John Roberts will contest the Waterloo Liberal riding association nomination which is tentatively to be held on July 12. The former Trudeau cabinet minister, while expressing interest in the nomination, was hesitant to commit himself to the local fray.

Campus Recreation awoke on Tuesday, June 21 to find two windsurfing boards complete with sails had been stolen from the storage shed at Columbia Lake. Campus security determined the break-in occurred between ~:~o&JI. on June 20 and 2:00 p.m. on Jtine21 but has been unable to determine the actual time. Security officer Brian Bradley said, “The dpor’s locks were forced ‘:*a& the boards removed. There’s not much else to go on.” Vi&O Tsui, a representative of the windsurfing club which owns the boards, said, “I am disappointed in security. In midMay I reported to them that the locks on the shed had been tampered with and this time the same technique was used. This time they knew what they were doing.” The -windsurfers, which are valued at $2500, belong to the sailboarding program run by campus recreation. Tsui said, “Insurance coverage will help replace the boards but we are not sure if they will give us the replacement cost or the original price.” The replacement cost is $3000, not including the storage shed repairs.

Billets needed for conferencis The organizers of a major international youth conference to be held at UW this August are asking if any K-W families can provide bilbts for conference delegates. The Youth Building the Future conference, which will draw about 100 English-speaking university students from countries around the world to Waterloo+ August 15 - 20, needs the billets from the week prior to the co& ference to the week following. One of the conference organizers, John Herbert, a UW thirdyear Math student, says many of the students from other countries will use the conference opportunity to see parts. of southern Ontario while they are here. It’s the chance of a lifetime for many of them. “All we’re requesting is for anyone who thinks they can help

out to give me a call,++ Herbert says. Transportation will be the responsibility of the students and canference ornanizers.

The Youth Building the Future conference is the second such conference to be held: the first took place last year at a university in Australia. It will try to stimulate greater international awareness and cooperation among students. By increasing their understanding about other cultural, social and political systems and discussing a number of specific global issues including nuclear arms, pollution, the role of religion and third, world development, the students hope to learn from each other. Anyone who can help with billeting is asked to call Herbert at the university+ (519j 885-1211 ext: 6467 or at home 884-9860.

After practically a whole year’s work by the K-W Canada Day Council, the free Canada Day celebrations held annually at the University of Waterloo are ready to go. Events include a parade from Central Meat Market on King Street in Kitchener to the campus at 1O:OO a.m.; an open air concert at 1:00 p.m.; and KW’s largest fireworks display taking place over Columbia Lake at 9:45 p.m. Canada Day chairperson Shane Carmichael says it’s “definitely going to be an inteiesting (fourth) year” of Canada day celebrations on campus. Rival celebrations are held at Kitchener’s SportsWorld, an amusement park on highway eight and at the Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Centre’s events at Victoria park. The long weekend also offers competitive pull away from the region’s celebrations as people flock to cottage country. CHYM radio, a major corporate sponsor of this year’s celebrations, has been “really promoting”,the day’s events and will broadcast on the campus July I. Last year there were around 30,000 people at the UW ceremony. This year he expect& 10,000 at the parade and on campus during the day, and 30,000 people at the fireworks that night. Initially there were conflict of interest problems with Carmichael organizing Canada Day on campus this year. The questions

of complicity arose because of Carmichael’s dual status of Federation vice-president (operations and finance) and Canada Day Chairman. It was determined by the Federation of Students that a conflict of interest situation could be avoided as long as the Canada Day Committee avoided petitioning money from the Federation. Carmichael said the conflict was resolved by paying for all Federation resources used with Canada Day Co-ii money. The Federation is financially responsible for only the Endless Summer. concert un- *.b- village green, vhidh th8~: =&f&red to sponsor.

A new doctoral program in English has been approved by the University senate. The program will be unique for Canada. Entitled Literature, Rhetoric and Professional Writing, it will be offered by the English department to satisfy a current need for profestiors and professionals who have a background in literature and rhetoric, Rhetoric is the art of making a point, or writing to persuade. Undergraduate and masters’ programs in all three disciplines are already offered, and the introduction of the’ doctoral program reflects -a revival of interest in rhetorical thgory, and the need for writers and editors with a knowledge of more than just how to &rite: The demand foi’ writers with an advanced background in language and writing has increased greatly to fill .Posi)en? in .both .I governmenc the ano rne wsmess community.

It is not just a roblem of badly written manua Ys and poor public relations; the corporations have . come to realize writers need to know more than the conventions of writing. An understanding of language is vital for the design of effective communication’s technologies. The program is expected to appeal to students seeking a scholarly understanding of literature and the field of rhetoric, and to those interested in work in applied communications. Two to three years of graduate course work will be required with compulsory courses in literary theory, rhetoric81 theory, and research methods for professional writers, as well as in the students’ own area of specialization. Students in both graduate and undergraduate programs in rhetoric and professional writing spend work terms in a variety of writing and editing jobs in business, industry and public service.

..’ City of Waterloo’ 1studies student transit \ pass subsidies Macquwn Imprint staff

by neyr

Following the presentation of a report by the Federation of Student’s Vice-President (University Affairs) Wendy Rinella and . WLU Student Union’s President Karen Bird on Monday, June 20, Waterloo city council has set up a committee to study subsidizing a three month K-W Transit university student pass. Rinella and Bird struck a deal with Kitchener Transit for / a $120 three month pass. They have asked the City of Waterloo to contribute $25.50 of that cost to bring the student’s cost down to $94.50 - the high school student price. Sales of the existing four month pass declined to 422 in September, 1987 and 288 in January, 1988, a significant drop over previous years, the report says. According to the deport, currently students are paying more for transit if they buy a pass than if they pay the cash fare of $1.05. Based on 132 trips per semester, (2 trips per day during classes and half that during students are paying exams], $1.11 per ride. Kitchener Transit suggests students tiake an average of 139 trips, pegging the cost at $1.06 per ride. Adult monthly passes cost $LOO per ride based on 42 trips a month. “Students have chosen to live

closer to the university because it is cheaper,” Bird says, su gesting affordable transit wou ‘f de encourage students to seek housing further away from campus. The report also stresses students aren’t peak hour riders, as they don’t work business hours, and thus don’t overload _ * the ssSYS_ tern when it can least handle it. Presently, the student unions at both universities collect the money for bu 8 passes and give it Transit as a lump to Kitchener sum. They say they’re willing to continue ‘to do the administrative work involved with student passes; “While we don’t have the money to subsidize something like this,” Rinella said, “we certainly do have the person power to support it.” The councilors wefe supportive of the proposal, agreeing with Councilor Brian Turnbull, “from a transit point of view, I think the students have some fair points.” Councilor Andrew Telegdi; known to support student ’ issues, feels the City of Kitchener should also be involved in funding. “I think the City of Kitchener has to recognize Waterloo students live in Kitchener and spend money in Kitchener as well.” : The committee formed to study the proposal will report back to council at their first meeting in August, so the pass could be organized for this September.

are very creative - creative enough, that a smoke screen so thick has been generated that people in this town think exclusionary bylaws are an attempt to prevent students from filling a house beyond a sane maximum. People have similarly been sucked in to think that without exclusionary bylaws, student houses would degenerate ihto slums of untidy, bottle-littered waste lands, Students are the youth of’this community. The community does not have to be protected from the region’s student population. Those who are interested in safe living conditions, well kept properties, and mutually beneficial interaction have a tremendous amount in common with students at Waterloo’s two universities, The people students and their supporters have to fight in this exclusionary bylaw conflict are people who would resent a member of a minority group moving in next door because of a phobia that property values would plummet. If a house has six bedrooms there is no reason why six unrelated people -can’t live there. If citizens are convinced by Mayor Carroll’s smoke screen, -than why are there not restrictions for related persons living in a house. Afterall, a family could pack four kids into every bedroom of a house and the city could care less. Students do make good neighbors. Some abuses will. always take place in our neighborhoods. The abuses will be committed by a broad range of the community. It is a fallacy to generalize that where there’s students there’s trouble. Living on a student’s budget is difficult; yet, the City of Waterloo makes it more difficult for students

make ends meet. Municipalities have no right to arbitrarily discriminate on the basis of the puzzling number of “five.” Students, therefore, request that the City of Waterloo immediately discontinue the alienation of students in this community.

If the popular media, from the Toronto Sun to The Globe And Mail can be believed, the success of the G-7 Summit in Toronto was that there were “no surprises” - no security breaches, no flare-ups of international tensions, nothing but love, peace, and misunderstanding. Toronto The Good praised by world leaders as onmf the greatest metropolises since Rome and Athens, A big, wet, collective kiss for Uncle Reagan. No boot left unlicked by Mulroney. And, let’s not forget that sultry daughter of Italy’s head of state, That’s all any of tis saw of The Toronto Summit and that’s all we were supposed to see. The Sun’s coverage more resembled a transcript from Entmtrinmeat Tonight than resDonsible journalism, but ?he Summit is not about reporting breakthroughs on real issues of global import. It’s The Night of IOd Stars for western industrialized nations, a chance to don their GQ wear and show how concerned they are about world issues. One thing it’s not about is policies and politics; the supposed Bubstance of the Summit was noticeable only through its absence. Sure, there were lots of pictures of protesters being carried away by police, but did anyone, even the redoubtable Globe, care to mention whirt they were rotesting? Sometimes the most minor details are tR e most telling. The ubiquitous Blue Rodeo were detained .from playing their concert for the media until guitarist Jim Cuddy took off his ‘Feed The ,Poor’ T-shirt on the grounds it made too political a statement. And keyboardist Bobby Wiseman’was considered something of a security risk because of his affiliations with Greenpeace, who, as everyone knows, are a far greater risk to world peace than the Nicaraguan Contras. Exactly what a global conference of these proportions needs to be, productive is a few surprises, a few confrontations, and above all, serious scrutiny, not the barrage of Mulroney’s vote-buying platitudes and lies praising Reagan’s term of office, and a frankly disgusting barrage. of civic self-promotion geared toward securing Toronto the 1996 SummFr Olympics. To laud Reagan for bringing peace to the world is ridiculous, but from even a purely nationalistic perspective, the Summit was a disaster, Here was an ideal opportunity for Mulroney to press on issues like acid rain, but in the interests of keeping loving, tension-free relationship with Reagan intact, waffled away ‘on an issue that poses a very grave risk to the entire North American environment. And, ye& everybody’s committed to seeing through reform in South Africa, but Maggie says sanctions are bad. This couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that the U.K. is one of South Africa’s mijor trading partners. What are they going to do - write nasty letters to Bothaand expect him to abolish apartheid out of the goodness of his heart? The purpose of the Summit, so it seems, is to give the G-7 leaders a global forum to slap each others’ backs (sure, Thatcher’s brought aroundfhe British economy, but at the cost of creating a Third World country north of London) and spout off ideologic-ally correct, benevolent stances without the responsibility of seeing them through. The media is just as guilty of irresponsibility - you can’t believe everythiftg you read, but in thejr negligence tp report anything of significance other than what Mila’s colours are this summer, they haven’t given their readership anything to believe. The Summit was a $20 million waste of taxpayers’ money whose only concrete result was self-gratification for Toronto, Not surprising, but I just hoped we were above that sort of thing.

Submeraed To the

thinkinci

editor,

I am both worried and saddened by Canada’s new White Paper on Defence which includes plans to purchase nuclear sub: marines - worried because Canada will be re-arming in the midst of an important movement toward international disarmament, and saddened because given the Conservative majority in Parliament Mr. Beatty could actually get the weapons he’s asking for. It has alwa s been the unenviable task of t i! e defence minister to convince Canadians that our country is threatened by hostile and dangerous enemie6, even when no such threat exists, Canada’s borders have not been seriously threatened since the war of 1812, and those who have died “defending” Canada since then’ have had to leave the country to do so. The only real threat to Canada’s sovereignty in the 1980’s has been by U.S. naval forces in the Arctic, and I suggest they would bb better deterre’d by diplomatic means. The biggest threats to Canada in 1887 actually come from within our borders! There are hundreds of thousands of long term unemployed people; there are many youths who have never had the chance to hold a job; the national debt is more than $30 billian and is increasing by about 10 per cent annually; our food and environment are being rapidly poisoned by toxic chemicals: one in ten Canadians is still illiterate, many native land claims are unresolved; our schools and universities are chronically underfunded, thousands of Canadians are homeless, women ar’e still only earning 70 per cent of the wages of their male counterparts - the list of problems facing this country goes on and on.

All it would take to solve these and other problems is political will and money, but we’ll be concentrating on spending hundreds of billions of dollars on weapons instead. It makes me sick just to think about it.

1Cc parking

To the d&or, Parking at the Campus Center: it has been an unpleasant sit&tionsince 1985 when I first came to Waterloo, and most likely long before that as well. Every term finds cars parked op Ring Road in front of the CC, and security ticketing or towing them away, The arguments are clegr enough: drivers want convenient parking for short stops to take advantage of services offered at the CC, but security must keep Ring Road clear for through traffic. So, other than ticketing, which has obviously had little positive impact on the situation, why hasn’t anything constructive been done? Why couldn’t parking meters be installed in the vacant lot in front of the Physical Activities Complex? On special occasions such as convocation, the parking lot .could be closed, as is the practice for other lots on campus. This solution would provide convenient short term parking as well as revenue for the university. This money could go directly into the university budget rather than into a scholarship fund as collected fines do. It is time for innovative and creative solutions to problems on campus rather than complacency and indifference.

TO YOUR HEALTH The kissing. disease ‘Mononucleosis, or “mono” is a viral disease that is quite common among students. Many cases aret slight, or even run their course undetected, but it is possible to have a severe case, where you become debilitated for a long pexiod of time;. Mononucleosis has been called the “kissing disease,” since it is possible to contract the virus . through kissing. It is also possible to contract mono by drinking from the same glass as an infected person. Direct contact such as handshake! can aleo spread the. virus, Probably the most common method of transmission is through coughing or sneezing. It is not easily transmitted, and it is rare that even roommates transmit the virus among themselves. The main symptoms of mbno are as follows: fatigue: a persistent with extra sleep

“tired

all over”

feeling,

even

son throat: present

in about half the cases, and is worse when swallowing fever: comes and goes, and is sometimes accompanied by a shaky feeling

irritability difficulty concentrating enlarged glandr: in the neck and armpits skin rash: similar to measles, and found in about ten per cent

of sufferers tint to skin)

jaundice: [yellow

rare occurrence

With any combination of these symptoms, see your doctor, After a physical examination of your tonsils, neck and armpits for enlargement of glands, he will order lab tests to confirm the disease and rule out any other condition. A complete blood count may show an increased number of lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) which are abnormal in shape. A Monospot test and a Heterophile Antibody test are done, which test for positive antibodies in most cases of infectious mononucleosis. Treat.ment for mono depends on the severity of your illness+ It is important not to engage in heavy physical activity or exercise because of the risk of rupture to the spleen. If you have a mild case of mono, you may just require limited activity and an increase in your hours of sleep.

uuprre

With severe cases, stopping all activities is r&commended, and using Tylenol for fever and gargling for a sore throat are suggested. Never use aspirin with mononucleosis. The acetylsalicylic acid in aspirin has been associatied with Reye’s rryndrome, an often fatal disease involving the brain, liver and kidneys. The doctor will only prescribe antibiotics if you have a bacterial throat infection along with the mono. Many physicians recommend abstinence from drinking for persons with mono. Since alcohol can affect the liver and the s leen, it may preci itate even more problems if.t fi e meno has al.rea f y caused enlargement of these or$ans. For examle, if your mono is a fairly serious case and your iver has become enlarged with the disease, the consumption of alcohol could lead to *he development of hepatitis. In short, you should ask your doctor about whether or not you should drink while you have mono. In most cases, the doctor will ask you to have a monospot test about every two weeks to make an accurate judgement with respect to your body’s antibody production until he can safely condone your drinking. Some people may be carriers of mono and not even have any symptoms and yet could pass on the virus. The incubation period of the disease is about six weeks,, but it is not known how lung an individual may transmit the disease. Recovery from mono is usually shorter than you think. A person with mono can gradually resume his activities shortly after his symptoms disappear+ Recurrence is rare.

Refugees aixorr lmodated

by Mary Sehl

Out of a small s&committee of the Kitchener-Waterloo Refugee Coordinating Committee has sprung a soon-to-beconstructed housing cooperative which will serve the needs of new and longterm Canadians alike. Sand Hills Cooperative Homes, a 67unit housing co-op funded by the Ontario Ministry of Housing, is expected to begin construction later this summer at a Chandler Drive site in Kitchener, The Housing Working Group was formed in late 1985 to investigate the housing needs of refugees in the K-W area. It included new Canadians and service providers to immigrants and refugees. It-was chaired by a Master’s student in the Social-Community Psychology program at Wilfrid Laurier University. The group learned refugees often live in inadequate, overcrowded housing situations, The current housing crisis makes it difficult for newcomers to Canada

Government-sponsored refugees are temporarily housed in the Baron’s Motel on Victoria Road North which is inconveniently located for refugees who take English-as-a-Second-Language courses

at the Waterloo campus of Conestoga College, about a one hour bus ride away. It is also a very expensive form of housing. The motel does not have cooking facilities, forcing newly arrived refugees to eat at neighbouring fast-food outlets. This is especially a problem for Southeast Asians who are not accustomed to Canadian food and often suffer digestive problems as a result. The. motel accommodation means some large families must leave children alone in motel rooms.

Alternative ,accommodation for newly arrived refugees in a house owned by the K-W House Church Committee, an- ecumenical group, cannot serve all government-sponsored refugees arriving in the K-W area. In the summer of 1986, the Housing Working Group submitted a proposal to the provincial Ministry of Housing for a family housing cooperative which would include ten units of transitional housing to replace accommodation5 at the Baron’s Motel. The Housing Working Group was dissolved and a founding board of directors was formed. The group’s proposal was initially rejected, but received preliminary approval for a $5.2 million project in the summer of 1987, The co-op’s board of directors in- ’

eludes long-term Canadians and repre_ sentatives of the more,recently arrived Hmong (8 people originating from the mountains of Laos), Polish, and Salvadoran communit$s. A list of prospective Co~op members includes immigrants and rXefugees.from Eastern Europe, Central America, and Southeast Asia, as well as long-term Canadians. Since its origin as the Housing Working Group, inembers have considered it essential to involve new Canadians in planning and decision making. The board of directbrs is currently working with Jubilee Consultants of Hamilton, a non-profit development group, to complete the final pre-construction proposal. The*completed project is expected to include 67 two, three, and four-bedroom townhouse units, ’ Ten of which will be rented to the Canada Employment Centre as transitional housing for newly arrived governmentsponsored refugees. Among the other 57 units, many will have rents adjusted to income levels. Families will remain in the transitional units for a maximum of six months. It is hoped these units will reduce the stress associated with the accommodations presently available at the motel and will reduce anxiety and increase the confidence of new Canadi-

ans through exposure to permanent coop members who themselves arrived in Canada as refugees. In addition, the coop setting will increase opportunities to use English. The co-op’s direct&s hope to foster a cooperative multicultural corhmunity. They welcome applications from people interested in living in such a setting. Requests for applications can be sent to Sand Hills Cooperative Homes, care of Jubilee Consultant Services, 104-350 King St. E., Hamilton, Ontario, L8N 3Y3.

The WPIRG Summer Workgroup is coordinating an educational event focussing on the plisht of the refugees in Canada. Refugees in Canada - Wrapped in Red Tape will be held July 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Engineering Lecture 204. Presentations will be given by Colin McAdam from The Jesuit Centre in Toronto on Canadian Immigration Bills; Marco Escoto and Patti Polfuss will talk about Marco’s recent struggle to remain in Canada, and Anna Czesnik, Refugee Host Program will discuss reasons who new Canadians are an asset to community.

Lubricating this writing process was a trend that most declarations came as absolutely no surprise to anyone: whatever else the summit was, it was not groundbreaking. The main problem with some of the summit coverage is that the economic and political issues were written about in a contextual vacuum; specifically, trade with and debt of the developing nations, the war against drugs and the declaration on East-West relations were all covered with an alarming degree of ignorance, if not outright hypocrisy. Since it is felt that middle-income debtors such as Brazil have the potential, with carefully fostered growth, to be

by John Zachariah Imprint correspondent at the Toronto Economic Summit It was sometime Monday afternoon, as I dragged my fatigue ridden body from Toronto’s Union Station .toward the Metro Convention Centre in anticipation of banging out some more hard-hitting summit coverage, that I met a young fellow [my age) from Montreal, a McGill student. This surprised me, since there seemed to be a conspicuous absence of student journalists lurking around the media centre. My new acquaintance was quite impressed with the preparations that had been made for the media, as I was, and then described to me a story he

Declarations planned to write regarding the security arrangements. Then I asked him what he thought about the issues. I’m not really interested in the issues. I went slack jawed for a bit while he explained why, and then I was left alone, riding the escalator up to the expansive print journalism area. As I seated myself at the typewriter, I considered the iseues at this summit: international debt, agricultural trade and issues of protectionism, etc. Reporting them was easy; all one had to do was collect the press releases together and send out a story. Most of the stories you read about the summit were written in this way; just direct reporting of the press releases in which the reporters simply parroted what the leaders, or

While this may be true, no-one has bothered to consider the rampant structural injustice in many Central and South American countries which keeps the balance of their citizens from benefitting in any sort of growth. Nor did anyone point out it has been the greed and insensitivity of U.S. business and government which is largely to blame for the oppressive conditions in middle income debtor nations such as Brazil.

believed jailed for the non-violent exercise of their rights. Amnesty International seeks the release of all prisoners of conscience, fair and prompt trials for political prisoners and an end to torture and executions wtirldwide. ‘Behind each statistic is a tale of human anguish and cruelty,” the Amnesty report said. “All of it is appalling and unjust. Much of it breaks international law. In the 40th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, such abuses should be only ghosts from the past.”

The Columbi$ Lake townhouses have been a success for those who manage to get the low rents available by subletting in the summer. However, some degree of criticism has been voiced over student housing units that have been leased out. Each townhouse is leased for one year beginning in the Fall term. The twelve month lease “was the only way we could get the university to back the project,” Federation VP Wendy Rinella said. The Columbia Lake units were never conceived to be another student village but merely to be nearby housing for students whereby the university is the landowner. In this respect, they have been more than guccessfulThe project was a response to a shortage of housing in the community. Originally, there were plans to have 400 units rather than the hundred that now stand. Plans for a continuance of the project are 6n hold due to a softening in the demand. The Housing problem in K-W has been addressed by* the 100 units at the Columbia townhouses, the Philip Street Co-op apartments and changes to the city of Waterloo zoning laws. At present there are about 90 units occupied; although, the number of occupants in each house is often not the intended four. The people who were lucky enough to sublet have the advantage of a surplus market. The average price to sublet is in the neighbourhood of $180 for the Summer term, There have been rumours of summer rents pegged at $150 and even $80. These prices are neither worse, nor better than any other off-campus housing opportunity. The summer market for& housing completely favours the subletting student. Several years ago the Federation of students forced the ending of pro-rated rents. The pro-rating of rents is making a years worth of payments payable within the first eight months of the school term. The scheme forced students to pay the same amount in just eight payments instead of twelve.

For example, the falcons could be stranded on the ground, or fly into chimneys. Peregrine falcons have an interesting history. These falcons, called “duck hawks” in North America, are the fastest birds and are known to dive at over 140 kilometres per hour. They feed on small birds and rodents. They summer in locations ranging from the Arctic regions to Mexico and Africa. Winter is spent in areas bordering from southern Canada to the northern parts of South America and the West Indies, The birds of prey neat in cliffs, on the ground, and on ledges, even in urban areas such as the famous Sun Life building in Montreal.

Five peregrine falcons are to be released at the beginning of July from the roof of a large campus building. The Antrum sub species currently numbers only 100 pairs in North America. Because of the project at UW, the falcons will be re-introduced to Southern Ontario. Ours is not the first release. In 1973, Dr. Tom Cade, professor of ornithology at Cornell University, successfully produced peregrine ftilcona in captivity. The birds were re-introduced in other states, as well. A Canadian program was set up by the Canadian Wildlife Service. Five chicks will also be released at Guelph University and at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Last year some falcons were released in the Niagara Penninsula. A cage that can not be opened from the front is under construction at Waterloo to house the birds for their stay. The bird’s temporary home has a “hack box” from which the birds may be observed candidly through panels of one-way glass. Approximately 120 peregrines are being bred in Wainwright, Alberta. The birds are fed blender food until they are able to break up their own food. At this stage, they do not need much care, and when they are 30 days old, they will be flown to Ontario and Nova Scotia. The falcons will be caged for seven to ten days and will be fed feathered quail. After this, they will be released and fly in the area for about six weeks learning to hunt, until they are ready to migrate south. On; UW student and one

More heat and less light Imprint= Even though it’s not under your jurisdicti&, can you not provide leadership on this issue? McLena: I’m open to suggestions as to where and how I can be helpful without causing more heat and less light. One problem is that most people in this city are never on campus. The design of the campus, UW in particular, is very intimidating for many. Community meetings are never held on campus because no one can find the location and parking is so difficult. Yes, the university is a great resource, the facuity livein the community and they tend to have their roots there.

Im rint: What can be done to he Pp the situation of underfunding in the province’s universitie’s? McLean: The current government inherited a situation from the Liberals which has the provincial governments giving the final authority on how education money is spent, This is the main problem with underfunding and until the provincial governments agree to reopen discussion on the issue we are powerless to change it. We can’t reopen discussion unilaterally. Imprint: Why can’t education payments be geared as the health transfer payments are? (Federal money is transferred to the provinces for health care and education. Unlike the university transfer payments, the federal government can influence the spending of the health care money by withholding funds when they feel they are improperly spent, as in the case of extrabilling. )’ McLean: &cause at the time the current agreement was made the structure-was that the provinces be quite free: Many of the provinces predicted that these very problems would arise but they were not listened to,

Also the phasing-in period will cushion the blow for those hardest hit.

When the superpowers weren’t speaking we sent parliamentary delegations to Washington. When they wouldn’t hear them, we sent them to middle powers, and got middle power leaders to come together in what is known now as the middle power peace initiative. We are now working on aglobal security plan. We are trying to disarm new security measures+ using UN police force and Canada’s technology and verification capabilities.

Canada’s future?

Imprint: What is your vision for Canada’s future, based on trends you see emerging now? McLean: We have to ask ourselves do we want to step into the next century or do we want to move back? We’ve got a government that’s addressing the trade issue, tax reform and looking at social developments. But we are moving into the future and with that there is, a fair measure of questioning and stress. Internationally Canada has an unique opportunity. We have a leadership role in the Commonwealth, a leadership role in the United Nations, and we’re one of the seven economic powers of the world. We play a strategic role and we give a lot of leadership.

Who owns \UW buildings? by Ldie Perrault Imprint staff How much do students contribute to the funding and administration of University of Waterloo buildings? Newer buildings are paid for quite differently than the older structures. In contrast to Federation Hall, completed in 1984 at a cost of $1+683,000 and Columbia Icefield completed in 1983 at $1,588$00 which’are being paid for entirely by students, the Campus Centre received only $30+650.00 from students to help cover its $1,97&000 cost in 1968. This amount was accumulated after a $10.00 Student Union Building Fee was levied in 1960. Until five years ago, the provincial government Lwould pay for university buildings through grants. Now, the government will provide two-thirds of the money, and university administrations must obtain one-third through donations and fundraising. The Village residences’ rent is currently paying off the large mortgage and a small portion of the principal. One massive funding project launched in 1982 was the Watfund. As a nation-wide targeted campaign for UW’s development, the fund included a provincial government grant and contributions from corporations, foundations, students, alumni, faculty and staff, and friends of the university. The original goal of $21 million was exceeded and $88 million in total was received by June, 1986, almost oneyear ahead of schedule.

The Watfund provided essential money for such projects as the Sidney Martin Blair Laboratory, the online library catalogue system, and the Academic Development Fund. This fund supports the computer graphics lab+ the MAPLE project for symbolic computation+ the Writer-in-Residence program, and the Gerontology program among others. University of Waterloo buildings are run in a variety of ways+ with the Campus Centre in particular having a tiolorful administration history. The athletics department opcrates Columbia Icefield, with recommendations from an a&isory board partially composed of students. When the C.C. was built, a Provost’s Advisory Committee on the Campus Centre (PACCC) was set up to recommend and advise the Director of the Campus Centre. On August If&, 1968, because of student-administration tension over control of the building, students removed the Director’s furniture from ‘his office and placed it in the Great Hall. At this time, said one member of the PACE, there was ,so much “face” involved with the PACCC that conciliation was often rejected in meetings “because it might be construed as surrender.” On October 21, 1968 students staged a sleep-in in the Great m Hall which created 24hour operation, a plan that students on the PACCC had been requesting. At this time, recommendations were made for a 16 member Board of which nine ,ivould be

appointed by the Federation of Students. It would be composed of a majority of students+ and broad representation from faculty, staff, and administration, with an elected chairman. The Campus Centre Board was cretited in 196% The first chairman resigned after one year of’ “studied hostility+’ on the “part of the administration,” he said, Also, in 1970, the Federation of Students replaced all nine student members on the grounds that the CCB was not conducting the Campus Centre according to the wishes of the majority of stu-

dents, On December 2 of that year, there was a Special Campus Centre Study Committee established to review and recommend changes to the policy, operation, and administration of the CamDUS Centre. Pat Robertson, Vicegresident of University Services states “it was possible - and indeed it happened - for students and/or campus centre staff to get themselves on the Board and run things to their satisfaction,” In 1982, a new system of membership was chosen, ,Eight un&graduate students, one from

every faculty and elected in March each year, would work with the Dean of Students, the President of the Federation of Students+ the Campus Centre manager, one representative elected from the employees of ILrneCampus Centre, and the President of the Graduate Student Association+ and a secretary, The new board, says Pat Robertson, “has fun’ctioned effectively for the benefit of all the users of the Campus Centre’”

as their

An unpretentious guy, he usually appears in a shirt with the

sleeves rolled up, jeans and boots, looking like he hasn’t decided whether to grow a beard or not, “As you can see, I don’t spend thousands of dollars on clothes or hairstyles,” he told me. Their line-up hasn’t changed much since they got together, except for the recent addition of Ingrid (sorry guys - I didn’t get her last name) on saxophone and backup vocals in place of Josee Blondin. Sylvie Daviau, the other backup singer, has a powerful

voice which unfortunately

was

sometimes lost at the back of the stage, At the Sunday night show, when Jean-Marc’s voice started to go, Sylvie’s made up for it. Many of The Box’s songs, especially Closer Together, focus on dreams. “From early childhood...dreams have been an extraordinary part of my life,” Jean-Marc says. For him, rock is meant to be

done in English. He has done some recording in Fretich, but feels it doesn’t sound as natural

Stratford production by Leslie Perrnult Imprint staff T.S. Eliot wrote the words his murderous knights in Mard8r in the Cdmdrd. The words were meant to “shock the audience out of their complacency.” The entire play is a powerful extension of this aapir#on. The verseidrti is at times terrifying. It is baslad on the actual LiUing, of Archbishop Themas BeckeP’. $6 1170 at the cathedral in Canterbury, England. The,tension is found primarily in Be&et’s own psychological trauma, not in his death. . The plsy opens with Becket’s return to England after seven years of exile; much to the diemay of Henry II. Because of his refusal to maintain the positions siof chancellor and archbisho multaneously, the king had ! anished Becket. Since his departure, as the poor women of Canterbury lament, his people had been ‘living, and partly living.” They know with his return there will be temporary comfort for them, but also bloodshed, as the archbishop has rebelled against the king. In typical cutting ver8e, Eliot’s chorus tells of “a fear not of one but of many, of a fear we cannot know, our brains unskinned like the skin of an onion.”

The chorus of poor women provides the first haunting undertones of the play. They speak of danger, of evil in the wind. The excellent presentation of these and other characters, au& as the four tempters that confront Be&et, create constant tenrrion. A fervent religious atmosphere smtinds Eliot’s play, crested by the poor women, the priests, and tionks, and the eno~moua cruciflxthat descends and looms over the stage. Nicholas Pe-1 is convincing as the devout archbishog The rapid, inter&a e among the chorus in their Tam enting; the priests iti their frenzied worry; and the knights in their threat8 to kill is aa impressive as Eliot’s verse. When the knights address the audience in a humorous attempt to tix lain their actions, they are eas’ lr y able to switch to a comic mod Throughout the work, the chorus acts as a frightening foreshadowing of danger. Because the evil8 of striving for political power and greed at any cost still exist today, the lay is even more thought-Provo L ’ The archbishop himself nemiy falls victim to the temptations of his conscience.

Bohos party at the Huether byCh+WOdsit~ Imprint .+tmff With this burg’s absence of opium dens, speakeasies, and beatnick coffeehouses, K-W, would-be Bohemians have been largely fon;ed to spend their evenings gawking around Fed Hall or watching Letterman, unable to vent that creative impulse or soak up some alternative cul-

ture.

Enter that benevolent, hosershirt-clad behemoth, Tim Ratine, former singer-guitarist of The Waiting Room among others, to take things into his own hands, organizing nights of easy-on-the-ears music qd poetry upstairs at Huether (Kent) Hotel. Democracy of entertainment in action, with three local (mostly) solo musicians and a handful of dabblers in the written word getting a chance to air their two cents’ worth. Now, fm not going to pretend I know the first thing about poetry, so I’ll just refrain from any intensive zritique of the young wordsmiths, except to ask whether I’m asking too much if I want to go to a reading of some description and not hear the word “death” hissed out every other line accompanied by the gnashing of teeth and BO on. Sure, mortality angst is probably the root of most artistic expression, but that can’t be the only thing to write about. _ A couple of notable exceptions: Chris Coughlan, probably the most entertaining and least affected of the readers, whose Bud Attitude, a quickly dashed off sneer at guys who pay table dancers five bucks to dance in front of them for three minutes, was a hoot; and Scott Welkin, whose animated and overly energetic style reminded me of William S. Burroughs’ right hand man, John Giorno. More consistently entertaining was the musical fare offered, beginning with by Jalian Fauth who played a cool set of well-re-ceived blues. Too bad we only caught the end of it. The boy-and-his-guitar theme continued with Uw dude Bill &unson, playing about a half-

dozen strong originals in a folky pop vein, and, to up his cool quotient immeasurably, a more than acceptable version of fIREHOSE’s Sometimes [Almost Always). Finishing off by dueting with Tim Racine on the Andrew Cash favourite, Time And Place, was the perfect touch. Tim played too - Waiting Room smash hits like Factory and Kiss The Ground as well as number of solid, recently enned tunes - but we,ve given t Iii is guy so muchI exposure in the past few months you’re just going to have

to see him for yourself now. Frankly, though, the entertainment was almost incidental to the “hanging-out” aspect of , the evening, a buzz of conversation always murking up the voices, guitars, and appreciative applause. But who says you can? create your own entertainment? The next goings-on at The Huether will be Saturday, July 9, with Scott B. Sympathy [members of Groovy Religio’n, Change Of Heart, and A Neon Rome) and Tim Racine (yep, him again] and Scott Welkin doing the prelbinaries.

delivers “head damage I funk” with superb musicianship, a barrage of electronic effects and Adrian Sherwood’s live dub mixing board wizardry. The result is a fascinating, constantly changing tapestry of sound where melody is woven in and out of the constant presence of the drums. The base upon which the show revolves is the rhythm section of Sugarhill records refugees Doug Wimbish on bass, Keith Leblanc on drums and Skip McQoxral-d on guitar. Keith Leblanc, in tandem with the drum machine which Adrian Sherwood runs through the soundboard, lays down such an intense barrage of drumming Wimbish is free to spend much of his time playingguitar-like

The closer you moved toward the stage, the more difficult breathing became as the massive bass noise tried to squeeze the breath out of you. Unlike heavy metal which noisily operates in the treble range, Tackhead have seized control of the more bodily volume of the drums -- guitars just hurt your ears - plug them in and the noise is gone - drums are more pervasive, as the only way to escape their pulse is to leave the hall.

Despite the brevity of his appearance, the collage of his material such as Reality, and Half Cut for Confidence lifted the show to another level of intensity. Even after he left the stage, Wimbish,

More than that though, they managed to mix force with subtlety, using spine-crushing volume as a means to a musical and philosophical end.

It’s hard to tell, The lead vocalist almost gets lost in the mix at times, and even when you can understand what he’s saying, you can’t figure out what he means.

f first heard this album when I WBI screwing around in one of the studios at CKMS. I liked it then, I love it now. .It’s ,kind of hard to describe what these guys sound like.

you

want to talk contrariness, how about a total mockup of Led Zeppelin’s pseudo-mysticism at a time when it’s cool for alternative heads to admit that yeah, they always secretly dug that bloated has-been, Jimmy Page is full of pop songs which I could actually see going down well at a frat party if you told everyone it was CCR. But their songs are eaten away from the inside out. The 16 rpm groans give themselves a good squeeze in the crotch and, without warning, you’ve iot a baby’s voice saying rude. things. Pastoral acoustic guitars get under a full moon and turn into distortion-crazed, many-headed beasts, and the surprisingly catchy hooks never exactly disappear, but you’ll have to muck through a lot of pond scum to

dredge them up again. Thus it is that you catch fleeting glimpses of Telegram Sam, The Meat Puppets’ brand of sunbaked, off-kilter tunefulness, and Neil Young-style acoustic folk spiralling inward upon themselves to a messy collapse. You even have the dreaded piegressive rock epic, the saga of Johnny Smoke Morricone rampant, rumbling twangs, drums, and head Butt Gibby Hayes playing an auctioneerturned-revival-meetingevangelist-turned-weeklyWorld-News -writer preaching to a frenzied horde of believers, coalesce into unparalleled in-

spired weirdness. If they had wanted, The Buttholes could have made one of the best hum-along records of the year - they have it in them. After all, they do a straight version of REM’s The One I Love in their encores after slaughtering American Woman. But they’d prefer $0 offend all those brain dead Erica Ehm groupies and more power to them, I say. If the cover picture, looking Iike an unfortunate genetic experiment on a goldfish, doesn’t scare you off, this one will really have your parents (friends, business associates, etc.] wondering why the hell you play it so much.

I guess you could call NoMeansNo a hardcore band. They play hard and fast, but unlike so many other hardcore bands they fail to be pigeon holed. Only Dead Souls falls into the “mindless” category.

The Day Everything Became Nothing combines potverful sptirts of guitar with dynamic drumming, as lead vocalist Rob Wright sings about Western life: “the day every’thing became nothing, you couldn’t put your finger on what had gone wrong just a lot of grief in people’s faces, in their eyes,.his was no apocalypse, there were no miracles at the T-Eleven”. Even better is Brother Rat/What SIayde Says with Rob and John Wright talking back to one another. What begins with we’ll knock buck a few and talk about life ends with Q pat on the back, a knife in the back. Brother Rat fuses with What Slayde Says and the two brothers/yin yang symbolism continues, ending , with a traditional prayer, The beauty of this album is its diversity. NoMeansNo never / falls into a rut, The originality of the songs bath lyrically and musically, along with tons of intensity elevates this band way above other hardcore or aiterna, tive groups. I’d recommend giving this album to all those happy people out there who somehow think their lives are fulfilling and wonderful. [I’m talking about some of those materialistic co-op yuppie deadheads]. Put this album on their turntable, and watch what happens when they wake up‘ and realize they’re really superficial fools. As an added bonus, you can take these people to the Bombshelter to hear the band live in late July.

Cave has been something of a character lately; after a hush following his milestone The Firstborn Is Dead,,rumours that his energies we+re to be focused on a book soon began circulating. An album of covers followed, corroborating suspicions and the excitement of his more literate fans. But then, no more thansix months later, another album oforiginal songs was spat out, and Your Funeral, My Trial became Cave’s second artistic milestone. Perhaps 1988 is to be the year of the dead; the Nephilim are charging full speed ahead; the Sisters promise another LP by September; a Joy Division collection is about to come crashing over our heads; and yes, Nick Cave finally releases a book of

Another from ihe school of justified arrogance, Cave whitewashes the world and all it has to offer with a chorus that becomes a chant that becomes a trance. Every indoctrination culminates with the revelation that Cave “is not afraid to die.” Drumstick-struck basslines build and build the path to the salvation of The Mercy Seat. Oh yes, Cave was recently in a German film Wings of Desire, in which he performs an early tune, From Her To Eternity. The title track from his/ debut album, Cave intensifies it as if to annouqce his reawakening. The film veision of From Her To Eternity can be found on The Mercy Seat CD single.

Pulling strings to talk with Meat Puppets by Wonny he Imprint gaff I followed * concert promoter Gary Courmier through the back lab rinths of Toronto’s RPM clu i with a feeling I wasn’t in for such an easy time that Tuesday night. I was moment8 away from interviewing the Meat Puppets and was fully expecting-to find this Arizona trio sitting smugly ‘behind an unscalable wall of arrogance - after all, they had their very own cult following, the Meatheads, who were ever bit as religiously devout as tK ose grateful deadheads, and I had heard about vocalist-guitarist Curt Kirkwood’s unpredictable temper and sarcasm, Gary must have read &ty mind. “They’re s good bunch of guys,” he confided with a smile, but I wondered, if he was speaking with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Outside the Meat Puppets’ dressing room, nine hundred collective pounds of bearded security stopped their poker game to give me the once-over... any one of these tattooed brutes could have made the average Hell’s Angel biker look-like an anemic Pee Wee Herman. “It’s okay, guys,” Gary said, as he opened the dreaaing room door, quickly made the intros, and then disappeared - leaving me standing amidst the infamous Meat Puppets and some assorted Meatheads who were busy preparing for the show that night. “Hey dude, have a beer. Here, let me move this guitar so you can sit down. So you’re from Kitchener? Shit, we just ate ‘in a MacDonald’s there just this afternoon!“ It was Curt Kirkwood; and golly... he was friendlier than +my mom, A few beers, a free T-shirt, and lots of small talk later, I came to the conclusion that *Curt’s cyni-

cal temper was i myth and that the Meat Puppets were indeed a good bunch of guys. Drummer Derrick Bostrom and I eventually decided to do the interview in a quiet corner of the dressing room as guitarist Curt and bassist Cris did some pre-concert preparations. _

that Curt actually hanged himself in Athens, Georgia while doing a guitar solo? Derrick: Are. you sure? Maybe you’re thinking of Alice Cooper. Hey Curt! Did you hang yourself when we played in Athens? Crut= Yeah! Everyone flipped out

Imprint: Let’s talk about your live shows, You guys go crazy up on stage whereas you’re pretty laid back on vinyl. Listenin to your records and seeing you f ive is almost like experiencing two completely different bands. Derrick: Yeah, that’s a good way of putting it. We’re a lot more raw and energetic on stage and it’s really hard to capture that in the studio where it’s so controlled. We look for a sort of s mbiosia with the crowd and I eed off their energy. We always get very energetic crowds at our shows which allows us to go into our frenzies. Being in the studio is like wo_rk, whereas being on stage is like a catharsis.

“Being on stage is like a catharsis” Ixnpdnt: So which aspect of your music would you consider the definitive Meat - Puppets, on stage or in the studio? Dsrrick~. I would say on stage, because it’s a setting where we can give our entire musical history in one or two hours, and also give each song our most current interpretation. In the studio, we’re only working on a single album, and we don’t have a crowd that’a responding to it as we’re playing it. It’s a cycle on stage., - the crazier we get thecrazier the crowd gets, and we in turn get crazier because of that... It’s both fascinating and frightening to watch how this frenzy can build. Imprint: What are some of the crazier things you guys have done in your shows? Is it true

because they thought I was trying to kill myself, man! Derrick: Well, I -do remember once Curt and Cris put their belts together at the back and did a spinning “whirling dirvish” guitar- solo! Sometimes Cris will spit into the air and catch it in his mouth. He ‘also used to dive off the stage with his guitar until people started getting hurt.

“We’ve made errurg that will turn into 8n amazing 10 minute jam* Imprint: So does that mean that your live interpretation of your recorded music is largely impro-

We’ve made errors that we’ve tried to cwer up that will turn into an amazing ten minute jam. We depend a lot upon improvisation... Curt says he’s “searching for the unknown,” so that’s the formula that we adhere to 6n stage - to explore the unknown. He also likes to explore the unknown

I

then we’ve all grown musically, put more care and maybe less spontaneity into our recbrdings. Curt has develo ed some great guitar concepts Prom Jerry Garcia and Les Paul, and I think that the conflict that you’re talking about is this: should we be evolved, mature musicians and think about songwriting and arrangements as we’ve been doing on our more laid-back recent albums. Or, should we turn up all the knobs and overdrive it, and kick some QSS like in the old days? That’s what’s good about being independent, we can still record another album of the raw stuff if we ever want to. But that conf lit t is also part ially resolved by our live shows where we can let loose as much as we want, you know, with lots of feedback and with the Rockman and the Marshall set on “distort”, Imprint: Well, let’s talk about distortion, it’s been a pretty consistent element of your music. Does Curt still use his Morley Flanger as a wah-wah? Dad& Yeah, but his favourite toy is a Chandler Tube Driver - a great distortion box. Distortion is definitely an important part of our sound, especially live. The Morley as a wah-wah gives a really fuzzed-out berserk sound that records with pure balls in the studio. Cris likes to keep the, bass very upfront, and Curt also keeps the Marshall’s bass on his guitar all the way u , with the mid and treble camp Petely off. Ixbprint: I guess it’s necessary with a three-piece band to keep the guitar on bottom end. Especially to get all that fuzz, Deiriclr: Exactly. If it’s high-end we end up sounding too “garage.” Curt loves fuzz and really all the great fuzz guitawhen he writes his lyrics - admires rists like Robert Fripp who had they’re very dreamlike and moo- some amazing low-end weirdd-evoking.

Imprint butchers interview with Pat Fish! by John ffymers imprint rtdf

.

The Jazz Butcher (Pat Fish) and his Conspiracy (the JBC) played in Toronto on June 6. ’ After the show, I was able to corner him and ask him about the more important things in life, such as his affiliation with Big Time Records. The English music press has often quoted Fish speaking of Big Time in a negative manner. So, the question came up... Fish answered, “They were going to give us tour support money and they wanted us to do what Max (Eider - former JBC guitarist) did. They wanted me to do world wide gigs, opening in Euro e, and it was going to be won B erful - and stop taking pictures of me making hippy signs.” Imprint photographer Trevor Blair was indeed waiting for . Fish to do stu id things before snapping the s r-lutter.

“Stop taking pictures” Fish continued, “Yes, so if we had have done the tour, we would have been committed to them in terms of thousands of dollars. And, well, you’ve seen what a marvelous job they’ve done of marketing Max’s album. Anybody ever seen one?” I had. It Has To Be You is a song from it, and this very same song first emerged as a track on the Jazz Butcher’s giveaway Conspiracy lp that was distributed along with Distressed Gentl8fQk

“Alex (Green - part time JBC member who toured France with Fish and contributed some sax to Fiebcothsque) was very nasty about not doing the saxophone on that song.” In his best whiny voice, Fish

“What you got imitates Alex: Louis doing the sax solo for? Then Fish imitates Max: “You were in Europe with Pat at the time. You couldn’t have played on it.” “But, you know, they have really mucked him (Max) about. His album was finished and ready in February 1987. It came out in, what, October 18871 Nobody really knows because no one knew about it until six weeks after it came out. These people were really stiff. He could have just come in - there was no (new) JBC album out - he could have said, here I am and this is what I-am going to do. That was the idea for him. Whew. And there but for the grace of God we go. If the Americans had let us in (an allusion to his inability to get into the States, cancelling his last tour), we would have been stuck with Big Time‘ “You’re not gonna believe me when I tell youthis, but Max was forced to get a real job+ He is working in. an office. We don’t know if the office is going to go bankrupt first or if Max is going to die. Imagine me in an office: I can’t add up and take away. I worked in a bar for three days and I couldn’t do the math so thev threw me’out.”

Parting with Glass Records not amicable Glass Records, the JBC’s first (and until last year year, his only] label, concentrated on singles. So, JBC fans were .graced with a big collection of singles singles that, primarily, were not found on his studio albums. This all changed when he switched to Creation Records. The parting with Glass was not very amicable, and the Jazz Butcher regards it as one of the lowest points of his life. But one

Pat Fish and record company pal. night, Alan McGhee [owner of &cords to dance to were not very satisfactory. But not all;-we liked Creation records] convinced Fish to join his label. In Fish’s words: “That’s what I am doing here.” ’ With the switch of labels in mind, I asked him if he had ever planned tu go back to releasing singles. “We’ve made a single; it’s an attempt to get played in discotheques. In Europe, we like to go to discotheques after shows to get drunk and dance. I know it sounds unlikely, the idea of us dancing. I’m terrible. I run into people and spill over their beers and cry Sorry, I’m English. I’ve used that line on taxi drivers before.” “SO last time we found that the

Movie collector Reg Hartt returned to Waterloo this past Saturday with The Vampire FiIm Festivdl.

I don’t know about you, but I can remember sitting up late Saturday nights to watch old Christopher Lee Dracula movies and having the bejeezus scared out of me. But then again, I also thought that Abbott And Costello Meet The Werewolf was pretty scary, Fear-ridden nostalgia was somewhat aided by the hard-sell marketing approach of the programme, what with stern warnings that some films were definitely not for the squeam’ish and having printed on the poster No

fluence of drugs will be admitted. They had to say that? I was primed for an evening of horror. Oh well. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed myself. The first film, director Carl Dreyer’s Vampyr; Or The Strange Case Of David Grey was fascinating on several levels. Reg Hartt introduced the film by describing it as having the ambiguity of a dream. He was && ,

upon the eleventh or twelfth viewing, he became convinced of the brilliance of Dreyer’s work. Not having the advantage of multiple viewings, I was still stuck on the logical incoherence stage. Baron Nicholas De Gunzberg, who played David Grey, seemed in the same boat as he drifted through the film, mouth agape, wearing a permanent expression of dazed incomprehension. Part of the attraction of the evening was the chance to see the infamous Reg Hartt. I’d heard tales about his last appearance at the Princess and was interested to catch him live, so to speak, He introduced each film with a brief chat that was more anecdotal than informative but was certainly not controversial. I did manage to talk to him during part of the evening and found his views often surprising. He no longer attends screenings of current films, as he feels they only have four themes, and he doesn’t have time for reruns. It’s too bad he didn’t tell me those themes since he would then save me a lot of money. Instead, Hartt prefers rereading ancient Chinese literature (the I Chin& and Tzun Hsu’s Art of War are favourites]. He derides most current films as “comic book” and as far as the big budget stuff goes, I can’t help

but agree, His views may be a bit fanatical and he’s certainly direct, but I that’s probably where his repu- ‘. tation arises. Comparing Spielberg and clone movies to the many quality productions coming out of the independent and foreign studios, while admitting that he never actually goes to see these films is somewhat hard to digest. Unfortunately for Hartt, single-mindedness and a tendency toward blunt honesty have resulted in unfavourable reviews y from people not used to such character traits. Oh well, one can’ only hope that he’ll continue to ignore such criticisms and return with another of his popularly attended attractions.

Funny, but there was a moinent tonight that I was so paranoid that I thought that I might bash somebody with a microphone stand.” As it turned out, the only thing that bashed the fans was the atrocious sound system, and the personable Mr. Fish bade farewell and‘ faded into the salty Harbourfront mist.

FILM NOTES: This will be my last article for the summer. I’m going to go to Quebec this weekend and not speak English for six weeks. Or else. Anyway, things wind down early in the summer term, and the alternatives to expensive outings at Garth “Cineplex” Drabinsky’s shrines are drying up q&kly. But keep up your spirits. Fed Flicks promise a few mare worthwhile films this month ahd Cinema Gratis will chug along until July 27. If you’ll be spending time in Toronto later this month Harbourfront, has a retrospective of Spanish film maker Luis Buairel from July 4 to the end of the month. (This is not Free Screen.) Get more info in NOW, magazine. If you want guidance concerning films after the July ;4, you can always head over to the Turnkey desk and check their various schedules where the Fed Phone used to be. They’re pretty good about keeping all the lists up. They also have a Video Movie Guide thatis pretty exhaustive and has saved my ass several times already. Should I continue this in the Fall, things will get very busy. Not only will there be the Gorge and Princess repertorycinemas to check out, but the Book&elf Cafe in Guelph should have its theatre open this month. Although it’s a bit far to go if you don’t have a car, a day trip exploring Guelph would cost $5 or less each way by bus or train. Three years ago there was only the Gorge, and the markit for gQod films continues to grow. There is now sufficient interest for the campus film club, the Fine Arta Film Society, to get some rarer classic films, and actually have people show up to see them. Watch for Professor Uhde to finagle some more new [and older) films from the Eastern European embassies and consulates. Hopefully the Film Society will combine forces with the WLU Film Club next term and some cross-campus communicatibn/collaboration will finally transpire. Maybe they’ll actually manage to make some experimental films. FILM PICKS: Princess: Des Boot i 5 Corners on Saturday, ‘h Graduate, 5 8 Dime, Breathless, and Alpha~ide.

‘A TALE OF TWO SEASONS The story of the-l 987-88 basketball. Warriors by Mik8 McGraw Imprint Staff The 1987-88 edition of the Waterloo Warriors basket boil team begun like a bad dream. Plagued b injuries and unorganized p r ay, they stumbled through a sporadic pre-season to a 7-8 record. But when 1988 brought the regular season, the nightmare ended and the team caught fire. By Iate February, the Warriors sported [I 10-2 record and found themselves alone atop the OUAA West. The dream finally ended when the Western Mustangs trounced them in the divisional final, This is the first part of o two part diary of their seoson. Halloween night, 1987, PAC: How depressing. I’m sitting in an almost vacant gym, checking out the basketball Warriors ,for the first time. Tonight, they’re playing one of the OUAA East’s weak sisters, the Laurentian Voyageurs. When I realize what’s happening on the court, I understand why there’s only about 12 other peoplq ,here. Air balls, giveaways, missed passes - Waterloo looks really confused. The Vees aren’t much better, but more of their bricks find the hoop than Waterloo’s. Head coach Don McCrae is a vision of consternation on the sidelines, calling timeouts when he can’t bear to watch anymore. The Vees win easily, 87-52, as UW shoots a nauseating 33 per cent from the floor. It all makes for a glum weekend. The previous night the Warriors were beaten by another doormat, the Ryerson Rams, 71-68. Their preseaso’n record sits at 2-3, After scoring 101, 90 and 84 points in their first three starts (one against the K-W Titans and two out west), they can’t seem to locate the basket anymore. The fact that veteran Rob Froese and frosh Chris Troyak are high scorers with 10 apiece on this night paints a sad picture. “This weekend we tried to focus on defence, but we couldn’t score,” says McCrae.“It’s not like football - we don’t have speciality teams. We can’t ricochet from one aspect to another. We tried to accommodate inexperience, but here we are struggling against teams that are playing hard, but are not championship teams.” I know its’s early, but it seems the Warriors sadly miss the presence of Paul Boyce. The 6’8” all-Canadian forward graduated and joined other Warrior greats on the UW wall of fame. Giving Boyce the ball anywhere across half-court usually spelled two points. This season it seems McCrae is shooting for a more well-balanced attack, but playing the freshmen leads to some discontinuity. Things can only get better. November

went to work at both ends,” says McCrae; “We’ve got much younger players, and with all the injuries we’ve had, we’re still at about October 15th. October 35th showed on Sunday.” But overall, the club’s stunning performance had to be seen in a positive light. The candid McCrae put it best. “We went into this tournament about the sixth or seventh best team, and we came out second or third best,” November 22, Rochesk, N.Y.: The pre-season rollercoaster ride hits another deep valley. Playing a very mediocre Division II team, St. John’s Fisher Cardinals, the Warriors are pathetic. Shooting just 40 per cent from the field, and outrebounded 37-25 by a smaller squad, the Warriors are crushed 77-55. “I’m losing patience with this rollercoaster business,” snarls McCrae.“We’re still not set as a squad - and it’s getting late. We are not currently game smart.” Somehow, Waterloo checks in at number nine on the CIAU top 10.

In an often Boyce (33).

The Warrior camp is like a M.A.S.H. unit. Troyak is shelved with a possible stress fracture while front court giants Jamie McNeil1 (6’9”) and Dave Rosebush (6’8”) are also hobbling. At least the team regrouped to split two games at a tournament in Guelph last weekend, Luckily, the Warriors face another one of the East division’s weak links, the Queen’s Golden Gaels in the opening round+ Waterloo doesn’t look much better than it did in the Laurentian debacle. But there’s one big difference - they have about 3,500 more people in the stands to spur them on. Once again, it’s an offensive famine as the Gaels scrape out a 35-30 lead by halftime. Only the dramatic ending is worth mentioning: Three seconds left in the game, score tied 56-56. Froese hands McNeil1 the ball five feet from the hoop......

Saturday night finds another full house at the PAC, but a very different Warrior squad shows up. They are up against an up’set winner, St. Francis Xavier, who downed a jet-lagged Regina team on Friday.

McNeil1 is unstoppable - 19 points, 10 rebounds, and sophomore Pat Telford has a career night, nailing B-for-6 from the field, Tom Schneider adds 20 and John Bilawey kicks in 17, The performance brings flashbacks of the early 1980s Waterloo dynasty.

November 28, PAC: The powerful Estonia men’s team visits the PAC, but brings only eight players. However, three are Olympians and four are former all-Canadians. This line-up, which includes UW legend Peter Savich, trounces the Warriors, 90-73. The loss isn’t so hard to stomach considering McCrae gives his rookies extensive court time. against this juggernaut. Christmae, 1887, Ryerem: Sporting a dismal 5-7 record, the Warriors roll into Toronto for the Ed De Armon tourney, In the opening round, they are demolished by the powerhouse U of T Blues, 89-63. “We botched up,” confesses McCrae. “Toronto’s one of the top five teams in the country, but we played poorly.” The remainder of the tournament is promising. The Wartiiors regroup to drub York, 74-64, and Calgary, 80-64, taking the consolation title, Froese and Schneider put on a scoring clinic. ’ But Schneider, who notches 48 points in the three games, discovers fluid on his knee and will miss the regular season opener, just one week away. “We’re just getting ourselves organized,” claims McCrae. .. . . and down he goes.” The best McCrae can offer about his club as the pre-season closes, is “we had hoped to have ourselves ready to go after things in league play, but we’re still an unknown quality.” In other words, where is the rollercoaster going next? Christmas, 1987: As I work on an OLJAA West preview article, I’m baffled. How do you predict what the Warriors will do next? After a ‘7-8 season of peaks and valleys, it’s tough to call. With veterans like Froese, Schneider, McNeil1 and Nolfi, there’s a good core of experience to mix with the youngsters. Yet, something seems lacking in their attack. Evaluating their division rivals, 1 take the plunge and pick Waterloo to finish fourth. Some still haven’t let me forget.

Campus Waterloo crews edged in Regatta Ret Rowing Club trains. daily for the future hockey by Adrew

by Carol Cambm Imprint staff

Every day but Sunday you’ll find them on Conestogo Lake preparing for future races to the tune of

coaches Don McLean and Mike Elmitt. Hard work should pay off in upcoming races which in-

elude a July 9 race in London the Woodstock Invitational the following day.

and on

Saturday, June 25th marked the first regatta attended by this season’s Waterloo crews. The men’s crew raced in the Iightweight novice four-man race in the morning and the women later raced in the heavyweight intermediate class at the Central Ontario Rowing Association Regatta in Welland. Both crews lost to teams such as the Argonauts from Toronto, the St. Catherine8 Rowing Club, the Mississauga Dons and the University of Western Ontario team while remaining competitive throughout. Conditions were very windy on the canal and the 40mrn stretch to the starting gate was more than a warm up. The race was only 2000rn and both crews .rowed hard all the way. The women’s crew came especially close to catching the Mississauga Dons. The UW crew started a little behind and remained neck and neck all the way down the canal, *keeping up a gruelling stroke rate of about 30 strokes per minute.

Although the NXL. Stanley Cup Playoffs culminated earlier this month, hockey fans will not have to wait until next October before seeing some top notch skaters take to the ice. Campus Recreation’s ice hockey league is now in full swing and provides entertaining and competitive play at the Columbia Ice Field. Perennial favourites, Casual Assassins’ occupy top spot in the “A” Division with convincing victories in their first two outings. Also with four points are the Armadillos, with a win and two hard fought ties. In “B” Division, three teams have unblemished 2-O-O records, They are the Molson Exports, WOAP, and Force-Kin. Six teams in “A” Division and ten in “B” Division will be battling it out for their respective coveted championships. The non-contact league places emphasis on skating, passing and stick handling, and at the same time maintains competitiveness without hitting. Some members from the Warrior’s varsity team are playing in their offseason as are players from various Junior A, B and C teams around the province. So come on out and watch some exciting hockey. Playoffs commence on Monday, July 4.

Laurie Featherstone is the stroke woman for her crew while Thomas Woods sets the pace for the me’n; Other members are Kjerstin Baldwin, Carol Cambre, Wendy Machen, Sue Munro, Tyrone Dowling, Tim McDougall, Ian Wilson and Dave Weisz.
