Ret$rcl i ng woes by Marc Reppin Imprint staff A recent contest sponsored by the Engineering Society challenged engineering students to design a device that can separate steel cans from aluminum on&, and then crush them. The contest is just the latest example of how students are becoming more active in their promotion of recycling on campus. Civil Engineering student Cynthia Smart is largely responsible for her society’s growing activism. As the recycling director, she arranged her faculty’s recent purchase of three polyethylene containers to hold newspaper; tin and glass, She is presently planning a fine paper drive for the end of this term. Smart was also the organizer of the design contest, a contest she hopes will do more than just promote .a greater awareness of recycling among students, “We will take all the ideas, build a prototype and have it in one of our engineering buildings,” she says. While some students are working through their societies‘, others are acting on their own. Fourth year environmental studies

dent Daniel Ponech set up a recycling program in South 7 this month, In just three weeks the house collected nearly 200 Ibs. of newspapef, fine paper, glass and steel, which Ponech sold to a local recycleI’. “~‘was tired of waiting for administration answers for a pro,blem that was essentially otir DWtl-,” says Ponech, explaining

his decision to start recycling in South 7, “I don’t see why students should have to have it done for them. They should do it themselves.” Smart and Ponedh are among a growing number of students who have become impatient with the university’s perceived inability or unwillingness to implement tin extensive’, campuswide recycling programme, and are therefore initiating their own small-scale recycling efforts or expanding existing ones. In February 1988, the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group began campus-wide recycling, without -assistance from the university, That effort was abruptly halted last November when Plant Operations informed WPIRG that Laidlaw Waste Systems Ltd:, the company holding the waste disposal contract with UW, was interested in recycling. In early January Rudy Molinary of Plant Operations told Imprint that Laidlaw and the university were in the process of choosing options for recycling goods throughout t.lie campus and residences. Six months later the status of the project remains unclear. Plait Operations could not be reached for comment. Laidlaw declined to discuss the matter. Currently thb university recycles fine paper only. The rest of its potentially recyclable waste - over 110 tons a year - is dumped at local landfill sites. The Federation of Students favours a blue box program’, similar to the one in place in the city of Waterloo. According to Fran Wdowczyk, Vice-Presider&’ ‘[University Affairs), the city has

alreadv made known that it is tiilling to bay a third of the cost. The Federation would like to split the remaining two thirds with the university. *‘That is our goal,” says Wdowczyk. “We think it’s an excellent idea” she adds, however, -that “it’s just not- coking together yet because of the contracting. It’s a shame when the city is willing to kick in the money and we can’t take advantage of i,t .” The Federation plans to keep recycling on the administration’s agenda by raising the issue at forthcoming student-administration meetings, The Public Issues Board intends to present high profile speakers to discuss recycling on campus, The Federation will also encourage village dons to start recycling waste on their floors. While some of the church colleges recycle, the university-administered residences do not. The residences are major waste producers. Ponech estimated Village 1 alone goes through close to a ton of newspapers annually. For him recycling is long overdue. “It simply’ has to be w done.” Dr. H.R.N. Eydt of Housing Administration supports recycIing on campus. “We are all waiting for Plant Operations on what is to be done.” Once Plant . Operations gives the go ahead, “we’ll begin immehe says, diately.” Few, howevet, expect an extensive university-administered recycling programme soon. In the meantime, small initiatives by studerits and concerned staff members will have to suffice.

The KW Canada Day Council decided this week that balloons are more than just a lot of hot air - or helium’, as is the case. The reason? There’s rubber in them thare balloons. Environmental concerns have grounded the 40,000 red and white balloons, scheduled to be released during the opening ceremonies of the Canada Day events held on campus July 1. The cancellation follows on the‘heels of Parliament Hill’s cancellation’, *which was encouraged by environmentalists like Deborah Tobin. Tobiri, who works with the Halifax-based Briar Island Ocean Study group, wrote tci the federal minister of the environment, “In addit on to littering, they do in fact kill marine animals, sea turtleti, and 7 migratory waterfowl.” To till told Canada Day chairperson Shane Carmichael that many animals are likely to eat the spent balloons. When giant sea turtles find lnem in th- watef, they presume they are jellyfish and eat them, ‘which can impair their eating or breathing. “Thf: ocean-going ma:nmals are doomed either way,” she said. @per .he past t> 10 weeks‘, the Federation of Students has received rnFdJy cumpla,nt 9bout the balloon release. Parents, teachers, and o?ner concerned citizens expressed the view that the balloon release was an example of deliberate littering which posed a serious threat to animals, Public relations chairperson Terry Playford said some public schools were unwilling to fill out balloon tags labelled with childrens’ names and addresses to send up with the balloons. Last y‘ear one balloon tag made its way back to KW froni France. This year’s tags will be used for ‘a draw instead. Carmichael felt some people, especially childreti, would be disappointed the balloon release has been cancqikd, as in its past three years, it has been “a good public celatiom event. . . those balloans have carried KW Canada Day flags e all over the contiy. “We shouldn’t just cancel it, and have itime kids disappointed, some environmentalists happy, and (the council) without an opening ceremony event .‘* As an alternative‘, they are planning a “balloon burst.” Everyone at the opening ceremonies will receive a balloon fillkd with air, rather than helium, and the crowd will all break the balloons together. After that, they will be encouraged to throw the balloons in the garbage cans provided. Canada Day visitors will also be invited to sign two large cards which will declare the balloon release was cancelled out of concern for the environment, and thank others for caring as well. The cards will be sent to the federal minister of the environment and the Briar Island Ocean Study group. Playford said she was “glad the decision went through to cancel the release,” but was sorry the council did not have more time “to come up with an alternative event.”

Chinese students meet in Winnips

Park-vous by Andrea Szego Imprint staff UW students can now benefit from courses in a number of disciplines - taught in French. And they can even travel to France to do it. Among courses offered in French are history, philosoph3/, and Canadian studies. With the new prograti, undergraduates can earn one of two “certificats d’etudes en langue francaise” from UW. The certificat programs are under the auspices of the Interdisciplinary Program Board and are funded by UW as well as the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities. Students can select courses from an approved list maintained by the Advisory Board of the Programmes d’et udes en francaise. Two certificat levels are offered: four term courses with a 85 per cent averagd, or seven term courses with a 65 per cent average. * Students must pass a French Proficiency teit prior to being awarded the certificat at graduation. Arrangements can be made to study for one year at the Universite de Paris (France) while earning UW credits. Thanks to efforts made by Ruth Parker of the Department of Cooperative Educatioti; UW became the first Canadian university to join the Interuniversity Mission’ for the Coordination ‘of Franco-American Exchanges. MICEFA, as it is known in French, was created in 1984 to promote cultural, scientific, technological and indus-

Ftancais? trial cooperation between France and the United States. This September, the first group of UW students leaves for the year to study and work in Paris - the program is designed for Co-op students. The six students, majoring in areas as diverse as Fi’ench, psychology, political science, and mathematicg, may spend their work terms in French schoold, perhaps tutoring English. Parker believes the students will be eminently”marketable” because they will be fluent in both French and English. MICEFA will help others find work with French, employers when the French universities end for the summer. While in Paris, the students will live in‘ the “Maiscln du Cana&,” the Canadian section of an International Students residence in Paris. Parker, who has toured the facilities, says students can expect to find very comfortable living arrangements. She stresses that the exchange program is not for debutantes. Students must have a strong knowledge of French before appy lying to the program, and when in Paris, will attend an intense three-week course that reviews grammar and explains essay writing and note-taking techniques. For further information about the -program or the certificat, contact Ruth Parkei, Coordinator, Teaching Department of Cooperative Educatibti, at 8651211 ext. 3117, or Dr. Chris Bryant, Director’, Programmes d’etudes en langue francaise, at ext. 3610.

Several new courses will be offered in the coming fall term for students interested in learning about the culture and languages of the Pacific Rim countries. Renison college will be offering courses in East Asian Culture as well as Japanese language, and plans for a course in Chinese language are underway. Dr.

Peter

Swati,

who

will

be

teaching the culture course, says that the course will cover the history, geography and artistic achievements of China, Korea, and Japan. The course will cover a great deal of material, dealing with the region’s culture from ‘earliest times to the end of the 19th century, and will be offered for the first time this September. Also starting in the fall term will be a series of five courses teaching the Japanese language’, which is “not like French or German’,“. according to Dr. Swan,

‘This makes it a “difficult thing to learn’,” he said. Courses in the Chinese language have not received senate approval, but hopefully a series of courses similar to those in Japanese w.ill begin in January. ’ Also new this fall is a course in Croatian culture’, similar to Russian and German culture courses, and intermediate level Croatian language courses. First-year Croatian was already offered last year’, with the new courses intended to extend them, u

COMMENT

Canada Dai cheer --

w Over the past few months, I have seen the KW Canada Day Council at work, preparing for the huge celebration held on campus July 1. In five years, the day has grown from a small, quickly-organized event to one in which many students, staff, and local sponsors are involved. Imprint itself is one of those sponsors. With a large council comes differing opinions and politicking. The council has had its share of problems, The chairman’s departure for Ottawa early in May, and communication mix-ups between council members have created some confusion. But on the whole, Saturday’s celebrations look like they will be a roaring success. Volunteers burdened with arranging for 8,000 daytime campus visitors and 50,000 nighttime visitors to enjoy themselves have really come through. Canadians have received some bad press lately. A recent Decima research poll taken by Maclean’s magazine’, as reported in The Globe and Mail, found Americans describe us as friendly, nice, and wonderful, while we labelled them snobs, pig-headed and obnoxious. Yeti, we did also call them good and friendly. But 25 per cent of Canadian respondents were quick to say they disliked the Americans’ “superior attitude.” “By contrast,” the Globe reported, “most Americans could not think of a nasty thing to say about Canadians.” ’ Funny - in the July issue of Saturday Night magazine, Andrew Coyne faults Canadians for just such statements; he says we sing a “swelling-hymn of self-Jove” to prove we are “better” than Americans. Coyne writes, “Other nations are too proud, but only the Canadians are so vain as to think themselves too modest.” But volunteer-run organizations such as the Canada Day Council restore my faith in Canadians. The cot&i1 has worked tirelessly to make. KW Canada Day the success it surely will be - and mosf have been modest about it. :* If lyou are visiting us for the day, on behalf of the; whole campus I would like to welcome you and hope you will enjoy your stay. Watch the parade, burst a balloori, sing along with the bands, paint a tlshirt, try your hand at Imprint’s Canadian Trivia Contest, and ooo and ahhh at the fireworks. Canadians do have a lot to celebrate.

Work

report

To the editor, The new $14 work report marking fee that every co-op student has to pay is a total farce, and 1 can prove it. At the end of last summer I wrote my fourth and final work report. Having completed my work report requirements, I was quite angry when I saw this new fee on my fee statement for this summer, The Department of Cooperative Education and Career Services wanted me to pay $14. for services for which I had no need. SO, in protest, I decided to submit a work-report anyway to get my 14 dollar’s worth. In doing sd, 1 was able to show that the marking services the students are paying for are totally inadequate. . The work report I submitted

1Is Bruce a

fee farce

this summer is an exact copy of the work report I submitted at the end of last summer’, with the folfowing two exceptions: first, I made a slight change in the cover letter to indicate that I had submitted this work report before; second, I added a final page titled “Concluding Remarks” in which I protested the $14 marking fee and freely admitted that thi9 was a “repeat” work report. I never expected my work report to be marked. However, after picking it up last week from the Math undergrad office, I discovered, for the following two reasons, how much of a rip-off the $14 marking fee is: I] Not only was my work report marked in full, but the marker did not even notice that it was a repeated work report. Since this point was made clear in the concluding remarks it is obvious that the marker did not

read

all of my work report, the exact same work report I received two totally different grades on the two occasions in which it was submitted. Last year I received an “Excellent” grade and my work-report was up for an award. This year the same report dropped two grade levels to merely a “Good”. In both cases’, my Computer Science work report was marked by non-faculty members of the English department. Clearly, they are not qualified markers in any case, In fairness to all students, I expect an abolishment of the $14 work report marking fee, and a return to the policy of Math faculty professors marking the work reDorts of Math students within their departments.

To the editor,

To the editor: I am an avid reader of Imprint. I noted with interest your article some issues back on the completion of Waterloo’s Oxford English Dictionary computerization project. Your revieti of acclaimed Canadian songster Bruce Cockburn’s recent Kitchener performance also caught my attention. These two articles were linked for me wheti, while perusing Dana Porter’s new (hard] ZO-volume copy of the Oxford English Diet ionary, I spotted a word which characterized exactly my opinion of your Cockburn review: that word is “pumpkinification” (definition: e.xtravagant or absurdly uncritical glorification].

This is in response to the column “The Voice of Treason” which appeared in the June 16 edition of Imprint. The writer of this column -has made a few statements which seem to show he knows as little of fundamental Christianity as he knows about evolution. First, any person who has honestly studied evolution and creation would realize that belief in macro-evolutiia, with its conspicuous absence of fossil records tying on species to another (ie: a fossil ‘rn its’ intermediary “evolving” form] requires as much faith as creation. But on to the main point. The writer also stated that fundamental Christianity promotes “aggressive anti-intellecwhich further tual beliefs*’ seems to indicate he, has failed to do sQme basic research. Unfortunately too many people identify fun&mental Christianity with the lunatic fringe that grabs all fhe headlines and feel at liberty

to make sweeping ,statements about fundamentalism without investigating what mainstream fundamental Christianity teaches. *Fundamental Christianity first and foremost teaches that everyone needs a personal relationship with ]esus Christ and this relationship should be evidenced in every believer’s life. Man in his pride has developed many theories and philosophies without recognition of God. Millions of people have studied these and have found them to be empty and hollow. The same have turned to God, by faith received His Son‘, and have experienced real joy and peace thereafter, Fundamentalism teaches this message and further teaches the principles taught in the Bible without apology even though many times they conflict with modern man’s philosophies and standards. Why is a rejection of man’s philosophies and acceptance of God’s Word as it was written “anti-intellectual”? Consider the following from Colossians 2:2,3: “My purpose is that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Chris& in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”. Seeking a deeper knowledge of God is the highest form of intellectual pursuit and it is encouraging to see that the university has not barred this endeavour. D. VanderSchee, C. CaIef 4A Mech Eng

/D~ITIOWX~ “best we’ve To the editor, K. Barrett, in a June 16letter to the editor, noted that a 21 year old Chinese student who informed China’s 84 year old leader, “You don’t really get the point !“, reminded him of a cartoon. In this cartoon a recent graduate who, upon completing his or her degree, was instructed, by the world, to sit down and learn the rest of the alphabet. Barrett made the tenuous comparison on the basis that, “Too many university students these days are idealistic youngsters who would tear down all existing institutions overnight, but, unfortunately, lack the experience and maturity to replace them with anything better.” I am not sure what era K. Barrett was raised iti, but in so far as jI have been told, university stuidents have always been idealistic. Idealistic, I submit, with good reason. Idealists strive to tear down existing institutions because so much about those institutions is bad. Rampant corruption and lack of citizen participation in the institution of Chinese government, for example, is a good reason why it should be changed and why student idealists attempted to do so, In another example, the repressive‘, savage nature of McCarthyism and the injustice -of a war the United States had no business fighting, was a good reason for idealistic students of the 1960s to shake up that nation’s institutions. The problem is not idealistic students who want to tear down, but entrenched, power hungry people who call themselves *‘realists” and want to maintain control for their means.

Those people-know damn well their systems are flawed and that change is a greater reality than they will ever know. A great many reform problems would disappear if those within the system would lend some of their “experience and maturity” to young reformers who will make changes anyway. Barrett went on to discuss the dubious merits of democracy as revealed in Scripture. “It (democracy) has proveri,” according to Barrett, “to be the weakest form of government devised in the human experiment,” The connection with the rest of ‘the letter is not stated, but it would seem the implication is that democracy is not something to strive for since it is so easily twisted and inherently unstable, as indicated by the equating of democracy to clay in the Old Testament passage Barrett refers to, Winston Churchill agreed. He called democracy the worst system for achieving decision and action. None the less, he struggled to insure its survival, calling it, “the best we’ve got.” Democracy is so fragile because it attempts to do the most to protect individual freedom. If order and stability is what one craves, then’, obviously, there are systems and institutions which do a much better job at providing this. In short, idealistic students striving for greater democracy are not nearly as misguided as Barrett seems to indicate. Sometimes they are wrong in the way they bring about change, but they are not often wrong for wanting change. Daniel Ponech 4th year Environmentai Studies

OEAR SEXPERT: I usually have sex with my partner about 1once a week. My friend was telling me that he has it once a day. Am I missing out on something? ANSWER: Not necessarily - once a week is fine as long as you and your partner are satisfied with that. The ideal frequency would be whatever you both agree on. Statistics are available for the average frequency of sexual intercourse but there is no point in mentioning them here. As your question implied, there is great variability among couples in how often they have sex. Some couples are content with once a month while others are not satisfied by anything less than once a day. If you are happy with your sex lives, there is no reason to.be concerned with what other couples are doing. However, if either you or your partner is not satisfied with the frequency of seti’, it is important to discuss this. Quite often one partner’s sex drive is much stronger than the other’s, Remember that intercourse is not the only way to satisfy sexual urges. You should consider alternatives such as masturbation’, massage and cuddling. Sometimes a person% interest in sex can be affected by problems within or outside of the relationship. This is difficult to change unless the underlying problems are resolved. After a couple has been together for some time it is nor@al for the frequency of sex to decline. There is no problem with [his as long as you are happy with the other aspects of the relationship. One final thing to consider is that you don’t need to settld into a routine and expect sex’to happen on a consistent basis. Thereare many factors that can increase or decrease sexual desirq (i.e. be stresg, weathef, movies - you name it) and there will likely variability in whatever frequency you consider ideal.

Focus on Feminism by Michelle

Blab

The imposition of the North American Beauty ideal, main:ained and promoted by the ma.e-stream mass media, serves as 1 consistent reminder to women If their inherent physical unac:eptebility. Rather than quesioning the validity of the standard, women have learned o blame ourselves for our inability to “measure” up. The )reoccupation women have with letting’ and remaining thin conrols our activities, robs us of our Bride and self-confidence and Irevents us from occupying the ipace that we require. a By continually bombarding women with a masculine creaion of reality which equates hinness and youth with beauty, lappinesd, love and wealth and my making correspondence to his male image the most necesary and highly acclaimed ource of women’s acceptability ,nd valuation’, the patriarchy las succeeded in creating a deepeated feminine fear of fat which xtends beyond age, race and lass barriers.

Don’t

that constant vigilance in thg face of food and the self-loathing which results when women satisfy their appetites are overi forms of female control exer. cised by the “fathers” of society to their own economic and pat= riarchal benefit. Vivian Mayer Aldebarati, a fat activist, has suggested that “mass starvation of women is the modern American culture’s equivalent of foot-binding, lipstretching and other forms of female mutilation’,” fundamental to the maintenance of women’s inferior h’uman status. If we are to be leaders in the freedom of women from the shackles which bind us to this patriarchal fallacy, feminists clearly must reexamine the impact of weight on the lives of wometi, particularly from a fat perspective. Through the exorcism from fear and negativity of fatness feminists can begin to radically re-form a positive concept of feminine body image that is consistent with women’s diversity. Through the abandonment of the oppressive patriarchal standard of female beauty and an embracing of a woman-centered acceptance of all female bodies+, women can begin to support, with convictioti, every woman’s right to be fat.

The next time you pick up a bunch of luscious Californian grape& think of The Wrczth of Grapes. While the title of John Steinbeck’s novel is The Grapes of Wrath, the “Wrath of Grapes” is the slogan of the current California grape boycott, which refers to the hazards associated with the pesticides used on the grapes. California grape growers know the appearance of grapes is important to consumers. Those plump, innocent-looking grapes have been pumped up by growth hormones that make them grow three to four times their normal size; howevef, this alters the organic composition of grapes, thus weakening the natural resistance grapes have to pests. As a result, grape growers have had to increase the amount of pesticides they use. Since the 19405, the amount of pesticides sprayed on grapes has increased l&-fold. Last yeaI’, eight billion pounds of pesticides were used on the grapes grown in California, and approximately one-third of these pesticides are proven or suspected carcinogens, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency. The type of pesticides used on grapes are organophosphates, carbamates, and thiophosphates, all of which are considered nerve-gas type pesticides. The most danger&s pesticides are Captan, Methly Bromide’, Dinoseb, Parathion’, and Phosdrin, Parathion and Phosdrin are responsible for the majority of farm, worker poisonings and deaths in California. Captan is a widely used fungicide and most often found by the US proven carcinogen - it is the pesticide Food and Drug Administration in their monitoring of grapes for residues. There are three officially recognized child cancer clusters in California. One of the three clusters is McFarland, a town surrounded by pesticide-laden fields in California’s San Joaquin Valley. In McFarland, the rate of cancer among children is 600 per cent higher than normal. The State of California and Kern County have been forced to look at the possible causes of these clusters, but as yet, have been reluctant to link the incidence of cancer to pesticide usage. Adults in McFarland are also facing an increased incidence of cancer’, specifically head and neck cancers. What makes this cancer particularity noticeable is the rapid growth of the tumors. These tumors can grow from the size of a pea to the size of a nectarine in weeks. The state of California is reluctant to include a review of adult cancer cases with its review of child cancer cluster% arguing that it is difficult to trace possible environmental factors with adult cancer. The reluctance by the state to deal with the dangers that farm workers face is not surprising. Under the leadership of Cesar Chavez, the United Farm Workers have organized the predominantly Chicano farm workers. There are now less than 25,000

workers under contract, though 208,000 have voted to have the UFW represent them. The UFW has been successful in securing safer working conditions for the farm workers. These achievements tire currently under seige. In 1983, George Deukmejian was elected Governor of California with strong financial and political support of the growers. Since his election, he and his administration have sought to dismantle the few rights the UFW have fought so hard to secure. The people who work in the grape fields are now involved in one of the most critical battles of their lives, They are fighting to reduce the use of pesticides which not only threaten their health as workers but also threaten the lives of their families and friends who live in the same communities where they work. It is not only the farm workers, their families and friends who may be at risk. The increased use of carcinogenic pesticides also places consumers at risk. Not all of these pesticides can be washed off the grapes; some chemicals are oil based and coat the surface of the grape’, and others seep through the porous grape skin to the inside. Because of the potential hazards to consumer& the UFW is looking for support from the public to end this dangerous use of pesticides. The present boycott on Californian grapes was officially declared on July 11, 1984. During the following two years, Cesar Chavez and other UFW organizers toured the US and Canada developing support for the campaign.,. “The reasons for this boycott are similar to previous boyco& except thaf this time one of our problems has become a tragedy: an incredible epidemic of our workers are dying from cancer; child-ren are being born with birth defects; women are having miscarriages due to the use of nerve-gas-like pesticides used on grapes,” said David Martinez, VP of the UFW. Martinez is working in Canada to build Canadian support for the boycott. “The same pesticides which cause death and deformities among farm workers and their children are being eaten every day by Canadian consumers’,” Martinez said. In Iuly 1988, the UFW sampled grapes in 66 stores in Metro Toronto. The screenings for organophosphatti, caramate and thiophosphate pesticides showed positive in 60 stores. Of the 72 samples taken at each of these stores’, 86 per cent of the grapes tested positive for the existence of these pesticides. While not enough research has been done of the long-term health effects of consuming pesticide residues, Martinez states: “Don’t wait for body counts! We’re already providing them, Our children are already dying, Don’t wait till Canadian consumers are contracting cancer too.” The grape boycott has been effective,in the past, and the current boycott is beginning to have an impact of grape prices. In specific markets, the effect of the boycott has been significant. In Bostofi, grape sales were down 12 per cent from last yeaf, and Chicago, 20 per cent. According to Martine& “all we need is a 10 per cent reduction in sales to make. the boycott effective, and our preliminary reports are that there has been a 10 per cent reduction in shipping. We don’t think the grqwers can go another year. If the consumers will stick with US, they won’t last another year.” YOU can support the California grape boycott in several ways. The easiest is to stop buying them and tell your grocer about your concerns. WPlRG student working group that is taking this boy: cott to local stores.

Women Inventors by Karen

Brooks

Although the Canadian Patent Office issues only one per cent of its patents to wometi, there are countless women inventors waiting in the wings to up that ratio - if a recent display is any indicator. The genius of Inventing Women was on display at the Kitchener Public Library from June 5 to 30. The inventions of twenty-six women were exhibited - more than half of them Canadian. Women 41s Technologicoll Inventors displayed inventions such as “Landmarc” 7” a device used to m‘ark the sppt for chest compression when doing CPR c and a computer aid for disab!ed persons. invented by. Women for Women exhibited “Hot Heels”, a heel protectof, and “MaternaMate”, a support device for pregnant women. Invmtions for Everyone displayed the popular game Balderdash, Liquid Paper, and drip coffee. Inventions for Children displayed the Jolly Jumper and Knifty Knees - a device especially useful to hemophiliacs, where a scraped knee can mean the difference between life and death.

The Women Inventors Project, a non-profit organizatiari, was started in 1986. Its co-ordinators are Shelley Beauchamp, PhD graduate of the University of Waterloo and Technology Consultant with the Canadiaq Industrial Innovation Centre, and Lisa Avedori, M,A. graduate and Adult Educator with the Ontario Ministry of Labour. ‘Shelley Beauchamp says the Project aims to ‘*raise the profile of women inventors, to provide information to women who want to invent, and to inform students and teachers about the Project.” Focus, a newsletter written by the Women Inventors Project, provides information and advice to ivbmen inventors.. Women inventors today face financial and social barriers. Beauchamp has received letters from women who want inforrpation about the Women Inventors Project, but do not want it sent to their home, afraid that their husbands may see it. They have been held back by a lack of money, information‘, recognition and support networks. “InventorS,” Beauchamp says, “are all motivated to invent in order to solve a problem; how-. ever’, the needs of women differ from those of meti, so they invent in order to satisfy those needs.”

What is cholesterol? Cholesterol is a waxy fat-like substance found among the fat cells in the bloodstream’, which are called lipids. There are two basic categories: high density lipoprotein (HDL] and low density lipoprotein (LSL). HDL is thought to pick up cholesterol from the cells and the arterv walls, taking it to the liver for removal from the body. LSL seems to promote the deposit of cholesterol on artery walls, an excess of which can restrict blood flow through the arteries, resulting possibly in a heart attack. What causes high cholesterol levels? The majority of people have a normal ievel. Even in most diagnosed cases of a high cholesterol level, it has not been attributed primarily to eating foods containing high levels of cholesterol. The single most important factor in high cholesterol levels is heredity. Eighty per cent of cholesterol in your body is processed there; only the remaining 20 per cent is influenced by diet. What is the biological junction of cho/esterol? Cholesterol is found in every living cell in your body, and it serves many necessary functions: it helps produce hormones, it is required to produce vitamin II, it helps in the construction of

cell membranes, and it is essential for the production of digestive juices. Saturated fats tend to raise the amount of cholesterol in your blood. They are found primarily in animal fats and coconut or palm oil. Saturated fats can also be produced fromdunsaturated fats through a chemical process called hydrogenation. What pm I do to contruI my cholesterol level? Good health always includes a healthy diet. Eat a wide variety of foods, including fibre rich on-es, Limit your calorie intake and restrict saturated fats to be only a third of your calorie intake. Regular exercise - 30 minutes of action three times a week - and sensible weight control will not only help control you’r cholesterol level, but will also decrease your chances of heart, disease and cancer. Cholesterol is only one of the leading factors contributing to heart disease. It is recommesded that a cholesterol level test be done at’the aie-of twenty and every five years after that. If your family has a history of heart disease, you should have a regular check up every three years. And should you have a high cholesterol level, you can, together with your doctor, work out a diet plan best suited to your needs.

Gosh, golly, gee! Have you seen those mead, nasty books? You know, the ones people are burning, like The Merchant of Venice and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Books like those ones upset many people. It is not very nice when they use naughty words that offend minorities like Jews and Negroes (even though it was the way they talked back then.) I suppose all books that are not nice should not be read; they should be burned too. Fur&y thing though, they never ban books which give my minority a bad name. You never hear anyone defend the rights of white trash, do you? We should all be equal, right? We should not offend anyone, right? We should all give in to self-righteous groups that have the literary insight of a pea’, right? That’s why we have to protect white trash, especially the males of the species. After all, we have feelings too. In Hamlet all the white, male characters are quife offensive to me. The title character is a schizophrenic, spineless jelly fish who sees and talks to ghosts,

murders a girl’s father without remorse and then drives her to insanity-and suicide. Her father, Pqloniug, is a boring old fart that, in some perverse. way, seems to deserve his violent end. His sari, !Laertes, is an arrogant, undeserving son who jumps in his own sister’s grave just to start a fight. Gee& what a hot head, Havlet’s uncle/stepfather is an obvious nasty, killing his brother to sleep with his sisterin-law and become king. But this blatant attack on white men is crystallized in the pair of idiots Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. With all these derogatQry and inflammatory men‘, any worthy white, nnale characters have been obscured and forgotten. Anyone who has read this play would re,alize the terrible indignities dealt my minority, In my crusade against blatant and unrestricted rationality, I hope to succeed. Against the proponents of intellectualism I I6will strive to achieve victory.

The recent claim by Ponst and Fleischman - that cold fusion had been achieve’d under the most mundane of .conditions - was interesting, not just because it was made by chemists [rather than physicists) but because it held the shadowy promise of almost unlimited energy for all, thus heralding some new golden epoch. The process, they said, produced more energy than it consumed, thus seemingly violating the second law of thermodynamics., which states that when matter is converted from one form to another, a net energy loss must result. If Pons and Fleischman were correct, then all of science would be fundamentally changed. Reading about the two chemistg, I was reminded of Joe Newman‘, who caused a great stir a few years back with his electric motor, the output of which, he claimed, was much greater than its input. What all three men were laying claim to wag, in fact, perpetual motion.

Garabed Giragossian’s perpetual motion machine, developed in’ 1917. Fearing he would be rejected by the U.S. Patent office, he took his case directly to the United States gov-ernment, who promptly launched a full-scale investigation. They found that the unschooled and scientifically ignorant Garabed had “discovered” a giant flywheel. But one of the most recent, and in &any ways most inter-. esting, perpetual motion claims has been made by the aforementioned Joe Newmad, who says his device is not a perpetual motion machine, though it does violate the first law. Newman’s machine is an electric motor that, with an incredibly small input, produces an. extraordinary amount of electrical energy. When Newman was denied a patent for his device in 1982, he sued the Patent and Trademark Office, claiming that hiti machine was operable ,and deserved a patent. It was sent to the National Bureau of Standards for testing, but Newman claims they did not test his motor properly. The ensuing trial seemed to sway in Newman’s favour, though a decision has not yet been handed down. Newman is a self-taught inventor who claims that his electric motor draws energy from the gyroscopic movement of subatomic particles, . the existence of which only he is aware. The idea does sound whacky, and there are inconsistencies in his .cIaimS, but some respected scientists are Newman converts, ifieluding Roger Hasting& a physicist who works at Unisys in St. Paul. Other researchers have denied Newman’s claims, saying that his motor is less efficient than a convent&x4 electric motor. Newman‘, though, remains convinced he is right, and is rather hostile toward those who believe he is a cheat or a charlatan. No perpetual motion device that has been invented has ever worked. The history of perpetual motion is a history of frustratiou, a long and complex Fortean tragedy which has generated much trivia, but no triumph. In recent times, though the quest for perpetual motion seems to have abated considerably, largely because of the constraints of the first and second laws, but also because internal combustion and nuclear power have consideral * bly reduced the need for self-motive or energy producing machinery. Yet for some reason, people like Joe Newman still try, and there is a chance they may be . right.

Bat stuff by Andrew Rehage Imprint staff Through the passage of time, Batman has become the stuff of urban lore. Originally created in 1939 by Bob Kane, the character started out as a dark and slightly tormented crime fighter. Giving into pressures to reduce violence in comic books during the fifties, the character became more light hearted, In ,1966, ABC Television gave us a pansy Adam West as Batman. The campy series was far from what Bob Kane had originally created, but by that time’, was the height of Batman’s popularity. While at times irritating, the series gained a cult following during the 80s. Frank Miller brou he darker side of Ba

Nothing is certain in this world. Just when I’d all but completely given up on Robyn Hitchcock and his Egyptians (following their last two rather lame LPs, Globe of Frogs and Queen Elvis), they turned in a thoroughly spectacular show at the Diamond in Toronto. That Thursday show was one of the very few ct3zwwtsI’ve ever seen that actually left me wanting to hear more. Now here I am’, a Hitchcock believer all over again. First, to give credit where it’s due, Poi Dog Pondering did a wonderful job of warming up the crowd, Poi Dog Pondering is a seven-piece, eclectic (mandoliti, fiddle, horns, accordioti, xylophone, and spinning globe were among the instruments trotted out) Texas outfit. They’ve just signed a major-label deal with Columbia and are sure to go places. But the night belonged to; Hitchcock in every way. Strolling onstage through a telephone booth (a la the Queen Elvis sleeve), he broke into .a solo rendition of The DeviI’s Coachman. Soon afterwards, he was joined by the Egyptians, Andy Metcalfe and Morris Windsor. Throughout the evening, these three musicians consistently surprised us with the depth of their musical talent, especially bassist Metcalfe. They played a few’of the highlights from the Queen Elvis LPFreeze, Veins of the Queen, Swirling, Superman-and happily, they all sounded better, more forceful than the lacklustre studio versions.

unrecognizable. Of course, everything they did they did rig’ t, including favorites such as $ PIitical and Drinking Song. Unfortunately, there were technical problems with a guitar pick-up, but this only gave tlhe ‘other musicians an opportunity to keep the tune going, partioularly with an extended solo frdm the flutist. The flute is worked so well into the music by this bavd that you forget it’s not every band that strays from convehtional instrumentation. The mandolin fits perfectly too, and the overall effect is a full sound of acoustic power that few bands can come close to. They also had the guts not to do Frozen North for an encore, after a standing ovation’, even though the audience wanted to hear it. They opted instead for the more serious Take it from the Source. Being able to combine the serious message songs with the frivolous fun tunes in the same show is an ability that makes Spirit of the West one of the most “live” bands around. 1 only hope they don’t get too big for small shows.

They said they would be back, and they didn’t let the crowd down. Returning a few months after their show in the Bombshelter, Spirit of the West was well-received once again. They managed to create a happy, energetic atmosphere, even though there were far more people at the bandstand in Waterloo Park than would ever fit in the ‘Shelter’, and the sun’s heat was enough to dampen any cookedr up ‘energy. They did lots of familiar mate+ rial, plus a new song or two. The highlight of the show was Putting Up With The Joneses, a song about the institutionalization of mentally handicapped individuals. Many of their songs have lyrics about such social issues, but this one works as well as any. Plus they haven’t recorded it yet, so it’s nice to hear it when you can. They also chose to perform Run Boy - reworked for a reported fifth time. They finally got it right, making it less negative-sounding without making it

by Trevor Blair Imprint staff During World War II, Axis and Allies alike experimented with sound technology in hope of discovering a way to harness the shattering din of the battlefields.. Not content with merely deafening a few hundred soldiers, tacticians wanted to employ ‘every component of an explOsioti, as until that time sound was regarded largely as a waste product. It was from these very experiments that TC/80 was born; but I am getting ahead of myself. While some fools were working on great big bombs, others iaboured over a tool of far greater consequence than any explosive. The popular argument went something like this: Whitecoat No. One: “If we create a really big bomb, we can really blow things up.” Whitecoat No. Two: “Of course we don’t want to blow up every body.” No. One: “Oh, right, yeah we’ll want to have some left over.” No. Two: “The real question is what do we do with the leftovers?” The war ended with the really big bombs getting all the attentioti, while behind the scenes men of power were deciding what to do with the leftovers.

Many generals’ reported the uncanny depcndencti their men developed for archaic combat rhythms. The now mighty Wyndham Hill had its humble origins in developing a series of “Battlezone Environments” recordings for discharged soldiers - to keep ‘em in the trenches-at home. This series fhatured, amongst others: Incessant Guns, The Neverending Explosion, Relentless Impact, Cries of An- I guish-Cries of Pajti, and, their hottest seller Music+ From Dying Bodies. The Wyndham logo (a Q-tip with little grenades on both ends], was scrapped in ’ the sixties for what it is today. Sedation technology developed into “Rock and Roll,” and by setting a goofy “rebellious” stage, the men were able to ensure an endless supply of dolts to play the parts - you’ve seen them all: rebellious, friendly, crotch-grabbing, sensitive and artistic and so on. Time marched on. The eighties arrived, and as the veneer of religion began to fade... a nation strung out on rock ‘n’ roll left the masses_ - that’s you - under control. With each musical “movement” spearheaded by the “right” people at the right time’, an enfire generation wag, ultimately able to soothe itself out of existence. But man had to pay a price. The home replaced the concentration camp, the bed, with its jagged borders, replaced the battlefield, Psychic barbed wire and camouflage tore at the confused families; us’ became them and then us again. Boundaries were drawn that none could see, and negotiation became unbearable. Per.haps I am in danger for telling you this but the truth must be known. I’ve been keeping track of the new bands, especially after the punk thing (circa late 70s). I have watched as the facade of music television crept into qur homed, intoxicating and addicting us to a lifestyle we never asked for, nor could ever

refuse. I thought I could find sanctuary in the visions of Huxley but after New Model Army’s Brave New World EP hit my desk back in ‘85, not only did I realize my hunch was right, but I also knew that they were on to me and they were toying with me. I’ve been, shall we say, between places ever since. Right, a week later the file TC/80 arrived from an anohymous sympathize-r. It outlined this band as being the top priority “thing”: a band, a culmination of the sound project, a final experiment with a ten year incubation period. So as the 90s begin to creep from behind multinational skylines, listen for the vanguard of the endless army’s footsteps wading through the twilight of the nuclear era.

The worst thing about it was that the pauses between songs were too short, like by abbut an hour or so. And what in #God’s green goober does Corpus Vile mean? Vile corpse? Redundant, don’tcha think?

Australian folk singer Judy Small recently came out with her fourth album, Home Front. Those familiar with her anti-war songs Mothers, Daughters, Wives and Bridget Evans will not be disappointed with the political message that_ inspires almost every track. Her carefully written lyrics remind us of the atrocities we would rather forget: the cultural genocide of Native people, the aftermath of the Vietnam War and the constarit threat of Nuclear Holocaust, Those. intimidated by such heavy subjects can find comfort in such gently sung ballads as The Sky of the Southern Cross and Ivy Says. Although Small writes memorable lyrics, she lets herself be constrained by the English folk tradition which she knows so well. Consequently, Small’s melodies are familiar and predictable. This creates a sense of comfort t-hat, in some songs, edges on boring. Home Front benefits from an interesting mix of traditional, accoustic and electric intruments played by talented musicians.

Well, they are kind of an anal compulsive band -rarely does a song go by without a healthy “Eat shit!” or some such extraneous yelping, No matter, The really interesting thing is that for once the press release isn’t lying through its teeth: they term Guilt Parade as “the best hard-core band in Toronto’* and, gosh darn it, they are. Mind you, that’s like saying you’re the best rock-climber in Kansas, but still. The reason they are so good isn’t so much their playing, which is average, but their sense of self-depracating humour and ability to hake each song distinctive, whicli is a real trick when you play something as restrictive as hardyore. But they do. The stand-out tracks are t eir goth ten-minute-plus versio b of Heartbreak Hotel that takes bn Wagnerian pro port ions, and the previously released [on an It Came From Canada compilation) track Ode to an Asshols, a shockabilly song about country dickheads. SO, unless you happen to be a country dickhead, it’s worth spinning around your table. But stay away from the Corpus Vile rot. That’s isn’t music, it’s sarcasm.

Li’mits of ^refirlement by Lyn Imprint

McGinnis staff

The Stratford ‘Festival is becoming increasingly well known for its productions of other great authors besides Shakespeare. At the top of such alist must be the works of one of Russia’s greatest playwrightti, Anton Chekhov. Over the years the Festival has staged truly memorable productions of Chekhov’s work. In 1976, when Artistic Director John Hirsch directed the Three Sisters, Chekhov’s second last play, the cast included internationally acclaimed actress Maggie Smith. Now the present Artistic Director, John Neville, has brought this fascinating and moving tale to life again. The result will perhaps be seen as one of the highlights of the season. The plot-of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, is decept?vely simple. The Prozorov$, three’ ‘sisters and a brothe?,’ live together in a town somewhere in Russia. The play begins one rear after their fat he?, General Prozorov, has died, He had been sent to the distant province from their beloved Moscow with his family of highly educated and sophisticated children eleven ye&rs before. NOW, a year. after his death, the three sisters, Irina, Masha and Olga, ranging in age from early to late twenties’, long to return. It becomes clear this is both an idealization of their past and an inability to deal with the present. Gradually, both circumstance and temperament conspire against the realization of not only where they shall live, but the directions their lives will take.’ The three women haire an ex-. aggerated esteem for their brother Andrey, whom they continually embarrass in front of company. They hope to ride his coat tails to Moscow, but they are disappointed. Andrey, feeling a great weight lifted from him with the death of. his powerful father, deflates into a smaller figure than expected.

Instead of becoming a University professor, he enters local politics, marries ’ an obnoxious local woman and acquires huge gambling debts, leading to eventual loss of the house. Yet through this great frustration and tragedy‘runs an undercurrent of warm and gentle humour. The human condition is looked at both closely and with compassion. The mystery of our often-stumbling progress through life is keenly felt by both the characters and audience. Though dealt many emotional - .biowS, the sisters remain, in3 the

with making responsible decisions. -Three Sisters is a-comment on the Russian society-of the time, tw.enty years before the revolution. The upper classes are the hybrid breed having increasing difficulty existing in the open air. The youngest sistef, Irina observes: “We come of people who despise work.” Inherent in such “noble” disdain is fear. The Prozorov children are the final flower of a society with a submerged fear of life itself. Thisresults in the indolence, frustration and abstract

play are burdened with. Perhaps the ultimate observation of this play is that refinement has its limits, This production brings Chekb hov’s masterpiece to life. The acting is both strong and hensitive. Lucy Peacock’s portrayal of Masha Prozorov is especially memorable, given the complexity of that character. The costuming and set easily transport the audience into provi&al Russia ninety years ago. Of special note was the incredi-bly large and beautiful hanging curtain of lace which served as a graceful backdrop to the entire Play Chekhov often referred to the Three Sisters as “a light comedy.” Perhaps this “comedy’: is best described as irony - the irony of human expectations and their conflicts with life itself. The play continues at the. Avon Theatre in Stratford until August 20,

effort

Titus Andronicus moves so quickly that the viqlence seems almost unreal. The play commences with bloodshed, and systematically purges itself of all unfortunate and evil characters until there is a only handful of actors left on the stage. The death toll may be unrealistic, but compared with the recent crisis in China, the violent momentum of stage clearly has

its roots in the real world. Ironically, this play is costumed in the ancient Oriental tradition. The parallel is almost too close for comfort S The worldly weight and consequence of Titus Andronicus is dispelled after intermission by The Comedy of Errors, which matches the levels of, revenge, mutilation and high tragedy with a calculated sense of comic timing, wit and. energy. Thti actors literally run from one scene to the next. Even during the scene changes the rhythm is never broken. The clock at the top of the set guards the time both within the movement of the play, and during the business between the scenes. Although the two plays have nothing obvious in commoti, the concepts behind the production are what bind the plays together. The tragedy in Titus is not experienced by one character but by many, and in each character there is something tb identify with as an audience. The ‘Comedy of Errors is so dependent on the pattern and order of events that each character influences the outcome.

i

densely patterned I If one thread of similarity could be passed from one play to the other, it would be that the events that happen in this world are not brought about by single and simple unrelated actions and motives, but are the result of a’ densely patterned ‘fabric of consequences woven behind them. The strength of the concept behind the direction of this production makes it a daring theatrical success. At last some careful consideration is being taken to illuminate Shakespeare’s works with a contemporary sense and relevance.

BEWARE

“Good for what ails ya!” -DR. DISC

-

The tragedy/comedy double bill Titus Andronicus ,and Comedy of Errors is a successful start to what will hopefully be a new age of directing at the Stratford Festival. For once the actors outshone their costumes with performances that held modernday meaning while containing the expected traditional grace. Tit us Andronicus and Comedy of Errors are suspected to be Shakespeare’s first tragedy and comedy, and are considered in scholarly circles to adhere strictly to their respective classical forms. Directors Jeanette Lambermont and Richard Monette have severely cut [at Stratford it is called. “adaptation”) the scripts down to approximately an hour and half each. What is left is the skin and bones of two very intense, complicated and different plots. I The actors as a group must work to make sense of all the action on stage so that the meaning of the play is not lost to the pace of the production. For that reason no cast member can be singled out as the star, or the character around which the action revolves. it is very much an ensemble effort, which is wel,come on the Festival Stage.

an ensemble

While anyone seeing this play will come away with the keen memory of three women thwarted in their various aspirations, there is a great deal more to the Three Sisters. A warm and generous feast for the imagination and <the heart, Three Sisters is full of deep and earnest musings about the nature of human existence, and the aspirations and sufferings of trying to live a good Iife. A major impediment to fulfillment for most of the characters is a general malaise, taking the form of a dangerous lack of energy and imagination. Why is this the case? The sisters are very much the product of a very specialized environment. Once taken out of it, they are like fish cast up on land, or some exotic hybrid plant, taken from its greenhouse and planted in vegetable patch. They have no skills for adapting to and little experience change,

Who review Last Saturday night at The Who concert when Roger Daltry picked up a guitar to strum along with The Who’s cover of I’m a Mart, somebody a few rows behind us yelled out, “C’mon Rage, put the fucking guitar down.” The inference is that the axejob should have been left to Pete Townshend, except Pete’s role was reduced to power strumming an acoustic guitar for more than half the show, due to aging ear drums. Lead guitar was left to Steve Bolton. Smash the guitar, Steve?!? The times they have a-changed, but The Who still rock on. Tawnshend and Daltry bounced onto the stage at the CNE at about 8%) Saturday, June 24, to the strains of the theme from Bonanza. That set

drumming of Keith Moon was missed. Townshend’s solo drummer Simon Phillips was solid, but he couldn’t live up to the maniacal Moon, Pinball Wizard was an early highlight, as Pete wailed on his acoustic; John Entwistle slapped his bass; and Roger twirled his microphone in the classic Who poses, Before going down to the CNE, we checked out The Who’s set at Woodstock, which I had on videotape from a late night broadcast a couple of years ago on PBS For most of the first set, the hazy mist of fantasy versus reality seemed to fog over Exhileration Stadium. In fact, the whole evening had a dream-like quality to it, but it wasn’t until a rousing version of Who Are You? late in the opening set that the overwhelming reality of the event

They played all the classics and then some. How many people know Mary-Anne with the Shakey Hands? The last song they played, like in 1982, was. Twist and Shout!. Last year, before this tour was even a rumour, my ex-roommate told me that The Who would tour again because “how could they end their concert career with a Beatles song ?” Technically, it’s not a Beatles song, I know, but that’s not the point. The point is they did tour again, and ,if my roomm@e’s logic is true, they may just do it again - but don’t count on it!

“Is Manteca a dance band or not?” queried Matt Zimbel, leader of the nine piece band, After a brief explanation of Manteca’s music, Matt decided that, while they are not a dance band, the music is very danceable. Of course, Matt then went on to

But hey, I would rather get thrown out of step occasionally than have to listen to a two four snare for two hours.

There was no opening act, but Manteca did play Fed Hall for more than an hour and a half on June 16, finishing up the evening shortly after midnight.

The mix on the dance floor was ideal. At times’, the vocals were not loud enough, but, as the vast majority of Manteca’s songs are instrumentals, it really didn’t matter. Pulsing, sweating+ grooving, hot, infectious, enhrgetic are all words that could be used to describe the concert, but the best word is simply fun.

The remarkable turn-asround year by Rich Imprint

the intimidation tactics of the Golden Hawks, After the break, the over-anxious Warriors took a penalty, allowing Laurier to tie the score at three. The nail-biting crowd began to have their doubts until Belgrave clinched the game with another penalty goal. Waterloo 6, Laurier 3, This score stood for the rest of the game.

Hauer

In 3985, the Watkrloo Warriors rugby team captured the OUAA crown on the fieldof the Western Mustangs. Unfortunately, many of the talented members of this championship sqtiad were in their senior year and could not play for the team the following season, The younger and weaker version of the team began a Iong and frustrating rebuilding process in 1986. But efforts deteriorated and in 1987 the Warriors finished the regular season with an embarrassing O-7 record. Consequently, Waterloo was demoted to Division z and, as if that wasn’t enough, veterun head couch Mark Harper stepped down, leaving the reigns to new skipper Brian Quid berg. However, with ,the return of several key veterans and the debut of many talented rookies, the Warriors began what WQS to become one of the greatest comeback years in Waterloo sports history.

1

‘Game 1 - September 17 at Brock: The Warriors knew that the season opener against Brock would be tough because the Badgers, without ‘a co-op system, had most of their strong players return for this season. In the first half, Waterloo’s front row of Jimmy Gloss, Alan Phillips, and Matk Rankin arld second row,of Mao Clayton and Glenn Hauer dominated the set pieces, winning 17 of 21 scrummages and 35 o&.41 lineouts. Former OUAA all:, ,tar Blair Faltoner skooted da.t n on many fast runs but the @rock wingers kept running back$bnd nullified the distance gaine$by Waterloo. As a result, the tea& were deadlocked with donut&at the half, Falconer ran t h$ugh Brock’s fly half and insi&“centre on a great break from the Waterloo

for most of the contest, resulting in a 45-0 qnoihilation of the Redmen. ? Veteran flank&” Falconer‘, speedy prop Gloss, and star flyhalf Kendall mastered the offence both in set pieces and loose play. Waterloo took 51 of 74 scrummages and lineouts in the match. Team captain Kendall led the ruled

But one great chance by the Hawks late in the game almost changed all that as Laurier pulled to .within two yards of a try. Laurier l:ook a stupid penalty for dirty play, and Water100 cleared the ball out of the danger zone for the 6-3 win.

Back to Division 1: In one of the greatest comeback efforts in Waterloo sports history, the rugby 1 Warriors rebounded from a dismal O-7 season in 1987 to finish 7-O in 1988. Imprint

Waterloo scoring atrack with two tries, four converts and three penalty goals for a total of 25 points on the day. One try each by Close, Falconef, scrumhalf Steve Sclater, winger Paul Overbaugh, and fullback Mike Fischer rounded out the scoring for Waterloo. At times, dropped balls by the Warrior backs and confusion on offence erased several scoring chances. Quistberg feels that these errors must be eliminated when UW meets the stronger squads of Tren.t, Toronto, and Laurier, The division standings show Waterloo and Trent in first with 2-O records and Laurier and Toronto right behind at l-1. Game 3 - September 28 versus Leurier: Sporting a much larger forward pack, Laurier felt that they would defeat the Warriors in the Waterloo home debut. . In an exhausting first half of hard hitting actioti, neither team could muster a paint, and the score sheet was blank at the half. Almost halfway into the second stanza, the Warriors capitalized using a lineout play that the forwards had been practising. Phillips got the ball to Clay1011, who left the ball for Falconer to scoop up. As the entire UW back row pealed to the front of the line out, Falconer dodged around the maul and popped the ball over to strum-half Rod Duncan who ran uncontested into the end-goal for the try, The teams exchanged penalty kicks late in the game, and UW managed to hang on’, edging Laurier in a hard fought match, 7-3,

1 versus Game 4 - October Brock: Dirty and unsportsmanlike play were the wrong ingredients needed for Brock to gain revenge for their 4-0 loss at the hands of the Warriors earlier in the season.

Waterloo got fired up early after winger Mark Hogg scored a try and was sucker punched twice by two Badgers. As a result of this fit of stupidity, the Warriors became very aggressive and sought revenge’, never looking b,ack. Closs and Falconer both had excellent games in the forwards with many intimidating tackles. The backs were anchored we11 by Kendall, with strong efforts shown by Duncan‘, centre Rob Veizef, and fly-half stand-in Gerard Gransaull. Closs and Veizer scored one try apiece, and Kendall kick two penalties for an 18-6 win, Waterloo and Trent are still ‘deadlocked atop the Division Two standings, boasting 4-O records. Waterloo has the slight advantage, with a points for versus points against ratio of 73-9, while Trent is 62-34. Both teams meet in their next game which will probably decide who will @ke the division crown and be promoted to Division One, Game 5 - Octeber 8 versus Trent: The Trent forwards were rumoured by scouts to be the dominant players on the team. But it was the Warrior forwards who took over every aspect of forward play: strums, lineouts, ruckg, and mauls, Waterloo took a 6-O lead in the first half on two penalty goals by inside center Belgrave. But the Excalibur knotted the game with two goals of their own, five minutes into the second frame. On the ensuing play, Gloss provided some Warrior motivation yelling, “It’s not penalty kicks that are going to win this game, it’s a try!” Five minutes latef, a grapevine play from Duncan to Hogg to Rankin and finally to Veizer allowed Waterloo to run in for the first try of the game. With less than 20 minutes remaining, a

careless throw by Trent’s panicstricken hooker landed in the hands of Falconer. The veteran Warrior made a beautiful pass to Aussie import, Damien Byrnes, who ran in for an easy try to polish off a well earned 14-6 victory. The Warriors now seem to be the untouchables in Division Two, with a 5-O record, and are raising the eyebrows of the cynics in Division One, Game 6 - October 19 at Laurier: What can I say? Waterloo was absolutely flawlesG+ despite the excessively rough play of the Laurier squad. Kendall picked up the only points of the first half with a penalty goal. At halftime, the Warrior forwards were told to toughen up in order to eliminate

Game 7 - October 22 verws Toronto: With the victory over LaurieP, Waterloo was guaranteed first place in Division Two and a’ playoff spot against McMaster. The Warriors wanted to use this match against Toronto as a playoff warm-up game. UW dominated play in the first half but just could not get info the end-goal for a try. A penalty goal by Kendall gave Waterloo a 3-0 half-time lead. In the second half, the Warriors exploded for 17 points, including three trys by Waterloo backs Overbaugh, Gransaull, and Duncan. For the last try, Duncan took the ball from a maul and quickly jumped over the end-line near the end of the match. Kendall played the Varsity Blues’ swan song by converting one try and kicking another penalty goal. Sporting an unblemished record of 7-0, Waterltio has an excellent chance to beat Division One champs McMast ‘r (with a 6-l record] in the QUA semi-finals. The Warriors fin’shed f the season with 113 pointb for versus only 18 against. Not one of their seven opponents could score a try against UW in league play. All I8 points came from penalty kicks.

D-rug testing in CIAU by Rich Imprint

Nichui staff

Ben’s blunder with steroids in Seoul has created a snowball effect of testing and clean-up efforts to get rid of drug use in Canadian sports. The campaign toward drug-free athletes has now spread into the leagues of amateur football. The executive of the Canadian Amateur Football Association recently announced at its annual general meeting in Banff, Alberta, that they will be adopting no-notice random drug testing for the 51 teams in the CIAU (Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union) and the CJFL [Canadian Junior Football League]. The tests, therefore, will include our very own Waterloo Warriors football team. Testing is estimated to begin in 1990, but the CIAU program could start this coming season if its members can reach an agreement. “I’m sure there are kids out there on steroids,” commented<Bob O’Doherty, executive director of the CAFA. “We’re giving them ample warning that testing is coming and they better get off.” Not mentioned were the consequences of testin,g positive, but it will probably result in immediate and lifetime expulsion from all CIAU sports. In 1987, the CAFA introduced an educational video about the dangers of drug use - particularly steroid use -- in sports.

CIUAA Semi-Finals October 29 at McMaster: It was one of the greatest moments in Warrior rugby history. Never before had a Division Two team beaten a Division One side in playoff competition T until now. Waterloo shocked the favoured Marauders 7-4 and earned the right to host the OLJAA championship. Queen’s, who eliminated York 16-9, will be UW’s opponents as the Golden Gaels will try to defend their two year reign as OUAA champs. Despite th’e low scoring, the pace of the match between Waterloo and Mac was furious. Finally, in the 25th minute, Mark Cohoon put Waterloo on the board with his first try of the season. The rest of the first half was even and Waterloo led 4-0 at the break. Waterloo slowed their pace at the start of the second half and McMaster used it to their advantage resulting in an easy try. The teams were deadlocked at 4, The Warriors raised their intensity level once again and were building for something big. McMast-er could not keep up the blistering pace and a tired Marauder was caught offside, allowing a . penalty kick for . .JVaterloo. Belgrave kicked the40 yarder with wind and put it barely over the crossbar for what proved to be-the last points of the game, The final score was 7-4.

Although there is no national title for interuniversity rugby competition in Canada, you could guarantee that Waterloo would be in the top five of CIAU rankings after this victory over Mac.

OUAA Final November 5 versus Queen’s: The powerful and more experienced Queen’s squad was too much for Waterloo in the mud-drenched OUAA final, The Golden Gaels captured the coveted OUAA championship trophy for the third year in a row with a 20-3 victory. Strong cold winds pushed needle-like rain drops into the faces of both teams, making for a sloppy rugby match. Neither team could capitalize offensively in the first half. Waterloo had a 3-0 lead at the half on a penalty goal by Belgrave. After I!?minutes of even battling, Waterloo was called for a penalty in close. Queen’s took the opportunity to knot the game at three apiece. If only Waterloo could get that raging offense going in the bitter wind. _ In a- tough break, the ball bounced off a Waterloo player on a Warrior kick and landed close to a Queen’s player behind the Waterloo try-line.. The Golden Gaels player touched the ball to put his team ahead 7-3, Five minutes later, Queen’s scored a drop-goal to increase their lead to 10-3. Waterloo tried to make a comeback on a valiant 10 minute ef- . fort. But, a couple of go&line stands and fitie-metre strums _ la-tef, Queen’s scored their first decent ,try. The - score 14-3 _ Queen%.’ . Taking the wind out of the sails of Waterloo, Queen’s scored another try, this one converted, to polish off the witi, 20-3. A very disappointed Warrior squad .clapped the victorious Queen’s side off the field in a heartwarming sportsmanlike gesture. Meanwhile’, the Waterloo fans were applauding for their team, coi’lgratulating them for a fantastic comeback year.

Crew ’ anyone? by Andrew Bornyi Imprint staff The UW Rowing Club got underway last Friday for the spring term. This sport is organized as a club during this term and will be a varsity team in the fall. Equipment used by the club consists of a four-person shell, a coach’s boat and a single’s shell. For training, the four-person shell is used at Conestogo Lake and the singles shell is available . for recreationa use at Columbia Lake. Training is every morning from 5:00 a.m. until 8:OO p.m. (travel time included) with regattas held on most Saturdays. Equipment is shared with the Kitchener-Waterloo Rowing Club, an organization which is an off-shopt from the. UWRC. Funding for the club comes from fundraising, the university, and the members themselves. As there is no OUAA competition in the spring term, theclub’s training goal is the Henley Regatta in Ottawa, held August 9 to 13, which ends the season. Although not lacking in spirit, the club is lacking in bodies. Currently, there are only enough men for a four-man crewi Coach Don McLean is hoping to be able to have more men to make a second crew, and more women to make a crew. Anyone interested should call McLean at x3809 or leave a message at 742-8726.

guide to....

Su.rrimer fitness by Michelle Kennedy ’ Summer’s here! Bathing suit season has arrived. Shorts replace our long skirts and pants; sleeveless tops replace our concealing winter turtlenecks and sweaters. For many, such thoughts send them tearing to the PAC - determined to work aff the extra five or tbn pounds gained during the montbs of winter. For those anxious to rediscover and tone up their evasive muscled, here are some tips: 1. Don’t expect miracles. Realize /those extra pounds that took you six or seven months to accumulate are not going to disappear overnight. To lose exceiss fat and tone those muscles you need to commit yourself to exercising regularly and to pressing on even after your goals are achieved. It’s surprising how fast the results of your efforts will disappear once you stop wotking out. 1.1,.

Are het,: there yet?

Lots of Waterl‘ (fa’ students, faculty and staff turned up for the Kitchener-Waterlo&lO km Classic ruri, held on Sunday, June 18. The rinb road before ending up back where it began tadium,. This year’s run raised proceeds for ChildFind, an organization that helps parents locate missing children.

2, Eat sensibly. Fad diets are not the route to take. You may experience a quick initial weight loss on fad diets but, more often than not, the loss is primarily water loss. Gaining it back (plus more!) is not uncommon when you inevitably return to your old eating habits. 3, Don’t over-do it. A common mistake made when starting a program is the tendency to “go all out” in an in spired, heartfelt effort. If you fall

into this trap, your’ honourable intentions will often result in incapacitation due to extreme muscle soreness and even injuries. It is best to start out at an easy pace, increasing gradually as your muscles-adjust to the new strains you are imposing on them. If this seems slow and boring at first, remember in the long run you will be further ahead for having avoided injuries and muscle soreness. 4. Remember cardiovascular fitness. Remember to include a cardiovascular (aerobic] component in your exercise program. The most important part of any program, cardiovascular exercise not only gets your heart and lungs in shape’, it also burns calories at a high rate - helping you to lose that extra weight, You should be aerobically active three times a week for at least 20 minutes each time. Try to elevate your heart rate and keep it in its target zone during the whole exercise. (This does not include the warm-up and cool-down time.) To determine your heart rate zone: 220 - age x 65% lower limit [of heart beats per minute) 220 - age x upper limit (of heart beats per minute] -’ 5. Weight training: If you want to use weights in your exercise program’, it is im85%

portant to observe some basic rules: 1) Allow a day of rest between each lifting session. If you wish to work out daily, develop’a prod gram that uses different muscle groups on alternate days. 2) Exercise large muscle groups before smaller muscle groups and allow rest time between exercises that work out the same muscle groups. 3) Antagonistic or opposing muscle groups s-hould bq worked one after another. Avoid doing twd exercises in a row for the same muscle group (when starting out). 4) Exhale on the exertion phase of each-exercise and inhale during the relaxation or release phase. 6. Stretching: Stretching should be a part of the warm-up and cobl-down phases of every program. You should stretch all muscle groups, especiall’y those which you will use in your exercise program. All stretches’should be static [no bouncing] and each one should be held for 10-20 seconds. Perform each stretching exercise 3-4 tinies, 7. Have fun.!!! Working out should be enjoyable. For many it is looked upon as a necessary evil, but this does not need to be the case. Find some form of exercise which ou enjoy. Put aside time in whit 3: to do it and maybe even find someone to do it with. Together you . can .look forward to those fabulous results!
