Spiders the world over were outraged to learn this week that Arabella, the second cosmic spider, had died of hunger. The announcement was made, by officials- at the Marshall Space Flight Centre last Saturday. Arabella was discovered dead when the vial in which she made her journey into space, returned to the centre. Her” friend and companion in flight, Anita, died while still in outer space. She died ’ from the same reasons as Arabella-hunger. Arabella had been encased in the vial for 32 days whereshe had managed to spin herweb in the weightlessness of space. Scientists had wanted to use her in further experiments to see whether or not she would be able to function properly now that she had returned to earths atmosphere. -

the Latin American Students ‘Association is the natural consequence of a series of informal meetings among Latin American: students. Last winter, they realized- that there was a substantial n-umber of Latin American students on campus, most of them anxious to share their problems and experiences and anxious to reidentify themselves within the context of the north american society.-They-were also wanting to show to others the real face of La tin America. z Therefore, they started holding not so regular meetings, each. person presenting something about his country. They started to exchange newspapers and magazines. There was very successful participation \ ! with films and panel-discussions) during Third World week, held in-March, on campus. No doubt, LASA was a necessity within the university community. So, here is LASA. Formally, constituted, registered with the International Students Association, and having gone through all the necessary bureaucracy of official recognition. The main purposes of LASA are toserve as a bond of fellowship among the members of the Latin American community of UW and to promote discussion and better understanding of Latin American problems. They will try to acheive these goals by all possible (feasible) means, such as films,-panel-discussions, guest-speakers, social parties, and with your help. I Their first years activities begin Oct. iith when anyone interested in the land “below R-io Grande” can at&d the ‘first meeting. LASA,

c The university newspaper the Gazette has never been a centre of critical attention. The- opinion of the’ majority of people on campus seems to be that the Gazette is good as an information sheet but little more. It is where students and faculty as well as staff members look for the facts-they never expect anything beyond that and not surprisingly they never get any more than that. , Therefore it was with some surprise that the Chevron learned on Tuesday that indeed the Gazette was not as harmless as it always _J appears. The Gazette. has very few paid staff and relies heavily on commissioned freelance writers for its material. Monica Lentin was one such writer ’ employed by th,e Gazette for the last three years. On March 21, 1973 the Gazette published an ’ article written by Lentin concerning an - interview with Dr. .Mundel and economics. The -article appeared under Lentins pen name of Ruth Laser. On the very same day the Kitchener-Waterloo Record published the article, with some minor editing, under the name of their business editor-Henry Kochs. ’ Lentin noticed this strange occurrance and called the record to inquire as‘ to why her artiele had appeared under someone else’s r _-

Junta kills

L

MONTREAL (CUP )---There have been between 20,000 and. 25,000 deaths in Chile since the bloody coup d’etat of September 11, 1973. This is the testimony of the first three Quebecois to return from Chile since the military regime took power. The three are Catholic priests, Father Maurice Herbert and Patrick Donavan of the Society of Foreign Missions, and Father Jean Latulippe, an oblat of Marie Immaculate. The first two were .working in the working-class section of Temuco, a town in the south of Chile while Latulippe was teaching mass education in the working class section of Chile. They said that it’s hard to imagine the repression that exists in Chile. The three returned to Montreal on Thursday, September 27 and told reporters th,at ’ the military junta is sytematically assassinating ,the leaders of the labour movements and the peoples’ movements ( organization populaire) . The army is eliminating .a11 resistance against the new regime. A “death squad” is at work just as in Brazil and other ‘La tin American countries. (Death squads are small groups of policemen whose sole purpose is to torture and kill those “criminals’‘-usually political opponents of - the reigning fascist regime in, Brazil and other South ’ American countries-whom they consider to have been treated too . leniently by thelaw. Although they act in secret from the ‘populace and totally outside the law, most squads have the tacit approval of the heads of the police and of the government in those countries. ) The story told by- the three Quebecois agrees with reports that have been surfacing in Europe and the United States. For the last two’ weeks Chile has been virtually cut off from the rest of the world. All communications must pass what one journalist called the most “extreme and .brutal censure imaginable.” One Mexican journalist who managed to get to Argentina reported to have seen a stadium in Chile full of prisoners who were waiting to be deported to the deserted Magellan islands. Concentration camps are being built on these islands. The airforce has been ‘bombing factories where -workers have locked ihemselves in. One factory alone reported five hundred dead. Soldiers have been ordered to sack libraries to burn all. suspect literature to rid Chile of Marxist thought. As well, prices have been put on the heads of the leaders of leftist parties and of Allende’s- government. All top administrators and policy makers of the- university will be fired and replaced with people sympathetic to the junta. There is a witch hunt of strangers to rid Chile of ideologies that are contrary to’ the political beliefs of the junta. ’ ,p

ventionally 3 movements of alternating tempo. The trick here is to use the many voices of which the organ is capable in order to replace the variety of ordinary instruments for which these pieces were originally written before adaption to this use. Because of this and the energetic performance, even the more casual fans of the organ may find these pieces worth a listen. Recording is not by Columbia itself, but by a German concern and increased quality is evident in rich bass and clean reverberance. -pete smith

Opening the new year Last weekend, the Humanities Theatre was the scene of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony’s opening concert, with works by Weber, Brahms, and Dvorak conducted by Raffi Armenian. Improvement in our community orchestra has been in evidence since Mr. Armenian took over, and it is pleasant to be able to report that it is still continuing. Some new faces appeared, some old ones were missing, and the effects of a solid week of rehearsal for this opening concert, added to the contributions of the newcomers, made for the best orchestral sound yet from this group. And Armen ian again demonstrated _ his interpretative talents, so that the occassion bodes well for the coming season. Three works from the l%h-century literature occupied this program. Carl Maria von Weber’s Overture to his opera, Der Freischutz, was the opener. This piece has some noble writing for horn quartet (the fourth member was not identified in the program), and the opening bars occasioned some difficulties for the K-W’s men, who nevertheless managed to sound rather well when they got organized. On the other hand, the first clarinet, Harry Swaneveld, distinguished himself immediately, as he was to do throughout the evening. The performance was well-paced and solid; I’d forgotten what a lovely piece it is, and it made one think how nice it would be to see it some day on the Canadian Opera’s agenda. The Weber and Brahms’ Variations on a Theme of Haydn were substituted, without explanation, for the Brahms Double Concerto which we’d been promised. Although that concerto is a fascinating work, it must be admitted that these noble Variations constitute an intrinsically superior work-with little doubt the greatest of all orchestral variations. They are also something of a challenge to the semi-professional orchestra. The windband, on the whole, met this best, with some very nice sounds emanating from the clarinets and oboes in particular, and the ‘horn quartet in the sixth variation with its hunting-hornlike motif coming on well. We are, of course, many tens of thousands of dollars away from first-class string sound, and some rather timid and tenuous violin playing was noticeable in, for instance, the third variation. On the other hand, they too achieved some quite solid sound in tutti passages. Again, Armenian’s conducting was simply admirable, - cohesive and well-thought-out, and leading up to a fine climax in the ostinato finale. This finale is a sort of compact extra set of short variations tacked on to the eight full-length treatments in the main body-of the piece. Set over the fivemeasure repeating bass figure, they in condensed form the recapitulate various techniques previously employed, but with a cumulative force that can be quite hair-raising.

Plastic cowboy As in his album which immediately preceeded The last of the Brooklyn Cowboys, Cuthrie wisely included music written by original western balladeers. Their songs provide a relief from Cuthrie’s own work which too often tends to be cute and trite. Side one of Brooklyn Cowboys (Warner Brothe,rs MS2142) with the exception of two cuts written by Arlo includes such western classics as “Miss the Mississippi and You,” “Lovesick Blues,” and “This Troubled Mind of Mine.” The latter cut as done by Cuthrie and his group is strongly reminiscent of the Grand Ole Opry sound and performers like Ernest Tubb and Roy Acuff. I must admit a prejudice for “Miss the Mississippi and You” which was written in 1932 by Bill Halley but made famous by the singing breakman of. the depression, Jimmie Rogers. Cuthrie’s version is done well’ fai thful to the original and adds some fine clarinet work and excellent bottleneck guitar by Ry Coo&r. The aIblum includes two cuts attributed to Woody Cuthrie, “Ramblin Round” which was a tune so reminescent of a dozen other folk songs including “Goodnight Irene”. t3ut it was this quality in Woody Cuthrie’s music that made it so playable, singable and adaptable. The second cut by Woody “Gypsy Davy” is also derivative having an amazing resemblance to the traditional folksong “Minstral Davy .” To wrap up the western swing side of Brooklyn Cowboys Cuthrie includes his own composition “Uncle Jeff” in which he sounds like John Hartford. Uut with the fine banjo work done by Doug Dill& the cut is not a complete loss. The second side is not less satisfying. It begins with a boring version of Dylan’s “Gates of Eden” and includes three ballads written by Cuthrie which are competently performed but largely unimaginative. “Last Train” takes the theme of many old spirituals of being on the train bound for glory. “Cowboy Song” provides the concrete expression Cuthrie’s state of mind: ’ This here is the only thing I know It ain’tright and it ain’t wrong To hear a cowboy sing an old time song. Most of the alblum is presented in a low key style that is easy to take. The cuteness of the “Pickle Song” all early Cuthrie is fortunately gone. There is one bad lapse in At-lo’s “Cooper’s Lament” which is Arlo’s getting all the people in the world together again s’ong. The triteness of the lyrics and the over instrumentalization make it easy to ignore. Cuthrie has shown himself to have a feeling and appreciation for old music on this and other albums. Whether he can draw this into his own music remains to be seen. deanna kaufman

this finale should compare it with the great Chaconne which is the last movement of l3rahms’ Fourth Symphony.] The second haif of the program was given over to the Symphony No. 8 of Dvorak (formerly number 4, that being the order of publication). This is another wonderful piece, combining as perhaps no other (well, except the Beethoven Pastorale, of course) a thoroughly sunny and happy outlook with mastery of form and subtlety, even profundity of expression. The many glorious melodies were sustained pretty well by our forces, with particular kudos for the brass-hats off to the two trumpets who so forthrightly announced the opening of the fourth movement, for instance. Also I was pleased to find some genuine pianissimo string playing; to do this and remain listenable is a challenge which had not, to my recollection, been taken up last year, let alone met. (As the orchestra improves in this respect, one of my ancient bugbears will rear its ugly head: pianissimo strings get competition from the air-moving equipment in the theatre, improvement though it be by comparison with its beastly counterpart over there in the Arts theatre.) In sum; a concert to whet our appetites for more; and, by the way, to loosen, perhaps, the purse-strings of the wellheeled among us. The Orchestra is thirsting now for better things-one such thing being, incidentally, the retention of our fine conductor I am sure; and better things cost money. (Surely it is time to begin thinking vaguely of acquiring a good resident string quartet to help matters out in the string department, for instance? The Hamilton Symphony attests to the improvement such measures can effect. e.g.) In a month, we will have the National Arts Centre Orchestra on the series to show us what a smallish orchestra can really do-my mouth waters, for example, at the prospect of hearing the Bartok Divertimento for String Orchestra, which they promise. Meanwhile, the K-W is decorating Oktoberfest with various tidbits by J. Strauss, von Suppe, Dvorak again, and others over at WLU on the %h, . 10th, and 12th. And they’ll be back in another regular concert on December 8 and 9 with some music from Swan lake and-wow! - Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.

Short symphonic notes

Preamble, Symphonic Ode, Orchestral Variations, Aaron Copland, composer and conductor, London Symphony Orchestra. Columbia M31714 -a real ho-hummer. Although these works belong to the more severe end of Copland’s creative range, they avoid the common use of dissonance and formlessness which are so destructive to a works appreciability, so the first impression here is not a bad one. The trouble is that no further impression is made. There are no real melodies -‘or really anthing to arouse interest. These pieces simply begin, continue and end and nothing happens. This doesn’t make them bad efforts necessarily though it certainly doesn’t make them good. What it does is make them very boring. Delius; .Paris, Song of a Great City; Eventyr; Dance Rhapsody No. 1; Charles Groves conductor The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic -containing a wide spectrum of Delius’ style, this new release ranges from the wilds of darkest impressionism in ‘Paris’ to Brahmsian lushness of melody in the Rhapsody. This particular orchestra is not too common to records and comes across here as too straight-forward. I felt the overall performance lacked that bit of dramatic flair which could have added beneficial punch and depth to the music. As well Angel’s recording and pressing leave something to be desired. Bass is clouded by rumble. Surface noise is very evident, Nonetheless, for those, interested in the music itself, which is bery entertaining, there is no choice since no alternate performance is available. J.G.

and r&k The Progressives ( Columbia KG 31574) presents -14 groups whq pretty well cover the spectrum from artists fully approved of by jazz purists to groups who have been heavily influenced by rock and other forms; and have gained a following outside-the rather closed fraternity of jazz -< fans. Obviously meant,by Columbia to be a “taster” for non-jazz fans, it serves ttiat purpose passably well. The variety-from Ornette Coleman’s discordantly quiet “The Men Who Live in the White House/Love Life” through the frenetic “Compost Festival” by Compost to the moody “You Know You Know” by John McLaughlin and . the Mahavishnu Orchestra-gives any rock fan who is thinking of venturing over the ever-thinner line bet/ween rock and jazz a good sampling of what’s going on qn tthe other side. The album’s musicians carry good ct+dentials, and form an impressive family tree from aU the intertwining backgrounds-For instance, bf the performers. McLaughlin, Composts’ Jack D&ohnette, *Weather Beport’s Joe Zawinal and Wayne Shorter, pianists Keith Jarrett and Bill ’ -Eva?s, h&e all played in the Miles Davis ‘group at one time or another, among other stops alorig the way. ., .’ Alsoinctuded on the two-record set are Don Ellis, Paul Winter, Paul Horn, Gentle i _-Giant, Mathcing Mole, Walter Carlos, Soft ‘- Machine and Charles Mingus. Speaking of the , much-discussed marriage between ,jazz and rock, such an unlikely- wedding takes place on a new Columbia LP com’bining the guitar talents of Mc,Laughlin atid Carlos Santana, Love Devotion Surrender .( KC 32034). Not only does Santana aspire to be taken ,seriously as an improvisational musician, but-at least on the evidence of . th’e albuti cover-he hag %alst, cIi.nibed onto McLaughlin’s ‘spiritual bandwagon. There the two of them are, big-as life and dressed‘ all in white, looking contented and at peace with it all, possessed of some inner calm you and I can never know; while, between them sit.s or stands McLaughlin’s adopted guru, Sri Chinmoy, who also offers a moving sermon on the Nature of Life as the LP’s- line; notes. Well, if you can get past that sort of 3 r nonsense, there is good music to be found inside. Santana began drifting towards McLaughlin’s brand of music with Buddy Miles, and then w,ith his band’s latest album, Cartivanserai, and things converge nicely here with a littIC! help from McLaughlin’s friends-notably Larry’Young on organ and the impresske Billy Cobham on drums. The results, including a fine re-interpretation of John Coltrane’s and his beautifully “A Love Supreme” serene masterpiece “Naima”, will please Mahavishnu followers more than Santana’s, but deserve listen by both. l

Three blind men

De Chelderode wrote this short piece, (The Blind Men) in 1933, inspired by “The Parable of the Breughel’s painting, l3lind Men”. (A reproduction is on display in the Theater Gallery.) Briefly, the plot concerns three blind men who convince themselves that they are near Rome, the goal of their pilgrimage. When a one-eyed man informs them that he has watched them travelling in circles nowhere near Rome, they reject both his information and his offer of aid, and promptly fall into a bog he has warned them about. De Chelderode’s fascination with church music shows at the first with an expressive flute and church thymes played sensi tively together and conti nuing during the chanting entrance of the three \ pilgrims. All three possessed a forcefulness of delivery which was impressive technically but seemed incongruous with their presumably fatigued state. Also, this strength of the ‘deluded’ characters seemed a challenge to the actual reality represented by the more toned-down performance of the one-eyed man. Pareffective were the anxious ticularly gropings of the blind men over the stage steps, and the large expressive hands of the oldest pilgrim as he twisted his staff in search of meaning that his eyes could not perceive. I found the play mildly entertaining on the surface, and allowed myself some searching for symbolic significance to enrich he experi ence. There seemed to be a brief dialectic here between Truth and Fantasy-fantasy manifested in the blind men’s stubborn belief that they are near Rome when they are actually near their starting point. They are so trapped in this delusion of hope that they imagine the,mseIves ‘seeing’ the dome of St. Peter. They deny even the reality of their blindness. Truth is personified in the one-eyed man, who reveals their error. Still the blindmen persist with- their fallacy. Finally Truth is the victor in the “stark reality of death”. Had they accepted liis words, they would have received food, shelter, and protection instead of death. One could thus infer t:lat blindness to reality is more pervasive a flaw than mere blindness of visibn. -Peggy ea rle

and now here’s ... In the midst of political strife in some of the federation’s favourite countries, political scandal in some of the Administration’s favourite countries, and watery beer in some of the local pubs, some people still refuse to take anything seriously. If you’re one of those people, you’ll probably feel right at home in Fass this year. For those of you who don’t know what Fass is- it’s hard to explain. Some look upon it as a Christian version of your basic Roman orgy. Margaret Mead has remarked upon its similarities to New Cuinean puberty rites. Fabs people themselves still insist that it’s an amateur theatrical group whose purpose is to take a satirical look at the‘ University of Waterloo. Whatever it is, Fass is back this year, repainted, reupholstered, and with an oil change, getting ready for a week of harmless lunacy in February, and you (yes, even you), are invited to join. We need’

people for writing, acting, advertising, and technical work, for this years show. Everybody is welcome. The only things you need are enthusiasm and a note from your mother. Talent-or the lack of itis n-o problem. If you want to meet some fantastic people, have a lot of fun on and off stage, and take a few potshots at things that bug you about the university, come on to the general meeting on Thursday, October 18, at 730 p.m., in the Theatre’of the Arts. Particularly if you’re new on campus, Fass is a great way to meet guys and girls, so we’d love to see you. Party Afterwards.

(Thank god she’s not a typical female!) Her level of toleration towards the two men is increased for the simple reason that theygre working towards a common goal, and it is obvious, even to the brave heroine, that singlehandedly, she has no hope of fending off the villainous oil company. The result a partnership is formed. Now that you know the basic plot, the outcome can be easily determined.

low b Unless you are extremely desparate, stay away from the Capitol Theatre until the showing of Oklahoma Crude has reached a merciful termination. There are several ways to describe “waste”, but to make it easier for you, as well as for this particular reporter, I’ll simply rename the picture Oklahoma Crap! This is rather unfortunate when one considers the misuse of the fine acting ability that was available courtesy of the film’s headliners, George C. Scott and Faye Dunaway. Neither performer requires an introduction to moviegoers, but it is a safe assumption that Oklahoma - - will definitely not be remembered as a highlight in either career. In all fairness to the flick’s promoters, bear with me for a brief description of the plot. Ready? The story takes place in the early years of the twentieth century with casual mention of the Spanish American war of 1898. The bulk of the action occurs on a typical prairie plain, typically found in ‘good ole’ Oklahoma’. It is the age of the oil-well craze and therefore, the age of ambitious settlers ‘aimin” to make it rich. Not only do these settlers have to fight off Mother Nature and fate throughout their endeavours, they must also fight off the exploitation attempts of the established oil companies. In this particular tale, the ambitious settler is portrayed in the character of Lena, ‘a man-hating, guntoting’ female who refuses to sign over her plot of land to Pan-Oklahoma, the evil oil

here is even more obvious; lastly, innocent settlers versus cruel corporationQuestion-Will justice prevail? Will fate smite down-on our weary settlers and grant them with an oil strike? You don’t have to tune in next week to solve the mysterybut, there is one unexpected curve thrown in by Producer/Director Stanley Kramer near the end which is not in line with the rest of this typical movie. Concerning the controversy over the picture’s title-one gets the feeling that Kramer must have intended Crude to be taken in its most inelegant sense. The constant use of profanity seems to be the movie’s last resort in securing ‘laughs’ from the audience. Also, depending upon your appreciation of slap-stick humour, there are a few instances-such as, a naked man running with blood spouting from his buttocks after being hit with buckshot, and again, when one man holds another at gunpoint while the former urinates on the latter’s expensively tailored overcoat. These are comical, yet not to the point of hilarity, but even these scenes are somewhat limited. They appear to be a desparate attempt at holding the picture toget her. George C. Scott as the hired-hand needs to fall back on his highly reputable past and its memorable characterizations to carry off this role as Mace. His female counterpart, Lena, under the guise of Faye Dunaway, originally presents herself as an out-spoken, bad-mouthed renegade who almost too conveniently transforms into an understanding woman, complete with ample warmth and passion. The supporting cast of John Mills and jack Palance, playing the father and chief villain respectively, make a valiant attempt, especially Mills, ,to regenerate the movie’s dying pace. Eventually they seem to realize that the die has been cast beyond salvation. Admission to Oklahoma Crude is 82.25. With that money I suggest that you buy twenty-five ice-cream cones or nine draft beer or two hundred and twenty-five ‘doubles bubbles’ or -beckey

Tony van Bridge’s special student matinee as C.K. Chesterton, could tiardly be billed, in the interest of accuracy, as a matinee at all. It lasted barely an hour. The performance was obvioulsy designed as a separate package for a high school audience and bore little relationship to the evening performance. However, despite this shortcoming van Bridge’s charm and wit pleased everyone. His casual, relaxed style and obvious enthusiam for Chesterton commanded a warm response from the audience. It is always interesting, an-d particularly to the new theatre-goer, to see how an actor prepares for a performance. This van Bridge did with panache and good humour. The stage became for this purpose, a dressing room. With the assistance of a dresser, van Bridge grew in size, shaped his face, changed his coloring, donned wig and eyebrowsliterally converted himself into the visual image we have of Chesterton from his famous photograph. The actor’s challenge in this kind of reading-performance is to establish two illusions of reality. The first is simply that CKC is reading his short story The Blue, Cross. The second is‘ more difficult and involves a shift from Chesterton as narrator on stage to the other characters and another locale. The hero of the The Blue Cross is Father Brown, the priest-detective who is perhaps Chesterton’s most popular character. He comes in contact with the most colorful people and it appears to be an effortless accomplishment for van Bridge to turn dialogue into character. Van Bridge’s reading leaves little to be desired. It is only surprising that the programme did not offer more substance. One short story and one short poem was little indeed. The audience was as uncertain as the house staff when the performance ended. It took a phone call from the box office and a certain delay to confirm that it was really over. The price of the tickets for this performance is open to question. Student tickets for the expanded evening performance were one dollar and fifty cents. This special student mini-performance was actually higher priced, by far, at a dollar a ticket. A matinee with a qualifying description such as ‘special or ‘student’ is not the same performance as is being offered in the evening. Students should make a few enquiries as to content before purchasing them in future. -irene

Federation flicks Hickey and Boggs-a surprisingly satisfyihg and realistic mystery-adventure starring Robert Culp and Bill Cosby of “I Spy”, which was one of TV’s more intelligent and entertaining series. Here they present the other side of the same characters: a little older, bitter and disillusioned. All in all, a damn near perfect movie. Dot-Stacy Keach does his thing and Faye Dunaway plays Faye Dunaway again in a mediocre film which can be justified when J placed on a double bill with a better flick, like here.

TryingI ’ -to find /the

/

’ I\, cheap

stuff In a random survey of 39 different foodstuffs, -the prices between all the stores only varied, at the extremes of the scale, by two dollars and thirty cents. ‘Therefore. deciding where to buy your groceries should not be dependant so much on costs, but rather the quality of service that the store provides. So, although the stores would like you

to think that only , thev ,. provid le the really .true discounts in food, the survey points. out that in fact the differences are not great at all. There is no ‘deep discount price’, or any place where economy really ‘originates. CertainIv this survey , isn’t terribly scientific but it can be used as a good ir ldicator of the way prices are tending

/’

Of all theeitems checked only three had consistent prices at every store, compared to last year when only milk prices were the same all across the board. This year bread, milk and surprisingly, mushrooms all held the line. The prices for bread and milk are apparently set by the bakeries and dairies respectively and the stores are content to abide by these prices. Therefore; the difference in prices must have been among the other items on the list., The prices did in fact vary grossly among the stores. :A single item would jump anywhere from one cent to fifty cents between stores. But then they would make it up on some other item that the first store would have priced outrageously. Zehr’s at the junction of Weber and King Sts in Waterloo, had their sunkist oranges marked at $1.50 for one dozen, where every one else had the price down around 90 cents with the lowest price being at the Hiway Market (King St E in Kitchener) a mere 79 cents It is interesting to note that this in fact is ,a drop over their price last year-98 cents for one dozen. Trying to make up for this price outrage, Zehr’s marked their hamburg at 96 cents a pound. That was cheaper than anywhere else.with the highest price being sl.09 at WEO. All the stores made up for their high prices by irrationnally cutting a price somewhere else. No store cut prices consistently enough for it to effect their profit margin or your budget. Examining the table you might notice that only two stores were carrying ordinary white- rice, and that these stores had increased their price a ’ substantial amount. Rice is not going to be any easier to find and it is not going-to get any cheaper. There has been massive flooding in Thailand:9 main source of milled rice. Also, Louisiana and Texas, two other sources of rice were hit -by hurricanes earlier this year that destroyed their entire crop. ’ In connection with this, the soya bean crop was also wiped out at the same time in the southern united states and that put an end to the soya burger that had appeared on the meat counters earlier this summer. And more good news, which is that the pastas that students and many other folks have been depending on fora cheap filler,

has also come in for rough times-. There is apparently some difficulty with the hard wheat crop and that has caused a severe shortage of those valuable pastas. Another culprit in the whole,matter is .the person that hoards’ such anitem or buys it up in huge quantities. So this is going to cause, in fact has already caused the prices of pastas to increase a giant-sized 300 percent. _ The Italian goverments solution to this problem is to suggest that they repeal the law forbiding the production of pasta out of soft wheat and start making the Italian pasta out of- this wheat. Italians are un,derstandably upset-pasta made out of soft wheat turns, to glue when water is added which is why softwheat was outlawed in the first place. . Returning to this country thinking about which store is the most interesting and fun to shop in since you do have to shop, the considered opinions of those that did this survey-is that Hiway Market is the winner in, this catagory. However, it is not the winner in the cheap food catagory. The old wooden floors and the mixing of food with dry goods in the aisles adds a certain oldfashioned air to the place and softens your heart a little when you are prone to become upset at the cost of shoppingzanywhere. For those to whom it would-make adifference, Dutch Boy, Dominion and Zehrs all continue to carry Dare products despite the fact that Dare is producing his cookies by scab labour and the legitimate workers are still on strike. These stores have ignored the boycott called ‘by the strikers and endorsed by the Ontario Federation of Labour. Also, along the same vein, most stores manage to provide an alternative to most Kraft products-except the grated /cheese and the salad dressings. Dominion does carry another brand of grated cheese but you have to search it out very thoroughly. This, again, is despite the boycott called against Kraft by the National Farmers Union. So try to remember it all. WE0 and their “no expensive frillsjust .wild warehouse prices; Zehrs and their gold star . stamps; Dominion and their deep discount prices”; Highway Market with their nice soft touch. Don’t fool yourself into thinking there is any %way you can possibly save money -that is not why they are in the business.

nationahzation of the Kirkuk fields, the $Libyan discussion of 50 percent participation immediately and the recent+ Iranian agreements, which effectively extend the operations of Western oil companies in Iran to, 1994. The new ’ agreement of principle transfers “control” ’ of the oil to the Iranian government, through a purchase sales contract which gives members of the Western oil consortium a continuing right to crude production within their areas. L -

,/

Though it appears that the new agreementchanges little in fact, it is designed to give the appearance of in- ’ creased Iranian control of petroleum reserves, in response to advances by other ( producing’ nations. , The net result of these steps is certainly ’ going to greatly increase the revenue of *’ producing nations, but it remains to be seen exactly how much control will in fact rest with the governments of producing nations. At the very least, it indicates the steady -‘erosion of the control that the ’ seven oil monopolies once had on the world’s crude petroleum reserves. At best, the recent steps taken by producing nations reflect the growing unrest, of Arab and Iranian peo’ples not only with Zionism and U.S. imperialism, but with the regressive regimes which rule at home. The movement of producing governments toward, greater control over . petroleum resources cannot be explained I ’ by the “good will” or simple progressive tendencies of these leaders, but in fact reveals the growing struggle within the. Gulf and‘ entire Middle East of the < students, poor and working people for self’ determinination. With the rise of the I~ Palestinian resistance groups, the victory of the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen in 1967, the formation of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Oman , and the Arab Gulf (PFLOAG) in 1971 (which already controls 90 percent of Dhofar),. and the growing student ’ movements in Iran and Egypt, the regimes of most oil;producing countries have been obliged ’ to take certain . progressive steps. These steps so far change little in terms of actual control over oil production, but , they should not be underestimated. They . have cut deeply into the position and profits of U.S. imperialism in the Gulf. For, the major companies, the rate of return on net investments Iin the Eastern Hemisphere has declined from 18.2, percent in 1957 to 11.2 percent in-1970. In. general, the petroleum industry has fared poorly in terms of profit returns in recent * years. A recent Fortune Magazine article ’ depicted _the petroleum industry as’ the . worst of 10 industries in comparison of : e----Y return sales between 1966 and 1972. The monopolies are correct in their -. claims that the direction of the “present OPEC demands will in time spell the end of U.S.. domination of the resources and people of the Middle East. This is critical to understanding the present “energy crisis”. Part of the pr=osed solution for U.S. imperialism is to consolidate the large companies’ hold over fuels and markets, by purchasing large interests in alternative fuels and by ,forcing out the smaller independents.‘ Concerned over the emergence of -national liberation struggles in the Gulf and the insecurity of the Arab-Israeli ’ - _ conflict, the monopolies ‘have in recent years intensified their search for other petroleum reservesaround the world, particularly in southern Africa, Nigeria, Ecuador, Peru, - Brazil, and Southeast Asia. Petroleum ‘investment ill the AsiaPacific Region between 1970-85. is . estimated at $61 billion alone. In each case, the penetration of U.S. oil ’ iinterests has brought wi.th it resistance by nationalist and revolutionary forces in. 1 . those countries and the growing , possibility of expropriation or military confrontations. . / i-1 /

Living in a harsh environment with limited resources, each Qolla family works its own plot of land,and cooperation ,is rat-e. Friendship bonds are fiagile, and even within families, contention and suspision are normal. Arguments, I’name-calling and aggressive behaviour of all kinds, including murder, are commonplace. The method employed by the Qolla in circumventing their somewhat disruptive social practices is a custom c&d tawanku, a curious form of group marriage serving to reduce- the widespread sexual and economic insecurity which is standaid. in that society. As anthropologists Ralph and Charlene Bolton describe it, tawanku begins with an agreement between two husbands: “The usual procedure for the men is to settle upon a d&e when $1 four persons can, get together, to.. .become drunk. After they have gotten the two women completely inebriated they all go tobed in the same room, each man taking the other’s wife to one sid&of the hut. Following intercourse, the two couples remain together to- sleep for the night. In the morning 4he women discover what has happened. In the ensuing discussion the men .convince the women that they should becom’e tawan ku partners .“m Tawanku relationships often continue for years, and frequently a -Iifetibe.

They cheat on exams Salmon may be smarter than you think, and unless you have an unusually inflated conception of the fish’s intellectuattapacities, they-probably are. . Atlantic salmon authority Wilfred Carter has revealed that there are indications that the game-fish has definite built-in navigational aids. These myst&ibus aids enable the salmon to return to their spawning grout-ids after years of growing up in i deep ocean waters. Fish biologists believe that the tasty marine-dwelier may be . using a n3vigati_onal code which is mathematical, electrical or chemical, or perhaps a combination of all three.. One local salmon, now serving on’ the executive of the fedemtion OT students, disagreed with the reports, stating that they werebased on what could only be regarded, as the flimsiest of’ scientificevidence. “As far as 1%~ concerned,” he went on, “salmon are -just as stupid as people have always believed them to be.” .

Japan is cGiretit-ly exi periencing a backlash of environmentalist feeling which puts North American reaction to pollution in a relatively shameful light. In a recently-conducted survey in Tokyo, 4dper cent of 2,500 respondents believed that “the occurrence of pollution is absolutely impermissible even for the sake of industrial development”. Another 13 per cent considered it an “endurable necessity”. In 1966 responses measured’only 27 per cent in the former category, with 29 per cent in the latter.

Our ‘problem in meeting the postulated demand for this type of material has historically arisen from the general lack of expertise among chevron staffers ‘in matters scientific. In the past two issues we have depended primarily on material culled from outside sources, including two feature length articles from New Scientist. This is a practice we would like to do away -with as far as possible, in favour of features generated. within this university, by people whose scientific background qualifies the-m to speak of such matters in some wise authoritatively, which is where the imbalance in the interests and talents of our present staff becomes crucial.

This question is -badly ‘in need of examination, yet is virtually ignored outside of armchair discussion.

DO YOU believe there are no physiological or anatomical reasons why women should not participate in the same sports as men? If you do, then you can consider yourself as having a fairly “liberated” view. The belief is still widespread, even among people who should know better, that certain sports are suitable for women and girls while others are not because they are supposed to involve the kind of stresses which will permanently damage the reproductive organs and breasts. This, some people say, jeopardizes Her “primary function” in life. Women are usually barred from contact sports such as football, hockey and soccer for this reason. Yet basketball and field hockey are considered “suitable”. One wonders whether perhaps a new definition is required of what constitutes a “contact sport”. In track and field women are not yet allowed to compete in the triple jump or the pole vault, yet are permitted to long and high jump. One does not have to be a track and field expert to realize that the physical stresses involved ’ are quite similar. Furthermore, the advent of the foam pit has considerably reduced the shock of landing, even if this were really a problem; most knowledgeable people now realize that it is not. No more than for men, anyway. Women are not yet given competition longer than 1500 meters at the Olympics (and this event itself was not introduced until 1972). Yet many women, some of them mothers, have been competing in marathons for years without special problems. More and more girls are playing baseball, hockey and soccer, apparently without injury to their reproductive organs. Women also compete in Moto-cross (crosscountry motor c.ycling) and skidiving ! hot dogging 1 without special to reports of injuries women. These events produce stresses and shocks which are extremely heavy. Granted, the ladies suffer the same injuries as the men. Dr. C.H. McCloy makes the following observation in his report, A study of landing ping for women:

of

the

shock

in jum-

“Dr. R.H. Paramore, who has experimented extensively in this field, has called attention to the additional fact that the uterus is surrounded by structures of practically the same specific gravity as itself, and thus it normally has no air spaces around it. Thus, it floats in a miniature pool of pelvic viscera, just as it might, if detached, float in a jar filled to the brim with water. “Such a body suffers only such shock as occurs within itself and does not fly violently through the fluid when shaken. This can easily be proven by placing a raw egg in a liter jar filled to ,the brim with

water and then securing the lid in such a way as to exclude all air. No degree of violent handling that does not smash the jar will injure the egg.” . Our internal organs are well protected by this built-in cushion which acts as a shock absorber, minimizing any blow which might be transmitted to the organs. Not so’ for the male. It is the male’s reproductive organs which should be a source of concerntheir external location, devoid of any protection whatsoever, leaves them vulnerable to damage. The real point is not what is likely to happen to whom, but what the individual’s interests and attitudes are. These are what should dictate which .sports are suitable for women and girls-not antiquated beliefs about hypothetical dangers, or silly social customs. Let’s not underestimate the physical capabilities of women. Remember the physical strength a woman needs to work on a farm, run a house, look after children and-most of all-to have children. In many countries, women are required to till the fields, chop wood and work on roads. These activities are not too strenuous for the female. Neither should certain sports which many women and girls would thoroughly enjoy. Sociological sanctions should not be confused with physiological limits as far as sport is concerned. And frankly, most of the sociological sanctions are pretty silly, too. Dr. Tenley E. Albright, a Boston surgeon, says : “Doors are continuing to open for women in sports, and the limit should be what the girl sets for herself. The safeguards are pretty well built in.” roberta angeloni

Imported European sport is an imported European sport that is a “natural” for the multitudes who now enjoy walking and running outdoors as a method of keeping fit. It incorporates all those activitiesplus the exciting element of competitive navigating. It’s just beginning to catch on in Canada-there are about 1,000 devotees across the country-but in most of Europe it’s big. An orienteering competition in Sweden, for example, is likely to att_ract several thousand participants. Whole families take part. Perhaps this is a reflection of general fitness levels. The average Swede of 60, it has been said, is as fit as the average Canadian of 30. The great thing about this sport is that it provides opportunities for participation no matter what your age or fitness level. It is divided into levels of difficulty which match any physical capacity. This is one reason for its popularity in countries which place value on participation in sport rather than watching. A novice orienteer normally runs a course of about a mile in search of four or five control markers which have been placed on prominent terrain features in advance. A map and a compass are tied around his wrist to aid him in his navigation between control points. ORIENTEERING

Choices The course setter is likely to locate controls in such a way that there are several route choices between control points with the

October

5, 1973

direct line route often the least effective one to follow. Intelligent map reading is essential to orienteering as is the ability to read a compass accurately. The map will indicate creeks, hills, roads, etc. so that the participant can ascertain whether he is physically able to cope with the route he chooses. As the novice gains in skill he tackles increasingly more difficult courses until he reaches the elite level. The orienteer competing at the elite level should be able to run several miles at a steady pace with no difficulty and have, a very good understanding of advanced map and compass reading. At the outset of a meet each participant reports to the scorer’s table and decides which course matches his ability. He is then issued with a map and control card with a verbal description of each marker’s exact location. After receiving the “go” signal, he proceeds to the “master map area” where he locates the master map for the course he has chosen and carefully marks the location of the control markers on his own map.

Clocking

,

in ’

Once he has reached the first control point, and has decided that it coincides with the one described, he punches his control card in the proper square. Each punch has a symbol peculiar to the control point it represents., Now the participant quickly turns his attention to control number two. Time is of the essence in competition. At the finish line, each participant turns in his fully completed control card to officials for time computation. Many orienteering enthusiasts do not have the inclination to compete and their participation falls only within the realm of recreation. They navigate whichever course they choose at their own pace. The sport of orienteering can be practiced by the whole family as well as by individuals of both sexes in every age group.

-

Participation Orienteering is definitely not a spectator sport; it can only be enjoyed by participation. Jack Lee, president of the Ontario Orienteering Association, was introduced to the sport when he was attending McMaster University . Information was handed out to the students describing two offbeat sports and the one that intrigued him was orienteering. Through a friend who had track and field contacts he received an invitation to attend an orienteering clinic at the University of Guelph given by Professor A. Sass Peepre in 1966. Now Jack Lee is at the elite level of orienteering. Ontario seems to be the hub of orienteering activity in Canada. “There are presently 500 active members. In the fall we expect to double that number”, says Lee. esther articles reprinted

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie .kt 2thru 8 directed by Luis Bunuel 1972 “In describing the peregrinations of six characters in search of a hot din,ner, tjunuel has achieved a perfect synthesis of surreal wit and blistering social assault. To the extent that its characters hover elusively between metaphor, symbol, stereotype and illusion, The DiscJeet Chprm of the Bourgeoisie‘is literally a black comedy of manners, of a formulary politeness which assimilates the most bizarre and indiscreet occurrences to its own inflexible forms. The tredtment is perhaps more outrageously anarchic than ever before, but the old anarchist also imp,licitly acknowledges his powerlessness to alter the complex forms-social, artistic, and political-which provoke and nourish his displeasure.” *Jan Dawson, B.F.I.

“One of my dreams was to have team personnel who during the game in both offensive and defensive situations, would be complete/y alert and ready to react to each situation at maximum speed and with full - intent to make their moves wok This, of course will always remain just a dream since athletes invariably have soft spots in their attention /eve/s-they make several great moves,and then tend to ride it a little. However, this is the great coaching challenge: to continue the never. ending search to motivate and drill the football player so that he gives every play his maximum concentration and effort.” Anute fockne 7930

Warribrs -weep

_

Despite the fact that this year’s Warriors were depending on their defence to add some stability to the team, the defence for the second time -in a row allowed the opposition to score two early touclidowns. The opposition this time was a powerful Lutheran team, and the final score was 38-7 in favour of the Hawks. _ Down 26-l at half time the Warriors came back to make a respectable showing in the second half, only to be outscored 13-6. The Warriors showed their potential in a series of plays near the end of the third quarter which led to their only touchdown. The Warriors offence managed a net gain of only ten yards on the ground, but managed to accumulate eightytwo yards in the air. Lutheran’s totals were 282 and -139 respectively . Tomorrow the Warriors will have a chance to make up for their previous feeble showings, when _they travel to Toronto to challenge the University of Toronto Blues. This year’s Blues could have the most potent offence in the nation. -They currently lead the O.U.A.A. statistics in the offensive yardage gained. Much of the offensive power comes from the throwing arm of quarterback Wayne Dwnkley. Dunkley leads the league in passing yardage and according to Warrior coach Delahey , is the best in the nation and his three receivers are in the top ten. The Warriors will be hurting because of the loss of their leading ‘rusher who will be out for several weeks with a separated shoulder. An improved pass rush on defence and improved blocking on the part of the offence are rough spots that

will be worked on during - this week’s practices. “We’re hungry for a victory” quoted coach Delahey, who still, maintains that the Warriors can hit the 500 mark this season. Let’s hope the Warriors don’t die of starvation before the end of the season. -mike

Rugger ’ relics On Wednesday, September 26, the Warrior and Trojan rugger teams met their counterparts from Both McMaster University. Waterloo teams won with scores of 23-11 and 6-O respectively. The Warriors’ game started off with much forward ground play with the Waterloo strum pushing up and into McMaster’s end zone repeatedly . In rugby the ball must be touched down to the ground for a and as happened Wedscore, nesday the referee usually awards a five yard s&urn to the defending side if the ball is not clearly touched down. The Trojans’ game had both teams quickly up on the ball with much crowded running in the middle. The ball seldom got to the outside to the wingers for the quick run. Les Kirkland playing inside centre scored the only try for the Trojans and Mike Westly converted it. Two home games are in the offing, with the Warriors hosting the University of Western Ontario here tomorrow, and then they host Brock here on Tuesday. Home games start at three o’clock and are played on Columbia field. -ken

V2 North found the winning touch in their second game winning a squeaker over Vl North-l-O. St. Jeromes made it two wins in a row with a 1-O victory over Vl West. In last weekend’s action the annual Ring Road Race again took place with no deaths occurring although PUC buses travellingthe opposite direction on the Ring Road caused some concern. Conrad Grebel was victorious with a time * of 17 minutes 41 seconds. Grebel was led by Chris MacMillan whose lap of four minutes 10 secbnds was the fastest of the day. Also representing Conrad Grebel were Peter Shen, Evan’ Miller and Mario Festival. Placing second was an independent team consisting of D. Hisza of Village 2 West, K. Peltsch of Village 1 East. P. Morton of Village 1 South and N. Jacob of Village 1 South. Their time was 17 minutes 56 seconds. Finishing a very cIose third, only two seconds behind were Village 1 South made up of Glenn Wing, Steve Dondale, Mark Gray and Mike Apheldt . Biting the dust as usual were the St. Jeromes B team who must be given credit for just being able to avoid the buses that were given the right of weight. Fifth place went to St. Jeromes A team. Setting the pace for the A team was John Mulvihill whose record slow was 5.31 must have been due in part to his stopping at the Health Centre for some l vitamin pills.

fairly well, the only problem being that six contestants failed to appear. The tournament was a championship-consolation tournament with first place to Debbie Hayes of St. Jeromes, second place to Linda Springer of Monota Hagey and third place to Carol Copeland. Congratulations girls ! With-October here and the great “cool” weather approaching flag football continues. Wednesday, September 26 was a great day for the tough competition of VI South vs. Renison. Pat Thacker of South managed to penetrate Renison’s strong defensive line and score the only touchdown of the game giving VI South the victory. Lakeshore and VI North headed each other on in the second game. Lakeshore fought a hard battle, only to have Judy Buchanan receive a “long boom” and score the only touchdown thus clinching the victory for VI North. V2 North have really been practicing lately and it seems to be paying off. They defeated V2 East, 12-O. Their quarterback Kelly Bailey executed a perfect pass to Deb Adams who scored their first six points. The final touchdown was scored on an interception by Lucie Krotenko. ’ Monday’s games went really well. VI West was scheduled to play Renison, but won by default. Lakeshore and Conrad Grebel were evenly matched finishing the game in a O-O tie. St-;- Jeromes vs. V2 West proved to be very interesting having St. Jeromes win 12-o. The touchdowns were scored by Ev Renier and “Mouse” Durrer on accurate passes from their quarterback. -The kicking part of football was introduced when Janice Crago kicked a one pointer for VI North in the final play of the game, giving them the victory over V2 North. St. Paul’s defeated V2 East, 7-O. St. Paul’s touchdown was scored by the great receiving and running abilities of Marg McSween. By this time of the yea&, everyone is ready to do something new-and exciting play a new game never before played squaliball. That’s right and as the name suggests its volleyball in a doubles squash court. There are six players to a side with a volleyball and a volleyball. net but the catch is that the walls are in bounds. Sounds tricky doesn’t it but fun. So get .a group of kids together guys and girls and enter today. Friday 5 : 60 pm is your entry deadline. Two new clubs are being introduced this year. A gymnastics club which is in the introductory period and anyone interested should contact Sally Kemp text 3533 ) .

iotis - corrected I am writing to correct omissions made in the article “The why’s -of weight” printed in the September 21 issue of the chevron. The point concerning the relative calorie value of yogurt hinged oi a comparison between four ounces of, commercially flavoured sweetened yogurt (about 200 Cal.) and four ounces of two percent tik (@ kcal.) . Since Ontario yogurt is usually 7!made from 2 percent .milk, the calorie value of unflavoured .yogurt and two percent milk is similar. Thus plain yogurt is low-calorie compared to ,sweetened yogurt or pie, but four bun&s of skim milk is even lower (4Okcal.). The list of refeiencei promised in the article was omitted by mistake. I would like to include the referbnces here and encourage anyone who is- interested to write for the free booklet. The information is up to date and reliable:

Muslims throughout the world are celebrating the blessed month --of Ramadan, which commenced Friday, September 28. Fasting is one of those religious institutions which, although universally recognized, have had quite a new meaning introduced into them‘ by, the advent of Islam. Fasting was generally resorted to ‘~in times of sorrow and affliction, probably to appease any angry “deity” ;by the heathen. In Islam, fasting is enjoined for the mqral elevation of man and for his spiritual development. This object is made clear by the Holy Koran itself, where fasting is enjoined upon Muslims. Tl%e Holy Koran does not content itself. with simply enjoining the aoing of good and refraining from evil, but teaches man the ways by walking in which the tendency to evil in him can be suppressed and the tendency to good improved. Fasting is one of these means. Hence , fasting in Isiam does not simply imply abstaining from food, but also from every kind of evil.

To: A. Ram, Chairman, Board of Entertainment. After holding seven pubs (June 2ISept 7) which were open to all in the campus centre pubarea, I am very sorry to hear that you feel we are.a security risk for the - future. We have been in existence for almost three years and have only had one small incident of hassling in one pub : wnich was easily dealt .with. Obviously our clean record stands-for nothing in your estimation. I would like to express my concern over your fear of the type of people we attract to our pubs from downtown. We. have never asked you or anyone else to babysit

In a sudden fit of arrogant autocratic paranoia, Art Ram has decreed that the ‘Gay Liberation Club,on campus shall have no more campus pubs. No matter what reasons or rationalizations Ram can offer for this decision-and he has, some-the act constitutes nothing less than a blatant and ignorant discrimination based- on Ram’s own personal biases. .5. ( 1 - -Ram, as head of the federation’s board of entertainm&t, has made many singlehanded policy decisions since he was put in charge of the board-the “feds and ferns” pub-price-policy is the best and most flagrant example-while council and even Ram’s own board members’ have, sat quietly by. But the time has come to draw a line. Ram is obviously abusing the bureaucratic powers invested in his position; his job is to implement the will of the council and of the .students. The board of entertainment is the most visible part of the federation to the students-it purports to represent. As a representative of the council, Ram has failed entirely. Most of his decisions come to council’s attention only after they have gone .into effect and, even in the few cases in which his decisions have been questioned or deplored,by council, ’ Ram’s only reaction has been tothumb his nose at his fellow representatives. ’ The supposed rationalization for refusing Gay Lib any more campus pubs is that they are a security risk and might.attract “the wrong sort of,people” from off-campus. 1 __A lot of issues come into play here. For the fall term, Ram has resurrected a policy which has lain dormant the past few years -no club or organization other than a society can hold a pub on this campus without the “cooperation” of the federation of students. “Co-operation”here means that the federation must ,.hold the license, set prices, and supervise the pub., the issue now ,- So, when Gay Lib asked Ram for a -fall pub, he told them no. However, is&t as clear as that: he ‘did not tell them about the policy (that no club can hold-a pub), but that they are a “security risk”!‘ ’ Apparentlythe board of entertainment is held responsible for all damages incurred at / any pub Gay Lib would hold.- If that’ should happen, it could spoil ‘Ram’s dream of “going out with a bang”. ’ .--, The economic philosophy adopted.by the present council+f it makes money, it’s all righthas permeated the board of entertainment to such an extent that at its meeting this week members plotted to get money from-the students “while they’ve got it”. The feeling is that students)don’t mind paying four dollars a ticket (Guess Who last month and Lightfoot coming up) in the fall when they have more money; in the spring the federation can then sponsor a large free or super-cheap concert with money made off , us-in the past, have neverhad any trouble fall concerts, and everyone leaves campus thinking what a great federation it was. cwith those attending our functions, and In this light, it might be easier-to understand Ram’s warped reasoning about Gay Lib have always operated on a break even pubs -but such reasoning is still impossible to condone. point in our budget. What it is that you To single out Gay Lib from all the groups on campus wanting to run pubs as the group found guilty of abuse before it happens is an embarassingly tissue-thin excuse for fe:kb ’ as YOU Should be aware Ram’s own prejudice. _ , i ^ I homosexuals are an oppressed minority As attested to by Margaret Murray’s letter on. this/page, Gay Lib has not been guilty group, I feel doubly astounded that the of abusing pub privileges during themany pubs they have held; indeed, Ram does not _ Students’ Council deems it to be more even pretend to present evidence that they haveAl he puts forward is his own unimportant to be concerned with the ,founded,decision that they might inthe future abuse their privilege. 1 , Chilean government rather than with the The fact that Ram has, by himself and without-as much as consultation with the discrimination against fellow Canadian elected representatives of the federation which employs him, tried and convicted Gay ’ citizens which is going on right %nder Lib for future-crimes is an abuse of his decision-making powers which must be imtheir noses. mediately and forcefully dealt with by council.
