Progress in all sectors of engineering and technology have brought direct developments all over the world,‘: says Spath. “As a result, this situation has reached the point which requires more direct co-operation. There is no longer any justification for various research institutions to be doing the same research into the same area and producing the same results. A much more efficient and effective course would be far respective organizations to inform one another of work being conducted and to exchange their various expertise.‘+ Baden-Wurttemburg is located in the highly indus.triAlized area of southwestern Germany, The economy is characterized by the pronounced strength of small businesses and world class corporations such as Daimler-Benz, Robert Bosch, Voith, and’ Porsche. , The UW visit, which occurred at the personal request of Ontario Premier David Peterson, w&s a high-powered affair.

Former model speaks

Media images of women ‘racist,, violent by Renate Sander-Regiar Imprint atsff Formerly a top model with New York’s prestigious Eileen Ford modelling agency, Ann Simonton is now a feminist and proud to be one. She even likes being called a “radical” feminist, she told a receptive audience at tht! Humanities Theatre September 2% Her slide show and accompanying talk was attended by an almost equal proportion of men and women, Simonton spoke on “Sex, Power and the Media: Rethinking the Myths of America’s Dream Girl.” Her talk was enlightening: her slide show sometimes frightening. Familiar images of women - in fashion spreads, advertisements, music album covers - which wouldn’t normally attract our attention took on new significance as Simonton presented the audience with her own shrewd observations. “Racist” is her description of “America’s Dreem Girl” vision: blond, blue-eyed, voluptuous+ It is the look of most models and beauty pageant participants those who have the right genetic code. If you’ve got it, you’ve got it, If you don’t, you don’t, That’s what moat people think. But behind the scenes of beauty pageants stories circulate.

The list goes on. “Few women would really want to be a part of that,” said Simonton in a, press conference preceding her slide show. “It perpetuates the artifice of beauty -

Simonton showed slides of adver tisements depicting women in sometimes ridiculous, sometimes sinister, sometimes violent, and often just plain distasteful positions: 4 stewardess dancing on an airstrip; a woman dressed in rags, her face beautifully made up in Revlon products; a woman lounging about the house with her housecoat open and her bra showing to its full advantage: a naked woman lying down, exposing her neck; and another naked woman lying under the foot of a man. In addition, all the models are young and beautiful. “We need to challenge the beauty standard that younger is better,” stresses, Simonton “Women find it very painful to grow old nowadays in our society.” It is en issue she feels strongly about, from two perspectives.

But our society perceive8 “beautiful” as young, thin, blueeyed- and blond. That’s what comes across in pageants and the media. What also comes across in pageants is the idea that it is okay to put women on display, to parade them around and judge them: a mentalitySimonton finds particularly harmful; The same comes across in fashion modelling, a field Simonton knows well. “Models are like she declares. prostitutes,” “They’re selling their bodies and sex+” She adds that modelling agents sound a lot like pimps on While she was mothe nhone.

Simonton

Is it possible to be a “redblooded -male” who aches from head to toe at the sight of a beautiful woman without being sexist? That was one of the many issues raised by Ann Simonton’s eye-opening let ture, Sex, Power,’ And The Media, last Thursday at the Humanities Theatre ironically, also the site of last night’s Miss Oktoberfest Pageant. Ironic because Ms. Simonton is herself a former model and beauty queen who has since, with the’ Santa Cruz-based Media Watch, taken up the cause of bettering the image of women in the media, Hardly the man-hating, aggreesive, fire-breathing feminist of which ao many men are paranoid, Simonton’s mannner was self-effacing and engaging, the

women being’ treated by beeuty pageants and men’s magazines as a “piece of meat” is hardly an exaggeration - the unsettling fact is the pervasiveness of this treatment of women throughout society. Simonton said she first became aware of being regarded as a boy toy at the age of fourteen when she was trophy girl for a local race track and hadtoput up with the advances of drunken stock car drivers who, if the slides were any indication, fit the redneck race driver image quite nicely. She also described beauty pageants themselves as “public humiliation” as she and her fellow competitors, in a ritual that is re-enacted in every pageant, would be paraded around in identical outfits under the scrutinous gaze of [mostly male) judges, to determine the most desirable features, the shapeliest legs, etc, Simonton’s comparison of the

hint of nervousness in her voice serving somehow to make her more credible; the accomp’anying slideshow, consisting of images from men’s magazines, ads from women’s magazines, as well as beauty contest pictures, spoke for itself with its own im-

model to the prostitute and the agent to the pimp was particularly instructive; every time a picture of a model is sold, it is the body that is sold and the agent, in taking his percentage of the model’s earnings, is taking a cut

plicit

of her body’. The thrust of the lecture was inescapable - the image of women is a marketing., device; it is advertising. Maybe Simonton was right and we really should “start calling Miss Oktoberfest Miss Schneiders.”

on the

pOpU-

lar media’s appallingly -_sexist presentation of women. Simonton’s aim with this presentation is to shock us into re-evaluating the way we perceive and absorb the media, to look more critically at the media’s representation of both men and women. The oft-quoted slogan of

“If photos were shown of chains on animals, people would be outraged.” Simonton showed some shocking and violent slides from various “skin” magazines: women in various pose8 of torture and bondage, often with bloody bodies. A series from Hustler, the third best selling porno magazine, depicted women’s bodies served up as food dishes. A milder image but still significant - was taken from a faahion magazine and showed a woman’s torso tied up in belts. The photo came from a fashion spread selling accessories. ‘If photos were shown of chains on animals,” Simonton points out, “people would be outraged.” But when it is done to women, people accept it as natural. That is what Simonton, co-ordinator of the U.S.-based Media Watch group, wants to changs We should no longer accept demeaning’ degrading media images of women (nor of men, she is careful to include). We must improve the woman’s image in the media. Simonton emphasizes her group is not against nudity and sexuality. As evidence of this, they have protested topless on the beach and in parades1

And then there is pornography. Playboy and Penthouse are the top-selling magazines in the U.S. mainly because nudity and sexuality are hushed and covered up in our society. They are topics not discussed. And they lead adolescent boys to learn about the female body through pornographic magazines.

More disturbing, she went on to tell of the nightmarish, total

lack of control women have over the images of their own bodies, showing a photo of her on the co.ver of True Story beside a headline teasing its readership with lurid contents within. Not only was the photo used without her permission, but also without her knowledge until she expel, rienced the shock of seeing her face splashed across the cover of a crass, sensationalist magazine not the sort of thing that gets your boyfriend’s mother inviting you over for tea, However, hav-

illustrate everything from magazine covers to jeans and perfume advertisements. Not that the woman has any control over her body in the first place. When Simonton spoke of the “racism” of the standards of beauty espoused by our society, the implications went deeper than the simple fact of the privileged form of women being young, blond, big-buated and flat-stomached feminine beauty has been defined, as it were, without the consultation of women. They are subject to a (generally patriarchal) society which essentially gives them specifications to aspire to if they wish to be considered beautiful, manifesting itself in extreme cases in anorexia, and in the alarmingly wides read number of women who x ye their hair blond to fit the desired image of women. However, the blond beauty is not the only harmful image of women peddled by the media. Just as devious, according to Simonton, is the familiar motif of “superwoman” or “supermom” used in a plethora of commercials and ads depicting a busy career woman who somehow manages to clean house, cook for her family of four, and put her sick kids to bed after a grueling day at the office. An impossible model to emulate, the ‘&supermom” can also be viewed as an attempt to affirm the traditional role of the woman in the home; in addition to her new responsibilities as co-breadwinner, she is still expected to be June Cleaver.

Feds subsidize handbook by

So& Bjorkquist

Imprint

staff

Publishing the Fed Book is a tough job-. It isn’t easy to compile a compact handbook which will suit the needs of the students, especially when it is such a costly project, says Shane Carmichael, Vice-President of OpeCons and finance for the Federation of Students. “Our goal in printing this book is to break even. Many people think that is an unrealistic goal, and we’re discovering it i8 not actually a break-even process,” Carmichael said. Over 15,000copies of the Fed Book are distributed to University of Waterloo students each year. The handbook iqcludes information about the Federation of Students and other university facilities, in addition to an academic calendar. The 1988-89 Fed Book is the third effort combining both elements. “Even utting those two together ef Pectively is a real task. We end up with something either too big or toa cluttered with ads, since we need to sell a lot of advertising to break even,” Carrnie chael explained, Although advertising helps pay for much of the book’s printing cost and staffing, over $IO,O~@ wae lost this year in its publication. The $10,000 does not necessarily include the cost of salaries and wages involved with the project. The estimated Federation subsidy to. the handbook was not included in the original budget. Vice-President (Operations and Finance) Shane Carmichaet says the money will surface after a review of the gen-

eral operating budget is completed. The Federation of Students subsidizes these losses with funds left over from their budget, translating to just under one-dollar per student. The books cost approximately $2,50 each, and would sell for about $4 ‘retail, Carmichael said. He added each year the Federation of Students comes closer to breaking even in publication, and substantial changes are being considered for advertising sales in future yeara. I Among these alterations, the Federation would like more full

page advertisements, with sales aimed particularly at co-op employers, Carmichael said. Other possible changes include condensing advertising into a format similar to the yellow page? of a telephone book+ Grouping advertisements together would decrease the cluttered effect of placing ads on every page, he added, “I think students are certainly getting a service out of thia book, Our goals are to provide information and a date book at no cost to the students, and- I- think we’re coming closer and closer to our goals every year.”

October 17-23 has been declared “AIDS Awareness Week” in K-W. The Federation of Stun dents and Health & Safety are planning several on-campus events for the week in an effort to inform and educate the UW community. AIDS is an especially relevant and pressing concern on campus; statistics indicate the disease is spreading at an alarming rate among 18 - 24 year olds, both heterosexual and homosexual.

Included in the week will b displays in the Campus Centre, speakers, videos, and a button and poster campaign. Event organizers hope students will “explore the issues” and “get the facts” by considering provocative questions such as “should people with AIDS be allowed to attend UW?” The invited speakers, tentatively scheduled-to speak in the CC on October 18, will be talking about the transmission and prevention of the disease, moral issues surrounding AIDS, and the rights of people with AIDS, In the meantime, the orgenizers ask “Are you safe?” ,

Student building There are plenty of problems with this campus of ours; however, it is rare that all students are invited to voice their ideas for improvement. Everyone within and beyond the University of VVaterloo community is in a position to contribute their thoughts regarding a new campus. building. The Federation of Students’ view of a new building is one that would “meet the non-academic needs of the student -population.” Think of it - a building site of huge proportions could potentially offer recreational space for pick-up basketball, a new swimming pool, tennis courts, a weight room, pool tables, a movie theatre-, club offices, whirlpools, a dentist office, a drug store, mailboxes for every student, a variety store, a pro-shop, racquetball courts, a sports injury clinic and aerobic class space. Only now, can you have your individual priorities (in terms of this issue] represented by UW student leaders. Instead of complaining later, enjoy your right to affect how this building can serve you and those who take your place as undergrads at UW. The building will involve adding a fee to tuition which must be passed by referendum. But, now is the time to indicate what kind of fee you think would be reasonable,

Unfortunately, the general student populace at UW does not enjoy the luxury of having months of input into this project. As of this morning, students only have two full business days to fill out a questionnaire or submit their ideas in any other format, There is only one person concerned and anxious students can relay their ideas to. That person is Feder: ation of Students President Adam Chamberlain. If YOU did not have the opportunity to‘volunteer your ideas on a questionnaire as of yet, march up to Campus Centre room 235 and talk to Mr. Chamberlain; he is standing by for the mad rush with questionnaires in hand. Because Monday is a holiday, Friday, October i! and Tuesday, October II are the only days that are left before the Fed president and his committee sit down to write their report which will be submitted to the Students’ Council and ultimately to the university administration. If it is only convenient for you to talk to Mr. Chamberlain over the holiday weekend, watch for him at Federation Hall and the Bombshelter. And, although we cannot divulge Mr. Chamberlain’s exact home address, he does live somewhere on Albert street in4 Waterloo.

Canada c oeS need day care by Renaa Imprint

Thirdly, her article failed to denounce the major disadvantages women lace, under the guise of inadequate day care. Mrs. Tambeau forgot to ask herseLf “the obvious question” that she, herself, posed: ‘Does this country have children younger than school age who would use the (day care) systern?” In 1986, while 1,210,108 preschoolers (under age six) and 1.5 million school age children 6-12) had mothers in the labour 1arce, only 220,517 licensed day care spaces were available.

Licensed part-time and drop-in services do not exist. Present policy also falls far below the minimum need for financial assistance. Most Canadian families are left with no child care aid whatsoever.

MulticulturaMm

TCI the

editor,

I must speak out against the madness of bilingualism and mult iculturalism, One language unites and English has proven to be the best for this purpose. Multiculturalism divides people into ethnic groupa, thus ensuring that their backgrounds, customs and thinking remain different. There are many ethnic groups in Canada, all of which have their own country-of-origin language. To name a few - native Indians, English, French,. Welsh, Scottish, Italian, Finnish, Polish, Ukrainian, Swedish, Hungarian, Pakistani, Estonian, Chinese, Tapaneae, Greek, Vietnamese (with apologies to those not named). We are all Canadian, whether we were corn here or

are naturalized citizens. I am an English-speaking Canadian, Some are Ojibway and English-speaking Canadians, some are Polish and Englishspeakirig Canadians, some are Finnish and English-speaking Canadians, some are Ukranian and English-speaking Canadians, and so on. Now, all of a sudden, four percent of the people in Canada who are French and English-speaking Canadians want to force everyone else in Canada by government legislation to become fluent in French (in addition to the other one or two languages they have already had to learn] or else they will not be able to get or keep a job of even modest wages. I, fur one, have seen no move

divides

toward giving all people in Canada a chance to vote on this matter in either a federal or provincial election. I, among millions of others, do not agree with having every province of Canada bilingual+ while Quebec remains totally French-speaking and French-reading only and I, among millions of others, believe that one language unites and that that unifying language has been and should continue to be the English language. I pray ta God that He will ensure that English will continue to be the one official unifying language in Canada and, for that matter, the rest of the world. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

[WWRG fee debate c.ontinuesl TO the editor, In the recent debate over WPIRG, several points have been overlooked+ To begin with, it does not follow, as Mr. Wright seems to think, that Mr. Tarr’s call for the elimination of the WPIRG fee must be accompanied by a call to elimi,nate other fees such as those for the Imprint or CKMS+ In thait they provide a forum for the entire student body, the Imprint and CKMS are both legitimate university organizations. In general, they allow any viewpoint to be expressed. This stands in sharp contrast to WPIRG which is a completely partisan organization with a predetermined “party line.” In fact, I’ve often wondered how they would respond were one to propose to write a thoroughly documented paper on the eminent superiority, both in terms of safety and environmental impact, of nuclear power over other

forms of power. Or perhaps a more speculative paper on the motivations of sham “environmentalists” who cant inuously espouse completely unscientific theories such as nuclear winter or ozone layer depletion.

tuition statement is that it gains enormous, unearned credibility by being officially associated with the university. And it is precisely for this reason that I too call for the abolition of the WPIRG fee from the university fee statement.

Multiple sclerosis is one of the most common diseases of the nervous system. It is not a killer, and does not usually strike dramatically, which is why the public ia not very familiar with this disease+ Periods of improvement usually alternate with periods of symptoms* . In MS, hardened patches due to inflammation are scattered at random throughout the brain and spinal cord, interfering with the nerves in these areas. Therefore, the disease is also called disseminated sclerosis. Why these patches become inflamed is still unknown. They usually ‘occur in young adults, The hard patches come and go. The symptoms depend on the portion of the nervous system that is affected. Since the location, extent, and duratio.n of the injuries vary; it is difficult to describe a typical case of MS. The most common symptams include: tremor or shaking of the limbs, often making the patient weak: speech may become slow and monotonous; unsteadiness in walking; inability to maintain balance; stiffness in walking, the knees failing to bend; difficulties in vision; patient may see double or lose part of the visual field; paralysis, which may occur in any part of the body. Treatment of the person with multiple scleroois involves go’od general care to keep up the’

of MS

body’s health and resistance to disease, since MS can become worse after illness. Physiotherapy will prevent the affected muscles from becoming. unnecessarily weakened or paralyzed. Because emotional disturbances can worsen the disease, and depression may occur with disability, a psychiatrist or psychotherapist may be ’ helpful to the MS patient. The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada has a Waterloo Regional chapter, which can be reached .through the Community Information Centre (578-3800) or by phoning 653-5705 for information and referral.

In a small patch of rain forest inBorneo, experts have identified 700 different species of treee, as many as exist in all of North America. In Peru, a lone tree standing on the shore of Tambo ata River is home to 43 species of ants, as many as in the whole o P the &it is h Isles, The world’s exquisitely balanced tropical rain forests ma last only a little longer, Tropical biologists agree that species are 3:eing lost faster than they can be catalogued. Whereas many species in the more temperate zones of the world could not survive the world’s periodic ice ages, rain forest species ‘lived and continued their evolution. The diversity of species found only in the rain forests which girdle the earth at or near the equator, has accumulated over the past 60 million years. The symbiosis which have developed among trees, mosses, beetles, frogs etc., is an extensive webbed network having no comparable colonies anywhere else. It is a perfect system: water is trapped between the root-mat floor and broad tree-top canopies and nutrients ‘are recycled in an organic bond of fertile growth and fruitful decay. At a rapidly increasing rate, people are entering thicl balanced ecosystem and destroying it. In Brazil, Central America, Hawaii and Indonesia, rain forests are being logged, burned and bulldozed. Each year, 30,000 square miles of forest are lost... forever, The world’s rain forests have already shrunk from, 5 million square miles to 35 million. As we, transform the rain forests, we lose them. When trees are removed, rains compact and devitalize the soil: the hot equatorial sun bakes the soil until it is hard aa concrete: subsequent rainfall causes flooding and erosion. Growth, political interests and economic forces are at the root of rain forest decimation. For example, the “hamburger connection” is often implicated in wide-scale deforestation practices. Ranchers in Latin America and Africa have been encouraged to destroy rain forests to produce grazing land for grass-fed beef. Substantial amounts of beef come from areas cleared by bulldozers and then sown with grazing grass. Cattle are pastured here and the meat then sold at relatively low prices to North American businesses. Rain forests are a key to the ecology and climate of our planet. The United Nations Environment program refers to rain forests as “the lungs of the world,” but they are being decimated.partly to -lower the price of a hamburger by a few cents. Destruction of these forests need not continue, If local and federal governments move in the direction of land reform and development over the long term and if industrialized nations understand more sensitively what their appetite for “burgers” [and fine teakwood furniture] is doing to our collective future, the wholesale destruction of these’ forests can be halted. Each of us can do something: ask your racer to label meat products that are imported. Before buying %urgers in fast-food resfaurants, ask where their meat products come from. Encourage your elected representatives to introduce legislation requiring labeling of imported meat. More comprehensive legislation to phase out beef imports from tropical forests would be even better. Support local farmers and buy locally grown meat products. Say NO to teakwood coffee tables and insist on wood grown from uur own hardwood farms in Canada. It is the little things that each of us can do that will ultimately protect the precious:‘Iungs of the world.” For more information on rain forest bestruction, it8 effects on climate change and on its protection, call or visit the WPJRG office, room 123 General Services Complex, ext 2578.

OPINION

Catch 22: by Danaal Charnsy Imprint staff What seems really important today are things with a monetary or an entertainment value. Beer, for instance, is greatly enjoyed far its taste and its role in creating a social atmosphere. But sometimes we put aside other important things such as abstract words like morality, vslues .* Beer is a high priority for many university students. In addition, it is readily available throughout Waterloo Here as at other universities, it is highly publicized on campus by a university group funded not only to promote beer, but also its safe use. The Federation of Students is divided into many boards; alcohol awareness falls under the Public Issues Board. Within this board is a group concerned with alcohol awareness and safety, affiliated with a US. organization called BACCHUS. l

The effect of this structure is that there are Federation boards responsible for beer advertising and promotion in conflict with a board responsible for making <sure alcohol is not abused. TO make matters more confusing, both sides are sponsored by the beer companies. These corporations back many events, promotion campaigns all over campus, and to a lesser extent “Don’t drink and drive” posters. Despite promoting safe drinking, beer companies are most interested in ,getting us to drink beer. This year Molson has set up a - contest within VilIage two. The floor that drinks the most MOL-

SON beer will receive a prize at the end of the ydar. 1s this promoting safe drinking? We have to wake up and smell the coffee; beer companies are out to make profit, .profit, profit. They’re not sitting worrying about our welfare if they were they wouldn’t promote beer as the ultimate thing. In striving to increase sales, M&onis only promoting unsafe drinking by using students in its war against its competitors.

Beer companies aren’t going to ctime and make sure their safety programs are working, they just give The Feds money and an outline of programs to be carried out. And why do they do this? Only to free their image. That Leaves the implementation of alcohol awareness to the Federation of Students. Both the board responsible for social activities and the board in charge of safety share the responsibility to ensure their promotions do not make beer drinking unsafe or create s biased atmosphere for students, While the Federation of Students is in charge of these activities, it seems they consider promoting beer more import ant than making it safe. A good example of the bias toward beer promotion and just making money is the Federation of Students handbook. The biggest and most expensive ad covering the back cover is Amst cl’s $2,70Odollar ad. But unlike other advertisers who bought large ads, Amstel’s logo appears weekly throughput the handbook. According to Handbook Editor Ian Lipton, the weekly logo display was added because of the

high cost of the ad. Why then didn’t all the high price ads get extra coverage? Why was a beer company chosen as the biggest influence in the Fed book? Simply because it was willing to offer the money. And why not press for more advertising from oil companies and other high tech institutions that strongly support all our doop students? Lipton says there isn’t time to be picky of which companies buy our ads; we have to go with the money. Surely, money can’t be everything. Once we start using beer companies to get behind our every move, for convenience (beer companies know they’ll get great coverage in a university and are more than happy to keep sponsoring us) then we are indebted to buy a certain amount of their alcohol and advertise them everywhere; thus a vi&us circle begins. Public issues Board Chairman Martin Loken supports the vicious circle notion. He thinks we enter this vicious circle by tying ourselves so closely to beer companies. In the future, he likes to see a plan to cut off ties with beer companies.

It is not right to have the beer companies r tied so closely to safety programs because it’s not as efficient in the end. The alcohol awareness group on campus’ is having enough trouble implementing programs because of staff turnover every four months. With these obstacles, they shouldn’t have to worry about pressure from beer companies which sponsor both safety programs and beer promot ion.

As well, safety awareness ads have to compete with the ad wars between beer companies promoting their beer on campus.

The imbalance between safety and beer promotion diminishes the effectiveness of an already unstable organization,

Day care needed Continued

from page 6 the future. We’re paying these high costs now, and we’ll continue to pay for these social problems in the future. Restraints on public spending in this area further intensify poverty and inequality. #The false notion that government spending will be less productive than -private investment conveniently-maintains the widening gap between the rich and the poor. To date, the marketplace has not provided sufficient, affordable day care, and because of its nature, day care centres will not suddenly crowd strip mall8 tomorrow+ The advantages of sharing twelve ye.ars of day care costs over the course of our lives far outweigh the disadvantages of unassisted day care costs during child-rearing years. Canada’s income tax system must insure those with higher incomes pay a larger share. Present assistance must n’ot be abandoned until fully funded day care has been provided to low income families, The useless system of tax relief, which provide8 assistance to those least in need, cannot be permitted to dictate the nature of future proposals. The present proposal to the federal government fails miserably in this respect. While the government wastes time with sluggish reforms,inequality self-perpetuates and grows closer to being irreversible, especially for women. I Our day-care system leaves women with bleak choices. Single mothers continue watering down skim milk, unable to afford their second child. Women abandon potential careers because waitressing hours correspond to the child care hours they can afford. Public programs should reduce such discrimination, not condemn minority groups to poverty by lack of other opportunity, Furthermore, women are denied equal opportunity by this system. In other words, this system supports sex discrimination. The media diverts attention from this government-enforced sex discrimination by telling women that lack of emotional, physical and intellectual strength keeps them from being a “supermom.” Supermom is a successful career person, caring mother, and loving wife wrapped up into one efficient bundle. Women choosing to work or to stay home with their children should not be deceived by this media and governmentforged guilt trip, Neither decision hurts the child, provided caring, daily attention for the child can be found. Having the decision forced upon a mother creates an irritable atmosphere for children. Having stereotypes forced upon people also supports disadvantages and inequalities. Vivian Tambeau’s article enforces the image of young adults today 88 non-individualistic, nonthinking, irresponsible beings who need advice handed down to them 80 they can “have any hope of acquiring what my (Mrs. Tambeau’s) generation has acquired.” Thanks, but I would have prefer& to do without the increasincreasing vio18nce, ing alcoholic consumption, continuing high rates of drug abuse, continuing high pornography sales, increasing racism, persistent un-

employment , increasing suicide rates, and growing inequalities in the distribution of wealth. If individuals were not lumped into categories and slapped with go-with-the-flow-look -out-fornumber-one advice, perhaps peopie would rise to social change, ensuring that lower income families truly do have equal opportunity to food, clothing, and employment. Finally, older generations shouldn’t hastily encourage younger generations to stop providing for those in need, if only in the light of self-interest. Canada is rapidly growing older. They will soon find themselves at the mercy of the younger generation, who will decide on the social programs and welfare of the elderly population.

Canada a peaceful country?! Read no further if you are comfortable with the myth of Canada as “peacemaker” or “honest broker.” The model citizens at Ontario Hydro and at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited are not waiting for the start-up of a $150 million tritium removal facility, located at Ontario’s Darlington Nuclear St at ion, to begin cant r$uting, another essential component to the nuclear arms race. This week, the two Crown corporations hosted a conference to give courses on safe methods for handling tritium, a radioactive residue found in heavy water. Somehow, and in spite of the oft spoken contention that it is illegal for Canada to export nuclear materials and technologies for non-peaceful purposes, a number of U.S. weapons manufacturers were ableto attend this conference. New Mexico’s Sandia National Laboratory, California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and General Electric - the people who bring good things to life - were all represented. Hydro officials claimed they could not regulate participation in the course baaed on involvement in weapons research: in other words, Hydro invited the bomb makers, The utility wants to export tritium to the US,, and plans call for more tritium to be exported than is used. for all research and non-weapons uses in the United States, Hydra executives, and provincial politicians must be gloating over the possibility of justifying nuclear power at $30,000 per dunce of exported tritium. None of the bomb makers will use information gathered at the conference to help them in their bearch for better methods to destroy life on eatith, especially if Hydro and Atomic Energy of Canada limited warn them that Canada cannot legally export nuclear materials and technology for weapona purposes. None of the taxpayers of Ontario will wonder why they are paying for lessons far nuclear weapons makers on how to handle safely a substance that is used more for nuclear weapons than for all its other purposes combined. We dig our own graves. Mmc

Exam firs t step in road ‘to diplomacy ~~ze~~~*:~~on~~~~~,$ Canadian Campus meeting

by Cathy Sdga Imprint staff

On Monday, October 3, Mr. Barry Yeates, a former Foreign Service Officer, spoke to a group of 30 UW students about the upcoming Foreign Service exam, The annual test, to be be heidon October 22 in MC 2034, is the first step toward the goal of representing Canada’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a Foreign Service Officer(FSO). Of the approximately 4000 people across Canada who will write the exam, 350 to450 will be selected for a rigorous interview. From this number, about 100 will be given appointments. Appointments may be at any Canadian post around the world. What exactly does a FSO do? Basically, there are four types of officers: Trade Commissioners, who promote the sale of Canadian goods in other countries; Immigration Officers, who interview potential immigrants at embassies and refugee camps; Development Assistance Officers, who manage project developments in developing countrib; and Political/Economic Analysts, who do a variety of jobs for the Department of External Affairs, of which the FSO program is a part. FSO’s will spend approximately half to two-thirds of their career outside of Canada. This can be both a drawback and a reward; the travelling and living in foreign countries provides rich cultural and social expe-

riences, but can also be a strain on family or personal relationships. Who becomes a FSO? Candidates must be Canadian citizens by the exam date and must possess at least a bachelor’s degree in any discipline -by June 1989. The interested person must then pass the screening exam and successfully undergo the grueling interview process. Mr. Yeates addressed several myths about the Foreign Service. “You do not have to have an advanced degree nor do you have to be bilingual, although you must be willing to become so,” he said. He stressed that all appointmerits are based oti the interviews, not on political connections and/or.nepotism. He pointed out that many children af diplomats follow the same ca- -. reer path as their parents because of their familiarity with the program. The program is an affirmative action program. As such it encourages natives, women, visible minorities and handicapped person5 to apply, Those wishing to write the exam must register at Career Services by October 14. The exam is free of charge and may be written as many times as desired, since results are not kept from year to year. On October 7, a representative from the Foreign Service will be on campus to discuss life as a FSO and to answer any questions. Further information is available at Career Services in Needles Hall.

quently be&me peace movement, “Just as my initial desire to kill the kidnapper would he my undoing, so also developing bombs is the undoing of ii nation.” said Jaegar. She stressed that her Christian beliefs are the basis of her ability to forgive her daught er’s murderer, The social activist sees nonaction as complicity, saying “I did not want any bombs made in .my name. I did no,t want any bomb5 made with my money.” Defending her own acts of civil disobedience, Jaegar poitited out that women’s right to vote and the end of slavery resulted from civil disobedience, which created enough tension ‘to pressure the American government into passing new laws. On one occasion, Jaegar and other members of the Detroit Peace Community commemorated the 38th Anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki at Williams International, an American company which manufactures parts for cruise missiles. Protesting American government armament policies, they emptied jars of non-toxic red food colouring into a pond, and floated candles in styrtifoam cups upon it, in emulation of the Japanese commemoration of the same event. In another act of protest, Jaegar and other protesters spilled their own blood from baby bottles onto the ca!umns of federal buildings and tacked up names of victim5 of Contra terrorist activities in Nicaragua. Jaegar’s subsequent response to a judge ) who berated her for defacing gavernment property was to compare her action5 to the kidnapping, raping and murdering of Nicaraguan peasants by tdrrori8t Contras. Jaegar was arrested for both protest5 and recall5 her prison experience5 as eye-opening opportunities to understand the plight of the poor. “All of t,hese people have been victims and most of the time can hardly be blamed for the choices they have made,” said Jaegar.

At approximately IO:30 p.m. during the night of the attack, an area resident alerted to a moaning coming from the park, called the police. Investigating the report, police found IT-year-old Jon Alzner in the treed area just off Seagram Drive. He had received a severe beating to the head. Alzner was admitted to K-W Hospital’s intensive care ward. Despite rumours circulating throughout the UW campus, the victim wa8 not a UW or WLU student -nor was the assault of a 8exusl nature.

US. policy of Low Intensity Conflict’ in Nicaragua haa brought the country to its financial kneeg, reports Professor Arnold Snyder of Conrad Grebel College. Snyder made his fourth trip to Nicaragua this past July and presented his findings to a small gathering on Wednesday, September 28, sponsored by the university’s Peace Society. For anyone who has followed the Nicaraguan political scene since the 1979 insurrection which ousted the Somoza regime, the new Nicaraguan reality is both dispiriting and dejecting. For Professor Arnold Snyder of Conrad Grebel College, this new reality became overwhelmingly obvious on the trip, his first since 1984. The US. orchestrated anti+overnment riots have caused tremendous turmoil and uneasiness among the 3 million inhabitants. The purpaee of the anti-government protests is to make the ruling Sandinista party crack, thereby disrupting the extremely frsgile on again-off again peace talks with the U.S. backed Contra rebels. The U.S.-led economic embargo has created skyrocketing inflation which, in turn, has resulted in the need for currency devaluation. One major effect is mass poverty.

A thirst-quenching new trend was initiated at the September 28 WATPUB in Torontcr. The Management Consulting practice of Arthur Andersen & Co. picked up the tab for over 1200 drinks at Muddy’s on the Esplanade. The firm had approached this term’s Toronto WATPUB coordinators - Dan Brintnell, Rich Geisen and Dave Kalbfleiach with their offer of free drinks for UW students. The evening WBB described by many in attendance as “the best WATPUB ever” and the WATPUB coordinators were pleased to report “incredible boozerosity

Two Canadians have invented a type of paper that will not allow what is printed on it to be photocopied or transmitted by a fax machine. Called Nocopi Security Paper, it is the first product of its kind and has found a large market in only two years, says Norman Gardner, president of Nocopi Inc. of Toronto. Gardner and his partner, Micheal Votiky, put Nocopi paper on the market in January 1986 and have sold about 50 million sheets since then. “At first, we thought that our paper would be used for doing the most Top Secret materiala in high governments agencies. Now we have seen that the business world has made much wider use of it,” says Gardner. “In the U.S. alone, $20 billion is spent on security, Much of this money is aimed at preventing competitors from stealing proprietary information about pcoduct design, manufacturing techniques and marketing .strategies.” Gardner and Votiky invented Nocopi while trying to sell their Montreal advertising firm in 1080. The two partners knew they would have to reveal their’audited statements to potential buyers, who were also their competitors, “We wondered how we could protect ourselves. There was nothing stopping the competitors from making dozens- of photocopies of our statements,” says Gardner. The two men checked with several of the major photocopying manufacturers, only to find there was no available way to prevent photocopying. So, they set about designing their own security system through a process of trial and error. “We tried treating paper with everything from lipstick to spray- net to nail polish remover,H says Gardner, They eventually got their best results by treating paper with a red dye, which is added to the paper in its wood-pulp stage. The dye gives the paper a purplish colour, How does the dye work? “Photocopiers work at a certain light wavelength similar to the frequencies on your radio dial. What Nocopi paper does is interfere with the photocopier’s wavelength, producing something akin to radio static,” says Gardiner. Nocopi paper not only prevents photocopying; its distinctive colour serves as a signal to corporate securit guarda whose job it is to check x e briefcases of employees leaving the office at closing time. The biggest challenge vwas producing a paper that would protect documents from every type of photocopier. “There are now about 30~ different types of photocopying machinea and 150 different fax machines on the market,” Gardiner says. The solution was to reduce. Nocopi paper in four cr ifferent shades of pur le, each of which cannot be du Picated by a different class of p K otocop machines. A fifth, darkest, sha B e of Nocopi called Wordsafe paper, Scrambler, cannot be duplicated by any

machine.

Though Nocopi paper cannot be copied, it is itself a type of photocopying paper. “You m&e your original document on white paper, ‘then photocopy it onto Nocopi paper, and thsn destroy the original,” Gardner says. Gardner cannot reveal the names of any of ,his clients, How-

ever, the San Francisco EXCIminer recently revealed that the Apple computer company had bought truckloads of Nocopi paper following a leak of a 180page document detailing a possible version of its upcoming laptop computer. . “The employee turnover in Sill icon Valley is about 24 per cent a year. People are leaving every e

day and taking wads of information with them,” says Gardiner. Nocopi paper sells for about five cents a page, twice as much as ordinary white paper. In January, the company will begin marketing ,a Nocopi marker pen for bloc king out individuals words and sentences on ordinary paper. (Canadian Science)

The Robert Starbird Dorney ‘ecology garden opened officially Saturday, October 1. Located beside theEnvironmental Studies 1 building, the garden was planted as a continuing testimonial to the late Professor Dorney’s work at the university. Dr. James Bater, the dean of the facultyofenvironmental studies, described Dorney’a work as “centred around restoration ecology, end the creation of natural habitats and eco-systems.” The garden is divided into two themes; Carolinian Woodland and tall grass prairies. It contains rare species such as the cucumber magnolia, prickly pear cactus, and the Kentucky coffee tree. A sculpture in the garden is modelled after spirit stones found in pebbled Japanese Zen gardens. A birdhouse and bird feeder will serve to attract chickadees and wrens. In the future, classes from Waterloo and other universities can use the garden as a learning resource, Mr. Darney WBS a founding partner in Canada’s first environmental consulting firm, a member of various organizations, and received awards for his many achievements,

The Gift of “Friendship” .by Linde

Take heed students! An opportunity exists to make a worthwhile contribution.to an exciting program in the Waterloo erea. The- Canadian Mental Health ASsociation (CMHAJ, in conjunction with the Waterloo County Board of Education, is once again looking for eligible students who are wiiling to VCJlunteer one to three hours per week to befriend an elementary school child. The Friends Volunteer Pro,gram matches volunteers with children who would most benefit from a warm and accepting reiationship to enhance the child’s feelings of confidence, security and self-esteem. These children are selected by their teachers for various reasons ranging from social immaturity and shyness to anxiety, withdrawal and excessive fear. Volunteers

sought

should

possess. special skills which would help a child overcome particular difficult iea. Primaril , child-volunteer meetings ta 51e place at the school with time spenttalking, drawing and playing games to encourage a gradual, trusting acquaintance to develop. With permission

from the school principal, activities away from school can also be arranged. Such an experience would be new for most university students but the school teachers, principals, Friend8 co-ordinatars and consultants are supportive and rea&ly available to give any assistance. A volunteer is asked to make a one year commitment to the Friends program so that the child can benefit from a secure and stable environment. However, weekly meetings are arranged at flexible timea suitable to a busy university schedule. An informative workshop has been set for early November to assist new volunteers with familiarization to the program. Upon completion of a one-year stay with Friends, the volunteer is awarded a CMHA Service Certificate. While co-op students definitely benefit from volunteer work listed on their resumes, certain pyofeasors are now beginning to award bonus marks to students involved in community activities. If ybu wish ‘to become involved in the Friends program then contact Bette Simard at 742-4300.

Student aid in need of reforms by Michsal Old Researcher Canadian Federation of Studente reprinted with permission from the Canadian Association of University Teachers Bulletin The Mulroneygovarnment has had a mixed record on accessibility issues. The majority of policy development undertaken by this administration has only occurred since the National Forum on Post-Secondary Education held October 1887 in Saskatoon. The student financial aid system in Canada is in dire need of reform, The legislation guiding the federal plan, the Canada Student Loans Act, was enacted in 1904 at a time when the demographics of the student population were radically different. In the first year the program was in effect slight1 over a quarter of full-time stu B ents were assisted. The average loan was $650,

The average yearly loan per student is $2,835. In 1964 the average loan was $650, Twent -one years later, aImost ha r f of Canada’s 500,00C~ full-time post-secondary students use the program and the average yearly loan per student is $2,835 [Quebec opts out of the program and are not included in these figures]. The demographic changes in the student population are not in numbers alone. The participation rate of the 18-24 year age group hes increased dramatically in this period from about 10 per cent to 24 per cent. The last few years have seen students from outside this age group enroll in increasing numbers. The full-time student population is becoming older and, significantly, consist8 of a larger proportion of women. The Canada Student Loan Plan is, in many ways, a legislative anachronism given these changing demographic realities, This has led to many pressures on the student aid system that did not exist twenty years ago. Changes to the national student assistance plan have been a priority issue for the Canadian Federation of Students over the years - a challenge that has ,been set before the Mulroney government on many occasions since 1984. The first serious considerat ion of these issues by the Mulroney

” Student

lite at the

University

government was at the National Forum on Post-Secondary Education held last October in Saskatoon. Much attention was given to accessibility issues. The longest standing concern has been debt load. A government study released last fall showed that the accumulated debt load of 37 per cent of those students who negotiated a ‘loan in 1985/86 exceeded $5000. Fully nine per cent were over $10,000 in debt. Since the maximum weekly assessment was only raised in 1984, these figures do not fully reflect the higher accumulated loans which v ill have been incurred by students who have started programs since 1984. The prospect of loan debt is a very definite barrier to the post-secondary education prospecta of working class youth and older students wishing to participate in higher education. A related problem has beentha part-time student laaa plan brought in by the previous Liberal government in 1883. The plan is inadequate because interest payments are borne by the student on not very attractive terms. Consequently the plan is only. used by less than one per cent of the 450,000 students who attend universities and colleges part-time. Over 60 per cent of part-time university students are women. The last major change the Liberals made to the plan was an interest relief scheme for graduates experiencing unemployment, This relief can be extended to 18 months rather than the

of Waterloo ‘standard six months after graduation. Use of the plan has tripled sirice its inception in 1983/84, an increase which reinforces concerns about the unmanageable level of debt load which graduating students are facing. Clearly the educational mortgage facing students is in dire need of attention.

grants rather than loans. Former Secretary of State David Crombie convened an advisory group to review student issues in the fall of 1987. The CFS welcomed this. initiative and made the following suggestion8: -that the interest relief plan be extended to include the underemployed, those articling or involved in apprenticeships, and, those with child care responsibilities; -that relief from excessive debt loads be provided including the possible scaling of the loan repayments; I -that the part-time student loan ’ be put more OR par with the fulltime program including the def-’ erral of repayment until the student is no longer in attendance at a post-secondary institution,

science and technology strategy of the government, a scholarship program has been set up to enundergraduates in courage science and engineering. Half of the 2,500 scholarships will be given to women to bolster their traditionally lower numbers in these fields. While this new program is an encouraging mc~ve toward better representation of women in science and engineering, it does not address some deeper problems of equal gender participation in academia. Unfortunately, the strapped research councils have little room to maneuver in terms of innovative programs to increase the participation of women at the graduate and postgraduate level. Underlying this mixed record on accessibility issues is the Mulroney government’s willing33888 to at least implicitly sup-

ReA8W

The CFS has always held the position that there should be a national system of grants rather than loans. A response to these problems and suggested reforms to the Canada Student Loan Program were expected last spring but the sudden resignation of Mr. Crombie delayed any announcement. The CFS expects an announce& ment from Secretary of State Lucien Bouchard this fall. Discussions of accessibility at the National Forum on Post-Secondary Education also pointed to certain groups which are particularly under-represented in higher education: disabled students, frsncophones outside of Quebec, native students and women. The National Educational Association for Disabled Students have expressed concern about the lack of a coherent assistance plan for disabled students nationally. Problems of access for francophones outside Quebec has been recognized by the Federal government and is currently being studied. As part of Innovaction, the

Add to that one of the recommendations of the university committee of the National Advisory Board on Science end Technology to the Prime Minister (Lortie Report), The Lortie Report suggested tuition be allowed to rise to $2500 a year in order to support excellence in universities. It is unreasonable to expect students to incur long-term atudent aid debt to support shortfalls in government funding to post-secondary education. It will do grievous damage to the lucational opportunities of ly Canadians,

Carolyn Duke, a UW Math Computer Science Co-op student, is one of 17 students from Canada, India, and the U.S. to win a 1988 David 1. Von Hagen Scholarship for outstanding deaf students. ’ Duke uses speech, lip-reading z~nd listening skills in order to overcome the hearing imp&merit she has faced since birth. “I can hear, but I find it difficult to pick Qut indiiidtial sounds++‘says Duke, who prefers a quiet environment and face-toface communication when talking to friends. In class, she finds that teachers move too much for her to understand everything they say. She compensates by writing notes from the board and by asking professors to write down pertinent information such as A fast reader, assignments, Duke also spends a lot of time studying her textbooks. Duke has been main-streamed in regular classrooms since element ary school, and received specialized auditory training until high school. At the time, Duke found auditory training a frustrating experience. “They teach you sign language. Try going out into the world and finding other people who know sign language!” says Duke. “Some people try to sign to

al-

phabet. I tell them that 1 don’t

what they’re talking .1, During auditory training, Duke was discouraged from lipreading; instructors sometimes hid their mouths with paper. Consequently, Duke learned lipreading on her own. “Lip-reading is not 100 per cent accurate,” cqmments Duke. “It’s hard to teli &nsonants like b and p....Heari-n# is also very important.” .: In her spare &me, Duke attends horse shows at various Ontario circuits and shows her own horse, a thoroughbred which she bought in high school. The David 1. Van Hagen Scholarship is not Duke’s first award. In 1986, Duke received a Rene Descartes Fellowship, In high school, the Nepean, Ontario, resident’ also won a city-wide accounting contest, and placed first in high school mathematics contests in grades 10, 11 and 12. This year, Duke has renewed an IMASCO scholarship for Disabled Students. The David J, Van Hagen Scholarship is administered by the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf, an international nonprofit organization based in Washington, II.C. Founded by the inventor of the telephone, this organization is dedicated to improving opport unit ies for hearing-impaired people. lcc;uy

Ann Simonton

Continued from page -4 Other images of women conveyed by the media cited by Simont o n include “the scatterbrained housewife” who can’t cope with a backed-up sink; the queen of leisure; the demure, mannerly lady; and the accessary, that awesome babe who aeems to come along with that luxurious mattress or trip to Jamaica, Simonton’s message is strong and clear: sexuality is something to be celebrated, not reviled, but women have to regain control of their identity, of their bodies, of the right of defining themselves and what it means to be beautiI ful. Censorship, Simonton maintains, is not the answer: Media Watch’s stance is defiantly anticensorship and pro-nudity to the point of provoking arrests by protesting topless. Furthermore, sexual repression is the root of a great deal of the objectification .<‘...‘. .::;: .::,&:.:.,.p . : $ggg&& . .,--

of women and perversion surely the cases of Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart are proof of this. Turning the healthy sexual response into a taboo, a forbidden evil, has only secured a lucrative future for pornography, as .sexuality has become an object of fascination to be enjoyed vieariously and as many of the frankly disgusting slides taken from Penthouse and Hustler show, pornography cannot necessarily be equated with erotic& To return to the question posed at the outset, Simonton’s answer would be a resounding “Yes.” If we truly want to effect a constructive change in the presentation of women in the media and society, what we need is an even more drastic change in the attitudes we have toward the roles of the sexes and a greater awareness of society’s and the media’s perception of women.

The scenerio: Tuesday night+ Sipping Red Barons downstairs at the Albion in Guelph again. A friend casually remarks on the atmosphere: “This place is like the Twilight Zone or something.” Little did either of us realize how accurately he had just foreshadowed the live entertainment, Shortly after 10 p.m. we made our way upstairs. Performing tonight was a group of six individuals from New York City who call themselves the False Propbets. Right after the initial vocal outbursts from the Albion’s virtually non-existent sound system, it was obvious that this weird show was going

Weird, man to be dominated by the presence of a singer named Stephen Ielphi, This madman gives a new meaning to the word deranged. After he finished trampling on a tapestry of ]esu~, he continued to “entertain” by jumping around,

writhing on the floor like a demonic psychotic and continuously exhibiting his obsession with stage props. In addition to utilizing various hats, masks, dolls and toy guns, Stephan danced with a plastic skeleton, wore a bird cage on his head and produced other items such as Freddy Krueger fingernails, a dildo, a gas-pump nozzle and a God Bless America license plate. Unfortunately, by the end of the first set the props were getting rather tiring and to a lesser extent, so was the music. Music? Yes, the False Prophets, who have two albums out on Alternative Tentacles, do play music and rather original music at that. Take the itistrumentation for example. New additions to the group were Heather Hardy, a classically trained musician who played violin and keyboards, as well as rhythm guitarist Steve Taylor. Both have been with the Prophets for only a month and have yet to realize their potential contributions to the sound. The rest of the band consists of ac-

complished lead guitarist Debra Adele, potent bassist Anthony Sepulveda [who at one point played his bass with a cymbal), and Thomas Hamilton who pounded away on the skins despite having a.broken leg. A couple of blasts from a trombone and a harmon’ica augmented the proceedings as well. What is the result of this uni-

Eclectic mix que combination? Their two sets consisted of everything from inyour-face hardcore/thrash, to slower melodic tracks that were practically ballads. Add to this, occasional doses of funk, reggae, and experimentation to complete the spectrum. Too often, however, the band reverted to a aimple, distorted, post-punk rumble that served mainly as a background for Stephan’s verbal rantings. The guy can actually sing quite well; although, he frequently prefers to talk, growl and yell. The lyrics are strongly entrenched in the tradition of anarchy and revolution, but creative contexts are used to get the message across. The show’s second last song was a surprising cover of Peter Gabriel’s Bike

which was 8 basically trashed. Their intentions were honest enough, but at this point in the concert Stephan’s voice was just about gone, His futile attempts to hit the proper notes were grotesque and this undermined anything the musical interpretation had to offer. Luckily, the combo redeemed themselves with a rave-up for a final tune. Despite some problems, the concert provided a refreshing blast of songs, performed by enthusiastic people and most in attendance had a great time. Those who didn’t make it will have another chance when the False Prophets return to Cuelph in early November (either the 4th or 5th, I forget) for an all ages affair which will likely take place at U of G. Watch Hip Happenings for details because this is a band well worth experiencing.

Was Jesus married? Did he ‘have children? Did he survive the crucifixion? Last week I reviewed the film “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Near the end of the article 1 boldly stated another would be forthcoming+

estranger than fiction The Emperor Constantine can rightly be said to be the “savior” of the church. He is responsible for the church rising from obscurity to domination of the empire. In 325A.D. he convened the Council of Nicea where the ecclesiastical structure of the future church was formulated. Among other important decisions, the counsel declared that ems was I God and not a morta prophet. The vote was 218 for, 2 against. Twenty three years after Diocletian burned Christian Scrip-

Jesus Barabbas has been interpreted as Jesus bar Rabbi and Jesus bar Abba, both suggesting “family ties”. As to the crucifixion, many problems surround the story as we find it in the Gospels.

Most /important to our present discussion, in 331 A.D. the Emperor commissioned and financed new copies of the Bible. This edition, the foundation of all future editione, reflects the council of Nicea’s priorities for the effective establishment and promotion of a religion, All this is recorded history; evidence of editing and revision has come with close scrutiny of the Gospels and our increasing knowledge of the period they depict, In the promotion of a universal God, all traces of political and dynastic elements of Jesus the man were by necessity removed. It is these subtle hints of both B political and dynatitic Jesus who in reality was married, had children and survived crucifixion that are seriously considered by many authors.

burns books I will outline some observations made by various authorities. The term “Messiah” meant the “anointed one.” All kings and priests, even Roman-appointed ones, had this title. For Jesus to remain unmarried as an adult would not only be highly unusual, it would have disqualified him aa a rabbi. Judaic custom of thetime made marriage mandatory for a rabbi; celibacy was -condemned. Mishnaic law states “An unmarried man may not be a teacher.” A number of authors present the interesting idea that Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany are the same person, and that Jesus was married to this woman. The figure of Lazarus, brother of “Mary,” would then be Jesus brother-in-law, adding a new dimension to their seemingly special relationship. The

Furthermore, Geza Vermes’ Jesur the Jew tells us that the silence on Zealots indicates later editin and also discusses at some f ength Jesus’ marital etatus. Dr. Morton Smith’s lesua the Magician outlines in great detail the proliferation of mystery cults in Jesus’s time and how his life and activity would fit into it. P. Winter’s On the Trial of Jesus raises many questions surrounding the trial and crucifixion, William E. Phipps book, Was Jams Married? discusses Jesus’ relationship with Mary. In Hugh J. Schonfield’s book, The Passover Plot, the possibiiity of a hidden political agenda in Jesus’s activities is presented. It also looks at the possibility the crucifixion was “staged.” Finally, there is a body of Christian literature, called the Nag Hammadi Scrolls. In ll351 the scrolls were discovered in Egypt, The scrolls date from before 150 A.D., having escaped later censorship; they are quite revealing. They were written for an Egyptian rather than a Roman audience, and the authors have included Jews fleeing the war with Rome forty years after Jesus activities. In The Treatise of the Great Seth we are told Jesus was never crucified; a substitute went in his place. We are also told of a rift between the male and female followers of Jesus. “Did he really speak privately with a woman and not openly to us? Are we to

turn about and all listen to her? Did he prefer her to us?” This complaint is voiced by Peter about Mary and is found in The Gospel of Mary. In The Gosipsl of Philip we read: “And the companion of the Savior is Mary Magdalene. But Christ loved her more than all the dis‘ciples and used to kiss her often on her mouth, The rest of the disciples were offended by it and expressed disapproval. They said to him, “Why do you like her more than all of us?” The Savior answered and said to them “Why do I not love you like her?” The above quotations are from The Neg Hammrdi Library in English. I mentioned two books ‘last week. The Holy Blood and Thb Holy Grail is perhapa the most complex and compelling piece of investigative research I have ever read.

Islam holds Jesus in very high regard; he is one of the 171 Prophets starting with Adam and ending with Mohammed. Muslims have always been uncomfortable with the fact that Jesus alone wasn’t married. Marriage was part of every other prophet’s life and is seen to be important. As to the crucifixion, Surah IV no,157 states “They slew him not nor crucified, but it appeared SO unto him; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pupsuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.” ’ At the end of all the study it seems

Much has been made of the Primitives and their fresh approach to pop music. ‘%olIocks,” I say; these cats aren’t doing too much that hasn’t been done before. Sure they play simple pop

in an unadorned, straight-ahead style. The lyrics are pretty simple boy-girl stuff. The tunes are catchy and hook-laden, the kind that make you sure you’ve heard them somewhere before. But there’s nothing here that has a real spark, somehow the music is missing that essential something that a decent song needs to be meat. That said, Lovely is still a pleasant listen. Not much to make you cringe, nothing to send a chill up your spine and little to send you scurrying to your local record emporium. There are a few songs that stick in your head: the single, crush and Spocehead are both fairly hep but neither is worth selling the farm.

Hot on the heels of Bedrock, Jim Thirwell’s foray into the world of lounge muzak, comes Thaw; under the guise of Foetus Interruptus, Thirwell whips up a brutai storm of noise and voice on some tracks, and experiments further with the lounge sludge he’s recently been interested in. On the leadoff track, Don’t Hide It Provide it, Jim exhorts the listener to stop whining and get his/ her act toget her. He later displays his brilliant songwriting skills in relating the story of a Clansman on the rampage in Hauss-on-F& On side two, Jim shows he’s not all bluster on the relatively subdued Fratricide Pastorale, bashes his way through Barbecfwire Turn bleweed, and explores new ethnic territory on !Chingoda!. The album closes with A Prayer for My De&, and if you’ve read this far, you’ve probably already bought it. If not, be forewarned, this is Clint’s ace in the Hole; he’s really hit the Nail on the head with this one. It sure would be a Calumit y if Jim were to stop making records. I know I’d be Crushed.

by Greg Clow

by John Hym=s Imprint staff Early this summer I was at a party at Trevor Blair’s pad in Toronto where I met a drunken Irishman. He went on and on about how unbelievably incredible the Hothouse Flowers were and about how they were fhe most important band in Ireland at that point, 1 took his ranting8 with a grain of’ salt, but made a note to search them out. Now it is fall and the Hothouse Flowers are reaping what they have sown in North America. They are proof that hype is not necessarily unwarranted: the Hothouse Flowers are among the elite of music in that they deserve the lauding of both the press and the press releases. The Hothouse Flowers’ first album, People, is among the best debut albums of the year. It is one of those albums that you love at first listen; the Hothouse Flowers require no incubation

time, Liam O’Maonlia’s voice, though hardly unique as a Castella or a Reed, is the driving, force behind their sound, searching for a common ground between Gaelic rock and soul and gospel and what ever else the inquisitive attentive mind finds in their music. But the‘ amazing thing is that the band presents nothing all that new: they ‘blend Waterboy - influenced lyrics. with the soulful and brassy sound of the Style Council, sans the hard edge of Paul Weller’s commie rhetoric. They excel in this well-tread area. As .commercial releases go [make no mistake - this ain’t alternative; it is as commercially aimed as Springsteen), it is head and shoulders above the rest because of song writing talent and pure musical excellence. From the self effacing opening ‘cut I’m Sorry to the homiletic closing piece Feet on the Ground, People is solid. 1 would be hard pressed to recommend an album more than this one: there is something for everyone ,and a hell of a 1st for those whose musical tastes are decided by radio and video programmers* The Hothouse Flowers, like Midnight Oil earlier this year, have it within their power to transform the commercial airwaves for the few minutes they are played. And I say more power to that.

“To hell with any bullshit.” So proclaimeth Puppy in the liner notes of their latest offering, They are not happy men, and they want everyone to know it, so here they come with all the subtlety of a pneumatic drill upside your head, homeboy. No one can blame them, really, as they have experienced a lot of the aforementioned cow feces of Iate, For example, Capitol refused to distribute the first single off of this LP unless it was renamed. This means Dogshit (as it is titled on the LP) has been renamed Censor for the 12 inch release. Meanwhile, the battle goes on with both Canadian censort (who continue to ban Skinny Puppy’s “offensive“ videos) and Canadian critics who, despite Puppy’s acceptance as first class multi-media artists in Europe and elsewhere, still label them as post-punk-dance-trash fit only for pale 15 year old waifs who wear black. Well, it appears they’re mad as hell and they’re not going take it anymore. VIVfeactVI is undoubtedly Pu py’s nastiest releasti to, date, 1 oth lyrically and musically, Besideb the relatively mellow Testure (which sounds frighteningly Depeche-ieh), this album is an aural assault, “Play this music loud or not at all” threaten the liner notes; this is advice well taken. It’s loud, it’s scary, and if you want, you can even dance to it. Kind ‘of like

some sort of demonic hip-hop from hell, As for the lyrics, they mesh quite well with the music. Never one to mince words, singer/growler/lyricist Nivek Ogre battles several themes this time out. His themes include chemicals - both as used in warfare VX Gas Attack and as abused as stimulants Human Disease animal cruelty (Testurej, . and AJ.D.S [State Aid). He’s not very nice about it, either.

Decent tunes, yes, hut their cheeky brat bit is getting a little tired - besides, Pop Will Eat Itself [whom The Wonder Stuffacknowledge as role models) carry it off far better by passing over the threshold from irreverence to perversity. by Chris Wdakcu Imprint staff Maybe I’ve just OD’d on all the British independent pop that’s been making the rounds lately, but I’m having a bit of trouble figuring out the fuss made over The Wonder Stuff (although, admittedly, they’re on a major label now which might even see them released in Canada).

The b&c atmosphere und a~titude of VW’hsctW can be nicely summarized in the final four words of State Aid “Thunk you/Fuck you.”

When this act does work, though, as in It’s Your Money I’m After, Baby (“Forget about your heart/It’s your bank I wart to break), the results can be scintillating and a whole mess o’ fun.

Occasionally, everything comes together in an awesome burst of pop energy; A Wish Awuy. is virtually everything you could ask for in a pop single with impassioned singing, musical abandon, and one of those tunes that make you positively tingle all over, It’s moments like this that raise The Wonder Stuff above most of the rest of the pack and make one tend to be a little more indulgent toward their shortcomings.

Elsewhere, they seem late That Petrol Emotion’s of incendiary noise-pop cate ballads with mixed Rue The Day is a enough lark, but they

Van Gogh film by Gramme Imprint staff

Rtppler

I

Throughout the film Vinceni one obtains an overriding sense of the doom lurking in the future of the lsth Century Dutch artist, Vincent Van Gogh. His life as an artist began late, after a failed attempt to become a clergyman, when he was aged 30 years. Seven years and 1800 works later, he was no longer alive+ During those prolific years of painting, Van Gogh explored Europe withzest and intensity, as if any given moment of his life would be his last. The sites of his inspirations ranged from GrootZundert, the Hague, and Paris, to Arlea, St. Remy, and Auvers, where he eventually died, But it was a turbulent period . for the impressionist, his loneliness, isolation, and complete, withdrawal into his world of artistry only exposed through letters to his brother, Theo.

475 KING STREET NORTH WATERLOO 884-0220


‘d$:SPORTS SO C LOS’E! by Mike McGraw Imprint staff It seemed too good to be true, something just had to happen - and it did, With their first victory in four years (28 games) starihg them in the face last Saturday, the , Waterloo Warriors football team watched it fizzle away. Down 20-10 to the York Yeomen at Seagram’s Stadium with two seconds remaining on the clock, UW lined up for a 3a-yard field goal. But the gods were frowning on Waterloo once again. A bad snap broke placekicker Peter Tchir’s concentration and his kick into a gale force wind sailed wide. Greg Macdonald ran it out of thednd zone to preserve the Yeomen’s first win of 1988, dumping Waterloo to u-4 and sole ownership of the OUAA basement.

Tchir kicked four field goals “He might have had a chance on the last. one,” said UW teach Chuck MeMann, “but it was a bad snap. (Holder] Tom Sheidow did a good job just to get it up.” The Warriors rode the strength of four Tchir field goals (33, 23, 26 and 27 yards) and a touchdown strike bi back-up pivot Mike Wright to build a 19-17 lead by the end of the third quarter. Although this uncharacteristic offensive outburst erased a 17-8 halftime defecit, three fourth quarter turnovers sealed the Warriors’ fate, Early in the fourth quarter, running back Orville Beckford coughed up the ball on Waterloo’s 21- ard line. Two plays later, York’s Paul PT acko, nailed the eventual game-winning 33-yard field -goal, Two potential Waterloo scoring drives in the last five minutes were squashed by blunders, Wright fumbled a snap on a third down gamble+ and was intercepted by Peter Palmerio on the next drive. The final . drive ended with Tchir’s ill-fated boot. “We just made too many mistakes,” said a sombre McMann, shaking his head, “We fumbled the ball at the wrong times - on crucial plays.”

Win three straight

Hockey Warriors storm pre-season by Peter Dedes Imprint staff The ice hockey Warriors’ offense was a demented wrecking ball. It crushed through opposition defenses’once it got itself unlimbered in the chilly Columbia Icefields. The University of Guelpb squad was beaten 5-2 in Sunday afternoon action. Cross-town rivals, Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks were first delivered the Ghetto Blaster and then a humiliating slapping around as they were thrashed 7-1 Monday night. The Ryerson Rams were Tuesday evening’s lambs led to the’ slaughter. The Warriors delivered an 8-3 knock out punch in the third round to subdue the feisty Rams. You could argue this is just exhibition action. The Waterloo Warrior’s final line up will not be decided until Monday. Head coach, Don McKee and his assistants have the unenviable task of selecting two net minders from six possible starters, The six training camp survivors to this point combined for an incredible 2.0 goals againat average. “I’m a little worried about the blue line though,” says McKee. With ten defense men remaining in camp, two must be pared away. Determining the forwards who will stay won’t be too terribly difficult. with fifteen forwards, McKee and his staff will elect to keep thirteen or fourteen. The trouble is, who are the best nine? Injuries have made it impossible to play all the forwards in one match. i

Close checking

game

Sunday’s game against the Gryphons began with little offense and close checking. John Dietrich placed the puck behind the Guelph netminder from Barnie Skelding and Todd Coulter with 1:58 remaining in the first period, Guelph struck on the powerplay at 6:~ of the second as Waterloo experienced shaky goaltending. At IO:O& Guelph scored again to go ahead 2-1. With less than five minutes remaining in the second frame, Jim David scored an even strength goal assisted by Steve Richard and Clark Day at 1598 tr, knot ’ the match, The third period signaled the end of the Warrior lethargy. Day notched his second point of tha game with an unassisted marker early in the third. The Warriors continued to apply the pressure as Dietrich rammed in his second on a pass from John Goodman. Goodman closed out the scoring at the midway point of the t&d period.

Wik of 5-2, 7-l and 8-3 last week have team aptimistic about the regular season. mot0 Against Wilfrid Laurier, the Waterloo squad again looked slothful in the first frame. Jamie McKee meshed the first of his thtiee goals 1:30 into the first as he slithered in unmolested; The Hawks deadlocked the sleepy Warriors at 7:f9 after sloppy face off play deep in the Waterloo zone. Jamie Maki racked up a powsrplay marker with 4~~9 remaining in the first on a pass from defenseman Steve Richard.

There must have been rattles, building blocks and other toys in the penalty box Tuesday night. Doug Wilson, refereeing his first OUAA match was fearless in assessing 76 minutes in minor penalties as players seemed lined up for their turn in the play pen.

The Warriors set a furious pace in the second intent on skating the Hawks off the pond. Mckee tallied his second of the match at 16:lO on assists from Maki and Shaw. The Warriors continued the pressure to the end of the period with Jim David counting one‘ with seven seconds left.

Tsandelis scored a soft goal off a weak backhand on the powerplay to open the scoring at 1:44. The Ryerson Rams answered with a powerpley marker of their own to tie the game at I, Steve I,inseman chalked up Waterloo’s second powerplay goal on crisp passes from Clint Ellicott and Chris Glover. The Rams replied with another powerplay goal at 18:lS to tie the match a second time, The Warriors were not content to enter the dressing room deadlocked however and Shaw launched a bullet along the ice with 57 seconds left. The puck screamed it’s way through a maze of legs and sticks to find a home inside the right post.

Dietrich backhanded the rubber to the short side on assists by Muir and.Skalding. The Warriors were determined to finish the game short handed, Rob Judd and Dietrich broke out two on none, Judd feathered a paps to Dietrich who promptly completed the hatrick.

by Craig walker Imprint staff

Shanika is a third year math student from Toronto where she is currently on a work term. She has been a member of the Athsnas tennis team for three years where she plays in the second position for the doubles team and third position on the singles

team.

Shanika is being honoured for her performance against teatis from Guelph and Western. The Waterloo tennis team struggled against a strong Western team, losing seven matches to two but then bounced back, winning all of their matches against Guelph for a score of nine to zero, Shanika helped to lead the Athenas through her strong play, winning both her singles matches against Guelph, 6-2,8-l and 6-2, 6- 1 respectively. Shanika then split her doubles and singles matches against Western, winning her singles match Z-6;8-3, 6-4 and losing a very close doubles match, 6-7, 5-7,

WARRIOR OF THE WEEK PETER TCHIR - FOOTBALL

Last season Shanika and her doubles partner Marcela Krajny finished second overall in the number one seedings of the Ontario University Doubles Tennis Standings. The Athenas, motivated by outstanding performances like Shanika’s are looking forward to a very rewarding season and playoffs.

Peter is a second year Math student from Waterloo, having previously attended high school at Kitchener Collegiate Institute. This is Peter’s first year on the football team, having previously honed his kicking skills on the Warrior soccer team. Peter is being honoured for his performance against York last

weekend. From the position of kicker, Peter helped to put Waterloo on the scoreboard and come very close to earning their first victory in four years. During Waterloo’s heartbreaking loss to York, 20-19, Peter accounted for 13 of Waterloo’s points. Peter displayed his field goal kicking ability by accurately hitting four field goai kicksout of fivq. His other point was obtained via a conversion.

Health and sport should be synonymous. However, what should be and what is are two different things. In recent years, competition to be the very best in sport has forced many athletes to sacrifice their long term health for short term success, When an athlete begins to sacrifice his or her health for his or her sport, the sport fails to fulfill one of its moat basic intentions. If athletes suffer so does the sport. Nowhere was this more evident than with the steroid scandalin this year’s marred Olympics. It is a fact that physiologists overwhelmingly agree that steroids, even in small controlled doses, can cause serious health problems. Users of steroids increase their chances of arthritis, liver damage and bacterial infection. The potential for the spreading of cancer within the body is also greater. Additionally, steroids are said to make an athletes behaviour more aggressive, and for males, steroids can cause impotence, Certainly sport without steroids can cause health problems; however, there is a definite difference between having severely changed knees as a consequence of playing hockey and becoming less horny because of a drug one has taken, Any sport that demands the eventual destruction of the body through drugs cannot retain its integrity. Such is the case with weightlifting in Olympic competition. More sports, such as track and field, could suffer the same fate especially in wake of the Ban lohnson tragedy. The entire steroid dilemma is extremely paradoxical. Supposedly, we live in a society that is health conscious. If this is the case why are ao many athletes taking steroids? Obvious1 the only conclusion that can be drawn is that personal healt 3: is o.f very little concern to steroid using athletes compared to&mpetitive success. Furthermore, excellent physical conditioning in sport is not an end in itself. Unfortunately it becomes a means that can be abused toward victory. As long as steroids are used, health and competitive sport will have ahout as much in common as nutrition and McDonald’s,

Walker played exciting singles matches while Tracey Goldhar and Paul Hadden gained valuable points in the number three doubles position, Waterloo had much more difficulty with Western. Kim Branford, playing in the number two singles position and Shanika De Alwis, in the number four singles position, played very consistently. Both outlasted their opponents and gained victories in three-set matches.

Last weekend saw the Warrior waterpolo teem descend on Hamilton for probably their hardest tournament of the ear. McMaster, the defending c Hampions, and a University of Toronto team saturated with national players,. were scheduled to square off for the first round of competition. York, a team the Warriors had lost to six consecutive times, were up for the third game. Waterloo had the unfortunate luck of playing the Mac Baters in the first of the three games. The Warriors had hoped to catch the Baters napping an this early Sunday morning, The upset, however, was not meant to be. After spotting McMaster a 10 goal first half lead, the Warriors came out in the second half just hoping to survive, Led by Jeff Slater and rookie Marc Creaghan’s first goals, followed by two goals from Scott Murray and Dan Stpatton and Norbert Mol-

nar with one a piece, Waterloo was able to tie the second half for a 15-6 loss. Inspired by their second half performance, the team headed into their second game with Toronto. Waterloo, intimidated by the Blues unbelievably stacked squad, played scared. The defence was virtually nonexistant, which caused the team to suffer a horrifying decimation. Finally, relief for the now exhausted Warriors came in the game against York. With no national and junior national players to contend with, the quality of play returned to a somewhat reasonable nature. Waterloo, for the first time, seemed to have matured and played as a team swimming hard and tiring the Yeomen in the first half. In spite of the carnage going on underneath the water instigated by the Yeomen, Waterloo persevered and came out victorious by a score of Q-7. Norbert Molnar led the game with five go&, he was aided by

Jeff Slater and Scott Murray each with two, Keith Beckley’s sparkling defense using his huge wing span to steal innummerable York passes, and solid goaltending by Tom Meyer, consumated the conquest. Special mention should go to Gord Head, 8 talented rookie from London, who worked at both ends of the pool in all three games and whose expertise lead to several of Waterloo’s goals, Absent from play this time was one of the team’s leading scorers Michael Cash. Cash, suffering from a broken finger is confident that recovery won’t take as long as anticipated, and doesn’t plan to miss another opportunity to physically educate Some poor unexpscting rival rookies as to just what the game of waterpolo is about, The team travels to Queen’s next weekend to play theeastern . division. An excellent showing is needed in their four games to propel them toward a playoff position.

After posting some impressive results in exhibition play last week, the Athena field hockey team suffered disappointing defeats in their first two regular season games on Saturday. On Guelph’s home turf, the Athenas were outscored 6-3 by a sizzling Gryphon squad. Maria Barges slid one past goaltender, Lori Parent to open the scoring for Guelph. Waterloo’s Maureen Owens tipped in a shot by the Guelph keeper to knot the game at 1. The first half remained deadlocked.

“Arch 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, check OOO!!l” If you belong to the IJW skydiving club, then you know what these words are all about. It means that you probably had the greatest thrill of your life and that jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 3000 feet is not that crazy after all. Just ask the 30 or so people that have already made their first parachute jump (without incidence) on September 24 at SWOOP (South Western Ontario Organization of Parachutists), located just outside of Grand Bend. SWQQP is a non-profit organization made up of people who just want to sky dive for the fun of it.

Clu’b presents thrill of lifetime with large and modern square for the students. parachutes There are over fifteen nationally certified instructors that can teach first jump courses as well as other progression techniques.

Sport Parachuting is increasing its popularity each year as more people are finding

Retention rate is low out just what the sport is all about. The retention rate is very low [less than 5 per cent), since most people just go for the once in a lifetime experience to say

The Skydiving club goes up to the drop zone every weekend, weather permitting. Some just go for the day while others bring their sleeping bag to make a weekend out of it. Along with regular jumping activities, taking a cool relaxing dip at the beach (just a couple of minutes away] is also a popular idea in the warmer weather. After sunset, it’s out to the campfire with a couple of coolies before turning in for the night. _ Last weekend we had about ten of the first jumpers returning for more jumps.
