Naismith:

L

Here at the University of Waterloo we like to think that we helphed put basketball bn the map in Canada. It is not overstating the case to say that Waterloo has become the hub around which Canadian basketball revolves. This is partly due to some of the great Warrior teams and players of the past. It is due in great part to the huge, raucous crowds which Warrior basketball attracts, and which teams from all over Canada love to play in front of. But as much as anything else, the annual Naismith Classic Basketball Tournament is the vehicle which has helped to make Waterloo’s PAC the Mecca of Canadian roundball. The Naismith Classic was the brainchild of Waterloo Athletic Director Carl Totzke, who foresaw it as an exciting way to herald the opening of UW’s brand new Physical Activities Complex in 1968. Originally dubbed the TipOff Tournament, the event was Canada’s first eight= team basketball tournament to that date. It was also the first occasion upon which teams from all over the country competed against one another. So successful was the inaugural tournament that it became the model upon which the eight-team CIAU Championships were eventually constructed. That first tourney marked the first of three Acadia Naismith victories. The

tradition

Mickey Axemen were an unknown quantity in this part of the nation, but the name of their star backcourt wizard, Brian Heaney, was no secret. Heaney was merely sensational in that tournament, scoring 78 points in three games, a record that would stand for five years. The Axemen went on to edge Loyola of Montreal 99-98 in a thriller. The best the hometown Warriors could manage was a semifinal appearance. Acadia returned to successfully defend its

Fox title in 1969, but without Brian Heaney, who had departed to a career that would eventually take him to the bench of the NBA Baltimore Bullets. Acadia seemed to miss him but little, however, as they rolled the Guelph Gryphons in the final by 19 points. Waterloo won the consolation title, led by guard Jaan Laaniste, who scored 77 points in three matches, and was named to the tournament all-star team. Laaniste went on to become Waterloo’s all-time

of excellence d

career scoring leader, with 2332 points in five campaigns, a distinction which he still holds. Acadia did not win the tournament again until 1978. That tournament is still fresh in the minds of many students who are still at Waterloo. The Axemen were still playing a brand of basketball that spotlights exceptional individuals, and Warrior fans are not likely to soon forget the performance put on by one very exceptional Mike Hazard, a transfer from Rhode Island. Mike Hazard owned the tournament,. and was an obvious MVP choice. The final game against Waterloo was one of the most exciting ever played. Acadia took a seemingly insurmountable 21 point lead into the second half. But sparked by the incredible Pat BrillEdwards, and the brilliant All-Canadian Seymour Hadwen, the Warriors roared back to take an unbelievable five point lead. The issue was not decided until Hazard canned a 20 foot fadeaway jumper in the dying seconds to give Acadia a 75-74 win. -heartstoppi’ng Besides Acadia and Waterloo, only four other teams have ever won a Naismith Tournament. 1970 was the year the event’s name officially became the Naismith Classic, in honour of the native ’ Canadian who, invented the game at a Massachusetts YMCA so many years ago. That year,

a Simon Fraser team laden with scholarship players destroyed the opposition, beating UW 83-54 in the tourney opener. With a frontcourt comprised of Alex Devlin, MVP Bill‘ Robinson (both future Canadian National team Members), and the massive Wayne Morgan, SFU rolled every opponent they met, finally stomping Acadia 75-58 in the finale. Waterloo won its second consolation title.

In 1971 the arrival of Don McCrae ushered in a new era of dominance of Waterloo basketball. Led by Laaniste, Tom Kieswetter and Paul Bilewicz, Waterloo beat Simon Fraser 88-79 to win its first ever Naismith.

Kathy cox

World champion accuracy chutist Kathy Cox is a second year kinesiology student at Waterloo. She is also a world champion. This August, in Bulgaria, she captured the Gold Medal (women’s) in the World Parachuting Accuracy Championships. The competition involves hitting a 10 cm target from 2500 feet up, with your heel. She accumulated only 11 centimeters in penalties while hitting right on, on five-of her ten jumps. The other half of the competition is the style part, in which the jumper is required to make four turns and two loops. He/she is penalized (in seconds) for errors, and that time is added to the time it took to perform the manoeuvers. The one who achieves the lowest time through their five jumps wins the gold in style. Both results are used to calculate the overall champion. By finishing first she became the first Canadian to win the accuracy gold, and also broke the dominance bf the East German and Russian women (a Russian won the

style championship, and an East German won the overall). Canada has been competing internationally in parachuting since 1951 and has picked up a few medals on the way. Only last year Canada won a gold in the World Relative Champions hips (four-man), and a silver in the eightman.

Kathy said at one point that she felt “lucky” to have won. She paused for an instant, and then said, “no, fortunate.” Indeed, there is a wide difference between the two words. Serious parachuting requires a lot of time: work, sacrifice and expense.

Kathy started jumping nine years ago when she decided to try it for fun, after reading an ad for first-time jumping in a paper. At the same time she was taking flying lessons, because she likes to be “above the ground”. She soon dropped the flying lessons and devoted her full time to parachuting. Most approxipeople, mately 95%, Kathy says, who come out for their first jumps don’t continue. There are many reasons for this: the time (Kathy has spent a month waiting for the weather to clear); the cost (from 5 to 10 dollars a jump]; and the fact that many people come out just to dare it once. As one of the 5% who continue on, Kathy found it to be, as she put it, “addictive”. Before going to Bulgaria, Kathy spent four months at a North Carolina training site. From April to July she lived out of her van, further explaining her ‘parachutist’s credo’, “save money all you can, spend it all jumping, then save some more.” Most competitors have jobs in which they are able to take several months off.

Kathy’s situation is a bit different, but being a co-op student helps. Concentration and knowand your ing yourself capabilities also play a big role in parachuting. Kathy said she looks at the scenery while coming down. There’s also the pressure. Kathy says she thrives on it. In the Nationals she once overshot her target and had to stretch all the way back to hit it with her toe. The result was that “I fell flat on my face.” You “go for it” at that level of competition. Just ten jumps from her diamond wings (2,000 jumps), Kathy has only had four malfunctions. Still, she wasn’t scared, for as she puts it, “I’m trained to respond.” In fact, a basic aspect of training is the readying of the jumper for all emergencies. Kathy also sees new avenues in parachuting that she would like to explore. Para-Ski, which is a combination of cross-country skiing and parachuting, is starting to catch on in Canada, with the Nationals being held at Collingwood this year. Kathy is presently in China attending their Nationals. This is a reciprocal invitation that stems from the Chinese attendance here this year. Paul Zemokhol

Friday, The line-up for this year’s Naismith tournament is not as strong as it has been in previous years, with only one team coming from the current top five in the national rankings (Guelph, number five) and only three others from amongst the top ten (St. Mary’s, Acadia and Winnipeg). Nevertheless, early season rankings are subject to considerable change and one can only expect such traditional powerhouses as Acadia and St: Mary’s, as well as Winnipeg, to make a run for the top spots as the season wears on. The Naismith, in addition, had traditionally been a showcase event amongst the pre-season tournaments and a victory here can automatically vault a team forward. The notable absentee in this year’s grid is the Victoria Vikings, last year’s Naismith and national champions. The Vikings, currently ranked number two (behind York) are the first Naismith champions not to show up to defend their title. Following is a run-down of the eight teams entered in the two-day event:

Bishops, who must face St. Mary’s in the first round, will have their hands full, and will likely drop to the consolation round, where they will find, to their chagrin, yet another superior team, this one to eliminate them from furtherplay. The Gaitors are led by 6’5” Trevor Bennett, and have a competent guard combination in brothers Andy and Mike Mullins. ’ They have won, thus far in the short season, two tournaments, their own and the-Ottawa tourney where they beat perennial Quebec champions Concordia. They are not to be-under-rated, but the luck of the draw would appear to be against them.

Huskies

St. Mary’s, ranked 6th in the country, is one of the co-favourites of the tournament, and should have little trouble advancing to the second round. They are basically a six--man squad, but despite the apparent lack of-depth, they are an outstanding team. The Huskies are led by 6’11” freshman Kevin Jones from Yonkers, New York. Little is known of Jones but at that size, he can hardly be dismissed with impunity. Working up front with Jones are veterans Ron Blommers and 6’6” Bob Oostveen, both from Chatham, Ontario. Blommers, a strong, aggressive and versatile forward can be expected to mete out physical punishment under both boards, in addition to scoring points. Oostveen, a veteran of McMaster and Windsor, has spent the past’ two seasons playing first division ball in Holland. At guard, veteran Rick Plato, 6’3” Mike Robson, and freshman Fred Murrell from Oakville will supply more than enough’food for thought for their opponents. In all St. Mary’s is powerhouse category, and certainly worthy of a higher ranking that may well be influenced by this weekend’s results.

Bishops Coach:

forward who was an All-Canadian last year, and who is out with a knee injury. However, even without Magel, Winnipeg looks formidable. They feature, up front, 6’9” Belaineth Degeuffe, the springiest forward in Canadian basketball, and Ken Opalko, perhaps the best shooter in the country. Rumour has it that the Wesmen have had a super recruiting year although details are unknown. If true, this should bolster their otherwise thin corps of players. Coach Bruce Enns is known for his competent, disciplined teams, and it is likely that even without Magel they will prove to be strong opposition for Guelph, whom they face in the first round.

Smith

Guelph is very deep. They have a good guard combination in Mike Sesto and Tom Heslip, both of whom can fill the basket. Heslip is an exciting player who can turn a game around solely with his speed and his exciting, reckless play. Sesto, when he’s hot, can shoot the eyes out of a cockroach from centre court. Up front, the Gryphons will miss the rough and tumble play of Rick Dundas who is at present in Australia, but they still have veterans Peter Smith, Mike Scott and transfer student Derek Lewis, a 6’6” forward out of Toronto’s Oakwood Collegiate who got tired of playing second fiddle to St. Mary’s American “Wunderkind.” Also available to bolster the forwards is 6’7” freshman Ron Henry from London. Without doubt, this is the best team-that Guelph has had in a few years, but the absence of Dundas in this tournament could prove to be their undoing. Dundas represents the power in the team, and while they could very well get past Winnipeg in the first round they will have a great deal of trouble against St. Mary’s On the other hand, Derek Lewis may have something to say about that, and his presence on the floor could be the difference.

The Wesmen are a strong team, but they are a team missing their top player, Bob Magel, the 6’6”

The Hawks are a three man team - Bob Fitzgerald, Leon Arendse and Bob Flack. If they were playing three on three, they might be ranked in the top ten in the country.

On paper, Acadia could be the best team in the tournament. Returning vete-rans Ted and Robbie Upshaw and Bo Hampton, joined by Hampton’s younger brother Larry from Boston, will dazzle and amaze their opponents with speed. The question is whether they will score enough points to get them through the tournament. The answer is probably no. They won their own tip-off tournament and have beaten UPEI and several American teams, but they don’t have the player who has been the franchise for the past two years-Mike Hazard. They face the Warriors in the final game of the first round and should advance without a great ,deal of difficulty. They will probably advanceto the final Saturday night, but do not be fooled, they are not the best or even the second best team in the tourney. The luck of the draw is on their side, but the championship will be decided in the second round between St. Mary’s and Guelph.

The Warriors are four and two in their pre-season play thus far, with both losses being served up by American schools. However, Waterloo has not really played anyone of any consequence and therefore their record is questionable. They are a young team and they are suffering. They will miss Doug Vance, the veteran forward, who will not join the team until after Christmas and they will miss Bob Urosevic, the freshman guard from Kitchener, who is out with a stress fracture in his leg. Urosevic is an outstanding shooter and ball handler, and his absence, along with Vance’s, also an outside shooter, will give the Warriors a rather one-dimensional ~-.---attack. dn the bright side, Waterloo is receiving sterling work from\sophomores Dave Burns, who has led the Warrior scoring in every game, and Phil Jarrett who has shown the most improvement in the short season. At the guard position, Cal Kiel, playing his first year with the Warriors, is proving competent but will have to carry the burden by himself in the absence of Urosevic. Forward Paul Van Oorschot has been a pleasant surprise, as the 6’6” Milton native plays with fierce determination.

Also on the agenda for the weekend is a very high quality high school\ tournament, featuring a possible replay of last year’s all-Ontario final between Windsor Herman and Ottawa’s Bell Collegiate. Jacob Arseneault

Brian Schnurr led Western’s scoring with a hat trick while Rob Thomson picked up the lone UW goal. Left winger Tim Pearce, who was hit hard in the second period, suffered some broken ribs and will be out for a week or so, accordint! to trainer Brian Farrance’.’ After the game, coach Bob McKillop stated a number of things that “we didn’t do well,” on both defense and offense. The Warrior team will be sorely tried as they face

after Christmas to bring the team to full strength. Heinbauch is optimistic about both teams’ chances in the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union swimming finals, which look to be promising for the UW swimmers if they keep rolling like they have. <

IGordon Brownell, the executive director of NORML, says there is “zero c‘hance” for decriminalizing pot at the federal level during the nextlfour years. For ‘the past decade, there has been a trend at the federal level to reduce or even remove jail penalties for simple pot infractions. Brownell predicts that this trend will be reversed beginning January 20th. The NORML director says he is particularly concerned about conservative repu’blicans as leaders of, the senate-and with South Carolina’s Strom Thurmond taking over the Senate Judiciary Committee. Thurmond will replace the liberal Edward Kennedy as head of ‘the committee that authotis criminal laws; and Thurmond announced almost immediately after the GOP landslide that he would make tougher drug laws one of his two highest priorities. Says Brownell: “We expect tougher drug statues and higher appropriations %r the Drug Enforcement Administration.”

Allegations of sexual discrimination concerning two UW co-op students and the Office of the - Premier hit the pages of the Globe and Mail and the floor of the Provincial Legislature this week. Sandra Nicholson and Roy Carlsen, 3B Honours’

English Co-op students, were each quoted different salary ranges during interviews this term for the job of Correspondence Officer in Bill Davis’ office. The job entails answering correspondence and cominformation on piling issues attracting public interest.

Urich Ferdinand, who interviewed the two students, offered Nicholson between $215 and $220 a week, while Carlson was offered between $220 and $250 a week, the students said. In an interview quoted in the Globe and Mail last Monday, Ferdinand ex-

plained the different salary quotes by saying that he “didn’t have time to look at the applications more closely” before the interviews. The Globe article prompted the interest of other media, and inquiries from the opposition party. The Minister of Labour, Dr. Robert Elgie, res-

Premier, replied that “working in the Premier’s office is a good experience for students” and that “Waterloo co-op students will still be hired without prejudice.” Devitt added, “The allegations are not a big concern to us. I think we can stand an investigation on the basis of sex.” He also believes the matter is a “result of misunderstandings” and “cafeteria gossip.” The salary range for the job now is between $160 and $225 a week. Stated Devitt, “A good percentage of the gals (working here more now) are, making than some of the men.” “I doubt that there’ll be any negative’ aspects in the way of numbers of jobs,” stated Weiser. “In the more established programs, students may not be allowed to bargain for salaries as much as in the past,” he added.

New UW President Douglas T. Wright Following a special meeting of the University’s Board of Governors, Chairman J Page Wadsworth announced Thursday that Dr. Douglas T. Wright will become the University of Waterloo’s new President on July 1, 1981. Dr. Wright, 58, is a former Dean of Engineering at Waterloo. Dr. Wright was born and educated in Toronto. Aftergraduating in civil engineering from the University of Toronto in 1949, he studied structural engineering at the University of Illinois where he received a Master of Science degree. He then attended Trinity College at Cambridge University in England on an Athlone Fellowship and completed his Ph.D. degree in 1954. After teaching civil engineering at Queen’s University in Kingston for four years,(he went to Waterloo in 1958 to become the first chairman’ of the Civil Engineering Department - at Canada’s newest university, and a year later, he was appointed Engineering dean.

ponding to a question about the allegations from Stuart Smith, Leader of the Opposition, in the legislature on Monday, said that the whole issue was “overblown” and a result of “inaccurate reporting”. The two students, both of whom accepted different jobs, were unavailable for comment. However, according to the Globe, they learned of the discrepancy when they “compared notes after the interview.” Because they both felt Nicholson was more qualified, they were surprised that Carlsen was offered more money. Ray Weiser, director of co-ordination and placement, conducted his own investigation this week. Weiser, who told Imprint in a previous interview that co-ordination “wouldn’t deal with” employers against whom sexual discrimination could be proven, said “I’m convinced there was no intended discrimination” in this matter. When asked if the job in the Premier’s office would be available to future UW co-op students, Vince Devitt, an executive officer to the

Horwood opened the seminar, which-was sponsored by the English society, with some remarks about Canadian publishing’s greatest problem-distribution. “Canadian publishers have a geographical problem that no other country in the world has to deal with,” said Horwood, adding that other countries as vast as ours also have populations about five times as large. At the moment there are no answers to the problems that Canada’s size and current system of distribution cause. Horwood noted that it can take six months for a book ordered from Vancouver to arrive in central Canada. He added, however, that the Writers’ Union of Canada and the Association of Canadian Writers are holding a joint conference in February, at the end of which a commission will be appointed to investigate ways of improving distribution his introFollowing ductory remarks, Horwood fielded questions from some two dozen people in attendance. Most were concerned with how to make money in, or break into, the writing market in Canada.

“The way to make money out of writing is by way of, journalism,” stated Horwho added that wood, script writing “is lucrative, but can be a trap.” “Television writing is..a very hungry market,” he maintained, but “hardly highest form of the writing...Essentially it’s a hack writing situation which pays a lot of money and you can’t get out. If what you want to do is produce literature, this isn’t the route to go.” According to Horwood, writers needs a “certain quality of character” to deal with disappointment and rejection. He cited the experience of Sheila Burnford, author of The Incredible Journey, whose bestseller was rejected by at least fifteen Canadian publishers before being published in Britain.

,

Horwood, who has had works published by seven Canadian publishers and has been publishing since the mid 1949’s, said “it was a good many years before I produced a book that was acceptable.” “The first thing you have to do is really believe that you’ve got it,” he noted, addin#g a quote from his grandfather: “If great you’re not conceited you’ll get nowhere.” Sandy Newton

Notice of Annual General Meeting of Shareholders Take notice that the first annual gem&al meeting of Imprint Publications, Waterloo will be held on Monday the 24th day of November, 1980 at 2:30 p.m. in Physics rm. 313 on the campus of the University of Waterloo. The proposed agenda is as follows: 1) Acceptance of Chair for the meeting; 2) Receiving and considering of the financial statement for 1979-1980, made up of a statement of profit and loss, together with the report of the auditors and the Board of Directors; 3) Ratification and election of the Board of Directors for 1980-81; 4) Appointment of auditors and authorizing the-directors to fix their remuneration; 5) Confirmation of Bylaw # 1; 6) Motion concerning an amendment to Bylaw # 1 requiring the membership of Graduate Students in the Corporation to be dependent upon the payment of fees; 7) Motion amending Bylaw # 1 to drop references to the Federation of Students; 8) Passage of the Banking Bylaw and the Banking Resolution; 9] Motion concerning an increase in the Imprint fee.

David Rowe Systems Design 4B I would react against a compulsory military service unless Canada was actively defending itself against enemy attack. Until hostilities begin, the disruption of my life and others is not warranted, and will cause more trouble than it is worth. I would accept a draft for the defense of my country.

Rosanne Atwater-Hallkt Fine Arts secretary It would depend with whom we were at war - and if that country was actively attacking Canada (as opposed to Canada defending another country.)

Joe Taylor Chem 1A Well, I don’t think it’s a good idea. We have enough volunteers: I guess we can always count on the US.

John Johnson Planning 4 I would react positively. I think there is enough nationalistic feeling for Canada these days that there would be support for such action. Whether modern warefare would need the manpower of conventional warfare is debateable, so there might not be the need for as many people. .

Amendments to this agenda will be accepted by Margaret Sanderson, Treasurer of the Board of Directors, in the afternoon business hours from the publication of this advertisement until 200 .m. Friday November 21st in Campus Centre rm. 140. Motions must be moved andsecon B ed by members of the Corporation, both of whom must be present.

Local women found issues magazine Feminism is being kept alive and well in the Kitchener-Guelph area by a new women’s magazine published by Dumont Press, entitled Hysteria. According to Moe Lyons, Hysteria contributor, the conception and developof the magazine ment began a year ago at an International Women’s Day

Conference where she and several other women expressed an interest in working together. Lyons explained that the original intent was to nurture working bonds of co-operation. and respect among the women producing the magazine. Lyons stated that there are 8 full members of the

women’s collective responsible for Hysteria’s birth. As well, she continued, most of these women have histories of political activism at some point in their lives. Asked why the name Hysteria was chosen to headline the publication, Lyons commented that during the last century

MCU brief shallow says OFS TORONTO (CUP] The Ontario Ministry of Calleges anduniversities’long awaited brief to the federal-provincial task force on student assistante contains no new concrete solutions to aid programs difficulties, says the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS). Although Minister of Colleges and Universities Bette Stephenson had earlier told OFS they would not receive the ,document a copy of the as yet unreleased brief has been sent to the Federation. The brief ignores most basic hardships facing students on aid programs and fails to propose ways to make education accessible to . all, said OFS spokesperson Peter Birt. Several executive members of OFS termed the document “shallow” and “disappointing”. The Federation had high hopes for the brief, since Stephenson III~ defg;;atit review of Student Assistance Plan (OSAP), until after the t&k force had reported its findings.

According to OFS, the only positive recommendations contained in the brief concern portability of and length of loans eligibilty for loans. It that “prorecommends vincial plans should place no limitations on the portability of provincial outside the assistance province of residence . . . within Canada.” As the current plan stands, an student Ontario-based cannot receive a loan tram the province in which he or she resides if attending college or university in another province. The brief suggests that students be eligible for loans for up to six years, an increase of twd years over the present system. The brief also stresses more cooperation between federal, and provincial aid plans but leaves administrative duties up to the provinces. Currently, Canada student loans are administered by the Federal Government. Using OSAP as a basis for any nationally-sponsored program, the brief s;tates any such scheme

MONTREAL (CUP] - More than 200 McGill University students demonstrated outside a board of governors meeting November 17 to protest the university’s failure to divest its multi-million dollar interests from banks and corporations dealing with South Africa. Meanwhile the Board was reviewing its first written report on divestment from its committee on Social Responsibility. “At this stage of its deliberation the committee not convinced that zvestment is the only answer or even the best answer and wishes to explore all possibilities in order to determine the approach that would be the most effctive within the parameter of its mandate,” said the report. The committee on Social Responsibility was formed

last year in response to pressure from the McGill South Africa committee. Over 3000 signatures were collected last year on a petition demanding the divestment of university funds. Barbara Jenkins, president of the McGill External Affairs Committee on South Africa, told the demonstrators before a march across campus that “we have a right to express our opinions on actions taken

by the Board of Governors that we feel are wrong. McGill is not a multinational. It is an instituion of iearning. It should show principles in its actions.” The marched shouting South support

demonstrators across campus “McGill out of Africa” and “no for the racist state”, and gathered in front of the building where the Board meeting.was in progress. “We’ll show the Board oj

Governors I\ :.;~t we wnnt,” commit tee member Kichard Flint told the crowd. “If they don’t act, it will be up to us to act.” Jenkins said many of the Governors have direct links with corporations who deal with South Africa. “It’s not in their best interests to divest.” The demonstators said they were unhappy with the Board’s inaction. “It really seems that they’re trying to bury the issue and hope the students will forget about it,” said Flint.

UW enrolment up 6.6%, official total now 21,045 The official total enrolment at the university this year is 21,045-an increase of 6.6% over last year, announced UW President Burt Matthews at a meeting of the UW senate last Wednesday. Matthews broke down noting that this figure, there are 15,221 full-time students on campus (a 3.4% increase over 79180) and 5,290 part-time students (an increase of 19.7% over year). Matthews last

c.ommented that these figures indicated a respectable enrolment. Other business at the meeting included the acceptance of a report from the Senate Undergraduate Council approving the creation of such new programs as a four year general program in-‘English, French, Philosophy, and Geography,,* a legal studies option, and a personnel and administrative studies minor.

A report from the Senate Graduate Council recommending the addition of a co-op MA program in Economics and a report advising the continuation of the Anthropology Department were also approved by Senate. The meeting ended with a closed door, confidential session for the purpose of reviewing .a report from the Presidential Search and Nominating Committee. Sharon Mitchell

Africans need Soviet heir,

INTENSIVE ‘REVIEW SEMINARS

A

“African leaders have their own objectives; Soviet support is a product of affirmed circumstance,” Mustapha Kamare during a lecture on “Marxism in Africa,” one of the highlights of last Saturday’s seminar on “Africa in the 1980’s”, sponsored by the African Students’ Association. political Kamare, a science professor at the

University of New Brunswick and a native of Sierra Leone, criticized the view of the West that “Russia can’t hold on to its friends,” such as Egypt, Sudan, and Somalia. These countries really weren’t Marxist in the first place, he said, and thus were able to manoeuvre away from the Soviets. “The situation of Africa

negates a total commitment to Marxism”, he maintained, “since the Africans, religious belief and -traditions will continue to be very important, while true Marxists would reject such principles.” . “The Soviets have been generally successful in Africa,” stated Kamare, adding that this success can be seen everywhere in Africa,

First of all, the local government usually asks for Soviet aid, but does not call for American intervention. Secondly, “Soviet activity in Africa conforms to the principle of the Organization for African Unity (OAU), to eradicate all colonialism and racism in Africa.” Soviet activity in Africa is part of the Soviet plan to foster world-wide revolution,” maintained Kamare. In Africa, he continued, this involves Moscow’s support of “just wars of liberation,” new regimes created out of such wars, and regimes which are sympathetic to the Russians; such as Ethiopia, Angola, and Mozambique. Kamare noted that many Westerners feel that the Soviet Union is exploiting Africa. “To Africans, this doesn’t matter,” he said. “What matters is that they are helping Africans in their own struggles against racism and colon-

ialism. Africans need this help, he stated, because they can’t as of yet produce their own arms.” External aid proves to be decisive in times of conflict in Africa, stated Kamare, and decolonialisation and the resolution of boundaries which make little political, economic, or strategic sense have been “painful, conflictinducing” processes.

Prodding from conservationists led to an Ontario Department of Agricu,lture land-use study in the Niagara Fruit Belt in the mid 1950’s. (Four of the researchers’ are now at UW: Burt Matthews, Doug Hoffman, Bob Irving, Ralph Krueger.) _The study teambmade recommendations about the need for regional planning of urban growth, highway building and the provision of basic urban services. However, since this study was sponsored by. the Department of Agriculture, all planning recommendations were cut from the published report (the Louth Report). because municipal planning and highway planning came. under the jurisdiction of other government departments. gj-j&$gvmm~&ada@-

The Louth study was just the first of a multitude of provincial government studies on the Niagara Fruit Belt. Invariably, the studies were used as substitutes for action. For example, the Gertler Fruit Belt Report; which spelled out in detail what steps must be taken to preserve the fruit land, was completed in 1968 but was not

Ba released to the public until 1972. By that time, the new Regional Municipality of Niagara’ had been created, and the provincial government passed regional ‘planning responsibilities on to that body. By 1974, after many volumes ofstudy reports had been completed and countless public hearings had taken place, the Regional Municipality of Niagara completed its proposed Regional Plan..

.. gJ&fHmQiw&@&@@ Davis government rejects Niagara Re@onal Plan

In the written text, the document contained mgny declarations about the desirability of preserving the fruit .lands. But the “urban area boundaries” map indicated that the Regional Plan was proposing more land for urban development than its own population projections would require. The urban area boundaries had apparantly been drawn so liberally in order to accommodate the expansion desires of the local municipalities. The Niagara Regional Council had failed to ,create a Regional Plan that wotid preserve one of its more valuable resources, During the provincial, election campaign of 1975, the preservation of the fruit lands became a major issue in the Niagara Region. Mel Swart (N.D.P.), one of the few preservationists dn the Niagara Regional Council, ‘became a carididate in the election, and w,as very effective in detailing .the way in which the proposed urban area boundaries were contradictory to the Region’s own stated objectives. As a result, Premier Davis announced that the provincial government vould not approve the Niagara Regional Plan. After the election, the provincial government rejected -the Niagara Regional Plan and returned it to the Region for revision of the urban area boundaries. The Regional planning staff (on which there are a number of Waterloo grads) recominended that the areadesignatedfor urban development be reduced by some 7,000 acres. RegionalCouncildidnot accept this recommendation. Instead it proposed a reduction of about 500 acres. In the spring of 1977, the provincial government. responded to the Niagara Regional Couricil, requiring it to roll back the urban area bou’ndaries by about 3,000 acres. This compromise solution pleased neither the expansionists nor the preservationists. Members from each group protested to the Minister%f Housing. The latter referred the -whole issue to the O.M.B. and the fight was on, ~ Thus, in the fall of 1978, the 0.M.B: commenced hearings that dragged on for over two. years. It was truly a “Davidand-Goliath” struggle. On the pro-expansionist side were the Regional Municipality of Niagara, the local municipalities of Niagara Falls, Thorold, Pelham, Grimsby, Lincoln; St. and Niagara-on-the-Lake Catharines owners of over seventy-five 1 separate parcels of land that had been referred@ the O.M.B.

Le nds Each of the above was represented by egal counsel, so that over thecourseof the learings there were approximately fifty lifferent lawyers pleading the cause of xpanding the urban area boundaries. By contrast, PALScouldnot evenafford o hire one lawyer at current fee rates. The group was fortunate in obtaining irst the services of John Willms of the Jaugn-Willms law firm of Toronto, and ater the services of Peter Elliot of St. :atherines at less than the going fee rates )ecauqe of their sympathy for the cause of ‘ALS. Nor could’;ALS afford to pay for highIriced expert witnesses and for detailed esearch that such hearings require. All of he research was done voluntarily by nembers or sympathizers of PALS, and nost expert witnesses presented their’ estimony free of charge. Even with the bargain-rate legal #ervices andvoluntarylabour, thecosts to ‘ALS were very great because it had to lave counsel present at every day of the whereas individual municiplearings, Ilities,-land owners or developers needed o be represented only as their particular nterests arose. When the hearings began, )ALS anticipated that they would last for about six months, and certainly not longer han a year. Ai it turned out, they lasted for two /ears, and part of the way through the iearings, it was not clear -how the jrganization would pay for past debts, let llone meet future obligations. Some nembers of PALS began to wonder if the expansion proponents were perhaps

ctragging the hearings out in the belief that PALS would ultimately collapse through lack of funds. Thus the most crucial task in the PALS struggle to save the fruit lands was to raise sufficient funds to pay for legal counsel. This was done in numerous ways: bake sales, raffles, art shows, walka-thons, and donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. Some members gave guarantees to a commercial bank in order to provide a line of credit for the organization. By February, 1980 (one-and-a-half years after the beginning of the hearings), PALS ha:d raised $52,000, but the expenses had amounted to $85,000 and it was estimated that the hearings would continue for close to another year. Donations had peaked and money-

making activities had reached the saturation point. It was urgent to find new sources of funding. PALS pleaded-financial hardship to Ontario Legal Aid and in the summer of 1980 received a grant of $40,000. This made it possible to continue the fight.. The first round of hearings in the fall of 1978 concerned only Niagara Falls and Thorold. Evidence provided for PALS by expert witnesses and local farmers informed the O.M.B. that the agroclimatic resources in the area were among the best in Canada. It was also demonstrated, and upheld in vigorous cross-examination, that the Region hadoverstatedits housing needs and its general urban land requirements. In a decision handed down in February, 1’979, the Regional urban area boundaries were rolled back by some 1,500 acres and the request for another 500 acres of urban

development land beyond the boundaries was denied. This was a signal victory of PALS; about 2,000 acres of prime grape land had been saved. There was little time tar celebration. The O.M.B. decision was immediately appealed by Thorold and one of the developers to the provincial government Cabinet, the Divi-sional Court and the . Ontario Court of Appeals. The decision in’ each case was either favourable to PALS or was adjourned until after the second round of hearings, and PALS received court costs. The second round of O.M.B. hearings concerned the urban area boundaries of the municipalities of Grimsby, Lincoln, St. Catharines, Niagara-on-th&Lake,and Polham. These municipalities contain

most of the tender fruit soils and the most intensive fruit growing areas of the Niagara Fruit Belt (Figure 1).

If the decision is reasonably favourable to the environmentalist group, (and PALS is optimistic) the municipalities and developers will doubtless appeal to the provincial government Cabinet, which will make a final decision in-camera. Thus the process appears to be somewhat circular. The discussion leading to a final decision will not be available to the public. However, even if PALS does win this fight, it cannot be assumed that preservationists will win in future contests. In a sense, Niagara is a special case. It contains unique agroclimatic resources, has been studied for over twenty-five years, and has received a great deal of media publicity over a sustained period. Even then, PALS had great difficulty in raising sufficient funds to present its case. With a less clear-cut case, an inferior information base, and less general public concern, what chance would such a citizens’ group, in another part of Ontario, have? If the provincial government is not going to present and defend its food land policies before the O.M.B., but is depending on public interest grbups to carry out this task, it would seem only right that the government provide funds to ensure that the citizens can do the job, and do it effectively.

The hearings were first scheduled to begin in June, 1978, but one major developer, who h8d had a large parcel of land excluded from development in the first round of hearings, objected on the grounds that the O.M.‘B. panelists, Blair and Blake, were “biased” and should disqualify themselves as a hearing panel for the second round of hearings. When Blair and Blake refused to disqualify themselves, the developer filed with the Divisional Court for a “prohibition” (similar to an injunction) to prevent Blair and Blake from sitting as a O.M.B. panel for the second round of hearings. The resulting legal wrangling caused to be postponed until the hearings November, 1979. The good news for PALS was that Blair and Blake, who were judged to be manifestly fair and professional in their handling of the hearings, remained as the O.M.B. panel. In the renewed hearings, PALS reinforced with additional expert its arguments witnesses. These provided th,e hearing with further statistics concerning the agroclimatic superiority of the Niagara Fruit Belt over all other regions in Canada, and more detailed analysis of the projected demands for urban development in the Niagara Region. It also re-inforced its contention that there should be long range plans for industrial and residential growth in Welland, Port Colborne and Fort Erie to help take urban development pressure off the more valuable lands to the north. It was argued that the slowing of economic development in the Region would provide the necesssary lead time to re-direct the growth away from the P ..I 1 rruit lana areas. The municipalities and developers countered that it was too late to roll back the urban area boundaries, and that planning and service commitments h&d already made the land uneconomically viable for farming. The Region argued that if ample developement land were make available, then there would be a better chance of making the urban area boundaries more permanent. The Region also pointed out that it had instituted rigorous rural development policies for the areas outside of the urban area boundaries that would protect the remaining agricultural land from urban sprawl. After the general arguments were made, the case for each of the sixty parcels that had been referred to the O.M.B. was heard. Lengthy and sometimes tedious evidence was presented; m’ost witnesses were crossexamined at length. At the time of this writing (November, 19801, the hearings are still continuing. There will be no decision until some time in 1981.

A milestone for environmentalists ,.

gJgJQJG!J@&a&@~@dp The O.M.B. Niagara urban area boundaries hearings are a milestone in the greater struggle by environmentalists in Ontario to have the issue of the preservation of good farm land taken seriously. This is the first time that prolonged hearings have been held where the only issue has been the urbanization of extensive areas of agricultural land, and the first time that a group of citizens has been willing and able to battle successfully fdr the preservation of agricultural, land over such a long period of time.

The conclusion of the O.M.B. hearings will not mean the end of this David-andGoliath struggle to save the Niagara fruit lands. As long as there is no strong commitment by all levels of government to preserve prime farm land, concerned citizen groups will have tocontinue being on the alert. And they should fight future battles. Without strong public support, we cannot be assured that David will always win. Dr. Ralph

The Editor, Well, John McMullen, I am also upset. I strongly object to your disrespectful comments on Remembrance Day. “They died because they didn’t have ‘the strength in their belief not to go to war...“ Wrong, John. They died because they had the courage and idealism to fight for other people. My parents were in Holland during the war. aunt married a MY ‘Canadian soldier. My grandfather and my uncle are two of those who are “croaked, deep-sixed, rotted and gone,” as. you so eloquently put it. If Remembrance Day means nothing to you, you might at least have the insight to realize how fortunate this makes you. Perhaps a little closer contact with the realities of war might make you appreciate, as I do, the simple blessing of peace, which we often take - for granted. Lynne Verbeek

The Edit or, I would like to address the issue of equal accessibility to post-secondary education. Many people state that because most students come from uppermiddle income families, the principle of equal accessibility is not being observed. This is an error in logic. There is an old saying that you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. This applies here.

November

We can nrovide equal opportunitiks but if people refuse to take them, that does not indicate failure on our part. A student from a higher income family is likely to be from a family in which the parents have a higher education. These families are more likely to stress the importance of a good education to their children. They offer a better example to their children. They provide better opportunities for their children eg. books and magazine. su+bscriptions. I would suggest that a child’s decision about “what to do when he grows ” is formed to a large ifgree in the child’s early years. A large proportion of students from families with upper-middle class incomes does not indicate a failure to provide equal access. It indicates the success of their parents’ encouragement. Gordon Wray Engineering

Tanks disabled by eloquence? The Editor, Having just read John McMullen’s opinion of the value of Remembrance immediately Day, I checked to see if by mistake I had picked up a copy of the chevrag. I find it hard to believe that anyone with any semblance of intelligence or responsibility could actually call the people that fought for liberty and the right to free speech (which McMullen certainly wouldn’t have now, if they didn’t) in the last few wars gutless.

I guess that if we like McMullen, all find some rock to crawl under and hide, instead of standing up to the agressors on the battlefield when the situation- called for it and nothing less, then we could live in complete harmony. Bullshit my friend! Words will only work when both sides agree to abide by them and when talk is futile, I have yet to see any set of words that will stop a 7.62 mm. round or any phrase disable a tank. I lost relatives in WW 1, WWZ, and a friend in Vietnam, and I assure you none of them went there because they wanted to, but because when their country. called for them, they had the courage to support the country that had supported them, and fought back. If McMullen doesn’t think that those brave people’s lives were worth the few moments of silence each year, then I hope he finds it warm under that rock of his. James R.

Horwood speaks to aspiring writers

Insider gives publishhg tips Last Thursday the.English Society together with the English Faculty sponsored a presentation in which Renison’s writer-inresidence, Harold Horwood, answered students’ questions concerning the publication of material. Horwood, who is quite knowledgeable and

experienced both in writing and publishing, patiently responded to queries and gave his personal opinions on subjects ranging from beginning publishing to job opportunities. When one has written material for publishing, Horwood advises that the manuscript be as complete and neat as possible. As

New Jesus: real flesh and blood ‘but flawed With such personalities as the stunt man, the elephant man and private Benjamin hitting the silver screen, Jesus is making his appearance in movie theatres in a film not surprisingly entitled “Jesus.” This film is fairly enjoyable, but technically, it needs a miracle. The script is hardly original-all the lines are lifted straight from the Bible. (My teachers always called that plagiarizing). Instead of seeing Jesus as the whole New Testament depicts him, we are forced to see him through the eyes of St. Luke. In my opinion, the film would have been better and more unified had the actual character of Luke been the narrator instead of merely a voice. The character of Jesus is at times not forceful enough. He seems almost nonchalant for instance, about turning over the tables in the temple. The temptation scene also does not appear to be a particularly trying time. One problem with filming such material is the portrayal of angels, the devil and miracles

without putting the audience in stitches: the angels and some miracles are done fairly well, as is the devil (in the form of a snake). Yet other miracles border on the phony side. If one merely wishes to see Jesus come to life, however, this film can be quite interesting, and possibly even educating. The scenery is breathtaking as filming was actually done in Israel, and for once, most of the characters do not look as if they were dragged in off the streets. Some of them even resemble Jews! No longer is Jesus just a distant figure, but a real flesh-and-blood man. But why another Jesus movie you ask? Warner Brothers researched his life in depth and attempted to deliver a view that is historically correct. Or so it seems. For example, when crucified, he was nailed through the wrists rather than the palms since the weight of the body would rip the hands to pieces. Rllt then uou must overlook the Roman centurian with a cockney ELLS.... A.M.

well, it is best to get helpful criticism from another person before sending it. The publisher that is receiving a work should be carefully chosen, Horwood noted, as each company has certain preferences and standards. Should a piece of work be accepted, he said, it will undergo a series of revisions, first by the editorial editor who decides whether the work is suitable, then by the copy editor who examines the manuscript in greater detail’ correcting spelling, punctuation and contradictions. The author has the right to reject any Nevertheless, Horwood recomrevisions. mends that all suggestions receive careful consideration before being rejected. Publishing is a complicated procedure, he maintained, but should one require advice, the Writer’s Union in Toronto can be helpful. In addition to book publishing, Horwood discussed other media such as newspapers and television. He maintains that the market for television material is vast, easy to write for, and financially profitable. Other topics touched upon during the presentation were the popularity of various genres, the publishing of dramatic literature, problems of the different media, copyrights and distribution. . However, Horwood states, a writer must have faith in himself and not be discouraged when the rejection slips arrive. In fact, he suggest that it may be beneficial to correspond with the editor, thanking him for viewing the material. At the close of the lecture, Horwood expressed willingness to aid anyone who is considering publishing material. One can contact him at Renison College. A.M.

Jackson: he’s still “The Man” The Man’s back. He’s also Beaf Crazy,the name and title cut of his new album. As usual, he has some great cuts, and some probable commercial successes. His two previous albums have yielded much the same: a satirical, critical look at various aspects of society (“Sunday Papers”), and observations on his fellow man and his predicament. What’s this, you say? Is he making out Joe Jacksonto be a modern day philosopher? No. But by no means is Jackson’s music just an endless harping on love and being out of or in love or.. ..His songs range from the global to the social, and the songs on this album are no exception. They range from fitting into

society, as in “Fit” (about homosexuals and half-breeds), to “Pretty boys” (about wanting to “see a human being on my TV set”) to “In Every Dream Home (A Nightmare)“. Yet topical songs are not Jackson’s only forte. He also sings about fate (“Someone up there”) and lust (“Biology”). He deals with situations not with trite cliches, and he has either a feeling for a subject or a tongue-incheek look at it. What it all comes down to is that if you don’t want bad songs about the same old things, or even good songs about the same old things, get any Joe Jackson album. Paul Zemokhol He’s still The Man.

John Varley is a relative newcomer to the SF world, but make no mistake - this man is excellent. In general, Varley’s works are biological/medical in orientation: he likes to play games with genes. Sounds dull? , Absolutely not. Take the girl who woke up in a hospital to discover that she is now the sixth clone of her original self, the previous five murdered by a fanatic who is still on the loose. However, that’s a Varley short story. His mettle has been tested in short fiction,and he’s proven himself a master. . What about the novel? Wizard is a sequel to last year’s bestseller, Titan (which was a candidate for the Hugo award for best novel). For those who remember (and for those who don’t), Titan concerned an enormous wheel discovered in Saturn’s orbit which turned out to be alive and contained a veritable world, complete with exotic living blimps, murderous flying angels, a race of centaurs, and . . . a God. Around the ringed planet floats a living god, a creature who can create living beings out of her “skin” to inhabit the circular world within herself, for her own amusement. She is a Titan, one of many such creatures in the galaxy. Along comes a human * I . .. exploratory vessel. tiaea (she calls herself that for our convenience) literally consumes the crew, who then travel the world within, eventually contacting the god as the hub of the torus. Gaea then makes the main character, Cirroco, a “wizard”, and gives her special responsibilities. End of Titan. As a sequel,. Wizard suffers from the fact that now you are expecting the colourful world of Gaea. Still, Varley lets his imagination go wild, and the setting is superb. The characterization is well-developed and involving and in SF, that’s ~_ hard -em to find A problem with the book exists, however and it is this: the first two thirds are very descriptive, but what’s the plot? Varley has only given us half a novel. Wizard essentially is the dramatic buildup to a terrific climax for which, unfortunately, you’ll have to stay tuned until some time next year. That’s frustrating! Wizard takes place after mankind has accepted Gaea’s existence, and the Titan has become a tourist attraction for the wealthy. . . and a pilgrimage for the diseased- : Two incurable cases, Robin and Chris, go to Gaea for help from the god. Well, Gaea demands a hero’s quest first. Disenchanted, the pair fall in with the wizard Cirroco and her companion Gaby who, it turns out, are planning a revolution against Gaea! For the last hundred pages, the excitement rages as Gaea launches an attack and the two pilgrims join in the war. And that’s it. We’ll have to wait for the big clash. Aside from this flaw, Wizard is great entertainment. The novel is mere proof of Varley’s originality and inventiveness. Throughout, he throws us enticing bits to chew upon. For instance, there are hints as to the nature of Gaea. The Titans appear to be the technological creations of a super-advanced civilization. They are living computer-disney worlds of space, biologically given life by the ultra complex science of an alien race! Wow! So be aboard your ship, rush to the bookstore and buy this book. Just be Iprepared for a “join us for the exciting conclusion next week” feeling, and start saving up for book #3! Pat Forde

TheArts 451” 451” Intercan The first album by a group of seasoned veterans, 451”, by 451”, comes dangerously close to being a total rip-off. The following review therefore sounds like a shopping list of borrowed gimmicks and effects.

ballad, which breaks away from the standard verse-chorus-verse-chorus format, is one. “Fastest Gun in Town”, although it does sound like Jethro Tull (because 451” borrowed Martin Barre, Tull’s lead guitarist, for the song) is another fine song with an “oldwest” romantic flavour. It contains a stirring vocal bridge and is the best thought out, intermeshing the lyrics with the music to produce a highly dramatic effect. The quality, once again, fades with “I’ve Got The Power”, which rips off Max Webster’s “Hangover”. + The subsequent two songs, “It’s Alright” -and “Only the Young Survive” are tedious, trivial, and repetitious. The album ends with a traditional blues number “Checkpoint Charlie”, which offers a refreshing change only to lapse into tacky sound effects (a person lighting a cigarette, clinking ice cubes, etc.). 451” IS a technically taultless album, but. unfortunately, falls short in the new-ideas department. Dan Ayad

Trooper Let’s start with the title of the album (also the group’s name). 451” - Ray Bradbury’s sci-fi novel, Farenheit 451. The first song, “Everybody Loves a Hero” borrows the lead guitar riff from April Wine’s “Could Have Been a Lady”. Perhaps this is justifiable since 451”‘s Jim Clench has been a long-standing member of April Wine. The next song “China” uses Bruce Cockburn’s vocal style and harmonies as well as Steve Hackett’s layering of the electric guitar (Spectral Moinings’, “Everyday”). The third song “Don’t Walk” copies Red Ryder’s “White Hot”, with a stock, heavymetal guitar solo thkown in for good measure. “Can’t Blame Me” is the fourth. Played double time, it sounds like April’ Wine’s “Roller” - it also has the bass line from Deep Purple’s “Highway Star”. 1 Should I continue? Well actually there are a f- couple of songs which might bring home the bacon: “Santa Anna Winds”, an intimate -_.*?-- ./ I. _

Trooper MCA Ra McGuire and friends have returned with another album. Untitled, this new release contains several Trooper-type songs, but also has a few, well, “different” pieces. Sound quality is excellent, though the percussion, played by Tommy Stewart, doesn’t always blend with the rest of the instruments. Stewart is a little louder than usual in “Real Canadians”, and more than a little evident in “If I Never See Your Face”. The overall sound is tight, with some excellent work by Robert Deans (especially his work in, again, “If I Never See Your.Face” and “Volunteer Victims”, and his organ work in “Volunteer Victims” and “Real Canadians”), Brian Smith (who plays great guitar in “I Don’t Wanna Be Here”), and Doni Underhill (notably “Don’t Feel Like Dancin”‘).

Live bands appearing in the Villages are rare, but this Friday (21st) and Saturday (22nd) night you will not have to go all the way into Kitchener to hear some live music. Metagenesis, an Ottawa-based’ band, will be performing in the Village II dining hall at 8:OO pm. An upward moving group, Metagenesis has spent several years playing the “High School”i scene. Playing many favourites as well as some pieces of their own, the group has a good, tight sound. Admission is $2.00 and $3.00, and will be collected at the door. Refreshments will be provided - for a price, of course.

So much for how they sound; now for who they sound like. There are two cuts which particularly stand out: the beginning of “Are You Still My Baby” has a very heavy Rush-like sound; and the beginning of “Laura” resembles April Wine’s “You Could Have Been a Lady”. The cut to look out for on this album is “I Don’t Wanna Be Here” - it’s tjlpical Trooper style: fast, hard, and very danceable. With the help of the Tonto Bros. (you can hear them best in “Real Canadians”) Trooper has created an excellent album. Cliff

Bush for Ever

s Kate Bush is back, in Never for Ever. It’s her third long playing tale of mystical, magical vocals of which dreams are made. The cover features the English maiden high on a hill with hair blowing and skirt flowing in a most interesting animal menagerie. She beckons you inside her sensual world and soft imagination with timpani, sitar, banshee and balalaikas (Slavic string instrument). She flies you to Egypt in a sweet, yet vibrant serenade of pyramids, tombs and Desert Eyes. The songstress trills a song of summer to Delius and sadly narrates the tender story of love lost in Babooshka. Babooshka writes of a woman who wanted her husband’s lost love, uses the psuedonym Babooshka in scented letters written to him, then arranges,tc meet him. “And &A hi Iaid eyes on her, He got the feeling

dramaticist. Blow Away, a beautiful (Kate’s favorite word) tribute to past performers, is by far the most powerful track on the album. Her simple piano and string accompaniment (Alan Murphy, Brian Bath) create a spine-tingling melodic eulogy. It’s a rock party in the heavens. The lyrics are timeless yet Bush fears time itself, as she talks of former friends. “Hello Minnie, Moony, Vicious, Buddy Holly, Sandy Denny, Please don’t thump me, don’t bump me. Don’t dump me back there. I want to stay here.” The girl who first sang for her supper at age 16 is now 22, and will stay in English lionhearts ‘for a long time. She had matured from many around her and it’s evident on this album. Guests include Larry Fast (Mr. Synergy), brothers Paddi, on many instruments, and John, who did the cover illustration, poet Roy Harper and kindred spirit Peter Gabriel. Bush is similar to Gabriel in style and interpretive technique, yet Gabriel is a prophet, Kate a musical nymph. She is the voice of the elements in Breathing, the female cry of humanity, vulnerability, compassion.

The Beat I Just Can’t Stop It WEA ‘Once you hear it, you just can’t stop listening to the English Beat. The six-man Birmingham based band (Andy Cox, Dave Wakeling, David Steele, Everett Moreton, Ranking Roger and Saxa) have been lumped with Madness, The Specials, and Selecter, the latter two being mentioned in the album credits, but are NO? ska. The Beat have an airy sound, a springiness to the guitar work not corn arable to the distinctive driving force ot J adness, or the rock and reggae of Selecter. The lyrics are reminiscent of the Specials, but more tonguein-cheek. Guitarists Andy Cox ‘and David Wakeling give the Beat their individual music mark with slick twanging on “Rough Rider”, “Noise in This World” and especially “Click Click”. You’ll want to move faster, faster to these. For nostalgia lovers, there’s Andy Williams’ oldie “Can’t Get Used to Losing You”, featuring nice dreamy vocals from Ranking and Smokey Roger and Wakeling; Robinson’s, short but sweet and saxy, “Tears of a Clown”, first released as a single. Click\, click . . . And the Beat goes on. “Hands off, She’s Mine”, a follow-up disc, also on this LP is a mover right from the first guitar riff. And David Steel’s bass in “Twist and Crawl” *will make you want to twist and crawl right in your seat. The best of the Beat is the ever-popular “Mirror in the Bathroom”, featuring the amazing 50-year-old Saxa on sax. He’s not called Saxa for nothing. His saxaphone is superb on “Mirror” and probably one of the reasons the Beat is so big in America. If you’re planning a bash and want mood music, get this album. It’s got that irresistable dance aroma to it and will keep everyone twisting-and-crawling into the wee hours. You just can’t stop the English Beat. It’s infectious. Coral Andrews

Once again an old proverb prevails “don’t judge a book by its cover”. In this case, the “book” is actually a recent release by a young Ottawa-based group, their second album; Hot Spikes. On the surface, the shabby graphics and the ho-hum titles give the impression of a second rate album thrown together by a pack of amateurs. I must admit, I was quite ready to blast the album. But then I sat down, closed

my eyes, and listened. What I heard was some of the most original music to come out of this area in a long while. Granted, the drumming was very straight and the “hook line” (title) was repeated endlessly in some songs, but the group still pulled it through. The saving grace of the album was the economical use of guitar, and the liberal employment of keyboards - a luxury in heavy rock circles. The product, a fusion of eclectic art rock and heavy metal sounds very much like it came from the British music scene. Be sure to listen for “What am I to Do”and ‘Never Come Back” on the airwaves.

of Reggae Reggae is the music of Jamaica. It is the music of an oppressed society crying out for help, and mostly it is the music of the Rastafarians, who revere Haile Selassie of Ethiopia and are of a,back-to-Africa religion. The word reggae was first used in 1968 in a song written by Toots Hibbert called “Do the Reggay.” It is unknown where Hibbert picked up the word and the true derivation of it is disputed by etymologists. Keggae emerged from its fore-runners “rocksteady” and “ska,” which were both a combination of pop, from the mid 60’s. When reggae first appeared, it was the music of the delinquents who called themselves the “Rude Boys of Kingston” (Jamaica’s capital) or Rudies. These young people were tired of the caiypso music that flowed through the West Indian islands. Since they had little money to invest in musical instruments, they had to stick to basics. They purchased instruments like box guitars, bass guitars and drums. They would then use bottles, tin cans and sticks to enhance the sound of their music. Reggae started in Jamaica’s ghettos-Jonestown and Trenchtown. It was a way for the people to express their discontent with the social conditions in the form of music. During the late 60’s popularity and personal tastes resulted in a split in reggae music. There was the pop-oriented style, created by artists like Byron Lee and Desmond Dekker. This style was more popular with Jamaica’s middle class and foreigners. Music with Black Power messages produced by artists like Douglas Mack’s Band became the “other” style of reggae. The messages in this music greatly influenced the people of the slums and i .encouraged them to stand up for their rights. Unfortunately these people were too poor

and ignorant to actually do anything about their situation. In the early 70’s artists like Bob Marley and the Wailers popularized hardc.ore reggae in the West Indies as well as North America and Europe (particularly England). These musicians were spreading fhe word of Jah (The Divine Black God) and appealing to black people of ail nations to proclaim strength and roots in an African way of life. Reggae lyrics were often political satires turning on recent events. Since 50 per cent of Jamaica’s people over 15 are illiterate, reggae records were often the only medium that carried political and social messages to the masses. Reggae’s influence on the listeners’ cultural subconscious was so intense that songwriters like Peter Tosh, Max Romeo and Toots Hibbert became very powerful in the media. By the late 70’s young reggae artists that were previously known only by the Jamaicans who followed the reggae scene closely were known by many’ people outside of the island. Artists like Burning Spear, Third World, Bunny Wailer and Uroy brought about a change in the attitudes of the people. This change in attitude could be seen in the intensity of the music as well as song titles. Titles like “Prisoner in the Street,” “Jah Sees and Knows,” “Exodus” and “Arican Woman” showed a move towards rebellion and Black or cultural awareness. It wasn’t until 1976 when Eric Clapton’s version of “I Shot the Sheriff” hit the top of the charts that reggae made the jump from a cult to commercial sound. By this time American record companies were producing much more reggae since it proved to be profitable. Reggae became more sophisticated. Clarinets, organs, saxophones and flutes often accompanied the basic guitar, drum and bass guitar trio. Today’s reggae is a mixture of music, religion, marijuana, politics and poetry. To the people of Jamaica, reggae is now “the rhythm of life,” because to them it is more than ballads of hardship and oppression. It is the story of the Black man’s struggle.
