isolationism. Engineering stays Engineering; Math stays Math. Streams stick together but rarely interact with other students. One stream never meets over 3,000 students on the other stream and meets the regular students sporadically. We tend to think co-op. Our student union is the only one with a mailout for referenda and elections. The Engineering Society (either one) is a much more powerful campus organization than the student union. It was this society’s mistrust of the ability of the Federation that lead to UW being the sole University with refundable fees, not only for the student government, but for the radio station and the student newspaper as well. Further to this, the University is subdivided into an assortment of church colleges (symbolically and physically

removed from UW by a creek), and specialized departments, i.e., Optometry and Architecture. Church college students mix courses freely with the University but their identity remains with the college. Optometry and Architecture students don’t even know where the University proper is. Strangely enough for a city as (comparatively) small as Waterloo, we’ aren’t even the only University in town! Hundreds of students take courses at both UW and Wilfrid Laurier University, which is just down the street from us, It’s no wonder UW is labled the ‘suitcaseuniversity’. There are fewer ties to bind. Student events many times are planned for Thursdays before the University packs up for the weekend. ~ UW’s identity is rooted in a segregated co-op mentality. It makes us the largest University in Canada for the summer

months. Students wishing to pursue their studies during the summer are able to. It’ leads to a high quality of education, most notably in Math, Engineering, and Optometry. And our Campus Centre ’ remains open every day and night while other student centres close their doors. Our identity somewhat hinders participation in student organizations but the organizations continue to survive and thrive. The student union, radio station, newspaper, the annual theatre farce FASS, international student groups, and the various clubs all add an extra dimension to the University. I It’s easy to find the faults inherent in a system. The nature of our University somewhat divides us. but it also gives us tougher skins. There are problems at UW but it is always realistic to delineate that which is good. Randy Barkman

Editorial, The University of Waterloo has a strange type of identity. It lacks a semblance of unity. Just as hockey is to Canada, basketball is the only thing that can bring people together at UW. Because we are a relatively new University, we lack tradition. UW started as an Engineering university and is vaguely remembered as having a radical past, mostly during the late 1960’s-that is our history. But, unlike other Universities, UW lacks the snobbery of ‘name’ professors, fraternities and _sororities and lacks emphasis on alumni and Homecomings, Mostly for the good. But what really sets us apart is the co-operative structure of the University, Over half of UW students are on a co-op program. We even have co-op English! The co-op program leads to

New i-ights given to studentsA new piece of legislation in Ontario promises to make the lives of students living away from home a little easier. The Residential Tenancies Act, which comes into effect on October 1, 1979, replaces both the controversial and much abused Landlord Tenant Act, and the often ineffectual Rent Review Act. The new Act is significant on three counts. First, it should speed up the of disputes processing between landlords and their tenants. The Residential Tenancies Act .will use a tribunal instead of a court appearance before a magistrate to reach its


decisions. The tribunal will be made up of lawyers, retired judges and notaries public. The new provincial legislation will also be of importance to the one-third of off-campus students who are boarders and who were not covered under the old Landlord Tenant Act. Under the legislation, a copy of the Act must be posted in a common area of the residence. Thirdly, the Residential Tenancy Act will enable those students living in residence to particiapate -through their residence associationsin formulating changes to the budget of the particular residence.

W-PIRG told to\ vacate their office It looks like the space crisis on campus is going to The Waterloo Interest claim another victim. Research Group (WPIRG) is being told to vacate its space in the Physics building and so far no other space is being found for them. The request stems from a.decision to move a part of Kinesiology into space in the Science buildings, as part of efforts to reduce the amount of off campus space which the university rents on Philip Street. In order to accommodate Kinesiology, the Dean of Science, R. N. Farvolden has decided that he needs the 490 sq. ft. WPIRG is occupying in Physics 226. Science expects to use the space for grad student offices. WPIRG is a student funded organization which investigates issues of social importance. In past years they have released reports on nuclear power, mercury poisoning in the English-Wabigoon rivers, and on other environmental issues. Physical Planning boss Ernie Lappin has been trying to find space for WPIRG elsewhere on campus but with no luck. Lappin wrote the Campus Centre Board asking whether space was available there, asking specifically about space in the ‘old Chevron’ offices. The CCB discussed that proposal and as well discussed putting WPIRG in the World Room in the Campus Centre. It was decided however that both areas are fully utilized now. The ‘old Chevron’ space is currently occupied by Imprint, CKMS, and the Federation of Students Board of Communications. As well, Imprint allows some other campus organizations (such as the Ret Students Association) to use some of its space to publish newspapers. The Room-i-s used by _--- World international students organizations. This move continues a trend which seems to be developing in the Science faculty. A few years ago WPIRG (then OPIRG) was forced from larger offices in the Chem-Biology link to their current office. Expandi-ng Science requirements forced the move of the Science society from a large office in the link to smaller quarters last fall. WPIRG has received a request from the administration to move by September 1 but Zappin says that it is now unlikely that they will have to move before Christmas. Frank Morisonx

of Physical Planning Ernie Lappin. Vice-President Financial Operations Bruce Gellatly has done a financial plan for the payment of the buildings based on diverting rental fees, and estimates it will be paid for within 25 years. Under this plan the University would infuse approximately $500,000 into the project and borrow the remainder. ’ UW currently has $600,006 remaining in its Tenth Anniversary Capital Fund and also is about to start a fund raising drive as soon as it can find a chairman. The Ontario Government has cut off all funding for buildings until 11983 when it will re-assess campus needs for space based on enrollment. Lappin estimates UW’s space needs at 100,000 square feet. The ES building, along with an HKLS bulding had been planned in 1927. The buildings were about to go to tender when the government freeze was imposed. Since that time, building requirements and student enrolment have changed as must the plans for the buildings. Randy Barkman

Construction is moving ahead with the Elora Gorge bridge. Opposition to the bridge started six years ago. UW students might have bought apples from UW’s Pollution Probe to ‘support the fight to retain the natural beauty of the gorge (10 miles west of Waterloo). The bridge’s opponents lost at every turn from the Supreme Court of Canada to the Ontario Cabinet. The bridge will cost $2.5 million to construct and is slated for completion in the spring of 1981.

Citizens oppose dam building A steering committee of the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) is eyeing a large portion of farmland located on the Grand River between West Montrose and Elora. Meanwhile, the Valley Research Foundation is determined to stop the Committee from having a, permanent view. The commit-tee has recommended that acquisition of between 2,868 and 4,366 acres of land begin immediately for the purpose of constructing the Montrose Dam and Reservoir. Of this land, between 1,573 and 2,492 acres are classified as Class I and II agricultural land. .The origin of the assessment can be traced to a Royal Commission Inquirity into the May 1974 flood of the Grand River. Judge Leach, who chaired the Inquiry, recommended that the GRCA “embark immediately upon the construction of the Montrose Reservoir.” He stated that had the reservoir “been in existence in May, it would have substantially decreased the flood damage in Cambridge-Galt.” The steering committee looked at 18 structural and 14 non-structural alternatives as solutions to water management problems. Major concerns were water quality, water supply, and flood control. The alternatives were evaluated for social, economic and environmental impact and for ability to d meet consumptive, non-con-

sumptive, and social demands on land use. Consumptive demands are agricultural and residential; non-consumptive demands include recreation, wetlands, woodlots, sensitive and/or natural areas, and game animals. Preservation of rare species, and amenity values associated with an aesthetically pleasing landscape and/or clean environment, were included as social demands. Only four alternatives survived the primary and secondary screening processes. The first three alternatives included the construction of the West Montrose Dam and Reservoir with dates of completion being 1984, 1996, and 2013. The fourth alternative included channel and sewage treatment improvements. After evaluating these alternatives for negative impacts, the steering committee recommended the Montrose Dam be completed by 1984. Measures to mitigate the negative impact were also recommended. _

-the resulting negative impact is not justified. The Foundation was incorporated two years when it became ago obvious to -certain people that the Montrose Dam constituted a serious threat. Membership of the Foundation is comprised of Pilkington. Township residents, the Group to Preserve River Valleys, and a Stop the Dam committee. Pilkington township will be most affected by the dam. The Group to Preserve River Valleys was a research team qualified to meet the GRCA on its own ground. A water resources engineer, an environmental planner, a general community planner, and several student researchers comprised the research team. Regarding the assessment, Duncan Bury, Foundation co-ordinator, said, “There are several grounds for opposition.” Among numerous criti-

In spite of the depth of research found in the one group is assessment, having no trouble finding ‘faults. The Valley Research Foundation believes the construction of the dam with

cisms, Bury discussed several basic issues in the study, including water supply, water quality, and flood control. He disagrees with the conclusions drawn by the steering

committee. Of greater concern to the Foundation are the negative impacts of the damn, including: the displacement of 40 families, the inundation of the Estonian summer camp, the loss of wildlife habitat, the destruction of river invertebrates, the loss of agricultural land and productivity, and a breakdown of community ties in Pilkington Township because of a physical division. ’ In September, the GRCA will review the assessment and decide whether to officially accept it. The next step would be to submit the assessment to the province for an Environmental Assessment hearing. At that time, the Valley Research Foundation will express their concerns to the ministry. Duncan Bury said he doubts that the hearing will take place before the end of 1980. He said two studies having a bearing on the issues will not be completed before then. These studiessare the Waterloo Region’s artici-cial recharge study and a study on the Grand River watershed called the Grand River Implementation Study. ,’ ‘Whenever the hearing is * held, there can be no doubt that reams of GRCA evidence will be con’ fronted with reams of research compiled by the Valley Research Foundation. It just shows that the cure depends on the doctor. ’ Karen Bailey

News University Wilfrid Laurier and Waterloo Universities will have a new bus service for .a six week trial period this fall. The bus shuttle will run between the two Universities and also make stops at the Bauer Warehouse (for students from the Sunnydale area) and the UW villages. Director of Administration Services Bill Deeks is moving ahead with his plan to serve the “more than 2,500 students” per week who attend classes at their neighboring University. Deeks says the project is a result from pressure from the provincial government for the two Universities to “coordinate and complement each other’s classrooms rather than to compete.” The bus will begin operations on September 10. The trial period will be over on October 19. The route is as follows: From the Bauer Warehouse at UW’s north campus, the bus will run west on Columbia then circle back past Village I and II making two stops. It will . then follow the ring road stopping at Needles Hall, then on to WLU’s Library. The bus will then double back to the Bauer Warehouse by-passing the Villages except in the evenings. One full circle will take 30 minutes.

The busses will run from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from 7:3O AM to 1:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The evening service will run from 6:00 to l&45 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Fares will exact change

Universities are committed to co-operate with transit authorities with respect to the results ofthe trial period. The City of Waterloo, which uses the Kitchener Transit system, has the exclusive right to furnish local public transportation within the city, according to a written agreement between the two. It is, however, unclear whether this is legally valid as the City of Waterloo has not passed any by-law to enforce it.

be misleading as his bus rental costs are unusually low and most likely will not remain so. Kitchener Transit quoted a $28/hr figure for use of their buses, while United Trails was quoted at $lO/hr. This figure includes gas and driver. United Trails was just awarded the current year’s

contract to supply UW with buses. Deeks says the two occurrences are unrelated. The Federation of Students operated a shuttle bus service between the Bauer Warehouse and the campus in the winter of 1978. The cost of the bus was $15/hr and the cost per trip was 15

cents. The Federation lost $1,600 over a 6 week period. The trial shuttle service is a joint project between UW and WLU. Operating costs are set at a maximum of $3,500 less ticket sales income. A deficit would be shared between the Universities. Randy Barkman

Survey concludes bus ,system should exist A report prepared by 3 engineering students last winter term concluded that the Federation of Students could serve students by providing an alternate bus system for areas not served well by city transit. FederMark ation President McGuire, however, says the Federation is staying out of the bus business. The report, submitted to the Federation, analyzed various modes of transportation: pedestrian facilities, taxi and car pools, an improved Kitchener Transit service, and the implementation of a University operated bus service. A 3 kilomenter radius of UW was studied. 4,800 students lived in the study areas: Lakeshore Village, Parkdale Plaza, apartments east of Weber St. by University Ave., downtown, Westmount Road area, Westmount and University, Erb street, east of Westmount and the Lester street area. Improvement of pathways proved costly, and, in some areas, restricted access was a problem. Scheduling problems with other students restricted the use of taxi pools. Taxis would only be economical with an average of three people riding to school. 1,700 students within the study areas used a car to get to campus. Private car pools would be practical in cost, but besides the scheduling difficulties, there were problems concerning liability. The Insurance Act (Ontario) exempts the insurer from liability for carrying passengers for compensation or hire. The study concluded that the problem with the existing bus service for students was that it was “designed to span radially from the central business disfrict ” and was not centred around the University. The results are transfers and a lack of direct routes. The study recommended of two proposed one changes in the existing bus routes for increased student service: that suggested The.y other Lakeshore every number 9 bus be rerouted through UW during the students peak periods

come and leave .------- campusfrom 8-10 -a.m. and from 3:30-5:30 p.m. This route change would have the ‘advantage of serving Lakeshore and Parkdale area students as well as serving the existing demand. It was estimated that 70 extra students would use the service. Transfers would no longer be needed. The other proposed route proved less advantageous. The route 8 bus was to extend west of Westmount on Erb Streelt and circle around to University Avenue. An 18% decrease in regular service was projected as riders south of Erb on Westmount would use the service less. The study resolved that the most feasible solution was a private bus system. It would include all studied areas except the Lester, and the University/Westmount zones which are within easy walking distance. The routes would cover only those areas improperly served by public transit. Operation would be similar to the Western Wheels system at Western University in London, Ontario. At Western, the student government operates student bus routes throughout London with the co-operation of the local transit system. It has been in operation since 1971; its subsidy for 197879 was $4,500. Fares in the UW study are set for break-even; 600: maximum. Buses would be leased and would run six hours per day. Stops would be minimized and the buses scheduled to correspond with classes. Besides providing students with cheap, efficient and convenient service, it would allow students to rent housing in areas poorly serviced by city transit. The disadvantages woul’d be probable opposition from the City of Waterloo and the possibility of rising fares since the system would be ‘-dependent solely upon actual ridership. A pilot study is recommended. The Federation would subsidize a trial period at $90 per day. The system would become financially self-sustaining

later, according to the study. The Federation of Students i,s wary of starting a large-scale system as proposed and has met with transit authorities to talk of their / concerns. McGuire said transit officals felt the engineer’s study did not take advantage of the resources city transit could supply. One official suggested that improved walkways was a more advantageous route to follow. He said the report’s cost estimates were too high. Kitchener Transit is reviewing changes in the transit system and will implement them in the fall of 1980. Last year the main line bus route serving the University had its service cut as the city re-routed every second bus to the new Conestoga Mall, which is north of Weber, on’ King St. Bus fares have risen from 354: to 50c in the last two years. McGuire said that the Federation was interested in a trial bus service to the Lakeshore area that could have started next winter term. Since then, however, the UW administration has proposed its own bus routes to be run close to “Village III”. (See article above). The Federation has not budgeted for a bus study in the current year and believes that a study would require a . large subsidy. A bus system started at the University of Guelph last byear lost the Guelph Student Union $20,000. Losses were scheduled at a maximum of $10,000. Guelph’s system included only late night service between, 11:30 and 1:30. Guelph transit did not run during these hours. The union owned three buses and operated three routes throughout the city. Unlike Western’s example, city transit was not involved in the project. Guelph’s student union has recently prepared ,a study for the Ontario government on its bus system. They are seeking financial support from the government, arguing that their bus routes provide a service to U of G students. Randy Barkman

After the meeting, Vice President Brigid Rowe who had wanted the summer elections declared herself acting president and called for elections. At the meeting, member Sohal and another ex told the twenty people attending that this was an invalid election. The meeting went on and Rowe was elected president. Before the elections, however, the Federation of Students ceased recognition of the ISA due to a falsified members’hip list and the planned overspending of the ISA budget.

Plan costs skyrocket

You might have noticed on your fee schedule that your are paying a lot more for your University supplementary health insurance plan. Students council accepted a tripling of the cost with some reductions ‘in service while you were gone. The insurer, Confederation Life, said that within the first seven months of the plan they incurred claims totaling $189,037, while premiums came only to, $59,916. The vision benefit allowing $40 off on a pair of glasses every two years was lessened by making it a four year period for the reduction. The charge was made in the hopes of reducing premium increases.

Jennifer Hilt on was elected President of. Engineering Society A by a convincing margin last July. This marks the first time that a woman has been elected President of, the predominantly male society. Hilton is in 3A chemical engineering which makes her the first chemical engineer to be elected president since the early sixties. The margin of her victory surprised all observers. Bill Thomson polled only 30% of the vote compared to Hilton’s 58%. Pete Savich trailed with 12% of the voters supporting him.

lESTED The Denon model DP-2500 is an outstanding machine in all respects. Its basic performance challenges the limits of our measurements and sets new Standards for what we can expect from a “simple record nlaver”. We found that at 33 r.o.m. it took less than one third oi a-revolution for the strobe’pattern to stabilize and less than half a revolution for 45 r.p.m. Stopping was achieved in little over h-alfa revolution. The speed cont<ol was so good that we were surprised to find that the pitch did not . change even when we cleaned the surfaces of the disc with the Watts Manual Parastat when the system was playing. The DP2500 seems immune to vibration and a wild foot stomping party will not fa7P it

In the measurements which we made on the Onkyo TX-4500 we found that the specifications were consistently exceeded. The TX-4500 is an excellent value. Its FM tuner and amplifier are well above the norm for most receivers on the market in its price range, and this unit may indeed rival many separates on the market at much higher prices. Quartz Lock takes all of the uncertainty out of tuning and should be a boon to apartment dwellers and those who do not have an external antenna. All of the essential features one would look for are in the-TX-4500, plus a good many exciting extras. It is a receiver that we could live with quite happily, it is a receiver that, frankly, caused our technical editors many joyful hours of testing, and it is a receiver we would whbleheartedly recommd’nd without a moment’s hesitation. Hats off to Onkyo on this product. ,

The P.S. Ross report has the goal of defusing student and public opposition to funding cutbacks by moving the abhorent responsibility for fees away from the government, by “privatizing” education, and by fixing fees at <a percentage of government subsidy. But is has an equally important dual purpose. As Charles Hanly points out in his book, “Who Pays” on University financing, the Universities here could never develop like in the U.S.A., where there are both very prestigious, very expensive Universities, and unknown state colleges. The reason is that Universities cannotset their own fees without penalty. As a result, no Ontario University can be either that much better or worse than the others. Fee autonomy as expressed in the P.S. Ross report was endorsed by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) this summer. UW president Burt Matthews, who made the motion, extended it by recommending that any excess tuition over a “formula” amount not be eligible for - financial assistance under OSAP. Thus, if COU and P.S. Ross have their way, not only will Universities like U of T be able to charge MIT-like fees, but student aid will not be available to cover the excess. The government sees the development of elitist, low enrolment high cost institutions as essential for its “industrial strategy”. These Universities will not be more autonomous from the government, but will be in fact more dependent on it. Regardless of what tuition is charged, industrial research cannot be funded on student fees alone. , The Federal, government has

already made a heavy commitment to goal-oriented research at universities. .-Two multi-million dollar centres will be built at UW in the next few years. A Centre for Process development will move newlydeveloped methods from the chemical engineering labs here to full scale plant operation. And Industrial Research Innovation Centre will combine student and faculty expertise with industrial objectives. The government will have to invest billions of dollars over the next few years to reach their goal of more than doubling R&D expenditures, as a percentage of the Gross National Product. Even if that goal proves unrealistic, a large fraction of whatever money is spent will go to the Universities-to some of the Universities. Co-op programs will become more common as the direction of the Universties shifts from education to industry. The University of Ottawa, for instance, is starting a pilot co-op program this year. Even Wilfrid Laurier considered it for their English students. Instead of University being aimed at educating the individual, the individual will be aimed at fitting a slot in the industrial machine. And if Bette Stephenson has her way, everything will be computerized, from the multiple-choice admission exams to job placement at graduation. On the surface, the temple of technology that will be the UW of the 90s will differ greatly from the ’ religious seminary at Waterloo Lutheran half a century earlier. But there will be one similarity: the students will still be studying on their knees. ’ Ciaran O’Donnell

in Vietnam

Let us look at some of the ‘pressures’ inside Vietnam. Three important factors are floods, starvation and the ever-present effects of the 30 years of colonial war which ended in 1975. According to the Red Cross, floods in September 1978 from the highest rainfall in recent history affected 4 million people in the Mekong delta and the Central provinces. Destruction included cattle, pigs, ‘poultry, classrooms, clinics, factories and houses plus winter crops (up to l/5 the national production). Earlier in the year bug infestation and fungus affected the crops and a lack of fertilizer and spare parts for spray machines aggravated the situation. Since 1975 Vietnam has experienced severe food shortages. Up to 1.6 million tons were needed in 1977-78. It is the urban areas which are most affected by these shortages, Rationing is in place to prevent starvation, and to distribute available food equally. There are other problems in the big cities with the distribution of food, one of which is the persistance of the black market in rice. The government has reduced urban unemployment but the food situation became so critical in late 1978 that the government threatened to reduce rations to the unemployed. For those who agreed to work in the rural areas there are additional rations. People are desperately needed in the agricultural sector. The population suffered terribly during the war. One million, seven hundred thousand people were killed and two million were injured. The war created 10

million internal refugees in south Vietnamalmost 50% of the population. There is a swollen population in the citie_s due to the continuousAmerican bombing in the countryside. There are also those people whose jobs were tied up in the artificial war economy before 1975 and the black market. These people are hard to rehabilitate. The’re left innumerable physical scars. Villages were ruined and dykes damaged, often seriously. Today, ‘the soils are poisoned’. Defoliants used by the US forces in the rice paddies, forests and jungles are proving to be an environmental time bomb. Reports from Vietnam carried in several magazines speak of unusually high incidents miscarriage and birth of liver cancer, defects. Four million tons of bombs were dropped during the war. Many are still in the fields - undetonated. People who work in the fields are often acting unknowlingly as minesweepers. Many people to not wish to move to the New Economic Zones since many of these zones are in the defoliated and bomb riddled areas. Conditions in the zones are said to be primitive, especially compared to urban life, and few ‘make good’. There are few reports on life in the new economic zones. The conditions are not well documented. The stories of the boat people pertain to the negative aspects of the zones. But few have actually gone there. What, comments there are suggest also that some people have died. The farming life is arduous. Provisions promised to settlers don’t always arrive. And the proximity of the zones to Cambodia (and to the fighting there) made many fearful. Even in the cities, as the process of reconstruction evolves, it becomes clear that the war had its toll on the older generation of skilled people. There are shortages of good managers in both the north and south of the country.

Charges that the exodus of refugees-is racially based deserve to be examined in light of the situation of Chinese minorities in all of S-E Asia. This is a complex. question and much has been written about this. The least that can be said is that tensions between ethnic groups in Vietnam are not new and have existed there, as well as in neighbouring countries for a long time. The example of Malaysia is important. This country is the location of many refugees from Vietnam. It has its own (history of) tensions between minority groups. Internal politics and economic development in Malaysia are determined by the policies of the government toward the minority groups. These tensions are dealt with primarily by guarantees of rights for the Malay people, the largest minority in Malaysia (Malays comprise 44%, Chinese 36% and Tamils 10%). Even today, Malaysian authorities fear that an influx of refugees will affect the delicate balance which has been created there.

66Boat People” background Of all the international news items carried in the media this summer none aroused as much controversy or sympathetic public response than the plight of the boat people. The Canadian Government drastically revised its refugee quota in order to accommodate up to 50,000 refugees over three years on a public-private sponsorship agreement. The Government has gone further. At the Geneva Conference of the United Nations ‘High Committee for Refugees in July, External Affairs Minister, Flora MacDonald, called for solutions to the problem of the refugees ‘at source’. She charged Vietnam with gross violations of human rights, claiming that there is a deliberate Vietnamese policy to rid the country of certain elements of its population. Canadians deserve to know a good deal more about the internal -conditions in Vietnam before accepting our Government’s charges as valid. Yet the present level of documentation and public information on Vietnam is low. This raises suspicion. For example, press coverage has been notably poor on the question of Vietnam’s internal situation and policies. Is there a conspiracy of silence? What follows is a compilation of data which might assist in the public debate about the causes behind the refugee phenomena. Perhaps the broadest statement on the ‘causes’ of the refugee flow came from Helen Steves, a Quaker, writing in the Manchester Guardian (July 8/79): ‘Intolerable economic, social, psychological and racial pressures are causing the mass exodus.’ ‘Most of the boat people, however, do not give directly political reasons for fleeing, and could be classed as economic refugees.’


Violence occured in Malaysia in the late ’60s. Indonesia has also experienced severe violence. The racial composition of the S-E Asian countries, the history of tensions, and the inter-ethnic arrangements of various coun :ries are important to know. To some extent we have to use this information to better understand the perceptions by, and of, the Chinese minorities in the region. The racial factor is one among several in the present refugee situation and is a factor in the response of various Governments to the boat people on their doorsteps. (See the Manchester Guardiao, July l/79).

The question of reparation payments by the United States and international aid to Vietnam since 1975 in no small way, have influenced the conditions within the country. It should be noted that in 1973 President Nixon, pledged post-war assistance of $3.25 billion. This was for food and agriculture, building and general construction, clothing and energy, ’ port rebuilding and water transportation, roads and railroads, industrial commodities and engineering studies. But none of this assistance has been forthcoming. (See Los Angeles Times, Aug. 16/76.) There is currently a US embargo on trade, aid, loans and credit to Vietnam, and the US has used its influence to hold back further World Bank loans (Far Eastern Economic Review, July 6/79). This is said by

The U. S. and Post-Liberation Vietnam Apart from the internal problems which have given rise to the boat people, the external factors should also be considered.

some such as Daniel Berrigan,,former antiwar activist, to have forced Vietnam to seek massive aid from the USSR. Ending the embargoes would help alleviate tensions and pressures that have contributed to the human rights violations that do exist. The aid, by way of bulldozers, trucks and graders with bomb screens are badly needed to deal with the 150,000 to 300,000 tons of undetonated bombs, mines and grenades left in the ground by the Americans. Vietnam feels that the US boycott is contributing to the exodus of refugees. Many S-E As ian nations fee 1the same way, that the US is not doing enough to help Vietnam or to help the refugees. Malaysia feels that the ‘boat people’ are ‘a hang over. from the US involvement in Vietnam’. The US has gone so far as to refuse food aid to Vietnam even though requests for food have come from several sources. These include the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), American national church groups and even US Senators including the late Hubert Humphrey who viewed the situation in Vietnam in 1977. Bilateral aid to Vietnam has so far been small considering the difficult reconstruction tasks. But the pressure is on to cut existing international aid. Noncommunist countries and banks have promised $1.7 billion (US) to Vietnam for its current five year development plan. These commitments are now under US pressure to be reviewed. Sweden and West Germany have continued aid to Vietnam. Malaysia has cut off all aid, as have Denmark and Belgium. However, the USSR has promised $2.5 billion (US) in aid, including 250,000 tons of wheat and maize. (See Far Eastern

Aid to Vietnam

While we can point with just criticism to the U.S., we must not fail to look at Canada’s record and our relationship with Vietnam. Canadians, through nongovernment organizations (NGQ) have been assisting the Vietnamese people. These include the Mennonite Central Committee, Canadian Friends Service Committee (Quakers), the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, CUSO/SUCO, Unitarian Service Committee and the Committee to Aid the Vietnam Flood Victims (a Quebec based coalition). The total NGO aid has amounted to approximately two million dollars since 1975. A trickle of government aid to Vietnam came through CIDA (-Canadian International Development Agency) by way of matching grants to the NGOs. This money, approximately three-quarters of a million dollars, came between 1975 and 1977 but was stopped pending a ‘review of Canadian policy to Vietnam’ by‘ External Affairs. It appears as if CIDA was quite willing to support any NGO project in Vietnam from 1974-76. In 1977, CIDA limited aid to material shipments whereby materials had to be purchased outside Vietnam. No transfer of funds was allowed. In 1978, CIDA simply put a stop to all assistance to NGO projects in Vietnam. In addition, Canada has given $7.55 million in bilateral aid to Vietnam from 1975 up to late 1977 as well as bilateral food aid. All this stopped in 1978. In April, 1979, then Secretary of External Affairs, Don Jamieson wrote: ‘In view of the recent Vietnavmese aggression in Cambodia, I have decided that consideration to Vietnam should be

Canada would probably defend its decision to cut off aid to Vietnam by arguing “that until human rights are respected no aid is deserved.” Local MP, John Reimer has claimed that genocide is practised by Vietnam in a July 12/79 letter to Ron Atkey, Immigration Minister. However these charges need to be/examined. According to the UN High Commission for Refugees, to be recognized a bona fide refugee one must be outside one’s own country and unable to return due to fear or persecution. The following question merits consideration:‘With20 yearsof war in Vietnam and $150 billion spent by the US, what is cruelty, oppression, violence, genocide?’ It is important to know about the many refugees to Canada from South Vietnam before 1975 and to know that they fled the repressions (well documented) carried out by the Thieu regime. Amnesty International Reports for 1977 and 1978 do not list a single verified incident of torture in Vietnam. This is also stated by Jerry Tinker, a staff member of Senator Ted Kennedy attched to the US Senate Judiciary Committee, Sub-committee on Refugees (The Real Paper, Boston, July ?/79). Recent charges of torture and imprisonment are coming from one or two sources (notable a Mr. Doan van Toai) who are closely associated with the former Tieu regime. These charges have been countered by several sources, in particular the S-E Aisa Resourse Centre.

Several Canadian groups are very eager to send more aid to Vietnam and to utilize the CIDA ‘matching dollars’. Why has Flora MacDonald advocated cutting-off all aid to Vietnam in chorus with Margaret Thatcher and others? why does Canada not aid Vietnam and put diplomatic pressure on the US to make the reparation payments? Why is the following advice of the UN High Commission for Refugees not observed: ‘International assistance could help redress the devastation caused by the war and successive natural calamities and influence the decisions both of those who might wish to repatriate voluntarily and of those who might otherwise consider leaving for economic reasons’. The Canadian record is poor in another area as well. The organization Canadian Aid to Vietnam Civilians, (of Vancouver) in a July 18/79 press release notes that, in regard to the orderly flow of refugees from Vietnam, Canada has taken few steps to implement the March/79 seven point program worked out by Vietnam and the UN High Commission for Refugees. “Although Canada officially recognizes Vietnam, it has no embassy in Hanoi and has not sent a single Canadian official (until July 13) to Vietnam to screen applicants.” (A government newsletter of July 16 says that 25 visas for family reunification have been issued-after four years of negotiations ’ with Vietnam. But it is clear that a program of active co-operation with the emigration program has not begun. Yet such action would enable people to leave Vietnam

. ..continued Amnesty does not say that there are reeducation camps. They cite reports of 50,000 to 200,000 people still in the camps (while well over 1 million people have spent time in the campus since 1975). Those still under detention include intelligence officers of the former regime and the US and officers of the former Armed Forces. The 1978 Report notes there are also “mercantile capitalists”, people who have worked with the US, and intellectuals in the camps. Vietnam had set a three year limit on re-education, but this has not been fulfilled completely.” Recently, some Buddhist monks were arrested. Some people who have led armed resistance to the Government (so-called ‘Third Force’ and supporters of Thieu) have also been arrested. In 1978, arrests were made in Ho Chi Minh Ville (Choloh District) after disturbances which followed the nationalization of businesses. The extent of the disturbance and the arrests has not been documented. However, this incident is seen by many as key to the exodus of the Vietnamese. On the ‘human rights’ question it is important to come to the point where we can evalfiate charges of violation, a context which, in the case of Vietnam, should include the idea of ‘freedom from the -horrors of war’ and ‘the provision of food, housing, personal security, basic health care and education to a unified Vietnam as basic elements of human rights’. It is important to ask, ‘What is good for the people of Vietnam in the post-war period?’ Charges of ‘holocaust’ inside Vietnam have yet to be documented. Many Canadians see the ‘holocaust’ as the experience endured by the Vietnamese on the high seas. A July 12 private ad in the Globe and Mail claimed ‘The execution chambers are leaky boats and barges. The killers are disease, starvation and drowning.’ This relates to the situation outside Vietnam.

How is it that people find themselves out on the high seas? .


It’s a push-pull situation...where the push is a dispossessed economic class or a sanction by the government. I think you can argue both sides. There’s no question that the boats are arranged by overseas Chinese syndicates. The pull factor is the relatives . living overseas.’ That’s how Jerry Tinker put it. (Quoted in The Real Paper, Boston). Then there are charges of racketeering (Far Eastern Economic Review, Dec. 22/78, Jan 12 and June 15/79). The charges laid by the boat people implicate local level police and customs officials, provincial authorities and even members of the Politburo in Hanoi (though these upper level peple are said to be seldom directly involved). Charges claim that Vietnam is ‘overseeing’ the departure by the boat people where such departures have gone through ‘official’ channels involving ‘quasi-legal organizations’. Most refugees claim to have paid out hundreds of dollars to get aboard boats. They say that part of the money is a departure tax, or a bribe, or simply a fee. It is-their conclusion that Vietnam is making huge profits from this collection procedure. Is Vietnam simply being pragmatic by charging the taxes and coordinating people who can’t wait for exist visas and orderly departure proceedures? Are the charges that Vietnam is ‘profiting from the trade in human cargo’ true ? It is too early to tell exactly if minor officials act alone or as part of a government policy towards the ‘undesirables’. Given the role that the overseas Chinese syndicates play plus the impact of the Chinese policy of viewing the Hoa (Chinese) inside Vietnam as citizens of China (New Statesman, July 20/79) and the mounting pressures inside Vietnam stemming from the effects of the war, excerbated by international attempts to isolate the country, it is hard to condemn the Vietnamese government alone for the high seas tragedy. Clearly, the complexities and the unknowns suggest that ‘reasonable response’ to the refugee situation does not include the premature outright condemnation of Vietnam and the extreme charges of ‘genocide’ or ‘holocaust’.





The Refugees: Who are thev? If racial, economic and political pressures are behind the refugee exodus, it is impcrrtant to know just who is affected. The refugees, primarily Chinese (Hoa) people, are from north and south Vietnam. (20%35% of the refugees are Vietnamese-nonChinese). Between 55% and 75% of the refugees in Hong Kong are from the north. Many of the northern people were mine workers, truck drivers, factory workers, and others’ were teachers, doctors and other skilled people. Refugees from the south include people involved in trade. Among these are merchants and bankers and their families. Several owned their own factories and managed plants of large transnational corporations prior to 1975. Others had a history of involvement with the US military and with the US Agency for International Development (AID). Some, if not many, disagree politically with the new government, many cannot adjust to the present austere living conditions, some are resistors of the draft in Vietnam. Others have been victims directly or indirectly of racial pressure. Many non-complimentary -words have been used to describe the refugees. These are being used by Canadians opposed to recent government increases in refugee quotas (often those opposed to Asian immigration). Sirnilar language is being used by Vietnamese authorities on occasion, by other countries in Southeast Asia and by the press and commentators in the media, such as Gordon Sinclair. It is important when discussing the IndoChinese refugees to be aware of the attitude which “blames the victim’, i.e., ‘they’ are responsible,. heap the criticism on the refugees.’ This is a very pervasive attitude in Canada. We must be aware that there is an unresolved debate about the conditions in Vietnam which motivated the refugees to leave, and about human rights violations. Because of the allegations and denials, we cannot easily make any final conclusions about the charges. We must be aware that there are various and diverse interpretations as to-the causes of the mass exodus. The question is still not answered satisfactorily: why have 750,000 people fled their homes in Vietnam in boats, or why have up to one million fled from the country (including the more than 250,000 harboured ,inside China)?


The host countries see the refugees as ‘destabilizing their’own countries’ and as ‘people forced from Vietnam to destabilize the ASEAN Nations (ASEAN: sAssociation of South East Asian Nations, a trade organization). These countries also see the ,‘illegal immigrants’ as the responsibility of the country of origin, i.e., Vietnam. (Fur East Economic Review, .,July 13/79) The “West’s sympathy” for the refugees is perceived by Malaysia authorities as ‘irresponsible’, saying “The Americans gave the Vietnamese boat people hope. So they come with the expectation of stopping here overnight and going to a new life in the US.” (Far Eastern Economic Review, Dec. 15/78) There is a question as to whether Canada’s acceptance of South East Asian refugees relates to our ties with US policy. Malaysia has put pressure on the US to get space for the refugees and has cited Canada as a possible location (Fur Eastern Review, July 6/79). John Weiler of the Mennonite Central Committee says, -“The public has been misled. It isn’t just a case of an evil communist government in Vietnam forcing people out and making them pay for leaving. That may happen, but many are ‘leaving simply because the economic rug was pulled out when the Vietnam war ended in 1975. The West has done little to help these people reconstruct”. (MacLeans July 18/79) One commentator, John Pilger, writing in the New Statesman (July 20/79) goes all out and charges that the present US and Western policy towards Vietnam is revenge. “Revenge based on the need to punish the Vietnamese for daring to evict the greatest military force in history...the cover is the outrage in the name of the boat people...Their aim is to justify the war ,and give credence to similar adventures.’

Political Implications of the Refugees, or What do the Super Powers have to do with the Situation? Some of the ‘various and diverse interpretations’ are detailed below: Vietnam has claimed, among other things, that the refugees are ‘victims of Chinese propaganda’ and people who cannot fit the new system. The Vietnamese Premier, Mr. Pham Van Dong says, ‘The refugeeiproblem is a common one for any nation which experiences a revolution. It’s clear that the exodus of people following our spring 1975 victory was a continuation of the evacuation of peple who could not live under the new regime in South Vietnam. The evacuation was started by the Americans. The reasons for the American failure and the continued exodus have been made clear in Mr. Frank Snepp’s book, Decent Interval). Mr. Snepp is a former CIA agent. (Quoted in Far Eastern Economic Review, May 18/79) The Vietnamese also see the Chinese in the country as a ‘fifth column’ in the contest of the present Sino-Vietnam conflict., (See the Guardian, June 4/79) The US and other Western countries, notably Britain, see the refugees as ‘fleeing communism’. Many Americans are using the refugee situation to justify the war retroactively and call for a renewed draft. The Chinese see the USSR friendship with Vietnam as the source of all the troubles, in particular the pressures on the Chinese community. The signing of the USSR-Vietnamese Friendship Treaty was an important event-November, 1978, as was Vietnam’s joining COMECON, the Eastern European trade association.

There are continuing “warlike” conditions in South East Asia. In recent months massive armament purchases have been underway. War is expected by many to occur next in Thailand, possibly involving several countries’ forces. The boat people are seen as an element in the evolving international tensions. What is clear is that the situation in South East Asia is far from stable. It is also clear that the issues involved are very complex and are rrfe with polemics. The humanitarian and generous support of Canadians to the refugees is to be lauded. But we must refrain from uttering undocumented charges. We all need to confront‘and consider the conditions which led to the exodus. Doing this enables us to move beyond the immediate response to the faces of desperate people. It is time for those involved in refugee sponsorship to become more familiar with the background of the crisis. It is time for people to challenge the’ new Canadian government to impliment a policy based on a full and fair assessment of all the facts behind the Indo Chinese refugees. Perhaps the last word comes from Helen Stevens who was quoted in the introduction. She says, “It is worth remembering those who elected to stay.” The question for us, then, is whether we should support and aid the people who remain in Vietnam, who struggle through hard times facing poverty, unemployment and total change in their way of life. It is time to come to enlighiened conclusions about Vietnam which consider the long term needs of that country. - John van Mossel and the staff of the Global Community Centre

Donations to “boat people" brisk in The following is an account of what is being done on campus and in the KitchenerWa terloo a rea for-the refugees: Operation Lifeline Operation Lifeline was initiated by Howard Ade lman, a philosophy professor at York University at a meeting in St. Paul’s riding on June 24, 1979. About one week after the initial meeting of

Operation Lifeline, over 40 ridings and towns in Ontario were in the process of imita<$ing the St. Paul’s mode 1. In KitchenerWaterloo, three University o-f Waterloo students worked with variousethnocultural communities in Kincluding the IndoW Chinese community. An article ,about Operation Lifeline *(K-W) appeared on the fro+t page, of a local newspaper, publishing the telephone


number, and in two days they had five pages of donations and offers of clothing, furniture, money, dishes, accommodation, employment and even a farm! A steering committee, consisting of volunteers, was later formed. ,The public meeting, which took place on July 12, attracted some 300 members of the community and by the end of the evening there were approximately 30 groups of



including church who had assemcv-ows, bled in order to work towards the sponsorship of Indo-Chinese refugees. During the following weeks, offers of material goods and employment continued and the number of sponsoring groups kept increasing. Small commun ities outside K-W became involved. Until now, the K-W branch has been in contact with approximately ,55 sponsoring groups. There are


about 65 refugee families being sponsored, as well as a few single persons. These people are expected to arrive sometime in the fall. The business community in K-W has also been responding to the plight of the IndoChinese. Various businesses have donated men’s clothing, vacuum cleaners, transportation, and a depot. In addition to this, various businesses have offered jobs to the refugees. On campus, students


Lowe1 Aronoff and Mark Seltzer have started a fund raising campaign in an attempt to sponsor one Vietnamese family. They can be contacted at the Integrated Studies Office in the Psychology building, ext. 2345.

St. J@rom?9s Two organizations at St. Jerome’s College are collecting money for sponsorship. They are the St. Jerome’s University Parish and the Religious House which is separate from the college. College president Father Siegfried, says that sponsorship costs depend on various factors including the size of the family, and how soon the family can become selfsupporting. Sponsorship requires‘ a commitment by at least 5 individuals with combined earnings of $100,000 per year and with not less than $2,500 in cash. The Immigration Department estimates yearly sponsorships costs to be $8,000 to $10,000 or the equivalent dollar value in services. Besides sponsorship, St. Jerome’s is also collecting money to spend for the refugee’s various needs when in Canada. Friends at the college have been donating items such as used furniture, kitchen utensils, clothing and carpets.

Association A committee of Chinese students has formed in an effort to help the “boat people”. (The committee is waiting until the Fall term, when it will include a greater number of students, in order to decide just how the money will be spent. One member, Hung Ma, feels that the money should be used to directly supply refugees in their camps where they are in need. A party held in the Summer term raised $600. The committee also attended a summer meeting of various groups in the area united in organizing help. Another meeting is being scheduled by the Federation of Students in . September. The Chinese Students Committee will not directly sponsor people but will forward their money to other organizations. They hope to include other campus groups in their committee in the Fall term. Some have already expressed interest.


to do?

As a very aware section of the K-W community, there are many courses of action that students can take. As members of a privileged country and society, we have a duty to those in a perilous situation. We must throw these people a lifeline and bring them on board our more fortunate boat. Sue Coulter Tim Little Leonard Buckles Randy Barkman

IrC addition to their with science popularity fiction writers, lasers have found an ever-increasing role in scientific and technical applications. Although there are restrictions, notably clouds, lasers are also being developed as military weapons, as envision’ed by science fiction writers of the past. First built in 1960, lasers (Light Amplified by Simulqted ,Emission of Radiation) are, as the name sugge’sts, powerful beams of coherent light produced, by the emission of electromagnetic radiation

Heavy water is used as a moderator in and CANDU reactors, enriched uranium being the required fuel of all reactor designs except CANDU and the British Magqox. The difference between heavy water .and “normal” light water is the presence of deuterium (hydrogen with a neutron) atoms instead of the more common neutronless hydrogens. Although the 100% difference in their masses enables exchange reactions and distiHation to be used for isotopic relative separation, _ the scarcity of deuterium (0.015% of all hydrogen) necessitates the use- of large volumes of hydrogen (usually in the form of

being expecially prominent. Using an infra-red laser beam to excite the elemental or compunded element, it may be chemically or physically reacted to achieve complete separation. Alternatively, an ultra-violet laser beam may facilitate the dissociation of molecules excited- b!,he -a IR laser At the present time, the IR (carbon dioxide) laser is about 20 times as efficient as the UV per mole processed, costing a few cents, compared with several dollars per mole for an argon UV laser. These methods are presently being tested on several different elements, with varying degrees of success. The largest amounts of money are being spent on uranium enrichment and hydrogen/ deuterium separation, because of the high quantities used. The USA alone is presently spending $40 million on its isotopic separation programs, geared primarily towards uranium enrichment, which they expect to produce a $100 billion savings between now and the year 2000 due to an estimated 20 fold reduction in uranium enrichment costs. Conversely, Canada has been concentrating . its research efforts on deuterium separation for the CANDU reactors. With the present heavy water production costs are in the billions in Ontario alone. However, it should be noted, that the nuclear industry would not be the sole beneficiary of this research, because this technology can also be economically applied to isotope separation of less abundant elements, including the transuranium elements found in nuclear wastes. Such isotopes, some of which are radioactive, are important in biochemical and medical research, as isotopic tracers and in cancer and tumor therapy. They also find applications in such far-ranging fields as batteries for This selective excitation satellites, wristwatches can be exploited in a and lighthouses. number of ways, with two Charles Marten

Uranium ore, on the other hand, .requires enrichment of its U235 content only from 0.7 per cent to 2.4 per cent, but the weight difference between U235and U238 of only 0.85 cent makes their Per far more separation difficult. With nothing else to use, present separation methmake use of this ods minute weight difference. !n’ one process, gaseous uranium hexaflouride (UF6) is diffused through a very fine grid, with the U235 compound diffusing just a little faster. Another centrifuges the process U235/U238 hexafluoride mixture, causing the lighter U235 component to migrate to the centre. These processes may have to be repeated over one thousand times to achieve the desired composition of U235. . The high technology, and resource energy demands of these processes uqderline the importance of alternate technological development. Several ,recent developments in laser technology, notably more precise monochromaticity (single wavelength light), tunability (waveleqgth selectability) and a wider bandwidth, make it especially feasible for isotope separation. The basis of the separation is the selective excitation of an elemental isotope without affecting other isotopes of the same element. Because their spectral lines may be very the monochromaclose,, ticity of the laser is very important. The tunability and bandwidth selectability of the laser beam allow an increasing number of isotopes to be separated in this manner, and because greater flexibility is -afforded in selecting the vibrational or atomic spectral line to be used, more efficient separations may be obtained.

They said that Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin and Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Alice Cooper Brothers and SM and Cowboy Lemmie Feldstein and Teenage Fed and Dixie the Wonder Dog and Second43ate City Comedy Revue and the Bluegrass Undershirts would be playing, but I was the only one who showed up. I sure hope next week’s CC Pub with The Beatles turns out to be less of a bad trip!

Still Life

by Prabhakar


The great grey pit seems calmer now; everyone here has gone through interviews at least once, and all that is left are the residues of years of nervous vibrations echbing hollowly from the halls, residues that nd amount of clean antiseptic scrubbing will remove. The enemy now i$ the heat outside, transitions from airconditioning to muggy sunshine to aircbnditioning again, wreaking havoc with already tense metabolism. I sit frozen on the nearly-deserted stop-benches, knees primly together, as a group of laughing . interviewers traverse the periphery of the pit. There are 300 of them competing for 120 of us, and yet they have not lost their inherent cockiness,, remnants of the giggling, smirking secrecy of childhood. Day before yesterday I had an interview

with an incredibly, exuding machismo from every pore; why he wanted a CW I’ll never know, unless from some perverse urge to tame the untameable, as if an HW wasn’t a big enough challenge. He sat there stroking his mustache and ,asking piercingly personal questions with that oh-so-smug tone, while I repressed my urge to brain him with a , chair by keeping my eyes fixed on his throat, remembering William Machester’s description of John F. Kenne,dy’s non-fatal bullet: “ . ..exited through his wind-pipe, nicking the knot of hi? tie.” The narrowness of the cubicle made a similar punishment impossible; there just wasn’t enough room behind him, even if I were to brace my back against the wall and my feet on his shoulders. On the other hand, the fatal head wound . . . My morbid reverie is interrupted with Stephanie sits down beside me. She is carrying the Career Woman image almost to the extreme; but she looks very smart in the dark slimly-tailored three-piece suit. “How brazen can you get, Steph?” “Look, if they want Someone who dresses in chiffon, and other such impracticalities, they can advertise for a House Wife* that doesn’t take brains. Besides, some interviewers find it very . sexy. What’: with you?” “Oh, damn, Steph, sometimes I wonder, why I’m in the co-hab program.” “Don’t be silly”, she says, taking me gently by the shoulders. “It’s a taste of reality, it’s good experience, and there’s so much a better chance that you’ll find someone to spend the rest of your life with.” . “But it seems to immoral.” “Nonsense! It gives you exposure to a wider range of people. You wouldn’t prefer that it happen by chance, that you fall for the first guy that comes along, eh? Besides, if you th&h it was immoral,_ you wouldn’t have joined the program. What happenedI.B-. Masters turn down an interview request?” “I wouldn’t dream of applying there-the whole Masters family is so absurdly pompous, the living environment is great but they treat their women like shit.

Nothing’s happened; I’ll just be glad when it’s all over.” “The interviews or the program?” Before I can reply, the roof speaker erupts, “Barber, S.J. to the paging desk.” “C’est moi--toodle-oo”, says Stephanie, and strolls confidently away. The doubts will abate soon--one more inter\jiew .and I must hand my rankings in. I’ve been fairly lucky this time, most of them *were pretty nice; there were only a couple of duds and one absolute asshole who I’ll definitely drop. This last one seems’quite interesting-damn, every time that speaker blares something I lose my train of thought--he advertised for Career Women, Socialite and Independent Homemaker candidates, either he’s very flexible or he doesn’t know what he wants-“Zylvain, DW , to the paging desk”. I am up and moving before my mind registers the fact that I’ve been called; conditioned reflex, I suppose. The secretary smiles encouragingly as she directs me to Room 1075. She can afford to smile, she’s already married. Watch it, Daphne, don’t get paranoid, don’t divide the world into classes to suit youf- whim. She’s probably a graduate of .the program. Something goes off in my mind as I enter the cubicle and shake hands with the interviewer--not the proverbial bells at first sight, something else altogether. “Good morning, Miss Zylvain”. “Good morning, Mr. Ross”. Always the absurdly formal pose, even though we can’t be more than five years apart in age. Old lechers are always applying to the program, but the Department of Co-Habitation ar$ Placement screens them out. Most of the employers are young executives who can’t support a full-time wife; this one seems t?o exception. He frowns at my resume for a moment, and clears his throat. “Miss Zylvain, did you ever live in a town called Clairmont?” r It hits me. “Kenny!” “Daphne”. He is smiling now. “I thought it might be you--Marlene said you had gone into co-hab and then she lost touch with you”. “Hciw’s she doing these days?” “Just fine--married to a guy working for

the family firm, expecting in August. Geez, it’s good to see you--no longer the little brat ‘Daft-Knees’ I used to yell at. How’re the interviews going?” “Well--you know”. We chat for a while, in a progressively more trivial manner, about old Clairmont friends and acquaintances. Finally, I bring up the question. “Ken--about the position.” “Oh. Yeah”. “Uh--it’s nothi& personal, but--S;ou don’t mind if I drop you, do you?” “No”, he says, looking relieved. “I think I’ll feel easier about it.” He is silent for a moment, then says cheerfully, “So maybe we can get together and have lunch ,‘sometime!” “Sure--you and your new co-wife and me and my new co-hubby”. He flashes me a brief smile, whether wry or bitter I cannot tell, and turns to flick the switch telling the paging desk he’s ready for the next applicant. Walking past the rows of cubicles, the whole interview microcosm starts to fade like a cheap print dress, and the university world comes back, like ghosts haunting in shifts: the soon-due Consumer Science assignment, midterms, take-homes my Biology minor to worry about. Brief hops into parallel worlds, four months apart; I wonder how many co-hab ’ graduates have learned to settle down, hou many careen madly along in pathetic nostalgia until they crash into the &rushing wall of death. Out in the pit there is a small knot of people gabbling excitedly. Curious, I head that way,. “What’s up?” “It’s Karen--she’s going ‘On Own’ status!” Karen is at the nucleus. Her eyes are shining and her hands waving excitedly as she explains. “But there’s no need! I’ve found a boy who suits me, and we’re going to live together, it’s all arranged!” “Isn’t that dangerous? Co-hab can’t figkt \ for you!” ‘\ “Don’t you want a choice?” “What if it doesn’t work out?” She whirls. “Of course it’ll work out! We love each other!” “Love . . .” says someone, bemused.


Vvrong stereo for YOU at the right price isn’t any bargain. *.

Buying a Stereo systeni by price alone is just about the biggest mistake you can make. It may not look like it at the time, because you may be blinded by the low price, but it is. And that goes for “markeddown” expensive equipment as well as “bargain baseient” equipment. For example, you may see a system that costs well into four figures that is marked down many hundreds of dollars. Looks tempting, but if it’s more stereo than you need, where’s the saving ? You could get the same enjoyment from a system costing half as much. Conversely. a less expensive system at a bargain price may not deliver the want, so you’ve blown that bargain too. At Schneider Sound we not only match all the components of a stereo system, we match thesystem toyour requirements and budget. That way you don’t spend any more than you should, or worse, spend less ‘than you should. Mind you, we have “sales” too, but if we think that any item is not what you should buy, we’ll tell you so. Like we say, “you’ll hear more from us.” But it won’t be a Jot of fast talk about “bargain”

An odd mixture... There’s also a jazz ,series for $17.50 (students $13) and an English version of Rossini’s opera Cinderella for $10.50 (students $9). Last year, the Univer~ popular music program under Alfred Kunz was swept away amid much publicity, petitioning, and criticism from fans and participants. That’s cutbacks for you.. .Conrad Grebel, *one of the church colleges, has taken over the program and feels it will be able to offer just as much this year. We’ll see. Conrad Grebel is to organize- three choirs, all with members accepted by audition. The first meeting is tentatively scheduled for September 6. Call Conrad Grebel for more details. The University choir, with 60 or more voices, will perform Vivaldi’s Gloria under the direction of Leonard Enns. Wilbur Maust will be organizing a chamber choir of about 20 voices to do early music-madrigals, cantatas, etc. A chapel choir made up of people associated with Conrad Grebel sings in the chapel and in other churches’ at Sunday services. The music directors hope students will join to form small special-interest groups through the music department. There will be a concert band under the direction of George Holmes. As in the past, there will be a free noonhour recital series every second Wednesday at 12:30 p.m., in the Theatre of the Arts or at Conrad Grebel. The music department also plans at least two- major concerts, as-well as choir performances in co-operation with the K-W Symphony. Rock Music/Concerts Kitchener-Waterloo is notorious as the place where bands say they will come but never do, as Queen didn’t a few years back and Bob Seger more recently. The Memorial Auditorium (a blot in the landscape) is only one of the reasons why; it’s pretty lowclass, even as hockey arenas go. Kiss comes here, as does Supertramp; Genesis and Emerson, Lake and Palmer showed their faces a couple of years ago, but that’s about it. Fortunately, Toronto is not too far away... * Sometimes there are fairly decent bands like Chilliwack or Hott Roxx at some of the local hotels. Not often, though-mostly it’s pure

The Arts


Part 1: The Question A war is a very conservatively run venture. Despite the implications of unrestrained agression and the supposed suspension of all rules of conduct, the advent of war brings with it a raft of accepted forms of behaviour covering such areas as What We think of Us, What We think of Them, Acceptable Ways to Kill People, Acceptable Ways to Be Killed, etc., etc. As a result of this predictability, it is possible to develop a. simple “war movie formula” which, with the proper names and locations added, consitutes a consistent, if somewhat ludicrous, picture of some aspect of life during any given conflict. Now suppose you’ve got a war where all of this predigested etiquette got chucked out the window. Nothing obeys the familiar patterns; the actions of Us, the actions of Them, the actions of the Folks Back Home, all combine to confuse rather than support in the *single-minded manner of the Traditional War. You have a conflict which illustrates old questions in such a way that the old answers just won’t do anymore. , So you come up with new answers, right? Not so fast, this isn’t a true or false quiz; answers are a lot harder to find than that. More than anything else, they need time, lots of time to be found. So how are you going to make a movie of this war? The formula movie? John Wayne tried that in 1968 and the result was the Green Berets. It accurately ‘reflected the seen by Time magazine, perhaps. But it had nothing to do with Viet Nam. (By the way, did you know that Time named Adolf Hitler their Man of the Year in 1938? Another milestone in the history of group journalism...) Francis Ford Coppola has had lots of time to figure out how to make a movie of it. He and George Lucas first discussed the idea while both were in film school. Around 1971, Lucas took the idea and began work on a project, tentatively titled, “Apocalypse Now”. Coppola was busy with other things, most notably setting up a production company and directing a motion picture for Paraabout a Mafia mount chieftain. By 1975, Lucas dropped the project in order to work on a science fictionadventure epic of his own devising, and Coppola took over. It took on many shapes until Coppola decided to model it on the Joseph Conrad short novel, Heart of Darkness. Though set in of the late the Congo 1800's, and dealing with the ivory trade, its concern with humanity’s blacker side perfectly fit the film Coppola decided to make.

First of all, if you don’t see it, one of the world’s best filmmakers wilI either go bankrupt, or be reduced to directing horror flicks for Roger Corman, or both. Secondly, regardless of whether you agree with Coppola or not, regardless of whether you think he’s a genius or a moron, you owe it to yourself to be exposed to a venture this vast. The nerve to make sheer something this colossal, this daring, dangerous, complex, intense, this bloody enormous is something to be impressed with andto be thankful for. The cinematography is always superb, from the dislocating and unsettling opening shot (wonderfully supported by the Doors song, “The End”) to the last scene, as a stoic stone head impassively observes the story’s inevitable conclusion. But at times it is more than superb, it is staggering for the menace and the insanity it presents. The battle scenes are superbly choreographed and executed, simultaneously revolting and .

performances are just what they should be.

The perpetuation and proliferation of armaments is a situation fhat understandably is somewhat overwhelming. Nonetheless, it is a reality which must be dealt with. Dubious Sentinel is an important work in this regard. It gathers subject matter from many areas to trace the connections between the buildup of arms with the inevitable consequences of unfulfilled human need, and increased world military aggression. As a 1977 United Nations report suggests, “Many of the problems faced by the world community, probleps of

relations and technology and so forth, are enhanced arxns


education, housing and many more, is delayed due to lack of resources.” Throughout the Kit the authors point out the enormous consequences of misplaced government priorities, which place the acquisition of armaments above badly needed social services.

Attraction Blaise

A line from Alice Munro’s newest book, Who Do You Think You Are?, jumps to mind ai the perfect summary of Lunar “Treachery is Attractions: the other side of dailyness.” As Blaise puts it: “Two worlds exist. The one we create; it is ours alone‘, private and untranslatable. The other is always there; we do not control it. It has never changed; we can only discover it. There are gates to it everywhere‘, and sometimes the two worlds slide together.” This novel is about the inner worlds created by David Greenwood, an intelligent, but physically repellent boy growing up in the Everglades and later in Palestrti, an “almostnorthern city”-and the outer worlds of what seems an unusually treacherous existance. According to the author, Lunar Attractions is fiction in the mode of autobiography, but life was never lived.” Perhaps for that reasod, the whining, self-glorifying tone which mars so many autobiographical works is almost totally absent. David is conscious from the beginning of being “different.” He is fat and lethargic and weak, alienated from his classand his brash, mates brawny father, a furniture salesman. A solitary child, in love

Perhaps it is anly toward the end of a life that one is able to judge it, to look back over its course and pick out the outstanding moments, the kernel of truth, its living essence. That’s what Alice Munro tries to do in her latest book, Who Do You Think strangely bland, strangely You Are? It’s a collection of itrivial. There are a few ten short stories, charting of hilarious, moments in chronological order the cutting satire, as, for life of dreamy, rebellious example, when town Rose. dwe’llers are referred to as The stories carry the “those waffle-eating reader from Rose’s coffee-drinking aloof and childhood in Hanratty, knowledgeable possessors Ontario, a poor, ugly of breakfast nooks.” country town (with a All in all, though, several marvellous array of odd of these stories sound like characters), to high school, Mary to college, to marriage to a watered-down McCarthy in their cool, dry department store heir, to tone, which cancels out the an, affair with a friend’s passion, the pain, the anger husband, to a divorce, to Rose may really bd feeling living alone with her little and makes it difficult to daughter Anna, to a career believe in her emotions and of sorts in acting and their depth. teaching, , to various “Who Do You Think You attempts at happiness Are”, the last story, seems with other loves, and like an afterthought to finally full circle, back to justify the book’s title.

The delight and torment of first love is given beautifully sensitive treatment in “Privilege”, which tells the story of Rose’s crush on Cora, an older girl at her school. Munro dwells on Cora’s elegant dresses, her heavy hair, her scent, her painted nails, all sbjects of fascination for Rose. “When she (Rose] thought of Cora, she had the sense of a glowing dark spot, a melting centre, a smell and taste of burnt chocolate, that she could never get at.” “The strange coppery taste of longing and despair” which is so often a part of a young girl’s admiration tor an older idol is warmly portrayed here, intact in all its passion, like Rose’s later loves “the high tide; the indelible folly; the flash flood.” At least by comparison, Licensed under the stories dealing with Rose’s adult life seem

Foreigner-Supertramp. So here we are at the edge of the ‘80’s, creeping rot is taking over the FM band and (hell, let’s pull out all the stops here) the Sex Pistols have broken UP. So, with a view to not insult your intelligence unnecessariry, may I suggest a teeny step to the left. where one of the first things you’ll come across that looks at all interesting is Ultravox. There are so many interesting new acts around today it seems *incredible that people are saving money to buy the next Eagles album.

It has on a spectrum, Ultravox great lyrics, melodies (I’ll would land about midway stack up “The Wild, the between the two, exactly and the Damned” where Roxy Music used to Beautiful against anything contembe. In fact, the opening cuts porary) and just enough unusual techniques to make it interesting. Their first album (Ultrgvox!) was produced by Brian Eno, and is the first album I’ve heard produced by that erstwhile gentleman (Devo and Bowie notwithstanding). It came out in early 1977. The second, Ha!Ha!Ha! was for some reason not released in this country and is available only on import. This is a shame, as

it dontains some of their best material, including possibly the most haunting an_d evocative cut that New Wave has produced. The ultimate post-atomic trip would be to read J. G. Ballard’s Terminal Beach in an empty concrete room lit by a single fluorescent bulb while listening to “Hiroshima, mon Amour” (last song, second side.) I haven’t dared try it yet, though a reasonable substitute is to turn out the lights and watch the amplifier LED dance, around. (Vow to myself: never use the term New Wave again. It doesn’t mean anything. Use “fringe music”, which has the, advantage of including material like Kate Bush or George Thoroughgood and The Destroyers.) If you want to test the ‘water before jumping in, I believe two of the best cuts from Systems (Slow Motion/Dislocation) have been released as a single. This group is recommended to all, especially those with tastes in the Fripp-Eno-ManzarieraCale range.

Neil Never


3, 1979.


A rather oblique image of a young man being shot by armed men from a “white boat ‘cornin’ up the river”, it seems to reveal more with every listening, which 1 think is the mark of a really great song. Indeed, the entire album embodies Young’s unique ability to* create a stong pricture with is words, his music, and the strength of emotion in his singing. The closing and opening album tracks, “My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)” and “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)” are mirror images of each other, reflecting the two sides of Neil Young’s songwriting. Since, as indicated earlier, he is eiminetly capable of writing in either a rock or folk style, both tracks are tremendously powerful pieces of music. In particular, the phrase, “It’s better to burn out hat it is to rust”, illustrates not only Young’s brilliance as a writer, but his strength as an artist, since he’s not likely to do either. lohn Meimbecker

Perhaps feeling that Young is the only m successfully-adapted remnant of the Woodstock era-Crosby, Stills and Nash are themselves good examples of old groovers gone to seed-biases this review, but I cannot escape the conclusion, that Neil Young has presently got to be the best songwriter in rock music, and that this position is consolidated by this album.

musk ascetic. At any rate, his Eighth and Ninth Symphonies under Karajan (ZDG 2707.085 and DG 2530 828) are recommendable. The epithet “indulgent” is morefrequently applied to Gustav Mahler ( 1860- 191 l), whose nine symphonies close the Romantic period as Beethoven’s opened it. Mahler’s extravagances will not appeal to everyone, but to those he does, his works are irresistable. Das Lied von der Erde, his unnumbered symphony, is likely his most accessible work, and an unbeatable version of it is on Resonance (2535 184) with Eugen Jochum conducting the Concertgebouw, and Nan Merriman and Ernst Haeflinger singing the accompanvins text. As impressive in a different vein is his “Resurrection” Symphony, the Symphony Number 2, with Abbado conducing the Chicago Symphony and Chorus, and with Marilyn Horne as Mezzo-soprano (2DG 2707 094). Finally, and.most important, though it requires some getting used to, is the Ninth Symphony, which Giulini has recorded with the Chicago Symphony (2DG 2707 097). As we move more into the twentieth century, we encounter Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, Bela Bartok, Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, Serge Prokofiev, Dimitri Shostakovich, Richard Strauss and altogether too many others. Certainly Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring (Abbado, DG 2530 635) must be heard, as must Debussy’s La Mer (Bernard Haitink, Philips 9500 359). We can sample Karajan’s recordings of the Prokofiev Symphony Number 5 (DG 139 040) or the Shostakovich Tenth (DG 139 020),) or Andre Previn’s recordings of various Shostakovich symphonies. On Columbia we have several superlative performances conducted by Pierre Boulez, . works by Bartok (The Wooden Prince, Bluebeard’s Castle), Schoenberg (Gurrelieder, Moses and Aaron), Stravinsky and others. .


Not Quite So Orchestral Stuff Also orchestral in nature are concerti, that is, works for orchestra and solo instrument. Traditionally the role of the orchestra is reduced here to that of accompaniment, as they were generally written by the soloist for the purpose of demonstrating his virtuosity. In the case of Beethoven’s Third, and Fifth Concerti Fourth however one isPiano scarcely a’ware of this (in striking contrast to Paganini’s Violin Concerti). Several good performances of these concerti are available with such notable pianists as Vladimir Ashkenazy (continued overleaf...)

(6769 002 3LP) versions are by the ASMF under Marriner, on Argo and Philips, respectively. The ASMF also offers a version of Mozart’s Requiem, but it has a rough time comparing with Karajan’s (DG 2530 705). Many awesome performances of the Missa Solemnis exist-it is a major work on the scale of the Ninth Symphony. Two of the best are Jochum’s (Philips 6799 001 2LP) and Giulini’s (Angel S-3836 ‘2LP). Colin Davis is the great Berlioz interpreter, and his version of the Requiem (Phillips 6700 019 2LP) is justifiably a standard. The classic Verdi Requiem performance is by Giulini, and dates from 1964. Abbado, however, has recorded it, and, when it is finally released, it may prove to be the champion. At last, Barenboim’s debut DG recording of the German Requiem (2DG 2707 066) is probably the best around. Other vocal works of major importance are Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, Bruckner’s Te Deum, Vivaldi’s Gloria, and

Claudio Monteverdi’s ‘Vespers. For those with a taste for opera, there are to consider Gioacchino R ossini’s Barber of Seville, Beethoven’s Fidelio, Georges Bizet’s Carmen, Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme, Jacques Offenbach’s La Vie Parisienne, and, for the strong of heart, Richard Wagner’s Gotterdammerung, Richard Strauss’ Salome, Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle, Schoenberg’s Moses and Aaron, and, the major opera of the twentieth century, Berg’s Wozzeck.


Illiterate Ramblings

Naturally the best place to be purchasing classical records is not Waterloo. In Toronto the best places to get records cheap are A&A and Sam the Record Man, both on Yonge street, just north of Dundas. = Mail order records are available from Andre Perrault, 1700 rue des Cascades, Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, J2S 351, and, in England, The Long Playing Record Ltd., Squires Gate Station, Approach Blackpool, FY8 2SP. The latter is a resource only in emergencies, for import rates are quite high In K-W, the cheapest way to get classical discs is by orde,ring them through Thee Record Store in the Campus Centre. The Flip Side record shop in Westmount Plaza used to have a good selection of recor-ds at reasonable prices, but their stock has since deteriorated. George Kadwell Records in _ Waterloo Square has a good selection of discs, but their prices are unjustifiably high. At last count, the same note held true fol’ Music World in Fairview Plaza. Visits to the Sam’s outlet in Kitchener are invariably disappointing, and the A&A franchise in Market Square is almost as bad. There is a decent record store in Conestoga Mall, but it is so inaccessible as to be

At Last! For the classical neophyte, several accessories may be useful: a musical dictionary, a musical encyclopedia, a S-chwann-I Record and Tane Guide. a Gramophone Clas’sical Ca talbgue for special European import listings, the occasional purchase of a variety of stereo magazines( Gramophone, Fugue, Stereo Review, Records and Recording, High Fidelity etc ad nauseam), and the Penguin Stereo D-,--J ne:LuIu

K-W area willhave goodsports In terms of spectator sports, one doesn’t have to look far for exciting action in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Believe me, some of the best games you’ll see this year will probably take place in the PAC, at Seagram’s Stadium, at the Kitc’hener Memorial Auditorium, and on your TV set. For the amount of excitement the University of Waterloo Warriors or the Kitchener Rangers can provide you with, the price of the ticket is a real bargain. The Warriors football team, while not strong contenders for the College Bowl, are definitely worth taking a look at. Their home games are played at Seagram’s Stadium on Saturday afternoons. For those living on or near campus, the Stadium is only a short walk -away, one block west of Albert on Seagram Drive. Admission last year was free if you were smart enough to pick up a complimentary season ticket (good for free Warriors admission to basketball as well!). It’s about a dollar otherwise. The Warriors Band, is always on hand to stir up the crowd and provide entertainment at halftime (sometimes). All in all, taking a Saturday afternoon off to watch the Warriors go head to head against Laurier, Guelph, or other Ontario University teams _ can be a most enjoyable experience. Even if you have no interest in basketball (It’s just, a dumb sport for pituitary cases, right?),

you can’t help but enjoy yourself at a Warriors basketball game. You can boast about this team because its known across Canada as one of the best in the country. I’d even go as far as to say their games are exciting as any American university basketball game. Last year one of the games played at the PAC was televised across Canada on the CBC, so it you’re . lucky you might even get yourself on national television by going to one of the games. It’s not unusual to have a crowd of 4 or 5 thousand show up so it’s a good idea to arrive early for a good seat. Games are usually Friday night or Saturday afternoon. One only has to look at the list of ex-Kitchener Rangers to realize that there’s some pretty good hockey being played at the OHA Junior A level. Some of the more noteable former members of the Rangers include Rick Chartran, Don Edwards, Don Lute, Dave Maloney, Doug Visebrough, Larry Robinson and Walt Thaezuk, a pretty formidable collection of talent. The guys playing for them now may well be the future stars of the NHL. The Rangers play all their home games Septemtheir home games (September to April) at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium, located at 400 East Avenue, in Kitchener. The phone number of the box office is 885-7125. If its professional sports you truly crave, I’m-afraid you’ll have to travel a few

__-playing ball until October. I might as well add a note about armchair spectator sports as I’m sure that more than just a few of you will spend many hours staring at the tube. Once the NFL season gets rolling there will probably be the usual four or five games on every Sunday plus the occasionaly Saturday and of course game, Monday Night Football with Howward and Don. There will also be an assortment of US college games on Saturday, and a’ few CPL games every week ending with the Grey Cup at the end of November. Hockey Night in Canada should begin in October and will probably have a bit more to offer us this year with the addition of

miles out of the town. For Canadian football fans, the Hamilton Ticats and the Toronto Argonaughts are nearby and tickets are always easy to get. To American football fans, the Detroit Lions and the Buffalo Bills are the closest. For hockey fans, Maple Leaf Gardens is only about an hour away, Buffalo Memorial Auditorium two and the Detroit hours, Olympia, three hours. The Blue Jays don’t finish their season until the beginning of October, but I personally fell that but I .personally feel that you’ll have to be a glutton for punishment to watch an inept team like the Jays try to play baseball. The Detroit Tigers will also be

Sommerville is entering his third season with the UW team and is enrolled in Political Science. Beckham plays at the offensive guard position while Sommerville is a cornerback. Bill Boug who has played quarterback and *offensive end while at Waterloo will return for his fourth year of inter-university play. Boug was out of school last from a year, suffering broken leg.

Other returnees on the offensive team who will be expected to assist the team will be: Dom Ruggieri a second-year running back from Downsview; Dave Goodwin, a third-year running back who suffered a broken bone in his foot last season; Joe Alves, the exciting running back who set the Warrior record for the longest run from scrimmage. Last season against the University of Guelph, Alves ran for 75 yards. Another record setter from last year’s team who will be back with the Warriors will be Steve Valeriote. Last season, Valeriote returned a punt for 130 yards and a touchdown in a game against York University. The 130 yard return is also an 0-QIFC league record. Other returnees will be: Phil Fletcher, who was out of school last year and who will- try for one of the linebacker spots with this year’s team; Steve Keating, who is another player returning after a year out

the UW inter-university scene, an appreciation of the high level of competition is nothing new. Many UW athletes have represented Canada in International competitions where they have measured up very well to the best that the world has to offer. These athletes are on view throughout the year. And the price is certainly right. UW Staff and ,Faculty can obtain a Season Ticket which will provide admission to all interuniversity athletic events for which a charge is made. For the sum of $7.00 an individual staff member can gain admission to four football games, thirteen hockey games and seventeen basketball bgames. Admission to the Naismith Basketball Classic, a tournament involving eight of the best university teams in the country in November of each year, makes the purchase of a Season Ticket a bargain in itself. Staff and Faculty Season Tickets allow admission of elementary school children free of charge, if they accompany their parent to a game. Staff and Faculty Season Tickets are available in the Athletic Department Office. Call Ext. 3152 for more information.
