However, GLLDW representative Lindsay Patten said that there simply wasn’t enough information available to decide-whether or not WLUSU atied in a homophobic fashion.

As further justification of the decision to suspend production, Lewis said that the Board of Directors felt that the article violated that code. Lewis went on to claim that the Paper “on the whole, puts the_ image of the school at threat.” Further, he felt that the staff of the paper did not have the “best interests of the student body” in their minds, tid that they put their own interests first The editors of the paper, however,. felt that they were completely’ jusrunning the extract as it was tifi~il-l informational, and was intended to contextualize the article. There was an informal meeting on the night that the paper was being prm and at that time there was a consensus among cbrd staff that the controversial text should run. Staff member of ‘Z’%e cord and members of the Stud&t Publications’ Board of Directors, under whose auspices Z%e cord is produced, expressed grave dissatisfaction with the way that the incident was handled by WLWSU.

Once again, readers compIa&ed about this article, calling it racist and offensive because it perpetuated racial stereotypes, and there were immediate calls for Stathis’ impeachment. A petition signed by over 1,000 students was collected in two days, and the original cartoon was brought UP again by the Caribbean Students Association and the Af+ican Students Association as corroborative evidence of Stathis’ insensitivity to the issue of race. It will be decided shortly if Slathis will be allowed to remain editor until his contract expires on April 3,1991. -Like Imprint, Excalibur is an autonomous corporation which is recognized by the York Student Union as the official student newspaper, and thus receives some funding from student fees. only the &&XV’s 10 to 1 z-member Board of Publications, a body like hprht’s Board of Directors, can demand the editor’s resignation.

Vision Awareness by Cheryl Fduopp, Am curie.

Week ‘91

Christina and Debra

“Saving the Eyes of the World” is the theme of this year’s national Vision Awareness Week (VAW) which is run annually by tie Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO). This year VAW will run March 3-9 with the primary goals of promoting better vision care in health care, promoting optometry’s role as primary eye care specialists, and promoting the importance of proper eye protection in general. This is the second annual year of involvement for the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo and its students. They have been actively preparing for the weeklong run of events and many students are getting involved.

Let’s briefly examine the coverage of the Gulf War in mainstream media; gespite huge numbers of reporters, massive amounts of equipment, and large capital ou&ys’televisionand commercial newspapers managed to do little more than act as conduits for the latest pieces of propaganda issued from Ameriean, whoops, Coalition, infomtion officers. The least fettered coverage came from the most discredited source - journalists in Iraq, who had fai fewer restrictions placed upon them than ever the ones in Saudi Arabia did. Stories which emerged from the front - of American poo1 reporters informing on unauthorized foreign journalists in the battle zone, iin order to maintain their “scoop” (no matter how adulterated) --testify to the way in which journalism (and journalists) loses iq@grity when it mixes with money and status. It was evidentlv more important to the pool reporters to mai&in their &anding than to provide the public with the best possible I would posit that the articles published in student presses thToughout the world were more valuable than, the articles published in our mainstream media precisely kause they were unp*ofessional. In being so, they managed to tap directly into the overwhelming grief, anger, and indignation which many of conscience felt during the execution of Let’s deal with a specific from the War. When the first Coalition Prisoners of War were paraded on Iraqi televigion, their bruised visages appeared on the front pages of profaional newspapers the next day, with headlines of varying shrillness and inaccuracy (where have we heard those terms before?). ,My personal favorite was “I)ASTA.RDS,“from some worthless British tabloid. All the headlines implied that the POWs had been brutalised while in captivity. Now, as they are being released, stories appear in the Same newspapers which contain statements there was no indication the . Americans . . . were tortured or brutalised 1 while in captivity” or “Jeffrey Zaun, -whose face appeared cut and swollen on television, probably suffered the injuries when he was shot down and ejected from his plane.“ Eren in this limited context, it should be evident that the word that best describes the aura of esteem which surrounds our mainstream media is “myth.” They engage in image-making as surely as the public relations lackeys and spin doctors who create most of “their stories. in closing, I assert that there is no press so free, so democratic, so accessible to all, as the student press. This free forum is a necessary part of any institution where learning and free debate occur. I+x all its inaccuracies and flaws, it must be protected and guarded against threat,

Nathan Ng You’ve got to be kidding. Is the Council of Ontario Universities really calling for a tuition hike of 40 per cent? A lot of university students have a tough time as it is covering all of their postsecondary &t&on c&s. Our education is on the skids and people are lo+ ing their jobs everywhere; how can. anyone think that mak& it harder for people in the lower income brackets to get into university is going to help the situation? Sorry, but I don’t buy that guff about it being necessary to shell out an extra couple of hundred bucks to pay off increasing costs incurred by the university administrations. You see, if this sort of increase continues to happen year after year, many people aren’t even going to be able to get their education at university. Accessibility is going to be limited to the elitist few who can pay - and shutout minorities may very well become the majority of people in a few years’ time. Simply put, if universities don’t get larger funding from the government, and fast, our education is going to go down the tubes. Federal funding has got to keep pee with inflation, which of coune it hasn’t. This makes me feel angry. I want action!

2nd year HIstory


In recent years, the University of Waterloo has made Eat progress in accommodating the wide-ranging needs of its students. There are facilities for the handicapped, sufficient inexpensive eateries, health services, computer access, etc.; in short, the administration has taken pains to make student bfe uite ’ comfortable. One can get oneself a good tee r cheaply on campus, and almost every social or Political group is represented. Despite the care taken to organize all of these kilities, one rather fundamental social service the university lacks is an on-campus sleeping facility. Quite frankIy, there is no decent place at this school in which someone can curl up for a quality nap. Btmkg in mind that medical studies have in-ted that proper sleep is an important aspect of a healthy lifestyle, it seems a rather large oversight not to address this. The couches at the Campus Centre can be rather comfy, yet the crowded and noisy atmosphere is not conducive to real sleep. The carrels on the tenth floor of the Dana Porter Library are quiet, but Only a yoga contortionist is able to attain a genuine sleep. That is why I prom that, to fuIly encomp&s the needs 6f al&de&; the ad&n&-ation provide a separate, quarantined, campus nap room. Perhaps a go& lotion would be

We have all used meltemps in chemistry labs thbt are so temperamental that not 0nIy erroneous results occur but also severe fnqtration. In physics we are using masses and pan balances to find the mass of objects, definitely an up to date procedure (!?). In Earth Science people heave to share microscopes as there are not enough to go around. Now that we have established that there is a problem, we at the Science Society are offering you a solution. It’s called ,WATSJZF or Waterloo Science Endowment Fund. This fund is a voluntary contribution to help finance the increasing cost of our education. What we propose is a refundable contribution of $50 per science student per term. This amount will be put into an interest bearing ‘account. In the first year 50 per cent of the principle will be spent to effect an immediate change in the present state of affairs. In the following five years this amount wiU be reduced until the full amount of the principle remains. This leaves the interest to provide additional funding to increase the quality of your education. Many people complain that they can’t afford to pay the additional $50 per term. 1 stress it is completely refundable and really, can you affqrd not to give? The fund created will be administrated by a committee consisting of undergraduate students and faculty members with the students havingfinal say as to where the monies are to be spent. The equipment purchased wiII be for the use of undergraduates onIy and will be labelled as such. The next time you go to a lab I urge you to observe the equipment and decide what you would replace. I think you wiIl find that this fund is essentiaIto our continued education. -We have the facuky, let’s get the equipment.

He tenderly whispered things in my ear like, “Relax and enjoy it,“and “What a wildcat!” He assumed I would eventually succumb to my natural desires. I succumbed, but it was not to lust. I gave in to fear. I couldn’t even caII out. I was too ashamed to let anyone know. I should have known better than to take,him into my room. Others would think I lured’him there. Maybe even my boyfriend would condemn me.. . All these thoughts were in my mind as I struggled helplessly, sobbing and pleading, When my panic broke through his incensed state, he stopped and tied to cradle and comfort me, Iike I was a frightened child.

Hope for El, Salvador by Ic&rina



specialto Imprint

What do you really know about El Salvador? If you are like a lot of peaple, you know that it is a country in Central America and at war. However, not a lot of people understand why this war is occurring or even know who is fighting whom. What is the real situation in El Salvador? How do the people live? An organization called Esperarua (which means “hope” in Spanish) is trying to undo the confusion by establishing links between community organizations in Canada and El Salvador. There are two main ways that Esperanza establishes these iii. One is by ensuring a continuous flow of up-to-the-minute information between Canada and El Salvador. Esperanza has even provided fax machines in the main areas of conflict in El Salvador. The second way Esperanza establishes links - also the main focus of the organization - is by exchanging people. El Salvadoreans come to Canada and Canadians travel to El Salvador. This way we can understand the &ration of the Salvadorean people not only by reading about it or watching it on television, but by living it. A local Esperanza group has been established on campus. If you are interested in learning more about El Salvador, or even interested in going there, the next meeting wiIl be Thursday, March 14 at 530 pm in Campus Centre room 138A. Everyone is welcome.

UW gets biochemical research chair -.

from UW News

Bureau The NSElk University-industry chair for Moo-Young is “+ticularly welcome at this time for several reasons,” said Dr. Arthur Carty, dean of research “It should significantly enhance the scope of research activities in biochemical engineering, a priority area for the department and faculty. As well, it will facilitate development of interactive reseti techniques with industrial partners in the biotechnology field,” he said.

A research chair professorship in biochemical engineering is being created at the University of Waterloo to help in the improvement of existing bioprocesses and the development of new ones for industrial applications. The venture is a five-year, $1.36 million partnership between a federal granting agency - the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) - and a group of ten Canadian companies (ABI, Alfabval, Chembiomed, Esso, Pharma&, Rohm and Haas, Sheet SNC, Union Carbide, and Vetrepharm~.

An NSERC chair in microbial biotechnology is currently held by Dr. Owen Ward in biology. Since 1969, Moo-Young has played a key role in creating a world& biochemid engineering group at WV. The new chair will help to maintain the excellence of this group in the mu.ltid&iphnary field of biotechnology, pvhich is vital to the future wellbeing of industrialized societies. Moo-Young received a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from the University of London, a Master of science in chemical engineering from Toronto, and a RhD from London, followed by postdoctoral work at Edinburgh where he speciaLed in biochemical engineering.

The markets covered by the corporate sponsors of the chair include health care products, agro/food, chemicals/energy; and waste treatment and related equipment/ instrumentation. Another common interest in the program is the inherent personnel traking for potential employment by the companies, A spin-off benefit is the opportunity to develop strategic alliances between the group members and others for which the chair could act as a catalyst. For example, Dr. David Cox, vicepresident for Advanced Technologies at the Alberta Research Council in Fdmonton, believes the chair could generate collaborative ventures. These could involve the fermentation plants at his organization or at the Biotechnology Research Institttte of the National Research Council in Montreal that could assist Canadian exploitation of biotechnology for the production of commercial goods and services worldwide.

Dear Premier


I would like to express my disgust with your recent comments in the Toronto Sun In defending your government’s decision to break party policy and an election promise by increasing tuition fees by 8 per cent you stated that ‘There’s no free lunch. There never was a free lunch and there certainly isn’t a free lunch now.” me Ontario Rederation of Students has never asked for a free lunch. In f&c, during our recent present&ion to the standing committee on Finance and Fxonomics we stated “No one is asking for a free ride”. Our policy on who should pay for post secondary education is clearly laid out in our policy manual. The preamble states: ‘We do recognize the obligation of the individual to reimburse society for the benefits accorded by higher education It is our belief that the most equitable method for meeting such an obligation would be a reformed system of taxation, which would be borne by a student only after graduation and hence not pose an economic barrier to @qective low and middle income studenti.” This is the same principle that you yourself supported while a student leader working with the Ontario Union of Students and later as the leader of the opposition We have never advocated a freeze or &GMtion of tuition fees without alse advkting an increase in OUT taxes post-graduation, Your suggestioIl that students were ask@ for a free ride is offensive ar~J should be rw

Immqtse Journey. Water is the substance of life. Without it, life could not continue. Our dependence upon water is enormous, a dependence that cannot be ignored. What we do ignore, however, is our use and management of this precious resource. At any given moment, many water supplies worldwide are being contaminated, many people are using too mrich. Canadians are not exempt from this abuse; it’s a global problem. Although Canada appears to have an abundance of water, most of it flows north. Consequently, we ,can, will, and do have w&r shorkge problems too. The Region of Waterloo faces . water depletion problems now. part of the solution being seriously investigated and implemented in various parts of the world is total water _ reuse. Reuse could also becomeaviableoptionfortheR@on and its largest water user, the University of Waterloo. As Loren Eseley says, water is everywhere. The glObaI hydrOlO@c cycle is a continuaus flow Of water movingfromstatet0state(gas,liquid,. and solid), physical region to region. As the water is redistributed acr03s the earth, humans may .interrupt its pathbyusingit.Afterthewateris released into the environment it again enters the cycle to be redistributed. Thus, the way in which one community uses water affects the whole hydrologic cycle.

For example, most sewage treatment plants in the Waterloo Region dump their treated water into the Grand River. This pracke affects cities downstream. Brantfod has been forced to implenknt very thorough water treatment in order t0 use Grand River water. This type of water use is called %&ect reuse” We all indirectly reuse water every single day. Some cities are implementing “direct water reuse” as a water supply. In direct water reuse, the water from the sewage treatment lant is directly treated (instead oP -being dumped into a river and treated later as in indirect reuse.) Lately, a lot of attention has been &used on one method of direct reuse: r&imsdposable wuter - water that has already beenusedandistreatedtothepoint that it is ag& fit for consumption. ’ Various areas have, or have plans to produce and use reclaimed potable water.

One would thinka region such as ours, which receives ample precipitation and is surrounded by Great Lakes nearby, would not have a water problem However, for a number of reasons, we do.

The drhking water of the Regional Municipality of Waterloo cons*ts of 87 percent groundwater and 13 per cent surface water. The Region contains two or three aq&ers which overlay each other in various places and depths. Currently, each Of these aquifm is pumped foiits water. Despite the optimism concerning the groundwater source, no one actually knows hav large the aquifers are. Contributing to the general lack of howledge about regional groundwatersuppli~isuncertaintypertaining to tik location of water recharge areas.Rechargeareasareporo~~~ils that allow water to percolate to the aquifer. A local example of a recharge area is the Waterloo Moraine, located west of Waterlw and extending from St. Clements to New Dundee. _ Without adequate recharge, the water table of an aquifer will drop. Deirelopment from the city of Waterloo has paved and over various recharge areas.

A nearby example that was known as a recharge area, but developed anyway, lies west of Fischer-Hallman Road. Also critical to the groundwater supply is the amount and the time of year that precipitation occur These two factors influence the rate of water in6ltration During a summer drought, less precipitation occurs, and less water infiltrates the aquifer. At the same time, human demand for water increases. Because the capacity and volume of the groundater reserve is unknowq emergency conservation measures may not be severe enough,

two broader, ethical issuesremain and we may unknowingly deplete the groundwater supply. Furthermore, should the regional cbte change due to the greenhouse effect, precipitation patterns may be altered and significantly affect the amount of water entering the-aquifer. Despite the issues concerning groundwater reserves and recharge in the Waterloo Region, two broader, ethical issues remain One is the responsibility of one community to others on the watershed. It is imperative that each COXIUII~~~~ dismd its attitude of self-interest and partake in a -wider ecological perspectke. Kitchener-Waterloo, located well up on the Grand River,% no exception. The second ethical issue is the responsibility of each community to the long term, not just short term, avsGl&lity of water. The supply Of waterinthetegionhasanupperlimk The management and conservacon ofthisr esource are crucial to meet not only the needs of today, but also the needs of future generations.

Qe university is the single largest user of the Region’s water. Current technologies have proven that reclaiming water is feasible and with public education, is socially acceptable. So how abOut the universityasapilOtproject?Justthispastfall, chg wright, UW pr&dent, encouraged environmental studies to become involved in ‘WATGWN” projects that “will aliow the university to transform itself into a showcase campus of environmental responsibility.” Reclaiming water is not an unknown technology. Risk of chemical contamination at the university is low since there is no input of indus trial effluent. The set-up of the wakrpip@ system on and off campus allows for the addition of.“exIemal” water, should any problems arise. Universities are supposed to be arenas where we can open our minds to new ideas and pm&es. A university environment is an appropriate place to construct the first Canadian potable water reclamation site. Should UW and perhaps the City adopt a water reclamation program, some stress upon the water supplies will be alleviated. However, this is not seen as an opening dowway to prOmate further growth in the Region. Our water conservation efforts should be a reminder Of the problems that human overpopulation have imposed upon the environment, especially the water resources. The use of potable reclaimed water gives humans a chance to allevi& the strain ‘upon our precious, lifesustaining water resources.

The concern with PCB effects on wiIdIife is an important consideration.

Sbience Wouldyou drink a cup@1of PCB’S?? +cont’d. from page 14. the fish stocks of lakes and oceans. With that in mind, some discussion should be made concerning the relationship of PCBs and ecosystems themselves. A great deal of research I has been done which focused on using the Great Lakes ecosystem m the U.S. and Canada as a model to study PCB trends .and interactions. PCBs are prevalent in the Great Lakes because of the global use of them and other organochlorine. substances; their relatively lengthy biological half-lives; and the ubiquity of long range atmospheric transport of these su~ces. For example, one study claimed that 80 per cent of the PCBs found in Iake Michigan probably came from the atmosphere. This is a controversial point since some have questioned whether direct discharge of PCBs into the water has not supersaturated the Great Lakes with PCBs and, therefore created a source rather than a sink for the chemical. Monitoring programs since the early 1970s have suggested that PCB levels are decreasing in areas once considered “hot spots”, where the concentration of PCBs was quite high, increasing in areas where they were low, and remaining relatively constant in areas that had previously been described as low. But the trends are far more complex and can be obscured by many factors. For example, in 1978, the International Joint Commission, an institution that represents both Canada and the U.S., set up a program to monitor pollution in the Great Lakes ecosystem. It was found that in Lake Superior, l-ted farthest from the Atlantic Ocean and having the lowest population density

of all the lakes, PCB levels were declining in lake trout But some researchers felt they were insignificant because conclusions were based on initial PCB levels that were only estimates, and that high levels of toxaphene, a widely used herbicide, in some instances interfered with interpretation of the data. In Lake Huron, three species of fish showed declines in PCB levels between 1970 and 1976, while four other species showed increases, and in other locations, they remained the same. SmaU sample sizes in these studies, and a change in the size distribution of fat content from year to year, were given. as reasons to undermine the conclusions. However, some have suggested thit thedatabase of the U.S. Fish and wildlife Service’s Contaminant Monitoring Program provides the most accurate trends in PCB levels, For example, the reliability of ime particular set of data, in which the bloater chub showed a decline, was based on the assumption thatits short life cycle was suitable to reflect the PCB 1eveIs at the time the samples were taken, as compared to longer lived lake trout and coho salmon which both showed a lag of three years for real d-eases to cxrur. The question was then asked; what significance would such a trend have on human populations that consumed these fish? Even if PCBs were decreasing in the Great Lakes, there would be a lag in decline of PCB levels in humans from five to 15 years and since PCBs are not metabolised as well in humans as in fish,,they could persist in the human population for five to eight generations.

The above evidence shows that the effects of PCB exposure have pi)duped a number of dispartite ,concluSions. Even though the immediate harm of PCBs seemed reIatively less drastic and the long term effects more distressing, direct research on the health effects to humans has ken just as equivocal. Two incidents, another rice oil contamination and an electrical transformer fire suggested rather, a new danger: potential risk from products arisiig from the transformation of PCBs. The first incident occurred in Taiwan, where an outbreak of rjcebran oil poisoning was reported in 1979 that affected 2060 people, of

PCB’Sin the human population whom 24 died within 4 years of a variety of liver cancers and diseases. The babies born to moths who had eaten the contaminated oil showed symptoms that. were identical to those in the Yusho contamination of 1968, as well as death due to pneumonia and bronchitis. The bronchitis, persistent cough, headache, numb limbs, visual impairment, and general fatigue were attributed to polychlorinaf&l dibenzofwans (PCDF), found to be an impurity in the PCB mixtures associated in both the Japanese and Taiwanese incidents. The second incident; a spectacuIar transformer fire in the State Office Building in Binghampton, New York, provided further means to investigate the effects of PCB impurities on human health. There are six chemical reactions that are known to convert PCBs into PCDFs at tempera-s as low as 300 C. A hydroc&on fire%uch as in Singhampton provides the perfect conditions. Associated with this. are the just as vague effects of polychloriMted dibenzodioxins (PCDD), a family of chemicals whose

nature is well documented and shown to be more toxic. Thirty-five ’ percent of the transformer fltid was mad& up of chlormatecl benzenes, whicharea~uspectedtobetheprecursors of PCDDs. A group at the Bureau of Environmental and Occupational Epidemiology, New York State Department of Health in Albany, New York, conducted a medical surveillance program for 482 people who were possibly exposed to the transformer fire. Between 1981 and 1984, Cancer Registry data, medical records, and mailed questionnaires were used to determine the numbem of deaths, cancers, infant mortalities, low birth weight& and congenital malformations. After adjusting for age and sex differences, the rates of these incidences did npt vary signifiantly from those expected when compared to other populations in upstate New York. They did determine after controlling for other differences, that those with a higher degree of potential exposure to PCBs were more likely to report unexplained weight loss, muscle pain, penistent coughing, sleep.disorders, and skin colour changes, than those ‘with the’ least amount of exposure. But the investigators felt that sub sequent stress and reporting biases weakened any link t@te chemicals and reported symptoms, especially since chloracne and neural pathology were not dtigno& a hallmark of PCB exposure. Although the present discussion of PCBs is in no way an exhaustive review, I would like to add a few comments on the present and future issues involved. It is a widely held view that the level of PCBs in the human population is q&e high and the result of life-long exposure, whether from food, water, or breastfeeding from contaminated mother’s milk. It has been estabIished that the intensive use of close to 600 million kilograms of PCBs for nearly four decades has put over one third of that amount into the gI&aI ecosystem.

Even if acute exposure is not readily h&mful to most adult organisms and the effects of chronic exposure equivocal, the most serious threat occurs in the reprodtictive stage of organisms atop the food chain which wouId more than likely have a d&entaI impact on ecwysterns. That said, it is probably prudent to view PCBs as a potential long-term health problem, despite some ‘evidence that its level is declining in the environment since its ban on use in 1977. The challenge will be to somehow destroy the world’s current supply of stored PCBs. The availability of high temperature * incinerators should lower the risk of creating toxic byp roducts of PCB burning. A way of calming public fear regarding storage and disposal of PCBs and their costs must be found. To this extent, the current destruction of the PCBs stored in Smithville, Ontario, located between HaxniIton and St. Catherines, can be viewed as a test of current policies, regulations, and ublic perceptions. For example, @Stras t week, the company hired to carry out the incineration has been stopped from continuing its job because the efficacy of its equipment was called into question Most importantly, research in the areas of biochemistry, toxicology, medicine, and ecology must continue so that a better understanding of PCS exposurecanbeusedtodealwithany future problems. This is vital since PCBs will be with us for a number of generations. , Further leading: IUs and- The Environment, three volumes. Edited by J.S. Waid. CRC Press, Boca Raton. 1987.

Which resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly or Security Council have you forgotten were not implemented or were vetoed by one nation voting alone or virtually sol The ones on awe&on perhaps: “in the past 15 years, the Security Council has adopted fully 15 resolutions condemning Israeli aggression against Lebanon and other Arab countries. Four more such resolutions were vetoed by a lone US vote.” Or the ones on annexation: “in August 1980, the Security Council declared Israel’s annexation of Jerusalem ‘null and void’under international law and, in December 1981, declared IsraeI’s annwtiort of the Syrian Golan HeigMs ‘null and void’ under international law . . . The General Assembbly has also repeatedly conin the demned the . . .

The General Assembly has rwatedly deplored tie Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza . , . and urged a two-state settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict under the auspices of an international peace conference (a December 1989 resolution was supported by 151 countries with only the US, Israel, and’ Dominica casting negative votes).” Human rights violatiuns~ (of which more in part Two): the UN has repeatedly condemned Israel’s human rights practices including its deportation of Palestinians, its “refusal to recognize the applicability of the Geneva Conventions in the occupied territories,” its forcible I, removal and resettlement of Palestinian refugees living in the occupied territories, its “‘arbitrary detention and imprisonment of thousands of Palestinians’,” and its “‘continued massacre’ of filestinian civilians. . .

Consider further the case of East Timor, since it explicitly in~!olves Qnada. Indonesia invaded, and thereby cOmmitted an act of agqx&n against, the Portuguese colony of I% Tiior (from which Portugal had defucto withdrawn) in December 1975. The invasion

was immediately condemned by the UN. and a resolution adopted calling on Indonesia to withdraw. Canada- abstained. When like resolutions came before the U.N. in succeeding years Canada opposed them. Indonesia @ckly annexed East T&nor making it a province of Indonesia. While Canada has never recognized the annexation of the Baltic states by the Soviet Union at the end of WW II some 45 years ago, within months of the invasion it had &fmo recognized the annexation. This despi* the fact that the wz.+xkw (and settlement by Javanese migmnts) remains illegaJ under UN international law; East Timor remains technically a Portuguese colony. The human rights violatiu~ that followed -

massacre, torture, induced starvation and disease - that succeeded in killing off between one-sixth and one-third of the population comparable to, if not exceeding lb1 Pot’s atrocities in Cambodia -went unattended by Canada, the US and the West generally, an of whom went on happily T;;Yp% in Indonesia. Some 300 Cana operate in Indonesia; Canada’s third$largest trading partner. No sanctions were applied. Nobody went to war in defence of international law and ‘democracy’. The oppression continues as I write.

But in the early 3970 s, it was Iran under the Shah, who was the friend. Tb help him in his border dispute with Iraq the US sought to destabilize Iraq by encouraging the Iraqi Kurds in their fight for independence. However, when in 1975 Iraq and Iran temporarily settled their border differences the US immediately deserted the Iraqi Kurds, leaving them to the tender mercies of Saddam As Hitchens says, “On the next day he launched a search-and-destroy operation in Kurdistan that has been going on ever since and that, in the town of HaIabja in 1988, made history by rnartig the first use of chemical weaponry by a state against its own citizens.” Indeed. As Amnesty says in its report on Iraq/ Occupied Kuwait cited above, the horrendoti human rights record compiled by Saddam Hussein’s regime has been “documented by Amnesty International in its numerous reports. Iraq’s policy of the brutal suppression of all forms of internal dissent continues to be implemented, and the people of Iraq remain its victims. Amnesty International has repeatedly placed such information on public record, and regrets that until , the invasion of Kuwait, the intemationaI community did not see fit to appIy serious enough pressure in an attempt to put an end to these abuses.” (Amnesty’s account is complimehted by Samir al-Kahli& Republic ofFfw.- insid ofModem hq (Fkntheon, 1990)).

According to ITWick Seak, author of &d qfSytiJUr&eti~ Of m Press, 1989) in an interview on CBC Radio on Saturday morn+ January 16,1991, it is estimated that Iraqi forces have killed 600-700 Kuwaiti cit&iw3 in the six months since the invasion. “Amnesty International bd.ieve3 that the number of extra-judicial killings (in Kuwait) runs into hundreds, and may well be over looo”(AmnestyIntematio~op.ciQp.44). 6U0-7Qo is equivalent to the count of bodies found in the mass graves in Panama excavated to date.

No ‘home ice advantaab. in aamks l&Z Warrior


byFaulDone Imprint


The first two games bf the O&JAA West hockey semi-final series between the Waterloo Warriors and the Guelph Gryphons followed the pattern of the two regular season games between them, with the Gryphons playing Waterloo much tougher in the Columbia Icefield than in their home arm. Earher on in the year, the Warriors had defeated Guelph 5-2 in the Royal City, and then lost a tough squeaker 43 in overtiqe to the Gryphs at home. The series opener, played before a decent crowd at the Icefield, saw the Gryphons, greatly aid+ by outstanding goaltending and lax refereeing,

push the Warriors to theI brink of elimination with a 3-1 victory, . Waterloo broke on top at the 9~14 mark of the first period witi a powerplay goal from hulking defenceman Rod Thacker, on a deflected dr&& from the left circle. Assisti were given to his equally huge blueline partker Ian pound, and to left-winger Mike MacKay. The Warriors couldn’t increase their lead, though, and Guelph knotted the score with the man advantage at 6:21 of the second frame. Brian Hayton was allow&l to skate deep into the circle unmolested and-blast one past OUAA first-team all-star goaltender Steve Udvari. With the. exception of the scoreboard, Waterloo continued to dominate the g&e in every way. The laissez-faire gamecalling of Bob Morley helped to prevent the Warriors from capitalizing on opportunities in close, as Guelph used their

size and-aggressiveness to clear the front of the net. backstop. Rob Foumier ’ Guelph continued to nullify Waterloo’s scuring opportunities in the third period. During the game, he stopped 39 of the Warriors’ 40 shots cornpad to just 19 shots on net for Guelph. During the stanza, Dave Lore+, Tony Crisp, and Steve Richard each had multiple chances in close,but failed to score. There was an impending sense of gloom among. the crowd at the IrAeld as the third period wound inexorably down. Then, with 3:41 to go, Guelph seized the lead in flukey fashion With Gryphon Eric Ross down in Udvari’s crease, and the’ whole arena waiting for Morley to blow the whistle, Haytoqflickd asoft shot toward the Warrior net. Udvari, screened and distracted by the commotion in his crease barely saw the’ shot before * it drifted behind him.

Twenty-seven seconds later, Guelph’s standout backliner Steve Perkovic nearly became the g-t, as he was sent to the penalty box for a hooking minor. This was not to be the Warriors’ night though. Even with Udvari pulled, and a six-on-four advantage, the best they could do was put a dent in the left gmlpost Gryphon captain Mike Gillies put the game on ice with an empty-netter at 18142. So, Saturday night was to be the gutcheck. Staring ignominious elimination square in the face, the Warriors





highway 7 knowing that a hot goalie, a confident team, and a belligerent’ crowd awaited them (well ... forget the third item, more on that later). Despite a 12-6 shots on goal -margin for the Gryphons, the first period was a fairly even defensive struggle, with Steve Udvari making three st?p on Bryan M&i (yes,

another feisty Maki) in close to keep the game scoreless. The Warriors, overcoming some early butterflies, opened things up in the second and began skating betier, showing more focus, better intensity forechecking, and more crispness in their pas@ng. Though it took half the period before they finally hit paydirt, there was a sense that, this time, the Warriors would not be denied. When Clark Day 6nally banged home tie fmt Warrior goal off a rebound on a Tony Crisp drive from the point, it was all the prompting that the





Waterloo fan contingent needed to turn up the noise. From that point on, the pots, pans, and heckling implied that this was Waterloo’s home game, not Guelph’s. Gory Keenan got the other assist on Day’s goal, which was

Mac wins division title squeaker

Black warrior


Plague prays for ClAU /wildcard


. The Waterloo volleyball Warriors’ drive for a fourth appearance in five years at the national championships has temporarily been put on hold. Canada’s sixth-mdced warriors fell at the short end of an agonizingly close battle with the fifth-ranked McMaster Marauders 3-1 (17-15,1512, 4-15, 15-13). wii the win, M&aster clinched the OUAA West division title, and now advance to the provincial championship match against the tenth-ranked Toronto Varsity Blues Saturday afternoon in Toronto. The eight CIAU toumam e;t participants will be the five conference champions, the host team, and two other wildcard teams (qsually the highest ranking leftovers}. This year, the nation’s top-ranked LavaI Rouge et Or will host the nationals and should win the QUAA conference, which would create a third wildcard spot. lf there are no upsets, no.1 Laval

(QUAA), no.2 Calguy (CWUAA), no.3 Dalhousie (AUAA), no.4 Manitoba (GPAC), and no.5 McMaster (OUAA) will win their reseve

conferences. That would leave no.6 Waterloo. (OUAA), no.7 Winnipeg (GPAC), no.8 Sherbrooke (QUAA), no.9 Saskatchewan (GPAC), and no.10 Toronto (OUAA) a6 the hopefuls. Andy long as wildcard M&laster defeats Toronto, the Warriors have the best chance of anybody for an invitation to the nationals. If Toronto upsets McMaster, then the Marauders would be’ the first for a .wildcard consideration, lessening UW’s chances. Everyone will have to wait until after the outcome of this weekend’s matches and the Monday morning CIAU top ten release t0 know their fate. Back to last Saturday’s barnburner. The B&k Plague marched onto the M&taster campus with legions of black-clad Warrior faitil, so many that they outnumbered’and outyelled ‘the Marauder contingent. Inspired by their posse, the Plaguesters jumped out to a 5-2,lead after an&ray of sideouts. Proving this would be no cakewalk for either side, Mac replied to take a 10-7 advantage. Consistent serving by veteran Warrior Tony Martins capped off with the first of many super-kills by Steve Smith, knotted the game at 11. Over the next five series, both teams showed peat defence at the net, with Waterloo looking to take the opener, leading 15-14. unfortunately, ‘the mauders ral&d with the next three points to k&e game one, 17~15.

Zabjeck third among CIAU high jumpers ,

by Dale Lapham Irctprint sports

In the OwIAA/OUAA Track and Field Championships this past weekend, the Warriors and Athenas each placed a respectableeighth. The team set a totaI of 19 personal bests (pb) in this competition, bringing the season pb total to 99.

UW head coach Brent McFarIane felt the team did exceptiody well. “Lastyear we qualified one athlete to the CIAU’s and this year eight will be going. chlr team’s pe~OMlbeSts total for the season has reached 99, and-1 1 varsity records have been set” Among the top performances for Waterloo was that of Karl Zabjeck, who set a varsity record of 2.1&n in the hii jump, breaking the 15 year old record of Rick Heemskirk (personal best, CIAU standard performance) and good for fourth lace in the elite field. Jane Taite finis fl ed the

60m hurdles event in a blistering 9.20 seconds, a personal best and a CIAU standard, while the men’s 4x40&n relay team of Steve Walker, Brent Formt, Jason NTM~~, and Pat Kirkham crossed the line in 3:25.63, fifth overall and yet another CIAU standard. On the performances of Zabjeck and Taite, McFarlane expressed that “in his first year, Karl has demonstrated he is a contender for great things to come in Canadian university high jump and Jane ran superbly with pb’s in her 60m heat

Dalhousie University put their extensive athletic facilities to good use this past week-end as they hosted the AUAA basketball and volleyball championships, but most importantly the CIAU swimming championships. Dal is in the enviable position of king able to run all these events because of the foresight they took in buiId@ the DaIplex, a multipurpose athletic facility that is remarkably sin&u to the ill-fated Student Iife Building of last faL Waterloo was represented at this wonal finale to ,the swim~,season by Sheryl Slater and Ian Hunt. SIater’s senior status on this trip aIlowed her to retain front seat privileges most,of the weekend, as the rookie Hynt was unable to calI “shotgun” nearly quickly enough. Slater had what can perhaps best be termed the meet of her life. She placed in the top twenty in the country in three separate events including a thirteenth-place in the 800 free. This third-year Ottawa native had best times in each of her four events. Her performances inc1uded lowering her

Athena team record in the 400 IM by another 1.4 seconds. This marked a fuII five-second improvement in her times over the come of the season. Hunt, meanwhile, was unable to surpass his stellar performances of the OUAA’s. He was only a tenth of a second off his best times. He did earn a second swim in the 100 butterfly to finish the season f&eenth in the the 100 back for country. Swimming the first time this season Hunt had a personal best in a time which ranks him fifth& time at Waterloo. The meet itself was unbelievably fast. ‘Itvo Commonwealth and nationd records, plus seven UAU records were set over the course of the week-end Ca@@ retained their men’s title with Toronto and AIberta rounding auf the top three. The women’s team, for the fifth year in a row, was Toronto although they were closely followed by Universite de MuntreaL UBC was third in the women’s race. Turlough O’Hare of MC provided the greatest excitment of the meet with a Commonwealth record in the second event of the ,meet, the 200 free, he followed this on Sunday with a record swim in the 400. O%are added a third gold in the 1500 free. F&kia Noall of Montreal had a hand in four CIAU records to earn her swimmer of the year honors. She won the 200 and 400 frees, the Qoo IM

and anchored the 4 X 200 free relay all in record time. The top twelve men and women at this meet qualified to represent Canada at this summer’s World University Games in Sheffield, England. For those of you who pIan way ahead the next games will be in beautiful Buffalo in 1993. This meet marked the conclusion of the swim season and coaches John Heinbuch and Jeff SIater would Iike tothankalltheswimmersformaking the year very memorable and enjoyable.

Wilcox Sober?!? n&t really lending itself to dancing, or shoulder-to-shoulder the atmosphere on the dance floor, we don’t know. But everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and we heard no complaints afterward. We felt it w;as the kind of music that one should just sit back and enjoy, and of course, drink to. Scott’s 160 proof vodka was perfect for the occasion. Incidentally, orange juice costs $1.50 there.

Last’ Thursday night I had the pleasure of seeing a living legend, Johnny Cash, play a sold-out show at Lulu’s in KitcheneT. He play&i for about an hour and a half and put on a great show, but another 15 minutes probably would have k&d him. Here’s my rundown of the shoti When I got to Lulu’s at 9:50 pm, the fu&thingIdidwastostandb&in amazement at the size of the place, it is huge. But, nonetheless, by this time there was a crowd qund the stage about 40 people deep. Overall in the audience, there was about a 50150 split between people over 40 and under 40, but most of the older peaple were sitting down while the peg ple in front of the stage were of the younger kind. But, I didn’t have much time to admire the surroundings as when the clock struck i0 the man in black hit the stage. The firstthing he did was to literally run around the stage and wave to the audience, so I guess his time off of the drugs and booze hits done him well. He- started off with ‘Ring of Fii’ with the help of background singers: his wife June Carter Cash and her sisters Helen and Anita.

l?te band cons&ted of a stand-up bass, electric @a& drums and piano with Johnny laying an acoustic. After the Lt number the sisters left and he did halfan hoti of some of his more famous numbers And yes he started ‘Folsom Prison Blues’off by saying ‘Hello, I’m Johnny Cash’. His voiceisstillgruffbutstillpowerful enough to shake your bones. Johnny took a break after half an hour while his wife and her s&t= came on stage singing songs which were ‘a Carter family tradition.’ Wnforhmately, this mearks that I, along with most of the audience, had never heard any of the sow befbre, Most of the songs were not really notable, tith the only famous one being ‘May the CircIe be Unbroken’ which last year was covered by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, which incidentally won them a Grammy Award. Johnny then ‘came back singirig a Boy Named Sue and he himself edited out the words ‘Mother Fucker’ from the $econd last verse. He just put a big bq~ where the words would have been, but why did he write those words if he can’t use them in concert? Maybe he just uses them when he

about the Gulf Wat being over and h&w he was proud of his troops for gchg over, but then he sang the song ‘Billy, don’t take your guns to town’. He didn’t mention the titIe of the next song and I had never heard it wore, but it was&o about tiar and it was - rdy good. It hums out that last Thursday was Johnny and June’s 23rd wedding anniversary, so June came out to sing a few love songs after which her sisters came out and everybody joined in on a few negro SpirituaI song% These were quite good and the lighli@ of the show in my opinion, but I‘m partial to negro spirituals.

Folk history has traditionally been of an oral nature, and voicesof Freedom,which retells some of the struggles of the Civil Rights moveherrt, works becausdit approximates verbal history, told through interviews with the participants.

Unfortunately for Robby Van Winkle (vanilla’s real name), this ploy fails to work, The book does succeed, however, in pointing out all of the glaring inconsistencies in the Vanilla Ice/ Robby Van Winkle biography. Half of the motivation for “Ice, Ice Baby”‘s writing of this expanded Tiger Beut feature was to set ihe record straight about his past. If anything Robby only succeeds in adding strength to the argument that he is lying through his pearly white teeth. Ice often mentions his street upbringing living with his mother and brother in the ghettos of Miami with ne’er a penny to their name. Yet he could afford to own an Iroc Z, and all the motocross equipment necessary to be on the national motorcross tour for Six years. Curious.

(suiOor120dq~ ufsdom). The screenplay, based on the Margf~is de Sade sLesjoumesdeS is placed against the backdrop of modem history, in the last days of Italy’s rule under fas&m.‘The location is the northern Italian town of Sale, where Mussolini set up a shortterm republic after his flight from Rome in 1943. On its release, Sal0 created controversy among critics for its depiction of sadism. The death of Pasolir& a few weeks after the fiJm% release, further accentuated this c&i&m. On Nov. 3, 1975, Fbolini was found brutally murdered on the outskirts of Rome, known as the borgate, a desolate wasteland pop dated by poor southern migrants. Although a young male prostitute had confessed to the murder, many Italians felt the murder had more p&id motives. - The shrouded atmosphere of homosexual violence and mystery made it tipqible to dissociate the film and the way Pasolini lived his Me - and met his death Comparisons between the film and P~olin.i% life have been often infused with a moralism that Pasolini unequivocally rejected inhisartTodescribeF?&irtiasa lover of perversion, and to equate that with a love of fascist perversions and rituals is simple, unsatisfactory and WOllg.

On viewing the film, I have always been intrigued about the undercurrent of themes present. Sal0 cannot be dismissed easily by leaving the theatre during the film, as many individuals did when I saw it. The easydismissalofthefrlmisinpartan ideological comment, and the failure to come to grips with the vivid ideas in the film is dangerous.

Woven into this interplay was Pasolini’s uncritical attachment to the peasantry of the Italian countryside. Greene has a penchant for being ,able to outline Pasolini’s progress from regional poet to national writer, to international film director. She parallels this geographic shift with his intellectual cultivation.

cinematop;raphic style. * Pasoliri?s iiovelshave also affected his films. The novels Ragazzi di vita (Boys of l#e, 1955) and Una vita violenta (A Vhlent Life, 1959), together with his major collection of poetry Le ceneri di Gramxi (The Ashes

ofGrm9zsci, 1957) gave Pasolini critical clout as a writer and placed his work within the melodramatic milieu of neo-realist filmmakers. The presence of the neo-realist movement gave Pasolini the opportunity to write scripts for directors Federico Fellini and Mauro Bolognini. In his early films Pasolini continued in this tradition of neo-realism. Greene writes: “It is not merely the milieu of these films - one pop ulated by whores, petty thieves and unwed mothers - that recalls neorealist dramas. Eke filmmakers of a preceding generation, Pasolini emphasizes the economic and social chains that bind the character.” These early fiIrns move back and forth between neo-realist melodrama H&s a-picking and IVII a-grinnin’ and a tougher, political style of documentary.

The plot of the film follows the enactment of these rituals, beginning with perversion (the creation of mama), shit (dominated by cop rophagy), and blood (symbolized by torture and death). “Private sexual lives like mine,,” Pasolini said, “have been subjected to the trauma of false tolerance and/or corporeal degradation: what constituted joy and sorrow in se@ fantasies has turned into suicidal disillusionment and amorphous ennui.” The real scandal of &lo is not its depiction of violence, but rather the complicity of the audience with the monsters on the screen.

di$sc&de itself from the acts occurr~ on the screen. The audience must take responsibiity. The audience is not, however, drawn into the movie thruu@t the sexual acts, b-use the f&&t libertines are removed of any of their sexuality and every traditional aspect of

to page 29 romance or sensuality is removed from the film. It is the death of sex. Sexual acts in &lo are depicted in a brutal manner, v@hout preamble, ad no cinematic foreplay. The vietints do not undress but appear nu&, lined up as awaiting a gas chamber. in Sale, Pasoliqi fosters the viewer’s corn licity in domination for profit and tai es the idea further by suggesting that fihhgoers, while remaining compliant with relations of domination, can achieve awareness of the fact They can stop deluding themselves, unl&e the private Irustrated consumer of pornography. At its best’ Greene’s Cinema as &my reflects the importance of Pasolini’s contribution to Italian culture. It also illustrates how the Italian bourgeoisie has tried to discredit the validity of Pasolini’s work through personal attacks and through ideological criticism of his style and aesthetics. The death of Pasolini and the hasty official inv&igation that followed suggests Pasohni’s murder were ignored and swept under the txqx?t. ^ The complicity of a neo-capitakt society in the murder of Pasolini mirrored necessity preserve


in the acceptability and of such grotesque actions t0 a particular exploitative

social order.

we are all accomplices

Ruth P&wer Jhabvala, a screenwriter and author, adapted two separate novels by Evan S. Connell, 1959’s Mm. Bridge and 1969’s Mr. Bkdge, and director James Ivory has cast real life husband-and-wifePaulMewmanand Joanne Wdwarq# in the leads.

gling with for decades: questions of money, duty, and happiness; kids who’d rati& die than be like Mom and Dad; and parents who can’t understand why the values they were raised on have proved so inadequate. In Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller universes, these cm lead to big explosions, but the film’s characters are imploding instea& quietly, almost surreptitiously. That’s one of the reasons Ivory paces the f&n the way hedck The acting is simply standout, mesme&in& Woodward% character, India Bridge, eventdy takes a tiore centralfocusbecausethisgreying mother,. doting wife, and naive, dependent, and confused woman is. the only one making any kind of journey of self-discovery. Walter Bridge loses himself in his role as patriarch and ~ovjder. He makes an exeIlent livingasanattomeyandisacontrolled disciplina&n to their three children, but he becomes virtually incapable of expressing any emotion (except anger). Newman’s face is a great stone on the screen; Mr. Bridge looks l&e he belongs on Mount .

Bridae Rushmore, where he could be faded by sun and rain but still maintain that inner power. Indii, meanwhile, seems tg grow shorter, flabbier, and more ineffectual as the movie goes on. Her character can’t help fluttering though she knaws it yields power to the savvier, cooler heads around her, she keeps bubbling over. Her experience is such a real part of many older women’s lives that to see it visualized is almost indescribable. I Connell and Jhabvala take it for granted that the rebellious children, coming of age as Hitler sweeps Europe, will want to join a brave new world and leave their par&ts’choices behind. This film rbognizes the& longings but is more conce’med with the parents’ point-of-view. It doesh’t mock Mr. and Mrs. Bridge’s Victorian morals. When Mr. Bridge criticizes strangers’ ivork habits or explains how artists should hold regular jobs dyrhg the week and do their art on weekends, he may appear stodgy, but he is never devoid of dignity, You can see where he’s coming from (the Depression, among other places). Mrs. Bridge, meanwhile~ is always trying to put on a cheery front because her generation was taught that if you build a safe, insulated, grounded existence for yourself and your family’ your problems should be over. (It’s the same school of thought that prompted the father in Saul Bellow’s seize tke paU to say to his son: ‘You make too much of your troublesThey ought not to be turned into a career. Concentrate on real troubles - fatal sickness, accidents.“) So when India’s beloved, longtime friend, the spectacular, flambQyant Grace, (vibrantly played by B&the Danner}tellsher”I&inkImaybeloshgIll+&bl.lLndiaBrid~Can thinktodoisgetheracupoftea Ivory’s A b~~2 WMz a -V&w was a disappcrintment, full of tedious caricatures, but Mr. and Mm Bid@ is infinitely more compassionate* It’s full of the tenderness that comes‘front understand@. Movies don’t often managetorealizecharact~onthe periphq‘ so well, but mbvala’s xript and Ivory’s direction allow the actors to do their work very economicalIy. The characterizations of the son (Robert Sean IRMnard), daughtm CKyra sedgwick and hbgaret Welsh), secretary @iane Kagan) andmaid (Saundr;iMcClain), are concise, yet vivid. Every scene has a point to make, but so subtly that moments grow on you after the film is over. This is in

contrast to the period pieces that have wowed the box office, 6lrns like Chmioti of Fiw, which diminish with rumination and repeat viewings. Tony Pierce-Xoberts’ cinematography is lush, but not slick; it has tex-

Yin Yangund the flowerpotNewman hue. fie se& and costumes by David Groprnan and Carol Ramsey are not just about well-off middle-America in the late thirties, they’re also about lives lived - I found myself imagining Mrs. Bridge as a young womn, picking out silverware and wallpaper. Richard Robbins’ score and Humphry Dixon’s editing keep the rhythm within the compact scenes fluid; this complements the over&l structure, which is often jagged and anticlimactic in comparison with traditional plot organization. All facets of the picture feel balanced: while we see M;rs. Bridge’s lack ofselfsufficiency, and the validity of her resentments, we also see why she married her husband. He’s a remarkable person. (There’s a fantastic scene where he refuses to budge for a

This is most unfortunate. Songs which should have been relegated to a dank flipside of a single or rendered into album filler have been released as singIe (a ten-&her at that) in its own right. Moreover, the song titles, those beautifully long ones like “Nobody’s twisting your arm” and “What did your last servant die of?” have been chopped down to one word. “Co&troy” and “Crawl” are

the two new Wedd@ Present tunes, with a cover of Steve Harley’s “Come up and see me, make me smile” anda live version of ‘T&e me!” levelling the dish of tripe.

The cover is the 0nIy’sofkg which faiitly recalls the intensity of their last album, Bizarm, and that’s only an anemic replication. Thjs gets worse too. The “Smile” tune originally a peared on an anti-poll tax LP called 1 bin Lives in L&b and was redone for the Ail Sbngs Sbund the Same EP. Bad show lads,as the first version was far more powerful and raw. “Corduroy” was a good, jangly,. frenetic song pefformed live, but that’s lost in Steve Albini’s mix, while “Crawl” is a waste of time entirely. No songs on l?iamb or-Gage lht were as lame and weak as these. Strewn derision aside, I pray their next release is an improvement

Following his uneven 1990 solo LJ? Intaierence, Grant Hart (formerly Bob Mould’s better kralf in Husker Du) has assembled a new band, Nova Mob. They are all set to release a fullyblown concept album - a RJC~ opem V&zy! - cded TheLastDcr?;s of Rmzpeii. This new,JF serves as a teasing preview of that project. with Nova &lob, Hart has returned

Unfortunately, this EP - like most EPS- conits fair share of fiuer. “Admiral of the Sea” turns up in two different “mixes” that are similar enough to render at least one redundant. There’s also an instrumental, “Getaway in Time,” that’s kinda nice but still seems pretty slight. Lastly and lea&y, there’s a cover of Willie Dixon’s ‘I ‘Just Want to Make Love to You” that does nothing. B,lah. How come nobody puts redsongp on the Bside anymore? Oh3v4L the two main tunes are ace, and promise one helluvalot far the new album. Can hardly wait.

Won mtitur: Often the word ‘lick’ is used when describing jazz playing. Jazz musicians often begin their playing by copying other’s phrases that they like. When this copying is repeated it becomes a lick Each musician develops his own library of ticks from either his own creations or elaborating on someone else’s. Musicians employ these licks in solo improvisation work. The licks can be rhythmic or melodic in nature and are used to break out of the tyranny of older licks and to create new ones.
