hoStbed? of controversy
Over 150 arrested at protest by Fleur Macquwn Imprint staff (OTTAWA)-Over 159 people, including eight from UW DisARMX, were arrested during-a civil disobedience action protesting a military exhibition on Tuesday, May 23. ARMX’89 is the fourth such exhibition of military training technology and equipment. More than 400 exhibitors from 18 countries displayed their products to interested “by invitation only” buyers. ARMX’89 had been the object of widescale protest. UW DisARMX has been active on campus since February, striving to inform the university community about ARMX. On the day the exhibition opened, protesters arrived at Lansdowne Park, the exhibition site, hetween 7:3O and 8:OO a.m. Protestors locked some of the gates with Kryptonite bicycle locks, and formed human barricades in front of three others. Onegroup from Kingston donned orange construction vests and directed exhibitors on their .way to ARMX’89 along the wrung route, said LJW DisARMX /-member Mark Brzustowski. UW DisARMX inembers were involved in the blockade in front .of the main exhibitors’ gate. Protesters went up in waves of four to eight, people; and physically blocked the entrance to exhibitors’ vehicles by lying on the road; As .polic!” officers dragged off those on the road, arresting them in most cases, another wave would take over. No vehic&s got through while the road was blocked, but some people walked through the barricades. The police did not immediately drag protestors away, said Brzustowski; one car was held up for half an hour. Another protestor described the police as _ “disorganized,” as if they were unclear as to their orders. A women’s group sat at the entrance of one gate and wove t
themselves into a large web with balls of wool, so that even people on foot could not get through. Brzustowski said he had heard that some businessmen climbed the fence to get into the park. “The protest was much more successful than the .organizers thought it would be,” another protestor told Imprint. “The police seemed unprepared for the scale of the action.” Apollo Computer exhibitor Ed Hunt said the protestors were not violent, but some “elbowed (him] and shouted obscenities” as he walked in. The ciui! disobedience action was organized by the Alliance for Non-Violent Action, a Toronto-based group. At an organizational meeting held the previous evening, 106 people indicated they were planning to risk arrest, but more decided to demonstrate on the day it&if. By 8:45, all the demonstrators had been arrested, and were taken to the Elgin Street Police Station. At 4~30 p.m., they were brought before a Justice of the Peace and asked to sign a conditioft*ting they WOU-M- -R&~-eturn to the ARMX’89 site until the exhibition ended. Those that signed were released. Thirty-four protesters, four of which were UW DisARMX members, refused to sign. This among group, Brzustowski them, was transferred to the Ottawa-Carleton Regional Detention Centre at lo:30 p.m., after being fed. They had not eaten since early that morning. Between 1l:OO p.m. and 230 a.m. the male protestors -were Brzustowski said. “processed,” They were strip-searched, handed over all their belongings except their clothes, and were asked questions. Six of the men were held in maximum security cells overnight, while the other 11 stayed in the minimum security dorm. Brzustowski did not know why they were held separately, other

than that some had not answered more questions than were required by law, Brzustowski did not know what happened to the wome-n held. After they were asked to produce urine samples, they were allowed to sleep until 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, when they were woken up for breakfast, which was not served until 8:00 a.m. That afternoon, all the protestors met with lawyer Lawrence Greenspon, who offered his ser-
vices free. He had struck a deal with the Justice of the Peace and the Crown whereby the rotestors would be released if t rl e four the Police had. records on signed conditions stating they would not return to Lansdowne Park while ARMX’89 was still on. Once these people signed, everyone was released. On June 1.9, the protesters have a “set-date” hearing,. in which a date will be set for their trial. Brzustoswski expectedthe date would be som!time in IWO.

In all, eight school buses full of protestors crossed the. Ottawa River, bringing with them picket signs, buttons and T-shirts featuring a defecating bull inside a red circle with a slash through it. Also among the protesters were groups of high school students from Kitchener, Montreal’ and Qt tawa. “We are here because we heard about the protest and we support it,” said Jennifer Bizovie, a’ grade nine student at Gloucester:‘High School in Ot-
and orderly fashion. The protestors, chanting “ARMX has got to go, we don’t need no weapons show”, “Hey hey ho ho ARMX has got to go” and “Arretez ARMX” turned the quiet Victoria Day on Bank Street into a sea of banners, picket signs and bodies. Along the route, protestors handed out’ pamphlets and urged merchants and customers standing in store doorways to join them. The protest parade, -which spanned three city blocks, left motorists unable to proceed through intersections, leaking on with impatient amazement. Outside Lansdowne Park, they listened to 60s folk songs and cheered speakers. Debbie Ellis, from the Alliance for NonViolent A&oh, got the crowd going when she .told them,. “We are going to come back here tomorrow morning and shut this thing down.” Anarchist ,.i(eith Haysons reminded the protestors, “we might say it is the previous generation who created this problem, but that will not make it go away. We must take responsibility.”

Asked if their parents were also taking part in the protest, one of the students responded, “No, and they are not too happy I came down-my dad works for External Affairs.” After a few quickpep speeches, and the reading of the mamh rules by organizer Richard Sanders, this group began its ,three kilometre trek across Laurier St. and down Bank St. to Lansdowne Park-home of ARMX’89. The forty- minute parade was escorted by three police cruisers, while twenty “Peace Keepers” in blue and yellow tie-dyed t-shirts with heartshaped peace signs tried to keep the marchers moving in a slow

Taking responsibility was the main reason so many Canadians, from so many walks of life, gave up a Victoria Day Monday to come to Ottawa. They all seemed to agree, as one speaker put it“We do not inherit this planet from our ancestors but borrow it from our children.”

Convocation this terrjn saw the release of 2510 undergraeuates, ready to descend on life after university. The faculty ‘of arts produced the most undergrad degree recipients with 792 gr& duands. Engineering was second with 533, follolwtid by math@ matics (4883; science [443); and environmental studies, hum9 kinetics and leisure studies, and integrated studies with ,274, ‘-$ A large donation for the newly created Plummer’s Pledge caused a big stir at the engineering convocation. G.raduating engineers pledged a total of $98,000 to aid engineering at Waterloo. The Plummer’s Pledge, introduced at the Engineering Grad Ball held March 11, is a pledge program started by the Engineering Graduation Committee. Engineers made individual pledges of $300, to be paid in three equal installments during the first three years of employment after graduation.
Feds courted by CFS. by Liave I&son Impiint stpf Waterloq’ continues to be courted foq full membership in the Canadign Federation of Students after%lmo~t three years of . “prospective membership.” The latest courtship dance was the May 14-20 Annual General Meeting in Sackville, New , Brunswick. p Sponsored by UW’s Federation of Stlidents, six delegates attended at ‘a cost of over $4,000. The delegates were Dave Readman, Fed President; Fran Wdowczyk,. Vice-President (University Affairs); student councillors ,,Roger Tudor (Math) and .Kare@ Gregory, (E.S.); Council speaker Tim Jackson; and Cerwin Friesen, appointed next year’s external commissioner. ’ The delegates are expected to prestint reports at the next Students’ Cou#cil meeting on June 25.
In l984, the Feds terminated a 1%ybar mebbership in CFS and its gredeCessors, Students’ Council made the decision to withdraw from the evolving CFS without calling a student referendum-ledding to suits and counter-suits that gave rise to a 1986 out-cif-court settlement: Waterloo would become prospective members, Waterlooiwas given two years to decide b$ referendum whether to upgrade to full member status. But the November 1987 referendum went against CFS membership: 1,349 students voted no; 745, yes. . The issue was not settled in the minds of some students. Students’ Council directed delegates (including then-VPUA, Wendy Rinella) to request prospective membership status again. It was granted in fall 1988, and expires in 1990. Why the change,*of heart? Ac-
cording to an October 1988 Fed memo: “Discussion around ‘the motion indicated that Council possesses a good knowledge of CFS and wishes to continue national involvement. It was... geherallyk accepted that the “Yes-CFS” side... was poorly organized and that students were not properly educated about the issues or about the organization. Indeed the Chairperson of the “No-CFS” side ‘stated that the “Yes” side had run an “Anti-No” campaign rather than a true “Yes” campaign.” Imprint had provided advance front-page coverage of the referendum and the three forums that preceded it. Prospective member schools pay only five per cent of the fees required by full members ($4 per student), but are accorded full voting and speaking privileges; prospective members cannot take advantage of services like the International Student Card, Student Saver, and the National Student Health Plan; among other programs designed to save students money. At least three delegates say CFS was not given a fair shake in the last referendum, Readman “It’s something I told Imprint: want to make sure everybody knoivs a lot about before it comes to a vote.” He would like to see a referendum coincide with the next Fed election. Even Tim Jackson, who initially ,campaigned against CFS, says “the feeling was that students probably needed to be more informed. “I currently believe Waterloo should bkcome full members of CFS--you have more lobbying clout
cent as opposed to 50 per cent of the students (in Canada).” He was referring to the “big schools” such as Queen’s and Western who had pulled out of CFS during the referendum period, Both now hold prospective memberASp. ’
Jackson said he lobbied against CFS in the referendum because, at the time, there was an alternative: The Canadian University Student Executive Conference (CLJSEC). “CUSEC is dead now; there are no alternatives..,I’ve always maintained Waterloo has needed a national lobbying organization. “If no one was lobbying for us, we would have had the shit kicked out of us over the past three or four years. Who else would have been there-if CFS. hadn’t been at Wilson’s prebudget meeting, for example.” The fact that CFS is given an “aufomatic pre-budget meeting” proves it is respected, Jackson said. “[The conference) was certainly worth the money. It was important for us to get a wide diversity of people there to see what CFS was about.” Wdowczyk, too, believes students were short-changed by the e“Yes” campaign: “Students didn’t have the foggiest idea what the issues were.” The VPUA says this time around, the priority is “getting the information out to the students. “It doesn’t matter how they vote-as long as they have the information.” Wdowczyk is pro-CFS: “I gained a lot of information that I can now use to the advantage of students,” she said, adding she is impressed with CFS’s research. She said that by finding out about other schools’ experiences with transit passes, for example, she and a Waterloo delegation were able to present a unified front to Kitchener city council: “We gave [Mayor) Dom Cardillo a lot to think about. He seemed impressed with our data.” Full membership in CFS would mean an additional’ nonrefundable $4 on each student’s fee statement, although a special deal would have to be struck to reflect that Waterloo is a co-op school.

Imprint, Friday, June 2, 1989
Social change: difficult, dangerous
The organized opposition to ARMX ‘89 in Ottawa was an unforgettable experience. I saw people hurt by the police, intentionally, when it was completely unnecessary. I heard how two diabetics were refused treatment i.n their‘cells. I was lied to by the police when I called for information. I heard court officials lie to the crowds outside. Yet I am expected to believe, and you are asked to believe daily, that the government and the police act in the publi‘c interest. We are asked to believe that justice prevails in our society. We are asked to .believe that eople who get arrested have done something wrong. We are asked to r3 elieve that the process of law and the court is worthy of respect. I cannot respect liars. I cannot, I will noi, respect those who purposely cause others pain and hide behind the mask of officialdom while doing it, Whether you agree with the viewpoints held by those who pro* tested the presence at ARMX ‘89 of representatives from South Korea, Chile and South Africa or not, I hope you can admire the courage it took for t-hem to risk arrest and personal deprivation to stand firmly behind their beliefs and to try to prevent, without hurting anyone, the continuation of an act they perceived as ndt only morally wrong, but also illegal under Canadian law. “You can’t give them all those fingers and that stuff.” warned the sheriff’s officer at the court door, referring to the peace signs being offered silently to the defendants. Why not? “This is a Canadian court of law. You can’t behave like that in a court of law.” Why not? Because it’s a court of law, it seems. A circuitous argument. They labelled it. It’s just a room with people in it, one masquerading as “justice”. I heard the same officers lie to the people wanting to get in to the court, telling them there were no more seats when there were plenty of seats. Apparently, you can behave like that in a Canadian court of law. We are so easily fooled by our own masks. So easily confused by our own inventions. A large cop was hurting a demonstrator. “Stop that!” I yelled. “You don’t have to do that!“He squeezed the quiet protester’s jaw muscles. I “You gonna get up ?‘,I he. hissed menacingly. Someone took a picture, He finally contented himself with dragging the.demonstrator away, which was all he needed to do in the first place. Maybe they didn’t need to do that. They didn’t bother to find out. No warnings were issued. No one was asked to move. Is this Canada? I elected not to get arrested. I had decided it was pointless to get arrested, that the publicity generated by the mass protest on May 22 would be enough, that getting arrested on top of it when we *knew* such action would not stop ARMX ‘89 from going ahead, when we knew we simply would be* removed only made us look like crazies who didn’t know when to quit. I also thought a lot of people would chicken out, and predicted only about 40 to 70 would go ahead with the non-violent action on the 23rd of May. _ Ottawa police had to arrest 150 people. It made national news. Wolfgang Schmidt, the organizer of ARMX, was ready to agree on national radio never to invite foreign representatives to ARMX again. Of those arrested, 34 were detained past Tuesday for refusing to sign a form stating they would avoid the area of the demonstration. Most of those detained save one or two were released because it was decided that there were just too many people lined up for shqwcause bail hearings on May 24. Strength in numbers. Were the arrests pointless? I’m not sure. I wonder if we would have accomplished our goals on the strength of the protest alone. I think we would have, but the arrests underscored the issue, made it clear that people were willing to do more than vocalize. I am glad now I was not arrested. I am proud of t.he people.who wepe. Next time, I may choose to take that risk myself. My role on the day of the civil disobedience was jail support. That meant I did not do anything I was certain would cause my own arrest, but atterppted to help those who were arrested by being available to make phone calls for them, checking on their status, appearing in court for their bail hearings, watching their personal belongings, or 3 anything else I could do. It turned out to be very difficult to help. The police held all the arrestees incommunicado and lied to me when I called to check on the charges. Only through a chance call to another jail support person who had managed to spqak to a female prisoner who demanded her one phone call did I discover thetime of the court hearings, less than J an hour before they began. I was told how nine women were crammed into a 5 by 7 foot jail cell. One was throwing up into the single toilet in the cell. The cops called them “babes”. I was told how breasts were used for handholds by male cops. None of throse arrested, not even diabetics, were fed until 1O:OO that-night, even though they had not eaten since 6:00 that morning and had spent at least 12 hours in jail. At no time were the prisoners informed as to what would happen to them, where they would be taken and when, what the court procedure would be like. Why do people throw civility out the window when they put on uniforms? Paddy wagons have no ventilation, Handcuffs hurt. Certainly prisoners in Canada are treated better than they are in some other places. Is that any reason to ignore the abuses that do take place here? These people had not been convicted of anything. They were not in jail to be punished, only to be processed, but they were treated as convicted criminals. Protesting, being disobedient, is never easy. It’s not how most of us have been raised. But it is becoming increasingly necessary. We need \ to rethink our beliefs. Which authority is legitimate? And which is illegitimate? We are not living in a just society. That is a-myth. The only way to change it is to stop living the life offered by the system, stop adapting to the status quo. We can complain until we are breathless. We ca.n lament or sigh and accept, We can abandon all imagination in favour of cynicism and admonish our idealistic friends that “life’s not fair”. Or we can do our damnedest to change it, at great personal risk. We changed forever the future of ARMX. We can, and we will, do it again. We can change “the ‘way things are”. We must. ’
I apologize for the lateness of this federal budget report; Mr. Wilson’s propaganda package was supposed to reach me three weeks ago. One of the main differences between this -budget and previous ones, is that this one mentions a goods and services Tax (GST). The finance department has five books on the budget, and one of them is devoted to explaining this new tax, which is part of the tax “reform” which “major economic will provide benefits” for Canada. The GST will be a nine percent tax on a “much broader range of goods and services than the existing federal sales tax”. It also will eliminate opportunities for manufacturers to avoid taxes by slightly modifying a product to alter-its tax status. The implementation of the GST at nine percent will also cause a “one time i&ease in consumer prices of about 2.5 to 3 per cent on average. There will be a new Goods and Services Tax Credit introduced with the GST which tvill be double the existing sales tax credit. The GST really doesn’t bother me; the government does whatever it likes and Canadians a<e, for the most part, too lazy OF too used to tax increases to do something about it. What bothers me are contradictions and promises he can’t keep within the material called the budget. Mr. Wilson claims that “the new system will not pose a barrier to the affordability of housing,” while his budget calls for a one percent increase on the tax of construction materials and equipment for buildings, Furthermore, the government is predicting that this increase will contribute to the federal revenue by two hundred- and fifty million dollars. How do Canadians shell out an extra $250 million and still have the same .affordable housing? That $250 million is not including the wide variety of other taxes we have to pay on other go’ods, services, and our income. There
phrases assuring us how well our businesses will do, like “the new system will establish a level playing field for Canada’s dtimest ic producers,” and “St rengthening Canada’s international competitiveness.” These phrases are reminiscent of the jargon
an entertaining tossed around back when free trade was being negotiated. There are also signs that the governme,nt has awakened to the fact that the world is in a sad state of health. Leaded gas and leaded aviation gas went up two cents per litre on April 28, and will go up another cent on January 1 of next year, while unleaded gas is just going up one cent on each of the aforementioned dates. They also have declared machinery used in toxic waste treatment plants in the processing or treatment of toxic waste will be tax-exempt. One noticeable complaint from taxpayers in recent years is that Mulroney is too pro-business, and consequently businesses don’t pay enough taxes. This is true, and Mr. Wilson has made a feeble attempt to remedy this. A new large corporations tax of 0.175 % [annual) will be levied on corporate capital employed in Canada in excess of
$10 million. I don’t know how businesses feel about this tax, but I’d send Wilson a thank-you card if I owned a business. The section that tells us about the duty-free items provides readers with another good laugh. Here are just ti few items that are now duty-free, word for word: - Materials for use in manufacture of upper atmospheric rer search rockets - Photomasks for the manufacture of semi-conductors - Lamp bulbs for the production of Christmas lighting sets - Satellites and satellite subsystems for testing; articles for use in the manufacture of satellites and satellite subsystems. If you don’t believe in taxes, it’s really quite a humorous book to read, seeing how they try to justify the new taxes. I recommend you get one right away, Just phone I-800-267-6620 and ask for a copy.

about the Pill?
SEXPERT: If taking the Pi11 stops the egg from being released and you have been taking the Pill for 10 years, does that mean that you will be fertile for IO years I-onger? ANSWER. No, the end of a female’s fertile stage (menopause] will not be delayed by the length of time she is on the Pill. The ovaries contain far more undeveloped eggs than will ever be released, and the onset of menopause has nothing to do with the number of unreleased eggs that remain in the ovaries’, At birth the ovaries contain 40,000 to 400,000 immature eggs. Once a female reaches puberty, one of those eggs matures and is released into a fallopian tube during each menstrual cycle. A female with a 28 day cycle would ovulate approximately 500 times between her first period and menopause. Therefore, roughly one per cent (or less) of the eggs in the ovaries will mature during her lifetime.
DEAR * take

Shop to stop excess packaging
weekend I went camping and forgot to What are the chances that I could have
become pregnant? ANSWER: .I”11 assume that you missed one of th-e 21 active pills from your package. 11 you have a 28 day pack and missed one of the 7 sugar (placebo) pills, it would not have any effect on the effectiveness of the Pill. I will also assume that you are taking a combined (estrogen and progestin) pill. The consequences of missing a mini-pill [progestin only) are greater than those of missing a combined pill. The effect of missing one pill will vary depending on factors such as the dosage of your prescription and the length of time you have been taking oral contraceptives. If you have been on the Pill for awhile and missed only that one during your cycle, there is very little chance of a pregnancy. When one pill is not taken the levels of estrogen and progesterone in your body will not likely have decreased enough to allow ovulation to occur. If more than one pill is missed, ovulation might occur and this could result in pregnancy. When you forget one pill and realize it later that day, take it as soon as you remember and then take the next day’s pill at the regular time. If you don’t remember until the next day, take two pills that day and continue as usual for the rest of the cycle. If you forget a pill two days in a row, take the first missed pill as soon as possible and take the regular one for that day at its normal time‘. The next day take the second missed pill in addition to the regular pill for that day. Be careful though never to take more than two pills in a day. When two pills during a cycle have not been taken at their regular times, you must use a backup method of birth control (i.e condoms and foam) until your next period starts. Even if only one pill was missed, it might be a good idea to use a backup method for your peace of mind. The Pill is most effective when it is taken every day at the same time (give or take 1 hour). Any deviation from this increases the chance of an unplanned pregnancy. If someone is repeatedly forgetting pills, we suggest that she switches (at the start of the next pack) to another time of day when it is easier to remember.

*Give preference to re-usable, durable or recyclable products and packages-just say “no” to disposable lighters and razors, etc. *Avoid packingthings twice-for example, don’t use clear plastic bags to wrap your fruit and vegetables, when you’re just going to put them in another shopping bag at the check-out. *Choose items with minimal or no packaging, such as fresh foods. *Avoid individually wrapped or single serving size portions. When possible, buy greater quantities and divide it up at home. *Avoid take-out food. *Bring back shopping bags to re-use, or simply use a canvas or string shopping bag, or your knapsack. In conjunction with Canada’s Environment Week, WPJRG will be in the/Waterloo Town Square from June 5-10 with a display on excess packaging (we’ll be outside Laura Secord, where they have ice cream cones, which have no package]. For more information on packaging and other environmental issues, call WPIRG at 884-9020.
Yes, WPIRG is still talking about excess packaging, because it just won’t go away. Packages serve a-lot of very useful purposes: they’re convenient, they keep products fresh and secure and make things look attractive. On the other hand, 30-60 per cent of the waste stream in Ontario is made up of some form of packaging+ and that’s a serious problem. The fact is that many packages serve their purpose in a wasteful and inefficient manner, A lot of packaging is simply a frivolous marketing ploy, Frequently, packages have a useful life of less than a minute or two-the time it takes to bring a burger from the counter to a table. As consumers we pay for all of this twice, first in the form of higher product price, then later when our municipalities have to dispose of the discards. Not to mention that producing all this disposable packaging is eating up natural resources and causing pollution. Not to despair, As shoppers we can have a real impact on the situation byexpressingourpreferences when we purchase. Here are some tips to follow:
TO YOUR HEALTH Sitting
in the sun can be hazardous
Summer is here, and ‘tis the season to take in the rays and catch that nice healthy tan you’ve waited all year for, right? Wrong! The main known cause of skin cancer is repeated exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. A pigment substance, melanin, may be able to filter out some of the sun’s rays, but does not totally block out harmful rays. Fair skinned people have even less melanin than others, and thus are more susceptible to skin cancer. There are three main types of skin cancer, classified according to the cells which are involved: basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, and melanoma skin cancer. Basal cell cancer is ‘the most common, but it grows slowly and rarely spreads. Squamous cell cancer occurs less frequently, and may spread more rapidly. These two types account for over 93 per cent of all types of skin cancer, and although they can occur anywhere, they appear most frequently on the exposed areas, namely the face and hands. Malignant melanoma, although relatively uncommon, occurs most frequently in younger age groups, and can spread within the body to other organs. This type of cancer usually starts as a dark brown mole-like spot, and it may change colour or shape, and itch or bleed.
Signs to look for include a spreading of skin growth, often darker in colour, a mole or beauty mark that changes in appearance or has an odd shape, or an open sore that does not heal. You should aJways use sun screen, Use one that contains PABA to absorb the ultraviolet rays, or use a sunblock containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which will deflect the ultraviolet rays. Use a minimum SPF (sun protection factor] of 15, higher [Al plus] if you are fair skinned.
Remember: That “lobster red” sunburn is a sign of skin damage. This damage will not go away, but will build with each sunburn, and this accumulation can lead to skin cancer! For more information on this ,topic or tithers, phone the He&h and Safety Resource Network

Group IobbieS for Canadian P’
Dem Emding recognition
Imprint staff While writers from across Canada gathered at UW’s Village Two Conference Centre over the past weekend for the annual general meeting of the Writers’ Union of Canada, a maverick group of women writers held their own meeting, stating clearly they think the status of female writers in Canada should be a higher priority for the union and the Publishing industry in general. The new group, which held’its founding meeting in the psychology building on Saturday afternoon, calls itself Canadian Women Writers, Their goal is to promote women writers in Canada by lobbying interests such as the publishing industry, Canada Council for the Arts and the Canadian Authors’ Association, According to Anne Innis Dagg, one of the founding members and a professor here at UW, only 31 per cent of the books published in Canada between spring 1984 and spring 1985 were by women authors. At the same time, women represented over 50 per cent of the membership of the Writers’ Union which Sheelagh another founding Conway, member, says is unacceptable, She added, “We are totally disil: lusioned with the Writers’ Union; it has done little of substance to help women writers in Canada.” Conway said having a woman as the chairperson of the union or in a high position in publishing does not necessarily help women writers. “An inditidual woman cannot reverse the pattern of systemic discrimination in industry because the publishi,, she is part of that system.” The group’s goal is to operate outside the system, enabling them to influence it more effectively. Canadian Women Writers has several specific goals they want to fulfil to find a greater market for female authors. They insist on mandatory affirmative act ion in the publishing industry, with at least 50 per cent of books published to be by women, arguing that taxpayers’ money which funds writers should be distributed fairly. They would also like to see money go to working class women and non-white women. Rota Lister, another founding member and a creative writing professor in UW’s English Department, said they want to encourage women to bring their manuscripts out of the closet. Quoting Goethe, she said, “A tal-

Admitting The group does not expect ’ support from the most prominent Canadian women writers !such as Margaret Atwood and Alice Munro. Sheelagh Conway says these people receive considerable support from the publishing industry and the government and can be at most quietly critical. They want to “maintain a vii sion of the collective” and they also \*/ant to remember those who a;*e not published once tht:y are published themselves. The Writers’ Union does not disagree with the principles described by Canadian Women Writers. Susan Crean, a union member, said she Joes not oppose the group in any way and that she would in fact, “value their input.” Crean said the new :xoup is like a radical caucus, tnci willhelp bring change.

writers. At this year’s general meeting, a major motion was passed. which combines the union with the National Council’on the Status of Women to develop a comprehensive policy statement on the status of women writers. They are particularly interested in Arts Council grants and juries, teaching positions at high schools, and university English and creative writing departments. The group will present these issues to publishers, funding bodies and governments. The motion passed at the general meeting also forces the union to commit necessary funds and staff to keep information and data about the status of women writers up-to-date. Crean concluded by saying this issue is not really a battl4 between the Writers’ Union and the new group. The real issue is “women writers versus the publishing industry, and I challenge you to find one woman here this weekend who does not agree with what they (Canadian Women Writers) are trying to do,”

UW Chinese students Have added their voices to those protesting worldwide to show support for Chinese student demands for democracy and more freedom. On May 18, over 60 students marched through campus, carrying banners and shouting slogans such as “Down with corruption, down with dictatorship, down with feudalism” and “Support Chinese students.” They stopped outside the Arts Library for half an hour, where Ruopeng Zhu spoke in Mandarin Chinese on the situation in China. Originally students had asked for dialogue with the‘chinesegovernment, Ruopeng said. But now they no longer demand dialogue, just the resignation of 84year old military leader Deng Xiaoping.. He reported many famous Chinese scholars, scientists and professors are supporting the students. The rally was organized at midnight the previous night by

About 3,000 people attended this rally that urged the federal government to suPPort students in China. Similar rallies were held in Ottawa, Vancouver, and other major citie’s
around the world, including on& of 80,000 students in Beijing itt?mlF zmG11. The Chinese Graduate Students and Scholars Association will organize other activities if they feel it necessary, Fangju said.

The sight of flowing blood and weakened students did not deter people from lining up in the Campus Centre’s Great Hall last Monday. They were there for a Red Cross blood donor clinic, sponsored by the Arts Student Union. Quotas for the number of donors are set at between 250 and 325 per clinic, depending on current blood supplies. The Red Cross met its total with appro,ximately 325 donors. Many people are unaware of the need to donate blood, so the Red Cross has begun programs in high schools in an attempt to make regular donors of young people as soon as they become eligible. You must be at least 17 years old to donate. Headquarters for the clinic are located in Hamilton. Staff and equipment are-transported to the clinic location each time a clinic is held, Standing clinics are available, but are expensive to operate; Kitchener-Waterloo is too small to have one. Not all of the staff at blood donor clinics a‘re volunteers; many nurses are required, as well as one or two full-time Red Cross employees. At fhe UW clinic, there were 24 Red Cross volunteers, as well as members of the fraternity Sigma Chi, who helped by putting up posters and setting up equipment. On the day a clinic is held, four trips are made to Hamilton to ship blood to begin testing. Each unit of bloodis tested separately for different infections and diseases. One unit of blood is .5 litres, or about one-twelfth of the blood in the body. Blood donor clinics are held twice a term on campus, with the next one in July. Blood supplies are adequate for now, #but more. donors are always needed, especially those with type 0 negative blood, currently in very short supply.

Question: If ;you’re in a vehicle travelling at t’he speed of light, and you turn on your headlights, would they do anything? Signed: Anonymous Answer: This is a rather difficuli question because it’s impossible for anything except light, photq ons, to travel at the speed oi light, accordi:ng to Relativity Theory. A photon is incapable ol splitting, consequently it cannol emit anything: it can only be destroyed by a collision with another particle. If a car moving just under fhE speed of light uses its lights, a motionless person in front of il will see gamma rays, and a mo. tionless person behind it will set radio waves coming from fhE car.

Most people would agree that, in the west, people are fre& than in, say, the Soviet Union or Poland& the West, we do not fear state repression, we are free to speak hur minds, and our economic status (and thus, to some degree, our social status) is determined by our willingness to work. In a free-market capitalist system, we can have anything we want, as long as we are willing to work for it. This litany of rights sounds good when we read it or repeat it to ourselves reassuringly. It is a cultural and political declaration of faith,.pounded into our heads by our news, entertainment, and advertising. It is, in many ways, RO longer true, however, and our continued acceptance of this myth as truth demonstrates how powerful propaganda can be when aided by cultural bankruptcy. In North America, we have been raised to believe many myths. We believe our government will work for us and our interests. We believe our media are honest, unbiased and accurate. We believe in jobs as arbiters of our worth as individuals. We believe in many things having to do with t&h, justice, and so on. But how much do we know? Do we know about cotton workers in the south-east U.S., left useless because df brown lung? Do we know about the hundreds of women worldwide suffering because of the D&on Shield? Do we know about the true state of our native people, or even how Free Trade with the U.S. will affect US?
Power comes when people submit No, we don’t, because if we did, North America would be a different place. Why don’t we know? Why isn’t this information reaching us, galvanizing us, as- a society, into action? The problem has to do with power and how it is used -not just political and socio-economic power-but the power of ideology as faith. Forget the new-age, cyberpunk rhetoric currently elbowing its way to the forefront of popular thought: powef is not’information. Power is gained through the efficient and effective tra,nsmission of information, or through force. The phrase “power is information” is a useless, amorphous Naisbitism and needs to be discarded, Power comes when people submit. They will submit by force or by choice; if by force, they submit through threats, harassment and violence; if by choice, they submit freely and willingly, believing it is right for those who hold power to do so, In North America, we have done the latter. We have given politicians power through our votes; we have given businesspeople power through our purchases. These people now have the power and ability (which we have given them over the course of decades) to control almost all the information we receive. This power’can be used to deceive us, and in many cases, this is precisely what happens. In the 195Os, a Canadian named Marshall MacLuhan put forward an extraordinary theory, stating in essence that a society’s dominant means of communication deter_ mined how its members interacted with each other and their environment, MacLuhan likened the human condition to a pendulum, swinging from a non-literate state to a literate one, and back again. The 20th century is a non-literate time, its dominant media, radio and television, allowing us to interact more fully with our fellows and our world than writing did, creating a new global village.
MacLuhan contrasted thi6i new era with the previous, literate-one, in which people remained detached from their environment because they received their information in a detached form such as writing. Radioaand television, says MacLuhan, give us our information in a more immediate, encompassing way; we can choose to read or not to read, but, unless we are deaf, blind or asleep, we always see and hear. At roughly the same time that MacLuhan’s ideas were finding a wide and adoring audience, North American businesspeople and manufacturers and the advertisers they hired became aware of two important things which meant his vision would not come to pass.
Writer Jacques Ellul pointed out that good propaganda does not modify beliefs but rather determines action. With depthprobing, the consumer is never asked to act rationally or to change his or her beliefs. These are left intact; it is only actions that are affected. The advent of depth-probing as a marketing device began a flurry of consutier activity in North America which shows no signs of subsiding. As such, it has served North American business interests admirably, beperpetuates spend, cause it reinforcesand ing behavior. However, advertising seives a much larger, and much more insidious purpose;
The 1980-81 imposition of mar ial law in Turkey aroused little media attention despite ar : ests, torture and execution. First, they discovered, through dareful observation of consumer behaviqur, a strong difference between the way people shopped and consumed, and the wa t’hey said they shopped and consumed. F eQple thought themselves to be rational in their buying habits, and claimed to buy healthy food, intelligent magazines and functional, sturdy cars. However, statistics revealed that they were really buying trashy food, sleazy magazines and flashy cars, I other 3 words, consumer activity was not be‘1 ng directed by rationality, but by egotis , vanand the desire “t o be ity, selfishness entertained rather than educated. Second, manufacturers realized that rapid technological improvements 1 were equalizing the quality of all consumer products. Thus products could no lon er be recommended on the basis of superio P quality, as they had been in the past. A new advertising method had to be found. Advertisers quickly hit upon this n c w appreach. Known as depth-probing, it $dvertised consumer products and servi$es by appealing to the consumer’s ego, van*ty, repressed infantile desires, and so o This innovation marked the transition fr a m advertising as a [relatively) reasoned, dboveboard appeal, to advertising as propaganda. l
Most people know that advertising is propaganda: that is, in a discussion about the subject, they say “I know advertising is propaganda. I don’t think I’m affected by it, etc., etc., blah, blah...” However, advertising does not just try to motivate us to buy cars, radios and other shoddy junk. It helps to re-inforce, on a very basic level, our collective socio-political faith, because it is a manifestation of our freedom to consumea freedom supposedly guaranteed by capitalism. Ads are, quite simply, shock treatment, strengthening a power structure in the context of which dissent is not forbidden but, even worse, rendered meaningless. According to Edward S, Herman, this power structure has not been built purposely to control information, but it has nonetheless evolved into a body that does. [The following information is drawn largely .from Herman’s description of media control in his book The Real Terror Network, which is much easier to understand and digest than his recent hit with Noam Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent.) Herman sees the mass media [in the U.S., specifically) under the sway of three important influences. First, the media, business and government are, at the highest levels, controlled by people whose interests are the same; second, the content of the mass media

Considered individually, phenomena like media bias and advertising may just seem like troublesome spanners in an otherwise smoothly running and just system of free enterprise and consumer activity. That is precisely
But advertising and media bias are manifestations of a well-developed propaganda system; its purpose is to leave our basi!:, assumptions about our society, which are generally favorable, intact. If this can be done, then modifying our actions, or preventing detrimental ones, becomes an easy matter. Advertising turns us
On an international scale, things are not much better; eighty-five percent of the international news flow is handled by only four agencies: UPI, AP, Reuters and Agence France-Presse. As well, the directionsf information flow in the world is distinctly one-way. Most nations are consumers rather than producers of information. For developed nations, this means pressure to develop a separate media identity. But for pourer, nations, the implications are much more serious. There are two problems related with media and the Third World. The first is the sensational coverage given to Third World issues in the Western, press; this focus diverts our attention from truly important matters like cultural identity or appropriate technology development. The second is media imperialism; underdeveloped countries cannot afford, or do not know how to use,-Western technology. At the same time, they are presented with a deluge of Western media information, in ‘both entertainment and news. So not only are poorer countries unable to assert a media identity of their own, they are constantly,‘ being influenc.ed to adopt Western values (just lil-ce we are). The result of this arrangement is that neo-colonial dependencies are perpetuated.’ The indigenous elites in the developing countries welcome such media penetration, seen as a sign of “progress” and modernization, but it sets unattainable and in.appropriate goals for Third World citizens.
Are our thoughts, opinions, and loyalties being managed for the benefit of a select few’?
In 1986, over half the daily papers, magazines, television outlets, book publishers and movie makers in the U.S. were controlled by only 26 companies. The trend toward corporate consolidation means this number will get even smaller with time, The recent Time-Warner merger is a sobering example. As this control tightens, the information available will be further restricted. T-he problem is not just bias. As Herman says, what weI know and think about is being managed. As one of manv examples, Herman cites U.S. media coverage of-martial law in Poland in 1981-82, which was denounced as ‘*communist, totalitarian abuse” of trade unions. However, the 1980-81 imposition of martial law in Turkey, a US. client state, aroused little to no media attention or anger, despite the arrests, torture and executions that occurred in Turkeya at that time.
Hontrol into consumer hogs, glomming as much as we can under the misguided belief that it is our right to do so. It does much more than motivate us to buy.. Advertising helps to legitimize an object-oriented society for us* all the while producing reirenue for companies and canglomerates that will continue to deceive us in order to aquire . m’ore objects themselves (i.e. profit]. Many of these companies are media enterprises, and their goal is to make money by distributing information. They, not you, control what is seen on television, and in the newspapers and magazines, People think that the common wa e-earner determines the content of sue a things: “Why would they produce a product (i.e. Golden Girls) that no one wants to buy?” Because
is determined, to a large extent, by its sponsors, whose money maintains it; third, the mass media receives most of its information from powerful government or business sources, or from major news agencies, that are the only sources with the money and resources to provide information about the world on a daily basis. Herman and Chornsky’s book is based upon the description of five filters, three of which are analogous to Herman’s media influences.‘The other two filters are flak directed at and objection to media content, which can be costly and embarrassing for the media; and the ideo1ogy of anticommunism, which provides a rallying point for silencing any group or person who threatens the established property-owning power structure, It is worth contrasting the rather extreme arguments of Chomsky, Herman and others (i.e., Ben Bagdikian) with more moderate, mainstream media criticism that casts journalists as sensation-seeking opportunists who root a little too much for the home team, In such a role, the mass media are generally seen as responding to the needs of the lowest common denominator, but capable of being objective and responsible should the need arise (i.e. Watergate). The problem with this interpretation is that it insulates the media from influence to which, logically, it must be subject.
they want money, that’s why. And it is sponsors,not you, who provide the prime source of income for media enterprises. If each of us could broadcast our own television signal,. then the world probably would be a MacLuhanesque global village. But the power to transmit information [i.e. the materials, the money, the distribution infrastructure) is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, and guiding these hands are the sponsors. As a result, we rarely hear about human rights abuses at home or abroad if those sponsors have an interest in operating there. The obvious solution to the problem is to strip the sponsors of their power to determine what we see and hear. But it is us who give them this power, freely and willingly. We are responsible for our own deception. We have no real history as North Amcricans, no past against which to measure the present. We have always believed in free enterprise and the power of money, the value of property, and the right to consume. And businesspeople and politicians have transformed these beliefs into an ideology which has, more or less, remaitied intact from its inception until now. We have believed it, held it close to our hearts, and remained completely oblivious to what is going on akoundus. At this point, a qualification is in order. Althounh Canada is not the US,, and to apply &n argument based mainly on US. sources and examples is not entirely fair, all major Western media is dominated by the pressures of advertising. As well, US, corporate penetration into Canada is both deep and pervasive. Canadians are rabid consumers, justlike Americans. And, in the end, American -political and economic events have deep reperoussions here.
The response to this poblem (a useful examination of which can be found ,in Schiller’s Mass Media and American Empire) has been a call for world-wide democratization of information and media systems under the rubric “New World Informat ion and Communication Ordier.” This reorganization of the global media , would entail some far reaching structural changes, promoting among other things a lessening of the media deluge from North to South, an increasing flow of information from South to North, and a simplifying and cheapening of communication technology so that it can be used by,all-not just those with the proper money and training. Basically, what we have to realize is that access to information and awareness of information are different states. While infor- #mation is accessible about human rights abuses and government corruption in the Eastern bloc and conversely about the CIA payoff to Edgar Chamorro (a former Contra spokesperson who was paid to have the Contras take credit for sabotage actually carried out by CIA], of w’hich fact where we made more aware? Would we speak out against it if we all knew about it? In other words, are our thoughts, opinions, and loyalties being managed for the benefit of a select few? Jeff Cohen, executive director of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, has commented, “You can question in the mainstream media whether mining the harbors of Nicaragua was OK, whether doing the (CIA’s) assassination manual was OK, but you never question whether our goal is to bring democracy to Nicaragua.” Why not?
Fully-frontal skull itary”
by Andrew Bornyi Imprint staff It was a dark and stormy night... If it would have been, it would have been the ideal setting for Front 242’s high energy performance. Performing in Toronto for the second time in two years, they filled the Diamond (poor choice of venue) easily with the usual alternative clubbing crowd dressed in black leather, black hair dye and pastel black. Front 242, a Belgian product, formed c&a 1982, is probably the best-known (i.e. commercial) New Beat group. The three members, Patrick Codenys, Jean-Luc de Meyer and Richard Prosthess, have been misunderstood image-wise and musicwise. Image A (Music Mags): Front 242 is a paramilitaristic group, which makes Laibach sound like the Vienna Boys’ Choir. Their incessant, violent pounding puts Nitzer Ebb to shame, invoking images of a wasteland ruled by mechanized tribes. Their name, derived from UN. Resolution 242, is only surpassed by album names of No Comment, Official Vereion and Front by Front, for predicting the aggressive electco-beat. Taking off where Cabaret Voltaire dared not tread, they step into an apocalyptic wasteland, where their surreal, music hypnotizes all those it comes in contact with. Clad in black leather with closely cropped hair, even Rambo, Chuck Norris and Oliver North would shy away from the 242 trio.

UZ),. One could very easily say that. the crowd was lacking in wildness, especially given 242’s “mil-

According to the sheet, there was still one more sorig to be done, possibly as an encore, when Front 242 exited. I wasn’t the only one to see it because the crowd refused to dissipate until the lights were rudely thrown on (like Club Fed). Front 242 gave a basic, raw show, unhampered by mutilated animals, blood, disco lights or videos; by far the best concert I have seen in years,

Indiana Jones: back to theeaa by David Thomson Imprint staff
For the latest and supposedly last escapade of Indiana Jones, we are given yet another movie thick on action aind thin on intelligent plot, Usually movies like these are thoroughly predictable, and Last Crusade is nq exception. Sean Connery plays Indiana’s father, who has devoted his life to the quest ‘for the Holy Grail (The Monty Python version was better). Apparently Jones the elder’s relentless obsession with this sacred relic caused Indiana to become alienated from his father, and the writers try unsuccessfully to drag some type of
father-son emotion out of this situation. Indiana’s father disappears in Venice while searching for the Grail, and Indiana naturally has to rescue him. From this point there is the wholesale on, slaughter of Nazis, the usual assortment of carnivorous animals, and that traditional evasion I _

One exception is an airplane scene that is reminiscent of the older J#ames Bond flicks, with a poorly done matte screen “‘4 effect.. 8To sum up, if you can stand nearly two solid hours of action, combined with a predictable plot that insults your intelligence, this movie is for you. After all, as Ryan might say, six dollars isn’t much in a world where our very existence counts for so little.
Bruce Cockburn: He. isn’t normal! l
by Dave Lawson Imprint staff Someone said he had been practicing on the lawn outside Kitchener’s Centre in the Square on the afternoon of his May 24 concert. What can one say about Bruce Cockburn? He was radiant as ever: no, more. In his mid-forties’ his boyish charm is evidence of a once smoulderingly angry artist’s newly-acquired refusal to take himself seriously. The new trend was most evident in his only cover tune: a piece of musical mischief from Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Always look on the bright side of life drew perhaps more applause than any other single number. From ‘the first tune, he sustained ‘a focused mellowness for an unbearably long time. We’re talking groove here as opposed to speed, where mellowness is often taken to mean “slow-tempoed”. But Cockburn held the mood even through his searing political rockers-and mellowness usually isn’t part of his repertoire. The phenomenon was so odd that I was sure either Bruce or I was on pain-killers. ! wasn’t. Which is evidence of the artist’s ability to ride the wave of whatever headspace that’s &her blessing or afflicting him at a given time. No contest that the audience was blessed (this reviewer included). But it’s hard to say what was afflicting either the sound man or the masterful Stick player, Fergus Marsh. While drummer Michael Sloski’s licks were reliable and often delectable’ Fergie Marsh seemed caught in a troublesome loop of bad sound mixing, a consequent inab+lity to hear himself, and a less-than-delightful rendering of tunes from Big Circumstance that quite depend upon his full input. Marsh can make his ten-stringed “Stick” sound like a bass,
guitar and keyboards all at once, But Wednesday night, Fergie seemed literally half-there: only the bottom end was ever fully audible and the MIDI’d piano and beefy organ sounds were lost in a sea of some sound-man’s ineptitude. Ineptitude that-at the other extreme-led to physical pain

ARTS But there’s more! Even a casual shows that the guitarbass-drums lineup is king in indie Australia, as evidenced by bands like Violet Town, Crash Politics, and Souls in Isolation. Yet also noteworthy are the personalized touches: peppy horns and jagged violin here, anthemlike piano chords and weirdo percussion there. And they’re pleasant,, eminently listenable songs all. Some bands do stand out, though. Martha’s Vineyard is an acoustic guitar and percussionbased band with a girl singer whose voice is every bit as insinuating as that of Margo Timmins. A!f Hail the New Right by the Trilobites features the album’s second great chorus (after Hindsight). And the most playful cut on the record is Who’s Gerald?% Pins and Needles, with its sprightly bassline and semistoned-sounding vocalist reciting classic rock ‘n’ roll nonsense like Bop-bop-shoo-op. Granted, it’s most likely that none of these bands will ever become famous. But Young Blood is still fine evidence that there’s more to Australian rock than InXS and Midnight Oil. But then, if you don’t know that by now, 1 guess you should be reading something other than Imprint Arts.

So what’s the ‘hippest record label Down Under? Before the cries of “Flying Nun! Flying Nun!” fill the air, you might want to give a Jisten to Young Blood. This is a various-artists compilation from rooArt Records, a small Australian label with a big heart and good intentions. Any label dedicated to “sustaining the qualities inherent in all truly independent labels” deserves a round of applause. “But what about the tunes?” you ask peevishly. Well, most of the music on this album admittedly owes a clear debt to the godparents of Australian indie rock (Chills, Verlaines, Clean, Go-Betweensj.

Kill fo.r acCeDtance -
by John Zachariah Imprint staff
From Rebel Without A Cause to fl;ay Anything, cool-outsiderguy-meetsbeautiful-sensitiveprincess movies have always smacked of sexism, moral simplemindedness and a knee-jerk reverence of rebellion as the route to freedom. The exhilarating new Heathers takes all these faults to task with such panache and aplomb, one soon forgets it’s being performed by a cast of second bananas and almost complete unknowns. Sure, you might remember Christian Slater from The Name Of The Rose or Gleaming The Cube; Winnona Ryder is barely recognizable from her second-string role in Beetlejuice. But until now, neither had acquitted theknselves as mature performers. Heathers signals the emergence of both as notable talents. The title refers to a high-school clique of three beautiful girls, all named Heather. Each one is a cold social climber (their idea of a laugh is to forge love notes from muscle-bound jocks and put them on the lunch trays of ugly, fat girls) and, as the movie opens, they are @‘rooming a fourth girl, Veronica (Ryder), ,to join their ranks. Suck
ragged exterior I Veronica is sensitive and intelligent but, like many people her age, craves acceptance by a group of sanctioned trendies. However, her rites of passage eventually become unacmptably humiliating and she lets loose a homicidal rant in her diary. To her rescue comes Jason Dean (Slater], JD to his friends, whose laid-back, off-the-wall cool offers Veronica a way out of her self-made trap. Before she
knowsit, though, she’s mixed up in some sleazy multiple slayings and in an increasingly hostile relationship with her JD. Faced with hostility, jealousy and uncaring from almost everyone close to her, Veronica nonetheless extricates herself admirably, molting an old, ragged exterior in favour of a brash, self-assured new one. Slater, given the difficult role of a cool rebel gone sour, is stellar, drawing mirth and delivering menace with equal ease. His
recent description as ;in embryonic Jack Nicholson is not far from the mark. But it is Ryder who is most deserving of praise+ She shames critic’s darlings like Uma Thurman with a performance that, at the least, warrants an Oscar for best actress. Her Veronica is painfully human, but a heroine nonetheless; aside from being a scathing black comedy (and many other things), Heathers is an eloquent declaration of feminist intent, a resounding rejection of the Hollywood-reinforced cliche that the man will always make it right. What Veronica discovers is that it’s her job to make it right. Heathers shuns manipulafive, feel-good romantic resolutions just as Veronica shuns apparently easy routes to selfrespect. Taken at face value, the movie appears to be exceptionally amoral. But the character of JD (James Dean? Juvenile Delinquent?) serves a dual function, as Veronica’s hot new man who turns into a loose cannon, and as a metaphor for her need to establish a distinct identity, to find herself (excuse the term]. Fortunately, her caol head prevails: “I want cool guys like you out of my life!“, she screams at JD, rejecting fhe man and the metaphor in one fell swoop+ while asserting a new identity of her own. Heothers is a milestone in the teen movie genre, providing a genuinely useful and intelligent message for young people in a hip, timely and often devastatingly funny manner. It is also, by any measure, brilliant.

Warrior basketball diary
by Rich Nichol Imprint staff The 1988-89 Waterloobasketbd Warriors had their work cut out for them when they started their seuson in the fall of 1988. With the loss of &Canadian Rob Froese, star point guard Jerry Nolfi, and “tower of power” Jamie McNeilJ, many cynics believed the subpar team would no longer be Q threat in the OUAA West division. But somehow head coach DonMcCrae silenced the critics once again, building another powerhouse squad that folIowed the same path as the previous year’s squad, and earning the OUAA Coach of the Year Award in the process. Plagued by injuries and inexperience, the Warriors started off slow, stumbling to an 8-6 preseason record at the end of November. Yet, with the new year there came a winning attitude. Here is how the regular season ond the playoffs turned out. January 4 versus Guelph: In the season debut, Waterloo had more trouble than usual disposing ,of Guelph. The disorganized Gryphons obtained two 6'8" first-year powerhouse forwards (Tim Mau and Eric Hammond) that would season in the next few weeks. The Warriors staved off a second half rally to post a 65-54 win, despite shooting a pitiful 46 per cent from the field.
“It wasn’t a gem, it was a good competitive win,” commented McCrae, “As far as an art form, this game was in the comic books.” High scorers for Waterloo were Tom Schneider, Dave Rosebush, and Chris Troyak, netting 25, 13, and 12 points respectively. January 7 at Windsor: UW raised their record to Z-O with a 110-73 lambasting of the Lancers in Windsor. Five Warriors scored in double figures as Waterloo shot an amazing 70 per cent from the floor. Newly acquired 6'7" Brock transfer Ron Braley led the attack for Waterloo with 20 points on a flawless ten for ten night from the field. “We broke all of Windsor’s presses and turned it into a layup drill,” said an enthusiastic McCrae after the game. “A lot of people scored well, and we handled the breakdown game really well.”
Tagged as fhe biggest match-up of rivals in the OUAA West, Western thumped the younger hometown Waterloo squad, 8874, increasing their unblemished record to 3-0, while the Warriors fell to 2-l. Before a large crowd of Waterloo faithful, the Mustangs jumped out to a seemingly insurmountable lead of 36-18, However, Waterloo didn’t give up, taking the lead, 52-51, part way
through the second stanza. Then Western, led by sophomore sensation John Stiefelmeyer, stormed ahead with 14 unanswered points to turn the nail-biter into a cakewalk. Stiefelmeyer netted 31 points, 25 in the second half, to lead the Western offense, while Waterloo captain Schneider canned 26 points in a tireless 38-minute performance. Both are headed for all-Canadian allstar status at their current pace. January 14 at Guelph: Although it was only the fourth game of the season for both teams, this gem had the makings of a playoff match. Let’s pick it up late in the second half. Waterloo erased a 12 point Guelph lead and, after an exchange of free throws, UW had the edge W-90 with 16 seconds remaining. Guelph stormed up the court for a jumper but Troyak swatted the ball ,away and, unfortunately, out of bounds. With nine seconds left, overanxious Warrior John Clark accidentally touched the ball before it could be thrown in from the sidelines, The result was a technical foul, which Mau buried to force the game into overtime. In the extra frame, the Gryphons pumped in five of ni,ne points from the charity stripe and Waterloo’s only reply was a Schneider jumper. The final score was 100-93.
January Z&21 versus Lakehead:

The tundra-trodding Nor’Westers were a new edition to the OUAA West this year because of expan6ion. Waterloo put their worrisome 2-2 record behind them as they casually disposed of Lakehead in the weekend doubleheader, 84-78 and 91-65. Unlike past games, Schneider did not dominate the scoring stats. Sophomore swingman Don Meace canned a career-high 21 points in the second game while grabbing 11 rebounds. Defensive specialist Troyak sank 10 and 19 points in the two weekend games. Like many basketball enthusiasts from the West division, McCrae did not know too much about the playing style of his new opponents. “They play with no fear, they always attack,” formulated McCrae. “The a-pointer is the strength of our game,” said Lakehead coach Bruno Colavecchia. “When you’re on, you’re in the game, but when you’re off, you’re right out of it,” January 25 at Brock: Waterloo narrowly escaped disaster in a horribly played contest, edging Brock 66-62. Although the Warriors led the entire way, a 38-27 half-time bulge was nullified as WateJoo nearly became the cellar-dwelling Badgers’ first victim of the season. “A ghastly interior game,” was McCrae’s explanation after Waterloo’s mediocre performance. Veteran shooting guard Schneider paced the Warrior attack with 23 points, while Troyak pitched in 16 points. UW managed to out-rebound the Badgers, 43-33, &spite their problems under the glass. Wa-

Teammates Meace and Troyak shared some of the limelight, scoring 13 points each (six-foreight from the floor)..Bradley and rookie sensation Andy Zienchuk followed closely behind with 12 points apiece. “This was the best game we’ve played this year,” beamed McCrae. “This was our best 40 minutes-we’ve been able to play this well but only for a couple of minutes. Today we dominated all phases of the game.” February 1 at Laurier: After thrashing a first-place team just four days before, the sporadic Warriors needed a waning-seconds basket to nick the fifth place Golden Hawks, 67-66,

But Schneider’s performance was overshadowed by the play of teammate Clark, who shined at both ends of the hardwood, earning the TV game star recognition. Clark rejected many a Mac offering in the Waterloo paint, and almost single-handedly shut down the Marauder offense in the second half. His career high performance was capped off with only a few minutes left in the game, when he walked through the Mac defense and dunked a one-handed jam into the

Clark led the Waterloo scoring, draining 16 points, while rising stars Meace and Braley were silenced to nine and six points respectively. “Waterloo’s been one of the Cadillacs of the league for years,” commented Guelph coach Tim Darling. “It’s nice for an upcoming BMW like us to win.” Darling didn’t need to throw one of his usual sideline temper tantrums tonight I Later the next day, Guelph would fall to the Western Mustangs in a heartbreaker final, 7% 68.
