campus. Men violating women’s bodies & apparently far less serious than m&ing too much noise during quiet hours, for which you can be fined. The administration has an interest in protecting the reputation of the University for the sake of future enrollment. This means that vital information you may need to protect yourself may be withheld for the sake of the University’s name (reputation).

Everyone knows that rape is a “problem,” but what do we really know about it? How many women or men do you know that have been raped? If you know Eour women, the odds are that one of them has been a victim of rape. These are the incidents that are reported; we can only guess how many go unreported. These are the statistics, but most of people feel the University Waterloo is safe. The reason for this is not necessariIy that it is not reported by the victims, but that it is kept quiet by some levels of the administration. A recent study by a L,ondon rape crisii centre showed that UW has one of the highest per capita incidents of rape for a university campus. During this term alone, three women in a single residence have been raped; only one of these have reported it to the University “R&e.” What happens on this campus ,~enapersonisraped?BasicalIy,itis

- Stokely-ing the -fires- of revolutitm by Angela Heeds Imprint staff Rarely have University of Waterloo students been exposed to such dogmatic con+tion as displayed by a speaker for the Pan-Afrian movement last week But this was not just any speaker. The man who captured the attention of about 50 Uw students, Kwame Ture, was used to addressing crowds in the hundreds, if not thousands, in the 1960s civil rights movement under his former name, Stokely Carmichael. But despite the small crowd, Ture was at his rhetorical peak, invoking emotional pleas, religious imagery and using full body language to emphasize his points“He is one of the greatest orators,” said Ricardo Marshall, spokesperson for the Caribbean Students Association, which co-sponsored the event with the African Students Association. Brother Ture maintained that capitalism and socialism are the only two economic systems, and social&m the instinctively natural one. Capitalism is merely neocolonialism claims Ture. “When African masses are prophrly organized, liberation is around the comer,” he said. This revolution will be f5ocialist. But this movement must be on a global scale, says Ture, to fight racism and injustice worldwide. His next speaking engagement is in the Caribbean. ‘7 know there is racism in Canada,” said a student in the audience, agreeing with Ture’s claim that neither white students or students of colour

up

want to upset the status quo. The student, who has lived and travelled in the US, the Caribbean, and Africa, said that undercover CIA agents pose as students in the United States ahd look for radicals. Fearing similar tactics here, she did not want her name published. “When you go to look for a job, you wonder why no one will hire you,” she said. Racism exists here in subtle ways, she said. Political education is the most important tool for realizing our natural socialist instincts, said Ture. He noted that Coca-C6la advertising is capitalist political education. Path person probably sees five Coca-Cola signs per day, he said. * “Coca-cola wants you to see 500. Then when you are thirsty youll want a coke and youll think you thought of it yourself.” This capitalist, indoctrination just confuses us, he said. When asked if arms would be necessary to liberate Africa, Ture replied that this was “not a question for the oppressed but for the oppressor.” “Wars are not dependent on technology but upon the will of the people,” said ,Ture. He encouraged the audience to join any organization if not the Pan-African movement “Women are oppressed more in every society because they are the least organized,” claimed_ Ture. “Unless you are involved in an organization to further humanity, you are working against humanity,” he said. ‘The interests of the people must dominate every aspect of CW lives,” asserted Ture leaning empathetidly over the podium. “We stand ready for the revolution.”

If a woman who has been sexually assaulted decides to press criminal charges against the aggressor, the administration withdraws totally from the case. The ,Tutor’s Court doesn’t want to make a decision while cx$miil proceedings are occurring. The implication of this is that the rapist may live close by, which is not god for the woman’s mental health. a If you want to find out statistics on the number of “sexual assaults” on campus, the UW ‘police” invite you to come over 40 the office and talk to them about it.

McGill women protest rape verdict byshactnm AIdinger amtesy McGiIlTribune Approximately 200 students from McGill University and Concordia University in Montreal protested outside McGill’s Phi Delta Theta fraternity house Friday night following one member’s acquittal of a sexual assauh charge. Demonstrators waved placards reading “a woman was raped here” and chanted “whatever we drink, however we dress, no means no and yes means yes” outside the house at the comer of University and Milton ti Montreal. . Earlier that day, Quebec Court Judge Luc Trudel acquitted fraternity member Patrick Booth on the grounds that Booth had reason to believe the, woman had consented to intercourse.

* In other words&e’s saying ‘no means no’ only sometim&+,‘7said Coalition Against Sexual Assault member Valerie Renwick who attend thetriaL ‘In a rape case, the woman is the expert is telling when the boundary (between consent and rape) has been crossed,” Women’s Union member Katarina Soukup said. ‘%I this case, the judge let Patrick Booth off because of how he interpreted the situation. That’s wrong; it must be the woman whose testimony is heard.” The judge also cited the drunkenness of the woman, the absence of ripped or soiled clothing and other signs of struggle, the defendant’s reputable character witnesses, and the Crown’s inability to provide conclusive evidence that consent had not been given as reasons for his verdict.

The woman, whose identity is protected under a court publication ban, charged Booth with raping her at the fraternity house during a party on January 21,199O. Testimony during the trial showed that,both the plaintiff and the accused had been drunk at the time of the incident. There were no witnesses. Trudel concluded that &hough “no means no,” each case must be judged on its own merits. “Saying ‘no’ doesn’t mean she has to be beaten, bruised, threatened, or have her clothes tom,” Trudel said in his verdict “A no is a no and before the law that is sufficient. But we must lookbinto each case.” “I do not believe the testimony has the quality of proof beyond a reasonable doubt” Members groups were

of McGi& women’s appalled at the verdict

Another student

“It corn- down to her word against his. It’s a typical example of a judge taking the man’s side,” Renwick said. “Obviously a woman wouldn’t go to court if nothing had happened” As students demonstrated outside the frathouse last Friday, members held a party inside. Some demonstrators believed it was a erty to celebrate the acquittal Several party-goers congregated outside the house. “I’m totally against rape,” said one unidentified member. “But you have to accept the fact that sometimes it happlS.“ ‘-t’s bullshit,‘f Women’s Union member Seema Goel said. “No one has to accept that. That’s the whole point. behind demonstrations like thisi women always retain the right to say no.” The plaintiff has since !eft McGill and currently studies in Ottawa.

byPeterBrown rmprint St& The Unive-rsity of Winnipeg student paper has been muzzled, staffat -the Uniter claim, making it the third student paper across the country to be censured for running an explicit safe sex guide for men. Stitements by the U. of Wiipeg Students’ Association &IVVSA) President Kyle Briggs at a special meeting suggested that the Uniter,long ain outspoken voice for the left, could, as of next month, be a very different newspaper. Uniter staff present among the crowd of more than 100 were stunned to hear that the hiring of editors, to take place at the end of this month, will be taken out of the hands of U’i&r collective staff. In addition, the circulation of the paper will be cut by 25 per cent, from 4,000 to 3,000, said Briggs. Katherine Devine, spokesperson for the Uniter collective, denied that circulation would be cut. Briggs has accused the U&er staff of selectively enforcing their own constitution, while some of the staff professed surprise at the very existence of the constitution. Briggs took pains to stress that the UWSA’s actions are not’ simply a reaction to the safe-sex article but “a reflection of the profound concerns students have about the Uniter this year.” While the gay and Iesbii community has largely sided with the Uniter, one homosexual student who identified himself simply as Patrick, called the guide insulting embarrassing, and damaging to the homosexual community. Referring to the article’s mention of drinking urine and eating excrement, Patrick said, “I’mga y and I don’t want people thinking that’s what 1 do. That’s not on my top-10 list; that really disgusts me. Using words like ‘cum’

and ‘pee,’ it sounds

like it was

written by someone with a grade five education.” These comments were echoed by Jan, a political science student: “I’m gay and 1 was offended by it” However, Devine said those who spoke out against the article were feeling society’s homophobia and

when you go over there. Rape and other forms of sexual assault are one of the few personal, violent, and vio&-irkg crimes that no one wants to know about or be told about. Robbery, murder, muggings - all these are well-known problems. Rape and sexual assault? A brief paragraph tucked away in the classifieds. Mary Koss, a psychology professor at Kent State University in Ohio, estimates that “at least ten times more rapes occur among college students than are reflected in official crime statistics.” The conviction rate for charged rapists is absurdly low, hovering around 16 per cent. The fact that most rapists are not prosecuted obviously does nothing to deter them; if anything. they are encouraged by this. One of the many myths about rape is that it is committed by strange=, but the truth is that over half of all 70 per cenL r;tps - approximately are committed by someone the victim knows. This is known as date or acqkntance rape, and usually takes place late in the evening or early in the morning and frequently at the rapist’s residence. Alcohol and/or drug use can often conti,bute both to the bcidence of rape and it s denial

paper muzzled passing it on. Kyle Ehiggs’ concerns about the ’ Uniter were mirrored at Wilfrid Laurier University, where WLU Student Union president Stuart Lewis . has led a clampdown on that university’s student newspaper, The Cord, after it published excerpts from the original Muse article. l%e Cord resumed publishing last week under the editorial control of WIUSU’S Student Publications Board president Jana Watson.

by both partners. Men who act normally in most so&l settings can turn into rapists, due to pre-conceived attitudes about women. “Sixty per cent of college-aged males reported that under the right circumstances, they would use force, .rape, or both in sexual relations with women,” according to the Metro Action Committee on public violence against women and children. Additionally, most men do not even know or realize what they are doing is wrong. These attitudes are the result of socialized stereotypes taught to us through our peers and largely through fhe media’s portrayal of women. In, most of the advertising industry, women are nearly always portrayed in a passive pose while the men are aggressive. Studies have shown that women ‘learn” to be passive and quiet as early as the age of 11. Young girls are given dolls to play with and boys are given laser guns to fi&t with. Pornography can also be a very danp;erous rqeditun if men do not realize its potential effects, such as desensitizing our perceptions of women by objectifying them. Men have to make themselves aware of what rape is. If she says no, she means it. She is not teasing you; this is not a game. She has the right to say yes or no, and her answer must be respected. If you do not respect her decision, you are not recognizing her as a human being. Rape is when she says no, and he continues. Understand?

On March 13 and 24,1991, Science and Optometry students at UW voted 84.4 per cent in favour of the addition of a new fee. The $50 Voluntary Student Contribution (VSC) is part of the newly developed Waterloo Science Endowment Fund (WatSEF); Interest earned from the fund will be used to improve the level of undergraduate sciex&e education. One of the first goals of the Endowment Committee is to improve Science undergraduate laboratory and computing fkilities. “Clearly, Science students recognize that much of the equipment used in the undergraduate labs is out of date and needs to be replaced in order to keep the science graduates-at Waterloo competitive in the workplace,” said Science Society president Jeffrey Paulson. The WatSEF will be administered by a student-controlled board of directors. Directors will be elected to

I do not think many UW students know about this little place tucked away on the western shore of Columbia Lake. I even doubt that any of the stude& living at the Columbia Lake Townhouses are aware of the climax stand of beech and maple just a few hundred metres northeast of them, Myself, I was not even aware of it until last autumn. It is ironi<-th$ the Department of Biolog)l woodlot was quite invisible to one of its biology students till hi fourth year. The woodlot is a place of contrasts and contradictions. The @enhouses and botanical garden .,ienify the unrelenting praence of human activity. A gated fence provides the arbitrary limit ta nature. (If you do not wish to scale the barrier, access to the woodlot can be made by taking a walk around the northem tip of the lake, and &king your way past the corn fields; it is not coinpletely fenced 0ti.J On the o&er side is a community of denuded trees” reaching skyward out of a snow-covered surface. An intermittent American beech jeaiously clings to its duIl orange leaves, disrupting the monotonous browns and dark greys. When I first encountered this area in my Eield lab, I was astonished by the explicit and subliminal beauty of the trees and the dynamics of fall colour; the bright red fruit of the jack-in-the-pulpit and the fragrance of the wild leeks. I knew I wanted to experience this area again, in all seasons, to witness the natural cycles. It also provides a convenient sanctuary from the rhythm of strictly human life. The rhythm of human life that seems more and more divorce9 from nature. There is not much in the way of strictly naturaI areas left in the urban landscape. Every place that can be construed as natural has at some point felt the effects of human activity. The park bench on the eastern perimeter trail reinforces the contradictions of this island of nature surrounded by human objects, contradictions that I hope will make my subsequent reflections unique.

The anecdote is as simple a~ this: I was’ searching fora radio station which w;ouId provide me with the outcome of the Ruddockl Tyson fight which had taken place earlier on that evening. As I moved the AM dial (no digital readouts, please!) from its location at . 740, toward 570 where I thought I might hear the 2 am news, I happened upon two men fiercely arguing the fight’s outcome - as it turned out, one was Richard Steele, the fight’s referee. That is not important. The sbtion, thanks to one of those mysteries of atmospherics, was 660 WFAN, an all-talk radio station from New York City. After a few minutes, I began to slowly turn the dial, listening to the voices which were being carried to me from across a continent, I was seemingly magical struck by the phenomenon that allowed mKto be conriected to those voices - not by sotie coaxial cable, not by some phone line, not by some money-costing satellite dish, but by six dollars and some left-over batteries. While it is a natural impulse to desire the sense of power which comes, from the inner workings of understanding technologies - be they as dissimilar as language md electronic media, our arrogance I can blind us to the magic in the mysteries of these devices. There is a certain shamanism, a tribalism to the feelings which were aroused by this random incident. In some sense, however, it seems to me that rediscovering the reverent mystery which enstiouds technologies in their nascence can bring about perspective in our own relations with them. It can, however briefly, drop tie veils and shrouds which habit throws up around elements of our technologies, and restore the strangeness which it attached to the notion of anonymously listening to a voice broadcast some hundreds of miles away.

Let3 -save a bunch of paper To the editor, -Would you like to know how the University of Waterloo’s administration could conserve literally, millions of pieces of paper every term? Through registration. For one of the most advanced universities in Ontario, Waterloo has one of the slowest and most inefficient registration systems ever. While other universities (such as the University of Windsor or the University,of Ottawa) have switched over to “touch-tone” registration, UW is still standing in lines and still handing out schedules. Here’s how the, more efficient registration systems are now working: 1) a “newspaper” of the upcoming term’s courses to be offered, including a description of the course, the time of the course, the place of the course, the instructor of the course, and the final examination time and date of the course, is published approximately two months in advance of the term (during preregistration). This eliminates the need for calendars and personal schedules since the Ynewspaper” tells you what’s being offered, where your course is meeting. and when your final exam is. . 2) After deciding which course to take, the student then phones in his registration through a “touch-tone” telephone, with the codes of the courses listed in his pre registration “newspaper.” The system may either accept or decline his requests immediately; hence, he may decide on another course while on the line, and he knows immediately whether he’s got in or not Also, the student already has the time and place or where his course meets, so it is not necmry for him to pick up any extra printed schedule of his timetable. This saves on the

~&ate

.

mXcms of schedules re-printed and re*ted every term, and also the time in lines for trying to get into a course. 3) After the student has registered, through “touch-tone” phone, his payment fees, along with any loan papers, grants, or bursaries, are automatically sent out to him. Then he may either mail in his payment or take it in personally to a drop box. Again, this eliminates many lines. -4)Finally, if a first year student, or graduate - student, needs help in deciding courses to register for, their academic advisors can provide them with the necessary information and instruc@on about using the “touch-tone” system. And at the end of ther +erm, a “degreeaudit” is automatically mailed with the student’s marks, so that the student knows which requirements still need to be filled. It’s easy to see this registration system is much faster and much more conservational, since it’s done by a simple phone call! It also provides the information to allow students to plan their timetible .a.found a job, or an extracurricular activity. Implementation cost is also minimal since the system saves on the material costs, and the employee costs associated with the time cow,uming one-toone registration system, and the re-printing of schedules. Waterloo should be more responsible in keeping up with the times. .-.

this, a reader’s last refuge is the letters to the editor page. Even here, the newspapers can k selective in which letters they print and in how they edit the letters. But I believe that it is the very lowest of standards when the editors actually respond to the letters. To me, this is evidence of two things: i) the incredible insecurity of the editors and/or ii) their cornpletelack of respect for their readers. DO they think that we are incapable of judging a letter on its 0~ merits all by ourselves? If the editors feel that they have been misunderstood should they be so easily permitted to “correct” this impression? Certainly if a reader or his/her letter has been misrepresented, it can be difficult for the victims to get their fair access to respond. Imptit appears to be quite fair in letting people state their views, even when they differ from those of the editors. However, Imprint exercises @eat abuse of power by responding to letters to the I editor. . RX instance, in the March 8 edition, Imprint claimed that it was the “onIy student newspaper in the City of Waterloo.” The Imptit editors- were corrected in the next issue by at least two letters. However, the editors then chose to Fespond to the letters ie. get in those important last words (and not very useful ones, at that). If Imprint really was a newspaper and if it really did have any redeeming standards, it would have allowed the readers to draw their own conclusions even ‘if the letters contained factual errors (they did not). This certainly was not the first time that a Ietter has been, responded to, but let’s, hope that it was the last.

Bummed out at the Bomb To the editor, On last Friday afternoon, we arrived at the Bombshelter at approximately 2130 pm. We proceeded to drink pitchers of draught and have a merry time. We were not loud or obnoxious&like others in the crowd, but hey, a St. Patrick’s day celebration is a good time to be loud and obnoxious, At approximately 9:45 pm, my boyfriend decided to call a couple of his friends to see if they were coming to the Bombshelter. He looked for his ID (a passport) to leave at the door while ,he made his phone call, N&being able to find it, he became slightly frantic, since he had just spent $35 on new passport photos, which were inside the passport. Someone suggested see% if it had been turned in. He went to the manager’s office, and thankfully, it had, He sat back down, relieved to have it back in his, possession.’ About five minutes later, the bouncer standing outside the door beside the dance floor summoned him. Jonathan went out to talk to him, and the manager walked in and shut the door on him without saying a word. When one of my friends, who had begn sitting with us, informed me of this, I went up to the manager and asked him why Jonathan had been asked to leave. He replied, “he& been here since this afternoon and has had enough to drink” I proceeded to inquire why me and the 50 or so others, who also had been drinking all afternoon, were not being asked to leave, for which he had no reply. He said that Jonathan had ordered another pitcher, which I denied since I had ordered it, and Jonathan had said he would not be sharing it with me 7 he had stopped drinl&g at around 9 pm. This manager - TIN0 - would also not @ve me his last name upon my request; since that episode, I can now make an educated guess at what it would be (A--E). ’ .

leave; he just wanted to know why. On the contrary, I was the one who was yelling at- the power-tripping manager who even then did not ask me to leave. We can only assume that since Jonathan had last his ID, he was singled out and asked to leave since he had quit drinking, so people waiting in Erie could come in and spend their money. I would like to note that it was the manager TN0 who was rude, and that the bouncer who asked Jonathan to-leave was very polite, probably because he had no understanding of why Jonathan was being thrown out either.

To the editor,

The organizers of Safety First would like to thank the many students, faculty, and staff , members who have worked to help make safety a key issue on the campus. As the recent student executive elections showed, safety has been firmly placed on the student agenda alI candidates for president and viceI&dent identified the safety issue as a . priority in th,& campaigns. The University administration has also responded to demands for increased attention to physical safety on the campus by striking an ad hoc Safety Committee. The Committee’s mandate will be to study the feasibility of safety light& pat&, emergency phones, and education. Our emphasis has always been on the physical redesign of the campus so as to minimize the oppomty for assault. BLG I&, the architectural flrrn that is leading the campusredesign.prms, has asked Safety First for input with regards to safety design principles (such as including safe routes and excluding isolated places) and specific safety cotiiderations (such as lighting and emergency beacons). Meanwhile, the head of library servltes, Murray Shepherd, has asked for ideas on how to impruve security on lib’ r access routes. 7 esearch on this topit b be& carried out

NaYS New Year in March? It is for Iran’ians. * by knwsh Asghanadeh Mehraban Iranian A.mociation

and Omid

The Iranian New Year (Norouz] is always on the first day of spring (March 20 or 21), which marks the first day of the Persian solar year, and corresponds with the’ rebirth of nature. Many of the rituals of this event, the greatest Iranian national festival, are at least 3,000 years old. In popular Persian legend, Norouz was said to have been instituted by the mythical Persian King Yima, or Jamshid. From Achaemenid times onward, Norouz occurred at the vernal equinox, when the sun entered the mdiacal sign of Aries. The festival has always been associated with popular celebrations. Norouz has always been a joyous feast. It is considered an auspicious day for weddings, for conducting commercial transactions, and for travel. After the conquest of Iran by the Arabs in the seventh century AD, the ancient religion of Iran, Zoroastrian&m, was superseded by Islam, the religion of the conquerors. Norouz was not represented in the Muslim calendar, which was based on a lunar year, and for a time, the festival was considered to have been abrogated by Islam. Eventually, however, when the Persians adopted : a hvterodox form of Islam, strenuous efforts were made to associate various events in the Muslim tradition with Norouz. The last Wednesday of the old year has been observed as a special feast, called chabar-shanbeh-sun’. In this occasion, dried thorn *is placed h mmd piles, a few feet apart, and is set on fire. Then for joy that the winter is over, the members of the ho~hokl, and the friends and neighbours who may be present, jump over the piles of bum.@ thorn as theysay, ‘my yellow colour I give to YOU and your red colour you give to me!” On New Year’s Day itself, one should wear new clothes, and should have ready the hajli-sin. This specially arranged new year table traditionally offers seven items beginning with the Persian letter’ “sin,” which corresponds to the English letter Y The Farsi word for seven is ‘%aft” - hence the origin of the phrase ‘haft-sin.” The seven h&t-sin items are sekeh {coin); samanu (an Iranian dish made of flour, sugar, and colourirtg); s&zi (green vegetables); sonbol (hyacinth); seer (garlic); ’ senjec! (a dried fruit); and serkeh (vinegar). Fresh water, a mirror, candles, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt are also placed on the table. A bowl with goldfish is frequently set out since it is considered good luck to look into a bowl of fresh water containing a live goldfish at the start of the new year. Because water represents light, looking into water guarantees that you will have a bright year ahead. The period of the Norouz festivities extends for two weeks, and its end is marked- by the celebration of the 13th day (ruz-e sizdaham). This is a public hoIiday, and on that day, families traditionally take their samovars and rugs out into the countryside to enjoy a picnic. . Although, Norouz has been modernized and Islamicized, it is still basically what is was 25 centuries ago: a celebration of the end of the cold winter months and the beginning of the new life associated with spring.

*“Consciousness-raising wasn’t even a word then, but that’s’ what we were doing” said Jo Dav’is about Voice of Women, a national women’s ace organization that she helped to r ound in 1960. Davis has donated to UW’s Dana Porter Library personal documents illustrating the backL ground of the Canadian women’s movement from il grassroots perspective. These documents can now be accessed in the mre books section of the arts library. The Voice of Women attempted to reach “a new constituency,” she said at a time when women felt alienated from the Ban-the-Bomb movement but still wanted to be involved. The result was “lonely acts of courage” from women all amoss Canada as they voiced their unpopu+ concerns about the atom bomb. The women became citizen experts informing themselves on the Canadian government’s &ions. They also sponsored essay contests for young people trying to excite more concern over the issue. Above all, they were not “preaching to the converted.” Jo Davis severed her ties with the Voice of Women in 1963 when the

Have you ever wondered what would bppn if you refused to dream? How would you react from a visit by the Dream Police? These questions and many more will be answered in the coming production of hunting presented by Starlight Theatre. Lkwning, a musical fantasy, was k&ten by Cheryl Ewing-Croezen and Lindsay Price, and will be presented at the Theatre of the Arts at the University of Waterloo from April 25 to 27, 1991. AU procee’ds from the four performances will go to the Aids Committee of Cambridge, KitchenerWaterloo and Area (ACCKWA}. The play centres around a young girl named Jenny who is afraid to dream. Jenny is visited by the Dream Police, who show her that dreaming and feeling are not wrong, but are necessary in order to live a complete life. Ewing-Croezen, also director of the show, is pleased to put the prod&ion together on behalf of ACCKWA. She hopes that’the prodution will raise awareness about ACCKWA and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome in the Waterloo region. Her cast and crew of over 50 people, who collectively will donate over 6,000 hours to get the show on the stage, share her sentiment. Rehearsals for this production began three weeks ago at a studio over Mu@c Plus in Kitchener. Music Plus is donating the use of the space for the duration of the rehearsals. Starlight Thea& has been in ex& tence since 1986 and was founded to i provide ’ an alternative outlet for( young people interested ti the performing arts. In addition, Starlight has donated all proceeds from every pm duction to a lo& charity. Michael Grit, fundraising coordinator for ACCKWA, is very pleased Star@ht selected his group as the charity for this production. Tickets are now available at the Humanities box office and cost $6 in advance, $8 at the door. There will be four performances, one each evening on April 25-27, plus a matinee on the afternoon of April 27. For more infor- ’ m&on on tickets and the production, please call 741-8300 or 885-4280

Today, women members comprise the majority of many of the global environmental grassroots movements. “Ecofeminism is not an attempt td’ replace patriarchy with matriarchy,” she said, while emphasizing &te need for female representation hi demon-making roles.

Ever since the mathematician and philosopher Rene Descartes declared, ‘9 think, therefore I am,” we have been in a knowledge crisis termed the Cutisian mudblock. In other words, we start with certain knowledge about the self, and how we perceive it, and stop there. We can understand who we are in some hazy concept called the mind, but we draw a line and place the rest of. the world on the other side and call it matter, including our body. This philosophical doctrine has been the basis for modern science over the last 300 years, Classical Newtonian physics, atomic

Descartes would say the former. So when Descartes split the self and the world, we have tended to take the mathematical description as the true, certain reality. But consciousness is *always consciousness of something - the world. Galileo asked us to see the world as if we did not exist. This is one of the teqets of the scientific method: the objective obsenrer,

But at the same time, nxqny writers, philosophers, scientists, and people in gene@ have wondered, Why don’t our experiences of the world always mesh with the beliefs of the world? There are two assumptions working here. First, there is an external world - a world beyond our beliefs and experiences - which is not affected by what we happen to believe about it. Second, we cannot ever make direct contact with the world, only with our ideas, beliefs, and sensations of the world. In fact we can never be sure that we know the world at

Volleyhall

by Rich Nichol hIprid 23porb r . For the second straight year the University of Waterloo Warrior volleyball team has cap tured the bronze medal at the CLAU men’s national volleyball championships, held at hml University in Quebec City this past weekend. This year, however, Waterloo had to work for it even harder. . The Warriors, entering the event as the seventh seed, captured third place in a 3-2 squeaker over the Sherbrooke Vert et Or with game scores of 15-l 1,7-15,15-lO, ll-15, and 15-8. “Just incredible,,” is how UW power hitter and two-time All-Canadian Steve Smith described the team’s efforts. “We had a great tournament. All the guys just came together and it seemed like everything was put behind us, all the bad games that we played and all the losses that we should have won. We came up big and I think we showed a lot of people that we have a good vobeyball program at Waterloo.” Steve’s twin brother Scott paced the attack for the Warriors in the medal win with 32 kills and seven stuff blocks for 39 points. He received Player of the Game honours for his performance. Steve meanwhile, collected 30 points on 22 kills, seven stuff blocks, and one service ace. Junior middle William Zabjek scored 27 points in a defensive role with 12 stuff bIocks, and added 13 kiUs and two aces. The Manitoba Bisons had no problem disposing of the Toronto Varsity Blues in the gold medal match 3-O (15-7, 15-8, 15-7). Toronto thus received the silver medal in the tourna-

ment. Manitoba last won the national championship in 1984-85. Talk about tipsets. The elite teams had dismaLshowings. The no. 1 seeded host Laval Rouge et Or finished the eight-team toumament in sixth, the no. 2 seed Calgary Dinosaurs placed sev@h, and the no. 4 seed Dalhousie Tigers finished eighth overall. After the t&le match, the tournament allstz& were announced and Waterloo’s Smith twins were among the chosen. Scott led all players in the event with 111 points on 95 kills, 14 stuff blocks, and two service aces. The previous Wednesday night at the All- Canadians Banquet, the Warriors were shocked to learn that Scott went unrecognized on the first or second team. So he proved the voters wrong with his performance on the weekend. “Being selected to the all-star team was prc+ bably better than winning an All-Canadian selection,” said Scott Smith ‘Throughout the year everyone has highs and lows and some people only see you play in your lows or only in your highs. But at the CIAUs, everyone sees you play. If you play well for three matches and get picked, it’s that much more specialbecauseyou areplayingwith a lot of pat All-Canadians.” Steve achieved his second consecutive ClAU championship all-star team selection by accumulating 80 points (67 kills, 10 stuff blocks, and three aces). Zabjek finished the tournament in the top -three in stuff blocks with 29‘oh 128 attempts. Joining the Smiths on the all-star team were three other power hitters, Sherbrooke ju.n@ Christian mviere, McMaster freshman Mike Cwupka, and Toronto senior Edgar Lueg, along with Manitoba fifth-year setter Dale Iwanoczko. Manitoba power hitter Steve Welch took to umament MVP honours. ‘This summer, Steve Smith will try out for the national team, of which he has been a member tir the past two years, However, he .

In the consolation f&I, the fifth-seeded McMaster Marauders defeated Lava1 (15-7, 15-6, 13-15, 15-12) for fifth place overall, whiIe the hosts finished sixth. Calgary (no. 2) swept fourth-seeded Dalhousie 3-O (15-4,1510,154) to capture the tournament’s seventh rank. Therefore, Dalhousie finished last in the field of eight. The Warriors started the nationals in a quarter-finals bout with Calgary Dinosaurs. Well, it ended up with the familiar scenario of David beating Goliath. In a gutsy come-from-. behind performance, the seventh-seeded Warriors upet the no. 2 iranked mos 3-2. And the sweetest thing about the win was that Waterloo, on the brink of defeat after drQp ping the first two games 16-14 and 15-10, pulled together to tin the last three 115”7,156, and 15-11. The most priceless moment in the match was at the end when CIAO Player of the Year Tom Elser served m&h point into the net for Waterloo. Earlier in the game, he took a Steve Smith spike off the old bean and had to sit for five minutes. “Game 2 was the worst @me we’ve played ‘all year,” said UW head coach Scott Shantz. “Then to turn it all around, our .players reached way down inside and reaUy showed scum guts to come back like that” Shantz retxfled that this was the first time Waterloo had beaten Calgary “m over 11 years, since the ~arrl’s en=@ him Steve Smith tqqxd Waterloo’s score sneet with 28 points un 24 kib, two aces# ltfad two stuff blocks, plus 23 digs and four recovtrries, receiving player-of&-e honi#us.

with 12,10, and 9 digs respectively. Martins, the team captain and starting setter, had a setting accuracy of 94 per cent in the match. Zabjek added 15 points, including a team high eight stuff blocks, and four recoveries. But Waterloo’s win wasn’t the only surprise in the opening round. Laval, the defending champion, was shocked by Sherbrooke in a three game sweep (15-10, 15-8, 15X!),. and Toronto upset Dalhousie 3-2 (ll-15,15-3,815, 16-14, 15-13). Manitoba was the ody favorite to win, beating McMaster 3-O (15-8, 15-13,x-14). The Warriors’ semi-final opponent turned to be the same as at last year’s nationals, Manitoba. And, once again, Waterloo’s old nemesiS prevailed 3-1, with nail-biting game scores of 15-13,8-15,15-12, and 16-14. But the mighty Plague didn’t go down without a fight. The match took two-and-ahalf hours to complete only four games. At times, there were over 12 sideouts between ‘points ‘That was a well fought match and it could have gone @ther way,” said S+mtz. ‘They (Manitoba) were up 6-l in Game 4 and we rallied back for 10 straight points to make it ‘11-6.

In the consolation semi-finals, Calgary was upset once again, this time by McMaster 3-l (15-l 1, 14-16, 15-4, 15-12), while Laval disposed of Dalhousie 3-l (16-14, 15-13; l3-15,15-9).

Despite the momentum generated by a hometown cfowd and a scoreboard advantage for most of the game, the hockey warriors could not close the door on the Tmis-Rivieres Patriotes. They had their hopes of an 0UA.A championship dashed last Saturday night at the Columbia Icefield. The PWioteS rallied late in games 1 and 2 to defeat the Warriors 5-3 in Trois-Ritieres last Thursday and 5-2 at the Icefield and sweep the best-ofthree series and claim their first Queen’s cup ever. The Warrio= can stiIl avenge the l&s when both teams participate in the Nationals this weekend at Varsity Awna in Toronto.

While it% WaterIoo’s first trip to the Nationals in 17 years, Trois-Rivieres is no stranger to the country-wide final. They were defeated by Laurier - in the semi-finals last year and won the event in the 198687 season. The Patriotes were amalgamated into the Ontario league aIong with McGill and Concordia four years ago aftex their Quebec league was disbanded. McKee stressed that goaltending as usual, will lx critical in Toronto. ‘7 think the key component is goaltending” said McKee. “When you go to the Nationals, it’s been proven over and over, whoever has the best goaltender will most liiely win the series. I think both Trois-Rivieres and ourselves have excellent goaltending and it’s going to be how those guys prepare themselves for next weekend and what they can do. I think Trois-Rivieres has a bit more firepower than we do.. . but I believe we’ve got rwork ethic and desire and that will show for US.”

VanKoughnett polishes of banner year with CIAU rookie hardware Warrior

Basketball

by Rich Nicbol Imprint sports There’s bne thing Waterloo varsity basketball enthus:iasts have got to ask after watching freshman star Sean VanKoughnett light up the woreboard this season. Is there a limit to this man’s potential? . Capping off a banner year, the lean six-foot-seven, 180-pound swingman received the highest honour for a bt-year player, the. Canadian [nterunivetiity Athletic Union’s rookie of the year, at the AllCanadian’s Banquet last Thursday in Halifax. 5 “It is really nice to be recognized,” said the elated VanKoughnett. “I couldn’t really ask for more.” This marks the first time a Waterloo layer has received the award. VanL ghnett also became the first Freshman ever to win the Ontario Universities Athletic Associatitin’s West Division scoring championship,

amassing 21.7 points per game over the 1990-91 campaign. He made a late season surge to capture the title, scoring 27 points against McMaster and 49 points in the Warriors’spectacuIar home-court upset of the no. 1 ranked,,Westem Mustangs to round out league play. Adding to his list of accolades, VanKoughnett was given OUAA and CIAU athlete of the week recognition that week. The foilowing we&, -he drained 40 points in Waterloo’s quarter-final loss to BlXKk. Vtioughnett’s 49-point outbtimt established a school record for most points in a regular season game. The late great Mike Moser holds the alltime UW record for individual points in a game at 53, set in a bronze medal game at’ the 1974 CIAU charnpionships. VanKoughnett’s &or show was just one point short of the OUAA league mark of 50 set in 1982 by York’s David Coulthard, in a battle with Toronto. . Warrior skipper Don McCrae in an interview at the end of the season VanKuughnett as, . described “tremendously consistent. He

opened up with 33 points and finished with 49 and 40 point efforts, a bon&de aIl-&ar. He makesit easier for me to coach.” After his senior year at Bluevale Collegiate in Waterloo, VanKwughnett received offers from scouts at over three dozen American I colleges “If I went down to a lot of the schools in the States, it’s a good possibility I wouldn’t get a lot of playing time my first couple of years,” explained VanKoughnett. ‘The reason why 1 play basketball is to do just that, play basketball. Unless you’re going to make the NBA, I don’t really see it as a great advantage going down there. I just want to have as much fun as possible and that involves getting as much playing time as possible. I don’t regret my decision at all.“ And if fun is correlated with playing time, VanKoughnett must have had a ball this past year. He logged an A rare moment when Sean ii&t average of 36 minutes on the court in each 40 minute game.

In the rock’em sock’emworld of ice hockey, the Leafs have already renewed their golf and country club memberships, the Warriors are com-

pethg for the National title, and the men’s Ice Hockey Champions here at UW are being decided this week. In the “A” League, the undefeated Worriers (not Wtiors) look like strong contenders, as do the Arctic Tundra who are trying to repeat as champs. In the “B” League, St. Jerome’s College and the Aces both finished with perfect 5-Q records and the remaining three teams rounding out in the top five are Dynamo, Shapely Buttocks, and Mech’s Calibur. In firit round play, the Chiefs took over the tide of dragon slayers (from the Richmond Spiders) by upsetting the no. 1 SJC $&in overtime. This leaves the door wide open for any team to take the crown. Finally, in ‘the “Non-Contact”.

.-The Eleventh- untitl-ed’ Dream For the new record, Lived to Tell, all the band members contributed songwriting and then brought it all together. “There’s a lot more variety on this re,cord, We have a sax on one song - now, I usually hate horns, but this one has a sort of wild, freeform sound to it. There’s also an acoustic song that, ends the albuh.” This is’ indeed a departure for the usually staunchly hard rock Dream Day.

by Derek We% Imprint staff Chicago’s Eleventh Drearh Day gained some serious attention last year with their fabbo major-label debut I&H. Their bristling, meIodic guitar rock doesn’t sound all that different from many other bands, except for their mastery of that magical thing called the chord change. So now, it’s a year later and they’re touring in support of a brand-new LP called Liv4d ~CJ Tell. Rick Rizzo, founder, vocalist, gUarist, gave us a calI from Boston, where the band had just played for two nights.

-

Rizzo tends toward suspicion of an overly-produced sound: “I sort of equate that idea with a sold-out sound.” On Lived to ??ll, as on alI their records, Eleventh Dream Day sought to capture “that live sound, and make it really dynamic.” Accordingly, the entire album was recorded in only “six or seven days. We’ve never had the month or two months that some bands’ have to make a record.”

They also tried something different by literally recording in a barn. “We used a mobile recording unit, the same one that we used for Beti, but we had to put electricity in (the barn)

Eleventh Dream Day ‘formed in Chi6ago in 1983, but have little connection to what was going on in that city at the time. Says Rick, “Janet (Beveridge Bean, drummer and cofounder) and ! were both from a Kentucky background, so we were away from the Chicago scene when Big Black and Nakd Raygun were starting. But it was a good scene; there were a lot of place$ to play, and radio picked up on us pretty well. In Chicago you’re not under the extreme scrutiny you would be in LA or New York” And has fhe Chicago scene changed in the past eight years ok so? ‘“yeh, it’s gotten b&r.

In the past (oh, how I long f6r those days), one could always reasonably expect a turn of phrase, a pull on the lyrical leg, to dissipate the leaden sadness which seemed to characterisea much of his music. Though the :musicians, led by guitarist Mark E Nevin of Fairground Attraction, create a satisfying swish and tinkle behind him, Morrissey is too lost in his bitterness and selfcommiseration to notice. Once upon a time, Morrissey twisted self-pity into something more worthwhile - “I dreamt about you last night, and I fell out QE bed twice” (“Reel around the Fountain”) - but now, there are no hooks buried in the bait - “WonZ somebody stop me from thinking all the time about everything so deeply so bleakly” (“Our Frank’?.

The lyrics are sexually orientated but are rather ordinary and lack - ori*lity in their effort to arouse the audience. This band is frdm Australia, but sound noth.+g like any other band from their native country. I can see this tape being shelved in the section of other less than mediocre huline Olthof bands who have nothing original to offer their audiences. It’llbe lost in the Imprint staff shuffle of other bands much more worthy of attention. From the moment I turned on’ this lzt’s put it this way, I would not. tape I didnrt like it.

I must confess that I amnot too familiar with Great White, but after giving this tape a cou le of spins, they’ve got me Hook J (pardon the lame attempt at a pun). As a matter of fact, this 104rack’gem is about the best rock album I’ve heard since Def Lepparas Hysmiu. Great White toured with Ozzy Osboume in WSS during his ultimate Sin Tour and received rave reviews. Since then, Great White has wwned a couple of singles, including the gold release “Once Bitten,” and then this hitpacked LP, all of which have had their fair share of airplay on the-mighty Q.

_

stringthens the various vocal talents displayed by Rus;selL I also noticed that Great White has probably set a record for album credits. In no less than two cassette pages, they thank everyone from Dick Clark and Alice C&per to “wivgand girls who supported us in one way or in many others,” and hey, even their own wives. Hmmm. Another bonus of this release is the cover itself, displaying an interesting thalassic figure clutching a treblehook, which is fully revealed when you fold out the cassette sleeve. While listening to this album, you get the impression that Great White must have had a ball recording it. And they11 be partying it up all the more when it turns gold. And that will be only a matter of weeks. .

Stetsasonic, Brooklyn’s ‘%+-hop band,“seem to have a different way of going about things. They employ a and are probably the _ a live drummer only crew who credit James Brown when they sample him. The innova; tion of two members, DJ (Professor) Prince Paul and Daddy-O, has been evident in a wide variety of projects, from Living Colour to De la Soul. This innovation remains the driving force behind Stetsasonic’s expert treatment of new school hiphop iSSUeS.

by’KentonAug#mjm Impriat staff The self-titled debut release from Havana 3 AM marks the return of exClash bassist Paul Simonon to the music scene- Simonon last appeared on Cti The Crap in 1985 and reportedly spent his hiatus painting while Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, and Top per Headon resurfaced with other projects. In The Clash, Simonon took a backseat to the Stntmmer/Jones songwriting team. The only composiforgot it was on, you probably wouldn’t even notice. The lead

tion of his to make their greatest hits compilation wap ‘TheGuns Of Brixton”Havana 3 AM proves to be a better vehicle for Simonon to express him&f lyrically, as he co-wrote all 12 songs on this album with Nigel Dixon and Gary My& 4 Havana 3 AM have a raw, crisp sound that is deluged with Mexican influences and slightly tinged with rockabilly. ‘Death In The Afternoon” and the instrumental “Hey Amigo”. best exemplify the former, while “Blue Motorcycle Eyes” and “Blue Gene Vincent” have lead singer Dixon striving to h Gene Vincent A garage band type of energy per‘meates Havana 3 AM and gives the impression that a live performance would be explosive. The lyrics for ‘The Hardest Game,” “What About Your .Future,” and the first video, “Reach ’ The Rock” indicate a knowledge of street life and its hardships. “Hole In The Sky” reflects another level of social consciousness as it tackles the ozone layer issue. Havana 3 AM have put forth a very * promising‘debut that, at times, makes it difficult to refute the claii that “this is what Mick and Joe should be doing.”

Stetsasomc rap about ghetto thangs and gettin’ the party started equally well and it really shows on this project. Plus, with cuts like ‘Don’t Wrik a Cheque That Your Ass Can’t . Cash,” it’s apparent that they’re also keeping “one in the chamber.” 4 This is a strong album most of the way around. Paul’s choice of R&B, funk, and jazz grooves surprise the listener with a sneaky intensity that is augmented with DBC sampling. Daddy-O, MC Wise, and MC Delite interplay almost too well, and one can picture them bustin’ freestyles all over Bob Van Winkle’s sneering mug.

There are weak moments-on this album, though. “Speaking of a Girl Named Suzy” is a needless track about a groupie who’d do almost anythingtobe Stetsacized, and somehow hails their asses out - of trouble. “Walkin’ in the Rain” proves that soft and romantic (say that with your best R&do Montalban accent) rap is better left to spAas Eke LL Cool J and MC Household Tool. Not helping matters is a guest spot by the Force MDs, who must have had some sort of contractual thang with Tommy Boy. The day is saved with “Free South A&@” dropping both science and geography. This is an album that truly stands for Peace, Unity, Love and Having Fun It will keep new school fans happy and could possibly convert a few as well. Peace!

During their stay at Motown, the writing team of brothers Eddie and Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier, collectively known as HollandDozier-Holland, wrote a string of phenomena1 pop-soul hits, including “Stop! In the name of Love,” “I Can’t Help Myself,” ‘Where Did Our hve Go?,” and ‘How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You) l ” During e three-year stretch in the mid-sixties, HollandDozier-Holland wrote and produced 28 top-20 pop hits. As the decade drew to a close, they felt the assembly-line approach of Motown hitmaking choking their ambition and vision, and the three left to form their own recording organization: HDH proSuctions. There were actually two sub-labels contained within HDH: Hot Wax and Invictus. Artists signed to Hot Wax included Honey Cone (“Want Ads”) and Freda Payne (“Band of Gold”), while 8th Day, Glaqs House, and Chairmen of The Boardrecorded for Invictus. During its few prodigious ygars, the HDH organisation succeeded in mating fdl-bodied Detroit-style arrangements with more gospelly vocds than had been used before. Essentially, they took the formula which they had perfected at Motown, and expanded it to be both more sophisticated and more soui.fuL In doing so, they%crafted a distinctive, influential sound - and released a heap of great singles and a f&w quality albums. Recently, along‘ with their superb reissues of classic Stax soul material, Fantasy records has released a few compilations of material from HDH’s golden 1969-1972 era. The first two are greatest hits packages from HDH groups which featured two of the greatest voices that ~0.~1 music has produced: Chairmen of the Board’s Genera1 Norman Johnson and 100 Proof (Aged in Soul)‘s Steve Mancha. Of the two, General Johnson’s was by far the more distinctive - his vibrato-laden, hiccuping tenor remains one of the strangest and most unique sounds imprinted on vinyl. Though his earlier recordings with The Showmen put his voice front and centre, only on Chairmen of the Board recordings did his voice find its full, mature glory. The Chairmen’s firstthree singles are as fine a soul/pop confection as was ever-conceived; “Give Me Just a Little More Time,” “Dangling on a String,” and, my personal favorite, “Everything’s Tuesday.” It is appropriate that Genera1 Johnson now earns his keep working the Beach Music scene in the Carolinas, because this music, and his voice, have always sounded iike sunny days and warm weather. The one sore point of this collection is the non-incIusion of “Working on a Building of Love,” the finest track to come from their last couple of albums. While 100 Proof’ (Aged in Soul) didn’t possess the same measure of sunny catchine& of Chairmen of the Board, it was more than baIan?ed out by the hard-edged souIfulness of

The revolution of bebop that formed modern jazz in the ’50s was produced by several individual talents coming at the music from different perspectives. * While Charlie Parker was a great proponent’of bop, he was not the only. In the early fifties, Lennie Tristan0 began teaching an approach to jazz that stressed the ear rather than sheer mechanical ability and spontaneous, open-ended improvisation. of his more influential pupils was Lee Konitz, an alto saxophone @layer. Konitz trained under Tristan0 in Chicago so heavily that he was one of the very few tix players in his generation not overwhelmed by Parker. His distinct playing is characterized by extremely long lines, with irregular, but not strong accents and a thin deliberate tone. While strong in the East, he made an interesting contribution to what is sometimes called West Coast jazz. Gerry Mulligan, a baritone saxophonist and arranger, had gigged with the Miles Davis band-in 1948, playing and writing for the p;roup. He became one of the few white players to really understand hop without watering it down. In 1952, he took this knowledge with him to the WestCoast where he -formed a very popular quartet that included Chet Baker. Despite its popularity, though, it only lasted a year. During this time, this quartet gave definition to the West Coast sound, a sound captured on Pacific Jazz’s “Konitz Meets Mulhgan.” Sitting in with the quartet, Konitz adds something to make this a v&y i~~teresting disc. The first pack, ‘Too Marvelous for Words,” plays mellow, but tiot wimpy. The brushes on the drums, breathy sax and Baker’s dreamy trumpet conspire to relax you without insulting you. Unlike the tension that existed in hop with speed and contrgst between the different solo instruments; Kohitz’&~d Mulligm are soothing, light and airy in a-quick snappy rhythm It is a shame that this quality treatment of Coast jazz did not continue in the movement as a whole, but this can be expected from a form * which is so seti-limiting from the very beginning. The highlights of the disc appear on “Broadway,” ‘tidy Be Good,” and Mulligan’s own “Sextet.” On “Sextet,” hard hop is filleted and refined for easy consumption. This is in fact one of the problems with Coast jazz; it went the route of the big band sound of the ’40s and became melodically and rhythmically predictable for greater access to the genera1 public. The irsluence of this sound made its way into both Dave Brubeck’s work, where he elaborated on the use of time, and is still heard strongly in Vince Guaraldi’s work today, both of which well look at another time in more depth. A brief glance at the record store these days is enough to dismay any budding jazz fan, but hang in there. An example of something to avoid is Herb Alpert’s new album, “North on South Street.” Alpert has always been to j& what crushed black velvet has been to art and this baby is no exception. The entire album is filled with the tired rhythm tracks of early ’80s house with intermittent bursts from Herb-baby. The entire affair is a let down to both jazz and house music fans, there being not much there to satisfy anybody. Lcan’t tell you what some of the tracks sound like individually because they sound so much alike and so had. But you can bet you11 hear this one at the mega-store near you as you push down the a&s looking for those herring snacks. A real stinker.

James Keelaghan, Ferron, and Connie Kaldor have joined forces in a rare colIaborative tour of North America that will see Waterloo as the venue for one of only three appearances in untario. James Keelaghan took a little tii out of his hectic schedule to chat a bit about the tour, the new album, and Garnet Rogers. Would you believe he even found enough time to squeeze in a wee hiitory lesson?

I: Gamer KogW3 ?xxotit4 one of your balla& ‘&nny Byte. ” Can you tell me how thb came about and subsquently a$ectad your cmw? J: Well thisis a perfect exampIe of the folk process. It was 1984 and they were having a number of concerts leading up to the Calgary Folk F;estivaI. One of them was alittle Scottish gui by the name of Hamish Imlach, and I was doing the set in between Hamish’s two sets, Somebody from the Folk Festival that was sponsoring the concert, got a hold of Garnet and said ‘WelI, you have to come down and hear this young fellow.” So Garnet came in and he listened to the set, and Jenny Bryce was one of the songs that he heard. He came up to me afterward and said that he’d really like to do that song. We met that weekend at the Edmonton Folk Festival, which at that time ran at the same time as Calgary. He brought his tape recorder up to my hotel room and got it down on tape and the rest is history, as they say. I: So Jama, are you working on a nau album? J: Well, we’re working on the rnatetil for it. I’ve got about eight of the songs down and about another four or five cooking. So, we’re looking at some pre-production in May and perhaps recording in September, with a new producer. I: I’ve notic& that you ‘ve helped out on Stephen Feaying ‘s Out to Sea album.

Have you contributed on any oher albu??ts? J: The Margaret Crystal album, Lmking Towads Home, I was on that. I’m sort of putting my fingers in with a tiouple of local artists here, doing some producing. 1: Just be$ore I let you go, I’ve noticed that your publicity biography has you saturatedin h&tory, with apenchantfor, and 1 quote, 3toria told ‘mund the din ner fable.” Now I know it’s eady out them, but do you have any stun-m you could tell ‘Found the breakf~ rablc ? ” J: Heh, heh (bemusedly). Well, I’ve got one that is being worked on about a fellow by the name of John Coroliere. He’s a regimental drum major in one of the King of France’s regiments that were here when Quebec was still part of the French Empire. As a drum major, he had a very high status job which gave him a lot of standing in the community; he was living in Montreal at the time with his regiment. There had just been a law passed which outlawed duelling, and unfortunately, Coroliere didn’t pay much attention. Both he and another drum major from another regime?! got into a fight in a tavim zind stepped outside to settle it with a duel, and they were both promptly arrestedand they were both given six months in prison. There sits Coroliere in this prison from the 1700s. It has big thick walls and thin grates, so there is no contact with other prisoners. At the same time theye was a woman arrested named Lisir,Pa~~ette.~She had been arrested for stealing some silverware from the house of her master and

Street

mistress and was sentenced to death. 1: Oh. (a cold shiver running up and dbwn my spine). J: Anyway, she was put in the cell next to CaroIiere and over the six months, the two of them kept up a rather heated conversation, never seeing each-- other, but talking through the wall. At that time in France, there were &ree ways to get out of the death penalty. One was commutation from the king another was commutation from the governor, and the third way to get out of it was to marry the hangman Quebec, at that time had lost its hangman the year before and had not replaced it, so over the course of six months, L&e convinces Coroliere to give up everything give up his status, become the hangman and marry her, thereby commuting the death sentence. He performed his duties for about a year, and then the two of them disappeared, never to be heard from again. And that is my historical tale for the day. * 7icketsfor the upcoming show at the Humanities Theatw can be purchased at the box oflee in Hagey Hall and I%vident Bookstore in - the Unive&y Shops Plaza II.
