Yes and no sides gearing up for vote by Mike O'Driscoll Imprint staff With less than two weeks togo until UW students head to the polls to decide the fate of Waterloo's membership in the Canadian Federation of S t d e n t s , the battle lines have been drawn. Both sides have initiated their mail-out and publicity campaigns, and already one public forum has been held to discuss the issue. The CFS referendum will be held November 9 and 10.All UW students are eligible to vote, the outcome will decide whether or not Waterloo remains a fee-paying member of the CFS. Although both the leadipg proponents and opponents of CFS membership are executive members of the Federation of Students, they'll be chairing their respective campaigns in a non-official capacity. Heading up the pro-membership camp are Federation President Ted Carlton and Darren Meister, chairman of the Board of External Liaison. On the other side of the issue is Tim Jackson, chairman of the Board of Academic Affairs. The main areas of contention include the effectiveness of the CFS as a political lobby group on the federal level, whether or not CFS policy represents the ,concerns of UW students, and how best to implement weighted voting [allocating votes within CFS on the basis of student population). Both Jackson and Meister spoke with Imprint this week, outlining their views on the referendum.

affairs] were adopted in 1982 when the federation started. No policy like that, except for one, has been adopted since then. The one adopted was that the CFS was in favour of global disarmament." Meister also noted that any CFS policy has a limited fiveyear life span, and a s of the next CFS meeting in mid-November, those adopted in 1982 will be off the books. "We are strictly (oriented toward) the rights of students. funding. and accessibility," Meister said. Meister also said the CFS is a respected lobby group on Parliament Hill. Liberal leader John Turner, for example, has noted that "The Canadian Federation of Students continues to be an important and strong voice for post secondary education in Ottawa." However, Jackson said that CFS lobbying is nonetheless ineffective. H e s a i d f e d e r a l Members of Parliament do not consider the CFS to be a voi:e worth listening to, noting that .. , if the MP's aren't listening to CFS, ,,then we're wasting our time. In regards to funding, Meister quoted figures saying the federal government contributes more than 89 per cent of the base oper87 atinggrarrts to UW;w&las per cent of the cost of student loans in this province. "There's a large- amount of money that is coming from the federal government, the vast majority of it in fact, said Meister, so we need a national student$ organizhtion that will allow us to have a say where the money is going." But the anti-membership QrouDsaid that while the federal govknment does contribute to the university coffers, it is ultimately the provincial government that distributes the money. "We need to concentrate on the provincial government. The Ontario Federation of Students granted does a good job with that, and they're an effective lobby group, so I think w e just need to keep lobbying the provincial government to get the bulk of money from the federal government." Jackson said.

present s y s z m means the larger schools are outnumbered by smaller institutions, and therefore misrepresented. Jackson said the fight for weighted voting is best carried out externally. "How realistic is it, that a bunch of small schools, who would have to vote on weighted voting, would let that pass. If we were a small school, we wouldn't concede anything that was goingto harm us." He said he hopes, then, to use a "no" vote from Waterloo, along with the negative decisions already handed down by Queen's and Western, a s leverage to enact change in the CFS voting procedures. But Meister said dropping out the CFS will forever seal the fate of weighted voting. "An organization that has stayed out, has never got a change within CFS," said Meister. He said he believes that a show of good faith on Waterloo's part will be returned by CFS. In addition, Meister said the CFS membership is aware that a change to weighted voting will be enough to woo the larger nonmember schools into their ranks, and increase the organization's financiJ and political power. He said the CFS has already adopted a plan to examine weighted voting, and the transition will be proposed at the November meeting, In addition to its lobbying efforts the CFS offers several student services. These include Travel Cuts, the Student Work Abroad Programme, the Canadian Programming Service (an entertainment bureau], and the Studentsaver discount card. Membership in the CFS costs each UW student $2 per term.

Jackson said CFS policy does not address the needs, or necessarily the views, of students at UW. He contends the CFS is unwarranted in addressing issues that rest outside the domain of student concerns. Noting the CFS spends thousands of dollars a year on national forums, Jackson said: "If we're spending that much money on these f o r m s , then why the hell are we wasting that money talking about things like Chile and El Salvador? I may agree with some of those policies (antiUS interventionism) but they certainly are not what we should be spending our time worrying about." Meister, on the other hand, said the CFS has already shifted its policies toward more student-oriented issues. "All of thow policies (foreign

Scientist/broadcaster David Suzuki Came to the Humanities Theatre this week to promote his new novel, Metamorphosis. The book deals mainly with Suzuki's own life, including his experiences as a young Japanese Canadian, as a scientist and in the world of broadcasting. Although the purpose of the lecture dealt mainly with thepromotion of the book, much of Suzuki's insight was given on a variety of issues during the question period afterward, The field of science is, of course, an area that hits home with Suzuki. He discussed the "complete mystery" that most scientists generate to the public and sees this as unfortunate. He is one of the few individuals in the field who feels it is vital to make his scientific knowledge understandable to the pdblic. "Most scientists choose to shut contlnued on page 4

The Waterloo Warriors football saga continues. At a press conference Tuesday, former coach Bob McKillop criticized team members and university administration alike for their roles in this month's controversies' which led to his resignation. Meanwhile, administrative heads continue to huddle in a effort to determine the fate of the UW football program. Waterloo completed its ,third consecutive 0-7seasoh last Saturday in Windsor. In a prepared statement, McKillop said, "I .can honestly say that despite the overall wonlost record oY our team that the time has been rewarding, enjoyable and worthwhile." Despite the player rebellion which surrounded his resignation two weeks ago, McKillop decided to coach the final two games of the season. The reasoning, said McKillop, was simple. "I truly believe that the football program at the University of Waterloo can be competttive with t h r ---t of the league.

However, he also revealed that when he was asked tostep down, all but one other coach agreed to join him in a sign of support. This would have left the Warriors hard pressed to complete their OUAA schedule. "This, in my opinion, would have ended the football program at this university," said McKillop. McKillop was highly critical of the players' secret vote in which they voiced overwhelming disapproval of his coaching. The players held a secret vote after the October 8 game in Guelph where McKillop announced his knowledge of a plot t o get him fired. McKillop was even more critical of how the players bypassed him and the athletic administration and went s t r a i g h t 3 the university administration. "The involvement of the university administration for up to a month previous to my being told by an outside party is, in my view, a gross error in manage ment procedure," said McKillop He added, "the fact that team

A graduate from the Univer-’ sity of Twente, Holland, spent the- last week in and about the campus here at the University of Waterloo.Jan Miltenburg, a 26year-old graduate in government administration, is on a fivemonth sojourn through North and CentraI America. Miltenburg’s central purpose is liaison with Dutch students abroad on work and study terms. Jan also is acting as a photo-correspondent for his university’s newspaper. According to Miltenburg, the. University of Twente is a suburban university similar to the UW. Primarily a technical and engineering school it shares a coop exchange program with the UW and other schools. Currently the exchange is job-oriented, but classroom education will soon also be reciprocated. Miltenburg’s journey began two weeks ago in New York City. Washington DL was next on his itinerary and he then journeyed north to Waterloo. In Waterloo, Jan took the opportunity to meet with a Dutch student here on a work-term from the University of Twente. As well, Miltenburg found occasion to use Imprint’s darkroom facilities in assistance of his journalistic mission. Miltenburg found the students here in Waterloo to be both congenial and

’ Anti-war activist slams U.S. mpolicy Centre room 110. The audience+ for the most part, ivas highly sympathetic to Berrigan’s cause.

by Mike Brown Imprint staff Anti-war activists and resisters were on campus Tuesday. American Philip Berrigan and Torontonian Ken Hancock were brought to campus by the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group. Berrigan lectured before 20 students and a handful of media. He summed up American activities since World War II as ruthless, but not without a state department goal within consid+ eration.

On the topic of students’ role in the peace movement, Berrigan asserted that some people will drop out because it is what they have to do. “Some of the worst institutions (universities) are south of the border.” Berrigan was referring to the socially and politically stifled atmosphere on American campuses. When he asked if it was any different in Canada, the crowd replied no it was not.

The United States’ policy in the third world is to leave a state in such a mess, [economically and socially) that no ideology could turn such a nation into a “model” state, says Berrigan, The bleach-grey htiired Berrigan chatted informally in front of the unlit fireplace of Campus

Three major questions of morality surfaced during the discussion. “Does the Human family have a right to survive?“‘“What is our vision (of a world) after a nuclear war?” “ I30 we go into a fetal crouch every time we are faced with breaking theraw (for a moral cause)?”

The organization was incorporated last year, but has been around informally for quite sometime. A national headquarters, said Monique Lanoix (one of the committee members of the University of Guelph’s CFRU Radio), would create a unified front when it is necessary for the organization to lobby the CRTC [Canadian Radio and Television PROCAN (PerCommission), forming Rights Organization of Canada], or CAPAC (Compos-‘ ers, Authors, and Publishers Association of Caneda).

This survey excludes the smaller stations who, on a whole, play the lessknown artists and not the more popular ones frequently played by the larger stations; yet the small stations (mostly non’ profit) are still required to pay to the general pool.

truth or make-up? While in the Math and Computer building this week for a midterm, I noticed a sign posted that read something like, “Math nerds unite! We can’t take Linda Frufn’s book sitting at our terminals!” For those of you that missed the recent book review, Frum has jusi published a guide to Canadian universities, and Waterloo seems to rate as one of.the geekiest. Well, since taking a look at the guide, I’ve conducted some of my own on-campus research. Certain that the typical garb on campus does not include flood pants and poIyester shirts as Frum reported, I’ve been observing people’s clothes fopseveral weeks now. Frum was right when she said sweats were popular on campus, but even after I started stopping people to measure the length of their pants compared to their leg length, I just didn’t find that many pairs of floods. However I did get some students asking me if I*would go out with them because they didn’t know when they’d ever .see another UW woman to ask out. Others just hit me with their black vinyl briefcases, muttering that I was going to make them miss their interview. As for polyester shirts, they must be hidden under the numerous velour shirts and fake fur vests I‘saw people wearing. Either that or stuffed in the backs of everyone’s closets with their flood pants, hidden after.they read Frum’s remarks. Why Frum didn’t mention “jeans” under her typic4 garb list is beyond me. Pre-faded, flotiered, bleached, stonewash, rockwash, I acidwash, and neverwash denim is everywhere. I bet most students just don’t feel right if they heed over to camjpus without wearing at least one piece of denim clothing. Just as long as they have something in polyester to mismatch.

Auditor General Kenneth Dye’s annual report is both good and bad news for the Canada’s Conservative government. While the 1987 report;zl;‘eleased this week, contains th’e usual assortment of horror stories about federal spending ($7.5 million for I bullets that won’t, shoot straight, $5.*milli?n to the West Edmontog;Mall), it does find the government is gaining some control over its spknding. This somewhat rosy finding is dftiet, howe ver, by Dye’s conclusion that “there is no political will” within the government to implement a better financial management policy. This, in a nutshell, is the problem plaguing &ian Mulroney’s party. The Progressive Conservatives won an overwhelming majority of seats in the 1984 election on a promise of change, change from the tired-politics of a worn-out Liberal government. Yet, almost from daylone, the Tories have shown they lack the initiative and will to follow-up on their. election platform. The Canadian public, liking what they had heard in the campaign, voted en masse for tbe Tories, only to discover they’d bought a pig in a poke. Despite having been pointed in the right direction by the public, the PCs refused to follow the rout& preferring instead to wallow in indecision.

A Pilgrim’s Petqwciitie On Christ I’ve been talking about a number of subjects over the last four weeks and have had a variety of responses from people, and I realized I had never really defined what I mean-when I talk about being a Christian or who Christ is in my life, So I figvred it was about time. Now obviously Jesus Christ is very important to the Christian faith. Ef it wasn’t for His life, His death, and His resurrection from the dead, Christianity wouldn’t exist. We would presumably be Jews. Yet He did live and die so wht difference does His life make? Sunday. That’s Many people these days go to church ever great. God’s word says, Forsake not the assemb r ing of yourselves together: Yet, during the rest of the week, these same people live as if being a Christian was the farthest thing from their minds. In the words of Randy Stonehill, ‘*They give their spirits a fix, and they think their safe.“. What does it mean to be a Christian then? Is it going to church? No. Is it reading the Bible? No. Is it praying? No. Then what is it? After all, all these things that I have said are not what being a Christian is all about are the things that most Christians (or perhaps I should say Evangelical Christians, to admit my bias], would say are essential to the Christian life. If these things are not what being a Christian is all about, then what is? Well, being a Christian means believing in Jesus Christ as-the One and only Son of God. It means believing He died on the cross to forgive our sins, and it means learning to love Him. Well, that’s great. I can believe He’s the Son of God, and I can believe He died on the cross, but how do I go about learning to love Him? Well, if you were in a relationship with someone and you cared about them a great deal, let’s say a girlfriend or a boyfriend, then how would you learn to love them? You would spend time with them. You would do the things that they enjoy doing. You would try to make them happy, even if sometimes it meant that you weren’t quite as happy as you would like to be, Yet, because you trust that they love you, you would know that they are going to work at doing the best for you as well. That’s just a taste of what it is like living for God, He know’s you better th&i you know yourself. He knows exactly what you need (and even what you want although you might not get that!) and will always give it to you. He will do everything in His power to make your life the best it can be, and most importantly, He will never leave you. It doesn’t matter what you do, His love never fails. Being a Christian means loving God and loving your neighbour as yourself. The first letter to the church in Corinth (1 Corinthians) Chapter 13, verses 5% (the first part of 8) define love in this way: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no recordof wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.% always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love neyer fails. As a Christian, it’s great to know that I have someone to count on who loves me in this way. I hope and pray that I can learn more and more to love Him back in this wa’y and also to love those around me in this wa . I will consider myself very blessed indeed if any of my relations K ips on this earth (hopefully with a person to be called my wife) reflect the love the Jesus Christ has for me and you* God bless you.

mations of the way things are being “the truth”. The essence of Josee’s message is love, She stands firm in her feelings about “lustful acts” outside a loving relationship, she is equally firm on her strong belief that loving relationships, of any sexual orientation, are an affirmation of God’s love. How wonderful to see religion presented ‘here with a warm, human face fgr a change. 4 What, on the other hand, is the essential message of Catharine’s ietter? In some ways it may seema bit like Josee’s. She says ‘*we arp aI1 human beings, we all share humanity.” The difference is starkly evident with the introduction of her measure of humanity - not love, but “truth”. While she has “great compassion” for us, she leaves no doubt as to her belief that those who don’t follow the “true way of humanity” will come under the knife of “evolution”. Given this context, the mention of AIDS was, to say the least, unfortonate. I am willing to give Ms. Wilsori the benefit of the doubt, but the fact remains that I was left with the distinct impression that

AIDS was being named as an agent of evolution to return the universe from “chaos” to equilibrium”. A moral universe, whi!e it may-be comforting, is a very difficult concept, given all the inconsistencies.

If AIDS is evolution’s way of saying NO, what is cancer? Are cer-

tain diseases sent to chastise those who do not follow the “true way”? If AIDS was created to “eradicate” homosexuals, why are heterosexuals suffering and dying? Catharine, you ask the question “what really is truth?” To ask what is truth is to be human; to have an anjlwer is to be divine. “Truth” exists solely as a concept, “inherent truth” an unmaking likely foundation for an authoritative position. We all have reason to fear when “truth”, rather than love, is made the arbiter of human affairs, there is no “truth”. There

are only

approximations,

agrbed

upon for a time by a sufficient number of people to give it cespectability and authority. SuTh approximations litter the road our kind has travelled like so many abandoned cars. I have no faith in such “frufhi’. An approximation of an “inherent truth” - racial superiority for example - can lead to concentration camps built by skilled engineers and staffed by qualified doctors, all convinced they are “right”. Intelligerice, of itself, is capable of anything; it is only love in all its forms that keeps us human.

Recently I have been inspired to recount a little about the big “coming out”. A friend of mine was telling me of someone he knew who tias quite adamarit that everyone should be as out as possible. Immediately. Interesting, I thought. My own coming out ex&perience was, I suppose, in some ways unique (h20mophobic parents can do that to a person), but probably not so dissimilar from what

out is a “bad” thing, I do believe that for most people, myself included, it is very trying and traumatic. When I “came out” - not something i just did one night, but a process that has lasted a couple of years - I had pre-conditioned homophobia to deal with, my own perceptions of what my faith said about persons with a same-sex orientation, what I knew about societies attitudes toward gay men and women, what I knew about the “gay lifestyle” (which is, I have subsequently found out, just as varied as the “straight lifestyle”, and not just of one type), and feelings pf being somehow inadequate - not quite measuring up somehow to the rest of th,e “normal” people. That is quite a bit to try and overcome. Only last fall did I finally come to terms with my Gad (as I have mentioned before, I am a Christian), realizing that despite what lerry Falwell and his cohorts espouse, God does not hate me for loving, and showing that love in a physical way to, another man. I also got quite a bit of support from various members of my own church [Catholic) which was, quite frankly, very unexpected, colisidering the vatican’s “official”.position on this whole deal, and even more greatly appreciated. The homophobia I dealt with by finally admitting to myself that, yes, I am gay, and even then it took me a while to leave the beloved. label of “bisexual” behind and admit that I was pretty well not at all interested in the opposite gender for sexual relations. Please do not misread this to say that I do not believe there are true bisexuals - I just know that I used the label as a crutch for I know (as did Dr. Kinsey) that there is a whole scale of sexual orientations, ranging from completely opposite-sex preferences to completely same-sex preferences. I also learned a great deal about “alternate” ways of life as a gay person. I know of two men that have been in a monogamous relationship for more than five years -married, if you will - and I have decided that, if they could do it, so can I. It is for that that I am looking. Society’s attitudes, unfortunately, for the most part, have not been‘too different from what I had expected. That is one of the reasons why I wrjte this column. This university campus, however, I have found, is really a great deal ahead of the majority of society is being able to accept a person for who they are and not what they are. As far as feeling inadequate, well, I think 1 have dispelled most of those beliefs from my mind. I wrote (more like listed] a little while ago about many gay men in history, all of whom made. varying contributions to “personkind”. It is ratheb hard to see da .Vinci or Oscar Wilde as “inadequate”. That, briefly, is my “coming out” experience. If you find yourself at that stage where it is time to “step out of the darkness of your closet”, if you will, I think that it is something that really should not be rushed. I took my time, accepting a lot of things that would have been simply too difficult to handle all at once. I am the type of person that wants everything to be “just so”right now, but this was one thing that I let thappen at its own pace. Accepting yourself and presenting yourself as “a gay person” [and that does not necessarily mean walking around with a placard reading “I’M GAY”] is, I believe, something that you must be comfortable with inside - you need to feel secure in your own sexuality. And, varying degrees of security will lead to varying degrees of being “out”. As I said before, coming out is a process, not an overnight event. And lastly, you need to learn $0 enjoy yourself and your life. Being you, and being gay. To the editor,

Stock market has. abearing on our jobs To ti

editor,

It is not surprising that many people do not understand the stock + market, nor want to know about it. To those who do not actively articipate in it, it appears frivo Pous at best. But when the editor of this campus’ newspaper suggests that this past week’s performance of the stock market is meaningless and frustrating to the average viewer, I am dismayed. To co-op students and graduates, this directly affects their job prospects. We all know that available co-op jobs have outnumbered students for the past three years (not surprisingly, the TSE and Dow Jones has been rising almost continuously since 1982). It wasn’t alwavs this good, though. Does anyone remember the 1981-2 recession when the stock markets were in a prolonged slump and co: ops were taking jobs at McDo-

nald’s? So with the apparent collapse of the .world’s stock markets, what does this means to our future job potential? Already many compauies have laid off thousand of employees because of this. Is it not then reasonable to expect co-op jobs to diminish? I raise the issue of stock markets and how they affect our lived because of their importance to all of us; directly to the 20 per cent of Canadians who do invest, and indirectly as a symbolic barometer of our livelihood. We should all take an interest in them and make efforts to understand how they work. If Canadians, and especially students, do this, we all have a better chance of understanding how our economy works, what effects it, and ultimately what it means to ’ the average person Steven Burnett 4A Systems Design

But how many of us really know how their grown. Apples represent a multi-million dollar industry. In Ontario there were approximately three million apple trees in 1986. Macintosh apples represent the largest market share at more than $14 million dollars-in 1985. Apple production is no longer a matter of planting a tree and harvestiug fruit after a few years. There are m-ore than 30 pests (insects, diseases) which attack the apple directly and indirectly [harming the bark or leaves of the trees). They include the white apple leafhopper which can scar apples. Most pests have two or more generations during

Have you ever stopped to think about forests? Most people don’t, really, although they may consider the attractiveness of the trees in the fall or the cool, calm shelter a forest gives as they hike through it. But you should think about forests because in this modern world th!$y are an endangered species. And as they suffer so do you and I. Our forests are disappearing. In the US. between 1967 and 1975, 70 million acres of forest land was lost to other uses. The situation is even worse in other areas of the world. Every year, between 13.8 million acres and 51.9 million acres of tropical rainforest is destroyed. Using the conservative estimate, that means a loss of more than 37,000 acres every day. Forests are resources that give great benefits, both to man and the world. Tropical forestscontain a vast number of plant species, some of which have proven medically or agriculturally beneficial and many, many more whose properties have yet to be explored. Ecologically, forests enhance the climate, the soil, the groundwater leveis and the atmosphere. Economically they are an essential supply of fuel, building supplies and paper. In fact, the demand for wood products is growing faster than the population. 1t is predicted that, at current deforestation’rates, the world will experience a wood famine within two generations. Try to imagine going to university with no textbooks and nothing to take notes on. The water cycle is greatly influenced by the presence of a forest, Forested areas receive more rain than’non-forksted areas. The trees transmit the water down into the ground, raising the water table andpreventing runoff. Because there is little runoff there is no soil erosion and no flouding. All soil erosion in the Amazon basin is due to the removal of the forest. Floods in Bangladesh and China have been blamed on the deforestation of areas u -river. Forests enhance t 1 e soil they live in. The leaves tliey drop add nutrients to the dirt which builds up into good quality topsoil. Trees can grow almost anywhere, even soil that can’t support grass for grazing animals. The rainforests are a good example of this; below the few inches of high quality soil produced by the forest the soil is almost sterile. . The world is experiencing an increase in the carbon, dioxide levels in the atmosphere. About 80 per cent of the carbon released into ‘the air

history of the orchard. These pesticides can also have detrimental effects on the environment if imprope!ly applied. To address the growing limitations and cost of pesticide s raying the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture an B Food (OMAF) have adopted an alternative control program known as Integrated Pest Management (IPM); Specialists within ‘OMAF will provide advice to area growers on this program. IPM is a recent innovation in the apple growing industry. Prior to 1969 apple trees were sprayed frequently during the growing season. This was a “preventative” program in the sense that they would spray the trees before a perceived problem developed. However this method proved both costly and time consuming. In lg$g.OMAF began examiuing the effects of reduced spray application and the efficiency of spray application. From this developed an IPM program for apple production. It involves the selection and proper mixture of pesticides, orchard sanitation, and the use of pest traps and efficient sprayers. Although the IPM program has been successful there are inherent problems. For examplk the ability of pests to become resistant to pesticides after many exposures remains problematic. In this case

every year is due to deforestation. This is because trees incorporate 10 to 20 times as much carbon as the same area of crops or pasture. There is widespread agreement that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is warming the earth’s climate. As attractive as that may seem on a cold October afternoon, this warming trend has its negative aspects: the polar icecaps could partially melt, flooding low-lying coastal areas including most of Florida and New York City. The rapid destruction of the rainforests is particularly critical. Although they cover less than seven per cent of the world’s area, these tropical forests contain 50 per cent of all the world’s species. The balance of nature is very delicate there, with many species dependent on each other. A large percentage of these tropical species are unique to a small area; destroying the area results in the loss of that species together with all species that depend upon it. Because of the large scale destruction of the rainforests, several species are becoming extinct every hour. Once destroyed, it will take an area of rainforest from 150 to l;aM1 years to retcrn to its original complexity and diversity. If the present tro icaldeforestation rates continue, the world wi P 1 lose up to 66 per cent of its plant species and 89 per cent of its bird species. Many of these birds are Canadian birds that winter in South America. The lost plants could contain a disease resistant gene or a chemical to cure AIDS., Once gone, they can never be recovered. The driving’ force behind this loss of forest is the meat industry. Most conversions of forest land are to grazing land. Two-thirds oft he forest lost in the US. between 1988 and 1975 was due to conversion to pasture. More than 40 per cent of Central America’s rainforests have been converted to cattle pasture to provide cheap, low quality beef for export to the North American market. (This has the effect of lowering the price of a hamburger by a whole five cents per pound.) The loss of forests has many ramifications for your future and mine. We should all do what we can to slow and hopefully stop this loss. There are a couple of things you can do. One is to ease pressure on the forests by eating less meat, therebyreducing the demand. Another thing you can do JS to become active in the fight to stop deforestation. On campus, the Rainforest Action Club of Waterloo is working toward that end. They can be contacted for information through the Vegetarian Club mailbox in the Fed Office.

Clearly we must continue research which reduces the need for pesticide applications. An IPM program in Pennsylvaniahas produced very good results in decreaskng blemishes on ap les through both reduced spray application an B the use of pest traps. The pesticides used were either botanical or sulphur based. However we must also work on changing the mindset which equates good health with a brilliant, unscuffed’apple, which is in fact an anomaly. Apples simply do not grow that way naturally, nor do many other staples. Many farmers and growers stuck on the pesticide treadmill for years are now re-evaluating the costs and benefits of pesticide use. Maybe consumers should be doing the same.

The Forgotten

Holocaust

It is called the forgotten holocaust, a period during 1932 - 1933, when more than seven million Soviet citizens were starved to death. Fifty-five years ago, Stalin was dumping millions of tons of Ukrainian wheat un the Western markets, while in Ukraine, men, women, and dhildren were dying of starvation at the rate of 25,000 per day, 17 human beings a minute. During both these years, the harvest was only slightly inferior to those of preceding years, and there were sufficient food supplies to feed the entire population. The devasting ‘famine was a deliberate extermination of defenseless victims perpetrated by the Soviet communist regime. The people of Ukraine, the breadbasket of .&rope+ were amongst the most gifted farmers in Europe. The majority of Ukrainians were peasants who were the least Pussified sector. of the Ukrainian society. They were determined to form their independent democratic state to enjoy the freedom that they briefly had in 19184922, after the Russian revolution, Their fierce opposition to communism formed the foundation of the Ukrainian struggle for national survival,

Struggle *for national

survival

The famine was orchestrated by Stalin’s ruthless regime to break the peasant’s resistance to collectivisation, and to simultaneously break the backbone of the Ukrainian national revival. The main target of this enormous crime against humanity was the Ukrainian peasants who had always been individual landowners, and intended to remain that way. The peasants had a strong influence on Ukrainian Society and because of them, the Ukrainian language was introduced gradutilly into schools and the administration, Many urban centres Ukrainianized with the influx of Ukrainian peasants into cities. hany Ukrainian economists were accusing Russia of colonial exploitation of Ukrainian and writers advocated a Western orientation for Ukrainian culture while Ukrainian communists demanded greater autonomy for Ukraine, The strong possibility of Ukraine separating from Russia was intolerable to Stalin and his communist ideology. Stalin’s policy of rapid industrialization and militarisation demanded exorbitant amount of funds. Stalin decided the peasants and agriculture in general would pay for the industrialisation. tiy dealing with collective farms, rather than with individual landowners, it would be easier for.the state to confiscate agricultural products which would provide funds necessary for capital investment industry. By orchestrating ai artificial famine, Stalin accomplished two devious goals: Firstly he destroyed about a quarter of the Ukranian peasantry and thus eliminated all opposition to collectivisation, Secondly, he undermined the strong up; surging anti-communist Ukrainian national revival. Stalin executed his plan to starve innocent peasants with horrifying efficiency. All food was confiscated from the villages. Impossibly high grain production quotas were set, and hunger and starvation was the penalty for the peasants’ failure to attain the “commonly set goals”. Persistent peasants were shot, arrested, or exiled to Siberia, The remainder were left to die in the fevastated villages; while well-fed squads of police supervised the victims. rhe borders of Ukraine were sealed off 3y the military to prevent any migration .n search my help

Initially the great cover-up succeeded, and the famine faded from Western conscience, and eventually r from print and memory, Twenty-five per cent of the Ukrainian population was deliberately starved within ,two years and not a word about it in objective scholarly literature of the thirties and forties. The famine had become a non-fact not only in the Soviet Union, but shamefully also in the West. Only recently, in the last decade or so, researchers, professors, and journalists such as Robert Conquest and William Buckley Jr. have made considerable effort to extensively document and research this atrocity. According to a communist quoted in conquest’s “Harvest of Sorrow”, the reasons for the supression of truth was the fact that “the USSR ‘could only win the support of workers in the capitalist countries if the human costs of its policies was concealed”. As George Orwell complained, “Hugh events Iike the Ukraine famine of 1933, involving the deaths of millions of people, have: actually escaped the attention of the majority of English russophiles”. Conquest adds that it “was not only a matter of pure ressophiles but also of a large and influential body of Western thought”. I The scandal is not that they justified the Soviet actions, but that they refused to hear about them, that they were not prepared to face the evidence. The Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933 was a horrendous and atrocious crime against humanity. To this day, the communist Soviet authorities attempt to deny the existence of this atrocity, des- pite the overwhelming evidence which confirms its. horrendous existence, beyond any reasonable doubt. The systematic murder of seven million innocent people, the human .suffering, and the shamefully successful cover-up. is difficult for the human mind to imagine . and accept. The*actions of Stalin and of subsequent communist Soviet governments re-emphasizes the danger that the elaborate communist disinformation campaign poses to individuaF rights and freedoms. in the free democratic Western World. . . l

members. A great deal of this inventory was never consumed and.it eventually spoiled. Many peasants, driven by ravaging hunger, were killed in their futile * attempts to capture these well-guarded inventories of grain. An American correspondent who managed to enter the famished region expressed shock when he “saw hugh pyramids of grain, piled high, rotting and smoking from internal combustion.” The psychopathy of Stalinism may be seen in the fact that no.word about the famine was allowed to appear in the press or be discussed elsewbhere. Peqple

prominent Westerners such as American journalist Walter Durranty, french politician Edouard Herriot, and celebrities such as George Bernard Shaw repeated Soviet lies to the West, and contributed to the regime’s disinformation campaign by disparaging the.victims of the famine, and ridiculing their testimony. Even the democratic governments of the depression-hit West preferred to remain silent over Communist Russia’s atrocities in order to continue trading.

Reference to famine earned people five or more years in l&our who referred to it were subject to arrest for anti-Soviet propaganda, usually receiving five or more years in labour bamps. Robert Conquest in his recent book “Harvest of Sorrow” describes how “Even the officials who coul,d see death, all around - did not permit themselv’es - to see starvation. This refusal to countenance the truth or allow the faintest reference to reality was certainly part of Stalin’s general plan.” Moscow’s

Magic, music, and comedy were served to an appreciative audience at the Eighth Annual Village Benefit Coffee House. The show began with “Al and Larissa”, a vocal and guitar duo from St. Paul’s College, who gave fine renditions of some Simon and Garfunkel classics. They invited their listeners to approach the stage and sing along, thereby establishing the warm and friendly atmosphere that was maintained throughout the evening. Following them, Tim Jackson of East 6, one of two magicians in the show, dazzled the audience with card tricks and various magical illusions. Later on, the again audience was once ushered into a world of wonders under the spell of Lee Wiener, who operates professionally out of Rueben’s and Wong rest aurant. In Out,-the first of three rock bands slated for the show, entertained with some sophisticated rock classics from Genesis, Pink Floyd and ‘Simple Minds. All of their selections were delivered with a strong vocal performance. The two other bands, The Neon Tomatoes and LeftHanded Weekend, opted for a more basic, hard driving rock style, selecting their material from the Who, The Scorpions, Chuck Berry and Teenage Head. Additional musical entertainment was provided by Amy Pun, a talented pianist from East 3.

The philosophy of ohi,losophies .’ Everyone has a philosophy,

whether th.tq+know it or not

1 by John Kominek Harry flinswanger, editor of The Objectivist Forum, a bimonthly magazine on Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, will speak at the University of Waterloo November 3. In preparation for his lecture, the following interview was conducted bpthe campus’ Students of Objectivism club. Q: We often hear that philosophy is not practical, that it might be fun 88 an intellectual game, or as s‘omething to muse about over a few beers, but it does not apply to man’s day-to-day life. What do you have to say about that?.

-Pragmatism wrong

.

A: I think the people who say that have unfortunately accepted a very wrong philosophy: the philosophy of pragmatism. That very statement, “philosophy is only a game”, is a philosophical statement - a false one, The philosophy of pragmatism, which I very much oppose, says that principles of atiy kind, but especially broad philosophical rinciples, are meaningless or rl ave no real “cash value”. This is the philosophy that has dominated America and, to a -lesser extent, Canada, throughout the century. So it is riot surprising that ou often hear people echoing t i e pragmatist philosophy’s scorn of philosophy. Philosophy deals with the basic nature of existence and with hbw man is to live. The fact that philoso hy deals with such fundamenta P issues makes it more important practically, not less. Nothing could be more practical than to know the basic principles governing everything. If your fundamentals are wrong, you’will find nothing but defeat in all your endeavours. For example, one philosophy holds that power over nature comes from prayer, another holds that it comes from science and technology. Does it make no practical difference which philosophy one accepts? Q: What about a person who doesn’t ha,ve any philosophy at all? A: Everyone has an implicit philosophy of life, whether he is aware of it or not. He has’to make choices about how to live his life, .about what he is basically after in life. Is he going to achieve how own values or pursue the goals that others - family, friends, authority figures - want him to pursue? Is he going to think rationally about all these issues, or is he going to drift‘mindlessly at the mercy of ideaslhe picked up at random without thinking them through? All these, and many more, are philosophical questions to which evpryone has explicit or implicit answers. In fact, every choice you make is based upon some view of what is the good, what is worthwhile, and how to achieve it. So everyone is in fact operating on the basis of a view of what life is for, and that is one part of his philosophy: his ethics. He also has to make assumptions about the basic nature of ,the world and how to gain knowledge - these . assumptions constitute his implicit metaphysics and epistemology. Even those who claim to reject philosophy are making philosophical assumptions all the time only they are doing it unknowingly and without checking the validity of their assumptions.

Ayn cRand. Q: Where do people who don’t study philosophy get their philosophy of life from? A: Most people absorb the philosophical ‘assumptions of their culture without realizing it. They get their ideas from their parents, from their teachers, from their friends, from the literature they read and the movies they see. Because they absorb these ideas and values unknowingly, the never inspect them rationally and they never even consider the possibility that other philosophies are p&sib18 - until perhaps they study history, or visit other societies where _the people have an Bntirely different philosophical outlook. -hen

First, it is unique in that it connects reason to the real world, the world we perceive by means of our senses. There is, in Objectivism, *absolutely no dichotomy between reason and the senses, between theory and practice, or between logic and reality. A second unique aspect concerns ‘the moral meaning of reason. Ayn Rand holds that reason is the key to morality, that essentially to be moral means to be rational; One must guide one’s actions by reason, reason to obtairi knbowledge. Only man, Objectivism acheive happiness.

A: Well, for instance, how many people could define what demoiracy is? Most of them would say that democracy is any political system in which there is voting. But that is a definiti’on by non-essentials, a logical fallacy. Democracy becomes an invalid concept if defined that way. Democracy has to be defined as unlimited majority rule. If you understand that, then you see that pure democracy is incompatible with the rights of the individual. Under a pure democracy, where there ate no limits on the power of the majority, 51 per cent of the people could vote to enslave or kill the other 49 per cent. Is that a moral political system? So when I hear people praising democracy, I know that they don’t understand the meaning of their terms; they don’t have proper definitions, Q: Are you saying that you are against democracy? A: I am saying I am against any form.of tyranny over the individual, and if you have a system where the government can do to the individual whatever it likes as long as a majority votes for it, that is a tyranny. Democracy properly defined is the tyranny of the majority. The broper political system is one of c’omplete arid absolute freedom for the individual, a system in which individual rights are constitutionally guaranteed and cannot be voted away. That’s a constitutional republic, not a democracy. In a republic, people do vote, of course, but only over secondary issues, such as who are to be the personnel of the government, or how to best implement the protection of rights. They’d0 not have the authority in a constitutional republic to vote -the minority into -slavery. The point I was making by bringing up the confusion concerning democracy was an epistemological point: the importance of definitions. If you

don’t know the definitions of the key terms in any field; ot just politics, you can’t thin Ii logitally. You can play with words, but you can’t connect your ideas to reality. You can’t even connect once concept to any other concept in any coherent fashion. The analogy to 0 pereon using concepts without proper definitions would be a person with a bag of tools who couldn’t tell one from the other - sometimes he tries to use a screwdriver as a saw, sometimes be tries to use asaw a hammer. The lack of definitions makes it very difficult for people to follow a philosophic proof. In other words, the basic reason why people are sometime not convinced when you give a rational philosophic argument is that most peopledon’t know how tq think in principles. Q: Isi;l’t that an as ect of the pragmatism you ta Pked about . before? A: Yes. Pragmatism teaches that there are no principles and that even the rules of thumb that substitute for principles don’t exist in any kind of struc+tural.order or hierarchy. Each rule of thumb is like a separate revelation. The only way you &an use principles properly is if you develop them in a hierarchical fashion, starting from observation of reality, so that you can take any principle and see where it comes from and where it leads to. If you can? do that, then you can’t fell-ow proofs; then all you do is dispute .concretes.

(2: Since so many people are ’ pragmatists, or worse, YOU a r8 hainting a bleak picture.-What is the way out for our society? A: The way out is through the minority of people who do think and who are independent. Most people, the great majority of people, do not question their philosophies beyond college age; and even when they are in college, very few question everything down to the root, So the great majority of people are followers philosophically. But it is the small minority who do think about philosophy that determines the direction of philosophy, then the followers follow that: the new direction, So the only way to change the minds of most people is ‘to change the minds of the people they are following, which means change the minds of the intellectual leaders. Now that is worse than bleak in the way I have set it up - it would be just about impossible to change the minds of the current intellectual leasers, since they are so committed to antiObjectivist ideas, such as mysticism, self-sacrifice, and collectivism. But, what can be done, is gradually to build up a new generation of intellectual leaders - what Ayn Rand called a new intellectual - that is, an actual, genuine intellectual+ an intellectual who respects the intellect, So changing the philosophy of a whole culture is a long-term job, and it cannot be done by directly attempting to change the mind of every person out on the street, one by one. It has to be wholesale as I have described. Q: Are you optimistic or pessimistic? A: It depends upon the time frame. I am more optimistic if you drop the question of “how soon?“. I am convinced that eventually . Objectivism, as a pro er philosophy or reason, wil P come to be the dominant philosophy (assuming mankind survives). But that might not be until two or three hundred years in the future, So I .am certain, if you give me time enough, that Objectivism will win auf, for the same reason that one could be certain that the heliocentric theory would win out over the geocentric theory of special creation. Any .rational view, given enough time, since it is true, will defeat any irrational alternative. --

Dr. Binswanger, who received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Columbia University and has taught philosophy for many years at Hunter College in new York City, lectures at 7:30 p.m. in MC 2066. His recent book, The Ayn Rand Lexicon, is a philosophical dictionary of Objectivism.


Your Career. Search Extra-curriculars can be difference Employers are often looking for employees with leadership skills, a high degree of sociability, and the ability to work in a team environment. These and other important job skills may be evaluated on your resume or UCPA form through an examination of your extra-curricular involvement. Clubs, societies, and sports are just a few of the activities which may convince an employer tojnt erview you. loining a club or society tells an organization that you like to participate. Employers want employees who interact well with others and are willing to get involved. Holding an administrative role [for example president, treasurer, etc:)’ displays degrees of leadership, organization, and responsibility. The degree of responsibility you hold as a member of a club or sdciety may indicate you potential as a manager in an organization; therefore, employers are very interested in graduates who have been presidents of societies or other organizations. Participation in competitive sports at almost .any level helps us to deal with a variety of situations. The importance of co-operation, organization, and leadership is vital to success in sporting activities. Along with the social aspects of team sports, leadership qualities are evaluated here as well. The ability to cope with stress is an important factor in many jobs and experience in sports may help us deal with these situations. Managers also want employees that are physically healthy, and sporfs participation &finitely conveys this. Since academic records are often not comparable because of differences in courses, universities, programs etc., employers may look to other ways in comparing job applicants. Your iovolvement outside of academics helps them to compare individuals on other terms. Extra-curricular involvements may be’the determining factor in obtaining an interview when your grades are equal to or below other applicants. So get involved, .

CIA involvem-ent. in C.A. ** causis c.ampus backlash\

BALTIMORE [ISIS) - Unpopular covert activities in Central America are blamed for a backlash against the Central Intelligence Agency on some U.S. university campuses. ’ Over the weekend of March 6, for example, unidentified vandals sprayed “CIA Off Campus” on a building at John’s Hopkins University in Baltimore to protest the CIA’s spring recruitment program on that campus. As recent events at’cither univepsities show, the protest was not anisolated incident. Police arrested five Louisiana - State University students I October ~1 for trying to disrupt the CIA’s attempt to recruit students on their Baton Rouge campus. An all-night vigil involving about 40 students preceded a march to the campus placement office, where police made the arrests. Also, the agency announced October z it would cancel a scheduled visit to the University of Colorado, the scene of vehement anti-CIA protests in recent years. “I understand the CIA’s -decision to cancel the visit was based on its desire to spare the university a continued escalat;i’on ,of confrontation and because it has fewer personnel needs this year,” said CU Vice Chancellor Kay Howe. In early September, the CIA has said it would increase. its campus recruiting nationwide this year.

_ Theatre Ballet $xplqd& 3 I If the Ballet Tazz de,Montreal “sizzled” at the Humanities Theatre a few weeks ago, then this past weekend the Theatre Ballet of Canada exploded. . This innovative and exciting dance* company successfully blended cla$ical ballet, con&m.

porary dance,-theatre, and out-. righf calisthenics, into a physically demanding and- aesthetically thrilling programme. Cohg.e Anime, chore.00 graphed by David Allan, and firmly rooted in classical ballet, is an energetic, ’ anima)ed, denianding piece which draws- attention to the physic&l fitness of the dancers. Unfortunately it was marred by sound problems

and .one particular dancer who <was almost always a little be- hind the others, The black and red, .baggy costumes, worn by male and female, plus the lighting, contributed to the overall success of this piece. Allan’s choreography has been described as contemporary try some critics, ,and 1 agree. I wayld,. however, specify that the “contemporary” refers to ballet, not to the area of contemporary dance. Angular Motion, definitely the most outstanding number of the evening, better suits the “;contemporary” label. The dancers still wore ballet footgear, and t he girls wore skimpy, mockingly feminine tutus, but there all associations with ballet ended. Marc Letourneau’s relentlessly pulsating score and Julie West’s suitably corporeal choreography built mounting tension among spectators and dancers alike. Neither party was given a chance to relax. The . dancers especially were kept going; in constant motion, they performed acrobatics, calisthenics, and spectacular lifts with impressive precision. The movements, consistently mechanical and sharp, were a mockery of today’s physical, fitness- and body-oriented society. The dancers needed a good, long break after that one.

Mondo Comboby Ghrirr Kemp Imprint

staff

I took time out to be entertained October 22 by seven musicians who go by the name Mondo Combo. These profeasional entertainers, fronted by John Hickey, played to a crowd of 20 at the Bombshelter. Surprisingly, the lack of people gave them a chance to get a little crazier. The gig- at the Bombshelter marked a rare occasion for the band to get away from their regular Toronto circuit. Mondo Combo can be found at Solitaires every Sunday night. Hickey draws his influences form the likes of Little Richard, Sam Cooke, and James Brown. In the second set he fought his way

through several James Brown tunes, highlighted by i.Turn Me Loose and Livin’ in America. Seven years ago the band did some recording but, for the period since, have been writing and touring as more or less the same group* The wide range of music we were treated to included some blues tunes patterned with a screaming harmonica and a hot guitar. Tje Jazz selection had some rambling piano synths and some cool sax’ entries and solos. It’s unfortunate that Such a hardworking group can’t attract more than 20 people. Maybe they should crack into the Waterloo market at a lower price (like the ShuffleDemons) and then people would be morewilling to try an altetnative source of music,

We probably should have been better prepared+ accosting 54.40 singer-songwriter Neil Osborne on the second floor of Fed I-Iall and skulking through the kitchen to find a quiet alcove for an interview with no more apparatus in our grubby hands than a’ tape recorder (whose batteries gave up the ghost within two minutes following .the interview). Irrespon’sible stu,dent journalists, sure, but when you’re interviewing as forthright, friendly, and, well, talkative, tis Osborne, a set list of questions would probably be the worst possible plan of attack. But enough about us - tell us about yourself, Neil. What und- of response hay! you got to Show Me so far? Well, last tour I didn’t do any press because I didn’t have anythin to say, because I was wor it ing on this. But now I’ve been doing all the press ao things will get written about us now. T.he press has been really favourable, but it just doesn’t seem that people know it’s out there yet. I mean, we’ve had five or six gigs so far on this tour and we get people coming up to us going, “Wow-, you guys have an album out?” So it takes a while. Last tour we were sort of riding the wave’of the last album and that’s working for us now. On our next tour we’ll probab.ly be riding the ‘wave of this album. The press release said something about some of the songs on Show Me being three year old. Was there just a backlog of songs from. your earlier records? It said that, huh? Yeah, well, 1 talk a lot and I have to live with whatever I say . . . Yeah, a couple of songs are pretty old - we have a backlog of about 25 songs. Most of the songs are within a year old, you know, every day is an older song that was supposed to go on the last record but we just didn’t get it& turn around right. We kinda got it the way we \ wanted it this time. You worked with Dave Jardaa (Rolling Stones) again on this one, but the production isn’t as raw. It’s stili pretty hard, but it’s pretty polished. Is that something you consciously worked on for this album? When you work with a producer, or in Dave’s case, a producer-engineer, you have to come to a sort of trust with him.’ We had more time with this one, so we wanted to change the sou’nd a bit, add a few layers’, &e were just constantly adding stuff to it. You’ve admitted to a profound Neil Young influence, but that seems more obvious musically and lyrically on the new album. Is it becoming more of an infln* ence? Not more of an influence, You see, Neil Young was one of the first people who I really appreciated, the power of it. I was six .or seven and all I would listen to was After The Gold Rush, my older brother had it. I ne’ver learned any of those songs so it’s not an influence in that way, but there’s the whole feel in the way the guy puts across the atmosphere. I mean, Ihave a lot of influences, like The Allman Brothers were m$ main band in junior high school. Everyone else was

And that‘s pretty well the treatment we’ve ‘been getting. Whether they’re gonna get us to do another record or not, we’ll see. (Laughs.) But they’re cool. I‘ve been having a lot of meetings with VPs and they sorta said sorry about the green album because it didn‘t go quite ais well as we expected. They said “We’re not going to put any pressure on you, go in and make the record exactly the way you want, just go in and. have fun and that‘s what we did,“ I guess they‘re really concentrating on the campus market this time. Is that cool with you? That‘s perfect withme. Y’know, we warit to establish something down in the States. It’s a big place. We have California pretty cool, and pockets elsewhere, but there‘s a lot of people and you can play down there one day and be forgotien the next. It’s hurd, but I’m really looking forward to playing there. The new album‘s actually gonna be released all qver the world. Apparently Australia‘s hot on it, so hopefully we’ll find a way to get down there. Record companies don’t pay for that. We’re not gonna do any beer endorsements either. Fuck, endorsements! (Laughs.)

Calling -an LP High Priest would be an act of vile egoism, were it not for the fact’that the album is by Alex Chilton. Through his work with teen stars The Box Tops, seminal rockers Big Star, and most significantly, his solo recordings, he has established himself as one of America’s finest, most idiosyncratic songwriters and has become a h&o to many of The States’ finest performers like R.E.M. and The Replacements. Despite achieving very little personal recognition during his XIyear career, he has continued on his own merry way - always a little out of the mainstream, never Poubting his own worth. His attitude is typified by his response to a question about his lack of commercial success “all my songs sound like hits to me”. He joined The Box Tops as an oily-skinned Is-year-old, and went on to sing on their biggest hits like The Letter, SouI Deep and Cry Like A Baby. Though his blue-eyed-soul voice was all over The Box Tops’ records, there was no evidence of his unique songwriting and musical talents at this point since The Box Tops were essentially a bubblegum act, singing whatever was handed to them by their’producers. His talents weren’t evident until the three LPs with Big Star, the third of which was virtually a solo LP, due to a split up of the group. As the first white group signed to Memphis’ Stax records, Big Star sold very few records, but nonetheless,’ created some sparkling recordings which mated power-pop with an unusual meludicism and an emphasis ‘upon intelligent lyrics. This was a surefire oneLway ticket to obscurity in the progrock dominated early ’70s 1 “What? no songa with watcher intower references”. The third Big Star LP produced some of Alex’s greatest

Garden Bower has not released a clone album or anything of the sort; their music merely fits into this genre. I really like Cmng t y; it is quite airy and spacious: its kind of jugt there, like a found object. What little singing there is is reduced to a mumble-probably for want of a singer-but it comes across ‘well. The singing becomes meshed with the music, like REM’s used to be; Cmng t y is an integrated sounding album in this respect.

gears down a self pitying blues wail to a melancholic IOW song. The spiritual, mystical (or if you prefer, religious) side of Van shows up in songs like The Mystery and Did You Get Healed. Give Me My Rapture, propelled by a soft gospel organ, the only song that specifically mentions “the Lord”, is about the most rocking number on the album. But by no means does Van kick out the jams, Actually the music’ a kind of pop-jazz-Celtic soul sound, seems to be the best setting for Morrison’s current contemplative material and his unique vocal stylings. There is a certain maturity to Poetic Champions. It makes for a change to see a popular musician act his age. Though Van was never a Rock ‘n’ Roll Sex-God, there was always a certain passion in hismusic. It’s still there, but it’s a lot more *focused. Van is wise enough to say what he wants to say with a minimum of effort or distraction. For all his withdrawal or sil’ence in other media, you get the feeling that Van Morrison is right there on this album. Which at this stage of the game is an accomplishment.

: Saturday at the-.Authors Festival, by Trevor Blair Imprint staff Bookstores, supermarkets, and department stores all have a supernatural quality: they represent, in one way or another, the combined energies of a world of efforts. Thousands of products converging at one common place, unwittingly showcasing the achievements of our era. Bookstores in particular shelves of works f,rom around the world, from throughout history, grow to represent a poa’l of world knowltidge. From October 16 to 24, the people behind such literary efforts converged at the 8th annual In’ ternational Festival of Authors, locatti in the Premier Dance Theatre, Queen’s Quay Terminal, Toronto. This festi.val in’chxded more than 40 ‘authors participating in such events as: readings, panel discussions, and interviews. These authors were of vast variety in their origins, representing every continent except Antarctica. Nine days of festivities amidst the celebration of mid term exams, resulted in a conflict of interests; should I skip my exams or ignore the festival? I chose neither and attended both. Sqturday the 17, being the only day I could spare, luckily seemed one of the most interesting days of the festival. The afternoon matinee featured Sir Stephen Spender (England), and the evening showcased: J.O. Ballard (England), Brian Moore (Canada], and Irina Ratushinskaya (USSR).

Brian

Moore

The afternoon show began with the announcement that Arthur Miller would give a reading . at Massey Hail on December 8. Intended topics from the reading included Millers’ notorious marriage to Marylin Monroe and’his associations with Orson Wells, Johp Kennedy, and others. It was then announced that Sir Stephen Spender would be giving a public address. Suddenly, as though a scavenger hunt had just begun, the entire audience evacuated the theatre, leaving a slightly confused Spender and myself on our own. Spender began by apologizing for not being able to invent new reminisces, and therefore resorting to detailing events (old chestnuts, as he called them,) from his autobioAl . graphy. World Within World. Poets and novelists in their Z~S during the end of the ‘2~3, found themselves in a peculiar position; people were looking for wdters after the war, and virtually all of the, writing done then had the common idea of newness to it. Poet Stephen Spender became known as a member of the legendary group referred to as

the Oxford Generation. The assumed movement associated with this group in the ’30s is largely a product of retrospect. Spender recalls W.H. Auden (leader of poets in the ’30s) as being totally. uninterested in movements of any kind. Those touted as leaders of this movement never met until 1957. Auden, much concerned with oppression, sexual and otherwise, believed sore throats to the the result of lie-telling. Spender then speculated on the implications of the fact that Freud died of cancer of the throat! Auden was, however, serious about poetry and literature, and in his oxford’ room suggested the wprld was waiting for great literature from someone. This someone, remarked Spender, turned out to be Auden. T*S. Eliot became the next topic of memory from. Spender’s vaults. The IWatiteland, an aweinspiring poem, spoke of the enigmatic character of. Eliot. This character, in Spenders’ opinion, was the opposite of. what one would expect a poet to be or look like (as opposed to W.B. Yeats - a model for eccentric poets.] It was a gr.eat honour for the Z&year-old Spender to meet Eliot, twice his .-age. This honour did not suppress the di-

of the

first

rect questions Spender forwarded: Did he (Eliot) think The Wasteland was about the end of civilization? Yes, although he would later in his life deny this affirmation. Eliot, also liked childish practical jokes: putting a wet sponge above a slightly opened door, to later have it fall ,on an unsuspecting ‘publisher. Pessimism was Eliots’ trademark, quite unlike the newness Spender and his generation were >recognized for. When asked the legendary question: how will the world end? Eliot replied: Internecine warfare-people killing ohe another in the streets. Drar matic statements such as these were punctuated by the erratic flow of Spenders’ tale telling. Eliot was also highly critical of Thomas Hardy and James Joyce. Spender felt this contempt was largely due to the fact that Joyce didn’t care much for Eliot, As Spender spoke of these historical figures, one by one, they began to appear in the dimly lit theaire. Auderi in the balcony, Eliot near the arches tra, and now Lady Ottoline Morrell, Virginia Woolfe, and W.B. Yeats gathering around the south fire exit. They smiled and nodded to and amongst themselves. Spender, squinting through the bright lights focused on him alone, told

that he would much rather be away from this crowd ,which seemed to regard him as an antique, this crowd that had come to worship the dead through this 78-year-old medium. Ancestor worship? Yes, definitely and deservedly. The evening show began with a reading bf award winning Canadian author Brian Moore. He read from his most recent novel The Colour of Blood The tale told of an unsuccessful attempt made on the life of Cardinal Stephan Ben. This attack hospitalizes him, leaving one of his assailants dead and the other missing. The storyette, although short, was vivid, mysterious and as intriguing as a James Bond film intro. Next, the Russian poet Irina’ Ratu-shinskaya had her works read by Canadian actress Kate Trotter. Each poem was delivered by both women, the English version first, followed by the origin,al in Russian. This method was very effective; Trotter read with compassion, riveting the images into the minds of the audience, then Irina recited from memory the Russian equivalent, providing *an almost hypnotic aural atmosphere to reflect upon her themes of hope in the face of hopelessness.

expanded, suffocating everyone in the first three rows. Amidst the screams .and moans, Ballard, as if on cue began to read from his latest work, The Day of Cream tion. This, the story of a young doctor who creates a huge river in the middle of a desert, is full of the haunting images Ballard is known for. The characters in the story came to life as Ballard read. His very breath distributing ‘life wherever he decreed; shorelines of porno ‘mags and beer cans surged to the twisted dances of ammunition. He claimed his voice not to be in top shape, complaining he had been steered away from alcohol all day. A pitcher of water appeared, allowing him to periodically rejuvenate his throat. The story progressed: the main character stole a car ferry to pursue this mysterious river to its Bource. Ballard let the line out a bit further. Then, satisfied he had hooked the entire audience on his tale, brought the evening to a close.

of Lady Ottolines’ party in which Yeats declared a statue had started talking to him in the poetry of Sophocles. Yeats believed his era to be a political one, to be followed by spiritualism - a world governed by the dead. Spender again speculated that, with the boom of video recording, we may soon become a culture bent on a sort of ancestor worship. This speculation must come easy to a man who has had to grapple, with the reality of being one of the only living testaments of his generation, and therefore, serving as a living record to describe those! who have .gone. Virginia Woolf, a woman “utterly without vulgarity,” possessed a dangerous air behind her cordial and beautiful nature. Spender emphasized this point, implying her great refinement was: “like a razor blade.” Woolf could work herself into a laughing fit describing her friend Ethyl - an 85-year-old wotian who discovered,she had fallen in love with her 80-year-old female neighbour.. Woolf, near tears would then $xplain that Ethyl was lamenting over the fact she had not discovered this love when she was younger - say, 80, for example. Spender revealed Woolfs’ concern with the

l!

physical aspects of writing: how and when it was done, and whether, writing took place just for the sake of writing. Spender confessed he has never been able to answer the latter question. His last tale to tell was a story of confusion. Chris Isherwood, Sally Bowles, a telephone number, a strange criminal, and a one night stand were all elements in an .evening that reminded this reporter of Martin Scorscese’s After Hours. A charming tale from a charming man. The ghosts of the ’30s disappeared into the shadows from whence they came. The crowd returned with their impressive collection of fire hydrants, gypsies, bike’.gang jackets, and livestock, Spender responded to their various questions. He believes idealism will always be with ‘us, like the poor. He believes neu\i ideas exist - look at Reagan - and insists feelings constantly require new expression. He reads everybody, especially Henry James, because he has to give classes on it. The theatre, flooded with applause, prompted Spender to retire to the lobby for an autograph session. Signing my book with an uneasy smile, Spender appeared

Her poetry, seen as a threat to the Soviet regime, resulted in a prison Bentence of seven years hard labour followed by five years of internal exile. Due to medical problems, however, she was released to the west in ‘80 for treatment. Last June, her citizenship was removed due to her allegations concerning Soviet labour camps and the Chernobyl disaster. Despite my att&hment to the nuances of her voice, I couldn’t shake the lingering impression that MrB. Ratushinskaya was emo’tionally severed from her work. Her lack of passion perhaps reflecting her unwillingness to immerse herself ‘in the ghosts of her past, ’ Intermission. Autograph tables, nestled quietly between the bookstore and the bar were the centre of human activity. Irinas’ books had all sold in advance, but some of Moores’ could still be found. Ordering a glass of white wine,‘Moore seemed quite happy and comfortable signing his works. Peodle drank, people talked, people tried to borrow money from eadh other. Intermission drew to a close, and those still able to walk stumbled back to their seats. Before Ballard took the stage, there was a raffle. The prize, an inflatable Winnebago, suddenly

Arriving. at the autograph table, he seated himself comfortably and ordered a beer. He gladly answered questions about the soon to be released Steven Spielberg film based on his previous novel Empire of The Sun (which is getting ready to pounce on your unsuspecting Christmas dollars.) Apparently, he was not terribly involved in the creation of the film,,trusting Spielberg’s talents. I inquired if he had any one thing he would like to project into the minds of Canadian university students. With a smile and a momentary recline, he commanded, “Remain true to your obsessions!” With that and an autograph I was off into the Toronto night. Congratulations go to the people who’ran the festival. The opportunity to meet the authors you read is a priceless and unique experience. Public appearances .by many authors are at best, rare. In fact, this was. the first public reading Moore gave of his new book, and Ballard’s first public reading ever (it was also his first time in Canada in 33 years.] The ticket prices were reasonable, as were the volumes thoughtfully provided at the bookstore. The theatre was small enough to allow an intimate relationship between author and audience, but large enough to accompany ticket demand. Watch for the festival next year, go see Arthur Miller, don’t miss Empire of The Sun, and for those of you feeling haunted by these Halloween times, remember to ‘heed Ballard’s words.

The Pendereck’i String Quartet from Poland performed September 23 to an amiably receptive audience at the K-W Chamber Music Society’s Music Room. This cozy, little concert hall is located at 57 Young St., Waterloo, the borne of philosophy professor Jan Narveson. I arrived 10 minutes early and after picking up my ticket at the “box office”, actually the kitchen table, I climbed a short flight of stairs to the Music Room. I found an empty chair, sat down, and let myself be drawn into the intimate and warm atmqsphere of the “chamber,” Seats filled most of the space not reserved for the music stands and chairs of the musicians. A fireplace adorned ‘the middle of one wall, and recordstands and bookshelves were scattered about, Talk circulated freely and encompassed the lone newcomer. Suddenly through the door strode, . . one after s the other, four well-groomed young men dressed in white shirts and ties and matching black tuxedos with tails. The lights dimmed and they slipped into the everdelicate strains of Mozart’s Quartet in C, K. 465: a crisp, lively piece, precisely and expressively played. A good choice to start a concert.

T.O. gets *Heart by Margie Kaal Imprint staff

c

Toronto had HEART bn October 16. The Wilson sisters and their three male counterparts who make up the long-surviving band played. a pulsating concert at Maple Leaf Gardens that Friday night. The action, if that’s what you can call it, started at 8 p.m. with the opening band. An evening that should have begun with a bang, fizzled out with this mediocre group. However, this all male band, whose name I didn’t even catch (neither did anybody around me - this should clue you in as to how memorable their performance was!] nor care about did little to dampen the spirit in the frenzied crowd of excit ed+Heart fans eagerly anticipating the evening’s main event. At !&I5 p.m., the- 22&pound Ann, in a black dress, white gloves and s”llver sequined boots and her slim sister, Nancy, in black tights, purple mini-skirt and leather jacket made their appearance on stage to the frantic screams of adoring fans. From the hard rock beat of Barracuda, which included a seering .guitar solo, to the soft and sentimental Dreamboat Annie, Heart put on an ‘exciting and divergified sho_w. Some of the highlights of the evening included such favourites as What About Love,

which Ann dedicated to the guys in the audience whom she lovingly referred to as “beasts”, an energetic rendition of Crazy On You, and Nancy, who put away her guitar to sing the soulful lead vocal8 in These Dreams. Ann invited the audience to join in on her favourite, Never, inspiring the entire crowd to forget their inhibitions and belt out the cho,rus. Heart ended the set to the strong beat of 1f Looks Could Kill but the performance did not stop there. Heart returned to the thunderous applause and loud whistles of their whipped-up fans to do the old favourite Magic Man for their first encore and later, for the second encore, the soft ballad Alone: ending the performance with. the hard rock of Led Zeppelin’s Rock’n Roll. The crowd had finally had its fill and filed out of the packed arena with joyful heart8 and burned out BICs whistling their favourite Heart songs. ’ The show was not only plea& rable musically but visually as well due to the elaborate lighting put on by Heart’s technical crew and the energetic stage perforaran+ of the band. It was,definitely an d evening filled with memories of lively rock ‘II’ roll and emotional exhaustion. Ann said it best with “People who like HEART are the best people in the world”. -

.Local rock band is good

by Peter Stathopuloe Imprint st eff

The Little Marthas are four guys who play rock ‘n’ roll music. Two of them are married, the other two are students at Waterloo and three out of four them have beards. But when Martha calls, they come running from thei’r occupations, carrying their guitars, amps, and -drum kit in the back of a pickup truck. It’8 refreshing to see a simple, hardworking bar band that doesn’t take itself too seriously. They aren’t egotistical, careerhunting, commercial musicians. They play for themselves and their friend8 and. whoever else has come out to see them,, but they put a-lot of warmth and desire into their music. John, Pete, Alan, and Randy have been Little Marthas for about five years, playing mostly basements and

bars. They rocked The Bombshelter in the winter of ‘86 and are hoping to play there again very soon. The Marthas would be a great attraction for Rock ‘n’ Roll nights at The Bombshelter, playing much of the 8ame music live that you tiould otherwise hear from the Dj’s booth. They cover 8ome classic tunes from the ‘SOS, and -‘708, as well as a few from the ‘809. Covered are the likes of The ’ Doors, CCR, ZZ Top, The Gsateful Dead, Lynyrd Skynyrd, David Wilcox, as well as their own originals. Ojn October 24, The Little Mar+t& Band played al The Cafe ’ Flo’r$i&Elora. They did four sets from 9 to 1 in the morning. In fact, the owner even asked them. to do a fifth set because of daylight savings time and setting the clocks back anhour, Slightly illegal to extend last call to 2, Mr.

Florx but the band declined his offer anyway, By midnight, the Elora clancefloor was packed with hippies grooving to the sounds of years gone by. Even the toughest-looking customers shimmied their way in and jumped around in their cowboy boots. The Marthas jammed for more than 10 minute8 with, The Allmand Brothers’ Whipping Post and then encored with a .thrashy, bluesy version of The Doors’ Roodhouse Hues. If the hippies on campus want to dance to authentic, live rock ‘n’ roll, then BEnt should bring The Little #Martha Band .to The Bombshelter and continue with its trend of presenting local talenton a regular basis.. The Little Marthas would certainly throw their stuff in the pickup’truck andmotor over to give Waterloo a little bit more rock ‘n’ roll.

Prince!” nods Damien assuredly, “Yeah.” Though The Celibate Rifles have been around in one form or another since late 1978, it wasn’t until 1986 that the group made ” its first ext%nsive tour of the U.S. That trip yielded the Rifles’ only liverecording - the roarin’ Kiss Kiss Bang Bang LP, complete with obligatory renditions of The Only Ones’ City Of Fun and Radio Birdman’s Burned My Eye. For anyone who has seen the group perform, a live, club recording would seem like the obvious route. “For us, it was done more in the tourist vein . + . almost like a postcard,” explains Damien, “something we could look back at and remember. We had played CBGB’s once before and liked it, so we knew ‘it was a good ‘rock room’. There have been times in the past where we’ve had goes at doing a live album but something always fucked up.

It was never intended to be an album though, a four track live EP or somethin’ maybe but it turned out great. Then our bassist (Michael Couvret) and drummer (Phillip jacquet) left and we had to put an album out . . . so there it is.” After going through the. extraordinary difficulties of putting out their third LP, The Turgid Miasma Of Existence, the previous year, the departure of two core members imtiediately following their U.S. tour would have been a death-blow to a lesser and, Not the Rifles, in fact it appears to have strengthened the group.

Lacrcisse team 1-3 by Michael Treaty Imprint staff The Waterloo Lacrosse Club went through the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in the early goings-on of this season’s Play * The first victory of the season -was achieved October 18, against McMaster, with Waterloo winning 1h.l. After the second, quarter, ttii’e score was XI-7 for Waterloo. and this lead was held @th strong defensive play by all team members. Leading the offence was.Brad Hause with five goals, John.Grant, Dan Gerrard and Jim Ctttisibo each contributed two goals. Matt Firth ;ind Gus Liadis each added three assists. The_ victory was _long overdue and w-88 needed to maintain team unity during Oktoberfest.

On October 25, Waterloo came up against arch rival Brock and narrowly lost 15-11. The game was very physical as both teams committed many fouls, Waterloo fought hard to overcome a sixgoal deficit, but found the ball not bouncing their way. Matt Firth had four goals and two assists, Rick Sawicki scored three goals, Gus Liadis assisted on three, and Iain Anderson had one goal. The Waterloo record is now one win and three losses, but the team is looking for victory this’ weekend in HamiItod against ‘Mac. The team wants to beready for the Ontario championships in Toronto on November 7 and 8, Watirloo feels it can defeat the weaker eastern teams like Queen’s, York, Carleton and U of T to make to the final. A victory this weekend set the pace for a championship year.

Winles,s rug by ,Warritws fhished I

* by Peter Brown Imprint staff The rugby Warriors’ seasor ended last Saturday on a rainspaked pitch in the midst .sf s frenzied UWO homecoming. The word of the day was,*mud, and Warriors completed their worst season in living memory with a 6-0 loss to the purple preps. A greater reason to quit would be difficult to find, but these noble Warriors didn’t; the still preserved the essence o P sport: dignit y. In a game made sldppy by low temperatures and plenty of precipitation, neither team found a cofisistent grwve, except for the one that developed at midfield in the form of a mud pii. Waterloo continued to display its recent improvement in getting the ball out of the strums more quickly, and moving it downfield. Unfortunately, mistakes were multiplied by mud, and a number of scoring chances failed to pan out.

Again substituting intensity for size, Waterloo denied the ‘Stanns some ‘Doints on an early serum’ five mitres from black% try-line, and moved the ball to threaten a try themselves. But, celebration was hoon quelled as the Warriors failed to cap off some excellent running with some results. The first half’s only points were a Western penalty kick that set the tone for a truly close struggle. Parity continued in the rest of the game, with both teams g,enersting offensive momentum and then being stopped by passionate defence. At one point, a Western player retrieved the balI from yet another five-metre strum, and plunged over Waterloo’s try-line, on& to be wrapped up and brought down. by Jon Sadleir, whi, prevented him from touching down the bail,, thus saving the try. . Midway through ‘the second half, Blair Falconer lea t in the air to retrieve an errant !I all, and was, ahem, illenallv tackled, so

to spehk. Cries of ‘Chea -shot’ drifted over muddied fie Pd, and the _ team captain remained down for a couple of minutes. As in past weeks, he collected himself and rose to continue play in a more verbal manner than usual. But, his sudden surge of determination was insufficient to pull the Warriors through the mud to some - points. Western added another painful penalty kick to double their lead, and Waterloo couldn’t answer with any scoring of their own. Waterloo finishes a very .disappointing last in t’heir division, with no wins in seven starts. This means that they must be relegated to the second division, with the winner there taking their place. This has not yet been confirmed. The OUAA playoffs begin tomorrow, pitting the formidable Queen’s Golden Gaels against Carleton (Division II winner), and McMaster battles Guelph. Winners in those games would play next week for the provincial crown.

No. 1 Warriors ready for OUAA finals +

by John Gonos Final team selections were made October 24 to determine who would represent Waterloo at this Saturday’s OUAA/OWIAA cross country championships. The selections were made at the Laurier Invitational cross country race, held at Waterloo Park last Saturday, On the Warriors’ side, Sdott McLelland was chosen to the team with Sean McGuinness as the alternate runner. They join Paul Ernst, Nick Cipp, John Carson, Harvey Mitro, Allan Faulds and Kevin Shields, who were previously chosen. Last year, the Warriors p,laced second in the OUAA and finished fourth at the CIAU final held at Western. A top-two finish this year would give the War-

riors a berth in the CIAUs and a trip to Victoria, B.C. Coaches Chris Cane and Don Mills are very optimistic of the team’s chances for reaching the CIAUs. They feel that this year’s team is stronger than last year’s, Also, last year’s undefeated champion, Ottawa, are weaker this year and have been defeated. Chosen to the Athenas squad were Carolyn Anglin, Bonnie Campbell, and Kelly McHale as the alternate. They &join _previously chosen Athenas Jill Francis, Janice Patterson, Lisa Laffradi, Linda Hachey and Marielle Rowan. The Athenas will be competing for the bronze medal, as unless a disaster &curs, U of T and Western will finish first and second.

Wa’rribr offence drops game to Windsor .

by Tom York The University of Windsor doesn’t have a stadium, It has a dinky little playing field with wire-mesh around it and a few exposed bleachers without any kind of building or facilities. The sort of high-school set up one might find in Wawa or Paris, Ontario. But it does have the 5thranked football team in the nation, a team rebuilt this year under coach Musselman, and featuring OUAA kicking recordholder Graehme Flett. A cold, soaking rain fell all last Saturday as the Waterloo War-. riors, who went into the game o far 6, thrashed it out with the

Windsor Lancers+ who entered .the game 4 and 2. The grimly determined Warriors played their best defensive game of the year, holding the Lancers to a single touchdown scored on an affensive series. The lancers picked up another six points on a long run following an intercept ion early in the third quarter. That accounts for 12 of the lancers 24 points. The other 12 came off of Flett’s magic kicking foot. Flett kicked two conversions and three field goals and a safety for half of Windsors 24 points. And, as earlier noted, one of Windsor’s two touchdowns was scored against our offence - on an interception

and a subseouent lonn run. What coach McKifiop said it half-time is indicative of the game: “We just can’t move the ball. But defence are having a hell of a game. Best defensive half we’ve had all year.” The turning poiri‘t of the game came early in the third quarter, whe-n Waterloo quarterback Greg SIannerilli’s short pass was intercepted and run 40 yards for a touchdciwn. This brought the score to 13-O. Waterloo then scored on a series of drives, Mike Ropret catching a screen pass and making an open field run to the Windsor 4 yard-line. Dave Ropert rushed for the-touchdown and Brian Ka-

Warriors split . End out West . 1 . by Mike McGraw Imprint stsff Sure, it’s only October you say, but if the first three exhibition games are any indication, comebacks will be the name of the game for the Waterloo Warriors basketball team. After warditig off a late surge by the K-W Titans two weeks ago at the PAC, the Warriors pulled off two comebacks of their own 4ast week in a pre-season trip to Manitoba. UW returned to eastern ‘Canadti with a win and a loss. Waterloo edged 1987 finalfour finishers Winnipeg Wesmen on Friday night, but ran out of miracles in a Saturday night loss to the Manitoba Bisons. The Warriorssqueaked past the Wesmen, 90436. With 7 minutes remaining, the Warriors found themselves in a deep hole, trailing by 10 points. But thanks to four straight-free throws by Jerry “Muggs y” Nolf i, Waterloo was able to steal this one from the Wesmen. Tom Schneider is quickly establishing himself.as UW’s scoras he canned 23 ing leader, points against Winnipeg. The always gritty Rob Froesechipped in 16, while Nolfi, John Bilawey and Jamie McNeil1 all netted 11, Mike Thomas led the Wesmen with 24. The Wesmen still have four of their seven top plk ders who helped them notch Vl:<terloo’s annual Naismith tournament last November. The Bisons hung on for dear life to oust UW, 89-84. Manitoba held a 51-42 lead at half-time, but the Warriors clawed hack to tie it at 76-76 with 5 mix. ~1 es remaining. This time, howcv 3r, the charity stripe worked against the Warriors. The Bisons won a free throw war in the waning moments to seal a nail-biting victory. .

Manitoba’s attack was spearheaded by All-Canadian candiaate Terry Garrow, who led all scorers with 25 p-pints. The everimproving Bildwey led Waterloo with 19. In a pleasant surprise, the defensive giant McNeil1 popped in 16. Froese helped out with 15. . But all comebacks aside, in each of these three games, Waterloo has been burned for more ,than 50 points in the first half. Citing this, Waterloo coach Don McCrae stressed that UW must improve its defence. “We have to come to grips-with what’s supposed to happen in our own end of the’court.” With regards to his plans to utilize his bulkier front court, McCrae commented, “we’re developing good rebounders, and with a team our size, this has to be a feature.” Yet McCrae admitted that three games is not enough time to judge just exactly what the Warriors wjll do with their big tien. The Warriors visit the Ry& son Rams tonight (Friday), in a game which will Qpen Ryerson’s sparkling new athletic complex. The Rams have a history of being’ a source of dismal basketball in Ontario, yet this is no longer the case. After adding former Toronto all-star Kevin St, Kitts to their line-up last season, the Rams have added another in Trevor Willock. A-lso returning is 6’7” Jamie Voskuil, giving *Ryerson three potential ‘OUAA allstars. Tomorrow night (Saturday), Waterloo fans will get a chance. to see the new Warriors for themselves. The Laurentian Voyageurs, always a force in the weaker UUAA East, wilj tip-off with the Warriors at 8 p.m. in the PAC. Prior to the evening’s main -event, the junior varsity Warriors will play the intramural all-stars at 6 p.m. - * ‘.

Their team spirit will definitely increase their chances of success. It has been an exciting season thanks to all of the teams who participated and there should be some heavy competition in the battle for the playoff championship.
