Secret consultations determine U W’s engineering students by Todd Schneider Imprmt Staff The dean of engineering, Dr. Bill Lennox, said 111s taculty will not abandon its practice of eliminating engineering facuitlf applicants on the basis of secret consultations between highschool principals and Waterloo. Under this practice, the engineering department adjusts marks of Grade 13 applicants bl, up to 14 marks, up or down, dependin on whether the schoo f: these students attend is believed to be a tough or liberal marker. -1 he students involved are not ,formed of the practice. Dr. Eraser Mustard, one of three members of the Bovcy Commission,

criticircd the procedure, calling it “unfair to students...“: “If‘ you want to give a child an equal chance at unibersitics, Isn’t it falr to tell that child how the university will adjust his marks?” He asked those unibersities that admit to the practice, including UW and the University 01‘ ‘I oronto to stop doing it. Mr. Lennox defends the practice, and says “It is unfair to take students Lvho are not properly prepared because the>, won‘t pass.” Making the list public would encoura 7c students to transfer & etween schools, ’ an,d would incrcasc pressure on schools said to be lax in marking, Mr. Lennox said.

Imprint staff fn financial terms, Ilie Fed’s September 21 prescnlation of G. Gordon Lidd! cannot be described as a SLICC~SS. Although 1.idd\,‘j speaking ability certajnly made the evening a worthwhile one, it is imnossible to ignore the ‘fact that, based on reliminary estimates by s eff Wilson, Federation vice-nresident, the Feds ’ lost $4,000. Expenses included one night at a Toronto hotel in an economy suite, a nominal charge, gas which Mr. Wilson claimed for having driven Mr. Liddy from Toronto to Waterloo, the $4350 fee (U.S.) which‘ translates to approximately $5,000, and a charge by BASS for the production of tickets of s 165.85. Revenue consisted of about 700 tickets, sold mostly to Fed members. Also-, the Fed made a proflt of $100 on the

dinner which came after the lecture, Mr. Wilson said. Mr. Wilson continued by saying that the outlay was “an investment in the speakers series”. Speakers from Canada, including CBC broadcaster Mike Duff’y, and cartoonist Aislin, will be future , * Fedcr-d~s~e~k’b’~iie\l~~ 0 collectively, that a “speaker for speaker” matching of Canadians with non-Canadians was a. reasonable mi,nimum standard, and the series would reflect that.

ds charge foi booths by John L. Tracey Imprint staff For the first time in recent U W history. the Federation of Students has decided to charge campus clubs, both Federation and nonFederation members, for the use of the orientation booths on Club Days 01‘ this past week. The fee. which Orientation Co-chairperson Laura Redican confirmed would be non-ref‘undable, is 9;10 for the Federation clubs and $30 for

those campus organi/.ations independent of the Federation, such as WPIRG. Imprint, and CK MS. Federation president Tom Allison added that, if’ rcvenucs exceed expenses. a refund will occur. In any case. the amount charged will not cxcced $10.00. MISS Kcdican explained that the reason for the fee was a recommendation by Keith Overand that something be done to correct the problem of cleamng up after the clubs.

She added that Mr. Ovcrand would literally spend hours on the job 01‘ picking, up after clubs.

Say what you like, but I find politicians a pleasant relief from everyday reality. When the tide of accomplishment sweeps the land, technoids roam freely within the social-scientific hierarchy, and .philosophy is dead, there’s still the politician taking time out to smell the flowers and chase bubbles through the dusty corridors of intellectual utopia where the plop of a tear echoes in allusion to fossilized aspirations and hopes that necessarily succumbed to the onslaught of the holy empirical oblivion. The politician is Lynne Woolstencroft, Progressive Convervative candidate, and the bubble is a nomination for the provincial riding of -Waterloo Norht. The Tories are holding their nomination meeting on September 25th at the Waterloo Inn as the first leg of an already determined effort to render the Liberal Party an artifact in elections expected this fall. Mrs. Woolstencroft, or “Lynne” as she insists, or “Wool ey” as her children insist, spoke Monday, September 17th at a meeting of the P.C. Youths at the Campus Centre. Lynne is a very personable and apparently very sincere. And if ideals were ideas, the lady would be a political steamroller. She spoke very briefly and left the floor (all dozen of us) open to questions, to which she responded willingly but with grave misgivings of the questioners. In a less spirited version of a southern Revival, she hailed commitment, talent and honest-to-goodness footwork as the way to get things done. In an apparent effort to emphasize her public servility, she decried the ‘martyr-complex’ of the. trustees on the Boards of Education. If she wins the nomination and the election, she will “argue toe-to-toe on issues” and “workfor change” - rather cliche; but part of the ritual. “Honour and talent” were what the political process needed. Aleluhia! Bring back Joe. Here and there, she revived the audience with talk of a “party of individuals”, “awkward” but “pretty dynamic”. Yet she earlier lamented the .



“complacency” of the P.C. Party in Ontario. She insisted on tapping into the youth community in the K-W area, on being a spokesman for causes, and on playing role model to young women aching to play fly to the national political cobweb. By far, the st arousing responses from Mrs. cNere on education. She came closest Woolstenr to being ,Ilest with herself and with us when she bashed the Board of Education trustees, the politicians at Queen’s Park, and just about the whole system for failing to realize the value of youth and education to society. She spoke of apathetic politicians, co-ercing politicians, blind and stupid politicians. Poor Mr.‘Bovey. He is trying so hard for us but “the committees in Queen’s Park are intergovernmental between the P.C.‘s, Liberals and NDP and no one seems to care about education.” Mr. Bovey is concerned for students but in making his inquiries he is given certain required “terms of reference”, and money is just not one of them. Nope. Touche-pas, Monsieur. Funny situation, indeed. There is a “mind-set” in Ontario. People who just don’t care. The skilled trades and technical students are callgd “retreads” in the job search. Lynne called them some of the best. But they need equipment, concern, effort by teachers and, for heaven’s sake, money. After her session at bureaucrat-bashing, I forgave her for her previous chants of “don’t co-erce people” and “don’t bash people”. After all, it hasn’t been proven beyond doubt that bureaucrats are alive and functioning people. Mrs. Woolstencroft did not say a whole lot on a whole lot of topics. She insisted on her personal qualifications and her experience, which is indeed extensive, with bureaucrats and dead wood. If she could turn her ideas into specific plans of action, she would be a tough case to beat. She may of may not get your vote for MPP, but she has your vote for Minister of Education.

When G. Gordon Liddy addressed his audience of 700 listeners at UW last week, he repeatedly aired’ his disgust at the blissful naivete he feels is apparent in most American citizens today. He scorned modern Americans for their ignorance of Soviet military superiority and political corruption. He then claimed that h’e had taken it upon hi:nseIf to disillusion misguided Americans, thereby op:-~+-~~; their eyes to the real goings-on in the upper echelons of government. Furthermore, as an avid proponent o,f tough government, he felt it necessary to instruct people on the importance of establishing strong government policy both domestically and abroad. it it weren’t for Americsn Ironically, though, naivete and government leniency, Mr. Liddy wouldn’t have spent Tuesday evening, neatly-dressed and well-attended, before a hall of attentive listeners. Rather, he’d have been behind bards, merely half way through a prison sentence for his criminal activities of a decade ago. The irony of his evasion of any serious penalty is further underscored by the fact that he’s actually

being paid quite handsomely to recount, publically, tales of the crime of which he was convicted. For the one lecture, Mr. Liddy earned a cool $4350 (US) which, combined with royalties from his best-selling autobiography, comprise a fairly lucrative salary for only one crime of twelve years ago. 3isclaiming ignorance, many claim that it is a tribute to America’s thirst for political knowledge that Mr. Liddy ranks as one of the top five speakers in North America today. More likely, it is the product of curiosity, a facet of America’s continuing fascination with abomination. The result, though, has been to create massive success for Mr. Liddy, helping him to achieve his self-proclaimed goal: “to prevail”. Although it cost him five years in prison, the time seems to have been a small price to pay for the fame and wealth that awaited him on the outside. So, despite Mr. Liddy’s denouncements, ignorant, soft-hearted America isn’t such a bad place to live. After all, where else does crime pay? tA’trtlrc~rirrrJ Ec~lwrrsic*illt~r

Take Back the Night



But what is men’splace? I’ve always known that it’s considered unsafe f‘or girls to go otit alone at night. The problem has been easy enough for mc to deal with; 1just escort girls home and e\,erything is fine. But I’ce never really considered the girl’s point of‘view. How must she feel to be afraid to go out alone at night, every night of’ her life? It’s a disturbing thought. This new perspective on an old topic was inspired by the article in last week’s Imprint, “Women to take back night”. An important reason for the march, and for the article, is to express this point of view. The march will also help women feel less like victims, and should make them realise how much control they can hate over their lives. Both objectives 1 agree with 100$9i. But my initial reaction to



On garden paths by Zeke Gerrard (a pseudonym) Well, this is my first time writing a column. What do I hope to accomplish? If I tell you I want to raise your consciousness, you’ll ,stop reading. Nobody wants their consciousness raised, except for a few very boring people like me. So then, I shall have to be more insidious. (Everyone knows we’re devious.) First lesson: never trust a word I say. Check it out for yourself. I wouldn’t want to be accused of leading impressionable young frosh down the garden path, now would I? The obvious corollary is that you should never trust a thing They say either. Btit that is less often stated. Because, unlike us, They have a reputation_ for = trustwbrthiness. The point is, I could be lying though my teeth (Everyone knows we’re liars), or They could be speaking out of total ignorance. You just don’t know who to believe. That’s the wonderful thing about garden paths; you can be led in either direction, any you can’t always tell whether you’re walking toward flowers or mud. I couldn’t. I was miles away:from the azaleas by the time I was your age. I was up to my chin in the compost heap, and I didn’t even know it! So what is this column about? Why the big fuss about who you believe? Why have I waited so long to break the news? (I’m afraid of rejection, that’s it. Everyone knows we’re insecure.) Quite simply, this column .is about the experience of being gay. Gasp! Choke! What a rude way for me to spoil your Friday morning - leading you on with innocent chit-chat about epistemology, one more re-hash of the You’re-bigkids-now-No-more-spoon-feeding-Have-to-think-foryourselves speech, and, then, whammo, flaunting my sexual preferences before you’ve even had your coffee. The nerve of these gays! But seriously, that’s what the column’s about, and, well, I’m not going to be too apologetic if it distrF_sge,s your digestion. You don’t have to read 1t. It’s up to you: you can stand firmly mired in the muck, or, if you want, you can come for a walk down the garden path. and take a closer look at those limp little lavender pansies...

the article was anger. 1 was offended at being asked to “show’ I (my) support by staying home” on the night of the march. Is this1 the most cf‘f‘ectice action they can suggest if I “wish to do] something about violence against women’? Does this mean that\ if‘ I’m not a woman, that I can’t help? I hope not. And how about the corollary? If 1 go out that night, am I implying opposition ? 1 was going to play in a co-ed volleyball game that night. I.hc idea of’ not allowing - men on the march was to let women “experience their own power”. Fine. 1 think a lot of womkn have more power than they rcali/e. But by excluding all men I feel that I’LU been stcreotypcd. And in the setting ofa march such as this, that stcrcotypc is bound to be one of harmf’ul, \ iolent males whom women “suf‘fer at the hands of”. . All men arc not to blame. Some certainly are. But 1 think that if‘thc approach is to separate the women f‘rom the men, then our dif‘f‘crenccs rather than our similarities will be emphasi/.ed. 1 can’t see how-that can help any problem that has a component of‘ discrimination. It seems obvious that the constant protection of‘ women by men (as suggcstcd in the article) isn’t going to help in the long run. It can o111)~cnf’orcc the tradition of‘womcn bcingdependent on mtn. What I’m loohing f‘or nom are sonic uscl‘ul suggestions fol u hat men can do to help. Perhaps the Women’s Commission of the l-cdcration of’ Students ha:, some ideas.

To the editor: Welcome to Waterloo, boys and girls! Ah yes, Waterloo Region, home of your fabled institutes of learning, purveyors of insurance policies and sensible shoes, producers of .statistically significant quantities of beer and sausage, not to mention a stable tax base. Yet, all is not well. Waterloo Region also merchandises DEATH! Yes, neighbours, it’s sad but true. With cut-rate land and outright grants, our elected officials and largely unwitting populace are encouraging an arms manufacturer, Diemaco Inc., to expand its production of assault rifles! Oh wkJ1, you say, Canada’s finest(?) need rifles, if not to protect us against U.S. or Soviet missiles (tee hee) at least for target practice.

Surely,, even people who can’t find a job are entitled to some fun, are they not? Aye. but here’s the rub: Canada will export a lot of those weapons. Currently, Canada- the beloved international peacemaker, sells about $150 million worth of guns to less-industrialised countries such as Argentina, Bolic ia, B.ra/il, Chile,. Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Malaysia, J’akistan, Peru, South Korea and Thailand. You can bet your OSAP loan that those weapons won’t beused f‘or, shall we say, peaccf‘ul pursuits. Shame on Waterloo Region. I thought 1 lived in a peace-loving town. If‘ it wasn’t for the good sauerkrhut, I’d leave tonight. Ted Bennett UW Graduate ’



by Janet Panabaker Imprint staff What is Wendy Henry trying to do to me? 1 can’! turn on the television anymore without being bombarded with U’end! Henry’s tips for rainy days and busy mornings. Who is she to tell me how to eat or feed the kids? Does she hacc ;I degree in Meat Studies? One would think so, after hea: 111::the authority in her tone. Where did the bright boys and girls at Mapl@ Leaf Meats find this Wendy Henry person, anyway? Did she win a contest, or answer an ad in the Globe urd Mui/? (“Typical work&g housewife wanted. Must know about cold meats and bacon. Inquire Maple Leaf Meats, Absurdity Dept.“) So many questions spring to mind when 1 think about Wendy Henry. Is that her real name? Do her kids really dogs every time it rains? Why doesn’t she let them get have catsup or mustard with them? Why is the television on’while they’re playing checkers? Nobody’s watching it, and the picture doesn’t look very good. Why don’t they have their. T.V. fixed?4nd why does she only bring home tw’o bags of groceries, when she has two kids and a husband to feed, and all those cold meats to buy? Enough is enough! I don’t need the sort of‘guilt Wendy Henry is throwing at me. 1 can’t help it that Schneider’s summer sausage is usually cheaper than Maple Leaf’s, and that the no-name brand, if I can get it, is cheaper still. 1 can’t help it that 1 have no kids who want hot dogs an) more than 1 can *help the fact that eating bacon in the morning always leaves me feeling sick all day. What does she want me to do? It’s too late f‘or me to change my lifestyle, to re-think everything I’ve ever learned, so why doesn’t she leave mc alone? 1t is my firm con\.iction that the s’ooner we get Wendy Henry and her mute husband and precocious kids of‘f’the air. the sooner we’ll solveall the other problems we f‘ace in the world today. Maq’be, if we’re really luck),, slie’ll take Bill Nicholls and his Loblaw’s Insider’s Report with heI when she goes.

by C. Otis Slug (a pseudonym), Imprint staff G. (for grotesque) Gordon Liddy was in;town last week, as you must have read, if you read this socially concious rag. Known for his pride in acts of self-mutilation, rat eating, and other existentialist parlour tricks, still Mr. Liddy sometimes seems almost sane. For instance, h.e remains convinced, (as do I). that a modern nation needs an intelligence service. But spies and civil rights are not the subject of this column. Let’s leave that for McMurtry and others of his ilk of political climber. 1. Mr. Llddy and 1 agree upon another matter: the mass 01: people are governed by illusibn, They see what they want to se, and tri desparately to ignore all else that might destroy that illusion. Most of you, dear readers, will have already stopped reading. You’ve turned to the sports, or the classifieds, or the funmes, hke the r.ombles you are. But, 1 am nothing if not stubborn. and so I will carry on. Duty before all! Back to illusions. Let’s talk about overpopulation in the third world. Have you ever noticed that the reasons for overpopulation are never explained? The implication of most ‘orthodox theorists is that we are to blame it on a mix ofcultural, ‘racial and religious traditions. The peasants of the third world lare just too ignorant to understand that more children dooms .thcir country to more poverty. , How like us smug, materially satisfied Canadians to blame it on ignorance, as if the poor are automatically also Stupid. It is patently absurd that all peasants, because they are peasants, are also ignorant. Yet, such are the rationali/.ations which sit well with the’ mass of people, rationalisations which are both simplistic and callous. , There are no pensions in the Third World. Therefore, as the ‘person gets older, and cannot produce enough, there is a real chance of starvation. Because food prices are kept low in most lof these countries, there is little opportunity to save for ,retirement. Farmers get poor or no return on investment, and /rural workers are paid pennies a day, when they can find work [unemployment is highest in the countryside). The parents must iely upon their children to support them through old age. ’ Are you still reading? Do you begin to see the shoddiness, the -oversimplification of the ignorant, lazy peasant rationalization? The problem is increased by the lack of health care and -proper nutrition in the rural areas of the third world. There are countries out there, dear reader, where 50%~ of all births do not .reach adulthood. Third world parents realise that a portion of their family will die during youth, they also know that their future well-being dependsupon the survival of a certain number of children. So, they adapt and have more children,

who live in the country, and in order to survive, these peasants must have large families. Therefore, these countries are overpopulated, with a majority of citizens under the age of 20. Ta-da! Simple, huh? Now we know the problem, so we should be able to figure out a solution. That’s +mple too, in theory. Give more money to the rural sector through price increases and loans, SO that workers can have jobs and farmers can re-invest. Improve social services so that fewer children die, and the aged don’t have to worry about starvation. But, wait. See those drunken guys in uniforms, with the auto mat;c weaponsand the torture cyuipment? . Those guys are representatives of the state, the established order, them. That order is founded on the city, on exporting cheap goods and luxury foods, to import expensive machinery, to industrialise. They want to keep food prices down in order to keepworkers’ wages low and to enhance the marketability of their food exports. As long as the established order thinks m this way, peasants will have to have large families to survive, the population problem will remain insoluble, and the comforting blamejof the ignorant peasant illusion will be needed, to protect our guilty consciences. We all know who benefits from the established order, don’t we? Multi-nationals, the industrial sectors of aid giving c.ountries (aid givers usually tie the amount of aid to the amount the receiver buys from the giver.), the elites of the third world, and us. That’s right, us. We get cheaper goods and cheaper luxury foods from these poor countries, at the cost of immeasurable suffering there. Perhaps if‘ we lived in it, we would be moved to help. Perhaps not. It probably depends upon one’s upbringing. Still, the illusion of the lazy, ignorant peasant sure makes it easier to swallow the bananas on your cereal in the morning. The land that produced your breakfast garnish could have fed some of those lar.y, starving people, if it were not factory farmed by De1 Monte or United Fruit. Too bad. So, as you walk down the corridors of lif’e, remember your friend, Slug. Remember he warned you about illusions. And the next time someone tells you that civil unrest in the third world is all a Commie plot (number one on Reagan’s illusion parade now), remember that millions are living in misery. What would you do if your brothers-and sisters died from lack of health care while others your age were driving BM W’s. What if you knew that you, your parents, all those around you, even your future children, were doomed to misery and pove’rty, while 5. chosen few of your countrymen laughed and ignored your plight‘!

We can stop blaming the Pope’s influence, fertility rituals, and ignorance. Those things may be factors, but they are minor. .I’he ma.jority of the population in the Third World are peasants

old win car rally by Ruth IMillar T‘he Fed car rally got off’ to a quick start I I:00 a.m. last Saturday morning. Tttacnty five “rally” cars, ranging from a Delta 8X to a Fiero, left at two minute intervals from campus parking lot A. Each car consisted of’ two people - the driver and the navigator, along with rally instructions and a full tank 01 gas. The first section of the rally

took the participants on a romp through subdi\ isions in the Wcstmount area. The other sections ot‘thc rally, wcrc not nearly so popuiatcd. Drivers wcrc warned that the routes would take them down dead end streets, roads under construction and cvcn some closed roads. T hcse conditions didn’t stop anyvone from completing the rally. T‘he rally rcyuircd each team to nab igate dttlercnt

routes so as to reach various checkpoints at certain times. Points were awarded f‘or arriving at check-points close to the designated times as wcii as I‘or answering specific yucstions and for picking up a l‘cu, articles along the way. Although there were no accidents (contrary to the headline). there were a few exciting moments shared with a Mack truck. kids playing. on t hc road. and a psychottc

farrncr. Ail in ail, the first Fed car rally, organised by Laura Redican, turned out a success - especially L‘or the winners in car #23, Brian Robin and Alar Ruutopold.

~-Bleak ‘chances 0.1‘-I’AWA (CUP) -- Hundreds of high school graduates scrambling to get into university may be out of luck as many institutions across the country impost stiff ,enrolment restrictions for the first time. Along with community college transfer students, high schoolers arc competing fiercely for the few spots available in already overcrowded universities. They are trying to return to school after suffering another summer unemployment rate of20 per cent. The competition is especially intense in Ontario. At the University of Toronto’, more than 25,000 students have applied for only 6,300 spaces. At York University, which is accepting 200 fewer first year students in September, nearly 19,000 arc vying for .4,700 spots. Administrators .at both universities say strained resources have forced them .bo close their doors. Sheldon Levy, York associate vice-president, said inadequate government financing, cramped yuartcrs and a desire. to preserve the existing quality 01 education prompted the administrations’s move to restrict enrolment. At the U niversilty of Alberta, nearly 2,000 students have been rejected. They ‘failed to meet the university’s new academic standards, which jumped from an average of 60 to 65 per cent‘ this year. l’he U of A student union recently took the university to court in a bid to remove the new standards. But an Alberta court judge ruled in favour of the administration, saying

&ough notice had been given to grade 12 students who would need summer school to boost their grades for admission. At the Unib,ersity of Manitoba, 500 students seeking scicncc degrees have been tcrned away. Restrictions are now in place there in every faculty except arts, said Desmond Bevis. dircctol of admissions. l‘he University of B.C,, which has pegged first year enrolment at 3250 students, has rejected 500 students who failed to make the grade standard of a C-plus average. -In St. John’s, Newfoundland, Memorial Uniters-ity is thinking of limiting access in first year to 3000 students. But Ward Ncale, Memol:ial’s vice-president academic. said no official decisions hake been made. Although total numbers of rejections were ‘not avaiiablc before the end of registration. thousands are also being turned away from colleges and- technical institutes. Beth Ollcy, Canadian F’ederation of Students c’hair, said accessibility for new students looks just as bl’cak as it did last year. , Olley said man] high school aid transfer students arc ‘not ecen applying for post-secondary education because they do not have the rnoncy. “.Wc know pcoplc are being turned away irom the doors 01 uniccrsities and collcgcs.

Orwell- on campus? OTTAWA (CUP) -- Canada’s nationwide professors’ association fears new security legislation will mean stepped-up spying of professors and students, especially non-Canadians, on campuses this fall. And the law is not likely to change with a Tory government in power, Donald Savage of the Canadian Association 01 University Teachers said. In its August newsletter, CAUTsays the spy act could be used “to justify unwarranted interference with the teaching and research activities of university professors.” Act C-9 allows the government to target foreign students and foreign professors at will, said Savage, CAUT executive secretary. The newsletter says the security service could pass information on visiting professors back “to foreign states however authoritarian they might be.” Bill C-9, the Liberal government legislation to create a Civilian Security lntellignece Service, passed before the House of Commons recessed in June. “Most Conservative MPs did not show up for the final vote on the bill,” Savage said. “Revising Bill C-9 is not on top of the list for a new Tory government. 1 have no doubt...the legisla_fion

will stand.” CAUT recommended to the commission that the files be destroyed and (former) Solicitor General Robert Kaplan has told the professional association that thousands of the files arenow gone. “But he’s never said how many of the files were destrolred.” Savage said. With the new legislation, “you can be targettcd 1‘01 surveillance if you raise money for Palestinian organi/.ations.” Savage said. “And belonging to’an anti-apartheid&up can bc a subversive activity.” The most’ recent case of spying on campus involved a Carleton, student, Andy Moxlcy, who admitted lhst year he was supplying information on peace groups in Ottawa. to the RCM P. “The police gave the standard response: ‘We don’t solicit this information, but we don’t turn it dciwn,“’ Savage said. “You never know what spying is going on campuses until -some scandal erupts.” C’AUI’ will lobby, the Canadian goc’crnmcnt when amendments and staiutcs tot,hc security bill arc drafted and will continue to dclcnd professors harassed by fcdcral spits.

Ottawa transit politics OTTAWA (CUP) -- Ottawa’s local transit company has.refused to reduce bus fares for post-secondary students, despite a seven year lobbying effort by student counci!s here. Three post-secondary institutions -Carleton University, the University of Ottawa and Algonquin College -suggested a $20 monthly bus pass for students, who now pay $30 a month. High school students pay only $18.50. But Jo’hn Bonsall, the general manager for Ottawa-Carleton Transpo, said a $20 pass will only be created if a universal fee of $20 i,s levied on all students during

registration. He said this move would protect the t,ransit company from possible revenue losses of up to $1 million. Tony Marcerollo, Carleton University student council vice-president, said the student association will press for its original proposal. I He said a survey commissiohed by the three shcools and the transit company discovered that students think $20 is a reasonable price for a monthly bus pass and that the company’s revenues would not drop but would increase by nearly $200,000 as a result.

“Students have to tell people they want (a $20 pass),” he said. . Marcerollo added that if. the institutions accept the transit company’s plan the reduced rate would be in place by September 1985 at the earliest, and buying passes at bulk rates would mean the student councils would incur a loss if not all students bought the idea. Marcerllo said the councils are considering other options; including possible retaliation against OC Transpo. Said John Casola, Carleton’s student council president: “How do pennies grab you...say, 90 of them?” I

I COU issues Discussion Paper on Bovey I he tollowing is a summary ot the response ot the Council of to the Discussion Paper, Ontario Ontario Universities lssues and Alternatives, of the Universities 1984 Commission on the Future Development of the Universities of Ontario.





a summary






objectives of Ontario universities and their present great importance for both Ontario and Canada through their core undertakings of teaching and research. In reaching a point in their development where enrolment and sponsored research are at record levels, Ontario universities have been characterized by a high degree of institutional autonomy, particular allocation of operating funds provided through block grants. This has not been incompatible with accountability to the public nor with inter-institutional co-operation. Such autonomy requires that initiatives and management rest with individual institutions in a generally decentralized system. While the Commission accepts the Minister‘s statement that future levels of funding will not fall below the present level, its report doesn not question funding of Ontario universities. reponse, COU steps beyond the to restate its judgment that government over the past decade

the adequacy of current government For this reason, in the final section of it s parameters of the Commission’s paper financial support from the provincial has been grossly inadequate, and that

a continuation of this policy would have disastrous results for the universities of Ontario and the citizens they serve. In the central portion of its response Council addresses the main themes of the discussion paper under the headings of quality, accessibility, adaptability, system balance, funding, planning and co-ordination.

Quality - The Commission asks in which areas the universities are seriously deficient. How could the deployment of existing resources be enhanced? Despite research Ontario

the centrality of high quality academic programmes to the mission of universities and the excellent reputation universities, the quality of the university enterprise is

seriously threatened. In the case of undergraduate programmes, including some professional programmes, the quality has substantially declined. The explanation lies in the drop in provincial financial support over a period which saw a dramatic rise in student numbers, accompanied by only a modest increase in faculty positions. The decline in the quality of univer.<ity education in Ontario is most evident in the universities’ deteriorating physical plants in the studer;t:faculty ratio as it affects class size, laboratory sessions, essay anal exam reviews, counse’lling, in outdated library collections; in pedagogical and research equipment that is not ‘state of the art’.

Accessibifi!y The Commission asks which factors affect accessibility and which affect demand for university places. Who should be eligible for university study? What role should manpower planning play? Council’s brief reviews the Ontario Government’s long‘standing policy on accessibility to university studies, the financing structure through which this policy has been implemented, and questions whether the two can presently be reconciled . Fiscal restraint had virtually eliminated the universities’ capacity to absorb further enrolment growth. While endorsing that this admissions of places, admissions

the principle of broad accessibility, Council’s major concern is should mean access to an education of quality. In reviewing policies in the context of high demand for a limited number the question may be raised whether generally accepted requirements continue to be relevant. The use of

Council rejects both student vouchers and non-formula, discretionary funding as means to allocate operating funds.

A key element is the execution of the proposed new mandate for a successor to the Ontario Council on University Affairs would be a continuing and iterative dialogue with the universities on such subjects as rqle within the system, institutional capacity, resources and future plans. Responsibility for initiating the planning process would rest with the universities; the advisory agency would employ financial incentives and disincentives to further the implementation




Edmund C. Bovey .chairing Sept. 18th.

A Shift in Focus In the last section of the brief, Council steps outside the financial limits proposed by the Government and accepted by the Commission in order to underline the judgment that the Government’s desire for the maintenanality in the Ontario university system is impossible to realize in the present funding environmnet. Despite the examples of other jurisdictions where university funding has recently been reduced or systems rationalized, few if any of these have been the object of such severe financial constraints, over such a long time, as the universities of Ontario. And some jurisdictions have now reversed their earlier policies, with massive inflows of new funds. The funding of Ontario universities IS not excessive, as some have suggested - in blunt fact it is inadequate. !mprovement in institutional planning and programming, in interinstitutional co-operation and co-ordination, in system structures and methods of funding allocation can be made in the interest of enhanced efficiency and effectiveness, but none will improve support remains at its current level. Can the Province spend more money on its universities? The pressing afford not to?, so essential are these institutions to the Province. Ontario‘s technological

Any further adaptation direction must take into account the imperfection of present manpower planning techniques, the considerable lea-time required for major shifts in discipline emphasis, and the probable need for supplemerltary funding.

by Hilkka McCallum Imprint staff On the stage, draped in black, stands a gutted white piano on an akward angle. The old porcelain bathtub steadily drips water. A ladder hovers, suspended over the stage, and a closed door can be seen, glowing, above everything. The music is eerie, scratchy violins and forlorn voices fill the hollow atmosphere. The play is Harold Pinter’s Family Voices and Beckett’s Rock&y and A Piece of Monologue at the Theatre of the Arts all this week. Family Voices is in the classic Pinter style. There are non sequiters atop of chaos. The son in this story has just moved to a large city and is finding love, hate and intrigue in the most unfathomable ways. The mother sits in her old stool back at the farm pining for him as much as cursing him to stay away from her. The father, a voice from the dead, reminisces on “the good old days” while he lies in his grave, his flesh rotting. “I like living in this enormous city all by myself” declares the son, played by Ned Dickens. He promptly falls in love with Jane, a girl who can catch a pastry between her toes. “I miss you, I gave birth to you” declares his mother, played by Jan Zwicky, before her son stops writing to her. She then fumes that he is an uncaring boy who should be ashamed of not coming to his father’s funeral. He didn’t even know his father died. The father lies quietly during most of the play, but gets his soliloquy at the end when he tries to tell his son that he enjoyed his life. The play is a compilation of experiences in a normal family, but turns out odd and unrealistic because Mr. Pinter creates an emotional wall around each of them that they can’t penetrate. They are not able to enjoy life. The off-timing of bizarre remarks creates a quirky yet laughable atmosphere. Mr. Pinter’s play is a study on the lack of communication found between family members. Family ties are supposed to be the strongest. The scenery done by Ned Dickens and Wojtek Kozlinski, is captivating and mystical. For those who admire off-track, ironically humourous depictions, I recommend Family Voices. If your taste, however, stays on the maintrack, then Mr. Beckett’s Rockaby and A Piece of Monologue are not to be reckoned with. Rockuby is “all eyes, all sighs, high and low”. It is a piece of warbling poetry in the back of the mind of a dying old lady who refuses to stop rocking her chair. As long as she rocks she

won’t drop. Every few verses, when she thinks her mind has stopped talking to her she moans “m-o-r-e”. I don’t think I was the only one who was relieved when there was no “m-o-r-e”! ‘Mr. Beckett’s A Piece of Monologue was simply monotonous. The same ‘death-warmed-over’ father character of Family Voices was there to spin a tale of candies blowing out and dark corners that were impenetrable.

I be acting was apt for the parts portrayed. The actual characters in the Beckett plays were very unrealistic and unpalatable. I don’t think “that’s entertainment” for many, but I had a novel time.

by Ian McDowell

Absurdist fiction and Theatre can be far more easily described than defined. In theatre especially, antiintellectuality is the artistic foundation. The style developed, along with existentialism, in response to the “angst” seen after the First World War, where traditional systems and ideologies failed to channel sense of chaos and pointlessness. the pervadiri Criticism, unfortunately, first approached the literature of the absurd from the same standpoint that denies existentialsim as “real” philosophy (though, in fact, the philosophies of Camus and Sartre contradict themselves in an absurdist sense by founding the irrational in well-reasoned Aristotelian rationalism ;Ind rhetoric) by criticsizing the elements of style that tile writers specifically denied themselves. The attempt to evince pure and individualistic pieces created a dramatic stir among the intelligentsia of the time since it uprooted most of the foundations of western literature established since the Middle Ages. The style became identifiable by the bizarre, ugly sets and nonsense dialogue used to destro the limitations imposed by scholasticism, paradoxica Yly creating a more universal appreciation of the individualistic literature that the earlier intellectual attempt at universality. Martin Esslin, in his critical anthology The Theatre of , the Absurd describes the highly appreciative reception of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot by the inmates of San Quentin in 1957, a play which till then had, in the main, been regarded by supposedly receptive and intelligent audiences as obscure and meaningless. Beyond any attempt of definition, the writers of absurd fiction exist as a varied and barely cohesive unit. As they wrote from highly personal sources, they present no definitive body. Most are not “existentialists”; most were almost completely isolated from other “absurd&” writers. Beckett and Kafka wrote mainly from intensely personal experience, others wrote more specifically against society and governmental oppresion. Darriel Kharins and Alexander Vvedensky attacked postrevolutionary Russian through absurd tales describing such occurences as people dropping dead in supermarkets lineups as tl;ough it were an everyday occurence and living people being taken away as dead. In Poland, Witold Gombrowriz, more subtly perhaps, attacks structures and systems through his assertion that man is perpetually “immature” with his constant attempt to reach the ideals he sets up as states and religions. In CosmoS, he portrays the futility of man’s desire to ascribe patterns to the chaos in the world around him, as the pitiful but witty narrator scrambles to find the hidden meanings behind a hanged sparrow.

The road was long, the muscles strained from the burden that he bore. A humble man with an honest smile, the weight crushed him once more. The path he travelled, the load he carried, his Father chose for him. He was guided bv a blinding love that time could never dim, He could’ve been my father I could’ve been his son. I am his brother.:. The two of us are one. I couldn’t help him with his struggle, he must do it alone. 1 fDlt

Messenjah: and

by Christopher Imprint staff





Messenjah: bright, fluent, and majestic. The biggest name in North American reggae. Based in Kitchener, and managed masterfully, the Six have carved out an international reputation for themselves. So tell me why after merely a few days, there’s no magic to remember from their Bent pub performance at the Waterloo Motor Inn. When I try to recapture the event, all that remains is a hollow feeling inside. I know they’re good. Everyone knows that they’re good. And I do remember that the musicianship was faultless. But what about the performers’ challenge to move their audience, to somehow make them see the splendid images that the artist sees. When I was standing there waiting to be spirited away by the music, I could no better conlmunicate with the band, than I am able to now as I stare at my hands. I love reggae, and being Black and born in the Caribbean I was eager to identify and relate to the Brethren on stage. But all I felt was despondent emptiness. Messenjah just doesn’t do it for me any more. The music isn’t inspiring and relates poorly to the realities facing us all trapped in this sociocultural wasteland. Messenjah is still unquestionably the best Reggae band in the vast white north; I’m just watching and waiting for them to take a fresh, new direction. The Emperor is dead, and Mr. Macintosh snorts coke.

by Rob Clifton , Imprint staff Falco, the man who pioneered white rap music with his surprisingly infectious dance single “Der Kommissar” a few years back, has I-e-emerged from the Vienna music scene to reveal to us the.reaIity about himself we should have known all along. The man, in the long run, has little talent; at least not enough to do more than spring a few danceable singles on tis every so often. (Young Romans) is white “rap” music at its best, although Falco is one of the few white rappers (effectively reducing my compliment to absurdity due to lack of choice). The album was possibly the most frustrating piece of vinyl I’ve ever attempted to review. German, English and Italian--sometimes all in one song. He changes languages from verse to verse and even line to line. Some songs are in German. while one is all in English (which I still didn’t understand). You certainly can’t call this artistic unpredictability. I would call it an attempt (At conquering the North American and European markets s~muitn~~eously.

There are dance tunes on this album. Other than that, there’s simply nothing interesting here. Maybe Falco would be better off if he used his music for background sound tracks on T.J. Hooker chase scenes. If only there were a few wild sax solos or daring percussion combinations to put some life into this album. Speaking positively; with his looks and album cover presence, Falco may end up in GQ. He certainly plays the part. He says, “In my own mind; though I’ve been a star since I was born.” But maybe this is his problem. The man could be so “rapped” up in himself that he fails to realize that the best thins about this album is that it comes in chromium dioxide tapes.

What’s New in Waterloo?



by Paul Done The albums reviewed in this article represent the beginning of what hopefully, will become reasonably regular series of articles in which several older albums will be reviewed and recommended. These albums represent part of the roots of modern music which we now listen to. Cubar~ Fire by Stan Kenton and his orchestra and Shaft by Isaac Hayes form a large part of the roots of today’s dance music. The rhythmic and stylistic elements of both albums were transistion points in the music of their era and their influence can still be felt today. Cuban Fire was recorded and released in 1956. It ws the first time that authentic AfroCuban rhythms had been used in popular music. Up until this point rhythm had referred only to the metronome-like beat of the song. On this album the traditional creative process was reversed in that the rhythms were compiled and songs were written to fit the rhythms as opposed to the melody orrented process in universal use at the time. It is quite safe to say that without Cuban Fire, the groundwork of influences would never have existed for artists such as Pere Ubu, Peter Gabriel and Talking Heads to build upon. When the movie Shaft was released in1971, it represented a two-fold transistion for modern culture. The film itself was a landmark because is represented the first time that


music, which spawned first disco, then much of today’s jazz-funk dance music. It is said that “imithtion 1s . the sincerest form of flattery”; . if this is true, Isaac Hayes is , still being flattered by the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince and the Gap Band. He also provided one of the major Influences for such r’n’b based white artist as Robert Palmer, Section 25, John Hiatt and Joy Division.

First Quantas flight to Sydney and then hop on an ostrich and lope off into the jutback. My dissolute great-uncle Fred disappeared into Lstralia under suspect circumstances and thus is my magination provoked into picturing the country as such a nythic refuge. Fred, perhaps finding work on a remote sheep station, may iave turned into a character found in one of the 32 short stories .ollected in Australian Short Stories. The stories, selected by (erryn Goldsworthy, span more than one hundred years of Lstralian short fiction and range in style from Victorian to lost-modern. Ms. Goldswor+hy notes that previous colk?ctions Of 4ustraiian short fiction have stressed the “formula bush tale”, ales of sun-bronzed men roughing it in the bush -- the sort of tory Fred may have wandered into. In an attempt to redress this over-emphasis on formulaic iction, MS. Goldsworthy haschosen less typical stories; stories hat are more daring in form and stories which lack a distinctive Australian-ness”. “A Man of Accomplishment” and Frank Moorhouse’s Barbara Baynton’s “The Chosen Vessel”, for example, offer a listinct female perspective while Murray Bail’s

and Martin

by John L. I’racey Imprint staff Car! Keiner and Steve Martin have a comedy joining of the souls, and with their latest effort, Al/ ~/‘IVP, such a comment is e\zn more fitting. The movie. _\ou sec. is about the transmigration of’ souls. Too hea\ ,\ for htc\e Martin? Don’t kvorry. The film adaptation of Ed I>a\ iy , \Ic~ Too is anything but profound. Mr. Martin, who plays Roger (‘obh. ;1 thirty-eight year old law>,cr and part-time ja/, musician, shines throughout. Lily Tomlin keenly executes her role of rich but terminally ill socialite. T‘llrough Mr. Martin’s boss, the two meet on what is virtually her death-bed. On arrival, Mr. Martin discovers the fact that this woman is somewhat peculiar. In the codeci! which Mr. Martin is to draw up, the heiress outlines her desire to ha\se her soul replace that of one 01’ the serbant’s daughters. Ms. Tomlin is a follou~er of‘ an

fuse Eastern mystic, who ~111 .* perform the transmigration. Mr. Martin quite naturally tells the woman he think\ her mad. This excites the old girl, who requires <j\_\gcn to sta\e off an attack of‘ some sort. The sL;arni and a blind black jazz musician are excellent. One scene at the swami’s hotel suite IS particularly amusing. On discovering that he can flush the toilet b>, means of the handle, the phone rings. The swami believes there’s a cause-effect relationship here, so he flushes again. Of‘ course the phone rings again. Eccry time the phone rings, the misguided guru runs to the washroom. I hc ending is predictable. but the rest ol‘thc mokie is a blast. While not as deep as the Harold Pintcr play 1 saw Fridal at the -1 heatrc of‘thc Arts, this l‘lich is b> far more entertaining. I’d gilt it an X.5. See it il’_\ou’rc I‘ccling extra /an). You’l die laughing, and that’s t-call> a gra~c situation.

by Mike Upmalis Imprint staff There is an old football adage, some call it a myth that you use the running game to open up the defensc for the pass. Offenses like the Argo’s “run and shoot” and the Warrior’s “sprint’ offense turn it around to feature a primarily passing offense. The Windsor Lancers in a sound thrashing of the Warriors demonstrated that the old saw about running to prove the pass is true. The Warriors in a game that displayed little ofthc potential of their game in Ottawa lost to the Lancers by the score of 3 l-3 in Windsor last Saturday. Windsor won the game on the run in the first halfand the pass ’ in the second. Lancer fullbacks Rob Dalley and GinoCastellan (Castellan an OUAA all-star) were responsible for over 605; of the Windsor offense. Dalley ran for 94.yards and received for another 2 1, while CasteHan had combined yardage of 1’08 yards. Windsor’s total offense was 214 on the ground and 125 . through the air. What was interesting was that Lancer- QB Mistele attempted only nine passes in the first half completing three and threw another nine in the second half for a total record of 8 for 18.

Spoitsy week ~\ Paul Condon Sports Information Director The Athena field hockey team swung into action on the weekend with five games played in the.Statc of Michigan. In their annual excursion to the Michigan tournament, the Athenas are given the opportunity to face top notch talent early in the season. Most of the Athenas’ opponents are athletic for students who .have been practicing scholarship approximately one month. The Athenas have been working out for only one week. / In the five games that the Athenas played, they won two matches and lost three. The wins were over Western Michigan, 2- 1 and Western Illinois, 1-O. The losses were to Ohio, 1-2, Lake Forest, l-2 and Notre Dame 2-3. “We had to adjust to some differe,nt rules,” said Athena coach Judy McCrae. “For

. *

example, they remove the circle (the area from which goals you could score from must be scored). That meant anywhere on the field instead of trying to work the ball right into the goalmouth area. It makes for a different game. 1 was pleased with the play of our girls. We tried some new systems of play and they worked well. That was encouraging. We have a tough weekend coming up this weekend when we’ll be meeting Toronto, York and Laurentian.. Those will be very tough games, ” said McCrac.

Don ‘t despair, football Warriors! It is a long climb fi-om the basement to the top of the scoreboard. You may be having d@iculties at the moment, getting a firm footing over your opponents. But hang in there. Imprint is with you.




The soccer Warriors took three out of a possible four points this past weekend. After only a week and a half practice, they tied the Laurier Golden Hawks, a team which had been practicing for some time and which had played five games. The score was 1- 1. “While we played well, Laurier also played well,” said Warrior head coach, John Vincent. “Actually, we could have won the game when we had a penalty kick with just four minutes remaining in the game. Laim McFarlane, who scored our first goal on a penalty kick, missed one with four minutes- to


gc. 1 was very pleased with the play of our team in both of the games. If I could point out one player who supplied some inspiration and leadership, it would be Mark Forester. He scored our opening goal against Br0c.k on Sunday and in general played very well in both games” said coach Vincent. Other goal scorers in Sunday’s 4- 1 win over Brock were Cory Williams, Gary Cooper and Jim Gunn, all freshmen. That’s a very good sign when the freshman players play such a prominent role in a victory. Coach Vincent expressed satisfaction H’lfh his freshman goaltender Tim Walker. Coach Vincent went on to state that it seems to be a habit that the Warriors lost a player for the season in their first game of the, year. Last year, it was the Warriors All Canadian player Tom Abbot, this year it was/Scott Robinson who will be out for the year with a broken ankle. The soccer Warriors will host the University of Guelph this Saturday. That game will start at 1:OO p.m. and will be played on the soccer pitch on Columbia Field. Ihe football Warriors will host the York Yeomen on Saturday in Seagram Stadium. l’he game will start at 2:OO p.m. The Warriors will play their second home game the following week when they host the McMasder Marauders on Friday, September 28. That game will start at 7:00 p.m. In the recent ticket campaign, many U W staf‘f and faculty have taken advantage of the very reasonable offer ofa ticket for only $1 1.00. It’s still not too late to purchase a ticket good for admission to 37 events. Make your remittance payable to the UW Athlet,ic Department and send it to Paul Condon, PAC building and include your return address. One ticket application that pu/./.led the Athletic Department officials was one that came from Riverview, New Brunswick. That’s quite a distance to commute to see the Warriors in action. The Athlete of the Week selection will commence next week with the familiar Tuesday Luncheon to honour the athletes.

by John L. I‘racky Imprint staff This year’s Canada Cup has been both a triumph of the will and a stud> in contradiction. Canada has succeeded in the face of ad\,ersity, in restoring some pride in the f‘ruits of‘ OUI nation’s unof‘l‘icial sport. Running on a primitive ntxd to survi\,e, the highly c hargcd Canadian squad def‘eattzd the f‘avc)ured Sot iet platoon, a djnnasty unparalleled in the recent history of hockey, in what some are calling - the best hockey _ -game ever.

At the same time. consistency, other than on the part of‘ the Soviets, was almost non-existent. After disappointing ct‘f‘orts against the Americans and the Swedes, the home team pla>,ed inspired hockey in their overtime defeat of the Sot iets. Final111 co-ordinating their attack after borne sloppy showings, the Canadians showed the all around polish of which they are capable. An important part of the Canadian cl f‘ort against the Swedcs in the semi-f‘inal was Gretlky line. which the

accounted for a good deal of the of‘f’tznce generated in that contt’~t.

Also noteworthy was the seeming lack of‘ a pattern in results.

Sports Commentary

This week. in sports... I Last week in this space. I lambasted our gallant gridiron eroes (the football team) on the basis of one exhibition loss. or many I was Being a little too premature. Well, last Saturday they had the chance to prove me wrong. ‘he team went out and did the only thing they could, they lost hanks guys, for making my prediction come true and saving I ?y reputation. On a more positive note, the team may yet benefit4rom the xcelent new coaches they have (ex-CFLer Granny Liggins is ne) and they may learn to handle their new offence. But I doubt it. Enough on football. On Tuesday, September 18, I ran into Mark Haussman who ; head coach and chief bottle washer for the cross-country zam. He - passed, on to me the timely information that this iaturday the varsity cross-country teams are in Western for leir season opener. Both teams are looking forward to competing against their raditional rivals; Queen’s, Toronto, and Western. Also attendJg this meet will be several strong American schools including &chigan, Michigan State, North Carolina State and Penn. itate. Good luck guys and gals. If you are looking for some hot and heavy action this weekend the place to be is Columbia Field. On Saturday, the ugby team plays host to Western. The team is coming Off a :onvincing 32-O mauling of Laurier last Week. However, Western will be a completely different story. Rugby :oach Mark Harper was extremely happy with the opening ound victory but is hoping that the players do not .become overconfident. I As10 at Columbia Field will be the Athena Invitational Field -Iockey Tournament Waterloo is playing host to Toronto, York md Laurentian. Coach Judy McCrae predicts that this oumament will have the highest calibre of any that her team till play in before the league finals. The team has seven freshman and seven returning players. Last week, the team had a very good outing against several JmerIcal schools. For coach McCrae the goal for this weekend s to get the team playing the style that they have been practicng for the past two weeks. The Athenas first game is at the ridiculow hour of 9:30 Saturday mominG. The tournament runs all day but the Vhenas next game is Sunday morning at 9:30.

‘by Donald Duench Six weeks ago, the Calgary Stampeders went to Montreal to play the Concordes. There was nothing unusual about this CFL contest; unless you have your binoculars trained on the field, watching a pair of rookie quarterbacks. Warming up on the Montreal sideline was Turner Gill, the first-year phenom from Nebraska. Remember Gill? He took Nebraska to the Orange Bowl, where Miami broke the Cornhuskers’ 22game winning streak in a 3 l30 thriller. Gill would have also taken the Heisman if it weren’t for team-mate Mike Rozier, who won the award. But take a look at the Calgary bench, where the player wearing number 13 prepares for the game. Taking a, closer ‘ook through the binoculalrs reveals that his name’s \/ avra. Not niany folks entering the Big Owe that night would have known about Greg Vavra. He and his University of Calgary Dinosaur teammates sipped from the Vanier Cup after defeating Queen’s to win the Canadian college football championship last year. Vavra also won the Hec Creighton award as the

by Sandy Townsend Imprint staff Last Saturday, September 15, the Warriors served notice that they will be seeking a repeat of last season’s crown as they hammered the Laurier Golden Hawks 32-O.

The Warriors scored six tries while holding the oppobition scoreless. l‘he appreciative crowd, of around 250, pals treated to a wonderful afternoon of rugby at its finest. Warrior coach, Mark Harper, was especially pleased with the effort of his forwards, saying, “Paul l‘oon, Jim Shaw and Glen Harper all played very aggressively and provided the team with enough good quality possession for us to have scored 50 points”. The Warriors attacked Laurier right from the opening kickoff and never gave them a chance to become untracked. Stalwart prop forward Mark Allison, an OUAA allstar last season. played a particularly important role for the Warriors b) leading 111~‘~LLC~dn4, in fact, he scored the Warriors first points.

In the curtain raiser to the Warrior game, Waterloo’s second team, the l‘rojans, smashed their Laurier counterparts 23-O. The tone f‘or the game was set early on when second-row Tony Kay hit a Laurier player so hard it hurt not only him but his immediate family as well. Blair Clemes scored two tries to lead the l‘rojans with single tries being credited to Jeff Solly and Jon Sadler. F-ullback Steve Dulhanty kicked two conversions and one penalty goal to round out the l‘rojans scoring. l’omorrow, Waterloo meets the Western Mustangs at 2 o’clock at Columbia E‘ields. So bring a blanket, a friend, and somcthing warm, and help support Warrior rugby. -
