,-News / UW and report The University of Waterloo has been faced with a set of recommendations from Z%e Report of The Committee on the Future Role of Universities in Ontario which will force the University to be responsible and accountable for its administration practices. The university has responded to these proposals with a report to the Board of Governorsand the Senate. Accessibility of the University to all kinds of students is one of the issues raised by the report. Of high priority to the committee are students, faculty, and staff who have disabilities which range from blindness to confinement to wheelchairs. UW reports that it is continuing to improve its facilities and services for the disabled on campus and is also working on a program to integrate disabled students into the co-operative program. The question of access to the University is also raised concerning students enrolled in correspondence programs. The University uses a format of audio-taped lectures to supplement text material and has boasted an enrollment of 1,300 students in 1980-81. Visa-student enrolment poses another question of student accessibility. The total percentages of full-time students admitted to UW on student visas in fall 1980 were 4.30% undergraduates and 24.0% graduates. Of these figures, the report states, “We do not regard these percentages as excessive; however, we continue to monitor the number and quality of foreign students admitted.‘*

Part of the reason for the low percentage of foreign students is that they cannot obtain work permits toqualify for the popular co-op programs. Therefore the University believes that qualified Canadian students are not being displaced by foreign students. Research, research funds, and equipment were other issues raised by the Report to the Board of Governors and Senate on the University’s Position or Performance. The report suggests that “adequate resources should be provided to ensure the maintenance in the universities of a strong base for both basic and applied The University research.” states that it is “striving to improve Canada’s position in the world.”

through its unique co-operative programs and contract research activities. UW has a research grant income which totaled $8,221,853in 1980-8 1, which was a 22% increase over the previous year. With the aid of research funds UW has set up several research centres, such as The



Centre for Process Development, The Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, The Centre for Information Theory, and The Centre for Accounting Research and Education. In addition to these already established centres, the Uni-; versity has plans for an

Simonis Federation president Wim Simonis is proud of what he has done over the summer term. Three areas he has been working in are improving society relations, getting student transit rates and coordinating co-op housing. On August -8 and 9, the Federation sponsored an On Campus Organizing Conference. Representatives from various societies, faculty and the. Federation attended. According to Simonis, “the turnout was much higher than expected .” Forty-five students from almost every society and college and twenty university officials (including a brief appearance by President Doug Wright) attended workshops designed to improve on campus relations. Another conference is planned for November. Simonis plans to s.ubmit to council the creation of two new federation positions - a Society Liaison Officer with Clay Melnik being considered and a Residence Association Liaison Officer for which Paul Grenier is being considered. The two would chair ad hoc



industrial research and development park on campus, which would house research laboratories of established companies, and provide startup accommodation for new enterprises as well as additional space for university contract research and other developments.

Controversy and media attention on the subject of Ontario universities offering first party scholarships to intercollegiate athletes has stirred Uw’s President, Dr. Douglas Wright, into havinga report prepared for the Senate and the Board of Governors to explain the issue.

A better way ’ One very frequent misconception people have about rejecting ‘the consumer lifestyle is the notion that one must either accept technology as a lump sum including all of the negative aspects, or deny it all and live a caveman-like existence. Waterloo Public Interest Research Group’s (WPIRG) first Brown Bag Seminar, held this past Thursday featured Joe Umanetz, a high-school teacher and innovator, who gave a talk entitled “Building with Wind and Sun” which related the story of the construction of his home. Umanetz stressed that it’s not an “either - or” proposiOne can have the tion. comforts of technology without paying the high prices usually demanded. Umanetz has demonstrated the truth of the statement with events of his own life. Five years ago, Umanetz decided he did not want to continue living the typical consumption oriented life. He wanted to be self-sufficient, but in such a way as to maximize the positive impact of his lifestyle on future generations. In addition, Umanetz did not want to pay the costs demanded by large manufacturing companies, be they in terms of money or the environment. As a matter of ethics he wanted as much control over his own life as possible. ,

still look committees in- charge of setting up the next conference and of holding a review of the Federation and its structure. Simonis states he welcomes such a review of the Federation structure, but he cautions that it is “often the people, not the structure that makes things work.” Little was accomplished in getting reduced rates for students on the transit system. Simonis wants to co-ordinate his efforts with Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College, neither of which were open during the summer. However, even with these two now in session, he says “It looks like it’s going to beleft up to us to do most of the work.” The transit commission did publish a report at the end of the summer which shows that student orientated bus routes (such as numbers 7 and 8) are at least breaking even, if not making money, while suburb runs are run at a deficit. Thus, according to Simonis, “university students are actually subsidizing the bus system.” He hopes to use this as an

Since August the-Feds have had someone working on a computer programme designed to match co-op students with available housing in advance to their arrival on campus. They are also working with other universities to compile housing lists in other cities for the January and Summer terms. At theend of the summer a “Share the Moving Cost” board was developed in conjunction with the Rides Board in the Campus Centre. Poor advertising resulted in the board not being effectively used this term, but Simonis hopes it will become more useful in the future. Simonis hopes to “develop a feeling amongst Alumni members that they have something to offer” to co-op students. He hopes to gain their co-operation in introducing students to the towns where their workterms will be. Simonis will be __ enlisting their aid at the annual general meeting of Alumni during Homecoming week. Cathy McBride

A student’s 0 1Zfiii hard long hours, much work University students work longer hours than the average nine-to-five employee. This is part of the findings of a series of studies done by a group of UW graduate students under the direction of Drs. Jiri Zuzanek and David Ng, department of Recreation. The studies began in the fall of 1977 and continued in 1979 and 1980. The average student in first or second year Arts puts in a 48 hour week, attending lecture, reading, writing essays, and so forth. The average HKLS student puts in a 52 hour week. Average Math students work 56 hours per week and the average Engineering student up , to67hours... or close to ten hours a day, seven days a week. “These studies were carefully done,” Dr. Zuzanek reports. “A total of 270 students were surveyed. They were asked to keep time budgets - records as to what they did with their time every 10 minutes throughout an entire day. We secured time budgetscoveringa total of8 10 student days or three complete days for each student surveyed.” The studies were begun by Steve Shane, who has since graduated. More recently, Steve James, a graduate student, and Peter Schaefer, Cheryl Ross and Wendy McNutt, undergrads, / have been involved. The studies show university students put in hours far in excess of the 35 and 40 hour weeks that are standard in business and industry. But they still manage to find-considerable time between 32 and 34 hours a week - for leisure activities such as playing sports, watching TV, listening to records, partying and so forth. This is relatively easy for students who live in university residences because they spend little or no time on such things as grocery shopping, cooking, washing dishes or cleaning. Students

who room in the community, or rent apartments or town houses, may spend much more time on such “housekeeping” functions. They report their days seem terribly busy. “Some students get married and take on additional obligations,” Dr. Zuzanek says. “These have an impact. But marks don’t drop off; perhaps married students learn to organize themselves better.” He says the surveys show third and fourth year engineering students are able to cut back their work week considerably.. . from67 hours to about 54. Arts and HKLS students work about the same number of hours in upper years as they did in first and second years, though arts students are more apt to become involved in some form of part-time work. Arts students were found to average six hours a week in parttime jobs in their third and fourth years; HKLS students work about 2.4 hours a week on the average. Engineering students do virtually no outside work. “We found university students are by and large pretty hard working,” says Dr. Zuzanek, who would like to see these studies go on. “But they don’t work as consistently as office or factory workers. You may see a student go a whole day, on occasion, without working very much. Next day though, he or she will pile up an enormous number of hours. But it averages out to a fairly stiff work load.” The UW researchers found there doesn’t seem to be much difference between male and female students. “The common wisdom is’that females study more than males,” says Dr. Zuzanek, “and this seems to be true for first and second year students; females work one hour a week more than their male counterparts. However when

they get into their third and fourth years the pattern changes and the males spend just a little more time working than do the females.” He says that while the primary focus of the research was to determine just how hard students work and how much leisure time they have, the researchers looked at a number of other areas. “For example,” he says, “we asked our subjects what they thought of the workloads in faculties other than their own. HKLS students seem to feel that students in engineering, mathematics and optometry have heavier work loads. Engineering students felt their work loads are the heaviest except for the optometry students. Environmental studies and arts students are aware that they spend less time working than do students in other faculties.“. The five leisure activities that seem to occupy most of the students’ free time are: 1) watching TV (about eight hours a week, or from 20 to 25 per cent of total free time); 2) conversations with friends (one hour per day); 3) participation in active sports and physical exercise (half an hour a day); 4) partying and going out to pubs (half an hour a day); and 5) simple resting. HKLS students seem to be more heavily engaged in active sports and partying; engineering students are the most active in university club<, societies and interest groups; arts students outdo others in reading and conversation; math students spend more time in unspecified “free” ways. “Certain things about the survey may raise various questions,” comments Dr. Zuzanek. “For instance, the amount of time students spend reading books for pleasure is rather small.. . only48 minutesa week. Moreover, if it weren’t for arts students the average would only be about 25 minutes a week. This is far less than the amount of time they spend at cards or other table games which totals 40 minutes a week.” The students were also asked about salary expectations after graduation. “We were amazed at how accurate they are with respect to their salary expectations,” Dr. Zuzanek says. “Engineering students, for instance, feel they will be able to earn about $20,500 a year right after graduation, and we are informed this is about right. Human kinetics and leisure studies students expect about $14,500; arts students expect about $13,700 and th’ is is about right.” Students were asked not only what salaries they expected, but also what salaries they would consider fair and reasonable. The engineers expect toearn more than what they really believe is “fair” the survey showed. HKLS students, on the other hand, think that about $16,000 would be fair but they expect to get about $1,500 a year less than that amount. Male students seem more confident they will be able to get a job that relates to their




5 -

university educations than do females. They also are less willing to accept a lower-than-fair salary than are females. Females are not only willing to accept less, they also expect less. The students were asked if they are satisfied with the education they are getting at Waterloo. Between 82 and 83 percent say they are; they would enrol1 at Waterloo and in the same faculty and department, if they had to do it all over again. Students in the faculty of human kinetics and leisure studies expressed most satisfaction with the social life and the general educational backgrounds they are getting, at Waterloo; engineering students expressed most satisfaction with their career prospects, though theyareless happy about the social life than students in some of the other faculties. Students were asked what kind of financial help they are concerned about: loans, scholarships, grants or jobs. They are interested in loans . . . especially the students who expect to earn good incomes after graduation and who feel confident about paying them off. ’ The surveys show it is the topstudents(high grade averages) who do the most studying. Among the top engineering students, for instance - those whose marks average 85 per cent or higher - the tendency is to study 68 hours a week or more. Students whoare barely able to get by or who don’t in fact succeed average 51 hours a week of study. Interestingly, the under achievers - the students who have the ability to get higher marks but who are content to just “get by”, do the least amount of work. . .48 hours per week on the average. HKLS students are interested in continuing their studies after graduation, seeking masters’ and PhD degrees. Engineers are less interested, possibly because they expect to get very well paying jobs with the bachelors’ degrees. “We had a number of other questions that are somewhat apart from the main thrust of the survey,” says Dr. Zuzanek. “For instance, we asked what subjects the students were least well prepared in, prior to coming to university. They listed these in the following order: 1) English; 2) Mathematics; 3) physics and chemistry; and 4) ‘other things’.” They asked students living off campus if they would walk to and from campus alone in the venings (after dark). Fifty per cent of the 8”emale respondents said they would hesitate to do so, fearing for their safety; 25 per cent of the males also said they would hesitate to do SO. Dr. Zuzanek says he hasn’t heard of any other study of this nature among Canatian university students. He has heard of some in Qthe United States but finds they have beendone in such a way that the results cannot be easily compared. He says he and Dr. Ng are interested in continuing these studies partly because carrying them out forms a useful learning Y experience for 1 their students.

As the price of gasoline continues to climb more interest is / being shown towards the development of alternative fuels. Far from the glamour of solar space stations or the‘airs’ of bio-mass, lies the lowly black lump-coal. Large Canadian reserves and economical prices make it an ideal alternative. Coal does not have the problem of being difficult to handle. This is due to its large size compared to the energy contained in it. To extract the energy from coal by burning not only produces noxious smells but diminishes the chances of catching fish in Northern Ontario -acid rain.

According to J. A. Brzozowski, Chairman of the Department of Computing Science, the department needs at least ten new faculty members to accomodate the influx . Brzozowski states that the department has “borrowed”

fourteen people - grad students, visiting professors, and part-time faculty - fro “wherever it could get them”, in order to alleviate the stress. This number addes to the 37 regular faculty members in their teaching of the 51 undergraduate courses that Computer Science offers. He admits that the situation is “not healthy” for students or the department and constitutes a crisis. Waterloo (amongst other universities) is having a great

s Arts prez changes The Arts Student Union (ASU) is faced with an upheaval in its executive positions. Kevin McInnis, elected to the position of president las winter term, resigned from that post on the morning of September 18. McInnis stated that the reason for his resignation was “a minor problem but I don’t want to talk about it.” President pro-tern, Murray Spackman (previously vicepresident), maintains that MC Innis’ main reason for resigning was academic. According to Spackman, McInnis did not wish his reasons to be known as he does not want his chances of winning a later election ruined. A letter concerning the transfer of authority issued by Spackman stated that “The President of the Arts Student Union resigned for reasons of a delicate and undisclosed nature.” Spackman, under the ASU constitution (article V, section 6, subsection 1) assumes the role of the presidency. As this shift in positions occurred during the fall term, the constitution states that “ Council shall (a) appoint the most qualified councillor to the position of interim Vice President, and (b) at the beginning of the winter term, Council shall call an executive

by-election (article V, section 6, subsection ii). Contrary to the constitution, Spackman states that it is optional whether or not council appoints a Vice-President. Spackman also maintains that “I can’t find in the constitution where the (office of) VicePresident has to be filled”. “Technically, I don’t see why we have to have one (a VicePresident)“, he asserted.

A Waterloo co-op student who graduates with a B. Math will start with an average salary of $22,500. To supplement incomes about one third of the computer science faculty are doing outside contract and consulting work at the expense of research. “They ought to be able to survive with just one job,” says Brzozowski.

Some observations of the report were: * About 250 new Ph.D.s graduated in 1979 as compared with 1300 positions seeking Ph.

The Computer Science Department is looking to industry and business for help, according to Brzozowski. He believes that, although supportive, the university has done all it can for the program, given the tight budgetary constraints placed on it by the provincial government. Industry has already helped U W by providing some equipment for research work, which Brzozowski believes has been given for services already rendered. He hopes that they will contribute to Watfund (UW’s corporate and alumni fundraising program)and that that money can be used to buy state of the art equipment and support research work.

Electronic music isnot a new phenomenon. European bands such as Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk have been playing synthesizer-dominated music for the past decade. Then, in the mid ‘70’s, along came DISCO with all its silliness, and the credibility of electronic music wept down the drain. Not that it was all bad; people like David Bowie, Brian Eno, and Giorgio Moroder (all Europeans) were 1 making innovative, interesting electronic and disco music. \ It’s just that the good stuff got lost in the tidal wave of junk’ disco. Now that the disco craze is all but dead, electronic music . is starting to regain some of its respectibility; Most of the good synth-music of to&y is coming from (youguessed it)’ Europe. One of the better new bands is an English outfit _. called Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD). The core of*OMD is the team of Paul Humphreys and Andy McCluskey. They recorded their first, self&led album as a duo, ‘with additional musicians on a couple of. cuts. The release of their second LP, Organization, saw the addition of percussionist Malcolm Holmes as a full-time 4 band member.


The music of OMD combines the best qualities of earlier synth-music. Humphreys and McCluskey know how to use the synthesizer as a musical instrument, not just as a producer of strange sounds. Their use of rhythm programming and electronic pert ussion ‘is innovative, varied, and doesn’t become too tedious. -

What I like best about OMD k what they decided not to do:’ there are no 20 minute muzak-noodlings that make - : Tangerine Dream hard to listen to, and they don’t use that hideous thump-thump-thump and stupid lyrics that make American disco impossible to listen to. The end result is music that is melodic, has good rhythm, and doesnr overpower the listener. You can dance to it, or just sit and i listen to it 2- it’s excellent for both. -- Electronic music will be an important art form in the .,’ 1980’s, but right now there are few bands that are doing it well consistently. Orchestral Manoeuvres is one of them. ’ Orchestral Manoeu,vre3- is playing at Bingeman Park, Kitchener, on Saturday October 3. Tickets are $6.50 (for Fed members) and $7.50 (others).

Helping Yourself to Health Care “Not all healing comes from your doctors’ hands, most health care is done by the individual”, notes Connie Clement, community health worker in Toronto, and speaker at WPIRG’s Brown Bag Seminar on Thursday, October 1st at 12:30 pm in the Campus Centre Room 135 at the University of Waterloo. Focusing on the strategies that people can apply to help themselves in health and to improve the treatment they receive from medical practitioners, Ms. Clement offers positive alternatives to dependence only on the hospital and specialist. In a time when medical fees are skyrocketing and every consumer faces extra “user fees”, _ learning about improved self-help health care will be good news indeed.

I’ve read your book: Elephant &Ice with much interest, says the red-haired to the Sun-Man poet. I’ve also seen your poem: The Upside-Down Elephant who was a Poet. The elephant image seems to rampage throughout your work.


Here’s a little something for you, she continues, handing over a small box wrapped in sea-green paper with Santa Claus romping all over it. The bow looked close to Indian Ocean green. Thank you, says the poet, unwrapping the gift anxiously to discover a tiny crystal elephant basking in the translucent light of its own body. Pressing, the poet asks: what do you think of my poetry? Look again at the-elephant as it stands on your writing desk. He did. =s A very lopsided elephant was staring

Death I By Amber When he was younger he used to satre into a lump of amber that sat on the knick-knack shelf in the living room. Somehow he never connected the beautiful winged creature within the , I I mindless, crawling things he crushed idly on picnics, and he Iwould spend hours examining it from all angles, turning it this ’ way and that, watching the image distorted by bubbles and imperfections in the ancient resin. He%would try to imagine the feelings of the proud, doomed insect as it realized its plight, its vain struggles to get free, its mounting panic as the liquid drew it down. But the hard chitinous planes of its face offered no clues, and he soon learned that there was no room within the tiny brain for the noble emotions he had ascribed to it. There were other diversions, other obsessions, and the lump of amber receeded, as all knick-knacks must, into tissue-wrapped limbo in a shoebox at the back of some hall closet. She spent seven days in his life, seven nights of punctuation at a time when it seemed his existence would always be an ungrammatical stream of endless words, pounding with breakneck benzedrine haste through reams of meaningless adjectives, hasty polysyllabic mouthfuls. Writing frantically past midnight at the kitchen table in his basement apartment, an array of coloured pens and pencils laid out in geometric precision, he had mailed off pieces of his life to people he had no right to know, and she, bless her soul, had caught some of them. Their only real communication had been through those letters, desperate attempts to break out of the grey dimension he machine as he sat clasping her at the kitchen table: a young inhabited, into a world where delightful tangents are commongoldenhaired girl and boy, they split the room into solemn and place and clever literary allusions need not be debased by carefree halves.

What actually happened was more discontinuous: a star on her cheek, eyes closed and hands clasped in her lap. He baby carriage rolling down a hill towards a rising drawbridge, tried to think of the words that came to him so easily in the lone abrupt darkness as a projector out of control self-destructs, a coolness of his bed, but none presented themselves. So, fuge played by a mad, demented fiddler, fingers flashing melodramatic to the end, he kissed her once gently, whispered nimbly over his instrument, stilled by a single, echoing goodbye, and arose, duffel coat swirling cinematically, to pass out of the sliding .door and close it ever-so firmly behind him. gunshot He knows he will never see her again; their bodies may meet, “I’m not very skilled in the mechanics of romance,” he mumbled as they sat awkwardly angular on a small couch, and but she won’t be her and he won’t be him, and at best a slightly she laughed and brushed away half-a-hundred fears in knifepoignant memory will hang in the air between them, twisting edge fantasties, afternoon classroom daydream.s of like a wraith of smoke trying to escape.

.-The Arts Rotten




It is an ill-kept secret that record critics don’t have to buy the albums they review; they’re mailed to the paper free of charge by various companies. Unfortunately, this means that anyone wanting to get the new Supertramp album gratis is out of luck; the companies don’t waste time promoting releases they know are going to sell. It’s the obscure items like the first album by Ziggy Schwartz and the Clap from Vicki that need promotion. These unwanted albums pile up on the desks of Arts editors all across the country, especially those raised on the ethic that it is a sin to throw unused goods away. Periodically they become too much of a menace to navigation, and some poor staffer is assigned the thankless job of doing the whole lot in one article. So it was that on last Saturday morning Ifound myself in my basement with a pair of headphones, a bottle of cheap brandy, and the latest crop of fresh faces. I had neither the time nor the alchohol to listen to all of them, so I made myself a deal that I would listen to cuts that appeared interesting untillhad heard two badones, at which point I’d switch to the nextjalbum. Pouring an initial shot of brandy into my china teacup, I uncapped my pen and was all set to go. various various various

obscure bands silly titles presumptuous labels

My first selection was Minotaur, which didn’t count as it was only 21 seconds long. Hardly an auspicious start. Tyger Ray featured a riff that was stolen from Rush; ! tried to place it but the rest of the song kept interfering, something about a place the singer didn’t want to stay. Mirror started out as the usual half-assed epic that this sort of band plays when their hands get tired, so when it exploded into power chording halfway through, I had a good excuse to take it off. The record sailed over my head, bounced off the back wall, and landed intact on the floor. Ah, these new inferior albums. When I first played Frisbee with the second Carpenters album, it

The first record was by Tygers of Pan Tang, an album called Spellbound (MCA). The name appealed to my sense of pretentiousness, but turning over the cover I saw that the group was composed of five Rot ky Burnette clones, all with hair below their shoulders. It was evident that they were cashing in on the current heavy-metal resurgence in England. Actually, there have always been heavy-metal fans; it’s just that the success of Sid Vicious made innumerable garage bands realize that in the chaotic British music scene there is a market for anything, no matter how stupid.



I couldn’t resist the song titled Z Want You To Be The First. You guessed it. Things like this do not happen in real life and they certainly do not happen to me. They could have used this as the

crescent edges could tear great gouts of flesh from your handsand leave them blood-soaked mops. I finally had to resort to stretching Spellbound into an ellipse. The promo sheet slipped into the Dean Conn album (A & M) started out, “To look at him he’s been around. Blue jeans, worn boots, beach-boy blonde and a knowing look in his eye. Not tough, not soft, innocent, but . . . been around.” The song Z Could Be So Good To You promised the boasting I had expected from a beach-boy blonde, but contained a little too much begging to be dignified. We’re in This Love Together gave me an AMsummer feeling, with its bouncy, almost infectious melody, until I started listening to the lyricsat the end of the first refrain.

alchohol in me to figure out why he had stopped at two, and set about rectifying the situation. The Hungarian White Wine Romance seemed by far the most exotic title. “I have certain trepidations in regards to leaving YOU,” sang Bobby, and I was halfway through scribbling that down when I realized that all the lyrics were full of ten-dollar words. The joke was made weaker by the fact that I’ve had Hungarian white wine, and it’s awful. Side 2 was a wasteland, with song titles like I’m Sorry, It’s Too Late, It’s Ouer. The final cut was called Crazy Love (why does no one sing of sane love?) which I started to listen to, but took off when I realized I had heard Van Morrison do it a long time ago. A few good cracks on the cover of the table disposed of Bobby, and for good measure I defaced all the pictures of pretty women on the cover. Taffy McElroy had The Heartbreak Kid written beside her cover picture. She looked incapable of seriously damaging her own heart, let alone anyone else’s. Twenty-six people were credited as musicians, not counting God knows how many in the string section. Her voice had a slightly breathy quality caused by singing above her vocal range.

I settled for IStill Believe In Waltzes, which I last heard while speeding through Texas unable to reach the tuning dial on my car radio, but it lasted only 30seconds when Irealizedit wasn’t the AM hit version. The title song was written by Barry Gibb; I wanted to hear the old codger sing falsetto, but he didn’t. This album is still intact; I couldn’t be cruel to someone who’s so obviously going to die soon. The best for last, and just in time; the bottle was empty. The cover of Barbara Mandrel1 Live (MCA) features a closeup of BM herself, without the marginal distractions of her two sisters, faking an orgasm with the help of a microphone. On the shrinkwrap was a sticker saying “Entertainer of the Year”, although it was unclear which year they mean or even who ‘they’ were. I thought Billboard put an end to this nonsense when they crowned Diana Ross “Outstanding Female Entertainer of the Century.” Perhaps we should declare someone “Most Stupendous and Dazzling Performer of Any Age and Any Sex,“and shut everybody up.

Before the game ever started, the Warriors were at a disadvantage because of numerous injuries that kept Bill Riel, Paul Schreyer and Rich Adamson out of the game completely and hindered the performance of those remaining. Throughout the game the injury tally grew: one re-

sprained ankle, a concussion that took out an offensive lineman and pulled quadriceps that brought Tony Stajcer out of action. Rob Dobrick, cited by Coach Wally Delahey as “our best linebacker” also had to come out of the game when he tore ligaments. The Warriors who were left managed to hold the Lancers in .the first two quarters. Waterloo put their four points on the board early with a wide field goal attempt, and a successful field goal by Chel-

Cross country Waterloo’s cross country Athenas opened their season on an encouraging note; a team victory and an individual championship at the Royal Military College Invitational in Kingston last Saturday. Starting slowly and running together, Lana Marjama and Lisa Amsden moved up. through the field until Lana pulled away in the end to win in 19 min., 58 sec. ahead of Queen’s Fiona Duckette, with Amsden taking third place. Other Athenas in the race were Jacquie Gibson and Patti Moore (sixth and seventh respectively). Nicole Durocher and Rhonda Bell took ninth and tenth respectively, and Debbie Salzman took twelfth place. This race, which involved more than three miles of struggle against the wind from Lake Ontario and the hills around Fort Henry, was only the first part of a novel triathon. That evening the team was required to survive a gruelling Queen’s track party and follow it up, still half asleep, next morning with a run through the marshes at Catarqui Conservation Area.

Warriors UW rugby coach Derek Humprhey has cited lack of experience’as the main reason for the junior varsity’s 41 - 3 loss to Queen’s Golden Gaels last Saturday. Despite keeping Queen’s confined to their own end for the first few minutes and scoring, a field goal, the Warriors fell apart from then on. After that field goal Queen’s led all the way. They scored


mecki. In the second quarter however, the Lancers made good after latching onto a fumble to take a lead they only improved upon. Two converted touchdowns and two field goals finished the Lancer tally and gave them a healthy win. The Warriors defense appeared able throughout the game, holding up against the Windsor attack, but offensively the Warriors floundered. Even when the efforts of Dom Ruggieri and Terrie


Next weekend the season begins to take serious shape with the York Invitational at York University. It will be a first chance to survey the teams from Guelph and York as well as showing Queen’s closer to their full strength. These are the teams, along with Western, that figure alongside Waterloo in the battle for medal places at the OWIAA Championships in Sudbury, Octber 3 1. The meet at York will also present a first opportunity; to see several of the promising Athena rookies run since most were unable to be at RMC due to previous committments. The new field includes Andrea Prazmowski, a su-ten minute 3000 meter run;ler from Oshawa; Lisa Campeens bf Kitchener; Ulrike Zugelder of King City; Cathy Somers of Mississauga and Maureen Anglin of Toronto. Nicole Durocher of Vankleek Hill who had a promising run at RMC is also a rookie. How Waterloo fares this year in cross country and indoor track will depend largely on the contribution of the new Athenas.

Moving your body can feel really go,od after busting your brains in search of the ever<elusive solution to “the big -praem.” The positive physical and psychological effects of exercise have been widely written abdut. Unfortunately, many people overextend themselves the first few times out, often resulting in-a visit to the Athletic Injury Clinic. The more physical gctivity ydu engage in, the more opportunities you have to get injured. However, certain preventative measures can be taken to reduce your chances of getting hurt. Overuse injuries are 1the most common type.- They are caused by doing too much, too soon, too fast. Often the persbn cannot recall the exact moment the injury occurred. These injuries result from repeated- stresses on the body over time, eventually leading to a noticeable injury. Usually the victims are musclerand tendons. Musqle and tendon fibres may tear when placed under a stress they are unaccustomed tb, resulting in a reaction called inflammation. .

Inflammation is the process by which -the body repairs damaged tissue. Enzymes are released by the injured cells to initiate t,he inflammatory process. These- enzymes cause increased permeability of blood vessel walls, resulting in decreased ability of the vessels to retain fluid, blood cells, and serum (plasma plus white _blood cells). These substances leak out into surrounding tissues and the area begins to Swell. The white blood cells be_ i to repair the damage IT y engulfing debris, such ai dead cells in the. area. In addit&n, fibrinogen is released to cause clotting of blood and lymph fluid that has escaped from ruptured capillaries and lymphatic vessels. This clotting prevents further insult to damaged tissues. In most cases, more inflammation occurs than is needed to repair ‘the damage, leading to an excessive build-up of fluid in the area. When this fluid pressed against nerve endings, pain results. ’ Tg prevent overuse injuries, begin- activity gradually ai a slow pace and for a short time period. As these workouts become more comfortable, increase the intensity and duration slightly, slowing down again if you begin to tire or , hurt. These gradual increases toward your goal will give a good result and will help prevent injuries. If you have beea training a ! while and feel yqu are’ fit, but begin to notice aches and pains, consider other factors \. which, predispase the body to injury., For example, if you have. recently changed your shoes or the surface you run or play dn, , the stresses on the body are altered. These changes affect not only the feet and ankles, but the legs, knees, hips and back as well. Considering that each foot strikes the ground hundreds of times, or even thousands, during any sport inyolving

running, these stresses quickly J add up. Activity should be temporarily reduced so the body can gradually adapt to change. Also, check to see if your footwear is worn. If so, it is not likely providing the support your body needs for exercise. s Keep in mind that the principle of graduql increases in duration and pace applies to the trained as well as the untrained participant. If you are used, to running eight minute miles but decide to try a six minute pace one day when you feel like you have the world by the tajl, you may find yourself hurting the next morning. It is possible to overtrain. If ydu work out hard every day, your body never has a chance to recover from the stresses of exercise, and overuse )symptoms.,are likely to develop. The _ best strategy is to have lighter workouts interspread with your heavier days. Have . you begun an additional physical diversion recently? If so, you may feel sore due to the overall increase in physical activity. When plagued by the overuse -syndrome, the best cure is either rest or reduced activity, depending on the sever&y of the injury. Be sure to ice the area after. any activity since cold constricts the blood vessels in the area and less fluid will leak into the surrounding tissues. i Gradually increase activity ’ only after pain’ has subsided.

Cooling down with light jogging and stretching after your workout is also important. This gradual stoppage of activity prevents blood from pooling in the lower limbs (which would lead to a decrease in blood returning to the heart and placing strain on it) and removes byproducts of exercise, such as lactate, from the muscles via circulation, preventing stiffness. If you become a victim of an acute injury, it is important to get ice on it immediately to constrict blood vessels and slow down inflammation. Do not massage the injury or attempt to “run it off’, as this increases circulation to the area, compounding the problem of excess inflammation. Use a wet towel filled with ice and strap it on the area with a tensor bandage. The compression provided by the tensor will help to control swelling. If no ice is available, apply a cold, wet tensor and immerse the injured site in cold

sleeping, to prevent stress on the circulatory system. Keep ice on the area for only 10 - 15 minutes at a time. After 10 - 15 minutes, a vasadilation response will occur in the area, to prevent excess cooling of the tissues. The result is increased blood in the area, which you do not want. ‘Therefore, remove the ice for 10 - 15 minutes, then apply it again. Repeat this treatment as often as possible for a couple of days. Elevating the injured limb will also aid in decreasing blood flow to the problem site. In summation, the .key is Ice Compression, and Elevation (ICE). If you are in doubt as to the severity of an injury, summon medical aid, such as hospital Emergency or an ambulance. Therapy should begin on the acutely injured area as . soon as possible.
