Our new-man .in Ottawa by Fhr Imprint

Macqueen staff

Past VPOF and current Canada Day chairperson Shane Carmichael is jumping from student to federal politics. As of Monday, May 8, you can get a hold of him in Waterloo MP Walter McLean’s Ottawa office. As McLean’s executive assistant, Carmichael will be working closely with our Federal rep, planning his agenda and making sure McLean addresses local issues while in Ottawa. “I’ll be continuing on in my commitment to this community, just in a broader perspective now... I’ll be serving all community members, not just students,” Carmichael said. McLean approached him about the job after his former assistant left, and Carmichael felt “this type of job to me is something you shouldn’t turn down. We’ve discussed a two-year commitment, and we’ll see how it goes from there. It certainly opens up a lot of doors for me.” Carmichael also sees it as a way to continue his community service in KW. *With Canada Day less than two months awayi there is some concern about the chairperson “I’m not really leaving town, leaving Canada Day... over the next little while I’ll be doing a fair bit of travelling back and forth? Carmichael plans to be back in Waterloo every two weeks before the big day. “This break (between Carmichael and the Canada Day Council) was going to happen at some point in time, and to me, it’s not really that big of a break--the chairperson shouldn’t be relied on to carry the whole load of the

event, and to be perfectly honest, that’s what happened... we have some strong people in the steering committee positions that know their stuff, and will take it OIL”

The council is also looking for a full-time coordinator, who will be paid out of a government grant and council funds. This person could handle many of the duties the chairperson has handled to date. Over the past five years, KW Canada Day has grown from a small celebration to KW’s largest one day event. Last year, around 8,000 people visited the campus during the day, 5,000 saw the parade, and 50,000 watched the huge evening fireworks show. Parade committee advisor Marlene Miles and Dean of Students Ernie Lucy agreed the Canada Day Council has a solid structure in place. Both have been very involved in the celebrations here at Waterloo. “I think it’s fairly critical that we get someone (to replace Carmichael) that’s willing to make a fairly major time commitment” to Canada Day, as Carmichael has, Lucy said. “He certainly has been committed to Canada Day and the good will it promotes in the community,” Miles said, adding it would be hard to find someone as dedicated to the day as he has been over the past four years. Carmichael is confident in his ability to work with this year’s Canada Day Council at a distance. He says he will just be “a phone call away” for organizers that need him. McLean himself has a “strong interest” in the celebrations, Carmichael says, as he initiated. national Canada Day during his . term as Secretary of State. He

brated the cooperation of the two universities, Oxford Press’s co-editors for the dictionary, Edmund Byner and John Simpson, and UW President Douglas Wright spoke in front of close to one hundred guests. Byner summarized the intent of the project as “moving drudgery from man to computer,” and Simpson mentioned proudly that the dictionary now contains references to “everything from the classics to the ephemeral literature of the streets.” He gave the origins of the term “animal rights” as an example, This expression was first thought to have been coined in the late 196Os, but research for the second edition revealed it dated back to an obscure 1860s journal. Both British professors spoke appreciatively of Canada and their relationship with UW. Simpson jokingly called Canada “a home away from home,” as it is on the North American continent, but does not hold quite the culture shock of the United States for him. Dr. Wright first thanked Tompa and the rest of his group,

Wright lauded the project as a landmark for computing in the humanities. ‘“The compufer’s effect on language may be more significant than that upon numbers and graphics.” Back in 1984, Wright jumped at the chance to cooperate with the oldest university in the Eng‘lish speaking world on a new version of the definitive dictionary of the English language. “I view the computer,” Wright said later, “as a tool for everyone, not to be limited. to math and engineering ,” Informal demonstrations of the on-line OED occupied much of the receplion, with the most overheard phrase being “I’ve always

Conestoga student edits Fedbook by Fleur Imprint

stuff

After interviewing around ten Waterloo students, the Federation executive hired a Conestoga College student as this year’s Fed handbook editor. The handbook, in its fourth year, has previously been produced solely by Waterloo students. Hiring the handbook editor is one of the first jobs of the new Federation executive. President Dave Readman and Vice-Presidents Tim Collins (operations and finance) and Fran Wdowczyk [university affairs) held interviews before the winter term exams, but Readman said they did not talk to anyone they felt could do the job. They held additional interviews after exams were over, and hired Martin Cinzar, a second year student in graphic design and advertising at Conestoga College. “Our first priority was to hire somebody from Waterloo, but we felt Martin was much better than the other candidates, (and therefore) better for the Fed book,” Readman said Cinzar impressed them with his knowledge of sales and design.

~~~~~~~i~e~~~d’~~l~~e~~ come from the Turnkey coffee. But the CC has not bien able to rely on that income. Says Woodruff: “The bottom line is economits... we’ve been absorbing losses from the coffee for over two years. Students are usually satisfied when it’s explained to them that the money goes back to them in the form of CC services.” She attributes the losses to rising prices of coffee and supplies; bio-degradable cups [twice the price of Styrofoam ones); increased use of the larger-capacity mugs; and abuse of the old honour system by a minority of patrons. Last fall, the honour system was replaced by “behind-thecounter” coffee sales to protect CC patrons, although Woodruff says she is confident of integrity of the majority of CC regulars. Some students have complained that paper cups lead to cold coffee and burnt fingers, but in the end it is a trade-off, says Woodruff. “Students seemed to have wanted the bio-degradable ones.” She is considering the use of a Styrofoam cup that does not release fluorocarbons into the environme& but could not say whether such a move would change coffee prices.

They also hired Waterloo English graduate student Steve McCutcheon to act as assistant editor. Cinzar later told Imprint that he has no sales experience, but has good presentation skills and is well versed in design and layout. He expressed no reservations about putting the book out in time, despite his relatively late start.“When the thing is due, it will be done.” He is currently talking to people about what they would like to see in the 1989-90 handbook. “I don’t believe I have all the good ideas (though) I do have different ones.” Cinzar says his graphic courses have taught him to be very critical of publications, and he wants completely re-design the book. He is looking at including more maps, not only of the campus+ but also a fold-out map of KW if possible, and said “the quality of the photos could go up about 100 per cent.” Cinzar hopes to produce a book students, especially those riew to Waterloo, will rely on much more, “It’s a handbook, and it should be like the Scout handbook...a kind of Bible.”

Waterloo students hope she will be their ticket to international acclaim in the field of solar car racing. Her name is Midnight Sun, and although she remains mostly on the drawing board, she will be a lean, mean, solar-racing machine: the product of the brainpower of a cross-disciplinary team of UW students, profs and outside consultants. They are hoping she will be the best that $50-100,000 can buy. Midnight Sun will be one of only two Canadian cars raced by teams selected by General Motors for next summer’s “Solarayce USA”. Solar celIs will start soaking up the rays at Disney World, Florida on July 8, 1990; the event will wind up nine days later at- where else-the General Motors plant in Detroit, Michigan, Teams received start-up funds of $5,000 (US) from GM and $2,000 (US] from the U.S. Department of Energy. They are expected to raise the remaining funds through corporate kponsorships. Thirty-one cars will race the 1800-mile distance, fuelled only by the sun’s power and two-hour battery-charging periods at the start and finish of each racing day.

competitive element, but there’s also a sense of working together to solve an excellent engineering design problem.” Brunger notes GM has structured the race to ensure a feeling of unity as well. According to the race rules,, “All cars will gather at a common stopping point each night... the day-end stops along the route will provide gathering points for all the participating teams.” The race winner will be the car with the lowest elapsed d time in completing the entire course. The highest speed achieved by a solar car to date is 80 miles an hour, a record set in November 1987. The distinction belongs to GM’s “Sunraycer.” Built at a cost of over $6 million, the Sunraycer reached average speeds of about 42 miles per hour at The World Solar Challenge in Australia. If the 1JW team wins next summer’s race, they will compete in 1990’s World Solar Challenge. Next summer will not be the first time IJW students have entered vehic:les in races. UW won Canada’s first solar car race last spring using a photo-voltaic (PV) vehicle, powered by relatively inexpensive solar cells similar to those used in calculators. UW engineers have also won national and international prizes for fuel-efficiency with student-built cars. “In England, we achieved the third-highest miles per gallon in the world,” says Brunger. “We’re pretty goocl at pushing a vehicle along using a very small amount of power,” he grins. He was not referring to the engineers’ annual bus push.

On-campus recycling slowed down with the removal of the tin and newspaper recycling bins in the Campus Centre and South Campus Hall late last November. Waterloo Public Interest Research Group, who initiated this campus recycling project, was informed by UW’s plaht Operations Laidlaw was investigating campus recycling. Laidlaw holds the recychng contract for the university. WPIRG then cancelled their agreement with McLellan Disposal Services, who picked up the tin and newspapers. Recycling has been on hold ever since. UW’s computer facilities officials discovered a UW computer was used to access the files of an American defence contractor. Someone outside the university community obtained the password to a guest account, and from there broke into Internet, a large computer network. From there, the intruder accessed Milnet, a military network, and finally the files of Mitre Ctirp. The person altered some of Mitre’s files, but no classified information was stored on the system.

“Fairness shall be the overriding consideration in dealing with student appeals.” This statement introduces the new academic appeal policy soon to be in place at UW. The university Senate, in its April 17 meeting, received and approved the first reading of a report called Student Appeal Policy and Procedures. This document came out of the Academic Appeal Committee’s review of existing appeal . avenues in the faculties, and policies of other Canadian universities. Right now, appeal procedures vary from one faculty to another: this new policy is meant to standardize the rules and meet with “standards of natural justice” as defined by Ontario’s Statutory Powers Procedure Act. These standards require that all parties be heard, and no one be the judge over his or her own decisions. The policy also creates a University Committee

on Student Appeals (USCA) to be the “final adjudicator” of all student appeals. The policy separates student grievances into two types. Type one appeals are concerned with academic judgment, such as the particular mark given to an essay. Such grievances can only normally be appealed to the faculty committee level, unless the student can convince the UCSA chairperson there is “new substantive evidence or denial of natural justice.” Type two appeals involve all other grievances, including matters of bias or discrimination, procedural errors, or denial of natural justice. These cases can be appealed past the faculty level to the UCSA. The committee’s report notes that the majority of cases neirer reach the formal appeal stage anyway, making pre-appeal measures a priority. It sets out procedures for precursors to

appeals, such as formal inquiries and re-reads. The report also recommends the appeals policy have jurisdiction over non-academic matters in areas like ethics, village residences, library fines, and traffic and parking offences. None of these areas presently enjoy formal procedures that ensure fairness. The committee even suggests grievances concerning fees be dealt with by the UCSA instead of the Board of Governors, as they are now. It argues that the present system is “cumbersome” and that the UCSA “will likely have the experience in dealing with appeals which the Board will lack .” The committee stresses the importance of student involvement in the process, as it recommends that “each tribunal hearing academic offence or breach of student discipline charges include a student member.”

COMMENT

COMMENT

Come see your name in print This spring, I made my way from the assistant editor’s chair to that of the editor’s, officially I assumed power April 1, but in reality the shift came about gradually, my mentor fading out much as the snow dissipated from the streets of Waterloo. One day I found it was all gone, and so was he. As people found out about my new duties, they offered suggestions and criticisms, Many seemed surprised that the editor’s job was a full-time one. Over and over again I found myself explaining how Imprint is run. What I’m working my way toward here is another explanation of Imprint’s structure. The full-time staff consists of an advertising manager, who sells and produces the ads, a business manager, who handles the financial end of the newspaper, a production manager, who does typesetting and layout, and myself. But four people do not produce what you see lying in doorways across campus and around town every Friday we publish. Imprint is really run by its volunteers. Lately we have come under fire for sexism in the Arts section, running strip ads, cancelling Eric Kuelker’s One Christian Perspective column, missing coverage on some campus events, and dwelling on our own interests more than those of the student body. Anyone who has attended an Imprint staff meeting knows that these kinds of things come up around the table, and we make an effort to share them with our readergin editorials and comment pieces. As editor, I am listening to people’s concerns, and am thinking about how we can address them. But it cannot all come from me. I have,plenty of my own ideas, but I am responsible to the volunteer staff, and to members of Imprint Publications Incorporated-a member being any student that has paid their $3. per term Imprint incidental fee. That is, you! I can try and represent your interests as much as possible, but you can surely represent them better. Our main reader forum is the letters to the editor pages. This is a standard newspaper feature. However, unlike big dailies, and even little weeklies, we offer our readers something more: the chance to become our writers. Feel free to come down to CC140,guzzle coffee, hack away at the computers, and spout your views at the weekly Friday staff meetings. You may never have a better chance to see your name in print.

You cannot prove God’s existence To the editor, In his March 13 letter “Reader questions OCP explanation,” Ed Rae indicated that E. Kuelker’s arguments in his cancelled weekly column could lead to belief in God. He also wrote about airtight reasoning and self-evident assumptions in arguments against religion.

At times, E. Kuelker attempted to prove the existence of God using scientific arguments. The English Cardinal J.H. Newman held that no one ever died for the propositions in an argument. Yet, multitudes have been martyrs of Christian faith, which depends on bel’ief without proof, and thus convinced others.

Indeed, .if the existence of God were proven, Christianity would end, for faith would not be required anymore. Airtight reasoning and selfevident assumptions are fading concepts, ,for all human propositions are fallible due to man’s continuous ignorance of the extent and consequences of the unknown. For example, science is argued by the stritit logic of mathematics, Yet, quantum physics is uncertain whether matter consists of particle or wave, and thus proposes a basic fallibility in the philosophy of physical science. In contrast to the Bible, astronomers and geologists calculate immense past eras for heaven and earth, and resolve vast differences in ages using sets of a.ssumptions. Yet, the eras depend ultimately on the uniform ‘rates for natural processes over the calculated past, which is a fallible proposition because nonuniform rates render vastly different eras. Human reasoning always involves uncertain proposition%. Since it is impossible to have faith without doubts, the faithful cannot be certain either. Nevertheless, history indicates that faith is so much stronger than reason. 1. Schroeder Civil Engineer,

Public Interest Research is WPlRG’s goal Are you worried about the deterioration of the ozone layer, the silent destruction of our lakes and forests by acid rain, your rights as a tenant, or the lack of a campus wide recycling program? Have you often thought about doing something about these problems, but could not find a way to get involved? For more than 15 years the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) has provided an outlet for concerned UW students to work actively on a variety of environmental and social issues. Through a blend of research, education and action, students can increase their understanding of the relationships between social and environmental issues while working for change. WPIRG offers UW students valuable information. Unlike the university libraries, WPIRG has concentrated mainly on providing social and environmental resources to the university community. We have an extensive collection of books, files and periodicals on a variety of topics, including acid rain, waste management, water supply/ pollution, native rights, forestry, South Africa, and much more. Books and periodicals can be borrowed for two weeks - vertical files can be used in our office or photocopied. WPIRG provides students with the opportunity to do research that will benefit both the community and the student. UW students can learn the skills of public interest research while preparing research for publications such as Acid Ruin: The Silent Crisis+ The Kitchener-Waterloo Tenant’s Guide. and A Citizens Guide to Excess

Pockoging and Disposable Products, WPIRG staff and volunteers also provide a valuable “consulting” service for students working on essays and assignments on environmental or social issues. WPIRG’s resource centre and reception desk are maintained by student volunteers. Time commitments are flexible, ranging from one to several hours per week. Drop by our office if you would like to contribute to these services. WPIRG workgroups allow students the opportunity to work with other students in selecting and organizing educational events for the campus. In the past, Workgroup members have organized an environmental classics film series, a forum on free trade, a play about apartheid, and speakers on a variety of issues. The Workgroup meetings occur regularly throughout the term, with the first meeting on Tuesday, May 16 at 4:30, in the WPIRG office. The financial and organizational direction of WPIRG is provided by a seven-member student board of directors who are elected early in the fall term. The programming and salary expenses of WPIRG are provided by a $3.00 student fee collected each term. This fee is refundable during the first two weeks of each term. For more information on how to get involved, or on a specific issue, visit our office. We are located in room 123 of the General Services Complex, which is beside the Davis Computer Research Centre. Our hours are -Monday to Thursday, l&00-4:30, and Friday 10:00-2~30,

Political and social repression

Activism in East Germany by Marc Brzustowski Imprint staff Brought to the Campus Centre April 10 by Neither East nor West, an organization of nonaligned peace and human rights workers, Wolfgang Templin told students about the history of peace and human rights activism in East Germany, Templin, speaking through a translator, described the special history of his native country, and its influence on internal dissent since World War Ii in contrast with the other nations of Eastern Europe. East Germany, he explained, did not have the same postwar tradition of protest that Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia shared because of that country’s relatively open border with West Germany until the building of the wall, The groups who formed the opposition to the government in the other Eastern European states were groups who left East Germany in the decade and a half following the war. Little political opposition to the East German government existed in the 1960s and 197os, he said. In return for a rising standard of living and better working conditions, the government placed limits on political freedoms. The peace

Exiled peace activist Wolfgang

movement that developed grew out the collapse of detente in the late 1970’s, and ensuing militarization of society. The army began to assume a greater role in life, bringing military and job training together and filling the kindergartens with war toys, among-other trends. Groups then began to discuss an end to demilitarization and the draft, often in conjunction with the Protestant Church, combining a Christian perspective with pacifism. These groups met with harsh political repression, Templin reported. Some were arrested (Templin himself wtis arrested and forced into temporary exile in West Germany for a two year “study-stay”), while others were repressed educationally and jobwise. The political repression forced upon the East German activists the question of what made their desire for peace a subversive factor; Templin asserted this realization pushed the peace movement to address the issue of human rights. During the same time, environmental and women’s groups began to form, and felt the same repression. They found shelter only in the Protestant Church.

In 1988, Templin began publishing an underground journal, and was a major force in the growth of the independent movement. He sees most of the opportunities for change arising out of Mikhail Gorbach’ev’s reforms in the Soviet Ufiion, and insists that this movement from below must be intimately connected with the everyday life problems and experiences of the East German people. He does not see the future of East Germany to be tied to capitalism, but envisions a independent socialist viewpoint as a political base. He plans to continue exploring the possibility for cooperation between groups throughout Eastern Europe, such as Solidarity in Poland, when he returns to East Germany.

Research using the new computerized OED is wide-ranging in scope. According to Dr. Tampa, one academic is conducting an analysis of baby-talk in the English language, a task reduced to mortal proportions by the speed and versatility of the dictionary. Tampa anticipates researchers will apply the software, programs called GOEDEL and PAT, to a variety of other texts. The system being shown at the reception, he said, had access to on-line versions of the Bible, the Free Trade Agreement, and The Hound of the Bashervilles. Using the software to analyze works of literature can reveal patterns and relationships that would be practically impossible to find manually. One researcher wrote a paper on colour imagery in The Hound of the Baskervilles, using the OED software to show dominant ref.erences to black and white. Qxford’s Professor Byner prei dieted the third edition would be released in another fifteen years. ’ Both UW’s New OED group and Oxford University are looking into the best way to make the computerized OED available to the public. You may soon be able to buy a copy on CD-ROM for your home computer, though the hardware may pose a problem. The system currently runs on SUN workstations, certainly more sophisticated display devices than the average PC clone.

by Peter Brown Imprint staff John Irving was near, but not quite behind, a pulpit for his recent Waterloo appearance. The First United Church made an appropriate setting for his April 22 reading from A Prayer for Owen Meony, his latest celebration of humanity and belief. Irving is an author skilled at his craft, someone who takes years to write a novel, and leaves little to a&dent. Among his credits are such best-sellers as The World According to Garp, The Cider House Rules, and Hotel New Hampshire, all marvelously sensible and complete accounts of the humour and eccentricity in everyday life. Irving first explained that after numerous readings, he was tired of making selections from the beginning of the novel, but that to read from the end required too much explanation of context. He thep downplayed this, saying that ‘there is a great need for synopses in America today,” especially with an American vice-president who does not read (Dan Quayle]. He chose three significant passages from the first one hundred or so pages of Owen Meany. In a deep, articulate voice, Irving began at the beginning, establishing the close relationship between the narrator, II-year old Johnny Wheelwright, and his best friend, the tiny, sickly, and prophetic Owen Meany. Wheelwright says: “I am a Christian because of Owen Meany,” who has the distinguishing feature of a saueakv, falsetto voice. Irving tKen skipped to a scene

of Johnny and Owen playing with a stuffed armadillo, in which one hides it in a vast ancient closet for the other to find in a thrill of fright. The third excerpt included a dog’s funeral that foreshadows one of the most significant events in the book: Owen Meany’s accidental killing of Johnny’s mother with a foul ball resulting from a rare swing. This act, for a boy who does not believe in accidents, convinces Meany that he must be God’s instrument, and Irving’s narrator speaks with a reverence that

supports this belief, Responding to questions from the audience afterward, Irving provided useful insight into the man behind the books. He answered the standard “Who’s your favourite of your characters?” with Dr. Wilbur Larch from The Cider House Rules. Irving explained he enjoys characters who demand a great deal of work to develop. “I think I should be asking why some of you find bears so interesting,” he said, downplaying the importance of that animal as a recurring symbol in

his earlier work. I-Ie pointed out there are other thematic structures that are more significant and span all seven of his novels. Each book features an incomplete family, one that is “missing a part,” and all of his work includes social violence as part of the North American malaise.’ Irving disagreed with a questioner who felt he had freqentlyoccurring accidents in his novels, and offered the Kennedys’ assassination as an example of an accident in real life that had a more profound effect than any in his novels. “My characters aren’t really eccentric. Most of my characters are much more sensible and explainable than many people in the news... Ronald Reagan is a more incredible character than anyone in my novels.” Irving acknowledged a Dickensian icfluence: “I admire the nineteenth century concept of the novel,” but disagreed that Dickens had little of the common sense humour found in Irving’s work. “Dickens taught me everything I feel I need to know about comedy,” he said. “To convince the reader, emotionally or intellectually, to laugh or cry” takes the same attachment or identification with the characters. “Laurel and Hardy are also among my favourites,” Irving admitted unapologetically that he does not put a lot of himself into his novels. “If I were to write an autobiographical novel, I’d produce one mediumsized volume. Buta novel is supposed to be an invention.” He described much of present-day __ 1 _. writing as showing an “impover-

ishment of imagination.” He also outlined his own writing process, stressing the importance of plot. “I start with a year to eighteen months where I don’t write. I just work out the plot, from end to beginning.” He then writes two orders of events, one strictly chronological and another detailing the order in which he wishes to inform the reader of events. “I’ve read a lot of recent books,” he said, “in which I can tell that the author only knows what’s going to happen five or six pages ahead of me.” Both trving’s recent familiarity with Canada and Owen Meany’s Wheelwright ending up a “failed American ex-patriot” livihg in Toronto prompted a question of the author’s perceptions of, and relationship with, this country. He replied that with growing up outside of Boston, he was familiar with Toronto and Montreal, and expected upon arrival to be met essentially by people much like Americans. We surprised -him, however: “I now notice differences more often than I do similarities.” He gave a closing bash to the Free Trade Agreement, saying the most notable difference between the two countries is that “Canada has this instinctive sense that the welfare of its citizens is the country’s business.” He was astonished any deal placing us closer to the U.S was even considered in this country. John Irving in person did not disappoint. He vvas both a captivating reader and a warmly selfassured author, a novelist in the truest sense.

SSSAAASSS!!!! by Tania

Spencer

“You know what gets me? You become famous and all of a sudden you can’t swear anymore. What the fuck is this?” This is Sass Jordan, and Imprint caught up with her a few weeks ago while she was in Toronto to promote her debut album Tell Somebody. This girl has got quite the attitude, but rightly so considering the flock of groupies she had hanging around. One of them even offered to pay me to introduce him to her. I agreed-free of charge-but then I soon found out that his interest in her had little to do ,with her music. Her looks me certainly an asset, but considering she was recently honoured with a Juno for most promising female,vtist, she deserves to be taken seriously. Well, maybe-.‘.‘honclarred” is too strong a word. Sass certainly isn’t taking it too seriously. “I don’t think I won anything over anybody else” she says, “I’m sure they all worked just as hard as I did. It’s all just a matter of taste. The award hasn’t changed anything. It got me a lot of publicity at the time, but that’s about it.” As far as Sass is concerned, the music business is way too conservative. “This is supposed to be rock and roll-remember!” Rock she does, for not only is her album doing well here in Canada, she is also waiting for the release of Tell Somebody south of the border. “I’d love to get into the States and make some money... I love Canada,

The unkindest cut: fatal, levity by John Ryan Imprint

staff

“Good evening Toronto, it’s been far too long,” was the happy message with which Jaz started the show. I’m sure that everyone thought he was referring to the fact that the Joke hadn’t played the area for seven years. But I’d like to think that he was acknowledging the fact that his band has long outlived its usefulness as a viable musical force. The tenth anniversary tour. Jaz and his troupe of wandering minstrels seem to have chained themselves to an endless treadmill of futility, the ninth circle of hell in the rock and roll creation. Their lives,

and by extension, our lives, are pointless exercises in Spain and suffering. Apart from that, how was the show itself? Actually, not too bad, The opening band, Sturm Group, could use a collective brain and vocal transplant, butthey earned my affection by keeping their set under half an hour. As for Killing Joke, let’s just say that they had their moments. Of course, the highlights were the oldies. Requiem, Change,and The Wait might be ancient history in the post-punk pantheon, but they are truly “classics”. Killing Joke is using this tour to try out material for the next album, to be entitled Extremi-

ties. Another high point occurred when Jaz pontificated at some length about the world and its ills. Top points for humour, lads. So what else can be said that won’t be disclosed in our mystical, soon-to-be-printed interview with the Jokesters? Jaz still paints his face funny colours, but he has eschewed playing keyboards in favor of hopping around like a tortured goblin and playing frontman. Instead an anonymous minion was hidden behind the stacks of speakers to toil and slave over a hot synthesizer. And of course, it being RPM, the volume was well past the threshold of pain. Earplugs were well in order.

-ted et birth? Prince and Jaz Cdemm An exercise in futility, an exthe road ahead is long and I have orcism of the future? No matter, other calls to make in my rounds. the time remaining to us is short, Good evening.

Film says: noone is innocent by John Zacharaih Imprint staff Propelled by a tour-de-force from, of all people, Kevin Bacon, Criminal Law is a challenging morality play set within a crime thriller narrative. The movie is flawed in its latter role, peppered with inconsistencies and one-dimensional characters, but such weaknesses can be forgiven. This picture is a first rate modern fable, debunking consensus morality by presenting a vicious rapist as the only important character with any stable moral foundation, Using this character, Criminal Law also makes a compelling case for values-relativism, and what makes things

unnerving is hearing an unbalanced psychfotic argue an apparently unassailable moral position. Bacon plays Martin Thiel, on trial for a brutal rape/murder [as one of the investigating officers comments, “I’m not sure which he did first”). His defense counsel is Ben Chase (Gary Oldman), an agile barrister who manages to convince the jury of Thiel’s innocence. Chase thinks Thiel was guilty, though; getting him back on the street was just part of his job. He comes to regret his success, however, when two more dead women turn up. Thiel is the prime suspect, and Chase decides to take on his case in an

effort to find information which will convict him. Thiel is a killer who truly believes what he is doing is right. He says to Clhase, “I made a judgment, and I have acted upon that judgment.” Chase, on the other hand, grapples with the guilt he feels by betraying a client. He has no doubt of Thiel’s guilt but, because of his role in society, is prevented from acting as his conscience dictates he should. I don’t want to give any more of this movie away, so I’ll stop now. Just go see it. Criminal Law is genuinely thought-provoking, which is rare for major-studio releases these days. Bacon’s performance alone is worth twice the price of admission.

l-established Hitchcock MO. OK, OK, it’s not that Queen Elvis really bites the big one or anything; the truth is it’s a notbad album. But Robvn Hitchcock isn’t not-bad; he’s great. Sure, I

could throw this album on my turntable Ipretty well any time without too many qualms, but it’s frustrating to see a brilliant artist refuse to challenge himself.

----

DR. DISCby Derek Weiler Imprint staff

“Good for what 1 ails ya!” -DR. DISC

A review of Queen Elvis, or, How To Chum Out Q StondardIssue Robyn Hitchcock Album in Four Easy Steps. Step One: Show off your fondness for the macabre and the whimsical. One glance at the album sleeve-featuring a picture of Hitchcock’s hand literally vegetating, and song titles like Madonna of the Wasps, Veins of the Queen, and The Devil’s Coachman-and you know this guy’s weJtanschauung is just a tad offkilter. But that’s barely scratching the surface. Within the grooves lie a veritable feast of ridiculous-to-sublime lyrics; this album is one forty-minute non sequitur. Check these out: “She’s a squeaking head on a pleasure box” (Superman); “The universe is based on sullen entropy” (The DeviJ’s Comhman); “If I were man enough I’d come on your stump” (Wax Doll). Those aren’t even some of the choice ones. Whoa. Step Two: Include a batch of songs featuring sprightly basslines, aching harmony vocals, and ringing guitar (if at allpossible, you should get your friend Peter Buck to guest on a couple tunes). Sure enough, there’s plenty of songs here filling that bill, like the opening Madonna of the Wasps, which could be tossed onto any Hitchcock LP since Fegmania! without sounding the slightest bit out of place (and Madonna of the Wasps is a truly beautiful song; trouble is, it’s a beauty that’s already been fully explored in previous Hitchcock tunes like Airscope and The Crawling). One Long Pair of Eyes, Veins of the Queen and Superman are also cut from essentially the same cloth. One song, The Devil’s Coachman, takes this approach to the extreme to provide an absolutely authentic Beatles ripoff that outdoes anything Andy Partridge ever dreamed of. And sure enough, Peter Buck does indeed turn in some (uncredited] guitar work on Queen Elvis, as he did on last year’s Globe of Frogs.

Fish

Step Three: Throw in a couple of ethereal, pseudo-haunting numbers. Yes. There’s also plenty of songs in the “other” Hitchcock style. Wax DoJJ, Knife and Autumn Sea all reflect Hitchcock’s contention that music should be “dignified” above all else. Unfortunately, Hitchcock has always had a problem reconciling “dignified” and “interesting”; he has yet to successfully combine the two. Step Four: Toss in some token superficial “surprises” to maintain the illusion that you’re developing and growing as an artist. Chiefest among these is the downright shocking dearth of fish imagery on this album, an unprecedented Hitchcock move.

In the Hitchcockian view, fishliness is next to Godliness, so its puzzling that here he throws his underwater friends over for frogs, wasps and other wildlife, There are also a couple unusual embellishments on the album, like the trilling, medieval horns on Veins of the Queen and One Long Pair of Eyes, or the spoken-word narrative on Autumn Sea. Perhaps most notable, though, is Freeze: the guitar and drums here hint at a raunchiness that’s been absent from Hitchcock’s work since his days with the Soft Boys. But none of these seem to represent a genuine departure; they all seem token and superficial at best, and they don’t mask the fact ihat Queen Elvis varies not an inch from the already wel-

The next wave of the Irish invasion landed on the beaches of the Fed Hall fortress way back on April 30. Hothouse Flowers, those good-natured lads with lots of hair, playing at certainly the most intimate and cozy of campus venues, provided the end-of-term crowd with a spirited and energetic show. But first, some words on the opening act in the person of Martin Stephenson of Newcastle, England. J almost preferred him to the main attraction. But not quite. From their opening greeting to their foot-stomping finale, Hothouse Flowers came to entertain. Though their sourid has more roots in American R&B than traditional Irish music forms, this five-member group makes enough use of some folk instruments and melodies to pl”&e them apart. One thing’s certain: they know how to bring a crowd to its feet. Lead singer Liam O’Maonlay’s eccentric good looks led to an over-representation of females at his end of the stage, but this didn’t appear to distract him. His flowing blond hair tufted out from under a weathered hat that corroborated their discovery by UZ, and he could rock socks even seated at his electric piano. His soulful voice was the blossom of this band as it trilled and lamented its way through songs both celebratory and regretful. His performance left only one question: What’s he saying?!! Except for lines repeated in cho-

Frehley’s

Comet crashes in flames

the vocals were often ruses, undecipherable for those of us without the album. The other band-members, like the leader, exhibited superb musicianship >and a real desire to give the audience a good time. The Flowers really cooked on some snappy piano and percussion-driven numbers like their hit Don’t Go, which Liam facetiously introduced as *‘our favourite song in the world.” They also inserted the obligatory audience participation, but avoided much of the cliche by capturing the Fed Hall audience’s usually brief attention span. The Flowers smelled the sweetest on two mellow numbers near the end. These soothing

tunes established the charisma of the lead singer as the maj’or appeal of this band. And you could, briefly, hear the lyrics. The band encored with another bright and speeding tune, making the crowd a happy and bouncing mass of won-over concert-goers. In fact, when the lights came up, few if any wanted to leave. Those left standing looked like the concert was worth the ten-some-odd bucks spent, One last note: look out for Martin Stephenson, the opening act. Great stuff. His new album arrived at our humble office after the concert, so check this issue for jhe review. Buy it, even if you have to sell your cat.

Part 1 - The Warrior Seasons by Rich Imprint

While some of you work terms during

were off on the winter months, many of the 35 interuniversity athletic teams finished up fine and exciting seasons. Waterloo was particularly successful in men’s volleyball and rugby and women’s squash, boasting high finishes in the CIAU, OUAA, and OWIAA playoffs respectively. This week 4s the beginning of a two part series; the first part will feature Warrior sports, the second Athena sports. volleyball After finishing first in the league standings with a flawless 12-0 record, the Warriors went on to eliminate McMaster in the semi-finals and Western in the ‘finals of the OUAA West divt sion.‘Then, with a third place CIAU ranking, Waterloo was upset by York 3-2 at the OUAA championships. Despite the loss, the Warriors’ ranking earned them a wild card spot in the CIAU championship tournament in Calgary. While ‘there, Waterloo beat UBC 3-2, and then lost to eventual gold medal winner Calgary 3-O. Finally, in the bronze medal round, Waterloo lost to York 3-0, to finish fourth in Canada. Tony Martins was given OUAA all-star ,status. WlbY Following a disastrous O-7 season in 1987, the Warriors remarkably turned things right around in 1988, displaying a perfect 7-O record in the OUAA seI cond division. a In the semi-finals, Waterloo surprised everyone by becoming the first Division Two team in OUAA rugby history to defeat a Division One team in the playoffs, narrowly defeating McMaster 7-4. Unfortunately, the team lost to an extremely powerful Queen’s squad in a

Squash The 1988-89 Warriors placed a notable second in league play and third in the OUAA playoffs. Ron Hurst won a bronze medal in OUAA competition to become the first medal winner in Warrior squash history. He was also named to the OUAA all-star team. Swimming Waterloo finished a comfortable fifth in the OUAA’s in 198889, a season in which many rookies joined the team to build a possible future powerhouse squad.

No Block in site. Ranked in the top ten of the CIAU’s all season, the Warrior it all the way to the nationals in Calgary. mud-drenched final 20-3, here on home turf. OUAA all-star honours went to Hayden Belgrave, Mac Clayton, Jim Closs, Blair Falconer, Adam Kendall and Alan Phillips. Badminton Despite their youth and inexperience, the team improved their OUAA standing this year from fifth to third with a 71 win, 98 loss record. Waterloo’s strong efforts were nullified by Ottawa and Western in the OUAA championships. Basket ball After a mediocre g-9 win-loss pre-season record, the Warriors finished third in league play with an impressive 11-3 record. But the team was humiliated by Guelph in the OUAA semi-finals 74-48. Warrior guard Tom Schneider ‘achieved first-team AILCanadian status, and was also named co-recipient of the Waterloo At-

hletics Male Athlete of the Year Award. Cross-C&Wry The team fitiished fifth in the OUAA this season with the help of a spectacular fourth place finish by Paul Ernst. He has been invited to try out for the Canadian team in 1989. Curling On the ice, the Btone throwers made vast improvements this year, moving up six positions to place third in the OUAA championships with ten wins and five losses. Football Waterloo finished another year with a 0-7 record, but have greatly improved since acquiring new head coach Dave “Tuffy” Knight. Look for Kn-ight’s sideline influence for the first time next season to bring home some wins. Defensive back Larry Vaughn earned first team All-Canadian all-star status this season, and line backer Dave Shaw was named to the All-Canadian second team, and also awarded cowinner of the Waterloo Athletics Male Athlete of the Year Award. Golf This year’s team movedup one notch from last season, finishing ninth of ten teams in the OUAA semi-finals.

Slip, Slide, and Away! It was a muddy OUAA rugby final, but after a flawless 7 - 0 season in Division 2, the Warriors lost to a more powerful Division 1 Queens squad 20 - 3. lmprlnt

Hockey The 1988439 pucksters recorded the best record in ten years, with a 15-8-3 win-loss-tie record, placing second behind Western in the OUAA Central division. However, the Warriors could not shake the playoff jinx again this year, and were upset by third-place York, eventual CIAU champs, two games to one in the semi-finals. The team spent the entire season in the CIAU top ten. Chris Glover finished second in OUAA scoring, and goaltender Mike Bishop achieved first team All-Canadian all-star status.

Veteran Colin Rogers won two races this season and wound up in fourth place in the individual rankings. Rogers will be a part of the Canadian ski team competing in the World University Games in Bulgaria this spring.

Indoor Track & Field Waterloo ended up fifth overall in the OUAA after some exceptional performances that broke several school track records. The 4x200 meter relay team qualified for the CIAU finals, Paul Meikle set records in the 50 and 300 meter events (finishing sixth in the 300 meter event in the CJAU’s), the 4x200 meter relay team finished fifth in. the CIAU rankings setting another record, and John Denny set a record in the OUAA championships in the 60 meter dash. Waterpolo After a disast.rous O-11-1 record last season, Waterloo made a remarkable improvement this year with a 6-951 record, good enough for fifth place in the nine team league, and marking the best record in four years. Norbert Molnar led the Warrior scoring with 25 goals in 16 games. 1

A look ahead at Imprint Sports The summer term is fairly quiet when it comes to varsity sports action. About the only activity right now is football training camp, as Dave “Tuffy” Knight is determined to beat the Warriors unfortunate 30 game skid. After Knight’s extensive scouting search this past term, and his influential debut on the side lines, look for some changes this season, including a possible end to the losing streak. In the summer months, I will be writing a series of sports features, while keeping you informed of incoming varsity sports news and the latest Campus Recreation updates. As usual, there will be features done on the university’s most popular and high profile sports: basketball, footbalI, and hockey. However, keep your eyes open for other interesting features in the sports pages this summer. In

one

such

article,

I, will

be

discussing

the

increasing

popularity of women in hockey, women’s leagues, and the possibility of a future varsity Athena hockey team here at Waterloo. If you would like to write an interesting sports feature or if you have any comments, ,criticisms or suggestions for the summer , issues, please feel free to come down to CCl40. Rich
