unicipal elections can be interesting. That’s just one of the lessons to be learned from the elections held in Waterloo recently. In case you haven’t heard, Brian Tumbull won twice, compared to Susan Forwell who only won once. On November 14, the municipal election seemed to be just like any other, except for the exceptionally close mayoral race. Forwell and the incumbent Tumbull stayed neck and neck all night, usually separated by about 100 votes, but with Turnbull taking the lead shortly after the polls began to be returned, and holding that lead for the .I can’t tell rest of the evening. At one point, the margin was just thirty votes. Forwell watched the results come in at city hall, where the third candidate, John Summers, also watched. Summers came in

a distant third with slightly over 4,000 votes. Tumbull had reserved a banquet room at the Waterloo Inn for his party, and despite the fact that it yas filled with eager supporters, didn’t show up until almost all polls had been returned.

At the end of the evening, Tumbull was declared the victar, by 116 votes, 8044 to 7928. In his victory speech, he said that it was “the closest race I’ve ever been involved in.” Little did he know that it was going to get closer.

who’s the winner. Can you tell who’s the winner? Fonvell and Turnbulf both showed the pressure by repeatedly ducking into private rooms, away from the media, to compose themselves.

At some point in the evening after the results had been announced, it was realized that some advance poll had not been included. After these were

counted, there was a new winner. Forwell was declared the winner by a minuscule nine votes. Turnbull had seven days to request a recount, and promptly did so. It was discovered during this process that in Lexington Ward, the tallies for Tumbull and thirdplace Summers had been reversed, with the candidates receiving each others votes. Once this was corrected, Turnbull came out with 27 more ballots than before. “It was too good to be true,” said Turnbull. Forwell also came up with an extra vote, but the new results still showed another flip-flop. Turnbull was the winner again. The drama is not yet ended. For-well has consulted with her lawyer and has signed a form reserving the right to request another recount. She is even considering attempting to have a second election held, and cites numerous voting irregularities as justification

Reserves New Fed

by Susan Routliffe special to Imprint


vercrowding in the Dana Porter Library has been a problem for years, and in I99 1, a task force was set up to look at ways to alleviate the overcrowding and enable the Library to continue to providc effective service. Relocating reserves to an area elsewhere on campus, somewhere inside the ring road, was .one of several recommendations from that group. Shortly after that task force had tabled its report, the Library learned that the committee developing plans for the Student Centre was accepting proposals from groups on campus interested in providing service in the new building. Over the years, the idea of combining the Porter and Davis reserves had been raised. Once the Library began to seri-

ously consider the opportunity provided by the Student Centre, the idea of combinifig both units and moving them there took on new life. In the fall of 1992, representatives of the Library met with the Student Centre Committee to

The Library has established a team to develop, implement and administer plans for the provision of library services in the Student Centre. Team members include staff from several areas of the Library, one faculty member and two students, an undergraduate and a graduate.

Information about the move has been posted to campus newsgroups and suggestion boxes have been placed in the reserves area of the Dana Porter and the Davis Centre Libraries.

in Ontario could be prevented if people stopped smoking and improved their diets, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. Richard Shabas, says. “Tobacco use is our number one public health problem. In Ontario, we are taking a strong stand against smoking with our tobacco strategy,” said Shabas in his fourth annual report, Opportunities for Health: Progress against Cancer. Ontario is soon expected to proclaim its new Tobacco Control Act. This act will outlaw the sale of Tobacco to anyone under nineteen, and make the selling of Tobacco by drug store9 or vending machines illegal. The threat of a “public health disaster” looms as a result of the federal governments tobacco tax cut earlier this Shabas year, added. “There is solid evidence that taxation has been a powerful factor in reducing smoking among young people.” The federal government’s decision to cut tobacco taxes forced Ontario to follow. Statistics show that tobacco production has since increased. Tobacco is responsible for about 25% or 5,000 cancer deaths in Ontario each year. The provincial government is also attempting to cut down on cancer deaths, through the investment of $100 million in cancer centres. The program, which will buiId new centres in Durham and Peel and expand the London Regional Cancer Centre, will create 250 new

Job-hunting skills refined pursuing co-op university degree v Personable, reliable and enthusiastic How does your resum6 stack up? This is an important question for many of us these days. If you are graduating this year, the resumk that got you a summer job flipping hamburgers last summer may seem inadequate as you look for full-time employment in the real world. Jf you are a co-op student watching your friends (but for some reason not yourself?) go through the interview process, it may be becoming clear that you are going to need to use a different strategy to get noticed by employers in the second rounds. Even if you don’t fit into either of these categories, you may be concerned that your resumk isn’t quite everything that it should be. As a Student Career Advisor, I critique several student resumes every week. I have noticed that nearly every resumb I see lacks one of the most important features of a good resumb: a Career Objective/ Summary of Qualifications or Skills Summary section. For many people, these headings are mystery categories on resum&. They know what kind of information to offer under the categories of Education, Work Experience or Volunteer Activities. They don’t know that all of this information can be easily overlooked by an




employer if a resumk doesn’t begin with a clear goal and/or summary to highlight the most important characteristics of the candidate and focus the reader on his/her immediately transferable skills. All graduating students need a Career/Job Objective and Summary of Qualifications on their resumk. These are also an excellent idea for co-op students, particularly in later work terms when you are seeking a specific kind of employment. Ifyou are new to co-op or looking for part-time work, you may find thatt you use a Skills Summary because you tire unsure of your future career goals and you lack specific qualifications and expertise related to such a goal.

Nuclear Waste in Cottage Country? by Frank Imprint


Seglenieks staff

This was the focus of an open house and information session held last Thursday in the Davis centre.


ntario Hydro has a problem. Even if they were to stop producing energy from nuclear power today, they would still have to contend with 1. I million bundIes of used nuclear fuel. But as around 60% of Ontario’s power comes from this source, it is likely that we will have much more of it to contend with in the future. This has led the utility to cosponsor a research project with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) to come up with a plan for the long term storage of nuclear waste. Since 1978, about $4 13 million has been spent on the project and now AECL has come out with the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for their disposal con-

The parties involved in the project could inform the members of the public about the EIS and about

where the project goes from here. Present were representatives from Ontario Hydro, AECL and the Federal Environmental Assessment Panel which is in charge of the environmental review. Currently, nuclear waste is stored in large tanks of heavy water after it no longer has enough energy to be useful in the generation of power. But these tanks are getting full, so the next step is to store the oldest used fuel bunI dles in aboveground dry storage containers sur// rounded by thick ’ / walls of concrete. However this method requires a lot ,/I of expensive maintenance and institutional control, highlighting the problems with these short : term solutions. As a result, the goals L7 of the study were to determine a method for long term nuclear storage which would minimize the burden of future generations with respect to 1) seeking methods which do not rely on longterm institutional controls as a necessary safety feature 2) implementing disposal options at an appropriate time, technical, social, and economic factors being taken into account and 3) ensuring that there are no future health risks to humans or the environment. The plan involves selecting a site within the Canadian shield. The shield was chosen because of its geological stability and favourable rock characteristics. Other rock types considered were salt basins and thick shale deposits, but it was thought that the possibility of inadvertent human intrusion would be high as these rocks are often associated with economic resources. Once a site is found (after many years of public hearings and geological investigation), a network of shafts and tunnels would be excavated from 500 to 1000 metres below the surface. The nuclear waste

bundles would be sealed in titanium containers, these containers would then be deposited in holes in the floor of the tunnels surrounded with a buffer of highly compacted bentonite clay. The tunnels would then be sealed with backfill and concrete, and after the vault is full, the shafts would be sealed. Much of the research for the

The EIS tries to assess the danger to the public and environment of not only the long term storage of the nuclear waste, but also of the risks involved in transporting the waste to the storage site. However, when you are talking about a time span of 100 000 years it is very difficult to say how meaningful estimates of long term health effects can be. During the presentation, it was stressed that the public is \ going to be invitid to par\ \ ticipate in every aspect of the process. Starting \ ‘I off, this first 9 month review process is just q ‘1 to get the opinions of HAZARDOUS the public, governMATERIAL ’ ment agencies and STORAGE technical specialists in iT regard to whether or not the AECL has addressed all of the terms of the original guidelines for the J EIS.

After the public hearings, the panel will decide if the plan is feasible and should be implemented. This part could take a few more years. Possible sites would only be chosen after the plan has been accepted and each of the sites would go through an extensive geological assessment.

they oppose the proposed $2.6 billion in cuts. Originally, the Feds ordered 1,000 postcards, but have now ordered several thousand additional cards. According to Lee, the response has been huge and the postcards are leaving the office “as fast as they come in.” Lee has been in contact with both the Prime Minister’s office and Axworthy’s office, and is expecting an official response to the cards. The other schools in OUSA (Laurier, Brock, Queen’s, Western and U of T) are considering campaigns against the cuts, but as of yet, have not organized any definite plans of action. The CFS has also called for a national strike by students on January 25, 1995. The Federation of Students is not endorsing this.

Bugs to Eat PCBs




UW News


he federal government has given a UW professor al1 most $300,00&o develop a process to treat PCB-contaminated soil. Professor Owen Ward, of the biology department, has received $288,000 to fund the three year project. Ward is the head of the Microbial Biotechnology Laboratory. The funding came from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC). Working with Ward are two researchers from the microbiology department of the University of Alberta, as well as a number of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. “The funding will allow us to develop a bioremediation process for degradation of PCBs in soil,”

explained Ward, “Currently, incineration is the only PCB disposal

natural micro-organisms to break down toxic or carcinogenic materials. Based on U.S. figures, Ward believes that asmuch ai four or five million cubic meters of soil in Canada may be contaminated with PCBs. He estimatesthat clean-up costs using the incineration method would be around $3,000 per cubic metre. That amounts to a total cost between twelve and fifteen billion dollars. If Ward’s team is successtil, their bioremediation process could cut costs down to a mere $200 to $400 per cubic metre. The market for such a process is estimated at

n a much expected news release yester day, the federal government revealed that it was actually a subsidiary of a giant multinational corporation. Not surprisingly, it turns out that the company in question, International Capital Ltd. seems to own just about everything else too. The announcement was contained in Lloyd Aworthy’s discussion paper on social policy reform as an appendix to the main body of the text. Although the information had been declassified in the late 80’s by the Mulroney government, formal acknowledgement of the obvious had been delayed for reasons concerning ‘due process’ in bureaucratic affairs. Somehow there seems to have been a breakdown between the Director of Communication for the Commission of Procedural Affairs and her liaison at the Office of Departmental Restructuring in the Ministry of Bureaucratic Redundancy. No one has yet determined how this could have happened. In actual fact, the reference to International Capital Ltd. appeared rather innocuously in a chart at the end oflmpr~ving Social Security I’n Canada (The Green Paper). This graph was intended to represent the obligatory oversimplification of economic principles that served as the rationale behind shifting government debt to students in the form of huge loans towards increased tuition fees. The buy now, pay later idea actually came from a middle manager at Jumbo Video in 1983, but took a while to reach the proper authorities. Eventually however, all government projects see the light of day. After all the intrusive environmental assessments are com-


plete, the time consuming public forums are held and the more offensive passages of the text are reworded, everything comes to fnrition. Why breakwith tradition? Luckily, all is not doom and gloom. The fact that most of the world is part of a single monopoly does have an up side. Allow me to explain. As it turns out, there really is no deficit. Starting in the fiscal year that begins on May 1,1995,International Capital changing its accounting procedures so as to write off much of the perceived debt. In conjunction with this move, the parent corporation has agreed to undertake a structural overhaul of its social services division. This move will allow the unprofitable subsidiary to stream-





stages. Each step is rationalized by asking the people who consume the service to ‘provide for its maintenance.’ Step One: Tuition will increase. Each generation should be paying for its own education. We gain the benefits that accompany a higher education; hence we should bear the expense. Your degree earns you the opportunity to receive a substantially inflated salary. It is therefore your obligation to pay for this privilege out of the windfall it wiil bring you. For this reason, ail of your discretionary income will go to the corporation to pay off this debt until you are forty. Step Two: Health care will adopt a ‘fee for service’ model.

This reorganization is predicted to more than compensate for the loss of $7 billion in unpaid taxes that was reported by the federal auditor last week. In fact, i fall goes as planned taxes should be effectively written off by 2045 when the dwindling pool of capital that exists outside of the corporation is expected to have evaporated completely.

will be forced to work two jobs in order to make your loan payments. This, coupled with the stress of concurrent mortgage payments on your house, leasing fees on your car and deductions for CPP and UI will cause your health to suffer. Obviously this stress will be unique to our generation, and therefore it should not be the responsibility of other generations to foot the bill. Luckily, the corporation also sells insurance. Step Three: Unemployment Insurance will be replaced by a Temporary Depcnd-

ency Surcharge. Because education was made universally accessible through the normalization of student indebtedness a fundamental philosophical shift will have occurred. The corporation has trained you. 1f you are not adding to productivity, al nominal charge will be assessed to you as an incentive for you to reenter the workforce. Step Four: Old Age Pensions will be phased out. As people’s health deteriorates due to overwork and poor nutrition, our demographics will improve as the older, less productive members of society begin to drop off Those who refuse to submit to this inevitability will be maintained as a gesture of corporate good-will. In their totality, these measures should enable the government to completely abolish taxes within fifty years due to an eradication of discretionary income. We pay the corporation and then fend for ourselves. As Mr Axworthy stated in the Green Paper, “This approach would also reinforce the idea of encouraging mutual responsibility among Canadians for managing a greater share of their own social security.“(Pg 63) Now that it has been revealed that our federal government is simply another puppet regieme, at least there is less need for internal propoganda. Uncle Lloyd no longer needs to talk about “financing lifelong learning”, (pg 62). Now he can let us ponder ‘the lifelong financing of learning’. It must be refreshing to be able to finally say “social policy reform is not about improving services, nor is it about increasing fairness or accessibility. Reform is about economics.” Have you read Axworthy’s discussion paper? Ask the Feds for a copy; it is very entertaining reading. Also, it makes very hip wrapping paper. Only four weeks to X-mas!

he persistent debate over university funding has forced Canadians to reconsider the role of Canada’s social safety net in providing an affordable, accessible education to students across the country* While the passionate cries to increase funding and improve our universities with public money is a tempting position, it ignores several facts about how our economy, and especially our economy at this point in time, works. It is easy to run with our emotions and suggest that education is such an absolutely important aspect of our society that next to no sacrifice is too big to make in support of our universities. However, the reasoning behind arguments in favour of such a belief is sometimes shaky and needs to be reconsidered. One argument that is often proposed in support of the public funding of education suggests that since individuals with an education will benefit society via their education, that society should contribute to that person’s education. While this is true, the cost/benefit relationship is a little backwards here. You generally don’t pay for something until you “get” it in some real sense, and paying for something when you don’t know if you’re going to receive any benefit or not isn’t always wrong, but it does seem wrong if you’re going to be forced to pay for it (ie. through taxation.) This, of course, begs the question of how “society” should pay for the benefit it receives from an educated person. This isn’t as hard a question to answer as it has been made out to be. The obvious solution is to pay them money. If they have a talent that’s useful to an employer, who makes his or her living from producing a good or service to the public, then that employer will pay the educated student money to work for them. Society at large benefits from the education, and pays for it by paying money for the good or service. It’s quite simple, really. Realistically, “society” is just a blanket term for a large group of individuals and not all those individuals are necessarily going to benefit-from the education of any given student, therefore it seems unreasonable to ask for all of that society to pay for that education. In addition, not all students with an education are necessarily a benefit to all of society. I personally know of several people with a university education who aren’t much help to themselves let alone anybody else. If the education has been worthwhileirt theeyes of those people, then those people can pay a fee for those benefits. The phrase “in the eyes of those people” is very important here. I can go up to anyone and suggest to them that my education is important and give them a million reasons why, but if it’s their money that I’m asking for, the ultimate decision must rest with them. This system has one main advantage in that it alleviates the vague references to society and benefits that only serve to obfixxate the issue. Generalizations are great for making a point, but some economics lessons might help to clear things up a bit. Defining the position into market terms might anger all you socialists out there, but it does clarify the situation somewhat.

Periodical irritation I

have always been under the impression that libraries were there tc help students, to make writing those long essayseasier. Why is it then, that every time I go into the Dana Porter library, my stress level rises well over fifty percent? I’m not talking mild annoyance stress here, either. I’m talking plant a bomb and dance gleefully while the place bums to the ground stress. What’s my problem? First off, let me say that it is not the staff. They have always been quite polite and very helpful in my dealings with them. There is no problem with noise level, either. On the worst days the place is quieter than a cemetery at midnight. My problem simply is this: YOU CAN’T EVER FIND WHAT YOU NEED! I have spent five terms now on this campus and have written over twenty papers during that period. Being inpolitical science, I rely heavily on current periodicals for my material. My experience has been the same every single time I go into the periodicals section to do research.

Validity impugned? To the Editor, 1 ask all UW students to impugn the validity of Terry Stewart and Anik Sane’s article, “To All University Students” (Nov. 18). All students must question if these two individuals even attended the Federation forum with Andrew Telegdi (MP, Waterloo) and Dr. John English (MP, Kitchener) as their information was incorrect, misleading, and poorly researched. Both students failed to mention that the Federation of Students distributed well over sixty copies of our response package and “economically viable alternatives” to the proposed cuts. An unlimited supply of the green paper report were available in order to inform the. students of the issues at hand and to enlighten them as to the measures that the Federation of Students are taking on their behalf, your behalf. Stewart and Sane wrote that “it is notable that none of the students, nor the executive of the Federation of Students, provided any concrete alternatives when asked to do so by the very politicians they opposed.” That statement is not correct. If both writers were actually at the forum, they would most definitely remember Stephen Codrington citing at least six recommendations to which John English replied, “those are good suggestions, those are things 1 want to know.” As for the Federation itself, Stephen Codrington presented numerous possible solutions to the proposed cuts. Stewart and Sane failed to mention that Stephen Codrington presented three statistical overheads that depicted future financial trends whilst offering OUSA’s approach to the ICLRs and encouraging student input. In response to the Co-op issue, both Stewart and Sane failed to acknowledge the conversation about how ICLRs will affect the Co-op infrastructure at Waterloo. The Co-op system does not necessarily pay for an entire University career. In fact, ifthe ICLR system is implemented, Co-op students may have to make loan payments during their work terms. Such payments will affect housing, food, and transportation costs, not to mention tuition fees when the students are back at school. The issue was brought up at the forum and is being formally addressed by the Federation of Students. It is also interesting to mention that Stewart and Sane stated that the “Federation of Students does not represent the student body of Waterloo. A government body elected by only 10 percent.” This statement is false. In actual fact, 17% of UW students elected your Federation executive and according to recent polls, the vast majority of the University population are more than +pleased with the work that the Federation has accomplished so far. We invite all students to please come to the Federation office to become informed on issues sur-

rounding Social Policy Reform. I encourage students to come up to the Fed office to discuss any questions or concerns that they may have. Adam Lee, Academic Researcher Federation of Students


To the Editor, I would like to respond to last week’s letter addressed to all university students by the two 1A Eng students who support the Liberal government’s cutbacks to university education. I understand their argument, however I do not agree with it. I would like to address some points of their letter. 4 1) They argue a privilege and not is it a privilege? afford it? Education those that merit people, even poor

that education is a right. For whom Those that can is a right for all entry. (ie. smart ones.)

2) Co-op students do not “. , -have their entire education paid for by the co-op system.” Unless you are from a major centre, safe and relatively passable housing in Toronto and Ottawa can be expensive. This is on top of housing while at school, plus tuition, plus a $300+ fee to coop services whether you find a job or not. That’s right kids, co-op doesn’t always work out. Ask some of your senior Engineering colloagues what it was like in the last year or two.

3) It’s true that universities have traditionally been centres for academic studies but it is not true that “. . . they have become nothing more than a job training school.” Anyways, why can’t universities be a bit of both? If it is the case that universities should be solely for pure and applied research, then why shouldn’t the government pay the cost? Any benefit derived from restarch must surely be for the collective good of society. You are partially correct, students do bencfit from their education, but so does everybody else. 4) You are incorrect in stating that no one has offered concrete alternatives to the cutbacks. This student government, past and present, has proposed ideas along with other schools for alternatives such as income-contingent loan repayment programs. Furthermore, this student government does indeed have a mandate to speak for students on issues. It isn’t their fault that only 10% of the population

don’t dominate To the Editor, In response to the article “The Big Beef,” regarding sports related sexual assault (Nov. 11) my roommate and I were incredibly shocked at the seemingly glorified account of the rape made at the opening of the article. We felt in reading the opening passage that there was too much of a dramatic element to the story that was being told, as if we were being given a preview for an ABC mini-series. What we mean by this is, this subject is very serious, and we felt that the little anecdote that started this article was written distastefully. Using phrases such as “struggles her way to a telephone . . . covered with scrapes and bruises” and the overall melodrama underlying the writer’s message reinforces a stereotype of avictim being attacked in a dark alley by a total stranger, when in fact most rapes occur in acquainted situations. This account of the rape is hearsay, the writer even admitting later in the article that he/she had only heard stories of what had happened that night. Then why, may I ask, did this article start with such a graphic account of what “allegedly” happened? We feel the writer was incredibly ignorant in beginning the article this way. There is too much of a trashy, tabloid-like quality to this passage, with a blatant disregard for the target’s feelings. The woman who was assaulted does not need to re-read her experiences in such a zealous manner. Women should be aware that they are not weak victims, but rather vulnerable targets for men with no respect for themselves or other human beings. It seems so typical of the media to find a “story” in this situation, beginning in medius res, with no evidence to back it up. Did you interview this woman? Is this the account she gave you? I don’t think so. This account sounds like one taken from something the writer watched on TV. There is no need for this fierce account of the situation in order to express the severity of the crime, as not all rapes are a fight to the death. We are not saying that we feel rape isn’t violent, because it is. However, this account downplays less “physically evident” rape, as some women feel they are not justified in their accusations because they were not covered in cuts and bruises, and they didn’t get assaulted with a weapon. , Rape is something that affects a woman for the rest of her life, and affects

all women

in society.

It is

not a “story,” it should be not be glorified by the media, and, more importantly, it doesn’t always happen this way. Instead of trashing women who have been raped with these words, can we try to promote

a realistic approach to the situation, without gory and unprecedented recounts? We congratulate the writer for approaching this issue. However, the stereotypes of the “helpless victim” and “savage attacker” must be re-evaluated. Stories like this do not educate anybody about rape. Women must be given strength to overcome their roles as victims. But more importantly, men need to communicate rather than dominate.

A big Beef with the big Beef T’o the Editor, This letter is in response to T. J. Behe’s article regarding university sports and sexual assault in the November 1 lth issue of Imprint. The article states that when one or two men speak of women as objects in the locker room, others believe it is acceptable so it becomes the norm. Then it claims that most don’t agree and dislike what they are hearing. This is absurd. I cannot discern why sexist talk and attitude is unchallenged within sports teams such as the writer describes. I am unsure whether team members agree with it or if they are afraid of being seen as individuals. It is disheartening either way. It also disturbs me to read this and think that players can be so infhienced by the sexist attitudes of their coaches that they can actually find the issue of sexual assault funny. I do not understand how one person can have that much power over people in the age group of nineteen and over. While I think that this article was written with good intention, I am sick of hearing excuses about the sexist behaviour that is too commonly displayed among sports players. May I also suggest to the writer of this article to think about the attitude that may be conveyed when women are spoken of as “babes,” “chicks,” or “hotties” in or out of the locker room. Raqrtel

practicing some more are the athletes ready to compete at the varsity level. However., being selected for the team is only the beginning of a whole new set of challenges. Somehow, amid the endless stream of assignments, reports and midterms, varsity athletes fit many hours of practice, cross-training, and in case of injuries, physiotherapy into their weekly schedule. Factor in the games, competitions, and travelling time, and the end result is a huge time commitment from a lot of busy people. Why are varsity athletes involved in their sports? Is it really for the adoration of the fans as Durant claims? As a varsity athlete myself, I believe that I speak on behalf of all varsity athletes when I answer NO! When my alarm clock goes off at 5130 a.m. for morning practices, I am quite certain that every UW varsity figure skating fan is tucked snugly in bed. And upon arrival at Columbia Icefields, I am not surprised to find it deserted in the predawn hours: no adoring fans, no agents clutching their checkbooks. Varsity athletes are involved in sports for personal reasons, not for the fans or the dollar signs that may or may not materialize. We practice day after day and push ourselves to the limit for the LOVE OF THE SPORT. Any athlete will agree that there is no better feeling than going into the biggest game of the season, putting forth 110% effort, and coming away with a personal best performance of the season. There is no better feeling than knowing that you performed to the potential that you knew you could achieve and that all the hard work and preparation paid off. And you are glad to share that moment of personal triumph with teammates, coaches and of course the fans, who supported and believed in you and your athletic ability. Varsity athletics plays an important role at UW by building school spirit, providing a release from the daily stresses of university life, and by providing a link to the other universities in Canada. AAer all, the whole point of varsity athletics is to send our best athletes to compete against the best of the rest of the universities in Ontario, and ultimately across Canada. Let the games begin!


A love of the game To the Editor In his article “Sports Sawks” (Nov. 1 l), Eugene Durant states “loads of adoring fans will praise them [varsity athletes], and that they’11 make lots of cash.” Varsity athletics, however, is not about fans and money. Durant fails to recognize the hard work athletes put into their respective sports just to be able to compete at the university level. Most athletes begin participating in sports at an early age. Only after years of practicing, often at 6 or -6;30 a.m., competing, and

A Socialist writes To the Editor, Re: Stephen Younge’s op-ed piece “Is Socialism Finally Dying?” (Imprint, 18 Nov.).

Without background research, however, the few secondhand facts and ranting style of Continued


page 12






Friday, November 25, 1994

continued from page 11 Stephen’s piece serve to render the event unintelligible. I would like to correct certain misunderstanding. The International Socialists (IS) were one of about fifty groups that endorsed the October 15 demonstration. Although the IS played an important organizational role, the protest against the Reform Party brought together hundreds of diverse people. Stephen attempted to belittle this unity by calling it a “mishmash of special interests” such is how the Reform Party describes our society as a whole - except white-englishChristian-(unhyphenated)-Canadians, and profitable corporations. Stephen was particularly hostile toward the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics (OCAC). He thinks that the OCAC is a “special interest group” which is guilty of “straying from their original mandate.” Stephen says that he supports the right of any woman to terminate an unwanted pregnancy; but this is hardly genuine if he divides out the actual medical procedure as a “special interest”! Fortunately, the “original mandate” of the OCAC was not limited to securing the legal right to abortion. It aimed, rather, to secure safe and free access to abortion services within a context of comprehensive womens’ reproductive health care; to overcome the obstacles to reproductive control faced especially by working class women, women of colour, young and immigrant women. This struggle is not over, but the recent opening of a new abortion clinic in Ottawa, for example, owes everything to the strategy developed by the WAC: mass mobilization on the ground, forging links between other struggles and that for reproductive rights, and successfUlly arguing for solidarity among them. Canada is the only industrialized country that does not criminalize abortion precisely because of such militant solidarity. It’s

hollow just to say that one is a “proud supporter” of abortion rights. Ten years ago, when the WAC organized broadly based (mishmashed!) demonstrations in support of a then-illegal clinic inToronto, Stephen might well have denounced their “socialistic ideologizing.” But because of that a woman’s right to choose now stands. The Campaign against the Reform Party (CARP) was built upon similar principles as the pro-choice movement. Reform’s revisionist position on Quebec generalizes into a reactionary agenda targeting all ‘minority’ groups - i.e. the ‘mishmash of special interests’ that constitutes the vast majority. The only way to defeat this politics ofscapegoating is through a united fight back; the foremost characteristic of October 15, lost on Stephen, was solidarity. Indeed, that to change the conditions of all oppression advances each ‘mandate’ is an outlook held by more and more people these days. So the answer to Stephen’s question is: on the contrary!

White should


men jump

To the Editor, Last week I read the article “White Men Can’t Jump” (Nov. 1S), and to put it mildly, I was disgusted with the attitudes put forth by some of the members of the Hong Kong Students’ Association. The article discusses the l’ecent controversy of the Hong Kong Students’ Association Basketball tournament. According to the article, the team called “The Untouchables” were unable to have nonAsians on their team. I personally feel that restricting people

to play in a tournament because of their race is blatant discrimination! The article mentions that the sports director told one student that anyone could play “as long as they are not pure white or black.” The president of the Hong Kong Students’ Association’s excuse was that “white players are PROBABLY BIG GUYS” and that the association wanted the tournament for Asian Size. The above comment is a pathetic generalization and stereotype. Comments and rules like that put forth by an ETHNIC Association President is simple ignorance. How can someone such as an Ethnic Association President make comments like that? Isn’t the point of such Students’ Associations to promote cultural understanding within their own culture and other cultures? To not allow white players to play because they are “PROBABLY BIG GUYS” is wrong. How can you make that type ofjudgement? Not ALL white people are big Basketball players. In fact, only one of the three white players initially banned from the tournament was over 6 feet. Now, if the Hong Kong Students’ Association truly did not want the game to be dominated by size, they should have restricted the game to people of ALL RACES under six feet tall. To not allow a team to play in the playoffs because they have three white players is spineless. You can not ban players in the middle of a tournament because of such ignorant excuses such as size and race. Basketball is a game meant for all races, gender and size. Do not trivialize and ruin the

In this short chapter from the Qur’an, the broad attributes of the Creator are explained. The first line stresses the unity of God. This fact can be arrived at independently by observation and logical considerations. Observation dictates that there is a uniqueness in the design of the universe. The fact that separately justified areas of knowledge can have unforeseen complementary aspects is an indicator of this. For example, in the latter part of this century many biological processes were examined using knowledge from chemistry, revealing veritable chemical factories in living tissues which maintain life. The fact, that chemical knowledge, arrived at in a very different setting can shed light on a different level of complexity (biological) is astounding. This feat applies to many other areas of subject overlap. Physics likewise can be brought to bear on problems of chemistry and biology, with similar confidence in an underlying unity of design. Certainly a design so seamless that we may apply the same body of knowledge to objects as diverse as a DNA molecule to galaxyclusters is an indicator of a single plan, a single Designer. Now let us turn to the logical necessity of a unique Creator. Let’s consider that instead of one God, there are two (or more) Gods. This implies that these Gods in some sense (maybe not physically) are separate from each other. This means that they arc both subject

to some

rule external

to themselves,

governing their separateness. The difficulty is now apparent, where did this rule come from? A higher being must be invoked. Only the existence of a singular Creator can solve the paradox. The other alternative (to be fair to our atheist friends), is that no Creator

such irrational restrictions. In the whole scheme of things, we are all human beings. Such superficial classifica-

goes too far

To the Ed&w, As a female student here at the University of Waterloo who is about to embark into a professional field dominated by men, I am upset at the article “Cole seeks gender-neutral degree titles” (Nov. 18). I think it is carrying the women’s/feminist’s movement too far. It makes a mockery of the advances that the women’s movement has made towards equality. In my opinion I think it actually produces setbacks to equality. By changing the title of a degree obtained at university or college is as absurd as fighting for the changing of a man-hole cover to a maintenance-hole cover. This iS time and money wasted that should have been spent on fighting the problem of abuse of women on campuses. Carol Mor@uk 3rd yr. Planning

of God exists. Things are the way they are, because that’s the way they are. Things just evolve into their present state by unbiased, unholy physical laws of matter. See, the atheist will say, superstition has nothing to do with it, our universe is a material phenomenon understandable by scientific enquiry, no need for God. What atheists unwittingly do is make “the laws of the universe” their god. The shortcoming here too is evident, for the laws of the universe in which they are embodied cant predate the universe itself. Real trouble starts when the fact that the universe was one day born into existence, i.e. a Big Bang occurred, is recalled. What acrobatics must be necessary to account for that “physical process?” The verse, “Allah, the Eternal, Absolute” alludes to His omnipotence, including the domain of physical law. Indeed we use the term physical law in contradistinction to the logically possible state of lawlessness. Such terminology makes cognitive room for such related concepts as law-giver (i.e. source of laws) and justice. How is the idea ofjustice related to physical law? Let’s take electrons, which needless to say have a right to be electrons. Day in and day out they live up to the task, not faltering in characteristic properties one instant, throughout the universe. Isn’t this justice on a grand scale? The next verse, “He begetteth not, Nor is He begotten,” makes the definition of God clearer sti II. As previously demonstrated’ it is logically implausible for there to be a party to God’s divinity. “Nor is He begotten” may refer to the alleged paradox of who created God. By the verse’s admission, God is not subject to the given laws of birth and death, youth and old age, etc. As the final line states, “And there is none Like unto Him.” In other words, no idea or thing can stand as a model of God, for these are just creations in themselves. Creation is never a substitute for the Creator, whose qualities transcend that which He creates.

To the Ed&r, Are you concerned about increasing tuition fees? You should be concerned. College and university tuition fees in Ontario have risen thirty per cent in the last three years, several times the rate of inflation. On top of this, the proposed elimination of block cash transfer payments to the provinces contained in the Federal government’s Social Policy Review is “expected to cause tuition fees to double by 1997.” Public finding would be replaced with a direct Federal loan scheme. Income Contingent Loan Repayment plans (ICLR), as they are called, would dramatically alter the face of post-secondary education. They would cause a hierarchy of increasingly competitive schools. Schools would become ‘streamlined’ with a ‘reduction of overlap’ through ‘specialization’ that would eliminate access to many programs and greatly narrow choice. They would promote a more centralized administrative structure and restrict independent, democratic voices on campus. Worst of all, ICLR’s do not address the real problems of inaccessibility and low quality. Loans discriminate based on capacity to assume a large debt. You would not be considered for post-secondary education on merit alone. Those who earned less would take longer to pay the loan back accrue more interest. Further, the Liberal govemmerit’s Social Policy Review proposes a vicious assault on other social programs. Over seven billion in cuts to Unemployment Insurance, welfare and post-secondary education were announced in the 1994 budget. This is how the Liberal government proposes to reduce the deficit. A more viable way for the Liberal government to reduce the delitit is by creating a fairer tax system. Are you aware that in 1992 the Royal Bank earned $63 million and paid no tax while one of its tellers in B.C. earned $25 thousand in the same year and paid $5,732 in taxes?! Here are some other corporations that made a profit of millions without paying any income tax; Honda Canada 199 I, $47.118 million; Into 1992, $48.883 million; Midland Walwy 1992, $27.5 18 million; Mutual Trust 1992, $5.575 million; Proctor & Gamble 1992, $14,221 million; and the list goes on. In addition, the Globe and Mail Report on Business published a list of over seventy companies owing $100 million or more in deferred taxes. Some of these companies include Bell Canada, Canadian Pacific, Domtar, General Motors of Canada, I’BM Canada, Imperial Oil, Maclean Hunter, Northern Telecom, Petro-Canada, and Xerox Canada. It is time to act! On January 25, 1995, students across the nation will walk out and show the Liberal government that we are not prepared to pay. We believe that progressive efforts demand minimally: the freezing of tuition rates, no cuts to Established



(EPF), ie. federal transfer payments, the resoration of OHIP coverage for international students, and the rejection of the Income Contingent Loan Repayment plan avenue as an acceptable way out of the funding

crisis. Actions like the January 25 student protest-strike can mobilize the anger and build the solidarity to really stop these attacks proposed in the Social Policy Review. Think about it and take ACTION. Concerned individuals meet on Tuesdays at 5:30 in MC 4020. Matta Stranianek Member of the UW Anti-Cu& tion Committee


Cutbacks unacceptable To the Edi’tor, On top of the 30% increase over the last three years, the proposed elimination of cash transfer payments to the provinces contained in the federal government’s Social Policy Review is expected to cause tuition fees in Ontario to at least double by 1997. But we can barely afford our tuition fees now! As the Federation of Students put it in its response to the policy review, these cutbacks are “unacceptable.“Here, as across the country, students are “adamantly against theeliminationoffederal cashtransfers.” For we know that this would gravely restrict accessibility, and it would leave those students who do enroll with crippling debts. But this is whatUoydRuworthy proposes to do. Our anger is legitimate. There are no “hooligans” in the student movement -- just angry students who haven’t been heard in years. How do we organize our common anger to make thegovernment chunge course? Credibility at the negotiating table is not a favour bestowed by the other party. It’s a matter of power. Students have power only in unity. Our lobbying will remain ineffective until it is publicly known that thousands and thousands of angry students stand behind it. Only then can we extract commitments and accountability from the government. We need a united, visible opposition -- nut just symbolic protest. Like on November 16, when 13,000 students converged on Parliament Hill -- from Quebec and Ontario, OUSA (Queen’s) and OFS -- to tell the government that their plans are unacceptable. And they were heard. Thus we support the Canadawidestudentprotest-strickun Junumy 25 1995. When we amplify the solidarity ofNovember 16 across the country, we can prove to the govemment that all students are united and serious in our opposition to its plans. That’s how we’ll stop the cutbacks and win the tuition freeze that is required in order for fair negotiations over the funding crisis to OCcur. Betty Sparks UW Anti-Cuts



Students don’t pay To the Editor, Last week, you published ter addressed to all university

a letstu-


dents. My greatest hope is that I was the only student to read this article. Unfortunately, I am sure that others did and I reply on your behalf. Many issues were touched on in the letter, the most humorous being the attack on the Federation of Students. Humorous because, as we all know, the student government system in a university of this size is not all that complex. In fact, it is so simple that anyone in the first semester of their very first university year is fully qualified to comment on it. Actually, I’m mistaken, and I’m very sorry for it. The part about co-op students was hilarity to an extreme. I had no idea that every co-op student could pay their own was through university and have plenty of money left when they graduate. Why would they graduate? I thought that even though there is a high placement rate in co-operative programs here at Waterloo, some co-op students are left on their own to find employment. I also thought that most co-op jobs were situated in and around the Toronto area, but since I still hold firm in this belief I can rest easy in the knowledge that the rent in these areas is so very affordable that it doesn’t take a significant portion of the average student’s pay. But then again, I’m no longer as experienced with the co-op program as 1 was in 1A. I have to admit that I have no

significant basis for my knowledge. I’ve had friends in co-op for four years now, and they have all had high-paying co-op jobs and not one has paid an arm or leg for rent. In fact, very few of them actually owe money to anyone. Like me, they only owe on their credit cards and to their banks the outstanding portion of their student loans. Also, we must note here that using Waterloo’s co-;op placement records for justifying increases in tuition is a very wise thing to do. I can think of eighteen universities in Ontario off the top of my head, and they all have a co-op program like the one at Waterloo. No, wait, I think I read somewhere that they did not. Let me again remind you that this argument was used to argue for tuition hikes all across Canada. Since Waterloo has been recognized as providing the leaders of the future, I think we also owe it to these leaders to teach them how to keep their feet on the ground (not in their mouths), and not to step in anything (like they did here). Maybe that is taught in lB, I don’t remember! Jusun Newman 4A RPW

What by James Russell Imprint staff


he police have a job to do in OUT society. That job is to en sure that the law is upheld and to catch people who break the law. That job is not to decide on punishments for people or to unnecessarily interfere in their lives. Recently, the police in Peterborough greatly overstepped their bounds. When a pedophile was released from

the Police Kingston penitentiary and came to Peterborough, they issued it warning to the public, claiming that the ex-con posed a risk to children. Now, just tomake everythingcrystal clear, I amnot defending pedophiles. I am criticising the police. The police are a branch of a system that ensures that society does not degenerate into anarchy. There are the Members of Parliament and the Senate to make the laws. There are the courts to decide if those laws are valid under the constitu-

The religion of atheists by Jeff Imprint


Warner staff

‘ve had a number of interesting conversations with atheists over the years, and there’s always been something that’s been noticeable. No matter what their definition of atheism is, nomatter what they believe (orrefUse to believe), they are adamant that they do not hold any irrational assumptions, have no “faith,” and most certainly are not religious -- they are, they claim, the opposite of “religious.” 1 don’t believe them. They lt~e religious. They’re just too afraid to admit it. Please don’t misunderstand me they do not secretly believe in “God”or some supernatural force. Their fierce and passionate defence of atheism is not, however, as purely logical and rational as they would like to convince me. Their entire construct of the universe relies on a faith and assumption in certain things, things that they choose to label as rational and self evident, but are not necessarily so. My personal belief system -Catholic, but probably not strictly orthodox -- allows for an acceptance of, say, the “laws of physics.” I believe in God, an omnipotent being who has chosen to set up a series ofrelationships between matter (created by Him) that humans are still in the process of figuring out, and in the meantime have labelled through the sciences. The core of my belief is that Godset these relationships up. I believe they exist -- tomorrow there will still be gravity, the sun will shine, and my clothing will not spontaneously change into chimeras and eat me. That is because God, for whatever reason, wants it that way. Silly, perhaps. It is an unprovable belief. But I accept it as a matter of faith. The atheists I have encountered (and I wouldn’t want to lump all atheists together -- 1imagine that wouldn’t go over too well) agree with me that physical laws govern how matter relates to each other. Physics, chemistry, biology: all attempt to define the external forces governing the world (and, by assumption, the rest of the universe). They too in gravity, the sun, and the stability of their garments. But underlying this belief (which they tend to call rational, provable, and irrefutable) is a basic assumption in something that can not beproven. The “laws” of physics are nothing more than an interpretation of a patiern of events that has continued to happen, with some predictability, whenever certain conditions are met. If I pick up a coffee cup and drop it, it falls. I do this

a thousand times, and I have a lot of broken coffee cups. Why does this happen? Because of gravity. Butwhat is gravity? One can define gravity as the attraction between masses, but one could also say that gravity is the work of little invisible gnomes that are everywhere and who like to break coffee cups. The “laws of physics” deny this, but if there are zillions of little gnomes running around, how could one check? Why is “gravity” considered a law? Because it always happens; you can predict it. Why does it always happen? Because of the laws ofphysics; the law says it will always happen, and it does. Do you see the circular logic at the bake of all science? If you make a mistake in defining what is making things work (gravity vs. little invisible gnomes) you can not correct yourself: both theories could be expanded to fit the facts. I don’t mean that I believe gnomes are at the root of Newton’s discovery. But the atheists I have known refuse to accept that science is based on a faith: the faith that observed patterns will always be true because of self evident laws governing those patterns. This is simply an assumption. It is not, really, any more likely that there are laws that have simply always existed controlling everything in the universe than it is that there is some omnipotent being that created said universe and laws. Everyone must make assumptions; life is impossible without them. If I do not believe (at the subconscious level) that my floor will always be there, I’d have a hard time getting up in the moming. I “know” that things stay the same unless there is a reason for the change - a chemical reaction, a physical force, something. Atheists are simply afraid to acknowledge this isfaith. After all, if you pride yourself on being logical and not having anything as silly as a faith (like those foolish religious people), admitting that science could be viewed as a self perpetuating sham would be pretty damn scary. I do not deny that I can not “prove” God (and here I simply mean an omnipotent being, not necessarily the Cluistian “God”). When I see a beautitil forest in the bright colours of fall and say “there is evidence of God,” an atheist is perfectlyjustified in replying “there is evidence of biology in action.” I openly admit and relish that my belief is a conscious one of faith: I believe in God and can’t prove it. Unfortunately, the atheists I’ve known are too concerned with intellectually distancing themselves from “religious people” like myself to admit that they, too, have some faith. And that, I think, is sad.

tion and to decide upon the punishments for breaking those laws. And the police enforce these laws. It is not within the scope of enforcing the law to issue warnings of this sort. In fact, I do not think that these warnings should ever be issued, on the grounds that if the system works, such warnings would not ever be necessary. A warning would be necessary if there was still danger. However, according to the justice system, in this case there is not. The convict in question served his full sentence. He did not get parole, as so many do. Therefore, his debt to society is discharged, as is the debt to society ofanyone who breaks the law and fulfils the obligations placed upon them by the courts, whether that obligation involves a fine, community service, or a jail sentence. And if someone is unreformable? A constant risk to the public? The law in Canada has made provisions for such a situation, and if someone is judged to be such a threat, they can be locked up indefinitely. Anyone who thinks that this man has not paid off his debt to society should have a problem with the judicial system, not this man. If you commit a crime and receive a lenient sentence, is it your fault? What makes me angry is that the police have taken on the responsibility of the court in this situation. They have

tried to add to this man’s sentence. By telling people that he is a risk, they are obviously attempting to stir up hate against this man, I can see two motives for this. One is that they did this out of pure maliciousness. They do not like this man and so seek to make his life more unpleasant than it undoubtedly already is.

Anyone who thinks that sentences are too light should have a problem with the system, not the convicts The other is to stir up the community against him so that he will leave, and the local police will no longer be responsible for him. In effect, they are trying to dump their problems on anyone else. In fact, this is what has happened. The ex-con was going to stay in Peter-

borough because a sponsor had found him a place to stay in a church mission. Now, he has been forced to leave this. I don’t have statistics to confirm or disconfirm this theory, but I would expect that convicts who are released and who find some stability in their lives quickly would stand a better chance of staying out of trouble that one who is released and forced out of their new home, to go to a strange new town and try to start from scratch. Now, there will be people who will argue that the harm done to children by this man may well be permanent, and so he should suffer a permanent sentence of some sort. I completely agree that the harm done may be life-long for those children this man abused, but I say that the sentence isfor he courts to dtrcide. Judges only become judges aAer many years in the judicial system. They are experienced in dealing with criminals, sentences, and the law. The police do not have this experience, and neither do the people who protested outside of the house where the pedophiIe spent his brief time in Peterborough, before reluctantly departing. Subsequently, the police should not issue these warnings, as neither they nor the people to whom the warnings are issued really know what sort ofpunishment from society a lawbreaker should receive.

Warrior defensive by%imbcrly Imprint

Moser sports


hoever said nice guys fin ish last obviously didn’t get a chance to meet corner-back Gory Delaney of the Waterloo Warriors. The fourth-year Kinesiology student from Burlington has been the cornerstone of Waterloo’s defense for the past five seasons. Delaney’s hard work and dedication to the Warriors paid off last

by T.J. Imprint


Behe Sports




Thursday when he was named the CIAU’s most outstanding defensive player of the year. Delaney was understandably at a loss for words when he was awarded the prestigious President’s Trophy. “I was really excited to win,” said Delaney. “My hands were sweating and I was shaking. I could barely talk.” Delaney was also named an All-Canadian at the dinner in Toronto Thursday night.

“T think it is a really good honour [to win the President’s Trophy and be named and All-Canadian]. It is good to be recognized for your efforts,” said a very reserved and quiet Delaney. He may be soft-spoken but the 6’0, 180 pound team captain played his heart out for Waterloo andgave the Warriors everything he had over the years. “Gory made a tremendous contribution to the team as a player but his leadership was outstanding

of the Huskies. And though Saskatchewan scored the first three points of overtime, Western took is alive over offensively, and scored 13 unanswered points. Perhaps the biggest surprise came from Anthony Lane, who after being shut down by the Huskies special team defence throughout the game, ran 77 yards on a punt return and scored the game’s final points, and set a Vanier Cup record in the process. But neither of the two heroes received the game’s MVP award. That was reserved for Saskatchewan’s Brent Schneider, who broke or tied five CZAU Vanier Cup records himself. By making 36 of 67 for 528 yards, Schneider set new marks for pass attempts, completions and total yards. His four touchdowns tied a mark held by several quarterbacks, and unfortunately, his five interceptions was also a Vanier Cup first. Western’s Warren Goldie also had a great passing game, completing 26 of 41 passes for 360 yards. The winning QB had nothing but praise for both teams. Jude St. John of the University of Western “They were so tough Ontario Mustangs hoists the Vanier Cup Over his and came back to give head after his team defeated Saskatchewan 50-40. us a huge scare. Thank God we had the players we had to keep our intensity But Jagas’ best moment came short at __ _ _up,” -- sam-1s-lboldle. with four seconds left, as the

niversity football and well in Canada! Just ask the 28,000-plus fans who witnessed the best football game played in this country all year. To top it off, it just happened to be the championship game. On Saturday, the University of Western Ontario Mustangs regained their status as the CIAU’s best by defeating the Saskatchewan Huskies 50-40. And the game best de- fined how good the university season was this year. One last-minute field goal, several CIAU and Vanier Cup records broken, and a 70-plus yard punt return for a game-clinching touchdown. Not to mention a 20-point Saskatchewan comeback to leave a predominantly Western crowd on the edge of their seat chewing their purple and whites. But in the end, Westem prevailed as Vanier Cup champs for the first time in five years. “I can’t explain how good it feels,” said P.J. Gleason, the All-Canadian lineman who was partly responsible for allowing his quarterback the time to engineer the dominating Western attack. “I’ve waited a long time for this.” Gleason said Western was finally granted the award they deserved after dominating the OUAA for so long, but coming up just the Yates Cup every year. “Once we got past Laurier, there was no stopping us,” added Gleason. Western was led by Frank Jagas, the All-Canadian punter and

kicker, who by kicking five field goals and five converts, was rewarded with a ClAU record for points in one game. His 20 was two more than the old mark.

Kitchener native booted one 42 yards to tie the game at 37-37, and send the game into overtime. From that point on, Western seemed to have knocked the momentum out

The Western victory topped off a perfect Mustang season, who despite having to scrape by in two overtime battles, went 10-O for 1994.


CIAU award

this year,” said coach Dave “Tuw’ Knight, who has seen Delaney improve year after year. “Gory was able to come up with big plays in a number of games which helped us win and make it to the playoffs this year.” Delaney led the CIAU this season with seven interceptions in as many games. He also became the all-time leader in career interceptions at Waterloo with 17. “I guess I just get myself in the right position,” replied Delaney when asked about his incredible ability to snag those passes. “My second and fifth year were the most outstanding because of the amount of interceptions I had. It seems like in between there I didn’t feel as aggressive to the ball. Like when the ball was thrown in the air I didn’t feel like I was going right for it and that’s exactly what I was doing this year.” Delaney’s contribution to the team’s success did not stop on defence. He also led the team in punt returns with 3 10 yards and was a valuable return man and special teams player for Waterloo. Delaney was once again named an OUAA all-star for the

third year in a row. “Overall we played pretty well this year,” said Delaney reflecting on the season which saw the Warriors make it to the playoffs for the first time in two years. They finished the season ranked ninth in the country. “We still didn’t play to our potential. We could have played longer. However it did give people a taste of what Waterloo football is all about.” Delaney will not be returning in his familiar #27 jersey with the Warriors next year. His very successful university career with Waterloo has come to an end. “It hasn’t really hit me yet [that football is over with the Warriors],” said Delaney who hopes to pursue a football career in the CFL. “It’s pretty sad but I chose the right school to come to. I met a lot of good people and I made a lot of good friends over the years.” Delaney’s outstanding play on defense has helped to bring more respect to the football program at the University of Waterloo.

Warrior volleyball feel they’re left out financially by T. J. Behe Imprint sports ne of the school’s highest esteemed varsity teams be lieve they are being left out financially. Members of the Waterloo Warriors volleyball team believes the Athletic department are not giving them enough financial support to purchase some badly needed equipment. “They don’t give us what we deserve,” says Rene Holt, a fifth year player. “We need new equipment right now.” Holt believes his team is not getting the same money as other varsity teams, and says it’s outrageous considering his volleyball team is the highest CIAU-ranked team at this school so far this year. “Judging from how we are doing so far, the department should do something.”


Currently, the Warriors are ranked 9th in Canada, and have won all 13 of their exhibition, tournament and regular season games. “We feel like second-class athletes,” added Matt Reid, the fourthyear OUAA All- Star, who plays power-forward for the squad. “We haven’ t got the respect we deserve.” The players say they need new balls because the ones they have now are worn out from usage. “All our balls are black from wear and tear,” said Reid, They add that they have used equipment from outside the school. “Our coach had to bring in his own balls, added Holt. Athletic co-ordinator Judy McCrae said the department began the year with a dozen new balls, but they haven’t been able to last. “We lost eight or nine balls because of their bladder giving out,” said McCrae, who noted that the balls are made by a national spon-




SOT of the CIAU. The Athletic department receives the balls directly from the CIAU. “We can only work as fast as the national level.” Holt also believes they should also have an extra trainer to work with the team. “Most other teams have two,” he said. Currently, the volleyball team has one. McCrae said it is policy to provide one head therapist, and sometimes a team will be provided with a junior trainer. Regarding funding, McCrae added that the volleyball team must be responsible for coming up with some cash on their own, such as financing for road trips. “They want to go to Laval, but we don’t have the budget. So they have to fund-raise to go.” Coach Ed Price declined to comment on the situation.

Six weeks ago I wrote a rather spirited article about why the Waterloo student body should go and take in an OUAA hockey game. With the calibre of hockey higher than anything you’ll find in Canada today, a Warrior hockey game seems the logical choice for the avid hockey fan. But upon arriving at Columbia Ice Fields for a practice session, I then realized that even if huge amounts of people wanted to see a game, they couldn’t.

See, the problem is that only a couple of hundred people could fit into the building at any one time. And that’s pushing it. “I don’t know about the engineering,” said Coach Don McKee. “The place is cozy, but you can’t get anybody in here.” Why would the university consider building a rink with no seats? What happens when the playoffs come, and the majority of the student body wants to see their team come and kick some ass? The university would have saved money if they just built an outdoor rink, and had some local

kids carry buckets up from Columbia Lake to keep it smooth. It’s pretty much the same as what ‘s there right now. The only positive thing is the rink has heat lamps to keep the 100 or so fans warm during a game, but feeling like a re-heated box of McDonald’s fries does doesn’t do me any good if I can’t bring my friends. So when the playoffs come, don’t be surprised if it’s an away game,

(By the way, I’m not going to help shovel off Columbia Lake if they decide to hold the game here.)

Warrior basketball loses two close ones in Toronto By Kimberly Moser Imprint Sport


nexperience will hurt you in close games. That’s was the lesson that the basketball Warriors learned when they travelled to the annual Toronto Metro Classic Tournament this past weekend. The Warriors were hoping to regroup in Toronto after their disappointing showing at the Naismith Classic, held in Waterloo the week before. Waterloo went up against the host Toronto Blues in their first game. It was a very close until the end, but the Blues eventually won 77-67. Sean Van Koughnet led the team in scoring against Toronto with 25 points and eight rebounds. Mark Hopkins added 12 points, and Mike Stroeder added

eight before they both fouled out. In their second game, the Warrior’s took on the York Yeomen. Once again, it was a close match-up until the last few minutes of the game, when the Yeoman pulled out the win. Inexperience was once again the downfall for the Warriors. Veterans Van Koughnet and Hopkins once again led the team in scoring, with 19 and 18 points respectively. Nick Poulmenos scored 14 points and Ashoak Grewal scored eight before they each fouled out. Coach Kieswetter understands that it is going to take a while for the rookies and other team members to gain the valuable game experience that Waterloo will need to be a contender in their regular seson Play * “We are realistic in our expectations. We lack a lot of experi-

ence. Both the losses this weekend were close and we could have won. Both the losses came in the last few minutes of the game and that’s where the inexperience shows the most.” Despite the two close games this past weekend, Kieswetter realizes that there is still a lot of time until the regular season starts in January. “We are not discouraged by any counts. We have lots of talent. We just have to provide the inexperienced players with more game time. We still a very exciting team to watch.” The Warriors will have another chance to gainvaluable game experience against the University of Ohio-Cedarville tomorrow at 4 Pm* Kieswetter expects Cederville to be a very tough and explosive team to watch.

Finlay, and hooker Adam Donald. Humphreys, a front row man himself, characterized the selection as “excellent.” He added that his team has always had “one of the best front rows in the league. This is just acknowledging that.” Both all-star flankers are also Warrior players; open side flanker Randy Martin, and team captain Anthony Beaty on the blind side. In the backs, winger Josh Windsor capped off his collegiate career with acknowledgement as one of Ontario’ s best, and fullback Brian Anderson rounded out the playing contingent of Waterloo all-stars. Cattell, Humphries and Sage received recognition, taking the team from a l-6 record in 1493, to an unbeaten 7-O season this year. Sage said that this years selec-

ears of arduous training wi I I reach a climax on Nov. 27 as triathlete Barry Young represents Canada at the World Triathlon Championships in New Zealand. Young, 30, of Waterloo, has found training for the championships a strenuous and time-consuming task which takes motivation and endurance. A triathlon consists of three events. The length of each can vary, but generally triathletes swim 1.5 kilometres, bike 40 kilometres and run 10 kilometres. To train, Young balances a busy schedule between his job as a quality service officer at Manulife Financial in Waterloo, and his active life as a triathlete. He describes himself as a “very serious recreational triathlete.” A triathlete spends hundreds of hours training, says friend and fellow triathlete Nole Staut. Young attributes his skills as a triathlete to an athletic background in St. Catharines where he was born. He was a lifeguard during his youth in high school, a job that enhanced his swimming skills, He enjoyed both running and biking when he was young, eventually improving his skills as he got older. “Barry is very strong on the bike and during the run,” says Stauton. After attending university, Young gained a significant amount of weight and he cycled and ran to lose the weight. That led to his eventual interest in triathlons. He went from about 225 pounds to 158 pounds as a result of his training, which required focus and discipline. Young attributes his discipline to a good work ethic. He says he rarely misses workouts. Young’s hectic daily schedule begins with work from 7:30 a.m. to I1 ;30 a.m. He runs or swims until about 1 p.m., returns to work until 5 p.m., and ends the day with a twohour swim or bike ride. He also works out on weekends. Flexible hours at his job enable him to have enough time to work

out, but to handle such a hectic schedule he has to be highly motivated. “You want to find out how good you can get at it,” he says. He wants to know how he will fare against the competition. “At times it can be frustrating,” says Barry’s wife Susan, who doesn’t mind the idea of a husband who is adedicated triathlete. “Barry can be testy a day or two before a race. But I guess that’s a part of being so driven and focused.” Young said his relationship with his wife is unaffected by his participation in triathlons because she has her own interests outside of their relationship as welLYoung qualified for the triathlon in New Zealand by finishing first at a qualifLing race in Welland, Ont. on Labour Day weekend, where he competed against some of the world’s best professionals. He said his time was fantastic 1:55:X The average time for a professional triathlete to successfully complete a course is about two hours. It was a surprising victory for Young who, prior to the Welland race, had a disappointing finish at a race in Kelona, B.C. where he finished with a time of 2: 10. “To this day, I have no idea why I didn’t race well in Kelona,” said Young. “I sometimes feel frustrated when I can’t explain why I’m not having a good workout.” He said he doesn’t often endure frustration because of the personal enjoyment he receives from training and participating in triathlons. Training for a triathlon in Canada can be difficult and often strenuous because of the climate. “It’s tough on Canadians to train for triathalons, especially tough on eastern Canadians,” says Young. Conditions in eastern Canada are not as conducive to training as British Columbia and the southern United States, where the climate is more temperate. “Even daylight savings makes it tough, because I have to be home by about 5 p.m. to give me enough time to train before it gets dark,” he says. Training is difficult for Canadian triathletes and so is the pain

tions are “a really good reflection of what we have been doing here at u-w.” Four of the seven all-stars will show up as returning players for next year’s season. The unprecedented nine selections closes out an extremely successfid year for the rugby Warriors, who saw themselves dominate both the varsity and junior varsity ranks of the OUAA’s B division. Making up the rest of the team were four players from the RMC Redmen, two from the Brock Badgers and one each from the UofT blues and Laurier Golden Hawks. The till-star team is selected each year, based on voting by the league’s coaches. Humphreys said that he thought “they did a good job of picking a representitive squad.”

Finals that all triathletes endure. Young recalls a race in which he was accidentally kicked in the face by anot her triathlete about 300 metres into the one-kilometre swim. “My goggles came off and I lost a contact lens,“says Young. He decided not to finish the race with only one contact lens. Throughout the years he has been a triathlete, Young has never been seriously injured. However that doesn’t mean he hasn’t endured his share of pain. He says pain comes with anaerobic threshold work-outs, essentially a far more intense style of circuit training. During a running workout, he travels at his fastest speed for 400 metres, walks for 100 metres, and runs at his fastest speed once again for another 400 metres. Young also runs a one mile “loop” of hills, meaning he runs straight up an incline for about a mile, Workouts of this difficulty don’t usually affect Young, though he recalls an occasion when he went out to dinner with friends following a workout when he did have some diffkulty. “I was drifting in and out of the conversation,” says Young. It’s passible, he says, that he may have had heat stroke from a work-out earlier in the day. So why endure such intense physical exhaustion? “You do it because you want to find out how good you can be,” Young says. “It gives me a chance to represent my country and find out where I stand compared to the world’s best triathletes. “I’m doing something not a lot of people will have the chance to do.“He is contemplating turning professional. The idea of obtaining sponsorship appeals to Young. Young is anxious to find out how he will fareagainst the world’s best next month in New Zealand. He continues to train every day in preparation for the big event. “You really have got to have it in you,” says triathlete and friend Tony Evans. “Barry is dedicated, focused, and he knows what his goals are.”

he annual University of To ronto swimming invitational brought the best varsity swimmers from Ontario and Quebec together for one day and provided a good mid-season measuring stick for coaches and athletes of Waterloo. As the day wore on it became evident that Waterloo’s swimming didn’t quite measure up to pre-season expectations. Assistant Jay Nolan was quoted as saying “It doesn’t count until OUAA and OWTAA’s. After two weeks of training over Christmas holidays this team is going to surprise a lot of its closest rivals.” The Athenas seem poised to upset some larger teams as Tereza Mace1 finished fourth in the 400m freestyle and was in the top ten along with teammate Noelle Aplevichafier the 200m backstroke.

for the 1500m freestyle. Coach Cartlidge lamented over the way that Co-op work terms can wreak havoc on an athlete’s training regime after the meet. “Some of our swimmers have the misfortune of being placed in areas where the nearest pool is hundreds of kilometres away.” For example: premier sprinter and veteran swimmer Ian Hunt, an engineering student, has found himself working in such places as Fort Francis and Vancouver for weeks at a time. The time away from the pool, not to mention the travel and jet lag, severely hurt an athlete. Swim season runs from September to March, which makes it frustrating for the coaches and the team because they have to contend with Co-op all year round. The swim team stands to lose even more of the team next term due to work placements. Varsity swimming travels to Queen’s, McGill and Ottawa this weekend.

Captain Kara Rice led the way with thirds in both the 5Om and 1OOm breast-strokes. Veteran teammate Jen Reatty added a fourth in the 200m breast while sophmore Deanna Hlywka finished in the top ten in the 200m free. The Warriors fared no better, despite valiant efforts from the likes of Ed Furs who was fourth in both the 50m freestyle and 200m butterfly* Furs, along with captain Chris Nagy, placed in the top eight for the 1OOm fly. Nagy was also third in the 5Om backstroke and sixth in the 1OOm free. Veteran sprinter Ian Hunt hoped on a plane from his Co-up placement in Fort Francis to compete in the 5Om freestyle special. He finished fifth in this elite event for competitors with an entry time of 24.3 seconds or better. Perhaps the most impressive swims were from the milers Brian Roughley, Trevor Denstedt and Jay Cull who all finished in the top ten

That was obvious from the crowd’s reaction, most of whom stood by idly, mouth-breathing, to the newer material. Once the older, more recognizable Fireman stuff came on though, on songs like “Collide, ” “Flower,” and that

album’s title-track, the crowd went ape-shit. The most fervour given any of the new stuff was reserved for “University,” a song most of the crowd had already known for a couple of years. They moshed like nuts to that too, until bassist Brendan Canning stopped mid-song to castigate one of the over-zealous bouncers. You could’ve heard a pin drop. That, in a nutshell, is the dilemma facing hHEAD: they’re still a bit unsure of themselves and so is their audience. They’re good, doubtlessly, but do they have what it takes to be great?

The Barenaked Ladies appearing at Centre in the Square Monday, December 19

by Pat Merlihan special to Imprint


ack for a crack to break the novelty routine that won them nationwide attention are the Barenaked Ladies on the Maybe You Should Drive tour, The days of busking, hanging out in the burbs, and singing about Icraft Dinner are long

behind these boys...or are they? Catching a leg of the tour at Western University’s Alumni Hall last Saturday is a pretty good idea what is in the works for Kitchener. It was fairly evident from the crowd response that the audience was there because they missed out on the prior tour promoting Gczrdort. The new singles “Alternative Girlfriend,” and “Jane” were well recieved but it was “Enid,” “Brian Wilson,” and “If I had a Million Dollars” that were the real crowd pleasers of the evening. Not much of a response was given to any of the other selections on Maybe You Should Drive. Prior to their show, Imprint was able

to talk to Tyler Stewart for a few moments about recent events. It could be said that a smile crossed his face when asked to comment about June Rowlands’ defeat of the Toronto Mayoral election. At a Toronto appearance this summer the Ladies declined her offer of the key to the city as +‘...shewas just trying to win a couple of votes.” No smoky bars are scheduled on this tour as ‘I... it was a band decision because the quality of sound is so much better in theatres.” This can definitely be said about Kitchener’s Centre in the Square as it boasts

When asked to comment on a Toronto newspaper’s view that they the Barenaked Ladies be driven over by a truck, Tyler passed it off saying “It is incredibly Canadian that the support groups that build you up, are the first to chop you down when you reach a certain level,” When this fab five are together they act like giddy school girls which is a tad annoying, however all the young kids with their parents are bound to fall over their tongues with awe of this bigger than life Raffl show.

he UW Drama Department’s second offering for the year is its rendition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Having their distinct approach to it, the company has produced a fine and memorable presentation. Johnathon Goad’s Macbeth is well fleshed out and his descent into madness is convincingly portrayed. From his initial murderous rage to his continually overwhelming feelings of guilt, a truly tortured Macbeth is created. Goad’s abililty to switch remarkably quickly between Macbeth’s varying attitudes is especially notable near the end where Macbeth finally meets MacDuff on the battlefield. Sarah Weber’s portray1 of Lady Macbeth is masterfully done, and beginning with her first soliloqouy and her subsequent meeting with Macbeth, we are given the portrait of a incredibly ambitious and ruthless woman who uses every power at her disposal to bend her husband to her will.

As the three witches, Danielle Ament, Julie MacLeod and Susan Tschirhart portray maliciousness incarnate. They happily tell their prophecies to Macbeth and

Banquo, knowing the terrible tragedies they will spawn, and then contentedly take their leave, leaving them both very confused. Sporting masks on both the front and backs of their faces reiterates their two faced natured and as their lines and actions all mesh together well, they present seamless portrayls of their characters. The rest of the supporting cast is also well cast with special attention going to Tim Roger’s Duncan, David Brown’s Banquo and Shari Deamude’s Lady Macduff all of whom are victims of Macbeth. As well, Joey Martin’s portrayal of the originally naive, but eventually responsible Malcom, and Dylan Robert’s brave and noble Macduff nicely contrast Macbeth’s shallowness. Van Dijk’s unique approach to the show pertains to how he costumes his actors. All of the males have shaved heads and for the battle scenes are dressed in gladiator type outfits or m2 trenchcoats. The females are also dressed i,n fashions ranging from the 40’s to modern, excluding Lady Macbeth who is usually dressed in long flowing outfits and the witches who wear more traditional costumes. While it is quite common not to dress Shakespearean characters in period garb, I found it detracted from the overall believeability of the play.

The one really



element was the body paint the men were decorated with, giving them a tribal, animalistic qualify. Overall, Macbeth was an excellent piece of work. Look forward to more from the drama department next February. ing

again. To the best of my knowledge, Sony put out his last album, but dumped him after poor sales. Oh well, it does0 matter as long as there will be more Art records. Despite this good news, Art was still bitter. When people cheered after he announced a song title, he replied”It’s just a song. Rock and Roll can’t change anything.” He also broke up the silence between songs with comments like “Fuckin’ showbiz, ” “I’m such a liar, such a wimp,” and at one point, as he lit up another cigarette, he yelled out “Hey hey Export A, where’s my fUcking cancer?” He thought about this last comment for a while, and then said resignedly, “If I was an astute businessman, I’d apologize.” He then launched into the next song. He played for about an hour and a half, which is a pretty long set. He played songs from all three of his past albums and mixed in a lot of new ones too. He put everything he had into very single song, and at times I thought that he wouldn’t be able to go on. However, once the crowd yelled for an encore, he came back out almost immediately, explaining “We’ll be right with you. The band needs to pee and take a smoke. They’re not getting paid much.” Once the band came back, they did five more songs, bringing the set tb almost two hours! If you ever want to see an amazing rock and roll show, I can recommend no one quite as highly as Mr. Bergmann. Amazing songs, incredible energy; an unbelievable night.

uring an average year, many bands will come and go from a typical university town like Waterloo. Although the bands will represent a wide range of diversity within the rock and pop genre, few bands truly challenge the musical conventions that the typical student is used to. Black Freighter hopes to change that. Black Freighter is the name taken by a group of local musicians who are going to perform a minimalist piece of what can loosely be termed “performance art” this Monday at Phil’s Grandson’s Place. The group is primarily of Byron Dueck, Michael Tamblyn, Todd Harrop and Mark Norris.

The group are going to perform “Coming Together” a minimalist work composed by Frederic Rzewski based on a letter written by Samuel Melville while he was serving time in a New York penitentiary. Melville was convicted of several bomb attacks, including ones on the Chase Manhattan bank during the late 1960s. Melville was also an FLQ sympathizer who helped several FLQ members into the United States. The piece relies heavily on repetition and attempts to draw the audience heavily into the work. The piece is based around twelve lines from one of the many letters Melville wrote while in prison. The reading (performed by Bernard Kearney) is performed by reading the first line, then the first and second line, then the first second and third line, etc. Once all the lines have been read, the poem is then read once again, reading all the lines, then only the first eleven, then the first ten, etc.

The music itself works as an artistic palindrome, where the second half of the score is a mirror image of the first half. Bernard Kearney, who will be reading the piece, says that the group sees this work as an attempt to bridge the gap between classical and contemporary music. “Classical music works in a strange, tomb-like atmosphere where the audience is seated and no one can leave or enter, and the audience is forced to concentrate on the music. ‘fWe see this as an experiment to see if this kind of music will still draw that attention voluntarily. People can walk around and talk and leave and get something to drink, but we hope that the work


keep the audience’s

attention.” If successful, perhaps Black Freighter could be the vanguard of a new musical movement that will bridge the gap between classical and contemporary music.

midst the seemingly immortal runnings of the gala Toronto theatre scene, (resist no longer, buy Phantom by phone) and the monotony of Miss Saigon, Les Miserables and Show Boat, it appears there is a breath of fresh air about to pass through the Canadian atmosphere. And the Feb. 20, 1995 premiere of The Who’s Tommy couldn’t come soon enough. Father of the musical extravaganza, Pete Townshend, and his dynamic production team, including Toronto-native and director Des McAnuff, were on hand for a press-conference at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto Wednesday. The birth of Tommy came in 1969, as a rock-opera performed alongside the King of Rock n’ Roll. by The Who, detailing the life of The king ofToronto a child who is traumatized after witnessing a murder.

Multicolored dresses that arc short and flowing reveal dancing legs glossed in support hose. The women’s costumes are flattering to their figures but really tacky with polka dots and other loud summer patterns. Overal 1 their costumes are bolder, shorter and tackier than the their male counterparts. With an orchestra almost the size of the cast they were mostly concealed under the stage, Every action on stage that had an orchestral sound effect was magnificently timed. They sounded beautiful and were well appreciated by the audience. The dramatic aspelt left something to be desired. The most talented performer in this aspect was Dirk Lumbard, the recipient of the 1989 Tyrone Guthrie Award. He is back at the Royal Alexandra Theatre for his third time in the lead role as Bobby Child. Listed as a “triple threat performer,” Dirk is a fantastic actor, dancer and singer. His personal charisma and talent shine through to make him the most enjoyable character out of the whole cast of thirty. Camilla Scott, who plays the leading lady role of Polly Baker, starred on Days Of Our Lives for

two years and appeared in Three Men and a Baby, which are two of her many off Broadway experiences. Her singing is strong and beautiful, however her portrayal of Polly is not very believable. The story line is entertaining and fUnny but painfully predictable and transparent. What makes this show great is the creativity that is found in the choreography of the memorable “Slap That Bass,” and “I Got Rhythm.” In “Slap That Bass,” the women are transformed into human basses. Through an elaborately choreographed dance the women are given a long piece of rope that is chopped for them. They fold it in half, stand on the middle of it hold the two ends and the men pluck the rope like bass strings. Another visual delight was “I Got Rhythm.” During this number the men dance with large picks and then the girls balance themselves one leg on each side of the pick. They stand straight so that their body line is the same as the pick’s handle and then the men swing them as if they were picks. A multi-talented and experienced cast makes up this company. Both young and old, seasoned and debating artists of many different talents comprise this marvellous cast. Two of the mny well experienced performers in the cast are: Victor A. Young, who plays Bela Zangler, and Barbara Hamilton, who plays Bobby’s mother. Victor is a Dora Award winner who has over one hundred and fifty stage credits to his name and Barbara is a recent recipient of the Gemini Award for lifetime achievement, who is back at the Royal Alex for her “13th or 14th time.” Other members of the cast

that are making their debut performance in their professional careers are Leslie Wall (Swing) and Rochelle Forland (Vera). Leslie, who was crowned “Miss Dance of America 1994” and “Miss Dance of Canada” in 1993 is also a dance teacher and choreographer. Many other of these multi talented performers are writers, directors and producers themselves. Mary Ellen Mahoney (Irene Roth) has had four of her plays professionally produced; she’s also a playwright in residence at Tarragon Theatre in 1989-90. Erin Keaney who plays Betsy is another very ambitious talented member of the cast. A Sheridan College graduate, she is writing a two act one woman play. As well she just finished producing the

raised money for UNICEF. Many other cast members are Shaw and Stratford Fesitval performers who have also appeared on Broadway and all over the world. One of the highlights of the evening was when Colin Heath, portraying Billy, was pretending to be shot in a make-believe bar fight. He fell from the second level of the saloon set, onto the bar, onto the floor and half way across the set. This was a magnificently choreographed fall. It looked real painful and tinny all This stunt at the same time. recieved a warm and enthusiastic applause fi-om the audience. The finale was full of magnificent costumes and ended the show nicely. If you’re looking for a great show filled with humor, talent and great visual aspects in set design and choreography then the Gershwin musical comedy, Crtzzy For You is a great choice.

Sex, Art Vamps and Tramps New Essays Cam ilk Paglia 456 pp. $19.95 by Sandy Atwal ImprintstafF



Friday, November 25,1994

minently quotable, equally comfortable discussing either pop culture or works of antiquity, the enemy of contemporary feminism and one of the most talked about intellectuals in recent years, Camille Paglia is one of the most erudite and controversial thinker to appear on the literary horizon in decades - and she wants you to know it. Her first work, Sexual Personae was a 7UO-page study that wasn’t published until twenty years after it was written- When it finally did see the light of day in 1990, however, her brash style and counter-feminist position immediately created a stir. Her thought-provok-

and Camille

ing links between the Marquis de Sade, Lord Byron and Elvis Presley were revolutionary, Her 1992 follow up, Sex, Art, and American Culture continued in the same vein and her following grew. Vamps and Tramps is a collection of recent essays that establishes what Camille Paglia has been up to recently and demonstrates how wide and varied an influence Paglia has had in contemporary society. Peppered with references to Bob Dylan and Oscar Wilde, Vamps and Tramps is a witty, bitchy, humorous and most of all practical guide to the 90’s. What’s most refreshing about Paglia’s views is that they are grounded in things as they are, not as she thinks they should be. That’s not to say that she’s a defeatist. Her constant comparisons between pop culture icons and pagan goddesses reveal the intellectual behind the leatherjacketed, cigarette smoking 60’s

This is best demonstrated in “Glenda and Do DownI Camille town,” a short film in which Paglia joins Glenda Orgasm, a New York drag queen on a sojourn through New York City. The film reaches its climax when the two agitators run into a group of antipornography protestors, who for years have haunted 6th avenue, waving placards featuring pictures km Hzrstler and Penthowe. The confrontation, instigated by Paglia and Orgasm turns into a shouting match which, truth be told,

quickly devolves into name calling, but is interesting if only for Paglia’s willingness to physically confront her opponents in a move counter to the tradition of ivory tower isolation. Paglia is not, as her critics would like us to believe, totally out to lunch. She is not pro-rape or a homophobe. Anyone who comes to these conclusions is obviously giving Paglia only a superficial perusal. For example, Paglia believes that businesses should have sexual harassment guidelines but, as she states, “a sex-free workplace is neither practical nor desirable, people meet spouses at work, work is a natural place to start a relationship.” Such statements, although somewhat out of line with her libertarian stance, can hardly be seen as the belief of a crackpot. However this is not to say that she’s not deliberately provocative. She is antagonistic - she likes to be thought of as a bitch. That’s o.k. because she is a bitch, but in being so outwardly belligerent, she risks Iosing an audience which will reject her out of hand. Paglia is obviously a powerful, sophisticated writer and her point of view rings too true to be dismissed out of hand. If she is dismissed, it is at the peril of her critics.

noted, oft-mentioned. Her libertarianism works extremely well as a s&o-political base for her propornography, anti-feminist stance. Paglia’s pugilistic literary style carries over her public periona. Several interviews, such as one from CNN’s Crossfire and a conversation with Wton in a short Juca Babini demboth her quickess and her te-


proclivity towards creativity and a better understanding of beauty.

think I failed a midterm over this book. I’m not positive; I haven’t had the guts to look up my mark yet. But seeing as I spent most of the evening before that test reading Birdsong rather than studying, anything over a C- will be remarkabJe. Oh well; it’s only Sociology. The critics, according to the book’s jacket, found Birdsong “stirringly erotic.” Aside from a few (very) sexually charged scenes, it wasn’t terribly erotic. I did find it extremely well written, moving, impossible to put down, and highly entertaining. Sebastian Faulks’ fourth novel tells the story of Stephen, a young man sent to France in 1910. He stays with the owner of a factory, and falls in love with the owner’s beautiful young wife, Isabelle. The tension between Isabelle and Stephen as their illicit affections develop is almost unbearableThe affair plays out with an astonishing lack of cliche, and the intense passions and bonds, of loyalty present never ring false of overblown. This is not a Harlequin Romance. That only sets the stage for the rest of the story,



to the trenches of 1916 at the Somrne. Birdsong, while certainly not a “historical” book and to a degree covering grounds that other First World War novels have explored, neither tires the reader

with shallow depictions nor tries to shock with graphic acounts of the horrors of trench warfare. Instead, Faulks focuses on the psychological mind-set of front line officers who live with death for weeks on end, accentuated with periods of mass slaughter. Stephen is an infantry lieutenant, his best and only friend a captain of a company of miners digging tunnels dozens of feet below the battleground. The men are ex-


hausted and insensitive to the bodies, rats, and filth around them, and yet the tension in the days before the Somme attack is palpable. Scenes underground are filled with claustrophobia, punctuated by brief, chaotic violence as German counter-tunnels discover the men toiling in the dark. Stephen’s love affair with lsabelle six years earlier forms

the core of his survival -- he refuses to believe in anything, and can subsequently can deal with the destruction around him. Yet he too feels terror before “going over the top,” and does everything he can to live, despite believing that he wants to die. Love, of others and for life, is a theme throughout the book. Characters who refuse to feel anything anymore find their throats constricting when death is immanent, and realize that their love for others -- romantic or platonic -- is more important, and more dangerous, than the war around them. They must love, or they cease to be human. Stephen learns once again to care for others, even those who he knows will die and thus hurt him again. The book ends on a split note. Dual time lines, of the war and of Stephen’s granddaughter in the 1970’s, end with solid completion. The Armistice ends the war; the granddaughter learns about her grandfather’s role. The ending is not completely satisfying, however. Perhaps bending to a need to tie everything up, the granddaughter is given a nice, neat, recap of Stephen’s post war life, similar to the five second recaps at the end of American Grufiti. Unfortunately it contrasts with the tense, slow development that takes place in the rest of the novel, and feels cheap. While solid characters afways make you want to know what happens “after,” the brief afierthought that Faulks puts in dimini shes the ending. Which is really too bad, because the first 405 pages are just terrific.

hecking a suspicious commotion on his roof, an unsuspecting man receives a unique gift one Christmas eve. The chance to be Santa Claus physically and emotionally transforms this doubting Scrooge. Trouble ensues when the magic of Christmas steps over the line of reality, and tries to coexist. With many hijinks along the way, the experience opens his eyes and tests his faith.

Ex-wife Laura and husband Neil create some of the humour of the picture, which often falls flat. They take away Scott’s visitation rights because of his so called Santa Claus charade, and send out the cops when Charlie is “kidnapped.” With their reasoning shot full of holes, they fmally admit defeat. For music, the film serves up variations of old Christmas songs. With nothing really memorable, it desperately needs some true classics from Frank and Bing to give it more schmaltz. Loreena McKennitt’s The Bekls of Cbstmas is nice, but a good soundtrack can mean the life or death of a film. In this case, it’s not necessary, as Allen carries it all. Not a bad movie for the holidays, The Sunta CZczuse will attract lots of kids, parents, and money. Simple and entertaining, it leaves sev-

by Greg Krafchick Imprint staff When people ask me to describe Veruca Salt to them, the best explanation I can come up with is that they’re a cross between The Breeders and.. .well, The Breeders. This is perhaps a disservice however, as this rather cheapens Kim Deal and co.3 good name. This is not to sa; that Ameriit’s can Thighs is a bad album; actually a very strong first effort. However, if one was to differentiate the two bands, it would come down to the fact that Veruca Salt have some growing to do, to,make their sound come to full fruition. The ecleticism present on Last Splash came from experience at writing, which was earned by Kim in one of the best American bands of the 80’s. But enough of dwell-

As the originators of sound bite use, Big Audio samples .eve-

ing on The Breeders, you’re probably saying.. . Hailing from the ‘Pumpkins hometown of Chicago, Veruca Salt enjoyed a dizzying rise to prominence, which started last May with the release of their debut single “Seether.” College radio and the infamous KR0Q in L.A. got hold of it, as did the British press, with all of them hailing it as a sort of “Cannonball Part 2.” Of course, the music biz being what it is here in Canada, it took us until bloody October to wake up to all of this, which was just in time for the release of this album. So now we have it, thirteen tracks of fuzzy guitar pickings and thrashy tin. If you’ve heard “Seether” you’ll know exactly what to expect, and if you haven’t then you have one of the best singles of the year to look forward to. Besides that, this album verily, um, seethes with potential pop singles, such as “All Hail One Blind,” and Me, ” “Number even “Victrola.” Welcome changes of tempo are provided by “Fly” (call this “Mad Lucas 2”) and “Twinstar,” which serve to show that they realize different dynamics are needed to sustain this entirely guitar-driven album (read this carefully, Noel Gallagher). Nina Gordon and Louise Post are the two harmonizing singers and main songwriters on the album, sugarcoating our ears most admirably. No doubt this band has potential, and it will be interesting to set if or how they will grow on subsequent albums. For now though, fans of U.S. college rock can delight to this rather fine effort. Recommended.

by ChrisAldworth Imprint staff With their third release, America, The Black Crowes southern fried rock hits rock bottom, and it hits hard. The Black Crowes’ new material is devoid of the catchy hooks, the inspired blues meandering and the deep southern charm that defined the earlier releases. Champions of the marijuana cause, it seems that all those hits from the bong have had an effect on the musical output and creativity of the Robinson brothers. America winds itself through the expected hazy gloom of bluesy rock, but this time fails to make an impression. The music drifts along aimlessly, full of pointless pseudo-blues licks and wafiy organ. The distinctive vocals of Chris Robinson are lost among the countless mellow numbers and whacked out instrumental portions. All the admitted smoking and drinking seem to have killed enough braincells to prevent the creative juices from flowing. Although the Crowes strive to recre-

ate the 60’s Allman Brothers’ drug-induced sound, they fail miserably this time around. Amutica is destined for the delete bins faster than you can slug back a shot of Jack Daniels. On America the Crowes try to recreate their past two albums all over again, only this time it just doesn’t cut it. Formula rock can only take you so far. “Ballad In Urgency” is just a remake of “Thorn In My

Pride” and the rest of the songs are more of the same. The Black Crowes have always mirrored a musica style from the past. Even in their bygone retro style, there should be some room for musical progtession, unfbrtunately the Crowes don’t see it that way. Reliving the sixties was fine for the first two albums but lets face it: not everyone can be like the Gratetil Dead.


Finally, from the coolest punk label, a sampler of punk music that will grab you by the short and curlies. 1994 has been an incredible year for Epitaph with hit albums from Offspring, NOFX, Gas Huffer and Rancid -- almost single-handedly revitalizing the growing Southern California punk scene. Looking for innovation in punk music ? Epitaph is the label to look to for promoting bands that have more than put in their dues. Punk is in its prime for the first time since Johnny Rotten and

Punk-ORama is a great taster for those that are leery of picking up a punk album. Epitaph’s handpicked assortment are bound to break new waves in music circles. For those that have recently joined the Offspring phase, Punk-O-Rama may be worth your while. “Session” from their Ignition album, and “Jennifer Lost The War” from Q$p-ing are ~0 gems that rank up there with “SelfEsteem,” and “Bad Habit.” Bad Religion --who also owns and runs the Epitaph label- kicks off the album with their1 988 “Do What You Want” hit from Suffer. Cutting half dozen albums with Epitaph Bad Religion have joined the majors with their recent release Stranger than Fiction on Atlantic, Also with new albums this year and tracks highlighted on Punk-O-Rama are Down By Law with “Bright Green Globe,” Gas Huffer with the high flyin’ “Crooked Bird,” Rancid’s “Hyena,” and NOFX’s social anthem “Don’t Call Me White.” Refreshing are bands like Total Chaos, Pennywise and Wayne Kramer

by Ed Richards special to Imprint I can sum this recording up in one word - Fresh. The first chart single for these three attractive females, “90’s Girl”, is a true dance vibe which reveals a positive, modern-day attitude for women in society. Another serious track is “Krazy,” with a smoother flow, it has a “cruising in the ride on your way to a house party” type sound. One aspect of Blackgirl I know some will wonder about is their similarity to SWV (Sisters with Voices). Question: Are they a carbon copy of the true sisters? Answer: never. Blackgirl has a completely original sound and style of their own - unlike other members of the sudden emergence of female groups in the past year. With superior musical and singing ability, these ladies kick harmony like it’s never been heard before. Tracks like “Home” contain intensity so pure 1 swear I had to wipe a tear from my eye. A true demonstration of skills plain and simple, this album contains some sensuality for a little bedroom, silk-sheet f’lavour in “Can’t Live Without You,“‘and a taste of some old-school-style, feel-good beats with “Let’s Do It Again.” Treat U Right has a slick mix of R+B, funk, and a twist of change for those who aren’t down with the gangsta’ girls. This debut has made a very professional entrance into the music world with a unique and truly beautiful sound.

It’s pretty hard to review a movie soundtrack without having seen the flit, but since I have no desire to see such a vapid film you’ll have to bear with me. Seeing the trailer for this

this was just another crappy piece of celluloid trying to in on the oh-so-lucrative “Gen-X” (oh brother!) market. Set in a Cash Stop convenience store, the film follows the trials and tribulations of those brave souls who put their lives on the line for those of us who enjoy twinkies at 3 a.m.. Thus, based on ‘this rock-solid foundation we have this album, chock full of bands all the boys and girls will just gobble

up(!). With the likes of shite-mongers like Seaweed, Golden Smog, Love among Freaks, Supernova, and everyone’s favourite, Soul Asylum, it’s easy to see why anyone with half a brain will avoid this monstrosity. Full of tough grungy sounds, it’s a combination of mumbled vocals, cliched guitars and useless feedback. Inspiring lyrics like “Chewbaccu, Chewie.. . Oh what a wookie...” by a defective band called Bash and Pop led me to the edge of the

Stabbing Westward, and surprisingly, Ahce in Chains. I could go on and describe to you in minute detail just how revolting this album was, but there are only so many words for shit. Do everyone you know a favour and tell them to avoid this soundtrack and the dumbass movie as well.

Something strange is brewing in Califomia, but isn’t that always the case. The Melvins, out of San Francisco, have released their 8th album, but if you have not heard of the previous seven releases you probablyhave not missed too much. T h e band originally formed in 1984 and is now getting more recognition with its latest release

Stuner Witch. This may be due to the wave of hard edged bands coming out of the area like the Offspring or the fact that this album is the Melvins most “rock’n’rol1” album to date. The sound for the most part is hard and fast with lots of guitar, but then it will completely change and slow right down with an ominous sounding drum beat and odd guitar sounds. Some of the songs will make you instantly think of bands like Metallica or Megadeth with low growling lyrics and a steady deep driven drumbeat. Track four, “Revolve,” sounds incredibly like some-

thing off Metallica’s last album and would have fit right in on that CD. Although this may be the case for one track it is certainly not consistent with the entire CD. Other songs on this CD range from sounding remotely like Nirvana, to being five minute long tracks of guitar sounds and distortion (track eight), interesting perhaps, but it will not get much play in the future. Track 9, “Shevil” is a slow and dark track (as the title may suggest) which is mostly instrumental. This track is one of the best on the CD and would have to qualify as one of my favourites. Some other highlights include a dog moaning sample (a w h i t e labrador named Mel) which begins track three, “Sweet Willy Roll bar,” and the fast instrumental track ten, “June Bug” which makes you want to thrash around your room and bounce off the walls briefly. Another song which will not get much play in the future is track eleven, another instrumental piece that could be used to fill that hole in your wall, but the Melvins decided to just make up some time with it. All in all, it is a fair CD with its high and low points. The sound is clean and the recording is good, it is just some of the material which is questionable.

by Rob Vickers Imprintstaff Those of you that know of the Victoria based NoMeansNo may know of the Wright brothers that are the founders of the band. Well, John and Rob Wright are the Right and Wrong, respectively, of this recording. To attempt to describe this release: it

is a mishmash of really old stuff (‘79 and ‘%I), unreleased stuff (from ‘92 and ‘93), and newly recorded material (new means new) that the Wright brothers have compiled in a fashion similar to the Matia release from NoMcansNo. I prefer the description of the song types in the liner notes to my own, so I’ll try to summarize them for you: hardcore, white boy blues, a slow ballad, a progressive rock song, rock, pop punk, and the ever popular “whatever.” The liner notes, a favourite medium of struggling writers everywhere, are a product in their own right (if you can struggle through them.) As far as the music goes, there aren’t any new breakthroughs here. I believe that NoMeansNo as a band are still touring Europe, (or maybe as the Hanson Brothers, or Mr. Right and Mr. Wrong; with these guys it’s hard to say for sure,) and I think that this release is more or less a lark. If you liked Mama, you’ll like this. The most interesting part about the album is that other people not in the NoMeansNo Iineup make appearances. The songs aren’t bad, but they aren’t anything that we haven’t heard before in the brothers’

Also in the lyrical poubelle is “Bridge”, a confessionary ballad about guitarist Chris DcGarmo’s relationship with his father. This one will stun diehard fans. Bridge is completely out of context musically with the rest of the album and expectations from the band in general.

And the sad part is, that line was probably the highlight of the song. Despite all the shortcomings, the album is almost saved by the last song, “Somebody Else?” Another tune that will throw fans for a loop, the only instruments are an acoustic piano and Geoff s marvetlous voice. Surprisingly, with an album full of bland, uneventful noodling, “Somebody Else?” shines as a monument to the dynamic and emotional capabilities of the band. But alas, the last song and it’s few other counterparts can’t fill the space left by the albums numerous lacklustre moments. Sadly, I almost want to make myself like the album. Much more was expected of the group after all this time. Queensrjiche have never been a band to disappoint, but after 6 albums, the inevitable happened. Hopefully they won’t take 4 years to redeem themselves.

Winnipeg foursome the Watchmen are back with In 7%e Trees (okay, it’s b6en out for a while, sue me). It is the follow up to their smash independent success McLaren Furnaceroom. Although it is nice to see the boys in the Watchmen collaborating on the songwriting this time around, the spreading out of the work tends to hurt the album in the long run. Joey Serlin, the chief songwriter has lessened his involvement in the writing process, and it shows. This sharing of the songwriting burden with his fellow bandmates makes the Watchmen into much more of a band. The downside of this move is that

the joint ventures produce some mediocre stuff. Serlin has a talent for crafting hook filled rock numbers; let’s just hope the rest of the band can find that groove in time for their next album. Bands must progress and it is now up to the others to hold up their end of the bargain. Songs like “Wiser” and “Boneyard Tree” are great tracks but as a whole In The Trees just isn’t up to snuff. In places the album lends to drag, and for a major label debut it pales in comparison to their indie effort. Well know for a highly energetic live show, it is interesting to note that songs from In The Trees sound just as good, if not better live. It is a shame that this sound was not captured on In The Trees. The Watchmen are a great band and although In The Trees is not super, it is worthy of a listen. The straight ahead rock of the Watchmen pulls no punches but this time around comes up short.

Only One. Paper To Go!
