Architect6 .’ hano wed for solar-design x. Two Canadian architects, James Fryett and Joseph Somfay were prize winners in a competition sponsored by the P-assive . Solar Energy ,Society of America, in Amherst, Mass., last month. Hundreds of architects from all across the continent par. ticipated. Their design was for a row house (multi-family dwelling). It was based on a thesis project Foyett did in his final year of studies at the University of Waterloo; he graduated with a bachelor of architecture degree in 1978 and has since been associated with-Somfay, a UW aichitecture profe’ssor who also has an architectural practice in Sa!em, Ont. The Fryett-Somfay dwelling was designed for a specific site in the Forest Heights area of Kitchener. So’ effective is the design that Fryett estimates ’ occupants would be able to rely on the sun’s rays for tip to 95 per cent of their heating needs in Kitchener, assuming 70 degree temperatures are acceptable. this percentage However, wduld drop off substantially if ,the occupants are not attentive, notes Fryett. The construction cost would be fairly close to the cost of a comparable, nonsolar home, says - Fryett, adding that the units, which are modular in design, would be built fairly quicklyand easily. Why, then, is this design judged worldbY renowned expertSto be the best of its type on the continent - begging*for a builder? “Canadiqn builders still aren’t into solar to any

appreciable extent,” Fryett says. “In most cases it’s because they’re afraid of getting into something they don’t understand. They’re .also concerned, of course, about marketability; they’re not _sure_ buyers .-- tiill go along . . with a,house that looks a bit and that perhaps : unusual costs a few thousand dollars more.”

SASKATOON (CUP) Des‘pite personal losses of over $130,000 and the destruction of two years work, the victims of an art department fire at the University of Saskatchewan will receive little helpfrom the university admin‘istration. The fire, which occurredduring the summer, gutted the art depart-ment st,udio and destroyed the work of five art graduate students. Two’ students bore the brunt of the cost, losing apprdximately $50,000 eac’h. . The uni,versity said’ it will not make any payments to the students over the $500 mentioned in the outdated insurance policy covering p,ersonal losses on campus. The students involved feel this amount is an “insult” considering the monetary value and unique quality of the items lost. No smoke alarms, fire extinguishers or sprinklers were present in the tirea of the fire. Al Livingston, university safety office, indicated

,,Jack Scarf o’f the provincial fire safety unit, said that all the buildings on campus “are approved in Regina” and the reports are. sent to S&katoon. He stated “they don’t have the staff to look at everything.” Alan Reed, superintendent of buildings and grdunds, said “the building is built’ih accordance with the provincial fire codes as upheld by the fire marshal1 of Saskatoon.” Arson is suspecjed. .R.T.

Only 10.5% of returning coop students replied to the Student Advisory Council’s (SAC) questionnaire during back to campus interviews this fall. However Bruce McCallum, associate director of co-ordination and placement, says the results “haven’t changed signifi-, cant ly from previous ones.” The poor response rate, said McCallum, was due to a problem getting the . questionnaires“ distributed.” The last questionnaire was issued to students in the spring lY8U term, and had a 34% response rate, he noted. “We’re going to have to look at other means of distributing the questionnaire,‘: McCallum said.

In Science, 60% felt this way, although Science had the- lowest overall response rate, w_hich was 7k: 89% were satisfied or more than satisfied with services provided’ by coordinators.

Log in ilan~i3!? A confrontation between UW Mathematics and Engineering students took place near Engineering 1 and 2 in the early afternoon of Tuesday December 1, during a procession reminiscent of the engineering parade held in early November during Engineering Week. This time, the parade was staged by mathematics students, and a log on a table - “the natural 1og”on “the log table” - was carried around campus,‘in the manner of the engineering mascot “the ridgid tool”. Ron Heath who has been elected as next year’s . Engineering Society (EngSoc) President, said he saw signs advertising the parade poste,d around the Mathematics Society (Mat hSoc) office, and decided to “welcome the mat hies appropriately.” Walter Steinemann, a MathSoc c.ouncillor who claimed to be an “innocent bystander” to the event, ’ estimated that about 60-100 engineers greeted the parade of about 20 mathematics students. According to Heath, the “welcome” consisted of an indoor water attack and an outdoor snowball barrage. He stated that the mathematics students brought paint with them - which ended up on various people. ” Lumps and bruises were suffered by both factions. MathSoc President Mark A. B. Garson, fearing a detached retina after his eye was struck with a “snowball,” went to the hospital for X-rays, Several engineers complained of paint on their coats, Heath commented, and threatened “capital punishment for the mathies responsible,” but Heath said he “talked them out of it.” “The log table” is still in the possession of MathSoc, but “the natural log” was ta.ken by engineers who used a pair of bolt cutters to remove the log from chains which secured it to four,w mathematics students. “The natural log” is, in any case, not the official “mat hscot” - this honour was awarded many years ago to “Yhe pink tie” which, although it his been seen during the last year, is now reported to be “lost, half its original lengt’h, and moth-eaten” according to “unidentified source” Tracy Tims.. Laurie Cole

The results of the survey, including, comments will be given to the program administrators, said McCallum. However, any responses that give away the identity of the author will not be passed on, he said. “We know we have a few things look at,” to McCallum stated, “and we intend to do it.” He noted specifically that “further. evaluation will have to take place to improve the quality of work term visits.” Sandy Newton _ (6

The brief itself, entitled The Situation of the Ontario Universities, present&d a number of alternatives to be considered in determining the role ‘of universities in the years ahead. Its tone was one of gloomy constern& tion: “The situaiion ofi the Ontario universities has reached ,a point where, in order to reconcile the publicly endorsed objectives for the unitiersities and the level of publicly approved funding, it will require either increased \ substantially Junding or scaling down s ‘the objectives for the <universities.” An OCUA brief of 1978 listed these overall objectives as seeking: “to develop a more educated _populace; .to educate and train people for the professions, to provide for study at the highest intellectual level; to conduct basic and applied research, including development and evaluation; and to provide service to the community.“’ I Even though, according to the brief, these objectives have ‘tbeen endorsed orally by the Premier in meetings with the Board Chairman and Executive heads in 1979,” the authors of the brief still maintained they found. “a growing inability of the universities totcarry out the goals previotisly stated _. . . let alone to respond to new challenges.” “The underlying cause,” the report asserted, “is a . situation in which, by comparison with universities in other provinces and by comparison with mqsti other sectors of Ontapio public expenditure, the relative funding for Ontario universities has ’ deteriorated significantly/ in the past decade.”

In a sectidn entitled “Coping with a Shortfall in Resources”, I t‘he brief -discussed the implications and practical issues in. vol-ved with the entrepreneural, centralized authority and incentive methods of fiscal survival. “Universities might, in theory, expan’d...revenue( yeilding activitiesJ and

emphasize their profitability,” stated the brief, giving “massive educational proearns for non-Canadian a students on a contractual basis”, “intensive marketing of education4 and research

Funding and objectives must be reconciled, warns COU brief The following excerpt-form the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) brief, The Situation of the Ontario Universities, discusses three possible options which. might be pursued by the institutions. 1.

However, the brief adds a cautionary note stating that “a danger of universities relying on the profitability of ancillary enterprises is that it would divert energy and - initiative from the central mission of the universities in education and research. Furthermore, even the most ambitious effort on the part of the universities would be unlikely to yield in net revenue more than a tiny fraction of the annual total shortfall in revenue from grants and fees.” In addition, public sector funding and athletics are seen by the brief as falling far short of a possible solution: “in view of the intensifying competition in university revenue from this source to make up the estim-?ted shortfall in operating funds, whatever level of effort is committed to it,” states the brief, which similarly notes that “critics may not be aware that major athletic programmes seldom yield profits for the operating budgets of US universities, a point we have established by checking with US institutions,” and may “generate pressures for performance which are potentially damaging both to athletes and to the academic priorities of the universities.” The concentration of planning for the universities in one centralized authority is also seen by the brief as less than ideal: “one could foresee widespread lay-offs and other dislocations of academic and support staff, closing out of educational many opportunities for and potential students, alienations of boards of governors, municipal governments and citizens . . . Furthermore, the evidence other jurisdictions from where authority and planning have been completely centralized indicates that a heavy price is usually paid in bureaucratic inefficiency and lack of local academic flexibility and vitality.” The contraction of services by the universities “with incentives to autonomous institutions for adjustmtltlt”. states tile brief in order “to be practicable,

Although the financial outlook for Ontario’s universities is not bright, UW President Dr. Burt Matthews feels that government funding nevertheless has the power to alleviate the situation somewhat. “It’s a question of ‘how dark is the gloom?‘,” Dr. Matthews stated in response to questions concerning the latest OCUA brief. “If we have an ll”h increase in funding from the government (the current rate of inflation) the gloom would not be so great as it would be at 5I/Z% .” h e s a i d . Matthews noted that it was not the intent of the brief to indicate the paths that the universities would want to pursue, but

speaks to the legislature

h;lr. Speaker: Further to my announcement of last week that a committee will be formed to study the future role of the universities i17 Ontario, I am pleased to report that the- terms of reference as well as membership of the committee have beer7 worked out. There are five areas that the committee will consider. These are: --. -to develop a public statement of objectives for Ontario universities in the 1~80s expressed in operational terms; -to relate the cost of meeting these objectives to fundir7g Jewels; -to consider modifications to the funding mechanism which would provide . appropriate processes to encourage voJur7tary institutiona/ adjustments and inter-institutional cooperation to meet these objectives; -to define more cJcarJy the appropriate joint roles of the invidividual institutions, the CounciJ of Or7tar.io Universities, the Ontario Council 017 University Affairs and the Government of Ontario; and -to recommend such other policy changes as arc: judged JikeJy to improve the ability of the Ontario universities to meet the agreed upon objectives, As far as the makeup of the committee is concerr7ed. I have chosen persons with both system-wide and institutional kr7,owJedge and experience to serve as members. They were choseti on these grounds rather than to represent specia J i17teres t groups. Thh mem”bers of the commidtee will be: Mr R ] Butler-Secretary, Managenlent Board of Cabinet; Dr G E ConneJJ--President, University of Western Ontario; Professor J S Dupie-University of Toronto; DR H K Fisher-Deputy Minister, Ministry of Educatio17 and Ministry of Colleges and UniverVice-President, sities; Miss M Han7iJton -Executive Thon7son Newspaper Limited; Dr G A HarrowerPresident.

Onttirio CounciJ on U17iversity Affairs. Dr Fisher will serve as Chairman of theCommittee. In addirior7, Dr E J Monahan will serve as a resource person to the cor77mittee, and the Ministry of CoJJeges and Universities will provide a secretariat.

dark is the gloom?” rather “to indicate the options open” to the inwell as stitutions, as possible way’s in which the universities and. government could talk on an informal basis about the “dim2nsions of our problems since one thing that determines this is funding”. When asked about the entrepreneurial model mentioned in the brief, whereby the universities would sell some of their services, Dr. Matthews mentioned that UW was doing so at the present time to some extent, using as examples computer time, and to a larger extent, research expertise, as well as self-funded diploma programmes for industrial managers. “The opportunities for universities to make big relative to their money,

maintained.” Even if this is the case, however, “the magnitude of cant in IrorJ 011 /)[lgc 9 total budgets in this manner, are not great, however.” he noted. As far as the idea of a centralized authority for planning is concerned, Matthews felt that this was, “noi a black and white since changes in issue” academic institutions range from minor to very large. Matthews also noted that, with regard to the incentives offered for universities to reduce and adapt their programmes to lower funding “the incentive would have to be a tremendously large one in relative terms, not just monetary costs”, since phasing out programmes would make necessary loss of personnel. “This is a real disincentive,” Matthews stated. “It would require quite a hi-t of money to compensafe.” Marg Sanderson

mundane by numbers of peo‘ple telling Janet that she’s a slut-between 50 and 100 times during the of a go-minute course movie. Even the worst comedians know enough to not tell the same joke that many times in a row. The story is a sensuous sculpture of subtlety; it should be treated as such. I was at the stage show that fateful Tuesday night and I have to say that it was the most dynamic and exciting live production I’ve ever seen. The actors who “knew their roles too well” refreshingly created an exciting interpretation that had me once again laughing at those same old jokes (I wasn’t alone either). The stage show has renewed my interest in the Picture Show. I feel that once again I can bring my knees in tight and give that pelvic thrust with a sense of sincerity. Every time I see the movie now I will be able to relive the energy of the live production. It’s too bad that people sometimes feel so secure in what they’re used to that they fail to appreciate the attributes of something new and original. I wonder whether Rick Ferrabee’s criticism would have been more or less severe had the Centre-in-the-Square production fallen short of perfect. If I had a choice between the two presentations

Rocky Horror: a sensuous sculpture The Editor, Anyone who felt relieved of the disappointment of missing the live Rocky Horror Show after reading the Nov. 14 review, I would like to reconfirm that you did indeed miss a good one. I have seen the movie several times. The first, having been several years ago, just before it began to win widespread popularity, gave me a vague idea of what the story was about. I had heard the music quite a while before seeing the movie; it was this that caught my attention. In many ways, the story is irrelevant. The music, comedy, satire and sheer outrageousness are what attracted me, seeing it again and again. Unfortunately, as all good things must, the movie has been exploited. It has become a setting for the more demonstrative of our populace to vent their closeted tensions by yelling, screaming, throwing confetti, cards, toast, toilet paper, and yes, even themselves, at the silver screen. In Rocky Horror there is definitely a place for audience participation and the c I ev e I- interthat add new jections meanings to the script. I enjoy being silly sometimes too, but I don’t enjoy seeing something fun made

UraIlium:y -_ fush to riches4 ’ leaveswake of toxic ‘debris 1

A uranium esploration end m?bing boom centered in Northern Saskatchewan, is currently taking place in- Canada. A first boom came in the early 1950’s as a result of the nuclear: arms race, and the second began in-the early 7970’s when uranium prices were inflated by a price-fixing cartel. At present, six new mines are under construction, and the whole of Northern Sask tche wan is experiencing intensive explo 1 ation. ! Uranium mining in Northern Saskatchewan takes the form of- open pit and under&-ound mines. Once the uranium ore (or rock containing uranium) is taken out of the ground the uranium is extracted by processing the ore in a mill, where it is crushed,,ground down to a fine sand, and reacted with chemicals. Uranium ore in Northern Saskatchewan generally contains only a few tenths of a percent uranium. All the rest of the rock is unwanted, and therefore considered to be waste. In addition, huge quantities of unusable liquid by-products are produced in the milling process. Up-to 2000 pounds of waste waler for example are created to

Uranium exported to Soviet Union The uranium industry, or the “frontend” of the nuclear fuel chain, is of key importance in the debate over the pros and cons of nuclear power. The reason for this is that uranium is the raw material used to fuel the nuclear industry. Almost all uranium mined is used for either productionof nucIear,weapons or fuel for nuclear reactors, and negligible amounts are used for medical and industrial purposes. The exact propdrtions of these/different uses is unknown because military ,consumption is not made public. _ However, it is known that Canadian uranium from the Port Raduim, NWT mine, was used, in part, to fuel- he Hiroshima and the Nagasaki bombs, a?d that‘ Canadian uranium is being used by the French to fuel their regular nuclear weapons’ tests in the South Pacific. Over 90 per cent of Canadian uranium is exported. This means-that less than IO, per cent is used for the production of Canadian-consumed electricity. Most of the uranium is mined by American, British,, French and West -Get-r-pan companies. Canadian uranium is sold to the following countries: Belgium, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spaih, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States and West Germany. Further, according to J.W. Beare, Director of the Safeguards and Nudlear Materials Branch of the AECB, uranium has been sent to the Soviet Union for enrichment (a further step in: the processing for consumption by nuclear reactors). For example, in 1979 about 1000 tpnn& of uranium owned by the Canadian crown corporation Eldorado Nuclear Ltd. and the West German government-owned corporation Uranertz :$::a Ltd. was exPorted to the Soviet \

exceed water quality standards. In addition, the fact that the recent Dubyna Lake, and Key Lake mine proposals in Saska@ewan have included effluent’ releases which exceed water quality regulations for a variety of radioactive and non-radioactive substances further indicates that compliance with regulations is n$ taken seriously. . Government data show that levels of uranium, radium, iron, and copper in lakes and streams downstream from . the Beaverlodge mines all excess \concentrations for either, or both, suitability for human drinking water and aquatic life. As well, it is ‘stated by Menely Consultants of Saskatchewan that at the Key Lake mine, levels of arsenic are high enough to present a serious hazard.

-produce 1 pound of ‘!yellowcak~eY - the final product from a uranium mill. In recentyears there has been increasing concern over the health and environment effects of these wastes. It is now realized that while milling removes about 90% of the urbnium, few of the other radioactive materials are removed. In fact, 85% of the total radioactivity remains in the wastes, including almost all the radium and thorium. . Concern has arisen because radiation, even in low doses, may well be harmful to life forms. Critics of uranium mining argue that our actions today are creating environmental dangers that wil.1 last “forever”. Radionuclides are not the only hazardous component of mill wastes, however. Also of concern are heavy metals such as iron, copper and arsenic, which do hot decay but are always toxic. To date, precautions taken with solid mill wastes have been so mhimal that these wastes have even been used as construction fill material, whi,le liquid -wastes have been directly dumljed into lakes and streams. At Uranium City in Northern Saskatchewan,-.city streets, homes, and the local High School, Candu:High, have been built on radioactive mill wastes. In April, 1977, radiation levels in the school were 60 times higher than the “acceptable” limit set. by the Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB). Cn. an attempt to. solve the problem, .a venting system was installed in the building. ironically, the vents designed to decontaminate the school now release contaminants into a school ground tised by the students. , To deal with the problem of radiation in buildings construct.ed on mill wastes, the AECB established a clean up and decontamination program late in 1976. The program, according to a Globe and Mail article of March 19, 1980, h?> a budget of $4 .miIIion per year, and total costs are estimated to be in the range of $20 niillion. Of yet m&e concern than solid contaminants‘are the liquid wastes which have a greater impact on the surrounding envirbnment. The reason for this is that easily carried to liquid wastes ’ are locations far from the mine site. In Ndrthern Saskatchewan, contaminated water from the Beaverlodge mines flows into Lake Athabasca. From there, contaminants are able to flow down the Slave River, arid into the MacKenzie river which flows into the Arctic Ocean. (In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s Eldorado Nuclear reports that wastes from the Gunner Beaverlodge mill were dumped directly into Lake Athabasca.) ’ Streams’and lakes have long been ‘used to absorb pollutants. However, experience with pollution of the Great Lakes has taught us that a .water system is not infinite and can only deal with a finite quantity of pollutants. The risk of overloading a natural system is always present. To avoid this overload, surface water quality standards arid regulations #or radioactive and’ non-radioactive substances have been established. As with many industries, research by the B.C. Survival,-< Alliance has shown, that it is a. tradition ) within the uranium industry to grossly

At Fookes Lake, downstream from the Beaverlodge mines, iron levels are mdre than 7 times the level safe for fish (stated by the federal Environmental Prbtection Service to be .5 parts per million), and almost 15 times the level suitable for human drinking water (.3 parts per’ million - according to Health and Welfare Canada.). - Copper levels in Fookes Lake ire 6 times the level necessary to kill trout and, salmon (.03 parts per million’ - as determined by the Canadian Department of the Environment). At several points surrounding Fookes Lake, uranium concentrations are more than 100 concentration” for timkd the “ma?imum drinking water established by .Health and Welfasre Canada (set at 20 parts per billion). A further water quality problem is high i-acidity of waste water and mine drainage. Nero Lake for example, downstream from Eldorado Nucledr’s Beaverlodge operation, has been found by the Environmental Protection Service to have a pH‘ of 3.4, which is in the pH range of vinegar. The low pH is due to the production of sulfuric acid from oxidization of pyrite contained in mi!l wastes, combined ~ with the addition of large quantities of sulfuric acid in the milling process. A particular problem ‘with acidic wastes is that high acidity increases the solubility of radium, uranium, thorium, and bther heavy metals:+ Groundwater cont8minatio.n ’ is also a problem, though until recently it has‘ not been recognized by regulatory authorities. Water quality is. often judged by surface water /monitoring alone. This ignors the ground water seepage problem. Contamination of groundwater has been taking place for almos! 30 years, as common practice since the beginning of mining in the early 1950’s. accord&g to the Atomic Energy Control Board has been to simply dump

What is more, seepage-proof designs remain in the realm of unproven theory. It is well accepted among hydro-geologists that seepage cannot be eliminated over the short term let alone the long term./ Needless to say, there is a high degree of uncertainty with regard to the future of uranium mifie wastes. In short,-it can be stated that the current f.orm of uranium - dependent, northern development in Saskatchewan is based on the ‘fdistant cow principle” “the southerners get the milk and the northerners get the shit.” In the case of urqnium mining, the shit’ will be around for a long time, andthere’s more to come.

N.ative pebple - refugees Uraniuq mining in Northern Saskatchewan is a controversial issue. While the government is actively supporting the rapid expansion of existing mines and the construction of several new mines,* native land claims have not been settled and a group of people known as “uranium refugees” has emerged. To further express their concerns, community and- environmental groups ’ ’ thro’ughout Saskatchewan have boycotted the recent environmerital inquiry into the Key ;Lake, mine. The Saskatchewan iovernment strongly influences the uranium industry in its” province: as of March 1 1975 a revision in ‘the Saskatchewan Mineral Resources Act , requir_es all new exploration and ‘mining projects to offer up to 50 per. cent, participation to the provincial governmentowned corporation, Saskatchewan Mining ’ Development Corporation (SMAC). By 1978, SMAC was one of ten corporations accounting for 60 per cent of total Canadian exploration.

Even ,barring the possibility of- a catastrophe, due to the difficulty in eliminating seepage’, the underground site itself still has to be isolated from human use forever. The waste isolation problem can be regarded as “solved”, only when longterm. cotamination of an area is accepted Seepage-proof, waste isolation proposals are based on the theoiy that seepage in and out of a waste area can be eliminated by covering the top and bottom with an extremely low permeability material, thus preventing contamination of surface and groundwater. Even though waste “encapsulation” designs do exist, in the Canadian context there is a significant barrier to their implementation. in both the Ontario and Saskatchewan uranium mining areas, large volumes of low permeability material simply do not exist.

In 1979, according to their most recent . annual report, SMAC -was involved in about 240 exploration and development projects, only seven of w.hich they own 100 per cent. SMAC owns a percentage of five of the six mines under construction in Saskatchewan and one of the producing, . _ mines. . People questioning the present form of northern development in Saskatchewan,

.

in own lanid employee accommodations constructed, all under the name of “exploration”. For these reasons the inquiry was boycotted by community and environmental groups throughout Saskatchewan. When the Key Lake Inquiry opened in La ‘Ronge; a group of more than 50 people marched down Main Street demanding recognition of native rights and an end to uranium mining. The group of protesters was part of a “Caravan for Survival” that travelled from Regina to Saskatoon and Prince Albert, to publicize their concern over human rights violations by the government and uranium companies. To “record” the event, in Prince Albert, “camera men” equipped with long telephoto lenses were stationed on the roofs of buildings as was a video crew tin the street. - La Ronge, situated about half way up the province is the gateway point for northern uranium developments. Due to the uranium boom, -the population of the town has doubled to about 3,500. Not everyone is happy in La Ronge, however. Early this spri’ng a molatov cocktail was thrown through the front office window of Uraner’z Canada Ltd., a West German owned uranium exploration and mining company. The cocktail did not ignite but Uranerz reacted by spending over $10,000 on installing bullet proof glass. Uranerz owns 50 per cent of the Rabbit Lake mine and one-third of the Key-Lake mine.

and the uranium industry in particular,. have ,been given no meaningful way to voice their concerns, and often learn of mine developments ;if&er they are well into the construction phase. For example, the Saskatchewan government, in the late 1970’s granted AMOK, a large French Uranium Company, exploration leases in the Cliff Lake area. The first time the Indians became aware of this was when trees were being cut, trap lines being burnt, and in some cases, drilling taking place beside camps already in use. 1 ‘When they complained, the Save the North Committee of Northern Saskatchewan reports that the Native people were told they were trespassing. The Indians were forced to -move from their ancestral homes without any compensation or prior warning. These are the people who have refugees. _ become known as uranium . In an attempt to improve public-input, the government convened a board of inquiry to examine the most recently proposed mine - Key Lake. The board’s terms of reference did not allow it td consider aboriginal rights or land claims however, nor did the terms of reference give authority to stop the mine. More than a year before public environmental hearings began, the federal crown cor’poration Eldorado Nuclear Ltd., had made the last payment on its $95 million interest in the Key Lake mine. In addition, at least eight lakes were drained, a 200 kilometer road built into the site, and

Neil Young and Doves - Hawks Reprise -

Friday,

Hawks and Doves is probably not going to be as great a chart success as the last Neil Young album. But chart success has never been a measure of quality. And what we have here is the maturing of a first class musician and balladeer into something superb and lasting. On display - - also is the talent of a committed roc‘k and roller. One must agree with the man who says that “LIVE MUSIC IS BETTER” bumper stickers should be issued. Peter Talking Remain Sire

Just the other day I was playing air-guitar to the tune of “Up Around the Bend”within the confines of some ancient battlements. I had. been playing undisturbed for quite some hours when all of a sudden there was a tremendous thundering crash. Looking over my shoulder and past the stack of humungus Fender amps I observed my faithful clone, Craigsmere, standing atop the shattered bathroom door, gasping\for his breath, and clutching a blue covered record album. It bore a long white star and the words, “NEIL YOUNG - HAWKS AND DOVES”. Unhesitatingly I turned off the amplifiers, placed the guitar back in its rack, and mounted the contents of said blue cover on the Gramophone. What followed was a saga in galactic history (or so it seemed to the members of CUPE Local 1287). For Neil Young - Hawks and Doves is another in a long series of returns to musical roots - accoustic folk and barroom, electric Country and Western. And as usual it is a sharp turn away from the style of the previous release. However he has retained one element from “Rust Never Sleeps”: format. One side is strictly acoustic guitar, the other strictly electric. Side 1 opens with “Stayin’ Power” and “Coastline”, two Rhythm and Blues tunes that seem to come from the On The Beach/Tonite”s 73e Night period. While neither is particularly memorable, both feature some very competent fiddle playing by one Rufus Thibodeaux. Melancholy is blasted away promptly however by the force of “Union Man”, a twothat’s thumps-to-the-clap foot-stomper guaranteed to wake the neighbours up three floors down. If you don’t stand up and wardance to this one you are either a quadraplegic or possess a death certificate. “Union Man” is definitely alive and electric. Young has always been a master of distortion and reverb with his black Gibson guitar, and he’s just proven it again. “Comin’ Apart At Every Nail” keeps the adrenaline and accurately pumping, describes everyman’s dilemma: “It’s awful hard to find a job. On one side the government, the other the mob.” The title cut “Hawks And Doves” displays Young’s willingness to discuss his constant personal and musical metamorphosis. Played honky tonk, it not only reveals a changing individual but a changing world in which good is intertwined with bad, and country mingles’ . with rock. Perhaps the finest song on the album, both lyrically and melodically, is “The Old Homestead”. Found on Side 2, it is more than reminiscent of such long and winding ballads as “Last Trip To Tulsa”, “Ambulance Blues”, “Will To Love”, and “Thrasher”. Here lies a strange, surrealistic tale of a horseback rider on a cerebral journey through deepest, dark night. Along the way he encounters a shadow, a priest, and a prehistoric bird attempting to make a phone call. Hidden meanings and absurd allusions abound. There are two other songs from Side 2 that should not be allowed to go unmentioned. The first, “Lost In Space”, is somewhat Cat Stevenish (a change for Young), complete with mandolin sounds and Marine Munchkin backing vocals. It could in fact almost ‘be considered a nursery rhyme. The second, “Captain Kennedy”, must be old Neil’s first attempt at composing a sea chantey - and it succeeds too. Simple yet thoughtful, it is the sad story of how a young mariner’s father comes to lose his beloved schooner.

Heads in Light Records

An obvious semblance to Brian Eno’s style of music is well understood in the Talking Head’s latest, since Eno produced, wrote part of, and performed on Remain in the Light. His infectious musical philosophy permeates all the selections, finding roots in the saturation of rhythms prevalent in every cut. In David Byrne we find Eno’s second generation Bryan Ferry. The cloning is almost complete, save for the lack of Ferry’s flashy delivery of lyrics. Byrne performs in somber tones, judiciously rendering his vocals, for the most part, in a monotonic drone. AS for the actual lyrics, they are conspicuously cryptic, though not nonsensical. They offer a great deal of ambiguity, allowing the listener a free hand at interpreting them. The release is a milestone for Eno, and especially for the Talking Heads. A significant maturation has occurred in the Talking Head’s style. The’ bassist, Tina Weymouth, represents the most obvious example of this process. She displays a high degree of-competence, as well as confidence, in her performance. As for Eno, the album signifies a mollification in his conceptual and production style (bringing together his ambient music and Talking Heads); the result being a commercially viable form of his longstanding “Discreet Music”. As the “Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” was to Genesis-so will “Remain in Light” be to the Talking Heads. Ironically Eno has had a hand in both. This master of catalysis has, for a long time, been a major driving force on the progressive music scene. The completeness of this album tells why. Dan

Steely Dan Gaucho MCA

The masters have done it again. On their first album since 1976’s Aja, the elusive pair Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have summoned together wit and whimsy, added a liberal quantity of human nature, and topped it off with the biggest allstar cast of musicians this side of the Aleutians. The result: sweet ear candy. They do not give interviews; they do not tour; and in their eight year stint the only failure they have had is that of never having cut one bum note. A tall claim, but all too true for demi-gods Becker and Fagen. The sound they create is full, plush, expensively produced, and, best of all, available at your local record pusher for a fistful of dollars. It’s said that the closest thing to heaven is a crest of new-fallen snow (and I don’t ski). Well, I’ve got news, Gaucho rivals “the closest thing to heaven”. Paradise on plastic, Steely Dan’s newest is euphoria. Gaucho is classy - and more so, its lyrics are relevant in light of today’s affluent subculture, which we are asked to idolize. Donald Fagen, perennial lead vocalist, sings his cynical story, as though through the eyes of a rich, jaded uncle. Taking your hand, he leads you through smoke-filled rooms, past sweet-scented young men, and over the writhing bodies of insatiable starlets. The picture painted is surrealistic and conflicting. It is one of radiant beauty and’ desperate ugliness, not unlike entering the pearly gates and finding maggots. Hollywood, Perrier, Marina de1 Rey, and Cocaine. It’s a bittersweet, if not poignant view of “the land we love to love”, from the inside, a lot darker than The Eagles’ Hotel California. Steely Dan, with their smooth-as-satin - sound and their biting lyrics and their sixfigure production, have cut a gem (pun in-’ tended).

Decedsr

The musicians call-sheet looks like a veritable who’s who. Featured are (take a deep breath): Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Mike MacDonald (formerly of Steely Dan, Doobie Bros.), Rick Derringer, Jeff Porcaro (Toto), Rick Marotta (Peter Gabriel, et. al.), Tom Scott, Crusher Bennett, Rob Mounsc ?y, Chuck Rainey and so on, along with a score of superlative session, performers (Patti Austin, Randy Brecker,’ Michael Brecker, Steve Gadd, Steve Khan, etc. etc.). The indomitable duo (Becker/Fagen) continue to turn vinyl into gold. Put this baby on your Christmas list - and send it to yourself. I’ve already got my copy. The

Are you in the market for some oldfashioned dancing music? Do you like 4piece bands? If you answered yes to both, then have I got a record for you! The uery’best of the Mom & Dads is a new record for this group. It contains all of their greatest hits, including ‘ the one which skyrocketed them t’b international fame “The c Ranger Waltz”. The group has been together for many years and consists cf: Harold Hendren, an ex-meatcutter; Quentin Ratliff, who was once a truck driver; Doris Crow, an ex-cook; and Les Welch, who used to be a shipping clerk. They play drums and blocks, saxophone, piano, and accordian respectively. Just in case you’re interested, the youngest member is Ratliff, only 42. But ‘Mom’ is 72 years young. The group, as far as international success goes, is fairly young, touring outside North America from 1971. The music is purely instrumental, and performed quite well. It ranges in time from Golden Oldies like “Red Roses for a Blue Lady” to middle folk like “Bill Bailey” to almost recent writing like “Me and Bobby McGee.” As a dance record, this is magnificent! The types of dances are varied and the performance is as good as any band I’ve heard, especially considering the drop in sound quality caused by recording. The tempo is perfect and the music excellent. As a record to listen to, it is good, but it tends to have a hypnotic sameness, as does much 4Am-o

UNIVERSITY ROOMS WINTER

This is the first record of B.J. Thomas’ I’ve heard. It is composed almost entirely of gospel songs, the only exceptions being yet another rendition of “raindrops keep falling on my head” and a four-minute monologue by Thomas. The overall impression is one of mediocracy : Thomas appears to be just an average singer. He seems to be screaming at several points rather than singi 8! and his voice has little or no tone to it. He positively destroys the only well-inown song on this record, although this wy in part be due to poor arrangement. l The songs are not very well performed on the average, with the exception of “Walkin’ on a Cloud” and “The Faith that Comes from You” which were quite good, although not very well-performed by Thomas. He often gives the impression that he is singing through a glass of water in the former. This album was taped live in the Dallas Convention Theatre, by the way, and it suffers from crowd noise in spots. This naturally detracts from the overall sound quality. Thomas’ first song is “Nothin’ could be Better,” which is fairly well performed by Thomas. It is followed by “Mr. Business-man” which is most unusual in flavour to say the least. The next song is the unavoidable “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head”. “Mighty Clouds of Joy”, which follows, is poor and monotonous. Next is “Walking on a Cloud” and “Doctor God”, the latter being the first gospel song Thomas recorded (it sounds like it too), as the sound and lyrics are facile and boring. The flip side contains “Hallelujah Thank You Jesus” which is not badly performed, but still slightly boring and repitious, and “Jesus Hearted People” which is good, considering the limitations of Thomas’ voice. Thomas, at this point, goes into a monologue about his conversion (a “personal statement” -enough said). He follows it by “The Faith That Comes From You” which, as mentioned above, is quite sincere and well sung. However, he spoils this effect with his last song “Everything works out for the best”. The final effect is one of monotony in both tempo and theme. Bruce

Watefloo has long been known for its prowess in basketball; it has built B in that sport reputation results: a based on tradition constructed on consistency pver the years. Now Waterloo is building a name for itself in another area of athletic endeavour-vqlleyball. But, whereas the basketball phenomenon has been limited to the men’s team, the volleyball development is happening to the men’s and women’s teams alike. Both volleyball teams have ambitious, agressive coaches who look beyond winning their respective league titles. They look national recogtowards nition and eventually national championships. Dave Husson, in his first yetir as coach of the men’s team, says Waterloo is already known as a good school. Not volleyball content with that however, Husson wants to establish a dynasty at UW. Certainly a necessary ingredient in the achieveof such dynastic ment ambitions is a coach who is with the, team for ‘a long time. The‘Warriors though, are on their third coach in five years. This team is currently three and one in their young season (they play 10 league games in all), and are tied with Laurier in second place. Their only loss has been to the first place Gryphons of Guelph. Waterloo plays in ‘the six-team OUAA-West along with Brock, WestMcMaster, Laurier ern,

spent learning “what the players can do.” Now, he “we’re trying to adds, refine the offence.” Much of that refinement, hopefully, wil-l-take place in tournament play. In addition to York’s invitational, Husson will be taking his charges to Penn State in January. Once there, he hopes to lay some of the’ groundwork to establish a Waterloo invitational, a pre-requisite to any dynastic ambitions since it will give UW a higher profile than it has at the present time. The invitational Waterloo would take place next year [ 1981-82).

The future looks bright for the Warriors, since they lose no one to graduation this year, and have more depth than last * year’s league-champion team. and Guelph. All their league games are played against these teams although tournaments give them wider experience. One such is York’s Excalibur tournament in January where UW will ace Alberta (ranked first in Canada), Winnipeg (third), York (fourth), Dalhousie (seventh) and Penn State seventh in the (ranked US). Unfortunately, .Husson has lost many of his starters from last year, a year which saw UW win the regular season before losing. to Western in the finals. Playing with nine freshmen can have its drawbacks (consistency among them), but Husson feels, nevertheless, he has more a depth than last year, and a brighter future since he loses no one to graduation. This year he has 12 players who can pnd will to last play 9 compared year’s eight. Husson is satisfied with his progress so far. The first part of the year was

As for this year, “a realistic goal is to qualify for the OUAA’s, to finish second to Guelph,” Husson said. Beyond that, Husson smiled, and added, “I think we can beat Guelph.” Pat Davis, the veteran the Athena coach of volleyball team, is looking very sprightly this year and the reason may be linked to her team, as dynamic a group of

This year’s meeting saw Ottawa win but for the first time in a long while they lost one game of the match. For the Athenas, that first step was a big one. Jacob Arseneault

He has constantly been called upon to play 4045 minutes a game, often in streaks of 5 to 6 minutes at a time, yet he responds with the same steady performance, game after game. He plays the point on the power play, and kills penalties in addition to his regular double shifts. Paul’s biggest influence comes in his leadership role with the team.

that they are improving and are working harder than ever to attain that goal. A great part of this attitude is due to Paul’s direction of his teammates and the respect they have for him.
