Mascot bash Strains WL UIUW relations by Christine Sinding Imprint staff ’ The mobbing of the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks mascot at a home game last Saturday afternoon has put UWs reputation on the. line. During the second half of the War. riors/Golden Hawks game, a group of students attacked the mascot, Bob Hughson, destroyed a $1,000 costume and roughed him up to the point where he sustained personal injury. Though charges have not yet been laid and may never be pressed, the . incident has raised questions about security, drinking at games, as well as the seemingly recent practice of , heckling the other team’s mascot. in addition, the attack has promp ted negotiations between UW and WLU administration over the cost of
the destroyed suit, the compensation of the .attacked student and the chance relations between UW and Laurier may deteriorate. “I think he’s (,Bob Hughson) okay, although he was shaken-up. The uniform didn’t fare so well. No charges
have been laid. but they may well be pending,” says Rich Newbrough, coach of the Golden Hawks. “We don’t want any reprisals. We ‘don’t. want a civil war on University Avenue.” According to UW Student Athletic
Director, Shayne Carmichael, who has acquired several versions of the attack from witnesses at the game, the incident resulted when a group of students attempted to steal the mascot suit head as a prank I Witnesses say the prank was in
Computer Centre setbacks to lower UW def i.cit .
by Sam Hiyate Imprint staff The projected deficit of s885,OOO in UWs 1986-87 operating budget will be “significantly reduced” thanks, in part, to construction delays at the new computer centre, says treasurer Jack Robb. Much of the large operating deficit was predicted in anticipation of the research building being ready this fall. However, since it is unlikely the building will be completed by the end of the current fiscal year (UWs fiscal year runs from May 1 to April 30), funds originally ,budgeted for its op eration will not be needed. This trims the expected deficit for the current fiscal year significantly, he said this week. With the financial situation better than expected, UW still had a surplus of about $132,000 at the end of the last fiscal year. Wiifrid Laurier Univer- . sity, in comparison, reported a surplus of $296,011 for the same period. Construction costs of the new centre are not part of the university’s operating funds, said Robb. This project is a capital expenditure removed from the annual budget. Currently, the university receives monthly pro. gress payments from the province to keep the project going. These payments are expected to total about $3 1.5 million. Budgeting strategy for the next fiscal year will be decided by mid-October, said Robb. As of May 1,1987, the university will not be able to coiiect the controversial computer fees. This results from a decision by the provincial government concerning the abuse some universities showed in charging extra fees. Methods of replacing the lost corn uter fee revenue, estimated at $ 1.8 million, have yet to be suggested. “in terms of cutting back (UWs budget), we’ve tightened our belts as far as we can,” said Robb. He said he hopes both ‘levels of government, federal and provincial, recognize and rectify the. financial constraints ail Ontario universities are working under.

Mouse-party sullies pu bWs image’of Waterloo fraternity by Cindy Long and Doug Thompson Imprint staff Members of Waterloo’s Delta Omega Chi fraternity have been trying hard to foster a good publicimage, but a weekend. party may have setback their efforts. On September 20, the fraternity hosted a party which, according to Euclid Avenue neighbours, involved loud cursing, drinking on the street,
urinating on bushes and intolerable noise which continued until 2:30 a.m. when police were called. Pam Boettger, 53 Euclid Ave., said that when she and her husband arrived home from a- wedding at 1 a.m., there were three or four people on the front lawn of the frat house who were shouting and using profane language. “One guy was peeing in the
Feds look to trim fat with revie,w of student services by Elliott Simcoe Imprint staff A review of all services offered by UWs Federation of Students is now underway to determine where a.little fat might be trimmed from the Fed operating budget. The review is expected give the federation an exact idea of its current financial situation and should help the executive find ways to alleviate the debt problem incurred from cost overruns of Federation Hall. Each student at the university is charged $7.50 a term to pay the mortgage of Fed Hail. Due to the cost overruns, hoever, there remains an outstanding debt of $13,000 which
come out of this years’
general operating budget, said Carol Goulette, vice-president of finance and operations.
“We don’t have the flexibility to start new services this year,” said Gouiette, “but 1can’t see us curtailing any service currently offered to students.” An example of Fed attempts to raise revenues can be seen in the Campus Shop where the prices of all clothing merchandise were raised one dollar. This added cost was due to the low mark-up on merchandise sold at the shop which was not cover. ing expenses. “But our prices are still much lower than in the Waterloo area,” says Goulette. All services offered to students will be reviewed including those which do not generate revenue for the Feds. An example of this is the safety van program, which costs approximately s 16,000 a year to run. As this is a needed service it will not be dropped, she said.

-bushes and yelling, said Mrs. Boettger. “I don’t like coming home to that.” A group of girls, who were drinking at the curbside, tried to take some of the flowers off the Boettgeis car, she said. “Their image in this neighbourhood has done a 180 degree turn.” said her husband Walter. Gordon Cummer of 60 Euclid Ave. confirmed the reports of the Boettgers, saying he was “very disappointed” with the fraternity. He had previously drafted a letter to students on the street extending a welcome from the community and a reminder of noise and parking bylaws. The fraternity members had promised there’ would be no trouble with loud parties as they were “athletic” types and continued

response to an earlier event where the-helmet of Waterloo’s mascot was taken and tossed about by Laurier students. in turn, a group of Waterloo students grabbed the mascot and, in the process of grabbing the head, were attacked by Laurier cheerleaders. At one point, Hughson was reported to be laughing. The situation changed however, when another group of spectators joined in and the prank turned into a brawl which actuaily harmed Hughson. Though the identities of the spectators are unknown, blame is being directed toward UW and this has some students concerned. “1 think this is a happening which is being blown out of proportion. it’s an isolated ‘incident and shouldn’t create a situation where one university is against the other,” says Carmichael. a Carmichael maintains the attack is the product of a series of incidents, including an exchange of graffiti-and the stolen helmet, prior to Saturdays game. He says he’s “glad the-Hawk is all right”, but does not believe UW students should be responsible for payment of the suit until those who were involved are proven to be Waterloo students. Furthermore, Carmichael says both sides played a role in the incident by initiating the pranks commonly referred to as sports humping’. .i “The people who caused the damage should pay but not UW as a whole. it is only presumed that Water. loo fans were involved so you can’t expect UW to accept the blame. Hopefully everyone will understand thit both sides were involved.” Despite this ,perspective, other UW students who witnessed the attack believe Waterloo should make an effort to prove the incident isn’t a reflectionpf the student body as a whole. Steve Hayman and Paul McKone, both members of the Warriors band, have put up posters across campus encouraging students to fork over some money to help replace the damaged suit. They have raised close to $100 so far. in addition, they -are hoping the gesture will restore what they per. ceive to be Waterloo’s loss of face from the incident. “Waterloo fans had a good reputation and students‘have

Meanwhile, students living at 62 Euclid Ave. said they heard some noise around 1 a.m., specifically mentioning horns honking. “They got pretty noisy.” said one resident. Fraternity executive member Mark McKay said the incident was not “overly major.” The party wasn’t advertised and the troublemakers were not fraternity members, he said, There was no noise from music, but
people from other parties that evening showed up at the frat house. “It’s a very unfortunate incident,” McKay said. “We don’t want people to get the wrong impression. We respect the needs and wants of the people in the community” he added. McKay said the uninvited visitors included “about 20 to 25 people” of whom only. two were women. One “tried to pick a fight with a blood brother of one of our fiat brothers”, an action McKay described as indicating the fellow was “a few bricks short in the brain”. “We decided to give t&m a chance.” said one resident, “but now they’re going to have to earn our re-

The neighbours said they are concerned this is onl-y the beginning as far as problems involving the fraternity house are concerned, and are promising .to take action should any further disturbances occur. McKay said the bad reputation of frats elsewhere led people to be very critical of the Delta Omega Chi fraternity at Waterloo. He welcomed what he called “unfair” criticism, however, .saying “it makes us stronger”. The rented frat house is occupied by five men and two women, of whom only three are frat members.

for increzised’ funds The Ontario Federation of Students is taking the provincial govern ment to task on promises of increased university funding as the group gears up for its October lobbying campaign, says chairman Matt Certosimo. The Liberals have been promising to deal with the underfunding problems at Ontario’s post-secondary in stitutions since they came to power, the OFS is merely asking them to follow through, he said. “An eight or nine per cent increase was promised, so far we’ve only seen about a four per cent (inflationary) increase.” The chronic shortages at most colleges and universities, which can be traced to a history of government cutbacks, will be the major issue of the federation’s annual lobbying campaign at Queen’s Park, said Certosimo. Throughout October, the OFS is planning activities to increase public awareness of the issue. The month-long effort, which will include meetings with cabinet ministers and opposition critics and leaders, is scheduled to end with four days of intensive lobbying - all de signed to influence the govemment’s funding announcement expected in November. , “l’ve heard rumours that there’s going to be a good funding announcement in November . . . we have to put pressure on the govemment to make (the right) decision,” said Certosimo. “lt’s important that students bel
come more aware and motivated to do something about the underfunding situation,” he said. “lf the majority of OFS’ 200,000 members were to speak out”, the affect of the campaign would be stronger. The OFS plans to bring to the government specific examples of how underfunding has hurt post-secondary education, rather than just asking for more money, he said. Also on the agenda is a request for improvements to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and a review of the incidental fees policy, particularly differential fees charged to foreign students. While the OFS is not satisfied with the government’s efforts to date, the province has made the underfunding issue a top priority, says a spokesman for the ministry of the colleges and universities. Bob Richardson, executive assistant to minister Greg Sorbara, said Wednesday the government has already indicated a commitment to dealing with this problem and that trend is likely to be continued in the funding announcement from .Treasurer Bob Nixon’s office. “We’ve done a substantial amount so far, like the $50 million excellence fund, $60 million for the community colleges . . . and $84 million for faculty renewal.” Richardson said he would like to see the lobbying efforts of groups like the OFS continue as a means of drawing the public’s attention to the problem.

Researchers TORONTO (CUP) - Two researchers may have found a possible treatment for osteoporosis, a disease which causes bone tissue to degenerate and is usually found in dder women. Cherk Tam of the University of Toronto and Wing sung of the National Research Council have manufactured achemical duplicate of the parathyroid hormone (PTH), which stops degeneration by osteoporosis and may prevent the disease from building-up in weak bones. There are two types of cells that work together in bone tissue - osteoclasts, which break down tissue, and osteoblasts, which create new bone. In osteoporosis, osteoclasts absorb bone mass faster than osteoblasts can build it up. The bones lose mass, and become thin and brittle.
Tam said the mechanics of the reaction of bone mass to PlH is not fully understood, and added that PIT-I may not provide a cure to osteoporosis. “It’s not really curative by curing the physiological problem,” he said. However, “this is probably the the millions of dollars, Tam said the
hormone “has to be as affordable in the future as common antibiotics.” Tam and Sung hope PTH will be commercially available within two years, though a company hasjnot yet been selected to test and market the drug.

Our Mistake In the story about the Delta Omega Chi fraternity (Imprint Sept. 19) Women’s Commissioner Angela Evans was mistakenly quoted as saying fraternities are the most blatant form of sexual discrimination. She actually said fraternities are a form of sexual discrimination. In the story about Ring Road park-

Image crisis Core of row over franternity
by Doug Thompson Imprint staff Fraternities. Oh yeah, here we are again! On 55 Euclid Avenue in the peaceful burg of Waterloo sits a rented house. It looks like most any other rented house, except for the fact of the huge Greek letters, Delta, Omega and Chi adorning the second floor balcony. Across the street and down a jog sits another (presumably) rented house, and on the front of this serene abode one finds more Greek letters, this time pi, pi, Pi - (right, all lower case). And as you may have read in the Recordfirst, and the Imprint second, the first of these houses was the scene of an event which caused neighbours to call police in the early hours of the morning. The one across the road is just a parody, a spoof. Okay, all harmless enough in and of itself. But reality is not confined to the essence of things in isolation. The Delta Omega Chi chaps held an open-house earlier that day for their neighbours. “See what nice people we are!” was the point. And I assure you, they are nice people -at least the ones I’ve met. But there is something about fraternities which many of people seem to think isn’t nice at all. What is it? “We have “done no wrong!” the fraternity brothers tell me. And,1 ,beIieve they are essentially correct there. Indeed the trouble-makers at the party were not, apparently, fraternity members, or even invited guests. Just party-crashers. It is argued-that some people have an “Animal House” image of fraternities, and that it is this image, not the fraternity itself, which is the problem. This “image” is even cited as the reason why 20 or 25 boisterous party-crashers arrived at 55 Euclid -Avenue on Saturday night. So we have a conflict here between “image” and “substance”! There is an old adage, oft repeated in this context, that justice must not only be done, it muse be seen to be done. In politics, in advertising, in marketing, in business, and even in more intimate and personal interactions with friends and relatives we all know that people react to what they perceive to be going on, whether or not their’perceptions are correct. So a government, even if very fair and just, is not seen to be just, it will not survive an election.

is not seen to be good, will not sell. Likewise, a bad product that is seen to be good will sell anyway. Okay; so, where does that leave us? Can we blame the fraternity for a negative public image? Can we blame them for the fact that they are seen to be Animal Housellike? In a court of law, probably not. But in the court of public opinion and the realpolitik of student life in K-W, we can blame them very much. Those three Greek letters on the house advertise “We Are Students”. And when stories appear in the Record about neighbours calling the cops on a loud party at a “student” house, all student tenants in
K-W get tarred with a very black brush. Now the men who organize and operate the fraternity, including a former federation vice-president, are not politically ignorant, or unaware of these matters. Knowing, as they do, that all eyes are on them, and knowing, as they do, that they have an incredibly bad public,image to live down, and knowing as they do, that media will inevitably portray them as somehow “archetypical” students meaning that all students will share whatever image the frat “brothers” generate - knowing that why don’t they give up and get out before any more damage is done to the public image of UW students?
“Smut” merely the invention of those With prudish predelictions by Steve Kannon I Imprint staff The issues of pornography, censorship and public morality have been favourite topics of discussion, both inside and outside the media, for many years. Everyone, including yours truly, has some opinion on the subject. I’ll use the feature story included in this week’s Imprint as a springboard to some editorial comment. (Although the feature is blatantly slanted, a.bit more emphasis is needed.) Simply put, neither the government nor any other interest group has the right to dictate policy on matters of human sexuality. Yet this is exactly what the Tories are seeking to do under measures proposed by former justice minister John Crosbie. Worse yet, there Bre actually people who support stricter controls on what others can read in magazines, see at the movies or even do in their own bedrooms. All the fuss and bother stems from some misguided senee of human sexuality as dirty or wrong. Some poor souls, convinced any form of sex is evil, seek to deprive others of this most human of activities. And, because sex is wrong, so too is any depiction of sex, be it written or visual, Unable to prevent people from having sex, these moral prudes and some factions within the government seek to stifle all public reference to anything the least bit connected to sex. c,.‘.. While there are some forms of so-called pornography which need to be controlled, such as those involving children, most arguments against porno. graphy are unwarranted. Whether or not a book, magazine, movie or other work of art is termed pornographic is largely a subjective matter, based on some undefined image of public morality. In today’s society there is no such thing as a set concept of morality; these guidelines for judgment are unacceptable. In most cases, government regulations are consistent across the country; stealing a car in St. John’s is as much a crime as stealing the same vehicle in Vancouver. Yet legislation governing that which is deemed pornography varies not only from province to province, but from city to city and even from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. Such loose guidelines would hardly be acceptable for any other section of the criminal code. A review of existing legislation would seem in order, although this issue is hardly a top priority. Moreover, it is an issue the government, or anyone else for the matter, should not even have its nose in. To remove itself from ‘this situation, the federal government, along with each of the provinces, should revoke all legislation dealing with sexual relations, except, of course, that dealing with child porn or other abuses. Any form of sexual activity between consenting adults should be beyond public or judicial review. What two consenting adults-choose to do in the privacy of their own bedroom, or what 17 consenting adults choose to do in the privacy of their own
jacuzzi, is nobody’s business but their own. (The emphasis, of course, is on the consenting adult part - abused children or men and women who have been raped hardly fall into this category. In cases of bestiality, the adult(s) is obviously consenting; the sheep is another story.) With the simple realization that there’s nothing wrong with most kinds of sex, it obviously follows that there’s nothing wrong with ,most forms of literature, film or art depicting sexual activity. Just as everyone should have the option of choosing his or her sexual partner(s) and/or appliances, so too should he/she have the option of choosing a form of entertainment. Nobody who is opposed to sexual entertainment is forced to look at it, just as anybody who wishes to abstain from sexual relations is free to do so. Sexual literature and films are an entertainment option, not a tool of the devil destined to corrupt us all as the likes of Jerry Falwell (truly a pimple on the ass of intelligence) would have us believe. Fears a more open society will lead to deviance and sexual perversity still abound. “Loosen up and we’ll soon have sex in the streets and homosexuals on every corner,” says the uptight minority. “God only knows what will happen then.” Maybe they have a point, if the streets were filled with,“deviants”, there would, be no place for their beloved neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members to march.

It wasn’t very funny! To the editor, With reference to David Bain’s letter entitled “Keep frosh spirit: kill faculty rivalry” (Imprint, Sept. 12), I agree that school spirit should be promoted while faculty rivalry should not be. But I have never taken any sort’of jokes between faculties seriously and I never suspected anyone else did either. Similarly, at interuniversity sports events one of the techniques of uplifting your own university is by putting the other down. But this, too, I thought was all in fun. And it is. Chants like “that’s alright, that’s okay, you’re going to work for us someday” or the teasing about Western’s horse one day becoming glue or dog food really gets the crowd hyper and in turn lifts the spirit of the players. Being a member of the Warriors Band, I like the competition between the interuniversity bands too, but who is to judge &ho is best and, besides, who really cares? The bands, cheerleaders and mascots are there just for fun and to pep things ud. At Saturday’s Shinerama bowl between Waterloo and Laurier an incident occ.urred that I am not very proud of. A bunch of UW students decided to “sporthump” Laurier’s golden hawk masccjt. It probably would have been funny if a few just chased the chicken around a bit. I am sure a gentle tackle would have been harmless too, but the mascot got pounced upon.
Lacking basic humanity ’
To the editor: The problem with not wearing a Sony Walkman 24 hours a day is that you often hear things ybu would prefer not to hear. Things like the comments of someone sitting a a table next to you in the Modern Language’s cafeteria. Now, one morning very recently I unplugged myself and sat defenseless, sipping my coffee, in the the cafeteria. I had singed my tongue approximately three times when the woman sitting ‘at the next table displayed such an array of compassion that I still get shivers thinking about it. The fellow the woman was talking to had just informed her that a certain homosexual had committed suicide, to which this beautiful person repli’ed, “good”. I immediately had to fight the urge to pour scalding coffee down the woman’s back. I must admit that I truly wanted to see her writhing around in utter agony on the cafeteria #loor. However, I thought this action might cause a scene and that, overall, it would be better for me to really think’about this woman and her problem. This person, I thought to myself, is in bad shape. She no doubt refers to Blacks as niggers and Orientals as chinks. In short, she is emotionally inadequate. She is lacking the basic ingredients that make up a well adjusted human being. Correction, she is lacking the basic ingredients that make up a human being., I, in fact, feel sorry for her and also for anyone who has similar problems, I hope that someday there will be a cure for people like her, but until then alkl can do is recharge 1 my batteries and put my plugs in. Kathy Bell ’
His costume got damaged and so did the mascot himself. I am not sure of the extent of his injuries, but, nevertheless, the prank was taken a bit too far. There was no humour in watching a bunch of guys tackle and deface the chicken while the cheerleaders frantically tried clearing everyone away. The fact the mascot did get hurt only makes matters worse. We cannot blame the whole thing on Laurier just because they may have started it by stealing the Warrior’s hat. The fact is UW students retaliated in a disrespectful manner causing bodily harm. Although learning by experience is an excellent way to
learn, I think this episode was unnecessary to teach students how far not to carry things. I thought dne of the requirements for being accepted to university was that you had to, have the ability to think, so let’s not limit this ability to academics. Let’s stick to the fun, harmless interuniversity rivalry that promotes school spirit and enjoyment.

Offend to the core (2) . To the editor, The ignorance and self-righteous-ness that permeated J.T. Macintosh’s letter “Offend to the Core” (Imprint, Sept. 19) did, in fact, do just that. Although it seems somewhat inconceivable that one could misconstrue “we are all immigrants” in the most myopic sense (contrary to what you would like to believe J.T. Macintosh, neither the white man nor Christianity are native to this land), such a comment is consistent with the entire tone of the (etter. “the equally reIn implying source-rich Third World countries” are scavengers, Macintosh
demonstrates quite clearly a profound ignorance. Such a mentality can only derive from one who refuses to see the world as it truly is, but instead observes the very pleasant environment of his/her own surrounding and immediately extrapolates it onto the entire planet. As such, Macintosh assumes everyone has had the good fortune to live in a resource-rich country similar to the one that the accident of birth has given him/her. That such an attitude is held by people is sad; that the attitude is held ,by a university student is utterly repulsive. Paul Battista
Offend~to the core (3) To the editor: I! sounds like J.T. Macintosh, taking a stand against “the parasitic invasion” of immigrants in Imprint, Sept. 19), needs a history lesson. The “glory” of our forefathers is sullied by terrible crimes, including killing the people already here and stealing their land. Recent immigrants to this country understand and appre-
ciate its virtues better than J.T. Macintosh, and many other “real” Canadians whose ancestors emigrated generations ago. Attitudes like Macintosh’s, to use his/her phrase, “offend to the core”. How ban s/he be so Christian and be so ignorant and nasty? Are brown shirts coming back into style? K. Rubunyi + 2nd Yr. Architecture
Smile ! m.It can’t hurt To the editor: . , I was .depressed . __ last Friday upon reading Sue Young’s open letter to the editor (Imprint Sept. 19). Suddenly, I recollected my Iearnings from Psych 218 ( “Age Dying and Death” ) and realized her aim was not of a morbid nature, but instead, very touching and realistic. I hope she reached a lot of hearts. She certainly cap- . tured mine. I was deeply moved by her statement5s and the feeling in her article which was expressively portrayed by “take the time to laugh and take the time to cry. We, you, and I may not be there tomorrow. . . an extra warm smile . . . Say it. Do it. You may make someone glad you did.” I did a lot of thinking after reading the article, reflecting upon a close friend of mine who fought and recovered (for now) from a rare form of cancer. How comforted am I to know that he is only a phone call away. He has learned from his struggles so early in life (17-l 9 years), respecting and cherishing each day he is given. How often we push aside the glory of each day - the work will wait while we watch the rainbows but the rainbows will not wait while wedo the work. A young’ girl (19) dies in a freak car crash because another driver ignores the rules of the road. My friend was three weeks away from receiving tne glory of her Grade 13 graduation ceremony. It
is so unbelievable that I can’t, years later, get the ‘that long distance feeli’ng’ or share our lives together. At university, we tend to get wrapped up in our own lives what our marks are, what courses we take, etc. When was the last . time you smiled at someone you didn’t know on campus (instead of avoiding eye-contact)?, or gave a ‘warm fuzzy’ (a hug or compliment) ‘to your friend? We only have one life to live and each day counts so look around and see all that you have - not the car in your driveway but the glory of your friends who rescue you from the school blues, your health and your energy or zest for life. I have so much in my life that I am grateful for and each day, I try to count my blessings but there are just too many. I have a wonderful myriad of friends all across campus (and the world, for that matter) who provide a,major support system and help me in my self -development, my health is good and my zest for life keeps getting stronger. I hope, for those who have reached this part df the article, you can reflect on your life and all you have; moreover, see how differently it would be if you lacked any one aspect of friend/relative you have now. Try it. . . and the next time you see a friend or anyone on campus tiho needs an emotional boos, Smile . . . it might make their day. . M.J. Smith
lmmigtation To the editor: I was overwhelmed with emotion when I read J.T. Macintosh’s letter in last week’s Imprint. If I may, I would like to present some of my own thoughts on the subject. J.T. Macintosh wr.ites: “The torefathers of most Canadians did not immigrate

as and often in larger troops with wife and children, always on the move, so that their existence was completely like that of the nomads.But as soon as their increasing number and better implements permitted them to clear the wild soil and make a stand against the natives, more and more settlements sprang up in the land.”
. And the similarities in our beliefs only begin here! J.T. Macintosh writes: “We should not be “punished” because we put reason and integrity ahead of emotion in order to create a successful nation, while the inhabitants of equally resource-rich Third World countries, rather than doing likewise, take the easy route of mounting parasitic invasion attempts upon our borders. ” On this, I wrote much: I, . . . the Jew . . .[was] only and always a parasite in the body of other peoples, that he sometimes left his previous . living space has nothing to do with,his own purpose, but re~ sults from the fact that from time to time he was thrown out by the host nations he had misused.

His extension to evernew countries occurs only in the moment‘in which certain conditions for his existence ( are there present . . . . . . He is and- remains the

Furthermore, “It is not true, as some people think, that Japan adds European technology to its culture; no European science and technology are trimmed with Japanese characteristics . . . Only on the basis of these achievements can the Orient follow human progress.” “North America, whose population consists in by far the largest part of Germanic elements who mixed but little with the lower coloured peoples, shows a different humanity and culture from Central and South America, where the predominantly Latin immigrants mixed with the aborigines on a large scale. By this one example, we can clearly and distinctly recognize the effect of racial mixture. The Germanic inhabitant of the American continent, who has remained racially pure and unmixed, rose to be the master of the continent; he will remain the master as long as he does not fall a victim to defilement of the blood.”
Indeed the statements of J.T. Maclntosh that “Canadians are now well aware that many of these newcomers bring with them attitudes, including various prejudices against both whites and Christianity, which offend to the very core.” echo my own words: “And this nqtionality he guards as never before. While he seems to overflow with ‘enlightenment’, ‘progress’, ‘freedom’, ‘humanity’, etc., he himself practices the

Career plant%ng and job__searching
trained to\ h&p peers firid
Students by JoAnn Hut&son Imprint staff S.V.A. is an acronym quickly gaining recognition on the UW campus. SV.A:stands for Student Vocational Advisor, a student trained in all areas of career planning and job search in order to assist other students. S.V.A’s spend three hours a week advising and counselling their peers on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. They are also expected to organize and perform Outreach Programs which take the form of workshops and are catered to the specific needs or interests of students within each faculty. Topics for Outreach Programs in the past have included “Marketing Your Liberal Arts Degree” and “Pre-Optometry Students: Information and Alternatives.” S.V.A.‘s may be called upon to assist in Career Services or in the Career Information Centre. Hosting employers during on-campus interviews is also one of the S.V.A.‘s responsibilities. “The S.V.A. program is an. offshoot of Career Services which developed in response to the de-
partment’s need to increase its profile and make it known, these services exist to meet the needs of all UW. students, both Co-op and regular,” explained Marlene Bryan, placement advisor for Career Services located in Needles Hall (room 1001). Colleen Bawn, co-ordinator of the program, described it as being “geared for regular students to close the gap in knowledge about careers which exists between Co-op and regular students.” Although there are as many full-time regular students as there are Co-op students on campus; regular students often perceive themselves as “second class” citizens, because so much attention is drawn to the Co-op programs. Since many people think the department is solely for Co-op students, regular students often feel they are not entitled to discuss their career aspirations with Career Services staff or make use of their services. This belief is a misconception; while Career Services comes under Co-ordination and Placement, rt has the,mandate of serving all UW students. Bryan sees the S.V.A. aprogram as “being a bridge between Career Services and the students. Seven extra minds and fourteen extra hands which are tuned into students changing needs and concerns may help us reach students we may not have been able to reach. The program has been in operation since January 1986 and the feedback from both faculty members and students .has been very positive,” states Bryan. Bawn, a former S.V.A., village don, and fourth-year urban planning student, is program co-ordinator. Her position requires a minimum of 15 hours per week and gives her the chance to “practice administrative and managerial skills.” The co-ordinator’s role is multi-faceted. Bawn explains she must “foster teamwork among S.V.A.‘s, organize the initial training program, be sensitive to ’ their ongoing needs, and address these needs at bi-weekly meetings.” She is involved in organizing and conducting the screening interviews of new S.V.A.‘s, and is required to advise and evaluate S.V.A.3 and their Outreach Programs. She is responsible for administrative ‘duties, for publicity to promote the program and to recruit new S.V.A.‘s, and serves as a liaison to Career Services. The co-ordinator “may also be called upon to assist at the Career Services Office or substitute for an S.V.A. who is unable to perform an Outreach Program or fulfill office hours.” The six current S.V.A.‘s were recruited last March through an extensive selection process involving completion of an application form and submittal of a cover letter, a detailed resume, and one letter of
reference. Candidates also had to submit a written answer to a question focusing on career planning and/or job search before being interviewed. Career Services staff and former S.V.A.‘s screened applicants in a structured interview. The following criteria were used to select the successful candidates: strong written and oral communication skills, and the confidence, interest, and enthusiasm necessary for performing S.V.A. responsibilities. since the program is designed to help the S.V.A.‘s learn and polish their own career-related skills, candidates who were preferred showed a desire to work in areas such as personnel, public relations, recruiting, social work; staff training and development, and teaching. Of the 22 people who applied, six successful applicants were chosen to represent each faculty (except engineering) and ’ asked to sign. a contract before being issued the final letter of acceptance. The present S.V.A.‘s will hold the position for the next eight months. New S.V.A.3 will be recruited in March 1987.T
S.V.A.‘s training consisted of a three-day orientation held during the first week of September. The students participated in sessions on resume critiquing, counselling, and
roles as Career Services’
representatives; therefore, they must be familiar with the broad range of services offered. To increase‘familiarity with Career Services and the Career Information Centre, the S.V.A.‘s were given a tour of these areas and worked three hours in each. The training and evaluation of S.V.A.‘s is ongoing. The group meets on a bi-weekly basis to discuss progress and/or problems, evaluate each other, or receive additional in-service training. People participating in Outreach Programs also evaluate S.V.A.‘s on the quality and effectiveness of the session. Finally, Career Services staff will formally evaluate each S.V.A. at the end of the term, or sooner if required. A written documentation on each participant’s performance will be given to each participant. Bawn, who was an S.V.A. last winter, articulated several pros and cons to the position. She feels S.V.A.‘s “learn valuable personal skills which will be beneficial in other aspects of life.” She states, “S.V.A.‘s learn to work in a supportive group and independently they must‘ learn to exercise creativity, flexibility, and be in control of various situations. Organization, planning, advertising, and‘ public speaking are skills which students can improve. Valuable counselling and listening skills can also be developed.” Participants “upgrade their own career search skills such as resume writing, interview and job search techniques.” She added, “meeting people such as other S.V.A.‘s, deans, career and counselling services staff, and fellow students is a fringe benefit of the S.V.A. program.” Bawn points out, “the only con is the time and commitment involved.” In summary, Bawn comments, “the program gives people- a chance to get involved and contribute to the campus while gaining valuable experience.” Bawn offered a few interesting anecdotes from her ‘past experiences as an S.V.A. She found that it was “interesting to see how different people react to the same problem.” A situation in the geology department during the last winter term . . il-. lustrated this point. She explained, “the bottom fell out of the geology job market, especially with oil companies, leaving geology graduates in an interesting state of affairs. One student experienced mass anxiety and needed to be calmed and reassured while another student came to obtain information about any pos-
sible government grants to help in the creation of a job. The third student was “maintaining her enthusi‘asm and ‘motivation and continuing to contact employers and look in related fields. She was doing every-
sides the things that we do.” Finally, she says she hopes “to attract more applicants for the program during recruitment and increase the number of S.V.A.‘s to eight.” Having many people applying for S.V.A. positions is positive because “com-
that the program is a worthwhile and valuable thing to be involved in.” Bryan stresses student program
“the program is a - it is largely run
by students for students. This fact thing possible and just needed greatly contributes to its success.” petition never hurts, and it shows praise and someone to tell her she was doing a good job.” From these experiences, Bawn observes “there Please feel free to contact one of the following S.V.A.‘s: are many different facets to a problem and people experiencing the Arts Glen Reimer HH 151B same problem may handle or not Eileen Fritz handle it in totally different ways.” Science Stephen Peever ESC 251 Bawn has several goals for the future of the program.

Recent events, which reached a peak at the WaterlooILaurier football game last Saturday, have cast serious doubts on the nature of athletic fan support at UW. Waterloo was once known for the quality and int,elligence of its sports fans. Lately, support has increasingly taken the form of drunken rowdyism. While this represents a minority of Waterloo fans, these ignorant few have succeeded in damaging a reputa-

World Vegetarian Day set to go OctOber 1 by Christine Sinding Imprint staff
In celebration of World Vegetarian Day on October 1, the newly organized UW Vegetarian Club is encouraging students to taste a different lifestyle. Proclaimed as a means to support the peace effort while promoting health, the day coincidentally falls one day prior to Ghandi’s birthday and three days prior to the birthday of St. Francis. Though active on campus over the past seven years, the Vegetarian Club has turned over a new leaf by formally organizing this term. World Vegetarian Day falls within the first week of operation and club members say this is an excellent op-
portunity to introduce some facts about vegetarianism to students. “October I is so important; it’s an opportunity for people to see the impact of their eating habits on world problems and health,” says club member Theodore Tsaousidis. “We are suggesting that students try a vegetarian diet for the theme which is a contribution to health and peace of nations.” To’ celebrate the internationally recognized day, UW s Vegetarian Club will be showing a half-hour film, narrated by William Shatner, six times betweem 1 and 6 p.m. in Campus Centre room 135. Information about the club will be available between films as well as recipes, food, coffee and tea.
Also, most food spots on campus will be selling various vegetarian dishes. While Vegetarian Day is designed to recognize the impact meat eating has on world starvation, it is also a chance to dispel some myths about, vegetarianism. A vegetarian is someone who does not eat meat, including fish and poultry. According to Tsaousidis, people who refrain from eating meat live longer lives, suffer from less disease, such as heart disease and cancer, and are contributing to the world hunger cause by not supporting animal production. A press release sponsored by the and Waterloo Vegetarian \,Toronto Association states animal production consumes four-fifths of the world’s agricultural land, land which could be used to feed starving nations. ?magine yourself sitting down to a 16 oz. steak and all around you are 45 to 50 starving people. For the feed costs of your steak, each of their bowls could be filled with a full cup of cooked cereal grains,” says Tsaousidis. As World Vegetarian Dayfalls within the first weekof UWs club officially organizing itself, members are encouraging students to learn about facts and benefits of the club. Furthermore, they want students to know the impact they will be making even if only one day of meat eating is forfeited. “The facts are there but people have to make their own decisions; we are not out to convert people because conversion has no substance. Our motto is education for health and peace and we are hoping that people on this campus will keep the theme alive,” says Tsaousidis.

Povelrty, illiteracy and famine are the Struggle in Nicaragua Mike O’Driscbll Imprint Staff
The bloody conflicts in Latin America are the most visible problems and the ones which draw the greatest international attention. Yet the people there must also deal with widespread poverty, illiteracy, the abuse of human rights and the denial of self-determination. To observe and act on these problems from thousands/of miles away is no easy task. Tools for Peace, a Coalition For Aid to Nicaragua, has found what may be one way to make a difference. Last year the organization, then four years old, sent aship ful of tools, equipment and supplies worth more than $1.5 million to the revolution-torn country. By distributing the goods directly, and working with a private organization known as the Sandino Foundation, Tools for Peace managed to ensure its donations went to those who needed it most. Tools for Peace is a non-profit organization composed of some 60 coalitions across the country. Thousands of volunteers along with . churches, unions, and community groups h&e contributed both their time and effort in collecting materials to build, teach and aid medically. On September 30, two members tif the organization, Wendy Mortimer and Brent Sleet, will present a slide and tape show of their recent trip to Nicaragua The meeting is sponsored by the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group and will be held in Physics Room 208. Both speakers helped to unload last year’s Tools for Peace shipment, their- experiences promise to be informative. In addition, those that are interested should note the University of Guelph will be holding a conference on “Conflict and Crisis in Latin America” from September 29 to October 3. A series of films and lectures will
be sponsored by the.Ont.ario Public Interest t Research Group’s Latin American Sdlidarity Group and the Guelph International Resource C&-

“Sex is bad”
‘New prnography by Suzette Chan 0 Reprinted from the Edmonton Bullet Canadian University Press .* George Orwell was two years off. In Nineteen Eighty-four, equality meant conformity, so the .state formed the Anti-Sex League to enforce state-approved sexual activity (or non-activity). In i986, sexuality means deviancy, so the state is using legislation to stamp out immorality. The difference is that you can close Orwell’s book, go to bed and forget about it, but you can’t wish away the tide of 1986 conservatism and go to bed without thinking of the ramifications of ’ what you do there. June and July saw major new attacks launched on individual freedoms in both Canada and the U.S. A U.S. Supreme Court decision upheld the right of state legislatures to ban sodomy (i.e. oral and anal sex), undoubtedly a first step in building the case for quarantining AIDS victims. Then a U.S. Justice Department ruling allowed businesses to fire emsployees who have AIDS or are suspected to be in a high-risk group, in order to “protect” other workers. In Canada,, meanwhile, a prostitute was being hunted down by police for fear she would spread the disease. Her own health was not an issue. On June 10, John Crosbie (then Canada’s justice minister) introduced two bills in Parliament, one dealing primarily with the sexual abuse of children (although Crosbie managed to sneak in a clause having to do with the sale of sexual aids and with buggery between adults), the other with pornography. Both bills reflect a spreading conservative backlash against the liberalism of the ’60s and ’70s. The Canadian Right blames the breakup of the nuclear family, rampant sexual disease and a general weakening of moral values on these liberal attitudes. AIDS is an obvious scapegoat for the new conservatism on sexual matters, but taking away AIDS will not solve the problems defined by the Right. The election of the Mulroney government two years ago paved the way for people’s fears of herpes, incest, child abuse, and rape to be projected in public legislation.
Legislation that presumes to define what the public can look at is not an unlikely forerunner to censorship of ideas.
The Crosbie proposals could become the telescreens that monitor Canadians’ sexual behaviour and social attitudes, if the Tories get their way. But so far, bills C-113 and C-114 have prompted a general outcry from all sides ‘of the political spectrum in Canada. As Christine Bearchell writes in an editorial in the August issue of the Body Politic, “the anti-porn proposals have been almost universally assailed as anti-sex.” Co-worker at the Body Politic Andrew Lesk agrees: “The bills tell us that what goes on between two, loving and caring individuals - be they heterosexual or homosexual - is sick and somehow unnatural.” The two bills, which, among other things, recommend a maximum lo-year jail sentence for “touching, directly or indirectly, with a part of the body or an object, any part of the body of a person under the age of 14,” and define “degrading pornography” as pornography (the depiction of sexual activity, according to Crosbie) which shows defecation, urination, ejaculation, or expectoration by one person onto another, lactation, menstruation, penetration of a bodily orifice with an object, or any act in which one person attempts to degrade him or herself or another, are scheduled for committee, hearings later this year, most likely in the fall. Lesk is afraid much of the bill will become law. “We’re resting on the hope’ that it doesn’t,” he says, “but, let’s face it, there’s a conservative majority at the moment,.” Lesk sees the creation of the committee to look at the bills in the fall as a “token gesture”, aimed at assuring the average Canadian “that we live in a * democracy.”
“The committee is already stacked,” says Lesk, pointing to the appointment of 1 Jim Jepson, MP for London East, to the five-person committee. Jepson is anti-sex, period,” says Lesk. “For him, it’s not even a matter of homophobia - he just thinks sex in itself, no matter who it’s between, is ‘dirty’.” If Crosbie’s bills, or parts of them, do become law, says Lesk, “there will be continuing fights on our behalf to have them repealed.” ’ The fight has already begun. Edmonton lawyer Michael Ritter formed the Citizen’s Committee for Freedom to sexual Choice with regard to Sexual Morality after reading Crosbie’s bills. A report circulated by the committee calls the proposals “a puritanical approach to sexual morality by the government, and an attempt to enforce conservative, restrictive, and right-wing values on the Canadian population through the force of criminal legislation.” Even though the Tories’ major election platform was to minimize government intervention,” says Ritter, “they have been out of power so long they’re overpowered by the power of the law. They’ve thought they could right every wrong through legislation.” Ritter contends the bills ignore the common law-and betray public expectations. ‘Canada has long/had a tradition of liberal governments that protect rights,” he explains. “We are used to a paternal kind of government; we trust the government to do the right thing. We never expect the government to be extreme.” The Mulroney government, Ritter suggests, has proven it is not- only parental but also condescending. The proposals were tabled without ‘prior briefs, secretively without consultation. Crosbie ignored the proposals of the Fraser commission on pornography and prostitution, a Trudeau government creation that travelled across Canada hearing briefs, from citizens. A close reading of the bills belies Crosbie’s claim that they affect only visual matter that is pornographic. One section restricts the sale of sexual aids to persons under the age of 18 - even though the age of consent to marry is 16. In another,
ltiw under fire the depiction of menstruation under “degrading pornography.”
To be exempt from prose.cution after goods are seized, an accused person must prove the “degrading pornography” has a “genuine educational or scientific purpose” or “is a work of artistic merit..” The accuser does not have to prove the work is “degrading” or is “pornography.” The law takes care of that. And, says Ritter, this cheats Canadians out of the right to due process of the law: you are guilty until you prove you are innocent.
but it passed in Alberta. Morrow says the violent scenes in Mixed Blood have a point to make, and wonders whose standard of “artistic merit” will determine the validity of certain films if Crosbie’s bills become law. In live theatre, everyone from the’ owner of. a theatre to the stagehands would be liable to prosecution if involved in a performance deemed pornographic. Under section 163 of Bill C-114, “we would step back 20 years,” says Jane Buss, executive director of the Playwrights Union of Canada.
“The bills tell us that what goes on between two loving and caring individuals . be they heterosexual or homosexugl - is sick and somehow unnatural.” Moreover, the fact judges will be precluded from considering community standards, as is traditional in common law, “would backtrack on hundreds of years of legal traditions.” - Susan Morrow, director of the Princess Theatre, a repertory cinema in Edmonton, expects the new laws, if passed, to make it easy for police to lay charges against the theatre - “Pretty Baby would be banned.outright” and is concerned with ramifications on a larger scale. “It would make it very difficult to portray any gay’ relationships on film,” she predicts, noting that Crosbie’s bills closely follow the American legislation on sodomy. Morrow fears legislation that presumes to define what the public can look at is not an unlikely forerunner to censorship of ideas. “We just went though a contrsversy when we showed the Godard film Hail Mary, which had a religious theme. There was some nudity in it, so it was easy to make a connection (between the nudity and what protestors called the blasphemy of the film). But where do you draw the line?.Will they soon say I shouldn’t show films that deal with philosophical issues while other’ theatres can show films of solid violence? The Princess imposes a kind of “self- ’ censorship” with the interests of the community in mind, Morrow says. “When I first started here, the precedent was for showing Russ Meyer films.” But Morrow discontinued the screenings of T & A movies. “I don’t show sexist films, films like Rambo, and I turned down Caligula. But I wouldn’t have that element. of choice if the law were to be enacted.” Morrow says the Hail Mary controversy and Crosbie’s proposals are not enough to steer her away from showing films people want to see, films she believes are important to the community. She will be interested to see what happens in October when the Princess screens Mixed Blood, a bloody satire involving street kids.The Ontario censor board (famous for taking clippers to TheTin Drum) has already banned it, essentially because it has children it in,
Buss recalls the controversy over the performance of the musical Hair in Toronto, when the morality squad showed up at the theatre every other night because of scenes simulating group sex in-a tent. At the time, however, community standards applied. Crosbie’s law would have theatres closed until they prove a performance is not “pornographic.” . “One is not presumed innocent,” says Buss. “What we’re talking about is censorship.” “These people would have arrested God,” comments Mike Ritter. “God made the fruit available to Adam and Eve. He would have been arrested as the distributor, owner and managerof a property that promoted ‘actual or simulated acts of vaginal, anal or oral intercourse, masturbation or group sex’!” Ritter, Buss and Morrow say the right of the individual to choose is being compromised by the wish of the government to arbitrate. Ritter suggests the proposed laws would make Canada more repressive than many religions. “Catholics are not excommunicated if they do not follow edicts from the Pope. Christianity is based on choice.” Ritter proposes that restrictions and definitions of pornography take into account freedom of choice. “Anything can be degrading if it is not done on a consensual basis,” says Ritter, but he concedes there is a grey area when it comes to the matter of consent. Many people still had the opinion that someone who is raped somehow “deserves it” - either she was a “slut” or he was a “fag”. ‘fThis is obviously not a black and white issue, in spite of Parliament trying to make it black and white. There is always a grey area, and that’s for the courts to decide. When does something become mutual consent? When is it a questionable consent? Ritter says churches, schools and regional social services should be educating children and adults about the kind o-f sexism and exploitation that precipitates pornography. “It is not a matter for the law. Morality is a matter of conscience, and that’is a matter for education.”
13 Imprint, monton, Alta. T5P 4Kl) is circulating a form letter asking the government to scrap Crosbie’s bills and to adopt the recommendations his committee formulated in a ‘paper called “Criticisms and Recommendations with Regard to Bills C-114 and C-113.” Ritter had collected 2,000 letters just days after it was released and is sure thousands of Edmontonians have sent the letter themselves or written one of their own. Others are articulating their stand against, the proposed legislation. The. Periodical Writers’ Association of Canada has passed a resolution asking that the proposed legislation be withdrawn and . redrafted, and the Playwrights’ Union of Canada has slated a discussion of the bills on its agenda. Latitude 53, a gallery run . solely by artists which presented an exhibit about censorship this spring, has stated its opposition to any form of censorship, although it has not released a
Essentially, the government sees sex as evil; Ritter believes. Why else would it link graphic depiction of sexual activity with violence, child abuse and degradation? “No evidence exists to support the theory explicit sexual activity is harmful,” he points out. “There have been studies that show violence is probably bad, but that sex itself is not harmful.” Even feminists who advocate the censorship of pornography are disturbed by the two bills. Susan G. Cole, a contributor to the Toronto-based feminist review ’ Broadside, told the Body Politic in August the bills revealed “anti-women sentiments.” She hinted feminists were being used by the Canadian Right in their crusade against sex. As an editorial in the _ July issue of Broadside points out, “. . . the interests of the two groups (the Right and pro-censorship feminists) are not the same.” The bills may be anti-sex, but they’re hardly anti-sexist. In fact, says Varda Burstyn, co-founder of Feminists Against Censorship, “they ignore feminist concerns altogether.” . Brenda H-umber says explicit depictions of sexual activity can be helpful. Humber was in Edmonton last month to open the seventh in a chain of Love Shops across Nestern Canada. Humber became greatly worried about the status of her business when she read about the proposals in the newspapers. Formerly a psychiatric social worker, she opened her first Love Shop with her husband in Calgary in 1973. “People want to be able to see the sex act,” Humber says. “They don’t want bodies covered up. “The Love Shop carried so-called pornographic or erotic periodicals such as Playgirl, Blueboy, and Playboy as, well as sex manuals, but Humber says she has had to stop carrying a number of those publications, “mainly because the laws are so unclear right now.” Humber, along with Ritter and others, hopes the government will scuttle Crosbie’s proposals in favour of the recommendations of the Fraser Report. “Fraser basically said everything should. be allowed except abusive activity, child porn and bestiality. Everything else fits with community standards.” Humber disputes Crosbie’s claims the majority of Canadians are in favour of his proposals. “The ‘silent majority’ had a write-in campaign of 700 letters. We have seven stores across western Canada and
we count every single customer - 3.5 million customers since the first day. That’s half the population of the Prairies. And we know where they’re at sexually.” Humber says she is amazed at “how normal everybody is and how they don’t ’ realize it. People come in and say ‘I’ve got a problem’ but often they just didn’t have the right information.” Almost all of the stock at the Love Shop is imported, mostly from Scandinavia, whose laws dealing with sexual material are open minded. “You can be right-wing, and be for or against pornography,” Ritter says. Britain, which has a right-wing government, regulates porn, but does not prohibit it. Meanwhile, individuals and groups are mounting an attack on Crosbie’s anti-sex bills. Ritter’s Committee for Freedom of Choice (P.O. Box 9065, Station E, Ed-

statement specifically about Crosbie’s proposals. \ “Now is -the time to let your MP, and the editors and readers of you local newspaper, know what you think of the government’s proposals,‘: writes Bearchill in the Body politic. “Anti-censorship and pro-sex forces need to join together locally, regionally, and nationally in anticipation of the Justice Committee hearings . . . and they need to analyze and criticize all the repressive aspects of these proposed laws, not just the obvious absurdi- . ties.” Ritter hopes the new Justice Minister, Ray Hnatyshyn, heeds the opposition and either scraps the bills or uses them as an election platform in a couple of years so Canadians can more directly comment on the proposals and the authoritarian and secretive style of Mulroney’s boys in blue pinstripes. In the meantime, here’s to 1984 in 1986.

by Tim Perlich Imprint staff Though still early in the evening, it was apparent the Chicago Pete and the Detroiters show set for September 19 at the Legion Hall had the potential to be the worst concert the Southern Ontario Blues Association had yet undertaken. Along the way to the Legion, we met Darryl on King Street pacing nervously back and forth from the curb, looking squint-eyed over the tops of Camaros and Trans-Ams. “Any sign yet?” I “Nope.” “Wait a minute now, how about that one . . . it’s white isn’t it?” “Nah, that’s just a plumbing van. Look for Dqtroit license plates.” Showtime was quickly approaching and neither Chicago Pete Gor the Detroiters were anywhere in sight: Word cirLulated that Pete and the band/ had crossed through Windsor customs at 3 p.m. that afternoon. If they drove carefully, they should have arrived by 6 at the latest. It was now 9:30.
Concert promoter Glen Smith joined the gathering next, bringing with ilim the latest news that Chicago Pete’s van broke dopn outside of Dorchester (probably miles from the nearest bar) and was being towed to Kitchener. The Chicago Pete story was hard to swallow but at least moie convincing than the recent homicidal-fan car kidnapping nightmare concocted by Mary Wells and her manager, but not the most effective of the night. Tired of waiting f& the white van, we decided to check out U.1.C. at Level 21. Further down King Street we met Charles who informed us there was a sign on the door saying that the U.I.C. concert was cancelled because the lead singer had pneumonia and was in a hospital (nowhere close to a bar).
Someone’s suggestion of going to Fed Hall being routinely dismissed with a theatrical display of teethgnashing derision, we headed back in the direction of the Legion with a brief detour into the Athenian. By the time we made it back to the Lz!gion, Chicago Pete and the Detroiters were already jukin’ their way into the hearts of the well-lubricated crowd. Behind the swinging bass was the reluctant frontman Chicago Pete sporting flashy white loafers and snazzy red socks and a mint green tuxedo. In fact, everyone in the group, except for the keyboardist wearing sky blue, had a mint green tuxedo.
Doug ‘and the Slugs: still dishing out tripe by Paul Done Imprint staff Despite the obvious enthusiasm that went into their performances at Fed Hall September 18, Doug and The Slugs and opening act Bolero Lava could do nothing to hide their mediocrity and lack of inspiration. Each band played with polish and energy but each was so mundane and repetitive that rigor mortis threatened to set in at any moment. Bolero Lava, an all-girl group from Vancouver, elicited a great response from the crowd, which isn’t surprising since they churn out the same kind of undistinguished tripe the crowd had come to hear from Doug and The Slugs. Dressed up in their requisite “Noo Wave” clothes, Bolero Lava had, ironically, more completely assumed the roles of
rock stars than the headliners. In their press kit, Bolero Lava were described as “funky” and “fun”. Unfortunately there was no real funk and they would have been fun only if you were capable of leaving your brain in the fridge while you were at the show. Dismal, dull and destined for stardom.
Doug and The Slugs and Bolero Lava both suffer from the same unwillingness to challenge their auby Steve
jerky little runs on his decomposing Fender electric piano. Finally, Chicago Pete himself stood center stage, thumping his bass and reaching for the odd falsetto in between asking the audience “do you feel awright?” Who were these guys who came all the from Detroit in the’ir ill-fitting, nearly-matched tuxedos. How could they possibly make such cheap and shabby instruments sound so right and true? Looking around, no one seemed to notice or care how they were dressed, what
brand of instiuments they used or even the fact that the man behind that beat piano wearing the sadly out-of-joint blue tuxedo was Joe Hunter, better known as Ivy Jo Hunter, composer/arranger/producer for Motown during their mid’60s peak. There seemed to be some immediate understanding between those on stage and those out on the floor that bypassed the labels and clothing. Simply put, these were hoothie-coochie men and everyone knew they were.
Solo album a pleasant surprise l
by Rob Savickis Imprint staff After seeing Doug and the Slugs-
put on a great show at Fed Hall September 18, I was instinctively drawn to Doug Bennett’s new solo album Animato. What followed was a careful mix of pleasant surprises and disappointment. Certain songs seemed to jump right out of the album and into my ears. Others remained sit-
Though they’ didn’t take themselves as seriously as Bolero Lava, Doug and The Slugs were just as boring. Led by Doug Bennett, that roly-poly ball o’fun, the band ploughed the same musical territory. which has brought it worldwide fame and reknown. Their goodtime mix of rock and soul, combined with a mischievous sense of humour was certainly what the crowd wanted, but it bored *me to tears. I’m sure they played old favorites and songs from the new’ album, however they were virtually indistinguishable (what a surprise!). Doug and The Slugs have now reached a point *here they can do quite well performing in Canada. ,They will have trouble reaching a larger worldwide market since they are neither ’ interesting, talented nor photogenic enough to merit the big promotion money given to other equally boring acts such as Genesis and Dire Straits.
- There was a tiny guitarist, yringing knife-edged leads out of his Electra sunburst Les Paul copy. Next t’o him the ancient trumpet player swayed in step as he probably had done for the past 60 years. Rounding out the horn section was Lamont Purdee wrestling his ‘saxophone across the stage as if it was a live boa, doing his best to steal the show. Further back was the drummer slapping down on his flimsy drum kit wobbling with every kick. Off to the far left was the keyboardist pleasantly smiling while ploinking out

It’s Got to be Monday, which opens the album, and which I remembered from Thursday night, is in the same league as the multitude of other “I hate Monday” Songs which have come out in the past several years. It’s a great-song but, sorry Doug, top billing in the Monday song category still remains with Bob Geldof for I Don’t Like Mondays.
My personal favourite on the album is Secrets, a-spunky tune with an appealing beat. The chorus especially seems to do something for my ears. I don’t know why, it just (does. As for side-two, here we see a consistent mix of good songs as opposed to the inconsistent jumble of great and merely mediocre songs that characterizes side one. The liveliest song here is I’m Excited although .every song has some merit.

Basically, this is a good album. It doesn’t compare to Doug and the Slugs’ previous great release, Propaganda, but then few albums do. It does prove Doug on his own can more or less be equated with Doug and his Slugs.

The recording quality, Digital, is excellent, but the crowding of instruments on top of one another makes it difficult tb listen to each player; therefore, the contrapuntal nature of jazz is sacrificed. These young players ventured to Japan for a week in August to perform two shows at a jazz festival. The rhythm section trio also performed a special show, in tribute of Bud Powell. Ralph Bowen found it surprising-their record bounded into the Japanese top-ten to compete with artists such as Grace Jones, and that it sold as many units in Japan as in the U.S. The thrill of national and international travel and performance is an exciting venture for a boy from Acton, Ontario. Ralph spent two and a half years with Manteca and his own quartet in Toronto. Moving to the University of Indiana to study jazz with Dave Baker under a non-degree applied music program and now studying at Rutgers in New Jersey, he now confidently t$elieves he “can make a living in jazz”, especially in the thriving environment of New York. If his good fortune of associating with such fine players as OTB continues, his jazz future should-indeed swing.

by Charles Mak Imprint staff Admittedly, I don’t know much about this male/female duo and I’m sure that none of you mainstreamers have heard of them either.Ohtima meets Dania are an obscurity that base themselves in Alberta and I’m told Ohama himself is a potato farmer who keeps a 16track recording studio in his basement. Don’t take my word for it though. The music of Love only lasts a while is based on a very simple synthesized sound backed up by an electronic rhythm composer, an obvious fact even though the credits don’t mention what instruments were used. At best Ohama meets Dania sound like- a simplified and gnrefined version of the band Moev. What carries this album through is the vocals of Dania who transcends the inadequacies of the instrumentation and makes the sotind tighter and more textured. Although her range is limited, she is able to exude a style and sound that
by Chris Wodskoti Imprint Staff It’s really no wonder Americans seem to see Canadians as a lunatic bunch of beer-guzzling rednecks, what with compilations like It Came From Canada Volume 2 around. Like its highly popular predecessor, a demented, some might say “sick”, sense of humour abounds in the 15 bands parading their country-garage-sludge-thrash mutations through this great tour of the unseemly underbelly of Canadian music as represented by Deja Voodoo’s Og Records. The record starts on’an ominous note with Ray Condo & His Hard Rock Goners’ wigged-out, Mystery Truinish rockabilly on High Voltage to lead into a side of roots-oriented perversity. Self-touted “urban primitive swing”sters Condition continue the twanginess with an unusual country-influenced Ghost Train. Toronto is put on the Og map first by The Dundrells whose special Deja Voodoo remix of Mr. Nasty must be grungier than their wildest nightmares and then by ex-Forgotten Rebel mastermind Chris Houston who drawls, “Aww, heck/Oh what the hell/I think all girls are swell,” over sidekick Jack deKeyzer’s blues-wailing guitar on Girls Are Swell from the fab Hate-filled Man. Side-One finishes off with a couple of psychotic Montrealers. E.J. Brule’s mouth supplies the drums,
is eerily orientalized and infectious. . The slight shades of Oriental influence must surely come from Ohama. This becomes most apparent on Take me dancing where she takes on a haunting weave. On every song, Dania sings with a sinewy indifference almost to the point of iciness but her idiosyncratic . style is somehow compelling and absorbing. Underneath all the unpretentious and reserved sound lies a sultriness that beckons for attention. Ohama takes over from Dania on two tracks and unfortunately he can’t sing and his style is that of a dreary drudge which is all too pronounced on My Time. He,manages to salvage his reputation on Talking about, which incidentally is one of the better instrument+ songs. Having Dania do all the vocals would have made this album a good concept effort. A fuller and more textured sound would have removed the instrumental banality that flaws the album. Despite the shortcomings Love onty lasts awhile will grow on you, slowly but surely, depending on whether you a_re willing or unwilling to appreciate the alternative sound. Dania’s vocals are certainly worth listening to.
fuzz guitar, and trumpet and lines like “I take a strange consolation/That the women in my life/Have had it rotten since they left me.” (Nahhh, these guys ain’t sexist.) And, of course, there are the Grand Poobahs of sludgeabilly who plumb new depths of basement-infidelity production on Three Men, One Coffin from their forthcoming album,. Swamp Of Love. What’s Your Problem? from Tyj rants of Teen Trash by Montreal’s The Gruesomes is that close to being a garage classic. Only thin production and vocals that don’t quite sneer enough keep this harmonicadriven testament of teen paranoia in the realm of the merely great. Similarly riffin’ good tracks by The Zamboni Drivers (who could only come from Canada with a name like that) and Ten Commandments show Canadian garages are still full of kids bugging their neighbours all night with fuzzed-up guitars. Finally, honours for the two funniest songs1i.e. the ones with the highest degree of bad taste) are reserved for The Electric Banana’s tips on how to p?ek up girls in Mikey Is A Ladies Man and Fredericton’s Guilt Parade with Ode To An Asshole which features a vocalist who makes The Pogues’ Shane McGowan sound like a graduate of The Royal conservatory of Music. For some reason, he can’t understand why his wife left him just .because he beats her up all the time. After all, he don’t mean nuthin’ by it and he lets her drink his beer. Obviously, It Came From Can: ada Volume 2 is not for the overly sensitive who can’t take a joke no-r for those with a Strange Advance fetish. Crazy, cool, and Canadian.

by John Zacariah Imprint staff I Commenting on the latest Cannon Group release would be like commenting on the latest rootsrock release, redundant and mostly pointless. Avenging Force is a string of carnage-ridden cliches sure to appease the gore-starved masses. But, there’s a twist. The hunky he-man battles to the death with dyed-inthe-wool Reaganites, all of whom are in firm support of aid to the contras. That’s quite a departure (not to mention a commercial gamble) for the Israeli wonder twins, whose heroes are often right-wing animals. On the other hand, politics is rarely a strong suit for the mostly male, mostly dense audiences of trashy Firstenberg-directed pictures. Then there’s Ruthless People, re-released for those on vacation this summer. Danny DeVito singlehandedly rescues this picture from the nefarious clutches of the dull Judge Reinhold and the weasely Helen Slater. DeVito decides to off his wife (Bette Midler) but he’s foiled when she gets kidnapped. Its a blessing in disguise, though, because all he has to do is refuse to pay the ransom, and she dies. Unfortunately for him, the kidnapers are a gutless young couple (Reinhold and Slater) who can’t bring themselves to shoot their victim and, in fact,, ,eventually befriend her. The mess of misunderstandings which follow is humourous, but forgettable. And, despite DeVito’s acidic and hilarious performance, so is Ruthless People.

Focusing on the way in which greed manifests itself in malefemale relationships, Economic Sex, the first novella by Ali-Janna White, gets lost in overwrought structure.

Avenging Force- . a dud!
by Tim Perlich Imprint staff Besides the frightening Mr. Nasty which appeared on the Og It Came From Canada Volume 2 (in a mysteriously remixed version), the latest release from Toronto’s two-car-garage punks is the Nothing On T.V. 7”. Althougth Pete .Hudson’s production quality is far more gritty and lively on the new single, they still have yet to equal some of the compositions on their debut cassette like X-ray Eyes. The musicianship is equal to their past efforts and unfortunately so are the vocals. It’s obvious the very nature of this genre is unprofessionalism but the fact singer Gary Welsh cannot remain in key for more than a few bars is tremendously ‘annoying. The idea of recording Welsh’s voice with a RCA ribbon microphone through a furnace duct seemed to work well on Mr. Nasty and should probably be explored further in future recording sessions. However, live shows with this arrangement may prove difficult.
by Tim Perlich ’ Imprint staff Back in the days when the New York Dolls and the Ramones were the only bands that mattered, d-i-y groups sprouted and multiplied like weeds. Greg Prevost (Chesterfield Kings) had the Distorted Levels and Jeff ‘Monoman’ Conolly (Lyres), never to be out-done by Greg, had DMZ. Before Conolly even heard of DMZ, the group had already been together for awhile playing mostly covers. Solely on the basis of his unique ability to write original songs,
Conolly took over the band shortly after joining and eventually got rid of all the original members. Supposedly the first song Conolly ever wrote with the ‘new’ DMZ (featuring ex-Lyres and current A-Bones bassist Mike Lewis) was First Time Is The Best Time now reissued by the cooler than cool Telstar Records. Recorded in March and April 1976, the song bears a strong Stooges/Groovies influence but the piano use points to the shape of things to come with the Lyres. The B-side’s Teenage Head, an obligatory homage to the Flamin’ Groovies is adequate but nothing to yell and scream about. Congratulations are in order for Todd Abramson for once again mending the holes in rock’s rich tapestry (whew!)
King of Hearts a good UW film series opener by Sam Hiyq,@ Imprint staff Had Joseph Heller (Catch-22) and Federico Fellini (8 l/2, City of Women, and most recently Fred and Ginger) devised a film criticizing the madness of war, the result would have been a film like King of
Hearts. King of Hearts, a 1967 FrancoItalian co-production written by Pierre Lhomme, directed by Phillip De Broca,, and featuring Alan Bates and * Genevieve Bujold, kicked off the International Films. 1986/87 series screening this year at the Humanities Theatre. . King of Hearts is a satiric, surreal exploration of self against a backdrop of war. It is the kind of film which asks questions about the human condition and answers them before the viewer has a chance to ponder other possible answers. These answers will provoke a laugh, a grin, or a bit of a shock.’ Even today, almost twenty 20 after its
creation, it offers a relevant comment: there is only one place of refuge during world war - ourselves. In 1918, near the end of World War One, an English soldier is sent to defuse a bomb set to go off in a small town in Northern France. Charles (Alan Bates) arrives at a village deserted by all except the inmates of the local insane asylum. Having escaped and assumed functions such as barber, general, and whore, the crazies provide an adequate illusion of town life for Charles, who tries to locate the bomb with their aid. Charles is crowned king by the villagers, and after he meets and falls for the naive prostitute Coquelicot (Genevieve Bujold), he indulges in their escapism, knowing that at any time the bomb might go off. At this point, the film becomes Felliniiesque metaphor, describing

King ofiHearts continued from page 17 1 the human condition by way of idiosyncrasy. Circus animals abound, brightly costumed zanies improvise, one character plays chess with a chimpanzee (and loses), and characters voice revelations like“ there’s a wall between us and the world.” The film proposes that (as one character says) “to love the world (during a state of war), you have to get away from it”.
Bates and Bujold, the audience kept enthralled. The introspection of Charles in his relationship with the supposedly irrational townsfolk during the course of the film convinces us that absolute introspection does not lead to insanity. Indeed, King of Hearts shows us that in order to retain our identities in as insane a context as world war, exploring our inner workings is the only battle we need win. And the most difficult battles ever fought anywhere are the ones between our self and our selves.

Athlete of the Week Andy Kruc’ker Cross Country
Athlete of the Week Sue Owen Field Hockey
Andy Krucker was named Warrior Athlete of the Week. Andy is a fourth-year Mechanical Engineering student and a native of Burlington. Krucker placedsecond at the Guelph Invitational Cross Country Meet this past weekend. An,dy led the Warriors Cross Country Team to a first place finish against a high caliber men’s field which included American universities. The course-was wet and muddy but this was more of an asset to Krucker who thrives under less than ideal circumstances. Andy is an athlete who tends to rise to’ the occasion at championship meets. ’ This was Andy’s second consecutive successful race as he won the McMaster Invitational Cross Country Meet the week* before. Krucker”showed his determination last winter after being injured in the fall. He then went on to win the gold medal at the OUAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. He was also rankedseventh at the CIAU Indoor Track Championships. ’ Andy’s leadership and dedication to the Warrior’s is as much an asset to the team as his sterling performances. He will be an important component in the Warriors bid for an OUAA medal.
Sue Owen is a. second-year Kinesiology student from Hamilton, .where she attended Hillfield-Strathallan College. Despite playing injured for the past seven days, she has turned in some outstanding goalkeeping performances. According to coach Judy McCrae, “the Athena’s make-up this season will have them playing a lot of defense and thus Sue’s rule becomes very important.” At the University of Waterloo Invitational last weekend Sue recorded two shutouts, one against Carleton and the other against McMaster. These were her second and third shutouts in a week as she previously did not allow a goal in a game with Adrian College at a, tournament in Michigan. She also stopped three penalty strokes, which normally result in automatic goals, over the past six games. Sue has been unable to practice due to a leg injury, yet she has proven she has great concentration when it comes to the game itself. Sue was also a member of the Athena Swim Team in her first. year. “If Sue can continue to provide us with good goalkeeping, I think we can accomplish our team goals, said McCrae.
Zugelder ran strongly to place , sixth behind winner Paula Schnurr of McMaster. The next Watwoman was Kilmeny Beimler in 24th, closely followed at the finish by rookie Maggie Stewart. Rookies Louise Chayer, 33rd, Wendy Huismans, 39th, and Jodi Dorfman in 45th rounde’d out the scoring. Teamwise, Waterloo was fifth behind winning team, U. of T. Head coach Andy Heal said he was very pleased with the women’s team. Claiming the team “is shaping up to be what we hoped it to be”, Heal predieted the team might surprise even themselves. Zugelder, Heal said, “ran one of the better races of her career at Waterloo”, which bodes well for the future, considering the early stage of the season. The rookies performed very well, faced with the pressure on them to perform since they constituted all but two members of the team. The mixture of promising rookies combined with cunning veterans is well capable, as Heal said, of surprising themselves. By the time the men’s race got underway, the course was beginning to show definite *quagmire tendencies. The lead pack slowly fell apart as runners either dropped back or dropped out. Krucker was the last to go as Steve Boyd of Queen’s went on to win what Boyd said was his best race since the 1983 OUAA championships, when he was second.
Kevin Shields, on work term in Ottawa, came west for the weekend and started his season well, finishing ninth. Waterloo’s remaining scorers were: Tom Sawyer, following up on his Beer Mile victory the previous weekend, led a trio of Warriors across the line; Sawyer was 25th, and Tim Rose and Chris Rogers were 26th and 27th, respectively. They were followed by Kevin Shoom in 33rd, Dwight Caldwell in 52nd and Pete “Marathon” Mulvihill in 73rd. The team was easily the top University at the meet. Men’s coach Don Mills, was not surprised by the team’s placing, considering the “calibre of the work put in by team members Kevin Shields and Andy Krucker. The team looks good for the OUAA championships.” Coach Mills was exceptionally pleased with the weather, as it
left some runners paddle the finish
trying to dogstraight. .
Today Waterloo travels to Western for an overnight meet. The promised feast tonight along with the sight of coach Mills in a (borrowed) tie, will undoubtedly be eclipsed by the intensity of tomorrow’s race on the CIAU course. Four American universities, including Penn State, will compete. Virtually all the Ontario universities will be represented as well neither the juggernaut University of Ottawa nor Guelph’s A-Team were at Guelph but both will be at McMaster. Nonetheless, Waterloo will be the team to watch - in the latest in cross. country fashions presented to the team by Reebok. Things are getting exciting and’ it’s still five weeks until the OUAA championships at R.M.C.

drop 2 in weekend
It was a lo&g weekend for the soccer Warriors. Although. they played well in both their weekend games they could not come up with any points. On September 20 the Warriors were in Guelph to take on the Gryphons. The Warriors played on even terms with the Gryphons for the full 90 minutes but managed to lose by a 3-0 score. The Warriors gave up all three goals on defensive errors. Twice the Warriors failed to mark opposing forwards leading to two Guelph goals. Waterloo did score once on a brilliant solo effort by the unpredictable Steve New but a horrible call by the referee nul-
fullback Bruce Hollanby at Sunday’s game.
lified it. The next day the Warriors hosted the Brock Badgers at Columbia Fields. The Warriors lost this game 1-O as a Warrior fullback deflected the ball into his dwn net. The Warriors played well but were again unable to score. Severa1 times good chances were thwarted by bad bounces caused by the poor turf conditions. Good performances last weekend were put in by forward Frank Avila, midfielders Upen Kawale and Glenn Clarkson and fullbacks Psycho Hollamby and John Gimpel. Tim Walker Goalkeeper
played reasonably well in both games but still left room for improvement. The 1986 Warrior Soccer team players are: Goalkeepers - Tim, Walker, Dave Brubacher; Fullbacks - Amyn Samji, Bruce Hollamby, John Gimpel, Phil Worton, Dale Graf, Scott Robinson; Midfielders - Steve New, Andrew Wall, Upen Kawale, Glenn Clarkson, Billy Mueller; Forwards Mike Houston, Ralph Barker, Gary Cooper, Rob Hitchcock, Steve Cooper, Frank Avila. The Warriors play Wednesday at Laurier; Saturday at home against Mac and Sunday at Ryerson.
