BIG TENT RETURNS

The key issue facing the university leaders today is the “criof dwindling financial support in the 1970s and 198os,” UW President Dr. Wright told a crowd of several hundred on Jansis
1/ Few students -showed up for the t:alk, which was billed as a state’ of the university address L and answer sesLand question -sion.’ Wright spoke for 45 min, utes, and answered questions for another 45. . He; said the university administraiion is “outraged by such matters as the recent grant announcement.” In early December, Ontario universities were given an eight per cent increase in university funding. However, Wright says this really only represents an actual increase of about 2.5 per cent. Three per cent of this money is intended as an offset for higher taxes and levies. The increase also includes three per cent for accessibility, which Wright questioned. He said it is important, but not clearly defined: ‘*accessibility by whom, and to what?” ’ Wright is concerned that fund+ ing tied
,. has led to Ontario universities f accepting f ar more students than i should actually be here. 1 e.. I “I do not believe that it is nei‘cessary in a democracy to penal&‘*qChievement and reward mediodr’ity,” he said. 1, Wright cited Ontario universities as having a first-year acceptance rate of almost 30 per cent of those people in “the relevant age group. The level of estimated
provincial funding available per year for these students is $4,250, as compared to $5,910 for students in Ontario colleges, and $7,050 for high school students.
Wright is planning to be heavily involved in UW’s next fundraising campaign. This campaign is intended to be one of the largest UW has carried out, and he believes “it is vital that the president of* the university play a central and leading role in ii.”
As far as tuition goes, he continues to favour increases, along with increased access to student loans and grants. He argues that studies have shown that universities
transferring a substantial amount of money from less wealthy families to subsidize more wealthy ones. On the issue of private research funding, Wright said Canadian universities only derive five per cent of their research budgets from industry. “While such support is welcome, it can never provide more than a small proportion of the research funding needed,” he said. Those researchers who are funded by industry are -also the university’s strongest, ones which attract industry support after receiving heavy government funding. Professor Len Guelke, president of the faculty association, threw several tough, accusatory questions Wright’s way. He expressed concern over the Fourth Decade Report, the university’s long range planning report published in 1987, which he alleged was not completed with enough consultation with professors. Wright answered that “it may not be perfect, but it represented a very, very broad consultation, and as far as I can tell, a consensus.” Guelke ‘also questioned Wright’s and other senior leadership, saying they did not try to get professors involved. He used as an example the faculty of arts council meeting during which the Fourth Decade report was discussed, which was poorly attended by professors.
Wright offered to “come and take attendance at the arts faculty council,” and that he “couldn’t answer for Guelke’s colleagues who don’t attend council meetings.” Guelke is also concerned that senior university administrators are too removed from and therefore not accountable enough to the professorate. Recent publication of the terms and conditions of senior administrators at the University of Guelph has him upset, as he told Imprint prior to the talk. He says the Guelph president’s salary is $173,000, plus various perks. UW won’t release Wright’s salary. Guelke feels that such a highly-paid person is no longer in the same class with or &answerable to professors. “Isn’t it time we moved back to a situation where the leaders of our universities were professors with ordinary terms and conditions of employment?” he asked. Wright countered that he believes he is the “only academic in a senior post who is not currently active in teaching and research.” He continued that “all my colleagues are active professors who also hold these jobs on a part-time basis. They don’t see themselves, (and) I don’t see them as being separate from the professorate.” Recent senior appointments include former head of biology and dean of science Roger Downer as vice-president, university development, and dean of math Jim Kalbfleisch as associate provost for academic affairs. In response to concerns that there are, besides Dorothy Battae, who was recently appointed UW’s treasurer, no senior women administrators, Wright said that he could not promote women if no qualified candidates put themselves forward. He hopes in the future there will be more women to promote.

Waterloo student and new Ontario Federation of Students chair Tim Jackson asked Wright if he was willing to approach the provincial government himself on funding questions. The Council of Ontario Universities, an organization made up of Ontario university presidents, has failed to organize a “general, continuing political campaigri” Wright said during his speech. Wright answered that he & ready has done some camp&& ing, and intends to do rnor&* Provincial Premier David Pe terson, and Tom Conway, minister of colleges and universities, have acknowledged to the president that it is hypocritical to create a premier’s council on science -and technology on one hand, but continue to underfund universities on the other. Research funding has increased dramatically in the past few years, Wright said, but basic operating grants have not. He believes the politicians have made decisions partially based on “political expediency.”
Car owners beware: security
Wright also reiterated his interest in joint researdh projects bet ween the faculties of environmental studies, engineering and science, an opportunity he sees as unique in Canada as so few undergraduate environmenta studies programs exist. Expounding on the possibility of in-depth undergraduate studies of specific environmental problems on our campus, such as food.. ,Waste, he concbded that th$&&$‘many wayg in which th&Mversity could *et an ex2 am&e by its own be . @3ur*‘I.. 1x B&h during his a lrl ress and the question period, wright expressed his interest in meeting with university community members.

This week alone, about 250 to 300 tickets have been written, and about 100 cars have actually been towed. Approximately 10,000 to 12,000 tickets are written per year, with another 2,000 to 3,000 cars towed. Security

And for those of you who remember the good old days when a tow only cost $18 (less than the $25 ticket), prices have gone up: straight tows cost $30; if a dolly isrequired, an additional $10 is charged; the overnight fee is another $5; and if the truck operator is called after hours, expect to dish out an extra $15.

speak by Kim Speers Women’s Issues
Yet, these actions have become a play day for the media and for those who do not agree with the progressive actions being undertaken. Anti-feminist backlash is becoming quite evident, indeed popular within certain groups, even at the University of Waterloo. Susan Cole, a Toronto-based feminist and founder of Broadside magazine will be, coming to UW to speak about the myths of sexual equality and how the experience of inequality is still pervasive for women in our society. While speaking,
The feminist movement is alive and kicking at the University of Waterloo; as it is, in fact, at most universities across Canada. Through pay equity programs, affirmative ’ action initiatives, increased safety services on campuses and the rernoval of blatantly discriminatory events or materials, the fruition of the quest for equality between the sexes is becoming more and mcwe conceivable. UWlVEtilTY
Cole will be focusing her speech on the inequalities which exist on university campusus across Canada. Cole states ‘that her political position stems from “a body of ideas that understands that the most important social, political and economical relationship in society is the relationship between the sexes, and notices that the relationship is unequal. A feminist is someone who wants to do something to change that.” Much is to begained from this enlightening and entertaining,
located The Ontario C-
charismatic speaker. Sexism is a problem for both males and females and the only way to combat the problem is if both sexes agree to work together to fashion a solution. Susan Cole will be speaking on February 1, at 7:30 pm at the Davis Centre, room 1305. Tickets are $4 for students and $5 for non-students. They can be purchased at the Federation of Students’ Office in the Campus Centre. For ftirther information, contact Kim Speers at 885-1211

El Sal-vador a terror state The Treasury Police torture their prisoners. Had she not been a foreigner working with Peace Brigades International, had the Canadian government not pressured President Christiani directly, twice, to release her, had she not been a North American, Karen Ridd, she admits, might well have been dead. So many with whom she had worked had been disappeared, tortured, found dead. As it was, she was beaten. In El Salvador the army has a government and it has its death squads. In El Salvador, the United States has built an army: over$1.5 million in military aid each day since the beginning of the last decade. Why call it aid? More than 7o,o0o Salvadoran people have been aided to their deaths. Karen Ridd expressed her sorrow: her sorrow that it was she who had to tell this story, when so many Salvadorans had been crying out for years. The murder of six Jesuit priests by the armed forces in November, just before Ridd was arrested in a San Salvador church, worries some of the powerful in Washington: the “consensus on El Salvador as a democratic success story” [Globe and Mail January l3,1990) is threatened. A democratic success indeed: it is illegal not to vote; before elections opposition candidates and supporters receive death threats, turn up in ditches, tortured, the ballot boxes are made of clear plastic, if the army finds that you have not voted, then they can send you to jail, maybe the Treasury Police. Little wonder the main opposition , boycotts the vote. This elite consensus means one thing: it does not matter that El Salvador is an anti-democratic terror state, it does not matter that unionists, students, human rights and church workers are systematically disappeared, tortured and assassinated as a matter of government policy; all that matters is that the powerful agree to define the country as a democracy, naming its official enemies and supporting its patriotic, democratic, war criminals. The powerful in Washington. The echo from Ottawa. Roberto D’Aubuisson, who founded the ARENA party that now governs El Salvador, masterminded the assassination of Oscar Romero, Arch-Bishop of San Salvador. D’Aubuisson received his training from Klaus Barbie, the “Butcher of Lyons,” the Nazi who sent thousands of Jews to their deaths in France. After the war, Barbie was employed by the CIA to infiltrate the French and West German communist parties. Witha helping hand, he finally set up shop in South America. No coincidence. Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay. Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic . . . Canada renewed aid to El Salvador in 1986, citing an improvement in the human rights situation. Fewer disappearances, tortures. Fewer bombings of civilian populations from air force planes: less strafing from army helicopters. Canada maintained that aid - around $s million each year throughout 1987 and 1988, even after death squad activity had doubled over the previous year. Aid has been suspended, for now, since the fighting last November. Karen Ridd sees the only solution to the war in non-violent means: negotiation between the government and the FMLN, an end to U.S. military “aid.” In the United States in November, hundreds of citizens were arrested in acts of non-violent resistance to the war their country is waging against the people of El Salvador, people who are poor because they have been impoverished. In Canada many have been arrested resisting our government’s complicity in that war and its silence on American intervention. A weapons fair in Ottawa last May, ARMX, invited officials from the Salvadoran Armed Forces: hundreds of people blocked the gates. In November 1988, 25 were arrested on Remembrance Day for participating in another Alliance for Non-Violent Action blockade of the Department of External Affairs over Canadian aid to El Salvador. The judge found all of us guilty. He gave some two months jail, some of US one year’s probation. They call it “aid.” Aid should help, Thousands more in Canada have written letters, spoken with MPs, signed petitions, organized demonstrations, attended educational events, travelled to El Salvador, joined the Peace Brigades, prayed and wept and wondered why. And yet the repression intensifies. ARENA recently passed new anti-terrorist laws that make criminal almost any anti-government activity. A campaign of repression against the church and against foreigners is escalating. The real iron curtain is falling again, muting the screams of those people trapped ‘in a death chamber impdged upon them by a consensulr of North American elites who hear only English and see only white and green. But all the bullshit and the distance vanishes when one Salvadoran man tells me quietly: “I will never let pass an opportunity to speak about El Salvador.” And everything I understand is contained in his words. Karen Ridd tells of a Salvadoran friend, asked how he manages to continue: “despair is a first world luxury,‘+ he says. 3:+. The El Salvador information office can be contacted at 743-5481. Marc
The train was nine hours late... The train was nine hours late, but we didn’t mind. As it rolled along the rails, through Thunder Bay, through Winnipeg, through Regina, we phoned the station every hour for the recorded arrival message. In the final hour we threw our bags in the back of the car 2nd’ drove through the darkness,heading for the base of the Calgary Tower. From there we descended into the concrete of the station to find a crowd< all waiting for the Canadian One to come in. We could understand why it was late; the weather had been so cold we had decided not to go skiing a day earlier, and these trains always seem to slow in the cold. One train arrived at the coast a full day late. We wondered if that meant it was that day’s train or the previous day’s. On board at last, we stowed our luggage in our roomette. What was a roomette anyway, we had wondered when booking our ticketjr. We found it to be a most generous term for a bunk. In the observation car the Rockies loomed above us, shining with the snow. We gazed out as the train rocked us slowly back and forth until we could no longer stay awake. Back in our bunk, we listened to the excited children across the hall try and arrange where their parents would sleep. We kept the blind open, so we could look out at the great expanse of sky. Finally the children drifted off, and so did we. I slept lightly, constantly aware that we were moving through the night. I didn’t want to miss anything. As a child, I had fallen asleep with thoughts of sleeping in a moving train; now it was happening. The next day, we ate our pancakes while passing through SyI camous. Later, in the observation

What w-erg Ridpath’s To the editor, I would like to point out several mistakes made in the Confrontation 90 analysis from the January 19 Imprinf. Dr. Ridpath was totally misrepresented by Bob Rae and the authors of this article. They may think they dismantled Dr. Ridpath’s arguments, but first we must set the record straight as to what his arguments were. The argument that Dr. Ridpath put forward is a complex integration of concepts from what reality is (metaphysics), how can man gain knowledge of it (epistomolgy), what man should do in life (ethics), and what is the proper social relationship between men (politics). Only a brief outline of these ideas can be presented in an 18 minute opening statement, however that does not make the ideas any less valid. In the analysis, Hollands and Clifton state that Dr. Ridpath argued that since only individuals are the ultimate value or aim of a moral system, therefore capitalism is the only moral system. They left out the arguments regarding the evil of the initiation of physical force, the proper concept of man’s rights, and that the only way to uphold those rights is a laissez-faire capitalist government consisting of the police, the courts, and the anned forces. Dr. Ridpath does not believe that philosophy is separate from realiv per se. His entire presentation was argued from the fact that reality is objective, man’s reason is his means of grasping reality and hence his
means of survival, etc. This is a realityoriented philosophical argument. The three issues that were’ supposedly not answered by Dr. Ridpath were most definitely answered and the case for the answer was outlined in his opening. (i) “Is society an accident or a property of human nature?” Dr. Ridpath does not suppose that life should be fulfilled in isolation from society, but that the individual is the only entity with the faculty of reason and must be left alone to think and act as he chooses. It is his choice whether he lives alone or trade with others, and
he must not be forced to do so by others or the government. (ii) “What are the limits of ownership in a rational and free society?” If someone owns property of any kind, then he can use it and dispose of it as he chooses as long as he doesn’t violate the rights of others. There are no limits of ownership. (iii) “What is the rational basis for the assumption thatall human beings are essentially good?“&. Ridpath did not say that people are good because it is rational to be so. The main premise of capitalism is not that people essentially good Rather, are capitalism is based on the fact that
arguments? man’s means of survival is his reason. People are free to think and act in any way they like so long as they do not initiate physical force against others (i.e., violate their individual rights). As for Mr. Rae’s arguments, it was clear from the debate and the Imp& analysis that he had none. He was invited to argue’ for a moral system and instead presented us with an emotional appeal interspersed with quips and jokes. He asserted that we all have a mutual obligation to one another, that we should love each other, that altruism is moral, that everyone has a right to education and health, etc., but he never once
offerred an argument for those claims. I suggest that anyone who didn’t see the debate or is now confused about the ideas presented by Dr. Ridpath, come to the showing of the debate on videotape next term, and read Ayn Rand’s works, The Virtue of SelJishne;rs and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, or come to the next meeting of the Students of Objectivism on February 6,199O at x:xx pm, in AL 212.

Belief needs commitment To the editor, I am writing to comment on the l&tter wriUen by Allen Chen in the January 5 issue of Imprint. My comment is that Chen should be more aware of what he is addressing because Itis ideas are faulty* For example: he was irritated by the letter in the December 1 Imprint &awe “it innocently started 0Gt as a letter of concern regarding the issue and we should ofcultsoncampus... ail be aware of it” and ended up
“pTeachine about Christianity.” He was “sure any semi-intelligent being will become at least slightly irritated at such a gross display of selfcentered hypocrisy.” Chen in fact took the opportunity to preach his ownhumanism (“Come on guys, can’t you take a stand for yourselves for once,” or “For once in your life, wake up and see the world inyourowleyes...‘~. is it not a p&son’s right to believe in something and if you believe in something why not share it? I commend Chen ontakingastand on what
he believes but I disagree with his condemnation of someone else’s beliefs. Chen was amazed “how a sentient being’s mind can and WU be so completely surrenderd to a fabricated entity.” From this, Chen’s idea is that by committing your life to God you be your feeling& Many of my friends have surrendered themselves to God but stil’ have feehgs such as: love, sadness, fear, happiness, etc. From my perspective they have not lost their feelings; they have only gained a
deeper underam of life+ then’s portrayaI of brainless * . cIms&ms is a general unproven statement Committing yours& to a doctrine by faith is not a simple decision. InthisletkrIhavetrigdtobeaware ofwhatiantadckssingbymore~ one partieuIar viewpoint In conclusion, I think people should have a bekf in somethir42 but whatever it is to bg wholly m&&&d,
moke, alcohols equally bad
I To the editor, I have a question for the managers of Fed Hall and the Bombshelter, the Feds and the university administration. Why is alcohol served on campus considering its long term negative impact on health, alcoholism, divorce, violence against women, drinking and driving death etc.? People like Mr. Littlefield seem to be selective about people’s personal habits when it personally affects the fragrance of his hairdo; yet there is a whole rotting environment out there that we all contribute to. I suppose you drive one of those stinky smelly automobiles that just happens to make mincemeat out of the ozone layer giving us all cancer. In this yuppie, preppie, buppie, Pepsi generation society we live in, why don’t people concern themselves with issues of real importance that effect our health and then do something about it?

The fate of the world’s rain forests has received much public attention lately, thanks partly to the efforts of persons as diverse as David Suzuki and Sting. Unfortunately, it is becoming difficult to see through the haze of information resulting from the hype. The importance of the rain forest to the global ecosystem, the actual damage being done to the forests, and the causes of the damage and potential solutions to the problems are alI discussed from a variety of viewpoints. Itwas once thought that the rain forests, such as the Amazon in Brazil and the Sarawak in Malaysia, were crucial to the oxygen cycle which supports all Lfe. This is no longer believed true, but the forests are important for other rea!3urls. Rain forests contain five times as many species per unit land area than the global average, and are home to the greatest variety of species on Earth. Most of the species have not been identified and little is known of the potential benefits they could bring to the human race. In fact, we know more about some parts of the moon than we do about some parts of the Amazon. The rain forests are alsoimportant because they absorb solar radiation, instead of reflecting it as heat energy. This has sign& cant effect on the global climate. The rain forests have been home to native peoples for thousands of years, and form an important part of their way of life. They are also important parts of the global water cycle; nearly two thirds of the world’s fresh water flow through the Amazon. The destruction of the rain forests is proceeding with great haste. In Brazil, 240 square kilometres are lost every day. It is predicted that within 20 years, species loss will be occurring at the rate of over 100 species each day. Within 50 years, it is thought, the last of the rain forests will disappear forever. The causes of this destruction are varied and it seems impossible to point to a single factor. The rain fores& in Central America have been cleztrrd in order to create grazing lands for cattle, and the beef was often imported into North America. But this is not a significant factor in the destruction of other rain forests. In M&q&, the Sarawak is being logged in order to create plvood and packing crates, mostly for Japanese corporate giants Mitsubishi and Mazda. The remaining forests will be lost in three or four years if the current rate of deforestation continues.
In Brazil, deforestation has been blamed on poor settlers from the slums of large cities who burn the forest in order to plant subsistence crops. This practice is incredibly destructive, since the burning releases huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to the greenhouse effect, and because the resulting soil is very poor for future agricultural use. Ne landholders also engaged in this practice, but most of the burning has been stopped since its ineffectiveness has been realized. Still, the deforestation continues, and is still accelerating faster in Brazil than in neighburing Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. The main enemy of the Amazon is now the industrial development that hasbeentakingplaceundergovemmentauspicesinrecentyears.Anewmple is the huge Xingu hydra-electric project, composed of 12 dams, which will flood 20 million acres and necessitate the resettlement of ten per cent of all of Brazil’s native people. This project will produce only a small amount of power, and most of this power will be going to the huge mines in the area. Five percent of Brazil’s ektric power goes to two aluminum mines. Many of the mines are also very destructive to the ecosystem, depositing silt into many of the rivers, or polIuting them with toxins such as mercury. There is hope, though, that the Brazilian government will not allow the large industries to destroy the fragile environment as they have in the past. On January 15 of this vear, the Pitinga tin mine in the Amazon (the largest in the world) was closed because the road to the mine travels through a Yanomami Indian reserve. This is the frrst time that the Brazilian govemment has recognized native people’s rights to live unharmed by industrial development International attention has doubtlessly been important in this first step to save the Amazon. But much more attention from the global leaders will be required if the rest of the world’s rain forests are to be saved. Pressure must be brought on the government of Japan to stop the importing of Sarawak timber, and upon Brazil to stop allowing big industry to exploit the d&X42-. This pressure must begin with the citizens of other countries, including Canada. A letter to your MP will be a small first step in an important process.

Elvis is the second To the editor Groan! Yet another article on Christianity bashing. It seems to me that you people are trying to get your client, God, off by technicality instead of addressing the issues. Let’s get a little perspective on the issues. 1. Jesus was a Jew, not a Christian. Last count, Mesmer beat Jesus in healing Doug Henning beat Jesus in miracles and Elvis Presley beat Jesus in resurrections. 2. The meaning of life is not equivalent to the question of the exis-
tence of God Many people have had meaningful lives without the necessity of a deity (i.e. Sigmund Freud). 3. The essence of God is the issue, not the existence of God. In other words, it’s not the contents of the box we are disputing, it’s what’s written on the box (truth in advertising laws apply here). God is asserted to be the only one of God species, and cannot reproduce (messes up the whole idea of monotheism) and therefore deserves no gender distinction as He or She, only It.
Wrong, Rhonda To the editor, Just one cotton piCkid minute! fit kind of concert review was that for the Voivod/Soundgarden/Faith No More show? Girnme a break! I may not be a writer, but at least I can get my facts straight. Soundgarden’s set was good fun, what with all the stage diving and assorted craziness going on, but the terrible sound and muddied guitars certainly didn’t do justice to their songs. As for Soundgarden’s supposed decision to leave out Full on Kevin ‘s Mom and Big Dumb &x so as not to p&der to the audience, that is one big joke. First off, they did play Full on Ktvin’s Mom. Where were yoq, Rhonda? How could you have missed Chris ComeH’s enlightening introduction - ‘This one’s about sex” - and his amazing mid-song swan dive into the audience, microphone and all? Unless the ill-fated ‘iMtie Berg Incident” occurred at that very moment, I just don’t think you were paying very close attention. As for Soundgarden’s decision not to play Big Dumb Sa, well that just wasn’t their decision to make.. That song was pencilled in on the song list as an encore but they didn’t gamer
enough audience applause or enthusiasm to merit an encore. I may be wrong, but I don’t think any big decision making went on there, Those are the facts. I’m not writing this letter to be spiteful, but I believe that credit should be given where credit is due. I, too came to the show to see Soundgarden,~ but Voivod put on a good show and it was obvious that the audience was all theirs. As for Rhonda’s comment that these three bands were a bad choice for a triple bill, there certainly weren’t too many people at the show that wouId agree. Many of the fans at the front of the stage did not venture from their places from the moment Faith No More hit the stage to the last chords of Voivod’s encore. I never got the feeling it was them against us; we were ail in it together. nose,

that God is Non-Conscious, ie. has no awareness (so much for that allknowing stuff). The Christians talk of “God’s love.” But It lacks the autonomic nervous system which enables us as human beings to feel love. I think that Elvis is the “Second Coming.” Jesus never experimented with drugs or sex, and so could never understand the human condition: if you haven’t tried it, you don’t have the right to judge it.” Elvis could understand human existence and he died for our music and was resurrected. By the most reli-
able authorities on the face of this earth (the H++My World News and the Sun), we have read testimonies that the King is still alive. We Elvisians are waiting for the ?Wrd Coming,” because the New and Improved Testament (the gospel according to Elvis) says so.

nere have been a multitude of letters appearing recently on two seemingly unrelated topics, misogyny and the validity of religious teachings. ‘Bible thumping” can be cited as one of the greatest barriers between the wisdom of religious teachings and the average person who has not whole-heartedly accepted such teachings. But has so much Bible thumping gone on that no one realizes the entire hate mentality is a probIem of a spiritual nature, not a matteroffixingblarneintheright place? People are accusing large grout of people of hating other large groups of people. You don’t need to own a Bible tobeabletofigureoutwhatk@doP social environment this behaviour WiII generate. When one demonstrates hate, hate is returned.
By definition, God is not alive. Living beings are born and die, and the stuff between is called life. The Bible asserts that God was not created and cannot die, and so logically, does not live. God should be referred to as “it” (Using the premise that “it is God” and “Coke is it”, and therefore Coke is God), The Christians say that Man is made in God’s image. The curse of the “apple” was to give Man consciousness, this means that Man was a non-conscious being before eating the Fruit of Knowledge. This implies

To the editor,
It is socially acceptable to be ignorant of anything concerning a person who demonstrates hateful tendencies. Ignorant of the hate they must have experienced to turn them into such an incarnation of hate. Ignorant that, by hating, 6ne is creating the very evil one so much wishes to see disembowelled, No saviour ever stood up and said ‘The me! Love me!” S&ours say things like “Love thy neighbour,“and “Do unto others.” But when all this hate is going on, WHY a& religious people expounding so much that we should love some saviour, and no one says to love ail peopIe unconditionally? There is something hypocritical and self-destructive in a fenkist hating a misogynist or an “innocentJ* maIe hating feminist . People floundering around, hating another person’s hatreds, is bound to generate a lot of hat&. Somebody could get killed!

With the accumulation of a vast body ,of evidence xGnting to the degradation and eventual destruction of, IUT environment, various influential individuals and :roups are proposing a large number of solutions. jome propose sobtions that are meritorious and can be whiIe others choose to measonably implemented, exchange a few precious coins of reason for an overinh&d currency of self-interest. Unfortunately, the latter youp is most vociferous. One of the many examples of this is the case of the sole of nuclear energy in our future. The proponents of nuclear power maintain that the only way to ameliorate he problems of acid rain, greenhouse eff et, etc., is with I massive build-up of the nuclear component of global energy productioi. The main advantage cited in f&our of this option is 3-;at nuclear power plants are “clew” in that their operation does not produce gaseous emissions into the atmosphere. Another advantage is that breeder reactors m be d to breed plutonium fuel while they connune uranium fueL Thus, the present supplies of non-renewable mmhun can be made to last for several centuries more, matring that our growing electricity demands will be ;atisfled without undue stress on the environment and Nithout sa&ficing our present standard of living. The iddedbonusofthisoptionisthatitwillbuyustimeuntil titernative, renewable technologies, such as fusion and s&r power, can be developed to the extent that they an assume the entire burden of energy production. The drawbacks of this proposal are many. First, the lumber and associated cost of nuclear power pIants equid to reduce global CO2 emissions and keep up tith growing energy demands (estimates range from j,OOO to 8,000 new reactors by the year 2025) would merely strain the resourc esofafewcountiesandbanmpt most others. Even with the lowered cost of mass production and standardization of components, this option would remain prohibitively expensive. Technicaland economic difficulties notwithstand&, here exists a tremendous amount of public reSiStance XI nuclear power, due chiefly to concerns about safety. After the accidents at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Dt.her Iess publicized incidents, these concerns are well Founded.
zx rtise and support required to d&gn, build and df” - dy operate large numbers of nuclear reactors are still wyond the capabilities of most countries. In the last decade, severrnl new reactors have been ksigned that address and circumvent the above .proDlems. These reactors are ComparativeIy small and
mod&, so their construction time and cost are cone siderably reduced. One such ‘next generation’ design, PIUS (Process Inherent Ultimately Safe) from Sweden, is a simplified, inherently safe and forgiving reactor that provides a large margin for safety. Even-with the new safer, less expensive reactors, the problem of disposing highly radioactive and long-lived spent fuel is yet unsolved. The technical problems of the most favoured option - burying the fuel in deep underground storage facilities for several thousand years - are still outstanding. There is no way to ascertain whether or when the radioactive waste will breach containment and leak out into the environment, causing potentially catastrophic consequence. Public resistance to this fashion of waste diSposaI is also very strong. ‘These are some of the benefits and drawbacks of the nuclear energy option. Nuclear energy cannot and should not be completely dismissed, but it can be used in more responsible w&s and in concert with other energy-producing technologies and methods of conserving energy. In this way, it can buy us some time until new and better technologies are developed However, these technologies will likely bring with them new and unforeseen problems that will have to be dealt with in a manner demonstrating prudence, good judgment and a concern for the environment and the long-term weII-kng of the people of this planet
The decision to reduce greenhouse and acid rain gases is obvious, but how to act on it is not There is no one sohttion; there are many. Each solution will be bought at a price.

Such activities were ended by PBI last November when she and another Canadian, Bruce Reid, were arrested, detained for 14 hours, and then released. She refused to leave the jail until all who accompanied her were released. After she was eventually freed, she returned to Canada for her own safety* The current violence in El Salvador is the result of a “history of 500 years of suffering,” she explained. Since’ the Spanish conquistadors enslaved the country in order to extract its resources, the country has never been free.

The “mothers of the disappeared,” known by the acronym “Comrads,” were united by Oscar Romero, a Catholic bishop later assassinated by the armed forces. Waging armed resistance to the government is the FMLN, who believe that there is no room for non-violence in the fight against the government, Ridd reported. The FMLN recently fought a large campaign against the government forces in the capital San Salvador. The attack was sparked by the bombing of a radical union office killing ten people and injuring more than 25. This bombing was done with knowledge that children would be present to see their parents blown apart, Ridd said. The unusual brutality of this attack led directly to the six-week show of strength by the FMLN in the capital city.

Treason This fable was inspired by the recent decision of the Ontario College of Art to hire only women for the next ten years and the refusal of the Human Rights Commission to take any action against this sexually discriminating policy of a post secondary institution. “Grandma, tell us the story about when women “All right, Susie. Billy, stop bothering weren’t boss.” your father in the kitchen and come in here. Children, this is the story of how men got put back in. their place. “Once upon a time, there was a people of the North. They lived in an age when there was much art, most of it foreign, and most of it, unlike the local stuff, was god.
before them. “We want you to hire only women, or from now on the only nude women we will allow to be painted are us.’ This scared the president because these women afl needed personal house calls from Richard Simmons real bad. “You mean, Grandma, that there used to be a time when it wasn’t proper for a woman to be fat?” “That’s right, Susie. It was a very unciviIi.z~ time back in the nineteen nineties. Men could get fat as they wanted, but women were always being told to stay young, trim and bouncy.
There existed in this time a place called Oh See, Eh and this was where the young ones, like you Susie, went to become artists. Here they lived in a fantasy-land with lots of paint and clay.
“So, the president gave in to their demands and drafted a policy that would insure that no man could get hired for the next ten years. Of course men that wanted those teaching jobs complained but even the Human Rights Commission of the government told them it was
“They alI lived pretty happily until someone noticed that most of the teachers were men. ‘well, this is a terrible thing!’ said their president. So all night and all day they thought of how they could get more women on the faculty. One person suggested that they start hiring a certain percentage of women. Everyone thought this was a splendid idea. No one really knew why they needed more women teachers, but hey, they would spice the place up, right? “Well, they only got a few women teachers but they got lots of spice. The women that now worked at Oh See, Eh thought that all the other teachers were dirty old men because they painted naked women and put them on posters This may be so,’ they replied, ‘but women have been painted nude since art began.’ The men out numbered the women so the women hatched a plot. They would get more women as teachers. ‘This plan was quite good. If their plan worked women could become a socio-economic force of their own and still pig out at ice cream stores. There would be no more of these naked women being painted, that was for sure. ‘We want nude men hanging around the studio’ they used to say to each other in the sauna. . “One night the supporters gathered in the meeting place. There, they had the president of Oh See, Eh
breaks but so what, they of naked women either,
“After this move Oh See, Eh was forced to htie on a lot of people with limited talent because those that were any good got real jobs. The quality of artists produced by the school fell-through the floor. As a res$, credible art disappeared from the Canadian scene as all the good artists moved to more liberal, free countries like Iran and China, Who needs good artists anyway’ they said. “An ancient Greek woman, named Plato, wrote that artists are all untruthful jerks that smoke all your cigarettes and drink all your wine, so everyone was glad to be rid of them. “soon
they were only hiring women and
soon after the women put men back in their place. And, as herstory has shown, this is where they belong, submissive in the household, without the vote, raising children. Our scientists have proven this fact with numerable experiments.” “Wow, Grandma, that was a great story days. But isn’t sad that men are so backward allowed to do anything?” “Dear, they own little world and are quite happy

I was recently treated for a yeast infection and my boyfriend and I had sex a few times during the time that I had the infection. Is it true that men can get yeast infections from women? ANSWER: Yes, the fungus that causes yeast infections in females could have been transmitted to your partner during intercourse. Ifit was, it would then be possible for him to pass the infection back to you. There are two areas on the penis where the fungus could grow:’ the urethral opening at the tip of the penis or, if your partner is uncircumcised, underneath his foreskin. Regular washing of the area underneath the foreskin could limit the chance of the fungus growing there. If your boyfriend is experiencing painful urination or notices rednms around the tip of his penis, he should see a doctor because this could be a sign of a yeast infection or another sexually transmitted disease. Males are generally treated with the same medication as females but it is in the form of a cream (applied externally to the genitals) as opposed to the vaginal suppository used by females. Medication must be taken for the prescribed length of time (two to four weeks) even though the symptoms may disappear after as little as two days. This applies to both males and females, Whereas males can only get yeast infections from sexual contact, it is very common for females to get infections when they are not sexually active. The yeast organism is always present in the vagina, but its growth is limited by the vagina’s natural acidity. When this chemical balance is disturbed, the fungus can begin to grow uncontrollably. Symptoms of yeast infections are typically mild to intolerable vaginal itchiness, redness and swelling of the vagina, and a thick white discharge similar in appearance to cottage cheese. There are various things that can alter the chemical balance in the vagina. Some of these th%gs are completely natural and therefore out of your control. For example, menstrual flow increases the chance of yeast infections in some females and infections are very common during pregnancy as a result of hormonal changes. There are other things that can aiter the chemical balance of the vagina but are difficult to change (at least in the short run). The use of antibiotics or oral contraceptives (especially when combined), emotiona stress, and lack of sleep can all decrease the resistance to yeast infections. Finally, there are more practical ways of limiting the chance of developing yeast infections. A study by Heidrich in 1984 found that wdmen who wore pantyhose were three times more likely to have yeast infections than were those who did not. Nylon underwear can also retain heat and moisture in the vagina that in turn leads to infections. Decreasing the amount of carbohydrates in your diet, limiting exposure to products that can irritate the vagina (e.g. deodorant tampons, vaginal sprays) and ensuring that there is plenty of lubrication during intercourse can also help to prevent infections. I’ve probably given you more information here than you were asking for, but hopefully it will help you (and others) decrease the likelihood of getting yeast infections. l7ze Smual Inquirer is written by volunteers-of the Sexuality Resource Centre and appears in Imprint every other week.

Though originally Lloyd Axworthy had been on the bill, a last-minute switch meant the campus Liberal club hosted a talk by potential Liberal leader-
ship candidate Jim Peterson instead on Wednesday, January 17. The day before, Axworthy announced that he was no longer intending to run for Liberal leadership as the campaigning cost was prohibitive. Liberal delegates are allowed to spend $1.8 million, which they must raise themselves. About twenty people attended this question and answer session to hear the brother of Ontario Premier David Peterson. Peterson believes there is a lack of Canadian control of the Canadian Economy. He used the foreign take-over of Connaught Biosciences by a French government company as an example. Peterson said that he wanted a “Canada strong for Canadians.” Peterson told the audience that every $1 billion of foreign investment in Canada provided on average 11 new jobs. The same amount invested by Canadians creates 5500 jobs. He aiso noted that foreign subsidiaries tend to. be domestic market oriented with either little or no money spent on foreign research and development.
Peterson suggested that part of the $25 billion which Canadihave invested in various pension funds could be put to better use. The pension fund administrators might be enticed to invest in high-tech areas as well ans

In dealing with the long term sustained growth in the Canadian economy, he said we could try following the Japanese model of long-range planning with close co-operation between government and industry. Turning his attention to the Free Trade Agreement (FTAJ, Peterson remarked that the Liberals had accurately predicted that it would be bad for Canada. He cited the Liberal estimate of 57,000 jobs lost due to free trade. Despite the move toward “freer” trade, American companies made more applications to restrict Canadian exports to; the United States.

Also speaking were Mosha Lewin, Soviet scholar and professor of hisUniversity of tory at the and lgor Lobanov, Pennsylvania, press officer for the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa. The discussion, which attracted an audience of over 130 people, wrapped up Laurier’s festival on Russia, Back in the USSR. Each panelist spoke for about 1.5 25 minutes, after which a question and answer period was held. In his talk, Lawrence Martin gave his summation of the current political and economic state of the USSR, based on his experiences as foreign

correspondent from 19854989. Martin described the Soviet economy as a ‘basket case,” and Gorbachev as a social democrat who “could have made a fine candidate for the NDP a few months ago.” According to Martin, pmstroika has played a major role in Gorbachev’s attempts to provide for selfdetermination of peoples. He noted that, in trying to follow up on this goal, Gorbachev found himself in a paradoxical situation. The Soviet Union is made up of over 100 different peoples. With his policy of self-determination of peoples, many of the Soviets’ annexed territories would declare their independence. Martin listed Georgia, the Baltics and the Ukraine (with a population of fifty million), as the most likely to go, along with many others. In encouraging this policy, however, Gorbachev jeopardizes his own power and career. A great amount of time and money - not to mention many military expeditions - have been invested in building the Soviet Union into what it is today. The Soviet Union, as it stands, is a vast empire with over 280 million people, With its natural resources, the USSR stands to rival Canada for its economic position in the Western world.
...the odds of the Soviet Union invading Europe are about the same as Canada invading Great Britain... Martin discussed the possibility of a “multi-national confederation” taking form in the future. Under such a confederation, states such as the Ukraine would be given more political autonomy while still remaining part of the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, given the desire for independence and the disastrous condition of the Soviet economy, few states would remain with the Soviet Union. According to Martin, the state of the Soviet economy has gotten worse, not better, since Gorbachev’s reforms have been instated. He stressed that we in the West need to help Gorbachev with his reforms however possible, and severely criticized the West for its almost passive role in disarmament proceedings, asking why we are not taking the lead, Disarmament has actually been spear-headed by Gorbachev.

Unfortunately, Lobanov did not provide the attentive audience with any pertinent information which had not been heard before. When asked about the political views of Soviet youths, Lobanov replied that the unrest of the young people is high, and that many informal youth organizations are political in nature. Conversely, in response to the same question, Mosha Lewin commented that students in the Soviet Union are “fast asleep and one day they will wake up and tell us something!”
tn contrast, Igor Lobanov, press officer from the Soviet embassy, compared the changes in the USSR to the changes occurring throughout Europe and the rest of the world. He said that “a11 of us, we are changing” and then w&t on to discuss the achievements of the Soviet reform policy. Lobanov said that the mechanism for perestroika had always existed within the Soviet system of government, and did not attribute any particular credit to Gorbachev. He did not explain what this mechanism was. Perestroika, “unprecedented conscience.”

Perestroika is the unprecedented growth of public conscience. The Soviet scholar defended the “old” Soviet system, saying that it was responsible for Soviet industrialization and for making the Soviet Union the Superpower it is today. Lewin went on to inform the audience that when the old system stagnated, Gorbachev’s reforms had saved it. He talked of the lack of goals and authority which had plagued the old system. He then pointed out that the biggest issue in Soviet politics is deciding which type of political system should be employed - what role should capitalism play in the Soviet political structure? In addition, he stressed that economic change must take place, as had Martin. Finally, Lewin announced that the world is focussing too much attention on exaggerated Soviet problems. He gave the example that crime has been widely publicized as being a Soviet problem which has reached alarming levels. However, according to Lewin, crime is at only one-fifth of American levels. The majority of the panel discussion was not so much concerned with peresMka as it was with the problems the Soviet Union has faced in the past and will face in the future. The only specific aspect of perestmika which all three panelists agreed upon was that it has failed to adequately address
economic problems. In fact, despite the increasing political freedoms Gorbachev has brought for his people, he is not that popular, both Martin and Lobonov agreed. Since perestroika, the Soviet economy has worsened. All three predickd a tense, difficult yet hopeful future for the USSR
Student security force approved most.” She cited the fact that many night classes get out at 9 p-m., and bars by 2 a.m. Students who want to stay on campus later than this, especially architecture students who often stay all night in their labs, are still at risk, she noted. “Everyone has the right to walk on campus at anytime,” said Speers. Many attacks have occurred during daylight hours, specifically along the Sunnydale pathway. But the students will have to prove that they want the service by using it before funding will be increased to address these needs. savs SDeers.
by Angela Heeds Imprint staff Funding of $23,484 was approved last week by the LJW administration to establish a paid student security force on campus. “There is a need to feel protected on campus,” said Kim Speers, the Federation of Students’ Women’s Issues Board chairperson, in her drive for the new service. From 1984 to 1988, 61 sexual assaults, indecent acts and “peeping Tams” were reported on or around UW campus. Speers says the real numbers are much higher. As much as 16 times higher, according to her report proposing the security force for uw. In the report, Speers cites last year’s three-month study showing an average of 53 students turned away from the safety van
The department of Co-operative Education and Career Services (CECS) has announced how it intends to deal with students who miss interviews. Last fall approximately 500 students missed first round interviews. As a result the department received a number of complaints from employers, The department considers that students are committed to attend all interviews scheduled, and missing interviews deprives other students of interviews for jobs which they may otherwise have been selected. It may also jeopardize future jobs if companies question the students’ commitments to the interview process. Therefore, a student who misses an interview without a justifiable reason will be subject to disciplinary actions. These are:

It will be modelled after York University’s student security system, which includes a campus patrol, escort service, bike patrol, pub patrol, parking and information booth staffing and re’gular security support. York’s escort service, which UW plans to emulate, runs from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. September through April and 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. May through August. UW’s force, however, will run only from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. six days a week and until 1 a.m. on Sundays. There will be two teams of two people on duty each night.

of the book. Not a Journey presents many ostensibly valid points, but does not back them up with hard, documented evidence. For example, Davies relies far too much on testimonials as proof for her points. In the second chapter, Davis attempts to prove the case against CN and CP, which have been overcharging VIA for track rental. She quotes many reliable authorities, such as Roy Jamieson, former executive director of Transport 2000, Canada’s national transportation advocacy organization. Jamieson is quoted as saying that in one case, CN was charging VIA more to run its train on the track from Kentville, N.S. to Yarmouth than CN’s cost to run its entire freight operation on the same track. While Jamieson must be a reliable source, Davis does not include hard facts - like a copy of CN’s local accounting ledger to back up his statement. Although much of the evidence presented is not new, Davis has uncovered some fresh evidence of smudged statistics by the federal government. Government reports assessed VIA’s ridership to be three pe-r

The end of January marks the “crunch” for students as we begin to ponder the many demands on our time. There is no need to panic, though, because the Health and Safety Resource Network has advice on managing the anxiety which accompanies our busy lives. Anxiety is a normal and inevitable part of student life. A certain amount of anxiety can be a good thing; it keeps us aware and interested in what we’re doing. This positive anxiety is called facilitative. Anxiety which becomes too great and’therefore interferes with what we need to do is labelled deliberative. The secret is to manage our lives in a way which prevents becoming what is commonly referred to as “stressed out.” The physiological component of anxiety includes reactions like a pounding heart, shallow breathing, butterflies in the stomach etc, These are natural responses 20 dangers - real or imagined. Some ways to counteract physical tension include muscle relaxation and deep breathing, although there are many other ways to relax. The other component, worry, is the internal dialogue we carry on with ourselves about our lack of achievement, our incompetency or stupidity, our potential for failure, etc. These negative thoughts take the focus away from-what we have to do [*i.e. study for or write an exam) and increase the psychological reactions mentioned above.
Some ways to break the worry habit include: distinguishing between problem-solving and worrying; working on the task and putting aside the anxious thought which surround its initiation/completion/success; concentrating on the present, not the past or future; and giving yourself positive instructions. The ways to reduce emotional-physical tensions are simple and pleasurable, and involve doing things which interest you. The therapeutic effects of going to the show, listening to music, talking with a friend (about the cause of your anxiety or life in general), exercising, going for a “stress” walk, meditating, eating a nutritious snack/meal, or screaming wildly out the nearest window are great. By doing these things, and by detecting the stress symptoms and lowering your physiolQgical arousal level, you will increase your energy level and your capacity to channel this energy toward your scholastic goals. If you feel your problems cannot be resolved/managed in these ways, or if you have further questions about managing anxiety, contact the Counselling Services Centre (second floor of Needles Hall, Room 2080, 8854211 ext. 2655). You can also contact the Health and Safety Resource Network (Health and Safety building, Room 121, 885-1211 ext. 6277) for questions about anxiety, stress, or any other heaIth issue. If you would like to see a particular issue covered in this column, contact HSRN as well.

Biotech and the artof listening by Geoff Lumby ” Special to Imprint In the Campus ‘Centre one evening I had a wonderful discussion with a political science major about biotechnology. It was one of those rare exchanges where two people with opposing views leave with permanently enlightened perspectives. As a biology major, I’d always had unbridled enthusiasm for biotechnology. My friend’s position was one of extreme caution; he maintained this new technology had the potential to wreak great havoc on the environmental and social structure of the planet. The stage was set for a friendly debate. The new techniques enabling us to effect genetic changes are miraculous in terms of the precision and power’we can now exercise, As an example, pest-resistant strains of commercially valuable crops were obtained traditionally via breeding programs that frequently took years to complete, often with little improvement. To protect crops from pests more effectively, we have had to rely on a heavy application of pesticides, the detrimental long-term effects of which we are all too familiar with. Recently it was discovered that the balsam fir tree contains a compound (juvabione] that prevents some pests from developing into their destructive adult form. Attempts are now being made to transfer the genes for this compound directly to food crops. Within limits, it is possible that any trait is transferable as long as the genes responsible are small in number. The University of Waterloo has a new federal centre of excellence, Biotechnology for Insect Pest Management, which will explore new ways of conferring pesticide resistance via recombinant techniques (the splicing of DNA or genes). I relayed such wonders of bio-

technology to my friend. He liked the‘idea df reducing crop damage without using highly toxic pesticides, but asked if anyone had considered the consequences of releasing genetically novel plants into the environment. Was he envisioning the genetically superior stems of a few grape vines surrounding and strangling a small town? Could a laboratory accident result in a killer cloud of pathogenic bacte-
strain compared to the parent organism, Most recombinant bacteria cannot survive beyond the ideal conditions of the laboratory petri dish. The absurdity of these scenarios represents a mistake that many scientifically-trained people make when discussing a technological issue with a layperson. We assume that a political science major will be ignorant of the real constraints [like the one outlined above] and resultant
ria? There is a substantial amount of evidence suggesting that neither of the posed scenarios will ever happen. A fundamental rule of adding genetic material to any organism is that the new creation invariably ends up being less fit, as the genetic make-up of an organism is the result of thousands of years of evolutionary fine-tuning. The addition of a gene always creates new energy demands. If the organism can, it accommodates this sudden drain by decreasing output to other areas. The result is a much weaker new
limiti imposed on any technology* Hence, the layperson may believe any alarmist story. To test my friend’s susceptibility, I asked if he was concerned about such disastrous situations. He replied that he was familiar with the idea of recombinant organisms being weaker, and it made sense. But there were other problems that concerned him - especially the Irish potato famine. The mould that destroyed huge areas of potatoes in Ireland, causing many deaths, did so because the plants were all geneti-
Researchers from the University of Toronto at the Hospital for Sick Children and the University of Michigan at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute have been able to clone the gene and locate the defect that causes most cases of Cystic Fibrosis (C.F.). Their discovery was reported in the September 8, 1989 issue of the journal Science. CF. is the most common genetic disorder in Caucasians, affecting five per cent of all children born in the US. For the 30,000 people estimated to have the disease today, life expectancy is only mid to late twenties. This disorder affects a number of organs including the sweat glands, pancreas and the lung airways. Treatment only deals with the symptomatic infections and problems associated with the abnormally thick mucus the body produces. This mucous accumulates in the lungs, depriv’es the body of oxygen, and eventually causes death by impairing r~*?wdk!u~~ **m&*,EMwa0wM*m~~~~-
tally similar. Likening potatoes to exams, if every one we ever wrote was identical, our success rate would eventually reach 100 per cent. But as the demands placed on students are constantly changing however, we are prevented from achieving 100 per cent (at least most of us are). Similarly, the mould was not able to destroy every potato plant on earth as some plants are
resistant by virtue of their uniqueness. Many articulate arguments against biotechnology are based on this point. If genetic engineers are allowed to design “ideal” crops, and the degree of genetic uniformity of the world’s food crop is increased, are we not then setting the stage for future disaster? The proper phrase is “decreasing the gene pool,” and many are concerned that allowing too many engineered products into the market could be problematic.
This very important side of agricultural engineering I learned from my political scientist friend, not from any biology or biotech course I had taken. Decreasing the gene pool is but one of a number of controversial issues. It should come as no news that generalists are in demand. Whether David Suzuki, Alvin Toffler or Larry Smith says so, the creation of so many highlyspecialized technologies over our lifetime has lead to the need for those who will serve solely as liaisons. Without these people, many miraculous technologies, biotechnology among them, may never be utilized to their full potential, or worse, they might contain hidden features eventually proving more harmfu1 than beneficial. To be fair, there now exist some liberal arts courses that provide a rounded and accurate look at some of the controversial issues in biotechnology. Slowly we are starting to recognize the need and set up the proper educational channels, but what can a single person do to facilitate better communication? My friend took the first step that evening in the Campus Centre. He knew I was.sizing him up as ignorant on the issues of biotechnology by virtue of his degree. He listened anyway, listened and learned. He also managed to educate a biologist in some aspects of biology far more important than memorizing the chemical structure of juvabione. 1 would not trade my detailed knowledge of biology for anything. I also remain confident that biotechnology will bring more promises than perils, provided that we will actually listen to each other, And to this end, the lesson I learned that night was this: your education is worth nothing if you believe it gives you sole rights to any topic.

If, ten years from now, I think back on my time in Summer Beaver, I’will remember first the faces. . . the smiling faces and dark, dancir/g eyes. From old grandmothers to the kind rgarten crowd, the warm, glowing smiles r %diating from these brown faces set me at pbace. I These are theojibway, “Anishnabi”in their opn language which means “people” or “the people.” Like the words “Dene”, “Inuit” or “Cheyenne”, the people are simply the people. “Ojibway” is a word applied to the Anishnabi by other tribes and means “people who wear puckered moccasins.”
The Ojibway of Summer Beaver waste no words. If it can be said in three words instead of thirty, they’ll find a way. Part of this impressiort 1 have of their patterns of language is influenced by the fact that English is a second Ianpage for al1 these people. However, their concise habits contrast markedly with our Southern, urban pattern of talking for the sake of talking, or making a “story” out of something we wish to communicate. Samuel arrives back in the village after a week of hunting. He strides into the staff room, beaming all around, holds up two fingers. “Two moose.” That’s all he needs to say. He would not impose a story on his audience. We are allowed the pleasure of our own imaginations. If questioned, he would supply details, but questioning is not the way of conversation here, although it is accepted that white people are full of questions and we are tolerated rather welI. Samuel’s family will eat moose stew this winter, and I’m waiting to see the new moccasins appear on the children.
Adolescent suicide Summer Beaver has a popuIation of just over 300,96 of whom are children enrolled at the school. Nearly everyone is related somehow, by blood or by marriage, and the children eagerly educate outsiders on the intricacies of family arrangements: ‘That’s Jeremiah. He’s my uncle!” exclaims one eight-year old, pointing out a three-year old tot by his cabin, Four or five family names account for most of the population. The teenage girls currently have their feet off the ground with excitement at the prospect of ail the visiting team members which will be in our community next week for the Third Annual Nibinamik Hockey Tournament. Although the chances of meeting sotieorie not related to ofieself are greater in a neighbouring community, many people in Summer Beaver have cousins or more distant relatives on the outside. When there is a suicide in any community in the North, all the villages mourn the loss. _ Since my arrival here, there have been no less than four, ail young people under 18.
their own destiny with as little government interference as possible. They have community by-laws which prohibit the importation of alcohol or narcotics into Summer Beaver and insist that ail buildings be of log construction to guarantee employment for the locals. Summer Beaver was established without the blessings of the government, an action which has resulted in the settlement not yet receiving the status of a reserve, even though it has existed in this particular spot for the last 15 years. These people, living on land they have lived on for thousands of years, are considered squatters by Ottawa.
I am walking home from school. The little ones are walking just ahead of me. They haven’t seen me yet, but they will. One turns and with a shout, races back to catch my free hand. The rest pour into phce beside me, behind me. “Cindy!” My name has become a favourite word. 1 feel so good in the company of these little ones. They do not care what colour I am. We catch up to Roger, the village construction foreman, and his small son, Arthur. Arthur is practising his shooting with an old plastic curtain rod he has acquired. “Arthur killed his first partridge!” Roger informs me. He contains his pride admirably.
A serious mistake you could make in Summer Beav_el would be to take yourself too seriously and find offense in the teasing which seems to be an integral part of social interaction. Hun-tour, the idea of what is funny, varies. from that to which 1 am accustomed. 1 would be surprised if a native of Summer Beaver found a Gary Larson (Far Side) cartoon amusing. However, were I to slip on the ice and fall, I would expect this to be one of the funniest stories of the day, to be widely circulated. Slapstick humour is still of great entertainment value in Summer Beaver and practical jokes much admired. Don’t be surprised to find toothpaste in your door lock or a tack in your boot.

The first European explorers commented on the friendliness and helpfuIness of the Ojibway they encountered. This openness and trust would soon be exploited by early settlers, greedy for furs. Still, the Ojibway remain a friendly people, now suspiciously aware of the outside, but willing to work with individuals who come into their community. The peopl y tire typically shy, but not unfriendly or c8 ld.’ Nervousness or tension is expressed most often by laughter or giggling, a trait which can be unnerving to a newcomer who often feels as though he or she is being “laughed at.” 1 remember sitting on the front step of a cottage shortly after my arrival, trying to take it alI in. Three small girls about age nine sat nearby whispering and giggling, their eyes on me the whole time. Two older teenage girls, future students of mine, stood off to my left doing much the same thing. A returning teacher sat with me, saying nothing. 1 never felt so awkward and out of place in my entire life. One young girl of about 11 approached me and stood staring, her face a mask. She reached out and touched my long, blonde hair. She gave it a tug which hurt. “Is that a wig? ” she asked finally, in the monotone I would soon come to associate with a native speaking English. The Ojibway language is strangely, to my ear, devoid of inflection. 1 smiIed and tugged
Indian time zone Soon after my arrival in Summer Beaver, 1 made enquiries as to how to quickly get a telephone installed in my cabin. Trying to get an estimate of how long it would take proved difficult. 1 soon learned to drop the words “quickly,” “hurry,” “rush” and “immediately” from my vocribulary. When you get to the north, forget time zones. You’re on Indian time and you better get used to it. Far from being unpleasant, it is a welcome relief from the bustling idiocy of the city where people run to catch a subway train despite the fact another one will arrive in four minutes. Besides, no one expected me to do anything quickly either, or at least no one complained if 1 didn’t.

One rarely hurries in the village. Only children run around. If you see an adult runnitig, you might want to consider running in the same direction because there must be an awfully good reason! The people here work hard; they must in order to survive, but they work at their own pace and one can almost feel the natural, daily rhythm of the village, or hear it as though it were a simple score of low notes, flowing from some unseen source, rising and falling

A faint shadow passes over my afternoon as 1 remember that these people have a struggle ahead of them, a battle with bureaucracy which will determine their “right” to exist as a community. I imagine Arthur in a place like Lansdowne House, where it is not uncommon for children his age to sniff gasoline, What will become of Summer Beaver?

Maria D-el Mar: the future of feminism lucky enough to be the next Mark Bell, hauled up on stage to be embraced by Maria and be invited to join the band in a chorus
by Paul Done
I have seen the future of feminism and her name is Maria Del Mar - the cybertronic gothAmazon marauder from Planet X. As the lead singer of National Velvet she has created a category for females within rock ‘n’ roll - an overtly sexual woman who brooks no moronic sexism and possesses the physical presence to impose her views upon males who may choose to differ, With the ragtag troupe of subservient male musicians she calls a band, Maria Del Mar rocks as hard [excuse the phallic imagery] as any male musician, while making no concessions to the baser gender. While their return engagement at the Bombshelter last Thursday, lanuary 18, was both enjoyable for the music and for Maria’s cavalier, brusque attitude toward the men in the audience, National Velvet showed signs of pandering to the core of their audience which has emerged through the success of their two “hits”: Flesh Under Skin and Change My Mind (which they played twice). Without Maria Del Mar’s Dionysian presence front and centre, National Velvet would
probably be just another hack band labouring with their variant of postpunk angst - one which has already been flogged to death by innumerable sallow white kids with bands called Dead Souls or something like .
that.. With her, though+ they’re what a reviewer from a kinder, gentler age might have called “a total gas.” While National Velvet are by no means stars yet, Maria in-
spires massive amounts of fandom and adoration from the audience, which seems to consist largely of hormonally-deranged males who crane and crowd ever closer to the stage. Perhaps they hope that they too might be
Brass Baroque Boring, symphony by Mavie
Those of you who shared my anticipation of the unusual Ba-roque programme being performed the K-W Symphony must have been a little disappointed with the offerings last Wednesday at the Theatre of the Arts. The “Baroque and Beyond: Music from England” evening began with John Adson”s Masques and Antimasques. It was performed by a brass quintet of K-W Symphony members, with Carol Ann Feldstein reciting verses by John MiL ton (1629-1635). Maestro Raffi Armenian’s preamble suggested that these “allegorical plays” extolled the virtues of their patron Royalty. Masques evolved into a unifying presentation of dance, music and poetry. To my mind, this conjured up thoughts of an elegant and theatrical concert. What we received was quite a different matter. In spite of the obvious talent of the performers, the quintet seemed ill prepared for this performance. They failed to master the abrupt rhythm and tempo changes. The crass, unrestrained performance of the__ musicians - _

I would guess, though, that their truer desire would be to trade places with the anonymous male whose face Maria thrust into her cleavage with the admonition “You’ve been staring at them all night. Have a closer look!” Bozo of the night award went to “Biff from Guelph,” who foolishly yelled “Take it off!” at Maria during the second set. After apeing his remark, and after his refusal to obey her “Come up here on stage you asshale!” command, Maria (wo)manhandled Biff onto the stage by the lapels of his jacket. The verbal abuse he received from crowd and band was swift, brutal and unending. For a band with a new album theoretically imminent, playing the same song twice in a night smacks greatly of stagnation and cheap cro.wd-pleasing. Maria Del Mar is a completely unique rock *n’ roll phenomenon, despite her giga-ugly, unfiatter,ing dress (pulled from the Salvation Army reject pile, I’d guess) and National Velvet are a boss evening’s entertainment.
I was not previously familiar with any of the repertoire, which may have been a good thing as I could not have had a more dramatic live introduction. Out from the blackened stage emerged a trio of cello, piano and flute, Dressed completely in black and half masks, the performers successfully immersed
the audience in George Crumb’s VOX Bleaenae(l972). To recreate or suggest the guttural and ethereal calls of wholes, the trio employed
simultaneously singing while playing the flute, plucking the strings of a prepared piano, and whistling.

The powerful and earthy singing of Anne-Marie Donovan so moved me that my faced burned and my chest became tight. The juxtaposition of two dialogues from The Dead had me on the verge of tears. Anne Moselton and John Watson demonstrated such sincerity that I couldn’t help but share their earnestness. Glen Buhr blends such unbearable sadness with the full spectrum of emotions. I was overwhelmed with the ability of the young performers to spin through these emotional acrobatics required by this complex

Mighty by Peter Diaz Imprint staff When The Mighty Lemon Dropa formed five years ago, it was never intended to last as long as it has. Singer Patil Marsh and guitarist David -Netitm started jamming together just to pass the time in between jobs. With the ‘addiffon of bassist Tony Linehan and drummer Keith Rowley, they started doing some shows around England and soon found themselves being sought after by a few record companies. They eventually signed on with Chrysalis in England and Sire in North America. Since then they’ve released four albums in North America (dappy Head, Out Of Hand, Wbrld Without End and the new Laughter) and three in England (CM Of Hand wasn’t released the). They’ve toured Canada thpee times, once with The Chameleons, again with Love atid Rockets and finally at the 1988 CFNY Canada Day picnic at Molson Park. ‘I had the chance to talk to Paul Marsh last week and I asked him what it was like to tour with Love and Rockets. He said that although they had a great time, it was also quite strange. “In England you couldn’t put Love and Rockets and The Mighty Lemon Drops together on the show because you could sort of split the audience down the center,” quite unlike the Canadian crowds, Marsh said. The Lemon Drops are looking forward to playing to the North American crowds, who Marsh feels are more interested in the music and having a good time rather that just “standing there and watching.” On their current tour, which will bring them to the Diamond on January 29 and to The Trasheteria the next night, they will be touring with Ocean Rain and Iohn Wesley Harding. This tour of North America wil! be their longest and most extensive yet. It is bringing them to places that they haven’t heard of. In fact, Marsh asked me to describe The Trasheteria to him so he would know what to ex’ pect. They’ll be playing in venues ranging from theatres to colleges to clubs. In New York they’ll be playing at The Ritz which can hold up to 3000 people. The first show was a week and a half ago in Washington and according to Marsh it was a “brilliant show. One of those special nights.” The band has undergone a line-up change between the last tour and the new album, Leughter. Former bassist Tony Linehan has been replaced by Marcus Williams (who toured with Julian Cope). Marsh said that they “sort of asked Tony to leave.” Linehan was fed up, didn’t want to tour as much as the rest of the band and had stopped songwriting. Communication had broken down between him and the rest of the band. In the end, the future of the band was at stake so it was out withTony, in with Marcus. The band is happy with how things have been going with Marcus, calling him a “breath of fresh air.” With Linehan gone, the band

As far as the album goes, Marsh says that, for the most part, it was recorded live, The bass guitar, drums and lead guitar were laid down together; then he went in and added the irocals. Songwriting credit goes to guitarist Davis Newton, who brings in the idea for a song into the studio. Once the band is together, they “strip the song totally down and re-arrange it and put it back together.” At the end of the day, “it is a Lemon Drops song.” Both Marsh and Newton work on the lyrics, mixing both personal experience and fiction, They like to keep the lyrics open so people canget their own interpretation from them.~

Enter the asylum by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff The eighties have been one of the best decades for comics since their conception in the early fifties. This particular decade saw the maturation of comic books as a literary medium with the appearance of such works as Alan Moore’s Wutchmm and V.fir Vcndettu, and Frank Miller’s Butmm: The Dark Knight Rc~~-ms. Also, the art of people such as Todd MacFarlane, Art Adams and Bill Sienkiewckz helped generate interest in the comic book genre. The eighties changed comic books’ main audience from immature audiences to people from all walks of life, and even led to some, such as Watrhmw, being taught at the University level.
Another book which can be added to the ever growing list of “mature” comics is the new hardcover Arkhufn A~vlum. Although meant to capitalize on the recent phenomenal success of Batman, writer Grant Morrison and artist Dave McKean’s latest rendition of the caped crusader is sure to last for years as one of the few serious treatments he has received. The premise of Arkham Aq4um is that on April 1, the inmates of The Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane (The Joker, Two-Face, The Scarecrow, et. al.) revolt against the doctors and demand that for the safe release of these hostages, Bat-man must surrender to them. He does, and is caught up in a game of hide and seek with the inmates. He encounters numerous villains, most of which he defeats with relative ease, except Killer Croc, who gives him a decent battle, but ends up getting skewered like a big alligator shishkabob. At the end of the game, there is a showdown between the inmates and Batman. The Joker decides to leave the fate up to Harvey Dent (aka TwoFace) and his famous coin. One side of the coin is scarred, and if that side comes up, it spells curtains for Batman. Dent flips his coin and indicates that Batman is free. As Batman leaves, however, the coin is revealed to have come up on its scarred face. The “unstable”ending fits the overall style of the book. Although t8e story is well-written, what makes the book great (and what makes it cost $30.95 for less than 120 pages) is McKean’s lavishly painted illustrations. The paint on the glossy pages is a welcome change from the typical ink on newsprint regular comics come with. The Joker is especially well-suited to the paint treatment. He has never looked so maniacal, and so evil, his bloodshot eyes stand out against his white skin, which is accented by shocks of green hair and ruby red lips. Batman himself is painted as an almost formless shadow, with only his teeth sometimes visible through his dark brooding COWL In&a&&f Uniform homogeneous M&a makes the blood mori realistic by showing it congeal and stain, and drops of it &kti.ng light.

FE6RUARY ADVANCE DAY OF
Spears by Michael H. Clifttm Imprint staff Danish-Canadian artist Heather Spears is well-known for her pencil drawings and her poetry. Her present exhibition at the UW Art Gallery, located in Modern Languages, cuntinues until February 11. The show contains some 300 finished sketches of refugees who were aboard the hotel-ship Safe Bristolia at Copenhagen Harbour in early 1987. Spears was born in Vancouver and studied at the Vancouver School of, Art, UBC and the University of Copenhagen. For 24 years she has resided in Denmark, returning to Canada regularly to teach.

Spears has tried to
capture the revelation of secret hope and private excitement in the features of each of her subjects. Whether she has deliberately posed her subjects is not known, but in their postures and expressions she has captured the f&ndamental character of each.
A few entries are very loose sketches. These are the sort that a student artist might feel insecure about presenting to an instructor. A practiced and perceptive artist, Spears recognizes in them the very sensitivity for the subject she has tried to
Spears’ art is not unfinished, but she does settle on an incomplete representation of sensible reality. She is reaching beyond the matter of her subjects, towards their internal sensibilities. Thus her portraits and other compositions seem to skim across the image of reality, concentrating on aspects of the scenes which represent her intended theme: the expression on a face, or the closeness and intimacy between human bodies. A few, simple strokes capture the essence of a child’s tousled bed cover, a lock of stringy hair, or the embrace of two hands.

Halfway through January, you’d expect all that end-of-one&&e, dawn&g-of-a-new hype to be done. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen enough best of the decade lists to last for me another ten years or so.

by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff There definitely was a time when Clapton deserved the nickname God from the British subway artists, but after his days with Cream and his bout with drugs which nearly destroyed him, his career took a turn for the worst. Although he survived that, he was then relegated to starring on other people’s albums and touring with them. Most of his last few doing albums, although phenomenally well commercially (such as 1987’s August) did not do all thiit well in the eyes of the critics. Clapton seemed td be easing off the guitar and adopting a J.J. Cale-type voice so that he wouldn’t look like he was riding on his former successes. His last outing was the boxed set Crossroads, a beautiful voyage through Clapton’s career, meandering from his Cream days to his stints
with Derek and the Dominoes, and ending with quite a few selections from his late 80’s albums. Journeyman continues that sojourn with a definite improvement over some of his lame mid-eighties albums such as 84’s Behind the Sun. The two strongest tracks are both covers, the original (Willie Mae Thornton) Hound Dog and Bo Diddley’s Before You Accuse Me. Other bound-to-be-favorites (because they have that cool blues part) are the first single pretending and Hard Times. One of the most impressive parts of this album is a document of one of the

One Sunday in early December, 1 was leaving London. A snowstorm slowed the city and taxis were at least an hour in demand. I needed to be at the VIA station to catch the 2110 to Kitchener. Somehow I was driven there. A guy I vaguely remember having a beard said that the trains were running on time after I asked and so I purchased my ticket and boarded the waiting coach, We waited almost an hour for the Sarnia connection and if you hang on a minute, I’ll make the comparison that ties this Breeding Ground LP to the story. I was sitting vis a v-is this woman named Bernadette who is a manager at a Mary Brown’s Chicken. Beside me was sitting a nursing student, His name was Dale.

But the rest of the coach and I gathered that he was a first year them student here. By St. Mary’s, we were ready to throttle the bastard. You see, he was expounding upon the scientific virtues of UW, saying that all arts students got the wobblies so bad at the horrific number of parties they attended that -1dS remember their names.

In post-season fashion, Waterloo knotted the game at 46-46 on a Chris Moore free throw to end regulation time. Then, behind by .one point inside the final second of overtime, Chris Troyak sank a jumper from the top of the key to clinch the victory for UW. That win, coupled with a 75-59 whipping of Brock the previous Saturday in St. Catherines, puts the Warriors on a three game winning streak after a slow start in league play.

We are already five games into the OUAA basketball regular season and not one team has taken on a dominant role. Lakehead upset Western in overtime, 69-83, in one game of a weekend doubleheader in Thunder Bay, eliminating the Mustangs from recognition as the only undefeated team in the OUAA West,

Waterloo and Guelph shot a pitiful 33 percent on field goals and a shaki 62 percent at the gift box. B&h sqcads played a manto-man defence for the entire game and there wasn’t a full court press in sight. Let’s pick up the game with l:l7 left in regulation time and the Warriors behind 45-46. Waterloo commits three fouls while pressing in the next 42 seconds, but the Gryphons choke at the charity stripe, missing all three. With five ticks left on the clock, Zienchuk throws up a prayer from 18. The ball balances on the rim for what seems like an eternity and, unfortunately, falls out. Moore reaches for the rebound and is fouled. At the line with the Gryphon fans heckling him, Moore nervously misses both free throws. However, Guelph is called on a lane violation on the second toss and Moore gets a third chance, This time he sinks it, sending the contest into extra time. Guelph gets the early lead in overtime but Waterloo shaves it down to 53-52 with 0:16 remaining. The Warriors commit a sacrificial foul to get the ball back
The highlight of the game involved a routine slam dunk by Ron Braley, who was open like 7-Eleven on the weak side. The tame slam dunk caused the ball to remain trapped in the tight mesh for a split second while Braley held onto the rim. When he let go, the ball flew back up out of the rim, nullifying the basket. Sq, when Braley was in the same situation the secbnd time, he did the slam dunk backwards and jammed it down with authority. Zienchukpaced the Warrior attack with 21 points (7-for-8 from the field) and played an exhausting 38 minutes. Braley 11 points and ripped drained down the same in rebounds. A fine solo of string music was put forth by Jason Poag, who went a perfect eight-for-eight at the line. Troyak and rookies John Hamilton and Moore just missed the double digits in scoring. Hamilton added eight rebounds to his fine performance. Brock forward John Demott canned ten of his 14 points in the second half to lead the Badger offence. 6‘9” center Gord Wood (OIJAA Athlete of the Week last week) netted 11 points and added 15 to his extraordinary rebounding totals. Waterloo shot a mediocre 51 percent from the field and a dismal 60 percent at the line. In a disa,sterous air show, the Badgers nailed only 35 percent from the hardwood and 46 percent on granny tosses.
and the Gryphons miss the free throw once again.

Building from their own end out, the Warriors stayed ahead for the entire game, winning 75-59. Interestingly enough, while Brock was ranked eighth in Canada going into the game, Waterloo held the Badgers to 20 points beloti their season average.
“This was our best 40 minute performance since late November,“ said McCrae. “It was nice to follow up the win over McMaster with another solid performance here at Brock.” - The Warriors next home game is tomorrow [Saturday, January 27) when they have a rematch with Windsor at 2 p.m. It is also the- 16th annual Mike Moser

Mike Moser Memorial Awards
Jim by Rich Nicbol Imprint staff

“He was something special.” “He made the most of his abilities.” “His ability to set goals for himself and then to work towards those goals is a mood& that we could all follow.” “His ability to commit so much time to basketball and to still maintain an outstanding academic record was amazing.” “I never saw a player who worked as hard as Mike did.” “The way he went at things, everybody .was touched by his fife.” “He represented a quahty of life - it was a real loss when he died.” These were just some of the many compliments given to the late great University of Waterloo basketball legend, Mik,e Moser. Eireryone, from national and university basketball coaches and players, to fans, family, and friends, recognized Moser as one of the most outstanding athletes ever to play the game. This Saturday’s OUAA mat-
chup between the Windsor Lancers and our own Waterloo Warriors will be the 16th annual Mike Moser Memorial Game, honouring the remarkable legend. Also in tribute to Moser, the university established the Mike Moser Memorial Fund, which provides bursary awards to third or fourth year students in financial need who have an exemplary academic record and wl-& h&e achieved a high level of accomplishment in extracurricular activities. This year’s Mike Moser Award recipients will be announced at half-time at the PAC on Saturday afternoon. They are: Jim Closs, Brian Damman, Michelle McCrory, Maureen Owens, Dave Shaw, and Pat ?lelford. The fund was established through donations from inter&ted individuals and for a number of years, the proceeds from the Annual Mike Moser Memorial Game were turned over to the Memorial Fund. The fund now stands at over$25,000. Anyone interested in contributing to the Moser fund are asked to forward $eir repittan-
ces to either Joanne Wade, clothe UW Registrar’s Office or Paul Condon, c/o the UW Athletic Department. Receipts for income tax purposes will be issubd for all donations of $10 or more. Moser’s amazing career began at Forest Heights Collegiate in Kitchener, where he excelled in high school basketball, volleyball, and track and field. Under the guidance of then head coach Don McCrae, Mike led the march to the All Ontario High School Basketball Championship in 1970 for the Forest Heights Trojans. in his first year of post-secondary play in 1971-72, Moser accepted a basketball scholarship at Brown Universitv iii Provi-
dence, RI. The following year, he came to the University of Waterloo, registered in kinesiology, and joined the basketball Warriors. There, he met up again with McCrae, who became Warrior skipper in the fall of 1971. &I his brief two and one-half year career at Waterloo, Moser amassed enough points and stats that many of his records still stand today, sixteen years after his death. His death came suddenly on January l&1975, while the Warriors were in exhibition play in Florida. Mike was sidelined with what was thought to be a bad flu virus, hut a heart infection developed, resulting in his sudden death. ti aterloo, in respect for Moser,
introduced only four players in their starting lineup for the remainder of the 1974-75 season. The same team went on to win the CIAU championship, reflecting as a goodbye gift to Moser. In testament to Moser’s achievements, the CIAU named its annual Most Valuable Player Award after him. At the time of his death, Moser was also a player on Canada’s Natiotial Basketball Team, preparing for the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, During the Montreal Games, the players wore Moser’s number ten on their jerseys in memory of their great teammate. Mike had participated in internat ion al competitions in

Catherine Mainguy, and Tina Lukezic all made it into the top ten. Martina finished third, Catherine eighth, and Tina was tenth. Maria Burton took over fourth spot for the Athenas with a 12th place finish, Erin ChurchiT was l6th, and Linda Glenday 18th. Again, the women’s team had to settle for second place, but this week it was UWO who triumphed. Western
The Athenas showed their strength again by putting all six racers in the top 18. Martina Rauter,
finished with 112 points compared to Waterloo’s 9 1. The Warriors suffered a little more with the conditions. Peter Bier, Waterloo’s top-seeded slalom racer, was havmg a good run until the fiftfi last gate. It was here that Peter’s ski hit the gate straight on and it happened to slide to the wrong side of the pole, causing him to straddle the gate and
be disqualified. Colin Rogers had problems with the course as well. Colin struggled on the pitch in the top third of the course and ended up skiing out. Third-seed racer Greg Hemphill had trouble again this week, but managed to gain 12 points for the team with 29th placing. John MacFarlane recovered from a fall to come in 12thas the Warriors’ top finisher.
Andy Dawson and Richard Burton pulled through with two smq finishes: Andy 17th and Richard 21st. The Warriors dropped to fifth place this week in the team standings, but will be looking for revenge on Feb ruary 2 when it is their turn to set the Slalom in the Pepsi University Racing Series.
Nordic skiing ST. PAUL’S
Driving was terrible skiing was great! by Toni Mogren After threading their way up the highway 400 “wrecking yard” through freezing rain and snow, the UW cross country ski team arrived in Midland just in time for the women’s five km race. With little warm-up and no knowledge of the course, the nordie Athenas were in a tough spot against six other university teams. UW’s Fiona Griffith had a fine topten finish with Brigid Rowan one minute, 25 seconds behind. Other Athenas who raced in this adverse situation were Kathleen Fraser, Eva Suny-Sole, and Robyn Wheeldon. The nordic Warriors, with more time to warm up and pre-ski the course, raced against three other
OUAA first-place contenders: Laurentian, Carleton, and Queen’s, as well as Western, U of Toronto, U of Guelph, and McMaster. Lakehead also has a shot at number one in the division, but did not race on this day. The Warriors finished a strong third behind Carleton and Laurentian. Chris Rogers was tenth with a 10 km time of 35 minutes, ten seconds, just ahead of Dave Lumb’s 35~17. Other counters in our top four scores were Ken MacLeod (37:35) and Trevor Riclcwood (37.40). Other Waterloo times were John Kim (38:09), Dave Baerg (38:25), Bill Cameron (39:10), Roy Streem (39:15), Steve Paradine (39~291, Bruce Klemmets (40.05), J.P. Pinard
race, and that’s what racing is alI about: training hard and making improvements,” said Farrance. Next week, Waterloo races at Udora, north of Toronto, or Duntroon, south of Collingwood, depending on snow. National class skier Mark Rob will join the nordic men fresh (maybe tired) from top-ten skiing in the Canadian Championships. The next few weeks will be exciting as final team selection is almost finished and inter-team competition is intense.

The University of Waterloo and McGinnis Landing are pleased to have chosen Louise Waite as the female Athlete of the Week. Louise is a third-year kinesiology student from Sarnia, Ontario.
