Provincial budget calls for additional $25 million, better repayment plan for OSAP

More monev ~rovided for student loans by Elliott Simcoe Imprint staff The well-received provincial budget tabledlastweekcmtains some good news for Ontario students - an additional $25 mil-

lion in OSAP funding and an interest payment relief plan. The Ontario Federation of Students, however, is only cautiously optimistic about the budget, presented May 20 by Treasurer Bob Nixon. Wes Muir, campus media liai-

son to the OFS said, "the budget takes some positive steps, but there are still a lot of answers not clearly accounted for." While students who receive OSAP (Ontario Student Assistance Program] loans fared well in the budget and universities

will get more money for renovations, the OFS feels the government did not go far enough in its efforts. The budget provides $100 million for renovation of buildings used by the province's colleges and universitis. With 22 insti-

tutions eligible to receive money. Weir said this sum will not adequately cover the needs of the schools. In addition to extra money for the OSAPpot, the budget call for an interest relief plan which relates the interest on outstanding loans with the income of the 1 graduate. Currently, the student is given a grace period of six months after graduation to repay the loan interest free. After the grace period, interest is charged at the bank rate ineffect when the loan comes due. The most confusing element in the budget involves foreign students. The budget provides foreign students with a property and sales tax credit and with $5 million to reduce tuition fees. But the criteria for the selection of eligible students has not yet been prepared. The University of Waterloo did not fare well as a result of the budget. In a previously announced portion of the budget, the ministry of eglleges and universities outlawed tuition-related ancillary fees. The, .$isdlar*scleo&-

sulted in a$~.7millionlossto thk university. UW administration is currently looking into which services will be cut in the wake of the government decision. In response to the impending cutbacks in services, Bob Truman, of the UW treasurer's office, said, "I can't see how we can sustain the current level of activities without revenue." Ted Carlton, president of the UW Federation of Students, said he is pleased with the government decision. Ancillary fees like the computer fee were unprincipled and against the regulations of the ministry. "Waterloo came out worse than any other school because

Different system causes delays in getting loans

Students caught in time squeeze. \

by Marie Sedivy Imprint staff Co-op students from Quebec ,are encountering difficulties in applying for their student loans this term. The application deadline for Quebec student loans is May 31, but most co-op students now on campus have not yet preregistered for the winter term. The loan application requires confirmation from the university that the student will in fact be attending the university. In order for the registrar's office to provide this confirmation, the student must be pre-registered. "Quebec has difficulty' with the co-op program," says Maureen lanes who administers outof-province loans in the Student Awards office. "In their co-op rograms, students still pay fees geeause they're on a yearly basis. Our fees are charged by he term."

According to Jones, a further problem witl, Quebec loans is the time-frame. The applications are sent out in April, and expected back by the end of May for returning students. "If the applications were sent out in February, it would ,be great," says jones. The problem is intensified because Quebec enforces deadlines strictly. The province also processes the applications too slowly. It' takes at least until late August or early September for any money to be received. The university has less control over Quebec loans than over OSAP. "We have no way of knowing if the student is entitled to anything," says Jones. Consequently, it becomes more difficult to defer payment of fees for such students. Jody Levine, a student from Quebec has yet to pay her tuition fees. Her work-term savings

'went toward her residence fees, and she is still awaiting acknowledgement that her loan application for spring has been received, let alone processed. As a result of Quebec's confusion, several students who were on work-term Iast winter had money sent to the university. The Student Awards office returned these loans because the students were not registered for the winter term. "If it's so easy to send it back. why don't they just sign it in the first place." questions Jody Levine. She feels t h e ~ n i v e r s i t y should have treated her as a regular student. Jones tried that approach last year, but ran into problems when students whose money had been kept from the winter term subsequently applied for a loan in the s ring term. She then had to send {ack the spring term money and Quebec started cut-

ting students off. "It was worse," says Jones. "I was going qgainst their program. Their term for loans runs from spring to winter." Although Jones does not yet know how many students have been affected by the problem, she returned about 45 loans last January. Levine wonders why it has taken so long for anything to be done. "Cm sure I'mn:; the first to have this problem, she says, "But it sure seems that way!" The Student Awards office is trying to make Quebec aware of the problem, but Jones is uncertain whether anything will be done to accommodate Waterloo students. "We're probably not enough of the applications processed for them to make an exception," she says. Jones does not know if any other universities have encountered similar problems.

Tea tiamon first place. They pushed the regulations the farthest." He agreed the decision puts the university in a tight spot. The solution to the problem of underfunding, said Carlton, "is to increase the priority of the universities in the government's mind."

Daughter of Bertrand Russell talk , plans UW wbmen 8cpeace F (staff) - Noted educator and feminist Katharine Tait, author of My Father, Betrand Russell, is scheduled to speak at UW June 4. She will discuss the issue of women snd peace at Beacon Hill S&001, an alternative learning ir&titution founded in the ’20s by her parents, Betrand and Dora Russell. Both Tait and her brother John attended the schoal, which was operated under Russell’s “educatiou for fArless freedom” ideal, In her recollections of the school, as well as of her past, Tait has been highly critical of her father’s ideas. Tait, who now makes her home in the U.S., discovered some revealing aspects of the Beacon Hill School during a trip back to England to sort her mother’s papers. The school, which was operated by Tait’s mother for 10 years after her parents’ marriage ended in 1932 (it closed its doors in 1942), did not live up to its theoretical goals, says Tait. In addition to her background in women’s rights movement - a stance influenced by her tiother’s opinions - Tait has worked in much of the Third World along side her missionary husband, served as a warden at a women’s residence in Boston and as a researcher on the Betrand Russell Project at Hamilton’s McMaster University,

Reduced prison

costs not a vdid pro-death dance A comment piece-appearing on this page last week dealt with the possible reinstatement of capital punishment in Canada. The article made the interesting point- that an improved judicial system would dispel the cry for the hangman. This very point, the inadequacies of judicial and penal systems in our country to provide proper sentencing, is exactly one $f the reaqons why. reinstatement of the death r ‘. . penalty is.wrong. 1 How can we allow a justice system ih‘at we now find presently inadequate the opportunity to use theultimate “tool” as punishment? If our system cannot ptioperly sentence a person to the required prison term and keep that person iri tR+ise fo$ the proper lbngth of time, can we entrust the same system of ruling on who&all4ve and who shall die? By handing ovr ‘court’s the ‘Ge” of&pita1 punishment, their rulixigs will$laci+&in^~din#!e’hii~berof mitiiorities ohdeathrow if the t+-nd of ‘the U.S. i9 foll&&&%i%ti t.he’ir’ dispr’opcMon8te*number of blacks bitti$“oh death ‘i%&‘.‘Wi! -;=‘a%pe&ps tipply this @Lto.our ,. ” native population, Anothei aoint in last week’s comment piece was the reasoning used by subporters of the death-penalty that executions will lessen the spatial and economic stress placed on our prison system. This reasoning is ludicrous as how can any civilized society consider economics when dealing with someq$s life.. Execution of even l’O0 people in one year would not cause a.,dent in the overall budget of Canada’s legal system, since coyrt expenses dealing with rightful and endless appeals would expound more financesthan a life prison term. There are other reasons why capital punishment is vncalled for in our country. The major one being, as a de&e’@ factor, the death penalty has never proven effecfive..

ister what occurs in a person’s life. In fact, if you check into recent research you will see that each cell in the body does indeed remember events that occur. What about a sprained ankle? It goes weak when it is placed in the original position when it was hurt? Better read some of the more recent findings of Dr. John Diamond, psychiatrist, Your Cody Doesn’t Lie, and a few others if you contact me. Basing our conclusions on two works - K ardly substantiates your claims. 5. I would also like to point out that if you use medical journals, these are to be used with discretion. Such publications lend themselves to political rather than scientific power. JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) and others are more political than scientific. To this I refer you to the recent works of Dr. Linus Pauling, Robert Mendelson, Dr. Lenden Smith, Dr. Alex Schauss. These are notable scientific researchers who are trying to awaken the scientific communities to their biases. 6. There is, to my knowledge, no scientific study done on the technique of Iridology. You have, Mr. Day, based your conclusions on incomplete research, The two studies that you referred to were far from a truly acceptable scientific investigation. They were merely correlations to prove Iridology is not worth looking into - not a very scientific attitude, and as I understand ’ it from colleagues of mine,, the, journals which published such studiel; did so to discredft Iridnology. Political motives. Your article has achieved two things: First, a good advertisement for Iridology, secondly, that you know nothing about the technique. You have read two books and two or three backward reviews and then formed your opinion. Let me remind you that Iridology is a world-wide concept. The Royal Family, The World Health Organization and many other notable sources are recognizing Iridology and other alternative methods as being viable, and very useful. It is tirue more scientific study needs to be done: true scientific study. Dr. Josef Deck in G ermany has done extensive research into irisbody connections. His correlations are quite convincing. [Better to claim ignorance here! Mr. Day.) I have reviewed with a graduating class in optometry regarding iridology. The outcome was very positive. I even gained some clients, which was not my goal but I consider it a compliment. Optometry once too was considered a spurious sefende but we know otherwise. Iridology does present us with some interesting challenges. Scientists cannot know everything. Dr. Linus Pauling, in his recent work How to live Ionger and feel better, has this to say about medicine: “The editor of JAMA and his advisors have a hard task to handle. Medicine is an extremely complicated subject. It is to a large extent based on the sciences - physics, physical chemisorganic chemistry, try, biochemistry, molecular biology, bacteriology, virology, genetics, pharmacology, and at hers - but it has not yet become a science, No one can know thoroughly more than a small part of medicine. Moreover, many physicians are limited in their scientific knowledge and have not had experience in the

field of scientific discovery. They do not know how to greet and how to assess new rideas. [pg. 2321.” Science offers only one way of knowing: there are many other ways. Iridology is very positive and many people have benefited. That which is considered suspect and superstitious is only so labelled by those who are on shaky ground and are afraid to lose power and controL Thank you, Mr. Day, for allowing me to respond. A little more attention to detail and formulating your questions to provide constructive criticism would be appreciated in future; not just for Iridology but for all subjects, thus your comments would become more acceptable and reputable rather than egotistic and trendy. John N. Nauss Previbuu student I&, Day

and Iridologiet

responda:”

Nauss’ first objection is that iridology is “NUT a medical diagnosis.” In fact, Bernard lensen, the most influential proponent of iridology, states in [l] that “. . . iridology does not diagnose disease in the sense that Western medicine does, nor does it label combinations of symptoms with disease names.” However, in [Z], there seems to be 0 complete reversaf of this attitude when Jensen states that “, . ..iridology is unique in its ability to make a subclinical evaIuation . . .‘, while in an even earlier work ((311, we have Jensen’s opinion that “. . . iridology can diagnose a patient for the doctor if he has a perfect colored photogra‘ph *.. of the patient’s eye. The patient need not be present (emphasis adcfe&. ” Not only does this cJearly impJy a diagnostic ability, it contra$cts Nauss’ claim that iridology 2s only to be used in conjunction with other methods.” If Nauss does not wish to use the term “diagnose”. I will not quibMe&emay choose any word he . - the effect is the same. Nauss then takes exception to my reference to iridology 4s “quackery” and maintains that “* . . many scien’tific discoveries were initially discovered through simple ways.” The converse, however, does not necessarily hold; the, fact that something was discovered through Q simple way does not make it a scientific discovery, a Iogical distinction that most purveyors of pseudo-science find difficult to grasp. In defence of iridology, Nauss refers to it QS “a world-wide phenomenon”. So, I might add, is belief. in UFOs and Bigfoot. The validity of a particular beJiefhas never been 4 function of the, number of believers, as evidenced by organizations like the Fiat Earth-Society and the Creation Research Society. Is Nauss implying that these groups should also be taken seriously? If not, how are we to distinguish? And concerning the 3,000 “registered” lridologists in Europe, one may ask, registered by whom? Accredited post-secondary institutions? lridology schools? Each other? I will

not

waste

much

space

refuting A@uss’ “basic theory to iridology,” except to point out that whether an ankle can remember an injury to that ankle gives no support whatsoever to the ciaiti that an iris cgn remember a dysfunction of the lungs (or thyroid or kidneys or whatever), I shall postpone discussion of point five temporarity in order to

deal with what 1 consider t/te major issue - the scientific studies of iridology. NJUSS claims that there bus been “no scientific study done” and that the two studies 1 referred to ([6],[?]) were “far from a truly acceptable scientific investigation.” I invite anyone interested to read the articles in question and judge for themselves whether the tests were fair, since the protocols are described in detail in both cases, with the outcomes being extremely unfavorable for iridology. This differs markedly from the “quite. convincing correlations” reduced by Deck and touted 1 y lensen in 141 in which ]ensen,fuiils to describe the protocols used, the standards of diagnosis or the controls used. A more critical’ opinion of Deck’s work is supplied by Dutch journalist Piet Hein Hoebens in 181, who reports that a book co-uuthored by Deck and Vida in 1954 on iris diagnosis “was subjected to merciless criticisms in the medical journal& because, (IS one author stated, their methods *‘bordered on munipulation” and that.“the two iridologists had had prior knowledge of their test subjects’ medical records and they had selectiveJy employed their own chart system in order to obtain matching diagnoses.” Is this what Nauss would have us believe is “true ‘scientific study”? In addition, Deck’s reported success was in the detection of kidney disease, the very same test used in [6] that gauss refers to as unacceptable, and a test that Jensen himself was involved in. Even more amazing is Nauss’ insistence 1on : mbre’ scientific s’tudy when Jensen fias stated @5]) that iridology “. . +is the kind o science that cannot be related t x rough scientific tests, for it does not provide clinical information.” A couple more brief points. If, 0s Nwss says, I have simply generated a good advertisement for iridology, one wonders why he bothered to respond. And if Nauss wishes to criticize my knowledge of the technique, I challenge him to locate a single error in my description. Lastly, w.e come to what I consider the most distasteful part of Nauss’ rebuttal. Throughout fiis letter, Nauss has openly accused various medical journals of”political motives”, of trying to“&credit Iridology” and of runnin substandard scientific tests, a I I without producing one shred of evidence. 1 again invite anyone, including Nauss, to inspect carefully the two journal articles referenced, and ‘to find any evidence of deliberate dishonesty, bias or lack of proper contrdls. What Nauss and Jensen, among others, seem to be suffering from is what is popularly re; ferred to as the “martyr

comDlex”. r’hev obviouslv cannot -accept thi possibiliti that conventional medicine has refused to endorse iridology, not because of political pressure or hunger for power, but because it is convinced that iridoiogy is precisely what I accused it of being - bad medicine and bad science.

%h,ow time, folks

W’s

by RobertDay Imprint staff It has just come to my attention, courtesy-of the Sunday Sun, that Friday, May 29 is a bit of a red-letter day for anyone who tries to keep up with ongoing events in the fantasy land of the paranormal. World-renowned magician/debunker and psychic investigator James (the Amazing) Randi will be presenting a lecture at the Royal Ontario Museum th&atre in Toronto at ~30 p.m. (this is, unfortunately, just hours after the Imprint hits the streets, but that’s what we get-for not being a daily). Randi’s lecture is entitled “Search for the Chimera: The Truth about the Occult, the Paranormal and the Supernatural,“, and there are few people alive who possess Randi’s credentials in this itrea. A lo@time professional magician, Randi built his reputation as a critic of the paranormal based on his continual hatiassment and exposure of the Israeli “psychic” and spoon-bender Uri Geller, and his literary talent as the atitbor of two books about the field, Flim-Flam and The Truth about Uri.Gelier. More recently, Randi was honored with the prestigious Mac&thur Fellowship, a $250,000 (US) award to recognize his achievements in the investigation of the paranormal and to allow him to concentrate on his latest targets - the faith healers. $ince Randi has never had.a reputation as,a particularly gentle critic of the various cheap hucksterswho inhabit the grossly commercial world.of the occult, the lecture is bound to be entertaining. For those who are unable to check out Mr. Randi in person, fear not, pilgrim, we have the next best thing. On Wednesday, June 3, I have arranged a. free lunch-hour rrhowinig of an.episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show on which Randi was a guest along with three of Mother Nature’s finest - faith healer Amazing Grace, sychic Joyce Keller and astrologer Irene Hughes. In all honesty, lz0th Keller and Hughes at least present themselves as being capable of carrying on an intelligent conversation. Amazing Grace, unfortunately, gives the impression of someone for whom the word “bimbo” was coined, and her contribution is mostly restricted to generating mayhem and in endless stream of non sequiturs. Ms. Winfrey even distinguishes herself as a fairly no-nonsense host and, except for a couple of minor glitches, keeps things fairly well under control. In addition we have, for your cinematic enjoyment, a sevenminute clip from the Joan Rivers show featuring the aforementioned psychic Uri Geller along with a guest host who, unlike Winfrey, completely embarrasses himself by displaying the Adidas marks on his tongue as he falls over himself ravirig about the grossly amateurish stunts that Geller pawns off on an a.udience that is clearly light years ahead of the host in intellectual ability. The show starts at 12:35 p+m. in CCIlO, so bring a lunch, bring a Wild Duck burger, bring a friend. Most of all, bring a sense of humor.

Media biased toward Deace I

To the editor, I find it unfortunate that the vast majority of the media, now, gives extensive coverage to the activities of the ‘peace’ movement, and supports editorial opinions in favor of this movement. Hardly any credence is given to the opposite view, that it is in fact a dangerous thing. The people in the peace movement claim that it is striving to rid the entire world of nuciear weapons -and make it safer. The only thing that they would succeed in doing, in fact, is to unilaterally disarm the west. This is because, while there is freedom

in the west to protest, and take out full page advertisements in newspapers denouncing western governments ‘militaristic; policies, indepefident peace’ protesters, in the U.S.S.R and the east

Greens seek local chapter . by Martin

Loken

when 200 environmentalists and peace activists formed a party to contest seats in the upcoming provincial election. Since then, Green parties have sprouted across Canada running candidates in most provincial elections and in the 1984 federal election.

Who are the Greens? Militant vegetarians dem<anding rights for leafy green veggies . . . a reactionary flock of dollar bill worshippers . . . a Martian invasion force . , . No! No! and no! The Greens are a worldwide grassroots movement engaging in political and educational activities. They believe human beings are an integral part of the Earth’s ecosystem and as such we must act now to develop sustainable, non-exploitative patterns of living within the finite capacities of our home. Since the mid 1970s the Green political movement has emerged in most of the world’s industrialized nations. Campaigning on the principles of ecological wisdom, social responsibility, grassroots democracy, nonviolence, and _sexual equality, Green parties hav’e won seats ,in the parliaments of West Germany and several other European countries. Canada’s green movement was born in British Columbia in 1983

Green politics begins with the recognition that every aspect of our lives - health and livelihood, the quality of the environment, social interaction, the economy, technology, politics, and government -is profoundly interconnected. Greens see the many global problems currently threatening our survival as facet’s of one systemic crisis. “We’re neither ‘left nor right, we’re in front!” With this slogan Greens challenge ideologies across the traditional left-right spectrum. Both left and right politicians pander to t he%uper-ideology” of industrialism with it’s false gods of unlimi.ted growth, scientific materialism, and unimpeded technological development.

As the British Ecology Party states in “Politics for Life”, “a new politics is emerging which. does not seek the power of traditional politics ‘(to gain domination over others and over the earth), but the creative power which comes from understanding the real value of each individual, and of the earth itself.” The Greens have a diverse following. Those concerned about the environment, social justice, peace, women’s rights, and grassroots democracy find the Greens attractive because they provide a political platform which addresses these issues in a truly alternative way. Greens avoid the hierarchical structures and pretentiousness of the established parties, making them especially attractive to young people. A campus Green group can strive to heighten the ayareness of society’s crises and present refreshing solutions. Anybody who would like to learn more about the Greens and discuss forming a UW Green chapter is invited to meet June 2 at 7:30 _- p,m. in CC135.

BACK TO KINKO’S

in California j,ust as as the state itself

by Cindy Long Imprint staff I wouldn’t know I were entering a campus if not for the enormous wooden sign at the front gate. Nestled in 2,000 acres of rolling grassland and redwood forest, the University of California Santa Cruz provides visitors with breathtaking scenery making the UW campus resembleea parking lot in comparison. I’m riding a city bus and am surprised at how quickly urban has changed to rural. Thl! first signs of life on campus are three cows, doing what cows do best and gazing at the bus with only the mildest interest. Stretching away into the distance, all I see are gently undulating hills of yellow grass dotted with dark green bushes and the occasional grove of trees. Signs claim to point to buildings, but I am unable to spot any of them from the road. The bus begins to climb, the grass becomes forest and I feel I’m in the mountains again as the road twists and winds through the giant evergreens. It’s more like a scenic tour than a city bus ride to the centre of a university.

It’s Sunday, the university is closed and most of the students gone away for the memorial day weekend. My first stop iS the newspaper, appropriately namedCity on &Hill (the campus lies atop a large hill just north of the city proper). The paper’s staff are busy, but editor Jason Roberts takes time out to give me a quick tour, expresses interest in exchanging‘ news and offers -me a number of back copies to peruse. Some concerns are similar to our own: serious-housing shortages (and anti-‘student townspeople), lack of government funding and overcrowding. Racism on campus, barely an issue in Ontario, has prompted “students of colour” to start their own publications, Other topics 1 are the U.S. presence in Central ArneriGa,

AIDS,

alternative

energy and their country’s current administration. I notice they allot more space fpr offcampus news. I leave the paper, get back on the bus (a 24-hr. transit pass costs only $1.00) and head up to the applied science building hoping to find someone with a computer account so I can send e-mail to UW.

The huge stone and glass building is locked and empty. Like all the other buildings, most of them wooden, it blends artfully into its surroundings. I pull on an unyielding door and a passing student lets me in, “You need a key to get in on weekends.” she says cheerfully,, and doesn’t inquire as to whether I’m a student. I wander around the first floor of the deserted hallway. It’s so quiet. Lecture halls seem small, I later find out that students regularly have to sit on the floor.

Oxford University: by Lisa Dillon Imprint staff

and school ties, but instead sprawied openly on college lawns, sporting acid wash Levis and jean jackets, and casually glancing through textbooks while knocking back Coke Classic. I began to have the. uncomfortable sensation that if this was what the academic world had to offer in the way of a Mecca, I could have stayed in Waterloo, and saved myself $1,200. However, the inner feelings for which I was seeking a home urged further search for the”true” Oxford, Accordingly, I set out the next morning from my hotel room at 6:30, with only the street sweepers+ and the lorry drivers to share the streets. Surely in the morning quiet of Oxford streets and colleges I would find the inspiration I was looking for. One vaulting archway, ivy creeping round the gargoyles, beckoned me with portent to explore the quadrangle within.

Many of us begin the difficult search for self-identity by seeking a place which symbolizes what we wish to find within ourselves. Such a physical location can be seen, touched and named, lending the tangibility a fledgling inner focus does not yet possess. Pilgrimages are the result of this search for a physical touchstone, and have been taken in such“different directions as Israel, the Vatican, and Fort Lauderdale. At the moment, my own search for self-identity is of a scholarly bent, and what better representative of my academic aspirations could I choose than England’s Oxford University? With this thought in mind, I found myself travel,ling to Oxford, a sanctum for scholars since the Eighth century and past home of my favourite author, C.S. Lewis. My only hesitation in making a pilgrimage to Oxford lay in whether it would match my preconceived notions and be the legend I needed it to be. True enough, I found striking architecture, and breathtakingspires, towers and domes. Yet before I had spent ten minutes within the city limits, the jarring reality of Oxford struck me, or almost did, as cars careened close past my tenuous position upon a street corner. The town itself was noisy and thick with traffic. Flanking the old college walls were establishments which could be found in any North American city, such as Kentucky Fried Chicken and McDonald%. Students studied not at musty, dimly lit oak desks, strewn with pages of research, attired in corduroys

Suddenly, I began to feel an affinity to the Oxford students, Along with my desire to study in their libraries, consult their professors, and participate in their discussion groups, I now wanted to join them -at their rowing races, in their pubs, and at their student union meetings. Satisfied that the modernizing influences of the 1980s have improved the richness of O&ford’s tradition, rather than cheapening it, I left Oxford with arenewed sense of scholarship and dedication to my search for selflidentity.

Anticipating the fulfillment of my fantasy Oxford, I was surprised to discover the wreckage of a wild party the night before. Beer cans and wine bottles dotted the lawn, bed sheets and towels intertwined round a fountain, a mattress rested on end against a far wall, and crumpled sheets of the university newspaper drifted amid the flower. beds. Although I appreciate the’importance of student party spirit to university life, I could not understand how an English version of Animal House would contribute to my search for higher meaning. Picking up one of the newspapers, The Cherwell, I noticed that it contained serious and topical articles about Aids,

WPIRG: Rental.housihg Not too many years ago, here in Kitchener-Waterloo, students looking for rental accommodation merely had to tailor their expectations to their budgets. A student could spend anywhere from $300 a month for a convenient and trendy two bedroom at the “Greenbriar” to $50 per month & less for shared accommodation within walking distance of the university. But thats all changed now, shared accommodation goes for $200 plus and private rental accommodation for students is becoming a thing of the past. The elimination of low-priced rental accommodation by development and re-development and the lack of investment in new moderately priced rental accommodation are two of the factors that produced this phenominal increase in rental prices. Another factor which particularly affects short term tenants such as students is illegal rents. This is because the most practical time for a landlord to install an illegal rent increase is when a rental unit is between tenants.Fortunately there is now a way many tenants will be able to find out what their legal rent should be merely by making a phone call. The Rent Registry is Ontario’s new system ,for recording legal rents in the province, At present, only buildings or ‘*residential complexes” of more than six units must be registered. Smaller buildings are to be

Sexual Harassment: by Marie Sedivy Imprint staff “I don’t usually h-ire girls,” the professor told Debbie (not her real name] when she expressed interest in his particular field of research. On several occasions, she had spoken to the professor in question about his research. She felt somewhat uncomfortable with his comments about womeri: he regularly put down the way they dress and their “inferior” abilities. Nevertheless, when he was looking for ‘an assistant over the summer, he encouraged her to bring a resume and a brief outline of some of her previous work. Eager to work in that particular area, she returned with the required documents. While arranging a time to further discuss those documents and her work j experience, the professor suddenly asked: “Aren’t you missing something?” Not knowing what he was referring to, she asked him to explain. “Are you trying to look sexy?” he asked by way of explanation. .When she said she was not, he said, “You’re not wearing a bra.” At this point, Debbie decided to leave as quickly as possible. “You’ll have to come back for a feel sometime,” he said as she walked out the door, When she did not respond, he called after her “I’ll get back to you on this.” For a few days following the incident, Debbie was devastated. She went away 1 and cried. The episode confused her; she didn’t know where she could turn to, and for several days could not tell anyone about it. For a while, she wondered whether it was her fault, “Was I wearing th.e wrong clothes?” she questioned. When she finally told her boyfriend, he was aghast and encouraged her to do something about it. She mentioned the incident to several friends and asked for their advice. They suggested she go to the President’s Advisory Committee on Equal Rights fop Men. and Women (PACER). The committee encouraged she write to the dean, which she did. When he did not respond for two months, she decided to try calling him, “The experiencg with the deqn was even more shocking tb&n the original in-l cident,” she now sajk When she got a hold of him, he claimed he was “just going to.call.” The dean of engineering had a meeting with the professor, who admitted that her allegations were true. He agreed that the professor should be reprimanded, “But then he turned around and tried to justify the comments that had been made.” The dean told Debbie the professor had considered it his “duty’: to inform-her that she was improperly dressed for an interview. He compared to to a situation where a student’s grades had dropped and he had asked her if she was going out i,n &%-evenings. He continued to talk off topic. Debbie inquired what she should do about the incident, and he replied, “I don’t think you should do anything -T_ it’s not worth your career.” He went on to say it was not in his power to do anything.

What bothered Debbie about this meeting was that she expected him to help, “but obviously he didn’t.” She was shocked by his insensitivity and by the discrepancy between his words and his actions. While the dean claimed the seriousnesa of the incident could not be overlooked, he did nothing about it. Following this confrontation, Debbie returned to PACER. The committee met with the president. Eventually, the professor received a letter of reprimand. This incident is the only case of sexual harassment on campus which has been made public. Although it took place several years ago, and although awareness and resources have since increased, harassmelit continues to be a major problem on university campuses across North America. Various surveys indicate that twenty to thirty percent of female students are sexually harassed. A recent survey at the University of Manitoba indicated that 42 per cent of women and 26 per cent of men had been sexually harassed. * Sexual harassment is defined as unwanted attention of a sexually oriented nature. Unwanted sexual harassment can range in degree. Basically this activity can be broken into four general categories: 1) sexual insult includes uninvitbd sug: gestive, obscene, or offensive remarks, gestures, or stares; 2) sexual invitation refers sexual propositioning withuut explicit threats or bribes by a person in a position of power or authority; 3) sexual intimidation is a threat or bribe by a person in authority aimed at coercing sexual contact; 4) sexual assault, the mogt severe form of harassment, is sexual contact through use of force, threatened force, or weapon. This is an offense’ in the Criminal Code of Canada. ; Sexual harassment is not the same as sexism: harassment is aimed at a particular person whereas the latter is aimed at the whole sex. Until recently, sexual harassment was defined as an individual problem, and victims, like Debbie, felt isolated and uncertain about their options. This type of harassment is not-limited to tiu+r+professor relationships. Carol (nat hei real name) .experienced sexual harassment at work. She was the first woman to work as a patrol officer for campus ‘security. Her co-workers considered her a novelty. Some didn’t think a woman could do the job. Because of constant sexual jokes aimed at her;Carol 8 ent as little time in the office ati possibP t!. When Carol was in the office, her coworkers pinched or tickled her, making her feel very uncomfortable. She explained to one of them that,sRe did not appreciate such remarks. This same person, however, one day said he was going to unbutton her blouse and moved toward her. As she moved to slap ‘him, he laughed. Carol complained to personnel, but quit the job when she felt management was unwilling to act err her complaints. AfJer she left the job, Carol applied for

by Marie Ssdivy Imprint etaff The law requires all universities to have a sexual harassment policy. At the University of Waterloo, Policy 33 states that all members of the university community have a right to be free from sexual harassment. The policy has three basic principles: members are to be free from undue interference in the work environment; services, benefits, opportunities and facilities provided by the University should be provided without discrimination; and that autho+y should not be abused. Sexual harassment is defined as “unwanted attention of a se’xually oriented nature’which is objectionable to the recipient J’ Sexual harassment occurs when acceptance of sexual advances is a condition of education or employment, or when the advances interfere with work or create a hostiie, offensive, or intimidating work or education environment. There are several ‘resources for victims of harassment:

unemployment insurance; A Canada Empioyment worker phoned her to determine her eligibility for benefits. When he started asking her what she likes to do in her spare time, she wondered what that had to do with her eligibility. Thinking that perhaps he was just trying “to b6 friendly,” she answered. Halfway through their conversation,

The Ethics Zommittee, composed of one -faculty member, one student member, and one staff member deals specifically with complaints under Policy 33. Their ‘mandate is to “look into any question of harassment brought to the committee. The committee tries to first resolve problems informally. Committee members encourage the individual to talk to the instigator of the behavior. “Sometimes they just need advice on how to deal with the problem,” says Lois Claxton, the ataff representative to the committee. In slime instances, the committee acts as a mediator. “Very often it’s a case of misunderstanding as opposed to somethirig intended,” say Claxton. If mediation fails, a formal hearing is held and the committee makes recommendations to the president of the university. Ralph Steal, faculty member can be reachedat x3910; Shelley Borys, student member, can be reached at x6535, and Lois Cl$xton is at x3602.The committee deals with all incidents confidentially.

he suggested they meet for lunkh “to’discuss whether the claim was accepted.” “I thought that if I said no, 1 wouldn’t get the claim, so I said yes.” Carol then turned the tables on her harasser. She invited about a dozen friends to lunch with her, and told him to keep his business separate from his personal life Contjnued on page 11

The Ombudsman, Ray Owens, (x2402) acts as an informal mediator in campus disputes. He is also aware of other complaint avenues. The Women’s Commissioner with the Federation of Students (x6305) is the student representative on women’s issues and may act as an advocate for women vis-a-vis the Ethics Committee. Support and counselling is also available at the Women’s Centre, and Counselling Services. OFF-CAMPUS

Dope addicts and sex voyeurs in CC. by Rob Savickie Imprint staff

“She is very angry at child molesters. ‘They ought to’ be hanged.’ She herself.was introduced to sex at the age of 7 by her father, and she feels he ruined her.” The subject of sex comes up again and again as she talks, but the other people with her, high on LSD or MDA (technically known as 3.4 Methylanedioxyamphetamine)” - try saying that one 20 times over “seem to have no interest.” 1 “She suggests getting the key to the music room because it is known as a prime piece for intercourse.” “Eugene Besruky complained yesterday morning that on his pre*vious shift as turnkey earlier in the week, he had walked in the music room to find a couple engaged in intercourse while others watched. He ordered them out of the music room, he said.“,

When you think of the Campus Centre, what do you think? - a place to hang out - a place to get emergency cash from machines - a place to see free movies on Wednesdays and then rock at the Bombshelter - a place to get ice cream on hot afternoons. Nobody these days really gives much thought as to what goes on there. Such was not the case in the past. Glancing through back copies of the Chevron (Imprint’s predecessor) one day in the Imprint office I came across an article that appeared on the front page of the Globe and Mail on November 28, 1970, The headline read “FROM DOPE ADDICTS TO &EX VOYEURS - WATERLOO U. CENTRE NOCTURNAL MECCA OF SOCIETY’S DROPOUTS.” The prominently placed article goes on to explain that “During the da , the centre has a mixed clientele.. I Most evenings, a pu i serving beer and liquor caters to a range of students who writhe and twitch to hard rock music from ti tape’ recorder, driven at full volume through two five-fpotI high speakers propped on chairs” (ah interesting way of _< describing the rather primitive beginnings of today’sBombshelter.) The problem, of course, seemed to come otit in the after-hours crowd, At the strike of midnight the “straight” (different meaning back then) “students disappear and the Campus Centre is transformed. It becomes a combination flophouse, casino, speakeasy, and drug haven. The story went on to profile the various types (most of whom were non-UW students) that hung around and slept in the Campus Centre. In one such case, a “girl, who gives her age as 17, is sitting on the eide of the Graat Hall which convention reserves far those who take dam. She, a ‘girl friend’ and an older woman and three males are sitting in apparent contemplation on the couches,” Now, this is not to say that this sort of stuff no longer “There is nothing tq, do during the day, so I just sleep.’ goes on. After all “human nature doesn’t change” She comes at night to the ceritre, she says, because ‘they especially the sex thing. I thought a comparison of the don’t hassle you’ at‘ the centre the way people do elseafter-hours life in the Campus Centre then and now was where.

Work efikKcv7ment suffers -k,

W~L% about to leave. I walked by the music (piano) room and, surprise, surprise, I did not hear any strange noises (moans+ groans, screams etc.) inside. Rumour has it that, on occasion, couples have been caught inside, but in any case it is not a daily occurrence (at least as far as getting caught goes). Similarly, I was not able to find a single person sleeping in- the entire Campus Centre. (2 a.m - I know - it was still pretty early). Since 1970, besides societal changes, another major change occurred to “clean up” the Campus Centre. People, officially, are not allowed to fall asleep there. Naturally exceptions are made, but only to people associated with UW (often a student card is demanded). E.ven if you are a UW student, your name will be recorded and, if it is found that you have been there two or three times before, you may be asked to leave. Generally everybody, including the turnkeys, agreed that while little problems may come up now and then, the major problems of the 1970s are gone. As someone said, ‘a lot of people still hang out at night here but most are studying and usually you can hear the piano in the music room.’ I wrote this nostalgia piece because when I first read the article in the Globe and Mail I was both amazed and amused, I am not saying that reading about people hooked’on LSD is funny (quite to the contrary I find it quite sad). What I do find funny is trying to picture this stuff happening in our Campus Centre on such a large scale that in 1970 it deserved mention on the front page of one of Canada’s most prominent newspapers, I also find it quite amazing how things have changed in the last 17 years. As late as five years ago problems were still evident in the centre, but these days all seems to have changed. It was difficult last Sunday to tell which side of the Campus Centre 17 years ago was the side reserved for those who took drugs, considering that no-one at the time was openly smoking dope or passing meedles or snorting cocaine etc. And, in a week from. now, even regular cigarettes will be banned from the great hall - quite a turnaround in less than two decades.. I am not saying this is either good or bad. I am just commenting on what I see. What do you think goes on in ’ the Campus Centre these days? Is my observation more or less right? If you have any exciting anonymous tales about what goes on in the Campus Centre these days , then write. Unfortunately anything too erotic can’t be printed.(even though w&i still have fun reading it), but then you can always give Penthouse Forum a try.

from page 10 in the future. He denied the claim had anything to d.o with lunch, but he sounded nervous and left after 15 minutes or so. Carol alsb reported him to his supervisor. The first incident left Carol confused because she “didn’t have a name to put to things? She acknowledges that in, part the problem lay in the fact that the patrol officers “didn’t know how to handle having women there.” However, she sees no reason for such behavior to continue once it has been made clear that it is unwanted:? think once I make it clear that I don’t like that,‘1 think it should stop. I had told him I didn’t like it.” After she quit, she felt angry that such situations exist. ‘She felt betrayed by management because of their reluctance to change the situation. When the second. incident occurred, momentarily she could. not believe what was happening, but she is satisfied with the way she handled it. “It would be my guess he’d hesitate before doing it again,” she says. “I think he knew he was putting me in a tough spot. I think he knew what he was doing.” Even now, Carol wonders if the Canada Employment worker knew from his files that she had left work because of sexual harassment and figured she was an easytarget. One important character’istic of harassment is that it usually involves a situation of unequal power, such a3 professor-studknt, supervisor-worker,etc. Some sexual harassment policies state that in order to qualify as harassment, it the action must be reasonably perceived as a term or condition of employment or provision of *goods or services generally available to the public. Women experience more forms and frequency of harassment than do men, largely in reflection of the hierarchy in the _ wqrkieg world. fhe- majority gfL I. ,. , Jn.fact, _

victims are women in traditionally male fields, minority women, and women in other powerless situations, such as undergraduates. Contrary to a common myth, women do not “ask for” harassment, just as they do not ask to-be assaulted. Harassment must be understood ai an attempt to assert power over women in a’sexual manner. Harassment is humiliating and degrading and serves to keep women in “their place” by utidermining their ability to work efiiciently. . The first step toward any action on sexual harassment is education. “People have to know what’s going on. You can’t fight it without information+” says Debbie. - Lack of information leaves victims feeling tielpless. Many don’t know how to respond. Suggested responses include making it clear that the behavior is unwanted, as Carol did with the Employment Canada worker. It also helps to keep a record of incidents, writing down specific dialogue, dates, etc. If the harasser is a supervisor or profe’dsor, it helps to document any change in evaluations. Victims of harassment should generate support by talking to co-workers -qr classmates about the_. offender. Very often, they may discover that others have experienced the same thing. It helps to remember that if a person is harassing somebody, chances are very high that it is not the first time they have done this. There has been growing recognition of the

scope

of the

problem.

Legislation

in

various areas addresses the problem. The Canadian Human Rights Act protects individuals from harassment on any prohibited ground of discrimination. While this includes factors such as sex, age, marital status, race religion, national or ethnic origin, disability, etc., sexual harassment is the most commcm probleni dealt with by the Human Rights Committee. Universities ar,e now. requifed . by. law

to have a sexual harassment policy. Many, including Sir Wilfrid Laurier, don’t. The policy at UW deals with, faculty, staff and students.. Sharon Chimmiog; last year’s Women’s Commisioner, has done extensive research regarding sexual harassment. She agrees little can be done if incidents are not reported, and encourages all victims to inform- the Women% Commi$sion of any problems thejr*have encountered in this respect. A .major problem that still needs to be addressed is the difficulty victims of ha.rassment have in reporting incidents. Victims of harassment are often silent because they don’t feel anything will be done about the situation. Some fear losing their jobs if they complain. Women who do make charges are often disbelieved or ridicu.led. Moreover, the amount of time it take&to follow thrQugh a complaint discourages reporting. According to Debbie, “reporting has to be made easier. A loi of women don’t do anything because it’s such a hassle. All those meetings I had to go to went on and on.” Several universities have been more progressive than Waterloo in this regard. Western, York; and the University of British Columbia have sexual harassment officers and reporting centers which provide a centralized place to report incidents. Debbie is also concerned about t’he confidentiality surrounding the issue. while she knows that victims need certain safeguards, she feels there needs to-be more communication of the -problem. “People n&ed to get together about it more.” Despite the hassles and humiliation she went through in making her case known, Debbie is now.glad she did it. “While it was going on I kept thinking “Is this worth it? But she feels “it’s been positive for the campus as a whale. Having an official channel to go through is a big step,” - -.v . . ..I she . concludes. ..~..,


China Crisis -.smoot+h,easy-to-swallow by Cassandra Nicolaou Imprint staff I It was obvious from the beginning that China Crisis could do no wrong. As the band emerged from the dressing room, the capacity crowd, which had been listlessly loitering within the confines of Fed Hall during Wednesday Week’s performance, began pushing its way toward the stage. The cheering and applause began before China Crisis had even played a note. And the cheers continued wntil the end, varying in intensity according to the popularity of the tune. China Crisis appeared at Fed - Hall May 19 as ‘part of BENT’s mandate to bring at least one “big band” to campus each term. J don’t know how you judge whether a band is “big” or not, but I guess China Crisis was big enough; the concert was soId out

well in advance, which is certainly better than can be said’for Hipsway. The band performed a wide variety of material, emphasizing tunes off of the two most recent albums, Flaunt the Imperfection and What Price Paradise? The delivery was clean and technically excellent, if not a little uninspired. China Crisis produces smooth, easy-to-swallow pop music. When playing live, they can more than afford to rough it up a bit and give it some edge. On Tuesday night there wasn’t any edge, ,not even enough to get anyone dancing. People stood‘ and listene.d, although there were a few notable shufflers scattered through the crowd, China Crisis was originally and is still essentially Gary Daly (lead vocalist) and Eddie Lundon (guitar). These two charismatic guys were the stage show, The

other band members [Gazza Johnson on bass, Brian McNeil on keyboards, Kevin Wilkinson on drums ahd some guy on sax), while -obviously competent musicians, contributed little to the band’s overall stage presence. Daly, on the other hand, was always smiling. and bouncing around, making a valiant attempt to sustain any excitement that occasionally erupted. Despite their efforts, it can’t be said that Daly or Lundon worked up a sweat. They put minimal effort into connecting with the audience; aside from making a feti perfunctory comments every now and then, About halfway through the show, Daly donned a cowboy hat for Arigona Sky, their current single. It was a fun moment, but it couldn’t support the whole concert + The Fed Hall gig was part of the band’s seven-week North American tour, which was coming to a-close with five Canadian dates. The band is now enjoying a loiday break and will- then start extensive European touring as the opening act for David Bowie. The point is, exhaustion and boredom had obviously taken a toll on the band’s energy, which is forgivable but disappointing. Nice music played well is always good to hear, but you can throw your China Crisis albuni on the turntable and get the same- thing. Admittedly, there is a slight thrill in seeing faces I.ive that can usually only be seen on Video Hits. It was certainly enough for the loyal fans that turned out that night. It would’ve been nice if China Crisis could’ve provided such an eager audience with a little more effort and excitement.

Wednesday Week finds Canada receptive by Don Kudo ¶mprint staff

.

An opening band faces many dilemmas. First off, the audience is generally in attendance to see the headlining heroes, and thus the indifferent attitude of the crowd often produces only polite response. However, what seems to the greatest problem and most common occurrence for a backup band is that the sound quality never seems to be up to par until the headliners take to the stage. Wednesday Week% set of May 19 at Fed Hall displayed these factors. The uneven nature of the L.A. band’s set was particularly felt due to the crystal clear sound big-name China Crisis received. The difference in musical stylings between the groups, China Crisis being slick and soothing while Wednesday Week sweating out up-tempo guitar based tunes, also contributed to the disparity in tonal treatment. The saviours to Wednesday Week’s performance were the cheery harmonies of guitarist Kristi Callan and bassist Heidi Rodewald. Both ladies also take vocal chores the 1on the1 lead l-21 - rY--‘,a:‘, -I>,, forn:n+fi”

Kathi -pounds out the straightfarward rhythm and David Nolte supplies gu’itar licks galore, if one could of only heard them. Toward the end of the set, the band and soundman finally found a compatible groove during a three-song spurt. A tight instrumental, a cover of the Stones’ Street Fighting Man, and their very own song Missionary, c.ont ained greater interplay of guitars and were devoid of the occasional sloppiness the band Cheery saviours

harmonies were of the performance

the

displayed earlier. Blame the poor sound. Nolte would later explain that the instrumental was coined from an obscure San Francisco punk band. He continued to recount how the band members became acquainted as a result of attending the same clubs in the L.A. area during the punk explosion of the late ’70s. _. The quartet’s first visit to Canada has been enjoyable and response from their six-gig- stint fairlv receDtive. The troupe has

heard talk of the IRS label, home for the mighty REM, being interested. They havp even received AM radio airplay of songs from their album What We Had in some parts of the conti-nent. So be glad you were in attendance to see this band when they unknowns. And now a word from our sponsors . . . well how about a tidrd about the folks who put this show on, the Feds and BENT. A big thumbs up for the new “big band” policy that the Feds have introduced. The pluses for live music at Club Fed are endless with drinking and sound topping the list, not to forget the cheap admission price to see artists tit stones-throw distance. The same two bands that played here would of cost one about three times the price required to see them at Kings’ wood on the Saturday before their engagement Tuesday night. Hopefully, the new policy will continue to draw big crowds to pave the way for lesser known acts to frequent our campus too. Once again to the tenants upstairs, good work and keep it up, and did you hear that Husker Du MIGHT be touring Canada next fall?

Another offering from the thriving Canadianindie scene is Altogether Morris from HamiIton. Presenting themselves on their own label (assumed), Mass Production, their debut long play is a hint of great possibilities. Considering the youth of this band (average age about 21 years), these youngsters show promise in some of their works. With tunes like Avalanche, Olive Tree, or Blue Room, they present an acceptable sound, but a sound which is better served by other groups. Be it twangyguitar pop or heavier guitar pop, they fail to hit something lasting.

by Don Kudo Imprint staff Toronfo’s Change of Heart released one of the best albums by a Canadian act in 1986 entitled 50 ft. Up. Their follow up to SO ft. Up ranks several notches higher. The reason being that Slowdance captures a greater quantity of the four man outfit’s heavy-handed live sound. Change of Heart fails to fall into the problem that many indie bands endure when faced with the gadgetry of the studio. Instead of losing their live presence, Change of Heart manages to mix an ever-present acoustic guitar to refine the raw edges on Slowdance and still include some power chord crunch. l

The best cuts are the “roots” feelings. like the ’60s sentiments expressed in You’ll Remember or the kinda’ ‘garag$ punk of This Morning I Woke. In such tunes they blend in some fine vocal harmony. A sign of the future is evident in their musical experiments on Crying which brought to mind Tom Waits in Rain Dogs. With a few years of refinement this experimental sound may evolve into something’grabby.

Mystery Girl is a prime example of the band’s ability to take a harsh stage number, add the lightness of a hollow body sixstring in the studio, to produce a song that loses none of its driving intensity. While Mystery Girl is a treat at lower wattage, songs like Stress Monkey and Seven Disguises are samples of the loud and forceful side of the band. With a cowbell rapping intro, Seven Disguises is a bit-lighter, fist thruster that melts down into the country-flavoured Girl in ,the Red Velvet Dress. Juice harp, peculiar percussion, and Gord Gano-like [ex-Violent Femmes?] vocals characterize this tune. The release of Slowdance pushed Change-of Heart to the top of the Toronto music scene. They are a kick-ass club crew and a sensible studio outfit, a combination that is hard to beat. Don’t be shy, ask for a Change of Heart Slowdance at most record stores now. fears were destroyed. Though their sound has toughened since their early singles, it is the bass and drums which have been beefed up to bludgeon-power, while the guitar soloing has been kept to a minimum. Mick Blood, the lead singer has a truly terrifying psychotic scream of a voice, displayed to best effect on Here With My Love, the second studio cut on the LP. As part of the super-deluxe “6 songs for the price of an EP package”, four fierce live Lime Spiders cuts are on offer on the B-Side. Contained herein are live versions of Neil Ydung’s Mr. Soul, Love’s My Flash On You, The Remains’ Time of Day and I Was Alone by the previously unheard-of Exotics.

Not so.Electric is noisy and redundant, a rehashing of old Led Zep and Stories bombast,and not the least bit revolutionary or earthshaking. It is not a smokin’ disc, and matters are not helped any which are the by the lyrics, worst hippie nonsense.

That’s the teenage level of humour that pervtideslthe movie, now playing at the Capitol in Kitchener. It’s not especially intriguing humour nor is it innovative: the original Beverly Wills Cop had some freshness - at least Murphy was a loner, apd Brigitte Neilson, who should star most of the humour came from the conflict & & street smart loner COP fighi&&ainst everyof it, (He’s been the same characthing, inciudi<g th,e decadence ter in 48 Hours, Trading P]oces, and pretewisn of Beverly Hills. and to a lesser degree, The In the sequel, however, eve- \ Golden Child) He likes it so ryone wants, to be a comedian, much, about every 15 minute’s except .Muqhy, who’s happy you know he’ll con- someone else playing the con man+ He likes - a receptionist, a lawyer, or that role: he’s shaped a career out even his friends.

And this movie dares nbt to be different: the plot is contrived around a few one-liners as much as around Q7ues Brothers-esque chase sequences, .complete with the dest&ction of police cars at the rate of 10 per minute. But when Jake and Elwood (Belushi and Ackroyd) destroyed things, there was wit, even grace: when Murphy and company do it, there’s only dullness and cliche, When most movies open, they don’t necessarily raise, the value of the production company’s shares - but this one did. Beverly Hills Cop II/was released on May 20. By that evening, the shares of Gulf & Western Inc. (Paramount’s parent comr3anvl rose $2.25 (U.s) to $79.12 6n the New York Stock Exchange.

For any of you out there who want to “dance your face off” (someone should ask a member of EngSoc to demonstrate exactly how this is done], Bratty and the Babysitters are coming to Fed Hall tomorrow [May 30). This seven-member barid has built up a large following in and around Toronto, where they’ve been playing their mix of,pop, rock and reggae for the past three years. Desp.ite a lack of support from a record label, the band has independently released an EP and a video, which recently premiered on MuchMusic. To call the Babysitters’ show energetic is an understatement. As witnessed in T-0. last weekend, Bratty and the Babysitters know how to make their audience happy: they dance, they sweat, and so will you.

KM/S ends season with power of Beethoven’s: 9th by Peter

A grand finish for; the Kitchen&-Waterloo Symphony season was achieved with Beethoven% Ninth Symphony. Conductor Raffi Armenian, the orchestra, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Philharmonic Choir rocked the Centre in the Square May 22 and 23.

AIong with the choir and the soloists, the symphony had one of their most stunning evenings in recent memory. This powerful delivery must be attributed to the guidance of Music Director Raffi Armenian. An example of mI--.-.4,, A “rnlrrri nm’n r~rnrn~m cl

was stated in the forth movement when the orches‘tra swelled over the sound of the bass soloist; to quell the uprising, Mr. Armenian stated his authority by pressing his hand down to bring the orchestra to a rather abrupt hush. This

symphony, in D minor, was written in Beethoven’s final creative period and was first performed in 1824. The music encompasses everything that was-Ludwig von Beethoven: heroic, majestic, passionate, proud, joyous. The work is most remembered for its final movement the choral Ode to Joy: which uses the poetry of %-hillor tn ~xnr~!ss the brotherOpus

Mr. Lichti has nearly become a house soloist at the Centre and to hear him attack a phrase so vigorously, and loud, was surprising. He has progressed considerably in several years. CBC TV was in attendance on Friday evening to shot some footage f&an up&ming feature on Daniel Lichti on COUNTRY IN CANADA. The .other voices in the night were Irena Welhasch (soprano), Carol Ann Feldstein (mezzo-soprano), and Martin Chambers (tenor). The choir must also be lauded for their performance, as

as their director Howard who must have whipped them into this fine shape. A special gesture of applause is extended to the sopranos who did more than survive the high, held notes which are unsympathetic to the voice. This concert was the symphony’s last for the 86-87 season. It also marked rhe last performance of Moshe Hammer as concertmaster, Mr Hammer, after a five year involvement with the KWS, is gearing his time toother musical pursuits in Toronto best wishes sir. Also, Raffi Armenian will step aside next year as principal conductor because he is on a sabbatical to complete his opera.

Currently recording on the Rounder-Label, his latest album is titled Wolf Tracks, and he hopes to return to the studio for anther album in August..After this recording session, the Roadmasters will hit the trail to the West Coast, travelling all the way up ‘to Vancouver.
