Saloojee condemns apartheid “We can’t wait any longer and allow our people to be killed,” Yusaf Saloqjee, a spokesperson for the African National Congress, told a large audience in the Arts Lecture Hall on Wednesday night. He delivered a spirited attack against apartheid - South Africa’s system of racial segregation - and called for its dismantling. He said the South African government is feeling a great deal of pressure but that more is needed for positive change to occur. “By the end of the year, something will have to break,” Saloqjee noted. Saloqiee added that the most important reform, and one which is non-negotiable, is to have a political system of one person / one vote. “The South African government believes it has a God-given right to lead and shape events in .the country, but South Africa belongs to all the people who live in it.“’

He said that the internal pressures to dismantle apartheid are growing every day. As forkign investors are pulling out of the . country, South African business leaders are recognizing that apartheid is bad for business. As well, Saloqjee pointed out that there are some cabinet ministers who believe that it would be suicidal for the white minority in South Africa not to begin to dismantle apartheid. Salooiee said that violence can not be ruled out in the struggle against institutionalized racism. “We prefer to sit down and talk, rather than kill each other, but we are not prepared to sell lives and principles... Apartheid is a crime againt humanity, so when the army comes to break up a peaceful demonstration with guns, we ‘will fight back. I?)‘edemand a right to human dignity, a life of peace, and to develop faculties to full potential,” Saloojee said. The African National Congress was established in 19 12 and is dedicated to making South Africa an open,free and democratic society, where colour is not a criterion for citizenship. In 1960, The ANC was outlawed and its leader NelsonMandelawasconvicted of sabotage and jailed for life.
opposed to a motion to decertify the club. Decertification means the journalism society won’t get free access to campus services or the campus security that will be necessary for the ambassador, Glenn Babb to speak. The student council executive had suspended the society status as a univecsity club a week earlier, saying the club’s invitation violated council policy to sever ail links with the apartheid regime and its bat kers. The society’s vice-president, Rob Mackenzie, said that the council ruling does not mean they will withdraw the invitation to Babb. “We were shot down tonight, but we’ll be back tomorrow.” Carleton’s anti-apartheid group (CAAG), which opposed Babb’s appearance on campus, did not initiate the move to decertify the journalism society. But the originator of the motion to sever links with apartheid said he was pleased at the ‘outcome. “It’s not exactly a victory for CAAG, but this meeting could have produced a severe set-back for us,” \ said Paur Gross. The council also voted to have a committee review the . original anti-apartheid policy. The journalism society has tentatively confirmed Canadian journalist Peter Kent to oppose Babb in the debate. Kent has covered Africa for both the NBC and CBC. Mackenzie. . says. they.^. might . get around the decertiticatlon by asking Carleton professors to invite the ambassador.

PAC Injury Centre to close by Frank van Biesen Imprint staff On March 2 1, 1986, the Athletic Injury Centre in the PAC will close to all but varsityathletesas a result of inadequate facilities, according to its employees. The move follows a decision reached by the centre’s staff, which is losing two of its members, Dr. Forrest Caldwell, and physiotherapist lnese Krastins. In a letter to Imprint last week, athletic therapist Brian Farrance summarized the centre’s growth in popularity since 1980 and its resulting need for improved facilities. “I’m very sad that this happened,” said Farrance, “but wejust don’t have a choice.” Farrance will continue as athletic therapist for the varsity athletes after March 2 1. Dr. Caldwell has been working part-time at the centre and part-time at Health and Safety. He will, however, be leaving the university altogether after the centre closes. “Unless something drastic is to happen, yes, I’m leaving,” said Caldwell. His attempts at obtaining help from the UW administration have met with failure, he said. “I’ve been trying for about 18 months to convince the university that the centre is worth having,” stated Caldwell, “but there is no support for increased space or the money required to create it.” Just before Christmas. 1984, Caldwell submitted a proposal for an expanded facility to “anyone who would read it,“as he put it. In it, he outlined possible solutions to the space problem, such as renting off-campus space (with the university’s financial help). The proposal led to a meeting in January, 1985, between Caldwell, Pat Robertson, vice-president of university services, Ernie Lucy, director of employee and student
services, and other officials in the Kinesiology and Athletics departments. “The moral support was excellent,” said Caldwell, “but nothing became of it.” According to Robertson, the situation now is no different than what it was at the time of the meeting. “Therejust isn’t any space to allocate to it,” he said. “We weren’t set up to really have that sort of an operation.” Asked if he, personally, would advocate supporting the centre, Robertson replied, “Compared to what? Should I cut back, say at the library to allow the clinic to continue’? I would be taking on a terrible battle to take away space from someone else to give to the injury Centre.” Fourth year engineering student Andre Naumann is sorry to see the centre close. “lt was a great service. 1 always got a straight answer on the implications of an in.jury,” said Nauman’n. “It’s a shame they’re shutting it down.” The centre has been completely self-sufficient, according to Dr. Caldwell. The Ontario Hospital insurance Plan has been billed for the treatment given to patients and that money has been used to pay the salarie\ of Caldwell, Dr. Don Ranney of the Kinesiology department, who aiso works part-time at the centre, physiotherapist Krastins, and a receptionist (Farrance is employred by the Kincsiology, Athletics, and Co-Ree departments). “The university probably thinks that’s great (self-sufficiency),” said Caldwell, “they’re getting a service for nothing.” Dr. Ranney agrees wholeheartedly with Caldwell’s decision to leave. “The universrty has indicated, by its unwillingness to cooperate, that it -just doesn’t care about athletics,” said Ranney. Although the centre is shutting down, Ranney will continue to operate a private Sports injury

The Athletic Injury Centre is to close on March 21 due to a “tack Photo by Joe Sary space.” Assessment Clinic (i.e. no treatment) on a reterral-only basis from therapist Farrance (for athletes), or any of the Health & Safety physicians (for others): This clinic supports a -Kjnesiology course (KIN 491) in sports medicine, and the course will thus H not. be dropped as a result of the
centre’s closing. Robertson sees no way the clinic can be saved. “We have applications for space totalling 60,000 sq. ft. in excess of what will be available once the Davis building is complete,” he said. “it’s a question of priorities.”
UW wants software to b,ecopyrighted by M. A. Morley Imprint staff UW officials said last Friday that federal government plans for broad revisions to the Copyright Act, including extending copywright protection to computer software, could take years and cost Canada hundreds, if not thousands of jobs in the meantime. Canada’s Copyright Act, last revised in 1923, makes no provision for computer software or semi-conductor chips, and U W President Douglas Wright fears that if these issues are not addressed immediately, Canada will lose as software development companies seek countries where copyright protection is ensured. Wright is concerned that Canada may already be losing high-tech expertise because of inadequate copyright laws.
Unprotected computer programs and chip designs are often the targets of “pirating”, said Peter Sprung, UW’s associate director of computing services. He noted that Apple Co., the well-known computer and sofware developer, will be challenging a number of “offshore importers” on the basis of copyright law in Toronto this week.’ “If you could see the list of defendants involved in the case, it would give you some idea of the number of people who are into this,” said Sprung. The decision of the Torontocourt will be an important one, he said, because, at present, there is very little judicial precedent in relation to software copyrights. Other nations, including the U.S., Great Britain and Japan, have already responded to the problem with legislation. Wright said Canada must fol-
low suit with “an amendment that defines a computer program as a ‘literary work’ so that all the conventions that apply to literary works will apply to such programs.” A. speedy amend ment is needed, according to Wright, because “as long as the status of computer software remains in doubt, multi-national corporations and even individual entrepreneurs are going .to hesitate underwrite, or attempt, the development of software here.” The difficulty of protecting computer chips from pirating is very. similar, said Sprung. The semi-conductor chips which are the backbone of the industry are also unprotected by Canadian copyright law. The United States, in 1984, passed a Semiconductor Chip Protection Act, and has called for other coun-
“Officials tn the Ministry of Commercial and Corporate AfI‘airs have told me we likely won’t meet the deadline,” Sprung said, “but that we may be able to extend it.” He would like to see computer chips protected under the Copyright Act, rather than a special act as
tries to respond with similar legSprung said the islation. Americans gave Canada a oneyear “breathing -space” to couform. That year expires in June. If Canada can meet the deadline, the Americans will give protection to Canadian chip designs in the U.S.

Bus Push niieds pledges .-
The Waterloo Engineering Society (EngSoc) is asking your support for the 10th Annual Bus Push for Rig Srsfers, on Saturd.ay March 8th. EngSoc is counting on your pledges to raise $6,000 for Big Sisters, a community group which offers emotional,, academic and counselling assistance to girls in the K;W area. During the next week, engiricers will be canvassing for
pledges. A Bus Push booth will be set up in the Campus Centre from March 3rd to 7th. Pledges can also be made in the Engineering Society office in Carl Pollock Hall. 1 I The Push will begin at IO:30 at the UW campus. Students, professors and various local dighitaries including Mayor Marjorie Carroll will push the bus to Market Square in Downtown Kitchener. The parade, led by the engineering mascot and the engineer’s hard hat
band, will travel along University Avenue and King Street. Chris ‘l-ague, of the organizing committee, says “Lately engineers have’ not had a good image.,” but she hopes “this will show engineers -aren’t a11 that bad.” Big Sisters say they are very grateful for the support, not only from the Bus Push, but also from the tuition lottery the Engineers held. A reception will be held afterwards for all participants. Everyone is encouraged to come out and join the fun.

This has,been a bad week for presidents at home & abroad .
February has been a tough month for ‘Baby DOC’ Duvalier, Ferdinand Marcos and, of course, Sonny Flanagan. After being overthrown in the recent presidential election, Flanagan has done everything in his power to quell rumours of his fleeing Waterloo. A helicopter mission failed in its attempt to lift,the ex-president to the temporary asylum offered by The Breslau. As a last gasp effort to rally support for his government, Flanagan broke into the broadcast room of CKMS - Radio Waterloo interrupting the prime time reggae program, but, . unfortunately, no one was tuned in to the station. When asked to comment on their respective downfalls, Marcos and Duvalier were heard to complain about their armed forces while Flanagan could only mumble repeatedly “damn backstabbing security”.
While the flagging fortunes of the Haitian and Philippine economies helped precipitate the downfall of Marcos and Duvalier, observers point to drowning Warrior football and hockey teams as a significant contributor to the dissolution of ‘King’ Sonny’s rule, as he preferred to be addressed. The rank-and file of Waterloo Students seemed fed up with what they saw as the “creeping pinko invasion” of the UW campus. First, an openly feminist newspaper columnist, then vegetarian food at the Campus Centre coffee shop, and what proved to be the last straw: open advocation
of civil disobedience by the student administration during the full-scale computer-fee protest .. . enough was enough!

Meanwhile Scott Forrest took the opportunity to declare himself ‘President For Life’ in front of a capacity Monday ,night crowd at Federation hall to whooping chants of “WAAR-RI-ORS, WAAR-RI-ORS”, only to be joined by an unnamed former Miss Oktoberfest. Forrest used his herculean strength to pry himself free of the adoring young woman long enough to announce that “Even though Willie Grove wasn’t elected vice-president, we are going to continue tag-team wrestling together,” and subsequently issued a standing challenge to Sonny Flanagan and Mark ‘The Crusher’ McKay, putting their World Wrestling Association belt on the line. Forrest then told the audience that the team also plans to record a version of RQ Are The I?%&1 with all the proceeds being placed in the Federation savings account to be used to defer the enormous expense of the administrations rumoured “Examination Paper, Ink and Printing Fee.” Grinning brightly, Forrest ended his address by saying “Uh, Oh yeah, I also want to work with administration:‘to which the gathered throngs responded with even more ,jubilant Warrior cries, clanking bottles and flaming disposable lighters thrust on high.

University shows lack of concern by allowing Injury Centre to close The university administration, with its lack of concrete support for the Athletic Injury Centre, is demonstrating a blatant ignorance of students’ concerns. The Centre, lauded by many people as an excellent service, is being permitted to close on March 21, due to inadequate facilities. In recent years, the field of medicine has begun to realize the need for specialists in the area of sports injuries. Genera1 practitioners are no longer considered capable of properly diagnosing and treating complex problems such as knee and ankle injuries, which are frequently incurred in various sports. Treatment for such injuries used to consist of “plenty of rest,” which is now well known to be completely incorrect. As a result, physiotherapists are in high demand. . In keeping with this trend, the Athletic Injury Centre has expanded over the years, adding physician supervision, as well as a ful’l-time physiotherapist. This has been accomplished in an entirely self-sufficient manner, ie. at no cost to. the university. The Centre has provided sports medicine students (in Kinesiology) with the opportunity to log time In a clinical setting, a requirement for therapist certification. Also, students and people from the community are able to obtain expert injury assessment, as well as virtually immediate physiotherapy. Outside the university, this type of treatment could entail a %waiting period of up to three

weeks. The problem of the Injury Centre is part of a far larger one. Athletics have been a secondary concern for UW’s administration sincethe school’s inception. The Columbia Icefield, the only addition to the athletic facilities since 1968 (when the PAC was built), has been (and still is) completely funded by students. Proposals to improve the weight training room, locker space, and the Injury Centre, all of which are grossly inadequate at present, have all been shelved. “No space,” is the reason given, yet the university has the gall to install classrooms in what limited athletic facilities we have. Certainly a service as popular as the Injury Centre deserves more than just moral support from the administration. It is doubtful whether anyone - student, faculty, or otherwise - who has been involved with, or treated at the Centre, ‘is not truly disappointed to see it close. That type of general consensus conveys a powerful message, a message to the administration that the Injury Centre is a service worth preserving. According to Pat Robertson, UW vice-president of university services, “It’s a question of priorities.” Precisely, Mr. Robertson, that it is. And if there is any salvation in your reaction, it lies in the fact that half the solution is your realization of the problem. Frank

Vickery’s letter in the February 14th issue of Imprint. 1do have a very good understanding of the issues; 1 question whether he does. I wrote to Imprint not for a chance to be “selfish and bull-headed” but because I am concerned about this world and what transpires in it. 1 can not claim to have been part of the demise of Enginews. However, after having read copies of it f was glad to see it go. 1 question whether you, Brian, actually read my-letter. I did not at any time suggest the engineers purposety tried to instil1 hatred against women. Even if you never took Enginews seriously, it doesn’t change the fact that it did offend people. Let’s face it, if reading Enginews was the only way engineers could relax, they would be a very maladaptive group. Admittedly, there are worse examples of pornography. They are nbt, however, being produced at an institute of higher learning of whic,h 1 am a member. The existence of one piece of pornography can hardly justify allowing others to exist. You question whether our country is a democracy. 1 think that it is a democracy when the rights of the majority (not to be subiected to hate literature) are considered before the whims ofa minor.ity (to have a laugh at another’s expense). 1 wonder why Enginews lasted as long as it did.

by Alan Yoshioka This is not intended as a direct answer to Blair MacDonald’s letters (Feb. 14 and today on page 8). Rather, 1want to play with a few thoughts his comments stimulated. Re: “decency” When I first heard about sex -- straight sex, that is -- I didn’t think it was disgusting. But what did gross me out was the thought of marriage, because it amounted to announcing to the whole world that the two of you actually had sex. 1 mean, if you had to do these things,- the least you could do was keep it to yourself, right‘? Re: “homophobia” The word isn’t in any standard dictionary that 1 know of. It’s too new, even though homophobia itself has been around for a long time in some form or another. A recent United ‘Church report defines it as “irrational and persistetit fear of homosexuality which leads to dislike or hatred of homosexual persons.” Another useful word is “heterosexism”, coined by analogy to “sexism”. It includes things like a conviction that heterosexuality is somehow superior to homosexuality, or simply an unwarranted assumption about someone’s sexual orientation. Before Stonewall, a film about pioneers of the gay liberation movement, illustrated the point nicely. In the opening frames is a disclaimer, “Unless otherwise stated, no person appearing in this film should be presumed to be homosexual.‘* At the world premier in Toronto, the audience greeted this all-too-familiar refrain with catcalls. But then the screen filled with ‘I... or heterosexual.” Last week, Imprint ran a photo of a large sign saying, “I love you Diana,” which was posted on the University Avenue overpass. The cutline below read, “Somebody went to a lot of work to get his Valentine’s message to Diana.” Did we know the message sender wasn’t a lesbian, or was‘ it just assumed‘? In contrast, a year or two ago MathSoc ran an ad asking for volunteers to help organize Frosh Week. The list of reasons to join included “a chance to meet frosh of your favourite sex.” It was wonderful to feel included. We: “fhe sexuai act that (homosexuals) perform” If -- heaven forbid -- 1 had to choose oneand only one such act. it would almost certainly be a massage. (My lover will verify this claim). Do people really think what gay couples do is so completely different from what straight couples do? Or is Blair’s little survey biased? Re: “equal rights” I’m glad to see that Blair says he is favour of equal rights for homosexuals. The point is, you don’t have to think homosexuality is the greatest thing since the opposable thumb, to be concerned about the civil liberties issues at stake here. Last Friday, 1 said the federal government was going to respond that day to a report recommending a legislative end to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. The deadline has now been changed’ to’ March 4.

I think our new Fed. President Scott Forrest summed it up well when he said that students at UW spend too much time studying and not enough time at other activities. I think these other activities could be classified as having fun and not being so damned serious. 1’11really miss the entertainment value of Imprint when I graduate, especially the most important issue ever covered in Imprint: the famous LARRY INCIDENT of last year. So, all you Carol Fletcher haters, male chauvinists, feminists and fag-bashers, keep those cards and letters coming in. I’m probably not the only one who doesn’t take UW too seriously

This Saturday, March lst, we will be running the First Annual Trapper Orienteering Contest from St. Paul’s College on the U W campus. Actually, it’s ,not the first, it’s the third such event since Johnson died in 1932, but the other two x-country ski events were in the hills and hollows and on the ice of Lake Simcoe. This is-the first for Waterloo, and high time too! What we do is this: skiers (and non-skiers) assemble at St. Paul’s at 1:30 in teams of 5 or 6; the teams are briefed and each team is given an envelope in which are contained clues; the teams are dispatched at timed intervals to search (but not destroy) the letters that are hidden at seven stations in the snow; the letters form an anagram, which forms a name the name of the Mad Trapper. The whole thing hinges on the fact that the biggest manhunt ever mounted in Canada was for a solitary trapper whose identity was then, and to this day remains, unknown. Here are the facts: In the winter of 193 l-32, a man named Johnson (some say his name was Nelson) was living peaceably in a cabin he had built in the Rat River delta of the northern Yukon. He had arrived the summer before bkraft at the Indian Village of Ft. McPherson, having poled down the Ogilve and Peel Rivers, and before that the Pelly and Yukon Rivers, and before that the Stewart and Liard Rivers. He had been poling up and down mighty rivers for five years to get to the Peel and some peace, where he bought an outfit (traps, dry goods, and a canoe) and disappeared into the Rat River delta. The Mounties sent in a couple of men to inspect this loner and misfit. He wouldn’t receive them. On their second trip in (80 miles by dog team) he shot one, and the chase was on. Johnson, or whatever-his-name-was, eluded his pursuers
time after time, even though they had modern equipment (an airplane, two-way radio, dynamite, and all the food they could eat), by ruses such as snowshoeing backwards, doubling back along the lips of ravines, never starting a campfire,-and never -eating- - for nearly two months! In the meanwhile he outmanouvred, outsgot, and outran them, crossing over the Richardson Mountains in winter, a feat which the Indian and Eskimo trackers refused to believe possible. In the midst of this melee, in order to extricate himself from a few cul-de-sacs in which he got corne’red, he shot and killed one Mountie and wounded another. On several occasions, he could have killed all his pursuers: 80 or more. But unless his own life was endangerkd, he let them live. In the end, the Mounties got their man, what what was left of him. But even they they weren’t sure he was their man, and nobody knew who he was. Throughout the 1930s and into the 4Os, the RCMP received hundreds of querries from - people claiming that the Mad Trapper was their long-lost brother, husband, son, etc.. The identity of the man the Mounties shot is still unknown . . . In our re-enactment of the Johnson saga we use skis (or gumboots, depending on the weather), the natural features of the UW campus, top maps (supplied), and native intelligence. Dynamite and .30-.30’s aren’t allowed. There’s room For a team each from Vl, V2, Renison, St. Jerome’s, and Conrad Grebel, and a few spares. You must pre-register by calling St. Paul’s College by 5 p.m. Friday. The Mad Trapper is out there, the magic name is hidden in the snow. (Thr Rev. Dr. Tom York is United Church Chaplain to UW and WLU. His ojfice is at St. Paul 2 College.)

by Anne Fleming Once again, it’s time to celebrate International Women’s Day. March 8 is a day I look forward to every year as a day to recognize the solidarity of women across the country and around the world, and as a day to have one hell of a good time. I use the term “solidarity” advisedly, for International Women’s Day (IWD) has its origins in the women’s trade union and socialist movements. Actually, I was quite surprised when 1 Started to research the origins of IW D. I had always heard the story of an impromptu strike of New York City women garment and textile workers in 1857 to protest 12 hour working days and low wages. The story continues that 50 years later, on March 8, 1907, a rally was held in New York in honour and memory of those early striking women. According to two different accounts I have read, IWD was either established with the rally in 1907, or in 1910, at the proposal of German socialist and women’s rights activist Clara Zetkin. Either way, this is the basic story I know and have heard many times. 1 was surprised then, to read that “neither event [the 1857 strike, nor the 1907 rally] seems to have taken place. Instead, the version 1 knew was “an apocryphal story [which] surfaced in French Communist circles in the 1950s” (Temma Kaplan, in Feminist Studies, Vol. 11, No. 1). 1 was astonished. Here I was, aiming to spend an hour or so in the library, verifying the story 1already knew, so I could give a pithy and moving history of IWD. After searching fruitlessly for four oi five hours for documentation of the 1857 strike and the 1907 rally, I came upon theabovearticle, which blew my version to pieces. It was with some relief that I read on, “the real history of IWD cannot be separated from the political life of Clara Zetkin.” here, at least, was some connection between the stories. Luckily, I did a little better closer to home. IWD was first celebrated in K-W with a march and party in 1974, organized by Lorna Warlow, in connection with the Rape Crisis Centre. This year, Women’s Day celebrations in K-W include speakers, art displays, a self-defence demonstration, a hat museum, film festival, and cabaret and dance. On Thursday March 6, Manitoba folk and blues singer Heather Bishop performs with Tracy Riley at the Humanities Theatre. There’s a lot going on and women have a lot to celebrate: a rich heritage (incluing garment and textile workers who did strike in 1908), a closing wage gap, grater opportunities in career choices . . . But we still have a lot to protest, too: inadequate daycare, inaccessible abortions, the existing wage gap, sex-role stereotypes, the poverty of single mothers, violence against women, an escalating nuclear arms race. Appropriately, last year the women in Toroto took for their IWD slogan the title of a song by Robin Flower, which expresses both the gains we have made, and the ground we have yet to cover: Still Ain’t Sati$ed. It would take me a great deal more time than 1 have at present to seriously track down the “true” origins of International Women’s Day. For now, though 1 am intrigued by the various stories, it is enough to know that next Saturday, March 8, women (and a few men) around the world will be getting together to march, to protest, and most of all, to celebrate ourselves, our history, and our future.
How ab,out a column for “silent majority’? To the editor: Between the militant feminists, the militant anti-feminists, the’ homosexuals, the homophobics, and the homosupporters, the editorial content of this newspaper is really starting t&piss me off. Next think you know, Carol Fletcher will be lobbying to ban urinals from campus, while Dr. Wright will be trying to implement a user fee on them. So how about a column dedicated to that silent majority - the average straight male. Or would that be too risque‘? Phil Locker 3B Math Editor’s Note: If a member of the “silent mqjority *’ would like a column in Imprint, he or she is welcomed to apply for one.

To the editor: I would like to talk about Tom York’s “Let’s Talk About - - - - ” columns. I find they are fun to,read, but too tame and vapid. He ta1ks about the seven deadly sins as if they were so many flavours of ice cream. 1 don’t want to sound overly critical or snide, but since he’s the one doing the talking, perhaps he should say something.

I don’t know how the university can let the Athletic Injuries Physiotherapy program close just because of “lack of space.” The morning clinic with the doctor and the physio has obtained a reputation of good service and results. It has grown so popular with the school community and public in general, that there can be as many as 17 people packed into an area as large as your living room at any one time. Since we can’t possibly fit any more people into this cramped, hot working space, the waiting list is growing longer. The fact that people have to wait for this service defeats the purpose of rehabilitation and our professionals can no longer work under these conditions. Thus the morning clinic must close for being successful. Along with the appeal for a larger work place, the staff of the clinic had offered to expand the kinesiology “sports medicine” program by offering another practical course in the clinic. This is whereby ma:jor concern is. 1 am a student in the “sports med.” stream of Kmesiology. The only sbor)s med. courses we have comprise of two classes on the first aid and diagnostics of sports in-juries (KIN 340 & 341). and for those seriously involved, a practical course of hands-on experience in the clinic with the doctor. Many K 1N students, such as myself, volunteer as student therapists in both the physio and varsity hours to gain practical experience in sports med., and to help us on work terms with related skills. Since
1 the morning c,licic is closing, we not only lose over half of our volunteer hours and the exposure of working with a doctor and physio, we are losing a KIN course (KIN 49 1). A handful of us realized the limitations of the KIN sports med. program in the first place and we are working independently of the university on certification as athletic therapists. We are supervised by Brian Farrance through the Canadian At.hletic Therapists Association. For our requirements, we must complete 1,200 hours of experience in clinic and field settings before we can be certified. If we lose the physio program, we lose valuable exposure which is necessary for the.CATA requirements. Thus, I pose to the university, a question; Can you afford not to expand the Athletic ln.juries facility? Past the cost of the new work space, these professionals work on OHlP billing and even donate to U W for the use of the property. The Kinesiology program has the reputation of being the best in the area, yet the “sports medicine” stream which was virtually non-existant before, is suffering. Let the physio program continue while providing a free education to-those of us who want to learn. So . .. University of Waterloo, if you care about your reputation, LIVE UP TO lT!

Food Services strives for monopoly To the editor: As you may already know, Mr. Dave Boxwell, owner and operator of the VI Pizza Palace, recently passed away. Throughout his history here, Mr. Boxwell strived to offer students jobs and to provide students with a quality product for a low price. Aftera brief conflict last year during which Mr. Boxwell fought both on-campus Food Services and off-campus based chains for the contract to operate in Village 1, the Pizza Palace reopened its doors. Recently,, however, shortly after the news of Mr. Boxwell’s passing away, Food Services decided without consulting Villagers to expand its operations into Village 1, at the former location of the Pizza Palace. After a series of confrontations between student council and Food Services regarding this planned move, the vicepresident of the university decided to enforce peace by not allowing any party to take over the business, and that the facilities which housed the Pizza Palace would be turned into a conference room. So now, unfortunately for the students, Food Services has achieved its ultimate go& an on-campus monopoly on all food sales. With the demise of the Pizza Palace it is important to note
To the editor re: Anne Fleming’s column on Feb. 21 Feminism is a very confusing word to me. I thought the basic philosophy of feminism is that women should be equal, but not the same. Because of this, 1was very surprised to see an article under the heading “Feminism 101” that presented a somewhat contrary opinion. Anne, I am by no means a chauvinist, but 1 really do think that men and women are different from the day they are born. This, however, is not as negative a thing as you make it out to be. Each of us has a set of roles that we play every day; for example the role you play while at work, while at home, while at a high school formal. We also have an identity based on nationality and religion. What I’m trying to say her is that being male or female is p-art ofour identitiy, and that there are roles that each play. Some people may get upset by the last phrase, but bear in mind that 1didn’t say fixed roles, and I didn’t say that these roles had to be di&Ie-nt all the__tjme. D. Kalfon 2A Mathematics

that Go-Pizza no longer has the stiff competition which has up until now kept prices low and quality at a reasonable level. As their quick acitons would suggest, it seems that Food Services is anxious to expand its pizza operations to help offset its approximate $100,000 per year deficit. So if a price increase is not their goal it must certainly be an enticing option. So now when students purchase a pizza on-campus their money will no longer be used to help pay other students wages but will instead be funneled into the bottomless pit of Food Services* deficit. There are even more drawbacks to the situation as it now exists, in that students have lost their-jobs, the Villages will lose income in the form of lost rent, and, finally, Go-Pizza will become as quality oriented as the rest of Food Services’ operations. Finally, 1 feel that by preventing a new owner from taking over the Pizza Palace a great disservice is being done to thevillagers and also that the university is undermining the entrepreneurial spirit which helped to create this institution.

What are Imprint’s priorities?
SOIL, I WATER YOU, I GIVE YOU PLENTY OF SUNLIGHT...
To the editor: In his editorial of Jan. 31, Cameron Anderson asks “What are our priorities?” in reference to the media coverage of the space shuttle tragedy vis-a-vis the institutionalized killings that take place every day. I suggest that this question be directed towards Imprint itself. In an editorial a few weeks past, Carol Fletcher praised the demise of Enginews because it had been “racist and sexist.” In particular, she suggests that money formerly directed to Enginews be donated to the Big Sisters to help out young girls. (Apperently Carol is unaware that Big Sisters is truly non-sexist and helps boys and girls) If Carol and Imprint truly want to help women and girls, then how can they continue to promote cigarette smoking with full page fourkolour ads? The World Health Organization reports that Canada has one of the worst problems with increasing lung cancer of any nation on earth and that this increase can be almost wholly attributed to cigarettes. The W.H.O. was particularly concerned that while most segments of Canadian society showed a drop in the percentage of smokers, there was an increase in the percentage of young womenwho smoked.
Isn’t Imprint (and its advertising manager, Carol Fletcher) being hypocritical when it claims to support women’s well being and equality by praising Enginews’demise while continuing to promote a known health hazard that is spreading among those same women? Unless Imprint wants to argue that cigarette advertising is less offensive and dangerous to women (and men) than Enginews ever was, I suggest that Imprint either stop promoting cancer or get off Enginews’ back. Where are your priorities? Paul Meyer 3A Civil Engineering Editor’s note: l Firstly, it should be noted that Carol Fletcher cannot, on her own, withdraw an ad. Only Imprint’s voting staff, by holding a vote concerning the ad in question, can do this. l Secondly, Imprint does not “promote” cancer. If people, by the time they reach university, do not know that smoking does nasty things to their bodies, there is no hope for them. Adults decide to smoke, fully aware of the consequences. Thirdly, if we decide to ban every ad that we have difficulty with, l we would have to double our student fees to support the paper.
.Replies resort to name calling To the editor: Two weeks ago 1 wrote a letter to the editor expressing my point of view. 1 attacked no person and there was no name calling. I am very sorry to see that the people who replied to my letter cannot support their point of view without resorting to such childish tactics as name calling and false accusations without proper proof. In Lisa Simkins’ letter, I was called “... a bigot attempting to represent the majority of people.” I am not a bigot, in fact 1 am an egalitarian and 1am in favour of equal rights for homosexuals. I too am disgusted by people who go out fag beating. My representation isn’t that far off though. Everyone I talked to told me that they are also disgusted by a sexual act involving two men, so 1 am not alone. Out of forty there were a total of two exceptions. One was a gay and the other was a lesbian. In Lori Ciaralli’s letter, she stated that “the thought of two men making love doesn’t disgust me.” Well that means one of two things. This is either a sexual fantasy of hers, to come across two bisexual men in a sexual act, or, she is a lesbian and can sympathize with gay men. If she is neither, then she is the first person 1have ever heard of having this point of view. Again, all the females I have talked to have the same point of view as me except one, and she was a lesbian. I was very verbally abused by tori’s letter for no reason and would like an apology, thank you. By the way 1 am not a very religious person but someone told me that God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. In the third letter 1 was called narrow minded, neurotic, a homosexual hater and a fag beater. 1 guess since you couldn’t properly
support your point of view, you had to resort to name calling. That works in grade school but not here. I agree that public displays of affection are not confined to homosexuals. The only problem is that most people don’t want to see it if ‘it involves two homosexuals but don’t really care if they see it if it involves two heterosexuals. In Nicholas Dobbing’s letter, the only problem is that he assumed that 1 am “homophobic.” Well the word does not exist in any dictionary but I assume it to mean “scared of homosexuals.” No, I am not. If I happen to meet a homosexual in a dark alley, running away would be the second last thing I would do. Beating him up would be the last. The reason I was so shocked when 1 walked into the GLLOW coffeehouse meeting was because I was not prepared to walk into a room with 30 or so homosexuals. Maybe some day I might walk in and give them my two cents worth even though it probably wouldn’t do very much good. To Bruce James’ and Sean Richens’ letters, I will respond by saying that my point of view is not ignorant and disgusting and there is not hint of discrimination in my letter. 1 said it before and I will say it again: I am not disgusted by homosexuals, 1am disgusted by the sexual act that they perform. My point of view is held by more than just me, it is held by most heterosexuals. We all know that homosexuals are people so they have rights also. There is nothing we can do to keep their frolicing out of the public’s eye and their sob stories out of the newspapers. But as matter of decency, please, we all have had enough.

Group calls English spelling irrational ’ TORONTO (CUP) -- “Our speling desperatelv needs tu be simliefied. reformed, and rasionalized. It iz inevitabel that this refomasion wii ocur. The suner, the better.” Some of the above words might look funny, but the Simplified Spelling Society of Canada, which penned them, insists the more-phonetic spelling is simpler, more rational and will eventually be easier to understand. The three-year old group calls current English spelling “a disgusting mess” that has caused among other problems, an illiteracy rate of 20 per cent in Canada. “English is by far the Western world’s worst language,” says the SSSC’s president Ted Culp. We use “ph” when we mean “f’, “gve” when “g” would suffice and add letters that don’t do anything, like the “b” in dumb.” The group wants people to simplify their spelling and has drawn up 13 rule changes as phase one of the prqject. Despite the enormity of the task, Culp says it is inevitable that we will revise our spelling. “The present system is so irrational, it will collapse like a house of cards.” Already, he notes, there have been some changes, primarily in American usage. The “our”

ending is changing to “or”. “re” as in centre to “et-” and simplified words like “nite” and “thru” are popping up. Culp admits there are difficulties in trying to overhaul a spelling system and says some have been overcome while others are unresolved. People will still be able to read books written in the old way. he says, because the new system will be phased in. Eventually, the old books will wear out and ones with revised spelling will be published. As for learning a new system, Culp says it will be simple, especially for young people who aren’t as tied to the old style. “The more you use it the more comfortable you become with it,” says the Toronto-area high school teacher.. “It’s become very difficult for me to spell in the normal way.” However, there are snags. Culp says about 16 new letters
will be needed and admits there will be problems because different countries pronounce words different ways. Culp won’t say how many members the society has. only that they are “thinly spread” across Canada. The group has plans for a dictionary and a newspaper to spread the gospel of simplified spelling. In the past, there have been attempts in other countries to reform spelling, some more successful than others. Portuguese, Dutch, Turkish and Chinese all have undergone reforms. A Simplified Spelling Society cropped up in Britain at the end of the last century, enlisting the support of notables like George Bernard Shaw and Lord BadenPowell.

The-protestors marched in front of the Mall for nearly 20 minutes, then walked into the office of Waiter McLean, the Progressive Conservative MP for Waterloo North. Chris Reid, the chairman of the ACT for Disarmament Coalition of the Waterloo area, read a press release to McLean’s staff, condemning the Canadian participation in the arms race. The sentiments of the participants were that the protest went much better than the testing of the cruise, wMch again ended with the crash of the missile. Photo by Joe Sary
SVA Program,needs volunteers The Student Vocational Advisor (SVA) Program is looking for new SVAs for the next fall/ winter term. The SVA Program, which helps students with career planning and job search, has been in existence since January 1986, Colleen Bawn, a third year Planning student, is one of six Student Vocational Advisors.. The following is an inside look at what Colleen does as an SVA and the benefits she has received from the program. What does a SVA do? The SVA’s primary responsibility is to counsel and advise students on matters of career planning and job search. During her office hours in the science faculty, Colleen answers questions mostly on resume writing and creative job search techniques. Performing outreach programs is another responsibility of the SVA. SVAs are encouraged to be as creative with the outreach program as possible (which is a nice change from regular course work). For example, Colleen will be presenting an outreach program on March 12th in Physics 236 at I:30 pm., entitled “Pre-Optometry Students: Information and Alternatives.” The program will discuss admission requirements, what the Optometry School is actually looking for, the life of an optometry student and alternatives for pre-optometry students. SVAs are actively involved in promoting the program and their services. Colleen uses her experience in marketing the program to supplement her business course work. Finally, weekly SVA-meetings allow SVAs to exchange ideas, discuss problems and receive additional training and skill development.Of particular interest to Colleen is the experience she will gain in participating in the SVA recruitment campaign. She will be actively involved in the interviewing and selection of new SVAs and looks forward to being on the other side of the table. How has the SVA Program benefited Colleen? The SVA Program has given Colleen confidence in the job
search. She realizes that effective career planning and job search techniques can give her more control of her future, She also recognizes that the job search can be time consuming and demoralizing. Knowing this, Colleen encourages students to start career planning early and to take advantage of the services offered by the SVA Program. SVAs receive ongoing training in the program and are strongly supported by the Graduate Placement Staff. The program prides itself in its flexibility and freedom for students to develop their programs as they see fit. Colleen finds the program especially rewarding by meeting many different people, working with other
dynamic student SVAs and helping students with their careers. The Future of the SVA Program In response to the increasing interest in career placement and the tightening job market, the SVA program is here to stay. Individuals interested in developing their interpersonal skills, meeting people, and improving their ability and competence in their iob search are encouraged to apply to the position of Student ‘Vocational Advisor. An information session will be held on March 7th at 12:OO in Needles Hall, rm. 1020. Applications are available in Needles Hall, Room 1004, and are due March 14th.. For additional information contact Vicki Carlan, ext. 2494 or drop in on Colleen Bawn in ESC 252E.
Arts grads mis led by report? OTTAWA (CUP) --Critics ofa recent survey by the University of College Placement Association that found arts graduates in high demand by employers say students finishing arts degrees shouldn’t get excited. “The (association) is correct in as far as it goes, but there is still a strong demand for business and engineering students,” .said Pat Brand, manager of the Canada Employment Centre On-Campus at the University of
British Columbia. The survey said arts gradu: ates from the class of 1986 are in higher demand by on-campus recruiters across the country than students of computer science, agriculture or forestry. Arts graduates ranked third behind business and engineering students holding - bachelor’s degrees. Brand said the figure is slightly exaggerated and misleading. “The rank of the
number of interviews has risen from eighth to about fifth place by discipline, and only amounts for about 10 per cent of interview time,” he said. Business and engineering interviews account for about 60 per cent combined. he said, Brand said specific employers are still looking for specific faculties. and liberal arts students won’t be’ able to gauge their actual success until placements are filled. “This is always our busiest time of year, so stat1c ,Ltically we can only go on iwt lat the traffic is like. W&won’t kn IOW who’s been hiring who I ln ltil July,” he said. However, employers are intel -ested in abilities promoted bY a liberal arts background. “T ‘hey’re always looking for lad communication skills, fit :xibility and adaptability,” BI rand said. Canadian Federation of Stu-
dent chair Barb Donaldson says while liberal arts graduates may be attracting attention, their programmes aren’t well treated in times of university budget cuts. “The arts and the humanities tend to be more threatened. AIts are not often seen as a priority,” she said. Donaldson said arts programmes are in trouble because the federal government is pushing for more specialized and inrdustry-oriented ctirricula. She :sgd the ministry of employment and immigration’s new -Canada Jobs Strategy “is very much enthralled with high technology.” Jeff Holmes of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the federal .granting agency for the liberal arts, says the new survey confirms “what we’ve been telling people all along. Now if they can just put more money into social sciences.”

by Cindy Long Every time we put something into our bodies we run the risk that it will harm us in some way. Food poisoning is a risk we don’t often have to think about. We expect that the food we buy is safe and it usually is. However, food that is not stored or cooked properly can be home sweet home for the bacteria with which we share this world. A good rule to follow, although not fail-safe, is to use your nose. Bad food normally smells bad. Keep in mind that anything will go bad eventually. Try to eat leftovers as soon as possible. Any food containing milk products should be used within a few days, although hard cheese, properly wrapped, will keep for weeks. Fresh eggs should be a bit jelly-like when cracked. Watery whites mea$n you’ve been sold eggs that weren’t laid yesterday. Storing bread in the refrigerator can help slow down the molding process, but it goes stale faster. A bit of mold can be cut off and the rest of thk loaf will be fine. The best way to store any food is in airtight containers. As well as enjoying oxygen, many bacteria thrive at room temperature. Mayorinaise must be kept refrigerated, as it sours quickly and does not smell much different. Never store food in an opened can in the refrigerator. Spaghetti sauce in jars molds quickly if not refrigerated after being opened. Fresh vegetables should be used in $ few days, especially mushrooms. Chicken spoils quickly and, like all meat, must be cooked well in order to kill any bacteria. If you plan on cooking a whole chicken, make sure that the thickest part of the thigh reaches f8S0 F. Use a meat thermometer. Fresh poultry should be used in 24 hours, never store it longer than three days. If frozen it should be thawed, then cooked immediately. Never re-freeze thawed meat. Don’t leave cooked chicken at room temperature for more than two hours. Poultry, well-wrapped, keeps three to four days in the refrigerator and up to one month in the freezer. Green potato is poisonous and should be discarded. The same goes for the really green parts of, rhubarb. Store all leftovers in airtight containers. It is cheaper and environmentally safer than bu+ng.plastic wrap or zip-lock bags to save yoghurt, sour cream or margarine containers for storage. Potato Latkes or Potato Pancakes Ingredients: l ‘/2 onion, grated l 1 large or 2 medium potatoes, peeled, grated and drained. (Drain the grated potato by squeezing it over the sink. Messy, but fun.) l 2 eggs, beaten l oil for frying l 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour l 2 tbsp. chopped parsley (optional) l salt and pepper l 5 tbsp. instant dry milk powder Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Spoon a bit of the mixture into a fry pan and fry like small pancakes. Top them with applesauce. We’ve added basil, garlic and other spices as well. You could try grating some apple and adding it to the mixture before frying.

Increasing awareness focus of activities by Karen Plosz Imprint staff This year’s International Student Week will be the biggest ever. thanks to the efforts of the newly-formed U W International Student Board (ISB). H.H. Quah, chairperson of the ISB, says U W’s International Student Week, from March 3 to 7, will focus on the benefits international students bring to Canada, and will increase awareness of issues facing foreign students, such as differential fees. International Students often pay three times as much in tuition as Canadian students Organizing the week is one of the first ma-jor prqjects of the ISB. The Board hopes to increase awareness of their organisation, and motivate more students to participate. They hope to establish a structure which will draw the various associations together. Osford 0.jis, an ISB member, says, “1 don’t think the difference (between student associations) is wide enough to prevent us from coming together.” The ISB began operating in November. “It was one of my campaign promises, and it was well received,” said Federation of Students Pres!ident Sonny Flanagan. Although he had perfor political ceived it as being “initially representation,” Flanagan says, “it functionally should be both political and social.” It is the only political organisation for international students at UW, and is funded by the Federation of Students. UW Registrar T&or Boyes says there were 300 undergraduate international students, and 270 graduate students registered last fall. He estimates that, before the implementation of the present differential fee three years ago, the’ number of registered undergraduate students closer to 500. The 1SB is comprised of representatives of the ethnic student associations recognised by the Federation of Students. It includes the African, Carribbean, Indian, Jewish, Muslim, Palestine Heritage, ASEANS, Chinese, Ismaili, Korean, Pakistan and Ukrainian student associations. The Board is headed by a chairperson appointed by Student Council.
Foreign students “tend not to get involved in student politics. ”
“There is a need for a foreign and international student board here,” says Quah. Otherwise, foreign students “tend not to get invol-ved in student politics.” There is also, “a need for foreign students to educate Canadian students about issues they have to confront,” such as the differential fee issue. A big problem, says Quah, is student apathy. He attributes this to the importance of grades. ‘*Back home (iIt Malaysia), the educational sj/stern has an emphasis on the academic,” says Quah. Extra-curricu\ar involvement “is not well recognised .” In terms of motivating people to participate in the ISB, Quah says they have had a “limited success. It’s -just a beginning.” “We (the members of the ISB) are a very selected sample,” says Quah. More specifically, the present members are all “qualified to get involved” since they don’t have a language or communication problem. They also have the inclination’ to participate and meet with all the other groups. There/ are agencies (‘n-campus that help foreign students settle in, namely the Foreign Student Office at Needles Hall, and the Chinese Christian Fellowship (CCF). The university’s Foreign Student Office (FSO) offers certain programs and services, including the Host Families program, ‘International Friends, English Conversation Class, English Tutors, and getting American visas. In the fall term, there are special orientation and temporary accommodation programs, and facilities to renew immigration documents. However, the FSO is grossly understaffed, says Andrew McKenzie, a Barbadian student who is working with the FSO to more effectively communicate to foreign students the urgency of
the housing situation in Waterloo. There is only one counsellor for foreign students and a person who does the administrative work. “I’ve never used any of their services, but I know they really are trying,” says McKenzie. Another support service is the Chinese Christian Fellowship. Keenth Tan, a 27-year-old 2B English major from Singapore, attends CCF meetings and says, “The Ministry has been quite efficient in its areas, such as helping new students to settle down.” As well as providing help with the hunt for housing, CCF members help those who have problems ivith their study. “The CCF provides a sense of identity, especially for those who are Chinese.” He stresses, “We don’t get just Chinese members - we get Caucasians also, who help us.”
Huge differential fees called discriminatory Another, more political, organisation is the Ontario Commission on International Students (OCIS), which is an arm of the Ontario Federation of Students. OClS has lobbied to protest the ,differential fees. ,However, says Quah, “One of the failures of OFS is not many people are aware of OCIS. They don’t know how to get involved at the provincial level to change things.” Jecilyn l,im, President of the ASEANS Students Association, is full of ideas of how to improve support services so they will more effectively help students adJust to life in Canada. “If you come here straight, you have a housing problem, and especially when you’re all alone, it’s really difficult.” She would like to see a guide at the airport, and more student aids at the university for the first few weeks of the settling-in period. The services are there at the Foreign Student Office, says I.im, but “most people prefer to talk to people they know.” There is a problem with sexual harassment, says Lim. She has heard of several instances where friends have been harrassed. Shedescribes l‘emale students as getting somewhat vulnerable since, “a lot of students are lonely and pressured.” I.im, like everyone eL<e, expresses a concern for the underfundingsitua!ion and the escalation of the differential fees. She is concerned about the fact that this limits the number of foreign students that come to Canadian universities to those who can affordit. She would like to see more scholarships to aid foreign students in paying their tuition. Canada is moving to the point that soon “there will be a great drop in the number of foreign students.” Osford 0.iis, a 3rd year economics student from Trinidad, thinks it !s important to”bringal1 the facts to interested people” on the differential fee issue. “Some uninformed group set up the differential fee, and now don’t want to remove it,” due to the fact that foreign students’ fees, which are dispersed to all Canadian uni,versities, subsidise the university system. He sees the key as being able “to look at the other person’s point of view. You have to address the perception and show that you, as foreign students, are providing input to the economy.” “We bring jabs, cash and a foreign exchange into the country,” says Ojis. He quoted an OTIS report which stated that the average foreign student brings in roughly $10,000 Canadian into the economy - above tuition. “There should be some differential fees. However,, we pay too much.” Most foreign students in Ontario are paying $4,500 for two terms 01‘ school. Another problem, sa,ys Ojis, is “Canadians looking at international students as a people apart. I‘in sure it’s not something antagonistic; if someone is different, CCL‘may not go out 01‘ our way to see what they are like.” “The only real way there is contact is through classes and the Village. ‘l‘he other main way oi meeting people is parties,“and there is the lack 01 that connection, says Ojis. He cites the Friday night pub, “We are the World,” as a prime example of a chance where everyone - Canadian students included - can get involved.

There is a Taco Bell Restaurant , 85 University
The buses pulled up to a youth hostel where the March was to stay for the San Jose visit. All the marchers were tired from the long drive and still suffering from the three days at the border. There was no sense of anticipation of what was to come in San Jose, only relief that we had arrived In that atmosphere of exhaustion, the marchers were told that there was a large hostile group outside the hostel, armed with tear gas and rocks. It was Movimiento Costa Rica Libre. We were instructed to dampen handkerchiefs, hold. them to the mouth and move rapidly to the centre of the, hostel compound Only seconds after those instructions were given, the first tear gas canister exploded immediately beside the lead bus. The marchers rushed into the compound amidst the shouting from Costa Rica Libre and the chanting and singing from the Costa Ricansup port group assembled inside. It was a surreal scene. There was confusion everywhere, as back packs were UIllOaded
There were over 100 people from Costa Rica Libre. They were young, ranging from 15 to 25 years of age, both men and women They carried placards and wore badges with the Movimiento symbol. They chanted in unison, waving clenched fists, shouting that the marchers had AIDS; “Mother-fucker communists go home”; “Terrorists”; “Out of Costa Rica leftist soldiers disguised as Peacemakers.” They burned a Soviet flag and eventually began throwing more tear gas and rocks and bricks which destroyed all the hostel windows facing the street. As well, eight Costa Rican supporters of the March were injured; one lost an eye. Marchers very quickly retreated into the buildings where they stayed for the entire barrage (about 3 hours). We did not respond to the shouting or rocks but did findfour Costa Ricans who had rocks in their pockets inside the hostel compound, but were able to prevent them from thowing the rocks. Those four turned out to be members of Costa Rica Libre, who had infiltrated the crowd of Costa Rican supporters. While the attacks happened, the San Jose security for ces who were on hand did nothing. They stayed to one side without attempting to even take the names of those with rocks and tear gas, let alone trying to stop them. It
was eventually made known by the chief of security, Colonel Luis Chavez, that the March would have to leave the next day. Shortly after that announcement was made, Benjamin Piza Escalante arrived and was greeted with a hug from the other co-founder of Costa Rica Libre, Bernal Urbina Pinto. Pizathenleftthe mob, crossedthe street andshook hands with Chavez. Ten minutes later the crowd dispersed The situation in the hostel continued in confusion There was talk of resisting a forced eviction from the country. There was further talk of aims and the fundamental nature of the, March. The discussion lasted through the night and would continue for the entire march, but then., when the time came for the security to put the foreigners out of the country, people went voluntarily. Everything that followed in the March for Peace in Central America must be interpreted in light of what happened in Costa Rica. ,In Nicaragua, we were greeted warmly and allowed much freedom to roam in contrast to the cold and restrictive greeting we received in Costa %ica. The march met with many people in small towns and cities. We stayed with campesinos in coffee coops We saw poverty and the enects of revolution and war. Marchers were treated as heroes and shown&e culture of the gast as well as the determinationto press onto the future. Yet, in light of what happened in Costa Rica, this was-a hospitality between coconspirators, not strangers meeting together overcommon concerns. In Honduras and El Salvador, the media were ominous in their reports. The Honduran media reported both what it saw as evidence that the march was communist from what happened in Costa Rica, as well as quoting government sources that the March would not be allowed to enter. In El Salvador, there was simply the statement by the Minister of Immigration, Bene Garcia Aranoea, that the government “would not be able to control the death sqm.”
*Lne nondumn position was accurately reported The March spent almost a week, from about the 27th of December to past New Year, at the Nicareguan/Honduran border. We were met each day with a line of about 80 soldiers - the Honduran “Cobra” force, reportedly responsible for over a 100 disappearances in Honduras in December 1985. All the presentations of visas, pleas for entry, singing of songs, vigils and silent meditation at the Honduran border were to no avail. Honduras was impenetrable. And so it was with the diplomatic visits to El Salvador. Only a few of the leaders saw the country of El Salvador, the March was not allowed entry. What Costa Rica had started, Honduras and El Salvador furthered. InGuatemala, the March was not allowed to conduct any of its planned agenda. People entered Guatemala in smaller groups, split up to meet with some of the Guatemala support committees. But only in Mexico couldthe March for Peace in Central America conduct its business as it had, somewhat, inpanama and Nicaragua, but then Mexico is not considered to be a part of Central America by many-Central Americans. Still there was a large recep tion in Mexico City with many thousands turning out. The point is though, that at places where a confrontation could have happened, where the March could have made a stand, it didnot - not inCosta Rica, Honduras or El Salvador. It could not make such a stand mostly because it did not have the American media behind it. There was very little international pressure applied on governments antagonistic toward the March. American pressure would certainly have had an influence, but that would have been going against stated American policy. Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala could simply wash their hands of the situation - the threat of having their people exposed to other perspectives and being given the occasion to express themselves ‘in such an international context. There was no reason to let the March pass and thus, in most respects, the March failed in those countries. Still, not being allowed into Honduras and El Salvador, or being allowed in the waywe were in Guatemala, had some positive effects too. People saw the fear of their own government toward ideas, and they saw the force that would be used against those ideas. That knowledge can be a powerful thing; it can strengthen people’s resolve. Besolve can lead-to action and action to change. Some people now know the ways ideas can be squashed before they can come in from the outside. They may have known already, about how ideas are squashed as they rise spontaneously in their country. Because of the March, though, another side of their governments’ faces were exposed
The problem with the kind of resolve that knowledge brings to people in Central America, however, is that they become resolved to fight an animal that is equally resolved to fight back Further to the presence of the “Cobra” force at the Honduren/Nicaraguanborder, those in Honduras who went to greet and support the March were detained, 40 were arrested, and the rest were sent
back No word has been heard from them since. In El Salvador, the March committee decided to stage anationwide march, despite the fact that our international group was not allowed into the country. During that march, at least one man, Brigidio Sanchez, a father of eight, was arrested and tortured He is still in custodyand.his family has no access to him. The rest of Salvadoranmarchers were forced to sleep on the highweybefore being turned back and dispersed in the city of San Salvador. In countries where death lists and death squads decide thousands of fates, a March for Peace can be more a trap than that of a liberating force - symbol of hope or not. A risk is taken when being associated with “communists.” It is a long term risk lasting far past the time when the “Internationals” leave. For the 40 Hondurans and Brigidie Sanchez, the risk was evident evenbefore the march entered those countries. In Panama, Costa Rica, and maybe Guatemala, the process may tab longer, but those countries are certajn.lynotbeyondkeepingsuchlistsand using activities like peace marching as evidence of treasonous activity.
It was a difficult issue for the March to decide the responsibility that it bore for the arrest and the future of the people who helpedwith or supported the March. The stakes were very high, but it was felt that ultimately, the decision lay with those whose lives were affected Their decisions would be made with a fuller knowledge than those on the March. After all, the lives were of Central Americans who lived in Central America and who were familiar with their own countries. Despite that, there was still an unshakeable feeling that the March shared in the came of those arrests. So, people both in and out of the March are left wonder ing whether the March was too successful. Indeed, there were many fundamental questions asked: should “Inter nationals” stage their political protests at the scene of the crime, so to speak? Are they an imposition and a drain on the people whose cause they champion? The consequences of the March are still indeterminable. Certainly it was a good pioneering effort to be learned from for future marches. It brought together those who participated and those Central Americans who watched It let Europeans, through their media, see things that would not have otherwise been seen But then Europe does nothave much influence on what goes on in Central America. The March did little for Americens. It was an historical event linking many people in a region which contains just about every type of conflict known to man North/South, East/West, racial, between the sexes, and religious. But the March was also an example of how fragmented even peace makers cenbe. The long meetings - the perpetual meeting - about what the posture of the March ought to be, was never resolved except by the pressures of the circumstance. That was the case at the Costa F&an border, in San Jose, at the Honduran border and in Guatamala. There was never a time when the March stood on its own feet. It was timid to the point of powerlessness. It lost all control of its destiny andcouldchellenge nothing on its own To get to the end somehow seemed to be a satisfactory goal. There was no question about non-violent resistance. The marchers were not prepared for it. Further, there was little direction about specific political agendas proposed by the March. This was mirrored in the ambiguities of the slogans it carried As well, there was much unresolved debate over pragmatic questions such as: how much walking versus busing should be done; how self-sufficient with food and lodging the March out ought to be; or whether cities or the countryside should be favoured
The participants were diverse; there were Buddhist monks and Australian solidarity-workers, French Canadians, Spaniards, Americans and Central Americans. Opinion on things reflected the breadth of the perspectives. Though the problems encountered couldultimately be blamed for a lack of preparation, it would seem that no amount of preparation could resolve some of the fundamental differences of opinion within the March Was it there to challenge Central American governments or the U.S. government? Or was it there simply to meet people and as a,witness to their suffering. There are now at least 350 westerners who have important stories to tell. And there are many more Central Americans who have seen a little bit of hope and who have gained knowledge. They, both marchers and Central Americans, have witnessed firsthand both the forces that exist to resist change and, by that, the starkness of the need for change. The cards were, in a way, laid on the table in a struggle that is by no means over. Eventhough the deck is being restacked, the nature of the game is, more known and the next hand will be easier to play.

Chatten’s return to, UW well received
by Dave Lawson -The CC Great Ha!! is a tough place to play in, especially when the crowd make up is constantly shifting. Especially when so much is riding on a good hob. Especially when it’s your own Alma Mater. But when Glenn Chatten and his band played the CC for Tuesday’s Midday Music concert, people stopped to listen. Some people even came to listen. No small accomplishment, to elicit such responses in a venue where students, by and large, are more concerned about midterms than having a good time. We’ve seen Chatten before at Waterloo he is a graduate himself, having studied at St. Paul’s College, performing at its annual Black Forest Coffeehouse. Chatten has spent years nurturing a career in the music biz, and with an album lurking on the horizon and a contract to play at the Festival of Friends, he’s beginning to see the hard work pay off. A fedora still perches on top of his head, and a shiny blonde Takamine guitar still swings time for his tunes. But there’s a new, and weiifounded confidence here: gone are the seifconscious bald jokes, gone is the annoying lack of vocal control, gone is the mediocre execution of just too many covers by Canadian artists, He’s looking for a unique sound, and a six-piece band that includes keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, and two backing vocalists are we!! on the way to providing him with this sound. Chatten masks social criticism and ‘political commentary behind the gentleness . of rhythmic folk/pop tunes. He might be the first social critic next to Bruce Cockburn to b get a.m. airpiay!

Instrumentally, the sound alludes to what might be termed the “new folk” sound of Scott Merritt and Bruce Cockburn, but songwise the music is more pop-oriented, and Chatten compensates for his lack of virtuosity by employing keyboardist/arranger Paul Stouffer, who does both his instument and his front man a great deal of credit. Stouffer plays his DX7 with a keen pop sensibility and a sense of musical insight sadly lacking in the industry’s younger hacks, and his arrangments allow the music to breathe. Unfortunately, and added percussionist fared less successfully - the impression was that either Dale Marcel (borrowed from Good Food) was unfamiliar with the material or that Latin percussion toys are not his fortk. Much of his rhythmic punctuation seemed gratuitous and sometimes poorly thought out, iacking tightness with the tasteful and subtle drumming of Mark Eberhardt, his counterpart on kit. For the most part, though, the overall sound of the band was quite tight putting the talents of its members to very good use. Reggae-tinged tunes like Lebanon were especially reminiscent of Bruck Cockburn; no plagiarism suits here, but Chatten’s infiuences are easily discernable. His tributes to his hero don’t stop with styiistic~simjiarities: he is one of few musicians who dares to perform Cockburn’s material. On Tuesday he played Cockburn’s Laughter, If I Had Rocket Launcher and Wondering Where the

The first half dragged a little with the plodding of Beethoven’s Concerto for Piano, Violin, and Cello in C Major Opus 56, which is viewed 8s a learning or experimental piece for Ludwig.

helpful Don McManus. The play proper, with Bruce Pitken in the role of Peter, was performed with a wonderful combination of iive actors, masks and puppets. The puppets - the bird, the . duck and the cat - were manipulated in full view of the audience by an actor wearing a mask similar to the face of the puppet. I thought it was a really stupid idea at first, but they used this combination of dramatic focus very effectively to add unexpected twists to the performance. The two adult characters, Peter’s Uncle and Grandfather, required huge, oversized masks that looked great and also had the effect of towering over Peter, who was beautifully childlike. The wolf was portrayed as a huge metallic robot with red eyes that lit up which was perhaps too convincing for the youngest
members of the audience, some of whom were very scared during the pursuit scenes. It was a very active, phsyciai show. The set was simple, with a candystripe gym set in the centre that served many purposes, and allowed the ac tors a lot of flexibility in their performances. The audience was very responsive, and one of the drawbacks to the show was that this was riot made use of. As we!!, the beginning went on a little too long for the little girl beside me who began to complain to her mother that she wanted to go home. But this was soon alleviated.

by Paul Done Imprint staff Cabaret Voltaire is one of the few bands today whose 12” singles are just as essential and worthwhile as their albums. Their complete mastery of the studio and absolute control over their music make the extended versions of their songs the definitive mixes as opposed to simply longer and more diffuse, as is themcase with most artists. I Want You is their latest, and possibly greatest, single. It throbs and pulsates like a coffee percolator gone mad, full of obscure noises and manic intensity. With each record, Cabaret Voltaire’s funk technique becomes more and more agile, to the point that the bass work on this song hidden though it may be - stands comparison with any conventional funk combo around. It
When played loud, I Want You easily manages to create that acute air of threat which the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain can only dream of. As strange as it may seem, it is a shame that this is such a def monster dance track since it is hard to grasp the sheer power of the song while shaking one’s booty. Cabaret Voltaire’ don’t fall into the commercial trap of the by-now-familiar “lnstrumental Version” on the b-side. The two extra tracks, Drink ‘Your Poison and C:O.M.A., unavailable on the album, are just as fab as the A-side. Drink Your.foison is a reasonably conventional hi-energy electro dance song with the twist that Steve Mallinder repeats, over and over, “Sit up, shut up and drink your posion,” in the darkest, most threatening whisper he can muster. C.O.M.A., on the other hand, is anything but conventional. At all levels it’s a jarring , slightly disorienting experience. Though the song itself has a melodic and rythmic theme, it is only used to connect the clips of other dissimilar songs which make up the body of the song’s content. Thus, like some warped, compressed classical symphony, it examines a multitude of different themes, always returning to the main, intitial motif. The-reason the song jars is that this whole process is done at a breakneck pace, without any attempt to develop any sort of cohesion. Frankly, I Want You is not for everyone - if you need the familiar and conventional then it’s best to leave this one alone since repeated listenings bring one no closer to the essence of a Cabaret Voltaire song. However, the extra attention and effort required to listen to this song reap more than proportional rewards.
by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff The timeiy departure of Japan into the musical hereafter was probably the best thing that ever happened to lead singer David Sylvian. While his former cohorts have waned into obscurity or, in the case of Mick Karn, have wallowed in the excessive depths of pretentious twaddle (with ex-Bauhaus leader, Peter Murphy) Sylvian has gone .on to produce better work than the Euro-glam-dance band ever attained. Words With the Shaman, an E.P. in three parts, is the logical extension of 1984’s resplendent Brilliant Trees with its emphasis on aural textures and soundscapes. The approach is esoteric and academic, almost to the point of being scientific, but, as the title suggests, Sylvian is more intriqued with musi-
cal spirituality and intuition than pedantic ambiance. While the guest musicians, including such luminaries as Holger Czukay, Jon Hassell, and Steve Jansen, also played a major role on Brilliant Trees, the new effort leaves behind the jazzier overtones and the throaty sonority of Sylvian’s singing, opting for indulgences in Oriental influences and Sylvian’s talents as a synth-wielding hypnotist. Pt. 1 Ancient Evening finds former Japan associate Steve Jansen’s percussion providing an expressive setting for the Eastern chants of a simulated priestess’ voice which weaves a mesmerizing spell. Jansen’s exotic rhythms are featured again on Pt. 2 Zncantation, creating a gently flowing atmosphere with Percy Jones’ fluid fretless bass. Pt. 3 Awakening ends the serene voyage into instinctual realms of sound and music. Given mostly to the gracefully swirling dervishes rising out of Sylvian’s keyboards, it is a fitting climax to the E.P. If you liked Brilliant Trees, Words With The Shaman would be a wise use of your money. many different musical styles with the thundering rhythms and sharp bass lines we have come to expect from Steel Pulse. The result is eight reggae songs, with elements of funk, rap, jazz, disco and blues, which provide exceptional melodies that you’ll find yourself humming in the shower days after you hear them. Also included on the record is a song by keyboardist Selwyn Brown, called Don’t Be Afraid, a more familiar dance-type reggae song which has the potential to become a hit on some mainstream skanking floors.
An excellent sf Jah music
by Joe Sax-y Imprint staff Steel Pulse, one of Jamaica’s premier reggae bands, have a habit of taking long dormant periods between releasing records, but they also have a habit of not disappointing their followers with their recordings. Their latest release, Babylon the Bandit, comes nearly two years after their previous record Earth Crisis, which took another two years to complete after the classic True Democracy. This new vinyl is another excellent collec-, tion of Jah music written mostly by the band’s front man David Hinds, who tries to blend in
The lyrical content of the record is also quite good, although there seems to be three too many love songs on it. The rest of the songs are all strong - especially Save Black Music and Not King James Version - both of which deal with the destruction of black heritage and culture, and Kick The Habit, which is about .. . well, hey, you’ll just have to guess or buy the record to find out.

by Tim Perlich Imprint staff With all the outstanding material in the Atlantic vaults recorded between 1947 and 1974, it would very difficult not to make a collection of exceptional quality - even if the collection contained seven volumes (14 records and 186 songs) like this one. There are so many recordings available, in fact, that if a seven volume collection were made of each of the seven four year segments in the document, you wouid still be merely scratching the surface of the Atlantic catalogue. Volume 5, spotlighting the years 1962-66, is a special one in that it marks the emergence of soul into the pop music vernacular. 1962 was the year The Falcons, who flaunted the leads of Wilson Pickett, Joe Stubbs, Eddie Floyd and Sir Mack Rice, cut the classic I Found A Loue. Pickett’s screaming testimony over the chillins vocal, saxophone, and one guitar backdrop blended the deeply emotional tension of gospel with the call and response of rhythm &blues, stripped down to its most basic form. The final result is considered to many to be the point of transition from rhythm and blues to soul. Similarities can be found in Solomon Burke’s If You Need Me. Like Wilson Pickett, Burke was well versed in gospel music and, being a minister, the preaching style of his recitation came as almost second nature. The close tie to Pickett doesn’t end there. If You Need Me was written by Pickett and sent to Atlantic as a demo. Boss man Jerry Wexler liked/the song and gave it producer Bert Berns who promptly brought Burke into the studio to record it. Meanwhile Pickett kept shopping around until the Double L label in New Orleans decided to pick up the song and issued it despite Burke’s cover. Both version sold extremely well with Burke ultimately edging out Pickett on the charts because of the higher quality (read ‘more palatable’) production.
by Paul Done ‘X Moore, lead singer of the Redskins, journalist and all-around socialist-type guy must have been a confused youth. Where most of us lie in bed dreaming about being Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger or some other luminary, poor X sat up in bed dreaming about being the Clash (all 4 of ‘em), Sam and Dave (both of ‘em), Che Guevara, Lev Bronstein, and Nikolai Lenin. From this hodge-podge of influences emerged the Redskins - shock troops in the quest for international socialism (“Neither Washington Nor Moscow But International Socialism”). Having issued 2 singles in the last 2 months, the Redskins have equalled what is normally 18 months’ record output for them. The Power Is Yours . .. . released on Decca: their usual record company, is their latest while’ Kick Over The Statues (which Decca refused to release) was released just before Christmas on Abstract, an EMI subsidiary. The Power Is Yours is a slowed down, white-hot soul scorcher which serves as a platform for the usual Redskins polemic. The huge, hulking pauses in the middle of the song and gritty, intense vocals from X make this song a thoroughly unlikely A-side for a single. On these 2 records the Redskins have refined their punk/soul mix down to a fierce, inseparable solution proving that rabid idealism IS a valid substitute for heartfelt spirituality when singing soul. On the B-side of The Power . . . the Redskins manage to turn the Wilson Pickett love song 99% (Won’t Do) into an anthem of political and idealistic commitment. The unthinkable has been done: a white person has covered a soul classic without creating a monster of travest. Kick Over TheStatues shows the Redskins doing what they do best: churning out the slogans at uitra-high speed and insane volume. Decca would not release this record (from which all royalties go to the ANC and South A%can Trade Unions) apparently because of some questionable lyrical content: “At the end of an era. the first thing to go
The following year Picket was signed to 1Atlantic but didn’t find his groove until he was sent down to the Stax studio in Memphis where he cut In The Midnight Hour - the single most covered song in soul music with over 70 versions. It is from the Stax/Volt group that many of the songs are taken. From the shouted, double barrel vocals and wild dance blitz of Sam and Dave’s Hold On I’m Cornin to Otis Redding’s warm and tender These Arms of Mine, some of the most inventive and diverse music of the sixties was being produced by Jim Stewart and Steve Cropper (of the MG’s) for the Stax label. Whereas Motown exhibited the clean-cut refinement of charm school, Stax turned over all the rocks and lifted the garbage c&n lids to lay bare the grimey raunch of back alleys. Just dig the gutteral forcefulness of Otis’ Respect or the groove - the divine, life-affirminggroove of You Don’t Know Like I Know. If it’s soul that you want to learn more about, Volume 5 is your text book.

Also available at the moment are the two definitive Reskins’ songs Unionize! and Lean On Me which were originally released as a double A-sided single in mid-1983. They are contained, along with other fine tracks by the likes of The Sisters of Mercy, The Three Johns and the Newtown Newtown Neurotics on a compilation called They Shall Not Pass. The album is a collection of some of the best material released on CNT: an independent label which has since gone broke (and consequently made all of these tracks impossible to find elsewhere). At a reduced import price (around $10) it’s a steal of a deal! Whether or not you agree with the message of the Redskins they are a truly groovy band,. Never before has sloganeering been so straight-faced, serious and single-minded. Idealism provides these lads with the energy to play at 150 beats per minute tot- extended periods of time (then dgaln maybe they just borrowed some of Keith Richards’ drugs). Remember: “It is better to lose the fight and win the battle of ideas than to win the fight and have no ideas at all.” .+ and if you don’t feel like fighting you can always just get up, stomp your feet and move your butt for a little while.
Gilliam’s film profoundly by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff Much to the chagrin, not to mention extreme embarassment, of Universal Studios, Terry Gilliam’s stunning vision of the not-so-distant future, Brazil, has finally opened to general audiences across North America. Saying that the movie was simply too bizarre and unconventionally unsettling to attract the mindless hordes of teenagers to theatres, necessary for outrageously lucrative success to be. possible, Universal withheld the film’s release until Gilliam relented and allowed something like eleven of the most insanely convoluted and disquieting minutes of the film to be snipped. .A stalemate ensued, resolved only when pressure from Gilliams (who took out a full-page ad reading, “Dear Universal Studios, Why won’t you release ,my movie, Brazil?“) and heaps of critical drool convinced the execs that they could only lose by keeping it tucked away in the vaults. Gilliams, the eccentric genius of Monty Python fame, has imbued Brazil with the same sense of the absurdity of life and the material world that made The Meaning of Life such a hilariously ludicrous film. Nothing makes sense in this world and the audience finds itself more often than not laughing at things it would otherwise find appalling if the incident was on the news. The title is derived from the Bauhaus art and architectural movement’s idea of a utopian city of total integration, all buildings, public works, etc. are interconnected to work perfectly and which is named Brazilia. Brazil is a wry commentary on this; everything is connected to everything else but the result is a completely jumbled, ineffectual mess. The comparisons to 1984 are inevitable, but it would be grossly unfair to suggest that Brazil is nothing more than a surreal 1984. Where 1984 is stonily and inhumanly barren, society being characterized by the cold, pervading glare of Big Brother, Brazil is visually staggering and frighteningly vibrant with even those supposedly in charge being engulfed by a living
by Carol Fletcher imprint staff Elspeth Cameron has created quite a literary scandal with her latest book, Irving Layton: A Portrait. The biography was four years in the making and the result is an extensively researched overview beginning with Layton’s birth in Romania to his present life in Canada. Often referred to as a man who has become a “legend in his own time”,(often accordingto himself) Irving Layton has come to be considered one of Canada’s most flamboyant and controversial authors. Recognized early in his poetic career as a unique and powerful voice,’ Layton’s influence over the last thirty-five years has been enormous; he truly was at the, creative centre of a renaissance in poetry writing in this country, publishing close to one thousand poems in numerous books, anthologies, magazines, broadsheets and newspapers. Cameron took on the formidable task of examining Layton’s life, although today both deny who approached who to tackle the project. The reason for this denial is because Layton disassociated himself from the biography upon publication. He maintains that Cameron wrote;hapter after chapter of inac-

curacies. In fact, he has since published his own autobiography Waiting for the Messiah. Cameron does lavish praise upon Layton the poet, but not without psychoanalysing Layton the man. For example, in describing Layton’s character, Cameron states, “His prodigious, almost electric energy, his coarse peasant features, his mane of black, then grey, then white hair, his attractive, resonant, booming voice, the intensity of a healthy male presence that conveys the intention of dominating physically, sexually or rhetorically -- all add up to a charisma that continue to be unmistakeable even in his mid-seventies. To some, Layton’s physical presence is noxious in the extreme.” There is almost a humourous irony in the fact that Layton often did poorly at academics (with the exception of English) and he was generally a trouble maker at university, writing contentious prose for his school newspaper. As Cameron notes: ‘His lower-class Jewish background provided him with a vantage point from which he could clearly see the effete gentility and conservative’ repressions of Canadian society.. In the face of puritanism, he championed rude earthiness; he baited elitism with revolutionary threats; he disarmed gentility with vulgarity; he countered materialism with idealism. In a culture that was conservative, rational and tight, he celebrated the life of the body, the emotions and the spirit.” If you are into biographies, then this one is a must! It is thoroughly’researched, well-written and insightful. Irving Layton: A Portrait is worth reading simply because it has evoked . . , . such a reaction trom the man in question.

revelation that Brazil is more contemporarily realistic than we’d like to think. To even attempt a condensed plot summary would be about as ridiculously futile as stating the contents of the Encyclopedia Brittanica in a dozen pages, but the implications of the individual being pitted against mass consumerism run amok are obvious. Sam, who works for the Department of Information, seems to be the only one who sees anything vaguely strange in the government’s practice of giving receipts to the wives of men they abduct for unpaid debts. Sam’s mother, played with decadent luxuriousness by Katherine Hellmond, personifies this society and is a case in point of the old motif of “the- emperor’s new clothes”. Placing all her trust in the dubious benefits of cosmetic surgery and outlandish fashions, she unflinchingly gulps down absolutely anything that *offers empty promises of social status. Even Sam’s best friend, who Michael Palin portrays with a charming sort of ruthlessness, is disillusioned that Sam does not find a promotion to the prestigious, but frantically hectic Department of Information Retrieval, the most alluring of offers. Only the seemingly peculiar Tuttle (Robert De Niro in what is probably his most unrecognizably humourous role), a renegade, free-lance heating engineer, offers any respite from the world of vacuous masses. But ultimately, you are left with an overwhelming ambiguity. The intermingling of the unreal world with the fantastical dream sequences in which Sam envisions himself as a silver-armoured bird fighting to save the angelic Jill from the constricting clutches of the world, makes the line between reality and illusion indefinable. Even the ending only serves to cloud things more, taking what seems to be a happy ending and dashing it to pieces. And this is where Brazil’s greatness lies. It poses many questions but, realizing that they are unanswerable, doesn’t even attempt to offer any solutions. To make a film so visually unsettling and profoundly disturbing is a massive achievement.

l8 .ARTS. 1I Bishop to bring musical wares to Waterloo Imprint,
Bishop’s music spans a wide variety of styles. Her early music (contained on herfirst album, Grandmother’s Song) was, heavily blues oriented. However, the blues compo-. nent has declined somewhat in her recent music, .being replaced by a more contemporary blend of blues and folk.
bv Marv Jov Aitken Imprint stati Nationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Heather Bishop will be appearing in concert at the UW Humanities Theatre as part of five days of events sponsored by UW’s Women’s Centre and the International Women’s Day Committee to help celebrate International Women’s Day. Since heading out on her own in 1977, Bishop has toured extensively across Canada and the U.S. She has performed concerts at universities and coffee houses as well as at large and small folk festivals. Although much better known in Western Canada, Bishop is beginning to attract a loyal following in Eastern Canada as well. Locally, she has played at the Northwinds Folk Festival on Toronto Island the last two years. She also teamed up’ with Scott Merritt to do a peace benefit concert on campus 16 months ago.
The biggest influences on Bishop’s early musical career were Buffy Ste: Marie and Nina Simone. More recently, she has been performing music composed by singersongwriter (and good friend) Connie Kaldor. Bishop, contacted last week by Imprint, explained that a’ number of years ago “Connie. was doing theatre so I recorded some of her plained that a number of years ago, “Connie was doing theatre so I recorded some of her music because she wasn’t.” Kaldor compositions recorded by Bishop include Madame Lonely from Celebration and the inspirational There Comes a Time from I Love

for her feminist
sidered “unacceptable conditions.” As a result she was again forced to raise the money for the album on her own. This consisted of borrowing “small amounts of money from her friends,” Bishop said. In addition to a number of gentle love ballads and other songs which reaffirm the positive qualities of women, Bishop’s most recent album, I Love Women Who Laugh; also contains songs concerned with more broadly defined social issues such as the environment (Our Silence) and the arms race (The Holocaust). Bishop explained that Our Silence came from a direct experience. I was singing at a conference on the environment in Kirkland Lake and the experience had a very profound effect on me. One of the results was the song Our Silence. Bishop believes strongly in the power of music to produce positive social change. She explained that she “comes from a political background” which included demonstrating against the Vietnam war. Yet Bishop stressed that her social activism is primarily focused in her music. “I’m active in that, for me, my music is the outlet for my concern.”
such as Celebration and A Woman’s Anger, aswell as her wonderful version of the irreverant classic Did Jesus Have ‘Baby Sister? Although she is certainly best known for her “women’s music”, Bishop has always maintained a keen interest in performing for children. In fact, two of her last three albums have been children’s albums. She says that “the kids were the ones who got me to record (children’s music).” Her first children’s album, Belly Button contains some delightful modern children’s classics such as If You Love A Hippopotamus and Bellybutton (both written by Connie Kaldor), as well as the old time favourite When You Wish Upon a Star. Her second children’s album, The Purple People Eaters was released last year:Bishop says that “it is the best album [producer] Dan [Donahue] and I have done.” As with a number of other alternative artists such as Holly Near, Bishop has founded her own record company, Mother of Pearl Records. “It was Dan Donahue who suggested I do my own album,” Bishop said. To date, Bishop has produced five albums on her own label, including the two children’s albums. Bishop noted that it is “very difficult to raise the capital to make your own album.” While making her latest album she was refused bankloans except under what she con-

Most of the audience agreed that it had been a good show and had accomplished the small miracle of getting the crowd on their feet. They are definitely one of the fine bar bands around today.

Defeat Western 3-O:
’V-ballers are OUAA West champs Last Saturday night in the P.A.C. the men’s varsity volleyball team achieved one of its primary goals of the season by winning the Ontario West Division Championship. The Warriors accomplished this goal by defeating the Western Mustangs three games straight by scores of 15-9, 15-6, and 15-9. The capacity crowd was treated to a match in which both teams fought tooth and nail for every point. The match, as it turned out, was just like all the other matches between these teams this year - intense, action-packed volleyball. The Warriors entered the match with uneasy confidence knowing that the Mustangs were a team that had the ability to get very hot very fast. The game plan was one that Waterloo had used on numerous occasions against Western. It mvolved making the younger Mustangs handle a great deal of responsibility both in the front court and in the back court. Judging by the result, it seems the plan worked. The difference in the match was the ability of the Warriors to serve extremely tough and the fact that theyr serving reception was flawless. Several serves were missed by the Warriors, but when looking at the ratio of missed serves to aces, the ace frequency was higher. The wide open Waterloo gym seems-to play havoc with long serves and several of the Warriors took advantage of this fact. Scott Shantz’s serve had so much movement on it that physics professors would have had a hard time describing the ball’s motion. Through practice in the gym, the Warriors have grown accustomed to the problems the air currents cause and therefore aren’t effeted as much. This was evident as the Warrior service reception was exceptional. As a consequence, Owen Jones could run the full Waterloo offense which kept the Western blockers guessing all night. Jim - Cooke, coming back from an ankle sprain
a couple of -weeks ago, was back in true form both in blocking and spiking. At one point in the match Cooke was involved in four consecutive stuff blocks. Dave Ambrose concealed the fact that he had sprained his ankle earlier in the week and turned in a performance that was more than notable. The Warriors went to their bench only twice and no change of quality was evident on the floor. Scott Murphy, Jim McKinnon and Ian Gowans all played well, showing that the Waterloo bench is extremely deep in good players. With the win the Warriors have qualified to host the Ontario Championship Saturday at 2:00 p.m. Admission is $2 and Waterloo’s opponent will be the York Yeomen. The Yeomen have been a puzzling team this season as their starting lineup seems to change day by day and even game by game. This presents a problem to the Warriors as they don’t know what the Yeomen will throw at them in terms of lineups. As a result the team has worked extensively on their own offense and defense and enters the match saying that the York team will have to stop them to win. There is no question that the match on Saturday will be a good one and, judging by the fan support at last Saturday’s game, there should be a good crowd. Come out and help the Warrior team reach its other primary objective of the season - a berth in the Canadian Championships. Afternotes; The Warriors placed four people, out of a possible seven, on the Ont. West All Star team Dave Ambrose, Owen Jones and Jim Cooke were all picked and Rob Atkinson was chosen coach of the year in the Ontario West Division. For four players, Tom Oxland, Owen Jones, Jim Cooke and Ian Gowans, this will be their last chance to perform in front of a Waterloo crowd, as they will graduate this term. They would like nothing more than to end their Waterloo career with a berth in the Nationals.

Women’s basketball team places fourth in .finals
by Colin Mc Gillicuddy Imprint staff The UW basketball Athenas improved upon last year’s showing at the OWIAA Cham\ pioships with a fourth place finish. After a gruelling six hour bus ride to Laurentian last Thursday, the Athenas took on York in the quarter-finals. The Eastern teams often look disparagingly upon the West, but Waterloo gave York all they could handle to send the game into overtime at 5 l-5 1. A tight finish saw Waterloo pull ahead to stay in the 58-56 final. Buoyed by their victory, the
Athenas went into the semifinal against Toronto with confidence. However, the Blues were determined to crush this Waterloo team which they saw as a real threat. Toronto very wasted no time in illustrating why they are #l in Canada, as they routed the Athenas in the first half. Waterloo was unable to score until seven minutes had ticked off the clock. The nightmare continued through the second half, as the Athenas lost 89-43. It was a disappointed and somewhat disheartened UW team that took the court against
Brock in the bronze medal game. Nonetheless, they went after their opponents, and were in control for most of the game. However, the Athenas folded in the end, destroyed by turnovers and poor rebounding. Brock’s hot foul shooting (100%) and strong baseline game contributed to their 65-52 victory. ,

Although the team would have preferred to take third place over their rivals from Brock, their finish was solid and commendable. In addition to the strong team showing at the tournament, it was an excep-
* Much of the credit must go to her for developing the women’s basketball program here at Waterloo, and this young team has given her a fine year to retire in. It is hoped that Warren, the as-
sistant coach, will stay on to continue the great job he’s been doing with the team.
Forward Kim Rau is the only player on the Athenas finishing, her final year with the team. Although her consistent offensive production and leadership will be missed’, there is an excellent young nucleus remaining. Adele Daly’s ball handling and defensive instincts, Sheila Windle’s hot shooting, M’ichele Campbell’s offensive wizardry, and Corinna Lueg’s cat-like quickness inside the paint - all will contribute to a highly com-
petitive team next year. The Athenas will be looking for another center and some more accurate outside shooting for next year. This, combined with Toronto’s imminent decline (five stars graduate), should provide for a very interesting 86-87 season. Congratulations are due once again to the players, coaches, and that handful of fans who all made this season special and entertaining. Good Luck next year! To those who care, Toronto and Laurentian advance to the CIAUs.
-Basketball Warriors in high -gear for playoffs by Steve Hayman Imprint staff Waterloo’s basketball Warriors closed their regular season with two strong wins over the two next best teams in the divsion, climbing to the country’s #8 ranking in the process, and then hammered Guelph 74-55 in the first round of the playoffs. The latter game was notable for the brief return of all-Canadian centre Randy Norris who has finally recovered from the problems with his knee. Waterloo travels to London this weekend for the West Division semi-finals at Western, playing McMaster tonight at 7:00 pm and, if they win, playing the winner of the Western-Laurier game Saturday at 2:00 pm. Fan buses leave today at 5:00 pm returning at 1l:OO pm and tomorrow at 12:OO pm. returning at 4:00 pm. Tickets are $3.00 and can be bought at the Fed office. A victory would send the team to the all-Ontario championship Monday night at the home of the East Divison winner. The Big Week in Review Warriors 92, Western 70 Waterloo put on an impressive effort over the previously #6 ranked Mustangs last Wednesday on Kazoo Night in London. The key to the lopsided 92-70 win? “McNeill,” coach Don McCrae simply state. “He played a super game. We really took Western off the glass in the last 5 minutes.” Contrary to last week’s mini-report, Paul Boyce led Warrior scoring with 24, as he, Peter Savich, Tom Schneider and Rob Froese all hit for double figures. Warriors 108, Brock 94 In overtime. That’s right, Waterloo outscored Brock 20-6 in the five-minute OT - an output equivalent to 160 points/ game - in spite of Boyce, Savich and Froese fouling out. A tremendous effort by the Warrior bench completely stymied the Badgers after a late Brock rally almost won the game in regulation time. McNeil1 was eight for eight from the free-throw line in another fine performance. “l’m gaining a lot of confidence,” he said later, “l’m playing more like I should be.”

The Warriors Band racked up another victory over the Brock band, which turned out to be a group from Laura Secord High that was unable to match Waterloo’s repertoire, volume or pure speed. “Turnovers. We just threw the damn thingaway,“adisappointed Brock Coach Garney Henley mused. “Our bench played great,” said Savich who observed the final ten minutes from the sidelines. “ 1 went out, the bench played better. Boyce went out, they played better still. Then Rob went out and they played best of all.” “It was nice to munch them,” Vilhelm Boggild observed after contributing to the impressive bench performance. Warriors 74, Gueiph 55 Tuesday’s playoff win over the hapless Gryphons was witnessed by the smallest, and certainly quietest, crowd of the year. “Who’s that tall guy warming up for Waterloo?“, we were all wondering... An extremely boring first half finished with Waterloo ahead only 33-27, but Warrior tempo and fan volume.picked up considerably in the second stanza, peaking with the Second Coming of Randy Norris, whose appearance for the first time since early January with two minutes left in the g+ne brought the crowd to its feet. However, it wasn’t very dramatic; he picked up two quick -“brutal”, he called them - fouls that had the crowd chanting “Foul out, Randy, foul out!” Unfortunately, time ran out on Norris and he was unable to duplicate the feats of Eddie Dragan, a Warrior of the early 70s known as Mr. 5-5-5 for his tendency to appear for 5 minutes, score 5 points and get 5 fouls. “1 was least happy with the first half, with our lack of team play,” McCrae analysed. “But defensively 1 was very happy. We could have held them to under 50.” Misquotes of the Week A certain Warrior has accused me of quoting him as saying he doesn’t appreciate the support of Warrior fans. My mistake. what Peter actually said was “I’m taking care of (former Warrior) Dave Burn’s cats.”
Warriors lose tough one toYork,
‘%!Cadman” Mitro posts 2:27.67 in 1000 ma event When Harvey Mitro defiantly announced several weeks ago that he would/decimate the ClAU qualifying standard for the 1,000 metre race at the U of T Indoor Track & Field Meet, his UW teammates thought he was mad. Even though Harvey is the defending OUAA gold medallist and CIAU silver medallist in this event, a repeat performance in ‘86 seemed unlikely considering that he had been sidelined since Christmas, when he injured his knee while training. To the surprise of his competitors, the “madn-l 5n ” made a triumphant return to the track ci! :,uit last Friday evening, and quickly made be ;<vers out of his critics as he posted an incredible 2:27.67 for the 1,000 metres; the second fastest time recorded in the country so far this year. Adding to the excitement of the race was the tactical running by teammate Mark Inman, who battled Mitro to the wire with his 2:27.89 finish. Although the main focus was on the battle being waged up front, a pack of Warriors trailed closely behind, including: Tony Degazon (2:33.13), Steve Scott (2:35.36), Tim Collins (2:36.40), Andrew Krucker (2:38.47), Shamir Jamal (2L40.60) and Mike Affleck (2:41.86). The sprint team collected U W’s other medals, as Scott Gallichan cruised a 1:24.06 for the runner-up position in the 600 metres. Hopefully, this effort is a sign that he is peaking for this weekend’s OUAA-OWlnA final, in which he could figure in the team scoring. Gallichan later anchored the 4 x 400 metre relay team of Degazon, Greg Martyn and Ron Hanic to post 3:37.05 for third. And the 4 x 200 metre relay squad, which consisted of John Clayton, Bram Wittenburg, Andy Garrison and Paul Slobodnick, stomped past WLU’s foursome to grab third in 1:36.5. On the 60 metre sprint straight away, Wittenberg dashed to the fastest showing, with his 7.40 second 3rd place finish in the heats. Less than .07 seconds separated our top four men. fn hot pursuit of Wittenberg were Hanic (7.41). Garrison (7.47) Clayton (7.47), Roger Kingdom (7.70) and Slobodnick (7.74). Bill Barnes hurdled to a 9.06 second place effort for 60 metres and Karen Little clocked the fourth fastest time in the country this year, with her 9.48 second showing. In solo efforts over the long sprint distance, Hanic, who doubles as a varsity rugby player, stormed to a 38.35 second finish to win his heat, and was closely followed by Martyn in 38.57 and Kingdom in 40.90. In the women’s 600 metres, Lee Ann Uniac toughed out a 1:50.43 second place performance, and will be teamed up with fellow rookie, Julie Madden, in this same event tonight.
Long jumpers Ken Berry and Andy Garrison extended themselves 6.32 and 5.81 metres into the pit, respectively. Although Berry managed 5th place overall, he was well short of his early season 6.75 metre effort that netted him a 7th place national ranking. However, in all fairness to Berry, he has been hampered by hamstring difficulties all term. Still, he hopes to be “kicking sand in the faces of his competitors” this weekend as he tries to break into the medals. Waterloo’s other potential medallist off the track is high -jumper Elaine Veenstra, whose current second place national ranking makes her a top prospect. UW will be counting heavily on its middle distance team to bring home some silverware. Inman and Chris Lane, who ran a season best of 3:57.8 this past weekend, should be in the thick of things at the 1,500 metre distance, and Mitro can be expected to perform his miracles over one kilometre, along with future star, Degazon. A host of Warriors contested the metric mile. After Lane’s breakthrough, UW was led by long distance men Rob Hardy (4:03.8) and Krucker’ (4:04.6),, who along with Tim Rose present a tough trio in their specialty, the 5000 metres. Elsewhere over the 1500 metre distance, Chris Roger (4: 14.6), Kevin Shoom (4.17.7), Brad Day (4:27.3) and Dale Lampham (4:36.0) rounded out UW’s finishers. On the women’s side, improving Kelly Galbraith just came shy of setting a new personal best and breaking the five minute barrier with her 5:OO.l fourth place finish, and Kilmeny Biemler posted a season best of 5: 12.6 for 7th. This weekend, Galbraith will move up in distance to the 3000 metres, while a strong run by Kelly Boulding will snag her a medal in the 1500 metre event. High hopes are also held for the 4 x 800 metre relay teams, with special notice to the men, who have now formed a tea’m (Lane, Degazon, lnman and Mitro) that will likely demolish the qualifying standard and will be trying to improve upon their bronze medal showing of last year. Entering the OUAA-OWIAA final, the Warriors and Athenas are nationally ranked, 8th and 12th, respectively.
one rush, Todd Coulter, Steve Linsemen and Jay Green skated confidently down the ice, Coulter and Linsemen fed the puck to Green who dropped the puck in for the goal. The Warriors didn’t add any more goals and had to settle for 3 to 1 loss. QuaterFinal Sudden Death Action - Waterloo at York - final score York 4, Waterloo 3. The first period against York was a blistering affair. The Warriors opened up the scoring at 2:08 of the first period. Keeping the Yeomen scoreless, the Warriors looked sharp and well prepared. The Yeomen fought back to tie the Warriors at 14:40. With the score at 2-2, both squads began pressing each other. Andrew Smith gave the Warriors the go ahead goal in the early minutes of the third but York managed to score soon after. Tension filled the arena, it seemed inevitable that the team who scored next would be the victors. With less than a minute left in regulation time and- with -_-- the ---faceoff in the Warrior end, the Yeomen managed to put one past Crouse.
Laurier 7, Warriors 4 / On Saturday evening the Warriors visited the Golden Hawks at the Barn, and played a tightchecking, hard-hitting game. Three goals down and entering the final 20 minutes of play, the Warriors offensive unit took off. Within a span of five minutes the Warriors tied the Hawks.4-4. Three quick goals by John Goodman, Scott Dick, and Jamie McKeen brought spark to the Waterloo bench. The Hawks managed to score three more goals late in the third, and thus secured their home‘victofy,
Crouse was pulled and an extra attacker added as the Warriors were pressing hard in the waning seconds of the game. Unfortunately, they were beaten by the clock. The buzzer sounded, much to the relief of the Yeoman bench, and an exciting season was brought to an abrupt halt.

by Cathy Somers Imprint staff : The hockey Warriors were in action last week as they finished off their regular season play with a game against the Brock Badgers and a series against the Laurier Hawks. The 7-2 win over Brock helped the Warriors capture the sixth playoff position in the OUAA Hockey League. Securing the last playoff position entitled the Warriors to face the nationally ranked York squad in Toronto, Tuesday, March 25th, in quarter final sudden death action. WARRIORS 7-2 WINNERS over Brock In the game against the Badgers the Warriors demonstrated a strong spirited performance as they cruised to a 7-2 victory. The Warriors plainly out-skated, out-hustled and out-performed the Badgers. The win was indeed a welcomed one because it re-kindled the team’s confidence. Scorers for the Warriors were Todd Coulter ( 1), Dave Cole (2), Neil Cameron (1) John Goodman (l), Jay Green (I), Chris White
