Poorly l-it paths by Marie Sedivy Imprint staff
Statistics on assaults reported Campus Security in 1984, and 1986 were released to the committee. While none of the reported oncampus incidents involved sexual intercourse or injury requiring hospitalization, Wendy Rinella, Women’s Commissioner with the Federation of Students, points out that repdrting of incidents is very loti. Statistics of the National Advisory Council on the Status of Women (NAC) indicate that one in four women has experienced some form of sexual harassment, and one in five women in Canada is’ sexually assaulted. The committee has identified three important areas that must be addressed in or;der to improve safety on campus: modifidation to
A committee studying sexual assault on the University of Wtiterloo campus has identified the poorly lit and isolated Minota Hagey path as a major problem area. The committee was established last December by the Federation of Students in response to students‘ anxiety concerning safety. The lack of proper lighting on several campus pathways was of particular concern. The committee‘s mandate was to gather data on the types of sexual assaults, number of incidents, and campus locations where they occurred and to make recommendations on’campus security. .

The graphic design o P a newspaper is one of its most important features, because it conveys the all-important first impression to the reader.

It has been found useful for all types of incidents, and is being continued despite instances of vandalism. The dommittee also urges the creation of a volunteer support network to help assault victims. At present, Counselling Services and Health and Safety have resources to deal with assault victims, but according to Rinella, ‘“There’s limited use. Nobody knows they’re. there.” By the beginning of- June, copies of the committee’s report will be available from the Women’s Commissioner, the Women’s Centre, Health and Safety, Counselling Services, Campus Security and the Turnkey desk. While the number of copies is limited, Rinella says “nobody would object to people photoco ying it.” In ad B ition to its repgrt, the committee has designed a brochure outlining safety precautions. Rinella admits safety precautions serve to keep victjms rather than criminals off the streets, but she points out that the brochure contains helpful tips ‘in case assault does occur. “Many people just freeze when somethilig like that happens. This shows them what they can do.” Emergency telephone numbers for victims and witnesses of assaults are also listed. The brochure will ‘be available in the fall term and will be included in frosh kits. To further increase awareness of sexual harassment and assault, a sexual harassment awareness week .is being organized by the Women’s Commissioner, The Women’s Centre, Women’s Studies, and WPIRG. Displays in the Campus Centre, speakers, and discussions are scheduled throughout the fi’rst week of June.

In the past, there have been opportunities to beat the Federation of Students at Trivial Pursuit or to get creamed by the Athena basketball team. This term, staff members are putting together a softball team. By the way, it is not difficult to join Imprint. All students (grad or undergrad, full-time or parttime) who have paid their $3.00 Imprint fee are already members of this non-profit organization and can earn voting Eights by contributing material and attending staff meetings. As has already been pointed out, Imprint is democratically run by students. There are weekly staff meetings (Fridays at noon) where concerns, sugges tions, and constructive criticism can be discussed. All students have speaking rights. Students who have contributed to four issues and attended four of the last eight staff meetings have voting rights. While this requirement guards against people voting on an issue they know Iittle about, even newcomers have a right to voice their opinions.
Because some aspects of running a student newspaper require continuity and a large time commitment, Imprint has four full-time, paid employees: the editor, the business manager, the production manager, and the advertising manager. These are elected by student staff, and they do not have voting rights. Maxiy students have some criticism of Imprint, and this is normal for a student newspaper at any university. However, the best way to ensure that the paper improves is to give suggestions, either to the editor, individual staff members, or at staff meetings. One thing critics should keep in mind is that a handful of people can only do so much. The paper needs improvement in its visual appeal, but there is a definite lack of talented artists banging at Imprint’s doors (and yet, think of all the wonderful exposure an artist just starting out could get]* What is really needed in order to improve the paper is more input from the majority of students, One last point - Imprint staff and editors are not omniscient; if anything newsworthy is happening on campus, it helps to give the paper a call.

.OFS’calls for greater equality on Ontario Premier’s Council by Sam Hiyate Imprint staff
The Ontario Federation of Students is calling for greater representation by students and women on the provincial Premier’s Council. The move comes in respopse to an announcement last month that all members of a new evaluation panel would, be men. The first evaluation panel, announced April 3 by the ministry of industry, trade and technology, is made up of 13 men and no women. According to an OFS news release, this omission does not reflect the governmefit’s stated policy on affirmative action. Also, the OFS feels the lack of
student representation on the Premier’s Council shows little commitment to the government’s principle of student participation in the decision-making role in the university system. Premier David Peterson has yet to respond to the OFS open letter calling for improvements in this situation, OFS communications’ director
Tim Stutt ssJd the open letter is aimed at letting the government know how the organization, which represents some 200,000 Ontario students, stands on this issue. “We wanted to make the premier’s office aware. Our basic hope is that (such inadequate representation) will not be repeated.”
Thieves struck again on the Waterloo campus May 4, stealing a motorcycle from the PAC parking lot. The motorcycle, a red and white Yamaha, was stolen between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. UW’s security department said the theft was likely committed by more than one person using a truck or van; the bike and its steering system were locked, making it unlikely it was pushed or driven off campus. Anyone who may have Seen the theft or has information about the theft should contact campus security. The department is reminding cyclists to lock their bikes (both the motor and the pedal varieties) at all times to deter would-be thieves.

.6 Waterloo students receiveNSERC awards Six University of Waterloo students have been awarded 1967 Science and Engineering scholarships to undertake graduate studies. The awards are announced by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), Ottawa; a total of 55 were made across Canada. The 1967 scholarships were inaugurated to mark Canada’s centennial, They provide $17,500 per year, plus travel allowance, toward graduate studies and research leading to a doctorate in Canada or abroad, usually a period of four years. Twin brothers Roger and Rodney Chin, both physics students, were among the recipients. Roger will do his graduate work on optics at the University of British Columbia; Rodney will study non-linear optics at the University of California, Berkeley. Besides their academic’ achievements, both brothers have many outside interests; Roger enjoys downhill skiing and recently received his licence as a glider pilot. Rodney plays the trumpet and French.~ horn, and likes cross country skiing and swimming. Two female students received the award: Kim J. A. Beirnes, Holland Centre, Ont., is interested in polymer chemistry; she will be doing her PhD at McMaster University, on chemical process control. Caralyn P. Bennett, Sudbury, geological engineering, has not decided which university she will attend. Other award winners are: Richard T. Goodwin, Scarborough, electrical engineering, who will be doing his PhD on artificial intelligence at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), and W. David Vinke, Glencoe, systems control engineering student, who will go to University of California, Berkeley, for doctoral studies. Awards go to students who have obtained first class academic records throughout their undergraduate years and who have also shown leadership potential, the ability to communicate, and who possess considerable general knowledge and interests. UW received 13 per cent of the total awards across Canada, tying with the University of TOronto..

Incidental fee ban a poor solution ._ -
The recent provincial government ban on auxiliary fees and resulting loss of services makes me wonder if the Federation of Students should be pleased or upset. In some respects, the students come out ahead. With auxiliary f&es banned, increases in tuition are limited to amounts allowed by the provincial government - usually reasonable amounts, The university can no longer increase tuition at will. No auxiliary fees means no more token computer accounts offered in lieu of the computer fee. Instead, students wanting computer accounts can purchase them at the cashier’s office. The student determines the amount of mpney put into the account and tiny money not used by the ‘end of term is lost. However, at least you know how your money is used. No more tuition disguised as computer fees. A problem with the computer fee and other auxiliary fees was the threat of excessive uncontrolled increases by the university. Whenever the university wanted fee increases in excess Of those allowed by the government it could increase auxiliary fees. The whole question of university accessibility then comes into play. However, auxiliary fees were the result of underfunding. Few UW students cannot afford or mind paying these fees. It was the threatof constant increases, the underhanded manner in which the fees were instigated and the uncertainty surrounding their use that made students wary. Despite the questionability of auxiliary fees, banning them was a poor decision and fighting for such a ban self-defeating. Rather than cut out excess fat in the administration the university will make students’bear the burden of the cutbacks. I’m sure we will not see the administration suffer from the reduced budget. The Federation of Students put a lot of effort into fighting for a ban of auxiliary fees with the result being more cutbacks for students, Instead, the Feds should have demanded regulation of these fees. After all, the fees arose from a need for money. The amounts in question were not excessive. Regulation would have been the perfect solution. As for accessibility, I doubt the fees are so high as tqlimit.accessibility. Also, OSAP loans are based on actual fees. If auxiliary fees were recognized as allowable, financial assistance would likely be increased and there would be no problem with accessibility., The Feds need to be careful in the upcoming fight over co-op fees lest they make the same mistake. Co-op services are necessary. If these fees are banned the students would lose again. Banning is never the solution - regulation and accountability are. Janice

Much of the current hue and cry over the @odsible reinstatement of capital punishment in Canada is the result of inade-‘ quate judicial and penal systems in this country. Some people argue in favour of capital punishment on the grounds that it acts as a deterrent to future violent crime, while others support it based on some concept of revenge. But it is likely the majority of those who support reinstatement do so because they perceive that form of, punishment as an absolute, a sentence which cannot be appealed, reversed or lightened once it is carried out. , There is a general feeling that many criminals avoid punishment for their crimes due to loopholes or technical flaws in the criminalcode. Even when jail sentences are handed out, the sentences are often seen as to0 light, -especially when the prospect of mandatory early release or parole is all too likely. T.he judicial system seems more concerned with the rights of criminals than with the rights of victims (sit in on a rape case and you’ll see the victim grilled more thoroughly than the accus’ed). Perhaps the biggest factors in this line of reasoning in favor of
capital punishment are thedhorror stories about violentoffenders being released after serving only a fraction of their sentences. These cases are even more’ horrifying when the criminal promptly commits anot her violent crime. When this happens, people can reasonably argue that if the criminal had been put to death after the first crime, the second crime could not have been carried out. [This brings up the question, of whose life is more important, a convicted murder’s or an innocent victim of the murder’s *second crime.) Also of concern are the cost and problems resulting from the use of penitentiaries. Many jails, especially maximum security ones, are over-crowded and very costly to maintain. Many people question the need for spending money on keeping a violent offender behind bars when the capital punishment option is available. Included in such concerns are the apparent ‘*luxuries“ (such as colour televisions, VCRs and exercise rooms) found at most prisons. Some prisons ‘even have prisoner unions which negotiate with correctional bffic’ials for better services and conditions. While prisons need not be inhumane, there should be some re-
cognition of the. fact that the * inmates have, by . committing crimes, forfeited the right to demand much of anything from societ&. Rison guards also argue that a concentration of violent offenders : serving _lbng terms behind bars is a potential time bomb. Such prisoners sometimes get desrjerate and attempt to breakout or riot, situations which threaten the lives of prison workers. Those opposed to! capital punishment ofteh argue the point on moral grounds, saying such punishment and murder are equally wrong. While such arguments make moral sense, public opinion polls still indicate strong support for reinstatement. Because of the many deficiencies in existing legislation, capital punishment will continue to hold support because of its permanency. Those in opposition to reinstatement will continue to fight an uphill battle aslong as these inadequacies exist in the system. Working for quick and significant improvements in how things are done in the court rooms and penitentiaries in this country is probably the best strategy for assuring capital punishkent is not called for.

l/VP/RG: how to get involved Are you worried about the indiscriminate dumping of toxic waste, the silent destruction of our lakes and forests by acid rain, or the disproportionate distribution of the world’s resources? Have you often thought about doing something about it but couldn’t find a way to get involved? For more than 14 years the Waterloo,Pub!ic Interest Research Group (WPIRG) has provided tin outlet for like-minded UW students enabling them to work on a variety of, environmental and social justice issues. Through a unique blend of research, education, and action, students have increased their own skills, become more aware of the inter-relationship between different issues, and taken constructive action to address social injustices. WPIRG is located in Room 123 of the General Service Complex. The salaries of one full-time and two parttime staff, along with programming expenses, are derived from a $3 per student per term fee, refundable during the first three weeks of the term. Financial and organizational direction are provided by a sevenmember, student board of directorsappointed for the summer term. The key ingredients of WPIRG are the resource centre, reseatch, atid education/action. b
WPIRG maintains files, periodical& and books on issues ranging from acid rain to third world development. Books and catalogued periodicals can be borrowed for two week periods. Files can be used in the office and photocopied ($0.05 per copy]. WPIRG’s research focusses on providing comprehensible information to the public on issues of concern. Acid Rain: the Silent Crisis, Chemical Nightmare: the Unnecessary Legacy of Toxic Waste, The Social Impacts of Computerization, and the K-W Tenants Guide are just a few of the publications compiled by WPIRG ‘in conjunction with student volunteers. Current research projects include a publication on Waste Management Master Plans and an update of the Tenant’s Guide. We need volunteers to continue research on waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. Interested persons should contact Cameron Wright at WPIRG. WPIRG will also coordinate a work-group throughout the summer which will organize educational events on social justice and environmental issues chosen by work-group participants. Interested persons should contact Bev Nuttall at WPIRG as soon as possible. If you have little free time but still want to be involved contact our office and we will try to arrange something with veu, possibly in the resource centre or on receptyon. ”
DEBUNKJNG:fringe I medicine by Robert Day Inipriat staff A short while ago, there came into my hands a copy of an article from the Ott 12, 1985 K-W Record. The article concerns one Lise Colley, a nutritional consultant who supplements her income by diagnosing allergies using what she admits is an “unconventional” technique. Since any paraphrasing on my part could not possibly do justice. to fhe description of the test, I hereby quote directly’ from the article in question. “During the relatively simple exercise, the person holds a bottle. containing the substance to be tested. I L in one hand whife extending the other arm straight out from their shouJcJer. CoJJey then tests the strength in the extended arm by pushing down on the extended wrist with her right hand.. . if the person is allergic to the substance.. . , the arm will Jose strength +. . in cornprison to the resistance offered when not bolting any substance.” If you, dear reader, are having trouble parsing the previous paragraph, go back and try again until you are happy - this is very importbnt for what follows. The first objection I have is that, des- “e a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Donsbach University in California, Colley is not at all ashamed to admit that “she has no explanation r .why the allergy testing works.” This apparently does not deter her from charging $20 for a one-hour test and dispensing the appropriate medical advice. Colley’s faith in/her abilities seem to stem from personal experience, such as the incident she rea counts in which, “One man held tin egg and I thought he was going to faint. Yet he eats eggs every day.” And apparently survives quite nicely, until he is actually forced to hold one. The mind reels. The weirdness does not stop here, however. Colley seems to believe that a complete lack of understanding of the mechanics of the test should not stop her from building upon a foundation of
sand, as evidenced by a modification of theltest for infants and small children in which “Theehild holds the bottle . , . and the mother or someone else extends her arm for the strength test while holding the child.” Again, Colley is unapologetic for her lack of explanation, stating simply that “Somehow the effect of the substance on the child is transferred through the mother . . . ++.But wait, there’s more. The resistance by the individual could ++. , . perhaps be even stronger if it is a sub4tance . . . which his body is lacking.” In a personal conversation with Colley, I tried to get an explanation of how one-could be affected by a substance inside a gealed glass container. Her res onse was that she believed t K e glass might be “porous”, which would certainly come as a shock to any chemists who store various toxic chemicals in glass bottles, confident that they won’t leak out overnight. Colley’s nutritional advice based on her diagnosis also leaves one wondering, since her most popular advice is to simply eliminate any foods that are suspect. Iier own faith in this procedure is most appropriately demonstrated by her statement+ “If ‘at the end of three weeks you don’t feel any better you haven’t lost anything”, which fails to instill any confidence in this Monte Carlo method of dllergy detection. Colley’s abysmal grasp of the facts also extends to her statements regarding established allergy testing by licensed practitioners when she states that “many medical doctors . . . don’t yet believe in food allergies.” When I pointed this statement out to Dr. Derek Wyse, a local medical allergist, his immediate response
was to pull off of his
shelf the two-volume Allergy: Principles and Practice, and point out the chapter on food allergies. In response to Colley’s claim that the *scratch test is only 20 per cent accurate, Wyse simply asked what her references were. Given all of the above, it is
surprising to read that, in the year prior to the article, “at least five doctors in Kitchener-Waterloo haire started referring patients to Colley although she prefers not to disclose their names because their colleagues might look askance.” It may in fact be impossible to identify the doctors Colley refers to, but a few quick phone calls verified that they do not include the four local allergists or pediatrician allergists, who are the a only people .I would consider qualified to make those referrals. Even more disturbing is the question of ethics involving any doctor who will make a medical referral that he does not wish to be publicly associated with. It is also worth making a remark or two about Colley’s academic credentials. The original article clearly #states thata Donsbach University, from which Colley received her degree+ is “an institution which specializes in nutrition but is not recognized in Canada.” This by itself is no cause for alarm, except that the article fails to mention that Donsbach is not accredited, or even approved, in its home state of California. Its status is **authorized”, the lowest academic status available to a California post-secondary institution according to the California Department of Education. There is, of course, one more culprit that should be given her due in this travesty. This is Ms. Sheila Hannon, the author of the article on Colley and someone whose objectivity is, to put it mildly, sus ect. Faced with one medical ii owler after another, Hannon did not seem to feel that it was in the public interest to contact a licensed allergist like Wyse who could have presented a balanced viewpoint,
least supplied the proper questions. Instead, both Hannon and the Record clearly threw
responsible, balanced journalism to the wind in exchange for an article that can only be politely referred to as sensationalism’.
A Different L i Light From a glance to, a smile by Chris Gerrard Imprint Staff
A man glanced my way, and I his. He looked away, and so did I. Finally, after an hour of playing “fleeting eyes”, I went home with him. That man is now my loner. That was the summer of 1985. Four months later, on work term in Toronto, I was watching a beautiful man swim like I had only seen before on television at games like the Olympics. I started to talk with him, and in one night we became very good friends - a remarkable experience. He is gay, and is one of my ‘two best f.riends. The other is a straight woman. (Incidentally, he was an Olympic swimmer.) TWO months later, I started a National Lifeguard Service course at U of Toronto, still on an extended work term. My instructor, one night after having gone for a drink, asked me if I was gay. “Why do you want to know?” was my nervous response. He told me that he was bi, and that he wanted to be open and honest, and that he thought that I was gay, and wanted to know. I was still clinging to my vestiges of3traightdom”, and, claimed that I was bi-sexual. Thenext night he took me to a gay bar, the first one.1 had ever been to in my life. I did not look at anyone for more than half a second, fearing for my very being. I thought all gay men were out to seduce whatever happened by, and I was both thrilled and afraid to be in that bar that night. Later that work term, I told the woman who is now my other best-friend, that I was gay. We were sitting at a table in the upper deck of Remey’s [a bar in Yorkville, Toronto) on a lovely spring evening, and we started talking abaut gay people. I asked her, “What would you sayif I told you I was gay?“At first she thought it was a joke, then she realized it was not. “Oh . . . really?!. . . No way!. . . Haa haa haa.. . OK . . . That’s pretty wild!” She has been the most supportive person and dearest friend I have had ever since that evening. Over the course of that work-term, the Winter of 1986, I came to know qtite a few gay men, and became much more comfortable with my own sexu,ality. I started to be seen with more “gay people”. I returned to UW that summer, and lived with my lover for what turned out to be the worst four months of our relationship. My lover had met quite a few gay people in Waterloo, and I was introduced to them as well, I walked into one of my first computer science classes that term, and met eyes with a very attractive man. Three classes later, I had the opportunity to sit beside him (later I found out that that had been contrived by him), and we started talking. Eventually he got the message across that he was gay, and suddenly all the pretending and g’ames disappeared, and we were talking freely about many things. This man also became a very good friend of mine. That summer, after havigg a very bitter argument with my lqver, I wqs upwt to thb point of-going home to my father’s [my pareAts are separated), and telling him everything that had been happening. He was wonderful about it. He accepted my sexuality, and eventually it has become just another’fact of life for him. He accepts me and my lover into his house, and does not look on us disapprovingly. I have always thought him a remarkable man for this, consi5dering his generation and upbringing. In June of 1986, my mother, when I was visiting her, asked me point blank if I was gay. I did not want to lie to her, and so I answered her affirmatively. After lecturing my on the religious ramifications of my “choice” (she had been listening to too many southern Ba tist-type ministers), she seem to be okay about it. Last Septem 73er, she came .to visit me, and conversation eventually turned to that subject. It ended bitterly in an argument, and I have not spoken with her since. I told my brother last Christmas, and he told me he had known for the last three years. “How could you? I didn’t even know!“++Yes you did,” was his response. He doesn’t care. It was as if I had fold him I liked argyle socks and he had responded, “Oh, that’s nice.” I started writing this column September of last year, and within two months, almost everyone in the gay community on campus knew who “Chris Gerrard” really was. , Last work term, I met and had<dinner with an old girl friend of mine. She asked me, in the course of the evening, how my love life had been, and if I had been seeing anyone. I told her I had - a man. The food that was on her fork fell off. She was not upset - just a little incredulous. We talked about it for a while, and she was fine about
it, She told
before. We parted on very good terms. I was “out”. I am “out”. Those have been the major events in my “coming out” experience. Not too exciting, I guess, for you perhaps+ but it was probably the most exciting, and traumatic period of my life. I do not hide my sexuality anymore, and I am happy with where I am. I still go to the bars [the gay ones - not too often the straight ones anv more], but 1 don’t look for a nervous half second. NOW I look for longer, if I want, and I smile, and the men smile back. -
Systems Design‘prof retires after 20 I yea.rs
Dr, T. Morris Fraser, University of Waterloo systems design engineering professor and director of the Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (COHS), wiii retire effective Aug. 1, after 20 years of service. He’ is taking early retirement. He will be living in Niagaraon-the-Lake where he and Mrs. Fraser have recently moved. They have purchased a 160-year old home originally built for General Isaac Brock during the War of 1812; it is located adjacent to Fort George, Dr. Fraser will continue to be on the UW campus from time to] time; he will remain an adjunct professor and consultant director to COHS; as well, he will operate a consultancy from his home. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, he is a medical doctor as well as a professional engineer P.Eng.), and came to Waterloo a 1ter considerable experience in aerospace medical research including several years with NASA in the United States, He has long been interested in ergonomics and human factors engineering , . . that is, engineering everything from computer terminals to airplane cockpits so they will be as easy, safe and comfortable as possible for human beings to use.
At Waterloo he contributed much to, the development of the undergraduate (and graduate) programs in the systems design engineering department - a department that came into existence in 1968, shortly after his arrival on campus. From 1972 to 1976 Dr. Fraser served as chairman of the department, during which time he help launched the careers of a number of people who have since become senior members of it. “It has been a remarkable experience . . . having been associated from the outset with a department that has proved such a success/ he remarks. Dr. Fraser refers to the fact that systems design engineering has attracted extremely high calibre students, and that many of these have been extremely successful, following graduation. = “Some of our concepts have changed a good deal since they were originally considered,” he admits, “but I have no doubt in the world that they were changes for the better. Certainly the program continues at the forefront of technology in many areas, and our very highly qualified graduates are snapped up by employers.” He is also pleased at the success of COHS, of which he is the founder. The Centre has offered
programs, seminars, conferences, and provided consulting services to industry in Ontario and

It is a windfall acquisition that promises to be of significant historical and academic valu’e to the entire community. Susan Bellingham, Special Collections Librarian says the collection needs some basic conservation and preservation work. That should take about a year. “I think we’re quite fortunate to reqeive this massive collection of photo negatives from The Re‘cord. It amounts to a kind of photo history of the KitchenerWaterloo community for the last 45 years and should be of immense value to many local historians, sociologists and members of the community,” Bellingham said. The negatives include virtually every kind of picture taken by The Reco@% photographers over the years. Most of the photos are of the news variety+ including accidents, new construction, community, events and human interest stories. Others include portraits of business and community leaders, and politicians, often taken in the newspaper’s portrait studio. Another group includes advertisin.g photos. Bellingham said some-of the earlier negatives will first have
to be rephotographed by the university’s photographers because they were originally produced on nitrate film, which is not stable. Brian Clark, photo.coordinator for The Recqrd, said the deal to donate the negatives to UW will help out all parties the newspaper, the university and partic::larly the public. “We decided we jusf did,n’t have the resources, within our photo department, to properly maintain this collection of negatives, and that it would be a waste not to find a suitable home for them,” Clark said, He said hi9 department frequently received requests for nega’tives but, unless they were very recent, it was.impossible to track the photos down easily. “It wasn’t set up as an archive, They were all in boxes according

But then Frank Gerencser and Michael Trueman are not your . ordinary young business tycoons, The University of Waterloo engineering grads (class of ‘84) have zoomed to success in running their business - Architech Microsystems 7 using a lot of old-fashioned business smarts and hustle. A couple of years ago, after graduating and taking three months off to see Europe, the two Waterloo grads started their computer business in a townhouse in Mississauga, sharing it with two other people and a dog. ’ Now, two years later, they can barely cont,ain their success.

In 1982, still in the UW systems design engineering program, they happened to meet on a stairway in an engineering building. They began talking about ways of obtaining more business course credits, which each figured.he needed to further a career in business. “I told Mike to look at taking business at Laurier, which I had discovered I could do earlier,” says Gerencser. F&time students can do that by cross-registering at Wilfrid Laurier ,University, which has a big business school. “In my own case, I always knew I wanted to own my own business. I took over my family’s business when I was only 14,” he says, explaining that necessity forced the situation. But he loved the experience and, even though he went on to study engineering, Gerencser says he always

You can’t hive two salesmen, because then nobody looks after the books, And if you had only financial managers, nobody would be out bringing in business.” When they started their business in the fall of 1984 they wanted to sell computers to students. But they soon discarded that plan and decided the place to be was in designing and selling their own computer systems for business and personal appli‘cations, across a wide market. The fact they were UW graduates didn’t hurt, says Trueman. “This university has a great reputation in computers and engineering, and that opened some doors for us.” But he stresses that the reason

Not surprisingly, they, have that figured out as well. “Venture capitalism,” Gerencser says.

York’s life was changed by the march. “I started off feeling negative about most American people,” she remembered with tears in her eyes, “Now I’m in love with Americans. People I could never relate to before- the march would come to the camp at night with food to share..They wanted to hear our story. They wanted to believe in a world without nuclear bombs,” ’ York is currently showing her slides of the march to interested m groups of people. They are a por, trait at America; an image of the marchers and the people whose lives were touched,by the march. 1 “It was an incredible journey on a lot of levels; personal, social, and political,” York said as her lecture began at SSU. It was a slide show for Campus Peace Action Coalition, a group she helped form during her student years. The journey began in Los Angeles with 1,200 exuberant’people. Two weeks later Pro Peace; the original organizers, declared bankruptcy.

the march. An eight-year-old child in the audience at SSU wanted to know if there were any kids on the march. York happily complied with slides of healthy, smiling children. “There were about 50 kids, not counting teenagers,*’ she said. “They were our best public relations people, They didn’t march except on special occasions as they had school during the day.” Fifty of the marchers were over .f@ years old. “They were some of the strongest troopers of us all,” she told the audience. “A Japanese Buddist monk brought a spiritual flavor to the march. He drummed and chanted every mile that he walked,” said York. “Later some of his friends joined us.”
“One of the most amazing ‘things about the’ march is that we were able to live peacefully together. We were living out what we were working for,” she said, “It was the most nitty gritty of the peace work we did.” “There were conflicts all the time, due to the diversity of people,” she admits. “But we learned to resolve them with mediators, conflict resolution boards, and 18 to 24 miles a day other techniques.” “We made a lot’ of mistakes, but we did it and that was quite “There was so much creativempowering,” she said of the ity.

The arrangement of vehicles was different. Just finding your friends would be a challenge.” At night Peace City was organized into neighborhoods. York’s slides depict many scenes of what she, calls “the hardware of the march,” “The womb of the peace march is this large tent, also known as city hall,” she said. The kitchen complex consisted of five trailers; food prep, kitchen, refrigerator, dry food storage, and dishwashing. “The central most piece of equipment, the porta potties bad names like Heather, Daisy and Rose,” she laughed. “They were also the central communication points with posters inside and out for all to read.”

those two days. In addition a crew went ahead of the march for advance work; obtaining permits and camping sites, and arranging rallies and speaking engagements. - Manyritu& developed as the march continued. “At each border crossing we were greeted by peace groups from the new state,” York recalled, “We lined up on the state line, counted down the- states we had already walked through, ‘California, Nevada, Utah. Take them Bbombsi’down,‘and then jumped over the line en masse.”
people with welcome signs In every city there was a typical rally. In addition to exchanging keys to the cities, public officials gave speeches. In every city a peace tree was planted. “We planted the longest forest in the country,” York laughed. In Colorado, Pete Seeger visited the mardh and sang, “We were surrounded by three feet of she iecalled. The first mud,” peace march wedding took place in Denver. The cake was the size of a large table. It was the first of eight weddings. Later, there was also a birth on the march: But it was the ordinary American people that amazed York the most. “School kids w6uld come out to cheer us on and in every town there were’ people with welcome signs.” “One group who knew what the issue was all aboutwere the farmers,” York rememberhd. “The real issue is where are out priofities.” In Nebraska, Peace City was mired down in the mud, The farmers came. and pulled them out with tractors.(York still wears a gold earring, handmade by a farmer md given to her and 300 other marchers.

Later in Pennsylvania, they met other working class people affected by U.S. policies. Steel workers locked out of their plants rallied with the peace marchers. “When we started walking through the midwest, the corn was three inches tall,” York said. “It grew u&l it was harvested and the stalks were plowed under while the march went by.” One of her slides shows a typical scene in town. “The cafes were flooded with ,marchers getting junk food. A marchers dream come true was a Dairy Queen at a lunch stop.” “Sometimes you needed distractions from the pain,” she recalled of the 25 mile days through Nebraska, and shows a slide of live people walking closely together all hooked-up to one Walkman. “In the towns we walked city mode; all scrunched together,” York said. “Country mode was more spread out.

IMPACT Call Ext. 4042
The First was the last at the Level by Don Ku40 Imprint staff First Man Over came to K-W on the first of May with their successful mini-LP in hand, and served up a bountiful amount of power pop to a sparse audience at Level 21. The first five songs of the evening prominently showcased ‘the talents of the very personable Patrick J. Duffy behind the kit and the Mighty Lemondropg’ “T” clad bassist, Alan Murrel. This pair of persistent percus-; sion and fluid bass stood out at the out set of the show due to the fickle fingers behind the soundboard. When all was well in P.A, land, the jangly guitar work of J.C. Chambers entered the scene and added to the band’s rhythmic offerings. The sharpness that Chambers’ guitar gave to First Man Over’s music was not due to a single string stance, as guitar show-
manship is not part of this band’s rock ‘n’ roll repertoire, Instead, the six string jabbing rang pleasantly over the slick bass runs, and indifferently interacted with Chambers’ innocent vocals. Chambers’ takes on the bulk of the vocal duties for this talented outfit who have transformed their previous dense musical for, mat of Kinetic Ideals to conducting themselves in a melodic manner as First Man Over. The song, Somewhere+ from their musig mini-LP highlighted the first s’et which also contained an instrumental of a REM flavour sans Micheal Stipe. Later, Alan Murrel would comment, “I. hate REM. I don’t -have a single record of theirs in my collection.” After a. few more bodies sauntered into the Level at the characteristic, fashionably late hour, the now larger gathering warmed up to the band, and the trio energetically flew through
their second set covering Neil Yaung’s $3ti~. . Girl and Head Over Heels by the Weather Prophets. The latter cover was a welcome divergence of musical stylings with feedback effects and delicate tappings of Duffy’s rototoms. Ending their evening in K-W on a furious power pop note reminiscent of the Undertones, the ironic conclusion was a song enti!led Green Flag. The irony of title of the tune became apparent after the show, as it appeara,that the Level ownership has decided to wave the white flag by giving up on attempting to attract KW’s underground crowd. Just when things appeared to be a little more organized upstairs at the Mayfair with bookings of live music every Saturday night, the door his been shut, Where and when the next venue for alternative action will open in this area remains to be seen. One will just have to hope, and keep yer eyes and ears open.
The Men with four-way Hips ,:pay a quick visit to Waterloo by Msr Imprint
Would Hipsway get any kind of reaction from a Friday night Fed Hall crowd on summer term? Their debut album sounded quite good. Maybe too good technically well-produced, performed, and arranged - and the band actually sounded interested in recording the album. I was curious to see and hear the live show and compare, If Hipsway could deliver, on stage what thev Dromised on the aIbum. the
show would be a good one. At about 11 o’clock, they were finally ushered onto stage. The band, led by vocalist, Grahame “Skin” Skinner, entered into a condensed do-minute set beginning with their single, Broken Years. Fed Hall was the Scottish band’s first show in Canada and they were enthusiastic to make a good start on their z&date tour of North America. The six-piece ensemble consisted of Skin, Pim Jones on guitar, Harry ,Travers on drums, and Gary Houston on bass as well as two musicians on
synth and percussion. The support for the band was already waning after a couple of songs, s.o they tried to wake the audience up by playing their big air-play single, The Honeythief. They played it well, but didn’t g& the results they wasted because the crowd seemed only moderately impressed. I Skin tried to get closer to the crowd one last time, with Long .qWhite Cur, but *I. don’t think either the crowd or the band . wanted to indulge each other anymore.

bhiinated. POP _ by Don Kudo Imprint staff A confrontation occurred at the City Hotel on Saturday night. No, it wasn’t the “regulars” versus the “kids”, but ‘a hard-working band pitted against an audience who for the most part had never heard of their. name o,r music before. The conquering factor, that permitted Vancouver’s Go Four 3 to prevail in this match of wits, was their animated execution of sensible pop music, What initially appeared to be an exercise in futility, with Steve Quinn flailing away at his guitar, his every move naturally exaggerated, and the buo ant Roxanne Heichert forever i Opping as she fronted the band with her singing and attitude. The positive posture of Go “Four 3 is not only articulated in their songs, but also in the fashion the band conducts itself.
Covering the topic of racial equality in African Mine, com,menting on our cutthroat and greedy world with CoIour Of Money, and the “Take Back The Night” theme of Seventh Victim were examples of the messages the band conveyed. Their onstage mannerism is characterized by enthusiastic fun, which was particularly evident when playing “tacky cove&’ such BS Nazareth’s This Figh ‘Ttinight, Zep!s Immigrant Son , and Swe‘eny Todd’s R -NJ= Currently in the midst of a cr’oss-Canada tour to promote themselves and their most lrecent release Six F’riende, the band has made a new video for the song Someone and plan on returning to this area come September. Having played in K-W at such locations as the Back Door, Level 21, and at the City, perhaps this fall Go Four 3 will make their way up to campus, and make more friends at Fed Hall.

Flash Light Tom Verlaine PolyCram
by Tim Imprint
Check the ‘Television’ section of any used record store on earth and I’m sure you’ll turn up at least thre,e or four copies of Adventure, Dreamtime, or Words From The Front, There lies the anomaly with Tom Verlaine. His records are critically lauded and revered by fellow musicians [listen to the song Always from Verlaine’s Dreamtime LP back to back with Echo & the Bunnymen’s Never Stop or Marquee Moon to ffnd out where UZ’s The Edge picked up his technique, or any Verlaine LP at all to find out where Lloyd Cole copped his vocal style] yet his albums are almost- completely ignored by record buyers. It’s true that public acclaim has never been an indication of artistic value but the like/dislike of Verlaine’s LPs seems more clearly polarized than any other case. It could be because Verlaine tends to use unconventional structures in his songs rather than the usual verse/chrous/bridge format. It might e6en be that his lyrics, not strictly narrative, do not always convey the song’s complete meaning on first listen. Whatever it might-be, the problem isn’t in his guitar work which seems to swim around, watching everything else going on as if cowpletely detached. Admittedly, tkiere were some greut songs on Gavur (from ISD*) and all his solo LPs but Flash Light is likely Verlaine’s most focused album since his Television days. It’s taken him seven ’ years of writing and recording to be able to come up with such a concise statement as found in Bomb. Here Verlaitie re-creates the confusion and denial that’s a part of everyone’s life in the nuclear age using just sixty-seven words. The songs are purposeful and dense with contradiction while never smelling of ‘poetry’ - all this from the Franz Kafka of rock ‘n’ roll guitar.

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few years you’re probably familiar with the name Don Dixon, if only for his production of LP’s by R.E.M., Guadalcanal Diary, The Smithereens, and Wednesday -Week (who’ll be opening for China Crisis on May 19 at Fed Hall). What you may not be aware of however is for the last 10 years Don Dixon has been a bassist and songwriter for a bar band called Arrogqnce, famous throughout the- Carolinas for their opening spots on 22 Top and Black Sabbath bills. Most Of The Girls Like To Dance But Only Some Of The Boys Like To may be called Dixon’s solo debut but it’s far from being a one-man effort: He_lpiFg out are some. of the members‘ from Arrogance such as guitarisi Robert Kirkland (also with a debut album called Kick The Futur,e tin the Mega Records label out of Denmark, the same label which this Don Dixon LP was originally issued on), and R.E.M. co-producer/Let’s Active cornerstone Mitch Easter. A strong mid-sixties soui influence is evident in the album’s sparse use of guitar, behind the beat keyboard fills, and call/response vocal arrangements bring to mitid.jobn Hiatt’s more recent work or even Brinsley .Schwarz

but the music that finally comes out of’ Dixon’s mix is definitely . . pop siae up. . _ Ana . . ‘wnat s a ssmix! From a technical view, the al bum is a. marvel which will likely have musicians and engineers alike looking to each successive song with anticipation, wondering what kind of odd guitar or drum sound he’s going to come up with next. The guitar on Just Rites warbles ‘like it was recorded in Mitch Easter’s bathtub. You just know a sound like that has been collecting dust in the back of Dixon’s mind for years: “Yeah Don, that do& Sound pretty wild but you’re not using it on our album!” ^ Dixon shows himself to be a
‘competent songwriter, unfortunately the same cannot be said for his vocal ability. For many of the songs his rouih growl iskntirely adequate but at times, even he would admit, he’s out of his league. Why anyone, especially someone with Dixon’s limited range, would want ’ to cover a soul monolith like When A Man Loves A Woman is beyond me. It’s painful to listen to although not nearly as embarrassing as Cyndi Lauper’s drippily pathetic attempt at What’s Goin’ On [sadly, she left out the “right on brother” bits), Nice, but groovy production alone isn’t enough to carry the album.
Dif Juz. Doesn’t tell you whole lot, does it? Leastwa s, not the ways the names of t: ands like The Fuzztones or the Dead. Kennedys give .you a’pretty good id&a of &h&t the vinyi will-sound like. What is the tip-off for the uninitiated, though, is the label, 4AD, and the involvement of
I&bin Guthrie and Simon Ray<monde of the eyer-lovable CocJeau Twins. Without trying to pigeonhole the band unnecessarilv, Out of the Trees, comprised of two EPs released in 1961, Huremics and the recently qemixed Vibrating Air (what a title), sounds like something you’d expect from, a 4AD release. As with many other 4AD bands; I played the Dif Juz once and got absorbed in a magazine article about. solar power or something and comp.letely forgot -that the record was playing but I played it another time and sat entranced for the full forty minutes. ’ And, as is often the case with other 4AD bands, some people will categorize this instrumental album as New Age - they’re even doing this to a-band as creative and challenging as Durutti Column - just because of its primarily unobtrusive and serene sound. What a horrible injustice; I can’t imagine slipping Out of the Trees into a CD player and sipping wine coolers while discussing RRSPs with a fellow yuppie investment broke;. True, Dif Juz doesn’t exactly ‘cook’, but they can also stew and simmer with Cocteauesque’grace and expression and drive with a heady, rhythmic propulsion, Out of the Trees is one of those rare atmospheric records that actually :l”nvolve the listener. If Harold Budd’s rece’nt collaboration with the Cocteaus was up you alley, investigate Dif luz.

After the show, 1 found an “Unofficial Waterloo Apology gathered in the Committee” dressing room talking to the band. I sensed the time had come for your friendly neighbourhood pressman to make his appearance. The four fellows were pretty casual behind scenes, not really caring whether they got interviewed or not,
I proceeded to squeeze through the trafficof bodies and seat myself next to bassist Gary Houston, the latest addition from Edinburgh. Pete: And you’ve been with the band for how long? Gary: I’ve been with the-band since January of this year. We’ve just done a seven-date tour of Scotland. The crowds were amazin’. And then we came over here. We did Rochester last night. That was really good as well; Pete: How does Canada compare to Britain? To the States? Gary: We were in New York for just about a week. Busy, busy, busy. I find Canada’s much more relaxed, though. They’re both great in their own ways. wdi you seem comfortable as a band. Even with the moderate response you got tonight, you looked to be enjoying yourselves. -Gary: We do it for ourselves as well. If we didn’t enjoy music, we wouldn’t play together every day,* Pete: Who writes the words and who writes the music? Gary: Harry, the drummer, gets credit for most of the%words.

Pim: A new album might be here before the end of the year or by January ‘88, There’s a good chance we’ll be staying on in the States to support somebody like David Bowie, well not necessarily Bowie, but somebody big like that.

by Sam HiyrteImprint strff If you were taken from your mother’s arms and brought up by a surrogate chimpanzee mother, and taken from our concrete jungle into a real green one, how would you get back home? You’d fly. And if the situation was reversed, a chimp brought up here would want to do the same. Project X deals with chimpanzees (whose genetic structure is 98 tier cent like ours) who are the subjects of U.S. Air Force experiments. They are used to fly jets &cl, as the opening introduction points out, to “test the limits of human endurance”. This film has a slick animal rights slant to it. Directed by Johnathan Kaplan (Heart Like EI Wheel), it stars Willie the chimp as Virgil, the speaking (or at least signing) chimp, and Matthew Eroderick as Timmv Garrett, an airforce pilot. ” ’ Virgil is’ brought up as a’ human baby at the University of Wisconsin’s of psy- . . I -- Departme-nt chology. He’wears a diaper and learns sign language. The project he belongs to has its funds cut, and before Virgil’ knows it, he’s the propelity of the air force. He meets and befriends Jimmy Garrett. Jimmy reads The Joy of Signing so he and Virgil can communicate. Both are u are of, the ASP Force’s experi w nts. The tension mounts. The biggest thing Project X has going for it are its chimps. Virgil meets other Chimps at the base and the audience gets t‘o know them better than most of the humans in the story. While the humans are stereotypes, the chimps are the personalities. But the movie proves its point: people are animals too.
