Youth vote a big factor at rn,eeting to review Turner by Carol Fletcher Imprint staff The fat lady finally sang and she sang in favour of John Turner. The “love-in” in Ottawa last weekend, I Nov. 27-30 at the Congress Centre, ended with overwhelming support for Turner as 77 per cent of the Liberal delegates voted, to maintain him ’ as leader of the party. Of a possible 2626 ballots cast, 2001 delegates turned in “yes” votes. Only three ballots were spoiled.

WATERLOO (CUP) - More than s880,OOO of the Wilfrid Laurier University faculty association’s pension fund is invested in companies with holdings in South Africa, faculty recently learned. The response was swift. They immediately voted to divest at a Nov. 12 meeting. The motion called on trustees to divest of $252,000 in Searams Ltd., $188,000 in Rothmans, ! 183,000 in Cominco Ltd., and $157,000 in General Electric. In addition, faculty passed a motion to initiate discussion with the student union with a view to jointly participating in more “concrete action”, said association president Paul Albright. Student union president Brian Thompson said he would welcome any initiative from faculty. Political Science professor John Redekop suggests funding scholar. ships for black South African students, tenable at Laurier. Albright said faculty were led to advocate div. estment by their consciences.
“Whether this will speed the process of dismantling apartheid is where honest men can differ,” he said. Sociology and anthropology pro. fessor Andrew Lyons said there is a “lack of awareness here about South Africa.” Lyons, who is active in the antiapartheid movement, noted Laurier offers only one course on Africa. “It’s only offered every couple of years, and until recently had very low enrollment,” Lyons said. Albright stressed discussion of the issue focussed on what additional actions the association might take other than a “showy display for the public eye.” Lyons said he was pleased by the divestment, but added it is only part of “a vast public process.” Albright cautioned however that the resolution may not necessarily be binding on the trustees who administer the fund. The university’s Board of Governors must also ratify the faculty motion in order for it to be car. ried out.

dragging feet on forum says CFS
OTTAWA (CUP) - Planning for the federal government’s national forum on post-secondary education is dragging, say two educational lobby groups. In its Oct. 1 Speech from the Throne, the Mulroney government pledged to hold the forum “earfy next year”.
David Crombie, whose office is orgaGzing the forum, has yet to an-
nounce further details. Both the Canadian Association of .University Teachers and the Canadian Federation of Students are concerned about perceived government delays.
“Right now, it’s in a. very vaguestage,” said CFS executive officer Todd Smith. “They don’t know what the format is, [so] there isn’t much to say.”
CFS and CAUT representatives have met withsecretary of state officials, but have yet to meet with Crombie. CFS, CAUT and other education groups have been told, however, they will be allowed to participate in setting the forum’s agenda. CAUT executive secretary Ron Levesque said even though planning “is proceeding very, very slowly”, government should strike a realistic
agenda as soon as possible. “We would like them to view the forum as the lead-up to a series of negotiations between the two levels of government. We are very concerned that-they negotiate seriously,” said Levesque, referring to meetings next year about federal transfer payments to the provinces, earmarked for health and education through Established Programs Financing.
“Our advice is to first avoid irrelevant arguments about whose money it is, and take a look at the real issues,” said Levesque. Both CAUT and CFS are calling for more money for base funding, research, equipment and student assistance. Jean Fornier, under-secretary of state, said details of the forum will not be released until Crombie has concluded consultation with interested groups. “Mr. Crombie has begun meeting with provincial colleagues, and he will want to meet in the coming weeks with others to get. input before announcing the agenda, date and place (of the forum),” Fomier said. I He said an expected date of an announcement depends “on the speed and nature of the meetings” with other groups. However, CFS’s Smith said a wellprepared forum is far better than one organized in haste. ‘We feel that it’s worth taking the time that it deserves,” he said.

COMMENT Gays dbseivk equal I rights
hmprint, Friday, December
‘by Marie Sedivy lmprlrit staff
I have always wanted to think of university as a place where open,mindedness and tolerance is learned. Unfortunately, if I am to judge by ‘recent events on campus, the University of Waterloo is not such a place. On Friday night, flyers stating: “Stop.AIDS. Don’t be gay.” were distributed througtiout the Campus Centre and Village 1. There was also a rather crude diagram of what was meant to be two men engaged in anal sex. Granted, we do live in a country allowing for freedom of the press and freedom of expression, but a freedom ceases to be a right if it ignores the freedom and rights of others. These flyers amount to hate literature for they create and build animosity toward a minority group in our society. I might also mention that the distribution of hate literature is illegal under Canadian law. Moreover, the flyers are factually incorrect; AIDS did not develop as a result of homosexuality. \ Whoever distributed these flyers is ignoring one important fact; homosexuals are people too. Whether one condones homosexuality is not the issue here; you have a right to feel as you do, but you have-no right to discriminate against’any group of humans. A friend of mine brought the incident to my attention on Saturday afternoon. I can still see the pain on his face. It was almost as though he was asking: “Why would anyone do something like this? Why do people do these things? What have I done to them?” The answer is that he has done nothing. He has probably done less to deserve hate literature than many other men I know; he just happens to be attracted to members of the same sex the same way many others happen to be attracted to members of the opposite sex. I happen not to be gay. I also happen not to be male. And I happen not to have blue eyes or blond hair. But does that make me any b’etter or worse a person than somebody who was born with blue eyes or some-body who was born male? I don’t think so. The point is that sexual orientation is not a matter of choice, just as sex or eye colour isn’t. With such lack of tolerance and intense animosity toward minority groups on campus, I wonder what the next step will be. Posters saying “Stop pregnancy. Don’t be female”?

So who is this Jesus anyway? by Doug Thompson Imprint staff - From the “‘somebody than I*’ department
It’s Christmas holidays now, and the news will put to rest for a month. Staff strains to create humourous comment on this reality. we jointly experience which goes beyond the matter of fact. (with which we are all altogether bored well before the exams start). Howeverlaughter is not my mood this heck, though its season will come in due course. But two comments by two people who were once students struck me as compelling and important. I’d like to share them with you. I overheard a conversation between three university students and an older gentleman in a bus station many of us know well. The students were talking about Christmas. “What do we bother with this for, anyway?” queried one. “Well, it’s Jesus’ birthday” answered another. “What’s Jesus guy ever done for me?” asked the third quite loudly.
not for Jesu’s not only would your lives be much I nastier, more brutish and shorter, there would be precious little hope for the possibility of anything better ever coming. “Jesus taught the hur&n race how to hope, and by convincing half the world there was something ’ to hope for, he has been the single most important inspiration of the last two thousand years, the inspiration behind this culture which values human dignity, and grants you and everyone else protection under law, welfare if you cannot provide jar yourself, medical care withbut going into debt, education for all, and a th_ousand other benefits you take for granted, benefits won through great struggles in the past by men and women who were Christians, and who fought against human avarice and greed, not because there was anything in it for them, but because it was right, and it was a work of love. And their love for God and other people, a love they learned from Jesus inspired and empowered them ‘to do it. “All this is what Jesus, and those millions of his followers who put love and self-sacrifice before ‘their own greedy jealousy, have done for you. The old man looked distressed, the young ones gazed in wonder at this outpouring. He continued, “you are university students and ‘they have not taught you this? What do they teach you up there anyway?” You could have heard a pin drop when he finished. Several dozen pairs of eyes looked intently at him. The clerk behind the wicket’rested his elbows on the counter, head slightly cocked, eyesset on the aId man. The silence lingered, broken finally by .the old man’s own shuffle as he returned to his seat. The three sttidents turned and looked at each other. The expression on the face of the one I could see clearly uncomfortable. He frowned at the , looked distinctly pack on his knees. “Shit!” he said with a note of embarrassment, “I never thought about it that way.” He stood, and walked over to where the old man had sat down, quite oblivious to the dozens of watching, curious eyes. He paused before the rather crumpled looking figure in front of him. “Where did you learn all that?” he asked. “At school, mostly” the old gent replied in an almost apologetic voice. “Back then we were still backward enough to think that elementary. things were important.”
The elderly gent a few seats away looked at the young man and interjected loudly, “you claim to be educated and you don’t know the answer to that?!” “Don’t you know”, he continued in a tone of voice that was a cross between vehemence and outrage, “that if it were not for the influence, of Jesus very little of what you value as individual freedoms, and civil rights would ever have been thought of, let alone held to be supreme virtues of society?” He rose and stood in frqnt of them, beginning to look the part of a of an Old Testament prophet. The I three young men gazed in wonder. “Don’t you know;” he went on, “that the very notion of equal rights for all men and women is a Christian notion? If it were not for Jesus and people who believed in him, do you imagine slavery would ever have been abolished in the British Empire, or the United States? “Look at the contemptuous attitude of the ancients toward human life, and how in Christian countries, and pretty weI140nly Christian countries has the idea that life is sacred ever been able to marshal enough support to seriously challenge innate human avarice, greed and the desire to oppress the weak.” The old man was becoming.passionate, and the . . * . and this other thought, from a friend eyes of the entire crowd in the bus station were upon him now. ’ Techna coloured neon snow “Jesus was not the first in the ancient world to Reflecting suggestive promises from stand up for the powerless against the cruelties of Well dressed windows the mighty -\ but he was the first to link justice to Crying hungrily for consumer cash. love instead of law which means he was the first to teach the human race a road to virtue, morality, Buses belching rumpled passengers integrity, faith and hope that was attainable.

Are students just eaiy marks?
It is apparent to me; from the obvious lack of critical response, that the administration and the students of UW have successfully ignored the expose of John Hotson and the Hunger, Project by the
Imprint. As a member of “Prof” Hotson’s Economics 102 class I am confused by the apathy exhibited toward this situation. I also find myself asking: “Isn’t there anyone who comprehends this situation for what it is?” I do not feel that I need to comment on The Hunger Project because the Imprint has done a marvelous job of showing us the real Hunger Project as a selfpropagating, pyramid-style pseudo-charity. God knows that I could, from my experiences inside
conveniently and outside class, add my two cents about the Hunger Project and its underhanded methods and questionable legitimacy. ,I do feel, however, that from his comments in the classes, Hotson doesn’t understand the objet-, tions to his cause. There isn’t a soul around, Mr. Hotson, that doesn’t want to see World Hunger ended. The objections are toward the Hunger Project’s legitimacy as a charity and more importantly, the teaching of Hunger Project methods in economics classes. The real point of this letter is: can a prof abuse his authority for his own purposes and get away ‘with it? Hotson professes that World Hunger is a macro-economic issue. Arguably, this is true, but as a student in the class I can assure that this issue is not
within the context of Economics 102. For five years he has subjected his students to’ his “lectures” and moral influence. Five years of locking a captive audience in a room to listen to this garbage, and be responsible for it, and be solicited for donations. Am I to believe that the university condones this sort of behaviour? I suppose that at UW it is status quo to find a Calculus prof selling AMWAY products to his students *in class. What am I to expect next? A Psych prof preaching the second coming of Jehovah? Even if the prof used his position to make his students aware of UNICEF,
CARE, the Canadian Cancer Society or any legitimate cause, the prof would still be abusing his position. The prof would be violating a contract between s/he and the student that states the prof should teach a subject to this student. Is the student paying to learn about a subject or is the student paying to be solicited and have his/her morality questioned by our professors when s/he does not contribute to the prof’s cause? I can only ask again whether this is condoned by our administration? Are students just easy marks for entrepreneurial professors looking to further their cause
In last week’s Imprint, Doug Thompson gave his analysis of the Science for Peace sponsored “East-West Summitry”. Though it -was very insightful, Thompson I think, did make certain errors. He implies the Soviet stance of eliminating all nuclear weapons is perhaps the only hope toward peace. Now, as he admits this may be somewhat unrealistic but nevertheless “?%he world could survive a dozen nuclear bombs. It cannot survive 50,000”. Very true, Mr. Thompson, but also very dangerous:Firstly, no side is realistically going to disarm their nuclear arsenal as long as the “trust” is not there. Forty years of war strategy cannot be wiped out: by one agreement. Secondly, I wouldn’t want a nuclear weapons free world - not right now. Imagine a world where each side has half a dozen ICBM’s each. Tension develops between the two sides regarding, let us say, the Middle East. Each side decides to attack the other using conventional weapons. No one has to worry about complete annihilation because the fear of radiation is not present. The result, I think, would be much like WW II - long, devastating, but fought many different fronts. on Granted, not as many would die as would during a nuclear war but the destruction would still be unimaginable. Nuclear weapons inflict terror. Though I hate to admit it, I think MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) has prevented war. But without MAD, WVV !ll would perhaps
become winnable, and thusfeasible. I agree we don’t nearly need as many weapons as we have. Blowing up the world once is more than enough. And yes, we need trust. But not trust in either superpower. We have to transcend the governments of the superpowers and build trust between the ,oeoole. One of the, . ways of doing this is through independent peace groups in the

or their bank account balance? If this is not the case then why is! nothing being done? If Hotson is indicative of the status quo expected by the administration then all UW profs should be self-serving, power abusing people whose credibility as a teacher is to be questioned. Let’s do something about this.
I suppose it’s somewhat nosey of me to write in response to Bruce Mclver’s letter (Imprint, Nov. 28) since it was really addressed to the Rev. Dr. Tom York, but I’m going to anyway because I want to get my two bits worth. Bruce stated that he is “very disturbed” which he then proceeded to prove to me through his apparent intense study of the the Bible, but total lack of ability to relate to society in general. A person who walks around with his mind closed to the world, but who is very familiar with the Bible (or any other book for the matter) is worthless, in my mind. I feel that books are very useful in helping us to better understand our world, but one stand to learn much more from experiences and interactions with other people if one keeps an open mind. Bruce objects to the fact the reverend was able to learn some-1
as crackpot ideas, mature to become movements and are finally integrated into the fabric of popular social conscience. While it is not pleasant to think about world hunger, we should resist the temptation to execute the messenger. It takes courage to make a stand on an issue like this as is evident from the recent coverage of the Hunger Project in the Imprint. Let’s hope that someday widespread hunger will seem as anachronistic to us as apartheid does today. In the meantime I feel we should give the Hunger Project a fair hearing. The problem of world hunger cannot be ignored indefinitely.

Bruce’s prejudice (and that of many Christians) toward others such as witches and non-believ: ers who are not glorified in the B.ible is frankly very sickening. Besides this he is not even interpreting the Bible very well. I’m sure one of the 10 Commandments states that “Thou shalt, love thy neighbour as thyself”. The Bible also discourages the judging of other people, yet Bruce and many other Christians are judging people they haven’t even met. If Bruce and other Christians continue to show prejudice toward others and refuse to see the good in people regardless of their religion, they won’t have my sympathy when they are crucified or thrown to the lions.

Tq the e&or,
by Cam Wright WPIRG staff Although the relationship between cancer land asbestos exposure was well documented by the 195Os, asbestos continued to be used indiscriminately in many workplaces until the 1980s when firms like Johns-Mansville and Bendix abandoned plants in Canada due to mounting law suits and compensation cases. Despite continuous warnings and incentive programs aimed at cleaning up pulp and paper operations, Reed Paper continued to dump mercury and _ other contaminants into the English Wabigoo river ’ system. The end result was large scale mercury poisoning.‘among local native Indian bands and their environment. Subsequently Reed sold its interests’ in Northern Ontario. The two largest point sources of sulphur dioxide emissions in Canada, lnco in Sudbury and Noranda in Quebec, have avoided public pressure to clean up SO2 emissions and modernize smelter operations. On more than one occasion they have threatened to close down operations if they were forced into costly control programs. For example, in May 1984, the president of Noranda stated that the operation “could find itself caught between the politically unacceptable choice of closing a smelter that employs . 1,200 people or investing in modernization equipment to control SO2 emissions”. At the same time Noranda decided to borrow $90 million to pay dividends to its shareholders. These are just three examples of a phenomenon whereby workers and community residents are forced to make a choice between protecting their jobs and protecting the environment. The phenomenon was recently examined in more detail at a conference organized by the Ontario Environment Network entitled “Preserving Both Jobs and the Environment”. Conference participants included a good mix of labour, environmentalists and academics. Sectors examined included energy, forestry, tourism, waste management and occupational health and safety. The objective was to form a working relationship between workers and environmentalists on this issue. In its ultimate form the trade off between jobs and the environment may lead to a plant closure.’ Although workers suffer the imm-ediate consequences with increased social upheaval (suicides, child beating, depression, unemployment, etc.) the whole community suffers when a plant closes. White collar workers also lose their jobs. Municipal governments lose millions of dollars in tax revenues while at the same time paying out more in social programs and local businesses lose customers. Two factors make Canada very susceptible to the jobs-environment argument and closures:
1) the large presence of foreign based businesses and 2) the large number of single industry towns. Although there was a great deal of discussion over the three days of the conference, three of the most important points were presented by political economist Ted Schrecker. According to Schrecker: 1) The public is still bearing the externalized costs of industrial products “buying back” environmental quality via subsidies for pollution abatement. For example, lnco is eligible for large subsidies from both federal and provincial governments to enable them to modernize their smelter and cut SO2 emissions. In essence, the Canadian public is being asked to buy back environmental quality in the form of a modernized smelter. 2)As a 1983 study by the Ontario ministry of the environment observed, from the point of view of large polluters, “compliance costs” usually far exceed “non compliance costs”. Occasional prosecution may be more economically attractive than costly clean-up. 3) In many industries process modification which reduces pollution emissions also reduces production costs. This saving is not necessarily paid for under corporate criterion of minimum rate of return on new capital investment but comes in environmental dividends and extension of useful competitive life of existing industrial facilities. We certainly have a long way to go in working out financial schemes to share more equitably the costs and benefits of pollution control equipment, making it less economically attractive to pollute, and in promoting pollution control sector as a positive industry where many jobs can be created and savings made by companies. However, there are positive trends developing. The Ontario ministry of the environment has sent out clear indicators that indiscriminate pollution is not acceptable and repeat offenders will face criminal prosecution and fines. Labour unions like to Canadian Auto Workers are playing a more active role in both workplace and environmental protection. The Chemical Manufacturers Association believes that over 70 per cent of hazardous liquid wastes can be reduced, reused, or recycled through existing technologies. Canada is establishing itself as a reputable entity in the design, manufacture, and sale of pollution control equipment. And a further 100,000 jobs could be created in this sector in the future. One of the highlights of the conference was the agreement between workers and environmentalists to push for legislation giving workers (including both white and blue collar) the “Right to Refuse to Pollute”. Since the workplace is the front end for many would be pollutants, it is a logical place for both the community and workers to apply pressure to alleviate pollution at its source.
Sight of Rick Hansen made all the trouble very, worth while J
To the editor, I had the thrill of a lifetime this week - I got to see Rick Hansen face-to-face. Four weeks ago I was asked if I would like to help promote Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion World Tour as events co-ordinator for UW’s residences. I was ecstatic at the idea since I’ve been keeping track of Rick Hansen as best as
possible. I felt drawn to him and his cause. Three years ago, my best friend and I were in a toboggan accident and, just like Rick and his friend, one of us was hurt badly while the other was thrown clear. I was the lucky one, I walked away from the <accident, but my best friend spent the next two months in the hospital and the i’ollowing six months recovering at home. These is a happy ending to
this story. My friend’s two lower vertabrae were crushed and she could have been paralyzed for the rest of her life. I say could have been, if it weren’t for people like Rick Hansen who have raised awareness of the potential of the disabled and who have raised funds for spinal cord research. Today my best friend, Linda, is walking thanks to such research. When I was asked to take on the task at the villages, I didn’t know if I could do it. But the villages have shown tremendous support for Rick Hansen and have,. raised about $2,000. I would like to thank all those volunteers from the villages who gave up their time to support a great causeand I would like to thank all those villagers who supported the cause by giving their last dollars, literally, to spinal cord research. When I saw Rick fact-to-face last Monday, I knew all the time and trouble had been worth it.

Most gays and lesbians are people you do not know because their naturalness, humanity and appearances meld into the fabric \ of society. Get to know them, Jim, th.ey won’t bite. Most won’t even fit your stereotype. If gays and lesbians are any more unhappy and unfulfilled than other people, then why were/are Michelan_ gelo, Tchaikowsky, T.S. El’iot and host of politicians, doctors, mounties, students, clergy, athletes, garage mechanics, etc. so happy and fulfilled as gays. Think, Jim. I being gay half as obscene as poverty, racism, nuclear annihilation, excessive violence, rejection? The God whom I ’ know and love declared His love for all people and His mandate, made known in Jesus, is ours too. You see, Jim, gays are people too and the best way you and I can help Jesus in this broken world is to help Him break down the barriers which exist and separate, divide and ghettoize people.
Jim Mullen’s recent letter (Im.print, Nov. 14) concludes with an invitation to “Chris” and other ‘gays’ to find happiness and more in the Church. What pious claptrap. How unreal in most churches. While true theologically, the realistic truth is if any known or suspected gays and lesbians are members of a church, they are rejected, diagnosed or squeezed put. If they weren’t, then why is there a Metropolitan Community Church in North America for gays and lesbians? Gratefully, I do know of some Anglican parishes (and this may be true of other traditions also) where gays and lesbians are very much part of the believing, responsible, committed life of the Church without any strings attached. That is as it should be - if the Church is catholic (as we claim to be), then the Church is for all people, for all time, in the whole life, no matter who they are. God’s love is unconditional. Often that is not true of the Church, regrettably.

I have not been to Fed Hall recently, nor to the Eng. - Kin. pub you mentioned, but I have found excessively loud music in most other bars and clubs, especially those catering to the younger crowd. I have complained to the staff at
Let’s talk about. . Christmas byTom York /
This is the season of the year when God sends us a letter, a letter that comes to us in a world in which God is forgotten much of the time.and our possessions threaten to overwhelm us: The letter begins, “In those days a decree went forth from Caesar Augustus . . .” It goes on to talk of taxes and tyrants, of heartbreak and hope, of birth and death, of a dusty road and a shining star, and God with us.” at last it is signed, “Emmanue!, We read it in our Bibles at home and hear it read at church, or we hear it sung in Christmas carolls on the radio, and life begins to assume the shape of sanity and takes on contours of meaning that it did not have before. And as we hear God’s message, we wonder if we do not spend too much time in the far country where artificial light glitters so brightly that we cannot see the Christmas star. And maybe we begin to think that home is where those stars once shone, those shepherds knelt, and that woman wept with joy. But, we know better, don’t we? Christmas is a fit of madness which comes over us for a brief season when the days are short and the nights are long and cold. A brief time-out from wrestling with books and boyfriends or girlfriends, from preparing ourselvesto be a wage-earner and recovering from being a child. Still, there is another.way to look at it. The times when the days are the days of madness. are long and we forget about God -those When we go our own selfish way, following our own whims-those are our periods of insanity. Christmas is the time when we most become who we are meant to be. True sanity is when we stop scrambling, and stop for a moment to look at stars and listen for angels voices, when we believe in God. And we are mad, truly mad, when we scorn love or take loved ones for granted, work like a dog, follow wandering fires, and give God no thought at all. Mad! we come clean and sane w’hen for a few brief days we are lifted above our self-centeredness. So we do not really go mad at Christmas, we go sane! And God’s letter calls us home where we belong. Mary and Joseph went home to Bethlehem to celebrate the first Christmas. They didn’t know it was the first Christmas, but they went. They encountered on the road to Bethlehem and at the inn when they got there the first Christmas rush. So too the shepherds, in the,midst of dangers, and the wise men - in spite of difficulties, came to worship the from “nearby” and “faraway” - to Bethlehem Christ child. As we go through the madness of Christmas this season, giving and receiving presents and all the rest of it, may we not neglect to respond to God’s letter - may we not forget to worship. And may we regain our sanity, if only for a moment. Peace,

No empty Bragg by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff “Listen, mate, I’m a folksinger. If you want to dance go listen to Bon, Jovi or something. You’re supposed to look at me longingly like I’m The Cot teau Twins .” Thus went Lesson number 1 of the Billy Bragg I How-To-HandleHecklers-Who-Only-Want-To-Slam course at Fed Hall last Saturday, the final installment in a series of fine BEnt presentations this month (yes, we mean it), setting the tone for an evening aof wit, politics, and love that’s gone the route of milk left out on the counter for a week. Everyone’s favourite milkman of human kindness left an extra pint for the capacity-plus adoring audience with a cozy run through three albums and four EP’s that have made him the love child of the critical hordes and anyone else who takes political correctness seriously. He played about 15 songs, all gems familiar to the Bragg devotee except the opening cover of the Buzzcocks’ Ever Fallen In Love and a warm readink of the Sam Cooke classic, A Change IS Gonna Come., and the live versions of his own
songs were faithful to the recorded work, albeit without the sometimes gorgeous embellishments of Dave W.oodhead’s trumpet and Johnny Marr’s lead guitar. But this was hardly one’ of those concerts that could be substituted for by playing the records loudly. The songs were only part of the show, at times seemingly incidental to the between-songs banter with the audience. The man must know he’s a major star - the crowd, which was& monochromatically clad in black for a change, responded ecstatically to the introduction of every song and with something approaching reverence during the dying final chords - but onstage he carries on like you’re having a chat over a beer with him in his mum’s, kitchen. His. confident stage manner tells less of the size of his ego than his ease and comfortable friendliness with his audience. Just as he never talks down to his audience, unless he’s responding to some dumb heckler who really deserves it, his politics were the focus of his talk/without becoming an offputting raison d’etre. Unlike his fellow left-wing agit-prop counterparts, The Redskins, Billy’s
Greetings by Paul Done Imprint Staff
Before Billy Bragg took on the Fed Hall crowd we had a chance to confront the Bard of Barking on his songwriting, the Soviet Union and brothels (amongst other things). Read on, there’s something for everyone: I: Here’s a copy of our review of “Greetings to The New Brunette”. BB: Yeah. I got that review yesterday from the record company. I read it that bit about Back to The Old House and I thought “aww, fuck, that’s far too close to home. When we were doing The Red Wedge tour, me and Johnny Marr were doing a duet. We were doing A Lover Sings, The Last Time by The Rolling Stones and Buck to The Old House. He played the guitar-and I’d sing. We’ve got a cassette of those songs that we recorded on my Portastudio in my house, in my kitchen. I’ll have to have another crack at the vocals, though. They’re flat as pancakes. I: You’ve got to send us a copy of that. BB: (smirking) Hmmm . . . I’m sure it’ll surface eventually. 1: Are you thinking of putting it out ever? BB: (shakes his head) I: TQO bad. The Smiths don’t do it anymore. BB: Yeah, it’s terrible innit? A terrible shame.‘. . . great song. I: But, they wouldn’t be a rock band if they didn’t have a song that they didn’t play anymore. BB: You’re right there. 1. mean they used to have such a great tradition of B-Sides. Their B-Sides used to outshine everything else they did. I: What do you think 9 their
concern is the good of his fellow man (and he ain’t even a hippie), not putting ideology on a pedestal to worship and kill for. With a self-deprecating sense of humour, joking about Red Wedge crony Paul Weller’s hair and jabbing his own habit of writing let’s-change-theworld songs in the ribs, he never let his impassioned pleas to the audience to become active in social and pojitical reform become preachy or self-righteous. Through what must have been a Herculean effort of the will, he even resisted taking the cue from people shouting “Red Wedge” to launch into a vitriolic pro-Labour Party tirade, contenting himself and appeasing that part of the audience which was looking forward to something more like the Nuremburg Rally with a short cataloguing of the evils of the Thatcher government and a proud declaration of his membership in the Labour Party. A 70 minute set and two encores and the lights came on all too early. Sounds hokey, I know, but it was like saying goodbye to a. friend and we all adjourned to our seats talking about nice, funny man Billy Bragg and wouldn’t we all like to see him come back soon.

What was it like on tour?
BB: Oh, that. Obviously, incredibly different. The form of the gigs was very different. I had a translator on stage, talking about what was being said between the songs. IT: Like
BB: Nonononono, I’d say something and he’d translate it . . . between the songs. And the audiences were very polite and they’d give you questions during the gig. They’d write them down on bits of paper and then pass them up to the translator, who’d ask you, off mike, if you wanted to answer a particular question.. I: What like?
BB: The first one I had was “did I think the Soviet Union was a free country? and what did I think of the Chernobyl disaster?” I:... in 10 words or less. , BB: Off the top of my head, I said that I’d only been in the Soviet Union for 24 hours but that I didn’t think that Great Britain was a free country either.

I’ve got a picture of me in Red Square with this little, round, fat Russian geezer. We were having our photo taken and he walked by, laughing at me ‘cause I was wearing this big coat. So, I beckoned him to come over and put his arm around me. So he put his shopping down and came over and had his picture taken 2 laughing like mad. He was a really nice fella - couldn’t speak a word of English and I didn’t know any Russian. I: We’ve to release

Theatre of the Arts. An audience has gathered to watch the Creative Arts Board’s production of Mousetrap. There is a general hum in the theatre. The action focuses on Lourdes, Marietta, Harlon and Kathryn. They are four strangers brought together by fate. Harlon: It’s a very enjoyable play. It’s not profound of deep or anything. Lourdes: Kind of like you. Harlon: It’s just kind of safe and fun. How good it is depends on the acting.
BB: Exactly like that. It’s a very slow process but, we’re working on it.
BB: And that’s gotta be approved by committees after committees after committees. It’s as if Brian Mul-
a big difference Germany and,
BB: Yeah, definitely. East Germany is culturally and economically a lot more Western. Very close to the rest of Europe since they can see West .German TV and hear West German radio - so they can hear, like, John Peel’s independent music show on British Armed Forces Radio and know who’s number 1 on the British Independent charts and all that shit. When you talk about the Soviet Union, you have to remember that, geographically, it’s just a fucking long way away. The nearest city of 1 million people to ‘Kiev is 900 miles away . . . and that’s all fir trees. I: Sounds
BB: Sort of, except none of them have cars that will do the journey. The musicians there just don’t get our culture fast enough to have any sort of scene with as quick a turnover as ours has - where trends come and go in a matter of 2 or 3 years. They’re still accepting and looking at the things we passed in the late 60s and early 70s - the heavyweight stuff.
I: Is there anything really strange or obscure that we disregarded that they’re really into.
BB: Well, they’re very interested in some of the avant-garde jazzrockers from Great Britain like Chris Cutler, who was in Henry Cow. Henry Cow were quite big with the guys we were talking to. They thought that because I was from England, that I must know Chris Cutler. Someone gave me an Airline Captain’s cap at ,a gig and asked me to give it to Midge Ure. Fortunately, Midge lives about 2 miles from me and I’d got his phone number from when1 was trying to get him in Red Wedge. Funnily enough, Ultravox had just come back from Poland, so when I phoned him up and told him, he was quite interested. I went around to his place and dropped it off, so, who knows what will happen now . . . One of the reasons that they’re so stuck in musical trends is that they’re mu ‘imiliterary - they want to x1 k at the lyrics. We’re not talking about Rambo and John Huston and fucking Batman here, we’re talking about Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Solzynitzen. If you’ve ever seen any of their movies . . . Solaris for example - they’re sooo slow. Just detail upon detail. They come from a literary tradition and their songs are just fucking crammed with words. I: So have you sian pop bands?
I’ve been to Japan
Marietta: Just don’t tell me who did it. Kathryn: Look there’s Helen, the Econ Prof. Everyone turns toward Helen; seated in front of them. Kathryn: Don’t make it so obvious. Hmm . . . I wonder if she’s wearing those ‘cute white rubber boots. Lourdes remains silent; a little confused. One suspects that Kathryn has ulterior motives for being here this evening. In her purse there is concealed a microfilm; or is it just a cleverly disguised tampon. The lights dim. The play within a play has begun. Cath Moore enters the stage. She plays the role of Mollie Ralston; owner of a guest house. Marietta: She looks like Carol Burnett. Harlon laughs. Man Seated Behind Them: Shhhhhhhhh! Harlon begins taking notes; She’s very good. Calm, convincing, natural on stage. He thinks to himself-I really should find some better adjectives. Marietta: She did it. Did she do it? Don’t tell me who did it!
Giles Ralston, Mollie’s husband enters. He is played by -_ Chuck Peeren. Harlon takes more notes; I wonder is his character supposed to be such a jerk, or is he that bad of an actor. - Kathryn: Don’t put that, that’s mean. Christopher Wren (would-be-architect or is he?) enters the stage. He is the first of five guests to arrive for the weekend. Lourdes: He is so cute. Marietta: He is so good. . Harlon takes notes; he is very good. Eccentric, childish. He definitely steals the scenes. Breathes some life into the production. Mrs. Boyle enters; she is played by Darlene Spencer. Marietta: She looks like Ruth Buzzie. Harlon laughs. Man Seated Behind Them: Shhhhhhhhhhhh! Kathryn: Be quiet you silly warthog! Harlon takes notes; she looks and acts the part of the prune-like spinster. Next John Watson enters. He is Major Metcalf.
BB: Yeah, I saw them play a gig while I was there. They were playing a baseball stadium with Go West and Culture Club were top of the bill. It was at the tail end of ‘a typhoon with all this fucking torrential rain and these Japanese kids were sitting there in their rain mats (coats). The Style Council were all on stage with their shorts’and Fred Perry’s and all the gear . . . and they had plastic, see-through rain mats on top! Me and the roadie were standing at the side of the stage - this was in the afternoon and I had a gig in the evening, so I stopped in to say hi and the junction box, where all the power goes in, had a plastic sheet over top of it and the plastic sheet was filling up with water. I was sitting there thinking “oh my god!” and thinking that any minute there was ’ gonna be a big, blue flash and everyone was gonna fry! It’s funny, we were miles from anywhere . . . in the charmingly-named Fukuoka - which you’ll have to look up on a map of Japan, it’s on the bottom island. And we’re walking around Fukuoka - me and this Japanese guy who was looking after me and my friend’s wife - in the distance I see these two geezers walking towards us in shorts - the first Caucasians that 15e seen in weeks. As they get closer and closer, it’s undoubtedly - :by the way that they’re walking - that they could only be Londoners. No one else would walk like that in a foreign country! When I got* cl,ose up, it was Steve, the drummer and Steve, the bongo player from The Style Council. They looked at me and said “what the fucking hell are you doing here?” - I said “never mind that. What are you doing here??” continued

Kathryn: He was in FASS. He’s a good singer. Too bad this isn’t a musical. He’s good! Miss Casewell, played by Alexander Martin enters. Marietta: She did it! Harlon takes notes; she creates suspicion as her character should. Finally, the last guest arrives; Mr. Paravicini enters. lc Marietta: Did he say his name was Mr. Feticinni? Kathryn: That’s Geoffrey. I know him. He’s really good. You have to say that anyway. I know him. Harlon: Actually, he is very good. He also injects some humour and new life into the play. Finally, the murder occurs. There is a scream. Marietta jumps. Intermisssion.
There will be a ten minute break. Marietta: This is so good. Harlon: Yeah, it’s a play everyone should see just for fun. The production is good. Some of the actors add some new dimensions to their characters; and they seem to have created the suspense. That’s what is important to this play.
Kathryn disappears. Lourdes laughs at a joke that occured five minutes earlier. e Marietta feels guilty about being here. A bond is developing between these strangers. It rains outside. A cat meows. Symbolism. Intermission
Policeman enters. Played by Cameron Reid. Harlon takes notes; he seems a little nervous or something. He’s good but not quite as convincing as the others. Harlon is tired of taking notes. He puts the pad away. The mystery is developed and then is solved. The play ends; and everyone is happy. They clap. The audience loved it, and isn’t that what counts ; anyway. Lourdes, Marietta, Kathryn and Harlon get up and leave. They make jokes about the pig statue’ in the Modern Languages building. They say something deep about life and love. They join hands and sing Don’t Cry For Me Argentina. The lights dim. The end.

Compilation Underground Varims ,7:tisIs
Radio Western:‘inctependent by Pete Lawson Imprint staff
The kids from the “hill” (Western University), do not often involve themselves in the underground music sc-ene of London, and therefore, the involvement of Radio Western, CHRW, is a healthy sign for the vibrant Londov scene. For more than a handful of years, because of London’s isolation (being a distance from Toronto), ILondon has produced a large array of new bands and the latest crop has been harvested by the folks at CHRW. The production on this record deserves praise, certainly better than many slim budget compilations. One of the album’s best, Shadow Dancer by Ukase, commences Side 1. This textural weave gains added energy from the captivating voice of Roze White - riveting high notes. Comparisons always’feel like an excuse for something to be said, but this’ song has the vitality of early Siouxsie and the Banshees. The Thin Line pulses out some pleas+nt textures in I. B,urning Leaues, and Walk On by Lifeless Currents states a positive rebellion with a cutting voice over acoustic guitar pulses.

The least exciting song on this vinyl City of Faith by Nosmo King Jr. is overshadowed by one of the best by Itsa Skitsa with a hard driving pop lick Warning. One of the veteran bands, Sheep 1 Look Up, only gets a response during the instrumental bridges in the song Like A Rat, but still lots of anger in these WYS*
Upon reflecting on the past years (and years) and some of the British compilations (or American), this album from a rather small conservative ci,ty outkhines many of the independent compilations from those worshipped (by alternative music types) countries. The opportunity to see these bands may be had in Kitchener if the Level will book them or in Toronto. Give them a listen at both ends - record and live.
No doubt Happy Head will bring a smile to their new accountants’ chubby faces but following yesterday’s formula for suc’cess isn’t necessarily going to work today unless of course yoiare Billy Idol and can somehow defy probability to milk a whole career out of a single song idea. Admittedly Like An Angel and Now She’s Gone with their heaven sent hooks aplenty are classics of the new “we‘really don’t like psychedelic music” psychedelic __ _-_pop genre, but an entire album of slight variations and combinations of these songs does not make for a “wykl trip, maaan”. The music is definitely catchy throughout but I don’t think it would be possible to distinguish and recall a single instance from the melange to save my life. -

At this point OUM interview came to a too-quick halt. But there was time for a final question. I: Have you ever regretted any political statements that you’ve made? BB: Yeah, of course. You’re always embarassed by not only political statements that you’ve made, but also things you do that the party doesn’t do. It happens all the time, but you have to be a bit thickskinned. We’re not talking absolute truths here, we’re talking ideas. And ideas have to be responsive + they can’t be fixed. They can’t just be “this is ihe next 5 year plan and if it means that 3 million Kulaks die of starvation in the Ukraine in the 30s then sorry, but that’s the #plan.” When politics-get like that, then I begin to question politics in general when ideology becomes a monoih., I think that the definition of politics is compromise - it has to be. Otherwise, you’re forcing your views on people. You have to argue about ideas. You have to exchange

greets Opera at Hagey Hall by Pete Lawson Imprint staff The touring company of the Canadian Opera Company, the Canadian Opera Company Ensemble, rolled into town at the Humanities Theatre on Dec. 1 and 2. This travelling troupe consists of resident company singers many who are young singers gaining experience and expanding repertoire. Having been written in his youthful years (first performed in 1817), Rossini’s Cinderella is not his most vibrant operatic work, though it is suited for touring, requiring only a small cast. There are some beautiful aria moments for the leads Cinderella and the Prince, but these moments are too few, the majority of the singing seems to concentrate on building up for the cadences. The biggest applause for beautiful voice should be herald ,to the soprano Linda Maquire Bennett. (The names of these soloist may be in error - the program notes did not differ between the two shows) Ms. Bennett possesses a easy lyric tone throughout her range, balanced with good diction. She graced the stage with beauty of voice and appearance (not stooping to discuss her cleavage), and the sonorous bass of Joel Katz, who sang the role of Prince’s advisor Alidoro, must also be applauded. ’ The Prince, tenor Benoit Boutet, presented the image of the handsome prince well. The image remained untarnished until he had to sing. Mr. Boutet’s voice is uneven in vocal quality and showed a lack of versatility when butchering some scale runs. The libretto lacks sparkle (how much is lost in the translation?). The comical - elements of the play are contained mostly in the,actions of the characters, such as the frolicking between the step-father and the Prince’s servant in the second half. Good comic effect was applied by Brian McIntosh and Christopher Coyea. The set doubled as the house and the palace, and the costumes represented Rossini’s era and were suitably attractive. This opera lacks real spick and to overwhelm an audience with its music is a difficult task. There are some splendid voices, and some voices which need more time, in the touring arm of the COC.
Paul B,oyce -leads Warriors to 87-84 overtime w-in by Mike McGraw Imprint staff When he wasn’t cleaning up on offense, he was hustling back to strengthen the defense. Paul Boyce -was at his very best last Thursday night at the PAC, as he tallied a career-high 41 points in g solid performance to lead the Waterloo Warriors to an entertaining 87-84 overtime victory over the always tough Toronto Estonia men’s team. Estonia has been Ontario’s provincial representative for the past five years. The win was even more impressive considering that. the Warriors were once again without the talents of injured guards Rob Froese and Tom Schneider. The Warriors got off to a strong start in a closely played first half. Powered by Boyce’s 25 first-half points, Waterloo took a 44-41 lead to the dressing room at halftime. Boyce not only dominated the front court, but was a major force in the tough Warrior defense which bottled up Estonia’s offensive attack. Shooting well from outsid-e, Scott MacKenzie netted 11 points before the half for Estonia. As the second half progressed, things were looking gloomy for the Warriors. Both teams failed to score in the first two minutes
of action, as the game took on a scrappy character. Gradually, Estonia found their shooting touch and powered their way to a 59-48 lead by the half-way mark. Waterloo was unable to establish an offensive attack, allowing Estonia to chip away at the still tight Warrior defense. Centre Jamie McNeil1 turned in another strong defensive effort, which included some impressive shot-blocking. Estonia’s Rob Samuels had a hot shooting hand while playing with 4 fouls. The Warriors found themselves down by 8 points with 5 minutes remaining, at which point their offense found new life. Highlighted by some clutch shooting from Jerry Nolfi and John Bilawey, Waterloo rallied to send the gape into -overtime deadlocked at 75. In the overtime period, Boyce was dominating on offense, especially from the foul line. His efforts were aided by some timely free throws from Nolfi, who finished the game with 18 as he directed the Warrior offense. MacKenzie netted 17 for Estonia while Samuels added 15. “We were stumbling around at the start of the second half.“said Warrior coach Don McCrae, adding “we just survived, we broke down on offense while we sur-
vived on defense. This makes it graphic to the players that they can’t do this; they have to play as hard as they can, even to the point of exha,ustion. Paul Boyce demonstrated how this is done with his performance.” McCrae also praised the solid play of Nolfi, who was on the floor for 45 minutes, acting as the Warriors’ only ball-handler while guarding Estonia’s Norm Clarke, a Canadian National team member. Last weekend at the PAC, Runnymede from Toronto won the Warrior Invitational High School Tournament, edging Kitchener’s St. Jerome’s, 50-47 in overtime. Runnymede’s Wayne Taylor was selected the tournament’s M.V.P. The Warriors have a month of well-deserved rest from their busy tournament schedule, as they’re idle until late December. On Dec. 28, they’ll be in action at the York Excalibur Tournament against Saskatchewan at 3 p.m. The tournament includes Laurentian, Brandon, Calgary, Ryerson, Dalhousie and, the host team. Waterloo will play a rematch against Estonia at Sheridan College on Jan. 3. The Warriors’ pre-season record currently sits at 9 wins, 5 losses.
Athlete of the Week -John Dietrich . Hockey
IAthlete of the Week Joanne Towner Synchronized Swimming
John, a second-year Science student, is a second-year player and a graduate of St. Jerome’s High School in Kitchener. Waterloo, for the first time in a number of years, defeated Western Nov. 28 and John played an essential rble in the victory. John’ scored two goals in the third period and allowed the Warriors to overcome a 2-1 deficit. The Warriors went on to win 4-2, after scoring another third period goal. This was John’s first twogoal performance in his Warrior hockey career. John has exceptiotial defensive skills which were evident in the Warrior’s 6-l victory over Windsor on Sunday. In this game, John’s line did not allow a goal and effectively killed off seven minor penalties. He has been instrumental in the success of the Warrior penalty-killing unit. John has increased his offensive productivity immensely this season. According to Warrior coach Don McKee, “John is a great hitter and a tireless ,’ worker”.
Joanne, a first-year Math studnt at Waterloo, swam for the Deep River Synchro team for three years and coached for two years. With a first-place finish in the qualifying competition for the OWIAA championship, Joanne led her teammates to a sixthplace finish overall in a competition last weekend. This marks the first time Waterloo has had an individual place first in this type of qualifying meet. Her top score over 13 swimmers from eight Ontario universities is a sure sign UW can expect good results from this year’s synchrb team in the upcoming ranking and championship meets. This is not an altogether new experience for Joanne, who has achieved the silver level in synchro skills and has competed in the intermediate provincials in 1984. Fielding an enthusiastic but relatively young team this year, the Athena’s Synchro team will surely benefit from Joanne’s experience, hard work and leadership.

Ho.ckey Warriors undefeated in last three games by Jonathan Sadleir Imprint staff This past week has proved a successful one for the Warriors hockey team as they defeated the Stangs on their home ice last Friday 4-2, romped ove,r Windsor 6-1 on Sunday and held second place Laurier to a 5-5 tie on Wednesday night at the Waterloo arena. All four lines for Waterloo perforined well as the black line of Scott Dick, Mike Girardi, Clinton Ellicott, Jamie Maki and Brian Ross produced goals in both games, Dick scoring against Western and Girardi putting one in against the Lancers.

Glover rounding out the scoring. Todd Coulter with one goal and John Dietrich with two added to Scott Dick’s goal to finalize the scoring in London. Wednesday night’s game against Laurier proved to be a tough one as the Warriors dominated the bulk of the first and second period but fell apart late in the second period when the officiating began to weigh heavily against them. The second period began with a 2-2 tie but the Warriors opened up the scoring with an early goal by Chris Glover from Mike Girardi followed up by a well earned goal by Steve Balas to put the Warrriors -ahead 4- 2. However,the uncharacteristic
defensive lapse by Laurier did not last long as strong offensive drives by the Warriors were nullified by a powerful Golden-
The Waterloo synchronized swimming team placed a respectable sixth overall at the OWIAA figures meet hosted here last Saturday. Leading the way for the Waterloo Athena’s was Joanne Towner’s first place finish. in the intermediate class. More than 60 swimmers from 10 teams competed in this first event of the season. A strong showing in the novice class garnered top honours overall for the McGill university swimmers, with Western and McMaster a close second and third. Shelly Hurlburt, turned in the best Waterloo novice result, finishing sixth out of 34 swimmers.
Karina Davidson, one of the Athena’s coaches, was encouraged by the result. “Most of our swimmers are first-year swimmers, with a good start like this, I am sure that UW’s synchro team will be a strong competitor over the next three or four years.” This first qualifying meet for the OWIAA championships consisted of mandatory figures only. The second of the thr’ee meets to determine the Ontario championship, to be held at McMaster in January, will have both figures and routine competition.
hawk defense. Laurier managed to take advantage of the profusion of Waterloo penalties in the latter half of the second and the bulk of the third to tie the game and then go ahead midway through the third. Some fine puckmanship by Dennis Wigle late in the third period to tie the game at 5-5 signalled the end of the scoring. Although, a penalty was dished out to a Laurier player who had been using an illegal stick, the Warriors failed to put one in during the remaining seconds and the game ended in a 5-5 draw. This past week’s performance was impressive to say the least. Waterloo fans who more often than not are looking for a team to cheer for can look to the Icefields

B-ball Athenas/ lose *another’ 2 by Glenn Hauer Imprint staff In another busy week of basketball, the Athenas played four season more games, a regular match-up against the Wilfrid Laurier Lady Hawks, and games against York, Laval, and Brock in last weekend’s York University Tournament. Unfortunately, the won-loss record was only 1-8. A general lack of intensity and a lot of fatigue can be attributed to the Athena’s misfortune in the past two weeks. The Wilfrid Laurier Lady Hawks played strongly both inside and outside the paint, draining several jump (set!) shots as well as scoring from the post. Their half-court game worked very effectively, as they intimidated( the shorter Athena shooters and worked the ball around the Athena zone to take the open shot. Waterloo’s most effective game is to play pressure defense and run a transition offense, however, they showed that they can play half-court as well, keeping Laurier to a 22-22 halftime score. Some bad free-throw shooting and a lack of intensity by Waterloo allowed Laurier to build a lead in the second half, as they eventually settled for a 5343 score. The only bright spot for the Athenas was the excellent shooting of Sheila Windle, who scored 18 points. Andrea Prescott led the Hawks with 16 points, with Chris Peal netting 14.
The Athenas pulled up their socks in the York Tourney, play-
‘ng the way they are fully capale of,. In the first game, they lost a barn-burner to York 59-58. They played “very well” according to Coach Warren Sutton, but came up short in the last second when they missed a free-throw to tie the game. Corinna Lueg and Cindy Poag both scored 14 points to lead the team in the scoring department. The next game was against 610 ranked Laval. It was a sluggish first half, however, the Athenas exploded in the second half with 67 per cent shooting and won the match 63-58. Karen McCulla scored five straight baskets to open the lead and ended up shooting 8 for 8 from the floor for 16 points: Michelle Campbell was 5 for 5 in the second half and wound up with 12 points. Corinna Lueg, Sheila Windle, and Cindy Poag scored 12, 10, and eig,ht points respectively in a balanced Waterloo attack. Brock University, the OWIAA East Division’s perennial powerhouse, defeated Waterloo 62-49 in the final game. The Athenas suffered a major setback when they lost Sheila Windle to an ankle injury in the first two minutes. Without a consistent shooting guard on the floor, Waterloo just couldn’t overcome the strong Brock team. Michelle Campbell scored 14 and Cindy Poag shot for 12 points for Waterloo. The Athenas now have a month break for Christmas, allowing for some rest and recuperation (and recreation). They

Mustangs _ make a convmcmg Squash victory 0
by Paul Jackson
There was absolutely no doubt whatsoever who would finish first at last weekend’s OUAA crossover squash tournament held at Waterloo. Western’s No. 1 Jamie Crombie, who is ranked second in the country, and Scott Nash, a nationally-ranked junior player, led the Mustangs to a convincing first-place finish. Warriors Jamie Allen, Steve Millard and Rob Ayer combined with wounded Wolf Imrich, John Curran and Ed Crymble to secure second-place. Other participating universities included Guelph, Laurier and McGill. The second ‘rcros-fl saver” occurs in Toronto on Jan,
