According to Headlam the MSA tenants benefit from this grant because the complex is not fully assessed as a result of it, and so the taxes are not as high as they might be. However, the tenants make the point that they don’t receive full city services. There are some children from the complex who go to city schools, but other services like snow removal, and garbage collection are provided by the university -just like the villages and Hagey. Administrators have also told the MSA tenants associatioh that the complex was built on land originally zoned for industrial purposes from which the city expected a certain tax income. The university later had the zoning changed to institutional. .__ But the question remai&Why is MSA on-campus for some things and off-campus for others. And it is obviously an important one, since if the tenants can make a case that they do live on campus, instead of facing a 13.2 per cent rent increase they could be asking for a rebate. -neil
BC exam under fire written in good English and the passage was overblown and overcomplex. ” One professor complained of erratic marking. He noted also that those of his students who failed the exam wrote strong interpretive essays with grammatical errors; he suggested that the exams of those who passed may have been grammatically correct but mediocre in content. Essay topics for the exam were: What do you think is meant by the sense of community? and Are there ways in which man can control his destiny? The department defended the exam as “fair and in line with firstyear English standards.”

Forest remimanded & back on campus York lecturer Jeffrey Forest who was suspended and banned from the York campus November 21 has been permitted to resume his duties on condition that he ‘“keep the peace and maintain good conduct”, according to a letter addressed to him by York president Ian Macdonald. The letter has been placed in his file as a formal reprimand. In a IO-page reply statement he said “I reject your official reprimand” and “I shall continue to teach my classes until such time as I hear to the contrary.” Forest was arrested November 18 during a confrontation between Zionists and members of the York Student Movement, the student wing of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist). The Zionists attacked the YSM’s literature table in the university’s Central Square area. They were particularly upset by a publication called “Zionism is Racism”. . The YSM members defended their table and in the scuffle police arrested Forest and two other supporters, Jim Nugent and Barbara Nunn. The charge, against Nugent “causing a disturbance by fighting” was dismissed January 17. Forest’s trial was yesterday after press time. In his letter Macdonald had expressed concern for the university’s atmosphere of “free enquiry and freedom of expression”. In his statement Forest took the president to task on this and other points. “The incidents of November 4 and 18 were both initiated by others but you seem to have difficulty grasping this point,” he stated. “The Zionist thugs and their supporters attacked us and physically assaulted us.. . instead of taking action against the Zionist thugs and their supporters, you took action against me.” . . . “In your letter you say I have recourse to campus security for my protection but, for your information, campus security was there November 18 and 21 and did nothing to stop’the attacks of the Zionists and their supporters. On the contrary . . . I and my comrades were arrested and now you are saying that the courts will decide who is the guilty party! Very interesting logic, indeed!” he continued. Forest says the York administration are working as a block with the Zionists, campus security and the Metro police to persecute the YSM and him for their political beliefs. He cited as evidence certain points about Nugent’s’ trial. He said the policeman who arrested Nugent testified that he had been summoned to York to stop a commotion of an unknown nature, however, it was later revealed that the officer had written in his notebook that had been sent to stop a “political rally or discussion”. According to Forest, at one time the police witness even suggested the disturbance was a result of the police presence. At this point, he said, “the judge decided to end the farce of the trial before the reactionary nature of the state and the nature and role of the state-organised anti-communist reactionary alliance at York University could be even more exposed.” Forest told the chevronthe York administration was preparing to fire him and likened the present situation to his dismissal from UW in 1975 in the “Renison Affair”, which was widely regarded as a political firing. A pamphlet has been published calling on students and faculty at York to support him, The introduction reads in part: “I need the support of all the justice-loving people who have the best interests’of the people in mind to support my case against the malicious political, social and academic persecution by the academic authorities, headed by president Macdonald. Please write letters of protest to president Macdonald, circulate this material to your friends and actively support my struggle .” Attempts to contact Macdonald for a rep_ly had not yielded any results by press time. qonathan coleq

_Sunnydale The rumour that the Sunnydale Bus Service was cancelled last week was proven false today after the chevron talked to Federation Vice President’ Don Salichuk. Salichuk, acting President for another week, said when CKMS Radio Waterloo received a callstating the bus service was shut down, they aired the announcement. Salichuk hearing it called CKMS tostop the rumour before it spread too far. The Sunnydale Service runs from the Math and Computer building to CKMS Radio Waterloo. From 8 loam and’9- 10: 30pm, the bus services an average of 50 students, 30 , of them regular users, for 15 cents. This service first started almost two weeks ago on the Thursday after the big snow storm hit Waterloo. Salichuk is surveying how often the bus is used and when, and whether the service should be modified. Salichuk says it seems to be used most often when the weather is poor, especially if there are northerly winds blowing. If the service has to be cut, the Vice President said it will hopely not affect

Financiai support should be made available to all students at graduate calibre and not restricted to fewer students at the top percentile.” A third major item on the Grad Club’s joining the recently formed Ontario Graduate Association (OGA) was presented by Bob Pajkowski, vice-president of the Grad Club. Three motions were introduced and adopted unanimously. The General Meeting voted to support the formation of the OGA, to authorize the holding of a referen-
dum, to be held April 30, on the assessment of a fee for the OGA, and to support the position of the OGA taken in opposition to the government’s OSAP proposals. The administration’s recent proposal to increase the intercollegiate athletic fee by two dollars was also dealt with by the graduates. It was decided- to oppose the increase in the fee and to reaffirm a position taken by the 1975 Annual General Meeting which requestedthat the university make the fee refundable. John Omara presented a report on an administartion organized health plan to provide all graduates with coverage for drug, optical Andy dental care. The plan, which will require a compulsory fee assessment, was accepted by the members. -david

Litpiid c~stid!! are I mmin@ of .agh In the recent electronicsrevolution, the promising field of liquid crystals (those substances which display the eiectrical and optidall properties of crystals although being liquid) has .only been applied to flat alphanumeric displays (as in solid state watch faces and calculator readouts). A large American -military corporation has recently developed a liquid crystal cell. which can modulate the illumination from a separate light source. Although only in its infancy, this system has the potential of larger and brighter screen projections than those presently possible with conventional cathode ray tube dis; plays and has the added advantage of longer life. The following is_ a working description of the device being marketed by Hughes as reported in the Jan. 2 issue of A.W. & S.T. In order to understand the description of this device some explanation of technical nomenclature is first recommended. Normal light vibrates in all planes along its direction of travel. Polarized light is light which vibrates in only one plane because of the filtering out of the other components. Nematic liquid crystals are one of the three types of these substances and are characterized by some disorder in the alignment of the individual crystal molecules. White light from a high intensity zenon source, after being focussed, passes through a polarizing filter that directs ahorizontally polarized beafn at the front face of the Liquid-crystal light-valve- The back Face of the cell is optically coupled my means of a fiber-optic bundle to :he screen of a small cathode’ ray ube that ‘writes’ the desired dis3lay on the cell. . If the cathode ray tube is dark, the horizontally .polarized beam From the light source is simply reflected with the same polarizatiori :hrough the prism to the light source and no light reaches the proection screen. When the electron beam of the 2.R.T. is energized and deflected :o generate a display on the CRT screen, this causes a rotation in the srientation of the nematic liquidcrystal molecules in a pattern idenical to that generated by the :athode ray tube (CRT). When the -horizontally polarized ight beam reflects off the imposed Jattem on the front of the lightgalve, it will have its polarization sotated so that it will pass through .he prism to the projection screen. The m%agnitude. of the liquid:rystal rotation determines the col)ur of the imagery produced, and his in turn is influenced by the light ntensity of the electron beam writng on the--r- face of the CRT. -The liquid-crystal light-valve is-a nulti-layer sandwich consisting of he outer fiber-optic face plate, a hin transparent conductive elecrode layer, a photo-conductive ayer, a light blocking layer, a dielectric mirror, the nematic iquid-crystal material, another ransparent electrode and finally nother glass cover with antiseflective coating (see diagram). When a bias voltage is applied Lcross the two transparent elecrodes and the cathode ray tube ‘ace is dark; the bulk of the voltage lrop occurs across the photo:onductive layer and there is little roltage across the liquid crystal naterial. -However, when the electron )eam of, the CRT is-aimed at one ;pot on the cell, the resistance of he photo-conductive layer at that ,pot drops sharply so that asa re;ult the bias voltage is impressed nostly across the ‘liquid-crystal I naterial . -This in turn causes the liquid rystal molecules at .that spot to
twist, which alters-the polarization of the light directed at the cell from the zenon light source. Thus a spot is projected at the .cell from the zenon light source.. Thus a spot is projected onto the projection screen. The more intense the spot of light produced on the CRT face, the greater the voltage ‘drop across the liquid-crystals and the greater the twist of the individual molecules, which produces a different colour in the reflected zenon light ‘projected onto the screen. The initial price for such a unit is currently 150,000 dollars but the Armed Forces in the U.S. are funding research into lowering the initial cost of the liquid-crystal lightvalve. Given the present state of affairs in the electronics industry. (205% price reduction per year due to advancing production technology and techniques) it seems quite possible that within a decade these systems will begin to replace tele.vision tubes and homes may see whole room walls devoted to such displays. . 4v.r.

.Con9missioner - pn campus:
Last Friday, Kenneth Lysyk, the commissioner of the pipeline inquiry in the Yukon Territory was at W.L.U. addressing about 75 High School teachers from the Waterloo Region. Last year when it became apparent that Alaskan natural gas could not flow in a pipeline through the MacKenzie valley, Lysyk was ap-a~----- pointed .head of a commission which was to quickly find out about the impact of a pipeline in the Yukon and the general attitude of the populace to this proposal.
Lysyk said that primarily his goal was to publicize the effect of the development to the residents of the south and to inform the inhabitants as to the probable changes to their homeland. In contrast to the multimillion dollar Berger commission which tbok almost three years to complete, Lysyk directed an inquiry which spent about 3/4 of a million and prepared a report very quickly. The inquiry was in two parts; the first a quasi-judicial fact finding hearing-which investigated the

technical and social impact on the whole area, with the second part being informal hearings in which the population as a whole was free to voice their concerns. This latter stage was quite extensive and over two per cent of the territory’s population was heard in this manner.
Yukon residents..Now, he related, this fund might be set up by the prepayment of taxes by the construction companies, but that the federal government would cut their support to the territorial government by an equivelant amount.
In the question period following the speech by Lysyk, the history teachers grilled him extensively. At this point, Lysyk voiced his con-. tern that the major points he recommended in his report would not be followed through by the federal government. In ’ particular the “Heritage Fund” was to be set up with 200 million of the oil companies’ money in order to preserve a reasonable standard of living for
Among his main concerns in his report was that a single allpowerful government agency should be set up to supervise everything that was related to the pipeline. Apparently the legislation now being introduced in parliament to accomplish such regulation will not be as all-encompassing as necessary. Lysyk, being the dean of law at U.B.C., can easily turn aside most questions. But he was forced to

The federation’s upcoming referendum on athletic fees (to be held simultaneously with the presidential election February 1) is a source of concern for the UW Athletic Advisory Board (AAB). At a meeting January 19, the AAB told federation representatives that the student population cannot be sufficiently informed to make a responsible decision on refundability of athletic fees in time for the poll. The referendum ballot will ask students if the athletic fee of $11 per term should be allowed to increase to $13, and if the fee should be refundable. The fee is presently a requirement of registration. UW president Burt Matthews asked the federation for an endorsement of the fee increase late last year. The federaion council responded by ordering a referendum on the increase and the compulsory nature of the fee. Matthews also approached the Graduate Club for endorsement of the increase. Despite the $47,000 deficit that could result without the increase, the Graduate Club board rejected the increase as unwarranted 0 At the AAB meeting January 19, there was heated debate about whether the intercollegiate program could surviye if athletic fees become refundable. Federation representatives Rick Smit, Don Salichuk and Nick Wedding argued that other organizations on campus, including the federation, must allow students to withdraw finan-’ cial support. There is no reason why the athletics program should not also be accountable. The AAB stated that under the “unstable” operating structure of refundable fees UW would have to withdraw from intercollegiate programs 0 The AAB voted to reaffirm their demand for the $2 increase (regardless of the outcome of the referendum) and to ask Matthews to appoint a committee to investigate methods of financing of the athletics program. The fee increase must be approved by the Board of Governors before it is implemented. Matthews told Smit January 23 that he would have to recommend the increase because of commitments the inter-

collegiate program has with “sister institutions”. Matthews also told Smit that the committee recommended by the AAB will consist of an associate dean as chairperson, representatives from the UW secretariat, financial services and the intercollegiate program, two undergraduate students and one graduate student. The committee will be asked to report by April 30 this year on the future of the intercollegiate program at UW, the feasibility of refundable fees for the program and the next three years of funding in particular. The results of the federation referendum will be submitted to the committee, which will also accept submissions from other campus groups. -rick

The 1977-78 Intercollegiate Athletic budget allows for a deficit of $30,878. This deficit would reduce the operating surplus to $2,888. At the current rate of spending, the deficit will be higher and restraints should be imposed immediately if the budget is to be met. On the assumption that the 1977-78 budget will be met, it has been used as the base of a proposed budget for 1978-79 which allows for a 6% increase in salaries and other expenses. The proposed budget does not provide for any upgrading of staff classifications or any ’ alteration of the percentage allocations of salaries among HKLS, Intercollegiate Athletics and Intramural Athletics and Recreation; both these steps had been recommended in the first proposal I received from Paul

China Week speak&
Greene lecture ,sparks vigorous I
The inevitability of war between the United States and Soviet Union has necessitated China’s changed domestic and foreign policies, Felix Greene told a UW audience last Thursday. Both Greene’s views and the structure of the meeting were attacked by members of the AIA, and others, during the course of his lecture and the question period that ensued. / Greene, well known ‘fChina watcher”, was speaking at a meetng sponsored by the Chinese Stulents Association as part of the Xna week activities. Greene noted Soviet war preparations, citing as an example that :hey launch one nuclear submarine a month. He contrasted this to the’ United States, which he said were nerely keeping pace with the soviets. He said the U.S. was tampered by what he called “the rauma of the Vietnam war”, so hat they could only deploy their armies in defence. “And- the Russians know this,” le added. He predicted that the two superbowers would come to conflict in he near future since-both will be elying on foreign sources for over LO percent of their oil. It is in view of this international lituation that the Chinese want to Lave a more sophisticated army, nd thus must improve its producion and change its education lolicies, said Greene. He told the audience to take Yestern press reports that China Las made a swing to the right “with’ grain of salt, perhaps several rains of salt.” ~On education, he drew attention 3 a leaflet ,denouncing the educaon changes distributed before the leeting by the Anti-Imperialist Alante. He said the change “makes erfect sense to me”.

Rick Smit I was elected President of the Federation of Students last October 25, and at the same time the Federation fee was made refundable by a margin of 285 votes. On May 1 this year, refundable fees will become a reality, and I sincerely hope that you will consider carefully your decision about whether to remain in the student union. A lot of concessions were gained by student unions in Canada during the sixties, and it would be disappointing to see student governments weakened by refundable fees. Other universities are watching us very closely to see how we deal with “the new * reality’ ’ . I am running for re-election as President of a Federation that can remain active and viable in this new reality of accountability-. I have been in office for about three months, and during that time I have found the position to be stimulating and challenging. The Federation has been able to improve relationships with the societies, reduce the-number of council employees, work towards a separate radio station with an FM licence, utilize more volunteer workers, work towards a higher quality of entertainment despite some gross financial setbacks which were handed to me by my predecessors, improve the image of the Federation and encourage openness in our dealings with you, the students. We have instituted an experimental bus service between campus and the Sunnydale area, and a “mass transit study” has been prepared for the Waterloo city council in an effort to improve municipal bus service to this and other areas of town. The Federation is continuing the Toronto bus service in spite ofthe uncertain condition which now exists as to the legality of the service. Those of you who read my letters to the chevron will know my stand on that paper. I must stress, the impetus for change in the chevron must come from within; You should make an effort and go down and volunteer your services; only you can make the paper change, only you can make it work. What does a president of a student union do to work for, “you the students”? The job is very subjective and one must stress importance and urgency on issues that you personally identify with. The greater the ability one has to remain objective is the difference between doing a good or fair job, and to be a bad President means that one really made some gross errors in judgement or was undeniably corrupt. I feel that I have a better than average record concerning judgement calls, and I know that I have been very honest when dealing with the administration of the budget. The job consists of a portfolio of various projects that one compiles. My portfolio presently consists of the Society coffee and doughnut stands, the Intercollegiate Athletic Fee, the Radio Waterloo incorporation, budgetting under refundable fees, the United Trails buses, the Sunnydale bus, new regulations for licenced outlets, a new agreement concerning the South Campus Hall Pubs, the CC pub and what to do with it, the chevron investigation commission (which appears to be stalled because of various members), the Ontario Federation of Students, cosponsorship of a number of active student groups or clubs, Watoloto (a student run lottery that will run when/if I am re-elected); and several other fdes which deal with the administration of the Federation of Stu\ dents. I want to be a good student president, so for the past three months I have been doing a lot of searching and talking in order to determine what the students want.
The most frequently aired complaint surprisingly enough is about the CC pub. It is a perenial problem which will not change unless we get more space. I -am planning a questionaire which will include several questions about the pub and desired changes. The next most important item which I have heard is a call for more concerts. This is very possible and the next budget will include provisions for at least four major concerts with top name performers. I tend to concentrate much of my energies on entertainment because I feel it is one of the most visible and important parts of a student federation. Entertainment will improve greatly and that is a promise that you can hold me to. Past administrations have been very big on the Board of Education. I believe that there should be a large sum of money budgetted for the co-sponsorship of active student groups. I feel that by doing this the extra curricular educational symposiums, speakers, and conferences will be those that the students want. The greatest problem facing the Federation is the perenial one of no continuity. The fact that administrations change so often cause gaps in communication which gives the Federation the appearance of fluctuating position on certain matters. I like this job of being president and I hope that I can bring c’ontinuity to a Federation which is desperately in need of it. I probably will continue to be very opinionated and eruptive at times, but I don’t perceive that as a liability. I think that the students at this University want a strong person who is not afraid of responsibility or making decisions. I believe that I am the best person for the job and I would very much appreciate your support on February 1. Thank You , Rick Smit

Communicating understanding IS MORE IMPORTANT than brevity for the sake of lower printing costs - when presenting a presidential candidate statement on such important matters as resolving students’ needs and promoting students’ interests. Therefore my following statement emphasizes clarity of my policies for your consideration and vote decision. Students need jobs! Therefore‘ power centre on campus.

I will immediately finalize implementation of this project by a) sending the necessary formal letter of invitation from your president to Mr. Green, and b) request the University President to immediately do likewise. Thus, students will have this job availability benefit - soon after my election. Students’ interest: “entertainment”. quires “communication”

Further policy 1) Co-op programs:
Our Federation should be actively co-operating with and assisting the University administration wherever po’ssible to initiate more co-op Programs. This can mean more job opportunities for students. 2) Foreign students and their problems can be assisted by the formation of a special committee of Foreign students to advise the Federation for subsequent action. 3) Day care: Married students can form a committee to formulate their special problem assistance requests. They are -students also and deserve a Federation interested in and acting in their interests. 4) OSAP-OGAP: The Federation’s continued active involvement with OFS and NUS in these programs must be continued.

There are now only two candidates for federation president. Integrated Studies councillor Sam Wagar withdrew from the race Wednesday and threw all of his support behind Environmental Studies councillor Janet Rokosova’s campaign. In a statement addressed “to all my supporters and students at large” he said: “I thank you all for your support for me and for the ideas on which I ran during this election campaign. I can’t express the depth of my , gratitude to you all in mere words. I have decided to withdraw from the campaign and throw all of my energy into electing Janet Rokosova President of the Federation of Students. After discussions with Janet and her campaign manager Larry Smylie I have decided that she has a platform of issues and policies that are so fully directed at fulfilling student needs-and promoting student interests. It is essential that we elect a president who will listen to the students and societies and learn to clean up the mess. The federation cannot survive another year of Smit. Undoubtably as her platform becomes more known to student voters it will be the winning platform in the election, as a vote for Rokosova is in my opinion a vote for oneself. All students will recognise this I hope. Thank you all and best wishes.” ,’ Correction Last week we said, incorrectly, that the election would be held Feb. 2. In fact, the final decision between Janet Rokosova and incumbent Rick Smit will be Wednesday, Feb. 1.

St. Valentine’s Day7
This year, from Wednesday February 1 through to Saturday February 4, in a tradition almost as old as the University itself, the FASS Company’ presents The St. Valentine’s Day Fassacre, a show filled with song, dance and hilarity. The theme of this year’s show centres -around the Roaring Twenties and the gangland activities associated therewith. Characters such as Jimmy Molson, Shirley T. Goodness; Roquefort Vasilino, Fart-ah Forcett and Charles U. Farley will entertain and delight theatre-goers of almost any age. Actually, much of the humour might be wasted on . those over 11 but we encourage you to come out and see it anyway!! This may well be the theatrical happening of the year, as seven (7) fassacred songs are up for such prestigious awards as Perry’s Plageristic Performance Plaque, the Strangely Familiar Tune Trophy and the “Father Will I Vomit” Award, presented for the total destruction and/or desecration of a previously popular song.
When approached for comment regarding this year’s production, FASS President Tom Hocaliuk broke down into tears, of joy, sobbing that he had never been associated with anything quite so beautiful. Upon checking on his story it was discovered that Tom had-just been released from the Primate wing of the Psychology building and that his comment, though possibly valid, should nevertheless be taken with a barrel of salt. Some outside drama critics were heard remarking that this year’s script is at least twice as good as last year’s popular - “Star Travesty”, which leads this writer to urge all those within eyeshot of this article to bust their-butts on over to the Modern Languages Central Box Office to pick up tickets so that they, can find out for themselves. Buy now, regret not later!! Be the first on your block to own a FASS souvenir quality ticket. Save it for the kids! -david
The UW Arts Centre reports that tickets for the concert of Christopher Parkening , North America’ s leading classical guitarist are selling briskly, but there are still a few good seats left for his concert on Thursday, February 2 in the Humanities Theatre. His last appearance here in February 1975 was a sell-out with seating on stage. There will be no stage seating for this performance. ’ Parkening, who first commanded national attention when still in his teens, has been acclaimed by Andres Segovia, the master guitarist of the century -“Christopher Parkening is a great artist - one.of the most brilliant guitarists in the world. ’ The lanky blond, young artist is California-born. He took, up the guitar at age eleven with his first teachers the Spanish concert guitarists, Celedonio and Pepe Romero. At fourteen he entered the annual state-wide auditions, of the Young Musicians Foundation. The judges included Jascha Heifetz, Gregor Piatigorsky , Mario Castelnuova-Tedesco and others. Although there was no category at
that time in which Parkening could compete, the judges were soimpressed with his virtuosity that he was scheduled as a special “out-ofcompetition” performer. His excellence in the Bach Chacone was the sensation of the auditions. Parkening was accepted as a scholarship student by Andres Segovia in,a Master Class at the University of California at Berkely. Segovia chose him from three hundred students present to perform daily before the class, and later selected him as soloist when the Master Class was televised nationally. He attained a second full scholarship to a Segovia Master Class at the Winston Salem, North Carolina School for the Arts. Segovia also invited Parkening to serve with him on the judges’ panel at the International Guitar Competition in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. He gave two concerts there and each time the great maestro personally presented him to the Spanish audiences. These performances won Parkening an.ovation from both audience and press and concluded with the young Ameri-. can judge being awarded a silver plaque and other honours the Spaniards would have conferred only upon the first-prize winning contestants!
- 4 P.M.
- Recent concert season’s have found Parkening on tour in the USA concert halls and on university and college campuses. He has been soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony, and was featured on television with the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in November 1972 and returned to the same hall in February ‘74. Both events were sold out occasions for enthusiastic audiences and critics. In 1972, Parkening also completed his first tour of the principal cities of Japan where his recordings are extremely popular. The artist’ s international celebrity has been greatly increased by five recordings for Angel Records: “In the Classic Style, “In the Spanish Style”, “Romanza” and ‘ ‘ Parkening Plays Bach’ ’ . In the fall of 1974, saluting the artist as a best seller, Angel issued another. disc “The ChristopherParkening Album’ ’ . His latest recording for Angel is entitled “Parkening and the Guitar” and was distributed in November 1976. Tickets for his Waterloo concert are $6.50 (Stu./Sen. $4.50) available at UW Arts Centre Main Box Office, Bishop’s Style Shop, Stanley Park, Kitchener and KW Symphony Office. .

may be-the choice of the Paris Church of Saint Eustache (the site of the 1855 premiere) as the recording location. I remember my first reaction to\ this LP was one of horror and disgust. The echo makes it difficult to hear the words, and even more difficult to sort out the orchestra or any of the instruments; Despite all this, the performance is impressive, and one can imagine the awe inspired in a live performance when one is overwhelmed by a great morass of sound. The tenor is not well-recorded; he is too distant, and some of his range is lost, unfortunately. Also, -the choir in the Te Ergo Quaesumus sounds rather perverse, and reminds one of the satanic choir at the end of the “Damnation of Faust”. The performance is not actually all that bad, and I’m sure most of the disc’s. problems would have been alleviated by considerations of recording and recording site. The best thing to do though, is to buy the Davis version - a bit of advice that would hold well for, I think, any work by Berlioz. -oscar

‘One day Vera showed us a photograph of so@e local Gestapo men, which had come into her hands. The photo-, graph had been taken when they were in the country outside Prague for a day’s holiday. The young men‘were ranged in two rows in their neat uniforms, and they stared out at us with professional/y menacing but unhappy eyes from that recent past now dead.

to your teenagers \
&driving to your parents
We all know going out is fun, and no parent wants to take away those good times. But these days, with teenagers in and out of cars so much, it% crucial that , they understand the dangers of drinking and driving, and that they can avert _ potential trouble by making the right decisions. . First, set your son or dauihter straight on this often-misunderstood fact: beer, wine and spirits-in excess, all three are just as-dangerous on the road. A good way of avoiding trouble is to plan ahead. Suggest that your teenagers review their evening before going out. If ‘they see drinking involved, far better to leave the car at home than to take chances later behind the wheel. . Far better also to say no to a drink, to refuse to drive, or to turn down a . _ lift with an impaired friend than to go along with the crowd and maybe regret it. I You can support your teenagers and give them confidence by letting them t know that if they ever need help you’ll go’ for them, pay their cab or do whatever is ‘necessary to get them home safely. ’ Most important, be a good example. Never drive if you’ve had even-.-one drink too many. Better still, don’t let it come to that. Know your liinit and stay within it.
If you’re not of legal drinking age, don’t touch a drop. But if you are, and you drive, then you’re old enough to do your part in reaching an agreement with your parents on the subject. Sure they worry. Because even if you don’t drink, others in your group may. i The friend driving you home one night may’have had too much. Show that you’re e+qually cbncerned. Get serious. For instance, what have you read lately about the dangers of drinking _ and driving? Do you know how much beer, wine or spirits your body can safely handle before your judgment becomes impaired? Do you know the law in your province? And what happens if you break it? Get the facts-and discuss them calmly. Then take the initiative and propose a few family ground rules. e No driving if you’ve been drinking -beyond your limit. (We’ll send you a valuable free chart on responsible limits if you write us.) No riding with a friend who’s been drinking. And convince your parents if a situation ever turns you won’t hesitate to phone for help. Finally, remind your parents you’re concerned for their safety, too, and that the family rules on drinking and driving apply to them, as well,

The Task Force on Corporate Responsibliity , an ecumenical coalition of the major Canadian churches, has been trying to persuade the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce to stop making loans directly to the South African Government as well as its crown corporations. Henry Oppenheimer, the South African mining magnate, was on the board of directors of the bank until recently, and the Bank also has an interlocking directorship with Noranda through Alfred Powis.

still agreed to sign. After all, we do manage to become friends through this business of studying and teaching, and friends should help one another, especially when times are tough. Campus bankers with whom I’d consorted in the past used to tellme what good risks graduating students were. After all, they were on their way to jobs, and good ones too. Apparently either the finished product of our schooling can no longer make it, or else the jobs just aren’t there to be had. And with their static or declining salaries, professors might quite rightly be regarded as mendicants rather than the solid middle class they once were. The student could now have his loan - at 13 l/2%. I looked a little startled. The loans officer explained that they would only have charged 12 l/2% if the student already had the job which he needed the loan to buy the suit to get. Even a pocketful of professorial Swiss bank accounts couldn’t save him that 1%.

When staff members heard about the CSA meeting, many assumed that there would be a biased article printed in the next chevron. The move by the block to censor a letter critical of the AIA is old now, but it is scary to hear that in December at a meeting to oppose racism, Doug Wahlsten talked openly of forming a committee to censor feedback letters. It is also funny to hear that Wahlsten gave a directive for the group to write more letters to the chevron denouncing those who write against them. Hence the current spat of letters written by “a friend of Karl Marx” etc. It is very interesting that when Rick Smit attacked the AIA block in a letter, the chevron staff came to the AIA’s defence with an editorial against Smit. After it was learned that the editorial was a piece of trash, at least two staffers who had signed it felt that they had been misled. And because the AIA was constantly being attacked by professor Reinis, the chevron had to jump in and allow the block to publish a personal dig against Reinis as a comment. .The chevron even allowed these cowards the right to have the fiist unsigned comment. In the past these same people have argued that a comment they happened to disagree with (on Marxism and Christianity) should not be printed because not enough students would be interested in it. Printed as a letter, it became one of the biggest debates in the feedback section ever. Now they write and pass a piece of dribble as a comment. The chevron also prints press statements fro’m ZANU. Surprisingly, the CPC-ML support ZANU as opposed to other guerilla organizations in Rhodesia. Further, staff got quite a shock last week when Docherty changed his mind about the paper separating from the federation. He tried to convince staff that we should remain linked. I believe he is selling the chevron down the river to suit his party politics which links the government and the press (i.e. PEN, Albania). Many of the staff have aisotired of the chevron’s cheap sloganeering. The CPC-ML/PEN/chevron slogan: “Defend the basic interests of the students”, besides scaring off students from joining the -paper, has served well to alienate, not unite staff. I do not see any credibility left in the leadership of the chevron. Much of what went on at the CSA meeting is evident on the chevron. It is hard to argue with absolutists. No wonder Adrian Rodway resigned as editor in 1976. Randy Barkman On Mr. Barkman’s comments against the chevron: The problem for Barkman’is that he is in a minority position on the chevron staff. Despite the frequent use in his letter of phrases like “many staff members” the hard fact of life for him is that on important decisions he has been unable to convince a majority of staff to side with him. On some occasions he has even found himself Sn‘a minority of one. Such as when the staff decided to ban RCMP ads and he argued that we shouldn’t because the police protect the people. So unable to win a majority to his various positions Barkman has had to resort to writing laments to the Gazette and the chevron telling the world how good he is and what a sorry state the chevron is in. In this letter he has degenerated to the same level as our worst enemies during the free chevron days. He offers the logic - AIA believes this-the chevron does this-so we can only conclude AIA controls the chevron. He even resorts to one of Shane Roberts’ original lies that Adrian Rodway was forced off the paper in 1976. What Barkman cannot stomach is that a majority of staff voted over two to onefpr the editorial against Smit’s antics. It must also churn him up that the ZANU statement received majority approval, and the same with the comment on the Reinis claim that the queen must be a.part-time worker. But worst of all for him is that the majority of staff uphold the position that the chevron should defend the basic interests of students. Barkman should take our editorial against Smit to heart. If he is going to continue to hang around as a federation executive member then the irate Mr. Barkman should take out his wrath on the Ontario government and the UW administration for ttieir - cutbacks, tuition
hikes, fraudulent proficiency exams, outrageous rent increases, lack of jobs, increased workloads, and other attacks. All issues on which, as we said in our Jan 13 editorial “neither he (Smit), the federation executive, nor the students council has uttered more than a peep. Under my leadership the chevron will continue to take on these basic questions facing students, and I fully expect that this situation will bring laments evermore from Randy Barkman. , -Neil Docherty Editor
ISA meeting disrupted! On Dex1977, the executive of the International Students Association voted to hold election for the position of president of the association. All-attending the meeting agreed that the whob membership should be given a chance to-decide this issue and to discuss the activities of the ISA. This meeting which took place on January lo,1978 declared its support of the ISA program for the Fall of 1977, which included discussion and writing of letters against the government’s anti-immigrant Bill C-24, against the Ontario government’s differential fees for foreign students (see Chevron Nov. 10, 1977), a meeting against racist attacks, a meeting in support of the Zimbabwean people’s national liberation struggle against the racist and fascist Smith regime in Rhodesia, the setting up of a Zimbabwe * Support Committee which will collect blankets and bandages for Zimbabwe refugees in Mozambique and the holding of a holiday celebration for International students. This meeting of January 10, 1978 also saw Rick Smit and seven other students try to disrupt the work of ISA and try to claim that we International students don’t have a right to elect a president but that the Federation can automatically recognize an unelected official as president. We the undersigned declare our full support to the International Students Associa~tionandto-the elected president Aberra Makonen who was elected unanimously by the undersigned.

After watching the Chevron-federation conflict (not all feds just some) we believe that Janet Rokosova could unite both entities, .clean up the federation and have an active student federation. Rick Smit has proven he is incapable of this. Richard Brown and 12 others
In its entire history the Federation of Students has never had a woman president. J Only a person like Janet Rokosova, whohas been active on student council, who strongly disagreed with Rick Smit’ s attempts to ban the International Student Association, who disagrees with the constant Federation-Chevron conflict, and who supports refundable fees (because she knows she can do a job that students will support) can sort out the federation. ON FEBRUARY 2nd Vote for UW’s first woman Vote Janet Rokosova. Mary Lee Mary Sally . Heather

Out of my January 6 letter Reinis takes one half sentence: even those who only do “brain work” are part of the proletariat if they have to sell their ‘brain working power’ as a commodity to gain the means of subsistance”. From this he reaches the fantastic conclusion that the proletariat includes the Queen of England, the Prime Minister and others. This claim, like many other concoctions by Reinis, is so absurd that it could be refuted by any school child. Could this so called “professor” be so ignorant, so totally lacking in the most basic knowledge about political life, that he does not know that the queen and the P.M. are both rich and are paA of the exploiting class? I have studied-at this university for three years, but never before have I met a fool that could match “brain worker” Reinis. It is a disgrace that such a man is allowed to teach here. So that Reinis may begin his education, I have asked the chevron to reprint part of an article on the Queen of England from an earlier issue. Now one final word to Reinis: in your January 13 reply to my letter you claim I wrote “Reinis does not use his brain”, whereas I wrote “nobody can do any kind of work without using their brains (with the possible exception of Reinis)” . . . I must admit Reinis you are continuously winning me over to your point on this question. Salah Bachir
British anti-royalist labour MP Willie Hamilton claims the Queen is one of the. richest women in the world, “with wealth accumulated because no sovereign has paid death duties since they were introduced in 1894. “Elizabeth is also in the unique position of not having to pay a single penny in tax. “That fortune includes a staggering collection ofjewelry, investments in stocks and shares, bonds and gold bars held in bank deposits, priceless antiques, the greatest stamp collection in the world, houses, farms, forests and rich agricultural land. “In her art collection are 650 Leonardo da Vinci drawings - 25 per cent of those known in the world. “The woman with the choice of seven palaces and eight homes in which she may live and who has, among her many nicknacks, a gold plate valued at over $40 million, does not seem to be completely above’ business interests. “Eisenberg points out “ . . . even ordinary tourists visiting one of Soho’s famous strip clubs or restaurants are helping the Queen maintain the standards which she is accustomed to. For many of these London properties belong to her, and the rent from the owners of the clubs and restaurants there add up to the steady build-up of her vast_ personal fortune. ’ ’ /< chevron, July 5, 1976
MSA coverage On behalf of the Married Students Apartments Tenants Association, and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to-thank the chevron staff for the excellent research that they have done on the Married Students Apartments. Ever since the inception of MSATA in the fall of 1976, the chevron has reported events as they happened without aid, encouragement or thanks. We now wish to remedy that situation, first by offering our encouragement and thanks, and secondly by joining the chevron in studying the future of students in MSA, and all-over the province. I include such general remarks, for in our meeting with President Matthews, Linda Ross, Neil Docherty and I attempted to stress the sorry state that students would be faced with in the not-too-distant future unless present wrongs were made right.
We asked that the University join MSATA in asking the Ontario Government for a special grant to cover the incredible maintenance costs. We felt that Ontario Student Housing was negligent in accepting the MSA complex from Cadillac-Fairview (Many thanks again to the chevron - Editorial, December 2, 1977). This negligence has resulted in the high maintenance costs which the students must now pay for. President Matthews responded by noting that such a grant is unlikely, that the situation is the same all over, and that, “If you can’t pay the rent, get out.” Let this be a warning to all those who think that their sons or daughters may wish to go to university. The uncaring attitude evident in Matthews’ statement has been prevalent throughout MSATA’s discussions with the Administration of this University. Even though we attempted to sacrifice in certain areas last year in order to minimize the rent, the University did nothing. Many of us in MSATA were disheartened by the token decline in the rent increase. This year, we came to the conclusion that the University had sufficient manpower to make MSA- more efficient. There was no indication that anything had been done. The University will point out that rent in MSA is lower than the surrounding community. We know the figures, and they are irrelevant. At the present rate of deterioration, MSA will change very quickly from low-cost housing to high-cost slums. MSATA sees this problem and wants something to be done now! The chevron sees this problem and publishes articles and editorials publicizing it. The University looks at this problem, sees a deficit, and decides to raise the rent. I fear that the Administration’s preference of a balanced budget over students’ concerns has permeated the entire province. Higher tuition fees for foreign students and limited grants are certainly not programmes that will improve the vacancy rate at MSA. A balanced budget is such an important goal, that Matthews admitted that a closed building in the MSA complex is preferable to continued operations at a loss. So Imust say to your younger b&hers and sisters, who may get married while at UW, be prepared to look around for accommodation. To those who have followed reports on the funding and support of university students (and of course who care about the availability of university education to poorer students), the trend is obvious: the Government has decided to limit university enrolment to those who can best afford it. To prevent this from happening, students as a group should support anyone or anything that speaks against cutbacks. Rent increases which occur merely to pay for past mistakes by the Ontario Govemment must be considered in this category. Unfortunately, the Federation of Students has had its share of internal problems recently. Therefore, we must support the only organization that has any voice at all - the chevron. This paper has been criticized for its coverage of international affairs, and lack of coverage op domestic issues. Yet, I have no complaints as to the excellent coverage that MSA has received. There is a large number of students living at MSA, who have all been served by the news coverage of the chevron.
P.S. Any viewpoints expressed are not necessarily those of everyone in MSATA. Please come out and support us: Board of Governor’ s meeting - Tuesday, Feb. 7, 10:00 am, NH 3rd floor.

Rick Smit made a big deal about former ISA president, Salah Bachir, not being a student, as an attempt to suppress the work of the International Students’ Association. Well, Smit you are a real hypocrite! Your main spokesperson and your Board of Publications Chairperson, Randy Barkman, is not a student; but he’s okay for all he does is attack the chevron. Huh? It’s only “those people” who investigate the differential fee hike, racist attacks, racist immigration policy (whit h Mr. Barkman was so quick to defend last week) and support Zimbabwe people’s national liberation struggle, those people have to be suppressed, huh Smit? To paraphrase your last sentence from your letter last week Smit, Hypocrite! “Get thee gone to” Rhodesia, “puke!” Mae Chong
I have not been around for hundreds of years in Radio Waterloo, the federation, chevron, or anywhere else. I simply believe its time for dialogue between the federation and the chevron and more important between the federation and its members. I am a second year Engineering student and can’t really believe that calling people turkeys, throwing snowballs at their windows and writing such trash as “Get thee gone to Albania, Puke!” is going to solve anything. This is why this letter is against Rick Smit for president. A president who does that and doesn’t support refundable fees for the federation is a little much for me ! David
Fe& looked at closely Most of you who read the‘feedback columns on a regular basis will understand,my position with respect to certain individuals on the chevron, so I think I will cease my attacks and try to concentrate my writings on more productive measures. I might as well express my opinion about the Intercollegiate Athletic Fee. I have been working on this with the University since before Christmas and I personally feel that the increase of $2.00 (from $11.00 to $13.00) is warranted to maintain the present level of performance by our varisty teams. The compulsory or refundable nature of the fee will be considered by a special committee set by Dr.-Burt Matthews. You will have a chance to vote on this issue so please be responsible in your decision making process. Thank you for your support in the past, and I hope that I will be able to serve you better in the future. Rick

Smit a real hypocrite!
In the past Stanislav Reinis has taken up the mission of falsifying Marxism. He totally distorted what I said in a-letter to the January 6 chevron where I pointed out the division of capitalist society into primarily three classes. This Charlatan claims that I pointed out that “everyone is a proletarian”. I would like to reiterate the definition of each class to clear up any confusion that this idiot has created. Capitalist society is primarily divided into three classes, that is: 1) The proletariat: That is the class which is stripped of the ownership of the means of
production, of its management, goals a aims. It procures its means of livelihood s ely from the sale of its labour. Its livelihc is dependent on the demand for labour. 2) The petit bourgeoisie is that class wh owns its means of production, its own la] store, equipment for hire etc., (such a farmer, small store owner etc.) This clr owns the product of its own labour, such 2 person who makes handicrafts to sell, o professor who owns his own research. 3) The bourgeoisie is that class which ov the means of production and exploits labour of the proletariat. It employs a wor at a subsistence wage, a wage which ensu that a proletarian will returnand perform same tasks, with the same speed the n day. The bourgeois or capitalist class OF the product of the proletarian’s labour : sells it at a much higher price than the w paid the worker. The bourgeoisie owns the land, fact1 buildings, machinery and raw materials. ‘I proletariat has no ownership of the mean! production and hence has to sell its labc This is the basis of the exploitation of proletariat by the bourgeoisie. Thus the capitalist system is owned by rich, the bourgeoisie. It is their system.

The Waterloo Wanderers, of the Southern Ontario Women’s Hockey League, played Woodstock last Saturday night, and dominated the game from the start, winning 5-I.
The Warrior swim team now sports a record of eight wins against no losses as they up-ended a visiting University of Alberta squad. The dual meet was held in Toronto because the Golden Bears just got off the plane from Edmonton. Their jet lag was evident from their swimming -as Waterloo won just about every event. Individual victories were had by Ron Cambell, Dave Heinbuch, Brian -Harvey and Murray White. Next Friday the Warrior fans are in for a real treat as the Swimmers will take on the Varsity Blues of Toronto. Not only is U of T the defending O.U.A.A. champion they are also Waterloo’s greatest swimming rivals. Come to the PAC pool February 3 and cheer the Warriors to victory.
Mary Campbell opened the scoring at the forty second mark of the first period, assisted by Helen Mackey and Cathie Hanna. Roberta Hull scored near the end of the period, assisted by Campbell and Mackey , and again in the second unassisted. Barbara Campbell scored in the second, assisted by rushing defenseman Donna Smith. Cathie Hanna scored on’a perfect pass from-Hull in front of the net. Woodstock spoiled the shut-out with 3:44 remaining in the game on a defensive error by the Wanderers. Goalie Lynn (Bubbles) Preston was called upon to make some key saves near the end of the game,

Ten minutes lose I game--..
In Guelph last Tuesday, the basketball Athenas lost to the University of Guelph. Coach Sally Kemp feels they lost the game in the first ten minutes. The team was down by sixteen points and never managed to come back. Guelph used a very effective full court defense. UW could not manage to break through. The players’ timing was off a bit so they weren’t breaking to the ball at the right moment. Kemp also thinks it was perhaps a mistake to wait so long to make substitutions. The score at the end of the first halfwas 38-20. The Athenas never succeeded in bridging the gap, and Guelph outscored them in both halves to win 78-49. This past-Saturday, UW played a much better game against the University of Ottawa. The first half, they played super basketball to come up with an eight point lead at half-time. The second half, however, the team started to fade and just couldn’t get going again. U of Ottawa were also using a full court press, which the Athenas did break through.Unfortunately, they couldn’t make it pay off with a basket. Ottawa tied up the score and then went ahead to take the lead by ten points. A time out allowed UW to change their defensive tactics. They went out and played hard to tie up the game again. Mental errors and a slowing defense contributed to the eventual loss of the game. Defensively, the players were getting tired, which caused them to reach in and foul. This made a big difference in the final score as Ottawa made 13 points from the foul line in the second half, and Waterloo only dropped one in. The Athenas took too long to re.-establish themselves on the court and didn’t want to win badly enough till the last seconds of the game. Ottawa had possession of the ball with 46 seconds to play and UW knocked it out of bounds. Ottawa regained possession, so’ Waterloo wasn’t able to play them for the-tie with so little time left. The Athenas lost the game by only four points. It was a crucial game for them to lose. Had they won, it would have put themxon easy street in terms of standings and qualification for the Ontario Finals in February. From the coach’s point of view, the women showed they could play together as a team and could come back from being down. She sees the team as being back in the growing stages, as shown by the improved team play. The players them*selves will have to work extra hard at their conditioning to’make sure they don’t tire out in the second half. This week the Athenas will be travelling to Windsor and Western. These games will be very important in determining the final stand- ings for this division. Their next home game will be Wednesday February 1 in the evening in the main gym of the PAC. -‘b’
