Davis Centre drains cash University and project officials blame the recession by Mike Brown Imprint staff

The Davis Centre has been assailed with criticism. The university quietly defends it saying it is functional and in the words of the president, "it closes an open tooth on the East campus." L

Valhalla hosts defence minister

"With respect to security issues, actions speak louderthan words," said Canada's Minister of National Defence, Perrin Beatty in a speech to the KW branch of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs on August 30. Speaking on the subject of Canada's Defence Policies and International Affairs, Mr. Beatty outlined the initiatives contained in his 1987 White Paper on National Defence and how the nation's defence goals should meet Canada's needs today and into the 21st century.

---- T

Three elements formed the bas@ of the original security policy review which Mr. Beatty introduced to the House of Parliament over a year ago. First, Canada required an adequate defence. To achieve this goal Canada must remain a committed member of NATO and continue to contribute to the sea, land and air defence of the alliance, Secondly, Canada must press for sound, verifiable _and mutually beneficial agreements in all types of arms control. Such treaties must cover nuclear, chemical and conventional weapons. NATO, the paper stressed, must


avoid entering intu agreements which would be difficult to verify because such treaties could "disturb strategic stability and reduce, rather than raise, the level of our security." Thirdly, Canada must remain resolved to seek solutions to international conflicts by peaceful means and supply personnel for peacekeeping efforts. Canada, the paper pointed out is particularly well placed to provide peacekeeping forces because we are not a superpower, have a sophisticated military capability, are a democracy aligned with allies, and do not have any interfering colonial past. The White Paper clearlv documented that ~ a n a d a ' sd l i t a r y commitments to the NATO alliance far surpassed the capability of the Canadian Forces to Continued on page B

Before the recessionary impact of the early 1980's was fully realized, the University of Waterloo thought $24 million would be enough to create a centre for computer research on campus. To date, the total cost of the William G. Davis Computer Research Centre is egged at no less than $49.7 mi1f)ion.The university and thtir project management firm lay the blame for the doubled expenditure on the recession. The building was originally scheduled to open in the summer of 1986 but opened its doors in the spring of 1988 hecause the tendering came in over budget. The delay came in reworking the tenders. Appmimately $12 million was removed in potential overrun costs in the tendering process according to a spokesman for the universif retained project management &m UMA Spantec Ltd. The delay was also caused by a lack of manpower, UMA spokesman Tom Knight said. Knight. like UWs president and drrector of plant operations says "unfortunately (we were) caught in a time of construction price skyrocketing." The over-budget situation right now according to Eugene Coburn in UWs capital services office is disturbing. "We're sa desperately looking for money to handle all our figures," Coburn said. UW has drawn all of the $27,575,200 in funding which was available through the Minsistry of Colleges and Universities, Coburn said. As UW's committment to raise one-third

of the Davis Centre expenditure, $15.5 million was raised in donations of computer equipment for the building. Figures from capital services indicate the present Davis Centre overrun is $4.1 million. Coburn believes the overrun can be reduced by $630,000 providing Plant Operations approves reducing the targeted furniture expenditure from $1,766,000 down to $1,236,000. As estimated by Coburn, the building project overrun for the Davis Centre will be $3,580,000.

Architect Ron Keenuurg The question which looms on campus is how will the overage affect UWs budget. Coburn denied the overage has been redirected to other accounts. "I haven't made any transfer of overage to any separate accounts," he said. Continued on page 3

Davis bashing ast time by Mike Brown Imprint rtaff UWs newest building has been the object of criticism, some of which is valid, some of which has been dismissed as whining. The criticisms of the William G. Davis -.- C - o m ~ u t e r Centre have made news'in the university's gazette which has caused a riff between some university officials and detractors of the 49 million dollar building. This long awaited article is designed to confirm the facts of the project and an attempt to clear the air of unsubstantiated grumbling and myths. Detractors of the Davis Centre are not limited to students and faculty. The detractors have made many different types of , ,







critical pronouncements stemming from a variety of different concerns. Construction deficiencies are often cited, and are difficult to confirm or deny; however, if any reader can, from a point of expertise,_challenge any official explanations please forward comments to the newspaper. Criticirm: One of the building's overpasses was built too low for a hook and ladder truck. Workers had to later excavate for a lower noadway. Rerpome: (It was) "not a mistake in digging up road for hook and lader." Shaun Sloan Director. Plont Operations "Excavating the road for a hook and lad* was scope of original project. ..,

Tom Knight Project Manager, Spantec, UMA Criticism: Siding on CIM builing (computer integrated manufacturing) is not colour matched. Reaponre: True, It must be replaced! the original manufacturer is out of business. There is a problem with the corrugation and fit according to Sloan. "One of these days we'll take it down. Wait for the rumours then." Shaun Sloan Criticirm: Building doesn't fit in! Rerponre: "What would you fit it in with? Nobody has answered this for me. (We) decided not to out-muscle the Math and Computer building." Shaun Sloan

by Mike Brown Imprint staff It’8 not the $25.50 the University of Waterloo and Wil-frid Laurier University student associations had been lobbying for but the $10.00 subsidy recommendation from the City of Waterloo’s Public Work8 department ha8 been greeted with excitement from student leadera. The $10.00 subsidy per atudent pa88 sold formula was prepared by Commissioner of Public,Works Jim Willis. The last hurdle before the subsidy went into effect wa8 the August 29 Waterloo Council meeting. According to Willis’ City of Waterloo report, “coneideration of extending the sub8idy into 1989 .wtll be subject to further reporting when the feaeibility stud and 1988 aales data are avai Pable.” Kitchener Transit already gave the go ahead for a three month pass to repiace the existing four month pass. The 8tudent government8 on both campuses will finally receive a 1.7 per cent compeneation from the transit authority for each paas sold on campus. University students now face urchaeing a $120 three month 1 UB pass which is reduced to $110 thank8 to the recently announced subsidization by the City of Waterloo. The uW/WLU lobbying group had proposed making a university student pa88 equal to the high school rrtudent ‘pas8 at $a450 over three months. The $110 three’ month univereity pass.(which includes the City of Waterloo subsidy) is $18 lower than the adult ass fare of $42 per month or x 126 over three months.

Fed VPOF eydng city council seat l

by Mike Brown Imprint staff

While still unofficial, a UW student olitician is testing the waters 1 efore announcing his candidacy as a student card-

keen upon having a student contest one of the City of Waterloo’s council seats; however, C&n& chael’s fellow Vice-President Wendy Rinella believes Carmichael would have to resign from his UW Federation of Students’ executive position. Carmichael disagrees citing other executive members have had outside commitments in the past. He says if elected, he would naturally abst,ain from voting on university related issues; however, he would have influence by his involvement in debates. There is nothing explicitly stated in the Federation’s . bylaws which prohibit an executive member from seeking municipal office. Federation of Students President Adam Chamberlain told Imprint Carmichael would be free to do it. “Ever one who is a councilor has a ful P-time job,” he said. Chamberlain stressed that due to the full-time nature of campaigning, “he’d have to take some sort of leave of absence [from Federation duties).” The Fed president assures “I can , cover for him.” Chamberlain feels it’s good to have a student there, and if it’s Carmichael, he said, “as long as it’s clear there’s a clear division (of responsibility] .. . in my mind it’s up to him.”

The Federation of Students have arranged to have an enumeration station located in the Physical Activities Complex (PAC) during registration only. If you miss this on campus opportunity and the close of the September 30 enumeration deadline, the last day for revision to the voters list is October 26. Still, if students miss having their names added to the voters’ list, a person can declare eligibility after the revision deadline up

to and including November 14 (election day) at the polling station, The candidate nomination deadline for municipal elections is October 24. Electors must be a resident in the municipality between September 8 and October 26; a Canadian citizen or other British subject: and have attained the age of eighteen on or before November

In June, Coburn told Imprint “we’ve already asked for $4 million and been turned down.” Director of Plant Operation Shaun Sloan said in a June interview “When we built Fed Hall, construction was competitive... rock bottom prices.” Now, he says, construction prices have soared 30 per cent. Sloan went back to the usercommittee and said, “you want windows (in the offices), some frills must be cut, According to Plant Operations, the Davis Centre was built for between $85$100 per square foot. I don’t think anyone is trying to build for less than $130 per square foot, Sloan said. The site’s architect Ron Keenberg concurred with Sloan ssying it was built for the “same price as an ordinary building.” Keenberg is a member of the UW Architecture program. Melamene constructed walls were among the first frills to go for a savings of around $2 million, “We could’ve cut another $5 million out, but it would have compromised the building,” Sloan. said.

While the Davis Centre is well behind schedule, it is open to most users. The official opening has been rescheduled for November IO. The university, however, still is in a quandary as to how the building will be paid off. Even if UW can muddle its way through the $3.5 million overrun, Queen’s Park gave “no money to maintain it. The university has to find that money,” Sloan said. As UW prepares to welcome fresh for the 1988 academic year, Eugene Coburn in capital services disclosed, “I’m not, the least bit optimistic, but we always keep asking (for overrun bailout) l ”

This is what Linda Frum said in the fall of 1987: Remember the guy’in your high-school cakulus class who wore thick lasses, flood pants, and carried 16 sharpened pencils in his 1 reast pocket - and would never lend you one because you should have brought your own? The one who didn’t go to the ’ prom because not even fat Mabel would go tiith him? Well, now he’s the most popular guy in his class at Wa terIoo University. And not only that, he’s going toget Qmuch better job than you are, This is what Linda Frum said in the fall of 1988: With the honourable exception of Waterloo (which during its brief thirty-one ye& of existence has managed to create an international reputation in its specialty of computer science and technoIogy) . . , The point of this exposition of Frum’s writing will develop, As university fresh, the freshman class of 1988 is all repared to learn social and inteIlectua1 lessons. The third Pesson to learn is about your new environment. In Canada, their is grave concern for our fledgling post-secondary education aystern. The university system is caught in anunderfunding as well as philosophical crunch. In the September issue of Saturday Night magazine, Linda Frum, daughter of on-air personality Barbara Frum, authored a contemptuous article. Frum’s remise was. highly legiti-’ mate: Canadiun aniversitiae are, f y fntetmationd standards,


Some are e national disgrace.

Unfortunately for all Canadian university students, Frum’s method of proving her premise makes an absolute mockery of the legitimate plight. Frum first demonstrated her suspicious research tactics in her narci8sisticl entitled Lindo Frum’s Guide to Canadian Universities.% K er 1987 guide, she Borne how justified talking to a handful of freshman on each campus along with a few administrative personnel to, yield an exposition of Canadian campus life. Her guide wa8 pronounced as garbage by most critics from coast to coast, not because students reacted with blind loyalty to defend their campuses but because the gross generalizations glared with obvious black and white misconceptions. Again in her Saturday Night article, Frum relies on shoddy research techniques such as basing conclusion8 on sources who do not have explicitly obvious expertise. Asking a student here, and a student there, is not good enough. Those students’ responses could have been whimsical instead ..of qualified by four or five years of active involvement on a c$npus. VW’s newest frosh can be proud of this institution. But UWs problems and the plight of the Canadian university system require student interest and action. Don’t let Linda Frum do your talking.

Standards at UW. Tq the editor, I am writing to voice my opinion concerning the recent movement in the reduction of course load for undergraduates by the Mathematics faculty, I did my undergraduate study in British Columbia. The re,ason I chose to come here to ursue my graduate study was t ii at this university had a good reputation in mathematics teaching and research. However, what I witnessed was the reduction from 48 to 40 credits required for undergraduates in the mathematics faculty. Although this reduction would not necessary lower the quality of our program, it would seem to an outsider that our standard is declining. I am quite sure some good and hard working high school students, especially those from the Metropolitan Toronto area will be turned away by our Mathematics facult ‘8 decision since they may thin E we are reducing the course load because there are too many weak students here. The managers of industries and business companies may no longer think our graduates are special since they do not need to go through a rigorous and demanding education program anymore, In the long’ term, this university will probably lose its edge over other Ontario universities in attracting quality mathematics students. I am afraid that in the future, this university can only attract mediocre students whose only rv;frences are easy university I I Cbeong M. TM , Graduate Student Dsputmnt of Applied Math.

UW Policeoffbradvice’tb The University of Waterloo Police Department would like to welcome all students to campus for the fall ‘88 term. For those of you who are new to our campus, we hope it is all you are expecting. Those of you who are returning student will find a few changes. It is hoped members of the Universit of Waterloo Police will be h ‘ghly visible on campus in their new blue uniforms and marked police cars. Your Police Department ha8 alway8 been here but until now, ha8 been known as the Univer8ity of Waterloo security Departmeat, wore green uniform8 and drove unmarked cars. It is hoped our new visibility will assist to better serve and protect the University of Waterloo community. ’ In the past, there ha8 been some confusion among .the upiversity community as to our function and powers. This donfusion wa8 caused mainly by our lack of conformity with traditional police dress. Members of the uw PoLice Department are all trained, SWONI in police OffiCers and assume the same responsibilities and powers as any police officer within the Pro- vince of Ontario. The UW Police Department is made up of two distinct un-iversity departments. The first being the -Police Department. The second being the Traffic and Parking Department. The Parking ” Department of UW is responsible for the building and maintaining of all parking facilities and parking lots on campus, The Police and Parking Department8 share office space within the West side of the General Servitea Complex on campus. To make that simpler, we are located on the Ring Road, just in front

of the smoke


Another new development within the Police Department ha8 been the setting up of Crime Prevention Program geared to the problems of a universit campus, A crime prevention o Pficer. is working full-time on



these problem8 and is available to talk with and advise all interested groups. It is hoped that together, we may be able to solve small problem8 before they beCome large

Recent years have brought a strong drive to educate the public about the use and abuse of alcohol. One of the most widely. recognized campaigns has been the *‘Designated Driver” program. These programs have been partially successful in cre‘iiiting an awareness of the dangers of alcohol abuse and drunk driving but public surveys reveal the majority do not fully realize the dangers. Even with this strong change of attitude concerning drinking and driving: many people who claim they would notd&ve when drunk, willingly drive under the influence of alcohol! They state, “I’ve had a little to drink but I’m not drunk so I can drive.” An alarming number of people have the misconception that it ia okay to drive as long as they are net staggering drunk. In addition, too many hold the opinion that if they have not been drinking liquor then they are in better condition to drive. This is not true. In fact 12 ounces of beer [one bottle], 5 ounces of wine (one glass), and 1~5 ounces of spirits (one shot glass] contain equal alcohol. A poll taken in 1985 by The ABB&iatiOn of Canadian Distillers showed that only 25 per cent of Canadians were aware of this fact. B 1986 this figure had increased ii ut only to

Yet anqther Davis Centre rumour which spread through the building hinted at some dissension within the ranks of Plant Operations. One source claimed UW’s own supervisor of construction refused to have anything to do with the building, That rumour was confirmed to be absolutely false by the the supervisor himself, Boris Nichols as well as the director and assistant -director of plant operations+

“It was the first (project) one I had no ihvolvement in,” Nichols said. He explained that because of the budget in the area of $45 million, WW decided to go the project management route. He says his alleged refusal to work on the building, “sure as hell isn’t accurate.” l

Speaking from his yeere of experience, Nichols says he is not sur rised the building went over bu cf get. “No building I have been involved with has not had deficiencies indirectly related to the efficiency of the general contractor,” he said. When asked if he thought it was peculiar he was not involved in at least the consultation process, Nichols declined to comment. Assistant Director of Plant Operations Rudy Molinary explained Nichols was not involved because he had “a full plate.” In bypassing Nichols, UW chose a fast-tracking project management route which differs greatly from the traditional general contractor method. With “fast tracking” the design is continuous. While construction is underway on one phase of the

UW may beat Lauder in Shinerama This year, Uw’s Federation of Students pla4 to raise at least $27,000 for the fight against Cystic Fibrosis, a disease which kills it’s victims by attacking their lungs and digestive systems. The fund raiser will run from Tuesday, September 8 until Saturday, September 10. The fund raiser’s name? Shineramal To start things off,* froeh received a bookof raffle tickets to be sold during the summer. Some 3800 booka of ten $1 tickets were sent out, That’s a possibility of $38,000 right there. Ticket sellers are eligible for prizes ’ such as a 10 speed bike and a leather Waterloo jacket. Ticket stubs should be given to the student union of your facult . In addition, our campus pu i! 8,. The Bombshelter and Fed Hall, along with other campus businesses will be giving s per cent of their gross revenues during orientation week to Shinerama. Each night, from 5 to 7 p.m. there will be live bands and a SBQ at the PAC Patio. The week will end with the first year students going to various Ontario communities such as Oakville, Mississauga and Burlington to wash cars and wipe windshields to raise money. Last year, less than half the frosh tlirned out for the car wash, This year event organizers are hoping for at least three quarters to show up. Trophies will be awarded to faculties and dorms raising the most money per fresh. Domino’s Pizza is helping out as well. Whenever you order a pizza from Domino’s, they will give you a couponi When you return this coupon to Domino’s, they will donate $I to the Shinerama campaign. Ivan Beeckmans, in charge of’ organizing Shinerama, says his main goal is to @‘beat Wilfrid Laurier.” Laurier started Shinerama 27 years ago. UW joined 5

Ivan Beeckmans,. the man behind UW Shinerarna is foremost concerned about raising money for CF. But beating Laurier would be nice, * ears ago. Althou h WLU is oneYourth our size, ta ey have consistently beaten us in raising funds for Shinerama. Last year they raised $25,000 to our $15,ooo.


Beeckmans has been wearing a cardboard collection box around his neck since June 10. This looks like it’s going to be our best year yet, he said. Beeckmans revealed

the Feds raised $1,320 before Shinerama week started - that’s $1,320 ahead of where we were last year, he added. Money raised ,for CF really helps.

No other university has aoda fountain bar and stoolsJ Ron Keen berg Architect, IKOY Criticism: It is rumoured once the unive’rsity takes official possession of the building, the stools will be ripped out at considerable expense. Rmponrd: Ia my opinion, the university would not have the right to take the stools out without exposing itself in law to the architectural firm. Sham Sloan Criticism: Operating costs of Davis Centre wiK drain other university department’s budgets.

Tom Knight [project manager] Critieirm: Railing gaps are subuniversity ,standard at locm instead of ZOcm, Re8pon8r: “It meets our requirements.

with the fire code.” Note: The dead space between the main corridor and the office wings is accessed by three doors. One of those doors is a fire door: therefore, the other two doors must both open into the narrow dead space which produces a problem of maneuverability for wheel chairs. +dy Molinary Criticism: Non-standard university issue hardware is used and is presumable expensive to replace.

In the letters section of the June 8, 1988 edition of the un‘fversity’s Gazette, Kelly Booth of the Corn ut6r Science department out Pined an A to Z manifesto of Davis Centre gri es. The letter covered some of t R e criticisms already listed but also tievered corn laints about window’ size, buil 1 ing -- layout, stairwell’

access, publicly located faculty lounges, decorative lighting, flickering lights, the building’s hours, acoustic properties, size of washrooms, lack of adequate furniture and the vinyl covering on the walls. The letter caused quite a stir on campus. @rector of Plant Operations Shaun Sloan was irritated by the letter and expressed in an interview his disappointment ‘with the Gazette for not publishing an objective expository piece on the Davia Centre, In the June 22 edition of the administration’s paper, the Gazette carried an article resembling what Sloan desired: “Davis Centre: Authorities defend new building’s design,” The damage had been done, however, and the administration has aent out a message that they are apt to ignore what seems to have been a popular summer past-time: Dcfvia Centre Bashing. . In a June 9 memo from UW Vice-President (University Services) Pat Robertson to Shaun Sloan, Robertson reveals the administration’s explicitly cynical Davis Centre policy. There hove been Q number of letters to the editor in the Gazette recently, critical of various aspecta of the Davis Centre. When I was younger I used to answer such Zetters, believing that,the writer would wish to be informed. However, i gradually learned that the writer didn’t want to be informed.

Assistant Director of Plant Operations Rudy Molinary sumped up the Davis Centre realis tically. “Anyone can find fault. Some people will like it+ In that way, it haa character; it makes a statement of its own.” Molinary insists the design stuck to the user-group’8 list of requirements. Every office ha8 a window to cite one of his examples. Sloan echoes his assistant’s sentiments. According to the project management firm, spokesman Tom Knight of Spantec, UMA said. close to 6000 items were on the deficiency list in Deeember 1988. There was “no horrendous blunder,,’ said Knight. The site’s architect Ron Keenberg justified the existence of deficiencies by explaining that when close to five million units of construction are involved and 99 per cent accuracy is realized, 50,000 mistake8 or deficiencies will be yielded. _

Part of Sloan’s fruetration with complaints, he says, comes since “there are very dedicated people in the shop, zeroing in on mistakes.” Although Davis Centre users may not have known, Sloan said university extension 3793 is the number to call to report any legitimate deficiencies. Extension 3793 is the 24,hourper-day Plant Operations emergency phone number. “Thousands of problem8 have been solved,” Sloan said. One problem which will require immediate attention is the area of lightweight dividing walls in one of the office blocks. A locked office door with expeneive computer hardware inside can be popped open by heaving a shoulder up against the thin wall. Architect Ron Keenberg hails the Davis Centre as a “world class building.” He calls it “leading edge work.” It was based on an “extremely tight budget,” he adds, and concludes that it was “designed to the university program.” The building will get an anxiously awaited critical review in North America’s top ardhitectural journals in the fall.

Althou h the number of strategic nut f ear warheads hw more than quadrupled since the mid-18808, numbers have not been the focus of the nucliar arms race for many years. Inatead, the focus of the arms race today is the increasing warfighting ability of nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons coming out of laboratories and going into the hands of U.S. and Soviet nuclear commanders today are faster, more accurate, harder to detect and more lethal than ever. They include weapons that sense their target8 and maneuver to hit with in- oint accuracy; misaile warLree s that penetrate deep underround before exploding next to t urie’d, fortified bunkers; bombers and cruise missiles that fly undetected past existing radars: end nuclear bombs that fire deadly beams of X-rays or microwaves when detonated. The United States and the Soviet Union are working on more then 50 different strategic nuclear weapon modernization programs. [Modernization efforts are also underway in the tactical nuclear weapons of these countries - partly to “compens$e” for the recent INF treaty - and in the strategic and tactical nuclear weapons of the United Kingdom, France, and China.) This 8t&t egic modernization race is dominated .by the devel-

opment of e.ver more effective ‘*war-fighting” nuclear weapons - wee ens that are fast, lethal, stealt 1 y or well-protected enough to survive and fight in a global nuclear war; The purpose of these weapons, as expressed in U.S. documents, is to “rtrengthen deterrence” by creating the ability to “prevail’ in a global nuclear war. But t%heeffect - as .the U.S. and U.S.S.R each face the growing vulnerability to a first strike attack - is the growing risk of war breaking out. The U.S. - Soviet negotiation8 on strategic nuclear wea on8 (the START talks] are m s ing substantial and important progress toward a strategic arms agreement, But these talks are largely ignoring the issue of nuclear modernization, conoentrating instead on “deep reductions” in the quantity of strategic nuclear weapons. A START agreement for deep reduction8 would be en historic achievement - it would elimi; nate thousands of nuclear weaona, establish the procedurea -Por further major reductions end build a tremendbue s irit of cooperktion between t Yle United States ‘and the Soviet Union. It would not, however, do much,to reduce the risk of nuclear war. Under the current proposals, aSTART agreement would cut the number of U.S. and Soviet strategic nuclear wea ons by about 40%. This wou Pd eliminate roughly 10,000 strategic weapon&, but it would leave newly 15,000 in place - about the number the two countries possessed in 1878. A nuclear war fought with such an arsenal would be just as catastrophic as a nuclear war fought with the current arsenal,



Furthermore, if it eliminated mainly older weapons [as ape pears likely], the agreement would succeed only in reducing the number of nuclear weapon targets, while leaving the number of modern war-fighting wea ens unchanged; Thie.res& m&t increa8e the danger of nuclear war. c Finally, if the START agreement did not include a specific ban on further nuclear modernization, it would do nothing to prevent the continuation of the war-fighting modernization race . - which may pose the greatellt dan er of nuclear we. Tife Canadian government argues that a deep reduction8 agreement would be a “&nuclear! freteze that works.” The reality, however, is that such en agmement by’itself wouid be “diaarmament that doesn’t work.” The easentiel element of an -agreement that works, whether or not it includes reductions, is a ban on strategic nuclear weapon mom dernization. Such a ban could be- accomplished by three verifiable test ban provisions: a ban on nuclear explosive teats: a ban on strategic ballistic missile and cruise missile flight tests; and a ban on space weapon taste (to prevent Star War8 modernization from becoming the new war-fighting arms race]. The Canadian government once supported these meeaures, most notably during Prime Minister Trudeau’s romotion of the “etrateg . of 8u Pfocetion” at the first an d second United Nations Special Seasions on disarmament in 1878 and 1982 [UNSSOD I and II).

’ Bush may have b&en .L. covertagent by Stephen


NEW YORK [IPS/GIN) - Despite new evidence that U.S. VicePresident George Bush may have been associated with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from as far back as the early 19008, the matter - has gained jittle media attention, , and has failed to become an issue in Bush’s presidential bid. In the July 18 issue of the left-ofcenter magazine The Nation, reporter Joseph McBride revealed a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI] memorandum in which then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover describes a Nov. 23,1963 briefing given to a “Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency.” Bush was director of the CIA in 1975-78, and has faced a few questions from the mainstream U.S. media over his role there such as his knowledge of Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega’s drug activities, as the Panamanian military chief was on the CIA’s payroll during Bush’s tenure, But The Nation report is the first sign that he may have been working for the agency 88 far

back as 25 years ago, as an undercover operative. The Nation story cites an unnamed intelligence source confirming that the vice-president began to work for the CIA in 1960 or 1961, with the oil business serving as a cover for his covert activities. “I know he was involved in the Caribbean,” said the source, “1 know he was involved in the suppression of things after the Kennedy assassination.” Through a spokesman, Bush said he did not “have any idea”. what the memo referred to. He told “The Nation”: “I was in Houston, Texas, at the time and .involved in the independent oildrilling business. And I was running for the Senate in late lg63.” Stephen Hart, the vice- residential bpokesman; adde a that “it must have been another George Bush.” The memo was unearthed from among nearly 100,000 pages of government documents released by the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act. Dated Nov. 29, 1963, it concerns the reactions of the Cuban emigre community in Miami to



“The majority of people don’t like to think - particularly if thinking is uncomfortable.” - Dr. Reginald Petty in addressing the Youth Building the Future (YBF) conference. The second Youth Building the Future conference did not entirely refute the truth of Dr. Petty’s statement, but it indicated that a eelect group of students worldwide are truly concerned about the uncertain future of our planet.

Sdlar power is already used in certain parts of the world, but is difficult to store. Nuclear fission, according to Dr, Scholz, is doomed because of rising prices and mounting public concern. Fusion power ia limitless but is expensive. Dr. David Scott, the second speaker on this topic, presented an interesting approach to the problem of an energy crisis. He regards hydrogen ener y as a ossible alternative fuel for the f uture, rlecause it would serve to eliminate the .excess amounts of CO2 which are presently being released into the Earth’s atmosphere from the burning af foeeil . fuels.

the assaseination of President John F. Kennedy. Ketinedy, a vocal foe of Cuba’s communist leader Fidel Castro, was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas, on November 22. In an interview with IPS, McBride said the ,revelation “didn’t seem like a big surprise” at first, because of Bush’s subsequent high-profile siewardship of the agency. a It was only after the vice-preeident published hia autobiography last year - in which he asserts he was choeen as a @‘nonprofessional outsider” to revit& ize the then-beleaguered CIA that McBride realized the political importance of the memo.

The CIA originally stood by its ~policy of neither confirming nor denying a person:8 connection with the agency. However, after

Closely related to this issue of CO2 ‘emissions is ,the Greenhouse effect, a problem of global proportions. According to Dr. Henry Hengeveld, of the Atmosdheric Research Centre in Ottawa, what we are currently engaged in is a total unprecedented experiment w*ith the life support 1eystem of our planet. In the past, there have been juet dnough greenhouee gases present in the -atmosphere

to maintain

an equilibrium

the planet’s temperature. However, over the last 2iH) years, concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane have increased almost ~~&per cent. If the current rate of increaaevcontinues, the earth could experience a dramatic warming trend which is unprecedented in history. A warming trend would also bring in

about a rise in ‘sea levels) as polar ice caps melt, precipitation patterns change, and the ozone layer is depleted. These changes would drastically alter the world’s grain producing areas making present varieties impossible to cultivate and increase the Earth’s vulnerability to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Another topic was the controversial issue of the nuclear arms race. Both speakers on this topic, Dr. Hugh Dewitt of the Lawerence Livermore Laboratory in California, and Dr. Valerie Thomas, of Princeton University, agreed that for the first time in several years we are on the verge of bringing the nuclear race under some semblance of control, Dr, Dewitt stri?arred, however, that in order to gain a better method for this control, we must realize that any sort of nuclear confrontation will result in mutual suicide. Dr. Dewitt also discussed the American SD1 program, more commonly known as “Star Wars” which officially began on March 23, 1883 as a response of to President Reagan’s request asking American scientists to devise a system which would keep America safe from nuclear weapons. This, warns Dr. Dewitt is a fantasy and can never happen because the completion of this weapon would promote the use of nuclear weapons, rather than protect America from the increased utilization of them. There is no way, he concluded, to guarantee safety by technological means, a sentiment clearly echoed by Dr. Thomas who viewed deterrence BS a barbaric and juvenile concept. A discussion of Third World development was conducted by Reginald Petty of the International Education Servicea in Waehington, D.C., and Dr. Wilfrid Wentzel respectively. Both men igree that the very term “third world” is a misused one, as it was devised by the World Bank for economic reasons, Mr. Petty made use of Ghandi’s words ‘There is enough for everyone’s need? but not for everyone’s greed,” by insisting that ‘hunger can be alleviated and should not be accepted as a natural state. However, before this problemctin be corrected, a thorough understanding of the system within which the change is to be affected,


be undertaken.

Without thie understanding, any posaible change will not only be ineffective but may also be detrimental. Similarly, Dr, Wentzel insisted that a recognition of cultural biases must be brought to the fore when interfacing within the global community. The Youth Building the Future Inter-

national Student conference was designed to stimulate greater international awareness and co-operation among stud8nts by increasing communication and understanding of common problems. By. emphasizing the commonalty of these problems a spirit of community between the delegates was established. The overall reti once by the participants at the con Perence was positive. From Malaysia, Lim Saw Ee said even though there were some problem8 with organization (the Malaysian delegation did not receive their conference schedules until two-days before they were to leave for the conference), on the whole, the conference was a valuable experience. The Malaysian delegation were all confident they were, as a direct r8sult of the conference, equipped with enough knowledge to make people more aware of the issues discussed. Paul Josif of Australia felt the very fact the YBF conference exists and the delegatea wer8 able to form and maintain a good degree of communication was a measure of the success of the conference. Alex Schippars and Hans Born from Holland, however, saw the conference as perhaps too idealistic. They suggested the addition of representative speakers from various industries would have added a needed dimension to the talks, thus providing the, delegates with yet another point of view upon which to . form their own opinions. - Opposition also existed among some delegatea to a press release which presented what appeared to be a united front among delegates regarding the issues discussed during the week of the conference, Among those who opposed this press release, it was felt the contentious nature of the issues discussed and the divetsity of the interests represented were too great to be united in short paragraphs without becoming too broad and feeble. The Waterloo conference was only the second Youth Building the Future conference to take place. B8CaU8e the YBF is a relatively newly established organization it is experiencing growing pains which may have contributed to some of the brganizational problems to which the delegates alludid. This should not lessen






organization. By providing an international forum for students in which topics of global importance are discussed, the YBF serves to stimulate greater community, national and international awareness and coo eration among students, some of w hpom may represent some of tomorrow’s leaders. .

- Irma La. D0uc.e shines at Stratford by Christina Hardy rind Bonnia chn

Imprint staff “‘Tis pity she’s a whore.” Even so, thCstory of Irma La: Deuce presents an infinitely enjoyable romp through the seamier side of Paris nightlife where “the only crime is to get ca-ught.” The gaudy, “aha-na-na” style outfits of the “mecs” (pimps) and, the versatile set comprised of two gigantic high-heeled shoes (which, at one point, become a ship called the S.S. Stiletto) j provide an interesting backdrop for this unlikely love story. The opening scene, which features an old, patched curtain that sparkles .nonetheless,,rsflects a prevailing atmosphere of hope in a corrupt j seemingly hopeless environment. _ An unusual love affair develops when Nestor, a law student [played by Scott Wentworth) and Irma, a prostitute [played by Susan Henley), meet arid fall in love. All is. not bliss for Nestor, however, as Irma insists. on con-

tinuing to practice her “profession.” However, when she confesses to Nestor that her dream is to have only one rich, older “custo-. mer” who will provide all the money she needs, Nestor invents Oscar, her dream man, This attempt to assutige his own jealousy by creating a dual identity causes Nestor no end of woe. After attempting, to rid himself of Oscar b-y throwing him in the river, he is charged with-murder.

However, regardless of this initial bit of embarrassment, it must be admitted that there were no “bad” seats in the house. Surprisingly, even though it was a Tuesday, the theatre was filled to capacity. The story of Oedipus, that of a man who unwittingly kills his father and marries his mother, thus fulfilling a prophecy his parents had tried to avoid, is a familiar one to most people. However, this familiarity does not lessen the impact of its performance by the Stratford Young Company.

For many people, the name “Shakespeare*’ tends to .conjure up images of ghosts and tragedy with the gloom of death hanging over everything. Not so when speaking of Tba Two Gentleman Of Verona. One of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies, this play is “a charming, deceptively simple exploration of youth: of first love, betrayal and redemption,” in the words of director Robert Beard. A young gentleman named Valentine (John Wojda) seis

things in motion as he sails to Milan seeking adventure. He entreats his close friend Proteus [Henry Czerny] to adcompany him, but Proteus remains in Verona to pursue his love of Julia [Peggy Coffey]. And, as is t pical in Shakespeare’s come d’ies, the unexpected happen8 and love’s hope seems lost when Proteus, who eventually follow8 his ‘friend, falls in love with the beautiful Silvia (Kim Horsman) who has already stolen Valentine’s heart. But hope is recovered and a happy ending lurks

around the corner. The play is very entertaining; the dialogue, filled with sharp quips and quick wit, is very fastmoving, keeping the audience on their toes. The acting.of the four main characters is a credit to the play and not a beat is missed, Des ite the language being Old Eng Pish, the actors’ interpretation of their -respective arts banishes’ all fear of not 1 eing able to understand Shakespeare. The costumes were simple in design and colour, keeping, the focus upon the dialogue. A notable exception. was Thurio [Allan Gray), a suitor of Silvia’s - his brilliantly coloured costumes were a source of great amusement. The flow of the play was enhanced by Two Guntlamen’a sets - remarkable and deceptively simple in ap earance. The stage was adorne If with only a large storybook. As the play began, the book was opened and set changes consisted of a simple turning of a page to a new scene, not impeding the pacing at all. The performances of Keith binical and Bern&d Hopkins, who played Speed and Launce, the servants of Valentine and Proteus, were an added plus. Shakespeare often uses servants as comic relief and these were no exception. Their hilarious banter and the impromptu antics of Launce’s dog, Crab, kept the audience in stitches. Summing up his feelings about the play, Bbard states, “If you approach The TWO. Gsatlamen of Vamna cynically, it will elude you. But if you remember a time when it seemed possible to die of love, when beauty ww a new discovery, and truth unequivocal, The Tws GWIum8~ of VuOM may reward you, with a gfirnpse of your o~n3nnocence.” For a wonderfully enriching eve’ning of pure doyment, The Two GentJm. dc Vargma is -49 must-see, Thapltif’*w showing at The Avoa ‘I’h&b iri Stratford until October .’ :,’ .

when I fit slapped Pigfarm’s debut dbum Hold Your IWwon my turntable, I began to feel somewhat ignorant. Having spent good chunks of the last few years *in Tomato, and having checked out a seemingly endless barrage of young Hogtown bands, why is it that I never heard of these guys before? Then I realized that Ifold Ywr N&m was recorded only one year after these prkers ever st~arted playing together. I guess I can be excused for my ignorance, because in the time it takes most other bands to learn their bass lines, Pigfarm is already knocking on the door of that elite club of ‘established T.O. rockers such as Change of Heart and NoMind. While. this. is an exceptional debut, thereis still room for impavement. The obvious comparisons to The Replacements and Meat Puppets fade considerably on the ,slower tunes, as the band has some difficulty writing melodies with much catch or edge to them. The production on the guitar also loses a great deal of energy (crank ‘em up, -kids). So.while HohI Yow Now loses half a doberman since Inprlnt’s Mr. W.

Love it or bate it, one thing hiphop has shown over its brief existence is that you can’t stand still for long or you’re goflna be left choking on everyone else’s dust. With The Gqs of I&B& some three or four years back, RunDMC-establi&ed themselves as the hardest, nastiest, hippest homeboys on the-block, putting the toughest rappbg to bonecrushing metal riffs. R&bg Hell used the critical buzz generated by their earlier works, not to mention Joe Perry’s guitar, to get themselves a hit. And with the unintentionally ironically named Tuugher Tbn Leather, well, they’re jogging on the spot and double platinum status is assured.

Even more than The Beastie Boys, who at least have a juvenile sense of ribald cleverness going for them, Run-DMC are the cartoon characters of rap, still peddling locker-room humour, bragging about the mythical pmportions of their lower regions, and dissing every MC and DJ within spitting distance. Too bad we’ve heard it all beforeMiss EJaine sounds like the kind of stuff we do at arties when we’re drunk enoug rl to think we can rap tid we’re past caring about who we o’ffend. And the best thing about Mary Mary is the Mike Nesmith guitar riff.

Run - DMC are the carbon characters of rap As hip-hop’s main contendersin the pop stakes, Run-DMC still manages to throw enough def beats and sharp rhymes in your face to stay entertaining and out of the rest home for the time being. But after hearing the brutal music of Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions, and a select few others, Toufier Than Leather just seems monumentally inconsequential.

The band tries lots of different things on this release; the acoustic and brilliant [but too shbrt) She Is Gone contrasts wildly behind The Potato, reminiscent of FIoyd’s Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pitt, but without-the pretense. Moat of the tape, however, is far removed from those two anomalies, roviding the 8tandard guitar- Ii aaed sound with a / refreshing drum style. But only the sound is standard; these guys can play. They beg the question: Do bar bands play with motiona in songs? Even Zen Bones may think-1 read into their music too much, but I contend they play emotionally. Or, maybe it% just the beer, 1 don’t know if The Importencs of Bsfng Naked is a poke at Oscar Wilde, ‘or David Byrne, or both, or neither, ’ but it is a fittingly groovy title for an earneat effort L and -awesome tape.

We know how easy it is to get stuck in a rut once,you get to university and spend your evenings doing your homework (get, serious!], washing your hair, or some other mundane activity. But with a knowledge of all the entertainment, cultural edification, and good times offered by Schnitzelburg, you’ll have no excuse if you don’t go out and explore the city where you’ll presumably be spending the next’ few vears. It ain’t Manhattan, so mike the most of it.

The Bookshelf Cafe - A new entertainment complex of sorta in Guelph, .The Bookshelf combines a restaurant, and bookstore and a new repertory cinema.

Chances R - Reasonably classy haute cuisine next door to UW at reasonably reasonable prices if you happen to have a date you want to impress or if your parents are in town.

Cafe-Bon Choix - With two places in Waterloo, Cafe Bon Choix provides desserts as well as a lunch and dinner menu. The closest cafe is just across the railway tracks in the University Shops Plaza.

Cookie Connection - If you like large cookies, rich chocolate, and nuts, then this specialty store will entice you to get fat. Cookie Connection can be found down by King and University Ave.

Cafe Moaatt - With two locations, one in downtown Kitchener and one in downtown Waterloo, Cafe Mozart serves up and other ~c~u~p~io~~s~~~~ts at pretty reasonable prices .

Doogies - Found in downtown Kitchener, Doogies’ lunch menu features salads, pastas and quiche at affordable prices. Miri rored walls offer weekendevening-pseudo-trend-setters a place to admire their black attire.

Tbe Albion - Guelph’s major concert venue, The Albion plays host to so-ores. of great local bands and touring indies. Check Hip Happenipgs’ for news on who’s playing. ’ Athenian’s - Located in downtown Kitchener, Athenian’s offers a good selection of Greek and North American food, and is just about the only place open really late all the time.

Hoodoo Lounge 11 Young Street is home to one of the city’s best clubs. For a few paltry bucks, the Hoodoo feitures some of the best blues acts in the business, such as Otis Clay and Buddy Guy. If you’ve ever wanted to go to a bar like the ones in beer commercials where everyone’s whooping it up, this is the place for you. s Hotel Waterloo - aka, The ‘Loo, aka Taps, this is the biggie with Ltiurier students and jocks (as redundant as that may sound).

Imprint, Friday, September

An Imprint We know most of you probably haven’t been able to keep up with the vast numbers of records we’ve reviewed over the seven summer issues of Imprint (not to mention the fact that we have space to fill), so we, in our boundless generosity, offer you our Summer Record Roundup. The number in brackets refers to the rating (out of a possible five) given the record. John Zom - Spillane - “One credible piece of composition and arrangement, Zorn takes on a walking tour of dusky, serted streets and shifting mospherics.” (4)

inus deat-

The Dal Lords - Based On A True Story - “Required listening for those-who think that straight-ahead rock and roll has lost its creative edge.” (41 Various Artists - The Best of such Chess Blues - “Featuring Chicago greats as Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and john Lee Hooker, everything is a classic piece of blues.” (5) The Mighty Lemon Drops .World Without End - “Their sugarcoated powerpop will have you addicted faster than you can say Pass the insulin” (3 112) The Close Lobsters - Foxheads Stock This Land - “That jangly powerpop style so popular in the U.K. but without the pretences.” PI


Pixies - Surfer Rosa - “Pixies’ first full-length album is a revelation of the power of raw, instinctual rock.” (4 ~2) kd Lang& - Shadowland - “kd returns sophistication, mystery, and melancholy to co.untry and western on this wonderful record.” (4)


Tev Falw’s Panther Burns only a Red Devil - “Contains side’s worth of the real good, twisted blues-rockabilly sludge.” (2 1/Z) H-N - Set The Fire -. “Shows a side of the band that is quite inoody and less dependent on the power chords we have come to expect.” (4) Jerry Harrison - CmmJ Gods “Harrison’s sentiments are good, but his effort is suspect.” (2) ~Andrew Caeh - Time And Place - “Maintains a balanced compromise between the music and message. Great .” (4). fIREHOSE - if’n - “Possibly the quintessential American band of the late %&I, fIREHOSE’s ‘if%’ is as refreshing as a double-scooper of lime sherbet.” (4 l/2)

Bnrrence Whitfield and The Savu ages - Ow! Ow! Ow!. - “If this doesn’t make you wanna drink yourself silly and dance on the ceiling, you just don’t know how to party.+’ (4) The Christiane - The Christians - “With their acapella roots, The Christians add funk, Motown, jazz, and spiritual longing.” (31 Stranglers - AlI Live And All Of The Night - “One hell of a good album.” (4) Thelonious Monster - Next Saturday Afteinoon - “Anybody who writes a song repeating how much he can’t stand his little dog shitting on his rug won’t be making the Top 40.” (4 l/2] Jonathan Richman And The Modem bDV8r8 - Modern Lover ‘88 - “The Faster life gets, the more sense Jonathan makes.” (3 l/2)



summer’s record crcip

Peter Murphy - Lo& hysteria - “A disappointment, especially when you’ come to expect a lot more from aomeone possessing his talent.” (2) John Lee Hooker - The Real Polk Blues - “Wouldn’t you juat ‘kill your bbst friend to’play guitar just like John Lee Hooker?” (41 verious Atiisfs 7 Word “Solid hip-hop, combining powerful dan.ce music with some of the best lyrics around.” [3 l/2) The Venetians Amazing wodd - “Any Barry Manilow fans around.” (1 l/2) The Nils - The Nils - “Captivating one’s ears with tight rushes of guitar that reach heroic heights and later simmer to an’ acoustic jangle,” (4) Michelle-Shocked - The Texas Campfire Tapes - “A lot of good stories in a sparse, acoustic setting.” (3 l/2) The Gruesomea - Unchained! “Lotqa fuzzed guitars, lotsa savage beats, and rudimentary chord progressions for a rather sub-baroque brand of garage punk.” (3 l/2) Bundock - Societe Anonyme “The lyrics are insulting to any person with at least two or three functioning brain cells.” (l/Z) Lightain’ Hopkins - Live At The Bird Lounge - “If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to be black in a white America, listento this album.” (3 ~2) Tracy man and tion ‘~%e “It’s play good

~~W;wing Muses - House Tor- “The wispiness of their melodies and their song structures has been infused with an added rawness.” (4 I/2) The Soup Dragons - This Is Our Art - “Though known as ram; bunctious in earlier efforts, this still has enough energy to cause a chill.” (3 l/2]

Leonard Cohen - I’m Your Mcm - “I still believe in Leonard Cohen, I just question his use of synthetic background music.” phi;peite .

Rope - In The Spa?- “Thin White Ropes country-rock sound takes that wrong turn at Albuquerque and gets waylaid in 1067 San Francisco ” The id? - The Frenz Experiment - “The changing moods provide suspense and interest that keep you bewitched.” 14) World I Domination Enterprim Let’s Play Domination k “Combines the dissonant sound and feedback of Sonic youth with the deranged industrial no&e of Scraping Foetus.” (4)

Mania Sodom - Persecution ‘Do you really want to hear a song called Procession To Golgotha?” [I/Z) The Sugarcubea - Life’s Too Good “Gorgtious, idiosyncratic music fuelled by the lusty passion of Bjork’s singing.” (4) .

Butthole Surfers - Hwiway TO Steven“Great, hummable songs eaten away perversely from the inside out.” (4) stump - A Fierce Pancake “Fractured guitars and big, lumpy gobs of bass lo e drunkenly around loose rub rl er band rhythms.” (3 112) . Art Bergman - Craw!. With Me - “Good ideas and tasteful production that don’t always translate into a coherent song.” (3) Simon Harris - hss (How Low Can You Go) - “Tough, clanking, filled with outtakes, this is the sort of thing that wouldmake dancing ten times more fun.” (4)

Living Colour - Vivid - “A band that can rock this hard and still say something relevant and meaningful is an all-too-rare commodity.” (3 112) ’ Various Adste - Colors you think The Cosby Show somehow a realistic portrayal then you’d better stay away.” Goverument Issue - YOU “Has very little to say.” (23

is this the year?

by Refton Blair Imprint staff The University of Waterloo has a somewhat distinguished but ignored tradition in Canadian inter-university athletics. This, despite the fact that Waterloo is one of the youngest instituI tions competing at this level. One year following the beginning of classes in the fall of 1958, Waterloo began competing in inter-univereity athletics. Football, basketball, and hockey were the first. Today the university competes. i4 approximately 35 inter-university activities. Waterloo athletics have grown over the years, and to meet the needs of both its varsity and recreation prograiias, the univer- sity built the Physical Activities Building (or PAC for short). The PAC is where the athletic depertment’s offices’ can be found. It is also the home of the Warriors and Athenas basketball. volleyball, swimming, and

squash teams. Outdoor sports at Waterloo are played at either of two venues, Soccer, field hockey, and rugby are played at Columbia fields, on north campus. Football is played at Seagram’s Stadium, which is located to the south of campus. Hockey recently found a new home in the north campus’ Columbia Icefield. The names for both men’s and women’s varsity teams are Greek in -origin. We was chosen for the men’s teams due to its connotation of a struggle with necessary characterirrtics of strength, -bravery, courage, effort and shrills important in athletic contest, The s mbol of the team is thus a Gree z helmet. Athena was the choice for the women’s teams. This choice was based on the hek goddess of wisdom, prudent warfare and womdy art, extolling the characteristics of learning, good iudnment. and the masterv II of athleiic skills.

The hockey Warriors have been among the top teams in Canada the past two seasons. With snipers like Chris Glovet (above), it is hoped UW will bred its I playoff jinx in 1988-89. ~ m-m@@

Forget all of this. Instead, you will come to realize that in Canada, the term studentathlete is not a contradictory term.

Totzke lured Knight away from his position as personnel director of the Toronto Argonauts. . Knight, two-time CIAUcoachof-the-year, has wasted no time in implementing his plan to lead Waterloo out of the OUAA dungeon. He hired former Ottawa Rough Rider and New Jersey General coach Ken Hussey and former Montreal Alouette-Concorde player and coach, Chuck McMann, as his assistants. In ‘late April, Knight held a preliminary training camp to evaluate his talent pool.

Will Knight make a difference?

The skeptics are asking the tough question. Will Knight’s coaching prowess have any impact considering the roster he has to work with? He has encountered difficulties luring top prospects to UW, primarily due to the school’s tarnished football reputation. “On a .scake of one to ten, our recruiting was about a four,” admitted Knight. “I thought it would be a six, but a couple of highly touted recruits changed their minds at the last minute.” Knight claims that other programs’ sales pitches alre the main reason for Waterloo’s ’ roadblocks in attracting recruits. “The other schools said, ‘Waterloo’s program is ping to improve, but not for another three or four years. You’re going to have to go through agony for a couple of years.’ Then the kids say, ‘do I want to do that?“’ “We could have been corn etii tive right awajr if we got tK ese guys,” claimed Knight. “But it’s a catch-22 situation. You need good kids to win in order to build respectability to attract more good kids.” Knight has insisted from the day of his hiring’ that the 1988 Warriors will play a physical brand of football. He once rem marked, “I’m not going to guarentee’ that we’re going to win, but the teams in our division better fasten their chin straps because we’re going to knock your heads off. I like to look down while you’re lying on the ground and say +uf fer sue ker .‘, You’ll be hurting after you play us, that’s the way I play.”

The team’s scoring punch comes from marksmen Chris Glover and Ken Linseman, bath of whom can be found among the league’s point leaders.

As hockey is to Montreal, and baseball is to New York, basketball is. to Waterloo. ’ . Since arriving at UW in 1972, Don McCrae has built a roundball juggernaut. Although his efforts have produced just one CIAU championship [1975), McCrae’s program is one of the most succ&sful and respected in the country. In the years 1982 to 1986,‘Waterloo formed a dynasty in Ontario but emerged as bridesmaid in three trips to the CIAU title game in Halifax. A fourth journey to Halifax was halted in the semi-finals. All four trips have one common element - they were ended by the Victoria Vikings. The Warriors have produced an allCanadian honour roll of players. Topping the list is the late. Mike Moser, a national team member whose death in 1975 prompted the CIAU to rename the league’s M.V.P. trophy after him. More recent notables include &Canadians Peter Savich, Randy Norris, Paul Boyce and Rob Froese. Last season, the Warriors breezed to a 10-2 record in th6 regular season before tumbling to Western in the OUAA west finals. Although the core players of last

If any varsity team has a legitimate ’ shot at bringing a national title to Waterloo this season, the volleyball Warriors are it. The Warriors’ exploits in recent years reveal a team on the brink of big-time success. Waterloo took the OUAA title in 1985-80, and dropped a five set thriller to Western in the 1986-87 west division final. t They made it one step closer to the nationals last season, drubbing the Mustangs in the West final. But the trip to the oasis ended with another five set barnburner, this one to the U of TBlues. Only one question remains: Is this ‘finally the year?

Conversely, the 1986-87 Warriors roared to a 16-4-4 record, finishing third, but bowed to Laurier in two cotitroversial playoff games. Last season was a carbon copy of the previous one. Waterloo finished the regular schedule at 14-8-6 (with a 8-0-2 interdivisional record) trailing only York and Western [the eventual CIAU finalists).

It would seem that coach Rob Atkinson finally has the chemistry of a national champion at Waterloo.



OUAA finalists in 1975, 1976 and 1980, and 1977 CIAU consolation champs, the soccer Warriors are in the all-too-familiar “rebuilding years.” After running up a horrid l-8-5 record in 1986, Waterloo crept up to 2-8-4 in 1987. Officially, this is the third of three such reconstruction years. The 1987 season ended with the now infamous “Ryerson debacle,” which was tabbed as a major setback to the rebuilding process. There is hope that the 1988 Warriors will make some serious strides towards total recovery. Waterloo plays its games at Cblumbia field, adjacent to the Icefield.

Little wonder, a fifth place finish at the OUAA championships was such a bitter disappointment. Carson, Ernst and moat of the other core runners are back, in what could see the Warriors challenge for the OUAA title again. Carson will be seeking sweet revenge after taking a spill while in tenth place during last year’s OUAA championships. No doubt coach Duane Kennedy would like to see his runners save their best for October 29 - the OUAA finals. WARRIORS SQUASH HEAD COACH: Barney

Landlord or roomie hassles?

The deosahd don’ts of rentina Security

Deposit t3

The Landlord and Tenant Act now prohibits landlords from asking for damage or security or security deposits. The only deposit that a landlord can lawfully claim is an amount of money equal to one month’s rent and this is applied toward the last rental period immediately preceding the termination of the tenancy. Students should be informed they are entitled to interest on the money paid for the last month’s rent.

. Pro-Rated


For four years, the Federation of Students challenged the legality of prq-rated rent; finally ‘in the summer of 1984, it was declared illegal by the Supreme Court of Ontario.. If you find your lease has a pro-rated clause, sign the lease, move in, and then inform your landlord in writing that prorated rent is illegal, and pay your rent in normal monthly installments. If you need some help or advice in dealing with your landlord, consult the Legal Resource Office, Campus Centre room



Pro-rated rent has been a common practice in Waterloo and other university towns across the province. Pro-rating is the system by which the landlord demands that students pay the full year’s rent in eight installments beginning in September and finishing the first of April. The landlord’s rational is, that many students move ou$ in the summer month’s, leaving the rent unpaid. Landlords are no longer allowed to discriminate in this manner, and must accept rent in 12 monthly installments over the duration of the year lease. Pro-rated rent charges are also said to apply if the landlord asks far the full year’s rent at once. This has occurred recently in

complaints against one landlord in the city.



The landlord can no longer reuire that the tenant issue post3 ated* cheques or other negotiable instrnments to be used for the payment of rent.

Privacy Tenants have the right to privacy in their rental unit. The landlord cannot enter without the tenants permission except by giving written notice 24 hours in advance. This is waived in emergencies or after notice of termination of the tenancy has been given. In the latter ewe, the landlord has the right tb show the unit to prospective tenants or buyers within reasonable hours.

Subletting The Landlord-Tenzrnt Act provides that a tenant ha’s a right to sublet the premises in spite of any other provision to the contrary which, the landlord may have inserted into the lease. It is allowable for the landlord to include a clause which requires his consent’ to any subtenant buf this consent cannot be arbitrarily or unreasonably withheld. The landlord is also entitled to a sublet fee [if written in the lehse), if he/she finds the subtenant to take the premises for you.

Notice to Terminate To terminate either a written or oral leas& whether it runs for a week, month or year, the landlord must give notice to the tenant. In the case of a weekly the landlord is required ’ tenancy, to give 28 days notice prior to termination. When in monthly or yearly tenancies, 60 days notice

is reauired, The notice takes-effeet 6n the date the rent is usually aid. Thus, if you have a mont K ly tenancy and you pay rent on the first of every month and your landlord gives you written notice to terminate on March 17, then the termination does not become effective until 60 days from April 1. Identical provision 6f notice applies to the tenant who wishes to terminate thelease. Therefore, if you have a monthly lease and want to give up the premises for the summer at the end of April, then you must notify the landlord in writing by February 28. If you have a yearly tenancy and wish to terminate it you must likewise give 6adays written notice. Once written notice has been given by either p.arty then the landlord has the right to enter the premises at reasonable times to show firospective tenants. Notice from either party must, I) be in writing and signed by the persons giving notice; Z) identify the premises for which notice is given; 3) specify the date the premises are to be vacated (the termination date). Notice of termination frgni a landlord must, I) state the reason and particulars for the termination of tenancy and Z] advise the tenant that if he/she intends to dispute the landlord’s claim to possession, he/she need .not yacate the premises. The landlord may regain possession by applyingfor an order from the clerk or the judge of the county or district court permitting eviction, and the tenant is entitled to dispute the landlord’s claims. Please note that all of the above points must be included in a notice from a landlord, and failure to include any can cause the notice to be deficient and hence. trci-id, ---

Eviction If you are behind in your rent then the landlord can give you a notice to terminate to take effect 20 days after the date of service. However, if you pay your rent up within 14 days of receiving this notice, then it becomes void. Evictiqn of a*n undesirable tenant by a landlord can be a lengthy and costly procedure. A cost will be borne by the tenant if eviction is ordered by the courts. It can also be a mark on your record that can affect your future credit ratings and employ-. me& opportunities. There are *various other, grounds for which the landlord can termirmte the lease before it is due to expire and thus evict the tenants. These grounds in.clude willful damage to the premises, the carrying :on of an illegal business on the premises, the safety or enjoyment of other tenants being impaired by your conduct, noise, etc. In general, a police officer canour not enter your house or room or apartment to ma z e a search of any person there. You must allow the police officer with the Writ of Assistance and other po1ic.e accompanying him to enter and search the premises. However, the Writ of Assistance does not affect your rights regardin arrest and questioning. The po zfice must lace you under lawful arrest be f ore you are’lesally obliged to answer any questions.

UW frosh do change over the years; however, the bulk of the crop always wander .around campus with symptoms of trepidation for the first few weeks of September. The good news is that fresh can rest assured, they will quickly become accust@med to Waterloo’s sprawling campus, The bad news is that nobody, not even upper year students can ever quite come to grips with the student life building infamously kliotin as the Campus Centre. Frequently called by its initials C.C., the building is a remnant of 1968 Gothic, shortsighted architecture. Lost in a time when dim light’ ‘and hidden hallways were fashionable, the C.C.‘s days as the only student life building are numbere’d. In searching for a solution to the woes of the CC., the Federation of Students have struck a committee of council. The student life project committee was organized during the summer to gather information to submit to the university ,,Development office. As part of a consultation proi. teas, the project committee toured four other university sites in the province. Ryerson’s and U of T’s open, indoor track and fitness facilit impressed the group while t 3:e openness and high visibility of services and lounge space at Guelph’s University Centre also provided ideas for a UW blueprint. * It was Western’s complex, however, which likely has the highest pptential for influencing any UW design.

CKMS. - setting , the trerida for commWciaI radio by Mike sore _’ Imprint tmff Imagine, if you will, the Bauer Warehouse, Located on the lonely dirt road at the far north end of the campus. It is from behind the walls of this rather non-descript building that the sounds permeate. The alternative sounds of Waterloo. The sounds of CKMS-FM. Located at 94.5 on the FM dial, the UW campus radio station has been saturating the airwaves with alternative programming since the fall of 1977. According to the station’s Technical Coordinator and historical custodian Bill Wharrie, when the station started up in 1968 it was available only on closed circuit in the Campus Centre and Dther various lounges around campus. Then in 1970 the station moved out of _ the Campus Centre to its present locay tion in the Bauer Warehouse and began broadcasting on cable until it got its FM license in 1977. CKMS likes to refer to itae’lf as “the 3nly alternative,” and one look at their monthly programming guide is proof of :hat. “We try very hard to have programming on CKMS that you will not zear anywhere else,” says the station’s idministrative Coordinator ‘Lorna Warlow, who adds, “CKMS does not example we get material from the Unilave commercials so we are not limited, ted Nations Radio in New York, as well, as some stations are, in what we can Radio Moscow has a programme dealDrogramme. Most radio stations have a ing with Canadian-Soviet relations that :omposite of the kind of people they are we air’,” explains Heap.

We get the stuff farm issues,” Heap said, albums), before the other stations will Ilay them. Quite often stations, espe:ially those like CFNY, will look at the :ampus charts before they touch any album. So we are actually the leaders when it comes to what will be played” Though Wharrie, Warlow, Brunerand m commercial stations. Heap are the backbone of the station, it is the 150 university, high school and community volunteers that are the heart of CKMS. Despite the large number of volunteers more are needed for a variety of jobs. “During the beginning of September th,e university is having a lot of bands, many ofthem being independent groups from Toronto and surrounding area, which are bands we quite often play. So CKMS is going to be co-presenting the shows with Bent and Cqnfederation of Students. We can use volunteers to help us with doing interviews with the bands or.being master of ceremonies, as well as just being part-of it all,” Biuner said. She stresses there are always odd jobs around the station such as up-keep of the record library and the artist biographical files. There is also something for those more adrenturous types. “We can always use interviews with bands,” Bruner said. “It would be great to have more volunteers who, when going out to see a band, take a tape recorder along and do an interview .” Music Coordinator Jacqui Brunbr Then of course, for those seeking fame, life in the fast lane and free perks The music is not the only thing that from those wanting on airplugs, there is lakes CKMS different from other radio ,the glamorous volunteer job of disc tations in the area. “We try to cover jockey. Those interested in DJing ews and public affairs information “should first listen to the station to find lat is not covered in the K-W area, or out what we are all about and then come bay not be covered in as much depth”, up and see ‘US,” said Bruner. “People ays CKMS’s new? and publie affairs don’t realize that the can actually do Dordinator Paul Heap. ,“I don’t think shows. The think t rl ey need all this nybody should religiously listen to one ii ut no, we show them what experience, adio station or watch one television to do.” Getting a time slot, however, is tation or read one newspaper.

Alternative news

Those interested in working with the news department will find it easier to get their voices onto the airwaves+ Presently there are four voJunteers working on the CKMS news team. Heap says he would like to see that number increase to around ten. “What I would like is to have people come in and research and read the news. But that all depends on their. time schedules+ they might only have time to write the news or maybe only read it. Ideally I would like to have the 9:00 a.m., 1O:OO a.m. and 12:30 p.m. local newscasts covered by someone other than me.” Heap would also like to see the fifteen minute spedialty shows done by volunteers, as well as have people out with tape machines to cover lectures and conduct interviews. If you are interested in working in the CKMS news department you should give Heap a call or come up to the station and pay -him a visit. He does warn, “we are not the school of broadcast journalism... we can offer limited training but we don’t have the facilities or the time to ‘offer extensive Courses.” Anyone interested in learning about the technical side of radio should get in touch with Wharrie. Much of the equipment used at CKMS has been either built in-house, or has been modified by the technical department over the years. According to Wharrie, “a lot of the equipment that people take for granted around here was built during the 70’s when the station had a. very limited budget and we needed these things, We have gotten into a stable situation as far as our equipment, right now we have everything that we need.” Still, the station is in need of a couple of volunteers to do various jobs depending on how much experience volunteers have with trouble shooting, There is alwa s maintenance work to be done aroun B the station, Wharrie said,

CKMS promotion

Promoting itse Pf is something CKMS will be doing more of. “We are trying to

get more promotional things done, SC that people know who we are,” saii Bruner. U-W should expect to see a new line of fashion clothing hitting the market j in the form of CKMS silk screened T-shirts. The airwaves aren’i the only alternative thing around CKMS. “We are going to be doing a few different things with our old records like making coasters out of the centrer of them. and then silk screen the CKMS logo onto it, as well as making record mobiles and earrings - smashed records make great earrings,” confessed Bruner, Aside from getting more involved with entertainment events on campus we may be seeing a few other changes ai CAMS, One such change ma be a new home fcr the station on the d ial and ar upgrading of the station’s power. “Thai is something that we have talked abour but haven’t started any action on.

New home on dial? In the area of new shows CKMS is considering putting together a programme using old interviews with bands ‘that have been done by CKMS. “We have a lot of old interviews of bands, We have an interview with the Mission from two years ago, the Cult, Simple Minds from years igo, we have got a lot of really good old interviews that could make an interesting show,” said Bruner. The station’s music coordinator says she would also “love to see a Rock-a-Billy show with old and new Rot k-a-Bill&” What about a Heavy Metal show? “If we could get somebody to do a good metal show&d who is not into things because they are sexist or violent, I would like to have one.” ‘*Personally I would very much like to see a French programme, as well as a Native Peoples show back on the air,” says *Warlow.

StudentAlumni by Josephine


The student alumni associa.tion (SAA) is a student run, volunteer organization associatedwith the Alumni Affairs Office. The 3AA tries to “link students past, present and future” and is committed to obtaining a “higher quality of student life.” It does not, as many believe, exist tq collect. money from former students. The SAA was founded after one of the officers of the Alumni Affairs Office at tended a conference of Student Alumni Associawtions. A proposal to start a SAA at UW was soon forwarded and accepted. It was agreed the task of setting up the organization would require a person to work F full-time. Fourth-year Bngineering student Blair Davies was hired for the position during his fall ‘84 work term. Meetings were set up between Daviea and an advisor from Alumni Affairs as well *as with the faculty Deans, Alumni representatives, members of the administration, and people from the various student societies, These meetings introduced the concept of the Student Alumni Association, Davies researched and created a list of goals and projects to be undertaken. By the end of the term, no less than 20 student volunteers had been recruited for the project. The organization has many projects. in operation under its mandate. Traditionally, the SAA participates in almost every major event on campus. The association’s mascot Pounce de Lion can be seen “pouncing” around at many events. Its pres-


exice can be requested by simply calling the SAA office (a&84626). The Student Alumni Association is a non-profit organization.. Little fund raising is carried out, except what is necessary’ for running the SAA. The association is, therefore, unable to contribute financially to events run by other organizations. It can however, in special cases, provide manpower and any other help it is able, Canada day was one such event, SAA members acted aa parade marshals and traffic $irectors for the parade. SAA voslunteers set up and ran theinformation booth. Another summertime event in which the SAA takes a major role in, is Reunion Weekend. The first weekend in June is usually when the 5, IO, 15, 20, and 25 year classes return to the place where they spent three to five years of their life (if not more]. Past acquaintances are renewed, as old friendships are strengthened. The SAA helps the Alumni Affairs office to organize the weekend, provide ambassadors as well as decorate, make signs, and help out with the registration and running of the information booth. . Alumni lane is a *brand new program, which got off the ground for the first time this summer. The 1988 graduating -class was the first to donate a tree to the University of Waterloo. The tree was planted just before the spring, 1988 convocation. A collection was made among graduating students to beautify the campus. Hopeful1 the tradition will continue wit K

future graduating classes. Previous alumni classes will also be asked if they would like to have a class tree. Homecoming is another traditional event in which the SAA participates. Homecoming revolves around the Warrior basketball team in November. Plans are already underway this summer for bringin past students together at t t is special time. Winterfest is .UW’s alternative. to hibernation, The SAA, along with the Federation of Students and other groups on campus, bring this winter carnival to cure


those January blues by organiz‘ing some fun filled events. -The FESK (final exam survival kit) is our main fund raising program which maintains the organization. The procedure is to send out letters to the parents of frosh asking them if they would be interested in sending a care package to the their aon or daughter. For a small fee a FESK will be sent, containing a mug, cup-o-soup, chocolate, caffeine (tea or coffee), coupons for foodstuffs; something for a cold and other surprises. The SAA will be giving out an award of $100 for the first time,

to a high school student coming to UW. This award will not be given on the basis of marks but will be given to.a student who has shown an extraordinary interest in extracurricular activities. The SAA is not only visible on campus but the alumni across Canada are aware of the organization mainly through the efforts of the Chapter Liaison Person. An alumni chapter is one that keeps UW grads together and helps them to keep in touch with what is happening at the university.

Packed w&h Hub, society and lJW info


Fed Bdok hitmtands In- case you noticed, Imprint abstained from printing club information in this edition of the orientation issue. Instead of supplying verbose pages detailing a small percentage of UWs has student clubs, Im rint elected to report on t R ,e 1988-89 Fed Book which can be picked up free of charge at rtgistration points and inthe Campus Centre during orientation. Within the pages of the handbook lies a smorgasbord of club and society information. The listings of clubs in the Fed book number 16. If students are, interested in a club at UW, then the Federation’s info-date book is virtually

the only diary of the who, what, when and where on club information. There are actually closer to 34 clubs recognized by the Federation of Students; however, close to half that number fail to submit information to the Fed book editor by the summer deadline - a -quirk that should diminish as the Fed book evolves. This iear’s book is the third printing of such an info-date book by the Federation of Students. The Federation circulates the book free of charge during orientation week. Through close to $3.5~100 in advertising revenue, and what is expected to be close to $30,000 in Federation

subsidization, UW students can discover information regarding societies, clubs, campus organizations and a host of student serThe calendar section vices. provides week-at-a-glance atid month-at-a-glance sections to organize the typical student workload. Important university phone numbers add to the reference value of the Fed book. The 1988-89 Fed book is reduced in size from its two predecessors. Down to 208 pages from 224 pages, the book is well respected according to Fed book Editor Ian L.i ton who worked e project for four full-time on t ii months.

Don’t be Om.budstaerson takes on role corrupted - it% UWnotUofWa I I by Mike Brawn Imprint


In an attempt to set the record straight for frp-sh before the are corrupted, this article has to een lifted from the November, 27, 1887 Imprint morgue disk. The problem is an old one. The argument is over Waterloo’s abbreviation: UW versus U of W. The official school short term is uw. It appears the confusion has been going on since the school’s inception in 1957. In the early 1970s, Jack Adams, a former administrator in Information Services announced the abbreviation ‘VW” would apply to the university not the often used “LJ of W,” The 1972 announcement was never officially ratified by the Boati of Governors. The ruling was publicized in a news release. The intent wa8 to fac.ilitate a common usage of one abbreviation by the media and the university community. Today in 1987, the inaccurate “U of W” logo is hosted by many shirts sold on campus. Advertisements rampantly displa the “U of W’ logo instead o P the proper UW, credentials. To add more confusion to the @&ion, the shirts our green I .

clad qaintenance people dress in,-sport the “U of W’ logo. Imprint Advertising Manager Ted Griesbach sa s of all the ad copy Imprint han i les which contains some sort of university abbreviation, one half of those say i$fJ’ viwhile the other half say “U

At ;he time when Needles Hall shied away from “U of W’ as the short form, there was confusion ,between Waterloo and the University of Windsor who went by the abbreviation “U-of W.” Another Canadian school revolving around the confusion is the University of Winnipeg. There too, there are reports that Winnipeg is known as “UW’ as well as “U of W.” In an article similar to this one which appeared in Waterloo’s Gazette last year, Winnipeg was credited as being “U of W”; however, “UW” appears on Winnipeg’s course c alendar . States side, the University of Washington is known as “UW”; the University of Wisconsin I is ‘VW”; and the Univer.sity of Wyoming is known as “U.W.” In November 1987 when Univeraity Secretariat Jack Brown was asked by Imprint if there were any attempts at setting the record straight,he replied: “it looks like your doing it.” ’

Questions like these are valid; the answers are simple, straightfor. ward, and maybe even surpris’ ing. Imprint, located in Room 140 of the Campus Centre, is the official student newspa er of the University of Water Poo and it was chosen by UW students in a referendum held on March 21, 1979, Students voted then to submit a fee each term to assist with the operational costs of the paper. This fee now amounts to $3.08 per term and is collected by the university along with tuition fees before, being turned over to


As a student paper, Imprint is written and produced by ;a staff of volunteer UW students. According to the newspaper’s policies and procedures, “Imprint is democratically run by students and- dedicated to serving stu-

paper I’

During the falI and winter terms, hnprint is published each Friday but in the spring/summer term the paper comes out on a biweekiy basis. The operationof the paper depends on the staff of volunteers who work along-side four full-time staff members to meet the publication schedule. Anyone can volunteer to assist with the paper; no previous experience is necessary. People interested in working with the newspaper are taught the various skills needed in producing Imprint by veteran volunteers and the full-time staff members. Imprint staff represent the full spectrum of facuIties and departments in the university. Engineers and Mathies work together with Artsies. and Reccers. The broader the representation within staff, the more effective the,paper can function. Each individual brings unique ideas and interests to the paper. Few students reaIize the details of putting a newspaper to-

the. Imprint scoop

gether. Articles are the most apparent portion, but they represent only a small part. Besides actually writing the articles, staff shoot and develop the photographs used, copy must be edited before being typeset, advertising has to be sold and the necessary artwork done, pages must be pasted-up, headlines written, and the daily business operation must be tended to as well. So while writers are always needed to man the terminals and photographers are a must to capture campus life, graphic artists are equally important. The graphic design of a newspaper is one of the most important features; it conveys the crucial first impression to the reader. The business side of Imprint is the least obvious part of the operation. About two-thirds of the tabloid’s revenue is generated through advertising. A full-time advertising manager and student assistants are required to sel, design and paste-up ads which appear in the paper. BiIIing of advertisers, invoicing+ filing, and bookkeeping are

necessary to maintain the financial side of the operation. The full-time business manager keeps Imprint financially sound by controlIing the monetary responsibilit ies. Students can help out in the business side as well. Shifting to the higher profile aspect gf Impriat, students write almost all of the copy which is published. There is an incredible variety of writing opportunities which need to be tackled. The paper is divided into four major divisions: News, Arts,. Sports, and Features. Each area is directed by a divisional student editor who works closely with the Editor-in-Chief and Assistant Editor in planning and executing the actuaI final result. News articles range from digging up a scoop on the Feds or the UW administration to reporting on local municipal issues and analyzing campus lectures. The Arts section can involve reviews of movies, records, concerts+ books, theatre, art galleries, and submissions of creative works. All the varsity and co-ret sports events involving UW teams are availabIe to be covered in the

namer. The features section is a io&ely defined area which overlaps the other three areas but generally involves longer pieces and more analysis. Imp&t tries to publish all articIes, photographs, graphics and comments that are submitted. The paper has a policy against racist, sexist or libelous material. Becoming an Imprint volunteer does not require more time than any student wishes to put into the volunteer operation: although, one should be warned to be adthat Im rint is known dictive Por many who become involved. ’ Contributing to the newspaper does not have to neceesitate spending excessive amounts of time ‘in the actual office in the Campus Centre. Utilizing the campus electronic mail sys tern, contributors can send material to the editor at Imprint without putting a foot in the office. Imprint is not on1 work. The staff work and socia r ize together both on and off campus, The office serves as a meeting place and the seat of many heated debates about campus+ social, economic, and political issues. On production nights, free pizza *is available for the staff to eat together while they gre working. Doughnuts and cookies are the staple fare at all staff meetings, while coffee flows constantly. from the caffeine infusion machine in the office. Imprint teams also enter in co-ret sports events when a team can be organized from within the staff. This past summer for example the Incredible Imprint Gweebs completed the softball league with a 7 and 2 record , before crashing to the Federation of Students Dorks by one run in a pick-up challenge game. Imprint is democratically operated and is responsible to the UW undergrad student body. Toward this aim, weekly staff meetirigs are held at noon on Fridays where concerns, suggestions, and constructive criticisms are discussed openly ‘and freely by. ever one whti ‘wishes to attend. AI r LJW students have the right to speak out on any issue but in order to vote on any motion, students must have attended at least half of eight consecutive staff meetings and contributed to four iseu-es bf the paper. Because running a newspaper requires continuity and a large time. commitment, , Imprint has four full&time paid employees: an editor-in-chief, a business manager, an advertising manager, and a prqduction manager. The four full-time staff members are hired by the voting itaff of the paper and are responsible to the students for their actions on, the job. Full-time staff members do not have votingrights at the weekly Imprint meetings. I Students will always have criticisms about lm rint but often staff is not in Pormed of valid concerns. Letters to the editor are always welcome and will be published as long as they are signed and delivered before the 8 p.m. weekly Monday deadline. Remember as students this is our forum; if you are unable to Ii ec0me a volunteer be sure to voice your concerns in public. It is only with full involvement from all students that Imprint can fulfill the mandate given by you - the UW students. One last point - Imprint staff and editors are not omniscient; if anything newsworthy is happening on campus, it helps ,to give the paper a call at 888~4048.
