The Council of York Student Federation (CYSF) submitted it's delinquent fee payment of $30.000for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1988 to the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) on September 14. In An accompanying letter, CYSF President Tammy Hasselfeldt reiterated the council's March 1988 decision to withdraw from OFS. "We [CYSF) are fully prepared to work co-operatively with OFS in furthering the interests of university students in Ontario, but we are convinced that our mandate will be better fulfilled if we proceed with this task as& separate organization," she wrote. OFS maintains that CYSF has not followed the recognized procedure, of referendum, for withdrawing its membership from the province wide student lobby group. Duncan Ivison campaign researcher for OFS says, "We are a democratic organization from top - to bottom. Joining and leaving is by full studentreferendum." OFS is a lobby group created in 1972 to represent the united concerns of post-secondary education students in Ontario to the government at Queen's Park. Over 250,000students are currently represented in negotiations with the government and opposition .. MPPS. Following a unanimous vote at a June OFS meeting, Ontario universities were encouraged to write to CYSF to inform them of their displeasure and attempt to pressurize the York council to pay the fees they were withholding. Of the student federations at 36 universities and six colleges which belong to OFS, only four letters have actually been received by CYSF. One of those four letters contained information which was inaccurate and misinformed. This poor response has raised questions about the real support OFS has. CYSF claims their decision to withdraw from OFS is legal and final. They contend that since a direct levy is not imposed on each student registered at York, only the elected members of CYSF are members of OFS. Thus they contend a unanimous vote by council this past March satisfies the OFS requirement of a referendum before a decision to withdraw membership can be completed. Instead of the common federation fees collected by most Ontario universities in conjunction with basic tuition fees, York Council receives funding from the university on the basis of full-time-equivalents (FTEs). One FTE represents five credit-hours enrolled in the university; for every FTE, CYFS,receives "x" number of dollars for their budget. Since a student may take as many as six or seven credit-hours or as few as one or two, the FTEs do not represent the number of students studying at York. Subsequently, CYFS makes the claim that only the elected members of their council are members of OFS. Hasselfeldt wrote, "I believe that the members of our Council were fully entitled to make this decision (to withdraw) in their capacity as the duly elected representatives of the York student body." Based on these opposing interpretations of whether the total student body at York or the elected representatives are the actual members of OFS, the situation has reached an impasse. OFS has threatened to sue CYFS over the issue but hopes such action will not be needed. OFS Campaign researcher Duncan Ivison said, "We are trying everything else first; legal recourse is our last option. We don't want to see this in the courts." Presently the chances of avoiding a legal battle are slim. CYSF President Hasselfeldt wrote in her letter to OFS Chairperson Shelley Potter, "Our Council members are convinced that we have acted correctly and in a way which reflects the wishes of their constituents. I suggest that furthef attempts by OFS to force CYSF to remain in a voluntary association of which it does not wish to be a membe will only be wasteful of our combined resources." If the dispute should reach the courts, the students of Ontario will find themselves sueing themselves.

Feds press McLeod on co-op fee by Mike Brown Imprint staff Co-op fee increases are the main concern for students here at Waterloo says Minister of Colleges and Universities Lyn McLeod. On Tuesday, McLeod emerged from a meeting with three G i versity of Waterloo Federation of Students members with this fresh in her mind. The primary focus of her meeting with Federation President Adam Chamberlain, Vice-president Wendy Rinella and Researcher Peter Klungel was co-op fees, the minister said. The price ceiling on co-op fees is unclear and has caused concern for students as to when and how much university administrations can increase the fee. "Two messages that particularly came through," M c b o d said, "Was that they (students) really would like some certainty to it so that there can be future planning for students." Federation representatives want to ensure they will have an opportunity to make a presentation to the Ontario Council on University Affairs before the council's report which is expected to be released in January. "I'll ce;;ainly ensure that that happens. McLeod said. Continued o n n m e 11

Ward sysiim

A three-ward system in Waterloo could give students a stronger voice without creating unnecessary divisions in the community, Federation of Students VPUA Wendy Rinella told Waterloo City Council Monday night. Councillors are currently elected on an at-large basis. Five proposals for a ward s,ystern in Waterloo were presented to Council. Option A, the Downey/Williams proposal, would see 7 wards created with one councillor elected in each. In addition, three Regional representatives would be elected on a at-large basis. A modified version of the proposal would create five wards with three Regional representatives elected at-large. Williams, ‘a UW Political Science professor, argued that these proposals adhere to criteria used in setting federal and provincial electoral boundaries; there is a 25 per cent tolerance limit either way on population variance from the average. Option B would create eight wards with one councillor elected in each. Three Regional representatives would be selected by Council. Option C creates three wards with three councilors to be elected in each, The top “votegetter” in each ward would be elected Regional Representative. However, Terrence Downey, also a political. science professor at.

Student concerns raked .at Senate\

You Have To See It To Believe by Ralph Zuljan Imprint etaff A motion requesting that spring term exams be written in air conditioned buildings was approved unanimously at the Senate’s September 19. meeting.’ The motion was put forward by Tim Jackson, an Arts student representative. During the spring 1988 term, according to Jackson, the heat in the PAC was “unbearable.” A “significant number of students” approached Jackson about it during the exam period. Jackson claimed “he wrote three exams in the PAC” and found the temperature “uncomfortable.” Jackson noted his “classmates and students in Village” stressed the issue on “various occasions.” Jackson pointed out that although the Registrar is already considering locating August exams outside the PAC, Senate’s acceptance of the motion would indicate the urgency of this issue. Other .student issues helped round out the agenda. Tim Jackson asked President Wright about-a letter sent to him in August by the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS]. The letter requests that students be exempted from writing midterms on October 31 in order to allow them to attend a march protesting university under-

funding to be held at Queen’s Park that day. President Wright responded he believed he had seen the letter; although, he had thought it “for information only.” He indicated the university had been “generally supportive” of OFS activity in the past. A report on the status of graduate programs at UW was presented by Dean of Graduate Studies Jim Gardiner. The report noted that master’s programs take “on average” two years-to complete, while PhD’s take four years. However, the fact that no statistics on female graduate students exist is considered a problem. Further issues raised in the report include the following: a 35 per cent decline in foreign students because of differential fees; average graduate student 4 income was about $10,000; and i only about 60 per cent of those: starting a graduate program actually finish it, Senate also appointed three members to the Board of Governors; new to the board are James &ox, Doreen Brisbin, and Tim Jackson. In UW President Doug Wright’s opening remarks he told the Senate UW has a “bright and enthusiastic” class of freshman. Wright also commended the efforts of those inv.olved in this year’s orientation activities.

Federation reconsiders membership* extension

International studies ,option to be offered .- I by lohn Imprint

Mason staff

UW professors and students have long been involved in technical and academic cooperation in other countries, but no department or option at this university has specifically focused on the growing interdependency of the modern world, This situation may soon change. A new option program, presently at the proposal stage, will offer students the opportunity to focus on international stu_ dies while pursuing their major discipline. Titled, International Studies, the new option is expected to truly represent growing trends of interaction on our globe. Dr. Ron Bullock, a UW geography professor has been coordinating the development of the new op’tion; he says International Studies will encourage a flow of ideas and people across the existing cultural and geographic boundaries. “The university,” he says, “has long been involved in other countries: UW biologists have helped Ethiopia solve some nutritional problems through fresh water ,fish farming; engineers ^ have helped solve water pumping problems in the Sahel region of Africa with windmill technology; geographers have aided Nigeria in the development of an inventory of resources through remote, sensing t ethnology; op-

tometrists have brought vision care to people of the Caribbean region; and accountants have assisted Brazil collect massive corporate back taxes using advanced computer-assisted auditing techniques.” International professor and teacher exchanges are underway each term at UW,and a wide variety of European languages courses are taught on a continuous basis. “We also already offer over ZOO courses that address world Bullock says, “without issues,” even cousidering our language courses.” The International Studies Option will provide formal recognition to all these activities. Students will be required to take a package of ten courses relating to international issues and global interdependence, They Gill be expected to develop a regional focus during their senior years and maintain a 70 per cent average in the program.Although learning a second language will not be required, it is highly recommended. Currently the proposal is undergoing final reviews before beginning the laborious process of approval from the departmental level to the final Senate decision, The university Senate is expected to rendep its decision on the International Studies Option in November of this year. If ap‘proved, the option will be available by fall 1989.





Brown staff

The Federation of Students Council formally motioned to remain a member of the Canadian Federation of Students, UW’s prospective membership is scheduled to expire in November; council decided to however, pursue membership in the national student lobby group by 14 votes, with two opposed and one abstention after hearing supportive addresses namely from Federation Vice-President Wendy Rinella and Art’s Co-op Councillor Tim Jackson The motion to seek an extension of UW’s prospective membership was padded by support from President Adam Chamberlain as well as by a presentation from visiting Canadian Federation of Students Chairperson Beth Brown. Presumably, under CFS bylaws, UW would have to schedule a referendum within two years of being acclaimed as prosPective members. Ultimately, the conditions for renewing Waterloo’s prospective membership will have to be set at a CFS general meeting. Unless CFS declines the Federation appeal for a’n extension to the lapsing two year trial membership, Waterloo students will be asked to head to the polls to cast their votes to decide on the fate of a longer term commitment to the national organization.

Former cover girl Ann Simonton will speak out against the “Myths of America’s Dream Girl.” Simonton has become a controversial figure by protesting what she argues is gross exploitation of women in society. Simonton has sported a dress

// Edit.orial ,

Division looks bad for OFS d ’ Numerous and complex problems presently face post-secondary students in Ontario: rising tuition costs; an exorbitantly priced and I shrinking supply of housing; high professor-student ratios; over- _ crowded classrooms; and general government apathy toward the education system, All require students and their elected leaders to band together in effective representation of student concerns to federal and provincial governments. Instead, division is rending the one organization, the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS), which has represented the province’s college and university students since 1972, Currently OFS lobbies Queen’s Park on behalf of 250,000 individual students across Ontario. The Council of York Students Federatiun (CYSF) and the OFS are at loggerheads over the issue whether CYSF has the authority to withdraw its membership from OFS without holding a universitywide student referendum. York student council ‘members want out of the OFS lobby group because they feel direct negotiations with the concerned ministries and ministers o;f government will be far more effective in achieving their overall goals than paying OFS to do it for them. Owing to York’s unique funding‘situation in which CYFS receives financing according to the number of credit-hours subscribed to rather than the number of students, elected CYFS members maintain they are York University’s only members of OFS. In March 1988 CYFS voted unanimously to withdraw York’s membership from the lobby group. OFS has refused to observe their decision as democratic or legal. Ideally this dispute could be resolved amicably, but the latest word has CYSF and OFS settling their argument in the courts. This is certainly no way to pursue that elusive united front iin our student lobby efforts at Queen’s Park. I What a disgrace! OFS, don’t be so foolish,as to sue students withstudent money. The only winners from such a plan of action will be the lawyers representing both sides. Dragging this childish dispute into court will only bring embarrassment to the remaining united students of Ontario. How do we ask the government of Ontario to increase funding for higher education and provide new facilities for students when we spend what little money we do have in litigation? Let’s grow up executive of OFS and CYSF - neither of you are completely correct. You are acting like children and we want to look on you as mature adults. ’ Both parties are confident victory would be theirs should the issue reach the court, A problem arises- because neither side presents a sound argument. The current CYSF is not following the traditions 8et by previous York councils. In the past, student referendums were conducted regarding the status of York’s OFS membership. On the other hand, because of CYSF’s complex funding situatiop, the OFS ha8 tiade many dast exception8 on the case of.York’s status and treatment in the provincial body, Just which precedent will the’jubge consider more important? Neither aidtian be confident of a favourabfe judgment from the’ courfs: rather, the debate will be ongoing and consume vast sums of money in legal fees. The lawyer8 will be smiling while their receipts grow; no wonder they are currently pushing their individual clients to pursue legal; recour8e. The post-secondary students of Ontario need CYSF. And York 4 students need the remaining 225,000 of u8. If we as Ontario students cannot rectify this problem within our own body, how can we convince Queen’s Park that we have the solutions to the complex problems of education in this province? .





Mother Teresa


Last Saturday, September 17, an unusual event involving a truly venerable lady shamelessly abusing her considerable influence occurred on Parliament Hill. This lady is known world-wide as one of the very few individuals - including Ghandi - on their way to sainthood. Her name is Mother Teresa, Last Saturday the 7% year-old_ Nobel ‘prize winning ;i;,;re@ . at the National Rally . This event is the beginning of the pro-life moveme&s preelection campaign for a tough new abortion law. The rhetoric was predictably right-wing, one memorable line being “This is a first step in taking Canada back from .tpe enemy!” Nowhere is this enemy named, my guess is it includes much of the twentieth century. By far the moat disturbing words came from Mother Teresa herself. She declared that both the mother and doctor involved in an abortion. should be imprisoned for murder. She went a8 far as to say if the life of the mother is threatened, the woman should be willing to . sacrifice herself; “a mother should be willing to die for her child.” No mention was made of how her husband and other children would feel about such martyr\ dom. In and of itself I have nothing against the full expression of views/but the case here is a little different. We have a figure of considerable notoriety in one area, urring her influence to speak in another area where she , has no auth0rit.y at all, Of course i this temptation is gladly given in i to’by most figures who by var‘ious routes attain the mantle of ‘yauthority” in the public eye. Perhaps the most dubious of all claims is “moral!’ authority. The Pope for instance’ is celibate, yet he has (in theory) the “Moral” authority to make pronouncements on matters of human sexuality to millioks and millions of people. Each of these, by the way, know a great deal more about it than him! In like manner, Mother Teresa’s “Moral”


is here


shaky ground. She seems to have no difficulty making absolute statements on pregnancy, never having been pregnant herself. She shares this paradoxical “qualification” with the men 1 who, like the Pope, have loudly voiced opposition to abortion: they haven’t been pregnant either. x

What’8 most concerning is the fact that Mother Teresa was used by the pro-life movement as an Icon whose judgments, evaluations and opinions on any subject supposedly carry the same weight as her wonderful work with the suffering and dying in Calcutta. She admitted, “I don’t know politics.” Prime Minister (Brian Mulroney evidently knows quilt: a bit about politics; he and the other two party leaders wisely missed the rally. On January 28, 1988 the Supreme Court of Canada, in a five to two decision, ruled the arbitrary nature of the old abortion law “violated a woman’s constitutional right to life, liberty and the security of person.” Note that the right to martyrdom isn’t in the Charter. Parachuting in a saint, who know8 nothing of our Charter of

Rights or our history, gives us some insight into the emotionladen tactics the National Rally for Life (composed of many American groups) is ready to use in this upcoming campaign. Until this moment, I’ve had nothing but respect and admiration for the work Mother Teresa has done in her “Missionaries of Charity” in India. I profoundly wish she had not been seduced by the temptation to air obviously strongly held convictions, using her well-known name to add spurious weight to the cause. To have strong view8 and express them is essential to our freedom; to dress them in borrowed robes of other accdmplishments is deceptive and tianipulative on the part of her hosts. Lyn


Rurhours surround UW tunnel pass To the editor, This year’s frosh week saw t he introduction of the University of Waterloo Tunnel Pass. These passes were distributed to the frosh through their faculty orientation committees and through the Federation of Students office. Rumour had it that by purchasing a tunnel pass, the funds raised could be ueed to *open up the current underground network while also expanding it with a tunnel to Wilfrid Laurier University. The latter would definitely benefit those who are currently ntaking the business option at Laurier. Although the benefits .of the tunnels are numerous, the rum-. ours are just that.,. rumoursl

The actual purpose of the Tunnel Pas8 was to raise money for Shinerama. So, in fact, the tunnel pass does nothing at all. But not to worry, the frosh that were “taken” this year will have an opportunity to have fun with the frosh of ‘89 when they purchase their “official” 1889 University of Waterloo Tunnel Pass. It is likely that these passes will become collector’8 items or keepsakes over the years. Hopefully everyone will realize the Tunnel Pass, costing only a dollar, helped us surpass Laurier in Shinerama totals.

vs research


WPIRG- fee lesser of two evil6 To the editor,

and lose three dollars, then surely that’s their own fault; ignorance of the fees are no defence. However, the truly astonishing aspect of Mr. Tarr’s complaints is that he never mentioned the compulsory Interuniversity Athletics fee.

Regarding an article in the Imprint Forum of September 16, Mr, Tarr seems to be making an extraordinary amount of noise -over a refundable three dollar fee. This very small and, in my mind, entirely reasonable, sum goes to support a respected university research organization. And the UW course calendar explicitly states in its fee schedule that (the WPIRG fee) “is voluntary, refundable and not II requirement for registration.” (my italics). I noticed that upon registration and chose to pay the fee. If other students don’t take the time to look through the calendar


To the editor, Administrators of the University of Waterloo appear to have become complacent when it comes to fair treatment of students attempting to buy books at the university book store. The first week of classes this fall was marked by continuous long lines of students patiently waiting to gain access to both levels of the store. It was far from a propitious introduction to on-campus services for first year students, They deserved better. Part of the problem could possibly have been allayed by a bit of decentralization of sales through some satellite outlets around campus but the main problem appears to be much more serious. If UW is known for anything, it’s for being the king of computer campuses in Canada. From this perspective, what was happening at the book store was not only embarrassing, _I it wasmortifying. A tale was going around the campus that the person who fought for installation of the present computerized cash register system in the store retired suddenly after seeing it in operation. One wonders if the story is entirely apocryphal. As the store closed at 5:00 on Friday, lines of students in the basement stood waiting and watching the cash registers stuttering out sales slips with agonizingly painful slowness. One person was heard to say that the system had been switched to another mainframe earlier in the day in an effort to speed things up, only to have the opposit4 effect occur. Cashiers equipped with abacuses would have been considerably faster. If what was happening in the book store was in any way representative of the future of high tech in this country, it’s time for us to start raising horses again. We’re going to need them. Ken Ingle Year 2 ERS

Now this is something that should be held up to public scrutiny. Interuniversity Athletics comprise $25.25 worth of our registration fees - the largest sum short of tuition. This entirely non-refundable pile of money goes, as I understand it, to fund the teams that play for UW. Three measly refundable dollars go to support a university group that actually does something productive;

[Please note that I am not talking about Campus Recreation fees. Those I approve of entirely because they involve students directly in physical activity, instead of the passivity of sportwatching). Perhaps some of WPIRG’s funding does come from apathetic students who are too lazy to glance through the fee schedule but this to me hardly constitutes a “fraudulent” act since the students themselves are to blame for not acting. Even if this

At least people who don’t like WPIRG don’t have to pay the fee. Of course I hear some people saying that athletics is an enormously important factor in some people’s lives, and that I


On September’ 12 over 1500 people passed through the doors of Federation Hall. As a staff member who worked that night, I must say that those 1500 patrons kept us extremely busy. Since Fed hall is a little understaffed at the moment, we would never have attained success with the capacity crowds without the help of many people who volunteeredfheir time and effort to help us. A very special thank-you goes out to all the people from the Fed office who donated their time and effort to help US‘. I think I can speak for all staff when I say that your help was greatly appreciated. It was a rough night, but your teamwork payed off. Frosh week was a similar ex-

Al-Anon is for families, friends and relatives whose lives have been affected by alcoholism. Adult Children of Alcoholics is another support group that involves children of alcohol abusers who are now finding their parents’ alcoholism is affecting them. If someone close to you has, or has had a drinking problem, the following questions* may help you in determining whether alcoholism affected your childhood or present life,

Congratulations and sincere thanks to everyone who helped at Fed Hall during our opening week: the management team, all staff, Fed office staff and volunteers and anyone else not mentioned+ You all deserve to be commended. We survived frosh week!,.

To the editor, I would like to thank all those people throughout the university community for their efforts during Orientation Week 1988. In particular, I would like to thank all the orientation chairpeople and their committees, the Federation of Students Orientation Committee (Fed reps), the deans of the faculties and the president of the university. 1 would list everyone’s name, but I am bound to forget someone. I do not think many of the frosh realize how much effort goes into putting an event like orientation week together. Without the hard work, and dedication put in by the people listed

Perhaps not, but why are Radio Waterloo, Imprint and others benefitting from refundable incidental fees not considered important enough to warrant compulsory funding? Who’s setting the priorities here? (And no, I’m not associated with WPTRG in any way). Enough babbling. I hope Mr Tarr enjoys the hot meal he plans to buy with his three dollars. I, for one, will be missing the week’s worth of hot meals that I won’t be buying because of the athletics fee whilst enjoying the intelligent articles that WPJRG supplies us with.

This was Abhol by Daaeal


Sinclair Lewis once said, “A man takes a drink, the drink takes another, and the drink takes the man.” Consider this scene typical to a wild university party: beer in everybody’s hands, couples on couches, and loud chants beginning the spirit of Octoberfest and closing with beer stains on ’ the rug and dirty bathrooms reeking of vomit. But, it had been a great party, a chance to finally let go on a Friday night.

Yet for some, the beer is not consumed in order to “let go,” but because it is a routine that has become part of their everyday lives; it had become part of week-ends of living on beer, morning and night, and then struggling to sober up for Monday morning classes. Alcohol abuse is a problem at most Canadian universities today. Of course, every university has its own idea of who is the worst abusers of alcohol. Some. may boast that “Westerners are the biggest party

Mad about PIRG 1 To tbe editor, I would like to discuss some further points concerning WPIRG, whose fund-raising techniques I initially coniidered in my letter of last week. It is claimed that the WPIRG charge was included on the fee statement as the result of an expression of interest by one third of the student body fifteen years ago. This is ridiculous. Such a measure should have required at least a majority and a renewal by a referendum every four years if not every year. I believe, however, that the WPIRG charge should be removed completely from the fee statement. A referendum should

not be necessary; this is not an issue that requires unanimity. It does not require that the majority impose its views on the minority (nor vice versa, in the apparent case of WPIRG). Each student should be free to choose whether he or she wishes to support WPIRG or not, without being “tricked” into doing so. I find it particularly Fypocritical that WPIRG, a group that espouses Ralph Nader’s brand of consumer advocacy would want to depend for some of its funding on the ignorance of student consumers.

animals.” So mavbe it’s Western. maybe it’s McGill, or perhaps it% Waterloo. To try and conquer the problem of alcohol abuse at UW, the Federation of Studelits has put on an Alcohol Awareness Week, The program they’ve sponsored is called “speakeasy” - “a computer that serves up sFart thinking on drinking.” But, this type of program is only temporary and needs to be reinforced througho’ut the year. The best way to improve student awareness is advertising, but it’s hard to put down a product supported by many. One must decide whether beer companies’ support should override moral obligation to fellow students. According to slogans, beer means good fun and good friends but ‘that’s in the beer ,commercials, Export beer can’t seriously be considered “the backbone of the country.” On the other hand, why worry when “X says it all” cause you know “this buds for you.” In reality it’s not that simple; beer can’t bup happiness or a dream. In contrast to the pleasant images portrayed by-ads, are its effects on the body. Beer degrades the liver, depletes the body of water-soluble .vitamins like B and C, and with 750 calories per mug, contributes to the rapid growth of a beer belly or “love handles.!’ But when you’re young who thinks about all this? Yet how can you forget the times you embarrassed yourself at parties and had to be taken home, vom-

ited all over your friends car or saw or knew of someone who was run over while drunk. This is not to say that one shouldn’t drink at all, for drinking has its good points. Drinking has also become so integrated into university life that its hard to object. Nevertheless, a couple of rules should be followed: don’t get dead-drunk and never drink and drive.

to drink, here are some suggested of excuses. taken from the Canadian Gdvernifient’s “Student Life” pamphlet. “Come on, why ya not drinking?” “No thanks, I’d rather fall asleep in bed than under the table.” “I’m on diet thanks.” “I’m driving+’ “I can’t, I’m taking drugs” “Sorry, I’m an alcoholic’ if I drink I may be in big trouble” (my personal excuse) Alcohol shouldn’t become a txoblem if you don’t let it control ;ou* ’

A waren.ess promotion planned

New. leader takes over AdviWy by John Mason Imprint staff The reins of the Waterloo Advisory Council (WAC) were recently transferred from past president Fred Brown to Patricia McLagan. McLagan, managing director of Toronto-based DMR Group Inc., wishes to continue the direction pursued by Brown. In addition she wants to further strengthen links between the council and various bodies on campus. “I would like to see awareness [of WAC) improved,*’ said McLagan, “among students and the other constituents at UW. We must facilitate the accessibility to the council if we are to fulfill our mandate. We must continue to offer useful advice or else we might as well be folded.” WAC is a body of appointed volunteers from industry and government who give the university advice about co-op education programs. In its simplest form, WAC counsels co-op education on its direction and planning. In more complex ways its members assist researchers to

make contact with industry and government and provide UW administration with practical advice about the world beyond the reaches 6f campus, Most students have not heard of WAC and even more have never witnessed its existence. But over the past year out-going WAC President Fred Brown has directed a concerted effort to alter this image. He began his quest by questioning the fundamental value of the Advisory Council. After meetings with administration, faculty, and student representatives he concluded WAC definitely still had a role at UW. Brown remembers UW President Doug Wright’s response in particular, “He (Wright) gave us a resounding yes, without any hesitation,” “In our meetings with faculty members,” Brown went on, “many asked us ‘Who are you?% was clear we had an identity problein.” Students had the same response, he said. WAC established three priorities for 1987-88: to get closer to the students and their concerns

to attempt to maintain a high quality education; and to make WAC structure more.effective. The first concrete action Brown took was establishing a standing committee system for each of the six faculties. Each committee became ,responsible for working with the priorities of its particular faculty. The larger Council then concentrated‘ on campus-wide issues. Brown feels the faculty committees have been a key factor in ensuring that WAC accomplishes its primary goal of locating ways to assist the university. The second action involved

WAC assisting the university in formulating plans to address student concerns about the quality of life on campus. WAC got involved in student life issues because, as Brown put it, “my sense of it is that a lot of this (quality of life on campus) has to do with the workload carried by some students, which in so’me cases is incredibly high. I think the faculties are now trying to make adjustments in this area.” The lack of adequate housing, better recreation facilities, underfunding problems, and student-professor ratios were issues also addressed by the


Council. “Liaison with industry, as a conduit for the university,*’ says Brown, is also a part of WAC’s role. The out-going council has been able to initiate several important conta’cts between academic and industrial labs. The new president hopes to maintain the advances gained over the past year. She”assumes her role with the Council in its most clearly defined . position ever. If WAC continues to increase its effectiveness ‘*then the council will be crucial in UW producing even better graduates in the future.

The Faculty Association is sponsoring a series of lectures to discuss issues raised by the Free Trade Agreement. The Free Trade Agreement, which could come into effect as of January 1,1989, would gradually eliminate tariffs between Canada and the United States. The agreement is expected to be a major issue in the upcoming federal election. Dr. Ken Stollery, of the Economics Department, began the series with a discussion of the Economic issues. In his speech he tried to explain the two opposing views and their supporting theories. The traditional, protectionist view is that Canada would become too dependent on the re-

source industry if the agreement were to go through. The jobs that would be lost in the manufacturing sector would be replaced by less skilled jobs in the resource industries. And Canada would become vulnerable to fluctuating prices in the resource industry, Stollery said.

The other argument is that the accord would allow economies of scale to come into effect. With longer production, the economy would become more efficient. Under this scenario the loss of jobs in one company will be replaced by the increase of jobs in another company in the manufacturing sector. Stollery also pointed out the concessions Canada will have to make: the loss of an ability to* scrutinize American investment: the deregulation of our financial


agencies; and the creatibn of a Continental Energy Policy. The last issue would allegedly prevent Canada from reducing its oil exports to the United states in a worldwide shortage, and from ever implementing a dual price system. The lecture series will take place on Tuesdays at 3:m p.m. in Arts Lecture Hall room 116, The following topics will be discussed: Free Trade - Women and the Service Sector (Sept. 27), Free Trade and the Environment (Oct. 41 and Free Trade and Canadian Universities (Oct. 111, On Thursday Sept. 29 at 6:30, the Director for Policy for David Peterson, Philip Dewan, will be discussing the issue in the provincial perspective, in Needles Hcill room 3001. Dewan is a Waterfoo graduate from the Independent Studies Program.

ever, he maintained the Tories’ free trade bill is unnecessary. He described Canada’s trade position as already favourable, saying that Canada has a larger proportion per capita of GNP in trade than any other nation in the world. Chretien also stated that tariffs are not a problem; 80 per cent of the goods which travel between the US and Canada have no tariff.

Another concession which cmcerns Chretien is the negotiation of subsidies. He said subsidies which may be endangered by the free trade agreement include medical benefits and subsidies to workers with seasonal work, such as fishermen. Saying Americans have little regard for Canadian culture, Mr. Chretien added that under FTA, Canada’s culture may be absorbed by the American culture,

The former finance minister said what is before us is not a free trade deal but ,/a deal with the Americans.

than trying to make deals with regional and industrial interests. Chretien feels Prime Minister Mulroney’s policies are deals. “ he’s the head waiter.” said Chretien. “He goes to the people and says what do you want and he serves them!” Following his address, Chre: tien fielded questions from the audience, citing his position on other issues.

A unique corresponddnce ‘course wag offered this past summer to students of the UniVersity of Waterloo, CSlOO, an introductory computer course, was the first correspondence course ever to be offered by computer, The forty students, randomly selected from a pool of 400 interested applicants, were given a Toshiba microcomputer to work with throughout the term. To satisfy the requirements of the course the students were required to practice the concepts taught in #ie course on the microcomputer, and to submit assignments to the University via electronic mail, Only one student failed the course, and while the size of the class is too small to compare with the course offered on campus, the results were encouraging. The goal of the course was to provide the necessary tools to promote as much personal interaction as possible between the professor and the students. Students could contact a tutor at any time by using electronic mail to send the message. The tutor would then respond as soon as possible to the request, which usually took less than a day. Furthermore, the turnaround time for graded assignments was far less than conventional correspondence courses which rely on Canada Post to deliver the assignments to and from the students, The course was a part of Project ARIES (Applied Research in Educational Systems) whose goal it ia to measure the impact of the portable computer on education, and to determine the feasibility of providing network facilities for portable computers.

One member of the audience asked Chretien his views on abortion; Chretien’s response was that, although he is personally against abortion, he recognizes that Canada is a multi-religious society and that an abortion law must be acceptable to all religions. Chretien also touched on environmental conservation, saying the quality of life in Canada must be preserved. Final costs of the evening were not tallied at press time but Feds VP Academic and University Affairs Wendy Rinella estimates the Federation broke even on their sponsorship of Mr. Chretien’s visit.

What aspirations do you have for the the leadership of the federal Liberal party? Chretien: “None... They have a leader.” What will your role be in the upcoming federal election? Chretien: I will mix whenever possible my professional life with helping some candidates, but I am no more a politician. I don’t know why they all want me around, What is your opinion of the separatist policy of the Parti Quebec&? Chretien: That is a kind of a sad situation in Quebec now because the fact that the P.Q. is trying to radicalize its position on separatism,.. They put themselves in a position not to win the next election. And that deprived the Qu-

“I am no more a politician. I don’t know why they all want me aroutld.” ebecers of any other alternatives but to vote for my party... The internal democracy is not very good because, well, they cut themselves off - the chance of being a credible alternative to their government as an ,opposition should be... It is not very healthy because it makes somewhat a one party situation in Quebec. As a Liberal I’m not complaining but as a, if I can use that term an elder statesmen, there is concern for the democratic process. Do you know what kind of role ~on~eone like Msrc Lalonde will play in the next election? Chretien: Marc was a good minister: he was a good administrator, but he was not very comfortable as a politician, perhaps as much as I am.;. I would be surprised if he would be salled upon to play a big role.

Like me, I don’t expect to play a very big role because I’m not a candidate. What is your estimation of the validity of the chaigee of kickbacks involved with government contracts.? Chretien: I have been a minister nineteen years and I ought to tell you that as far as I’m concerned, the system is pretty good... You can dig into my life and there is no skeleton in my. closet. You have never read anything about me for the nineteen years I was a minister. I have no problem because the offers were not very numerous. , What happened to the Tories was ‘.when they came back they did not know that. They believed the public belief and when they tried, they got trapped very quickly - caught very quickly. The system is quite honest. It’s helping a lot of politicians to be honest because the press is around watching. What detrimental scenarios do you Bee arising in the federalprovincial telationehip because of the Meech Lake Accord? Chretien: 1’m afraid the Charter of Rights might be jeopardized... I think that the fact that the judge would be virtually appointed to the supreme court by the provinces will make them political footballs that they should not be... If you have a judge who was virtually appointed by the prtivince of Alberta and there is a case of resources and you vote against Alberta, you will be lynched in Alberta.,. The people will -not look at him as a judge, they will look at him as’a representative of Alberta. So, I don’t like it. The fact that eventually the Senators will be appointed virtually.,. by the provinces that’s another problem. They will just represent the provincial government interests, not necessadly the provincial interests.., The decentralization of POWers too, will make the rich pro-

vinces richer and the poor provinces poorer. The nature of the federation was to have a strong enough federal government to redistribute the wealth from one part of Canada to the other. What is the chief economic problem that Canada now faces? Chretien: Inequality in the society. It’s an economic problem; it is not a social problem... To mulch concentration of wealth in some parts of Canada, mainly Ontario. With the resolve that I came from centre town of Toronto to here today and it was virtually in one town... And the poor people pay for that... My home town which used to be a very piosperous electrochemical city in the thirties and fourties - now it’s under-utilized. We have hospitals that are not full; we have empty schools... it’s a waste. It would be much cheaper for the society to have the jobs there and where you can buy a house for $50,000 then to force a guy to come to work in Toronto where he will have a shack for $150,~~~). This is a very, very preoccupying problem...

My wife tells me “Jean, you have the b6st of both. worlds, ever-ybody thinks you wbuld be good and you don’t have to proveX’ Of course, everybody wants to be in a big city; they think there is more money there. But what is the use to make a big salary when you have to spend, anyway, three-quarter of it on your house. It’s just a mirage. You own a half million dollar house and so what! You are better sometimes to be in a city where you have a five-bedroom house that would cost you $100,000 atid you have $400,000 in you pocket. In 1994

Indirect funding an &sue

Catholic colleges form student organization i by Iohn MacFarlane Imprint etaff

Ontario Catholic colleges plan to meet early next month to draft a constitution for their newly formed “Catholic College Student Caucus.” University affiliated colleges from Waterloo, Western and U of T, which represent over 8,000 students across the province, originally met in late June to discuss indirect funding of Catholic colleges. Although organization chairperson Dan Cushenan feels indirect funding is “still a major debate on that subject issue,” was postponed in order to proceed with the logistics of the group’s formation, The group is ehthusiastic that a unified organization will give Catholic colleges a higher profile and effective lobbying clout. Also, says David Fisher who represented St. Jer&ne’s at the meeting, the organization can meet “to discuss our role as Catholic Students on university campuses.” The association is still in its infancy but Fisher sees great potential with the opening of communication lines between the colleges. “We can address those issues concerning the Catholic students including abortion, birth control, AIDS and other non-educational issues,” says Fisher. Cushenan, who is also the VP of student affairs at Western’s King’s College, says the group has the initial support of the Ontario Federation of Students. It has also received “good feedback” from the Ministry of Colleges and Universities and some other members of the provincial cabinet. In addition, he has re-

ceived inquiries about the organization from Quebec and Manitoba. The group plans to meet after each college has elected one member to the caucus. This is expected to be done by early October. As for the St. Jerome’s spot, Fisher says “I’m crossing my fingers, t hope I can Fe the representative.”

The indirect funding issue still seems to be a trouble area. Cushenan calls it “discriminatory against Catholic Colleges” but Fisher feels the current setup is acceptable. Under this system, Catholic colleges do not receive direct funding from the provincial government. The money is instead funded directly to the Universities which only then

allot money to ‘their affiliated colleges. . The current affilia&n setup was also deemed acceptable. An affiliated college, such as St. Jerome’s at UW, waives its rights to grant graduate degrees in return for the us’e of the university’s facilities, says Fisher; The university in turn benefits from the use of the smaller, mure per-

sonal offer.

Queen’s stu.dents to set up $800,000 endowment fund by Scott Murray Queen’s University’s student government the Alma Mater Society [AMS), is presently finalizing a five year plan to .build a $~uo,w~ endowment fund. The interest earned from sucha fund will reach approximately $70,000 annually. It is believed to be the first concept of its kind to be tried in Ontario universities. Tom Wells, Vice-President for Operations at Queen’s, says the interest earned from the fund will be used to either increase the AMS operating budget or provide a supplement in times of deficit. The annual interest would not be used to replace current fund-raising activities but rather to serve as a reserve source of funds. In contrast to the UW Federa‘Con of Students policy of subsidizing particular student services with profits from other Fed businesses, Queen’s AMS will use surpluses from their ten

student businesses to build their proposed endowment fund. UW Fed Vice-President (Operations and Finance) Shane Carmichael said a similar fund is not planned at UW. Instead, a capital expenditures fund will likely- -. be established. The UW - concept fund, said Carmichael, will contain “money ear-marked for specific large capital expenditures,” such as improvements to _the Campus Centre, Fed Hall, or new buildings. In Carmichael’s view, the Student Council will be responsible for making specific decisions about funding priorities. The upcoming Student Life Project report is expected to impact the future direction taken by the Federation of Students on this issue. If a shortfall shpuld occur in the Federation of Students operating budget, the interest earned on the fund’s capital could &e used to meet such a deficit; otherwise, all interest would be re-

invested., It is enpected that the use- of interest to balance an operating budget would be temporarv. --Y One possible cause of a shortfall in the Federation’s budget could be a general decline of revenue from sales in Federation o erated businesses. For examp Pe, alcohol sales could fall at campus pubs because of an increase of underage students on campus with the elimination of grade 13 and a heightenbd -awareness of the dangers of alcohol abuse. The AMS and the UW Feds are pianning different methods for handling surplus funds generated by their various businesses. Only time will prove which ap-

Two Koreas

Division by Claude


BOMBAY, India, (THIRD WORLD NETWORK/IPS) After the Philippine revolution of February 1986, the advancing course of democracy in Asia has swung northqastward, according to two p&hinent Korean intellectuals.*%: I Prof. Churig Hyun-Back and Prof. Lee Sam Yul of two South Korean universities spoke of new and dramatic trends they said could help the divided nation become one again. Both werie addressing participants at a workshop here soonsored by the international Commission of Jurists, the Hong Kong-based Asian Regional,Exchange for New Alternatives (ARENA) and the United Nations University (UNU) in Tokyo. Lee noted,that for the outside world, South Korea is seen principally as a dynamic model of economic growth. The country’s Gross National Product [GNP) increased nearly six times be.tween 1962 and 198% And by 1985, South Korea’s annual per capital income had reached $2,000. Korea’s middle-class - which comprised the population that had “made it” was now a solid conservative force, grateful to the economic miracle and worried about instabilit y. But recent events, such as efforts led by persistent student agitators to reunify the two Koreas and massive strikes by labour unions, have broken the

The Korean atademics argued that the division of Korea into “North” and “South” was a c assic example of how the worl a is still polarized by superpower intervention, and how despite the clamor for decolonization and fr&do’m, some countries - only exist on terms set by outsiders. “Korea has never had an independent status, it has always existed to suit the needs of others,” Chung said. Until 1945,. Korea served as a front line for expanding Japanese capitalism, and since that time it has been split in two pieces to suit the strategic goals of the superpowers. “This is the main problem of our nation,” Chung said. “The subjugation of our country to foreign powers and the division of our country.” The call for unification has come not from the governments but from students, church organizations and ifit elledtuals. But these groups have forcefully made their case, and now there may not be a turning back. Lee said there was a major shift in the’ preoccupation of South Koreans today, and that unification tias now the priority in the agenda of all non-party political groups. Earlier, was under

by Marc Brm&mki Imprint staff “Nuclear medicine, industrial technologies and a clean efficient power source are the legacies of Canada’snuclear industry,” -Rit a Dionne-Marsolais Vice President, Information Canadian Nuclear Association To expect that an industry providing such benefits would not be worried about its survival seems reasonable, but, despite the benefits, the nuclear industry in Canada faces decline unless it can manipulate public opinion in its favour. Only if public opinion is swayed will the politicians who ultimately control the industry not be afraid to offer the industry their full support. The Canadian Nuclear Association (CNAJ has now completed the first year of its five-year, multimillion dollar, public education campaign. Agcording to the CNA’s media and program director Ray Windsor’, the campaign was designed to “talk to the people of Canada about what the reality is.” Yet in the words of a leaked CNA memo dated April 28, 1987, the association mounted the campaign “in order to regain political clout .“.

Public support


for the has pIummetedT


That the nuclear industry is just shopping for more leverage in Ottawa is not surprising. The latest Gallup poll on nuclear power generation, taken after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, found only 23 per cent of those polled in favour of increasing nuclear generation. Seventyseven per cent of Canadians opposed any further development. Although Windsor claims three quarters of Canadians support nuclear energy, the CNA memo itself pegs public support at only 15 per cent of the population. Plummeting public support is not the nuclear industry’s sole worry. In North America, Ontario’s Darlington station is the only station which began construction after 1975 that has not been cancelled; there are no plans to build more nuclear generating stations in Canada, Only this summer, activists in Long island, New York managed to shut down the fully operational Shoreham nuclear generating station, forcing the private utility that built the complex to sell the station to the state of New York for $1. The international situation does not differ greatly. Cory Aquino cancelled the Philippines’_ only reactor; Austria completed its first reactor, and is now seeking customers for the parts; and Sweden, as reliant on nuclear power for its electricity as Ontario (close to 50 per cent), has scheduled the shutdown of two nuclear power plants and will have no nuclear dependency by the year

the Atomic Energy Control Act. This act licenses all nuclear activities and facilities in Canada. “The main emp‘hasis is on education,” notes Windsor of the CNA campaign. CNA advertisements bearing cute headings like “Core Issue,” “Small Wonder,” and ‘Seeking to Generate a Better Understanding” have run on television, and in national magazines including Maclean’s, Chatelaine, Saturday Night, and Time. The CNA has set up a tollfree line allowing viewers and readers to order information from the association; material on energy issues and nuclear power has been made available to teachers and schools across Canada. To push the industry line, .the CNA has drawn from association members to establish a speakers’ bureau.. These four elements of the campaign .are as much as the CNA will admit to in public. In July 1988 a document was leaked to environmental groups including Energy Probe of Toronto which contained a summary of the CNA campaign and a statement of its projec’ted costs for 1988. Analysis of the amounts of money invested in various parts ofthe program and comparison of. the intended 1~88 expenditures with those of 1987 reveal the true thrust of the CNA’s “public information program.” This year the CNA will spend $3,888,888 for “Advertising” on a program whose “ma.ifi emphasis is on education.” This represents an 82 per cent increase over the 1987 figure of $1,671,000; however, the money spent on’what the leaked program summary calls “Education” will drop 22 per cent from $51,000 in 1987 to $40,000 in 1988. Not only has the advertising budget nearly doubled, but the nq&ey to be spent on “Media Relatio per cent from $12,000 in in 1988. The entire cost in 1988 is $4,260,000

The importance of political clout to the nuclear industry cannot be underestimated, if only because the taxpayer is the primary investor in nuclear energy. Two federal Crown corporations, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited [AECL], responsible for the design, development and sale of the CANDU reactor, and Eldorado Nuclear Incorporated, involved in uranium mining and processing are two of the biggest firms in the Canadian nuclear industry, Ontario Hydro, which built and operates over 20 reactors, and the Saskatchewan Mining Development Corporation, which will soon be merged with Eldorado by the federal government and sold, are provincially owned and controlled corporations: The extent of taxpayer investment in the nuclear industry was documentedin an Energy, Mines and Resources Canada paper of November 1987 entitled a Background “Energy in Canada: Paper.’ The paper lists Canadian ownership and control of the uranium industry in 1985 at 83 and 69 per cent respectively+ Of the $247 million spent research

and development


Canada in the same year, 80 per cent came from the federal and provincial governments. Government invofvement continues far beyond funding. The industry is reg-, ulated by the Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB) under the authority of


tion on nuclear power. Windsor said the CNA was aiming its program at young adult Canadians: “the kind of people we want to reach.” As the Canadian nuclear industry consists largely of Crown corporations, the most likely source for themillions of .dollars needed to fund the CNA campaign is the public trough. According to an April 1987 memo, the campaign would be funded at $4 million per year for five years “largely from Ontario Hydro and AECL,” However, Ontario Hydro’ssharewasdeniedtheCNAafter the provincial NDP raised the matter at Queen’s Park and Premier Peterson promised there would be “no advocacy.” The NDP’s question period challenge resulted from Energy Probe’s efforts to keep $2 million of Ontario Hydro money out of the campaign after learningof the program through an Ontario Energy Board hearing into Hydro expenditures.

obby, s “to have employees y supporters form an identifiable group supporting the Information Program.” The possible credibility lent by a supportive and seemingly independent organization to an education campaign promoting an unpopular industry would not be lost on the members of the association charged with selling that industry to the public. The leaked summary includes strategies on media relations to have, as one l result t “four positive op-ed articles published annually.” This goal is to be accomplished by developing “a media l

brainwashed by a special interest group that’s spendiqg your money, then, as far as I’m concerned, you’ve reached new heights of outrage,” says Rubin. The level of support for the nuclear industry within the federal agencies responsible for funding and regulation does not mirror current Canadian publit opinion. Rat her, the ministries and boards that cause the nuclear industry to exist in Canada are dominated by the 13 to 15 per cent pro-nuclear fringe of the Canadian public. “That’s one of the reasons why your

Andwithout the taxpa m’s money, the investments wou 7d vanish as being just a bad business pro osition,” Rubin asserts. and the governments $I e industry, nuclear corps, did have reason to worry. On January 131988, the Federal Standing Committee on Environment and Forestry, made up of MPs from all federal parties, released its report on nuclear wastes titled The Eleventh Hour. The report, adopted unanimously by the MPs, cant ains 15 recommendations, two of which threatened to dramatically alter the nuclear industry. Recommendation 3 proposed the inOn July 23, 1988, the Globe and Mail troduction of a number of reforms at the reported that Goldfarb Consultants of AECB.

board’s responsibility from Energy, Mines and Resources to Environment Canada. Recommendation 15 proposed a moratorium on the construction of nuclear power plants in Canada “until the people of Canada have agreed on an acceutable solution for -the disposal Lf high-level radioactive waste.” The government response, tabled in June by the Minister of Energy, Mines and resources, Marcel Masse, indicated the level of resistance met by the report in the federal bureaucracy. The government supported the intent of the third recommendation’s consult ation mechanism, supported in part the intent of a modified AECB membership, but did not accept the transfer of AECB responsibility to Environment Canada. Regarding Recommendation 15, the government was “not prepared,.. to im-

pose a moratorium on the construction of nuclear power plants in Canada.” Despite the reprieve, the industry must still have felt threatened. In July 1988, documents revealing that AECL had been spying on opponents were leaked to environmental groups across the country. Organizations including Energy. Probe, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility, and Probe International accused the Crown corporation of espionage and subversion. The 4%page report prepared for AECL by Ridley Research Group of Toronto (whose existence is denied by AECL, and whose number is not listed with Bell] proposed the creation of a “pseudo-environment al group” so that AECL could access the Canadian Environmental Network’s computer database. The report called that database, with its 1,200 members, the “greatest single national rallying point on nuclear issues.” Windsor explained the rationale behind the CNA campaign in these terms: “it was time, the industry felt, to talk to the people of Canada about what the reality is’ - what’s the truth, what is the information, what are the facts about nuclear energy in Canada?” Strangely enough this same industry, so interested in the truth that it mounts a multimillion dollar public education campaign to s read the word, resorts to 4 a program of %irty tricks to discredit its opponents who, by implication, must be spreading lies, Rubin summarizes the Crown corporation’s efforts in this way: “AECL doesn’t seem to give a damn about its image as spending taxpayers’ money on propaganda, and they figure they’ll win more from the propaganda value of the ads themselves.” The truth, according to Windsor, comes in the ten nuclear fact sheets available to anyone who requests them from the ’ CNA’s toll-free line. These sheets demonstrate the difference between propaganda and education, primarily by what they fail to discuss. The information sheets cover topics such as reactor operation and safety, nuclear wastes and waste disposal, and the health benefits of radiation and food irradiation. “Nuclear reactors are very safe... it is absolutely impossible for a nuclear power plant to explode like an atomic bomb” - so begins the explanation of reactor safety. The statement “an estimated 13,000,000 years of added human life have been made possible through cobalt-60 therapy” answers the question of how bike.




to medi-

The sheets are filled with statistics and stories on nuclear exports, reactor performance, Canada’s leading role in world uranium production and isotope technologies, and the thousands of people employed by these activities. Food








NNG OUR LIiGACY irradiation ip described in glowing terms as “a process that can safely preserve food and eliminate bacteria, insects and micro-organisms” and permit“a better choice for the discriminating Canadian consumer.” The governments of both Canada-and Thailand must share this assessment, for they have entered into an agreement under which Canada will pay for a $4.4 million food irradiator being built in Thailand. Although Canadian Health and Welfare regulations permit only the irradiatYon of potatoes, onions, wheat and spices, Canada has pledged to help Thailand market irradiated fruit and shrimp. The CNA information sheet claims “irradiated food is as safe as food preserved with other techniques like freezing or canning.” However, after 40 years, debate still surrounds the issue of irradiation safety, and many questions remain over the contention that irradiation does not harm the chemiqal composition and nutritional value of treated foods. Groups around the coun-. try, such as Vancouver’s Coalit ion, to Stop Fopd Irradiation, the Canadian Entironmental Law Association, and the. International Institute of Concern for Public Health are mobilizing to rally public opinion against the process. Irene Kock of Oshawa’s Nuclear Awareness Project is concerned about hoti the introduction of AECL irradiation technology into a third world nation like Thailand would affect small scale food producers. The need for foreign exchange to pay off debt forces developing nations to make goads available for export. In many cases the bulk Df exports are agricultural products which must pass quarantine barriers and pesticide bans to be sold in Europe and North America. Irradiated foods would easily cross these barriers if their consumption were legalized to create a market, a market created to support western technologies transplanted into regions where economic considerations may override health and environmental concerns: “it has a lot to do with profit” Kock remarks. Kock feels multinational agribusinesses would buy up large tracks of lhnd to grow pineapples+ coffee beans and other I the displa

rial of value which then goes straight into the nuclear weapons program. They don’t know that, and you certainly won’t find it out from the CNA commercials, or even fkom~phoning the CNA, because, of course, it doesn’t strengthen their myth that there’s no connection.” Documents obtained iTy the United States from the Department of Energy under the Freedom of Information Act proved the connection, and the AECB later admitted to the shipments. In a letter of Jtine 12,1985, addressed to the Townships Peace Group of Georgeville, Quebec, Hugh Spence, the AECB’s chief of public information, wrote of the American enriched uranium used in the Chalk River experimental reactors: “the United Stat es does not in fact require the fuel’s return after its use in Canadian research reactors. Howevey, the buyer, AECL, has chosen



no weapons

Rubin puts it this way: “Physically it certainly gi?es into their bombs, there’s no question about that. But there are leg91 fictions in Ottawa and Washington and elsewhere that say by the timeit gets into their bombs it’s not ours anymore.” Canada had halted all sales of uranium to the European Economic Community in 1977 because Britain and France, both weapons states, could not adequately guarantee non-weapons use of the imported material. Sales resumed one year later. Knelman writm ‘Y-t would be exc&ingly naive to believe that Canadian uranium is not being processed and reprocessed to manufacture weaponsgrade Uranium-235 and Plutonium239." Yet Windsor maint’ains “any of the uranium-that we sell abroad, any of the facilities, or technologies, or material that we sell abroad.,. will never be used for nuclear weapons purposes.” ’ To pretend that not one atom of Caxiadian source uranium had any but peaceful uses [and without discussing the oxymoron “peaceful atom”) would not clean Canada’s hands’ of’ the nuclear arms race. If Canada is exporting more uranium than any other naiion, and that uranium is used solely for peaceful purposes, then Canada is freeing for the production of nuclear weapons more ur-


from the start to send it back to the States for reprocessing.” F.H, Knelman, in his 1987 book Ame& ica, God and the Bomb asserts that these shipments violate the Nuclear Cooperation Agreement betwken Canada and the U.S. because the Savannah River “plant produces pluionium and tritium for the military.” Canada would have to stop returning the spent fuel if it insisted that the material be used only for peaceful purposes. Chalk River is not the only connection ry and old its

Asks Ru bin: “are we making it easier for them (the U.S., Britain and France] to keep the nuclear arms race going7 The answer, obviously, hell yes.” Canada’s current uranium export palicies encourwe states to seek nuclear weapons, alidto seek recognition of that new power. Rutin asserts: “once they have nuclear weapons, and are recognized as being weapons states, then we give them most favourable nation treatment.” Without Canadian uranium, nations such as France (almost 70 per cent dependent on nuclear power for its electticity) and the United States would have less uranium for both civilian and military purposes: Canada’s willingness to make up for uranium shortages in weapons states stifles national debate on the merits of building 1,000 new warheads or keeping the lights on in .Paris or in Chicago. Rubin believes it would be entirely justifiable for Canada to prohibit sales of uranium to weapons states. Such action would signal to the world an end to the acceptance and promotion, by Canada, of the nuclear threat, By inviting nations like Australia to join the embargo, Canada’s actions might finally begin to mirror the policy statements of its leaders.

The international market for nuclear material is not limited to uranium. Ontario Hydro plans to begin operating its tritium removal facility at the Darlington station sometime in 1988. Tritium is a radioactive rebidue found in the heavy water used in redactors. AECB approval for shipments of tritiated heavy water to travel on Highway 40% from the Pick- ering station io the removal tacility was made official last week; trucks will move five loads of the radioactive water weekly on the highway in’what Hydro calls “very strong containers.” Windsor could only say that some extracted tritium will be soid to a company in P.E.1. for use in runway lights

and as emergency iighting. Windsor also admits tritium is used in bombs However, he maintains “that’s not thf purpose of the tritium that’s extractec from Canada’s nuclear reactors, be. cause, as you know, Canada is a nonweapons state.” 8Almost every bomb ir the U.S.


cant ains


in al

Jeast one place, and in as many as three ’ An export license _allowing Ontar;c Hydro to sell tritium to the U.S. is cur. rently under federal government con. sideration. The amount of tritiun: intended for export, gccording to Knelman, is in excess of the total quantity used in research and non-weapons’programs in the U.S. Consequently, “therg is every reason to believe that Canadian tritium will soon be contributing an essential component in the great majority of U.S. nuclear weapons.” From Windsor’s perspective, Canadian nuclear activities are governed by the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the multi-national agreemenl ratified by Canada, and established ta prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons. This summer the Canadian Press reported on two Ministry of Defence papers that acknowledged the planned purchase of a nuclear submarine flee1 could “undermine” the NPT, which must be reviewed in 1990. Nevertheless, Windsor sees little but benefit in this prospective purchase: “The Canadian nuclear industry supports the submarine program because the Defense Minister said 65 per cent of the entire program, over the 25 year life of the program.., will be built in Canada. The nuclear industry has the wherewithal tddai to build those reactors.” While the government claims the sub purchase is necessary to protect Canadian sovereignty in the North, the fleet may also serve to keep the reactor construction wing of Canada’s nuclear industry alive in the face of stagnant demand for CANDU reactors in Canada, and overseas. Twenty-five years is time enough to bring about a swing in public opiinion, and time enough to “regain political clout.” That length of time may well be needed as long as politicians throughout the world define, and regulatory boards permit policies as dangerous as the shipment of plutonium from Europe to Japan by airplane. A treaty between the U.S. and Japan gives permission f6r flights carrying over 200 kilograms of plutonium - plutonium possibly made from Cahadian source uranium - to fly over t!ie north pole and down the Bering Strait to the Pacific and Japan up to twice each month. The U.S.-owned plutonium, now in European reprocessing facilities, has been extracted from spent fuel from Japanese reactors. For the time being; Canada has made known its objection to having these flights use Canadian airspace. But as Rubin points out, despite the objection, the plutonium will be flown upwind of British Columbia, the Yukon and the North West Territories, “upwind of all of us,” and because “somebody is flying poison high in the air upwind of you... Canada is certainly going to be placed at grave risk with no offsetting benefits, period,” The risk is immense, Plutonium is extremely toxic, In its aerosol form, the form it would take as a result of a high altitude explosion, “one hundred kilograms of Plutonium-239 represents 100 billion potential lung cancers when lodged in the lungs ‘as microscopic particles,” reports Knelman. c The scope of Canada’s other nuclear legacies cannot be fully explored in two ages of newsprint: no mention has Ee en made of issues including nuclear wastea, reactor safety and risk, uranium mining and its impact on Native peoples and their land, and the transfer of information, expertise, and technology between Ontario Hydro and nuclear weapons labs in the United States. Of course, the full legacy may never be known as the federal government shrouds nuclear exports in secrecy, and as time prevents us from assessing the full impact tif radiation hazards and nuc_lear wastes on future generations. An industry desperate to justify its existence to disapproving


at their

own expense is another legacy of nuclear power in Canada. Yet perhaps the CNA advertising campaign is a sign that what grew from the seeds of the Manhattan Project and Hiroshima is now dying.

Art Bergmann~looks like he’s paid his dues on his trek down the rock ‘n’ roll highway; if fadial lines could talk, the weathered faces of Art and his bassist could provide enough sordid memoirs to fill a Jackie Collins trilogy. The tough, strapping pop-rock of the Bergmann Band had the unenviable task of openi?ng for, and trying to upstage those young upstarts, 54-40, at Fed Hall last Friday. Battling a bad mix that seemed determined to drown the keyboards out of existence, Bergmann’s show was one of high, if forced, energy, incomprehensible lyrics (but who pays attention to the words at a concert anyway?), and an ongoing attempt to alienate the entire audience. I don’t know, maybe there were a few too many French braids and Roots sweatshirts around the audience for a hard-nosed, working class stiff like Art, but his obnoxious stage manner didn’t make a whole posse of friends. Just play your songs and quit being such a miserable bastard and maybe you’ll get somewhere, Art. As for 54-40, by the time they left the stage, I had heard at least three people refer to. them as a Canadian UZ.

sions of Take My Hand and 1 Go Blind were given the full grunge and distortion trgatment, while the power-chord riffs of Baby Ran and Come Here reached a brutality of near assault proportions. Perhaps things were lacking in wildness and unpredictability, with Osborne and guitarist Phil Comparelli preferring to play the responsible rock star as opposed to the ones who ripped all the strings out of their guitars the last time they played here, but the power of their show was undeniable. Unfortunately, the brevity of the concert suggests the derogatory side of the UZ comparison arrogance and a growing self-consciousness of their role as rock ‘n’ roll visionaries. A single hour and a few cursory nods of the “This one’s called...” variety to the audience end Neil and the boys decided it was Miller time.

Now that’s what I call quite good is an appropriate synopsis of thecareer of six dudes who managed to sell 150 copies of their on1 number one single in New Zea Yand, Unafraid of their stumbles, The Housemartins have seen fit to include some really crappy tunes. Everyday’s the Same was written in 1983, but (according to the album liner notes)+ “it wasn’t until the lsth of October

, ‘87 that the band actually became desperate enough to record it.” The idea behind this &cord is a documentation of the biorhvthms of The Housemartins. S;bmetimes they don’t line up just right. Especially in New Zealand. I’m terribly happy that it’s not chronological. My religion does not allow me to believe in evolution. , . I also found the real driving influence for releasing this record. If you plot all the locations of the recording studios that were used by the band on a map, and then join the dots, you’d get a great representation of a little bird. This is better than listening to it backwards to hear Saint Poet of the Miraculous Eyeball’s grim sermon on bedbugs and theological calculus, As a film, it would probably win an award for best docu-comedic animation. If you don’t currently possess any records by The Housemartins, put aside worth of beer two pitchers money and invest it in this disjointed musical movie.

Every so often you come across a band that’s so bad that it makes other bands seem great in comparison. Frozen Ghost is one such band. Not only is their music forgettable, but their lyrics are laughable as well.. Admittedly, Frozen Ghost tries hard and thev do seem to care about the world’s i&, Unfortunately their lyrics are so insipid that you can’t help feeling sorry for the band. How about the following in Round and Round: -. Why oh why is love so unkind Why does Iove moke us so insecure Why is love so many questions Why should Iove have so nuu~y conditions What is love, what is love? In Step by Step there’s beautiful Iyrics like: Hand in hand like guns and bibles War for peace seems like 0 contradiction What is right and wrong , What is fact and fiction I can see Frozen Ghost appealing t,o young listener? who have a budding sense of social awareness - a kind of Oh wow the world isn’t perfect is it? ap- I preach, that’s both cliched and laughingly childish.

Like New Order’s Substance compilation of last year, this Joy Division retrospective is a fascinating chronicle of a band’s evolution - not to mention the de-evolution of Joy Division into New Order and their rapid artistic decline since Curtis’ death.

He was the band’s personality, the thing that set them apart from the rest of the post-punk pack; if you need any further proof of this, just compare the depths of misery they plumbed with Atmosphere with the mechanical facelessness of Bizarre Love Triangle.

Imprint, Friday, September 23! 1988 -




by Paul Done Imprint staff The one saving virtue of Morrissey’s mediocre solo LP is that we haven’t had to slog through - as many Smiths deathsploitation re-issues and re-packages as niight have been expected. As a coda to a career bursting with wonderful singles, better bsides and spotty LPs, Rank captures The Smiths at a specific moment of their career - a far wiser plan than attempting to sum up their careelz with a necessarily inqomplete compilatidn. The S..miths, as they appear on this LP, recorded during the Queen is Dead Tour, bolstered by the second guitar. of Craig Gannon came closer to being a true rock band than at any other point in their existence, Thankfully, the self-mockery and wordsmithery of Morrissey kept The Smiths miles away from sinking to the crotch-grabbing histrionics of rock monsterdom.


Containing material spanning their first single Hand in Glove to their, at that time, most recent Ask, Rank focuses on songs which generally disappointed on vinyl, but which are ten times better here, performed live. In particular, the opening track The Queen is Dead explodes o’ut of the speakers with a jet-fuel intensity completely missing from the studio version. Likewise,

who moaned his way through Heaven Knows I’m Miserable NOW.

In general, The* Smiths ‘are light years more celebratory and incandescent than they ever were on any of their singles or LPs. Perhaps it’s the cheers of the adoring crowd but, for a few fleeting mom,ents it’s hard to believe that this is the same man

Rank is another essential artifact from the best band of the ’80s; they put intelligence and a sense of humour back onto the music charts. Further, they made it acceptable for people other than hippy women folk singers to be sensitive in their songwriting.

The ECM Sampler offers well known jazz artists such as Carla Bley and Keith Jarrett as well as lesser known artists (unkown bjr me at least), Steve Tibbits and Bifi Frisell, The material range from the new age music of the Bill Frisell band to 4AD-type of Michael meapderings Mantler. If you’re interested in jazz, this sampler is a good way to explore the varied expressions L of the genre.

Hard rock, metal, and all their variations must be getting very popular, if WEA has decided to sign Overkill. My first memory of Overkill was seeing the bands’ product listed with the rest of the SST stuff on the inside of a Husker Du album. Instead of the head-on hardcore I expected, Overkill sounds more like B Judas Priest cover band. There’s nothing exciting going on here. The band plays fast, but with little emotion, While there’s no juvenile sexism or tales about their drinking feats, their attempts at social criticism are both cliched and unconvincing.

To Make lxlve To A Negro By Dany Laferriere Coach House Press 117 pages

by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff No, this isn’t the latest -in the Time-Life series of do-it-yourself manuals+ but the literary debut of Dany Laferriere, an exjournalist from Haiti, who, upon noticing his colleagues were disappearing under the Duvalier regime, moved to Montreal. How To Make Love To A Negro is a wild and ribald examination of the motives behind beautiful, educated white girls from well-todo Montreal neighbourhoods who go out of their way to shack up with black would-be mystics and writers, such as the narrator, who live in the sleaziest slums of La Belle Province. Like many first novels+ How To... seems to lose sight of its objectives a little more than half way through, and wanders about a no man’s land between deciding whether to be a short novel or a long short story. But what a first half! There is so much breathless energy crackling on the pages that you can imagine the guy sitting feverishly at his beat-up typewriter+ sweat pouring down his brow in torrents and circles forming under his arms trying to get every last word down on paper in a caffeineted daze. And such barefaced+ sly, hilarious vulgarity: During the seventies, America got off on Red. White girls practically moved onto Indian reserva-

If the pictures shqwn during the exclusive Imprint preview are any indication, it’s probably worth setting up a cot in the Princess lobbv until next Friday. On Sunday at 9:20 Tutt, will be showing My Friend Ivan Lopshin, by Alexei Guerman. A sad and sensitive tale of police chief Lapshin set in the 193os, it tells the story of Lapshin’s pursuit of the notorious Sovolyov I

gang, and of his tinrequited love for a local actress, Natasha. She, unfortunately, is mad about Lapshin’s best friend, a jourqalist whose wife has just passed away. The warmest scenes in My Frierta Ivan Lapshin take place in Lapshin’s boarding house, which he shares with a couple of his friends, one of whom has a young son. Though the conditions are austere, Lapshin and his friends enjoy each others company imm%sely, playing chess and clowning around.

Blues bash blundering by Mike McGraw Imprint staff Sometimes a hole is just too chp to dig out of. The Waterloo Warriors foot ball team discovered this last Saturday at Seagram’s Stadium as they were clobbered, 24-2, by the Toronto Varsity Blues. The loss runs the Warriors four-year old futility streak to 25 games (30 if you count exhibition games), and leaves them at O-Z for 1988. Meanwhile, the Blues sport an unblemished 2-9 record and are tied for first place in the OUAA, Talk about starting off on the wrong foot. In the game’s first six minutes, UW dropped a kickoff, had two punts blocked and threw one interception. This comedy of errors resembled a sports bloopers video and allowed the Blues to take a 14-O lead which they never relinquished. “It was just bad special teams,” commented disgruntled Waterloo head coach Chuck McMann, “We worked on special teams all week because we knew Toronto was going to rush. This is all it was. Our punt team just killed us. We will correct that this week. If we don’t, there will be new guys on th& special teams.” It wasn’t as if the Blues’ offence left a path of destruction they didn’t score a point in the afternoon. Toronto’s special teams came to the rescue, racking up all 24 points. Pivots Matt MacKay (Z-for-71 and rookie Jason Gilbert (&for8] combined for a meagre 87 passing yards. The Blues managed to scrape out just 185offensive yards on the day, and squeezed out nine first downs. Waterloo’s defence, led by hitmen Dave Shaw and Larry Vaughn, throttled Toronto’s sloth-like attack. McMann was pleased with the defence; although, he still noticed some faults. “We went over the game films, qnd found some little mistakes on our defence. We’re pretty happy with our defence -we’ve got guys with good experience like Vaughn and Shaw to lead us.” Statistically fence shone in opening day Western. The 144 yards and

, the Waterloo ofcomparison to the catastrophe at Warriors amassed 12 first downs, as

starting quarterback &ian Lenart went 9-of-17 for 99 yards. Replacement pivot Tom Sheidow came on in relief and turned in a respectable performance, going J-of-12 for 31 yards. On the ground, Orville Beckford galloped for 39 yards on 15 carries, Yet despite the statistical triumph, the anemic Waterloo offenfailed once again to mount a consistent attack. “Our offence was worse than in the Western game,” commented a frustrated McMann. “We had more yards and more first downs, but we also made more mistakes than against. Western. I did feel we blocked better this week.” McMann believes the offence is suffering from a lack of consistency, “Some guys play well on one down and the other guys are a letdown: Then on the next down the guys who were a letdown play well, and the other guys are a letdown. We have to be consistent.”



The way the game started, the Blues might -have thought Christmas arrived early. Underneath the tree, they found a giftwrapped 14-0 lead. On the opening kickoff, return man Mark Loisel bobbled the ball into the end zone, where he was forced *to concede a single point, On third down of very next drive, punter Jim Harding met a wall of rushing blue jerseys. His punt was blocked and the Blues recovered on Waterloo’s 280yard line. Andy Astrom later booted a 27-yard field goal to give Toronto a 4-0 lead. Less than a minute later, Harding lined up to punt again. Lightning struck twice, as his punt was blocked by rookie Ted Temerlzoglou, who picked up the ball and ran it back for a touchdown, Astrom’s convert made’ it 11-O. Fate wasn’t finished with Wat’erloo yet. With a little over five minutes gone, Te@erlzoglou picked off a Lenart pass, putting the Blues at the ~Waterloo 280 yard line. Astrom added another field goal to widen the gap to lQ0,

Uw’s Harding unleashed a booming *punt which sent return man Darryl * Devonish reeling backwards to his %yard line. When he got hold of the ball, he sprinted 94 yards for a touchdown. Astrom’s conversion gave the Blues a 21-O lead, which they took to the locker room at half-time. Despite the score, Waterloo out-gained Toronto+ 55 yards to 48 in the first half. After a scoreless third quarter which had all the excitement of a match, the Warriors finally broke the ice in the fourth. Harding boomed a 54-yard rocket into the end zone for a single point, sending the crowd into-pandemonium, and closing the gap to 21-l. The Warriors threatened again when they recovered a fumble on Toronto’s &&yard line. With Sheidow at quarterback+ they moved the ball to the 29, but came up empty.

UW’s Grant Robinson, playing at number five, defeated league president Tom Craig of Guelph in a closely contested match, 8-1. At number four, Trent Haase,

former, With the Warriors offence coughing and sputtering, Harding was forced to punt the ball away 11 times. Even with the two blocks+ he managed to notch a 8%yard average for the afternoon. The Toronto rushers were so relentless they twice pummelled Harding and were whistled for roughing the kicker. “He sped up a little bit since last week,” commented McMann. “The blocked punts weren’t his fault .+’ McMann also hinted that Sheidow will see more time at the pivot position in weeks to come.

Sheidow. was sharp “Sheidow didn’t look too bad ‘out there, we’ll give him some more playing - time,” said McMann. “But I won’t make the decision on who will start (at r

Guelph this weekend) until later this week.‘+ McMann still contends that some of his players don’t believe they can win, “Defensively, they really believed they could stop Toronto. Offensively, we’re still doubting ourselves, Some guys weren’t giving one-hundred per cent. ’ We’re still going to be positive, we have to win a couple of games to help recruiting.+* He also feels that tomorrow’s (Saturday) game at Guelph will be Waterloo’s biggest challenge to date. “Guelph will be the toughest team we’ve played so far.” WARRIOR NOTES: One silver lining in last Saturday’s cloud of doom was a SO-yard pass play from Lenart to- Steve Ha&.

Hockey rage by Peter Dedee Imprint staff



There is something perverse about hockey. It’s a muggy September evening. Tugging a double set of glass c&or, open, f cross the Arctic cirAthletics and obsession are palpable about the refrigerated barn located in the scarred suburban wasteland of the north campus. Sixty-odd youthful men form a rough circle outside the building on the torn up turf facing their brahmin. They must stretch each muscle; make it warm and limber.

Inside the arena, the coaching slsff, with their clipboards and their breath fogging from their mouths like slumbering dragons, watch. Sports do not require some banal interview to determine the motivation or the -feelings behind the athlete. His body says everything.

The workman-like players+ like labourers from Detroit+ look to get the job done. Some play for the aesthetic they generate+ creating tapestries of genius in the patterns they weave,, It’s not difficult to pick those who will be cut. They skate to the bench after a shift looking at the coarse nylon on the toes of their skates. They seem to try a little harder to overcome what seems to them a shortfall in their talent. These players don’t know it, but they have not been beat out for a spot on the roster. They have slowly conquered themselves I At this level of play, the players are about as equal physically as genetic variation allows. It is those who master their fears and channel their furies into their play that will retain a spot on what appears to be a very powerful Warrior team this smson. This Tuesday evening, you will be able to witness the transmutation of murderous instincts into controlled violence as these athletes attempt to transcend physical barriers and play the upper level game with their minds. ‘This is the annual black and gold intrasquad match.

Rugby Warriors ekte past B.rcbck by Glenn Imprint



Two determin’ed rugby teams from Waterloo travelled to Brock University Saturday, September 17 in their quest to earn promotion back into the OUAA’s First Division. Last year, the rugby Warriors played dismally and went on to a feeble O-7 record. Demotion to Division 2 was the result. The winning tra’dition in rugby at this school was*shattered. The return of ke veterans and the introduction o P a talented enthusiastic rookie crop has given the team confidence in redressing last year’s despair.

Brock would be a tough team to crack in the opening game. The Badgers barely missed promotion to Division 1 last year after a heartbreaking loss in their final match against Carleton. Not having a co-op program helped them, as most everyone on their squad returned this year. . In the first half, the Warrior tight five, with front rows Jimmy Closs, Alan Phillips -and Mark Rankin and second rows Glenn Hauer and Mac Clayton, dominated the set pieces, winning 17 of 21 scrummages and 35 of 41 lineouts. Officiating was hesitant as the referee failed several times to .call the Brock back row offside.

But the Warrior forwards often did not consolidate the ball properly or take advantage of Brock’s offside players. MentaI lapses seemed to be the name of the game as Waterloo’s back row led by former OUAA all-star Blair Falconer ran off on many bril-_ liant runs, while the supporting cast merely watched the breakdown from a distance without supporting the tackle, Brock’s very fast wingers would run right back at Waterloo to eliminate any position gained in the field. The Warrior pack dominated Brock’s forwards and the backs sparkled on defense tackling effectively, Offense was lacking; the first half ended in a O-O deadlock.

Several of the varsity rugby players will have to work hard to keep their names on the roster, as many aspiring players on the Junior Varsity Warrior6 turned in a spirited ‘performance in an easy 25-0 romp over Brock’s seconds.

Against the Brock Badgers she was instrumental in helping the Athena’s to B 1-O victory.

The sophomore science student took the silver in the eight kilometer race, finishing in 25 minutes and 16 seconds. One minute later, a wild kick to the finish saw three veterans cross the line almost simultaneausly. Chris Rogers placed tenth, and nationally-ranked steeplechaser Scott McLellan was twelfth; both recorded times of 26:33. Meanwhile, Al Faulds, coming off an August marriage (his first), was three seconds brick in 14th spot. The old and neti guards of the team were juxtaposed in 22nd and 23rd spots. PhD student Sean McGuiness was three seconds ahead of rookie Peter Brooks, as McGuiness ran 2795. Behind these runners came three veterans and three rookies. The old men - Shamir* Jamal, pale Lapham, and John Gonos - were 29th, 35th, and 5lst, while frosh newcomers Dan Blosdale, Dean Houston, and Dave Richardson placed 44th, eoth, and 66th respectively. * In the women’s race, the Athenas were represented by Linda Hachey. The second-year Engineering student ran to a strong Zsth place finish. Later in the same day, the Fourth Annual Beer Mile was held under near perfect conditions. The event attracted several Warrior alumni, including CEAU all-stars Harvey Mitro and Andy Krucker. Records tumbled like a Suzuki four by four, as Scott McLellan set anew standard of five minutes, 18.5 se-,
