Over 7000 women joined in a march and provincial government inaction

Women More than 1,000 women gathered in Toronto on Saturday, May 10, to join in a march on city hall protesting federal and provincial inaction on demands made by the women’s movement. Representatives of almost eighty different groups from Peterborough, Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Samia and other Ontario communities met at Queen’s Park to take part in the march. The march was originally planned to proceed down Yonge Street, but the women were not allowed to use the street by order of the Toronto city police commissioner.’ A spokesperson for the women charged police with making them feel “harassed” and “unwelcome” on the streets of Toronto. As the marchers proceeded down University Avenue and Bay Street, bystanders lining the streets cheered them on and many joined in the march. Upon reaching Nathan Phillips Square, spokespersons for the groups again stated their demands. International Women’s Year was criticized as a government campaign which failed to accomplish any of the real changes wanted by -women. It was felt that the government was merely paying “lip

leisure’

UniWsiti6s University engineering education in Canada took some hard knocks from engineer H. W. Jackson, director of college affairs in the provincial ministry of colleges and universities. However this time a government official was clearly on the side of the students. The university was referred to by Jackson as “a permanent oasis of academic leisure”. He hinted the teachers’ main concern was not his students but instead his own individual research. Furthermore, Jackson said teachers were the “bell curve heros” of the educational institution whose biggest feat is the aligning of student’s marks to fit a bell curve distribution. Jackson was the keynote speaker in the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario (APEO) Engineers-inEducation Division annual meet-ing. “University educators must have a death wish as university education is perceived by the pub- lit as being teacher oriented and not student oriented”, Jackson told the group of engineering directors. “Colleges and universities have simply become too big and too in-

stitutionalized. Education stops the day a student cannot approach a university administrator or teacher who is unwilling to bend the rules to take care of the student’s problem”, Jackson added. Apparently, the whole three billion dollar business of education in Ontario is bankrupt. Jackson said within the university education bureaucracy there is hardly a mention of students and their welfare. Instead. students only appear in the enrollment totals of ministry reports and as the innocuous, but delectable BIU (Basic Income Unit). There is never any consideration of what the optimal level of enrollment for a university is, instead education bureaucrats appear to have an insatiable thirst for as many BIU’s as they can lay their hands on. Jackson went on to list-what he thought were the four major problems the university has to combat. First, he sympathized with the low standard of high school students the universities had to contend with. “The cafeteria system of today’s high school with its greater selec-

protest service” to women’s liberation with their “Why not” slogan. As one person exclaimed, the campaign is “a put-on; an empty phrase to keep women quiet.” The women also protested the $2.5 million cut in daycare budgets across the province and the fact that women employed in the work force continue to be paid less for equal work. Sandy Stanecker, a spokesperson for the marchers, told of the urgent need, women have for quality child-care centres and better job opportunities. “There are still too few outstanding jobs available for women. Most of us are degraded to doing underpaid factory work”, Stanecker pointed out. Other issues raised by the marchers were equal rights in family~ and property laws, the removal of abortion from the criminal code and the demand for the immediate release of Dr. Morganthaler. The jailing of Morganthaler was depicted by Stanecker as “a slap in the face of women. ’ ’ Stanecker‘ concluded that: “In the history of the women’s movement, or any movement, liberation has not been given so we women have to liberate ourselves.”

tion of courses looks great in theory”, Jackson noted. However, educators must to a certain extent listen to the recent negative public reaction and the apparent negative results of this experiment. Secondly, students are still turned off by the lack of relevance found in their university education. Many students in engineering schools across the country find what they learn in school is of little use to themselves when they are on an engineering job. Thirdly, educators and administrators must be aware of the voter’s concern over the inflated costs of educating their children. Some schools have had open houses and invited the surrounding community to see the engineering schools they have built with their tax dollars. However, many open houses backfired when people in their forties’ saw the elaborate equipment that in their day could never be available. ’ His fourth criticism laid the blame for some problems on the incorrect notion that _a university education is a guarantee of a job. “There are just too few students in the courses where jobs are easily available, ’ ’ Jackson commented. The emphasis ineducation is on a piece -of paper, the degree, and this is “so wrong”. Education is a life-time experience and yet degrees are almost all you can hear educators talking about these days. The teaching methods of today’s university professor are sometimes quite incompatible with the aim “to educate”. When it comes to teaching methods, the professor is like Columbus “who did not know where he was going, but when he did discover America he did not know where he was and it was on someone else’s money”. A member of Waterloo’s engineering programme politely informed Jackson, he felt most of his criticism could not be levelled at UW’s school. “We have students on almost every damn committee that exists. Many times in the past two or three years teachers have had their contracts terminated due to the student’s course evaluation results” ) the professor insisted. “If this ‘place is an oasis of academic leisure, I’d like you to trade jobs with me. It just is not that way here”, he continued. Jackson replied “Well I’m afraid in the public’s eye you are tarred with the same brush”. The educators then retired for lunch. aike

Profs to bargain with ‘paymaster’ Unionization may be the only option facing UW’s faculty association if a proposal to establish a province-wide salary negotiating body to deal directly with the government fails. But “at the moment the faculty association is not in favour of unionizing since there’s still hope that the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) two-tier proposal will be accepted by the government,” said association president Jim Stone, in an interview Monday. having Stone, attended OCUFA’s annual meeting last week where the proposal was accepted by 14 of the 15 member associations, said he would like to see the two-tier system “given a chance” before holding certification discussions. The proposal calls for direct negotiation with the province on salary issues and leaves the remaining issues to local associations so that no trade-offs would be permitted between salary levels and faculty strength. Also contained in the proposals are cost of living increases, merit increases and fringe benefits. “If the salary component is separated from the universities’ budgets and negotiated with the govemment, it so follows we’ll have to be accountable to the government,” Stone said. He also added that in reality the government is the “boss” as it is telling universities what to do and profs might as well bargain, with the ‘ ‘paymaster’ ’ . Meanwhile, the minister of colleges and universities, James Auld, in an interview with the Kitchener-Waterloo Record May 8, feared that the provincially negotiated salary contracts, the concept of which must be approved by government and universities, will defeat the government’s plan to decentralize authority.

Auld warned that if faculty associations were to go ahead and advance the proposal, they should realize they are heading for a state university system. “I would not be enthusiastic about this kind of step,” Auld said. “It could get rid of the diversity in the university system which exists now.” He said he wanted to examine the proposal closely because “it could create more problems than it would solve, perhaps new problems ..’’ But Auld’s warnings were dismissed as .“ mere hogwash” by Stone who felt universities currently don’t have any autonomy and one might as well do away with the “farce”. He noted that the deadline for the proposal to be fmalized would be at the fall OCUFA conference, at which time it would be known whether the faculty associations and the universities would have a consensus position -on the matter before approaching government. If the outcome of the meeting is that the proposal is unacceptable to both parties then the UW faculty association might proceed with the unionization option, Stone said. He said he was cautious about the success of a certification bid as a similar one failed four years ago. However, Stone said there “might be a snowballing effect on the rest of the province with the Carleton University faculty association gaining recognition as a bargaining unit. ” At present the faculty association has 560 duespaying members which works out to 80 per cent of UW’s professoriate, he said. The UW senate will discuss the OCUFA proposal at its meeting May 19 to determine whether it wishes to examine the question further. -john

Daycare.~ Day coming The increasing need for quality day care centers across Ontario has led conce,med persons in Ontario to proclaim May 21, 1975 as Daycare Day. The day has a particular urgency in the Waterloo region since the regional council is talking about cutting daycare subsidies which are currently allotted to mothers who cannot afford to pay for daycare costs. The focus of attention for the day will be the quality of daycare centers available to parents and the responsibility that the co,mmunity

has towards providing quality daycare centers. Toward this end local daycare centers are having open houses between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.; this includes the two university connected centers, Klemmer Co-op and the daycare at Married Students residence. These two centers are examples of the types of daycare available to parents. The center at Married Students is typical in structure to most other daycare centers in that it is run by paid staff and parents have little involvement with the

Grads lack skills

Training

blamed

“We are not looking for the engineering student with the high marks, but instead want those with leadership-ability and interpersonal skills”, was the point of P.J. Kyselka, the personnel manager of Canadian General Electric Company Limited. Kyselka said he found those with the highest marks were usually hard working loners who are unable to communicate with people. “More and more the engineer is required to do administrative work and engineering technologists trained at technical schools do the fundamental engineering work”, Kyselka added. Engineering schools are not training engineers with the skills we need; those the manufacturing engineer is required to know These include the ability to judge the economic feasibility of a project, the value to society of the products he is producing, and the aesthetic quality of something they are working on. Kyselka insisted “these are the qualities we are looking for”, during last Saturday’s Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario’s (APEO) Engineers-inEducation Division. The conference was organized to answer the questions ‘ ‘Education: What, How and By Whom”. Apparently manufacturing industries are finding the engineers graduating from Canada’s schools “are not familiar with basic factory processes, such as the operation of a lathe.” “ We had to give one engineer a whole week,.just to figure out the lathe operation”, Kyselka said. Employers complain engineers have a shortage of communication skills, cannot draw, organize a team of technologists and do not have the ability to make verbal presentations. “Sure their marks may be good, but that’s not what we’re looking for and I d.on’t think that is what you are teaching” Kyselka added. He then added “although engineers are much better educated than they were twenty years ago, \

we are finding the majority of graduates lack these skills.” An engineer must be ~a “generalist”, not a specialist. He or she must have a little knowledge on a broad range of topics. The audience of educators, mostly taken aback by this criticism, were at times quite critical of his points. One commented “You come from General Electric which has damn little social consciousness. Kyselka admitted when hiring summer students we always consider our “profit oriented interest” first and foremost. When questioned on how ‘many engineers the company was willing to hire and train in the summer, he admitted they hired very few. The discussion then turned to the problem of encouraging businesses to hire student engineers in the summer. One of the only two women present suggested the government should be offering these companies tax concessions to hire students since industry lacks a social conscience. H. W. Jackson, director of college affairs in the provincial ministry of colleges and universities, when asked what he thought of this proposal said “I do not think the provincial government should be subsidizing industry”. The government does have a lever on industry to hire students but they only do it to improve the unemployment statistic, not to improve education. After things had cooled between the university people and Kyselka, most put the problem as being one of a lack of communication between industry and universities. One university professor insisted “in my thirty years as an engineer the manufacturing industry in this country has never been satisfied with our training of engineers because this gap of communication has always existed and willlikely continue’.‘. -mike

running of the center. The Klemmer co-op on the other hand is run by the parents, although there are three full-time staff hired as teachers. The operation and administration of the center is carried out from policies and procedures which are discussed and formulated at monthly parents meetings. Each family has one vote in any decisions requiring a vote. Parents are also involved with various committees, such as maintenance and grounds, food, educational and admissions committees. Parents are also required to spend four hours a week working with the children during the day. In this way there are always three staff and at least one parent at the center. The one drawback to this structure is that at least one of the parents or the only parent must be in a position to work four hours during one day each week. This obligation to the co-op is fundamental to it’s existence and is thus,adhered to very strictly. Public information booths will also be set up in the Fairview, Market Square and Westmount Place shopping centers in order to inform interested persons about the state of daycare quality in this region.

with regard to subsidization of the societies” and asked whether the federation would be prepared to cover any losses incurred by food services on a society function. He agreed with Campus Centre pub manager Art Ram that “the societies don’t want to take,a loss while food services makes money” but questioned “Why should we take a risk on these functions?” Deeks asked what plans the federation had for using the anticipated surplus from the operation of the Campus Centre pub. Ram responded that any surplus would be directed toward repaying the university the cost of installation and renovations for the pub and toward future expansion of the facility. Kim Etherington, president of the Engineering Society, feels that there is a need for a facility such as South Campus Hall. He said that most engineering students disliked the Campus Centre pub--as “the music is too loud” and “there is no dance floor. ’ ’ Under present arrangements, however, “it seems more convenient to go off campus” since “we can get Jason’s for nothing and the drinks are the same or a competitive price. ” Etherington said that the optimum arrangement from the point of view of the societies would be “no waiters and a self-service bar. ” He played down the administration’s claim that such an arrangement is prohibited under the terms of the permanent licence and suggested that it could be arranged if sufficient effort were applied. “I have the feeling that somebody is against students around here ,” Etherington stated, but he declined to elaborate. He suggested as a compromise solution that the bar should cover all expenses other than entertainment, feeling that: “If we only had to pay for entertainment we could run it.” ’ However, with good bands priced at around $500, ‘some societies might find such a compromise unattractive as it would require attracting over 300 persons at $1.50 a head to break even. Shortall hopes to be able to negotiate a satisfactory settlement by the end of June.

they hoped to recover this money through increased use of the facility. There was a $47,000 deficit on operation of the hall during the past year. I Federation president John Shor-tall suggested that the university should regard the societies’ functions as encouraging use of the hall since: ‘ ‘Each time a special event is put on it will attract a number of people who would be unfamiliar with the facility otherwise.” He felt that the university should not try to write off its investment at the expense of the societies but should regard their use of the hall as publicizing the existence of a pub there. Deeks expressed a willingness to negotiate toward a mutually satisfactory arrangement, saying “we want to provide a service.. .but we can’t do it for nothing.” He suggested that “the federation has to reconsider their position

seek use of hall

Negotiations are proceeding between the Federation of Students and administrative services regarding the use of South Campus Hall by student societies. At the present time, although the hall is licenced, most societies cannot afford to use it. At issue is the use to be made of the bar receipts from functions held there by the societies. The problem from the societies’ point of view is that without a share of the bar receipts they are forced to cover their expenses-from the admission charge. This forces them to raise admission charges, resulting in a drop in attendance. The position of administrative services, as represented by director Bill Deeks, is that: “We’ve got to make money off of these special events.” The university, spent $50,000 on South Campus Hall last year to install a permanent pub there and

Stocking Up is a completecollection of traditional methods of home preservation combined with safe and efficient modern developments. In this book you’ll find step by step instructions on preserving anything from fruit to nuts-without chemicals or sugar. The book begins with learning how to choose the right seeds to grow these vegetables. It outlines vitamin content and tells the best harvest time for each vegetable. Freezing, drying and canning are three methods outlined as preservation methods. These chapters contain many charts and tables to assist the preserver. There is also an extensive chapter on building un-’ derground storage. Recipes for various pickles, relishes, jams and jellies are also given, along with proper methods to prepare each. The dairy products section is of particular interest. It outlines the making of butter, cottage cheese and yoghurt. A meat section is also included in this book, which shows general butchering techniques and cuts as well as smoking and curing methods. The last ‘section is on grains which begins with the harvesting and leads to bread recipes. “All in all, Stocking Up will help you find the ‘satisfaction-and security-that comes from knowing that you have control over the food you eat every step of the way, from garden to pantry.”

The blender is probably the least used kitchen ap-pliance. Blend it Splendld turns it into an indispensible tool, especially to people who care about their diet. The cookbook begins with a few very helpful, healthy hints on blender care and eating habits in general. It warns strongly against any saturated fats, white sugar or flour and also a group of foods under a law the author calls the ‘Standard of Identity’. Under this law, makers of certain foods do not have to list their ingredients. These include ketchup, ice cream, cheese, soda pop and many others. The cookbook itself is an extensive collection of recipes. .These range from breakfasts in a glass to glorious supper desserts, with large selections of main courses and soups. All recipes are concise and most take very little effort or time. The authors, Stan & Floss Dworkin, live in an apartment in the middle of Manhatten where they grow their own herbs and some vegetables in a small greenhouse. “Though healthy eating isn’t everything, an aware- ness of where it fits into ,your life is a good start in creating a happy, productive existence.” -diane ritza

Over the past few years a surge of interest has developed in indoor gardening. Bringing the Outdoors In is a book devoted to those who want to have more greenery in their houses year round. The book deals with vines, wildflowers, ferns, mosses, bulbs, cacti and dozens of other plants. ’ It starts by covering the basics of plant physiology and biology, the various types of soils in which plants grow best, how to choose the proper pots and when and how to repot plants and how to start the plants from seeds and cuttings. One chapter of interest is entitled “constructing window greenhouses” which explains how to construct indoor greenhouses using existing windows. The book explains that the materials are relatively cheap and that only the basics of carpentry need be known. The book covers some of the more unique plants with chapters dealing with exotic- and insectivorous , _.plants. The exotic chapter covers the various types of orchids and bromeliads which are relatively easy to grow. The chapter on insectivorous plants covers eight species of pitcher plants, three species of butterworts, five species of sundews and the most popular incesti-vore, the Venus flytrap. Throughout the book there are excellent graphic illustrations done by the author, with each illustration being exactly scaled and the scale factor shown for each drawing. Many illustrations are either full size or scaled down to three quarters life size. In the last chapter there is a list of suppliers of plants and seeds as well as a list of plant societies and plant publications. An excellent bibliography is included for anyone interested in further reading. For the person who is just beginning indoor gardening or for someone who wants to acquire more knowledge, Bringing the Outdoors In is a helpful reference book. -syhria hauck

emerges as a clean and achievement, relevant to and Canadian society as a

honest women whole. The collection of nine essays, written by a small group within the Canadian Women’s Education Press, examines various facets of women’s work in an historical perspective-the first to be published in North America. Until recently, women’s history consisted mainly of biographies, memoirs of well-known literary or political women and of course, a few discussions on the suffragette movement. But the women’s movement has encouraged women to go ahead and rediscover their own history. The authors of Women at Work knew their mothers and grandmothers had worked-as mothers, domestic servants, teachers, etc.-but it seemed the history books had overlooked the significance of their , work and implied in fact, that women had played no part in Canadian history at all. The authors decided to stimulate ‘research in the area themselves. The result is a well-documented, informative study of female labour in a given period that is a landmark in, women’s literature. Based on extensive primary research the book discusses the working conditions and activities of nurses, teachers, domestic servants, prostitutes and industrial workers between 1850 and 1930. Illustrations, photographs and anecdotes provide a fresh historical approach to the subject. The women of the past are allowed to speak for themselves whenever possible. The authors focus on the single,, waged, female worker and the exploitation of these women in the context of a rapidly industrializing society. The book reveals the conditions under which women ‘worked, and the responses of women to these conditions. Between 1850 and 1930 Canadian

women found new occupations in social service agencies and offices in addition to their traditional work as farm wives, domestics, and prostitutes. But the increased participation in an industrial economy did not bring about a substantial improvement in women’s status. The woman worker has generally had her work defined as an extension of her female role. In a key chapter, The Political Economy of Ontario Women in the Nineteenth Century, Leo Johnson pinpoints the origins of employment discrimination against women as a result of technological innovations in industrial capitalism. When the factory system enabled muscle power to be replaced by machine power and high-cost skilled labour by low-paid, unskilled labour, women became direct economic competitors of men. Within the factory and office a system was developed which designated certain tasks as “women’s work” and paid for with low wages. That way the capitalists were still provided with a source of cheap industrial labour, and working-class men were no longer threatened by direct job competition from cheap female labour. But the most moving essay, because it represents the ultimate in exploitation of women, deals with prostitution in Toronto at the turn of the century and its strong connection with the domestic service. The roots of prostitution were believed to lay in the individual deviant-the “fallen women” not with society. The prostitute was not seen as a worker who sells her body or her labour for a fee, and as a result is the most exploited and alienated woman worker in a capitalist society. Few,Torontonians attributed the entry of women into prostitution to economic causes. Faced with poverty, no skills, and low wages, many women turned to prostitution to supplement their income. The Social Service Commission, established in 1913 to investigate “the problem of the white slave traffic’ ’ , found that of 37 prostitutes interviewed 19 stated they entered the profession because they could not live on the wages they were earning. Of these 19, four were full-time prostitutes and 15 were part-time currently working at other jobs.

FEDERATION OF STUDENTS !

Part of the problem was that wages were set on the assumption that the woman was living at home, either with herparents or husband. The Commission recommended the passage of a minimum wage law to reduce the economic pressure which often drive women to the streets. The Commission also reported that in a sample of 75 prostitutes 48’ per cent said they had worked as domestic servants before their entry into the trade. Domestic service was poorly regarded by other working women. While the factory worker was forced to sell her labour power for a specified number of hours per week in order to survive, at least the remaining time was her own. The domestic, on the other hand, usually had to work very long hours with no fixed time off each week. Forced to live under the same roof as her employer, she was constantly at his or her disposal. Because of this, she had very little privacy or opportunity to socialize. Thus domestic service was regarded. by most working people as a degrading, and therefore, low prestige occupation. Since domestic service was closest to prostitution in the social scale of female occupations, it was likely that an unemployed domestic, unable to find a job would move one notch down by accepting work as a prostitute. Plus the insecurity, isolation, and loneliness which characterized domestic service made unemployed domestics particularly vulnerable to the recruitment efforts of madames and pimps. Two other occupations labelled as “women’s work”-teaching and nursing-are also discussed revealing an attempt in both areas to socialize passiveness in women. The struggle of women in both professions for registration and recognition and equality in wages should be studied not only by women in those fields but by every high school student before they choose their profession. In fact the entire book should be *on the reading list as a textbook or reference book for social science courses on secondary and postsecondary levels of education. Through exploring the reality of Canadian women’s experience it proposes the framework in which to begin to answer why double .exploitation of women as mothers and, workers haa persisted to the present day. It is important to learn how women in the past were manipulated and how they fought to overcome discrimination. The authors of this book feel that by gaining a

manipulation for political gain The present provincial government has been waging an all-out campaign to deliberately mislead and misinform the general public on the state of affairs of the universities. James Auld, minister of colleges and universities, when announcing the levels of financial support to universities and colleges in 197576 claimed that the total sum involved would be “sufficient to offset inflationary trends, to maintain or improve the existing level of service and to accommodate predicted enrolment increases.” The Ontario Council on University Affairs, a group appointed by the present government, claims that if the government were to maintain the present, level of service a conservative estimate of 16.2 million additional funds would be required. Less than a month after his announcement on funding to universities, Auld told the legislature that the universities have $80 million unencumbered funds sitting in banks accumulating interest (K-W Record Dee 14). The government certainly tried to paint a picture of universities drowning in their own fat. B. C. Matthews, not known for %making rash statements, criticized Auld for giving the public a dishonest figure. Auld used an April 1974, audit when a large chunk of UW’s so-called surplus was paid out for a mortgage on the residences in May.’ Matthews further stated (K-W Record Dee 18) that it could be the government is trying to improve its election chances by making cuts to universities an issue. In the winter term White, the former treasurer for the province, misrepresented the student faculty ratios by stating that the average class size in universities is 24.

BUGS

On his April 27th visit to UW Auld was more interested in side-stepping issues raised than responding to legitimate questions. When Auld was questioned about remarks made by Ian MacDonald, the president of York University and,the former deputy treasurer of Ontario, that the government increase grants to the university system for the 197576 academic year similar to increases granted to elementary and secondary schools, he denied that a grant increase has occurred. The fact that education minister Thomas Wells increased the provincial education budget ceiling by $20 million on March 20th contradicted Auld’s claims. Auld failed to elicit any sympathy from the UW audience when he claimed that the 5% salary cut he took from his $40,500 salary would force him “to seek handouts and free meals”. The University of Toronto student administrative council, reacting to continuous statements from. the government whereby the students should pay agreater cost of their education than the taxpayers, made the reasonable interpretation that the tuition fees would have to be increased. The cost of education for a first year arts student is 1 BIU or $2,111, an undergraduate engineering student is 2 BlUs or 84,222, an optometry student is 3 BlUs or $6,333 and a PhD student is 6 BlUs or $12,666. If the students are required to pay more than the taxpayer then the tuition fee would have to cover more than 50% of the cost, which would mean a range in tuition fees of $1,055.50 to $6,333 depending upon the course of study. SAC, in a bold ‘advertising campaign, confronted the government on what they were saying. Davis and Auld were quick to respond that SAC was wrong, but failed to explain what the government meant by making students pay more for the cost of their education than the taxpayer. While the government claimed that accessibility to universities is to be maintained Auld refers to high school graduates as “warm bodies who may not be qualified.” Auld’s statements are contradictory to those voiced by fellow cabinet minister Wells, who praised high school graduates: “Compared to when most of us were in school, they’re more articulate, moresaware, and just plain smarter. They have more depth, more background and more hard knowledge. They can think better, reason better, make decisions better and learn better”. H. W. Jackson, director of college affairs in the ministry of colleges and universities, delivered a further blistering attack on universities to the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario this past weekend. (The story is documented on page 1.) No one would argue that the university system in the province could not be improved upon, but the misinformation and slander propagated by thepresent government, serves only to increase rather than to alleviate the problem. A very frustrating aspect of the present situation is that the ministry of colleges and universities, instead of serving and defending its portfolio, is instead attacking the system for which they are responsible. 1 The job of government is to offer leadership and try to alleviate misunderstanding among the various sectors of society. ,Not only does the present Tory government of Bill Davis fail to pursue this objective, j but the government willfully misinforms the public about the true state of affairs of the,universities to create greater tensions for their- political gain.

feedback

I was slightly disturbed when I read the criticisms levelled at the Chevron for it being a leftist paper. Since my views lean “a gauche” I, obviously, prefer to read news that is written with a viewpoint harmonious with my own. However, the essential point is that we need some nonstatus-&o-minded media channels. We can get all the straight news, with the slant that is dominant in our society, from money eating, metal boxes on many a street corner, While we are trying to live solutions and alternatives to technocracy, that world does continue to have a staggering effect on every facet of our lives. The chevron provides very readable accounts of a lot of old rope which is holding up this

A

institution and which pulls our lives this way and that. But the paper is too restricted in its scope, too university oriented. This little world of the U. of W. is a very small part of a much larger one. A leftist newspaper should help people learn what other-alternatives are being tried out there; what new, exciting doorways are being stepped through, how luxuriant the footpaths are beyond. Please don’t let leftism die at that graduation ceremony or down at the Manpower office. Nurture it. How comfortable, predictable and subdued our world will get without it; even more so than life is now! Could we bear that? Chris

Content is the sole responsibility of the chevron editorial staff. Offices are located in the campus centre; (519) 8851660, or university local 2331. We are only-able to fit a short masthead in the paper this week, so we’ll keep it short and sweet.
