OFS head lists acc by Dave Sider Imprint staff Monika Turner, Chairperson of the Ontario Federation of Students, held a strategy planning meeting on Monday, October 1st. in the Graduate House with OFS fieldworkers, grad students and undergrads. Although the meeting was off the record, Ms. Turner was interviewed following the meeting. She was asked to explain exactly what the typical UW student was getting for his or her fee of $3 per year. In reply, a lendthy list of achievements was quickly expounded, which included the following: - OFS has regular meetings with lhe Minister of Colleges and Universities, Bette Stephenson, and her staff. - OFSclaims that its research is "impeccab1e"and backs this up by pointing out that its research is used by the provincial government and opposition parties to determine student concerns in Ontarlo. She mentioned tht UW's Federation of Students rehed "heavily" on OFS research when preparing its response to the Bovey Commission. - It was stressed that students unlfied under the banner of OFS could address concerns to audiences which would be inaccessible under normal circumstances to individual students. An example given was that OFS representatives have met with the Premier of Ontario, Bill Davis, and have briefed him regarding student interests. - Ms. Turner also mentioned that as evidence of the effectiveness of this government lobbying, the Treasurer of Ontario, Larry Grossman, expressed his desire in iivolving OFS in his annual budget preparation. She pointed out that In this role of consultation, OFS would be -proposing improvements to summer employment programsand increased opportunity for ca-ap students. A further compliment was midfo OFS researchingwhen the members of,the Bovey Commission told Ms. Turner and her colleagues that tlrei'brief was the "best reggprchrtl presdntation they had encountelred in their cross-province hearings." discussed duriag the interview was the AB~UI~E deflmai of 19&2's-air" 40% increase in tuition fees for visa students. In a connected move, OFS successfully lobbied the Ministry . . " into discontinuing further increases in graduate visa tu~ttonfees.

- Successfully mounting a campaign agalnst the "closed" meetlngs of the Borey Commission, OFS brought about open public hearings about the future of Ontario students. Ms. Turner added that Dr. Stephenson verfied, in the provincial legislature, the key role that OFS played in this decision. The result was the OFS and Waterloo's Federation of Students were able to present briefs to the commission which stated student concerns. - Continuing this list of achievements, Ms. Turner expressed her satisfaction that OFS, working with the national student movement, CFS, has been able to achieve results at the federal level. - Federal successes clalmed, included the $170 million Increase over the past two years in summer job creation programs for students. In addition, OFSICFS brought about changes in the Federal student aid plan last year. The changes included the increase of loan limits, the extension of the repayment per~odand the inclusion of part-time students. - For students in residence, said Ms. Turner, OFS has special significance. OFS was the pressure group responsible for placing guidelines on increases in residence fees. Ms. Turner concluded the interview by stating that OFS's credibility has never been so high. She proudly referred to the fact that she has been invited to adiiress the Ontario Economic Council in a'keynote panel speech. This, the cha~rpersonsaid, was "a first for OFS in terms of prestige". The central thrust of OFS's referendum program will be t o convince the students of Waterloo that $1.50 a termperstudent is a bargain when one considers what OFS has to offer. Although the Federation is advocatmg an OFS pullout, the Federation of Student Handbook praises OFS. A brtef excerpt follows: "During the first decade of its existence, CFS/OFS earned the recognition of government and educuti n authorities as the voice of students m Ontario. Today, a u n i e d nationalstudent voice is important to Ontario role now played by the federal affsirs. Over the next decade, the need for a organization like CFS/OFS to deal wlth theconcernsof post-shndary students will be even greater." - ,* -8

Any woman can “make it” by Signy Madden Imprint staff At a recent Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) meeting, Jenny Theirs of Proctor and Gamble, Belleville, proposed an alternative to feminist views on discrimination. Ms. Theirs, a graduate in engineering, drew upon her experiences in management to illustrate at the September 27th meeting how to cope in a “man’s world”. Her message was that as she had made it in the business world, any woman could do the same. Discrimination against women exists, Ms. Theirs acknowledged, but this is only because “men were in the workplace first.” Ms. Theirs’s advice to deal with this discrimination is not to “kick and fuss as most feminists do, but tojust live with it.” Learn the mores and rules of the male culture, Ms. Theirs recommended, and live within them. Coping with teasing and joking from male subordinates and putting forth extra initiative are all part of Ms. Theirs’s way of adapting. “You can’t” Ms. Theirs’s emphasized, “force men to change their attitudes towards women. That is why Affirmative Action programs have a negative result.” Ms. Theirs believes that the absence of large numbers of women in science-related careers stems from the socializing of young girls to shun or fear math and science studies in school. Thus, she said, the problem is not at the hiring level. On the subject of sexual harassment, Ms. Theirs said: “If you’re professional enough you will not find sexual harassment. Women must take extra care with their appearance

During the discussion period which followed Ms. Theirs’s speech, members of the audience both men and women questioned her non-interventionist views and her advice to passively “grow a thick skin” against discrimination. Ms. Theirs responded by saying she did not think the problem of discrimination was an excuse to practice irrationality by having reverse discrimination. “If a company wishes to hire all men,” Ms. Theirs stressed, “they should be allowed to do so.” When one member of the audience pointed out that this would go against the Ontario Human Rights Code, Ms. Theirs replied, “1 don’t believe that governments have a right to interfere with c,ompanies...for this reason, 1 disagree with the Human Rights Code.” In conclusion, Ms. Theirs predicted that there will be a natural increase of women in professions without government intervention. “Those women who are competent in their field, have confidence in themselves, and carefully plan their career, will quickly advance”.

by Patrick Hayes Imprint staff “Pretty young ladies sitting in front of a consul like a typewriter, could fight a nuclear war without hating anyone!“, said Professor Anatol Rapaport. “1 did not say nuclear weapons would lead to a final holocaust. What I am saying is that (they) might! Use of violence is wrong!” Professor Rapaport, of University College, Toronto, was one of 25 speakers to address the Waterloo Conference of Philosophy and Nuclear Arms, September 28 through the 30th. The conference was an academic exercise, not open to the public, and addressed the concepts of logic and morality in the nuclear age. It was organized by Professor Jan Narveson (U of W Philosophy Department) and was hosted by the University of Waterloo, in conjunction with Conrad Grebel College and Wilfrid Laurier University. Professor Rapaport’s argument was the most basic, but set the stage for what was to follow. Professor Dave Gauthier of Pittsburg, took a more cautious approach when he explained that it is desirable to get from “‘threat structures” to “trade structures”. “But,” he said, “I am not convinced we can use a love concept in an operational concept .” “To disafm,” he said, “would be for mutual benefit. But we
cannot get from threat to trade simply by throwing away threats. “The point should be,” said professor Conrad Brunk, “to extricate ourselves from the deterrence situation.” Professor Brunk, chairman of the Peace and Conflict Studies department of Conrad Grebel College, based his argument on the current theory of excalation dominance,dbr the perception that, “one side could be better off than the other,” given more choices of action. “The Soviets adopt the same type of policy of escalation dominance,” he said, “not Marxist theory, causing a mad rush to achieve nuclear dominance. We are caught in a Hobbesian dilemma.” Professor Russel Hardin, from Chicago, said the “reciprocity” of counterforce weapons (those weapons used to knock out an opponent’s weapons systems, leadership, command and control targets) is the worst concept, adding, “Strategists don’t know any better; philosophers should know better!” In conclusion, Professor William Seager, of ‘Toronto, drew the analogy between the world community and the two f‘ueding families of the Hatfields and the McCoys, who live in a small town. Both families hate the capacity and the will to destroy the tow 11 . given the provocation.
by Hikka McCaIILma imprint staff -‘They sal culback, we say fight back!” was the rallying cr) of students marching in front of the Board of Education at Wellesley and Bay St. in Toronto. The), were there on FridaJz. September 28th to protest the Bovey Commission. The march, organised by the Guelph Central Students Association (CSA), was held in conjunction with the last day of the public hearings of the Commission. John King, CSA president, estimated there was a turnout of 200 people. Over 150 of those were from Guelph University because Guelph had given the march much publicity, with speeches and posters on campus. Specifically, the aim of the Bovey Commission is to trim faculties, programs and staff, and to raise the academic entrance standards.

A third Guelph student, Nancy Morrow, felt that there should be “equal access to universities regardless of wealth.” Jim Ryan, CSA VicePresident External at Guelph, said that “funding should be maintained” because there are too many courses restricted by quota. According to Mr. Ryan the ministry should not cut OSAP loans because many families that are above the $10,000 earning bracket are still unable to finance their offspring(s) education.

by John L. Tracey Imprint staff A potentially heated issue has once again surfaced on campus: alleged underfunding and underpayment. At a meeting of the Board of Governors, U W president. Douglas Wright said that UW faculty “are underpaid”. Faculty association president Bob Needham augmented this claim in a separate interview. When reached for comment, Dr. Wright was hesitant to discuss the issue at length. He did say that he felt an the board underacross payment of faculty members existed. The earnings of the faculty, Dr. Wright conceded, had “slipped”. Work loads have increased during the last few years by a substantial degree, he added. When pressed for more detail, Dr. Wright declined. Bob Needham was quick to point out his agreement with rhe University’s president.

“‘irritates me to IJO end. because classroom speaking and posters cannot explain the whole issue”. He urged the student bodies to publicly denounce the commission.
Peter Klungel Chairperson of the Board of External Liaison at UW responded by saying that the Federation of Students did not publicize the event because it believes in “lobbying behind the scenes”. A public demonstration would be “a waste of time, effort and money that could be used in better ways”. Mr. Klungel felt that most U W students wouldn’t be interested in “trekking down to Toronto because radical protests never get anything done.”

Those eligible to vote include all undergraduate students who hate not received a $2.50 per term refund or graduate students and communit>r members who have paid a $5.00 annual lee. Here are a few points to consider when casting j’our ballot for WPlRG board members. * All directors are expected to actively represent W’PlRG on campus. The board of directors is the student leadership of W PI RG: * There are no set rules outlining exact]), what a WPiRG director can do. Most important to consider is that members 01 the board share a strong social and environmental conscience; * Lastly, the board along with the staff decide which speakers, films, and projects will be sponsored. and how WPI RG money will be spent.

percent fron I97 1. He recommended an across the board raise of thirty percent for the faculty, citing similar inequities in pay for faculty ranks other than associate professor. If one compares professors with any other professional groups, Prof. Needham continued, it is obvious that no other group has taken such a reduction in pay over such a period of time. Professor Needham cites student-teacher ratios as another indication ofjust how unfair this disparity is. These ratios, he said, show how the work load of the faculty has increased. Waterloo’s ratio, in the order of 23: 1, is “higher, I
think, than all (other) universities in Canada”. If one understands that this situation means that more work is being done for less money, Prof. Needham said, then the injustice is clarified. Professor Needham asserted his desire to continue to work towards rectifying the situation by means of the Faculty Salary Steering Committee. While saying that provincial underfunding was partly to blame for this problem, Prof. Needham also accused the administration of the University of using money on other projects, neglecting salaries.

Ydu should not neglect agitation; each of you should - /Ferdinand Lasalle (1825-l 864)
The free lunch is over. The ramifications of overusing stimulative spending are finally being understood by the masses. Or should I say “reunderstood”? After all, it is not a new idea that the best way to help an economy grow would be to let it free. What is new is our tolerance of those who attack the social networks of the world. The concept of pulling our own weight has again come into vogue. Hopefully, it will be more than a fashion. The acceptance of supply-side economics, behind the smoke and mirrors of an overtly ambitious Jack Kemp and his rhetoric, is the watershed of a new era. The recent recession, which really was in sectors, a depression, and others merely a downturn, forced thexorld’s economic and financial institutions to reevaluate the assumptions about stimulative spending. In Canada, the delegates of the Progressive Conservative and Liberal parties overwhelmingly demonstrated the rejection of both substantive and conceptual links with the heydey spending increases of the 1960’s and ‘70’s. John Turner sold himself as a practical Grit, though he was partly responsible for the increase in the federal deficit’s ballooning. From a meagre five per cent, the deficit has swollen to an enormous percentage of the gross national product well over twenty per cent. Much of that, gleeful Tories will
inform you, occured or was set in motion under John Napier Turner. Likewise, Brian Mulroney, the man who lost to Joe Clark because of his ties to Conrad Black and Paul Desmarais during his first bid for the Tory leadership, was perceived as being a man with the solid business experience, with respect to both labour and executive concerns. The list could go on indefinitely. Fiscal conservatives have ta’ken the reigns of power in the U.K., the U.S.A., the Netherlands, West Germany, and in Sweden (though the Social Democrats have since re-established their dynasty). A poll, the results of which were published in the Globe and Mail (Sept. 19, ‘84), showed that over eighty-five per cent of Canadians favoured the end of universality so that the federal deficit could be lowered. The election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 and his likely re-election this year - leads in 41 of 50 states according to a recent poll - show that the voters of that nation reject both the sprees of the past and the more frugal alternatives. The notion that we will be more responsible with our resources if we more directly bear the brunt of our mistakes is not a new one. However, people now are beginning to comprehend the effects of the communal credit card.
A self-destructive How many more embarrassing situations can Tom Allison get himself into before he politically self-destructs? The past few months must have proved to Mr. Allison that when one tries to serve too many people at once it is virtually impossible to serve them well. During the month of August, Mr. Allison was organizing the Ontario Liberal speakers’ tour for the federal election, Treasurer elect for the Ontario Federation of Students, and, of course, President of the Federation of Students at the University of Waterloo. The performance of the Liberal party in Ontario at the polls was nothing short of a disaster. It would be ridiculous to blame Mr. Allison for the demise of the Liberal party, but, with his other responsibilities, how stellar could his performance have been for the Grit campaign? August is historically a slow month for student unions, as it is usually the calm before the storm of September registration.

Mr. Allison missed 16 working days during the month of August. While he was in th-e office most evenings, much of his time was spent in preparation

president for the new Federation Hall. His input in the Federation’s response to Bovey ‘must have been limited. And then there’s the Ontario Federation of Students. Mr. Allison is now heading a campaign to withdraw the University of Waterloo Students from the OFS. His argument is a straightforward one, he simply stated that the OFS is not worth $40,000 to UW students. Anything else he has said on the issue has come mainly in the form of rhetoric, nothing of substance. It is going to take some smooth talking by Mr. Allison to explain the short-comings of the OFS while attempting to absolve himself of any guilt on the issue. Monika Turner, chairperson of OFS, has stated that Mr. Allison “did not function” as treasurer, and that he made a scant two out of eight executive meetings over the summer. Jim Ryan, of the Guelph Students Association, has gone a little further, saying that Mr. Allison “may be a little embarrassed with the OFS because he wasn’t doing his job as treasurer”. So, could you please tell us, Mr. Allison, if you were so busy’aduring !he past few months, why wait until now to resign as treasurer of OFS? And could you also tell us, if the OFS is not worth $40,000, how much are you to blame for this? t:url

‘Upin Arms.: < . -Evervbodv knouk....w \ i’m not prejudiced
Prejudice is a heavy topic. You’re afraid I’m going to . harangue you with stories about Nazis and Jerry Falwell and the Ku Klux Klan. I’m not though, because you’ll just dismiss them as examples.of extremist crackpots. You can spot the obvi ous big o ts as well as I can, and then you’ll rest comfortably, knowing you’re not like them. Well, 1 won’t let you off so easily. . I wasn’t prejudiced against gay people. After all, I had a lesbian friend and a gay friend, and I knew they ,were perfectly okay people. Yes, my two friends were okay, but I wasn’t willing to give up my preconceptions about all the other millions of gay men and lesbians. And because I know only those two, whatever faults they had were obviously faults common to all gay men and lesbians. (Everyone knows we’re all alike.) There was a teenage genius who was in the newspapers , a few years ago, a strange guy, played Dungeons and 1Dragons compulsively, got himself kidnanped.... Anyway, I remember reading in one news story ‘that he was a member of a campus gay liberation organization, but, I though,he probably wasn’t gay, he was probably just a straight liberal that wanted to support a good cause. And +hen some time later 1read he had committed suicide, so maybe he was gay after all... What does this story mean? Gay liberation was a “good cause” (I was straight back then, remember), but it stretched my imagination too far to think that the members of a gay liberation org+zation were actually gay., It was as if I didn’t believe that real gay people existed at all. But they do. We do. And anybody could be one of us. Anybody! The- butcher, the baker, anybody! Your lifeguard, your Member of Parliament, y&r sister, your calculus
The tragic thing for me was the way suicide was linked with being gay. i believed that gay people inevitably led miserable lives, and when I eventually came to realize that I was gay, I feared that I too would be doomed to unhappiness. Well that just ain’t so! Our lives have the same potential for love, friendship, happiness and fulfilment as anyone’s. If you don’t believe me, I’m curious whether it’s because you’ve read a book called Everything
you always wanted to know about sex, but were afraid to &k. I can’t judge the rest of the book, but the chapter on homosexu&y distortions
is one of the vilest collections that I’ve ever read. Prejudices
of lies and
from nowhere, and I know many of mine were grown in the BS on those pages. If you’ve read the book, find a copy and read it again, constantly keeping in mind that the good doctor knows f***-all about our real lives. I hope that by these examples from my own life I’ve
illustrated that prejudice isn’t always blatant bigotry like “Kill all queers !“&lsually it’s much more subtle; though no less dangerous.
Be on guard.
byA.d.Wa&m-man Any’ popular movement of protest ends inevitably as an activity paying ‘lip service’ to freedom. blast pre-eminent among those currently is the peace movement; a movement whose very make-up consists of insidious midd,le-class busying themselves with what they perceive as a personal threat to property, and committing action (i.e. demonstration) as is the vogue of the time. This undermines tie validity of intent in such movement%, replacing the substance and meaning with a fashionability of ideology beautifully e,xpressed in the mindless attitudes;
_slogans, and catch-all phrases. It is furthered in meaninglessness by the conspicuous presence and divided nature of particular interest groups, whose interests are at best scatalogical. Any thrust toward influencing the major institutions is thwarted by the very act of institutionalising such movements. The cnty of the matter rests in how the authority structures manage to invite an over subjectification (empty bias) on the part of movements, thuds undermining the focus of attention away from its critical responsibility. To put it simply, it is the blind leading the blind.
Ingram ired or opposed? . To the editor: ,Mathew Ingram’s article “Ludicrous liberation” in the: September 21 issue of imprint was so inaccurate that there are’ only two explanations for it: I) Ingram was so upset by the idea: of enforcing equal treatment of women and, men that he became I unable to hear or think, 2) Ingram is.%*opposed to the idea of equal opportunity that he felt justified in misquoting Dr. Anne Dagg. I have a copy of Dagg’s brief to the Bovey com’mission, the subject of Ingram’s article, in front of me as I write. Nowhere does Dagg suggest “a program that would guarantee women 50% of all university positions,” 1 am quoting from Ingram’s article here. What Dagg did suggest was that nonsexist hiring practices be enforced so that “benefits do not go to students and faculty because they are men rather than women.” 1 suspect, and Ingram obviously fears, that this would result in SOa/, of university positions going to women. Dagg’s suggestion that an autonomous Women’s College be used as an interim measure to provide a “centre of excellence for women’s studies for the entire province” was based on her recognition that most of the teaching and research in the current university system ignores women, or worse, results in an inaccurate, stereotyped view of our lives and concerns. It is debatable whether we (women) should spend our time working within and changing this system or whether we should push for space where we can get on with our ‘work unobstructed. The background information needed to debate this issue is available in the women’s studies department at U of W. It is obvious that Ingram did not do his homework as he simply dismisses the idea of a women’s college as reactionary. Women support the university system through taxes as men do, we do not receive equal benefits from it. Ignoring this problem, as Ingram does, is reactionary. Imprint is not doing the university community a service when it publishes articles consisting of misquotes and,poorly thought out, unsupported opinions. Judith Johnson d HKlLS Editor S rep/y: Dear Ms. Johnson, no matter what objections you may have to Mr. Ingram’s soqpbox article regarding Dr. Dagg’s suggestions for improving the representation of women in university faculties, the last paragraph.of your letter suggests a misunderstanding of the role of Imprint and, specifically, the function ofsoapbox. Imprint is committed to promoting thoughtful discussion and debate within these pages; therefore, individual staff members are permitted to comment on matters that interest them, independent of the rest of the staff, in soapbox. The views they express are their o-&n. It is wrong to confuse soapbox material with the newspaper’s editorials.
by Shayla Gunter Imprint staff They say it is actually better than last year. “They” being the older, more experienced students from the second, third and fourth years. 1 can’t believe they are telling the truth. They can’t be. If they are, well, 1 pity and admire them for living through last year. Actually, I am exaggerating. I must admit, 1 thought the.food would be worse. It could be. There is room for regression, but there is more room for improvement. Take last week’s dinner for instance. On the other hand, maybe you had better not take it, because 1 did, and for three days lived in the washroom. It’s not that the food tasted terrible, it’s just that the people in the kitchen like toying with our taste buds. The potatoes which were supposed to be slightly bland were really very spicy, and the rice was supposed to be drained bejbre it was served. Oh yah, 1 have to phone my mom and tell her that I actually like it when she makes broccoli now that I’ve had the “mock broc” , here. I suggest that we all go out to eat at least once or twice a week, jusi to regulate our stomachs! One thing that amazes me is the fact that some guys don’t seem to care what they are eating. Let’s face it, when they are hungry, they eat anything that is put on a plate in front of them. The other day, we were having a macaroni casserole (?) and the guy next to me ate EVERYTHING on his plate plus five (count them - 5!) glasses of milk, one chocolate included! 1 guess he is what my dear old mom would call “a growing boy.” I’ve also noticed that many of the foods served have minds of their own. They are possessed! Example: 1) The oranges do not let you peel them. 2) The muffins are dry so that you won’t swallow them. 3) In Village One, theDiet Coke nozzle makes sure your hand and tray get covered in sticky brown stuff before you can fill< up your glass. As for dining companions, the. lunch and dinner people are fine; but just try getting the attention of someone in the morning. EVERYONE IS A ZOMBIE!!!! I’ve had better conversations with myRice K:ispies! Well, this is your campus food critic signing off for the time being. Eat hearty! 1
P Technocracv amok d
by John L. Tracey . Imprint staff In the past few years, the robots have descended in ‘large numbers upon Waterloo. This small centre has taken on awesomely large responsibility of creating, or perhaps manufacturing, the elite technocrats, who will control tomorrow’s Information Order. With religious zeal, the technoguppies enter the intellectual spawning ground, readily casting aside the classics and instead adhering their grey matter to Cobol primers and Calculus texts. In this transformation, a fundamental question arises: are universities a means of passing down wisdom, or a ’ means of meeting the needs of the job market? On a large plane, it is crucial that society examines the sociological effects of having students who can’t quote Hamlet, Freud, or the Bible. What will happen to an already decaying moral safety net with students who do not possess a rudimentary understanding of the Juedeo-Christian heritage or the principles of the basic belief in the dignity and worth of .the human being, outlined in the more important documents of Western civilization? What type of mercenaries will we create in the pursuit of an adequately staffed work force? Indeed, the destruction of capitalism, a system meant to be helped by this form of education, could be the ultimate result of such a system. These budding - technocrats will possess the New Capital: information. If they, at the same time, have no scruples or moral framework, the selling of their neurons to the highest bidder is possible, regardless of the political or moral affiliation of the buyer. It is very disturbing indeed, this “Brave New World”. In personal terms, the ramifications are vast and profound. Do we have the right to alter society’s direction in such a radical fashion? If we assume that we do, is it right to have an arrogantly ‘youthful power structure? Many of the outsiders to the university look upon it as an “ivory tower”, devoid of heart and soul. It’s architecture proclaims its morality. The monolithic towers of academe sneer at the peasants. Its use of identification numbers, codes, and inspections gives it the aura of an Orwellian locale. 1 Do ordinary people welcome such a future‘? No, they dread its suppression of the individual. It saps the lifeblood from them, turning their hearts ashen grey, and makes them look longingly at the cold, hard earth below their apartments. Beware of falling people. With the advent of this glorious new revolution has come a dramatic upheaval in the role of elders in society. When the author was a mere five years old, he noticed the thrill which his grandfather had in relaying the secrets of paper airplanes and circular kites. He noticed the satisfaction the old man had in talking of the moon walks and the dynamic 1960’s. This pleasure, a pleasure for both the donator and recipient of these experiences, must never be destroyed. To cast ,aside the -elderly because the young are technical wizards is not only cruel to the already aged; it enshrines in us all the idea that we serve The Machine, our God. The Machine was created to serve us, and not out lives to better the Existing Order. We must win back our control.

To the editor: David LeReverend: 1 think I can understand your reaction of anger because you felt excluded from the “Take Back the Night” maryh. There is always the datiger and expectation, that some men will feel steryo typed as one of thobe ‘bad men who do mean things to women’. My son was not excluded for the simple reason that not all mothers can afford to leave their children while they pursue their own interests, requirements, or desires. He did not feel that our songs and slogans were directed at all men, and consequently himself, by association. Sometimes women need to get together. 1 suspect that most men would have felt a little uncomfortable had they come along. In any case, they may have had ‘more important’ things to do. The
The Right ,to Life McCallurn
The fashionable topic for debate these days seems to be abortion. There are many people opposed to abortion that don’t really understand ‘the issues at stake. Many eople opposed to any form of birth I control believe that the Pertilized egg has a “right to lif?“. This would be a perfect argument for no birth control whatsoever, except that excludes the most important person, the mother. More than anyone else, I think the mother has a right to life and liberty. As Margaret Sanger said back in 1917, “The problem of birth control has arisen directly from the effort of the feminine spirit to free itself from bondage.” The bondage she was talking about was the inability to choose when to have a child. The popular saying in the early 1900’s was “you want your cake while you eat it too, it can’t be done”. But because of this self-righteous attitude that doctors helped perpetuate there were many women who died bef&e they were 30. Their lives were sacrificed because of ignorance of birth control methods. Not only poor women died. Every class of women went to the five-dollar abortionists. The abortion was usually painful and

Stand Up... Be A Woman! by Hilkka
the hemhorraging lasted up to a month afterward. Why did these women go through all that pain and possible death? Margaret Sanger eloquently makes the point that, “A free race cannot be born of slave mothers.” Every mother who had an abortion wanted her freedom of choice. It is not the custom of the North American socie ties to abstain from sexual activity. But why should people have to abstain if there are safe;reasonable methods of contraception? Nowadays pro-life groups can get so hot-under-the-collar because the living conditions of mothers have generally improved. These groups probably feel that since parents can afford to have more children they should not use contraception. We must remember that the reason life is better for women, and the death rate among mothers had considerably decreased is birth control. Margaret Sanger managed to “awaken the womanhood of America to free the motherhood of the world” (her own words). She felt that women should have the only say regarding contraception and abortion because their personal freedom and their bodies were the only elements to consider. “It is a woman’s duty as well as her privilege to lay hold of the means of freedom”. - Margaret Sanger. Women have the right to life as well.
men who were yelling not so nice remarks seemed to think we made a big deal about very .little. Most men do not have to deal with bypassing a park area, etc. at night. Although you can sympathize, perhaps stay home and read some feminist literature (with an open mind), do child-care duty, or give free lessons in self-defence; it is not necessary for you to join the women all the time, in all their causes. My own feeling from the march was a feeling of camaraderie and support. You needn’t feel left out or stereo-typed because you weren’t invited. Many women have been left out of many events for a long time now. We do not hold you personally responsible for all the wrongs done to various women over time -just don’t feel so left out when we choose to do something by ourselves. D. Leclair
Remembering a queerly ironic summer
Pamphlet supports women
Looking back, I would say that this past summer was one of many ironies. Often, I was taken aback by the queer circumstances that went on over those warmer months, even though 1 often felt I was the only one in the world that cared, or even noticed. When Ronald Reagan went to China to renew his country’s friendship with an atheistic government that censors all aspects of the media, demands political and social conformity, and advocates abortion as a method of birth control, I thought about Jerry Falwell and laughed. But when Ron got on television a week later and condemned the Communists in Central America as being opposed to freedom and called them the protagonists of “anarchy and chaos”, I was amazed. In spite of my awe ,over this ideological double talk, 1 saw no evidence that the press had made note of this laughable contradiction of rhetoric. Later on, 1 saw that the fresh-faced symbol of middle class respectability, Miss America, Vanessa Williams, was found to have modelled with another woman in some very unrespectable pornographic material. To me, the message was-clear: 1 had
often heard from those involved in the feminist movement that beauty contest sponsors and pornographers are guilty of the same sins. Both are guilty of parading women about as commodities, both put pressure on women to conform and submit to a certain set of standards (often set by men), in order to be considered attractive, and both lie about the true beauty oj’ womanhood. The only dljfkrence is that one is cloaked in an air of decency and the other is more blatantly sexual. However, this valuable lesson of life escaped the press, as far as 1 could see. In my own neighborhood, the recently dkfeated Liberal incumbent Al McBain was charged with sexual harrasmen by the human rights commission. The plaintiff was awarded $1,500 but had to face $23,000 in legal fees. The case will now be sent to an appeals court, and McBain will no doubt withhold paying his fine until that decision is made. Although the event received much media coverage, the press failed to note the increasing incredulity of our government in the eyes of the people, or the inability of our legal system to effectively vindicate the victims of injustice. Andy Hiebert
To the editor: In rcpl), to David Le Reverend: As J’OU stated in your letter: “the constant protection of women by men...isn’t going to help in the long run.” This is the main reason for women to participate with other women as a group td’l’ake Back the Night “- w’ithout the help of men. When you csco r-t women home, you help by protecting individual women about whom you care. This is a start, but it does little to educate women or the majority of‘ men. When you say you feel angry and ofl‘?ndcd by being asked to
stay home this one night, think how much more angry and offended you would be if this were simply the everyday reality 01’ your life inforced by !-ear of physical abuse. Staying home during the march is meant to be a consciousness raising exercise as well as an expression of solidarity with women. As you realise: “staying home isn’t enough”, perhaps the pamphlet produced by a group of men in Vancouver will help give you an idea of one of the ways in which men come together to support women.

by C, Otis Slug (a pseudonym) Imprint staff Recently, the Toronto Stur printed an expose reprinted from the Miami Herald. concerning the drug trade through the Bahamas. However, the Canadian citizen still remains intensely urnnformed about the drug trade in Canada. For whatever reason, news of the current biker war --- and like events - have not been well covered by the media. The police are alInost as secretive about criminal operations as are the various smugglers and pushers, and the national press seems helpless to report the linkages involved. Therefore,onc has to rely upon underground sources for information. ‘There are four different groups bringing drugs into the country: organized crime. motorcycle gangs, diplomats, and general free-lancers. Organized crime can be broken down in many ways. There are the various ethnic gangs, including Italian, Jewish. Chinese, L’ietn amese. lrish. etc., etc. These groups are Involved in the 6ard drug trade, including cocaine and heroin. Supplies are wrought through various European and Asian centres and are ;muggied through air and sea ports. The sheer volume of traffic .hrough these ports guarantees that most shipments will get .hrough. While still in use, the personal courier, or “mule”, carrying he drugs through customs, encounters drug sniffing dogs. and, f warranted, body searches, and medical inspections if 2robable cause exists.

Ontario, especially in hashish and pot. Motorcycle gangs play a large role in the distribution of including speed, barbituates, uppers, PCP, etc. “chemicals”. They also carry out enforcement and loan sharking duties. Currently, gangs from the United States and other Canadian provinces are pressuring the still independent Ontario gangs to join a continental syndicate. The struggle continues between these two groups. with corpses and shootings popping up all over Ontario and Quebec. For instance, a Toronto club past president was arrested recently with a cache of weapons in his r apartment. Diplomats add to then- personal fortunes, and to those of their accomplices, by importing large quantities of drugs via diplomatic pouch. Some of these funds are used for arms in diplomatic pouches, Lebanon and Afghanistan. Because which can be any size, are covered b>. diplomatic immunity, they are not searched. Until the Toronto drug busts. two years ago, much of the city’s blonde hash supply came from Ottawa. This drug input has slowed distribution lately, because of those busts, and because of certain foreign nationals without diplomatic immunity, who were arrested and charged in Ottawa. The fourth group involved are general free-lancers. This group has a wide ranging membership, from the student smuggling hash from Morrocco to professionals moving drugs across isolated border points in boats, cars, on horseback, and on foot. Tourists back from the Caribbean bring home ganja, either openly or by suallowing balloons (drugs are put in condoms and sw,allowed).

Students beware by <Chris Wodskou Imprint staff How many of you can actually rememberlearning anything of a practical nature concerning university M bile in Grade 13? Most of LIS had teachers who warned LIS about exams, ail-nighters, and drunken binges and residence debauchery. but few ever told us about w/hat aImo3t all of us hav,e to deal with s:)me time during our Ltili~CI’Slt\ careers. namely off-campus living. T hc f‘act is that landlords know that they have the upper hand when it comes to student tenants and they knou how to exploit this to their advantage. K-W has one of the highest student total population ratios in the country and this situation is especially severe in Waterloo where the vacancy rate is something like 0.3c/c.

by Stephen Motluck Imprint staff CUSO, Canada’s largest non-government service agency, has changed its official title but is still carrying on business-as always. CUSO is a Canadian based overseas development agency which seeks to place qualified teachers and technical personnel in underdeveloped countries for assistance. An information meeting for interested applicants was held recently on campus. Susan Isaac, information officer for CUSO’s U W office, says that the number of applicants this year is consistent with that of other years. On average, the U W office accepts approximately IO-12 people for overseas placement each year. Ms. Isaac also explained that the name change from Canadian University to simply CUSO should clear up Service Overseas misconceptions of CUSO being an organization of students. This is not the case, explains Isaac. Only those with a university degree or extensive technical experience are accepted for CUSO positions. These people include a variety of types including recent university graduates and those with work experience. The average age of CUSO recruits is approximately 35, with the youngest generally in their early 20’s but also including some from the over age 40 group. In the late ‘60s and early ‘7Os, most of the recruits had a BA in English or History and perhaps teaching experience. However, today, even though these people are still needed, those with technical backgrounds are coming more to the forefront. From U W, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and Civil Engineering graduates have found a place with CUSO. One UW CS graduate was placed last year with the Nigerian Ministry of Agriculture where a system for collecting agricultural statistics is being developed. The destination of recruits varies with the type of job, says Isaac. Teachers are still in the highestdemandwith the largest project involving 150 in Nigeria. Other destinations include Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and countries in southern Africa. Knowledge of a foreign language is not a necessity, as many of CUSO’s host countries use English as the official language in education and business. However, for those destined for South East Asia, an intensive course in the local language is given. Of
course, Ms. Isaac says, it is a great asset if one does have a foreign language. There is a 2 year minimum contract for CUSO recruits, says Ms. Isaac. Wages are paid by the overseas employer and are commensurate with wage rates prevalent in the host country. Ms. Isaac says the average rate is approximately $5,000-$10,000 per year. However, comments Isaac, one must take into consideration the fact that all travel costs as well as lodgings are
paid for. In addition. the cost of living in many host countries is different than Canada. Many candidates career decisions change after overseas service, says Ms. Isaac. This is especially true of younger overseas workers. Many pursue graduate degrees when they return. In any event, say’s Ms. Isaac, “It takes a special person to go overseas.” CUSO’s U W office is located in Needles Hall. rom 2081.
w Tory ‘%rtderdog” by Leanne Burkholder Imprint staff Lynne Woolstencroft, school trustee and former chairman of the Waterloo County ,Board of Education, won an uncontested nomination as the official Progressive Conservative candidate for the provincial riding of Waterloo North last Tuesday, September 25th. Mrs. Woolstencroft told the Tory audience of approximately 200 (including student supporters from UW and WLU) that she has a tough campaign battle ahead as the “underdog” against Liberal incumbent Herb Epp. However, she believes she will win with the help of Tory riding members. She promised to work hard for the needs of Waterloo North and the make herself well-known to its constituents. She is
committed to working in the areas 01‘ social policy, agriculture, economic growth and education. Amongst the Conservatives gathered for Mrs. Woolstencroft’s nomination ‘A/ere her husband, Peter W’oolstencroft, Presiden; of the Waterloo Federal Conscrvativc Riding; Jeanne Foster. third vice-president of’ the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party; and the Honourable Frank Drea. Minister of‘ Community and Social Services.

ur cash flows out by Stephanie Piehl Imprint staff If you are looking for somewhere to invest your money, Canada is not the place, according to economist Andrew Sarlos. Mr. Sarlos is a graduate of the University of Budapest, has his own chartered accounting company (SarlosZuckerman), and is currently a member of UW’s Board of Governors. In his address to the Alumni Association on September 28th, he said that there is “no better economic-
political system than Reagan provides today” and that now is a “very advantageous time to invest in the U.S.” For success in investments, Mr. Sarlos suggests that the investor should recognize the worth of a concept, not listen to economic forecasting (it’s usually wrong) and take losses early. As for what to invest in, Mr. Sarlos suggests buying government bonds, U.S. investing in large investment corporations, and owning Canadian banks.

by Rob Rossi Who is responsible for rising prices and Tower quality in the food industry you ask? This is the question the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group hoped to answer last Wednesday in the Campus Centre, through their sponsored lecture “The Food Industry: Concentrated Power.” The event’s speaker was Allen Wilford, author of “Farm Gate Defense,” and founder of the Canadian Farmers Survival Association spoke. This was the same Allen Wilford who rallied his fellow farmers in Grey-Bruce County to resist foreclosure on their farms. In an attempt to prevent seizures by police, Wilford’s actions Mr. culminated in a “penny auction” when $200,000 worth of farm equipment was sold for a mere $19.8 1. Later on. when sent to jail, Wilford began what ended up being an eight day hunger strike to persuade Parliament to pass the 2nd reading of the Farmer’s Creditors Arrangement. He was successful. In his lecture, Mr. Wilford discussed what he called “the new wealth.” This “new wealth” was defined by Mr. Wilford as getting something from nothing, such as when a farmer plants his seeds in the ground and is later rewarded with a fresh crop.How ever, problems in the food industry have resulted because governments have tried to initiate their own artificial form of this “new wealth”.
Heritage a success by Irene Gillen Last week PALESTINE HERITAGE celebrated its second annual JERUSALEM DAY. The highly successful event involved the participation and co-operation of campus students and members of the local Palestinian community. Over 200 people attended the event sampled the many and traditional Palestinian foods that were provided. The JERUSALEM DAY featured an arts and crafts exhibit including hand blown glass, Palestinian national art, brass works as well as handcrafted olivewood and mother of pearl. A photo collection produced by one of the members of the
sponsoring group, PALESTINE HERITAGE, during a recent visit to the Middle East was exhibited (see centre . spread).

Announcements VILLAGE DON APPLICATION DEADLINE October 31st Students who wish to apply for the position of Don in the Student Villages for the Spring Term 1985 should obtain an application form ‘from the Housing Office in
your listening pleasure
Village Office, and must submit it to the Warden of Residences, Housing Office, Village 1, prior to the END OF OCTOBER 1984. Applications received after October 3 1st cannot be considered for appointment for the Spring Term 1985.
The government’s “new wealth” (getting something from nothing) is based on the borrowing of money to revive the always floundering economy. This is a myth, Mr. Wilford claims, and argues that such a policy will not work because governments continually create their own balance of payments deficits. The problem is further aggravated as the government falls into a self-perpetuating cycle of borrowing more and more money, and not having the ability to pay it back. As Mr. Wilford later reflected, “Mother Nature doesn’t have to get paid back; banks do.” Such policies are hurting the food industry for several reasons Mr. Wilford believes. First of all, there is added pressure on the farmer by government to produce more, which adds to surpluses and reduced profits. Secondly, with such pressure to expand in order to keep up, the farmer is denied the opportunity to rotate his crops without using chemicals. Finally, Mr. Wilford argues that the corporations have too much control over the industry. And so, we have high prices and lower food quality. What is Ailen Wilford’s solution? He maintains that conditions will not change until there are fair prices, smaller farms, the opportunity for farmers to rotate their crops regularly, and especially when marketing boards are taken out of the hands of government and corporations and put into those of the producers themselves.

by John Blake Knechtel for Canadian University Press TORONTO (CUP) -- Students who staged a dramatic 24-hour occupation of the arts and science dean’s office at the University of Toronto last week in protest of underfunding are pleased with their efforts. “We worked from the grassroots, and we raised consciousness,” said Ava Szczurko, one of the spokespeople for the 25 occupiers. “We told people that the education system is in crisis.” Fiona Keith, another spokesperson for the students, said the “spontaneous” action brought together many students who had never publicly demonstrated their concerns about post-

secondary education. “‘This was the first time any of us had taken part in an action of this kind,” Keith said. through The students. carrying banners and marching hallways in the Arts and Science building before reaching the dean’s office, began the occupation at noon Sept. 20 and stayed through the night until noon the next day. A sign saying “Occupied” was posted outside the office. While groups of students negotiated with arts and science dean Robin Armstrong about their demands, students in the building and all over campus distributed leaflets and collected more than 300 signatures on a petition supporting the action. The number of students crowding into the dean’s office reached a high of 40 in the afternoon. “Underfunding, a problem for a decade. has now produced a said a statement released by the crisis in education in Ontario,” occupiers. “Classes are overcrowded and qualified students are being denied access to courses they need in order to complete their requirements.*’ The students demanded the arts and sciences dean admit the faculty is severly underfunded and that the measures taken to alleviate the problem undermine students’ right to a quality education. The measures included balloting, a sign-up process where students get the courses they want on a first-come, first served basis, limited enrolment in certain programs and the redistribution of funds from one financially strapped department to another. They also wanted the dean to extend the deadline for
ettrolment in at ts and science courses, which he later did. After two negotiating sessions, dean Armstrong acknowledged that some attempts by the faculty to cope with underfunding are “band-aid measures”. but he quickly added that they do not in any way impede a student’s education. Armstrong blamed what he tailed the appearance of underfunding crisis on the university’s “shopping period”. the time when students shop around for courses they might like to take. He said this practice means many classes appear overcrowded but will not be when students make their final decisions. 1 he dean also blamed the university’s open admissions policy, saying as faculty attempt to keep tabs on enrolment the situation will remain chaotic. Emerging from his office after the sessions, he said: “We don’t really have any different viewpoints (than before). My mind is not changed in half an hour conversation with anyone.” The students also demanded more student participation on departmental committees, especially those dealing with undergraduate curriculum and the hiring of academic staff. Armstrong said he has long supported student participation but he made no move to increase it. Although the students realized not all their demands were met, they said they enjoyed the opportunity to demonstrate their collective power. “The i!fa of a demonstration is great, people showing their pou’er n the streets (and in the classroom),” said Alan Rosenthal one of’ the occupiers.

by Chris Wodskou, Imprint staff The seemingly endless lineup outside Marshall Hall at Bingeman Park was getting restless and thoroughly frozen. They were impatient awaiting their first beer of the night, to get warmed up, but more than anything else, to see the Psychedelic Furs, the latest in a series of blockbuster B.Ent presentations. Much to the bewilderment of the hundreds of people still in
line, the unadvertised opening act, The Dave Howard Singers, took the stage. This “band” actually only consists of Dave Howard on vocals and organ accompanied only by a beat box. The Singers have quickly become one of the most talked about and controversial bands in Toronto, not only because of the unusual format, but also because of the repertoire which includes a. song called “Child Molester”. The audience gave Howard a mixed reaction ranging from
delight to disgust to hardly realizing that he was on stage. The Furs, however, were in complete command -of the audience from the moment they took the stage to the moment they left. Opening with “Love My Way” from their Forever Now album, The Furs set the tone for the rest of the evening with the crowd dancing feverishly in spite of the crush of bodies on the floor. The sound was great, albeit uncomfortably loud for those standing by the speakers. The focus of their show, of course, was on the unique, throaty voice and theatrical stage presence of lead vocalist, Richard Butler. Dressed in a baggy, black suit which has recently become his trademark, Butler captivated everyone with his dramatic show which has often been compared to David Bowie, sometimes appearing frozen in a state of trance-like meditation and at other times making symbolic gestures such as his Nazi salute an’i goose-stepping through the chorus of “President Gas” and his striking bodily imitation of a cross in “Imitation of Christ”. The musicianship on the part of the rest of the band was tight if unspectacular. In the forefront were the original Furs: John Ashton, on guitar, provided a contrast to Mr. Butler’s intensity as he preferred to look benignly indifferent to the fact that there was a concert going on, while Richard’s brother, bassist Tim Butler, could easily have been mistaken for a tripped-out Rolling Stone in the late 60’s. Mars Williams’& sax playing was .exceptionally soulful, though, and he played some fine solos, especially on the dance smash, “Heartbeat”. The Furs drew heavily from the Mirror Moues album, the record which graduated them from cult status to mass popularity. It was disappointing, though, for some of the older fans that they didn’t play more from their first two albums as the show was almost exclusively Forever- Now and Mirror Moues. Perhaps the highlight of the show was “Sister Europe”, in .which the dramatic lighting and Butler’s aching vocals and expressions created a mood of passionate despair. After shaking a lot of delirious front row hands and receiving flowers from admiring females over the course of about an hour, Mr. Butler danced off stage during their extended version of “Forever Now”. This was a disappointingly short show for the crowd who could have listenedtothe Furs all night. Their appetite was sated somewhat by fifteen minutes’s --worth of encores which saw “Imitation of Christ”, “Into You Like a Train” and. “India”. Mr. Butler seemed almost overwhelmed by the audience response as he acknowledged the cheers and it is doubtful that The Furs will come across a much more enthusiastic crowd than they encountered last Saturday at Bingeman Park.

Lou Reed live. at- Massey Hall /.
by Carl Davies Imprint staff As a live performer, Lou Reed has received some * pretty mixed reviews over the past twenty years or so. The man whose earlier music signified an end to innocence in the sixties with songs that openly talked of drug addiction, bisexuality, and prostitution, did not disappoint his Massey Hall
audience on October 1st. The show opened with two Velvet Underground (Lou’s old band) classics: “Sweet Jane” and “Waiting For the Man”, after which Mr. Reed provided the quote of the evening. Commenting on the lyrics “I’m waiting for the man, twenty six dollars in my hand”,he said, “it’s not hard to tell that that song was written in 1965. Just about all twenty
six bucks will buy you these days is a baby finger.” The quote gave a glimpse of what makes Lou Reed so appealing to his fans, a mind where nastiness and neo realism -have synthesized to prod!ice some of the most powerful lyrics in music. The show’s supporting cast was nothing short of superb, lead guitarist, particularly Peter Quine, who was all
forehead, shades, and magic fingers. Mr. Quine, along with bassist, Fernando Saunders, and drummer Fred Maher, played their instruments with . the required amount of ferocity and mental unbalance that seemed to so suit a Lou Reed show. Special mention goes to the keyboard/accordian player whose name may always remain a mystery.
by Mathew Ingram Imprint staff Perhaps one of the first things a creative writer realizes about writing is the necessity for a certain amount ,of objectivity---the reason being that the creative process of vision and revision is of necessity so intense that a writer has problems seeing the forest for the firewood, as it were. Certain elements of style and content, therefore, do not seem problematic or vague to the creator because he/she’ automatically fills in the gaps that might appear to the reader. What is needed then, if true objectivity cannot be achieved (and there is, at least in my mind, some doubt as to whether it ever can) is a different kind of subjectivity---in other words, another point of view. This is the sort of service that the Writer’s Workshop organized by Integrated Studies provides to creative writers (as does the Creative Writing course taught by Susan Musgrave, being essentially a workshop in class form). The Workshop was formed in September of 1980 by writer and Integrated Studies resource person Harold Horwood--who went on to write a book with Ed Butts, another I.S. person, called Pirates and Outlaws of Canada 1610-193%--and has been going strong for the past four years; Graeme Gibson was
creativity a member in 1982 while he was Writer-In-Residence, and current members include Dona Massef---A Dorothy Schumacher Literary Award winner---and Dr. Anne Dagg, both of whom are also Integrated Studies personnel. The Workshop meets on Tuesdays at 1:OO p.m. in the Sun Room of Integrated Studies, on the bottom floor of the PAS building, and any interested persons wishing more information should contact Dona Masse1 at 743-7482. If you are creatively inclined, and you wish to receive some constructive criticism from others of a similar bent, the Writer’s Workshop is the place to go. In the meantime, if you would like to hear some other poets read their work, a prime opportunity will be on Friday Oct. 5th at 8:00 p.m. in Siegfried Hall, St. Jerome’s College---reading will be Susan Musgrave, Writer-In-Residence at Waterloo and author of some ten books of poetry; Bill Bissett, another * acclaimed Canadian poet; and storyteller extraordinaire Brother Blue; Master-Of-Ceremonies will be the English ’ Department’s inimitable Eric McCormack. There will be a~ wine and cheese get-together beforehand, and the admission for the performance is $2.00, or $1.00 for students and seniors---for anyone interested in creative writing at all, this one is a must.
Lou Reed closed with an intense version of “White light/ White heat”. He belted it out with such authority that you could almost feel the heroin racing through his veins rushing towards another satisfying nod. A picture of Lou Reed, with his eyes almost puffed shut and deep4ined face, should have been taken during this song for the next “Stay Real” ad. Without a doubt, the highlight of the evening was the, first song of the encore. It was iike no other version of “Coney Island Baby” that I have heard in my entire life.
Everyone on stage was so charged up that Mr. Reed completely forgot to tell his audience that he wanted to play football for the coach and it wasn’t until Lou started screaming about the glory of love that you could be certain just which song it was. During the final two songs. it actually appeared as if Mr. Reed was enjoying himself, even taking time out to crack a smile during “Kill Your Son”, the second last song ot the evening. The final song 01 the night pretty well summed everything up for the show. .“Rock and Roll”.

by Linda McCord Imprint staff On September 30th, I was entertained by Pierre Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, Joe Clark, and Ed Broadbent. No, I wasn’t at a political rally. I attended a performance of the Royal Canadian Air Farce at the Humanities Theatre. I was also delighted with appearances by Queen Elizabeth and the Pope. The Royal Canadian Air Farce is a comedy group comprising Dave Broadfoot, Luba Goy (the only female member), Robert Abbott, Don Ferguson, and John Morgan. These five people make their living by making Canadians laugh at themselves, and they do a good job. The Air Farce, after eleven years of radio, television and stage performances, has become a unique Canadian fixture. Every weekend, the Air Farce air two radio shows in Toronto. They also do occasional television specials and often tour the country with a stage show. They have developed a following of loyal fans over time. In an interview with Imprint, Don Ferguson explained the pros and cons of performing in each of the three media. No matter which they work in, one essential ingredient for a good show is a live audience. When the Air Farce tape their radio show an audience is present, and segments of each television special are also taped before an audience. Since they always work in front of an audience, Ferguson says it is difficult to say which type of work the troupe prefers most. When taping a radio show, each week is full of fresh material so the variety here is valued by the members. Contrarily, on stage the show remains the same throughout a tour but a feeling of comfort is reached as the show comes closer to perfection. Television’s main advantage is the vast audience which can
be reached. The Air Farce enjoy performing in all three media. Their latest television special will be aired some time this fall on Global Television. Sunday night’s show was my initiation into Air Farce comedy. The show was a mixture of short skits and one liners which moved rapidly, and included both new skits and some old favourites of Air Farce fans. The newest addition to the Air Farce’s material is a skit appropriately named “The Life of Brian”. Brian Mulroney’s life and political career are dealt with in traditional Air Farce fashion; he is portrayed as an idiot. The Air Farce manages to make most politicians look like idiots, including P.E.T., Clark, and Broadbent to mention the most prominent. The politicians in the Air Farce’s material come and go depending on the public’s preference. Once people become tired of hearing about him, a politician will be retired from the troupe’s show. (If it were only that easy!) There are some characters created by the troupe of which the public never seems to tire. The audience attested to this fact by applauding “Bobby Clobber” even before he was seen on stage. All that he, and Sergeant Renfrew, needed to set off the audience was an introduction. These characters have become favourites for Air Farce fans and Ferguson explained that this is because they are not dated, unlike the politicians. The material used by the Air Farce is current, and is constantly updated as prominent events occur in Canada and around the world. This constant new material and the member’s desire to do their best has kept the Air Farce going for the past eleven years and will keep them going for many years.
ot blesse by Roy Charles Imprint staff Neil Simon is a predictable playwright. And his comedy God’s Fauorite is a predictable play. The J-M Drama Alumni, who presented Mr. Simon’s comedy this past weekend at St. Jerome’s high school, cannot be faulted for the uninspired script. That’s Mr. Simon’s fault. God’s Fauor-ite is a sitcom rewriting of the Book of Job. Job is recast as Joe Benjamin (JoeB -- -qet it?),,, successful cardboard box manufacturer living somewhere in New York, circa 1984. The Book of Job is the biblical explanation for the existence of evil -- it’s God’s will. Man will suffer, but never renounce God. But God likes proof of faith. So God and Simon test poor Joe. They put the Benjarnin family through such disasters and calamaties as fire and blindness. Mr. Simon’s contribution to the story of Job is a few
and one or two gags impassioned wails for Divine Justice. Despite Mr. Simon, the audience enjoyed the play. The set was well-made and was effectively transformed from posh bourgeois parlour to gutted tenement as Joe Benjamin is given the full treatment by his loving God. The players had enthusiasm, but lacked the discipline, tight delivery and timing that comedy demands Kristine Schmitt was an effective ingenue. As Joe’s daughter she was all wide eyes and decolletage. Chris Huston as the obedient but thick-headed son was eager. But their timing lagged In the early scenes, slowing the momentum of the play. Benjamin’s wayward son was played by Dan Burjowskl. His portrayal of a drunk was cliched, but he delivered most of his repartee with ease. Mark Panchaud as Joe Benjamin gave an uneven performance.
His arms-glued-to-his-sides delivery wasn’t very effective, but he was capable when it came to scenes of slapstick. An attack of God-sent itches sent him into demented squirmings which were almost Belushi-like in intensity. (I’d give an arm for a ten-inch finger,” he squeals.) William Klos as God’s messenger was the most able member of the cast. He had verve and spirit and gave a mature presence to the production.

Who’s Afraid Of? The Art of Noise Island Records If you want, some interesting musical--or should I say--sound combinations, this is the album for you. The group obtained its name from Marinetti, the Italian founder of the so-called “futuristic movement”, whose work was titled The Art of Noise. Among the collaborators on the album are Trevor Horn, producer of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and some past contributors to ABC’s “Lexicon of Love” and Malcolm McLaren’s “Due k Rock”. Musically, the album is easy to describe because some of the sounds are so distinctive.
On many of the tunes, Trevor Horn’s drum machine beats pounds out warlike akin to a frenzied Phil Collins. Repetitive vocal sounds are so distinctive. On many of the tunes, Trevor Horn’s drum machine pounds out warlike beats akin to a frenzied Phil Collins. Repetitive vocal sounds are used frequently also, a definite derivative of songs like Yaz’s “In My Room”. “A Time for Fear (Who’s Afraid?)” contains definite pokes at Western, imperialistic self-righteousness. The mood oscillates from heavy percussion to a sad, ominous, and even prophetic melody. The title cut sounds like a girl being tickled by baby synthesizers while “Moments in Love” is delightfully mellow, but still a bit too weird for your next candlelit dinner with the girl or boy of your dreams.
Experimental Tonight David Bowie EML Hurray! The David Bowie we had grown sick of in the days of Let’s Dunce is dead and gone. Replacing that shallow, commercial shadow of an artist is the cherished Bowie: the avante-garde, damn-the-record-sales Bowie. After the artistic prostitution that was Let’s Dunce, the Thin One apparently felt it was necessary to return to his innovative roots. While the influence of his experiences in the multisexual clubs of London does not come through, the contribution of black tirtists to the musical education of David Bowie is a constant on this new EMI release. The fact that Mr. Bowie wrote just six of the songs on the album, four of these with Iggy Pop(with Pop, Crian Wilson and others sharing the writing credits for the other three shows that he was willing to songs), experiment. Some of these experiments worked; others did not. The first side is fantastic: “Loving the Alien” and “Tonight” will become hits. Though billed by some as a continuation of the Space Oddity/Ashes to Ashes genre,

The latest Heaven 17 album How Men Are should be sent out by Polygram Canada in early October. The album features the Earth Wind & Fire horn section as well as AfroDiziac.
“loving the Alien” has a unique sound. 1 True, there are sectionof the song that hint of those mega-smashes, but at the same time there is a syncopated xylophone backdrop combined with monotonical, Laurie Anderson-style drones. Not much like Major Tom at all! “Tonight”, Bowie’s duet with super sexy senior Tina Turner, is a wonderful surprise. It combines gospel, Carribean and jazz influences in a funky but subdued love song. “Don’t Look Down” is a strange ditty. It combines African, Carribean and 1950’s styles effectively. This gives the number the flavour of a cross between the Spinners and the English Beat on Quaaludes. Soulful but eclectic. The only song that really doesn’t shine on the first side is Bowie’s rendition of “God Only Knows”, written by Brian Wilson, which seems somehow out of place. The second side returns to the rock ‘n’ roll Bowie. “Neighbourhood Threat” and “Tumble and Twirl” show an edge which Bowie hasn’t revealed since Diamond Dogs. “Blue Jean” is the compromise of the album, masterfully combining all of the styles of the album in one very catchy tune. The remaining two songs, however, are anti-climatic. Still, on the whole, Tonight is a good album. Welcome back to Earth, Monsieur Bowie.

After a long wait, the Broken Tables 12” has finally made its way to the record stores. The single-is the viqyl debut for Broken Tables whose
members attend the University of Waterloo. Alan Vintar playing the roles of vocalist, synth programmer and composer is the group’s main man. Alan’s brother John plays bass while Rod Garratt (who some may recognize as the guitarist of local faves Bell Jar) provides guitar work and backing vocals. A sparse,
machine beat provides the basic framework on which “The Ruins” is built. The cold emptiness is soon washed over by the on-rushing synth highlighted with cleverly underplayed guitar flashes. Vintar’s darkly evocative voice takes hold of the mood and effectively conjures an atmosphere of slithering gloom. “Image of You” works just 3s well in creating a richly textured ambience but succeeds to a greater degree in achieving an instrumental equilibrium in the mix. Broken Tables provide a sorely needed alternative to the soulless pap which we ‘seem to be constantly spoonFed on the Canadian music Scene.

i out of 3 ain’t bad
by Kevin Phillips Bong Things didn’t go as planned for the soccer Warriors this past week, as they gained only two points from their three games. After an exciting 3-2 victory over Laurier last Thursday, September 27, they dropped a game to Windsor on the Saturday, and another to Western on the Sunday. Thursday’s game against Laurier was an emotional match, and both teams played with much intensity. The Warriors, as
A soccer player

has become their custom, fell behind early, the result of a rather slow start, but Corey Williams equalized when he deflected a Laurier clearance into the net during a goal-mouth scramble. Laurier led at half time, 2-1, after the Warriors again failed to clear the ball from their penalty area. Waterloo came out in the second half an entirely new team, and applied pressure to the Laurier defence causing many miscues. With about 25 minutes remaining, Mark Forster tied the
game for Waterloo when he drilled the ball past a surprised Laurier goaltender from about 35 yards out. At iti:‘- point, Waterloo looked very strong and Laurier appeared tobepia;ling for the tie. With four minutes remaining, rookie Gar) C !oper hammered a loose ball into the Laurier net to secure the win an all but eliminate Laurier from the playoffs. In last Saturday’s game against Windsor, the Warriors didn’t fare so well. They looked flat, possibly still thinking about the win over Laurier, and failed to create man!’ opportunities to score. Windsor didn’t seem particularl>strong, and indeed only scored once when they capitalized on some poor communication amongst the Waterloo defence. However, Waterloo rarely looked dangerous either, and Coach John Vincent said after the game that he felt that “there wasn’t five minutes of good soccer by either team” and that Waterloo “deserved at least a tie”. On September 30 at Western, the Warriors agains showed their inability to assess their opposition’s strengths and weaknesses. Western’s back four has a mean height of well over six feet, and yet Waterloo persisted in attempting to beat them in the air and not on the ground. The Warriors again fell victim to a slow start and dropped two goals in the first 15 minutes. The Warriors became the better team in the second half as they changed their game plan. They moved the ball effectively and looked very dangerous at times. If not for the number of cross-bars and goal-posts they hit, the result may have been different. Western went ahead 3-O before Waterloo notched their only goal. Larry Quarashie, who Vincent singled out as one who played well in the Western game, headed a corner-kick past the Western keeper. It was a case of too little, too late. Vincent felt his boys “did their ususal stuff of standing and watching the game for the first half” but. “were the better team in the second half”. Because of the logjam at the top of the OUAA West Division, the Warriors still find themselves in the thick of things for the three playoff positions with McMaster, Western and Windsor. As coach John Vincent said, Waterloo has “put its own back up against the wall”. and “from now on it all depends on how much we want it.” Accordingly, this weekend’s games against McMaster on October 6th and the grudge match aginst Western on October 7th will be crucial.
was em amassing?: 6 by Mike Upmalis Imprint sports Steve Haymen had a little problem. You see, Steve is the leader (?) of the Warrior Band “of some repute”. His problem was that he was the only member of the band at game site and the crowd was waiting for the playing of 0 Canada, To top things off, Steve plays the trombone, and the only thing handy was a trumpet. He played the trumpet before, about eight years ago. So at the risk of looking like a fool, more the certainty, Mr. Haymen performed an impromptu solo rendition of 0 Canada on the trumpet. When faced with what looks like it’s impossible and you give full effort, the question is, did you really fail? Waterloo’s football Warriors, led to a 60-6 rQut by the McMaster Marauders, showed a lot enthusiasm if little execution. The numbers tell the tale. Waterloo was held to a total offense of 60 yards, 43 of them rushing and 17 through the air. McMaster on the other hand had total offense of 48 1 yards on the day. McMaster had 272 yards in rushing. Waterloo was without their starting QB Drew Zehr. Zehr had been playing with bruised ribs for the past couple of weeks and had been knocked out of last weeks, and this weeks, game. Waterloo’s rookie backup QB Tony Iantorno in his first starting assignment went 2 for 15 for the total air attack of 17 yards. McMaster’s QB Phil Scarfone came into the game with a division leading record of having passed for 611 yards, almost 300 yards more than his nearest rival at Western, Andy Rossit. His!pass completion record in the two previous games was 37 for 62. Phil Scarfone was a strong choice to lead his team to the Vanier Cup this year, until he fractured his jaw in the Friday’s last game. On the basis of one play, Waterloo’s outstanding offensive star of the game was Rob Kent. On one of Waterloo’s punts McMaster fumbled on their own 12. Rob Kent in a scramble that resembled more a game of tag than football managed to fall on the ball for Waterloo’s first major of the year. McMaster made it on’the scoreboard early and often. On their first five possesions they managed three touchdowns, one
field goal and a punt through the endzone for a single point.By the end of the first half the score was 46-6 for Mat. Waterloo’s defense success may be best measureg by comparing the number of touchdowns scored against Mat possesions, Waterloo did manage to sack Mat once ‘l’n the first half, not bad considering that Mat’s offensive line can stand in for the Niagara Escarpment most days. Coach Bob McKillop had two comments on the game.
Coming on for the second half, all he said was “WOW”. At the end of the game his single comment to the press was that, “it was sembarrasing.” In preparation for this weeks game against the Guelph ‘Gyryphons, he will probably be working on the special teams again, a problem he thought he had fixed. Waterloo’s next game is here at home, when they will play against Toronto’s Varsity Blues.
Runners by Rob Hardy From southern Ontario to New York, Waterloo runners made their presence known during this past weekend, September 29th. In Guelph, the Warriors led by a strong minded Andy Krucker (7th) captured third place behind Western and McMaster at the Guelph Cross-Country Meet. The rolling terrain of the IOkm circuit took its toll on many of the fast starters, as were quickly the leaders strung out. The other scoring Warriors were well bunched; they included: Chris Lane ( 11th), Robert Hardy (ILath), Kevin Shields (Igth), and
Dwight Caldwell (33rd). Although the Athenas were unable to break into the lead pack, they worked together as a team and were able to secure fourth position behind Western, Queens, and 11 Iil ; Toronto. The five SCC-I-the runners to cover demanding Skm loop were :helle Nel Wieman (25th), Mic March (2&h), Kelly BOU lding Maureen Sur nmer WW, and Kathy Esauer (33rd). (34th).

Ladies lost hockey hack-fest by Mike Upmalis Imprint sports UW’s Athena field hockey team managed a tie and scored a loss in two games last Saturday. Waterloo played to a 3-3 tie with the Guelph in the afternoon and were crushed by the Toronto Varsity Blues 6-O on September 29th. Toronto scored early against Waterloo and the first half belonged to them. Toronto scored three time% in the first ten minutes and Waterloo proved unable to get the ball across the field for the rest of the first half. Toronto marked up one more goal to finish up the half with a score of 4-0. Waterloo regained its
composure and played a challenging game against the Blues. While they showed great spirit and tenacity to get the ball down field, the necessary finesse to score was not there,
Toronto added two more goals to finish the second half. Coach Judy McCrae is working seven rookies into the lineup. The necessary cohesion that comes from a team takes a fair number of
games to come about. Where it was most obvious was in the time Waterloo was taking to set up passes and free hits, time that seemed to serve the more than opposition Waterloo.

Hockey Predictions ’ by Rob Thompson . ’ A League: Kinucks look strong this year and if preseason practices are any indication of things to come, Steve Jones & Company could finish first in A League standings. St. Jerome’s “A”, always a very strong contender, and Engineering~‘a “young” team, have made their final cuts and should give the Kinucks a run for the money. Team Canibuscould be playing at an all-time “high” and might be the sleeper in this league. A League: 1. A/2 2. A/7 3. A/l 0 4. A/l , B Leagues: BI. Reccers and Buckyland should battle heat-to-head for first place in their division. Reccers might have an edge playing weekend games and could win a few with the help of a big “D” fault.- “West 3” could be a “Thorns” in the front runners side and might prove to be an up nd cominiq contender. ,

B 2. The new South Sport Network has signed a lucrative TV deal and, looks good in that coverage on to the finals. Exports are sure to get some advertising time-with the Sports Newtwork and they too will be high in terms of the final C.R.H. “Neilson’s” rating. B-3. Maple Rockies have held numerous practices and are looking good on and off the ice. They are attempting to get jackets and trophies at the end of the year with a first place finish in mind, Rigid Reggies could be the sleeper in this division. It might depend on whether Steve Chappel ,can make the transition from the delta system to playing old-time hockey, like Eddie Shore B 4. Tinamou Tribe will be on the warpath and will have strong opposition from the big “Red Machine”, Co-op Red Army. We could also “see” the Photons sneak in the top three. B League Final Predictions:

Sammy, Singlet’s Basketball a Predictions by Sammy Singlet Now that the basketball season is under way, it is time for SAMMY to make some premature playoff predictions. Most of these somewhat arbitrary choices may or may not prove true, but it is hoped that SAMMYS crystal ball will prove to be at least 60% correct. In the A league, there are six teams - all capable of taking the championship. Of course, being somewhat biased, SAMMY chooses On Probation to win again, with the Niners close behind. However, the Sultans of Swish and Ron’s Dons may have something to say about that. There are 2 new kids on the block, the Geoknobs and Premature
[7 is a defensive maneuver used in basketball 0 are the reporters at a packed trial 0 is a secret fraternity handshake 2. .“INTERFERENCE”: 0 is a penalty in hockey or football . 0 is what you get without cable ’ q is anyone between you and an OV I 3. A ‘“SACK” REFERSTO: -0 tackling the quarterback in the .act of passing 0 that dress you bought your girlfriend on her birthday 0 how your last summer’job ended
1) On Probation, 2) Niners, 3) Sultans of Swish, 4) Ron’s Dons, 5) Premature Dribbles; 6) Geoknobs. If Bruce Briard and Ian MacDonald have anything to say about this, the Cieoknobs may end up a lot higher than SAMMY suspects. - Statistically, the B league predictions could be 0% correct. SAMMY’S crystal ball sees some interesting clashes imminent. The SINGLET can see six teams battling in the end for the Bl Championship. They are Spurt (Mark!, I mean Mike!), Flyin’ Eyes, 76’ers, Kinucks, Zero A Mech and the Dirty Dawgs. Is SAMMY correct?!! We’ll see!! SAMMYS crystal ball is a little foggy today, so don’t be upset if the SINGLET is completely off -side. SAMMY is totally lost as to who is ‘super strong in the C league, so he will pick the teams with the most interesting suggestive names: 1) Froshbusters, 2) Beaver Patrol, 3) Gumbies, 4) W-5 Wild Bunch, 5) Buckyland, 6) North 1 Doctors. It is hoped that no ghosts intrude on the Froshbusters as the’ Beaver Patrol may move right in. if .Pokey happens to be onthe ddelines, the Gumbies may have problems but SAMMY cannot tell!!!

Sports Commentary: Ali as a fallen champ The saddest moments in pro sports are when a fallen champion continues to participate long after he or she should have retired. We would like to remember our heros as they were when they dominated the game and stamped their name on a particular style, rather than as over the hill bums who are only hanging in to make a few more dollars. Baseball is a primary culprit, where athletes shuffle from team to team trying to get one last paycheque or break some silly record. People will remember Pete Rose but it won’t be for breaking Ty Cobb’s record. It will be for playing long past his prime when he was but a shadow of his former self. Boxing, too, has its share of former champs who should have left the ring long before they did. Leon Spinks, Joe Frazier and Sugar Ray Leonard are but a few who in recent years tried at least
one fight too many. Now it appears as if you can add the name of the Great One, Muhammed Ali to that list. As Ali’s fighting and verbal skills diminished after the “Thrilla in Manilla” in 1975, he fought in San Juan, Landover, Munich, Tokyo, New York, New &leans and Las Vegas. Finally when not even the seediest boxing authorities would touch him in the United States, he lost his last stand in the boxing capital of the world, Nassau, to Trevor Berbick in 1981. Now people are saddened by the news that Ali’s subdued pace has been diagnosed as Parkinson’s syndrome, probably connected to a quatercentury of having his brain pounded. Ali was a great champion. He was the leading spokesman for boxing during his fighting years. I would like to remember him as such. I only wish that he hfd stopped when he was at the top.
by Sandy Townsend imprint staff The Warriors got back on the victory track last week with a hard fought triumph over the surprisingly gritty Brock Badgers. The Warriors controlled the game throughout, but were only able to punch the ball over the Badger line twice. At the final whistle it was Waterloo 10. Brock 3. The Warriors left the field a weary but happy crew. Forward Mark Allison summed up the players’ feelings when he said, .‘the Badgers surprised us with their toughness and right now we are happy to be going to the change room with the victory.” When Brock defeated Laurier two weeks ago, it was their first victory in two years. They came into the Warrior game obviously hoping for a sweep of their Waterloo rivals. The Warriors started strongly and it appeared as if another victory was in the making, when Dave Lum Kong danced over the line to score the first Warrior points. After winning a ruck near the Brock line, the ball sped along the Warrior backline to Lum Kong who left several Badgers looking for theirjocks as he darted inside the would-be tacklers. Still 10 metres from the line, Lum Kong slipped two more tackles and wriggled over the line near the goalposts. Waterloo kicker Paul Toon was accurate with his conversion attempt to make the score Waterloo 6, Brock 0. Much to the surprise of the Warriors, the “BeepBeep” Badgers did not roll over and die. Instead they came storming back. A questionable penalty call against Warrior Bill Beldham their only points when their kicker was true with his effort. Try as they might, Waterloo could not score any more points until the second half.
Despite the fact that the Warriors only scored four points, the second half was all theirs. Winger Jon Butcher was robbed twice of what were sure tries and Jeff Solly appeared to be home free only to have the ball roll out of bounds micro-seconds before he could scoop it up.

The only score of the half came when hooker Jim (“I’m not old, just bald”) Shaw slid into the end-z.one to claim a loose ball and score the try. After winning another ruck, second row forward Terry Pottruf crashed down near the Brock line. The ball spun out of his hands and into the waiting paws of Shaw, who was given the try. Even though they didn’t score, the leading Warrior players in the second half were Paul Toon, John Motherwell, and Mark Allison. On numerous occasions Toon and Motherwell went on long downfield rambles which left several Brock players in their wake and electrified the small but enthusiastic crowd. Warrior coach Mark Harper was especially pleased with the “work-rate” of his forwards and added that his “makeshift backline played a solid if unspectacular game”. “Beating them (Brock) is a start. There were many positive aspects in the victory, and now it is time to build on them in preparing for our stretch run” Harper said. Once again, the final score was, Waterloo 10, Brock 3.
