the government and the OMA (which must reverse, its non-negotiating stance) can work out a fee schedule which incorporates a formula for specialists and highly-experienced physicians. Once some genuine compromises have been made, the government would then be in a position to make doctors adhere to OHlPfee schedules. After that point, any doctor not in agreement with the system could opt-out completely and compete in the free market, where supply and demand, not legislation, would dictate the cost of medical services. Most doctors, I think, want to avoid a- market system, which would likely lower the average income substantially. But the government shouldn’t take advantage of this fact until all other avenues have been exhausted. If the OMA refuses to negotiate within a given time-frame, then doctors would have no cause for griping. Right now, the association refuses to even do that much. Both parties are at fault in the current dispute. Both the government and the OMA must put aside their self-serving intentions and reach an intelligent agreement. From all recent indications, both sides have a good deal of growing up to do before we reach that stage.

IRRELEVAN.T? To the Editor: On June 13 several members of Imprint staff published a short discourse on the issue of extrabilling. In the spirit of fairness, the reader is urgedto look back tothat stack of dusty Imprints in the corner, and objectively peruse the article entitled ‘What’s up Dot?“. It is not my intention to present an opinion or argument about the extra billing issue. Rather, I contend that ‘What’s up Dot?’ contains irrelevant and unrelated reasoning, is an unfounded comOment, and-is a fallacious argument. The following premises are presented in support of my claim. (I have described the fallacies found in ‘What’s up Dot?’ using their proper names in uppercase letters so the reader could easily identify them and confirm their usage in some text on critical thinking.) a Acknowledgement is given to the fact that this is an attempt at an argument as it contains a claim. The claim is that the income. of physicians is the real issue, and that they are striking for the right to charge for services rendered to clients. This claim, unsupported by premise, is left twisting in the winds of reason. The assertion was neither in recognition nor was it representative of the true issues. Both parties have stated their claims publicly, and yearly income was in neither platform. You are thus charged with the misrepresentation of an adversary’s position, that is, the STRAW MAN fallacy. The result of this initial flaw is the following group of fallacies. The fact that doctors make more than average income is an IRRELEVANT REASON. Bold printing the letters ASS in the name Ontario Medical ASSOciation is a textbook example of AD HOMINEM. Name calling bears no weight in adult conversation and casts doubt on the user. ’ There is also an attempt to make the profession appear GUILTY BY its ASSOCIATION to wealth when wealth is neither \a crime nor immoral. Several LOADED TERMS intended to promote an emotional reaction, rather than to appeal toreason, are used throughout. Gut feelings do not form the basis for infallible arguments. Then, there is the paragraph which deals with the “right to have” three automobiles; Rolls Royces to be exact. Everyone has the right to have three automobiles. Though personal financial conditions may prohibit many 4 from this luxury, we all still have the right to have as many cars as we wish. There is nothing in the Canadian Constitution or itsdawbooks to limit free individuals to own cars. This is a sneaky attempt to STEREOTYPE, and a HASTY CONCLUSlON is drawn from this IRRELEVANT assertion. No proof of this statement is offered, for one would be hard put to provide evidence that it was standard for members of a given profession to own three cars, let alone three Rolls Royces. UNSUBSTANTIATED statements like these hold no water for the objective reader.. You bring up the point that’ medical students “are educated at taxpayers’ (read yours and mine) expense”, as though they were a privileged class. Are you and I not also benefiting from the same tax subsidized education system? The comment that doc-

tors have an income in multiples of ours makes the DUBIOUS ASSUMPTION that our (read yours and mine) ability to earn equal or greater remuneration is somehow limited by the fact that we are not physicians. This is very twisted logic. There exist other professional avenues with immense economic potential (like being a dentist, lawyer, hockey player, or journalist for that matter). All these points show your argument to be fallacious. Your contention is clouded in irrelevance.’ Now, I would like to express my opinion about this article and its manner of presentation. You bear the titles common to the journalistic profession, and attempt to carry out its function. Yet, this article is a sad attempt to fit in those shoes. The audience would expect the efforts of no less than six so called journalists to produce something more coherent. It also appears to be very narrow minded and as it proves nothing, it is exactly that - nothing, a vacuum.’ The qualified journalist draws the reader’s attention with a catalogue of sound reasoning, not cheap shots and harsh feelings. Did you think that you could flaunt your prejudice with journalistic impunity? Or was this an attempt to obtain rebuttals for filler space in the Imprint? Can we now entrust you to report newsworthy events and issues without biased ink? I suspect not. ’ Freedom of opinion is a function of democracy and vice versa. However, some degree of responsibility is required before you express your feelings to the public ear. Remember, you do not own this newspaper, you merely operate it. You have beenspared the financial responsibility that a privately owned tabloid would ac-quire when trying to alter common beliefs. It is analagous to

Dots deserve dough To the editor: This letter is in response to Imprint’s vile article entitled What’s up Dot? The shabby arguments presented in the- article clearly show that the authors are uninformed and jealous. A typical news report informs us that Doctor So-And-So earns ‘$130,000 a year. Should wedoas the Imprint does and gasp, shake our heads and marvel at doctor’s avarice? Let’s look at it from the doctor’s point of view first. The $130,000 is his or her gross revenue. Typically 40-50 per cent of it goes towards office expenses (medical equipment, of- ’ fice rental and nursing and secretarial help) - this fact, which is usually omitted, starts to put things into perspective. Since doctors do not receive company benefits, they must save for their own retirement and pay their own

about:

There’s a joke current on Jarvis St. in Toronto which says that all the members of Metro’s gay community came originally from Waterloo and Ottawa. I was told it, and that it is a joke, by a guy who lives on Jarvis and is gay. So what’s the joke? I guess it’s that the Bible-belters and the bureaucrats, or their children anyway, come out of the closet in droves once they hit the big city. My inform-ant didn’t say that. In fact, he denied that being homosexual had anything to do with one.‘s upbringing. It was less ” a choice of behaviour and alternative life style” (my terms) than “a sexual orientation established by age two” (his terms). We agreed to disagree and to discuss it further, me citing Foucault’s History of Sexuality, vol. I, to him, he citing his own and his friends’ experience to me. But homosexuality,. its origin and nature, wasn’t what our meeting was about. It was about the fact that, at age 36, he was first of his circle (and of the Jarvis St. gay community) to contract AIDS; that, with less than a year to live, he was scared. I had known Gary 20 years ago, in my first church. He was a shy, gangling teenager; I was a zealous young student minister. His parents were deeply involved in the little portable church I lived in and preached at near Newmarket (while commuting weekdays to seminary in Toronto), and Gary, for the first and only time in his life, was “affected” by religion. Then our paths diverged. I was ordained and sent off to Great Whale River, then the Queen Charlottes, then Bella-Bella, Yellowknife, New Orleans . . . Gary left the bleak little subdivision, entered the filmindustry and the fast life, came out of the closet and eventually settled, via Morocco (the haunt of Paul Bowles and William Burroughs) on Jarvis St. in Toronto. The stage was set for our meeting again. The catalyst was AIDS. AIDS, as I’m learning from Gary, is a disease whose victims pose a threat to no one, but who are themselves vulnerable to everyone. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is, as its name implies, a condition characterized by a collapse of the body’s natural immunity against disease. Your resistance to any viral disease, e.g. pneumonia, is low and gets lower the longer you have AIDS. (It’s usually a particular type of pneumonia that finishes off the AIDS victim.)

AIDS

bytheRkvYDr.TomYork

It was while he was desperately ill with pneumonia, before he was diagnosed as having AIDS, that Gary came to the despairing conclusion that “something was missing,” and that he must look me up. His friends, of whom he has many and whose network reaches to - Waterloo (and, no doubt, Ottawa), tracked me down and now Gary and I are in touch again. He’s changed, I’ve changed, but after an hour together it was the same as old times - except that time is short and the end is in sight. What do you say to a man dying of AIDS? Neither of us knew, but I was pretty sure it was the same as what you’d say to dying man, period. After all, the Christian should speak as a dying man to a dying ‘men., So I did, we did. Everything second-rate and smug and complacent was purged from our conversation and we made plans to meet again, to be friends for as long asit lasts, for our mutual benefit. It was almost as though the shade of old Walt Whitman were present-that archetypal homosexual poet--presiding over this colloquy between dying men, naked minds. Lusty old bearded Walt Whitman thundering: Cameradd, I give you my hand! I give you my love more precious than money, I give you myself before preaching or 1a.w; Will you give me yourself? Will you come travel L with me? Shall we stick by each other as long as we live? But there was also a darker side to it which had nothing to do with either homosexuality or with AIDS, but with death: a man in the prime of his life knowing that he must die within a year. What would you do? Why, carry on with life, of coursewhich is what Gary is doing: II There’s a scene at the end of Joyce Cary’s novel, The Horse’s Mouth, in which Gully Jimpson, a loveable old painter who has fallen off a ladder, lies dying in a Catholic hospital. The Sister tending him overhears him laughing to himself and says, “Mr., Jimpson, don’t you think that, at a time like this, you should laugh a little less and pray a little more?” To which Gully Jimpson interrupts his laughter to say, “It’s the same thing, Madam,” and flips out.

Engineers -

To the editor: Why does Mike Badali think our t-shirts are unreasonable? Does he realize that Thompson’s article applies to students everywhere *(Soap Bpx, Imprint, May 30)? Does Badali realize that Thompson chose to pick on engineering students because’we are the most socially active group on campus? Let’s put this into perspective. Engineering students generate more positive public opihion through charitablb works than all other faculties combined. “Oh, ya?” you say? Just think about it. As a non-engineering student, when was the last time you were

asked to push a bus through downtown K-W? Or the last time the professors in your faculty raced tricycles? Or, in fact, the last time that any event was held within your faculty that generated donations to a worthy social cause? In the. engineering faculty, these types of events are held at least once a year, with some events ocurring once every four months. There are some events, like the Havenger Stunt, which are open to teams from other faculties. No other faculty enters a team. Why? In our last Stunt, one of the items on the list was “a Ret student in

drag”. A few hardy Ret souls did show- up cross-dressed, and one made a comment about how amazing it was that “all these people stay awake on a Friday night gathering things, and then come into school Saturday morning, and have a lot of fun doing it”. So why do other faculties not organize events of this nature? Apathy? Jealousy? Lack of some kind of social organization within the faculty? As for negative public opinion, again engineering students generate more than all other faculties combined. Or do we? There is nothing being published within the engineering faculty now that can be considered socially unacceptable, nor are we committing any publicly offensive acti. So where does the current dose of bad publicity come from? The answer is simply this: other faculties keep dredging up the past (I should say negative past), and refuse to give us credit for the positive aspects of engineering, past or present. We have laid our past to rest, as have the Board of Governors. Why do students in other faculties not leave it alone? Badali also asks why we didn’t do something to better our public relations. Let me ask Badali why Doug Thompson didn’t write a serious article on the problems of getting a university education, instead of stirring up trouble? I believe that the t-shirts are a reasonable response to an unreasonable article, and that students in other faculties should look at the positive (i.e. charitable) events that EngSoc supports, and try to match them. Duncan Gibbons -Club Mech

by Doug Thompson Imprint staff . Nobody at UW is happy with Queen’s Park this weekfoljowing the announcement computer fees are to be banned - but not yet. . . Student and administrgtion leaders agree the taxpayer should contribute more to universities. The administration thinks students should pay more, but the government once again has put limits on the fees universities can charge. The student leaders argue that many students can’t pay more, and that increased fees prevent some people from getting a university education. The administration also argues that UW’scomputer expertise and “excellence” warrant higher fees. It was the argument used when the computer fee was introduced, and it’s the argument being used by UW (without success) at Queen’s Park. You have to marvel at the political ineptness of UW’s leaders. For decades, successive Ontario governments have maintained a commitment to two principles: 1) universal accessibility of post-secondary education to all qualified students regardless of their financial means, and 2) uniformity of costs for comparable programmes across this geographically and economically diverse province. The argument has always been that, if one school is allowed to charge more than another, a two-tier educational system would result, with good schools for the rich and mediocre ones for the poor (like the U.S. system). Like Don Quixote, UW is tilting at windmills. What kind of ivpry tower fantasies (or could it be sheer arrogance?) makes UW President Doug Wright think he can overturn such longstanding public -policies? It’s not likely iri any scenario, yet that near impossibility is the star to which Doug Wright and the boys have hitched UW’s wagon. Now UW is saying standardized funding means the government wants mediocrity. The argument is absurd. Differential funding causes mediocrity in some places, and encourages excellence in others (just like in the U.S.). Unless UW can successfully demo& strate that all Ontario schools are already mediocre, its point is simply silly. In fact, Ontario universities have an international reputation for a high standard of academic achievement. We don’t have good schools and bad schools, we have good schools! And this same Doug Wright is the guy they just reappointed for another six-year term as UW’s president! It can be argued that Queen’s Park should have put Wright in his place by retroactively banning the computer fee. Of course, as the government pointed oirt, this would only hurt students. Wright, in his unilateral attempt to change education policy in this province, committed the university to spend a lot of money it didn’t have. Such irresponsibility, if you or I did it, would lead to bankruptcy. But Wright was playing political craps with your education and mine, and while he was willing to jeopardize that, the provincial government was not. To keep students off the hook, Wright has to be let off too. But the underlying problem is that universities believe they should receive more money from taxpayers. Most student leaders tend to agree. However, if universities are to achieve that goal, a political process of demonstrating the worthiness of such investments to the Ontario public is required. Cheap manoeuvres to wring a few more bucks from students who are already the most financially disadvantaged members of the university community is hardI1 the way to convince Ontario taxpayers of this institution’s worthiness. Nor are arbitrary attempts to upstage the political process b\ twisting the government’s arm (like inventing new fees which circumvent provincial regulations). Such measures can only lead the public to view this university with even more suspicion and contempt. Academics are often accused of living in an “ivory tower world” divorced from social realities. It is sad to say, but DOUQ Wright is succeeding admirably in proving that stereotype to be correct. The government, after all, represents the people. If the Ontaric public wants more university education, it wiII get it. If it doesn’t, who are university presidents to force them!’ And when it comes to the political process, students and the administration, working together, are likely to accomplish muctmore than either group working alone. How can such co-operatior be generated though, when the administration insists on attacking students? And how can UW be taken seriously at Queen’s Park if il doesn’t respect the longstanding political will of Ontario’s people tc have universal accessibility and universal excellence?

Imprint,

Once again UW students, alumni, faculty and staff proved their skill and enthusiasm as phonathon volunteers this spdng. In 10 evenings of calling, more than 320 volunteers from Arts, Engineering, HKLS, Math and Science participated in telephoning their faculty alumni all across Canada. A total of 1,653 alumni donated an impressive %6,217.* Money donated through the phonathons goes directly to the graduate’s faculty for academic development, scholarships, and expanding and improving laboratory equipmevt. The one to one phone calls are not only important as fundraising events, but they also ensure UW is mailing information on alumni programs and services to current addresses. According to Pauline Hall, phonathon coordinator, “the calibre of volunteers was outstanding, their enthusiastic and dedicated approach was apparent from beginning to end. The pace was very fast and exciting, some faculties even held best-costume contests. Many of the volunteers were first-time participants, but several were experienced callers out for another evening of / phonathon fun.” More than just fun, the phonathon gives participants a chance to speak to alumni and learn how they are applying their university education. Student callers gained some valuable information about companies

by Josette deBrouwer fie Gazette, University of Western Ontario At least eight grievances have been filed against the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) in the wake of a new organizational r&%ructuring scheme. The plan calls for the elimination of one staff position and the redefinition of some other jobs. Complaints about the restructuring surfaced at the OFS general meeting held June 9-l 5 at Queen’s University in Kingston. Peter McVey, vice-president of CUPE local 281 and an OFS researcher, said the grievances have been filed because hiring and transfer procedures within the staff restructuring did not follow the collective agreement. OFS Chairman Matt Certosimo said the grievances are natural in the transition from one kind of staff structure to another. “A grievance is not a crisis point. It is merely a filing of a concern in regards to management,” he said. by &drew Love But Liz Lovis, outgoing vicechairThe Queen’s Journal, Queen’s Uniman of the federation, said the probversity lem in management is much worse than anyone %alized.

Paul Dickersgill, president of the McGill student union, was unaware of Queen’s decision not to divest. But when told of the specifics of the debate, he pointed out that McGill’s level of investments relating to South Africa was substantially less than IQueen’s. Kamleh Nicola, vice-president of external affairs for the Dalhousie student union, also knew nothing about Queen’s decision. And she also pointed out Dalhousie only had to divest $6 million worth of investments. “We are not hurt financially by divesting our shares in these companies and as a result there was not much opposition to our decision,” said Nicola. “Our campus is very concerned with this kind of issue because 10 per cent of the school’s enrolment is a foreign population.” She added she felt it is unfortunate that Queen’s did not divest because the more universities that divest, the more strength the message will carry.

Spice a treat for ’ Fed Hall fans

Mike O’Driscoll imprint staff Fed Hall was treated to a blast of the sunny south on Friday night as the Caribbean band Spice made a more than worthwhile appearance. The band was there to get people up and partying, and it worked, considering it only took eight resonating bars of music to fill the dancefloor. Spice hails from Barbados where they’ve gained a considerable fol_ lowing along with honours such’as Band of the Year and Record of the Year. The four original members have been together for 10 years and have managed to put out a total of five albums, all of which have yet to be released in Canada. Alan Sheppard leads the band on

keyboards and vocals while Dean Straker lends a note with backup vocals and guitar. The rhythm section is comprised of Roger Foster on bass and Greg Skeete on drums as well as their most recent member, percussionist Michael “Masher” Cadogan.

Masher has an impressive background having worked with 20th Century Rebels and Crack of Dawn. He also got his start in the industry under the guiding hand of Memo Acavedo of Weather Report. Masher’s recent single, which made the charts at Western. is a blast at P.W. Botha and Company entitled Apartheid Insane. He says because people listen to musicians they should say something important as

opposed to singing about “this woman or that woman.” Spice started the evening off with a suitable cover; The-Arrows’ Hot Hot Hot, which pretty well describes the atmosphere. Despite a promo playlist of 90 per cent covers, the band stuck mostly to originals, providing an interesting blend of rock/calypso/reggae. Songs such as You Got Me Crazy For You, and I Want to Get High boasted a mixture of solid guitar, full vocals and an incredibly tight rhythm section. For the most part, both the orisinals and the covers were well rYeceived by the audience. UB40, of which Straker says “these guys are friends of ours and I hope someday

Surprisingly, Spice also oozed out a version of the Beatles’ Let It Be, with a tasteful Calypso touch. Speaking of that “calypso touch”, Straker claims that’s exactly what the band wants to maintain when they return to Canada to cut an album later this summer. He says they’re searching for a producer to give them the technological finesse they’ve lacked in Barbados without compromising their sound. Still, he figures the band stands a good ‘chance of making an impact on the Canadian market. With an album just released in England, Straker says of Barbados, “it’s time to ex-

ana %vocaIs.

pand - we’ve gone as far as we can there.” Expansion might be a good idea in more than one sense; a common complaint being Spice produces a somewhat repetitive sound that blends into one indistinguishable mass of grinding sweat. Actually, the repetition went a bit too far when the band repeated Hot Hot Hot and Red Red Wine for the encore. Fortunately an anticlimax was averted with a (beleive it or not) calypso version of When the Saints

In.

Not meaning to end on a bad note I should mention that a friend of mine scribbled “It was beautiful” about half a dozen times on my notebook. She meant the music, and she was right.

Glass Tiger: afar cry from Beatlemania by Fleur Macqueen Imprint staff Screams arose from the teenage girls pressed against the snow fence as a black van pulled up to the Waterloo Park bandshell Saturday afternoon, June 21. As five guys with identical spiked haircuts piled out of the vehicle and ran backstage, I surveyed the mass of preppily clothed teenagers with pocket cameras there to gape- at Glass I iger, currently on Canada’s Top Ten charts. Glass Tiger was performing at the City of Waterloo’s annual free summer music festival, Sounds of Summer, which took place last weekend. Eventually, the band reappeared on stage, along with the emcee from 570 CHYM. When introducing the band, the CHYM rep said the event reminded him of Beatlemania, a sentiment that probably soared over the heads of the girls in the front row. Personally, I didn’t see the resemblance. Glass Tiger, all the way from Newmarket, is .headed by lead singer Alan Frew. He is a blonde stockcharacter with a Scottish accent which makes. you wonder if he’s cultivated it since leaving Glasgow, recognising the effect it has on young women.

Frew crooned mundane love, songs to the bubble gum set, who ate them up and begged for more. (Glass Tiger’s first album, Thin Red Line (referred to as “The Album” by Frew, emphasizing the group’s newness on the market), holds such meaningful lyrics as “Oh, the night is young/So what can we do?” and “Just call my name/I will be there” repeated endlessly. A l

A

good

Musically there is not much to say about the band. Glass Tiger is an unoriginal formula band, consisting of Frew, drummer Michael Hanson, guitarist Al Connelly, keyboardist Sam Reid and bassist Wayne Parker. They do seem to have the desired effect on their fans, however. Frew teased the girls in the standard heartthrob manner, urging them to l

come closer to him, reach out and touch him, despite the policeguarded fence keeping the audience 50 feet from the stage. Glass Tiger finished their hourlong set with their hit Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone, which lacked a little without Bryan Adams’ vocals. But this song, which Frew introduced with “If you don’t know the lyrics by now, you’ll never know

them”, got everyone going, including the numerous families and scattered students at the back. The success of the final song, to which many of the audience sang and danced, further emphasized Glass Tiger’s status as a one-hit wonder. Would they even have considered playing Don’t Forget Me before the end of the concert?

c

review or a-very good revue

by Andrew Saikali Imprint $taff The very fabric of our society was turned inside out Wedneday night as High 8Os, the “hot comedy revue” directed by Torontonian Ellen Hitchcock, and presented by UW’s Creative Arts Board/Upstage Productions, subjected everything from religion to sex to politics to a dose of irreverent humour, biting satire, and any other modified noun you care to use. Without giving too much away (second and final performance is tonight), the revue was a multimedia show comparable in format to Second City or SNL with a touch of Vaudeville -- 80s style.

Among the choreographed musical numbers are We’re not Gonna Drink It and (Let’s Do The) Lunch Think (Again), each laden with appropriate and extremely clever lyrits, and performed with a big group sound (which, in the case of the former number puts Twisted Sister to shame). Speaking of music, the Pit Band - Joe Morrison k&W, Dave Pollon (guitar), and Paul Andry (bass) do a first-rate job at background music, segues, etc. Apart from ensemble song and dance, High 80s includes sketches and videos about a . . . shall we say slightly strange couple whose son is possessed; a job interview in which one needs a few . . . connections;

men - from an ardent man-hating woman’s point of view; pain - from an S&M dominatrix’s point of view; industrial strength beer, and a polititally conscious hitch-hiker. Then there’s the interview with an invisible man whose invisible dog does some visible damage to the interviewer - a beautiful piece of mime. There’s also news, and a man-onthe-street report - the question is “How do you spell ,Khaddafi?” (Gadaffi? - whatever). Then there are two skits - one staged, one videoed, each recurring in modified versions sporadically throughout the show. On stage we have a politically enlightening summit meeting between Reagan and$

Gorbachev. And on video we have a brilliant set of TV commercials for none other than the Roman Catholic Church -- done a la American Express. Blending sketch with song and dance, the Dr. Ruth segment was perhaps the highlight of the revue. Enough said. Oh yeah - the cast. Mlles. Ferry, Fife, Garnier, Gillard, and Isaac and Messrs. Cooper, Lawson, MacIsaac, Roehl, and Sellens, proved undeniably that the creative and performing arts can hold their own at U’W. High 80s - second and last performance is tonight - Fed Hall 8:00 p.m. HOW _ do you spell Koddaffi?

This is a marvelous book which brings together ‘diverse disciplines and approaches to the Arctic. Knowing that each of these approaches is an overlay and constitutes an Urnwelt (a word Lopez glosses as “self-world”: _a lemming has an Urnwelt; so do we), he is at pains to superimpose different visions -of the Arctic - the polar bear’s, the narwhal’s, the muskox’s, the Eskimo’s, the Arctic bota-, nist’s, the polar explorer’s, as well as that of the oil- company executive and the faceless bureaucrat - in his attempt to render the land itself as it has been imagined and explored and inhabited through the ages. To this end, he is concerned with

case of schizophrenia. First, it’s a romance, then, a comedy; next, a burned-out loser melodrama. Couple this with a liberal helping of cliches and an uninteresting, depthless plot, and the result is an embarassing bore. In fact, Trouble in Mind is probably the only picture that could make its audience feel embarassed for Lori Singer, as she gazes soulfully into Kris Kristofferson’s eyes and says “I think you’re a good man who’s had bad luck.” Truly hair-raising. The movie’s personality-swings make the already uninspired plot even more aimless and directionless. As the movie opens, John Hawkins (Kristofferson), hardened ex-cop, emerges from the bowels of the state pen, and promptly tromps over to Wanda’s Cafe. Wanda (Genevieve Bujold) offers Hawkins a room upon his arrival, which is co-incident with the arrival of a

The latest art exhibit in the Modern Languages gallery consists of selections from.. the University of Waterloo Permanent Collection. This particular exhibit includes a wide variety of art forms, both in style and in media. Included in the show are art pieces from many different media. For such a small display, the variety is really impressive. Silkscreen, acrylic, watercolour, and oil are represented, and from the less common media are aluminum, concrete, urethane foam and basswood. The variety does not stop at media. Styles range from very realistic, as in Diane Stewart’s works, to very abstract, like Tony Urquart’s. The exhibit touches on just about everything in between. Interesting to note are the donations from foreign countries to the

And the Arctic has many hidden edges; for 10 months of the year the Arctic is a twilit land. For his exploration of this enormous land and sea and icescape, which includes portions of five modern nations, Lopez has ransacked scientific and historical and mythic. lore, as well as traveled widely (always, one gets the feeling, as a hanger-on: a Jonah on the whaler, an Ancient Mariner on Greenpeace, an investigative journalist on a government icebreaker, and a spiritualist on scientific expeditions). He has seen, and studied, and returned to

in Mind young couple from the country, Coop (Keith Carradine) and Georgia (Singer), who park their camper in Wanda’s parking lot. When Coop falls in with a jewelery-stealing crowd, effectively leaving Georgia on her own, his marriage begins to disintegrate; Georgia turns to Hawkins for comfort. None of this is made particularly clear, mind you, since the dialogue is hopelessly mired in a festering bog of B-movie cliches. Trouble in Mind fails because it attempts to merge the futuristic, hard-boiled feel of ,Blade Runner with the arty, stylish, ultra-cool feel of Miami Vice. Such an experiment is bound to flop, as Trouble. in Mind has more than proven. In attempting to generate an earthy yet stylish atmosphere of desolation and loneliness, the film’s makers have emptied it of any intelligence, compassion or sensitivity.

appeals university’s collection. Covering the far right wall of the gallery is a large, exquisitely beautiful painting from the Republic of China. Thailand also donated to the collection, with a colourful, culturally interesting piece. Several pieces in the display were rather intriguing and should not be missed. The triad of twisting, gnarled, carefully carved basswood provide a somewhat eerie third dimension to the exhibit. They have a grace that is calming to look at, and are so finely carved that they have the appearance of seaweed swaying gently in the water. I found the piece on the far left wall particularly noteworthy as well. Created by Louis de Niverville, it is an interesting painted collage of various textures. The show in the Modern Languages gallery is a very diverse one, featuring an extremely wide selection. It is definitely worth seeing, there is something in it for everyone.

cription, sug’gests otherness, and invokes reverence. In attempting to evoke these and many other Arctic phenomena, such as white-out, a’ skein of snow geese taking flight, a saussat (an opening which the ice sheet constricts) where hundreds of narwhals and belukhas may be trapped, Lopez often borrows the, techniques of landscape painters, especially the luminists whose preoccupation was with light. Lopez’s preoccupation is with light, too, as he gently interrogates the land to see what mysteries still inhere there. Wonder informs his vision of the Arctic, an almost naive wonder, but he has taken the time and the trouble to inform his vision on a scale unprecedented in books j about the Arctic.

I tell us . . . . What does this modern prophet have to report? First, that the Arctic , will endure. It has endured and will endure, and probably the musk-ox with it. Second, that a world without animals is a terrible’ prospect, especially to an Eskimo. “These Tununiarusirmiut men . . . knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, beyond any hesitation, what made them happy, what gave them a sense of satisfaction, of wealth. An abundance of animals.” And with animals of all kinds the XArctic is abundant. Third, that it is only when viewed from afar as a desert that the Arctic is endangered. When viewed close-up and with patience - whether that of an Eskimo waiting at a seal-hole, or of a botanist spending half a day classifying one tussock of grasses - it is a refuge and a ground for renewal. .Thus Lopez’s final wisdom: “The risk we take is of finding our final authority in the metaphors rather than in the land.” On every other page Lopez slips in an ecological warning. Of bleak little Pingok Island, for example, having rhapsodized over its flora pointed out, with land use and minand fauna, he says: “It is in a place eral exploitation. like this that we would unthinkingly In the end, Arctic Dreams may store poisons or test weapons.” Or, be read as a defense brief for proper praising the resourcefulness of curuse of the land, with Lopez represious polar bears who “may in the enting not so much the Inuit as the end eat more often,” he observes animals who inhabit the land. “We that, “today, with the spread of oil need an -attitude of enlightened recamps and the abandonment of milspect which will make both races itary installations, curious bears are (Eskimos and whites) feel more ethisometimes killed by the things they cally at ease with animals, more certest .” tain of following a dignified course in Lopez rightly deplores the “witthe years ahead, when the animals less insensitivity, and the phony sense of adventure” that propelled _ . will still be without a defense against us.” an earlier generation of adventurers There is in Arctic Dreams a connorthward to perpetrate the car. stant invocation of a “third dimennage of polar bears, muskoxen, narsion.” Icebergs, aurora borealis, and whals and caribou. &But a more fata. morganas involve the viewer in daunting ecological threat looms -a third dimension which defies desahead.

by Pete Lawson Imprint Staff After more than a half-decade of playing their own music, Breeding Ground, those darlings of Queen Street have finally released their first LP. They have had previous EP releases, Breeding Ground and Reunion, which probably received moderate attention. The newest offering is a good blend of acoustic and electronic sounds - the acoustic adding the punch and rhythm and the electronic adding textural support. The number of songs is slight at six and the album lasts no more than 30* minutes, but the added bonus of the Reunion EP makes the purchase worthwhile. The hottest tracks on are the dance potential tunes, Turn to Dust and Happy Now I Know. Turn to Dust is pulsed by a bassline which should be requested at your favourite dance spot. The positive sound of Happy Now I Know will probably be the “HIT” of the album. The lyrics rejoice with the discovery of Christ in life. ~From a group who by Tom Rand Imprint Staff Frankenchrist. It’s an insight on a rebellion’s reasons. It’s fast. It’s youth throwing punk-chic out the window. It’s hard. It’s songs of anger and change. It’s true to it’s mark. It’s viscous vinyl and articulate anger that breeds compassion and vision. Frankenchrist is big, black boots crushing plastic ideals. Hate hinders many, but not the Dead Kennedys. Frankenchrist is 10 tracks of hate to love and cherish. At My Job: assembly-line hate change, boredom and bass. MTV Get Off The Air: good sarcasm mixes fun and frustration on dying imagination. Stars And Stripes of Corruption: actions to words and words to the thinking youth’s madness. The rest? Lots of love. Lots of hate. Lots of change. The album seethes with the mood of a generation-misunderstood. It balks at nothing, stops for everything. It’s the Jam’s rebellion for America and new times, and it’s a voice for a violence few understand. Bloating mediocrity bursts from hearing sounds ring true. In this album, Jello Biafra reveals the underlying contrasts of Punk’s screams: hate for compassion and anger for care. Gotta hate. Gotta care. Gotta give a damn. Hear Frankenchrist and you have to.

“In

by Andrew SaikaliImprint staff I’m still not too sure where I’ve heard the lead singer (Iva Davies)before, but he sounds very familiar. And that’s about par for Measure for Measure. All the songs, good and bad, send one’s mind a-wandering through vast mental files of rock groups and their respective sounds. The instrumentation to No Promises, for instance, sounds a hell of a lot like This Is Not America (David Bowie/Pat Metheny). Even the vocals bear similarity to recent Bowie, with a hint of Bryan Ferry. Cross The Border, on the other hand, has a touch of the Tears For Fears sound thrown into what could easily have been a Simple Minds song. These resemblances hold for most of the album - the most pervasive being the smooth Bryan Ferry sound. The Ferry/Roxy Music influence is probably due in part to Rhett Davies, co-producer of this and various Roxy/Ferry ventures, as well as to Brian Eno (early Roxy, Fripp, etc. etc.), who does some texturing on Measure for Measure. Other production is done by David Lord (Peter Gabriel). The sound is smooth and clean - relying heavily on keyboards - lots of pianos and synths. No Promises, Cross The Border and Spanish Gold are all solid tracks - smooth vocals on top of a wall of sound. Angel Street is also a nice mellow tune. Occasionally the tracks push smoothness a bit too far. At times, they seem to be on the verge of breaking out with some power . . . but nothing happens. You’re left thinking - yeah, ok, but it could’ve been stronger. One exception is Mr. Big, which breaks from the flow and emerges with some power. Lucky Me tries to do the same, but at the expense of the melody. The best track, one which fuses the biting with the smooth, and hey you can even hear some guitars stand out, is Baby You’re So Strange, the final t rat k. Overall, Icehouse’s Measure For Measure is a good LP that can stand up to repeated listenings. Just don’t expect anything too original.

by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff It may be true that the last thing the world needs is another loud, sloppy rock band, but we can always use a good one. And Vancouver’s Slow is a good one. Slow doesn’t have the correct influences for the acceptable face of today’s pop (there’s more of Grand Funk Railroad and BTO in them than The Velvet Whatsitsname) and they tread that invisibly thin line between the great trash of garage rock and the pure trash of lame-brained, power-riffing young punk rebels looking for a cause. But what ultimately saves them is their unpretenTom Anselmi’s oddly tiousness, compelling singing, and the revelation that rough, fast music is not devalued by having a bit of a tune to it. Once the excruciating grind of the opening riff of Have Not Been The Same hurls itself into the thick guitar buzz of the chorus, Against The Glass is largely Anselmi’s record. Sounding like Iggy Pop dredged out of the sewer after an all-night whiskey bout with Tom Waits, Anselmi utters growls that tend to snap heads back and get the neighbours banging on the walls. There’s nothing here that you haven’t already heard a thousand times already, but if Slow can be faulted for anything, it’s for reinforcing all the ugly ROCK cliche& by making them so damn infectious. Unhip, uncool, and as ashamed as I am to admit it, I like it lots.

10,000 Maniacs: impressive DAYOFF One man’s struggle to take

it easy.,

by Andrew Saikali Imp&t staff From John Hughes, the man who churns out brat-pack movi& year after year, comes an effectively nonbrat-pack film that competes with the best of ‘em. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has box office hit written all over it. As such, many so-called enlightened critics would possibly brush it aside as summer fluff - superficial, lacking in plot credibility, and so on. Not this critic. In the case of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, I say:’ Screw credibility - the movie is funny. And that’s endugh. After all, exaggeration is aF art form in itself. Set in Chicago, the film is a-dayin-the-life of high school senior Ferris Bueller whoi. . . .um, has better things to do on a bright sunny dag than sit in school. , School - her& we have exaggeration at its best. There’s the principal trying to assert authority through a persoya vendetta against Ferris. The students are all lifeless morons, and this makes for some pretty funny teaching methods. Watch f&r the English Lit. and American History teachers - each droning on, failing to reach the unreachable students who have mentally left the classroom and drifted off into la-la land. Meanwhile , Ferris has convinced parents, school and community at large that he is violently ill. He’coerces his best friend Cameron, a hypochondriac from a rich but problem family, to join him in the fun. Together they manage td get Ferris’ girlfriend excused from school, and the three spend an eventful day in town. The high point is a parade through downtown Chicago in which Ferris hops on a float and leads the crowd i! a lip-synched rendition of Twist and Shout. Ferris is the kind of kid that can pull anything off and have the city behind him all . the way. There are various sub-plots including Ferris’ sister’s jealousy of her siblihg’s popularity and Cameron’s struggle for a more assertive existence. Each part seems to be perfectly cast - from the teachers, secretary (Herb’s wife on WKRP) and principal, to Cameron, and Ferris. j Matthew Broderick execute’s his’ performance of Ferris beautifully with wit, precision, and charm. The credit for this lies beyond the script - to Broderick’s own instinctive humour and stage presence. The guy is a natural. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off need never apologise for what it is - a naturally funny movie that seeks only to entertain. It suceeds. Recommended.

show

by Chris Wodskou ‘Not content with his blockbuster Independent Wednesdays concert at RPM, whiz kid promoter Elliott Lefko inaugurated The Real $5 Concert Series at RPM last Thursday (June 19) with 10,000 Maniacs presiding. Malcolm Burn, late of the not-so-tragically defunct Boys Brigade, opened the show with a solid, if unspectacular, set of basic synth-infiltrated pop with an edge. There were also faint traces of psychedelia and garage punk poking tlGr heads out occasionaffy. Pretty impressive for the unit’s second gig together, Matcolm Burn is a name to look out for. . . . as is Blue Rodeo who, on the evidence of their performance must surely be one of Toronto’s hottest live bands. It’s tempting to categorize them as new-age country rockers a la Green On Red or Long Ryders but it’s hardly as simple as that. Their music skirts the outer fringes of the mainstream, often plunging headlong into weird scenes courtesy of The Doors. Songs such as Railway Crash are surrealistically textural epics journeying across barren western landscapes where the horizon never-ends. Eden when they threatened to be lowered into the depths of being “just another roots rock-band”, the odd rhythms and jazzy key-tinkling of Bobby Wiseman consistently gave the feeling of something very much out of place but which works brillinatly. After their first couple of songs, it looked as though Jamestown, N.Y’s

10,000 Maniacs might be upstaged by Blue Rodeo. lO,OOO.Maniacs have developed a large and devoted following thanks to a warmly-received domestic record release and a widely exposed video. Aside from the dulcet-voiced dervish of a singer Natalie Merchant and the expressions of ascetic ecstacy of guitarist John Lombardo, the band seemed distant and uninspired at first. The playing was a flawless blend of sparkling folk arrangements with accordion and mandolin colouring the more standard pop components. Iriitially however, the passion that fuels their intensely articulate lyrics was missing. By the time they reached Scorpio Rising and the resplendent Can’tlgnore the Train, 10,000 Maniacs had found the drive which gives Merchant’s words spine-tingling immediacy and meaning. Despite Merchant’s whirling, the focus of the band’s drive was Robert Buck, staring blankly in front of him like some refugee from an accounting firm - a refugee with the quiet intensity of Anthony Perkins. He owned the last three songs as the Maniacs outdid anyone’s expectations with a funk scorcher, a hot Calypso number and an intense rendering of My Mother The War. 10,000 Maniacs may not have left Toronto with anymore fans than they arrived with. However, the converted who were preached to at RPM went home craving more of this word.

-Monoman

gets -nervous

Paul Done Imprint Staff By the time I got to Jeff Connoly, main man of Boston trash Kings,The Lyres, he was already well into his pre-gig juicing-up ceremonies, holding a beer i;l one hand and a screwdriver in the other. This combined with the fact they did not do their soundcheck (plagued with monitor prdblems) until after 8 p.m. meant my Guelph meeting with the Monoman might not be as congenial and enlightening as I had hoped - a fear well-founded as Jeff’s previous meetings with the Canadian Press had turned out less than successfully (I found out later). Here’s the way things turned out: Imprint: Just a couple of weeks ago, Imprint chatted to Prince Charles and the City Beat Band who are also from Boston. Is the Boston music scene really as diverse as his and your existence would indicate?

Jeff: The thing about the Boston music scene is that it changes every year because there is a huge battle of the bands every year with, like, 40 new bands in it every time. It’s a really big deal with money and stuff going to the winner. Til Tuesday , won a couple of years ago and they went, on to some pretty lucrative stuff. So, really, the scene changes every year. I: Are there any bands in particular from Boston that you like? J: Yeah, iome but no-one who I could single-out as being great or anything. I: Are there any bands in the states that you like? J: [I notice the increasing evasiveness] Yeah every year we find about four bands that we like from them opening for us. I: There are a lot of definite 60s influences in -your music, are there any bands in particular frori7 the 60s that influenced you or that you like? J: [indignantly] Cause we’re a garage group everyone thinks that w&‘re.into bands just cause they use

HIP HAPPENINGS There are some not-to-be missed shows coming up very soon in Toronto and elsewhere.

It’s got great songwriting. I: On to other things, have you felt the need to move out of Boston yet to help your career? J: Nah, at this stage all our distribution is independent and we licence our records out to a lot of peopleActually, I’m the only member in the band who’s really from Boston, but we’re still small enough that we can run everything out of Boston. As Monoman was now looking longingly towards the door and whatever lay beyond it, it seemed as though now might be a good time to wrap things up. I: You played Canada not long ago. What’s happened since then? J: The last time we played Canada, our drummer left us the night before we were going to hit the road. The guy had been with me for 10 years, so we found some kid to drum for us because we’d rather play like that than not at all. So someone told me about this drummer in Columbus Ohio who might work for the band. When we got back from Canada we flew the guy to Boston and he has been with us for maybe four months now. Things are coming along great because normally it takes at least six months to break a new drummer in and this guy is coming along real fast. I like playing Canada because I’ve got frien& I can stay with in Toronto. Roger Psupka of Room of Fools belts out a top 40tune June 13 at I: Any plans for the band?

orne~r , Six points

for safe exercise

by JoAnn Hutchison Imprint staff People should be aware of safe and unsafe exercises, since exercise is supposed to improve and maintain the health of our bodies, not destroy it. It is important to realize that any exercise has the potential to be harmful if done incorrectly. One must also realize some exercises carried out by a physically fit person may be harmful to someone who is not at the same fitness level. Other factors which could make exercises dangerous for an individual are age, medical problems, and physical abnormalities. The potential harm which can be done to your body through exercise can be avoided by following safety guidelines: 1) Use slow,static stretching which is held for 3-5 seconds rather than ballistic’stretching. Ballistic stretching stretches the muscles through momentum by bouncing or bobbing movements. This type of stretching may cause a stretch beyond the normal range of motion, straining the muscles unnecessarily. 2) Avoid exercise which causes undue stress on a joint or muscle. For exa’mple, deep knee bends‘ may cause knee problems by overstretching the knee ligaments. Straight leg raises or situps place tremendous strain on the lower back by pulling the ilopsoas muscle. Leg raises are safe if the knees are brought to the chest and then lifted into the air or lowered to the ground. Bending the knees for situps is also beneficial since the involvement of the iliopsoas muscles is decreased, thus increasing the involvement of the abdominal muscles. 3) Breathe properly. Proper breathing is important when exercising, since ineffective exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen places a tremendous strain on the whole cardiovascular system. Blood flow is dangerously inhibited if the pressure on the chest cavity is-greatly increased by holding the breath during a strenuous exercise such as situps. Remember to exhale on exertion. 4) Wear proper clothing. Loose, worn out shoes do not provide proper support for the feet and often cause injury. Clothing which is appropriate for the activity and for your body’s needs should be worn. 5) ,Warm-up and cool down properly. Muscles are much like up properly, they will snap bubblegum - if they are not warmed instead of stretch. A good warm-up also includes a circulatory warm-up to cause the vessels of the body to open up slowly to allow for the increased circulation of blood, oxygen, and nutrients. Cool-down is the reverse of warm-ups.. It is a gradual decrese in movement which prevents ‘pooling of the blood in the * muscles and veins. 6) Work at your own level. Over-exertion is dangerous because even the safest of exercise can be harmful if your body is not yet ready for length and frequency of your workouts. Exercise is beneficial, but only if done properly. The best exercise you can give your body is the exercise-of common sense and safety precautions.

C-R World Cup

_

by Grant Grisdale Campus Retreat ion It may not be the World Cup, but the soccer season thus far for Campus Recreation has been one of many upsets and triumphs. There are 25 teams involved in the league which is divided into two leagues, A and B. In the A league (which consists of five teams), there is a battle for first place between Northern Blizzard and No Names. All teams are possible contenders for the championship. ’ In the B league, competition is a little more- severe as there are 20 teams involved. OP Amps, Civil Serpents, Conrad Grebel and Blackstone Huntclub are vying for first place in division I. 2B Mech and Civouplay are battling it out for top spot in division II. The Playoffs in July should prove to be exciting. Overall, there have been no major problems and the soccer season should prove to be one of the best for Campus Recreation. “World Cup” fever has never hit the University campus better! Good Luck to all competitors.

by Denise Glazebrook Campus Recreation Do you suffer from PACaphobia?? Do nightmares of getting eternally lost in the monstrous brown building plague you every time exams roll around? Are you one of the students on this campus who picks up a campus recreation brochure every term, only to toss it into your waste-basket three weeks, later because you need the extra room in your desk drawer? Have you reached 4A and never yet darkened the door of the locker room? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, now is the time to overcome vour fears! Read on. . . I was a PACaphobic until May 1 of this year. On that fateful day, I said goodbye to my safe, comfortable niche in the world of Artsiedom and made the long journey across campus to PAC 2039 i the nerve centre of Campus Recreation (C-R) and Athletics in the Physical Activities Complex (PAC). Through the past six weeks, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve probably encountered the greatest culture:shock thus far in my somewhat sheltered life. I’ve also experienced great triumphs, for I can now proudly say, “I am an ex-PACaphobic”. For those of you still suffering from this crippling phenomenon, help is on the way. The following is a step-by-step program for tot al recovery: 1. Never believe that it’s too late to befriend the PAC. This is my 18th term living in Waterloo and I’ve just reached the point where I wo.uld consider entering the PAC for reasons not academic or financial. . 2. Don’t be intimidated. I know the sinking feeling that sets in as you watch 40 trim, tanned students, all in perfectly coordinated aerobics outfits, beaming with pleasure as they bound up and down the staircase. Forget them. Give yourself a pat on the back for deciding to appear in public in your Grade 9 gym uniform. Slap on a grin and relish experiencing something totally new. 3. Think Yuppie! You can enjoy all the benefits that a ritzy health club could offer you and more. Membership allows you to book courts, enjoy a sauna, work out with weights, toss around a volleyball and a whole lot more. 4. Try out the PAC ,on your own! Your friends will never know you’re fighting PACaphobia. You can swim, check out the exercise bikes or try the rowing machines. There’s a bulletin board on the first floor of the PAC across from the Equipment Centre that has a list of people willing to play squash or badminton with you. There ARE beginners on the list. Give someone \ a call! 5. Try out the PAC with a friend! Phobias are more easily overcome with a strong source of emotional support backing you up. Invite a fellow PACaphobic to explore the facilities with you. 6; If you don’t know,’ ask! There are a limited number of those bright yellow brochures left in the C-R/Athletics office. To find the office, simply exit the Campus Centre from the doors by the Imprint office; head toward the back end of the PAC; enter the doors marked Red ‘North and go through the door on the far left marked Department of Athletics. The office is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. The of-

. “I’ve never used the pool before. Could you tell me -how to go about it?“,’ the people who frequent the PAC can give you detailed explanations. Sound complicated? It doesn’t have to be. Just take a deep breath and Attack the PAC! You’ll be over your PACaphobia in no time at all.

fice is staffed by people who can answer all your questions about the activities and facilities the PAC houses. The brochure contains a map of the complex, which will help you find the equipment centre, the gyms, and more. 7. If it’s your first time using ‘the PAC - say so. If you say

succe$sful

by Mary Pat O’Conner ‘Badminton Club The UW Badminton Club was founded in the 1985 Winter term by Richard Pommainville and Dane Young. Its purpose was to provide court time and competition in a friendly atmosphere for the growing number of badminton enthusiasts on campus. Prior to its formation, the only time available for badminton was during open-time in the or Campus Recreation gyms, Badminton. It was felt, however, that these did not adequately meet the needs of many players. In order to play, you had to bring your own partner. As well, there was only one time slot a week specifically-for badminton, and this time was not always consistent. The w.orst problem, however, was obtaining a court. Unless you arrived early, your chances of getting a court in a reasonable amount of time were slim. Tending to ignore badminton etiquette, many people monopolized the courts. The club has solved many of these problems. We provide regular court times, currently Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to lo:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoons from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. Monday nights we play in the main gym, and at other times in the adjoining small gym (gym 3). Club members need not worry about bringing a partner as the club has developed its own court scheduling system that provides members with a variety of games and assured court rotation. As well as the obvious court advantages, the club holds social

events, about two a term, to allow members the opportunity to get to know one another. The club began with only a case of birdies and four nets donated by Campus Recreation. It _ now manages its own finances and has’ purchased a court schedule board and racquets for use by club members. Possible fu-, ture purchases include more racquets and a stringing kit. The club also sells T-shirts and golf shirts, with the university crest and club logo, to its members. . In past the club has sponsored clinics given by instructors from the Western Ontario Badminton Association (WOBA), an affiliate of the Ontario Badminton Association (OBA). The club has also sponsored members’ participation in Campus Recreation Badminton tournaments. The UW Badminton Club consists of members of all levels of ability from inexperienced beginners to advanced competitive players., some of ‘whom play for the varsity team. The club is a mixture of undergraduates, graduates and alumni, from a variety of disciplines. Currently we number about 110 members, only about a dozen of whom are women. This trend has been our only real disappointment to date. Club membership has grown at a steady rate, with numbers significantly exceeding expectations in past terms. Continued participation and encouragement have made the UW Badminton Club a great success. Come out and join us at any of our three allotted times. New members are always welcome.

B-ball playoffs by Charlotte Schwarzentruber Campus Recreation By now the basketball playoff positions will have been de‘tided, however this article was written last week and all comments are as of June 20. Walking Wounded continues to lead the A division with a record of 4-1, losing their first game by a mere nine points to Air Jordan. This was an important win for Air Jordan as it moves them into second spot. It was a spectacular evening for Derek Cornelius and Ed Cito who added 25 and 16 points re-

Women’s

spectively to the Celtics five point victory over the Tornadoes. Leading the B division is the PAS Outs followed by Hooptown Rats, Panama Jacks and Dr. Jeds. Hooptown Rats and Panama Jacks are up against each other in the final game. Both have a record of 5-1 with a plus and minus difference of 19. Some hot shooters on the night of June 18 in the B division include Shaukato Fattah of the Coop Cloppus with 19 points. Both Dean Byers and Dan Rowe from Spurn of Moment had 20 in their win over Reluctant Gerbils.

C-R b-ball

by Paul Marchildon Campus Recreation After three weeks of competitive play;all four women’s basketball teams have had a chance to play each other. Larry’s Byrds and West B Oldtimers are on top with two wins and one loss each. Mech Magic and East Quad are not too far behind with one win and two losses each. The highlight game of the season so far had to be Larry’s Byrds vs. West B Oldtimers, June 3, when the Byrds out-shot the Oldtimers 32-27. The Campus Recreation all-star “picks” for that game were Karen Clarke and Lynn Parent (Byrds) and Trudy Mohrhardt and Sue Smith (Oldtimers). Season games will continue for two more weeksand playoffs begin July 8. Come on out on Tuesday evenings 7 to 8 p.m. to cheer on your favourite teams!
