Doubtless the inevitability of these changes for greater future prosperity and a better life is always implied by these corporations. BBC2’s The Right to Workemphasizes that leisure in the new community is something in whichall willget involved. New Technology: Whose Progress? presents an historical perspective by briefly tracing the massive post-World War II U.S. investment in scientific research. As always, military priorities made such investment worthwhile to the government,

Student

wants

by don button Imprint staff If Caroline Abrams has her way, there will be a Federation of Students presidential election next fall. Abrams objects to the conduct of Tom Allison, Federation of Students’ President, and feels that he has not lived up to the responsibilities of his position, and therefore wants to organize a recall. A recall referendum to remove the President from office requires a written petition signed by not less than ten percent of voting Fed members. Fulfilling this requirement requires the Federation of Students to hold a referendum among all voting Fed members within 20 days of receipt of the petition. If a majority of students voted for removing the President, his/her term of office would expire immediately, and a by-election would then be called. Abrams said that she is going to organize an ad hoc committee to initiate a recall of Tom Allison in early September. She explained that, “The recall is directed at Tom Allison because of his lack of willingness to communicate with student

UWprofs

since lightweight equipment for military systems was desired. Soon the business community recognized the economic gain to be made with microelectronics. Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, the British people were under a barrage of warnings about the dire consequences for companies that did not invest in word processing and other new techniques to remain competitive. “Technology” and “inevitable progress” have been so synonymous that a Xerox Corporation film for its employees comparesanyone whochallenges the new changes to a “Luddite” of pre-Victorian Britain. The management training film was made to forstall any possible staff “problems”. Juxtaposed with the Xerox film clip are comments of British journalists, trade unionists, and technologists who have had direct experience with present new

Fed president groups on campus, and take their comments and criticisms of his plans into account.” Abrams went on to stress that, “This is a personal initiative, and does not involve WPIRG. It was only through my’ involvement with them that I became aware of this situation. My actions reflect my personal opinion, and not necessarily those of the WPIRG staff or its Board of Directors.” Abrams is currently employed under a Federal government Summer Canada Grant to write a booklet for WPIRG on organic industrial solvents. When asked about their stance, Education Co-ordinator Doug MacKinlay explained that, “At this time, WPIRG is not involved, and is not taking a stand on the recall.” Once the Fall term starts, Abrams says that she will be looking at the recall more seriously. She said that she doesn’t feel that this is the time to do it because there aren’t as many students on campus. “I want to make the students aware of the conduct of Tom Allison; I want to make students aware that the democratic process of their student government has broken down; and I

non smokingpromam

A University of Waterloo professor has come up with a program which is remarkably effective in terms of getting smokers to quit. The professor is Dr. Ron Schlegel, whose research background is in social psychology and who teaches in the Department of Health Studies. He has shown t-he program is effective for up to 60 per cent of those who try it. This is a top success rate in comparison with other strategies that have been equally as carefully evaluated. For the past year, Dr. Schlegel has tested the program in a research project with the Department of National Defence (DND), Ottawa. Several hundred niem! bers of the Canadian armed forces participated, approximately 10 per station in 40 armed forces stations coast-to-coast in Canada and overseas. “The project appealed to the armed forces because senior officers are aware of the hidden costs involved in smoking,” says Dr. Schlegel. “Smoking is also detrimental to the fitness levels of armed forces personnel, should they be needed as part of a peace-keeping expedition or for some other purpose. Fitness can be a matter of life and death for some of them, under certain circumstances.” Dr. Schlegel cites data collected in the United States two years ago showing employees who smoke cost their employers more than $4,500 a year each, on average, as compared with non-smoking employees. These studies included estimates of the time lost as smoking employees lit up and’ extinguished cigarettes several times a day. They included an examination of absenteeism records which showed smoking employees miss more work than non-smoking employees. They even included estimates of the

detrimental effects of smokers on nonsmokers, through contamination of the air. “Not many employers realize just how expensive their smoking employees are, but the data are in and they are reliable,” Dr. Schlegel says. The Department of National Defense is aware of this fact, however, which is one of the reasons they asked Dr. Schlegel to research smoking cessation programs for them. In his research, Dr. Schlegel has compared several such programs. He found the one he has evolved is clearly tops. I ; I In the Schlegel program smokers take part in 17 group sessions. In these, they are encouraged to completely relearn behaviour patterns that go with the smoking habit. “If a smoker thinks back to the first time he or she took a cigarette,” Dr. Schltgel invariably it was unsays, “almost pleasant. No one really enjoys that first cigarette. So smoking is a learned behaviour. Gradually, as we get accustomed to tobacco, we get tolike it. We get certain kinds of positive reinforcement from using cigarettes in that the nicotine gets into our bloodstream and acts as a stimulate. “We go along year after year with this positive reinforcempnt - the stimulation - and smoking thus becomes quite a habit. Not many of us can just quit cold.” Dr. Schlegel’s program involvesgetting smokers to think back to that initial unpleasantness - the bad taste - before they learned to like smoking. It’s a matter of unlearning things that have been giving the smoker pleasure. (The smoker has, of course, paid quite a price for that pleasure in terms of the cost of cigarettes, the effect

revolution

by Ron Welker Social aspects of the technological revolution were explored when the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) presented the film New Technology: Whose Progress? last week at the Campus Centre, University of Waterloo, and at the Kitchener Public Library. WPlR G is a student-funded research and educational organization which constantly focuses on key issues such as our computer revolution. Although the 198 1 filmis British, the questions that it raisesare just as vital for Canadians. It must be emphasized that the film and WPIRG are not opposed to new technology per se, however, they do question the direction that the new technology is taking down an unstable path of demeaning work and us disemployment. Companies that manufacture and sell computer innovations present-them as the means by which to liberate-people to do more creative things. For example, an excerpt from a BBC2 programme presents a Centre for Human Achievement as an integral component of the new British metropolis in which everyone will be matched with their abilities.

tested on general health and even the risk of shortening his or her life considerably.) The Schlegel treatment teaches wouldbe quitters to deal with the urge to smoke even at moments when it is apt to be particularly overwhelming . . . for example, following a delicious dining experience when a cigarette would “really taste great” along with the coffee. “We -prepare them for those moments but we know too that sometimes, some of them are going to succumb to temptation. We try to make even that a learning experience,” he says. “We try to help smokers understand why they slipped up and how to avoid making that kind of a mistake next time.” The emphasis of the program is on the individual smoker doing it himself, or her self. Thus each individual tailors the program to his or her individualsituation. For some, the worst temptation to smoke comes after a good meal; for others, it may come when they wake up in the morning. Though the program was developed on the UW campus it was administered by armed forces personnel. These included armed forces nurses, personnel people and others concerned with fitness and health programs. They were thoroughly grounded in the Schlegel system by U W researchers, prior to undertaking it in the various armed forces bases. Dr. Schlegel hopes that some day the program can be licenced through the DND and made available to businesses, ’ industries and othergroups ofcanadians, or to other employers anywhere in the world in fact. In his view the fewer smokers there are, the better it will be for all of us.

innovations. Some aspects of the technological revolution are demystified and concrete explanations concerning the nature of current dislocations is offered. The future for many office and industrial workers now looks uncertain. Office managers intend to improve performance by implementing technological change. Perhaps one third of all clerical workers will be eliminated by word processors. Industrial robotization will have similareffectsfor workers in the manufacturing sector. The notion that workers will no longer have to do hard work and can thus devote more time to leisure is criticized. If work at present is the means to distribute the wage and to achieve some measure of dignity and personal worth, how are the disemployed at present and in the future to benefit from new leisure time when they have little money at their disposal? “Forced idleness”aptly describes those who have lost their jobs due to new technology. The film offers no easy solutions to the Gargantuan problem which raises. However, it does point out that since technology is made for human beings we have a right to design it differently if it is not doing what we want it to do. The means for a coherent strategy are not so much technological as they are political and ideological. New Technology: Whose Progress? was the last featured WPIRG presentation for the summer; a series that has been well attended, and has raised some serious questions about various current social issues. WPIRG will be sponsoring similar presentations in both the Fall and Winter terms. Admission is free, discussion is welcome, and more information on scheduled events is available from the WPIRG office in the Campus Centre.

recalledwant to make Tom Allison aware that he can’t do whatever he wants to do regardless of the wishes of students and their groups on campus,” Abrams explained. She went on to say that she had objections to Allison’sconduct with regards to Federation Hall, the Federation’s decision making process, and space re-allocation within the campus centre. There is a shortage of space in the Campus Centre for Fed and Campus Centre services, and numerous proposals for alleviating these problems have surfaced over the last four and a half months. A decision to move around certain groups was made by Allison last week, and ratified by the Federation’s Board of Directors Monday night, but Abrams criticizes Allison’s dealings with the concerned groups. She also feels that the proposed new Federation Hall does not satisfy the needs of students. “I feel that if a new buildingisgoing to be built, it should include office space because there is a critical shortage on campus, and I feel that he is missing an opportunity, and by missing that opportunity to respond to the needs of the students, he is not living up to his mandate.” Of the Federation’s decision making process, Abrams says, “I am not convinced that the decision making process, involving the President, the Board of Directors, and student council, is functioning as a democratic process, and that will be one area that the ad hoc- committee looks into in the fall.” Abrams said that she understands that a recall is a drastic measure, but explained that, “It’s like banging your head against the wall. He just doesn’t listen. And if someone doesn’t listen, he needs to be replaced. It is a drastic move, but I think in this case it is warranted.” In response to the allegation that the Federation’s decision making process was not democratic, Allison- explained that, “Every faculty on campus elects representatives to sit on student council. Students council meets at least once a month to review all decisions made by the President, the executive, and the Board of Directors.” He also said that, his “advice toanyone who thinks the system is unfair, not working or undemociatic is that they can change it.” Allison said that procedures exist for changing the systemand that Fed by-laws or policies could be changed depending on where they think the problem is. 4 He also added that, “If asked, I will put this on the agenda for the next council meeting.” Clearly, Allison and Abrams disagree on the state of the .Federation. What will result is anybody’s guess at this point.

by Corinne Dixon _ Imprint staff With times as they are, thegovernmenf is perhaps beginning to realize that some kind of restructuring program is necessary to alleviate Canada’s employment problems. As a starting off point, the federal government has a new bill and has appointed a commission to further investigate the existing system. Bill C-156 is an act to amend Canada’s Unemployment Insurance Act. It is based on the recognition that, due to the probability of high unemployment rates in 1984, the existing system (U. I.C.) cannot realistically be overhauled at this time. The new approach hopes to restructure the U.I.C. system into more of an employment insurance system. A pilot program involving $15 million in funds will introduce work sharing and retraining in plants which face the implementation of new technological methods. Also included in the amendment is a proposal to ensure the continuation of the Variable Entrance Requirement clause. This

Prof

clause recognizes that some areas have less potential for steady employment, and therefore claimants in those areas require fewer work weeks to be eligible for assistance. The Bill’s second majoramendlment isaimed atfishermen. The goal is to allow them to be eligible for insurance _on a seasonal basis. A desire for fishermen who are claimants to have the right to build new boats while claiming, and to base their benefit level on their best ten weeks if the .claim period is fifteen weeks, underlies these recommendations. The stability of the industry itself will be promoted through the income protection inherent in the implementation of the bill. Another proposed recommendation proposes that those who already enjoy a paid time-off period in the year no longer be eligible for U.I.C. Maternity benefits to both expecting and adoptive parents is another case under discussion. The idea behind the new Bill is to make the Unemployment Insurance Act less restrictive.

As an indication of the Government of Canada’s committment to increase the employability of disadvantaged groups, ‘Minister of Employment and Immigration Lloyd Axworthy announced the appointment of Judge Rosalie Abella to head a Commission of Inquiry on Equality in Employment, on June 27th. Judge Abella is a judge of the Ontario Provincial Court, Family Division. As head of the Commission, she will be investigating the views of the management and employees of crown corporl ations and others who represent women, native people, disabled persons and visible minorities. “The elimination of systematic discrimination is essential to ensure the full participation of all Canadians in the public and private sectors. The growth of the Canadian economy depends on such participation,” Axworthy explained. The findings of the inquiry will be reported to the federal government in six months.

After 15 years in the History Department at the University of v St. Jerome’s College in Waterloo, Dr. Peter Seaborn Smith is taking a leave of absence from academia to pursue a career as a full-time journalist. Smith will be based in New York and will fly to Brazil every month for one or two week stays. He will be filing stories for CP and The Globe and Mail, the Financial Post, Maclean’s, Time, Harper’s, The International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, CBC Radio and The Journal, among others. “South America is a region which continues to grow in importance,” says Smith. Some stories he intends to cover include arms purchases in Latin America now that Brazil is a supplier, the upcoming conference of the major world Confederation of Brazilian Bishops and the huge Jari forestry project in Brazil which threatens theinternational markets ofthe Canadian paper industry. “I’d also like to do stories on Canadian businessmen in Brazil,” adds Smith. “They are not at all like the Americans or the British there - Canadians ‘Brazilianize’ themselves. ALCAN, for example, has huge operations in Brazil, yet its major executives are not Canadian. I’ve been able to discover a lot of these people through the Canadian Consulate.” As for the transition from the academic to the journalistic life, Smith says many factors have worked in his favour. “I’ve spent a lot of time in Brazil during the past twenty years developing a

working knowledge of the country. Being fluent in the language has been a big help. And I think being an historian brings an important dimension to news coverage. Academic writing and teaching makes you think on your feet, and that is an essential quality in a good journalist.” “I’m also a great believer in luck,” he adds, “but you have to work hard for it. I’ve hit a streak lately,” he laughs. Smith received his Ph.D. from the University of-New Mexico in 1969, and his research has been directed towards 20th century Brazil, civil-military relations, and the politics of oil. He has written many articles on economic nationalism in Latin America, and is the author of Oil and Politics-in Modern Brazil (Macmillan, 1976). During his time at’ the University of St. Jerome’s College, he served as Assistant,Dean from 1974 to 1975 and 1980-1981. Smith is just finishing a year’s sabbatical leave during which he has spent time in South America writing for Canadian Press and other wire services. “I’ve written a lot for the Winnipeg Free Press over the years,” he says. “My work with CP while I’ve been on sabbatical has opened new career possibilities for me. I feel I’m’ ready for this move and it’s ready for me.” Smith will be addressing a United Nations conference on North-South relations in Ottawa on June 3. His topic is Brazil’s ambivalent position vis-a-vis the north-south dialogue.

OSAP ANNOUNCE OUR NEW BREAKFAST & * LUNCHEON SPECIALS!

More change s in svstem by Leo McNeil Imprint staff Students wishing to attend post secondary institutions to further their education, but who are lacking the financial resources, were given a boost recently when changes were announced in the Students Loans Act. These changes are welcome, especially in times when new jobs are making older, established jobs redundant. Where the student may have married, or been away from school for at least five years, exceptional costs not covered by the, Ontario Student Assistance Plan (OSAP) may beevident. These include: unexpected costs for such items as eye glasses, dental/ uninsurable medical costs, fire losses, theft, etc; costs for field trips, books and equipment not covered by OSAP because they are not considered essential for graduation and are above the maximum assistance allowed by OSAP; and payments on assets currently required or deemed not saleable such as a car or furniture. James MacLaren, an assistant to MP Walter McLean (PC) Waterloo North, said recently in a telephone interview that changes were needed because so many graduating students are unable to pay back interest owing on loans because of being unable to find work. Passed June 17, this amendment will extend aid to students attending school full time or part time by: 1) Increasing weekly allowances from $56.25 to $100, and 2) If the student is unemployed, a moratorium will be placed on interest payments for any loans. In such cases, students will be given a deadline of two years, instead of six months, after graduation to start paying back loan interest. This newly announced program is in addition to a provincially-sponsored Ontario Work Study Plan launched as a pilot project at UW during the 1982/83 school year. This plan enables the student to hold a part-time job to help meet educational costs and acquire a bit of work experience, according to Joanne Wade, UW’s financial aid officer. Twenty two students worked during the fall and winter terms as a result of the plan, which Joanne describes as “excellent”. All of the jobs were created around various university departments. One main criterion for any work created for students is that it must be non-profit, Joanne said. The sponsoring agency hiring student volunteers to share costs for salary on a 50-50 basis with the Ministry of Colleges and Universities, according to a press release. Students qualifying for work are given between five and 15 hours work each, depending on their need and their academic performance. But how does one qualify, or who are needy students? A student with a heavy debt load clearly qualifies. Loans from the Ontario Student Assistance Plan - OSAP -are not usually sufficient to cover all educational costs-in such a case. Or the student/family contribution cannot be made because of economic hardship. Some jobs created by the university administration as a result of the plan include: research assistant in alumni affairs; archives clerk; seasonal grounds clerk; greenhouse assistant; systems support assistant; student information. officer; several clerical assistants; video display terminal inspector; administrative helper; and other department assistants.

The Centennial Committee of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) is presently organizing a contest for postage stamp designs to help celebrate the upcoming Centennial Year of the EIC in 1987. The Committee proposes to make these designs available to the Canadian Stamp Advisory Committee as inspiration towards the final designs of one, two or three stamps that they hope will be officially accepted by the Minister.

WORD PROCESSING, TYPING Very Reasonable Rates! Choice of Paper!

infopro Telephone surveyor, a co-ed tutoring service program, and an OSAP clinic for new students were positions created with U W’s student federation. Rates of pay range from $4.00 to $6.00 per hour, to a maximum of $1000 per year per working student. H6urs worked vary: not all applicants need 15 hours a week of work to defray educational expenses. In that case several students may work five or six hours, Joanne said. Upon announcement of the provincial plan, each UW department was notified. Joanne said a committee made up of people from financial aid, payroll, placement ard planning, and the student federation receives job proposals from various departments. “We place students in a job closely related to their courses and this committee helps us decide who the most likely candidate for work is.” Some jobs requiring specific skills, such as typing, may be harder to fill, because the candidate must be a competent typist. The video display terminal inspector is a relatively new area and some one knowing about such systems was needed. However, *most jobs are “pretty normal” according to Joanne. Ten people are working during the spring term, she said. Besides adequate marks, students should meet such qualifications as: must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada for one year; they should not have defaulted on previous student loans and be recommended by a financial aid official. Students must also be registered at one of the following participating post-secondary Ontario schools as fulltime students: a university; a community college; Ryerson ‘Polytechnical Institute; or the Ontario College of Art. “Students owing thousands of dollars in loans are really in need of help. This type of program also provides excellent incentive to help a person continue education which may be otherwise delayed,” said Joanne.

hting for rights Athletes in professional sports leagues With the impending court battle between the National Hockey League and the St. Louis Blues, and the ongoing battle between Al Davis of the Oakland Raiders and the National Football League, it looks like professional leagues are in for a real kick in the pants pretty soon. Traditionally in a monopoly situation, professional leagues have set their own rules and people have followed them. Or else they weren’t involved. Plain and simple. The above court battles, and previous ones involving players seeking free agency status, are destroying the leagues’ hold on their exalted position. Leagues must soon start to realize that they cannot operate with philosophies that go against established human rights codes. Free agency was the first step in destroying leagues’ claims that they should be allowed to buy and sell players as property. Next came prosecution of players for unnecessary assault, and the leagues were forced to take another steo backwards. That legal precedent clearly established that leagues could not be allowed to operate within the rules of their own institution if those laws were in contradiction of society’s laws. Sports fans will still argue with that court decision, defending these actions as ‘in the spirit of the game’. But let’s face it, if a man attacks another with intent to injure, it doesn’t matter where he does it. Free agency recognizes that players have the right to be people and not property. Granted, free agency has resulted in inflated salaries and a general depreciation of the soort’s standards; but were they treated like people in the first place, salaries wouldn’t be-inflated today. Al Davis took the NFL to court because the NFL had decreed that Davis could not move his Oakland Raiders from Oakland to Los Angeles. It’s not hard to understand wh,y Davis won. What court would not allow a man to move to another city, and take with him something he owns. Barring that would destroy everything the free enterprise system is built on. And now, we must go through the same thing again with the National Hockey League. Ralston-Purina, who own the St. Louis Blues, were told by the league that they

couldn’t sell the team to a group of businessmen from Saskatoon. Ralston-Purina is now suing the league, and will win. The courts are not about to issue a decree that stops a man from selling something he owns. That, again, would be a direct contradiction of the free enterprise system. It is high time that professional sports leagues woke up to the reality of their position. Sports is big business. As a big business, they must govern themselves accordingly. As an institution in our society, they must govern themselves according to theerules of our society. Court decisions have clearly indicated that the days when professional sports leagues were left to their own devices are over. They will no longer be allowed to ignore basic human rights. Had they recognized that their days as a priveleged member of our society were numbered, they could have taken steps to establish themselves in the new genre of sports leagues. Instead, they denied or ignored the problem. Now they have big problems. The white horse they have been perched on for years is getting lame, and they have no replacements. It is sad to see men who thought they were secure and protected scrambling around without knowing what is going on. The sight is going to be even sadder as time passes. The leagues do not seem to understand why they are losing court battles. They do not seem to understand that they are not being allowed to operate as independent states, and they seem-unaware of or insensitive to, basic human rights. It is never nice to watch men make fools of themselves, and lose, but it is nice to see people fight for their rights, and win. Whether the Blues move to Saskatoon or not is not really important. What is important is that professional sports leagues are going to have to conform to societal rules. And that means human rights. Whether a sports fan or not, follow these court battles with interest. They are not about sports; they are about people.

The current space-reallocating going on in the Campus Centre has bred a lot of community feeling in the groups residing therein. Feeling grateful to a certain Fed president who shall remain namelss (called “Tommy’ by his friends), the Imprint staff wondered what they could do fir him to make him feel good about the whole experience too. But they didn’t know what he liked Fraser Simpson and Terry Bolton, both of whom like puzzles, tried to guess, and retired to a corner to plsy with odd squares and reference books. I.60 McNeil, the ever-direct but obscure, wondered if Tommy was a member of any sexual minorities and set out to ask him, but lost his way. He ended up on southern King street, intervieWrig a dwarf. Terri Greece bribed a few Fed execs, to check out Tommy’s prejudices and pleasures, but became so red-faced at the answers we had to sedate her. Donald Duench listened to her talk in her sleep and became a catatonic - whetever it wsa, he couldn’t take it even third hand or maybe Terri was adding something of her own John McMullen and Corinne Dixon tried to investigate the matter but Corinne became too interested in John. . . why not, everyone&e has. Cathy and Brian tried too, but Brian couldn’t stop Cathy from gigglfng so very little got answered Alan Mears didn’t want to do any investigating, but said he’d take pictures if it was good Cathleen the Ad Manager thought of an approach but, being Catholic, confessed too soon and nearly ruined the whole thing. Sylvia, declaring she wouldn’t have anything to do with anything so sordid, flounced off to her class in creative cat-fixing, pausing only to ask us to telephone her when the answers were in. That left Don and I. After getting Don liquoredup we went up to the Fed office to find.. Tommy industriously sawing away at his floor, building an escape hatch. The author leaves to the imsgination which group is getting reallocated to that corner of the Campus Centre which is under the Prez’s office. Ain’t it nice to know that the Feds are stffl landing body blows for the student j.w.b. body? Good luck, stay clean.

by don button Imprint staff ZZ Top EliminCZt0r

WEA Records ZZ Top’s newest release, Eliminator, would win the award for the least pretentious album of the year - if there was such an award. It is hard to imagine how three men (Frank Beard on drums, Dusty Hill on bass and vocals, and Bill Gibbons onguitarsand vocals) can produce such a powerful and full, clean sound. Now recognized as the premiere southern rock band, ZZTop have their rootsin the same soil th a ,;I oouced such noteworthy southern rockers as Charlie Daniels, The Allman Brothers, and Lynrd Skynrd. in a way, ,L -i- ,p 3 I IW to the iup followed the demise of their competition. Lynrd Skynrd, unfortunately, met their demise when most of the band’s members died in an airplane crash at the turn of the decade. The Allman Brothers and Charlie Daniels removed themselves from the picture: The Allman Brothers discovered drugs, and Charlie Daniels discovered country and western. But ZZ Top must get ‘most of the credit for their success. In the 70’s, they attracted fans who wanted more drive and energy than the

sappy ballads and pap pop could provide, but also wanted a cleaner, simpler sound than the heavy metal screamers were delivering. And today, ZZ Top is joining the reunion groups in filling the void left by new music’s electronic coldness. At one time, ZZ TOP was no better than the new music bands of today. More effort was put into their gigantic Texas-shaped stage, their loud and gaudy special effects, and their menagerie of farm animals than into their music. That was an age of elaborate tours, and ZZ Top’s were as elaborate as any. But like almost all of the bands of that era, ZZ Top lost money. Today’s live ZZ Top shows are simpler. The

boogiein’ with lots of R&B; and that is exactly what Eliminator is. Eliminator’s songs embody the southern rocking of Fandango and the R&B blues of Degwalla, producing an album that is fast-paced and lively with the solid base of well-conceived songmanship and quality musicians. They are Saturday night street songs: simple, driving, unpretentious, and good.

For ZZ Top fans, Eliminator will be no surprise. It is simply three musicians (with studio assistance providing a synthesizer for two brief instances) doing what they do best, and doing what their fans want. They don’t pretend to know the solutions to the world’s woes, but neither are they ignorant of them. Their songs may seem to be restricted to women and cruising, but in them is a basic human love and warmth sadly missing from a lot of music. For people hearing ZZ Top for the first time, their first single from the album, Gimme All Your Loving, is a pretty good indication of the band’s sound. Their move to the charts is not a sell-out to commercialism, it is simply an indication of changing tastes. Eliminator and ZZ Top remain true to southern rock and ZZ Top. Their music may be too guitarish for today’s electronic ears, but ZZ Top has risen to the top with their music, and, based on great record sales figures in a slumping industry, I’d have to say that there are quite a few out there who miss rock and roll and its roots. Eliminator is as good as any ZZ Top album, perhaps even better. It may be a goodcombination of the raw power of Fandango and the rhythmic mastery of Degwello, but most of all, it is three good old boys from the south rocking as hard as they can. And when ZZ Top rocks, people listen.

It broadcasts on CBC Stereo, Saturday, July 30 at 11:05 a.m. and on CBC Radio, Sunday, July 31 at 2:00 p.m. Laraine Scott began her professional singing career as a member of Cousine, an established female vocal act produced by Bobby Taylor of Motown fame. She is currently a member of Rainie Brown, a duo that has a dance EP climbing the charts. In 1982, she was nominated as Best Female -Vocalist at the Canadian Black Music Awards.

Pianist Bill King is no newcomer to CBC audiences. He performed on Toller Cranston’s television special Strawberry Ice, as well as doing keyboard work for Homefires. During the 1960’s and 70’s, he actedas musical director for Janis Joplin, comic Robert Klein, and Martha Reeves, a Motown recording artist. The tunes performed in this concert reflect the Motown Sound and include My Guy, Tracks of My Tears, You Are, and Streetlife, among other contemporary blues and pop tunes.

Canadian francophone syntho rockers, Men Without Hats, have left their “Message” with the U.S. dance scene. The Hatless bunch have scored a number one disco hit with Safety Dance, pushing Nashdance out for the number one position. The band also showcased at the 4th annual New Music Seminar (N.M.S.) in New York this past week. The two day N.M.S. has grown from a delegation of two hundred three years ago, to an astonishing attendance of 2,000 this year. Hospitality suites and three piece suits ran rampant this year. Seems even the record companies are tired of the “corporate rock”of Asia, Genesis, et al, and are now ready tostart spoonfeeding the likes of Thomas Dolby and Duran Duran. They’ve found a new label in “New Music”, found a few bands and it’s time to start making some money. Will the big business attitude ever change? The seminar has worked hard to encompass the important Black music scene with Funk, scratch DJ’s, dancing and Rap. Nothing necessarily new, but fun and refreshing. Toronto’s CFNY is attempting to advance the independent music scene with a five day showcase of independent and non-recording acts at Larry’s Hideaway+ The Streets of

Ontario Summer Showcase will run from Tuesday, July 19th through Saturday, July 23rd, with three acts playing nightly for a $5.00 ticket price. You’ll find reggae, pop, funk, new wave and electronic styles presented in an attempt to promote the awareness of the recording projects of the bands. Tickets are available at the door or through the Record Peddler in Toronto. Shows not to miss: The third annual Police Picnic hits the C.N.E. stadium August 5th. This year’s bill features a little more variety in its acts, which should provide a great day of outdoor music. Peter Tosh, King Sunny Ade, Simple Minds, The Fixx, and Blue Peter - all for a $20.00 ticket price. Talking Heads will be “Burning Down the House” August 13th at the Kingswood Theatre at Canada’s Wonderland. Wonderland and the C.N.E.

The City of Toronto is seeking an injunction to halt noisy rock concerts, and charges will be laid against the Kingswood Theatre if the noise problem is not rectified.

don button Imprint staff Walter Walker A Dime to Dance By Harper and Row If A Dime to Dance By is any indication of Walter Walker’s potential, people could be hearing a lot about himin the next few years. Of course, as a first novel, A Dime to Dance By isn’t enough on which to judge the new American author. This could be the first work by a significant literary craftsman, or it could be his only work with apparent merit. The book in itself is not enough to make me think Walker has some potential. What does, though, is his Updikeish commentary on middle-class Americana. As an Updike fan, I salute anyone who canequal hisabilitiesin thisarea. Walkerdoesequal them, but he can’t last as long. The vast majority of Updike’s writing gives him the forum to air his observations, and he takesadvantage of just about everyone of these opportunities. The first half of A Dime to Dance By is excellent in this regard, but social commentary gives way to plot and is lost in the second half of the novel. The plot centres around the narrator, Chuck (Chuckie) Bishop, a playboy attorney in Portshead on the U.S. Eastern seaboard. A local football hero who’s high school buddies are Chuckie agrees to represent a still his main companions, Portshead police officer who shot one of Chuckie’s less successful high school buddies during a burglary. Local politics, and crooked and selfish politicians, move the case from an internal police enquiry into a grand jury indictment hearing. Sidebar interactions fit in nicely and make this novel more than a casebook, also giving Walker the opportunity to do some social exploring. But as the pages turn, less sidebars and more legal and political manoeuvering are presented, and the book starts to lose some of its appeal. There is certainly nothing wrong with legal triumph books, but if that is the desire of the reader, he/she would be well advised to pick up a Victor Bugliosi book instead. All Bugliosi does in his books is talk about the legal battles and how great he was in them. Walter Walker isalsoa lawyer, and while I have no information on his capabilities, he would be well advised to leave the legal writing to Bugliosi. The problems with diminishing appeal as A

Dime to Dance By proceeds stems from Walker’s apparent delusion that the average reader is as interested in the legal forum as lawyers are. But that is understandable. As a lawyer first, and a writer second, Walker can be excused for over-valuing the interest in how great lawyers are. If he wants to sell books, however,

DANCE

AWAY

excuses aren’t good enough and he will have to control that bias in his writing. Aside from this tendency, A Dime to Dance By is a good first novel. I found it amusing, and hard to put down. And while Idon’t agree with all of his ‘people observations’, some of his points struck home and others made me stopand think. So,full marks to him in that regard. One thing about A Dime to Dance By that does bother me quite a bit is the comparison of Walter Walkerand John Updike. ’ As America’s premier writer of the day, at least in my opinion, the comparison to Updike cannot be taken lightly. And here is where I am torn. The similarities between A Dime to Dance By and Updike’s Rabbit series are striking. Rabbit Angstrom is a former high school basketball star turned respected, successful businessman in a town about the same size as Portshead, and in the same area of the country. Chuckie’s history and position are strikingly similar. Rabbit’s relationship with his son is remarkably like Chuckie’s troubles communicating with and understanding his daughter. As well, Chuckie’s ex-wife and Rabbit’s wife could have been (and might be) sisters. Situational similarities aside, Rabbit and Chuckie have a noticeable likeness in hang-ups, and agree on many social issues. They also seem to draw the same conclusions from their surroundings. The problem, for me, is deciding whether Walter Walker is a devout Updike fan and well versedin his writings, or whether the two men simply have the same basic philosophies and are fundamentally the same at arm’s length as it were. The two authors have reasonably similar backgrounds, and live within 100 miles of each other. This could explain the similarities, since, theoretically, they have both been observing the same people. And the United States is full of Rabbit Angstroms and Chuck Bishops, which could explain the desire of both authors to use such an ubiquitous character. But those may not be the explanations, and I remain undecided on the issue. Either Walter Walker is an unclaimed genius, or he has been over-influenced by a major author’s works. None the less, A Dime to Dance By is one of the better first novels, and makes for good reading. I don’t think I’ll solve my dilemma before reading Walker’s next novel, but individual readers are certainly welcome to form their own opinionson the matter.

West is the best

by Donald Duench Imprint staff The‘ challenger with the long blonde hair that has become his trademark had said that he might win the championship after eight rounds. He only missed that goai by three minutes.Local boxer Don “Golden Boy” Lalonde took Roddy MacDonald’s Canadian light-heavyweight championship before about 2000 fans (and a national television audience) at L&rier last Monday. Lalonde won-by a TKO when the doctor stoppkd the fight between <he ninth and tenth rounds, due to a gash below-MacDonald’s left eye. The first round of any fight is usually not known for excitement, but this one’s was an exception, Fighters t&d to try to acquaint themselves with the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses in the first three minutes, especially ifthey have never met before. This time, each combatant knew enough about the other to mix it up early. MacDonald landed the first goodcombination of the night, bu<Lalonde came back with three solid punches of his own to end the round. In the second and third, Lalonde began to dance and weave around the ring, forcing MacDonald to take m&e steps than he wanted to. The crowd’s cheers for the Kitchener fighter rose higher as he kept avoiding the right hand that had knocked out twenty of MacDonald’s previous opponents. The fourth round was the turning point of the match. The champ was keeping his guard up, while Lalonde had to hold his left arm low, due to an injury as a teenager while playing hockey. As Lalonde noted later,

MacDonald was unable to see his left come up for jabs to the face, resulting in the cut below the eye. Both kept connecting with solid blows in the next two rounds. The challenger would score with a jab, but the champ would come back with punishing hooks and uppercuts. When the bell sounded to end the sixth of the twelve scheduled rounds, each fighter seemed able to last until the end. MacDonald, fighting in trunks sporting his family tartan, kept Lalonde Cornered in the seventh, and-unloaded a powerful right to the challenger’s head, almost snapping it back. It turned out to de the last round of the fight that the champ would dominate. Lalonde regained the momentum in the eighth, scoring to the head. He had MacDonald caught in a corner, and might have ended the fight there if the bell had not rung. The last round belonged entirely to the Golden Boy. He was able to deliver his punishing left uppercuts and right hooks to MacDonald, who’s chest was gradually covered with blood from thegash. The bad cut forced the fight doctor to tell referee Lionel Sullivan to end the fight. The new champion, sipping from a bottle of champagne in his dressing room, was happy with the way he fought. “I went dowi to the States for three months to -train, and it paid off. I’d never gone past eight.” Winning the Canadian title is the first step of a long road for Lalonde, whose record now stands at 14 wins and only one loss. “I was very happy to have it here,” he noted. “I want to bring a world title fight to Kitchener.” If he does get a shot at Michael Spinks, the world lightheavyweight champion, he will have done himself, and his city, proud.

Before this year’s World University Games, Canada had won only six gold medals in Games competition. During the Edmonton Universiade, Canada won nine golds, one of which was taken by Mike West, a resident of Waterloo who will be entering Health Studies at UW in September. West finished first in the finals of the 100 metre backstroke at a time of&.64 seconds, a Games and Canadian record. The eighteen year old swimmer, who has trained seriously since 1979, also won a bronze at the 200 m backstroke. He had the fastest time in the morning heats, which put him behind the eventual silver and bronze medalists for the 100 metre final. West recalls that “it was a bit closer than I had planned. I didn’t know that I had won until I looked at the scoreboard.” West’s parents were part of the sell-out crowds that went wild with each Canadian triumph in Edmonton. He says that the fans “were a major part of the competition. They were really good.” He has not decided whether to swim for the Warriors swim team this season, or to remain with the Region of Waterloo (ROW) club for one more year. The difficulty of his decision is compounded by the timing of important Olympic trials, which coincide with OUAA and CIAU meets. West’s teammate from ROW, Victor Davis, is also on the national team, but was{ooyoungtocompeteinthe 1983 Upiversiade.

The Atlantic Universities Athletic Association (A.U.A.A.) has decided not tosend their football champions to a Vanier Cup semi-final in Western-Canada this year. At a meeting io Winnipeg last year, the CIAU decided to rotate the sites and conferenck pairings at the semi-finals on a four-year cycle. It allows the Atlantic Bowl to be played three of the four years, which was not good enough for the AUAA. In other football activity, Waterloo head coach Bob McKillop announced his team’s schedule of games for the upcoming season. U W will play five home contests, including an exhibition game against McGill on September 3rd. The Redmen beat Waterloo in an exhibition game in Montreal last year. One week later, the OUAA regular season opens with “a must game” against Dave “Tuffy” Knight’s Laurier team. WLU won the bragging rights of the city when they beat UW 2 l-16 last year in a very close game. On September 17th, the Warriors will tangle at home with Windsor, last year’s conference doormat at l-6. UW defeated the Lancers 16-6 in the 1982 season opener. Guelph (5-2 last year) will be the opposition in a Thursday night game on October 6th. The Gryphons won a 15-13 thriller at Seagram Stadium in 1982. The Warriors will end their regular season at home against Vanier Cup finalists Western Mustangs on October 22nd. The ‘Stangs won a 34-17 decision over the Warriors en route to meeting UBC in the Canadian final last year. Road games for Waterloo will be played against McMaster, Toronto, and York.

Sonny Lim, who narrowly lost to Madan in the semi-finals, captured third place in the field of twelve players. The ladies’ singles champion was Vicki Wilson,-after defeating Sue Rogers in three close games in the final. while third went to Maria-Mok. After defeating Terence Teh and Morning

Ong, Shawn Chuen and Raymond Leung moved into the final against Alan Yeates and Scott Remillard for the men’s doubles crown.

Plan for peace, not for war To the editor: I would like to respond to the ideas of Jenny Thiers, theauthor of a recent letter in the Imprint (June 3/ 83) in which she takes a somewhat backwards view of the peace movement and its overall purpose for being labelled as such. It was difficult to grasp the intent of her initial statements and I felt inherent contradiction in her use of the concept of the irrationality of peace. The principal basis of her assertion was that the Sovietsare: “anenemy who has clearly stated and practised expansionist policy.” But isn’t therea good deal of expansionist policy on this continent? What country does not want to grow, to expand its resources in order to better improve its impact on international trade markets and subsequently benefit its people? Thiers stated further that the Soviet philosophy and their resulting political system are immoral and evil. My I remind her that Karl Marx was not proposing a philosophy meant only for massive destruction. Even if he was, if either the Soviets or the United States are interested in destroying each other, with the destructive potential we humans have at our fingertips today, then there would be nowhere for the final victor of the battle to live; there would be no victor! I truly regret Ms. Thiers reference to-the peace movement as irrational. Like most other paranoids, she neglects the fact that people have an ability to think things through and actually reason out a plan for subsequent action. This is, I think, what the newly formed U W Peace Society is meant to accomplish. These individuals are working together to plan for a peaceful Earth in the future. Are you aware that a similar peace movement is also

active in the Soviet Union? These two groups should meet in strictly non-aggressive, appropriately-mediated seminars and talk over in a rational way that accepts that there are differences the world over, that each society hasits own political orientation, and that it is these differences and orientations that must be accounted for and made to fit together in an efficiently functioning and peaceful society. A society at war, repeatedly committing genocide with no respect for individual right to live irf peace, can hardly work as efficiently as one based on an atmosphere of acceptance and co-opera$on. Ms. Thiers’closing remark seemed out of context in herletter: “People who value their freedom, and wish to protect it, must speak now, before our elected political leaders follow 8 course of action that could result in our losing this element essential to human life; because once freedom is lost, it will be too late for words.” Do you, Ms. Theirs, actually think that continuing an atmosphere of hate and confrontation in the world is going to help gain individual freedom? It is inevitable, unless we talk rationally with our ipso facto human counterparts on the other side of the planet&hat we will continue to fight irrationally, either physically, economically, or both, in the Middle East, in El Salvador and Nicaragua, in the Falklands, et cetera. How can fighting each other be rational? It is genocide: species selfdestruction. This is completely contrary to common sense and rationally planned survival which respects the individual right to live in peace if that is how he chooses. There is a way to combine the two perspectives of mistrust and trust that pervades all political behaviour. Appropriate

Threat is not nations but nukes To the editor: What Mr. Heath seems to be saying in his first paragraph is that since the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. cannot coexist peacefully. they have only done so up to now because of the deterrence of nuclear weaponry. In other words, without the existence of these weapons, the two nations would presently be in a state of conventional warfare. Therefore, he is saying, the existence and escalation of the nuclear arms race is necessary because it keeps us all from warring. Maybe so, but it’s inevitable that the race must end at some time, in disaster. Although it is true that the real disease is the idealogical differences between the two nationzd that the nuclear race is merely a symptom of that disease, the symptom however, in this case, will inevitably lead to death - total destruction.of the earth. The arms race is like a time bomb ticking away at an ever increasing pace. The likelihood of the bombexploding, by accident or design, is just too great to allow the ticking to continue. The symptom must be alleviated, and soon, while the search for the cure (to reconcile ideological disparity) continues. Speaking of dogmatic ideologies, America seemsjust as anxious to launch a worldwide democratic revolution as the Soviet Union is to launch its communist one. In the name of democracy they have intervened in countries such as Vietnam and El Salvadore - backing questionable regimes that seem to oppose the individual rights and freedoms that the U.S. claims to uphold. America, then, is just as imperialist in nature as the U.S.S.R. but in a much more subtle manner, using economic, not political, force. Instead of marching in the armies, as the Soviets do, they . provide money and training in order to escape world-wide attention and condemnation. Also, need I remind Mr. Heath, that these“guardians of freedom”, the army, and these “elected representatives”in whom he suggests we place absolute trust and power, are also the ones who dropped the only atomic bombs that have ever been used, who have not ratified the SALT II treaty and who refuse to make a vow to not be the first to use nuclear arms. Mr. Heath’s suggestion of passively accepting the decisions of the military and the politicians reeks of Orwell’s 1984. Why not exercise the freedoms and rights we supposedly have as citizens of a democratic country to reverse this nuclear insanity? Meekness and ignorance of the masses are what allowed the nuclear buildup in therfirst place. Those of us who support, indeed, are the “peace movement” also wish to live in peace and freedom and we also have the strength and desire to defend those ideals. But not with nuclear weapons. Because we don’t believe in ‘deterrence’, ‘the two track policy’, nor the possibility of winning a nuclear war. Therefore 1 appeal to those of the pro-armament camp to reconsider the implications of the devastating arms you are choosing todefend our freedoms with. Please realize that the real and immediate source of the threat, to all of mankind, is not any particular nation, but the continued existence and development of nuclear Julie Palmer arms. ’ Math

mediation and mutual respect could begin the progression towards peace. In fact, the theory of the evolution of the human species as proposed by Darwin predicts diversity within a population -such as ourselves. There must be diversity or everything, if it was stagnant, would serve little benefit to expansion or advancement of the civilization survivally, technologically, economically, spatially, or temporally. The human species must continue to survive in diverse modes of cooperation or continue in an atmosphere of confrontation which could so easily trigger a no-win situation which, at the present state of war technology, would annihilate the human species by our own stupidity and lack of co-operative effort. Here you may say we have lost freedom. But how we co-operate remains to be determined. This point of undetermined future gives us, anybody (Capitalist or Communist), a chance, always, to exercise individual freedom. Hopefully, most individuals will concentrate their energy on expanding industrial areas that, instead of harming like war, heals like medicine. In this era of the computer our current plight of compulsive, traditional, aggressive-destructive behaviour must be acknowledged, communicated about (i.e., discussed without aggression), accepted, and changed. As long as war persists, species selfdstruction is inevitable. Threat of death caused by war is too paramount in people’s minds. It would therefore seem both a rational and a constructive alternative, if you accept the reasoning presented in this letter, to concentrate on planning peace instead! Thus, the peace movement earns its name. Kim Dawson Graduate Student

The Annex The Annex is an area of two-to-three story Victorianesue, rainbow-colored row houses with slanted, A-shaped rooves, narrow front yards, and eminently sensible scroll-work and moulding. It is an area, as well, of chic - and ticky-tacky apartment towers, romantic street-level stores with upstairs, lived-in rooms, gothic-structured churches, and awesome, grand old buildings fit for governments and schools. The Annex has as its southern border, Queen Street West; as its eastern border, University Avenue (Queen’s Park Crescent): as its western border, Bathurst Street; and as its northern border, Bloor Street West. It comprises, in other words, that part of Toronto where one finds the University of Toronto (St. George Campus), Queen’s Park, Central Technical School, and Knox Presbyterian Church (with its old British flags and starkly grand interior). The Annex received its name from its once having been part of a piece of property annexed by the expanding university. It is now (at least in its own mythology) Greenwich Village North, a Canadian bohemia, a cultural Mecca or Eden, the last best urban - and arts - community in North America. One reason why residents feel so, well, nationalistic about the Annex is that there is always something happening there. Drama at the Bathurst Theatre (a renovated, apocalyptic church); poetry recitals at local book stores, restaurant-taverns, and the university; art exhibits at store-front, eclectic galleries; and addresses by freedom fighters (ambiguity intended) at Trinity United Church are only a few cf the constant activities. Hence, there is something in the Annex for everyone. The Annex is a trendy, fashionable neighbourhood, within designer jeans-distance of Yorkville, and entertains a citizenry of students, bereted artists, U of T professors, and mannerly civil servants. Such a population lends the neighbourhood a great deal of civilization. In the summer, you can stroll any one of the maple-bordered side streets and hear musicians making love to saxophones, or caressing guitars or pianos. You can hear writers - or mere students - plunking away at typewriters as if they are singing the blues. You can meet dancers stretching their limbs in fluourescent laundro-mats; actors imitating the police, eating in donut shops; sculptors shaping the foam on their beers, poets reciting the stops on the Spadina (subway) line! The cultural attributes of the Annex influence its commerce. Hungarian, East and West Indian, Spanish, and Chinese restaurants, all within steps of each other, compete amicably to convey the most exquisite cuisines to Annex residents and visitors. Health Food stores prosper. (There is even a natural food restaurant: The Renaissance.) New and used books, records, and-clothes may be bought at any number of boutiques. One of the greatest attractions of the Annex is its multicultural, multiracial, and multilingual spirit. You can receive an education in different cultures by simply walking

downastreet. InaUofTparking-lot,onahot summernight,you may hear a Trinidadian steel-band “take you home”. The man or woman who operate a corner store are likely to be Chinese or Italian. The local furniture store may be owned by Jamaicans. Fellow Nova Scotians may be met at First Baptist Church (the Black Nova Scotia church) on any Sunday. The Annex teaches c you that the world’s people are one. It is no wonder,‘then, that the Annex is the home of such cultural night life as Kensington Market (visit Tiger’s Coconut Grove), China Town (exquisite), the Grance, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Conservatory of Music, the Parliament Building, the Royal Ontario Museum, and U of T(lest we forget). The area exudes excitement, from neo-Platonist neon to socialist streetcars. If you are an artist or a bon vivant, you will blossom. (After all, the CBC considers the Annex to be the centre of Canadian culture!) ‘. Politically, the Annex is mainly NDP and Liberal in allegiance. Its MP is the Hon. Daniel Heap (NDP); its alderman (for Ward Six) is former Toronto mayor John Sewells (N DP); however, it’s MPP is the Hon. Larry Grossman (PC). Living in the Annex is be$if you have unlimited financial resources, but even on a poverty budget of $35 per week, you can live quite well. The one and only (thank God!) Honest Ed’s sells most items, from clothes to dishes, at lower than usual prices; how ever, the merchandise is often shoddy, so exercise caution. At the corner stores, fresh fruits and vegetables are available at lower-than-chain-store prices. Rents range from the rodentinfested low to the ridiculously high, so shop around. (The U of T housing office,ron St. George Street, has an excellent listing of most available housing; and the service is free.) There are many Co-op residences as well. Movies can be seen at the Bloor Cinema for a buck each (after the purchase of a $5 membership). Transit facilities -streetcar orsubway -are ubiquitous. Parking space, however, is at a premium. (And yes,, Virginia, the cops do tow cars away.) If you like taverns, the Annex offers several. In the summer, visit Major Roberts on Harbord Street. (This pub hasan outdoor patio situated among overhanging maple branches and leaves, through which sun - or moon -light may filter. It also has some great rooms for drinking and discussion. Unless you’re rich, or like salads, don’t order any food.) The Sticky Wicket is another The Annex is an area of two-to-three story Victorianesque rainbow-colored row houses with slanted, A-shaped rooves, friend create happy times. Restaurants, as earlier indicated, are omnipresent. Enjoy. The Annex is a community of flutes, poetry, sparrows, patties, potters,and few fist-fights. It is the home of the Harbord Bakery (over 50 years old with succulent coissants madejust now), NO W (the entertainment newspaper), and a million, young dreams. It is a place of youth, of love, ofjazz, of surreal lampposts plastered with the manifestoes of joy, hope, and growth. Live there, it will be an experience you will always remember.
