formulate a new ,system of intrauterine contraception. His method depended upon an anti-fertility material which would act locally within the uterine cavitj7 and a carrier for the material, which in itself would minimally disturb the *uterus. Zipper and his cohorts discovered that metallic copper would inhibit fertility when used locally within the cavity. In the form of an IUD it would provide a for prolonged efreservoir fectiveness. The use of copper for contraception is equivalent in concept to topical theory in other parts of the body. The drug copper is applied locally to the interior of the uterus. Although it is not clear how this trace of copper prevents pregnancy, it is believed to work by altering the functioq of the enzymes participating in the implantation process, and by destroying the sperm without harming th_e woman. From a study testing the biological action of copper Zipper concludes : “the introduction of this- concept of intra-uterine conception by our group has shown that it is possible to separate the efficacy of an IUD from dependence upon its size and surface area. Since certain side effects such as uterine cramping ‘and pain, spontaneous expulsion of the device and in some cases vaginal bleeding are also directly related to intra-uterine device size, it has also become possible to decrease the incidence of side effects while maintaining high contraceptive effectiveness.” Considerable testing and research of the Copper Seven has gone on now-for several years. The results seem impressive. A study conducted at King’s College Hospital in London, England found that “the use of a plastic intrauterine device as a delivery system for the active contraceptive agent (copper) was a major advance”. Moreover, they concluded that “the main advantages of the Copper-Seven over the classical intra-uterine device relate to -its ease of insertion, a very low incidence of menstrual disturbances in the first three months after insertion and a very low rate of removals for medical reasons.” The data in support of the claim is equally impressive. Insertion of the device proved to be easy in 85 percent of the women t&ted, with minor problems in nine ‘percent and difficulties in the remaining six percent. During the first three months after insertion side effects relating to menstruation decreased from 27 percent in the first month to three percent in the third. The first expulsion rates per 100 users was 6.67, the accidental rate pregnancy rate -1;08 and removals for medical reasons 2.95. Additional testing seems to support further claims. Patients followed up for more . than four years demonstrated no chemidal or physical damage as a, result of the copper. Its small- size, unique shape and flexibility allows the Copper Seven to be inserted without dilation of the cervix and usually with little or no discom@t to the woman. (The Cu-7 inserter .has diameter’ approximately onehalf that of inserters presently in use. > The data appears fairly conbincing but doctors warn that no method of contraception is foolproof and there is still much to be learned about the effects of the Copper Seven. Moreover, any intra-uterine devicg is a “foreign body” to _the human metabolism and as such they increase susceptibility to infections and make recovery more lengthy and difficult. .

adding, “It is suggested by some that this tragedy raises questions as to whether the United States should in this activity-1 \ submit that it proves how important it is for us to persevere in - this essential task.” r . ’ In 1970 Ford told the House that I “Idle talk about repression contributes nothing to the sober resolution of serious problems.” According to the House analysis of Ford’s voting record, “He has strongly supported ’ wiretapping,, preventive detention and no-knock legislation.” As for labour strikes, the House report St&es that “since 1967, at least, Ford is clearly on the side of government interventiorrin certain instances of strike.“. During the days of mass antiwar protests Ford stated, “I want the people who are interested in strong student unrest legislation to know that I am with them,” adding “we can handle student unrest proposals in the near future and we

F’ord, he and Melvin Laird, urged “To cut back on Congress domestic expenditures in order to meet <the growing expenses of the Vietnam war.” In August, 1967, Ford rose on-the House floor to make a major speech in which he labelled the Johnson Vietnam policy “@-win”. During that speech he urged increased use of air power and a blockade of Haiphong harbor. Appalled at what he said was a “that produced a present policy stalemate,” Ford blurted out: “Is this any way to run a war?” Ford describes himself as an “internationalist:’ on foreign policy, meaning he favors a strong US presence in the world. In 1970, when US Agency for International Development (AID ) official Dan Mitrione was kidnapped and executed by Tupamara guerillas in Uruguay for his role in teaching torture to Uruguayan police, Ford rose on the House floor to defend the activities of USAID in Latin America : “Indeed he (Mitrione) was trying to help the police assume their proper role in Uruguayan society .” said Ford,

corporations and the wealthy take advantage of. “I am opposed to wholesale ‘repeal of so-called tax loopholes,” adding that he would like to seesome already removed “put back on the books”. And showing that his constituency will differ little from Nixon’s, Ford complained, “Most members of Congress don’t realize the burdens that are placed upon business by the legislation they pass.” Fortune magazine, in March of * 1974 assured their readership that a Ford Presidency would not be the worst thing for them: “Nobody could call Gerald Ford “antibusiness’. The chief lobbyists for Ford Motor Company and US Steel are among his closest personal friends. He supported federal aid to bail out Lockheed. He feels that Richard McLaren, Nixon’s first antitrust chief, was ‘overzealous’ in his attempts to expand antitrust laws to cover conglomerates. ‘Bigness,’ said Ford, ‘is no sin’ “. I

Criminals and crime bosses would come under massive attack led by a Republican President sand.a Replican ‘Attorney General. ’ ._ Gerald Ford, J968 Summing it all up, and looking to will .with stronger provisions.” On May 25, 1969, he supported the future, Gardner Ackley a withholding financial aid to professor of political economy at ~ the University of Michigan, said of students involved in campus protests. And, after Washington Ford : “He is by nature conservative and I would be surprised police illegally rounded up if he has come up with a policy of thousands of demonstrators during May Day activities in 1971, Ford his own yet. . .In the absence of “I that, he’ll keep going with what went on record as saying, there is.” Certainly, Ford’s 25 congratulate the authorities \ for handling the situation as skillfully years in the House tell something of what to expect from the new as they have.” in dealing with aThough continually arguing to president cut domestic spending for lack of faltering economy: an attempt to funds, Ford argued long and hard stop inflation by cutting g?=rnin 1973 against a tax reform bill ment spending, particularly in the social weifare areas. that would plug loopholes that

must now search for new skeletons in the White House closets. The job will not be difficult. To hear most of those who have had contact with Gerald Ford speak, it would appear that his biggest vice is simply that he is faced with a job bigger than his Representative capabilities. Micheal J. Harrington (democrat-Mass.) once said of Ford:“He’s Simply a nice guy who has demonstrated no real capacity to govern. ’ ’ Referring to Ford’s football playing days, Lyndoh JohnSon said of the then House Minority Leader, “Too bad, too bad-that’s what happens when you play football without a helmet on.” And even Richard Nixon, the man that put Ford in the line for the Presidency, hoping _perhaps that it would stall impeachmentforces, exclaimed, “Can you see Gerald Ford sitting in this chair?”

According to the report on Ford’s congressional voting record prepared for the House Judiciary Committee considering Ford’s nomination as Vice President, “Ford’s position on minimum wage legislation has been fairly COnsistent . . .since 1949, he hasconsistently opposed measures proposing increases in the minimum wage.. .” Similarly, the report notes that “Ford opposed the establishment of the Food Stamp Program in 1964” and, in 1971, “Ford voted against an amendment to establish

While oil companies’ profits soar, so do their retail prices. Few people have managed to stay out of the price increases, all of us are feeling the pinch_either through higher gasoline prices or higher heating bills. In company advertisements and publicity the oil producers have excused their increased prices by claiming , increased costs, The public has no opportunity to question their explanations nor the background knowledge necessary to understand the processes and actions of the companies. The corporations do not explain themselves-it is not in their selfinterest to do so. They have the public where they want them, uninformed and needing oil. Tom Zeman, writing in the July Ramparts, attempted to* clear up some of the mystery surrounding oil refining and purchasing gasoline. An edited version of ( that article is reprinted here.

. Gasdine: I . -from-Ad $0 - Z

North Americans spend hundreds of dollars a year on gasoline, but very few people know what they are buying. You don’t taste it or touch it, and you rarely see it. -Do you know, for instance, what colour gasoline is? It’s naturally clear, but is dyed red, blue or amber to warn people of its toxicity (like the odor added to natural gas). “Gasoline stands at a technological distance from -the consumer” , explains Dr. Albert Fritsch of the Centre for Science in the Public Interest. As a result, according to a 1972 survey, over half of all gasoline consumers Americans waste $2 overbuy gasoline. billion a year for a higher grade of gasoline that their car actually needs. Now more than ever, it isimportant for the consumer to know_ what gasoline and gasoline for marketing is about, today’s astonomical prices are just part of .a marketing revolution that is changing where and how you tank up your automobile. . And for the first time..in 40 years, the composition of gasoline is undergoing an important change. You won’t find the __ explanation for any of these events in the barrage of ‘educational’ advertisements the oil industry has been aiming our way, -and for a very good reason-it’s not in their interest to tell you. “Nobody really wants to buy gasoline. It is not a satisfying pleasure like a good meal, or a happy extravagence like a new hat.” That was how Fortune magazine summed up the oil compnaies’ major difficulty in peddling the stuff back in 1969. Then the problems were different. _ Gas was cheap . and plentiful and customers were lured with glassw,are giveaways, green stamps, and miraculous additives. Service stations were designed to look like country clubs, - suburban homes,even Chinese temples. And for a time the carnival atmosphere, combined with the vague promises of better performance, worked. At the same time it advertised TCP, Shell had quietly licenced 13 competing oil refineries to use the very same additive. Other brands used a slightly different additive, but it&-accomplished the same thing. One major oil company jocularly summed -up the various claims by advertising that “In every gallon of our gasoline, you get-four quarts”. But the virtually tax free. The name of the game advertising stategy was effective. From People began buying cheaper gasoline was to retail at low profit and high volume. 1960 to 1969 Shell, with its TCP and, by 1972, non-major branded gasoline promotion, climbed from sixth to second in order to drill more: sales had captured a quarter of the retail place in gasoline sales. Curiously,’ a 1972. To that end, oil companies maintained market and were gaining rapidly.

competition did exist among - the majors came to a halt when all the oil companies were able to sell out their gasoline with no difficulty. In a few short months, retail prices 1 doubled. Oil company advertisements stopped touting gasoline additives and started apologizing for their obscene profits. Around.10 percent of the independent retailers were forced to close for lack of gasoline. So it looks like the days when you could trust your car to the man who wears the star are over. And we’d better find out what we’re getting. before we start investing $10 to $20 to tank up our cars. Oil companies. have done their best to make the whole business sound confusing. They spend a lot of time telling you about things that don’t matter (like additives) and no time explaining the one thing that does (octane). Unfortunately, federal regulations have so far made matters worse rather than better, but the gasoline story is acutally a very simple one, and well worth your while. The following stepby-step discussion of what makes a gasoline good or bad for your car, and how you can tell, will not only save you money. It will also make you feel less like a victim of what Exxon wants you to know.

REFINING: Refining processes are much the same from company to company, and oil companies swap oil both before and after it is refined. There are few variations in the way gasoline is blended. Some are seasonal and climatological, required of all oil companies; and slightly different * blends from one company to the next might give you faster starts or slightly better mileage. But the only way to find out is to try various brands in you own car - don’t go by advertisements. ADDITIVES-AND THE LIKE: There is a no reason to buy gasoline for the sake’of special additives like Platformate, F310 or TCP. As one petroleum engineer explains it, if any one company does find a beneficial additive, other companies buy a sample of the competitor’s gasol’me, have . it analyzed, and then add a similar ingedient to its own product. Shells TCP, for instance, widely advertised in the Sixties, was just a phosphorous additive which helped keep spark plugs clean. But TCP has since been removed from gasoline because it fouls’up the catalytic converters which will be standard; equipment on many I new 1 autos. Platformate, also widely advertised by Shell, ’ is not an a-dditive but a refining process, one of many developed over the last few years to get more high-octane gasoline from a barrel of oil. Chevron’s F-310 is a detergent additive. Gasolines have for some years included detergent as a deicing agent. Because Chevron’s F-310 had more than most, it helped to keep carburators clean. But, once again, most gasolines now use something similar. More interesting are the lengths to which oil companies go to prove the superiority of their additives: Chevron -used to run a television ad show*ing the car with F-310 haying a clean exhaust, and the car without it belching black smoke. y But in a Federal Trade Commission . hearing Chevron admitted that, in order to get a car running so dirty in the first place, a special gasoline, much gummier than any on the market, had to be invented. Next to the Chevron-developed “test” gasoline, other competing brands looked just as miraculously clean as did Chevron with F-310. KNOCKING: Using the wrong gasoline can- cause excessive engine knock (or ping). This has nothing to do with brand names or additives and is related only to the octane rating of your gasoline (see OCTANE below). While knocking can be a serious problem, it is not as serious as most people think-or as gasoline advertising would have you believe. . Knocking occurs when the gasoline and air mixture in the cylinders of the engine burns prematurely. If the mixture burns before the piston reaches the right point in its stroke, you will hear a distinct knocking (or pinging) sound, similar to

hammers rapidly tapping on metal. Continuous knocking over , long periods can severely damage your engine, but the slight sound you may mometarily hear when accelerating or climbing a steep hill is normal and harmless. ‘In fact, a slight, inaudible knock, called “trace knock” iS actually good for your car-it shakes 1 deposits off the piston heads. Over, two hundred hours of, continuous, intense knocking on a test engine were required before damage resulted. OCTANE NUMBERS: Octane numbers Drovide an index as to how well a gasoline prevents knocking. The octane rating system is useful to know and easy to understand, although the oil industry, the federal government, and even the auto industry have done their-best to make it The octane obscure and confusing. number is a rating on a scale of one to 100 of how well a particular gasoline prevented knocking under particular test conditions. An octane rating of 92, for example, does not mean that the gasoline is 92 percent pure, or that it has 92 of anything in it- it jtist means that it performed better than gasolines rated 91 or below and not as well as those rated 93 or above. An automobile engine needs a certain minimum octane to run properly, depending on the car. But gasoline with a higher octane rating than the minimum will not help your car, and can do some small harm. Since selling high octane gasoline is more profitable than regular or economy grades, the industry is not anxious to explain octane! In 1970, the Federal Trade Commission ruled that octane listings had to be listed on gasoline pumps, but the oil camnanies immediately took the FTC to -----I

court, where the matter still stands. Since then, the Federal Energy Administration has issued its own rule requiring octane ratings on pumps, but its authority is temporary and not being .enforced. If posted at all, octane ratings on most’ g’asoline pumps are hardly legible and are sometimes hidden on the side of the pump. To make matters worse .t+ere are two octane numbering systems: the Standard (“Research”) system and the oil industry systgm. Different testing conditions are used for each and, as a result, th& octane number for the same gasoline is about four wafter-tax [millions

numbers less by the industry system than by the standard system. And it is the industry’s number that the government requires to be posted on gasoline pumps. So, for example, if your auto manual says your car will run on 91 research octane, use the gas pump labeled 87 octane. second system? The ’ Why the confusing oil industry-claims that its system is more accurate-, than the Research octane number, although Dr. Alfred Cattaneo of the University of California disagrees.

Ekperimenting

Cattaneo says that the Research number corresponds to the driving needs of American cars 98 percent, of the time, while the industry system measures octane requirements only for a car under extreme strain; In any case the ’ oil industry benefits from the confusion. Since the industry’s system gives the same gasoline a lower number than the Research octane system, people are led to believe that regular and economy grades are not good enough and therefore are encouraged to overbuy.

should buy the lowest grade gasoline you can get, providing it doesn’t cause heavy engine knock. Just about every car built since 1971 (including Cadillacs) will run well on economy grade fuel (the pump labelled 87 octane). The only cars requiring premium are highcompression / cars built in‘the 1960s. There’s an interesting story about how Americans came to identify high octane with better gasoline.

the lead additive used to make highoctane gasoline, insisted that companies buying “ethyl” also had to improve their gasoline in other respects. These other improvementsfaster starting and cleaner burninghad nothing to do with the lead itself, but people began to identify premium as a -better gasoline. A number of years ago, however, Ethyl’s requirements were ruled in restraint of trade, and now all grades of gasoline are .clean and fast starting. But ethyl or premium is still considered higher quality, and oil companies encourage this myth by painting their pumps gold and giving them fancy names. A NOTE ON LEAD: Lead additives &d gasoline account for 90 percent of lead emissions to the atmosphere, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. A quarter qf urban children tested have unacceptable blood-lead levels and some people believe living in high auto exhaust ares are showing signs of biochemical abnormalities that precede lead poisoning. But lead is completely unnecessary to the manufacture’ of gasoline. In fact, Amoco has been making lead free gasoline for years. Starting in 1975, new cars with the required cataiytic converters must run on no-lead fuels. As of July 1st) about a third of all gasoline stations will be required to have at least one lead-free pump* But the E&.ronmental Protection -Agency program to remove lead from gasoline has been moving slowly, despite iIncreasing evidence of the danger of lead in the atmosphere. EPA’s original program to Sharply reduce lead emissions by 1977 has been deferred for two years, and plans to eventually remove lead from gasoline altogether have been dropped. Government documents revealed by the Natural Regources Defense Council in Neti York show that the EPA’s rules were weakened after heavy industry pressure was brought to bear ?n the tiPPA through other government agencies. For instance, a Commerce Department memo reveals that the Ethyl Corpgration was given an early draft of the proposed EPA, regulatiods before they were made public. Other memos indicated that the Commerce Dep&tm+ opposed the regulations after consulting only with ~, representatives of the lead, oil and auto industries, with not one representative from consumer groups or academia. Unfortunately oil companies have been charging about 2 cents more per gallon for unleaded gasoline than for leaded, although a gradual changeover to unleaded prodticts costs the oil companies at most only an extra fraction of a cent per gallon. Nevertheless, it is still a good idea t? start using lead-free gasoline. Besides helping to restore a healthy environment, you will save money (between 1% and 2 -cents\a gallon) on oil changes and filters if you use lead-free gasoline. One test that the Ethyl company has been publicizing lately shows that, under conditions of severe stress, pre-1971 cars may be damaged from the use of lead-free gasoline. The valve seats in those cars are made of a softer metal that might sometimes require the lead in gasoline to harden them. But the tests are not conclusive, and apply only to pre-1971 cars pulling extra heavy loads. Also, if until now you have been using leaded gasoline in your pre-1971 car, there is more than enough lead ingrained in the valve seats for you to safely use unleaded gas for the rest of your car’s life. And that in a &&hell is the story of gasoline. A former official of Standard Oil of California recently revealed that it cost an oil company about 12 cents a gallon to recover oil, transport it, and make it into gasoline (including the much’ advertised cost of new investment), but the oil ’ companies are charging 60 cents or more I per gallon. Quite a markup, even when ybu take into accdunt gasoline taxes and dealer profit. If we’re going to have to pay outlandish prices, we, may as well know what we’re paying for.

The story concerns the relationship between Major Walsh of the North West Mounted Police and Chief Sitting Bull of-the Sioux Indians during the latter’s years in Canada from 1877 to 1881. Sitting Bull was in the land of the Great White Mother to escape retribut-ion from the Americans after the battle of Little Big Horn, the one General Custer lost. It was Major Walsh’s job with the assistance of the NWMP, to enforce the law of the frontier territories. The purpose behind the formation of the NWMP was to extend Ottawa’s sovereignty to her colonies, to make the area safe for ’ settlers and railways. Of course, the greatest threat to+his goal was the presence of a’ few, thousand native people who. wanted to maintain their own way of life. Many had just escaped from the iron fist of American imperialism. Given the background

of British tradition, the limited size of the force, the NWMP had to rely more on tact and subterfuge to control the Indian population than violence-“the velvet glove” approach. As with most refugees, Sitting Bull and <his people were unwanted by the country they adopted. Despite his pledge of obedience to Canadian laws, this savage had proven how dangerous he could be and besides the Americans wanted him back. In between Sitting Bull and. the Canadian government stood Major Walsh, a man caught between his sympathies with the Indians and. his duty as a State employee; an honorable man who is asked to betray his honour if he wants to keep his job. In the end, Sitting Bull and his people return to the US after being starved almost to death in a brilliant -display on the part of the Canadian government of benign neglect. Sitting Bull is murdered and both governments come out .on top, the success of their imperialisms assured. Sharon Pollock’s play admirably portrays this tradgedy and the players and director give it life at the Third Stage. The dilemna of Major Walsh in his dealings with Sitting Bull and his superiors, the perceptions of the men around him, the wholeness of the Indian culture and the humbling effect of the great weapon called hunger are all well presented. It is the kind of professional production that one has come to expect of Stratford. To pick out the faults of

Shalit, NBC-TV, Today Show

the play itself would serve little purpose here. It -is the method and context of the presentation that the play loses what impact it might have had. The players deliver their lines with vigour from the aisles in the theatre but the audience and their minds remain seated, their involvement only an intellectual one. Only at the sight of the FrenchCanadian eating with his fingers do they become visibly emotionally moved, moved from being removed. Even in its relevancy, its appeal to the conscience, can be drowned out in the years that have passed since 1881. Sitting Bull is dead and people fail to make the connection that the forces that murdered him are still very much alive. The forces have changed and wi!l change, they change in pace with people’s consciousnesses in order to contain them. Brute violence is still the backbone of the State but this fact is being hidden by ever-thickening layers of liberal hegemony and -bureaucracy. In Canada, the’ violence is hidden by an image of 4benevolence but a benevolence that can also be lethal as Sitting Bull .discovered. \With friends like the Canadian government he didn’t{ need any enemies. ’ But imperialism in all, of its forms was and still is being fought. At this moment, the spiritual ancestors of Sitting Bull are struggling to reclaim some _land that was defauded from them at a park near Kenora. This review is dedicated to them. ’ -stu vickars nesday, out by Friday. Call 578-5951, Mrs. Maclean. ,

Closet cbors opening In 1948, Alfred Kinsey and friends published a report, Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male, which (although it dealt only with wasp society) came up with some incredible d.ata on the sexuality spectrum. Unfortunately, few people know about and/ or understand the importance ,of this work. Mental health professionals and other authorities have persisted, until, recently,in promoting all. the misleading ‘old wives tales’ about sexuality (they have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo sihce they base their business on people’s misinformation and attitudes.) Gradually a change is occuring in attitude; the ‘trendy’ thing now is to liberally state that alte_rnative types of sexuality can exist as long as they are not flaunted and are discussed on!y/within intellectual constructs. The human being is a sexual being. From birth a person is open to’ all types of sexual stimulus, animate and inanimate, and is merely socialiied towards the accepted norm of .heterosexual outlets. Unfortunately for the smug liberal, very few individuals are totally heterosexually oriented (something like 10 percent of thb population) and more people -a’re begrnning to realize this. Dr. Wainwright Churchill says in-’ Homosexual Behaviour Among Males that “we have spent so effort pretending that much time and homosexuality is rare, peculiar’ and remote from everyday life that we have succeeded in believing our own propaganda. In reality, however, homosexuality is neither particularly uncommon nor particularly remote from everyday life. It plays \

Every term for a finite length of time free movies are shown in the great hall. They are sponsored by the campus centre board and chosen by the turnkeys. Forums and dramatic productions also add to the fourwalled stillness of the great ha!. The Student Services building (also known as I‘ra J. Needles) contains offices that are -aimed. primarily at th,e student. Counselling services located on the second floor of Studenf Services, is open five days a week from 9 tc; 5. Programs at-e run which include personal and sofiaI counselling and different groups in ge&lt anti other forms of awareness. -Aptitude testing for various jobs and vocatibns is also provided. On the bottom floor of the Student Services are three departments that are fairly important to most students. The Career lnformatioti Centre exist:; -to aid the student in her his personal development and career planning. Information on drugs, sexuality, marriage and just about anything are provided along with CUSO, the Company for. Young Canadians and government and industrial jobs. The* Co-ordination department exists in order to provide students on co-op terms with jobs. Sometimes one wonders if it exists instead to pr.ovid@ employers with student workers. The offices of this department interview students before their work terms for jobs with a fairly extensive number of employers. This service is not free, the co-op students pay for it out of their fees. The Career Planning and Placement centre provides literature from employers along with other career information for members of the university community who are interested in finding career alternatives. _Graduating students can register at the beginning of their final year in order to obtain interviews with prospective employers. Some public ‘service examinations> and graduate study admission tests are also given for areas such as the public‘ services,.and 18~ and medical school. Also located on the lower floor of the building% the housing office where you’ can search through many lists in order to find a place to live. Three free phones are also provided so you can “let your fingers do the ,waIking”. The Chaplain’s office is also on this floor. A list of ministers for various faiths and denominations is kept in the office.. On-campus mail (mail to profs or university residents or personnel) can be sent free of charge by placing the person’s name, department. or address on the envelope and placing it in the mail basket in the federation office. Last but not least is the fact that there is a print room in engineering four with a dry mounting press and various trays and sinks which can be used if they can be found in the recesses of the third floor. There is also an -automotive shop in one of the engineering buildings that students can use free of charge. There are most cerIainly more free services on campus but they have yet to be found and recorded. If you run across any services of interest to the general student body contact the chevron.

Never far-behind any new womensports is one of a kind. ’ trend, advertisers took note of the recent develop;ments of women’s liberation a’nd The July ‘issue featured a persdnalityof the numbers of women becoming acprofile type article on Mary &con, one of two top’ female joekeys in the United tively involved in sports and decided that States. The story starts off tamely er-iough they needed to rea&h this pai+ket. bavid &th author Charlotte White’ listing Foster, president of Colgate explains fhat since women make m-ost of the purchases Bacon’s various ac’hievements: Bacon i$ * in any family, it is only logical to haye welldrily 2-O years old;-*has h,ad two children, - been married once, quit school in the sixth known ‘women advertise produc&-in a grade, has spent time in reform schools, magazine that women’ are tieading: Adwas born-of migrant farmworker parents,vertisers had previously been reaching and has been riding since slie was six.

It would be extremely cynic;il, and most ‘likely untrue to contenb that this was, the only reasor] for the publishing’of the new sports magazin+womefiSports. In the, Publisher’s Letter of the second issue (July) King; explains how she wants womensports to be “a vehicle for all women to use in communicating the joys and frustrations of being involved in sports.” She clearly sees the magazine as the only way women, and Janyoneielse for that matter, can be informed of women’s ‘activities and breakthroughs in ttie world of sports. King acknowledges the fact that the other media just are not doing-their job. ’ . The first issire of * womenS@orts appeared on the news-stands in June. It was a poor’ cross between Ms. and Sports Illustrated with page after page of Billie Jean King endorsed products a’nd Billie j This all certainly remarkable, but also quite plausible. However, ’ half way through the -interviewing -process White .gets suspicious after reading some other accounts of Bacon’s “life. Hereup‘ijn the previously boring and traditional I interview bega-n to get interesting. White ’ discovers, through sdme investigative rep’orting,Rhat Bacon iIs, in fact, 26 years ~old, ,the’ daughter of a quite respectable family, a graduate from high school, and that she learned tb ride while her faniiiy was a member of a rather “elite riding club”. i White’s discovery chatiged a regular profile article into a piece that wasenjo’jlable a’nd enl.ightening to read. This sort of writing and reporting skill sufaced in the July ,issue of womensports in several places, and made the magazip i success. Another treasure,bf that issue is an accciunt by Greg Hoffman of his childhood experiences with an Iathletic nun. This short piece -holds no - hidden moral -message-it is just plain funny. It is wjth type of article that womensports does the best. The remainder, articles that- by the nature of what they-are covering have to take some sort of stand on wonien in sport or sport in general, are a less rewarding group-and much more confusing. The first noticable contradiction appears within the first few. pages. womensports editorializes against ‘cosmetics and their promotion in a sh~ort

After’ appearing to- come out agaihst \ cosmetics and the op‘pression they , repre&t, womenSports does an about face and emphasizes the various ‘beauty’ pageants some sports women have won and how they managed to “keep their looks up” even’while playivg sports. The first blow comes during an account of how a woman; basketball player got onto a , man’s team, an interesting-enough event. The acdount, unfortunately, was written Lby the woman in questiofi-also “,viss ’ San Bernardino”: $he explains how “somehow, I managed to keep on going even though I felt worn out. I kept my grades-up, kept my health ’ up and kept my looks up for the beauty pageant. . . My first practice was qyite an I experience. l\was about three or four minuIes late because I had gone horr;le and washed my hair. After all, I couldn’t go to my first practice with dirty hair.” At the end of this story womensports includes an ‘editor’s note’ explaining how -the author was Miss Rialto bf- 1972 and _ holds the Miss San Berngrdino Universe title to;- this year. Apparently these statistics are vital informatiqn for the .readership, s+ Qf the \ woman’s credentials. It is this sort of attit,ude that men’s sports magazines have held for women for so long-and \ that now woqnensports has. the chance to ignore or , undo. , That was not the end of I,queens’ either.,, In a feature article about’ women’s highschool - basketball, author Judy Klemesrud makes Ihe following points: “Although some people might think this athletic parity could &sult in making Amazons out bf girls and basketweavers out ot boys, no s,uch thing has happened. , In fact, the ,girl barketball, playerg are o#en the most popular j girls in their schools.-bmong -the players at the tournament, * for example, were five‘ homecoming qceens;\a teen queen, a horse show.queen, a”nd a Future Framers of qmerica sweetheart.” . Hopefully the- days will come to an end when a girl’s poularity’and credibility is measured in the number of titles she has won through her appearance. The contradiction5 did not end with the queens. In a , feature entitled “Why _ Wpinen Lose” authors Thomas Boslooper and Marcia Hayes call women to t.he fight :’ “if- wo’men are ever to get to the point where they can do something, really do something to change their .lives and Society, they will have leari to win and’win . ’ big. -Not in imitation of men, but in full realization of themselves.” Bosloop2r and *’ Hayes make a pretty strong call ‘for ‘healthy’ competition and co-ed spo<ts. -In ‘a short editorializing piece under the heading “Last Word”, Glenn Dickey, and womenSport$ call for a re-examination. of the American Little League becabse it breedsunhealthy competition. “They _ (girls) have been damn lucky to have tieen,, excluded from these programs, which have overemphasized winning, distorted the values of sports and. generally produced more damage to the l male psyche than anybody cares to -admit.” Perhaps these distinctions are minor, and perhaps the editors of women. SportSboth articles are trying to say the satie thing.But that doesnot come across in the presentation. ’ Nevertheless, in tallying and rqting the, articles of the July issue, the ‘goods’ are l way ahead of the ‘bads’. womenSports is addcessihg the -majority of North : American women, in the style to which 4 they are accustomed: It ‘presents news j that does not-reach the regular media1 news about women joining men’s teams, ‘I news about women winning and corn- I’ peting.

The pursuit of a University education involves much more tnan formal attenuanct: al a series of lectures and seminars. Much of the learning process is tied in with the many new experiences a student has in endeavours and interests outside the classroom. One of these “other” areas of interest may be in our athletic program. Understandably, an active personal involvement in some of the more vigorous aspects of our athletic programme may not be possible for all. But we hope the possibility of recreational fun or the relaxed enjoyment of a spectator’s role may permit a meaningful contribution to all of us in the campus community. Three general areas of attention are definable in our University athletic ,programme-the highly competitive intercollegiate programme, the less demanding intramural programme and the still more casual “recreational-instructional” programme. While there is a considerable overlap of aims and objectives in these three areas, it is our intention that all be promoted with vigor and enthusiasm in order to assure that each may find a milieu in which the desire for activity and physical experiences may be satisfied.. We welcome your involvement.

For students who enjoy participating in good athletic competition, other than on the intercollegia te level, an extensive intramural programme has been developed at ithe University of Waterloo. Over thirty-five activities are offered on a scheduled or tournament basis and the competition is. on a fairly high level. In men’s intramural athletics, the student body is divided into twenty units competing in four leagues. In an effort to get greater participation from the freshmen, a league has been set up to cater, exclusively to freshmen, enrolled Engineering and in Arts, Mathematics. These three tir:l; 3 will compete, along with G. tometry and Enviromental Studies, - in Division II of the Faculty League: The men’s intramural, teams compete for two trophies; the K.D. Fryer Trophy, offered annually to the unit amassing the greatest

that, may be carried on throughout one’s life-time. It is hoped that as the student’s proficiency increases, his general physical fitness will be improved and the student ,will be able to enjoy a fuller, healthier life. A complete list of planned activities the Athletic is available in Department Office. On-Campus publicity for intramural, recreational and inis ’ acstruction activities complished by means of blue posters (for men) and pink posters Periodic (for women). newspapers, in the same colours are published throughout the year. These newspapers summarize the activities that have taken place and offer publicity for upcoming events. For further information on any of the athletic activities carried on at the University of Waterloo, contact the athletic please department office in the physical activities complex.

active fun program. What is it? Most people think of “comintramurals as highly petitive” leagues, tournaments and the like. At Waterloo, the competitive aspect of intramurals is one quarter of the program, with recreational, instructional and

Intramurals

:

the

.

athletic club,programs making up the other seventy-five per cent. At Waterloo, intramurals means “a voluntary internal program of physical activity based on the needs and interests of the participants”. Objectively, it is a safe, fun and varied program which aspires to: 1. permit an individual to make effective use of his leisure time. .2. enable an individual to learn a particular activity. 3. encourage an individual to enhance his level of personal health and fitness. 4. provide an individual the opportunity to participate in activities that may carry-over into later life. 5. provide an opportunity for an individual to develop and demonstrate his administrative and organizational abilities. 6. provide an opportunity for an individual ( to demonstrate and, develop attitudes for leadership and sportsmanship. ‘7. encourage social interaction. _ 8. enable an individual to understand and appreciate the values inherent in physical activity . 9. encourage an individual to be an active participant in the physical activity which best serves his needs and interests. It ’ is integral belief in Intramurals that the more students you involve in the decision making process of the program, the..better the program. There are many ways in which students can make their program more meaningful. MIAC / WIAC-the Advisorf Councils

Intramural

(men and women) are the backbone of the program. They are comprised of 15-24 students each representing a particular body of students, either by place of. residence or faculty. They meet regularly to maintain the good order and conduct of the program. The unit structures are ?S follows: ’ ON CAMPUS LE’AGUES St. Jeromes, Conrad Grebel, St. Pauls, Renison, Village 1 North,

Also they represent that group, on council to voice their opinions as to the worth of it. Their combined voices determine the policy and effectiveness of the Intramural program. Student Assistants : Six student assistants are hired to assist -the Director in the organization *and administration of the program. are Publicity, Their areas Aquatics,. Recreational team sports, Trainor, Fitness and Tournaments. Convenors, officials, Referee-inChiefs, Lifeguards, Instructors, Club executives: Last year over 530 students were hired in the program in the above areas. Not only does this enable students to gain some practical knowledge but it helps them financially. THE PROGRAM Competitive:

Each term lo-15 activities are offered on a competitive level. They compete for an overall high point trophy called the Fryer Trophy. The unit that has the highest number of participants wins the Townson Award each term. If you are interested in competitive please refer to the program outline. Recreational : This program has three aspects to it. a ) individual b) team c) free. Free Time: This means that certain athletic facilities are open on a first come, first serve basis. Activities such as skating, swimming, badminton, jogging, volleyball and weight training, or others, may be played when the facilities are not booked. Please check the weekly gym schedule posted in the PAC for ,available free gym time. Scheduled events, take precendence. Your own personal equipment is advised.

facilities have been booked for the individual. Such sports as swimming, tennis and squash fall into this program. Sports :

These are unique in that there are no officials, points or awards for winning. The emphasis is on fun for fun’s sake. Standings are not kept but a fun tournament is held at the conclusion of the program where possible in which any team can enter. Instruction : This fast growing level of the program is geared to beginners. By teaching people the fundamentals of individual carryover types of activity <e.g. golf), they will feel more comfortable participating in it at another level. Instruction, is offered two ways, through the Athletic Club program such as sailing, or separately like, swimming or squash. Athletic Club: Eleven Clubs offer the students a wide variety of activity. Each Club has a competitive, recreation,’ instructional and social aspect. For specific program details, refer to IM News Outline.

Last year, the Intramural program was called by some as “the year of involvement”, as over 838 teams played 2800 games, involving over 10,609 participants. Qthers called it “the year of the upset?-as one defending champion after the other failed to retain their crown.
