Rumoursabound It’s open. It’s closed. It’s open. Those are the conflicting reports that students listening to the local radio station CKK W heard early Monday morning on the state of the University of Waterloo. CHY M, however, did not announce that the university was closed. According to Director of Information Services, Jack Adams, ,the media (radio station CKKW, CHYM, and CKMS) had beenissued a letter of procedure in case of bad weather. The letter stated that the stations were not to accept any messages unless they were from himself. Radio hews assignment editor for CKKW, Mike Beeston, at first stated that he was not aware of any announcement on CKKW

The Environmental Studies Society will start the new year off fresh byredecorating its coffeeshop, says society president. Redecorating of the coffeeshop, which is located in the basement of ES I, will occur the third week in January; according to president Pam Kraft. ES Week, planned for the end of January, will include such activities as snow sculptures, displays, films, crosscountry skiing.

The society will hold several coffeehouses throughout the term. Kraft says these events will “allow students to display their musical and comedical abilities.”

‘Amongst debaters from England, Australia and the rest of the English-speaking world at the World Championships of Debating, there will be a team from U W. The ‘Worlds’ are being held the end of this month at the University of Toronto, last year’s champions. Every Canadian university has an invitation to send a team, and, says Heather Ferguson of UW’s House of Debates, “We’re not going to miss it”. Besides the ‘Worlds’, the House of Debates (named after UW’s old debating society) is planning at least three other debates this term. According to Ferguson the number depends on how the funds hold out. The Monday following the ‘Worlds’, the club hopes to invite a team from one of the countries represented to UW for an exhibition

indicating that the university was closed. - However, upon inquiring amongst other employees, he discovered that the closure of U W had been announced. Yet Beeston maintaines ?t is always possible that something was announced by the disc jockeys that we (news department) were not aware of.” Carol Exley, another employee at CKK W was home listening to the station. She stated that she did here conflicting reports. Adams stated that he had been listening to the radio since about 6:00 a.m. Hearing lists of cancellations, he contacted Bruce Gallatly, to ensure that the university was open. Adams said that he preferred not to call the media because his message was not a cancellation and he feared that it would be interpreted as such.

debate. They have already had an exhibition debate with U of T so they’re ready. Last term the club presidentjudged in the Sir Sanford Fleming debates, the debates held for and by the Engineers. The debating society is hoping that Engineers interested in debating will come out and practice with themforexperience. Some engineers did participate last term and in fact, the vice-president helped‘ coordinate the Fleming debates. ’ The meetings of the club are relaxed, informal debates. Members argue “fun resolutions” to learn to relax when debating in front of an audience. The society is presently looking for an experienced debating coach. Ferguson says they’re doing all right on their own, but all the members agree that they need guid’ance from outside. Cathy McBride

However, on the 7:30 a.m. news, Adams heard that U W was closed and then phoned the station to repudiate the report. Answering phones that day for CKKW between?:00 and 1O:OO a.m. was John Yost, radio salesperson for CFCA. He stated that an unknown person phoned ,in saying that UW was closed. Yost was apparently ignorant ‘of U W’s cancellation procedure as he accepted the message withrout asking the identity of the caller. “You have to remember that the phones were busy . . . I don’t-ask for names when answering the phones,” he stated.Beeston is certain that the caller was “a hoax” as the caller did not identify himself as a spokesperson from the university. Beeston -hopes that this type of incident will not be repeated and states that “we aretaking steps to make sure it does not happen again.” Yost then handed the apparent cancellation to the announcer. It was later that CKKW thought to have the report confirmed. At this point CCKW contacted CHYM. Carol Johns, receptionist for CHYM, stated that when CKKW phoned, CHYM decided to check out the report before reporting anything definite. According to Johns, it was not until Adams reached the station that the official stance was announced. Adams stated that when he arrived at the university, CHY M phoned him asking for an official report. CHYM then, according to Adams, stated that they had rece’ived a message from a federation member, Alone in the UW student federation office that morning was Bob Ellioft, vice-president of : the federation. Elliott stated that he arrived at the office at 7:40 and began answering calls from anxious students asking whether the’university was ’ closed or not. Knowing the conditions on

Anti-crime

campus,.Elliott stated that he informed callers that the university was open, however, he “strongly discouraged” callers from coming to campus. According to Elliott, at 8:lO a.m. CKKW contacted him and told him that Adams had stated the university was closed. Elliott stated that when CHYM phoned he then relayed the message that CKKW had told him. Later on the 8:30 news, Elliott heard that the university wgs open and then phoned UW president Doug Wright in hopes of receiving a correct report. Both Adams and Elliott had comments to make concerning the confusion. According to Adams, the problem is that when he contacts the station, he does not know whom he is speaking to and has to trust that person to correctly relay the message. Adams maintains that it was “unfortunate” that the university did remain open and that“it would have been a lot easier to have closed the university.” Adams also stated that he was concerned for the future. . Elliott believes that Adams should have called the media immediately to say that the university would ,remain open since the university was a significant exception. Elliott believes that a 1979 university policy which dictates that the university will remain open unless reversed by a presidential decision should be changed, “You can’t have one class run and other class not.” he states, Elliott remarked that in the future instead of saying that the university is open, the university should report something more definite such as “the university is open, but classes are cancelled.” Since conditions were somewhat better Monday afternoon, Elliott stated that the morning classes should have been cancelled. j Anna Lehn

I policy “perfectly

Remember the good old days when yu were in public school orhigh school - you would rush to turn on the radio at the detection ofasnowstormin hopes that school will be cancelled? If the weather conditions were at all questionable, you were asked to remain at home. . Well, now that you are in university, no one really cares about you. After all, we are grownups are we not. 7 Last weekend’s snow storm was the latest indication of this attitude towards students. Listening to CHYM radio’s repeated warnings not, to travel, as well as hearing their overw-orked description of the weather as “brutally cold”, I was not at all tempted to venture out for a mere two hours of classes. I believe their constant repetition of warnings was in order to emphasize a point - stay at home. But lo and behold the University of Waterloo, as the radio blared, “is open for those who can make it.” In the sameannouncement, long lists ofcancellations were read -not just schools, but businesses as well. The OPP and snow crews had been pulled off the roads. Yet the lowly students (spread out over the K-W area) were to attend classes. Those who braved the elements were faced with a number of problems. Firstly, they were lucky if professors made an appearance, especially since some professors live in rural areas. If the instructor did show up, many students could or did not. Asforclasses that were in session, I can hardly imagine that there was much enthusiasm for learning. Then students faced another problem, that of campus services. The UW Gazette stated in an article about Monday, that “just about everything was open,” but I cannot conceive that the paper was speaking about services. The bookstore was indeed closed, a cashier assured me, and a place where one could obtain something edible was difficult to find, so I hear. Even the postal system, both the external and the internal, were either c’ scarce or non-existant. As Jack Adams (Director of Information Services) told me, “I assumed (the mail system) was not operating.” (And the postal workers are traditionally thought of as \ carrying the mail through rain,, sleet, snow, etc.) I

stupid” I

All in all, the whole situation was not completely fair to anyone. Those who remained at home took the chance of missing classes. Those battling the weather risked the fact that their troubles were a waste of time. Why, you ask, was the university open if the media took such care to stress the treacherous conditions? The whole problem, Adams informed me, dates back to a 1979. policy which in effect states the university will remain open unless a presidential decision reverses the policy. At that point, the president contacts either the vice-president or information services who then contact the media(CHYM, CKKW, CKMS). SO, unless Dr. Wright deems it so, the university is open. One of my professors made a few comments concerning Monday after having faced the difficulty of finding another human being in the department. This professor called the situation, “perfectly stupid” and resulted because of a “hairy-chested macho attitude” (since the university consists of many engineers. My concern is that this utter chaos may happen again only at a more crucial point in the term such as final exams. May I suggest that students arrange with their professors (if possible) what to do in case of inclement weather on the day of an exam. Otherwise, I suggest, if the media advises against travel, and you don’t feel like leaving the warm comfort of your bed - then don’t. Anna Lehn

It was 9:30 a.m. last Monday. Braving cold temperatures, icy roads and poor visiblility, the students came on campus. After all, the university was open and missing lectures can be dangerous. So they assembled for class, waiting-in vain. The students were there. The prof wasn’t. The lines of communication had broken down somewhere, badly. c The first foul-up occurred early in the morning! At 800 a.m. CKKW announced that both universities were open for students who could make it in. At 830, the station announced that both universities were closed. At 8:45, only WLU was closed; U W was open for those who could make it. Confusing? You bet. The confusion didn’t stop there. I, for one, wanted to know who was right - those who said we were open or those who said we were closed. So I called the university switchboard, hoping the operator would have been told. No one had bothered to tell the women anything. Again, it wasn’t-her fault but the fault of those at the top. Someone should have told her if we were open so she could pass the information on. The best piece of advice I got came from the turnkeys. They knew we were open but told me to call my profs before coming to classes. Good idea. Too bad it didn’t work. I don’t have home phone numbers forprofsand evenif I did I would be leary ofcalling them at home (I wouldn’t want to be disturbed). Earlier I had called a friend whose father is a prof to see if he was coming up (figuring that most profs would do what he did). They weren’t up yet. I got them out of bed. I certainly wasn’t goi~ngto risk that with people who ’ * are going to give me marks! So I came up anyways -just in case. As said earlier, the students showedfor the9,:30 class, but the prof didn’t. ‘Figuring that this might happen all day, I decided to try and find out if my profs.were around. I called their offices. No answer. But they might be out inclasses or something. I called the department secretary. No answer. I called the chairman’s secretary. Still no answer. So, as a last resort I called the switchboard. The operator had no way of knowing who was on campus and who wasn’t. She put me through to the Arts Undergrad office. The secretary was there, but she couldn’t help either. All she could offer to do was call the offices of my profs - something I had already tried in vain. No one with any authority knew who was oncampus and who wasn’t. SQ what’s the solution? Easy -the administration of this university has to get its act togetherandstartcommunicatingwitheachotherand withthestudents. Iftheweather’s bad, you can’t expect the profs to make it in/But it would be nice to know who was going tot be on campus. It really wouldn’t be hard to set up a system to find out who’s on campus and who isn’t. There are enough faculty lists around, either from the computers or in the,form of campus directories. Why not leave one with the switchboard? If a prof can’t make it in, he can call in. The operator can put acheck by his name. Then whenstudentscall up, she just has to find his name. A check - he won’t be in. No check - he will be in (or at least he hasn’t called yet but your chances are good.) 5 And if you don’t want to add to the work of the operator, thereare enough secretaries on campus that one of them should make it in. There can be a list in-the cJepartment secretary’s office and whoever makes it in from that department can man the phones. Students could be told in advance to call that number for information. It’s an easy system - whoever’s on the phone just needs an alpha list of profs (commonly called the campus phone directory) and a pencil. It doesn’t take much time. It’s efficient. And everyone will know what’s happening. 1 Face it - when you’re shelling out a thousand bucks, you like to know what the hell is going on. - _, Cathy McBride

Engineers, on campus longer than any other faculty, are celebrating their twenty-fifth anniversary along with the rest of the university. And, as Engsoc President Don Heath says, “We’re going to have a full term’s worth?’ During Fitness Week, January 18-22, the Engineers are running C.P.R. courses in cooperation with Health Services. Engineering Weekend is scheduled for January 28-3 1, while Engineering Week takes place two months later, March 6-13. The Engineers are also co-sponsoring theSir Sanford Fleming debates throughout the term, with finals to be held March 2. Other events planned for this term include the Waterloo Invitational Engineering Bowlirrg Tournament (Wat-bol for short -- no, that’s not a new computer language), the Bus Push for Big Sisters, and the First Annual Homebrewing Contest. -

Full-time students will no longer be able to claim the $50.00-per-month tax deduction and part-time students taking a course in which tuition is less than $100.00 will not be able to claim their tuition as a deduction, as a result of the federal Liberal government’s new budget.

government budget. About 200 people participated in the open forum, largely focussing on the shortcomings of the budget and its effect on the economy. While the Conservatives admitted that they were in a rather poor position to change anything on their own, the task force members stressed the importance of the public lobbying Liberal backbenchers in order to produce some internal pressure on the Liberal government. The task force members said they felt that it was their job to travel the country enlightening the public to the shortcomings of the budget. There were many pro-Conservative citizens in the crowd and the forum followed a pattern of audience com,plaints about the budget, applause from the. audience, and then a

response from one or more members of the task force who agreed with the complaints and then elaborated on them. The majority of complaints against the budget had to do with MabEachen’sattempt to raise more revenue by plugging previous loopholes that were used by taxpayers to lower their taxes. v Taxing of. interest on investments, and the apparent trend towards taxing any capitai gains, interest on whole life insurance and other such measures was seen as having the effect of stifling private initiative, especially in the areas of investment and providing venture&capital for new businesses. Several audience members referred to the fact that this country was built on private enterprise and that it shouldn’t be stifled now. Randy Hannigan

In addition, the income averaging provision has been. eliminated, which means that students who previously earned a small income during work terms could average the salary of their first year retroactively over several years, thus reducing the taxes of their first year. In future, they will be taxed at the full rateforthat first year. Members of the task force set up shop in the ballroom of the Valhalla Inn in Kitchener in order to provide a forum for local citizens to voice their complaints about the recent federai

It is designed \ to make women more aware of just how vulnerable they are, but also aware of their potential strengths. Some physical defenses are taught, such as where and how to kick and punch and how to get out of wrist~grasps. The main focus of the course is general precautions to-take to avoid getting into a rape-potential situation. Al Evans, a holder of black belts in bothjudo and Aiki-Jitsu, is the instructor for the course. It was his own idea to offer this kind of course. He felt that too many women were getting roughed up. He said that women need to learn an attitude of no-holds-barred when con-

fronted with an assailant. Most women are too squeamish if they have not been trained otherwise. I Another factor working against women is their psychological image of men as protectors; starting with their father, men represent safety. Thus, when women get at-. tacked, the culture shock freezes them momentarily. After all, why would men at\tack women? The course itself is five sessions long, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. The course has been longer in the past but the individuals enrolled in the previous courses wanted a shorter version. For anyone interested in learning more self defense, Al Evans recommends that she take a martial arts course, such as karate. As of Tuesday afternoon, there was still room’in the course for anyone interested. The signup is in the Recreation office in the Julie George PAC.

Whatever happened to the well-rounded individual who was throughly grounded in the basics of arts and science? What has become of the physically well-tuned, the socially astute and the academically prudent student? These questions are cause of contemplation not because they reflect a romantic idealization of a past that never was but simply because they indicate that our system of education might not in fact be all we claim it to be. (

The debate as to the proper function of education has hardly been concluded. But it seems that .governments long ago decided that education’s chief function was to increase the national supply of trained workers. As a functional requirement in our rapidly changing society, education fulfils its purpose when it leaves the individual suitably prepared 1to deal with the demands of a complex society. While we may live in a technological society in which yesterdays hopes have become today’s realities, there .are yet a series of problems which beset society and to which we need to address ourselves. Thew&ld has become so interdependent that each of us is called to develop some consciousness of social and political events in

other parts of the world. The relation of suchan awareness to issues of prejudice and discrimination is obvious. Today we are bombarded on every front by advertising which takes as its point of departure the ignorant consumer. We need to develop a keen sense of awareness if we’re to be liberated from what Herbert Marcuse has called a one-dimensional society. However, education today seems to militate against the development of any such mental posture. Each of us has becomea specialist. In fact the word specialist has taken on a mystique of its own. One of the best ways to ac,quire prestigeas a student is to announce, preferably within hearing of a large group, that you are specializing in such and such a field. The more remote your said area of specialty the better! We have all become so thoroughly absorbed in our individual specialties that we’vegone on to justify it. We now speak of society’s increasing complexity, citing economic division of labour as if it was clear to allprecisely what this phrase denotes. No one has determined ‘if specialization in education developed in response to society’s needs or whether in fact this is an adpostfacto justification. It’s always easy to appeal to some great cause-such as the needs of society when we’re unsure of what exactly we’re doing. This to me is what characterizes education today - the lack of any clear sense of direction.

Imprint, Campus CentreBoom .$4&s ,.- ’ University of Waterloo’. Imprint is a weekly paper, appearing on campus every Friday. Deadlines are set at 6:00 p.m. Monday for the following Friday’s paper.

In lieu of a well-formulated policy on education specialization at every conceivable level becomes the chief ingredient of university education. While professors are hired according to their individual specialties and departments worth their salt make some attempt to gather a respectable diveristy of acade”mics, the tendency is for .each professor to work within his or her own field.. The teaching of introductory level courses becomes a necessary evil, particularly for junior members of faculty who invariably find. themselves with a disproportionate share of such courses. Intra- and interydepartmental co-operation where it does exist is usually strained and rarely extends to a holistic approach to department teaching and research. Graduate students in their struggle to identify with whatare being held out as proper academic goals are compelled to specialize in one or two’ fields as soon as possible. While departments pay lip service to, the idea of the student acquiring a general knowledge of the state of the discipline’ and, to that end, specify certain courses as compulsory requirements, every one knows that projects, theses and dissertations are of more importance. The student soon forgets all courses as the race to complete. one’s research project gets under way. The end product is a specialist with a limited knowledge’ of ,his discipline as a whole. r Undergraduate students would seem to be in the best position in terms of the breadth of their education. At least ,this is the underlying assumption of graduation requirements which invariably include courses from a relatively broad academic spectrum. In reality students tend either to take courses which (in their estimation at least) are described as’birdies’, or else those which are in some way or the other related to the student’s academic major. The very notion of a major is a preliminary designation which becomes re-defined as a specialization as the student moves up the academic ladder. The disdain in which ‘general’ students are held is indicative of the way in which we view education. ‘General programs are frowned upon while the applied studies programs, most commonly represen- ’

A

ted as the co-op program is lauded. Note the speed with with departments traditionally identified as academic moved to establish coop programs in their own fields. We now have co-op English, Philosophy and Sociology to mention but a few. While there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with co-operative or’job-oriented education, there’ is something very ‘disturbing about the way in which intellectual endeavour has been so securely tied to the job market. As far as I understand the history of cooperative education, the initial purpose was the acquisition of experience in a world outside the confines of the university. This outside experience is being increasingly defined as working experience. And one result of this is the cleavage between Mathematics and Engineering students.on one hand, and- Arts students on the other. The usual argument is that most of the former get a dose of the ‘real’ world while the latter do not. The result is a very definite superiority complex. Perhaps we need to remember that the amount of time devoted to formal work in our society is steadily declining. We are slowly moving towards the construction of a society .wherein leisure and human recreativity will become principal occupations. If what students of leisure and recreation tell us is true the co-ordination and placement personnel would do well to bear this trend in mind. And perhaps on their next work term students, complete with sunglasses and Panama hats would be sent off to Florida or the Caribbean. There’s more to the real world than work (thank God) and if co-op programs really intend to open the student to new vistas of human experience then preparation for a 20 hour work week would seem to be in order. As it is we need to beconsciouslyaware of the individual contribution of all disciplines and not be so specialized that anything outside of our own rather narrow field of vision becomes ‘news’. Quite apart from the drawbacks of such a mental attitude in a world where each of US is called to be a veritable jack-of-all-trades, the functions ‘of ignorance can be socially destructive as history has revealed oncountless occasions.’ I Continued on page 8

AN EVENING .

OF COMEDY * WITH’ THE ’

Satellites are being used for international spying purposes and surreptitious weather control, say experts from the space technology industry. . A seminar on Engineering and space technology centering on the theme “The Professional Engineer in Today’s Society” attracted students from across the country. The Fourteenth Congress of Canadian Engineering Students, held January 6-10, was hosted by Engineering Societies A and B at Kitchener’s Valhalla Inn. Dr. David Low, Assistant Secretary for the University Branch of the Ministry of Science and Technology, ran through a history of Canada’s role in space exploitation. He mentioned the fact that Canada was the third nation to enter space, the first launch taking place in 1962. Since then Canada has had nine satellites. Low also discussed the agreement Canada holds with the European Space Agency, the most active member of which is France. ’ As listed -by Low, the federal government’s space strategy contains the following elements: * the service of national needs * a transfer of technological expertise from government to industrial circles * international co-operation in the field * interaction between government, industry and the universities to facilitate research, design and training, as well as the formation of policy and legislation. Discussing, federal expenditures on such programs, Low produced charts s&owing the rise to $70 million in 198 1 from $15 million in 1969. The bulk of this spending is granted to commercial interests, which are located in nearly every province:‘ Dr. Claus Wagner-Bartak, the man responsible for the development of the space shuttle Columbia arm, told delegates that Canada now leads the world in the manufacture of Remote Manipulating .Systems (RMS), the proper name for the arm. This important component of the mission was the only system built outside of the U.S.

The arm has three parts, the shoulder,.elbow and, wrist. Cameras are mounted on the latter two sections, and the entire arm is manipulated by the control pan mounted on .the ship’s interior, Wagner-Bartak explained. During the question-and-answer period following the seminar, Wagner-Bartak addressed the controversy over the- dissatisfaction with the arm’s operation expressed by the astronauts on the Columbia’s second , voyage. He said the problems were caused by the astronauts’ unfamiliarity with the system. In the 196Os, the emphasis of Canada’s space program was the exploration and expansion of contemporary knowledge of the ionosphere level. With the dawn of the ‘7Os, the focus changed to communications, Taylor said. Taylor dealt mainly with remote sensing work by satellites in his address. Satellites are used in this capacity for weather prediction and geological surveying, especially petroleum exploration. For such work the satellites employ many bands of the electromagnetic speetrum, including microwave radiation. Taylor also mentioned the “tremendous economic and social benefits” of satellite use, specifically in Search and Rescue operations (SAR). Satellites can monitor distress signals over a far greater range than can a ground station. The ability of the Canadian Coast Guard and other SAR teams has greatly improved sincwe the launch of the first SAR in the early 197Os, Taylor said. John Stewart, also of Spar Aerospace, discussed the app&ication of satellite capabilities on the everyday world. He cited the use of telecommunication satellites for the relay of transoceanic telephone and television signals. Because of such technology, Taylorexplained, it is now possible for a surgeon operating in Canada’s north to be aided by a surgeon in the south, communicating via satellite. Stewart also stressed that the end of development has not been reached in the field of space technology, and that the opportunities for engineers from all disciplines are vast. Todd Schneider

So if you’re still scouting around for useful courses be a utopian and think- in terms of a broad education. And remember that for all the drawbacks of Plato’s lengthy discourse (which I’m told is a response toThrasymachus’ question on the nature ofjustice), the Republic is an informative testament to co-operative education. The. mind, the spirit and the body become components of the human systemall of which need to be fully exercised. y Bramwell Osula Sociology

To the editor: In last week’s edition of Imprint, I had the unfortunate opportunity to read Mr. Francis A. Chow’s letter to the editor, in which he asked the question, “Sure, the world needs artsies, but how many ?’ My only possible reply to such an inane query would be that Mr. Chow presumably thinks that the -purpose of a university education is to get oneself ajob upon graduating. May I remind him that the purpose of a university education is to have a university education. Period. It is not a training ground for employment. If a particular university degree does allow one a certain job, there is assuredly nothing wrong with that, but the job should not be the purpose of the education. Consequently, it is irrelevant if certain arts degrees such as philosophy or medieval studies do not promise high-paying jobs upon graduation; it is not their purpose. It really irks me how certain factions of the campus continually say things like, population ‘Classical Civilization, eh? What kind ofjob is that going to get you?” “< Another aspect of Mr. Chow’s letter which 1 found extremely irritating was that he seemed to equate what society needs with whatjobsare available. 1Just because a certain graduate cannot get a job that relates to what he took at university, does that infer that he/she is not needed in society? (If this is the case, a few kinesiology graduates better-get their nooses ready.) The concept is ludicrous. If studentsare -paying for even part of their university education, they should be able to be taught whatever. is interesting to them. If, as Mr. Chow appears to infer, we should get rid of those artsie courses which have no use (i.e. low job availability), we are infringing upon the rights of allowing people to take what theyfind interesting. Infringing on a person’s freewill is a very dangerous proposition, Mr. Chow. Justin Hollands 1st year General Aits

To the editor: I wish to make a few comments in regard to John W. Bast’s critical critique of Absence of Malice. Bast’ was correct in stating that the movie moved too slowly. I feel that the movie was released in an era when people like a plot to be full of sexual or violent incidents, in, contrast to ,Absence of Malice. This movie has an excellently developed plot. The saddest thing is seeing that the critics have been socialized into this modern train of thought. When a critic can’t sit through a movie that has as its most violent scene an incdmplete rape, maybe our movie industry will never get back to good movies. Bas was also correct in saying “there is a certain predictability about this” (the love affair between Gallagher and Carter). It is predictable because movie-makers realize certain viewers will criticize a movie without large amounts of violence - Heaven forbid that there be no sex as well. It is amazing that a criteria for a good movie today is sex. -Yet, according to Bast it must be unpredictable. Seems contradictory to me!! But, this contradictory statement is not the only one Bast has in his review. Bastclaims that Rosen, the assistant D.A., is a good villain. First of all Rosen is not Assistant D.A,_but head of the Strike IForce. Secondly, how can a villain be good. A villain can be well acted by the actor, but not good. ’ The real taste of the author of the review shows through in his comments on.old Judge Wells. Mr. Bast finds Judge Wells’ scene to be the best because of the Judge’s humour. Too bad that this humour is based on puns. Some great literary artists have called puns the lowest form of humour. Personally, I recommend the movie, Absence of Malice; to anyone who is sick of 6 violence, and/or tasteless. sex. Also if you

would just like a change of pace, this movie would be of interest. If you don’t fall into these categories, I suggest you contact John W. Bast and get together to watch Rollerball which has lots of both, Sex and Violence, with little to no plot. Michael J. Donohue Enjoyer of Good Movies

Scathing review example of confused negligence To the editor: In the Jan. 8. issue of Imprint McMullen gave, what I and others consider, a scathing review of Reds. It is quite evident that, as a reviewer of the given material surrounding the Russian , Revolution, McMullen flit\ters by, freely with the confused negligence of one totally devoid of knowledge governing this period of early~twentieth century history. Let us begin with his first incorrect assumption: “It covers several minor characters in the Russian revolution.” I beg to differ here; if McMullen is calling Zinoviev (brilliantly portra,yed by Jerzy Kozinsky in his first role as an actor) and Karl Radek “minor-characters” he is very much mistaken. Zinoviev, along with his side-kick, Kamenev, were among the top leaders in the Soviet Union. With the death of Lenin ( 1924)a committee of five (i.e. consisting of Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamenev, Stalin, and Bukarin) ruled the country temporarily. Karl Radek, as a personality in the revolution, was the one who negotiated with the Germans and arranged passage for all Bolsheviks, Mensheviks, and Socialists in Switzerland on a specially sealed train, from Germany to Russia, at the time of the February-March Revolution (19 17) and the emergence of Alexander Kerensky (portrayed in Reds by his son Oleg Kerensky) as the head of the LiberalDemocratic provisional government. Secondly, this movie is NOT about “the rise of communism in both-America and Russia”. New York is NOT where a “happy group of socialists” congregate. Perhaps McMullen should go to see Reds again in order to see that the first half of the film is about: a) the emerging social consciousness’amongst the ‘exploited’ works of America, b) the change and spiritual unification of the proletariat (NOT the peasants) under the banner of Bolshevism in Russia, and c) if they were “happy”socialists in New York,, then why did they protest and demonstrate against the social injustices occuring in America? It seems to me that to bea socialist means to be socially aware oft he grim realities that often do more harmfhan good to society as a”whole. Thirdly, McMullen has given glib praise to Jack Nicholson for his portrayal of Eugene O’Neill, a role that barely appears, except for a . few times in order to supply an element of cynicism. Fourthly, the last half of the film, after the intermission, is about the bureaucratisation of the Russian Revolution (i.e. the October Revolution of 19 17), Zinoviev’s co-opting of’” Jack Reed into working for the Ministry of Propaganda, and Reed’s eventual disillusionment of the ‘new order’ in Russia. His (Reed’s) death scene is NOT long, nor is it agonizing. Fifthly, and this covers several points, the dialogue IS complex, but had McMullen bothered to show any mature attempt to understand then his remarks would not have been so ignorant. Finally, I agree that the semi-documentary technique was a “nice touch”, but I think McMullen’s bias showed a definite lack of interest in the story. In his article he summarizes that Redp “could have been a wonderful love story, a marvelous political statement . . .“, and yet it did not occur to him ,that it was quite possibly both rolled into one intricately woven story. Oh, forsaken isa lowly reviewer to miss the point of a film. If only he had understood. If only he had read his history - If only, if only . . . * A. J. Waterman

“They can scarce be called who must hear and read a thing beforethey will venture to declare their opinion.Anybody can do that. ” - John Gay It is a dying civilization that allows public fornication, excretion, and consumption of alcohol. New Orleans only permits the latter, and then only in paper containers. Nevertheless, she is dying, and she knows it. She survived the Civil War and the Reconstruction, but entered a long, slow decline with the new century. She is built upon soil stolen from the heartland of America by the Mississippi, which turns into a long mud lake and deposits her precious cargo just before entering the Gulf of Mexico. This is no longer a boon; they have to keep dredging the channel. As in most of the South, splendour and squalour exist side by side. One can take the St. Charles streetcar to the end of the line, some seven miles, and pass through a series of neighbourhoods filled with huge, opulent, privately restored antebellum mansions. Yet a few blocks perpendicular to the route are black pocket universes of broken glass and barred windows. There are few tall buildings, since the swampy ground requires them to go almost as far down as up. The most striking modern architecture is the Louisiana Superdome, an enclosed sports stadium rising like a mutant button fungus from the primordial ooze. The citizens of Louisiana did not want the Superdome; they voted against it, but it somehow got built, and it is with a mixture of avarice and contempt that they tolerate the mindless influx of alumni for the Sugar Bowl, one of those myriad college games that infest the New Year’s holiday. The “home” team this year was the University of Georgia Bulldogs, in red and white, featuring the Neckless Wunderkind, running back Herschel Walker. They faced the Pittsburgh (“Pitt”) Panthers, in blue and yellow, led by the quarter-backing of Heismann candidate Dan Marino. No point spread was quoted. Three o’clock in the afternoon of 1 January found me in a bar on Bourbon Street, the main drag in the French Quarter. The street was thronged with Georgia fans, whole families dressed in scarlet jackets and white cowboy hats, with pennants and buttons that said “Shitt on Pitt”. I was with a couple who had fallen in love too recently to be aware that much else existed besides each other. We had all been orbiting for far too long, and had become a little unnerved by the constant chanting. “Shih dawn Piyut!” they cried. “Jawjah! Buhll-dawgs! Her-sheyll! Waugh-ker!” (It is a law in America that any football player of merit must take a twosyllable name.) Enough of this kid stuff, I suddenly said, crumpling my beer cup,in my fist. This was not as effective a gesture as I had hoped, as the cup was nearly full. I wiped my hand on my shirt and brought out a folded piece of paper that I had obtained during a visit to Berkeley last summer. One day I had looked out the window and noticed the nextdoor neighbour of the woman we were staying with, a gentle, long-haired man in granny glasses, a tie-dyed gypsy shirt and jeans with peace signs on them. I conquered my initial impulse, which was to call the police and have him taken away, and instead went over to talk to him. It turned out that he had run one of the biggest home labs for recreational pharmaceuticals during the ‘60’s, specializing in LSD. I told him I’d never seen the stuff. He went inside and came out with the paper. Inside were two tiny orange pills. So this is acid, I said. Well, no, he said, that’s just what it looks like. Those are actually tiny time capsules from a Contac-C. I smiled and folded the paper up and in New Orleans on New Year’s Day I unfolded it and laid it on the table.

A Peculiar Sense, of Doom

We always talked about trying it, I said, now’s our chance. I was speaking to him of course. She was much more adventuresome, and had the sense to see that I was trying to embarrass him. But before she could defend him he started trying to defend himself. Not here, he said. Where else but in a . place this crazy, I said, knowing he’d insist on alocked room devoid of blunt instruments before proceeding to the second line of defense. We argued fitfully for a few more minutes, though I knew he wouldn’t. He had been in Berkeley - but he had kept his insights to himself. Curse it, I said finally. I swallowed one of the pills, put the other on the table and walked out. I had no idea why I did that. It was hard to believe that only a few hours previous I had breakfasted on egg Sardou, quail in burgundy sauce and crepes Fitzgerald, and that in just a few hours I would reach the opposite pole. But ‘tis the season to be apocalyptic, and all that, and with such a carnival of madness going on about me there was only one acceptable course of action. The first order of business was obtaining a ticket.

“Unanimouspraise by the critics can‘stillfill a theatrefor a short time, but their heaviestbroadsideswill not diminish the queues for a celluloidqueenor for afarce that hasfaithfully reached the knuckle.“’ - Eric Keown A man’s reach must always exceed his grasp. Who said that? I suppose it was me, trying to make excuses for yet another excess committed in the name of journalism. And in December two.of those excesses were pursuing me. I ran south. I had gone to Las Vegas in August specifically to use her as a metaphor for the American condition and, somewhat convolutedly, the elitist rebellion that runs through much of creative writing. It seemed to tempt fate to ask New Orleans to be my oracle this time. Yet that is the curse of critics: we must find metaphors where none exist. One of my phantoms wore the face of Howard Cosell. I do not have the temperament to be a sportswriter; I can’t get my tongue far enough out of my cheek. I didn’t heed the warning of an admonition by the women’s cross-country coach, a man I admire and respect, that I had stepped a little out of bounds in a lighthearted article about his girls. So the reaction to a spurious item I planted about a totally imaginary men’s synchronized swimming team was a complete surprise. Not only did the women’s team take offense, but the men’s team of a completely unrelated sport decided that it was a concealed jab at them. I was not in the office when their delegation arrived, but their objection was sufficiently violent that a staff member advised me that perhaps I should avoid sportswriting for a while, for reasons of health. (As far as I know this was not an official edict. The sports editor was very supportive of both articles - but she has also been avoiding me for the last two months.) ’ ‘The other phantom looked like Northrop Frye. Late in the term, I attempted to review a Greek drama about which I knew next to nothing. I didn’t like it; but I realized that no one would be interested in my saying so. Accordingly, I wrote the review in an unorthodox style, as a ,knee-jerk letter of support attacking a (nonexistent) critical drubbing. This confused a lot of people but eventually angered the cast, several of whom wrote letters pointing out that a critic should not use other people’s creative efforts as fodder. In the normal course of things they would be completely right. But we are not dealing with the normal course of things. -.

“Sometimesa wrll rather cavil at the surface than give judgement in depth.“- Christopher Fry About five o’clock I headed out of the French Quarter and started trekking the mile to the Superdome. Instead I found myself, somehow, in the lobby of the prestigious Fairmont Hotel, where the Georgia team was staying. It was a riot of red, with the revolving doors choosing people at random from the jam-packed interior and hurling them into the street like flecks from a paint stripper. I got as far as the elevator, which seemed to be guarded, and the journey took me twenty-five minutes. “How ‘bout them dawgs!” people kept yelling at me. This was some sort of slogan. How ‘bout them, I kept replying, which I suspect was the wrong response, since that was as far as any of the conversations got. I also noticed someone selling “Clemson Sucks” bumper stickers. It turned out that Clemson was the major rival of Georgia. Teams are not ranked in the college system by any sane win-loss-tie method, but by two competing polls of wireservice sportswriters. Thus Pitt, who was #l before the last game of the season, dropped to #8 or #10 (depending on whether you believe UP1 or AP) after losing to Penn State. Despite this confusion, it seemed to be accepted that Georgia had a chance to earn #1 if they beat Pitt and if Clemson simultaneously lost the Orange Bowl. Great, I thought. Under a large sweater I was wearing the only shirt in my possession, which was a Clemson tiger-paw Tshirt. As it turns out, the only problem I had was later on, when I got into a glass elevator overlooking the thirty-story interior lobby of the Hyatt Regency. It was filled with Bulldog fans. Whatchoo wearin’ that shirt for, boy, they said. I’m from Canada, I said, I’m not even sure where Clemson is. They were not convinced. We won’t let you leave the elevator ‘till you say Go Dawgs, they said. Go Dawgs, I said. I have no guts. In retrospect, I was never in much danger from my clothing; the Georgia and Pitt fans were too busy hating each other. But this is America, I kept thinking, where the most popular movie of the year allowed kids to chortle in glee as a Nazi walked into an airplane propeller. America, where even the metermaids are armed. If you try to get to the meter before them, they blow your head off. (That’11 teach the stupid shit to argue with the law.) No, the real danger was within. It suddenly struck me that those pills may not have been just Contac-C. Could that relic have given me real acid as a joke? He never looked trustworthy. I had enough problems coping without a head full of chemicals. And the truly horrible thing was, given the chaos about me, unless something really outlandish happened like the whole city folding itself up into a small cube - there was no way I could tell for sure.

the sportsfield instead of the battlefield. My nose started to bleed from the altitude. I gripped the railing firmly. In a crowd of seventy-seven thousand, there are many tragedies, but I was not going to be one. Surprisingly, this is one of the better points to see such a game from. True, it would be difficult to tell the sex or race of an average naked human being standing on the field. But such things are not important in football. The players had colourcoded numbers on their backs, the ball was a different colour than the field, and the cheerleaders were too tiny to be distracting. A global overview was possible, whereas at lower levels the strategy gets lost in a welter of bodies. There were giant TV screens hung from the ceiling carrying the ABC feed, and everyone’s eyes turned up after each scrimmage to catch the instant replay. Unfortunately, from our angle only the bottom half of one was visible. From time to time a set of perfect Southern legs would dance across it. There was also an announcer, but due to the yelling of the crowd it was not possible to catch more than one word in three, and the audible parts tended to be routine requests to stay off the field. The crowd made so much noise that the Pitt offense couldn’t hear Marino’s instructions. They repeatedly went offside or got illegal procedure calls. Their first scoring The problem we face extends beyond considerations of drive ended on a 4th-and-l situation around the Georgia 20 creativity in criticism, to confusion over the role of Imprint. Give a bunch of inexperienced students several thousand when Marino threw away the sure first down to gamble in vain on a touchdown pass. After that both teams gave up the ghost dollars to put out a newspaper, and what you get will bear little and shuttled dispiritedly between each other’s 30-yard lines. resemblance to what you want. Tell them it has to be weekly, I had every football cliche within ten feet of me. My left-hand so that the things they write about are for the most part over neighbour wore an earphone radio throughout the game, and gone by publication, and normal journalistic practise goes listening to the play-by-play. The woman below knew all the out the window. players by name and encouraged them: “C’mon, Sammy!

Articles written in standard pyramid form are To my right one man quoted statistics incessantly at his forgotten by the time the page is turned; so idiosyncratic friend, who screamed bloody murder at every call against styles and gimmicky leads are used to try to extend the time of Georgia, and both of them explained things condescendingly retention to a few hours. to their pretty airhead wives. The wives alone I forgave, when We shout, squeal, whine, cajol, bellow, make flashy moves they smiled at me. I ignored the rest, and concentrated on with pen-swords we don’t k now how to handle, and all of it what I knew, which was that Walker wore #34 and Marino delivered into a vacuum. Our primary purpose has become to threw the ball. The Georgia strategy seemed to be to give the entertain, to relieve a bit of the tedium of Friday classes ball to Herschel. The Pitt strategy was to pray until three but, like court jesters, some of us take delight in seeing how far into that darkness we can penetrate before all hell breaks seconds remained on the clock, then run like hell up the middle. loose. At the half (Georgia 7 Pitt 3) I discovered another reason The Superdome is one of those structures that seems larger why these seatswere unpopular: the marching bands were on the inside than it does on the outside. It is immense enough almost as interesting as the game, which must be a hard truth that sound takes a noticeable time to get from one end to the for the fans to face. They still cheered wildly. Waterloo, of other. This caused problems not only with the national course, is spared all this idiocy, being blessed with a losing anthem, where the side opposite the band was a good halfteam. I do not mean that sarcastically. With the Warriors at verse behind throughout, but with the cheers. “Jaw-jab!” one one-and-whatever, they can play for the sake of the sport, and side would yell. “Jaw-jab!” the other side would respond, we get the wonderfully offbeat and clanky Warriors Band confused. instead of John Philip Sousa meets Sergeant Bilko.

with Georgia in command again, I lost interest. It was time to explore. I started slowly down the stairs, which seemed to be covered with crawfish guts. Every so often the crowd would rise and scream, and I would wrap both arms and one leg around the centre railing to avoid being thrown into the second tier. At the bottom was a man in a toga. “I am Virgil, your guide,” he intoned. I almost ran past him. First the leather freaks in the Vieux Carre and now this. Why don’t women ever try to pick me up? The corridors of level 5 were almost deserted; those tickets were sold in the boondocks, and people who had to travel to the game weren’t about to waste time organizing discussion groups. The way down was by long, sloping corridors looking like wallpapered overflow spillways. Level 4 was private box seating; the old boys had come out in force. The way in was barred by armed guards. I looked at their guns. They looked at my Clemson shirt. I went on to level 3. The average age of the spectators seemed to diminish as one got lower, but the fact remained that the vast majority of the crowd hadn’t attended university in over five years, which confirms the awful truth that there is no life after graduation. Five years after leaving Waterloo, of course, one has difficulty remembering its name. Level 3 had the Stadium Club, for rich immigrants, Jews, blacks, and others who couldn’t get into the aristocracy. I was able to stand here for a while before I was challenged. I thought of flashing my Imprint press card, but it looks like it came from a box of Krispy Krunch.

At level 2 the earnest craziness began, It was on the first tier, and from there it is no longer possible to tell what is going on down on the field. The crowd had developed an interesting cheer: they would shout “Bulldogs!” on a kickoff, with the first syllable elongated until the ball was actually kicked, then bark three times. If you have never heard forty thousand people trying to bark in unison, do your best to avoid it. I had hoped to avoid level 1 as well, but all the exits were there. The English language is not suited to such a scene. There were frozen strawberry daquiri and mixed drink bars for those trying to keep some semblance of dignity. There were beer bars selling regular, deluxe and giant economy size, which came in paper buckets like fried chick& The all-youcan-drink troughs were thronged with people.

There were no hot dogs available, perhaps on the grounds that protein would only inflame the aggressive tendencies of the fans, but there were nachos, tortilla chips with cheese melted on them. They had given up trying to sell them individually and were just shovelling them out into the crowd. There were hawkers offering Georgia pennants, noisemakers, buttons, rubber bulldog masks, and guns shaped like cigarette lighters. There were midgets offering sexual services delivered in such a way so as not to interefere with one’s appreciation of -the game. From time to time I would trip over some fragment of the anatomy of a former Pitt fan. At the two minute warning, Georgia was ahead 20-17. Pitt was trying hard to get into field-goal range. I was trying hard to get around to the other-side of the Dome, the exit closest to the bus station. I wanted only to get out of New Orleans, to get to some sane place like Detroit, where everybody hates everybody else and any organized group of more than three people is immediately annilhilated by the Powers That Be. But the Georgia bucks were out cruising now, searching for some after-game companionship. I was nearly trampled by a I group of them trailing after a very pretty girl in Pitt colours who had apparently rebuffed their advances. “Kiss my ass, we’ll make it a love story!” shouted one. “I bet she bangs the whole team after the game!” lamented another, desperately. I came to the edge of a vast beer lake, apparently caused by a broken main. It seethed and foamed like some malevolent animal. The way was blocked by a horde of Georgia fans shouting, “We’re #l! We’re #l!” Luckily for me they did not know Clemson had just stomped all over their opponents in the Orange Bowl and sewed that spot up. I was driven forward. The beer rose over my ankles; over my knees. . . Meanwhile, on the field, Pitt was in a 4th-and-5th situation on the Georgia 33, with 35 seconds left. They would have only a couple of plays to get the tying field goal. The ball was snapped to Marino. Georgia blitzed six men at him. His primary and secondary receivers were neck-deep in defenders. In the end zone, John Brown had ditched his cover. The ball spun, soared high above the Astroturf . . .

“Almost always, the opinion which a critic is calledupon to expressis not a reasonedjudement alterable by arguement.It is a report on an emotional reaction subconsciou& experienced during the action of the play, and is not susceptibleto argument at all.19 - W. A. Darlington There was once this paper called the Chevron, and it was the official student newspaper. But it angered the students with its politics, and in their usual bumbling manner they took about sixteen months to deprive it of its official status and give it to a paper known as Imprint. Since then there has been very little complaint. But the Imprint has committed virtually every major sin that the Chevron was accused of. We have had non-students in paying positions. We have discouraged new writers from joining staff. We have had an editor who was a political radical - though she was a feminist, and it is not as easy to object to that as Maoism. There are differences, of course. In its heyday the Chevron had several contributors who could write the pants off anyone working for Imprint today. But it never, on the whole, developed a sense of humour. The Imprint at leastrealizes that there are times when one should try to be funny. The thing I mourn for most about the Chevron is its dialogue. It used to have three, sometimes four pages of letters railing against this and that, lengthy arguments carried on over several months, satire, obscurity, obscenity, great flaming diatribes for and against dialectical materialism that everyone cursed for their wordiness - but read faithfully every week. Well, goddamn it all to hell, who’s out there now? What happens to those bundles of papers left lying around? We hear from those who we directly affect by our articles - but who gives a damn what the actors in a play think about being slagged? Don’t the rest of you cursed preterite sheep have any opinions? It seems unfair to demand spirit from you when I’ve just seen enough to last a lifetime, unfair to expect responsibility in this medium, not in the perverted state it’s been put into. We’re autonomous, independent, and we won’t listen to anyone unless they drag our faces right up to theirs and scream at us. And just like in the Chevron days, appeals to journalistic ethics will be laughed at. After all, you let us write the rules.

As for the Super Bowl - er, I mean Sugar - oh, curse it completely and indefatiguably, it was a pathetic little contest that proved absolutely nothing. Football is a stupid, atavistic sport. The spectacle of two lines of men whose only function is to ram into each other like mountain goats is rendered even more absurd by a plethora of confusing regulations and a specialization that extends as far as linesmen assigned to particular parts of the opposing player’s body to maim or break. For what it’s worth, the crucial incident of the whole experience occurred the night before, New Year’s Eve. We had a third-floor room in the Royal Sonesta Hotel, overlooking Bourbon Street, which was a wash of red. On the balcony below us a local TV station set up their cameras. They turned klieg lights on the crowd, which responded by

.NAME THE PLACE‘ CONTEST!! THE PRIZE: ONE PINBALL MACkllNE

staring upward, waving, climbing all over each other, displaying signs lauding ABC, chanting, and barking. Out of camera range, a whip orchestrated the cheers. “Shih dawn Piyut!” they yelled, too drunk with glory to realize that it wouldn’t make it past the censors. From time to time, one would notice me, a floor above, and shout, “How ‘bout them dawgs?” By midnight even pedestrian traffic was halted. The whip made everyone count down from five. No one said Happy New Year or sang Auld Lang Syne. They waved their fists and shouted. They would remain staring at the lights long after the cameras had been put away. I sat by the open window. The couple were behind me on the bed. Holding our bottle of champagne out the window, I opened it with shaking thumbs. The cork spun, soared high above Bourbon Street. . . History records that John Brown caught that touchdown pass, and the University of Pittsburgh Panthers won the 48th annual Sugar Bowl Classic by a score of 24 to 20.

The list of songs which are most beloved by Klaatusiafis. is endless, and includes the orchestrated Calling Occupants, the very weirdly electrical Silly Boys, the soft rock Knee Deep in Lobe, and the hard rock HotBox City. Also add to this list Sub Rosa Subway, Hope, Madman and The Anus of Uranus and my favourite, Sell Out. This is just a small sample of their diversified music. Joining them at the WMI will be Mike Gingrich and Gary McCracken, both members of the hard rock group Max Webster. Gingrich will be playing bass and McCracken will perform on the drums.

Klaatu (and friends) will be gracing the stage at the Waterloo Motor Inn this coming Thursday, the 21st of January. The. band is bound to draw Klaatusians (according to Webster’s Dictionary of Wierd and Wild Terms, Klaatusians are those people who are devoted followers of Klaatu, but you knew that already didn’t you?) from all over the area. Klaatu has a following almost as big as Rush. Actually, it is almost a cult, but not quite.

Leizcockportrayal UW Arts Centre’s first oneman show of the New Year is “Leacock at Leisure” - Ric Wellwood’s remarkable portrayal of Canadian humourist Stephen Leacock. The show, playing-for one night only on January 23 at 8:00 p.m. in the Theatre of the Arts was created by Wellwood as a tribute to the wit and wisdom of a man admired and loved. Since its premiere at the Gallery Theatre in London, Ontario, the show has travelled to Harbourfront in Toronto, Leacock’s home at Old Brewery Bay in Orillia, Hamilton Place and back to London and the Southern Ontario area where it has played to standing-room only audiences. During its tour, “Leacock at Leisure” caught the eye of CBC Television, which promptly signed Wellwoodfor two television specials, filmed at the Leacock home in Orillia. ’ In addition to his talents as an actor , Wellwood has been a director, produc.er, writer-for the stage, screen and telelecturer in broadvision, casting and co-founder of the first Canadian school of Broadcast Journalism.

Imprint

Alberta, according to the band’s lead guitarist, . Paul Weston. The content of Bully’s album drops the band into the No Wave bracket,! as the players seemed to rely on various influences throughout the course of the night. The show presented Friday, included bits of cover material by British greats, such as the Beatles, the Kinks and the Who, as well as a good portion of Bully’s innovative and up-tempo I. music; It was the cover matieral, however, coupled with drawn out instrumentals and solos, that hampered the band. Their presentation failed to evolve from the stage to the core of the audience and, therefore, very few became totally involved with the melodies.. Pqtel MacLeod

- A brikf roundup of movies encountered during the holiday season, new and old: Ragtime is by far the best of the lot. Adapted from E.L. Doctorow’s pop fantasy of life at the turn of the century which wove fictional and historical personalities into an intricate pattern, this movie marks yet another triumph for Milos Forman, coming ai it does after his suCcesses in Hair and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. It features James Cagney in his first role in decades, as the New York Commissioner of Police.

Ironically, Ross’ point will not he heeded by audiences, who will be seduced by the very elements he seeks to portrayasridiculous: the major musical fantasies his charaoters pop into regularly, where they lip-synch to original .recordings of the era and tapdance through elaborate homages to Busby Berkeley. Jessica Harper and Bernadette Peters do --justice to >th’eir roles as wife and girlfriend, respectively, but Steve Martin never really rises above Steve Martin, except when he’s dancinig. This movie will sink without a trace,a fate it does . not deserve.

In tion from Peter Weir, who has given us Picnic doing so, he reduc& the plot to dark setpieces at Hanging Rock and The La&t Wave. more suited to the theater, and ckstroysevery bit of joy or beauty that he creates. As if to I saw Andrej Wajda’s Man of iron three days after martial law was declared in Pounderline the message, he tacks on a happy ending’without any justification or attemptat land, and yet there were only thirteen people in contrivance. the theatre. Both this film and its prede-

cessor, Man of Marble, have been quite successful in ,Europe - Iroh won the Palme D”Or at Cannes last year ---but have received little attention here. This inattention is unfortunate, asthe film is an ironic and stirring tribute I to the human spirt. Wajda has made liberal use of actual documentary footage - sometimesskillfully, somet,imes awkwardly - to set his fictional story against the backdrop of the very real events leading to the formation of Solidarity, the independent Polish union. It deals with an &lcoholic journalist, who is assigned by the Ministry to dig up damaging information on one of the leaders of the shipyard strike at Gdansk. The leader is the son of the protagonist of Man of Marble, who was killed in the 1970 riots. Wajda uses this relationship to explore some of,the roots of the current Polish struggle for freedom. As the journalist learns more, he is gradually converted from his apathy to active support of the strikers’ cause’. But just after the signing of the historic agreement recognizing Solidarity, he is unmasked and sent out into the street; where a Ministry official tells him that the agreement is meaningless, that the state could unilaterally cancel it at any time. Wajda’s message is clear: it may be catastrophic to take a stand, but to sit on the fence is worse. The film wasslearly made in a hurry; the wonder is that it was made at all. Wajda is currently under arrest in Poland. For his sake, and for the sake of the other intellectuals and artists in detention, don’t sit on the fence. Go see this movie. It’s the least you can do. Time Bandits is that rarity: a movie for children that’s not condescending, and intelligent enough for adults to appreciate. I haven’t seen anything like it since Jacob Two-Two Meets The Hooded Fang. The fact that it’s directed by Terry Gilliam and features several members of the Monty Python troupe may lead one to believe that it’s a Python relese; it isn’t, and if you go see it thinking that, you’ll only be disappointed. The movie ‘concerns-the adventures of a small boy kursed with unimaginative parents who can only concern themselves with the latest kitchen gadgets (“It can turn a block of ice into Bee! Bourguignon in seven seconds!“).

When a troupe of dwarfs fall through a “timehole” into his bedroom, he follows them. They turn out to be subcontractors on the creation of Earth, fired for design flaws, who are busy jumping through time and looting. *There followsa series of pocket adventures concerning such people as Napoleon, Robin Hood, and the king of Mycenae,culminatingin a confrontation between the Supreme Being and the Evil One. Throughout, Gilliam displays a fine sense of art direction in his use of imaginative settings. Watch for subtle details which add depth: notice, for example, that the aged ruins in the final confrontation are made of huge Lego blocks! This film isn’t for v&y young children, as it contains some terrifying and violent. images. But anyone who’s watched TV past 9100 should be cleared to see it. It’s particularl’“J recommended for university students who recognize that “childish” isn’t necessarily a derogatory term. Time Bandits looks even better when compared to Raiders of the Lost Ark, the midsummer release that became the highestgrossing film of 1981. Raiders starts out as a . fairly entertaining adventure story, becomes silly, and then just plain dull, with h ridiculou> deus ex machina at the end. It’s a James Bond movie without the sex. The most horrifying thing about it is the way in which its youthful viewers take pleasure seeing Nazis die in a ’ number of gruesome ways. There is violence in; Time Bandits, but it is sobering and gut-’ wrenching, notamuiing. It may be stuffy of me, but I don’t like the way Raiders perpetuates , the idea of death as entertainment. Finally, we have Arthur, an agreeable bit of fluff about a very rich, spoiled Dudley Moore who falls in love with Liza Minnelli but whose far-$ly wants him to marry someone else. Moore is a surprisingly funny drunk and, thankfully, most of the movie deals with his interactions with the rest of the world, the best of which are his exchanges with his butler and surrogate father, Jbhn Gielgud. Liza Minelli, who by now has 16ng since used up t\e credits she earned with Cabaret,only proves that s6e hasn’t the timing to even be a straight man -er, woman. But- there is enough laughter in this movie to allow one to ignore her. qrabhatiar Ragde > __.----

Travelling to the east coast, the basketball Warriors saw mixed results at the Acadia Tournament. In their first game against the hosting Acadia Axemen, Waterloo took a stunning win, 100-80, during which Rich Kurtz scored a career high 3 1.points. Savich and Van Oorschot were good for 14 points a piece. Playing St. Francis Xavier the Warriors did a complete turn around and lost 82-63. All Canadian Marc Brodie returned in full force for St. FX after a serious~ankle injury in last years CIAUs in Waterloo. Brodie scored 23 points for the X-men. X-man Hatch, a Can-

Savichwas consistent for Waterloo putting in 17 points’, ’ In their final round robin game, which the coach considered a great game, the Warriors fought their way to the finish losing 88-80 against the second ranked St. Mary’s Huskies. The score stood at 74-71 with one minute remaining. A flurry of fouls and fast scores finished with Waterloo on the short end. Van Oorschot finished with 18 points, Savich and Bob Urosevic finished with 14. Lost to the team for thenext two weeks is Rich Kurtz who pulled a hamstring during the

tournament. Kurtz, one of the Warriors key rebounders, wiil be sorely missed in upcoming league games. Peter Savich incurred a minor shoulder injury that didn’t hamper his play in the tournament and should be of little consequence in this weekend’s action. ( Returning to OUAA action the Warriors meet Guelph and Windsor this weekend. Windsor is ranked at numberthree this week, Guelph should place in this week’s top ten. Both will provide tough competition for the Warriors, particularly Windsor who have a powerhouse team again this year. _ Virginia Butler

In weekend action the hockey Warriors took a tumble going down to both Brock and Laurier. Waterloo lost 6-3 to the Brock Badgers and 9-3 to the Golden Hawks. In Friday’s game against Brock, Brock managed to completely undo the Warriors. Although Waterloo outshot the Badgers by a healthy margin the shots simply didn’t penetrate allowing Brock to take the edge. Brock’s first goal was the first of the game slipping past goalie Jamie Britt at 5:25 of the first period. By that time both the first fight and the first penalty had occurred. No one appeared to have any advantages in those. Regardless of the score, Brock certainly did not appear any * too impressive; they had, at one point, a five man to three

man advantage which they never came close to capitalizing on. Late in the first period Waterloo tied it up, the only point in the game they were even witli Brock. Warrior Mauro Zuliani, Waterloo’s biggest player, took a knee capping late in the first period that kept him out of the game until nearly the end of the third. During the second period Brock went ahead, scoring two goals. Earl? in the third the Badgers put in two more to take a commanding 5-l lead. At 12: 11 of the last period though, Waterloo put in another which they quickly followed up to make it a fivethree score. Into the last minutes of the game Brock added a last goal to make the final score 6-3.

Friday,

Warriors Facing Laurier th,e Warriors fared poorly. According to coach Bob McKillop Laurier “put us behind the eight ball” when they racked up three goals in the first 4: 131>f play. “After that,” said the coach, “we didn’t play badly. Our-goal tending let us down a bit.” Subsequently the Warriors will start a new man in goal, Bill Humphreys (who took over in the third period against Laurier) in hopes of bettering the Warrior record. The Warriors play at home against Windsor. Friday Game time is 8:00 p.m. at Memorial Arena.. Saturday, the Warriors travel to Ryerson. Virginia Butler

got tramped by the Western Mustang in Western’s Alumni Hall. Phil Jarrett was good for the game’s first bucket but Western reciprocated quickly and took hold of a turnover to add another two points. The Warriors were playing aggressive man to man ball and did well stacked against Western’s zone defense but both teams were playing hard and Waterloo took the brunt of that with some early fouls. The Mustangs were hot when it came toshots. Conversely yaterloo had great difficulty with their shooting with only a 33% average in the first half. They ran into a fatal combination of dilemmas: shots that didn’t got in and rebounds they couldn’t snatch

back. Western consistently wrestled the ball away from the Warriors on both offensive and defensive boards. They felt thts loss of 6 ft. 4 in. Rich Kurtz sorely since he is usually responsible for most of the Warriors rebounds. ’ By the end of the first half it was evident that the Warriors were in trouble. West&n was up 37-24 continuing to build on a lead with baskets the Warriors couldn’t answer. In the second half Van Oorschot set things in motion dropping the first two points but nonetheless the Warriors couldn’t catch up to the Mustangs. The Mustangs hammered away at Waterloo, amassing a 30 point lead (7444) late into the second half. Almost all of the team saw court time including Ken

Haggert, David Moser and Harry Van Drunen who provided the evening’s host colorful moment. when he was tackled and sent rolling across the floor ‘&ith a pile of Mustangs. In the end though there was” little that the Warriors could do except keep plugging to avoid embarrassment. They’ outscored Western 13 to 10 in the final minutes, to leave the final score 84-57.

Squash season resumes The girls’ varsity squash team is continuing their season after the Christmas break. The returning squad consists of Kathy Campbell, Jennifer Birch-Jones, Lyn Caswell, Sue DeNure, Anne Keeler, Daryl Holley, Dianna Mair, Kandi McElary, headed by coach Wendy Frisby. This past weekend, McMaster hosted an invitational tournament and the following teams entered: Cedar Springs (Hamilton club), Hillside (Hamilton club), Hodge Podge (a group of girls from various clubs), McMaster, MacMauders (also from McMaster), Queen’s, Thistle (Hamilton club), Toronto, Waterloo, Laurier, Western and York. The schedule accompanying this article shows a brief account of the results. Four pools were made up according to the wins or loses in the first to games. Pool A - WW; Pool B - WL; Pool C - LW; Pool C - LL. The results of each of the pools were as follows: Pool A Pool B Pool c Pool D 1 York Queen’s Toronto Cedar Springs 2 Hillside Western . Waterloo MacMauders 3 McMaster Hodge Podge Laurier Thistle At the end of these matches, the winners from the various pools played off which resulted with York in 1st place. In their first match Friday night Waterloo met Hodge Podge for which Karen Jerome, aformerjunior ranked player managed to win her match against Campbell in threegames to two, but not without an excellent fight. Karen has never been known to remove her wadm-up pants at invitationals until this match something Kathy should be proud of. All other members of the Waterloo team lost their matches O-3. In the second round of competition, Waterloo played the MacMaude‘rswhereCampbell won her match in three straight games, but not easy ones. BirchJones and Caswell playing in positions two and three both won their matches 3-1. In4th and 5thpositions, Mairand Denurelost their matches O-3 and 2-3. Due to injury, Mair had been out of playing for ten weeks and had many problems with her serves. These problems got worse when she was called for foot faulting during the second match. The results of the first two games put Waterloo in the C pool that began competing Saturday morning against Laurier. Campbell and Birch-Jones won their matches in three games. Caswell and DeNure both won their matches, but in three of four games. Again, Mair lost her match. In their final match, Waterloo played Toronto and everyone lost but played excellent matches. Campbell, playing against Patty Hogan, a former junior ranked player, was-playing her best squash yet. She won the first two games 10-8 and 10-8, but lost thenext three4-9, l-9, and 6-9. Birch-Jones played an exhausting matchlosing2-3. The Femaining players all lost their matches. In preparation for tournaments, the team plays in interclub matches in the Western Region League on Wednesday nights. Five,,girls are chosen to represent the. team in each tournament. This past Wednesday, the team competed against the Royal City club (Guelph). Unfortunately, the results will not be available until next week. Dianna Mair
