Homecoming organizers looking for improvements by Mike Brown Imprint daff

Homecoming at Waterloo has a l w a y s lacked something, namely, enthusiastic student participation. Those days of mediocre Homecomings are thankfully. numbered according to co-chairman of the Homecoming committee, Shane Carmichael. "This is the first time we've planned anything this big," Carmichael said in talking about Homecoming 1987. He jokingly predicted "mayhem. absolute mavhem. In this ground-breaking, back to-basics Homecoming weekend, however, there are some mounting concerns and frustrations being voiced by Carmichael and Heather Laundry, co-chairmen of the committee. Laundry's concerns surround the level of student turnout for the weekend. Student support for the Homecomfng events is the essential lneaeum of snacess

or failure for the four day long event. Carmichael is just hoping the Warriors are not eliminated too early from Naismith basketball tournament action. On Wednesday, the frustrations of trying to improve upon Homecoming surfaced for a moment on the faces of the co-chairmen in the cramped Federation of Students' committee room. "Homecoming, if it is to become a success like at other universities, (then) all departments and student organizations have to prioritize it for it to come together as a major event." Carmichael added. "there have been problems convincing some organizations that this is a worthwhile thing to put effort into." On October 4, the Federation of Students assumed the role of coordinating the four Homecoming organizations: the Student Alumni Association. Alumni

Affairs. the Athletic Department, and the Federation of Students. - - --. . .In the future, Carmiclrael said he hopes to centralize Homecoming so there is only one committee. The Federation of Students, who subsidized this Homecoming with $4,000, had to step on a few toes this.year, he said. To the Feds credit this year is the "Roam Around", the Homecoming Fair in the Campus Centre, the pep rally, and the 30th Anniversary program. . One Chairman even hinted at the prospect of bringing footbekl back into the promotion of Homecoming while maintaining the basketball venue a s well as bringing hockey and even rugby into the Homecoming limelight. One side note Imprint sportswriters recommend catching the Warriors in the first round because it is unlikely t h y wiU make it past the second round.

University of Waterloo students this week sent a strong mes sage of dissatisfaction to the Canadian Federation of Studeirts voting overwhelmingly in favour of dropping out of the nationa organization, I$re than 63 per cent of students who voted'said "no" to thiE C in this week's referendum. The "yes" side, which ended uli with 35.1 per cent of the vote, was beaten-out in every faculty, al1 well as at St. Jerome's and Renision colleges and in the co-oi> mai%out. Only 2,121 of the14.514 eli 'blevoters 14.6 per cent turnect out at the polls set up Novemrer 9 and 10.The final tally was'bo' ~ 3 i l ; Bvotes (83.8 percent), "yes" 745 votes (35.1 per cent) s p o i ~ k ~ l o t s27 (1.3 per cent). 'Wokcampaign leader Tim Jackson, chairman of the UW Federe tion of Students' Board of Academic Affairs, said Tuesday thce vote was indicative of Waterloo's unhappiness with the way t he~ CFS operates. "E think students realiz; that CFS doesn't represent Waterla3 and its students," he said. "CFS is now going to have to decide if they want to stay the way they are predominantly smal1 schools or do they want to chenge to lure the bigger schools. Throughout the campaign, Jackson had criticized the CFS for itrB oficies, especially on the issue of weighted voting [giving mem per-schools voting power proportional to their student popula tions). The current policy of one vote per member is cited as IB major factor in the non-involvement of such largeruniversities a8 Queen's and Western. Darren Meister, who led the "yes" campaign,,agreed the issue of weighted voting did lay an important part in the loss. "I believe weightefvoting was the number-one reason forth e that and student apathy about the federal involvement i~n loss educational funding." said Meister. who chaipa the UW Fed1r' Board of External Liai-son. Meister said he was disappointed with both the voter turnou t and the decision made by Waterloo students. "It's disappointing that the cost of a beer is too much for na1tional representation," he said, refarring to the $2 pap student pe r term membership charge that would have been levied. "Bd,wit h a 14 per cent turnout, it's a possibility the other 85 per cent wh0 didn't vote were saying 'we don't have enough information t 0 make a choice'."

Canada thus added $300 million to the economy. This figure represents between 7,200 and 9,500 jobs, Green said. And now, due to increasing fees for international students, this source of job creation is being cut back. If a company employing this many people was threatened with closure, Green said there would be a public uproar and the government would bail the company out. Thus the idea that international students are being subsidized by Canadian taxpayers j unfounded, Greenasaid.

Sem.i-formal caps fund-raising -_. drive

UW’s student villages’ annual fund-raising drive for local charities was capped with a semiformal at the Bingeman Park Ballroom November A crowd of more than 500 Iistened as head table guests Federation of Students President Ted Carlton, Dean Nadon, founding chairman of the Benefit, and Pat Henderson, Freeport Hospital administrator, spoke of the positive contributions UW makes to the Kitchener-Waterloo community and lamented the unfavourable press coverage students habitually receive in the local media. Carlton pointed out that the semi-formal was not the only community event taking place last weekend: St.Jerome’s and Notre Dame’s annual Charity Run was also raising money for a local charity K-W Working Centre and St. Lhn’s Soup Kitchen. Semi-formal co-chairman, Oscar Buset, noted that “C.A.W. (the Canadian Auto Workers] raise $50,000 for the same charity, and they make the hourly news on CHYM - we had no coverage at all.” No representatives of community media were present at the semi-formal, Guest speaker John Sweeney, provincial minister of communit y and social services, delivered a short address stressing the importance of private sector donations to charities. The tendency, 6s said, is to “let the government


take care of it”, Sweeney said “the older generation feels younger people today are self-centered . s . this event tonight disproves that sentiment.” Sweeney also expressed a sense of pride in the villages’ achievement and a feeling that the community is “lucky to have (the university) here.” Sweeney has a special interest in this year’s beneficiary, Freeport Hospital, as the hospital is both in his constituency (KitchenerWilmot) and ministerial portfolio. Benefit organizers estimate between $19,000 and $20,000 will have been raised for Freeport Hospital. once all the money is in. “We had set $20,000 as our goal, and it looks as if we’re going to reach it,” said Buset, adding that he was very happy with this year’s res-ults. This year’s donation .brings the total dollar figure donated by the villages over then past eight years to more than $150,000. The Villages’ Benefit conais ts of a number of fund-raising events and activities orchestrated by the village dons. As guest speaker Dean Nadon pointed out, the villages’ benefit is the largest student-run fundraising activity on campus, The most important activity, in terms of money raised, is the villages’ benefit charity raffle - a raffle of prizes donated by local

businesses. This year’s raffle saw more than 14,000 tickets sold . At $1 per ticket or for $5 “results in a tidy .sum. The villagers deserve the credit for this year’s success, according to Buset, since all villagers are given tickets to sell early in the term and are encouraged to sell via an inter-house raffle ticket challenge. This year’s raffle ticket sales set a new high. “With this support, we couldn’t help but do well,+’ he said. Raffle ticket results page 15


Groups seek compromise hy ‘John Mason Imprint staff


A meeting November between student leaders, Waterloo residents and the city planning department regarding a rezoning proposal was said to be constructive. The meeting was arranged following the presentation of a petition by core-area residents. The petition+ which would limit the number of rooming ‘houses in Waterloo’s central residential district, was presented to city council two weeks ago.

Both sides, student leaders and the concerned residents, agre’ed the community has reached the saturation point and consented to a recommended immediate freeze on further con-’ versions in the area. “It would be a dangerous precedent”, said Lisa Skinner, Federation of Students vicepresident (university affairs], “to agree to this rezoning proposal without other solutions for student housing being offered.” Residents and student leaders agreed to work together with city council in pursuing other options for student rental accomtiodations.

Refugee numbers steadily increasing Ralph Zuljan imprint staff “Our generosity is less than meets the eye,” sags York University professor’ Reg Whitaker of Canada’s immigration policy. The Canadian government iends to be ready to accept refugees from communist countries, he said, but is unwilling to allow entry to the many third world refugees that make up the bulk of today’s claimants. Whitaker, a professor of political science at York+ was at Waterloo November 6 to present a seminar cm his new book Double Standard: Immigration and the Canadian State, The seminar was follotied by a reception sponsored by the Political Science Student Association. Refugees are a “distinctive 20th century phenomena”, he said. And their . numbers are steadily increasing. After World

War I there were four million refugees. Since the end of the. second world war, about 70 million people have become refugees. Right now, about 10 to 14 million people are displaced outside their home states, and another 10 million are refugees within their countries’ boarder. Whitaker identified Africa as having the most serious problem. One of every two refugees are in Africa. Afghanist ati and central America are also in a grave state. He said that the numbers continue to rise. Refugees, said Whitaker, are now a “permanent part” of the world’s political environment, Dealing with refugees has “become a world problem”+ Yet, governments in the west are closing the door to refuge’es as the numbers rise, .because they “shy away” from the “political Qntinued

It both formalized the immigration procedure and implied a recognition of inherent rights on the part of individuals+ whether citizens or not. Such recognition was strengthened by the Charter of Rights and the Supreme Court’s interpretations . which considers, “anyone physically in Canada” to have the rights of a citizen.

W’loo council may fund Arts Centre





k Waterloo Mayor Marjorie Carroll has requested a meeting with UW president Doug Wright to discuss the cancellation of professional theatre at the UW Arts Centre. The Mayor told city council at the November IO meeting, “Right now our priority is the Humanities Theatre. If we’re thinking of funding the arts in any way, maybe that’s where the council should go first .” Alderman Andrew Telegdi had earlier suggested that they consider funding the Arts Centre as well as Kitchener’s Centre in the Square, as was recommended in &recent report prepared by the city’s futures committee task force on culture,



be controlled”, said Whitaker. Whitaker asserted that the cold war - the unfriendly, competitive relationship between the USA. and the USSR - has dominated Canadian refugee policy. He supported this position with examples of our government’s treatment of communist refugees from eastern Europe as compared with that of refugees from Latin America’s right wing dictatorships. The “last great move (of refugees] from communist states” occurred in the eighties with the Vietnamese boat people. Some 75,000 were allowed to enter Canada. Now, the refugees come from “right wing regimes” or countries like India and Sri Lanka. These third world countries are not part of thecold war and the Canadian government has “moved to close the door” on them. In doing so, Whitaker said, Canada is falling in line with other western countries and such action is not out of line with the historical evidence of Canada’s refugee policy. However, the laws the Conservative government introduced to deal with refugees (C55 and C84) are “probably unconstitutional”, said Whitaker. Therefore, the government will not be able to carry out its morally questionable policy, he said.

Canada drawn into suDer Dower struggle ---


- -


- _


by Andrew Rehage Imprint staff The real purpose of the Canadian Armed Forces is to push Canada toward involvement in a global nuclear war, not the protection of the country’s borders, says Ernie Regehr of the Project Ploughshares disarmament group. Regehr, director of Peace and Conflict Studies at Conrad Grebel College, gave a critique November 10 on the federal government’s new white paper on defence, released this past spring. The revamped defence policy could see Canada more involved in Reagan’s proposed Strategic Defence Initiative Star Wars - plan, he said. Tuesday’s lecture, organized by the UW Peace Society at Conrad Grebel College, was a short, informal forum for defence discussion. In his lecture, Regehr said since there is no military threat to Canada, the country’s defence program is geared toward what to do in case of a nuclear war.


The problem of more accessible public transportation for disabled persons is becoming a pressing issue in the KitchenerWaterloo area.’ Advocates for the cause are presently hard at work attempting to create enough awareness of the problem to have the situation altered, George Farrenkoff of the K-W Services for the Disabled says the current situation is “highly inadequate”. The main reason for this is that the Project Lift service does not offer same-day service. Two-week bookings are the norm which greatly inhibits the independence needed to live an integrated lifestyle with society. The Project Lift transit system in K-W has 10 vans serving 1,500 members. Farrenkoff, himself a disabled person, cites various other links to this all-encompassing pro blem. “Employment is a big area, Getting to the job is half the battle . . . and many disabled persons who are unable to drive need the system even more than the general public.” Although there is a cost factor involved in the issue, Farrenkoff wants to make the public aware that “equality in trans ortation is a right guarantee cr by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. . . we are simply stating our rights.”



Ernie Regehr


Canada, being one of the prominent members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), is a global peacekeeper and an arm of the American nuclear warning system, Regehr stressed the point that Canada’s main purpose, in his

view, is that of an early warning system. The country’s radar stations in the far north (distant early warning stations) serve as a red light in case the Soviet Union decides to send nuclear bombers over Canada. At present, if such a situation occurred,

Included in the white paper is the A.D.I. (Air Defence Initiative). Under this plan, not only would Canadian pilots be able to intercept Russian bombers, but Canada could also have nuclear missile installations in the arctic

Other areas affected by the problem also include recreation activities *‘which are generally spontaneous in nature . . . if my friends decide to go to a movie that evening I have no way of getting there.” This also relates to the problem with the current service’s hours of operation: the vehicles are only on the road

the K-W Services for the Disabled office, located downstairs at Waterloo Town Square. The petition will be presented at a transportation forum on November 25, The forum, which takes place at the Victoria Park Pavilion from 7-10 p.m., will be attended by transportation professionals including the commis-

r involved. “‘J Y reductions provided to students and seniors should also be extended to the physically challenged. Currently the cost involved is the same as the general public. Monthly passes are also not offered to disabled persons, a situation Farrenkoff would like to see changed.

with the present radar stations, said Regehr. “This would compliment Star Wars. Star Wars would be the ceiling through which no ICBMs could penetrate and A,D,!. would close the windows and door from attack. The only thing left is the sea.” With the sea comes another worry. The USSR has a vast fleet of nuclear-powered submarines that could easily slip under our Canada’s early warning system and fire missiles, he said. Canada currently has nuclear-powered submarines patrolling the northern seaways to protect Canadian sovereignty. “They could easily be used to launch a counterattack against Russian subs, striking Russia’s submarine ports, That’s why they’re nick named ‘killer-subs’,” Regehr said of the potential uses of Canada’s navy. It is quite obvious that America would like to see more participation from Canada, he said, and under the present aggressive,. conservative government, Canada could very well move toward a greater involvement in military escaiat ion.

This is a plan heavily supported by the war hawks in the oval office. “The new white paper hints at an escalation of Canada& warning system and we will intercept air attacks. This is a great destabilization of the present system as it would give the U.S. more invitation for a first strike.”

IRA on the.outs In the wake of this horrible bombing that the IRA. is responsible for I would like to relate conversation I had recently. I was taking the train back from Toronto on a Friday evening and while I was waiting in line I struck up a conversation with an elderly gentleman who was standing next to me. He was an old man, with white hair and had thick glasses: when he spoke he he was very quiet. It turned out that he was from Belfast in Northern Ireland and was here on a holiday. We talked about Ireland and he told me all the places I should visit. I asked him about the problems with the Catholics and Protestants, as well as the popular opinion of the I.R.A. in Northern Ireland. He got all quiet for a minute and then told me how, when his wife was still alive, when they used to go walking he carried one of his golf clubs (a nine iron I think) to protect themselves from the hooligans that would cause all the problems, throw the fire bombs and rocks at the British and such. He said that it is mostly the young teens that did this for the kicks, Nobody considered the I.R.A. as being serious in that they could ‘change the government this way. He said that the men involved just needed something to make them feel powerful and that they have no real support at all, they just wantto play with their guns and make a lot of noise. This story came back to me when I was reading the paper about this bombing - all the mourners, both Catholic and Protestant, who lost someone in this attempt to knock off a couple more British soldiers; they are all probably thinking the same thing, This blast that killed 11 and injured 63 is probably sounding the end of this group of half-baked terrorists who, through this act, have shown their true selves As well, this incident has shown just what the citizens of Ireland really think about this terrorist blight on their country. I.R.A., .your days are numbered, and good riddance!

RememberRemembrance I


Day !

Remembrance Day just doesn’t rate anymore. Guess what went on Wednesday at the University of Waterloo to mark the day committed to the memory of our war dead. Well, there was a seminar on “Chemical Teterogeneity of Block Copolynmers;” there was a talk on “making computers easier to run;” a physicist gave alecture on new experimental materials; and a former UW dean gave a lecture ‘on “The What and How of Differential Fees.” Admittedly, the UW News Bureau Gas caught completely unprepared by forgetting to merely include a mention of Remembrance Day in its weekly circulated news agenda. Imprint made the same oversight last week; an article would have been appropriate before the event not after it. unless you work for the government -yet, No longer is there a holiday on Remembrance Day -, holiday or no holiday Canadians who sacrificed their lives, lost their limbs and experienced the ‘. agonizing hell of combat deserve thanks on Remembrance Day. From young urban professionals to punk ro.ckers, Canadians today owe thanks to the veterans who fbught for the cushy lives that most of us lead today. Mike


For those who did not read the letter, Brian Lau, a UW students, was expressing his frustration with CECS. Much to the misunderstanding of some readers, Brian was not complaining about the lack of hand-holding that one finds within the co-op process, he was expressing his frustration in dealing with the automaton-like response one usually runs into when cogs in the co-op wheel get clogged. He is asking that a small bit of compassion be shown for a student who finds him ore herself lost in the bureaucracy of the process, Brian is quite rights to complain and complain. loudly. This term, every co-op s&dent paid $250 for the services CECS provides. Yet, in this age of.cost accountability, students are the least informed about where their money goes. And now there is news that the co-op fee will increase to $325 in the near future, with no justification of increase in services provided. . Students cannot be treated like machines. The mistake that CECS made was to treat Brian

Lau like an inconvenience, rather than a student with a problem. Each student feels important and significant; CECS should not be allowed to take away that individuality. Like the co-operative edugation system, students make mistakes. We run out of resumes, sometimes we are late for an interview, and we may not get our reports in on time. However, unlike students such as Brian Lau, CECS has shown an unwillingness to take responsibility for its mistakes. Should we, as students, accept an increase in cost while CEC-S continues to shun its responsibility to be accountable? Co-operative education is good and some of the people providing the co-op services are also good, However, there are also some weak links in the system. Case in point - Brian Lau and the lack of communication he endured. There are several groups on campus interested in improving co-op. However, we, like Brian La& are making our voices heard and we encourage everyone else who has had a problem with CECS to do the same, Co-op students are not children asking to be led around by the hand; we are adults dissatisfied with an expensive service. Let co-op know that you are out there. Make your voices heard. Deun Van Doleweerd

A P&+n’s Perspective On Works m I


<by 8ob Horton “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation onrock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.” - Luke 0:46-49

“For it ts by grace you have been eavei, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.” - Ephesians 2:8-g God tells us through His word, that our works, or the things we try and do to please Him that we do on our own initiative, are not what will save us and allow us to spend eternity with Him. Yet, the Bible says that if we do not put God’s word into ractice, we will be building our house without a foundation, wit R out Him as our foundation, and it will collapse to the ground when the torrent comes. How then can we resolve this apparent dilemma? Do these I 4 two passages really disagree? To this I reply a resounding No! For we are taking these two passages without taking the rest of the Bible into account. If we look at passages like James 226, this passage says “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” What is being said is that our faith in God has given us the right and the privilege to be called children of God, yet if we do not continue to practice survive?

It is unfortunate that you have singled out a specific microcomputer. There are many microcomputers on the market today. Even the cheapest will perform the same applications as a basic IBM-clone, We are not saying that IBM-clones are incapable machines. We are saying that IBM-clones are not the only machines worth considering when making a purchase. You could have introduced students to the Amiga, the Macintosh and the Atari ST to name a few, With a little more research you could have turned students into truly informed consumers.

Do not iudae me -




by Chris Gerrard Imprint staff

(a pseudonym)

I am about to digress from the main theme of this cdumn [being gay issues and re-lated subjects]. I am also about to change my of writing a little, moving away from gentle persuasion, and etting up on my soapbox: I have read in thio. paper over the past Pittle while, things that I find distressing both ak a.humti&arian, and as a Christian. Of course, these things are not convictions held by just the writers of various letters to the editor and other sections, but are unfortunately, I think, held by ,a number of persons in’aociety [read partkukrl we*,1 tu&k$., As well, I would like t6 point Out t x &f’ S&%&6 cy‘A F%grim’a Perspective”) does not have a monopoly oli Christian theology, just as the Vatican does not, and that Cindy Long (Soapbox, Imprint, Oct. 9) is not the only individual “concerned” for the welfare of her brethren on the planet. I too consider myself to be somewhat knowledgeable in Christian doctrine. I also care for my fellow man in, I believe, no less a way than anyone else. My Christian background began with a “fundamentalist’” church - Missionary Alliance - where I learned not only a great deal about the contents of scripture, but also a great deal about what I will term “Literalism” and some of the unsound wherefores put forth for numerous concepts, one of them being the absolute sinfulness of same-sex relations, another being that there is some absolute set of rules that will guarantee entrance into God’s kingdom {if indeed there is such a thing). Upon entering university, I began investigating other religions and eventually choge Catholicism as the one that best suited me. That does not mean that I agree whole-heartedly with everything fits that ‘“the church” espouses - it just means that Catholicism the best for me. Since then I have continued to investigate my faith and have tried to understand what it is that I call “faith”. “Why is he telling me this?” you ask. I want to point out that I am not speaking “off the cuff” about what I believe, and that my theological -opinion is, I think, just as valid as anyone else’s Enough of the preamble. Now to the meat of this column. Like it or not folks, we are all part of the same family. We are all brothers and sisters, regardless of race, sex, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, social class, or anything else. If you belong to the species homo sapiens, you are part of our global family. There is no “them” and “us” - it is only “us”. That goes pretty well no matter what your religion or faith is. Particularly, as Christians, no one elf us is any better than another (that is made very clear in scripttire], and no one is in Q position to pass judgment on any one else. Christ ggve us two commandments: Love God, and Love each other. Ahd that each other meant everyone, without requiring that individual to conform to your way of living or thinking. That love is unconditional. How can you possibly stand there and tell me that I am sinning by loving someone else? You are telling me that what God Him/Her/Itself sanctioned and glorified is evil. And to carry the popular argument further that it is not really love but evil lust that I feel, I would ask you, just how do you know what I feel’? Have you been in my shoes? Do you kqow me so well as to know how my mind works better than I do? I could be very petty and counter with, !‘Well, then, I think thst all you feel toward your (heterosexual) partner is mere1 lust, snd therefore you are sinning just as badly as I.” But I wi r 1 not, because I do not know what y6u feel. Only you know, and God knows, just (IS only I know and God knows how I feel. Please do not be so pious as to assume that you know what is best for the world. You only know what is best for you, and only for this moment in-time. Religion, and Faith, are very personal things, that each of us must come to terms with of our own accord. I resent being told’that that which I am doing, which in no way hurts anyone in and of itself, is inherently wrong. Just what is the basis of your belief? Are you so learned and experienced to unequivocally state the trueness of your “facts”? Where is the rigorous proof of your hypothesis? Instead of attempting to force everyone in the woild to do and live according to one individual’s paradigm, perhaps we should be showing a little bit more genuine care for our fellows who are destitute, and who want and actually need our help. Whether one is Christian, or Muslim, or Buddhist, or whatever, I believe that we all have a charge to raise the level of well-being of others. And, not to be trite, as the old saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink.” Before attempting to change the world to a particular ideology, I believe one should be style

very sure that that ideology is sound. I believe the ideology of “Love” is sound - really, the only sound one that there is. I think Josee Duffhues (Letters, Imprint, Oct.23) put it all very well. I will get off my soapbox now and humbly ask the forgiveness of

Evolutiori relies as ‘much - YITs, not geeks, are on faith as Creationism plaguing Waterloo To the editor, Two human dispositions are accepted today: Men are living souls or living matter, The former is based on the ludaic-Christian belief that man was created in the image of God by animating the human body with an immortal’ spirit: the latter stems from a physical humanism which holds that all life is material only. A living soul perceives the material world through .the physical senses and understands things spiritually through thought, faith, free will, etc. Since the spiritual world is nonmaterial and thus invisible fqr men, it is open to doubt. Faith in God, however, who is Spirit, and His Son’ in the flesh, fesus, creates peace in the heart which material comfort and human security cannot provide. The doctrine of physical humanism (that human beings are living matter only) involves risk and uncertainty because human knowledge is limited, contradictory, and often utopian. In ad&ion, men are totally ignorant of the extent and consequences of the unknowns. The ideology of physical humanism is based on materiel science and evolution which postulat,es that things have developedcontinually in an arrangeable order over immense time spans. Physical science provides a systematic know how through mathematics and measurements. But men are capable of inventing novel mathematical systems and also techniques to measure as-yet unknown things. The constitution of today’s theoretical physics is randomly uncertain for paradoxes have been resolved mathemat itally by probability formalisms. Evolutionary continuance can-

not be observed for heavenly bodies, but relativistic science has generated for astrophysics a mathematically immense past which, in my opinion, is utopian. For example, the billions of years of cosmogonic ages and also of light years of cosmological spaces follow from the uniformity assump‘tion that a constant speed and composition of light gersisted throughout these ages and spaces. The cosmos thus generated is imaginary for its uniform vastness can never be verified - neither can its existence nor its evolutionary nature. The vast radioactive dates which are selected for the socalled earth’s history depend on the postulate that an amount of radidactive matter in rocks is convertible to time. However, if all uranium 238 which exists in the earth’s crust, for example, would be used for the da(ting, including the uranium ores, I believe that the dates would be as random as the

To the editor,

The University of Waterloo is a strange place. It is large and reasonably well-funded, as well as having a considerable student population. Nevertheless, I ca&ot stifle the perception that a disproportionate number of the activities of this university are oriented around the ambitions of that large majority of students which I would call YITs (Yuppies-InTraining]. Linda Frum was mistaken: UW does not suffer from an overabundance of geeks. Rather, most of the students are intent on a life which will consist of BMWs (alternating with Audis every second year), cellulajr phones and DINK-status

(double income no kids]. Most students are no longer concerned with cultural history, philosophical issues, political,p

This is a ridiculous accusation. If the political right leans toward economics, industry and financial security, surely it is the political left, with its social programs, Crown corporations and unions, which is better equipped to end political injustice. I challenge the students of this university to seriously consider the implications of U.S. protectionism. the Reagan administra-

tion’s foreign policies, stock market instabilities and cultural sovereignty before jumping recklessly onto the Objectivist bandwagon. Further, make an attempt to get involved in the (horrors!] extracurricular events of this university and surrounding area. Although the UW Arts Centre is soon to close its doors forever, there still exists a number of entertaining and thought-provoking.lectures, films, dramas+ concerts, exhibits, Bhows, debates, journals and referendums which can intermittently break the mq-

CFS info useless to co-opers To the editor,

of pressured students, their bladders overflowing. Undoubtedly, there will be line ups for the washrooms surpassing those seen each term at the bookstore during the first week of classes. Then the shit will hit the fan!

As a Co-op student, I was both pleased and disappointed by the recent CFS voting package I received. The opportunity to voice my opinion on a matter such as joining the Canadian Federation of Students is important to me. The package I received however, prevented me from voting. Instead of being presented with unbiased information on which to base a decision, I received propaganda. The package contained two pieces of information, one from the CFS and one from the UW Feds. The CFS greatly extolled the benefits of joining. It promised services, OSAP relief and power on Parliament Hill. Much along the lines of what I expected. My Federation of Students asked me if I would dare say yes when my peers at Queen’s and Western said NO. I was told that Scott Forrest and Ian Mitchell said NO. And I was told that the CFS was a socialist movement that hated the situation in El Salvador, wanted out of NATO and loved the CLC. Under these conditions my vote was not yes or no to the CFS, but rather yes or no to the socialism that my peers have rejected. It is not the role or place of the UW Feds to decide or dictate what is best for the students, but to provide a referendum based on the most objective information possible. The Feds shot down the CFS but they did nothing to offer an alternative method of getting our voices heard. The Federation of Students has done me no favour by letting me vote, it has taken advantage of my isolation from any other sources of information or debate in order to coerce me into supporting its views. If Co-op students are to vote, they must be provided with as much information as possible in order to consider and weigh the biases presented and cast an educated, careful vote.

Cramped in the toilets To the editor, In the four years I have been here the campus has undergone several necessary changes. Most recently, was the transfer of the EMS library to the Davis Centre. This migration resolved the problem of insufficient space. The new ‘EMS’ library, as I prefer to call it since there are no retired politicians that go by this name, is quite roomy and pleasant. I realize that there will probably be further alterations to the existing layout, however the one I’d most like to see concerns the washroom facilities. This is unquestionably the most poorly thought out water closet design I have ever relieved myself in. There are two men’s washrooms at each end of the library, with each room housing a sink and a toilet. When a patron steps in, he locks the door. Therefore at any one time only four men can be relieving themselves under the roof of this library. I assume, since I’ve never had the nerve to get a firsthand look, that the situation is similar for the women’s washrooms. When exam time comes, and it always does, the library will be filled

Dr. Harry


Objectivism To the editor, Dr. Harry Binswanger lectured to a group of UW students on the November 3. In a great show of salesmanship, Binswanger worked to swing his audience over to accept the absolute value of Ayn Rand’s Objectivist theory of reason and ethics as the ultimate means of determining absolute truths in the world of reality. In an overzealous attempt to rid humankind of the age-old preoccupation with those ever-present “grey areas” inherent in analyzing and dealing with the complex realities and ethics of human existence, Binswanger attacked the theories of the great thinkers of the past - Plato, Marx, Freud, Aristotle (in part) - presenting some of their tenets in fragmented blips, completely out of context. That Binswanger managed to distort these theories beyond recognition was of no concern to his line of



is highlysimplistic& The following are some highlights of Binswanger’s brand of reasoning and ethics: Plato was a collectivist and rhc father of totalitarianism; Today’s humanists are our enemies; The first loyalty is to the self and not to the collective: the prime virtue is selfishness. Reasdn, he proclaimed, is the basic tool- for realizing this “moral” imperative; Binsianger advised thbse engineering student who hold a Christian world view to go into the priesthood on the grounds that they would be hypocrites to the engineering profession;

tloned whether Binswanger believed in absolute truths. He affirmed, citing Darwin’s theory as an example. He told the audience about a conversation that he had with a group of biologists who argued that there is not 100 per cent certainty in any theor otherwise - on ory - Darwin’s the grounds that out knowledge about world of reality is dialectical and subject to change.

Trade and the .environment

While industry, labour and the three federal political parties battle over free trade, the usually vocal environment movement has been very quiet. Why? The most probable reason is that environmentalists are use to working on their own specific issues and free trade transcends all environmental boundaries. It is also not an easy issue to gather all the facts on. That didn’t happen, though.

Well it means that for E I I the most part, we have had a number of businessmen possibly operating by a narrow definition of the environment, conducting Canada’s free trade negotiations. And we have had no review process for monitoring true environmental impact. Also missing is a clear consensus of what is really up for grabs under a free trade deal. We all know that free’ trade means much more than just by Peter Stubley the buying and selling of widgets and auto parts. According to Brian Mulroney, social, cultural, and I went r&k climbing with my brother last week.

Also the Ontario program to control acid rain emissions (and provide subsidies for control of acid rain) could be interpreted by the Americans as giving Canadian smelters an unfair advantage. According to some environmentalists, the situation with NTB’s has not been satisfactorily sorted out yet by government. Things could also work in revers& Because of the deregulatory atmosphere in the United States, Canadians may have a tougher time competing on par with the US. As a result companies will be looking to streamline their operations. Because environmental policies inevitably affect comparative advantage by increasing costs, they may be the first to go. Comparative advantage means that countries specialize in goods they can make best/cheapest. In fact, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce has already suggested that Ontario might have to relax tough new legislation (ie. acid rain) to help local businesses compete. This doctrine of comparative.advantage may also lead to ruthless development of Canahian resources like minerals, because Canada has always been a staples producer. This could mean irrevocable damage to the environment. Energy sources like Canadian gas and oil may also be exploited to the limit in order to supply the American market, This may endanger long-term Canadian supply. It is also not impossible to conceive of Ontario Hydro building more nuclear power plants in order-to export energy to the United States, Regardless of the scenario, the free trade deal’appears to offer the U.S. free and open access to Canadian energy supplies. Water has also been talked about in regards to a free trade deal. Canada’s chief negotiator Simon Reisman has been a central character in a scheme to turn James Bay into a freshwater reservoir. The scheme entails building a sea level dike across the mouth of James Bay in order to divert its water into the Great Lakes where it can be sold to the United States, There have been few references to the resulting impact such a diversion would have on local wildlife habitat and ecosystems and on the livelihood of the 10,000 native people who derive their living directly from James Bay, Reisman has been a strong advocate of using Canadian water as a bargaining chip at the free trade table. Reisman has said, “I think they (the Americans] would go crazy for the idea”. It has also been proposed that ye use water exports as a means to gain an agreement with the United States on acid rain controls. The recent announcement by McMillan that large water diversion projects will not be acceptable to Canada does little to alleviate fears. According to Professor Frank Tester (University of Toronto) “without legislation to.back up the policy, it is useless”. Clearly then at this stage in the game we have more questions than answers, There is little consensus among environment alist s regarding the free trade issue although there is growing concern that the free trade agreement may have a detrimental






More research must be done on the environmental impacts of the free trade deal before any final decision is made. As well there must be greater public consultation. For more information on the free trade issue visit the WPIRG office in the General Service Complex room 123 or phone 884-9020.

Market crash may be tough/on by John Mason On Monday, Oct. l&1987, the major stock markets of the world crashed. In the ensuing uncertainty, instant experts have inundated the media with their pat answers. All the clamor has left many young people saying, “This does not affect me. I won’t worry about it.” Is that the case? As UW students does the crash have any effect on us? 1 say yes, possibly a serious impact. If you hold stocks, RRSP’s or mutual funds, the effects are clear but few students do. Our premier concern is whether the market plunge will bring on a recession. If there is a recession, co-op students and graduates looking for jobs will be hit hardest. As the economy slumps in recession, hiring will be curtailed if not axed altogether. Graduates looking for permanent employ-

Computer \by Bob Horton. Imprint staff UW’s Computer Science Club played host November 4 to a number of guests from major microcomputer firms. Representatives from Apple, Atari and Commodore participated with students and faculty in a panel discussion on Computers in Education. During the day, 68000-based microcomputers from Atari and Commodore were displayed for students and staff to examine. At 7 p.m., the representatives from the various firms came, along with Prof. F. Burkowski, Prof. J.P. Black, and Erick Engelke from the Watstar development team to sit on a panel to discuss “Computers in Education”. It was unfortunate that the topic that was eventually chosen for the night was so broadly based as the night did not seem to have a very clear focus as a result. Jim Boritz, president of the Computer Science club this term, said that this was a result of Commodore’s reluctance to do a presentation of the current developments within each company and the directions each company was taking. Commodore’s representative said the company who spoke last would win in such a presentation and they would not be willing to participate if such was the format. The evening came as an offshoot of similar events that the Computer Science Club (CSC) has sponsored in the past called “The 68000 Wars”, where members of the club would present their 68000-based micro and debate the qualities of their machine against others who have different machines. Boritz said the CSC hoped to get a better idea of where the various cornpanies were going and the deveIopments that they hoped to make with their new products through the evening. The Computer Science Club is . trying to raise its profile again on campus by sponsoring more events of this nature than they have in the recent past. Boritz stated membershi in the club has improved an ir this has allowed more of this kind of activ4ty. When asked what the prjmary oaI of the Computer Science C &ub was Borite replied:

ment will find the opportunities greatly reduced. Co-op jobs will not be hit as hard or as quickly. The short term commitment and lower wages will remain attractive solutions to industries’ personnel problems. Should a recession be prolonged though, the impact on co-op jobs would grow. Students face another,problem during a recession. If you are unable to find a job in your field upon graduation, you will settle for any decent job. When the upturn arrives, employers tend to prefer a fresh graduate than the individual who has stagnated in a nonapplicable job because there were no job openings previously. But will there be a recession? Since economies move in cycles, eventually there will be a recession. The question is whether the market crash will force one in 1988 or whether it can be held off to 1989 or 1990.

Canada has been in a period of continuous economic growth since 1982 but the market collapse in itself can not bring on a recession even though it does seem time for the expansionary cycle to end. The stock market has a psychological effect on the consumer. If a pessimistic attitude is adopted, then spending is curtailed and a recession will hit. World leaders, for this reason, have been attempting to rebuild shaken confidence with pronouncements of the health of their economies. Business raises long term capital, needed for expansion, through the stock market. When stocks fall it becomes more. difficult to raise that necessary capital. In concerted action immediately following the plunge, the western nation‘s central banks reduced their interest rates, therefore making long-term bonds less attractive. This will

Drop by any time .But the undergraduate situa(no experience necessary) tion is hardly today than it was 13 years ago. Cheating remains widespread at Homewood, and the ethics board is viewed as


inefficient at dealing with it. “Sadly, I don’t think we’re very effective,” admits Hannan on the performance of the board, which suffers from the same anonymity as its ill-fated ancestor, the honour commission. “I would say that about 15 per cent of all cheating cases are caught, and the ones that come before us are really blatant.” Often, students aren’t aware that they are cheating, says Hannan. Apart from obvious cheating looking at another student’s exam, or plagiarizing material for a paper - using tests that are not on reserve in the library, or studying from old blue books or papers, “anything rthat gives you an unfair advantage over another student,” con!3fitutes cheating, Hannan explains. Only one case of cheating has been detected since September, and a scant 15 to 20 are reported per year. The most cursory glance around the library or an intro Chemistry lab will reveal more than 15 or 20 students


In the system that replaced the honour code, responsibility for the conduct of exams was placed with individual faculty members, while students would be responsible for making the faculty aware of cheating. “The problem with the honour system is the unwillingness to turn in cheattirs,” said the chairman of the panel charged with evaluating the original honour code. “This poses a conflict to students - loyalty to their fellow student and loyalty to the honour system. “But certainly there is no conflict in simply telling a professor that there is a cheating problem,” he added. Shifting partial responsibility to the faculty for enforcing student ethics, however, has done little to alleviate the problem. Most students are unwilling report cheating to a professor, and the bulk of cheating, borrowing a friend’s old test, etc., occurs outside of the classroom, away from faculty control. Many students feel that the faculty is also partly responsible for the atmosphere of “intense academic competition” at Hopkins which fosters cheating. “You’re graded on what you get, not how you got it,” comments Hannan. Grading curves are also blamed for pressuring students into comparing themselves with other students and into cheating as a means of getting ahead. “Curves breed competition,” Hannan remarks. A consensus is emerging that undergraduate attitudes concerning cheating -that cheating is expected and tolerated - must be addressed before an honour code can be brought into effect. Hannan is optimistic, however, that “we can implement an effective honour system here in the coming years.” Hannan said he would like to see a process “where students are aware of the ethics board and the honour system here from the time they apply.” This process should be reinforced by orientation, he adds. “The advantages of an honour code would be numerous,” states the Human Climate Task Force Report, pointing out that while honour at Hopkins depends on undergraduates, active discussion of the honour code may help change those attitudes for the better, A student honour system would be a “point of pride” for students+ the report continues, much as orientation and spring fair are. However, everyone agrees that students must take an active role.

Lewis - one of my greatest heroes -, was literally dragged kicking and screaming into the Kingdom by the weight of evidence for Christian truth”. Among his many accomplishments, Montgomery has participated in several historic public

debates with well-known individuals, including Bishop James Pike and situation-ethicist Joseph Fletcher. His recent writings include Human Rights and Human Dignity, and History and Christianity. Montgomery’s lectures will be the ninth in the series on Christianity and the university. The Pascal Lectures were established by members ,of the University of Waterloo to create a forum for Christian issues in an academic environment. Past speakers have included the renowned British jo*urnalist Malcolm Muggeridge, who inaugurated the lectures in 1978, and Madeleine L’Engle, author of A Wrinkle in Time, who spoke in 1984.

UW hosts debating tourney This weekend the UW House of Debates club will be hosting the 1987-88 Canadian National Debating Championships. Sixty teams from across Canada will be participating in this event, which will determine the university debating champions. This is the first time the University of Waterloo has held the Nationals. Our location in Central Canada has attracted schools from coast to coast, and this tournament is by far, the largest in recent memory. The debating itself will take place on campus from November 13 to November 15. The debates are all in the parliamentary style, which means the debates mimic that of the House of Commons. A “Speaker of the House” presides over all proceedings and presents the teams with resolutions to be debated. The Government team, which argues the affirmative, consists of the “Prime Minister” and the “Minister of the Crown”, and must define what the resolution means. The opposing team, or Opposition, consisting of a “member” and “leader of the Opposition”, argues against the Government. The winners are determined by a panel of judges. One of the most interesting facets of debating is to see how the Government team interprets the definition of a resolution. It is a rare occurrence when different teams define a, resolution in the same way, and imaginative and twisted definitions often occur. Debaters will also participate in a public-speaking category.

Jon Dellandrea, vice-president (university development), said the ADF fulfills an important function within the total development plans of the university. “The University of Waterloo’s reputaiion has been built on its , spirit of innovation and its camtiitment to protecting an aca- I demic climate in which good ideas have an opportunity for development,” Dellandrea said. “Without the flexibility provided by the supporters of the Academic Development Fund, the university’s ability to fund innovation would be severely hampered. We also believe that the ultimate beneficiaries of Waterloo’s teaching and research activities will be Canadian business and industry and _ society in general,” he said. The ADF report, compiled by Tom Brzustowski, former vicepresident academic, notes that while the support given to the 20 programs and projects through ADF was relatively slight, less than one fifth of one perscent of the university budget - this amount “is exerting tremendous leverage because the faculty and staff at Waterloo are generally prepared ti innovate and to take on new challenges as overload, if some help can be provided with the direct costs of the new activities.: “What the list does not show is the large number of good proposals what could not be funded because money was lacking in the ADF. “The university has been committed for a long time to the principle of the ADF and to maintaining that fund large enough to have a strategic impact. It remains committed to both. . . . “As a result, the University has made the ADF the focus of its appeal to many organizations and individuals. Their contributions combine into a fund which has the potential to have a major influence on the quality and direction of the University of Waterloo.”

weathermen rock: McCormack tight-lipped. by Bridg& Mokmsy and Stephnaia Kuxdorf Imprint staff Guelph-Erased band the weathermen were the main attraction November 5 upstairs at the Huether Hate1 [formerly the Kent). The event, sponsored .by St. Jerome’s College and the English Society, was to have seen St. ferome’s prof and acclaimed writer Eric McCormack give a reading as well, but, unfortunately, he disappointed his fans when he just dropped in without reading. St. Jerome’s own infamous Stan Fogel hosted the event and suggested an “Eric McCortiack read-alike contest”, for which there were no takers [guess he’s just irreplaceable]. It was a successful evening that began with a local musici‘an/writer, The Beggar (lead singer of Torso Column) who was AL- -.-----I 11!--I -!- -1 me warm-up __- acr. ms ormnar compositions were difficult to understand and he was not very well received by the crowd, One of his works, performed in a hard-core Neil Young style, was a down-home Nor& American tragedy “about a guy who shouldn’t be doing what he does”; a “fuckhead” who works

for a guy he doesn’t like and who’s guiag to get money from.a loan and “ on his family.” Another of his works contained the advice that “large dogs need real meat”, which led one member of the audience to remark, “I hate-starving artists.” At around 1~0, the weathermen appeared on stage to a large, enthusiastic crowd. This prom-, ising local talent is comprised of UW’s own Seth Matson, lead singer/guitarist, and guitarist Ian Grant, and U of Guelph’s rhythm combo, bassist Doug Watt and drummer Marty C&s.

How~~cool can one bandbe by Robert Cllmmin;i’ Imprint staff

Cool. Nothing but extreme cool. That may be all that may need to be said about this concert. Imagine a roaring crowd scr_eaming at the top of their lungs as the musicians creep silently onto the completely dark stage and suddenly a light goes on behind Dana Key and he belts out an a cappella version of Casual Christian in the way only he can. Then the concert begins. The audience was completely won over. The only question left for the remainder of the night was whether the band could get any more cool - and they did. Ed DeGarmo and Dana Key met in high-school and were in a number of garage bands together at that time. After high-school they joined a bafid named Globe and were even offered a recording contract. However, at this time, they both became Christians and soon left the group. They then formed a Christian band, called The Christian Band,

by John Maeon Imprint staff

Love Brewed is an award winning, love story caught in a large cultural predicament. Set in the Ghanaian capital Accra, the Appiah family. typifies the middle class. They are doing their utmost to maintain the society standards set by the departed British. Aba, the eldest daughfer, returns from university to fulfill the aspirations of -her parents by marrying the lawyer son of a local politician. Accidently she meets Joe, a mechanic, and they fall in love. The A piah’s are shattered when A lza states her intention to marry Joe. Her father is insulted when the elders of Joe’s family bring a gift of moonshine instead of the proper imported schnapps. Conflict between African traditions and colonialist cultures are the focus of this film, Beginning as a satire, it shifts smoothly into comedy and then veers toward melodrama. Director Kwah Ansah takes a biased look at Africans who neglect their heritage and adopt the manners of the former colonial masters. “It is not part of our roots”, says Ansah. He entwines voodoo scenes into the film that keep ancient tales of sorcery alive for his audience. This film is a fine example of the progress that has been made in African cinematography. -_ -

by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff It took Brazilian director Suzana Amaral close to 20 years to make her first feature film after raising a large family and graduating from New York University - a classmate of Jim (Stranger Than Paradise, Down By Law) Jarmusch. It would be understating things to say that it’s been worth the wait, though, judging from the numerous international awards it has won and the reception a nearly full Princess Cinema gave its Saturday night screening which the director attended. That the movie can keep your interest over its entire 95 minutes, let alone hold you rapt in its grasp, is rather an extraordinary accomplishment: the idea of an anti-hero is nothing new, but Hour of the Star’s protagonist, Macabea, is an anti-character. And there are maybe five minutes over the whole course of the film where she is not command-

The basic plot: a communist soldier visits a backward village to collect folk songs which will then be taught to soldiers after the lyrics have been changed to patriotic fighting words. He meets a young girl who fears marriage more than anything else and who admires him to no ends. The time: 1939. Was the movie worth it?: no. Made in China, the movie was, in part, a justification of the Mama, I‘m Crying dir. Betty Wolper by Trevor Blair Imprint staff Suprise festival film was in fact two films, The first, a documentary on the abominable conditions in Sout+ African work camps, was realistic to the point of disgusting. Conditions in the form of rampant malnutrition, overcrowdand family separation, ing, coupled with social problems such as the lack of opportunity for black advancement in the work force, presented a horrifying and unavoidably disturbing picture of humanity under white rule. Major companies in SApay blacks pitiful wages, exploiting those with no power to strike back. These very companies and their domestic counterparts

could never get away with their social crimes in our country, and they know it. The film relied heavily on statistics: during the hour it took to watch the documentary, 30 SA children died of malnutrition. A handful of popcorn suddenly tasted iike thumbtacks, and coke tore the lining of my throat. Depressing, disturbing and ultimately annoying, this film demanded attention, inflaming those comfortable enough to simply look away. The main film Mama I’m Crying played effectively off of the anger generated by the documentary. Loosely based on the recollections of a white SA and her former -servant, the plot strayed off to examine the attitudes of the young toward the existing system. Violence is apparently the .only alternative the black youth of SA feel they have. They have long since lost their fear of death, and insist it is far more important to fight for




worsen instead of improve. It would probably be oversimplifying things to say that Macabea has the mind of a child, but the workings of her mind are confounding. She should be miserable, making less than minimum wage and living in a desolate squa’lor focussed upon with scrutinous detail by Amaral in a one-room apartment she shares with three other women. She has the -same dreams as a normal 19-year-old woman, fantasizing about love, marriage, and being a glamourous movie star, but she’s unattractive to put it charitably, and true to her-passivity, only near the end does she experiment with makeup and clothes more flattering than her positively drab attire. But she’s almost maddeningly happy in spite of herself. She glories in taking strolls through the park with a boyfriend who’s indifferent at best. She amuses herself by riding the subway and, without the barest hint of irony in her voice, she sums herself up happily and accurately: “I’m a typist, I’m a virgin, and I like Coca-Cola.” Amaral could haye very easily turned Macabea into a martyr, preyed upon and exploited because of her simplicity, or into an angel with a redemptive innocence. But instead, she makes Macabea a tatal ambiguity, a character with dreams, but no apparent desires; looking for happiness, but devoid of passions (which isn’t, to further complicate things, to call her emotionless). Like Betty Blue’s heroine, she is an elusive, vexing




wrestles with the viewer’s mind in a compulsive search for unders t anding. A brief question and answer session with Amaral ensued after the screening, a sampling of which follows, Could you tell us something about the book your film was adapted from? Hour of the Star was written by a Brazilian writer, Clarice Lispector, who is considered to be a sort of Brazilian Joyce. Yes, she writes in a stream of consciousness style. I was attracted to this book because the main character is actually an anticharacter. She’s not an active character, but she’s one I can appreciate. What about the references to the north of Brazil? Macabea is from’the north the northerners in Brazil are sort of refugees. It’s a very undeveloped area still, but they are real outsiders in the south, culturally outside. How did you choose Marcelia Cartaxo for the lead role? (Among other awards, Cartaxo won the Silver Bear at The Berlin Film Festival for Best Actress.) I didn’t want anyone recognizable for the part and it just happened that Marcelia was part of a theatre troupe that toured the south. As soon as I saw her, I knew she was right for the part. How successful was the film

in Brazil? It was quite a success, it played there for two or three months. Actually, it was a lot more successful than I thought it would be, especially since it was made for less than $200,000 and in less than four weeks.

communist revolution. Yellow Earth attempted to show what pre-communist rural China was like. The movie dealt with typical revolutionary topics like famine, draught, and social organization, but it dwelled primarily on pre-arranged marriage. The movie starts off with a marriage and ends with Ciu Qiao, the film’s heroine, running away from her marriage, Thus, the film seems to state that the main concern of the Chinese communist revolution was Marriage. The movie lacked substance; it failed to hold my attention. Sure, it had imagery, but a movie dependent on imagery should break new ground lest it become a boring re-hash of over-used images. Yellow Earth fell into this trap.

Their rustic, but fairly idyllic existence is disrupted by Hehe’s abandonment of his wife, Quirong, and son as he turns his back on the traditional peasant life in favour of ill.-concerved entrepreneurial pursuits like farming silkworms - he finally hits it big in the flying squirrel dropping business. Only the stoic Quirong escapes Xueshu’s satiric eye. Faced with having to provide for herself and her infant son, all she can worry about is trying to eke out a living.

Las Madres: The Mothers Of The Plaza de Mayo Argentina/USA 1985 dir. Susan0 Munoz and Lourdes Portillo by Ttevor Blair Imprint staff A fine Argentine film called Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo played to a tiny audience in a repeat performance at the Arts Lecture Hall last Sunday. Thirty thousand alleged sub*versives were kidnapped by the Argentine military governinent in 1976. After the suspention of all constitutional rights, the resultant state of martial law in Argentina was supposed to terrorize any government resistance. The yictims of this terror campaign were from all walks of I life, many of them students. The mothers of the disappeared began to assemble in the Plaza de Mayo and have done so every Thursday, insisting the criminal government and its underlings are brought to justice.

Perfu med Nightmare by Peter Dedes Imprint staff The Princess Cinema played host to Perfumed Nightmare,a festival choice film from the Philippines. Set in the Philippines of the mid-‘7(ls, this film is the journey of the director, Kidlat Tahimik, in his eventual understanding of American culture and the ideals of the country of his dreams. Perfumed Nightmare also makes commentary on American involvement in the Philippines and the unreasonable dreams that the benefactors have installed into the natives. The theme of the journey into enlightenment is first explored in the symbolism of bridges. The most important bridge in Kidlat’s life is the bridge which connects his village to the city. The narrow stone bridge is the way out for Kidlat. It permits the passage of small vehicles and restricts the traffic of larger vehicles. Crossing this bridge are children playing, political leaders preaching conformity and contestants in the Miss LJniverse pageant. The bridge takes part in the final journey as a funeral procession crosses. This bridge is not enough. The Voice of America is the all pervasive foreign influence. Kidlat listens to the programs religiously and absorbs as much of America as he can. He is enthralled with visions of progress and space travel and becomes president of the Werner von Braun fan club, He dreams of going to America because, “in America I can become an astronaut, here I am only a jeepie driver.” Kidlat gets his chance

when he is invited to travel to America. First, though he must spend a year in France. In Paris, Kidlat sees bridges everywhere and believes he is in paradise. It is here that Kidlat meets Lola, an elderly egg vendor. Kidlat begins to be aware that there are some imperfections in the American way of life as one of the last merchants of the four seasons dies to make way for the supermarket, the vendor of synthetic eggs. His disillusion is complete: when it is time to fly to paradise, he leaves, finally in comprehension of the falsity of the American

Dream. This film brings to attention the psychological injustices that . the Filipino people have suffered as they try to juxtapose their culture with imported technologies and beliefs. The film certainly succeeds in conveying the emotion and outrage of Tahimik as he is witness to the exploitation : of I;is country by the Americans. J Clumsy use of sytibolism and artistry, however, detract from the almost documentary nature of Ttihimik’s intent. Ninety minutes of pseudo-artistry seems unjustified in the presentation of such important subject matter.

by DJ Coldcut it has become seven minutes of stuttering found voice lunacy and, also, the year’s best single. Of course, it bears little resemblance, to the original song which has been included, for ease of comparison, on the B-side. Paid In Full has been reconstructed to such an extent that it almost seems ridiculous to credit it to Eric B. and Rakim. Opening u with a Mr. Science-type t K is is a journey into sound, Coldcut and pals manage to integrate samples from James Brown’s Funky

Best of 1987 Springsteen and their other superstar pals are. It’s so wonderfully ironic that ego-monsters like Sting consciously strive to be creative and conform to some illusory ideal of “art”. Meanwhile Eric B. and Rakim make no such claims and produce music which is miles ahead in terms of creativity, innovation and mastery of sonic texture. Fuck Sgt. Peppers’ babes, Eric B. and Rakim eat trash like that as an appetizer, Though the title track Paid in Full was only the fourth best song on Eric B. and Rakim’s debut LP, in the hands of British hip-hop remix psychopaths led

Drummer, Salt’n’Pepa’s Funky Drummer clone My Mike sounds Nice, Original Concept’s Pump That Bass, along with an Indian singer (Pandit Dinesh, I believe), and innumerable bits of dialogue from radio and TV shows into the slow, insistent reggae-ish groove of the original song. If that wasn’t enough, they even find room to include most of Rakim’s original rap. Though this is a million miles removed from any conventional conceptions of rap, it is nonetheless proof of hip-hop supremacy. Brilliant, unique and like I said before, the best single of 1987 so far.

by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff Well, all right! Rejoice, all you Canadian Content programmers who’ve been starving away for some honest-to-goodness, necksnapping, back bacon rock, assuming, of course, that Bryan Adams and Helix don’t quite cut it in your definition of R ‘n’ R. At any rate, here come Montreal’s Gruesomes back with all guitars blazing on a second album guaranteed to whip the most mellow and reflective types into a moptopped frenzy. Their debut, Tyrants of Teen Trash, was plenty cool, but no way did it prepare me for this. It ain’t original, that’s for sure, but that’s not the point with garage-rock - it’s a genre that thrives on necrophilia and if you can rip off more cool riffs than anyone else, more power to you, And as a brain-broiling ’60s time-trip, well, maybe The Creeps’ debut album has Grusomania beat, but I don’t know if anything else does. Surf instrue mentals (Whirlpool), ’60s British skiffle-rock a la The Yardbirds and The Prett Things [Leave My Kitten A Tone), Psychotic Reaction spinoffs (Why Me), and the de rigeur grunge ‘n’ twang of garage-rock of the most bad-

‘assed variety - it’s all here, kids. They’re not opening up any new frontiers, of cor.lrse. but the gruesome foursome have learned how to play those instruments in the past few months - just dig that crazy riff in You Said Yeah and the heaven-sent guitar solos througho.ut the 14 smokin’ . tracks, But where Grusomania really .stomps all over the competition is in the intensity department something many garage revivalist s lose somewhere in all the fuzz, Bobby Beaton has never sounded more of a pissed-off, snotty brat, and Gerry Alvarez adds a lot more howling this time out, Their cover of “close friend” Bo Diddley’s I Can Tell, Time’s Gonna Come, and Way Down Befow, where Bobby’s larynx. damn near spontaneously combusts as he condemns the archetypal heartbreaking hussy to eternal hellfire, are all too whacked-out for words. And speaking of words, you might even get a kick out of the lyrics, clever reworkings of all the standard “I’m such a loser she’s such a bitch” cliches: “I feel like a heel cuz I got no wheels/ I ask girls out but they say ‘no deal+./ It doesn’t really matter that they all say no,/ I can’t take them out cuz I got no dough” Why Me. Kinda makes you wanna grow your hair long, but a whole set of mod threads, and trade in your Nissan for a Rickenbacker. But if you buy Grusomania, best dig out some shin guards, ‘cause this record kicks.

ing [And Constantly), “an endless shift of sifting through! the facts, the fey! you never know for sure.” You won’t know for sure either when you listen to this album, and you are not supposed to. * The fold-out lyrics sheet does help, though, in mentally co-ordinating the rhythm and words.

Jane Siberry’s latest album, The Walking, fits right into this time of year. Images of falling leaves, flying geese, and more frequently of snow and cold, combine with weighty electronic instrumentation to create an atmosphere of gloomy, mysterious earthiness. Enigmatic lyrics abound. Jane sings, in the title cut The Wulk-

Siberry’s sound is not likely to appeal to everybody. I found a number of songs, such as Goodbye and Ingrid and the Footman, reminiscent of Kate Bush, yet less successful. The fault doesn’t lie with the music, but rather with Siberry’s voice. Impotent and watery, it doesn’t pull off the special effects intended to embellish the

The Gruesomes

songs. Siberry constantly pushes her range to ambitious highs and lows which she doesn’t quite reach. Her less than perfect voice does not, however, detract from her effectiveness as a composer. The variety of songs on the album - from a seemingly banal conversation6argument in Lena is a White TabIe, to the operettastyle The Bird in the Gravel bears witness to Siberry’s creative versatility. If voice this much less, you, album

by John Zacbariah Imprint staff ii Fashion had ever been possessed of talent, they may have sounded like Toronto band Alta Moda, which is not great praise. A moderately good,. but by no means great record, AJta Moda is cast from basically the same fre8ze-dried, dance-pop mold that the dismal Fabrique was, the former with pseudo-funk flecks throughout. what makes

AJta Moda a superior product is the warmth and energy of its execution, and singer Molly Tohnson’s full,hstrong voice. The results are songs like Train, the moving, irridescent Notown [In uasiParticular), and the spare, surreal My Millionaire: a1 1 impressive, though nnt spectacular On the other hand, the listener is also faced with the likes’of Cool Love and Classique, hideouslv crystalline dance numb&s, soulless and drab. And the cliched “I-know-the-scorein-life” lyrics tend to be irritating. But Alto Moda shows promise, and if the band maintains the quality of the good cuts here through the length of an entire record, the results should be dazzling.

I have not lately seen any album jacket art that has made my stomach churn until I picked up this latest offering from Godley and Creme. But you don’t judge a book by it’s cover, right? Wrong!!!

This four-song EF from these ex-10 CCer’s ranks among the most intellectually devoid rubbish that I have ever heard in any dance club, If you like to dance, this is a great album. There is a persistent drum machine beat, funky bass and incessant, mundane, white boy hyper-rhyming rap. There’s even a semi-humorous tribute to Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water. This bit of vinyl is supposed to be an appetizer for a forthcoming album. It is, however, difficult to have your taste tempted when three of the four songs on this offering are re-mixes.

one of the most powerful compilations of intelligent music this year. Yoyo is the second al bum released by this California based quintet. Producer Todd Rundgren (from Utopia) has encouraged Bob Bourgeois and Larry Tagg, theprincipal writers to make their music, especially their lyrics, intensely personal. Instead of recapitulating tired political themes, Bourgeois Tagg explore themselves. Themes of love and fear are intriguingly presented though some of the images seem a mite forced, Musically, Tagg seem to prefer to employ an eclectic approach with each track ‘containing something slightly different. Even verse-chorus changes within songs contain markedly different sensibilities. Waiting for the Worm to Turn is a magi-

Just what the hell is a re-mix anyway? It’s just technicians fooling around with a song until it fills up the space on a 12” single as many different ways as possible. Anyways, if you like to dance and you don’t care what you dance to, get this mini-album. Also, if you like scary record jacket art, get Snuck Attack. Finally, if you like the words to Wet Rubber Soup, and don’t give a shit about the music, get this album. If not, go to the record store, look at the record and then buy a pizza.

cal example of this. lazz-funk verse and-ethereal anth”emic chorus combine to create what will undoubtedly be the kick-off single. Beatles influence is evident in two qf the tracks. I Don’t Mind weaves a beautiful melody around lush string arrangements. Coma conjures up images of Strawberry Fields with hypnotic vocal effects. Yoyo is not only music for the mind. Both sides are replete with excellent danceable music, The album’s strength however is a result of artistic depth. Uncompromising attitudes toward lyric and music and the immaculate production values of Todd Rundgren result in an album of major importance. Yoyo is must-buy vinyl for everyone.

There’s also a previously unreleased version of Conolly’s IOO CC. and the pre-Nomads (“Ve vant to ricord von uf yer songs”] version of She Pays The Rent. What kind of Lyres compila- %ion would it be without the inclusion of the seminal Don’t Give it Up Now or How Do You Know? - they’re both here. Oh yeah, in case you were wondering, for a live recording the sound quality is, surprisingly bright . . . mono - what else? L0vi.n’

Back from the Crypt comes a new compilation of old Lyres i live tracks recorded over- the seven years of their i1 with the emphasis being existence, on longi forgotten covers. ‘Included 1. alongside the classics such as i :Louie Louie, the Standell $Little 1’ Sally Tease and The Tongues of ;: Truth’s Let’s Talk About Girls .*I are a few oddities like Lily, Long ;~Gone, Geraldine and Bill Halley ” and the Comets’ Skinny Minny. Most interesting though is the inclusion of the R&B-type material which charts the development of the embryonic Lyres

Of the enormous glut of ‘BUS garage punk compilations released in the last few years probably one of the more innovative collections as far as breaking th,e more unique documents of teen psychosis have been the mansWorld Punk volumes featuring strange regional mutations of R&B, Beat by groups from Italy, France, Holland (and yes, even Canada). What it showed was that the genre wasn’t peculiar to North America . . it was actually an international phenomenon. In a similar way, Searching In The WILDemeas adds substance to the world-wide conspiracy theory but focuses more on the primal beats of England and the Nordic expanse without dredging up any “U.K. psychedelic bilge” as ga,rage guru Tim Warren succinctly commented. As with any collection, there are a couple of duff tracks (when the liner notes say things like “a good example of their aore mel

lodic style”, you should know what you’re in for) but fortunately they form the minority. Why the fab In Crowd’s Things She Says hasn’t previously appeared on another compilation is beyond me but it’s here at last for all to dig. I’ll leave the description of this pre-Tomorrtiw Steve Howe rave-up to the notes: “Ferocious, mutated post R&B guitar mayhem characterizes the In Crowd’s monumental 1965 feedback and overload orgy of strangled guitars, howling vocals, wailing harp, a truly brutal rhythm attack, compression, leakage, demented B-string axe murder, and the Parlophone kitchen sink, all combined into a savage witches brew of HELL RAISING FURY!!” Yeah! Especially cool is what sounds like a studio rehearsal by a group listed as the Muswell Ravens. The Ravens (from the Muswell Hill district) was the original name of the Kinks and the track AU Aboard is an outtake circa 1965. This is definitely worth seeking out even if they did cop their label name and sleeve from the Dutch Outsiders’ first single.

As long as these Nomads have been around, you’d think they’d have an attic o’records by now but no, Hardwire is their first full-length album. To be truthful, I sort of expected a whole lot more from them than simple retreads of those worn out jungle/swamp cliches that many lesser Euro-punks are still bound to. Probably the album’s best work is Call Off Your Dogs written specifically for the group by longtime fans Jeffery Lee Pierce and Peter Case. The screamed refrains splattered on thick ‘n’ throbbing guitar chords is prime Nomadic raunch recalling the past glory of Where The Wolfbane Blooms. Another standout is a raging reading of the Dictators’ punk anthem 16 Forever which they bring some deeper meaning to despite what the calendar says. Hoardes of fist-shaking vikings are brought to mind with Check Your Backdoor - one of those slow, menacing beasts that the Nomads invoke every now and again just to show the Psychotic Youth who are the sultans of the Solna scene. Some fine stuff here if you look long and hard enough.

Hot off the Link presses, run by certified couch-potatoes Billy and Miriam, is a four volume rockin’ instrumental compilation series called Strummin’ Mental. With lQ(!) primitive stompers on each record by incredibly obscure groups like the Terri-tones, Megatons, Johnny and The Volumes and The Creshells, the KICKSter twins have once again done fans of twangin’ garage music a great favour by turning a spotlight on a vast and lively portion of America’s rich musical heritage (cue fanfare).

Many people are still blissfully unaware that pounding instros were the code of the day as far as music that teens could infuriat e their folks with back in the dark ages of rock before Los Beatles appeared on the Sullivan show and proved that even longhaired wimps from foreign countries could have the chicks screamin’ if they hit the right chords and smiled a lot, Why, even bands from Minnesota and Wisconsin didn’t let the fact that there wasn’t any curls in a thousand mile radius dissuade them. They just loaded up their older brother’s Fender Jaguars with the heaviest strings they could find (bass strings would do in a pinch) and blasted the Midwest into surf music history. If you thought surf was just a bunch of fat beach preps whining about California girls then plug yourself into Strummin’ Mental and get the real scoop t roup!

So it is with the bxording,

True, the instrumentation is carefully assembled and the parts well played, the resulting saund somehow lacks the spark of its predecessors. Maybe everything is a little too well thought and re-thought. Greg Prevost is in fine voice (which for this genre, amounts to a sneering growl) but his screams and wails come off sounding a bit calculated. It’s spontaneity that they lack. Similarly with (recently exguitarist] Rick Cona’s leads for the most part they’re competent if not clever but a touch contrived which might be acceptable for any other group playing music of this sort but for The Chesterfield Kings, it runs contrary to their punk ethic and

Looking to set your imagination aflame? If so, the newly reissued Diet ionary of Imaginary Places, by Gianni Guadalupi and Alberta Manguel, should spark up quite a conflagration. In some musty place on earth may exist a catalogue such as theirs, but it’s * unlikely to be as depthful, exhaustive or bewitching. A rick and fascinating compendium of colourful, haunting and provocative places from the pages of the worid’s literature, the book received wide critical acclaim when it was first published in 188~. Re-released for this year by Lester and Orpen Dennys in Toronto (with 11 pages of new entries)+ this extraordinary dictionary is like a bowl of salted peanuts at a bar: addictive.

A place could not be from the future, it had to be on planet Earth, and it could not be a disguise for a reallife place. Even with these constraints, though, the Dictionary of Imaginary Places is still immensely entertaining, It’ll keep you up to the small hours of-the morn, and take you to places you’ll find on no topographic map. Take the trip now.

In the tournament opener, the Athenas trounced the host club Ravens, 67-34. Carleton jumped out to an early 6- oint lead, but Waterloostorme B back to take a commanding 30-18 lead by half-time. With tough defence, the Athenas held the Ravens to 16 second half points. Kim Rau led the Athenas with 14; while Brenda Bowering meshed 12 and Jen Hinton added 0. The next match saw Waterloo face the tough, nationallyranked McGill Martiets. The Athenas played aggressively on

defence throughout the first half, but encountered difficulties , mastering McGill’s press. Rau kept the Athenas within striking distance by hooping an outstanding 18 points in the first half. McGill’s strong shooting allowed them to take a 37-34 lead to the dressing room. Both clubs came out determined at the outset of the second half, which turned out to be an exciting display of end-to-end basketball. Waterloo applied full-court pressure, allowing the Martlets to capitalize on several transition hoops. In the end, McGill prevailed 71-56, a score which is not indicative of the play In the battle for the bronze l

medal, Waterloo downed Concordia, 65-62, Once again, Rau was unstoppable offensively, She sunk 10 field goals in the first half and 7 in the second, finishing the contest with a careerhigh 35 points. Bowering added 8, while Michelle Campbell kicked in 6 and Karen McCulla, 4.

Rau’s outstanding play was recognized, as she was honoured as tournament MVP. This is traditionally bestowed upon a player on the championship team. But tradition took a back seat, due to Rau’s incomparable performance. The Athenas kick off their regular season next November 18 at the PAC against Guelph. Tip-off inQnm

The Warrior volleyball team added two more “Ws” to their record last week, with the wins coming at the expense yf Western and Windsor. On November 3, a large and appreciative crowd saw arch-rival Western gallop into the PAC only to be corralled by the Warriors. The first Waterloo lassos came in the form of an early barrage of slam-blocks, roping the Mustang offensive charges. tech Uekeska and Steve Heck had the Mustang defence hitting the dust with some offensive sharpshooting of their own, Steady steeds Vince Descamps, Scott Smith, and Ron Clarke along with cocky colt Steve Smith proved more valiant than the best of the Mustangs, who were forced to play more like timid foals. Warrior Tony Martins set a furious pace for the unbridled Warrior attack. Through consistent play, the Warriors downed Western in a surprising three straight games,

Perhaps the key to the match was Waterloo’s shutting down Western’s big guns, Paul Husson and Peter Siksna, as strong blocking and serving kept the Mustang offence at bay. Because of their victory, the Warriors are sure to trade places with Western in the national rankings, where the Mustangs were ranked ninth, and Waterloo 10th. Hired guns Dave Plouf and Brian Daman, who were instrumental in Waterloo’s earlier victory over Mac; weren’t needed this time as the ‘*magnificent seven” of Bekeska, Clarke, Deschamps, Heck, Martins and the lanky Smith brothers were all that was necessary to tame the Mustangs. On Novmeber 6, the jubilant Warriors travelled to Windsor to take on the Lancers. The Warriors proved too much for the inexperienced Lancers, and swept the match, 15-1, 15-2 and 15-8. The winning Warriors head down to Laurier on November 17, and host Guelph on November 20.


Naism-ith by Mike McGraw Imprint staff

Homecoming. When most people hear this word they think of broken windows, drunken street parties and police riot squads. At Waterloo, homecoming is identified with one thing - basket ball. This weekend at the PAC. Waterloo plays host to the prestig ious 28th annual Naismith Cla& sic basketball tournament at the PAC Over the years, the tournament has been a hotbed of basketball talent. This year’s Naismith field is one of the best ever assembled around CIATJ circles. Here, then, is a preview of what to look for from each team this weekend. BRANDON BOBCATS: Last ye-ar’s CIAU champions are still the country’s basketball juggernaut. Sure they’ve lost threetime all-Canadian John Carson, but with replacements and returnees they’re the team to beat once again. Keep your eye on 6’7” guard David Dominique, another refugee from Tulane University in New Orleans, who many feel is even better than Carson. Up front, the Bobcats are virtually unstoppable with 6’8” Whitney Dabney (yes, another New Orleans product) and Patrick Jebbison. The Bobcats are missing only one thing - a weakness. REGINA COUGARS: Perhaps


the only team that will battle Brandon for their GPAC and CIAU crowns this campaign. Spearheaded by 1987 CIAU MVP and national team member Chris Biegler, the Cougars arrive at UW with the same starting 12 that put them in the top IO last season. Key names to watch for are front court huns Bill Knudsen and Robert Andrist and court general, fifth year guard James Hillis, Next to the Bobcats, the Cougars are arguably the country’s best roundball team. If for some reason Brandon falters+ watch out for Regina. ACAIMA AXEMEN: This team survived the long, cold winter in the top 5, only to be turfed in Atlantic -regionals by St. Mary%. Thanks to the mindboggling decisions made by the wild card selectors, Acadia wasn’t even invited to the CIAU tournamebt. Despite the obvious travesty, the Axemen, too, are one of Canada’s creme de la creme. .Their biggest asset is bulk up front, led by 8’7” Peter Morris, another national team member. The only problem might be, getting the ball over half, as they are counting on some young faces at guard to control their offence, But in the front COUH the’ Axemen may have no Peers. ST.FRANCIS XAVIER XMEN: Courtside, the X-Men are governed by the experience of an assistant Olympic team coach,

On Halloween weekend, the Waterloo Warriors dressed up like a bad basketball team. Last weekend+ the masquerade ended, as the Warriors notched second place in the Guelph Invitational tournament. UW slammed the host Gryphons, 80-72, but were handed a lashing of their own by a stacked Toronto Senior men’s team, 8% 66. Injurywise, Warrior coach Don McCrae must be feeling a sense of deja vu. Like last season, his squad is hobbling into the annual Naismith tournament. Fiery rookie Chris Troyak is shelved with a possible stress fracture, Defenders of the front court 6’9” Jamie McNeil1 [ankle sprain) and 0’8” Dave Rosebush (muscle strain) are likely to play this weekend. On Friday night, Waterloo rolled over the host club. Rob Froese’ led all scorers as he hooped 24 points, Refreshingly, eight other Warriors scored between 8 and 10 points. Serge Bolzon led the Guelph attack with 21, while Ron Darling meshed 20. However, McNeil1 crumbled to the floor with a sprained

Soccer rourid-yp by Tim


You thought you were rid of these horrible soccer articles, Well you aren’t. This is, of course, the end of the season soccer round-up. To put it bluntly this was not a good year, In fact this year’s team accumulated only one more point than last year’s team. This ,was not so great as the league on the whole was worse this year. Only Laurier was as strong as last year. The 1987 version of the soccer Warriors finished with a 2-8-4 won-lostetied record for 8

Cheerleaders go to Rie%on The 1987-88 varsity cheerleading team will be representing Waterloo in the third annual Canadian cheerleading championships to be held at Ryerson November 20. . The team has designed two three-minute routines that demonstrate the expertise of the team members and depth of the squad. This year’s team looks promising, but will face strong competition from defending nationa)l champs Western and the strong Laurier squad from down the street. . The team is coached by SteGe Morrison, also a coach of a local cheerleading organization.

.. points. The 1986 team’s record was l-8-5. The 1988 team scored 10 goals and let in 17, The 1987 team scored 11 goals and let in 22. This regression in goals allowed was one of the main reasons for the Warriors lack of improvement this year. The Warriors showed improvement on attack- this year but unfortunately the defence was not up to last year’s standard. The 1986 defence was able to shut down the big offences. The 1987 team allowed 12 goals to the top-two teams while the 1986 team allowed only six to last year’s top two teams. As previously stated the i987, offence was much better than the 1986 offence. Although they only scored one more goa1 than last year, they dramatically irnb proved the total amount of time that the Warriors spent in the op. position end of the field. In 1~66 the Warriors defended for practically every minute of every game. The 1987 team, although -unable to produ,ce goals effectively, were able to control the ball in their offensive zone for long periods of time. A bright sign ‘this ear was the emergence of Carr OS Burmeister and Paul Knafelc as possible goal scorers in the future. The’ Warrior midfield was also noticeably stronger this year as Upen Kawale,Pete Straub, and Brent ‘Wathan all had respectable ears. A late-season addition to t K s midfield Dan Rogozynski was a very pleasant surprise as he played the style of soccer that led the Warriors to the o&IA+ finals seven seasons ago. This years defencs was hurt by the graduation of John “Sasquatch” Gimple. and Ralph Barker, both fullbacks in excess of 8’0” and 280 pounds. Last year’s goalkeeper, Tim Walked, was forced to sit out this year while he recupemted from open heart surgery.. .*_ . These lossea left the Warriors

weak at the back. Fortunately, Bruce Hollamby and 8iLly Mueller picked up much of the slack. Hollamby will likely be a OUAA a&star. Ricardo Bean and Peter Tchir both played well but were hurt by their cumulative lack af experience. Next years defence, although without 1986 team .MVP Scott Robinson, will be much improved. This year the Warriors-tried three diffewt goalies. Finally, Rob’Terry .ernerged as the starter. Next year the experience that Terry gained this year will improve his game t remendo-udy. The 198? Warriors will play as many indoor’games as poqible in an attempt to improve4beir game. for tb 1988 outdoor season. At t hh ‘point in time the outlook for the P988 season is gwd.

Swimming Warriors win double header by Greeme Peppler Imprint staff Sunday mornings are an opportune time to catch up on lost hours of sleep incurred during a week of studying, partying, or general late-night boob-tube wat thing. So it was with considerable weariness that members of UW’s varsity men’s and women’s swim teams lumbered to the PAC at 9 a.m. November 8 to play host to an equally dozy and late arriving - University of Montreal. On the heels of their defeat of the York Yeomem swimmers cm Friday evening, the Warriors and Athenas breathed fire [or caffeine, if the truth be told) on their French-Canadian visitors and splashed to a98 to91 overall victory in front of a handful of spectators in the PAC pool facility. The prospects for a closely fought competition got off to a less than sparkling start when the Athena “A” and “B” teams placed an unopposed first and second in the 4x50 medley relay. This was followed closely by Athena Cathy Aube’s storming 400 free which earned her nothing more than a disqualification for an overly aggressive start. The men’s 4x50 medley relay got things going, however, when

the foursome of Dave Dineen, Chris Cupidio, Jeff Slater, and Joe Milla led from start to finish to take the Warrior’s first win of the meet. Soon afterwards, Greg Pye collected a second place in the 400 free - a race in which he claimed victory against York on Friday and a placing he was later to emulate in the 400 individual medley against Montreal. Athena newcomer Leslie Fedora fought-off the attacks of Montreal’s Suzanne Desrosiers to record a win in the 200 free while later she out-touched Isabelle Tremblay by three tenthsof-a-second to finish runner-up to teammate Cathy Aube in the. 100 fly. Meanwhile, Bermudian olympit team hopeful Dave Cash took the men’s 200 storm in a time of 1:5&g while a second place in the 100 free was the best he could muster despite his time of 50.5 seconds. Back for another season with Waterloo, veteran Alison Loucas and British Columbian Dave Adams finished first and second respectively in their fleeting 50 free races. Loucas also won the 100 free becoming the only Waterloo swimmer who was able to win more than a single individual event during the competiton. Loucas, who divides her time between school, varsity swimming, and a coaching job with

the highly successful Region of Waterloo Swim Club, also achieved notoriety against York by becoming the first Waterloo swimmer of the year to surpass CIAU qualifying standards. She did so by blitzing through the 50 free in a time of 27.8 seconds. Nancy Crump’s dependability came through in the eclectic 200 and 400 individual medley races. Second place was her reward in both. events on Sunday while on Friday at York, she produced ripping performances in the 200 individual medley, the 100 fly, and the 200 breaststroke. Steve Head’s obsession with the 100 fly may have been put on hold when he scored an impressive and crucial victory in the men’s 100 breaststroke race against Montreal, He was followed closely to the finish by rookie Chris Cupidio. Dave Dineen’s contribution to Waterloo’s tally came by way of a third place finish in the 200 free - an event coach Dave Heinbuch seems to be grooming him for - and a first place in the 100 back, proving he can give the Warriors something they haven’t had in years: a backstroker. Dineen, a resident of Waterloo and refugee from the Region of Waterloo Swim Club, also took control of the 200 free against York in Friday’s meet to record his first race win as a Waterloo Warrior finishing in a time of

Polo Warriors flounder in weekend action The waterpolo Warriors lropped two close games at U of : last weekend. They were dged 5-3 by Western while Toonto nicked them 12-Q. Waterloo’s erratic play in the irst quarter against Western alowed the Londoners to take a -0 lead on a power play goal. In ffort to shake the team out of its tupor, the Warriors changed oaltenders, allowing the ag.ressive Scott Murray to play orward. The move backfired as Yestern scored twice while Waerloo’s offence sputtered. With UWO leading 3-0 in the hird quarter, the Warriors fi*ally got back on track against he tiring Mustangs. The Wariors closed the gap to 4-3, ijut Western scored a late goal to ice 5-3 victory. Norbert Molnar etched two of UW’s goals ;tnd

The Warriors lost the speed and leadership of Slater as he fouled out, After this, the Warrior defence struggled and conceded 7 Toronto goals, including 2 on penalty shots. Jim Steinbach netted three for Waterloo, while Joe Milla and Keith Beckley scored two apiece. Molnar and Thonias Meyer meshed the others.


Head coach Dave Heinbuch was especially pleased with the work of the bench. “Our substitute players put in a very good effort again today, They are still lacking a bit in experience but are learning quick11 and will help us in the future.” Assistant coach Shane Rolm lans was also very positive, stating “it was good to see thr offence finally get on track against Toronto. We’ve showr: that we can be competitive wit1 any team in the league, but it’s t big step from being competitive to winning.” The Warriors close out thei season with three home games They host York at the PAC OI November 18 at 730, and Yorl on November 21 at Laurier start ing at 11:OO.

The coach of the men’s and women’s teams, Dave Heinbuch, who recentIy announced his impending departure from the swimming program effective next spring, was pleased with the general level of effort put in by team members during both competitions.

“I saw

“I saw some very positive things in the pool this weekend,” he commented after Sunday’s win. “The swimmers put in good efforts and deserve a lot of credit for the win.” Hopes on the team are high that a top-three position in Ontario is within reach by the end of the swimming season in March. The University of Montreal men came through on the final relay of Sunday’s meet, the 4x50 free, to win the race but the result left them one point short of the Warriors, 48 points to 47, The Athenas were able to accumulate 50 points during the meet and thus win their battle over the Montreal women by a 8point margin.

Lacrosse team loses to Brock in semis by Michael Treaty Imprint staff The University of Waterloo Field Lacrosse Club lost in the semi-finals of the Ontario Universities Field Lacrosse Championships November 8 in Toronto. Waterloo began the tournament by crushing Carleton 16-5, completely dominating the game. Waterloo led 9-2 at halftime. The victory was a total team effort, with most players contributing offensively. Dan Gerrard was leading scorer with four goals and two assists, John Grant and Matt Firth each had three goals, Brian McIsaac added two. Gord Ellis, Brad Hause, Jim Cassibo and Jeff Lovell added singles. The Waterloo defence played ti strong dominating game, with Andrew Taylor again making the big saves in net. Waterloo met Brock in the se-

mi-finals, a game that really could have been the finals. Brock and Waterloo finished one-two in the stronger western division and were the two top teams in the championships. The teams from the eastern division, York, U of T, Carleton and Queen’s were not as skilled as those in the west. Waterloo and Brock played a very fast paced, physical game but in the end, the defending Ontario champions won. Brad Hause led Waterloo with three goals, Gus Liadis, Peter Pavlenich and John Grant scored twice. The Waterloo Lacrosse Club had a very successful season, and the team is looking tdward the spring lacrosse tournament in Hamilton, where 14 Canadian and American schools are to compete. By then lacrosse will become sanctioned by the OUAA.

Jeff Slater scored the other. Waterloo approached the game against Toronto with the intent of being competitive. After all, they had previously trounced the Warriors by 11 and 13 goals. True to their word, Waterloo took a 2-1 lead out of the first quarter, and later led 5-4, only to see Toronto tie it 5-5 by half-time.

seconds. The men’s 200. individual medley saw Jeff Slater, Jeff Budau, and Eric Fergin finishing in second, third, and fourth places against a fast Jacques Jodoin of Montreal. Budau and Fergin also tackled the 400 individual medley, giving best to the same opponent in spite of impet uous efforts to see to the contrary. Against York, Budau impressed with his victory in the 200 individual medlev completing the distance in a time ne’arly equal to his personal best and Joe Milla continued to show copious amounts of speed while thrashing through his freestyle events during both weekend meets. Other point scoring efforts for Waterloo - points are awarded on a 5-3-l basis for first, second, and third with only two results per team counting, and 7 points to nil are up for grabs on relays - were Kim Boucher, Stephanie Gamble, Joanne Aldridge, Heidi Leblanc, Lisa McCuaig, Andi Kenyon, and diving convert Carol McNiece, Scott Whyte, Mike Cash, Al Hainer, Jonatlian Mathews, Dan Stratton, and Dan Maddock all served notice of their intentions by recording point scoring finishes or respectable early season times during both weekend meets as did work-term swimmers’ Dave March and the lanky Graham StrinRer at York.
