Federation of Students
OFS forum yields little feedback J
Few people who were in the second floor lounge of the Math and Computer Building Wednesday even noticed that a political event was going on. Or at least that is the way it watching students seemed read books, do homework, and eat, as Wim Simonis, Federation of Students President, and Bob Elliott, Federation Vice President, argued the pros and cons of membership in the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS). Simonis is openly critical of OFS and is an advocate of withdrawing from the organizatiorL. Elliott is chairperson for the Yes for OFS committee. Both were taking part in the first of a series of general informational meetings being held to promote discussion on the upcoming OFS referendum to be held November 10. Simonis emphasized that, “the students at the University of Waterloo have not been represented at all by the OFS.” He qualified the statement by saying that Wilfrid Laurier which is not a University, member of OFS, has had more meetings with Premier William Davis in the past three years than has OFS.
Elliott contended that OFS was a necessary and valuable “The march organization. (meaning, the Day of Protest march at Queen’s Park this past Thursday) adds to the total package the government will see,” he said, adding that OFS is an “excellent” research group that has completed 55 research projects. Staff salaries make up 59.9% of OFS’budget according to Elliott which compares with the 58.0% that he says Waterloo’s student federation is spending on its employees. Simonis countered by asking the audience to look at the services they were getting from both OFS and the Federation. Elliott concluded his statement urging students that the most important thingforthem to do above all else was to be informed of the issues at hand. Simonis ended by saying that Waterloo should be, “getting away from some of the politcal bullshit of the past few years,‘* and that Waterloo had never gotten more than token responses from OFS. The two then fielded half a dozen questions from the largely unresponsive audience before ending the meeting. Peter Saracino
Nuke referendum Total Honest in Nuclear Knowledge (T.H.I.N.K.), a Waterloo safe energy group, will be holding a referendum on the question of nuclear power on April 24th, in an unspecified Kitchener ward. The group says that the aim of this project is first to educate the members of the group and then the people in the designated ward on nuclear power issues. To this end, (T.H.I.N.K.) wants to canvass each home in the ward three times. In addition, one of the aims is to win a vote on this issue to show that people are concerned about the implications of nuclear energy. The group is seeking fifty volunteers who are willing to help in the canvas&g and the project in general. The volunteer work would involve attending and participating in four workshop training sessions during the months of January and February and canvassing sixty homes three times during the months of March and April, 1982. If you are interested please call either Dave Porter at 744-4972 or Dave Assmann at 884-2547 (CKMS), or 8849342. Julie George
Food could be better Food served at Conrad Grebel College could be directed more towards students’ tastes,’ according to Lorna President of the College’s Student Schwartzentruber, Council. In a recgnt student council meeting, residents of the college met with the head cook, Enid Gilbert, concerning the quality of the food. Schwartzentruber stated that the meeting was “to open communication lines”. According to Schwartzentruber, students were “suggesting things they’d like to see, how they’d like them cooked. Things like cutting down on sugar, more salads.” Schwartzentruber stated that Gilbert responded well to the suggestions and asked about the sorts of dishes the students liked. “We feel good about the service we get, and they (the cooks) are sensitive to our comments”, Schwartzentruber explained. “I think the food is better (than in the past), there’s more variety. She (Gilbert) tries new things, new casseroles”, said one resident. Gilbert became head cook as of May of this year. Grebel is the only church college that has an independent food service. Anna Lehn

Ethics committee Incidences of sexual harrassment, abuse of authority, and misuse of record confidentiality have become issues on many campuses in the past year. Heightened interest in the ethics of these situations prompted former University of Waterloo President Matthews to initiate the formation of an ad hoc Committee to Recommend a Policy for Ethical Behaviour. Procedure in this area had not previously existed, requiring the formation of this type of committee.
The ten member committee comprised of faculty, staff and students was initally culled from various sources. President Matthews approached Mike McDonald to chair this committee and he accepted. To date, the committee has been seeking informal suggestions and documentation of areas requiring ethics policy, and although the response has been less than expected, two areas of concern have been singled out.

Midwives One Women’s Week event which attracted a number of participants was midwife Margaret Hess’s presentation on the birth process. Over 35 people turned out and, when at the beginning of the session Hess asked some attendees why they had come, most said that they ha=d come because they were planning on having children sometime themselties and were interested in the home birth alternative. Hess began with a rundown on the physiology of birth, with some comment on how home births differ from hospital births. For instance, in a hospital birth when the baby’s head is about to emerge from the vagina, it is common to make a cut (episiotomy) in the epidural tissue so as to avoid having the tissue tear during the infant’s passage. A midwife would take a different approach to this problem. In fact, they don’t see it as a problem at all! It has been found that, in fact, it is better for the tissue to tear if necessary than for it to be cut, because if it tears it will tear along the line of least resistance, avoiding tearing nerves, and tearing the tissue only as much as is needed. As well, a mother at a home birth attended by a midwife virtually never tears. The midwives work as a team, and during this part of the birth process one of the attendants massages the epidural tissue with oils, which assists the muscles in stretching to accommodate the baby’s head.
an alternative Another way in which home birth differs from most hospital births is that the midwife spends a lot of time with the couple during the, pregnancy so as to establish a rapport. As well, the woman has the baby at home surrounded by her friends and family. She has the time and comfort to relax and to flow with the birth process. In contrast, a hospital birth is often like an assembly line process, with the woe&n hooked up to machines, injected with drugs to speed up or slow down labour and, increasingly often in this country and the United States, subjected to unnecessary caesarean sections. In a home birth, everyone present gives to the mother and baby. In a hospital birth, the procedures are often for the convenience of the doctor. However, Hess emphasized that the most important factor for a woman to consider when deciding where and how to give birth is what situation she would be most comfortable with. While in many hospitals the birth process is becoming increasingly mechanized, there are also some in which it is becoming increasingly humane. As well, the attitudes of doctors vary widely. It is important for prospective parents to talk to their doctor so as to develop a clear understanding with the physician. Though any midwife will agree that births with potential problems should occur in hospitals, a midwife is perfectly equipped to handle a
pregnancy (with the exception of certain kinds of lab work) and birth of a mother with no contra-indications for home birth. Unfortunately, even if a woman decides that a home birth is what she tiants, she can’t always have one. No midwife will work without being associated with a doctor - to do lab work and, in the unlikely event of a complication, to admit the mother to hospital. But it is difficult to find doctors-- who will be associated with home births. Doing home births is not economically feasible for most doctors, because of the time involved during which they cannot be at their office, seeing other patients. As well, there is pressure from their colleagues, for whatever reasons, to not do home births. In addition, midwives are not licensed in Canada, with the exception of some remote areas where there are no doctors. In these areas the midwives practise and collect fees from provincial hospital insurance. However, as soon as a doctor moves into the area, the midwives lose this standing. In the more populated areas of Canada, a woman has the right to invite whomever she wants into her home to assist her at a birth, but a midwife cannot open an office and charge a set fee. In addition, there is a slight risk that, if something does happen to the mother or the baby, the midwife and/or the parents might be charged with ne-
to MDs gligence. Indeed, one of the reasons a midwife spends a lot of time with the couple before the birth is to create a spiritual understanding of shared re-
sponsibility. Midwives also cannot legally carry prescription drugs which are necessary for the safety of mother or child in an emergency situation. If a midwife is arrested and found to be carrying these drugs, she can be charged with practising medicine without a license. Canada is‘ behind almost every other country in its attitude toward midwives and home birth. In England, home birth is the rule for normal pregnancies and in the United States, each state makes its own regulations to deal with midwifery. In most states, they are much more supportive of midwives than they are here in Canada.
ganizing to have this changed, but it is a long hard process,
as the medical are such a power-
ful lobby. Hess feels that if the change comes, it will be
because of economics. In the case of a normal birth, the simplicity of a home biith attended by a midwife and by the friends and family/is much less expensive than a hospital birth where the mother is attended by highly paid staff using highly technical equipment. K&en Yearlstqn

In recent weeks, because of the federal government’s threatened cutbacks of the Established Program Financing grants, the possibility of the doubling of tuition fees for foreign students, U. of T. President Ham’s urging of substantial tuition increases, and finally our own embarrassing controversy (artificially induced by our sandbox President, more interested in kicking revengeful sand in the eyes of the OFS thanin tackling more relevant problems), the question of post-secondary education’ funding and accessibility has once again returned to the limelight. It seems to me that three central issues can be distilled from the raucous but diffuse debate. These are, first, to maintain adequate funding to universities to retain their viability, if not their vitality, in such a manner so as to, secondly, assure fair and universal accessibility to post secondary education for those with the requisite ability, whiIe at the same time insuring that, thirdly, educational institutions retain a modicum of autonomy from government. There are those who argue that in ordertoachieve these goals one must increase the user fees of the students who attend the universities and reduce the contributions of the government. If these people win the day, as it appears they will, this foul autumn weather we are experiencing is only the beginning of a long winter of discontent for those concerned about the health and accessibility of our academic institutions. The pseudo-logic of the Tories and their apologists goes as follows: the pre-requisite for a healthy university system is a healthy economy, which is in turn dependent upon the magical panacea of the balanced budget. Cutbacks in social services, by far the largest budgetary expenditure, are necessary to bring about a balanced budget and besides, students should by rights pay a significant portion of the costs of their education because they benefit from it in the form of higher paying and / securer jobs. Professor Ham can agree with this argument, so deceptively convincing, by contending that a reduction in the contribution from government means universities become more autonomous. But what is so obviously wrong with this facile logic is that social services expenditures are not the roots of Ontario’s deficit. Rather, it has been our government’s refusal to tax our resource sector adequately, as other provinces such as Quebec and Saskatchewan have. The

deficit in Ontario can be argued to be the result not of excess expenditure, but of a poverty of revenue, a poverty self-inflicted by the government of Ontario whose creed of laissez-faire (that is, let them do whatever they want with our trees and minerals, we don’t give a damn), forbids them from asking their friends on Bay St. to contribute what they should to the province in which they do business. The way to balance the budget is not to close this hospital or that university, or to double to tuition of the student from the third world, but to double the tax on companies like Into who take the profits garnered from Ontario’s generously lenient tax system and invest it back in the third world to exploit the cheap labour that the visa student’s compatriots haplessly provide. And what can be said of Professor Ham’s argument that by reducing the government’s contribution from 85 to 75 per cent of the cost of a student’s education, universities will gain autonomy from government? I fail to see what significant difference 10% can possibly make, except to make it more difficult for those with modest incomes to attend university or college. People of this creed also argue, finally, that since some select people benefit from a university education, they should help pay for it. In this they are correct, except that they have mistakenly identified the students themselves as the prime beneficiaries of the university system. It is the private sector, that hires highly and expensively trained computer programmers, engineers, economists, and industrial psychologists that benefits most from the university system. We at Waterloo, vainglorious of the success of our coop programme, should see this most clearly. Our recently held convocation ceremonies, echoing the medieval heritage of the university, are no longer pleasant anachronisms to massage our pretensions to scholarliness, but a farce of what a university education means today. We are not prepared for theacademicgown but for the three piece suit and white shoes of the business world. Our studies prepare us for the sterile but efficient maze of interview chambers, where we are absorved into the business world. The university is no longer a haven for critics of society, nor a centre where reformers of society exchange their views, but has become a machine that produces highly but largely docile specialized, highly competent, technocrats and bureaucrats, the cogs of modern society.

But besides lamenting the decline of the traditional idea of a university, we can at least use the fact of the university’s position as the hand-maiden of business to arrest the physical decline of universities. Why not ask the enterprises that hire graduates to help pay a greater portion of the cost of their training? If IBM, for example, a major employer in the co-op programme, wants to use U. of W. as a training ground for its employees, it should have to pay for it. Obviously this can’t be done through a payment from each company that hires a graduate, but it can be done through shifting more of the tax burden on to the corporate sector and spending the increased revenues on education and other social services. Suchanincrease wou Id not amount to an assault on “free enterprise,” but would be a legitimate user fee to be payed by those who benefit from universities. Many devotees to the idea that businesses should be allowed to operate with little obligation to the society from which they earn their profits will argue that such a user fee for business is a subversive “make-the-rich-pay” ploy. But it is founded on two sacred principles of free enterprise: FAIR PAYMENT FOR SERVICES RENDERED; and SELF-INTEREST-for if the universities decline, no one will suffer more than Canadian business.

Talk about history repeating itself. . . the following
article was unearthed while rummaging through Imprint’s memorabilia collection. It appeared in the Chevron of May 15, 1969 (back in the days when students were students and radicals were radicals - and liberals were liberals). OUS (Ontario Union of Students) and CUS (Canadian Union of Students) were predecessors of OFS (Ontario Federation of Students) and NUS (National Union of Students) respectively. And both OUS and CUS went ‘hooves up’ too. “The more things change the more they”: cost Improve Stay the same Are the opiate of the people >I Eat raw lizards.
Council approves OUS withefrawal The Federation of Students has dropped out of the Ontario Union of Students. effective immediately. The federation’s student council. meeting may 3. adopted the suggestion of its executive and president, Tom Patterson, and sevevered relations. Although many Ontario campuses have left the Canadian Union of Students in the past year. Waterloo is the first out of OUS. Patterson, an OUS executive last year, blamed the ineffectiveness of the union for Waterloo’s disenchantment. “OUS doesn’t do much,” he said, “Partly because the provincial base is a weak one. Little is achieved by the provincial lobby because they keep getting put off to the federal government. In turn the federal government claims it’s provincial business. ” The leadership of OUS was not the problem. “They’ve done all they can,” Patterson said. The council accepted Patterson’s claim that the whole
question of responsibility for areas of concern to students has to be dealt with by one union, which is neither “national” or “provincial” in character. *‘Provincial unions lead to provincialism.” he said. Patterson denied that a tight budget passed recently was the reason for the withdrawal. However the question was first raised when Patterson’s new executive was drafting the budget. “There was $3300 for OUS and we started asking just what OUS was accomplishing.” Patterson and his executive are waiting to see what the proposed refounding convention of CUS will bring. “Council considered holding a referendum, but decided against it,” he said. “If we have a referendum on a revamped CUS, we may put the OUS question to the students then. Meanwhile we couldn’t hold a vote until October, which would screw up our budget and OUS’s too.”
Dancer iob a shock to applicants Interviews held in Needles Hall two weeks ago left some, women wondering what they were getting into, or out of, as the case may be. An advertisement placed in the October 16 issue of Imprint announced that women who, “feel young or attractive and can learn to dance,” had the chance of getting a part-time job. Angela Linseman, one of the people who applied for the job, was told during the interview she would be dancing in a wet Tshirt. Linseman was informed that she would not have to weara ‘wet T-shirt if she was offended by that aspect of her employment. Furthermore, the women hired were to dance at individual tables. Linseman said that ordinarily she would not have answered such an ambiguous ad but the fact that the ad was placed in Imprint and the interviews were to be held in Needles Hall lent the ad respectability. Tom Fitzgerald, who is in charge of graduate placement, received a call from “Entertainment Unlimited*‘, who wanted to conduct interviews for dancers. The inquiry sounded legitimate to Fitzgerald so he had the firm contact the Scheduling Department to arrange a time and place for the interviews. When asked why he did not inquire further into the nature of the firm or the kind of dancing, Fitzgerald said that he handles inquiries from 500 companies a year and that it is just not possible to screen the companies individually. Occasionally, mistakes are made and this firm, “Entertainment Unlimited” was one of these mistakes. As soon as Fitzgerald had received several phone calls complaining about the interviews, he said that he went down and asked the interviewers to leave. Brook Schneider, the financial manager of “Entertainment Unlimited” says that no one asked them to leave the hall. Schneider maintains that when applicants stopped arriving, he and the other interviewers simply left. Schneider said that the people who call his firm a “wet T-shirt operation” got the wrong idea from the interview. According to him, “Entertainment Unlimited’* is a company that has just started up; as yet, they have no fixed idea about what kind of dancing will be done within the broad realm of night-club dancing. Wet T-shirts was just one idea that was mentioned in the interviews. Schneider added that about eighteen peoplewereenthusiastic about the job whereas only six people were upset when the idea of ijancing with a wet T-shirt was brought up. All told, about forty people were interviewed, according to Schneider. When asked if he did not feel that the ad he placed in Imprint was ambiguous and misleading, Schneider answered a decisive no. Because the firm has not decided on the kind ofdancing they will be doing, they could not make the ad more specific, he says. Julie George

Take a sten through thedoor ofasupermarket and don’t look back. You are no longer under your own control. A booklet published by the Ontario Public Interest Research Group outlines the methods by which supermarkets manipulate consumers to increase profits. Called The Supermarket Tour Kit, it also educates people about issues such as corporate concentration, third world exploitation, and environmental and ecological effects of- our food policy. As soon as you are in the supermarket, the manipulation begins. The first thing you might notice is the control of traffic. You are forced into a pattern which usually begins with the produce section. This is because produce items spoil quickly and the stores wants to move them quickly. It also starts what executives term “the buying habit.” But these simple vegetables have a much bigger story to tell. Many are wrapped or packaged. Why? Plasticdoes not grow on trees, nor on vegetables. But the overpackaging prevents consumers from picking over the produce for the best buy, and they agree with the sterile image the store wishes to protect. But wait again. Most vegetables are imported.-They are imported from warm third world countries where the large corporations have huge intensively cultivated farms and a resident low wage labour force. Many countries where people are starving are actually net exporters of food. But since the items are luxury foods for the North American market, the subsistance wages of the third world labourers mean they do not benefit from the food they grow. In 1974, the booklet states, the governments of five Latin American banana producing countries tried to raise money for domestic development by introducing a tax of one dollar per box of bananas. But the three companies which control 70% of the world’s $2.5 billion banana trade, De1 Monte, United Brands, and Castle and Cook (Dole) united to smash the tax by letting tons of bananas rot on the docks by refusing to export them. In the end only three of the countries succeeded in levying any tax, and that was just 50~ per box. But the import of food has great domestic consequences. While the third world food may seem cheap, the ultimate price may be much,higher.
Canada has the potential to be a self-sufficient nation in food production. The more food we import, the more jobs we export. In 1977 British Columbia employed 67,000 workers in the food processing industry at a self-sufficiency rate of 43%. If that self-sufficiency was increased to65% it would create 19,000 new jobs. Farmland once lost can only be replaced with great difficulty. When it succumbs to urban sprawl it can not be reclaimed at all. When the majority of our food is grown in centralized regions such as California and Mexico we become more susceptible to large crop failures and food shortages as a result of local weather problems.
Horizontal integration includes buying out competitors. At one time De1 Monte- was in competition with Canadian Canners for the canned fruit and vegetable market. De1 Monte bought out Canadian canners, thus eliminating its major competition and gaining Canadian Canners major brand names of Aylmer and Henley for its own marketing use. To the consumer’s eye the competition still exists but in fact the choices have been virtually eliminated.
Among the food that isgrown here, OPIRG has shown that a few major companies control the seeds, fertilizer, processing facilities, and distribution mechanism, leaving the farmers’in the only risky part of the business. There are over 197 varieties of corn. But 7 1olo of all corn grown in North America comes from only six of the known varieties. This means that the loss of genetic variety makes the corn crop more and more susceptible to a major disaster from disease or pestulence. You may still cling to the beliefthat you havechoices to make to avoid the corporate biggies, but think again. On the shelf we may find the following brands of bread: Country Oven, Zehr’s, Deitrich, Weston’s, Wittich’s, 18 12, Stone Ground and Christie. What is apparently eight choices is really two, for all but Christie are baked and owned by Weston. The OPIRG booklet states that in Canada four companies control90% of the breakfast cerealmarket, and 58% of the meat slaughtering and processing market. The more companies grow, the more control they have over every aspect of the marketplace, which is in theory supposed to control them. Verticle integration includes buying out suppliers and distribution networks for morecompletecontrol. The example of bread cited earlier is still pertinent. Weston’s ownsdairies, Royaland Donlands; flour mills, SOS Lines and McCarthy Mills, and a sugar refinery, Westcane. It also owns the distributors, National Grocers and York Trading.
Even widely diverse products may come from the same corporate parentage. Standard Brands produces the following cornucopia of products: Magic baking powder, Fleischman’s margarine and corn oil, Blue Bonnet margarine, Planter’s. Beaver, and Pinetree nuts, Chipits chocolate chips, Oh Henry chocolate bars, Cherry Blossom, Glossettes, and Pot of Gold chocolates, Chase & Sanborn coffee, Tender Leaf tea, and the pet food brand names of Dr. Ballard, Miss Mew, Kennel Club, Husky, Derby and Burger Bits.
Looking at the supermarket shelf, these facts are illustrated, as the OPIRG booklet points out. A few large companies have a * lot of power affecting our choices on how we feed ourselves.
Do you feel trapped by the big money, psychological manipulation of the supermarket? Run for the door, and note on your way out that the last aisle usually contains such impulse items as plants. They figure that by the time you get to theend of your odyssey through their shelves that you won’t care about spending a little more on a high profit item such as a plant. In fact one Safeway store manager was chastised by the company executive for selling plants with yellow ribbons at inflated prices as a welcome home for the U. S. citizens who had been held in Iran. The philosophy followed in this OPIRG publication is one of provision of information. The forty six page booklet contains fact after fact to substantiate the argument that people have little power over the choices they make in feeding themselves. With such information you can make some real choices, like quitting the supermarket.

“When you meet the friendliest DeoDle vou have ever , ’ . known, who introduce you to the most loving group of people you’ve ever encountered. and vou find the leader to be the most inspired, car)ng, compassionate and understanding person you’ve ever met, and then you learn that the cause of the group is something you neverdared hope could be accomplished, and all of this sounds too good to be,true - it probably is too good to be true! Don’t give up your education, your hopes and ambitions to follow a rainbow.” -deannieMills, Survivor-~oneshmvn,Guyana Over three million young people, the majority being university and college students, I’ have fallen victim to one of North America’s most extensive social phenomena known as the cult movement. The cult members credit the growth of cults to a spiritual rebirth and closeness to God, whereas, those who have escaped the cu1t.s claim highly sophisticated mind control techniques are the source behind the success of ‘ cult recruitment. The . most alarming, information on the growing cult membership is the type of people they are recruiting. I‘The kind of people cults want are middle to upper middle class kids with a college or university education between the ages of 18 25 years old and who are going through some change in life,” explained Christine Demkowitz, a former member of The Way International, a cult that can boast a following of over 40,000 members. The power and membership of the cults is., growing daily in the United States and are now becoming a strong force in Canada. Although there are no definite statistics on cult membership, an. -article in a+ Qinoinnati magazine estimated Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church at about 30,000 U.S. followers; the Hare Krishnas with approximately 10,000; the Children of God and the _, Scientologists both with membership in the thousands. These cults have been singled out as the strongest and most dangerous cults. The Way International has often escaped the negativity that the other cults receive from the media despite its 40,000 membershipLand its definite “cultist” activities focusing on mind control. “Part of the reason that The Way has been successful at selling itself to many as a Biological Research Centre is due to slick promotional brochures and color movies painting idyllic pictures of cult members studying at Way College campuses in Indiana and Kansas, hiking on Way retreats in Colorado and New Mexico, or jogging at the International headquarters’ 147-acre farm in New Knoxville near Cincinnati.” Said a parent recently, after visiting his daughter at The Way’s Rome City, Indiana Campus: “It all looks so wholesome.” Demkowjtz explained the reason for the college and university student’s vulnerability to the recruitment techniques of the cults. “Most college and university students are experiencing some sort of change which makes them highly susceptible- to the cults.” She listed ,the move,from high school to university, leaving home and exam periods as transitions that make students highly sus- ceptible. “It is a very transient stage and the cults prey on that. They also want people with money, they go for the stereotyped all American boy or girl,” explained Demkowitz. Although most university students feel they are too intelligent to fall into the cult’s trap, psychologists disagree saying that the majority of cult members are intelligent, idealistic young people lured by professions of love and the illusion of perfection in an imperfect world. Demkowitz explained that The Way International is just beginning to recruit in Canada’s primary cities such as Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Edmonton. “The Way International is a very sophisticated organization,” warned_ Demkowitz. “They are in Toronto in a big push and their Rock of Ages is coming up soon which is their main festival where they have 15 - 20,000 people attend.”
Demkowitz explained that at the Rock of Ages held in the U.S., speakers and musical bands combine their talents to make the weekend a super hype session where they get a lot of money and they get a lot of people to commit their lives to The’Way International. \ “it’s amazing! I have seen kids go in there who. A just want to go to a m&festival and at the end of the week they call up their parents for money that will allow them to go on a one year recruiting program. At this point they stop going to school, quit their jobs and go W.O.W. which is short for their one year recruiting program cal\d Word Over the World? Christine never gave her life to The Way International although she might have if her mother had not rescued her during her one’ year recruiting program. Christine was the ideal prey for the cults. After graduating from Western University in May 1980 with a degree in physical education, ’ -N : Christine moved&t&Toronto where she got a part time job selling lottery-tickets. Christine was definitely in a transient stage living in a new city, with all of its unknown surroundings, away from her friends and trying to get by on a part time job. The fact that Chris knew very little about cults added to her already high, susceptibility to recruitment. Christine said she was _approached and -recruited by “two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.” They introduced themselves as positive young people and after talking with Christine for a while they asked her if she wanted to go out with them for a beer that night. The girl was from Vancouver and the boy was a graduate from a Canadian university. The following day the girl asked Chris out to a coffee house where Chris got her first exposure to the fact that her new acquaintances were involved in some kind of reliaious orqanization. “The coffee house consisted of acouple of song, and some skits, something you might find in high school or any other church function,” said Chris. Although >Chris felt a strangeness about the new group of people she was with, she could not quite place them, and becausetheywereso friendly she had no reason to doubt them. --, “They were so nice and at the worst they were harmless; no matter what I thought them, I did not think they were harmful at all. We played sports‘ together, we went to the beach and went dancing,” said Chris. Christine began to trust the group and became increasingly involved with them. They were so nice, they seemed to have a direction in life and they had a lot of answers to a lot of questions,” said Chris. Christine was introduced to the cult after her friends convinced her to attend a half hour lecture call PFAL (Po,wer for Abundant Living.) Christine sat through the half hour seminar that turned out-to be an entire evening of songs and testimonies about how this class had changed people’s lives. “You know the old, ‘I was an alcoholic and now that I have taken the PFAL class I am a wonderful and upstanding citizen in the corn- ~ munity,’ ” said Chris. The half hour lecture was actually only the first half hour of a 36 hour course called PEAL. “This 36 hour course is The Way’s main #if Pop - Classical indoctrination and by the end it teaches you + SPECIAL ORDERS how to speak in tongues.

-_ To the E4itor: The Muslim Students’ Association (MSA) at the University of Waterloo finds that Aziz Chikhani’s Letter to the Editor, Imprint-October 23, 198 1 contains serious misrepresentation of facts. 1) Chikhani’s statement “In response to Mr. Hazem Raafat’s comments, I would like to remind him and others that no moslem can accuse another moslem like Mr. Sadat of being unislamic,. . .judging persons is God’s responsibility” is unfounded, as (i) these are not Mr. H. Raafat’s comments, but the official stand of the MSA, as clearly stated in the mentioned article of October 9, also that of the Muslim Society of Waterloo-Wellington Counties,
(ii) we thought a person at Chikhani’s level of education would be more careful and objective than he showed, as there is a big difference between calling someone unislamic because of his actions, and being out of Islam. However, both are from the authority of a Muslim tojudge according to the rulesset by his Almighty Allah and his prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Probably the misunderstanding is,due to the fact that A. Chikhani himself is not a muslim, he is an egyptian copt. However he should not expose himself to talk about Islam, not to mention distinguishing between extremist and reasonable ideas from an Islamic perspective, without having the fundamental knowledge. According to, his understand ing of our Religion a Muslim cannot judge another muslim

if he kills purposely for example, of being unislamic. Since this is left as God’s responsibility, we wonder what kind of corrupted society is A. Chikhani wishing. 2) Chikhani’s statement “President Sadat, Egypt’s great leader, .. .. that is why”, contradicts most of what we have read in western news media. Few examples can be cited to show the “greatness” of the late tyrant. (i) “in the end, if observers thought he Sadat) was losing his grip with last month’s draconian purge and his irrational rages at press conferences later, they could only shrug with one of his closedassociates: “No one ever sees his real face.““. MacLean’s October 19,1981, pp. 36. (ii) “Sadat personalized his quarrel with Saudi Arabia, and it became a mater of personal pride”, TIME, October 19,1981, pp. 31. 3) Chikhani’s statement
“Extremist ideas expressed in Mr. Ferrabee’s article do not represent the views of the large majority of Egyptians”, again this can be answered using a few quotations from western news media. (i) “Many people in Cairo expressed less outrage over the assassination than over the week’s cancellation of movies, soccer games and regular television programming (including the regular series “Dallas”)“, NEWSWEEK, October 19, 1981, pp. 37. (ii) “Along the highway, only a few hundred keening mourners chanted slogans such as “To paradise, Sadat”, and held aloft Sadat’s portrait. The demonstration appeared to have been encouraged by the government for the benefit of foreigners attending the funeral”, NEWSWEEK, October 19, 1981, pp. 37. (iii) “Others said the public yas barred (from Sadat’s funeral) because so many
Egyptians were indifferent to Mr. Sadat”, NEW YORK ,TIMES, October 11,198l. (iv) “Sadat’s pro-Israeli, pro-US stance created for the army, as for most Egyptians, a crisis of identity: were they pro-Arab or pro-Israeli? ProUS or pro-Muslim? Did they have an Islamic heritage or a Pharaonic one as Sadat was telling them in order to justify his 180-degree policy turn?” Muslim Students’ Association, University of Waterloo
Qut At Sea was let float away To the Editor: I was extremely irritated this week when I opened the Imprint to discover there was no coverage, whatsoever, of the production OUT AT SEA. This play was produced and performed by drama students. The script was well written, the actors were competent to very

good; the direction was detailed and unusual; the sets were appropriate for the script. So bad reports could not have been the factor in detrring a revie ver. The price of admission was free so financial considerations were absent. The production ran for a week so there is noexcusefor the non-attendence by a reviewer to at least one performance. I find it disheartening to learn that our student paper does not give high priority to student activities of the obvious magnitude and quality of OUT A SEA. Because it was of better quality than some productions tha have surfaced on campus, it is a shame that those unfortunate enough to have missed this play cannot at least have some idea of how it ‘came off. The Imprint was very remiss in not supporting this student activity byu not covering it. (A Continued on Page 10

Disarmament a Soviet plot To the Editor: In your October 23rd issue you printed an article entitled “Holding back World War Ill difficult” under the classification “News”. The article was, in fact, an opinion, and hence belonged on the edito-
rial page (or perhaps it should have been classified as an advertisement for Project Ploughshares). This paean to naivete starts out with the statement: “All over the world, people are campaigining to rid the world of nuclear weapons”. Honesty should have compelled the author to say: “Al.1 over the Free World, a vociferous minority of people are campaigning to rid the West of nuclear weapons”. The article then lists recent demonstrations in Bonn, Britain and other places to support this contention. lneluded in the list is the report of an alleged protest in East Germany by a group called the Federation of Evangelical Churches petitioning the East German government to begin unilateral disarmament. This is a cynical attempt to imply that the political pressure for disarmament in Eastern Europe is comparable to that in the West.
This is completely untrue. The campaign in the West is an organized, international movement that merely needs to summon enough support amongst the electorate to have its erroneous proposals enacted. Whatever support there is for disarmament in - the Soviet bloc is minute and powerless in comparison. The few free-thinkers in the East whose voices can be heard, such as Andrei Sakharov and the Charter 77 group in Czechoslovakia urge the West, indeed warn the West, not to disarm. The article then goes on to urge the creation of a“Nuclear Weapon Free Zone” (NWFZ) in Canada, and to prevent the transportation of American nuclear weapons through Canadian territory. I would -remind proponents of this idea, that Japan was a NWFZ - until August 6, 1945. But this proposal will I’m sure be
welcomed by the Kremlin (indeed, it probably originated there). There is nothing the Russians like better than to disrupt Western defences and to drive a wedge between America and its weak-kneed allies. In fact, psychological warfare and disinformation leaked to Western media is the Soviet Union’s most powerful weapon: a weapon it has been using continuously since the inception of the Communist state in 1917. The campaign for _ nuclear disarmamentis merely one manifestation of this fact. Idealistic and wellintentioned people are drawn into it because the constant barrage of Soviet propaganda on the Western psyche has produced a state of mind that is incapable of rational thought. Thus, for example, when North Vietnam attacked South Vietnam, and the United States nobly rushed to the aid of the victim (Good Samaritan?), the entire world exploded with indignation. (And so, the Americans disengaged, exhausted and ashamed, but hoping that the ceasefire agreement of 1973 would hold. It didn’t: the North Vietnamese generously Gave Peace a Chance, found it unsatisfying, and invaded and conquered the South in 1975.) The great irony is that Western Christians do not act to oppose their great and mortal enemy (as their bre-
thren, eg. in Poland, do), but instead, through organizations such as Project Ploughshares, prefer to serve the aims of Soviet Communism. Project Ploughshares takes its name from Isaiah 2:4: “They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore”. A beautiful idea. So is the idea that crime will disappear, or that disease will be conquered. Do you propose to bring these things about by abolishing policemen and doctors? T.

Reader annoyed by tactless tampers To the Editor: I am amazed that you allow annoying and offensive comments to appear on the Campus Events page. You have tactlessly tampered with material. Your submitted service page has become a disservice to several organizers. These anonymous stabs at campus groups and events are cowardly. If those responsible for them really wish to publicize their own narrowminded lack of integrity and understanding, they should do so at their own expense, in the editorial section of the paper, with their names beneath.

There has been little attention given to the cause of disarmament week here on campus, even though it is most certainly an issue of fundamental importance. In Europe, hundreds of thousands of
oviet arms race continues
So, at tremendous cost, the two countries continue the of the arms race -~ escalation (three new warheads each per day), and move the world closer to the ‘unparalleled catastrophe’ that Einstein foresaw. No rational person could possibly want to face a nuclear war and the subsequent collapse of our civili-
most definitely begin the attack. The other side will retaliate. The aggressor, in order to retain his initial advantage, must either respond or be seen as the loser -a position neither of the two super-powers would readily accept. Furthermore, millions of people will have perished and the human instinct for
ages in other areas. For example, the Russians, (even though they control the ‘bread-basket’ of Europe the Ukraine), have suffered tremendous grain shortages. None of the arguments favouring nuclear arms and their continued escalation can be seen as valid simply because each is based on an irrational and irresponsible policy. This policy is leading the world towards nuclear catastrophe. Every U.S. President since Dwight Eisenhower has publicly admitted that there could be no such a thing as victory in a nuclear war. Since the development of ‘The Bomb’, those in power have realised its awesome and horrifying implications. In 1944, the famous nuclear physicist Niels Bohr wrote President Roosevelt; “. .. A weapon of unparalleled power is being created which will completely change all future conditions of warfare... Unless some agreement (to control these new materials) can be obtained in due time, any temporary advantage, however great, may be outweighed by a perpetual menace to human society.”
demonstrators marched the streets of London, Paris, Rome and Bonn, calling for an end to the arms race. Here at home we seem content to watch like bored spectators as the future of our planet is decided in Washington and Moscow. This is hardly surprising however, when one considers that most Canadians have traditionally been inactive & uninterested. Since this week has been set aside for the pursuit of peace it is only appropriate that some attention be given to the issues at stake, in a feeble effdrt to convince someone - anyone - that the time for action is now. Well, here goes. At present, the United Nations Centre for Disarmament estimates there are probably forty thousand nuclear warheads in the world, and ninety-five per cent of these are controlled by the two world super-p0 wers. The U.S. is estimated to have over 9,200 strategic warheads while the Russians have at least 6,000. The total explosive capacity of all these warheads combined amounts to three tons of T.N.T. for every human on earth, or, if you wish, it is equivalent to about one million Hiroshima bombs. Try for a minute to envisage the Hiroshima nightmare and the loss of 200,000 lives; now extend that vision a millionfold and you will have begun to comprehend the reality. The cost of developing, maintaining, and deploying nuclear weapons is phenomenal and exact statistics are hard to find. If however, we examine the U.S. defense budget we may begin to see the ‘expense involved. President Carter’s proposed military budget for fiscal year 1982 was 196.4 billion dollars. Reagan has added another $52 billion to that bringing the total to almost $250 billion. Exact figures are not readily available for the Soviet Union but we must assume they are equally as staggering.
zation. Why then does the race continue? Let us briefly look at some reasons for its unabated progress. The U.S. claims that nuclear weapons act as a deterent to an aggressive Soviet nuclear military policy. Perhaps ironically, the Soviets make the same claim about the U.S. This is sheer lunacy and must be recognized as such. Conventional weapons may act as deterrents; but, if a nuclear bomb was considered protection, why is it necessary to have a first-strike weapon such as the neutron bomb or the cruise missile? Furthermore, even retaliatory or secondstrike warheads would only be needed in quantities large enough to ensure the aggressor’s country is destroyed. One Trident submarine can fire enough misslJes to depopulate most of I-ussia, and the U.S. has an entire fleet. To further exemplify the irrationality of a deterrent policy let us use as an example the MX system being developed in the States. Briefly, it centres on a process whereby missiles are shuffled between several hundred silos in order that the Soviets cannot be sure which silo contains a potential target. However, the Soviets, in an effort to deter this threat, have but one option - they must build a missile for each silo, thereby guaranteeing what they perceive to be an equilibrium. The result is simply a further escalation of arms build-up. Another argument used to support nuclear arms is the concept of a ‘limited nuclear engagement’. In recent weeks, the American president has said this was a definite possibility and has used it as a justification for the placement of more warheads in Europe. It was this argument which prompted the massive protest demonstrations in the northern European capitals. Consider the scenario wherein missiles fly between East-Block and Western European countries. One side will
revenge could easily take precedent over an appeal to rationality. The traditional argument favouring U.S. nuclear arms has been the menace of the Soviet Union; a fear enforced by the invasion of Afghanistan. It is very important to recognize some facts concerning this fear. The U.S. dropped the first atomic bomb which began the arms race of the last thirty-six years. At the time, the Russians were their allies yet, the Americans and the British withheld all nuclear arms information from them. Geographically, the Soviet Union is surrounded by NATO countries in Europe, and by China in Asia. Realistically, the Russians have far more to be worried about than do the Americans. In terms of the latest round of Cold War rhetoric, it was President Reagan and Secretary of State Haig who lashed out at the Soviets after their election. No, the Russians aren’t innocent but neither are they guilty of an unfounded desire for security. I am not defending their policy, rather the attempt is to illustrate that our fear of the Russians is not unlike their fear of us. Although it is not often voiced, another reason for the current arms race is centred on the premise that ‘big business’ finds it a profitable venture. Each time an incident arises which moves us closer to war the stock market receives a boost. For instance, after the invasion of Afghanistan, stocks in metals, or other warrelated companies, rose considerably. The corporations which build arms for their respective governments, do so at a considerable profit -that is no secret. The influence of these corporations on government policy is also no secret. Yet, what happens to those countries where stock-piling of weapons is reaching astronomical proportions. In the Soviet Union, a possible result has been drastic short-
that the SALT talks had was symbolic, and unfortunately, symbolic gestures which legitimize nuclear arms will not stop the arms race nor prevent the inevitable catastrophe awaiting us. The only hope lies in the people. If we oppose nuclear arms then we must voice our opinions. Through our active support of groups like Project Ploughshares, based on &this campus, we can affect government policy. Perhaps this will be shrugged aside as idealistic or unrealistic. After all, how will the Soviets ever
hear our protests. The point is that the Soviets will not change their policy until the Americans decide to take the initiative towards nuclear disarmament. Can Canadians hope to affect U.S. policy? Perhaps the protest is futile or unrealistic, however, to face the reality of today is far too frightening. Bertrand Russell, in a statement signed by Albert Einstein, wrote in opposition of nuclear weapons saying; We appeal as human beings to human beings: Remember your humanity andforget the rest.

The two superpowers have managed to at least sit down and discuss disarmament but, to date, no agreement has been reached. Some may argue that the SALT accords were in effect an agreement to limit nuclear expansion. However, the substance of SALT 1 was essentially that both sides agreed not to produce more than two warheads per day. SALT 11, which has never been ratified by the U.S. Congress, allowed a maximum of three warheads each day. The only real importance

These three talented area youths have gone a long way in a short time and if you haven’t yet rolled with The Dice, you are missing out. It’ll only cost you $4.99 a ticket for a night you won’t soon forget. Joining The Dice on this night of nights, are special. guests the Dave Cooper Band, featuring Gabe Lee. Now, this band is an interesting concept. And if you’ve seen them at the Sulphur or at Nick’s in Blair, you’ll know what I mean. Dave Cooper, accomplished lead guitarist, of the
famed Ian Thomas and Brian Plummer Bands has decided to grab his own spotlight. He played two albums with Thomas and two with Plummer including recent release I’m as Guilty as You. Plummer has since disbanded and Dave freelanced for a while for his musical supper. Variety is the spice of the Dave Cooper band. “We all took songs we really like, 60’s pop tunes, you know, early Animals, Stones, Doors. The band is definitely influenced by that era. But there’s the usual
crap you have to play as well,“’ said Dave. The rock sets sure set feet a-tapping. But when Gabe grabs the spotlight, the feeling is definitely new wave. With, his boyish good looks, and alluring stage presence, Lee can pull off any Elvis Costello, Talking Heads or Future Shock, one of his four original rockers with no problem at all. The boys are also planning a monstrous New Year’s Eve Bash, the locale as yet unnamed. Coral Andrews
KWSO brings piano solos *. K-W Chamber Music Society again leads the way with the K-W area’s first series of solo piano concerts by leading professional artists. Not since Anto Kuerti’s traversal of the Beethoven Sonatas under KWCMS’ sponsorship in 197879 has there been a full series of solo piano concerts in a large auditorium in this area. This season we bring four distinguished artists to WLU’s Theatre-Auditorium on four Sunday evenings, presenting major works of the keyboard literature. November 8: Boris Krajny, distinguished Czech pianist, is the veteran of several world tours with the renowned Prague Chamber Orchestra, as well as solo appearances throughout Europe, North America and elsewhere. Winner of the 5th
International Piano Competition in Citta de Senigallia, Italy (1977), with many recordings to his credit, this artist is one of Europe’s most distinguished pianists. January 10: Janina Fialkowska, from Montreal, is in the opinion of no less than Arthur Rubensteain one of the world’s greatest younger pianists. She has performed with many of the great orchestras of the world, including the Philadelphia, Concertgebouw, London Philharmonia, and many more. Her recordings of Liszt and Chopin, released in Great Britain, were lavishly praised. She is now on the staff of the Julliard School in New York as well. February 14: Ronald Smith, from. the United Kingdom, has one of
the world’s finest techniques. He is the undisputedauthority and primary exponent of the incredibly difficult works of 19th-century French pianist and composer Charles Valentin Alkan. Mr. Smith is an inspiring teacher as well as one of the day’s great masters of the keyboard. March 7: Jane Coop, former pupil of Anton Kuerti and newly professor of piano at the University of British Columbia, recently made her Carnegie Hall debut to critical acclaim. She has performed all over Canada, and in the U.S.A. in solo, chamber and orchestral concerts. Subscriptions,to the series are $30 (reserved), $20 (general) and $10 (student) available at WLU Faculty of Music or from KWCMS; for information call 886-1673.

Self lets There is the insufferable GBS, as cocksure of the correctness of his arguments as he is of his own genius. there is the visionary Shaw, playwright and political philospher of catholic interests who saw injustice around him and tried to tell mankind how it could be ended. And there is theastonishingly human Bernard, who agonizes over his shortcomings, celebrates his personal triumphs, laughs, and weeps. Donal Donnelly’s monologue My Astonishing Self, presented last Saturday evening in the Theatre of the Arts as part of the UW Arts Centre’s Theatre Series, showed us these and other aspects of the public and private Shaw. Donnelly potrayed him sometimes with subtle humour, sometimes with evocative pathos, but always with empathy for the character with which he seems to have become so intimately acquainted. Donnelly has taken this show across North America and through Britain and Ireland, and has himself an impressive acting career on Broadway and elsewhere. It is a pity that a show of this calibre could attract only a two thirds capacity crowd at the Theatre of the Arts. If people stayed away because they felt that they did not know enough about Shaw to enjoy the programme, they missed an excellent opportunity to be introduced to the many facets of this eccentric character. The show, superbly devised by Michael Voysey, was a biographical study of Shaw, tracing not on!y the important eventsin hislife, but also the development of his thought. The first half of the programme concentrated on the public Shaw, the young Shaw, and surveyed his beliefs on everything from, doctors, to poverty, and Christianity. The talented Donnelly, working from a script
carefully crafted by Voysey, moved from one episode toanother with elan. Inone five minute span, we were taken from Shaw’s complaints about the dress codes in theatres, to his distain for the medical profession, ending with his protests against the vivisectionists. * The second half introduced us to the aging Shaw reflecting on his personal life, a part of Shaw that does not often come through in his dramatic or polemical works. By designing the show in such a fashion, Voysey and Donnelly not only add drama to the one man show, but help us better appreciate Shaw, especially the cynicism for which he is famed. For by showing imperfections of the human Shaw, by showing how he relates to the personal tragedy of the death of his wife, for instance, we learn that his cynicism, his ceaseless criticizing of the evils of poverty, violence, and injustice that surrounds him, was not the cranky whining of a self-righteous man, but the despair of a man who loved, and above all respected, his fellow man, and who wished for a better life for those whom he saw suffering at the bottom of the Shavian cynicism is a profound optimism; he. expected life to be fair and just, and cries out, often as a lone voice in the wilderness, when he saw that it was not. Shaw voiced his opinions most effectively through a uniquely wry humour. His witticisms, however, are most often very cerebral, not picaresque or bawdy, and therefore very difficult to use as the stuff of an evening long monologue. But although the pacing was necessarily slow and the mood reserved, Donnelly managed nevertheless to hold our attention, partially through the dramatic development of the aging Shaw, and partially by varying the mode from recitations of letters or articles, to

De Burgh predictable This time, Chris de Burgh didn’t cancel his Kitchener concert. It’s been three years since he cancelled at the Lyric, but it was worth the wait. Opening the concert was a Toronto-based band, Big Shot. These five men were adequate, though hardly exciting. Pick any typical AM radio song and you have their sound down pat. The most noticeable of the band were the piano and the sax. The latter was incredibly good and he managed quite easily to steal the focus from the other members. It isn’t any wonder that de Burgh made extensive use of him later on in the show. Though he was not asgood as the sax and flute player, the man on keyboards was proficient. But if he had done more playing and less swaying, he would have been vastly better. Not surprisingly, Big Shot was also back up band for de Burgh. Under his direction, the band improved greatly it was hard to tell they were the same group. De Burgh gave them the focus they needed. What can one say about Chris de Burgh? I went in steeled for disappointment. I was wrong. De Burgh was fantastic. Fabulous. And just plain good (an overworked word, but it fits so well.) Of course all his big hits were on the programme Spanish Train, Crusader, The Spaceman, Broken Wings and (the show wouldn’t have been complete without it) Patricia the Stripper, even though he did make us wait until the encore. He filled out the show with some of his nicest tunes, those guaranteed to be liked by everyone. Even the selections off Easter Winds (The Traveller, Eastern Wind, Record Company Bash) were all right - perhaps the only likeable songs on the album. De Burgh’s stage presence, though predictable, was well done and enjoyable to watch. He had perfected his hand actions to the point that they hardly looked rehearsed. During Spanish Train, cardboard poker hands flew into the audience. Nice touch. He even had a word for the press critics in the audience. But the song that stole the sl~ow as The Painter. After getting the audience to howl like wolves he went right into the character of a man driven crazy by a cheating wife. It was perfect, right down to the fake fight with the bass guitarist
simple chatting was not just in Shaw, so that as if they were (he would not

performance fun; but impressive and the men in white coats carrying him away. (I know you could see it coming. But it was still fun.) I feel almost compelled to find something wrong with the show. There really wasn’t anything. Well, they did put a mike into the bass drum, making sure its sound would bounce around in every ribcage in the theatre. And the spots were a little bit off their timing. But that was only because Marvin, the lighting
man, was working without his pants (so we heard). Other than these minor, unimportant details, the show was perfect, if perfection can be achieved. The audience had fun. Chris de Burgh had fun. You really can’t ask for more from a performer. I only hope it isn’t another three years before Chrisde Burgh comes back to Kitchener. Frankly, I don’t think we can wait that long. Cathy McBride
l’ighter directioe could takeKL6far It seems difficult to define with any accuracy the basic character of Toronto’s KL8. The euphemism “rock fundamentals” is as valid as any in describing the essence of the band’s musical bat kbone. This concept of relative technical simplicityservesasa firm foundation for the overlying vocals steeped in minor harmonies and conscious non-harmonies and staccato rhythms. They dabble in white ska and in early Talking Heads brand of lyrics. Playing the Kent on Friday night was a prelude to the band’s opening for Simple Minds on Saturday at the Humanities Theatre. They took advantage of the casual atmosphere, indulging the patrons with such songsas the bluesy Rocket Ruby, a fusion of the carnivalesque Doors melody and Magazine’s Devolike vocals. Other tunes included Clown which injecteda
bit of Clapton into the guitar solo; You’re Chic, satire borne in the Rolling Stones and Roxy Music, with an appropriately executed vocal bridge terminating with the words: “Come on baby let’s breed” in a pouty Brian Ferry/David Byrne voice. KL8 has managed to spice their meat-and-potatoes instrumental virtues with saucy time changes, banal non-harmonies (in the tradition of contemporary classical music and avant-garde lab-rock), and assortedsurface effects. They were well received. And although the band exhibited some weaknesses (a tendency to overindulge in frilly effects with self-gratuitous intent) on the whole they showed promise and a willingness to experiment in earnest. A little direction could go a long way. Dan Ayad

Sometimes, the most obvious choice gets overlooked. Canadian National is so broad, so diverse, so integral a part of Canadian life that, paradoxically, it is sometimes not perceived as offering viable career opportunities to today’s graduates. People sometimes think of CN as only a railway, and therefore too specialized for them. Or they see CN as so diverse that the possibilities for personal specialization may be limited. Neither view is quite correct. CN is far more than a railway;,although its rail operations are among the most dynamic in the world. And CN is indeed one of the largest and most progressive companies in the world in transportation and communications, two fields in which new ideas, up-to-date scientific, engineering and management techniques are of crucial importance. CN is actively seeking out university graduates with the skills, zest and goals to match the demands of the company’s future. If your qualifications are in engineering, computer science, economics, business administration or in other related disciplines-you may be exactly the kind of man or woman CN needs. Ask for a copy of the CN Graduate Opportunities booklet, available now from your placement centre. It sets out in more detail how you might fit in at CN.

Acker Bilk performancb It was disconcerting to say the least! There were all these teenagers scribbling madly on foolscap before, during and after Acker Bilk and the Paramount Jazz Band came on stage to do what they came to do. It was not exactly a night of punk or new wave or even good 01’ rock and roll! What were they all doing here? Well as it turns out, they were writing some kind of school report. Good luck to them. The audience could sit down and tally up their list of songs, and unless they knew jazz well, there would be a few numbers that they ’ couldn’t name inSunday night’s performance. Of course, old favourites and well knowns such as Sweet Georgia Brown, Moodlnterual, Autumn Leaves, I Only Have Eyes For You and Acker Bilk’s own hits, Aria and Stranger on the Shore which were easily recognizable. As for the rest, sorry folks. The students writing the reports may not have noticed the one thing I found extremely _ lacking. There was no place to dance. The Centre in the Square was full and everyone sat - tapping toes, nodding heads or swaying shoulders in time to the infectious jazz beat. But there was nowhere to dance! Why, even Hamilton Place lets its patrons dance in the aisles when the mood overtakes them!/The Centre ought to take it into consideration.
Now the students writing reports of this evening made copious notes (I sat near four and their pen scratching drove me crazy). I’m sure that they noted the group’s balance and tone were excellent. They probably took into consideration the wonderful sound system and the well rehearsed lights and‘ad lib’. I’m sure some of them noted the dry; subtle and sometimes groaning humour of Acker Bilk. They would have given rave reviews of The Flintstones, featuring an incredibly comic double bass solo by Tut ker Finlayson (say his name three times fast in a row.) This number received the most enthusiastic response all night, and it deserved it. Acker Bilk’s Paramount Jazz Band was made up of Mike Cotton on trumpet, Campbell Burnap on trombone (with vocals sounding like a trombone as well), Colin Wood on piano and flute, Ritchie Bryant on drums, and the aforementioned Tucker Finlayson on double bass.’ Mike Cotton was a more natural showman than Acker Bilk but he kept in the background so as not to be distracting. Colin Wood played a sympathetic and sometimes dazzling piano. He was the member least bothered by the toobright spots because he wasn’t facing the audience. Acker Bilk excelled in his own work. He has a way of crooning notes out of his
In an excellent performance Monday night, Cedric Smith and Ross Douglas brought the much-acclaimed Canadian show, Billy Bishop Goes to War to the Humanities Theatre. It deserves the acclaim. Billy Bishop is one of those rare things: a show that -appears simple, and when you think about it, it isn’t. But everything is right there, out in the open. Billy Bishop, the boy from Owen Sound, whc. Aot kicked out of R~MC as the worst student ever (well, for starters, he handed his crib notes in with the exam -) and ended up in the war - as one of the most decorated fighter aces of the war, with 72 kills to his name. It is an evening with Bishop, and he is telling us how he got into this game, and sometimes he shows us that it isn’t a game at all. # These are not new ideas. War has been punctured by humour for many years (M*A*S*H springs immediately to mind) but they do not show the reason why wars go on, and Billy Bishop does tell us, a little. He likes it. He likes the killing; the dogfights are the greatest high he has ever had. The people cease to exist. At one point (when he had 42 kills, three less than Albert Ball had before he died) he resists being taken off duty, because he needs three more Aills. (‘“Flying doesn’t mean a thing. I can’t fly worth shit. It’s the shooting that makes the kill. I always shoot for the man.“) And then, near the end, he splits open a German two-seater, not harming the men inside, and they fall over a thousand feet and he can do nothing - save them or kill them. Sometimes the horror comes through. Again. The last time the play came to UW, in 1979, the narratorpianist was John Gray (coauthor, director, too) and Eric Peterson played Bishop and the other 17 characters. I didn’t miss them at all. It was wonderfully done (although I admit I had wax in my ears during the songs; I did not always catch the lyrics) by -Messrs. Smith and DougIas.
Imagination was the key: a minimum of props in the first act (although the second act suddenly had a full-size, biplane at the back of the stage). We laughted. We listened to Billy tell us about his life,

clarinet that make couples edge a little closer, and bring lumps to the throats of others. (i was there, I saw them.) As far as conclusions go, I suppose some of the pen scratchers would have a great deal to say about combinations of styles, tone, quality and colour. These things were all good. The showmanship was - comfortable and qualitative. The show had, asAcker Bilk,described
“one song, “a beginning, a middle and an end.” But that was it. There was not the added spirit, oomph, whatever you want to call it, which makes a show great. : “In my. opinion, a non-discriminating audience gave Acker Bilk and the Paramount Jazz Band a standing ovation they did n3t deserve.

Top guitarist coming t0 town Chris Spedding is one of those musicians that has be-j come popular with other musicians and with that elite group of critics and fans who are really on top of the rock music scene. His name is not that well known on this side of the Atlantic, but his guitar playing has, I’m sure, been heard bya lot of people; he has played on albums by Elton John, Harry Nilsson, Gilbert O’Sullivan, David Essex, Jim Capaldi, Mike Bat+ Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Joan Armatrading, and Robert Gordon. That’s a pretty impressive list of references. Why is Spedding not that well know? Two reasons: 1) lack of airplay - CFNY is the only radio station I know of in this area that plays any of his tunes and, 2) Inone of his six solo albums have been released domestically, and not very many people are willing to spend $15.00 on a single (import) record. Allof whichisreallytoobad. Chris Spedding is one of the best rock guitarists in the business. Period. At the age of 37, he has been around for quite a while, starting out at about the same time as all those “guitar heroes” of the late sixties - Hendrix, Clapton, Beck, Page, etc. - and Spedding is in the same league as all of them. Listening to his music, it is evident that Spedding shares some of the same influences and inspirations as all those other guys,, especially Beck and Clapton.

The Arts I!Cathk Aaloka, the distinguished dancer from India, is performing at the University of Waterloo, on Nov. 4, 1981 at 4:30 p.m. in the Humanities Theatre as part of the World of Dance series. This is her here second performance since her premiere in Canada on March 21. In these months, Aaloka has been performing and teaching in many cities of the U.S.A. and Canada. On Nov. 5, a day after her performance at UW, Aaloka goes on a tour overseas for four months. Here is a brief evaluation of her unusually brilliant work. As a newcomer to our country, we should welcome her with all our gusto! Like most people in this country, I know little about the dances and the arts of the countries in the East. So it was something of a revelation to me when, accompanied by two young children, 10 and 12, I happened to see a performance by a dancer from India. It was March 21, full moon and the first day of spring. The dance was called The Eternal Dunce of Spring: The Legend of Krishna; the dancer Aaloka, ‘The Radiant One’. Without any reservations, I must say that it was quite simply exquisite! I have no doubt that perhaps I understood only a small fraction of all the delicate and subtle gestures and meanings in this solo dance-drama, nevertheless I was deeply moved by its immense vitality. My children too, and the rest of the audience - comprising many young children and women in their 80’s, all equally unfamiliar with Indian music or dance, were visibly enchanted. It was not something merely exotic that had so captured our attention, but somewhere a deeper universal chord had been touched in us all. Beyond obvious cultural differences, beyond distinctions in aesthetic preferences, Aaloka had presented a great spiritual allegory in a most colourful manner. This 22 year old dancer from India had arrived in our land in the middle of January to make Canada her new home. At the University of Waterloo this was her premiere performance of a dance-drama she had composed in India and performed just a few hours before she left the country. Aaloka came her knowing little how her dance would be received here or by whom. Yet in her Indian sandals, on her arrival here, she touched the snow for the first time and was filled with a child’s joy; she felt confident that the whole world is a stage and that people everywhere would respond to her art. Watching her perform at the Theatre of the Arts, one knew how right she was. Aaloka dances in Kathak style, a dance form that originated and flourished in north India. It is over 2,000 years old and is one of the several Indian classical dances. It is thus part of a rich cultural heritage that goes back to at least 4,000 years. Kathak was initially performed in temples as a way of worship and cefebration. it was employed to present a dance-drama, to narrate a

Save 20 - 40% on any book in print! Saveup to 80%on selectedtitks NO GIMMICKS AND NO HARD SELL story - the term katha~ literally means ‘story teller’ based on the great Hindu epics, the Ramauana and the Mahabharta. For centuries, the source of greatest inspiration to Kathak dancers was the Hindu god Krishna. Krishna is the most colour-ml of Indian gods, at once an Apollo, a Zeus and a Dionysus and more. As a god of love and music, Krishna is said to evoke love not fear, delight not anger. All this is now stuff of history. Yet Aaloka talks about it as though the legends and the long history of India happened only yesterday. In one way or another, she has lived the legends and the history of dance since she was a little girl. Something of a child prodigy, Aaloka started learning and performing at the age of six. “A stage, “she says,“&he most exciting place in the world. I could quite happily dwell there all my life.” Prodded by her parents, Aaloka learned dancing under one Guru after another. She didn’t quite know how to write - “I cried when I wrote the exams,” yet she was awarded a B.A. in danceat the age of 13. For her dances, there was always the thunderous ovation, always the ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’. yet the most aroused responses from her audiences came when Aaloka performed ‘pure Kathak’, displaying dexterous foot-work to the beats of the tabla. “I would go round and round in one spot, taking 80 to 100 turns, with my sari whirling and my bodyina state of some rhythmic frenzy . . . the audience loved it. My guru wanted me to strive for 120 or 150 turns. It was so very thrilling.” She paused for a moment, and then ‘added
quietly, “But that’s not really dancing, that’s acrobatics. What is thrilling often distr;l.::ts from what is profound. I feel that for the sake of ecstasy, one has to forego ;r?any pleasures.” Now at the University of Waterloo, Aaloka danced for almost two hours, assuming 21 different roles,fromacobra to a child Krishna, wore 175 bells, weighing 15 pounds. In moments of fast-paced motion, all bells rang out in orchestral celebration; at other moments, she diminished movement and sound to such stillness that only a single bell gave out its sound. The effect was hypnotic. For the sake of the audience not familiar with the
legend of Krishna, the story was briefly narrated before each act as Aaloka mimed it., But her dance was so expressive and her presence on the stage so full of certitude that one followed the complex legend quite effortlessly. One after another, as the characters in the drama kept emerging from and submerging into one irrefutable presence, the central tenet of nondualistic Hinduism itself became evident in the symbolic structure of the solo dancedrama. Aaloka’s portrayal of the struggle of Krishna with the demon-cobra Kali,and the longing of Radha, the beloved of Krishna, were asfine works of art as one has witnessed I anywhere.

Chasing Paper Tigers is an interesting blend of rock and roll and new wave. Ridin’ Into the Night, the first cut, is definitely AM radio music. It is a short piece which leaves a semi-country aftertaste in your head. The only other cut on the first side worth listening to is a piece called You’re Boring. There is excellent bass playing, a good solo by one of the guitarists, but the drums-are not as loud as they could be. The second side starts out with Gimme A Taste. This is FM rock at its best. The only problem is that the guitar is, at times, a trifle too loud. On the last two cuts: IDon’t Want To Know and Breakdown, Steve sounds a lot like Elvis Costello. Unfortunately, the choruses of ninety percent of the pieces are the title, repeated over and over and over again. Steve Blimkie and The Reason will be with us on that night of nights, Hallow’s Eve, when they will play for your entertainment in the dining hall of Village One. As for myself, I won’t be there.

Saga Worlds Apart Maze Records Rupert Hine produced this disc. in essence, all that needs be said. The continuing saga of Saga plods on and none but one can dance to save us from the divine mockery of words. This Canadian band has found a wealth of laudits and a persuasion of fans to rival the hungry multitudes - overseas. By that I mean they have become virtual superstars in such countries as Germany, Italy, and Belgium, while remaining obscure in their country of origin. Their initial fusion of Genesis with FM styles of music has evolved, over the course of several albums (Saga, Images at Twilight, Silent Knight etc.) and their corresponding tours, to a sound profuse with strata of synthesizer chirpings and wailings. And obviously it is exactly what their present following is looking for. But. Enter their latest endeavour, Worlds Apart, and the sage, isolationist ideologies of Rupert Hine vanguard producer, artiste, and <allround twinkie. He has immersed himself in projects with such figures as Bowie, Marianne Faithful, and Anthony Philips, and is pleasingly obvious on Saga’s Worlds Apart. He has imposed a spartan sparseness in the mikeing and mixing which remains in character with his musical philosophies. The resulting album is a refreshing, though still somewhat predictable, anthology of tunes representing the chasm.
The Gap. Differences in opinion. Dreams against reality. Hope arguing with cynicism. Ideology discrediting pragmatism. (Youth vs. Age?) Well, at least that’s what I understood of it. Then again, maybe I’m overestimating the allusory intentions and profundity of those nice boys from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. But that’s my folly. Maybe they’re just nicesounding lyrics that mean beans-all. One thing that has remained consistent is that recurring theme present in the form of the patented Sagainsect-humanoid. To any Saga followers this piece of music will seem at first strange, but is sure to become a true jewel in their continuing Saga discography, with much credit due to Saga’s courage in innovating and Rupert Hine’s oblique opinions on how music should sound.

In fact the casualty total before the game ended included a broken finger, a broken nose and assorted contusions. According to one Waterloo player they encountered a fundamental problem: “We were there to play rugby and they were there for something else.” Western’s Field was a disaster, flooded beyond the point of being usable. The officials demonstrated painfully obrious bias, calling Waterloo ignoring roughness while Western’s - rough overtures; eventually after threatening innumerable times to eject one particularly aggressive Western player, the referee asked a Waterloo player to leave the field when he retaliated after a Western blow.

Playing at York University Waterloo defeated Western Mustangs and the McMaster Maurauders. These wins give Waterloo the lead at the halfway point of the Waterpolo season.

ports UW wins Shannon Last week’s OUAA Rugby game between the Waterloo Warriors and the McMaster Marauders was a spectators’ delight. Played in Seagram Stadium in honour of Dave Shannon, the Warriors hosted their perennial rivals and took them to the cleaners, with both teams coming into the game with a 3-3 record, a hard fight was anticipated. However, five minutes into the first half it became evident who wanted to win the game the most. The Waterloo forwards’ (perhaps the smallest in the league) seemed clearly outsized and yet their determined play and desire to win found them coming up with tie ball loose after loose. In the first half it was the backs who reaped the glory. With forwards providing clean ball, the backs were given the opportunity to show their skill, and show they did. The combination of Jimmy Allen, Andy Stone and Ian Hunt dazzled both teammates and spectators. It was this exact combination which gave rise to Hunt’s breakaway

and the Warrior’s first try. The second half brought out an irrate and far more determined Mat squad. Several potentially large gaining runs were thwarted by the speed of the Warriors’ back row of Jennings, Cathery and Bruce. The Warriors’ second try came early in the second half when 1

The basketball Warriors took to the court last Saturday in pre season action with a senior men’s team. Intended primarily to give the Warriors a ‘chance to do some scrimmaging it turned out to be a good show with the Warriors finishing ahead 77-69. -Peter Savich (“Learn to spell that name,” says Coach McCrae, “You’ll be seeing a lot of it!“) one of the Warrior rookies, took top scoring honors netting 22 points for the evening. Savich looks as if he will prove to be a great asset to the Warriors with dead on
shots from all over the court. The Warrior squads appear to be in fine form, the players are aggressive and smooth in any number of combinations. With much needed bolstering in the guarding positions the Warriors were able to dominate the court all night and the efforts of Bob Urosovic Clayton Ninham and Cal Kiel were more than effective. The Warriors meet the Toronto Varsity Blues in exhibition action this evening at home. Gametime is eight o’clock at the PAC. V. Butler

Flea Market Results Twenty-four different vendors set up shop at last Saturday’s flea market and managed to rake in a total of $2724.00. Various Department of Athletics’ boothes pulled in over $1200.00 to put to their clubs and councils. Top money makers were men’s varsity basketball and the sailing club each of whom made better than $250.00. The department was grateful to volunteers who set up and took down equipment. Overall the day ran ruccessfully. Whether such an event will repeat will be decided at a department meeting at which point the distribution of funds will be decided too.
Take A Plunge This year the University 3 Waterloo is trying to accommodate a larger variety of swimmers in the PAC pool. Recently, however, this has led to the dissatisfactionof several people. In recreational swims, the lanes have been removed for the purpose of allowing people to socialize, practice their strokes, float or dive, but not to swim lengths. This swim, non-the-less, still continues to attract the fitness swimmers. It is our intention to get back those swimmers that have beenscared away for sometime by the fitness swims. Change does not come overnight but if enough of you try to be a little more patient and understanding of each other’s needs, it will lead one to a better appreciation for the reasons behind having a recreational swim and removing the buoy line.

The Outers Club This article is meant to introduce you to the OUters Club, and to let you know what events the club has planned for the upcoming months. The Outers Club is an on-campus group whose basic purpose is to provide a forum in which people with a common interest can meet and socialize. What common interest you ask? Why, an interest in the outdoors and outdoor activities, naturally! Club meetings are a convenient way to gather people so that trips can be planned. Further, ‘expert’ club members often provide instruction in outdoor sports (eg. kayaking and skiing) to whomever is interested. The club has all sorts of outdoors equipment available for rental, as well as literature on hiking trails, canoeing routes, and many other subjects which an adventuresome person might be interested in. The club also has a wide range of activities planned for the winter months. No special skills are needed for these events, just a I willingness to learn, and in some cases a few training sessions beforehand. Some of these activities are as follows. 1)Ice Climbing. This is done wherever water * has formed an ice wall by seeping from or flowing over a rock face. You need some hiking boots and a warm pair of gloves, while the club has crampons, ice hammers, ropes and the other necessary equipment. 2) Cross-Country Skiing, The Canadian Ski Marathon and Riviere Rouge ski events are held in the Ottawa area on the weekends of February 14 and 21, respectively. They can either be skied as fun events oras competitions. The entry deadlines are near the end of December. As well, there are usually invitational meets which the ‘not-so-serious’ skier can enter. Further, members will be going on some weekend ski trips and one-day outings, and, if enough interest is shown, lessons will be given. The club has ski equipment. 3) Snowshoeing. There will also be snowshoeing outings, probably both one-day and weekend adventures. The club has snowshoes. 4) Winter Camping. Naturally, winter camping is part of any two-day skiing or snowshoeing trip. Best to bring along beverages that keep. you warm! 5) Kayaking. On Sunday afternoons from 4 to 6 the club holds a kayaking workshop in the PAC pool. The basics of paddling and safety are covered, although more advanced topics such as rolling and racing can also be taught. All of the above activities rely completely on member initiative and participation. I would urge anyone with interests in the above areas, or in areas not mentioned in this article, to become involved in the club’s activities. How do you go about doing that? Well, youcan keep an eye on the Imprint to find out when the next general meeting is, and then attend. Or you can look at the Outers newsletter that the PAC receptionist has on file. It contains all the details we didn’t want to bore you with in this article, as well as a listing of phone numbers for contact people in the club. There is also a copy posted on the door of PAC room 2010. The next move is yours! ***Next Meeting: Wednesday October 28, 5 PM In CC 135*** L
