UW Security is withholding important statistics on campus assaults, says Angela Evans, Women’s Commissioner for the Federation of Students. The administrators contacted were unwilling to give out any statistics or information on this issue. “We deserve the right to make informed decisions about our movements on campus at night,” said Evans. The information she has requested includes the total number of assaults on campus, where and when they took place, whether the assaults were reported to the police, and if the assailants were apprehended. Sonny Flanagan, Federation of Students preSident, also expressed concern that the information was not available. “It’s important that we are.able to identify the key danger areas so we can do‘something about it.” If Security doesn’t release the statistics, he said, “it’s just saying we don’t care what’s happening on campus. I’m sure that’s not the sentiment. Someone who doesn’t know the personalities involved might interpret Security’s response in a different way.” Flanagan plans to meet with Romenco on this issue. ’ Al Romenco, Director of Security, was not available to Imprint for comment on the issue. He was phoned three times a day on three separate. days. .,Each time, he was in a meeting. Messages were left each time, but none of the calls w.ere returned. When Romenco’s superior, Jack Brown, University Secretary, was contacted for comment on the situation. he said, “You cah’t get then (the statistics) from me. 1 operate on a need-to-know basis.” But, “If 1 were to give him advice, it would be not to give any statistics out. I’m not going to support any release of the information, unless you can convince me some public good would be served.” l When it was suggested that the statistics are

needed to inform women of the risk of beinn oncampus at night so they can modify their behaviour, and thus possibly decrease the number of assaults, Brown said, “As soon as the press has the information, any progress is stopped .” He expressed a concern that the release of the statistics would cause problems for Security. When asked further how it would interfere with Security, Brown said, “My personal opinion is that it would not help. 1 will not explain it to the press. 1 have no further comment.” UW Security is an independent unit that reports only serious offences to the Waterloo Regional Police. It maintains control over its records. U W Security policy differs from WLU’s policy. Laurier’s Security Director reported there were two assaults on campus last term, both of them sexual assaults. Staff Sergeant Carmount of the Waterloo Regional Police, reports the,re were 13 sexual assaults onthe streets in 1985. Two big problem areas, he said, were the Victoria St. and River Rd. area in Kitcheney, and the northwest portion of Waterloo, north of Columbia and Webel Streets. Physical assaults on the street number 1I, for the same period. Other statistics on ‘assaults in Waterloo are found in the 1984 Annual Report of the Waterloo Regional Police Force. According to the report, there were 155 sexual assaults in Waterloo. There were eight sexual assaults with a weapon, and seven aggravated sexual assaults. Sexual assault, as defined in Section 246.1 of the Criminal Code, is intentional and forced contact with sexual organs, genitalia or a woman’s breasts. Aggravated sexual assault is the wounding, maiming, disfiguring or the life of the victim (or endangering complainalit) while committing a sexual assault.
Alderman Telegdi’s proposal cri(ticized by mayor by Christine Sinding Imprint staff
City of Waterloo Mayor Marjorie Carroll says City Council “does not waive land levy fees” and she would “have difficulty considering” a proposal to do so in the case of UW’s proposed North Campus townhouses. During an interview last Wednesday, Carroll told Imprint that Alderman Andrew Telegdi was out of line in proposing to waive the U W land levy fees to the press rather than first bringing the idea to council. Telegdi proposed to waive the approximate $100,000 land levy for UW’s townhouse project to the press on January 18. This, according to Carroll, has created a media campaign on ( an issue which hasn’t even been proven legal. “Andrew Telegdi was being unfair to Council (in announcing the idea to the press). Until council has an opportunity to know what Teiegdi’s proposal is, I’m addressing hypothetical questions,” said Carroll. At present, Carroll is having her solicitor investigate the idea. Land levies pay for watermains, roads and genera1 servicing of land in the citv. Although the site where U W’s townhouse project would be locate> ( WestmGunt and Columbia Sts.) is fully serviced, Carroll said the money is channelled into a fund for servicing in other areas of Waterloo. This means Water100 taxpayers would have to pick up the fee if Council were to waive the land levy. “Levies do not pay for the servicing of a specific site, they pay for larger watermains, roads and broader servicing and are channelled into one fund,” said Carroll. “Council does not waive fkes for senior citizens, co-operative housing or low cost housing. It would bc unprecedented.” Despite the mayor’s position, Andrew Telegdi believes the idea would greatly service the people of the municipality as well as students. Telegdi said, in an interview last Tuesday, that council wotild be addressing overall housing problems by waiving the fee iti addition to arming themselves to lobby the province for additional university funding. “If Council and Waterloo residents look at the idea as helping the community as a whole, they may view the issue differently. We are looking at a city with major problems with regard to city housing,” said Telegdi. “It is necessary to boost the quality of life in this city. Low’ i
housing coupled with the soon-to-be-enforced minima1 standards and occupancy bylaws is making matters worse.” Telegdi said he doesn’t view the proposal as’ setting a precedent or withdrawing necessary financing from other funds. Telegdi suggested that other councils have offerred incentives for business to move into their area, siting Toyota’s decision to locate in Cambridge, and Toronto’s direct involvement in co-op student housing. He said council must take direction on an issue which is such a large-scale problem and the establishment of more student townhouses would alleviate the ‘cramping’ found in many residential areas. “The city needs players to create accomodation and the university has land. The city can help. The land already has the necessary servicing and 1 could see the city waiving part of the lot levy to help,” said Telegdi. “The universities are major industries and we must do what we can. This will also put us in a much better position to lobby the province.” Andrew Telegdi said, responding to the question of lost tax
dollars, that Council has invested money in less tangible projects. This proposal, he said, would be addressing a major need in the city. “Everytime 1 drive by the Timeteller (approx. $100,000 project at King and William Sts.) 1 think to myself how many students could be housed. The city must put this idea into perspective,” said Telegdi. Mayor Carroll says such projects are comple;ely unrelated to Telegdi’s proposal. She also said that the Toyota deal can’t be used as an example of incentives because the land was provincially owned and the Region isn’t supporting the province’s decision to give other industries less priority. Carroll said Council has appointed a task force to examine the housing issue from a broad perspective and then draw conclusions once the information is available. “The province went after Toyota and the upper-levels of government called the shots. All Regional Council was very adament that existing projects should not be set aside,” Carroll said. “Council has appointed a task force on housing and a mandate has been set down. 1 will not pre-judge this and Alderman Telegdi should not either.”
-McGill follows UW’s footsteps MONTREAL (CUP) -- If the says ‘Bourassa nothing about McGill University’s move to by-pass the province’s freeze on tuition will fees, every university scramble to get more money from students in the same way. several Quebec student groups say. Last month, McGill’s Task Force’ on Finance recommen-‘ ded that every student be charged an extra $100 per year to pay for photocopying course materials. This “incidental course material charge” would bring McGill about $3 million
extra a year. * According to McGill student council representative, this special fee is a way for the university to raise tuition fees without breaking Quebec law, and has nothing to do with photocopying costs. “It’s not a secret that the university needs money, and they aren’t getting it from the government,*’ said vice president University Affaris Gracie Mimran,, “so instead they are getting it from within from the students.” “Many courses already have photocopying fees,” said vice
president External Luc JoliCoeur, “and many courses don’t need them. There will be lots of students paying $100 for absolutely nothing. It’s a way of raising fees to combat the deficit. It’ll be the new trend at universities.” McGill administrator’s aren’t trying very hard to hide the motives behind the new charge. “Believe me we wouln’t have to do this if we had the proper funding.” said McGill’s Comptroller R. Kuranoff, “We’d love to raise fees. We’ve been lobbying the government for a long time now to get them
raised, but they won’t listen.” Que bet tuition fees for universities have been frozen since 1969. (Undergraduate full-time university students pay $570 a year for tuition, the lowest in Canada). While fees have remained frozen, g o v e r n me n t g r a n t s t o universities have been shrunk by thirty per cent over the past five years. Quebec universities will carry an estimated total deficity of $80 million in 1985.86. McGill’s “special charge” must pass in the University Senate and Board .
Eight camiidates~running for, Federatioy by Frank van Biesen Imprint staff
This year’s Federation of Students elections feature a total of eight candidates for the positions of President, Vice-President, Operations and Finance (VPOF), and Vice-President, University Affairs (VPUA). The nominees for President total four, including the incumbent, Sonny Flanagan, who is seeking re-election. There. are two nominations for each of the VP positions. These positions are presently held by Mark McKay (VPOF), and Scott Forrest, who was elected to VPUA in a by-election last October. The type. of experience brought into the campaign by the candidates is quite varied. To provide a brief profile of each candidate, all -were asked to describe their past experience, background, and personal, character attributes which they considered important in being elected to.one of the positions. Each was also asked to state’ his, her main reason for running. Sonny Flanagan
Sonny Flanagan is running for his second term as Federation President. He is a 3rd year philosophy student, and 27, years ofage. Prior to being elected last year, he held the Creative Arts Chair of the Federation Executive, as well as the position of Deputy Returning Officer for the Federation. Flanagan’s business experience. was developed when he spent five years working in industry before entering university. He believes that his first year in office has prepared him.for a more productive second term. “1 feel more comfortable with the. system. 1 know the personalities involved within the administration,” says Flanagan, “and one year is just not enough to get what you want done.i’ He hopes to improve the Federation in some areas which he believes are still lacking. Why a second term? Replies Flanagan, “You can be so much more effectiv,e in the second year. lt.just wouldn’t be fair to leave now.”
He has been both a Village don and treasurer of the Village Benefit Semi-Formal for two years. The need for improvement is Grove’s reason for seeking the office of VPOF, and he believes his interpersonal and financial management skills will assist him in this goal.
AS present VPUA, Scott Forrest has become familiar with’the overall operation of the Federation. A 22-year-old Recreation student in his 3rd year, Forrest has sat on the Housing*lssues and Policy Review committees. .and holds the Students’ Rights Committee chair. Since his election to the VPUA position, he has been in charge of the Education Commission, the Board 01 Academic Affairs, the Women’s Commission, and both the External and lnternal Liaisons- He is also this. year’s Cultural Caravan organizer. Forrest feels that hisdifferent levels of student ‘involvement, his sensitivity towards students’ concerns, as well ai his determination will help him represent the student body as President. He sees the need for some changes within the Federation, and views the position of President as the means of accomplishing this goal.
Matt Erickson Matt Erickson has been invoived in student affairs for several years. Erickson is a 26:year-old psychology student in his 2nd year. He is a candidate for VPUA as somewhat of a spin-off from his present and past ,student involvement. He has worked at the Legal Resource Office since 1984, and has served as its coordinator since 1985. He is presently on the Housing lssucs committee for the City . of Waterloo. H.e is the undergraduate coordinator for campus mediation, and has been involved with peers counselling and the structuring of the Rent Recovery Service. He believes his genuine interest. in student issues and concerns, his enthusiasm, and his interpersonal skills will go a long way in successfully filling the position of VPUA.
Dianne Myerson is a 4th year Chemical Engineering student. Myerson, 23 years of age, was a representative to the Federation Student Council in 1984-85, and a member of both the Alcohol Awareness and Bombshelter Renovations committees. Sh.e served as the inter-university liaison for the Congress of Canadian Engineering Students- (CCES). Some of Myerson’s business experience was developed through her position as treasurer of the Engineering Society in 1983-84. She was a member of the 1984 orientation committee as well as assistant organizer of the Shinerama fund-raising event. Myerson is running for President. Carol Goulette
Carol Roulette is a 3rd year C & 0 student, and 21 years of age. She is a candidate for VPOF and cites her work term experience in the areas of business and marketing as a helpful background. David Bray,, a 28-year-old graduate economics student, has been Roulette is presently vice-chair for the Board of Academic Affairs. politically active for some time, both provincially and federally. _ She has also been inc olved with MathSoc orientation for two years. She believes her approachability, efficiency as a worker, and During the past year, his main efforts have been directed towards skills will help her in the capacity of VPOF. lobbying and actively protesting the adm.inistration’s . communications Roulette considers it necessary for the Federation to have sound implementation of the computer fee. He sat on the committee managem,ent, as well as a more open relationship with the students formed by the Federation to study the fee, and claims a large part of theresponsibility for raising student awareness on this subject. Bray regarding its financial situation. has also- worked for th,e Board of Entertainment for two years, as -well as being involved in WPlRG. But his main thrust in seeking the Willie Grove p.osition of President has been the computer fee. Says Bray, “Last -year he (Flanagan) claimed there was nothing the matter with the computer fee. It’s been a tough fight to regain the position we were ’ The other, and final, candidate for VPOF is Willie Grove, a 22 in then and I’ve been the main driving force behind it: It’s now time year old 3rd year economics student, Grove is pursuing a career in for action.” Bray believes his perseverance and determination make accounting, and-has practical work term experience in budgeting. him a capable candidate’ for President. -c At present, he is the Internal Liaison chairman of the Federation. ‘r . m

\ Gr.ohman calls for tuition increase Imprint,
by Graeme Peppler Imprint staff - Ontario Conservative Party leader Larry Grossman feels that tuition fees will have to increase over the next few years if Ontario, universities are to maintain a high level of academic excellence: Speaking to a crowd of several dozen students at Wilfrid Laurier University last week, Grossman suggested that a possible 25% increase in university tuition might be in order over the long-run to alleviate underfunding. Such an increase, he said, would be accompanied by an appropriate adjustment in OSAP policy. Talking from a pragmatic perspective, he pointed.out that as the economy grows at 2.5%, taxpayers cannot cover the increasing funding gap; therefore, students should be willing to pay extra fees to get better services and bring in new technology. At the same time, the universities should be looking to the private sector for financial assistance, says Grossman. He noted that while the Ontario govern’ment put $30 million into the new W.G. Davis building at U W, private industry only put in $10 million. This is in sharp contrast to the American college system where virtually all funding for such a project comes from the private sector, he added. Without naming him directly, Grossman criticised.the Minister of Colleges and Universities, Gregory Sorbara for not having a firm grip on his department. Decisions about university funding are coming from the Ontario Treasurer’s office, says the PC leader, who believes that’health care funding will be’taking up most of the Ontario budget, leaving little room for increases in post-secondary funding. During the discussion, Grossman spoke about his party’s fortunes over the past 12 months from the nomination of Frank Miller in January 1985 to the “Draconian consequences that were to follow*’ later in May and June when the Liberals, backed by the NDP, took office in Ontario.
Canadiaq University Press and staff TORONTO (CUP) - The administration is pitted against faculty’ members and students-are arguing among themselves at the University of Toronto whether to allow South African ambassador Glenn Babb to speak on campus. For the second time in three months at the U of T, Babb has been prevented from debating the South African situation. Last week’ students in the International Law Society withdrew an invitation for Babb to debate the use of international law in dealing with apartheid. Members of the society said their decision was not the result of bowing to pressures within and without the law school. “There.was a long and vociferous debate (within the Internationai Law Society),” said law student John Tarry. . The society’s vote was 21-11 to withdraw the invitation. “By extending him (Babb) the privilege of speaking at the university we could lend symbolic justification to apartheid,” said Tarry. “We didn’t feel we wanted to do this.” ’ 1 Four professors had earlier sought an injunction to bar Babb from speaking. They said they wanted to avoid inciting criminal action by promoting racism. At the same ti,me, 16 other faculty members sent a letter to the university president, the dean of law, and the president of the lnternational Law Society, protesting the invitation. It was to be Babb’s second visit to the university. The ambassador, in Canada since August 1, was shouted down by protesters when he tried to speak at a November debate and at one point had a wooden mace thrown at him. Despite strong opposition to-Babb’s presence, others on campus are using the principle of freedom of speech to argue that Babb should be allowed to present his views. Two law students say they will form a new society within the faculty and re-issue the invitation to Babb. Furthermore, thc*U of 7‘ administration was set to oppose the professors’application for an injunction when it went to court last Wednesday. The judge rejected the application because the invitation to Babb had been ,withdrawn, but afterwards U of 7 president George Connell staunchly defended the right of all views to be heard on university campuses. “The matter of freedom of speech is extremely important to (U 01 -J‘) the university, and indeed to any university,” Connell said at a press conference: “It is completely unacceptable to me that anyone should take steps to prevent anyone from speaking on campus regardless of their views.” lrwin Cotler, the world-famous human rights lawyerand McGill

This referendum was the third conducted by the GSA this year. The first, concerning the funding of African reliel projects, had a fair turnout, while the second, conducted to determine GSA involvement in . the Ontario and Canadian Fcderations of Students, had a minimal turnout. When asked why the Association conducted the vote, Marion explained that a fee increase supported by a referendum can be overturned only by another referendum. He stressed that the results do not bind the GSA to any action even though their by-laws call a referendum without quorum unsuccessful. The executive of the Association will meet this week to determine whether or not to implement the fee increase. “We are still committed to lunding the Ombudsman,” Marion said. 1 he referendum asked UW graduate students ifthey wished to support the Ombudsman’s office with a $1 charge per student, per term.
Last week the UW Graduate Student Association failed to get adequate response to their referendum on a proposed fee increase to financially support the U W Ombudsman’s Office. bf approximately 1,300 ballots mailed to Association members, only 187 were returned. The response represents a mere 14 per cent of the grad population and does not meet the quorum reyuirement of 25 per cent response. Of the small number of returns, 154 supported the proposed fee increase.’ “Basically, its apathy,” said GSA spokesman Michel Marion. “it’s rather dispiriting...to see that many (ballots) return.” Marion also blamed the format of the vote, a mail out referendum, and the nature ofthe issue for the poor turnout. “lf it was a contentious issue the turnout would have been higher, ” he said.

law professor who had agreed to debate Babbat U of Tsaid it would have been better to give him (Cotler) a chance to “nail Babb to the.p wall” than make Babb a victim of the freedom of speech issue. “By turning it into a free speech issue we give this guy credibility,” Cotler said. “The battle then goes on the turf of free speech rather than exposing his racism.” “I can very well appreciate the moral anguish and pain it causes people to. listen to this guy (Babb), but as someone who regards himself as being,pained by the stuff Zundel said, 1 think now after the trial it is probably better to let them speak,” Cotler said. “If it was to happen again, 1 probably wouldn’t want Zundel to be prosecuted, to not have put the Holocaust on trial,” he said. Cotler is the past president of the Canadian Jewish Congress. The professor said Canada should have terminated diplomatic status with South Africa .long ago. “then we wouldn’t have these problems,” he said. Babb himself was not available to comment.‘However, his press
“The May election results are fact and we must live with them,” accepts the Tory leader, “but 1 believe the election results represented a stand-off between the two parties. Essentially, the electorate was saying they didn’t know what they wanted.” I he Liberal surge in popularity during the election was due to some 400.000 new, young voters in Ontario, most of whom voted Liberal, says Grossman. “We didn’t lose our support, we failed to expand it.” Although he offered this excuse and others for the PC failure to sustain power, Grossman says.he is taking measures to “reform and update” his party, including several policy conferences, culminating with a major policy conference next fall. He would not be drawn into revealing what the new policies might be for fear that itcould influence the policy-forming process. With regard to the Ontario Liberal Government, Grossman says they have handled themselves weli and have passed significant legislation such as the so-called “Spills Bill”, but he feels they have put too much emphasis on making bold, tough decisions rather than on making the right decisions. Furthermore, he feels that they have failed to use common processes of consultation, yet, overall, “they have not been unsuccessful (in their duties of office).” ’ Grossman responded to questions about extra billing,. free trade, and, most notably, rent controls which were recently extended by the government. The Ontario Conservative Leader feels that both landlords’ and tenants will suffer in the long-run now that rent controls have been made retroactive to 1976 and allowable rent increases have been cut to 4 per cent from 6 per cent. Because of this legislation, landlords will no longer build and tenants will ha<e less housing from which. to choose, Grossman explained. The’legislation took effect last month.
secretary, Wetley Johanneson said the ambassador is steering clear of the fray. “We regard this as a domestic thing for the University of Toronto his general feeling is that he doesn’t want to get involved.” - Johann&on called the law society’s decision to withdraw its invitation “a sad day for freedom of speech.” “We just feel there is a great need for Canadians to get both sides of the issue.” Hc added that Babb has spoken offically many times in Canada, including appearances at Trent University and the University of Calgary, but that U of 1‘ was the only place where the ambassador has been prevented from speaking. Although Ambassador Babb was not allowed to debate at U of 1, CBC Radio did air a debate last Sunday between Babb and Toronto la! professor William Graham on whether international law applies to South Africa or whether that country’s racial policies are purely.an internal matter.
Htiu@ig” task fiwCtS hears complairits. Kevin Wood Imprint staff The City of Waterloo’s Student Housing Task Force brought their suggestions and an analysis of the city’s housing problems before a public meet‘ing on January 15th in the packed Council chambers at Waterloo City Hall. The Task Force’s policy planner and secretary, Rob Deyman, spoke’ on what the task force saw as the problems. There were six main areas which were looked at by the Task Force. They looked at affordability and the high cost 01
rental housing in KitchenerWaterloo, the issue of the enforcement of various bylaws, the quality of student housing, the impact that students have on the neighbourhoods that they live in, the question of supply versus demand with regard to living space near the campus, and finally, the problems of transportation and access to campus. The solutions offered. by the Task Force included encouraging co-op and non-profit student . housing projects by reducing lot levies and property taxes for such projects. They also recommended an increase in the number of boarding
U of S has ‘Big Enchilada’I . by Richard Sand,hurst . SASKATOON (CUP) -- The University of Saskatchewan Students Union no longer has a president. A motion to change the title of the office from “President” to “The. Big Enchilada” was passed at USSU’s 1985 General Meeting in November. U of S Engineering student Mike Jackman said he put forward the motion to remove some of the mystique from the person bearing the’intimidating title of “President.” “We now have a very accessible individual whom students .. . will be able to come and talk to because he has a bonehead name,” Jackman said after the meeting. Student council ,president (now Big Enchilada) Ian Wagner was not amused. “I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty approachable guy,” the Big Enchilada said. “How much more approachable do you want to get?” Student Council Arts representative Veronica Dtuchek said she urged people to defeat
‘the motion because few people in Saskatoon take students seriously and calling the student council .president “The Big Enchilada” would only make matters worse. Mike Fisher, Canadian Federation ‘of Students Saskatchewan executive rep, said he disagreed with Dutchek. “1 think I’m in favour of this,” Fisher said. “Anything that can fill up- this room for the most boring meeting of the year, 1 have to vote for. Let democracy be served .” The Big Enchilada said the motion was useful because it got a lot of students to attend the meeting, but urged it be defeated because it was .“ridiculous.” The motion was amended by’ Engineering rep John Melin to give the president the official title of “The Big Enchilada, professionally known as the President” because council could lose its representation on the U of S Board of Governors unless the word “President”’ was included somewhere in the official title.
houses, the lifting of the five unrelated persons occupancy bylaw with regard to larger dwellings, and a media campaign aimed at informing both landlords and tenants of their rights and obligations. . The Task Force also advised that city council talk with the Kitchener Waterloo Real Estate board concerning the occupancy bylaw. The Task Force also recommended that the university try to make on-campus housing more attractive to students. After the Task Force had made its presentation, the floor was opened up to the public. The majority of the audience
was made up of homeowners from the uptown area of Waterloo who were present to voice their concerns over declining .property values and student conduct in their neighbourhoods. The overriding concern seemed to be the question of absentee landlords who rent to students and leave them unsupervised.
7‘he suggestions made at the meeting by the Student Housing Task Force are not official as of yet, but it is expected that some official recommendations will be brought before city council within the next few months.
Epp will. be missed Frank H. Epp, professor of history at Conrad Grebel College since 1971 and president of the college from 1973 to 1979, died in KitchenerWaterloo Hospital on Wednesday, January 22. He was 56 years old. From a long career in journa1is.m and Christian ministry, he came to the teaching profession as one intensely interested in knowledge of the past and in using that knowledge and the wisdon it afforded to urge the present generation to faithful Christian responses to contemporary issues and events. Frank Epp taught courses in Mennonite .history, Canadian Minorities, and the Middle East. During his first two years at Conrad Grebel. he also carried part-time responsibility to edit the Mennonite Reporter, a news and opinion tabloid which he helped found in 197 1. When Conrad Grebel’s first president, Winfield Frets, announced his retirement, Epp
quickly became a candidate, receiving overwhelming support in the faculty as well as in the constituency which operates the college. He assumed the duties on July 1, 1973 and continued for two terms until June 30, 1979. Epp’s years as president were “marked by student growth, significant program .initiatives, and facilitv expansion, as well as by the satisfaction and the difficulties often associated with rapid changes. “We pay tribute to one who had a vision for the possibilities of this college and gave many intense years of energy and time to help build the facult y and the programs of Conrad Grebel College,” said Rodney Sawatsky, acting president. “We will miss Frank Epp on our faculty and as an advocate in much wider circles of influence on behalf of peace and justice, the insights gained from history, and the inspiration toward faithful responses to the issues and concerns 01’ the day,.”

Students are residents too Last week l attended a public meeting that was held to review the work of the Student Housing Task Force. The Task Force’s secretary made a brief presentation and the floor was opened to statements and questions from the ’ audience. With the exception of four people, all of the over twenty speakers launched themselves on tirades about the evils of living with students. These speakers complained that students, when left unsupervised by a landlord quickly reverted to “near animal behaviour”The chief complaints were about loud music, unkept lawns and unshovelled snow. Several accused students of theft and vandalism. One man gave an account of how he got into a shouting match with a pair of students a few days after his neighbour’s window was broken. He assumed that since the window was broken during frosh week, students must have been responsible. After I asked him a few questions, I found out it had been him who had started the argument by making several rude comments to a pair of students as they passed by his house. The truly shocking part, however, was that this man feared that his house would be trashed by vengeful students. Amazingly, he was not the only one who claimed; to be fearful of students carrying out vendettas against someone who complained about them. Many people said that they were afraid to complain to students about noise or unkept homes because they feared that the students would take revenge somehow. Personally, I think this is more than a little bit of paranoia. We students are future accountants *and engineers, not the Mafia or the Hell’s Angels.
‘The people who were most vocal in their complaints were what are commonly called, to use a horribly overworked term, Yuppies. Most of these people were’ themselves students less than fifteen years ago and yet they begrudge us our chance to be as free as they were., Many of them asked why the police don’t do more about noise and illegally parked cars. They also said that they never called the police to complain about noise or illegal parking. In answer, I can only suggest that perhaps the police have slightly more important things to do than to patrol residential subdivisions, twenty-four hours a day looking for those villians who play their stereos a bit too loud or park improperly. Besides, we students are not the only ones guilty of such offences. Many of these folks were quick to point out that they were “residents and taxpayers” and that they had certain rights. Well, Mr. and Mrs. Two-cars-three-bedroommanicuredlawns-and, high-paying-jobs, I live here and pay taxes too and I have the same rights as you. I just can’t afford to hire the kid next door to shovel my walk and cut my lawn the same as you can. In fact, between the high cost of tuition and the astronomical rent some of your wealthier friends are charging me, I can’t even afford a decent snow shovel, never mind a lawnmower. do make noise and host the Perhaps students occassional loud all-night party, but as one gentleman, who was kind enough to speak on our behalf, pointed out, we are not the only ones to do this.

King’s goals n.ot yet realized The many attemps by U.S. civil rights activists to have a national holdiay to commerate Martin Luther King, Jr. were finally realized this week. January 20th will be the day each year that the great man will be specially remembered and honoured. In the struggle to gain equality for blacks, King was instrumental in clearly pointing out how far short America fell of its professed ideals of liberty and equality for all. His eloquence and dedication made him a natural leader in this fight. And King knew he was in for the long haul. As he told the assembled throng in front of the Lincoln Monument in Washington in 1963, his wish was that-his children would. be judged “not by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.” Today, King’s vision seems simple enough, a goal within reach. However, King lived at at time when much of the U.S. had its own form of apartheid - the “separate but equal” principal that legitimized segregation of schools, buses,. restaurants, public facilities, etc. And seperate usually meant unequal. King, and those who followed him in fighting such injustice encountered violent racist mobs, police’ truncheons .and dogs, fire hoses, and, quite often, gun shots, and bombs. Many gave their lives to the struggle, including King himself in 1968. Thr.ough all the abuse he experienced King stuck firmly to his pacifist convictions. He chose not to mimic the violence of the state and the many bigots who hated him with a vengeance. This certainly took more courage than taking up arms to achieve fundamental justice. Since King’s death, substantial gains in racial equality have been made. Equality of opportunity, however, does not yet exist for U.S. blacks. Sixteen per cent of American blacks areI unemployed and one-third of all blacks live I !
below the poverty line. And racism in both the U.S. and Canada, although not blatant as it one was, is nevertheless subtle and extant. Along with fighting the scourge of apartheid in South Africa, we shold also make a conscious effort to come to terms with and overcome racism in our own backyard. What the Martin Luther King holiday should do is provide a constant reminder that King’s goals are not yet realized, at home nor abroad. Rick

Easier to sell the’ public on high-tech education To the editor: . In response to Doug Thompson’s bass ackwards (but forwardlooking’?) editorial last week, I would like to make the following points. UW President Douglas Wright is in a difficult position with regards to finding sufficient funding to allow his vision of this university to be realized. His actions over the last year have made it clear that in a time of crisis his first commitment is to the university and that a commitment to individual student issues is somewhat lower down on the list. Maybe that is the way it shouM be, since he was elected as President of the University and not President of the Federation of Students. On the other hand, Dr. Wright seems to underestimate the importance of students in the university, and 1 suggest that this may be remembered when he starts to eall and ask for alumni donations. If Thompson thinks that Waterloo stresses elitism, then perhaps he should visit Queen’s or Western for a weekend. 1 believe Waterloo is attempting to stress excellence, which may lead to an elitist attitude, but is certainly not the same as stressing elitism. What exactly is exotic high technology training’? This wouldn’t be the outdated, overused student CMS facility would it? Very few technologies can be considered exotic in today’s world, and the few legitimate contenders are so expensive that you will not see them at Waterloo for at least ten years, by which time they will have moved from the exotic to the outdated category. What consititutes an exotic price? How much does it cost, in Canadian dollars, to attend a private, world-class institution in the States such as MIT or CMU? The answer would humble you. Immediate accessibility to higher education is often taken for granted in Canada, and especially in Ontario, when in reality it is a privilege that must be payed for by someone. In the past this someone has largely been the taxpayer via the government. If this
IS Doug-Thompson closet communist?
To the editor: On reading the January 17th editorial, “UW’s tactics bass ackwards”, 1 had to flip to the front page to double-check that it didn’t say Chevron. First we got Carol Fletcher’s needless, self-congratulatory gloating, and now Doug Thompson’s “make the rich pay” rhetoric. An editorial should at least have the facts straight: Dr. Wright did not admit to “bluffing”, but, rather, announced that the fee strikers would be provisionally registered pending the Ministry’s decision. Having been involved with the issue since Winter! 85, I can also say that there were no big celebrations on part of the students at this point. Next, Mr. Thompson claims that Wright is willing “to exploit the students and sacrifice university accessibility --- anything for a buck”. Does Mr. Thompson realize that this university needs those dollars? Has he noticed our extremely high student-faculty ratio, seen Math classes in the PAC, experienced WATSTAR lineups at 3 a.m., tripped over cracks in the walkways, seen the portables scattered over the campus? Or has he been wearing rose-tinted glasses of naivete’? - Mr. Thompson says the universities are ignoring other social needs, but apparently does not realize that for the past 15 years, real government expenditures have been rising, while real university funding has been falling. I don’t-claim hospitals or pensions don’t need money, but higher education has been ignored by the government far too long. “Poor people...pay proportionately more for universities?” Oh, really, Mr. Thompson? What’s your source for that statement, the Anti-Imperialist Alliance? As most people know, Canada has a progressive taxation system, which means that taxation rates go up with income. An engineering graduate might pay 4Oyc in tax, while someone near the poverty line would have a rate of below 1076. Poor and middle-class people are also eligible for OSAP, whereas the rich are not. In any case, taxes do pay for 85vc of the cost of university education. The middle- and upper-class people pay for .the bulk of this, as it justly should be. And finally, Mr. Thompson would like everyone to study Arts and not “high-tech job training” because “we are not a poor country”. Oh, it would indeed be wonderful if everyone would --- and could --- go to university just for enlightenment. However, some oi’ us prefer to learn about high technology and study engineering, computer science or optometry. Just as importan+ly, we can’t afford to ignore technical programs at universities. Why’? Imagine, Mr. Thompson, if you will, a country filled with liberal arts graduates. Yes, everyone would have a well-rounded education, but who would do our research, do our software and hardware development, design and build our factories, buildings, roads, cars, even bicycles? Are we to go back to the pre-industrial era, or should we become a U.S, colony supplying them with raw materials in exchange for energy, transportation, medical services &d entertainment‘? Please, Mr. Thompson, do not begin a.dvocatirtg a Marxist Utopia unless you have some realistic suggestions. Canadians would not want to live in another Albania!
channel of funding becomes unsympathetic to the plight of universities, then one of two alternatives will occur. The personal cost of higher education will increase, or the quality of-the education you receive will decrease. This is a simple state of either/ or situation, and no amount of bellyaching or cauterwalling will change this reality. In Wright’s vision, the university is just another device to help Canada catch up in the current world-wide high technology race. If we do catch up then everyone will be better of’f; if we continue to lag behind the leaders, then everyone will be worse off. This applies to rich and poor, educated and uneducated alike. The social, cultural, and political advantages of higher learning derive mainly from an exposure to a variety of viewpoints and an enhanced ability to logically assess these new ideas. Beyond Thompson’s stereotyped presumptions, there is nothing that stops any serious student from sharing in these advantages. 1admit with no shame that my course of study has prepared me for a variety of high-tech jobs, but does Thompson seriously believe that my neuron paths have been so overloaded with double integrals of Guassian functions that that is all I can think about? Without question our undeserved bounty of natural resources, Canada would rank among the poorest nations on earth. Even with these resources, our yearly national debt is around $35 billion and the yearly interest on our total national debt is over $26 billion. We
“This is a distinct philosophy of mine,” says Linus in Charles Shultz’s comic strip Peanuts. “No problem is so big or so complicated that it can’t be ran away from.” Rings true, doesn’t it? When you look back’on this or that situation you’ve lived through, when all the subtleties have been forgotten, the stance you took was either fight or flight, loyalty or desertion, pass or fail. There are those, of course, who say that failure is pre-programmed, that life is a cheat and a disappointment, and that every new opportunity is a set-up. Like the character in . Ralph Ellision’s Invisible Man, who gets turfed out of the black college he has been attending. in the deep South and is sent to New York to seek his fortune.‘He is given a sealed envelope with a “reference” from the president of the college, but he finds he cannot land a job. Finally, in frustration, he tears open the envelope and reads the reference for himself. It says, “Keep this nigger boy running.” There are, and always have been, pessimists, none bitterer than the Preacher of Ecclesiastes: “The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor the bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favour to the men of skill .. . Like fish which are taken in an evil net, and like birds which are caught in a snare, so the sons of men are snared at an evil time, when it suddenly falls upon them.” (8: 11,12) And then there are those who started out as optimists, and somewhere along the way . .. Novelist Kurt V speech to a 1970 graduating class told what had him. “1 used to be an optimist,” he said. “This w boyhood in Indianapolis . .. Scientific truth was go

And then 1 had to lie to her every time she threatened “I saved our marriage many times by exclaiming, ‘Wait! Wait! 1 see light at the end of the tunnel at last!’ And I wish 1 could bring light to your tunnels today. My wife begged me to brirrg you light, but there is no light. Everything is going to become unimaginably worse, and never get better again. If‘ 1 lied to you about that, you would sense that I’d lied to you, and that would be another cause for gloom. We have enough _ causes for gloom.” SO we do. There’s all the difference in the world between Robert Lowell’s “If there’s a light at theend of‘the tunnel, it’s the light of’ an oncoming train,” and Capt. John Merry’s “‘When the sky falls, an abundance of larks may be catched.” And the difference is this: pessimism is a dead end, whereas there’s always the possibility with optimism that your outlook may transform the situation. ,In the dark December of 1942 in Germanv, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote to a friend: “The essence of optimism is not it’s view of the present, but the fact that it inspires life and hope ’ when all others around give in. It enables a man to hold his head high when everything seems to go wrong .. . optimism ever be despised, even

are an overpiviliged country that has backed itself into an economic corner by funding an endless tiring of uneconomic programs that we couldn’t and can’t afford. (Temporarily ignoring the nonmonetary benefits of higher education, not that univeristy funding is an economic program if the taxes realized from an educated public exceed the taxes realized from an uneducated public by an amount which covers the university funding). The high priority currently being placed on practical economic return may be an unfortunate impingement on your ivory tower world, but practical ’ economics is the nature of reality. Finally, Thompson’s assertion that a study of the arts can provide something more important than money would generally be regarded as true. However, 1 would suggest that perhaps the benefits of arts are not as universally desirable, or as limited to the faculty of arts , as you might imagine. A quick glance through the want-ads would seem’ to indicated that most companies agree with me. In addition, 1 believe that it would be easier to “sell the Ontario public” on the benefits of educating one computer analyst versus the benefits of educating one (insert arts discipline of your choice). If we are to listen to the Ontario public, as Thompson proposes, then we will be shifting a lot of money away from the arts and into the more practical programs that he seems to despise.

While income tax is progressive, direct taxes, like the 14% federal sales tax, the 7% provincial sales tax, import duties (averaging 30% on anything imported), gasoline taxes, etc., mean that those who must spend all or most of their income for basic necessities, spend proportionately more of their income on taxes than those whose income is sufficient to allow them to write-off, protect or invest income in tax-shelters. Thus, on average, the lower one’s income, ’ the more of it goes to tax. ,

All istates resort to violence To the editor:
by Anne Fleming
As always, when 1am confronted with presenting a precise definition, 1 turn first to the dictionary: fe/min/ism n. advocacy of women’s rights on ground of equality of the sexes. This definition may be sufficient for the Concise Oxford English Dictionary, but it is somewhat too concise for me. Feminism is, for me, the theory from which the women’s movement stems; the women’s movement is feminism in action. The women’s movement moves through three basic levels: subtly, in one-to-one conversation, visibly in public protest and celebrations, and in lobbying for political change. But both feminism and the women’s movement are difficult to pin down to one neat little definition, for the, women’s movement is an eclectic movement. However, I hope to give you an idea of what this “feminist crap” (as my brother calls it) is all about. The women’s movement is a struggle to end the seemingly interminable domination of the world by men. It incorporates an attempt to redefine the world in women’s terms, on the basis of women’s experience, not men’s interpretations of women’s experience. Virginia Woolf, in A Room of One’s Own, voices the problem of trying to study women’s experience. So much of what has been written about women has been written by men: Have you any notion of how many books are written about women in the course of one year? Have you any notion how many are written by men’? (p. 27) Yes, feminism is about equal pay, equal opportunity, equal recognition for equal talents, but most of all, 1 think feminism is about women’s rights to control our own bodies, our minds, our education, our definition of what is important - in short, to control our own lives. It is about our right to choose what to wear, what to say, how to act, where,and when to travel by day or night, if and when to have children, to pursue any career or trade - WITHOUT harrass,ment, emotional blackmail, guilt, fear, or intimidation. Because women, as all people, come from diverse backgrounds, the women’s movement needs to be an all-inclusive movement, to bridge gaps of class, colour and culture. And 1 think, more and more, it does. Perhaps the best example I have yet seen of how inclusive of all women the women’s movement can be is the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival: - Admission is on a sliding scale, allowing for women of differing incomes. - All performances are interpreted (often exquisitely, 1’might add) for the hearing impaired. - All events and workshops are accessible to the differently abled (i.e. women in wheelchairs, on crutches, -with braces and canes, etc.) : “Chemical Free” areas, designated free of tobacco, drugs and alcohol, are provided for women who need or desire a “them free” environment. - Twenty-four hour emotional and sober support tents are maintained throughout the festival. - All the work at the festival - food prepartion and clean-up, garbage removal, shuttle services, child-care is shared by the participants. Most feminist concerts, lectures and conferences also offer wheelchair access, free childcare and interpretaion for the hearing impaired. What 1 would like to see is all such events taking minorities’ concerns into active consideration. Dale Spender handily sums up the need and desire of the . women’s movement to be all-inclusive: . ..if we are to have a common feminist framework then it must be all things to all women, it must!be able to take into account what all women know and understand of the world even when they know and understand contradictory things. There can be no exclusions within a feminist framework. And the only way to achieve such a framework is to formulate one that is multi-dimensional, which can contain many truths, and which can accomodate many partial accounts. (Dale Spender, For the Record, p.4) Feminism is many things to many people. What is it to yal‘?
Federation secretaries show a lack of respect for students To the editor:
Recently, during the last couple of weeks, 1 had submitted a resume to be completed by the WORDS typing service in the Federation of Students office. The service 1 received was both discourteous and not factual. You can no longer have your resume done on heavier, creamy coloured paper -which the form they have you fill out states that you may-and not once did the two secretaries in the office find the manners to say “please” or “thank-you”. Furthermore, this is not the first time that it has happened. I have been in the Federation of Student’s office before and received short and impatient treatment, as well, 1 have seen many others treated in the same manner. Perhaps an argument could be made that the Federation does not have to provide these services, but 1 object. My money is as good as anyone else’s and, because of that, 1 demand a certain level of respect while doing business with people; especially when 1 am showing such respect in return. Also, if it were not for people like myself who are willing to pay for services such as WORDS, the two secretaries in that office would not necessarily have a job to show lack of concern in. Over the past four months 1 have liked to believe that of all the organizations on campus the Federation of Students is the one that we, the students, could count on for information and understanding This has not been my experience. Consequently, 1 personally, have decided to take my business somewhere other than WORDS. i Angela P. Googlt 1B Mathematics
Stephen Noar, in his letter to the editor (Imprint, Jan. 17, 1986, p. 5) makes the point that the PLO is dedicated to violence. I would first like to say that the Swiss Army is dedicated to violence. In the case that Switzerland is invaded, her people forced from the arable land and into positions of second class citizens in a racist regime. the Swiss army has taken upon itself to prevent such occurances by any necessary means, usually in the case of armed attack, a response of violence. This inclination to violence amongst the Swiss no doubt nullifies their claim to freedom and sovereignity and allows=any interested party--with the backing of the appropriate superpower and/ or power--to displace the Swiss and appropriate their land. My point is that naturally the PLO is dedicated to violence. The Palestinians suffered, and suffer, severe injustices, and they are exercising the right of any people to defend themselves against injustices and oppression. If the law does not suffice and is flouted by ones’ enemies, then the only recourse left is (besides placid ,acceptance which only encourages such things) military action Mossad, the Israeli secret police, operates in many guises, including that- of assassin, outside lsraeli borders (remember a little massacre in Lebanon a couple years ago’?). 1t is then hypocritical to biame the
PLO for striking external targets. 1am not supporting the morality of external targets (which thePL0 proper have foresworn) but am merely pointing out that both sides play this game. With regards to internal targets, lsrael has proved, if it was ever in doubt, that a large fascistic feeling motivates its existence. The 1948 war was full of terrible atrocities committed by Israeli terrorist groups (lrgun and the Stern Gang--Menacham Begin was a member) and today lsrael is listed in Amnesty International’s 1985 report for brutality, illegal detention, and torture of Palestinians. The PLO, as representatives of the Palestinians, have a responsibility to protect Palestinians in any possible way with the goal of creating a just, non-racist state such as does not exist now. As well, Mr. Noar’s unsupported allegation that the PLO was responsible for the Abu Nidal attacks (which it expressed deplorante over) makes no sense if read carefully and is only another example of a fortunately ineffective smear campaign of Zionists who wish to discredit PLO leader Yaser Arafat, so-that they don’t have to worry about peace (and justice). Mr. Noar should’be ashamed to put his name to such wanton misrepresentations. Greg Hobson History/ English
Engineers were sympathetic but did little to help To the editor:
1 wish to respond to the ‘Fletcher Bashing’ that sprang up in last week’s issue 0: the Imprint. Yes, Carol’s editorial was strongly worded, just as three of her adversaries’ letters were. Carol was fuelled by a feeling of elation due to victory over an insidious adversary. 1 really don’t blame her. We all know that bland and moderate editorials don’t make it to the editorial page, do they? Carol’s statement regarding the EngSoc’s applaudable Big Sisters charity activities was very obviously not meant to demean these events in any way. 1 am interested in knowing from Ben Wong why Carol should have to be concerned with alienating the sympathetic engineers. 1 am sure that there are many; only proble’m is, they’ve never done anything I’ve ever heard or read about.to help reduce the sexist and racist content of the ex-Enginews. Carol has. They, have never renounced Enginews publically, written disapproving letters or made efforts to join the other concerned groups on campus who
have been actively involved over the years. Carol has. What does she owe them? To Jouko Haapanen and Thomas Jacobsh, 1 must respond that women are concerned about sexist literature (especially that which exhibits overtones of misogyny) because they have to deal with the men who have been influenced, consciously or unconsciously, by this sort of adolescent image of women and their bodies. 1 would be pleased to discuss this theory further if you are both still confused by the connection between your “few harmless, good laughs” and the kind of discrimination (physical, emotional and economic)that women have to deal with in their everyday lives. My extension number is 6305. Finally, 1 wish to add that Carol is neither an imbecile, a fanatic, intolerant, of narrow opinion nor a disagreeable person. Thomas (who used all these terms to describe Carol), on the other hand, seems to be a little intolerant. Angela Evans, Women’s Corn missioner
lack the spirit to be human beings
To the editor:
In the front page article on fifth-generation computers (Imprint January, 17) E. Manning suggested using the term “ability to reason” rather than “intelligence” in connection with computers. This changes the so-called “artificial intelligence” assigned to computers to “artificial ability to reason”. The latter shows the irrationalism of computer terminology, for reasoning is the art which makes man a free thinking being who can not be imitated by deathlike computer machinery. 1 agree with E. Manning, however, that computers are not a threat to humanity, because only man himself has this capability. But in assigning human faculties to computers invites treating humans like machines--and this is today’s nightmare of humanity. As an example of the difference between man and machine, consider the copying of a letter by a human being and by a computer. She or he will read the letter, interpret its meaning, and type it;
whcrcas, a computer may have a visual pattern matching device for data input, automatically process the data through predeterminate programming, and type it. Thus, the computer does not,read like humans and has no understanding of English, but the typing is the same. The same end result, however, does not make a computer human--nor does it make a human a computer. Christians accept that men, women, and children have a spirit, and Jesus said that man reasons in his heart. This means that reasoning or understanding can not be separated from the other spiritual faculties which fill the human heart with will, faith, charity, knowledge of good and evil, imagination, intuition, etc.--all 01 which makes us free and human. Thus, a computer may produce things which humans do, but machine operations can never be human actions and vice versa.

Dave Boxwell’s spirit will live on in those who knew him Dave Boxwell, operator and owner of the University of Waterloo on-campus Pizza Palace and of the Lakeshore Pizza Palace, passed away Friday, January 17th at approximately 7:30,pm, having suffered a massive coronary while driving his truck southbound on Phillip St. He was forty years old. I Dave operated the on-campus Pizza Palace (located in VI) for I5 years. 1 had the honour of working for him for three and a half of those years. The closeness, love and respect that 1 developed for Dave during that time is immeasurable. Dave gave me many-things during that time that will be with me my entire life. His support, compassion and pride toward me, no matter how badly 1 was feeling about my life, gave me strength and confidence in myself and in the way 1viewed other people. These are things that will continue to guide me for the rest of my life. Dave’s good humour and good nature allowed me to see the most wonderful side of human nature; his sadness and pain allowed me to see the injustice of many things in our world. The constant struggle
of‘ his life overwhelmed me, but his power and tenacity gave me hope, and a strength that 1 had been unable to develop on my own. Dave and Lynda (Dave’s wife and companion for 21 years) had more than their share of adversity, but their love for each other and I their inherent goodness always seemed to allow them to philosophically brush each other off, and rebuild their lives. The love 1feel for these two people and the honour in having shared in their lives, is invaluable to mc.‘ 1 always though that Dave was indestructible. 1 always thought that he would be there for me no matter how distant our lives were. Although 1 have lost Dave the man, 1 will never lose Dave the spirit, and in that sense 1 guess he is indestructable.! will say goodbye to Dave in the flesh, but 1 will never say goodbye to his spirit, or to the love that 1 felt for him and that 1 will always feel for him. Rest in peace, Dave, and know that you have made my life immeasurably better for having been a part of it. Love
Being gay makes us no different than anyone else in memory of Paul Paul died tonight, but 1 didn’t know him though 1 might have, if things were different, but they’re not. You see, Paul had AIDS.

SANDWICHES by Lars Wilke Imprint staff On January 29, the Federation of Students, in conjunction with sFvera1 of the university’s ethnic clubs, will be staging the I986 “Cultural Caravan.” 1t promises to be an enjoyable evening, providing UW students an opportunity to experience first-hand the many cultures resident on campus. Represented will belthe Carribean, Chinese, Indian, Asean, Korean,\ Jewish and Palestinian Heritage student associations. Scott Forrest, one of the Federation’s organizers of Cultural Caravan, says “Caravan will be an excellent chance for people to see all the cultures that exist here on campus.” The Cultural Caravan, mo-
deled loosely on Toronto’s annual multi4zultural festival, was attempted for the first time last winter. Despite organizational problems, attributable to inexperience, reaction was generally positive among the approximately 1,000 participants. “it was definitely a worthwhile event” explains Frank van Biesen, who, partook in last year’s activities. This year’s organizers have the advantage of a report, compiled at the end of the last carathe pitfalls van, outlining involved in running the event. In this way, none of last year’s mistakes should be repeated. The 1986 Cultural Caravan differs frond the previous one primarily because it will all be housed under one roof (specifi-
cally Fed Hall’s roof). Last year’s Caravan was spread out across various locations on campus. The decision to change was made after criticisms were made of the Caravan’s being too spread out and of it impinging on too many established activities (i.e. turning regular Bomb Shelter patrons away). A snowstorm also made travel between displays unpleasant. Having the events all in one building will also eliminate the need for a “passport”. A $3 entry ticket will suffice in this case. Among the many activities planned will be a multicultural fashion show, a Chinese dragon dance, martial arts displays from both the Korean and Chinese student associhtions and
kosher wine sampling compliments of the Jewish Students Association. All of the cultures represented will> be offering examples of their unique cuisines. Most will aslo be treating spectators to performances of dance and folk singing. Each group will be providing part of the music played during the evening, a mixture of both traditional and modern. To end it all, the Caribbean students are planning to have all of Fed Hall on its feet jumping and dancing to the sounds of steel drums. Tickets for Cultural Caravan will be available at the Fed Office or from any of ihe involved groups. If last year’s sell-out is anyM. indication, tickets will be moving quickly, so if you are planning on attending, now is a good time to buy.
FINAL INVENTORY CLEARANCE SALE
by Cindy Long Consider the sandwich; a simple concept. If you buy them every day at one of our cafeterias, you’ll pay anywhere from one to two dollars. If you make then at home and bring them with your, you pay about forty cents to a dollar depending on what what you put in them and how much of it. The variations are endless: Bread: Italian, French, white, whole wheat, cracked wheat, light rye, dark rye, Dimpflmeier (in a class of its own!), pumpernickel, raisin bread, kaisers, rolls, buns (in the fresh baked goods case at Zehr’s), and pitas. Cheese: havarti, cheddars, brick, Swiss, Gouda, Edam, Vache qui Rit (who also make a cheese called Babybel which is delicious), Colby, cream cheeses, cottage cheese, etc., etc. Vegetables: cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuces, olives, pickles, onions, celery or alfalfa sprouts go well in sandwiches. Meats: Tuna, salmon, sliced meats, chicken, roast beef, or sausages. (I rarely believe the media, so 1 still buy tuna). Extras: mayonnaise, barbecue sauces, Worcestershire Sauce, chili sauce, ketchup, relish, mustard,’ hot peppers, salt, pepper or any other spices you like. Don’t forget our childhood buddy, peanut butter. It goes with jams, honey, lettuce, banana, apple or celery. Try mixing tuna with mayo, barbecue sauce and onion and topping it with a slice of havarti. Hard-boiled eggs, mayo, onion and celery makes a good egg salad. Cream cheese and olives goes together well (Thanks Beth). Raisin bread tastes excellent with Babybel cheese. Of course, raisin bread tastes excellent any time, but is a bit expensive. Open up a p’ita and stuff it like a taco with cheese, veggies, meat gr all three. Eat it cold or heat it in the microwave in the C.C. Imagine a cucumber and cottagecheese sandwich with mawand bacon bits (or don’t). Obviously, some combinations are more appealing than others. Some sound horrid, but taste great. Others . .. . well, even I won’t try a former roommate’s suggestion of onion, mustard and peanut butter. The point is that people often ignore sandwiches because they think they’ve exhausted the variations and are bored with bologna (Why isn’t it spelled “Baloney’?). Ten minutes in the porning can save money at lunch. Buy your own apples, balk some brownies one day, and with lunch, all you’ll need to buy is a drink. 1 believe it is important not to separate ourselves too much from our own survival. How many of you would be incredibly put out if the ML cafeteria closed for a week? I’d love to be able to tell people what’s on sale each week, but ‘I type the column a week ahead of time, so I don’t know yet. You can check the Record or the Chronicle on Wednesdays and plan around that. Also, if you have an inexpensive and simple recipe for something good that you wouldc’t mind sharing, drop it off at the Imprint office. 1’11 try it. If it works, I’ll include it in a future column. Don’t hesitate to be adventurous when you prepare food. It makes life interesting, if not always delicious. .

If implemented, the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission, which now co-ordinated most of these functions on a regional basis, would be reduced to a clearing house for data on education in the region. While the MPHEC has consistently called for an increase in’ provincial funding for education and small increases in tuition fees, Nova Scotia’s provincial government has consistently ignored its recommendations. Blewett says there’ll be few disputes between the government and
The commission also recommends foreign students pay 100 per cent of their costs and that out-of-province students have their share paid by their provincial government. The philosophy that students pay the real cost’of their education also means higher fees for students in expensive programmes like computer science. The report isn’t entirely negative. it does recommend increases in programmes for part-time students and more extension programmes for the community. However, Blewett is even skeptical about this. “1 know I’m being cynical,” she said. “But 1 can’t help but think they recommended it because they know there will be fewer people able to affort to go full-time.” Nova Scotia’s student leaders complained about thecommission from its beginning. The government appointed an actress and wife of a prominent Tory, a dairy company executive, and a losing Tory candidate but refused to appoint any students, faculty members or university administrators. “If they exclude three people biased in favour of education, ihey should exclude three people biased in favour of business,” said Peter Kavanagh, the then SUNS executive officer. Blewett says she hopes the government won’t touch any of the report’s recommendations, but because they paid $500,000 _to produce it, she admits that it’s unlikely. “Tom Mclnnes (the education minister) says his first priority is setting up the council on education in Nova Scotia. That’s the beginning of the end,” said Blewett.

Feminist theologians .differ.on Christ Lesa Beret Imprint staff “Feminist theology can be described as a religion of social change,” said Dr. Amanda Porterfield, of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Syracuse. Porterfield spoke on “Feminism as a New Religion” at Wilfrid Laurier’s Paul Martin Centre on Wednesday January 14 to a varied audience of 35.
No&-traditional careers .
Not all liberal arts graduates become- lawyers or -teachers, and not all math graduates become computer scientists. A “Brown Bag” Seminar on careers sponsored by the St. Jero’me’s ‘College Alumni Association plans to show the non-traditional career paths *chosen by two recent College’ grads in those fields. . The seminar is’entitiled BA, BMath and Medical School: The Right Prescription. It will take place on Wednesday, January 29, 1986 in the Common Room at St. Jerome’s’ College from II:30 am. until 12:20. Admission is free of charge and students ‘are asked to bring only their lunch and their questions. Refeshments will be available. Featured speakers are Rosanne Pellizari (BA ‘78), a third year medical student at McMaster University,. atid Dr; Bill Komer (BMath ‘85) a recent grad of the University of Western Ontario School of Medicine. Since her graduation from an Arts program at St. Jerome’s, Rosanne Pellizari has worked in community health centres in *Darjeeling, India, arid on a Northern Ontario Indian Reserve whose water resdurces were polluted with radioactive waste: Her interest in health care was stimulated by these first-hand experiences with a startling lack of proper nutritiocand-health care. _ “1 felt that these people had poor health because they were poor,: she says. “At the same time, 1 knew that to help effec. tively,l needed more sk’ills.” ’ Married with two children and living in Hamilton, Rosannne’s medical studies dovetail with her social justice concerns. She is a member of Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Medical Reform Group of Ontario, Bill Komer enteied the Mathematics program at St. Jerome’s in 1979 as the recipient of the prestigious Founder’s Scholarship. His aptitude for math and science enabled him to complete a three-year degree in ‘two years. In 1981 he was l/4 credit. short of earning his BMath degree. Since he was planning on medicine anyway, he applied to Western’s Medical School and later had the missing l/4 credit transferred from this medical1 program to his math degree. He found. himself in the unusual position of earning .both his MD and BMath degrees in the , same year. He is now interning at London’s Victoria Hosbital and hopes to pursue his interest in psychiatry and internal medicine. Format for the seminar. includes a brief lo-15 minute talk by each speaker followed by a question period with students. This seminar isthe fourth in a
well-attended series sponsored by the st. Jerome’s College Alumni Association. A fifth Seminar, Liberal ‘Arts and the Media, is scheduled for Wednesday, February 26, 1986, and features Paul Bowen (BA ‘8 I) of Global *Television News.

Feminist theology is a “new” religion that has recently evolved in the United States. The emphasis of the lecture was on understanding the basic concFpts and the development of the .religion. One way to understand feminist theology is to interpret it as a “revitalization movement”, consisting of deliberate, conscidus, organized efforts. by members of society to create a more satisfying culture. Porterfield suggested that the development of feminist theology was precipitated by the ’50s and ’60s which was a time of Cold War and high stress fo’r the individual. During the late and early ‘7Os, stereotypical differences between men and women were emphagized,. creating a polarity. The era was one of disillusion, cultural distortion, and cultural division. Feminist theology evalved from this division between men and women in an effort to change American social sturdtures. “Feminist theology imb’ues the feminist drive for social change with holiness,” said Porterfield. Porterfield then deicribed important aspects of the philosophy of feminist theology. Leading feminist theologists believe that. the western patriarchal society is deteriorating, and express the hope that a new set of social structures will develop. They reject the% predpminant ways of western culture because they believe that people are victimized by the structures of western.culture.‘Feminist theologists express a reverence of the natural world, having respect for-the purities and powers in nature. The belief in nature functions in feminist theelogy like the belief in God functions in other reli-
gions; the idealized picture of the world ‘provides inspiration. Because of the connotations of power over others, the idea of -supernatural power is completely rejected by the religion; in particular, Christ’s “supernatural rescue” of lesser people. However, theologists differ in their ideas about,Christ as a religious figure. Some reject Christ altogether; others believe that, although the traditional, supernatural Christ is,a perverse understanding of the Bible, he is a positive image of liberated humanity, and should be considered a human who sees others equally and with dignity. Porterfield attempted to assess the success of feminist theology in terms of its success as a “revitalization movement”. Characteristically, the members of a successful movement are able to adapt to overcome opposition. When members resort to fighting opposition, the movemeilt fails. Porterfield commented that while some feminist theologists have engaged in debate.which has resulted in combat with qpposition, others have made adaptive ventures: Historians and biblical critics work to uncover.patriarchal editing to the Bible, to restore truth, and to reconstruct the JudaeoLChristian tradition in Biblical terms to highlight female roles and attributes. Although feminist theology has effected somk behavioral changes, said Porterfiefd, it has not yet achieved culturil iransfor-, mation, the end result of a revitalization movement. Feminist theologists ‘need to adapt to. include more members of soCiety in order to satisfy their -desire for transfoimation.

Trudeau era examined Gary Timoshenko Pierre Trudeau has never failed to arouse strong emotions in Canadians. From the War Measures Act to wage and price controls; from the near separation of Quebec to the repatriation of our consitution, he tested Canada’s limits. For better or worse, he left his indelible mark on all of us. Last Saturday night crowds packed Siegfried Hall to hear Mark Lalonde and Peter Desbarats, discuss “The Trudeau Years”. Sponsored by the St. Jerome’s Alumni Association, it was a formal appraisal of Canada‘s‘ “most memorable” prime minister. Marc Lalonde, a long-time cabinet minister, friend and aide to Trudeau, was a last minute replacement for an ailing Gerard Pelletier. Lalonde’s presentation seemed to prove ttiat old politicians never die. He -dealt extensively with the accomplishments of the Trudeau government. Desbarats commented that it sounded like

we were back in an election. Lalonde stressed that the Trudeau government was active, not passive. Trudeau stopped terrorism in Quebec with the implementation of the War Measures Act and his active role in the referendum played a major part in .keeping Cariada unified.

Lalonde said he was reluctant to take the job from his friend Gerard Pelletier, but when he found out he would be speaking against Peter Desbarats, he couldn‘t refuse. “After many years on the receiving end, this was my chance to fight back”. In return, Desbarats said that he thought he would be in for an easy time with the mildmannered Pelletier, but now he was up against “the steel-trap mind of Marc Lalonde”.
As for Trudeau’s political accomplishments, Desbarats also commented on Trudeau’s “unerring understanding of QuAlthough Trudeau e bet”. helped defeat Quebec separatism, Desbarats felt Trudeau encouraged the growth of the Western separatist movement. This was due to Trudeau’s inability to “relate on an emo-
Despite the rivalry between the speakers, they we;e in agreement that Pierre Trudeau was an admirable prime minister. Both also added that it may be too early for a final assessment of the Trudeau years because we are still feeling the effect. But, said Desbarats, “It is safe to say he will be remembered as one of our greatest prime minis- ’ ters”.
I St.udents’complain of racism at U of Winnipeg by Richard Sandhurst Canadian University Press WINNIPEG (CUP) -- The University of Winnipeg administration has been accused of intimidating four students who complained that a university security guard yelled racist insults at them and threatened them with physical violence. The four students, Jamal Siddiqui, Satwant Brar, Sukhinder Sidhu and Lalit Rai, were told they would be charged with trespassing if they lodged a complaint against the guard with the Manitoba Human Rights Commission. About 7:00 am. December 3, the guard discovered the four students studying in a seminar room. The U of W is closed between 1l:OO pm and 8:00 am and there is no space on campus where students can legally study all night. “She didn’t identify herself or ask us what we were doing in the room, Siddiqui said. “She didn’t ask us if we had permission to be in the room. She just came in and shouted, ‘Get out of here, shi-
theads!“‘. Rai said the guard contined what the problem was.

“She called us ‘brownies’ and ‘jungle bunnies’ and accused us o! breaking into the room, Rai said. “She pushed me and told me to stay out of her way. Then she threw her walkie-talkie down and challenged us to a fight.” Rai told the guard she would be reported to the head of security if she didn’t stop harrassing them. “She said, ‘If you guys were men you would meet me down.at the security headquarters and we will charge you with break and enter. ,” Raid said. The students reported the incident to the head of security, Tom Marshall, and the university administration. They said they were told they would be charged with trespassing if, they took the matter any further.

Marshall denied he threatened the students and refused further comments. The university’s director of community relations, Jim Carr, said he was unaware of any attemDt to silence the students. “No one has the power or aithority to muzzle anyoneelse,“Carr said. “Every student has the right to speak to the press.” Carr said an investigation had been carried out in December and the matter had been resolved to everyone’ssatisfaction. The guard formally apologised to the students and the incident is closed, Carr said.
But-some students aren’t willing to let the matter drop. “The administration may think the matter is closed, but it is-not,” said U of W student Wadah Thamra. “There have been similar incidents with this guard in the past, although administration denies this because they say there has never been a formal complaint about it before.” Thatira said he had been similarly harrassed by the guard last summer. “She called me a ‘Paki’ and challenged me to a fight,” Thamra said. “1 told here to get her geography straight. 1 am not from.

She should be fired. She is not able to communicate to students, so why is she working here.?” Thamra said he is not surprised the four students didn’t lodge a complaint with the HRC. “They’re scared,” he said. “The university threatened to ruin their reputations.” The only all-night study space on campus was eliminated in 1984 to make way for a skywalk connecting the main university building with the new sports complex. l‘hamra said\ the policy of closing the university at night is absurd. Students have nowhere on campus to study at night, and it leaves residence students open to continual harrassment by security guards, he said. “They don’t even enforce the rule consistently,” Thamra siad. “If they know who you are or if you’re a friend of theirs, they’ll leave you alone. If not, they throw you off-campus.” U of W students council doesn’t plan to let the security ge-t away with racist attacks in the future. “If anything like this ever happens again, with this guard or any other, they will be asked to resign,” said Student Council President Sean MacDonald.

UW excited about pOssibilities it creates by Glenn Rubinoff 3 Imprint staff Dictionaries will never be the same again. What was once a dream is now being made possible through the computer expertise of the University of Waterloo and the intitiative of the Oxford Universijy Press. In an exclusive partnership, U W is designing an electronic database to support an on-line dictionary version of an updated Oxford English Dictionary. Accordmg to Dr. Douglas Wright, University of Waterloo President, it’s a “marvelously exciting” project which “will sweep the world” because of its freedom and flexibility. The Oxford English Dictionary (OED), with supplements, is over 21,000 pages and has almost 350 million characters. As well, there are over 2,300,OOO quotations throughout the OED. ’ The OED was originally designed as an historical dictionary and takes “full account of the word as it entered the dictionary and is supported by quotations” said Gayle Johannesen, Administrative Director forthe OED. Since the first volume, A to AND, was published in 1884, there has been a progressive change in the meaning of words and has resulted in 12 volumes of original text (completed in 1928) and four supplements (the final supplement completed in 1982). It was then that Oxford University Press considered the future. To computerize the dictionary so as to allow for future expansion and updating seemed the most logical so a Request for Tender was put out in the summer of 1983 to carry out this project. Dr. Wright found out about the application for proposals “through a friend at Oxford.” He sent a letter expressing interest to
Will be a stimulus in the processing of language Oxford who were “convinced by the keenness of our interest” and UW was chosen from among 13 other organizations. Of all the organizations, “Waterloo was the only university in the whole world that applied” said Wright. While some aspects of the project were compatible with Waterloo, others were not, so an agreement was made which created a partnership between UW and Oxford University Ptess.to carry out the compatible tasks. The other tasks were subcontracted by Oxford to IBM in the U.K. and International Computaprint Corp. in Philadelphia. ._ IBM is involved in the development of hardware to support the database system on computer. The lnternational Computaprint Corp. is involved in keying in all the text of the OED. Waterloo has been involved in the project in a variety of ways. According to Dr. Frank Tompa, one of the three co-directors of Waterloo’s 20-member university team at the centre for the new OED, in phase one of the project “we came up with the method and software to read the data the way it was captured.” This software will “capture the structure better” and will be “serving as a proof reader ,” said Tampa. In the second phase, Waterloo is developing an electronic database to store the-information and retrieve it an a variety of effective ways. In order for the project to continue in an effective manner, Johannesen commented on the need for other government and private sources of funding as the $400,000 grant Waterloo obtained from the Secretary of State ends in June 1986.

The impacts of this electronic dictionary are visible in a variety of areas. Johannesen stated that it is “a project of vital importance” with “new research opportunities.” It will act as a “natural bridge’ between the development work in computer science and people in Humanities,” said Johannesen. As well, thecomputerized OED has enormous applications to other areas such as acting as a “stimulus in the processing of 1anguage”commented Dr. Wright of the potential “knowledge attainable.” For the University of Waterloo, the major impact resultingis”an opportunity to develop a respected research group in the areas covered by the project,” said Tompa, through the development of a text-oriented database system. As well, lexicography (the development of dictionaries) development and a blend between tradition
and computer support will result in U W developing a new centre of excellence. Another effect of the OED project will be on education. By having a computer version available to all students and faculty, it would make possible more creative activities that were not possible before. Finally, this project potentially serves as a source of revenue for the university for future research. The completed database is due to be delivered to Oxford in 1988 and will be published in 1989. The opportunities seem endless for a project such as this. The future looks very bright for high technology at Waterloo and the OED serves as an important tool in the development of this technology. The importance of projects like this help to sustain the U W as a ‘world class’ educational and reasearch institution.

Cooke:. SSU~,tO burn ‘. * ’ It was the warm and sensual nature of his voice, combined with an unfailing intimacy, that seduced black and white au- * diences alike. From time to time .comparisons are drawn to other vocalists, even a young Sinat.ra, but. what .-sets !Sam Cooke apart from everyone else was his ability, to relate a dynamic range of emotions, each with equal fluidity and verity and make every word seem like it was being spoken directly to you.
With the recent release of a live recording from 1963 and the fifty-fifth anniversary of his birth this past Wednesday, now would be as good a time as any to pay homage to one of the greatest vocalist of modern music, Sam “Mister Soul” Cooke. Sam Cook (the ‘e’ was added when he began recording for the Specialty label) was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1931, one of eight sons and twodaughters of Rev. Charles Cook. The family moved to Chicago where Sam, along with a brother and two sisters formed a gospel quartet known as the Singing Children and, as well, Sam would spend afternoons harmonizing with friends on street COIners for chicks ‘n’ change. His junior gospel affiliations soon led him to the Highway’s Q. C’s which were at the time a type of farm team for the much-revered Soul Stirrers. Sam wasn’t aware of it at the time, but he was next in line to take over the lead vocalist position from the retiring Rebert H. Harris. At the age of just 19 (unheard of in gospel music at that time or this) Cooke stepped into the giant’s shoes. It probably came as no surprise to any that knew him that his velvety delivery, boyish charm and charisma, not to mention his jarringly handsome appearance would make him a sensation from his first “Can I get a witness?” For the next six years (1950-1956), Sam Cooke wrote, arranged and recorded many of what now have become gospel standards: Touch The Hem Of His Garment, Any Day Now, Jesus Gave Me Water, Be With. Me Jesus, and He’s My Guide. Whether singing lead or backing vocals;each song was given the unmistakable Sam Cooke feel of sweeping emotion with finger pop ease that carried right through his years of soul and popular music.
By 1960, Sam’s independent success opened the eyes of RCA who signed him before the year was out. Here he recorded the songs that he is best remembered for: Cupid, Twisting The Night Away, Bring It On Home To Me, etc. Sapped of most of the gritty testifying of his earlier recordings, his RCA period was marred by syrupy string arrangements and unsympathetic, hit-oriented production. Despite all attempts to homogenize his sound for the predominantly white buying public, the soul-barring honesty that dripped from his every syllable could not be compromised. If Sam Cooke wasn’t allowed to let loose in the studio, he’d more than make up for it when singing live for the “downhome” audiences of the chitlin circuit. Just released by RCA is one such night in the cavernous Harlem Square ‘Club in North Miami, 1963. All of the record company restraints have been left far behind in New York and Sam is at last free to work-out. When he tells the audiece that “tonight we’re gonnafeei it”, there is no doubt. Before long, the performance is transformed into a frenzied sermon with the faithful congregation hanging on Sam’s every warble and vocal inflection. You can almost hear the sound of limp bodies dropping on the floor when he pleads It’s Alright. The evening’s height is reached during the introduction of Bring It On Home To Me when he starts the gospel refrain of “somebody have mercy on me” and proceeds to let everyone know what. it is that’s troubling his mind. The tension continues to build as he reinacts the situation. by screaming to the telephone operator with all his loneliness, love and bitterness: “I want my baby,OhhOperator, I want my baby’,then ending his testimonial in full vocal stride, right on cue, to begin the song. Live At The Harlem Square is probably the greatest document of Sam Cooke’s seething intensity yet released. Sadly, this is one of the last performances of Sam Cooke. when he was “In his bag.” In’ December of 1964, Cooke was shot to death under mysterious circumstances at the age of 33 by Bertha Franklin, the manager of the $3-a-night Hacienda Motel in Hollywood with his $14,00O’Ferrari parked outside. The legacy of Sam Cooke, however, continues to burn bright in the recordings he left behind and in the numerous vocalists that retain his influence in their music. Sources:‘Honkers and Shouters - Arnold Shaw; The Go& pel Sound - Tony Heilbut; Nowhere to Run - Gerri Hirshey. Recommended listening: Ain’t That Good News (RCA); Live At The Harlem Square Club (RCA); The Two Sides Of Sam Cooke (.Specialty); The Original Soul Stirrers (Spe, ciality); Gospel Stars In Concert (Specialty).
By the sixth year with the Soul Stirrers, Sam Cooke had risen to the equivalent status of screen idol on the gospel circuit . complete with all the trappings of stardom including fan clubs and legions of female admirers amongst the faithful. Of the more noteworthy was a teenage Aretha franklin and Wilson Pickett who recalls in Gerri Hirshey’s Nowhere to Run: “The sisters feil like dominoes when Sam took the.lead. Bang. Flat-out. Piled three deep in the aisles.” The crossover to the pop audience seemed inevitable for Sam, but not so for Specialty Records president Art Rupe who was genuinely worried about an adverse reaction of the group’s enormous (and wholly devouted) following to Sam Cooke singing “world material”. Rupe refused to let Cooke record any secular music on his Specialty label (although Cooke did manage to cut six pop songs behind Rupe’s back which Specialty hesitantly released in 1970) but Specialty’s house producer Bumps Blackwell was confident in Cooke’s potential for mass appeal and made a deal with Art Rupe, trading all his forthcoming producing royalties in exchange for Sam Cooke’s contract and his own. The result of the first Cooke/Blackwell session was You Send Me which charted number one on the Rhythm and Blues charts and sold / well over a million copies.

A Faust Overture by Richard Wagner (1813-1883) ini-. tiated the concert. Wagner’ originally conceived the work as a complete symphony, but when the time did not permit, he revised the original score into a concert overture.’ There are plenty of orchestral effects in this work, such as solos throughout the orchestra, and the symphony did justice to the piece. The tempestuous music of the Piano Concerto No.3 in C Major by Serge Prokofiev ( 1891- 1953) allowed Jon Kimura Parker to stage his talents.

hite Nights not a typical s by Petii Newell Imprint staff I was prepared to be amused by White Nights, but that was about it. I mean, sure, you know the dancing is going to be great, but after all, it’s just another spy flick with a gimmick, right? Mikhail Baryshinikov is cast, oddly enough, as Nikolai Rodchenko, a Soviet dancer who defected to the West eight years ago. An airliner he is on makes a forced landing at a Siberian miliary base, and the KGB lists him as seriously injured, possibly fatally so. Meanwhile, they squirrel him away in Leningrad = and put pressure on him to r-e-defect and dance in Russia again. Assigned to watch and persuade him are an American defect& and his Russian wife. Gregory Hines, more strange casting, is Raymond’ Greenwood, the American, a tap dancer who defected because of the Vietnam war, and who has long since been relegated to playing Porgy and Bess for the peasants in the provinces. Following is a lot of dancing to decadent American music (any movie with Lou Reed on the sound track can’t be all bad) and the requisite escape plot. Great literature? No. Not even close. It does manage to avoid most of the traditional spy flick trappings, though (only one scene remotely resembling a car chase, and no shootouts), and there are a surprising number of strong performances. We already knew Gregory Hines could act, but off the ballet stage Mikhail Baryshnikov hasn’t exactly been noted for his talent in this direction. He took drama lessons for two whole months for this role, though, and amazingly enough, he can play a Russian

Iron Eade just another Rambo clone by Sandra
Bill’Forsyth has made three similar films over the past few years. Similar not in theme, . her content, but in that they were all made in Scotland on ridiculously small budgets, with a cast of unknown but excellent actors. Comfort and Joy, which played last week-end at the Princess Cinema is the last of these three films, with Gregory’s Girl being the first (and best), and Local Hero
What had to be the best scene, thdugh, was one at the begining of the film in which Alan’s gorgeous, unpredictable sirlfriend is collectinq up orngments around the lhin:inh room in which he is sitting “What are you doing?” he asks. She replies “I’m leaving. I meant to tell you sooner.” But it is the expression on her face, and then on his face, and the absurdity of it all that makes us lauah. The subsequent drea&s*he has of her coming back to him are also
Bill Forsyth spends little to set excellent results next. Comfort and Jov is set in the Christmas season in a city whose name is carefully never mentioned. It is the story of DJ, Dicky Bird (whose real name ‘is Alan), and his involvement in a territorial dispute between two ice scream companies. It is a bit of a Woody Allentype comedy, only more subtle in its humour and in its effective use of stereotypes; but .it laughs at people who ‘take silly things so seriously. The ice cream dispute turns out to be nothing more .than in-fighting among a mafioso family, whose philosophy is that “all good families fight”.
very’ well ‘done, because we don’t know they are dreams until he wakes _up, and we feel fooled again. Forsyth’s films are very simple and original both in concept and in style, offering a pleasant respite from the deluge of Rocky and Rambo films on the market. His films are endearing without any insipid cuteness; the children he depicts are intelligent without being annoyingly precocious, and the unknown actors are actually insightful and consistent in their charac ter development. You leave the theatre feeling as though you’ve made a new friend.
by John Zachariah Imprint staff The plot of Iron Eagle is simple; Doug Master (Jason Gedrick) learns that his dad, an air force colonel, has been shot out of the sky and taken prisoner by a small Mid-East country, and he really starts to fume. And then, when he finds out that his dad is going to be hanged, Doug comes to a decision: the time has come to stop being a boy and start being a man. So with the aid of Chappy Sinclair (Louis Gossett, Jr.), a retired Air Force officer, Doug borrows two F16 fighters, and the two of them fly off to rescue Doug’s dad. Admittedly, the plot of this film is a bit far-fetched. However, Iron Eagle is one of a new breed of films (along with lnvasion U.S.A. etc.) for which plot is secondary to atmosphere and attitude. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s been a large resurgance of patriotism in the U.S., and iron Eagle expresses this feeling wonderfully. In fact, the movie may be seen as an analogy for this renewed national spirit. The feeling of pride and accomplishment Doug feels as he plucks his pop from the gaping jaws of death can be seen all over the country; remember the 1984 summer. games? As Doug said on the eve of his destiny-fulfilling experience, “I may not be all
that ready, but I’m damn proud.” Other timely parallels may be drawn as well. Doug’s frustration over the government’s inaction vis-a-vis his father is a sentiment reflected all over the world about the creeping cancer of terrorism. And Doug’s gutsy, unorthodox solution recalls President Roorder to nald Reagan’s intercept the jet with the Achille Lauro hijackers. Indeed, in Doug, we see a young

“Dutch” Reagan; brash, confident, black-haired, in control. And Gossett’s character, Chappy, embodies all that made America great.

The novel takes the reader back to the time when the first of these women is a young girl and moves to the time when the third generation reaches adulthood. Barfoot has written this story in such a way that the reader can feel the struggles going on inside these women. The events and situations sometimes make you laugh and sometimes make you sad. You can feel the characters living and playing out their roles which have nothing to do with their dreams. Barfoot has the understanding and the talent to let people know how each generation changes and how each has a set of rules for the people to follow which the next generation cannot and will not live by. Although I have not read any other work by this author, I feel she has real talent. This book has given me some enjoyable hours of reading as well as a beginning of an understanding to how life is not always so clear-cut. It also shows the disappointment of unfulfilled dreams.

By far the best piece in the book is journalist Glen Allen’s expertly written (and expertly read on air) diary of drying out after many years of alcoholism. It is an excruciatingly honest account of Allen’s struggle with the bottle and the tremendous effort needed to overcome his disease. Every line rings true. Where The Morningside Papers doesn’t translate well from radio to the written page is in the many frivolous features on such things as limericks from listeners, bear stories, and the joys of spring. These segments make for interesting filler on a moring radio show but don’t really deserve to be published. With more judicious editing, the book ,could have been trimmed down significantly from its 352 pages. Those who love the program, however, will sift through The Morningside Papers and cull the best entries.

It comes as no surprise, then, that a great deal of the skill and care that goes into Gzowski’s program is reflected in The Morningside Papers, a collection of transcripts from the show. The most interesting and thoughtful pieces in the book are the diaries of some of Morningside’s contributors. Chris Brookes provides an insightful and illuminating picture of life in a Nicaraguan village, while Don Meyer’s diary, recording his thoughts on being unemployed for an extended period, capture the frustration and hopelessness he feels.

by Cameron Anderson Imprint staff Last Friday, the 19th, the Warriors basketball team showed they have the potential to play’ ball after Christmas, even without Randy Norris,their big man at centre. In this year’s Mike Moser Invitational, Waterloo defeated their traditional rivals, the York Yeomen, 8 l-69. Unfortunately, it was an exhibition game so doesn’t count towards their points totals. The Warriors began the game ’ slow and unsteady (Coach McCrae described it as “tentative and deliberate”)
CIAU Basketball: the week in review by Donald Duench Imprint staff This week’s ClAU basketball review begins with a look at the top club in the Great Plains conference. Spotlight on Manitoba: The Bisons are currently involved in the toughest three-way conference battle in the country. Both Brandon and Winnipeg could win the conference, but they will have to upset Manitoba to do so. Teams that have already fallen to the Bisons include Calgary, Saskatchewan, Winnipeg (twice) and Alberta. Both games against the cross-town Wesmen have been close ones: an 8 I-75 triumph in the final of Winnipeg’s t’ournament, and an 83-81 win at home in league play. Head coach Rick Suffield, who took over a few years ago from Martin Riley, has done quite a job ‘in turning the Manitoba program around. “When 1 came to Manitoba 1 had what you could call the luxury of deciding who to keep and who to go out and get,” Suffield recently told the Winnipeg Free Press. The Bisons have all five starters back from last season, including All-Canadian Joe Ogoms, Tony Kaufmann and Terry Garrow. Ogoms has basketball skills that have to be seen to be believed, while Kaufmann can hit from anywhere on the floor. Over the regular season, Manitoba gets three more games against Winnipeg and four versus Brandon. If anything, those games will toughen up the Bisons for the ClAU regionals in March. Woe to whoever draws Manitoba in the first round. Doing it the hard way: Brandon and Concordia, the two school currently in the ClAU’s sin bin for various naughty actions, have the most riding on conference play this year. The only way for either team to qualify for the regionals is by winning their respective conference championship. Concordia has the distinct advantage of playing in the QUAA. Under the QUAA’s rules, if a team goes undefeated during the regular season, that team is acclaimed as conference champion. Currently the Stmgers are 4-O with 8 regular season games to play. The week (Jan. 13 - 19) Canada West: The best news coming out of Calgary this week was the play of the Dinos, who beat Saskatchewan (86-70) and Alberta (89-83) to move to 3-O in the CWUAA standings. Also at 3-O is Victoria, who just got past UBC 72-70. Great Plains: Winnipeg bounced back from their midweek loss to Manitoba by defeatinK Lakehead 82-70 and 84-60 in Thunder Bay. Brandon beat Regina twice, 104-96 and 78-72, to remain undefeated at 4-O. OUAA East: After their loss in the Mike Moser game, York put Laurentian in their place with a 77-60 triumph. The win gives the Yeomen first place among all conference teams not from Sudbury. The Carleton Ravens continued their “upsetmindedness” with a 73-68 win over Toronto. U of T bounced back to take a 75-61 decision from Ottawa to go l-l on their road trip. In other games, Laurentian beat Ryerson 77-65, and R‘MC dropped to O-7 with losses to Ottawa (76-39) and Queen’s (92-53). Quebec: UQTR played at Concordia on Friday. McGill played at Bishop’s on Saturday. The scores? Darned if 1 know! Atlantic: Dalhousie fell from the ranks of the undefeated, losing 75-66 to Acadia and 69-61 at UPEI. The best performance of the week was by St. Mary’s, The Huskies beat St. F. X. (75-70). New Brunswick (94-66) and Mt. Allison (85-63), taking the& record to 4-3. Acadia also did well, defeating Dalhousie, Mt. Allison (78-66) and New Brunswick (77-62).

Norris may be out for season by Steve Hayman Imprint staff A knee injury to the Warrior’s All-Canadian seven-foot center Randy Norris has turned out to be worse than expected. “Randy came by practice on Monday and told us that he doesn’t think he’ll be back this year, due to the nature of the injury.

Paul Van Oorschot knee injury coupled with a suspension to Peter Savich resulted in the first ever start for Rob Froesc, now a Warrior standout. On a positive note, Marcel Naus may return from a broken elbow as early as Monday. Each time, the team was able to survive the loss of a key player and continue to the Final Four, as any championship team should be able to do. Now, the team is no longer a big team. “I’d say we’re a small club now,” McCrae noted. The team has thrived on this sort of challenge in the past.

SPORTS -’ m - . Athena’sm,downed 58-46 it Brock Waterloo Basketball. The topic inevitably brings to mind the great Warrior teams. But even after the 58-46 loss last weekend, there is only one first place basketball team at Waterloo -- the Athenas. While. the Warriors struggled over Christmas, the women have been quietly putting together a 5-l record, good enough for first place in the OWIAA west division. Brock is historically the team to beat in the West, and the Athenas found themselves unequal to the task on Saturday. As coach Sally Kemp pointed out, the key to Brock’s victory was their tough zone defence, something Waterloo had yet to face this season. The disciplined zone, combined with agressive ball stealing, kept the Athenas outside. Denied/the inside shot, Waterloo moved the ball well around the perimeter, but had difficulty finding the twine. The uncharacteristically poor out-
side shooting left Waterloo trailing 27-19-at half. The second half saw Water)oo hitting more shots, yet playing up and down defensively. Their one on one defence didn’t deny the ball cuts, and an inability to come off picks cleanly handed Brock too many inside shots and lay-ups. As a result the Athenas were unable to catch up, and lost 58-46. Cindy Poag led all Waterloo scorers with 14, and her tireless effort was a bright spot in the loss. Corrina Lueg and Kim Rau added 13 and 10 respectively. The Athenas are a young team, with only three returning starters, so the young guards are sure to improve with time. Not a particularly big team, they rely on a running offence, and a pressing one on one defence, which makes for exciting basketball. In order to be successful, however, they must box out larger opponents and slow down the offence when it is to their advantage.
The Warrior nordic ski team skated to a 1st place team finish by a 28 second margin over 2nd place Western in Competition last Sunday. Four universities Waterloo, Western, Guelph, and Trent - fielded full men’s squads at the Southern Ontario Divi.sion freestyle race held at Mono Nordic Ski Club near Orangeville. The team stand-
ings were calculated by accumulating the times of the top four skiers for each team. Snow was conspicuous by its absence in most of southern Ontario, including Orangeville, over the weekend of January 18-19. But the Waterloo teams managed to salvage one of their two scheduled races. It was a 5 km. free-for-all sprint through a
