Remembrance

Simonton slide show by Dave Thomson xmpli.+ staff

December .6, 1990 marked the first anniversary of the Montreal Massacre. Students, faculty, and staff of UW joined others across North America in mourning the fourteen women Engineering students slain at Ecde Pdytechnique. This candledghting took place at a memorial service in St. Jerome’s Siegfrii Hall. Photo by Dave Thomson

Bandits bag Bomber booty by Dave Thomson Imprint staff Someone spent their Christmas holidays building up their compact disc collection by robbing the Bombshelter of theirs. Between Christmas Day and December 28, a compact disc player and over 150 compact discs were stolen from the Bombshelter. Thieves entered the bar by breaking a window in the oute! door that leads to the patio. Manager Dave Bombshelter Playfair said he was surprised that the speakers stored between the double doors and none of the many neon

signs were not stolen as well. He also was upset that they took his Stompin Tom Connors poster. The stolen merchandise was valued at approximately three thousand dollars and was covered by insurance. Playfair replaced about four-fifths of the music on New Years day with the help of John Jongerius, Manager of the Record Store. The Bombshelter DJ’s were especially upset because they took pride in their claim to having the best music on campus, said Playfair. He aIso mentioned that a new alarm system will be installed shortly. The University of Waterloo Security is investigating the breakin.

The Humanities Theatre may have some really backwards policies about taking photqs inside the theatre, but they still manage to host a number of excellent speakers. Friday, November 30,199O is a fantastic example. That night a crowd of approximately 150 people showed up to listen to a former professional model, Ann Simonton, speak on the theme of “Sex, Power, and the Media.‘The only unfortunate thing about the whole evening was that most of the audience already believed in what she was saying. That is to say, if the Federation of Students really wants to make an effort toward educating frosh about sexism, they should videotape one of her presentations and show it during frosh‘ week. I digress. Simonton started off her presentation by telling the audience a little bit about her history. She used to be a professional model who appeared on the covers of magazines such as Seventeen and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She now describes modelling as “glamourous prostitution” and herself as a radical feminist. She formed the group&~&~ Watch in 1984 with the goal of educating people about sexism in the media to bring about change. She then proceeded to show several hundred slides of offensive ads, talking about each one and bringing up many frightening points. The media play a very large part in shaping peoples’ opinions about gender roles. She said that Americans watch 5 and-a-half hours per day of television, which stereotype women as having certain characteristics. David Lynch’s Twin Fkaks series was criticized for portraying - as many shows do - women as “glamourous victims.” As well, the advert&men&

project negative images of females. The women are either scatterbrained housewives or “supermoms,” both of which are dealthy images. A large number of ads include barely dressed women with the advertisers’ product, the women being the implied bonus. As we& women are nearly always pictured in a passive way, laying around in a bikini somewhere. As well, when men are shown in movies or ads, they always are shown in an aggressive situation, always the vicious and glamourous protector who has power over everyone else. When men and women are shown together in advertisements, the women’s clothes ‘rarely cover more than half of her body while the men are usually fully dressed. Simonton told the audience that these stereotypes, aside from inciting violence against women, also make women feel insecure about their bodies and their looks. She showed one particular grotesque slide of a women receiving a new type of facial treatment, whereby a small rotating wire brush is used to peel off a few layers of skin - off of the whole face. A few more slides demonstrated her assertion that the ideas of bondage or some type of restraint is often used to sell products. The women in ads are somehow restrained and seem to be enjoying it. So why do women still buy these types of products? Because “women have learned to be good victims.” According to Simonton, 50 per cent of women are beaten at 1eu.s~once in their lifetime by their partner. Moving on to pornographic magazines, she drew frightening conclusions about the Iink between these magazines and violence against women. One photo essay from Hustler magazine depicted a women being gang-raped in a pool hall. Another issue of Hustler showed

we view in between the shows alsc three nude young (teen-age) oriental women lounging around in some wooded area near a stream. In the last photo of the sequence, the three girls were hung from a tree. About a month later, a young oriental girl was found hanging in a tree i,n a wooded area near a stream. Simonton stressed that the effects of pornography should not be underestimated. She said that the pornography industry is wo-i?h over-eight billion dollars a year, which is more than the film and record industry combined. Pornography affects human intamacy in what she describes as a sexually repressed society. After showing some slides of little girls’ fashions, she said that a study was once done which concluded.that women learn to be passive and quiet as early as age eleven. The last slide shown was one of a nude male lying down with a snake wrapped around his upper body, which caused the whole audience to break out in laughter. The reason for the laughter was at sad one. We have internalized so many image of women in those types of positions, that when we saw’ a male portrayed that way, it looked ridiculous. How do we change? Simonton said that educating people is the only way to bring around change. Censorship will not work. She cited the example of child pornography, which is illegal yet the most sought-after type of pornography. The power than men have is also a hard thing to share, but something that must be done. Two-thirds of the world’s work is done by women foI ten per cent of the world’s wages, said Simonton. People are scared 01 denial is easier than change understanding. Simonton summed up saying, “you can live in a bubble, it’s very easy to. I’m glad mine was burst.”

Last year, Imprint and the Iandlord and Tenant information office wrote an article on the questionable rent increases taking place at the 256 PhilIip St. townhouse complex. Recently, controversy was again aroused by the owners of the complex; 488882 Ontario Ltd., and the landlords; Cobbler Hill partner&b applied to convert the e&e 68 u&its ox-row housing into condominium building units. This application was made as of June 15.

$lOOG endowmerit work terms, Mundy began developing playground equipment and later postural aids for the handimp d. He devised a method of r orming “foamed-in-place” plastic supports molded to the severely deformed body of the user. As a result, his subjects - at the time from Kitchener’s Sunbeam were then able to sit Home upright. They had previously been confined to lying on floor mats. Money for these early developments was provided by the A.R Kaufman E;oundation. Mundy then approached the Waterloo Research Institute for help in seeking a patent on his development, and as a result became one of the first and most successful clients of the Canadian Industrial Innovation Centre. At the institute he met Frank Phripp who was then handling the start-up tre.

Conversions are the result of a distressed rental market in which the landlord sells off every unit due to de&x&g profitability. As the owners of 256 Phillip St. currentIy hold a very high mortgage on the rental complex, they are attempting to improve their financial position by increasing the current rents by more than the statutory 4.6 per cent. As a long-term financial solution, the ownem are prepared to sell off all 68 units as condominiums. The conversion application must comply with the Rental Housing Protection Act (1989), primarily in the Notice of Application under Section 4(l) to Section 8 of the Act, and five criteria outlined by the Condominium Conversion Policy of the City of Waterloo, in order for approval to convert tb Condominiums to be granted.

A serious rental housing shortage currently exists in Waterloo, due to the large number of students who are seeking rental accommodation within a short distance from campus. This demand for accessible and affor-

It is, therefore, imperative that current levels of accbmmodation be maintained, if not expanded. *me prop-1 for conversion to condominium is not feasible, at least at the present time, due to the dep ressed housing market, the current demand for rental housing, and the current economic climate in general, The ’ 256 Philip St. townhouse complex, located within the city of Waterloo, is one of the most accessible areas for students to live in while attending with UW or Wilfrid Laurier University. The close proximity to both campuses, to retail space and services, and the attrafiveness of the complex, are all qualities whiti depict the popularity of this studentcentred complex. which Perhaps the aspect infuriated me most about the propusal for conversion was the &key &en to residents asking abottt their interest in purchasing a unit, were the proposal successfuL According to the 0fIicial Plan for the City of Waterloo, a minimum of 75 per cent of the residents must agree to the conversion, or must agree to purchase a unit, In October 1990, the complex owners’ solicitor attempted to survey the residents regarding their interest in proposed conversion The survey circulated asked respndents to checkoff either (ur both) of two boxes on the page. I-Iuweve( each of these correlated to responses in favour of the proposal - there was no 0 tion for respondents to disagree wi tE: the Propose The preliminary Public Meeting for the Rental Housing Protection Act application at 256 Phillip St. has been set for January 9,1991, in the Council Chambers, third floor, City Hall. The Planning Department attempted to schedule the meeting during the fall term, SO that students who had been surveyed and were more aware of the issue, would still be available. The Federation of Students has already sent out a letter informing students of the situation; however this will have to be repeated as there will be new students in the complex. Students will also be going door-todoor with& the complex to both collect and distribute information. If you would like m&e information or have any concerns, please contact Kim Speers, Vice-President University Affairs at 888-4042, or drop in to the Fed Office CC235.

In November 1990, for the first time in recent memory, the Presidency of the Federation of Students changed hands in the middle of the academic year. John Velliriga, citing personal and health reasons, announced his resignation at a Students’ Council meeting on November 25. Former Vice-President (Operations and Finance) Tess Sliwinski succeeded him after the Federation’s Nov. 30 General Meeting and will share some of the presidential duties with VicePresident (University Affairs) Kim Speers. “Well be more like co-presidents,” Sliw-inski said, while admitting that there were certain “ex officio” tasks which the legal president must carry out. She said that Student Council will be interviewing candidates for an executive assistant to help herself and Speers with the additional work-load.

Thesuccessionby-law was not amendedat the GeneralMeet@ The General Meeting ended a week of controversy and backroom decision-making within the Federation. A by-law amendment proposed by the Policies and By-Laws Committee to be voted on at the GM would have given the Fed Board of Directors the power to select the successor should the President resign after

The “No” option garnered 65.6 per cent (2,894 votes), including 83.5 per cent (800 of 957 votes cast) in the Engineering Faculty.

This poll also had the second-highest percentage of voter turnout, with 36.2 per cent of 1,396 eligible voters taking part. ‘!I was surprised by the lopsidedness of the results,” fomer Fed President John Vellinga told Imprint, ‘From the feedback 1 was getting 1 expected something closer to 60 to 40 voting no.” VeILinga also said that he was disturbed by !‘the orgy of negative campaigning” that took place during the days leading up to the vote. “The outcome itseIf wasn’t disappointing,” he said. “Though the proposal that I supported was defeated, the vote still told us that our perceptions of what students wantkd w&

November 1. The by-laws currently stipulate that the VPOF automatically becomes President. Earlier that week, the Board, in a supposedly confidential meeting, voted 5-2 to appoint Speers president if the amendment was passed. The release of this decision, combined with the timing of the proposed ByLaw change, pitted supporters of the two Vice-Presidents against each other and threatened to politicize the vote.

However, the amendment was tabled until the next General Meeting, to be held during the spring, thus dictating that Sliwinski would assume the position.

President Tess Sliwinski agreed with Vellinga’s assessment of the results. “I’m not disappointed by the result, and I’m quite pleased with the turnout,” she said. Both Sliwinski and Vellinga felt that the relatively high turnout showed clearly that students felt strongly on this issue. To help with planning future proposals, Sliwinski has distributed a Student Life Centre surrey which asks students what they want in such a facility, She says that she has received over a hundred surveys back, many with strong opinions about the defeated proposal. The survey is on page 10 of this issue of Imprint, and should be returned to the Federation office in CC235 tihen filled out. The total cost of the proposal, as prepared by Brisbin, Brook Beynon Architects, and the audited financial report from Price Waterhouse will be about $23,000. This money will be drawn frum the trust fund into which revenue from the $10 Athletic Facilities fee has been put. The Feds also budgeted $12,000 for the administration of the referendum. As of this term, the Athletic Facilities fee will be discontinued. It was introduced when a referendum to approve the construction of Columbia Ice Field was passed in the early 198Os, and has beem collected ever since. At present, the Athletic Facilities fund stands at about $375,000, since the fee has been collected since the Ice Field mortgage was paid off two terms ago. According to Sliwinski, the money in the fund will be used at a later date to help finance some improvement in student facilities such as an expansion of the Campus Centre.

Diagnosing -media sickness With no paper to publish and nothing better to do this holiday season than sit around and watch “Year in Review” programs, I indulged myself, and spent some time in front of the TV. Just as our news media sifts, selects, and simplifies world events, thus making the news as much as reporting it, year-end reviews further compress events into a series of flat twodimensional images. In lieu of another rehash of the various “important” world events of 1990, I would like to discuss some of the ways in media shapes events as it reports them. In some sense, this a bleak look toward 1991 and beyond, since I feel that we lack the tools and will to examine our society and problems. The most sincere and wellmeant attempts to discuss and study our predicament regularly, and will continue to come to naught when our news media, our method for wide exchange and dissemination of information, is so incompetent in its role. . As the medium of television has evolved, it has played a great role in the remolding of human consciousness; in the reorientation of the perceptual process to favour shallow interpretations of events; bite-sized chunks of information rather than more extensive data. As we enter another new year, there exists a crisis in the human condition, one which our media has not only helped to create, but one which the nature of their method and prdgramming has made them, and consequently society at large, incapable of addressing. Further, the public, addicted to the comforting simplicity of television image, desires that the sensation be produced in other media -on the radio, in neppapers, and even within newspapeti. A. recent issue of USA Today made the preposterous boast that a future edition would feature an article on “How to stop the killing,” as a follow-up to an article discussing the record high murder rates in 19 US cities. This arrogance pervades much of the popuJar media; remember Walter Cronkite’s sign-off message “And that’s the way it is”? An intractability, an absolutism defines much of the news which we see; Hard Copy, Expw, 48 Hours, the names imply a claim to accuracy, nay, infallibility. This of course flies in the face of the errors which regularly make their way into news reporting, thanks to the constant pressure to get a scoop, to ‘beat” the competition. The problems which now confront us, our nation, this planet, and which threaten our survival are of a complexity such that they cannot in any adequate way be dealt with by our current news media. We cannot take steps to redress our crumbling ecosystem without sufficient information and understanding of the grave predicament, but television, the primary source of news information for over 90 per cent of our population, has never developed the capacity to cover stories in a penetrating and informative fashion. Where the glorified pulp of 60 Minutes passes for profound coverage; where the one-sided discussion of

NightZine passes for open debate. News, drama, and comedy se@e into one cohesive medium. When dramatic or sitcom problems are regularly solved

within the course of a 30 minute show, how can we expect to foster the capacity or desire to seriously confront the growsymbiosis of political, socioing economic, and environmental problems which bring us to the brink of international chaos - a chaos not so evident on primetime TV. We in Canada are well aware of the diminishing public confidence in our political leaders; a loss of “vision” being touted as the reason for our discontent. But, just as our media creates and fosters the public image of politicians, so must the media establishment bear a large portion of the blame for our, and the general worldwide crisis in leadership. The decade of the eighties, thanks to a magnificently-orchestrated media attack on the part of Ronald Reagan’s staff, saw the reduction of political leadership to series of stage-managed “sound bites” and “appearances.” These were designed perfectly to be incorporated into nightly newscasts, since the general impulse of journalists, like other humans, is toward laziness, the path of least effort. In times of plenty - well, for the white middle classes - this tactic worked to perfection. It gave the appearance of competence and certainty, while not challenging the edifice of comfort and privilege in which the middle classes resides. As the economy worsened, and the bloom went off the flower of our selfsatisfaction, we began to demand solutions from our politicians - not merely solutions, but quick solutions, just like the ones we were accustomed to on TV. Of course, solutions are not in any way easy, quick, or painless. Poverty and homelessness. cannot be solved quickly, and painlessly; sexism and racism cannot be’ legislated or banned into oblivion; unemployment and inflition cannot be made to disappear with--the wave of a well-manicured hand from the steps of Houses of Government. Not only are the public~unwilling and unprepared to accept the hard decisions which sometimes have to be made, our leaders equally cannot make those decisions. Furthermore, our leaders, never having had to lead, cannot answer the challenge. When honesty is needed, they dissemble; when forceful action is required, they waffle; when patience and moderation is essential, they act with haste. The politicians cannot be held entirely to blame. They are merely the products of the media machine which created them, which abetted their acts of deception. “As a rule we are, if not handmaidens of the establishment, at least blood brothers to the establishment.. _We end up the day usually having some version of what the White House . . . has suggested as a story” - ABC White House correspondent, and co-host of prime Time Live Sam , Donaldson. Despite the fact that many perceive news media to be circling vultures, feasting upon the carrion of disaster and crisis, our media is lax, shockingly so, when it comes to holding government and corporations accountable for their-actions. Not only are our media unwilling to alienate a fickle public by challenging the my@s of image, but they are unwilling to

v 0.*

risk the possibility that the image of comnearpetence, objectivity, and miraculous infallibility which they create for themselves might be disputed. They too, might be implicated and might be forced to admit their own malfeasance in r the shallow lies of power. We seem to be confronted by an endless series of “crises” because our media either lacks the perceptivity to recognize festering societal sores; or because they lack the courage and editorial autonomy to scrape at the varnish which protects the hallowed notion normalcy which comforts the public. How is the public expected to take the Oka crisis seriously and understand it when the media has never given the native situation consistent and intensive coverage? How are we expected to take the, destruction of our environment seriously, and act with conviction when we have been trained only to react when events reach a point of emergency. Our media refuses to challenge the essential values of avarice, central to the cycle of consumption which defines our economic system. How indeed. Media outlets are owned and controlled by corporations whose exisience is predicated upon this very impulse to possess in quantity. Media outlets themselves are profitmaking enterprises, and bad news doesn’t sell. If your paper doesn’t stroke and gratify the complacent public, another will, and will profit for it, Morgto the point, if your paper doesn’t cater and tailor coverage to suit corporate advertisers, another will. When the Kin@~2 WIzig-Standard ran a feature article telling teaders how to sell theii own homes, without using a real estate lcqmpany, al! their realtoi. custotiers pulled thek advertising, and boycotted the paper for a time. AS&W York Times’executive editor Max Frankel said in 1987, “The News Department of l%e New York Times does not wince at the thought of ‘marketing’. .. their many products.” What will change the predicament we have: a media incapable and unwilling to report extensively into various socioeconomic, political, and environmental ills which plague planet Earth, 1991. The public has shown continual unwillingness to confront grave problems with anywhere near the necessary degree of consistent exertion to remedy, or begin to remedy them. Our media - our commercial journalists - must shed the cowardice, and shackles which their corporate masters enforce. To use a metaphor: we need to make the two-dimensional medium of television explode with the complexity of a cubist painting - a type of image which went beyond the concept of mere “depth” in attempting to capture threedimensions; it tried to capture all faces of an object in the same image. Otherwise, I fear 1991 will be merely a progressively worse version of the turmoil that was 1990 . . . and for that matter 1992 will be worse than this year . . .

(“Pro-Choice

As one of the organizers of the recent AIDS/Sexuality Awareness Week, I’d like you to know that a note expressly inviting participation from Students for Life was left in their mailbox on November 7, a week-andhalf before the event took place. To my knowledge, their mailbox has never been emptied. If B. Zister is a metiber of this organization, I would suggest that (s) he take it upon her/himself to empty that mailbox. If not, then I would suggest that that (s)he get involved instead of merely writing angry letters. What exactly do you mean by comparing free condoms to “finding (them) in the bargain bin or half-price box at the drug store”? Surely, you aren’t insinuating that the condoms we distributed were of poor quality, damaged or otherwise substandard? I can assure you that they were not. I would also be interested in seeing your research statistics on condom effectiveness, as I fmd myself hardpressed to believe you have never heard that condoms are 90 per cent effective.Also, speaking on my own behalf as a prochoice male, there seems to be a belief that pro-choice equals anti-life. Not so; rather prochoice means just that - a freedom to choose. I am truly sorry that you seem to have gotten so little out of the AIDS/Sexuality Awareness Week - I invite you to participate in future events for the benefit of the ,entie community.

letter of Regarding Dave, Thomson’s November 30 (“SLB Reflections”), there were a few comments in it which I found to be more. than mildly offensive. the article’s main thrust was a summary of the rights and wrongs committed during the Student me Building referendum, and he made some valid points on that topic. However, there are some comments about my faculty, comments which I hope, in retrospect, he realizes never should have been made and have no place in a university newspaper. In the referendum, Engineering as a faculty was most strongly opposed to the SLB proposal, and Dave Thomson attempts to explain this. According to him, “Engineers generally don’t support anything that doesn’t specifically benefit their faculty.” To a certain extent this-may be true, but I would have a hard time believing that we are the only cuIprits. Or could it be that I have simply ignored this for over three years? While I can only speak for my own reasons for voting against the proposal they have nothing to do with the attitude presented in the above quote, and instead, have everything to do with the proposal itself. 1 would be very surprised if most of my colleagues didn’t feel the same way. Incidentally, Engineering had the highest voter turnout, and this indicates to me that people were voting No instead of not voting. I guess this isn’t surprising when you consider .where a lot of the “unofficial No committee” was based, not that I condone the way they violated election rules. If you feel that our rationale behind voting as we did is shallow self-centredness, you are unjustly painting a lot of people with the same brush. That, of course, is prejudice, which leads to discrimination. I was kind of hoping that Imprint’s contributors would not be interested in prolonging the existence of crap like that. As for the comment that we all worship a piece of steel, I would like to see you try to

locate some piece of steel that I worship - I don’t think you can. Our mascot is a mascot. Period. If it was not the EnPjneering Society that was responsible for spraying the lawn by the JZC, they deserve an apology. If it was (and I -don’t h&e&y know), &h&i cannot condone vandalism or violating the eIection rules, it would be a delicious irony that my fees to Engsoc support vandalism, while those which goto Imp&t help give a forum for poor journalism laced with prejudice.

The informatiun in this article is based on the limited facts made available tu me by Vector marketing recruitment stuf in Waterlou, and reasonable extrapulatiuns. All upiniuns stated am striety my own. Please cull Vectur marketing at 1252889 fur more infurmation. You have probably seen the flyers, posters, or ads in Imprint which boldly proclaim “Starting Rate $11.05”. These pamphlets give little other information, other than the mysttious name “Vector Marketing”, and a list of job features (flexible hours, not telemarketing, . . . ). The ad advises you to “call now and keep trying if the lines are busy”! So I called - I’m a typical sta&g student and could use some extra dough. The receptionist asks where I saw the ad, what my name and phone number& and says that she cannot tell me anything else about the job (except that “the $11.05 starting rate IS guaranteed). An interview time is arranged, when I am to be told all the details. Now, unlike the people at Vector, I will be concise, Vector is a marketing subsidiary of Cutco (an American company related to Alcan and others). Vector is well established in the U.S. and are growing quickly in Canada. Cutco manufactures knives (kitchen, table, hunting), and related products (shears, forks, etc). We were given a half-hour product demonstration (they are magnificent knives!) before the selling method was discussed. Applicant selection criteria was never mentioned (admittedly, I did leave early - I probably wasn’t their type anyway). Accepted applicants are asked to immediately pay a $25 cash training seminar registrationfee (2.5 day seminar). Vector is a

marketing? direct marketing organization. Sales representatives are sent to homes to demonstrate the knives. Prospects are selected by reference only (no cold-calling). In order to demonstrate the product, it is highly recommended that you purchase a sales kit (worth $400), for the discounted price of $100. Vector insists that these knives (guaranteed for Iife) are a valuable investment and couId be resold, but they do not buy back kits when you leave the company. Beyond that, I do not know any other details. Vector spends a great deal of time selling themselves to candidates. I was shown ’ part of a flashy video, in which the president ’ of Vector describes “People, Product, +. *, and emphasizes Vector’s “integrity”. There are many management opportunities, and most present managers are under 30. Perhaps then, Vector is not a bad company to work for. They claim to hire students because we’re young and energetic. Maybe it is because were cheap and gullible? It is obvious that Vector’s recruiters are salesmen which use every sales trick that they’ve learned selling knives, to sell their company. The Vector interview process was a waste of time. Why can’t they prepare a two page handout giving a detailed job de@ption and answering common, reasonable questions (what product, how sold, what hours, compensation, skills required), and then alIow other information to be given during the interview? If Vector wishes to recruit University students on this and other campuses, I insist that they treat us like educated adults and stop wasting our time!

To the editor, Now, graphic novels and their relative worth is not one of the most important topics to start a forum on, but as an avid reader of this allegedly “illiterate” form, I feel a need to speak out on the charges made by Jay Shorten against this burgeoning art form. Since I have actually reud these novels, I feel that I am in a good position to make coinments on their worth. Unlike Mr. Shorten, who seems content to criticize what he admittedly has not read. (Take heart, Mr. Shorten, you have a good future ahead of you. as a member of the Ontario Censor Board with an attitude like that.) First: the reason that the authors of these works use words and pictures is to strengthen the power of their message. Maus, quite simply, works better as a graphic novel. The images underline the metaphor. The authors have NOT lost the ability to write a story they choose to use this medium because they feel the story will benefit from being told in this fashion. To call such writers as Art Spiegelman, Alan Moore, Los Bros Hemandez, arid Frank Miller “illiterate” simply because they are equally good u&s& as they are writers smacks of ignorance. Perhaps Mr. Shorten would be so kind as to read the works in question before ~assimz his judgment. a A

OFS conference- in Waterloo by Kim Spews Special to Imprint

The Ontario Federation of Students is an organization representing approximately 250,000 students in Ontario. The organization was formed in 1972, with the University of Waterloo as one of its founding members. The student leaders of Ontario elect members to numerous positions at the*-%0 semi-annual general meetings to represent the students of Ontario. The Ontario Federation of Students is a very active and effective organization given their monetary and time constraints. The elected students, and the staff of OFS, are busy lobbying the provincial and

federa governments, having meetings with other recognized lobby groups in order to form coalitions to fight the underfunding of post-secondary institutions,

Annual YBF conference

You could be NorwayI bound by John Mason Imprint staff Are you interested in attending an international conference on human rights, particularly children’s rights, women’s rights and an environmental bill of rights? The UW chapter of Youth Building the Future (YBF) is now selecting two student delegates to attend the fifth annd YBF conference at Oslo University, Oslo, Norway from July 22-29,199l. Over the past four years the UW chapter has sent delegates to the annual conference in locations as incontiguous as Melbourne, Buenos Aires and Cairo. In 1988 UW hosted the conference on campus. YBF is an international student network .created by university students concerned about the well-being of their planet and its inhabitants. The group’s aim is to promote peace and cooperation through cultural exchange and education. The annual conference is the highlight of each year’s activities. YBF is not a single-issue group,but is concerned with a variety of important questions affecting the world’s future. The conferences and the network are a means to break down barriers brought about by lack of understanding comknowledge, munication and political rnisinformatidn; to increase the appreciation of

other social, cultural and political systems and to develop action plans for solving problems that face the world. The network had its beginning in 1987 at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology when the first conference was organized in conjunction with MIT’S centenary cekebrations. Ninety university students from 18 countries participated in that first conference. Since the initial conference, concurrent annual conferences have been held at UW in August 1988, the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina in July 1989 and th6 AGedcan University- in Cairo, Egypt in July 1990. The number of delegates and countries represented at the annual conferences has continued to grow with each year. Twenty-five countries were represented by 125 students at the most recent conference in Cairo. Delegates to the conference have their transportation and conference expenses covered but must commit to leading the group during the year following their return. Selected students must also prepare a report about the conference atid share their experiences through newspaper articles and other means.

UW’s YBF group is active in fundraising to cover the transportation for the the Canadian delegates. As well, the UW group is planning to sponsor the transportation of a student from Peru to the 1991 conference. Any interested students may attend an information meeting on Monday, January 7,199l at 4:30 pm in Campus Centre rm. 110 or phone 746-0002.

Speed reading course offered Reading at university is a serious task, a job if you will, and should be treated as such. A speed reading course offered to students can teach far more than how to turn pages quickly, it can improve comprehension as well. Foster-B&& in cooperation with the Federation of Students, has offered $hi+ speed reading course three times each year for the past eight years. The course is also offered at the Universities of GueIph and Western. When most people think about speed reading, they usuaIly associate it with fantastic speeds, yet they also associate it with low comprehension. WhiIe the high rates of speed are produced by this course, most people are surprised to learn that an improvement in comprehension is also produced. The average person reads 150-250 word per minute, with 40 to 60 per cent comprehension. Most students who take our course experience a four to six times improvement in their speed. Thus, once a person has successfully completed the course, they read over 1000 words per minute and also see a 10 to 15 per cent improvement in their comprehension. Most students, in fact read from 1200 to 1400 words per minute and score about 75 to 80 per cent comprehension. In the past, scores as high

as 5900 words per minute with 79 per cent comprehension have been achieved. One of the most wing scores belonged to a student who achieved 100 per cent on each of the half-dozen comprehension test during the course. The students are told that if they put some effort into learning this skill they will end up re@ng faster. The increase in comprehension only increases the time savings that can be achieved. The skills taught by the course are practical and flexible. You can decide how you wish to read - slowly and deIiberateIy or quickly, allowing yourself time to re-read material if you so choose. The fact that the student can read more mateM in a shorter period of time can help alleviate some of the inevitable stress that university can cause when exams and deadlines approach. Along with teaching these courses, Foster-Black conducts one and twoday seminars for business. This fail, it is expected that the course will also be available on cassette tape. These will be accompanied by a work book and four novels. This will enable those can’t attend the course to acquire the skills on their own time. The course begins on Tuesday, Jan. 30 from 7-9 pm, MC 4064. Contact the Federation office for price and ltication. Pre-registration is recommended.

There is very little opportunity - as it was when I was working as a model - little or no opportunity for me to feel like, hey, where are the women outside protesting the beauty contest I was in, where were the women protesting the campaigns I was in? There weren’t any. And now there’s starting to be and I think that once an inquisitive young woman who is in the pictures or purchasing the products can say: “Oh look. . . there’s a group of women who don’t feel the same way”

It’s the most expensive and sought after pornography in the States. So good luck with the legislation. . . that did a lot of good. I think that there are obviously other ways but we have to do it educationally. Many people think, well, start when they’re young and maybe through generations we can make a change. Well that’s also, I think, ridiculous because look at what they’ve done with AIDS in the last few years to take it from a term they’ve never really talked about, nobody knew anything about it, and now everyone knows everything about it. That could happen just the same with violence against women. If that became a priority and we said we want to stop violence against women and these are the ways it’s being taught, glamoutied, made available, you know. . * this is the ways that it exists in our culture. I was really touched by a piece that a Saudi woman wrote recently about how she pities Western women and I thought, you know, they can’t drive, they wear these long outfits, these dresses, the men own them or something. But this woman said we don’t have child molestation, we don’t have drug ,abuse, we don’t have to bring fall 1990 Media Watch our children up into that kind of a important to start to break down and world.

Also, you can be assured that with three of the teams from the OUAA West ranked among the top ten in Canada, the division will have strong representatives for the CIAU championship with a wellqualified division winner and one, if not two, wildcard teams.

The best explanation for the sporadic play of this cager crew from Thunder Bay is the thousands of miles of travelling logged during the season It must be energy-draining to play out a league schedule made up of weekend double headers, containing bi-weekly road trips to distant universities in Southern Ontario. However, Lakehead is slowly progressing into a contender in this its third season in the toughest division in Canada: 3-11 in 1988-89 and 5-9 in 1989-90.

The OIJAA West’s fourth highest scorer last season Andy Zienchuk (17.7 ppg) has taken a year off from playing with the Wtiors along with Chris Troyak This clears the way for a starring role from sophomore Mike Duarte. Waterloo’s biggest story this season is the recruitment of one of Canada’s top rookie prospects - 6’7” hometown product Sean VanKoughnett. The junior national team member has been averaging 22 points per game in the pre-season, amassing 34 points in the Warriors’ opening round game of the Winnipeg Invitational Tournament.

UW caaers’ hiahest Doint outmt Warrior Basketball, ,I*

Chicago 74-59 for third place Freshman sensation Sean VanKoughnett received tourney MVP honours, contributing a total of 42 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors in their two games. Fellow forward Chris Moore, who scored a minuscule three plaints in the semis, went on a second half bucket rampage in the championship game to collect twwgame totals of 25 points and 21 rebounds. He was deservingly named to the tournament all-star roster. The Warriors’ high-octane offence was not the result of sniper-like accuracy, z$hough they did sink a respectable Si percent from tie field.

Instead, they won it with dominating board work, out-rebounding the Lancers 46-21. Statistical autopsies on the Bordertown crew also displayed a pitiful field goal percentage of 37. Only one of their players shot over 50 percent from the hardwood. Windsor bettered the Warriors at the line, shooting 64 percent to their 59. A cakewalk was in the making when the scoreboard read Waterloo 13, Windsor 2 after only the first three minutes. The bncers shaved the margin to within 10 and kept it that way until the dying minutes of the opening half when &JW went on a 136 scoring’ run, taking advantage of

several turnovers. Waterloo had a healthy 55-38 lead. ’ Windsor’s performance after the break slowed down even more (from drowning in the quagmire), allowing the black anQ gpl,d, tQ widen the gap to f 82 p&r+ at’o*‘&int. Lancer coach Wayne Curtin el&ted to blame the surge on the officials and was consequently slapped with a technical. Midway through the second frame, th@play became even, but atrociously sloppy. In the final minutes, UW ran up the score until they hit the triple digits. Topping the score sheet were VanKoughnett (24) and Moore (22), while small forward John Hamilton and pivot Dave Rosebush drained 15 and 14 p+nts respectively. Veteran Jason Poag, looking like John Stockton, dished out five assists in the game. Lancers in the double digits were Chris Daly - 15, Everton Shakespeare - 13, Dennis Byrne - 12, and James Pepper - 10. Waterloo’s semi-final matchup with Carleton proved to be a sloppy affair as both teams nailed only 40 percent of their shots; the rest was mortar. The factor in this game which relegated the Ravens to the consolation game was turnovers. Carleton gave up the ball 23 times compared to tie 14 TO’s in the Warriors’ well controlled game. Also, another explanation in the loss was the Ravens’ inability to stop VanKoughnett’s bucketfest from 18 feet out. He potted 10 of his 18 points from just inside the perimeter, and went 7-for-10 on field goals, plus he snagged eight rebounds. Hamilton (10 points), Cam Thomas (nine points), and Rosebush (eight points) supplied th& rest of the signifigant

the Western Invitational Track and Field Meet, the opener for the 199O91 season. The nationals will be held in Windsor, March b-9. Kirkham placed second in the invitation 600m, crossing the line in 1:21.54 behind Mark Detaillear of Michigan. His time places him in the top spot of the OUAA rankings for December. The CIAU standard for the 600m is 1:21.54. Kirkham came from fourth tti second place in the last 30 metres of the race. In the 4x400m relay, he ran anchbr and his 49.3 relay

leg was the fastest of the four Waterloo runners. ‘This is Pat’s first race in two years after recovery from an injury in 1989,” said Waterloo head coach Brent McFarlane. “His (individual) race was excellent. It was exciting and a team booster for everyone. His performance atid effort was an example and primed our 4x400m relay team to go for the CIAU standard as well.” UW athletes prQduced 15 personal bests, a UW record in the men’s 4x400 relay team (3:25), and the men’s

4x200 relay team just missed the CIAU standard. High jumper Rich Koomans placed second ahead of teammates Karl Zartek (3rd) and Chris Chapman (4th). Jane Taite ran personal bests iri the 60m hurdles (942,4th) and the 6Om (8.26, 6th). Brent Forrest was 3rd in the 60m hurdles with a personal best of 8.97. The men’s 4x200m relay team of Rob Meikle, Simon Foote, Paul Meikle, and Steve Walker placed fourth in 134.40 missing the CIAU standard by half a second.

Imprintsports I guess you could call it a late Christmas gift. The 1490-91 Waterloo Warriors basketball team marched down to Windsor on December 29 to participate in the Can-Am Toumament at St. Denis Centre and returned home the next evening with the tourney crown. After a slow and bumpy start to their pre-season schedule, the Warriors have improved and developed into a strong contender for league play. A silver medal at the Winnipeg Invitational, a thrashing of York at home, and this latest achievement have improved Waterloo’s exhibition record to 8-6. The Warriors are 6-l in their last seven outings. ‘This is the first of two tournaments for us entering the new year, and winning this one is a great primer for the second,” said Warrior head coach Don McCrae. (The second tournament to which he was referring is the Dalhousie Tournament which takes place this weekend, January 4-6, in Halifax; Nova cotia.) And the Warriors didn’t just tiptoe out of the Windsor gym with the tournament‘ hardware. They put forth their highest oint output in almost two years wi t/i a 101-74 garrotting of the host squad in the championship game. Waterloo advanced to the finals after a 67-53 victory over the Carleton Ravens, while Windsor edged Chicago Division III 89-78 in the other semi-final matchup. In the consolation game, Carleton defeated

scoring punch. Carleton’s scoring attack was well rounded with five players collecting seven points apiece and another three players each with six. The reb&$d$ng numbers were quite close 323l,%ith Waterloo having the slight edge. It was obvious from the individual stats sheets that the person doing the Warriors’ stats had no idea what an ass& was. They were credited with only three. Veteran pivot Dave Rosebush laid up the Warriors’ first three baskets and added a fourth before the game was even five minutes old. He would have sped on further, but some unfortunate personals, left him in foul trouble and he had no choice but to sit on the sideline. Moments later, VanKoughnett turned a steal into a slam dunk, which delighted the sparse crowd. Carleton’s transition game was poor, allowing Moore to intercept a pass and take it down court to test for stress fractures in the rim. In the back court, they spread the defence to the perimeter but it was to no avail. The Warriors were almost doubling the team from the nation’s capital at the half, 37-20. The Ravens pulled to within nine with 11 minutes left. But that would be as close as they would get, as Waterloo pulled ahead on back-toback treys from Poag and / VanKoughnett, to eventually win, 67-53. After the Dalhousie Tournament this weekend, the Warriors return home to begin the regular season with a weekend double header against Lakehead on Friday, January 11 and Saturday, January 12. Both games begin at 8 pm here at the PAC.

“This first competition of the year was an outstanding team effort,” said McFarlane. “If events progress as planned, UW should qualify 12 athletes to the CIAU championships. Several of our top runners are on coop workterms and have not run for our team yet. It is a very exciting team and the year looks to be off to a great start. Our coaching staff (including assistant coaches Jeff Anderson, Dave Rombough, and Tim Mussar) has worked hard and it is starting to pay Off .”

Ice Warriors take extended Xmas break Warrior Hockey by Pad Dcme Imprint sports

The hockey Warriors, riding high on their undefeated league record, looked to post a strong result in the Diachem Tournament, which took place at the University of Manitoba December 28-30. In fact, the Warriors had posted their first victory of the tournament on November 22 against York, when they scored a 5-3 win over the Yeomen in Mel Lastmanville. Though the game was officially a in league game, it was agreed advance that its result would count toward the tournament* It was thus a shock and a disappointment thatthe Warriors, who had risen to a sixth-place national ranking. failed to win a single game in Manitoba, and finished fourth of four

teams, dead last; in the toutiment. The Warriors first game in Manitoba was against the hometown Bisons, where they earned their only point of the weekend. Over 80 minutes in penalties were handed out during the course of the scrappy game, which ended in a 4-4 deadlock. A shaky first few moments, left the Warriors behind. 1-O after only 32 seconds had elapsed, but the Warriors settled down, and the first interm&sion came, and went, with Manitoba up by the lone tally. Two quick goals in the second, at 12:49 and 14:37, by John Williams and Jim David respectively, put the Warriors ahead. The lead didn’t last until the end of the period though, as a Bison goal with 32 seconds left in the second knotted the score at 2-2, heading into the third. During the final period, Waterloo and Manitoba traded goals twice, with Craig Shaw and Steve Schaefer getting the Warrior goals.

TORONTO-BAtVIEW

The last Bison goal, to tie ‘the score at 44 came with under two minutes nmaining in the game. The fiveminute overtime period was scoreless. After the early goal, Warrior netminder Steve Udvari settled down, to turn aside 31 of the 35 shots he faced, including five in the overtime period, when he saved the Warriors bacon. The Warriors, meanwhile, could only muster 24 shots on net, and only one during the OT. The next day, the Warriors faced off against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, who were ranked eigth in the nation coming into the tournament. For the second straight game, the Warriors were solidly out shot, by a 33-24 margin, and consequently lost 4-1. After a scoreless first, UBC got on the scoresheet in the second, notching a goal on a Warrior giveaway at 2:33. Less than five minutes later, at 7~16, Mike MacKay evened the score. The deadlock lasted 58 seconds, as the Thunderbirds went up for good at 8:14. A powerplay goal, while UW got caught making a line change, put the T-Birds up 3-1 at the second hot chocolate break. The Warriors could not cut into the margin during the third period, and UBC put the game on ice at 17:37. Solid Warrior ‘tending, this time from James Organ was once again foiled by a porousUW defence which allowed tdo many shots on net.

Nody, match-ups swing in favour of the Warrio= excellent backstop trio of Udvari, Organ, and McCue. On this morning, however, stellar York goaltending was the difference, as Yeomen third-stringer Terry Sawdon stopped 34 of 38 Warrior shots on net. York jumped put to a 2-O lead in the first period of the slow, listless game. York pushed the margin to 3-O at the 2:12 mark of the second period. Darren Snyder got the Warriors on the scaresheet at 4:ZO. However, two York goals at 16:36,and 1756, staked the Yeomen to a huge 5-I lead. Dave Lorentz cut the lead to three goals quickly, at 18: 10. That was all for the scoring though, as Sawdon shut the Warriors out during the third period, despite being peppered with 15 shots in the stanza. Hopefully, the ice Warrior& can heat up again before they defend their championship at this weekend’s Duracell Tournam ent in Toronto.

Basketball

by Paul Done and Rich Nichol Imprint spmts

The Athena Bask&ball team rolleg into Ryerson for a threeday toumament Dec. 28-30. Waterloo, after an opening round victory over the Brandon lady hoopsters, lost consecutive games to Acadia and Guelph by a total of 12 points, to finish the weekend with a record of 1-2. UWs near-success was spearheaded by the defensive wizardry of team captain Brenda Kraemer, who scored a total of 29 points during the three games, making the tournament all-star team in the process. Team pivot LRah Ann Erickson (6’0”) paced the offence with 43 points in the three-games, and also ripped down 18 rebounds. In the opening round against Brandon, the Athenas turned in a strong first-half performance, building a lead as big as a dozen points, before having the margin shaved to 36-29 at the half. The Athenas were staked to the lead thanks to a d0zr.n first-half points from Erickson. In the second Lalf, Brandon stormed back, takirg an eight-point lead at 56-48 with Qur minutes left to go* The Athenas .nounted a scintillating rally, out=:oring Branddn 12-2 down the strztch, with tickson and Kraemer chipping in four apiece during the rally to pull one out of the fire. Final score 60-58 Athenas. Erickson finished with 20 points includhg a perfect 8-for-8 from the field, while Kraemer and guard

Marion Fernandez chipped in 10 apiece. Sara Bradley and Kathy Wordham also chipped in to the wel-lbalanced attack with eight apiece. Next up for the Athenas were the Acadia Axewomen. The first half was closely played, ending in a 27-all deadlock. The second half saw Acadia inexorably build @cad, until the score stood at 51-40 with two minutes left. This time the Athena rally came up four points short, and they succumbed 51-47. Tina Murray paced Waterloo’s attack with 11 points, Erickson and Kraemer scored nine apiece, while Fernandez and Bradley spilt a dozen. The Athenas came out very flat to start out against CIWIAA West rival Guelph dutig Sunday’s game. Guelph sprinted out to a 23-11 halftime lead. Waterloo, after what must have been a very inspiring half-time “chat” from head coach Denise Dignard, fought back to cut the margin to a slim two points, at 40-38 with about five minutes left to play. They ran out of steam down the stretch, though, and eventually lost by a 53-45 margin. For the second time in three games, Erickson led the Athenas’ scoring parade, this time with 14 points. Bradley and Kraemer scored 9 each, while Murray scored seven points, three on the Athenas’ lone trifecta attempt of the weekend. The Athenas return to league play this Saturday, January 5 when they pIay host to Western for a 2 pm game at the PAC. This will be the team’s home opener of the season. The Athenas split their first two league games on the road before the . Christmas Exams.

Science News

Tractor pulls - events in which supercharged tractors pull weights across an arena - are a prairie tradition, but these events and-their urban equivalents, monster truck contests, could be dangerous to spectators because they generate .high carbon monoxide levels, says a recently published study by the City of Winnipeg Health Department. Dr. Douglas Luckhurst, deputy medical officer of health, and Garry Soikoski, director of the Environmental Health Division monitored the carbon monoxide (CO) levels at two tractor pulls and found a build up of CO far in excess of the guideline standard of 33 parts per million (ppm) for one hour’s exposure and 18 ppm for eight hours’. As a result, indoor tractor pulls have been banned in Winnipeg since November 1988. A few years ago, studies showed that Zambonis - the machines that resurface the ice on rinks - could cause high carbon monoxide levels in arenas, especially if the units were poorly maintained. Consequently, Winnipeg converted its Zambonis to propane gas and began a regular maintenance program. Solkoski says the most recent study began after an ad appeared in a Winnipeg newspaper in February, 1988, advertising a tractor pull in the Winnipeg Arena, home of the NHL Jets. ‘?t was simply something we thought we should be looking into in terms of air quality.” He says they visited the arena before the event and “monitored CO levels during the preparation of the

track surface.“Using a Gastech Co-82 carbon monoxide monitor, readings were then taken every half-hour during the event at 25 locations throtigh out the seatine area of the arena. The pulls used a truck or other unit modified to look like a tractor, with large rear wheels and smaller front ones. Powered with four supercharged car engines ;M even a’ircraft turbines, the ‘tractors’ pulled a 40 to 50 tonne sled along a dirt surface for about 75 metres. The show had 25 events over more than two hours. “The results, in a nutshell, were terrible,” says Solkoski. “I didn’t really believe that the results were that high. My initial reaction was to test and recalibrate the equipment.” But the gas monitors were working perfectly, and showed that at the start of the event the CO level was 68 ppm and at the height of the races 262 PPm*

I

The health department met with the management of the arena to discuss changes. “But the building was designed as a hockey arena and its air makeup system and mechanical system were designed for that use,” Solkoski says. “lJnfortunately, the (tractor pull) type of event . . . generates tremendous amounts of CO and a Mrhobe range of combustion by-products, We’re dealing with highly modified engines burning all kinds of products and exotic fuel mixtures.” When there was a second tractor pull, nine months later in November 1988, the ventilation system was working at full capacity, louvers on the roof were open and so were the doors. “We hoped that simple convection would help pull the CO out,” solkoski says. But it didn’t help. In fact the results were worse.

office. The door’s

locked. I’m opening a line to somewhere in West Germany, the home of Sisters Of Mercy bassist Tony James. I’m not getting through; a voice tells me again and again to . . . try again. I do. It’s no use. What is happening in West Germany? fs Helmut Kohl with his new found power running rampant, slithering a black motorcade through the sinews of the city, dispatching semi-automatic henchmen left and right?

AmImy Sis?edskeeper? and WEA Records Canada has been in touch with their European affiliate. I’m told something is indeed afoot in W. Germany: Tony James is renovating his house, hence the disconnected phone. The Sisters Of Mercy are, as they put it, “returning from a hugely successful three year absence.” More specifically, Andrew Eldritch is back After the secrecy-shrouded dxilc of “soulmate” Paticid Morrison b&ck in Jan. 90, word spread that Andy was gathering forces around him again. The likes 6f Gary Marx, Ben Gunn and Wayne Hussey are long forgotten. In come bassist James, Billy Idol’s Generation X co-hort and Sigue Sigue Sputnik mastermind, Andreas Bruhn, guitar enigma, and then there’s Tim Bricheno, former All About Eve guitarist. Rounding out the

You know, some people told us that they’d make it through the sixty minutes of Diamond M&e and congratulate themselves and say, whew, I made it.

And as far as psychedelic goes, all that means is the kind of stuff that you listen to while you smoke up.

studio, including “Galveston,” you know, ones that seem to fit into our live show so well, but when we played them back they just sounded so corny and contrived that we didn’t bother JO try again. It was kind of disappointing because they’re so much fun to play in concert. Imp: Aw~vou stilldoingsornr work with Crcrs h I-+g:as.y GK: Yes, I still get together with Michelle McAdorey a lot.

Basically, ‘More” is ‘mis Corrosion” pt. 2 and it obviously lends itself to what Jims does y’know which is that latter-day Phil Spector thing. There’s no getting away from it - it’s a very Steinman thing, and it’d be silly to ignore that. That was the last thing to be done on the album.

& Love For All is the difficult third album by Stephen Duffy’s Lilac Time. This slick work runs counter to the back to basics format of the earlier albums; namely the sel&titIed first album and Paradise Cirrus. Much of the albums polished elements stem from the production work of Andy Partridge (of XTC fame). Unfortunately this offering is so refined that it loses all of the campy aspects of the band. With the original Lilac Time release Stephen Duffy went to the absolute musical extreme away from the dance idol/Duranie that was Stephen ‘Tin Ti.n”DufQ. In fact there was some damn fine washboard playing on that record. It is rare that one can appreciate the musical musings of a well played washboard. Like Zamfir and fine wine, washboard playing ages gracefully and is a beauty to behold.

LUKE 24: 1-7 The lyrical content of this album is one of ihe few continuities from the band’s past work The songs are all sugar-shun and velvety as they speak

of universal love and peace. Tl& record should come with a bagful of crayola markers in order to graffiti the entire world in resplendent colours. ‘7 Went to the Dance” evokes visions of velvet pants,satinshirts and earth shoe. A verit.abIe Iate sixties fashion show. “And For Eove and Love For AH”, the title track, is just summery enough to melt those mid-winter blues. Despite the glossy production* work and the unfortunate lack of any washboarding whatsoever, h. Love For All is a fine way to “get happy” without the influence of naughty chemicals. Just as winter settles in, let Stephen Duff-y’s lyrics thaw out your frozen carcass and taken you to a land where the ethics of romance, idealism and peace are more than accepted they are held sacred.

Gawd - another “tribute album” honouring a forgotten act. This time it’s Roky Eriksqn, who led the psychedelic 13th Floor Elevators back in the Wk, and has been in and out of mental institutions ever since. Doesn’t sound too promising I know. But su risingly, where Ihe Pyramid A4-s 7t e Eye is unique from most albums of its ilk~ it’s actually pretty good. One of the big reasons for this is the quality of the bands. REM, Julian Cope, the Butthole Surfers, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Poi Dog Pondering T-Bone Burnett . ..maybethisisn’tan “all-star” aIbum, but it comes closer than most. REM turn in a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek “I Walked with a Zombie.” Another highlight is the Buttholes’ ‘Xarthquake.”

Carl McCoy, the lead singer for the Fields of the Nephilim, once said he never wanted to Imow what the bad would be doing next. The fear of repetition would inject something

There’s also a pleasing eclecticism of styles here. I%imal Scream turn “Slip Inside This House” into a Manchester-influenced trippy dance groove. Poi Dog Pondering treat “I had to Tell You” to their Hawaiiantinged folk. Chris Thomas’ rendition of “Leave Your Body Behind” is a funky Prince soundalike. Even the unknowns (to me, anyway) that turn up on the album provide some great stuff. Most notable is the Judybats’ retro-sounding “She Lives in a Time of Her Own.” But Sister Double Happiness and Vibrating Egg also deliver worthwhile cuts. Besides the strength of the bands, tho’, what makes Pyramid--Eye work is the songs. They are all surprisingly good. Erikson was seemingly as adept at writing raveups (‘Bermuda,” “Two-Headed Dw” “Don’t Slander Me”) as heartbreaking ballads (‘You Don’t Love Me Yet,” “I Had to Tell You,” “Nothing in Return’?. Besides getting together a batch of decent bands, the album reintroduces a whole slew o’ great songs to the

world. Oh, and ZZ Top’s (yes, that’s right, ZZ Top’s) version of “Reverberation” kicks he shit out o’ the Mary Chain’s. inherently different into each new album. This outlook has its good and bad aspects. Repetition is removed, and therefore the Nephilim keep a fresh edge to their music. Unfortunately it also means we may never see an album like EZizium again. The production and feel of Elizium is flawless. Each song leads into the next without a break The lyrid ideas are presented over the entire album, not confined to single songs. Certain musical textures are used throughout, not enough to be repetitive, just enough to give this album the feel that it is a whole, not a collection of tracks. Production and polish are one ““‘W Elirium%stand out. Still steeped in the shadowy guitar of their last albums, Elizium adds soaring arrangements and just a little more harmony. The songs continually have pieces of music floating in and out, giving an overall ethereal feel to the album. Although it is hard to pick favorites, the singles “For Her Eight” ahd “Summerland (what dreams may come)” stand out, and “At the Gates Of Silent Memory’%, in my opinion, the showpiece of the album. So what makes this album intrhsically different from their last two? McCoy’s voice. Until now, most of the Nephilim’s have had McCoy singing “UC

in a very guttural voice, which several times has crossed the line from atmospheric into annoying. On this album he uses his voice excellently, employing his guttural tone to accentuate some lyrics and singing the rest in a deep dramatical tone. Elizium is a trip through the dark, barren landscapes ‘La;lof dream. Nightmares and the dreams of death from which you wiIl not wake up. In your dreams they ‘are waiting for you, they “want to meet you, *t to play with you, and )Lou can’t break free and you hear them call, they want to plague you and take you to the shame of your past”. Always beware of those places “where the Night’ has become Elizium for the sleepless souls”. You can be dead but still will dream. Fans of Gothic rock must have been ecstatic (though they would never show it) to hear that the Sisters of Mercy, the Mission and the Fields of @e Nephilirn were all releasing albums this fall. The Sisters album was a bit of a disappointment. The Mission’s release is a collection of bsides, and no one expects great th$gs from this. The Nephilim’s release, however, makes up for these drawbacks. With the Sistersbf Mercy moving out of Gothic rock, the throne has been taken by the Nephilim. May theyreign a long time.

“lk hitid impetus of The Go-Meens wlls a cross between the Monkees and Purti Smith. The Monkess were pop and bad poetics. Patti Smith poeticS and bad pop v . . whenever I think of the Munketi, it’s Q sunny muming, the bright& cohm, and David Jones’ eyes Their music is pe@&, a pe$kctas pup could ever be; ‘Lust Train to Clurksville’ has been written and we are left with our own imper$ction. ” - Robert Forster. When the Go-Betweens wrote, the muses, shamed, vowed never to write again. When they sang, angels tore their own vocal cords from their throats. And when the GoBetweens brokecup, the Earth was a darker place. It was fitting that the Go-Betweens broke up on New Years Eve, 1989 - on the cusp of a new decade - for in the eighties, the GoBetweens, despite labouring in anonymity, towered above their contemporaries, crafting pop music of ineffable beauty. From their first singles, released just before the turn of the decade, to their last W 16 Lovers’ Lane, released in 1988, Robert Forster and Grant Mchnnan - the Go-Between& songwriters - created and crafted songs which gave expression to love and romance in its sundry forms; songs which shone light into the dark comers of existence. A task of no small challenge then, to sift through six albums and numerous singles worth of classic pop music, and gather the best onto this compilation. Wisely, the task

was left to Forster and McLennan themselves; annotating the selections with recollections - from the absurd to the heart-breakingly poignant. The 22 tracks presented on this compilation (six less than the UK LP version! more on that later), are split roughly equally between well-known chestnuts from their albums and more obscure gems; from the B-sides of singles, unreleased tracks, or from radio sessions. Likewise, the tracks are equally split between Grant Mcknnan’s open-hearted earnestness, and Forster’s darker, elliptical manner. ough, of the tracks selected from ur - over one-third - are from erhaps their least-acclaimed release, f alluluh, while the finest half of their Lp oeuvre, Before Hollywood, Spring Hii1 Fair, and 7 Libq Belle are represented by one or two ; tracks each. When the topic is compilation Lh, arguments can rage for days over specific track selection - and this one is no different. Nonetheless, the only serious qualm among the album tracks is the inclusion of ‘%ight Here,” which I always considered to be one of the Go-Betweens few disposable moments. The tracks culled from more obscure locations confirm the consistency and quality of the Go-Betweens’ soneting - there’s nary a throw-away in the lot (eticept for the C’n’W pastiche of “Don’t Call Me Gone”). It seems criminal that treasures as sublime as “WhenPeople are Dead”and “This Girl, Black Girl,” might have remained forgotten, buried in the dusty record stacks of collectors. 1978-1990 tracks the Go-Betweens progression from the loose, shambly agglomeration of their early singles like “People Say” and “World Weary” to the more refined, yet no less passionate, later recordings from 16 Lover> Lane+ The Go-Betweens could, on the one hand, breathe life and beauty into something as bare and austere as ‘Dusty in Here,” and, on the other, record music as full and lush as “Bachelor Kisses” without it becoming saccharine.

Strangely, Polygram exclusion!

Highlights? “Dusty in Here” - which Grant describes thus “This songs is about my father who died when I was four.““SecondHand Furniture” - based upon a dream Grant had of a man walking past a second. hand store and seeing the possessions he once shared with his ex-wife. ‘When People are Dead” - adapted by Robert from a poem by Marion Stout; and a soaring Go-Betweens moment. As great as this compilation is, it wouId have been even better had Polygram released the 2%track British LP version - the six missing tracks certainly add to the package. In particular, ‘The Sound of Rain,” a lovely unreleased song from the Late ’70s is a fine littie treasure that has been unearthed.

by Peter Brown hnprint staff Before I slag this album, I must concede that Outskirts and Dihmond Mine are the hardest of acts to follow. Blue Rodeo’s first two albums made it clear that they are the best band in Canada without question. That being said, it is still unclear why Greg Keelor and Jim Cuddy chose to steer the band so directly into the pop music mainstream. Those two LPs had brought the band great fame with a unique formula of three-minute pop songs mixed with lengthy swirling sonic excursions. This combination guaranteed them AM radio play and heavy video rotation, along with giving their above-15 fans something to listen to at concerts.

But Casino is unchara&eristically incon@tent and unremarkable. Of thi! ten tracks, four or f!iyq -are .interesting and catchy, and the rest dross. I find myself listening to side one over md over, as the first three songs are as good as :! any that Blue Rodeo has recorded: ‘Til I Am Myself -Again”, “What Am I Doing Herel”,’ and “5 am (A Love Song)‘: All three feature the usual Rodeo theme of the quiet desperation of lost identity and love. The first song is the current single frdm the album, woefully sung by Cuddy: “the half-finished bottles of inspiration lie like ghosts in my room.” “What Am I Doing Here?” only has about eight different lines of lyrics, but is still such a great expression of futility and frustration that it doesn’t need any more. “5 am”, like “Love and Understanding” from Diamond Mine, captures on vinyl the Rodeo live sound superbly. “Last Laugh” and “After the Rain” are two more pretty good songs, but after that, the quality just takes a nose dive. ‘Trust Yourself”, “Two Tongues”, and ‘Time” are just tiresome and derivative dried husks of the formerly warm and breathing Rodeo sound. And “You’re Everywhere” isn’t even a song. It’s just an excuse to push the album over the 35minute plateau.

Lost Cuba: A Journey

Timerman, translated Tulbot Knopf;

by Tub)?

125 pages

by John Mason [mprint’staff Not many pages into Jacob0 rimerman’s, just released, blistering :ondemnation of Fidel Castro’s tegime in ,Cuba, I thought of what Hubert Camus once wrote: ‘I like men who take sides more than literatures hat do.” True, as blistering condemnations 50, Timerman’s is certainly effective, quickly and mercilessly sketching a mrtrait of a society in which secrecy shrouds all opinion and in which fear s a steady and forced diet fed to the 3eople. And no one is about to argue that Castro, in liberating Cuba from the decadent dictatbrship of Fulgencio Sal-&a in 1959, merely gave otalitarianism a *new face, repIacing

the genteel atropical whites with revolutionary gu&rilla fatigues. The fact remains that Timerman’s account of his visit to the Caribbean island during the summer of 1987 is written with a political agenda in mind, although he claims he has always felt “an affirmative ambivalence” for the Cuban revolution. Such a bent is hardly surprising from a writer (R&m W~Zlwut’ il Name. Celi Without a Number) who was imprisoned in the seventies under the vile Argentinian regime during which thousands of people “disappeared.*’ The book, which only occasionally has the hectoring tone of a tirade (motivated, one suspects, by Timerman’s rage over his own experience of incarceration), lacks an element of discovery about the island; instead, there is more often a sense of confirming Timerman’s suspicions. Readers familiar with his previous works, Prisoner Without a Name, CelI Without a Number and Chile: &arti in the South, will likely be disappointed at fiist in this most recent book but, hold on, it is only 125 pages long and

Arts/Books does provide a penetrating portrait of one of the world’s last Communist/ Marxist states. Cuba continues to be of vital political interest - an island in the mainstream of change. Timerman proposes that Cuba can never free itself from its cruel constrictions lack of freedom of speech and thought, constant surveillance, cultural and economic anemia - until Castro (El Commandante) expires. The island has subsisted on very little since El Commandante brought the revolution to the people, and even with increasingly faltering support from a beleaguered Soviet Union it is reasonable to think that Cubans, with so much prior practice, can tighten their belts just that much further. But the most useful ideas to emerge from Cuba: A Journey can be found in Timerman’s canny portrait of Castro, written without an interview. Castro is a man mythicized, mostly through his own design, and his megalomania turned into a romantic trait Castro holds people in thrall. As Timerman points out, not >without scorn. Castro has seduced his good friend Gabriel Garcia Marquez with his prowess: El Commandante’s need for little sleep, his voracious <appetite for reading documents of all matter and manner, his tireless speechifying his ability to predict the future.

El Commandante is on the same clock as Stalin was, sleeping little yet knowing when to rest. El Commandante is also seen as the Great Progenitor. As one young Cuban woman put it, “What Cuban woman would take the pill when going to bed with Fidel?” His power is more an aphrodisiac than an opiate for the masses. Castro, like most dictators, projectsan aura of the sexual athlete - a superman whose needs surpass those of mere

Total Recall, 48 pages, $16.99

myL. Manion mprht staff After the huge upswell in REM’s aopularity following the Gmn LP ind tour, I feel somewhat confident hat reviewing a book like this one sn’t complete& an exercise in selfndulgence. There are probably a. whole slew of hardcore REM fanatics jut there who will be very interested n the contents of this little booklet. A Few Chords and a Cloud of Llust is lot a biography or critical history of IEM. As the unnamed authors state n the intro, “We come not to praise m but to catalogue them!” What rou get, then, is quite simply the lefinitive REM discography. It’s all luly notarized and filed here: official

II’s, 12” singles and 45s, promotional EPs and flexi-discs, fan club 45s, and all manner of bootleg releases. There’s also an extensive list of all four REM members’ solo work, and an exhaustive list of all known REM gigs from the time of the band’s inception in 1980. To the insanely committed fan, this book is invaluable, If you want to know exactly what’s missing from your collection, this is your chance to find out. (For example, who would have thought that those tricky devils would sneak out rare covers like “Academy Fight Song” on fan clubonly 45s?) Especially useful and entrancing is the list of bootleg LPs, complete with track listings and covers. Which brings us to an interesting point With regards to bootlegs, the anonymous authors offer the usual disclaimer of projects like this one: “PIease note that we are unable, under any circumstances, to provide details of where any bootleg records, CDs or tapes may be bought, sold or exchanged and whilst we have listed

-

Brazzaville

these releases, we do not necessarily condone these s recordings.” However, the “reviews” (a word or two on sound quality) of the bootlegs are almost uniformly positive. In fact, there’s not one that’s denoted “poor.” There’s a mupIebootleg albums listed that I’ve heard, and &hich T know to be poor in sound quality. In the “comments” section, no mention is made of the sound of these LPs. Hmmmm. Anyway, there’s also a pretty ridiculous essay entitled “Looking for Clues in the Cover Art of REM” which explains the “symbolism” of each official album cover. (Is it just me, or does the phrase “get a life” pop into your head as well?) More entertaining is the slew of really cool photographssome of ‘em pretty rare onesstrewn throughout the book. Well, I wouldn’t feel right about finishing this review without griping about the price of this little item. I mean, seventeen bucks for 48 pageseven high quality pagesis no less exorbitant than the prices of the bootleg LPs listed therein. Oh well, anyone who’s gonna buy this thing in the first place wiIl do so regardless of the price, I guess.

JOHN 14: t-4

William Boyd opens his latest novel, a finalist for the 1990 Sunday fipreis Literary Award, Brazzaville Beach with the Socratic maxim: “The unexamined life is not worth living.” To ensure we have not missed the point of the book, he uses it again in the last line. No matter. Sandwiched between this heavy-handed device is a superb novel. The life examined in Brazzaville Beach is that of Hope Clearwater. The young British ethologist is holed up in a beach house on the Atlantic coast of Africa, licking her wounds and reflecting upon two major personal catastrophes. From her resting place, she teas intertwining stories of how too much knowledge wreaked havoc on her life. In Britain, she &es a brilIiant mathematician, John Clearwater, who “was trying to write a simple algorithm that would reproduce the magical, infinite variety of the natural world.” John goes mad in his pursuit of ambitious theorems, and the

tactile sense of Havana, just not enough detail. The city’s decay from its colonial splendor can serve as a metaphor for the regime itself. The housing shortage and overcrowding has led to the erection of government-run “love hotels” where couples go to have the privacy they can not find in a room divided by al sheet. The majority of people who are not sent to Castro’s jails otherwise seem to live in them.

marriage dissolves. l-lope retreats to Africa to study the behavior of chimpanzees under Dr. Eugene Mallabar, a scientist-tumedcelebrity through his best-selling book 7;he PtJtice@l mrnate. She finds the chimps anything but peaceful, and witnesses bloody battles between warring ape factions. Hope’s discovery threatens to overturn all of Mallabar’s work, and the esteemed primatologist tries to suppress her findings - first by burning her hut and all her research papers in it, and later by assaulting her. After narrowly escaping from Malhbar’s rage, Hope is kidnapped by African guerriIla fighters and staggers through a series of midadventures before arriving at the sanctuary of the beach house to reconstruyzt her story. Boyd unravels , this narrative, interrupting the plot with brief explosions on arcane subjects such as voIleybalI rules, mathematicaI theorems and the seven types of catastrophe. The characters act out the scientific ideas: like a “ragged and untidy” dissipative system where “the friction grips, and then suddenly eases, only to grip again/ their lives become unstuck. Theknowledgethat was supposed to enlighten them becomes a destructive force. ‘The pursuit of knowledge is the road to hell,“Hope’s guerrilla captor tells her.

l3ut Boyd is a good storytelIer. Despite- his dips into p&modernist mechanisms, the.strengths of BrazzaviIle Beach are old-fashioned: a well-told narrative and engrossing characters. With Hope Clearwater, Soyd seems to have easily met the immense challenge of creating a credibIe female voice. Her husband John is a fascinating portrayal of warped, unreachable genius and her colIeagws at the chimp research station are eccentric and familiar at the same time.

What ought I to do? Try not to hurt anyone. What may I hope for? For the best (but it won’t make any difference}.” These are the cowering uncertain answers of a man who examined his life too much. But the mere attempt to answer the questions shows, like the novel itself, a resolute if fragile belief in the worth of human self-examination. . .
