Provincial grants to increase 7.3% in-‘87 by Steve Kannon Imprint staff I Ontario’s universities received a pleasant surprise November 3 in the form of a government funding initiative expected to help alleviate a decade of underfunding. A 7.3 per cent increase in basic \ operating grants in the 198788 fiscal year will allow universities to use funds for more than merely keeping ’ pace with inflation, said Minister of Colleges and Universities Greg Sorbara. The increase means the post-secondary education system will have some $97 million more than expected next year. Total government fund- ing, including inflationary increases and previously committed monies, will increase by $148.7 million, bringing MC& budget to $1.44 billion. The current 1986-87 fiscal budget calls for expenditures of $1.31 billion. The announcement has drawn praise from the university community, although. each institution won’t know for a few weeks exactly how much of an increase to expect. UW president Doug Wright said the move is in the right dire-ction, but the government still has a way to go before the underfunding problem is alleviated. And, while the figures sound enticing, until UW has co-me actual dollar figures, nothing radical will be done to current budget fore. casts. “Having had to make budget cuts for the past several years, we are pleasantly surprised at the prospect of an increase that will not require a further cutback in 1987-88,” said Wright. “What has been announced is enough to stop the bleeding . . . though not enough to restore us to health.” The most significant fact, he said, i‘s that the increases are in the basic operating grants, not in one-time grants, which has been the case in the past. Tom Brzustowski, vice-president - academic, said the announce. ment is the best news UW has had from the provincial government in

15 years. The money squeeze has become so severe that a deep concern has arisen over the university’s ability to achieve adequate performance in both teaching and research, he said. UW students have acknowledged that the quality of their education has suffered. The university has lost a number of senior faculty who gone elsewhere, mostly to the United States, to obtain adequate support for their research. “(This) announcementseems to indicate a genuine concern to try to improve conditions in Ontario universities, including Waterloo, and this is most welcome,” said Brzustowski. “The government seems to have recognized the desperate situation in which we find ourselves.” Student groups also had few complaints as Sorbara promised tuition fees would increase by only an inflationary four percent, while OSAP funds would increase by a “minimum of four per cent”. Tim Stutt, communications director for the Ontario Federation of Students, said the organization is pleased with the initiative and must give the government “credit where credit is due”. The OFS, however, is concerned that the “momentum” started with Monday’s announcement will continue, with the government maintaining a commitment to solving the problems in the post-secondary education system, he said. The announcement is particularly timely for UW students. The increased funding may cause the administration to drop a proposal which would see students asked to pay a voluntary fee of $60 per term to help reduce the university’s projected deficit of $1.8 million. If the student referendum idea failed, theadministration might have been forced to cut computer services by $1.8 million or to cut back funds to all services by 1.5 per cent. The university cropped 2.5 per cent from its 1986-87 budget due to lack of government funds.
An altogether surprising funding announcement by the provincial go. vemment has left UWs administration in doubt as to how to proceed in solving some pressing under-funding problems. On October 30 Waterloo’s Senate ’ Finance Committee outlined its options, paying special attention to the $1.8 million void created by the province’s cancellation of the computer fee. During last weeks finance meeting the Senate committee made the following proposals prior to this weeks government funding announcement: a) cut 1.5 per cent from the general operating budget, across the board. b) cut $1.8 million in central computer services. c) invite the students to approve an offsetting fee.
The last proposal of inviting the students to approve an offsetting fee would be arrived at by a campus. wide referendum. All of the committees options, however, are in doubt as a result of the funding announcement. UW president Doug Wright said this week the announcement obviously affects the finance committee proposal, but he refused to dismiss the concept of a referendum. Until the university knows for sure how much money it will receive it would be “stupid” to press ahead with the idea, but the option has to remain, said Wright. “We’re not sure it [the increase] is going to meet the needs . . . we don’t know how much is coming to UW,” said Wright. “Let’s just wait and see.” On Monday the government announced a 7.3 per cent increase in funding to universities. The University of Waterloo’s administration is in a
by’ Janice Nicholls Imprint Staff Student complaints, first heard five years ago, about UW economics professor John Hotson overemphasizing the problems of world hunger and presenting the Ending Hunger Briefing in his economics courses have resurfaced. Professor KM. Bennett, chairman of the economics department, said the matter was first brought to his attention five years ago when a student complained about a question on world hunger on an exam. Professor Hotson agreed to stop teaching the material in his class, but maintained that he was still dedicated to ending hunger, said Bennett. Students taking professor Hotson’s macroeconomics course in the 1986 summer term report as much as half of the course was spent dealing with the problem of world hunger. In addition, professor Hotson handed out cards asking for a personal commitment to ending hunger to be signed by the students on a voluntary basis and submitted to him, said two students enrolled in the course last summer. The card View of the Brampton Bill Building under construction. Let’s states “By personal declaration, The Hunger Project is mine completely.

query over exactly how much the funding increase translates into dollars and cents for this particular institution. The amount allocated to each institution varies through-out the province. The Ontario Council of University Affairs is in charge of developing a method for the distribution of the new funds. Their report will be available to the Ontario Government by December 15. By mid-January the ministry of colleges and universities expects to have the funds available to the university community. It is because of the uncertainty involved as to the amount that Waterloo is to receive that is forcing the university’s administration to keep the Senate Finance Committees options wide open. What all this means to Waterloo’s students is that they might still be asked to volunteer an extra fee to offset a projected. deficit for the 1987188 academic year.

NEWS-. ’* ~ . More- gov’t money -for industiial research ’
by Sam Hiyate Imprint Staff The Ontario government has revised the University Research Incentive Fund (URIF) so it will match each dollar invested by industry or business in an approved research project at an Ontario university. This replaces the old formula, where Ontario gave $1 for every $2 othetise invested. Colleges and Universities Minister Gregory Sorbara announced last month the government will provide up to $25 million over the next three years under the URIF fund.
The deal may sound promising, but according to UWs Dean of Research Ernie Holmes, URIF, “although well-meaning, is ill-timed (unless base funding is increased) and ill-conceived. It presents the usual challenge for us to devise innovative ways of making the best use of another government R&D program.” Why is it ill-timed? Holmes said “the real problem of the university is a base-budget one. The high student/faculty ratio and lack of official support staff means that there aren’t faculty researchers waiting around for the extra work that industrial con-
57 -hour relay run to start this weekend The 1,lth annual charity run, organized on campus by St. Jerome’s and Notre Dame, comes to a close this weekend. The event was started 11 years ago by two students who wanted to thank the community for letting students become involved in the community activities. As a result, each year the students choose a local charity to support. Funds are raised through various on-campus activities that students can participate in, as well as the local campaign drive involving a can drive and a raffle draw. This year’s goal is to raise $7,000 for St. Monica House, a centre for young pregnant girls. St. Monica House offers counselling services and programs to help the girls deal with their situation and to answer any questions they may have. The girls are offered constant support, a place to stay, supplies of needed personal items and friendship. The money raised by the run will help St. Monica House maintain and improve existing programs. The charity run opening ceremonies start at 3:30 today and runners will be participating in a 51-hour relay around Ring Road.
tracts entail. UW already does a higher percentage of contract work in terms of its total R&D budget than other Canadian and most U.S universities - including M.I.T. (We spend 12 percent of our budget on industrial contracts while M.1.T spends 10 percent.)” Why is it ill-conceived? Holmes said “the program addresses only one side of the equation - an incentive for industry to make use of university facilities and talent - but given the difficulties facing universities, where is the incentive for the university?’ Holmes compared the linking of government to an existing relationship between a university and a company as “a menage a trois” where government becomes an “intruder.” “it is unnecessary and acts as a deterrent for both the companies and university researchers,” said Holmes. “It adds an element of uncertainty and delay. The review by a provincial committee is not altogether welcomed by industry either.” Holmes proposed a better plan. “If the government wishes to promote more research interaction ~4th industry, it should put the onus on the university researcher to initiate contracts. It should also provide, sufficient incentive: for example; an annual bonus based on the amount of contract research done for industry that year. The bonus should be given as a free research grant to the researchers concerned. Not only would this be a stimulus, it would enable the researchers to keep a research team together with the necessary support staff and thus enable the researcher to use his/her time
more effectively.” Holmes said- this sort of scheme was proposed in the U.K. and was recommended in the “Wright Task Force on R&D report to the federal government.” “I gather there is good news out today (citing the 7.3 per cent increase in university financing for the next fiscal year) which may relieve the base budget situation,” said Holmes. “This will help in terms of URlFs success. Despite my feeling this approach is not altogether the most appropriate or necessarily par-
titularly beneficial to the university, I have seen some success with URlF in terms of the lap-top portable computer project of Dan Cowan et al. In this project, the industry and the teaching requirements of the university were both well served.” “At UW we already devote a significant amount to support the industry/university interaction via our co-op programs. And incidentally, our co-op program has never been~ _recognized financially by govemment, which gives other educational institutions money to go co-op.”

The divestment policies and student boycotts organized by some Canadian universities in response to apartheid may eventually be adopted at the University of Waterloo. Earlier this year, a report on the findings and recommendations made bjl an anti-apartheid committee prompted the student union of the University of Ottawa to boycott all products of Rothmans and Carling O’Keefe, two Canadian companies controlled by South African interests. In response to this move, and at the request of former UW Federation of -Students president Sonny Flanagan, a similar anti-apartheid committee has been formed here at the University of Waterloo. The primary purpose of this committee is to research apartheid, and what, if anything, the university cati do to oppose it. The findings will then be presented to the Federation and -the student population. Actions which could or shduld be taken are being considered, as well as their
group considers boycott , at uvI/
possible ramifications. McGill was the first university in the country to act against apartheid, with a proposed complete divestment of its holdings in South Africa, amounting to a total withdrawal of about $40 million. A number of universities have followed suit with similar, or less extreme measures. These include partial or voluntajl boycotts, studies, reports, awareness days, petitions and fund raising activities. Apart from lectures, news articles and information booths in the Campus Centre, little has been done until -YTOWat UW to make the student body aware of apartheid and its implications. This problem is what the committee seeks to alleviate. At present, various options are being weighed as to what can be done in familiarizing tie students with the committee as well as with the problems of South Africa’s policy of racial segregation. Under consideration are a number of proposals such as student contacts with South African universities, letter writing campaigns, as well as an awareness program. A more controversial issue also
under discussion is the possibility of divestment and boycotting. No decision has as yet been finalized, as arguments both for and against these issues are matters upon which the Federation, as representatives of the students, must agree. Those advocating the use of boycotts maintain that, while any action taken by the UW would have virtually no-impact whatsoever on either the finances of companies with South African interests, or on South Africa’s economy itself, a boycott of products would serve as a political - statement and as a symbol of opposition to apartheid. Other universities might follow UW’s example, and with a combined effort, some impqct would in fact be achieved. On the other hand, any actio,n such as a mandatory boycott of Carling O’Keefe, producers of Carls- ’ berg, Miller, O’Keefe, and Black Label beers, would directly affect a large percentage of the student body, and pose an infringement on their rights. A possible far-reaching effect on the employees of these companies in Canada is another
cause for concern. Apartheid is a moral issue, and any decisions regarding divestment or boycotting put forward by the committee must first be representative of the majority of the university’s student population. Student participa-

Sufficient interest was shown as seven girls attended the, meeting. At the beginning of the meeting, each person introduced herself and presented her personal reasons for wanting to join a sorority. The reasons were varied and interesting. .One was the opportunity to be part of a pioneering group, since this would be UWs first sorority. Another suggested that helpful career connections may be formed. Two others complained that none of the other campus organizations match their interests. Another said that the increase in school spirit generated by the sorori-ty would improve the pdlitical mobilization of students.. All agreed that involvement in such a group would foster deep and lasting friendships and give rise to organizational skills; leadership qu&ies, selfconfidence and professionalism.

The University of ‘Waterloo will receive ;$822,000 over the next three years from the federal government, through the Canadian lntemational Development Agency (CIDA) to continue a $2 million Freshwater Fisheries Development project in Ethiopia. The duration of the first phase was three years, from 1983 to 1986. The second phase will allow research and training to continue until 1989. The project will be carried out in partnership with Addis Ababa University, located in Ethiopia’s capital. Addis Ababa University will provide $569,000 in goods and services; UW will contribute $340,000 in services. Ethiopia, ravaged by famine, ranks as the second poorest country in the world, with an-average per capita income of $140 a year. In-this light, the UW-Addis Ababa fisheries program will increase food supply, specifically in the form of cheap protein. It will also provide constant employment to approximately 3,000 fishermen,

COMMENT Big black hole sucks UW dry
by Steve Kannon Imprint staff Monday’s provincial funding-announcement is certainly a welcome change in the wtiy government has been handing out money for postsecondary education. In the past decade or so, the best this university could hope for was inflationary increases in its operating budget, even though expenses were skyrocketing. With this move, the Liberal government has made a move to correct the neglect in the system - it’s on track, but there’s a long way to go yet. Now that-the government seems to be getting off its collective butt, the administration here should follow suit. The ivjection of new money into the UW system should provide benefits for student - all students. The increase is for basic operations, not for computerization, and certainly not for the new computer research building. So much of UW’s energy and money has been poured into thaIt black hole named after a former premier. The university over-expanded itself, sacrificing more pressing educational needs, for the sake of this building. Now that the financial pressures have been somewhat eased, the administratioo should think first of other campus needs -such as new books for the Arts Library - before sinking any more funds into Doug Wright’s pet projects. ‘Of course, there’s always the option of a voluntary student fee to help finance computer costs. This option, which would see a student referendum on the issue, is seriously being considered as a replacement for the totally involuntary computer fee. If such an idea passed, each student would fork out an additional $60 a term for computer services. Any student who thought the concept acceptable, which the administration obviously thinks is feasible, w’ould soon change his or her mind when tuition takes a four per cent jump for inflation and a further five per cent hike next year\ when the government’s incidental fee ruling comes into play. In this light, the voluntary fee idea is reprehensible. And until the administration proves it’s putting the needs of all student ahead of its own gains, the whole idea is laughable.
The economics of mystici-sm: is this proper in class? by Doug Thompson Imprint staff The Hunger Project is an unusual charity. Unusual in that it attracts intense opposition wherever it goes. It’s UW champion, economics professor John Hotson, says this is because the idea is new. He compared the wisespread media criticism of his group to that experienced by The Church of Scientology, the Jehova’s Witnesses and other new religious ideas. Yet he also maintained that hisgroup is neither a religion nor a ‘cult. “It’s &philosophy” he says.

As a philosophy, it competes in-a marketplace of ideas alongside many others. But it is also a registered charity in Canada which raises money and conducts “Ending Hunger Briefings”. The complaint with the group centres mostly on the fact that these briefings do nothing to end hunger, and of the money it earns in donations, very little ever goes to hungry people. California’s Cult Awareness Group describes The Hunger Project as an organization whose major objective is the perpetuation and,expansion of itself. Its spokesmen admit that its objectives are “educational and inspirational”. In itself, this is not a cause for complaint. What should lead to a reflective second thought is the idea that merely thinking about, talking about, and developing positive attitudes about hunger is enough. Sure, it probably doesn’t hurt, except insofar as thisgroup maintains ‘that its activities will, in fact, end hunger, not by feeding the hungry, but by transforming the consciousness of thdworld as some supernatural level. The card you are asked to sign says you “own” the Hunger Project. The objective of the group is “transform consciousness” and the way to transform consciousness is to adopt this group’s ideas as your own. At least this is what they say. It is all a terribly cruel hoax. Money which might have been donated to groups that actually are investing in development projiects, when delivered to the hands of The Hunger Project, goes to mind transformation and endless publications instead. The briefings consist of hours of horrifying statistics about hunger. Then those who show up are asked to sign a card and give money to the group and are told that this will help the world’s hungry. And if-you want to help even more, you can get more involved in the group and hold briefings yourself. It is a product of the naivete of our times that so many-people can think that talking about the problem is enough, that changing public opinion will feed the starving, that action isn’t needed. It is comforting to.think that, and The Hunger Project is very much into cqmforting people. But it’s not the world’s starving millions who can take comfort in The Hunger Project. Most-comfortable is the organization’s millionaire founder, Jack Rosenberg, alias Werner Erhard. A one time used car salesman from Philadelphia, Rosenberg/Erhard moved to California and established est (Erhard Seminars Training). The guru of
- ?onsc/ousness transformation” grew rich on the now dying fad, and in conjunction with several est alumni, established The Hunger Project in 1977. The theology of the group is that mind controls the world, and if people’s minds can be converted to taking the.problem of hunger very seriously, the problem is solved.
This takes the idea of mind-over-matter to an absurd extreme, and leads to some “transformations” of the English’la.nguage that are as absurd as the group% ideas. What the *groaj> wants, to quote sdme of its own literature’; “is .peo@ev “who have absolutely gotten that hunger can end, and that their lives are about ending it. ” (sic) If that sentence mikes little sense to you, don’t worry, it is an example of the odd manipulation of English which typifies est-like mind transformation, or as it is less flatteringly known, “mind control” techniques. When you “own” the Hunger Project as yours, you -will “have gotten that hunger can end”. Money raised by the group is used to encourage more,people to “own” and- “get” the group’s idea. I have heard the English word “got” used to describe a disease’, “he got the flu”, or even religion, “he got religion” or “he got saved”, but never in regard to a charity. Do you know anyone who “got” the Red Cross or Oxfam? No, this is not a charity of that sort. It-then came to Imprint’s attention that professor Hotson is conducting “Ending Hunger Briefings” in a first year economics cla.ss, complete with the solicitation of signatures on little cards. Indeed, even his exams contain questions about The Hunger Project. This activity, even more than The Hunger Project itself, raises questions and causes concern. Students in class are a captive -audience, there is no chance to walk out and avoid the effort to have one’s consciousness transformed. Further, we have seen professor Hotson in action and noted a most unusual resistance to even considering critical reflection on The Hunger Project. “It’s an idea whose time has come” he says, with the fervour of an Evangelist, and when it is pointed out that many respectable news media, including the CBC, Forbes, and The New Internationalist, to name a few, have published damning exposes on his organization, ‘he characterizes these as false smear campaigns by the uninformed. This refusal to even consider the possibility that an idea different than his own might have some validity surely is much more typical of a religious true-believer than a respectable academic inculcating knowledge sod a capacity for critical thought. That he should be allowed to use a lecturn for s.uch purposes, and a captive audience of students as his congregation is a disgrace to academia. The fact that complaints from students about this activity go back at least five years, and that the problem continues, is another example of the crucial need for campus-wide published course evaluations whereby students have access to the judgments on the courSe of the previous year’s students. Problems like this would never arise with good course evaluations, and if they did, an gxpeditious solution would be assured.

Hunger To the editor, The piece you published in the October 17th Imprint headlined “Group ain’t no charity” is a new low in accurate reporting on The Hunger project. For starters, The Hunger Project is a charity, an educational charity, so recognized by the UN, the development community and the governments of every country in which it does work around the world. At last count, The Hunger Project (THP) has offices and organized activities in 23 countries and more than five million individuali in 152 countries have expressed their commitment to ending hunger by enrolling in THP. As Nigel Martin, executive director of the Canadian cbuncil for international co-operation (a coalition of more than 130 Canadian voluntary organizations involved in global development) puts it, “That such a large number of people . . . have made such a commitment is a very visible, tangible demonstration . . . more and more people are realizing that we don’t have to leave the problems of the world to others to solve. Small as each person’s contribution might appear to be, when you add it up you have an amazing impact in the whole
Project world.” It is particularly inappropriate for Jane Reble to criticize THP for focusing its efforts on education rather than “hunger relief” since the Global Community Centre, where she works, is itself and educational charity. And, of course we have to increase our internal growth if we’re to educate more people. THP in Canada now has a paid staff of eight and much of the work is done by unpaid volunteers like myself. But even h&-e her facts just aren’t right. Yes, education for action is the main thrust of THP and we have raised well over a million dollars for others to spend on hunger relief and development. About the only fact she has straight is that THP has a “tie” to est, which she considers a “cult”, because Werner Erhard founded both and is on the Global board of THP. Serving with him on that board are some of the foremost experts on the planet. I am proud of my participation in The Hunger Project on this camthroughout pus, community, North America and in Europe.

Lighten To the editor, This is in reply to Charles Mak’s comment on rock ‘n’ roll (Imprint, Oct. 31). The main thrust of your article seems to be that progressive music is exploring and representative of exploring and progressive people. Also that since the university is composed of exp‘toring and progressive people that this is the music we all should listen to at Fed Hall, since it is representative of the exploring and progressive nature of the university. However progressiveness is more than listening to music. If firid it hard to believe someone is in touch with what’is representative of humanity at its most exploratory when they must rev&-t
up Chuck!! to insulting anyone who disagrees with their tastes by calling them banal and backward. I also see nothing progressive or exploratory in dictating that people must listen to your musical tastes. University is much more than progressiveness. It is the mixing of many different cultures, ideals, and interests. Learning to have an open mind is probably the most important aspect of a university education.

To the editor. I was shocked to learn about the campaign of the Women’s Centre for sending sanitary napkins to women in Nicaragua.

Off to the Trough! To the editor, ‘Well, the inevitable has finally happened. Last week saw the appearance, all over campus, of nifty blue posters announcing the advent of The Entrepreneur’s Club (“We’re talking business”). They are certainly starting off with a bang; a talk by a TD Bank “Executive V.P.“, no less. Undoubtedly the social event of the season will be covered, in excruciating detail, by a stuck-in-the-sixties reporter from Imprint. Wh& is next? May I suggest a slide presentation of Brian, Mila and the kids tOuring Port-Cartier?A lecture on the virtues of running the country as one vast Kiwanis Club? Perhaps a seminar protesting the innocence of Sinclaii Stevens and Billy Joe (Hell no, I won’t go!) MacLean?The possibil-’ ities are endless.

The. Politics of Food -.
by Roger Musselman WPIRG volunteer For the majority of people on campus, the events of October revolving around food issues, passed with only a moment’s notice. Personally, I attended only one of these events but in retrospect, wish that ,I had taken the time to benefit from the excellent resources and resource people which were available to the university community. It is, after all, these types of events offering a forum for the exchange of ideas that keep Universities on the cutting edge of thought and research. Pat Mooney’s lecture, on October 23, was potentially of interest to all students, regardless of university faculty. “The Politics of Food” touched on bases which are of importance to all of us; technological advancement, biotechnology, corporate concentration, development and underdevelopment, nutrition, conservation and resource exploitation. Mr Mooney managed to tie all of these issues together coherently from a political-economic perspective. He noted that we must be more than passively interested in the events and processes which are taking place around us. More than anything, Mr. Mooney drove home the absurdities of what we have come to call “progress”. In the name of agricultural advancement we have effectively destroyed plant gene pools not only for those plants which are no longer part of our diet, but also for plants which we consider to be-staples of our nutritional input. Crops such as wheat, corn, and barley are not

In turn, the export monocultures which Third World agribusinesses feed on and which have been the preferred policy of international agencies such as the World Bank, help to create the conditions for socio-political unrest. During the media heyday of the African famine, there was extreme attention given to the political orientation of governments in the famine region Oddly enough, at the suggestion of “experts” in the developed world, there is a heavy concentration of meat production for the pet-food market in these countries. What was done in the name of economic expediency fed the dogs and cats of Europe while thousands of people starved to death. ’ Further information on “The Politics of Food” and other food issues are available in the WPIRG Resource Centre which is open Monday-Friday from lo-4:30.

by Robetixay Imprint staff Wracked with indecision, what to write about next . . . oops, haven’t picked up the mail yet, check the mailbox, well, what have we here? Another one of these amusing flyers from the local Scientology clubhouse, What Stands Between You and Real Happiness?. Now, I’m sure we could all have some fun discussing just how my life could be more fulfilling but, seeing as how this paper is PG-rated, perhaps we should just move right along to more pressing matters. More specifically, the Church of Scientology and its charismatic founder, the late L. Ron Hubbard. A small warning first - to deal properly with the Scientology cult and their fascinating view of the, universe is going to take some time, so I’m reserving the next three columns for this, and even that will just scratch the surface. I realize the reference to Scientology as a “cult” is bound to raise the hackles of its loyal followers but the attitude here is, if it walks like a duckand it talks like a duck. . . well, you get the idea. (And lest anyone think that the Scientologists are being unfairly singled out with the
attention they are receiving, I should point out that the’ “scientific” creationists -are also going to be blessed with the same kind of attention. But-l digress. Onward.) As with any cult, there are actually two ways of looking at Scientology. Firstly, there is the official basis (or total lack thereof) for the religious and/or scientific beliefs held- by the devoted followers. Secondly, and quite independently, there are the personalities involved. The reason this distinction is made is that, very simply, it is possible for any system of beliefs, no matter how outrageous or unfounded, to be considered a good thing if the end Lresult is happier, better-adjusted and more productive members of society. (One example of this type of belief system leaps to mind, but we’ll avoid discussion here since it falls outside the scope of this column; use your imagination.)Therefore, to set the tone for the remainder of this topic, we’re going to take care of the personalities first. One measure of how well any organization deals with people is evident in how it deals with its own followers. And to see just how Scientology fares in this respect, who better to ask than an ex-follower?

Although agribusiness in North America relies on genetic input from countries such as Ethiopia and India, agribusiness in those countries has been chiefly responsible for the increasing extinction of biogenetic materials which are essential to North American food production. The fact that both of these agribusiness structures belong to the same corporate network, underlies the absurdity which propels our food industry.

Cyril Vosper was a member of Scientology from 1954 until 1968, when he was expelled for disciplinary reasons. In retaliation for what he considered unfair treatment, Vosper struck back at the cult with his book The Mind Benders (Granada Publishing, 1971). The prologue alone is worth the price of the book, as this is where Vosper describes the circumstances leading up to his being branded a “suppressive person” within the church and his subsequent expulsion. In the opening scene, we find Vosper practically dead on his feet, having been awake almost nonstop for 11 days with perhaps two hours of sleep per night, and not having been allowed to bathe the entire time since he was declared to be in a “Condition of Liability”. After finally being allowed to go, home to sleep, Vosper is awakened less than two hours later by a Scientology Ethics Officer and forced to return to the main office to face a Committee of Evidence. The result of this meeting (which seems to compare only marginally favorably with the Spanish Inquisition) is that Vosper is declared a Suppressive Person and is expelled from the manor grounds that house the Scientologists ~without being allowed to see his family. Charming folks, no? In defense; the Scientologists are quick to point out that this kind of abuse of their own members was officially abolished back around 1970. It may indeed be that the church treats its followers a bit more humanely these days, but they can still kick the. . . uh, daylights out of their critics, given half a chance.
One particularly chilling example of this involves author Paulette Cooper, whose scathing attack on the cult in the form of the book The Scandal of Scientology made her the target of a systematic program of harassment by the church. James Randi, in his classic book ~/&I-I-F/am, reports that Cooper was’immediatelysued bythechurchfor $15 million, “robbed, threatened with a gun, and vilified in letters sent to her neighbors saying that she was a sexual deviant with venereal dise’ase”. Cooper also claims that she was framed on the charge of making bomb threats against the church, and almost landed in jail as a result. This entire incident took a bizarre twist inoctober of 1979, however, when several. Scientologists were convicted of conspiracy after they were found rifling the files of government officials who were involved in an investigation of the cult, and information about the program to discredit Cooper (codenamed “Operation PC Freakout”) was uncovered, allowing Cooper to launch her own $40 million countersuit. Another target of the church has been the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP), a Buffalo-based debunking ,organization, along with its official journal, The Skeptical inquirer. And much as I would like to get into how the Scientologists tried to discredit CSICOP in the eyes of major religious leaders (an incident involving letters with bogus CIA letterheads), I figure it’s about time to wrap this up. After all, we still have a couple of columns to go, and it only gets more bizarre. Stay tuned, campers.

Other patients complained rowdy students in and near the hospital were keeping them awake. Despite these charges, Queen’s University student union president Jim Hughes said, that this year’s Homecoming was “low-key” and that the legal street party, organized by the student union, succeeded in keeping other, illegal parties under control. “It was pretty casual,” said Hughes, adding he had “reservations” about how arrests were made at the street party. “I guess they [police] got pumped up for this event too,” said Hughes. “They had a very confrontational attitude. They were telling [students and alumni] constables what to do, and were very tough and aggressive in their ticketing.“But Queen’s representative Dick Bowman said the university has no intention of cancelling Homecoming. “Queen’s has been proud of this event for 10 years. . . the rnost spirited universities have the most spirited Homecomings,” he said.

University by John Gushue Canadian University Press OTTAWA (CUP) - The 1980s would be the decade during which post-secondary enrollment bottomed out, the demographers predicted. But the demographers were wrong. While the age group that traditionally has the heaviest post-secondary participation rate 17-2 1 -year-olds - has narrowed considerably in the last decade, colleges and universities across the
enrollment country are reporting another year of steady enrollment increases. An informal telephone survey conducted by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) confirms that predictions made 20 years ago are completely wrong. “We originally saw the group of 17-21 year olds declining, and we expected the participation rate to be about the same,” said AUCC researcher Marino Kristjanson. “perhaps we were relying too much on

connecting these two.” According to the AUCC, enrollment across Canada has increased for the seventh consecutive year. Full-time undergraduate enrollment is up by 1.3 per cent, with the largest increases - 6.3 and 4.4 per cent, respectively - reported in Newfoundland and Saskatchewan. “We would have predicted differently,” said Krisjanson. “I think we would have expected *an overall decrease of at least that much.” Most education groups and critics

say high unemployment rates are keeping many young people in school. “What we have now is the unwilling student,” said Lynn McDo-nald, federal New Democrat post-secondary critic. ‘Enrollment is up because jobs are scarce.”
With federal and provincial go vemments restricting post-secondary funding, education lobby groups say the quality of education in Canada is declining. Increased enrollment means heavier workloads for faculty, whose numbers have not grown to match the swell in student numbers. “There are no resources to cover the increased enrollments,” said Vie Sim of the Canadian Association of University Teachers. “Students have been affected by a lower quality education, but it is the faculty who have been bearing the day-to-day effects of underfunding,” he said.
Jean Wright, an accessibility researcher for the Canadian Federation of Students, said groups that traditionally have avoided universities are now unexpectedly enrolling. “For example, women who are older and who are going back to school is the trend that no one really predieted,” she said.

Although the fad has waned, his efforts are now directed into apparently philanthropic activities, such as THP on whose Board of Directors he selves along with many est ‘graduates’ . It is not only the reputation of Werner Erhard which is leading some people and organizations to seriously question The Hunger Project. “its critics argue that The Hunger Project is capitalizing on people’s concern about world poverty and using it to insinuate the ideas of a mind-manipulating cult.” according to the New Internationalist. THP claims to have three million members worldwide. To be a member, one signs a card saying “The Hunger Project is mine completely.” The signer is expected to check off one or more of six boxes outlining what he/she will do to “express commitment”. One of these choices is to contribute monthly to THP, another is to enroll others in THP, a third is. to participate with THP. Prof. Hotson occasionally gives “Ending Hunger Briefings” on campus and teaches material from the group’s book in his classes. The approach THP uses in rec’ruiting new members and in their literature is very similar to est briefings. Accordin to The New Intemationalist (June 3 85), “. . . many of the Pro. ject’s key organizers are est ‘graduates’ and many of the tech-

niques it applies to thought (or nonthought) about hunger issues are strikingly similar.” Hotson himself is a ‘graduate’ of est. According to the CBC’s “Fifth Estate” program of October 28, THP raised $7 million last year, but only spent $235,000 of it on direct aid to the hungry. However, THP does not claim to use their money or time on directly aiding hungry people. Instead, members concentrate on promoting awareness of the problem of world hunger and on “education and inspiration”. Most of their energy is used to promote THP itself through seminars, “briefings”, newspapers and newsletters published by THP. THP runs ads asking for donations so they can, among other things, run’ more ads. Their ads have appeared in major newspapers, but usually run i in their own publications, including 1 one they describe as the “largest circulation newspaper. on the planet.” They ask for money, sometimes for t other organizations such as Save 1 The Children, but many ads simply 1 ask for contributions to THP. What exactly the money is used for is not clear. THP is very vague about where it goes citing “education and awareness” over and over. Some of it may be going to pay legal fees judging by the number of organizations the Project is suing or threatening to sue including the CBC and COMA (Council On ‘Mind Abuse).

COMA readily responds to enquiries regarding THP and wag at the University of Guelph warning students about the group. Other wamings come from Cult Awareness in California who describe THP as an organization “whose major objective is the perpetuation and expansion of itself ‘. Although THP has drawn harsh criticism, it has also received endorsements from prominent members of UN committees, and from the Globe and Mail in a March 24 editor. ial. In November, 1983, former Kitchener MP Peter Lang endorsed the group only to retract ‘his endorse-. ment in February of 1984 after being given more information on the organization. This year, the Metro Toronto Separate School Board, which had allowed THP briefings in its schools, banned the group because of its techniques. The uncertainty surrounding THP stems partly from its own literature in which vague catch phrases are used repeatedly such as “an idea whose time has come”, “a context includes all positions” and “political will”. Uncertainty on other fronts comes from projects like the $1 million development effort in Costa Rica, funded jointly with Save The Children. Costa Rica is the only Latin American country in which hunger is not considered a major problem. Why Costa Rica? Forbes magazine (Nov. 18/85) may have found the answer. “One reason may be the man who put the deal together, a prominent ‘Costa Rican government official and friend of Erhard’s named Fernando Flares-Banuet. He just happens to be the same individual whose San Jose Charity served as a conduit for the $15 million Zurich loan to Erhard in 1981.” Erhard persuaded prominent banker Wolfgang Somary to loan the money to “Werner Erhard & Associates’ (a sole proprietorship) which would be transformed into a charity and the funds used to “benefit the world”. The money was loaned, at a two per cent interest rate, through the Intercultural Cooperation foundation in Zurich. The money went first to a bank in Panama Cii, then through “what appears to be a spur. ious Costa Rican foundation” in San Jose called the Fundacion Soberana Orden de San Juan de Jerusalen. This group “had in fact been set up by an Erhard friend (Flares-Banuet) several days before the transfer occurred, and also stood to benefit.” What was actually done with the money? $1.6 million was used to pay off Erhard’s personal debt. $1.5 million went to purchase “a body of knowledge” from a firm in the Netherlands called Welbehagen (pleasure) which turned out to be owned by something called the Werner Erhard Foundation for est in Zurich. $8.5 million was used to “buy” assets for Werner Erhard & Associates from a charitable trust he had established in Jersey (ownership of said trust consigned to a California company called est). Another $900,000 was used to purchase artwork directly from the trust. What this boils down to is $12.5 million went to either Erhard directly or to trusts owned ^ by est. As late as the end of 1985, the original $15 million loan had not been repaid.

A student of Hotson’s in the fall of 1983 said that one-third of the course dealt- with world hunger and Economics 102 students who took the course in the 1984 winter term said two to three weeks were spent on the topic of hunger. Professor Hotson is a volunteer for The Hunger Project. He has been conducting Ending Hunger Briefings for the past eight years on campus. The Hunger Project, an organization which aims to solve world hunger through educational seminars and raising public consciousness, has been widely criticized for its activities.

, Lizardk Night Out by Scott Gardner Imprint Staff The British band Shriekback was 1in Toronto Sunday night supporting their most recent release, Big Night Music, with a live show at the Concert Hall. Taking the stage about 8:30, the Shriekback Big Live Band treated the audience to an onslaught of their brand of syntho-popfunk for close to two full hours. Spending less time with his synthesizers and keyboards, an area left solely in the nimble hands of Steve Halliwell, head-man Barry Andrews, looking like an insane Bhuddist monk, leapt about the stage with apparent glee all the while flashing his slick reptilian grin. Although most of the material was taken from Big Night Music which relies less on banks of Fairlights and sequencers than earlier Shriekback offerings, songs from their previous album, Oil and
Gold, Rises heads cover Edge dies,
such as Everything That Must Converge and Hammerwere included along with a of the Defunkt tune Razor’s and classic Shriekbackian olLined Up, My Spine and Feel-
The eight-piece band was extremely tight due, greatly in part, to the super-chunky backbeat provided by bassist Dave Allen and drummer Martyn Barker who lived up to Andrews’ claims that they are “the best fucking rhythm section” in music. The lack of any opening act and the $17 dollar ticket price made the evening seem too short despite the enthusiasm of the band. Still, for a brief time, Shriekback could not help but entrance the Concert Hall by revealing to the audience the strange mystical world that exists in the head of Barry Andrews.

‘Images In Vogue
Call It . by Charles Mak Imprint staff Alternative popsters Images in Vogue pulled into .Fed Hall once again, last Friday night, playing a sold out show in front of a most ‘conspicuous looking crowd. It may have been Hallowe’en time, but I’m sure- that Dale Martindale, lead singer for the band, took the frivously dressed crowd as being rather flippant. His casual mutterings and apparent indifference to the audience must have been a reflection of his disdain at the eclectic colours and styles of costumes in front of him. Absent from the band were Ed Shaw and Glenn Watson, both of whom left the band due to musical differences. Martindale told me they wanted to turn the band into an ‘Idle Eyes’, something the other band
members obviously couldn’t accept. As Joe Vizvary, keyboarist for the band, said: “We’re an alternative that does not subscibe to the cliches of business and music.” Images in Vogue replaced the departed duo with only one person, Tim Welch, a guitarist with a rather sleazy looking aura and an incredibly raunchy playing style The band brought with them a lot of new material that has yet to be released on vinyl. The new stuff departed from the bands particular synth approach by relying on new man Tim “the tart” Welch’s grinding guitar rifts. His style drowned out the synth washes to the detriment of the band’s synthesized integrity.
from a Shriek man -
their five years of existence, they have moved from the amoebic thump of Tenth to the dinosaur bump of Lined Up and My Spine to the reptile whun@ of Oil and Gold, their last album. This time around, Shriekback are without Carl Marsh who left before the Big Night Music was made. He along with Barry Andrews, wrote most of Shriekbacks’ songs. Imprint got the chance to talk to David Allen, bass player and one of Shriekback’s founding members. Imprint: So, why did Carl Marsh leave the band? I. David Allen: I think that he just wanted to do something on his own. Simple as that. He wasn’t too happy working with us at the time. He felt that he could do something different, though nothing seems to have happened. Maybe he’s decided that he doesn’t want to do anything - I don’t know. Imprint: Has his departure changed the sound of the band, or is Shriekback still pretty much the same entity? D.A.: Have you heard the new album? Imprint: Yeah. D.A.: Well, think overall what you hear on the album is the new sound, without Carl. The sound is more complete - more of a one sound than we had before. When we had Barry and Carl both writing songs, there were two slightly different styles and it was awkward mixing them together when it came time to put an album together. Now, with Barry as the principal writer, there’s a very unified sound to it. Imprint: Do you think having a more unified sound will help you out in the long run? D.A.: I think Shriekback does require a limited area to work in, and, as you say, this way people can say “right, that’s what they do.” We still want to be exciting and different, but you need a certain cohesion to allow people to get through the door, as it were. Imprint: Now for a bit of ancient history. What hap-
pened with Y Records (Shriekback’s first record company). How did it come to break up and how did Shriekback come to leave it? D.A.: It was pretty simple really. Y Records weretrying to break Shriekback in Britain and get Lined Up into the Top 40. And, to do that, you have to invest a lot of money. They just over-stretched their resources. They had to bail themselves out with a licensing deal with Arista Records. Under that deal, if anything ever happened between us ahd Y, we had to go to Arista. So Y just ran out of money and we were stuck with Arista. But we’ve actually managed to escape that deal and we’re signed to Island worldwide now. Imprint: You used the word “stuck”, were there some bad things about being signed to Arista?D.A.! Well, they just didn’t ’ know how to deal with, the band at all. What we were used to with Y was a one-to-one relationship with the president, Dick O’Dell he did everything at the record company and knew what we were about. Whereas with Arista, it was a big company that wanted Top40 hits and.nothing else. Imprint: Do you think that being with Island, who have lot of experience dealing with nonchart music like Reggae and Go-Go, is good for Shriekback? D.A.: Oh yeah, Island are the perfect company for Shriekback. What things do and don’t you like about the British music scene at the moment? D.A.: At the moment, I complain bitterly. I live in London so you’d think that this is the place to be for music, but there’s literally nothing happening, so it’s really disappointing. Imprint: Did you encounter _ much of a music scene in Australia and New Zealand when you played there. It seems like there’s a lot of stuff going on but it’s hard to find out because it’s so far away. D.A.: Again, I had a problem
there. In Sydney, I was expecting to hear a lot of good, music. I’ve got a friend there, Lyndon Barber, who used to write for Melody Maker. I went to his house, had dinner and said “right Lyndon, let’s go and see these bands”. He was just as disheartened as I am - there’s nothing going on there either. There is a lot of revitalizing of old stuff like the psychedelic scene - everyone’s taking acid but there’s something not quite right. There was one band however, who played with us in Auckland, New Zealand called. the Car Crash Set and they were good. They’ve been doing some recording in London so there should be something out by them. I’d check them out. Imprint: What kinds of things can you see happening to Shriekback in the future. Do you have a direction in mind or are you just going to let the changes happen as they may? D.A.: I think that the next album will probably be another departure. Most likely, it will emphasize the harder sound of the band. There’ll probably be some really hard, upbeat, over-the-top dance songs. Yeah, I think we want to do something loud and noisy now. So, look for that early next year. Have you gotten into Go-Go much because it seems like everyone I talk to from England is into it now. D.A.: Hey! This is my chance to drop names now . ‘. . Imprint: Come on, who are you hanging around with? D.A.: This is years ago actu(ally. About five years ago, when Y records just started, we ‘were sent the tapes of . Trouble funk’s original Drop The Bomb 12”. We weren’t able to buy it, but we were trying to license it. This was years ago and now it’s the big thing, so we’re all smug saying “I told you so” and all that. Imprint: That’s neat! Anyway, thanks for talking to us and good luck on the tour. D.A.: Yeah, thanks a lot. See I w.

Things have changed drastically, bwever, in recent years and W.P. nsella has been at the forefront of is new direction. Dipping into the :h pool of magic realism, Kinsella, 10 read at St. Jerome’s last week, pites some of today’s most sideblitting fiction with an imagination at can unerringly find hilarious ablrdity in the most mundane of evyday situations.

Throughout the reading, Kinsella brought the stories a vitality and added humour by playing all the characters with different voices and even adding implied vocal inflections in the narration. His deadpan recounting of thoroughly bizarre events and people only served to make the stories funnier yet. It’s unusual that a literary reading will leave an audience wiping tears of mirth from their faces afterward. A question-and-answer. session followed the reading: Imprint: What led to your obsession with baseball? Kinsella: It all sort of happened after the fact. I guess i\t’s the “implied author syndrome” - I wrote a couple of baseball stories and suddenly I became an expert. I urn a baseball fan, but I’m not quite as fanatical as my characters. It was kind of like poetry writing the beginning of Shoeless Joe (Kinsella’s multiaward-winning novel); it was a sort of homage to baseball. Does it have something to do with baseball being such an important part of North American culture? Definitely. It’s part of the ritual of growing up. I think that’s what attracted me to Sallinger - Catcher in the Rye is the quintessential book of growing up male in North America. But baseball is also more conducive to fiction than other sports. Baseball has no time limit ’ and no limit to the field theoretically. All you have are two-foul lines that go on forever and I think this makes for a mythology and larger than life characters within baseball. Someone like Wayne Gretzky may be a great athlete, but he’s still limited by the smallness of a hockey rink. Did this lead to the more magical qualities of The Iowa Baseball Confederacy (his last novel, about a ball game that lasted 40, days and nights)? . Yeah, it’s the same genre as Shoeless Joe except that it has more magE and a darker magic than Shoeless Joe which was all sweetness and light. I guess I should learn from that. The’ Iowa Baseball

Triple bill rocks Larry’+ Hideaway
by Tim Walker Imprint staff I travelled to Toronto October 30 *to take in a show headlined by The Pursuit of Happiness (TPOH) at Larry’s. Also on the bill were Redline and the Dancing Counts. After finding out that the guest list was not in order my two companions and I forked out the three bucks necessary to get in - the money was well spent. The first band out was the Dancing Counts. The band’s hard driving style was much appreciated by the small partisan crowd. To appreciate the band’s appearance you have to imagine a sixties psychedelic band fronted by Adam Ant. The band played through a set of loud but unrecognizable songs except for a very modernized version oflncense
This new style in sound has also come about because the band has not found a replacement keyboardist. Working with two instead of three keyboardists certainly changes things. As a result Images in Vogue have had to compromise their synthesized approach. Fortunately, “the tart” didn’t butcher the bld stuff like Lust for Love, In the House, and Call it Love. However great or not so great the new stuff may have been at the show, it was the old stuff that really got the dance crowd going. Most noticeable of the new material were the songs Euolution and I saw a man. The latter is a funky and pulsating number that will be released as. the band’s next single, said Martindale. Unfortunately, the band’s rather phlegmatic stage presence really distanced ___--. the act from the audience on hand despite the fact that the
crowd was responding quite well to the music being played. For all intents and purposes the crowd might just as well have been dancing to taped music. By walking off the stage after the-last song and not acknowledging the rec,eptive crowd in any manner, Martindale and company effectively succumbed to bad PR. Their rather enigmatic approach detracted somewhat from an otherwise enjoyable night. Nevertheless the overall performance that Images in Vogue presented at Fed Hall was fine. The band was not as destructively loud as Skinny Puppy was and the instumental arrangements were well balanced although the soundman should have brought the synthesizers a tad more to the fore and reduced the impact of neo-glam rocker “the tart’s”guitar licks. Incidentally this guy just doesn’t fit the synth pop image.
The next band, Redlife, continued the assault on our ears. Their music was a complete switch from the previous band. The band reminded me most of a speeded up version of The Smiths. The lead vocalist, who often assumed the prayer. position on stage, had the same sort of flat sound and limited range as Morrisey. This singer, however, obviously distressed at sounding like the aforementioned “singer” continually yelled at the soundman to reset his equipment., Maybe The Smiths should change their soundcrew as well. Although I liked the Dancing Counts better than Redlife, I was voted down 2-l by my photographer and my alu_mni input. It was agreed, however, that both bands were worth the price of admission on their own. After a much appreciated quiet break, TPOH took the stage. Immediately we were taken by the androgynous appearance of the lead singer. His thrashing about on stage soon brought our doubts to a conclusive end. By now the bar was full of appreciative fans and a lot of midaged fat men trying to impress their much younger dates with their “currentness”. The set immediately caught the audience’s attention with a song whose chorus exhorted an unspecified person to do something to a certain bit of a specified male’s body if person one continued to show a bad attitude. The show got even better. It climaxed with the band’s big song I’m an Adult Now. Unfortunately, the band finished up with two @#$#@$ songs sung by their two back up singers/go-go girls. TPOH’s stage show needs some polishing. For instance, they have to get rid of their back up singers. The girls are g6od singers but they are

in the Pursuit holding their lead singer back. Also the bassist should start to move about on stage a bit. If he hadn’t stumbled a couple of times the coroner would have been called. Only their lead singer magnetic stage presence is not in need of any work. TPOH is a new band out of Toronto headed up by Moe Berg, the vocalist and guitarist. Johnny Sinclair and Dave Gilby are on bass and percussion respectfully. The go-go twins are Tam and Tasha Amabile, which according to my Italian authority means loveable. They’ may indeed be loveable but we felt they were cramping the band’? style. Musically the band is not very polished but they retain a very energetic sound and Moe Berg’s guitar playing is inspired to say the least.

The Pursuit of Happiness’s first effort on vinyl should be out soon as Imprint has received a promotional copy. The two song 12” single is a respectable effort. The A side is I’m an Adult Now and the B side is She’s So Young. The A side is by far the better of the two. It has much to recommend it. The beat is danceable and the guitar is intriguing. The second song is okay but has no characteristics to lift it above the ordinary. The single is entitled The Pursuit Of Happiness and is on an independent label.

The Woodentops melodic uniqueness hasn’t been sacrificed at the altar of beat, either - Rolo’s wonderfully catchy melodies are still there - when he’s not crouched on the floor shouting. Though - Rolo’s manic, grinning self doesn’t really need any help in keeping the front part of the stage lively, sometimes, when he’s dancing with the crowd or sharing a bottle of wine with them, it might be nice to have someone there to help with the melody that’s where Simon Mawby (feedback guitar) and Alice Thompson (Ice Queen and Casio 201 player) help out. Simon has the strength of body to maintain warp-speed rhythm guitar for the whole show while Alice (bless her ’60s Go-Go boots) is more than adornment . . . No. Really. Rolo is a benevolent Elf King to his band members: he writes the music, the lyrics, recommended that Alice move up from the “gritty” (so sayeth Alice) Casio 101 to the modern Casio 201he even offered to lend Benny the hubcaps from his dad’s car to bash on (well, he would if his dad let him). He does all this with a kiss on the hand and an impish grin making it all seem ordained ,by Santa. Rolo wasn’t always Elf King however, once upon a time he too slaved away making presents while moonlighting as bass player for Liverpool recording legends The Wild Swans. Reflecting from his throne on past glories, thus spake Rolo: I wasn’t
with The Wild Swans for too long really, just for some demos, The Revolutionary Spirit record and a tour. Songwriting wasn’t really part of my involvement - Z had a bit to do with the B-Side of the record, but not the singing. Zdidn’t really like the idea of just playing bass. So he left to begin his new adventure - enchanted sword on his hip and potion of forget in his sack.
Ikons in your livingroom by Neil Swanson Kerry Brock
The only thing better than listening to the Ikons in my livingroom is listening to the Ikons in the Cabana Room. The Cabana Room is ‘a homey, not unlike my livingroom (same paneling) atop the Spadina hotel in Toronto and the Ikons are one of the best bands in the world of Toronto’s hip, eclectic, totally cool music scene. They take the stage as their calm, cool, reserved selves (John Critchley singer/guitarist, Mike Robbins guitar, Jim Hughes bass, Grant Ether drums) and belt out two full sets of solid originals with the minor exception of two qld, unrecognizable country‘ditties thrown in at the
end for good measure. Their guitar sound experiences wide mood swings from a loose jangly feel of early ‘foots guitaring to .the dark dnarchjc ‘jamming of the original Velvet Underground. I have heard comparison of John’s voice to Gord Gano (of Violent Femmes fame) but without the whine. Suppose so. The lyrics are equally diverse, recounting seemingly pointless tales of cowboys and Indians on Indian Arrow to songs of love gone lost, III Change and No More Flowers. Good use of dynamics makes them a bit hard to dance to but great to listen to. I’m convinced that, if they could find themselves an independent label to provide ssmedistribution, they would really catch ‘on. But until then, for your living
room listening pIeasure, they have two cassettes available, 16 songs total and all for just eight bucks! Their first one, self-titled The Ikons takes a look at a lighter carefree side of things while their latest release, the Ikons Demo, adopts a harsher more moody personality which slows the songs down a bit but still maintains the intensity level. They must have moved out of the basement and into the garage for this one as the recording quality is noticeably improved. With these two tapes under their belts it is only a matter of time before these Ikons create some groovy Iconoclastic plastic. Let’s hope it happens soon.(They would be the perfect band to open for Billy Bragg on the 29th.)

The show itself was a raucous affair complete with flailing bodies on the dancefloor and calculated madness on stage. Even the beret-ed hepcats (. . . they looked like they should have been wearing berets) got excited enough to clap (loudly) and shout (not too loudly) ‘enough ribaldry to encourage The Woodentops to play two encores. The second encore contained two unexpected gifts from Rolo’s sack Steady, Steady and Do It Anyway, the two B-Sides from Moue Me. Both are played live very rarely and were performed on this occasion at the bequest ,of a Nerve reporter who wishes to remain anonymous
(Rick McGinnis). The Woodentops have gained a certain infamy in England due to a bomb threat they made in jest to The Smiths, who are also on Rough Trade Records. Poor Morrissey, venomous in the realization that his fear and fainting had been for nought, took to call&g The Woodentops “The Sudden Flops”. King Rolo described his current relations with the Smiths: Z’m really good friends with Andy Rourke, the bassist, and Ilike Johnny Marr because he seems to be CJnice bloke, but Isn not too sure about the singer. The Woodentops are magnifi-
cently mad, joyous experience. With the except’ion of the Grinchily swirling Steady, Steady, their songs were a distillation of the happiness of opening presents. When we left Rolo was jumping about nervously on the tips of his toes, Benny and Frank were shouting the virtues of Trouble Funk and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alice was sitting down demurely next to the boredlooking shopping mall chick groupies and Simon, little Simon was nowhere to be seen - off making presents I suppose.

David Byrne’s Talking by Jeffery Preyra imprint staff The world is a strange place. It produces people so odd that they could only have sprung from the pages of a supermarket tabloid. Well look out! Here they come landing fully grown onto the treeless plain of Virgil, Texas. David Byrne, writer and singer of the band Talking Heads, and now’ co-writer, and narrator of the movie True Stories has assembled the oddest compendium of characters that ever populated a movie screen. These characters include Louis cyne (John Goodman) who is looking for a wife. His search methods include flashing signs and television ads. We have the Lazy Woman (Swoosie Kurtz) who.has so much money, she can afford to stay in bed. all day long. We have Civic Leader brl Culver (Spalding Gray) who uses lobster and vegetables to dem-
onstrate a point about economics and mobility. There are others including a voodoo priest, a chronic liar and a security,guard who spontaneously breaks out in song on a lonely stage in the middle of the darkening Texas plain. Among the odd characters is the narrator himself. Wild-eyed and just out of phase with his environment, he shifts in to talk to the characters and, turning around to address the audience, suddenly. joins the observer and the observed. Surrounding all this is the landscape. Coming on like a CanLit experience, it is huge and the tiny characters are pulled into sharp focus by the hazy sun and the big blue sky. The focus of the town is the local mall; clean, bright and-with ample parking, it is where the characters go to meet. One of the incidents in the mall brought the movie into sharp focus. It wasn’t the fashion
show featuring grass and masonry clothing. It was the two boys, themselves part of the movie, laughing uproariously at the tabloid they were reading. Here again it seems that Byrne makes the viewers, laughing at the movie a direct part of the action. You can laugh at this movie just like laughing at a video of the National Enquirer. Still, you can’t laugh out loud at everything. There are undertones here, &out small town life, about attitude and about morality and religion (The Virgilians make it up as they go.) This is an odd movie in the same way that Talking Heads are an odd band. If you like their music, if you have an interest in architecture, fashion or the social impact of shopping malls then go see this movie. Personally I liked it, especially the lip-synch competition with no less than two people doing spastic imitations qf Byrne himself.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL Director
. . . Los Alamos
The primary strength of Billy Bragg’s songwriting is his ability to, consistently transcend the limitations of language in conveying pathos and emotion. The combination of his masterful prose and the simple, sympathetic .music in which he presents them gives his songs of romance directness and poignancy unequalled in popular music. He never stobps to callous, cruel modern romantic myth or cliche - myth and cliche which causes so much heartbreak among those duped into believing it by modern culture. The other side of Billy Bragg’s writing is the vitriolic social comment. With pointed question and even sharper observation, he uses his guitar as a shield and his words as a broadsword, slashing through . falsehood and hypocrisy. Yet somehow, preaching from his soapbox, Billy Bragg never gives the impression of talking down to the listeners, he seems as warm as when he’s writing about teenage romance.’

Despite it all, she is hurts, more to see him walking out the door. As the song finishes, Billy slings his guitar over his shoulder and walks into-the night to a swirl of muted trumpet and conga drum . . . ahhhh. Like thegreat soul vocalists, Billy Bragg’s vocal power comes from not only what he does, but just as importantly, what he doesn’t do. He never goes over the top into melodrama or cliche. His feel for understatement and his right-on timing more than make up for -what he lacks in raw vocal ability. Sometimes words spoken softly cut deepest of \all.
Talking With The Taxman closes out with its masterpiece, The Home Front. A simple arrangement of trumpet and guitar envelops what is possibly Bragg’s finest lyric to date. In this Holy of Holies, the Home not all is happy - violence, loneliness, futility and psychic numbness tear at the facade which begins to fade like posters peeling form a wall. We are paralysed by that cruelest of all psychological diseases, Nostalgia - which has replaced religion as the opium of the age. We are clock watchers, all of us - counting down to what? Death? War? - that’ s up to the listener to guess. As the song segues into a hymn at its conclusion Billy Bragg begins the first verse again, hinting at a sense of futility not seen before in his writing. Talking With The Taxman About Poetry is a masterful display of prosaic poignancy and directness. Billy Bragg creates vignettes of immense force and sincerity which cannot even be hinted at in the ramblings of a second-rate reviewer. Talking With The Taxman possesses a life-affirming power which only a fraction of a percent of music ever achieves. Note: Billy Bragg will be playing at Fed Hall on Saturday, November 29. His live performances’ are legendary - don’t miss it.

by Pete Lawson Imprint staff Oh wow! To be subdued to sit and listen to a record is a strong compliment for any record. The irony that the music on GPR Live in Session is not the overwhelming force, because the technical sound of this digital pressing overshadows the music, leaves tepid feelings for the music but a thirst for future releases of equal technical quality from GRP Records. Rarely is the technical information on an album sleeve noteworthy, but when an album delivers such brilliant sound reproduction a mention is in order. Recorded on a Sony PCM3324 Digital Recorder and mixed’ to the JVC DAS900 Digital Audio Mastering System, the sound is riveting and provides the example why JVC (through their JVC Jazz Festival 85) and GRP Records con-l netted to highlight their technical expertise. The group hailed as the GPR AllStars consisted of Lee Ritenour (guitar), Dave Grusin (keyboards), Dave Valentin (flute), Diane Schuur (vocal), Carlos Vega (drums), Abraham Laboriel (bass), and Larry Williams (keyborads and sax) during the JVC Jazz- Festival 85.

Ray Condo on the independent Pipeline Records label. The music has a solid base of hop\ ping country, rockabilly, surf, and boogie-blues with a squeeze of humour yhich at times is reminiscent of the early Cramps. The approach of lots of howlin’ and a little croonin’ is supported by slap bass fiddle, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, fiddle, and drums. The craziness jumps in with Greenback Dollar and then swings with a rockabilly legend Carl Perkins with his Your True Love. Yeah hooo is the reaction for the honkytonkin’ Freight Train which sings of riding the train home after breaking jail. Grusin, a celebrated composer of movie and TV music. This Hollywood focus is the problem for this record; the inclusion of the theme from St. Elsewhere (a Dave Grusin composition) is inappropriate outside prime time. The opening cut,‘Mountain Dance composed by Dave Grusin, was used as the theme music for Falling in Lowe staring Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro, and despite a pretty main theme, the music feels like background music. A low point of this album -concludes the first side; The Rit Vuriations is a rock-jazz which is reminiscent of the worst that “progressive-rock” had to offer in the mid ’70s. The guitar is dominant from Lee Ritenour who fails on this aggressive number (he is renowned for his soft pop-jazz). The other cuts fair better. Oasis has an undercurrent of Latin swing, with bold flute by Dave Valentin, Reverend Lee receives a soulful blast from vocalist Diane Schuur who possesses a boss sound, and Rio Funk is a guitar funky number which shifts from a hip buster (needs a squeeze more bass) to a more subdued swing. The album’s best, Dolphin Dream Lee Ritenour’s tune, has a long melody line played by Larry Williams on tenor sax. All of the music, those that offend and those that please, are overshadowed by the technical sound of this pressing. Future albums of equal quality would be of interest, but GRP Liue in Session will not float to the top of a record collection. vous.

While cruising Park Ave.- (Mont- , real neon Greek strip), the middle east harmonies of Sk& Bop Baby would augment the atmosphere, and the albums title track, Crazy Date, takes a warped surf approac h. A pumped up version of Willing and Ready, a late ’50s Sun Records hopper by Ray Smith, borders on the manic. From an up tempo country-tonk, Jolie Ti Catin, to Who’s Baby Are You/ Oh &Iby which progresses (or digresses) from a froIic king swinger to a howlin’ boogie-blues, and then to Push Button Boogie with a bass slap that could help throw a disc, Ray and the Goners bang out some infectious strut before finishing with the only crooning number, Pot ketful of
Rainbows. The album kicks out a good time approach to classic rock ‘n’ roll accompanied by an undercurrent of distorted humour. For those souls who feel their love for rock ‘n’ roll is being ignored at Fed Hall, ask for Ray Condo and the Hardrock Goners because these cats state the past but are vital for the present.

Thinking about it though, it’s a stroke of marketing genius, more than Billy Idol was ever capable of, Love and Rockets now attract both headbangers and the dyed-black hair “alternative” dregs.

The exception and the best song of the lot is Yin and Yang The Flowerpot Men, a Bo Diddley/rockabilly rave-up which is interesting for . . . oh . . . at least a minute.

The four songs on found on their latest E.P. Sticks And Stones (and rumoured to be their final release as L’etranger) is no exception. The first song Time and Place brings to mind the Alarm in its anthemic nature. Unfortunately it also stumbles with the Alarm’s hamfisted melodrama letting slip nearly all of the warmth of Andrew Cash’s most personal composition he’s yet written. Trail of Tears shows Cash still hasn’t totally shaken the Clash shadow hanging over him with a Strummerish reference to “cocacola”, yet if we look at the stats, no one could outdo Cash’s allusion : word ratio.

No grisly accents or strange mispronunciations, just 40 or so minutes of skull-screamin’ rock ‘n’ roar and more. The Pushtwangers also incorporate a horn section and strings into their snarling mix for a sound as unconventional as it is groovy. Coming from Sweden does have its advantages in that influences from other countries can be heard and absorbed yet they can remain isolated enough to avoid becoming American or English recording and mixing conventions. Thus, as you might guess, this allows for some very unique productions.

the Warriors match
football club the Queen’s
by Mike Brown Imprint staff The Warrior’s rugby successes and failures have been recorded on the Imprint’s sports page w,ith a whole slew of headlines this year: Warriors Rugby defeats Queen’s in home opener; UW Rugby team grabs lead in OUAA standings; Rugby Warriors win; Rugby Warriors lose second game to Mac; Warriors rugby, keep playoff hopes alive with York win; and, Rugby season ends in s-way tie, team enters semi-final playoffs. After seeing an exciting trend of success develop for the Warriors over the season, it is this final headline of the year that makes ‘a definite break from the accustomed winning trend. In a loss disappointing to the players and fans alike, the Warriors were eliminated from contention for the OUAA championships in semi-final action last weekend. Waterloo went down in defeat at the hands of the Queen’s Gaels by a- score of 17-6. Before the game, the atmosphere in the Warrior change room was mixed. Coach Mark Harper (1985/86 OUAA coach of the year) told the team he knew they were capable of being the best in the league. Just prior to kickoff the general attitude was intense; the team was psyched for the game. During the first few minutes of the game both teams had exchanged blows. Waterloo and Queen’s both clearly wanted to dominate each other. Queen’s was first to gain ground with an early try. A grubbed kick down the sideline-found its way into the Warrior try zone. In a struggle to clear the ball from ‘Waterloo territory a Queen’s player was able to smother the ball for the try while some frustrated Warriors looked on. Still behind Queen’s at the beginning of the second half, the Warriors were further frustrated after the Gaels robbed Waterloo of another try. This time a Queen’s player snatched the ball from the Warrior’s strum half who was attempting to clear the ball out of the Waterloo try zone once again. With Queen’s converting the
second ,try the Warriors were down 10-O. . In the middle of the second half the Warriors finally found room to run the ball in for their first try. Mark Schneider broke away from the Queen’s pat and found Hayden Belgrave who ran the ball up the field until inside center Tony Stea took the passed ball in for a well earned score. Counting Paul Toon’s conversion the score was Queen’s 10, Waterloo 6. With the prospect of elimination, the Warriors put forthan all out effort. The Warriors big chance was thwarted when they were-inches from the Queen’s try line advancing the ball with a ten man strum. Four points seemed inevitable but the referee’s whistle sounded as the Queen’s side collapsed the strum rendering the Warriors scoreless in their \ attempt. Late in the second half, Queen’s capitalized on a call against Waterloo with a threepoint penalty kick. The Warriors kept their charge going.but it was apparent that the loss of 10 veterans fromlast year’s team was one factor in Waterloo’s elimination at the semi-final level. Despite the Warriors last minute efforts, Queen’s scored one more try by running the ball up the side making the final score of the game 17-6. The large number of last year’s players who graduated combined with a team made up of mostly rookies was supposed to denote failure for the Warriors this season. Instead, the team was on top of the league for the most part of the season; this in itself is an accomplishment. The strong play of Veterans Jim Closs, Paul Toon, Tony Stea, Malcolm Gilchrist, Harold Godwin and Blair Falconer is credited for the first-place finish of the team in the regular season. But the newly aquired talents of rookies Hayden Belgrave, Paul Overbaugh and Mark Schneider were factors in the teams success this year as well. The OUAA finals are set for Saturday at McMaster. The Marauders are up against Queen’s for the championship title.

‘Victory eludes B-ball Warriors in Winnipeg -by Mike McG’raw Imprint staff An impressive string of plays by the Waterloo Warriors fell one basket shy of victory in a tournament last weekend at the University of Winnipeg. After handily defeating Laurentian and a team from Soeul, Korea, the Warriors were edged by the host team by a score of 107-106 in the championship game. _ Waterloo opened the round robin tournament with a convincing 83-62 victory over Laurentian. Rob Froece.) led the Warriors with 20 points, while Paul Boyce and John Bilawey added 16 each. In their second game,‘the Warriors trounced the inexperienced team from Soeul, 105-70. Every member of the Waterloo squad scored in the win, with Froece and John Sneider leading with 24 each while Boyce counted 19. The championship game was a close and thrilling match. In a game which saw Winnipeg’s ~Joey Vickery hit an astounding eight s-point field goals, the host team led by no more than seven points. The outcome was in doubt until the final buzzer with three lead changes in the final minute of play, and Waterloo missing on two last crack attempts with 22 and three seconds remaining. Boyce was Waterloo’s high scorer with 31 points, while Sneider added 30 and Froece contributed 20. Sneider was particuliarly effective in hitting on three of fifi s-point attempts during the game. Boyce was selected to the tournament all-star team. Coach Don McCrae stated that
“it was a good tournament for us.” He noted that both Winnipeg and Laurentian are 4-O in CIAU play, while the, Warriors had played just one exhibition game previous to the tournament. McCrae said that thel tournament was important for discovering if the team had a certain “fit” to it, and for finding out if the newer players could handle the action. He concluded that the tournament revealed “good news” about the Warrior squad. In commenting about the current prevalence of the newly installed s-point line, McCrae said, “no-one knows how to deal with it yet”, adding that teams don’t know whether or not to add it to their game plan at this early stage. Waterloo could very well meet up with Winnipeg,in the upcoming Naismith Classic, which begins here November 21. The draw finds the Warriors and the Win-
nipeg team positioned to play each other in the semi-finals should both teams win their first round matches. Winnipeg will play Ryerson in the first round, while the Warriors play crosstown rivals, Laurier, McCrae said that although the tournament draw attempts.to separate teams from the same conference, playing Laurier will be “good for the tournament”, due to the intense Waterloo-Laurier rivalry. In the other half of the Naismith draw, Toronto will play Windsor and Concordia will battle Laurentian. The Warriors will be in action this weekend at the University Of Guelph Tournament. The tournament features the participation of two teams from Michigan, Sienna Heights and St. Mary’s. Waterloo’ plays its first game against Ryerson tonight at 7 p.m.
Axemen triumph in Competitive Soccer by Pat Bown Men’s competitive soccer’ came to a close as the Axemen emerged as champions in last weekend’s league B playoffs. After getting off to a‘ slow start, the Axemen finished the regular season eighth overall of the 24 teams. Going into the playoffs, the team was quietly confident. In Saturday’s game, the Axemen edged the fourthplace Systems Strikers 1-O and advanced to the next round. On Sunday, reduced to only 10
players and having to contend with the elements, the team knocked off the first;place Boombaras and the third-place Legends in contests that were tied at the end of regulation time. Both had to be decided on penalty shots. As an encore, the Axemen have challenged the first-place Unreals of league A to an exhibition game. This would determine the unofficial overall champions of the men’s competitive soccer. \

Oldtimersi ruffle feathers to . capture first place in.,biball . The second to last week of regular season play finds women’s basketball still in a competetive
state. The match between the first and second place teams in A division testifies to this fact.
Men’s Soccer by Paul Fisher In League A of men’s soccer, the Unreals dominated the season play. As a result, they are heavy favourites to capture the playoff championship as a complement to their league championship. On their way to the league crown they did not concede a single goal in six games. The Seminoles have their work cut out for them in the A league playoffs. They finished the sea-
son without a point and are big underdogs for the playoffs despite showing improvement late in the season. The B league was considerably closer race tha.n the A league. The Boombaras edged out the Legends and Mission Imposcivil by one point to capture the first place position. The playoffs for both leagues should be exciting with several teams competing for the prized first spot positions.

Athlete of the Week Mike Bishop Hockey It did not take long for Mike Bishop to make himself felt in Ontario university hockey. The first-year Science student from Elmira has played in goal for all four of the Warriors league games this season and.is one of the main reasons the team is undefeated at this point of the season. (3 wins and a tie) This past weekend Mike had two great performances as he stopped 26 of 27 shots in an 11-l victory over RMC and then he stopped all 30 shots that Western peppered him with as the teams played to a scoreless draw. Mike has a very impressive hockey background. He played Maj.Jr.A hockey in London, Kitchener, and Bellville. In 1984 he was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers
The Waterloo Warriors have qualified for the CIAU CrossCountry Championships. At last Saturdays’s OUAA Championships in Kingston, the men placed second to the University of Ottawa.Both teams, by placing in the top two, earned the right to compete in the national university championships, to be run in London tomorrow. Earlier in the day, the Athenas finished fifth in the OWIAA championship race. For the Warriors, teamwork was the name of the game. Harvey Mitro and Kevin Shields helped each other in finishing ninth and 12th, and Tim Rose -and Nick Cipp worked together to take 17th and 21st. The most disappointed team member was Andy Krucker who managed to all the way from around 18th to fourth place before fading to 16th. An outstanding race by normal standards, but a big letdown for the competitive Krucker who had hoped to challenge winner John Halvorsen of Ottawa. This being the first time that any of the Warriors have qualified for the cross-country championships, they were ’ understandably excited. Perhaps even more so were assistant coaches Don Mills and Chris Lane. The normally sedate pair saw a training regimen they jointly planned and oversaw, emphasizing speed-endurance and late-race strength, pay-offin a CIAU berth. This is Waterloo’s first appearance at the CIAU’s since 1969. The result was a vindication of Waterloo’s approach to running, which stresses teamwork,
Warriors and race-day perfordepth, mance. Perhaps the best indicator of this is the performances of the non-scoring sixth and seventh men. Waterloo scored 69 points, the sum of their top five individuals’ placings. The ‘juggernaut’ Ottawa team won handily, as they swept the medals their fifth man beat Waterloo’s first and they scored 20 points. Yet Tim Collins, 28th, and Chris Rogers in 82nd easily placed ahead of top-ranked Ottaw 3’s sixth man. Western, who went into the meet ranked one spot ahead of the No. 3 Warriors, simply could not match Waterloo’s depth and placed a distant for all seven third. Indeed, runners to pack between ninth and 82nd in a field of more than 80 runners is indicative of their overall strength. Coach Mills was reminded of the Canadian junior men’s team, a tough, hardworking lot he coached sat the 1978 World Championships. That team was also second,. missing upsetting England .by one point. The Athenas, meanwhile, had a mixed race at the championships. Jill Francis and Ulrike Zugelder, running well together, were 15th and 16th, and Kelly Boulding was close behind with and excellent 22nd. Maggie Stewart, 84th, and Cathy Bauer, 49th, were the other scorers, and Kilmeny Beimler and Marielle Rowan were 55th and 56th. May Alizadeh of Western won the race, while Toronto took the -team title. Head Coach Any Heal pleased with the women’s formance: “We had a solid
