over 120 fatuity members, staff members and Teaching Assistants were layed off at Waterloo alone. Although most fees are only increasing by 7.5%, Waterloo students will be paying 105% of the formula fee. OSAP is not adequate to meet the needs of today’s students. ‘And nobody in the education b%reaucracy is going to do anything about it. On March 27, OFS is sponsoring a rally at Queen’s Park. Waterloo students should plan on attending because: 1) it will be one more method of making the public aware of student issues; 2) it will show the politicians that students are serious in their demands (which is very important in a potential election year: 3)it will show solidarity with students on campuses across Oritario, and; 4) it will show that students at the University of Waterloo are concerned about the funding of post-secondary education. This mass action by no means stands albne. OFS is planning on holding a press conference< before the rally in order to make the commercial media more aware of the issues. If little comes of the confrontation, plans for a province-wide fee hike strike will be discussed at the next OFS conference. The organization is beginning to prov_e that it is worthy of student support(a question which has, at times, been in doubt), SO let’s support it. Sign up sheets are in the Federation office (CC235).

At ‘the mee’tcng with Bette Stephenson held on Monday, March 19, t’he Minister of Education/ and Colleg& and Universities was directly asked whsther the 7.5% increase in tuitibn feeswould be rolled back pending an acessability study, autonomous fees would be removed and the Ontario Student Assi@ance.Programme would be.changed. The first two request,s wetie rejected out of hand by the Minister, who, while stating that the third would -occur, pointed out that OS‘AP changes would not be as great as the Ontario Federation of , Students; had requested. I’t must be obvious to students that neither the Minister nor the Ministry are willing to listen to their concerns over the funding of ppst-secondary education. A petition which was sighed by over four thousand students ‘at the University of Waterloo was calmly accepted by the Minister and fbrgotten. Other petitions have similarly failed, Neither are we able to go to our Administration for aid. Although the Senate, e body made up of people intimately conpeLted with the university, recommended that Waterloo not take . advantage of the autonbmous fee, the Board of Governors, a body made up largely of people not a part of the university, decided to. President Burt Matthews, although quite in favour of the concept of universal accessability, nonetheless voted in favour of using the/ autonomous fed at a meeting .- of Council - of- Ontario Universities (COU) _-- the _ --__ It se&s a-little trite and cliched, Iknow,but the students must begin to act.

Episode with pie rude and unfortunate The Editor,. In regard to the visit df Dr. Bette Stephenson to our campus on March 17, I would like to express sdme thoughts which will, I hope, reflect the majorit-y of students at this university. While it seems that most students disagree with Dr. Stephenson and her views concerning university education, it was good to see that Monday’s audience almost unanimously disagreed with the actions of one person in the audience. The person who threw the pie in Dr. Stephenson’s face showed an amazing lack of responsi.bility and/or maturity. If he had comments to make, he should have done so in an appropriate fashion. Apart from any personal satisfaction he received, he accomplished little else but to embarrass Dr. Stephenson and the university. It is clear many other students -have this opinion, as it was expressed in strong applause supportingthe apology of the moderator, our Federation vice-president. There were many opinions expressed during the question period:It is unfortunate many of them Fepeated the same arguments, and it is also unfortunate that many people were very rude in expressing their opinions to the minister. She is after all, a person, and though she seemed used to receiving it, the verbal abuse was certainly unnecessary. I do not feel that a fee hike strike is the best way to oppose the increases which have been imposed, and I hope students will think carefully before supporting this venture. Rob Skirving 2nd year Math

The principle of representation

The Editor, A very grave situation arose at the Federation meeting of March 17, one which leads me to wonder about the ethics of some Councillors‘. At that meeting, I was representing my consitutents from Math Co-op as usual. During the course of discussion on the motion concerning the Fee Hike Strike, I raised the point that I would have to abstain for a very important reason: the voice of niy constituency. In the past t&o weeks, I have made an attempt to talk to as many Math Co-op students as I could concerning the matter. I do realize that the small number I did converse with pales beside the questionnaire carried out

in the Engineering faculty,#something I would not mind seeing in the Math faculty. However, when I did talk to the people that I represent, they gave mk an obvious mandate. They were split 50-50. When the point was raisdd in Council, I was attacked by several other Representatives on the matter. I thank the Couticillors from Engineering and anyone else at that meeting that still stood up for the principle of represbntative democratic government, which is what the Federation of Students should be an example of. I The fact that more than one member agreed that I should vote my principles as opposed to those of my constituents- is appalling. I am shocked by this revelation atid wonder just who these people do represent. They should be representing their faculties and the students within them, not their own opinion$. I resent any implication that I do not support the Fee Hike Strike. I have proven in print just wheref stand on the issue. I realize that many students agree with the idea and that many don’t. But, as a representative of my constituents to the,Federation, I must accede to the wishes of the majority of them, while protecting the minority of theti.. Thig is why I vofed the way I did. Mark D’Gabriel Math Co-op Representative P.S. If any of my constituents me, I am at their disposal.

Turnkeys: terrific - group of people The Editor, since the beginning of my attendance at the University of Waterloo, (last September), I have had several encounters with a terrific group of people, who haunt the Campus Centre. I am referring, of course, to the turnkeys. These selfless individuals are always available to all students who require any kind of assistance. I do not propose that they are fountains of wisdom, but if they don’t know the ‘answer to your question, they can generally refer you to someone that does. Never, in any of my brief encounters with these people, have I ever felt snubbecl, or been rudely treated.‘They are always pleasant and helpful. The point of this letter is to thank the turnkeys for a tremendous job, an@all the help they have afforded &e in the past, and wiil continue to afford me, and my fellow students, in the future.

News -


Stephenson On Monday, March 17, Bette Stephenson, Minister of Education and Colleges and Universities, spoke to approximately 500 students in the Theatre of the Arts. Her visit to Waterloo was accompanied by demonstrations by both those in favour of a fee hike strike and those against. Before Stephenson arrived, many members of the Ad Hoc Committee for a Fee Hike Strike picketed the Theatre of the Arts, carrying signs and shouting: “No way, we won’t pay!” The Engineering Society played in the same hall in which the Ad Hoc Committee protested, occasionally drowning its members out. Prior to Stephenson’s introduction, Neil Freeman, President of the Federation of Students, spoke to the incoming crowd, which responded enthusiastically. When he mentioned the possibility of a fee hike strike, the audience cheered; when he mentioned underfunding, it loudly booed. The only exception was a small group in the back shouting slogans which supported Stephenson, such as: “Bette, Bette, she’s our man! If she can’t do it, no one can!” Freeman also denounced the Ad Hoc Committee, stating that it was not sanctioned by the Federation of Students. He left the podium accompanied by loud cheering. Karen Dubinski, Vice Chairperson of the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS), also spoke briefly. Her mainconcern was the fee increase; pointing out that student wages had not kept up with inflation, Dubinski exhorted UW students to \ take action. After a short period of uncertainty as to the whereabouts of the Minister, Wim Simonis, Vice-President of the Federation and chairperson of the proceedings, ushered her onto the stage. She hadn’t been on for more than a minute, giving the brief talk which she gave at the University of Western Ontario, the University of Toronto and other universities and colleges _’ which she has attended, before a student ran onto the stage, pushed apieinherface and ran off again. The student! Sam Wagar, ’ was taken into custody by Campus Security, who handed him over to the Waterloo Regional Police. Stephenson did not wish to press charges, and Wagar was subsequently released. Shortly after the incident, a pamphlet was distributed throughout the audience. It depicted a tombstone on which the words “Fee Hikes” had been engraved and on which a pie, with a great splat, had been thrown. The text read: “The Central Committee of the Anarchist Party of Canada (Grouch-Marxist) - Waterloo Branch hereby declairs Bette Stevenson and the Government of Ontario null and void.” Underneath the tombstone were the words: “Rest in Pie”. Stephenson, calmly wiping the pie from her face, continued speaking. Sh.e justified the tuition increase by stating that $839.5 million had been allocated to education in Ontario and that



-gets a pie from tune

much of that figure went to post-secondary education; that students nbw only paid 15% of the cost of their education, whereas, at the beginning of the decade, they paid close to 20%; that the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) insisted on fee autonomy, and that the Ontario Student Assistance Programme (OSAP) would cover the increase. Before opening discussion, Simonis apologized to the Minister for having had a pie thrown at her. The first questioner asked Stephenson whether the three points on the recent Federation referendum would be adopted by the Ministry. She stated that, while rolling back the fee increases pending an accessibility study and ending autonomous fees were out of the question, changes in OSAP were forthcoming. Stephenson said that an announcement on the OSAP changes would be made within two weeks, and that the living allowance was definitely rising from the present rate of $65 per week, although it wasn’t likely that it would rise to $90 per week, the amount which OFS felt was‘ necessary to bring students above the poverty line. She once again insisted that the increase in the amount of funding to OSAP would cover the increase in tuition fees, pointing out that the $3.3 million allocation only covered the 7.5% increase and

that the Ministry could not know how much money would be needed to cover the autonomous fee until it was actually levied by each university. When it was pointed out that, last year at the university, 124 positions had been laid off, including 12 profs and many Teaching Assistants and support staff, Stephenson remained quiet. Upon being accused of evading the issue, Stephenson told students: “I am simply trying to tell you

increases would insure that Waterloo’s fees remain above the formula fee. Wim Simonis had little to add, except that representatives should not be personally voting in favour of the fee hike strike, but should consider the fact that students should be given the chance to participate. Peter Sawras, one of three representatives from the faculty of Engineering, informed Councillors of a survey taken in his faculty on the subject of a fee hike strike. Of approximately 1200 first, second and third year engineering undergraduates, 589 (roughly 50%) answered the seven question survey, giving direction to the engineering representatives for the vote. The result showed that only 14.94% of those who responded to the survey stated that’tliey would participate in a Federation organized fee hike strike while 79.63% stated that they would not. However, 35.48% voted in favour of holding the fee hike strike. Coupled with a vote of 57.05% against holding the strike, the engineering representatives announced that they felt that two of them had to vote against the strike while one had to vote for it. Peter Hoy, who was ratified at the meeting as Chairman of the Board of External Relations, stated that the Minister has no intention of changing the fees, and that, whereas Waterloo did not use the full extent of fee autonomy this year, they could use it fully (18%) next year, justifying the drastic increase of next year by this year’s lack of such an increase. He insisted

There was some doubt as to whether this meeting, at which the fate of the fee hike strike wa’s to be decided, would get staTted because, as usual, quorum was difficult to achieve (the meeting was to have started at 7pm, but was changed when it was learned that the Senate planned on meeting that same night at 7:30). After a half hour of waiting, the meeting was finally able te begin. The major order of business was the motion to holdafeehike strike in September of 1980. Neil Freeman, President, and Wim Simonis, Vice President of the Federation of Students, were mover and seconder of the motion which, in part, read: “Whereas the Ministry of Colleges and Universities and our University President have rejected the petition signed by 4,000 students at theuniversity of Waterloo...BE IT RESOLVED that the Federation of Students at the University of Waterloo engage in a fee-hike strike in September 1980.” In introducing the measure, Freeman stated that it was definitely a “confrontation act” and an “expression of dissatisfaction” with the Ministry, the Minister, and the Administration of the University. He pointed out that the fee hike strike was not compulsory, but that those who wanted to take part in it should be given the opportunity to do so. Freeman stated that students at Waterloo already paid 105% of the formula fee, and that the fee

that action must be taken bothat that meeting and in the future. ViceKaren Dubinski, Chairperson of the Ontario Federation of Students, told Councillors that it was unlikely that other shcobls would take fee hike strike action because students at some universities have to pay their fees at the beginning of the summer, and because they aren’t well enough organized. She suggested that universities could split their fees, paying only half during the first term and deciding for the second Mark D’Gabriel, representing the faculty of mathematics, stated that he had taken an informal survey which touched about two hundred of his constituents and that the opinion was split as to whether to hold the strike. He announced that, in keeping with these facts, he would be forced to abstain, even though he had, in print, supported the fee hike strike. ’ A number of Councillors expressed the opinion that D’Gabriel should vote in favour despite the fact that he had no clear mandate from his constituents. After the meeting, D’Gabriel expressed extreme anger at the Councillors who suggested this, stating that it was dangerously not in keeping with democratic principles. It was pointed out during the discussion that there was the possibility of the Administration withholding OSAP cheques from those who participated in the strike. Hoy stated that he had spoken to a lawyer on the subject, and that

herself as a visa student, said that there were not enough foreign students to displace Canadians and that foreign students could bring money into the economy. She went on to ask why they should have to pay double what Canadian students pay. Stephenson replied that the taxpayers of this province were paying a lot of money for education, and that Ontario students should be a priority; that students from other areas are partially supported by the

On Saturday, March 15, the UW Engineers held their fourth annual Bus Push for Big Sisters. Over one hundred engineers, nurses, celebrities, and Big & Little Sisters helped pull KW Transit Bus no. 765 from the Engineering 1 cul-de-sac, along University Ave. and King St., to Market Square. Plummers were pledged on a per-kilometre basis; and donations were collected aiong the route. With one-third of the pledge sheets in, the sponsorship tally was $2300.00, along with $250 collected along the route from bystanders, and $309 over the past few weeks from donations received downtown and at shopping .malls. Brad McKay, in 4B Systems Design, was the coordinator of the bus push, and estimated this year’s Bus Push will riase about $5,000. The bus started moving at lo:36 a.m. A 2% inch thick rope, about 259feet long, was attached to the front of the bus. Although the bus hadits motor running, the driver’s was to provide purpose brakes and steering only; the bus moved under sheer muscle power alone. Leading the procession was a police escort, followed by the black-robed bearers of the Engineering mascot The Rigid Tool, a five-foot wrench. The Plummers Hardhat Band was next, providing music for the parade: trumpet, trombone, tuba, french horn, clarinet, bass drum, snare drum, chimes...and bagpipes. (UW by the way has the only

Engineering band with bagpipes). The bus had the next place in the ‘*parade” with 102 people, about 65 of which were plummers pulling it. Others helping out were nurses from Conestoga College, Big and Little Sisters, Waterloo Mayor Marjorie Carroll, Waterloo MP Walter McLean, and Kitchener MP Peter Lang. The mood of the bus push, (a misnomer, as the bus was pulled) was festive, with the ha_nd playing and onlookers watching what was going on. Eyebrows were raised in downtown Kitchener by the spectacle of one hundred people pulling a bus and “The Plummer’s singing Hymn.” --~ -The bus arrived at Market Square at approximately 12:15. The Push was followed by lunch at the YWCA and a tour of Labbatts. Mayor Carroll. stated that she has “been there every year for the. Bus Push. It’s always lots of fun, and the Engineers do a great job. It’s great that students are doing somefhing for the community.” 1’ Waterloo MP Walter McLean echoed her sentiment, saying that “The Engineers are to be complimented. When I was in University, the Engineers were visible and vocal, but not as constructive in energy. Having the Engineers here doing this for Big Sisters shows heart.” Peter Lang, MP for Kitchener, said that he enjoyed himself on the Bus Push. “It’s for a.good cause, and it’s a great idea. People on the

street were looking at us with their jaws dropped. It was fun.” Big Sisters have been in Kitchener-Waterloo since 1971. The ExecutiveDirector of Big Sisters, Marilyn Markow, thinks that the Engineers are a great help to the organization. “They helped us relocate when wechanged offices,*’ she said. “The Bus Push is a great idea to raise money, and it increases public awareness of us.” Big Sisters take a training course, and make a commitment for one year to see their Little Sister a few hours a week. There are presently 126 pairs of Big and Little Sisters in the area, but there’s always a need for more Big Sisters.

Ever heard of New Aberdeen, Ontario? Today it’s empty land southwest of the Budd Automotive plant...though it is due for industrial development overthe next few years. At the moment it is a keen concern of a University of Waterloo archaeologist, Dr. Matthew Hill. “New Aberdeen is part of the history of Waterloo County,” he says. “It was a village of perhaps 200 people and it flourished between 1850 and 1870, rapidly disappearing after the coming of the railway and steam power to Kitchener. The latter rendered its two water power mills obsolete. The houses that had been there were simply towed away and set up elsewhere.” More recently much of the land was acquired by Major Holdings and Developments Ltd., Waterloo. The company was aware of the land’s history and its archaeological and historic potential and contacted Jack Redmond, an official at the Ministry of Culture and Recreation. Mr. Redmond in turn got in touch-with Dr. Hill. At the moment, Hill is trying to raise--money to support some archeological work at the New Aberdeen site. He has applied to the university for research support: he has also applied to the Ontario Heritage Foundation. Further, he hopes money can be raised within the community.

I And how do the engineers feel? Peter Roseneck, 1B electrical, said that he’d “never seen a Bus Push before.” Pete Seville, 3B Chemical, added that “i hope word doesn’t get out that Engineers are helping people.” McKay thought that this year’s Bus Push was a success. “I think that next year we’ll again use a Kitchener Transit bus. That way, we can advertize on the busses,” he said. Joe Brown, off-term Electrical between 2B and 3A, got to be lead man of the rope, having the end looped over his shoulder. “I came down so that I can watch myself on TV,” he said. “I’m glad I did it. I’ll be back next year.” Glenn St-Germain

If he can, Hill would from UW work on the summer. He promises there and dig around

In preparation for the summer’s work, Dr. Hill has been studying old maps and sketches of the community, as well as municipal records. He would welcome additional information from Waterloo County residents. Dr. Hill may be contacted through UW’s department of anthropology; telephone 885-1211, extension 2603 or 2520.

New Engineering


A new engineering program, geological engineering, was approved by the University of Waterloo senate at its March 17 meeting. Although this course of study has never before been offered at UW, key courses are all currently being -offered either by the civil engineering or earth sciences departments; no new individual courses are involved. Senate approval means the. university plans to offer the new program if it is approved by the Ontario Council on University Affairs and by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities. The new program will offer a specialized form of education much in demand today, “Graduates will have some of the geologist’s understanding of earth structures and geological change: they will also have the problem solving skills of the engineer,” says Dr. W. E. Lennox, chairman of UW’s department of civil engineering and one of the proponents of the new program. “Geological engineers are involved with virtually every large engineering project...the James Bay hydro development for example where special understanding of the relationship between soil and huge dam structures is required. UW faculty members stress there is an excellent job market for graduates. “There are nine geological engineering programs in Canada at the moment, graduating a total of 150-160 people a year,” Dr. Lennox says, “and this doesn’t seem to be nearly enough.” The starting salaries of some of these people have lately been “truly phenomenal,” he added. It is intended that graduates of the new be able to qualify for program accredation as Professional Engineers in Canada. The UW program is not ex, prected to become a large one; it would seek to graduate about 20 persons per year. It would be the only program of its type run on the cooperative plan in Ontario.


Foreign .

- March -

WPIRG concluded their successful series of lunchtime seminars on Tuesday, March 11, with a discussion of Canada’s Foreign Aid policy led by John Van Mitchell. The focal point of the meeting was a slide-andtape presentation depicting the plight of the T’boli tribe on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, whose ancestral homeland is threatened by the building of a large foreign-aid funded dam. With the completion of the project, the T’boli land will be flooded and they will be among the growing number of displaced peoples of the world. This situation is only too



common in developing countries where the current system of bilateral aid encourages large corporations to invest capital in the form of industry, according to Van Mitchell. Their profits return directly to the multinationals. Capital loans to third-world countries are rarely to high risk projects such as improved agriculture and more often to hydroelectric projects, dams, etc. The consequences of such bilateral aid, says Van Mitchell, is to have plunged developing nations far into debt without having affected the vast majority of their populations in the day-today game of survival. Quoting an issue of “The New

Internationalist,” Van Mitchell sees three strategies to narrow the gap between rich and poor nations. They are: 1) lower tariffs on processed goods from the Third World, 2) stabilize the price of exported commodities to poorer nations, and 3) an increase in debt write-offs to lessen the financial burden of developing nations. The sad reality is, however, that future trends will likely serve to increase “tied aid” and people such as the T’boli will continue to be the unfortunate victims of an aid programme which does little to improve their everyday lives.

UBC Studeqts Coundil Demands Hearing on W5 VANCOUVER-The University of British Columbia student council voted overwhelmingly March 12to demand that the Canadian Radio, Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) hold a hearing to investigate charges of racism levelled against the CTV network. The W5 program “The Campus Giveaway,” aired on CTV last September, claimed one student in 10 in B.C. was a foreign student and persistently portrayed Chinese-Canadians as foreign students. But statistics compiled for the show say 4.4 per cent of B.C. students are foreign, the speaker for a UIC group protesting the show told the council. The speaker, Phil Calvert of the UBC subcommittee of the ad hoc Chinese Benevolent Association . committee against W5 also showed council a videotape of the program, stopping the tape several times to identify Canadians who were portrayed as foreign students. In every case the students were ChineseCanadian., t‘There are 85~ medical students studying on visa in Canada, not 400 as W5 claimed. Sixty-six per cent of those are American,” Calvert told the council. . W5 also said 10 to 30 per cent of a University of Toronto pharmacology class consisted of foreign students, yet U of T has no visa students in the class whatsoever, Calvert said. He added W5 had claimed there are 100,000 foreign students in Canada, but a letter to CTV from the president of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada stated there were only 50,066 foreignstudents in 1979. Only 18,000 were at the post-secondary level, ,the letter stated. _ _

WINNi@EG-“We want streets without creeps ,” and “Yes means yes and no and means no however we dress wherever we go” were two of the refrains chanted by two hundred people who ma.rched against violence‘ towards women here on March 8. .Public reaction to the march was mixed-from the good-natured to malicious questions about the na.ture of the march to the cheers and taunts from passing cars. The march to take back the night was sponsored by the Winnipeg, Committee Against Violence Towards Women, who will host a weekend seminar on the topic here next month.

A “Hands Off” Situation

Eric McKee said there have only been six cases of sexual harassment reported in the last two years and of those only one student aut orized an investigation. The charge in q% estion was never substantiated, said McKee.

OFS: Tenure may Lower , Quality of Education / TORONTO - Tenure for post-secondary professors may lower the quality of teaching at universities, says Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) Chairperson Chris McKillop. Speaking at the Universit of Toronto on March 6, McKillop sai cr the tenure system which grants job security to professors may be a detriment to universities-because tenured professors are seldom dismissed. “There is little incentive to ibprove teaching once tenure is granted”, he said. Michael Finlayson, president of the_ _ University of Toronto Faculty Association, said U of T faculty members must undergo a rigourous review to become tenured. He said the criteria for the J gpanting of tenure includes achievement in research, effectiveness in all aspects of teaching, assessment of possible future development and university participation. While Finlayson did say that tenured professors can be dismissed for extreme delinquency, he added that they are seldom fired. He also defende’d the tenured system for guaranteein\g academic freedom during research. “In the course of their research [a professor) will not be dismissed for propagating controversial views,” he stated. Although he noted that administrations should not have the right to dismiss faculty memb,ers without justification, McKillop thought incompetent professors should not be allowed to ‘I?j, ,g&iitin*ie:to, te$&; .,‘$.. . .,. *- t:.:.i‘, _j The OFS is- calling for’ mandatory every five reviews of tenured professors years and stronger instructional programs to aid professors in maintaining their teaching abilities. University professors do not undergo formal training. However, Finlayson does not believe tenure affects the quality of teaching. “If you abolish tenure, you’ll still have bad teaching,” he said. Meanwhile, De,an John Ricke,r of the Faculty of Education, agreeing with OFS, said tenure is “outworn, almost medieval in its function at the university” .and is no guarantee that a professor can communicate .well. Professor Charles .Pascal, director of the Ontario University Program of Instructional Development, said tenure may be misused to protect poor teaching and research.

The fee hike strike issue is becoming more complicated. In the last two weeks, several new groups have been formed to either oppose or support the idea of a fee hike strike on the UW campus. Many students found the differences , between these various factions unclear. In order to remove some of the confusion the following is a summarization of the four groups currently active on campus and their respective positions regarding the tuition increases and the fee hike strike. The Federationof




~ The Federation of,Students was the first group toorganize protests over the proposed 7.5% raise in tuition fees. In conjunction with the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) this group has’ organized a petition protesting the fee hike. This petition has been signed by over 4000 students at UW. The Federation wants tuition increases frozen pending an accessibility study to determine if a raise in fees would prevent people from attending university. It also demands an end to the policy ,of fee autonomy and immediate improvements to OSAP such as an increase in living allowance and greater accessibility for grad students.

Minister? Perhaps the most serious charge came from the students who echoed the Ontario Federation of Students’ (OFS) system of education. According to the organization, some universities are using. their autonomous fee-setting power to increase fees in faculties where the demand for entrance is high. Stephenson denied most of the charges, arguing that there isn’t enough evidence to support the two-tier claim. She stated that universities should be allowed some fee-setting power because they were responsible for their own programs of study. Then,“amid heckling, the minister listed a number of institutions that have not raised their tuition the full 18%. She added that occupying the President’s office would not guarantee a lowering of the fee hikes. also defended Stephenson OSAP’s ability to help low‘income families. Summarizing her position, she stated “As you all know there are economic facts of life which we are all subject to, and to which we must accustom ourselves.” This provided the mob with a last chance to boo. ’ Michael Monastyrskyj of the Excalibur --

thousands of students who attend them. .Therefore, meaningful solutions cannot dbe achieved through individual attempts at negotiation. Mass-based political action is required. To this end, attempts by student organizers to rally the support of the people on campus behind a unified protest,. are to be commended. They are further to be congratulated in succeeding to bring Dr. Bette Stephenson to this university to hear our grievances and proposals, especially after she had earlier declared reluctance in having to be repeatedly held accountable for her party’s policies. Hearing our terms in our territory is a psychological coup which should not be underestimated. However, even careful strategy can be undermined by a single, misplaced act. For the individual, or group of individuals responsible for the throwing of a cream pie in Bette, Stephenson’s face, I feel anger and disappointment. In my view, their action has served to divide, if not destroy sympathy for student claims. Now some will cry, “Oh, how shocking: How impolite to treat a guest in such a way.” And in the meantime they ,will forget how much more inconvenienced students must -be as they try’to scrape through the school year on a limited budget, attending universities where the quality of education suffers because of .government cutbacks. But even worse, despite whatever symbolic meaning that the pie throwing might have held, the gesture will be 1 seen as a joke. “Ha, ha; ha. Those crazy college kids are acting up again!” <Either way, we have been made to look irresponsible, and our legitimate worries trivialized into, a joke, not to be taken seriously.

Tying fe&to inflation limits access

The Editor, At the Bet’te Stephenson-rally (Mon. March 17), a small group of people posted a banner stating that one should “Pay Your, Fees!!“. Also, they supplemented this with jeers that tuition fees should be linked to the rate of inflation. What they have failed to realize is, that if tuition fees were linked to inflationary rates, then, more than half the student body of this campus, and most likely other campuses across this province, could not possibly afford to return next year. If this group of parsimonious persons fully believe in increasing tuition. fees, then, may I suggest they review the increases of the academic year 1977-78. This was a $100 tuition increase, by the Ontario government, in hopes of generating an extra revenuein excess of $20 million. As a result 12,000 students could not enter (or even return to) university. I ask this group to seriously think over the possible repercussions of a tuition fee increase; and furthermore, to consider the possible effect this increase would have if linked to the rate of inflation. A.J. Waterman Chairperson, Board of Education

Pie “in the face trivializes issue The Editor, Being a student is not a joke. Not when we are faced with rising costs of tuition & living expenses; decreased availability of real funds through government grants; and an education impoverished by deteriorating facilities and services. Nor is the problem each individual’s fault. Inflation affects every university and the ~-~--~~I)-~~~Ic~~~~~~~~I\*

’ The huge, filthy gray bqilding of the City Terminal normally exerted a depressing influence on any one who entered it. People with faces expressionless and as gray as the walls around them drifted here and there without any visible aim - not even that of waiting for a train. Only Dub’s face was’different. It shone. Far from depressing him, the building reassured Dub that his excursion would be excellent. What a contrast the fields and forest would be to the squalor of thecity.

The’nbxt station was a small building of red brick, a cheerful-place with white flowerboxes under windows. Dub was almost ready to get off, but hesitated. The station was nicer than /r the pne before, perhaps the n;ext one would be even nicer than this one. The train jerked and the building slowly moved out of sight. He was right: the next one was prettier. Dub gathered his things and made up his mind to get off, only the train went right through. It wasn’t scheduled to stop there. A time to rise He was f&ious.

To say that a play is strictly the work of the playwright is misleading. A good script, badly presented, fails as surely as a badly scripted play does. It is into the latter category that The Komczgata Mum Incident falls. The production itself was impressive. The cast had the energy and intensity needed to make the play effective, and it was clear that director Susan Forrest put a lot of time, energy, blood, sweat and tears into making the show happen. Yet all of this could not completely triumph over the basic weaknesses of the script, weaknesses for which the author must accept responsibility. The play was an ,attempt to make an important statement about a dark time in Canadian history, when several hundred Asian immigrants aboard the ship called the Komagata Maru were refused entry into Canada in 1914. Historical evidence indicates that there was no sound basis for this refusal, and yet it happened; this incident is at once the backdrop for the play and the force which drives it forward. The cast was good; surprisingly so, considering that few if any had had previous theatrical experience. Particularly noteworthy was Wojtek Kozlinski as “TS,” whose sheer venom gave his character more substance than even the playwright might have expected. Indeed, the cast had to be good; otherwise the play would have failed completely. It is not clear why author Sharon Pollock felt the need to over-simplify a complex situation. Indeed, her point would have come across all the stronger if she had shown us some shades of gray. Instead, she portrayed the representative of the government as the very personification of evil and corruption, and everyone else in the play as a victim of circumstance. Clearly, she was trying to make the audience aware of the existence of corruption, and of the failure of the judicial system to prevent major abuses of “the system.” Yet by reducing the characters to stereotypical “good guys” and “bad guys,” she has stolen away a large measure of credibility. Perhaps even more jarring than this was her sometimes quite stilted dialogue. Much of it seemed artificial and contrived, as if her characters were simply there to communicate their positions to others. Many sequences seemed incongruous and out of place, as if Pollock were enjoying some private observation that very few others would appreciate. There is no denying that Pollock is capable of doing good work; indeed, this reviewer in convinced that she is capable of producing things far better and far richer than The Komagata Maru Incident. Despite all of this, the cast, crew and

director managed to give the play the emotional impact that it ought to have. The presentation was affecting even on a purely visual level. The combination of staging and technical production was very effective. Particularly noteworthy were the sets by Michael Quinn and Steve Morton, costumes by Roberta Carter, and lighting by Ken Lynch. The combination of these three aspects of the production made it possible for the audience to accept the validity of the situation of the play in a way which the dialogue alone could not. Further credit must go to Susan Forrest, whose effective direction helped her cast overcome many of the difficulties imposed by an awkward and unwieldy script. Bernie Roehl

At least halfr’ Two is worth (The reviewer sits in the theatre, aghast at what is going on on the screen in the name of entertainment. This movie, this thing called Chapter Two; it couldn’t have been written by Neil Simon, the man who gave the world The Fortune Cookie (an underrated film) and The Odd Couple. It’s dull! With a sigh, the reviewer ends his parenthesis and begins the review.) Chapter Two, Neil Simon’s latest movie based on his play of the same name, isn’t as funny as some of his earlier efforts, something which his fans aren’t likely to welcome with open arms. There are, particularly in the beginning, some very funny scenes, and some very funny single lines. Simon appears to want to do something more dramatic, however, and, at least in Chapter Two, fails. The story centres around a writer who has lost his wife, of whom he was very fond, and his attempts to adjust to living without her. The man (James Caan) meets and falls in love with a woman (Marsha Mason), but their relationship is stormy because he finds it difficult to cope with his loss. (The story is said to be based on the events in the life of Simon, who did remarry after his first wife died. It may certainly be possible for the basic plot to have been so written, but I would doubt that the movie accurately reflects the events in his life. As I remarked to one of the people I saw the film with: “Nobody lives like that!“) One of the problems with the story is that, in a conventional sense, it is resolved around the middle, when the man remarries, and the rest is anticlimactic. The story runs something like this: Boy Loses Girl - Boy Finds Another Girl - Boy Gets Other Girl and the two argue for

of Chapter watching the remainder of the film. While this may be valid, it isn’t very interesting to watch. The major disappointment is, of course, that, to make room for the element of drama which Simon wants to portray, the element of comedy is played down. It is there, to be sure (particularly in the first half of the film); the first meeting of the two people destined to become lovers is hilarious. Overall, however, the film isn’t really a comedy, and comedy is what Neil Simon does best. On the other hand, a pleasant surprise is the acting of James Caan. In Chapter Two, he shows an ability to handle dramatic material to an extent which he never has before (certainly not in movies such as, say, Rollerball). Given some good dramatic material.. . Marsha Mason is good as the woman he falls in love with. I don’t know that she should have won an Oscar nomination, but, with the exception of a little overacting towards the end, Mason is quite acceptable. (Acceptable... adequate...words that look nice but mean nothing. Let’s face it - the movie sucked the big one, it wasn’t what it should have been, it was dull!) If you are willing to sit through a...quiet second half of film, the first half of Chapter Two is worth watching. The location shooting of their honeymoon is delightful. (The reviewer sadly shakes his head, wondering why he can’t write a really earthshaking negative review. Probably psychological - he was rejected as a young kid and can’t reject anybody now that he’s partially grown up. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t drink Aargh! Power down.. .) Ira Nayman

Athenas Waterloo’s women’s alpine ski team won the overall team title at the annual CanAms held last week on Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, The CanAms are a series of races between schools which have won regional championships in eastern Canada and the eastern US. Skiing this year were Queen’s, McMaster and Waterloo (Ontario), McGill (Quebec), Dalhousie (the Maritimes), Johnson State (Vermont) and Plymouth State (New Hampshire). This is the fourth ye& in a row that the Athenas have represented Ontario in the CanAms and the first time they have been -..victorious. Last year they finished in second place. The members of the Athenas were: Lee~Gardner, Cheryl Leviten, Jenny Graves, Sylvia Ounpuu, Cary First-’ brook and Donna Mattershead.




was the top UW skier

All members of the team credit depth and overail consistency as the main reasons for their success. “Although some of the schools had more outstanding individuals, it was the depth of the Waterloo team that was crucial,” stated Warren Wilkinson, one of the team’s coaches. According to Lee Gardner, “the main thing is to have consistency.” This was a sentiment *echoed by Patsy Chalmers, another coach, in explaining the consistent success of the alpine skiers. “Over the past four years... we’ve done well. We’ve won the Ontarios three times and come in second once.” Evidence of that depth and consistency can be found in the results of the final slalom where four UW skiers finished in the top ten. Competition began Tuesday, March 11 with the slalom. The slalom was made up of two runs over the same course which was used for the Olympics. One moment of jitters preceeded the race when the UW skiers realized that the gates were drilled into the ground. “We all freaked out,” said I Sylvia who went on to Ounpuu, explain that they were used to gates which, when hit by a came out of their skier, placements. The UW team was in third place after the first day’s racing. Jenny Graves led the

way with a fourth place finish. The giant slalom was run on the following day in conditions which could only be described as terrible. An eighty below wind chill factor greeted the skiers at the top of the run, while sheer ice accompanied them on their way down. The course was approximately 90 seconds long. “It was the longest any of us had ever skied,” said Ounpuu. She continued, it was a “psych out, because it was sheer ice.” Gardner ignored the obvious fatigue factor (they usually ski 45-50 second courses) and said it “felt really good when you finished the s-ame course as the Olympics. We were so hyped ‘up.” ’ Waterloo won the first Grand slaloin run and came iri second in the final run. Ounpuu led both runs with

respective fourth and fifth place finishes. The grand slalom results pushed the Athenas into a tie for first place with Queen’s in the race for the overall title. The final race was another slalom. UW, with Graves in fourth place, Gardner in eighth Cheryl Leviten in ninth and Ounpuu in tenth, was victorious in that race, a victory which also gave them the overall title.







The Athenas ski team is the only team at UW to win a competition beyond the provincial level this year. (In fact, the odly other team to win a provincial title - the men’s table tennis team - is not a team but a club and has no athletic department affiliation). For the skiers, the CanAms are the equivalent of a national competition and yet under budgetary procedures within the athletic department, there is no formal way to provide monies for this competition. Members of the ski team felt that the budgetary procedures should be altered so that money which would be directed towards a national championship could be directed towards the CanAms instead. This reasonable suggestion is not the final word on skiing. The team members have their own final message, obscure though it may be ‘Thanks for dropping by, Dan.” Jacob Arsenault

Athletic elitism would threaten academic ‘standards savs Matthews d

“Sport should be a part of life, not a way of life” according to Dr. Burt Matthews. Matthews was speaking at the annual athletic banquet last Tuesday at Bingeman Lodge. Matthews’ comment was part of a criticism directed towards government and those who would make of universities a breeding ground for athletic elitism. The federal government and third party scholarships are “putting a lot of pressure on universities to produce elite athletes.” However, according to Matthews, “our programs are not geared to that goal.” Matthews claimed that in order to orient university programs to produce more elite athletes considerable adjustment would be required. It would entail the expenditure of a great deal of money and a lowering of academic standards. comments Matthews’ were made following a year when multi-fronted effort was begun to get the university system involved to a greater extent in the international athletic scene. The recent Olympics at Lake Placid certainly pointed out to some the inadequacy of our current programs, while the success of the US Olympic hockey team has dovetailed nicely with tbe plans of some ta form a super hockey league within Canada, the goal of which would be to improve the calibre of college hockey and to provide a feeder system for the Olympic team. Meanwhile, the government of British Columbia, in

a recent move, has committed itself to provide scholarships for all intercollegiate athletes who are residents of BC and are competing for BC schools. Matthews, however, feels the proponents of such schemes ignore certain facts. To those who feel Canadian scholarships will stem the flow of southbound athletes, he warns that this will not happen unless universities lower their academic standards. To those who support the super league concept, he cautions them to examine the fate of those athletic programs (the majority of those in the country) that will not be part of the tier one structure, and asks if this can be good for Canadian College hockey. While Matthews was declaring that athletic programs at universities “should be for students” he also suggested an alternative proposal, which,

Burt Matthews




while not compromising the academic standards of universities would provide some assistance for athletic programs. The essence of the proposal was the establishment of amateur leagues in various sports. If the franchises in the leagues were situated near existing universities, the teams could draw on those excellent college athletes as well as drawing non-university players to fill their ranks. The teams could also benefit from the close proximity of universities in that they could’ draw on the skills being developed there in the fields of coaching and training. Matthews reiterated his belief that new mechanisms were needed in Canadian amateur sports and that universities could work in conjunction with the new mechanisms but they should not be the prime object of those mechanisms.

Comp’etitive Broomball Tournament I Last Thursday at McCormick Arena, the 1980 competitive broomball tournament came to a dramatic climax. The first game of was the Consolation Final, in which the Ret Ramblers (space cadets) outclassed a highly amusing bunch of Engineers, known collectively as “The Boys”. The final score was 8-O in which Mike Mueller (Bobby Orr) was voted MVP .by his entusiastic teammates. The Black Knights and the Old Bastards engaged in a hard fought battle in which the pseudo “old men” on the ice ran away with a 3-l victory. It was a close, tense match right down to the last minute, and the few fans that were present really go,t “involved”, cheering their frietis on to victory. It is assumed that all patticipants (fans and players) enjoyed the tournament and that it will hopefully continue next year with a few minor changes. Larry

81 Field Team-Sylvia Malgedy. It is because Sylvia is such an outstanding performer that she. is not with us this evening, as she is in the south preparing for her hopeful Olympic berth., As.the pre-, Olympic qualifying meets become closer, the athletes must continue to prepare diligently. Sylvia is a K-W native and a graduate of Cameron Heights Collegiate. In high school, she was an all round athlete while participating in the OFSSA track competitions in the 1OOm. hurdles and the long jump. In her first year of university competition, she won-2 gold medals in these events. Then what looked like was’going to be an exceptional career took a temporary turn as Sylvia was plagued with 2 major knee operations. Once recovered, Sylvia, somewhat dubious, began again. In 1978-79, she challenged both indoor and outdoor, finishing in the top 5 in each event she entered. In this 1979-80 season, she won 1 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals. She is currently ranked 5th in Canada in her events. This Canadian ranking will make Sylvia’s next few months of preparation critical as she attempts to make the team that will represent her country this summer. Totzke Winner Don Langlois Hockey Don Langlois ‘is in his graduating year from Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. He comes to US from Kirkland Lake, Ontario where he played Juvenile Hockey in the Northern Ontario Hockey league while attending Kirkland Lake District Collegiate. During his four years with the Warriors, Don has established himself as one of the premier hockey players in the Ontario University Athletic Association Hockey league. He has been named to the

league’s 1st All-Star team the past two seasons and, tothe 2nd team on one other occassion. Last Wednesday night in Regina, Don was named to the. C.I.A.U. All-Canadian Hockey team, only the third Warrior player to attain this honour, an honour well deserved as he lead the Warriors to a very successful season in 1979-80. Don has been the top Warrior scorer for the last -2 years. This year he was fourth in league scoring with 54 points in 22 league games. He scored a team record six short-handed goals during the year, and averaged more than 30 minutes. ice time per game. In addition to his on-ice accomplishment, Don has been very involved off the ice as well. As the team captain, he is responsible for the formation of an extremely positive attitude among the hockey team, he represented the team at many clinics as well as on the Intercollegiate Council. Earlier this term, Don was presented with one of the Mike Moser Scholarships representing outstanding athletic and academic achievement. His extremely consistent play attracted many N.H.L. scouts to Warrior games, resulting in a try-out with the Toronto Maple Leafs last September. He hopes after graduation to pursue a hockey career either with the pros or in Europe.
