Third US fraternity eyes .UW
Fee limit gets students in the end by John Mason Imprint staff
by John Mason Imprint staff The Triangle Fraternity, based in South Bend, Indiana, is coming to Waterloo, Next month, representatives from the US, will be on campus introducing them- I selves to the student community in an attempt to establish their first Canadian chapter. The fraternaty caters exclusively to students in Engineering, Science, Architecture, Math and Computer Science. One of the main concepts of the organization is the mutual assistance of members in their technical courses, They like to study and socialize together. Their interest in UW was spurred by the high calibre of Engineering and Computer Science programs here, as well as by the large number of undergraduates this campus hosts. Representatives+ from the fraternal organizations already at UW, have come out in support of the Triangle entering UW. Sigma Chi and Phi Delta Theta recognize the differences between themselves and the new Creek group but feel they can work well together.

Co-op students will face an increase in their Co-op fees of $19.00 per term following decisions finalized at the Senate meeting on Monday, May 16. The increase, which will see’ fees raised from $250.00 to $269.00 per term, is less than the increase of $70.00 originally proposed by the university administration. -.The university had argued the increase in Co-op fees was necessary to cover the additional costs of,marking work term reports and faculty administration time. The Senate approved cuts of $420,000.00 in order to balance the budget under the new Co-op fee structure. Areas targeted for increases in the preliminary budget were the first slashed, These included benefit costs f\or part-time staff, utilities, the Academic Development Fund, teaching equipment, library acquisitions, student services and changes to the Centre for the Arts. While recognizing the necessity of a balanced budget, Shane Carmichael’ Federation of Students Vice-President (Operations and Finance], is concerned about the cut to student services, In an earlier decision, the Professional Arts Series (P.A.S.) was axed, which represented a cut of $200,000.00 in the Student Services budget. $150,000,00 from slashing the P.A.S. was to be turned into new funding and programs for student services. “Now, not only is P.A.S. gone,” Carmichael said, “but part of the promised additional funding has also been slashed.” He feels UW students don’t deserve this treatment, Student representatives at the Senate tried to extract a promise, from Robin Banks, (Acting) UW Vice-President (Academic and Provost), that the cuts would be reinstated in next year’s budget but no such pledge was forthcoming. Banks also informed the Senate of another development concerning Co-op fees and the additional expense of marking work term reports, He said the Ontario government has decided the expenses incurred in grading work term reports constitutes apart of academic activity and therefore must be charged as an increase in tuition and not as an additional fee to the students. This introduces the possibility of regular students facing tuition increases if an across the board hike should be made to cover the additional expenses. Such a move Banks stated, would go against the university’s policy of making fees representational. “It is vital that Co-op students pick-up the cost of any additional Co-opsxpenses,” the acting provost said.
Park campers beware Alcohol has been banned in 26 provincial parks, including 11 in southwestern Ontario, from May 13 to May 23 by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The ban covers all the government campsites in the southwest portion of the province. “We decided to apply an alcohol ban to all our parks in southwestern Ontario, not just a few, to prevent those campers who might cause a problem from moving up the road to the next provincial park that didn’t have a ban,” said John Coopl er of the
Ministry of Natural Resources. Alcohol bans utilized in selected parks in previous years have proved successful in reducing rowdyism and the public generally has supported the measures. By broa&ning the ban, the government hopes to guarantee all park visitors quiet, peaceful campsites. Any prospective campers, you have been warned! Take heart, the ban lasts only 11 days and full privileges will be restored for the remainder of the camping season.

The lecture by Dewan was just one event in the I/S Orientation, giving an example of what comes out of the programme. The I/S programme at Waterloo is unique in that it is the only programme in Canada based on self-directed learning. The programme is run primarily by students and academic advisors with continued involvement and

He undertook a full load of courses, making only minimal use of some of the programme’s special features. With respect to the working world, Dewan cited two important aspects of Independent Studies that have proven useful: the ability to learn independently and the ability to synthesize information.

Brew pub for Waterloo dubious by John Mason Imprint staff
The future of a brew pub offered to UW, by a Canadian businessman from the American Virgin Islands, has been stalled. Thgunnamed individual was requesting a tax receipt from WATFUND in return for the equipment and proposed the costs of transporting the appara:;; pefsanada be shouldered by The Federation of Students a tax receipt could be if the equipment would be delivered to Waterloo at no additional expense to themselves. “We would be willing to send engineers to dismantle the brewery if the $~O,OO~.OO necessary for transportation would not fall on us,” said Shane Carmichael, vice-president (operations and finance). “The situation is up in the air. A second group has also made a proposal and right now we are waiting on a decision,” he said. Carmicheal is definitely interested and excited by the poseibilities of a UW brew pub but is also well aware of the many difficulties and problems involved+ There are distinct problems with location, operation and marketing for local brew pubs but the uniqueness of a UW beer, Carmichael feels, would give students a pride and challenge which would be hard to match.
Until reaction is received from businessman, Federation of Students will be patient and offer no illusions on UW chances, The Needles Hall official investigating the proposal was not available for comment I

predicts government spending to weaken. New taxation policy aims at increasing revenue rather than stimulating employment, The real goirernment expenditure is expected to be only marginally higher than 1987 levels. Bank of Canada control of money supply is likely to remain tight in a continued effort to allow interest rates to rise relative to U.S. levels as an anti-inflationary device. WAT.FORE expects the prime lending rate to average 9.37 per cent for the year. American interest rates play a very important role in the WAT*FORE predictions and therefore introduce a potential source of error. As the U.S. continues to struggle with its devastating trade deficits and fluctuating exchange rates for the dollar, interest rates policy could change drastically. Recognizing the uncertainty of global economics, the forecast is labeled a8 “the most optimistic scenario possible and most of the risk is now on the down side.”

4 Imprint, Friday, May 20, 1988
*Make UW safe On August 19,1986, a letter was mailed to UW’s Director of Safety Mr. N. Ozaruk. The letter addressed students’ concerns regarding poor lighting on campus. Then Federation women’s commissioner D.A. Evans as well as a former member of the President’sAdvisary Committee on Traffic and parking submitted the written warning of what was to come: a campus which is risky to venture out on at nigh). The Federation of Students’letter stated “We feel that it is our duty to point out this problem to the administration. They should be aware of the possibility of liability due to accidents which may be a result of lack of lighting.” Back in 1986, the Federation served notice that “especially women, have expressed heightened fear while walking in darkened areas on campus...” A carbon copy of the letter was sent to the Security Department. Prior to the appointment of Al MacKenzie as Director of Security last summer, #the Campus cops kept a very tight lid on statistics of assaults happening on campus let alone descriptive accounts of what happened. Public awareness on campus was at a standstill. On April 7, 1988, a female villager was assaulted on the village sidewalk known as the “bible path.” She was walking alone after midnight; her assailant was chased away by three male students who happened along the scene. Almost one month later on May 5, one man is thought to have harassed two separate women in what can only be described as “just short of assault”, but nevertheless, sexual harassment: a man touched a woman’s breast then fled, and allegedly, then confronted another woman inside the women’s washroom of a different campus building just ten minutes later. The most recent report coming out of security is that two male university students were assaulted last Friday, The two first year students were assaulted with punches and kicks neara well lighted part of Columbia road. At least 15 cars drove by the incident and chose to ignore the unsolicited beating these two youths received. Becauseof the commendable decision by the se&ity department to report threatening assaults which effect all of us, fiat&loo students may be surprised at the number of assaults which may potentially take up the headlines. Director of Security Al MacKenzie is not surprised. Incidents like the May 5 sexual harassment are not that infrequent, Mackenzie said. Many of you may not have realized it, but at UW we have a very competent security department. They are all former police officers with at least five years experience, or have been educated in the field of security. They conduct foot patrols through the campus and in cars around Ring Road. There are about sixteen officer6 on board at the moment and that number will rise to about eighteen eventually. There is one female security officer. They are located just West of the smoke stack behind the MC building and may be reached at extension 3211 : The question that begs to be asked is Where does the solution lie in making UW safer? Notice has been served to the adniinistration two years ago. But lighting is not the only problem. The events reported in the last two iSsues of Imprint were made public simply because of a change in heart at the security department level. The problem did not just begin; it has been with us locked up in the administration’s filing cabinets. This latest event demonstrates that more than good lighting is needed to steer this campus from its conducive-to-assault state. At other universities there are emergency telephones and student bike patrols. The Federation of Students should press the university harder than ever for similar programs to be implemented at UW. If nothing is done, the liability for all assaults, some more severe than others, lies with the people who run this campus: the Board of Governors and the Senate.
UW assault victim I used to think this was impossible and could never happen to me. Something happened the other night to change my mind. A friend and I were walking along Columbia Street when three drunk guys stopped us. One grabbed my friend’s shirt and for no reason, were basically drunk and unched him. The Po6king for a fight. !I here was to-be no reasoning with them. So we ran. My friend escaped, I slipped and fell, and they beat me. I’m now sitting here writing this with aches, pains, deep muscle & bone bruises, an’d a cracked jaw. I was kicked. I was punched; my shirt and jacket were ripped off my back. I don’t know why??? It’s a scary thought when you consider where this occurred.
-on the sidewalk beside Columbia street, right beside the curb -early evening [before ten) -in plain view of passing motorists. The last point particularly bothers me. I was able to escape partially, and I tried to flag down cars. I was waving wildly, yelling for help, my shirt and jacket were ripped, and these three guys were trying to drag me back, all the while hitting me. Fifteen or twenty cars passed by, no one ever stopped. Unprovoked violence scares me, indifferent passersby scares me even more. I was obviously wanting help; I was obviously in trouble, yet not one car stopped. What did you think??? “It’s none of my business, ” “Oh, he’ll be alright.” I really wonder. Name withheld by Imprint
What’s new in the SAC? . Lots! Co-op SAC, the Student Advisory Council to Co-operative Education and Career Services’ is the forum for student feedback to Needles Hall. Previous feedback has led to a couple of great new ideas. There is now a new way to check up on an employer before you apply for an interview or rank them. It’s called the Student Workterm Summary. All Co-op students fill out a summary, form during their re! turn-to-cam.pus interviews. These forms are then filed and left in: a binder in the Career Resource Centre, which is on the
first floor of Needles Hall. Now, when you go through interviews, you can look in the binder and see what the last s+ dent thought of the job you’re applying for. It’s a great way to reduce the risk of getting a job you don’t like. There is also a new Co-op handbook coming out soon. It contains everything you need-to know about interviews, work reports, Co-op regulations etc. The first issue will be handed out to the frosh in September. Upper year students can buy it at the bookstore in the fall,
If you have a Co-op question, problem or idea, just contact one of your faculty SAC reps. Their pictures are posted at Needles Hall near the receptionist. If you don’t recognize any of them, your student society should be able to track them down for you. If not, come to a SAC meeting. They are held d every two weeks, The next meeting is Tuesday, May 24 at 4:30 in NH 1029. Did You Know: If you take a ninth school term you don’t have to pay Co-op fees for that term, as your total fees are divided over the first eight terms. SAC

The Department of National Defence’s decision to purchase lo-12 nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSNs] is a bad decision for Canadian security. The following is a short outline of the reasons Project Ploughshares is not in favour of the SSN decision. National Defence support of the SSN decision is contained in two separate arguments: 1) SSNs would improve NATO‘s ability to defend against a Soviet attack (and thus improve its ability to deter that attack). 2) Canadian SSNs will help to defend Canadian arctic sovereignty from foreign submarines. With regards to the first argument, there is no reason to believe that the Soviet Union has any intention of going to war against us. But let’s assume for the moment that there is a need for a stronger defence to deter a Soviet attack. The argument that Canada should buy SSN’s is still weak. Like any other defence decision, SSN’s have an “op ortunity cost” - given a limited defence budget, spending $8-14 rl illion on ‘SSN’s means foregoing other defence programs, Would SSN’s: constitute the best use of Canada’s defence dollar? Our NATO allies can’t understand why Canada would buy SSN’s. NATO already has an almost overwhelming military superiority at sea - if there is any shortfall in NATO’s naval forces, according to NATO analysts, it is in frigates, not SW’s, If there is any shortfall in NATO’s military forces in general, it is in ground forces. Spending our defence budget on SSN’s would prevent defence spending in areas where NATO thinks it’s really needed in effect, undermining Canada’s defences. With regards to the Department of National Defence’s second argument, what is at stake in the arctic is not Canada’s sovereignty as a whole, but only whether foreign vessels have the right to transit the Northwest Passage. At present, this challenge comes from the U.S. Navy; there is no evidence that Soviet subs have ever passed through the Canadian arctic. , According to National Defence, the very presence of Canadian SSN’s would deter U.S. submarines from transitting the Passage (it has admitted that we would not use force). However, the legal principles under which the US. asserts the right to transit the passage are the same principles under which it asserts the right to (and does] transit Soviet territorial waters. And if the presence of the Soviet Navy doesn’t stop the U.S.‘Navy’s transits, neither would the presence of Canadian SSN’s. The real way to protect Canada’s arctic sovereignty is on the diplomatic level, by making it clear to the United States and other nations that good relations with Canada are dependent on their good behaviour in the Canadian Arctic. Canadian SSN’s would contribute to the continuation of the global naval arms race and to the further militarization of the Arctic. One role of the SSN’s would be to track [and, in wartime, destroy) Soviet nuclear missile submarines, ai part of the larger US, strategy for “fighting” a nuclear war. This strategy carries a major risk of starting a nuclear war. Canada’s purchase would set a bad precedent. SSN’s put the ingredients for nuclear bombs into the hands of their military operators with virtually no safeguards against misuse. Canada would never divert this material to build bombs, but other countries might. Countries that are considering SSN purchasessuch as Argentina, Brazil and Pakistan [all of which have n+uclear bomb development programs), would be able to point to Canada’s SSN purchase as a precedent for their own‘acquisition ofSSN’s. Thus, Canada’s purchase might help to open up an additional path for the spread of nuclear weapons. SSN’s would carry the risk of a radiation disaster in a Canadian port or in Canadian waters. According to one Btudy, a serious naval reactor accident in Esquimalt, British Columbia, could cause up to hundreds of deaths and long-term contamination of a large part of Esquimalt and neighbouring Victoria. Such an accident is unlikely, but it is not impossible. A”terrorist” attack is one possibility that National Defence seems to have to have ignored. An SSN would be far more vulnerable to such an attack than, for example, a civilian nuclear reactor, which is surrounded by a massive concrete containment building. If a SSN became the target .for such an attack, a serious disaster could result. Finally, there are the non-military “opportunity costs” of the SSN purchase. There are many threats to Canadian security besides the possibility of a delibeyate Soviet attack. The enormous amount of money to be spent cn the SSN’s would take away funds that could have been spent on efforts to end the arma race, or to protect the global environment’ or otherwise to reduce imminent threats facing the security and well-being of Canadians. Canada has no military need for SSN’s, By contrast, there are ‘several convincing reasons for not acquiring them. The Department of &tional Defence should look out for the real security interests of Canadians. These interests lie in an end to the global arms race and the reservation of the global commons, not in nuclear-powered su& marines.

Revenue from advertisements in the handbook is expected to reach ‘$50 000, up 25% from last year And almost 100% from two years ago. In the calendar section, the date boxes will be replaced by columns, so that a full week is displayed per page spread. This layout should be easier to use and won’t cut down on the advertising _revenue, Lipton said. The new format will feature the hours of the day screened over each day of the week which will enable students to pencil in their daily appointments according to an hourly structure.

Protect you r bike. by George Dennie Imprint staff With the advent of summer, which always brings bicycles out by the hundreds, students now have to think about hoiv to avoid another creature of summer:‘bike thieves. A favorite place of thieves is around the Math and Computer building and the Campus Centre, as so many people leave their bikes there, said Brian Bradley of Campus Security. But with the range of bicycle locks available, it may be hard to decide which kind to buy. Kryptonite-style locks (those which have a U-shaped bar of plasticized metal with a removable metal crossbar that locks to the U] are by far the best, Bradley said. A good one costs between $30 and $45. Many of these locks also come with theft insurance, but you should check the insurance

It your bike is stolen, don’t despair, Bradley said, as the majority of stolen bikes are abandoned after a week or so and are picked up by the authorities when owners of the property complain. If you have the serial number, your driver’s license number en-. graved on the frame, or an accurate description of your bicycle, you may be able to claim it at Campus Security or Waterloo’s police station. Currently, Campus Security will hold a bike for ten months before sending it off to an outlet store, Bradley said.

agreement to see if it is full of loopholes, making it difficult to claim, before you pay extra for it. If you don’t want to spend very much, a less expensive lock style is a heavy chain and padlock combination. These locks are not nearly as good as the Kryptonite versions, but they do deter casual theft. According to Security’s crime prevention officer, locks on which the locking device is a part of the chain offer the least protection. A lock serves little purpose if it is not used to deter theft, Whenever possible, Bradley advised to attach a bicycle to an immovable object such as a bike rack or lightpost. You should position your lock SQ it is hooked to the frame since it is usually the most expensive part of a bicycle to replace. The rear wheel is normally less costly, and the front wheel the least expensive, which you should consider when locking up . your bike.

by Derik Hawley Imprint staff After nearly eight years, the Red Army will finally be pulling out of Afghanistan. The war which has caused more than one million deaths will remain for generations in the minds of the Afghan people. Afghanistan is a relatively small country in the mountainous desert region of central Asia. The country has been invaded, although never totally conquered, by Alexander the Great, Gengis Khan and a failed attempt by the British in the nineteenth century led to a prolonged war over the Kyber pass. Why then would the Soviets want to get themselves into a lengthy war against such a determined foe? Prior to 3978, Islamic Law was both the custom and legal practice in Afghanistan. In 1978 the Communist People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan overthrew the government and placed Nur Mohamed Taraki in the government as president. For the Soviets it was a victory for the causes of Marxism. The army coup was now caled a revolution. The new government tried some daring modernization programs; land redistribution+ literacy campaigns and most importantly some cultural modernizations of the traditional Islamic law. Then opposition rose from several factions. The wealthy land- owners saw their possessions threatened, The tribal chiefs saw their power weakened. And the fundamentalist Muslims saw a threat to their way of life. The end of the Taraki regime came from inside rather than out, In another coup Prime Minister Hafizulah Amin took power; Taraki was killed in the fighting. Under Amin the revolution took on a darker form, The reform movement became synonymous with torture and executions. The Soviet Union, feeling their revolution threatened, decided to do something. On a quiet winter morning, Dec.27, 1979, Soviet forces were airlifted into Kabul, the capital city. American witnesses reported Soviet airborne troops faacdeattacked the presidential paWithin a matter of weeks almost 50,000 troops were deployed throughout Afghanistan, garrisoned in the provincial capitals. Meanwhile the radio announced that Babrak Kamal was the new President and had in-
vited the Soviets to help stabilize his government. After several years, Kamal was ousted and secret police chief Najibulah became president.
A Soviet Vietnam? News stories and popular impressions have labelled Afghanistan the Russian version of Vietnam. The metaphor is partially, though by no means completely, accurate. On a political level the conflict was much different. There was no Viet Cong or North Vietnamese army. The opposition to the Marxist governments was in the form of several, relatively small bands of rebels. These fsrces have yet to show a solid, united front. The ideological situation was also different. In South Vietnam there was a Capitalist regime in the south and a Communist one in the north. Both ideologies were relatively new in the countr.y. The war had also been going on on longer before other countries were involved. The war in Vietnam was around 20 year9 old when the American forces arrived. In Afghanistan, a new ideology was implemented, supported by a superpower trying to survive against the opposition of a tradition which went back more thgn a millennium. From a tactical point of view the conflict was very similar. A massive military machine (over lOO,$lOO Soviet troops and 40,000 Afghans loyal to the Kabul regime], complete with air-power, challenged poorly equipped rebels. The rebels would have been defeated quite easily if it hadn’t been for two things The West was very quick to send aid, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Britain and China sent weapons and medical supplies to the Mujahadin rebels. Secondly, the mountainous terrain made it possible for the 200,000 rebels to find secure hiding places. Unlike Vietnam, the war in Afghanistan has been a holy one, with fundamentalist Muslims on one side and secular Communists on the other. In Afghanistan, the US supported the radical Islamic faction which it has tried so hard to suppress elsewhere in the Middle
talist Mujahadin would be considered a threat to the West if they were in a pro-western state such as Egypt. The reason for the American defeat in Vietnam was a matter of communications, Television news coverage showed Americans first hand the horrors of the
war. That more than anything left scars on the American culture. In Russia however there was no such coverage.
Why then is the Red Army pulling out ? A great many things have occurred since 197% The old regime of Breshnev has been passed over to the new, more modern Gorbechev leadership. As part of his efforts to improve the productivity and quality of life in the U.S.S.R., the Soviets have taken a policy of detente. What is more, the war in Afghanistan has been a huge drain on Russian resources. Also in 1987, Ronald Reagan undertook a massive effort to force the Soviets into a decision by sending the rebels anti-aircraft missiles, Before the missiles arrived the rebels were defenseless against Soviet helicopters. Stripped of their air power, the Red army was unable to launch major offenses without escalating the war further. And that is exactly what the Kremlin didn’t want.
Eight Years in an Unsuccessful War The Soviet Union’s credibility in the Middle East has suffered. They have appeared as the enemy of Islam, a role which they have tried to give the Americans. For this they have lost about 18,000 of their soldiers. The Americans have spent $2 billion to stop the Soviet intervention, for which they have gained nothing other than diplomatic points for embarrassing the U.S.S.R. Pakistan, Afghanistan’s southern neighbour, has had to deal with an influx of some three million ref*ees. Most of all, Afghanistan has suffered from war atrocities by both sides. Her towns have been bombed, her countryside burned and over a million have been left dead. Afghanistan also stands to suffer the most in the future. Removal of the Soviet presence will not end the war, It will just give the Mujahadin the ability to take the initiative. And who can predict how long the civil war will continue? It took only a year for the South Vietnam government to fall after the Americans left, How long will the Ka~bul regime remain, and can the various factions of Mujahadin rebels resist the temptation to fight amongst themselves? Only time will tell.

Native playwrights by Ed Drass Imprint staff Like the land claim of the Lubicon Lake Cree Indians, many native groups across Canada are engaged in various negotiations and even court cases fighting to gain control over land they consider theirs. Many have taken to publicizing their situations in many different ways, in order to gain support, However, only a few of these groups have taken to the stage to tell people across the country about their particular fights. Two tribes in British Columbia developed a play called No Xya’, which means Our Footprints, and sent it across the country, where it found its way to the Humanities Theatre May 9.
Combination of history, documentary, dance and discussion The play, a collaboration between fiea”dlines Theatre and the Tribal’ Council of the Gitskan and Wetsuwet’en peoples, was a purposefully obvious vehicle to put across the story of the tribes and their current court fight with the governments of British
Having minimal contact with native people, I had little idea of what it was going to be like. I only knew the play would probably not follow the structure of “shows” that so many of us are used to, Native “entertainment” usually follows the beat of a different drum - and there is always a drum, With the aid of simple sets, (wood painted with symbols of mountains, rivers and salmon as well as a symbolictotem pole)‘, the company brought the audience to a mystical battlefield and then through a history of the land of the Gitskan and Wetsuwet’en peoples. The history was of three part’s: a time of plenty, fdllowed by the first contact with white settlers and finally a collection of scenes depicting the recent past with conflicts between native and non-native families as well asbet ween natives and loggers and even shotgun-wielding fisheries officers. All this was interspersed with mystical dances and chants. Even with ble treatments
and reasoning ages.
The unique exhibit, entitled “Torsos and Heads,” opened at the UW Arts Centre Gallery on May 12. Toronto based artist Joan Krawczyk’s work was a subdued but intimate affair for the small gathering present. Krawczyk moved through the gallery explaining each of her pieces and answering questions. The representational collection, which covered works from various stages of her artistic development, came alive as she explained the thought patterns
comerk, clergy and government representatives, the play was not one to make non-native Can. The company, adians upset. comprised of four capable actors, was evenly divided into native and non-native with many different roles being held by each, aiding the mix of cultural styles the play represented. Various simple “rituals” were tied in with the history. Recordings of native speech and drumbeats accompanied the gradual raising of a totem pole throughout the play.
Columbia and Canada, Subtitled “A Play About Self-Government” the shqw turned out to be a combination of history, documentary, dance, discussion and, even a mini-potlatch ceremony. [buttons were handed out during the show.)

NO’ XYA (OUR A
Currently considered one of Canada’s rising talents, Ms. Krawczyk ui;es the adult human for.m in all her work, “Children,” she said, “are not sufficiently developed and their characters are not defined yet.” “I find it difficult to fully grasp the identity of a child,” She seems though, to have captured the essence of the adult completely. Earlier in her career+ she created large pure iconic portrait heads which tended toward an almost better than life interpre-
Left generally wiser
tation of the human being and its characteristics, She has now left this very personal level of art behind as she has become more concerned with human naturb and our problems interrelating. Faces are often absent or shielded in her mature work but the images grow in power despite this missing quality. Ears, necks, nipples and pelvises have become the focus in these pieces, strangely emphasizing how we have come to view those around us. Krawczyk is concerned about the lack of communication and human involvement conducted between human beings each day.
The discussion that took the place of the, second act was simply a question and answer session between the audience and the actors as well as an elder from the Gitskan-Wetsuwet’en area. This served as an information session for those who wanted to know more about the actual land claim and court case, I left generally wiser, and with an overall feeling of calm. I had just enjoyed a look into a culture I’ve always known was there but had not previously explored+ I have the feeling that others also have a curiosity concerning native peoples, and na?ional success of this play suggests there may be a wave of interest among Canadians about the cultures and people that connect us to the past of our continent.
of human nature One of her recent pieces shows a man wearing sunglasses and listening to a Walkman hiding behind a sprig of an almond branch. With this piece, she strongly states her opinions of our present society but holds out
a glimmer of hope in the springtime budding of the almond branch, “Torsos and Heads” can be viewed until June 19 in the Modern Languages Building. Highly recommended!
Flawed Anne of Green Gables still a charmer. by Kelly Cascone Imprint staff The Centre in the Square has done it again with Canada’s most popular musical - Anne of Green Gables. The smash performance captivated the audience of all ages. There was something for everyone in the show. The children were amused by the many small actors and actresses. Adults in, the audience were entertained by the light-hearted comedy. The Eastern Canadian setting for the story line made the show interesting. It was a nice switch to see a production which refers to people and places the audience can easily relate to. American productions are usually well done and entertaining but there is something to be said for the sense of pride one can feel by seeing a Canadian show
Kitchener area and lived here before moving to her present home in Sudbury, Ontario, The show was not flawless however; a few opening night jitters were evident. The smallest boy in the cast slipped up on his one and only line in the entire show. Instead of saying, “Come on, Miss Stacey” to his teacher he said, “Come on, Miss Shirley.” Shirley was Anne’s last name, not his teacher’s, The boy could not have been older than 5 or 6 years old. After he realized his error, he continued as if nothing had happened, which is exactly what any accomplished actor would do. It was obvious the directors made a trade-off when they were casting the roles of the leading characters. Glenda Landry played Diana Barry, Anne’s

by Wonny Pae Imprint staff After almost a decade’s worth of superb song writing, Spadina Hotel gigs and just plain hard work. *Andrew Cash has certainly built himself a rock-solid foundation and now he’s finally able to put something on top of it: a major deal with the big boys at Island Records, As the first Canadian artist signed to the label of such notables -as U2 and Steve Winwood, Andrew Cash has acomplished something to be
proud of, and it ain’t’ undeserved - his strong energetic vocals, backed up by melodic electroacoustics topped off with a nice clean production makes his debut LP, Time and Place, something of an oasis in a desert of just too many flash-in-the-pan albums. Although the catchy title track will most likely transform this Queen Street native from being Canadian independent artist of yesterday to being as mainstream as the St. Lawrence River tomorrow, he nevertheless has successfully undergone the transition to a major label while maintaining his song writing integrit y. L’Etranger fans will remember Andrew Cash as being the front man of this Canadian indie band since their formative years in the early eighties. Their energetic forti of protest music not only
got them labelled as “th&lash of Canada’* by some, but also earned them a Juno in 1984, which they adamantly refused in protest of the faGt that the Juno sponsor was tied business-wise to South Africa - and this was at

a time when the apartheid issue was not yet brought to the general awareness of most Canadians. After the 1986 evaporation of L’Etranger, Andrew emerged on the indie scene as a vibrant solo force, with his early Fringe releases such as the upbeat Trclil of Teurs earning him critical acclaim for not only his strong vocals and catchy guitar hooks, but also for his top-notch song writing ability. This sound has stayed with Andrew on Time and Place, and he and producer John Switzer (Jane Siberry bassist/producer) have characteristically kept the subtle mistakes on vinyl, resulting in an honest and bared-boned sound coming through. The music here ranges from tuneful and contemplative ballads to straight ahead upbeat pop melodies, laced at times with a folky feel born of Andrew’s predominantly acous ti-
he manages to maintain a balanced compromise between the music and the message. Nine months of solo touring with nothing more than a faithful acoustic guitar have honed Andrew Cash for his current Canadian tour, which brought the rootsy Torontonian’ back to his home turf to play the Horseshoe Tavern for two dates (April 20th and 21st), this time accompanied by his five member recording band. The highly successful tour, coupled with the fine LP, will firmly establish Andrew Cash as a major Canadian artist, both here at home and elsewhere after - the forthcoming worldwide release of Time and Place,.. and after ten highly-acclaimed years in the Canadian indie scene, it’s about time this veteran minstrel has finally come of age. Andrew Cash’s Time and Place it seems, is very “here and now”.

Is fIREHOSE the quintessential American band of the late 8Os? Take the ashes of The Minutemen (bassist Mike Watt and drummer George Hurley) and add an REM freak, Ed fROMOHI0 (nee Crawford), on guitar and a whole American musical heritage from CCR to Charlie Parker, and fIREHOSE stands in the same position as the REM of five or six years ago - a familiar sound that still sounds as distinctive and refreshing as a double-scooper of lime sherbet under a noonday desert sun. Although mbre accessible than their debut wailer, Ragin’, Full On. “if ‘n” is still freeform andslapdash enough to suggest that they’re making it up on the spot, notes seemingly just falling from out of the sky, and things aren’t made Top do-friendly rambing, stream-of-unconciousness lyrics (i.e. From One Cums One - ” try and prove this song by loading ft in a central american gun. quit the army! think love! now think the stars without any reason, held up by nothing...ya, none of your business) imagine this: the stars are being swallowed up by your eyes”). But with virtuosos like Mike “thunder broom” Watt and Hurley and with Ed showing that he’s been digging a lot of jazz and fusion improvisation, everything seems to have an organic (sorry, awful word) sense of purpose even when it seems most directionless.
The quintessential American band of the 8Os? But can they write songs, scream the proles. Hell, they can even write REM songs; For The Singer Of REM is one of the best in-jokes of the year, in one feel swoop poking the title of REM’s biggest hit, Ed fROMOHIO’s love of Stipe and co. (apparently Watt and Hurley have quite a time making sure Ed’s songs don’t all turn out as homage to Peter Buck’s guitar), nonsensical Southern mysticism - try telling me that “here’s a version of tradition” isn’t a vintage Stipe lyric and make the whole thing sound like Driver 8. There are even a couple of hit singles here, if radio programmers didn’t all have their heads up their arses. The lovely In Memory of EIizabeth Cotton takes a folky stroll through the clover, a spare, dignified tearjerker that reminds me of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours for some ungodly reason. Maybe America wasn’t so bad afte~$l. Honey Please, with its brillihnt walking bass line, is an infectious pop/rock anthem if ever I’ve heard one, and the relentlessly rolling drums turn Someti,mes into a jolting, jarring three minutes of rock n’ roll yumminess’ The ghost of d.

The material on Owl Owl Owl is melodically unremarkable nor, as you might expect from an R & B album, is it particularly innovative. Nope’, Owl Ow! Ow! is a roots album in the truest sense, celebrating the R & B roots of rock rather than trying to update the sound into something with crossover potential, at the risk of sounding like a Billboard hack. And what a celebration! The songs may be simple, but that just gives the musicians all the opportunity they need for wild soloing - and if you give Barrence a chance to scream, he ain’t’ gonna shut up until he’s wailed you half-deaf, Rockin’ The Mule, Stop Twistin’ My Arm, and Runnin’ And
on the roots rock bandwagon. The song Pop Star has the band repeating “I wanna be a pop star” with a voice asking “What’s the gist of this thing, give me a sign,” Don’t worry guys, you can’t even write a pop song. You’ll never be pop stars, But I’m not really telling you anything you don’t already know am I? Anybody who writes a song repeating how much he can’t stand his little dog shitting on the rug won’t be making the top 40.
years. Just about everything that comes out nowadays has that roots rock feel. After listening to a couple songs of this album I was ready to give up. Nothing especially new here, but that was until Hang Tough, the third song on the first side. The tempo picked up, and Bob Forrest the lead singer(?!) launches into an attack qn the people who ignore the madness, suicide, and drugs so prevalent ifi this world, From here on in, the album swiftly changes gears and drives off into an as of yet unexplored territory. In Michael Jordan Bob Forrest talks about “just sitting around watching syndicated TV all day,” and the enjoyment he gets from watching Michael Jordan perform his magic on the court. Low Boy is an instrumental piece complete with tuba, that completely dispelled my thoughts that this band was just jumping

My favourite song is Key To Life,..Tonight. Bob Forrest tells the listener “Wish I knew the key to life..,since I don’t think I’ll have antoher Budweiaer,“isn’t that art-rock pretension crap. Instead, bob and his band exude an honesty that’s typical of most of the music that I listen to. I suggest that you get your butt down to your local import retailer and ask for it. This is just about the best piece of a vinyl crossing my path in months.

by John Hymers Imprint staff All Live And All Of The Night is the Stranglers’ latest live offering and it mines the gemladen veins of Stranglers’ past albums, stretching from their debut 1977 punk classic,Rattus Norvagicue, to last year’s fantastic Dreamtime. Rarely does a band do such a retrospective set; consequently, All Live And All Of The Night is one hell of a good album. Side one has Down in the Sewer, Always the Sun, and Golden Brown in a row: arguably their three best songs (my three favorites at any rate]. The Stranglers treat them with spontaneity, Down in the Sewer has that wild organ and great length, and Golden Brown strays from the original in a wonderful way, but not too far, These three songs show what the Stranglers are capable of: Sewer is a loud, punky piece, while Always the Sun is a meiodic, lovely song. All of their owti compositions are played well -they know their material well enough to fool around with it. But their version of the Kinks’ signature tune AI1 Day and all of the Night lacks punch.

I thought the lead vocals were too weak Garry Priestman, the lead vocalist seemed naked without the backup of’his brother and Henry Priestman. I still feel the lead vocals could be stronger, but the album has grown on me to the point where I really like it. The Christians, besides their obvious acappella influence also bring funk, Motown, and jazz into their mix. Add some spiritual longing too, and you’ve got the Christian’s album. Not a bad debut release.

Head Peter Piet Botman digs Imprint coverage.
. by Jim Harman
After a couple of beers, The Randypeters come on stage, and the crowd reaction is close to nil. Not for long mind you, as the girls sitting around me started to &ream everytime Piet Botman the Peters’ lead singer moved. His headstand got such good response that my friend contemplated approaching him after the show tar a personal extra set. that: plays Hey, anybbdy AC/DC’s Highway TO I-Jell is alright with me, Obviously, the crowd thought so too, as the dance floor was filled with grooving bodies. I really don’t know why this band isn’t a headlining act: They gave the crowd a hard edged set that’s somewhere between The Soul Asyhn and 54-40. Apparantly, they have an album coming out sometime this summer. Maybe this will get them more recognition by &e mainstream media.
Compiled by Ed Drass SPECIAL NOTE: You should be aware that the Fed Flicks are not going to be held in Arts Lecture Hall this term. Instead go over to the Physics Building by the Engineering Lecture Hall for the films. And because there are fewer people here this summer, there will be only one show per night. That’s Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8 pm. The schedule appears to be a pretty good sampling of recent commercial Hollywood films (only a few clunkers) with a few cool semi-underground works like SidandNancy and the very slick Raising Arizona, both in early July. Pick up schedules in CC and make sure you have the right time and place. Also note that the price for Feds is now $2, but I wouldn’t get too offended as it was a buck for many years. Two loonies, big dea1. _ FILM NOTES: Basically its pretty low-key this term, as far as local film screenings go. According to Ian Uhde, Film Studies prof, there are pretty well no film courses this term. (If you hear of something, let me know.] However there has been a little action from the Fine Arts FiIm Society who have gotten their hands on some new films from the Embassy of Poland. I understand they are very high quality and worth the risk. The last one is tonight, Friday, (lots of notice, I know) at 7 in East Campus Hall, Screening Room 1220. Get a membership for $3’and use it at future Film Society showings. They should be in full swing in September, perhaps coordinating with the WLU Film Club. Speaking of Laurier, it:s pretty dead over there, Don’t expect anything from the Film Department, Film Society or Student Union until September. As you can see, I’ve been scratching for anything, and the Waterloo cultural dust bin is pretty dry. So what did I do? I scummed’s a job at the Princess. But don’t woiry, I won’t endanger my sacred trust as newspaper hack with a cheap case of conflict of interest. As far as the repertory scene, the Gorge in Elora is chugging along and I hope to get out there by bike for a day. The big deal is the new cinema to open in Guelph. To be combined with an existing cafe and bookshop, this “entertainment complex” should do well, considering the large Guelph student population. Guelph is actually a pretty neato’*place, and I look forward to going out there.
As for the The Tragically Hip, they rocked, they rolled, they moved your butt. Nothing really new here, that American roots rock sound complete with jangly guitars has been around for awhile now. The Hipsters were quite willing to mix in some Stones and -other classic rock tunes with their own, It probably won’t be long before these guys are real famous. Lead singer Gordie Downie can really belt out the songs. Unlike a lot 6f those independint bands, Gordie has got real vocal talent. It probably doesn’t hurt that he has a Jim Morrison type of appeal and look, and as a bonus one the Ruitarist looks like Peter Bucks’ brother. Not bad for a few measly bucks,

Imagine the indignation Woody Allen would feel if he had his Bergman Appreciation Society dinner party crashed by the entire MTV crew, gushing, “Oh, wow, like t-his is so rad, I mean, 1 we really love Art Bergman and vision and passion. Poisoned too, man,” and you get Shorter essays deal with evaa feeling for the tone of The Soliluations of novelist Elias Canet ti tary Outlaw. A certain amount of self-righteousness is almost inevitable given the subject matter of the book - the iritellectual’s fall from grace in contemporary society - but to B. W. Powe’s [as everyone knows, a true intellectual has no given names, only initials) credit, The Solitary Outlaw never becomes insufferably self-important. Much has been made of our epoch being the post-modern age, but Powe, with varying degrees of lucidity and reactionary outrage, ,defines the second half of the twentieth century as the post-literate age, an era ruled by mass culture and consumer-oriented disposability. The book begins and ends with what seem to Powe to be nightmarish visions of going-out-of-business sales in bookstores and huge bonfires of books. But these book-burnings are not a response to the subversive tendencies of literature - that would be for society to admit the power of literature, philosophy, and the like. Rather, they’re being burned because they’re perceived as useless; it’s like clearing one’s house of all its excess junk. Concentrated engagement with the written word has been replaced by a pervasive “musicality”, an inobtrusive Mtizaklike background hum that doesn’t let thought processes interfere with the daily business of making as much money as humanly possible and keeping abreast of all trends. I-Ience Powe’s outrage, Today’s society is perhaps the most functionally literate in history, but the intellectual has no place in -_it. The liberally educated intellectual is now regarded as a , joke at worst, and at best, a , rather quaint, archaic fictional ; entity while the streamlined education of techies is embraced by the post-graduation workforce. Pow; makes no apologies for having pursued a non-utilitarian education; whether society wishes to acknowledge it or not, Powe possesses a powerful and restless intellect that demands to be heard and longs for the days when the intellectual’ not only had something to say, but was also an exalted member of society. As the title suggests, the crux of The Solitary Outlaw is that the role of the intellectual has changed from being the voice of society to being the detached critic of society. The book is divided into admiring essays on five of this century’s most controversial and uncompromising maverick thinkers. The bulk of The Solitary Outlaw is dedicated to the title essay, an appreciation of the much-maligned modernist, novelist, and essayist, Wyndham Lewis (no, not the guy who wrote Day of the Triffide). Lewis was a radical political theoretician who feared the dulling and consuming influence .
and media icon Marshall McLuhan and, perhaps the most fascinating part of the book, an examination of the writings and misunderstood character of Glenn Gould whose theories of communication and music are only beginning to make an impression on the scholarly establishment. It wasn’t without a wee bit of skepticism that I wandered into this volume, prepared to be put off with two hundred pages of, “Oh, woe are we incredibly sensitive intellectuals, whine, whine, cringe, cringe, etc.,,” but The Solitary Outlaw, in the final analysis, is a perceptive, reasoned critique of contemporary society.

of the large crowd - it is testimony to Powe’s impassioned yet reasoned writing that he can make us so interested in, and sympathetic to, a writer he knew little about. The other major essay, The Quiet Civil War, is devoted to former Prime Minister Trudeau, focussing on two events - the 1968 Liberal Leadership Convention and the 3984 convention where he was honoured by his party.

You Got hardcore
by Phil Robinson Imprint staff In their bio sheet, David Itko the lead singer says he has “a certain feeJing of being overwhelmed by the elements out there.” I’11 have to agree. There’s so much happening out there it’s difficult to always, filter out the garbage. Luckily, I could still filter out this garbage, When I put this album on the turntable and sat down to listen I soon forgot about it. It all tends to sound the same. Even my mother thought the music kind of lulled you to sleep, and was ultimately boring. Perhaps the only song that shows some potential is RIP Planet, The rest of the album would be great for insomniacs. There’s nothing horrible going on here, just nothing better than mediocrity. David Ilku says, “We’re all creative people. We’d die if we didn’t have that outl’et to be able to share and communicate a warm feeling.” Hmm. If that’s true World At A Glance is either dead or dying. They’re not communicating anything at all,
all right, all right, it’s even passably entertaining album and I’m just a miserable bastard today. Tomorrow 4’11 probably love em, but if you’re a corehead, chances are you’ll like You Got It from the first listen.

Unanswerable Lust makes an unfulfillable promise with its Redneck. Sounds first song, magazine picked it as a Single of the Week and praised it as “unique and near perfect.” I can’t argue there. But perhaps I am just not hip or cool enough to praise the rest of the album similarly. The album isn’t bad: the mind behind Jerky Versions of the Dream, and the co-founder of the Buzzcocks and Magazine, couldn’t do anything that was that bad. Yet, I can’t help but feel that there was something lacking with Howard Devoto’s latest effort, and that of his newest collaborator, Noko. It could ju+ be me; others seem to love this album. But the rest of the album lacks the hard-hitting and strikingly groovy sound.of Redneck. Sure, Public Highway is cool, and Rubbish is too, but they alone could not have guided my purchase as Redneck did. In summation, if Devoto’s lust is music, the title of the album is a disappointing, but true, selffulfilling prophecy.
Any band that only allows itself to be photographed drinking Bud and surrounded by empty’, Bud cans either deserves a permanent niche in the cool kingdom of hoserdom’, or just has abominable taste. Bud does taste like warmed-over mule piss, but I’m inclined to go with the former, Gang Green is a band of Beantowners that likes to “get hammered and be concerned with world issues concurrently” in the sagacious words of the press release. Maybe if I was one of those hardcore for hardcore’s sake muses’ I could get a little more enthusiastic over You Got It, but as it is, Gang Green is amusing, but fairly pedestrian hardcore.

Midnight Oil ,-burns
by John Hym8rB Imprint stuff
Peter Garret had broken his leg over a month ago in a surfing accident, so the story goes, forcing Midnight Oil’s sold-out Toronto show to be postponed until Sunday, May 8. Garret is essentially a physical performer, so it was necessary for,him to recuperate. The buckets of sweat that he was to shed that evening were testimony to his successful convalescence. Midnight Oil was outstanding. Fantastic. They exuded energy, naw’, they were energy. The close confines of the Concert Hall were pleasing to Garret, who made this known in both word and deed; he said he loved it and then he led the Oil’s in perhaps what was the best show those hailowed tialls have ever given shelter to. They concentrated, quite . rightly, on Died And hat; wisely keeping the one-two punch of the mellow Arctic ’ World and the frantic War&ma intact, working in their fervent politicizing. But they drew from the past as well, playing Best of the Both Worlds among other Oil standards. As an encore, they chose Nick Lowe’s (What’s So Funny About] Peace, Love, And Understanding. Given their message and conviction, a better coda would have been hard to find. .
!R SPORTS Part 1 - The October by Mike McGraw Imprint
This is the first of three orticles chronicling the plight of the University of Waterloo football program. The three-part feature will analyze the chuin of events beginning with the player rebellion in October, 1987 clnd ending with new head coach Dave “Tujfy” Knight’s 1988 rebuilding project. Nothing was out of the ordinary as the Waterloo Warriors filed into the visitors’ locker room at halftime at Guelph on October 8, 1987. Trailing 33-R they were well on their way to a fifth consecutive loss for the season, and 21st straight dating back to October 12,1984. Losing had become a way of life. But this night, the Warriors were in for a very unordinary halftime talk. Bob McKillop, head coach since 1982, used no Xs and OS on the chalkboard-as he addressed his players that memorable Thursday night.
McKillop told the team he was aware of a plot by a player or players trying to see him fired. He also announced his intention to find the culprit or culprits. Bewildered and shocked, the Warriors returned to the field as the Gryphons rolled to a 48-8 slaughter. As would become evident later, the first dominoe in a bizarre chain of events had fallen. At a team meeting on Thanksgiving day, McKillop once again challenged those plotting against him to come forward with their concerns. In a move reminiscent of Mutiny On the Bounty, the players took matters into their own hands. Asking all coaches to leave, the players held a secret vote, The results were overwhelming: 47 of 54 players voted for a coaching change, three were opposed and four abstained. The next morning, team captains presented a petition signed by 48 team members to Dean of Students Ernie Lucy. The players wanted a change. Yet this wasn’t the first visit Lucy received from Warrior football players. Two weeks prior to the Guelph game, several players went straight to Lucy with their concerns regarding McKillop’s leadership. As the plot unfolded, this action became somewhat of an issue around campus. “I had a number of football players come to me with a problem,” Lucy said. “As dean of students, I talk to students all the time - it’s part of my job; They merely asked what they could do about it because they were unhappy with the program. I indicated they should go through the normal channels, but I also said that if a substantial number of people were unhappy, then I would see if icould do something about it,” On October 13, team captains took him ufi on that offer. After receiving the petition, Lucy and Men’s Athletic Director Wally Delahey met with the captains to hear their side. Shortly afterward, Lucy and Delahey held a meeting with McKillop, who vo-
luntarily resigned his position. With two games still remaining on the Warriors schedule, confusion abounded. As most struggled to piece together the chaotic saga, one question lingered: who would coach the final two games? It was widely believed if the Warriors didn’t meet their obligations to the schedule, the program would be terminated. McKillop had the support of all but one of his fellow football coaches, and agreed to man the sidelines for the last two games. Badgered and hounded, McKillop refused to comment on the fiasco, maintaining he would speak only after the season ended, McKillop’s two final attempts to break his three-year jinx were as successful as the previous 21. York trounced Waterloo 3847 on October 16. On a cold miserable day at Windsor a week later, the Warriors dropped their 23rd consecutive football game, 24-7. Things had always been rather gloomy with the program, but this time it had hit an all-time low. As the mud drenched team left the field that day, one had to wonder if it would be the last memory of Waterloo football. McKillop’s record at Waterloo had finished at 4-37-1. Meanwhile, the local press blasted the players for their actions. One writer even called,thF players “crybaby jocks,” who should stick to their academic pursuits. Captain Chris Maecker absorbed most of the heat as he acted as the players’ spokesman in the upheaval’s early stages. The players were even blamed for causing the end of the program, But October 26 was the day everybody involved had waited for: the day McKillop spoke out.
A dreary day The mood inside of Kuntz House at Labatt’s was as dreary as the rainy day outside. In a dimly lit room sat a somber McKillop, flanked by Delahey and Athletic Director Carl Totzke. Around them sat a handful of media people, who themselves looked downtrodden. It was like a group of relatives had gathered to mourn the passing of a loved one, or in this case, coach and program, Although McKillop appeared drained from the previous three weeks, it didn’t dampen his bitterness, In a three-page press release, McKiilop slammed the players and university administration [Lucy) for their roles in the uprising. “The involvement of the university administration for up to a month previous to my being told by an outside party is, in my opinion, a gross error in management procedure,” said McKillop. “The manner in which the team chose to bring this issue forward and the deceit with which-it was carried out will be with me always. I have the utmost respect for most 01 our players and would not, and in fact have not, publicly centred anyone out in a critical manner although there were plenty of opportunities after every game to do so.” In a more memorable comment, McKillop, answering the
question of whether he held any animosity toward the players as a group, replied, “you don’t get kicked in the teeth and say thank-you’.” But McKillop raised an important issue regarding varsity athletic revolts. “The fact that team members were advised and encouraged as how to proceed with their coup is of great concern as well. The real tragedy here is not the plight of Bob McKillop, it is the precedent that has been set for future player revolts on our university teams and how they will be handled by whoever they are presented to.” McKillop was referring to the manner in which team captains bypassed him and the athletic administration and went directly to Lucy with their gripes. He stated that at no time in his tenure as head coach “did Chris Maecker or any other captain approach me or atiyone else in the athletic department with their stated concerns.” Some worried that a dangerous precedent had been established. Would disgruntled ’ players in the future be able band together, surpass athletic I heads and have their demands ‘met? Lucy, didn’t see this as a problem. ’ He reiterated that he initially told the players to go through normal channels, adding, “I hardly call this instructing them to do anything,” As to McKillop’s charges of mismanagement, Lucy retorted “rightly or wrongly, they felt if they went to the department heads they wouldn’t get anywhere. The captains had been trying to resolve the problem for a long time, but without success.” Lucy also expressed anger over the media’s portrayal of the players as conspirators or members of a coup. “The players made an honest
effort to comDlain, and while they were gruhbling, they took no real action until the coach challenged them and asked what the problem was. They came back and said the reason was the coach. The players have been getting a bum rap. They didn’t get a petition going until McKillop challenged them. Reports depicting the players as people scheming in the background are unfair. McKillop did it to himself, he challenged the players.” But as the hostilities and arguing became redundant, Lucy suggested the focus should switch from the locker room to the board room. However, some weren’t so certain there was a future to look forward to. That dreary day at Kuntz House, the questjon wasn’t who would coach the Warriors in 1988, but would there be a team to coach?
on the ropes
Delahey cautioned against any optimism, stating, “we have done submissions as to what we feel is required for the future, should we get these projections, we’re on-going, if we don’t, I don’t think we’re on-going. If we can get funds and the firm commitment for more than a year, then we’re going to go. But we have to decide whether to get on with the package - or forget it+” The problem ran much deeper than player revolts and coaching records. For the program to continue, serious upgrading would be needed in the areas of fulltime coaches, facilities and recruiting programs. If the Warrior program was going to cease to be the OUAA’s longest running joke, mbney was needed. Lucy never had any doubts about the program’s future. “Some people say there isn’t going to be a program because of
what the players did,” Lucy said-
*“But this is wrong. I’ve discussed the problem with the university president [Dotig Wright] and the program will continue.” Former Federation of Students’ Athletic Commissioner . Shane Carmichael joined Lucy as an ardent optimist. “Considering that students pay for this program through athletic fees, we feel they have some say in the future of the program. The Federation of Students as well as a considerable number of students have indicated to me that the program should continue.” As the somber group dispersed at Kuntz House, the final word from Delahey was that a decision on the program would be made before Christmas, So while the dust had settled on the now infamous October Revolution, the program, depending on who you listened to, seemed in jeopardy. But the events of October raised some important questions regarding the football program at Waterloo+ ones that had been neglected. Would a coaching change have come about if the players had not decided to rebel? The athletic department won’t say, but make it known they didn’t like the- circumstances under which they were eventually forced to make a decision. Why did McKillo ‘s record reach 4-35-Z before hpe was relieved of his duties? And more importantly, do university athletes have the right to join together and usurp a coach if they are unhappy with his/her leaderehip? Will this incident set a precedent
this or any other ueiversity? The questions are endless, but as October turned into November, and Winter approached, there was a more important question. Would there ever be football again at the University of Waterloo?
Memories of basketball games past. ---I Stiefelmeyer, Jones have burned the Warriors by Refton Blair Imprint staff
For most sports fans, the ideal sporting event is that winning season or game, when it brings you a chill just thinking about it. Ben Johnson’s display of sheer human explosiveness in crushing Carl Lewis last summer irl Rome was such an event. Baseball addicts probably remember the skid of the 87 Blue Jays, who lost to the Tigers in the final game of the season, blowing their seven-game lead. , For Warriors sports fans, the basketball warriors gave them their share of treasured moments during the 1987-88 season. Who among us can forget that numbingly cold windy day in mid-February when the youthful Warriors, led by their Larry Bird-cloned leader Ro.b Froeae, fought back from a 15 oint deficit to take the eventua f Western division winners, the Western Mustangs, to overtime before losing by two points? This was a game comparable in intensity and play to any division 1 NCAA game last season. It was a nip-and-tuck affair, in which future CIAU All-Canadian John Stiefelmeyer displayed his overwhelming talent by burying the Warriors with 27 points. Yet this was not the first year the Warriors had been burned by individual talent. Four years ago, the York Yeomen came intd the PAC, having easily muscled their way through the East. Their team was loaded with veteran players; John Christensen, a national team try-out and All-Canadian; Mark Jones, a soon-to-be TSN sportscaster; and OUAA first team All-Star for the East, Tim Rider, Our Warriors countered with such greats as Peter Savich, Paul Boyce, Randy Norris and then second-year player Rob Froese. But the difference that day was the play of Jones who, in the second half, was hotter than a blow torch. What made his play even more surprising was that earlier that year, in the Mike Moser Memorial game, the same York team and Jones was disgraced by the Warriors, who won by 15 points in phi slamma jamma fashion. On this day, IJoneS’ crafty play took away the Warrior guard position and fkustrated the Warriors into missing uncontested shots, Jones’ artistry was most evident in his confidence when he went to the foul line in the second half. With the game tied and ‘he Warrior devotees, all 4000 plus of them, screaming cheers and (friendly) obscenities at him, he
sank both foul shots and then stole the in-bound pass, which pushed York up by four. This was a lead the Yeomen would never relinquish. All these memories of the Warrior past have been provided to us through the coaching effort of IT-year head coach Don McCrae. Since he joined the team in 1971, Coach McCrae has established such a successful program, he has become accustomed to players transferring to Waterloo just to get a chance to play in his program. He has amassed an overall record of 391 wins against 190 defeats. Coach McCrae has also been involved with the Canadian Women’s Olympic programas head coach, highlighted by a fourth place finish in Los Angeles in 1984. Over the past 17 years, the Warriors have made six visits to the CIAU championships, winning once in 1975, finishing third, in 1974,1978, and 1977, andlosing in the final game in 1983 and 1984. In the OUAA, the Warriors have an impressive record of 157 victories against 47 defeats under McCrae. Our Warriors have finished first in the West, ten of the past 17 years, with two second place finishes, not including this year’s finish. In McCrae’s time as Warrior’s coach, the closest he came to a losing league record was a 6-6 season in 1981-82. Personally, Coach McCrae has garnered for himself two OUAA coach of-the year awards, in 1978 and 1980, and shared the award in 1985. He was also chosen CIAU coach of the year in 1985. Some of the talent McCrae has come into contact with during his stay at Waterloo are accomplished basketball players in their own right. Any true Warrior basketball fan will have heard the name Mike Moser. He represents the optimum in
it’s 1977 (above) or Waterloo and Western
Waterloo basketball. It is in his memory that the Mike Moser Memorial game is played every yegr. His sudden death in the winter of 1975 meant more than the loss of a great player. “(With) the way he went at things, everyone was touched by his life.” McCrae said last January. “it was a real loss when he died.” The team felt Moser’s loss so much they only introduced four of their five starters for the remainder of that season in Moser’s honour. Moser’s basketball skills meant that he dominated the OUAA and CIAU at the time of his death. He received the CIAU

most valuable player award posthumously, and had the award named in his honour. On the court Moser was a 6’8”, 195 lb, center/forward and a three-time CIAU first team AllCanadian. In 1973-74, he led the country in points per. game, ‘and was second in field goal percentage with a 63.3 average. He also averaged 35 minutes a game that season. At the time of his death, he was one 6f the ple’yers picked to play for the Canadian national team. In the two full seasons he

.spent with the Warriors, Mike Moser held sixteen of the eighteen individual records. And he led the team for three years, with his rebounding averaging 8.5, 12.1, and 12,5, One player who followed in Moser’s shadow was guard/forward Seymour Hadwen, who played from 1975 to 1980. He led the Warriors in scoring, was invited to the national team try-out for the 1976 Olympics, and was picked for the CIAU All-Canadian second team in 1978. Hadwen finished his career as one of the leading scorers in OUAA history, and went on to represent Great Britain in the Olympic qualifying rounds. Steve Atkin, who spent only two seasons (1982-1984) with the Warriors after transferring from Calgary, followed Hadwen as the Warrior team leader, He was also an honourable mention All-Canadian, The Warriors of 1980-1985 had a number of leaders. They went to four consecutive CIAU championships and three championship games, The success of this group of players - Randy Norris+ Peter Savich, Paul Boyce, and Rob Froese - gave the impression the Warriors had become a CIAUbasketball dynasty. For the veteran Warrior coach though, there was no dynasty. *‘Because you cannot give out scholarships, every team will go in cycles,” McCrae said, He felt fortunate his team has had three or four good cycles, and views the change-intransfer rule as also influencing the success of teatis in the league. The future of the Warrior program seemed in doubt at the beginning of last season, but by mid-season they had surprised ‘many. Coach McCrae is looking forward to the future, expecting to watch the growth of his young talent.
