National PSE forum called fruit----5 The forum has been criticized for not being specific enough. Right now, the federal government foots 89 per cent of the national post-secondary education bill through educational transfer payments. The funding system is called Established Programs Financing (EPF). Some form or another of the EPF has been in place since 1977. The notion that education is a provincial responsibility i s flawed since 89 per cent (or between $4 and $5 billion dollars) of annual PSE funding comes directly from the federal government. The reality is that the federal government gets no political credit, he said. Unfortunately for the university and college community, the

The federal/provincial funding arrangement for post-secondary education is an insane scheme says Federation of Students President Ted Carlton. Carlton's remarks came following his return from Saskatoon where he was a student representative at the National Forum on Post-Secondary Education. The co-sponsored federal and provincial conference set an agenda to address the challenges and opportunities facing postsecondary education (PSE); the issue of PSE accessibilitv: and the management and financial side of PSE.

Ontaris government has annually reduced its contribution to education in the province because the federal government has at the same time been picking up the economic slack for Queen's Park, said Carlton. Federal transfer payments to the provinces are based on economic indexes. This system allows for the neutralizing of inflation and other negative economic effects; yet, it has backfired. In Ontario, reducing the provincial contribution to universities and colleges is done to fund other political objectives of a higher priority. Any federal input on how the provinces ought- to fund higher education is seen as a constitutional intrusion. Doug Wright. Continued on page 3

Curtain closes on pro!fessionaItheatre by Brian Holmes The curtain will be drawn on live professional theatre at the University of Waterloo next year following a n announcement from the UW Arts Centre that it will no longer comnlission outside performances on campus. Officials say student access to the theatres in Hagey Hall and Modern Languages is being hindered by an excess of professional shows.

Since it was launched 22 years ago the professional entertainment program has earned UW a reputation a s a respected stop on the touring circuit of Canadim talent. The program has evolved to the point that attendance w a s in excess of 30,000last year. The decision to cut the program "makes sense to me." said drama depa~tmenthead William student. includChadwick, ing drama department, dema?d for the space has ir


When asked if he thought that drama students would be affected by the lack of professional theatre on campus, Chadwick pointed out that "students weren't going in great numbers." Chadwick also expressed concerns that the UW was subsidizing the theatre for something that he says w a s really not auniversity function. Similarly, Robert Montieth, Acting Manager of the UW Arts Centre, was quotzd in an area paper as saying, . . in recent years. students found it increasingly difficult to get access to the facilities." But there's also a


sense that the decision was in part financial. Although Dean of Students Ernie Lucy has denied that financial considerations were the main reason for the change, he said, "there is the feeling that the money can be used for other, more demanding purposes." Lucy also noted publicly that the move could mean cost savings of about $150,000annually. House Manager Peter Houston agrees: "I have a feeling it is more economical." There are several groups that officials expect may benefit from the October 28 decision. These include the Federation of Stu-

dents' Creative Arts Board, FASS, and the Drama Department. However, according to Houston, CAB has not used the theatres a great deal. For this season, the board has only one major production planned. Hayfever. which is scheduled for early December. CAB has traditionally operated out of other venues, including Fed Hall and the Bombshelter. FASS, meanwhile, performs one show per year, early in the winter term.

Fate of CFS? by Mike O'Driscoll Imprint staff

UW students will go to the polls on November 9 and 10to decide the fate of Waterloo's membership in the Canadian Federation of Students. The referendum will, in effect, hand over the final ruling in a seven-year old dispute between the CFS and UW's Federation executive to the students themselves. The referendum arises from a n out-of-court settlement between the CFS and Feds following a suit and counter-suit over membership fees. The problem originated when the National Union of Students was restructured as the CFS in 1981.Waterloo did not move to make the organizational switch, because of executive in-fighting, until 1984.At that point. former president Tom Allison made a motion that NUS fees be held back. NUS, by then managed by the CFS, sued, the Feds counter-sued, and it wasn't until June of 1988 that the dispute was resolved. The agreement reached specifies that the NUS and the Feds are "equally to blame for the unfortunate situation." It also calls for the Feds to join the CFS as prospective members and to have a full membership referendum before March 31, 1988. NUSICFS will cover $1,500of the expenses incurred in running the referendum. All UW students are eligible to vote. each faculty 3---- to -- has ap*.pd monitor a polling station Yn its respective area. For the inside story on why UW students should, or shouldn't, vote to maintain Waterloo's membership in the CFS, turn to page 5.


of stability is necessary in the neighbourhood and the conversions to rooming houses must stop. "We are not against students". said Bruce Hunsberger, a residents spokesman, "in fact the majority are a credit to the neighbourhood, but the saturation point has been reached. We are asking the City of Waterloo to make a decision as to the future of this neighbourhood." Skinner, however, said, "a rezoning of the area is discriminatory to students. Such a move would involve zoning by the number of people instead of by the property." Residents should utilize existing noise,parking,and appearance bylaws to maintain the standard of their community, she said. With 5,000 UW students currently renting housing off campus and a 10 per cent increase in student population expected next year, student representatives are concerned that the housing problems will only grow. City council referred the proposal to its technical co-ordinating committee for recommendations. A reply is due within four weeks. Alderman Andrew Telegdi said the city is aware of student needs and will continue to pursue housing options for students. A meeting between student representatives from UW and WLU, aldermen, and residents is scheduled for November 10.

Desfperation. Dear “Desperate”: NO, I am not a Vietnam vet. I have a good friend who lost both legs in a stupid little firefight in the Mekong Delta. When 1 met this guy [he was living in the farm he’d built on land he’d homesteaded after the war -in Oregon), 1 marched right up and said, “I’m a drafttdodger, who went to Canada, then 19 years later came back to stand trial and got three years.” And he said, “I respect that.” And right away we had this in common: he went to Vietnam, I didn’t, but both of us spent some of the best years of our lives dealing with that horrid “police action.” So, whether or not I qualify to answer you, here goes. We all know we’re just fungus on a dying star, and that everything is transient, nothing lasts, Nothing is intrinsically worthwhile, except the one thing, and the one thing is whatever we decide to do, be, identify ourselves with. Not everyone has This choice, which we might call a vocational dilemma, but YOUdo, by virtue of living in a more or less free, and certainly affluent, society. If, for example, you lived in the Soviet Union, in the thirties, chances are the one thing would have been decided.for you. The odds -are one in 19 that you would have been ina forced labour camp, and.thit would have been the objective reality against which you must struggle. Or, if you were a Soviet male during the forties’the o&is are one you would have served in the army, where you would have.a four to one chance of surviving. And so on, for different places at different periods in history. The nearly unique thing about the West, especially Canada, at this time, is the freedom of cho-

ice we have an almost unprecedented, sometimes frustrating, smorgasbord of selection - in how to spend our time and what to do with ourselves’. This baffling variety of Lpossibilities is especia]]y evident in university, where one may choose whatever course of study one decides on. In other words, you select your own strait-jacket. Or so it &ems, once the initial choice is made. First, there is all choice, then there is none. One is bewildered by the possibilities, then traumatized by the pressures. Sometimes, between bewilderment and traumatization, one feels desperate. It should come as no surprise that, within this . situation - we’re talking now of being in the middle of the muddle of one’s university “career” many students try to abdicate responsibility. They blame the administration, they blame their *professors, they blame their parents+ their roommates, the society in whose stranglehold they feel themselves to be. When, really, as Pogo says, “We have seen the enemy, and he is us,” It’s all that freedom, that’s where it began, and it ends - for you, for me, for mankind, which since the end of World War TWO has hadthe choice of whether or not to bl&w itself sky-high. If nothing is intrinsically worthwhile, nothing matters. It’s up to you to choose what you will invest meaning in,’ and whatever you choose becomei the one thing for y&. For Soge it+s’a vodation, for others a place, for yzt others, who are sick of what they are doing or bored by it all, it’s’ a hobby, or a sport. It can be anything! But it can’t be nothing. If there is a rule, that’s it, It’s all or nothing, and it’s up to you, Good luck! . (The Rev. Dr. Tom York is United Church’ Choplain t0 UW and WLU. His office is at St. Paul’s College.) .d

In regards to educational access, Chadwick said, “the decision to cancel the program will not make much difference to the drama department since it has already been operating almost completely out of the Theatre of the Arts.,’ Houston, however, suggests that “some ,other groups, with encouragement, might find ways to use it.” In addition, the theatres are still available for rental by -outside agents, and the rental policy has not yet been changed. Suggestions have been made that the theatres be d’used as classroom lecturi halls. However, Chadwick says this would only be possible “provided tve were vefy cautious about it.” He noted that afternoon and evening classes would. conflict with production schedules, and that the theatres are “very valtiable, very expensive assets” whose use as an open-doored lecture hall “is out of the question.” Houston said the decision will also affect the 40 to 50 part-time student ushers and technical personnel. “We’ll have to have some (part-time staff),” he said, but the need will be reduced and the hours of work will be considersbly fewer. Officials have also indicated that the eight full-time employees of the Art8 CenRre will be absorbed by the university in other capacities.

Other than financial concerns, the Saskatoon forum was the first time in 20 years the federal government indicated an interest in higher education. The issue of Ottawapaying*an 89 per cent share in the costs of education while being Tendered constitutionally impotent in its influence was not part of the agenda. “The most I could see in my workshop was a need for a federal/provincial group to administer,” Carl ton said. Refering to the peculiar federal/proviticial funding of colleges and universities, Wright commented, “there were easier things for the crowd to occupy themselves with.” Ottawa receives no political benefit and excercises no influence. They have two choices: make a bid for more influence or reduce their financial burden. The federal government is opting for the latter choice, Wright said. Because of the number of forum participants, (mare than 400), consensus was predisposed to failure. What did come out of the meeting was the.genera1 agreement that Canada is lagging behind many countries in the area of higher education. The current trend of heavy emphasis on applied research as op-

posed to basic, fundamental research was ‘debated. The definition of a broad education was discussed as was the faculty’8 responsibility to the undergraduate, something that research can interfere with. Carlton admitted, “1 heard points of view I had never considered before.” Wright stated, “in my view there was not sufficient focus on

maintaining adequate undergraduate education and research.. I expected to be disappointed.” It is very improbable that such a group (more than 400 presidents of industry, teacher federation presidents, faculty, university administration, government officials, and students) would meet again, he said.

bylaw may survive \

Housing by Ralph Zuljan Imprint staff A Waterloo landlord says his efforts to fight city hall may have been wasted because he cannot affdrd the additional legal costs involved in the next appeal. UW’s Federation of Students has agreed to contribute $1,000 toward the appeal, expected to cost about $7,500, Ken Orser’s fight against an exclusionary bylaw one which limits the number of unrelated people allowed in a singlefamily residence to five - was financed by the Federation for the original court ‘case, which was won, and the subsequent appeal by the city, which was lost. According to Federation President Ted Carlton, a “strong intereat in housing” on the part of students last year prompted the original financing of the Orser’s fi ht. , R aving lqst when the city appealed, ‘the Orser’s requested an appeal of their own for which they spent $2,500. They were granted an appeal, so the Federation now has agreed to contribute again. So far, the Orser’s have not been able to raise the money. At the same time, Orser said he is losing about $1,000 in rent per month because the city will only allow three students to live in the house. Orser charges $250 per month for a single room, for each of the students living there now. The Orsers own their own business as well, and the income from it has been covering the

ards, and parking preclude the need for the bylaw he is challenging. If people ‘have complaints about his house, he said, they should ask the city to enforce these bylaws. He said his house meets ‘these regulations., and applying the single-family residence bylaw is “petty”. Kaye Crawford, of the city’s department, said the zoning Orser case is the only application of the single-family residence bylaw that she is aware of in the time she has worked for the City of WaterlooFurther applications of the bylaw, she said, must wait until the pending appeal is over. No particular cases were noted. According to Carlton, the number of people affected by the bylaw is minimal because only six to 10 houses have that many students living together. Waterloo Mayor Marjorie Carroll argued that the intent of the bylaw is to define a,single-family dwelling and that doing so protects the right of people to choose the kind of neighborhood they want to live in, There are bylaws which limit the location of apartments, and boarding houses. The objective is to prevent the misuse of a residential area. Carroll also pointed out that the Orser’s “neighbour’s com1

However the current appeal turns out, the area in which the Orser’s house is located will probably be considered for rezoning, said Carroll. A study to do so has been “held off’until the court case has been resolved, she said.

mance title, marking the first time a school from eastern Canada grabbed the highest honour at the competition. The reputation for Waterloo teams as traditionally being the most spirited school at the event was displayed by the 1986 team who, without their “toboggans” arriving on time,- walked away with top marks in three categories (most spirit, best uniforms, and most promising) at the race held in Calgary. Other UW teams have always ranked high in the gpirit class at past events. This year’s campaign promises to be the most adventurous for Waterloo as a group of 33 students plan on taking part. The design and work on the “concrete toboggans” was initiated earlier this term since each year teams must design new sleds that consist of concrete running surface, braking system, and room for five riders. The 113.64 kilogram (zsolbs.) crafts have been known to reach 50 kilometres an hour during their runs down snow and ice covered slopes. Thus a suitable design scheme that integrates practicality with polished appearance must be fabricated. Since financing of the campaign is dependent on the teams’ abilities to raise money-through corporate ‘sponsorq and fundraising events, organization and planning for the 1988 rack began Jate last qpring. Recently,’ the teams have been selling” raffle tickets for a microwave at vasious locations on campus. Tickets for the November 12 draw will be sold inlthe Campus Centre, Federation Hall, and by


the Carl Pollock Hall coffee shop. Other fund-raising activities to take place in near future will be a pub and another raffle. The 1988 Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race campaign is a growing tradition at the University of Waterloo. Last year’s teams compiled a “Concrete Tob-


oggan Bible” to pass on to aspiring civil engineering classes to ensure that spirited participation from this schooi will continue in the future. Support from the UW community at large will undoubtedly aid in upholding Waterloo’s high standing at the 1988 competition in Vancouver.

No: This is the only logical choice for Waterloo students in referendum. As a school we would be spending about $60,000 on CFS and we would represent 15,000 students. However, we will have only one vote at a CFS conference. Schools with 75 students would contribute $300 hut receive a vote equal to that of Waterloo. Until representation by population is established we can not fairly represent Waterloo students. We will join the ranks of the University of Toronto, Queen’s, Western, U. of British Columbia, U. of Calgary, U. of Alberta, and McGill who are not members of CFS. Remember: any possibility of implementing weighted voting would have to b.e voted on by the small schools. Ineffectiveness: As a lobby group CFS has not been effective, At last November’s forum, the governing party only sent one cabinet minister to listen to the CFS lobby, Why were the other ministers not prese,nt? Why did the House of Commons only address one question from the CFS lobby effort?

The existence of a‘national student movement in Canada depends upon the commitment of students working together for change. You will be asked to make that commitment next week and to support the Canadian Federation of Students. During the referendum, you should ask yourself two ques-


tions, One, is there a reason for the CFS? Two, is the CFS effective? The answer to the first question is a resounding “yes”. The federal government provides close to $8 Billion for post-Lsecondary education in Canada; more than 88 per cent of the funds in the Province of Ontario. Waterloo receives $21 million in research grants from Ottawa for professors, grads and undergrads. The,bulk of student loans come from the federal government. Finally the occurrence of the National Forum on Post-Secondary Education in Saskatoon is ti recognition of the national dimensions to the university system. Decisions made in Ottawa have a direct effect on the quality and.accessibility ‘of education at UW. CFS provides a focus for our concerns on education to the decision-makers in Ottawa. Is the CFS effective? Again, a strong yes. Changes to the student loans program, and’ the holding of the National Forum; presentations to Parliamentary committees studying the Meech Lake Accord, tax reform, employment and training, and student aid; meetings with the prime minister, the minister of finance, the minister Eesponsible for youth, the secretary of state and many members of parliament are all evidence of the successful. activity of .the Canadian Federation of Students. CFS is recognized in Ottawa as the voice of university and college students in this country and are informally consulted on a variety of issues by civil servants and politicians. To briefly address some concerns it should be noted that after this month’s general meeting the non-educational policies cited by the “non side will no longer be in place. As well, a proposal for weighted-voting will be introduced. UW students already have a voice in Queen’s Park through OFS, we need a voice in Ottawa through CFS. There is a common cause between students in this country in the fight for a high quality educational system and CFS is the means for advancing our cause. On November 9 and 10, say yes to CFS!



Continued from page 3 concerns to the regional committee two weeks ago to protest what they termed an element of “discrimination” in the allocation of funds. Present policy states that any couple with children are ineligible for daycare support if one of the parents is a graduate student, or if both parents are students. According to Heather Allsop, a graduate student and-mother of one, present daycare costs are simply to high for most students to afford, and the current system makes no allowanties for that. She noted that while many students are barely meeting ends, a two-parent family with three children can earn as much as $54,000 per year before being cut off. Similarly, a single-child family would have to top an annual income of $32,000 before becoming ineligible. “With




very generous, I feel that it’s not a fully fair system,” she said. Allsop added that if the system has to adjust to meet student needs, then the wage ceiling should be lowered. At the last preseritation the regional committee took no action because regional council had earlier decided not to change


Non-educational issues: Any CFS policy exists for five . years unless it is revoked, CFS has a number of non-educa- , tional issues that have been policy for a number of years. None of the current policies have been revoked and the bylaws of CFS allow any policies that expire to be presented at the November meeting this year, If renewed these policies would continue to exist as official policy and would be voted .on for another five.year term in March next year. Why has a six-year-old organization spent five years on these issues? Have you heard of CFS?: We have been prospective members for two -years. As prospective members we have had the rights of full members. Why has no one heard or seen CFS in the past two years? Now that they want big money; they’re on campus. Will we ever see them again? Do we want to waste money?: CFS keeps telling us that they may change. May is a very indefinite word. Do we want to keep putting money into this organization in the hope that they change? What happens if in two years they haven’t? We would have wasted more than $100,000 o’f your money.

Marie Stopes is considered to be the founder of British birth control: she also was dedicated to eugenics. Eugenics is the belief that the human race consists of both superior and inferior strains and that through sblective breeding the race can be perfected. Marie Stopes proposed a solution to-the problems addressed in her aforementioned quote: “. . . the sterilization of those totally unfit for parenthood made an immediate possibility. indeed made compulsory.” (Marie Stopes, Radiant Motherhood, London, 1920.) The Arts Library received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and from Kaufman Footware to purchase pamphlets, books, and the like, pertaining to Marie Stopes. The history of the acquisitions can be seen in the Marie Stopes display in the Arts Library basement. The display deals with her interests in botany, birth control, and eugenics. At an institute of higher learning, eugenics does deserve to be addressed and even studied, but not on the level that the library presents it . Eugenicists bre by nature racists, incredibly intolerant, and selfish. They are racists because they believe in the purity of the race; intolerant because-they hate those with physical disabilities; selfish because they refuse to use their money to help the less fortunate (or inferior, in eugenic terms.) Stope’s quote supports these claims. Birth control was the e6genic tool for cre:ting a pure race. By applying the artificial selection of birth control, the Eugenicists hoped to thwart the laws of natural selection. To present the eugenic attitude, then, on a purely indifferent level, is completely unjustified: the memoirs of P.W. Botha would never be presented in such a manner, even though he too advocates a pure race policy. The library’s introduction to the display claims “. . most hail [Stopes]; the pioneer of a movement that alleviated t-he misery of millions of people around the world.” I beg to contest the viability of this belief: not only have the instances of unwanted pregnancy not subsided due to birth control, but Marie Stopes openly advocated racism: again I refer to her quote. How spreading racism and intolerance of fhe physically disabled could be const’rued as alleviating misery, I have no idea. From the perspective of the display, then, perhaps the importance of the wheelchair entrance to the library ~ should be re-evaluated. 1,

One inore headache I- A follow-up

To the Editor,

I am writing this letter in defense and support bf the placement staff and co-ordinators of the co-opsystem. The “folks” at Needle’s Hall were unfairly criticized last week (Imprint Forum, October 23) by someone who provided them with one more unnecessary hbadache. Everyone participating on the co-op system is informed they must supply an adequate number of resumes according to how many jobs they apply to (most people tiould not have to be told this). Additional resumes may submitted to the receptionist at Needle’s Hall as are- re‘quired. The student in question

evidently was unable to keep track of the number of jobs he applied for and resumes submitted or else he simply was.forgetful. This resulted in not all his

companies receiving his resume. Now ask yourself what should be done in this case. Should a letter be sent that may take a week to reach you and a couple of days for .you to react, or should a staff, member spend countless hours phoning all the neglectful people, especially -when most students’ are at classes between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.? No. Needle’s Hall has deadlines to meet, and I agree with their policy of letting the responsibility rest on, the students’ shoulders for keeping the folders full of resumes. Needle’s Hall is not totally error free. From taking with friends I find that some students have been involved in mixups of some sort or another, and of course when considering employment all students want things done right. However, Needle’s Hall staff are up against

Hall. But I for one congratulate the staff. I ha?? had no complaints in mv dealinns with Needle’s Hall. Back to the student with no’ enough resumes. I feel that he’s merely looking for a scapegoat when he says of the staff that “their only job seems to be looking out for themselves and taking’ all the credit” - which really doesn’t make much sense anyway. Shamefully, we find out this particular student who attacks the staff at Needle’s Hall for his problems cannot even admit in his arti/cle that the whole shambles arose because of his own fault. .

To the editor, In response to Brian Zau’s letter _ of October 23, I am getting very tired of hearing and reading complaints about the co-op department. Studenjs obviously have no idea about how the department is run, what kind of workload is involved withhe co-ordinators, and what parts of getting a job are the students responsibility. Co-op students seem to expect to be spoon-fed and get a job handed to them on a silver platter,

once said that one death is a tragedy,

but a thousand deaths are just a number. If someone you know dies, someone close to you, it is a personal tragedy. When many people die, we hear about it through the media, and it loses some of its reality. i know intellectually that there is the rest of the world out there, but I don’t feel that it is real. Television news doesn’t really seem ’ to be any different than prime time shows, Deaths somewhereout there are not a personal tragedy. Every year, the University of Waterloo hosts the Mike Moier Memorial Game. Mike Moser was a basketball player at a time when’ Waterloo was basketball. He was good, bofh at basketball and being a person. He died suddenly while in the United States for a tournament; Not everybody knew him personally, but everybody knew of him. It was a tragedy, because he was just starting out. He had his whole life ahead of him, and it promised to be a good one. Everybody who was at Waterloo then felt the loss.-But we don’t get that same feeling about the teenagers, who are even younger than Mike Moser was, dying as martyrs in the Iran-Iraq

war. You can flip through the newspaper any time and of tragedies. In the “Around the World” section .of Mail, there was a short report of threepolicemen extremists in Amritsar.

public sector jobs - and keeping up their supply of resumes. Secondly,- co-ordinators are responsible for getting new jobs - job development - in very large areas. This involves travel, time, and a lot of paperwork. They are also responsible for students who are on their work terms and students who are looking for jobs. That isa lot of students, folks, so clue in co-ordinators do not have time to take you by the, hand and lead you to the job of your dreams. You are responsible for your part in getting a job, you should be actively working for yourself not sitting back and waiting for a job to- come knocking at your door, Take advantage of the services offered by the co-op department and realize that these are real jobs and this is a real job market - you must compete and you must sell yourself to an employer. Complacency and ridiculous expect ations of co-orditiators are not going to get you a job.

Condoms To the editor, The article in the October 23 issue of Imprint concerning condom machines has quite a number qf errors. First, the reason why Hyco was chosen over Nimble Nuts were as follows: i he condoms from Nimble Nuts are less reputable and perhaps less reliable. Also, we prefer the packaging of the Hyco variety. Next, about the testing of condoms that are to be sold on campus, they are not going to be tested by Dr. Barb ‘Schutiacher from Health and Safety, or anyone else. Dr. Schumacher was mentioned in relation to whether the thin variety of condoms offered by Hyco offers protection against the AIDS virus. Last is the question of when the condom machines will $e available. We do not expect them by November, that implies that they will be here on campus within a month. The date for condom machines is totally dependent on how busy the company is. . Michele Griffin For the Birth Control


to a t.alk about truth

To the editor, This is a follow-up article to expand on some of the points pursued in my last letter “In pursuit of the truth about humanity.” I recognize that homosexuality has existed throughout history, yet let’s look at the reasons why it has become such an issue of concern in the 1980’s. Androgyny originally meant being of both sexes - physically, Yet the term took on new dimensitins as I was taught about it in high school. At this time it was defined as a person who has traits or behaviors that we would classify to, have come from the different sexes. It was to be viewed as a good thing. It would mean that stereotypes would be dropped and. that healthy girls would play with trucks if she wished as well as dolls, and healthy boys would play with doils as well as trucks. This idea in itself has respectable qualities and its movement toward equality is admirable; yet, it avoids the issue of femininity and masculinity as if it has forgotten those qualities and their essential role in the lives of humanity. If we lose our femininity and masculinity, .(not in the stereotypical sense, but in the sense of there at least being some difference between the sexes), then we will

no lorlger be a source of attraction to each other. This fact perhaps explains the difficulty which males and females at, least in N,lrth America have experienced in be:ng together and staying together in 3 committed and long-lasting relal’onship. As well, it may explain oLr turning back toward our own sex to find those qualities which- we find so strangely lacking from l+e opposite sex. We, in the twentieth century appear to be in need of some guidance, especially concerning our relatidnships with’ the opposite sex. Biologically and evolut ionarily, the only way that human beings can truly become one, both physically and spiritually is in the ultimate act of reproduction. For in this act, we complete the cycle of nature: evolution. We have not been educated on how to be with each other. As a result, we have jeopardized the brotherly and sisterly relationship so precious between people of the same sex.

ties, not his dedication



Over the past two weeks, a number of articles have appeared in the Imprint applauding the action of the Waterloo football play* ers in voting against their head coach, Bob &lcKillop. I feel it is time that this action be looked at in a different light. s Instead of pointing-the finger at McKillop, perhaps. the players shbuld have pointed it at thpmselves. In my opinion, the coaches can not be held responsible for mistakes that are made on the field. For example, when receivers run the wrong route or drop a pass, or when defensive backs are beaten deep. Is that the fault of the coaches? I think not. In most situations, another plaver would step in and play, At -Waterloo, however, that luxury does not exist. The Warriors are nearly forced to do or die with their starting players. Beyond these players, the team has very little depth. Is this also the fault of the coaches who have only been able to recruit effectively for the past two years? Surely the problem lies not just with the’coaching st.aff, but with the administration and players as well. While I amglad to see that the player’s ac’tions have linally brought about a review of the football program (Foot ball program under review, Imprint, Oct. 23), I am sorry it had to come at the expense of Bob McKillop’s job and reputation. Clearly, the players and administration must shoulder more of the blame than they have to date. My purpose

This i,s it! The Grad”1 is in. For many of you, today is the long awaited day in which you finally get a chance to work for the company of your choice. For others, the Grad 1 could be a big disappointment. If the number of opportunities in your field are less t ban. you imagined, don’t despair - there are opportunities out there, but it’s up to you to find or make them. Some 80 per cent of jib openings are never advertised because advertising is expensive, time consuming, and can be unproductive. Managers often hire people who already work within the company or have been referred to them by colleagues. Because of this you must use you initiative,,and rtisourcefuir2ess to look. for jobs in the hidden job market. The following approaches may help you find a job. I) Networking: Tell everyone you know friends, relative’s, acquaintances, that you are looking for a job. Don’t be afraid to approach former employers. They may have an opening for you or may be able to recommend you to other people in the field. 2) Information Gathering Interview: Interviewing people in the .field in which youhope to’ become employed may be beneficial for gath& ing information about the career itself and for making contadts. If you use this approach make sure you prepare for the interview by dressing appropriately and having some well prepared questions. 3).Broadcasting: Sending letters and resumes ‘to many organizations is a widely used method of hunting for a job. Addresses for a wide variety of organizations can be found in telephone books or directories which are located in the Career Infsrmation Centre (eg. The Blue Book of Canadian Business, Directories of Social Services). Direct letters, to department heads, since they are often the people who hiring. Response rate can be improved by having a well-defined career goal and a resume which relates to a specific area of the organizdtion. A follow-up interview or phone call is also helpful. 41 Direct Application: Approaching department heads directly is one of the most effective ways of finding a job, because it shows that you have initiative and are eager for a job.

Gl,asnost and-the student moiement by Dan Narnne Maxim Sotnikovx is the leader of Moscow University’s Komsomol organization, which has a membership of more than 24,500 students. Being the largest youth organization in the Soviet Union, the Komsomol unites nearly 40 million young people between the ages of 14 and 28, In this inter”view with a Canadian student journalist, Sotnikovx discussed a number of issues of concern to students in the Soviet Union. Not surprisingly, Canadian students and their Russian counterparts have a great deal in comm’on. Q: How do Soviet youth evaluate the chances for ‘progress-in arms control and disarmament? A: I think that for the firs: time ever, we have a situation where progress is possible. We are cer-’ tainly prepared to make our contribution and, judging by the results of our Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze’s meeting with U.S. Secretary of State

George Shult?, the Americans are also prepared to play ball. The agreement reached at the meeting tb sign before the end of the year a treaty on the elimination of two classes of nuclear missiles should be considered the most important international event since the Helsinki Conference in 1985. _ Q: Here in the West, we have heard about the policy of glasnost and democra’t ization I pursued by Mikhail Gorbachev. How does this policy influence the life of-the Moscow University students and all Soviet students generally? A: I’ll give you a few examples. A decision was taken earlier this year to increase student representation in the bodies managing university affairs.. From now on, we shall have 25 per cent of the seats in the learned Councils of Institutions of higher education. Student commissions are also being set up at the Faculty level to participate in decision-making affecting student’s vital in-

young people’s activity. Multicandidate elections are now common practice in Komsomol organizations. New political clubs and’ students’ disco and video clubs haye sprung up. In me of the these. political clubs, students simulated a meeting between Shevardnadze and Shultz, which ,resulted in a failure to reach

that country. We have dents in our university who have served with the limited contihgent of Soviet troops in Afghanistan. Recently, they have set up a club called “Pioneer”, whose aim is to help Afghan’stan build a peaceful life. !%mong the members of this club are young men who have served in the Army and women students. MoscowUniversity decided to send a students’ building team to Afghanistan. It was no easy thing to do - many people feared for the students’ safety there and were against the idea. Nor was it easy to pick out 20 people out of 600 volunteers. For 45 days during their summer holidays, the students worked at house-building factory in Kabul. Q: What do Soviet students consider the main problem today? A: We think. t’hat the m.ain problem is to encoUrage people’s creative energy and activity. In-

this is a key problem

to the policy of “perestroika” in all spheres of life in the USSR. A somol Congress showed that the Ksmsomol’s prestige among stu-





and se-

ccmd year students were eagerto work in the Komsomol organiza-

tions-, while

students used every pretext to avoid Komsomol work. Why? Some students frankly told us that they did not *believe that their social activities could change anything. Yet, nearly 90 per cent of those polled put forward constructive proposals on ways to change the style, methods and aims of Komsomol work. These proposals were later laid at the base of what journalists called “a 17-point programme for reorganizing the Komsomol”. Incident ally, no youth paper in Moscow wanted to publish the results of the poll, so we sent them to the foreign press through the Novosti Press Agency. Another priority is to protect the environ’ment. The country’s



first students’ Environmental Protection Council was set up at )~OSCOW University some 10 years

ago. At first,

it united


ogy, soil and geography students. But later, students from all departments joined it. At the initiative of the council, we sent a letter six months ago to the government, drawing its attention to the State of Kurshskaya Kosa, a sandy peninsula in the Baltic Sea, uniq’ue in its beauty, and demanding that oil production be halted there. A short time ago, we received a reply saying that oil production had been suspended there und inviting representatives of the University’s Ecological Council to participate in a fact-finding expeditioq that would investigate the matter and report the results of the investigation to the government. We are planning to set up a students’ camp on the Solovki Islands in the White-Sea to protect architectural monuments there - ancient Russian monasteries and churches, Tiie Ecological Council is becoming, a kind of co-ordinating

centre of the students’ ecological movement throughout the country. Similar councils have been set up in nearly 150 institutions of higher education. Last year, the councils had their first conference and next year they will have a second one. Q: If you were to make an appeal to the Canadian students, what would you tell them? A: The Canada Cup tournament was held a short time ago. I watched almost all the -games, because for IO years I had been captain of the upiversity’s hockey team. And though we lost, it was a wonderful experience. I want to have more such experiences, I want us to meet more often, to exchange delegations and to get to know better each other’s views on various issues, from the problems of peace to that of self-government in students’ hostels and canteens. This is essential for trust and lasting peace. In short, if I were to make an appeal to the students of Canada, my message would,Lbe that of peace and mutual understanding.

So, you’re thinking a bout buying a computer, are you? Before you shell out $1,000 or more, take a few minutes to read this article. “A fool and. his money are soon parted”; ‘as the saying goes. We spent some time examining advertisements, talking to experts, and visiting various retail outlets in order to find out what the prospective computer buyer should know, We hope this will help the person who “doesn’t know anything about computers” make a more informed purchase. As with any purchase of this sort, you need to know some things before you even enter the store. Decide what you will be using your computer for. Will you be doing a great deal of complex mathematical computations which require a faster central processing unit or are your needs mainly in the area of -word processing functions? What kind of software are you planning to use? Does it require an immense amount of RAM [random access memory)? Does it require a colour graphics adaptor? Do you need advanced colour graphic capabilities or will a monochrome monitor suit your needs? . If you’re not sure exactly what you need, don’t panic. Usually if you have some idea of what you want to do, the. staff at the Store will help you pick-a machine to suit your needs. As well, people in the computing services departments of the university are usually willing to offer advice or suggestions.





ters+ We had a number of questions in mind. ’ What kind of clones are out there? What are the differences between them? Who is making them? -Are some people or comp’anies putting out better machines than others? What kind of sup’ port is offered? How do you know if you’re getting a good deal? What accessories do you need? What should be included. in. the purchase price? What questions- should. you ask? Is there anything you should beware of? It turns out there are two basic types of clon&, the XT and the AT. The main difference between the two is that the AT has a faster central processing unit (CPU). Therefore, someone who plans to be doing a great deal of coinplex and lengthy calculations may want to consider buying an AT-clone. The ATclone is more expensive and the XT-clone will suit the needs of the average student who mainly needs a wordprocessor with some spreadsheet and graphics capabilities.

BIOS (Basic Input Output System). These three components must work nicely with each other or you could run into problems. The Phoenix BIOS is the most highly recommended BIOS on the market. All the retailers mentioned above used this BIOS in their clones. The best way to check to see if the computer you are thinking of buying works is to bring in your own sciftware and try to ruh. it on the machine. If your software is IBM-compatible, it should run. If it doesn’t there may be a problem. Support varies .from retailer to retailer. According to our experts, extended warranties on electronic components are not something to get excited about. If the electronic components have something wrong with them, it will show up right away. Otherwise, they should last a long time and function normally. Hardware is another story. it is very important to make sure you have hardware support. Just reading the ads can clue you in. If a retailer offers full sup-







Unless ybu li& a &ecific ‘applica- , tion in “-mind which’ demand ,&srta:fn hardware featurei only found in Particular machines, you &bably &ill-be considering buying’what is kn&wn‘& an IBM-clone. These dlohes, IBM-compatible micro-comptiters, are immensely popular. There are good reasons for ‘their popularity: ’ l] Price. Thi history of this is kind of interesting,, but basically the IBM PC swept the market in the early 1980s. It set an industry standard. Sobn, people began producing machines that were 99 per cent identical to the IBM PC. They were called “clones” and they were a lot cheaper. Today you can buy a clone for $600 to $1,000 d epending on how many frills you want; 2) Software. Anyone who buys a clone has a machine which will run software that is compatible with any other clone or with real IBMs. The advantages’ of this become especially abvious if one gets involved in telecommunications. The IBM clone is “the” machine used by individuals around the world for talking to other computers. Because of the machine’s immense popularity, a great deal of software, much of it free, has been developed by. enthusiastic programmers. Furthermore, much of the software that ran on other systems has been modified to run on clones. 3) Adaptability. Again, this goes back to popularity. You can keep adding things to your clone, relatively cheaply, to enhance it as time goes by. With some other types of computers, it could cost you a lot to update them. For instance, adding a hard disk drive to your IBM clone costs only a third of the price of adding one to some of the more popular brand name computers., While other compariies may come up with innovative features first, the clone manufacturers are usually able to copy them some time later, minus the bugs and at a much reduced cost. QUESTIONS



t Since most UW will probably choose an IBM-clone of some sort, we focussed primarily on these compu-

still leave you enough RAM to worl with. 640K is pretty standard these days. If you opt for less, you’ll probably end up buying more later. Your decision regarding a monitor i! not overly important. You should 1001 for something that you think will pleasr your eye late at night when you’re try. ing to finish that last essay. (An olc black and white TV screen will do tht trick, but it’s hard on the eyes.) Aparl from that, the difference between a noglare screen and a normal one, a swivel base or fixed base, controls on the fronl or the back, it’s all a matter of personal t’aste. Most package deals come with a high resolution monochrome monitor. Unless you plan to do a lot of work involving graphics or plan to run software that requires colour, (many games need to at ieast think they’re running with a colour mdnitor) any old monochrome screen will do. You can always buy what is known as a colour graphics adaptor which will “fool” the software into thinking you have colour. Your choice of keyboard is not of monumental importance either. Unless you have a particular preference to have your keys in particular places, any keyboard containing the necessary alphanumeric and function keys will do. It doesn’t matter so much where they are located on the keyboard so long as they work.

Many retailers distinguish between the XT-clone and.the Turbo XT-clone. Turbo means it’s a little more powerful a& a little faster and usually a little’ more expensive. Which one you buy will depend on your individual needs. Some of the faster XT-clones have a push but4 ton on the front to allow you to switch down to the slower speed. This is useful if you are running some software which tian only function properly at a lower speed. - Flipping through the pages of various magazines and newspaPers we found five major advertisers of XT and AT clones in the&W area. These were PCFactory (associated with Waitronics], Computer Book and Supply [retailers for Image Computers], Off-campus+ Nielsen and Orion. (Some new ones cropped up even as we researched the article!] What does all that stuff in the ad mean? Is it a good price? What are you really getting? These were the questions we took to our UW exper’ts from the Math Faculty Computing Facility and the Arts Computing Facility. They told us that, basically, a clone is a clone is a clone. There is not much difference, for instance, between an IBM-XT clone sold by one retailer and one sold by another, The differences Iie not in the hardware itself so much as in the support provided.@inions on this vary, however, Sdme experienced users claim that certain combinations of parts work better than others. Others say this isn’t too important. Some people swear by Japanese parts and insist that parts from Taiwan or Korea are inferior. Others claim superiority for the DTK mother-board which is manufactured in Taiwan. We asked to see the insides of XT’s in the various retail outlets. We saw a mixture of parts in every computer we examined. How were the retailers deciding which parts were better than others? Easy. They looked at which ones came back to the store with problems and which did not. There was no clear consensus from store to store on which types of parts caused difficulties intiombination with certain other types of parts. The three main components of a clone are the mother-board, the CPU and the

cart for one or two years, it is generally Advertised. Note there is a difference between a “full warranty” and” a “li-. mited warranty”. As-k if the guarantee includes hardware. It even helps to check on the specific guarantee for specific components {monitor, hard drive, floppy drives, etc,). It may differ. Be careful. Some places charge extra for extended warranties and may not inform you of this until something goes wrong, j As well, check into the company from w>hich you buy your computer. Have they been around for awhile? Will they be .around long enough to help you if something goes wrung? Watch out for what look like fly-by-night operations, This does not mean you should avoid a _ new retailer, but use your judgment. Someone selling you an XT-clone from the back of his van might not be there if you need him! r WHICH




What is the difference between an XT clone advertised for $699 and one advertised for $995? If you look closely at the ads, you’ll see that one machine has tiore features than the other. This is the main-&fference @‘prices. While th&ac. tual working parts inside the box are essentially the same, you can choose between a machine with two disk drives or one. You can go for 690K of RAM or only 512K. The qtiality of the monitor may differ. The more expensive price may include a guarantee. All. these things are options on which the customer decides. T-wo floppy disk drives certainly come in handy. Some people claim two are essential without a hard disk drive 1[and they are if you don’t like exchanging disks

Ask about this ahead of time. Ideally you should test your own software on the machine you plan to buy. There is no other way to be certain, before making a purchase, that what you have already will work with what they sell you. Perhaps a friend is running a program ‘you would eventually like to use, Copy the program to your own disk (or if it’s copy-protected, borrow the disk] and take it with you to the store.

Does it need to be compatible tiith both North American and’ European phone sysfems? What baud rate are you going to need? What software will you be using tooperate it? Some modems work better with some software than with others. It’s worth looking into before you buy. Some experienced users recommend buying a surge protector, A surge protector ltioks like a power bar but contains an extra little component that prevents a surge in the electrical current from getting to the innards of the computer and damaging it, The chances of such a surge occurring are not great (except during a lightning storm] in normal residential settings. However, there is the risk ef damage if your machine is not protected and b’ne#occurs.

Ruling c@ls for WCFII member’s .expulsion by Steve Ksnnon Imprint etaff A judicial review committee of the Waterloo Co-operative Residence Inc. last week recommended the expulsion and eviction of one of the co-op’s members, the first such action since the 1985 winter term. Carol Tan, a ;resident of the Phillip Street co-op for seven years since arriving from Taiwan, is said to be living in her B-division apartment in violation of an occupancy agreement with the co-operative. The recommendation followed a judicial review of Tan’s compliance to co-op regulations since the beginning of this year. She was brought before the corn-’ mittee for violations of WCRI’s admissions policy, guest policy, and security and access policy, as well as her occupancy agreement. The review committee found her guilty of all the violations and recommended she be evicted and her membership in the co-operative be revoked. The charges. laid by division manager Ted Oakes at the re‘. quest of WCRI’s board of directors, stemmed from Tan’s continued occupancy of unit Bl2, a two-bedroom apartment, despite a signed agreement to take possession of a one-bedroom apartment on the third floor of the same building. Tan was asked to move to a one-bedroom unit because she did not have a roommate (WCRI


policy demands there be two people in a two-bedroom unit, unless otherwise arranged). The 36-year-old Tan, who has ‘an eight-week-old child, was extremely sick due to her pregnancy in the winter; her doctor recommended she not have anyone living with her. WCRI permitted the arrangement. for that term. -In the spring term, however, the co-op requested she find-a roommate for that term and the fall term. Tan was notified May .15 by Admissions Co-ordinator Pamela van Loon that she had three options: find a suitable roommate, move to a one-bedroom unit, or leave WCRI completely. At the review hearings, held October 19 and 23, Tan said she did, in fact, find a roommate within the time-frame specified by the co-op. Once that arrangement had been made, the matter should have been over, she said. For their part, both van Loon and WCRI General Manager Christie Baldwin testified Tan had not complied with the ad-missiofis policy, having failed to find a roommate in time to prevent action by the board. At its meeting of May 30, t&e board ruled Tan had until June 20 to choose one of two one-bedroom apartments offered or she would have to leave, said van Loon. On June 21, Tan sent a letter to the van Loon and Baldwin notifying them she would take a onebedroom uriit, although it was

Buying from an organization engaging in less than scrupulous business practices could be risky. Watch out for overly slick sales pitches or practices. While we did not run into any over-zealous salespeople trying to push unnecessary components on us, it could happen (and we’ve heard it does). Some people have complained about running into the” bait and switch” phenomenon. A retailer advertises an incredibly cheap machine. When you come into the store, a salesperson imme-t diately tries to talk you into buying something more expensive because the one advertised is so stripped down as to be of little use for anything but the most _.. simple tasks.

College by Derrick



St. Jerome’s College officially launches its 12th Annual Charity Run today, November 6. Organizers are hoping to raise as much as $6,500 in support of two local operations devoted to assisting the unemployed. The idea of a run for charity began in 1976 with two students who wished to make a substantial contribution to the K-Warea, where UW students make their

students home for eight’ months of the year. The cun has since evolved into an annual drive which sponsors different organizations Ieach year. This year%. proceeds will be donated to The Working Centre for the Unemployed, and its affiliate, the St. John’s Soup Kitchen in Kitchener. Founded by two St. Jerome’s alumni, these centres provide assistance to jobless people in the K-W area. The Working Centre was es-

kun for charity

subsidized by the government. That means every’ dollar raised during the charity run is matched by the government. The 1,600-kilometre run is a continuous relay in which a pair of students run around the ring r&d every IS minutes throughout theweekend of November 6, - 7, and 8. The event kicks off Friday with the Dean of St. Jerome’s and as most charities, the proband five others running the traditional first lap. lem of funding is never-ending, During the charity run, money The Working Centre is a recog- _ is not raise in the traditional nized charity and, as such, is

tablished five years ago to provide a counselling and retraining service for the unemployed. In the first six months of last year, the Working, Centre received more than 2,000 visitors hoping to rejoin the work-force. St. john’s, in just one month last year, served 3,600 meals. Both centres depend on charitable donations to stay afloat,

pledge-per-kilometre campaign, but rather through series of associated fund-raising events. A number of these events have already been held. However, there are still othy - 1ways to contrib_-a. ute. A coffee ho+ will be held at St. Jerome’s Siegfreid Hall on November 7. Raffle tickets are also on sale, the grand prize is a trip for two to Montreal. Organizers say anyone is welcome to join in on the run.

Ann Mortifce : is- w%thGt a.,: doubt one of Canada’s most talented women. Yet she is not very well-known. Fifty per cent of the people to whom I mention her name have never heard of her+ A shame. Or perhaps not. At least she hasn’t been sucked into the “pop” category and lumped with everyone and anyorie else who happens to have recorded a listenable song.. Ann stands in a category by herself .- a category that is difficult to label because of its diversity/ She has not only recorded albums, she has also composed music for stage plays, ballets, operas+ films, and radio and television shows. She has written a script and score for a family musical, and she has acted. She even paints. And yes, she tours with her band. Diverse, exciting, enthralling, intimate, delicate: Ann’s concert. Her relaxed, open stage manner created a charmed atmosphepe into which she wove her magical music. Her successful Bright Encounter album (released in Canada in 1984) was the source of one third of the concert: Mystery, Silhouette, Bright Encounter, I lust One Voice, Take Me Back, Sa$ nltss of the Tribe. The latter song, influenced by her childhood in South Africa, was written in memory of her beloved nanny Gausaulaulau. * number, in * - dramatic. .Another. .. 1 I lu& sty J, was addressed to Gau’saplau- + tiU!f”You were all of Africa’tti me . . . Prisoner in your

Anne Mortifee native land.‘+ Into this song Ann poured her whole heart. At one point she disclosed to the audience that she received a considerable portion of her musical sense in,-Africa, specifically: from the singing of th.e men tiho worked in the cane fields on her -f&her’s plantation in’ Zululand. Just before the intermission she got into what she later termed her “heavy dramatic stuff’. In a song entitled Merlin, the theatrical Ann revealed herself. She didn’t just sing the

song, she acted it in such a manner that you forgot that you were at a “concert;” Thunderous applau’se followed her as she bowed out to a no doubt welcome break. Back in the summer of 1976, Ann stopped singing to depart on a sabbatical of indefinite du*ration. After travelling in Europe, India, and North -Africa, she liwd for a considerable period in battle-etibroiled Beirut, Lebanon. This sojourn inspired another

highly dramatic piece, a statement specifically about the war in Lebanon, but attributable to all wars. The following lines embedded themselves in my me“There is no truth in mory: -wrong and right. . . Young boys lie still and lifelesswith nothing in their eyes but wild surprise.” Some members of the audience were not prepared for the dramatics, nor for the occasional mystical moments in the performance; it was something they had to get used, to. However, thi

humour of other numbers, such as Freddie’s Feet and The Jester, effectively balanced the whole show. I heard one man express surprise that Ann didn’t have an opening act; he doubted whether her voice could hold out for the entire show. And that was the amazing thing about Ann’s voice: clear, expressive, vi bran,t, powerful, it never showed the slightest sign of strain as it traveiled within the limits of her incredible range. Ann Mortifee has been around for a while. Judging from the faces around me her loyal admirers range considerably in age: proof of her diversity and fimelessness, Lucky are those who didn’t miss the concert. It was almost , perfect. My only complaint would be that the band occasionally drowned out Ann’s singing, On the whole though, the band Doug Edwards, synthesizerlguitar: Jim McGillveray, percussion/sound effects: Miles Black, piano/synthesizer; Rene Worst, bass; Paul Burton (the man with whom she shares her life and her son), drums/percussiofi - beautifully complemented the voice that the audience had come to hear. Before singing her encore Baptism, the title song from her first album (released in Canada in 1976) - Ann told the audience she has a feeling that her life is going to change. Jokingly she said that she may become a cobbler. If she does, let’s hope that she does& stop singing; the loss of her contribution to music . would be a great loss for Canadian culture.

On Lhe next page she appears as an adult, and adventures in her mind, swivelling high on her office chair. The written text is underscored by a visual subtext, created by Alan Daniel’s humorous pen-and-ink drawings. Lee said he and Daniel worked to’ gether on this, and it is very much what he had envisioned. He spent almost as long on the shape and layout af the book BS he did 0~3 the paegms. that went into it.

Sometimes the poems dome alive, Lee said, and “reach out and

Genius Move That Petrol Emotion Virgin (Import)

by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff Seems like just about everything That Petrol Emotion does - is a genius move. As if it wasn’t enough to have released six killer singles and a pair of brilliant albums in the space of two * years, they have to go and make another excellent EP of two new gems and a rewarked live track from their d’ebut album. Genius Move is yet more tividence of TPE’s clanking, clatt’ering pop wizardry, putting the fun up front and leaving the politics down in the mix and on the back of the record jacket in the form of a quote from. The Politics of Irish Freedom by Gerry Adams. The A-side, though not- as instantly and deliriously catchy as Big Decision, is a tough, but light-faoted finger-snapper, fleshed out with lots of ‘oooo’s and a big, jolly horn section. With its soulful overtones, it should pick up on the dance floor where Big Decision left off. The B-side finds edhoes of

both their debut’s Natural Kind of Joy and The Replacements’ Swingin’ Party on Party-Games, gorgeous, wistful pop wizardry that has Steve Mack doing a pretty fair Michael Stipe vocal. Pretty delicate, airy stuff for Barry Andrews of Shriekback notoriety to be producing. And then they grind it up good ‘n’

grungy on the live version of Manic Pop Thrill’s Mouthcrazy, braking to a half-speed clog while .Mack howls and gurgles through a throat-full of venomous phlegm. So it’s maybe not their best, but rest assured that your That Petrol Emotion ‘collection shouldn’t be finished just yet.

334s EP Of The Desert Desert Records


real. Sons Of The Desert was one of La,urel and Hardy’s better talkies, it’s also the name of their fan club. 1 hope Sons Of The Desert (the band) don’t have to do one of those crummy name changes for legal reasons (like Dinosaur to Dinosaur Jr. or Yaz to Yazoo, ugh).

Musically, this album isn’t what you would call groundbreaking, nor is it a brain-dead rock ‘n’ roll fest, No, what we have here is an uncomplicated, unchallenging but not uninteresting EP Love Slave is catchy, Be Mine is okay; but overall the tunes are pretty much interchangeable.

. .CD’s expand artist exposure by Trevor Blair Imprint staff Easily one of the best things about compact discs is their capacity to hold up to 74 minutes of music with no reduction in sound quality. Vinyl is able to accommodate about 45-50 minutes; beyond that, sound quality diminishes considerably. This CD bonus has prompted clever marketing people to add tracks to fill up the extra space. Anyone recently purchasing a CD may have noticed obscure tracks, ‘EPs, or b-sides accompanying the regular play list for the album. Reissues benefit the: most from this development; shorter albums not yet on CD are sometimes doubled up (early Box). Some double albums even fit nicely on one CD (recent Husker Du, Cure, Sting).

Nomind is a band through its prowess of pure musicianship create large boisterous sounds. A guitarist with the attributes that could dominate any normal group plays along side a pair of exacting executioners of bass and drums. This marriage of instrumental excellence is the main feature of Nomind’s music and is portrayed on their cassette, Punkusraucousrex. Punkusraucousrex is a nifty package of Nomind sticker and button included with the tape. The boldly dictated liner notes tells of where and when the music was put together for the cassette. A couple of tunes, Dirt Desire and Bonehead, were done up in a studio with the help of Change of Heart and Vital Sines producer Mike Phillip-WojewDda while the other tracks were the result of the band’s own doings. The disparity of the sound quality between the studio tracks and the “homespun” versions slightly detracts from the tape beihg a total tale of Nomind’s expertise.

While Dyoxen’s speedcore could be likened to a dragster blasting off at the green light with a streamIined forward delivery, another London band, the Black Donnellys, are more like a stock car: griiding and reckless in their approach, the thrash throttle wide open. Crunchy guitars an,d motor mouthing vocals propel the Donnelly’s music. Lead singer Dan Rudbal’s speedball singing/ranting is an essential element of the movement of the songs as he preaches a punk ideology.

accent shifts from strong back beat to running guitar riff which produces the strongest outburst of the weathermen’s offerings. Another standout is the opening song Vegil with the attention placed on the strong harmonies of the chorus. This song pushes along with a bouncy beat and makes for a fresh invigorating start for the other songs to follow. The album is available downstairs at the CC. record store and is a worthwhile acquisition not just because of its local flavour, but for the quality of material and presentation captured by this promising band.

intoxicating as it is danceable: consider Russell, as bard as virtually anything by Shriekback, but even more densely layered; Little Mutchstic_k Owen where Ryder’s edgy singing fails brilliantly to hit those elusive upper-register notes; and Desmond, a funky, tongue-in-cheek homage to The Beatles’ Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da.

This debut on vinyl is the followup to their Machinery cassette release and contains all new material, with the exception of the foursome’s alluring Element of Truth track.

Paddle to the Amazon: The Ultimate 12,000 Mile Canoe . Advetltup b;- Don Starkell McClelland and Stewart by Tom York Imprint stuff Puddle to the Amazon is ihe log-book of a 2%month-long canoe trip taken in 1980-82 by a d&year-old father and his two sons, ages 19 and 17. Setting out from Winnipeg, they paddle upstream on the Red and portage the height,of land to the Mississipvi, which they follow to Ney Orleans. They then take the Intracoastal Waterway to the Mexican border, where in their Z&foot fibreglass canoe they brave the Gulf, then theCaribbean, past Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama, Then eastward past Columbia and Venezuela to Trinidad, where they take their second -well-earned and much-needed rest of 10 weeks [the first breather, in Veracruz, was .forced -on them), before crossing

to the South American mainland. Finally, 1,000 miles up fhe Orinoco to Tama Tama; 200 miles along the remote Casiquiare Canal; 800 miles down the Rio Negro to Manaus; and 1,000 miles down the Amazon to the port city of Belem, where their trip ends, An amazing achievement, Lr is it? Since I intend to be critical, 1 want to give niy credbntials. Every natural hazard the Starkells encountered, I have encounter&d in an equal number of miles of canoeing, but all in Canada. Furthermore, several of these trips have been with my two sons, ages 17 and 19. So, from both the technical and paternal vantage, I feel qualified to make the following pronouncements. First, Starkell at the beginning of the trip is both a nitwit and a martinet: he doesn’t know much about canoeing, and he doesn’t : know his sons very well. He learns, but not soon enough, from his younger son, who abandon* -the enterprise at La Pesca, Mexico. His introspective older son, who completes th% trip, is

given to long sulks, blaming his father for everything that goes wrong, accusing him of lack of concern, and on at least half a dozen occasions, physically fighting with hiti. As for canoeing, despite his claim that he prepared for this trip for 10 years, Starkell sets out ill-equipped, with neither slash-cover nor open-water skills, with a lo-year-old tent that leaks badly, and far too much gear of the wrong kind. In addit ion, the Starkells ‘were burdened with psychological dead-weight such as: “I am daunted by the thought of being stopped, of failing. I have never before allowed myself to fail,” and “We promised ourselves that every mile of our j’ourney would be achieved under our own power. No lifts. No tows. No temptation to cut corners.” This ridiculous resolution results in the Starkells, pere et fils, hauling on three separate occa-

sions of up to 40 miles trailers designed to be towed, while declining offers of aid. It results, also, &being forced to wait four months in Veracruz, /then backtracking (when the water table has changed) to do the 12 miles of Laguna Madre their canoe has been mired in, - a13 because their canoe was so heavily laden (1200 lbs of cargo!) it could not be portaged. Why didn’t they take a York boat? Or, since the primary virtue of a canoe is its portability, pack it properly - without the aluminum boxes, porttible radio, acoustic guitar, tree cook stoves, two guns, boots,. tennis shoes, machete, knives, sleeping bag - all of which they lost, or cast overboard, anyway? Was it because DOQ Starkell wanted this to be the world’s Iongest canoe trip, one he could enter in the Guiness Book of World Records? At Puerto +strella, Columbia, he admits as much: “I

Grimly bizarre and viblent events like the San Ysidro McDonald’s mass murder and the recent killing spree in a post office by a fellow postal worker have had a profoundly unsettling effect on the conscience and sectirity of Middle America, but a lesser publicihed, single murder in suburban California some years ago is somehow just as disturbing and terrifying. Not just because the victim was a high-school girl and the murderer was her teenage boyfriend, but mainly because of the complicity of their friends i,n covering up the crime. Such is the focus of rookie director Tim Hunter’s dotiment of the purder, The River’s Edge. On a superficial level, the plot follows the ,gradtial disclosure of the girl’s.body, lying naked and decomposing on the spot where .~ L :.

The diver’s Edge is made riveting by Hunter’s concentration on the d.ynamics of the group of teenage friends a,s

the tension in the community mounts over the girl’s disappearance and the growing suspicion toward Samson. There is a moral black hole at the core of The EEiver’s Bdge’s characters; it doesn’t really occur to them until the mov’ie draws near the end that perhaps Samson did something wrong. The murdered girl was their friend, too, but for the better part of the film, they are simply entranced by.&e novelty of the crime and especially by the fact that it inv$ves ihe& somehow, thus bringing a little adventure to their lives.

The s’econd act was marred by poor lighting effects; the wilis are supernatural beings and the lighting was too harsh to project this quality. Anita Pietrewici, as Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis, gave a cold and severe performance and she appeared to be counting bars vigorously in her head. Her dancing did not reach beyond the edge of the stage. The corps was excellent. Their timing was good and they were very uniform in the height of their grind battements. To synchronize a a corps the size of the one required for Giselle (241 is a difficult task that was well met. As a whole, the ballet company was very methodical, a quality that can alienate the audience. At Centre in the Square, however, this was not possible as the audience was too eager to applaud the smallest thing anyway (the Wilis running in a circle won a big hand). * The partnership of Likhovskaya and ,Wolk-Karaczewdki lacked conviction and passion; part of the reason for this being

the lack of real dancing tar Albrecht. Each did have their moments: Likhovskaya had an extension in second that went on for days, and Wolk-Karaczewski’s entre chat six were excellent. One of the most annoying things about the performance, however, were Likhovskaya’s shoes.

The Warsaw Ballet’s production of Giselle, perfor-med at Centre in the Square November 2, was weak by demonstrating the stagnating qualities of classical ballet. Act I opened with too much mime in the male roles. Prior to the turn of the century male miming was the norm, as the role of the male was to present the ballerina, to focus the audience’s attention on her. Today, the role of the male has been developed to show his abilities as an individual and as a dancer on stage. The Warsaw Ballet failed to develop the role of Albrecht as a viable presence on stage. The first act held altogether too much time. Olga Likhovskaya, -as Gisclle, did not demonstrate her abilities until late in the first act and Waldemar WoIk-Karaczewski, as Albrecht, did not really dance at all until Act II. The most dancing was by a pair qf soloists: Kama Akucewicz and Arkadiusz Stepien. Akucewicz was very strong; her double pirouettes en pointe were balanced dead-on, and she was able to fill the stage with her

Ghastly weekend by Mike


McGraw staff

Perhaps the Waterloo Warriors and Laurentian Voyageurs would have had more success trick or treating on Saturday night. In a graphic display of preseason blabs, the Vees rolled over the Warriors 67-52 October 31 at the PAC. The loss rounded out aghastly Halloween weekend for the Warriors, who were beaten 71-68 Friday night at Ryerson. The Warriors pre-season record now sits at 2-3. The Warriors entered the game concerned about their lack of defence in the first h&es of previous efforts. However, on Saturday, one had to wonder if either team would score 30 points in the entire game. After 10 minutes of fumbled passes, air balls and horrid shooting, the Vees led II-?. In fact, much of the first half resembled a rugby match, as most of the play was restricted to strum-like action in the key. Laurentian managed to muster numerous three-pointers amid the scrappy game to take a 23-13 lead by the 1%minute mark. At this point, a visibly exasperated UW coach Don McCrae called a desperately needed time out. The break appeared to inspire the Warriors momentarily, as they pulled. within 5, But this would be Waterloo’s only consistent attack of the night, as Laurentian regrouped to lead 36-25 a4 halftime.

“It’s time to get on with the program” by Mike McGraw Imprint staff The future of the Waterloo football program is looking brighter. Ernie Lucy, dean of students, indicated this week that despite much of the widespread pessimism, the program will continue next year. Lucy also countered ex-coach . Bob McKillop’s charges that the university administration was guilty o’f mismanagement in last month’s player revolt. “Some people say there isn’t going to be a program because of what the players did,” said Lucy, “but this is wrong. I’ve discussed the problem with the university president (Doug Wright) and the program will continue.” McKillop claimed last week that the university administration’s involvement in the player upheaval was a gross error in mana ement procedure. But Lucy %enied that he was guilty of any administrative errors. Two weeks, before McKillop resigned, several pla ers approached Lliey .with t i! sir conterns. “I had a number of fogtball players come to me with a prob~ lem. A4 dean of students, 1 talk to students all the time - it’s part of my job,” said Lucy. “They merely asked what they could do about it because they were unhappy with the program. I indicated they should go thorough the ‘normal channels,’ but I also said ‘that if a substantial nu’mber of people were unhappy. then I _.

would see if 1 could do something about it. I hardly call this instructing them to do anything.” McKillop charged last week that the players were wrong in going right to the university administration as opposed to confronting him (McKillop) and the athletic acjminis tration. To this, Lucy retorted, “rightly or wrongly, they felt if they went to the department heads they wouldn’t get anywhere, The captains had bekn trying to resolve the problem for along time, but without success.” Lucy said that there was no move by the playeis to have McKillop removed until the coach challenged them after the October 8 game at Guelph. After that game, and at practice on October 12, McKillop challenged the playersto identify the problem with the team. “The players made an honest effort to complain, and while they were grumbling, they took no real action until the coach challenged them and asked what the problem was,” said Lucy. “They came back and, said the reason was th.e coach.” The moining after the team meeting, the players presented Lucy with a petition signed by 48 of the 57 team members. That afternoon, Lucy and men’s athletic director, Wally Delahey, met with the team chptains and listened to their concerns. After meeting with the players, Delahey and Lucy met with McKillop, who .voluntarily agreed to relin uish his duties. “‘Bo% felt he couldn? continue

with that lack of support,” commented Lucy. Luc expressed his anger over htiw t x e players have been portrayed as members of some covert coup. “The players have been getting a bum rap. They didn’t get a petition going until McKillop challenged them,” said Lucy. He

The Athenas basketball team evened their preseason record at 2-2 with a 58-55 victory over Rytirson October 30.

The Ryerson Rams managed to close the gap

In the final three minutes of play, the two clubs exchanged the lead five times. With one minute remaining, Karen McClilla stole an inbounds pass and aggressively took the ball to the hoop to recapture the Athena lead.

Head coach Dave Heinbuch commented, “the team tiow has some momentum heading into Saturday’s games at U of T. The players are now more confident. I was especially impressed with the play of our bench. They have shown great improvements since the beginning of the season,” Assis,tant coach Shane Rollins added that “the game against Queen’s was very disappointing, but the team came back with excellent efforts against Carleton and RMC. If we can build on those, things look much better for the final five league games,” The Warriors next home game is November 18 at 7:3o in the PAC against the York Yeomen.
