stop complaining


U.W. engineering by &ic Langford and Laurie Litwack Special to Imprint With the largest voter turnout in recent memory, University of Waterloo engineering students have taken the issue of underfunding into their own hands. The Voluntary Student Contribution (VSC] is a fully refundable $75 fee which will be included on engineers’ fee statements each term. It is aimed at improving the quality of undergraduate engineering education at the UW. The University of Toronto and Queen’s University engineering students have implemented fees, similar to the VSC, which are immediately injected into the faculty operating budget. In contrast to these programs, all money raised by the Voluntaty Student Contribution will be placed in an endowment fund to address the problem of underfunding in the long term, The Waterloo Engineering Endowment will generate income for the faculty every year. The fund will be student-controlled with guidance and advice from faculty, industry+ and alumni. Three governing bodies: The board of Directors, the Steering Committee and the Funding Council each must approve the funding allocations in order that the money be put to optimal use. The money will be spent exclusively on improving under-

graduation. Their commitment demonstrated the need for increased funding and their desire to make a difference. I Avi Belinksy and John Vellinga, both graduating in 1990, took the idea one step further

Realizing how much their money could benefit UW engineering, the graduating class of 1989 initiated the Plummer’s Pledge. Each student who participates, donates money to the faculty for three years after

Student Life buMding by Stephen Fischer Imprint staff

The long awaited Student Life Building finally appears to be within reach. First suggested in 1986, the praposal has received serious support from the university administration. Federation of Students’ President Dave Readman says that he would likq to see the project underway by early 1~11. The proposal is in response to campus surveys which have underscored the two greatest impediments, to -student social life: 1athletic and social facilities;

New Campus Centre

Phase one will consist 6f a fullsize indoor running track with additional space for other athletic facilities, The estimated cost for this phase is $8 million. Unlike Fed Hall, which is paid -for solely by the student body (we will continue paying $7.50 a term until 2005 A,D. for that one), this time the administration is willing to pick up part of the cost. The government does not fund non-academic canipus facilities. The university has already earmarked $1 million ‘and expects to raise an additional $2 million. later on. That leaves a shortfall of $5 million to be paid for by the student body. For those who fear being gouged by this new project, Readman says the burden is less daunting than it seems. Students have been paying a $10 fee each term for the past several years to pay off the Columbia Ice Fields. As of last month, that project is now complete.

& a resuli, the new Student Lif6 Building will consist of an indoor running track complex which could also double for convocation ‘ceremonies, and more recreational and meeting space to sompliment the already overcrowded Campus Centre.

anddevised a-plan to involve the students to make a larger impact on their own education. One afternoon in POETS, the engineering pub, Vellinga and Belinksy were discussing their concerns about the underfunding situation and the future of engineering education. They discussed Princeton’s endowment of $2.8 billion, which earns interest greater than twice the entire budget of the University of Waterloo. Agreeing it was time to stop complaining and time to take action, Vellinga and Belinsky proposed to develop an endowment for Waterloo engineers. The fund was approved with 94 per cent in favour in the B-society and with the leadership of Jay Gibson, A-society president, 95 per cent voted in favour of the endowment on the other stream, The fund is built on three pillars: the Voluntary Student Contribution, the Plummer’s Pledge, and Employer Mat thing Contribution. As the direct beneficiaries of the endowment, students contribute and set the example for government, industry and graduates. ‘The future of the endowment will depend upon contribution by undergraduates and donations from others concerned about the future of engineering education. The fund’s success will be measured by the qualiry of UW engineering students and the value of their degrees in the future.

Phase two of the project will see a great deal more space for social and recreational facilities: there wi’ll.also be room for campus clubs and societies. Construction of this phase is expected to commence before the end of the century.

UW President, Doug Wright was recently appointed as the Prime Minister’s representative on the newly formed Council of Ministers of Education. The council was set up as the result of a decision at the first ministers’ conference in Ottawa last fall to establish a task force on human resource development. .’ The task force’s review of education comes out of a concerq?hat current students are losing their ability to ope,rate successfully in the modern world, Wright has suggested that mathematics and science become mandatory subjects like English, therefore ensuring stu; dents will have technical proficiency along with linguistic proficiency. Wright’s work with the council is expected to involve about three months. He is -already a member of the Prime Minister’s nations1 advisory board on science and technology. Presently, UW’s big man is out of the country and unavailable for further comment. Look for a more in-depth analysis iir a mid-March issue of the Imprint,

Dirty tricks spark call for reform

Election by Fleur Macqueen Imprint staff Many of the problems that came up during the Federation of Students’ election were the result of an inexperienced election committee, says Chief Returning Officer Terry . Playford* That, and as almost all the Federation candidates believe, the inadequate election policy. Numerous issues came up during the campaign that were not clearly outlined in the policy. The 1990 election committee was the largest ever. Along with Playford, it consisted of student councilors Scott Lapish, Ben Rhode, Scott Garrett, and’xevin Shoom, who served as Chief Returning Officer for the CFS referendum until demoted. Playford said she made the election committee larger than usual to handle the CFS referendum, and also for her personal protection. She knew almost all of the candidates running, and was assodiated with the No-CFS campaign in 1987. Election committee members are all volunteers, and are expected to run a fair, clean campaign, This year’s race was more problematic than previous campaigns. “The tactics of the candidates this year were rather harsh,” said Scott. Garrett. “It was very frustrating for us I , . . They asked us to enforce the rules, and then they snuck around and blatantly violated the rules.”

neglected during the bus-y campaign period. He then told Tudor he wouldn’t be attending. He believed Tudor was going more for social reasons than election ones, Shoom said. By this date, most students intending to vote by mail in the co-op mail-out would probably have done so, as the ballots had been mailed three weeks earlier, He decided not to go for personal reasons, not election ones. He said, “I knew when I decided (not to go] that the election committee would not‘ say ‘that’s okay, you don’t have to go. . . . I thought I made it clear (to Roger) that if I was sticking to my duties as an election officer I’d go.” After Tudor informed them, the election committee demoted Shoam from the position of CFS chief returning officer, “I probably would have resigned from the commit tee altogether, but there was a lot of work still to do,” he said.

grievances to be aired President-elect John Vellinga said, “If I had gone (to the WatPub) 1 never would have ratted on the guy, but I was really upset about it.” This is the first year candidates have been fined for policy violations, and all but VPUA candidate Frank Stendardo were fined. The fines were instituted at the urging of the present Fed-


eration executive, Playford said, and had only been discussed in reference to posters. Both candidates and election committee members complained that the election rules were too vague. “I really don’t like to make the rules as I go along,” Playford said, and that she felt some of the issues, such as the Ottawa WatPub fining, would have been better dealt with. in the election committee’s postelection recommendations. “The rules have to be specified more ‘clearly,” Stendardo said. “Regardless of who wins,” VPUA candidate Nick Vatalaro said, “we have to look at the way the elections are run; look at the way the, election committee works.” He felt the communication between the election committee and candidates was “poor.” At two and a half weeks, “the campaign period is too long,” says VPOF Tim Collins. “You become so drained. You’re expected to still be a student: you’re speaking to classes, which makes it difficult to go to your own classes.” It is likely the campaign period will be shortened to ten days, VPUA Fran Wdowczyk says. The next Federation of Students’ council. meeting, on Sunday, February 25 at LOO pm in Needles Hall 3001, promises to be a hot one, as the election committee kill be reporting on the election, and the candidates are expected to bring up their grievances.

Winterfest _i-s coming! * by Mark Kemp-Gee Imprint staff

Winterfest is back for another year, and it’s going to be better than ever, says organizer Dave Beaulieu. Mark off March 1-4 on your calendars, because there are numerous events lined up for those Organized by the Federation of Students, Winterfest aims to rival Homecoming as the major event of the year at UW. And from th looks of the schedule, this year’s Winterfest is sure to offer something for everyone. According to Beaulieu, the focus of this year’s Wi’nterfest will be the Tent, located on the PAC Patio, right in front of the PAe. The Tent will be open from Thursday to Saturday, with a dif erent event planned for each nigi II t. Other events will take-place on the Village Green, in the Bombsh d lter and in Federation Hall. Beaulieu said that in the past Winterfest has been too small and spread out - people saw the events, but did not participate. One of the organizers’ solutions has been to centre events around the PAC patio. As well, there will be an interfaculty competition this year. Every participant and volunteer will win points for their team, and prizes will be awarded based on t6tal points. Similarly, Beaulieu said, there are great prizes being awarded for each event over the weekend. The kick-off event to Winterfest is the scavenger hunt, Thursday from 4 pm to 8 pm. . Organized by the Science Society, this event will take place on campus, unlike other scavenger hunts. If you wish to participate in this event, visit the Federation of Students Office, room 235 in the Campus Centre. Then at 8 pm, in the Tent, there is a graffiti party - people can bring in shirts to have them painted. There is also an engineering society pub in the Bombshelter, at which The Phantoms will play. The first event for Friday is the paralyzing polar, plunge, from noon until 2 pm. This is a must-see event! At 2:30, a ball hockey tournament on the PAC Patio. Teams wishing to compete in the tournament can apply at the Fed Office. There are two events Friday night. For those looking for



something different, there is a square dance in the Campus Centre from 8 pm to 1 am. The dance is organized by the Waterlocr Christian Fellowship, and has been popular at other events. For Bombshelter types, there is a Mexican party Friday night at the Bomber, with prizes ineluding trips to Mexico. Saturdav, at noon, the Winter Olympics &ke place on the Village Green. Events include winter volleyball, flag football, a tug o’ war, and an obstacle course. Once again, anyone wishing to participate in these events should go to the Federation of Students Office. , There is an air band contest in the Tent . There will be about seven entries in the contest; interested groups can apply at the Fed Office.

The climax of Winterfest takes place Saturday night. For the first time, there is a semi-formal charity ball, at Federation Hall. The $15 per ‘person ticket price includes entry into Fed Hall (general admission after 8:3O is $3) and dinner. Proceeds from ticket sales go to K-W Hospital. Tickets are available at the Fed office. Afterwards, there will be an after-hours dance at Fed Hall. Beaulieu says this event will .provide “something for people who don’t want to drink.” The only event for Sunday is the regular Fed Hall brunch. Tickets for events taking place in the Tent are available from the Fed Office.

Coke and a smile?“It all happened right here twenty years ago,“, says the baby boomer, a faraway, wistful look in her eyes, seated on a misty, vernal hillside beside her flaxen-haired daughter. So begins the latest entry into the multi-billion dollar soft drink advertising sweepstakes: a remake of Coke’s “classic” “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” commercial of twenty pears ago. Seemingly it’s an attempt at a socially conscious counterpart to the Paula Abdul and Elton John abominations that assault you every time you ’ turn on MuchMusic or even the news. The commercial then proceeds to reunite the participants of the 197Q commercial in a multicultural extravaganza - not one demographic is overlooked as people, citizens of the Earth, of all creeds and races, gather on the selfsame hillside with their children to once again sing a hymn to international cooperation, peace, and harmony. Well, fine, it’s a nice gesture, and a nice sentiment. Nothing seems to have changed since the 1970 commercial, except that the chorus is no longer “It’s the real thing,” but “Can’t beat the feeling, Coca-Cola Classic.” Maybe it’s symptomatic of the times in which we live, but while the 1970 version was necessarily tainted by the underlying sales pitch, the reunion commercial absolutely reeks of sleaziness, cynicism, and opportunism. Capitalizing upon the global mood of optimism and popular liberation, the Madison Avenue gang has astutely seized a golden opportunity to make Coke the elixir of glasnost. Can’t beat that feeling of freedom and peace - the feeling of Coke. There was a time when people dreamed of the tearing down of the Iron Curtain as opening up travel, the flow of ideas, and understanding between the East and the West; now, the dissolution of the Berlin Wall has come to symbolize more than a triumph of human will: it has facilitated the flow of consumer goods from the West to the East. While it is true that political freedom without economic freedom is nearly meaningless (just ask slum-dwellers how much real power they have over their destinies), political freedom in the wake of perestroika has come to be gauged in terms of spending power. The availability of Pepsi and Levi’s is a measure of democracy. So what was the sign that democracy had truly arrived in Eastern Europe? The Soviet adoption of a multi-party system, yes, but the real media circus was the opening of the first McDonald’s in the Soviet Union. The emancipation of the Soviet working class was complete when they were given the right not only to vote in free elections, but to stuff themselves with Big Mats. Sociologist Richard Brown, in his 1987 study, Society AS Text, posits that where people were once defined by what they produced, they are now defined by what and how much they consume. To take the rhetoric of advertising and the media at its word, people are no longer stockbrokers, dental hygienists, -or steel workers, but Lean Cuisine-eaters, Coors-drinkers, Honda Accorddrivers, part of the Pepsi Generation, or the type of man who reads Playboy. And in spite of the scarcity of our resources and the widening gap between the rich and poor, conspicuous consumption is gobbling up disposable incomes at an ungodly pace: one need look no further than the size of the immodestly furnished homes with multiple car garages being built in Beechwood for proof of our compulsion to consume faster and more opulently than’anyone else, The now-dispossessed Communist overlords of Eastern Europe are rightfully reviled by their former subjects for stripping them of their basic liberties and the amenities of a bearable lifestyle, but I hope that Eastern Europe’s reaction will not be such that they swing ted1 embrace such to the other political extreme and wholehe Western icons as Donald Trump as their role Nodec. Disturbingly, Czechoslovakia welcomed shoe magnate Thomas Bata, an exploiter of workers par excellence, as a hero, unaware that an unchecked free market economy may revitalize the economy, but breed yet another generation of tyrants and econbmic subjects.

speaks against traditions

Communal To the editor, I am writing concerning the article by Judy Hollands in the February 16 issue, entitled “Engineers must act responsibly.” As an engineering student, I feel I must express my wholehearted agreement with her opinions and add some views of my own. As soon as I arrived here in IA, I noticed the American college football team mentality which the organizers were trying to impr ss on the new students. We SCFearned at everyone. Frosh week consisted of a large number of communal screaming fits using brilliant slogans such ;;,;LS,y$ems sucks,” “Chem Mech sucks,” “Artsies suck,” “Math sucks,” and “Eat shit.” I was told that all that hollering was an expression of our class and faculty spirit. My impression, though, was that there was plenty for us to be proud of as engineering students, ‘and that we didn’t have to be abusive in order to have spirit.


Students To the editor, Ah, Convocation, that special day in every student’s life where they can stand up (or kneel down) and be counted for their scholastic achievements. Ah the joy, the bliss, the stifling heat.

I wanted desperately to be a part of alI that. And I was. But I almost wasn’t.


The day before convocation, I decided to phone “Needless Hell” to make sure they had my Intent to

Almost every activity organized within engineering has beer as the prize for winning. I have even been told several times that I am not a “real engineer” because I don’t like beer. This kind of pressure to drink is something that I thought I had left behind in high school. I am proud to be an engineering student, However, I believe that incoming engineers are indoctrinated in a ridiculous, offensive fashion. It seems a’s though many engineering traditions are meant to turn well-adjusted young people into emotional infants. If we manage to remove the machismo, the “nudge-nudge, wink-wink” humour, the misogyny and the “we’re better than you are” attitude from our extracurricular activities, we will be better off, both as a profession and as individuals,

The fact that engineering is good or that one particular department within engineering is good should not preclude the validity of other areas of study. We were also taught that the highest thing on the Hierarchy of Life was the “Ridgid Tool.” Yes, I know that the tool is a five-foot long wrench donated by the Ridgid Tool company. However, in my opinion, anybody who claims that this is not meant to be a phallic symbol is either very naive or a poorliar. For a while’; EngSoc even sold boxer shorts which had “Home of the Ridgid Tool” printed on the front. It is inappropriate, offensive and stupid to teach new engineering students that the most important thing in the hierarchy of life is an erect penis. Beer also seems to be very important. Our song even says so. “We are we are . . . the engineers, we can we can . . . demolish 40 beers.”

The state of the Aboriginal People% Movement by Murray Dobbin Author and lecturer

on aboriginal


What is the current state of relations between aboriginal people and the Canadian government? One way to answer that question is to listen to aboriginal leaders. In 1988 the Assembly of First Nations chief, George Erasmus+ stated that Canadian governments are risking aboriginal violence. It was a powerful reminder of the patience aboriginal people have shown in their dealings with non-aboriginal Canadians. It also another Society identical aboriginal

contained a powerful sense of deja vu. Twenty years ago aboriginal leader, Howard Adams, then head of the Metis of Saskatchewan, attracted national attention with the warning. With the coming to office of Brian Mulroney, people find themselves back at square one,

Organizing for their rights in the 1989s+ aboriginal eople had a single adversary: the state. As a severely margina Pized people they had to deal with the state as the arbiter of non-aboriginal society. In the sixties they struggled to be recognized. They succeeded, but in the end they achieved a kind of recognition that would be their downfall, In the mid seventies the federal government began major funding to aboriginal groups. While this was in part a legitimate exercise in participatory democracy initiated by Pierre Trudeau, it also defused the possibility of violence. ’ That funding led rapidly to the bureaucratization of aboriginal organizations. Within a few short years there were nd more demonstrations, sit-ins or road blocks. Organizing skills were replaced by negotiating skills. Confrontation was replaced by accommodation. Less and less energy went into maintaining active organizations because there was no real need: the leaders had achieved the recognition needed to deal with governments. There was an implicit trade-off in this arrangement and it worked well for Ottawa. The existence of government-funded organizations with articulate spokespeople gave the government legitimacy in the eyes of non-aboriginal Canadians. The fact that the vast majority of aboriginal people still lived in poverty was no longer on the front pages. For politicians therefore it was no longer urgent. The late seventies saw a further decline of the aboriginal movement. Encouraged by federal bureaucrats, who saw program money drying up, aboriginal leaders from all sectors jumped on the constitutional bandwagon with the demand for self-governI ment. According to one official there were “bins” of money for demands put in the context of the constitution - Pierre Trudeau’s political obsession. Politics was reduced to lawyers arguing with lawyers in Ottawa board rooms. Numbers - the only real to this process. strength that poor people have - were irrelevant For aboriginal leaders, choosing the constitutional option was a gamble. It was an agenda completely controlled by the government. With their membership inactive and divided according to legal definitions of status, aboriginal organizations no longer had anything real to bargain with. Yet, until 1984 no government in Canada was willing to risk the bad press of ignoring aboriginal demands. Until Brian Mulroney. He has calculated that current aboriginal leaders are not a political threat. He is probably right. But so is George Erasmus. The next generation of leaders will be much more wary of making deals with the state. It’s frustrating for non-native people to assist native struggle in the context of these state funded organizations, But there is something you can do. Many struggles of native people are happening at the local level, for example, the Innu against low level jet flights and the Temagami-Nishnabnai to prevent clear cut logging. These struggles need the support of local people.

Honesty is stupid\ity at Fed To tie editor,

began putting words in our mouths. ApparentIy, I’m not the only one who has a negative attitude toward the staff at Fed Hall. After reading Doug Giles’ letter in the February 9 Imprint, I’ve decided that more should be said about the issue.

She said, “You had two beers? You mean three, four, maybe five?’ So we argued for a few minutfrs, wondering how our friends (who were obviously just as intoxicated as we were) could be admitted without question, but arguing was hopeless.

One Friday night three friends, two from out of town, and I went to the Bombshelter after dinner (approximately 7:OO pm), and after two heels each, we went to F+d, Hall.

So all four of us decided to leave, but as we exited, our escort (another bonehead) said, ‘You can wait in line again if you want and you’lJ probably get in.”

We entered the sign-in lime and arrived at “the desk” at about 9: 30 pm. My friend signed in one of my friends and they were allow&i in, no pro-

liar - everyone bows you can’t get back in once you leave.” But we didn’t know that, and yes, she honestly did tell us that. We waited another 45 minutes, and when we got back to the desk, a strange thing happened. Our friends who had already been allowed to enter were declared too intoxicated to enter! (No, we hadn’t had anything to drink in line.) Then one of the bouncers instigated an argument with us, after

Awareness Week

This theme was chosen for several reasons, First of all, it emphasizes personal choice. Everyone has their own morals, values’ and beliefs about sex and any decisions they make should be consistent with these. Also, the theme recognizes that sexuality awareness is a lifelong process in which one decision often leads to another. A common decision that most students have made is whether or not to be sexually active. There can be a lot of pressure from friends, partners, and society and it takes strength to focus on your own feelings of what you want to do. If you are not sure whether or not you’re ready for something, it probably means that you aren’t. Celibacy can be a positive experience, both for couples who are in a relationship and individuals who are not. Deciding to engage in sexual activity does not necessarily mean that one has to have sexual intercourse. There are many couples who are very content with “outercourse” activities such as massage, mutual masturbation and oral sex, When a person does decide to have intercourse, it is important for them to learn about the various methods of birth-control that are available. There is no one best method of birth control - you have to choose the method that is most suitable for you. Precautions must be taken against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) if you have intercourse with someone who has had sexual partners in the past. Wearing a latex condom is the best protectiofi available from STDs, and using & contraceptive foam containing nonoxynol-9 provides additional protection. When the above decisions have been made, practising safe and responsible sex can lead to a wonderful, fulfilqling experience with little risk of potential consequences such as unplanned pregnancy or sexually transmitted disease. Sex should always be an expression of love but unfortunately it can also be associated with violence. Services such as the Kitchener-Waterloo Sexual Assault Support Centre (741-8633) and UW’s Sexual Harassment Officer (Denise Angove, ext. 3541) exist to help those who have been victims of date rape, sexual assault or harassment.

Sexuality awareness involves more than making informed decisions, It is also the procesg of developing, and becoming comfortable with, one’s sexual identity. This

passes the buck

University funding cuts by Jidy Holland8 Imprint staff Wilson’s budget announced 3 Tuesday hangs like a black cloud over post-secondary itistitutions across Canada. A freeze on transfer payments used to fund education, health and welfare will leave provinces with $2.6 billion-less than anticipated for the next two years. Essentially the federal government has passed off the crisis facing universities and colleges to the provinces, The Ontario Federation of Students is outraged over the announced freeze, which will cost Ontario $2.5 billion over the next nine years. “The government is talking out of both sides of their mouth,” said Edith Garneau, OFS chairperson. “Mulroney talks about improving education and skills training in one breath, and a few months later tables a budget which freezes support for post-secondary education. We find this extremely hypocritical.” ,

Nixm looking “for any reason to increase tuition fees” Actual effects of this federal budget will be more clear when the provincial Treasurer, Robert Nixon, announces his budget in April. Nixon will have to make allowances for the transfer payment cutbacks, and he recently admitted to OFS representatives that he is looking “for any reason to increase tuition fees.” Ontario students already face an eight per cent tuition increase for the upcoming year.

enrolment. Laiken mentioned a few alternatives facing post-secondary education. One alternative is to restrict the number of students allowed into university in order to maintain high standards, This action would make a point to the government.

Facifig the highest enrolment levels ever, university administrators have their hands tied and are increasingly implementing incidental fees like the work report marking fee here at UW. Administrators are also looking to private sector for more financial support*

I OFS rally March 15 to protest funding


Garneau‘also urges students to write letters to newspapers like the Toronto Star and The Globe and Maril. UW accounting professor Stanley Laiken, whose areas of expertise include federal budgets, thinks that “something more constructive than protests must be done to have an effect.” For a number of years, universities have faced restrictions on tuition increases and expandingF

Another alternative is to go to a private school system, such as the American one, where alumni scholarships and bursaries allow people from all backgrounds to attend universities. Currently it costs approximately $25,000 Canadian to attend an American private university for just one’yeir.

The OFS has organized ti rally against underfunding for March IS at the offices of Ontario Colleges and Universities. In addition to encouraging students to attend the protest, Garneau urges students to write letters to the local politicians and to the finance minister’ in Ottawa. “Students must realize that their education is a right and not a privilege.”




“If we are to do our job properly we might have to do this. Our goal is universally accessible education’ but the govern-. ment has not backed universities with the required resources.”

The OFS does not approve of increased private sector support because often their interests dictate where the money is spent. “Waterloo has considerable involvement in the private sector and it is not fair,” Garneau commented. She added that she understands the administration’s actions are necessary in light of the funding crisis.

Overall, Laiken commented that Wilson’s budget was “dishonest .” Rather than making meaningful cutbacks, the federal government is passing on the task. The extent of the budget’s damage to universities will be revealed when Nixon delivers his provincial budget in_ April. .

As we enter into the 1ggos, Canada’s manufacturers face the relentless forces of both globalization of business, and the concern for our one and only environment. .The future of companies will be heavily based on how they deal with these forces. Now that governments and the public realize the necessity of setting up and strictly enforcing environmental guidelines, Canadian manufacturing corporations are quickly looking at cleaning up their act. Intense programs such as MISA (Municipal Ipdustry Strategy for Abatement) set up by the Ontario government, based on a similar U.S.-E.P.A. program, have established past loadings of contaminants into

our lakes and rivers. MISA is currently setting stringent levels on company discharges. AS similar programs are enforced throughout Canada and the U.S., and the maximum discharge levels are pushed lower and lower, new technology, processes and expensive equipment are required, This can only be achieved with a firm commitment by corporations to the environment, as is becoming more commonly seen in corporate mission statements. The catch-22 to this is that with the intensity of information exchange, any corporation that does not handle the environment responsibly will be boycotted by their consumers rendering them incapable of competing in a global market. In 1989 the gold medal for International Corporate Environ-

mental Achievement was awarded to The Dow Chemical Company by the World Environment Centre. This award noted Dow’s global commitment to the responsible management of environmental, health, and safety practices. It also recognized Dow’s deep interest in protecting the environment for future generations to enjoy. On Friday, March 2, Dow’s manager for Health and Environmental Services Development, Mr. Robert Lutz, will be speaking in the Davis Centre (Room 1302) at 8:30 pm. Lutz will be discussing Dow’s pioneering environmental 8trat egies such as Dow’s zero effluent mandate and the destruction of toxic waste. This talk is sponsored by the Chemical Engineering Society.

Unlike so many other black inmates, seemingly consigned to the scrap heap set aside for so-called habitual criminals, Malcolm X found personal salvation; in his voracious reading of scholarly works and in Elijah Muhammed’s Lost-Found Nation of Islam’ - more commonly known as the Black Muslims. After his release from prison, years later, Malcolm became increasingly more powerful within the church organization, As the head of the Harlem mosque, his street corner speeches brought many converts into the fold. His example combined with Nation of Islam programs s.uch as inmate counselling and drug rehabilitation helped many black prisoners find a way out of the cycle of crime and drugs.

bombed. He felt death looming ever nearer, and he walked toward it, not in glory, but resigned in the knowledge that, despite the Police’s offer of roundthe-clock protection and friends’ offers to find him safety on another trip to Africa, Death would find him. On February 21, while speaking at the Audubon Ballroom in New York, Malcolm was gunned down by Talmadge Hayer, Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson. Seven shotgun slugs had shattered his heart, others wrecked his aorta, lodged against his spine and punctured both his lungs. He was declared dead shortly after arriving at the Vanderbilt Clinic. Perhaps the scale and consequence of some events is so huge that humans cannot find means to judge them -adequately. But the ass&s&ation of any

Rapidly, his power as a speaker made him the most recognizable figure within the Nation of Islam short of Elijah Muhammed himself. Eventually, in 1963, Malcolm was appoirited the national spokesman for the Nation of Islam, the position from which he would fall. After J.F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, in the face of Elijah November tiuh,ammed’s orders to ‘remain silent, Malcolm X publicly likened the assassination to “chickens coming home to roost.” With this statement, X attempted to make the connection between the assassination and the atmosphere of vialence which Kennedy had engendered through foreign policy initiatives like the Bay of Pigs invasion and domestic inactivity during civil rights actions. JFK’s halo was too bright to tolerate sny type of criticism and Malcolm was portrayed as a grave-dancer, a public image which the Nation of Islam could ill afford, In the enquing furor, Malcolm was iuspended from speaking publicly For three months, after which he chose to se’parate himself from the Nation, making official a break which had been anticipated.for years. After his split with the Nation of [slam, Malcolm founded two organizations, Mosque Inc., and the Organization of Afro-American Unity. The latter group sought to connect the struggle of the American Negro with the struggles Df oppressed peoples around the world and was modelled closely upon the Organization of African Unity, to whom Malcolm turned for moral and financial support. By escaping the constraints -imposed by an American and Black Muslim viewpoint, he underwent a liberation of his own spirit. During the last year of his life, Malcolm made two trips to Africa, and during one of these, a pilgrimage to Mecca. These trips opened lis eyes fully to the internationalist beiefs with which he had long empahized, but could not fully express Mithin the limiting confines of the Naion. Further, the pan-racial unity which he experienced during his conrersion to the true Islamic faith at vlecca forced him to relent on the hardine positions he had taken with respect to role of whites in the black struggle for self-worth and self-definition. He also sought a greater role in the mainstream struggle from which he had always either been excluded or had himself shunned. But Malcolm had been

person of significance often produces so much evidence, testimony and information, that inconsistencies and ambiguities are inevitable. The death of Malcblm X was no different. In the inquests which followed the death, Hayer’s guilt was questioned and the Police’s perceived inaction and lackadaisical response were examined while conspiracy theories of every kind came to the Burface, The guilty verdicts and explanation of a Black Muslim vengeance “hit” stood. When examining the career’and legacy of Malcolm X, one must really try to come to a basic understanding of the dominant Afro-American sociological/demographic trends of the 20th century. These can be roughly described in two words: migration and urbanization. With emancipation, large numbers of blacks began to migrate from the rural South, not only to escape their slave past and their pseudo-,slave sharecropping present, but also to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the industrialization of the North. The steady flow of the itith century turned into a flood in the early part of the 20th century, and an absolute deluge in the mid to late 20th century. Between 1910 aqd 1940, over 1.5 million blacks moved out of the South, primarily to the industrial North, though the realities in the western states have been somewhat similar. In the period ~940-1970 over 4.5 million blacks left the South. There has been a consequent shift in the distribution of employment during these time periods. For while a shift away from farm work is a general trend to be found in all societies during this century, the swing has been enormous

legacy > of words

Seven shotgun slugs sent Malcolm X to his death. photo cOuftesy within the Afro-American population. The percentage of white Americans involved in farm labour decreased from 28 per cent to 3.9 per cent from 1910 to 1970, while agriculturally-based blacks for the same period diminished from 54.6 per cent to 3.8 per cent -a staggering shift more than double the proportional magnitude of that for whites. with this data in hand, we can now begin to address some of the fundamentalissues which separated Malcolm X from the mainstream of the civil rights movement and made his voice the first uniquely black urban voice while ensuring the growth of his legacy. In simple terms, one ideological particular estranged Malcolm from the rest of the civil rights movemynt - his rejec-

tion of non-violence. The great myth associated with this rejection, perpetuated with near-venal spite within conventional white media, was thdt his rejection of non-violence constituted an approval of violence. His words “defend ourselves by any means while misinterpreted by necessary”, wh!ites and blacks alike (hello’ Black . Panthers!) as a call to arms, have their truest origin in the words of 17th century philosopher Thomas Hobbes, when he wrote in Levi&an; “by all means we can to defend ourselves+’ outlining laws and rights granted to man at birth. To Malcolm X, the hard lessons of the street had taught’ him the necessity of self-defence. Moreover, he defined selfdefence to include the defence . - > . of. -spouse _ - . .

of Life

and family. He saw non-violence as merely justification for a continuance of the slave-like abandonment of the male role. More essentially, what separated Malcolm from the central thrust of the civil rights movement was that he was the first black leader to address the urban condition. In the urban state, the freedom marches, bus protests, and other types of conventional civil rights protest were irrelevant, Leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. found themselves out-of-touch with the desires of urban blacks; they knew how to integrate buses, schools and restaurants, but they had no idea how to bring integrity back to the fractured black psyche. As the two great leaders of their time,

if not all time, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. are%constantly placed in opposition. While at one level, this seems to cloud the essential fact that they were both pursuing improvements for the black race, the contrast is useful in illuminating certain facts about each man. In essence, they fought two different battles within the same war - King for the bodies of blacks, Malcolm for their minds. In the South, where Martin Luther King fought his successful battles, there were still physical victories to be won: segregation of public facili: ties to be overcome, voters to be registered, lynch mobs to resist. His Baptist preacherisms spoke to these masses and hysical inspired them to acts of great courage in the face of Preju B ice and

danger. TG the urbanized blacks, distanced from the traditions of country church and old-time revival, King’s vision was an empty one - he failed to come to grips with the destroyed masculine image and family structure which made the growth of community and escape from the cycles of crime, drugs and poverty impossible. While the Southern struggle was about moving the masses, Malcolm X saw that this was only a first step. The greater struggle for freedom had to be fought within the mind of each black man and woman. Mental freedom and restoration of the black self-image, starting with the restoration of the black male image, was the core of the urban struggle, “What focus the Negro family has had, parentally, has been for the most part matriarchal . . . the leftover evils of slavery . . . contributed to the suppression of .the father figure in the already weakened and sometimes broken family circle.“(Wyatt Tee Walker from Nothing bat u Man.) There was a whole new set of realities and concerns in the inner city: unemployment, poverty, crime, addiction. These realities, like the ones in the South, left no opportunity for the recovery of balance within the black family unit; the mother still bore the burden while the dissipated male image perpetuated itself, In his struggle to restore unity to black society through the redemptionof the black male image, Malcolm often seemed to take black women for granted. As a member of the Nation of Islam, he was constrained by Elijah Muhammed’s own narrow, archaic perceptions of women’s roles. A favorite slogan within the-Nation was “We must protect our most, valuable property: our women.” Noble though the protectionist sentiment may be, the definition of women as “property” was a step back from the matriarchal roles which they had shouldered. After he crawled out fromunderneath the dominant male image of Elijah Muhammed, he began’ to understand black women in a different light. And though the male image would always be his primary concern, there was cause for hope that, had he lived longer, he might come to a more acceptable view of female roles. The posthumous deification of Malcolm X flatly refuses to recognize that during his lifetime, Malcolm failed in many ways as a leader+ He didn’t build

any practical grassroots organization with which his work could be continued. He actually alienated much of his original following with his sudden change in direction in 1963-64. His’ legacy consisted of words - onpaper and tape which not only transmit the brilliance of his thought, but also the magnificence of his delivery and ability to communicate at an elementary level with his audience; It is an edifice of incisive wisdom and brilliance upon which much of the ensuing civil rights struggle has been based. The Black Panthers: Eldridge Cleaver, H. Rap Brown, Huey Newton and others, took Malcolm’s exhortations and turned them into a conCrete platform for re-education and reform. Formerly non-violent leaders like Stokely Carmichael began to move away from their previous stances.

Malcolm X must be judged as a prophet or visionary. His influence has grown by leaps and bounds while the influence of the more traditional leaders has diminished. One need only examine the leaders and ideologies to whom the black youth now gravitates. Public Enemy, Spike Lee and Living Colour have all made the concepts of “mind revolution” and. Afrocentrism ,preached by Malcolm X prominent within their work. Chuck D. of Public Enemy made it a personal crusade to take the ideological platform of MalcoIm and translate it into hip-hop, the voice of black youth. His face become icon, his words creed, Malcolm’s ideas live more vibrantly now in the hearts and minds of Afro-Americans than when he was alive. He was upon the leading edge of a sociological wave which washed through the entirety of black society. -The same battle fought by Malcolm to ’ reshape the black self-image goes on today. If anything, inner city violence, drugs and self-destruction have escalated from the time of Malcolm X and the struggle being waged by the next generations has become more desperate, more crucial, Malcolm X was a warrior, who fought the dual enemies of white oppression and black self-destruction with ‘words, the most powerful weapons at his disposal. He was fierce, proud, unbending to a fault. His Iife was the greatest evidence that he could offer to his audience, the dispossessed urban black, that redemption for blacks was no further away than their own hearts and minds.

by R.J. Staedsi Imprint staff

and 1. M. Ryan

Black and blue, shimmery blue. White and black, patterned black. Purple velvet was a bit overdressed, but once again, our selections put all the others to shame. Wardrobe aside, there WQS a show to see. The Centre in the’ Square’s Phantom of the Opera was okay. I mean, after all the T.O. Phantom hype, what could you expect? Expectations just wereLt to be met, although I can’t honestly say that I had any, aside from topping my Valentine’s

Day with a fancy outing and a good show. And a good show it was. If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past ninety years or so, then you know the Phantom story. The details sometimes vary, but the basic plot involves the mysterious masked -dude who haunts the Paris Opera house, longing for the beautiful Christine, who, alas, loves another. In the version that raced the Centre in the Square B ast week, the set was versatile, smoothly

memorable! shifting to show all levels of the cavernous Paris Opera House (which really is built above a lake).

The singing was pretty good, although at one point the smoke machine was 16uder than Chris-

delicious tine’s voice. The actors all knew their lines, a given, I suppose, but some .were playing up to six parts. Not to give the story away, but when the Phantom’ abducts Christine, the other characters search for her in all areas of the opera house. They wandered through the aisles and into the balconies of the auditorium, actually shining their new-age lanterns into the faces of some members of the audience. That was kind of fun.

Even neater was the way they made the big chandelier swing dangerously over our heads. The ‘Centre’s so well-designed for that kind of foolery. No Beechtjan alienation here. But if I had to use one word to sum up the production, it would have to be . . t well, corny. The jokes were predictable, although the audience was appreciative. And they were cute. Oh, and in case you’re wondering no, this was not the melodramatic rendition of the opera as

ruptured! envisioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber. This was the “Original London Stage Musical” comic version, directed by Ken Hill. (If that name means anything to


YOU*) I guess it’s a testimony to the enduring timelessness of Gaston LeRoux’s original story, that it is still recognizable no matter how it’s being staged. Whether it’s Lloyd Webber’s ompous spectacle, Ken Hill’s Pightweight joke-fest, Lon Chaney’s screamfeat or even (gulp) De Palma’s rock satire, the plot retains that certain psychic resonance. Ken Hill’s interpretation of Phantom reminded me of those Christmas pantomimes my parents used td take me to when I was a youngster. Larger than life, bumbling characters stumble around a fairly elaborate set; throw in some corny jokes, a seethrough plot and a modicum of suspense and you’ve got an evening of family fun.


Alice? February 14-17 Drama Group VH180 by Brian Holmes Imprint staff The Uni,versity of Waterloo drama production Alice? opened to a full house in the small studio theatre space, HH180 on Wednesday, February 14, This “collet live” work, adapted, from Carroll‘s Ahe in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, by the actors, was directed by drama’s visiting director, Simon Johnston. Johnston and his cast deserve praise, as the final product was energized, humorous, and clever. Most of the appeal of the show is, of course, Carroll‘s thoughtinspirinfl commentary on

without losing something. In Alice? we lose not only most of the Chess game from the second book, but the resolution of the Queen of Heart’s court trial. The production calls attention to the fact that the trial is not over by breaking dramatically for intermission, and not returning to the trial afterward is one of the most nagging things about the show. The other curiosity that recurs is the use of “modernisms“ at inopportune moments. Rap songs, slangs, and slogans jar the mad Victorian setting that the production otherwise well establishes. One scene especially, in which the joust between the white and red knights is juxtaposed with a very modern, realistic brawl, is rather confused. One gets the feeling that a point is being stressed without an actual point being articulated.

fohnston and company created an intriguing stage production that hovers between “theatre” and “dance.“ Many of these staging problems are delightfully solved [the rabbit burrow and the caterpillar are probably the best examples), while other effects seem uninspired [such as the playing cards). Lewis Carroll fans, however, cannot watch the production without frequently wondering how the next scene

Stupid dolt, YOU forgot your sunglasses. Now you’re ready. Driving out of the city, you can see its restless expansion, but there still are parts that are untouched. Pretty suon, there is a queue of automobiles ahead of you, all turning left. I guess you11 have to turn left too. This is where we are going. The parking lot is gravelled but because it’s cold, the moisture from the thaw has hardened the muck into miniature ravines and gullies. In front of what looks like a warehouse is a series of trucks and tents. Southwestern Ontario gypsies sell apples and cider and flowers. There are two doors about a hundred feet apart that let you into the building. If you pick the far door, on your left you11 see a graying Mennonite with stacks of eggs and empty cartons. These are a good buy. Somewhere in the middle, you can’t miss it, are bins and bins of fresh bagels. The pumpernickel ones are really.. . well, you buy some. The smells in this building are friendly.

His father was the British Legation Minister to Abyssinia (now Ethopiaj, and his mother seems to have had a knack for prophetic understatement. “My mother,” says Thesiger early in his autobio“always maintained graphy, that the first words I said were ‘Go yay,’ which meant ‘Go. away.“’ Thesiger has been saying and doing that very thing in a big way for more than half a tentury. His adventures as an exlorer and soldier, in the Pegendary tradition of Sir Richard Burton and T.E. Lawrence, ace recorded in his books Arabian Sands (1959), The Marsh Arabs (1964) and The Last Nomad (1980). These celebrated works are distinguished by a direct and bone-dry style that balances Thesiger’s luxuriantly romantic relish and respect for traditional tribal people’s and desolate places. The Life of My Choice says goodbye to all that and good riddance to the 20th century and its airships, land vehicles and instant communications, which destroyed the silence and threaten a world Thesiger 4aw just in time. j

Passersby would then throw stones at the spot until a cairn arose over the remaining bones. . The traditional simplicity of such an earthly send-off seems to match the very nature of the man. “The most important thing

to remember,” Thesiger says, “is that when I did my journeys’ I did them the only way they could be done, by camel or on foot.” He wrote his booksin the same unhurried fashion, patiently putting. one incident after another, savoring the landscape, the history and the lore. , As well as any travel writer of the 19th and 20th centuries, Thesiger conveys the explorers’ bond of shared solitude. He shows human nature in its crucible, including the elements of savagery and the instinct for, hospitality’ which flour%is.hes best in the most hospitable terrain. The Life of My Choice leaves no doubt that Thesiger had plenty to choose from. What bet-

where, he recalls, “as English boys who had barely heard of cricket we were natural targets.” Classmates branded him a liar when he told them of warriors and lion hunts. Rejected, he withdrew into primal memories of Abyssinia. . Thesiger did not return to his birthplace until 1930. Haile Selassie, a friend of his father’s, invited him to attend his coronation. The feudal pageantry of the occasion has been described with condescending vividness by Evelyn Waugh, then a correspondent for Fleet Street. By contrast, Thesiger notes sadly that during his absence of eleven years “the ageold splendor of Abyssinia” had been fading. The Emperor’s bodyguard wore khaki; the palace secretaries were in tailcoats. Thesiger met the celebrated author of ViIe Bodies and found him “foppish and petulant.”

During WWII he fought Italians in Ethopia; in Libya he took part in raids on German encampments and communications as part of a jeep-mounted SAS guerrilla unit. Thesiger’s greatest adventures came after the war in the vast deserts of southern Arabia, where for five years he traveled with the Bedouin. They receive his highest praise: “I aknew I could not match them in physical endurance, but, with my family background’ Etont Oxford, the Sudan Political Service,. I did perhaps think I s would match them in civilized behaviour.” That they do not make people like Thesiger anymore is obvious. That men like Thesiger were always as scarce as water in the Sahara is gloriously evident in his proud and court!y autobiography.

Brilliant Warrior


by Peter Brown Imprint etaff The playoffs will be no snoozer for the Warriors, if last Friday night’s regular season finale against the fourth-place Western Mustangs is any early indication. Led by the inspired goaltending of Mike Bishop and the stalwart defensive work and timely scoring of fifth-year captain John Goodman, this hockey team stormed back from a third period two-goal deficit to score three times and win. The Warriors finish up with just about the best record in team history, 17-4-l. The team began their playoff quest for the CIAU championship last night when they travelled to Windsor to play thf Lancers, 9-6 first-round winner! over Brock on Tuesday night Games two and, if necessary, three will will be back here at the Columbia Icefield on Sunday at 230 pm and Tuesday at 7:30 pm. The cross-town rival Laurier Golden Hawks will be enjoying home-ice this weekend against the upstart Guelph Gryphons, who toppled third-place Western 5-2 in the quarter-final. Now, back to Friday’s game. Waterloo had already clinched second place, and a loss to Western could only hurt their momentum going into the playoffs. This game didn’t mean anything.

He’s a workaholic on the ice, and he excites the crowd with his play.” Credit must be’ given, though, to the Mustangs, especially goalie Stephen Titus and the entire UWO defence.

denly, Bishop faced a two-onzero, and had no chance. The Mustang glanced at his teammate just inside of the blueline and blasted a slapshot between the all-star’s pads. Needless to say, the sizable Western contingent went wild. The second period began with Western still one man short, &d soon another as they received two minors. UW continued to press nervously, and soon allowed another Western breakaway, thip one brickwalled by Bishop. ’ But Titus was the one with the real workout, as Waterloo started to shake the dust off of their hockey sticks. The frustration was starting to show in the . form of dumb penalties and

below par play. Even sharpshooter Tony Crisp was a tad flustered. While shorthanded, he stole the puck at center ice and broke clear of a defenceman only to shoot it wide left. Later in the period, John Williams missed an open net, and both Goodman and Pat Daly had great chances. In total, UW outshot the ‘Stangs 14-5 in that frame. The score after two was still 1-O. Waterloo continued to heat up in the third, but was repeatedly cooled by the icy-perfect performance of Stephen Titus. Western sensed their fortune and pressed back to the UW end, swarming around the Waterloo net. Mustang Rob Kingshott poked the puck underneath Bishop, who promptly sat on it to stop play. The referee choked on the whistle, though, and Kingshott was able to free the puck and club it into the net. Western fans were ecstatic with their team’s 2-0 lead early in the third. Off-setting penalties meant that each team had four skaters now, and Waterloo knew that the only way past this ironclad backstop was pressure. They stormed the purple zone, Pound passing to Richard, and’Richard to Clark Day, who has only three goals this season. Day tried to maneuver around Western defenceman Chris Penman and couldn’t, so he decided to go through him instead, making a powerful rush into the Titus’ crease. The puck crossed the goal line a split second before Titus, Penman, and Day, and the Continued

Continued from page 19 goal counted. The home crowd awoke with a roar; the deficit was cut in half with over 15 minutes left. That one goal did two things: it removed Titus’s jinx on the Warriors, and it informed Western that they had to start working I because this game was far from over. Both teams pumped up the intensity of their play i&mediately, but it was Waterloo who could smell blood and Titus who could smell his shorts. At 7:20, UW struck again. This time, Jamie Maki scored, assisted by Goodman and Ken Buitenhuis. The game was tied 2-2 and the rafters raged with UW cheering. Minutes later, Waterloo was shorthanded again,‘ and it was Bishop’s turn to star, saving one Iwith his glove, one .with his pads, and a couple off of his lumber. This penalty killed, it was time for history. A rested lohn Goodman vaulted through the door onto the ice to resume even-strength and took a Landry Smith pass at stride at center ice, He motored over the blueline and fired, blowing one between the pads of Titus, and bulging the twin;. It was 11:29; it had taken UW seven minutes to come back with three straight goals. More fisticuffs were to follow, and the remaining eight minutes were made interesting by rarely being even-strength. Both teams had late chances. With five minutes remaining, Crisp took advantage of the spacious accomniodations provided by a three-on-three to elude his co& erage and make the Western goalie play Twister. But the Mustang defenceman was still close enough to force Crisp wide. This is just one highlight of the game’s end-to-end finish.

for 6th at 6lJAA’s

’ the week

the weekend was Jason Krupp, who set the tone for the Warriors. Krupp had been expected to swim a fast time, but 1:56.89 in the 200 m free was exceptional, his eighth place finish a bonus, This was how Waterloo started toward a sixth-place finish in the team standings, just twelve points out of fourth. Krupp continued his success by placing eighth in the 100 m fly, but his best race was the 200 m fly, where he finished fifth. His time, ikO9.72, was just two one-hundredths of a second off the team record.

Swimming by Jeff Slater Imprint staff Laurentian University hosted the OUAA swim championships this past weekend. Assembled at the Olympic Gold pool, home to double-gold medallis t Alex Baumann, were 200 of the finest male university swimmers the province had to offer. Waterloo entered a 16-member cant ingent, who figured to fight four other teams to place just behind perennial powers Toronto, McMas ter and Western. Coach John Oesch said “I am ecstatic at (Waterloo’s) results,” said coach John Oesch. “Everyone performed personal best times and the dedication throughout the season showed, especially in the performances of Brad Oesch and Greg Pye.” Toronto came away with their 30th consecutive OUAA title, but the excitement of really fast swimming was supplied by one swimmer from Macand another from Laurentian. Stephen Merker was named swimmer of the meet for his triple gold medal performance, which included an OUAA record swim of 15:36 minutes in the 1500 metre freestyle. Darcy Wallingford won both breaststroke races and erased his existing provincial standard in the 100 m with a time of 1~13.14 min. Waterloo’s first swimmer of

“everyone performed personal best times and the dedication throughout the season showed.” - Coach John Oesch Greg Pye’s co-op placement in Sudbury worked to his advantage in the~l5m m free. Having trained with Laurentian team for the past six weeks, Pye was able to stay with one of his training partners throughout the gruelling race and ultimately place sixth by defeating the Voyageur. The tables were turned in the 400 m free however. Pye finished tenth with his usual gutsy swim. He gained a second tenth-place finish in the 200 m fly to complete a rather demanding schedule of events. Dave Dineen and Kevin McDonald, Waterloo’s backstroke specialists, have seen remarkably similar seasons come to similar fruition. Both are team clowns

and cheerleaders, and both had to train during their fall work terms to enable them to swim as quickly as they did. Dineen and McDonald placed 12th and 13th in the 200 m back and returned the next day to place 15th and 14th in the 100 m. Both also posted spectacular relay swims. Brad Oesch placed 12th in both the 200 m and 400 m individual medley races. Graduating senior Steve Head fought off a sudden injury to place 15th in the 100 m flyand supply some leadership to the young Warriorquad. Jeff Budau drove himself to a 15th place finish in the 400 .m IM. Budau was able to break the five minute barrier with a confident effort. The majority of Waterloo’s points were not scored in individual events but in the relays. The 800 m free relay was Waterloo’s strongest. The teams placed seventh and ninth respectively. Oesch, Krupp, Dineen and Pye combined for Waterloo’s first sub-eight swim in five years. The B-team of Head, Mark Goodwin, Jeff Budau and James Sieffert won their closely contested heat to consolidate their position. The 200 m-medley relay of McDonald, Chris Cupidio, Head and Scott Whyte set Waterloo’s only team record of the meet with a 1:52.66 clocking. They placed 10th while the B-team of Mike Hoehn, Graham Stringer, Goodwin and Brian Rounhlev ed-ged into the points at 16th place. v----d
