ISA to regain Federationdub The International Students’ Association (ISA) was. reinstated into the Federation of Students by a joint action of Fed president Mark McGuire and Board of Entertainment chairperson Sue (BENT) Rosenberg last Monday. The group was suspended last July 18 by a ruling of the BENT committee for several counts of fiscal irresponsibility, falsification of submitted documents and severe internal problems. McGuire, claiming responsibility for both the suspension and reinstatement, referred back to the committee’s original decision which included a clause for the future reinstatement of the group at such time as they “can sort out their internal problems.” He calls the recent “sorting out” the only reason for his decision, and hopes that the action taken last summer will not be necessary in the future. He also stated that he was pleased with the apparent new course of the ISA. The ISA was last year removed from its affiliation with the Federation for several reasons. At that time, bills amounting to over $400 were submitted Rick then-president t0 Smit, from the organizdebts not covered ation; under the ISA budget nor as

p-art of Fed policy. Suspect lists of membership, a required part of budget applications, were also with small submitted, numbers of actual members included in a larger group of international students. The Federation alleged that only,six of 183 names submitted were actually budgetable ISA members. The Federation grants funds on a per capita basis, according to the number of Fed members within the group, and the needs of each club. The last budget of $700 was designed to allow for the outstanding debts. On Jply 26, the ISA held a general meeting for elections of a n’ew executive. President members, now numbering approximately 70, who. were interviewed seem happy with their new leadership and sense of direction. A number of activities have been although there planned, h’as been no comment from any member of the executiveat thistimeontheplans of the ISA or the recent actions of the Federation. . The move by McGuire and Rosenberg will have to be ratified by the BENT committee at their next for. meeting, scheduled Monday, September 24. It is not expected that ratification will be denied.

The University of Waterloo Senate approved a report submitted by its Long Range Planning Committee at its first meeting of the fall term last Monday. Entitled Planning for the Third Decade, the report outlines U.W.‘s goals and objectives and their applications over the next ten years. The meeting was devoted mainly to discussion of the report. Debate about a clause concerning international students was brief. Federation President, Mark MCGuire, raised a question about the higher tuition fees charged foreign stvdents in light of Senate policy “to encourage for’ eign students to study here and to continue to offer them all the benefits routinely offered to Canadian Planning Comstudents.” Chairman T.A. mittee academic Brzustowski, vice-principal, replied that Senate had decided at a previous meeting not ‘to erase the fee differential. A charge that two recommendations in the report were sexist was discussed at greater length. Professor Rowe of the mathematics

faculty suggested that recommendations 63 and 64 were somewhat discriminatory against male applicants for faculty and staff vacancies as well as for



academic programs. He felt that the wording should be changed from “the University of Waterloo should continue in its efforts to attract qualified women...”

to II... should continue in its efforts to attract qualified people... ” Brzust0wsk.i responded that such a change would significantly weaken the intent to emphasize the need to give women opportunity on equal campus. A concern about audiovisual library resources was expressed by Professor Smucker of Conrad Grebel College. He pointed to the first recommendatibn which suggests that support services be maintained at the highest level possible. While the collection pf printed resources is nearing the one million item mark, Smucker felt that budget restrictions had kept the audio-visual collection at the level of the I<itchener Public Library. It was decided to defer the question to a Senate subcommittee for study. In other business, the senate approved an award to the Honourable Justice T.R. Berger. He will receive an Honourary Doctorate of Environmental Studies (DES) at UW’s fall convocation for his efforts in investigating a proposal to build a pipeline through the Mackenzie Valley.

Marg Sanderson Even though the statistics for full-time students have not been finalized as yet, it appears that about 100 fewer students will attend the University of Waterloo this year. . According to Gary But kley of the Registrar’s Office, there will be approximately 11,000 students here for the fall term. Faculty by faculty, the student totals compare with those of November 1978 and with this date last year Although, from the statistics quoted above, it may seem that enrollment has increased since last year at this time, this is not necessarily true. According to Buckley, last year at this time there were 1,415 pre-


registered students who were not registered. This year, there are only 946. “Allowing for approximately the same number of students who do not register, we could be dealing with about 500 less possible registrations,” said Buckley. Along with a decrease in the number of students attending classes, a decline in the number of students applying for loans and grants through OSAP (the Ontario Student Assistance Program) has been noted. According to the Student Awards Office, there were 4,097 applications at this time last year. This year, the number of students requesting’ OSAP assistance has reached only 3,671 to date. up to Sept.14/79

The week one The start of the school year, any school year, brings withit certain all-important questions. What teachers (orprofessors, for those of you who have thoroughly rid yourselves of the high school mentality) will I be, getting. 3 Are they any good? How large will my classes be? Will I know anybody in them? Each of us, I am sure, has his own. In the first year of university, with a multitude of other problems to worry about, these considerations take on an added importance. I have found this to be, for the most part, needless. After a week of classes, indeed, after the butterflies have, vacated yourt stomach, you will find that this year really isn’t any more difficult than any other. The faces may have changed, but the roles are still the sameThat is, you:re still going to school to learn, and they are still here to teach. (Unfortunately, what all too often occurs is that we enter University with the idea that it is a radical change from the system of teaching which we have grown accustomed to. Granted, there are some differences-there are no high school classes with three hundred people, for instance-but. the essential purpose remains the same.)

Why The Precision Haircut Might Be Right For You. ’ If you hate the way your haircut disappears the day after, come to Command Performance where we specialize in the precision haircut. Precision haircutting is our technique for cutting the hair in harmony with the way it grows. So, as it grows, it doesn’t lose its shape. And because the hair is cut to fall naturally, you don’t have to keep fussing with it. Usually a shake of the head does it. The precision haircut with shampoo and blowdry costs just fourteen dollars for guys and gals. We also offer permanent waves, coloring, frosting and conditioning. No appointment is needed, just come in. And you’ll see that precision is right for you. a

The Walrus and the Carpenter from Through the Looking Glass Lewis Carroll Have you ever had reason to stay awake for an entire night? Have you ever awakened one fine morning, worked through the day, through the evening and, without sleeping at all, through the next day as well? Recently, I had the dubious pleasure of having such a forty hour day thrust upon me, and the experience reminded me that such action has curious effects. l Most of us have a built-in clock which registers the passage of time. We know “today” as the period of time between waking and sleeping. “Yesterday” is, of course, the period of time -between the last waking and sleeping. When you have stayed up for more than thirty-six hours, though, concepts such as “yesterday” and “today” lose their relevance. During the second half ofi this period of. time (the second day), your perceptions of time will be changed. It really is wild.

Welcome” of


say refunds Marg Sanderson Students who were lining up for registration and orientation activities last week may have noticed other lineups in various areas of the campus center. As a result of a student referendum in 1978, certain student fees have been made refundable upon request. Some students stood in line yet another time to ask for Federation, Imprint and CKMS-FM refunds. For the first part of last week, CKMS-FM refunds were -available upon the completion of a form in the campus center. Now, students who wish to withdraw their fees will have to make the trek to the Bauer warehouse. According to CKMSFM’s Dave Assmann, the demand for refunds is down from 1978. As of this date last year, 357 students had asked for a. refund, compared with 280 this year. “It’s nice to see that the refund rate is down”, says Assmann. “It’s encouraging for us.” The number of students

in decline

asking for Federation Fee refunds is down slightly as .well, according to Helga Petz of the Federation of Students Office. As of this date last year, 15 more students had filled out refund forms. The main reason for refund requests seems to be financial need. “Most students simply say on the form that they need the money”, says Petz. Some students, however, maintain that they won’t be needing or using the services offered by the Federation or its affiliates, NUS (National Union of Students) to which 50 cents of the $19-per-term fee goes, and OFS (Ontario Federation of Students), which receives 75 cents. Ms. Petz noted that many students did not realize what services were provided by the Federation of Students, and when it came time to fill in the refund form, they made the decision not to ask for their money back. Refund requests from students in the faculty of

Mathematics are higher this year, but according to the Federation Office the Engineering students, whose refund demands were low last year, are this year even lower. In what could be seen as rather the reverse side of fee withdrawals, some students are actually paying to join the Federation. Graduate students, who are not automatically Federation members, may avail themselves of the services offered by the Federation upon payment of a$lO-perterm fee. To date, about a dozen students havesigned up, says Ms. Petz. Since this is to be the first year of Imprint refunds, it is impossible to say whether the refund requests are greater or fewer than last year. To date, 62 co-op and 350 full-year students have asked to withdraw their Imprint fees. “Two or three of the students said that they only read the Gazette,“said Imprint’s Sylvia Hannegan. “Most of them though” she noted, “said that they needed the money.”

BEER announces all nig It games






Frank Morrison An International Play Fair, to be held in the PAC for 24 hours, and featuring a marathon games playing session will be one of the Board of Education’s most exciting activities this term. At the first meeting of the combined Boards of Education and External Relations (BEER) last Tuesday, the new members heard about this year’s planned activities and about the activities of last summer. One of the major purposes of the meeting was to appoint board members. Members of BEEI; include the education directors from each society executive, as well as delegates from KW Probe, Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG), the Global Community Center, and interested students at large. Attending the meeting on Tuesday were representatives from Engineering, Math, Environmental Studies, KW Probe, and some other interested students. Board of Education (BED) chairperson, Diana Clarke gave the members an outline of the board’s responsibilities and then described some planned activities for the year. The two boards have between them responsibility for political action on affairs (e.g. university cutbacks, landlord-tenant matters), educational matters (the board of education has ties with the teaching resource centre and with the academic vice presi-

An International Play Fair, planned for the week of November 5-10, will feature displays on games new and old, and tournaments for both athletic and board games. As well, an energy week is planned, and for winter term, a celebration of life week. A large display on cutbacks, originally planned for orientation, will be exhibited ‘in the Campus Centre later that the budget for orienClarke outlined some of the board’s activites over the summer. Discussions held with Kitchener Transit and the University administration were ina strumental in getting the new shuttle bus system started. Representations made at Queen’s Park led to the partial control of university residences under


jurisdiction of the new Residential Tenancies Act. Discussions held with food services led to the formation of a food committee. Clarke is currently seeking people to serve on this committee. The board looked over the budget they have to work with. The total allocation for the two boards is over $19,000. It was noted that the budget for Orientation was not fully spent. At the meeting Sarah Metcalfe was unanimously elected Board of External Relations (BER) chairperson. Metcalfe is a 3B Math student and previously has been active with the Math society. Her election now goes to Federation Council for approval. As well Clarke announced that Diane Marks had been. appointed vice chairperson of BED and Jeff Page would be vice-chairperson of BER,

. Justice Berger to receive UW degree At its fall convocation Friday, October 19, the University of Waterloo will award an honorary doctor of environmental studies (D.E.S.) degree to the Hon. Mr. Justice T.R. Berger of the supreme court of British Columbia. The award was aDDroved bv the Universitv’ Senate last Monday. iSee senate article page 4. Mr. Justice Berger is widely known as the principal author of the Berger report which followed his inquiry into the proposal to build a pipeline through the Mackenzie Valley. The son. of an RCMP sergeant, he was born in Victoria in 1933. After studying law at the University of British Columbia he was called to the B.C. bar in 1957 and shortly thereafter began participating in a number of precedentsetting cases. One of these included the case of a silicosis victim who had been refused compensation by the Workmen’s Compensation Board; he was the first to win redress against the Board’s decision. .

OTTAWA (CUP)-After a summer of slow responses, the number of Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) applications has risen drastically, andis now only marginally below the rate of last year. According to Jan Grisdale, liaison officer of the student awards branch of the ministry of education, the application rate is now only 1.5 per cent behind the level of a year ago. OSAP applications were down 3.5 per cent as of August 31 and down a whopping 15-20 per cent at the end of July, According to Alan Golombek, information officer for the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS), the slow initial response was due primarily to inadequate information distribution by the ministry, and the fact that pre-printed forms were not sent out to applicants from the previous year. In the past, all students who applied for OSAP in the previous year automatically received a pre-printed application form early in the summer. University of Toronto student awards officer Patrick Philips also attributes the slow initial response to mistakes in the first printing of 350,000 application forms that consequently had to be reprinted. Golombek noted that as promised last January the ministry of colleges and universities (MCU) did not increase the plan’s cost of living allowance for students because such a change would create administrative problems. The lack of anincrease has enabled the ministry to process applications more quickly, but means that students will suffer financially. Possible administrative problemsdid not stop the ministry reducing the amount of loan assistance that single parent students who receive family benefits will be eligible to receive under this year’s plan.




TORONTO-The University of Toronto’s student union has voiced its opposition to a proposed merger of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Colleges and Universities to Ontario Legislators. “We fear that a merger of the ministries will not adequately confront these (student) issues:indeed swamped in a larger ministry, the problems of universities may well be obscured and not overcome,” said David Jones, U of T Administrative Council Students’ (SAC) president.

. IUI-JS calls for changes in Canadastudent loan plan OTTAWA-The current Canada Student Loan Plan fails to live up to its stated objective of providing all qualified Canadians with the oppurtunity of reaching their educational potential. That is the major conclusion of a National Union of Students (NUS) brief drafted for presentation at the Canada Student Loan Plenary Group (CSLPG) meeting held this week in Quebec City. The CSLPG is .made up of provincial government administrators and is the body responsible for the development of the Canada Student Loan Plan. The fourteen page NUS brief suggests that a new plan be instituted providing for: - The participation of part-time students in the plan - A NUS nominated member on the Plenary Group - Provisions which recognize the extra costs of handicapped students - The inclusion of a mechanism that addresses the particular financial problems of women I- Applicants with permanent residence ‘status receiving the same treatment as any other applicant - The age of majority being the only criteria for independent status - The required student contribution being the actual amount that the applicant is able to save applicant is able to save - Educational expenses being based on actual costs - The repayment schedule starting six months after employment is found Copies of the brief were sent to the CSLPG so that the group would have time to assess the proposals. According to Len Taylor, NUS staffperson, an NUS delegation was permitted to make the official presentation of the brief. This will be the first time that students have been allowed to attend and speak at the Plenary Group sessions. “We do not expect any immediate major changes to come abvut becacrse of

U of T Graduate Students’ Union president Lee, Walker charged at the hearing that the government had‘already decided to merge the ministries and that the hearings were meaningless. The hearings, which have been on for three weeks, will continue for another month. The committee will then report back to Bette Stephenson, who is currently both education and colleges and universities minister, and the bill merging the ministries will be presented for third and final reading. “The fact that the merger is already in effect, yet there are still hearings, is a reflection on the government’s treatment of education,” she said. “The problems that we face today are all related to money-that’s the only reason for the merger.” Women

Commowealth-Scholarship Two of this year’s 30 Commonwealth Scholarship winners from Canada are graduates of the University of Waterloo. Gary Rubinstein * of Willowdale will be leaving shortly to begin doctoral studies at Cambridge University, England. The scholarship will continue through 1981. Rubinstein has been in Waterloo’s integrated studies program for the past three years. This program has been in operation for about 16 years; it permits’students to work out their own study programs according to their interests. Often they pursue special subjects on th&r own, without attending classes as regular students do. In addition to Rubinstein, Judith Adams of Kitchener, who graduated this year with an Environmental Studies degree in honours urban and regional planning, leaves September ,chool of Economics and Political Science, University of London, Science, University of London, where she will take a Master of Science program in social planning.

It’s no wonder that University of Waterloo students complain that their money disappears so quickly. The Engineering Society proved why this is so during one of their orientation activities. Engsoc purchased a package of ordinary toothpicks for 18 cents and distributed one to every participating frosh engineer. Each student was then told to-go out onto campus and sell his or her toothpick. At the end of the day, the frosh had received a number of unusual items in exchange for their toothpicks. These included C:qsdiPF T:=y money, bus tokens, and two Frencn francs. To everyone’s amazement, some students on campus were willing to pay up to two dollars for a single toothpick! In the true style of a university student, one person even made out a cheque to “One Engineering Frosh” for 50 cents. (Incidentally, this was cashed by the bank.) Total proceeds of the venture? Thirty four dollars! (for Big Sisters.] Photographic


Photographs taken through scanning electron microscopes will be on display in the Biology-Earth Sciences Museum on the University of Waterloo campus, starting Monday, September 17 and continuing until Wednesday, October 17. This unusual photographic exhibit is on loan from the Royal Museum. It includes pictures of such things as a part of a mosquito’s eye, and the pollen of a pine tree. The display includes an explanation as to how scanning electron microscopes work. These instruments will magnify up to 50,000 times, enabling us to see things that are simply not visible through the most powerful optical microscopes. They also have great depth of field at high magnifications, so one can get a three-dimensional look at tiny objects; The museum is open to the public from 9:66 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is no charge. The museum is located in room 370, on the third floor of the biology complex. Automotive

looking into the type of lubricant that would be used in the “new” automatic transmissions. He simply calls these “continuously variable speed” transmissions. They would function on a principle quite different from those used to connect engines to wheels in present day cars. Whereas present day automatic transmissions relay power from the engine to the driveshaft through fast-moving fluid, the continuously variable speed transmissions would-as Dr. Tevaarwerk sees it-transmit the power through a very thin film of lubricant which would be between the two steeldiscs, under very high pressure. The pressure would be so high, in fact, that the lubricant would act much like a solid-like a high density polymer. “Thus a very different principle is involved in the continuously variable speed transmission,” he says. “Our research indicates, however, that it would be a far more efficient device in terms of fuel savings. In fact we have seen estimates of savings in the area of 30 per cent . , . which would be fantastic when you think of what it could mean to our energy picture.” With the kind of transmission Dr. Tevaarwerk has in mind, moving an automobile from a standing start to high speed wouldn’t involve those distinct surges one experiences with a standard transmission or even a conventional automatic one. There would simply be a smooth acceleration throughout. Dr. Tevaarwerk’s research is funded by the National Science and Council Engineering Research (NSERC) and also by the U.S. government’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The funding has enabled him to construct his own “toroidal traction” machine on campus, including instrumentation that enables him to analyse what is happening when he runs an experiment on it. The machine consists of two discs, the lower of which operates at high speed, the upper being driven through afluidfilm. By skewing the axes of the two discs in relation to each other Dr. Tevaarwerk can measure fluid performance including the amount of slippage. Dr. Tevaarwerk’s .mathematical model will tell him what’s happening using less data than has hitherto been required. For these efforts he was re’cently honoured by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. In the society’s judgment he produced the best research paper in the field of lubricants during the past year.





Many intelligent students perform at less than their true potential because they encounter problems in organizing their time, in reading quickly and efficiently, concentrating when studying, or preparing for examinations and tests. The University of Waterloo Study Skills programme helps students tocope with difficulties of this sort, and will be offering a number services during the coming term. Two workshop formats are offered to respond to differing student schedules. In each case the meetings take place once a week and involve students working in small groups of no more than 20 people to focus on the following skills: Time management and organization for study; - Effective listening and note-taking; - Better reading skills; - Preparing for exams. I run for five Series “A” workshops weeks, beginning the week of September 24, and each sessionlasts two hours.

Series “B” workshops run for eight weeks, beginning the weekof September 24, with each session lasting one hour. Thus the series will end in midNovember. The Study Skills Advisor is available by appointment to help diagnose learning problems and give asistance on an individual basis. Self help manuals and a small library of books on study skills are available for students in the resource centre, Needles Hall Room 2068. A study room is also available for students who lack a quiet atmosphere to study. Further information on any of these services may be obtained from the Study Skills Advisor, Laurel Thorn, at extension 2464 or from the reception desk in Needles Hall Room 2070.

L In the past few years, scientists have learned more about the other planets in our solar system than had been discovered in almost 370 years of observation through earthbound telescopes. This newly-acquired knowledge, to a large extent, comes from a number of highly successful unmanned space probes, launched by the United States and the Soviet Union. These tiny craft have flown past five of the nine planets in our solar system, in some cases orbiting and even landing upon the planets themselves. In December of 1973, the probe, Pioneer 10, became the first man-made object to reach the planet Jupiter. It sent back thousands of instrument readings and several excellent color photographs 0.f the giant planet. It is currently on its way out-of the solar system altogether, thus becoming the first interstellar spacecraft.

1974 ias -even more eventful, In February of that year, the Makiner 10 spacecraft sent back the first closerup photographs of the planet Venus, taken in ultraviolet light through a temporary gap in that planet’s almost continuous cloud cover. One month later, Mariner 10 became the first probe ever to visit the planet Mercury. It sent back numerous .pictures of the heavily-qratered surface, and returned to that planet twice during the following year. In December of T974, Pioneer 11 (twin of Pioneer 10) flewpast Jupiter, providing additional information about that world. But its mission did not stop there. By using Jupiter’s enormous gravity, Pioneer 11 was able to change its trajectory and continue on into the outer solar sy’stem, passing Saturn just this month and giving us our ‘first detailed look at the ringed world. In early 1976, two Viking spacecraft arrived at Mars. This was not our first look at the Red Planet; a number of earlier American and Soviet probes had flown past the planet, and several had actually gone into orbit. However, this spacecraft was a little different.

After‘ orbiting the planet for a while, scouting out suitable landing sites, the first of the two spacecraft separated into two parts. The larger of the two, known as the Orbiter, remained where it was. Its task wasto circle the planet and take readings from above. The smaller vehicle, known as the Lander, fired it.s engines and descended from orbit, coming to rest on the surface a short time later. Although earlier Russian probes had attempted to land, all but one failed to survive down to the surfade; the one that did make it transmitted for a scant 20 seconds before dying. The laboratories analyzed the atmosphere, determining its density and composition. They took photographs of the surface through all the seasons of the Martian year. They looked for life, and found no conclusive evidence of its presence or its absence. Above all, they told us things about that world that could never have been learned from Earth. By contrast, 1977 was a relatively dull year. Though the Vikings were still in full operation, the main excitement was over. The first of a trio of sophisticated mini-telescopes was put into orbit around the earth, scanning the skies using x-rays and gamma rays instead of ordinary light. They also looked for black holes by searching for the powerful energy emmissions -given off when matter falls inwards towards them. Nothing, however, was new on the planetary front. In this respect, 1978 was somewhat better. A virtual armada of sophisticated probes, both American and Soviet, were arriving at the planet Venus. The American fleet consisted of an orbiter, designed to circle the planet for a full Venusian year while monitoring it from the van,tage point of a planetary orbit, and a cluster of five atmospheric probes. Upon arrival at the planet, the probecluster separated into its component elements. One large probe with a heat shield to protect it during passage through the atmosphere of Venus was released. Three smaller probes, also equipped with heat shields, were similar,ly sent off. Finally, the drum-

drawing shaped platform which held the cluster together (and which was also equipped with instrument ation) plunge-d into the planet’s atmosphere. The probes descended down to the surface, floating down on parachutes to give them as much useful time as possible. They produced a detailed “map” of the planet’s atmosphere, determining its pressure, temperature, and composition. They studied the winds of Venus, and the variation in brightness on the way down, One hardy probe even survived the landing and sent back considerable information about conditions at ground level. All in all, the mission was a success. The Soviets fared equally well. T*heir two orbiters, though apparently not as heavily loaded with instruments as the American orbiter, went into orbit and released their landers. The landers descended to the surface and collected data for some time. before finally succumbing to the heat and pressure of the Venusian surface. This year has been an eventful one as well. The arrival of Pioneer 11 at Saturn just three weeks ago has given scientists a new wealth of data about that world. In addition the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes that provided so much information about Jupiter and its moons

earlier this year are already on their way to visit Saturn during the next two years. The future, however, seems bleak. The only space probe currently planned is Project Galileo, designed to orbit Jupiter and send a probe into its atmosphere. Other missions are possible, but funding cutbacks make major new starts unlikely, at least for the time being. Most observers attribute space program cutbacks to the apparent high cost of such missions. Compared to other government programs, however, the cost of space exploration is not high. The entire Pioneer lo-11 mission, which gave us our first glimpses of the two largest planets in our solar system, cost each American only a few dollars, which were spread out over a period of’ years. To put this in perspective, the total cost of Project Voyager to each adult American is about the same as a six-pack of beer, again spread out over a period of years. It remains to be seen whether these statistics influence the decision-makers who determine how resources are allocated. But there can be little doubt that the return on the investment will, in the long term, be enormous.







Bleak fut-ure for post-secondary ,

Bill Tieleman (CUP) The writing was on the wall for years but \ only now are the full effects of continuous education funding cutbacks being felt. And as students return to classes once again, a look across the country indicates a bleak future for post-secondary education in the 1980’s. Among the most alarming developments: In Ontario public universities and colleges could be lining up-at private banks, hoping to borrow money to cover anticipated million-dollar deficits in their operating budgets. The Ontario government replies that it has no money and no objections to its universities following the lead of Ontario students and borrowing from banks for education financing. Ontario students also got a five per cent tuition hike this year. - In Quebec some university administrators are cheered at the prospect of incurring budget deficits of “only” $2 million. That’s because deficits in previous years have topped $6 milliqn. - In the Atlantic provinces students who survived the highest summer unemployment rates in Canada are scraping money together ’ to pay ever-rising tuition fees. - In B.C. tuition fees go up again as of May, 1980 while education services go down because of low government grants. - In Alberta, despite a $5 billion Heritage Fund rich in petrodollars, universities face deficits approaching $500,000. And a report on post-secondary education funding opens the possibility of putting tuition fees on an arbitrary scale, a recommendation both university administrations and student unions oppose. - In Manitoba, students looking for relief , after a 20 per cent tuition hike last year are instead facing another jump of six per cent in this-fall’s fees. And once again the tuition increase signals another decrease, not increase in the university services. After getting a meagre six per cent increase in funding, one university president said fatalistically, “It’s only half what we asked for but it’s twice what they gave us last year.” - In Saskatchewan, students who thought they had a slightly more liberally-spending government than the rest of Canada found out how wrong they were. After tuition jumped 30 per cent in three years without any increase in the services, the government hit them with yet another . fee hike. At nearly) every post-secondary institution in Canada administrations looking to cut costs withoutfiringstaff tookaimat libraries.


- Many universities are being forced to cut both support staff and teaching faculty to make ends *meet. Positions are left unfilled when faculty members leave, retire or die and temporary instructors and teaching assistants find it harder to work. - Foreign students are becoming an endangered species at Canadian universities as all but three provinces implement differential tuition fees. Starting this year, in the Maritime provinces, ’ universities will receive $750 less in provincial grants for every foreign student registered at their institution. -. Clearly, education cutbacks are national, not provincial in scope, and governments, rather than responding with alarm to the deteriorating post-secondary education situation, are continuing the underfunding policies begun in the mid-1970’s. Why?


There are two basic problems, either one of which would cause serious difficulties for universities and colleges. Togethertheyspell 1 potential disaster for the education system. The first is declining enrolment. Basically the children of the 1950s’ baby boom have grown up, received their education and moved into the labour force. This demographic bulge, combined with society’s desire to make education more accessible, forced post-secondary institutions to rapidly expand in the mid and late 1960s. (This same demographic bulge is also one part of an explanation for the current high unemployment level - just as universities and colleges were forced to expand to take in the baby boom so now is the labour market being asked to provide more jobs, with relatively unsuccessful results.) But now the baby boor-n children are lea>ing or are already out of the educati!on system, and universities and colleges which scrambled wildly to increase their services and hire faculty (often from the U.S.) are left with large campuses, large -numbers of faculty and support staff and increasingly fewer students. To complicate matters further for education planners they know another “mini” baby boom, the sons and daughters of the first boom, will hit the education system in the 1990s. The second problem is the economy itself. During the economic boom of the 1960s when money was relatively more plentiful,- a society fascinated with accessible education and under pressure from the ranks of its young found it easy to spend money for education.

In the 1980s that will not be.the case. With hundreds of thousands of unemployed in Canada and inflation eating up 10 per cent of every Canadian’s pay cheque each year, education becomes a low spending priority. And with a recession, business turns to government to stimulate the economy, asking for tax cuts and financial assistance to increase profits and a decrease in public spending to lower inflation. With a lower tax base because of both the high cost of maintaining a large sector of the work force on unemployment insurance and the lower corporate taxes because of tax cuts, the government is looking to the public sector to cut spending to make ends meet. During the past few years, that has happened not only- in education funding but in hospitals and other areas of. social services. While institutions as-large as universities can survive a few lean, years, continued funding cuts are devastating. Ontario universities and colleges are perhaps the best indicator of things to come. In 1972 Ontario was the second-ranked of all provinces in per-capita spending on postsecondary education. This year it has dropped to eighth. “The education system is on the verge of eroding now, as it becomes increasingly more difficult to sustain the library collection and keep university’ salaries relative to salaries in other sectors of society.” of That opinion, voiced by University Toronto president James Ham, is echoed by all of Ontario’s post-secondary educators: McMaster University president Arthur Bourns warns that education cutbacks will become even more severe for students if the government does not increase its funding. And he is concerned about the government’s reluctance to‘do so. Bourns is rightly concerned. After a Sept. 7 meeting between the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) and Ontario Premier Bill - Davis, Treasurer Frank Miller, Margaret Birch, Provincial Secretary for Social Development and Education Minister Bette Stephenson, Stephenson said there is no money available to help,out universities in financial trouble this year. I On Sept. 10 the COU, representing all the universities, announced that two universities, Carleton and Laurentian, might be forced to borrow money from private banks to cover budget deficits incurred this year. Stephenson replied that she had no objections to a public university in trouble borrowing from a bank. “Why should I object to them going to the bank? They are autonomous financial

education institutions and -can make whatever financial decisions they think necessary,” she said. Meanwhile Carleton, with- an expected deficit of more than $1 million, and Laurentian, currently more than $500 000 in debt and anticipating a deficit of close to $1 million by the end of the school year, are in serious trouble. “I don’t want to go to the bank” says Laurentian University president Henry Best. “I don’t like deficit financing. It doesn’t make much sense if it is going to be an endless process.” Best says Laurentian is in the process of reducing staff in arts and sciences courses but does not want to allow the quality of services to suffer. At Carleton,administrative vice-president Albert Larose blames the problem on insufficient government funding and a decline in enrolment, especially in the arts. and science faculty. He said the university has tried to save money by cutting back in various areas but had gone as far as it could. Larose says it is impossible to make further cuts without looking at staff firings because 80 per cent of Carleton’s budget goes for salaries and benefits. “I don’t know what the answer is,” he said. “Something’s got -to give. It can’t go on the way it .,is.” At Trent University, which is currently $272,000 in debt,, president Thomas Nind said his university needs money but will not borrow from a bank. McMaster Universiiy is also expecting a budget deficit of $745,000 but the shortfall will be offset for this year by an accumulated $1.9 million surplus from better years. But McMaster is already cuts to make ends meet.



In a brief McMaster presented to the Ontario Council on University Affairs (OCUA) president Bourns said the university will be eliminating 65 faculty positions by 1982 to forestall an expected deficit of nearly $10 million. He added that positions vacated by retirement, resignation or death would be left unfilled and that temporary teaching appointments are being ended. Bourns said spending reductions could mean the elimination of entire programs. John Panabaker, McMaster board of governors chairman, says there is a possibility of “the education system gradually eroding into inconsequential mediocrity.” Education Minister Stephenson denies that the Ontario government has reduced funding to the universities but admits that government grants have not allowed the universities to keep pace with inflation. And when one realizesthat salaries make up the largest section of university budgetsand that every employee hopes to get at least an inflationary wage increase each year the funding problems are seen clearly. If Ontario’s education system is leading the way into the 1980s the universities and colleges of Canada face the gravest crisis in their history. University of Toronto President Ham, whose university this year had the dubious honour of being the first campus to offer a single class to 700 students at a time, says the survival of the post-secondary education system depends on three conditions being fulfilled: - A public reaffirmation education. Clarification of universities in society.

of the value of the




-Willingness of governments to provide reasonably adequate levels of funding to the universities. Whether those conditions can be met is anyone’s guess. But if they are not it’s a sure bet that a post-secondary education degree -in Canada will be worth little more than thepaper it’s printed on.

Bureaucracies hedgeon providing information As we move towards the end of this decade - a visible trend isdevelopingamong the North American electorate to question the right of government bureaucracies to make important policy decisions in complete isolation of the voting populus. As governments become larger and more distant, the electorate is beginning to demand more day to day involvement in, and information about, decisions that greatly effect their lives. In California, this disenchantment resul. ted in the initiation of Proposition 13, which questioned the right of a seemingly self. perpetuating bureaucracy to set tax levels without consulting the voters. In Canada this mistrust ismanifesting itself on two distinct levels. As in California, citizens groups -demanding income and property tax reforms have surfaced from coast to coast and provincial governments have embarked on budget balancing plans partially in response to this trend. The remote nature of federal government and federal agency decision making has also prompted reaction from concerned groups, . primarily those questioning government involvement in the nuclear industry and our financial support of third world dictatorships. This public dissatisfaction with governmental collection of information and the secrecy with which they handle it has not been totally lost on our elected representatives. Before the May federalelection the Liberal Party was working on a very mild form of freedom of information legislation but it never reached the floor of the house of commons. In that May election, one of the major planks in the successful Conservative Party election platform was a promise of strong freedom of information legislation earlyin the ’ fall term aimed at opening up the sprawling-federal bureaucracy. All three major political parties now agree that some sort of legislation is necessary. Federal government agencies such as the Atomic Energy Control Board, the National Energy Board, the Unemployment Insurance Commission, and the Canadian RadioTelevision and Telecommunications Commission, have no consistent rules governing what types of information must be released


to involved organizations and members of . the general public are effectively excluded from access to background information.’ Within government ministries there are poorly defined channels by which the public can gain access to printed material and in the past this lack of definition has been used to cut the flow of information to the press and. the public at large. According to Tim Ralfe, the Privy Council specialist on freedom of information currently on loan to the Conservative Party, the specifics of the proposed legislation have not been ironed out, but it will be based on the principle that all government information should be made available to the public with - -the exception of material in a few protected I areas. The effectiveness of the legislation will of course depend on the types of information ’ that will fall into these protected areas, and there is concern, even among sitting Conservative members, that the legislation being drafted will include too many protected areas by the time it reaches the House of Commons. The most vocal pessimist within the Conservative Party is Gerald Baldwin, a veteran P.C. member who is generally recognized as an expert. in the area of freedom of information. Baldwin has publically voiced his fear that Ottawa’s powerful bureaucracy and some overly protective politicians‘ will render Canada’s first freedom of information legislation, something that he has worked towards for fifteen years, too weak to have any real eff ect on secrecy in the federal government. During, the summer Baldwin drafted his own freedom of information bill in the hope that it would be adopted by or at least influence, his party’s final decision.In Baldwin’s proposed legislation there are only six general areas where exemptions to complete disclosure could be,made: --Cabinet and agency documents which contain opinions and advice (as opposed to factual information) submitted before the formulation of a policy. Such an exemption would only be in effect until the final policy decision is made. --Personal files on individual citizens “including but not limited to medical history, personnel, criminal and employment files,

education records, financial transactions and the indentifying number, symbol or other particular assigned to the individual.” --Commercial and financial information which, if made public would disadvantage a financial enterprise in the. competitive economy, i.e. proposed acquisitions of land and property or in the governmental sphere, changes in zoning laws, etc. --Records, which, if exposed, would have an adverse effect on the enforcement of the law, i.e. disclosing the identity of confidential sources, interfering with an enforcement proceeding or revealing investigative techniques or procedures proposed or currently in use. --Records which, if made public, could be shown would create unacceptable damage to theabilityof thegovernment toconduct its legitimate foreign policy. --Any record relating to present and future tactical military operations by- the armed forces of Canada but not including documents or other records relating to the policies on which those procedures are based. Also information prohibited from disclosure in the national Defense Act and intelligence operations specifically authorized by an appropriate minister.


Within these exemption areas Baldwin is calling for time limits to the confidentiality of information to ensure that all possible information will be accessible. Baldwin also emphasized the need for judicial recourse as a last resort if unclassified-material is being withheld. In general terms he is calling for legislation that will provide access for the public, not loopholes for denying the public’s right to information; a concern shared by other experts in this area. Professor Robert T. Franson, who was engaged by the Law Reform Commission of Canada to do a study into freedom of information at the government agency level, also emphasizes the undesirable effects of extending secrecy into areas where confidentiality is not absolutely essential. In his study paper, entitled “Access to Information - Independent Administrative Agencies”, Franson states that he would recommend “legislation giving any member of the public a right to access to information in agency files...Under such an approach agencies would be required to disclose any information in _their files that could be released without causing harm even though the requester might have no particular interest in the subject matter or inany matter before the agency.” A major factor in the debate about what constitutes beneficial -freedom of information legislation for this-country has been the effect of the United States’ thirteen year-old freedom of information legislation.


For instance, the likelihood of the pending Canadian legislation including pervasive exemptions for information relating to the competitive economy is quite high due to the

problems that the U.S. has had in this area. The prime users of government information made public by the American bill have been large corporations trying to gain insights into the internal operations of their competitors.

But, just as the shortcomings of the American legislation must be avoided, proponents of strong freedom of information legislation in Canada point out that the American legislation left relatively few areas of protected secrecy. Consequently public pressure groups have been able to- force important changes in the marketplace and in government bureaucracy with their new sources of information. The removal of red dye number 2 from supermarket shelves, the exposure and eventual correction’ of dangerous automobile defects, and the exposure and correction of mismanagement in the Federal Housing Administration in the United States might never have taken place if strong freedom of infor’mation laws did not exist. According to Baldwin, the- Conservative government now has an opportunity to institute strong freedom of information !egislation that hasn’t existed for the past decade and might not be here in a few years. Baldwin feels that because the Conservative government made freedom of information one of the cornerstones of their election campaign, and ,because they are new to power, there is a real possibility the pending legislation will affect government-secrecy. “There ‘isn’t the great need to hide potentially embarrassing dislcosures because we are such a new government” says Baldwin and he and other supporters of strong legislation are hoping that will make it possible for the Conservative cabinet and then the House of Commons to support strong legislation as well. The costs of expanding access to government information is of course a factor. Federal ministries and the larger administrative agencies .will likely have to hire extra personnel to handle the paper work involved, but according to Franson’s two year study, cost is no longer thought to be as much of a factor as it was when the Liberal government drew up estimates for their proposed legislation. According to Franson, the smaller ’ government agencies in the United States have been able to absorb the increasedcosts into already existing budget categories and a cost-benefit analysis of the legislation’s effect on the larger agencies has, to his mind, reaffirmed its worth. “The disclosure provisions that we are suggesting” he says “can be expected to add little cost. I believe the benefits to be gained by disclosure-greater understanding of the administrative process and more democratic control of it-far outweigh the cost that will result.”

Deuce charms the crowd

Martin MacPhee There was an event on campus last Thursday, one the likes of which this university is not likely to see for a long time. That event,was the Doucette concert in the Humanities Theatre.

taping of the live section of Doucette’s last album, called “Coming Up Roses”. The crowd stayed in rapturous silence till the last echo died out, a response which Doucette said impressed him very much in a postconcert interview.

I do not usually like concerts. The quality of the music and performance is never as good as an album, which costs the same but, of course, can be enjoyed over and over. Despite this jaundiced view I can clearly say that the performance Doucette gave us was utterly incredible, and no album could ever do it justice.

The show continued with songs from both albums, plus new material destined to be on the third. At one point, Doucette broke to do an interpretation, on guitar, of the various tones of voice that “girlfriends” use. Laughing and joking with the audience, inflaming them comments like “you sound like a thousand people out there”, he raised the audience to a fever pitch, and the sound they produced rivaled the volume of both his amps.

The concert began a little late, with a smallish crowd of about 340 in attendance. The opening act was a Toronto group called The Backbeats. This lively group - aided by excellent guitar solos by Rico Jameson, and a pianist who seemed to be a cross between Buddy Holly and Elvis Costello - had the audience ’ clapping along by their second number. The rather amateurish lighting, including a spot light that served to distract rather than to illuminate the solos (no I’m not sorry about that) didn’t seem to bother the crowd, but the band overstayed their welcome. The audience was hungry for Doucette, but they had. to wait through the intermission to get him. And get him they did! Opening with “Down the Road” from his first album, he sent the audience into a frenzy. Technical difficulties, and a short conversation with the audience led him to use two amps instead of the one he usually uses. As the walls shook to the sounds of “Back Off” the crowd tuned in with a kind of wild rapport. The crowd was rowdy, they wanted it loud and loose, yet they were very responsive to the emotions in the music. This was clearly the case when the Deuce played a song from his upcoming album, dedicated to his friend Shelly Siegal, head of Mushroom Records, who died of cerebral hemorage during the




a smash

Jason Mitchell Bob Segarini, veteran rock’n’roller, leg man, 34year-old juvenile delinquent, old-movie freak and all-round nice guy played to a packed house at the Waterloo Motor Inn on Friday, September 14th. Co-sponsored by the Arts Society and the Federation, the pub drew about 750 people, making it one of the best attended events of its kind in recent years. The audience was almost as interesting as the band; some people came in suits and ties or dresses, some in everyday clothes, some in new wave outfits complete with punk band buttons (God save The Clash!) and glasses. Despitethe many individual differences between members of the audience, as a whole, they were fairly receptive to Segarini and his band. In return Segarini complimented the audience - both on and offstage -for being the best audience the band has had on their recent mini-tour of Ontario universities. He described the band as “kinetic”; they took the energy from the audience and gave it back to them in the form of a better performance. Their three-set, twenty-three song performance seemed to prove him right. Besides playing his entire Gotta Have Pop album, he previewed several songs from his forthcoming Goodbye L.A. L.P., of which “Please, Please, Please” an old Ducks Deluxe tune, was the best. Other songs included two Beatles numbers, a Stones song, “People Are Strange” by The Doors, and a tune from Segarini’s old group, The Wackers, called “Hey Lawdy Lawdy”. During the third set, Segarini’s sense of humour nearly got out of hand. After doing three songs, the band began to play some fairly malicious - but funny - imitations of other groups. These included Elvis Costello,

The Cars (“We steal other people’s riffs/ And sell them back to you” to the tune of “My Best Friend’s Steen

What was incredible about it was the fact that a lot of people didn’t seem to realize it was just in fun; the openings of “Stairway to Heaven” and “Watching the Detectives” got as much applause as they would if they were being done by the original artists, and people flocked to the dance floor. Excuse me if 1 sound a bit stuffy (I was warned ahead of time), but 1 found this as funny as the songs themselves. After finishing this set of parodies, he launched into a ramble on a variety of topics, including drugs (“The band is all out of drugs. Would anyone who has any spare drugs pleasegive them to the fat gentleman with the sweater beside the stage.“), and humour (When 1 was a little boy, my father said to me, he said, ‘Bob, if you don’t have a sense of humour . ...thenfuckoff!‘“)Someof it was funny, some of it was outrageous, and some of it was just plain gross, but as a whole, this partof the set was fairly amusing. All in all, the evening was fairly successful and fun for all of those involved.


While it may be pointless to bring this up again, it would certainly be helpful to rearrange the seating at the Waterloo Motor Inn so that the dance floor is at the back, not in front of the stage. For those people who couldn’t dance because the floor was full, or didn’t want to, it was impossible to see the band when the dance floor was full. As the dance floor was full from about two-thirds of the way through the first set to the end of the show, a lot of people didn’t get to see much; that was unfortunate. Hopefully this will be rectified before the next pub.

The climax of the show came where it should, at the end, with an earth-shattering rendition of his fantastic Single “Mama Let Him Play”, paying tribute to some of hisearly influences. He merged it into a rendition of “Hey Jude”, driving the audience wild, earning him a ten minute standing ovation, with theaudience shouring“Doo-cette, Doocette!” Returning and throwing a bouquet of flowers into the audience, he gave another single from The Deuce Is Loose, “Run Buddy Run” (The Bud was his first manager) and finished up with “Long Tall Sally”. After the concert, Doucette had nothing but praise for the audience and their responsiveness. The Deuce is just winding up a long road tour through the States and Canada and said this was the best concert he’s played. He also liked playing again on his home turf. When he was eleven, he played at Bingeman of all places, in a group called the Reefers, where he remembers “watching the bikers beating each other !” and “getting stoned on the fumes”; well times haven’t changed, only the participants.

The Persistence of Vision, John Varley. Sturgeon’s law tells us that 90% of everything is crud. That means that 90% of the movies we watch, the courses we take, the people we meet, and the books we read are -so bad that they don’t merit our attention. If this is true then one may watching rqasonably ask, why bother movies, taking courses, meeting people or reading books. The answer comes quickly and clearly: because the meritous 10% of everything contains items like this book, John Varley’s first collection of short stories.

oxygen Varley and we

I haven’t talked about all the good things in this book. “Air Raid” is a brutal tale about a group of people who use a time portal to save victims of airplane crashes before they crash. In its realistic use of future idioms, it is, again, thoroughly convincing. “In the Hall of the Martian Kings” shows us some positive aspects of that much maligned planet, Mars. “Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance” presents a new kind of symbiotic art form.

If you are not in the habit of reading science fiction magazines, you probably did not notice Varley’s debut four years ago, or the truly satisfying stories that he has been producing since then. The Persistence of Vision contains nine of these magazine pieces, and affords you the opportunity to experience some of the riches you’ve missed out on.

There is more, nine stories in all. If you’ve seen Star Wars, and suffered through an episode of Battlestar Galactica, and been left wondering, “Is that science fiction?” you could do no better than read this book and discover what sci-fi, in the hands of a capable practitioner, can really do.

What makes Varley good? His material is not new. His themes and ideas are characteristic of the seventies: cloning, memory“ recording, sex“changes, societies in upheaval. Significantly, you will find few robots or spaceships in these stories. But like Heinlein before him, Varley has taken the stock features of current science fiction, and shown us the wonders inherent wonders which have been in them, inadequately revealed or overlooked altogether. Heinlein used slidewalks to show us labour unrest in “The Roads Must ‘Roll.” Varley uses memory recording to show us a new kind of murder in “The Phantom of Kansas.” Heinlein took spaceships and showed us the society occupying one of them in “Orphans of the Sky.” Varley takes cloning and shows a society build around it in “Overdrawn at the Memory Bank.”

“May I suggest that in today’s group-therapy session all work on our contact with reality”

The comparison with Heinlein is apt, because Varley, while clearly working within the sci fi idiom, has emerged with a voice and viewpoint all his own. His style,w bile not breezy or slick, will have you rapidly turning pages and moving on to the next story with scarcely a pause to catch your breath. His viewpoint is optimistic. To Varley the universe is a friendly place, not a harsh adversary. Even when his characters run into life-threatening problems on Mercury (“Retrograde Summer”) or Venus (“In the Bowl”) there is a society and an environment which is helpful and benign and which will get them out of their troubles. They are never alone. There is no room for defeatism or despair in Varley’s stories. Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than in the title story of this book. It is about a wanderer in a near future earth who stumbles upon a colony of adults who have been blind and deaf since birth. Varley shows us how they build and run their colony and how they admit the wanderer, teaching him their ways and their viewpoint. It is an incredible technical achievement to have the reader believing that the sighted protagonist is the only handicapped character in the story, but Varley does it, and at the same time shows us that, though isolated, he will never be alone. This one story is well worth the price of admission for ) its affirmation of humanity and its convincing detail. Which brings me to a basic point. How does Varley convince us of his visions? Like any good writer he uses detail. When he describes the process of memory recording, there is scarcely a word of double-talk, and you are convinced he knows exactly how the process works. When we are treated to a weather symphony in “The Phantom of Kansas,” we feel he has captured the very essence of this (so far) non-existent art form, because he tells us how it is done. This strict adherence to getting the details right allows us to read this sentence on page 63 without even blinking: “The main trouble you’ll have is adjusting to not breathing.” In lesser hands those words would elicit

The house on opening night was surprisingly empty for a comedy which has something to please everyone. The play has good plot development and lots of laughs especially in t+ second act. It is a well produced, fun, and well worth seeing. The small cast of eight provides some excellent characterizations. Unfortunately some weaker portrayals emerge to spoil some of the funny lines which demand precise execution. The first act introduces a convuled interplay of plots. Several characters independently engage the services of a hit man with the intention of killing one another. Only the hit man and the local funeral director--much to their delight--are aware of theextent of the nefarious plottings. In the second act, carefully executed jokes and visual pranks had everyone in the audience roaring. The plot thickens as more persons hire the hitman to kill more people. Part of the farce is that the play is taking place in a hospital for the terminally ill. After all who would want to kill someone who’s dying anyway? In addition, illicit romances, drugs,a crosswalk sign and a vast array of murder devices create hilarious situations. Steve Hull as the hitman characterized his role exceptionally well and continually had the audience in stitches. Jim Gardner drew laughs with his outrageous actions as a conceited lady’s man who is the only one who suspects that a hitman is after him. Bernie


Roehl also shines as an obnoxious, insensitive slob who manages to irritate many of the others in the play, especially his brother-in-law, an embezzler. The male nurse, who is also a bookie, seems to be let in on all the schemes to murder persons and keeps referring them to his “‘friend” the hitman. In the third act, the schemes.are all revealed and romances untangled. At one point, though, it looks as if most of the characters are going to die, but remember this is a comedy; everyone must survive! Overall the play seems to be a far more serious theatrical production than FASS’ zany plays. The play tends towards professionalism with a believable plot, as opposed to the typical impossible situations created by ridiculous characters. This creates a good comedy but the necessary plot development interferes with the continuity of hilarious situations, expecially in the first and last acts. The first act in particular, lacks the flow and timing that is present in the rest of the play. Ironically, it was this act which had been re-written since the June production with the intention of spicing it up. Whether or not the ’ fault lies with the job of re-writing or with the over-acting on the part of the financier or hospital directer, the production does not really get into gear until act two. I would still recommend that “The Finishing Touch” be ‘seen. It plays in the Theatre of the Arts at 8 pmeach evening until _ September 22.


Stratford’s Lori

Moor overdoes


Othello is a strange, wild, stormy play, full of passion, fury, sudden changes in mood. It can easily degenerate to melodrama if overplayed. Unfortunately, that’s just what does happen with the Stratford Festival’s production of Ofhello-only at times, but often enough to destroy most of the tragedy and pathos for the audience. ’ The production haseverythinggoingforit, marvellous -text, beautiful costumes, and three of Stratford’s best actors, Domini Blythe, Nicholas Pennell and Alan Scarfe, in the starring roles. But there’safalse note that throws everything off. Alan Scarfe as Othello the Moor, painted and dressed to kill, sports a strange accent which sounds more Italian than Moorish. Othello is referred to as “a noble moor of Venice”, but still...Scarfe’s performance has some convincing moments, such as the scene where Iago first sows doubt in Othello’s mind about Desdemona’s fidelity and the bedroom scene where he murders her, but in other spots is too full of blustering and arm-waving to win sympathy or even pity. Scarfe is constantly upstaged by Nicholas Pennell as Iago, a bit of surprise casting that works spectacularly well. There’s a tendency to imagine Iago as dark, ugly, perhaps misshapen. Pennell, blond and extremely good-looking, suggests that Iago’s misshapeness is all inward, an ugliness of soul rather than of body, even more sinister since it cannot be seen. People of Shakespeare’s time believed tbaf the beautiful were good and the ugly were evil-Pennell’s Iago is more subtle and more modern, showing that beauty, too, can be a disguise. The role of Iago is a choice one, allowing the actor to play several roles at once as Iago


himself does--the loyal friend, the good husband, the amusing companion, the unwilling bearer of evil tidings. Pennell seems to be having the time of his life slipping chameleon-like in and out of all these disguises. His Iago is a master con man, by turns bawdy and delicate; his ruse todeceive Othello, ruin the Moor’s life and that of Cassio, whom he imagines to be his rival, is a work of art, although a warped, twisted one. Scarfe seems to flounder along behind Pennell, never quite matching his control and self-assurance. Frances Hyland’s direction, like Scarfe’s performance, lacks restraint: there is a lot of arm-waving, too much wailing, and an irritating emphasis on the word “honest” when used to describe Iago. That particular bit of irony wears thin very quickly but is often repeated, always heavily stressed. Othello is one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, and one of the most popular. It’s a shame that it hasn’t been done justice to in this procution, when the Festival has the money, the actors, and the technicians to make it possible. Only the vision was lacking here, but you can’t have a work of art without that vision. Domini Blythe is a lovely Desdemona, although at times more passive than the text suggests; there is little sign of the charm and wit with which Othello, Iago and Cassio credit her. The “willow” scene with Emilia, her maid, just before her death, is one of the few really touching moments of the play. . Stephen Russell (looking a lot like Michael York) as Cassio, whom Othello imagines to be his wife’s lover, Barbara Budd as Emilia, Iago’s wife and unwitting accomplice, and Barbara Maczka as Bianca, a courtesan, are particularly strong in secondary and minor roles.

When you have lines from the hitman such as, “Does he (the victim) use bubblebath?” When answered yes, he sighsand says, “Then that won’t work-it kills the piranha” and the audience roars (and not necessarily at just that line-it’s the cumulation of humour which does it) you know you havea winner.

I had heard a lot about Max Mou’se and the Gorillas, but had never seen them before, so I had a lot of questions for Joe, who has seen them 10 or 12 times. He told me that if Joe Jackson had come from the hills near Peterborough, he would be Max Mouse. I didn’t have any idea what he meant by that, but it did sound interesting. Even after the show was over I couldn’t understand what Joe had meant. Max Mouse and the Gorillas reminded me (in appearance) more of a bluegrass band-on acid. That’s an unusual impression to get, but then MMTG is not too usual. Even the names of the members reflect this strangeness: Art Nouveau on Hammond organ and mellotron, J. P. and-a-half Hovercraft on outerspace bass, Bobo Lewis, who was announcedasbeingfromthe Congo,ondrums, Ezra Kilo on Hawaiian guitar, and of course Max Mouse on guitar and most lead vocals. The music they played was no easier to figure out’. Right in the middle of “There’s a Riot Goin’ On” Ezra played the kind of pedal

steel run that you would expect to hear on a Conway Twitty album. Another tune, “Do The Poodle” was written as a eulogy to one Fifi, who met an untimely end under a truck in front of the Ontario f\/Iotor League in Oshawa. The chorus consisted of Art, J. P. and Max howling, yelping and making other assorted canine noises. Pretty absurd, but all very entertaining, which is the name of the game. There was one aspect of the performance that has to be seen to be believed - the way that Ezra pjayed that pedal steel. Ihave never seen anyone play the instrument like that. He had all of the guitar solos, and he produced more sounds than most guitarists can get on the six-string variety. He played blues, country, rock-a-billy and every type of rock guitar. What really amazed me was the Hendrix-influenced bits, complete with controlled overtones and distortion. If you ever get a chance to see this band. don’t turn it down. It was pne of the more entertaining shows, overall, that I have seen in a while.

“We sputtered and spun but in the main we played 1 well both offensively and defensively,“. said Wally Delahey, the Head Coach of the University of Waterloo Warriors. “We got good production out of both our running and passing It was nice to see that balance. However, we’ll have to become more consistent in our future games if we expect to do well this season. “We controlled the ball very well at times but at other times we became sloppy and had to give up the ball. We’ll work to correct that part of our game,” said Delahey. In Saturday’s game against McMaster, the Warriors came out on top by a score of 40-6. As coach Delahey mentioned, the * offense was spread fairly evenly between running and passing. The Warriors gained 260 yards on the ground and 222 yards through the air. “Wayne Robinson rushed for 146 yards and Joe Alves had 96 yards. Both players had runs of 56 yards for touchdowns. “Our passing percentage wasn’t that great (the Warriors hit on 7 for 17) but when we needed the big play, we got it with our passe-s. We had a 68 yard completion to Bill Boug and a 77 yard completion to Gord Grace. “Three of our passes were good for touchdowns. Larry D’Andrea, Gord Grace and Mike Smeltzer scored on pass receptions.

Intercollegiate Volleyball Tryouts for Athena volleyball are very competitive this year, says co.ach Pat Davis. The team will be chosen this week. Davis sees a minimum of seven returning players on this year’s team. The returnees have a lot of confidence, and with skilled freshmen coming in, it should be an exciting team. Jan Ostrom, 3rd year Kin student, will be changing positions from power-hitter to setter. She also piayed for the Provincial Winter Games team which represented Ontario at the Canada Games. Also moving to setter from corner hitter, is Lorie Freeman at 5’9”. Last year she pla yed as a freshman. Deanie LaChance 5'8" and Maria Kasch 5'11", are both returning for their second year as centre blockers. Kasch has greatly improved her skills over the summer, largely due to her teaching experience at a volleyball camp. Other returnees trying out include Paula Purdon 5’9”, Carolyn Aldwinckle (a provincial player last year), Denise Schnider 5'8", and Val WilBolenback is a liams 5’9”. Brenda transfer student from Lakehead U. She originates from the Kenora area. Davis anticipates two new sixfooters will join her squad - Marnie McMahan? a sophomore and Karen McAlister a freshman. Carolyn Collins of Oshawa, andPattiGowerfrom fairly skilled Trenton are both freshmen who are also expected to i oin. I

As Davis sees it, the big opposition will be York University and the University of Ottawa. Ottawa has augmented their team with two national players and two junior national players. York, who won the OWIAA championships last year, are still as strong or stronger this season. Davis isn’t making any predictions as to how her team will perform. Waterloo is playing in Tier 1 of a two tier system. There are six teams in the top, including UW, and 9 in the second tier. Of these 15 teams, only one representative is sent to the CIAU championships. As the Athenas are playing in a strong and competitive league, it is very difficult for them to get out of the OWIAA into the Nationals. The first home contest is to be held in October or early November, and will be announced well in advance. November 13 at 8:00 pm, the Athenas meet Western for their first home league game.

Waterpolo The UW waterpolo team began tryouts last week, and are looking good already. Despite the loss of a senior player, the team should perform even better than last season. They have added four offensive players and an impressive rookie goalie to their roster. The final team will be announced prior to October 13. In his second year as coach, Lou Wagner is hoping for a successful season. He has experience as a member of the championchip provincial team in Hungary, and also of the McGill University team. Hungary is very strong at the international level, and many national teains are led by Hungarian coaches. The league structure involves a series of tournaments played every Saturday. The top three. teams from the East, and_ from the West meet in the playoffs Nov. 24 at the University of Toronto. Ontario has the only official intercollegiate league in Can-

The Rugby Warriors suffered their first loss of the season against Forest City of London on Sunday. In this exhibition game, the side showed.a strong running game but were still on the losing end of the 15-14 score. Wally Urbanski scored the first try after an exciting 80 yard run. Mike Lasage, rookie scrumhalf touched the ball down after picking it up from a five yard strum. The final try was scored by Mike Peevers, a fine young back from Barrie. Steve Diebert, a Warrior alumni, scored for Forest City on a number eight take from a five yard strum. The Warriors open the regular season against Queens on Saturday at Columbia fields. Last year Queens were undefeated on their way to the league championships. The battle for first place could be between Waterloo and Queens. This is an important game for the Warriors as it will show where they stand against the other sides. Come out and support your Warriors on Saturday. Soccer

The University of Waterloo Warriors came as close as they could to winning the Laurentian Invitational last weekend. The Warriors started out with a 3-1 win over their OUAA rivals, the University of Toronto. In the championship game of the four-team tournament, the Warriors met the very strong Laurentian team. The score of the final game was O-O. It was still scoreless after two overtime periods. The penalty kicks came next. In the penalty kick session, the Warriors lost by one goal, 5-4. “We fel that we played very well,” said Ron Cooper, the Head Coach of the UW Soccer Warriors. “Laurentian has a very strong team and for all intents and purposes, weplayedthem to a stand-still. It was an exciting game.” In refering to the strength of the Laurentian team Cooper said, “They have gour members of Canada’s National Junior Team, one of whomis Lois Nagy. Nagy was the leading scorer for Canada in the World Junior Championship which was recently held in Japan. We held Nagy to one shot on goal. Laurentian also has some out-of-country . players who were members of their national junior teams.-They have a very powerful team.” Scorers for the Warriors in the game against the University of Toronto were Mike Mohan, Mike Wigmore and Roland Mueller. Local soccer fans will have an opportunity -to see the Lauqe.ntian Voyageurs when they pay a visit to UW to play their first league game of the OUAA season. Actually it will be Laurentian’s second league game but the first for the Warriors. The rematch will take place this coming Sunday, September 23,1979. The game will be played in Kitchener’s Woodside park. Starting time will be 1:OO pm.

B DO you participate? Chances are that you do. The Intramural Program at Waterloo has one of the highest rates of participation of any university in this country, if not the highest. That’s not the only thing UW has to boast about. Waterloo is an innovator in the field. Where was innertube waterpolo first tried? What about ball hockey? Other institutions in Canada and the U.S. look to UW for help and advice in starting their own intramural programmes. Pete Hopkins, men’s Intramural Director, says this programme is successful here, but it may not be at another university. Each community has their own need and facilities. The key is not to copy, but to innovate. The goal of a programme must be to play for fun, to participate, and to have a good time. Hopkins himself has converted fro,m a competitive jock to a participation and enjoyment freak. Student participation and involvement are essential to the success of any IM programme.


At Waterloo the IM pro. gramme was initiated in’68 and has taken off since then. Over 7,000 students per week are involved at some level. This figure can be broken down into instructional (l,OOO/week), recreational (1,500), clubs (900) and competitive (1820% of the student population). The numbers involved individually in jogging, swimming, etc., are unmeasurable. The programme . employs over 600 students in various capacities. These include referees, league conveners, lifeguards, instructors, and officials. One of the truly unique features of the IM program,

according to Sally Kemp, women’s Intramural Director, is that by far the majority of IM participants are involved in co-ed activities (clubs, instructional activities and some recreational programs). Students are also involved in rule and policy decisions. The Men’s and Women’s Intramural Athletic Councils (MIAC and WIAC) are a controlling factor in the IM program. They ensure that the goals and philosophy of intramurals ‘are being met. MIAC and WIAC operate separately, but have joint meetings from time to time to discuss mutual concerns. Hopkins and Kemp act as resource people, but do not have a vote on council. One example of their actions is the mandatory use of face masks for men’s ice hockey. This decision was based on the results of a study conducted by a UW student. The study concluded that a very high percentage of the facial injuries that occurred last season could have been avoided if the players had been wearing face masks. Looking for a playing partner? The IM department has set up a partners board in the PAC. If you need a partner for squash, tennis or racquet-ball, just check the Partners Board. Hopkins sees the IM programme as a part of the educational process. Students learn to play for fun and enjoyment, rather than to win. Intramurals offer a much greater opportunity for participation than competitive teams and sports on the intercollegiate level. Hopkins’ major obstacle these days is to accommodate all students and teams that want to participate so who was talking about lack of student involvement on campus?

B Personal fitness testing is now available on campus to all students, staff, and faculty. Campus Health Promotion operates out of Health Services under the direction of Bruce Moran, a graduate of Kinesiology. The program’s major purpose is to promote fitness and health awareness on campus. Although there is a fee of $10 for the service, and this may seem a little high, Moran assures us that many places charge much more for the same type of evaluation. This summer the testing was run as a pilot project. Moran rated it as being a .highly successful venture. He evaluated the fitness levels of 170 individuals. The program now operates on a full-time basis. The evaluation itself consists of a series of tests which determine blood

cholesterol and triglyceride levels (this part is optional), flexibility, body fat composition, muscular strength, lung capacity and efficiency and cardiovascular fitness. A computer analysis of present lifestyle habits is also available. The testee is presented with a fitness profile manual, detailing his or her present level of fitness. It includes a personal exercise prescription designed on the basis of the performance in the evaluation. The manual can also be used to compare fitness improvement in future testing. Campus Health Promotion will be expanding into the areas of injury prevention at some future date. They hope to introduce jogging clinic; and pre-ski season fitness clinics. For more information, call Bruce Moran, in Health Services at ext. 3541.




Women’s teams organize Tammy Horne Another year of women’s varsity sports has begun. UW’s Athena teams are now holding organizational meetings and/or tryouts. A list of coaches and meeting times is posted on the bulletin board in the women’s locker room. If you are considering trying out for a varsity team, and would like to meet the coach and have a chat with him/her, ask the PAC receptionist in the Athletic Department Office (in Red North) where to find the coach. Many of our female athletes say that it is a good idea to start training now for your sport. Practices for most teams are two hours a day, fiire days a week, and coaches expect the athletes to work hard for the full length of each practice. Even though playing a varsity sport requires a time commitment and hard work, many positive experiences can be gained The from participating.
