What conflict of i-Merest

-

After a five-week rest the Campus Centre Board finally managed to meet .and accomplish a few things. Thursday, August 2, Chairman Fred Bunting called to order a meeting of four ’ voting members of the CCB and they attempted to clear away the debris of the last board .meeting. ’ The first- problem was the conflict of interest issue. At the ’ last meeting every member of the board was challenged with a conflict of interest and so there . was no-way for anyone to decide who, in fact, did have a conflict of , interest. Bunting presented his idea of what might have been the solution-giving the chairman power to strike a committee . to decide any conflict of interest issues. At first look this seemed quite reasonable but then Dennis Perkins of security put forth. the idea that there was no need for any conflict of interest policy at all. Perkins said “I cannot see any need for it here”,%ince everyone on the‘ board as well as everyone connected with the board has their own biases and therefore has a conflict of interest. Following his lead, the board voted unanimously to rescind the conflict of interest . policy. Next CCB heard the Activities Co-ordina tor ‘s report. Susan Phillips explained some of her ideas with the space allocations committee and then with the hiring of new turnkeys for the fall term; The SAC meeting was scheduled for Tuesday August 8. Hiring of new-turnkeys will begin the last week of August and continue into the first two weeks of September. Another method for solving the CCB problem of stacked meetings was -sought in the attendance requirements for representatives. There is a policy in the CCB policy book that states that no member miss two consecutive may meetings without written excuse. A bye-election would be called in thiscase. However, this policy has never been enforced and CCB hopes that in future thay can use thispolicy to -keep the meetings balanced against any sparticular faction that may want to control the meetings. Plans are underway for a reg’ ular schedule of meetings rather than the, haphazard calling of meetings at the chairman’s discretion. Beginning in the fall, meetings will be called every. two weeks and an attempt will be made to schedule them around the reps’ work schedules. -. -Susan

fQlkS In these times of liberalism and love and peace whateverness, the majority of people like to belikve , that they are liberated‘ ‘and accepting, They scoff and scorn at organized groups aiming at’ liberation. Well people, liberated types are concerned about the discrimination and ignorance happening, in the rest of the world _ and, let’s-face it, the majority of people prefer to be liberal in thought and reactionary in practice. So there’s a gay liberation movement on campus. Faggots, freaks, and dykes getting together, right? Scratch that hallucination and enter reality. First off, gay liberation deals with hassles that gay people may have but it also does edudationals, raps, and social type things. Straight (heterosexual ) people come to the meetings as well. It is not assumed that everyone’ that comes through the door is a ‘raging queen’. A lot of things are going on in the campus centre at 8pmj Monday nights, so no one bothers sitting down and taking inventory of every person who’ walks through the building to rm. 118.

Tatum O’NeaI , , is literally stunning in’ her porfrayaJ,of Addie, an illegitimate orphaned child who teams up woth a small-time con artist, / Moses Pray. ’ Addie is-unique in every respect. She; at the age nf. nine, manifests .a wisdom which * surpasses that ‘of her partner, Moses, whose main gig is conning widows into buying bibles.

The Stratford Festival Company is offering Nikolai Gogol’s The Marriage Brokers at The Avon- Theatre through Sept. 1. The selection of Gogol and Ivan Turyenev, two nineteenth century Russian playwrights is in part a tribute to the Russians who were. hosts of the Canadian company in. Moscow- last winter. While Gogol is perhaps Russia’s greatest comic writer, his claim to fame does not rest on his !work for the theatre. Of that, The Inspector General i,s better known and -’ certainly of more substance. Director William Mutt was faced with a distinct challengti. Here he had a play which ‘, Gogol himself described as a highly incredible ingident. There was no plot and little tction. The playwright had a penchant for caricature and his language was so inventive that even some Rtissians aredriven to distract@ over him. None of this comes over in translation. Since the play aimed at great fun itvhen it was wl’itten, this is what Hutt settled for-a couple of hours of ‘light, entertaining diversion. The production comes off as a fast-paced ‘farce with all stops out and a free hand to the cast to do what they could with it. What it lacked‘on the whole was a s&se ’ of style. It’s a coarse play about &arse people on a coarse theme, Much of. the ’ natural coarseness was missing, replaced by what often bordere\d on vulgarity. The tot+ effect was supei’ficial. To make things more difficult for himself j Hutt chose a ‘cast with a variety of accents. This worked against creating a sense of style. Only Lila Kaye as th6 professional .matchmaker gave us a feeling that tie were watching something that, if not uniquely Russian, was recognizable as being neither English nor French; The Russian names helped as did Murray Laufer’s fine’ design work. Leonard Frey, a very fine actor, who was an academy award nominee for his work in Fiddl& on the Roof; dominates the first act as the hero who can’t come to terms with his need to take a wife. prey expresses Gogol’s sexial neurosis in physical ternis, reminiscent of the “characters of The Boys in the Band. Frey played in both the film I and the stage play, and his ambivaf&t elegance was somewhat confusing when carried over intoltf% role. He rises however to the demands of the second act and it is perhaps only here’ that the suprarbal \character emerges out of Gogol’s Caricature. He takes a dive out ‘of the window rather thsn face the alter. Gogol’s women are ’ either idealized alabaster types at= threatening and dest’ructive. There were good / performances from Roberta’ Maxwell and Sheila Haney a;; the alabaster niece and her aunt. Why it was necessary to paint thl! heroine’s nose a distr?cting, chalk white remains a mysteiy. . Jadk Creley fanswill be plea&with him. Eric Donkin with more derformances may fight through the grotesque character into the incarnate caricature, Even if he doesn’t his wbrk is a delight to watch: Jos&h Shaw, Ronald Bishop, Kenneth cast. - Ppgue a,nd Sara ‘Botsford complete4he ’

Jazz; musiti to be

Those ’ who view Leon fiussell’s contributionsto Mad Dogs & Englishmen and The Concert. for Bangladesh with an approving eye will find some grounds for interest in Leon- Live (Capitol STCO-8917), a 3-Lp album which again demonstrates that the Oklahoma Kid is a masterful showman. A masterful singer he isn’t, however, and Live’s rather poor recorded quality also makes it difficult to enjoy such exce,llent supporting musicians as- Don Preston and Carl Radle. The test case will probably be your reaction to the 16 minute “Jumping Jack Flash/Youngblood Medley”, where Russell delivers a . seemingly interminable monologue on ‘his relationship with his old lady; the music is fine, once it happens but ‘getting there requires a high tolerance *for the most banal sort of ego-tripping. Even ___more __disappointing is Carole --Km Fantasy (Ode SPO18), -which is the first of her albums to give me more pain than pleasure. The culprit is partially the arrangements, much more saccharine and overblown than those of her previous releases, but the generally abysmal quality of the all-original songs is also disturbing. Ms. King is still .a fine vocalist, and manages to rescue two or three of the songs with excellent performing efforts; but no amount of eff~ort could put over crap such as “Believe in Humanity:“, _, I know it’s often true- sad to say We have been unkind to one another Tell me how many times has the golden rule Been applied by man to his brother I believe if I really looked at what’s going 0.n ( I’would lose faith I never could recover

This brand of touchy-feely pablum needs no encouragement from Carole King, and ‘one can only hope that Fantasy is merely a temporary aberration stemming from the onset of a degree of social consciousness. After wading through the above, the unpretentious cha,rms of Fairport Convention’s Rosie (A&M SP 4386) are thoroughly refreshing.’ The Fairporters distinctive blendt ,of electric folk and “Olde Englishe” sensibilities never offends the ear, and their good humour and unabashedly melodic music make for good listening with a pint of bitter or two; and their first reasonably stable personnel line-up in many a moon is also paying dividends. . ’ Old groups never say die, they just get anthologized to death by I‘Greatest, Hits” albums. Quicksi&?r/Antho/ogy (Capitol SVBB-I 1165) is a double album of some ofi the highlights of the Messenger Service’s stormy career (“The Fool”,. , :‘Mona”, “Fresh Air”), during which they changed from West Coast Psychedelic band to Nicky Hopkins and Friends, and then unfortunately fell under the spell of Dino Valenti, one of the few vocalists who could make Nick Gravenites sound good. Their one ,masterpiece, the “Who IJo You Love” variations on Happy Trails, is not here, however, and this makes the.album of more musicological interest than muxical interest, recommended’ only if you’ have an allconsuming curiousity about the development of an at best second-rank group. - -Old groups never die, they just have ancient live performances resurrected and released, by greedy record companies. History .of .the Grateful Dead, Vol. I (Warner Brothers BS 2721) is from ,a 1970 concert, and includes one side of I

short“acoustic doodads as well as a side featuring an-hold your Wm” breaths18 ‘minute version of “Smokestack ‘Lightning”. This is is basically a pleasant, but in no sense cosmic, album on a par with Live Dead, one to be considered after you have acquired such real gems as American Beauty and Workingman’s Dead. The award for neat-o title of the month goes to Spooky, Tooths’ you Broke My Heart Sp I Busted Your Jaw (A&M SP 4385), although it’s music won’t be’ causihg any stampedes at the Record Co-op. Slicked-over Led Zeppelin on some tracks, mature Guess Who on -others, but never achieving, that spark of pizzazz which* might . raise them above the level of all the other perfectlycapable-but-not-terribly-exciting grou-’ ps abounding pr,esently. On the ,evidence of two cuts (“Wildfire” and “This Time Around”), however, this is a ,potenti.ally great boogie band, so perhaps a live albumshould be their next venture.

Soul sotmds to lism \ to Radio Watt&o

Arettia Franklin’s genius ~should be no news to anyone, and about all I have to do ‘with Hey Now Hey [The Other Side of the Sky (Atlantic SD 7265) is recommend it. Quincy Jones’ production is superlative, the .material is somewhat more wideranging than is usual on her albums, and if you don’t like this brie there’s something wrong with your mosquiter’s tweeter. The growing popularityof The Temptations among White- audiences should be assisted by both,;of their most recent releases, A/l+ Dvections (TamlalMotown G962L) and Masterpiece (Tamla,/ Motown G965L). The Temps have developed a very successful formula for their albums, consisting of standard, AM-oriented Motown material (although much better sung and more imaginatively produced than most’ of it) played off against extended works such as “Papa Was a Rolling Stone”, miniature soul symphonies which combinenarrative . drama

from

nyr

with jazz improvisation. “Papa.. .” is a favourite of such certified’ members of the.youth cultu.re as Chevron graphfreak artist .Tom McDonald, which should be enough to drive even honkey blues aficionados to try it; and I suspect that they’ll like it. Another, Motown group, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, have parted’ company. ’ recently, but are commemmorated by 7957/7972 (Tamla 3200). .This is a live double album from a farewell concert at which they performed excellent versions of several of their past successes (“The Tears of a Clown”, “Bad Girl”, “Going to a GoGo”). and - will be a necessary acquisition for those who enjoyed the work of this incredibly sweet-voiced quartet. 1 The Miracles, minus Smokey Robinson, have attempted to ‘keep it going with Renaissance (Talma T325L), but this .Lp seems more of a requiem than anything else. New Lead singer William Griffin’s falsetto vocals approximate Smokey’s reasonably well, but the material and arrangements here are so relentlesslylame’that it may be unfair to judge The Miracles’ continuing viability from this album alone. The vocal harmonizing is still fine, but,, ’ something besides the harps.ichord and strings backing, typical of a -.Motown “class production” will be ‘required if there are to do more than provide soul music for Holiday Inn types. Last j but definitely not least -is an album of reggae music from the soundtrack.of the film The Harder They Come (Mango SMAS-7400). Reggae is a simple but emotionally powerful music which .directly expresses the #aspirations of the Jamaican working class, and comes as a breath of fresh air in a climate .where popular music, soul or otherwise, is often either selfconsciously militaht or unconsciously mindless.And featured singer Jimmy Cliff is very fine, certainly deserving a ( solo album in the near future. Again, reggae is a simple’, almost folkish music, perhaps too much so for putatively sophisticated university students, ‘but well worth the attention of those with more catholic tastes.

“Getting into jazz” seems to be one of ‘those things that people are ‘always promising themselves they”lk do. Not too many accomplish this, apparently, since most jazz artists are, still starving in comparison to their rock counterparts, and I don’t find this too surprising: as is the case with classical music, jazz requires a certain amount of dedicated{ listening before it can be comprehended, and it is probably unrealistic to expect this of a generation largely illiterate in its native language. F,or the more adventurous, however, there is lots of good ‘jazz about, as follows. The Jazz Years (Atlantic ,SD2-316) is not a bad survey of the more com.mercially successful developments in jazz from 1948-I-973, with the qualification required because of Atlantic’s failure to support the avantgarde artists of this period. The earlier material is quite excellent, and includes fine examples of the work of such neglected talents as Lennie Tristano, Jimmy Giuffre; aned Mose Allison; the later stuff is more variable, with too much attention paid to such musical pipsqueaks as Herbie Mann and the Mitchell-Ruff Trio, but the album is still recommended to those who are totally at sea as to where to begin to listen to 1’ jazz. The work of Duke Ellington should be equally accessible, not least. because much of it has been assimilated into popular music, and- his The Great Pairis Concert (Atlantic SD2-364) is also a nice way to ease into some different musical experiences. Ellington is a cblorist, whose orchestra has been an organic unity for so long that he has been able, to experiment with a range of instrumental voicings well beyond that of “bands” which exist only for recording_ sessions, and to hear his music on decent stereo equipment is equivalent to attend&g an exhibition .,of French Impressionist painters: colors sharp in one area flow softly together in another, all unified by an encompassing haze which illuminates but does not spotlight. There’s still plenty, of fire andfunk, mind you, but the emphasis is on whole cloths rather than brilliant individual efforts. . A similarly talented, if musically somewhat more avant-garde, composer and performer is presented on Char/es Mingus and F-Fiends in Concert (Columbia KG 31614). This is a tribute to Mingus organized by his jazz ’ colleagues, many of whom play on the album, and the music (all Mingus tunes) is appropriately jam session-ish an spontaneous: several excel lent so f OS, a good,time had by all, but probably a bit too t‘inside” ‘for the novice jazz fan.. Mingus is somewhere close to being a genius, however, and just about anything.wit.h his name on it is worth checking into. Rahsaan Rol,and Kirk is a blind saxophonist who kn.ocks me out live and)does very little<for me on record, for reasons which Prepare Thyself to Deal With a Miracle (Atlantic SD 1640) seems to exemplify. Kirk has pretensions to become some sort of ultimate synthesis of all that is valid in contemporary music, jazz or otherwise, -and he simply does not possess the compositional or orchestrational skills, to make even a reasonable stab at such a lofty aim. He., has been a very tasty jazz improvisor in the past, however, and one can only hope that he will eventually return to that which. he does best. ’ -pad

strategy of nationalization is both economically feasible and correct at this point in time. Unquestionably the most significant -aspects of the Parks’ research are one, it explains how Canadian financial groups maintain control of economic enterprises through their domination of financial institutions and two, it clearly points out how Canadian capital is dependent and subordinate “to, the drive of US groups for their own profit.” The key to comprehending the very~ nature of capitalism in Canada is to- understand the interlocking directorates between the. central banks and large enterprises, investment trusts and insurance companies, _ both foreign and national. It is by means of interlocking directorates that a small I group of. Canadian “tycoons”, subordinate to the more powerful American capitalists, dominate Canada’s economic base. Although tangential to the main thrust of the book, the section on the role of Canadian capital abroad brings to the fore an easily overlooked feature of this. country’s development. The authors make the reader aware of the exploitative role that the Canadian government, banks and individual capitalists have played or continue to perform in the Caribbean, Latin America, and various African and Asian slates.

abour in the motor industry is an increasingly happy hunting ground for agitators. InBritain output in the last quarter was 60,000. -cars below last years. But it is not just Britain. Fiat lost’270,OOO cars through strikes in. Italy in 1969, and 100,000 last year. Where strikes are banned,as ~they are in Russia, the workers merely go sick; absenteeism in the plant built by Fiat for the Russians hasgone to 30 per cent, and reaches its peak, as one might have expected, on Mondays and Fridays. Managements in the motor industry , have been told by politicians and sociologists that it is their duty to make life in the factories merry and diverting, in order to relieve the monotony of the job and so make their workers sweeter-tempered, and to do them credit, many have tried to follow this advice. The schemes they have thought up range from a factory, radio >station (at Dagenham) to full air, conditioning (at Fiat’s Cassino plant). But more and more managements see these only as - palliatives and one lasting cure‘ as managing without so many men. The Japanese are going for the ultimate solution:. a factory of robots where the only men would -be maintenance engineers. The government is backing studies for an eight year development programmeto see w-hether at not this can be done. The speclficatipn is for an assembly line to ,J make gear-boxes on a scale that would normally employ 200-300 workers, but operated entirely by robots. The Ministry of International Trade and Industry is directing the initial design studies, which should be finished early next year. The electronics and machine . tool industries and the universities are .involved: Assuming that the plan looks feasible, the- fight will then begin to get the.government to put up, the 50 million or so poundsstirling, plus a contribution from industry, that the robot line is expected to cost. Even a snort while ago, large , segments of the motor industry would have said this was a wholly impractical * project. But F(at is now already half-. way there, and so is part of-the General Motors factory at Lordstown, in Ohio. - Fiat’s moment of decision-came when it was crippled by strikes in 1969, and the speed with which it has moved has ’ taken-even the unions by surprise. It is n.ow op.erating two separate production lines -with robots imported from America. In one plant, 18 robots, replacing 20 men, weld more than 500 points. Each has a,n automatic arm with two claws on the end. The claws hiss and splutter, and every few seconds a weld is, made. The claws pull back’ a few inches and the hand that

l mm

holds them changes its angre rather clumsily, ready for the next weld. The ’ robot’s actions are jerky, compared with a human arm, but the reject rate is only-l-2 per cent. The cost of the 18 robots was 500,000 pounds, and they will take nearly 10 years to pay for themselves., but cost is not really the issue. The robots work in a section of the plant that was most afflicted by strikes and absenteeism and Fiat could forsee-a time when it would simply not be able to attract men to this type of work at all. The other Fiat automatic line uses a single robot to carry out 430 welds a minute. Here the car shell moves into a big steel box where it is attacked by hundreds-of robot fists, like the tentacles of an octopus. This is a mor.e expensive installation; it costs 7$IO,OOO pounds but is expected to pay for itself in 5-6 years. The factory in -which it has been installed is a new one, at Cassino, where .most of the 4,000 men working there are having their first experience of factory life and are not likely to object to half the welding is done automatically, and the few men around theplant earn nearly 3 pounds Stirling an hour. General Motors has had strikes at Lordstown, but they had little to do with c automation. Fiat has given a try to the Volvo-Saab solution for labour relations. It has tackled working conditions, substituting paints in powder form for solvents, allowing more work breaks, and introducing an element of variety into jobs, but absenteeism is still around 12 per cent. What has gone down is the number of strikes-only 10,000 cars-lost -in the first quarter of thds year, compared with an average of 25,000 a quarter last year. Renault is now trying the same cure. In another effort to buy-peace, Fiat is getting rid of the assembly line altogether in some places and substituting island work sites instead. These cost twice as <much as an assembly line and put up plant investment costs by one-fifth. It is a characteristic of all these attempts to improvethe industry’s labour record that they are. expensive. A perfectly sound financial argument can be made for saying that, it is cheaper simply-to pay the workers that little bit more each time they cut up rough, Certainly the profit record of British Leyl,and, which has. followed this policy more from . force of circumstance than deliberate choice, is better than -Fiat’s. Its investment record- is much worse. Fiat’s planned investment in southern ’ Italy alone is twothirds of the 500 million pounds that British Leyland plans to spend’ throughout its who!e group. And the reason why British

Leyland is not spending more is that it cannot see an adequate return to shareholders from any large sum. Fiat, in a lesssophisticatedcapital market, operates under a different set of constraints: return on capital is one of the lesser of them. But this cannot be said of the --Japanese, and if there is one common characteristc of Japanese industry it is , the steady move towards greater reliance on robots. One of the ba.lI- . bearing factories is evaluating a new machine, that will assemble, test and pack a complete bearing all on its own, and requires just one worker to remove packages. A manufacturer developing control systems for J

machine tools has a line of eight lathes already linked jnto a computer and has nearly completed a robot that will shift the work from one machine to another. Another manufacturer, with an agreement with Tube Investments, has a group of machines which automatically produce a range of’ ground shafts. In the motor industry itself Toyota has a section where 24 men operate a group of linked li.nes that. machine the cylinder block, crankshaft, con-rods and -pistons and assemble them into a complete engine in just under a mi,nute. Special carpeted walkways have been built for the visitors who want to go and gape at _ this. ’

-...bUt neithe,r Will the UAW ike the negotiations of the the 1973 union past, negotiations with the Big 3 auto companies are more of a show than negotiations. The guidelines have already been set in rubber, trucking and the electrical industries. The Big 3 have held their secret meetings and have made a decision as to how much they are going to grant the United Auto Workers (UAW) in fringe benefits and wage increases. UAW president Leonard Woodcock and vice presidents Irving Bluestone, Ken Bannon and Douglas Fraser may already have had secret meetings -with top management and agreed on a package. Their discussions now are largely devoted to what they refer to as “non economic” demands. Shall a worker be judged guilty before the grievance procedure is exhausted? What will happen around the questions of compulsory overtime, joint unionmanagement health and safety committees and the value to be placed on each fringe benefit? With the important decisions having been made behind the backs of the workers, there is still need for a show. Important negotiations seemingly continue at the General Motors building in Detroit, at the Ford Glass building in Dearborn and at Chrysler’s main offices in Highland Park. These “TV” shows are held mainly to let Woodcock demonstrate his labour statesmanship and for Bluestone, Bannon and Fraser to exhibit their bargaining -skills. Woodcock has assured the auto barons they don’t have to fear a strike, thus disarming the workers. At the UAW Collective Bargaining Convention in March 1973 the tone for the negotiations was set. The Collective Bargaining Resolution said, “Because we are not wedded to one-or another narrow approach but are willing to consider a wide range of alternate solutions, it is not necessary for us to present our proposals in the form of rigid inflexible demands...We will not-go to the bargaining table in 1973 looking for a fight but for a fair share of that increased abundance...We ask no more than our fair share and because we seek only our equity our approach to negotiations is non-inflationary...” This is the same script that has been used time and again. The unions’ demands being flexible, the employers will make the most of that flexibility. By the use of generalities, the UAW leadership avoids -the danger of committing itself too firmly to a set of demands. They can compromise without fearing a revolt in the ranks. The reference to their demands being non-inflationary is backhanded support to the idea that it is high wages that cause inflation. In 1973 the economic facts are heavily weighted in favour of the union. Big 3 profits in 1972 and the first six months of 1973 have been the highest

The labour content of robot factory shifts behind the ?nes, to the repair shops, on a scale It it is difficult to estimate at this lge. But if Japan thinks it wise to go such lengths now, before any of the iditional pressures from labour have it, for how long can British instry-or for that matter any ropean manufacturer with ;embly-line problems-stand out jinst the trend? -from

the economist

in their history. There is a runaway inflation in the cost of living and the companies have already asked for a price increase. Ford and GM have granted their white collar workers more in wage increases than their UAW members have been receiving. General Motors, the pace setter in the industry and the one who calls the tune in negotiations, has opened with a powerful publicity campaign in support of its position of a 55 percent first-year wage package.It has mailed to all its employees a pamphlet stating that it pays an average wage of $5 per hour, with an additional $3 in fringe benefits. This; they say, adds up to $241.60 per week or $12,000 per year. If we are to accept these figures at face value (disputed by the UAW), we must remember that upwards of $1,500 is taken by the city, state and federal income taxes; over $600 is taken for Social Security and $120 a year in union dues. This leaves the worker with less than the amount the government says is needed for a medium standard of living. Without overtime the worker’s income would be further reduced. A revised cost-of-living allowance (COLA) is unquestionably the most important demand the union is making. In 1964 the UAW stated, “Correction of the faulty arithmetic and technical defects in the cost-ofliving formula is essential if GM workersand their families are to enjoy the high and steady rising living standards which reflects the full productivity of our national economy and are necessary if the economy is to achieve its full potential...” This “faulty arithmetic” has continued to the present day. In the COLA formula, the UAW says during the 1970 contract the workers should have recived 44 cents per hour rather than the 35 cents they did receive. The union is not demanding’ that this shortage be made up. A compromise on this issue might give the worker the increased COLA in 1974 or 1975. There should be little dispute over granting dental care. This has already been won in some UAW contracts. Here too a compromise will cost the companies little in the first year of the con tract.

PENSION PLAN In 1949 when the UAW negotiated its first pension plan, the late UAW -president Walter Reuther emphasized the necessity of having pension funds “actuarially sound”, meaning that a pension plan should be fully funded so that a company going out of business would be able to pay every employee his share in the fund. This is sound reasoning for the small companies who might be forced out of business but for the Big 3 this was just an excuse to pay small pensions during the first 15 years of the pension plan. It was not until 1965 that pensions went above $100 per month for those with 25 years or more of service.

During these years huge reserves were being built up in the Big 3 pern$ion funds. The GM pension fund is approaching $4 billion and is increasing at the rate of $400 million per year. The Big 3 can increase their payments to pensioners by 50 per cent without increasing their payments into these funds. There would be no immediate increase in cost to the Big 3. Voluntary overtime is in effect at an American Motors plant in Kenosha, Wise. and in the farm equipment industry which is unionized by the UAW. Most workers take all the overtime they can get; they need it to meet the ever increasing cost of living. Too much overtime has brought early death to many workers; many grow old before their time. It disrupts family life causing neglect of the wife and family. This demand might be compromised with an increase in the premium paid for overtime. The employers will use the argument of foreign competition to limit the union’s economic demands. With the deflation of U.S. currency abroad this argument carries little weight. Much of the foreign competition comes from foreign subsidiaries of Chrysler, Ford and General Motors. It is ironic that in recent years foreign competition has been able to gain as much as 18 per cent of the U.S. market because of the refusal of the Big 3 to begin producing the small car 10 years earlier than they did. It is also a fact that while Japan and Germany were spending large amounts on research and development of peace-time commodities, America .was spending even larger amounts on military hardware. Japan has a car that meets our emission control standards while the American product lags behind its import rivals. Being well aware of the compromising character of the UAW leadership the Big 3 are making their usual demands on the union. They want the union to help discipline the workers and they are proposing to trim fringe benefits the union won in the past. They say union demands are “astr0n0micaI”. They not only treat union demands lightly but they show little respect for union officials at the bargaining table. This too is part of the script. The employers are serving notice on the UAW negotiators that they are prepared to use their huge resources to curb union demands. While the UAW negotiators meet separately with the companies, behind-the-scenes representatives of the Big 3 meet to plan strategy, thus preventing any divisions among the Big 3 negotiators. Neither the UAW leadership nor the companies can prevent strikes on local demands but once the national contract is agreed on they will use their combined forces to get, the men to. return to work with or without their grievances being settled. Spokesmen for both sides will say the agreement was a victory for sanity and peace in the’industry for another three years. The workers in the plants will soon learn they are still in the rat race to keep up on the production line and to meet the weekly grocery bill. If there is a cut in auto production in the next period, the workers will find themselves in a worse position than before the 1973 contract negotiations. -john w. anderson from guardian

Things were not always thus. Until recently, the ,main line was serviced by a trolley fleet, which-was wired just for King street. This campus, at one end, and, Fairview Park Mall, at- the other,. were therefore served by shuttle buses, and the connections were- not always convetiient at all, especially\ in winter. For a while, the University-. _ avenue bus did not even enter the campus. And the trolley-to-Fairview shuttles were notoriously in.convenient. -’ Under the new arra@$nent; you& now?8 a bus on campus and travel directly to all of K-W’s movie houses and most ..of ‘its- -decent .drinking spots, not to mention the major shopping centres. Waterloo Square, downtown* Kitchener and the _ Fairview Mall are the major shopping centres. The Waterloo and the Picture Show iii Waterloo; the Capitol, Odeon, Hyland, Lyric and Fox in Kitchener; and the Fairview Cinema at Fairview Plaza are all on the ma@ .line. The fare is 25 cents and transfers can get you ’ just about anyplace-off the main line fairly quickly / now. The first bus arrives on campus-at around 6 a.m., and last bus leaves’ for Kitchener at 1240 a.m.,. with, about 15-‘minute between-buses. _ . intervals ..

For a lot of pear de hitting the Waterloo campus this fall it will be the first time-they are living on“their own. It will be the first chance they will have to decide what sort of accomodation they’ are going to be ljving i n4 Inrtiat sort of community.’ Again, a lot of these poeple will not have given this subject much thought. The majority of first yeat students find their way into the, university-controhed residences that ‘are situated on campus. Now ‘known are Village One-and Village Two, these mazes of corridors and cubicles serve as home for students that ~have not looked into the alternatives. That is not to say that no one living there enjoys it-on the contrary, feedback from the students would lead anybody to be1iev.e that the village was just great. The social life is ready made:floor parties.; village pubs and particularly in Village Two, the double rooms make it difficult to be lonelyapparently the greatest fear of every freshman. And as well. as this, there is ab‘solutely nothing to -worry about. All food is prepared and served for you, all cleaning is done by the staff even down to the bedlinen. The student has to eat the food and dirty the rooms, and that’s about jt. It might sound tempting to some but there are many other students who after one term or one year or even after only considering the place simply decide it’s not for them. There has to be some reason for this. Sure, the social lifeIs ready made but it is also limited in variety. The nature of the entertainment-the-pubs and the movies-just does not suit everyone. tt is difficult to-be lonely but at the riskof sounding sloopy let me‘mention that it’s also easy to be very lonely in a crowd,and it does happen. -On the other hand, suppose you do want to be alone, then the whoje place might just begin to get on your nerves. Thevillages put you in contact with a lot of people, then the rest is up to you. Most students seem to feel that, it is the best place for any first year student to start off. For many it may well bemany students with heavy course loadsjust do not have the time for cooking

and cleaning. And after all it’s so much easier. As for those who find the village conceptugly there are quite a few other choices. One is ‘the Waterloo Cooperative Residence. At first glance it might look very. similar to the villages. That is not the case. It looks like an office building but the spirit-is not the same. This residence is run by students for students in a-co-operative nature. That -means anyone living there is a member of the ’ organization that runs the building and in turn has to do their part in running the place. Actually there are two apartment-style groups and two houses’ run by the organization. The co-operative is cheaper thanfhe administration run villages, which is strange considering the administration does not need to pay taxes on th_eir building ,or property-while the cooperative..does. The food in .co-op is different from the village which tends towards a lot of carbohydrates to keep the tummies full. Co-op tries a greater variety of foods that stem from the different’culturali groups that fihd their way into the lifestyle. The co-op claims to be free-spirited but there are a few contradictions in the way they approach things.’ It may be that. some things have to be done in order to keep everything legal and to attempt to keep the whole thing running. For example, on the application’ for residence they ask your marita! status,, which really should not matter at all: The person answering the phone for the co-op could not explain why the question was on the form but assured me-that nobody there cared about the v. answer. ,-.Li to ,, fiind the aG That - brings L \ ministration’s Married Students Residence. These are one or two bedroom apartments that they rent out * to married couples. You cook your own food and clean your own sheets and pay your own rent to the administration. Common-law couples used to be able to live in these apartments if one of the v couple agreed ,to sign the other person’s last name. This way it can look like you’re married. (Now this practice . has stopped and manager WL Pigden says they will, be-renting to oniy legally, F

Some’ ares w-ith meals and others are .. not-it goes on and ‘on. _ This can be the best solution for the person who wants to’%&ontheir own and needs a lot of-time for work. You may have trouble getting down to work . in _ eitherthe, village -or the co-op situation. But the ,main’ drawback of these single rooms is the other side’of the advantage. You are likely to be alone, often. First year is rough enough without the problem of having no friends. It is d#ficult to meet new. people and make fiiends if you only see them-one hour a day for three days a week and then you all go your own very different ways. ‘-The last two possibilities for students are renting ‘an ‘aprtment or renting a house from so’meone or some‘ com.pany in the communi&;: Although it ‘is becoming:more and more difficult to find.jlandlords thatwil&r&$ to students, there are some around’ and it is a possibility well worth looking into.

Normally we go from our mother’s cooking to an erratic stage where we, vary between our own, our mate’s or someone else’s cooking. What is important . here is that normally we do not cook adequately for ourselves and if we are fed at mass-feeding outlets they do not, cook well enough for our own nutrition. Take acloser look. What do you buy when you shop? What do you eat during the day? Probably a lot of unnecessary carbohydratesand. fats. Most likely :you are lacking in vegetables and fruits. It’s an easy thing to fall into. It takes a long time or a lot of planning to get into good eating habits once you’ve left your home for university. If you eat at a food service outlet or residence you could also be trapped into an eating lifestyle that you may never get out of. What is it? This is the non-caring attitude that many people accept when dealing with food. The “I’m at. hungry and it looks edible” titude iIs becoming quite prevalent.

McMaster has frequently bragged that among its neighborsare one or two big names from the provincial ministry . of colleges and universities therefore they have no need for OFS. That is, until Mat needs some information on what is happening on other campuses at which time OFS can usually expect a phone call. Right from its inception the Ontario Federation of Students had the unenviable problem of dealing .with the increases in . tuition and cutbacks in student aid brought down by the provincial government as part of its cutbacks in secondary and postsecondary educational financing. . The impact of the cutbacks vary from campus to campus as did the tenor of student reaction. Augmenting the awkwardness of formulating a provincial strategy for its membership was the broadness of the political spectrum in OFS as reflected by the delegates at its general meetings. -While some delegates were clamouring for the organization to take to the streets last year the two-person full-time staff of fifteen universities, Ryerson, four colleges, and set parliament straight (and claiming 1OFS was unable to react to situations fast that the mass of students in Ontario would enough from being overburdened.

One point in ‘favour of an arena with large seating capacity is that more people could see varsity hockey games. Another point is J that the Waterloo Arena is not ’ expected to last much more. than five years so, why not build a facility with a relatively large seating capacity now than later? The reason. for not building a facility with a large seating capacity is related to the cost of maintaining the complex.

The warrior track and field team is going into what is classified as the old rebuilding trick.

In the OUAA championships it’s the points that count at the end of the competition, other words, placing in the top ’ in six is just as good as winning.

by george kaufman

Out of town A ’ quieter * kind of life Kitchener-Waterloo in many ways is a large city trapped in a small town mentality. Since 1941 the population of the two cities - which nestle at times affectionately next to each other-has quadrupled. And if one includes the Cambridge area in what could be loosely called the Waterloo region the population reaches well over 200,000. The influx of students each fall at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University and the community college adds roughly 20,000 more people. Despite a fairly large population and the not-too-other desirous manifestations of urban life like shopping plazas and franchise operations, K-W in many ways hasn’t realized it has grown up. Entertainment is mostly confined to pubs and movies which change with infrequency and whose managers’ selections are at the mercy of head offices in Toronto. Some live theatre does make itself available during the winter and the Picture Show, a 16-millimeter cinema in downtown Waterloo, tries to bring some balance by showing good, though somewhat older movies. Places to hear jazz and blues with any frequency are nonexistant here which ineans either trips to Toronto on the weekend or waiting for the Federation to sring in someone good for the next coffee house or concert. Folk music suffers much Jf the same neglect so fans have to stay at lome with their own stereos, become lroficient on banjo or hope for folk :oncerts at either of the two universities. t is doubtful that any kind of swinging light life exists here more than in “eterborough or Orillia. But it is possible to take advantage-of lvhat is left of the small town atmosphere although that too is becoming in:reasingly more difficult. The famous Xitchener Market with its Mennonite Jendors is now located in a parking garage; the old site the victim of urban senewal. Twice a week throughout the ummer until after Oktoberfest it is lossible to slide a basket over your arm ind buy eggs, fruit, cheese, vegetables, smoked salmon, pastries and hundred of Ither tasty staples and delicacies. The Mennonite farmers manning the rooths however are becoming fewer and *heir places are being taken by fruit Towers from the Niagara Peninsula and om*mercial bakeries. Some of the Menlonites have retreated to two new farmers

markets which opened in reaction to the tearing down of the old market building and city hall. One market is held every Saturday in Elmira, a small town on Highway 85 north of Waterloo, and Waterloo now has its own market north of the city. Elmira’s has been open since last summer and the Waterloo market since the first part of August. Both are smaller and with a more limited variety of products than at the older one in Kitchener. The small towns which surround K-W have other attractions and give a clearer -indication of the German influence which was predominant from the 19th century until the 1950’s. In 1941, for example, the population of Kitchener broken down by mother tongue was 47.9 per cent German and only 34.7 per cent British. By 1961 the German percentage had declined to 18.1 per cent. Elmira besides having the market offers trotting races every week and the Homestead Restaurant with homemade liverwurst and soups. And a restaurant in

St. Jacobs next to a service station which looks like any version of Joe’s Diner has smoked pork chops, wienerschnitzel and homemade bread and_ pies. Food is often the main attraction of the small towns _which are within driving distance. Most hotels have their own versions of pig tails, spare ribs and pork hocks which range from edible to good. If you get tired of eating your way through St. Agatha, Petersburg,

Heidelburg and Breslau, there is still a trip to Elora, which is northeast of Elmira. More English than German, Elora has been discovered by people from Toronto as a good place to live while painting or doing pottery or making good furniture. Through a quirk of fate, Elora missed the influx of industry and neon signs which destroyed the beauty of many small Ontario towns in the fifties. Shady streets and gracious brick houses are home for retired area farmers and the “outsiders” from Toronto, KitchenerWaterloo and Guelph. Both groups seemed to be concerned with preserving Elora’s and its twin Salem’s quietness. But there is also the chamber of commerce group who like to advertise the possibility. of industrial sites and natural gas rates. A visit is a good way to spend an afternoon, going through the two pottery workshops (one of which is located in an old church), poking through the shops and having teaaand scones in the Nightingale Tea Shop and Antique Store. St. John’s Anglican church has a communion service on display which was given to the first rector of the church by Florence Nightingale, his first cousin and the woman whom he was forbidden to marry. Instead of marrying her, he came to Canada, first to the Red River settlement as a missionary and then to Elora. While in Elora, Florence Nightingale sent him the communion service. The church also has a choir and organist good enough to- have produced an album of anthems. The town is also only a few miles from the Elora Gorge, a conservation area with some spectacular scenery by the Grand River, pleasant meadows and a small lake for swimming. It’s a good way to forget streets and concrete buildings for a while and drop into a quieter, less demanding existance. Stratford is also within easy driving distance of Kitchener-Waterloo. Aside from the obvious attraction of the Shakespeare festival, Stratford itself is an often lovely- town with the Avon River banks offering a pleasant grassy place for meditation and looking at the swans. The Black Swan Coffee House at last hearing was still operating with music by Perth County Conspiracy and friends. Tea, coffee, cider and homemade yogurt are among its attractions. The disadvantage is having to listen to members of the Conspiracy complain about the festival crowd but waiting until that crowd has filled the coffee house befor performing. So with a car or a good friend with a car, Kitchener-Waterloo can become a bit more than movies and pubs and a trip to Toronto. -deanna

Take that, ,Bell!

Early last year Carl Totzke, tlhe director of the physical activities complex at the University of Waterloo approached people with theidea of hosting the-~:975 World Student Games in the Kitchen&-Waterloo area. Following a sekies of public meetings at which this ’ topic was discussed, ,enough support was gathered to warrant taking t’he proposal ,before the municipal government; of both Kitchener and Waterloo. Both cities agreed to support the project and between them pledged $9OO,OOO%o help financd this undertaking. The rest of the approximately three million dollars needed was to come from the federal and provincial governments. In July of this year an inspeCtion committee from the World Student Games organization visited the KitchenerWaterloo are to look over the facilities and plans available should the games be held . here. After being held in suspense for the last month, the World’ Student Games committee this week informed us that they were turning down the bid of Kit-’ ’ chewer-Waterloo for the 1975 World Student Games. ThG main reason for the rejection seems to be that the K-W area is considered too small to host and event of this size an$ nature.

It has, what turns some students off, a sense of comx,nunity . A healthy, attiosphere and a crew of netily elected dons/senior resident that will undoubtedly make the 73/74 stay on campus a good one. So to all Renison Addicts who like myself bitched and ‘griped about the food and groups within groups I say only one thing; see ydu in the fall because its obvious that this community I spoke of is recognized since a great number of senior s&dents are taking up residence there iti the fall. To those who won’t be returning, well c’est la vie. To Al Shopland and-Di@na who are to b,e married August 18173 in B.C. and who are returhing to, U. of W. I wish the best of luck. I ktiow all the people you met at Renison wish you the. same.

If the summer mail-out chevron is here, can fall be far behind? Answer: No, of course not. Those of us involved in the chevron are mostly taking off for a few weeks away irom the bedlam of infantil’e politics and petty ego-tripping. And it will be nice, it will be. See you in a few weeks, when the fun ,starts in earnest, and probably the boys upstairs have a few unused tricks up their short sleeves incoming and upcoming freshies, hope with which to make our year more interesting. you found this issue illum’inating, informative, hi g, with-it., out front and etc. Have several . ‘new features ready to go in the fall, including a weekly feature on experimental work being done on _ campus and a surprise weekly syndicated cartoon series, so if you dig it. come to the campus centre and visit us.
