Wrong,

Bradley blew off every story ‘this i-nvestigative. reporter had ever hearid- about u_nderground pathways and mysterious, passages under our campub with -those words. *The only _pedestrian tunnels that..emr, w.re on campus are the ones between the Arts ,build+gs, (Modern. Languae$, Humanitieg, Environmental Studies, and- South -Campus. Hall], and they’re still op-en. Rick Zalagetlas, chief. engineer at Flint Operations, suggested that these -are the only pedestrian tqnqels on campus because of the expense of building and maintaining tunnels. Pedestrian _.ftinne-1s cofineoting all the buildings just wouldnot be,economi’ ca)ly feasible, he said. Security in the tunnels ,may algo caiuse a problem. There are

limited zsecurity - precautions taken in the Arts tunnels (they’re ‘locked around 1O:OO p.m. and opened at 6:00 a.m, by custodial. staff), but-Bradley says UW Police2 is unaware of any past: as-’ saults or-thefts in the pedestrian tunnels. ’ All the mystery and legend of the tunnels is not completely unfounded, however. There we*service tunnels that connect ev.ery building inside Ring Road and-extend t9 Village One and Two. These tunnels connect hydra distribution pipes; some computer relay panels‘, and telephone cables. The tunnels are connected to mechafiical.rooms that have, among ot-her things, the water pumps. far buildings in _, them. j _I This may. explain why you never see a maintenance worker wearing a coat in the winter;- the best way to see where these tunnels are is tb se;e’where,the snow me&s first in the winter.,The service tunnels are quit? warm year round.

Cainpus lore assertg, hotievef, that there are tunnel travellers ationg us. Some report that trap doors in the flo,ors of lecture halls and statrwells that lead ’ straight into the ground are the entry ways tq the, subterranean ma,ze below us. Aside. from the brightly coloured pipeg, ladders and the occasional architectyral drawing, tunnellers say the s&rvice tunnels are really, only “your average industrial basement .” j Although-a: fairly elusive bunch, tu,nnel travellers can appear at t-he most- unexpected times ,and places, so keep your eyes to the ground, indoors. and out. But seriously, readetig, the tunnels are only a myth.

Condoms: your best friend Sarah Clarke Imprint staff by

Free condoms for kids? Not really, but a group of school children showed the greatest interest in the AIDS Awareness booth set up in the Campus Centre. The booth, set up in-an alcove off the Great Hall, was one of the information points set up for AIDS Awareness Day last Thursday. A few students stopped by the booth to try the AIDS quiz and look at pa& phletg, but - with the exception of the group of children - the booth was quiet for most of the day. When asked whether the location of the booth may have been a factor in the lack of interest, Al Wadley, a co-ordinator for the Birth Control Centre said, “It’s possible, but it’s more likely that people feel they know enough about AIDS. In the past we’ve had booths in highly visible locations and people were still reluctant to be seen getting

information on issues related to sex.” In the afternooti, Walter Wilson from the AIDS Committee of Cambridge, Kitchenef, Waterloo and Area (ACCKWA) led a discussion on safe and enjoyable sex with a small group in the Campus Centre. He began by showing a video called Changing the RuIes that emphasized how the existence of AIDS requires people to modify their sexual activities. Only couples who have had no other sexual partners do not need to concern themselves with the possible transmission of HIV. The video included scenes illustratini excuses for not using condoms. One scene showed three females discussing what precautions one woman would use on an upcoming date. The woman said she wouldn’t use any because, “he doesn’t have AIDS, he’s an accountant.” After the video presentation, the participants took part in an exercise in which they rated the HIV transmission risk of various

UW Police are investigating an act of indecent exposure that occurred in Parking Lot ‘72” on the afternoon of Thursday, July 20. Two female UW employees were getting into a car when the suspect exposed himself to them. The suspect is described as a white male, between 23 and 25 ..* years b4d; approximately six feet tall; between 170 and 180 pounds; with wavy blonde hair. He was wearing a navy-blue hooded sweatshirt and see-through pantyhose, so that his private parts were exposed. “There has yet to be a return offence,” said UW Police Sergeant Marshall Gavin. “But I can expect that the person will be back. The only thing is for people to be extra cautious and to report.” Anyone who may have any information on this case should contact the UW Police immediately at 888-4911. In a related story, another suspect who was being investigated for indecent exposure confessed to 15 separate counts of exposing himself in the past year and a half. Howevef, the UW Police only had complaints on file for seven of the offences. Therefore, they were unable to charge the suspect for the other eight, as they had not been reported. Such a case only underscores the importance of reporting any instance of indecent

exposure, Gavin said. The answer

sexual activities. Vaginal intercourse without a condom, anal intercourse, and sharing needles are the highest risk activities. In one exercise, participants were asked if they would change their sexual practices if they knew the person they were sleeping with was HIV positive. The fact that most participants answered “yes” indicated that people are not taking all the precautions against HIV that they could, said Wilson. In spite of the low attendance, Wadley felt there was a positive response from the people who did attend. “The low turnout can likely be attributed both to a lack of publicity and to people’s reluctance to discuss AIDS,” he said. AIDS Awareness Day wrapped up at Fed Hall with an appearance by Captain Condom. A draw was held, in which Tshirts with safe sex logos were given away, while the Captain was giving away condoms. In an exclusive interview with Imprint, Captain Condom explained why he was giving out condoms. He said many people already know a lot about AIDS, and that they should be using condoms. However, people are still hesitant to use condoms, or ask their partners to use them. “Even if people use the condoms for balloons or water balloons, at least they’ll see what they look like, Hopefully we can make people more familiar and comfortable with condoms so that there will be a greater chance of them being used when they are needed,” said the Captain. AIDS Awareness Day was organized by the Public Issues Board of the Federation of Students, the Birth Control Centre and the Health and Safety Resource Network.

COMMENT,

Imprint, Friday, July 28, 1989

MYstew

solved -

-

Over the past few issues, Imprint has received a number of criticisms about one-sided articles we have printed. Most of these pieces appear within our forum pageg, and are not actually articles per se, but column& comment piece$, or letters. The forum pages are aptly named; within them, both our readers and writers express their opinions in a forum for discussion. As they are opinion piece$, they are not expected to be objective, as our news articles are. What follows is a guide to what ap ears in forum, Editorials are unsigned opinion pieces written E y a staff membef, often the editor, that are published as the view of the newspaper as a whole. In order for an editorial to be published, the editorial board (those people listed in the masthead on this page] agrees that the editorial reflects the paper’s opinion as a whole. ’ Last yeal’, we published a number of editorials. Howevel’, with such a diverse staff, it is difficult to publish editorials that truly reflect the opinion of the paper. We have also found readers prefer signed pieces. Therefore we have recently been publishing comment pieces. Comment pieces are signed editorials. The religion piece on this page entitled, “God: a mystery” is a comment piece. Columns are pieces that appear in each issue and address a particular topic. Some are opinion pieces, and some are published more for their information value. Currently we publish the columns The Sexual Enquiref, To Your Health, The Voice of Treasofi, Focus on Feminism, and WPIRG. In order for Imprint 10 publish a column’, we ask that writers bring us five column submissions. We post these in our office for a week, and at the next staff meeting, discuss the column with the writer. Voting staff members (determined by their contributions to the paper) then vote on whethep or not to accept the column for publication, The material that appears in the columns is not dictated by u$, but “sanctioned” by us, so to speak, The opinions expressed in the column are those of the writer’, not the newspaper. We occasionally bring columns in for reviews if we feel they are not fulfilling our expectations, or becoming problematic. ’ I am sure you are all familiar with letters to the editor. Howevef, you may not know that they cannot exceed 400 words without special exception by myself, the editof, that they must be typed, daublespaced, submitted by 6:00 p.m. Monday, and include your name, discipline, and pho_ne number. You can also e-mail us letters (we prefer it!) at imprintwatmath, bring them in on floppy disk$, or type them here in our office, CC MO. Sometimes we are unable- to publish all the letters we receive in a given issue, as is the case this week. Sb, in the future, try and remember, if something on the forum pages gets you going, don’t blame Imprint as a whole - we’re only trying to give people a forum for expression and discussion. If something bothers you, write or come in and see us. Good luck on your exam$, and happy reading! Fleur Macqusan

Column

“blatant

To the editor, Michelle Blais has written but one more literary masterpiece aptly entitled “Abortion and Hysteria” in her July 14 column for Focus on Feminism. The ‘article itself is a blatant piece of paranoid hysteria outlining the masculine drive of the anti-abortion movement. In her article, it is imagined that men are so opposed to abortion because it is women’s most effective protest against male oppression. Let’s first of all talk about a man’s role in the reproductive process (allow me to use the term procreation). Our “assumed” role as you say is a very real one. May I remind you of the fact that a human being in a woman’s womb isgenetically just as much the father’s as the mother’s, First you say pregnancy is an act done by men on wometi, then you go on to imply that men are in no way involved in procreation. This idea is so ridiculous that there should be no need to argue against it. It is obvious you dislike men but at the same time you seem to a have a subtle contempt for women. Your ideas of male domination through female pregnancy undermine women more than they do men. Did you ever consider that many women want to have babies, that it is a joy to have a child and not a disease inflicted by men? Should a woman want to be so

On the other hand, there are many men who genuinely care about women, with none of the powerstarved motives that you believe, and are all too willing to aid women being oppressed by men.

Myself, and many other nice guys, want to see a lot less of both. Try to relax a little, Michelle, there are some men out to get you women but many others are nice guys. An arrogant separatist attitude such as yours is no way to solve problems, and you had better join all people in finding solutions’, because fighting men instead of joining them will only aggravate the situation.

Religidn has always been one of the very basic facts of life, right up there with death, sex and government. It is essentially a conditioning that begins when we are children. Most of us are raised within a specific religion (for me, it was Roman Catholicism) and are trained by our parents t‘o at least nominally conform to that religion. When we are childreri, we rarely question this state of ‘affairs in any sort of intellectual way. Of course, it never really occurs to us not to. As teenagers, however, we rebel against our upbringing in many different ways. One of these‘ almost always takes the form of a rejection of our religious training. This may be simply a rebellion against the restrictions on such things as drinking and premarital sex. It may, howevet, be a more considered rebellion against the very nature of religion. This is the kind of thing that results in atheism and agnosticism. Indeed+ by the time we reach university, religion has become unfashionablb; it is almost considered a sign of intellectual weakness to, be religious. And I do noj exempt myself from this trap. Raised as a Catholic, I am now as lapsed as lapsed can be and regard myself as a firmly committed, diehard agnostic-bordering -on-atheist. Yet for ever.y person like me, there seem to be just as many people who have maintained or else regained - their faith. In recent year$, Imprint has tackled the religious question from a variety of angles. Ail approacheg, howevet, wer,e more or less unsuccessful. None have really come any closer to penetrating the vast mystery that must necessarily surround the existence of a Supreme Being. Two years ago, Imprint ran a dolumn called A Pilgrim’s Perspective. The column was a highly personal account of one pe&dn% struggle _ with [and views on) Christianity. The essential problem of the column was that it was an account of religion related entirely from the inside; it was clearly an attempt by a member of the converted to preach to the unconverted, Because of thi$, there was little objectivism or insight to engage the uninitiated,

Last year, Eric Kuelker produced a column called Evidences of God, which was retitled One Christian Perspective midway ‘through its run. Kuelker introduced the column’s debut installment by lamenting the “intellectual dirty tricks” he felt had been used against Christianity. This is actually a very ‘valid complaint, because any sort of intellectual argument used against religion basically misses the point. That i$, religion is based on faith. It is a faith that excludes matters of logic and intellect. Th,is is not a putdowti, merely a statement of fact. Where Eric Kuelker ran into trouble was in trying to prove things that by definition cannot be proven, The holes in his logic were inevitable, since logic has little place in a discussion of religion,

Dave state

Thomson his ability to with certainty that Satan (and presumably God as well) is an “imaginary being.” Clearly, his “nonexistent till proven existent” assumption is shortsighted. “What grounds do you have for believing some sort of superior being or spirit exists?” he asks. The logical reply is “What grounds do you have for believing He doesn’t?” The point of all this? If thereis one, I believe it’s that religion is a mystery everyone has to wrestle with individ.ually. None of us have either the right of, perhaps more importantlgr, the means to attempt to convince anyone else one way or the other. As for myself, I find that I’m becoming increasingly areligious, and even antireligious, for reasons that are deeply personal. However’, I do not have the arrogance to presume that those with convictions are religious “wrong”, while I am “right”, If anything I envy them% their faith, and I wish that I could find it in myself to share it.

Howevef, perhaps the mast illconsidered analysis of religion to grace Imprint so far appeared in our last issue. Hell, I’m practicallv an atheist. and Dave Thomson’s comment piece offended me on a Purelv intellectual level. I musi ad&, though, I envy

Iranian

reader

writes:

Khomeini’s To the editor, I am writing in response to the death . ..I’ in letter ” Khomeini’s the July 14 issue. Brother Islami writes “his achievments were heroic++ but fails to mention at least one such achievement, So let me elaborate on that. These achievements include: - 10 years of destruction and death caused by the most barbaric and most sensless war in the recent history of mankind+ with a loss of hundreds of thousands of lives and billions of dollars and finally a peace treaty so shameful Khomeini himself said said was like “drinking poison”; - A hostage taking crisis that not only tarnished the image of Iran around the world but cost our people almost $11 billion when Khomeini’s envoy signed the Algiers agreement with the United States; - A $2.5 billion illegal arms purchase from the “Great Satan”+ and numerous arms deals with the “Zionist State”; - More than 100,000 people executed, and more than 300,000 political prisoners.

Need I say more brother Islami? . He continues “when the Shah controlled Iran, a deep sadness pervaded ., .“. Get serious, really. Today Iranians are deprived of their most basic human rights, their daily lives are under the close scrutiny of the regime’s spies and various patrol groups. Being happy is a crime: playing a game of chess or listening to music are sins punishable by flogging. I think people would have been much happier if the “deep sadness’+ of the Shah’s time was still pervading. In the 25 years of the Shah’s rule, numerous schools, universiti&, hospitals, technical institutes, dams, etc. were built. Iran was made into one of the strongest countries in the world both economically and militarily. When he came to power there were 400,000 students in the country and one university. When he left there were 10 million students, of which 200,000 were studying at 18 universities. Now, brother Islami name one school+ one hospital+ one road ‘that was built by your beloved Khomeini. ’

Tell me brother Islami, where is the justice in executing nine year old children? Where is the justice in putting adulterers up to their necks in the ground and stoning them to death? Where is the justice in killing the irmocent? Mr. Islaml, it is the Khomeini’s regime that has repeatedly denied our history and culture. It was this regime that destroyed anything that had the name of a king associated with it and went even as far as trying to destroy the remains of a palace that is more than 2500 years old. It was your regime that burnt the Isfahan University’s library and told people that numerous ancient books were burnt in the blaze but later all those books turned up in European auctions. Brother Islaml, as a real muslim and a true Iranian’, I don’t find any happiness in the death of anybody ‘even if he is the sworn enemy of my country. But at the same time I, like many other Iranians who are proud of their past and their culture, do not feel any sadness and certainly am not overwhelmed by the death of a tyrant.

Condom-mania! I

SEXPERT: My girlfriend is going off the Pill at the end of the month and after that we are . thinking about using condoms. How effective are they? ANSWER: Condoms will give y-00-_-I. the same protection from pregnancy as the Pill if they are. used with contraceptive foam [i.e. Delfen] and are used properly. The proper use of latex condoms starts with storing them and carrying them, Heat or friction can weaken the latex and increase the chance of the condom breaking when you use it. Condoms should be stored in a cool place away are from direct sunlight - glove compartments not a good place. Also avoid putting them in wallets;, pockets close to the b.ody (i.e. pockets of tight jeans) or places where they could be punctured while carrying them, Good places to carry condoms are usually purses, knapsacks and coat pockets. The weakening effect of heat takes place over time and therefore a brief exposure to heat will not seriously reduce the effectiveness of the condom,

When the time comes to use the condom, make sure that fingernails or rings do not tear the condom while removing it from the package. Also, having clean hands would be a good idea because things such as oil-based hand lotions can weaken latex. Place the condom on your penis before any genital contact occurs - pre-ejaculate contain’s enough sperm to get your girlfriend pregnant. Squeeze the tip of the condom while putting it on so that there will be an air pocket for the ejaculate. Once the condom has been placed on the penis, check that ‘there is enough lubrication before engaging in intercourse. Just because a condom is lubricated

tyranny not missed

does

that

there

is enough

lubricant to make intercourse safe and pleasurable for you. If there is insufficient lubricant+ there is a chance that the condom could break due to the greater friction. In additioti, there is a chance that your partner will enjoy intercourse more when there is enough lubricant, Using a condom can be made more pleasurable for yourself if you put a drop of lubricant in the

inside of the tip of the condom before putting it on. This will allow the tip of the condom to move freely over the head of your penis during intercourse. Use only water-based lubricants such as K-Y jelly. Oil-based lubricants such as Vaseline can also cause the latex to weaken.

The condom should be removed immediately after intercourse before you start to lose your erection. Hold on to the base of the condom so that no semen spills out of the condom. Use a new condom each time you have sex. Although the above seems like a lot to remember, it doesn’t take long to become comfortable with condoms. If you haven’t used condoms before, it might be a good idea to practice using them by yourself before you use them with your girlfriend. There is no need for condoms to interrupt your sexual activity - you could insert the foam for your girlfriend and she could put the condom on you. Many couples have-made this a pleasurable part of their foreplay, If you have any more questions about condoms or foam, visit the Birth Control Centre (cc206) or call us at 8854211, ext. 2306. Due to exams and holidays we will be open on a limited basis during August. Our hours will be posted on our door each week. Effective September 1 our name will be the Sexuality Resource Centre. There won’t be any major changes in what we do - the name is being changed to more aticurately describe our current services.

Condemned To the editor,’ After reading Dave Thomson’s comment pieoe “Praise yourself Y not God”, I could not help but be amazed that he was attempting to attack the Christian religion while displaying such an appalling ignorance of its precepts. I do not know Dave personally, but it seems evident from his article that his Christian experience goes no further than childhood Sunday School. The central message of Christianity is not “be good or go to hell.” Rather++ Christians believe that no man can achieve heavy:‘* through his own effort. Bec’ause of this, God sent Jesus Christ to die, allowing a new method of achieving heaven. All who accept this offer are called Christians. Christians are good out of gratittide to God. The minister is not “in touch with God” any more than anyone -else. He is there to teach. Dave’s phrases “sickeningly polite and submissive to everyone”+ and “innocent so-happyto-be-listening -to-the-word -of-God laughs” suggest to me a hostility which has colored his perceptions of the people around him in the Church. I’m sorry-he found his minister boring, but why condemn a religiDn because of one person? The same applies for TV evangelists and fighters of holy wars, I am..a Christian, and after reading about and talking with people from other religions and philosophies, I will still take Christianity any day.

unjustly Am I insecure? I don’t think I am any more than any other person, even an atheist. Am I brainwashed? I guess I’ll never know, Am I at peace with myself? Usually. To Dave Thomson, I recommend the book Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. Reading it, you may get a better idea of what Christianity is all about. I wish you the best of luck in your life.

the editor, I’m writing in regards to the smut that was shown on the video ,screen at Federation Hali on Thursday July 13. A video by REM displaying women’, clothed only from the waist down and jyggling their breasts, was more than inappropriate. This university promotes a non-sexist attitude. We no longer support beauty contests, and do not support fraternities and sororities because the university believes they promote sexism, I am infuriatedby this exploitation of women. If one wants to see this garbage, one can go to some sleazy strip joint to get their jollies. I would appreciate a response from the management of Fed Hall on this issue. Ann Race 3B Math To

Evolution ill-founckd To the editor, I am writing in response to a letter by Matt Charels (July 14 issue). in which he describes creation as a dogma based on intellectual faith, As defined, he said that faith is a belief i‘n something that you *cannot reason on using logical means. Can evolution be considered scientific reality? Evolution, as I shall refer to it, is the theory that the first living organism developed from nonliving matter’, without any intelligent direction. In science, a theory must be demonstrated in the lab and the real world before it is proven as fact, Can we say this about evolution? The theory of evolution was described by Darwin in The Origin of the Species. One hundred years lat,er, WR, Thompsod, then the director of the Commonwealth Institute of Biological Control in Ottawa, wrote this introduction: “As we

know, there is great divergence of opinion among biologists, not only tion

about the causes of evolubut even about the actual

process , . . . It is therefore right and proper to draw the attention of the ndn scientific public to the disagreements about evolution.” Even today, there is a growing dissent among reputable scientists on the theory of evolution. Is it easy to explain how our human bodies were developed through evolution? Take for example our eye. The eye has been perfectly designed to- automatically control its focus, adjust exposure and maintain a dust free lense and can be used by the brain to recognize everyday objects and distinguish one from another in 3D and in full colour. Human vision is far plex than any camera; ter can match it. How that it took technology neer such artificial

It was a dark and stormy afternoon. I could feel the calm before the storm, that’s when she blew into the Grad Club. She was a tall dame with the most amazing blues I’d ever seen, a bundle of trouble looking for a fuse. Am I right or am I right? She told me her sad tale of a local night club, Fed Hall, where, after several drinks she noticed her new jacket missing. The flatfoots were no help so she came to me. Isn’t that always the way with dames? Am I right or am I right? I told her I’d look around, see what I could flesh out of the locals, A wink and a nod later I was out pounding the asphalt. If there were clues to the crime then one of my snitches would know, Am I right or am I not incorrect? My first lead was to check out the local vegetarian dive/The Beet Eaters” gang was lounging around, sipping virgin Mary’s and V-8s. After dancing a two.-fist tango with one I found out they weren’t into aggressive stuff, it just wasn’t their scene. Some of them even wore leather on some occasion. They told me about rising co-op fees. I swung over to Needles to see a man about a jacket. It occurred to me that co-op students were a beady-eyed pack who got off on dough and didn’t care who got in the way, Am I right or am I right? After talking with a couple of stuffed peacocks I figured that none of these whips would be smart enough to pull off a scam this big. It was out of their league and so I went to find out who really had the bats, and who had the balls. The trail of the missing jacket led right to Fed Hall itself. A large poluka out back selling jackets for a saw buck was the big tip-off. I went inside and found the manager in cahoots with the Fed president. It seems the money they were losing because of all the glasses being sto.len from various Federation joints was astronomical. Loonies upon loonies were lost every night. They had to do something so they started this recycling project of their own. The jackets’ resale value would supplement the heavy Losses. -Well, I figured some more and found they had a point. I mean, how many people with stolen jackets have suspicious looking shooter and beer glasses at home? Am I right or am I right?

c,onsidered plausible. Also these amino acids were synthesized in an oxygen free atmosphere.

Can evolution be proven in the lab? In 1953 Stanley Hiller passed an electric spark through a gas mixture of hydrogeti, meammonia‘, and water thane’, vapor. This produced four amino acids that are some of the building blocks for life. However, 20 amino acids are needed for life to exist and scientists have still been unable to produce the other 16 amino acids under conditions

Many scientists dispute this because they claim that without oxygen’, cosmic rays would travel through the atmosphere and wipe our any amino acids formed.

Once upon a time, diapers were a topic of interest only to parents, prospective parents and those directly involved in the industry. If the subject came up outside of those circles, eyes would glaze over. After all, any extended discussion about diapers requires, at the very least, an active and imaginative use of euphemisms. Well, the times they have-a-changed. Diapers have become an issue on which almost everyone has a point of view. In the era of the waste crisis, parents and parents-to-be find no shortage of free advice and opinions from friends and relatives on whether they should use cloth or disposable diapers. Most environmentalists - both those with children and those without - will recommend cloth diapers as the environmentally responsible choice. There are three main options for dealing with the problem of keeping baby dry: disposable diapers, cloth diapers you wash yourself, and cloth diapers from a service.. The disposable diaper - the plastic and paper miracle of the 1960s - is currently the most popular of the three. About 1.7 billion disposables are used in Canada each year, accounting for 85 per cent of the diaper market. They are promoted by extensive and expensive adverfisl ing campaigns and are much touted for their convenience. What’s more, new parents are encouraged by hospitals and often are forced by day care centres to use disposable diapers. Cloth diapers you wash at home are the most traditional choice and the least expensive. Many parents reject this option as being too time consuming, and, let’s face it, not enjoyable. The cloth diaper services, companies that each week deliver clean, folded diapers to your home and pick up those you’ve used, are a parent’s dream, although they are not available in all areas. Diaper services provide the ultimate lowmaintenance diapers, and, compared to disposables, they are about half the price. To some, the diaper debate may seem only a drop in the pail compared to our overall mess of garbage, To others, diapers are a.symbol of the larger problem, People make choices about the environment with the products they purchase. The question of using cloth or of using disposables must be seen to be as much an environmental decision as a decision for convenience. The’case for cloth diapers is not so much an argument for them as an argument against disposables. The cotton industry, for example, has a less than pure track record of pesticide use and of poor labour practices. Cloth diapers must be washed, whether at home or at the diaper service. Their washing consumes water and energy, and may involve the use of bleach and/or detergents that are high in phosphates and additives, Diaper services must get those diapers to and from homes each week. Last but not least, diaper pins have wreaked havoc on countless innocent thumbs and bottoms. In spite of all that, there remains a principle of sound environmental practice that make cloth diapers the preferable choice for parents: the reusable product is better for the environment than the disposable. The principle is based on the hierarchy of environmentally sound waste management options: reduce, reuse and ret cle. The outright disposal of products should on Ky be considered once other options have been exhausted.

faith turing consumer goods strict rules ate kept in its design for optimum quality and nothing is left to chance. Are not living animals of superior design than simple

wehicles?

.

In conclusion, to believe in evolution is an excuse for irresponsibility if we are here from chance, there no real purpose for living except for self gratification. This affects our whole outlook on life. This takes a lot of faith. Cecil

The best way to avoid waste is to reduce the amount of materials we use or consume. obviously, babies are n6t likely to reduce their need for some sort of diaper product. The next choice is reuse: in this case the cloth diaper. Recyclable diapers are unlikely to ever be desirable or possible. Disposable diapers, on the- other hand, are a single-use, wasteful, throwaway product. Perhaps the best way to analize a product’s environmental impact is to take a cradle-tograve approach to look at its) productioti, use and disposal. In all three, disposable diapers present problems. Production: To make those fluffy liners, the dispbsable diaper industry works its way through one billion trees each year worldwide. In Canada’, our forests are being depleted at an alarming rate, with only poor efforts on the part of industry and government to replant and manage logged areas. As a result, until the forestry industry is made more accountable for its actions, the manufacturing of disposable diapers will only encourage continuing deforestation. Once the trees are down, the wood is pulped and then bleached using chlorine to give it that nice bright-white look. The chlorine combines with other chemicals in the pulp to produce toxic chemicals - dioxins and furans and other chlorinated compounds. Such toxins make their way not only into any water or air emissions from the mills, but also into paper products manufactured from the pulp. Use: -The problems with the use of chlorinebleached paper products are now becoming clearer. Dioxing, a result of the bleaching process, can be contained in diapers and could pose a health threat to babies. Dioxins are lipophilic - they love oil and fat. Putting petroleum jelly or anything oily on a baby’s bottom makes it easier for the dioxins to move from the diaper onto the baby’s skin. Once there, some of the dioxins may be absorbed through the skin into fat cells, Disposal: The disposal of these diapers creates other problems. Each year in Canada, about 250,000 tonnes of used disposable diapers end up in the garbage. That amounts to approximately 2.5 per cent of Canada’s residential waste stream. These diapers can only be put in landfills- or incinerated. Right ‘across the country, municipalities are faced w:ith- the problems of landfills - lack of space and lack of confidence in the safety of landfills. While parents and caregivers are, theoretically, supposed to ‘*empty” the diaper faeces before throwing it out, less than five per cent actually do the dirty but honourable deed. There are more than 100 possible viruses that can survive in dirty diapers for up to two weeks. No one knows how much of a problem this might be to groundwater supplies and to the garbage workers who handle the waste. Incineration is also fraught with problems. Concerns about high levels alf dioxins and furans emitted from the stacks or left as ash residue remain unanswered. All in all, the environmental case against disposable diapers is a strong one. As parents look beyond the questions of convenience, more will switch to cloth diapers. YOU can help by talking to new parents about the diaper issue. Encouragie them to use cloth diapers rather than disposables. Give them a copy of this article, or get them in touch with WPIRG, room 123 General Services Complex, 884-9020.

I refer to your Canada day write up concerning the activities of the Society for Creative Anachronism during their demo shows a remarkable lack of intelligence‘, never mind the gaping lack of respect for “journalistic responsibilities.” I quote “The medieval display put on by the (SCA], exhibited medieval duelling techniques. A commentator explained the significance of the duels as they took place, The crowd , . . watched the duel scenes in silence.” My lords and ladies allow me to correct your mistakes: 1) What we do is NOT “duelling.” These are real weapons, and can cause a-great deal of injury to the unprepared or unwary. We do not “duel”, we FIGHT for real. 2) The “commentators” were actually marshals there for the purpose of keeping the fighters from staggering into the crowds. Secondly they were not explaining the “significance of the duels” but commenting on the types of weaponry, the style of movements, and the honorable reactions of the fighters, The fights themselves bore no rele-

They cheered and jeered, applauded, whistled, and above all else, asked all of the questions that your reporters should have asked. 4) The fights were NOT scenes. They were in no way staged. The fighters were often not certain of WHOM they would be fighting until their opponent stepped onto the field;let alone certain as to who would win. When they fought, they h

fought FOR REAL. Those hits were FOR REAL. The exhaustion they felt after four hours of fighting in the sun was FOR REAL, and we thank you for considering the fact the we’, at least, take what we do VERY seriously. My lords and ladies of the Editorship, what you have basically done is misrepresented what the SCA is, Not once were any of my people approached by any of your reporters, and I can only assume that this means that you don’t consider it your responsibility to report facts. _

We were misrepresented and not only does that not impress us, it makes you look bad in a journalistic light. If this is the kind of journalistic responsibility which you are attempting to display to the world, then it isno wonder that Imprint has a reputation for being a “rag”, and unfortunately, whatever readers you may have had in the SCA have no desire to be caught dead with such trash. Perhaps until you learn the true meaning of “journalistic responsibility”, you and yqur staff

Does today’s society have the need for everything from love’, to the soul,, to God, explained away by a scientific periodic table? Religion has been a source of conflict for centuries’, yet it has also offered comfort. I tend to think that human beings have and will continue to be in conflict and that people have used religion to justify their conquests. Using religion in war reflects on the people themselves, not on religion. I think that Mr. Thomson

The late Alden Nowlati, Canadian writer and poet, tells the story of a young boy who signs an unemployment cheque for his father. As the two enter the bank and present the cheque to the teller, they smile at each other; the narrator speaks of the difficulty in discerning who is prouder, the father or the son. Between 20 and 25 per cent of Canadian adults are illiterate, and despite societal demands for a higher level of literacy this number is increasing, according to the Literacy Council of Kitchener-Waterloo. A person who is unable to read and write at a grade five level is considered illiterate, while a functional illiterate is a person who reads and writes below a grade nine level. A recent Southam survey showed that illiteracy drops with education: 53 per cent of Canadians who completed grades five -eight were illiterate, as were 24 per cent of high school dropouts.

by Jud-y HoIlmds Imprint staff Research and development in Canada needs a boost to catch up to other industrialized nations. This not very new conclusion was reached in a strategy document recently released by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Ten Yearrs to 2000: A Stmtegy Document, describes Canada’s ailing performance in the international arena of advanced scientific and engineering research.

The council uses Laubach skill books and teacher’s manuals, which attempt to improve a person’s level of reading to a grade five level. Students and tutors are matched by a placement coordinator, who assesses student goals, needs, and interests. The learners are encouraged to progress at their own pace, without fear or pressure. A wide variety of books and other materials are available at the centre. The program is sponsored by the Ministry of Skills and Development and through donations. Presently there are 130 students and 113 active volunteers. Due for publication is the book Windows, a collection of short stories at various reading levels which was developed by the council. People are welcome to visit or phone the drop-in centre, both for reading lessons and to volunteer to teach reading, It is located at 62 Queen Street South in Kitchenef, and its phone number is 741-0900.

“On arriving in the town . . . the people of Islamabad were fascinated by a new scene in the town’s main square in which they took great delight ,,, a building in the midst of construction provided the scene on which the people’s gaze was fixed. Bodies were hanging from the bare metal girders on the second flooP, looking like motionless pendulums ,,. the three men had been hanged earlier that morning.” This account was published in Iran’s daily Jomhouriy-e Eslami on August 9,1988. The/three men were executed on the charges of betraying their fatherland. Iran is one of the 100 countries world-wide which retains the use of the death penalty. The eighty remaining nations have abolished the death penalty, classifying them as “Abolitionists.” On April 24,1989, Amnesty International began their campaign calling on the 100 government 4, known as “Retentionists”, to end “cold blooded and premeditated” judicial killings world-wide. Execution is a violation of the right to life and the right not to be subjected to cruel, inhumane or degrading punishment. Why then is execution viewed by some as a humane means of punishing those who have committed serious crimeg, when most consider torture inhumane and a violation of human rights? What is the distinction between a woman being hanged by her arm8 until she experiences excruciating pain and a woman being hung by her neck until her spinal cord is severed or she dies of asphyxiation?“If the gun held against a man’s head and the chemical injection used to cause severe pain are considered instruments of torture, what do we call the firearms used by a firing squad or a fatally poisonous injection? Execution is not humane - it is, more often that not, extremely painful and tortuous, Governments use a number of means to execute their criminals, For a person to die from hanging, their spinal cord must be severed due to the gravitational pull on their body. If the calculations for -the length of the rope are incorrect, thb person will either die a painful and elongated death of suffocation or will die from decapitation. Firing squads or single shots are also used td kill. In 1986, the Nigerian Military Governor ordered that those sentenced to death for robbery should be executed by successive volleys of bullets, fired at intervals, starting at the ankles. The United States made progress in capital punishment when they introduced death by electrocution in1888. Powerful electrical surges of up to 2000 volts are applied for brief periods. The desired result is cardiac arrest or respiratory paralysis resulting in death - however, this result does not always occur. In April 1983, in the state of Alabama, Louis ‘Evehs required three separate charges of 1900 volts over 14 minutes before he was’ pronounced dead. Doctors had to ,wait 10 minutes after the first charge be+ fore they could examine Evans his body I was too hot to touch, Eye

witness accounts state that Evan’s eyes bulged out and his lips swelled, turning purple and black, Eighteen US, states use the more “humane” method of execution known as lethal injection. A combination of three drugs -one to cause unconsciousnes$, one to arrest the motion of the lungs,’ and one to cause a cardiac arrest - are used to execute the prisoner, In some cases the chemicals j are injected separately; the first chemical [a saline so-

lution) is slowly dripped intravenously into the bloodstream. The risoner is strapped to a stretc K ex+,and takes as long as ten minutes to die. Death due to asphyxiation caused by cyanide gas is another way to execute a parson, In the state of Mississippi, September 3, 1983, Jimmy Lee suffered from convulsions for eight minutes, gasped for air, and repeatedly bangeld his head against a pole behind him before he died. While beheading and stoning seem to be archaic forms of execution to Westerners, they are used b a number of governments. In Sau B i Arabia, if all goes according to plati, the criminal’s spinal cord is severed by ode swift blow of a sword. Several blows may be required before the criminal is dead. In .regards to death by stoning, Article 19 of the Islamic Penal Code of Iran states, “In the punishment‘of stoning ‘to death, the stones should not be too large so that the person dies by being hit by one or two of them; they sh-ould not be too small that they could not be defined as stones.” A recent execution in Iran had public citizens execute two women in a public square, A witness report. allegedly reads that “two women were lead to a -spot wearing white and with sac&s over their -heads . . .

People camped outside the prison’, carrying placards and chanting, “Kill the bastard!!” as they,awaited the news of his death. People in Iran crowd the streets to share in the excitement as members of revolutionary groups are hanged or stoned to death - some even share in the deed. In some nation& executions are part of the entertajnment at presidential inaugurations. Whether taking place behind closed prison doors or with actual public participatiofi, lawfully condoned killings such as these do affqct the society. ’ Deterrence, qr dissuading others frbm committing the same crime, is a common justification for capital punishment-. Howevef, there is no concrete evidence to support this claim. Indikiduals who commit serious crimes, such as murdef, often do not rationally calculate the consequences of their crime. Most murders are’ committed under intense emotiori, the influence of drugs or alcohol, or by someone who is mentally unstable. A Japanese study from 195547 discovered that of the 145 convicted murderers questioned, none thought that they would be sentenced to death for their crime. A British doctof, after 35 years in the Prison Medical Service, stated, “A high proportion of murderers are so

tensed up at the time of their crime as to be impervious to the consequences to themselves; others . . . persuade themselves that they can get away with it.” If the death penalty is a deterrence, then countries or states which use it should have a lower incident rate of similar extreme crimes - however, this is not so, In 1962, the United Nations received. formal evidence suggesting that the rate of crimes committed which were once punishable by death did not increase( once abolition was in place. Canada became abolitionist in practice in 1976, and in 1985 the homicide rate per IOO,OOO was its lowest in 15 years. Nigeria, who punishes certain crimes by death, has a homicide rate which has been steadily increasing since 1967. If criminals are executed, they will not repeat their crime; howevep, it is impossible for officials to be certain that any one criminal will be a repeat-offender. Courts rely on trained psychiatrists to determine the likelihood of repeating the offense; yet, the American Psychiatric Association admitted in 1982 to the U.S. Supreme Court that predictions are wrong in at least two out of every three cases - even under the best conditions. Economically, execution is not inexpensive for the tax-payer. It costs the state of New York roughly $1.8 million tax-dollars to pay for one capital punishment trial and one appeaLThis amounts to almost two times the cost of imprisoning one person far life. I “An eye- for an eye” is often the argument for capital punishment yet biases and human’ fallibility exist in all legal systems making it impossible to promise retribution. A dead killer will not bring back the dead victim. Studies in execution show disproportionate imposition of death sentences on black defendants. In South Africa, 96 per cent of all those hanged are black. There is not one black judge in South Africa and juries. are all white. No white man has ever been hanged for raping a black woman but 90,black men have been exkcuted-for ra ing white women, In the US:, rl lacks comprise 12 per cent of the populatiob, yet account for 40 per cent of the recorded 2182 prisoners on death row. A recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling now permits states to impose the death penalty on criminals who . are develo men’tally disabled or oti juvenile o r fenders who are tried once they are 18 years of age, Amnesty International esjimates that 40,000 men’, wome&and children have been executed since 1979. Thousands were put to death after unfair, trials, lengthy imprisonment and torture. The crimes punishable by death include murder, rape, defiance of state faith, adultery, prostitution and showing pornography. But the crimes committed are not the issue here. Human rights should not be arbitrarily granted by governments for good behaviour they should be common to all people world-wide. Every human being is protected by the Human Rights Code to ensure that he or she never suffers a violation of human rights o;r the irihumanities imposed by the death penalty.

It’s after midnight, and a lonely Imprint hack sits at his terminal, desperately ‘seeking some gimmick to structure his concert review. The sheer scope of the “Monsters of Folk/Punk Tour” demands something that will capture the assorted highs and lows (theke were lots of both] of the show. Well, let’s see . . . The Pogues called their last go-round the “Straight to Hell Tour”; Violent Femmes have always been just on the losing side of the spiritual-vs-carnal battle, and Mojo Nixon is a downbound fiend if ever there was one. That’s it! Throw in some pretentious allusions to Dante, and we’ve got something here! He claps his hands together’, cackles gleefully, and sets to work,

The First Circle of’Hel1 Mojo Nixon and his ever-silent sidekick Skid Roper take the stage and rip into a frenzied tune called Debbie Gibson is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child. This pretty much sets the tone for the set, which turns out to be better than I ever expected -from Mojo.

The Fifth Circle of Hell Midway through a drawn-out, epic Confessions, the band is joined by th.e Horns of Dilemma:, and things quickly go downhill. Quite bluntly, the Horns of Dilemma suck. Black Girls is kinda fun but sluggish, and Gone Daddy Gone has all the power and perverse chafm sapped out of it, The band apparently now feels the need to draw out and distort every song, so that by the time the tune finishes, the audience is glad to be rid of it.

[SUmmer dreaming) the fairies - particularly ‘l’itania [Lucy Peacock) - but as music, the songs weren’t especially good. They were decidedly sappy at times’, in a sort of shopping-mall-muzak kind of way, But thea, the whole play is written that way. The plot is simplistic enough: couples ‘falling in love and misunderstanding one another’s actions, with the mischievous fairies adding to the fun.

by Derek Hrynyshyn Imprint staff If you need relief from the endof-term pressure, this season’s production of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream at Stratford’s Avon Theatre is just the thing for you. As usual, the acting is beyond crit icisti, with the emotions portrayed so convincingly that the audience can forget the stage: the sets and lighting seem so natural they are barely noticeable. The costumes are excellent and surprisingly eclectic. Shakespeare has been performed in modern dress, punk dress, and just abotit any other style of dress you might imagine, but the combination of the contemporary military uniforms on Theseus’s attendants and the “new age” gossamer silk on the fairies is unusual, to say the least. Bottom and the other players are dressed in ambiguous, timeless costumes, the way Shakespeare’s plays are written, The overall effect is the achievement of nested levels of fantasy returning to an impressive reality. But the play is first and foremost a comedy, and comedy is built into every part of the production - even some o,f the costumes. Bottom gets his head turned into a donkey’s, and the expression qn his tiask is priceless. That single prop is probably worth the price of admission. The other new feature of the performance was the music, also new age. Not only were the fairy scenes introduced with pleasant chiming bell-like synthesizer tones, but musical parts were sung by cast members as well. If there was anything to complain about at all in the performance, it would be the songs. They were sung beautifully by

A*ndrew Gash played to a packed and expectant crowd at Phil’s .Grandson’qr Place last Thursday night. There were three aspects of his performance which were found to be impressive - heart, sincerity, and sense of history. Cash’s heart is in his music, his lyrics, and his performance. Though he might do well to develop a couple of new moves, Cash gives all during every song. Even the ultra-feminists in the front row didn’t seem to dampen his spirit with their ridiculous over*vigilance of his use of the term “man”. Cash’s lyrics are not only sincere but believable. Hand gripping the mike, wedding band in full display, Cash started,“this is a little song about the difficulties of keeping commitments in the 20th century.” Such a sentiment almost seems to clash with his overall “nice guy” image, but at the same time he leaves the audielice with no doubt that he has indeed had his fair (?) share of sexual temptations. Cash’s sense of Canadian-ness came through full-bore in a hot, raunchy rendition of an old Gordon Lightfoot classic, Sundown. Cash and the Ambassadors took this song to a new level of energy, especially when compared to Lightfoot’s drug induced oh-so-slow version. But Cash has nouglit but respect for the man from Huntsville, and showed this through this unadulterated and driven rendition

Henry V, at Stratford’s Avon Theatre is an exemplary examination of the excesses of monarchies and wars through time, This production offers cerebral and aesthetic satiation to those interested in Shakes,peare’s investigation of this power-hungry link in the British monarchical bloodline. The play op&ns in the fifteenth year of the 15th century [only five hundred years before the outbreak of the “war to end all wars”, WW I) during the respective reigns of Henry V of Britain and Charles VI of France. Artistic Director John Neville has skillfully, clothed this production in early zoth-century battle fatigues to add impact to this direct comment on the insensible

Every ch.aracter, no matter how removed from the plot, is somehow touched by the festering evil that has been let into the world by the thoughtless actions of poor. Beatrice Joanna. The Young Company merely sustains the action’ of the play; nothing con.temporary has been brought

by Derek We&r Imprint staff The Stone Roses are the U.K.% latest Grand Hype, having been covered to death in British journals like NME and Melody Maker, After a handful of acclaimed British releases, this is their first domestic album release. I must admit, the record sleeve looks pretty cool (the best I’ve seen since that Michelle Shocked album). However, the proof, as

they say, is. in the vinyl (well OX:, so that’s not exactly what they say]. The unfortunate truth is that, if this LP is any indicatiors, The Stone Roses are nowhere near being the next big thing. In fact, they are merely an extremely competent British indie band with your usual fondness for the guitar. They are no better and no worse than scores of other bands that are out their doing their best to put food on the table in this crazy business of rock ‘n’ roll (or something like that].

For the week ending July 22, 1988

At first, I thought I would write the review on the new album by White Zombie without listening to it. Then I thought: nab, better give the darn thing a listen. (I should have gone with my first choice.] In the forty-odd minutes it took to enjoy White Zombies particular brand of metallic dirge, my mind began to wander and my anal sphincter clamped itself shut. And I mean really stinking tight. What else could 1 possibly be doing? Driving a red hot spike into my cranium’, sucking puss from Gertrude Stein’s big toe, trimming nose hairs with a weed-whacker, all wonderful choices, but alas ‘fweren’t to be, White Zombies are a pitiful excuse for a metal band. While doing their best (?) impersonation of Metallica, they fail because they are a talentless bunch of* yutzes, There exists a very fine Iine between Thrash Metal and Trash Metal - and it’s more than just the “h”. Every song sounds like the previous song. The vocals are incoherent: the Iiner notes help, but then you realize how incredibly inane the lyricd actual1 are.

Since the demise of the great days of Warner Brothers and Walt Disney animations, there have been few consistent sources of entertaining and artistic cartoons. Fortunately, the 21st International Tournee of Animation, along, with its twenty predecessors, ppovides a stable force within the world of cartoon entertainment. This year’s contribution offers fourteen diverse examples of the state of the art, ranging from pixelation to claymation and on to traditional hand drawn animation. Each of the shorts is rated below. Comments have only been included for those pieces that are remarkable for some ’ reason. 7~ Tours, a self-indulgent product of artistic masturbatioti, is one of the most pointlesd, mindnumbing pair of minutes imaginable.

The killing by J. Michael Ryan Imprint staff You know it seems like yesterday that I was writing about the Joke’s appearance at RPM. But it wasn’t the day before today, it was months agd, chow time flied, how things change, how quickly we mould and eventually die. This time Killing Joke played at the Siboney, an infinitely mobe suitable venue than that warehouse on the waterfront. The smaller space afforded the Joke an opportunity to play at a more, intimate, almost subderma1 level. 1 Their set list wasn’t too different from their last appearance but the songs sounded a lot more immediate than before. They seemed to eviscerate their best tunes, peeling away‘all the niceties and leaving a bloody, spinal rhythm to pulsate fiercely in the midnight sun. They may be mouldy old prats with idiotic ideas about life, its meaning and purpose but this show reminds you that they’ve written some great songsi

As usual, Jaz is the focus of the festivities - bugged out eyes, silly danceg, moronic patter - a great front man, The rest of the crew almost blend into the background, which considering how mutated th.ey‘are, is a good thing. It’s amazing how well the older material holds up. The new stuff isn’t too bad either, Extremities .really kicks butt - as they like to say in rock and roll circles. The only real dud is the tedious epic Age Of Greed, for which the crowd was conspicuously unenthusiastic. Of course rock and roll has little to do with music and a Killing lake performance has little in comtion with objective reality. It’s

Warriors

lJW .Comes in fourth by Rich Nichol and Glenn Hauer Imprint staff The Waterloo volleyball Warriors had waited long enough for a shot at the national title. UW ended up on the short end of a five game nailbiter against Western in the 1986-87 OUAA West division finals, The Warriors won the West in 1987-88, stealing the pennant back from the Mustangs’, but dropped another five game thriller to the U of T Blues in the OUAA championships. Therefore‘, Waterloo was mighty hungry to go to the CIAUs in 1988-89. And why not? With all of last season’s squad returning, UW was in its best condition for a national dhampionship attempt. The Warriors certainly showed their determination in the pre-season by claiming the gold at two different tournaments, In the Brock Invitational, Waterloo won nine of 11 games to take the crown, and notched six out of seven games, to clinch the East-West Tournament in London. The undefeated Warriors were more than ready to charge into league play. October 27 at Brock: Waterloo had no problem disposing of the mediocre Badger squad in their first league match, In less than 40 minutes, UW dismantled Brock in three straight games, 15-2, 15-2, and 15-3. Waterloo head coach Rob Atkinson formulated a confident response after the game, saying, “Unfortunately for the fans, this is the way it’s going to be most of this year!” November 1 verzw Laurier: Although they had to play in the small gym at the PAC, the Warriors felt comfortable in *their home opener against the Hawks, In the opening game, Waterloo was completely dominant, the score 15-l. The Warriors’ side out ball was unstoppable as a result of very accurate passing. Things didn’t change much in game two as Waterloo allowed only five Laurier points. On’s fake-to-middle reverse set by Tony Martins, power hitter Brian Damman went up without a block and smashed the ball onto open Laurier floor. Atkinson decided to try out his

The Warrior bench players swept Laurier 15o in a game highlighted by strong performances from rookie Mike Fullerton and alternate setter Ian Hyman. Waterloo had finished’ their second 3-O massacre of the season in under 40 minutes. November 4 at Western: Finally, the Warriors played against a team with an offence that could actually challenge them. In the cavern-like confines of the Western gymnasiuni, Waterloo continued its flawless season defeating the Mustangs in three straight garhes, 15-8, 15-6, and 1542. Overconfidence plagued the Warriors in this match-as their offence sputtered. slightly. Neverthelesg, all five of the.starting hitters had eight to ten kills, showing Martins’ remarkable setting ability,

Martins also showed a strong defensive effort, leading Water-loo with 11 digs, and heading towards another OUAA all-star 4eason.

November 15 verBus McMaster: Waterloo showed no mercy in the first two games, pummeling the Marauders 15-3 and 15-l. Atkinson ,went to the bench crew in game three once again and Waterloo had the slight edge 13-8. But a lack of enthusiasm to win allowed McMaster to come back with six straight points and eventually steal the game on an exciting stuff block, 17-15. This ended the Warriors’ amazing II game winning streak. With the starters back on the court for game four+, it took the Warriors half the game to get rolling again. Waterloo stormed for seven straight points after an 8-8 deadlock to win the game 15-8 and the match 3-1. Waterloo is now setting the pace atop the OUAA West with a 4-0 record. Siblings Steve and Scott Smith had outstanding hitting games - Steve consistently effective. at the power position and Scott with ari impressive kill percentage.

November 22 VBISUS/Guelph:

_What more can ydu say aboufa team with virtually no competition in its own division? Waterloo took just under 50 minutes to defeat their next victim’, a somewhat confused Gryphon squad, 3-o.

The Warriors showed their authority early in the match, winning the first two games 15-6 and 15-0. Once agaiti, Atkinson brought out his bench players for some court time in game three. After building a 9-O lead, Waterloo’s replacement crew . settled for a 15-13 win td sweep the match 3-O. Fans and critics alike are now believing that UWs

passing and hyperactive hitting caused Waterloo to fall behind early in the opening game 10-6. Windsor native Dave Shum came to the rescue for the Warriord, serving nine straight tough float serves to win the game 159, 10,

Waterloo looked a little lazy on the court in game two, and it’ nearly cost them the game, Middle player Scot\ Smith offered up several impressive hits arid passes to edge out the Lancers, 15-9,

An unenthused Atkinson blasted the team at the bench before game three and the Warriors woke up, smoking Windsor 15-2, to win the match in three straight. January 10 vertiu8 Brock: After a well deserved break at Christmas time, Waterloo increased their unblemished record to 7-0 with a 3-O sweep of the Badgers. UW won the first two games 15-2 and 15-8. Brock cashed in on many Warrior mistakes in the third game, nearly pulling off an upset victory when they crept within one point at 1241, But Waterloo cleaned up their*act and clinched the match with a 15-11 win, In the CIAU listings, the Warriors are ranked ninth while York (at fifth) is the only other Ontario team with a higher standing. Jan. 20 at Lauriar: Following some fairly dismal performances at the York Excalibur and Winnipeg Invitational Tournaments, Waterloo rebounded back to true form ‘in league play against the Golden Hawks. The Warriors continued their merciless slaughterfest with three quick games, 15-3, 15-3, and X5-8.

January

24

versus Western:

Game one saw two nervous teams playing side out ball for a while. But with Dave Plouffe promoted to power hitter the Warriors soon took over game one -

the

score

15-5.

Western’s passing continued to weaken their own attack in the second game of the match and, unfortunatel$ Waterloo fell victim to the same constraints. A lack of kills on side out balls cost UW the game 15-12. Bouncing baak in the third, the Warriors chalked up a convinc-

ing 15-2 victory, highlighted by a Steve Smith roof spike and a combination slam by Steve Heck and Martins. Confidence stayed with Waterloo and produced some good hustle, aggressiveness, and patience as the Warriors wrapped up the match with a 15-4 win in game four. January 27 at Guelph: After defeating tenth ranked Western’, Waterloo had a bit of trouble disposing of Guelph in their second meeting this season. In a match marred by low quality play, the Warriors eked out wing of 15-6, 15-10, and 16-14. Perhaps the Warriors were just saving energy for the upcoming weekend tournament. East-West Challenge at York: The strategy worked as the Warriors beat ninth ranked Toronto 3-1 and surprised third ranked York 3-O in exhibition play. This put Waterloo back into the CIAO rankings in eighth place. February 2 at McMaster: In a carbon copy performance of their previous meeting in league play, Waterloo defeated the Marauders three games to one by scores of 115-2, 15-5, 12-15, and 15-4. The Warriors now stand at 11-0, a phenomenally flawless record, with only one game left in the season.

Lava1 Carnival Tournament at Laval: UW was allowbd to have an on-court look at some of its nationally ranked opponents with an appearance at the Lava1 Carnival Tournament in Quebec. After defeating - fourth t ranked Laval, sixth. ranked Sherbrooke, and the University of Montreal in round-robin play, Waterloo took the gold medal in the finals against Lava1 and deservingly vaulted to third in the national ranks.

17 versus Windsdr:

Waterloo finished the regular season with an unblemished 1% 0 record after a 3-O lambasting of thi! Lancers. Hot off the Quebec Tourney, the Warriors vapourized Windsor IS-4,154, and 15-4 in a mere 37 minutes. OUAA West Division Semi-

Finals February 25 versus McMaster:

Although Mac c4inched the fourth and final playoff spot in the OUAA West with a mediocre 5-7 record, the Marauders were no match for the streaking Warriors.’ But the match was not a cakewalk, as Waterloo collected an ‘unusually low number of blocks and digs. Consequently, the contest became a side out affait, which would be won by the team with rthe least mistakes. A very boring first game saw 23 sideouts before. three points were scored. Qn the 14th point Martins and Steve Smith put up a huge block and were rewarded with the slam. The game ended 15-10.

The excitement started to build in game two. Heck nearly bounced the ball into the roof on a quick set by Martins. Scott Smith finished off the second game with a slam to make it 15-g. McMaster had dug themselves a deep hole and just fell into it in the third game, losing 15-5. After advancing to the finals in the OUAA West, Waterloo received

OUAA West Division Finals March 4 versus Western: In most other sportg, a game against Western would be an exciting rivalry. But 2000 Waterloo fans watched as the Warriors easily defeated the younger Mustangs 15-7, 15-11, and 15-8 to win the OUAA West final in three straight games, Western’s passing was atrocious and predictable in the first game, allowing Waterloo to jump ahead 13-2. The Warriors’blocking broke down a bit in game two. This, in combination with hitting errors’, enabled the Stangs to lose the middle game earning a respectable 11 points. On the winning point, UW’s Steve Smith cut a tough set onto the net. Fortunately, it rolled along the top of the net for five feet and teetered onto the Western court.

team all-Canadian Greg Williscroft mesmerized the Warriors with 30 kills, most of which were used to win the first two games for UBC, 15-12 and 15-12. A very stubborn and determined Waterloo squad did not give up, defeating the Thunderbirds 15-12 in the third. Heck stuffed a ball at the whining Williscraft a couple of times to cap off an easy 15-3 UW victory ._in game four. ‘tEXPEt?tEIVCE

Waterloo fell behind 8-O in game five, They needed to start an offensive attack a-nd also exert pressure on Williscraft to eliminate his resurging kill power. The plan came through as UW recovered to take the lead 14-10. Late

in the game, it was 15-14 Waterloo. On the following serve, Heck knew exactly where the ball was going to go,-as he slammed the UBC all-Star once again to win it, The crowd gave Watei’loo a standing ovation for their gritty comeback. CIAU Semi Finals versus Calgary Dinosaurs: Calgary is undoubtedly the best team in

York: After a tough 3-2 loss to York in the OUAA championship, Waterloo could now possibly gain revenge in the game that really counts for something. But it was not to be, Waterloo was disheartened, flat and uninspired. York built up an 11-O lead before UW scored a point and the Yeomen eventually won the first match 15-10. Yet, as always, Waterloo bounced back to lead 13-7 in game- two and were ready for a tough, exciting mat-ch. Unfortunately, the ill-fated Warrior9 then fell apart with

All they needed to do was cut down on errors and it would have been very competitive.

two hitting errors and three bad passes, York edged Waterloo for the second game, 18-6. The deflated Warriors couldn’t recoup. York took the third and final game 15-6 in front of a small crowd of Waterloo fa:thful. Post-season thoughts: Overall, it was an amazing season for this highly talented squad. The players can hold their heads high, as they were the pride of Waterloo Athletics this past season. The calibre of the competition in Canadian volleyball this season was tremendoud, a fourth place finish is something to be proud of.

People who stayed in their living rooms in Kitchener were telling me about crashes that had taken place yards away from me but to which I was oblivious. Ah, the miracle of television; the best seat artiund., Mind you, ‘I gleaned a few interesting facts while milling about, For instance, did you know that the heart rate of an Indy car driver can go as fast as 195 beats a minute, which is faster than an astrotiaut’s at takeoff? The average heart rate for the drivers is about 175 bpti, which is comparable to that of an Olympic-level marathon runner. Not only that, on hot days (which the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd were, reaching temperatures of about 32 degrees Celcius), the cockpit temperature of the cars can average 150 degrees Fahrenheit, leading to severe dehydra-
