In a referendum held last February, Waterloo students voted 53.8 per cent in favour of leaving the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) in order to join a bold new v e n t u r e i n s t u d e n t p r o v i n c i a l representa tion. The result has been the formation of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA).

Five hundred women ga thered last weekina”TakeBack theNight” march to demonstrate their right to safety and independence. The annual event, which t o o k placeinvariouscitiesacrossCanada on Thursday, September 17, was organized to protest and create an awareness of violence against women. Male supporters were invited to join the group at Speaker’s Corner and the coffee house which followed. The March was relatively peaceful a n d g o o d -humouredthe participants were united and confi-

A y o u n g w o m a n n a m e d Darcy spoke about her experience of violence on the street as the march concluded at Speaker’s Corner. The coffe h o u s e afterward featured an acappella set by Pat Skinner, songs by women’s group Akosha, as well as several other speakers and musicians. The fact that the event was w e l l attended by men and women gave attendees hope -- though one speaker did admit that a few decades ago she didn’t believe that there

Federation Report Card l

by Kierun Green Imprint stuff

In February, 1992, the University of Waterloo undergraduate population engaged in its annual exercise in democracy, electing three new individuals to serve in the Federation of Students. Campaigns rolled into high gear, banners were unfurled, and most importantly, promises were made. Now as we enter a new fall term, bidding a wistful adieu to summer, it seems a good time to look back at those promises made so long ago, and see just how much has been accomplished in the past four months since the high command officially changed. Dave Martin was elected President of the Federation of Students. Foremost if! his campaign platform was the eashg of financial burdens facing students ‘through a restructuring of the Ontario Student Assistance Program @SAP); a promise also made by Vice President, University Affairs, Sue Crack. More specifically, Martin and Crack proposed a system whereby students could repay their loans at a rate relative to their post-graduate incomes. (See related article “ F u n d i n g P r o p o s a l s . . .” i n I m p r i n t -- Sept 18/92).

Currently, even as you read this article, the Feds are hard at work putting this plan into dotion. A second platform of Dave Martin was a promise to improve the co-operative education system. He vowed to strengthen weak links between co-op and the Federation of Students. Acting on this promise, the Fed executive attended co-op meetings over the summer. In addition, starting this fall, co-op has been given some space and a mailbox in the Federation office so that they will have a permanent base from which to work. Other changes that the Feds are pushing for include the implementation of a co-ordinator evaluation system and the creation of a manual for employers to help make clear what is expected of them. Finally, Martin promised the establishment of a Student PartTime Employment Centre, which you may now find in Campus Centre room 206. Brent McDermott was elected vice-president, operations and’ finance. First in McDermott’s campaign was the proper use of deficit spending. He believes that proper deficit spending involves the improvement of what you already have, to make it more viable. However, excellent deficit spending by the previous Federa-

You see, he knew our Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey was made with Tennessee cave spring water and seeped through room high mellowing vats before aging. Mr. Motlow knew value when he saw it. And still today, though Jack Daniel’s is priced above many whiskeys, a sip will prove its worth. s

This surplus, in addition to a good summer, meant that this year’s Feds did not run into a deficit until the very end of the spring term, much later than usual. The arrival of the fall term with its influx of students has quickly erased that deficit. During the summer, the Feds used their money sparingly and to its best effect. A new patio and new lighting equipment were added to Fed Hall to further increase its appeal. It should be noted as well that the Feds insured at least part of the construction jobs at Fed Hall were given to students. As well, money was spent on radio advertisements to generate more summer business at Fed Hall and the Bombshelter, and to promote the University in general. The University of Waterloo is perhaps the first university in Ontario to utilize radio for promotion. McDermott also vowed to promote and increase the visibility of Federation services like the Graphix Factory. Over the summer, a contest was held to come up with a new and better name for the Federation music store, the winner being, as you see it now, the Music Source. Another effort to promote Fed services and clubs was Fed Fair. During the first week, the various clubs and services were given booths in the Campus Centre from

to offer. The Feds have been making the effort to appear at games and events, and they have booked a steady supply of bands and concerts at both Fed Hall and the Bombshelter. In the future, the Feds intend to go after the staff to get course material printed at the Graphix Factory, and to encourage more student businesses by moving the services in the Campus Centre basement into the, as of yet, unbuilt Student Life Building. A third goal announced by McDermott was the improvement of relations and interaction between Faculties. To achieve this, the Feds have targeted the Faculty Pub Nights. Previously, each faculty got two Pub Nights, one at Fed Hall and one at the Bombshelter. Now, that number has been reduced to one; to get a second, a faculty must collaborate with another faculty. An increase in recycling depots was on McDermott’s@mpaign agenda and work was b\8 n with Patty Cook of Watgr&n.+ enfortunately, other business ‘has forced the recycling plan to be put on the Fed backburner. Also promised was a monthly financial report to be published in Imprint. McDermott now admits, however, that he underestimated the true immensity of this task, as well as the inherently slow nature of university bureaucracy. Bills often cannot b e p r o c e s s e d w i t h i n o n e month’s time. As a result, no financial reports will appear here in Km-

campaign platforms involved student financing, coinciding with the platforms of Dave Martin, and thus havealreadybeenmentionedin this ar title. Sue’s main pla tform, apart from the aforementioned, was the improvementofon-campussafety. She promised more lighting en route to the Columbia townhouses, as well as crosswalks on both Philip and Columbia Streets. The Feds have met with officials downtown, as this is under regional jurisdiction, and will be drafting a proposal for presentation to the city. Many other safety-enhancing programs have already been instituted around the campus, however. With grant money from the Ministry of Colleges and Universities, the first emergency phone has been ifistalled along the Bauer Path, with more phones to come. A new women’s safety pamphlet has been published, and. Uw’s first two bicycle police officers havebecome a rpgular sight on campus. Also in the works is a proposal to urn the Women’s Safety Committee into a regular standing committee. Associate provost, student affairs Peter Hopkins, has pledged his support. AU in all, our Federation executive seem to have put in an incredible amount of work. Besides being accessible and friendly, they are also willing to take the time to answer the questions and concerns of the student body.

Let’s make t# deal by Angela Mulholltmd imprint staff

Remember when you read this on your fee statement at the beginning of the semester and thought it was a program to train people to stop tripping and falling along the pathways of this university? Alas, it was not. It is the first of the seven $lOJXJdeductionstobeseenoneach and every full-time students’ f&e statement over the next two years. Each $10.00 will go to finance the Co-ordinated Plan to Improve the Quality of Student Life at UW. At the end of those two years the fee goes up to $25.00, in an effort to ensure that students who will s t i l l be here and will benefit most from the Plan will be the ones paying the larger chunk of the costs. The Plan encompasses three phases: a new Student Centre that will complement the Campus Centre in providing additional lounge and study space (opening Fall ‘94), a new Physical Recreation Facility {also opening Fall ‘94) to relieve some of the burden on the overcrowded PAC, and finally the Endowment Fund for Student Life Projects. The $10.00 fee this September has gone towards building this fund. “Student Life Projects” are defined as non-academic project ideas s u b m i t t e d b y a n y r e c o g n i z e d student organization (as determined by the criteria set by the Federation of, ,Students), that will benefit as many UW students as possible. First consideration is given- to projects

that will address one or more of the following four priorities: improvement of safety on campus, improvement of accessibility on campus, the renovation of the current campus centre, and the improvement of current lounge and study spaces. Project ideas are presented before the 16-member endowment fund committee, which determines its suitability and feasibility. Groups initiating these projects are required to provide a detailed budget and an implementation timeline to the committee. They are also responsible for +e project’s success and must present a report the following term to keep the committee abreast of their progress. This past summer, the committee received o v e r 3 0 p r o p o s a l s , o f which 17 were approved. Among t h o s e approved are: -- the purchase of $10,000 worth of weightlifting and exercise machines (submitted by the Men’s

A number of these projects are already underway: the weight equipment has been purchased but not delivered. The rest of the projects are expected to be cqmpleted by this summer. The endowment fund c o m m i t tee is now making a call for new project proposals for the Fall semester. The deadline for such p r o posals is October 6,1992 at 4:30 p.m. Submission forms and corresponding guidelines can be picked up in C.C.

United Way 5 Campaign Trail by Renee Ceorrgrrcapoulos I m p r i n t stfl

What has been the highlight of your first week?

by Phil Caskanette special to Im#Wint

-; i :

:

The annual Kitchener-Waterloo and area United Way campaign is now underway with a goal of $3.7 million dollars. The goal is up substantially from last year, reflecting the anticipated demands on the 48 member agencies Many of the agencies are feeling the brunt of economic conditions in the area. More and more people are turning to the agencies for emergency food supplies as their unemployment insurance runs out, and no prospects of employment can be found. The financial stress causes more hardship, in some cases leading to alcohol abuse, and crime. The counselling agencies are overwhelmed with requests for assistance. At ihe same time, the smaller working population means fewer United Way donors, making it difficult to maintain services. It is expected that plant closures in 1993 will add 1,500 people to the unemployment lines and eliminate over $75,ooO in donations to the United Way. What does all this have to do with the University of Waterloo? Well, UW participates in the United Way campaign. Faculty, staff, and students all contribute to the campaign; faculty, staff (both union and non-union), graduate students, and retired employees pledge donations to the United Way through direct canvassing. Undergraduate students help with fundraisers. Heading the United Way camf paign on campus are faculty co-

chair Jim Van Evra of the philoso-

phy department and staff co-chair Phil Caskanette of internal audit, Pat Roberts of personnel is Employee Campaign Director. The rest of the UW United Way Committee consists of Area Coordinators, each responsible for campaign coordination in their faculty or academic support area. The UW campaign goal is set at $150,000, a substantial increase from last year’s total of $123,099. The employee portion of the campaign is expected to raise $140,000 (up from $117,566 in 1992) and achieve a 38 per cent participation rate (from 26.5 per cent in 1991). Participation rat& have been relatively low in the past, and the campaign committee felt it was time UW sent a clear mesSage to the K-W community. The committee needs 500 new donors to pledge $4.50 a month ($1 a week), or whatever they can afford, to show that we care about the less fortunate people inour community. The UW conuni ttee also hopes to raise $10,000 through Grad student pledges and fundraisers sponsored by the Federation of Students and other groups. The Sports Card Convention held at the PAC on Labour Day sponsored by Raytheon Canada and UW has already contributed $3,584 towards the goal. Undergraduates are invited to make direct pledges if they are financially able. Pledge forms are available from Vesna Djokich (3B Math) who i s working with the UW United WayCommitteeastheCampaign Assistant. If anyone has questions, they can contact Vesna at ext. 2493, or call any member of the committee.

Private businesses likeh to oDerate in Studeat Centre

Feds and admin. may combine services Over the course of the summer andcontinuingintothefall, theFederation of Students and the University of Waterloo administration have discussed agreements concerning the Student CeMre. As of yet, few final decisions have been reached, but all parties involved feel that progress is being made. An agreement, or at least a decision on what services will be offered in the Student Centre, has to be reached by the end of October. The main topic of discussion has been about who should operate services in the Centre: the Federation, the University, or even privately-owned commercial services. All parties agree that the main o b j e c t i v e i s i m p r o v i n g s e r v i c e s and meeting needs for students, while maintaining a cooperative relations h i p between the F e d s ’ a n d U n i v e r sity’s businesses. *‘We want to co-exist in a noncompetitive and co-operative manner like we do now,” says associate provost, student affairs Peter Hopkins. Yet, during these ongoing meetings, there have been concerns about what each g r o u p d e s i r e s . In fact, the initial meetings were des c r i b e d a s h a v i n g a t o n e o f suspieion, Discussions concerning “joint ventures” in which theFeds and the University would amalgamate their services soon followed, but both

partiesrecognizedpossibleconflicts betweentheirrespectivebusinesses. The Feds are concerned that the duplication o f b u s i n e s s e s ( s u c h as the Campus Shop/Gift Shop, Graphix Factory/Graphic Services) would lead to the loss of these sources of income. ‘The Feds will not give up any of their businesses at this point,” says Fed president Dave Martin. Both parties deny that the Univer-

“We want tu co-exist in a non-competitive and co-uperutive manner, ‘I sity is interested in a cash grab, despite speculation. Martinsays that the p o s t office may become a University responsibility. Other bones of contention include the proposed convenience store or drug counter and the bookstore. While the Feds are marginally interested in operating the convenience s t o r e , t h e a d m i n i s t r a t i o n feels that the University would be a more suitable choice. Both sides are giving leeway in this discussion and a switching of services (post office, games room) remains a possibility. On the proposed components list for the Student Centre, there is no mention of a bookstore, The administration has raised the possi-

bility of moving their bookstore from its present location in South Campus Hall into the Student Centre. This is still under discussion, but it is clear that the financial responsibility on the shoulders of the University. As it is, there may not be the space available for the bookstore. More conflicts involve the duplication and competition of food services. The popularity of Scoops, a Federation business, may be heightened by a possible expansion or relocation. This does not bode well for the University’s food services department, which is interested in expanding its service all over campus with the new SmartCard. The negative competitive passibilities are endless, but all parties intend to reach an amicable agreement.

The University’s food services department may be creating more c o n t r o v e r s y b y m a k i n g initial contacts with commercial food chains such as Taco Bell and Kentucky Fried Chicken. While these discussions are apparently in the preliminary stages and do not necessarily deal with the Student Centre, these overtures may hinder future negotiations. Ultimately, the University Will decide whether or not to allow private businesses on campus, but the Federation of Students would rather not have any in the Student Centre. This should only become an issue between the Federation and the University if LJW’s food service de-

partment wishes to place private businesses in the Centre. One thing is for sure: whoever operates the services in the Student Centre will generate income that will pay for the operation of the facility. “It isclear that wehave tocome up with some money,” Hopkins says, from the businesses and services to ensure the Student Centre’s upkeep. All of the committees involved in these discussions have had a student majority. The management board of the Student Centre will also have a student majority. Tentatively, this board will consist of one student, three representatives from the Federation, and three University administrators with a separate non-partisan facility manager. The board’s responsibilities will also extend to tie Campus Cenbe. Many original plans for the location of services have changed since the committees began meeting last winter. The health and

wellness clinic, initially intended for t h e S t u d e n t C e n t r e , w i l l m o r e than likely be located in the CC. As well, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce may become the CC’s only basement tenant. Student-directed project chairp e r s o n J o h n teddy h a d stated that the 8,ooO square feet (out of 23,500 total) allocated to social recreation is guaranteed, regardless of which facility will eventually house meeting and club rooms. The number one priority is student space, acc o r d i n g t o Leddy a n d H o p k i n s . As mentioned previously, agreements have to be reached by the end o f O c t o b e r i n o r d e r t o remain o n schedule. The meetings, which are open to all, will continue until then and it remains to be seen if a totally amicable deal will result. The University administration, the Federation, and most importantly the shldent body will have to deal with the ramifications of this agreement.

They say that, in the United States, any little boy can grow up to be president of COUCS~, the chances of such success i n crease exponentially if one happens to have a t e n - f i g u r e bank account H. Ross Perot has reentered the U.S. presidential race. And he is serious, as guys like him usually are. He’s gone to the extent of “quietly spending $16 million to get his name on the ballot in all 50 states,” according to The Globe and Mail. As “Undecided”continuesto run neckand-neckwith RepublicanGeorge Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton in opinion polls for November’s election, it somehow has dawned on Perot that he can cleave out a following from a fickle electorate. Heck, only a few short months ago, Perot personified undecided -- he found a way to appeal to the frustrations of a broad range of Americans. The economy is easy to fix, both parties are full of crooks, and we sure as heck shouldn’t have been dealing arms to Iraqis in the first place. Millions of Americans admired the honesty that allowed Perot to say “I don’t know” i f h e didn’t Perot looked to be at least a spoiler and at most the next president of the United States. Then, it seemed; he figured that he didn’t want to be just a spoiler he wanted to be president Principle was obviously not a reason that he had mn in the fmt place; at the first signs of pressure, the first dips in the polls, he cut his losses and ran. . A heavenly host of political analysts conjectured at the time that Perot was dropping out so that he could run again in I996 with a much h&her chance of success This seemed like a &~r plausible analysis.

Chomsky, turnkeys and the like Perhaps one of the most respected i&llectuals in the United States is a man by the name of Noam Chomsb, He is respected as an intellectual of almost g&like stature on two fronts. He became a professor of linguistics at h&IT at the ripe old age of 27, and is considered by his peers to have laid the groundwork for much of the current study in this field. On t h e s e c o n d a n d p e r h a p s m o r e crucial front, he is a devastating critic of the American government’s foreign policy. No senior government official wiU debate with him in public, and the mainstream press ignore him and his books almost entirely. I’ve seen him on television only once, and that was Dotrahue of all shows. Even then, he was beamed in via satellite to a big screen in the studio for the show’s pretaping and subsequent editing. An accomplished author, he writes books at a rate faster than most of us read t h e m . As a c r i t i c o f A m e r i c a n g o v e r n m e n t actions in general, he is extremely effective, but is praised only in alternative press such as Z Magazine and Rolling Stone. He has sacrificed a great deal in order to bring to the. attention of whoever will listen the various injustices he perceives.

the word bizarre because common sense : woulqi dictate that someone with ti terms experience will be able to carry out her or his duties more efficiently and effectively with theincreased experience. _ Never mind that some of those students weeded out by the imposition of a six-tam limit might have been counting on those jobs this term in order that they be able to eat; the ham-fist has come crashing down. Naturally, it is no longer the pram to automatically hire back turnkeys each term they return - they have to re-apply. The theory is that everyone should be on an In practice, it is easier for the administration to not r&ire people they don’t want working there, regardless of their job performance. Those turnkeys who were silent, you will note, still have their jobs, The noisy ones are known and, I suspect, are prone to receiving “graveyard” shifts, or the bare m i n i m u m o f s h i f t s a v a i l a b l e . Thorns in a system are to be trimmed, not tolerated. M-t of us recognize that silence is generally what propels one upward in the world, but few attempt to challenge this unwritten dictum.

Free to be sad To the editor, In the September fourth edition of Imprint, a letter was published in response to another letter entitled “Camera sad”. The response was in the form of a polite threat, forcing the author of “Camera sad” to apologize for his views by implying that severe action is being taken on behalf of his letter. Perhaps I’m oldfashioned, but that sounds suspiciously like someone is trying to suppress a person’s right to free speech. Although 1 don’t defend Kevin Wherry’s means of getting across his point, I appreciate that he had something to say, right or no, nobody has the justification to ‘urge’ him to apologize for his opinions. It should be known that there exist people, like myself, who find topless demonstrations derogatory, but I certainly won’t request an apology on behalf of demonstrators. , Liam C o r e

He ain’t my brother To the editor,

.

On Friday afternoon, a friend from the Gay and Lesbian Liberation of Waterloo (GLLOW) approached me at the Student Christian Movement (SCM) table. I was there as a representative if the group during “clubs’ day.” He asked me if I had read the latest Imprint, in which SCM’s name was associated with “Brother Jim”, a preacher from the United States. As I hadn’t, I answered “no” and proceeded to get my hands on a copy* 1 read the article and at first just laughed it off, but after a bit of reflection I began to feel angered. I have realized in my two years at the University that not many students know much about, or have even heard of the Student Christian Movement, and I’m concerned that some students may get the wrong impression by seeing our name in conjunction with a preacher who condemns everyone from homosexuals to smokers, and considers university students to b e a high risk group in terms of “going to hell”. As the secretary of the Waterloo chapter of the SCM, I would like it to be made known that I am strongly opposed to the message of “Brother Jim” as reported in the Imprint. Anyone who has attended SCM meetings or events in the past, has come into contact with our Imprint articles and talks on the radio, or has any sort of relationship to our members, caneasily judge for themselves that the spirit of our group and our “message” is in tota! contradiction to the spirit and “message” of “Brother Jim” a.k.a. Jim GiUes. I only wish this preacher did contact me, for I think it would have been quite the conversation/ confrontation. It is difficult to have compassion for people who carry with them such malicious intent with a ‘neurotic gleam in their eye’. But mayl~ “Brother Jim’s” outragkousness only brings to our awareness, and is indicative of, the condition of many, many people in this ‘age of anxiety’ - a world in which the modem day idols are material gain, marketable success, individual security and power over others. If we are sensitive we can see the evils of this modem world which divides itself for war on the basis of religion, class, sex, colour, creed and flag. I speak for myself when I say that maybe “Brother Jim” is merely the most vu&p&en and outrageous example of a large and complex world problem. _ The Student Christian Movement is an Ecumenical, world-wide, student-run movement made up of Christians and nonChristians, who attempt to work within communities to bring about a more just,

compassionate, and peacehI existence for all. I believe that the message of Shalom is integral to the Good News, or Gospel of Jesus Christ. The SCM has attempted to be a witness to that message on Canadian universities for over seventy years. The LJ, of W, chapter continues that tradition this year. Please look for our events and future Imprint articles.

Feminist high horse . To the editor,

In regard to the review of A League of their Own which appeared in the September us,1992 Imprint. To Jennifer EFps, . Please get off your high feminist horse. As you are a writer for the Imprint, and no doubt aspire to literary greatness, I would have expected you to produce a more objective and professional comp’osition. Instead you have let your own personal biases distortlyour writing. I don’t get mad at A Leqpx of h+r Oeun, as you suggest, for “trivializing its subject and wasting its theme”, because its subject and theme are not the denigration and maltreatment of women. Director Penny Marshall portrays a realistic world where men degrade women and don’t take them seriously, and where black women are excluded from most areas of life. These were realities inJ%$3-America, not is&s to be taken up by solne over zealous 1990’s feminist.,, Perhaps <n your tiny little world you see things through your feminist coloured glasses, but the rest of us would rather enjoy A league of tkir Owa as one of the better pieces of entertaining film in the last year. .

Privileged little world ’

To the Editor,

Now that Phillip Che, a campus spokesman for ‘PP’(Politica1 Perplexity) has laid out his confusion in the glossary form (Imprint, 18 September) it’s possible to offer him some advice. Like all PPers, Phillip takes a stand squarely in ‘opposition to capitalism and to Marxism. He borrows from classical Marxism the idea that the capitalist state cannot be reformed. Only a radical new society can liberate humankind. The dilemma for PPers arises when they ponder the means to this end. For the crux of their anti-Marxism is the claim that the working class “no longer exists as s conscious class jn the strug le for social change.” SO it seems that tae only social powers strong enough to carry out such a transformation are big capitalists, religions, and states. Yet these are the very problem. Inevitably, then, PPers trade revolutionary activity for d e s p a i r , r e a l i t y d e n i a l , and-Phillip’s

speciality-just a lot of “talking about it”. .Fortunately, this perspective is wrong as a matter of fact. While its size has declined somewhat in certain ‘advanced’ countries, on a global scale the industrial working class is larger than ever and

con@ues to grow: in Turkey, Egypt, Brazil, South Korea, Xndia, Taiwan, Philippines, Pakistan, Argentina, Thailand, Singapore, China, Iran, Malaysia, and Indonesia,...for example. Moreover, production has grown several times faster than employment, placing sti31 a greater economic power in the hands of the industrial proletariat. In claiming that these workers are not. class-conscious, Phillip emphasizes his grossly parochial world-view. Again, while there were retreats in certain ‘advanced’ countries, the 1980’s saw the emergence and growth of new pobticized labour movements in what was formerly the periphery of the global system: from Solidamosc in Poland, to thekVorkers’ Party in l3razi1, to the Congress of South African Trade Unions and the South Korean labour movement+ With powerful strikes these organizations have demonstrated that those with the power to grind the system to a still have enormous revolutionary potential. If PPers like Phillip would look past the narrow confines of their privileged little world, they could overcome their pessimistic confusion. For despite them, the international working class cannot be denied-and Marxism is more relevant than ever. Bryan Smith :

Animals must die . To the editor,

Upon reading Noel E-iulsmsln’s article concerning cruelty free shopping (Sep tember 18,1992), 1 noticed a misconception that he, as well as .many other people, xern to have. In the artic!e, he stated “, . . use of ccl and tissue cultu:es and computer modelling have completely rt>nd& obsolete any of the economic or safety “justifications” so often used to rationalize animal experimentation . . .‘I . Unfortunately, we are no where near being able to turf all animal research and rely on cell and tissue culture systems to replace it. Cell and tissue culture systems are very useful tools that are being experimented with but arc not yet able to totally replace animal systems. These methods need to be tested in conjunction with live animal systems until cell and tissue culture systems can be accurately validated. 1 realize that some methodologies can be cruel (LDSO, Draize Test) but until other methods for assessing toxicity are developed and tested, these animal tests will need to be continued. Although there are constant advances in scientific technology, there may never be a time in which we can cease all animal testing. Certain embryological studies, mutagenicity studies and drug metabolism studies may be impossible to conduct accurately without the use of whole animal studies. Whole animal studies can prove very important in predjcting the actions of cktain compounds when they are exposed to humans and other animals. Not conducting sufficient types and numbers of animal tests with regards to some chemicals GUI have disastrous consequences (thalidomide disaster to the 1960’s in which pregnant women took thalidomide as a sedative which resulted in babies being born with limb abnormalities.) I understand the overall point of your article and 1 feel for you. I really do. I don’t think that animals should have to suffer SO that I can use a shampoo that doesn’t make my eyes sting or use an oven cleaner that isn’t hard on my skin. But, on the other hand, I also feel that certain types of research is very important. Maybe, someday, we will be able to assess the toxicity of chemicals without having to make any animals suffer. And maybe, will be able to assess the long term effects of certain manmade products without having to use a single animal, But, it is important to realize that we have not yet reached that point and it may be a long time until we do.

Feminisf

Frameworks

Slick, hard-core images .I The ideal of perfect feminine beauty, as offered to us by advertising agencies, is not *only harmful, but dangerous for a variety of reasons. First, by giving women a projected image to strive for, the advertisers are telling girls and young women that they are unacceptable as is. This ideal plays a part in hacki n g away what confidence can be b u i l t b y a woman in a world built around the iqportance o f m e n . The advertisedfemale idea also sets all wumen up for failure befure they even begin. It is not possible to do away with imperfect bone structures, pores and skin imperfections, miscellaneous flaws and incidental hair growth. A life built on pursuing superficial perfection, as presented in international advertising, would be a disappointing journey. The paragon is unattainable, even for the models who appear in the ads. The advertisers are in the midst of a vicious battle for more of the cosmetic market. Women are used as expendable footsoldiers in the war. Everywhere there is pressure to spend more of our already reduced paycheques on products that pay enormous dividends to those ‘who exploit us. These untruths serve only the advertiser. In the bargain, the advertiser and agency conspire to warp the perception of reality. As a result, children diet and eating disorders have become more common. Dissecting the body of a woman in advertising encourages women to think of themselves in pieces; flawed, insignificant, and unconnected pieces. The expression “divide and conquer” cdmes to mind when I see ads that show women as itemized parts. Dissecting women into perfectly airbrushed, professionally lit parts is harmful because it reinforces women as objects to be moulded and crafted into something more acceptable. Women are perpetuated as accessories for men, and therefore not as important, or interesting, as men. Margaret Trudeau and Mila

Mulroney were often described as “accessories” in print by male journalists, but not Dennis Thatcher. The ads are slick, hard-core, manipulative, high-pressure images; nothing is presented by accident. It is profitable to advertisers and agencies to keep the “Cinderella syndrome” alive. Some ads assure us that if we buy their product repeatedly, Prince Charming will arrive and loneliness will end. Buying products will not solve problems for women. It is necessary to recognize emotionally manipulative ads for what they are. Advertisers want to keep alive the illusion that we can only “acquire” a man by seducing him with our new-and-Qmproved appearance. We often see and hear that our exterior is our most important asset. This is a horrendous lie to project to young women in order to increase the profit margin of the already wealthy and powerful. Dissection of female body parts in advert i s i n g has the tendency t o desensitize people with uncomfortable social consequences. When the needs of women get trivialized in advertising, their feelings, potential, and importance gets trivialized as well. In this way, the entire woman is presented as an insignificant and unimportant secondary person and reinforces that her opinions and efforts are also without value. In this way her right to personhood is in jeopardy, the quality of her future and her earning potential is compromised. Advertising that trivializes women’s needs also d,amages the potential for compassion, dialogue and meaningful change. Advertising that shows women as emptyheaded but firm, thin, erotic, provocative, sensual, sultry, aloof, and blonde prolongs the process toward equality for women. Equalitycanbe legislated, printed, anddistributed, but it cannot happen until men think artd feel equality for women. The less actively we call the advertisers on their lies, the greater and more easily desensitising are the lies that follow. This is why we must pay attention to advertising, and respond accordingly.

In search of lost meanina -_--

by PhiUip Chee The angst-ridden time I spent, deciding whether to buy a book, surprised me. Normally, if I want a book, I’ll buy it. But I already had the complete collection of Proust’s major work. So why did I want another set of volumes? I guess the design of this newly republished hard cover caught my eye. It was beautiful. However, there were a number of things that held me back from plopping down $22 for a single volume. I would have to buy five of them to have the whole work, now accurately translates as In Search of Lost Time, figuratively A la recherche du tenzps perdu. Why should I succumb to an obvious money-making scheme by the publisher, I asked myself. At $22 they probably aren’t going to sell too many copies of a book most readers wouldn’t evenconsider picking up -- it’s half a million words! My Penguin paperbacks sold as three volumes at $17 each. Five for $22 is a ransom at any wage. (Lucky for me only the thirst two volumes of the new series sat on the shelf.) So, what. did I ultimately appeal to since I b o u g h t the b o o k s ? I r e a l i z e d h o w much I loved books just for the aesthetic quality of them. Not because this particular work was valuable per se, rare, or costly, did I want them. No, it was because of the beauty of its wholeness in my hands. It was like a work of art. Admittedly, this doesn’t seem like a good reason. And granted, the craftsmanship used in producing this bookis almost negligible inasmuch as modern printing techniques go. (The creative control that is available in desktop publishing, I don’t have the space to argue here, but it is an interesting topic for discussion.)

--

Most assuredly this book was massproduced, assembly-lined, and anonymously packaged commodity, To some, my purchase may look like a mindless, consumptive act. A bourgeois conceit. Yet I think of it as an act of communion with Reason and Mind. A rediscovery of meaning in a world that has lost its meaning. A human world that no longer senses its own place in the Nature of Things. Such a distasteful image isn’t Nature as a collection of Things. This is a reflection of our instrumental rationalism that denies the subjectivity of nature and reduces it to a mere “natural resource,” Since the Industrial Revolution, the devolution of Reason into mere rationalism has helped capitalist expansion emerge from western ,Europe and complete its colonization of human nature* Not only human nature in the Third World, but also within the developed world. With the full emergence of the State, its bureaucracies, and erstwhile in tension wit absolute monarchs and their armies, an insidious domestication of humanity has expanded to domesticate nature itself. And with modem science, a method of achieving this enterprise was complete. The nuclear armamentorium and the recombinant DNA bacteria are but the symbols of modern rationalism. Like M., I search longingly for lost time. Time lost as history closed off by a history of domination and hierarchy. Time lost so that its recovery might let the true natural history of the world begin anew. The remembrance of Proust is that highest mimesis of mind and nature are called art. An organic wholeness of speculative thought that imparts meaning to the human condition. All this for $22.

The newest addition to my humble abode is a satellite system. .The sheer number of stations available is staggering - too many to monitor at once, in any case. Believe me: I’ve tried.

T believe Stern’s s h o w t o b e the m o s t o u t r a g e o u s a n d funniest talk show on cable, simply because of Stem’s irreverence and lack of concern for what he calls “the fucking Nielsens. I mean, who are these people? I don’t want a family who made The Beverly HilIbiZlies a No. 1 show for two seasons to even Iuok at my show. It’s pearls before fucking pigs, man.” On one recent show, Stem had as guests fitness guru Richard Simmons and two former chubbies who had lost a bazillion pounds on Simmons’ Deal-a-Meal program.

Too cool* Another consistently entertaitig feature of Satellite television is overseas reception. BBC2 often comes in late at night, as does NHK Tokyo. Seeing popular American sitcoms dubbed into otper languages is a sobering experience. Hogan’s Heroes in Japanese is a contender for Be&Formerly-HighlyRated-American-Sitcom-that-Loses-Something-in the-Dubbing. A show about a Nazi prison camp being so popular in a country that still hunts whales is somehow ominous. Hogan-sari’s Weroes, though, cannot compare with a recent viewing experience.

Prof struggles with -anti-Semitism by Sue Forrest lmprlnt stu# Walking along King Street in Kitchener a few weeks back, Jeffrey Shallit was shocked to discover a poster in a store window promoting a speech denying the Holocaust. A s s u m i n g t h e o w n e r of European Sound Imports was ignorant of the speakers’ anti-Semitic politics, Shallit approached Michael Rothe, s t o r e o w n e r a n d s p e e c h s p o n s o r . Rothe was adamant that David Irving -the featured speaker -- would speak only about Germany. Shallit challenged Rothe, stating that the poster itself said Irving would tspeak on the Holocaust. At this point Rothe w a n t e d n o f u r t h e r d i a l o g u e . Shallit i n f o r m e d Rothe that he would be picketing the store, and he did. Jeffrey Shallit is an associate professor of computer science at UW. Both the door and walls of his office sport posters from Banned Books Week 1992: “Censorship: Old Sins in New World.” An adamant advocate of free speech, Shallit belonged to the American Civil Liberties Union and is seeking to join the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.

german and wonder about them that is my own problem. This is not about Germanbashing...1 think that stereotyping people because they have a german accent and calling them a Nazi is exactly as bad as this guy Rothe. is doing. It is just another form of racism - not acceptable.”

Free speech and Irving Shallit had heard of Irving before sighting the poster. He had followed discussions of “revisionist history” posted to on the UW news groups, in which several people had wished to discuss Irving and his views. Shallit has since spent a lot of time in the library researching Irving, Shallit discovered Irving was charged with libel and forced to pay 40,000 pounds in damages for the contents of one of his first books, published in 1971. Reports of the case revealed: “Irving knew that it was libel, knew the statements were false but deliberately calculated that he w o u l d m a k e more m o n e y b e c a u s e o f i t s o u t r a g e o u s c o n clusions and the money would easily pay for the cost of any libel judgement.”

which prohibited anyone from howingly producing information they knew to be false. Ernst Zundel won his appeal by arguing that his constitutional right to freedom of speech had beendenied. Zundel hadbeenprosecuted for producing pamphlets which denied that the holocaust had actually ocurred. S e v e r a l groups are now lobbying the government to press charges of promoting hatred against Zundel. Imprint: “Do you agree with the Supreme Court decision that supported that Ernst Zundels constitutional rights had been abridged?” Shallit: “1 think that Mr. Zundel is a contemptible little man and I despise him and everything he stands for but he does have the right to speak, and coming from the U.S. (myself) which has a very strong tradition of free speech I feel that like the false news law and the hate law are n o t g o o d ideas because they could be applied to lots of things which would not normally be considered hatred and the result m i g h t b e a b a d o n e . ” The provincial government has received complaints about Rothe’s posters, and

A U.S. citizen and a Canadian landed i m m i g r a n t , Shallit grew up in a Philadelphia c o m m u n i t y a b o u t one-third Jewish. He was raised Episcopalian; his father is Jewish. Both his parents were in World War II, though n e i t h e r o f t h e m s a w a c t i o n i n E u r o p e . Shallit has lived in Kitchener for three years, just a few blocks from the postered windows of European Sound Imports.

Protests in Kitchener Shallit: When I saw that [the posters] . . . I felt like suddenly Kitchener had been ruined for me. I had this illusion of Kitchener being a happy, multi-cultural city all living in relative harmony. . . to see this in a store, to think this guy hates Jews, this guy would have hated my father only for the reason he is Jewish . +. now when I hear people s p e a k i n g G e r m a n , o r I g o i n t o a G e r man store 1 wonder are they anti-Semitic too, do they subscribe to these beliefs? Now clearly the majority of Germans don’t . . . the only thing that made me feel better about it was when the R e c o r d announced this little rally outside of the store and we had everybody come, and not just Jews . . . there were lots of Germans, there were Poles, there were people from all ethnic groups. That made me feel a lot better - to think that this just really truly is a small minority. The majority of people in Kitchener don’t feel this way.” Imprint: “What was the response of onlookers to protests outside European Sound Imports?“ Shallit: “ T h e m a j o r i t y of them were supportive. Somepeople were extremely hostile. One person yelled at me ‘you Jews are the cause of all evil in the world’ - she had something to do with the store. The same woman said earlier that I should be in a concentration camp.’ A young man who started off by saying *you are misguided’ . . . we got to talking and he acknowledged that he thought the holocaust was greatly exaggerated.” Imprint: “Other than at the protest, have you experienced any backlash for standing up and opposing someone elses comments?” Shallit: “I had no harassing phone calls. The only sort of down side was a co-worker of German descent who expressed to me concerns about how this will affect germans. I think this is a legitimate worry. She said for example that her husband had been called a Nazi because he asked someb o d y t o m o v e t h e i r c a r f r o m i n f r o n t of his driveway, I absolutely condemn that as strongly as possible. This is not about German-bashing, this is about a small group of people, in particular this one guy on King Street who is anti-Semitic and is not afraid to put it in his window and this is not an indictmenton thewholeGermancommunity.When I said earlier I look at people who speak

Shalli t: “Irving is dangerous for two reasons. He appears respectable - for example you can dial i n t o the (LJW) l i b r a r y computer and find that the library has 13 books by Irving so the average person thinks ‘aha, he’s written 13 books, they’re at the library of the University of Waterloo, he must really have something to say, and not just be idle chatter . . . [and secondly] he has been speaking to large crowds of neo-Nazi’s in G e r m a n y i n which h e e n c o u r a g e s t h e m , f o r example he s a y s y o u r n u m b e r s w i l l d o u b l e and double in the next few years.” Shallit emphatically states “I don’t want to prevent him [Irving] from speaking. . s his right to speak should not be denied,” though he adds “Irving is not a historian. . . he is actually a rather vicious an&Semite. . . he comes to stir up hatred against Jews.” Shallit: “The right to speak means that in public forums, he can not be denied the right to speak, for example if he goes to Speaker’s Comer the police can’t come and drag him off to jail for what he says; it doesn’t mean that a private individual is obligated to provide a forum for ML Irving” Irving is scheduled to speak at a hotel in Milton later thissfqll. Since Michael Roethe is paying for Irving’s transportation from England, Irving will also make an appearance at Rothe’s Kitchener store. Shallik “Freedom of speech works both ways: Mr. Irving has the right to speak and I have the right to stand in front of the store that’s sponsoring the talk and say I object to Mr. Irving’s views”

Constitutional Lies Late in August, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down our “false news” law

requests to prosecute Rothe for spreading hate propaganda. Shallit is not interested in banning the posters, and stated that “he wouldn’t be happy if that were the tactic used”; Shallit also does not support Zundcl being prosecuted under the hate laws. Imprint: "In what ways do you feel Zundel should b e required to take responsibility for what he publishes, for what he says?” “He could be tried for Shallit: libel. . . if he incites people to riot. . +but one of the principles of a free society is that unpleasant opinions, even lies, need to be tolera t e d . . . so by picketing I’m not trying to keep the guy out/shut him up, I’m trying to say I know it’s a lie. I have documentation that he lied and I’m trying to educate people about the motives or goals these people have. For example, Irving doesn’t say ‘I hate Jews’ but all you have to do is read some of the things he says to see that’s what is behind it.” Shallit: “reasonable people who k n o w n o t h i n g a b o u t t h e s t o r y w i l l b e convinced by the truth”

Neo-Nazi- Network? Imprint: ‘Do you see any links between people like Irving and Zundel, and the politics of Germany in the 493Os?” Shallit: “I’m not a historian so I can‘t answer that with any authority. Yes’ certainly there are similarities. Let m e j u s t talk about what Rothe has up in his store w i n d o w : Rothe has put up some anti-semitic propaganda due to a guy named Eustis Mullen who is one of the most vicious anti-Semites on the face of the earth. Mullen among other things has said ihat the polio virus is a secret

plot by Jews to kill off Christians. This is right out of the mouth of Julius Strycker who edited this anti-Semitic magazine...in the ’30s. It is unbelievable stereotyping, race hatred, Jews are behind all ideological ills, the monetary crisis, exactly the same theme.” Imprint: “Do you see Irving, Mullen, Zundel, and supporters like Rothe as part of any larger movement?” Shallit: “Certainly part of a larger movement. Absolutely no question about it. I have been told, and I have no way to verify this . . . Rothe h a s a m a i l i n g l i s t o f several hundred neo-Nazis. If you look at the kind of literature he sells there is definitely a network of people. Zundel was at the store just two weeks ago, apparently half an hour after I left the protest Zundel came out of the store. So we have links with Zundel, Irving, Rothe, he has this stuff from Mullen, he sells t h e L e u c h t e r r e p o r t . A l l t h e s e g u y s are definitely connected by more than just their shared views. There is some sort of organization going on here. I feel absolutely sure of it.” Imprint: “It seems to be that these people aren’t denying that Jews died in concentration camps, they’re denying the magnitude. They seem to be going towards whether or not this was usual warfare or particularly venomous warfare against Jews. What do you see the point of this being?.” Shalli t: “Well it’s pretty insidious and clever, 1 think, and it’s something they’ve been doing for a while. The idea is to plant doubt about the basically uniformly accepted account that approximately six million Jews died in concentration camps, and there was a concerted plan, a direct plan to g a s them to death and to remove Jews from Europe. Now all you need to do if someone has a little bit of difficulty accepting that -- as for example I imagine a lot of ethnic Germans do..it must be a terrible thing for people of German descent to think that their countrymen could be responsible for such a thing -all you have to do is say it wasn’t really 6, see this historian says 5.1, this historian says 3.2, so it wasn’t really 6. Now you have a seed of doubt planted. The goal for them is to sow these seeds of doubt amongst people who don’t want to believe it, don’t know much about it, and then once they’ve done that it’s like the creationists, suddenly it’s legitimate to discuss it. Equal time, let them have their point of view. The point is the evidence is so completely overwhelming that millions of people were gassed to death that no one could possibly give this other point of view any credibility.“.

Antidote is Free Ardent in his defense of the right to free speech, Shallit loosely quoted Hume: “would the earth really be poor if any particular person were shut up and silenced. . yes. I agree with that with my mind if not always with my heart,” Shallit also commented on a more practical apprpoach to preserving rational disccurse. l

. Shallit: “The only antidote is education of all kinds: encouraging people to read, encouraging people (to go to school, encouraging people to go to college, encouraging people to meet people of o t h e r races, read the newspaper, understand articles, it’s self-servingbecauser’manuniversityprofessor but I think that’s really the goal.” Not a m e m b e r o f a n y o r g a n i z a t i o n which is focusing on this issue, Shallit was recentlycontactedbytheRaceRelationsCommittee of Kitchener and has agreed to help organize an evening to commemorate victims of the Holocaust on November 14, the same evening Irving is scheduled to speak in Milton. He stresses the importance of such a parallel event -epitomizing the politic ShalIit prefers, to educate rather than denigrate. Shallit expects local, provincial and national government speakers, ats WA a3 Holocaust survivors, and members of different faiths to speak at the event.’ He commented that it “evolved out of the protest -trying to make some positive statement”.

Warriors maul Western in season debut by Keith Peck imprint sports

The demons that kept Water100 try-less in league play last year were banished early as the rugby Warriors scored three consecutive tries on their way to a 17-7 victory over Western to open the season

Tomorrow, Saturday, September 26, will see the eager Warriors team face the reputedly large Toronto Varsity Blue Meanies, who were thrashed by an impressive McMaster Marauder squad 41-5 to open their season. Kickoff will be at 1 p.m. on the Columbia Field pitch, just north across Columbia Street from the Vl residences. The Warriors also have a rare Wednesday night game this coming week on the evening of September 30. Any hardy individuals who make the trip to see the game should be aware that kick-off is at the University of Guelph under the lights at 8 p.m. The 15 members selected to play for the varsity team against Western last Saturday consisted of the eight forwards: loose-head prop John Maddigan, hooker Dean Percy, tight-head prop Sand;0 Bassanese, second-row Kirk Schutz and Michael Temi, openside flanker Keith Peck, blind-side flanker Rick Schnurr, and numbereight (C) Greg Laycock.

A line-out forms at the spot along the sideline where the ball crosses out of play. When a team either kicks or carries the ball into “touch,” theopposite team gets the advantage of throwing theballbackintotheline o u t , t h e exception to the rule being that if a team l@ks the ball into t o u c h f r o m t h e m a r k o f a pena@, they wili retain the advantage to return the ball into play. The teams usually f o r m into two parallel lines a me&e apart and between f o r w a r d p l a y e r s . A t l e a s t two players of each team must be on their lines up to a maximum of seven. (The team throwing in the ball gets to decide.) A quick line-out m a y a l s o be taken immediately to catch another team off guard so it is important to form the line-out quickly if the other team has possession for the throw-in. In this w e e k ’ s g a m e , t h e lineout plays were very<loppy and not wortig p r o p e r l y f o r e i t h e r t e a m . The desire to win seemed to s h o w more in the Warrior forwards as they came up with the bouncing ball much more frequently than did Western. As time in the first half progress& the speed and playing skills that had been drilled into the Waterloo team through hard practice began to show. Since Waterloo perennially has a relatively smaller sized g r o u p o f f o r w a r d s , t h e l o o s e forwards, especially Rick Schnurr and Greg hycock, w e r e r e s p o n s i ble for closing down the potentially dangerous back row plays from the strum that a physically large teams like Western can employ. Well into the half, Waterloo

controlled a strum from midfield and the ball was passed quicklyout to, Fq$@ip.~~~ ;h$-& up the wing. Heb a c k i n s i d e t o Keit r Peck who had chased in quick support from the strum. The attack was momentarily stopped inside the Western 22metre line when the second phase play got the ball to Sandro Bassanese, who rambled ahead until forced out of bounds two metres short of the try-line. The poor play selection of the opposition then became evident as Western called for a shortened twoman line-out, and then threw the ball in short. (Trust me, this is not a safe play near a goal line.) Mike

Terni intercepted the throw and crashed forward to score Waterloo’s first try of the new season, and opened up the scoring at 5-O. Castilho’s attempted conversion from near the sideline and into the wind just missed. T h e W a r r i o r s s e t up t o r e c e i v e Western’s dropkick fromcentre but asunnybreakcausednormallysurehanded John Maddigan to loose sight of the kick he had called for. The Waterloo pack quickly grabbed up the loose ball that was then passed out through the backs to once again attack the Western wings. The drive continued to swing rapidly from one sideline to the other, until a Western penalty for diving on top of a Warrior-controlled ruck g a v e a n o t h e r c h a n c e f o r a penalty goal. This time, the ball was about 30 metres out and to the right. Castilho’s kick soared high and had plentyofdistance,butitwasjudged to have bent wide around the right post. The half ended with the Warriors retaining their 5-O lead. Well-rested and eager to s h o w their abilities in the second half, the Waterloo backs charged into the Western players looking for Warrior support to pass to. The backs often found themselvesstill upright and beyond their fallen tacklers so they kept running, with Western needing a second or third man to stop the hard-to-slow-down Warriors. Relentless pressure soon found the play inside the Western 22. A hard tackle off the back of a ruck by Keith Peck took the strum-half to ground. Derek Featherstone scooped up the loose ball, ran past a defender and then squeezed into the end zone between two other would-be tackleT to score the Warriors’ second try. Castilho missed the convtiion to leave the score at W a t e r l o o 1 0 , W&em 0.

Ch+artier can set record versus. Stangs

UW aets rough win over worst team

by Peter Brown imprint spor2s

This youngOUAA footballseason has provided more than a few surprises. First off, who would have thought that the York University Yeomen could play defence? Well, they did, despite losing to the Waterloo Warriors 26-11 at Seagram Stadium last Saturday. Waterloo evened its record at l-1 while dropping York to O-2.

Watedtm 26, York 11

Even more surprising, the University of Western Ontario Mustangs, who visit here tomorrow, have dropped two consecutive games with their32-24 h o m e o p e n e r loss to the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks (2-O). The Hawks have solidified their number-one national ranking with the win, while the ‘Stangs are O-2 for the first time since 1975; the last season in which they lost two games was 1984. In Hamilton, the McMaster University Marauders (2-O) upset the University of Guelph Gryphons (l-1) 17-11, while the University of Toronto Varsity Blu+ (2-O) travelled down the 401 to blank the listless Lancers of the University of Windsor (O-2) 37-O.

Mustangs have dropped from the charts. But don’t think that Warrior

head coach Dave “Tuffy” Knight is as tickled as the rest of us about Western’s fall from grace. “They will be an angry foe tball team on Saturday,” Knight says. “Being O-2 is not going to sit very well with them. But they are still a difficult team to defence because they can mix the run and the pass so well.” Knight acknowledges that this year’s version of the ‘Stangs is not the dominant team of the past, but he cautions that they are still a good football team, good enough to win tomorrow if the Warriors continue their inconsistent offensiveperformante. Against York last Saturday, inconsistency plagued the Warrior offence. Quarterback Steve Bennet completed only 4 of his 16 pass attempts, for 55 yards. I “It seems that we’ll run two

good plays and then run two bad ones,” says Knight. “We’re not a big-play kind of team. With our offence, we have to be consistent to score. We haven’t been able to put together too many IO or 12-play drives so far this se&on.” The good news was that Waterloo’s running game finally got on track, with tailback Tom Chartier rushing 21 times for 134 yards and one score. T h e o t h e r Warrior touchdown was a 23-yard scamper by Bennet. Place-kicker Rick Gunther led the team in scoring with three field goals, two converts, and one rouge. Rookie wideowt Adrian Thorne led the scant receiving ledger with two catches for 31 yards. Wide receiver Kent Willmore and Chartier caught one each, for 26 and minus2 yards respectively.

imprint s p o r t s The University of Waterloo’s Athena varsity tennis team travelled to Kingston to compete against Queen’s and McMaster Universities on Saturday, September 19.

Football team gets by York, waits for Western Continued from page 15 Despite the r e l a t i v e l y l o w output of the offence (only 238 net yards) and i t s inconsiste&y, there was a big piece of good news as well: the dearth of Waterloo mistakes: only one fumble and no interceptions. In week one against Toronto, if you recall, Waterloo turned the ball over eight time. The tale of the game was again W a t e r l o o ’ s defence, which limited Y o r k t o 2 1 8 y a r d s i n t o t a l offence. The secondary held the opposition’s completion percentage to below 50 per cent for the second consecutive week. And again, defensive backs Kirk Witter and Torberne Williams each snared an interception. This defensive performance came without the services of veteran Warrior linebacker Andy A l l e n , w h o served a one-game suspension f o r a n o b j e c t i o n a b l e c o n duct penalty at th” end of an exhibition game against the Carleton University Ravens in Ottawa. A UW athletics department appeal of the suspension had allowed Allen to play in the season opener versus the University of Toronto, but the OUAA enforced the suspension for last Saurday’s game. Waterloo’s secondary continued to be dominating against the Yeomen, with starting pivot Parry Apostolopoulos completing 7-19 for 79 yards and Marcello Lio, who came in for some middle relief, finishing 7-13 for 76 yards. Both QBs threw an interception. As usual, wide receiver P. J. Edgeworth was the Yeomen’s go-to man, snaring six passes for 74 yards and returning one kickoff for 31 yards. Tailback Neil Denton rushed 17 times for 73 yards and York‘s only touchdown. Waterloo led by a scant 6-4

rRugby Warriors have tough schedule this week and the rookie continued to play in the game. (Lewis later went to the hospital where he received seven stitches.) The Warrior backs then exacted some revenge by demonstrating to Western how the plays were meant to be run. Another Western penalty gave kicker Cast&o his fourth scoring opportunity. He missed again and Western touched the ball down to get a drop-kick at their 22. The Waterloo forwards caught and set up to move the ball to.

continued from page 14 From the Western kickoff, the Warriors began another drive as every player-was hungry to make outstanding plays while Western played hard defensively to keep the score of the game close. In a rare mix up between the centres, Simon Lewis was taken down hard by a purple demon and was slow to get up. Excellent work by the rugby training staff bandaged up a large cut on Lewis’ chin

Featherstone, who relayed the ball out to the backs. The play moved across to the far sideline and a series of line-outs. A Western miscue gave the Warriors the chance for a strum. This time, centre Steve Keith dummied a pass to Lewis and accelerated through the Western defense near the 22. Lewis then veered hard right and beat the chasing defense to score the Warrior’s third try in the comer. Castilho finally made good on this, the most difficult kicking opportunity, to show the potential he has in his magic boots, and made the score 17-O. (The team will be hoping that Castilho will redeem himself by showing some extraordinary kicking in future games.) What happened next was the cause of a large amount of lecturing to the Waterloo team from forward coach Derek Humphreys. Mental lapses led to a series of poor Waterloo plays that resulted in the Warriorsbeing pushed todefendthesurging Western team, Two consecutive penalties brought Western into range to kick a penalty goal, but their effort into the wind fell short across the frpnt of the post. The Warriors cleared the zone with a strong punt and exchanged a few kicks, until Western got a second wind and charged up the wing. The Waterloo backs stopped the break short of the goal but the Western forwards beat their Warrior counterparts to support the play. Theball was thenswung wide to the opposite wing and driven over the line to score against the

outnumbered defenders, Western converted the try and brought the score to where it remained for the end of play at Waterloo 17, Western 7. In the second game, those playerswhowerereadyassubstitutions to varsity players in case of injury and the majority of players not named to the varsity team got an opportunity for some hands-on experience and the chance to also show their skill.

The junior varsity team was handled a humbling 21-3 luss.

.

Unfortunately the Western drawing population showed. (Must be their football team cuts.) Our Warrior junior varsity team was handed a humbling 21-3 loss to the Western seconds. The lone bright spot for Waterloo in the second game came as Ashley Richards made a long penalty kick to keep the score close at the half at 7-3 for Western. After the games, head coach Glenn Harper was ‘disappointed with the collapses that took place Late in the Warriors’ games. He hoped that stronger conditioning in the third week of practice will correct this problem Harper also felt that, if the Waterloo varsity team had executed correctly on penalties and had not let up, they could have potentially shut out the preseason favourites for the group 30-O.

Manifest Destiny .

Saturday, September 19

by Dave Fisher lmprlnt stuff

This past Saturday’s 54-40 performance was the best Fed Hall show I’ve seen since last spring’s unforgettable marquee featuring Quebec’s Voivod. Unlike the shocking and woeful lack of support found at that time, however, this show was packed. But then 54-40’s from V a n c o u v e r - not la belle p r o v i n c e - and I don’t believe any of them are cyberpunk revolutionaries. Perhaps it’s a political thing. Or rather that 54-40 are

simply one of Canada’s best bands. In the face of an audience that looked disarmingly like excited Melrose Place extras at a Danny Ro’malotti gig, (minus the cigarette l i g h t e r s ) , 54-40’s performance was all the more remarkable and, indeed, of sufficient force to both secure their acclaim and justify their popularity. Despite my reservations about 54-40’s position in the pantheon of Canadian v i d e o - r o c k , (where they’ve arguably furnished most of their popularity from), there can be no denying the band’s strong sense of melody and rhythm, nor their fans wild enthusiasm. Accordingly, 54-40 paced their performance well by playing their familiar tunes -“Baby Ran”,

“Miss You, ” “I Go Blind,” “One Gun,” “One Day In Your Life,” etc., ew a l m o s t f r o m t h e b e g i n n i n g a n d throughout their generous and tight set. In this fashion, both neophytes and fans were treated to an impressive string of hits without ever getting bored. Not that leader Neil Osborne, (no relation to Ozzy), should ever permit them the chance. fellow Along with Vancouverite Art Bergman, Osbomeisoneofthemostenigmatic of contemporary Canadian rock stars. His nonchalant, sarcastic, and cynicalveneerhasalwaysendeared him to some and put off others.You can include me in the former, nevertheless the Osborne one receives in concert is surprisingly congenial, charming, and inoffensive. One suspects it might have something to do with the soothing effect of an avalanche of burning

incense emitting from the band’s keyboards. Regardless, 54-40’s disposition is a pleasant one. After employing their hits for the main performance, 54-40 defied.predictability and played an inspired encore. Or so was dutifully sniffed out by crack Imprint scoophound Lance Manion. Since I was one of many, by that t i m e , o r d e r i n g b e e r s , b u m m i n g cigarettes andgentiaily scoping the tennis crowd* I missed their covers of the Vaseline’s “Molly’s Lips” (no relation to the Beachcombers’ theme) and Patti Smith’s “Ghost Dance.” In any case, the evidence appears to confirm 54-40’s status as one of the most intelligent and tasteful bands Canada possesses. Alas, an intelligence, taste, and audience capacity Fed Hall could only do with a little more o f and Voivod might someday dream about.

What else did you expect? “That’s a Man” and ‘This is a Rock Song” with the usual exuberance a familiarbandcanelicitwithsomany familiar songs. Things moved quickly along witha few kicksatbandslike “Cowb o y J u n k i e s ” a n d t h e n tie lack o f WLU audience enthusiasm. Everybody was really into it as we came around to “Easy to Tame,” “I’m a Wild Party,” and “Patio Lanterns” as a testimonial to the numerous Kim Mitchell concerts witnessed over the years. Finally at about 22:30, after energetic renditions of “Ready, Willing and Able” and “Go for a Soda,” the concert came to a close but not before the standard encore which consisted solely of “Rock and Roll Duty.”

Kim Mitchell Mark Wood F e d Hall Thursday, September 17 by Scott Carson hprht Staff

Kim Mitchell, in the middle of a Canadian university campus tour, is entertaining the same way he has been for years. Classics were the order of the day at Fed Hall as : %IitcheIl fans got the show everybody is used to and havenow come to expect from an old standby. The opening act, Mark W o o d , featured the talents of what could be the worlds first Hqavy Metal violinist. Mark Wood is obviously a Lfry talented musician with accomplishments ranging from composing CBS’ 1992 Olympic sound score to inventing the six and nine-string, fretted, double-necked electric vialilih. So what is the Juilliardtrained virtuoso doing degrading his art to the level of Metal? Unknown. The crowd didn’t seem to know either. His &osen material was mostly original and unknown with the ex-

ception of “Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix and “Revolution” by the Beatles, b o t h o f w h i c h g o t a f a i r l y good response. Otherwise they failed to get the crowd rewed up for the headline. As soon as they were done you could hear “We want Kim” chanted b r i e f l y , a n d t h e n silence. Kim Mitchell took the stage at about 11:UO to the u p r o a r i o u s adu-

lation of the many assembled Metal Heads. The concert was basically a ‘ b e s t o f ’ s o r t of deal, with samples of his most popular tunes, but weighted toward his last album. The stage presence of this well- travelled band was far superior to their opening act, as proved by the unsolicited audience participation. They opened the show with high energy performances of songs such as

This performance looked as thoughit was done a thousand times only changing the words to fit the audience they happened t o be playing to. Perhaps Kim is a little old (no doubt his music is) to give an authentic and innovative show every

time. Still, it was a standard K i m Mitchell concert and all Kim Mitchell fans should be satisfied with the same old rehashed material.

I feared for my Me. Just one of those days I suppose when you really, really think the end of the world is nigh, when all the signs are there, you think that the human race has just used up all of its time on earth and we’re just about to get sucked up into a mammoth vomitous hole which we’ve dug for ourselves in all our inanity and insanity. A Thursday with a concert lined u p j u s t l i k e a n y o t h e r T h u r s day with a concert lined up and so I get allhyped (because if you don’t you don’t (usually) enjoy the concert), well as hyped as I can because I’m going to see Johnny Rotten (I refuse to play his little game and call him Lydon) and PiL with all of their great songs like “Rise”, “This is not a Love Song”, “Disappointed” and of “Public Image”. Great, I thhk. T h e p r o b l e m s s t a r t w i t h a rum o w ( a s t h e y a l l t o o o f t e n do) that Public Image is going on first, before the opening band. Well fine, that’s great, get home a little early and not have to see some shitty o p e n i n g b a n d , a n d p e r h a p s fiid o u t whv they’re going on first via some I

offhand c o m m e n t , w h a t e v e r . So, the rumour is quashed and the c’pening band comes on first to boos. Just remember this, they were being b o o e d . (A short but very important side note. I was sitting in the balc o n y a n d j u s t i n f r o n t o f me to the right was, to put it politely, a geek. Too short polyester pants had tucked into them a plaid shirt worn by a black framed glasses-wearing polite as hell geek. He carried with him a notepad and pen and sat quite unassumingly back straight, feet together. Anyway, as I was saying, the opening band came on to roars of boos. . .) And I mean ROARS. Nothing quite so demoralizing I would guess. But the thing is and this just doesn’t make any sense, the band was great. This is without a doubt the best opening band I have ever seen. I knew nothing about them, and for a band to win over a whole crowd, let alone an individual is s o m e t h i n g . B y t h e t h i r d s o n g , the crowd was yelling, cheering and crowd surfing and simply blown away. The band themselves weresimply great. Perfectly mixed, and playing upon the hardcore alternative r i f f w i t h m o r e thanalittleBuzzcocks thrown in. In fact their only musical plagiarism of the night was stealing the bassline f o r “ B o r e d o m ” f o r o n e of their songs. The only overtly Alternative aspect o f t h e i r s h o w w a s the repeated line “I’m dead now” in one of the songs+ . * -m. Just.* asking for*a that teen angst identitication, really.

So here’s the first fucked up thing about the show. The band came on to boos and left to cheers. Let me repeat that. THE BAND C A M E O N T O B O O S A N D LEFT TO CHEERS!!!! That kind of shit just isn’t supposed to happen. (Now, remember the geek I mentioned earlier. Well. As soon as the opening band came on, he basically leaped to his feet started whooping and yelling and screaming and basically acting like a (dare I say it} concert goer. Let me repeat that. HE WAS WHOOPING AND YELLlNG AND SCREAMING. Aaaaaaaaxrgghhhh!!! This makesno sense!!!! I could’ve sworn he was basically an alien from another galaxy studying the concert like some extraterrestrial cultural ambassador. That was the only explanation I couid think of.)

Skydiggers: The Frank Interview By Frank Seglenieks Imprint Stuff

Courtesy of FM Magazine on CKMS-FM. Imprint: So is this part of a tour or are you just playing selected dates. Andy Maize: We are starting to gear up to tour again, we’re going out with Blue Rodeo starting next tuesday the 15th. We’ll be out with them for about 4 weeks across Canada. I: Are you touring with the same line up that recorded the album. AM: All except for Steve Pitkin taking over for Wayne Stokes on the drums. Steve made his fortune and then retired from the band. I: When you guys are travelling in your van, what kind of music is generally playing on the stereo? Ronny VonJohnny: A bit of Motown today, Emyloo Harris, we listened to a little bit of the Boss’s Lucky Town, basically whatever is around. I: Do you find the crowds are any different or you get a different reaction in different parts of Canada. Josh Finlayson: Its more different areas then anything else, we’ve only ever had people slam dancing to us in Saskatchewan. AM: We are lucky to meet people across the country and we find that they aren’t that different all across the country, there are subtle differences but generally the same. RVJ: Politicians like to drive wedges where they don’t exist. AM: 1 thinkontario considers itself the centre of the universe sometimes, particularly sou thcrnontario. Its nice to get to other parts of the country, its refreshing and the air is certainly cleaner. I: Are you getting a lot of radio support for this album? AM: Yes, well I think more than we know, across the country it’s been pretty good, but other than CFNY in Toronto I don’t think any of the other commercial radio stations are

playing it. So we don’t really hear it that much, but in other parts of the country I think its getting pretty good support. I: Do you guys prefer playing live over recording in the studio? JF: There just different, I don’t think there’s a preference, I think we would like to do more recording, we haven’t done enough to feel that we’re good enough not to do it. I think we would just like to continue doing both. I: Do you ever go out and see other bands around Toronto. RVJ: Occasionally when there is time, but right now we’re so busy we never have the time. Of course, this is a good way to see a band like Monkey Trial tonight, so we have to come here to see a Toronto band. I= A lot of different band members had writ-

Jonathan Richman T h e Bombshelter September 28,1992 by Paul Done Imprint staff The last FreeB49 concert of this term will be a fitting climax to the series as the legendary Jonathan Richman brings his guitar and his Dodge Veg-o-matic into the Bombshelter on Monday, September 28. Since he first began driving people out of bars in his native Cambridge, Mass. in about 1970, Jonathan Richman has pursued hismusicalaestheticwithanad.mirablesinglemindedness and doggedness. Taking his cue from the bareness and innocence of th”e Velvet Underground% third LP, Jonathan has fashioned an oeuvre of records which defined

ing ? AM: We’ll keep doing it, but that’s an ongoing process, we’re always writing new material. JF: We’re often go and do demos, whether its for an actual recording doesn’t matter. The only we will get better at it is to do more of it. We haven’t done nearly as much recording compared to the amount of live performances we have done. I: Last time you were here you talking about the Men Against Violence Campaign, any progress on that? AM: We did a benefit in Maryhill last April, and the first walk has been completed which was Windsor to Toronto, and there is another walk planned for next spring, Toronto to Ottawa I believe. We are still in touch with the people who do that, after all that is the root of all evil.

ing credits on this album, do you try to write them together and I noticed Peter has a lot of songs on it? Peter Cash: We do it a bunch of different ways, for this record that’s the way it came out. AM: Which is the same as the first record, Pete writes songs on his own and brings them into the band, or Josh and I will write a song or sometimes we’ll just be rehearsing and a song will come out of that. There’? just no one way that we do it. I: There was a longish break between your first two albums, do think you’ll get the next one out a bit faster? AM: We hope not, that was not a planned sabbatical, our first record company ran into trouble, so we were trying to get ourselves out of that deal and into another one.

pop minimalism before punk was even a devious thought in the brain of Malcolm McLaren. Early on in his career, Jonathan tackled the difficulties of the transition to adulthood i n s o n g s like “Girl Friend” (“spelled g-i-r-l fr-e-n”), “She Cracked,” and “Astral Plain-” As his career progressed, Richman regressed in to charmingly childlike paeans -with titles like “Double Chocolate Malted,” “The Beach” a’nd “Rockin’ Ice Cream Van.” Along withal1 the winsome ditties, Jonathan’s unadorned approach to songwriting produced gems such as “That Summer Feeling” (“it’s gonna haunt you the rest of your life”}. ln reference to Jonathan, a critic once said that the whale face of the ’70s would have been changed had Jonathan’s first LP been released when it was recorded in 19712 instead of five years later when everyone

had suffered through a half-decade of crappy art-rock. The critic was probably indulging in a little bit of hyperbole, but the lingering impact of his early recordings is undeniable. Members of the original Modern Lovers became members of New Wave stalwarts such as The Talking Heads and The Cars. As fashion and style have changed, Richman has soldiered on, releasing records whichfollowonlythedictatesofhiscreativity. From 1984’s JonnGan Sings!, possibly his finest recent LP, to Jonathan Goes Country, an illadvised romp in a New England meets Nashville stylee, to last year’s Huuing a P&y With ]om~tllar~ Richman, Richman has spent the ’80s and ’90s solidifying his reputation as a lovable wingnut. 1 t’s sure to be a shin-dig when Jona than makes his merry way into the Bombshelter, ‘cause when he dances, he dances with his hips and legs.

halfway between London and Oxford, It’s a great way to end off a European trip, especially if you mind these helpful hints. D o n ’ t b o t h e r b u y i n g a weekendpassunlessyouabsolutelymust see the bands on Friday. Friday’s lineup was rather week, with only the Wonderstuff, PJ Harvey, and the Charlatans mildly interesting. Saturday’s bands were much better and Sunday was awesome (though I wasn’t around), if not totally muddy. Do bring obscure rock band clothing. A Toronto opening band (e.g. The Satanatras) would probably gain respec t because few would

have heard of them. If not, a Rollins or Ned’s shirt would do nicely. .

Fuck Woodstock Uo Wear your oldest pair of Dots -- they’re only going to get muddy anyway. Anyone losing one boot (this happened) could go to

the Dot exchange held outside the main concert area. Do try to get to the other tents as well. The session tent featured cool up and coming bands, as well as groups that could have made the main stage, if not for numbers (e.g. BAD II, Suede). The comedy tent was cool and was a great alternative to The Farm. Do bring your sense of humour. The 39,999 other people will be just as cold/wet/high as you will be. Do bring your wallet. You’ll be able to eat almost anything while there, but free enterprise is alive

and well in post-Thatcher England (El.50 for a corn on the cob). Everyone at the Festival seemed t o b e e n j o y i n g t h e m s e l v e s , regardless of the amount of Ecstasy b e i n g d o n e . O n l y the Manic’s fans were disappointed as the band skipped the autograph session. This was due to a flying bass injuring a bouncer and the band beat a hasty retreat.

New Revttbluti6mS by Trevorl3luir Impfint stufl

Lou Reed is riding a crest of critical acclaim. The ZVW York LP Of ‘89, his collaboration withJohn Cale, Songs Fur Drella in ‘90, and 1992’s Magic And Loss are three of the best albums of his solo carreer. Befzoeen Thought and Expression, a three CD/ cassette retrospective of his career stops just short of the above projects and excludes all of his work with the seminal Velvet Underground, (although both “Sweet Jane” and “Heroin” make live apperarances). To put it succinctly, the above work is prerequisite to this box. Sharing its name with a recent book uf Reed’s selected lyrics and writings, Befweetz Thought and Expression encompasses an enormous amount of artistic ground. Between his first, underproduced, self-titled solo LP to the flawed Mistrial of 1986, 45 representative tracks have been chosen - by Reed himself who also shares credit with Bob Ludwig in supervising the remastering, producing, as Reed says, “sound. . .at all times superior to the originals.” Toronto music critic Rob Bowman contributes a superb 20,ooO word booklet to accompany the set, for which Reed gave several hours of interview time. The essay takes us from Lou’s early highschoolsongwritingsuccesses,astint in journalism, the VU, and then, 17 albums of: flirtation with mass

acceptance (“Walk On The Wild Side”) and stubborn alienation (Metal Machine Music.) A sole and strange shortcoming of the package isitsunimaginativegraphiccontent: one “rare” photo of Lou with bad hair and a football T-shirt (37), and album cover reproductions. A cue could certainly have been taken *from the superb “velvet edition” of Songsfrom Drella, chock-full of rare VU/Factory shots. The first disc is hampered by the same problem that led to the omission of Lou’s most recent works; heavily conceptual content thatdorzsn’treadilyofferafew “hits” to pluck off for complilation. The troublesome album h question is the 1973 masterpiece Berlin, a bleak audio-novel chronicling the lives of agroupofjunkiesbottomingout.ln

trying to do Expression justice, the compilers have included six tracks, over a half an hour of music which only serves to disservice Berlin and rupture the pace of the compilation. Instead of attempting a condensed version of the work, the finale “Sad Song” alone would have sufficiently hinted at Berlin’s majesty, while freeing up some space for outtakes and rarities, an element Expression, as a whole, is lacking. The “hits” are here however, both “Walk On The Wild Side” and “Satellite of Love,” the dassic “Sweet Jane’* (live), and the excruciating “Kill Your Sons.” Also, two songs originally performed by the Velvets, but which saw their first official studio release on Lou Reed are

‘It’s a pretty safe bet that when a band splits up, you cart expect one or two solo careers to test the waters within a year or so. So when Gal&e 500 - the best Velvets-influen& droning guitar band on the planet - split up last year, fans could console themselves with anticipation of future splinter projects+ Rhythm section Damon &~kowski and Naomi Yang are rumoured to be preparing an album for ShimmyDisc Records, but Dean Wareham - singer, guitarist, and (most likely, although all tunes werecredited tothefullband)songwriter - has gotten the jump on the sweepstakes with a new all-star band and a major label. 1 Luna2is made up of Wareham,’ Justin Harwood (former bassist for the Chills) and Stanley Demeski

(drummer for the now-defunct Feelies). Wareham has described Lumpark as the album Galaxie 500 couldn’t have made, 7’his is quite possibly true, but by the time the last song ends it’s hard to say whether that’s a good or bad thing.

In the first place it must be tioted that”Anesth~ia”(w~~tumedup in a shorter version on a Wareham solo EPearlier thii year) is probably the best single of 1992. It has all the elements of classic Galaxie 500: simpie and melancholy lyrics, classic chords, and guitar solos that actually makesms. It’s also imbued with a musical v&our, a cotidence, that was lacking in War&am’s old crol-lies. While the whole album is quite fine, there are other standouts as well. “Time to Quit” belies Wareham’s claim by sounding ex-

actly like a great Galaxie 500 tune. In contrast, the urbane “I Want Everything”betraysastrongLloydCo~e influence, of &. thingsLyrically, Wareham is obviously preoccupied withhis former band’s acritionio& breakup. There are linesandsongtitleseve~herethat seem to allude to it: ‘Time to Quit;”

“Goodbye “; “You know I tried to please you;” “You made me feel so

guilty.” Granted, they could all just aseasily beabout relationship problems, but how many ways can you interpret a line like “Maybe I’m as bad.... as the on& I hate”?

inch&d; both “Ocean” and “I Can’t Stand It” are superbly remastered, yet ultimately inferior to the nowavailable Velvet versions (released on VU, a 1985 collectionof outtakes). The second disc/chapter fares far better with a few surprisingly strong oddities: “Downtown Dirt” (an early version of “Dirt”) and “Here Comes The Bride” from the same concert that resulted in the essential double live album Take No Prisoners. Twootherhighpointsareasplendid live version of “Heroin” with Don Cherry on trumpet, and the masterpiece “Street Hassle.” I cannot begin to suggest how much whining you would now be reading had the powers that be omitted or tampered with this H-minute triumph of literate rock. On Songs for Drella, Reed has Andy Warhol remind him I’ . . . the songs with the dirty words, make sure you record them that way.” “Street Hassle” remains true to this ideal. From the grimy orchestral i n t r o t o Bruce Springsteen’s quiet, eloquent narration, “Hassle” exemplifies rock’s potential to manifest bitterness and reality with a scope assumedly exclusive to literature. An unnecessary minute and a half of Metal Machine Music, is itself descendant from John Gale’s “The Loop,” .providing inspiration for both the industrial noise merchants of the late ‘7Us, and the sugary cacaphony of recent British pop. More indicativeof Lou’s importance than testament to it, MMM quickly gives way to The Bells where spontaneous lyrics and beautiful horn arrangement combine into a transcendance akin to the Velvet’s finest moments. The final installment of Lou’s Expression is similarly rewarding, drawing excellent material from the underrated L e g e n d a r y Hearts (featuring the same line up as on

Even while he’s at his most vicious, though, Wareham sounds mellower than ever. His vocals never approach the h&h keening tone that distinguished his best work with Gal&e, and the guitarsolo ratio is also at an all-time low. On Lunapnrk, Wareham emsmore intent on maintaining a steady, consistent pulse than on spreading his considerably talented wings+ As a result, many of the songs, such as “Slash Your Tires,” are much more driving and insistent than the usual Galaxie lethargy. Unfortunately, Harwood’ and Demeskil- who promised great things in view of their previous work- are actually a somewhat disappointing rhythm section. Too often they seem merely competent and polished, content to maintain the rhythm and little else. Personality conflictsaside, the inspired amate&m of Krukowski and Yang would add a much-needed edge to he songs like “Slide.” Of course, it’s unfair to compare Luna2 to Gaiaxie 500. It’s also impossible not to. So: Is Lunqmrk a good album? Certainly; it even approaches greatness. Is it as good as a new Galaxie 500 record would have been? Impossible to say. Wareham has said they could not have made this record. Suffice it to day that if they could have, it would have been even better than it is.

Nezu Ymk,) The Blue Mask, and Nau Semafiuns. A piece of soundtrack work, “Little Sister” from Get Crazy is a gem, far beyond the usual fare Reed contributed in the ’80s (the lame “Hot Hips” from Perfect and “Something Happened” from Permanent Record being just a few of the sub-par pieces.) “The Original Wrapper,” “Video Violence,” and “Voices Of Freedom” are all on the dodgy side in lieu of the overlooked “No Money Down,” “How Do You Speak To An Angel,” and “Billy.” Then again, any fan who has more than a casual knowledge of Reed’s uuvre is bound to have a few personal faves that are excluded. Pleasant surprises come by way of “Tell It To Your Heart,” fromMisfrial, easily one of Lou’s most beautiful ballads, and “Doin’ The Things That We Want T o ” f r o m New Sensafions which exemplifies his love for lush soundscapes. A takeonFrancisScott Key’s “America” is a surprise, the only non-Reed composition in the package. Manyattemptshavebeenmade to compilate Lou’s history in one or two LPs. The tracks included are usually predictable and easy to digest. Between . . . Expression demands more from the listener by wandering down thealleywaysless trodden by the average bohemian fag-smoking hipster. There’s genuine intelligence here, passion, anger, understanding and acceptance. Let’s face it, box &&s aren’t cheap, and while they’re more than an introduction, in Lou’s case, they still pale next to three of his better, entire works. So take Expression or Berlin, The Blue Mask and Nau Sensations, either choice is a substantial investment in money, time and thought. Rewards galore,

As much a souvenir or a curio as a record, The Ss’rrll EP is Urge Overkill’s last indie hurrah before theymoveor\toamajor-labelcareer. It brings together a couple cover versions (including a song by their idol Neil Diamond), both sides of their 1991 Sub Pop Singles Club release, and a couple new tunes. And it’s all grafted onto a beautiful ten-inch slab of marbled white vinyl. The title track shows just what this band can do: tough but melodic guitar rock, played with verve and rhythmic suaveness. Unfortunately, it’s the only tune here that lives up to the standard set by last year’s very fine Supersonic Storybookalbum. The Diamond cover -- “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon” -- is surprisingly lame. “(Now That’s) the Barclords” is rock by numbers, a study in cliched posturing. “Whds This Generation Coming To” - about the death of vinyl -has a bit of a thematic tie-in with the EP’s packaging, but otherwise the rest of the stuff here is pretty dull. A disappointment, to say the least.

Fusioiz had to be one of the greatest musical failures of the Seventies. It didn’t have the power or the anger of rock and roll, and it didn’t have the complexities of jazz.

Also, Mot&head does a gritty, double-fisted cover of Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever.” The standout track on the album is the full-throttle banger “Jack The Ripper,” laced with some pretty mean guitar solos by both Wurzel and Zijiim.

by Puuiine OitJloff lmpfint staff It’s been such a long time since I’ve fallen in love at first sound with a tape that I’ve almost forgotten the feeling of joy and excitement that g o e s a l o n g w i t h i t . I ’ m s u r e y o u know what I mean, the feeling of not wanting the music to end and constantly thinking about the songs. Well, one album in particular captured my heart and attention and the name of it is Diva by Annie Lennox. If you didn’t already know she was part of a dynamic duo called the Eurythmics with Dave Stewart but the band split up in 1989 and the two went their seperate ways. The Eurythmics had some big hits like “Here comes the rain again” and “Would I lie to you” and their success was largely due to the teamwork of Lennox and Stewart. Since the breakup, Dave Stewart has been producing other bands and even started a band of his own but his solo work can not match the success of the Eurythmics. That’s why I admit I was a little skeptical about an Annie Lennox solo release and its margin for success. I mean if Dave Stewart hadn’t done w e l l o n h i s o w n w h y s h o u l d A n n i e Lennox? Well, I was proved wrong. Lennox is not only as good as the Eurythmics, I’d even go out on a limb and say she’s better-she’s stronger, more dramatic and at t i m e s , melancholy and reflective. Left without the influence of Dave Stewart shereleasesmoreemotionsand writes more passionately than ever. Strong vocals help deliver poetic lines like “....everything I possess given with tenderness wrapped in a r i b b o n o f g l a s s . . . ” in a s o n g called “Cold”. Lennox has always been criticized for her cynacism a n d b i t t e r n e s s b u t w i t h t h i s a l b u m s~seemsto~elheremotionsmorefo~

plain but interesting for fans. Also included is Neil Young’s “Cry No Tears”, a favourite of the Glaswegian band Teenage Fanclub. T h e m o s t i n t e r e s t i n g , i f n o t t h e b e s t Bside is the cover of “Falling”, from the Twin Peaks show. A near-complete revamping is offered and a very powerful one at that. The contrast between Julee Cruise and Gedge is reason enough to take a listen to this collection. Whereas the soft caressing vocals of Cruise slowly lull you into a falsesense of security, Gedge just moans and groans making sure that you feel the same pain he’s singing about. The rest of the B-sides are eclectic and bizarre. The Monkees’ “Pleasant Valley Sunday” being perhaps the most well known. My two favourite B-sides are by two bands I’ve never heard of. The tracks by Altered images and Close Lobsters are just phenomenal pop. I feel my education’s been lacking just because of these two tracks. r: x4 I do love the Wedding Presen t. Love love love. And here are twelve good reasons why this band from Leeds continues to produce great albums seven years after their conception. Few bands can actually question any of the canons of popular music, but the Wedding Present has done just that. At first the s i n g l e w a s the epitome of the three minute pop song. Later, the single became a predictable marketing ploy (as it is now) and finally with the Wedding Present the single is just a tool for cynics to push the rest of the music world over the cliff into oblivion. Long live the Weddoes.

Obviously I think this album is worth.. getting no matter how you get it. I highly recommend it- not just because I’m a big AnnieLennoxfan butbecauseit’sreallygood thinking music and it’s different and different is good. Fall in love for yourself.

Several Seas:ons in He.11 Monster in a Box Directed by Nick Broomfield by Sandy Atwul imprht stuff T o w a t c h S p a l d i n g G r a y perform is to watch a unique artist completely reinvpnt a common medium and surpass all the labels the press try to apply to him. More than a master storyteller or social critic, Spalding Gray is a real two dimensional person. On a flat screen, he is more alive than most performers can hope to be. His previous film Swimming to Cambodia was an exercise in professional observation. That film recounts Gray’s experiences while filming The Killing Fields. Basically a film adaptation of a one-man play, Spaulding’s performances have the u n n e r v i n g effect of a ) m a k i n g y o u w a t c h a r e c o r d i n g o f a man’s face for an hour and a half and b) actually enjoying it. Gray represents a t r i u m p h o f f o r m o v e r f a c t . F o r PXample, I can’t really tell you what Swimming to Cambodia i s about - I would be doing Gray’s act, but it doesn’t matter what, specifically, he’s talking about. Gray’s ability to weave a complex, orchestrated story and present it like a spontaneous m o n o !% ue is his strength.

And this strength is nowhere presented more strongly than in Gray’s new film Monster in a Box. The monster is the novel Gray has been working on for the past four years, entitled impossible Vacation a behemoth at over 1900 pages. Monster in a Box recounts the obstacles Gray had to overcome in order to get the job finished. In some ways, the movie is a travelogue. G r a y m o v e s f r o m MacDowell, the N e w E n g l a n d writer’sretreat,i he stays in a lodge named “Bates’ House”, to Los Angeles where he is incessently badgered by L.A. types trying to cash in on his post Cambodia f a m e .

from completing his book. Throughout the movie, Gray p o i n t s o u t the p h y s i c a l p a g e w h e r e he was at in the monster at the time of a certain incident. As a r e s u l t o f his discussion, the audience realizes that book itself is au tobiogrqphical.

New Bones for the Old Ceremony Good Bones by Margaref Atwood Coach House Press, 153 pages by stacey Lddn imprint stuff When Margaret Atwood is good, she’s very my good; when she is bad, she is horrid, So when a new work by Atwood comes drifting on the tide of shifting papers across my desk, it is with a mixture ofdelightandtrepidationthatIpick it up. Good Bones is a brand new collection of short stories, vignettes, anecdotes, scribblings, and whathave-youthatisnotmeant (itseems) to be either coherent or profound. Don’t bother Looking for any deep meaning or anything, because it just ain’t there. (Unless you’re a woman, of course. Then you’d find buckets of stuff to mull over.) Let me tell you something right now: Good Bones is a very politically c o r r e c t , f e m i n i s t y , eco-sympathetic new-age k i n d o f t h i n g . If y o u c a n ’ t stand any of this stuff, then don”t read it-it’ll only make you spit. On theotherhand,GoodBonesisapurely amusing, well-crafted and wellwritten Sunday afternoon read . . .

so even if you’re a bone-headed, chanting/drumming, styrofoamusing pig, you might still want to give it a try (I tv to use as many paper coji?e cups as possible -- do I qucdify? - ed.). “There was once a poor girl, asbeautifulasshe was good, who lived with her wicked stepmother in a house in the forest . . .” Pull out your politically-correct checklist and see how this one simple phrase stacks up. “There was once” is a hilarious dissection of the common fairy-tale introd u c t i o n , , i n a dialogue between an irritable story-teller and a querulous listener. This &liciously ironic piece is a high point in the collection. Good -~ Bones ~ is also an exercise in

changing one’s perspective, if anything else. “The Little Red Hen Tells

All” is the p a r t i c u l a r l y b i t t e r f i r s t person narrative on the “Will you help me plant this wheat?” story, and her ensuing dilemma. “There’s no peace a n y m o r e a n d all because

The Student Message Centre ‘es j I Personal Phone Number Codes are Now Available

of that goddamn Loaf of bread,” she tells us. In another shift of perspective, Gertrude, Queen of Denmark tells a plausible tale that perfectly explains why Hamlet was off the beam. “Gertrude Talks Back” is the shocking (and perfectly reasonable) re-interpretation of who killed Hamlet’s father and why. And in “Unpopular Gals,” the fairy- tale archetypes of the ugly sister, the wicked witch, dnd the evil s t e p m o t h e r get to air their grievances and explain h o w t h e y” ’ v e b e e n grievously misrepresented all these years. The weakest vignettes in the collection are the flitty “green” p i e c e s : A t w o o d rhapsodizes about p u r e , uqadulterated vistas on t h e

one hand, and on the other she presentspolluteddystopiasthatwill o c c u r v e r y soon if w e d o n ’ t w a t c h out, so smarten up, kiddies. You get the distinct feeling that Atwood got very cosy with a bottle of Bardeaux while writing this. . . but it was probably just toxins in the water. Lastly, I’d like to mention the “death” works, which are mostly okay, but also mostly forgettable. Except one: “Poppies: Three Variations” in which Atwood takes the famous stanza from “In Flanders Fields” (the poppies blow, between the crosses, row on row . . .) and uses each word from the stanza, in order and in context, in three separate stories. It’s pretty neato, and it should be a standard exercise for any w r i t e r . Good Bones has its low points, some very high points, and some stuff in between,.but it’s an enjoyable book overall. If you like Margaret Atwood, you’ll like this collection. The best thing about it, especially if you consider Atwood a duty-read, is that each p i e c e i s s o short that you can easily read one every commercial break. Now beat a quick path to the bookstore before they’re plumb cleaned out.

Things Aren’t Quite The Same The Velvet Underground Handbook M . C . Kosfek Black S p r i n g P r e s s 2 2 1 p a g e s

MC. Kostek, president of the Velvet Underground Appreciation Society has unleashed The Velvet Underground Handbook. Heclaims the book will provide “hours of pleasure for every V.U. fan,” and will be of interest even to the casual fan. After 32 pages o f i n t r o d u c t i o n and excellently detailed band history, it plunges into a 189-page archival catalogue of discographies (official and unofficial), song lists, related books, related records, articles, television appearances, filmography, a listing of bands that have covered V.U. material, and even a curious essay suggesting “new and improved” track sequences to program into your CD player! TheV.U.remainoneofthemost influential bands of all time. In Czecholslovakia, people were imprisioned in the ’60s for playing VU songs or for having a tape or printed lyrics, such was the importance of the VU’s second album

White Light White Heat as a “galvanizing example of freedom of expression.” (ExC z e c h president Vaclav Have1 recently presented VU frontman Lou Reed with hand-cop: ied volume of these “subversive” lyrics.)

very little if no use for this book. I, a minor fanatic, got exactly one and a half hours of enjoyment out of it. It is an excellent piece of work, albeit for a very specific (lunatic) audience. After digesting aU the delightful historical tidbits, from their @eterminedly anti-‘6Us peace, love, flower-power stance to their rejection of Brian Epstein, manager of The Beatles, one is left to marvel at the rare photos and dream, dream, dream about owning the near impossible to find bootlegs, magazines etc. The casual fan is not going to scour the earth for this material. The fanatic might, but will undoubtedly find a mere fraction of it, and will then be destined to wander the earth tired and e m p t y . M o r e i n t e r esting perhaps would be an encyclopedic coliection of all know articles, as weli as a mail-order service for rare audio and video. Copyright laws prevent this of course, so we are left with a do-it-yourself guide to a wonderful yet ever-growing VU. museum. If Kostek has all the stuff he’s listed here, you might want to visit him at 5721 SE Laguna Avenue, Stuart Florida, U.S.A. and rob him blind.

She sang with great wit (standing up on a chair) and with a style appealing to the ear and humouring for thespirit. Her presentation of words and flux invoice range were i n s u c h a b u n d a n c e t h a t t h e y c o u l d s e n d m i n d a n d e m o t i o n w h i r l i n g in a buzzing, dizzy high. Needful to sa#y, M e r y n C a d e l l w a s n o t a l o n e o n s t a g e . At times she was attended by a medley of vocals and instruments; Andy on drums and vocals, John on guitar and I-leather at the keyboard, also providing occasional vocals. In my opinion however, Cadell at this particular time and performance, would have beenbetter to perform solo since more often than not her associates, Andy, John and Heather, did not add to the glitz of the performance. Of course with some practise . . . but yes (!) that is another story; this was the time for performance and we should expect the performe r s t o b e w e l l rehearsed and “in tune” with each other. Cadell performed a great run d o w n o f s e v e r a l f a m i l i a r s o n g s , a n d o f t h o s e some w i t h n e w t w i s t s a n d i m p r o v i s a t i o n s a n d t h e n s o m e e n t i r e l y new to the best part of the audience. Cadell started out with “standing at the e d g e o f t h e w o r l d ” a n d “ w a n t i n g s o m e o n e t o make (her] a difference”, followed by such common songs as “Bumble Bee”, “Flight Attendant”, “I’ve Been Redeemed”, “Inventory” and “Barbie”. F o r me, C a d e l l i s m y barb&doll c o m e alive. T h o u g h the real Mattel B a r b i e n e v e r d r e s s e d f o r the alternative black stage of life, Cadell does possess the angelic barbie-blond hair. And for another fact my barbie never baby sat an Imprint alumnus named John Hymers. Furthermore, I never dreamt that my barbie-doll would sing and dance and make super comical remarks capable of tickling soul and moving mind. Neither can I account for Cadell’s bizarre, sometimes outrageous yet deep words and lyrics that touch on some of life’s realities. “So don’t throw your barbie-dolls in the ocean - there are more important things for them to do”!?*

The Hot Tamales The Grad Huuse S e p t . l&l992 by Scott Carson imprint Staff

The Grad I-Iouse was home last friday to a small crowd of blues enthusiasts as the Hot Tamales put on a performance that would have been on par with anything coming out of the Mississippi Delta. A collection of songs from the best of blties artists was energetically delivered to all those lucky enough to attend. T h e b a n d ( c o n s i s t i n g o f Katrina M a u g h a m - v o c a l s , S h a w n Kellermanguitar, Ron Kellerman-keyboards, Al Richardson-bass, and Murray Campbell-drums) has played the Grad House many times and always wowed all present with energy fused fantastic vocal withanearperfectly synchronimd handEachofth te three sets began instrumentals which were guaranteed to groove of there you could mersed o n s u c h Won’t Move’, Daddy’ and Mess With My odd remake of Man’, with t h e like ‘Knock on songs Wood’. T h e b l u e s w e n t o n t o t h e w e e h o u r s of t h e m o r n i n g i n a s e e m i n g l y endless flow of classics done in a way rarely heard on the UW C a m p u s . Legendary tunes permeated the air as this talented group of musicians committed themselves t o a n o t h e r much appreciated performance. If you enjoy the blues, be sure to search these folks out and help keep their music alive. Its been said that “by the year two thousand and six, the m u s i c k n o w n t o d a y a s ‘ t h e b l u e s ’ , w i l l exist only in the classified record section of your local public library”. s-w-
