by Henrietta Veerm811 Imprint steff This week, Imprint received a letter to the editor concerning the incidence of sexual assaults occurring at the Dana Porter Arts Library, “I don’t know if there have been or not,” said Arts Library director Murray Shepherd, of the reported incidence of sexual assaults. Campus police confirmed three indecent exposures occurred this past year, but no aexual assaults. “Psycholagically, effects of indecent exposure can be just as alarming to someone,” says Crime Prevention Officer Marshall Gavin. Legally, a sexual assault is defined as any intentional use of force against another person\ without his or her consent. An indecent act by definition, can happen in a public place in’ the presence of one or more persons, or in any place, with the intent to insult or offend any person. Campus police see no cause for alarm.I

“All three cases were solved,+’ says Sergeant Brian Bradley. “Two people have been charged... The courts wouldn’t accept the charge.” “Considering the number of people going through the library, three incidents over a year doesn’t seem to be a problem. If there is a problem, th&n people have not been reporting incidents,” Bradley said. When asked if anything would vicbe done to warn potential tims of this situation, such as putting up a sign, Shepherd-replied, “That assumes a sign could be worded in such a way to be effective,” “I don’t choose to put a high profile on it. One reason it occurs is to attract attention, for reasons that are not healthy. * - Over the _years, security . has _I been - entirely successful with the approach used.” “Our peopte try to walk through the libraries when they get a chance, but this is not regular at all,” says Bradley. “It’s not a matter of tightening things / up, but reporting inci&nts,“‘.4 _, A.,: d’ ; 51; .

Tuesday afternoon pegged Turnbull at 13,134 to Carroll’s 8,318 votes. Carroll was reported visibly shaken at some point when she visited Brian Turnbull’s election celebration at the Waterloo Inn. Turnbull andCarroll concur that what people really wanted was chhnge. Turnbull also feels he was given a mandate because the electorate wanted less secreky on decisions made at city hall. At least five successful catididates who appear to understand student issues round out the eight member council. Councillor Lynn Woolstencroft was the number on6 vote-getter at 12,850. Councillor Andrew Telegdi ‘received a strong mandate with 11,350 votes. Turnbull, Woolstencroft, Telegdi, and

Mary Jane Mewhinney who ia considered somewhaj of a ‘Carroll old guard member’ also go on to represent the city at the regional council level. Besides Turnbull, ‘Telegdi and Woolstencroft, both Robert Brown and Susan Forwell are the other two faces which may represent better city/student relations in the future. Overall, the council looks like they are bound to be energetic, said, Wendy Rinella, Federation of Students vice-president (university affairs). Brown and Forwell are two of the five newcomers to the council which may have been elected ‘at large’ for the last time. Water; loo residents passed a referendum question by supporting a ward systein for Waterloo that would replace the current atlarge system, Residents voted 10,790 in favour of a ward system, while 9,788 indicated a preference for maintaining the system where people may vote for all candidates regardleEs of neighbourhood zoning. Defeated student candidate Shane Carmichael of UW says a ward system may improve student voter turnout. Students would then be able to latch on to one councillor as a representative of a student constituency, he said. Both Federation vice-president’s -Carmidhael and Rhella have reservations about the type of ward system which may be introduced, They are worried that high 8reas. of student concentration will be intentionally split up to reduce student power at the polls. The Ontario Municibal Board is scheduled to decide on the fate of the ward system in the new year; however, Mayor-ele‘ct Turnbull indicates pushing back

that deadline may be in the best interest for working out the mechanics of any proposal. UW Professor Terry Downey of the Political Science department stated that this was the liveliest election in some time. In Kitchener, Dom Cardillo was returned as mayor with 17,458. His cIosest, rival was Alderman Richard Christy who managed to appeal to 15,530 voters. According to Christy, he may not have lost had David Kresky and Veronica Warner not further polarized the results with their 4,586 and 1,974 votes respectively.

It is too early to estimate how many students turned out at the p$lls; however, only 200 allegedly voted in the Campus Centre polling station. On-campus residents were eligible to vote in the C.C. which renders a statistic of 200 out of a possible 4,000,

to use Car-

michael’s 3,737 votes as a barometer to how many students cast ballots; but, Carmichael asserts that a significant portion of his total is represented by community support. Certainly, though, it is safe to say that less than 4,000 students voted. In 1985, estimates pegged the student rate at around four per cent

of its potentiat turn-out rate. There is little encouragement that university student turnout increased in 1988, This year’s municipal election also saw two councillors lose their seats, Councillors John Shortreed and Dorothy Schnarr finished in the 9th and 10th position.

The company’s donation, valued at $200,000 (retail) will be distributed to students involved in Project Aries to support teaching of a variety of courses. Dr. Don Cowan, UW computer science professor is the director of Project Aries. Microcomputers have become so important to education that Cowan “foresees a time when virtually every university student in Canada will have one.” “We at Waterloo are using computers as an aid in teaching a variety of subjects,” says Cowan, “including not ‘uet computer science but mat A ematics, science, engineering, English, f:;e:iology.II geography...and The ‘new NEC gift will allow Project Aries to continue adapting more and more courses to computerized teaching.

After completing this work, students return to the stations to feed it back into the network. The assignments are then checked by their professors. Printouts are also available at the filling stations.

Simpson went on to serve as a Parliamentary Intern in Ottawa. As a reporter with the Globe and Mail, he has covered national and international politics as European Bureau Chief, and Ottawa Bureau Chief: he has also be/en a frequent guest on both English and French CBC television. His previous book, DiscipZine of Power, outlined the rise and fall of Joe Clark’s minority government and won the Governor-General’s Award for Non-Fiction while lasting on the Best-Sellers List for more than six mont ha. In Spoils of Power, Simpson traces the trail of patronage through the entire history of Canadian political experience, from the seedy times of John A, Macdonald when a vote could be purchased for a glass of whiskey, to the shadowy times of the Mulroney administration when charges of conflict of interest and impropriety were a dime-adozen. In his skillful examination of both the contemporary and historical record, .Jeffrey Simpson displays why he is emerging as the premier journalistic commentator in Canada. His daily column is regarded as “required reading in the corridors of power” of this nation; I: suggest all concerned citizens at UW plan to attend what should be an insightful lecture. _

More dignity. for the disabled by Iohn MacFarlane Imprint rt&ff “Acceseibility in a dignified manner which is easy to use” is the major concern of disabled students at UW according to Florence Thomlison, Co-ordinator of Services for Disabled Persons. She rates accessibilit on campus by noting “I don’t ii rag about it, but I don’t apologize.” One major problem restricting disabled student services is that the service presently receives no government funding and is allotted money from the UWs Plant Operations budget under major and minor renovations. The dis. able*d student seririce assists roughly MO students on campus, Thomlison feels a separate budget for her department would allow her to take on some larger endeavours. “Right now we are working on a priority need basis-because we do not have enough money to cover all projects,” she says. Equipment such as special computers with enlarged print or voice synthesizers, handsfree telephones and electric doors are improvements which would allow disabled students to be more independent but for which no funding is currently available. Thomlison’ notes however, that Waterloo is better off than some other universities when it comes to services for disabled students, faculty and staff. “Some universities don’t have program co-ordinators or departments for disabled student servicea,“she stdtih. Often, a

lack of services for the disabled limits the number of universities and programs which a student can choose from. A new attendant-care program situated in Village One provides &hour care which allows students to attend university full-time where their daily needs prevented them from doing so before. Thor&son also points out that all buildings on campus are wheelchair accessible, including the new Davis Centre, “I’m very proud of how students react, I have no problems getting volunteers,” she notes and adds that attitudes toward the disabled have greatly improved since 1981, the Year of the Disabled [this is the Decade of the Disabled]. ‘There is a lot of invisible assistance which is not obvious to people who aren’t disabled,” she says pointing out that small things, like high curbs or lack of handrails, go unnoticed by most students but pose awkward problems for blind students and those in wheelchairs. Thomlison herself is kept busy with orientation of new students, proctoring special exams and mid-terms and raising awareness on campus. There is always a need *for more volunteers however, to read to blind students, to help others travel to and from classes and to raise awareness among other students, She is pleased to bee the libraries offering pickup and delivery of books for disabled,atudents and would like to see more co-operation in this

manner. She stresses that integration is key and promotes ‘reasonable accommodation’ where disabled and non-disabled students work to reach a compromise. As an example of this, Thomlison notes that many classes and offices, such as the Imprint office, are not accessible by wheelchair; however, meeting with a student. in an accessible area would be-. nefit both parties without any great effort. Financial support from students for disabled services has

made up somewhat for the absence of government involvement. Graduating engineering and math classes have helped raise funds for classroom microphone s ‘stems and for wheelchair li Yts for convocation to allows disabled students to receive their degrees with greater dignity. She emphasizes that disabled students do not receive any preferential treatment. “They must meet the same academic standards to gain admission and the services do not give

them an advantage over other students+ but gives them the same opportunities,” she says. Thomlison notes disabled students have a greater motivation to do well and prove what they can do. “They have to do double the work other students do but a university education makes these students more employable and therefore better integrated wi’th the rest of society,” she says. “They are students first and students with disabilities second.”

Municipal slack The headlines of the mainstream media and the city’s two student newspapers urged people to vote; advertisements in those same pages urged students to vote: politicians warned that to be heard, students must vote; candidates signs were a ‘familiar warning a municipal election was near; some wellplaced posters sponsored by UW’s student government rein. forced the idea of voting on November 14; yet, only a pittance of this city’s university students exercised their franchise. . The poor showing at the polls by University of Waterloo students is a serious problem. Hopefully the problem will be identified and an organization will take ste s to ensure we don’t have a repeat performance in 1991, An crwhat organization ought to take these steps you ask? Who else? The Federation of Students as representatives of undergraduates on this campus are obligated to correct this tradition of embarrassment. The Federation of Students, are, after all, the self-proclaimed lobby group of students at city hall. Certainly they are expected during any election to carry on a cam aign of lobbying their own constituents to get out to vote. T R is goes beyond organizing an all-candidates meetin , throwing an ad in, ~,i&wsp&$ and throwing up some p a otocopied signs tglting people to vote on mutiicipal election day. The student newspaper has a role to play as well. The only serious failing of Imprint’s municipal election coverage was that the paper did not emphasize enough as to where off-campus students vote. This may have affected student turn-out considering many people were under the impression that any UW student could vote in the Campus Centre; this was not the case - only students residing on campus were eligible to vote in the CC. UW students need a Federation of Students which is going to visit classrooms telling people to vote. The Feds should create a “get-out-and-vote” audio-visual campaign which can be screened in thesubs (that’s what all that expensive video equipment the Feds bought is for* is it not?]. On this past election day some gung-ho people had a mega hone - Great! Let’s see more of that, and not just on the one f ay the polls are set up.

I had a good laugh when I read Don McCracken’s letter to the editor (Nov. 4). McCracken, is not unlike other students I have talked to that don’t believe the Imprint ran the Doll’s House Ad to raise /the issue of sexism on campus. They’re right of course; the ad wasn’t run to raise the issue of sexism. As a member of the editorial board, I am in the position to correct some of the inaccuracies that’ I feel are in the October 28 editorial. . Yes, there was a debate over the ads, but not until the week of October 21 when the “Betty Boobs” ad was printed. A heated discussion at the weekly staff meeting did little more than make people angry at one another (and in particular at me). It was at this-time that the editor decided to write an editorial on why the ad ran. The first four paragraphs of the October 28 editorial are fine. In paragraph five the editorial states: “Because an advertisement is run in a newspaper does not mean the paper has aligned itself with the measage being delivered to readers,” While this may be theoretically true, it is not true in practice. An advertisement is run to attract attention to a product. In the case of the Doll’s House ad, it advertises strippers. The Imprint’s role is not simply irrelevant in this issue, because it is through the distribution of our paper that this ad makes its way into the hands of its readers. Therefore, to say that a newspaper doesn? align itself. with an advertisement it is running mis-states the trut.h. g The

running in the Imprint? The editorial goes on to say “it is one role of the media to raise the issue of sexism.” I agree, but is running a strip ad the way to do it? Sexism, is a worthy subject of campus debate, but I cannot thfnk of a sillier way of starting a debate, Let’s face it, the Imprint used the “we did it to raise the issue of sexism” editorial to absolve itself of responsibility. Writing to the Doll’s House to get them to remove the ad is a good idea, but the best idea is to get the Imprint to remove the ad, because it is the Imprint that gives this ad access to 15,000 people. Do tell the Imprint to‘cut the ad. As a voice of UW students, shouldn’t the Imprint reflect the supposed ideals of the universitv: that the university communit; will not allow sexism within this paper. The editorial ends by Baying

that “for - those who ‘like+ having realiQ?&&sored frUrIIMbi*$i t Imprint offers nd apology.“~*k+ ing to withdraw the ad is not censoring reality. The Doll’s House ad is just that, an ad. It is not reality. By removing this ad, the Imprint would be eliminating a completely one-sided and unrealistic image of men and women from its paper. To not act, the Imprint is guilty in perpetuating the objectification ‘of men and women, Therefore, I ask once again that the readers voice their concern over this issue, because the ad is still in the paper. Further, 1 would like to suggest that the revenue the Imprint gained by running this ad be donated to the Women’s Centre or a Rape Crisis Centre,

Why should we re-elect a government that calls itself a peacemaker, sending its soldiers/ to keep peace in the Persian Gulf, while it invites the airforces of NATO nations to practice for nuclear war over Quebec and Labrador, land which is home to more than 10,000 Innu people? Why should we re-elect a government that -decries the state of human rights in the East Bloc and South Africa, yet gives millions of dollars, and sells millions of dollars worth of arms, to governments in Latin America including Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador where security

forces operate “death squads” and torture chambers and where the government and army bomb their own populations creating refugees in whose face our government closes the door? s Why should we re-elect a government that supports the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, yet tests the cruise missile, allows nuclear armed ships into Canadian ports, regularly permits nuclear bombers to overfly its territory, and sells most of its exported uranium to states that build nuclear bombs?

Evidhices of God Does physics show a creation by Eric

from nothing?

Koelker

The Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe has some really important implications for what I’m discussing. Lets review the theory first, in case anyone is rusty. .The Big Bang theory states that 9 - 15 billion years ago, the entire universe was compressed into a point of infinite density. From that point of infinite density the universe expanded with extreme force and temperature, an event we call the Bi Bang. The theory states the whole universe is expanding outwar d since it’s explosive origin. This is the only ade uate model in physics to explain how the universe began, and has % een rather well confirmed. The Big Bang is twice predicted by Einstein’s equations, and the background radiation from the Big Bang was discovered in 1965 by Penziae and Wilson. In 1829 Edwin Hubble discovered that light from distant galaxies is redder than it should be, which means they are moving away from us at extreme speed, as predicted by the Big Bang model. Ph sicists have much more physical proof for the Big Bang, but let’s Pook at what they have said about it theoretically. Astronomer Fred Hoyle states the Big Bang requires the creation of matter from nothing, since aa you go back in time, you hit &point where the universe was “shrunk down to nothing at all.” The term “in& nite density” is synon mous with “nothing,” since if it had any size whatever, it could g e even more dense. Richard Gott and three other world famous astronomers wrote in the March 1978, Scientific American, “The universe began from a state of infinite density.., Space and time were created in that event, and so was all the matter in the universe,” So space, time, arid matter were created in the Big Bang, out of nothing, according to the physicists. But that is exactly what the Christian doctrine of creation has said all along! Atheistic scientists recognized this and it repelled them. Eddington wrote ‘The notion of a beginning is repugnant to me... The expanding universe is preposterous,.. incredible... It leavea me cold.” Einstein wrote “This circumstance of an expanding universe irritates me.” This emotional reaction occurred because the obvious question of the Big Bang is, what caused theBi Bang? Physics has no explanation of the cause, except that it ha i to create out sf nothing, and be above space, time, and matter, In response to this tight spot, Sir .Edmund Whittaker, a scientist said, “It is simpler to postulate creation ex nihilo - Divine will constituting nature out of nothingness.” British scientist Edward Milne wrote “AS to the first cause of the universe,.,. that is left for the reader to insert, but our picture is incomplete without Him,” Robert Jastrow, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote in his excellent ,book God and the Astronomers these famous words. “For the scientist who has lived by his faith

mented the past record of UCC regarding industrial safety and has brought out one report titled The Killer Company. Though the name seems to be a bit strange, it prtivides abundant knowledge about similar accidents. Even the Wall Street Journal(Dec. 8, 1985) had reproduced one incident involving UCC. In Galey Bridge Tunnel disaster, 470 workers were killed and 1500 disabled; And here, the gqyernment of India had, whatsoever, nq hand, One may .blame the goveknment of India for not being strict enough or for having an inadequate inspection procedure. What does it mean,that UCC has no responsit)ility at all? To be

more straight forward, if there is some loop hole or deficiency in the laws of a third world country, does Mr. Ghate mean that UCC, along with other multinationals, have the birth right to exploit those loop holes? Who else other than UCC can know better about the nature of their dangerous products? If safety valves are rotten, if control equipment is not functioning, -who is more responsible, the government of India or UCC man,agement?

My letter is in reference to Mr. Amit Ghate’s letter in the Nov. 11 issue of Imprint, He has every right to have an independent opinion, but it is not fair on his part to label WPIRG and other such volunteer organizations as environmentalist scare mongers. How deep is the environmental qrisis in present day’s industrialized world becomes evident from the very fact that U.N. had to set up a commission to look into the matter and suggest appropriate remedies to undo the damage that has already been done to the ecologiqal system. Does Mr. Ghate mean that all this is nothing but a scare mongering stunt? Mr. Ghate puts forward his theory that only the government of India was responsible for Bhopal tragedy and gives a clean chit to Union Carbide.

Sexual harassment at Arts Library -~-

To the editor, The other day, as I was entering the Dana Porter Arts Library at about 6 p.m., I heard the erson on duty at the front dpesk speaking on the phone. He was asking for a security guard to come over, as a student had just been sexually assaulted in the library. Later, when I wai leaving, I asked one of the staff whether the person who had committed the assault had been ap rehended, Fortunately he R ad been. I mentioned that I had heard a rumour that a woman had been sexually attacked on the tenth floor a few years ago and I was told by the staff member that there had been’ a very serious problem involving sexual assaults at that time. This term, there are a number of individuals who. have been sexual1 harassing women in the Arts Li E rary. Some of these peo-

ple have been caught but the problem remains. The purpose of this letter is threefold: 1) tp ask why there aren’t any signs up in the Atits Library warning women about this problem, 2) to advise women to be cautious about where they study in the library. The floors can become pretty deserted almost any time during the day (particularly the upper floors). Of course, the main reason students like to study on the upper floors is because of the silence. If you do want to study on these floors, it is advisable to study with a friend, Otherwise, study on the first, second, or third floors as these appear to be the ones with the most number of people on theti. Finally, I’d like to ask Imprint if they would look into this matter and shed more light onto it.

In the spirit of promoting a “progressive society” and intelligent debate, I offer my opinions on the topic of the day. Beaut contests are symboIic events tK et affirm and promote an ideal of beauty. Since all culttifes d&lop rituala to alebrate their ideals, and western’so&ty puts a great value onJn&vidual achievement, it is &%io tblnk beauty contests can be’ eliminat ed. The beauty contest does not exploit its participents. In exe change for becoming sexual symb&, they receive adoration and monetary gain. Only a sexually re receive moralist would deman x more compensation. The contest hurts all people because it tends to romote attractiveness as a ys Puable asset ih and of itself.

Fine paper recycling makes sense. Using paper to make paper reduces the need for wood pulp, theraby relieving som8 of the demand on our over-used forests.

Nevertheless, there is a dibsimilarity between our country, Canada, and the United States. i have come to discover that what makes me glad to be a Canadian is due largely to the init& tives of the .New Democratic Party. Our social programs such as Medicare and those that .are responsible for gur low crime rate are among the virtues that d.iffErentiate Canada from the U.S. These vastly humane programs which make Canada so distinct are a direct result of the NDP’s poking and prodding of the complacency within our previous governments. How v+aluable the NDP has been to the social progress and human development of this country is pro-

foundly evident. It is truly remarkable to realize what the NDP have achieved while- working within the confines of being a minority. This attests to the benevolent nature ’ of their’ $&cies. Yet, it is n<xt sur-, prising that the NDP-are a &nority. For all thqt is ‘humane’ in humanity will almost always constitute a minority.

One cgnnot help but grow fond of the undertaking which Eric Kuelker took upon his shoulders, that is, to defend the cause of Christianity in the hostile environment of the university. Certainly, many misconception8 have crept into the general public view concerning Christianity as a result of the lack of scholarship and simple-mindedness of those who set out to critique it. However, much of the same criticism could be directed toward the most recent article “Religion has to fit the facts.” I would like to expose several inconsistencies nicely concealed among the proposition8 put forth in the article, and issue a warning to its author that the excess of zeal should never take precedence over the fairness in his treatment ] of. the issues. First of all, I wish to show the enormo.us ambiguity of the premise stating, that any philosophy or religion to be true, must fit the available facts. I take it, that by that premise+ you mean one of the two possible things: either that the facts possess some inherent interpretation in them which the given view must extract; or, that the facts exist as independent entitite, ‘bare particulars’ which could be interpreted in an infinite number of ways. If you mean the latter then, an infinite number of osophies or religions would be true, a conclueion that eventually defeats your very pur.poae. 1 assume that you subscribe to the former view. Now if that

And so, you beg the question. If you know anything about science, you will admit that there is not one single fact that could be uniformly agreed on by all scientists, never mind the public at large.

Blotid testing is expensive and diverts funds from public education programmes that deal with the prevention and control of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, notes Renee Sabattier, the study’s author. Sabattier, Director of the Panos Institute’s AIDS unit, spoke at a news conference in Washington, Oct. 21. Testing of a country’s citizens, and/or of tourists attempting to enter a country, is highly expensive, not 108 per cent reliable, technically very unlikely to keep a nation HIV-free, and diverts funds from the more important tasks of public education and prevention, the report says. For these reasons, as well as Human Rights considerations, the report criticizes certain governments’ moves toward implementing mandatory testing and even quarantines of HIV-infected individuals.

Before you send it, make sure your proof-read,it and correct those mistakes in handwriting, we wouldn’t want them to think we’re sloppy now, would we? ’ For those who don’t want to write a rotten resume, drop by and visit one of the S@de.nt Vocational *Advisors for some a~advice , d:’_” on resmnes ‘and o’iBer”jc&~se$tih sftategies: ’ a

I can’t scratch my head because of the helmet, and the trickling sweat is maddening. Removing the helmet is out of the question. We are a squad of five. EClier, a platoon of twentyfour, we marched into a camp to re-establish order, Tires burn everywhere and the stench of seared rubber pervades. Our nostriIs are clogged with filthy soot, our faces smeared with sweat, -grime, onion (to guard against tear gas] and blood from the barrage of rocks. We held the main junction of Deir El Balah, a fifty metre empty stretch between us and the demonstrators. But I can’t call them demonstrators. It’s more like a barely contained riot. Foreground, two children have burned an Israeli flag, effectively declaring all out ; war. 8 Now, as I have said, we are ’ five, Every offtier has taken his own squad to settle what he considers to be the most inciting situation. Although not an officer, I command my own squad. Our safe zone consists of less than five metres of narrow alleyway. Along all connecting deys, Palestinian teen-agers and young men await us, rocks, spikes, slingshots in hand.

First throwing smoke grenades, we sprint down the alley, becoming entangled in our equipment due to the alley’s narrowness. Screaming and firing rubber bullets we burst upon twenty five Palestinians. Everyone is so. startled that we forget to attack each other. The noise, the smoke, our yelling has be.en to climatic for anyone to go on, Eventually, we give halfhearted chase.. And yet, the picture remains of the mother end her beautiful child, observing from the doorstep. Over the course of four days, Deir- El Balah was reported as containing anywhere between eight and fifteen thousand Palestinian refugees. This figure has fluctuated according to the dramatic effect required by any of the senior officers, ranging from company commander to the overall commander of the Gaza Strip Military Government. For us, it didn’t make much difference. Our numbers,were all too factual. Twenty-six men, including three officers, three sergeants (myself one] and twenty 19-year-old privates.

Salvadorean Non-Governmental Human Bights Commission (CDHES) s oke to a group of students Otto ii er 28 with the help of an interpreter. Jacob0 began by asking for a few minutes of silence for the late Herbert Anaya

who had been Jacobo’s successor in CDHES. The night of Jacobo’s talk was, by coincidence, on the one year anniversary of Her-

bert’s death. The fourth member of the Human Bights Commission in El Salvador to be killed since 1980, Herbert was gunned down in front of his two young chil ren.

T If roughout his speech, Jacob0 stressed the importance of the Central American countries’ need to find a solution to their problems,

El Salvador felt an explosion of this popular- movement in 1979 after a campaign of repression by the military during 1978 and ‘79. Political crimes and “disappearances” drive Salvadorans to violence. Conflict continues in El Salvador and other Central American countries, according to Jacobo, because of the United States interventionist methods. “America is for the Americans and Central

Central Americans, on their own, have attempted solutions to their problems, but their efforts are continually squashed by the U.S. government and their agents. In 1883 the external affairs ministers of Latin America set up Contadora. They proposed to stop all military eupport and set up a dialogue between conflicting parties. Contadora wanted self-determination to solve their own problems and no intervention from other countries since Conjadora felt they had promoteqviolence. As’ anticipated, the U.S. opposed Contadora. The day Contadora’s proposal was to be signed by the

Latin American countries the U.S. invaded Grenada Since then, other proposals have been made by leaders of Latin American countries and have likewise been deterred by the US, Based on this evidence, Jacob0 maintains that problems in Central America are not internal. Americans are afraid of losing control of their southern

He urged Amnesty International members to continue their effort for freedom and peace in Central America. Jacob0 explained the voting procedure in El Salvador. The U.S. sends over money for personnel and high tech computer equipment. They send over noted impartial observers. But the. ballots are numbered according to each p&son’s I.D. number

and can be easily traced. The observers, who report back to the world that the election has been held fairly, only observe in the capital city and do not see the rural polls. After election day the results take about eight days to be announced. “All this computer equipment and it takes eight days!” he said laughing, “Before the expensive technology it took only two or three days. Who knows, next year maybe ten da s to decide what the result wil Y be.” Jacob0 said the reason for the delay was, “noiv the fraud lasts longer because the levels of negotiations -_ are higher.”

Forty people participated in a non-violent blockade of the External Affairs building in Ottawa on the morning of November 10 to _protest Canada’s role in war in Central Amerm ica. Members and supporters of the Alliance for Non-Violent Action [ANVA) stopped traffic and cut access to the building for an hour as they attempted to end business as usual, A year has passed since the Mulroney government renewed aid to Guatemala where re res-

str,ators placed dollar bills, also smeared with paint, around the dolls and crosses and chanted “resimt

the poor”

as they sat down on Sussex Drive, eventually blocking six lanes of traffic. Leaflets, distributed ‘to External Affairs workers as they approached the building’s entrance, urged the bureaucrats to “think about what these abstract worde, arms sale .. and for-

eign aid, these paper concepts with which External Affairs works, mean in practice.” “They mean thousands on thousands of civilians - men, women and children - tortured, mutilated and murdered by tbe government of El Salvador... They mean 40,ooO disappeared fn Guatsmah; innocent p8ople gunned down from helicopters with Canadian-made engines. These words mean rape and torture and death for peasants and nuns and little children’” Amnesty International, in its. 1988 report, states that “the Salvadoread death squads are simply used to shield the government from accountability for the torture, disappearances and extra-judicial executions committed in their name.”

By 8:25 a.m., only 15 minutes after the blockade had begun,’ Ottawa Police had rerouted traffic away from Sussex Drive so that no vtihicles could approach the building. This goal achieved, the protesters decided to shut the office down: the police, standing near the road, turned back and ran to the building where the demonstrators soon arrived to occupy the steps leading to the lobb , Kneeling wit 1 arms linked, the rotesters chanted “your pay is ii lood money.” As some civil servants attempted to climb over the human chaim” a few were pulled ovir by police officera standing between ‘the demonstrators and the entrance. After 15 minutes, Ottawa Police

moved in to arrest 25 people and dragged -them off to waiting vans, The peace activists were charged with mischief and released from jail later that afternoon.

David Cooke, acting as Governor General, deviated from the prepared Throne Speech to say he was’pleased to see that the model parliament, a political exercise of students, was again being held; suggested the members of the house be elected in campuswide elections. The Governor General left and the model parliament continued. The Speaker for the day was confirmed and escorted to his place by the three party leaders. All three party leaders responded to the Throne Speech, and after a brief meeting of party and house leaders, the first government headed into the rigors

Small business doesn’t fear.free trade by Ralph Zuljan Imprint etaff “Much of the opposition to the current free trade agreement stems from the fear of the unknown” according to Cathrine Swift of the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (C.F.I.B.J. However, small businessea the C.F.I.B. surveyed, support the deal by a ratio of 8 to 1. It seems Canadian companies do not fear free trade. Swift was speaking to University of Waterloo students at a free trade discussion sponsored by the Political Science Students Association last Tuesday. Swift edphasized that the international business environment is changing rapidly already and “change is becoming a continuous process.” As a result, jobs as well as businesses are becoming impermanent in nature. Swift’s speech focused on the increasing importance of new small businesses in job creation. In Canada, “Companies with less than 20 employees are responsible for about 80 percent of total net job creation,” said Swift. The majority of new jobs are currently coming from companies that are less than five years old. “Half of the jobs that will be

Swift says these statistics verify that “Canada is already a very dynamic participant - in the chanies that are taking place in economies around the world.” “Business generally prefers to operate in an environment in which market circumstances are the major determinant of economic decision-making, Canada has an unfortunate record of propping up inefficient companies,” Swift said. “We have heard many positive comments from our members about the trade agreement .‘+ Many of the businesses represented by the C.F.I.B. stand to gain better access to the U.S. market because of the agreement, and the dispute settlement procedures in -the agreement represent a “major improvement++ over current practices+ said Swift.

Third World suffers most.

AIDS campaigns by Sherwood I&print staff

Hinre

For every case of AIDS there are at least 100 carriers of the infection who have not yet developed the disease. If the conservative figures of the World Health Organization (WHO) are accepted, there are 100,000 confirmed AID&cases and ten million people carrying the disease around the world today. The latest findings by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences conclude that 25 to 50 per cent of those infected will die within five years; the figure nears 100 per cent over a ten to fifteen year period. It does not take a math genius to realize the implications of these findings. Today’s ten million carriers will be dead or dying by the year 2000. One must also remember that these are conservative estimates. Research in Africa suggests that ten percent of the 100 million inhabitants of central ’ Africa are now Human Immunodeficiency Virus {HIV) carriers. This means there are ten million infected people in central Africa alone. In Lusaka, Zambia, 33 per cent of men aged thirty to thirty-five are infected, In Zaire, eight per cent of pregnant women attending pre-natal clinics are infected. Eighteen percent of all blood donated in .Kigali, Rwanda tested positive for the AIDS virus. These figures represent only those who are presently infected, WHO @mates a global total of300 niillfonpeople will be infected within the next five to ten years. The economic implications for Africa’s future are immense, Because AIDS in the Third World is a predominantly sexually-transmitted disease, those between the ages of fifteen and fifty are the most susceptible. In a COhtinent where producers are predominantly peasant farmers and where automation or mechanization is virtually non-existent, it is the sheermuscle power of this age group that sustains the population. In these African nations, AIDS is transmitted in other ways which directly reflect their economic limitations. African hospitals and rural health clinics cannot afford to use disposable needles and syringes. Due to a consistent shortage of funding, they are forced tq re-use potentially infected needles. Screening of blood is.also ex- ensive. The cost of screening & lood can be one quarter of the cost of running a blood bank. Accordingly, mass screening programs do not exist. What Africa needs is a quick, simple andcheap blood test for diagnosing ‘HIV infection. Yet despite the-fact that first world governments are spending increasingly large amounts of money to screen, educate and research the epidemic, only token assistance is going to help Africa. At the beginning of 1087, WHO had an AIDS budget of only $580,000 U.S. In the United States, $2,000 million is being. mobilized to fight the virus. There are an estimated twenty to forty different drugs being tested for the treatment of AIDS. This is only an approximation as pharmaceutical and bio-technology companies are very secretive in discussing their research. The potential profit wind-fall from the discovery of a successful treatment is staggering. Fifty companies are cur’rently

working on AIDS testing kits, anti-AIDS drugs and vaccines in pursuit of what by 1985 could be a billion (a) dollar business. Unfortunately, even if a cure is found, it will have little benefit for most living in Africa. As Arthur Gottlieb, president of the pharmaceutical company Imreg

not su-fficient

Inc., points out, an treatment for AIDS will likely 51e of the nature similar to insulin or irnti-hypertensive drugs - the type needed to sustain life. If this prediction proves true, there will be two immediate ramifications for the Third World.

First, the drug will be expensive. Second+ very few people would be able to participate in a treatment program where a daily administration is required. A cure for AIDS, if indeed one follows this scenario, will only benefit those of the first world. The truth remains however,

that at the present time there is no cure for AIDS, nor a realistic hope of one. For all inhabitants of the Third World, AIDS will be just a further source of suffering, AIDS will be another in a long line of indicators reflecting the social-economic realities of current global inequalities.

Beginning its second year of operation+ UCF - a co-operative venture between Laurentian ’ University in Sudbury and Toronto-based Blyth and Company - offers a unique and rewarding experience to Canadian university students. A year at UCF provides students with a chance to earn Canadian university credits in the fields of humanities and social sciences while improving their skills in French and English: it also provides an unrivalled opportunity to experience Europe and meet students from all parts of Canada. In order to satisfy admission requirements, students must have completed a minimum of one full year of study at a Canadian university and be in good standin at their home universities, or tll ey must have a di loma d’etudes collegiales in Que ! ec or an International Baccalaureate. The fee of $7,995 includes tuition, shared accommodation in IJCF residences, airfare from Toronto/Montreal to Nice with an open return, use of campus - includLhg swimming facilities pool ‘and tennis courts - and four local excursions. The tuition for UCF is the same as for Laurentian University’s programs in Canada and Canadian students are eligible for provincial government student loans. An integral part of the Ontario university system, UCF has attracted top-calibre faculty members from universities across Canada and offers students an educational experience

of the highest quality. The curriculum is developed-by Laurentian University in accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities. The location of the campus on a magnificent 42-acre Mont Leuze estate in Ville-franchesur-Mer allows students to take advantage of the cultural attractions of nearby Nice. Numerous places of historical and artistic attraction in France, Italy, and Monaco are also within easy reach. A number of trips are organized to give students the opportunity to further explore Europe during breaks in the ac;8demic year. Classes are scheduled Monday through Thursday to allow long weekends for special trips. In addition+ UCF offers a special six-week spring session from the beginning of May until mid-June. This session includes an intensive university-level French immersion program and a limited number of other courses. The UCF provides students with an affordable, stimulating and broadening experience. An

If it were, such unusual characteristics as sainthood, superior intellect, or voluntary celibacy would be condemned. With the advent and growth of Christianity, this completely changed right? Wrong! With few exceptions, gay sexuality is notably absent from early church literature. When we do find negative commerits, its an expression of discomfort with sexuality in general. Early critics, such as Augustine, Jepome and Origen, all believed eroticism outside of pro- . creation is sinful. People become intolerant of gay sexuality at the same moment they become intolerant of any minority in their midst. This occurs when a culture be-

In the Bank of Nova Scotiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent publication The Global Economic Outlook, the highs and lows of economic development over the past four years, within Canada and globally, act as a backdrop for a 1989 forecast. Globally, Japan will continue to be the leading performer among G7 countries, due mostly to the strengthening of its own domestic demand coupled with the successful inroads it has made in the Asian and European markets. The strong surge toward a more integrated European market is expected to increase capital spending. Tighter monetary policy will be used to curtail the ever-rising rate of inflation; subsequently, the interest rate will rise to combat the increase in inflation. However the predicted upward movement in the interest rate will ,-act. negatively upon both the indebted North American and Less Developed countries economies. Current account and fiscal deficits added onto the increasing foreign debt is likely to make the North American economy SUBceptible to any shift in international investor confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stimulative monetary and fiscal policies overseas have bolstered dotiestic demand and eased the transition from exportled growth,â&#x20AC;? the Outlook states. With the increase in international competitiveness and high overseas demand, non-oil based commodity prices will raise export earnings. Canadian real output growth is expected to be around 2.5 per cent in 1989 due to increaaed interest rates, slow employment gains, reduced consumer spending and a growing debt. However, the resource sector and business investment will give Canada a four per cent economic growth. Higher wages and lower marginal taxes will have an offsetting effect upon the slow employment growth, even though household credit demand will slow a strong housing market and firm prices will underpin mortgage demand.

Comedians from Yuk Yuk’s performed before an enthusiastic, standing room only crowd at Fed Hall last Tuesday. The three performers - two male, one female - were on stage for over two hours. MC Roger Chandler started things off with his crude, locker-rdom style humour: “My roommate’s a real lazy guy. He’d rather have jock’s itch than athlete’s foot. That way, he doesn’t have to reach so far to stiratch,” The emcee’s material also included family jokes. “My grandfather worked on the Titanic. When they sent him for ice, he didn’t fuck around!” This brand of humour may be considered coarse by some, but got pie-nty of laughs. Lisa Gai-Tremblay’s material centred on the “it’s tough being a woman” theme. She lamented about having a tattoo on her chest saying, “In case of sex, THIS SIDE UP.” Another” favourite topic was the singles’bar scene: “Nobody wants a mutt,.. till about ten to one,” GaiTrembla ‘s list of “what we women B 0 for ou men” got some knowing laug K ter from the fe-

male portion of the audience, especially her comments about trying on bathing suits with underwear still on underneath, and “one-size fits all” pantyhose. The first two acts were an appropriate lead-in for the final act. This particular comic displayed a superior talent and extremely quick wit by not appearing to ‘have any material at all, but just capitalizing on audience participation. But despite his comment that “I don’t really have an act... I just look for the assholes in the audience...” He controlled the audience by sticking to some common themes. One thread he kept picking up was reminiscing about “when I a kid...” He was also quick to work the faculty rivalries on this campus into his material, using the audience’s prompting to call Kin “gym” and bringing the house down with his stream of jokes about Mathies studying addition, Engineers also received their fair share of abuse. The comedians all finished their acts by thanking the students and wishing them good luck on final exams. Hearing the comedians’ jokes around campus for the next few days indicated the success of the evening.

A friend of mine aaid “He Greg, there’s this great ban 8” called D.H.1, playing their second ever gig at the Riv tonight.” “Never heard of ‘em,” I said. “What does D.H.I. stand for, anyway?” “Death and Horror Inc.,” my friend said. “Oh, GOODY,” I re“another really bad sponded, pseudo-goth band,., but, what the hell, it should be good for a laugh.” Well, I was quite mistaken. The opening act, Mourning Sickness, did suck, but D.H.I. put on a great show, complete with distorted slides, old newsreels, and the original Hunch back of Notre ’ Dame projected on the walls and on a screen behind the band. The music hovered somewhere between Skinny Puppy and Trisomie 21; noise with melody. And, hey, I liked it so much, I bought the cassette right after the show! That cassette, Need and Ability, is the band’s well reduced debut effort. The pat I: aging is nice; a fold-out cover with lots of murk photos and skulls, much like t 3: e aforementioned Puppy.

A Tallahassee Senator was one of many government officials attending the recital, Kenneth felt like a traitor to Canada, and as such, made some minor changes, 39 to be exact, to Lincoln’s famous speech. On his way up to the podium, he stepped into the Civil War veteran’s epitoon (which ha pened to be his shoe-size) and R e couldn’t get it off. Heroically, he decided to wear the “goddamn confederate’s spitoon” and give his speech an way. In all the excitement he r orgot parts of the address and improvised his own. Everyone cheered because they didn’t notice. Following his reading, Mitchell entertained some questions from the audience. When asked about how he dealt with death, he said his father died when he was six, an element that comes through in much of his writing. In Who Has Seen The Wind, he realized he was mortal. Mitchell said his creative partners, his readers have changed over the years. They have become older, and mortality becomes more vital and apparent. Of himself, he said he has become more foulmouthed in his novels than he used to be, mostly because his audience is more tolerant today. One man in the audience ventured to ask Mitchell to express his opinion on free trade. Mitchell promptly responded with “you bastard! I’m on a book tour - four times out of .five I’ve been

( No strings attached family fun 1

by Ronate Sander-Regier Imprint staff

Who says puppet shows are for kids? If I ever made such a statement, I take it all back after seeing the puppet show to top all puppet shows: J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Ringr, It was presented by the Theatre Sans >Fil at the Centre in the Square Thursday November 8, and played to as full a house as I’ve ever seen at the Centre. There were young and not-soyoung in the audience: a reflection of the wide appeal of Tolkien’s tales. And judging from the applause, very few, if any, were disappointed by the show. The plot moved quickly through the enough - roaring whole Lord of the Rin trilogy in 2 f/2 hours - to ho f d the attention of- even the youngest members of the audience. The characters, costumes, special ef-

fects and music were spell-binding, to say the least. Yes, the Theatre-Sans Fil wove some pretty sophisticated and high-tech magic that evening. The sound track was excellent. Crystal clear, the music and the voices of the character8 engulfed the entire theatre. The electronic score - appropriately eerie and natural,aad and joyful - suited each scene of the story. The most impressive characters were Candalf and Strider (also known as Aragon). The wizard Gandalf - cloaked, hooded and bearded: authoritative, gentle and grumpy -came across as infinitely wise and worthy of respect. The mysterious stranger Strider - tall, lean and swathed in cloth; sad, noble and courageous - was equally worthy of res ect. They were both beautiful c R aracters. Saruman, the evil “fallen wizard,” and his servant Wormtongue, also .deserve mention.

They made quite the pair. Saruman was everything an evil master should be - vain, cruel and abusive - while Wormtongue! well, he (she? it?] was priceless, beyond words. You will just have to go and see for yourselves some day. I couldn’t write about The Lord of the Rings without mentioning the various creatures night riders, arcs, ents, balrogs, riders of death - all fascinating and some humorous. And the effects!. Fireworks, black light, fluorescent swords and bats, and even what looked to me like Some sort of laser - all contributed to the magnetism of the show. The set was simple, but not uncomplicated. The nicest effect was a map which rolled down from above as a backdrop, and which was pulled by a few strings to constitute the doors of Maria for the next scene - brilliant! Two towers with drawbridges served as Saruman’s hang-out, the gates to Minas Tirith, and the access to Mount Doom.

Every so often my-eyes would focus on the dark-clothed, human figures behind the giant puppets - necessary for manipulation, I realize - and they would distract me a little from the story. And once, during a black-out between ac8nes, I8aw a tree run 6ff the stage. But that sort of thing happens in Tolkien’s world, doesn’t it? The show was, on the whole, convincing and entertaining. The Theatre Sans Fil puppeteers are td be commended for a captivating, and s ectacular erformance, They K ad better if ave it ,down pat; thefve been doing The Lord of the Ringr since 1985.

With it they won the Grand Prize of the XVII Internam tional Puppetry Festival in Zagreb (1884) the first competitive festival the Theatre Sane Fil had ever entered.

It seemed he could do no wrong. Every time Tom Schneider of the Waterloo Warriors touched the ball at last weekend’s Naismith basketball Classic, it ended up in the hoop. Like King Midas, everything he touched turned to gold. How’s this for a weekend on the court? Waterloo’s veteran guard scored an incredible 91 points in three games, shooting 71 per cent from the floor, 22-of27 from the foul stripe and i-of13 on three-point bombs. Not bad, eh? Unfortunately’ ihe Warriors could have used two or three Schneiders, as they finished gr;y; their annual tourney at

The Warriors dropped the third place game to the U of T Varsity Blues on Sunday afternoon, 82-71. The weekend left-t he Warriors’ preseason record at 6-3 as they head to Rochester for a fourteam tournament this weekend at St. John’s Fisher college. “We’ve got some .gigantic flaws in our game, but the only teams that are beating us are probable division winners,” said McCrae, noting that his Warriors have lost to only Acadi$, U of T and the Regina Cougars, all potential top 16 teams. Friday’s opening round match with the Gee Gees should have . been like a Mike Tyson fight -it wasn’t ‘if the Warriors would pound Ottawa, but ‘when.’ It didn’t happen. “It was a very unsatisfactory performance,” commented McCrae. “Especially when you’re trying to get ready for three days of solid basketball.” As almost 4;660 rowdy fans looked on in delight, the Warriors’ as expected, almost blew the Gee Gees back to Parliament Hill. The Warriors took a 23-9 lead by just past the midway mark of the first half. Ottawa, with nine rookies in its line-up, looked like a group of scared cats. The Gee Gees threw balls away, went over four minutes without a basket, and resorted to * tackling Schneider on defence.

UW led, 36-27 at the half. Buoyed by the Schneider shooting clinic, the Warriors -. burst ahead by as many as 17 in the second half. Certainly, they were in the driver’s seat, right? Wrong. As Schneider sat with four fouls, the Gee Gees went on a 16-l run, paced by Shane, who left shoe treads on Waterloo’s big men, With five minutes remaining, :Waterloo clung to a 62-W. lead, _ Some nifty teammwork by Schneider and Troyak triggered the Warriora to a 69-57 lead, which they held until the last minute. That’s when the unfat homable almost occurred. In the last 30 seconds, burly Gee Gee John Walsh nailed two quick three-pointers, and Mark Gallagher Quickly added another. Dazed and confused, the UW lead. was mfldenly slashed to 69-66 - shades of the Boston Red Sox in the 1986 World Series.. Rookie Jason Poag hit two free throws to ice it, “It wasn’t the danger of the 105s that was so annoying,” said McCrae. “But there were five players on the floor whomade no attem t to follow our processes. That Peft a very bad faste about the game. Schneider carried UW with 24 while Pat Telford added 10. The Warriors, out-rebounded 47-35, shot a gloomy 46 per cent from the floor. “I -Was very impressed,” said Oftawa coach John Restivo. “When you come into Waterloo, you expect a to& game. I like my kids, they just wrirnt to play and have fun. Any coach would have liked to coach this bunch tonight.” A crowd of about 3,500 watched the Warriors flirt with an upset, teasing the Axemen right to the final buzzer in Saturday night’s semi-final. “That was the best game we’ve played this season, as a unit and for 40 minutes,” McCrae said. “We gave them more than trouble, they just hung on to win.” Schneider played the game of the weekend, pouring in 39 points including a flawless 12for-12 night from the charit stripe.

The grandstand finish wasn’t enough for the spectators; most sat impassive, as if trying to remember the items on tomorrow’s shopping day list. Shame. Despite the late setback, Powell had things her way earlier in the 2660yard fly in which she decimated the opposition,. finishing 11 ‘seconds to the fore of the rest. Masson, meanwhile,

The Warriors took a brief-4340 lead in the second, but the Axemen began to trample UW inside, pounding the ball in to twin towers, M.V.P, Grant McDonald and Ted Byrne. Acadia’s biggest lead was 53-45 with 8:30 remaining. The tireless Warriors didn’t give up, as Schneider and Troyak nailed some clutch buckets to take the game down the crunch period. UW came within three points, but no closer. Again, Waterloo was stomped under the boards. The Axemen out-rebounded UW, 28-16, led by Byrne’s 23 points and II rebounds. ’ Guard Charles Ike jiani added 12 points while McDonald and Clive Anderson both meshed 11. McCrae felt differently about Acadia’s late game inside i baskets. “We were disappointed with a couple of breaks that could have gone our way. Their big guys pushed the ball at us with violations... If we’d got the ball back we probably would have given it to Tommy.” The Warriors perimeter game clicked, as they shot 54 per cent from the field compared to Acadia’s 53 per cent. “When you come in here, you get hyped,” noted the tourney M.V.P. McDonald. -“There are ~,WQpeople hers and they’re jtist crazy. It's a great trip to come here,” Sunday afternoon’s third place game with the Blues was an anticlimactic affair played before a crowd of under 1,000. Those who did show up, saw Schneider complete his storybook weekend, pumping in 28 points with s-of-6 from threepoint range. Troyak rounded out an impressive tourney, especially defensively, with 14 oints while John Bilawey E icked in 10. Dr. Z, Andy Zienchuk, hoo ed nine points in another so Pid effort.

But before we get to the good news we have to touch on what happened last Wednesday night at Laurier’s pool. Nothing really ositive can be said about a 12-1 Pass to Western, UW wanted the win and deserved it far more, but unfortunately that didn’t happen, It was an intense game, the second quarter was filled with an extensive attack on the Mustang’s net but defensively Waterloo was weak and offensivel the opportunities weren’t acte cr on effectively. One impressive feature of this game was the spectator turnout. I’m not sure if its the vast circulation those articles get, word of mouth, of if it was merely the parents of the ROW swimmers. Regardless it was encouraging and the team did appreciate it, they only wished they could have put on a better performance. * The real story is the Warrior’s performance this weekend at the Cross Over Round Robin II at Toronto Saturday and Sunday. If you missed it, you missed Waterloo playing their hardest and their best. Yes sports fans there was more than just the Naismith happening this weekend.

Waterloo’s first game had them facing the Carleton Ravens whom they had narrowly beaten in previous encounters. At the end of a scoreless first quarter there, was serious wind sucking action on the parts of both teams. However, the second quarter proved Waterloo’s superior atamina watching the expertise of veteran players Mik$+ Cash and Jeff Slater scoring two goals a piece assisted by Norbert MoInar and Keith Beckley each with one. The rest of the game saw the Warriors surf comfortably to a substantial 9-3 victory, This game gave the team the ‘mspiration t-0 continue on and the realization that they were there to prove a point.

Listless but still unshippable

The

The Waterloo Warriors volleyball team will have to take a good look at themselves after a rather flat performance against McMaster last Tuesda , Even though the match was ta 1 en 8-1, the Warriors showed up to the PAC’s main gym with an obvious lack of enthusiasm. In the words of one knowledgeable volleyball fan, “they were listless.” Nevertheless, it is a testimony to the skill of the individual players that the games were in fact blowouts. Or rather, they were blowouts when Waterloo decided they wsre actually in a volleyball game. The first two games went 15-3, 15-l. All six of ahe pine-dwellers came in for the third game. The played until match was even1 the Warriors too E a 33-8 lead. Then, it slipped away. Six straight points by McMaster and all of a sudden it. -was 14-13. the Marauders Eventually, sealed the victory on an exciting stuff block, 17-15. “We were in control and we let it get away. There is no way thit game should have been lost,” said a disappointed Rob Atkinson. The Warriors coach demands the utmost in effort from all his players’, including the little used bench. “I should have got the starters up and moving when it was 1% 18 in the third game. Hindsight is always best. However, these guys needed the playing time,” continued Atkinson. ’ As it was; the starters came out cold in Game Four. It took “half-a-game” to get on track, when the Warriors got rolling

and ran off seven straight points to win 15-8, Waterloo’s record is now 4-0, good for first place in the OUAA’s West Di.vision. Before the match, the Warriors were concerned about McMaster’s outstanding power hitter, Peter Preocanin. If you are a hask&ball fan, you will recognize the name, for this is 6%” Mike Preocanin’s “little” brother. Atkinson noted, “If we can read the set, we will try and throw up a triple block:’ Preocanin wa8 effectively neutralized in the first two games, in the two blowouts The Smith brothers had outstanding hitting games. Steve Smith, playing the power position, consistently went through, over, and around a triple block. Extra incentive for Smith was a girlfriend and her parents watching in the crowd. His brother Scott was the pI‘ayer of the game. Excellent passing, good coverage on de-a fence, and ai impressive kill percentage earned the honours. KiIIing at 100 per cent in the second game, he was unstoppable. Setter Tony Martins as well as Steve Smith also exhibited great poise with net play in close. Team passing was not on, often long, which-presented opportunities for McMaster to drive the ball in to the Warrior floor. It was only these players’ ability to effectively redirect the volleyball on the way over that kept Mac off the scoreboard. Unfortunately, two of the Warrior starters had an off day. Brian Damman and Lech Bekesza, usually consistent, must. forget this match andgo ontothe next with the determination 2 common to both. A at&at team

will, win only five per cent of their matches when every player puts on a great performance in the same game. Ninety-five per cent will come when the. team plays poorly. An obvious asset, the Warrior’s ability to hit from anywhere will have to be utilized to win the big game. When Waterloo’s blocking and team defence is working, they ‘come right back at the opposition with a variety of quick attacks to any hitter in the frontcourt. McMaster was off balance, on their heels, confused, and frustrated. , Ian Heynen at setter provides a little extra in the blocking depirtment; he is 6’4”. Taking over from Tony Martins in the third game, he had Dave Plouffe, Jim McKinnon, Fred Koops, Dave Shum, and Mike Fullerton to go to. Not bad corn any. . They showed tK ey can play the game as well as anyone when their concentration didn’t leave the PAC building. Leads of 4-2, g-5, and 13-8 were erased when intensity levels dropped. The skill was there, the proper mental set wasn’t, Pfouffe led the side with his blocking and hitting being as intimidating as any player’s on the starting six. Waterloo is at home again on Tuesday, November 22, with Guelph visiting the PAC at 8:00 p.m. It will be a busy week, they also e play on the following Thursday in Windsor. In addition, the first big test of the year will take place on Friday and Saturday, November 25-26, at the Guelph Invitational, Top calibre teams such&s Ball State and Ohio State-will be, participating in this exciting tournament,
