is in jail.

Dr. R. D. Lambert, sociology professor, will be defending UW history professor Leo Johnson before the “committee to investigate the adequacy of cause” who will be considering Johnson’s dismissal. Johnson was sentenced to two years less a day in provincial jail last December after pleading guilty to ten sexual offenses involving young girls. The committee of five considering Johnson’s dismissal have now been selected from a standing committee of nine. Both Tom Brzus-

towski, Vice-President Academic, and Lambert have rejected two members of each of the standing committee, to arrive at the five member working committee. Brzustowski refused to comment on which members of the standing committee had been selected. The committee will now decide on a schedule and select a chairperson. The committee will then h,ear the presentation from Dean R. K. Banks as to why Johnson should be dismissed. Lambert, on behalf of Johnson, will then present his rebuttal of Banks’ arguments. Then, the committee will be talking “to any variety of people” who might help it make up its

fate of Johnson’s , report, according to department chairman.

by T. C. Nguyen Imprint staff The 5 per cent visa student quota introduced by the \Ilathematics faculty will not change the current ratio of visa tudents to total undergraduates in the faculty. Nor will it Lffect admission opportunities for visa students in the first rear. The quota only restricts the number of visa students ntering the Computer Science program. At a meeting last week, the Mathematics Council approved he 5 per cent visa student quota policy. This policy will eserve 5 per cent of total available seats for visa students in he freshman class and the Computer Science program. Dr. Ian McGee, Mathematics faculty and undergraduate ffairs officer, emphasized that the impact of the new policy vi11 be mainly on the visa students already enrolled in the vlathematics faculty. New visa students seeking entry into the ’ acuity in the 1983-1984 year will have the same chances as tudents of previous years. Up to the present, admission to the Mathematicsfacultyfor isa students hasalways consisted of approximately 5 per cent f total seats. The visa student quota policy only formalizes a rocedure which has been followed for many years. The rocedure is also applied at many other universities in jntario.

history

When asked how long the process might take, Brzustowski replied that he didn’t know. “We don’t have much experience (with these kinds of cases.) The policy has been on the books for seven or eight years and it’s only been used once before,” said Brzustowski.

The only significance of the new policy is the 5 per cent quota which will be applied to determine admission to the Computer Science program beyond year one as compared to non-restricted entry in previous years. Beginning in the 1983- 1984 academic years, a maximum of, 15 out of 300 seats available in the Computer Science Department will be reserved for visa students. In the past, any number of visa students meeting the department requirements could be admitted. Admission to the Computer Science program is based on first year academic standings. Most visa students have always been placed among the top of their classes. If no quota is imposed, the proportion of visa to Canadian students could reach as high as 45 to 100 regular students. In comparison to other faculties, the Mathematics faculty has always contained the greatest number of visa students. Statistics from the Office of the Registrar show a visa student percentage of 6.5 to 8.5 from 1979 to 1982 in Mathematics. This percentage is approximately twice the percentage of total visa students in the university. Also at the Mathematics Council meeting, Dr. Bruce Simpson was appointed the new Chairman of the Computer Science Department, effective July, 1984. Dr. Lawson will be acting Chairman from July 1983 to 1984.

Johnson is presently serving a two year jail term, but the Crq’ykn Mttorney’s office is appealing the length df the sentence. Dorothee Retterath, assistant Crown Attorney, said, “In view of public deterrence and the public abhorence at the crimes, the Crown wants a stiffer penalty.” Because she is no longer involved in the case (all appeals are handled through the Crown law office in Toronto), Retterath does not know when the appeal will be heard. In her recommendations, she suggested asking for a significant penitentiary term, which would mean more than two years in jail for Johnson if the appeal were successful.,

A collection of 70 books relating to Polish history, literature and culture has recently been donated to the University of Waterloo Library. The donor is Miss Nowak, a long-time resident of Kitchener, who maintained a special interest in Poland’s history during the period of independence between ’ 19 19 and 1939. With this donation, she has made a significant contribution to the researchers in the fields of History, Russian and Slavic Studies, and English at the University of Waterloo. Included in the collection is _ a Slavonic Encyclopedia (English version) in one volume of 1,400 pages; a selection of photographs; a very detailed description of the period of independence written entirely in the French

In his speech, Wright expressed confidence in the ability of Waterloo students to achieve excellence: “I know of no other university in the English-speaking world that has achieved such success in the quality of its students, in the esteem in which its graduates are held, or in the reputation for excellence and innovation in teaching and research.” Such optimism is a welcome relief from doom-and-gloom stories, and gives hope for the future.

university

that Canada, and the university in particular, imitate the trends in successful economies such as Switzerland, West Germanv. and Japan by concentrating on “rigour in education and training” and “long term competitiveness through research and development .“‘ When questioned on the possibility of limitingenrollment into the already highly competitive Engineering faculty, Wright admitted that standards might have to be raised to ensure quality education. He also raised the possibilty of discontinuing programs which do not have as high a priority as the science and computer majors. To meet the financial challenges of the future, Wright stated that tuition fees would likely increase by 5 per cent in 1983. More importantly, the President put a great emphasis on research grants. He stated: “ I do not believe that we can afford to depend on government and government grants for what we hope to do in the next 25 ye&i-s.” In other words, the university will depend more on grants such as the $5.4 million contribution from IBM, or the $10.5 million Watfund pledges. Many decisions await the faculty and students of the University of Waterloo. Academicdecisions must be realistically made, especially in today’s stifled employment market. For their part, the University Administration will have to make the difficult choice between enrolment limitations or increasing the student body to raise salary levels.

by Paul Moser Imprint staff On Wednesday, University of Waterloo President Douglas Wright gave his first address to the university community. Many members of the faculty and student body were present at the Theatre of the Arts for a somewhat sombre speech. Wright aptly began his discourse with a quotation from Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities: “It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Co-op education at the university has never been in worse shape, yet Wright still had some encouraging words. In these “particularly difficult times,” the University of Waterloo has been dealt a double blow: economic recession and cut-backs in government funding. Wright noted that operating support for universities has fallen 30 per cent in the past decade, and capital support for universities was “virtually eliminated in 1972”. As the President stated, “It has been easier politically to cut back on higher education than in other areas.” One very noticeable result of the decreased funding is the growing student-faculty ratio. Since the President left the university in 1966, that ratio has grown from 11: 1 to 18: 1. The result: “We are not able to serve our students as well as we should.” The Fisher report from September 198 1 concluded that the scale of university activity could not continue unless more money was given to the institution; otherwise, services would have to be cut back. Instead of using these two options, the Administration decided to increase tuitions, cancel programs, and limit enrollment. Then, in September 1982, the Ontario Government introduced its constraint program - the third option was delayed for a year. For the future, the university will “look to maintain or even improve the quality of its freshman intake, rather than reduce the quality to sustain an increased enrollment.” Wright suggested .

by Linda Eickmeier FASS by any other name would not be FASS. FASS is simply the joint effort of enthusiastic, even talented, members of Faculty, Administration, Staff and Students. Annually, these groups of people pool their individual talents to write, direct, produce, and star in a farcical comedy which pokes fun at University life, ranging from western satire to science fiction. It’s a small wonder that after so many shows FASS is still coming up with newand wildly original themes; but, where did all this come from? Well, about 21 years ago a small group of people, sponsored by Circle K, got together and wanted to put on a show of some sort.. . FASS Nite was born! Dr. Ken Fryer, then a member of the math faculty, was one of the founding fathers. He and those he was able to sell on the idea of a variety night began approaching all the other faculties on campus to submit an act (of whatever kind they liked) in order to create an evening that would attract the university community. It turned out to beaneveni.ng of fun and entertainment and the rest is history! As FASS progressed many changes were made to its original format. Enthusiasm grew to necessitate the election of a committee, the writing of the show in the

rat-her than a month before the performance, and the move of performances to the Humanities

Theatre. FASS has suffered many growing pains but has been ‘_ relatively lucky in its continuing support by loyal fans. In fact, there is a second-generation FASS member in this year’s show, “FASS or FICTION”. Dr. T. H. Qualter, an j original member of FASS can be found in the Political Science Faculty. He was involved in one of the very first FASS Nites. Today, some twenty years later, his son Adam is participating in the production of FASS. FASS is not only entertainment, it is a Waterloo tradition. In past years FASS has achieved glories and suffered defeats. One year, tickets went on sale at 7:30 in the morning and the shows were sold out two hours later. On the other hand, in 1972, the Drama Department prevented the movement of FASS into the performing space of the Humanities Theatre. However in 1973 the turn around ,i began for FASS. Year after year faces became more ::,& familiar and dedication to creating a better and bigger .,** show grew. :i;,:;:;{ :.~~~~~.~:~.~:~~..j. ,;.j;,;::;;i :::,., :,: A.... .,__‘:. : .,., :,.,., * ,,.._ ,,..~::~.~:.~~:~e:~.::..:.....~ :.:r..,,i”;‘:. 2::.:::;;, With the growth of FASS also came the question of profit. Since FASS is a non-profit organization, steps had had the audience standing every night the show ran. to be taken to donate the money made from the show. A Titles of shows in past ye-ars have been misleading, certain amount went towards next year’s show, some tempting, or just clever. A few examples are Water Luredo money was allotted for parties, and the rest went towards (1973 Western); St. VaZentineS Day Fassacre (1978) and charity donations for artist/ theatre related organizations.

Your participation and support of FASS is FASS is most famous for its use of puns, groaners, and necessary in the continuation of FASS as a Waterloo one-liners. Also, FASS uses popular tunes and changes tradition. It takes great pride in its work today as it the words to link them with the contents of the play. This prepares to bring you its 21st annual show. Hopefully, year in particular, the singing is outstanding and the lyrics FASS will be performing for as long as the University of are hilarious.

Excerpts

from

Dr.

. . . Externally, we face serious difficulties and problems, in common with many people and institutions in Canada; and these conditions are bound to continue for some time; internally, the University is strong and competent, albeit strained by resource limitations . . . . . . In statistics compiled by the Council of Ontario University and by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities, operating support per university student in Ontario has fallen by about 30% in the past decade. Capital support was virtually terminated in l972. Ontario is now well behind the rest of Canada in real university support per student, and in Ontario, university support has fallen behind support to other sectors . . . . . . Our greatest problem today is excessive teaching !oads and class sizes, and the associated degradation of the teaching environment. Because of the shortage of resources we are not able to serve our students as well as we should, as well as we once did, nor as well as institutions in other jurisdictions are able to do . . . . . . It will be healthier to look to maintain or even improve the quality of our freshman intake, than to reduce that quality -to sustain an increased enrolment. .. . . . The transformation of the economy now taking place, driven by new technologies and international competition, is leading to a more fundamental division in the labour force. In the next few years unskilled workers will face rapidly declining prospects and the role of knowledge-based workers will become much more critical . . . The most successful economies in the world today are resource-poor and technology-rich; Switzerland, West Germany. and Japan. They all put a premium on rigour in education and training. They are all committed to maintaining long-term competitiveness through research and development. . . . It is particularly frustrating, in the short term, to note the degree to which the recession is affecting the co-operative program . . . In the fall term more than 98% of the students going on work terms were placed, and for the winter term the most recent figure I have is that 84.670 have now been placed . . . of the Waterloo Centre for . . . with the establishment Process Development, the Centre for Risk Studies, and the

speech

Institute for Computer Research, we have embarked on new organizational forms for research, along thematic lines . . . . . . We must always keep in mind that all undergraduate education must contain such essential elements of a general education as: the development of abilities to reasoncritically, to write and speak clearly, to take initiatives, to function responsibly and ethically, and an understanding of the place of one’s major field of study in the world . . . . . . Our most difficult budget decision is the weighing of opinion that arises in two ways on the issue of appointments. There is pressure, on the one hand, to make more faculty appointments to ease the student/faculty ratio, teaching loads, and so forth. There is, on the other hand, pressure to raise the student/faculty ratio to maintain or increase salary on salaries have worked - levels. Our processes of consultation well, given the difficult financial context of recent years. I doubt that much of the considerable erosion we have suffered in student /faculty ratio during the past decade can be recovered. If this erosion were to continue, we would probably have to consider terminating some programs . . . . . . We have faced for some years intolerable crowding in a number of buildings . . . . . . We are now seeking overhead provisions in research contracts which include a rent for the facilities used, which in turn can allow us to build or purchase the additional space required to cope with increased research volumes . . . . . . As of today, the WATFUND total of pledges and contributionsstandsat $10,586,000, not counting the recently announced IBM contribution which, in cash and kind is worth $5.4 million.. . . . . Preliminary planning has been initiated for the development of the north campus, and necessary zoning changes have been approved. We have had discussion with a few major corporations about developments in this area, and we are encouraged. No commitments have yet been made, however. . . . . . I do not believe that we can afford to depend on government and government grants for what we hope to do in the next 25 years. I believe that we will have to maximize support from all sectors of the society, in return for our commitment to achievement and excellence . . .

28,1983 -,

Fee increases a bit hard to swallow Start saving your pennies because beginning in May you’re going to have to dig a lot deeper into your pockets than ever before. The reason is the proposed fee increases (residence and athletic fees) which will be presented for approval at Tuesday’s (February I st) Board of Governor’s meeting. Tuition fees have already been approved and increased by the maximum allowed by law. The most disheartening thing about the proposed increases is the fact that percentage wise they are disproportionate to the federal governments recommended guidelines of restraining the economy to six and five per cent over the next two years. Certainly, Vice-President of Finance and Operations Bruce Gellatly would have no problems explaining and demonstrating the budgetary considerations which “necessitate” this year’s 12 per cent increase for the villages. However, on top of last year’s20 per cent jump it seems to be a bit much. It would be more appropriate for the University to do some fine tuning of the expense budget, and also to re-allocate funds from the University’s till, thereby assisting students by cutting back on the size of the increase.

FASS:

tradition

Also, it doesn’t seem fair that there is such a disparity between the increases incurred by Minota Hagey Residence and the Married Students’ Residence compared with those of the villages. How can this be justified, particularly in light of last year’s enormous increase for the villages. If students remain silent, they will continue to get the“fat”end of the stick year after year. The University mentality seems to be that the rank and file students are less apt to complain; consequently, the University can burden them with a little more than the rest. The Athletic Advisory Board’s suggested rate increase (8.8 per cent) in the student athletic fee is very “out of line” considering the Athletic Department had a $3,500 surplus (they call it contingency) in the 1982-83 budget. They are figuring for a $18,265 contingency/ surplus for the 1983-84 budget. It is difficult to understand how the Atheltic Department can justify such a large percentage increase while including such a large contingency within their budget. It becomes even more disconcerting when you consider that at the Athletic Advisory Board’s last meeting it was suggested by a

student. representative that the fee be increased to only $18 per term in order to keep within the 6 and 5 guidelines. This would have resulted in a $3,660 surplus/ contingency, which if added to last year’s surplus would give the department a $7,209 cushion. Why doesn’t the Athletic Department make an effort to give students a break by adhering to the 6 and 5 guidelines? We think that some encouragement to“tow the line” might be effective. We suggest if you are the least bit upset that youapplya little pressure at Tuesday’s Board of Governor’s meeting at 10 a.m. in 300 1 Needles Hall. Maybe some University administrators will take Len Gamache notice. -

with character

The University of Cambridge, England, is surely well steeped in tradition. It is more than 700 years old. Tradition is something that binds a school together; that gives it character and personality. There are so many things at the University of Waterloo that separate students into cliques and camps. When you leave here, will you remember the University of Waterloo?Ordid youspend your years as an (Engineering) (Math) (E.S.) (etc.) student who happened to be studying sixty miles or so from Toronto? A university only 25 years old is very short on traditions. Are there any traditions at Waterloo that bind people together? For 21 years there has been at least one common ground for Faculty, Administration, Staff and Students to meet on: the stage. Temporarily taking the work of writers, actors, technical people, and others, members of virtually every facet of our community combine to create, annually, a fabulous concoction ofjokes, satire, songs, skits, dances, and more for other members of the UW community to enjoy.

FASS is created “by” you in the sense that there is no other organization more representative of students and including all aspects of campus life. FASS is written “for” you in that the shows are always written as one gigantic “in joke” - someone from outside our community doesn’t stand much chance of catching half the jokes. FASS itself has formed its own traditions: the utter groaners of puns; the running gags; the absurd character names; the Friday night late show; but most significantly, the tradition of pleasing audiences night after night after night. This term FASS is being presented in the Humanities Theatre, next Wednesday to Saturday inclusive (two shows on Friday) at 8:00p.m.(7:00and 10:OOp.m. onFriday).Ticketsare$3.00forall nights but Friday late, which cost $3.50. You are in FASS. Don’t miss seeing that - because you may discover that despite all the very real problems you have to deal with, there are some very real delights to go with them. To see is to laugh. And today, isn’t it wonderful to realize there are still many, many things to laugh at - not the least of which is ourselves? See you there. Len Gamache

To the editor: (Re: Uncle Sam’s Boycott Reconsidered, Imprint, Jan. 2 1,1983.) I was rather dismayed by Imprint staffer Ron McGregor’s account of that now infamous Nov. 30, 1982 ESS trip to Uncle Sam’s, a bar in Buffalo NY. Firstly let me state my feeling that the whole issue has been blown out of proportion. Unfortunately it is by way of shabby journalism that an inaccurate picture of reality has been painted. As one who talked civilly and at some length with three of Uncle Sam’s management personnel that night I feel a duty to clear up some of the misinformation circulating about the incident. Uncle Sam’s management, at that time, candidly admitted to me that the ejection of Mr. Philp was unwarranted based on the reasons mentioned by the bouncers. The real reason for the ejection was that once taken outside the establishment Mr. Philp had objected to these initially “unwarranted”reasons. Living in Niagara Falls (Canada), the shoot first-ask questions later modus operandi of bouncers in U.S. bars is somewhat familiar to me. However I do feel some strange honor at being present that night to observe that festival,of pretzel logic. Mr. Philp’s objections outside the bar were understandable, I propose, because he was one who spent many hours in preceding

weeks to organize this trip. The evening ended on a sour note because of the unwillingness of Uncle Sam’s to admit a simple mistake and the scapegoat tactics they used to cover it up. My main objection to the Imprint article centres around their endorsement of the Uncle Sam’s charge that as one of the visiting group I “got very intoxicated and started many fights.” Of course I resent being labelled “veryintoxicated” because this was simply not true and I feel this discription did not apply to anyone else in the ESS group. Furthermore the only fighting witnessed by anyone that night were various group members fighting to hold back laughter at the ridiculous nature of the affair. These false accusations about drunkenness and fighting only serve to weaken the credibility of the establishment. Lastly, and contrary to published reports, the ESS group was not ejected but chose to leave. Uncle Sam’s management informed me that they were quite willing to allow the group to stay until closing if those already ejected stayed outside. Rather thanagree to this proposal and in effect endorse the groundless accusations that led up to it the group exited in protest en masse. 1 hope this account of the situation satisfies Messrs. Romenco, Liddy, and Barr of Math, Eng, and SciSoc (Forum Jan. 21) that the only apology due hereisfrom the Uncle Sam’sestablishment.

To the editor: The January 14 and 2 1 editions of the Imprint carry full page advertisements for the Canadian Armed Forces recruiting sessions taking place on the UW campus on January 26 and 27, 1983. The recruiting sessions are aimed at getting engineering and science students to join the armed forces as military engineering officers, and the advertisements offer these students “professional experience”, “subsidized post-graduate training” and a “competitive salary” if they sign-up. I seriously question the appropriateness of the Imprint running recruiting advertisements for the Canadian Armed Forces. Without any doubt, such advertisements help the armed forces attract students to join up, otherwise they would not want to advertise in the student press. I think that the student press should not assist the armed forces in this endeavour. The Canadian Armed Forces are not defending freedom, sovereignty and peace in Canadaand around the world. First, the Canadian Armed Forces are part ofthe U.S. and NATO military bloc. This military bloc and the military.bloc of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact are both extremely aggressive and expansionist. Both superpowers and their military blocs commit aggression against other countries in order to dominate them and exploit them for their labour and resources. Both superpowers

Essaies by George Elliott Clarke I - Jackson’s “Steppin’ Out” Whether one is under the influence or not, it may be universally agreed that Joe Jackson’s AM hit, Steppin’ Out, is the best piece of music to grace the air-waves since Quincy Jones and Grover Washington Jr. expanded the perimeters of pop with their collaboration on Just The Twc, Of Us. Jackson’s song is a percussive tour de force of driving, jazz-fusion, Latin rhythms, urban and relevant, describing city chaos, angst jabberwocky, yellow cabs, and Dylanesque, Just Like A Woman, loss-love. It tells grittily thegrim proverbs of living in any city in this Depression, in this generation of “gettin’ old before (its) time”. It transforms the blues psychology of 1933, of “catch a train and ride”, into the mod panacea of “get into a car and drive”. It speaks of abandoning the jeremiah-media, being serious, and making a living by surviving. All this without a guitar within earshot! Steppin’ Out is a two-step of tension, an anxious and angry anthem of what it is to “work all day, dance all night” (as Devo put it) to drum-metronome and xylophone-rain. It is the best expression to date of

II - A Recipe for Ecstasy Take one pound of asparagus, one inch of boiling water, a half teaspooon of salt, a peck of freshlyground black pepper, two tablespoons of butter, one cup of bread crumbs, and two tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese and arrange in the following manner. Strip the asparagus of all redundant leaves and its stem-ends. Next, soak the vegetable for twenty minutes in enough salted water to cover it (using one teaspoon of salt for every inch of water required). Then. drain the water and throw it out. Place the asparagus in a saucepan with one inch of boiling water and one teaspoon of salt. Boil the whole kaboodle for 5 minutes uncovered; then, cover it up and boil it for 10 minutes. Drain the water again. Sprinkle the asparagus with black pepper(orcurryif that is your preference). Melt the butter with some cheese, add bread crumbs, and stir the misture over medium heat until it is just golden. Then, pour it over the succulent, mouth-watering asparagus. Voila! Ecstasy!

(Editor k note: We feel that your accusations of shabb?l journalism and of our endorsement of charges made by Uncle Sam S are unjustified.

Here s the paragraph in question: “Farrel (assistant hanag@ at *leSam 5) said that within the last three months a group of U W students visiting the bar ‘got very intoxicated and started ma@ fights. ’ ” Imprint didn’t say that a group of U W students got ver,* into.uicated; Farreldid.

and their blocs are competing for world domination and the expansion of their markets, sources of raw materialsand spheres of influence which is leading them towards a world war. I do not agree that students should serve the aims of either superpower and their military blocs. But byjoining the Canadian Armed Forces they would contribute to the aims of one of them. Second, the Canadian Armed Forces is protecting the U.S. domination of Canada through NORAD. Canada is dominated _economically, politically and culturally by the United States. It is also dominated militarily by the United States through NORAD, which integrates the Canadian Armed Forces into the U.S. armed forces and puts them under the control of a U.S. commander. The Canadian Armed Forces is not dedicated to fighting for the elimination of the foreign domination of Canada and establishing a genuinely independent and sovereign state. Rather, many of its training scenarios are based on suppressing struggles of the Native Indians and Inuit in the case they try to take back their lands from the big American oil and mining corporations and cut off supplies of these strategic minerals to the United States. I do not agree that students should serve in the army that works against the national independence and - sovereignty of Canada. Finally, the Canadian Armed Forces exists to protect the

Mr. Philp’s suggested boycott of Uncle Sam’s, whether official or not is understandable in this context. Whether the boycott is “reconsidered” or not is a moot point. I will not be patronizing Uncle Sam’s again and I suspect this is the case with Mr. Philp and many others who were on the trip. With additional episodes of the Nov. 30th incident Uncle Sam’s can only expect to lose further business. Maybe this eventuality will improve their level of hospitality. Niall McMillan E. S. 4

status quo and put down the legitimate aspirations of the workers, youth, Native people and other sections of the population in Canada. For instance, with the severe economic crisis in the country and the deteriorating living conditions of a substantial section of the population, the government is expecting mounting social protests from people. The news media, for example, is always talking about potential revolts of unemployed youth in the big cities. The Canadian Armed Forces is trained to put down these just struggles of the people for their rights such as the right to a job. In New Brunswick the armed forces has been trained for years in putting down potential riots of workers. I do not agree that students should assist in putting down the struggles of the people for their legitimate demands. The Imprint ran editorials last semester generally supporting peace and opposing foreign aggression. I think that to .bf consistent the Imprint should refuse to assist an army that i! participating in the preparations for world war and itself ha! participated in aggression against such countries as Korea. Refusing ads from the Canadian Armed Forces will‘not stoI their recruiting on campuses, but it will show that the Imprin opposes all armies which act against freedom, sovereignty am peace and it will assist in mobilizing students against the aims o the Canadian Armed Forces.

The Quality of Education Maintenance Fund committee was to be just another such unreachable government. Thecommittee was to take fifty dollars from each eligible engineering student and to allot the money to various engineering projects as they saw fit. The common student (the majority) had no say as to where his money was spent; there existed no democracy. The QEMF formal draft prepared by the then Eng Sot president stated that the members of the QEMF committee were to beselected by Eng Sot. If there were many that had aspirations to sit on the QEMF committee, then the committee would be almost impervious to them; Eng Sot may even have patronized friends (let’s hope not, though). Those that were not willing to invest their time on a QEMF committee, which is reason enough, were to resign themselves to having zero domination over their own fifty dollars (indeed, the QEMF proposal never did require equal representation, nor did it require the committee members to reflect their “constituents” views as opposed to their own private views).

It has been estimated that engineering students only pay 16% of the university’s expenditures foroureducation. If-it is true that the Faculty of Engineering lacks funds for worthwhile equipment and projects, then for us to pay a little more is not unreasonable. The writer proposes the following funding arrangement. AFTER approval of the Faculty of Engineering’s annual budget, both Eng Sots should evaluate whether financial assistance should be extended to the faculty for that fiscal year. Students should each contribute their fifty dollars under the same exemption rules as with QEMF (they were fair)except that exempted students need not pay their donation at registration (maximum number of accumulated donations per student - 7). The departments should submit to the students proposals of programmes they would like funded, stating purpose and desired dollar amount. Each desired amount becomes the ceiling for its project’s account. Contributing engineering students should have one month to analyze the proposals. The students should

Therefore, only a select few are making the decisions about Canada’s future; theconstituentsarevirtuallyexcluded from this process. These bureaucrats often make decisions (especially these days) that are unwanted by the populace they govern. They fling our money around to various programmes and groups as they please, under the false pretence that the government knows best to do with our hard-earned money. The people of Canada and of other democratic countries are skeptical of a bureaucracy over which they exercise so little control.

decide to which project accounts their fifty dollars are to go, and assign their money in the proportions they please (democracy). Once the ceiling is reached, studenti yet to assign their money should be notified the account is full (a short real-time computer programme can easily perform all the bookkeeping functions required), but should still be able to contribute to that account. Unassigned money should be appropriated according to the assigned money proportions (extrapolated democracy) until account ceilings are reached. There should be a formal ceremony, open to the public (especially the contributors), at which the students’ representatives hand over the money to the heads of all the programmes assisted. Conditions of financial assistance: a) money handed over in cash or draft so that no amounts enter university finance sheets b) the programme heads agree to spend money as per their proposals (within reason) c) at the<end ofthe term the programme heads furnish to Eng Sot and all students a listing of how their money was spent, detailing equipment bought and serial numbers, as well as a listing of their university funded expenditures. The idea of this action is to help our Faculty of Engineering when in a tight financial squeeze, but to do so in a way that caters to the students’ interests (it’s our money!). May we call this the Engineering Faculty Assistance Program (EFAP)?

Ideas for Improving

Education

The above proposal contains no guarantee of improving Waterloo’s engineering education. Below are ideas which may be considered for action towards actually improving education. 1) Restrict projects in above proposal to those that upgrade undergraduate laboratories or classrooms (including building costs and equipment). 2) Halve class sizes. Fifty or so people per class is plenty. This can be accomplished two ways: a) hire double as many teaching professors (that are interested in teaching), b) have simultaneous instruction of two half classes by the professor and a (good) teaching assistant, alternating the professor and the teaching assistant every class period. 3) Construct a building containing short wide classrooms without lighting nor acoustical problems; use the Engineering Lecture Hall only for tutorials. 4) Assign pointed homework assignments that gradually develop understanding of material, as opposed to requiring complete understanding before questions can be started. 5) Change tutorials to workshops (of longer duration, maybe one per afternoon or evening) with timeand atmospherefbr doing useful questions, and a teaching assistant to help individuals overcome difficult points (like Gen E 114).

The control over their choice of what should and shouldn’t be played even to the point of firing staff who don’t agree 100% with “the management’s” thinking should be seriously considered or even reconsidered by all. Let’s face it you’ve only heard the hitchers not everyone else who are enjoying themselves. Inovation can lead to change and keeping away from stagnation.

That roving din of noise you may have heard yesterda! afternoon was merely the Plummer’s Hard Hat Band trying tc make the campus aware that the engineers are still alive ant well and ready to begin an action packed weekend of fut activities. Twice every term the Engineering Society (Eng Sot sponsors Engineering Weekends in which the engineerin classes compete against each other inevents which rangefron the trivial Leonardo da Vinci Memorial Paper Airplanr Contest, to major activities such as the Super Bowl Sunda! “Sno Bowl Football Tournamknt”. The noon hour parade kicked this weekend off, and wa! followed yesterday by the Paper Airplane Contest and 2 Pinball Tournament. The Carolyne Mas pub at the Waterlo< Motor Inn last night capped the first day of activities. This afternoon’s Dog Sled Race and Snow Sculpture Contest fell victims of the mild weather, but a Rubik’s Cube Contest and the infamous muddy Tug of War at 2 p.m. todal (Friday) across the tracks from the Security building will keeF the class rivalries brewing; while night skiing at Chicopee wil provide a good excuse for getting together over a few brecl tonight. Tomorrow, the engineers will test their driving skills in a “Pub Rally” in which teams of two will muddle through complex integrals and matrices to obtain directions to the next check stop. The seven check stops are all local pubs, ana the navigator must consume two beers at each location while his card is punched. Some survivors of this rally will compete in the day long Sno bowl Football Tournament this Sunday Eng Sot of course, along with Carling O’Keefe, will suppl~ prizes to winners, and distribute coveted P**5 points (Pau Plummer Participation Points Program) to all competitors. Rival classes compete in various activities throughout the term in attempts to amass the most P**5 points for more prizes. Eng Sot welcomes all non-plummers to view the activities and see how engineers “let loose” from time to time, ln other engineering activities, the Femme Eng Wine ant Cheese party was held on Monday to welcome back the remale engineers. The recent increase in the number of women taking engineering has made this. i;vent many times larger than the first Femme Eng social event, almost a decade ago. The pre-season engineering floor hockey tournament Featured twelve teams and some of the stiffest competition ;een in many years in this sport, considered the official :ngineering pastime. The eventual winners of this :ournament, held two weeks ago, were the “Mechanical 4dvantage”, a 4B Mech Eng team who beat “Physical Systems” 1-O in the second sudden death overtime period. Upcomingeventsco-sponsored by Eng Sot, Math Soc,and Sci Sot include a roadtrip to “The Library” in Niagara Falls V.Y. on February 4th, Engineering Weekend II from March 3rd to 6th. The Bus Push for Big Sisters on March 19th, ‘ollowed that evening by the semi-formal, and the Beer Brewing Pub on March 30th. Details on how to enter the :ampus wide beer brewing contest can be obtained from the Eng Sot office in Carl Pollock Hall. The Waterloo Warriors will be engaged in a nationally elevised basketball game against the tough Windsor Lancers In Saturday, February 5th at 2 p.m. in the PAC.

The farther you can go th,e better, but since Hawaii and even Florida are often beyond the student budget, Toronto the Good will have to do. We will, in the following article, outline an active, diversified weekend from start to finish - transportation, shows, clubs, restaurants, and accommodation included. The weekend is geared for people with a meagre budget, so if you’re searching for first hand reviews of Fenton’s Napoleon, the National Opera, Studio 54, or Dexterity, you might look elsewhere. The first order of business is transportation: the second is accommodat’ n. Both of these subjects are set off in boxes on this page, along ith the corresponding costs. When y arrive in Toronto,dropyourthingsoff, whether it beata friend’s, % hotel, or a park bench. Since night-life is one of Toronto’s strongest points, a problem arises when one has to choose what to do and when to do it. We suggest you pick up a Star or Globe, and roughly plan our your weekend. We’ll proceed through this article as we arranged our weekend, but the order can be rearranged as it suits you.

Films The advantage of seeing films in Toronto is that you can see the ones that will likely not be shown in Kitchener/Waterloo. You can also see movies at revue theatres for much lower prices ($2-$3) than regularfilms. Wesplit upforthesereviewssincewewantedto cover as many films in as wide a variety as we could.

Come Back to the 5 & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean starring Sandy Dennis, Cher, Karen Black, and a supportingcastoffour isan intere/sting adaptation of a Broadway play that ran last spring. A summary of the plot is almost impossible since it would reveal too much of the film. However, in a nutshell ComeBack to the 5 &Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean is the story of six characters who meet again at a twenty year reunion of the James Dean fan club. The setting is an old Woolworth’s store located in a town where James Dean once filmed a movie. The crux of this film is a series of revelations about the lives, the secrets, and the sleazy delusions of the characters. The most controversial of these is the character played by Sandy Dennis, who claims that she has mothered the only child of James Dean. The performances of the three actresses are superb and perhaps provide the most solid reason for seeing the film. Karen Black, Sandy Dennis, and Cher create well-rounded characters that both contrast and compliment each other. The photography, which overlaps scenes of the store in the 50’s with that of the 70’s, is a photographer’sdelight. Since the setting never moves from the 5 & Dime, there are many shots (compliments of cinematographer, Pierre Mignot) reflected from mirrors, through doors, walls, etc. Unfortunately, in the beginning, a great deal of this is confusing. Also, with a stationary set such as this, stage business runs rampant. However, the film is unusual and well-acted, and also confirms Robert Altman’s prowess in the field of direction.

It takes place in Los Angelesand centresaround a couple who needtoraiseenough cash to finance the restaurant they want to open. L.

Released after his untimely death, this film is one of Fassbinder’s masterpieces. It is more accessible than many of his earlier pieces, and the cinematography is stark and stunning. (German with English subtitles). If the films that we have suggested so far do not appeal to you, then there is a sure-fire recommendation we can make. We know this because all the other bigwig reviewers loved it - and they are never wrong. Tootsie is being heralded byaImosteveryone(oneguy in San Francisco panned it) as the hit of the year. The praise is justified. Dustin Hoffman is sensational, the film is hilarious, Bill Murray is outstanding, and Sidney Pollack directs and acts charmingly.

Clubs The real night-life in Toronto is just beginning as the theatres empty.Therearenumerousdanceclubsaroundthecity,alIofwhich have their own unique personality. The Domino Klub, one block off Yonge Street on Isabella, offers mostly electronic music with funk, punk, rockabilly, and new wave played danceably loud for only $2 cover charge. In addition to the atmosphere created by all-black walls, very dim lighting, and mirrors behind the dance floor, there is steel dance floor. Do not wear a connoisseur’s dream - a stainless your running shoes; you’ll stick. Wear leather shoes. The clientele here is diverse; it shows a cross section of both Toronto culture and counter-culture. New-wavers, punks, mods, and skinheads all congregate here during the week, but on weekends everyone will feel comfortable. There is plentyofseating within easy access of the dance floor, so you do not have to be a gymnast to reach it when the urge grabs you. The mainattractionof the Domino Klub is that anything goes, from voyeurism to slam dancing. Nuts and Bolts, 277 Victoria Street, in comparison to the Domino Klub is middle-of-the-road, but perhaps less overwhelming. There is a narrower selection of music and the crowd is basically new wave. The dance floor was tacky, both from spilt beers and lights shining from underneath plexiglass. It is Iargeandalwayscrowded; with television screens and pool tables, it is more like a bar than a dance club. There is a $3 cover charge and there is dancing until 4 a.m.

Desserts at Greenjeans are huge and got a very favourable reception at our table. We sampled the following (no details needed): Here Comes the Fudge, cheesecake and the Karo pecan pie ($2.75 - $3.95). We were then wheeled out of the restaurant, and deposited in the street. Overall, the atmosphere is trendy, the drinks are imaginative, the food portions huge and the prices are reasonable. Locations of Greenjeans are 120 Adelaide St. E., and The Eaton Centre. If you are not ready for home yet, you can search out a quiet piano bar or a howling den of inebriation. Some bars and pubs of the more sedate type are ScotlandYard, 56The Esplanade, The Sticky Wicket, on Spadina, and Ryan’s at St. Clair and Yonge. As for the rowdy pubs, try the El Mocambo, 464 Spadina Ave., The lquana Lounge, 138 Pears Ave. (north of Davenport at Avenue Rd.) with dancing until three a.m., The Hotel Isabella, 556 Sherbourne, and The Turning Point, at 192 Bloor St. W.

The Second City improvisational dinner/theatre has been a popular hotspot in Toronto since the whole dinner/theatre craze began Now, due to SCTV’s popularity Second City’s attractiveness has grown to new proportions. It has become the springboard for young, talented performers to make it big in the “biz”, for example Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis, and John Candy. Also, celebrities such as Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, and Robin Williams have been known to show upunexpectedly, much tothedelightofeageraudiences.TheresuIt of all this exposure has been to inspire newer and more sophisticated shows.

The cast of John Hemphill, Ron James, Don Lake (you’ll recognize him from his Canadian Tire commercials), Bruce Pirrie, Kathy Laskey, and Debra McGrath are a charismatic group of performers that move from five-minute group scenes to five-second one-on-one skits with lightning wit and polished grace. The humour, primarily Canadian-oriented, satirizes institutions such asthe HydroCo., Bell Telephone, Consumer’s Gas, Brewer’s Retail, and of course, the economy. The whole atmosphere of Second City is that of energy, which is contagious to the somewhat rowdy (totally inebriated) audience. During the show, Second City offers a unique variety of “lmbibies” (their word), to increase your enjoyment and lighten your wallet weight. Here are a few: The SCTV Tube ($3.15), Catatonic (52.95), and the Foolish Fireman ($6.15) which consists of rum, more rum, raspberry, more rum, cherry brandy, and allows you to keeptheglass,ifyoucanstillrememberwhataglassis.T~;,t! is also beer ($1.75), wine ($6.00 per half litre) and shots, &!.50).

Wind-up

Sunday, as a wind-up to our weekend we decided to catch some live theatre (as opposed to dead theatre -there is such athing, you know). The Yellow House at Ar/es,pIaying at the Tarragon Theatre until February 5th, isa two-manplaywhichwaswritten byandstars Dennis Hayes and Richard Payne. The play revolves around the relationship between Vincent Van Gogh (Payne)and Paul Gauguin (Hayes) while they lived together at Arles in 1888. Although the first act is slightly uneven and the acting inconsistent, the second act thoroughly compensates for it. During thelastfewscenesoftheplaytheaudienceiswitnesstotheintense dedication and physical, emotional, and financial hardships faced by these two artists. A sense of extra-ordinary waste and sadness washes over the viewer as a result of these tensely structured last scenes. The director, Frank Canino makes interesting use of the stage through the use of the two artists paintings, as well there is a charming scene in which Van Gogh and Gauguin parody the styles of the other painters of their time. For exciting theatre as well as a good introduction to the lives of Van Gogh and Gaugin see The Yellow House at/b/es. The Tarragon Theatre, 30 Bridgeman Ave., Sunday, “pay as you can” performance. A weekend in Toronto is exhausting, but nevertheless satisfying. As we have shown, you do not have to spend a fortune to have a good time. With a good pair of walking and dancing shoes and alot of energyyouwillfindthattheweekendisnotlongenoughbeforeyour inevitable return to “The Waste Land”. . Stay tuned for the February trave! installment - Madagascar on $8.00 a day.

Although we did not have time to visit the restaurant upstairs, Second City offers a dinner/theatre package for as low as $17.95 from Mon. - Thurs., $18.95 on Friday and Saturday. Without dinner, theshowis $8.50, and reservationscan be made by phone. It is advisable to arrive well before the show since seating is unreserved and those with dinner reservationsgetfirstchoice. One more note of interest, from Monday to Thursdaythe SecondCity Co. does straight improv (i.e. suggestions from the audience) after 10 p.m. for free. The Old Firehall, 1 10 Lombard St. After Second City and no small amount of alcohol we stumbled out into the night in search of warmth, food, and, sadly, more alcohol. What could be more convenient than an eatery that lies directly across the street? Greenjeans is a trendy spot for the 18-28 year old set that offers lots of cutsie for reasonable prices. The front ofthe building is a store that is stocked with all kinds of fun stuff tee shirts, postcards and knick-knacks. Behind this mess is a pine and greenery filled restaurant and bar. The drinks menu is much like the atmosphere -sweetandfluffy. Cocktails, like the Chocolate Monkey with chocolate and banana liqueur, thick chocolate syrup, and fresh bananas blended together with banana and chocolate chip garnish, or the Red Rocket with rum, amaretto, real strawberries and heavy cream garnished with fresh strawberries and toasted almonds are tasty confections for $2.95. However, the selection of “Sunshine” wines isn’t worth repeating. The Chablis we tried would have cut axle-grease, so the best bet is draught at s3.50for a 30 oz. tankard. The Greenjeans theme is carried over to the graphics on the menu, and gets rather distracting as you try to find the food selections among the art. We had one dining companion who generously agreed to communal meals, so-we had the benefit of three full meals. For openers, we triedtwosoupsandonesalad. The

Sell out crowds

Nylons run true.to form d

by Terry Bolton Imprint staff The Nylons’ performance last Saturday night at the Humanities Theatre was virtually faultless. It is impossible to write a negative review. Not one person in the sold out crowd would have wanted to be elsewhere. This was the sixth time I had seen The Nylons, so I was trying to see if I could find any fault with their performance. The only element which was not quite perfect was the lighting. It just did not feel right. Sometimes they seemed to be in shadows when they should have been in the light, and every now and then the lighting changes were a little off-cue. However these occurrences were so minor that the majority of theaudiencedid not notice them. The show opened with The Nylons wearing white jackets, black pants, and silver ties, appearing out of nowhere as the stage lights were turned up. The crowd cheered as they launched into the autobiographical Me andtheZ3oys. Asalways, the microphones were each covered with a silk nylon. Since there are no instruments used during the performance (with theexceptionofsomepercussion),itisimportant thateach voice be properly heard. This means that if one of the mikes stops functioning, one quarter of the sound is lost. On Saturday they were able to recover quite quickly when Claude Morrison’s mike did not function. Given a working mike to finish his solo, Marc Conners and Paul cooper shared one of the others. The effect was reminiscent of Paul McCartney and George Harrison sharing a microphone back in the early days of the Beatles. Connors, Cooper, and Morrison are all original members of The Nylons, and have been together since 1979. Arnold Robinson is the newest member who joined the group back in March of 1981. Since that time they have toured North America and parts of Europe. Both of their records went gold within a couple of months of their release (One Size Fits All has just gone gold. They started off their singing career by singing all the songs which were popular when they were in highschool. With Songs such as One Fine Day, Runaway, Love Potion No. 9, Jailhouse Rock, and Duke of Earl. Slowly they started writing their own material and incorpdrated it into their act. It was accepted immediately. When they were in England they performed at Royal Albert Hall. They decided to do a song made popular by four guys from Liverpool. The song they chose to be the first Beatles’song they ever performed was This Boy. It was also the second song they did last Saturday night. After initially appearing slightly nervous, they quickly started to ignite the crowd before them. By the time This Boy was finished they had ihe crowd in the palm of their hands (which is just where the crowd wanted to be). Between songs they clowned around on stage. The patter they had was so smooth you would think it was totally ad-libbed. It was not, though, since they have done some of the jokes every time (in one form or another) wherever I’ve seen them perform. One of their (and the audience’s) favourites is to joke back and forth with Arnold (Arnold comments on how tough it is working with an all-white backup group, crowd laughs). These comical acts are incorporated into their songs as well. Instead of just singing each song, they act them out as well. This stems from the theatrical experience each of them had before joining the Nylons. By combining this acting with their superb vocal harmonies, the need for any instrumental accompanimerit is totally absent. This mixture worked wonderfully as they delighted everyone with a version of the old Diamond’s hit Little Darling.

Their latest single, Silhouettes, received a big round of applause as soon as the first notes were sung. Thankfully they included the talking part in the middle of the song, which is noticeably missing from the album version. They finished off the first half of the show with songs that everyone recognized from their albums. Songs such as Bop Til Ya Drop, So In Loue, Find The One I Love and That Kind of Man. Rock And Roll Lullaby was another favorite that was introduced like this: “If you happen to recognize the words and feel like joining in, by all means . . . DON’T!” For the second set, each member was wearing a baggy pink suit straight out of the fifties. The audience loved it. After singing Romance, Totvn Without Pity, Drop The Big One (a song dedicated to Nancy and Ronald Reagan which ended with an explosion on stage) and Something ‘Bout Cha, they turned up the house lights and did something they had not done a year ago. They pretended it was the CarolBurnett Show, and had the audience ask questions. They asked: what Arnold’s lowest and Claude’s highest notes were; where they got the pink suits; if they called themselves the Nylons because they were a bunch of hosers; and what was the stupidest question (besides this one) that they have been asked. Their reply was, “A guy in Calgary asked us if we ate quiche. We replied, ‘You’re asking a guy in a pink suit if he eats quiche?’ ” Of the last four songs they sang, three of them they wrote themselves. Heavenly Bodies uses Beach Boys-type harmonies; Please is a song they have just written about breaking up without harsh words and tears; and Prince ofDarkness expresses their belief that there is still hope for the world. This song was visually significant, as they were illuminated by red spot lights and buried up to their knees in fog. Quite effective - it was the visual highlight of the show. To finish off the set, a green jungle background was projected behind them. Everyone knew TheLionSleeps Tonightwasnext. A standing ovation began as the song started to die away. It continued until they came back for an encore set. In the past, The Nylons only performed one song as an encore; this time they did two. The first was a song written by Bruce Springsteen and made famous by the Pointer Sisters, Fire. They used to perform this song when they first started out (before Robinson joined them) as part of their regular set. It is interesting that they have started to include it again. Before starting the second encore, they asked the audience what they wanted to hear. Somewhere near the back the chant began: “Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke . . .” It got louder and louder until The Nylons themselves joined in. Everyone clapped and sang along. The audience was even asked to sing the “Duke’ part by themselves. It was while the whole crowd was having such a good time singing and dancing that The Nylons started tc slip off stage. As soon as they were gone, the house lights came on to signal the end had arrived. They had to get everyone out SC that the second sold out crowd could get in. By the response that The Nylons received during the firs show, I bet that they will be back again. The small and intimatt atmosphere of the Humanities Theatre helps to make the show i success. It is important to be fairly close to catch all the slight ant suggestive moves that are made. This is why they will no perform in some place like Maple Leaf Gardens, but do like the closeness they find at the’ontario Place Forum. For a group that started off with a small following back in 1979 they are turning into one of Canada’s hottest acts. If you get ( chance to go and see them, do so!

by Chris Bauman Imprint staff Toronto Dance Theatre sprang onto UW’s Humanities stage last night’ with more poise and artistry than this modern dance company has shown in recent years. The works were generally strong choreographically and the dancing was solid. David Earle’s Baroque Suite opened the evening with controlled lightness and long and curving body sculptures. The grace and dignity of an afternoon in the parlour with Bach was reflected in couples’ loving looks and symmetrical movement. The music changed and grew more intricate; although the steps became simpler, the dancers multipligd in numbers, moved in canon, and dipped and pranced in four directions at once to produce woven movement toecho the music. Complete repose would then break the swirling only to go again. Although jostled positions and laboured lifts distracted at first, the dancers soon warmed to their task, finishing with an arm up, out and c giving - - to the audience. Against Sleep contrasted the warmth of Baroque Suite with two stark disks seeming to hover above the ground. The upper one held a male creature, monkey-agile, who was soon on the ground, windmilling his arms through molasses. He looked human but his movements were alien. A woman creature in the lower disk then eased herself out and into fast, fluid motion. She swung a leg high, caught it, and

d

released it. She would do a sequence and repeat it precise15 again, like a machine. The two came together in conflict using a long red cloth’as catalyst to comfort and pain, as a dress, a stretching sculpture and a noose. The line, the flow,and over-rich redness of the clot’ meshed into chilling images of love and de&h. Enter the Dawn was grim also. Alone woman paced in a steril room slowly, then hit sharp, carving movement& The control c a rising leg cracked as the leg broke and curled. The containmer was beautiful as itself but the movement wasawkward. It implie strange passion but the dancer seemed dispassionate. Pet6 Randazzo’s piece would have been more powerful if the “sou had been there. Neet by Christopher House should have been done t Randazzo. John Cage’s music was used and Randazzo has th; bizarre quirkiness to match Cage, one bit of craziness fc another. House did not use Cage except as background noisl His movement was too conventional, flowing, and logical for tlsemi-rhythmic, “let’s-perceive-music/dance-up-side-dowr Cage. Consequently, the music pulled attention away from tf dance. Only when House’s dancers stood still did music ar dance work. The dancers eyed another dancer as she move quietly among them, floating side lifts of the leg, serene opposing the clanging and pinging of the music. Legend, also by Earle, was a pleasant tale of an Indian bc discovering the rhythms bf forest creatures. It cfosed the fine evening performance this dance series has seen this year.

Choice

I)oes she haveany? by Suzanne Alexanian Imprint staff It’s curious to think of the atrocities of World War II as dead, but I cannot imagine waging war against the idea. Sophie’s Choice, Meryl Streep’s new movie, opened at Fairview Park Cinema on January 21s.t on this premise.

In a film about choices, there seems to be very little freedom of choice. Sophie has no choices. Her death is only an escape. She is lodged too deeply in the patterns of the war. In Nathan’s required revenge against the Nazi’s, n’o freedom of choice is ever implied. He could escape, like Sophie, but there would be no justice in it. I couldn’t help remaining cautious in accepting the arrival of the new world. I need only catch bits of current news to realize that many people today are loaded with the same choices as Sophie. And we in the “new world” are simply driven to mad paranoia by the very threat. Alan J. Pakula, .the director of Sophie’s Choice, observes the death of the awareness of the atrocities of World War II directly following the war. I hope that the notion of war is alive enough in the Western World to keep its threat remote.

The three characters in this movie never appear believable. They are but a representation of certain remnants left by World War II. Sophie, and her lover Nathan, loom. as casualties doomed in a civilization which wants to sweep the World War II ashes away from the newly forming society. Stingo, their Southern friend, wears the guise of the new generation. He is interestedin the straight and narrow. Completely unaware of the events of the war, he can only pretend to understand the feelings and angers of Sophie and Nathan. ,

Bands by Larry May Last Thursday’s pub at the Waterloo Inn with Current Situation and Viva Libido got off to a slow start. It should have been packed. Current Situation is not the band it used to be. They are without their old lead vocalist and have tightened their sound incredibly. They delivered clean mainstream ska music to a determined, if somewhat mixed group of dancers who were up by the second song. The band mixed their material by an infusion of reggae that was really more slowed down ska in its style and delivery than “true” raggae. The bassist stood out for his intricate jazz-like riffs in the slow numbers, but his vocals (a4though in tune and time) fell flat$r their inappropriate delivery. The best example of this was a reggae song called Murder during which he just looked bored, hardly fitting for such loaded lyricism. On the whole though they played a good, well-mixed set,

at a loud but not deafening level, that had the floor filled and “skankin”. The set concluded with a rousing version of Woo/y Bully, a Marley tune made famous by the Villains. Viva Libido was of an entirely different genre. Their stage image could best be described as slick “Latin-American preppie” - short hair, short leather boots, and an Inca vest; these guys are very current. Their lead vocalist is Steve Blimkie, formerly with The Reason, and just as unintelligible as ever. His vocals still suffer from being too mannered; he has yet to learn Carol Pope’s lesson that overworked inf,lection becomes quickly annoying after the novelty wears off. Too much reverberation combined with Blimkie’s mannered delivery rendered the first two songs completely incoherent. However, this didn’t seem to bother the crowd, which overflowed the dance iloor for every song.

,

crowd The band’s sound is akin to that of Haircut 100, upbeat latin rhythms on lead guitar backed by a funky bass and powerful percussion drumming. The sax was smooth, leaning at times to a free-form jazz style and providing a counterpoint to the repetitive dance rhythms. Those rhythms had everybody dancing - in the current sway and snap style that’s so hard on the kidneys. Between the two bands, Current Situation was the more polished act with a consistent image and a clean, quiet sound mix but definitely dated. Viva Libido, while somewhat unsure of their stage image and with their sound suffering from the mixing, is definitely a band on the move. They have the talent to break out of the bars.

by Patricia L. Shore Arts editor The second film in the UW International Films Winter Mini Series 1983 was Music Lovers, a film from Great Britain directed by Ken Russell, the man who gave us The Devils, The Boyfriend, and Tommy. A short serial, The Perils of Pauline, Episode 8: Dangerous Depths, was also shown. The evening was well attended (approximately 75 people) a large number of whom were taking advantage of the student discount price of $1.50. The opening serial was a grand old thriller complete with sharks (yes, there were sharks before Jaws), a diabolical doctor, a beautiful heroine, a handsome hero, and of course, a noble quest. It was a great start to the evening and I’ll have to return next week to see what happens in Episode 9: The Mummy Walks. Rather too quickly, Music Lovers followed and the vertical distortion of the picture made it very difficult to watch. It was as if one was suddenly plunged into a rich, excessive surreal world and expected to react passively. The film demanded an active reaction however. From the whirling lights and festivities of the carnival, through Tchaikovsky’s homosexual relationship with the “Count”, to his consuming passion for his

music, and his non-existent passion for his wife, Russell directed his movie through time and dream sequences highlighted by colour, light, and darkness. Tchaikovsky’s life was made to suggest his music, and in turn, his music to suggest his life. The problems with the film (the vertical distortion, a number of skips and jumps, a complete black halt) made it difficult to tell if certain changes in scene and action were poor editing, another skip, or intentional. I would have preferred a movie in better shape. Russell’s work was not so allengaging that I could ignore these things. The complete audience silence through the final credits, coupled with the anxiety when the film stopped just prior to the end, spoke of Russell’s success with Music Lovers. The beauty, the ugliness, the excess, and the obvious symbols came together in such a way that the distortion of the opening reel seemed intentional. I.know that I will never again be able to lis’ten to the music of Tchaikovsky without, in some manner, remembering this film. There are still four films left in the Winter Mini Series. This Monday night entertainment is a bargain at student prices. And where else would you get to see the continuing adventures of The Perils of Pauline?

Those who have heard Neil ung’s Trans can attest that the full-blown thesized sound (not to mention computerj vocal tracks on all but three of the album’s 2 songs) is a little disconcerting, but not irely surprising ‘oung has been so long established that he s no obligation to fit the hindering molds of nmercial success, and by this route has aped the monotonous pastures where ?y of his early contemporaries now graze. ‘hrough seventeen solo efforts to date and ide range of styles, the thirty-eight year old lstrel has maintained an individual standard musical ingenuity and lyrical quality that has ie most of his work appreciable and )ugh occasionally a little unnerving, Last rice, Tonight’s the Night, Mashed atoes - to mention a few) - always erving of a second listen. Trans may take -e than a second hearing to get used to, but most of Young’s work, it’s well worth it. he album opens with Little Thing Called e, a straight forward Zuma-rocker. Then zr- the machines. Computer Age, We’re In jtrol, and Transformer Man, are about lans in the face of technological revoln. omputer Age - In Harm’s Way has an ic droning to the punching synthetic-disco ., and doesn’t lack the sense of urgency is charac,teristic of Young’s vision. omputer Cotuboy, a hard-driving funked-

up tale, is about a very ‘modern’ and heroic wrangler who feeds his cattle by floodlight, then heads into town to “bringanother system down”. Six passwords on each hip? This is some cowboy. Sample and Hold, possibly the album’s strongest tune, is about a computerized dating agency that provides mates (“Fabricated from the curl of the hair/To the tip of the nail”), but the recipient is a little disillusioned (“I need a unit to sample and hold/but not the lonely one”). Those familiar guitar chops are enhanced by a Pat-Manesque voice, and here the experiment with the hardware really works. Human League wili dig the ‘dance version’of Mr. Soul; I’m just thankful the guitar track was salvaged. And at last, the bongos and Nils Lofgren’s workout give a welcome, real-time sound to Like An Inca. Young peels the techno-mask to get serious, and in that familiar whine croons, “I feel sad but I feel happy/as I’m coming back to home/There’s a bridge across the river/that I have to cross alone.” It’s a positive note after a chilling journey through the heavy metal mainframe. The cover of Trans is a drawing of Young (bongosat his side), hitchhiking on a forestedged road, a flock of geese overhead and a late ‘57 model car zooming past. On the opposite side of the road is a graphic representation of a human form hitchhiking among futuristic architecture, (Concorde jet overhead), and is being picked up by a 21st century sedan. The tone is obvious and the “surviving Uncle Granola’s” true to form, humanistic outlook is a rare pleasure. I look forward to the February 18th stopover in Toronto of the Trans-World tour.

WLU and McMaster :d for first place in the event. To determine who qualifies for playoff tion, the OUAA West conveners have Id thr.ee tournaments in the fall and nter. Each team ranks their four best igles players No. 1, No. 2, and so on. ayers play only those competitions in eir rank, usually in a round-robin rmat. The same set-up is used for ubles play; then singles and doubles ints are added together to show which ims advance. In action on Saturday, WLU’sfirst seed brn Hunter claimed the day’s singles le, followed closely by U W’s Jeff GoldsIi-thy. Things were different in the ubles action on Sunday, where Golds)rthy and teammate Mehdoob Nanji ished in first, beating out Hunter and tve Drummond. Although Waterloo as a team only reed third in the event, they qualify cause the points from all three meets are ded together. Going into the semi-finals d finals to be held at Royal Military ,Ilege on February 12th and 13th, urier is ranked No. 1 in the OUAA :st, followed by Waterloo.

for OUAA playoffs interest dwindled, causing the cancellation of women’s varsity badminton three years ago. McCrae also coaches the Athena curling and field hockey teams. The No. 1 seed for Waterloo is Jeff Goldsworthy. He has been a member of the National team, and was thelast person cut from the team that went to Melbourne for the Commonwealth games last year. Jeff is usually ranked between 5th and 8th out of all the players in Canada. Goldsworthy’s doubles partner, and the No. 2 Waterloo seed is Mahdoob Nanji. This is his third year in competitive university play. McCrae labels Nanji as the most improved player on the team. “He has more now than just a smash and rally game,” she commented. “Nanji is a hard worker who has the desire to be a better player.” Kent James and John Molson are the third and fourth seeds respectively for Waterloo. These four are the nucleus of the team which McCrae says is “one ofthe winningest teams that I’ve been associated with in five years,” which is saying a lot. Four years ago, the badminton Warriors won the OUAA Championship. They have been in the finals three out of the past five years, and have been con-

sistently in first or second place in the OUAA West during that time. Enzo Mancusco is the fifth-ranked player, and would fill in if any of the top four were injured. Waterloo has beenvery fortunate in regards to injuries. Judy McCrae noted that “Jeff had some minor injuries before Christmas, but we’ve been real healthy.” Waterloo willprobablyplay Yorkinthe semifinals. The Yeomen are led by Dave deBelle, a current National team player, who will keep Goldsworthy on his toes throughout their match. McCrae feels her club may be able to upset the Yeomen. “York’s a strong team. We’ve got a fight on our hands. I feel very confident about our doubles play, though. If we beat York. then we’ve got a chance.” Although they are not as well-knownas other Waterloo teams, the badminton Warriors work as hard as the rest of the PAC residents. They spend two or,three nights a week in the gym as well as individual workouts. Can the badminton team add another OUAA trophy to UW’s collection in two weeks? Maybe. If they don’t, they will still be able to hold their heads high, as they have represented their school very well on and off the court this year.

The entire Waterloo squad knew that Toronto had strength and depth, but that did not scare the Warriors. Everyone swam the best they could; some of the results were surprising.

At the Waterloo Invitational last weekend, 14 Athenas led Waterloo to victory in a record-breaking swim meet. Waterloo narrowly beat McMaster by 15 points and managed to easily overcome third-place Toronto Blues, last year’s CIAU hampions, by over 150 points. Waterloo showed tremendous depth by placing 38 swimmers n Final and Consolation Final events. The lone Athena diver lso made a superb effort as she placed 5th and 6th in the 3 metre nd 1 metre events. Outstanding performances were turned in by Kelly Neuber (50 ree - silver, 200 back - gold, 400 free - silver, 100 back -ilver), Sue Funnel1 (100 fly - silver, 200 fly - silver), Lynn /Marshall ( 100 free -gold, 200 free - gold, 400 free - gold, 800 -ee - gold), Barb O’Neill(100 fly - gold, 200 fly - gold), Sue ‘urner (400 I.

Waterloo’s performance at this meet (even lacking three of reir strongest swimmers - Kate Moore, Karrie DeHay, and bebbie Dunn) shows that this team will pose a real threat at the 1.W.I.A.A. Championships in Toronto in three weeks. The thenas have already qualified six swimmers for the C.I.A.U.‘s Lis year in Sherbrooke, Quebec with five more girls within conds of qualifying in their events.

Waterloo dominates squash tournament by Barnmawrence University of Waterloo champion Al Hunt led the Warriors to an impressive victory in a field of seven competing university teams at the McMaster courts last Saturday. Playing in the No. 1 position for Waterloo, Al Hunt defeated the Guelph No. 1 player (highly ranked N,orm White) 3-Oin thesemi-finals, and then took the measure of Wilfrid Laurier champion Todd Schaefer in the finals without the loss of a single game. In the first round, Warriors blanked Guelph 6-Oand were fresh for a tough semi-finals against their old rivals, Queen’s, which they won 5- 1 (the only Queen’s victory going to Charlie Cleghorn who out shot Waterloo’s John O’Callahan in a close 3-2 match). Mike Costigan displayed his power by downing Queen’s No. 2 seed Clem Eggert 3-0, while Dick Meredith came back from a O-2 deficit to outlast Cunliffe, Queen’s No. 3, 3-2. Denis Rioux and Rob Bowder also won in the No. 4 and No. 6 spots respectively.

WLU gained the finals by defeating the Royal Military College (5- 1) and Brock (4-2) but were no match for the more experienced Warrior team going down 6-O in the match. Best for WLU were Geoff Biddell who won one game from Warrior’s No. 2 Mike Costigan, David Yim at No. 4, and Jaimie Allen at No. 5 who lost 3-l to Waterloo’s Denis Rioux and John O’Callahan. Al Hunt (No. I), Dick Meredith (No. 3), and Rob Bowder defeated their opponents by identical scores of 3-O. McMaster won the Consolation event over an improved Brock team (4-2). McMaster Coach Don Dawson presented the medals to the Warrior team and congratulated Waterloo Captain Mike Costigan and Al Hunt on their excellent showing.

and seemed unsure of where their fellow members were on the court. Husson suggests, “They lost their starting setter and he was a key force in holding the team together.” The Warriors also are feeling the temporary loss of their starting setter, Owen Jones, who has been out due to back and knee injuries. Fortunately, Jim Cooke is doing an impressive job, setting for his first time in a 5-l situation in the game against Laurier. “We made fewer errors in this match than in the game against Brock,” said Husson,

and he was pleased with the effective blocking and setting tactics of the Warriors. “The team adjusted well to what Laurier was doing.” Husson feels they still could play with more emotion and hype on the court but foresees an improvement in this area especially if the ever-growing number of fans shed their inhibitions and start ‘using the 01’ vocal chords. There is every indication that this team of talented athletes will continue to serve up exciting victories.

cleaned up, 15-3 and 15-9 respectively. Although some fans felt the team was not “playing their game”, coach Dave Husson has been giving all the players experience on centre court and feels that things are now “starting to iron out.” A certain degree of continuity was lacking but great potential was evident in each new rookie-veteran combination. Laurier seemed to have difficulty rallying its forces to return-the hard and consistent shots. They were somewhat disorganized and disoriented

For the second consecutive weekend the Nor‘die Ski Teams’ scheduled races were cancelled due to insufficient snow. Instead the team trained at Horseshoe Valley and the University of Guelph and the U W coaches organized a Time Trial involving the varsity teams and racers from the Cambridge Ski Club. The competition was very interesting despite the difficult waxing situation. In the men’s 10.5 km. race the top five finishers were within 18 seconds 01 each other. Warrior Kevin

Jones was the top university skier, placing 3rd. Three other top UW men were missing due to illness. The Athenas swept the first five placings in the women’s 7 km. event.

Ball Hockey The Men’s Competitive Ball Hockey league expanded to 37 teams this term, with seven A-League and 30 B-League teams. Games are played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Seagram’s Stadium. The A-League saw the return of many established teams, including the finalists of last term. One of the new teams, the Noecker Nuts, showed they are ready to take on the regulars as they won their first, with a 12-1 romp over the Green Machine. The game was a respectable 3- 1 in the first half but in the second half the floodgates opened up with just about everyone scoring. Other A-league action proved to be close as Trussed Erection edged by the Bearded Clams 4-2. The Bombers are back but only managed a tie with the Carpet Crawlers, 3-3. As mre&i&ed~B-League teamsare starting out of the blocks this year. One of the powerhouses of last term, S. D. Duckhunters are showing they haven’t gone soft over the Christmas holidays. Their 10-3 victory over W. E. Executioners was led by a six-goal performance by Rob Stevenson. In other league action Entropy defeated East A 5-3 and the Buds nipped the Norwangers-4-3. In the low scoring game of the week the Tuktuyaktuk Turtles managed a 3-2 victory over the Steers. ---

Four women.

four men: a nearly flawless performance

Ken Bell

of Kettentunz.

.rhe .Nation Ballet

.

at its best

by Patricia Michalewicz Imprint staff Ballet is a nearly perfect art form. Unlike music or the visual arts, ballet requires all the senses to be used when performed and when enjoyed. It has a grace and beauty which is not matched by any other dance form. Tuesday night’s Centre in the Square perfomrance of The National Ballet of Canada (almost) attained this state of perfection. The performance consisted of-several short ballets or excerpts from- assorted ballets. First on the list was Kettentanz, a suite of waltzes, galops, and polkas. Kettentanz begins and ends with a simple chain dance, thus giving the dance its name. It was first performed in 1974 and since then it has become the signature piece of the National Ballet. The highlights of this dance were performed by the female members of the company. In Shnofler Tanz, dancer Mary Jago had an almost impossible solo. She danced virtually the entire piece on her points (toes). Also displaying finesse and beautiful technique were Vanessa Harwood and Cynthia Lucas in the Cachucha Galop. The next dance on the programme wasMonotones II. Performed by only three dancers - David Nixon, Amalia Schelhorn, and Raymond Smith - it was a very serene and graceful piece. The dancers, dressed in white leotards with white caps, resembled three pierrot. The emphasis of the ballet is the flow of movement and adjustments in the position of the headand shouldersas the body changes position. Consequently, each section of the dance repeats, in somewhat altered form, themes set out in the first section. It was a very diffkult dance and the skill demonstrated by the dancers (and especially Schelhorn, who completed a series of seemingly impossible contortions) was superb. Curiously, the audience did not respond as well to this piece as to some of the others performed that evening. Perhaps this modem looking ballet, created by Frederick Ashton in 1965, was “far out” for a town which considers Ice Capades high art. The Dying Swan, Fokine’s classic which was created for the legendary Anna Pavlova, displayed the truly remarkable talent of Vanessa Harwood. As the Swan, she gave new life to the cliche “poetry in motion”. Her arms were absolutely fluid, effectively portraying the movements of a swan’s wings. Certainly this memorial

to Pavlova was one of the highlights of the evening’s performance. Song of a Wayfarer is a dramatic pas de deux created for another legend, Rudolf Nureyev. In this ballet, set to operatic music, a young man struggles with another figure (his double or his conscience) before finally reconciling. Once again the unique talents 07 Frank Augustyn and Thomas Schramek earned them the audience’s applause and admiration. The only sour note of the evening occurred in the Pas de Deux from Le Corsaire. In the earlier segments of the performance, music was either performed live or prerecorded. Nevertheless, the sound quality was excellent, except for LR Corsair-e. Whether it was the quality of the tape or the audio equipment at the Centre, the music was filled with static thereby detracting from the performances of Veronica Tennant and Kevin Pugh. There was some buzzing in the audience and, sensing this, the dancers were distracted. Their timing was off and Pugh nearly missed catching Tennant after a leap into the air. This was regrettable since Tennant is a superb dancer, often eclipsing Karen Kain in style and technique. The only thing that has prevented her from attaining the popularity of Kain is the inability to find a suitable and permanent dance partner. This often happens in the ballet when a female dancer’s height or other physical features make it awkward for her to dance constantly with any of the male principal dancers. Pugh is also a gifted dancer but this pas de deuxwas marred by the technical faults of the programme. Last were DanceS from Napoli, excerpts from the third act of Napoli. A number of “stars” danced in this piece including Karen Kain. Kain is considered to be the prima ballerina, however, both Harwood and Tennant are as good. Indeed Kain and Tennant alternate in their roles in this dance. Many segments of this ballet resemble Italian folk dance and this piece was a joyful and exuberant conclusion to an evening of very good dance. All in all, The National Ballet of Canada gave a wonderful performance worthy of its reputation as one of the foremost ballet companies of the world. The wide variety of dance performed on Tuesday night displayed every facet of the grace and beauty of ballet. Despite the technical flaws, it was a superb example of ballet at its best.
