MUTINY! by Imprint Sports Dept. This week saw a major upheaval within the Waterloo Warriors -football organization. On Wednesday, Wally Delahey, the men’s athletic director, announced to the players that head coach Bob McKillop would step down at the end of the season. According to team captain Chris Maecker who is acting as spokesman for the players, tensions came to a head last Thursday when Coach McKillop announced during halftime at Guelph that his job as head coach was under attack by a player or players on the football team. McKillop also announced that he would find that player or group, and went on to question that player or group’s dedication to the organization.

Let’s Talk About ,

By Tom York

I

The rise of the modern multiple murderer [the subject of Elliott Leyton’s’ Hunting Humans, McClelland & Stewart, 1986] is particularly relevant to university students, especially women students. In Canada, where the overall homicide rate has been curiously stable for years; the multiple murder rate has remained similarly stable. Still, the astonishingly high homicide rate in the U.S. (the highest in the western industrial world, and by a huge margin) has begun to encroach on Canada - with multiple killer Ted Bundy’s occasional visits to Vancouver, for example, and the recent capture of alleged torturer and serial-killer Charles Ng in Calgary, not to mention our owri Clifford Olson. One thing a high percentage of these profoundly conservative, marginal figures have in common is th,eir preference for university women as victims, There are several reasons for this, according to Leyton. 11 The university campus is a classless enclave in the midst of a strati* fied society from which they feel excluded. Z) University women are not only idealized representativgs of the offending society+ but are often alone ahd accessible (walking to and from classes) and inclined to come under the killer’s control (by entering his car, or going home with him]. That is to say, they are foolishly fearlesi (though many serial killers employ ruses, eg. Ted Bundy’s wearing a cast and splint on his arm and fumbling with a load of books bn Central Washington State College campus to induce a Is-year-old co-ed, his third kill, to help him get his books to his car], And 3) University women embody perfectly the privileged freedom and upward mobility de’nied these marginal figures who have fumbled their opportunity, felt ridiculed, felt disillusionment regarding some personal ambition, and decided to “get badk” at, society by stealing its most valuable members (university women first, children second) and snuffing their lives. “College students are beautiful people. Good. hoking people. Healthy people. Exciting people,” said Ted Bundy, who killed at lea@ 20, and is suspected of having killed 40, college co-eds in California, Oregon and Washington campuses in the mid-‘70s. Or as Henry bee Lucas, apprehended in 1984 after. 360, killings, put it: “I was

death on women.” The sexual component of multiple-murders - always blatantly and brutally present - is, according to Leyton, secondary. The murderer’s prime motivation is social - a demonstration to the authorities, an insult to society at large. As Charles Starkweather, who killed 11, summed it up: “Dead deople are all on the same level.“. Not that this hasn’t happened throughout civilized history. But the. pre-industrial multiple killer was an aristocrat who preyed on his peasants (eg., the Baron Gilles de Rais, who sodomized and eviscerated over 800 children in the 15th century). The indust.rial era produced a newly arrived and insecure bourgeois (village schoolteacher, country doctor, etc.), who preyed on prostitutes, homeless boys, and housemaids. In modern North American society the multiple killer is usually a failed bourgeois (a high-school or college drop-out, from an institutionalized background or illegitimate or adopted or whose mother has married three or more times) who stalks university women in pursuit of his own “personal mission,” his’“task,” his %tatement.” The tragedy and irony is that what has produced this escalation of senseless violence is the achievement of the freedom for .which university prepares us - freedom to explore one’s self without rpference to rigid theories of thought. That freedom exacts a terrible price, for it releases humans from their social contract. Those whose ambitions are denied simply explode (and there have been more each year since the 1960s: there is now a new multiple killer every 1.8 months, with 9.25 victims per month]. And in a culture which glamorizes violence their explosion is tolerated and even celebrated (in the movies, media:coverage, and celebrity-status ’ awarded the mass murderers). ’ We can expect many more to follow the path of the U. of Chicago undergraduate,‘William Heir-’ ens, who searched for sdmething - who knows what? - in thi! dissected entrails of a kidnapped child, and wrote in lipstick. on the, walls of another victim’s apartment: “FOR HEAVENS SAKE CATCH ME BEFORE I KILL MORE I CANNOT CONTROL MYSELF.” (The Rev. Dr. Tom York is United Church Chaplain ta UW and WI,& His office is in St. Paul’s College.] * ,

The infamous ELP test is going to be scrapped at the University of Lethbridge. ELP’s which stand for English Language Proficiency test have been apart of the Canadian university system since the early 1980s. The reason for the abolition of the Lethbridge ELP is’economic according to the student paper on campus The Meliorist. The onus is now on professors to recognize substandard writing skills in strrdents and then recommend corrective action. One result of the ELP demise ELF according to the Meliorist is that “the elimination of the ELP requirement means that students no longer face expulsion for failing the exam. It will also save students the $20 exam fee.” Queen’s

El Salvador’s woes the focus of event at St; Jerome’s by Mike

O’Driscoll Imprint staff A fledgling group from the KW area will hold an information and discussion session October 18 at St. Jerome’s College to increase public awareness of the many problems faced by the people of war-torn El Salvador, The event, entitled “The People; The Culture; The Country”, will run from 1 to 6 p.m. in Seigfried Hall. There is no charge. In addition, Cutumay Camones, an El Salvadorean band, will perform at Seigfried Hall on Monday night. The group returns to the cultural roots of its members to create “the new Salvadorean song” by integrating the marimba with the sound of guitars, violin, accordion, bass and percussion. Cutumay calls itself “a song for the self-determination of the Salvadorean people.” Tickets are $5. The sponsoring organization

Lawsuit pending .at Fed Hall by Cindy

Long . imprint staff In the October 8 edition of The Varsity (U of T’s student newspaper) it was reported that the University of Waterloo had an *‘alcohol-related” outstanding lawsuit against it. The report ii not accurate. According to the Federation of Students’ business manager, Fred Kelly, there is a laweuit pending regarding a healthrelated incident at Federation Hall, but it does not involve alcohol. Nevertheless,Kelly confirms that pub managers and adminis.trators are very concerned about the possibility of civil liability lawsuits. For this reason, he will be attending a seminar on October 30 hosted by Professor

Ac_cpsding to the Inter-Church Committee on Human Rights in Latin America one out of every four Salvadoreans is currently displaced or living as a refugee. The committee notes that the country’s six-year-old civil war, waged between proponents of a people’s rebellion and the military forces of the American backed Duarte regime, has claimed some 60,000 lives, has consistently downgraded already pitifully low living standards, and has marked the erosion of almost all basic human and civil rights.

Youth conference tacklesworld .

Five University of Wsterloo students are looking f0rwaF.d to the ebtablishment of a new magazine, written by and for college and university students the world over, dealing with. world issues and problems ranging from Third World hunger to nuclear arms control.

The Melbourne conference focussed on three major themes: the nuclear arms race; the environment, including resources and energy, and the Third World and social justice. “The conference and its aftermath of public appearances, media interviews and other functions kept us very busy for a good two weeks,” says Warling. “After that, we spent some additional time sightseeing, including a visit to the Great Barrier Reef .” The students met with Australian cabinet. ministers, were interviewed by radio, television and newspaper reporters. They also addressefl assemblies of Australian public and high school students. .

New magasine dealing with; world issues The five were impressed with this possibility during a recent conference in Australia, a conference dedicated to building a better future for the young people of the world. It was hosted by the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology as part of its centenary celebrations and it brought together QO student delegates from 18 countries, including Eastern European and Third World countries. The five UW students were the sole Canadian representative@. They are: Mark Warling and Glen Hearns, earth sciences: Wilma VanderVeen, mathematits, &d Whitney Erickson and Abyd Karmali, chemical engineering.

It was intense.”

Students met with Australian cabinet ministers, were interviewed by radio, television and newspaper reporters Their expenses were lower than expected because individual Australian families hosted them, throughout much of their Stay, in their homes.

The UW students are completing. a report on the conference. Some of its recommendations will be: university students the world over should call on their governments to reverse the capital flow from Third World countries and ensure a more equitable distribution of wealth bet ween richer and poorer nations; students the world over should also call on’ their nations’ governments to reject discrimination based on race, creed, sex, sexuality, wealth, age, or class; there should be an attack on environmental problems [for example, acid rain) in a spirit of cooperation; there should be a freeze on the production and deployment of nuclear weapons: a ban on nuclear weapons test-ing; globalnuclear disarmament,

“There was, fur example, what appeared to be a genuine discussion of Chernobyl in the Soviet Union and Three Mile Island in the United States, with both sides *admitting mistakes had been made,” Warling reports. “We found it interesting but alittle frightening too that young people from China and Malaysia were not even aware of the enormity of the.Chernobyl incident: young people from West Gery many complained their government had played down and even falsified information concerning

Local.xomp&ny calls for’easing of rules ’ , by Ralph Zuljan Imprint st rff *Canada’s defensive industry is having a major influence on the direction of the country’s militar p,olicies, says Ernie Regehr of t x e Waterloo chapter of Project Ploughaharee, “The current structure of Canada’s military industry in some senses drives, rather’ than is responsive to, Canadian defence policy,” says Regehr. He says there is ample evidence to support this statement: Canada exports a great deal of military hardware despite a Canadian policy that “says that Canadian. arms should not. go to countries which pose a threat to Canada, where there are imminently threatened+ or actual hostilities, or where a UN resolution prohibits arms exports,” Yet, artillery shells have been sent to South Africa, an helicopter engines have been, sent ta Iran. These are: glaring examples of practice contradicting policy, he says. The government has difficulty controlling the arms. industry. A ty ical example exists in Diemac 1 Inc. of 1036 Wilson Ave., Kitchener, a subsidiary of Devtek Corpoiation. This company, with the -assistance of many subcontractors, produces the Cr rifle (commonly known aa the Ml6A2) for the Canadian Armed Forces Right now, their contract “to produce some 80,000 CT rifles is nearly half finished. The last rifle will be delivered four years from now ia 1991. As a result, the comp’any faces a Crisis as its main product loses the only market currently available. That story has already appeared in the news as have a variety of n&s stories in which Diemaco is the central character. Project Ploughshares, located in Conrad Grebel College, has kept a record of Diemaco’s appearance8 in the media and. some government documents as well. Their records go back to 1883 when the rifle replacement program was looking for a contractor. A fascinatin collection of changes occur in t!I e focus of media attention. The K-W Record first mentioned Diemaco on December 16, 1983, At that time reference was made to the poesibility that Die-

deal with clarifying the economic benefits, and the costs, The C7 rifles coet more than a similar weapon imported from the US, but then-defence minister Jean Jacques Blais defends this in order to “get Canada back into production of’ military goods”. In another article Blais stated that “it is government policy to use military procurements to credte jobs.” Diemaco is the

Djemaco’s arms manufacturing Canadiah “centre of excellence” for small arms production, declared Blaia. Diemaco representatives btated that the rifle contract “will make the company a eignificant exporter of military arms” to other NATO countries. Such exports are “condetent with ;dernment policy” Diemaco .

.

In October, i@84, Pernfuss Roofing Ltd. got media attention because it paid $45,OOO/acre for a_ half-acre of land in the same d industrial park where Diemaco intended to build a new plant. Diemaco purchased, through Devtek, seven acres at $17,50o/acre. Ki tcbener Council defended the sale to Diemaco by noting that Cambridge offered land for the Diemaco factory at

short attention s#an on the part of the media. The public implicitly has a short attention span, or a lack of interest in the issue. For the past one and a half years Diemaco has ceased to draw interest in its activity., Though an Ontario industry and trade report praised tbe company for its $5 million of total investment as well a8 its efforts to increase the Canadian content

ment policy to shaping that policy for the government. Ken Epps of Project Ploughshares says that since Canadian weapons acquisitions are modest by comparison with what is necessary to sustain a company in the long run, therefore, -those company’8 which produce weapons for Canadian will sooner or later find themselves in the position Diem&co is moving toward:

Students’ viewed as obstacles at Uw An old adage on the UW campus - “This university would perfect if it wasn’t for the students.” Lately a series of events have brought this prevailing attitude to my attention: whenever a decision is to be made, it is made not with the student’s well-being in mind, but with that of the faculty and/or staff. Interestingly, universities sell themselves io prospective undergrads with the image that the institution is here to serve, to facilitate a brilliant and enlightening introduction into the world of post secondary education and the galaxies beyond. Don’t give me that do-goody-gogd bullshit. Case ’ 1: A department that would rather coerce its co-op students into taking eight-month work-tqrms, instead of the more marketable’ and preferable four-month terms as allowed in the course calendar, by threatening to not offer the courses required to complete the degree in question. The reason as far as I can tell: to ensure the department’s budget and faculty are under less ‘strain during the prime summer saili’ng season.- (Silly of us student types to.expect them to cater to our needs.) The result: a lot of pissed-off people fearing for their educational and professional futures, Case 2: A professor of mine (who will remain unnamed, and hopefully won’t read this, because as we all know sooooo well, it’s their fragile egos that are so often fatally linked t@ the holy transcript) is in the habit of restricting all questions to the end of class. Why? So that the lecture is not interrupted by all those pesky little inquisitive minds. The casualty list consists of about 40 alienated _ students who have forgotten what was so near and dear- to their hearts by the pd of a two hour lecture, and leave feeling as injlignifiy cant and uninspired as when they entered the class. Caae 3: It’s been said that while academic skirmishes over course cukriculum are waged between faculty members, the battle ground is the fetiile minde’of the student body. So true, BItit whjle professors around the wdrld fight to legitimize their own existences no one ever stops to ask the students what they might like to,,learniG Kind of autocratic, kind of silly, very safe for some, Case 4: A trivial note. Ever notice how all the best parking spots’ on campus are reserved for faculty and staff? They get paid to come here, while students pay to come here. Doesn’t make sense until you realize how tiring it &an be walkins from your car with a full wallet. That’s just a few examples that came to-mind, and they weren’t all that e3usive either. Bet you can think of a few too. This university never will be perfect, but it could be alot more realistic about why it’s here. , Mike

Mo pin, .but.... Well folks,’ all those who saw the Oktoberfest parade please raise your hands. Okay. Now all those that thought that the parade was boring only because of the spaces between the floats and bands please keep your hands raised, I figured a% much. In all’ the years I have been going to the parade i!: has never’been as bad as it was this year. The event was probably a real screani if you happened to stand near a.spot where they were videotaping the parade, but if you were standing say at King and Water or, heaven forbid, King and Ontario the parade must have had a long drawn-out look to it. Myself and a few others I knbw stood at KCI because it was high off the street so the view was great. Regardless, down the street was CKCO-TV with its mighty force of video-operators running helterskelter all over the street, to get that perfect angle for the re-brbadcast. You could see the bands and floats backed up for what it seetied miles each getting their “15 minutes” of fame. Okay, I can understand that floats tend to “stretch out” a little bit over the course of the route (entropy no doubt] but it was only frustrated,by the noble attempt to immortalize it on film. Parades are best seen live that!3 why everyone drags everyone else they know to these things, The re-broadcast is all only icing on the cake and where Kitchener gets to have its glorious beer-bash broadcast all over this culturti-starved country of ours (yes this is almost 100 per. cent Canadian content). All I can say to the organizers of this morsel, of advertising excess about next year is the immortal words of Jack Benny and they are, “Keep it moving, keep it moving.” Robert

Time to r redress t-he wrong This is actually a comment on “old news” but since I often fitid myself in “no-news!’ capsule while at school, I was hot aware of this occurrence until I went home for turkey this pa&t weekend. Appartitly on September 17, the U.S. House of Representatives in a 243-141 vote, offered the nation’s apology and $1.2 billion in reparatjon payments to the thousands of Japanese-Americans who were forced into relocation camps during WW I!. More than fou.r hours of debate lead to this decision that redresses the imprisonment of appriiximately 120,000 American citizens of Japanese ancestry. The 1942 detainment of these Americans as a reaction to the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbour was described by Hous Speaker lohn Wright as “oerhaps the -most egregious vi’olation of our constitution in the 20th Century. Today we have the ’ opportunity to ’ . redress that ancient wrong.” Tax-free payments of $20,000 each for those detained and the nation’s formal apology for these American citizens will be made following Senate approval of the bill. Here in our own country, 22 000 Canadians ‘of Japanese origin were relocated from their West coast homes, shortly after the American action was taken against their own apparent “security risk(, This action by our government was peafdrmed despite the statements made by RCMP and army officials at the time that the Japanese Canadians posed no threat to Canada’s internal security. No charges were ever made against anyone of Japanese ancestry during this period, yet the homes, automobiles, and other

personal property were gathered and sold without consent by the owner. Some of the money generated by the sale of these’goods was used to finance the evacuation of the Japanese-Canadians to work camps in northern B.C., camps in the B.C. interior, and to other locations out of the pro4 vince. ’ Th’e Mulroney government has made an offer to the JapaneseCanadian community regarding the redress*issue. A token fund for community purpos’es amotinted to about $850 for each person that was evacuated from his/her home. No individual qompensation was tabled in the Canadian deal. -’ The argument that I have experienced over this issue of compensating these Canadian citizens are often of the nature: “War is war, sometimes things happen that can’t be helped.” Wartime situations do raise

emotions to great levels but the situation here in Canada during I WWII did not require the lqss of all freedoms for a specific group of citizens because of their ancestry, The irony of the whole matter was that Canadian& including some of Japanese origin, wgre overseas fighti.ng for the very values of freedom and liberty that were stripped,from the Japanese-Canadians. In 1942 the Canadian government followed the US, action in their attempt to quell the “Yellow Peril” that was supposedly. positioned on the West coast of North America. The drastic measures that were undertaken by the Americans *has now been redressed, and it is time that Canada follows the action of our neighbours to the South so that the proper reparation of the these Canadian citizens will be _ forthcoming. - Don Kudo

Writer wrong onL tw.0 counts To the editor I completely disagree with both the form and the substance of Cindy Long’s Soapbox “Doubtful Benefits” (Imprint, Oct. 9). In form it is perhaps the most objectionable and self-serving piece I’ve seen in Imprint. Why? Because it’s obviously sour grapes over being thwarted by the paper she writes’ for. A poor loser, she now writes to us all to complain. Perhara she hopes there’ll be a groundswell of indignation against her intolerable plight. A Paper has to have some sort of edit&l polici; it need not be explicit - a workable consensus as to wha’t the paper is about. If Cindy’s co1um.n was rejected by a staff vote, I assume Zeke and Chris Gerrarda’ columns were accepted by a vote. Democracy can be damned

A war of columns in any paper would b@ a boring, counterproductive farce, Like “letter wars” in past issues of Imprint, what begins as a difference in position quickly degenerates into nastiness and ceases to contribute anything toward a greater understanding and appreciation of t)le’issue.

(a pesudonym)

Last Saturday night, I saw the movie Too Outrageous, a comedy staring Craig Russel, among others, advertised as a “drags .to riches” story. The plot of the film centres around a “drag queen” who tries to break into the “big time” entertainment industry c and leave the exclusively gay clubs behind. Even though I laughed a great deal throughout this movie, there was one thing that stood outmost of all. It was not the comedy, or the Uoutrageous” costumes of Robin Turner, played by Craig Russel, It was something relatively near the end of the film, After Robin’s lover walks out on him, one of the characters, Robin’s musical arranger, Luke, who is also the lover of Robin’s agent, leaves the film. In the story, he had to go back to New Yo.rk. Robin’s agent then oes on to explain, with a great deal of anguish evident, that Luke Bhas full-blown AIDS. * In the play, The Normal Heart, the story is mostly about AIDS, and the terror, frustration, antier, and sorrow surrounding it. Because I was going through a difficult time in my own life, the force of this play did not really hit me. But watching the screen of Too Outrageous at that moment Saturday night, and seeing the lover of the AIDS victim speak, I was suddenly hit%y the force of what AIDS really is. So many times in the past I have felt my own anger and frustration toward a government and the straight segment of the population that seemed to not care whether we, lived or died. I have written about this with indignation, almost screaming for someone tq do something. But having seen what I saw in that scene in, Too Outrageous, I do not feel anger now. I feel pain - pain for the man on the screen that had to watch his lover die in a most hideous way’ pain for all the people that have died and have had to watch others that they loved die, and pain for all of those who will die. Not only do I feel pain, but I also fear. I fear for what this disease is doing to the gay community, what it is Poing to everyone on this planet. I fear-a backlash against gay persons, because we have been (wrongly) -viewed, as the perpetrators of this malaise. AIDS. is not a gay disease. It is a disease of our species. It can kill all of us. This virus does not just select out the cells of gay men. And I fear for my own well being. In the past, I have tried to take an attitude of “we gre all going to die one day, so we should not get worked up about it”, I suppose that that seems to work for me most of the time, but when confronted with the horrific way that AIDS engenders death, Lam scared. I do not want to die like that. I am not jrelling now. I am pleading. Please m I beseech all of you out there - help us. We have got to pull together on this. We, the gay community is trying so hard to help ourselves and everyone else afflicted with AIDS - but we can not do it alone - and it is so hard to get anyone to listen to us. AIDS is certain death now. We havb got to do something to find a cure -a vaccine, a treatment or we are all going to die. More research must be done. Fast. Make some phone calls. Talk to your Members of Federal and Provincial Parliament. Call the AIDS,Committee of Toronto, or GLLOW. But please do something. Or we may all be dead. Au of ris. The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) has been diagnosed in 40,051 persons in the United States with 23,185 deaths as of Aug. 10, lSS?. Some 58 per’cent of the adults and 01 per cent of the children diagnosed with AIDS have died, including more than 78 per cent of those patients diagnosed before JanuaTy 1985. In the fir&t 36 we!ks of this year, there were 12,758 (8,511 in the same period last year) reported cases of AIDS.

I would like to offer my support to Cindy Long for her commendable position against censorship in Imprint, There may be room for, debate on the merits of censoring certain kinds of published material - violent pornography for example. However, the censorship of idea8 is, or ought to be, abhorrent to those with the intellectual courage to put their viewpoints to the test of others’ arguments, In principle, then, I for one would be delighted to see (and have the opportunity to respond to) the series of articles proposed by Ms. Long.

Tradition 5 by Peter Stubley I have’never been to South Africa. I cannot cliim to be an expert on apartheid. However, there are a few observations that everyone can make. Africa is not Europe of Nopth America, The cultures that make, up Africa are not like the cultures that make up Europe or North America. Before the Europeans arrived in Africa, there had been certain historical patterns established. African history is based on the relationohips between the many different tribes that make up the African people. Where the Europeans went through the process of developing city-state and fintilly nation-state, the Africans had a much simpler system. The stronger tribe would conuer the weaker tribe, and the weaker tribe would be killed, %riven away, or made into slaves, regardless of who lived on the land first. When the Europeans arrived on the scene, they continued the tradition. They conquered the native Afkicans and enslaved them. By western standards, the Africans were not slaves, because they were paid for their work, but had lost control of their own country, The Europeans have since attempted to impose their system of government on theaAfricans. The continent has been carved into nations whose borders have little relation t,o the m&y different tribes. The African countries have also had European democracy foisted on them, with varying degrees of success. Through the latter half of the 20th century, the European hold in Africa has weakened, until South Africa is the only remaining white-ruled country. The South African whites are worried about what is going to happen to them when they are no longer the strongest tribe. The trarisition from white to black rule has sometimes been peaceful, and sometimes violent. Most observers would predict a violent transition for South Africa, South Africa’s route toward an all-black government is thk traditional one. Does that make it right? Or wrong?

Ms. Long’s compassionate analysis of my lot leads her to state that my lifestyle “does not work”. What an outstandingly arrogant conclusion. I implies that she is the best ,judge of my intereet and welfare. Whatever “suffering” I may endure in my life, and for whatever reason, it .does not “belong” to Ms. Long and her kind, not is she equipped to judge its extent and cause.

To argue for the suppression of a particular lifestyle choice for no dther reason that that it happen8 not to be the choice of the majority has a striking parallel with censorship. It appears that although Ms. Long may insist on her own freedom of expression, the freedom of others is of no great concern to her.

It will make us a more American nation; it will make us more dependent on the American economy, on American politics. I think that battle was lost 60 years ago. .,

I really don’t see what we gained. The more I reed about the deal it seems that we gave hn just about everything and won a fairly meaningless ‘dispute mechanism . . s We’re not necessarily protected from these new , bills in the congress. The whole thing really bothers me. At Meech Lake they gave away the power of the federal government in this country and now we’ve given away the po,wer to legislate in this country because of an agreement with an outside power. It’s Mulroney style of negotiating: to give away everything for the sake of a deal. Tad Carlton President, Students

I am certainly against it. I think it’s potentially disastrous in Canada because it represents a fundamental shift away from the concerns and the values we have held as a nation for many, many years. In fact since its founding. I think there are certainly a great deal more losers? than winners that I can see in it. Those that stand to lose the most are those who are in the weakest position in society: labour, farmers, women . I I It operates under a theory that doesn’t take into account a concdrn for regional disparity, a concern for the poor, a concern for those in a positjon- of weakness. It represents a very serious threat to sovereignty, Rofeswr TJ. Downey PoliticabScience

Yes I am for it - subject to seeing the final details which are not yet published. The r&son: the status quo’is not an option. It’s either freer trade or much greater U.S. protectionism. 1 Douglas Wrigh’t Univsrrity President

I’m against free trade as I think it’s going to end up because I don’t think the Canadians are going to get a fair deal out of it; it’s not going to be free. Namely it’s going to really hurt the auto industry. We have a pretty good deal going right now. _

I’m opposed2 to an allencompassing trade deal. It should be on a sector-to-sector basis where problems could be more- easily dealt with. Frankly, all the emphasis on free trade is the government’s way to take the heat off itself for its other deficiencies.’ Steve Kannon Editor-in-Chief,

Imprint

The problem with the current pact ia that there ase very few details. For that reason alone, I would say I’m opposed to ratifyi g it as it is. We just don’t know w% at we are ratifying. . Jt’s not clear whether we have free trade generally or whether it’s going to be free trade for cbrporations and consumers will have some restrictions. * Professor Iim Brox Economics, and Faculty ’ As&ociation President ‘. I am against free trade, I think that a lot of the people who are for free trade feel that Canada haa to compete internationally and the way to do it is to have a strong trade agreement with the United States which I don’t agree with. I think we can enhance our trade in our economy by trading between the provinces which is petty poor sight nowi For examp Pe its cheaper for Ontario to buy coal off British Columbia but we fail to do that because of regional rivalries but we’ll buy coal off Pennsylvania.

As Canadians we have always been seen as a young country that needed to protect herself in order to grow and prosper as a country should, That’s all fine and dandy to say, but now with free trade we’ve taken tho’se selfish ideas and thrown them out the window not simply for our own good but for the good of our ever friendly neighbour tp the south! There is no doubt that there ase a number of advantages to free trade, (other than getting out of paying duty at the hordes!): But I can’t help to wonder if the picture will change Qver the l&year transitional period. So much of the agreement is open to change that what we think we are getting today will be very different a few years down the road.

a. On, sexuality ,

By Bob tiorton

I would like to start right off by saying )that I think many member4 of the Christian community have been wrong in treating members of the gay community the way they have. The Bible says to “Love your brother as yourself’. If your- shunning your brother or calling him weird (by the way, I’m using brother in the global sense) then you are not loving him, If you had a feature of your personality that some people didn’t .find particularly easy to accept, would0 you prefer them not to constantly be giving youa hard time about it? I realize that it is blatantly obvious but I would like to point out to members of the Christian community that we are all human. If we are straight or gay it makes no difference, we are, all human and needing and deserving of love; both from man and, more importantly, from God. Now, before I go any further, I would like to make something clear. I believe homosexuality is a sin and is not the way that God intended us to live. That does not mean that I hate people who are homosexual, it simply means I believe the act of homosexual intercourse is a sin. But then, so are many thingi. Premarital sex is, for heterosexuals, virtually the same sin as homosexual intercourse is for homosexuals. I realize that some would disagree with this but the point is, ydu, or perhaps I should say we, for 1 too am guilty of sinning, are doing something that God doesn’t want us to do. I have found (in my limited knowledge) that .premarital sex (and I presume it would relate to homosexual sex).has a very negative long term affect on relationships. Now, I will not go so far as to say all premarital sex is wrong, I can’t make such sweeping statements (even though I believe it for myself), but I would say that in general it causes confusion in a relationship that i-s not firmly established. From what I have seen, the earlier you get involved in sex within a relationship. (sex meaning most kinds of intimate physical contact in this case) the more difficult it is to distinguish emotion from hormones. From what I have seen, people tend to get hurt more and have a mare difficult time breaking up when-there is sex involved. Perhaps when dad said that sex before marriage was wrongr He was-just trying to save us a lot of grief. Nothing we do cannot be forgiven. If we have previously or are having premarital sex, God can forgive us, and indeed He will if we irsk Him. We should remember though; we are not alone. There are mapy people, both straight and gay, who, are -involved in premarital sex. We as Christians have no rightto judge any of them. We should simply strive to help both ourselves and anyone who asks for our help. In helping people to do the will of God, we glorify God and isn’t that what we’re trying to do?

BACCHUS by Sandra

Johnoton

* Statistics indicate 80 per cent of students on Canadian university and college campuses drink alcoholic beverages. No other single group of Canadians has a higher -proportion of drinkers than the post secondary student population. While moderate drinking is often associated with students, more than loper cent oistudents suffer negative consequences through the abuse of alcohol. Problems reported include poor grades, .financiaI loss, breaking the law, and social difficulties. Many of these problems often only become evident in later life, after years of alcohol abuse. Drinking habits developed while in school often remain with the student for the rest of his/her life. Young students become exposed-to many new freedoms once they leave high-school and move dway from home to attend university. One important freedom encountered is the student’s alternative choices about drinking. By providing awareness, we communicate the facts about alcohol to the students, helping

@lans new seWiCes

them’ make rational, adult choices. While most of the previous work in alcohol awareness programs for students has focussed on undesirable outcomes of over-drinking and scare tactics, students peiceive these programs as “anti-drinking” and thus rejected them because-they were no,t in harmony with accepted social norms and customs. What is needed is a progtiam that students can relate to, one which is not threatening and one which is realistic. This type of program would be one which emphasizes and models the positive. i BACCHUS, named after the god of wine in classical Greek’ mythology, is such a program. It promotes responsible drinking behaviour, not abstinence. The BACCHUS philosophy: ’ drink moderately if you’re going to drink: know your own limit; don’t drink to be “one of the crowd”: be considerate of others who don’t want to drink; and. don’t drive when you’ve been drinking. BACCHUS is peer-based in its approach to educ$tion.

Wtiat-is India? Some personal observations on the’ diverse by Jane Oliver

.

What is-India? Chanting sadhus and singing ‘birds, perfumed blossoms and burning incense, orange and pink turbans and red and gold brides, guram chai and sweet Iossis, tandoori chicken and red hot chilies, wild peacocks and scavenging vultures, bicycle rickshaws and camel drawn ca’rts, handlebar moust&hes and Himachali topis, painted elephants ,and hairy buffalo, non-working telephones and daytime blackouts+ tropical sunsets and snow-capped peaks, sugar cane fields and wide-open desert, marble temples and Le Corbusier buildings, Tibetan flags and political slogans+ the spinning wheel and Ashoka’s lions. India is vibrant, sensuous, unpredictable - alive! Before leaving for India, I felt that I must prepare myself emotionally for the trip. I imagined the worst scenario - thousands of beggars, rampant disease, absolute filth. I expected to break down in tears andshout with anger at the poverty and pollution I would see. Instead, the colourful clothes of the Rajasthani people, the ambling, hairy camels, and stirrtng Indian classical music warmed my heart as I lalighed and smiled. Certainly, there were grotesque lepers, sickly children, rabid dogs, smokey air, and piled-up garbage. But what struck me was seeing and experiencing the liveliness and the warmth of the people we met, the beauty of the marble temples and rdyal forts, and the incredible variety of life and activity everywhere-we went.

At the start of our journey through the deserts of Rajasthan, I felt the need to make sense out of all that I saw. Everything that caught my eyes looking out the bus window, seemed so different, so for.eign. What did it all mean? Shouldn’t 1 be doin’g more than just observing? A rather wise member of our group, an elderly gentleman from Canada, suggested that 1be satisifed with simply observing. His mesaage was to keep my eyes and ears open, to take it all in and make sense of what 1 saw later. 1 was in lndia now, and so 1 should experience it to the fullest. I then found myself watching and listening intently to all that I faced in the streets, in the temples and palaces, and while spending time with Indians themselves. In fact; I felt no desire nor need to read books I brought from home. I was in India, and seemingly oblivious to any other world I had known. It’s only now, in talking about the trip with friends back in Canada, that I’m piecing together many of the things i saw. There is a temple on Jakhoo Hill in the town of Simla in the Himalayas. This tern* ple is dedicated to Hanuman, the monkey deity, “divine in origin and with magical powers.” On the steep climb up this hill, sit and walk many chattering monkeys. After a strenuous half-hour climb I arrived at the temple on the hill. I sat down on a bench to rest and to look out over the valleys atid hills in sight. Thirsty, I reached into my bag for an orange. No sooner had I brought it out than a monkey had spied it, jumped up onto the bench and reached to grab the orange! Rather surprised and a little fearful I swung my arm at him and sent him flying off the bench. The local photographer for tourists witnessed the whole scene, yelled at the monkey and picked up a rock to throw at him. The monkey ran off and I was left to thank the man and contemplate whether I would Further take the chance of peeling and eating it. I felt shaken up, but relieved that the monkey w& gone. It suddenly struck me though as being contradictory that I hit the monkey and that the man threatened and yelled at it. Wasn’t I sitting on a hill with a temple nearby that was for worshipping Hanuman, where monkeys are viewed as divine beings? Shouldn’t I and the man therefore have been conciliatory and happily let the monkey *take my Drange? How closeljr are beliefs and actions linked? It seems simply that monKeys too have their place in Indian society - as animals to be competed with ‘on:arth, and as divine beings to be re’coglized spiritually in temples. Animals are omnipresent in India. It has

the world’s greatesi population of cattle+ 400 million strong, along with water buffalo, goats, sheep, camels, peacocks, elephants, and a great variety of birds same sacred and others not, many domesticated and others wild. The treatment by huqans of cows and dogs especially struck me. In large, modern cities like Delhi and Bombay, I was amazed by the fact that cows freely walk the streets along with cars, buses and people. Some seem ownerless as thtiy drift from one garbage pile to the next or weave in and out of the street vehicles. But cows are revered in India, as they symbolize the nourishing and productive mother, proi;lding five important items: melted butter (ghee], dung [for fuel), urine (a disinfectant), milk and curd (dhai). It is an economic as well as a religious relationship between humans and their cattle. To kill a cow is sacrilegious, so cows of all ages roam the city and village streets until they one day drop dead. There, is a Western expression, “holy cow!“, no doubt derived from India. In actuality the expression should be “holy bull!“, as the bull is highly regarded as a symbol of strength - both physically and sexually. In the city of Mysore in southern India, there is a temple on the top of Chamundi Hill. One can walk up the 1.000 steps to reach this temple. Two thirds of the way up lies a gargantuhn carved stone bull. It is decorated with fresh flowers daily, while a Brahmin (priest) stays nearby, This black bull is called Nandi, the carrier of Siva - one of the chief godheads of the Hindu Trinity. Siva represents the, forces of creation and of destruction. His sexual pqwers are passed on through Nandi and so the bull is also worshipped.

In the town of Simla, 7,000 feet high in the Lower Himalayas, autos are not allowed on the upper roads of the town. So how does one transport furniture, store goods and other items to the houses and buildings? On your back. There are men who earnmoney by carrying such items into the town.

Atop the hill are cows. They wander &bout-freely nudging people for handouts. To perform puja (making’an offering to a god or goddess), one offers incense, flowers, a coconut and a couple miniature bananas. The cowa are anxious to partake of these sweet offerings. As well, bilk is offered to people outside of the Chamundeswari T&tpje. Similarly, other temples throughout ‘India are accompanied by carv-ed bull figures. The cattle are decorated: the bulls wfth painted horns of blue, green, yellow or otherwise, while the cows are adorned with embroidered fabric covering their faces, humps or even backs. It is a celebration of the wealth provided to humans by this venerated animal, In great contrast to the treatment afforded cattle, is the low esteem held for dogs. The majority of rdogs are mere scavengers, living in the streets of the cities and villages. One dares not touch these seemingly wild creatures, as they are feared to be rabid. It is only the richer Indians who keep dogs as pets and treat them as a Westerner is accustomed to feeding it, grooming it and taking it for walks. Beasts of burden. Are these cattle or

foot in front of the other as he faced the ground and trudged up the hill to his destination. There is a qualitj; to Simla town unmatched by any other locale I visited, Simla itself has a very humane feeling to it. It is a city of about 100,000 inhabitants having grown considerably since the time as a \ when it was used by the British summer government capital. Sitila is perched here and there on the top and sides of a hill. The Mall, or main street, stretching along the entire ridge, from the old Viceroy’s Lodge on Observatory Hill to Chota Simla, an hour and a half’s walk away, is for pedestrians only, with exceptions for government and emergency vehicles. One walks to wherever one must go. And any walk is a pleasank one as the high Himalayas

The Ridge, or main square of the city, is bounded by grandstands on either side. At midday, the seats are filled with people soaking up the sun and generally observing the life going on around them - the young school boys playing cricket, children atop horses going on rides, photographers taking pictures of tourists, Indians and others alike, dressed-up in traditional Himachali clothes, shoe-shine

boys hawking their service, and Tibetan women selling shawls. In the late afternoon, The Mall in central Simla is filled with people strollirig arm in arm past the pastry, clothes and book shops. There is an easy relaxed pace to their walk. Smiles are exchanged with hand palms meeting in front, saying “Namaste” to friends and acquaintances. The streets are a -meeting place, to share the day’s activities and thoughts with one another. Cars and auto rickshaws are noticeably and thankfully absent. No horns, no near misses, and no exhaust fumes add to the peace and humane atmosphere. Respect is a highly placed value in India, There are different words or additions to words that alone signify respect or a high regard for a person. For example, a man is addressed as “Saheb” and a woman as “Mem Saheb”. Then there is the touching of a pkrson’s feet - a long-lived, but currently waning custom, An elderly woman may have her feet touched by her son or daughter yr by younger friends or relatives; for examplecAs well, beggars often touch the feet tif people they approach for alms. I felt uncomfortable when the latter happened to me while waiting for a bus one, day in 3ombay. Three or four young bedraggled children came to me with open hands and imploring eyes as they bent to touch and dust off my shoes. Their actions made me feel that I was very different from them. Was it my white skin, my western clothes or my camera that drew their attention, their respect? No doubt all of these factors combined. This show of respect did ilot touch my pride. Rather, it became clear that money was my most redeeming quality for these children. This respect for my supposed wealth somehow made my money feel dirty,

Money the most’ redeeming quality Often there seemed to be a fine line between begging and working in India* The big cities, the tourist areas, and the trains are the most common areas where beggars are found. I found that they were generally the same kinds of people who begged. There were elderly men and women, handicapped people and leper& ‘children and women with babes in arm. Some would aggressively beg by following us down the the street tugging on our clothes or come to our bus windows and beg-with their eyes and nodding heads. The more pagsive approach was to sit or lie at the edge of a path or street with malformed limbs exposed and a shaky hand held up. On’the other hand, children or women with babes would approach our auto rickshaws at a stoplight and offer to sell us obscure mini-newspapers. On the train, I remember a man with one leg entering our cabin and singing a song for about 30 seconds, after which it was expected we would give some coins. Small boys’would periodically enter ou,r second class car, sweep the dirt from under our feet, up and down the length of the car and then return

Not what you’d expect \ to each compartment to receive any coins we might offer. In these cases, an active effort is being made to exchange a service or talent for a few coins. it wasn’t straight begging, but yet it didn’t seem like the activity could be called a job. Then again, this is my cultural bias, I have been brought up in North American society to see a job as one in which I’m either em- I, ployed or one in which a special, pfactised skill is offered to those who are interested, like selling art or jewelry on the streets of Toronto, These enterprises reveal an amazing sense of resourcefulness in the people, but underneath lies an ugly sense OF urgency , and dire necessity for thousandsof people in the cities. ,Many of these people are selling balloons, glasses of cold.water or spyro-gyro pictures, earning a mere Rupees lo-15 ($l.OO-$1.50) per day to feed their families. Many are landless labourers who can no Itinier find w&k on the farms in their villages, .

Amazing smge of resourcefulness Contrasting this tragic dimension of life is the comic. Not only is there a feeling of goodwill, hospitality and overall warmth from Indian people, but also a high degree of humour. While walking through the Lakaar Bazaar of Simla town one afternoon, a group of us came across a small cloth-wrapped item on the ground. A couiple of us bent down to pick it up but found that it was stuck to the ground. He pulled and pulled but it remained firmly attached. We figured it was1 held down by some sort of sticky material, and so we continued on our way. Upon return along the same path we came upon the approximate same location but discovered instead a wallet. None of us reached down for it, though we all wondered if and what connection there was between it and the ppe+iOus’ item. Upon passing+ it we ehcOUntered several shop owners giggling and laughing as they looked past us, back from where we came. We turned and there, was a young shopkeeper bent over the wallet liammering a nail through it. His shop was exactly opposite the point and no doubt he had gleaned great pleasure in first watching us attempt to pick up the cloth and then us later staring wondering why there ’ was now a wallet in its place! Time for pranks, time for laughter. The day is not only one in which “X” number of rupees were collected. Another common, and terrifying, prank is played on all city people by the auto rickshaw drivers. I consider them to be the e&t ly Indian equivalent of airborne Japane %e Kamikaze pilots! The rickshaw men careen down the city streets weaving in and out of the tiaffic, vehicular and human alike+ Often, when there is a lone piedestrian fearfully and cautiously surveying the street up and down preparing to cross it, a rickshaw drijer will hit the gas and aim straight for the pedestrian; The rule is to just keep walking, as hesitation would no doubt be the death of at least thepedestrian.

he evening on the way to the Maurya ‘Palace Sheraton Hotel in New Delhi our driver was-humming a song as he leaned far -into the curves on the roundabouts while we held onto the steel bars for dear life. He spotted a victim and headed straight for him at top speed. I hid my eyes unable to watch [there was no stopping this thrill seeker), hoping that the “Wheel ofl’Life4‘ of the rickshaw and the pedestrian, were both in the “living“ phase! Through my squinted eyes and from between my fingers I saw us safely pass the man. Upon glancing back through the.rear window of the rickshaw I saw only the man staring at us in shock as his back was arched into a “C” shape! We had just missed him, though no doubt his clothes had been ruffled as we went by. We stepped down from this roller coaster ride and into B world of firecrackers, music and copious amounts of food and drink as two rich families fern Bombay and Delhi wedded their son and daughter in a five-star hotel. Our driver had warmed us up to our intended entertainment for’ the night. . India has a mixture of Indian and English phrases, slogans an,d advertisements. The cities are filled with large and small billboards. The ones I remember most clearly were two in Bombay. One said “Jaywalking is,a shortcut to the morgue.” The other read “Urban commandment: Neither a polluter nor a pollutee be.” How could such slogans of discipline and rules apply, when chaos and c_acophony are induced bjr the very phrase on the back of most trucks- and auto rickshaws, “Horn O.K. please”? Indians generally drive with one. hand permanently fused to the horn. And what could have been more appropriate than seeing an advertisement for “Hotel Aroma“ in Bombay city tihere air pollution, combined with other street smells like urine, sandalwood, bidi smoke, and betel nuts fill the air. In the city trains of Bombay. and at the focal train stations I saw a rather shocking advertisement. It said “Painless abortions for Rs 70 [$7). YOU can be home in just two hours!“ It sounded as easy and painless as a haircut. Mystery and romance. Two overused words in North Atierican Harlequin Romance books, .but two very appropriate words to describe aspects of India. Jodhpur is, the “blue city“ of Rajasthan. As one stands at.op the Meherangarh Fort upon the city‘s major hill, and loolis cut over the city of 750,000 people below, one observes the blueness of many houses. These houses are owned by the Brahmins or priests. According1y, their houses are painted a deeper or lighter blue depending on whether they aye higher or lower caste. It’s a beautiful sight accompanied by the varied sounds of life drifting upward playing children, mooing cows, barking dogs, movie music and chiming bells. And - so one evening three of us went for a walk into this rather enchantedcity/The streets were dark as pitch as there were no street lights.

I wanted to speak to any one of them, but any direct look back at them at that point scared them off. I think many didn‘t even realize how long they were looking at us. I too was curious about many of the villagers especially. The clothes and jewelry the men and women of Rajasthan wore, truly intrigued me. But my North American upbringing reminded me that it was considered rude to stare, so I looked at them only when they weren’t looking, or from the corner of my eye: Eventually however, I asked myself why I too couldn‘t look directly at them as they were at me. One afternoon we went to Lake Pushkar, Rajasthan. Upon returning to our bus, I came across another bus outside of which were standing perhaps 15 village women. They were dressed in reds and mauves, with silver jewelry of all description - bracelets and anklets, silver flower nose rings attached by chains to earrings, -large and small, silver rings on their fingers and fascinating faces - smile lines, wrinkles and deep brown eyes. One woman was braiding the hair of another. I found myself drawn to them. The colours of their clothes, the tinklingsounds of the silver jewelry, the chatter - where did

No sooner had this image appeared to me, but a man-oh a decorated white horse suddenly galloped by! Where did he come from? Cut! Stop action! Take two! The camera wasn‘t rolling! Magical. We stopped and stared. All three of us saw it, It wasn‘t a film scene. It wasn’t a dream. It was real. And why not? This is India. Anythihg and everything seems to happen @e. Many Indians in India have never seen a white person before, let alone 14 of them clustered together. Often times we were surrounded and stared at by men, women or children. Such a reaction to us often made us quite self-conscious - about our whiteness, our clothes, the items we carried - and perhaps a little embarrassed. But it w&s a curious kind of stare. Who were we? Where did we come from? Why are we here - in India, in this state, in this

The morning I awoke on my last day in Simla in the snow-capped Himalayas of the north, I buried my head deep under the covers; I tried to shut out the reality of my return to Delhi to prepare for my departure back to Canada. I had grown very fond of India - it‘s crazy chaos, its beautiful village people, its deliciously cold drinks of yogurt and roseweter, and its wild peac0ck.s and proud camels, present in daily’ life, among everything else. I felt hysically healthy, I felt more comforta%le with the ways of the people and I felt the need to learn even more about its tremendous bpeadth of culture. I did experience the ugly part of India, as in any country, that I expected to see from what 1 media had fed me. But / North American that is not what would stay with me. Rather the fantastic mirage of India’s people and life activities will forever return in my dreame and memories of the country.

#Dancers s.izz)e’at the HUM by Renate Sander-Regier Imprint staff Despite a rather dry beginning, Leii Ballets Jazz de Montreal eventually sizzled in the Humanities Theatre on September”% The opening number, a sultry duo entitled La Femme uux Talons Hauts (Woman in High Heels], was performed by Lise Bernier and Cassel J. Miles to Tom Waits’s mellow This One’s From the Heart. Miles was actually seated during the first half of the performance, smoking and watching Bernier execute a technically impressive but somewhat long solo. ‘Things livened up when he joined her, but I was glad that the piece ended when it did. _.

“Australia still affects our kinusic very much” .

by Chris Wodekau Imprint staff.

Songs about love and relationships are a dime per ten dozen; good songs about love and relationships are no big deal, either. So just what is it about The GoBetweens that make; them so special? What is it about an Australian pop group in their thirties who sing about the things we all talk about in the most casual, everyday conversation that makes them haunt the memory with Iingering images and subtle pop hooks long after the last Cult guitar riff has forever evaporated from your brain? And more to the point, how is it that a band of such throat-lumping passion, beauty, and lyrical brilliance can go virtually unknown in this hemisphere? Some ‘pretty’ weighty matters to mull over and who better to interrogate than singer/lyricist/guitarist Robert Forster? So, Rob, tell-me about the early days back in Australia’when it was just the three of you (drummer Lindy Morrison and cosinger/lyricist/guitarist Grant MoLennan -a lineup that would last until the addition of bassist Robert Vickers after 1982’s Before Hollyvkod)? “We got together in Brisbane which is our hometown in Australia and we just knew each other, That was in 1978.

I always will.” But there comes a time when a band intent on making a viable living out of musio has to make certain career moves. Like Canada, Australia is a pretty unforgiving country towards independent music. The sprawling geography and sparseness of the population, not to mention the lack of B rabid music press supportive of independent talent, make compfehensive record distribution a near impossibility and touring an endless crosscountry trudge spending nights

by Paul Done Imprint staff Rap has made a commercial breakthrough over the last year with the success of Run-DMC, then the Beastie Boys, and now with LL Cool J. The record label which has been involved in each of these successes is Def Jam in existence for less than half a decade, but has already attained a near-legendary status. Both the Beasties and Cool J are signed to Def Jam, while RunDMC are managed by Def J&m’s Rush productions and are produced by Rick Rubin, who has produced the majority of the records released on Def Jam. I’ Def Jam has near-single-hand-edly fused the pyrotechnics and noise value. of Hip-Hop and heavy metal into something far more accessible to a white audience than conventional rap. The noise value inherent in this meeting and the profound way it has influenced rappers, even those who hate rock ‘n’ roll, has he1 ed prish rap into an unassai Pable. position as the most challenging, adrenaline-charged music being made. This noise aesthetic is helped by an’aatute feel for the sure-fire novelty Iike Run-DMC’s Walk This Way or The Beasties Fight. For Your Right. Further, Def Jam lias not stagnated and fallen behind, a danger especially acute in rap where records can solind aged and old in a -mere six months. Thus, though the same formula had worked for Run-DMC’s Rairing Hell and The Bastie Boys’ Licensed To Ill, LL Cool J’s Bigger and Dsfbr moved ahead, leaving the already dated formula fir behind. In celebration. of this last 12 months, Kick It! The Daf Jam SampI&, has been released. Concentrating on the less wellknown acts on Def Jam, Kick It! contains a few obscurities which make it well worth the importDriced bucks. The singly most desirable track on the compilation is Rock A

Here The Word and Sardines, the two sides of their only single are segued into six and a half minutes of Go-Go madness. Original Concept are perhaps Def Jam’s most underrated group, despite two excellent singres Bitin’ My Styl&e and Can You Feel It; they remain unknown -j this might be because their best song; Pump That Bass, is buried on the B-side of Bitin’ My Stylee. Kick It! attempts to rectify this situation by the inclusion of two tracks Can You Feel It and Pump\That Bass I . . hey Def J&m! how’s about an Original Concept L,P soon! For much of it’s length, Kick Ii is as pure a noise assault as has been put on’ record. Ultimate stupid fresh!

Da Vinci models work! by Renete Sender-Regisr Imprint staff Renaissance Science Center Leonardo da Vinci would probably roll over in his grave if he saw this title attributed to anixhibition of models constructed according to his original sketches. Or maybe he wouldn’t, The mind that came up with the sort of mechanisms currently on display at UW’s Theatre of the Arts Gallery,- might be open to the idea of his works constituting a Science Center. Leonardo da Vinci, probably best known for his painting Mona Lisa, [one of the most popular attractions of the Louvre in Paris] merits just as much recognition for his achievements in the field of science. This same realization perhaps led IBM to the idea of sponsoring a travelling exhibition of models made from da Vinci’s sketches. The models were built in 1948 by Dr. A. Guatelli and are owned by IBM. The collection, ‘which will apparently no longer be traveiling, is a part of IBM’s cultural contribution to Canada. According to gallery adminis trator Earl Stieler, the University of Waterloo is and will be the only outside gallery -to exhibit the models since they were taken off the road for refurbishment two years ago, The pieces, delivered by IBM complete with panels, signs, and everi live plants;blend harmoniously ‘into the decor of the gallery, They take up a lot of space, but since they line only one wall the floor isn’t too crowded. *The craftsmanship of the models is ito be tidtiired. Not only db they look nice, they also work!

A catalogue, also rovided by is available at tphe entrance. It provides background information on Leonardo da Vinci and explains the models. If you can’t figure out how a certain mechanism functions, ask whichever of the attendants is on duty. They have been briefed on each piece. Neti gallery hours are II a.m. to 4 p,m. Mon. to Fri., and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sun. Admission is free.

You can push, pull or turn various handles, and watch the mechanisms go through their motions. A copy of da Vinci‘s original sketch, as well as an illustration of the present-day application, accompany each model. Pieces such as “Helicopter”, “Military and ‘Machine Gun” Tank”, evoke certain images in the mind. Wait until you see Leon‘ardo’s version!

toberfest season has just begun in Kitchener-Waterloo. While most people are out getting acquainted with beersteins and festhalls on Saturday night; The Backdoor is putting on some alternative entertainment with a non-alcoholic bar and three hardcore bands, Two-Fisted Law, Drips Under Pressure, and local favourites, The Nun-% fuckers. The Backdoor, which is actually the downstairs of the Metro Tavern, was waiting until the dirndled and feather-capped Oktoberfesters cleared out of the Tavern upstairs so that the bands could turn their music up loud. So about 8:3Q, the anxious crowd was let in out of the chill evening for $5 into the low-ceilinged, but warm basement3 First up on the bill was Two: Fisted Law, a loose band- with interchangeable guitarists and at least three different singers, none of whom really captured the crowd’s attention. In fact the rhythm guitarist had to leave, but fortunately, the bassist had been shown the chords just in case. Two-Fisted Law needs to develop a more distinctive ‘sound, rehearse a hell of lot more, and find a charismatic 4 leader, otherwise they’ll never be ‘more th an local noise. The _ only vocals I rememb8r were the words, “Fuck off!” - needless to say anything further really. ’ I Saturday night was the second gig for The Drips Under Press&e but they sounded surprisingly tight and clear. The crowd was all attention as they watched Rick, The Drips’ singer, tiark out his vocals, looking like a junior Johnny Rotten with his red plaid pants, green jersey and tufted blonde hair. ’ The Drips had some good

change-up material in their IZsong set, including a catchy tunecall;d i Don’t I&e Anything with the chorus, “Oi;Oi, Oi,” like something out of an AC/DC album. The Dripe’ guitarists, Lake and Mike, explain their name and lyrics come from their basic starid against education, the police, capitalism, and the government. They believe that their music should be aggressive enough to create a new establishment rather than try to modify the old+ “Oi!” And at abolit 9:45, The Nunfuckers appeared in the little opening that was the stage area. The crowd crammed all the way back to the staircase and as far front as the NF’a amplifiers to see this band perform. The Nunfuckers roared through asolid 40 minutes of skate-punk thrash with an occasional leap and crash from Rob, the singerjacrobat when there was enohgh room. About halfway in the set, the band urged people to dance, so the chairs were trashed and piled in the back so the crowd could slam while the band jammed. But the dancing got a bit *excessive and the audience almost absorbed the band several times. To close the evening, the NF’s* encored with Hendrix classics, Purple Haze and Fire. Talking with a couple of The Drips outside after the gig, I found out there’s going to be an indie tape compilation with all three of the bands on it. It’s scheduled to be available for consumers by early January. The crowd, bands, and promoter considered the evening a success and The Backdoor will continue to put on alteinati‘ke music shows every Saturday night. Tomorrow riight, you can see Garden Bower and Tree Frogs, And in the future, watch fpr Shadowy Men From A Shadowy Planet.

Red-hot Warriors run awaywith , by

John Gonoe _

At Delaware Park in beautiful downtown Buffalo last Saturday, the Waterloo Warriors cross country team won the gold, medal at the Canesius College Invitational meet. The Warriors are now the number-two ranked team in Canada. UW’s Harvey Mitro, took the’ individual gold medal, finishing

the 5.5-mile loop in a qujck 27:08. Mitro beat pre-race favourite Ken Dubois of the University of Detroit, a perennial All-American. UW’s Nick Cipp continued )sis streak of outstanding performances with a third place finish. Other Warriors who competed ‘were Kevin Shields, 7th, Tim Rose, llth, Shamir Jamal, 14th, --Dave Lapham-, 25th, Sean

Soccer Warrich. desperate for, win by Tim Walker Two weekends ago (Oct.3 and 4) the soccer Warriors had their most successful weekend in three years as they beat the Ryerson Rams 3-0 and tied the M&laster Marauders 1-1. These three points put the Warriors back into the hunt for a playoff spot also for the first time in three years. The Warriars finished that weekend with a 2-3-L record good for six points and a share of third place. started slowly 1 The Warriors against the Rams, who have no points in OUAA competition, and only led 1-O at half time on a CarIds Burmeister goal. In the second half the Warriors took control of the game and scored twice more. Upen’Kawale scored on a delightful chip shot and Peter Straub scored on a penalty kick with time. running out to complete the scoring. Although happy with the result the-coaching staff was worried- about the team’s slow start to the game. The team was instructed to come put much faster the following day against McMaster. The team did as instructed and scored midway through the first half when Paul Knafele scored on a breakaway. Unfortunately, the team then began to give &Master more room to maneuver in the second half and the Marauders took advantage scoring the equalizer with only a few minutes left. Once again the

Warriors .dropped points- to a less talented team due’to lapses in concentration, The soccer Warriors trsvelled to Brock October 7 to meet the Badgers. After having beaten Brock 1-O in the season opener the Warriors were looking for another two points at Brock. The Warriors, however, came out aaleep .and allowed Bpock to take the game to Waterloo, This pressure led to a Badger goal on ,a long shot early in the first half. Things began to look u for Waterloo when a Brock p Yayer was ejected for disputing, too vehemently, the referee’s decision concerning an altercation with Warrior defender Wart Rotundo (Scott Robinson]. This sending off only served to make the Badgers more determined as they scored in the minute following the expulsion. The first half ended with the Warriors dowri 2-o. ' The Warriors completely dominsted the second half but the B&k goalie was equal to the task. He went so far as to save a Waterloo penalty shot, albeit a poorly taken one. The final score was 2-0 for a Brock team that was just more fired up on the day than the Warriors were. This loss left the Warriors at 2-4-2 and desperarely in need of a couple of wins in their next two games. The Warriors will have played at Leurier by the time this is published. They meet the Guel h Gryphons at Guelph on Otto ii er 18 at 1 p.m.

b$ Peter Brown Imprint staff Th,q Waterloo rugby side played their -best game of the season October 10, but still came up short against b close1 matched University of Guelp ii team 16-7. Mistakes were minimized, but still cropped ‘up at the worst moments. And the officiating-was as inconsistent as it always is in the GUAA, withone mind-bogglingly incompetent call costing the Warriori at least four points. The big improvement this day was execution. Waterloo succeeded at their game plan for the most part, but lost excellent field position and plenty of momentum on crucial mistakes. In recent weeks, Waterloo:s disadvantage in player size -meant that the most. they could hope for in the strums was holding their own. On Saturday, however, parity was the word as both packs found footholds in . the cold turf. The Warriors dominated most of the rucks, but thjs advantage was repeatedly negated by curiously numerous referee whistles whenever Waterloo was moving the ball.

Both teams agreed upon one red jerseys within arm’s thing: the poor quality of offiwasn’t enough visual ciating in the game.

The UW basketball dynasty of the mid-‘80s is just a-memory now. A few remnants remain, but in the vicious cycle of player turnovers, the look must turn to youth and * the future. This point hit home last season, when the Warriors+ after four consecutive trips- to the CIAU Final Four, including three championship game appearances, were bounced in first round playoff action. No doubt, many diehard souls were heard muttering, “Ah, I remember the days when Savich and Norris , . . “ True. With the departure of legend Peter Savich, 7’0” Randy Norris, and sixth men Harry Van Brunen and Willie Boggild, the ’ Warriors suddenly lost the depth that earned them an excursion to Halifax every March. The fortunes of the 86-87 Warriors seemed to always end up in the able hands of All-Canadian Paul Boyce and OUAA All-Star Rob Froese. “1 know people were disap; pointed with tis last season,” said head coach Don McCrae. “But we were not a strong team, we had-little bench strength &d

we relied on too few people.” Now, with Boyce joining S& vich on the UW Wall of Fame, the idea af a well-balanced attack becomes even more crucial: McCrae obviously had that in mind when he went shopping at Ontario’s’high-schools last winter. His travels have attracted so much new talent that a junior vareity squad will operate this season. McCrae will unveil his new project tomorrow night (Saturday) at the PAC, when the varsity Warriors take on the K-W Titans at.8 p.m. The Titans have ddded Bo ce to their already formidable r ine-up which has established them as one of men’s t earns. Ontario’s to t rl e junior varsity Meanwhile+ squad will be in a tournament at Conestoga College, playing to-’ night at 8:30, and tomorrow ‘at f&30 and 4. . Cne place where depth won’t be a problem is at guard Back for their fourt& year as a starting tandem are veterans Froese and Tom’Schneider, Froese has been a 1eading’OUM scorer throughout his carier, while Schneider was destined for a&star status in 86-87 until felled ,by injuries.

The Warriors have enough talent here to give a couple of other teams a starting guard. Much of McCrae’s ‘hopes for this seaa’on rest on his big ‘men. He hopes to use his bulkier front court to mount what was an almost nonexistent inside game last season. Headhg the list is fifth-year - defensive specialist, 6%” Ja@e .McNeill. He’s joined by sophomores 6’8” Pat Telford and 6’5” John Clark, two players who will spend less time on the bench in 87-88, As McCrae said,“1 hope the big guys can divide the time -up equa11 ’ We hope we can run at g T ass and become more the agressive this year.” New additions at this position include 6’8” Dave Rosebush from Toronto and the currently sidelined 8’8” Paul Doucette from Oshawa. other centre$, --~-~ Two who. for the time being will start on the junior varsity iquad, are 8’6”, 225 lbs.

The second ‘name against Western was quite different. The Mustangs’ chippy play cost them dearly as UW scored two power play goals in the first quarter in building a 3-2 lead. In addition, two Western players fouled out, one of them in the first quarter. By the end of the third quarter, UW was ahead 8-5. The team then suffered a letdown as fatigue took its toll. Defensive lapses allowed Western to catch up andeventually tie the game with 2:09 remaining. UW then had three consecutive prwer lay chances, only to be stymied f!ty poor pass; ,ing and ill-considered shooting, allowing Western to steal the tje. Leading the scoring parade with

Riotball Warriors fumble .their -way to an O-4l record by Refton

RI&

and Paul Msikle Waterloo’8 football Warriors were again trounced by a better team October 8; this time it was the Cuelph. Gryphons ‘winning 48-8. The loss drop8 the hapless Warriors to 0-5, and marks the. third anniversary of winless football. Many considered this to be the worst performance by the club this season. It was a poor performance for the special teams and the linebacking crew. The Gryphons were able to run as they pleased, using long marches consisting of quarterback draws and offen.sive guard and tackles stunting, leading their running backs to daylight. Waterloo’s offence spent much of the evening on the sidelines, the result of their continuous miscues and interceptions. The extent of the offence’s inability to move the football resulted in their amassing a mere 30 yards in total offence for the first half. ’ Unlike some previous weeks, the Warriors were never a factor in this game. From the opening series the %Gryphons were in command, taking a 9-O ‘lead by . the end the first quarter thank8 to a long touchdown drive and a safety on a Waterloo punt attempt.

Gamebreaker and two-way player RIchard Chen was able to have success on both sides of the football, He scored a touchdown on a pas8 play from quarterback Mike Wright and picked off a Guelph pass. Defensive back8 Larry Vaughn and Brad K&ye also had interceptions. This. was the result of a strong game by the entire defencriva secondary. Linebacking on the otherhand was almost non-existent as the offensive stunts used by the Gryphons kept th,e defensive team guessing.
