The decade of doirig the by Sandy Atwal Imprintstaff On September 29-30,78 heads of State will meet in New York at the United Nations to hold an unprecedented World Summit for Children. This is the first time in history that world leaders from around the globe - the largest meeting of world leaders in history have met for a single common purpose - to put children on top of the agenda for the 1990s. It is only now, at the turn of the century, that the majority of the world is beginning to realize the implications for future generations if we continue to use the earth in the careless manner we have adopted for centuries. However the potential benefactors of that future, the children of the earth, are in a dire situation as it stands. Over 40 000 children under the age of five die every day in the developing countries from six preventable diseases. No catastrophe in human history has ever claimed the lives of 280 000 children a week-but that is what is happening and will continue to happen unless the world decides to take action. This Summit was initiated by six countries in November of 1989 - the Presidents of Egypt, Mali, Mexico and the Prime Ministers of Pakistan, Sweden, and the chairman of the Summit - Prime Minister Mulroirey, These six leaders asked the United Nations for assistance in facilitating their action, and UNICEF Ml1 be supplying the secretariat to organize thk meeting. This movement to bring to the world’s attention the importance of saving our children is not restricted to a meeting of dignitaries in New York. On September 23, Kitchener will hold one of 1600 Candlelight Vigils around the world in support of the summit and in support of children around the globe. The Vigil will be held at the Centre in the Square from 7:00 to 8:3O p.m. In recognition of the Summit, a concert will be given by local choirs - The Schneider Male Voice Choir, The Regional Male Voice Choir and Mr. Alfred Kuntz. Following the performances, there will be a candlelight vigil ceremony outside the Centre in the Square. Seats are being sponsored at $10.00 each by organizations such as the Kitchener Rotary Club, and given away to families who could not ordinarily afford to attend. Seats not sponsored prior to the performance will go on sale at the Centre’s box office on Friday Sept. 14. The goal of the Vigils and the Summit is not
just to awaken people to the plight of children for one day, but to establish a permanent structure through organizations such as UNICEF that will continue to aid children until certain established goals have been met.
Despite the actions of Mulroney at home, his role as chairman of theJargest Summit of world leaders ever held, ensures Canada’s place as a leader in supporting the rights of children internationally. Although Canadians tend to think of themselves as minor players

in comparison to the worId’s superpowers, this view is unjustified. Accord& io John Hotson, professor of economitis at &e University of Waterloo, the Canadian chapter of UNICEF collects more monev than anv other country in the world. This is r&t per ca&.a, but asagross amount. In order to maintain our p&&n as human rights supporters abroad, support must be shown for this Summit as well. 150 million children will die by the end of the 90s at preent rates. Technological improvements are expected to save 25 million of those lives, but it is hoped that the impetus provided by the Summit will save another SO million. Not only wil1 these children live, but the Summit could ensure that they will survive to adulthood with good health and an education. At thq same time, reducing the number of infant deaths will also decrease the population growth in developing countries since with the increase in the number of children that survive, there is a decrease in the birth rate. However the children in the third world, although lacking the most in terms of basic requirem&s of food and shelter, and opportunties f&he future, are not the only focus of the Summit. Urban children who drop out of high school, or are subjectedto abuse, or are illiterate, are ako an integral part of the meet> . ing.

billion a year until the end of the decade. This is an easily recognizable goal when considering that in one day, the world spends $2.5 billion on arms, or that in one year American advertising companies spend $2.5 billion to advertise cigarettes, or that in one month the Soviet peo$e spend that amount on Vodka. It is only a matter of priorities that prevents this goal from being reached. There
is no more perfect opportunity for governments away from military domination and global warfare to the needs of our future. In a post-cold war era it is possible for the world to move away from the disruptive forces of political ideology and toward the principle of giving children the attention that they need for their survival. UNICEF wants the 1990s to be the Decade of Doing the Obvious. The cost of doing so will be only a fraction of a countries’ military budget. But th& fraction will go a long way to ensure the survival of millions of children into the next century. shifting

Council back in session . by Dave Thomson Imprint staff
The Federation of Students held their first Students’Council Meeting of the Fall term last Sunday, September 15 in the new Coatcheck/ Meeting Room at Fed Hall. During the three hour meeting, many issues of interest were brought up including deferring the Student Life building referendum, endorsement of the abolition of the Smoking Room in the Campus Centre, and plans to renovate Fed Hall so it will generate revenue. Vice-President (Operations and Finance} Tess Sliwinski reported that Fed Hall has lost around $100,000 for the fiscal year ending in April 1990. She attributed this for the most part as a consequence of unnecessary labour costs. Ideas in the working to bring more busi-
ness to Fed Hall are centred around converting the upper section of Fed to a sports lounge/nightclub type of area. This includes the possible purchase of two billiard tables, viQeo games, televisions, and moving the dartboards to a more accessible place upstairs. Essentially, an atmosphere more like the Bombshelter’s will be created upstairs in Fed Hall. The issue of “price equity” between the Bombshelter and Fed HaII concerning specials was also brought up, and Ms. Sliwinski expressed hope that a solution could be found during a meeting she will be having shortly with the Managers of the two bars. As an example, she pointed out that Fed Hall charges $3.25 for a “tall boy” while the Bombshelter charges only $250. Two items on the agenda will be of interest to those students who choose to smoke. Firstly, there was a motion that the Students’ Council endorse a proposal by Ann Simpson (Manager of the Campus Centre) to abolish the Smoking Room in the Campus Centre and convert it to another meeting room for
clubs on campus. The majority of voting members were non-smokers and argued that more space for meetings was needed, and that priority should be given to clubs, since the campus centre was originally designed as a general meeting place for students. The two people in the room who were smokers argued that the Smoking room was the only place on campus you could go to smoke without feeling obligated to buy something, that they never had any problem booking meeting rooms, and that abolishing the smoking room would only redirect smokers to the Wild Duck cafeteria or the Bombshelter, adding substantially to the amount of cigarette smoke in thae establishmentsDue in part to the vast majority of voting members being non-smokers, the Council approved the motion. Secondly there was a motion to discontinue the selling of cigarettes at Federationoperated services (the Bombshelter, Campus Shop, and Fed Hall). This motion was soundly defeated
In a discussion about the proposed Student Life Building, President of the Federation of Students John Vellinga motioned that the referendum be deferred from the planned dates in October to November 21 and 22 so that it wouldn’t happen in the middle of midterm exams. This motion was also passed. VPOF Tess Sliwinski stated that the proposed compulsory fees to be added to students’ fee statements to pay for the project (estimated to cost around $11 million) would start off at 20 dollars per term in 1991, increase to 30 dollars/term in 1992, and then to 40 dollars/term in 1993. The 40 dollar fee would be indexed every year thereafter until the complex is paid for. Due to logistical problems with the current computer set-up in Needles Hall, Sliwinski said that it will not be possible to exclude senior students from paying the fee, even though it is unlikely that the building would be available for their use before they graduate. The next Students’ Council meeting wilI be heti on September 3Q1990 at 490 pm in the Fed Hall C,mtcheck/Meeting room.

One condition that has already been met is that the University guarantee in writing that their funding policy %ll never be adversely adjusted in response to the ASEC or any other funds generated by the Endowment.” Other conditions are that: the fee is “the fee will be fully refundable;
students pay the fee during the next ten years (75 percent of engineering students pay the same amount toward a similar fund for their faculty) the principal amount in the fund would be well over a million dollars and would generate $91230 in interest for the ASEC committee to spend. The table is based on two assumptions: that the fees will increase 5 percent/year to cover inflation and that interest rates will be 10 percent.

Karen Wasslen and Marc Chiang of the ASA have visited classes near the end of last term and the beginning of this term attempting to inform the eleven or twelve hundred accounting students of the benefits and rationale for the fee. A referendum will be held on September 26 and 27 of this year to determine whether the proposal will be implemented. A vote in favotir will be considered to be 50 percent plus one (a simple majority). Included
100% of the ASEC proceeds will be put in an Endowment Fund by the year 2000; and that the undergraduate students will control the money by requiring a students’council to ratify any funding decisions. If approved, only ten percent of ASEC revenue will be placed in the endowment fund and the other 90 percent will be used to help meet needs in accounting courses. Every year thereafter an additional ten percentage points more will be pIaced in the endowment fund until all ASEC revenue is placed in the endowment fund and the interest generated by the principal would be used to fund the accounting courses.

term goals. This will be achieved by allowing the principal amount t0 grow indefinitely and use only monies generated by the interest on the principal amount. As well, the University’s professional money manager will manage the fund at no extra cost. The ASEC will be administered by a Steering COmmittee and a Board of Directors. The former will decide where the funds should be allocated and consists of a Director, Associate Director, four students from the Arts faculty (accounting), four students from the Mathematics faculty (accounting), three students from the Professional Accredited Stream, (PAS), the Associate Director of the School of Accountancy, one recent graduate (under three years), and one position open to any Alumni. Nearly all of these positions will be filled by students. The Board of Directors will be repponsible for administration, legal, mdding and constitutional matters. It will consist of a Director and an Associate Dirfzctor (both from the Steering Committee), four student representatives that are also on the Steering Committee, the ASA President, Director of the School of Accounting Accountancy, and Alwnni Executive, and a recent alumni (under three years). It is important to note that the two aforementioned governing bodies of ASEC are studentdominated and therefore the administration of the funds will ideally represent student interests. There is also a possibility of setting UP ASEC as a charitable corporation that would solicit donations from Alumni and various accounting firms which would be tax-deductible. As well, any students who make the Wluntary contribution will receive an income tax credit If the ASEC is approved, the 75 dd.h fee would, be placed on the fee statements of accounting students for the term commencing in January 1991.

Accounting studenk should not be forced to pay more to offer required courses such as ACCQOl and ACC453. The proposal indicates that 90 per cent of the funds will be spent in the first year, which turns the ASEC into a short-term bandaid solution to the underfunding crisis. However, the $53,000 that is avaihble to spend in the first year is not enough to put on even one additional-course! On September 26 & 27, vote no to the ASEC - it isn’t the solution we need!

Oh the evils of smoking
Canada pilots have been charged with smoking. Apparently the RCMP conducted an investigation after a fellow worker exposed what these pilots were doing in the cockpits, other than flying a plane. You see, Canadian law prohibits smoking in the workplace unless there is a designated smoking area, and there are none designated on domestic flights. Separating smoking and nonsmoking passengers from each other is an intelligent move for health reasons, as well as being plain common sense. But depriving the people who are in control of the aircraft of a Zegul substance their body is used to is somewhat irrational. I would much rather risk any health affects fri5m faint odours of a cigarette than see the pilots having a nicotine fit when they’re coming in for a landing. Call me insane. I’m fed up with the anti-smoking movement, and not solely because of the fact that I smoke. I respect the health interests of others I’m not ignorant of the fact that there are people who are really bothered physically and mentally by cigarette smoke. The problem I have with this particular movement is the fact that smokers have been singled out as a group of undesireables due to the well-known health risks associated with smok@g. It is appalling that the Canadian govern&nt has cracked down on smokers while applying band-aid approaches - if any - to other drug problems such as caffeine, alcohol, and “hard drug” addictions. Cigarette smoking has become restricted enough that the only person it hurts - in most cases - is the smoker
themselves. Meanwhile, drinking and driving is still very much a serio& problem, especially
in the university
sometimes results in immediate death for one or more people. And who knows how many
people are lucky enough to not get caught or have an accident? This is an activity that has definable immediate effects and, if you consider the relative risk asswment, penalties that are not sufficient. Aside from the drinking and driving problem, alcohol consumption also causes bar fights, gun fights, and a whole host of other problems when otherwise “normal” people are impaired. In just the last month or so, two Bombshelter staff were assaulted when a few patrons had too much to drink. Why do we take the problems of alcohol so lightly? Because alcohol is still socially acceptable by the (moral) majority, while tobacco has become taboo. Evidence of this can be seen if one looks at the history of advertising of these products. The first stage of banning tobacco advertising in Canada had something to do with the urGrness of tobacco companies associating cigarette smoking with healthy activities such as skiing or surfing. In the meantime, the large brewing companies
produce commercials en masse that objectify women by associating beer with pictures of beautiful women. Non-smokers definitely have their right not to be subjected to cigarette smoke, which many perceive as being deadly. Some people in bars wU leap out of the way to avoid a plume of blue smoke coming tfieir direction. Smokers also have a right to be treated rationally. In all probability these New Puritans breath polluted air, drink polluted water, eat food pumped fuIl of chemicals, and so on, just like the rest of us. Again, it all comes down to how you assess the risk Smokers are the scapegoats for those moral authorities who take pleasure in imposing their beliefs on others. It’s a very mixed up country when the government bans the advertising of a Ipgal product that harms ody
the user, f&r the most part - but won’t stop corporations from polluting everyone’s environment. Just one more fact to refute the “facts”. Over sixty (60) percent of Japanese men smoke.

Becoming vulnerable to the process of change (of week) is vital to Christian expression, and is part of’the symbol of Baptism, the Christ& initiatory rite. Change, however, is not arbitrary or self serving - it conforms one to the view of God, tc the kind of viewpoint God has. Thus the process of change must include input from God (just as a mentor is required from whom the apprentice may learn). This input is both realized and represented by the endowment of the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Jaus told his early disciples, ‘? will pray the
E$ther,andhe&allgiveyouanotherComforter ‘~~w~whenhe...iscome,hewill~de you into all truth: . . . for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you/ (John 14:16-17; l&13-14.) The Holy Spirit, or Ghost, is a revealer of truth, an instrument for learning the will of the Divine; and if it is true that ‘Icnowledge is power/ then he also s-es the @ace by which we can paform according to God% will. This re resents the change o‘iheart-the cleansing 0 rpthe inner vessel as one ancient prophetput it - which necessady precedes a sincere change of attitude and behaviour. In the Hindu Geera, Prince Arjuna ’ experiences a change of heart when the Lord :
enables him to perceive
according to the viewpoint of God. The first chapter is entitled, “the Despmdency of Arjuna,” in which he despairs over the results of war, the bldshed amongst families, friends, and teachers. By the power of Lord Shri Krishna, Arjuna is moved into the midst of the battlefield, as he requests. There he sees all the members of the armies at
war, his heart is broken, and he weeps for them. This scene alone is moving, and rep resenti the general human viewpoint when one is touched by pity, love and sympathy. Krishna goes on, however, to give the Prince a further insight into the eternal nature of thin= “rhe wise,” he tells him, “grieve neither for the dead nor for the living. ‘There never was a time. when I was not, nor thou, nor these princes + . .; there never will be a time when we shall cease to be.” (trans. Shri Purohit Swami, bndon: 1935, 1973.) Having eternity revealed to him, being able to see from the perspective of God, Arjuna is consoled, is capable of greater faith, and in life of greater action because his soul, his heart, confidence and understanding have been enlarged. First becoming vulnerable to God’s power? and then receiving it and proceeding to act upon it, are essential to the initiation of a Christian life. Humility, insight, and action alone are vital to almost any definition of a successful

Forum. Run-of-the-mill To the editor, In last Friday’s edition of Imprint, our names and opinions appeared in the article “Where do we draw the line?” We would like to make it clear that the opinions expressed in the interview were our own personal opinions and do not represent the op&Gons of the Federation of Students. Further, the presence of our opinions does not necessarily condone the manner in which the issue was presented. When interviewed, we were not aware of the fact that the photographs related to the article would be reproduced in hnprint. We were also unclear on whether or not our names would appear with our opinions. Neither of us were elected to formulate opinions on pornography and censorship on behalf of students and we have no intention of bringing the Federation into the inevitable controversy that will follow Friday’s article. We do however feel the responsibility to participate in the education of students with regard to important issues such as pornography and censorship so that they may formulate their own opinions. It was clearly the intention of thi article to promote discussion on the topic of pornography and censorship. This is a noble goal and the issue should be addressed on University Campuses. The issue of pornography and censorship has been hidden away as a result of society’s fear of confronting controversial problems. a All arguments for and against censorship put aside, Imprint is a widely read and readily available publication with no control over distribution. As such, the presence of photos like those shown last Friday represents a dangerous risk Another unfortunate result of this article is the reaction that was provoked. While hprint attempted to caution people to react rationally, this debate is rife with emotion and deeply entrenched opinion. Instead of rationaI dialogue, there were knee-jerk reactions. On one hand, people are experiencing blind rage at the photos while ignoring the article and its purpose and content. On the other hand, some have simply sensationalized the photos as run-of-the-mill porno pictures, also ignoring the article. This is not what hprint wanted as a reaction. We hope that as the debate unfolds, people keep an open mind. If the trenches are not dug too deeply, on both sides, dialogue can still take place.

A few cummencs: (1) 7Xe authur of rhe fmture uriicle claims, and other respondents have cunfirm& thut the purpose uf the inter-v&s war made clear. (2) It is un&muud in democracies that while we separate the u@ce@m its hulder.. the holder’s opinions do in sume way mold the agenda uf the uflce. (3) Imprint did nut dishibute the last issue to our usual o$-campus luc~tiuns, in acknowledgement of the nature uf
righteous conservative attitudes.‘~I find that as a woman 1 cannot disagree more strongly with my own self-proclaimed representatives at the Women’s Centre and Women’s Issues Board: If either Ms. Speers or Ms. Herold think they represent my concerns they are sadly mistaken. They have more in common with the repressive ranks of fundamental Christianity than with Women’s liberation. As someone who considers herself intellectual and appreciative of openness in sexual matters I can only find censorship, a patriarchal tool of bondage, intolerable. Education is the only real way to solve the problems attributed to pornography and the sex trade. If either Ms. Speers or Ms. Herold were up-to-date with the rhetoric and feminist dialogue of thrlr decade, instead of being stuck in some sixties knee-jerk reactionary fear, they would s_ee my point. I find it interesting to note th&t the studentt leaders, those who are labelled “radicals” ini other countries, have much more conserva-tive views than the members of the faculty’ or administration consulted. Perhaps the geritol got sent out to the wrong offices. If Imprintcontinues in this vein, I know I will enjoy my next two years here.
sick countering ea& stab at females with an equally crass remark about males. Better yet, why not eliminatealtogether these comments that deliberately put down a particular group?
This is not to be construed as a criticism of the type of humour throughout the handbook Most of the humour is funny, but when that humour is continuously attacking one group in a society, it ceases to be so amusingApart from the Bastard of the Week Quotes, the selections are generally negative, and tend to reflect anti-establishment sentiments. Few would find thoughts such as “Deceive and attack others for your own selfish gain, regardless of the pa’in or loss inflicted upon them fl hilarious. Editors, perhaps you would do better to include more positive and inspiring quotations. The Student Handbook is otherwise a high-quality publication, and you have reason to be proud of your hard work. Yet it is important to remember that many students read the handbook, and will refer to it several times throughout the academic year. When one considers how hard we have fought to counter negative and unfounded biases toward various groups by increasing enlightenment through education, why, in this decade, are we regressing to standards that reflect a narrow-minded and mediocre SOCktJl?

pages. I am referring to those selections that are preceded by “Arrogant (Nation&y) Bastard of the Week Quote.” Quotations such as’Thou goest to women? Do not forget thy whip!” and “A man of straw is worth more than a woman of gold” are, in 1990, degrading to females. I do not wish to dispute the greatness of historical figures such as Nietzsche, Aristotle, and Terence. I acknowledge that these opinions w& widely accepted in their day; women were considered to have a lesser value than their male count&parts. Thus, the Arrogant Urnbrian Bastard of the Week Quote’May my enemies love women” was valid and acceptable at one time, but not in the latter part of the twentieth century. A half-hearted attempt to compensate for these demeaning quotations has been made: the phrase “Arrogant . . . Bastard” is placed before each insulting statement. hogant?

Circles-a mixed gender bar Totheeditor,
The article about Circles in the September 14 issue of Imprint has created some unfortunate confusion about the Club’s attitudes towards lesbian clientele. The owner, Tom Reidel, met with representatives of GLTDW and made it emphatically clear that Circles caters not only to gay men but lesbians as well. In support of this it should be noted that five of the staff at Circles a;e f&male. Since its start, Circles has been a mixed gender bar and it would be most unfortunate if members of the lesbian community were to feel alienated by the unfortunate choice of quotes in the Imprint article.

Here, Here!! Finally an article ori pornography that really deals with the issue by having the guts to print so-called “objectionable” pictures. I have seen many articles printed about pornography printed in other publications but none had any questionable material without the accompanying black censor dots. I have always found it interesting how many people object to material they have never seen. Thank you Imprint for treating me like an aduIt. As a new student to Waterloo, I was afraid that I would find the same, if not worse, conservative attitudes that seem to be permeating campuses today. The answers procured by Mr. Hagey from the various student leaders have revealed their, and I quote ‘self-

These groups also struggle to change society’s misconceptions and attitutdes about them. Just as it wduld have been inappropriate to single out these groups, it was,inappropriate to single out women. I feel it was wrong to include the quotes in the handbook. The world is full of other more inspiring quotes which could have been cited and appreciated in the handbook.

To the editor, The 19904991 Student Handbook, commonly used by most Waterloo students, was a disappointment this year to many students both men and women. Many of the quotations at the bottom of the page I are insulting to women and our intelligence. I can respect that these quoted were taken from prominent
historical figures, but that does not excuse their arrogance or warrant their repetition in the handbook. Heading each quote with an “Arrogant () of ths Week Quote” also faiIs to excuse the remark and apologize to women. Page 123 quotes Aristotle saying “Also, as regards male and female, the former is

Work is for Saps! We are so close to the world of work that we can’t see what it does to us. We have to rely on outside observeis from other times or other cultures to appreciate the extremity and the pathology of our present position. There was a time in our own p&st yhen the “work ethic” would have been inmmprehensible, and perhaps Weber was on to something when he tied its appearance to religion, Calvanism, which ifit emerged today instead of four centuries ago would immediately be labeled a cult. We have only to draw upon the wisdom of antiquity to put work in perspective. The ancienk saw w&k for what it’is, &d their view prevailed until overthrown by industrialism. Let’s pretend for a moient that work doesn’t turn people into stultified submissives. Let’s pretend, in defiance of any plausible psychology and the ideology of its boosters, that it has no effect on the formation of character. And let’s pretend that work isn’t as boring and tiring and humiliating as we all know it really is. Even then, work would srill make a mockery of all humanistic and democratic aspirations, just Because it takes up so much of our time. Socrates said that manual Iabourers make bad friends and bad citizens because they have no time to fulfill the responsibilitiesof friendship and citizenship. He was right. Because of work, no matter what we do wekeep looking at our watches. The only thing%ee”aboutso4alleclfreetimeisthatit doesn’t cost the boss anvthine. Free time is mostly devoted to g&g reidy for work, going to work, returning from work, and kco~ering from workFree time is a euphemism for the peculiar way labour as a Eactor of production not only transportz,‘itself at its own expense to and from the work place but assumes primary responsibihty fbr its own maintenance and repair. Coal and steel don’t do that. Lathes and typewriters don’t do that. But workers do. No wonder Edward G. Robinson in one of h& gangster movies exclaimed “Work is for saps!”
Even if you aren’t kiIled or crippled while actually working you very well might be while going to work, coming from pork, looking for work, or trying to forget about work The vast mai+ of@of the automobile are either dwiof the& yprtc-obligatory activities or * @j #ofi of &hose who do them. To this aug&+ed body count must be added the victims of auto-industrial pollution and work induced alcoholism and drug addiction Both cancer and heart disease are modern afflictions normally traceable, directly or indirectly, to work. - Work, then,~institutionalizes homicide as a way of life. People think the Cambodians were crazy for etierminating themselves, but are we any different? The Pol Pot regime at least had a vision, however blurred; of an egalitarian society. We kill people in the sixfigure range (at least) in order to sell Big Mats and Cadillacs to the sutivors. Our forty or fifty thousand annual highway fatalities are victims, not martyrs. They died for nothing or rather, they died for work. But work is nothing to die for. Only one more to go, be seeing you.
offended try this little home exercise: Substitute any oppressed group of your choice for female and white male for male and reread &is quote: “As regards male and female, the former is superior, the latter is inferior.” Get it?
of straw is worth more that a woman of gold” (John Florio): “Also as regards male and female, the former is superior, the latter is inferior...” (Arsitotle) And here’s and oldie but a goodie - ‘Thou goest to w&an?

Now, in order to set the situation up as accurately as possible, we must mention that there were indeed disclaimers placed in front of every sexist comment - ie. Arrogant Greek, Roman, Urnbrian, German bastard of the week quote. For this. we say oh, thank-you great omniscient and s&&ive handbo& editors.
A plea for help
We have only one question. Why is it considered to be hip and cool and terribly witty to print remarks degrading women, but none of the above when dealing with comments degrading other social groups which have been institutionally oppressed. For instance, how would a racist remark with an arrogant Ku Klux Klan disclaimer have gone over? How hysterical would it have been to include an anti-Semitic remark pulled from Shakespeare’s ‘IMerchant of Venice” with arrogant English bastard of the week quote printed above it?
To the editor,
On June 191990 Elizabeth Bain, a student at Scarborough College of the University of Toronto, disappeared while on the Sacrborough campus. I received a letter from her parents asking for help in locating Elizabeth. There are numerous ways of help ing, and I am asking any student who is interested in the issue to please come up to the Fed office, CC room 235, as scxm as possible. I’d like to end this letter with a quote from her parents: “We hope that given today’s climate of rising incidents of violence tow& alI sectors of society, our educational system may hold a ~~r~~nsibilityandbeinaprivileged position to educate the generation of tomorrow to be street wise’, i.e. the art of perceiving danger, exercising caution and creative channelling of energy toward constructive methods to deal with this malaise. Perhaps the enigmatic community spirit sparked by the dedication and concern of those participating in these searches might be one such worthy channel, one which tomorrow could serve any community to face yet another personal crisis, in their fold, with compassion.”
We have spent hours agonizing over this enigma, smoking sometimes five cigarettes at a time while imploring the great oracle to glean the truth from vulture droppings and lo and behold, not only did we manage to create this incredible run-on sentence, we also &me up with an answer. Racist remarks are viewed with such abhorrence and disgust that even a sarcastic disclaimer would not justify its inclusion in a publica~on. Sexism is completely different. First, it is not nearly as recognizable. Second, even if it is noticed, sexism does not seem to provoke nearly the amount of outrage that racism does. We know that this letter might be discounted as the rantings and ravings of date-less wonders. However, if it is still next-toimpossible to understand why we are so

UW unionized staff set to strike A “no board” report on stalled contract talks between U-W and unionized staff is expected this week, clearing the way for mediation to avert a strike. The provincial labour ministry’s report is expected to tell UW and Canadian Union of Public Employees local 793 that “no board of conciliation” will be appointed in the CiiSpUk.
What that means &hat the union can legally go on strike, and the university can legally lock out union members, 16 days from the date of the mini&y’s report. In the mea&e, mediation efforts to head off a walkout or lockout are
A meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 1, with labour mediator Jim Leonard, who presided over an earlier conciliation meeting with the negotiating teams. ‘That will probably be close to the deadline, so both sides will Q to resolve the issues that are outstanding” said Mark Charboneau, national CUF’E representative. “It places the obligation on both to try to reach an agreement.”
Missionary to visit UW
by Mark Vanderkam hprint staff
Joshua Daniel will speak at UW on
21. Dank1 travels around
the world teaching people what it means to live with a Christian conscience in a world that adheres to predominantly secular values. Daniel fights against the idea that people must be selfish if they want to survive in a brutal dog-eatdog society. He claims that when people devote their lives to serving God and their fellow human beings, a real change takes place in their lives. Instead of living for only self-centered ends, people be@ to make a difference in the lives of the people around them; they also find purpose and meaning for their own lives. Because of his forty-five years in missionary work, Daniel should know from experience whether or not it is really possible to live by the high ideals of love and service that were taught by Jesus Christ. He has worked with Christians in dozens of countries and has led the building
up of a missionary
Laymen’s Evangelical Fellowship International, which is committed to carrying out the indructions that Christ gave to His disciples. This Fellowship has established hundreds of mission centres in Asia and Europe and many medical and dental “Gospel” clinics for the poor throughout India. Daniel travels over one hundred thousand miles per year ministering at these Fellowship centres as well as preaching in many evangelistic services. He also speaks at Christian conferences such as the Keswick Conventions and at churches of many
(Anglican, Methodist, Lutheran, and Baptist, to name a few). Despite his hectic schedule, he also finds time for a weekly radio broadcast that is aired across many countries as well as for extensive writing and editing work. Daniel will speak on Friday in CC 135 at 7:15 pm.
Last Wednesday, 257 members of local 793 voted unanimously in favour of a motion that could lead to a strike to back their contract propm&kThey have authorized t)re union to take strike action - if necessary,” Charboneau said He said the main issues are wages

The Censorship Forum, sponsored by the Federation of Students, filled the Campus Centre’s Great Hall on Wednesday night (Sept. 18). The forum began with a screening of Nil a Luve Story,a pro-censorship documentary on pornography and some of the attitudes PomwaPhY generates. Guest speaker Jon Hagey, Imprint’s current Features Editor, opened the forum with a rant parodying the position of the censor. “No, we must ban all filth and cleanse our land before the g&t retribution sweeps down upon our heads and bums us forever in the sulfureous fires of Hell.” Hagey spoke about the danger of such thought, and questioned the motives of the censor. He asked the audience to “abandon emotions and pursue the matter of pornography unfettered by censorship.” He concluded with the statbnient that there shouldbe no censorship, and opened the floor to debate. An issue of contention was the issue of child pornography; Hagey stated that the issue was not one which fell under the ausImprint’s J.

relationship between pornography and sexual assault, rape and violence against women. Other members of the audience countered this argument with a case which was based upon a presumption that pornography, rape and sexual assault are all symptoms of the same so&J dysfunction.
Audience participation was resumed after Fogel had spoken, with many audience members speaking out with force and passion. Hagey’s position of absolute anti-censorship was interpreted by many as an ‘acceptance of pornography, despite Hagey’s protestations to the contrary.
English professor Stan Fogel, the second guest speaker, discussed the way in which society “tends to divide art from pornography in quite arbitrary means.” He further commented on the fact the the film previously viewed, Not A Love Story a fiIm about pornography, tried to establish a puritanical definition of love as opposed to a broader gne which dealt with the physical aspects as well. Fogel, while touching upon many bases, introduced a political element into the debate - one which was not subsequently picked up by the audience. He contended that the differentiation between erotica and pornography, a common theme of censorship, was one of pure political expediency. He stated that the line of differentiation was one which had changed from political era to era and must therefore be suspect. He also went on to quote from various feminist anti-censorship groups and journals. The general theme of these opinions was that feminists must actively pursue a new and egalitian detition of erotica. Further, Fogel thought it dangerous that feminists ally themselves with religious groups on the issue of censorship, when the agendas of these groups are so generally anti-feminist. One interesting sidebar was his reference to cartoonist Linda Barry (Ernie Pwk’s Cumeek), who claimed that women were socialized to place too much value in romantic notions of love. He claimed that censorship and criminalization of the sex trade constituted yet another attack on the mz@nalized
What became clear from all the comments was the incredible diversity of opinion on the subject and the emotion with which the views are held. The censorship forum provided an invaluable opportunity for open discussion and exchange of ideas. Pornography and censorship are issues of great importance as we strive toward a more

The school of Optometry started in 1968 on the main University. of Waterloo campus, It, then became situatedinthepresen~buil~north of the campus, in 1974. The clinic, which has always been a part of the schod, at one time was situated in the old post office in Kitchener. Before the school was established it was part of the College of Optometry in Toronto. The University of Waterloo is one of two schools in Canada with a school of Optometry. The other school, University of Montreal, is instructed only in the French language. The school here in Waterloo has 28 faculty. They vary in backgrounds from optometrists, biochemists, physicists, etc. The school was found+ here at UW for various reasons. Schools such as U of T, Western, Gd Ma&laster already have professional schools, therefore another one would be difficult to fund. University politics, no doubt, would not maintain both professional institutions. Also, Waterloo had a good reputation even when it began therefore it was a great choice for further growth in a respectable atmosphere. Out of over 400 applicants the University of Waterloo admits 60 students *with both academic and non-academic profiles taken into account. The admissions at the Universie of Montreal is also immensely competitive taking 40 students a year based on marks alone, with preference lo Quebec residents. At the school here in Waterloo, for those extraordinary first year students, one or two of them will get in after completing only one year in some sort of
general science program. In the p&t year the academic average for offers sent out to students was in the mideighties. Dr. M. Spafford, the Admissions Officer for Optometry, vs “Generally, when one gets into the Optometry program we assume a certain background of science. Still, there is an assumption of a higher level of knowledge.” In regard to admissions, Dr. Spafford goes on to say,‘we want everything and we can have it. We want someone who academically can handle the program (and) has strong interpersonal skills.. However, I stress, marks are hefinitely not everything.” This past year the Optometry Admissions Test (OAT) has become a requirement of admissions criteria. The test is given by an American Corporation. It is written in mid-October and early February. Percentiles ranging from 200 to 400 are given (ZOO being the lowest mark) with impressive applicants receiving 350 and above. The test gives the faculty a good comparison with American Universities and fairer evaluations of students in different disciplines. -
There are eight separate Components that make vp the fi.naI criteria for admission evaIuation. In order for an application to be considered comblete, these requirements must%e met, and then the competition begins. The overseem of the admissions at the school is a committee made up mainly of faculty. The first component is the academic mark &ieved during the previous years of post-secondary studies. This is in the form of a transcript. Am the overall average in the courses taken is important, but as you will see it is thoroughly substantiated by other criteria. The second component is the Ontario Admissions Test (OAT) which is written and the results given to the school for consideration. The third component takes the form of a personal interview with a member of the admissions committee. This is where the student can make a great impact on those that will beadmitting them. It is one of the best forms of non-academic evaluation that is part of the admissions criteria.

The &&h and fifth components are an autobiographical sketch accompaniti by a written essayThese give more of a depth in a nonacademic way as well as examine the applicant’s command of the English language. The fmal three components consist of different types of references. A character reference, an academic reference, and an optometric reference. The optometric reference is required so as to force the applicant to become associated with all optometrist. This makes sure that they feel good about their decision to become an optometrist. It is realized that although a career guide is helpful, it does not provide the necessary elements for a true picture of the profession. The obvious question arises as to why a person would ever want to submit themselves to this admis&on procedure anyway. The answer lies in many areas of the profession. optometry is a profession that deals with the he&h sciences is the main reason students pursue optometry. The difference it provides from a physician’s career is another carrot for the program. The program i&elf is quite intense in nature and lasts for four years, not to forget that this is after previous studies. The first year is where many students of various backgrounds are brought into a didactic situation (lab/ lecture) to learn introductory optometry. The second year is where clinical studies begin. These courses teach the various optometric tech& ques in use, why they are used, and what the results of their evaluations mean In the laboratories,< the students practice these techniques or! each other. There is also volunteer time for these students to observe fmal year students in the clinic. The third year provides students with

Finally, during fourth year, electives, albeit a limited number, are allowed. In this year students are examining patients three days a week , with the other two days in lecture.

These consist of practical exams, oral exams, and written exams.ApassisneetMinallofthese exams in order for the student to be granted their Doctor of Optometry (O.D.).

Why we don’t ‘Just Say No’ by Phillip Chee Imprint staff
Now that the Berlin Wall has collapsed, the US. government has tuned its resources to fighting drugs. But if you check carefully, the media seems to have dropped the Just Say No’ campaign, for something more exciting like a Gulf war. Doesthismeanthewarondrugsis unwinnal$e. Ur is it an implicit statement by some authorities, that drug addiction is not really important, or even inevitable. There is no question that drug abuse has taken many lives. The violence endemic to many urban U.S. cities, and in Canadian places such as Toronto and Montreal, can be traced to the drug problem. Some so&I workers say the problem is also the result of class and racial ma@naLition, especially in the U.S. While what goes unnoticed is the drug abuse in the middle-class; your typical Yuppie-user hit

Indeed, there is a complex so&I factors at work Two theories that try to uncover of human addiction, may some interesting perspectives drugs in the modern Western
First, Jared Diamond, a physiologist at UCLA medical school, wrote an article in the July issue of Natural History magazine, titled Kung Fu Kerosene Drinking’. Returning from a trip in Indonesia, he was struck by the paradox implicit in Western cigarette and alcohol ads, and began forming some thoughts on why human beings desire substances that are blatantly harmful to themselves. It is apparent from c&ent scientific evidence, that alcohol, tobacco, and cocaine have quite lethal effectson man. He wondered then, why do we continue to use such tox-

cultures. By ‘gathering insights from his work with New Guinea male birds of paradise, and coming across a paper by an Isreali biologist named Amotz Zahati he came up with a novel h othesis. He realized that all those coYpourfd and weird physical and
behavioral features of the males would make them more susceptible to predators. These may include bright plumage feathers, ornate eyedrow feathers, or hanging upside down from trees. So why would the males handicap themselves, and why do the females find this attractive. Zahavi’s controversial theory basically stated that those behavioral adaptations W seem at first a drawback to surviare actually indicators of go4 genes, because those behavioral baits themselves are handicaps. En other words, the de that has survived is actualiy proving his superior ability to survive, in spite of his handicap. Diamond points to thernalepeacockfantailandthemale bird of paradise’s plumage. He then suggested we look closely at all those cigarette ads showing how sexy it is to be a cowboy, or the beer ads showing people consuming vast quantities of alcohol and doing th@s requiring sobriety.

These traits have become superfi&l and ‘if you haven’t developed lung cancer after years of smoking several packs of cigarettes daily, you may have a gene for resistance to lung cancer, but that gene doesn’t convey intelligence, business acumen, or the ability to create happiness for your spouse and chifdren.’ This theory also has a crosscultural component. Substance abuse is not a modem phenomendn, Diamond explains. He described the drinking of kerosepe by his Indonesian kung fu friends as a way of asserting their stre;a@ Most people will die from drinking petroleum, but it has no apparent h+rmful effects on’ these men. However, there may be some hidden danger not readily noticeable. Another ritual can be found in the ancient Mayan culture. Here was evidence of a highly sophisticated civilization that apparently practiced the ceremonial use of enema tubes. The tubes allowed the user to ingest beer-like liquids that probably contained a high concentration of alcohol or hallucinogens. Such a ritual was a social event, since one could not easily operate the tubes alone. One advantage over drinking this stuff is that this route bypasses the liver, thereby avoiding the toxic effects upon the brain and other organs. It also reaches the bloodstream quicker through the intestines, rather than through the stomach. A somewhat more conventional theory is discussed by Dr. Ronald Segal in his book, Imxication. Segal claims that the need for intoxication is a basic desire of human nature, just as important as food, sex, and social contact. The need for intoxication, the use of toxic substances, may be a way of relieving mental stress. He said that the function of this desire was to attain pleasurable stimuli. The problem is that the compounds we have discovered and used are addictive and lethal. And not alI of can be easily the substances eradicated once they become coopted as foodstuff, such as tobacco and caffeine. Work in the field of molecular biochemistry has shown that many pleasurable effects are chemically-
induced, and that it is possible to seIectively target these chemical sites without causing lethal side-effects. Segal says the pharmaceutical industry is well-equipped to engineer safe drugs for the purpose of giving mental pleasure. Se@ finds this important because he says many diseases are caused by mental fatigue and stress. This can be prevented by mental stimulation. He mentioned an experiment in which rheumatoid arthritis patients were given controlled dmages of crack to help them feel better, with a purported reduction in stress-related illness. , What sort of perspecti* &&met now. In addressing the issue of the fight against cocaine, Segal directs us to the early part of the twentiee, century, when Coca-cola originally contained cocaine extract, and coca leaves and cocaine were considered healthful remedies. As the addictive and lethal properties of this and other drugs became apparent, the authorities have responded by trying to curb its use by imposing harsher and harsher penalties on their use and distribution. For instance, neurosurgeons in Peru have resorted to severing the neural pathways in the brains of users unwilling to overcome their addiction. The wars against drugs are bound to faiI, Segal admits. Twenty-seven percent of the U.S. marijuana market is supplied by domestic growers, the result of former President Nixon’s burning of the northern Mexican marijuana crops. He feels that a similar tactic to destroy the South American cocaine supply will be a catalyst for the domestic cocaine growing market. Then there will be a metamphetamine epidemic and so on, because there is no end to the number of toxicants available. And there is no end to the human need for feeling intoxicated, whether from alcohol, glue, hard drugs, tobacc%, and anything else that will give you a high. vision of a Huxleyianbrave new world coloured with soma-induced fantasies, strikes me as rather grim. If anything, maybe these two ideas will initiate other new thoughts and solutions on the corn: plex nature of addiction.
Science, Technology, and Society
One of the newest professors in th Chemistry department this year is D Melinda Gugelchuk. She is a theoret cal organic chemist who will b studying synthetic organic reactior that have a catalytic component Iik transition met&. She will also be Iec turing in &lEM 265 in the Wina term. More importantly though sh will be heading the CHEW 01 seminars this term! Dr. Gugelchu grew up in Southport, Ohio. She stal ted her academic endeavours as Phys. Ed. major in the local college After transfening into media technology at Ohio State UniversiQ she realized. her true love wa chemistry. After continuing on in schoc through a Bachelor’s program, shy went to work in the chemica abstracts services. She spent three years at this, but again decided shl was destined for other pursuits. DI Gugelchuk then went back to Ohio State into a Ph.D. program. Afte completing this she transferred tc UCLA. to do postdoctoral research Here she started working in the fielc of theoretical organic chemistry. At this time she married a Cana dian fellow who is now at the Univer sity of Guelph. Hopefully she will bc with us for a while to come.

The Limitations of the World Court and Intmtional Law The domestic laws of individual states attempt to maintain a peaceful and stable society by establishing rules which apply to all. Most citizens accept this body of law as a legitimate guide to ind’ * ual and group behaviour. The 2 te has the power to punish those who br?ak the law, the power to enforce and punish strengthens the legal system of the state. International law is made collectively by sovereign states. States are reluctant to accept a higher authority such as international law in the way that citizens accept the laws of their state. Because of this, international law can only be as effective as states allow it to be. Many people argue that, in a world of sovereign states, a state’s peace, security and independence can be guaranteed only by the possession of arms. They believe that states wit1 always be competitive. It would be unwise, they say, to put much faith in international laws which cannot be enforced. Force, they conclude, is the final judge in the international community.
One of the ways to pursue a more peaceful and stable world order is the development of international law. International law. &a sy*m of principles and rules-Vwhich attempts to regulate relations among states. It seeks to resolve disputes by applying legal principles, rather than by applying force. An important institution in the field of international law is the International Court of Justice, or the World Court, as it is popularly kn0Wl-l.
Law. There is an important difference between international Iaw and the domestic law found in individual states. In states, the sovereign authority - for example, the parliament or congress - makes the law. It is then enforced by police and interpreted by the courts. In the current international system, there is no sovereign authority above the state. States, therefore, cooperate to make international law among themselves. There is no world police authority, however, to enforce international l.ntemati0na.l
The beginnings of international law is the habitual or repeated behaviour of states in their relations with each other. These accepted norms of behaviour may eventually find their way into treaties, or become a written part of international law. For example, the 1982 United Nations (UN) Convention on the Law of the Sea was signed by almost all the states in the world. It sets down the rules which govern most of the uses of the oceans and seas. Many of these rules were previously of behaviour.
The Use of Force and International Law
Although international law deals with many aspects of the relations between states, a primary concern has been the question of war and peace. States have, for many years, claimed the right to declare and wage war against other statesSome have challenged this right but it was not until the twentieth century that meaningful steps were taken to make the use of force illegal under international law. In 1928, most of the states in the world signed the Kellogg-Wand Treaty. They pledged not to resort to war as an “instrument of national policy in mutual relations.” Despite the Kellogg-Briand Treaty, war contiNed.
In 1945, The Charter of the United Nations marked another attempt to reduce the role of force in international relations. All states which sign the UN Charter pledge to settle their disputes in a peaceful manner. In additioh, they pledge to refrain from the threat or use of force. Only in the case of selfdefence against an armed attack is a state, or group of
Don’t mess with us
states, justified in the use of force. Even so, such a measure is acceptable only until the UN Security Council has taken the necessary steps to restore international peace and security. The legal provisions of the UN Charter against the use of force have helped change attitudes about acceptable behaviour between states. They have not, however, put an end to armed conflict.
Origins and Role of the World court The International Court of Justice (XCJ) was established at the founding conference of the United Nations in 1945. The ICJ succeeded the Permanent Court of International Justice was founded in 1919. Both the earlier court, and today’s World Court, sit at The Hague, in the Netherlands. All the states which signed the UN Charter also S@d the Statute of the Court, The -UN Charter makes the Court the prinwhich
it all! cipal judicial organ of the UN. The World Court is not the only - institution in the international community which deals with questions of international law. It is, however, the highest authority on international law, and its judgments carry considerable prestige and authority. The World Court deals only with disputes between states. Under the UN Charter, its decisions are binding upon UN member-states. The Security Council is the only other UN organ whose decisions are binding. The Court’s Statute allows for the non-UN memhers - for example, Switzerland to become party to the Statute of the .
Fifteen jurists sit on the World Court. They are elected by separate votes it the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council. They must receive a majority of votes in each body. jurists sit for a nine year term and can be re-elected. No two jurists from the same state can sit on the Court at the same time. The jurists are selected so that the fifteen represent the main cultures, traditions, geographical regions and legal systems of the world. The Court can hand down two different forms of decision It can decide a dispute on the basis of law. This legal decision is final: there is no appeal. On the other band, the Court can provide a non-binding, advisory opinion Both the General Assembly and the Security Council can ask the Court for an advisory opinion on any legal question. With the permission of the General Assembly, so can any other UN organ or agency.
International Court of Justice. The Court’s jurisdiction, or authority to decide in a case, is based on the consent of the states involved in the dispute. This upholds an important principle in \mternational law: the sovereignty of the state. Because it is sovereign, no state is obliged to submit a dispute with another state to an international court.
Others argue that cooperation is, in the long run, the best interest of all states. They are convinced that the use of force as a means of solving disputes must end. In order to work toward a peaceful, secure world, states should support the development of international law, and abide by it. In the last half of this century, states have shown that they are more accepting of the rule of international . law.

a dispute arising from the treaty. By signing such a treaty, a state recognizes the jurisdiction of the Court in matters covered by that agreement.
-As set out in the World Court’s Statute, a state can declare that it accepts the Court’s jurisdiction in any matter under international law. Such compulsory jurisdiction is only valid if the other state in the dispute also accepts the jurisdiction of the Court.

by John Hymm Imprint staff I waited a year to get my hands on this book. Through a caba consisting of my own lack of funds, an apathetic section editor, and an unorganized publisher, this book reached my hands over a full year after I asked for it. It was worth the wait, but only in some regards, . Target: Prime Time evolved out of a Ph. D thesis written by the author that detailed the effects of the homosexual lobby on prime time television. Her findings compelled her to eventually attempt to tackle a broader spectrum of lobbyists, though by no means does the book claim to be comprehensive. Still, it is a good outline of the seemingly more important groups shaping T.V. The book itself is organized chronologically, providing a sketchy history of television, but more importantly, a history of the influences on television. Starting off with the NAACP claiming racism over the Amos and Andy program, Kathryn C. Montgomery continues through the time line and covers other controversial programs and episodes, and ends up with a discussion about the deregulation of the American T.V. industry and its effects on lobby groups. The book dehvers on its promise to be enlightening, but at the same time, Montgbmery failed to lose her ideological baggage and thus the
Th&ay Bobby, on the other hand, used threats of economic boycotts to get their points across. They also used a network of gay actors and producers to procure scripts and critique them. These techniques eventualIy evolved into a system that saw the television networks recognizing one gay lobby group, The Gay Media Task Force (G.M.T.F.), to which they submitted most scripts involving homosexuality for their views and comments. This continues to the present day.
Fisting the system book is at times quite unbalanced. Her tone, but not her actual words, suggests that the Gay Media Task Force should influence television, but that the MoraI Majority should not. Right or wrong, her lack of balance helps to undermine an otherwise scholarly piece of work The value of the book is its excellent treatment of the process of influence prime time shows go through, and its treatment of how this process developed. At first,, the lobby groups complained about programs that were existent and already aired. The NAACP voiced its concern about what was happening regarding racism and stereotyping while other groups were forming to stem the tide of rising television violence in the sixties. These groups, and others, all had a few things in common; they were
Montgomery choose to concentrate on liberal Iobby groups, and this of course is her right. But she does devote a chapter to conservatives, which she condescendingly titles “Cleaning Up TV”. This is the only ’ chapter in which she makes a lobby group look stupid, quoting people who echo cliches about meddling Christians and freedom of expression These objections do not turn up in any of the other chapters, where the lobbyists are seen as crusaders. AS well, she refers to conservative coalitions as ominous, an epithel offered to no liberal group. Her off-kilter and slanted approach to the book is quite a disappointment. Not because she has an opinion, but because this book is not about the validity of various lobby groups, but about their affects on television. And her * editorializing suggests that she may have some unspoken agenda.

Ger gr&ps learned to influence programs before they were broadcasted, and learned to offer advice and assistance in presenting their various partisan causes in the light they desired. Hence, the lobbyists switched from being reactionary to being part of the television cycle of production. In the long run, Montgomery claims, this neutered them. The lobby groups got their foot in the door two ways; one illustrated by the Population Institute (P-I.), and one by the gay lobby. The P.I. hosted parties and convinced the media of

It should be mentioned .$at there’s nothing very distinctive or unusual about the %eads’sound; they sound a lot like scores of other bands floating around (Husker Du is the one that comes to my mind most often). However, they have at least two things going for them in a big way. First is the strength of their songwriting: every track on Lovq is as worthwhile as it is derivative. Second, their diversity: they are capable of writingemotionalballads justasgood as their more standard rockers. To put it simply, this is American indeprmdent guitar music. h’s not bloated heavy metal like Mudhoney or Soundgarden. It’s not smarmily “experimental” like Sonic Youth. It’s not full of attitude like Dinosaur Jr. It’s not self-consciously weird like the Butthole Surfers. It’s just good, direct rock ‘n’ roll geetar music. Give it a listen.

Moore (the dude who recorded the now legendary Trinity sesgions for the Cowboy Junkies),the CD sounds like it was recorded off AM radio.

songs. Nature is the strongest image, with rain, thunder, clouds etc. mentioned in most of the songs. However this clever word play (which sounds better in a review than it does on the album) is offset by songs like the sdng Rain with the ingenious technique of repeating the phrase “frozen memories”, and stretching the word “memories” to four syllables the second time around. Geez, guys get a rhyming dictionary or something, If you take this time, The Red House turns out to at least be better than average, but that’s also why 1 would say you should hear the album, but c@n’t bother buying it. With the increase in the number of record labels, the number of albums released in one year, and thus the gross number of shitty bands, it’s %nportant not to claim something is good by default, ie. because it’s better than most of the stuff out there. Just because a band can phy their instruments, even if they can play them better than average, this isn’t enough to state that they are a ‘good’ band. 1 would definitely have given this album more enthusiasm if they didn’t try to overpower everything by a hard rock sound. However, if you actually like the first single I Said A Prayer and are going to buy the album, you should be surprised because the first single is easily one of the weakest songs on the whole album. The Red House is not that far from being a strong debut album. It will be interesting to see what they do next. They’re off to a good start.
by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff The Red House’s self titled album is one that can easily be defined in terms of comparison. The lead singer sounds like Gowan on more than. a couple of tracks, and the music has a definite U2 sound to it. The majority of the album has that sort of typical Bryan Adams rock kind of sound to it. However the album also has a certain quality that demands m’ore attention than you might think it deserves after a first listen. Tracks like The l3r~a.m I

But the strongest point about the lyrics is that they have common themes throughout the

Mustangs score late try-for win
Warriors lose opener to the Purple I Satan Warrior
by peter Brown
Imprint staff The temperature plummeted last Friday night, and the rugby team’s hopes did the same on Saturday afternoon. Opening on the road against Western, a traditionally strong team in Division I, the Warriors suffered a disappointing loss by a 9-3 score. ‘%Ie played Western’s game and lost,” commented assistant coach Derek Humphries, referring to the Mustangs’ near-perfect execution of the kicking game. Kicking was indeed the key to the positional play and scoring, as Waterloo missed four penalty kick tries in the first half alone, finishing l-4 in three-pointers. But head coach Derek Quistberg saw some silver lining in UW’s play.
were rucking well, and the strums were even I saw some good things out there, but we definitely need TV sharpen our counter-attack” Quistberg saw SOme inspired running from Stel Nikolakakis and hungry possessional play from Paul Toon. To Western’s credit, they played physical and opportunistic rugby, winning most of the lineouts and
o&r possessional play. A pair of Mustang backs provided all of the defence the ‘Stangs needed, senhg the ball out of danger with high, booming kicks. This points to one area of the game that UW was completely outplayed: the counterattack.
Granted that the Stangs kicked superbly, but Waterloo never seemed to get their running game on track. The Warriors started strongly, pressing into Western territory, despite the 3angs’ boots. With play taking

kicks only~minutes into the game. Later in the half, UW turned away a ’ Western drive and the official ordered a strum 15 metres out from the Waterloo endzone, almost directly in front of the uprights. A UW player got sloppy and a penalty kick was awarded, the Westem kicker chipping it easily over the crossbar to take the lead 3-O. This was the halftime score, after Waterloo missed two more penalty kicks. Finally, in the second half, Peter Keir connected from about 25 me&s out to tie the game 3-3. But the ‘Stangs wouldn’t let Waterloo build on this momentum, pinning the Black and Gold in their own end time and again. With five minutes left to play, Western finally broke through for the first major of the game, a try in the left corner. After the successful convert, the score stood at 9-3. In other OUAA rugby action this past weekend, three time defending champion Queen’s Golden Gaels dominated Laurier 25-9, and McMaster edged York 12-10 in the other Division I match In Division II play, Toronto trounced Bnxk 24-3, Carleton blanked Trent 20-0, and Guelph, relegated to the lower division, handled RMC 10-3. Tomorrow, the warriors will play their home opener at Columbia Field against the fellow cellar-dwelling York Yeomen. Game time is 1:00 pm; let’s see you there.
Slow start for Waterloo football
Guei’phfourth quarter surge doubles UWefforts War&r
by Rich Nichol Impxint staff
It doesn’t matter what the sport is, but if you are playing competitively and expect to win, you’ve got to keep your head in the game. The 1990 University of Waterloo football Warriors have yet to do that. In their season opener at the University of Guelph, the Warriors lost 22-11 as a resuli of a fourth quarter scoring,
melled York 29-12. Guelph did not play a fantastic game, but rather an average one. In general, the Waterloo offence was stagnant (153 total yards of net offence compared to 268 by Guelph) and warning shots were fired early. Starting quarterback Dave Sharp fumbled the ball in the pocket on the first series, giving the Gryphons possession and great field position.

Last year, no opponents took the Waterloo football team as any serious threat. But now Knight says that his players must understand that the other teams in the OUAA are more prepared for W this time around. In the other OUAA games on Saturday, Western bowled over Toronto 33-15, Iaurier defeated McMaster 24-l 1, and Windsor pum-
