The greening by Kenn Hyslop the chevron

Speaking to the chevron last monday, federation ‘ of students president Rick Page flatly stated he would resign his position at the next council meeting, October 12. He said his reasons are relatively simple and have been published in two open letters to the campus. Page disagrees in principle with any person having unrestricted control of student funds. He believes that Alex Smith, past editor of the chevron, mismanaged student funds in his expenditure of surplus budget for the magazine, voices. He also expressed concern at the inordinate high cost of the first paper this term.

of Rick Page

Opinions about the necessity of Page’s resignation and the principles which he is attempting to uphold vary across the campus.. Carl Sulliman, vice-president of the council, refused any comment until an official resignation is submitted and nominations for the vacant position are opened. President George Zador of the science society felt that the resignation was a good thing if a better substitute could be found. After conferring with society colleagues, Zador said Carl Sulliman would be a better substitute.

The math society’s spokesman and president, Mike Conroy, said that he agreed with the principle of control behind Page’s resignation Using these points as the basis of their action, the executive, on a and added that in his opinion the executive is the only responsplit vote, attempted to fire Smith. portion of the entire At the next full gathering of sible federation.

Bernstihl has been reported ’ to say the youths are being refused their allowances under provincial regulations which say an administrator must be satisfied that the applicant is seeking work. He added that the unkempt ap-pearance of the young men while visiting his office indicated they were not actively looking for jobs. “Grimy


Along those same lines, Bernstihl said “I know for a fact the larger Kitchener industries won’t even bother handing out application forms to grimy, long haired, bare footed youths.” Bernstihl refused to divulge his source of information on the grounds that it was “confidential.”

The balance of the industries mentioned felt that long hair was an individual’s choice and was a factor only where the position applied for was such that the person would be publicly representing the company.

For a council viewpoint the chevron talked to Bill Lindsay, environmental studies representative to the federation. Speaking only for himself, Lindsay said he thought Page was taking the easy way out and that he’d screwed things up himself. Lindsay stated he did’not agree with the way the chevron was being run, specifically the comics during the summer and the molly-mockup edition at the beginning of this term. Lindsay says he personally tried to get the chevron budget cut ten thousand dollars but he barely got a second on the motion. He said the council made a correct decision in reversing Smith’s firing and if there were more to the issue then Page should have informed the council of all facts. Lindsay suggested there should be more control of the chevron’s budget as well as a complete examination of the dispersal of money in the university. President of the university, Burton C. Matthews felt that it was unappropriate for him to comment on student affairs of this nature. He is certain the students will handle this situation with as much wisdom as they usually handle their situations.

.of welfure Pat Mansfield, personnel manager for Budd Automotive, said he has had people refuse jobs because of the collar length hair regulations in effect at his plant. Mansfield, (who said he would “kick their asses” if his daughters appeared on the street looking unkempt) said he has been pleasantly surprised at “university types” who trimmed their hair to conform with plant safety regulations. Mansfield admitted he has contacted the welfare department on occasion concerning applicants’ appearances, but has never been contacted by the welfare department. Hair regulations at Budd are enforced because 40 per cent of the employees are in welding positions. Bernstihl also mentioned bare feet in his condemnation of young people’s appearances. None of the industries polled consider sandals as detrimental to an applicants chances of obtaining a job during the interview. Most manufacturing plants have shoe regulations and after the job is obtained the employee in many cases must wear safety shoes. That is usually made clear before the job is begun. Condemned

or laz could call on us.” So far they haven’t, according. to Stevens. He also said there has been no mention of getting together to discuss this type of problem, and feels the initiative should come from the welfare department. John Anderson, metro Toronto social servies commissioner, said he couldn’t see where an overdose of drugs is much. different from alcohol poisoning, and added that he didn’t know how accounts arising from those situations could be avoided. Anderson pointed out that Toronto does have good cooperation between the welfare departments and other social service groups who are trying to improve problems such as the drug and alcohol situations. He said large populations create multiple problems and each should be dealt with individually. Charles Rushton, administrator for Connestoga college Waterloo centre and a person who has been very involved with the types of problems facing young people today, said he supported the- stand taken that welfare recipients shouldn’t have money to freak out on, but the city fathers have failed to provide an alternative for that



problem. Rushton said that in some cases everything a young man once believed in has fallen away, and “we have created the society in which these young people must live.” Rushton favors the. co-ordination of the social service groups in Kitchener and calls for training which might help an individual overcome his problems and allow him to live in this society. Booming


Replying to a comment made by alderman Stoner that things m‘ Kitchener are “booming” Rushton involved in the job situation in Kitchener due to his position with the continuing education centre said he “thought things were pretty tight.” Alderman Stoner cited a letter praising the welfare committee’s action-the only one to date-and said “We are not doing them a favor by hand out gimmicks.” She added that they were giving the “youngsters” a push to get them moving. Alderman Stoner stated that nobody would be taken off the welfare rolls because of drug use and everything possible will be done to help them, although it is too early to formulate policies yet. Morley Rosenberg, alderman and member of the welfare committee, opposes the decision to cut the, 73 from the rolls. While he feels there may be a legitimate complaint concerning drug use in some of the cases, he. said the committee is “trying to use the kids as scapegoats” and added, “they can’t discriminate against any one segment on welfare.”

and the multi-national corporation. For students to seek involvement in such issues, he added, is “To take what you’re learning in the classroom and put it into action.” Council member John McCallum maintained,“1 don’t think that, as a council, we can afford to help them. We have enough problems of our own on campus.” To suggestions that student impact might have been greater through individual letter writing, work on the picket lines, and boycott of Texpack products Chud said, :‘The reality of the stirkers’ lives is groceries next week.” 250 dollars he said will buy groceries for ten people for one week at a cost of about four cents a student. Texpack workers are striking for higher pay: an increase of 65 cents an hour over a three year period from their preient hourly wage of 1.93. Texpack, a branch plant of american hospital supply corporation, is phasing out production at the Brantford plant to make it into a warehouse for packaging hospital and first aid material made in the US.

TORONTO (CUP )-The council of the York student federation monday pledged 250 dollars to the support of strikers in the Brantford Texpack conflitit. In a 9-3 vote, the council defeated the objections that CYSF has neither the right nor the money to get into off-campus activities. calling the strike a fairly clear case of the need for student involvement in the larger community, CYSF president Mike Fletcher said, “You can’t isolate the university from real life. You have to work out what your system of priorities is. Canadians everywhere, including strikers at Texpack, have supported university students through taxes in the past twenty yeqrs, often with no direct benefits themselves. Now it’s time that we students starting repaying back debts.” Echoing this thought, student David Chud said, “If you only talk about the strike and don’t do anything about it you’re living in an ivory tower and are morally bankrupt.” He pointed to the strike as a case of what is being talked about at the university-Americanization

with students

in the great hall tuesday


by George Kaufman the chevron

Walter Pitman walked into the great hall of the campus centre tuesday afternoon and, after a quick introduction by Waterloo north NDP candidate Jo Surich, talked twenty minutes into a microphone while students sat on their .asses. Pitman, the deputy leader of the NDP and a long-standing opponent of pollution and status-quo education, apologized for interrupting the students and then went into his criticisms of the Davis government, especially in his pet area, education. “The Ontario government has beeri on a school building mania since the early 1960’s,” he said. “An so. we’ve created a inuch


Pitman reiterated his belief that schools as constituted are little better than prisons-“we’re not educating, we’re holding”with automatons marching dutifully from class to class at the insistence of clanging bells. “The NDP would like to take away the emphasis from holding people in buildings for the convenience of the job market and start to build a real educational system.” stated the two main qf the NDP in the area of : give real equality of OppOrtUnity to all Ontario; and the idea of a structured between the ages of five

‘YWe are now realizing that the industrial state is using the school system as a wierd sort of job selection service,” Pitman said. Kids no longer stay in school because they want to or feel challenged, he contended, but because they ‘are told its the only way they will get a good job later. Pitman then threw the session open to any questions or comments any students present might have. There was one comment about the need for fewer businessoriented people c&trolling schools and colleges in Ontario. Pitman -agreed, pointing out that the NDP was the only Ontario party to vote against the university of Toronto bill in ‘the legislature, because there was not enough student voice on the governing board. Appointees to governing boards of schools under an NDP government, he asserted, would be students, and community people trade unionists and workers, not just the usualy businessmen with the token trade unidnist.

He also denounced the presenl Ontario policy of “formula financing” of colleges, which he charged puts the emphasis on numbers <of students and on graduates rather than undergraduates. _ friday



There were no more questions from the dead audience so Pitman gracefully retired and said if any students wished to speak to him in a smaller group, he would stick around. Evidently he had gotten to a few in the audience, and about twenty students surrounded him at the side of the great hall and deluged Pitman with questions and comments for the next half-hour. Most queries centered around how the NDP would really be tougher on polluters if it became the government. Pir;man, who has been quit@ active both in provincial pollution situations and in fighting polluters in his home riding of Peterborough, assured the students that “get tough with polluters” is more than a political slogan to the NDP members. “We don’t even need new laws,” he told a student. We just need to enforce the ones already. on the books. The conservative government has not enforced the laws against businesses, and so Davis has not approached this issue in the campaign.” He called the Dow chemical law suit presently underway by the Ontario government “nothing but windrow dressing, a cause celebre” on the part of the government. They have bekn openly allowed to pollute for many years-the government inspectors for a long time could not even get into the fortress-like Dow plant without phoning and arranging an appointment--and the suit tit this late date is only for shoui. he argued. Pltman commented before -he left that the Waterloo campus appeared to him to be particularly unconcerned about the upcoming provincial election. “Other campuses--4ike Trent, where I teach-are really . involved. I don’t know what has happened here.”

Quebec provincial police had warned previously that any attempted blockage would not be allowed, and Loyola co-ordinators Dennis Mooney and Gordon Clark advised students to leave two lanes open for two-way traffic.

There were no incidents, and no one was injured. Police kept demonstrators wellbottled up on the divider, allowing only a few students through to pass leaflets to cars moving through the border.

The members of the Sir George Marxist-Lenninist group then attempted to mobilize people for a “die-in” at the american consulate, but there was little response.

Trouble seemed imminent a second time when Rheas Bctournay, a free-lance Montreal journalist was yanked by his shoulders by police when he attempted to interview the driver of ii car. Aside from a little booing and the odd hysterical shout, students remained calm.

‘One “GOQD” Term Deserves inher .





the- chevron







Anti-ban& (‘ALGARY (CUP> Senior representatives of the executive branch of the american governn@nt made assurances this week that the threatened Amchitka atomic teat will certainly’ be delayed and probably cancelled. Meanwhile, about 3500 Vancouver-area university students and about 1200 university of Calgary students protested against the threatened blast over the weekend, either by marches or petitions. Earlier that week the american senate and congress had placed total responsibility for the decision of holding of cancelling the test on the shoulders of president Richard Nixon. The U.S. atomic energy commission, an agency of the american government, concieved of fhe Amchitka test as an adjunct to the american anti-ballistic missile program, a program already approved by the U.S. congress. But arguments “against the blast seem to outweigh those defensive ones in favor of it. These arguments include : 0 potential radiation leaks since the blast could be in an unstable geological area, ie along the San Andreas fault 8 political and technological developments which make the test unneccessary, and a tidal wave and other potentially-disaiterous ramificatiqns of the blast.




According to sources the executive branch of the U.S. government now feels that a potentially-disasterous nuclear war is neither necessary nor inevitable. Defence against waroriented thinking and action can be achieved without exposing the planet to the inherent problems of the Amchitka blast. The problem with the U.S. decision-making echelons has apparently been that AEC technocrats figured out how to do something and are now fighting to justify the decision and ,the expenditure of 160 million dollars. However, since the congress had already appraved the ABM program, the problem was not totally their creation. But the proposed 5 megaton blast has also brought to light other factors that the AEC did not take into consideration. Every seven years the danger of earth tremors along the San Andrea fault is at its most extreme because of the wobble of the earth’s axis. This happens to be the seventh and most dangerous year. The experience of atomic testing in Nevada shows the AEC to be notoriqusly inaccurate in predicting the results of nuclear tests. Large areas of the state of Utah for example, were exposed to extreme radiation levels because of the Nevada tests. The decision to cancel Amchitka was really made over a month ago




CUP sources report, and Nixon has received many representations on the matter, including a respectful suggestion that it might not be wise to insist upon California’s premature and physical secession from the american union. _ Apart from the lack of adequate examination of the problem by the

...iis300 CALGARY CUP-Personnel are being phased out of the Amchitka island blast site, with over 300 of the once 700 at-site already having left. Any imminent blast would involve a full complement of staff at the site making preparations until just before blast time. The Washington Post has talked to some american government officials who conceded the blast would be delayed. They gave as an excuse the fact that they don’t want the blast to coincide with the visit of soviet premier Alexei Kosygin’s visit to Canada. Sources indicate a reassessment of the need for the blast; possible radiation leak, tidal wave and geological effects were prime reasons for the decision to delay and the strong inclination to totally negate the blast. However, political considerations, including strong protests from Canada and Japan, undoubtedly bore some weight. In addition the US government has had facts brought to light by the scientific community outside its agencies. There have also been strong protests from conservationists and students.

The american executive branch appears to be caught between an inadequate asses,sment by one of its own agencies (which is naturally unwilling to admit error) massive controversey over the issue, and significant international political considerations. The issue is sensitive because of the SALT (strategic arms limitation talks). Nixon has had recent meetings in Washington with soviet foreign minister Andrci Gromyko on arms limitation. The US anti-ballistic missle program was& the reason for the A’mchitka test in the first place. Nixon is expect,ed to present a message to the US Congress

referring. to the matter in the near future-a message which will include US policy considerations including the American environmental and arms limitations stances. A second Calgary protest against the Amchitka blast will be held Saturday at the US consulate. Planners for the group include the United Church of Canada, National KAIROS, the Voice of Women, the Committee to Aid War Immigrants, the Calgary InterFaith Council and Eco-centre. Planning has been in concert with< the Canadian coalition against Amchitka. Similar demonstrations will be held in Vancouver and elsewhere.

Voting . .\

-problemsq ahswered

For most students of Ontario’s colleges . and tiniv’e~~iti& the’ titiotiing provincial election will be their first apgortunity to vote. In july , i9n the Ontario government enacted legislation which lowered the voting age to 18, and enabled many students who are 18, but who are away from their homes attending an educational inStitution, to votewithout having to travel home as they had to do in previous elections. One member of the provincial parliament will be elected from each of the province’s 117 electoral districts. A returning officer has been appointed to be responsible for conducting the election in each electoral district. Because an electoral district has many thousands of voters, it is divided up into numerous polling subdivisions, each under a deputy returning officer.

Who votes You are qualified to vote in the election if, at the lime of voting, i you are at least eighteen years old; o you are a Canadian citizen or other British subject; o you are not disqualified or prohibited by law from voting ; e you have resided in Ontario for 12 months ’ preceeding the day of voting; and Q you are a resident of the electoral district where you intend to vote. .



Revision If your name has not been included on the list of voters or has been listed incorrectly, you may appear before the returning officer and apply -to have your name included or listed correctly.

How to vote The polls will be open from 9 : 90 am until 8 : 00 pm. You may vote only at the poll in subdivision in which your name appears on the polling list. Even if your name appears on’more than one polling list, there is only one place where you are eligible to vote. It is a serious offence to vote more than once. After your name has been checked by the poll clerk, the deputy returning officer will hand you a ballot which he has initialled. In a compartment provided in the polling place, you should mark the ballot with a cross, using a pen or pencil. The mark must appear in the white circle beside the name of the candidate of your choice. You should fold the ballot so that the initials on the back can be seen and then hand it to the deputy returning officer. Without unfolding the ballot, the deputy returning officer ascertains by examining his initials that it is the same ballot that he gave you and then, while you watch, he places the ballot in the ballot box. Remember your candidate’s name and party affiliation! No indication of political party affiliation is allowed on the ballot. \










Brian Turnbull isn’t an old-style politician

Where,to vote Generally speaking, every qualified, person votes in the place where he has his permanent residence. Special exceptions have been made this year to enable students to vote while away from home attending educational institutions. The following situations illustrate where you are entitled to vote if,you are a student: @If vou are living at your family home on election day, you will vote where the home is located. If you are away from your family home temporarily (such as while attending an educational institution) but you will be in the electoral district where your family home is located on the Saturday or monday preceeding the day of the election, then you may vote on either day at the advance poll for that electoral district. e If you are absent from your family home because you are attending an educational institution, then you are entitled to vote by proxy. l If you are a married student, then you will vote where you live with your spouse. o If you are a single student without any parental home, you will vote wherever you live at the time of the election. 0 If you are a single student living away from your parental home, if you no longer regard that home as your permanent home, and if you consider yourself .a “visitor” in your parental home, then you are entitled to vote where you reside at the time of the election.

The advance poll Anyone who expects to be unable to vote on the regular voting day in the polling subdivision where his name appears on the polling list is entitled to vote at the advance poll -for his electoral district. The advance poll will be held on the Saturday and monday immediately preceeding polling day, between the hours of 12 :00 am and 9 :00 pm. Your name must be on the voters list for a polling subdivision in the electoral district if you wish to vote in the advance poll. ’

Voting by proxy If you are a student voter, you are given a privilege restricted to certain special classes of voters, the privilege of voting by proxy if you cannot conveniently vote in your own electoral district either at the advance poll or on a polling day. The eligibility to vote by proxy is extended to students at the secondary level, as well as post secondary level. A student or any other person who is entitled to vote at an election”by proxy must appoint the proxy in writing . Although not essential, it is advisable to use the official Appointment by Proxy form to avoid any complications in having the appointment accepted.

The voting proxy appointed may be a non-relative or’ a son, daughter, grandchild, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, husband or wife of the voter, as long as the proxy is a qualilied voter in the same electoral district where the student is entitled to Ordinarily you will be allowed to vote only if your in the same polling name is entered on the polling list in the polling. - vote, although not necessarily subdivision.

Think of a politician and you immediately speeches, tax-money, promises. But Brian isn’t an old-style politician.

think of Turnbull

He’s young-34 years old-and he’s more interested in doing things for the people he represents than talking about it. When you’re ber 21 election,

thinking about the issues in the Octothink about these things:

Regional government: Brian Turnbull made it clear to provincial government cabinet ministers that this area should get a guarantee of costs before we get regional government. Rural education taxes: Brian Tumbull told education minister Bob Welch that there should be bigger provincial grants to help rural people feeling the pinch of increased taxes from the new country-wide school board. Either that, or encourage school boards to spread the increase over three ‘years. The province has since passed legislation making this load-spreading possible. Universities: Brian Tumbull told the Commission on Post-Secondary Education that universities should pay their fair share of municipal taxes. The provincial government has since passed legislation that has reduced home owner taxes in ,Waterloo. And they’ll be lower still in future. Future water supply: Brian Tumbull conducted a study into the area’s future water supply and told Energy and Resources Minister George Kerr that he is strongly opposed to a pipeline from Lake Erie to the Twin Cities. If a pipeline is necessary, it should come from Lake-Huron. New Himburg water: Brian Tumbull stepped in, to help when New Hamburg ran into a water shortage this summer. The real issue in this election is whether an MPP in Waterloo North who does things.

Grand to be

by Dr. Larry Martin Yesterday, the Grand river sonservation authority and the 3ntario water resources commission agreed to proceed with the controversial Black Walnut dam to be located just south of the city of Kitchener near Doon on the Grand river. To be completed in 1975, it is estimated the dam WIII cost Ontario taxpayers more than 1.5 billion dollars. This massive earth and concrete structure stretching more than 2 miles across the Grand river valley will rise 350 feet and will impound 2,000 cubic miles of water creating a vast lake extending 25 miles north to Belwood lake. site of an existing conservation authority dam. Although various citizen and disorderly university groups had opposed the dam, bulldozers have already begun to level the village bf Doon In order to provide proper anchorage for the facility. It is expected that valuable fill will be obtained. from the roadbed of the soon-to-be-relocated Highway 8 and Kitchener’s Fairview mall, thus lowering construction costs and resulting in substantial savings to taxpayers. Concieved primarily as a power-producing hydroelectric project, the dam is also expected to go far toward solving the water shortage that municipal officials in the Kitchener-Waterloo area have solemnly predicted for some time, and has been hailed by spokesmen for Ontario Hydro as “the most forward step toward solution of the water crisis since the recent ban on the Saturday night bath.” Power to be generated by the dam’s huge complex of turbines will be used to meet the demand created by the continuing urbanization of those parts of Kitchener and Waterloo that remain above

As a substitute to tenure, consideration would be given to longterm hiring contracts (five or more years). This would theoretically allow faulty members to have academic freedom while encouraging them. to remain active since they would now be a&ouritable for their inaction.

union president Dave Hunt presented a report and a speech that outlined the need for more student involvemer& in faculty Faculty repreappointments. sentatives instead tried to argue that only tenure could allow “Frue academic freedom .” Concern was expressed by many that the lack of tenured ap,pointments might‘ cause many academics to shy away from the university. . Yet it appears tenured appointments might be abolished because of wide-spread concern that tenure- does nothing but prevent poor professors from being fired.,

Though tenure’ will not be eliminated in the near future it appears many members’ of the administration have secretly nurtured a hope tenure will die. At the senate meeting, university president A. W. R. Carrothers expressed the sentiment that tenure as it stands is unrealistic and that little can be done with the rules and regulations of the university that protect tenured faculty.

The audience seemed relieved when Syrinx finally, mercifully,

There were some very fine moments in her performance although she failed to sustain the power and conviction which came across in flashes. She sang a chant to a Haitian love goddess in which ’ she rolled the sounds around in her throat almost as if she were sensually ‘feeling their texture. She would repeat one sound, ‘meh’, for about five minutes practically caressing it, singing it deep in her throat, then shoot her voice out into the mike in a quick staccato. The effect was hypnotizing. Her guitar playing was passable, open ended tuning, Richie Havens style.

but now comes the best part, a really exciting piece of theatre which practically made up for the whole evening. The clownish emcee with the painted face who did the intros invited someone from the audience up to the stage to discuss the election while Syrinx was setting up. So up comes a grinning old man who takes the mike, snaps his fingers for the spotlight and proceeds to tell jokes in a heavy Newfoundland accent. When Syrinx began to play and the emcee wandered off the stage the old man began- to dance. He was smiling, perfectly relaxed, his body swaying gracefully in time, a kind of a soft shoe to a moog. When the spot dimmed on him he kept on dancing. He seemed to be really enjoying moving his body to the music. It was an unexpected, spontaneous example of theatre at the staid old St. Lawrence Center.

Women fear this power, yet seek it, and it is all they really want. Women are ball busters, and men are the stronger. The way this is presented really brings out the obvious emptiness of his philosophy. He needs a prostitute and other sources to even get excited. The film ends with a skater all in white, doing circles on glaring white ice. It is contrasted to carnal knowledge, is pure, eternal, and beyond Jonathan’s understanding, and is the best film ending I have ever seen. It was a message of love.

Concern over legislationwhich will discriminate against Wilmot township citizens living in co-operatives was expressed monday to Wilmot township council. Wilmot includes the towns of New Hamburg and Baden. The meeting held in Baden town hall was to review a brief the council intends to submit to the Ontario municipal board redefining zoning bylaws and in particlJlar changing the legal meaning of “family”. Robert Dahmer, representing the township council as planning consultant, was asked by chairman Shrives of the municipal board to explain reasons why the definition of “family” living in a house was in need of change. . Dahmer stated that the decision had been motivated by previous action in Waterloo township which borders Wiimot and contains Kitchener and Waterloo. He said the populations of these cities had overflowed into Wilmot township, a condition over which the township council wanted some planning control. The council’s recommended growth areas included the county’s hamlets - and villages in order to reduce possible sprawl and unintended rural development. This, Dahmer, stated was why the changes were proposed. The existing law states that a house may be occupied by “one or more persons in a single non-profit unit.” The propsed change in the zoning by-law is to restrict the identity of a family living in a house to those related by blood, marriage or adoption in addition to a limit of three persons who might “live in.” The last point was made largely to include those persons assisting in farm-work since the legislation deals mainly with rural areas. Such a by-law change would make illegal the formation of any family structure not conforming to the “relation by blood” cpncept. In particular, experiments in cooperative and communal living would be legislated out of the township, the reason, i ccording to observers at monday’s meeting, that the council wa-nts t le zoning by-law and definition changes.

University of- Waterloo psychology iecturer, James Davison, spoke unofficially on behalf of many persons living in the township who, if the changes were passed, would be breaking the law.

Council responded that not passing the law was “just asking for and that in rural areas problems,” communes could possibly overburden transportation, policing, fire and health facilities by creating a higher density of peopie. , Davison conceded that for practical purposes zoning by-laws should exist to cover property, but that only the conditions legislated people.

Peter Lang of Kitchener expressed his concern about the precedent set if the changes were passed and also questioned the discrepancy in council’s apparent opinion that the number of people in a communal family might overtax municipal facilities while the large numbers in many “blood-related” families would not do so. White replied he felt it is impossible to restrict the latter.

Because of the chairman’s ruling that Lang could not directly question White or Dahmer about their reasons for supporting the council’s bill, White did not answer the discrimination charges. Instead he restated the previous law was not adequate in controlling density and for this reason, the council had arbitrarily chosen to limit the number of people beyond the related family to three. “We could have chosen five or two or ten as the number,” White replied, “but

Toward the end of the meeting when Karl tried to leave, several locals blocked his way at the door and demanded the film. crying angrily to one another, “I was on that film” and “I know, he got me -in one. too.” Karl finally convinced them they could do nothing about him taking the pictures ’ after the fact-only if he published them.

Kitchener Riding Ian D,ennison .-

First off, I represent no party or party faction; which means I am free to speak my mind, not the mind of Bill Davis, or whatever. The question of student summer emplojment in this riding is not serious, especially for university and community college students. I obtained two jobs last summer through the student summer job centre. However, for a person graduating, the problem of finding meaningful employment is serious. Jobs are getting fewer and fewer. JThis is a fact of automation. Any candidate can make a short-term promise, but the fact is, this is 1971, and the jobs no longer exist.

\ \

expected to hold a job in the future. “Work” has lost its meaning. I can merely advocate an employment project related to cleaning up the environment befdre we destroy it. My student loan last year amounted to over $500 when I lived at home. This year I have been ldaned $235, and am living on my own. Last year the government blew it, so this year they are penalizing us. Some redefinition of standards is obviously necessary. A student living 00 his own should be expected to save that portion of his earnings which does not go toward living expenses. A person living at home and employed for the summer has little excuse for needing much in the way of a loan. Basing the whole deal on parental income is a fallacy. I know of many students with well off parents, whose parents cut them off without a penny. Shouldn’t

those parents _be coerced into paying through their taxes? In other words, base the thing on justified need. Curb rising costs by an immediate halt to building construction in all public and high school are?s. The baby boom is over. Primary grade classrooms are halfempty. Stop wasting bread. Give the kids something more meaningful than a squar’e box classroom inside the prison gates. Take them outside. 2 Make them more accountable? The question, to me is irrelevant as proposed. Rather, provide support not only for Catholic schools after grade ten, but for all manner .of private and public schools. The public school system is blind to a child’s needs. He should be allowed to *get the education he needs and deserves without paying an exorbitant sum for it. Send him to Everdale at the government’s expense.

1, however, will push to phase out loans altogether, simultaneously increasing grants until we are eventually paying students to attend school. This will be financed through revenue recovered through a decrease in the wastage which characterizes education spending in this province, and through a special education tax for corporations. After all, it is the corporations who reap the greatest benefits from our universities, since in many cases the universities represent little more than publicly-sponsored training schools for one or another corporation. It seems reasonable, therefore, to expect that these corporations begin to help pay the bill for this service. Under this salary system, many working-class kids who want to attend college will no longer be prevented from doing so by a lack of funds, or from the fear of incurring large debts if they do not obtain their degree. The first thing that should be emphasized is that the 50 percent figure is misleading. Almost everyone I’ve talked to during my campaign is comp’laining about paying higher taxes, and rightly so. Unfortunately, most of the- politicians from the opposition parties have been focusing public attention on the education bill. The provincial government uses the taxpayers money to provide services. Most of these services go towards helping big business. Millions of dollars have been given away to corporations, many of them huge american branch plants. On the other hand only pittances are’budgeted to serve

the needy while many useful services, such as more and better public housing, are curtailed. As your representative from Waterloo north, I would fight for a thorough revision of the taxation system of this province. It is about time that rich people and corporations stop leeching and start paying their way. However, there are changes that must occur in our educational system right now. We can cut wastage by stopping useless expenditures such as the $IOO,OOO spent on the University avenue overpass. A good deal of money could be saved by curtailing the huge bureaucracy that runs our schools. Most importantly, we must begin to analyze and constantly re-evaluate the spending priorities in our schools. At the university of Waterloo it costs as much to put one book in the library as it does for PP&P to lay down one sod of grass. Right now our school system is geared towards serving mainly the interests of the wealthy. One look at the list of fat cats who make up the boards of governors of our universities proves this point. It it time for a change. At our s~lp01s there should be offered a list of free courses on useful topics such as welfare and tenant organizing ; how people can get together to stop the miiuse of our ecology; etc. Facilities such as- gym; nasiums, pools and video labs should have time-slots for community use.

North It is obvious from the answers of Messrs. Good, Surich, and Turnbull that they do not represent the true desires and opinions of the people of this constitutency. My opponents have all promised to try to create more jobs. Something all politicians say. What this really means is that they will try to put more people into more of the same shitty, backgrinding jobs that most people do today. My platform is based on the call for more unemployment. People do not want to go to mindless, physically dest,ructive jobs anymore. Unemployment should be one of the blessings of the technological age. Man should no longer have to work by the sweat of his brow. People don’t want to spend hour -after hour at a mundane job that they have mastered years ago. It’s common knowledge that the “gears of could easily run at present level on a four production” hour work day. People fear the “social stigtia” and insecurity of not being stkadily employed. WC must realize that the way our economy is running right now, more people are being forced to compete for fewer jobs. The emphasis must be shifted towards sharing -of’ jobs and maintaining the standard of living by redistributing the wealth from large American-controlled industries to the people. No matter which of the three parties comes to power in Ontario, I do not foresee any significant change in these areas.

On a chilly Sept. 15 morning, a bald, bouncing post-war baby was born to Henry and Agnes Koop at the Vineland nursing home. Little did Agnes realize that the slimy little bundle she fondled in those first tender post-natal moments would one day become the independent standard-bearer for the people of Waterloo north. John Koop’s early childhood was simple yet happy. He spent most of his time frolicking in the forests and streams behind his parents’ home in the tiny but picturesque hamlet of Virgil, or helping one of his many uncles bring in their harveSt of sumptuous Niagara fruit. John’s blissful teenage years were spent in splendid isolation at Eden Christian college, a small Mennonite high school near Niagara-on-the-Lake. Even though John was active in academic, athletic and religious

pursuits, he found time to help out in his father’s drugstore. And yet, all the security of home lifedid not sit easily uponhim, and

intel lectual peek- a-boo sex


Mike Estok’s smoldering peek-aboo-glance approach to sexuality is illustrative of most sex-alienated intellectuals. Not only is it blind to the point of complete objectification of women, but the sexual fantacies it attempts to induce are sadly masterbative. For someone who presumes to teach “creative writing”,, his poetry exhibits all the vitality of a wet sock. Why someone would write such purile stuff, let alone publish it, is beyond me. Consider for a moment a poem which treats sexuality with some insight as well as talent: lo an African

What Eldridge Cleaver expressed in Soul on Ice about the emptiness of white music and dance might also apply to the poetry of this white intellectual. Cleaver speaks of a new music from out of black America which ‘(was born of a revolt against the sham of Western culture; it was direct and gutsy and spoke to thesenses. As such it was brofoundly subversive. It still is. A music that provoked them into freeing their bodies, activating a dance that defied the staid mechanical movements of a white man’s culture fleeing from his own sensuality. A dance in which the young “couldn’t care less about the old, stiffassed honkies who didn’t like their new dances...AIl they knew is that it feels good to swing to wayout body rhythms instead of dragassing across the dance floor like Zombies to the dead beat of mind-smothered Mickey Mouse music.” But rather than rail against one teacher’s shallow excuse for poetry I’d like to suggest that there is much more vital poetry among us here at Waterloo. How about making the chevron a medium for some real poetry from the people.

Scott tiray,

he hottest squib on Firecrackerweekend was a loud report that Deborah Van Kiekebelt of Clarkson scored 4,965 in some esoteric nonsense called the pentathlon. The pentathlon, female version, involves a long jump, a high jump, a ZOOmetre dash, a shot put and running 100 metres over hurdles. Seems like a lot of heavy effort to achieve an uncommon lot of sticky perspiration, and what can you say about a shot putter anyway, except to tell him where to put his shot? Anybody daft enough to make a career of throwing a lump of lead further than his neighbor bespeaks a remarkable ‘paucity of imagination. Miss Van Kiekebelt, 17, inspired the local short-pants set to turning jubilant handsprings by setting a hemispherical record in the five-event test. The official world mark, 5,856 points, is held by a European damsel-maybe by a Russian doll accustomed to pulling heavy plows. Miss Van Kiekebelt’s nerformance has Canadian track authorities, a breathless group, talking about a gold medal in the women’s pentathlon during the PanAmerican Games in Colombia this summer. This department \wishes the authorities would knock it off. I am against anything more strenuous than motherhood for the ladies. The most impressive voice in track and field, I am pleased to report, endorses that view. Avery Brundage has said: “It is splendid for girls to swim,’ ski, ice skate, do gymnastics, and fencing, perhaps.” When asked about the dash, the dart, the put and the javelin, the Big Daddy of amateur athletics shook his sage old pate and repeated a favorite ‘Greek maxim, “Nothing in excess.” How


Lib began

Mr. Brundage holds, as your agent does, that the shot put “is not an avocation for women.” It is a trifle late however, for legislating such strenuous exercise off the female track program. Women’s Liberation actually began in the old Grecian days, when the maidens were forbidden from watching Olympic strife. One mother, Pherenice, disguised herself as a trainer and sneaked into the Hippodrome to watch her son compete. He was Peisidorous Chuvalo, a prizefighter. She went to the Games in drag (men’s n!othes) and when Peisidorous won, she embraced him. The Slavery Brundages of the day heard about this outrageous breach of the rules.


Pherenice‘ was put on trial, where she wept and pleaded motherhood as a defence. She was freed, but the judges ruled that all future trainers would have to appear naked at the Games. Muscles

not for maids

Statistics reveal that Russian wenches put the shot and throw the discus and hurl the javelin easy as falling down steppes. But they are a different kind of women, as Mr. Brundage says. “They carry bricks, labor in fields, clean the streets and do hard manual work in their daily life.” One look at the muscular maids in Moscow is indeed unnerving. They look like they’d look very good on a tractor, so massive they make a lot of, uh, broad shade. Do Canadian males want that for Debbie Van Kiekebelt and her comely compatriots? It is true, isn’t it, that competitive sports do not allow a lass to retain her softness? Equestriennes do a jockey’s job at horse shows, but if they don’t quit young they begin to resemble the animals they ride. Skiing? There is a theory that skiing will make a woman look younger, and this is correct. It makes a woman of 40 look like a man of 30. Swimming? Hoydens in this pastime can be hubba-hubba and like that, but even a lobster looks good in the water tanks at a marine museum. Ah, there,



n attempting to speak to the Dick Beddoes of the world, two premises must be assumed: firstly, with the man himself we are not primarily concerned, but the rationale, which unfortunately goes far beyond the existence of Dick Beddoes; and secondly, what is being discussed is not sports, but that age-old, wearying, but obviously unconcluded problem of man and woman, woman and man. Breaking into a categorical consciousness such as illustrated by benevolent Beddoes, needless to say, presents problems. One wonders if perhaps it should all be ignored. How does one begin to grapple with such facile assumptions as implying a good female shot-putter to be, obviously, Russian? Due to Dick’s consistent refusal to equip us with explanations, rhymes or reasons in his off-the-cuff, flippantly witty treatise: on women, we must assume that the Dick, premise no. 1 is that women exist to please men. A woman today could not conceive of a less profitable intrigue than the shot put, if what she is concerned with is desirability. And here, Dick, is where we agree 100 percent: most women presently exist to be desired, and we are sorry, but from this point on you are all wet. Yes indeed Dick, the truth of what surrounds you does not escape you, and for that you are to be commended. The point

tne cnevron

is that that set of relations is normal (i.e. par ,for the course> but not natural, true but sick. And to imply, as you did, that any man lost in the world of throbbing hearts and dripping glances is nothing less than a “monumental bore” who should have more self-importance, and in the same breath suggest that it is within the parameters of this world that a woman define her existence, is simply indicative of your meriting the same descriptionsick, and in incredibly poor taste, a term with which we are sure you are well acquainted. That the potential for bodily feats, let alone intelligence or stability or anything else be determined on the grounds of genitals exemplifies a peculiar form of logic which leaves us mystified. Given the commonality of this practice, one would suppose that both men and women in their separate fields and worlds, be they business, sports, family etc. often experience an aloneness that could only be created through the precluding of half the human race. And it is the likes of you, Dick, and other graduates of the Avery Brundage school of the logic of sports that stop up the progress of sports, rendering any endeavour in that arena a little less worthwhile, and leaving our problem unconcluded.

So I’m old-fashioned, but girls do not stir my hormones if they can fling a shot. I am disgusted by lady rasslers, who are as loving as a black-widow spider. You ever sit around with a lushed-up lover gone goofy over a skirt? Such guys are monumental bores, but they tip off the sort of women that men respond to. Some goofs grieve when they lose a woman because they love to eat and nobody whipped up the goulash better than her. Some weep over sexy singers who cut . them off at the heart. But there’s never been a solitary sap leap off the Burlington Skyway because he couldn’t live without the catcher on the girls softball team. On the farm the hired men were always .- getting busted up over the hired girls. But the hired hands followed a sensible policy, at least in Sheep Tracks, Alta. The policy stressed that a guy was foolish if he fell in love with a girl he couldn’t knock down with the first punch. By Dick Beddoes, The Globe and Mail

After the organization meeting last night the Warriors swim team looks stronger than ever for the up-coming season. Nearly all of last year’s squad has returned and a number of new students were out. Even so, new blood is always needed. This is especially true on the girls squad which last year didn’t field a full team, but were still third in the nation. If a full Athena swim team is put into competition there is a good chance they will move closer to being number. one. Co-captains George Roy and Brian “Zack” Bachert along with Rolfe McEwan, Bruce- Murray, Doug Lorriman and Paul Sharpe are all back. On the Athena’s team butterflyer Judy Abbotts, backstroker Laura Foley and I.M’er Chris Lutton are some of the returning girls. Anyone wee has competed in aqtiatics, in&ding diving, or who

wants to give the sports a whirl, practices are held daily at 4: 30.

The warrior’s water polo team takes to the pool for the first time next Wednesday at 7 p.m. Ttie university of Guelph’s squad, always a threat; will be their first opponents. Last year guelph seemed to have continuous trouble keeping the warriors in check and it is sincerely hoped their misfortunes will continue this season and in the future. Even so, guelph’s coach Bob Stallman is in the habit of putting a fe$v new suprise horses in the ,/‘ ‘~~~~” water each year. Coach Norm McKee and the , entire uniwat squad are confident they can handle anything from down the road and may have a few -Gord Moore, the chevron suprises of their own. For anyone new on campus this k~ach Norm McKee will lead the year, or who hasn’t witnessed the \%ater polo warriors again this game of water polo, the roughest of year to the championships!

Field Hockey


In a well played, hard fought battle the Waterloo athenas last to the Macmaster field hockey team by a score of 3-2. The score had been tied until there was less than thirty seconds remaining in the game. It was then that macmaster slipped the ball past the Waterloo goalie. Scorers for Waterloo were Marilyn Woods and Ruth Vasiliadis. A fair number of spectators were on hand to cheer the girls on. The next game will be played next Wednesday October 13 at four oclock at Colombia field. The athenas will host the team from the university of Guelph. Practices start next week for the men’s varsity basketball and hockey teams.

’ The warrior track and fielders took yet another team victory in the series of OUAA warm up meets. The site of this second victory was seagram stadium. Using their home grounds to advantage, the waterloo squad piled up 122 points only two short of the second, third and fourth place teams combined. As is usually the case in at home meets, the warriors fielded an almost complete squad to take the home competition. Second year arts student Al Monks had the best day of the competitors taking the 460 meters for the second week. Monks then stepped down to the 200 meter sprint event and surprised most onlookers by -grabbing third place. Hugh Fraser of queens, the reigning junior national champion in both the loo and 200 meter events, met warrior sprinter Mike Murray in the shorter race. Leaving the blocks in a powerful start, Murray battled the high headwind to easily outdistance Fraser and claimed victory with a 11.0 second clocking. ., Neither sprinter, however, accepted the race’s outcome&as indicative of how the OUAA race will end. Murray, however, did say that he considers himself third in the national ranking and the other two athletes ‘were not running today’. George Neeland made it three straight in as many meets when he ambled to a 15.1 second sprint hurdle win. Neeland was ahead after the first hurdle but didn’t seem interested in stretching out the lead, “I knew I was out front and couldn’t psych myself enough to drive very hard against that wind” he explained. The other warrior hurdler, Mike Strenge took third place honors. Hairy Nigel Strothard went with the gun in the 806 meter in an attempt to lead a fast race. Vince Evers of queen’s proved to be the strongest contender and hung onto Nigel’s heels throughout the race. “I had to get out there and lead a hot pace, because Evers is fast on the final straight”, the Waterloo runner commented. In keeping with his race plan, Nigel went through the first quarter mile in 58 seconds and began to stretch his lead out to ten yards on the back straight. .






ome meet

Evers, living up to his reputation, began a kick on the final bend and drove past Strothard as they approached the final yards. Les Hatton of mat showed signs of a late sprint, but Nigel’s earlier strength carried him through the line comfortably in second. The event was won in 1 minute 56.8 seconds, a full two seconds slower than Strothard’s winning time in the mat invitational two weeks previous. Waterloo’s weakest points fall in the distance events, but Jon Arnett, a cross country competitor, came home in the 1506 meters a scant second out of second place for the warriors only points in that event. Python Northey squared off against Kipchoge Sumner, now of queens, and Dan Anderson of the warriors. Northey is ineligible to compete for the school because he forgot to write a sub last summer. As the race progressed, Northey extended his lead and lapped most of the field. Meanwhile, Kipchoge fell farther and farther back then disappeared into the dressing room. He, promised, however, to be back for the championships. Dan Anderson, finishing almost a full minute behind Python was the first eligible runner to cross the line. In the field events, Bill Lindley took both the triple and the long jumps with distances of 47%‘~” and 21’8” respectively. Andy McGann took second in the triple, while Andy Schwieger grabbed third place honours in the long. Bruce Clarke, in his first meet, high jumped 5’10” to take the high jump. Terry Wilson chucked the spear over 200 feet for the first time this season and won the event with a toss five feet beyond thatmagic figure. While the guy-warriors were annihalating their opposition, the girl-athenas lost by one point to Laurentian 45-44. Pan-am competitor Joan Eddy led the team with a 60.8 second 400 meter win and sparked two relay vie tories. Marlene Peters *took the 100 meter hurdles in a 16.2.second into the wind clocking. She also placed second in the 106 meter dash sprinting 13.4 seconds in that race. Athena Karla Peters took the 208 meter sprint with a time of 26.7 seconds.

really in wonderland


In a recent edition of the chevron, tuesday, Sept. 21, you permitted the printing of an article criticizing the proposals of the NDP in regard to alternatives “within capitalism”, so-called. Your competent writer should first of all get his definitions straight. Capitalism involves ownership, control and direction by privately owned business organizations. Come now, state capitalism (euphemistically called socialism ) ? r And what is really monopolycorporate state-capitalism? Most students at this university are aware of the environmental problems facing the world today. They also know that many of those predicaments, ie. the eutrophication of Lake Erie waters, the toxic air inversions in the Los Angeles area, are a direct result of private enterprise. Answers always come less easily, and what the NDP suggests makes more sense than useless nonsense such as “capitalism is pollution”. Industries have little to gain by abating pollution. Trudeau knows it and so does David Lewis. And Lewis’ alternative is government control of industries, certainly not “state capitalism” within private enterprise. How much longer must we put up with this revolutionary dreamworld bull-shit approach to solving the problems of our environment? Is it Lewis in wonderland - or Lenihan we’re speaking of?

Students of phys


locked out ed lockers

The phys ed depart’ment’s bungling inefficiency and their total lack of concern for the studen’ts here at this university breed nothing but disgust and contempt for the jock population on this campus. ’ Two and a half weeks have passed since registration began and students still can’t get lockers in the phys ed building. Furthermore dozens of people ask the tote room attendent daily when lockers will be released. The same answer is returned every single day, “I don’t know.‘! Finally upon approaching facilities manager D. Brown, I found that lockers have not been released yet since a few phys ed students are still registering and must receive lockers first. OnIy then can all other students ,/be.. assigned lockers: . ~ Why they ,;c’anno&: set aside a locker for each student tire- ,. registered in phys ed ph.& a

shower heads), sauna (whenever it opens again) or play squash (in courts left for repair until september ). However, the latest word is that there will be an announcement in the next gazette (published Wednesday) that lockers were released on monday, Sept. 27. Nice going, guys. And as yet the tote room attendents have not yet been informed of this secret. But we can rest assured that these annoying inefficiencies will be straightened out by february when again the phys ed department will give out tickets for the Blues-Warriors home hockey game. We can certainly count on being jammed in a narrow stuffy corridor by the hundreds against all fire regulations waiting for hours for just one stupid line of ticket exchange. Not seven or eight lines like modern banks and grocery stores but one measly line for all those hundreds of students. And with all the secretaries we have on this campus who will be sitting there punching tickets at the head of this ridiculous line but Bob McKillop, head coach of the Warriors hockey team! Good luck!

Chevron chided over Amchitka Over 4000 people in British Columbia saw fit to demonstrate against the proposed nuclear test on Amchitka by the US! And yet the chevron relegated the topic to the 6th page of its last edition, giving a mere description of the above mentioned demonstration and failing to discuss or oven outline the issues at all. This action could only be justified on the grounds that the question at hand is of no great importance. If this is the opinion of the chevron, and the writers believe this is so (one need only consider the articles featured in the past few issues: Miss Oktoberflesh and the Rigid Tool, and federation waffle) then it appears that the chevron has abnegated its responsibility to concern itself with important moral and national issues. Yours sincerely, Lorraine Hodgson (Geog. IV) Peter Nadebaum (Chem. Eng. Grad)

Dissenter answers \ Rick Page’s letter

AS a member of the student council, I would like to answer . very briefly Rick Page’s open , letter which appeared in the last chevron. I voted against the firing of Alex Smith as editor of the chevron for mismanagement of funds. It should be made clear that the question of mismanagement of funds is NOT the real issue. It is used as a pretext by Page and Larry Burko to hide the reasons of their sudden involvement with the Chevron. The real question is that they want to “control” the content of the chevron (and make it a Yippie newspaper? ) . This was very clear at the last council’s meeting (both used the expression) and is exPosed even more Precisely in Page’s article. Talking about the sept. 10th issue of the chevron as well as of voices, he writes: “1 _ don’t think that any board or subsidiary of the federation should spend money on nothing, just so a budget can be totally used” (my emphasis 1. In other words, Page does not agree with the content of the paper. I could agree with him that there can come a point when the content of the chevron will determine the f’edera tion’s publishing it. Nevertheless, this question was not raised by Page. As long as this is not solved, I do not see how the *council or the federation as a whole could “censor” the chevron. The chevron’s staff is completely in’dependant in its editorial decisions from the federation and should remain so.

Thus Page wanted the Council to concerts but don’t tell me that accept his “idea” of what should or there exists a student who does not should not be published in the even care about what he is going to chevron. This is what he calls do with all the knowledge he has “refused to accept their respon- been accumulating for years. sibility", I certainlyrefuse it. To answer those questions, Page In his article, Page introduces and Burko have not even tried.

The unveiling of Nixon’s .’ economic policy TI


HE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of Nixon’s economic policy is illusion-the illusion that something is being done to alleviate unemployment and the illusion that his measures are simply normal actions taken in normal circu mstances. . Perhaps the illusion created will restore consumer confidence and bring the US economy out of its stagnation; for Nixon’s policies certainly won’t. According to the Hrookings institute, the direct effect of Nixon’s measures will provide 4.5 billion dollar expansion per year, a negligible amount in the face of a 1,000 billion dollar + economy with 6 percent unemployment.

Lollipop Boutique / Westmount Place (just behind Dominion) Nixon’s foreign program in a show of rage aginst world speculators who were weakening the US dollar Nixon suspended the con-, , vertibility of the dollar into gold. The world speculators were US corporations exchanging their dollar holdings for marks, francs and yens. The suspension confirmed the wisdom of their actions: it also delivered a fatal-blow to the weakening dollar. Since the dollar was in excess supply at its pre-august 15 level, it iet I in value. relative to al I the major currencies. The blow was premeditated. A drop in the value of the tlollar with respect to other currencies makes foreign goods more expensive for the american consumer and enables Clmc>rican exporters to sell their products for a lower price 111 foreign countries. American consumers are thereby supb’orti ng the profits of’ the exporters. While denouncing the unfair edge possessed by foreign ~oml~etition Nixon imposed a ten percent surcharge on t’xports. Done arbitrarily without consultation with any of the governments of the countries involved, the surcharge was in direct violation of the general agreerilent on tariffs ,Ind trade (GATT). Apparently the US administration does not take its own free trade ideology seriously when it is al,plied to the US. The import surcharge is applicable to all goods not limited by import quotoas (such as oil and gas) or subject to special trading agreements (such as the auto I>act and the defense production sharing agreement). Its general impact is on manufactured goods. Raw materials are as a rule excepted. 7 he tariff was aimed primarily at Japan which had been clxporting a mere 100 million dollars more than it has been been importing from the US. The tariff can be seen c>ssentialJy as a club with which to force or enforce a revaluation of the major currencies, to a level which the US government deems proper. It is however, highly unlikely that the Japanese will further revalue the yen as it will render Japanese exports more vulnerable in the entire world market.
