Student dean’s job . to besplit, renamed by Mike Brown Imprint staff Academics may soon be satisfied about the fate of the dean of students . A recently released report to the president of the university calls for installing an academic into a new position labelled “dean of undergraduate education: The report urges the present position of dean of students be changed to the title of vice-provost for student services effective upon the retirement of present t non-academic’ Dean of Students Ernie Lucy. A committee was struck last June because of rumblings in’the faculty caused by appointments of non-academics to “dean” positions

by ths university

adminis&

tration. The title of dean is traditionally held only by academics. When Lucy was appointed to ’ the position it was at the behest of university President Doug Wright. Approval by the UW senate was subverted because the administration viewed the ap-

pointment of’ the dean of students as a position necessary for the operation of the university and therefore suitable for presidential appointment. Federaticin of Students’ President Ted Carlton said t.here is good communication between the Feds and the administration because of Lucy’s efforts as a liaison between ‘students, student leaders and the Needles Hall staff. There is, however, ‘*a lack of a single person to talk to in the faculty,” Carlton said. The creation of a dean of undergraduate education would eliminate the communication gap between the Federation of Students and the faculty. Carlton spoke highly of the proposed position; According to the

out-going

Fed

president,

“there is a very strong need for a person to look at undergraduate academic issues from a university&de perspective with 8 recognized authority and being at the table when all major decisions ar8 made.” Wright has not made a public statement on the report aa of yet.

said, blaming .underfunding. Two bus loads of Laurentian students left from Sudbury at 6 a.m. for Toronto, bringing to the Ontario Federation of Studetits rally their demands for accessibility and equality in post-secondary education. Underfunding has caused overcrowding in classes, reduced library budgets, and has severely limited the hiring of teaching assistants, and potential professors, according to Peter Moes, who teaches French at U of T. Disappointed by the size of the crowd’ he said the “majority Of students don’t, realize how much they’re going to be affected by consistent under-funding.” Unlike most campuses, Toronto’s R erson Polytechnical had cancel Yed classes for its 10,000 full-time students, said Ed Kung, a business student at the instii tute. The president of Guelph’s Central Student Association, one of some 50 Guelph supporters who turned up, said U of G is facing course cuts and-losing faculty positions because of underfunding. Referring to exclusionary municipal housing bylaws, he said “if it was ever enforced in Guelph you’d see one of the worst housing crises,” Other protesters drew attention to increasing student to teacher ratios. Matt Certosimo, a fourth-year WLU Political Science major and former OFS chair, said “less access to profs means less access to direct

dary ins tit utions. Weir challenged the premiere to live on the Ontario Student Assistance Plan’s $106 per week living allowance, The spirited crowd heard Weir protest the student housing situation in Ontario’s university cities and I towns. Weir shouted for “more affordable units for those in need.” Days before the March 10 prdtest, Peterson threw out a political “goodie” to students <in the province. While in London, Ontario two weeks ago, Peterson promised to draft legislation outlawing municipal govern-merit exclusionary bylaws, which limit the number of unrelated people who may share a residence. Weir congratulated Conservative MPP Cam Jackson for his private member’s bill. Jackson introduced Bill 94 which is a piece of anti-exclusionary bylaw legislation. Jackson was booed heavily by the crowd; they yelled “you had your chance, you had your chatice,, .“, referring to the Tories’ 43 years in government. More than 8,000 signed postcards were delivered to the premier’s office on the day of the protest, Weir said. The post-

'

cards carried messages insisting that Peterson live up to his pledge. Although Waterloo sent two bus loads of students, UW Federation liaison to OFS Darren Meister insisted anything less than four buses was pathetic. Meister did not change his feelings after the march; he was disappointed Waterloo did not send four buses but he recognized the event generated - much needed publicity. Wednesday’s Toronto Star carried an opinion piece on underfunding as its lead editorial. Meister said the event was too rushed and would have received more support had it been scheduled in September or October, instead of in the spring when students are just concerned about graduating. The eveni did receive extensive coverage from both the corn+ mercial and medi.a. Besides Weir, the crowd heard Dr. John Starkey, president of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations. Both opposition education critics were allowed to speak; however, cabinet minister Lynn Mcleod was not invited to speak by the OFS organizers. Mcleod is the new minister of colleges and universities.

Students shout down Conservat-ive critic by Marie Sadivy Imprint staff Students would have been better served had they spent their energy working to build alliances with both opposition parties rather than booing the PC education critic at the March 10 OFS protest, said Richard Johnston, opposition education critic. The comment came after several hundred university students’ from across the province interrupted Cam Jackson’s address at the rally with booing and chants of “You had your chance.” “It’s unfortunate, but inevitable,” commented Johnston. Although Johnston maintained the “Liberals are caught in a predicament after a decade of underfunding by the Tory government ,” he. pointed out that Jackson was not part of the government that caused the problem. Jackson was first elected to the provincial legislature in 1985. While Jackson was visibly disappointed by the students’ response, he judpd their reaction to resulted because most were not aware of his commitment to education. “I don’t think they were aware that I had introduced Bill 94 in the House. Stu; tInt:l;ren’t that disrespectful, . Bill 9:. introduced on IanGry 7; aims to prohibit exclusionary bylaws such as those in Waterloo which limit the number of unrelated people who may ljve in a single dwelling. According to Jacksan, Waterloo Liberal MPP Herb Epp has already publicly stated he does not support the bill. Premier

David Peterson has acknowledged the bill only in the context of an upcoming by-election in the riding of London North. Jackson also expressed concerns that the campus would become a focus of the by-election, but would quickly be forgotten if the Liberals were to regain the seat. During the rally, Jackson criticized the Liberal government for not taking student housing problems seriously and urged the protestors not to believe Premier David Peterson’s recent announcement to take a stand against exclusionary bylaws in London North. ‘II may be cynical, but I have a good memory for how I was treated,” said Jackson. He himself had to leave university for financial reasons, and consequently claims to feel passionately for students. Jackson said the kinds of debts incurred by many students are morally indefensible: “I don’t think more” loan mane is ,the answer,” he continue B . “Why mortgage your future?” Jackson also said the government’s Transitions Program _ which. pays for retraining of older laid-off workers will send these workers to OSAP for income support not provided throunh Transitions.

on Holy Ground

by Robert Day It has been with some amusement and often with a gotid deal of chagrin that I have read some of the contributions from both the general public and from the occasional Imprint staffer, extolling the virtues of their favorite supernatural deity. While some of this literature did in fact have redeeming value, a depressing percentage of it seemed to rise no further than the level of, “Well, my (insert nome of favorite deity here] is bigger/better/whiter/brighter than your (insert name of someone else’s deity here],” a rather content-free demonstration of illogic whose result was just a little more sadness for another tree that sacrificed itself for the letters page or the editorial section. But as much as fervent believers are ready to throw down the gauntlet and take up arms over the most trifling differences in interpretation, it seems fairly safe to say that there is one area in which they are in universal agreement, that is, their rather disturbing intolerance and/or misplaced sympathy for the non-believer. Even the more moderate of the pious have their problems with this attitude; I mean, surg non-believers are okay, but you really wouldn’t want yolpf sister to marry one, would you? Having seen the media, near and far, inundated with examples cif the above, it has become clear that the non-believer has been (to put it mildly) poorly represented, and the time has come,for the voice of reason to add a note of sanity. Of course, seeing as how no one in the immediate vicinity fits that description, I guess I’ll do it. And in the analysis to follow in the next three issues, I should emphasize that any resemblance to anyone’s personal deity, living or dead, is unintentional but probably unavoidable. The first order of business is to define the players in the game, these being the individual holding a belief in the existence of a supernatural kntity [the theist), another holding a belief in the non-existence of said (or any other such) entity (the atheist), and a third person who holds no belief either way (the agnostic). The important distinction between the latter two classes can be emphasized by pointing out that, while the atheist, at least according to the definition to be used here, holds an active belief in the non-ex,istence of aa deity, the’ agnostic’s position is characterized by a Iack of belief, a distinction that will become important in the drama to follow. And now, act one . . . I... in which a theist and an agnoshc strike up a conversation, inevitably resulting in a statement of belief by the theist, to which, the agnostic replies that he, for one reason or another, holds no such belief. The theist, a veteran of the verbal wars and having done his homework after being

shellacked in previous encounters, may smugly point out that, if one’s position is based on objective evidence, the agnostic’s position is no more tenable since one can no more prove non-existence than one can prove existence, thereby committing logical fallacy number one. “Sorry,” responds the agnostic, “you miqunderstand my position, I am certainly not claiming non-existence, I am not making any kind of claim. You are the one with the belief, therefore, the entire burden of proof is on you.” And so ends the first salvo, the theist trying to get rid of this particular hot potato and having it placed firmly back in his lap. Nowhere &ear ready to concede any points in this skirmish, the theist may take on an almost accusing tone of voice, ‘You mean you don’t believe in God at &?“, to which the agnostic, recognizing the land mine inherent in this question, sidesteps neatly with-, * “That depends.” “On what?” asks the theist, sensing correctly that he is being baited.‘ “On what you mean by God.” Of all the possible responses, this is the one for which the theist is least prepared, all of his previous debates having at least assumed this much of a basic premise. “But . . , but,” the theist is’spluttering a little now, “you know what I mean, God, you know,, .‘I “I haven’t the foggiest idea what you mean,” “could you describe this responds the agnostic, entity?” “Well,” says the theist, recovering slightly and wanting to pass quickly over this deli,berate roadblock to get to the heart of the discussion, “my deity is a loving, patient, caring, . . .‘I “No, no, no,” cuts in the agnostic, “you’re telling _ me how your deity b.ehaves, I want to know what he is. A description, please.” The theist is looking to score some quick points here, countering with, “All right, he (she/it] is the entity responsible for the creation of the universe, the primal cause +, .I, “Sorry,” cuts in the agnostic, “but now you’re telling me what your deity has done. I want to know what it is. Try again.” “I don’t understand you at all,” says the theist, losing a little composure, “what are you after?” says the agnostic, “you have “Very simply,” professed a belief in a’n entity of sqme form, and yet you appear to be completely incapable of supplying even -the most rudimentary physical description of it. Is it smaller than a bread box? Is it larger than the collective ego of the mathNEWS editorial staff? What color is it? Does it come with power steering and my choice of seat covers?” At this point, the.theist accuses the agnostic of being facetious. The agnostic is unmoved, He can wait. In fact, seeing that the theist may need a little time, he can wait for about another week. To be continued .. .

There are two ways of looking at this question. One way is to assume that my students are trying to convey a message that they are suffering from information overload in class. The other interpretation is that they are interested in getting my views on the subject matter. Since students have ample opportunity to ask questions in class, I can only conclude that they are trying to convey a message to me - one that I and many other faculty members have heard repeatedly; ie., the workload is too heavy at UW. In fact, one of my students posted the following “message” in one of our classrooms, “Thirsty for knowledge - but drowning in information!”

that inis possible?

However, since you’ve asked me to respond, let me be serious for a moment and express my views on the subject matter of information overload. In our .information-driven society, information overload is not only a possibility, it is a fact of life. We are all struggling to cope with a world that seems to have gone haywire in terms of information processing capacity, while our abilities to digest the information has not kept pace. All of us, professors, students, and laypeople face information overload both inside and outside the university. Since the very essence of a university is to confront information, and produce even more of it in response, the treadmill that we are on becomes obvious! What can be done about this? Well, we can try to be better at filtering out the junk from the valuable material. But, since the volume of information is growing so fast, this means longer .hours and more work for eve?yone . . . until we develop tools’ and techniques for better communicating end better distilling information. This, by the way, is one of my areas of research . . . but more about that another time.

Past Federation of Students presidential candidate Steve King is aiming at changing the way we vote at UW. King is known for his sometimes outlandish but always, frank proposals. This time King is bringing B bylaw change proposal to the Federation of Students annual general meeting. The AGM is scheduled for March 29, The Federation was served notice this week of King’s proposal to charge students a voting fee on tuition statements. The fee would be $5 per term and would be refunded provided students voted in Federation elections. King could introduce his bylaw change at this Sunday’s Federation council meeting. He has decided to bypass the council in favour of the AGM where all fee paying undergraduates are eligible to vote. “I think that it’s absurd,” cotimented Fed President Ted Carlton. Carlton said it is not only wrong to force people to vote but any proposed initiation of new student fees must be passed by a campuswide referendum, To call a referendum, 1,500 signatures are needed. Carlton added that voter turnout is a political problem ‘of the Federation of Students. “We have to make ourselves more relevant; we have to say it will effect education rather than studentscpocketbooks,

Marc Bmastowski The next cup of coffee you drink may not only be bitter, it may help destroy what is left of the ozone layer. Chloroflourocarbons [CFCs) are chemicals used in the manufacture of many plastic foams, including the white Styrofoam cups found in most C%Ds and food areas on campus, The Campus Centre goes through 1,500 a’day (1985 statistics) according to Kara Symbolic and Bev Nuttal of WPIRG’s ecology Workgroup. Symbolic said “not all Styrofoam cups are made with CFCs,” but “it doesn’t make sense for a product like that to be used for five minutes and thrown away.“These cups cannot be recycled and their incineration would release toxic gases into the atmosphere. Landfills in the region will last “certainly no more than a few years.” CFCs are also used in refrigeration and air conditioning systems, and Symbolic would like people to “remove CFCs from refrigerators before the dump accepts it.” She said chemical giant DuPont is working on an alternate coolant to replace CFCs, but noted alternative chemicals already exist. Said Nuttal: “the problem is cost.“‘ Over the summer, WPIRG will be convincing C&Ds to serve coffee in reuseable containers, but other than that effort, Symbolic was unaware of further initiatives to limit CFC use on campus. Symbolic called response to Wednesday’s WPIRG Campus Centre ozone display “quite good”. The display moves to Brock University on Monday.

Education reforms needed badly: NDP by Marie Sedivy Imprint staff “The Liberals are in a schizophrenic position regarding their education policies,” said NDP Education Critic Richard Johnston following the March 10 Ontario Federation of Students protest at Queen’s Park. While education is an important symbol of Liberal reforms, certain segments within the party have been stressing increased fiscal responsibility, he said. This dichotomy combined with a decade of underfunding, has left the Liberal government in an almost impossible situation in regard to education policies. “Only the budget will tell,” said Johnston, referring to the budget expected next month. During the rally, Johnston assured the students they have the right to expect that t,he wealthiest province provide the highest levels of funding for post-secondary education. He pointed out that many American states provide higher levels of funding than does Untario, and expressed concerns that increased competition with U.S. institutions under free trade could threaten Ontario universities. Johnston identified a need for a major increase in capital allocations for space, and a need to expand teaching positions. He said such a plan is economically feasible. Referring to the healthy economy and the $1 billion ex-

cess funds the provincial government found itself with at the end of the last fiscal year, he said, “If this is not the time to increase funding, I don’t know what is.” According to Johnston, the allocation of funds to education is simply a matter of priorities. However, Cam Jackson, Progressive Conservative education critic, slammed the record of the NDP. “Students often forget that when the NDP had the opportunity to put education on the political agenda (when the Liberals had a minority government) they didn’t; they had one chance to make education a number-one priority,” he said. Johnston emphasized his own party’s commitment to universal access of quality education, saying he does not agree there need be a dichotomy between philosophy and economic reality. Stating the right of students to expect the support of opposition parties, Johnston pledged both his support and the support of party leader Bob Rae “against the Liberal government’s shortsighted policies.” problems, said Many present Johnston, stem from a lack of imagination in organizing the ministries: “Too many ministers are dealing with education issues right now,” he said. These include the minister of skills development, the minister of colleges and universities, and the minister of education. Johnston also told the protestors they have “the right to go

Johnston also stressed the need for construction of on-campus residences in order to guarantee students’ right to proper housing. In addition, the opposition spokesman assured the Francophone sector of the population of their right to a French university education.

Mounties hackers? There is no place the RCMP have not been if all the rumours were collected and analyzed. Reports indicate they have raided the Math building, St. Jerome’s and Renison. There is also rumour of the arrests and discipline of WW profs. In the university Village and church college residences computer buffs are frantically hiding their copied software. Student newspapers are calling other student newspapers. On-cam us, security reports no knowle if ge of any RCMP activity. Similar rumours which circulated at Guelph and McMaster were completely unverifiable. At this time, the alleged raids by the RCMP appear to be a massive hoax. One factor which could have caused the widespread illusion stems from a Wednesday visit to campus by RCMP recruiting officers.

Aristotle and Plato as UW role models As students, we are attending university with various goals in mind but all of us are here to learn. We are at Waterloo because we chose to come and study at this institution of higher education, but I think that we are being cheated from one of the finest learning opportunities available on a university campus! That of sitting down in small groups or one-on-one with a professor over coffee or beer and discussing academic or world issues. Our professors are brilliant individuals, most are widely travelled and can bring a wealth of personal experience to any subject. But how often does the Waterloo student actually chat with a professor about anything other than course material, an exam or to get help on some homework? As students, we must accept some of the responsibility for this situation but most must fall on the professors and the university administration. Students often feel intimidated by their professors and the idea of inviting a professor for coffee has probably not crossed many undergraduates’ minds. But professors, how many of you have thought to leave your comfortable offices, computer screens, and research labs to meet your students in a coffee shop, the Bombshelter or POETS? Is it too much to ask? The administration does nothing to encourage this situation from changing, in fact quite the opposite is true. Strong pressure is applied on professors to produce scholarly writings and research papers that any one who finds time for undergrads at all has to be applauded. How about easing some of the pressure and creating an atmosphere where students and faculty can mingle in relaxed yet learned conversation? Let us have a quiet pub which would allow this kind of exchange. Don’t get me wrong, by far the majority of professors are excellent in the classroom but how about humanizing the teacher-student relationship a bit. I have several professors with whom I would like to talk for hours but I often feel that I am being gently pushed off. Are the examples of Aristotle and Plato gone forever from our society? John Mason

.Each. of usmust act against social ills No one will act for us; no one will decide for us. The problems facing the world will not be resolved unless individuals everywhere take measures to alter their own lifestyles. Only then will the governments we elect have the authority to enforce these alterations by law. Expecting government to solve problems when we take no corrective action ourselves is foolish: we elect politicians assuming they will work to maintain or improve our current lifestyles. Take, for example, the health of our global environment, Quickly vanishing rainforests, burned to make way for short-term livestock production, profit multinational foodcorporations, but-these organizations do not consume their wares. The hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica, a gap the size of the continental United States, is not getting any smaller. But the firms that use damaging chloroflourocarbons (CFCs) in manufacturing make products all of us use refrigerators and air conditioners, foam products and solvents, even computers. Just to touch on the consequences of ozone destruction, increasing skin cancer rates and decreasing crop yields can be expect ed. The word boycott cumes to mind, as does the word recycle, but constructive action need not be so radical. Simply driving in a full car could cut nitrous auto emissions by three quarters (most cars, with room for four, have only one passenger). There is no excuse for an attitude that says nothing can be done. No threat posed against the environment, by individual or organization, is beyond our control, most of these problems being our fault. Pressure on the agents which produce CFCs must originate in indim vidual decisions that take actions to limit their use. The hidden costs of environmentally destructive products can no longer be borne by the planet alone: we will have to pay in cash for safe products now, or in lives for our laziness. One way or another, all of us will change the way we live. Marc Bmmtowski

Our student leaders They carried signs saying “No Dollars No Scholars,” They chanted “Hey ho, hey ho, underfunding has got to go.” Five hundred students took to the steps of Queen’s Park because they cared about the quality of a degree and the quality of student life at some of the best universities in Canada. Because Ontario university students protest so rarely, thi media took the event extrkmely seriously. It’s too bad that more students didn’t take the event as seriously. Publicity was gained, so the event was a marginal success. But, the showing-at the march pointed out many short failings in the university community. We had the University of Toronto student council withholding support because they felt the protest march was doomed to failure. I place this on the same pathetic level as. the anecdote about the apathy club cancelling its meeting due to a lack of interest. Waterloo had the largest contingency of students at 72. This is a ten-fold improvement over the last UW protest several years ago. The improvement was the result of on-campus student media coverage and promotion.

Federation of Student info booths in the faculty buildings probably drew a few more protestors. The impressive Ontario Federation of Students’ posters probably aroused a few additional persons for the -Toronto trek. The free bus ride to and from Toronto and the promise of a party at the Brunswick House nabbed Waterloo’s bus a few shoppers and fun bunch of guys and girls. The Federation of Students actively backed the OFS rally. Outgoing and incoming Fed presidents participated in the march. The Feds had a Waterloo protest organizer in place. At issue were improvements to the availability and affordability of student housing: exclusionary bylaws; dismal Ontario Student Assistance Plan living allowances, and underfunding. All of these issues should concern UW’s Federation of Students daily. It is true, the OFS left only a month lead up time before the march. It is true, OFS promotional posters did not arrive on campus immediately. But, why, when the provincial organizational body of university students gives student leaders the opportunity to speak out and be

heard by the average Canadian on the 6 o’clock news, didn’t the Federation of Students at Waterloo pick up on the organization of the event with a little more zeal a-rid effort. Speeches could have been made in the Great Hall of the Campus Centre. Class rooms could have been visited. The campaign could have been much more impressive. I Waterloo was first in the numbers which showed up at Queen’s Park on March 10,1988, but we ought never be satisfied with mediocrity. In response to an excellent letter to the editor in the March 4 Imprint, it is quite true that grovelling for a few extra bucks is pathetic when we should be protesting injustices around the world. I suggest that we can better help others if we are trained and educated at a world class level. Today’s university students are not without social consciousness. The middle class undergraduate requires that student leaders responsibly mobilize the student movement of the eighties; otherwise, the status quo looks awfully good. Mike

Anti-ho,mosexual To the editor, One of the little pleasures I allow myself in this lifi lies in disassembling the arguments of rabid anti-homosexuals like Jean Saintvil, who wrote to Imprint last week. Mr. Saint-vil’s confused and rambling letter, however, offers me lean pickings when it comes to argument. The letter’s central assertion seems to be that, because of our lifestyle, I and others like tie are an “evident danger” to society. In ways which Mr. Saint-vi1 does not disclose, we have wrought extensive “harm on civilization.” What evidence does Mr. Saintvi1 bring to support his position? Well, of course, there’s a lot of stuff from the Bible, which doesn’t much impress me, since I’m an atheist. 1 As far as I’m concerned, Mr. Saint-vi] ought not to.believe everything he reads in books. There’s also a vague allusion to the fall of Rome. This is always a favorite among moralists of Mr. Saint-vil’s stripe, and is usually accompanied by an argument that goes something like this: homosexuality was tolerated in ancient Rome: Rome eventually fell; ergo, Rome fell because homosexuality

was tolerated. I leave the reader to find the flaws in this imaginative little syllofiism. Nature, -we are told, “discourages homosexuality.” It seems odd to hear a biologist discuss nature, whatever that is, as though it haa some anthropomorphic reality, presumably as a little old woman who goes around saying “Mate, damn you!” to reptiles and dogs. This deserves about as much serious consideration as would a dentist’s belief in the tooth fairy, Whatever form this supposed discouragement takes, it hasn’t succeeded in stamping me out. . There’s more, but it’s so disconnected and vague that it’s difficult to string together anything to refute. There a a couple of gratuitous references to child molesting, of course, without which no attack on homosexuals would be complete. It is pointed out that children .are not produced through

Low,opinion is not shared by majority To the editor, Re: Marvin Hinz’s letter about the Model Parliament (Emprimt, March 11).

Imprint disappoints a To the editor, Imprint continues to disappoint me. I waited in vain for an apology for the publication of a insulting letter about RPM Records several weeks ago. Why doesn’t one of your smartass Imprint staff go and ask how hurt the ladies there were at being humiliated in a local newspaper? On to this week’s outrages. The very height of journalistic irresponsibility is character assassination from behind the, shield of freedom of the press. I don’t care who BLVD are or how bad their latest album was, there is no possible justification for printing Peter Dedes’ review (pg. 22). Words fail me. I hope MCA’s legal department sues you into bankruptcy. As for Anna Done’s “Macaroni and Cheese Guide++ review (pg. 20j, I fail to see why she found it necessary to insult Engineering students in general. I guess that when you have nothing useful to say, you can always resort to insult. Especially when you have no fear of reprisal, because the paper you write for doesn’t publish rebuttals, I suppose that the point is that if you people can’t come up with anything intelligent to print, then save us all a lot of trouble and don’t bother printing anything. I support Imprint as an exercise in small-scale journalism, but if you have no standards of professionalism, then you are not serving anyone and 1 will withdraw my support and encourage others to do so as well.

What Mr. Hinz doesn’t mention inhis letter is that his opinions are not that of the majority who participated in the Model, and he doesn’t say he was part of the group that, more than not, ended up on the losing end of the argument. I In his letter, he says “the NDP . . . had a heck of a time getting anything done, thanks to the remaining and abstaining Liberals.” As part of the PC representation at the Model, Parliament, I feel personally insulted that the NIJP wouldn’t recognize or give credit to the PCs for stalling their government, and eventually defeating them. I am also shocked that a self;proclaimed NDPer would find stalling tactics and delaying tactics apprehensible, when that’s exactly what his party does all of the time in the national legislature. [This tactic is used by allparties in opposition when they don’t get their way), I’m sure that if Mr. Hinz looks back at the records of the proceedings, he will find the PCs were responsible for the success or failure of five of the seven bills presented that day. And he will also discover that we were responsible for the defeat of his government. And, I woild remind Mr. Hinz and the rest of his NDPers what I said in the Model Parliament: the reason that the NDP government can’t get anything done is because their party philosophy is so fundamentally different from either ours or the Liberals, that they couldn’t possibly maintain power in a minority government. He failed to mention the uncalled-for tactic that the NDP used at the beginning of the day to set the stage for the proceedings. Namely, refusing to stand for the reciting of the Lord’s Prayer, This proce’dure is parliamentary tradition, and members are not forced to recite the prayer if they don’t want to. His comments just seem like sour grapes to me and my party. Ted McCollum

seeks refuge in bigotry he clearly knows very little. He stands, revealed as yet anther frightened and ignorant young

news

On Wednesday, February 24, 125 members of the Pittsburgh gay and lesbian community, the Rainbow Coalition and the Thomas Merton Center gathered in front of the City/County Building to protest the February 14 raid on the Traveler’s Social Club, an East Liberty gay after-hours bar. The raid was conducted by the State Police (in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board), Pittsburgh Police and the Pittsburgh Fire Department. Organizers of the protest claim the authorities were brutal in their treatment of the club’s members. David Stewart, a member of CRY OUT!, one of the gay and lesbian groups participating in the protest said: “State police knocked people down steps, called them ‘faggots’ and beat them with black jacks. Two men were beaten so badly they had to be hospitalized. We believe the raid was simply a pretext for harassing the lesbian and gay communities.” Assistant Fire Chief Kevin Mellot described the raid as “No more than a legal fire inspection.” Witnesseg:say two state police agents at ted to enter the club at 4 a.m. but were.re since they didn’t have membership cards. when a club member opened the do approximately 18 agents flooded t doors.

Information received from the Chief of the Pittsburgh Fire Department indicates that a building inspection may not be carried out without either the owner’s permission or a warrant. The agents dispersed throughout the club and instructed the 185 patrons present to proceed downstairs, where they would be carded and questioned. Written statements from 26 eyewitnesses describe in detail the abusive language and abusive actions of the agents. For example, agents referred to the patrons as ‘faggots’, and ‘faggot motherfuckers’, and agents. struck patrons with nightsticks and blackjacks. One agent, while placing handcuffs on a patron, said “what’s wrong, I thought you faggots ienjoy this.” The raid was conducted by a joint task force of agents from the State Police, Pittsburg,h Fire Department, and Liquor Control Board. Thomas Cangey, who had been an LCB investigator before the bureau was dismantled, participated in the raid. Five. years ago, Cangey had led five succes-,’ sive raids on Travelers over the course of five weeks. As a result, an injunction was issued to bar the-LCB and Cangey from further raids on Travelers.

At approximately 4 a.m. on February 14, two state agents in plain clothing approached the outer door to Travelers Social Club and requested entry.

They displayed a card which was not issued by the club and were asked to leave. Several minutes later, when’ a member opened the door to leave the club, approximately pi agents in plain clothes, some wearing badges, flooded through the door. Upon entering, one of the agents identified himself as a state police officer. The owner of the club stepped forward to identify himself and ask what the officers were doing there. The state police officer, in the presence of witnesses, warned the owner, “shut the fuck up or you’re going to jail.” No warrant was presented, and permission to

The raid detailed above was an excuse to harass the gay community in-Pittsburgh on the part of the officials invol;ed. Yes, this did happen in the United States. Perhaps we would like to think that such things could not happen here in Canada. But in 1981, similar raids occurred in Toronto. Are we really so much

No such thing as “normal”,only To the editor, In the past, I have always read “gay-bashing” letters with some amusement, but Jean E. Saint-vii’s letter (Imprint, March II) stretched ’ credibility beyond

belief. To begin, Jean, the “normal” family has changed over the course of history. Even as little as 50 years ago there were “extended”

had facts all-wrong To the editor, I

agree

wholeheartedly with Wilf Ruland (Imprint, March 11) when he says all sides of the nuclear energy debate must be made clear if one is to fully understand this important issue. Unfortunately, he then goes on to mislead your readership with a number of questionable facts and less important (but suitably blown out of proportion) details. There are negative points to nuclear energy, but sadly Mr. Ruland has missed most of them. In the end I feel he has done more damage to the image of

the

Canadian nuclear industry than might be deserved, simply because many people are more than eager to be lead by people like him (and if this was his goal, then he

probably

succeeded).

I include corrections or elaborations to be made to the four points he presented inhis letter: 1) No one was ever killed at Chalk River due to the accidents in 1958 and 1952 (not 1950), and no one was “seriously contaminated”. In any case, comparing these two low-power research reactors (two of the first ones built in the world) to today’s world-leading CANDUs is like comparing the Model T to a Ferrari. Furthermore, it is extremely unlikely that the accident at Three Mile Island could ever have occured in Canada, and virtually impossible for the chain of events that lead to Chernobyl’s disaster to take place in a CANDU plant, It may interest Mr. Ruland .to know that core mertdowns have been p‘ractically ruled out in a CANDU reactor. 2) Any reactor design in the world has. the need for expensive maintenance, just as any complex technology known to man does. Such costs, taken into the perspective of a reactor’s lifetime, still do not affect the position of nuclear energy as the cheapest way to mass-produce electricity. The ability to refit a reactor - a uniquely Canadian capability should be looked upon as a way of - significantly expanding the reactor’s lifetime (something unheard of elsewhere in the world), On the subject of efficiencies, Mr. Ruland fails to point out that five of the top 10 reactors in the world [there are more than 400) are CANDUs. Instead, he states that Gentilly 2 has been running at three per cent efficiency; which is blatantly false. Gentilly 2 has in fact been running at 79.4 per cent capacity. Perhaps Mr. Ruland is thinking of Gentilly 1, a prototype BLW reac’tor which is not even a CANDU and has been decommissioned for about two years now. 3) Nuclear bombs are indeed unfortunate, but the U.S. will continue to arm their warheads whether we sell them tritium or not. This is a political issue, no a technological one, with little relevance to a discussion on CANDY design merits and flaws.

4) When discussing amount of nuclear waste, Mr. Rulanb- (like most critics) prefers to quote mass without taking density into account i although on a purely mass argument there is n+ contest either. There is ample room at Ontario Hydro’s ‘plants to store used fuel

The philosopher Anaxgoras taught the father of democracy, Pericles, not to be mislead by common supers titions, but to seek the facts. So far, Jean, I have not seen any facts other than that regarding procreation. Show me that homosexual people are causing substantial damage if they raise a family and then 1’11listen. Despite the perfect, “normal” family you describe there are still gay people around. I don’t believe that if a child lived with homasexuals, that I - it is destined to be homo- _ sexual, despite its role models.

After having looked into your crystal ball, you’ve decided we are racing forward to the Day of Judgment. As for the comment that Canada need not live to see a homosexual prime minister, it is a little late for this fear, Jean. It is strong1.y suspected that William Lyon MacKenzie King was a homosexual and Canada does not seem to have fallen into total ill-repute. Historically speaking, men said the same about worn& in government. Thanks to people like Margaret Thatcher and Indira Ghandi, some people have realized that women Ere just as capable as men, if not more so. Besides, what does it matter what their sexual orientation is? Do you assume that they think only with their’ genitals? Or perhaps, since you are so obsessed with their sex lives, that is the only

years. Research into deep underground storage is well underway, and no one involved is doubtful that there will be a location ready when needed. -On the more important issue of toxicity, Mr. Ruland doesn’t seem to understand the concept. The only way spent fuel can do hafm to humans is if it is crushed up and ingested. Deep burial clearly prevents this. In the unlikely event that ground water [a rarity around these selected sites) dissolves the lead, concrete, and ceramic, it has.been shown that by 100 years after removal from the rector, the plutonium in the fuel is less toxic than the lead it is buried in. There are still bugs to be ironed out, but clearly we have given ourselves enough time to remove them. 51 Finally, Mr. Ruland brings.up the co$t of decommissioning a nuclear reactor, This is an anticipated expense which Ontario Hydro has taken into account when setting its pay rates, creating a special fund for such needs. Such has been the case for many years now, and as everyone well knows, Ontario’s rates are still among the l&v&t in the world. Furthermore, the total cost of electricity generation from nuclear power, including construction, operation, nlaintenance, and decommissioning, is about half what Ontario pays for its coal-fired stations, despite Mr. Ruland’s allegations. Instead of running down the Canadian Nuclear Association’s TV ads, I suggest Mr. Ruland phone the toll free number given at the end of each one - he needs to tidy up his statement alittle before throwing them out at the public.

You yourself say “any heterosexual involved in a relationship where love iandcommitment can be found will testify that indeed it is good.” Love, sharing, commitment, support, and intimacy are goals to which we aspire. Do you believe homosexual men and women are ~incapable of these feelings? Tell me, do”you not love your friends of -the same sex? The one who always has a shoulder to cry on or an ear -with which to listen? Love, sharing, support, intimacy, and commitment are all there. The only difference is that you don’t sleep with himlher, Love can be and is manifested in a variety of ways.

Come supper time just add vegetables, curry or Italian spice, salt and some water if necessary and cook until the rice is tender, If some of this mixture is left over you can continue to cook it while you’re eating until it is very thick - it can be used as a sandwich spread the-next day.

When the rice is tender eal it with butter, honey, milk powder and some walnuts or cashews, In themorning stir some hot milk and honey into the leftovers and heat it careful11 for a hot rich breakfast.

To the editor.

To the editor, Three cheers for Ted Carlton’s “The Idea of a University” column. Over the course of-the term, Carlton has given us an excellent review of the meaning sf higher education: discussing its historical development, its present (though somewhat impure) form, and the democratic options open to students to help shape academic policy. For UW, his message is especiallv relevant and timelv: few institutions have d&iatea farther from the original “Ideas of a Uniand, with the recent reversity”,

lease of the Fourth Decade Report, the time is ripe for informed dialogue over our future. Let us all take up Carlton’s chal: lenge to participate actively in the debates, or at least think critically, about the future directions a Waterloo education should take. Since “The Ideas of a University” colunin provides a sound base for such activities it would be a great idea if Imprint, perhaps with the cooDeration of the Feds, made avaIlable reprints of the column.

Glass containers make up eight per cent o P the total residential. waste stream, for an approximate total of 1,563.506 lbs. annually, or 790 tons of glass per day. At glass recycling plants in Ontario, the old bottles are crushed to make cullet, mixed with Dther ingredients, melted down and molded into new containers. 1s Ontario, 20-30 per cent cu&t mix is used in the manufacture of clear bottles and up tu 70 per cent cullet for green bottles.

When scrap iron is used instead of iron or to make steel, mining wastes are reduced by $7 per cent, air pollutants by 86 per cent and water pollutants by 76 per cent (Recycling Council of Ontario). Newspapers make up 10 per cent of-the total residential waste, stream in Ontario, This equals approximately 977 tons per day! Old neyspapers can be de-inked and used to make newsprint. The only de-inking facility in Ontario demands an increasingly large and steady suppl of old newspapers. Some 190,000 tons of recyc r ed newspaper will be used in 1888, compared to 70,000 tons in 1987. An additional 45,000 tons of old newspapers are used annual1 in the production of lightweight cardboard Tor cereal baxes, shoe boxes etc. Seventeen trees remain standing for every ton of newspaper recycled.

Church women should rebel, says sister by Jaaquia Griffin Imprint drff “Women: Icon, Rebel, and Saint”. This was thetitle of the 1888 Devlin Lecture held at Seigfried Hall March 11. It brought to UW a surprising look at the changes being fought for women in the church. Sister Joan Chittister, internationally renowned speaker, gave some insight into women’s inferior place in church and society.’ She states: “For so many years, so few women do not know the full recognition that they deserve and as a result sell them* selves and their lives for far less than they are worth,” Chittister does not make any excuses for the church’s approach to women, and openly states that the pres-

references to blatant sexism from, philosophers, psycholog&s, and theologians. Until the early part of the 20th century, Canon law allowed men to beat their wives as long as the device used was no thicker than their thumb. Even such r’evered theologians as St. Thomas Aquinas were quoted as placing women in a highly negative light. She is greatly concerned with the lack of representations of women in the church. “Nowhere does sexism shine in its brightest glory than in local parishes.” With so many seminaries nearing vacancy, she sees that the church must finally come face to face with the issue of greater involvement of women. Chittister said it is time for women give up their roles as

Marc Brzuetowski Imprint staff l

University of WaterIoo Head Librarian Murray Shepherd does not want to “get into splitting hairs,” but he believes the new on-line catalogue, run by the only GEAC 9000 in operation, is unequalled in potential. Everything in the library system - print,, non-print, goverrjment publications is acce@ble thrqjh the new system, and he feel& its multi-task pro&sing “makes it more advanced.” :‘-i Some; dispute had arisen over an earIkr Imprint article claiming the’syste‘m made the library “first in technology.” Asked to comment, the University of Guelph’s Head Librarian said Waterloo’s system was “different, but not necessarily better. It really depends on . . the requirements for the library.‘“Shepherd called those remarks “fair” and insisted no hostilities exist between the libraries. Thankfully, the two sides have pulled back from the brink of what threatened to be a very destructive conflict. This mutual retreat is especially comforting at a time when solidarity between libraries and campuses is desperately needed to solve more pressing issues, like sports rivalries. Shepherd also said electronic ‘security systems, such as those in place at Guelph, Laurier, and Kitchener Pubiic Library, “are, to me, offensive.” He hopes the new catalogue will be a better security system: “if library materials are easy to find and use, theft will be deterred.”

The University of Waterloo does not have any known investmerits in corn anies with financial interests in the Republic of South Africa, ut no directivi has been given to the university’s money managers to ensure a policy of disinvestment is followed, Dean of Students Ernie Lucy said last week. Lucy, who is also the current chairman of the UW pension and benefit committee, outlined the current investment policy in response to a request from interested students concerned about disinvestment in South Africa. The pension and benefit fund, which comprises the largest portion of UW monies invested on the open market, cannot be bound by a “no South Africa”condition without the consent of the faculty and staff who contribute to the fund. Such a referendum has not been requested by the membership, he said, The second portion of university money on the market is largely short-term (90- to 120-day) investments in which the question of what is being supported can hardly be raised. UW, because of its youth as an institution, is not in a comptirable position with endowment money that long established U of T and Queen% find themselves. Therefore certain tricky investment decisions have not been faced yet. Lucy said the university is very sensitive to doncerns in the area of South * African investment and the matter ,will,:contia@e to be open to debate.

Firstly; Canada’s position in the world has been changing, The country can no longer rely on the sale of resources for a large portion of its international trade. Third World nation’s are under-cut tting Canadian sources on the world market because of their technological improvements and- dire need of foreign exchange. Simultaneously exploiting Canadian supplies is becoming increasingly expensive. This change is forcing Canadians to look differently at themselves and the global economy, said Neil.

changed. Despite efforts to the contrary by past federal governments, Canadian businesses have looked more and more to the U.S. to market their products. The U.S. is the easiest market to enter and sell in, yet long-range strategy has been difficult because of the lack of an encompassing trade agreement between the two nations, he said. Double standards exist and enforcement is inconsistent. With the exception of japan, Canada is the only industrial nation which does not have such a trade pact with its major partner. Now Canada is close to reaching that goal; Neil said the agreement will be approved in both the Canadian and US. legislative assemblies.

ANC’s Tambo calls for more sanctions HARARE, Zimbabwe, (IPSISIS) - The recent banning of anti-apartheid groups and the arrest of church ieaders are powerful arguments for the imposition of sanctions against Pretoria, says the leader of the outlawed African National Congress (ANC). Speaking to journalists at a news conference March 2 in the Zimbabwean capital, ANC leader Oliver Tambo said that Western countries must go beyond the “mere feeling of abhorrence” for aptirtheid and impose sanctions A the only effective action to end racial segregation in South Africa. “The recent events are a call to the United States, Britain, especiaily the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and the Federal Republic of Germany to support the international demand for sanctions,” Tambo said. Pretoria has banned 17 antiapartheid organizations and restricted the activities of 18 individuals in its latest move to clamp down on the country’s opposition. South Africa’s largest antiapartheid group, the United Democratic Front (UDF), the Detainees Parents Support Committee (DPSC) and the National Education Crisis Committee (NECC) were among those groups affected by the ban, The country’s largest trade union federation, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU], was subject to separate restrictions, which prevent it from carrying out political activities such as campaigning for disinvestment and sanctions by foreign companies

or governments, or calling for the legalization of outlawed political organizations. “There is something brittle about apartheid these days since it seems to feel humanitarian organizations like the DPSC pose a threat,” the ANC leader said. The bannings of groups committed to non-violence also shows that “a great deal is no longer holding together in apar-

theid structures,” Tambo added. The ANC leader said that the bannings would not end the struggle for a just and democratic society. “Bannings have become the order of the day. We have never succumbed to bannings. For us this is simply a fresh challenge. A demonstration of the weakening of the regime,+’ Tambo said. “Our response must be to in-

tensify our struggle+’ realizing that Pretoria’s conduct signifies that it is in trouble+ he added, He said the recent arrest of church leaders also shows that Pretoria is acting out of desperation. Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Rev. Allan Boesak were among church leaders arrested, and later released+ as they staged a march in Cape Town to hand a

petition to Parliament protesting the banning orders. The church leaders had announced on February 26 that they would take up the struggle left by the banned organizations. Pretoria’s arrest of the church leaders “throws a direct challenge to churches and religious leaders to move to the forefront of the struggle against apartheid which is evil,” Tambo declared.

UN wants ruling on PLO eviction NEW YORK, (IPSIISIS) - The reconvened 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations voted overwhelmingly March 2 to -seek an advisory judgment from the World Court on whether the United States and the United Nations should go to arbitration over the U.S. decision to close the Palestine Liberation Organization’s [PLO) observer mission to the United Nations. The General Assembly accepted a resolution embodying the decision by 143 votes, with Israel casting the only negative vote and the United States not taking part. After the vote, the U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Herbert Okun, issued a statement saying that the U.S. administration “has made no final decision concerning the application or enforcement of recently passed United States legislation with respect to the permanent observer mission of the Pales-

tine Liberation Organization to the United Nations.” Okun said that for these reasons, the US government views as “unnecessary” and “premature” the holding of the resumed session of the 42nd General Assembly. Stressing that the U.S. government regards the issue as serious, since it involves the important questions of both U.S. and international law, Okun said the U.S. administration has been in regular and frequent contact with the U.N. secretariat concerning an appropriate resolution of the matter. In December, President Ronald Reagan signed into law a bill which could force the closure of the PLO mission. The measure is to go into force on March 21, The administration+ the United Nations and the State Department all agree that should the .law be implemented, the 1947 Headquarters Agreement could be breached.

Doe critics shutdown MONROVIA (IPS/ISIS) - The Liberian authorities have suspended indefinitely the independent Suntimes newspaper and the official journal of the opposition Liberia Action Party (LAP) Cocorico, Announcing the suspension order, Information Minister Emmanuel Bowier told journalists that the LAP newsletter had published several articles which “had castigated the government of President Samuel Doe.’ He said the articles were aimed at causing instability and tension. The Cocorico edition of February 23 published a series of articles with titles including

Notice

“National Democratic Party of Liberia (NDPL) power struggle surfaces” and “Samuel Doe’s government sells Liberia’s sovereignty” and calling for mass action against the government. All of the articles were reprinted from the United States magazine The Nelly, which is run by the Liberian group “Liberians for democratic action’+. Bowier said, for its part, the Suntimes had been closed down because the paper’s staff were “not properly accredited”. He said they failed to keep within the government’s prescribed rules and regulations but he did not spell these rules out.

the

that

in our kind of rational th&.$ht processes. It is very clear but is expressed in a language much closer to the unconscious reality so you will find the same kind of images in myths, fairy tales and religions,” said Cann. It is not that dreams were created in a way to purposely make them difficult to understand, but simply that our ration&l mind has evolved so far from being in touch with that kind of language. A metaphor may help focus our attention on the underlying dilemma represented in the dream. As an examle Cann said, “You can differentiate Ii etween the emotional impact of a Christian seeing the crucifixion image and the impact of the same person seeing a stop sign. The emotional impact of one tends to have much greater powerto it, the other is much more consciously understood and simply stands for something else we know the meaning of.” One recent theory of dreams is that they are random discharges designed to purge useless programs from the brain. “Dreams are nonsense and so we should forget them as quickly as possible because they are just signs of poor or disordered programming of the brain,” said Cann who didn’t appear to have much faith in this concept. Then there are the more traditional theories advanced by psychoanalysts like Sigmund Freud end his contemporary Carl Jung* “In the Freudian approach to dreams, the dream is a disguised image of some actual content which is often seen as being uncomfortable for the conscious mind to be aware of. In the Jungian field you’ll see more of an emphasis on the dream as expressing in the best possible way, by using- metaphors, what the meaning of the situation is,” said Cann. ” If you face a difficult situation today and it arouses some emotions that you don’t quite know how to handle or what to do with, then you may dream that night in a form which tries to propose some kind of solution to this conflict or emotional struggle,” he said. If you were under a lot of stress and anxiety to complete a paper you might dream of a sword fight with a band of the Cardinal’s Guards in which you easily defeat them all, The unconscious would be bringing up the idea of the heroic

“‘%&&&uage

dream.

The

guards

would represent all those negative anxieties you had and the dream would be proposing a kind of solution by pointing out the attitude you need to complete the paper.

Cann offered the dream of a person walking along and noticing a’ giant building rising up into the sky. “From a Freudian point of view this [the building) could refer to a phallic image, From a Jungian view, this could reflect an excessive intellectualism, someone who lives way up in their intellect all the time,” he said. “Dreams of flying or falling have often been seen in some traditional Freudian approaches as being indicative of sexuality through the loss of conscious control involved in sexual orgasm and also the euphoric experience of it. “In the Jungian’view, there would be tendency to link it with mythological images, in this case the. Greek myth of Icarus who flew too close to the sun and the wax in his wings melted and he plunged into the sea’. That’s a metaphor that means you got too’ full of your ability+ in some area and got inflated and step ed out farther than you really have t E e ability to handle.” Although both Freud and Jung re.spect the individuality of dream symbols, Freud tends to gravitate to the idea of fixed or universal sexual sym-

“The language of the dream is at first completely incomprehensible.” bols while Jung advocates the universality of archetypal’ images. That is to say, according to Jung, we all have a ‘mother’ archetype but the actual meaning of the ‘mother’ symbol depends and varies with our personal experience. Since the images in our dreams come from a society to which we all belong, it is possible that we may use the same imagery to express the same meaning . for some things. A growing papular interest in dreams has prompted one Western graduate to offer a workshop on dream ,appreciation. While taking some courses in religious studies which approached the study of dreams in small groups, V.J. Houseman found that a lot of people were interested in taking part in similar sessions. She and fellow coordinator, Sandy Cameron, leail discussions on a dream that one of the eight members of a group has divulged. “Often they say that if you have a psychiatrist or psychologist running it [the session]. it inhibits rather than brings out people. It’s better if you have someone who just understands the process and provides [the information) because it really isn’t me telling people what their dreams mean,” said

come aware because no one can analyze your dreams for you. It is something you have to do for yourself. The whole evening would be spent sharing the dream and then we would work through various exercises. It is really actual participation on the part of the people and you need somebody to act as leader to make sure that they don’t ~T get off track. .: The reason she takes the group approach is that, “a lot of times when ~ you try to discover something like t&s,. for yourself+ you miss a lot which the L< .~ group brings out. It also teaches peopli.” ‘! how to develop faster whereas on the&;. . own they struggle. We keep it limited : ‘3 .,. to eight people b,ecause dreams are ‘. very intimate and very personal. ‘: .: ‘:’ “One man came into the group and couldn’t remember any dreams and found that in childhood, he had had a nightmare so bad th,at he didn’t and I couldn’t remember his dreams. We were able to work with that nightmare to a .,“... point where he dreamt again. He felt that through this he was able to move:.. ahead even as an adult because he hag! C overcome all the terror that was asso-’ I ciated, with the original nightmare,” recounted Houseman. So what type of people concern I: themselves with such intangibles a&: ” ! y’, dreams? “’ “ I’ve had nurses and teachers, profBtiGc”‘l’ sional people. I think the people that ‘.. come are people who have fulfilled c,:. k their lives to some extent and these airi ; people who are in their upper 30s whd’: are successful in their career but are ;:r.,>.‘1 looking for a deeper meaning about ;,‘> what life is all about. They are at a stage in their life that they want to ’ enrich it more,” said Houseman. “I’ve noticed people are working on. _..y: ” issu& to do with the feeling life and ‘:.I. that’s different from emotion, Feeling ’ has more to do with your values. In our :, culture which is very intellectual and I :’ very thinking oriented, that side of life .’ is often left kind of undeveloped. It’s ‘. essentially about healing the soul,” said .’ ’ Cann.

ANNUAL

Given of the

MEETING

of the Federation of Students, University of Waterloo, a corporation under the laws of the Province of Ontario, to be held on Tuesday, March 29th, 1988 id 8:00 p.m. in Room 3001 of Needles Hall.

Restructuring

.

of *the Federation

Most of the business at this meeting will deal with the proposals of the Structural Review Committee, a committee of Students’ Council, to completely replace the By-Laws of the Federation, The committee worked to make the By-Laws more consistent, to make it easier for,more people to be involved in the Federation, and, to reduce the I .-r size of the Executive Board.

What are the By-Laws?

What is a Commission?

Every organization has to have’rules under which it operates and-the Federation is no exception.

A Commission deals with specific matters coming under the jurisdiction of a Board. For example, the Homecoming Cdmmission of the Board ‘of Entertainment ensures that the Federation has a programme for Homecoming.

Who decides what

the By-Laws

will be?

.

Every undergraduate student at Waterloo is a member of the Federation and as such have a say in what the rules we use are. That means you!

All of the By-Law changes which will be considered at the Annual General Meeting are available in the Federation Office (CC 235) from 9:OO a.m. -- 430 p.m., Monday - Friday.

are the proposed

changes?

The old By-Laws are a muddle of Boards and Commissions each seeming to have the same powers. There is little consistency and much confusion. And, on top of all that, our first ByReview Law is number 34. The Structural Committee decided to fix this by estabrishing Commissions which report to Boards which, This makes report to Students’ Council. everything much more logical, much less confusing, and lets us create a nice pictorial outline of the Federation as shown on the next page4 The proposed By-Law 1 is the general By-Law of the Federation and determines2 the rules for running elections, how Students’ Council works, how finances are handled, etc. The remaining proposed By-Laws define the Boards and the Commissions.

What is a Board? A Board takes care of issues. that affect all students. Each Board has a Chairperson who sits on the Executive along with the President and the two ViceAPresidents* Each Board also has a number of commisions under it. ‘ ‘. i -_ _ __ I . _

Who can vote at the meeting? At 8:OO p.m., Tuesday, March 29 in Needles Hall 3001 the Annual General Meeting will take place. If you are an undergraduate student, either full of part-time and are registered this term, yau can attend and vote. Don’t forget your student card!

Razorbacks. by Cbria Wodekou Imprint rtaff The weather outside was frightful and we ended up skidding on our backsides for 15 minutes before we made it to the safer (?) confines of Fed Hall, but hey, it was Saturday Night like The Razorbacks say, so far be it from us to let a mild case of multiple fractures keep us from raving dn with everyone’s fave cats from Toronto way.

For ears that have heard Touched By The Hand Of God and Strange Love (no, we’re not finished hacking New Order and Depeche Mode just yet) about a hundred times too many over Fed Hall’s PA., The Razorbacks were a dust devil of fresh air. No-frills, back-to-basics, honest, rootsy - aww, supply your, own adjective, here; Saturday night was as fun and energetic as rock ‘n’ roll has been at Fed Hall in a dog’s age. The obvious point of reference would be The

Now if only they’d treat us to a version of Sunset Of My Tears. But there were plenty of other tunes to cry in your beer over, and a hell of a lot more that even managed to get the dantiefloor aswarm with shuffling blurs of normally Ieaden feet. Favourites from Go To Town like Lower Beverley and Saturday Night had rugs getting cut into shreds, as did the de rigeur covers of rockabilly standards like Carl Perkins’ Honey Don’t and a couple of surprises: an ear-splitting thrashing of Sir Diddley’s Mona and a revved-up My Generalion that even had some mod named Townshend or something scratching his head, muttering something about having to demolish 12 banks of amps to make that much noise. By the way, any fears we might have had about the lavish, cavernous space of Fed Hall not being conducive to the friendly, ad lib atmosphere of their afternoon Queen Street sidewalk ‘gigs’ were unfounded. All The Razorbacks’ trademarks that have endeared them to anyone within earshot were there in abundance.

Both Kelly and new Razorback singer/guitarist Donny Cartwright, who got his nicks (sorry) in with The Cartwrights, spent half the night on their backs as if their guitars were trying to rape them, and the other half breaking their strings, while bad apple “Jailhouse” Joe Myke slapped the hell out of his upright bass and climbed aH over it like it was a set of monkeybars. Meanwhile, Don DeKouchay was content to clobber his snare and tom and let loose shrieks that would give Screamin’ Jay Hawkins the willies. ’

With a burst of unexpected energy P and M dash to the little red sex mobile. It’s going to be a good night. Scene two: At the Hoodoo lounge, two hours before the show is supposed to start. Already half full, but more people arrive filling the place within 45 minutes. Our two heroes play more pool and drink plenty of beer (but not too many, don’t want to end up face down in the toilet and miss the show.] Scene three: Enter the band, Donny Nichilo on keyboards, Jerry Porter on drums, Garret Patten on sax, Greg Rzab on bass. The crowd begins to push their way to the stage. A good deal of pushing and shoving, kind of like wrestlemania, but no complaining.

Scene three and four: A whole lot of solos by everyone in the band. Garret Patten carries the bulk of the solo work, that’s why he has a slightly malformed back. Greg Rzab performs a beauty of a basssolo. M becomes slightly disappointed when the keyboardists plays the harp for only one song - too bad ‘cause the guy was purdy good.

So an unqualified success for a pretty sharp band, but we kind of expected that. What we didn’t expect was the between-sets entertainment provided by a trio of kids who had what is likely the only other upright bass in town. Playing a selection of rockabilly covers, largely from The Stray Cats, these guys (try to get the name for you later) played with style and no end of guts and even proved to possess a reasonable standard of musicianship. Stick around for the summer and BEnt guarantees you’ll see ‘em at The Bomber. Maybe not worth cancelling your trip to Europe over, but keep your ears open.

by John Hymers Imprint staff

by Trevor Blair Imprint staff

I used to think that The Mission was a bad idea; I’m still not convinced of their validity, but the Tower of Strength EP is a step toward my good books. The Mission, a Wayne Hussey-led project that unfortunately divorced themselves from the goth gods The Sisters of Mercy, debuted with a hardedged sound that did more to point out the siilintiss of Hussey than to impress Sisters fans. But for some reason they got quite popular and even played a string of well received concerts on this side of the Atlantic. This no doubt encouraged them (and their record company), so they threatened the public with the promise of a new album. Well, the new album - Children - is not here yet, but the Tower of Strength EP is. The cover is scary for its typical Mission approaih: a two&eaded gothic eagle, self praise, a horrible lyric sample and in big letters: Produced by John Paul Jones

Remember when Lucifer was thrown out of Heaven? I do. Lucifer was a good angel who walked among the highest, but fell from grace when he let pride get the best of him, Wayne and The Mission now rule in the unacceptable arena of silly rock, but they make it enjoyable and they make it well. Their first epic from the forthcoming Chitdren album is Tower of Strength. Released through Polygram at the low, low price of under three bucks, this reasonably superb slab of tunes is unavoidable. Like the magazines near the cash register at the supermarket, Tower can be grabbed and thrown in along with your normal purchase at almost no burden to your pocketbook. Right then, a cheap thrill, but is it a good thrill? Well, yes, Tower of Strength is a good song: vibrant, acoustic, full of a repressed energy as yet unheard of from these boys - a song worth rejoicing over if only

But now for the good news. Hussey seems to have shed the electric guitars for some acoustic ones and he seems to have opted for melody. The EP includes two versions of the song Tower of Strength, the Full Length Version and the Bombay Mix. The see

Just look at that: glorious pit on the inner sleeve, looking like The Archies starring in tiight of the Living Dead. Goin’ straight up on my wall, this one is. But you’d be pretty dumb or rich or both to go throwing around nine or 10 bucks on a picture sleeve, so the music, dammit, what’s the music like? Well, depends on just what you mean by music, I guess. MasterDik is an offshoot of Ciccone Youth’s Tuff Titty Rap from their Into The Groovey EP

Iones’ idea?) and the acoustic guitar is solid and not mixed out of existence. There are two other tracks on the EP. Breathe is an instrumental that would be boring if it was carried past its present length of 2 minutes, 16 seconds. Fobienne (yeah, kind of a tribute to Missus Penn - and rumour has it that a full-length ‘Ciccone Youth LP is now available). Rude, crude, lewd, and spewed from the grey slime slithering around Thurston Moore’s godforsaken brain, may I suggest keeping this off your turntable on International Women’s, Day. Nothing Sonic Youth does really surprises me, but their coverof The Ramones’ Beat On The Brat threw me a bit - it’s done straight and pretty well at that, as rock ‘n’ roll as they’re likely to . get. ; wTicket .To I Ride1. is more What 1 expecrea, a live mockup of a wasted band not even trying to play a classic properly, and introduced by an interview with some sex-kitten purring European woman asking if they “play on the same style as Ze Jesus And Mary Chain.” The song is the answer to th’at one -

Youth don’t need mike and beer bottles to astheir audience. And who else but them would give a title (Troffix) to a five second scream of sheer and totally uncalled for guitar noise that probably carries a six-month jail sentence in some states. And you thought living next-door to airports was bad. Obviously, this ain’t for everyone, but then again, neither is intestinal scabies.

because of the flawless instrumental configuration - each instrument seems perfectly in place with each other. Even Wayne Hussys’ vocals and lyrics agree, lending themselves rather than imposing themselves on the structure of the sung. This EP contains both an eight- and an II-minute mix of the song; the latter being slightly better because the music/vocal ratio is greater. Other tracks, Fabiene and Breathe (instrumental] indicate what The Mission are capable of at both ends of the spectrum. Fabiene is annoying and uninspried. I can’t figure the lyrics out but why bother, it sounds something like “Kiss the glove” - too close to Spinal Tap, yet far from humourous. Breathe is beautiful; layer upon layer, gentle and seductive, but unfortuneately only two minutes long. Polygram has also rele ed a domestic CD single of sr ightly different configuration: Breathe has vocals - reasonable but unnecessary, and the’ II-minute mix of Tower of Strength is replaced by a cover of Aerosmiths’ Dream On (I’ve never been an Aerosmith fan but this sounds pretty good, although not on the same level as some of The Missions’ earlier covers like Wishing Well and Tomorrow Never Knows].

A good new release, easily worth the money, and a bit of time. Some may care that it is produced by John Paul Jones.

quality is good. T-Bone’s voice and guitar are up front, clearly recorded, and accompanied by horns, harp, and yotir standard drums and bass. T-Bone’s style is similar to Elmore James -and the country blues bf Sam Lightenin’ Ho$ kins.

If you’re looking for something new on the music scene in Canada, you might want to keep y?ur eyes- _on this aspiring group ot musicians. Neo A4 have a good sound that heralds the fun of summertime after trudging through a pissy winter. The beat is steady and rather infectious. The lead song for this IZ”, SQY This TO Me, is lighthearted in sound but skirts around the lurking Cshadows of past relationships. If you like songs- for the music, youI bop to this one; if you listen to the lyrics, you may not feel like dancing. Neo A4 put fort& a,great deal of energy in Say This To Me and could have a substantial dance success on their hands. The only obstacle could be the fact that Neo A4 is not a well-known band. If they got sufficient airplay here, even if it was AM, Neo A4 may live to fulfill some of the potential evident on this 12”. IS She, IS She, the short on the B-side, is a bit mellower but a good support for Say This To Me. It also shows a harder edgeto their instrumental content needed to give them more credibilit y. If Neo A4 can get an album out by this summer, which this 12” hints at, they may be able to make a name for themselves on the Canadian music scene by

year’s end. What the Canadian music scene really needs now is some more diversity with respect to the bands available. Neo A4 is an accessible band for both FM and AM audiences.

the Pogues come from the same country as James Joyce and they thusly and fearlessly feature . him not Him on the album cover posing with the band and all of them are wearing the Sam& thing perhaps it is a statement or

is nothing short of a masterpiece though it is really nothing different than anything that they’ve done before or that any con atriot folk band has ever done ri ut the Pogues make it accessible and lively and perhaps with much more liquor and yes a few of these songs have been heard on other pieces of vinyl like the title track it was on the Straight to Hell soundtrack but a much different version sounding decidedly more country and westernish the new version is more Irish folk and The Fairytale of New York which debdted as a single around Christmas which was rather fitting as it is a Yuletide song the album rocks with ita traditional melodies such as Bottle of Smoke which is about betting on the ponies and drinking which emerges often as a central theme of Pogues songs perhaps they are fans of Dylan Thomas as well as Joyce although Thomas is not featured

something but this is not the lace to discuss this as what the E and wears on the front cover has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the music that they can write and in fact Joyce did not write any of the songs on the album as he crossed the river while attending Finnegan’s Wake but I bet that the Pogues were there asingin’ and adrinkin’ and ahurtin’ but life goes on and somebody must bear the bowl of lather so they release their third full album ff I Should Fall From Grace With God which

on their album cover so with that in mind the next song that is talkable is The Turkish Song of the Damned which is a speed paced song with a message closely tied into its title the sectindr side of the album is slower than the breakneck first side though it is by no means weaker and therefore I recommend this album lest . you fall from grace with the Poguee as I end this stale imitation of Joyce oh is that what this is listening to If I Should Frill -From Grace With God is easier than reading Ulysses

by Don Kudo Imprint staff Reviewed this past fal1 as an Island import, CaIenture has recentIy been released domestically. The delegation of additional space for The Triffids’ North American debut album, serves a two-fold .gurpose - an introduction &his Australian band’s music after a series of import releases and a recommendation of an album of musical mastery. The presentation is dramatic and powerful, a result of both the clanging guitar tracks and serenading string arrangements. A mixture of these elements ride from song to song, smoothly flowing the relaxing melodies together. The subtle details of the instrumentation paint the musical backdrop, as the vocals pen the signature sound The Triffids collectively draw. Give producer Gil Norton credit. He, of Echo and the Bunnymen sound experience, graciously turns the dials, to highlight the narrative approach of David McComb. Accomplished with the likeness of attention that Ian McCullough receives on Bunnymen songs, McComb is the romantic root of The Triffids’ sound. Calenture has been described as a “masterpiece” and a “textof-the-times” by the British music press. Certainty high praise and/or preaching for an album, whose greatness grows with each revolution on the turntable, The purchase of Calenture won’t instantly transform your life or listening habits, but will be a long-term investment in enjoyment.

by John Ryan Imprint staff If you’ve ever wondered why many rock bands have two, even three guitars but seldom have more than one bass, here’s your answer: it sounds boring. At least that’s the impression Family Plot give with their two bass, no guitars, mucho synth line-up. Playing the same three or four songs over and over to get an album’s length 10 songs won’t win them many prizes for originality. The vocalist, Madeleine Morris has been described as “sweet, hot and haunting’*’ by E. O’Day of Music Scene magazine. “Edith Prickley with a bit of echo” says J. Ryan of Imprint. She doesn’t really sing so much as talk and moan over some syncopated, synthetic music. I want this record to be better, I don’t like listening to bad records three or four times to make sure I slag it in just the right way. They seem to be trying hard, the sleeve is very nice, and the press release is so polite I almost feel guilty for disliking it. But hearing this record again strengthens my resolve to tell like it is (as only I can). This record does not get the juices flowing, it doesn’t bring a lump to the throat, or a tear to the eye or even hold my attention any longer than for three songs. Their press release says, “Family Plot does not sound like any other rock band you have heard”. Right, it’s boring in its own unique way.

Jazz women come alive

by Mike

Imprint

Shirrif staff

Instead of going to the Razorbacks on Saturday night I decided to see Sandra Reaves-Phillips at the Humanities Theatre. For some reason I think I made the right choice. Doing what amounts to, basically, a tribute to some of the greatest blues and jazz women of our times. Decked out in the costume of whatever period she happened to be doing, ReavesPhillips did more than just dress the part. She made each character come alive. You were no longer watching Sandra ReavesPhillips on stage, but Ma Rainey or Bessie Smith or Mahalia Jack-

Reaves-Phillips

pays

son. With each character came a different perspective on life, love [usually of the sexual kind), and music, Combining her absolutely amazing and versatile voice with her background in drama, R-P took the partially comatose audience into the lives of each character. As Ethel Wgters singing Shake That Thing the crowd finally showed that they were in fact alive, only to be brought into Waters troubled life with His Eye Is on the Sparrow.

Personally, the best of R-Ps renditions came as a gravel throated, drugged-out-of-her-gourd, Billie Holiday playing Carnegie Hall - even down to snortin‘coke (but not really, see it was just a show) and introducing her

tribute

to jazz personalities.

backup band: Mr Sophisticated Gent, we call him lucky lips on trumpet Bill Dillard, Dimples Prez Junior playing reeds Ed Pazant, George Bragg on the Greasy Skins, Mr. Cool Personified on bass Paul Ramsay and finally The Destroyer of all Ivory George the Butcher. Only when R-P came out as Mahalia Jackson did the crowd finally get off their asses and prove that they yere actually part of the world of the living. I do have a suggestion for the guys who run the show: remove afl the seats so that people can move around, nothing ruins a great show like being forced to sit. After all we’re not on the Greyhound going to Thunder Bay, we’re at blues show.

It’s here! It’s here! Yuk Y&s, the world’s largest comedy chain has opened its 13th Komedy Kabaret, this one in downtown Kitchenw. Just around the corner from Dr. Disc at 10 Young Street, a gateway unfolds and stairs slip underground into a hotbed of the world’s greatest comics. Last weekends’sold out shows featured the king and owner of Yuk Yuk’s himself, Mark Breslin. Acting as MC for the even= ing, Breslin warmed the crowd like a pee pee.’ The characteristics of crowd members and the orally sexual habits of the Royal Family were all topics set alight to bask in the spontaneous laughter exhausted from happy patrons. Anyone that has been to a Yuk Yuk’s before will know their high standards of food, drink, and comedians. Anybody that has never been to one, probably doesn’t have any sexual organs. Basically a black basement with a small stage, Yuk’s isn’t trying to entice you from your TV with it’s elegance. These clubs want you to let go, relax, laugh at yourself and others - at the follies of the day, politics, and social behaviour of all sorts. Comedians Larry Horowitz and Jeremy Hotz were also part

Sometimes, Cleve comes across as a law-enforcing Santa Claus: “He seemed terriblv worldweary, yet his eyes” twinkled with life.” Among the colourful variety of bad guys - complete with scars, canes and giveaway rings - the reader can easily narrow down responsibility for various heinous crimes to about two or three people. The ending, therefore, in revealing who actually did what contains no real surprises. This is samewhit disappointing. However, Konkel’s novel is strong on “mystery value” by building on questions of howdunnit rather than whodunnit. The Glorious East Wind is a complex novel. Throughout the first two-thirds of his narrative, Konkel constantly introduces new mysteries, crimes and characters; the layered depth of the police bureaucracy and drug

Paradirre By Ddnald Barthelme Penguin Books 208 pages, $8.95 by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff Yeah, it must be admitted that living with three gorgeous, nubile, open-minded (pause for reviewer to regain breath and abate a potentially . endless string of NOW Magazine personal-ads-adjectives) lingerie models has the makings of a dream come true for your average functional male. Such is the premise of Donald Barthelme’s (Snow White, Sixty Stories, etc.) ‘latest novel to make the paperback shelves. In Paradise, 5% year-old architect Simon taking ,a year’s vacation from the rigours of career-advancement and family-raising and getting .-Anne, Veronica, and Dore to share the rent of one of those up‘town New York apartments. But if you’re hankering for some good old risque titillation a la Harold Robbins or Danielle Steele, look elsewhere. Barthelme invites us to crave lurid, steamy scenes, and then gives us passages that make a Christian ‘sex manual look like Penthouse Forum, so bland and concrete are \ the sex scenes. In fact, Paradise is a sort of burlesque of everyday dialogue and, as Barthelme’s readers may expect, endlessly parodic, There are sendups of conversations in everything from soap operas to neo-realist novels, showing not only the contrivance of most literary dialogue which puts Socratic profundity in the mouths , of every character, but alsti the \, artifice inherent even in socaMed realism. Witticisms such as when one -of the girls

The appeal of Prradiaa lies entirely in Barthelme’s mastery of an enga ing, but wholly unique style. I f it’s the pleasure of the text you want, Paradise rates an orgasm.

syndicates involved is amazing. “Many many threads. Almost too many for the reader to keep straight in the head at one time (and all those Chinese names!) Conclusion of novel successfully - somewhat unexpectedly weaves these threads all together. However, “mystery value” of this novel lies in the, layers of corruption it weaves, incredible knowledge of depths of crime/potentiality in Hong Kong. Weaving of past and present, background tensions of Hong Kong, awaiting hand-over to Britain, confusion associated with that, layers and powers of influence inherent in this system, how complicated it can all get. Brutality. Potential for justice in a system of policing which is under the thumb of politics and those with power and business interests. Konkel exhibits a wide knowledge of Hong Kong, police hierarchy, drug trade, crime Konkel was a member of Rpyal Hong Kong police and is now an officer with Metropolitan Toronto Police, considered one of North America’s leading authorities on Chinese organized crime. Konkel also knows much about Hong Kong life in general, generous with small details about Hong Kong life. Credible, believable plot line: realistic.

Quickly greeted in the dark recesses of the Rivoli by WEA reps <offering food, drink, and press packs, I and others of similar purity consumed our bread and . wine patiently. The temperment of the Floodland project wafted through the room, resounded from walls, and settled only to be swept up by the next track, enveloping everything in a fog of soot’ and sound. Spiral dances continued for a time orphaned from the outside world and regu_ lated by the pulse of the songs alone. An attention call was given, and the Sisters of Mercy wandered into the room. The building shuddered as the walls separated and we drifted off to sea. Captain Eldritch, soul-mate Morrison, and the ship of fools embarked on an exploratory mission of enlightenment. Now then, through the crowd - forward, sidestep left, jig , right+ flutter forward, left. again, and .a flying leap past the, bar. .

Andrew Eldritch: 1 . try to’ eneek a bit in - it’s a very unpopular way to do things these days. 1: What other sorts of writing do you do? AR Ah, &. 1 don’t trust myself in prose at all. I’m totally incapable of conversation or prose or even blank verse+ Totally. I: You must not like interviews very much? AE: No, not at ail.. could be worse - you could all be sitting in rows - I could be up there with a spotlight. l

I: What do you think of Toronto? AE: It’s damn cold. It’s really tough because we were in the middle east last week - we were very sunburnt, and then California yesterday and to bit this last night was a real shock to the metabolism. I: Dante wrote that Hell was ice. Is this hell to you? AE: Yeah! With just your head showing above the waterline! I know how he feels. I: Are we ever going io see any Peel Sessions or obscure recordings . . . AE: Uh, they’re pretty embarrassing. I: I’m thinking of your cover of lolene, that Dolly Parton song!. AE: Yeah that was really sort of half-way embarrassing. I’m yery fond of that song. We’re putting out Emma next week on the bside of the next Eyropean single (Dominion). That’s thu laet of those sort of things to come through the pipeline. I: What’s behind Emma? AE: 1 just adore give me back my n-tan songs. Uh, while we were doing the ABBA numbers . . . and JoIene. We just worked our way onto Hot Chocolate for no partieular reason. It’s just a great song, and the original . . . it sounds so bad.

AE: No, this is news to me. I’ve heard that question . . . it’s probably a bootleg. There’s a Japanese legitimate version which we had to withdraw which had some wry strange lyrics printed on it which somebody had made UPi:Fe3+otlegs . . . you generally don’t . );E: I can’t afford them.

But I did get the impression that there’8 not much to get a grip on. I mean it sounds very good . . . uh, like you’d expect-they’re very cornpetent. It’s just there doesn’t ever seem to be anything behind it. I: Substance? AE: Yeah, I get that impression. It seems to lack authority.

The poster, the lyric sheet, the new singles’ got limited edition. AE: Yeah, that’s largely a question of how .the English charts work. I like a lot of people to listen to the stuff I do; I’d like to get it played on radio-the radio will only play it in England if it’s ialready sold a lot, and to sell a lot you have to cheat the housewives some. I don’t mitid doing that if it means that ! don’t have marketing men come into the studio whiie I’m making the record. I: How is your label treating youI hear you‘re supposed to get a big push in the States. Is this going to happen. AE: No, I mean the Amdcans only just decided to put the rem cord out. They told me at Christmas-if we weren‘t going to tour, they weren‘t going to put it out. 1 said okay, but they seem to have, come to another conclusion. I‘m noticing very little sympathy from the American record company, everywhere else we don‘t have so much of a problem there. I: The artwork on the new projects are photographs as opposed to the Gustave Dore prints and things like that . AE: Yeah, we ran out of primary colours!

A Funny Thing Happened by James Hea imprint staff When I walked down the stairs of the Theatre of the Arts to my seat, I was immediately swept into pre-Christian Rome. The magnificent set was both elaborate and functional. The orchestra, dressed in multi-coloured togas like those of the cast, began to play, signalling A ’ Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum was about to commence. The initial scene promised fun, wit and humour to . the audience. We were not denied, rather we received much more from the play than was pledged.

An

The plot focuses on a slave, Pseudolus, and his master’s son, Hero. Hero has fallen in love with a girl from next door, and innocent premise except that his neighbour is a seller of flesh (and not a butcher). Pseudolus proposes to unite Hero with this goddess for the granting of his freedom if he is successful, After convincing Lycus, the flesh merchant,that he wants to see his’ wares, Pseudolus manages to isolate the girl. Hero and Philia fall in love: unfortunately, she has been promised to another man, Captain Miles .Gloriosus Pseudolus inquires about her origin and Lycus proudly states .. that she is a virgin fr.om Crete, making her price very expensive, well beyond the means of Hero. Pseudolus promptly informs Lj~us’ that there is a _ plague on Crete. Lycus states that he is robust and happy and

therefore couldn’t possibly have the plague. Pseudolus’ plan seems to be foiled but using his wit and the gullibility of Lycus, he confidently explains that happiness and laughter are the terminal symptoms of the plague. Lycus is-persuaded to let Pseudolus try to treat the girl, as the Captain is expected soon. The girl is conveniently isolated in Hero’s house for treatment. While arranging transport to skip town, Hero and Pseudolus have to explain to Senex, Hero’s father, who has just returned from the country, that the have a new maid. Senex sees Philia as a prime candidate for his affections. Senex’s witch-like wife is still in the country visiting her mother. As Act I closes, Captain Miles Gloriosus arrives and demands his bride. eseudolus has assumed Lycus’ role as flesh merchant in order to stall the strong and well-equipped Miles Gloriosus. Act II opens with the the retux+n of Domina, Senex’s wife; she suspects the dirty old man of cheating on her and disguises herself .as a young woman to catch him in* the act. .With his freedom. oh the line, Pseudolus determines that the only way to unite Hero and Philia is to fake her death to fool the Captain. After creating a deep sleep potion, he finds out that she will not drink it due to its alcohol content - it is against her religion to drink. The only apparent solution to this dilemma is to dress up the mas#er’s head slave and eunuch as a girl and try to pass him off as Philia. The other neighbour, Erronius, has returned after his unsuccessful trip to find his children. They were stolen by pirates 20 years

ago, The Captain is intormed by Lycus (Pseudolus) that his bride is dead and is shown the body. He is full of grief and demands a funeral pyre to finalize the mat. ter and to obtain the ashes for a constant reminder of her. Hysterium, the eunuch, is not willing to be sacrificed and promptly

runs off stage. Miles sends his men to capture her. Meanwhile, the disguised Domina is found by Senex, who mistakenly thinks that she is the maid. Domina is satisfied that Senex is not a dirty old man and that he is only interested in her. The entire cast is reunited on stage after the capture of Hysterium. After the Capthin is told of the plot to fool him, he prepares to kill Pseudolus. Just before Pseudolus, is about to be slain, Erronius notes that both Philia and Miles have rings on their fingers which identify them as his lost children. Hero has Philia, Pseudolus has his freedom, Erronius has found his lost children and everybody lives happily ever after. The cast, orchestra and crew did. an exceptional job. The audience left happy and -wellentertained. In this UW Drama Department production, it is difficult to isolate anybody from the many special performances. But Pseudolus, Steven (3. Kuleshnyk, was well matched to the task of carrying the play from -start to finish. His talent, wit and dedication was typical of all the performers. In the future, I hope more students willtake the opportunity to see their Drama Department perform as it is an inexpensive way to‘gain an appreciation for the theatre.

The booze is making you dizzy, and your head swims. There’s laughing, carousing, all that. You know. Juzo Itami’s Tampopo, billed as “the first Japanese noodle Western”, is such a meal: rollicking, larger than life and, in many places, surreal.

The people have spoken. Or at least a few of them have dragged themselves away from their TVs. We’ll admit there were a few flaws, but we genuinely wanted to identify the understated things that make Waterloo a livable place. If you don’t think that’s possible, just toddle out the door and go discover the world around you.

R SPORgTS ‘It was a thriller

Warriors by Peter Dedes Imprint staff A strong University of Toronto Varsity Blues volleyball team visited the Physical Activities Complex here in Waterloo to contest the Warriors for the UUAA volleyball crown. At stake was a berth in the CIAU championships to be held this weekend in Guelph. This was going to be no easy romp in the clover for Waterloo as the Blues had defeated. the Warrior Vbailers in all five previous clinches. An emotional performance by the Warriors before a boisterous home crowd took the all-star studded U of T team to the fifth game. The talented Blues team showed the icy poise of a champion in game five to pull away for the victory, 3-2. Toronto squealed away from the starting line to reel off 10 points before Waterloo could unlimber itself. UW finally put it’s sparkling defensive game together to close the gap, 12-7. But a five-point spread was as intimate as it would get and the comeback dream faded as the Varsity Blues would close out game one, 15-10. Game two saw a wired Warrior defence dominate the crosscourt hitting game of U of T. Waterloo caught the flat-footed Blues loitering and surprised them with a quit k s-zip lead. The U of T giant stirred to respond with three big points andprompted Warrior coach Rob Atkinson to call an important time out. His charges would respond with a renewed defensive attitude and four more points before the Blues would score again, With the

The CIAU Indoor Track and Field Championships saw the closing of one chapter in Waterloo sports history and, perhaps, the opening of another. The meet was held last weekend, March 11 and 12, in Winnipeg. One of UW’s all-time sporting greats, Harvey Mitro, ran his last race as a Warrior. Mitro, who in past years collected two CIAU silver medals and two bronze, was looking for a gold to cap his career. It was not to be, however. A serious illness had kept Mitro from more than two weeks of training immediately prior to the OUAA championships, sapping him of his strength and conditioning, In second place with a lap to go in last Friday’s 1500m, Mitro realized his kick was not there.

The women’s basketball season ended with both Conrad Grebel and the Pink Flamingoes finishing undefeated. Conrad Grebel placed first with the better net difference, and both receive a bye in the first round of the playoffs. Three teams tied for second place, and finished in the order of St. Paul’s Knockers, in third, Kinners, in fourth, and last term’s champions, the Basketcases, in fifth. Renison, on the other hand, finished the season last without earning a single victory. The playoffs began March 7, and all teams made the playoffs in an A-B Division split. In A Division Playoffs, the Kinners defeated the Basketcases 18-13, and ST. Paul’s Knockers defeated Renison 28-10, while the Savages routed Notre Dame 3% 13.

settling into his new office along the PAC corridor. With the hordes of high school students visiting the campus these days, Knight is busy recruiting talent for his rebuilding project. A trip to his office now finds several burly candidates waiting to talk to Waterloo’s new skipper. The term “rebuilding project” doesn’t begin to explain the task which lies.abead for Knight. The Warriors last won a game on October 12, 1984. For trivia buffs, that’s the weekend the Detroit Tigers won the World Series [remember?]. Some Waterloo football fans have grown from frosh to grads and never witnessed b vie tory. Three years worth of frustration burst in October, 1987. The players, distraught and disillusioned as their record fell to 0-5, banded together and forced the firing of then head coach Bob McKillop. Waterloo fi’nished with an O-7 record for the third straight season, and after the dust settled, a review committee pondered the fate of the program. By Christmas it was all systems go; and on February 9, 1988, the trumpets sounded as Knight returned to his old stompin’ grounds, Waterloo.

But why would a man with a lucrative job as personnel director of the Torbnto Argonauts want to come to Waterloo, a move comparable to trading in a ‘88 Cadillac for a ‘73 Dart? But Knight admits he has no reservations about coaching here after last fall’s uprising. As far as he’s concerned, that was then, this is now. “I’ve heard different versiohs of the story, but I’m not too interested in what has happened in the past - there haven’t been a lot of positive things happen here in the past. To me, the slate is wiped clean.” He applies the same approach to the players who participated in the notorious October Revolution. But he is making it known who’s in charge. MONDAY,

MARCH

“Again, I look at it as a clean slate. Some players won’t be pleased with my coaching methods. But if they’re not, I can suggest 21 other schools where they can transfer to. There’s two wais of doing things - my way and the wrong way. If they don’t like it, they should think about transferring, and I’d be glad to help them transfer.‘*

“There’s hills and valleys at all universities, this place is no different from Laurier, McMaster, or the rest of them There are always hurdles to overcome, it’s just different here from other schools. If you really want to play football, you’ll overcome them. If it’s a good program, the players wifl stay.”

My way and the wrong way

Recruiting a&de, let’s look ahead to September. Are the days of fumbles, interceptions, blocked kicks, and Is-yard infractions over? Well, Knight has set lofty goals and admits he might not attain them.

Knight the talent

admits he can’t assess left over from last sea-

son. “I’ve had a dhance to look at it a ,little bit, but it’s tough to evaluate the personnel we have now, we’ve only done some agility drills. But we do need some size.” But he emphasizes the importance of recruiting to his restoration project. “It’s a non-ending thing, we have to recruit every year. I’d like to get 20 to 25 blue-chip athletes who are good academically and good ball players in here every year. It’s going to take some time, there’s not a lot of depth here right now.” All you have to do is look at Knight’s day planner to realize how his reputation has genevated interest in the program. Nine recruits visited 6n Tuesday, 10 on Wednesday, seven on Thursday while more ’ were slated for Friday. Knight hints that he may see 50 prospective Warriors by the end of the month. Does his reputation have anything to do with this? Knight won’t say. “I don’t know, it (his record) doesn’t impress me. I don’t know if it impresses anybody else.” Knight doesn’t believe that Waterloo’s co-op system and stringent academic demands should affect the success of his program.

“To say we’re going have a 7-0 record, win the_ OUAA and go on and win the College Bowl is ridiculous - but I’m planning on doing it. I believe that if you don’t shoot for that, you won’t get it. I’ve been around long enough to realize that if you say you’re going to go 2-5, you will. I thought my last year at Laurier was going to be g real struggle, but we finished first and got beat in the playoffs. It’s so hard to predict .” Knight vows he can return respectability to Waterloo football in his first season at the helm.

“I can bring respectability” 4

“I can bring respectability here this season. But for you, respectability may mean going 5-2, Respectability to me is that we’ll be competitive. We’re going to be a very competitive and entertaining football team. My personnel will dictate what type of game we’re going toglay, but we will be aggressive. I know right how that we will be a team that will attack you.” After almost four years of humiliation and a bagel in the win column, one win would be respectability for most Waterloo football fans.
