George Cross, dean of graduate studies and one of the original instigators of the integrated studies programme has submitted his resignation as chairman of the senate council of integrated studies. In an explanation of his decision, Cross stated monday that “the concept of a structureless programme of studies in which students make a substantial contribution in decision-making is an appealing one, but the manner in which this idea was actualized on this campus in integrated studies lends itself to considerable abuse.” He outlined his original involvement with integrated studies explaining that he has always been an advocate of programmes of learning which are alternatives to structured honours and general degree programmes in a university environment. Cross introduced a motion six years ago in the arts faculty council



recommending an investigation into the feasability of implementing a liberal arts and science programme. Subsequently, he served on a series of committees exploring the question of alternatives to existing forms of university instruction and learning .

somewhat differently.” At the time he accepted the position, Cross made it clear that he was aware of some of the problems associated with the programme, and stated that he had no illusions about what he could do for it. The conditions under which he

“I am strongly in favour of the view that learning is not always associated with, and can occur independently of, teaching, and that traditional programmes do not satisfy the needs of all people who wish to study and learn at the university level,” he stated. Because of his sympathy with the general philosophy behind the programme, Cross agreed to serve as chairman of the senate council on integrated studies last summer. He also ‘stated however that “if I had had influence on the establishment of the programme in the first instance, I would have designed it

IS meeting

by brute murphy the chevron

- Integrated Studies tried to get it all together in a meeting Wednesday night. The purpose of the meeting was unclear. The meeting was prompted by the recent resignation of IS senate council chairman George Cross and the decision made at council meeting last friday that the two applicants for bachelors of Independent Studies not be given their degrees due to alleged procedural irregularities. However neither topic seemed to be of interest at the beginning of the meeting as it quickly came to a briefing on two different possibilities for IS to take. The first is the one IS presently uses and was termed Independent Studies by the sponsor of this discussion, Dave Palmer. This system, it was argued, depends on a faculty with established resource people, or the people actually in the top levels of the department have to be hired on a long term basis. This necessitates that a student in IS searching for his own directions has to work with a person who has his own personal view of his field of specialty. This leads to the resource person imposing his standards and opinions on the student. On the other hand an approach could be to have o,nly the skeleton of a department hired on a full-time long term basis. This would significantly reduce the operating costs of the department, thus giving more money to be spent on the bringing in of outside people and lecturers. By this the students would have more say in what they are learning and they would be able to closely follow their education as they find out what they want to learn, for example with short term resource people a new one can be added when-there is no longer any use for the old one. This approach, the% Integrated, group centered approach, however, would require a greater degree of participation by the students. The question is of course, are the people in IS able to, 1or, even, willing to put all this extra effort into their education? The meeting then began to drift towards



a discussion on the resignation of George Cross and a possible replacement for him. George Haggar opened the discussion saying, “in the last few days I have been discussing a very important matter with a number of people. . .it seems that we have the choice of making fools of ourselves or to prove that we are a worthwhile project. . .we have a choice of initiating something now and befuddling our critics or standing back and allowing them to make all our decisions for us. I have before me a letter from Leo Johnson stating that he will place his name for the position of chairman of the senate council and I would like to make a motion that this group endorse him for the job.” However the people present were leary of voting on such a motion ,when many of them did not even know the man. It was suggested, and agreed upon, that meetings would be held that would enable the students in IS to meet the people applying- for the job. Discussing the chairman naturally led the group into a discussion of the senate council itself and what relevance or positon it had or should have within the department. Dave Palmer pointed out that the senate council was really a series of compromises made to please the senate. It was generally held by most that the Council was needed in IS to allow the senate to give out degrees to students thereby - allowing students in the programme to receive student loans. But Bill Smyth, administrative assistant to Integrated Studies, pointed out that the senate council itself was, at the moment, the body that allowed degrees and loans but that it could be replaced by another body. A motion was made that the people present vote to decide- if they wanted a senate council. This was amended to say 66. . . a senate council as presently constituted.” A great deal of discussion followed in which the motion changed its form completely to read “. . .approves of the senate council but would like to make a number of recommendations for improvements in its structure.” This was passed by a majority of those voting.

agreed to serve as chairman were that he would serve for only a limited period of time (of maximum length one year) with the understanding that he could resign as chairman when he felt that he could no longer serve the programme, the students in it, or the university ,and that the council could remove him when it wished. “Last fall”, stated Cross, “after the examination of integrated studies students who had applied for degrees, I asked the senate executiveto convene a confidential session of senate to discuss these exams and problems which ’ I believed could arise in the conduct of future exams. Senate executive did not accede to my wish.” In december 1971, Peter Brother, administrative assistant was promoted to a position in enviromental studies. At that time, Cross had decided that he “could not” and “should not” continue his association with integrated studies. He remained with the programme however, during the acquisition of the new administrative assistant, Bill Smyth, as he felt that his withdrawal at the same time that Smyth was being recruited might seriously damage the programme. Cross feels that the main problem with the integrated studies programme is “lack of direction given by senate in the original charter establishing the programme, and in subsequent revisions thereof, concerning the criteria and procedures to be used in choosing resource persons for the programme, in determining whether or not students should get degrees, in deciding between acceptable and unacceptable

on details, Improvements were. the next item to be, discussed. There were not many presented but a few good points were brought out. Dave Palmer made a motion that all work of the senate council be moved into committees, with each committee having on it a majority of students and that all committee decisions be binding on the council. This alone would be sufficient to ensure student power in the decision, making processes of Integrated Studies if the students were willing to get involved. Another improvement was better feedback. Council members kept pointing out that they never knew what the rest of the students wanted. Ways to alleviate this

programmes of study, and in discriminating between acceptable and unacceptable performance by academic students.” Cross stressed that clear direction from senate and strong support of the programme by the university generally are important “to give the programme the good reputation and high quality that the many good and highly motivated students in integrated studies would like it to have.” He said that “in a learning situation where there is a high degree of participation by students in deliberations and decision-making the point of view of students (though sometimes immature, naive and confused) must be balanced, qualified, restrained and influenced by the views of mature, experienced, responsible and sympathetic faculty members. This kind of deliberative debate, conducted under tension, but in good faith, rarely occured during meetings of the senate council even though students and resource persons were outnumbered by faculty nine to six.” Cross recommended that “senate must, on the basis of its experience over the past three years, recast and revitalize the programme in integrated studies, in order to create a viable programme of independent studies which does not lend itself to the kind of abuse to which the present programme has been subverted.” “Above all,” he said, “senate must act to protect the many excellent students now in integrated entered studies who the programme with high hopes and in good faith.”

rhetoric problem were suggested as a telephone; tree, more uses of Isanews, the IS newsletter and more student attendance at senate council meetings. Other items brought out in this discussion ‘were student parity, student majority and a better way of involving people in the decision making. During the discussion Jack Butler, psych prof and a member of the senate council said “If the students got together they could have a’ responsive senate council by choosing the people on it. What IS needs is a responsive senate council that’ the -senate trusts.”

Students booted s-enate executive Members of the senate executive voted last night to remove four students from their meeting. The executive was about to discuss-George Cross’ resignation from IS council. Federation president Terry Moore and vice-president David Roberston had been invited to the meeting by chairman Burt Matthews. They made representations on a day to be set aside to discuss the future of the university. Two chevron reporters also attended. The executive accepted the resignations of Bob Wang and Marvin Brownmembers of the senate executive serving on a federation-senate committee to plan a program for the day. Wang spent half an hour telling why he personally could not serve on the committee. He said he can not agree with the terms of reference which stipulate that the University of Waterloo Act will be discussed. Moore proposed that the executive consider Maria Arguelles-Canive of Human Relations to replace the members who had resign. Senate accepted her, but refused to accept Moore’s other choice,

out of meet

Mike Byrd of Renison as the other member. Roberston clarified the intent of the project as “to close down the university for one day” to allow as many persons as possible to participate in the discussion. Matthews became upset at this. “I will not allow the university to be closed down”. Moore countered, “We’ll put on the day without you.” The senate then passed a motion calling for the program committee to report to Matthews by March 14th and present their recommendation to the senate on the 16th. Moore then asked that he and the other students be allowed to stay for the discussion of Cross’ resignation. With little discussion the executive voted against geography professor Ralph Krueger’s motion to allow the students to stay. As Moore left he told the executive : “If you are talking about students and faculty (in IS), you should invite them here, so they can represent themselves, instead of getting a one-sided account of what is going on.”

Dave Palmer summed up the purpose of the discussions and motions made !‘First _ we should find out what we want to do, make the motions here tonight, present them to the senate council and find out just what power or influence we do have by seeing if they give approval to our motions.” The point was then brought up that the people ought to discuss the recent actions of the senate council in reversing the decisions of the examining boards of Mike C0rbet.t and Roscoe Bell that they (Mike and Roscoe) be granted their Bachelors of Independent Studies. But this proved to be a difficult topic to keep from bogging down and many times the proceedings were kept from following a logical trail by emotional outpourings from people actually involved. Members of the senate council tried, under questioning to explain why they had acted the way they had. Many reasons were given. Faculty members seemed more concerned with the aspects that the irregularities of the proceedings(assuming they did exist) would endanger the

reputations of some and the existence of Integrated Studies. Student members seemed to say that they had been. conditioned into it by talk of the danger to IS if the degrees were granted. Proponents of the degree being granted kept pressing to be told what exactly the “procedural irregularities” were, but they did not seem to allow Bill Smyth to answer them. Smyth tried to explain what had made the senate council act the way it did. He said that the examining committee ’ chairmen had both mentioned some degree of intimidation on them in the exam. This was the main reason given although it was also mentioned that there , had almost been a carnival air about the proceedings. Many people present seemed to be in a greement with Dave Palmer when he made a motion that the meeting recom‘mend to the senate committee that it act upon the examining committees’ recommendations that Corbett and Bell be q awarded their degrees. But this motion never came to a vote. The discussion became lost in a discussion of the validity of in camera meetings of the senate council and then broke up with the motion lying unfinished.

The joint-meeting of the old and new student councils, held on March 2, was a refreshing study in contrast. Rick Page’s incumbent government showed only eight members present to transfer power to their successors. Terry



On sunday march 5, an informal meeting of federation council media members, campus representatives, and assorted interested parties met at Shantz Station on highway 7. . The purpose of this meeting was, as council president Terry Moore stated, “to get our heads together, find out where the federationis at, and where it should go.” A bus left the university at eleven thirty in the morning (believe it or not) and the meeting started by general consent at noon. There was no leader (though in effect Terry Moore proved to be) and the only agenda was a printout called “Where do we go from here? ” It dealt with the nominal aims of different departments in the federation and called, for discussion. Topics of conversation ranged from a proposed ecological conference to the suggestion of publishing a literary magazine to appear perhaps twice a year. Of particular interest to many was the idea for a student directory,

Moore’s enthusiastic new council showed up in full force with the one exception being George Greene who is off campus for work term. The meeting was held in the administration’s luxurious board and senate room, doubtless the very place where a decision to fire seven technicians from the biology-chemistry workshop took place. So it goes.

at retreat listing points of interest inthe twincities for frosh and visitors. It has been suggested that the directory appear in a book set together with Professor Kemp’s new publication, “downer and bitchin”. All plans are still tentative and depend heavily on an Opportunities for Youth grant from the government. The rap-retreat eventually disintegrated into many subgroups with a wide variety of subjects. This retreat was not a policy-making meeting, as was pointed out by Terry Moore, but rather a chance for the federation to become internally oriented and provide anyone interested with the opportunity to put forth their ideas and suggestions as to what the priorities of the student government should be. Mr. Moore was gratified at the number of people who turned out and the fresh ideas submitted. The federation has opened the doors wide to student interest and participation. The meeting on ,thursday march 9 was open to the public with an invitation to attend, as will be all future sessions.

Kirk on science morality ‘ Professor David Kirk, in his bomb, when dropped lecture last friday, declared that he had no answers to the questions of morality in science. In fact, he stated that there are probably no good answers to these questions. The social and political aspects of science interest Kirk primarily. He stated that science is not well organized and that statements to this effect are outright lies. Ac’ cidental discoveries account for a greater knowledge increase rather careful, preplanned than methodical work. His feelings contrast sharply with those of Libby who said that one should develop weapons for the sake of having weapons. The atom

At this time, a survey of Americans showed that only about one-fifth had any moral conscience about the mass killings.

After an introduction of the new councillors the prime business of the meeting was the appointment of Terry Moore’s new executive and ratification of the appointments by the new council. Speaker for the Moore government is John Hooker. He stated that his duties would be to arrange and co-ordinate all meetings; acting as policeman if things got “hairy”. He expressed the desire to do as little actual speaking as possible, hoping rather that things would go smoothly. representative Dave Arts Robertson was selected as vicepresident. Though he has no experience at this type of job he has progressive ideas. He wants to open up the federation workings to the general student population, get more people involved in more activities, and sponsor greater cooperation between faculty societies and the federation. The treasurer appointed was Doug Austrom who will also be an ex officio member of the executive board. Bernie Mohr, president of the psychology society, will head the board of external relations. Caught up in a psychology meeting, mister Mohr brought a peace offering of doughnuts as retribution for his tardiness. Dave Peltz, director for the board of education; ours, announced dissatisfaction with the educational system, claimed that we have student power; finally proposing the use of campus media as an instrument of education .for the student mass.

turned out to be one of a useless experiment in participatory as we// as a futile attempt to deal with issues. Real issues,


in centre

Last thursday night a girl of about twenty bought several hits of what she thought was MDA in the campus centre. Friday night, a few hours after taking one, she was in convulsions, which a doctor at K-W hospital said were caused by strychnine poisoning. Strychnine, in very minute quantities, is a powerful stimulant. In larger dose’s it causes death by over-stimulating the nervous system to such a degree that -muscles contract uncontrollably. After a short series of violent convulsions the victim dies. It is often used as an effective rat poison. Strychnine is sometimes added to drugs such as MDA because it is a cheap stibstitute, undetectable by the user since it produces a similar effect. The profit to the dealer increases by the proportion of strychnine to MDA. Of course,


the chance of death to the user increases in proportion to the increase in profit. At present there is a shortage of MDA and acid in southwestern Ontario,-and strychnine and heroin are being sold instead, or mixed with them. The girl who was rushed to K-W emergency friday night survived. The doctor at the intensive care unit was surprised that -she was still alive when she arrived, noting that such cases usually die after. five convulsions. She had gone through about twenty. Apparently a person behind the campus centre desk Thursday helpfully pointed out someone who the girl could score MDA from. There is no way a user of chemicals can know whether they’re doing sani flush, rat poison or the real stuff with that down home flavour. Watch out.

The debate heated quickly at last thursday’s UGAG (Undergraduate Affairs Group) meeting with the presentation of a motion by Ron Lambert regarding compulsory Canadian content courses. The motion, preceeded by a laborious 2 hour discussion of existing categories of compulsory requirements for the B.A., quickly evoked the ire of most committee members. Lambert’s proposal, seconded bi Leo Johnson, read as follows: “That all students registered in the Faculty of Arts shall, as a part of their p_rogramme towards the B.A., obtain credit in three full courses designated as containing ‘significant . Canadian content’.” Lambert’s introductory comments attempted to counter possible objections, as he had done in a lengthy memo circulated to all A&s professors, which might take discussion away from the central issue. He stated, quite emotionally, that the proposal itself was mild in nature and that outcries of ‘compulsion’ and ‘insufficient choice’ were spurious. Apparently anticipating a defensive reaction on the part of the committee, Lambert noted that even this modest a proposal had brought him the label ‘nazi’. Outlining the rationale behind the motion, Johnson zeroed in on the condition of the contemporary university. He suggested that while learning is ‘international’ in nature all culture and work Qccur ‘within a particular milieu’. Good teaching requires that presentation take place from within the host milieu, while most america‘ns have seen fit to teach from within their own experience rather than adapting to the Canadian context. Both Lambert and Johnson took great pains to explain that the courses they were requesting were not to be taught from specific bias. The proposal was minor in that it didn’t ask for courses featuring the opinions of any particular group, but asked only that the courses centre on Canada. Committee members repeatedly asked whether the proposal would in fact overcome the problems pf Canadian content; both Lambert and Johnson noted the mildness of the proposal and suggested that it was merely a beginning. Lambert added that Canadian Studies people had worked for several years to bring these problems to the attention of the community with little or no response from academics. He stated that he was ‘tired of the pious intentions mouthed in departmental meetings’ over the lack of Canadian content.



Phil Merikle, a psych prof and UGAG member, was ‘somewhat upset’ that that the motion was to be presented directly to Arts Faculty Council rather than remaining within UGAG for deliberation. Merikle was-afraid that UGAG was being bypassed without ‘a reasonable amount of time’ for ‘a reasonable solution’. Lambert retorted that this type of delaying response was what lead them to go beyond UGAG in the first place. He wished to let neither UGAG nor the arts faculty council ‘off the hook’ and wanted to taste ‘the fruits of the pious intentions’. Another strain of committee opinion was articulated by Ken Davis who felt that the whole affair smacked of confrontation and disliked the ‘compulsion’ involved. He questioned Lambert as to whether the demand was ‘negotiable or not’ and added that while ‘shock treatment’ might have its place in overcoming complacency, he could not .participate under this condition. Lambert, quite affronted, retorted that the proposal was ‘a compromise of compromises of compromises’. Lambert added that things had degenerated to the point where ,‘no matter how moderate’ proposals in this area were, they were always treated as radical. People over react to them and in the end they ape ‘gutted’. Throughout the meeting a rather guarded discussion of nationalism took place, with committee members at times displaying an abstract sympathy for the state of Canadian academe. Lambert countered this by suggesting that while everyone was ‘sympathetic’ no one in fact did anything about the problems and, when presented with an opportunity, squelched the proposal. In the end Lambert was accused of politicizing a non-political issue. In response he argued that the committee was itself a political grouping as could be judged from its actions. The evidence of this was the lack of debate concerning course content in its day to day business. -Lambert accused the committee of ‘rubber stamping’ its decisions and cited the example of several new courses on American literature for the Department of english which had been passed with no discussion of content. Lambert claimed that the only instance of debate and concern over content arose when the subject was Canada. I He judged that this was acutely political and claimed that the animosity towards him lay in his having exposed the politics that alkeady existed. The meeting adjourned without a decision.

- Proposal to UGAG on mandatory Canadian studies by prof ron lambert

Motives are rarely easy to decipher. Whatever motives were operating among representatives to the Undergraduate Affairs Group of the Faculty of Arts, (March 2), their effect was a hostile receptioti for the proposal that Arts students take three courses having “significant Canadian content” on the way to a B.A. Some seemed to be simply timid, afraid lest they appear racist, illiberal, and all those other naughty things which academics fear most, but which are not at all foreign to our souls. Others owed their loyalty to their disciplines and professional associations, preferring to believe that these are somehow untainted by the world anQ immune from national interests. Still others .were American nationaiists, asserting their right to transfer their miljeu to Canada unconstrained by obligations to this national community. F-or perhaps a few, there was a genuine uncertainty as to the merits and implications of the proposal. No doubt t,here were other motives at work, too. Unfortunately, it is the? effect with which we must contend. The reasons for the C.S. proposal have been offered before, but they bear repeating. We believe that the fact of Canada must be acknowledged explicitly and deliberately, and given a high priority, in our definition of education at this university. We have tried to work quietly and on the periphery for the past few years, and with very little success in achieving this end. We do not feel that we can wait for the indefinite future to see a greater acknowledgement of Canada in our curriculum and consequently, in our employment practices. It is ironic that we should be moving in a laisser-faire direction throughout the educational system at a time when this country faces severe problems imternally and externally. The secondary schools

have opted for yoluntarism, and the universities have simply failed to address themselves to the matter of collective selfunderstanding. We construe as institutional indifference what many disguise as individual choice. By reneging on our responsibilities to citizenship or the community, we have become mere feeders for the economic system. Ironically, we attack the Wright Commission Report for its failure to concern itself with “quality”, while we ourselves have become so ’ enamored with the mechanics of self-determination that we scarcely have fhe time or courage to ask about the purpose(s) of the university. And ironically, we hear the common . lament that we are not “a” University, but several university, little tied together by any common purpose. The Wright Commission is us, and we don’t like ourselves. We believe it is time to build the requirements of citizenship into the structure of the University. Though imperfect, we have offered the C.S. proposal in this spirit. Representatives to U.G.A.G. r;iised all kinds of objections which were readily overcome in their other deliberations. Compulsion was offensive in the C.S. proposal, but it was acceptable in the specific requirement of some number of courses in the humanities, and so on. The C.S. proposal would be redundant because students elect these courses anyway, but redundancy in the case of the social science requirements was ac, ceptable. The C.S. proposal was nonacademic in its motivation, but dropping the language, (substitute) requirement would destroy the departments concerned. The C.S. proposal was nationalistic, although absolutely no awareness or interest was afforded the possibility that the existing arrangements might themselves be nationalistic, however un-

deliberately arrived at. The C.S. proposal would require some difficult decisions concerning what constitutes “significant _Canadian content”, although U.G.A.G. regularly makes these kinds of decisions. (The routinization of the decision process conveniently disguises the real complexity of these decisions.) The C.S. proposal would somehow require--the approval of the content of a course, though this is presumably a responsibility which the University discharges in accepting any course for credit towards a degree. It would be easy to continue in this vein. The point of this exercise is to suggest that when the objections are stripped away, what remains is a rejection of Canada in our curriculum as a distinct responsibility. What is being said is that Canada is not our business. Perhaps the climax of, the U.G.A.G. meeting occurred whne the lengthy proposal from the English department was accepted. The following were among the new courses adopted. English 345A (Imagination and Reality: The American Writer’s Sense of the World) A testing of the “supreme fictions” of such major writers as Wallace Stevens,..... . English 345B (The Southern Myth) Its origins in early literature, its flowering, testing and shattering, as in the works of Twain, Faulkner, Grau, and O’Con_nor, as in the black literature of Wright, Ellison, Baldwin, and Jones ,.....Perhaps U.G.A.G. was correct in accepting the English shopping list. What is striking is that no questions were asked by members of U.G.A.G. There were no questions concerning the academic content of the courses. There were no questions concerning any notion of balance within the overall English offerings. There were no questions concerning what society the courses were

preparing the students for. There was a concern, however, with packiging. The merchandisers in the English Department, faced with a declining share of the market, sought to dffer a more attractive product to catch the fancy of the student r shopper. In the best traditions of consumerism, customer choice was being shaped. In short, an academic decision was taken to improve the saleability of American content in the English Department. Objections which were to haunt the. C.S. proposal later in the meeting were not to be heard. Only the dull thud of a rubberstamp, and the deliberations moved on to a discussion of whether Religious Studies properly belonged in the Aciii) or A(i) set of requirements. All ,of this is not to say that people were not unconcerned with the C.S.proposaI. -‘Many an affirmative “yes, but...” and cautious “isn’t there another way?” were heard. The representative from one department lamented that we might be following in the parochial footsteps of ’ American nationalists (I assume he meant those on the other side of the border). Another representative worried that the natjonalism of Lambert and Jahnson was tainted with arrogance, and reminded all that he was surely as good a Canadian as the next person. Another representative affirmed his basic sympathies, but wondered aloud whether it was possible to affirm Canada without discriminating against-faculty on t_he grounds of national origin or political beliefs. And then there was the representative who, in ringing terms, asserted his inalienable rights to teach whatever he wished, and denied to anyone the authority to instruct him what to teach. And so it went, a truly moving experience. U.G.A.G. had become the Continental Congress. Surely from this augusf body must emerge a Declaration of Independence.

In looking back over my recent columns, I’m struck by the abscence of good 01’ rock’n’roll records : the pop-rock, folk-rock, and country-rock styles are all well-represented, but I seem to have neglected the greasy kid stuff. While this may say more about my personal tastes than it does about the quality of current rock releases, I do detect a general failure of energy on the part of traditionally “hard” groups, resulting in desultory experimentation and such hopefully temporary aberrations as .“downer rock”. A distinguished exception to this trend, however, is the new album Mitch Ryder’s Detroit bY (Paramount PAS SOlO>, which I especially recommend to anyone tired of having his head fucked over by Black Sabbath-Grand Funk nonsense. “Mitch Ryder and the Detriot Wheels” were among the first white groups. to make effective use of the R&B and Soul traditions, and Detroit combines this heritage with just enough electricity to appeal to a very broad spectrum of the rock audience. e “Long Neck Goose” and “Let It Rock” should at least get the juices flowing, but it’s the great Lou Reed’s (The Velvet Underground> “Rock’n Roll” which will absolutely inflame your brain and make your feet dance neat and sweet. It’s about your “life saved through rock and roll,” and it has to be the killer album cut of the year. The other songs are uniformly good, if necessarily of a lower intensity, particularly a raunchy version of “It Ain’t Easy” which rivals that of the mysterious Ray Davies. Watch out for Detroit: if they ever do a whole album of the quality of “Rock’n Roll”, such lost arts as dancing, shucking, and jiving could do for our bodies what the other stuff sometimes does for our heads. “War” has also been through some changes recently, getting out from under the dubious influence of Eric Burdon and discovering that a relaxed brand of soul-rock is their ‘most comfortable bag. All Day Music (United Artists 5546) is so relaxed that it took me several listenings to appreciate War’s rather unique blending ,of rock, jazz, and soul elements; it wears well, however, and provokes “Hey, what’s that?” reactions from friends who usually abhor “soul music”. There is one “You all get up and boogie” cut, but it’s quite energetic and contrasts nicely with the more lyrical tone of the other songs. “All Day Music”, an AM hit,’ is typical: following bossa nova rhythm’ overlaid by strong individual statements from guitar, organ, and s,ax, supporting choral and solo vocals which reinforce the generally mellow atmosphere. War contains no individual supers tars, but since their collective efforts are very well arranged, they can bring off longer tracks without obviously exhausting their resources : There’s none of the “Rod Stewart did his thing, now the Small Faces are going to mess around for awhile” feeling that can vitiate a band which opts for equal time irrespective of talent. All Day Music is a distinctive album located somewhere in the musical space bvetween Santana and The Chambers Brothers, but not sounding “just like” anyone

else that I can think of. You could do much worse-judging by record sale’s charts, you are doing much worse-than by giving war a chance. Would you believe me if I told you that the Jackson 5 Greatest Hits (Tamla M741-L) album is a qualified gas? Since you mothers hardly ever respond, I haven’t a clue, but I’ll tell you anyway. The first three cuts on Side One, “I Want You Back”, “ABC”, and “Never Can Say Goodbye”, are among the niftiest Motown singles ever ‘made, pure sugar-coated nonsense totally devoid of social significance, and as enjoyable as puppy love and takin’ your baby out for’ an ice cream soda. This album also includes more than a bit of “filler”, for example the 4:46 “Maybe Tomorrow”, which simply proves that any Motown song over 3 minutes in length is probably a bummer. But how can you dislike a 14year old lead singer who puts over such lyrics as


It’s drivin’ me nuts ! I’m givin’ you all the candy, You’re givin’ him all your love ! I mean, you can’t, right? _ Seriously, folks, this is by no means the album of the year, but it is a welcome treat to those of us who listen to old Guess Who singles when we think we’re alone, and remember The Supremes, The Temptations, Martha and the Vandellas, etc., with something approaching nostalgic affection. Into each life, after all, a little cotton’ candy must fall. Back in the hard-rock vein, Mountain’s Flowers of Evil (Windfall 5501) is a rather obvious attempt to produce a one-record version of Cream’s Wheels on Fire: one side in the studio, one live, and with Felix Pappalardi as the common human denominator. Since Mountain is at best a secondstring Cream, however, we have not surprisingly been presented with what is at best a second-string album. Mountain isn’t bad live, so side two contains acceptably speedy renditions of “Roll Over’ Beethoven” and “Mississippi Queen”, interspersed with some instrumental noodling during which you can go to the john or whatever. But side one is another story: five of the dullest and most lyrically convoluted songs since the last Fairport Convention album, of which the first stanza of “Pride and Passion” is typical: One man’s life passed all in needing. Words out loud that want repeating. Fathers passed to sons their craving. Woman’s loved. Their children saving kings who walk with banners waving still. To hearken back to Wheels on Fire, side one has all the pretension of “Pressed Rat and Warthog” with none of its saving humour, and is just about impossible to listen to unless you’re doing something else. And that’s too bad, because Mountain live is a healthy cut above the Grand Funk-James Gang number, capable of generating excitement w’lthout making you feel vaguely guilty about it. Stay away from those studios, guys, and better luck next time. --pad




Photo Finis As a drama keviewer I have seen the majority of plays put on at this university this y’ear. Of these, Friday night’s performance of The Innocents wasone of the best so far. Actors vriere well chosen and some of the acting was exceptionally good. Of all the plays in the ser‘ies in horror theatre it came closest to building up awe of supernatural evil. The play turns on the supposed connection two children have with their former valet, called Quint, and with a former governess called Miss Jessel. According to what their new governess imagines, the children ire still under the wicked influence of these people, now dead, the boy under that of Quint and the girl under Miss Jessel’s. The children give the current governess, Miss Giddens, some. reason to believe as she does. Often their _ pranks, for example, the dressing-up game, seem sinister, suggesting that the children actually do know what their governess has come to believe i,s true. The poems they recite in their game imply, to Miss Giddens, knowledge of Quint whom she has felt watching her as she walked in the garden near the house. Both of the children are very attractive to Miss Giddens so that when she discovers apparent communion between them and thk ghosts she becomes quite upset. How could two children accept the evil that’ Quint and Miss Jesse1 represent? It begins to seem to her that the children use their nonchalance towards evil against her, teasing her with their knowledge as when Miles, with wisdom unusual for a boy of his age, says to her tQat evil is only ‘in what you

think might happen’. She believes, however, that the children cannot fully know what evil is; therefore, she tries to have them admit that evil when the ghosts appear to her. Flora, the young girl, refuses, to do so; instead, she breaks down into tears utider the pressure Miss Giddens exerts against her to confess she sees Miss Jessel’s ghost when she, Miss Giddens, does. Failing that, Flora is sent away to her uncle’s so that distance may protect her from the corrupting influence of Miss Jessel. Miles, too, must suffer because of Miss Giddens. She begiris by questioning him about a letter she thought he might have stolen, a letter to her employer about the harm she saw the children undergoing. While questioning Miles, Quint appears and Miss Giddens begs Miles to use the opportunity to renounce him. He does but immediately dies in her arms. Did the childFen actually feel the corrupting presence of the ghosts? The ques‘tion is never answered but there is left the haunting suspicion that the evil Miss Giddens felt to be there was there and the children would use her fear of it against her and for their own pleasure. The horror of The Innocents consists partly in what ‘innocents’ will do to others with their sometimes eery knowledge and partly ifi what using that knowledge can do to them. Siri Barrett-Lennord’s handling of Flora’s role was remarkably intelligent. She was impish and devious and then coyly innocent just the way Flora should have b-n. She had a big role to play and her enthusiasm for her part gave

an impoi-tant lift to a play which was heavy with the anxiety of its adults. Mrs. Grose, a character I have not mentioned, was the maid of the house (the setting of the play) who provided the new governess with her knowledge of Quint and Miss Jessel. Her certitude of such homely virtues as cleanliness and her grandmotherly care for the children outlined the children’s ‘innocence’ and made it seem more poignant-and more terrible. Irene Price, who played the role, did convey such qualities particularly with her rarely flustered tut-tutting tone of voice, a tone that Mrs. Grose would have believed could soothe and admonish at the same time. Some of her reactions, however, were untoward as, for exam le., her reaction to Flora’s ship s9 ory . Susan White’s Miss Gi’ddens quite obviously doted on the children. When she first met with. Flora she. seemed very much the governess, smiling at and admiring Flora’s every social grace and each witticism. Later as her awareness of the children’s corruption increased,, Miss Giddens’ admiration was mixed with distress and fear. The tension between admiration and fear that Susan had to convey was broadly correct.

Robin Cowan, too, made important contributions to his part in the play. Although sometimes he was too restrained, this same restraint became at other times the self-control suggestive of the cool rascal- that Miles was. But, then, Robin probably knows what it’s like to be a Miles.

3 of clubs

The inveterate reader of bridge columns must have seen at least half a dozen columns which looked similar to this one. West leads the three of clubs (MUD), and East takes the first two tricks with the queen and ace, and continues with



a third club. Declarer! ruffs, draws trump, and looks around for new worlds to conquer. Take a few moments now, to plan your play-without, of course, looking at the East-West)lands. (If you still can’t figure out the winning line Of play, even after looking at all four hands, keep reading bridge columns, and don’t ever play for money.) Usually, one is tol,d, Declarer takes a losing heart finesse, and a heart comes back, at which point some gibberish is inserted about “the dog who didn’t bark”, whereupon the innocent reader is told that since East passed originally, and has shown up with eleven points already, he simply can’t have the queen of diamonds; so our hero tiust take what is called a “backward finesse” (advanced play no.* 187), leading the knave from his hand, and when it is covered, take it with the king, and hook the ter, on the way back. As those of you who cheated and peeked at the West hand know, this line of play doesn’t work either. Like the man said, close, but no cigar. If you took the backward finesse, give yourself one cigarette, and better luck next time. If you took both simple finesses, explain to everybody how it’s supposed to be a 75 percent line of play, and besides your finesses never work, and,you don’t understand why you always lose, and.. .

Those of you who haven’t dropped out by now and taken up gin rummy should have found the corr’ect line of play. Since you know that West has both of the’ red queens, why not play him for them? Simply cash the top hearts, exit with the knave, and say gin. (Even if, by some horrible twist of fate, East should show up with the lady-a curse on “sound opening bids” -you still make the contract if he has either diamond h’onour, and he ‘may be foolish enough to give you the contract via a ruffsluff : anyone who would pass such a hand to begin with, in the third seat, no less ! doesn’t have a superabundance of in telligetice 1. If you got the right answer immediately, give yourself a<. cigar (unless you are a lady, in which case a tiparillo should suffice), and come out to demonstrate your mastery of the game tuesdays at 7 pm in the social sciences lounge, or if because of idiot partners you still have less than 20 master points, clean up in the novice game sunday evenings in the third floor math lounge. Due to the favourable response, iye will be continuing our series of introductory lectures, beginning at seven; game time (for those of you who already know everything) is 7:3O. In addition, this sunday’s game will have a club tournament rating, so come out and win a few of the bejillions of master points that will be aivarded! / J

Autobiography .of.,an Emancipated Woman The Autobiography of a Sexually Emancipated munist Woman, by Alexandra Kollontai, Herder Herder, N.Y. 1971.

‘leading.force’ of her life and activity. It is an account of the long, arduous and lonely struggle of Alexandra Kollontai, fighting prejudice within her party to get the question of woman’s rights included as one of its aims. She passive resistance, little understanding, says, “much even less interest for this aim, over and over again, lay as an obstacle in the path.” She wanted to give woman a ‘place of honour in human society; not according to her femininity but according to her worth as a human being.’ Kollontii saw that this could not take place by means of I the bourgeois-minded suffragette movement that already existed in Russia. She says.. .“my Marxist outlook pointed out to me with an illuminating clarity that women’s liberation could take place only as a result of the victory of a new social order and a different economic system”. It was not until 1914 that Kollontai saw results for her work; both factions of the Communist Party started to deal with the question in a serious way. She saw this as ‘almost tantamount to a personal commendation.’ , Whether this was so is very suspect. Kollontai was one of the most hated and ostracized members of the Communist Party. She was branded as a ‘mad female Bolshevik’ by the press, as a syndicali,st and a free love advocate by members of her own party. At one point ,Lenin referred td l%r moral beliefs gs ‘anti-Marxist and anti-social.’ Kollontai made practically no mention of this in her autobiography. She passed all criticisms off by saying, “I did not worry at all of the hatred around me and, of course there was also a great number of enthusiastic friends....who were utterly devoted to me.” Kollontai was accused of supporting the glass-of-water theory of sex (when one is thirsty, one drinks) so vehemently opposed by Lenin. ‘Free-love’ became identified with the name of Alexandra Kollontai, which she supposedly supported in her book “‘Love of Three Generations”. All of the attacks (some of them were physical! > and.criticisms stemmed from her championing of women’s rights in the new Soviet St&e. She proposed a new proletarian morality and the overthrow of the old capitalist view of sexual behavior. She wanted the new Soviet woman to have full freedom -in a new kind of


Kollontai’s autobioiraphy serves only as an appetizer. It is a short 48 page account, written in a very tense, restricted,style, of her life’as a revolutionary. The reader is left with a thirst to know more about the personal life of this intriguing feminist. Kollontai began writing with the premise that, in an autobiography, one must forget that ‘one is writing about oneself’ and must write only about the events in life that ‘are most useful to the general public’. This is disappointing, especially to the present day women’s liberationist; Kollontai left out most of the references to her own personal struggle as a woman trying to free herself from the bonds of the old morality. The personal and social problems regarding sexuality are the most difficult ones facing revolutionary women today and the ones that cause the most confusion in countries where women are striving to be liberated. Perhaps Kollontai could have offered more’ insight into the problem by writing of her own struggles on a more personal level. The book does give us a sketchy ,account of the development of the Communist Party from the stage of a vanguard to that of a highly bureaucratized oppressive party. We get glimpses of in-party quarrels and problems of policy in dealing with the drastic changes taking place in Russia in the first quarter of the 20th century. The second part of the book is Kollontai’s essay describing the ‘new woman’, the ideal she consciously tried to live up to in her daily life. In this section she writes in an optimistic flowing style. Her ideas about the ‘new woman’ comprise one of the most relevant aspects of the book. Her hopes for the new woman can be summarized in this statement, “..before us no longer stands the ‘wifie’, the shadow of the husband-before us stands the personality, the woman as human being .” There does seem to be a theme running throughout the autobiography and that is Kollontai’s struggle for the liberation of the working class woman. She saw this as the

& Alan

Since it has become culturally unacceptable to subscribe to Reader’s Digest, one of the most frustrating dilemmas faced by happy hippy hosts is what to have on hand fbr that all-important literary medium, toilet reading. In order to accommodate guests, communards, and oth&r assorted visitors, it is of absolute necessity to have available interesting, humourous, and, hopefully, richly illustrated material for the tasteful’shitter. Some of our past favourites have included Ted Mark’s Man From O.R.G.Y. novels, R. Crumb and Stan Lee comix; the Holy Bible, Hermann Hesse, and, of course, the Chevron, which doubles as an acceptable anal tissue. Now, we’re pleased to suggest two recent and appropriate offerings from Putnams and Penguin, which any enterprising person can probably rip-off from the book store. The first, How a Satirical Editor Became a- Yippie Conspirator in Ten Easy Years, is a best worst collection culled from the Realist, aythored by America’s most jaundiced eyed, satirist Paul Krassner. The pieces are chronologically arranged, dating from the magazine’s 1958 beginnings and spanning the sixties. As the title implies, this arrangement permits the reader a peek at one individual’s political development (Krassner, it seems, began his irreverent career as an atheist before moving on to higher pursuits than religion). He writes at times in a spiyit akin to Jonathan Swift’s ‘A Modest Proposal.’ As with this satirical classic, some of Krassner’s best work, f’rinstance the parts that were left out of Manchester’s book on the JFK assasination, are guaranteed to gross out any reader who possesses even the slightest modicum of decency and taste.


communist family. Specifically, she wanted to end the sexual expLoitation of women by men. She tried to defend herself by saying that she was preaching to women to free themselves from ‘the enslavement of love to a man.’ Perhaps this was asking for too much of a change too quickly. Whatever the cause, the first few years after the revolution were confusing with regard to sexuality, and Kollontai, accused of championing a libertine philosophy of sex, became the ‘enfant terrible’ of ‘the Communist Party. Perhaps Kollontai’s ideas were too advanced for her party and her time. Her belief that women must have equality in sexual relationships was regarded as ‘feminist nonsense’. However, Kollontai was perceptive enough to know that women would end up in the same authoritarian family structures if the sexual morals were not changed in concurrence with the changing economic conditions. Kollontai’s theory seems to have held true. Although women workers are ubiquitous throughout Russia, there is also a noted lowered stabs for the vocations where women predominate su+ as public health, education and medicine (general practitioner 1. There is still an absence of women in the higher political positions and the fact remains that working women end up doing a full-time job and running the home as well. Although Kollcjntai’s personal life is still an enigma, there are enough cdnnotations in the little that she did write to make any of her not yet translated works welcome. This will be especially so to men and women interested in knowing the dialectics of living as a revolutionary within a society not yet rea’dy to accept changing life-styles and changing morality in women but quite ready to speak of and create revolution. The Communist Party in Russia helped to begin the revolution and failed on this very important issue, and the New Left in Western society, while they intellectualize and analyze in Marxist jargon, always place women’s liberation as something secondary to the liberation of the working class. We can learn a lesson from Kollontai. Read it!


geoff r6y

editor yippie conspirator Elsewhere, straight akticles from publications like the Journal of the American Medical Association, concerning such thoroughly revolting topics as foreign bodies in the rectum and fracturg of the penis, are reprinted verbatim : “causes (of per% fracture) -were hsted as follows: striking or kneading with the hand to reduce erection+ cases; rolling over in bed-4 ,cases; cases ; coitus-? bumping into chair-l case; thrown on saddlehorn of motorcycle-l case; striking toilet seat-l case; kickedjn ’ fight-l case; kicked by horse-l case; slammed in car door-l’case.” Continuing to fuck more with reality (and, to enjoy it ’ more), Krassner has conducted Realist experiments which seem to prove that people will believe almost anything; he invented a town called Farnsworth, New Jersey, which had supposedly made it a statutory offence to advocate the overthrow of the municipal sanitation department, and received incredulous feedback from the straight press who wer’e ‘bothered only because Farnsworth couldn’t be located on a map. In the same vein, he wrote an obituary of his friehd Lenny Bruce two years before the fact, a story which was picked up and reported by the wireservices. As Krassner points out, the strength of such put-ons is their very believability, a fact which is, itself, painfully hilariously indicative of the terminal state of our (North American) culture. There is a tragi-comic duality to insanity, both on a’n individual level and on a societal level; its on the mass level which Krassner, with tongue positioned firmly in cheek, explores and illuminates, unintentionally producing, we b?lieve, legitimate illegitimate literary art in the process. You must decide whether’ or not to believe the above; but if you find yourself chuvkling a lot when confronted by those most plentiful of all sources of black humour, the daily newspaper and the television news, then this is the


book for you. Perhaps the truest test of its worth is the fact that it was read cover to cover by this reviewer; the last book to be so abused was one hundred pages long. However, as efficient as the foregoing book was for our purposes, we found it lacked one major criterion-it didn’t have no pictures. This drawback is not possessed by the second book which we wish to draw to your attention, the profusely illustrated Penguin Book of Comics. The latter tra,ces the development of this particular art (?> form frtim its beginnings in ancient Egypt (you’ve all seen, we’re sure, sequences of drawing (hieroglyph& on pyramids walls in any half-assed source on Egypt e.g. The Mummy starring Boris Karloff), through its early growth in Great Britain in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to its maturation in the U.S. OF A. commencing in the 20’s. It is all very nice and all very coinpetent from a historical standpoint, although the best parts are the actual comics (or rather, excerpts of comics which, in the case of serials, tend to leave you hanging. Admittedly, it becomes a drag sitting on the can each day reading one episode of a different serial. Again, speaking from an acknowledgedly limited perspective, we feel that our favourites from Stan Lee (Marvel, post early 60’s), have been badly and inadequately handled. Furthermore, underground commieix (as often seen in the Chevron) are covered in a one sentence reference to R. Crumb. We are distressed that this 1971 revised edition of the 19-67 original contains these deficiencies (another is the omission of Jack Kirby’s recent offerings for D.C., possibly the most visually spectacular of all comic books.) But, lest we be accused of negative thinking, let us merely say that we found both books (almost) compatible with our every purpose, and, after all, what more can one realistically ask? Hmmmmmmmmmmm? ,-james

The Red Fox. by BIII Howell, McClelland and Stewart. -7

Bill Howell is a Canadian poet from Halifax. His work has been seen in a number of Canadian magazines. As well as this, he joined the rostrum of block-busters in McClelland and Stewart’s Storm Warning (edited by Al Purdy ). The Red Fox is Howell’s firs_t book and in it he says: “There are three impossible themes to renderphysical love, physical pain and death. If you want to 4 find how good a poet is ldok at what he shows you about these. They’re all lashed to the study of the workings of the human heart which-is what writing is . all about.”

In “One Armed Man” Howell falters at the ending and has to piece one together. Met him at the Ferry Wharf, from his sinister eyes I saw he’d been to sea ,and left at least behind his only right arm: home for good now. from the Ranks now punching tickets for Dominion Atlantic in his left behind hand way. before the everybody question came from my gut to my mouth I heard the answer in his face: nothing’s in-a name, but his face, a fifty-bucks-a-week the hard way face, while his eyes sang with the bitter salt of the sea, breaking on its ocean motion moving rock, breaking on its own image.

Despite the fact that a lot of what Howell says here isn’t original (Faulkner said it in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech) at least he keeps his promise for the most part in the book. Unfortunately Howell’s greatest gift to the reader is a youthful freshness uncommon in much modern poetry. Freshness and Everytime I’m by I buy an adolescent romanticism don’t necessarily make my ticket from this man, good poetry.

Howell seems intrigued by these witty word twisters and uses them to a great extent or more precisely to no end. “Whether Report” makes me sick or close to it except for the last line which is a spark but sparks after the fires, soaked with ventriloquists, bubbling under glass, are quickly out.

Every year since, it has been the big seller in the big bike category. Why? There are bigger road bikes than the CB350. And there are faster road bikes. (Not a whole lot faster, mind you, but faster.) What, then, makes the CB350 so popular?, It all has to do with how little it costs. And how much you get. As well as its price, the Honda CB350 has a big advantage over bigger bikes. It’s smaller. Around town, ‘its highly maneuverable, compact chassis and its smooth and smokeless Honda 4-stroke engine let you take the tightest traffic in your stride.

Hcyerdahl went to Chad td find The Ra Expeditions has all the elements of a fine adventure filmmen against the sea in a fragile hurricanes and papyrus craft, even a few sharks. But the film, which just finished playing at the Fox, has neglected most of the scientific facts and that presumably controversy motivated Thor Heyerdahl and his crew to twice cross the Atlantic in ships made of papyrus. The film, a Swedish-Norwegian product, begins by comparing the pyramids to the sun in Peru, Mexico and Egypt and tries to link culturally the various people which built them. Another indication of a possible link between the Indians of Meso and South America and the Egyptians were the reed boats used by all of them. Unfortunately, the comparison is done in a superficial travelogue fashion. Heyerdahl is shown almost like a tourist climbing a pyramid in Mexico, exploring the burial tomb underneath, standing beside towering sculptures of gods. There iS little’ indication Of the scientific curiousity and commitment which led Heyerdahl to prove his theories first by Sailing the raft Kon-Tiki from Peru to Easter Island to show that the island was settled by people from South America.

A year later Heyerdahl tried again, this time bringing his boat builders from South America. Unfortunately, they constructed a ship slightly too small for the amount of cargo but even with this problem Heyerdahl and his international crew crossed the Atlantic safely, proving in Heyerdahl’s mind at least that trans-Atlantic contact was possible for the Egyptians.

become characters, because they’re pawns in the over-all scheme. The director doesn’t cut loose, either; he sacrifices the flow and spontaneity and the euphoria of spaciousness that have made him alegend-but not, the savagery. For the first time, he has left the West, and for the first time he has a statement to make. The film in constructed like a demonstration--a misanthropic one. Working from a script thathe wrote with David Z. Goodman, he carefully plants the prejudicial details that will later pay off; there are menacing closeups and more than one superfluous reaction shot. The preparations are not in themseives pleasurable; the atmosphere is ominous and oppressive, but you’re drawn in and you’re held, because you can feel that it is building purposefully. The setting is a Cornish village and a lonely farmhouse on the moors that the American mathematician-he has a grant to work on celestial navigation-and his English wife have moved into. The farmhouse is singularly uninviting; no objects have been placed to catch the light or give off a glow. The landscape is barren and alien-not exactly desolate but neutral. Peckinpah is famous for the love that makes his Western landscapes expressive, but no love informs this landscape with feeling. The townspeople, who are creepy enough for a horror thriller, include a collection of stud louts who jeer at Hoffman while they snigger and smack their lips over his wife’s braless sweaters. One look at her provocative walk and you know that her husband is in trouble-that he can’t handle her.

“Dustin Hoffman’s role might almost be a continuation of his Benjamin in ‘The Graduate.“’ The setting, the music, and the people are deliberately disquieting. It is a thriller,a machine headed for destruction. Hoffman, the victim of the villagers’ (and the director’s) contempt, is ,that stock figure of fun, the priggish, cowardly intellectual. It’s embarrassing that a man ‘of Peckinpah’s gifts should offer such stale antiintellectualism, but one can’t avoid the conclusion that Hoffman’s David is meant to be a symbolic “uncommitted” intellectual who is escaping the turmoil of America. “You left because you didn’t want to make a stand,” his wife taunts him, while we squirm and wish she didn’t represent the film’s point of view. Inevitably, David discovers that he can’t hide in his study, and that in the peaceful countryside nature is red in tooth and claw. The casting, however, is impeccabie. Hoffman notoriously a cerebral actor, projects thOUg& before movement; he’s already a lsartoon 01 aI l intellectual. There’s a split second of blank iiidecision,before the face lights up with purpose. He never looks as if he just naturally lived in the places he’s stuck into for the camera; he always seems slightly the outsider anyway, and his duck walk and

xRecycling ^




Conscience is the name of a project run by some students at Cameron Heights Collegiate in Ki tchener. This is an ironic name considering the fact that there are only seven students out of a grand total of 2,000 at the school, (four out of 100 teachers are helping the students ). The group, run by Jenny Feick, Liz Janke, and Larry McGill, students at the school, started in September and attempted to educate the other students about the cause by means of movies and presentations. This wasn’t too successful since the group finally had to move out of the school in October to find support. It is interesting that the institution that is supposed to provide education for the students doesn’t support 6 a creative project that the students devise themselves-a project which is a learning experience. In any case, the group has gone ahead, contacted Probe and worked up a list of 450 contributors from the K-W community, who let them come and pick up their glass and tin cans. These are taken from the homes to Spadina Road where they are stored until shipped away to the glassand tin can companies


to be recycled. \ Most of the people in the group ‘work every night. The students provide their own cars for hauling the stuff, spend hours crushing the refuse-by hand-without pay. This includes a heavy gas and maintenance cost for the cars. These people need help. They can’t go on working their asses off for ever and have been around the university hoping to find someone to spend time driving, lending car (or trucks 1, crushing (get rid of your frustrations) or anything else that someone might consider to be valuable for the recycling idea. So far the project has been a relative success considering there are a total of 11 people working on it. Money-wise, the group is hoping to get a 500 dollar grant from Probe and has raised some money with car washes. At Christmas, they took tossed out jewellry, cloth, etc. and made decorations out of them for sale. Conceivably, with a little help and money, this project could see depots established all over the twin cities. K-W would have a recycling system, something it ,needs but hasn’t gone into-it costs too much!

Waterloo tracksters took two top honors and ‘. two second place finishes in the Ontario senior championship in Toronto last ‘- weekend. I -_ Hurdlers George Neeland and Marlene Peters both had good’ times in the. 50 meter event but -placed second. George had his weekly difficulty ’ leaving the starting%!ocks on time and ran ‘a catch-up hurdle race as Brian Donnely tied Neeland’s Canadian record to win the event. Liz Damman of Kitchener was the winner inthe women’s version b with Waterloo’s Marlene Peters a stride behind as they crossed the finish, lineI \ j

Liz clocked 7.2. seconds to clip three-tenth off the existing cq national record. Peters at .7.2 seconds was also -well under the Canadian mark. The two top honors came in the horizontal jumping events as Bill Lindfey and Dennis McGann ~ controlled the pits: Lindley finished with a leap well over 46 feet to take first place in the triple having led the field from the first round of jumps. Until the final round of the-long jump, I’t looked like another second r place finish for the warriors as McCann trailed Axe1 Becke of i Queens in th-e event. On&is fifth jump,, -Becke put out _ a season-best effort of 22’2” to capture .the lead.

Faced with a final trial where he had to surpass Becke’s mark or settle for second place, McGann surged to a season best performance himself, clearing 23’5 *$’ to finish a foolahead of the-field. These four Waterloo track-kids will be winging their way to Quebec city two weeks hence for the national championships. . Today, Waterloo is slated to compete in the OUAA indoor championships to be held in Toronto. This is the first time in many weeks that the team will attempt to compete as a single unit: The event has not been ratified by the league and medals will not be awarded for the event. Again however, the top four schools will be represented by Waterloo, Western, Queens and Toronto. Organizer Andy Higgins ‘from the university of Toronto, recognizing the lack of a winning trophy, stated, ‘the winning te’am will be congratulated’. _ -

The UBC Thunderbirds lead the west to victory at the CIAU swimming and diving championships at Lava1 University last weekend. The western swimmers from UBC, Aberta, Calgary, Saskatchewan and Manitoba squeaked out a conference title by downing the OUAA 493% to 484Y2. Quebec was third with 473 while the Atlantic Association went home with 105 points. This was the first time the western conference has won the championships. The winning team in the 21 school competition was McGill University who knocked off Toronto for the first time in six years. The Redmen. tallied 367 points to Toronto’s 345. UBC was third with 269 and Alberta was a close fourth with 265. This CIAU championship meet was by far the best since its inception in 1965. Some 13 of 16 CIAU records were broken, another tied and five Canadian open records broken. The only records not to fall were the 100 yard butterfly and the 200 yard individual medley. The 50 yard freestyle was tied by Toronto’s Jim Adams in a fast 21.9.. This is the longest standing College record being on the books1 since 1967. Alberta’s Doug Jamieson won the 200 IM in a time of 2: 03.0 and also tied Bill Kennedy of Western

By far the biggest improvement or drops in time was made in the breaststroke events. Bill Mahoney won both events for UBC. In the 200 yard brasse, as its called, Mahoney went 2: 14.6, an incredible drop of 5.2 seconds off the CIAU record. On Saturday he came right back to take the 100 yard brasse in 1:02.2 or 1.5 seconds below last year’s mark. One of the best races of’ the meet was the 200’ yard ‘style libre’ or freestyle, won by McGill’s big little man, Dave Johnson who went 1:47.8, good enough to down Mike Guiness and Ralph Hutton of Calgary, both clocked in identical times of 1:48.8. Johnson took twotenths of a second off the college record. Mike Morrow of Alberta won the 400 individual medley going 4: 24.1 or some 2.9 seconds faster than last years time. McGill took two of the three team relay events which were all swum in Canadian record times.

McGill trips Toronto at Laval Nationals The 400 free relay was taken by the Redmen foursome in a fast 3: 14.8, for a new record, 1.7 seconds faster than a time. posted by a UBC squad _ earlier, this sea son. The medley relay was won by the Blues in 3:41.9 clipping off 2.5 seconds. McGill came back on the secon’d day to dominate the 800 free relay going a fast 7 122.1. The boards were again controlled by the prairie pair of Ron Friesen and Mike Boyd of Saskatchewan. Friesen won both the one and three metre boards. George Roy, Waterloo’s only competitor at the meet came away with a third place in the consolations in the 400 yard individual medley and a fourth place consolations in the 200 butterfly. When considering that it took the Ontario squad some twenty hours to get through to Quebec City, not arriving until 2am the day of the meet one can well imagine why some times were alittle off the best. Even so by the second day of competition most had recovered their strength and went all out, but for this year at least, the west is best.

OUAA results The Warriors came on strong when it counted this year at the OUAA championships at MC Master to place a solid third, their best ever showing in the league swimming finals. Lead by George Roy who won the in a good 18: 46.1 on the first da_y of competition, the winning momentum continued throughout the meet as the uniwat squad went on to pile up 267.5 points. Toronto was the mket winner walking home with 575 points and placing 13 swimmers on the conference team for the nationals. Western was second with 352 ‘points. 1650

Although there were no additional event winners there were some 70 new personal best performances and 7 new team records set by the uniwat squad. One of the best performances at the meet was by diver Lester Newby who placed fourth on both the one and three metre boards. Although Lester had a better combined total than Western’s diver Dave Rock, who placed sixth and third, Rock was chosen to go to the nationals. This was by far one of the biggest disappointments for the team, and of course Newby. In other swimming events on the first day, George Roy placed fourth in the 200 yard butterfly going 2: 07.3 while Paul Sharpe went 2:22.2. Earlier in the afternoon Paul went his best ever time of 2:21.5 In the finals of the 50 yard freestyle Bruce Murray was 11th going 24.1. Eric Robinson came home in 4th in the 200 backstroke going 2:O9.6, while Jim Low went 2: 14.6 in the finals, good for second in the consolations. Brian Bachert , who has been on co-op this term also came through well going 2:25.6 and 5th in the consolations.

On ihe second day of competition one of the best performances was by Eric Robinson in the 100 backstroke going 1:01.2 just outcouching Jim Low also .of Waterloo by a judges decision to win the consolation finals. Paul Sharpe placed sixth in the consolations of the 100 butterfly going a goo@ 1:01.8 while Brian Cartiledge placed in the same position in the 100 freestyle swimming in a good 55.0. Carl Brubaker missed _the finals and had to settle ‘for a second in the consolations going a 52.3. . In other highlights of the meet Rolfe McEwan tied the Warriors 500 freestyle mark held by George Roy by going 5 :2&O and good for 4th place in the finals. Karl Brubaker came sixth in a poor time of 5: 59.4 while Doug Munn placed third in the consolations in a good 5 :33.6. Dave Robinson was fifth in the consolations in 5: 35.4 In the 400 yard individual medley George Roy placed 4th in a time of 4: 55.6 while Eric Robinson was right behind in 5th spot in 4: 58.3. Doug Lorriman and Paul Sharpe were in the same positions but in the consolation finals. In Saturday’s relay events Toron to again dominated winning the 400 medley and 800 free relays. The Warriors fotlr tankmen Robinson, Munn, Sharpe and Lorriman were fifth in the finals in a time of 4: 03.6 while the 800 yard foursome of McEwan Murray, Brubaker and Robinson was third in a fast 7:54.2. The outstanding swimmers at the championships this year were George Roy, Eric Robinson and Doug Munn ‘to name a few.

for awards

The annual recognition night for this university’s athletes has been set for Tuesday, March 21 with a new format. The stiff-collar, sitdown affair has been abandoned in favour of a blue-jeaned, relaxed atmosphere. In former years, the endless procession to the front of a massive hall with people uncomfortably enduring the activities has proven too much of a downer for the attendees., In an attempt to bring the function bloser to the people,, the great hall of village two has been chosen as the site, and recognizing the financial status of students this time of year, the athletic department decided to remove admission cost. As more students become involved in the varsity program, there has been an increase in the number of intercollegiate teams (now numbering eighteen) and in turn, those eligible for awards.-Of the five female categories of point winners (based on ,participation) only four will be personally awarded their goodies. The male award-winners will begin the procession to the’ presentator only after having achieved a beer-mug for three years of active participation or beyond. The other awards will be presented ‘en masse’. The recorded sounds of ‘whiplash’ will provide the jiving music for interested persons along with a liquid-refreshment-stand (of the inebriating variety). When the quantity of awards presented are viewed, there seems to be a decrease in total number

because of the imposition of stricter standards on the issuing. Top awards for male participants take the role of an honor plaque for athletes in their graduating year who have competed on intercollegiate teams every year while at uniwat. ’ The football squad seems to be the one losing the most number of players. Rick Wiedenhoeft, Chuck Wakefiedld, both Cheevers and John Buda will be lost to the team through graduation. The basketball squad only sees top-scorer Jaan Laaniste taking to the road. The OUAA championwrestlers will be back intact next year, while the track squad loses two in the persons of Terry Wilson and Dennis McGann. Hockey , swimming and curling will also see two of their numbers reduced due to graduation. Golf and swimming, as with basketball will only lose one athlete. As usual’, most teams in the men’s circuit and two women’s squads have voted their most valuable players and these will be announced and recognized at the annual get-together. Two athletes, one of each sex, will receive the top award (‘individually) of the evening for outstanding contribution to the athletic program. The event will be open and free to all university students members of the university community, and begins with the hour-and-a-half presentations at 7 : 30 pee em, immediately followed by the serious business of getting into what the evening is all about, sometime around nine.







On.- ca’mpus sport

ClilTl~XeSmmmm St. Jeromes once twice Withing 24 hours St. Jeromes had become king.....and queen on the volley ball courts. In the men’s tournament they smashed all comers to win the crown on Wednesday, March 1st. On thursday, March 2nd in the toed tournament, they teamed up with the ladies from Notre Dame and man and woman handled their way through 5 undefeated 2-out-of three matches. In the semi’s they squashed the Chinese Student A team 15-8,15-g and then matched up against St. Jeromes Y team 15-10, 15-8. In the overall championship against the consolation champion Rob’s robbers it was no contest. In the first game, the spiking of Showron and Zuwerkalo stunned the Robbers, while in the second, thieved their way to respectability. Final score 15-5, 15-10.

Village ~west floors co-op

It finally happened. The impregnable defending champions ‘for two years of undefeated play, coop residences were beaten 5-4 in overtime. Until the semi-finals coop had not lost a game in two years of competitive play, amassing a record of 23 wins, 1 tie-no losses. There is no current team in any activity that can match coop’s efforts. Although they were beaten, and now will not play the arch-rival mucket farmers in the final, consolation can be made in that they are a fine team with a probably unmatched record in floor hockey play. In the quarter finals, village west defeated lower math 3-2 in overtime on a goal by Tom Butt at the5 minute mark. In the second game, the mucket farmers coasted to a 5-2 win over St. Jeromes while coop whipped lower eng. 3-1. In the final game, the grads had their troubles with Renison, posting a 5-2 win. In the semi’s, putting village west vs. coop. Flinn of coop scored his first’ of a hat trick with Butt retaliating for west to l-l tie at the half. At the final whistle score was again tied 414. In the close-checking overtime period, Maruzzo of west at the 3 :37 mark popped in a rebound to upset the highly favoured coop team. In the other semi/final between grads and farmers, the end result was open. The, grads had defeated them earlier in league play 5-4. There was high anticipation that the game would be a classic. At half time, score was deadlocked 3-3 on grad goals by Finden, Probert and Jackson with Latimer, Patterson and Snyder retaliating for the farmers. In the last half, the farmers ploughed the grads under with 3 unanswered goals-2 by Rogers and one by Latimer. Final score 6-3 for the farmers. 7:00-9:00 pm the Last night from championship between the farmers and village west was staged. Defending



After the preliminary playoff round when all expected teams advanced to the quarter finals, the pressure was on. The defending champions lower math appeared easy shoe-ins for the semi’s against third place village south, while powerful St. Jerome’s and undefeated village 2-NW were confident of victory. The dark horse coop math A was expected to be handled by phys ed and rec. However, as tradition will have it, there are no certainties in intramural play. In series E, St. Jeromes polluted env. studies 54-35 and then everything else went slightly awry. Arts, 3rd place finishers in lower faculty, manhandled village 2-NW 36-23 on some outstanding plays by Dave Hollinger. Coop math A jocked the jocks 47-30, while a spirited village south 5 upset the defending champions lower math 44-42. With all the brilliant predictions now in the garbage, the stage was set for some interesting semi’s. On monday, St. Jeromes utilized their power, speed and accurate shooting to down a fighting crew from arts 50-31. In the other semi-finals the dark horse came to life and edged village south in a close sea-saw game 44-42. Final game for Condon cup was wednesday evening putting St. Jeromes vs coop math A. The latter team is the only team to defeat St. Jeromes in league play. Predictions anyone?

The on-campus all-stars upset the offcampus all-stars 4-3 last Tuesday-evening.

Guelph trip The intramural champions in hockey (upper Math), volleyball (St. Jeromes), and basketball will be venturing to Guelph on Sunday, March 26th to challenge respective teams from McMaster, Lutheran and Guelph.

Math retains crown Although upper Math was not predicted to get past the semi finals, their superb playoff play was the finest in intramural hockey. After squeaking into the playoffs by tying Phys Ed & Ret 2-2 with a record of 4 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie, no one thought they could defeat the powers of upper Eng and Arts. In quarter final play, they ousted a fine village 2-SE crew 4-3 to advance to the semi’s vs Arts. Arts had a record of 5 wins, 1 tie and were favoured. Within 13 minutes of the first period, upper Math 4-Arts 0. Unable to recover, Arts were inept in the second, allowing Math to add 3 more to their total. Final score 7-O. In the other semi finals with upper Eng vs the surprising St. Pauls team it appeared in the opening minutes like upper Eng would run away potted in an early 2-O lead. However, the spirit of the colleges came back with the first goal late in the game, a screen shot tied the score 2-2.

Fifty-one competitors staged the finest exhibition ‘of excellent table tennis ever seen on campus on Tuesday evening: with the 12 top seeds including the top fourLarry Lee of Grads; Beng-Sit Lim of grads; F. Chan of upper Math; and Fred Slater of upper Math the competition was bound to be superb.

Wang of Science 11-21, 21-15, 12. Jones of village south outlasted Fok of St. Jeromes 21-19,16-21, 21-13. In the final, -Wang defeated Jones 21-10, 10.

Lim was a little nervous in the first two games losing 21-8, 10. In the third, Lim played superbly to upset Lee in overtime 22-20. In the fourth game Lee showed his superiority and crushed Lim 21-6 to win 3/5 games. Everyone who watched the play agreed the calibre was high.

Into Overtime:

Engineers had never lost an overtime game. Within 3 minutes the final score was 3-2 for the engineers. So the rematch of the century. Defending champions, upper Math against the only team to beat them in league play, upper Eng 3-l. The game was really no contest from the outset as upper Math outskated, outshot and simply outplayed the Engineers. The game was highlighted by some excellent playing by Rod Madily who continually harassed and outskated everyone. His play making ability enabled his line mate Pat Fallon to get a hat trick for the evening. FPnal surprising score 7-l. In a losing note, there are many members of the engineering team who have played their final game. Gord Campbell has played goal for them for 4 years and has been outstanding. Ziggy Musial has coached them to an impressive record. To all of them good luck in the future. Basketball

jocks hats The Rugger Club held its annual general meeting last monday night in the City Hotel. The meeting was called to order and the minutes of the last meeting Were read. The minutes noted that during the last meeting Scott Simpson had excused himself and gone to the back of the room where he had made a strange tinkling sound. It was noted by all that he did not wash his hands after. A name was decided on for the second team. In the past it has been known as simply the second team and this had led to a certain disregard for the team. But from this day forth it will be the University of Waterloo Trojans. The possibility of a junior varsity league wa_s mentioned. The Trojans would playin this league if it came about. Elections were held for next Dave Saunders L. year’s executive. was elected president by acclamation, Dave Cunningham elected vice-president, Scott Simpson secretary-treasurer by acclamation, and Keith Knapp Social Committee Chairman. The Rugger Club would like anybody who is interested in playing with the team next fall to leave summer address and phone number with Scott Simpson at 8840622. Travelling to the CIAU swimming nationals in Quebec City was more of a nightmare than a pleasure excursion for competitors this year. The Ontario conference squad met at Toronto airport at 7:45 am were fed brunch at 11 am on the plane then the captain informed us that ice was forming on the wings and without sunlight we werent ’ going anywhere. Oh well we really didn’t want to go anyway. Finally at 2 pm we screamed off the runway climbed to l7,OOO feet and shot down to Montreal in 39 minutes. Usually it takes an hour plus but at 700 mph anything’s possible even doing straffing runs all over southern Ontario. By this time we had the Saskatchewan threesome but at Dorval the Newfoundland ” squad flipped in out of the fog and sleet. By now no planes were leaving for Quebec City so we hopped a bus then a train, which took US to the Quebec country side an hour and a half late. Two stations out at \ Westmount who do you suppose is standing on the platform, but the UBC team. Amazing-they almost looked lost. At 2 am we made it to Quebec City and after a short wait took a thrilling bobsled ride in a taxi through the streets at 50 mph. The town had just been blanketed by 11 inches of snow, only one lane open, glare ice, but we didn’t know the french word to slow down. The sports’quote of the year has to go to Ted Reynolds who said, after we smashed through a four foot bank of snow (and kept going) at 50 mph, “not bad, not bad 78 metres on a 70 metre jump.” At any rate.after getting lost and going up down ramps and down up ramps the so called ! ! &&? ? driver dropped us off in a snow bank and told us to walk. Eventually we found our motel. The Chevron advice of the week has to be, if you really want to use up your one life take a taxi ride in Quebec City, if you can find one. Drips

Western’s swimmers took 28 hours to get to Quebec City and got stuck on a ferry boat in the St. 1 Lawrence. UNB’s crew were on the road two days and arrived in time for the evening finals. Amazing, just amazing.

Varsity Arena will be the site of the ‘72 OUAA hockey playoffs this year. The games will go today and tomorrow. First matches at 6 pm. The Warriors won’t be there but fans of Toronto, York, Laurentian, Ottawa, Western, Guelph, MCMaster-and Windsor will be happy. Consolation awards was the order of the day for OUAA teams as groups from our conference took the minor awards in national \ finals. In basketball, the University of British Columbia thunderbirds took the crow-n from the Axemen of Acadia 87-80 in Vancouver on Saturday. The upstart Windsor lancers who took our warriors, went down to a 117-84 loss in an encounter with the eventual UBC champions. The lancers, however came back to take McGill 87-83 and the consolation final. To complete their hoop sweep, the UBC thunderettes scored 79 points to 69 for the university of New Brunswick red bloomers. Again the OUAA took the consolation as the gals from western won over the Bishop’s university gatorettes 54-42. The university of western Ontario finally put the OUAA on top however, with the women grabbing the national topspot in volleyball. 15-7,14-16,15-11 and 15-4 were the scores as the girls took Dalhousie after an undefeated tournament record in Sudbury on Saturday. This represents the second time the volleyball championships have been held and the first victory for an eastern squad.


A Money Saving Message To The Student

The CIAU championships will be hosted in Sherbrooke. The Olympic torch has flickered into darkness as the 1972 world student games ended in Lake Placid New York last week. As expected, the Russians came away with the largest piece of the booty with 14 gold medals, 10 silvers and six bronze. The U.S. was second in the medal race with three of each gold and silver as well as seven bronze. Canada could only manage one gold and a silver. This nation’s silver medal came in the three-team hockey corn- * petition as they ended with a 3-21 record while the USSR dominated the event with a 4-O-l. The U.S. could not come up with a single . win. In the final hockey game (of no consequence>, the Canadians tromped the yanks 8-l to present the winless wonders their fifth defeat. March 22nd is the deadline date for athletes applying for grants-inaid from the department of national health and welfare. Individual grants will have a value of up to $2,000 for university students. The grants originated with the concept that athletes deciding to at tend Canadian institutions missed out on the financial aid U.S. scholarships offered. Names of recipients will be announced by May 1st. Last year at least five Waterloo athletes received the grants which are limited to sports outside hockey. In that sport, hockeyCanada issues their own studentaid.

‘- . ‘Waterba’bies Tubing-Manual’ -- \L , -’ \

Once in the tube, thelower back should be resting, on the tube’ proper somewhere around the fourth or fifth lumbar vertebrae.The legs dangle over the other side of the tube {with the- middle hamstring ’ muscles in contact with the tube. The tricep surae also gently rests on the tube. During cold-water action, small discreet releaseof inner pressures (through flatulence) keeps the dangling buttocks warm and prevents cramps in the medial aspect of the gluteus maximus. Uncouth players sometimes try other ways of keeping warm, but in those cases a simple-rule-of-thumb is “never tube close to a participant surrounded by , yellow water”. ’ Indoor tubing should see these warming methods k.ept to a minimum, but when the I game is played on the. open seas, everythinggoes.










With athletics rapidly coming to an end for another season, one sport deserves honorable mention and possibly avote as ‘sport-of-the-yea?. The activity, of course, -is inner-tube ‘waterpolo. ~ After a slow start on the Waterloo campus last fall, the game has caught the attention of. all fun-loving-types. Every Wednesday, the jock natatorium pooi is full of inner-tubes with a lot of weird people paddling around on the, water in search of a single, e,lusive ball. The game is very similar to the standard variety of waterpolo except swimming skill is not a prerequisite and participants are ha-mpered in the rapidity of their movements by a big, black innertube. As is the case with many-activities, the game began in California but quickly spread to Canada. McMaster univesity has a full.;fledged league ,in the sport and it is enjoying avid participationInitially at Mat, the most effective defensive manoeuver was to deflate the opponents tube with a hidden ‘pin, but thatsoon became illegal as the intramural departmt spent half their. ‘waking hours repairing tubes. At the univesity of Waterloo, there are usually fiftyor so participants on Wednesday - night, which is “waterpolo evening” to the involved. ’ Unlike it’s count,erpart-sports like basketball and volleyball, innertube waterpolo is a new and. vibrant activity with no set rules and plays which make the game tedious and frustrating to the uninitiated. In inner-tubing, the participants get into a tube (itself a weird experience) and attempt to get their hands on a ball by paddling around with flailing feet. in a frenzy of churned water.

ON, MOU-NTIN-G +-tiE TUBE \ 1. -,I_ The actual ‘mounting’ of the tube requires very little skill, but a certain traditional method must be followed to keep in the style of the game. Initially, one does not refer to this action as ‘getting in the tube’ because of the implication the term implies. ‘Mounting’ is the terminology used worldwide. The tube is swished around in the water to ensure that it is lubricated and does not chafe the skin. Thencthe body parts which will be in direct contact with the tube are also lubricated (using the water from the pool, .of course). The ‘doughnut’” -(as the tube is _ sometimescalled by experienced tubers) is placed five’ to six feet away from the‘ edge of the pool-deck,(or ‘ramp’ in outdoor play) and the participant takes a \

frying. ‘yah-po’ leap into the tube-hole. Again tradition plays a role here,. ‘yah-oo’ is the necessary shout before leaving the deck or ramp: With .a flying, screaming jump,the legs are raised upward leaving the lower back and buttocks pointing downward for proper insertion. For beginning females, , a more conservative approach may be used. The tube is @aced in the w-aterand a ma\le assistant places his hand under, and ,boosts the feminine participant into the hole. A small thrill is usually experienced by- both but the cold temperatures and, the rapidity of action limits the elatcon to one or two seconds.

excitement of tubing shows on the faces of these to thei; utmost for the ball.

two competitors,


Early practice at a target usually uses the inner hole of an empty tube. After holding and ‘palming’ the ball, it is suddenly and forcefully directed by a rapid (and coincident) contraction of the tricep and pectoralis muscles which sends the slippery sphere toward the target. The practice of this aspect of “balling” (as it is called by the more experienced tubers) shows anatomically by a increase in the musculature of the most used areas. As tubers gain skill and accuracy in the use of the arms in ‘balling’, the back and pelvis muscles are incorporated into the action. At the point of release from the hand, a rapid arching of the back and forward tilt of the pelvis produces the necessary power to propel the ball toward the target. Veteran tubers- have stated that the carry-over value of tubing into other aspects of. life is more pronounced in those able to achieve a good ball release. Moving, while palming the ball, provides a still more intricate problem to potential tubers. The ball is placed,,in the lap of the tuber while he/she streaks down the waterline. Tubing along with the ball being palmed above the head is a much more desirable and difficult chore, other players then are assured that you have it.

Since innertube water-poloing is still a sport in its infancy, sophisitication of tactics and play-making remains in a fetal stage of development. There is one area of play, however, which has received a great deal of atttention from coaches, players and ecstatic gallery-rats alike, and that is the action known generally as “ducking”. Not to be confused with the more docile and harmless action known as “dunking’‘-though many Waterbabies, having inadequate vocabularies at best, have mistaken the two terms in the past_ “ducking” is a highly-evolved method of removing an aversive stimulus from one’s game plan-namely, an opposing player. “Ducking” is much akin to its brothertactics in other sports, such as the “downfield cr&ss-block” in football, the “screen” in basketball or the ever-’ popular “boarding” in hockey. The play itself (to get right to the i fundamentals ) usually involves moving in on the blind side of a defender as silently as possible. This is often facilitated by use of a signal to a teammate who distracts the’aversive opponent often by using the base allurement of his/her body.’ The desired position having been atttained, one places his her hand carefully but firmly on the rim of the opponents’ tube; the other hand is then brought forward to encircle his her arm or shoulder, in order to render countermeasures as ineffective as possible, and pressure is exerted downwards quickly with both arms. There is a less-often-used “underwater” method, in which the player reaces underneath the opponent’s tube, grabs the ankles, and pulls quickly backward, using the centrifugal motion of the tube to place the opponent in the “ass-tothe-sky” position. But this tactic is generally scorned by veteran Waterbabies, being considered “bush”, and not worthy of the excellence of Waterbaby play. These have been just a few of the fundamentals of Waterbaby innertu bewaterpoloing. We expect this sport to catch on fast across the nation and the world, and the world-famous champion Waterbabies are always anxious to push the sport and to help anyone interested in furthering their own innertube career. Questions about the niceities of the game and about your favorite Waterbaby may be addressed to : Jaque Strappe, Waterbaby Captain, Chevron Office. More detailed information concerning the game and the men and women who play it will follow in future chevron sports pages, god willing.

BALL HANDLING One of the most1 important skills requiring hours of practice in or out of the tube is proper handling of the ball. In the chapter on ‘Ball skill acquisition’ the Waterbabies outline the necessary steps leading up to proficiency in the area. The wet environment of the game often results in slippery balls, so beginners are allowed to handle the object with both hands. As skill improves, many other ‘catch and throw’ techniques can be incorporated. The beginning ball-handler reaches out with both hands (and eyes) wide open. In this eary stage the legs, unlike the hands and eyes, are kept closed. ’ Anticipation of ball position is often misjudged in the skill acquisition stage but later in the learning sequence, extubers readily anticipate the . perienced ball position and eagerly descend on the target. Because of what seems to be a physiological unawareness, females in tubing leagues, are still allowed ‘to use both hands. Locating and latching onto the ball, however is only the first step in the mastering of this complex skill. Once the ball is in the hand, it must be workedaround to ensure non-slippage then a target is chosen to direct the object.

We have recently heard from Mr. Nixon about his plan to withdraw american troops from Vietnam. Our newspapers point out that these forces are only being removed to Thailand and thus Vietnam will still be subject to attack from the air and sea, and the people will continue to live in constant danger. . Everyone knows that Vietnam is being reduced to a wasteland, the soil and rivers are being chemically poisoned. It will take decades for them to become productive again, if ever. The same defoliant. which have caused the collapse of Vietnamese ecology are also responsible for the increase in birth defects. People want to help end this horror and would be prepared to make regular donations. However, confidence is sometimes lacking that hard earned dollars will reach the given destination, and contributions are reluctantly withheld. Collec te Vietnam therefore has been set up with this purpose in mind, to guarantee that every dollar collected will be forwarded by international money order directly to Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the minister of foreign afthe provisional fairs of revolutionary government of South Vietnam, at her personal address in Paris.

consider further. Suppose instead of the 315 dollar lump sum, the student paid 1.50 dollars admittance fee for each %&minute lecture. (Mind you, we realize the impossibility of this). The repeated agony of pocketbook depletion could develop in the student a greater awareness of whether or not he was getting his money’s worth, could result in a more -attentive attitude. After all, would you pay to go to a show and then sit in the can all night?

The other day in a class, some of us came to a conclusion not new to the world but though-provoking all the same. Said conclusion is-If a student pays 315 dollars tuition fees for a four month term and has seventeen SO-minute lectures per week for thirteen weeks, then, theoretically, he pays approximately 3 cents per minute of lecture or 1.50 dollars for a fiftyminute dose. This may not astound, but


A stronger demand’ from the taught on the teacher would be evident. That is, if a prof couldn’t communicate, didn’t care, or in some other way failed to produce the equivalent of 1.50 dollar in lecture value, he would find himself with very little on the “collection plate”. Students would go where they could get more for their money.

Ever wonder why we don’t all speak like a BBC announcer? The answer was given by linguist N. Hultin in his discussion of “Canadian English” with students in Canadian studies on monday . According to “the contamination theory”, our pure and virgin speech was debased by-you guessed it-those Americans. Hutlin claims, however, that we did it all ourselves. Early Canada was not settled by the English aristocracy, but by Irish, Welsh and Scats, who came here with farmers from the north of England. During the last 200 years, the resulting mixture has given us our own way of speaking.

you turn in a pusher?

Orwell would turn in his grave...... by Gord Moore

the chevron London’s Tip in a Pusher (TIP) program is raising the controversy it deserves. Through increased discussion more and more citizens are becoming aware of the irrational and ineffective solutions attempted to deal with the drug problem in Canada. A group of private citizens, headed by Colin Brown (a director of the London Life Insurance Co.), with the cooperation of the RCMP, the OPP and the London City Police are offering rewards up to 500 dollars for anonymous information leading to the conviction of “hard drug pushers”. Informers phone 472-DRUG, are given a code name, ,and are told to watch the newspapers for the arrest and conviction of the pushers they called about. Once the conviction is confirmed, arrangements are made to make the payment. As Colin Brown quaintly put it when he announced the scheme, the supporters will “pu’t it under a stone if he wants.” The program was originally started in Tampa, Florida about a year ago by former FBI agent James Cusack. At the time, Cusack was also chairman of the Tampa cha,mber ofcommerce’s drug abuse task force. So far TIP has resulted in 44 arrests and 12 persons being charged for up to ten years; all of this out of 5,500 calls to TIP headquarters. The TIP program is actually one part of a threepronged attack on drug abuse in Tampa. Education and rehabilitation are the other two parts. So far thirty-five cities have also taken up programs like TIP. The Atlanta, Georgia program offers rewards up to 10,000 dollars for fruitful leads.

The-story in London ) On february 24 the TIP program was first advertised in the London Free Press. Since then it has produced a lot of discussion, served to create hysteria and polarize opinion on what is already a very sensitive social issue. Backers of TIP hope to rid London of drug pushers dealing in hard drugs. Opponents of TIP insist that it will

Moratorium by Dudley Paul

the chevron / \

For several weeks now, Doug Lord and Bob Smith of the Student’s Representative Assembly’ (S.R.A.), the student government at McMaster, have been working on publicizing the moratorium on classes and teach-in for the Wright Commission draft report on post secondary education. The one day moratorium, on Wednesday followed two days during which some discussions were held on various aspects of the report and was to have been the crowning touch on the three day affa,ir. After a fair amount of hassle with the reluctant Mat adj ministration, to get the day off classes, only about 600 students showed up to the morning session of the day-long teach-in and that number dwindled for the workshops held in the afternoon. Judging by the panel discussion of tuesday night, to which maybe40 people showed up, the support for the moratorium day itself was not too impressive. This is not to say that there was an abscence of authority at the teach-in. This is an interesting turn-out in view of the fact that only this year, the grads at Mat went on strike to protest the increased tuition fees and lack of grants offered in the report’s recbmmendations to that level of education. McMaster people consider themselves forerunners in the prdtest to the Wright Report. Chairman of the commission, Douglas Wright brought with him, Reva Gerstein, co-worker on the report, to the morning session of the Wednesday teach-in. With him, on the oanel sat studeht and faculty members of Mat, U. of Toronto and Mohawk College. Wright spoke first and issued an invitation to anyone to offer submissions to the commission but added that while his people were interested in any new ideas, he wanted alternatives not purely critical information. His commission needs something concrete to piace in their final report that it will send to the legislature later in the year. Wright went on to say




alienate young drug users from .established anti-drug agencies by creating an atmosphere of suspicion. They also say there is no evidence that TIP will reduce the number of pushers. . At least three of the program’s early supporters have withdrawn their support. Reverend George Goth, acting mayor Jane Bigelow and Robert Stickman, presidentelect of the University of Western Ontario’s student council, withdrew their support because they believe that valid criticisms of the program have been raised. Dr. Goth has said that, “This type of spying for pay started in Nazi Germany.” In a joint news release, Mrs. Bigelow and Stickman said that citizens should not have to be “bribed” to report incidents of a criminal nature, and that under the law “such persons might be regarded as accessories to the commission of crime if they do not report.”

Potential effects London’s TIP program was designed mainly to combat heroin pushers. Through RCMP investigation it has been determined that there are about 20 heroin pushers and 100 addicts in London. However,, pushers of soft drugs like marijuana have also come under target. ,Valid objections have been raised about the program and its potential effects. For instance, what is done \h;ith information collected on “suspected” pushers or addicts? The RCMP and city police are not likely to discard any information on drug users. Routine investigation, usually taking the form of surveillance, questioning and possibly phone tapping, can cause irremedial harm to an innocent citizen. Colin Brown says if you don’t like TIP, ignore it and it will go away. That kind.of thinking gives you an indication of what ydu are up against. The program already is alienating a segment of the ,community. Its polarization of opinion is dividing the London community along the lines of children and their parents. Any trust built up by social workers in drug treatment centres’is also under jeopardy. Treatment and research specialists, such as Dr. Mario Faveri, chairman of the London board of education’s task force on drug abuse,

and Wright


that the social conditiox which affected the report were broader than the university experience and that the people must address themselves to that fact. Criticism from one point was aimed at that part of the report which suggests that all universities be brought under the authority of a central co-ordinating board made up of student, faculty and laygroups. Professor McKiver of the Mat Senate criticized the report \for politicizing education in this way. Though he agreed that university must be accountable to the public for its actions and policies, he said that the question was how it was to be done. A central body exercising “uniform bureaucratic controls” would stifle the educational system in the university-the retention of independance being highly unlikely. McKiver went on to say that the report did not touch on such integral items as the appropriate - number of Students in the system and the quality of education that should be offered in Ontario’s post secondary instititions.

and Dr. Charles Aharan of the Addiction Research Foundation, have spoken out against the program’s effects. Dr. Aharan said that TIP acts against the symptom of social disease rather than the disease itself. Treatment specialists were not consulted before‘ TIP started. Another result might see pushers turning in their competition. This may open up the market for a shqrt period of time, until busted pushers are replaced by new ones. Drug prices will uhdoubtedly go up. Instead of stealing 30 dollars a day, the heroin addict will have to come up with 40 or 50 dollars to support his‘habit.So we can expect an increase in thefts of TV sets, radios, watches, and so on. Violence between pushers can also be expected. Users might blackmail pushers for reduc,ed prices, again escalating the chance of violence by one party.

The hunts are on The problem in London Ts not as grave as many people would seem to think. According to a sociology department survey at Western, a majority of Western students have never tried even smoking marijuana, and don’t intend to. Through the creation of wild, unnecessary fears, a tiny, prominent and paranoid group of people will have every kid withxlong hair looked at with suspicion. Does that one look like a pusher to you, Mildred? How about that tired looking “hippie” with his sleeves rolled down? Should the rewards get high enough, maybe your little sister would be willing to turn you in. Do we want to establish an openly supported program of encouraging people to identify fellow citizens guilty of “unacceptable activities” in this country? Do we wish to enter an era of witch-hunts in which the lives of innocent people will be ruined ? Should program supporters become more serious in their convictions, as in Atlanta, Georgia, and succeed in elevating the problem to greater “priority”, due to media-induced social concern, this may well happen. Did I hear you say, “It can’t happen here?” If so, think it over again.

teach - in at Mat

Professor Hanley of U. of T.; argued in- a similar vein but from an apparently different motivation. He fears that the senate will lose control over the decision making in the universities. He argued that the creation of a co-ordinating board would cause an over-kill of such decision making power of the separate institutions, adding that the boards would gain a great deal of their power through their right to control grants and student awards. He said that with an increase in student fees with the recommendations of the Wright report, students would have increased influence over the type of programmes the faculty of the universities could offer. Brett Smiley, an educational field worker for the student body at university of Toronto said that there has been a crisis in student unionism shown by the report. People affected by it have fallen into the trap of accepting the commission’s logic in their approach to the content of the report, rather than recognizing the fact that the students are a social group with special interestssocial and economic.

Smiley maintained that the report erected an ideological structure which sounded t-adical and hit at all the right issues. However, when it came down to the concrete proposals, the report was entirely different. In the case of the commission’s desire to increase public accessibility he pointed out that it allows people to go in to debt for up to fifteen years after they have this accessability. Regarding the idea of public accountability, Smiley commented that all that was happening was a shift from elitism in the universities to elitism in Queen’s Park. The report, he said, was on the side of the working’ classes but didn’t consider the students to be part of that group when many students are in just that position. Smiley urged that the students say no to the adverse proposals of the report, move for real democratization. He added that the student should be considered as an apprentice in whatever field he is studying and receive money for what he does. Also, tuition fees should be done away with, the money for the replacement of which could come perhaps from the grant pool which the Ontario uses to allocat funds for business. There was a great deal said about fees, those hitting closer to home than anything else. Bert Reamer, a grad student at Mat claimed that the $1500 graduate tuition fee proposed in the report was arbitrary considering the degree of contact that the average grad has with his professors. He added that if the student was forced to pay 50 per cent of the cost of tuition, participation of the central co-ordinatihg boards should be made up of 50 per cent students. Out of the day long teach-in is to come a brief to be submitted to the commission suggesting various changes that should be made of the end report. As one person commented, the commission has worked for two years and spent $1.3 million on it. This can not be discounted when considering how much change it will make in accordance to wishes of any group.

\ More student freedom through\ credit svstem J

ecently several proposals have come before administrative bodies at the university of Waterloo which, if instituted, will affect the freedom of students. These proposals concern the possibilities of admitting some credit courses, as opposed to graded courses, towards an arts degree, and a requirement that arts students take three full courses having significant Canadian content. I The interests of students are best served b,y movements towards greater freedom for individuals. The draft report of the commission on post-secondary education in Ontario points out the need for the humanization of education, in order to “preserve and cherish the fragile,, exquisite, special animal of this earth we call man.” In its suggested objectives for postsecondary education the report states, “if the individual is at the centre, he must have the opportunity and the responsibility to decide what educational experience is best for him. The’ whole spectrum of educational services must be available to him, not just a degree program, a certification process, or what the Institution thinks may benefit him. It is surely a matter for the individual to decide what is’ best for him. The whole spectrum of educational services must be available to him, not just a degree program, a certification process, or what the institution thinks may benefit him. It is surely a matter for the individual to decide what is ‘best’ for him.” Un’ doubtedly, individuals gain more by something when they seek it out by themselves and for themselves. The gains are not the same when something is thrust upon them. The principle of freedom for the student to chose what he will take applies very directly to the alterations that some departments, such as psychology, are making in their programme requirements. Already most of the departments insist that a large proportion of the courses their students take be chosen from a restricted range, with some courses being specifically required. The arts faculty also requires that some courses be taken in both humanities and social sciences, plus a language credit. Underlying these requirements there seems to be the assumption that a good education in a particular area is dependent upon the acquisition of credit in several courses. But within the departments, and between universities, I feel there is considerable disagreement about which courses the “essential” ones are. I think that most departments will admit that many _ different combinations of courses would constitute reasonable requirements for degrees in that area of study.


In addition to the requirements which already exist is the possibility of the additional requirement of three full courses with Canadian content. This has been recommended by professor Ronald Lambert to the undergraduate council. If departments feel that the Canadian situation has particular relevance in some area, of course they should emphasize it in those courses already existing. To force all students to take courses, undoubtedly in many cases contrived to be “Canadian”, to enable students to fullfill the requirement, even though the Canadian situation has no particular relevance to the situation, lwould be an undesirable and unnecessary restriction of the student’s freedom. The development of responsibility in people can only occur when people are forced to.make their own decisions, rather than accepting the decision of someone else.made for them. A first step would be to reduce, or eliminate, rather than increase the number of required courses. Some people fear that if students’are given freedom to select all of their own courses they might confine themselves too narrowly to one area, without exposing “themselves to other areas where they might make better use of their talents. The faculty. should take it upon themselves to advise students about other areas that might be interesting or useful to them, or point out to their classes how their area is related to several other areas. But the ultimate responsibility should rest with the student, who is best able to determine what kind of educational experience will be really most beneficial to him. Another inducement’ to students to voluntarily expand their horizons would

be the institution of credit courses. This change would also be in line with the objectives of the committee on postsecondary education in Ontario. It says, “The various tests and examinations, the buildings, the programs, and the teaching methods-indeed, all facets of the postsecondary educational system-should be oriented towards serving individual students rather than the institut,ions themselves, future employers, or the professions. Tests, examinations, and admission requirements, for example should be devised to help the student evaluate himself and to facilitate his learning; other purposes should always be secondary. We must never forget that the basic purpose of education is learning; that learning cannot but be, ultimately, a highly individual matter.” In a true credit system, students would be awarded credit in every course in which they achieved satisfactory standing. There would be no grades attached to that credit, and no failure if they did not pass. The extrinsic incentive to “learning”, the high grade, would be removed. This is desirable because often the grade does not really reflect what has been learned. Often the time and energy devoted to the achievement of grades is taken from time and energy that could be used for real, meaningful learning. In his chapter on the grading system in “The Student as Nigger”, Jerry Farber says : “Grades don’t make us want to enrich our minds; they make us want to please our teachers (or at least put them on). Grades are a game. Who reads his textbooks after the grades are in? What’s the point? It doesn’t go on your score.”

The removal of the grade system would also remove professors from their authority figure role-from the position. of being the .authority who can make or break you with the grade he assigns you. The credit system would put students and teachers on more equal levels. The authority role of the professor is an impediment to real communication. With more open communication between professors and students, with students unafraid of expressing their misunderstandings, misgivings and disagreements, more learning can occur. Grades could still be used as a method of conveying feedback from the professor to the student, although grades would not go on the student’s final record. Discussion with students, and even comments on essays are a more effective method of giving feedback than grades. * A credit system would allow greater flexibility within courses. Students could take time to experiment, study, or research in areas that are related to the course material, but are not actually part of the course content-i.e. not on the exam-but still worth studying. In the grade system students devote their I energy to the course content, whether it interests them or not, out of a fear of failure. In a credit system extracurricular learning

is facilitated.

The institution of credit courses would also encourage students to take courses in subjects that they are interested in, but do not take because they fear a low grade that would affect their overall average. Unfortunately, the actual recommendation of the arts faculty would reduce some of the benefits of the credit system. First of all, the number of credit courses which would count as part of the minimum

would count as an “F” in the student’s overall average., Consequently, one of the credit system’s main advantages-the -elimination of the fear of failure as an impediment to learning-would be almost meaningless. If the credit system is instituted, it should be done in such a way that courses passed are given credit, while nothing is lost if a course is failed. Students often learn things even in courses that they fail. The university should be an entity within itself, independent from-although responsive to-the rest of society, where people go for individual learning and growth that is meaningful for them. The university’s prime function is not to provide people with standardized degrees for other schools and for industry.

One of the nicest touches to PP&P’s Winter B-U-T-fui Scheme was phase 864-B3, more popularly known as “Tree-Kare”. Under this plan the soot and dirt from automotive, local brewery and /or physical resources (you know, the filthy -old .smoke stack) exhaust’ was meticulously washed off each leafy specimen regularly for a certain length of time. After this period was over, a specially developed “Real-is-stick” protective plastic coating was carefully sprayed on each tender limb. This miracle coating repels air pollution and other undesirable elements such as squirrels and birds (the surface kills them on contact). Unfortunately, however, the coating also lowers the lifespan of the plants. But that’s all right; the trees will be replaced in spring anyway, within the-framework of PP&P’s “Spring-A-Tree-A-Thon. .......
