Housing forum heats everyone up by Mike Sore
Imprint staff Recommended amendments to the City of Waterloo’s zoning by-laws may impede the city’s ability to restrict the number of students who can live in a single dwelling. The current by-laws, which allowed no more than five unrelated persons to live’in a single dwelling, were struck down by the provincial government as being discriminatory. As a result, the city has been left with zoning by-laws which it can not enforce. On October 11, the city held an information meeting to discuss amendments to the by-laws. The meeting, which was attended by about 100 homeowners and students, including student representatives from UW and WLU, was at times heated and emotional. A report prepared by city planner Rob Deyman, outlining seven possible zoning by-law approaches, was the basis for discussion. The report’s approaches range from maintaining’the status quo, to creating a student housing zone similar to one which exists in Kingston. * The report concludes that city council should adopt a “definition approach.” 4 This zoning scheme would see the definitions of “family,” “dwelling unit,” “boarding house” and “foster child”, deleted from current by-laws. They would be replaced by the new definitions of “Single Housekeeping Unit,” “Dwelling Unit,‘,’ “Boarding House,” and “Boarder.” The approach would also result in the repealing of the Interim Control by-law, which pr’ohibits the conversions of single detached dwellings to multiple unit forms and boarding houses in the Central-Fountain neighbourhoods. speakin Ialong-side WLU stbdent council vice-presi dent, Stuart Lewis, Fran Wdowczyk, UW vice-president (university affairs), told city officials that “we are leaning toward (the definition approach), with minor revisions. The wording is not exactly the way we would like to see it, but we feel that is the best option.” The two student representatives say they also want the city to fund a study on student housing. Ultimately, Wdowczyk says she would like to see the city allow “unlimited occupancy (of dwellings], and use stronger by-law enforcement” to reduce noise, ensure premises are maintained and handle other by-law infractions. Most residents who spoke at the meeting ex-
pressed concern with the way the city and their neighbourhoods look, not with the student housing. Absentee landlords, landlords who do not maintain premises and students who do not understand their rights are the major contributors to the problem. Lakeshore resident Al Hunter told the meeting he would like to see a more vigorous enforcement of by-laws and more responsibility placed on the shoulders of landlords. John McMenemy, a Fountain Street resident and professor at WLU, declared “Waterloo is becoming a slum. Waterloo will be characterized by slums.” He said students only get a “snapshot” view of the city and do not see the deteriorating conditions, McMenemy placed the blame on politicians, landlords, student and the universities. Peter Huggins, of Hazel Street, pleaded with city council to place restrictions on all types of housing. “Otherwise you are going to ghettoize the area around the universities, and some of us would like to live there a little longer.” The comments by McMenemy, Huggins, and others, who told similar stories of deteriorating conditions in their neighbourhoods, stirred the emotions of residents in the audience, ‘often drawing applause, cheers of support and nods of understanding. In an attempt to improve relations between residents and students+ the student governments at the two universities are currently examining the feasibility of “student self-policing” and establishing a 24 hour complaints hot-line. But Wdowczyk says these ideas are “definitely in the infancy stage.” “The emphasis is on getting students to know what their rights are,” says Wdowczyk. “Once they know (their rights), they will feel more comfortable and be willing to do more *to maintain their residences.” The report’s recommendations are to be discussed by Waterloo City Council at 7:30pm on October 23, 1989 in the Council Chambers. Wdowczyk, however, feels the city will wait until after the November 18, housing sympo’ sium, to be held at WLU, before making any by-law amendments. The symposium is being hosted by the City of Waterloo, WLU and UW. Invited are representatives from all of Ontario’s universities and university communities, as well as representatives from the provincial government.

UW receives by Mike Soro Imprint staff
UW received $299,000 from the Ministry of Colleges and Universities to improve its accessibility for students with disabilities. The grant is part of a $4 million accessibility funding envelope the ministry has established for universities and colleges in Ontario to implement or enhance support services for students with special needs. The allocation will become a permanent component of the base ’ funding for universities. The decision to provide accessibility funding w,asmade on advice from the Ontario Council on University Affairs. Florence Thomlinson, UW coordinator of services for disabled persons, says she is excited about the allocation. “We have been operating for five and a half years with no funding except what the university could afford. Up until now the government has done nothing.” According to Thomlinson, many Ontario universities have done little to provide support services for students with disabilities. As a result, students with disabilities have beeri discouraged from attending university or college. “They are getting through the high schools and making it to university because the high schools are now accessible. The universities did not prepare for these students, and are now trying to catch up.” Without a budget, the Office of Services for Disabled Persons has survived since 1984 on a strong volunteer base, and hundreds of hours of overtime by Thomlinson and her small dedicated staff. Currently, the office offers reading services for blind stu-
dents and assists new students in becoming oriented with the campus, accompanies students back and forth from , classes, helps them set-up in the classroom, proctors examinations and generally helps the students cope with university life and eventually become as independent as possible. With the provincial funding, Thomlinson plans OII improving services and purchasing equipment “needed to bring the opportunities for students with disabilities up to the same level as everyone else.” , Items so far on the shopping list include, two computers and speci,alized software, four TDD telephones, FM hearing equipment [which will be on loan) and a Kurzweil Reader which scans book type and, with a voice output, “reads” to the user. The office has already hired a part-time councillor to help with disability related problems or difficulties and intends to also use part of the funds to hire more clerical staff. Thomlinson says there is a need for a “standard of provisions” at all Ontario universities and colleges. “Students with disabilities should be able to choice between any university in Ontario, knowing they offer the same standard of provisions.”

The University of Waterloo Alumni Association launched the UW Mastercard in September in hope of offsetting the cost of its Quarterly Alumni Magazine. Applications are being accepted for both UW graduates and undergraduates. This card, iwhich features the Dana Porter library on it, is a Bank of Montreal affinity Mastercard with a wide range of features. These include one per cent off the standard Bank of Montreal Mastercard interest rate, and credit card’s registration service, among others. These services do not come free, however - an annual $10 fee is charged which is being waived for the first year. This fee is not expected to increase in the near future. The Alumni Association is also looking at forming a Users’ Group with other affinity card holders, with the idea of possibly providing further benefits to their: card holders. This would not increase the $10 fee charged by the bank. Alumni Affairs hopes that there will be 3500 to 4000 cards issued in the first year of the card. So far, around 850 applications have been processed. Accarding to the Bank of Montreal, this is a good turnout based on other University affinity cards. The Alumni Association wants to raise $35,000 a year from the card, which will pay for the cost of publishing one issue of their magazine. Currently, they get l/4 of one per cent of the purchases made with the card, but a high use of the card will push this to around 0.3 per cent of the purchases made. Apart from the initial promotion in October’s issue, there are no plans for on-going promotion af

day of action
by Susan Butler Bob Rae, leader of the NDP, also addressed the cheering crowd saying, “No politician, no matter how well-meaning or allknowing they think they are, has the right to tell women what to do with their bodies.” When the roar of the crowd subsided, he added that we “are fighting for the day when women can make a choice without fear or intimidation.” The NDP is the only party that has expressed an opinion concerning the abortion issue.
Keep the coat hangers in the closet, Keep your laws off my body, Men for women’s choice; these were among the many signs carried by Pro-Choice demonstrators at the National Day of AGtion in Toronto on Saturday, October 14. More than 3,500, men and women gathered at Queen’s Park in a demonstration of the strength of the Pro-Choice majority. When the rally moved to the streets, the crowd swelled to well over 4,000 as people joined in the two-hour march. The theme of the rally, “Don’t lose the right to choose,” signified pro-choice opposition to the threat of new laws re-criminalizing aborition. CARAL, the Canadian Abortion Rights Action League, organized the rally. Similar demonstrations took placein more than 30 centres across Canada, Calgary organized a candlelight vigil and demonstrators in Thunder Bay presented coat hangers to an MP as a symbol-of backstreet abortions. A large n.umber of groups attended the rally, including the YMCA, AIDS Action Now, Planned Par-

one and therefore the conscience of the individual must be paramount to that of the state.” She added that re-criminalizing abortion would be “setting a woman’s body against herself.” A speaker representing AIDS Action Now described the prochoice movement as rra fight against state control of sexuality.”
The rally was also a celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the de-criminalization of contraception and women’s rights to reproductive freedom. These rights were solidified two years ago when criminal sanctions against abortion were struck down by the Supreme Court, This summer, however, injunctions (later lifted) to prevent Barbara Dodd and Chantal Daigle from having. abortions left Canadian women fearful of losing their right to choice. A handful of pro-life suppor: ters dotted the periphery, but did not cross University Avenue to Queen’s Park.
No more binge and puke by Tamara Speers We are led to believe dieting will bring beauty, happiness and success. It may well lead to anorexia nervosa or bulimia instead. This is the message to be spread on campuses across North America during “Eating Disorder Awareness Week.” On October 25 at 7 p.m., the Women’s Issue Board will show the film Still KilIing Us Softly. It will be followed by a discussion with Theresa Casteels of Counselling Services. It will be held in Biology One, room 295. The 1989 campaign will target universities and colleges, since eating disorders are an important concern in this population. It has been estimated that two to four per cent of college women
are bulimic, while a larger number have many of the symptoms, such as binge eating and occasional vomiting. Moving away from home, growing independence, and the stresses of university life corn-. monly act as precipitating factors to the development of eating, disorders in students. An eating disorder seriously affects academic performance, interpersonat relationships and general mental and physical health. Given accurate information, university personnel, friends and family members are in an excellent position to prevent the development of eating disorders through the early detection of warning signs or symptoms. Anorexia nervosa commonly
begins during adolescence, but there are many individuals who have been struggling for years with the disorder and finally present for treatment when they are in their twenties, thirties or forties. It is characterized by an intense fear of weight gain, and the relentless pursuit of thinness through restrictive dieting often accompanied by obsessive exercise. Fearless Friday has been established during Eating Disorder Awareness Week to
promote normal eating as an alternative to dieting and to encourage people to take a more critical look at restrictive eating. On Fearless Friday, individuals on diets across the country are encouraged to eat what they want and abandon their fear of weight gain for the day. On Friday, October 27 at the Campus Centre a booth will be set up with information and cookies, to encourage others to eat without feeling guilty.
Cdlection II opening I at ~ library H The UW Friends of the Library society is hosting the opening of the Breithaupt Hewetson Clark Collection, donated by the family of the late H, Spencer Clark and Rosa Breithaupt Clark, on October 27 at 3:3O p.m. The collection is in the Doris Lewis Rare Book Room of the arts library, Local historians tracing the development of the Waterloo Region will find it an invaluable resource, for the collection includes the 1867 to 1927diaries of Louis Jacob Breithaupt, correspondence between various family members, news clippings about the Breithaupts, and a large collection of photographs. As well, the collection illustrates the pioneering work in architectural conservancy undertaken by Spencer and Rosa Clark, known for their formation in 1932 of the Guild of All Arts, a working centre for artists and craftsmen in Scarborough.
The short program and reception starts with a welcoming address by President Douglas Wright followed by a commentary on the Collection by historian Dr. Kenneth McLaughlin of St. Jerome’s College. A commemorative volume will also complement the photographs and other items from the Collection displayed that day. Everyone is invited to attend.
Don’t believe the hype Public Enemy is coming to town Monday night, and the town is quite understandably abuzz with anticipation - Public Enemy is, after all, the most controversial and certainly one of the most innova-
tive, explosive, and important bands of the late 1980s. Many local fans have gushed with excitement about the coming show, but it is distressing to hear just as many, maybe more, say something along the lines of, “Yeah, but they’re a bunch of racists, aren’t they?” Public Enemy’s affiliation with Louis Farrakhan and the Black Muslim movement, long-associated with anti-Semitism, as well as the radical politics of their music, made the group vulnerable to charges of racism, charges which came to a head with Professor Griff’s [Public Enemy‘s Minister of Information) much-hyped, anti-Semitic tirade in the Washington Post. Griff’s remarks were regrettable, ill-conceived, and unforgivable, but the aftermath of the Post article says more about racism in North America than about Public Enemy’s alleged racism. The truths exposed by Chuck D. about the exploitation of blacks by white America from the days of slavery to the present, about the systematic ghettoization and ruthless suppression of blacks, about blacks being robbed of their heritage and culture while white America celebrates its European history and traditions, about the fact that the drug trade is not perpetrated by, but victimizes blacks, have been all but lost in the racism furor. Black recording acts have often met with great commercial success with white audiences [as have, incidentally, Public Enemy), but they have generally had a non-threatening stance toward whites; Public Enemy’s incendiary rap points a hostile, accusing finger at white America, detailing with unclouded vision the abuse blacks have suffered in (North) America. And whites simply cannot deny their agency in producing a black underclass and then conspiring to keep it uneducated and impoverished. White guilt is undeniable, but whites do not want to be reminded of it; a band like Public Enemy disturbs their peace of mind. One way of dealing with someone pointing out your faults is to find fault with that person and magnify it. White America may be racist, but see?A member of Public Enemy made anti-Semitic comments, so who are they to tell us we’re wrong? Forget everything they say about us, they’re just a bunch of Jew-haters (and the rest of America isn’t?] Things really have not changed that much in the fifty years since the uproar over the publication of Native Son, Richard Wright’s cautionary tale about the violent results of black rage pent up after suffering generations of racial abuse and injustice. Wright tells of whites’ fondness for happy-go-lucky, sweet-smiling, contented blacks and whites’ fear and loathing of angry blacks - that rage forces whites to look inward and admit their complicity in keeping blacks largely underprivileged. Fifty years later, The Cosby Show, featuring an eminently contented, middle class black(ish) family that feels at home in the white world, warms enough white hearts to perch atop the ratings, while Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, a brilliant, visceral film about the ugly, brutal violence that inevitably erupts in a pressure cooker of racial4ension in which everyone - whether they be white, black, Italian, Korean, etc.- is responsible, is widely denounced as promoting violence against whites. There are no good guys in Lee’s film; the tolerant whites turn out to harbour deep-seated feelings of racism, while the complacent blacks hit back against them with an unforeseen rage. What Spike Lee, Richard Wright, and Public Enemy have all done is hold a mirror up to reality. They are warning about an unhealthy climate where Donald Trump takes out a full page ad in the &w York Times after a white woman is allegedly raped by black youths in Central Park, while the rape and murder of a black woman a few days later receives only cursory coverage; where a sixteen year-old black is lured into the white New York neighbourhood of Bensonburst and then beaten to death by a gang of white youths - wfi‘en blacks stage a march through Bensonhurst a couple of days later, they are met with abuse from white cesidEnts who tell reporters the blacks are obviously looking for trouble. To dismiss artists like Public Enemy and Spike Lee is a transparent effort to deflect and invalidate their criticisms. And then we will profess outrage and shock when the next outbreak of racial violence occurs. Chris Wodskou

The citation accompanying the award praised the Dalai Lama, saying he had “advocated peaceful solutions based on tolerance and mutual respect in order to preserve the historical and cultural heritage of his people.” China had always seen Tibet as a natural part of its territory. In 1950, Tibetan independence came to a bloody end with the Chinese takeover.
As the 14th reincarnation of the supreme spiritual/political leader of this remote Buddhist kingdom, the Dalai Lama has iravelled the world meeting many prominent and influential individuals.
Therecipient,describinghim- 0th in meditaiion. -
For years it has ruled Tibet with an iron hand. With systematic brutality, it has attempted to eradicate Tibetan culture, killing civilians, forcing monks out of monasteries and into the army then destroying many thousands of religious structures and works of art. These enormous crimes are not against Tibet alone, but all humanity. China, once the victim of European Imperialism, now teaches the West h6w low Imperialism can sink. In 1959, the Dalai Lama fled with 100,000 Tibetans to sanctunry in the Himalayan foothills
He has shared his unique inSights in many ways, in print, on film, he has even lectured at Harvard on the Tibetan view on the human mind. This international role in no way takes from his first and foremost task, being the symbol and hope of over two million Tibetans living under Chinese rule. China has interpreted the award as one more example of the West’s continuing interference in China’s internal affairs, Beijing’s embassy in Oslo, Norway, where the five-member committee announced the prize,
said: “Tibet’s affairs are wholly and purely China’s own business, The Dalai Lama is not only a religious leader but also a political figure who aims to divide the mother country and undermine national unitv.” Egil Aavik, Nobel committee chairman, said the selection can be viewed as an encouragement to the student led reform movemerit, Manv Tibetans inside and outside T&et see this both as an acknowledgement of their revered leader and a slap in the face of their enemy and oppressor, China. “What we have is the moral authority . . , we are fighting a just cause”, said an official of the Tibetan government-inexile. What cbuld be a greater insult to China at this time? “Moral authority” against brute force, a “simple monk” against the Red Army! “What difference does it make?” If nothing- else it shows the strange possibility that an individual of vision can influence the councils of nations and perhaps, with immense patience, bring about the impossible.

#*#!?&?*? . !!#-(?!)I##*=!$$&*?!!! Although I wasn’t terribly impressed by the reaction to the swastikas in the Arts section rating guide on Sept 29 /Ott 6, I felt the purpose behind the use of symbols in the section, as well as their abundance in, and effects on society should be commented on. Symbols are convenient tools mankind has employed since the dawn of time to make life easier, simpler to comprehend, Big ideas in small packages, essentially. Remembering that our language is expressed with symbols and has changed over the years to suit our needs indicates that man eternally strives to master the symbols he creates. We are creatures of expression, not puppets. J.G. Ballard once wondered would it be a crime if someone, upon attending one of the Queen’s parades, held up a sign in front of her saying “ASSASSINATION” or “GUN.” Of course not. There is a world of difference between symbols and reality. The symbols used in the first
symbol rating guide were: the swastika, the baseball, the cross, the iron cross, and the usually absent nuclear fusion symbol. Their order was not contrived, but since the swastika is one of, if not the most powerful symbol I know of, I was not sad to see it first, giving the symbol rating guide some serious context. This piece is not solely about swastikas, but since it was the only symbol anyone really cornplained about, obviously pulling some strings, I will digress more than perhaps I should on them. The biggest question here is: what does the swastika mean? Now I don’t mean the swastika
of 60,000 years ago, that would be a cop-out on my *part, as a symbol of well-being pale next to the power the Nazi’s gave it. Nor, though, am I generous enough to define it as it was during and after WW II - where “limitless evil” and death camp atrocities were essentially revealed to the world through a swastika-shaped. window. First, consider this: the rating
guide was not composed solely of swastikas. Would that have made a difference? I think so; any symbol is governed by the context in which it is placed. The major criticisms of the rating guide were essentially that the swastika was: out of place, out of context, presented casually. Now, both you and I know that any symbol being crushed by a boot [a symbol in itself) gives a different impression than the same symbol crushing something else (a body, a dove - symbols, symbols, symbols.) The swastika never appeared without, at least, the baseball following it -it was always contained in a larger context. My own thoughts and feelings regarding these symbols and their relationships are irrelevant; the whole point with symbols is that we each assess what they mean to us. So what’s this about casual context? My speculation is those that complained about the rating guide were no,t upset that the symbols were cosudy used, whatever that means, but were annoyed that .
the context they favor to see the swastika in was not the one presented. I believe my critics actually wished to “take a stand” against Nazism, anti-Semitism, and racism, but in desperation to “be counted,” became slaves to symbols. None of the letters we received mentioned Hitler or Nazism, and ihly one [President of Waterloo Jewish Students Assoc.) mentioned “the holocaust.” Are these things secondary to the importance of the swastika? I don’t wish to get involved with various ethnic groups and their reaso’ns for criticizing my actions, but one girl told me she had seen swastikas painted on synagogues. Keeping in mind the differences in context, such an occurrence is in itself an act of, at least crime or at most, Nazism.

The present law exists as a convenience, allowing appropriate authorities to confine individuals who un-successfully attempt to commit suicide until appropriate help can be administered. Obviously, laws prohibiting successful suicide are moot,
Sex attack! This past week was AIDS Awareness Week in Ontario. (“no way”, “get out of town”, “let’s have a party”) Yes, I too am tired of the AIDS Scare, even though it is a real threat. For most university students [unless there are more drug pushers out there than I thought) AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease. The problem with AIDSis you cannot detect it until it is too late and then you can’t get rid of it. I dislike the focus of some of these awareness weeks, as they ignore other dangerous and troublesome STDs which are more prevalent. Most of the troublesome STDs are treatable, but they can become permanently damaging if left untreated. Chlamydia has been very noticeable of late. Chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (sometimes signalled by a burning sensation when urinatirti] which may lead tosterility and other unsinhtlv complications.

ity in 1989 of the symbols by which you think you recognize what you oppose. I have a suspicion that today’s Nazis have left the swastika far behind, as a smoke-screen. BEWARE of knee-jerk reactions. When a symbol pulls your strings a bit too hard, wonder if you’re being driven to distraction. The major thing I would like people to consider is: if you see something that you don’t agree with [i.e. it doesn’t reflect your already-instilled values), rather than assume a convenient antiposition to it [one merely reinforcing said values,) look a bit beyond - question the validity of the premise by which you base your reaction. I salute those that do and did. If you don’t’have the time, forget it. Last thing: remember that phrase those that do not remember the past tire condemned to repeat it? Well, you have to get what you’re remembering right and you have to perceive today through a clear window - unobstructed by the dirt of cliched historicai prejudice. Continually evaluate symbols; they can be useful, but in the case of the rusty swastika, its historical context must be separated from its modern ability to identify the ideology that it once represented.

Don’t make the prospective person a partner until you trust him/her with your wallet and bank account number first. Another means of protection is proper use of a latex condom. This method can also be fun with experimentation. Whether you choose to have sex or not, the number of partners you have is your choice. Nothing can stop you from your the choices you make, but having multiple partners does make you a risk to them and yourself. So have some consideration for others as well as yourself.

Playboy pays To the editor, “I read it for the articles” is an excuse some men use when caught reading a copy of Playboy when they are doing nothing but scanning the pictures. There is, however, a grain of truth to the phrase. The faclt is, Playboy DOES carry a lot of interesting fiction and non-fiction. The reason is very simple: they pay the best rates in the market. A typical non-fiction piece in Playboy will make the author at least US$SOOO.The minimum rate for fiction is US$ZOOO.Writers will often jump at the chance to make this kind of money. Being published in Playboy is often seen Ias a career-boosting move as well. It is not uncommon for fiction writers to be approached by New York publishers and agents after having a short story published in the magazine. Playboy is not the only such magazine, Penthouse pays similar rates, although its material tends to be more sensationalist. So, pictures aside, Playboy does indeed have “literary value.” Is is sexist? Of course the magazine is squarely aimed at the 18- to 35-year-old university-educated male. But then, any publication is biased, whether it’s the Toronto Star, The Globe 6 Mail or Imprint. I worry, though, that the militant feminists on campus would like to act as censors for the rest of the university population. If the feminists succeed in Bemoving PIoyboy from the li3rary, what will be the next caslaity in their vendetta? Eric Giguere IA CS/C&O

Working class rights To the editor, Any abortion legislation introduced in Parliament is sure to be some compromise that “balances” a woman’s rights with ‘7 he rights of the fetus.” If the government follows the Law Reform Commission of Canada, they will propose that women be arrested, tried and punished for aborting after zz weeks. Why would the government see such an arrangement as serving their interests best? Where is the utility in policirtg the uterus? The political context in Canada today is one of insecurity. As real wages shrink and more workers are imprisoned in longterm unemployment, a mood of helplessness provides larger audiences for the politics of the right. Not only so-called “neoconservatism”, but also Christian “fundamentalism”. These groups locate the source of the current socio-political problems in the decline of the traditional family unit. These anti-women, anti-homosexual bigots correlate a fabled stability of the past with the “sensible” or “natural” family structures then in place. The alternative li-
festyles now common have undermined the uniform social fabric that is necessary for general prosperity. In their view, there is one role for women. Independence, daycare, sex education, contraception, and abortion are all “wrong.” As isolated, wageless housewives; women were once content to play their part in a system that worked. Nauseating stuff, but society’s rulers then and now delight in this sort of bargain. For despite all that may be said on its behalf, the “family unit” has very distinct virtues for capitalism. It provides: free housekeeping, free childcare, support for underemployed and injured relatives and residence for a generation of under-pensioned retired workers. It is obvious that capitalism cannot provide these things. In Canada, in concert with the FTA and the GST, massive social service cutbacks are “required.” Government strategy on daycare, UI, VIA rail, Ontario Worker’s Compensation and care for seniors attempts to make working people foot the bill for capitalism’s flaws.

Plant breeders rights The vegetables and grains which make up the North Aherican diet were originally cultivated and developed over a period bf centuries by farmers around the world, Farmers and the general public view the genetic material for reproducing these plant varieties as a public resource and should be freely available to all. But now, as companies like Royal Dutch Shell and Ciba-Geigy but up the world’s seed companies+ seed production is rapidly becoming a big business. The spread of seed patent legislation, sometimes known as plant breeders rights [PBR), is an important part of this process. This legislation, now in place in a number of industrial nations, guarantees the owner exclusive rights to market a new variety usually for 18 years. Supporters of PBR argue that: * the legislation will give financial incentive to the private sector to expand its own breeding programs, complementing existing public programs, * Canadian farmers will benefit from the resulting development of new Canadian varieties, and from better access to the private varieties of other countries which already have access to seed patent legislation, * new export markets will open up for Canadian-developed varieties, * royalties collected on the sale of public varieties can be used to support further plant research in Canada. If the trend in other countries is any indication, it seems more likely that PBR will benefit only the company that owns the patent. Rather than expanded private seed research complementing public research in Canada, it is more likely that private research will supplant public research, as it has in other countries, Under the new scheme of things, university researchers agree to give the corporate, sponsor the patenting rights to the fruits of their labour. Furthermore, these scientists may not be able to publish their research or share any of their “trade secrets” without prior corporate approval. This is a radical shift away from the centuries-old tradition of the free flow of information among university researchers, tow\ards secrecy, selfishness, and cut-throat competition. Consequently+ multi-national companies are liable to conduct research and develop only those varieties that have profitable markets. As the potential for higher profits from the sale of hybrid or patented seeds increases, the availability of traditional plant varieties may be phased out, and the options for seed selection drastically limited. And, ‘as traditional seed varieties disappear from the market, the added expense of private varieties will be added to the

consumers pay for their food. This reduction in the gene pool runs contrary to what environmentalists have been calling for in both domestic and wild species. Seed patent legislation is the thin edge of the wedge. Due to advances in biotechnology, scientists can now develop new varieties of’micro-organisms, plants, and animals. The U.S. already permits full patent rights on these life-forms, and Canada will be pressured to do so as well,
In Canada, this encourages abusive agricultural techniques and aggravates the decline of the family farm. In the Third World, it exacerbates economic injustice as large landholders drive peasants off massive imported than the
their small plots of land. Third World countries develop debts and balance of payments deficits as the cost of agricultural seeds, machinery and chemicals rise faster export pride of the crops produced. ’
Ironically, the Third World now buys seeds from industrialized countries, even though the genetic resources from which these seeds were derived were taken mostly from the Third World without compensation. The original plants and seeds were either taken when these countries were colonies, or given freely in the interest of furthering scientific knowledge. In May 1989, the Mulroney government introduced Bill C-15, ‘the fourth attempt to establish seed patenting in Canada. The new bill is consistent with the Canada-U.S. trade deal, reflecting the US demand that the “intel!ectual property rights” of the U.S. seed corporations be respected in Canada as they are at home. Bill C-15 would precipitate a host of expensive procedures not existing under the present system. Patents would not be issued unless the variety under consideration could be shown to be new and different. A patenting application must be drafted by a team of lawyers and scientists, once a new variety was developed. If their application were rejected, a corporation would be able to appeal the decision. While some costs would clearly be the corporation’s responsibility, the administration costs of the government agency would be covered by our tax dollars. This bill is being staunchly opposed by a coalition.of organizations, coordinated by GROW (Genetic Resources for Our World). Here’s what you can do.

Invasion by Marc Brzustowski Imprint staff When James Dunn testified before the U.S. Congress in March of 1977 on the subject of what Congressional Committee chair Donald Fraser called “allegations of genocide committed by the Indonesian forces against the population of East Timor,” the reaction was generally hostile. One member of Congress, J. Herbert Burke, wrote that “I have my own suspicions respecting what might be behind [James Dunn’s] testimony... it is in all our interests to bury the issue quickly and completely.” With few exceptions, the issue was buried: the death of as many as two hundred-thousand East
Timorese at the hands of the Indonesian armed forces since 1975 has received scant media coverage and has escaped the condemnation of the Western governments which pride themselves on their concern for human rights, the same governments which equipped the Indonesian arrried forces. But James Dunn, and others like him, will be testifying again.

The occupation forces have launched at least three major counter-insurgency operations this decade, including Operation Security in 1981, Operation Clean Sweep in 1983-1984, and Operation Eradicate in 19861987. Refugee testimony and eye-witness accounts smuggled out of East Timor by aid workers and clerics corroborate allegations of massive human rights violations.

Gordie Gordo arid the,G-Men:’ by John Hymers Imprint staff
The four G Men are seated casually around a glass table on which a recording device sits. “We should have worn our spandex,” guitarist Joe Delco intones. No one se&ns to agree with him, Lead man Roberto Verdecchia fondles a stool, “look, a minimalist antique turtle.” The phone rings: “probably the Prime Minister,” gro arns bassist Derek MacKinnon. Drummer Gordie Gordo, nee Gord MacKenzie, answers. “Yes, no, . . . yes; sorry you have the wrong number.” Apparently it was the Prime Minister. Gordie Gordo and the G Men have strong ties to Og Records, the unholy child of Gerard Van Herk and Tony Dewald, a duo better known as Deja Voodoo. The latest Og release, -It Came From Canada, Volume 5 features a G Men track, Catching Cows. Though it isn’t one of their stronger numbers, it should help to catapult the band into the world fame they so richly deserve. >
The exposure that It Came gives them is an incalculable asset. People seem to worship Og records: Deja Voodoo have made a career of playing lousy music, but their fan loyalty is legendary, if not scary. And other bands like Jerry Jerry and the Sons of Rhythm made a name for themselves on’Og and play to enthusiastic audiences. Yet there lies a band behind this thin veneer of the Next Big Thing; a collection of real human beings, unafraid to shed a tear, or to smile at a young babe’s joke. This is the chronicle of those mortals, of Gordie Gordo and the G Men. The G Men have played extensively around the K- W-Guelph area in the past year, opening up for such bands as the Phantoms and Deja Voodoo; they have shared the spotlight with Iocal band, the Rhinos, and headlined the recent CKMS henefit show at Taps. But, until their Dead Milkmen gig at the Bombshelter, they played to a largely inbred audience at Phil’s .Grandson’s Place. That Dead Milkmen show,

itself a boost for the band as they opened for a big band, provided the chance to open the doors to a larger audience. Open doors they did. The G Men made the most of it, and by some acounts were more entertaining than the Dead Milkmen themselves. While that may be going a little too far, they accomplished more than hold their own up on that dinky Bomber stage: they proved themselves to a crowd which did not expect the treat they.got. Yet their arrival on stage was beset by a particular malaise. The Jazz Butcher used to remark about his former guitarist, Max Eider’s, habit of getting lost in some Twilight Zone. He’d lose him for hours and had no idea where he was off to, or when he would come back. Pretty well at every gig the G Men toil through a similar phenomenon: “The thing that always happens is that two minutes before we’go on, somebody disappears. And then the rest of us sit up there and wonder what happened. Like when Joe disappeared at the Princess for about five minutes,” Roberto explains: ‘Discounting the usual disappearances before the show, Derek and Joegot lost on the way to the Bombshelter. On university property. Joe took a wrong turn and got his directions completely mixed up. He found The Bomber eventually by asking somebody how to get there, Somebody else gave him permission to drive on the sidewalk. But the best story to emerge from that show happened after the G Men had left the stage and involves a rather drunk and confused patron. In Joe’s words:
Look ma, no hands.

Well, he just happens be one of Canada’s finest singers of traditional and contempory folk songs, He has a powerful baritone voice which is strong enough to fill any concert hall and subtle enough to tug at your heart strings. He brings on stage with him six and twelve-St ring guitars, an electric guitar and the occasional violin. Although Rogers mostly performs other writers’ material, he sings as if he wrote the songs himself. He also has a reputation of having a keen ear for excellent material and is even a better arranger of music.

ARTS - __.
o.n Her Majesty’s these guys have eclectic influences. That is bound to happen whenever you have four separate souls sharing one group identity. Garage music is up there, as is Metallica. The Residents played a part and reciting the rest of the litany would &feat the purpose. However, ti Roberto says, “nothing I really like sounds like this.” The music the G Men play can best be described as inhabiting that wispy world between loud and soft, between innocent and diabolical. Their music harbours every known musical cant radiction,
makes them the entertainers they are. By refusing to adopt one style, one genre, they have the luxury of culling and molding their various influences into a sound all their own. Again, what is important is not the influence, but the result. And the resulir so far is the aforementioned cut on the Og compi-
each. But it just gets lots andlots of airplay. Number one all over Canada.” They also have a cut on the CMKS compilation, A Giant
Leap of Faith.
The Og compilation is literally just the toe in the door for the G Men. In the new year, around March, Og records will release a G Men album. At least that is the informal agreement that the two parties have reached. According to the band, the main factors affecting the disk getting into a reare actually cording studio, and, upon cornpletion, waiting for the time when og has enough capital to release it. There is no real fear that this deal will fall through. The week before the Dead Milkmen show, the G Men opened for Deja Voodoo yet again, and Gerard and Tony bade them to g’et into the studio as sobn as possible. Fortified with the facts that Deja VOOdoo loved the G Men’s demo
not exactly known for screwing up young bands and taking them for all that they are worth, it seems more than reasonable to special order the album now from your local record store. The potential for the G Men to sound great on an album is quite good, but we shouldn’t judge this from either the CKMS albumi A Giant Leap of Faith, or Og’s It Came from. Those two albums
only contain two G Men songs in total. The greatest indication of their ability to transmit their live show on to vinyl w&s the Studio-two session that they did at CKMS. This was broadcast live over the radio and they were quite powerful, even though this time they were unable to draw support or become bouyed by a crowd. And that is the essential elemen,t of a decent band. Anybody can give a good performance live if the crowd digs ‘em, and the G Men quickly align the audience ‘in their favour. But to do that on vinyl takes a witch’s brew of good songs, good musicianship, and some ie ne sais quoi that often translates into something like novelty. Not necessarily humour, but novelty in the sence of newness, of virgin ground. The G Men, whatever their future holds - as promising as it is - still have to put up with the trials and tribulations of being new kids on the block, Fr’instance, the Dead Milkmen barely talked to them. Says Joe: “most bands we’ve opened for are like the coolest people on earth. But the Milkmen only talked to us for about two minutes before their
sound check”. And when they recently opened up for the Phantoms, lead singer (and Jim Morrison look-alike) Jerome Godboo made fun of their equipment. More specifically, their tiny amps. ‘,‘~f we ever play with them again, we’re gonna rent huge stacks,” retorts Roberto. “In fact, we’ll just build a .huge cabinet and cover it up. Then we’ll grab their Marshalls and hold ‘em up and say ,‘look at these guy’s amps.’ But at least we don’t have to carry B around huge amounts of eqTh\te;iiy haven’t an equip ment m’anager. They haven’t any manager, although they could have used one in more than a few inst antes, True, t heif small and few pieces of equipment are easily carried around by them, but there have been times when they must have wished that they had somebody to help them, if only on stage. Take the example of Marty’s last year, “What about Morty’s last
year?” queries Joe. “I broke a string and then you (Roberto) broke one and then I broke one: three songs in a row. But in the whole week we broke eight strings. I broke four, he broke three and Derek broke one. Too bad it wasn’t a mystical number like nine, ‘cuz nine is-closest to G - you know, Gordie Gordo,” Truly, the G Men can afford & ’ expect a lot from the future, They are a very cohesive unit, and on stage each of them is a pillar supporting the edifice that is Gordie Gordo and the G Men. 3 They all add their two cents worth, from Derek’s demon screams and solid bass, to Roberto’s screwed up stage antics, From Joe’s wild guitar stylings, to Gord’s incessant beats. I grab my tape recorder off of the table and leave, Roberto grabs and plays around with a stool. “Look, a minimalist antique turtle.” Sure. “I guess we have weird habits; we all hang out together.” I have no idea who said that.

Public by Paul Done Imprint staff The fact that Public Enemy are even playing live again at The Twist this coming Tuesday [the 23rd) is a great surprise considering the fact that just a few months ago, the group was-said to be in an indefinite hiatus. The breakup was spurred by anti-semitic comments made in an interview by Professor Griff. After he was kicked out of the group, Chuck D. decided to temporarily disband the collective. They’re back though, and from what I’ve gather the whole posse - Griff included - is together again. Considering the radical change in their attitude toward their white audience, which was evident from their first Toronto concert to their most recent, it will be curious to see whether they have decided to try and con‘tinue the process of reconciliation‘or whether the events will foster a new militancy in their rhetoric. For a moment, let’s set aside all questions and doubts concerning Public Enemy’s contentious and occasionally inflammatory

The title track from Janet Jackson’s new album Rythym Nation sounds as though it was performed by a pit crew. You can almost picture Janet, chrome pistons where her arms should be, piledriving a pair of Simmons pads, a loudspeaker where her mouth should be, blaring, her new creed of unity through rythym. Sizzle, sizzle, whomp, whomp goes the song, roar goes the chorus, as Janet wails for the
new earth. It wouldn’t be right to say that things go downhill from there (Rhythm Nation is the first cut), but Janet and producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis never quite match the intensity of their first declaration. Intensity alone, though, does not make a great song. Witness the simmering steamhammer bass of the album’s first single, Miss You Much., which rehashes to Bood effect the lean, icy funk of Control. The first three songs on the record find Janet addressing various social issues and, unfortunately, she lapses into stilted left-wing rhetoric more than once. Thinks are made better by the end of side one, though, with Love WiII Never Do (without You), a completely winning song the likes of which Prince should be so lucky to write. Social conscience is eschewed
entirely on side two, with ~scapade, an escapist fantasy which apes Prince’s Take Me With You and the album’s best surprise, Slack Cat, a heavy metal bumpand-grind romp which could teach Lee Aaron and Robert Palmer a thing or two. v After that, though, we’re into three syrupy, stinking ballads that close the album in bad form. These ballads aren’t the, only problem: in fact,the main one is Janet’s aforementioned newfound social conscience, which tends to express itself in lumpen and corny ways, especially on stuff like Livin’ In A World (They Didn’t Make]. Many times her sentiments seem misplaced or shallow, as though she were calling for band-aid solutions when what’s really needed is more than the new order of “Music/Poetry/Dance/Unity” which she calls for. But it’s difficult to’ fault a pkrson for speaking their mind when they see things that need changing, and <ti the &&%inspire anyone to find out more about social issues, then they’ve done some good; learning is never bad. Rythym Nation is a genuine benchmark, a triumph for Jackson,’ and a resounding vindication of her association with Jam and Lewis. A wedding of technology and talent+ the album draws on a large body of funk history but nonetheless boasts a sound all its own, a whole which surpasses the sum of its parts.

themes of their songs still deal with sex, drugs and raising hell, The lyrical sophisticat ion of most of the tracks on the album leave something to be desired, but is not all bad since it gives the impression that they’re having a lot of fun.

What she’s left is a drab, but
by Moustafa Bayoumi Imprint staff She’s been called the poor man’s Tom Waits, but Rickie Lee Jones (RLJ) used to rise above such crass put downs and (almost] hold her own with her former sweetheart. But with her new slab of ll’cuts, RLJ threatens to legitimize even her most severe critics. Gone are the funky streetsmart lyrics; the clear poignant vignettes, the surrealistic journeys through her houses of id and angst - all that which was so beautifully rendered in previous efforts (Pirates, Girl at Her Volcano]. Instead the phrases ring empty, the images are hackneyed, and the language solecistic. Oh Rickie, why have you left us? What have you left us?
well-produced (all too well, probably] record [produced by Walter Becker of Steeley Dan fame) which only hints at the sly Rickie of the past, The problem is that without her previous integrity, Rickie’s idiosyncrasies become exaggerated. Her blueswoman act is unconvincing, like your . grandmother, drunk, doing her best Etta James, and her incomprehensible crooning becomes Lily Tomlin doing baby talk. It’s been a while since Rickie’s treaded down the recording waters, but the waters would have been left better undisturbed. No worry here of Rickie troubling the waters of hipdom on this effort though, the album sinks too fast.
And that’s what makes it so hard to listen to; the album is too easy to listen to. Like her last album (The Magazine), this work doesn’t push, play, or challenge anything musically or lyritally . So she’s not the poor man’s Tome Waits. No, she’s become a saccharine Tom Waits - too artificial and too easy to take and anyone who knows Tom Waits knows that it’s got to be whiskey or nothing at all.

by Rhoada Riche Imprint staff The first time I heard of the trio Scrawl was in July when my roommate Cassandra was desperately trying to find a copy of their LP He’s Drunk, The first time I actually heard the album, I was kinda disappointed. I’d heard that these Ohio gals had been opening up for fIREHOSE and the Butthole Surfers, but at first listen they sounded like Indigo Girls with lower production values! That is to say, this record
didn’t kick butt like I expected it to. But now I know better. After repeated listenings, I realized that Scrawl sound more like the Blake Babies with higher production values. Sue Harshe and Marly May’s harmonies kind of snake around like the Indigo Girls with knives. And even though there a couple of really lame tunes on this record, songs like Breaker, Breaker and Green Beer are loud, fast and good. Don’t be afraid of the all-girl
band tag& the word womb does not appear anv’where on this record. Scrawl excel1 lyrically: for ’ example, Green Beer asks the eternal questions Why is the keg always empty? Why ccln’t she ever let go of a man, and Why does she always bring her mom on the scene? Yes, songs about falling down ’ drunk and songs about leaving town and never coming back, something for fans of bands girl and boy alike.

The essential problem with the book is the character of Earl, Vera’s brother. Never seen by the reader, he takes on mythical status in the novel, as shadowy hints of his mental difficulties are dropped, and his breakdown is finally recounted during the book’s climax. Unfortunately, Earl’s breakdown occurs almost fifteen years before the book’s narrative, and the flashback is mad-

Brushes With Greatness Ed. by Russell Bunks, Michael Onduatje, and David Young Coach House Press 146 pages
by Chris Wodskou Imprint staff A couple of years ago, my roommate and I rode the campus media ticket for all it was worth and wormed our way into a record company shmoozefest with Peter Buck and Mike Mills of REM. Under the rubric of a record release party for Document, the record company wined and dined us and a spate of radio and MuchMusic types on a two-hour boat cruise around scenic Toronto harbour. Over the course of the cruise, untold buckets of beer were tossed back, and just about everyone was earnestly engaged in networking and making connections, leaving Buck and Mills sitting on the deck chatting bemusedly by themselves, whereupon my roommate and I, having no connections and even less shame, seized’ our opportunity and harangued the REM duo for an hour with effusive adulation and listened reverentially while Mike Mills waxed poetic about life in Athens, Georgia and Peter Buck pontificated about the virtues of Canadian beer. My sistbr has had several conversations with no less a celebrity than Don Cherry. And when my dad was a teenager, he literally bumped into Wild Bill Ezinicki, who twice led’the NHL in pedty minutes in the ‘40’s, at the Maple Leaf Gardens concession stand. The point of all this is that meetings with celebrities are not remarkably unique or rare; the
strength of a compendium of anecdotes about ordinary folk holding court with the glitterati rests in the quality of the writing and the interest/hurfiour factor of the stories, not in namedropping big stars in the “I served Sammy Davis Jr. a Super Big Gulp at 7-11 in Cheektowaga” vein. Brushes With Greatness, re: leased with considerable hoopla by Coach House and notable at least in part due to the stature enjoyed by co-editors Russell Banks and Michael Ondaatje, thankfully avoids this pitfall. But it does not always live up to its subtitle, “An Anthology of Chance Encounters with Celebrities”; stories of paparazzi-style stake-outs at a hotel where John Lennon stayed smack a little too much of calculation to qualify as “chance mettings.” There is also a little tod much gushing; this is understandable since it stands to reason that if one is going to write about an encounter with someone, it’s going to be someone who means a lot to that person. But such excessive reverence-tend6 ta belo& on a reader with limited knowledge of that figure, Even the story about one.Ghloe Lietzke attending an Elvis concert seems almost a bad parody of Elvis fans: “For days following I was still in a dream world, one like I have never experienced since. I wanted time to stand still, because each day I was farther from Elvis.” One can only expect a certain unevenness when there are some seventy vignettes in Brushes With Greatness, but some of the stories are truly memorable, foremost among these being Gary R. Edwards’ recounting of his encounters with Colonel Sanders. Seems that Edwards’ family owned a Kentucky Fried

Another personal favourite would have to be Sharon Thesen, whose sublime entry is, in its entirety, “I once lived with a man whose ex-wife had an affair with Sonny Bono.” Definite grounds for divorce. The majority. of anecdotes offer light and usually entertaining reading, but at their best, are also concise, personal glimpses of people like Argetine writer Jorge Luis Borges, Desmond Tutu, T.S.

To read of Jayne Mansfield flirting with a shoe store clerk seems almost fictitious; to give scenesfrom the life of an icon seems almost unreal, but oddly charming. in spite of its flaws, Brushes With Greatness maintains that charm through most of the vignettes, however self-gratifying and gushing they may be at times.

PRET-ENDERS to CO,NTENDERS Warriors
upset Laurier - afte,rshocks felt
by Rich Nichol Inlprint stuff . For the last 18 years the Waterloo football ‘teams have bowed to their city rivals+ Laurier, in the OUAA Westhell the Warriors no longer have to hang their heads in shame on University Avenue because the new and improved team squeaked past their counterparts 7-6 last Saturday before a near capacity crowd of 4200 fans. The win extends Waterloo’s phenominal winning streak to three games, a great turnaround from a record 33 game losing skid. This puts the Warriors in a three way tie for the fourth and last playoff spot, sharing 3-3 records with Laurier and Windsor. The big story this season was just going to be a possible Waterloo win, That has now grown into.a chance for UW to make the playoffs. Here is the situation Waterloo is in. The Warriors must beat Windsor this Saturday. This would put Waterloo at 4-3 and eliminate the Lancers from the playoffs with a record of 3-4. Toronto is at 4-3 right now and meets up with Laurier this weekend to decide the Hawks fate. If Laurier wins then Waterloo, Laurier, and Toronto would all be deadlocked in third place with 4-3 records. In situations like this when there is a tie for a playoff spot, teams are ranked first by head-to-head play and then points-for minus pointsagainst differentials. Head-tohead, each team cancels each other out; Laurier beat Toronto, Toronto defeated Waterloo, and Waterloo edged Laurier. So the tie is still unsolved. zBut when you apply the differential, Toronto would take third place overall in the OUAA West and Laurier would take the final playoff spot in fourth, leaving the Warriors [who hold high points-against numbers) out of a ‘playoff berth. So two things have to happen to get the Warriors into post-season play: Waterloo must beat Windsor at Seagram Stadium, and Toronto must beat Laurier at Varsity Stadium.

The drive included 5 first downs on 17 plavs and covered 161 yards. Big yardage gains were collected on running plays by Chartier and passes to rookie halfback T.J. Diehl. On the final play of the drive from the Laurier 24 yard line, Lenart passed the ball up the middle fairly ‘deep to Chartier who carried it in for the major at 3:48. Since the score was now 7-6 for Waterloo, the Warrisrs decided to go for a two point convert that, if successful, would limit a possible Laurier field goal to just a tie rather than a lead. The overanxious Warriors were called offside on the convert attempt and the score remained 7-6.
Tchir tried a 44 yard field goal attempt with three, minutes left but the 1ball sailed just slightly wide right of the uprights. Finally, with 0:Ol on the clock and Laurier on 3rd and 7 at their own 37 yard line, it was do or die for the Hawks. Every back and receiver scampered deep and Laurier quarterback Ian MacKenzie overshot the intended receiver, and the Warrior fans began to spill onto the field. The statistical summaries were too small and pathetic to put down here. The Ray Owens Memorial Award is given to the MVP of the game for each team, in honour of the former Waterloo Ombudsman. This years awards were given to Waterloo halfback Tom Chartier and Laurier linebacker Ron VanMoerkerke. Each plaiyer received an honourary plaque and had their names engraved in the large permanent plaque which hangs in the Ombudsman’s office. Waterloo’s chance at a playoff spot comes tomorrow (Saturday) against Windsor at 2:OOpm at Seagram Stadium. “It’s not going to be easy against Windsor,” commented Knight “Windsor plays a tough game, but we’ve got the momentum and are within striking distance of a playoff berth.”

UW thumpsYork by Rich Nichol Imprint staff It wasn’t the most exciting game in Warrior basketball history, but Waterloo started its exhibition schedule with an 88-59 lambasting of the York Yeomen last Friday (October 13) before a crowd of just under 1006 at the PAC. The contest was filled with sloppy passes, steals, air balls (some that even missed the backboard), and unchallenged shots, all typical elements of #two teams’ first game of the year. “Both teams were fairly green as is understandable, but des,pite the inexperience of our five rookies, we wore them (York) down quite effectively,” said Warrior head coach Don McCrae, “I played everybody at different times in the game and the guys worked well together despite all the combinations of lines. We have got a long way to go yet and I’m glad we have three more months to work with before league play starts.” Waterloo dominated all aspects of the game. The Warriors ruled the paint, out-rebounding the Yeomen an astounding 3716, with high numbers by rookies John Hamilton and Mike Duarte, Waterloo also moved the

Pond hockey g.old) by Andrew Kinross Imprint staff 1 Another, weekend tournament, another hockey victory. The Warrior ice hockey team skated off with their secoid tournament championship in as many weeks, this time capturing the 5th Annual Western Mustang Hockey Tournament held at IJWO in London. In many respects, the tournament outcome was almost a carbon copy of the Oktoberfest Invitatibnal held last week here at Waterloo. The Warriors ousted Guelph in a shootout 7-6 in the first round of play, and then went on to outclass our preppy -_ - neighbours, Western, 5-1 in the championship game. The tournament was the last game situation for the Warriors before the regular season begins and left the team’s exhibition record at 5-2. However, with veterans in the lineup, the team’s record is unblemished with five straight wins. The Warriors went up against the Guelph Gryphons for the third time this year on Saturday afternoon and the two teams ended up stalemated after regulation time, 4-4. A shootout followed a five-minute sudden death overtime period where neither team succeeded in notching the winner. In the shootout, players from either team skated simultaneously with the puck from centre ice toward opposite goaltenders. lim David and John Goodman scored on their shots to put Waterloo out in front 2-0 in the shootout. Guelph narrowed the lead to one with a goal on the fourth shot. On the fifth and final shot, the Guelph shooter raced down the ice and scored to even
away 31 shots. Johnny-on-thespots for the Warriors were John Goodman, John Williams, John Dietrich, and Tony Crisp. In the championship game against Western, the Warriors consistently dominated play for two periods, built up an insurmountable lead, and then coasted to victory. A pleased, yet reserved Don McKee, head coach of the Warriors, commented that the team was getting some welcome breaks. “We’re not blessed with a whole lot of scoring power . . . but the puck seems to be going in the net for us.” Tony Crisp, flanked by linemates John Goodman and Jamie Maki, paced the Warriors with two goals. In the second period, Crisp broke in on a two-on-two rush and scored probably the prettiest goal. He cut in behind a Mustang defenceman, waiting
for the goalie to commit himself before tucking the puck in the open net. McKee said, “John Goodman was playing with an awful lot of desire.” He added that Goodman, as always, helped the team with strong checking and leadership. McKee was happy that Crisp was a “real offensive threat -all weekend long” for both tournaments. Crisp, who contributed three goals and one assist over two games, was selected as MVP for the tournament. Mike Bishop was between the posts for Waterloo in the final game and he along with his strong defence held the Mustangs from several good scoring opportunities.’ First year student Steve Schaefer, who McKee praised as a promising rookie, has decided to leave the Warriors and play with the Elmira.

Win clinches semi-final ehomefie-ld
Ruggbrs rollercoaster by Peter Brown Imprint staff
It was a wild win in a wild wind. The Waterloo Warrior Rugby team clinched a playoff berth and homefield advantage for at least one game with their strange 16-13 victory over the visiting McMaster Marauders. Why strange? Well, whether it was Indian summer or the greenhouse effect, it was a bit warmer than classic rugby weather. Some turbulent wind cooled off the pitch by the end of the game, however. The other strange thing was that the Warriors’ usual pattern of winning wasn’t followed. Instead of gradually gaining momentum and playing more cohesively later rather than sooner, the hdme side rode a rollercoaster, intense and surehanded at some times and flat and tentative at others. They showed flashes of briiliance between muddled mental lapses, and the flashes and some solid teamwork were enough to win, giving them a 5-1 record to remain in second place in Division One. Paul Toon and Marc Cahoon again played excellent games, with Hayden Belgrave also standing out and Michael Fischer giving his usual solid performance. This match started out much like so many of this season’s games: slow and sloppy. Soon McMaster emerged as the dominant team, though Waterloo threatened at least twice. On both occasions, it was Warrior Cahoon who was near the ball. Once, Cahoon targeted t he ball like a missile, kicking it away from a couple of Marauders and almost collecting it for a try. Unfortunately, he could not get a handle on the piece of leather and Mac regained possession. Waterloo soon turned to the right page of its usual script, and finally began to consolidate its game by 25 minutes in. Again they threatened in the Mac end, and forced a penalty. Darren Wilton made the kick for post, and Waterloo had struck first to lead 3-0. This kick seemed to wrench the Marauders’ collective fingers from the dike, as the Warriors increased their intensity and sensed that

McMaster kicked off to begin play again, and a Warrior-controlled ruck followed. In classic textbook fashion, Steve Slater passed the ball out to the Waterloo wingers, who were running well by this stage, The ball made it out to-Michael Fischer, who rounded the corner and sped down the sideline, eventually kicking it forward when he had run out of ‘room. It was a useful kick, almost making it to the McMaster *tryline. Excellent Waterloo support arrived, and a hot-potato scramble carried the ball into the endzone. Slater snatched it from the air, and dropped for the try. Wilton added the conversion, and Waterloo now led 9-o. This score held until halftime, with Waterloo still in control of the momentum. The. second half opened with Waterloo still pressing, and soon McMaster had been forced into surrendering another penalty. The location of this foul was certainly in Mac’s favour, though. It was well to the left side of the field, giving Waterloo a difficult angled kick attempt. The placement didn’t faze Wilton, and the Warrior kicker made another highlight film boot, putting the ball above the crossbar and inside the right upright by a
couple of feet. This score extended UW’s lead to 12-O. The Marauders now realized that they had to make something happen, to try to wrest the mo: mentum from the steady Warriors. First, they noticed that the referee was not calling offside infractions, especially on rucks

The convert failed from a near impossible angle, and Waterloo’s lead had been reduced to a surmountable five points, 12-7. Mac could win with a converted try, an entirely plausible event, given Waterloo’s loss of poise. The UW side was showing frustration at Mac’s rough play and the reluctance of the official to make routine offside calls, Some careless tackles by the Warriors gave Mac what they wanted: opportunities. But they failed to capitalize on them, missing two penalty kicks in close succession. The official missed a Mac forward pass, and then added injury to insult by calling Waterloo for a high tackle. Another chance and another miss for Mac, not successful at kicking so far in the game. By the midway point of the second half, the game had reached a transition point again. One sensed that McMaster could not keep squandering chances or that Waterloo had to stop their careless errors. The only question was which would happen first. In one of their flashes of brilliance, it was the Warriors, And the inside men and backs, running strong again, made it happen. # Ralph Engels passed to Hayden Belgrave, who took the ball confidently for his best run of the day. He passed to Marc Cohoon, who raced down the sideline untouched for an exhilarating try. The convert was missed, and the Warriors were now ahead 16-7. This was a vitally important score, as the Warriors reverted to their lack of defensive concentration a few minutes later. McMaster pressed late in the game, and scored a try off of a strum dkep in UW territory just before the finishing whistle. A breakdown in Waterloo’s concentration and the official’s reluctance to curb McMaster’s aggressive rucking again led to the sloppy score by Marauder Grahame Walsh. Beames kicked the convert, but the whistle ended Mac’s hop& of a comeback; the game ended 16-13 for Waterloo. Waterloo and Queen’s, who posted a 19-13 weekend victory over York, have identical 5-1 records, but the Golden Gaels hold top spot by virtue of their win over Waterloo earlier this season. So, it looks like UW will host only the semi-final game on October 28 against either Western, McMaster, or York. The Mustangs, 3-3, hold a onepoint lead over the other two schools for third place in Division One and the last playoff spot. But, they play Queen’s in the final week, making their prospects bleak. McMaster and York play each other, meaning that one of the two will probably be Waterloo’s opponent on October 28. Queen’s will host the winner of Division Two, either Laurier or RMC, in the other semi-final game. The winner of that game, regardless of who it is, will host the OUAA final on the following Saturday, November 4. The Warriors can still win the division with a win and a Queen’s loss tomorrow (Saturday] to Western, but the latter is not something to count on. If Waterloo and Queen’s advance to the final, it would be a rematch of last year, won by the Gaels 20-3, The Warriors’ last provincial championship was in 1985.

Soccer Athenas shut out top opponents by Lynn Hoyles Imprint staff In the continuing battle to make the playoffs, the Athena soccer team faced two equally determined opponents this past week: Wilfrid Laurier on October 11 and Windsor on October 14. Any game against WLU has that added intensity from our rivalry over the years, and the Athenas were psyched for this game. The first half started slowly, with both teams content to play cautious soccer, but the Waterloo squad picked up the pace and started to force Laurier in the midfield. Right-winger Catherine Hollifield laid a cross-over in front of the Laurier keeper and Anita Toogood, this week’s female athlete of the week, was there to connect with a firsttouch shot that seemed to rock WLU back onto their heels. The second half belonged to the Waterloo squad as they won the ball consistently at every position. Two Waterloo natives combined for the second goal as centre forward Leanne Wiens broke through Laurier’s fullbacks on a two-on-one. She coolly drew the remaining defenders to her and then laid an angled ball to her left for Toogood, whio finished the play with her right foot to Wat&loo go up by z-o.
Laurier pressed forward on the attack -and Waterloo’s fullbacks and midfielders, along with keeper Tammi Winchester, -shut them down. Waterloo has taken three out of four points against WLU, a team ranked from the start of the seasonin the CIAU’s top ten. Qn Saturday, Windsor had the long bus ride up to the Athenas home field. Against an always speedy and hard-tackling Lancer team, Waterloo did not take anything for granted, pressing from the opening kickoff. The menacing weather that hit points east of here passed over the field in the first half, and with it gone, Waterloo started to score. Centre forward Laurie Whyte notched her third goal of the season, eluding the charging Windsor keeper to push the ball into the net on a through ball from Anita Toogood. Then centre forward Wiens repeated the play, taking the bail from their backs, and used her great hustle and speed to beat the keeper and pick up her second goal of the regular season. The final goal came when a long pass by midfielder Kerry Jameson (using Mr. Left) connected wit6 Toogood, who beat the Windsor fullback and cracked a shot high into the net, off of the underside of the crossbar. The final score was Athenas 3, Windsor 0. Keeper Winchester continues to be steady in net, well up nn

The big trade of 89
Will Walker bring Vi.kings Super Bowl? by Al Folliott Imprint staff When the National Football League’s Minnesota Vikings traded for Pro Bowl running back Herschel Walker last week, they took an enormous gamble. They gave up ,a great deal for a chance at the Super Bowl in the next four years. Viking general manager Mike Lynn has responded to his critics by saying, “This trade is going to be successful if we win the Super Bowl while Herschel Walker is a member of this team.” If Minnesota goes nowhere with Walker, the trade will be considered a bust.
How much of a risk did they actually take? How much of a risk did they actually take.7 A closer look would suggest that they didn’t give up as much as people think in return for the one thing they needed most: a potent rushing attack. The Vikes gave up defensive end Alex Stewart, running back Darrin Nelson, cornerback Isaac Halt, and linebackers David Howard and JesseSolomon in return for Walker. Solomon was the only player who was a starter in Minnesota. He will be missed, but is being replaced by an excellent linebacker in Ray Berry. Nelson has seen limited playing time this
year and is no longer needed with the acquisition of Walker. Howard and Holt should both be successful in Dallas but had little room to move up on the Minnesota roster. Holt was playing behind all-pro Carl Lee, while Howard backed up Mike Merriweather. Stewart was a reserve on one of. the best defensive lines in the league and probably won’t play much in Dallas. The Cowboys also will receive several top draft picks in the next few years. These are draft picks that the Vikings can afford to give up. For one, being a Super Bowl contender, the draft picks are not going to be very high. Also, these players would have a difficult time cracking the starting lineup in Minnesota with their solid roster. Quarterback Tommy Kramer is the only front-line player over age 30, so it should be a few years before a significant number of starting positions are available. All of the players and draft picks the Vikings gave up will be missed, but Minnesota should be able to get by without them. In Walker, the Vikings have received a player who is one of the NFL’s best running backs. In the past few years, their biggest weakness has been a consistent running game. Walker automatically gives them this. His presence will attract a lot of attention from opposing defences, which will help open things up for Anthony Carter, one of the most

He gives the Vikings the one thing that has separated them from recent NFL champions: a dominant running back. The other ingredients have been there for the last two years, and Walker may very like*ly be the final piece in their puzzle.

The 1989 championships will be held October 28 at Queen’s, and the Athenas must take first or second to qualify for the CIAU championship race. A big reason for the resurgence has been the dynamic duo of Lisa Laffradi and Jill Francis. They were two of the four runners named to the team earlier this month.

Leading candidates include Marci Aitken and Ingrid Vanderschot. Both are in second year, and both, like Calder and McLaren, have shown massive improvement since starting training in September.

Field hockey winding down by Kendra Mazzei Imprint staff
The Athena Field Hockey team travelled to London October 14 to challenge the Western Mustangs and the University of York Yeomen. It was a successful meet for the Athenas, who tied Western and lost to the Yeomen by two. Although they came away without a win, the Waterloo players showed a marked improvement on both an individual and a team level. In the first game, the Athenas attempted to shut down the Mustangs on their home field by playing with their strong forward line. This effort on attack was sustained throughout the first half as the Athenas put to use the cutting skills they had honed during their pre-game practices. Despite this display of mental and physical amelioration, the Athenas failed to score in the first half. Although the Mustangs were able to get a few good shots away, Athena goalie ]ennifer Murray put out her kickers to stymie the ball. The second half went very much like the first; both teams worked hard to score the first goal. Neither team was successful and the game ended in a O-O draw. In thiir second game of the day, the Athenas tackled a fresh York squad. York took full advantage of Waterloo’s fatigue, scoring twice in the first half. For this second game, Coach Judy McCrae made a few

The second half proved to be the most effective for the Athenas, as they shut down the Yeomen and prevented further scoring (much to York’s dismaYIThe game became extremely antagonistic as York’s frustration escalated. Both sides had close calls at the net, yet neither were able to add to the score. The game was concluded in a 2-Owin for the Yeomen. Overall, the Western league is at a standstill in terms of rankings, as Western and Guelph still have three league games remaining. The Athenas will still be able to qualify for the OWIAA if they defeat Guelph and keep the University pf Toronto Blues from maintaining a large goal differential on Qctober 21 at Lamport Stadium in Toronto. The Athenas are looking forward to playing on Toronto’s fast turf, where they will be able to utilize their strong, fast players. ATHENA

First loss . for Streaking tennis team by Marcela Krajny Imprint staff
The Athena tennis team’s winning streak finally came to an end last weekend. Saturday morning, October 14, the team was a little late in waking up and lost to Queen’s, last year’s gold medal winners. Only Mary Mathers was able to hold up her end and win her three-set match 6-1, l-6, 6-3, giving Waterloo one match in their 8-l loss. Still recovering from their team loss, the Athenas then took on McMaster, who beat them 54. Paula Hadden and Shanika DeAlwiss had a close three-set match, but McMaster’s cheering was much more obnoxious than Waterloo’s support and the frustrated doubles team lost. Waterloo made up for it at
York. Two team losses were enough for the Athenas, so Sunday night they avenged themselves as they shot down York 6-0, winning all of their singles matches. Paula Hadden wiped her opponent off of the court 6-2,6-l, and the team cheered on Karen Banko to her three-set victory. The next tournament will be held on our own tennis courts at the Waterloo Tennis Club (inside the bubble) tomorrow, October 21. Waterloo is scheduled to play singles against Toronto at 9 a.m. and Western at 11. The doubles will be played in the afternoon. Yes, there is a football game Saturday afternoon+ and the balcony of the tennis club offers a great viewt So come on out and cheer for the Athenas - you can watch football between the sets!

Campus Recreation’s fall programs have attracted more than 14,000 students! Over 4,600 students are registered in competitive and recreation leagues. To date, we have had 23 men’s slo-pitch, 24 mixed slo-pitch, and 12 hardball teams registered in tournament play. There are over 2,100 people registered in 40 instructional programs, interest being particularly high in fitness classes, social dance, raquet sports, and CPR. Due to increased interest in Outers, badminton, rowing, skiing and weight-training+ club memberships total well over 1,200. It is estimated that over 5,000 people each week use the C-R facilities, including the PAC, Columbia Icefield, and Waterloo Tennis Club, for their own self-directed recreation . University of Waterloo’s Campus Recreation is glad that so many students are seeking alternatives in their lifestyle It is a credit to the meager but efficient and dedicated staff, the nearly 400 student leaders of C-R, and the staff of the Athletic Department, from executive administration to facility operations, that make it all possible. From the student in me, thank you. From the student assistant in me, thanks to all the students who make Campus Ret programs as fun, exciting, and rewarding as they qre. My hat goes off to all of you.
