Frosh misadventures We are new here. We didn’t even know what frosh meant - maybe a watermelon popsicle. Our first encounter with the university was a cold, heartless, fruitless search for our humble home away from home. This domicilary visit began at the student housing office of the great University of Waterloo. After several days of disheartening, negative responses to our phone calls to prospective landlords, it came to light that the housing list was useless. Spotting a newly-posted listing, we noted the address and frantically made contact. We made a superficially ironclad agreement with the respectable gentleman. Quite pleased with ourselves, we travelled the 300 miles home in record time to tell ‘mommy and daddy’ of our fun. . . but when we attempted to present our first month’s rent we discovered that the apartment had been leased, in our absence,-for an added profit. “Gadzooks,” I said, “we’ve been jimswiggled.” We were off once more. Our next deal to obtain residence was made by handing over a deposit to another homeowner, but a week later, he was kind enough to tell us he had sold the hguse. We were again “out in the streets”. Our relaxed scramble for a place to live at !

..@confusion

the beginning of August had turned into a berserk grasping for the closest, cheapest place with room enough for a desk. We ended up with a 94th-floor “apartment” with cracked plaster and tilting walls about fifteen miles from campus. Though we dreaded the thought of our transportation difficulties, our hopes rose when we discovered how fast, personal, and cheap Kitchener Transit is. In just an hour and twenty minutes, we travelled the long three miles to school. Frosh and orientation week is consid ered by most to be the greatest start to the “upper” level life of the university, but when you are first year and off-campus the fu n of residence and faculty-organised activities is restricted and remote. Offcampus life is good for one’s studies but not for meeting people. We may even pass our courses to see the campus next term. The

A rather disturbing new trend has appeared in the initial flurry of fee refunds this term. A large number of people seem to be refunding their fees just for the mdney -not because they disagree with whatever the particular organization is doing, and not because they don’t benefit from the services it provides. For instance, of the students coming into the Federation office asking “where are the refunds” or “where is the money”, very few express any disagreement with what the Federation is doing. A lot of the people withdrawing their fees say they don’t get any benefit from the services provided. Although it’s certainly true that some students benefit from these organizations more than others, everyone benefits to some extent. Without a student union, students would have no leverage in bargaining with the government or the administration. Without a student paper, or a radid station, students as a whole would be worse off. Many of the people withdrawing their fees are getting them back from every organization with refundable fees. It’s a bit hard to believe these people when they say they aren’t getting their money’s wdrth from any org’anization on gampus. The example of CKMS further substan-, tiates the position that people take their fees back not because they don’t benefit, but for the bucks. Last term, CKMS made major improvements to their programming. This term, instead of dropping, CKMS’s refund rate has jumped substantially. One would expect co-op students to benefit as much as regular students from services like CKMS, the federation, and the

voice of experience WelLit is back to school timefor me the last tike I will ‘return’ to Waterloo’s hallowed grounds as an undergrad. It has been a good four-years and I am looking forward to this coming year. One of the big indications to me of the time passed since I began in 1974 was that I had to wait until last Friday while the two

chevron. If people take back their fee because they’re not benefitting from the services then why do far felver co-op students set refunds? Two major differences betlveen co-op and regular students are that co-op fees are half that of regular fees, and co-op students are, on the average, financially better off. This explains why more regular students are refunding their fee - they need the money. These people should keep in mind that the others, who keep in their fees, are affected by the poor state of the economy as well, and by copping out they are increasing the burden on everyone else. Refundable fees exist so that students who can’t morally sup’port an organization, or don’t benefit from what it does, can withdrati their support. The people refunding their fee for different, more mercenary reasons are putting the whole system of refundable fees in doubt. John Chaychuk Ciaran O’Donnell

and reflections

younger brothers were ferried off to their universities before I could get the family conveyance to ship all my junk to Waterloo. And I didn’t need to be part of orientation activities somewhere! Just come and register as one of the numberless thousands. Actually I should shower bouquets in the direction of the administration for the excellent organization of the registration process. I don’t normally register in person but I hadn’t learned that $494.95 was four hundred and NINETY four dollars and 95 cents rather than four hundred and four dollars and cents. Of course, the cheque couldn,t be 50 cashed . While I send bouquets to the administration for their registration, I send brickbats (though soft ones) in the general direction of scheduling. I had actually managed to have only two conflicts in six terms of schedules; this term though, I managed to ask for a coTtirse that conflicted with no less th an five of five other courses. Curses. However, permissible conflicts are lovely things. The whole process of coming back to school has become very relaxed and almost automatic. I don’t rush out to buy my text books first thing since they will be there in the bookstore a week from now and I won’t have to wait in line with what seems like everyone else on campus. Instead, the time is spent cleaning toilets and all of the accumulated grunge that a house almost neg-

lected for the summer gets, applying paint to brighten the place up, reorganizing furniture, building desks and the general settling in, Residences used to mean that wasn’t necessary for me, but on your typical student budget, who can affoid a maid? Some things don’t change though. A girlfriend in Vancouver marked “Product of Waterloo Co-op” must be written to. The Kitchener market or if you prefer, the Waterloo Market lets me know that I’m back in K-W. Bus fares are still cheaper than Toronto or Vancouver. The UW Arts Centre with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Moe Koffman, and concerts by Harmonium and my favourite artist Bruce Cockburn all beckon, and I’m determined to take advantage of them THIS YEAR! Maybe I’ll even make it to Cockburn. When classes start, I’ll go into the endless rounds of “how was your work term?” This year however a whole new set of questions begins, as my classmates and I try to figure out what we will be doing as we get ejected at the end of this conveyor belt education. (It is not really that bad. There are some very neat people on this university campus. Stop and talk to your departmental secretary and you’ll see. A bouquet to mine.)

Imprint For the second time in less than four months, highly confidential information has been left in public view by the math building loading dock. In May, several hundred student mark reports were left in the recycled paper drop there. Last weekend it was confidential minutes, tenure documentation and recommendations, and student’s exams.

Included in Fischer’s files were the documentation for several tenure decisions in the first half of the 1970’s. In one case, involving a professor still teaching here, the tenure advisory committee was unanimous in recommending that his appointment not be renewed.

. News Shorts Enrolment is down this year at UW, according to figures released at president Burt Matthews Tuesday press conference. Full time undergraduate enrolment has dropped from 13,708 last year to 13,367. However, the part time undergraduate enrolment increased from 3,698 to about 4,000. Graduate enrolment dropped from 1,180 to 1,130. Most of the drop comes in first year arts (130 students) and first year science (75 students). Engineering and math enrolments have increased slightly, -and the rest of the faculties enrolments are at about their previous level. Elizabeth Harris-Schwartz, a UW English student, has set up a new Canadian literary magazine. The magazine, called Totem, will focus on the liberal arts, and its first issue is scheduled for November. Totem will be published bi-monthly, and will contain photography, poetry, cuisine, crossword puzzles, reviews, interviews and more. The first issue will have an interview with Stratford actor Richard Monette, as well as poetry by Louis Dudek and UW student Miles Kesten. Subscriptions for Totem are only five dollars and are available in the orientation tent.

seem to be popular with the students. “The big improvement over last year is due to the tent,” says Donlon. “It’s visual - people can see that things are happening there, and it’s a focal point for orientation.” According to bonlon, the information booths inside the tent were being well-attended. The students running the booths, however, told a different story. “A lot of students are timid and fearful of joining ,” says UW choir president Valerie Nabb. “They don’t want to do anything or get involved; they’re all a bunch of chickens!” Choir and Band member Alan Bath echoes her comments, adding that many students are, “overwhelmed by the University atmosphere. They figure that all there is to it is courses and drinking.” Nabb added that the administration has eliminated the University’s music program, and that if students want to get ifivolved in the choir, they should do it soon.

Student mark information is also considered confidential by the university - access to it is restricted to the student and his academic advisors.

However, she did feel that Waterloo’s orientation program is the best in the province. “I’ve seen the others, and we have the fullest and most personable program around .” The orientation program has not been without it’s problems, however. “The weather hasn’t been on our side,” said Donlon. “It’s been cold and rainy, so we’ve had to move the entertainment inside.” The weather has forced orientation organizers t6 set up chairs inside the tent itself, to accommodate the students.

The hundreds of mark reports left in the dock area last May were the output of a computer run that had gone slightly awry. At that time, Mail Services manager Al Lawrence said that there were procedures for handling such information, including special pickup by the Physical Resources Group. However, independent sources ,confirmed that confidential information had been left in the loading dock area several times in the past. Ciaran O’Donnell

Donlon hopes that next year the orientation program will include a beer tent. “We had everything set up to do it this year, but then the LLBO (Liquor Licensing Board of Ontario) said no. Next year we hope to have some cooperative action with other Ontario Universities to put pressure on the LLBO.” The orientation events are not yet over. On the 16th, a “multi-cultural mardi gras” will take place, in-an attempt to “integrate the KW community with the university”. On the 21st, a panel discussion of UW administrators, student body representatives, and Ontario Federation of Students reps will be held to discuss the future of the University. Bernie Roehl


News The quest for a decent paragraph Thursday -- -

On Wednesday September 6, all first-year Arts and HKLS undergrads wrote the English Language Proficiency .Examination. The exam is part of the English Language Proficiency Program, a major educational effort pioneered at UW. This article is an attempt to explain what the program is, and to describe its history. The English Language Proficiency Program is composed of the exam and a remedial writing clinic. Programs similar to UW’s exist at the the University of British Columbia, the University of Toronto, and the University of Calgary. Both Erindale College in Toronto and the University of P.E.I. have adopted the English proficiency test developed at UW.

E

The Arts Faculty first established a task force to investigate “an apparent increase” in the number of students having trouble with writing skills in their courses in 1975. The first ELP exam was written next fall. Several educators have claimed that the average student’s academic ability (and writing ability in particular) has declined. In the US, scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), a test written by 11th grade high school juniors, have been steadily declining since 1963. Before then, scores had remained relatively constant. Universities testing the English proficiency of their first year students generally find thit between 40 and 50 percent have inadequate

writing skills. Here at UW, the claim that writing skills have declined has met with considerable opposition from the official student newspaper, the Chevron. They maintain that no scientific study has ever demonstrated a decline in writing skills. The Chevron claims that the Ontario Government’s “Secondary/Post Secondary Interface” study demonstrates that writing skills have not declined. They see the ELPP as a “fraud designed to assist the Ontario Government in its continuing campaign of cutbacks.” However, ELPP director Ken Ledbetter insists that the program is not based on the notion of declining writing skills, but rather on an increase in the absolute

number of students whose English needs improvemerit. Students who fail the exam are asked to attend the writing clinic. Each student attending the clinic works with a tutor on his specific writing problems. The student is asked to write short expository pieces with some time constraint. The tutor might then ask the student to identify his errors. The student learns to recognize and correct the errors -he does. not learn the grammatical terms for them. The student passes the clinic when his work demonstrates “the competence that the Faculty of Arts required.” According to ELPP documentation, 93 percent of those regularly attending the clinic passed. Although attendance in the clinic is voluntary, students must pass the exam or satisfy the clinic requirements before being allowed to graduate. The ELP test consists of two parts: a 300-500 word essay worth 60 percent, and a 40 question multiple “objective” test choice worth 40 percent. The purpose of the test is not to classify students according to different shades of ability but merely to separate those who need help from those who don’t. Typical essay topics include “How do your interests differ from those of your parents”, “Should,

the orientation Chevron, and this year’s version was very similar. Students whose essays were “marginal” are passed or failed on the basis of the objective part of the test. According to ELP documentation, they will be exempted if they score close to the mean objective test score. This relationship is said to be unintentional, and is said to be merely a result of how the marks work out. In January 1977, the passing overall mark was 40 percent and was arrived at by taking the average score on the objective test (20) minus one standard deviation (5), and adding the lowest essay mark indicating “any competence in writing at all.” 40 percent of those writing the test failed last year. This term the passing grade has been set at 50 percent. If the exam is of similar difficulty, this could cause a major jump in the failure rate. ELP statistics indicate that around 30 percent of the students scored between 40 and 50 percent in January. Ledbetter considers the ’ correlation between the two parts of the exam to be quite high. This appears to be the case for the January 1977 exam written by 380 students: of those who scored 1es.s than 16 out of 40 on the objective test, only one passed the essay test, and of those who scored over 25, only one failed.

some scientific experiments be banned”, and “What do you expect university to do for you.” The Writing Clinic tutors have been trained to mark the essays (Good, Ok, ‘Marginal, Needs help) largely through practice on sample papers. The following description of the marking system is taken from the ELPP Genera1 information manual: “Each essay is evaluated holistically and independently by at least three markers. If two of the three markers do not agree exactly on the mark, or if one of the markers is more than one mark away, the essay is read by a fourth, and in some cases a fifth, marker. Whenever particular markers diverge, additional training sessions are held.” In addition to spelling and grammar, the markers examine “focus, organization, and supporting idetail.” The markers also search for a “decent paragraph” - usually about six coherent sentences without major errors. Although the General Information Manual- claims that a “decent within the paragraph” student’s essay guarantees exemption from the clinic, Ledbetter says there is no such guarantee but that nonetheless, no student has ever written a “decent paragraph” and failed the objective part of the test. The objective part of last year’s test was reprinted in

Tickets for Little Oktoberfest at the Transylvania Club on Sept 29 are available at the Recreation Office, 415 Phillip St. Engineering Society The Imprint has obtained the quiet assurance of EngSot President Paul Johnson that the Ridgid Tool is safe. The Tool will preside over Engineering Week, November 4-11, as well as occupying the place of honour at other -EngSoc functions. Engineering week involves, among other things, a parade, pub rally and crawl, havenger stunt, and as the culmination of the week, the semi-formal November 11. See EngSoc for more information. Naturally there will be an abundance of Engineering-Nurse co-pubs during the term. These and other events will be advertised in the Imprint Campus Events as they come along. Orientation events have run smoothly. Over 200 people showed up for field day - special recognition to K sect 21-25 for winning the tug o’ war. The garbage pick up, pub trip, and bus push had poor but enthusiastic attendance. The few but mighty at the bus push completed the course

in 13 l/2 minutes. Prgsident Paul Johnson said these fellows “deserve a pat on the back”, presumably in lieu of professional chiropractic care for back strain.

“take it to court” if he was actually accusing him of assault but did not otherwise address the allegation. Rick Smit, Ciaran O’Donnell, Randy Barkman, Marc Nick Redding, McGuire and John W. Bast all testified that they had been at different times “denounced” by various members of the Chevron staff. This included name-calling and “verbal abuse.” Former Board of Publications secretary Sylvia Hannigan corroborated several instances of alleged verbal said that abuse and Psychology professor Doug Wahlsten had called her a “rumour monger.” Hannigan testified after she learned that the commission would not accept written submissions of testimony as’evidence. She was originally not going to testify because, she says, she felt she would be “intimidated” by “certain members of chevron staff” during cross-examination. Part of the Federation charges include the allegation that an “orchestrated campaign of letters” was directed against certain people at different times. Randy Barkman in his testimony spoke for some time on this subject but offered no proof that this had occurred. The commission did not accept it as evidence. Later however, Mark McGuire took the stand for a second time and testified about a meeting, purportedly held in the psychology lounge, which he attended with AIA member Salah Bachir. McGuire said that Bachir had required that he not tell anyone else about the meeting, and that people at the meeting planned what letters would be written for next week’s feedback. Salah Bachir was not present during the inquiry and the Chevron has not stated if he will challenge the allegation or not. O’Donnell also referred to a campaign directed against “reactionaries”. He alleged that he was told in confidence that Doug Wahlsten had called upon the membership of a Canada People’s Defence Committee (CPDC) meeting to write letters to the Chevron “denouncing the reactionaries on staff.” O’Donnell did not give his source to the commission. McGuire, in his three hour testimony said he had “verbally abused, been harassed and intimidated at different times.” He also said that the Chevron staff had reprinted several graphics without his permission and without giving him credit. He also stated that Jules Grajower- had ordered him to design a poster in “a certain way.” It was shown by Neil Docherty that Jules Grajower had no power to order him to do anything and McGuire subsequently agreed that it was he who had interpreted Grajower’s statements as orders. Docherty also maintained that once the graphic

had been printed by the Chevron, they had the right to re-print it. He used as an example, reprints from other papers that were used “without getting permissi’on.” McGuire also accused Chevron staff of “butchering” some of his graphics. Docherty analogized this to “cropping” photographs to meet space or content requirements. A previous Chevron incommission vestigation

the Chevron maintains that Dufault’s action essentially “destroyed any bargaining strength the Chevron had with the Administration.” Dufault’s actions were an “act of contempt for the majority of staff and any principle of democracy. . . and for which the Chevron staff was more than justified in punishing Dufault, following the due process it accorded him” (emphasis is theirs). Shortly after this inci-

Smit said that the name wouldbe released as soon as the Federation lawyer had “drawn up the papers” and that until the administration had taken over the job of collection and refunds, the Federation would supply the Chevron with enough money to produce a newspaper. The other major area of dispute, has been the presence of a typesetter owned by Larry Hannant, in the Chevron offices.

The CUP commissioners. Dauphinee from the London Free Press was chosen by the CUP consulting committee after the chevron’s choice of ex-chevric Henry Hess was declared biased and their second choice Scott Disher couldn’t be contacted for 5 days; Brian Bedford from the Ontarion at Guelph selected by the CUP executive, and Chris Vander Doelen from Ryerson’s Eyeopener as selected by the president of the Ontario region of CUP.

presented its majority report to council in February 1978, recommending that the Chevron remain part of the Federation. However, as far back as October 1977 acting Fed President Eric Higgs had, according to the Chevron documents, tried to “spring a Chevron Referendum.” The chevron passed a motion in support of separation at a January staff meeting. They established a staff committee who were in the process of negotiating separation with the administration. Despite the vote for separation, it remained a contentious issue inside staff. In February, Docherty gave notice of motion that he wanted the position on separation to be reversed. After this, staffer, Chris Dufault started circulating a petition calling for a referendum on separation. At a March 17 staff meeting, a motion was discussed to take no action against Dufault for what has been termed, “undermining staff This negative position.” motion tied, 11-11 after about four hours of debate. The 11 people who had voted in favour of the motion, that is, to take no punitive action against Dufault, left the meeting. The remaining 11, all of whom had voted against the motion, reversed the decision and suspended Dufault’s voting rights for six months. This is considered an example of “Democracy by Attrition” by Federation witnesses. The referendum was held Winter ‘77 and Spring ‘78 and received an 87-per-cent ratification. In written submissions,

dent, a letter headed “Staffers for Dufault” appeared in feedback saying: “We the undersigned Chevron staff members do not recognize the suspension of Chris Dufault’s voting rights. ” It was signed by 24 staff members. Neil Docherty replied in a lettitor, calling the action “splittist and unprincipled.” He suggested bringing it up at a staff meeting, “if you are so enraged.” He also cross-examined Federation witnesses on this point asking why they didn’t take the issue up with staff. The most common reply was, “I had given up on the Chevron by then.” On Monday evening, September 4, the Chevron asked the commissioners to arbitrate a dispute between the paper and the Federation concerning the financing of the paper. As of September 1, the Chevron has been separate from the Federation, however, the Federation is still responsible for the collection of Chevron fees. In January, the administration will take over the job of c01letting and refunding Chevp ron money. Editor David Carter said that Smit had failed to release the name Chevron to the staff thus preventing. them from incorporating. He also said that the Chevron wanted to refund its own fees and maintain a bank account with the-collected Chevron funds. Smit maintained that as long as the Federation collected the fees, “we are responsible for the money.” He also said that he would not allow the Chevron to manage refunds.

A student council motion was passed ordering the typesetter out of the office. “Council did not want anyone, especially Mr. Hannant, having the say over students on how equipment was used.” The Federation has stated in written evidence that according to bylaw no. 2, the Board of Publications has the power “to recommend agreements and contracts,” between the newspaper and, for example, Dumont Press Graphix, who used to typeset and paste up the paper. The Chevron maintains that the motion is a direct contravention of the CUP statement of principles, specifically those stating that the Canadian student press should be “free from pressure by student governments, university authorities or any other external agencies . . .” Regardless of how each side has handled their case, to quote Larry Hannant, “The present matter is. of far-reaching significance for the student press and the student movement in Canada.” Commission chairperson Brian Bedford, aware that CUP does not have the power to enforce any recommendations the commission makes, suggested that after the report was sent to CUP Ottawa, that the commissioners return for one day to the Campus Centre and publicly present it. They would be open for questions from the student body regarding the recommendations and why they were made.

News After viewing a filmed interview with Allende (completed shortly .before his assassination by military terrorists) members of the KW Chilean Association and the KW Chilean Support Group held a joint business meeting. It was decided that the position of j&int chairperson should be replaced by a three person steering committee, in order to accommodate the growing workload of the two groups.

Comment Determ-inism The German philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) writes: “The mind can not look at anything and the senses can not think.” Applying this to experiential science means that the senses perceive the contingent of experiential data and the transcendental mind gives meaning to the data by hypothesizing. The basic, questions arise

Thursday

and religious

if a theoretical hypothesis validated by data is true or unique. Rational thinking provides a negative answer to both questions. Firstly, there are no rules for the formulation of basic, hypothetical propositions as logic provides only rules to reason with propositions, which are consequently extrarational. However, logic teaches that one can arrive

CYCLE6 SPORTSLTD.

/

at one answer only if one reasons from the general to the particular and if the argument is valid. The experiential valida-. tion of an hypothesis always involves the infinite modes of reasoning from the partitular data to the general hypothesis. Consequently an experiential validation of an hypothesis does not substantiate that the hypothesis is unique or even approximately true. Thus in the natural sciences for example, one can basically conclude only, that an experimentally validated, mathematical hypothesis is one of infinitely many. Using in addition the in duct ive method of one may generalizations, that the also infer hvpothesis describes under certain conditions the behaviour of matter as a con-

sistent reaction to the environment. If the being of man is investigated, asfor example in the social sciences or in psychology, the generalization inferred for the behaviour of matter is not valid since man’s being consists of body, soul and

spirit, i.e. of a materialand of an immaterial or transcendental part, Man is not a machine, which is inanimate and made from matter only; man is created in the image of Sod as a rational, autonomous being possessing a free will and an independent mind which render the actions of one man different at different times and different from other men. , Modern ideologies of behaviourism and determinism are based on the hypothesis that the mind of

in conflict

man operates like a machine functions, and that the action of man is nothing but a material-like reaction to the environment. Man’s thinking is considered to be merely a reflex. Consequently, both ideologies re-ject the concepts of the mind and of the free will of man. A similar, passive view of man was held in antiquity, when men considered themselves as beings dependent on the will of the gods. It appears that modern behaviourists and determinists have exchanged the gods for the environment. As only the mind gives meaning to experiential data, it is possible for man to hypothesize that man=

machine

This hypothesis is only one of infinitely many, but involves in this case the irrational proposition that man can reject the concepts of the mind and of the free will without the existence of a mind and a free will. Man is what he thinks he is, but Gan he arbitrarily choose to hypothesise that he is a machine, which is neither autonomous nor capable of transcendental thought? How can man hypothesise he has no free will unless he has the freedom of thought? Modern determinists have already suggested to put man into institutions, so

he can be firmly controlled by the environment. I want to emphasize that this suggestion is based on the hypothesis that man has no free will and not on the hypothesis that the free will of man has to be curtailed. If men including the determinists have no free will, then how can it be explained’, within the framework of their reductionist theory, that the determinists have the will to control other men? It appears that the determinists themselves can not live by their irrational hypothesis. Another question is, if the thoughts of the determinists are merely reflexes, how can the environment stimulate the idea that man ought to be controlled by a special environment, directly in man? If the environment already controls man completely, as the determinists hold, where do these reflexes come from? Is it that the environment has a free will? It appears that the hypothesis man =machine is not only irrational, but also gives absolute power over man to the determinists. The hypothesis not only creates a nightmare in the thinking of man, it may also put man, created as an autonomous being by God, into controlled camps, where he will wither and die. Dr. J. Schroeder

Rentinga7V is just another hassle. The school term has enough hassles without bringing one on yourself. And if you’re like some people, you figure that renting a TV is a hassle you’d be better off avoiding. Marv has changed all that. His primary interest is that you enioy trouble-free viewing all term long. And he’s proven that he can do it. For the past five years, Marv has been renting TVs to more and more

students on and around campus. His approach is simple: affordable student rates, no service or installation charges, a variety of sets to choose from (co/or or black & white) and above all, personal service. It a// adds up to no hassle at all. Call Marv or Doug at 884-8380 and save your strength for the hassles you can’t avoid.

Their repertoire varies from feminist music to country and western -to folk.

‘Foul Play is ‘affa ble ’ widelyspaced’ -

Current trends in film have marked the passing of disaster flicks and schlock as a new style becomes evident.

This kind of formula production now turns towards a new breed of ‘nice’ films - romantic comedies such as “Heaven Can Wait” and Neil Simon’s “The Goodbye Girl”.

Goldie Hawn does not have a good track record, but in “Foul Play” she surfaces as a much better comedienne and, surprisingly, a good actress, despite the limitations of another dumb blonde role. Chevy Chase is also good, if somewhat dull.

Goldie Hawn plays Gloria Mundy, a divorced librarian who accidentally becomes involved in an assassination attempt.

One must give credit for the attempt - not entirely wasted - to make what might have been stock scenes more interesting. The addition of new twists made potentially standard sequences such as car chase, escape and fight scenes fresh and involving.

Battlestar Ga,ltictica an action-adventure flick There are many elements in “Battl,estar: Galactica” that make it a very succesful and enjoyable film. The movie is full of exciting, fast-paced action and human drama, with an occasional sprinkling of light humour to relieve the tension. It concerns the fate of twelve human colonies in space, struggling to survive in a conflict with the Cylons, an android race who find coexistence with humans unbearable. As the story opens, it seems that the two opposing sides have finally sued for peace, but the humans are betrayed by one of their own kind. In a surprise attack, the twelve colonies are almost entirely wiped out, and the survivors must begin a search for the mythical thirteenth colony, Earth, in order to escape the Cylons. The special effects in “Battlestar: Galactica” are of the same calibre as those in “Star Wars”, and are supervised by the same individual, John Dykstra. The bridge of the battle-

Bruce Springsteen Darkness on the Edge of Town The world is divided into two groups: those who remember Bruce Springsteen, and those who have never heard of him. The former may have got hooked on his first album, which immediately produced critical comparisons with Bob Dylan, or his second, a jazztinged East Coast R&B urbanization with distinc_t moments of genius, but it’s more likely that they became acquainted with Springsteen through his certified masterpiece, that opus of steel and fire called “Born To Run” - whose title track was a hit single in the U.S. in fall of’1975. Legal wranglings and injunctions resulting from a falling-out with his previously devoted manager, Mike Appel, forced him to delay recording a followup until last March - almost three years, in a business where the artist’s livelihood depends on the whims of a capricious public - while the hopes of the faithful rose to an almost unbearable pitch. The other group doesn’t know any of this, and as a consequence has missed the power and empathy that no other performer of the ‘70’s has been able to deliver. The wonder of Springsteen lies in his ability to meld the music and lyrics into a unit that reaches straight for your soul. Nevertheless, as is usually the case, the two groups are going to view this album differently, which makes this review very hard to write. Comparisons with BTR are immediate. The first thing one notices is the sound. This record was also co-produced by Springsteen and Jon Landau, the “Rolling Stone” former editor and unfortunate author of the oft-misused quote “I have seen the future of rock’n’roll, and his name is Bruce Springsteen.” But the removal of Appel also removed the fuzzy “wall-ofsound” mix that was used on the earlier discs: the E Street Band can finally be heard as the individuals they are. The album thus retains many of the qualities that make Springsteen one of the best live performers around. Weinberg’s drums and Federici’s organ are sheer delights; sadly, Clarence Clemmons’ brilliant saxophony is present only in tantalizing, small quantities. The dogged optimism of BTR seems to have been replaced by a sense of fatigue and defeat fostered by such grim songs as the title track, “Factory”, and “Racing in the Street”. It is left to the more perceptive to detect the lift underlying tunes like “Badlands”, “Something in the Night”, and “The Promised Land”. The new words are not as heavily redolent with eargasms as, say, the earlier “Jungleland” or “Backstreets”, but this could be because Springsteen’s focus has shifted from the streets of New York City to the junkyard-infested small towns and desolate marshes of the New Jersey coastline. Indeed, the whole

%

philosophy of the music seems to have changed: gone are the R&B elements, the quasi-orchestral overdubs of “Jungleland” and “New York City Serenade”. Two of the best songs on the album are first takes. Springsteen is more uninhibited in his vocals; never really suited for singing, the raw richness of his voice on “Adam Raised A Cain” forces one to admit no one could do these songs any better. As an introduction to Springsteen, “Darkness” or “Born To Run” will both serve; both take a little while to sink into your consciousness as you discard first impressions. Prabhakar Ragde

Elvis This

between Buddy Holly and Terry the Tiger from American Graffiti, his songs are riddled with slashing hooks and barbs delivered in a nasal, sneering voice. The music is relentless, sophisticated punk, coming at you from all directions, an aural form of the stripped-down paranoia worthy of the ten years ahead. My Aim is True was raw and unsettling, partly because it was recorded on an eight track console. This Year’s Model raises its sights a little: the enemy is now fashion, finance, and romance on a more cerebral level. There are two instant classics on this album: This Year’s Girl, a contemptuous putdown of beauty contests, and Radio Radio, a scathing denunciation which is making many FM play lists despite its complaints about “the fools and jerks trying to anaesthetize the way that we feel.” The rest of the album holds to a consistently excellent level. The sound has been upgraded somewhat, the sinister organ of Steve Naive expanding to cover Costello’s shoppy riffs, the Thomas brothers continuing their primeval work on drums and bass. But make no mistake: stardom hasn’t affected Costello any. These are refinements, like the concealment of the C&W roots in his work. His newfound fame (and that of Stiff Records) merely places technological tools at his call, and he uses them mercilessly. If you’re getting tired of the gradual slide of the mainstream into the Fleetwood Mat / Peter Frampton / Steve Miller mould, pick up this album. It’ll serve as a barometer to tell you how much spirit you’ve got /left. Prabhakar Ragde

Costello Year’s Model

In case you’ve been on another planet, we’ve got sixteen months left in the Seventies, and a handful of decent musicians are trying .desperately to save the music of this decade. An equally small group has given up and started playing the music of the Eighties. I am referring, of course, to the “New Wave” bands such as Television, Talking Heads, The Clash, The Tom Robinson Band, Ian Drury, Patti Smith, and the self-proclaimed King of it all, Elvis Costello. Costello was a computer programmer until a short while ago, when he formed a band, released two critically-acclaimed singles and then stunned listeners on both sides of the Atlantic with his debut album, My Aim Is True. The quickly released follow-up album, This Year’s Model, appears to be the best album so far released in the musical desert that is 1978. Costello has no friends. Looking like a bizarre cross

Stereo Record Second Edition; Greenfield, Layton and Ivan ISBN \o 14 6.

Before another word is said, it should be pointed out that this is a Classical Stereo Record Guide, and not any other kind, although Scott Joplin and The Beatles did manage to sneak through. Whether their choice of a title indicates any presumptuousness on the authors’ part or not, they do straighten the matter out in the notes on the back cover. As far as classical recordings are concerned, any epithet short of “exhausting” would apply. The authors have supplied a representative sample of nearly every work of music in the catalogues, thus filling nearly 1200 pages of small type* What they have done is this: all the composers represented in the guide are listed alphabetically. Works by that composer are then listed in a somewhat arbitrary, but consistent order: Concerti are first, then symphonies, followed by music, vocal chamber music and finally collections. Under the heading for a given work is listed the catalogue numbers of a selection of recordings of the work. For instance, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony has fourteen competitive versions listed. Each recording is rated with from one to three asterisks or ‘stars’. A tentative or ‘guarded’ rating is placed in parentheses. A performance that the editors feel is particularly worthwhile receives a ‘rosette’, a flower-

_.

like symbol next to its rating (of three stars, of course). For the Fifth, a performance on Deutsche Grammophon, Carlos conducted by Kleiber receives one of these -‘flowers’. Below this list of selected recordings is a discussion of how the performances compare, amounting to a series of mini-reviews each ranging in length from a single line to a lengthy paragraph. Here is where the sparks begin to fly. Although the ‘star’ rating system boasts limited motivation and meaningfulness, it is a handy measuring stick to determining what they think of a particular disc. The mini-reviews are, however, far more revealing when one tries to separate genuine insight from personal prejudice (given one’s own admitted prejudices), for, the reader is invited to verify, this is, above all else, a British Stereo Guide! A simple but tedious academic exercise yielded some interesting results: A

list of all the ‘flowered’ recordings (about 130 out of 4,000 reviewed discs) shows, for instance, that the three composers that come out with the most flowers -are, in order, Beethoven, Mozart and Elgar ( !). The conductor receiving the most flowers is Neville Marriner, directorof the London-based Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields. After him, Herbert von Karajan ties with Sir John Barbirolli. Of the next five, only Bernard Haitink, a Dutchman who conducts the London Philharmonic half of his time, is non-British. Of the top eight orchestras, only the Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna Philharmonic are nonBritish, and they tie for last place with the London Philharmonic and the Royal Philharmonic. Fine, you may say, but after all, London is a cultural centre and does boast at least ten first- or secondsymphonic and rate chamber orchestras. Granted both that and the

The final trials for the selection of a Canadian team to attend the World Gymnastics championships next month in France took place last Saturday and Sunday at the PAC. Before a capacity crowd of 2800 enthusiasts, Karen Kelsall regained her supremacy as Canada’s top woman gymnast. Kelsall, 14, from Surrey B.C., delivered one superlative, routine after another and dominated both days of the competition. She finished with 76.25 points, comfortably ahead of second place Elfie Schlegel who dinished with 75.70 points. Third place went to Sherry Hawco of the host Cambridge Kips. Carmen Alie of Montreal surprised everyone by slipping in ahead of Commonwealth Games bronze medalist Monica Goermann. The sixth and final spot on the team was won by Ellen Stewart of Toronto. Kelsall, the 1977 National champion, was favoured to win the Commonwealth Games all-round but was surpassed by each of the other Canadian competitors and finished, out of the medals, fourth. Rumours abounded at that time that she was beyond her prime and would soon bow out of competition. Fortunately, she pointed out the absurdity of such a contention in the best possible way. The men’s competition was highlighted by a brilliant performance by Phillip Delesalle on the pommel horse. Considered to be the third best in the world on that apparatus Delesalle was awarded a 9.9 by the judges for his optional routine Sunday. The routine was just more coals on the fire for Delesalle who,swept all five events of both the compulsories and the optionals. The twenty year old native of Victoria finished 2.95 points ahead of second palce Warren Long on Montreal. Je’an Choquette, P ierre Carriere, Pierre Clavel, also from Montreal, Nigel Rothwell of Windsor and Owen Walstrom of Victoria made up the rest of the men’s selections.
