The Federation of Students have decided to postpone the referendum on whether or not Waterloo will pull out of the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) until February 11 and 12, 1992, from the previously planned dates of November 26 and 27 of this year. The Federation executive received approval for the change in dates from 14 of the 26 Student Councillors by telephone last Wednesday, October 9. They sent a letter to OFS Chairperson Laurie Kingston informing her of the change, citing fiscal reasons: “the costs of sending campaiagn material and ballots to our co-op students is between $3,000 and $4,000.” The Feds will also kiIl two birds with one stone, since February 1 I and 12 are the dates of the election of the Federationi executive.

Fight the epidemic by Robin Kalbfleisch special to Imprint

Women and AIDS and the issues surrounding the epidemic was the topic of discussion last Sunday afternoon at a lecture given by American singer-songwriter Holly Near. The event was part of AIDS Awareness Week, which was recognized kor the first time as a national event. Across Canada, the week of October 6-13 was set aside to promote a variety of programs and events designed to encourage education and awareness about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Holly Near, 42, has recorded 15 albums on her own Iabel, Redwood Records, and continues a stage, film, and television career that began over 20 years ago, Fiercely dedicated to the protection of human rights and the promotion of world peace and understanding. Near has been actively involved in a wide variety of. political and social movements, including the fight against AIDS. Near began Sunday’s lecture by offering

an

insi@ful

look

at the

challenges that we face as we deal with the reality of a crisis that is as big and as misunderstood as AIDS. According to Near, the key to understanding the issues surrounding AIDS is the ability to be highly

sensitized to diversity. Clearly, AIDS is a disease which cannot be defined on the basis of age, sex, clasS, or sexual preference. In order to move forward in the fight against this disease, we must get rid of the notion that it affects the gay men’s community only. As well, we have to realize that there are a number of economic and social factors which have contributed to the spread of the disease. Fur example,

AiDS is presently

the

number one cause of death for poor women of colour in New York City. Because these women cannot afford to take time off work, or pay a babysitter to watch their children, they rarely visit the doctor. By the time they

actually seek medical attention it is usually too late. Worse yet, doctors often do not think to test women for AIDS, as many symptoms of the disease may be attributed to other more common medical problems. Therefore, to develop the most effective AIDS prevention and awareness programs, policy makers need to look at the whole picture. Presently, the problem is that these programs are developed based on a white, middle-class perspective of the disease. As a result, many groups, such as prostitutes and drug abusers, are falling through the cracks. Holly Near remains optimistic, however, that there is a lot that can be done, particularly at the coinmunity level, to raise awareness about AIDS and to provide those necessary services that are not readily available. In New York City for example, members of a senior citizens group make meals, do grocery shopping and laundry and look after pets for people with AIDS. In conclusion, Near urged the audience to be persistent. After working for nearly 25 years for a variety of advocacies and coalitions, she

remains a firm believer in the the power of the human race to rise to the occasion. Given the serious nature of the AIDS crisis, let’s hope that we can live up to the rhallenge.

Purchase df the former “‘B.F. Goodrich” buiiding, located at 195 Columbia Street is effective November 1, but BFG wilI continue to use about a quarter of the building’s space for <another two years. The 36,50Osquare-foot building, with just over two acres of property, contains offices, laboratories and warehouse space. AIan George, UW’s Vice-President Academic and Provost, said no decision has been made yet on which departments will move into the building. Space is at a premium, he said, as several departments currently have to use portable buildings. “We are severely congested on campus,” George said. “The university has a number of portables and we have a steady stream of requests for additional ones.” The building cost $2.8 million, paid for out of the university’s $5.&million capital fund. George said it was far cheaper to purchase a building needing few renovations than to construct a new one. John Leddy, UW Federation of Skdents President, refused to vote in favour of the purchase at the University’s Building and Properties Committee meeting because he suspects the space wilI be used as administrative, rather than teaching space.

“I believe that there are other more important priorities that are directly student related,“Leddy said. “I do noI deny that administrative space is congested, but at this teaching; institution, student space, like classrooms, should be given a higher priority, I just hope that if we ever build a student centre here on campus, there will be the same sort of dollars available from the administration.” Other news from last wkek$ board of governors meeting includes UW’s burgeoning enroIlment, 5 per cent higher this fall than projected. The science faculty must absorb the largest jump at 30 per cent, while both arts and environmental stuares were up 9 per cent. At the B~G,~Associate Provost Alan George described predicting first-year enrollment as an imprecise science, saying that such factors as diverse as Waterloo’s improving and the economic reputation downturn can easily skew the numhers of first-year students from what was expected. When deciding how many students they want, programs musl try to estimate the “take rate,” George said. This rate is the percentage of applicants who will accept Waterloo’s invitation over those of other institutions.

Esperanza by Katha Cove-Shannon SpeciaI to Imprint In El Salvadoi, community organizations are the life support systems for the majority of the people. Community organizations, such as women’s groups, trade unions, afid church groups offer the El Salvadoran people basic necessities as well as security. They offer support for the people, and a chance to work together to better their lives. Yet, any &Ii&ion with a communiv organization could mean death. For the past 11 years, the govemment of El Salvador - a military dictatorship - has been waging war against the people of El Salvador. Especially since 1989, ‘the popular movement - a term used to collectively describe community organizations - has been a main target for the government’s army and death squads. Anyone trying to improve the standard of living of the people - for example, a women’s group trying to get taxes lower on food since children are already malnourished - will face being put on a death list. The popular movement has become a refuge for those people

threatened

by the govem-

merit. The -in organized faction against which the government is fighting is the Farabundo Marti National L&eration Front (FMLN) which was organized in response to the dictatorship. Through the yea-, they have secured land in northern El Salvador. The ongoing war has devastated the entire country economically and environmentally. Recently, however, the people of El Salvador have been given real hope. On September 25,1991, the govemmerit

signed

an

impurh-tt

ecorkomic

and political agreement with the FMLN in which the armed forces will be reduced in number and purged of human rights violators. F6ILN combatants will be permitted to enter a new d&an

police force, and a band

b

+

reform will be instituted. A National Committee for the Consolidation 01 Peace (COPAY), made up of FMLN, government, and popular movemenl representatives, will oversee the implementation of the accord. The war, however, is still ongoing. A ceasefire negotiation between the Salvadoran government and the FMLN started on October 12, but the death threats and disappearances continue in the meantime. Although real hope for peace is more apparent now than it has been for the 11 years of war, there is a fair distance to go before the Salvadoran people can ‘safely start rebuilding their lives. An organization in Canada, called Esperanza (which means “hope” in Spanish), works in affiliation with the popular movements in El Salvador. Esperanza provides moral, material, and economic support to community-based organizations, providing aid for community projects decided upon and organized by communities in El Salvador. Esperanza has set up an Urgent Action letterwriting network, placing fax machines in several places in El Salvador. This means that information of injustices can be immediately sent to Canada so that Canadians can respond quickly with faxes and letters to the Salvadoran and Canadian governments asking that these injustices be stopped. Esperanza also organizes tours in which Canadians can go to El Salvador and meet with members of the popular movement. Salvadorans are also brought to Canada to speak .and meet with community organizations here in Canada. This provides an opportunity for greater understanding between our two countries. If you are interested in jo&g EspeEinZa Or if you just want to learn more about what is happ&g h a

Salvador, come to the meeting on October 16 at 7 pm in Campus Centre MA. For more information, call MMCO at the Global Community Centre, 746-4090.

Green

Week working for social justice in this year’s “Green Week” activities. We hope that our “Green Week” itinerary will challenge all of us to more deeply examine the ways in which the choices we make in our personal and political lives often have complex and far-reaching environmental consequences. The goal of this year’s “Green Week“ is to address environmental issues from various perspectives. WPIRG plans to include contributions from members of the University and Waterloo-area communities and, at the same time, to educate and encourage action in the name of ecological sanity within the same broad milieu. WPIRG’s “Leaf Turning Days” will include speakers, audio-visual presentations, displays, and panel discussions. The planning of “Not Another Green Week” is currently under way, however, and with one month remaining there is much that needs to be done. The involvement of students in planning is an essential step toward achieving our goals There will be a meeting for anyone who is interested in being involved in “Green Week” preparations on Wednesday, October 16, at 4:30 pm, in room 138A of the Campus Centre. If you would like to participate in the planning and implementation of “Not Another Green Week,” please feel free to contact Scott Marratto at the WPIRG office, ext. 2578 or 8849020.

byBryan Smyth special to Imprint On October 2, a small group of people, mainly UW students, protes:ed outside Kitchener Memorial Auditorium where Preston Manning, leader of the Reform Party of Canada, was scheduled to speak. The crowd was concerned that the attention directed at the Reform Party recently was failing to suppIy an accurate picture of how this party would behave were it to form a government. “Canadians are only ge&g half the story,” said protestor Scott Minz; “It sounds fine to calI for a balanced budget, but talk is cheap. If they really intend to fight the deficit by closing hospitals, slashing UK while increasing unemployment through public service layoffs, then they ought to just say so/ According to their handbook of pdicies and principles, the Reform Party would not support universal social programs nor universal childcare. They would back out of providing Unemployment Insurance, and make transfer payments for health care unconditional so that these may be used for other projects (deficit reduction, for example). Also, they call for the sacking of thousands of civil servants. “No working Canadian is drawn to the Reform Party’s fiscal program,” Andrew Cowan told a group entering the Auditorium. “If the Tories tried to sell those policies, they’d be even more despised than they already are. No, the appeal of Reform lies elsewhere.” At the time of its founding in 1987, the chief concerns of the Reform Party were Senate reform, regional economics, and to a lesser extent, language policy. The Meech Lake Accord (MLA) was signed that same year, with the “distinct society” clause virtually unnoticed. The only worry was about the ‘balkaniz+tion” of Canad;.

It was not until the Supreme Court struck down Quebec’s Bill 101, leading to a resusence of large-scale nationalist sentiment on the streets of ’ Qubec - which led in turn to Premier Bourassa invoking the “notwithstanding” clause to pass Bill 178 - that the public debate around the MLA changed. A hysterical reaction swept English Canada, as “distinct society” came ‘to mean the oppression of anglophones. Only then did fringe parties like the Reform Party and the Confederation of Regions Party (OR) begin to grow considerably. “The Reform Party today is thoroughly tainted with anti-Quebec bigotry,” Mintz said. ‘They owe their rise to the widespread belief that the problem with the Tories is that they are soft on Quebec.” The protesters drew links between the Reform Party’s position on Quebec and their other controversial policies, those regarding immigration and multiculturalism. “Nationalism in English Canada has made Quebec-bashing a respectable racism. This opens the door for more virulent policies,” according to Cowan. Not too long ago, the Reform Party was openly calling for an end to ‘Third World” immigration. This has been toned down to opposition to any immigration policy that would

PRESTO! photo by Joanne Sandrin “radically or suddenly alter the ethnic makeup of Canada.” Since the Reform Party’s “new of Canada treats even model” Quebec as a “special interest group,” it is not surprising that they oppose all government support for multicultural programs. Groups can freely promote their ethnicity, their policies read, but the Reform Party stands for the “integration of immigrants to Canada into the mainstream of Canadian life.” Hyphenated Canadianism is opposed as a federal policy, but according to many of those attending’ Manning’s speech, it is an opposed “Why these practice. can’t immigrants understand that we want them to be Canadians, plain and simple. Don’t they see the problems they’re causing?“, in the words of one Reformer. The protestors also criticized the Reform Party’s policies for their

Seven days of focusing; on issues pertaining to the environment makes one week, and so if you are saying to yourself, “not another green beck!“, you would be absolutely right. UW’S second annual “Not Another Green Week” is fast approaching, Starting November 11, the clubs and societies of UW will kick off this year’s “Not Another Green Week” with presentations and displays. From Wednesday, November 13 to November 16, the Saturday, Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) will host a series of presentations on campus, local, and global issues related to water, forests, and waste management. energy, WPIRG”’ “Leaf Turning Days” will focus on the ways in which issues r&ted to ecology are connected with a broad range of other issues that arise in contemporary society. The coincidence of social injustice and environmental degradation is not a chance occurrence, but rather they must be seen as part of a general social malaise that threatens the future of life on our planet. It is precisely with the intent of shedding light on this interconnectedness of issues, and the resultant need for an integrated analysis and action, that WPIRG is seeking to involve the voices of native peoples, women, young people, and those effects on the gains achieved by the woman’s movement and the gay rights movement. They recognize the family as “the very foundation of organized society,” and not only do they oppose day-care, but also explicitly call upon the family to make up the difference if they get the chance to slash social services. “Their programs wouId rely upon a stable family-unit,” says M&z, “which has always required massive propaganda campaigns, as well as assaults on the rights of women to live independent lives, and assaults on the rights of lesbians and gay men to live and love otlenlv.” Though this‘ proiest was small, it involved a diverse group of people who see that the Reform Party has atready pulled Canadian politics to the right by defining certain issues. “None of the other parties will challenge them,” Cowan and Mintz agreed, “and that’s why we’re here tonight.“

sits in Waterloo by Jay Shorten special to Imprint Do you. think you could run the country better than Brian Mulroney? Are you a better orator than Jean Chretien? Are your ideas fresher than Audrey Mclaughlin’s? Are you more mysterious than Preston Manning? Do you have more charisma than Lucien Bouchard? In other words, are you politically frustrated because all your friends want to do is watch Roseanne? You have two options: a) watch Roseanne, or b) participate in the UW Model Parliament. Option b is much more exciting. The Model Parliament is a simulation of the House of Commons, in which students representing the political parties produce, present, and debate bills with their peers. Possible topics for this year include: parliamentary reform, multiculturalism/bilingualism, free trade with Mexitio, Aboriginal affairs, ecological issues, and foreign aid. Question Period, scandals, and various floor-crossings keep members of Model Parliament on their toes. Lunch provides a pleasant break between the morning and afternoon sessions. Governor-General, As His Worship Brian Turnbull will open and close the Model Parliament with the Throne Speech and Royal Assent. Various local dignitaries will make their appearance as Senators. The Model Parliament takes place at the Davis Centre (room 1351) on Friday, October 18 (6 to 9 pm). The $10 fee for participation pays for lgzw.etand a Model Parliament .

Friendly Fed Update As of September 1991, Uw students found themselves paying an extra three per cent administrative tax on their Canada Student Loans. What this means is that if you get a $5,000 loan, you have to pay $150 up front in order to receive it.

It’s difficult to understand how a student in need of a loan would be able to pay $150 to get it. That same student would then be paying interest on a $5,150 loan. About half of the students in Canada depend on the Canada Shtdent Loans program to help pay for their education. The number of students receiving aid should serve as indication of our financial status. This tax forces students to incur an even greater debt load.

Extend foreign debt relief? by Kim Fawcett spf!ciaI to Imprint

Imagine living in a country where the unemployment rate is 50 per cent. Most people cannot afford all the food they need to survive. Health services, amongst others, are cut regularly, and some hospitals don’t even have medicines. Education is increasingly, if not already, inaccessible. Imagine this and you imagine much of the third world, the topic of last Tuesday’s lecture on “Canada’s Role in the International Community.” The third partaf a series sponsored - by the Global Community Centre and the Kitchener Public Library, the evening invoIved a panel discussion fol1owed by a question period. On the panel were Adilia Aviles, Denis Howlett, Jerome Quigley, Allan Culham, and moderator Lucia Harrison. The overall aims were to educate people about third world debt, to dispel common myths, and ultimately to promote action amongst Canadians. The third world country described earlier is none other than Nicaragua, the home of Adilia Aviles. Her aim in speaking was to emphasize the fact that many third world “assistance” programs accomplish just the opposite. From her position as a leader in the Women’s Secretariat of the Federation of Cattle Workers, a union, she drew practical examples of how such measures as the forced privatization of state farms are increasing unemployment, eroding the standard of living, and actually undermining the economy. Addressing specifw issues, such as structural adjustment, she claimed ” they always hurt the poor countries and

Howlett further pointed out that the Canadian government is one of the strongest supporters of these programs. What we need lo do, he claimed, is place more emphasis on giving third world nations the money they need to develop, and put less on forcing repayment in ways resulting in the very destruction of those same countries. “What is really needed is for the Canadian government to extend further debt relief,” he said. We are n’o longer at a point where the third world is merely behind us - we are at a point where they are actually deteriorating.

Allan Culham, from the policy branch of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), was more supportive of governmental programs. However, he stated, it remains for many governments and international organizations to realize one fundamental truth, “the problem

is that many of these indebted countries are merely insolvent.” They will not be able to repay their debts and, therefore, we ought to strive for debt cancellation. This would cost developed nations such as Canada very little, but would place third world countries in a very good position for economic recovery. Other reforms would also be necessary, of preferably of a type course “empowering people at the lowest levels, allowing them more control of their own economic and political systems.”

A Healthy Career Choice! .

It seems, from the points made by most of the speakers, that Canada and other countries must reconsider their third world “aid” programs. They too often hurt the people they are sup posed to help. In terms of third world debt, many countries are being trapped in a vicious circle trying to repay. Debt cancellation may be the best, or only, solution It is time to accept that third world debt is more than an issue of money - it is a human issue.

fireside chat >y Peter Brown Half a percentage point. Doesn’t sound like much, does it? That’s low much the NDP provincial government 7as cut from the operating grants for the proAnte’s colleges and universities. The 0.5 per cent chopped off of 7.3 per cent ncrease announced for this year translates Into $13 million, $9.1 million of that from Jniversities. The University of Waterloo’s increase was to be 6.55 per cent; now it is 6.05. 4Vhat does this mean in cash? According to the UW Gazette, this will cost UW $672,pOO, throwing the university’s operating budget into ?I $300JIOO projected deficit for 1991-92. The timing of this announcement by provinciat Treasurer Floyd Laughren is difficult for it just spent $2.8 million of its the University $5.8 million capital budget on purchasing the 5. F. Goodrich building at Phillip and Columbia Streets. This brings to mind two thoughts. One, what kind of priority does the University place on the quality of education for undergraduates when it is spending this kind of money in a period of such radical fiscal restraint? UW’s first-year enrollment was five per cent over expected figures this fall. So, first-year classes are five per cent more crowded than they were supposed to be, than they were last year. Of course, the University does not have any control of how many students accept offers to attend this institution, but this fact does not help the undergrads who must deal with tess personal attention, more multiple-choice and other bulk methods of testing, and a general deterioration of the quality of their learning. The other thought that the cuts bring to mind is the back-pedalling being done by the New Democratic government. This provincial government was handed a majority mandate to make changes where it saw fit and it now seems to be backing away from that power, almost cowering at the consequences 01 incurring a deficit. The thing that the N DP is forgetting is that, in the 199Os, economic growth will not be generated by building factories or pumping money into existing industries. Such growth will only come with innovation, the kind that is driven by knowledge and technology. AZ much as we artsies hereat UW hate to admit it, it is our engineering and computer science brothers, and all of those studying technological and applied science fields, who wil generate economic growth in the future. What the NDP is doing is as misguided a$ the federal government’s squeezing of i& transfer payments to the provinces fol postsecondary education. Economic conservatives argue that deficit spending is borrowing from the future to whoop it up tod?y, mortgaging our grandchildren, so to speak. I would argue that exactly the opposite i: true where funding for postsecondary education is concerned. If we blindly cut programs ir search of the “balanced budget,” we run the risk of gutting investments in the future just for the sake of fiscal black ink. What is the point of having a balancec budget today if our society will not bE educated, our economy will be just a trading post for raw materials, and our low level o technological competitiveness will force us tc abandon the social programs that give uh some semblance of humanity? Whew. Nothing better than a good rant.

A devastat.hg . ,dearth -in our dear domain

The failure of the Meech Lake Accord has provided Canadians an historic opportunity to impact some influence on their future. This future can proceed to a liberatory society, able to meet the most basic needs of its people in a manner that is humane, yet respects the natural environment, or it can regress back to a smoke-and-mirror reformation of the status quo (read: Joe Clark’s constitutional reform proposals): it can allow citizens the chance to participate in the decision-making process that affects their local communities, their unique ecological and geographical regions, and ultimately, the collective consciousness rightly known as Canada, or it can maintain the hierarchical, antiquated, bureaucraticallycentralized nation-state, a sham representative parliamentary democracy described by George Woodcock as five-year fascism. By decreeing that aU Canadians from all walks of life have the chance to participate in the reformation of the constitution, albeit with no prospect of fundamental institutional change, Brian Mulroney has exchanged his gambling dice and closed boardroom for a carrot-on-a-stick and a wobbly roadshow cart, selling firewater, “magic bullet” pills, and other constitutional elixirs. Although I highly doubt the efficacy of my proposals, mainly because the ability of the individual in Western democracies to contribute constructive discourse on matters political, civil, and social has been eroded by the claims of self-appointed experts, bureaucratic elites, and our fallaciously-termed

“dec-

ted representatives,” I suggest that each and every one of us should become involved in this constitutional crisis. If you think you’ve been worn down by “Meech this,” “Meech that,” and want no part of it, you only help to play into the hands of the current crop of powerbrokers.

The chilling aspect of this whole dilemma is the fact that the general populace, (that’s you and me and almost everyone you know) is a marginalized voice at best and a disinterested, apathetic, or plain ignorant weather vane at . worst. Only those with the connections, financial resources, and means to catch the ear of government have got their shit together. Whether they be laudable groups such as the Assembly of First Nations and the National Advisory Committee on the Status of Women - both of which barely manage to get the politicians and bureaucrats to acknowledge their concerns - or, the reactionary right led by the Refo,rm Party and the distinctly different Quebec sovereigntists, all final decisions that affect the individual will be retained by the executives of government. The first step towards a radical political revolution will be to return -the ultimate decision-making ability to the people. We can no longer justify the ineffectual mediation of those numbskulls we vote into parliament. Beyond that, I have no master plan, for that would be antithetical to the aims of popular sovereignty and freedom. Except this: the need for a confederal administration to implement the decisions of the general populace. The structure of power must be reversed; no longer can we take orders from above but that it should come from below. Everyone with a vision, or inmost instances myopic views, wants a stake in the New Canada. But I’m afraid we’ll never achieve a truly

OFS wastes money!

II

Waterloo campus. The fideration of Students’ external commission should be setting up information tables in prominent campus locations and distributing post cards in classrooms to get students involved in the OFS campaign. Last weekend an OFS campaign committee meeting was held, no one from Waterloo attended. If the Feds want to have an impact on the OFS campaign and lobby strategy L&a or the external affairs commissioner should be attending these meetings. * In addition the OFS is more than willing to help students’ councils with awareness activities. They will assist in organizing an OSAP clinic or participate in an underfunding symposium. Waterloo has rareIy taken advantage of these opportunities On October 17 the OFS is hosting an underfunding rally at Queen’s Park. Many university student councils are renting busses so that interested students may attend. Why not use some of the $8,000 and make sure the University of Waterloo is represented at the Eilly. I also find it difficult to hear Lisa express, frustration about the June general meeting. While no one leaves the meetings completely satisfied (such is democracy), I don’t believe that the Feds gave it a fair chance. The Waterloo deIegates chose not to attend (or attended sporadically) important workshops such as ‘“The Funding of Ontario’s PostSecondary Institutions,” “‘An update on activities in the provincial legislature affecting post secondary education” and “the issue of facuIty renewal and why it affects students.” In addition the &ls chose to leave early and missed hearing the Minister of Colleges and Universities address the meeting and participate in a question and answer session. If some one gives the OFS a fair chance and is not satisfied I completely respect their right to say so but, I don’t believe the Federation of Students’ executive has done that. Previous Federation of Students’ executives who got involved with OFS and utilized the campaign

To the editor, In her letter (Imprint, October 4) Federation of Students’ Vice-President, Lisa Brice demonstrates thatshe really does not understand the Ontario Federation of Students. L&a suggests that it is appropriate to spend $8,000 on a fall referendum because “some simple accounting would show that the students will actually be saving money by making that decision in the fall.” This is simply incorrect. The OFS by-laws clearly state that membership starts and ends at June 30 each year therefore, if Waterloo undergraduate students chose to leave the OFS we would still have to pay fees until June 1992 whether the referendum is held in November or February. This is the same clause thatallowed us to become full memhens of the Canadian Federation of Students in November 1990 but meant that we did not have to start paying fees until June 1991. Thus once the facts are straight %ome simple accounting” shows &at it would be a complete waste to spend $8,000 in November for something we can get for next to nothing in February. Lisa also makes some general statements about the OFS. As someone who has been actively involved with the OFS for over three years I feel a few comments must be made. The OFS is only as strong as its members, it is the responsibility of the individual students’ councils to run the campaigns organized by the OFS. Waterloo has traditionally not petiormed well in this area. Right now campuses across the province are participating in a post-card campaign addressing the Rae gavemment’s lack of attention to university underfunding. I have not seen any sign of this campaign on the

rect supporters of the cause under question. Dave Thomson wants to show the world that he is on the vanguard of politically correctness by denouncing his patriarchal heritage. Like all zealots of ideology, he sees the world in black and white and feels justified in dismissing these who recognize that there is grey in the world - even in the world of -feminism. While patriarchy can benefit from the criticism it has received, it does society ill to treat every utterance of feminist rhetoric as sacrosanct. Perhaps “religious types”would not be such a negative appellation had the Christians, Jews, Moslems, etc., not done the same to their own cherished ideals. As for the “threatened males” it is ironic that male ego is appealed to in order to shame disagreeable men into agreement with feminist rhetoric. I was under the impression that the nineties type of politically correct Male was supposed to be vulnerable. Ah, the nineties challenge: to be vulnerable, but never threatened; to disagree, but never disagreeable.

Feminism

Forum

1991

lives

Radical feminism has promoted ideas that sometimes deny basic feminine nature: radical birth control, delaying families as long as possible, dressing like men and being aggressive like men. I think that postfeminism is a gentler feminism, a kind of feminism that lets us really be proud to be female and everything that means pride in our bodies and emotions. Where radical feminism gave us confidence, post-feminism gives us pride. Post-feminism is the realization of both men and women that there isn’t anything wrong with taking time off from careers through time-sharing and parental leave so that both parents can share in day-to-day parenting - and both parents should! There isn’t anything wrong with wanting a career and a family so long as we are happy and respect the next person’s decision;, so many women stick their noses up at friends who opt to take time off to raise famiIies! Most men today are post-feminists. They don’t even think twice about whether we are equaI; they simply accept us as part of society. You are a feminist Alison, and you aren’t the onIy one who finds the word feminism j.ntimidating. Hopefully now you won’t find it as intimidating,

To the Editor, 1 am writing in response to Alison Feniak’s “I am not a Feminist”Ietter in last week’s issue. I would like to say “way to go!” to Alison - it’s really important that non-radical women start to speak up about sexism in a way that is nonoffending and nice to read. I would, however, like to say that you are a feminist, Alison! I realize that the word “feminist” is intimidating to a lot of people women just as much as men. However, think about it Alison, what does feminism mean and what has it brought us as women? There are degrees of feminism of course; radical feminists are the most visible and probably what everyone doesn’t want to be accused of being. I am not a radical feminist. I agree that changing “manhole” to “personhole” is silly and a waste of time and I cringe when the Lmprint prints womyn instead of woman simply because womyn brings up images of hairy, screaming, sometimes unreasonable radical feminists who want nothing to do with men and consider feminism a way to be ‘better” than men instead of a movement to achieve equality radical feminists take the idea too far. However, I do value what radical feminists have brought us: equality in the workplace, the right to vote, equality in education and society, heightened awareness of the problems of rape and pornography, and confidence in ourselves as people and equal members of societv. mey were attempting to attack the very base Df a male-dominated society and revolutionize it to create a society where equality of both sexes is accepted. Except for a few dull-headed rednecks I think that they got their message through to ;ociety. Look at what they have achieved - as a woman from a small northern town I now have options’to the old tradition of staying home, basically uneducated, and pumping out baby after baby. However, I really think that the feminist movement is evolving and that it’s time to move on from “radical man-hating” feminism to a movement called post-feminism. Most men consider women equal today. Most men respect women as a different but equal part of our society and there isn’t a big need for the revolutionary movement that radical feminists are stiIl trying to perpetuate.

Team not club To the editor, This letter is intended as a clarification of the status of the University of Waterloo Rugby Club with respect to the article “Rugby Warriors Tour the East Coast” (Imprint, Sep tember 20,1991). It has been incorrectly presumed that the Rugby Varsity program and the Rugby Club program are one and the same when in fact they are not. The varsity side is the responsibility of the Athletic Department and as such, follows alI policies and regulations put forth by that department. The Rugby Club’s East Coast Tour was a club event, ahd not a tour by the University of Waterloo’s Varsity Rugby Team.

Rugby Fmtball

by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff From a television commercial: Two disgustingly middle-class

snot-nosed kids argue over what they’re going to be, what Ninja turtles, blah bl& blah. Their mother listens, flipsmiling at the innocence of youth. SuddenIy a picture of a poor Bolivian @(I think it was “Maria”) stares up from a page of the magazine. of course the point is made about the gap between the rich first world and the poor third world countries, and so on. Two points. First of all, is this kind of crap okay? A recent article in i?%eGlobe andMail discussed whether the “Send money or this child will die” campaign really works. The answer was yes and no. Although since the 1984-85 famine World Vision et al. has made over $200 million dolIars a year, the message and the visual stimulation has had to become more and more intense. People will become and have become more and more jaded to the pictures of starving children with bloated stomachs and “flies in eyes.” Does it work? People send in money steadily, even though most of them can’t remember to which organization. Exploitation works. Ads with little or no emotional appeal don’t get much response, and those trying to generate money have to use what works. But more to the point, do we really have to send in money? Is sending cash donations at all the most efficient way to solve the apparent problem of millions of starving people. Is it necessary? No. WhiIe piles of food bulge open the doors of storage bins around the world waiting to rot, people send in their five dollar donation& It doesn’t really seem to make any sense for people to even bother when the solution is simply to get governments to send the goods to the people in need. When farmers are paid not to produce, the short-term solution is readily at hand. The food can easily be shipped and air-lifted to the people in need. If world governments are really committed to helping those in need, there are simple ways to get the food to where it is needed. of course the argument is raised that if we do this, then the people in need will end up expecting this food regularly and wilI either “forget” or simply not want to become selfsufficient. Obviously this argument is extremely insulting to the people who are getting the food. To expect that they wiII become lazy after receiving food is rather offensive. Most of these people are victims of unjust policies enacted by governments in the middle of civil war. This may stop food from getting through, but hardly leads to forgetting how to provide food for oneself. Of course, delivering fmd is only a short-term remedy. For real progress.to be made, governme& have to stop using innocent people as pawns in their political games and allow the natural needs and desires of their people to be realized. If we want to help, then.reaIistic seals must be set akrd rtialistic means have to be put in plate.

Students by Jean-Jacques

Marmont

Thii month, several hundred thousand individuals of varied ages will start, or continue, their studies at Canada’s universities, colleges, and technical schools. For many, the venture will be costly. Most must accept Canada Student Loans or one of several provincial equivalents to finance their courses. Unfortunately, those financial packages often become substitutes for welfare and unemployment benefits in a society plagued by recession and unemployment. Many students, especially older ones with families to support, leave their studies with a degree but no adequate employment. Thus, they acquire a massive debt burden with no foreseeable prospect of repaying it. For those who qualify, interest relief, a more recent government mechanism to appease debtors, allows for three-month grace periods. This time span commences immediately after the initial six-month exemption duration following an official end to the student’s course. When interest relief is no longer feasible, former students often re-enter study programs only for loans to help support their families. Hence, their long-term debt intensifies. Many often retain a minimum “full-time student” status rather than face the dilemma of making loan payments which can reach hundreds of dollars per month. The Canada Student Loan program does not face the realities of today’s population, for whom “education” and training do not have an age or economic barrier. Furthermore, the government fails to recognize pragmatic and devastating effects of student loans for many recipients. I speak as an authority on the matter as I accumulated a $35,000 obligation to the Canadian government I am unable to repay it! However, I do possess an advantage over most loan recipients, having first-hand experience administering these loans. When they were introduced in the early 196OsJ processed many CSL applications as a loan officer with the Bank of Montreal. In the program’s early days, there was no regulated mans test. Therefore, many “poor little rich kids” took their maximum per annum allowance of $1,000 and used it to purchase a

car or go on lavish holidays. Previous to my university studies, my practical profession took me all over the world, mostly in refugee and disaster relief work. In 1983, at 40 years of age, I entered a BA program at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia. Married with three young children and a wife with considerable medical problems, I raced through eight consecutive semesters, emerging with a first-class honours degree. As I had spent about 15 years outside Canada, despite being a Canadian citizen, I was ineligible for provincial grants or bans. Therefore, I supplemented student loan advances with bursaries, scholarships, and several part-time jobs amounting to 25 hours a week This was no “vacation work,” but employment while undertaking an abovenormal course load of 18-20 class hours per week. Alas, I have painfully learned via my own endeavours and similar experiences of friends that neither the academic world nor general society genuinely respect success by underdog achievers. The real world of a single mother or seasoned career of a mature student with children are more a threat to the academic professor who scorns practical experience. To the prospective employer, practical experience, advancing age, and intelletial knowledge are not a profitable combination Nor are they a political advantage for the prospective employer’s authority image. Nonetheless, in 1986 we left Vancouver for my studies in Israel, and the London Scho1~1 of Economics in England to earn a PhD degree. My hope upqn completion was to acquire an adequate-paying pOsition to support my family. During this three-year period another $12,000wasaddedtoourloanburden,Un.fortunately, when Y finished the degree in 1989, there was no grlarantee of a job in Europe, Canada, the L’nited States, or elsewhere, Regardless, I returned to Vancouver, partly because I wanted to work out arrangements regarding my student loans. Initially, I received interest relief because I was unemployed. After several months of existing on BC’s draconian welfare system, I registered for three insignificant undergraduate courses merely to get some

aid from British Columbia’s Student Loan Program to help support my family. I also tried to secure a partial loan remission being operated by the BC government. However, initially turned down for spending three years in England and receiving s0me assistance via Ontario, I immediately sought legal advice. Upon that tounsel, I wrote directly to the government minister for higher education in BC only to receive another indifferent and pompous letter of rejection. During the summer of 1990, realizing no adequate employment in Canada was on the horizon, I received money from a British source to finance our return to Europe. Over a previous two-year period, I had applied for nearly 500 positions worldwide. The only positive developments came with temporary work on the Kurdish refugee problem in Northern Iraq, and a UK employment department program that will help me start up a smalI printing business. Technically, I am still eligible for interest relief because I have such a low income for a five-member family. However, despite my keeping a post office address in Vancouver, I am not officially eligible because my residency is not in Canada. Thus, in November 1990 I wrote detailed correspondence to 0ttawa and Victoria informing them that student loan burdens constitute 80 per cent of my financial obligations. In short, if I was not given the respect and consideration of a partial loan remission, I would be forced to file for a legal bankruptcy. The contents and urgency of my letter were essentially ignored. A response I did receive, blindly informing me of my legal responsibility to repay a.lI loans, came four months after my initial letter of November, 1990. Thus, I started. bankruptcy pr0ceedings through a trustee in Vancouver under the laws of British Columbia. My creditors quickly reSponded by hying to pressure my through debt collection M-Party agencies. Again, I fortunately possess an advantage that most students who owe loans do not have. Before I worked with the Bank of Montreal, I was a bad- debt collector with Canada’s largest finance 0 - u~y. I understand collection psycholog)l, Lnuw how these characters

operate, and fully comprehend the domestic and international legal parameters of credit and collections. When a couple of collection agencies 6x1: tacted me here in the UK, I mereIy filed a corn plaint with the appropriate British licensing agency and registered a harassment charge with the local police. After that action, my family received no further annoyance. My story of loan burden is not unusual. However, the method I use to alleviate the predicament probably is. Yet I stress that government agencies must be made aware of the realities faced by people who take out these loans. Practically, they are merely another form of welfare benefits, except that one has to legally repay them. In these times of high unemployment, poor economic perfonnance, age prejudice in hiring and sex discrimination, there is no guarantee of any single mother or older student with a family securing adequate employment when they finish their studies. Most student loan bad debts involvie this group of people. If someone takes but a leap to pursue studies, does poorly, or drops out for irresponsible reasons, he or she should be liable to repay that money. However, when one diligently pursues and achieves a goal, often while fulfilling stressful family responsibilities, he or she should be recognized for achieving that objective. Such reward could be to@ remission of the amount owed or a tax credit of comparable value. If you are able to repay student loans, naturdly make every effort to do so. However, if this debt is destroying you, your marriage or your family, do not hesitate to use all legal apparatus tcGGtigate pressure. Apply for bankruptcy if necessary, and when enough people do so, perhaps loan authorities and politicians will wake up to the ’ practical problems of financing higher education and t-raining throughout Canada

Pugwash by Shealagh

Pope

While I have long been interested in the issues of science, technology, and stiety, I have not been involved with Canadian Student Pugwash before. My only association with Pugwash is rather tenuous, and it is to the village of Pugwash in Nova Scotia, at that. Nonetheless, I have a Pugwash story to tell that illustrates what I see to be my role on the National Rdund Table on the Environment and the Economy. My boyfriend’s father and grandmother were born in Pugwash, NS. Colin cl+iis to be related,as I’m sure does everyone in Pugwash, to Cyrus Eaton, the philanthropist who funded the first Pugwash meetings back in 1957. Colin remembers being taken to Pugwash as a very little kid. What he remembers about the visit is being terrified of the dock that led to his grandfather’s boat. The dock had huge gaps between the boards and he could look down through these gaps and see the water far, far below. When Colin was taken back to Pugwash years later, everything had changed, or at least had seemed to. The dock was a dock of ordin;ary construction, with no great gaps to swallow a child down into the sea, There was nothing terrifying about it at all. I’m sure we all have had similar experiences of being taken back to places that held particular rein over our imaginations when we were younger only to discover the power gone tvlth the time passed. What I think is important about this story, and about other similar experiences, is the importance of perspective. The dock didn’t change - Colin did. And yet his interpretation of the dock as terrifying is no less real, or less important, for having been the impression of a child. In discussing the National Round TabIe on the Environment and the Economy and my role in this organization, I like to emphasize the idea of perspective. I rather imagine that the Round Table will be relieved to hear that I have come, just recently in fact, to the same conclusion that prompted them to invite youth members to several committees in the first place. As a youth, my view of the world

is fun! differs markedly from that of the-older members of the committee, something that I really didn’t believe at first. I believe now that the perspective of youth is the perspective of urgency and of questioning. Urgeticy - “Are we there yet?” - and questioning - “How do we get there?” and ‘Where are we going?” or perhaps more often, ‘Where are we being taken?” Back in 1969, ecologist Eugene Odum argued for the need of new forms of govemment to address the integration of human processes within ecological processes. “Governments are so fragmented and lacking in systems analysis capabilities that there is no effective mechanism whereby negative feedback signals can be received and acted on before there is a serious overshoot,” Odum said. “Society needs to and must find as quickly as possible a way to deal with the landscape as a whole so that manipulative skills (that is, technology) will not run too far ahead of our understanding of the impact of change.”

Round table prucessnew

to Canadiansystem The response that both Pugwash and the National Round Table have adopted is that of multidisciplinary consultation. By bringing together people of different backgrounds, expertise, and experience, and ultimately perspectives, we hope that new solutions will be advanced to the extremely complicated issues facing us today. Round tables are relatively new institutions in the Canadian political system. Traditionally, people with similar concerns, subh as trade associations or student organizations, come together to discuss how their interests can be furthered. In the round table process, it is the people with concerns traditionally thought to be competing that come together to discuss how the interests of society can be furthered.

In a sense, round tables are microcosms of society. Their membership is drawn from the political levels of government, the corporate sector, academic and research institutes, the scientific community, and a variety of public interest and professional groups. And of course, youth.

Shealagh Pope has just wnpleted a 12month term as youth representative to the Waste Reduction Commiflee of the National Round Table on the Economy and the Envirunment. The Round Table acts as a direct advisory budy to the F?ime Minister> ofice.

How is HIV transmitted? HIV is passed directly from one person to another via blood, semen or vaginal fluids. The virus can be transmitted from an infected mother to the child either during pregnancy or during birth - about l/3 of the babies born to HIV mothers will be infected.

Bringing up the subject of safer sex can be hard. Think about what you -want to say ahead of time. Choose a time to talk before that first intimate moment. Remember, starting to talk is the hardest part. Once you’ve both agreed to practice safer sex do something positive and fun - buy different brands - plan a special day when you can experiment. If your partner doesn’t agree, then just say NO to sex unless it’s SAFER SEX. How To Use a Condom 0pen the package carefully. Put it on right. Start the condom rolled up at the head of the hard penis. Pinch the air out of the tip to leave room for sperm - air bubbles

Your Partner

If you have had sex before, you or your partner could have a sexually ‘transmitted disease from a previous sex partner tithout knowing it. Use latex condoms to protect yourself and your partner. It’s better to be safe than sorry. The time to decide touse a condom is before you have sex. Now that you know that condoms are important, you can choose to make condoms an exciting part of your sex life. Better yet, decide with your partner.

Women have beenaffected by both HIV and AIDS since the beginning although it has only been recentIy that we have been acknowledged to be at risk. We generally protect ourselves against pregnancy, but the pill and other contraceptives wilI not protect us against HIV - only safer sex .. .

YBF storms by Caroline Guiquis special to Imprint

Youth Building the Future (YBF) is an international network of youth of different backgrounds, working toward increasing global communication, cooperation, understanding and awareness. Along with those fundamental goals, it is concerned with such global issues as the preservation of the Earth’s environment, human and cultural rights, a human-centred economic order, world peace, the responsible use of science and technology in society, an honest and impartial global media, and others. Three Waterloo students attended the fifth annual YBF International conference in Oslo, Norway this summer, which had a specific theme of Human Rights with subcategories of cultural, children’s, and environmental rights. The three students were Marion Black (Spanish, Latin American Studies), Caroline Guirguis (MA - Economics), and Andrew Pape (Systems Designs Eng., Int’l Studies). Well so far, you have’ heard Andrew and Marion describe some of the details of the conference; the agenda, the workshops, the agreements, the disputes. But what about the social relationships, commitments, and friendships that were made. Until you are made aware of the camaraderie of the conference along with the specifics - you can’t really get a sense of the total atmosphere in Oslo. So, it is my job to try and bring to life the incredible intimacy 119 delegates from 39 countries shared for one week this summer. The Norwegian organizers (being a fairly social lot) understood the importance of cutting loose, of relaxing and letting everyone get to know each other. With this in mind, they began the tedious and timeconsuming task of arranging the social calendar for the conference. First on the agenda was a group scavenger hunt. All the delegates were separated into groups of 20 or more and sent into the woods of Oslo. Now this may not sound terribly interesting to some, but it certainly broke the ice for by the end of the afternoon, not only had you spent the day collecting information with these people, but you also (as a group) participated in cherry stone spitting, milk can tosses, horse-shoe throwing things you hadn’t anticipated would be part of an international youth con: ference on human rights. Keeping more in line with the conference theme, a cultural evening was planned for mid-week. This involved

Technology and wealth means quality of life half of the picture, an expensive oversight, the cost of which all of us have to bear.” According to UW’s Institute for Risk Research, nations should not only take a careful look at all the risks involved when new technology is being put in place, they must also measure those risks accurately against the benefits the technology can bring, to find the extent to which the benefits offset the risks. “Unfortunately, policy makers often react to hazards that worry people rather than those that will kill them and on occasion, this has led to the expenditure of vast amounts of money with little gain. Thus some programs have taken funds away from alternatives that would be far more beneficial in the long run,” the IRR researchers claim. Some of the most dramatic cases include recent public scares over PC&, asbestos, Alar, radiation, trichloroethylene and other substances that, though they are cause for concern, need not involve high level risk to humans.

from UW News Bureau It has become highly popular of late to support without question arguments that favour energy conservation, the environment, and other “green” concerns. While this is highly laudable, some people pursue them to the point that they are suspicious of 20th century technology in virtually any form. Now a fresh argument on behalf of technological change and innovation has come out of the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Risk Research; it is in the form of a new book that closely links technological and change with health expectations measures social well-being. The book, entitled Managing Risk in the Public Znteresz, argues that technology is a key contributor to the wealth of many nations the world over and that it also has done much to improve dramatically the health and life span expectations of their citizens. Therefore, any evaluation of technologies and associated risks must include a consideration of their positive benefits. MRF’I is a 24%page academic paperback, co-authored by three senior scientists: Niels Lind, a University of Waterloo engineering professor; Jatin Nathwani, an engineer at Ontario Hydro heavily involved in policy making ad Ernest Siddall, a member of the National Academy of Engineering. What the three have found is that without exception, as nations have progressed into the modem industrial and post-industrial eras, there has been an accompanying increase not only in life expectancy but in the general well-being of the citizens. In short, wealth is health; or, the best way to improve health and lengthen life spans is to make it possible for more people to enjoy a higher standard of living. It is not just a matter of reducing risks or improving medical care, MFPI insists; it has more to do with improvements in nutrition, housing (less crowding and more protection from the cold), safer drinking water, and other such factors. Even during the early years of the industrial revolution in Britain, the IRR researchers say, when workers were thought to have suffered severe exploitation at the hands of factory owners, they still managed to derive enormous health benefits from technological change. “In every country we have looked at this has happened,” says Nathwani. “We have looked at a reasonable cross-section of the global population and there have been no exceptions; nowhere did we find declining trends in the expectation of life. Today, even in industrialized countries, there is an increase

of three or four months to the life-span expectancy of the average citizen every year. In some countries, still in the pre-industrial stages, the improvement is even more dramatic because they are beginning to enjoy the benefits that technology and wealth create.” Lind, Nathwani, and Siddall have come to their conclusions after looking at statistics that date back many years - to 1871 in Germany and 1831 in Canada. They have come up with tables showing that increases in gross national product in a country can produce enormous increases in life expectancy and overall wellbeing. “These studies show that it is high time we started to look at technological change from a insists Prof. John Shornew perspective,” treed, director of the Institute for Risk

Research. “Because we so often focus exclusively on every conceivable risk we tend to make the wrong decisions whenever we

move ahead with a new technology, whether it is a power plant, pipeline, or plastics technology. When we do this we look at only

For a better response to such problems the authors call for a “unified rationale” in assessing risk-s, such a rationale to include not only examining the risk involved in connection with anygivene innovation, but also accurately measuring it against the possibility that the innovation would make a significant contribution the wealth of a society and ccjnsequently, to the life and health expectations of its citizens.

Bricks that grow in the briny sea by David ciktesy

Heller of Canadian

Science News

A ~dzholi~ scientist has joined researchers from Columbia and Germany to develop a building material that grows underwater. Pieter Sijpkes, an associate professor of architecture at McGill University in Montreal, is developing a system that uses the natural build-up of calcium and other deposits in the ocean to create durable and inexpensive building materials, such as bricks, pipes and roofing tiles. For centuries the owners of sea-going vessels have had to deal with the problem of barnacles, mussels, and other tiny ocean dwellers fixing themselves to boat hulls. But Wolf Hilbertz, a German architect living in Ireland, decided to look at the problem as a solution. Now FIilbertz, Sijpkes and Jorge Zapp, a mechanical engineer in Colombia, South America, are refining the process of using underwater calcification to grow building materials. The researchers build shapes out of wire mesh, submerge them, and send a lowvoltage current through the wire. The voltage and amperage required vary, depending on conditions, but Sijpkes says that as a rule of thumb a kilogram of material requires about a kilowatt-hour of electricity to produce. The current attracts calcium and magnesium, minerals abundant in sea water, which coat the wire mesh. After about three to four months, the minerals cover the mesh with a veneer up to 12 milhmetres thick. At this stage, the coated mesh is fragile. Sijpkes says they once lost a whole experiment to the battering of waves from a storm at sea. However, during phase two the structure develops a rock-like hardness. In phase two, the biological phase, the electricity is eliminated and the mineral-coated

form is left alone to the natural workings of ocean life. Algae are attracted to the minerals, and they in turn attract shell&bearing invertebrates that attach themselves to the structure, such as mussels, clams, barnacles, coral and tubeworms. After about one year, this creates a concrete-like material that Sijpkes says is as solid as medium strength concrete. Sijpkes likens the process to farming, since “growing time depends on many factors, such as biological activity in the area, salt content of the water, acidity, and water currents in the area.” In fact, the process is so variable that there doesn’t appear to be any one perfect formula for growth: following exactly the same prc+ cess twice will sometimes produce two different results. Sometimes marine life will grow on one section of the mesh and ignore another for no apparent reason. The researchers have tried the technique in many parts of the world, but so far the waters off Cotombia have produced the best results. The overall effect is much like “growing an artificial reef,” Sijpkes says. Indeed, there are plans to use the process to regenerate dying reefs in Jamaica, and Sijpkes sees this as a potentially major application of the research. The death of reefs isa problem in many parts of the world, where they are an essential part of marine ecology and hence of the fishing industry. The overall effect of the shells and shapes attached to the marine material can be quite beautiful, says sijpkes. He has heard that at least one artist used the process to create a sea-sculpture. Other potential applications of the technology dre in underwater construction of bridges and piers, or in the reclamation of land from the sea. Hilbertz even envisions using windmills or solar cells to generate electricity for massive mesh structures that would buiId’ an island where once there were just a few rocks.

primarily, the researchers hope to see their technology put to use building such products as bricks, pipes, and other durable and hexpensive materials. Sijpkes SZIYSthat fight now his mam concern is to produce smaller building materials with consistent results. He believes the first practical application of the project should be to create roofing tiles that can be used in place of the asbestos-concrete &tire currently used in many developing countries. Some researchers have suggested using the process to create large building components, even entire houses. However, while larger pieces are feasible to grow, most developing nations don’t have the equipment necessary to transport them out of the water once they are finished, Sijpkes says. The researchers would like to be able to build enclosed structures, such as septic tanks. However, they first must find a method of dealing with gases that build up as a result of the growth process, since these would become trapped in an enclosed structure and halt the growth of marine life. Sijpkes says sea concrete could not compete economically in first world’ countries like Canada, where building materials such as concrete, shingles, and lumber are plentiful. But he believes his marine material can offer a reasonable alternative to the more expensive, dangerous and scarce materials now being used in the many developing countries within easy reach of a coast, such as most of the Caribbean countries. The research in Columbia is being sponsored by Labor Habitat, a non-profit institution in South America involved in housing research and development, and the United Nations Development Program.

Second team play suspended for season The extra-curricular activities of the Warrior rugby team this fall have landed it in hot water. After an enthusiastic beer-up during a roadtrip to Queen’s University two weeks ago, Athletics reached an agreement with the coaches of the team to suspend the traditionaI second-team competition. The “seconds,” as they are commonly known, will stiII practice with the varsity first team and provide alternates for games, but WilI not actually play a separate game against the seconds from other universities. UsuaIIv, a seconds exhibition game follows the varsity game. ‘we reached this agreement with the coaches to alfow the coaches and the team to focus and concentrate on the varsity commitments of the rugby team,” said Don McCrae, head of men’s interuniversity athIetics. ‘This is a probationary sanction that we are taking toward the team until the end of the season. During the off-season, athletics will get together with the team, club, and coaching staff to analyze the philosophy and direction of the team.” McCrae admitted that the decision was in response to a party *at followed games against the Queen’s Golden Gaels in Kingston on September 28, but he said that this incident was “the culmination of a number of issues.” NO cost savings wiIl be realized by the cutback, McCrae said. ‘The league (OUAA) recognizes 19 players as eIigible for the varsity

During the off-son, the teamsphilosophy and direction of the team will be analyzed Some members of the team were angered with the timing of the decision, which was announced to the team by the coa&es during a practice on Thursday, October 3, two days before the team was to play a crucial road game at McMaster. Other were confused by the connection between excessive partying and the second team. ’ ‘The seconds are not a ‘party’ team,“tid anunidentified team member. “They are a developmental squad. If athletics wants us to cut down on the partying, then they can force us to do that. But cutting the second team just hurts the varsity team.” The second team games alIow borderline players to improve by playing in exhibition games instead of just in practice, this team member said. “Rugby isn’t Iike football in that you can’t just substitute your junior players in at will late in the game.

Both Queen’s and Toronto possess strong and tough tennis teams, and Waterloo struggled against the more powerful forces, but was forced to settle with two losses of 8-1. But Waterloo’s “great hope” came through in the form of Carolina Culik, the number-one-ranked singles player in the league.

In the second half, Mac again outscored Waterloo, but Waterloo managed some offence of their own. Center Mike Rourke intercepted an errant Mac pass, and galloped for the goal line. Rourke blazed past a couple of defenders before he was even- 1 tually hauled down by a Mac back row player five metres from the Marauder goal line. Replacement winger Mike Barre (rhymes with Charro) also provided entertaining offence when he received the ball.

In Hamilton last weekend, the McMaster Marauders pummelled the Rugby Warriors en route to a 30-9 victory, in a game reminiscent of the recent England versus Italy World Cup mismatch. The Warriors turned in a IackIustre effort to fall to Mac for the second time this season. The win gives Mac a 3-2 record and Waterloo drops to 2-3. In other OUAA division 1 rugby action, Queen’s maintained their perfect record (5-O) with a 16-6 win over Western (3-2) and Guelph (2-3) pounded York 24-O.

Although they ran well, the Waterloo backs were unable to maintain possession of the ball once they had gone into contact. The forwards also started rambling when Waterloo’s Amie look-alike (Palmer not Schwarzeneggar) Sandro Bassanese powered through the Mac forwards. He presented the ba.ll well, but no support followed, an d Mac regained possession. In the bat k row Adam Frolic covered scrapp Y ball well for Waterloo.

Theyfell a few yaqk short of a try Waterloo

has dug themselves

into

a big hole. They must defeat Guelph and Western and count on Mac to lose both of its remaining gmbs in order to make the playoffs, since they would lose a tie-breaker with Mac based on head-to-head competition. In the tight OUAA, they must retain control of their own .destiny by winning. In four games this season, the Warriors have still not scored a psychologically crucial try. Mac has the largest field in the OUAA, but they never needed to use it last Saturday when they scored up the middle at will. Earlier in the week, the Athletic Department informed the Rugby Warriors that the junior varsity program would be cancelIed for the rest of the season, because of off-field performance of the team. On Sagday, the Warriors left their minds with the junior varsity team at home. Earlier in the season, Mac narrowly defeated Waterloo in Waterloo. Waterloo has been constantly improving in the intervening weeks, and after a close game agahst Queen’s, the Warriors were hoping to solidify a playoff berth with a win. Unfortunately, they fell a few yards short of a try. In the first half, the Waterloo forwards could not control possession of the loose ball. Waterloo won their scrumsP but were unable to secure second phase ball, because they did not play well as a team. The pack failed to use their strengths of speed, conditioning, and teamwork. The Waterloo backs had trouble adjusting to a new lineup after fly half Brian “Where am I?” Anderson left the game with a concussion. Derek Feather&one played his usual dependabIe game at strum half, providing ‘the backs with good passes when Waterloo won the ball. Waterloo had the wind in the first haIf, but they did not use the strong wind to its full tactical advantage. Mac struck hard and early.

Five am marked the beginning of a taxing yet fruitful weekend road tip. The first challenge was ‘Toronto Island for the U of T Sprints: an intense and draining 1,200-metre battle for supremacy among the strongest crews in the province. Two golds and a silver were the welldeserved rewards for the underdogs of the regatta.

Soccer Athenas still looking for first win

‘by J. Henderson Imprint sports . Over the weekend, the varsity badminton team competed in their first tournament at the University of Western Ontario in London. Despite being plagued with injuries and illness, the sevenwoman, eight-man team managed to hold their own. The Athenas, led by second-year kinesiology student a&l returning player Marcie MacVicar, tied for fourth, while Warriors, led by engineering student fourth-year Oanh Ho, placed third. The women’s team welcomes four rookies who used this weekend to valuable tournament gain experience. The men’s team is primarily composed of seasoned players. Under the coaching of graduating student and former member of the Ontario Junior team Jeff White, the team should easily be able to better these first tournament results. The team will play in twcj more tournaments this term, one at M&laster on October 26-27 and one at Wilfrid Laurier on November 16 17, as weU as one next term before attending the ouAA/owIAA Championship at Queen’s in FebIzlilFy

Athena Soccer by Claudia CampaM Imprint qmrb It has been one tough season for the Waterloo Women’s Soccer team. Things began with promise but injuries have soured the hope for a spectacular showing this year. In spite of the odds, the Athenas are enthusiastic and determined tofinish the year on a winning note. L&t week began with Waterloo - travelling to St. Catharine’s to face the Brock Badgers, a usually weak opponent. Waterloo controlled the entire game, but unfortunately had more than a bit of trouble in making their

efforts shown in the form of some goals in the net. Brock, oq the other hand, connected on about the only chance they had, and took the game 1-O. A tough loss. Saturday saw the Athenas host Western (boo, hiss) on the Columbia greenspace on a mild but very windy day. The Athenas held their own until the ‘Stangs connected, making it 1-O. The weather deteriorated as fast as the Athena defense and Western took the game by a final score of $0. Sunday dawned colder and brighter as the Athenas faced off against Guelphl in what promised to be an evenly matched game. The Athenas played an excellent match, despite the fact that four of the regular starters were on the sidelines because of injuries. Veteran midfielder Sheri MacDonald in particular put in an outstanding effort, both against Guelph and Western. The only goal of the game was a true heart-breaker; a floater shot from 35 yards out that just cruised over the head of int.erim goalkeeper Anna Hoogendoom, winning the game for Guelph by a score of 1-O.

Warrior The Warriors crossed the midway point of their season this weekend and remain in the upper half of the standings, despite a loss and tie. On Saturday, under a veil of controversy, the Warriors suffered a 2-O defeat to the McMaster Ugrauders. On Sunday, the Warrior squad again sustained a stinging call and had to settle for a draw with the Windsor lancers. Saturday saw the Warriors trucking off to Steeltown to face McMaster. The grim weather was a telltale sign of things to come. The Warriors opened strong and took charge of their foes early. At around the tenminute mark, the Warriors pressed. Dave Presta connected off the volley and launched a cruise missile of a shot into the top right comer from 25 yards out, stunning the Mac side! But the “stunningness” had just begun. The Warriors were in celebration when the referee dropped the real bomb. The linesman claimed to have spotted a Warrior in an offside position prior to the shot. The goal was disallowed! With the air out of the tires, the Warriors slumped. Mac responded with a goal off a free kick. deep in Warrior territory. Before the final whistle, the Marauders added a clincher, and the Warriors had suffered their first loss of the season. On Sunday, injuries and sickness, the inability to finish, and questionable officiating combined themselves to water down the Warrior lustre. The Wanior squad had to settle for a draw against a weak Windsor side. Waterloo struck early. Neil Daniel flicked on a corner kick which the Lancer keeper tipped against the crossbar and onto the foot of Mark Gianopolous. His blast bulged the twine and the Warriors took the lead, or so they thought. An excited linesman claimed that the ball had struck the upper bar, and was therefore out of bounds (ie nada gola). The cuxse of the flag-happy official had struck again for the second time in two days! Hard lines, fellas.

Ret Advisory

Council

by Jane Varley

Thirty-seven members for the second Campus

turned out Recreation Advisory Council meeting on October 2 in the Village 1 Great Hall. The meeting started with the “Human Knot” to help get the members acquainted. Reports were given for each of the five committees that CRAC operates: Protest and Conduct Board, Sponsorship, Athletic Advisory Board, Intramural Conference Committee, and Special Events. The Special Events Committee is planning an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament on Homecoming weekend, November 9 and 10. Watch for details!!

Representatives from the Student Centre Committee attended the meeting. Focus groups were formed from the CRAC members to help the “needs” subcommittee with their needs assessment for the Student Centre. Statistics for Campus Ret were presented by Sally Kemp, Coordinator of Campus Recreation This term has been busy overall with many leagues and instructional programs filled to capacity. The next CRAC meeting wiIl be held Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 5 pm in the Vl Great Hall. All are welcome to attend. Ball Hockey

two weeks of the season, none of the 36 teams in the league have defaulted a game. None of the players have received a major penalty, and there have been no serious injuries.

The names of some of the new teams are just as creative: Children of the Cornea, Boyz Without Hoods, the Old Jersey Devils (hmmm), and the Wet Spots.

Most of the teams will play their third game this week, however all games next week have been cancelled. A full set of games will resume the week after that. It looks like a GREAT season!

Speaking ofthe Wet Spots, they just happen to be the Team of the Week, Doug Lee led the attack with *four goals and an assist as the Wet Spots crushed this other team (I’ll save them the embarrassment) 11-O.

wont’d. from page 10 The Wonder Stuff are touring in of the aforementioned Never bved EIvis album and consequently these first three songs of the night, md the majority of the band’s set were taken from that album. Keeping with the Elvis motif, the stage was bespangled with a golden bust of Elvis and a Tennessee licence-plate embossed I Elvis.. These items were never pointed out as having any import, or even as being significant, they merely just stood as visible reminders of the Elvis tie-in and theme of the tour. 3upport

BONDing with the crowd This first half of the evening connued with a few oldies thrown into be mixture in the form of “Golden ;reen” and “Cartoon Boyfriend.” hese songs were treated to lively, Id well-crafted performances which lowed how well new-comer Paul lifforci fills the shoes of 2%e &zs.s hing Rob Jones. From old material, ie Wonder Stuff changed gears and isplayed a brand new number ‘Me, Ily Mom, My Dad and My Brother” which sufficiently pleased the crowd nough to keep them a-jumping to nd fro despite their ignorance of the umber. Miles dedicated “Welcome to the Iheap Seats” to absent friends, lamely Spirit of the West, whose tour brought them to this very stage last tight “Cheap Seats” is the song on me latest album which features Linda dcrae of SOTW on accordion. For ti number, Martin “Fiddly” Bell put .own his fiddle, put aside his manolin, shunned his piano, and picked .p an accordion to fill-in quite adeuately. In fact, Bell’s musical provess is second only to Miles’ stage

presence as the dominant force of the Wonder Stuff’s live performance. Everyone at Fed Hall, regardless of how they perceived the show as an entity, or Miles as a personality, will attest to the sheer musical ability and verve of Mr. Bell. The conclusion of this first part of the Wonder Stuff’s set came with an energetic version of “Size of a Cow,” a megaphone-rant version of “Donation,” and with Miles momentary wearing his heart on his sleeve by playing “Maybe.” Curiously, the brooding sentiments of “Donation” which were intensified by Mites’ lyric dropping of a Consolidated line, “Looking at a world of alienation with no explanation” from “Brutal Equation,” were simultaneously juxtaposed as being comparable and yet contrasting to the the questioning indecisiveness of ‘Maybe.” There seemed to be a natural division in the show after “Maybe.” Suddenly, the band, more appropriately Miles, realized that their were in the home stretch and picked up a breakneck lambada pace for the remainder of the set. The band chugged through last year’s sole release “Circlesquare” the way Sinatra powers through “New York, New York” -- al+hough Miles did remember all of the words. New song “Here Comes Everyone” followed directly upon the heels of .!‘Circlesquare” and “Wish You Were Here” ensued in a like manner. Miles played the role of a speedcrazed Drill Sergeant bellowing ‘?-Iup” in double time, egging the band on for their snow-balling finale, as ‘Radio Ass Kiss,” “Unbearable,” and “Trenches” brought an end to their set. These songs were offered as a hint of the band’s back catalogue, but were an inferior palliative for those fans who had hoped to catch “It’s Yet Money (I’m After},” “Don’t Let Me Down Gently,” or any of the other chestnuts from the Wonder Stuff’s short but notable career. The encore occurred mere moments after the set had finished. The band regrouped and performed ‘Mission. Drive” before Miles grabbed the megaphone and began the band’s swan song “Goodnight Through.” The curtain came down amongst a sea of smoke and sweaty bodies, and a wail of sirens. As with most well-executed concerts, the prime enjoyment belongs to

the band’s fans, and Fed Hall’s Wonder Stuff concert is no exception to this rule. From some, the band may have gained some new respect, from others, they may have lost some res-

Part of the attracion in animation is the ability to see artifice emulate reality. Nothing causes an upword curl on a tight lip like watching clay capture subtle nuances in human behavior. By far, sumeof the Aardman contributions form the basis of the quality I speak of. Nick Park’s “Creature Comforts,” last year’s Academy Award nominee, justifiably headlines this animation festival. I had a 2” X 4” beam across my face for the entire five minutes watching various zoo animals espouse the virtues and problems inherent in a Iife of incarceration. In the case of “Creature Comforts,” the interviews are merely spontaneous conversations with immigrantfriends. The animification (the opposite of personification?) came M atter.

Milltown Brothers The Wonder

supporting Stuff

Federation Hall October 5, 1991

by Christopher Imprint staff

Waters

The Milltown Brothers came to warm up Fed Hall for the Wonder Stuff by playing all of their favouriie songs. The band hails from England and features the Nelson brothers, not Ricky’s sons the vegetarian twins, but Matt and Simon. These brothers along with childhood friends James, Nian, and Barney, formed the band in 1988. The band’s set contained a wealth of new material, as well as a selection off of their debut Slinky. Their live set kicked off just as their album does: with “Apple Green.” Incidentally, “Apple Green” was Matt’s favourite song, but then again every song they played was Matt’s favourite. Their set also included the favourites, “Which Way Should I Jump,” “Nationality,” and, “Sally Anne.” These songs quickly became crowd favourites as they

photo by Joanne Sandrin were well-received and actually occasioned some of the Fed Hall crowd to dance. What comes across within the MilItown Brothers’ live performance is the dilemma of how to utilize the keyboards in a new and unique fashion It seems that Barney James, the keyboard&, could become an integral part of the band’s sound if they figured out what that sound would be. His work came across best when he treated his keyboard as a percussion instrument; however, his sound was at times the Manchester sound of Clint Boon et al., which is what he is trying to avoid. By trying so stringently to avoid a particular sound, he avoids having any definitive sound. Milltown Brothers were everything you could hope for in an opening band. Their music is up-beat and makes it infectious which immediately accessible. They performed a tight, punchy set, which was enlivened by the fact that the band was happy simply to be performing in North Amefica. As well, they gained exposure in front of a capacity crowd who may be interested in checking them out the next time that they return by which time this band may have progreSSed into being a solid headlining act.

Long considered one of the few live “experiences” left, NMA have pepered their catalogue with the odd ::‘ve track or bootlegged bootleg EP and while some of these dispatches have hinted at the sweat and smoke, they are but mere glimpses - even the Space single of last summer was a bland affair, tom from the broader context of this double-album, 75minute concert. Recorded during theImpurity tour, Raw Meh& Mm is a pastiche of four shows: two from the early-mid British rtion of the tour, the other two IT oxq the latter portion in Germany. As to be expected, Raw is a document of their recent history; sure there’s ‘zlb. Ed,” and “Smalltown England” from &eir indie-smash Vengeance;

The material from hpurily is unquestionably better: as one scholar put it: “Whirlwind,” “Innocence,” and “Lurhstapp” all leap from their redundant mire to frolic about on Raw. In terms of adrenaline, “Get Me Out” is performance at its most potent with vocalist Justin Sullivan screamin’: “So you want to dance?. . .. Alright then, dance to his!”

A few petty gripes: ‘me Charge” doesn’t, er, charge quite as much as it could, “Brave New World” is nowhere to be heard and do we really need another live version of “White Coats’? Redundancy remains NMA’s chief foe. Don’t expect excessive guitar or drum solos; Raw is a straight-forward set consisting largely of their most popular work. It could’ve been a bestof album, I guess, but they’re so much less personal than live shows, aren’t they?

So it was with enthusiasm that I picked up Cyberalctif’s newest release Tmebme Pi&n Cyberaktif is a petside-line project for Cevin Key of Skinny Puppy. Cevin uses the band to create music on his own without the restrictions of being in a band. But this is what makes this album so disappointing. Aggro electronic music must pre gress with new technology and sounds in order to stay current and interesting. Cyberaktif’s sounds and songs have little new to offer. AU the ektronics used are from the mid’80s and the drum patterns used are too simple and monotonous. Key has regressed to the old Skinny Puppy sound, complete with vocals so distorted they’re unintelligible. The

viewto a kill album even utilizes the now outdated technique of straight sampling film without treating or dialogue manipulating them. The track “Paradiessiets” and the single “Nothing Stays” have definite dance floor appeal, and would certainly fit on any ’80s album. These songs demonstrate the frustration one feels with this album. With a little innovation and newer technology Cyberaktif could have something here. Ironically, the liner notes proclaim: “Long l&e the new flesh.” Certainly there have been many new and exciting electronic bands to burst on the scene recently, including DHI and Waterloo’s own Digit. Unfortunately, Cyberaktif isn’t one of these bands.

but a&o bring me to my only criticism of the group. Whenever I hear Floyd’s Dark Side of theMoon, I’m always wishing that the lead mike was given to that gifted woman (can’t remember her name and am too lazy to look it up) for just a little bit longer. Similarly, when I hear a band like Webb, I yearn to hear Deanna’s voice in full-force OccasionaIly, in addition to the current predominantly back-up role. That criticism aside, WEBB are definitely worth a listen.

that Webb will be one of those that achieve notable recognition. The first clue I had was when I listened to it, and didn’t want to shut it off after a few songs.

Benmont Tenth’s piano intro on “U” is nothing short of beautiful as it serves to set up the guitar explosion that follows. ‘*Heart Of Soul” and “Sweet Salvation” also begin as ballads but gradually increase in tempo and vohrne. These two songs have the potential to further the commercial success already created by the first single and video, “Wild Hearted Son*”

The Cult’s fifth studio album, Ceremony, can be summed up by the phrase found on its inner sleeve: ‘Earth, Soul, Rock ‘n’ Roll.” Lyricist Ian Astbury comes across as an extremely hip Ralph Waldo Emerson or Henry David Thoreau as he stresses the need to form a spiritual bond with the earth. Two lines from the eight-minute opus “White” best exemplify this: ‘We have forgotten our spiritual nature,” and “Wilderness we must embrace you once more.” Musically, Ceremany is as heavy as The Cult’s last release, Sonic Tiple, although there are several riffs that evoke fond memories of 1987’s Elect’c. Billy III@ remains a guitar maestro, and he branches out acoustically on the tracks “Heart Of Soul,” “Indian,” “Sweet Salvation,” and “White.” The rhythm section has a funkier feel to it, probably due to the addition of bassist Charley Drayton,

3-5 by Paul Done cmprint staff There‘s a certain admiration that one has to express toward Consolidated in their single-minded pursuit of a diverse and radical agenda. As a selfdescribed ‘liberal, feminist, vegetarian, new wave group,” Consolidated manage to confront a spectrum of issues such as homophobia, racism, feminism, animal rights, and wrap them up into a face-smacking musical package. If anything Friendly Fascism diversifies the range of issues tackled by Adam Sherbume, Mark Pistel# and Philip Steir in comparison to iast year’s The Myth of Rock. In many ways this has robbed them of the directness and thrust of their first LP. Sherbume though, blames the intensity reduction on the pressures of meeting Ybureaucratic nxord company deadlines.” The change in sound isn’t such a tragedy. In a pragmatic sense, it means that the group has made inroads toward some kind of greater corporate success. “Unity of Oppression” has become a pcditkally correct staple - one whose sentiments are simple enough for even Erica Ehm to &rasp. Strangely, it seems that they have dficuIties putting the themes of vegetarianism and feminism to music. Instead, ‘The Sexual Politics of Meat,” “Meat Kills,” and “Your Body Belongs to The State” are readings and transaiptions of various vegetarian and feminist literatures.

byPaulDone Imprint staff When released over two years ago, the Sons of Freedoms’ eponymous debut LP found a place alongside Slow and BTO at the pinnacle of fullboreCanadianrock.Thoughitwasn’t

consistently massive, certain tracks “Criminal” and ‘Mona Lisa,” most obviously - piggybacked classic hard rock melodicism to the muscular post-punk funk of the Gang of Fcnlr. The Sons, while making prodigal for a long stretch due to contractual wrangling, have returned with a follow-up album which is better in every respect than their first. The only arrow which could be slung at Gump is that it is disappointingly short less than 40 minutes including ~KJ versions of ‘Dream Girl.” Magically, the Sons of Freedom rock harder, more melodically, and with a greater stylistic range than before. The opening track “You’re No Good” sums up all that is great and grand about the LP, it rocks out in magnificent style, with an ascending chorus which is surely a stroke of divine inspiration. “Call Me” is a catchy pop marvel, demonstrating the Sons of Freedom’s newfound ability to mine and purify nuggets of classic pop ore. Then again, fat old losers like the Smithereens write songs like this, too - in their dreams! The album’s most searing moment is “USA Long Distance,” which they have been using to open their concerts. Though it mines the usual vein of anti-U5 sentiment with clips of TV voices, it’s injected with enough snading intensity to shed the lumpen weight of Cliche. Though his grating whine of a voice is well-suited to the overall bite of the sound, lead singer James Jerome Kingston’s tired retread persona is hard to take. With on-stage drug references, and themes of addiction and seKmmoU-io>n festering throughout the IT, he seems be making a play for rclw credibility. Why not spike yourself on stage, too? That would be cool, wouldn’t it? Ach, despite Kingston, Gwnpis fierce. The sinewy grooves and metallic guitars produce a brew of rare potency. The Sons of Freedom have issued a rock statement of undeniable stridency and power.

The most important band on the planet. For this, their fourth LP album, Public Enemy have shifted their musical focus away from the sprawling hour-plus opuses of Fear uf a Black Planet ad It Takes a Nation of Millions to Htdd Us Buck toward a tighter structure. While their previous two albums sometimes seemed to be going in many directions at once, Apocalypse 91 is fiercely singleminded in intent. Significantly, and without explanation, the Bomb Squad - Hank Shocklee et al. - are no longer twiddling the dials and writing the songs. The new production team is led by Stuart Robertz and Cerwin Depper, who get songwriting credit on all the new aIbum tracks.

a-5 fresh start in a simpler direction for tha PE, but frankly, I’d rather have the Bomb Squad back. The rhythms, whiIe adequately tough, don’t have the same steamhammer impact of old. One need only listen to “One More for the Rebel,” from the Bomb Squad-produced Son of Bazerk album to hear a beat. After a slow start, Apocalypse 91 reaches full speed during “Night Train” and doesn’t slacken until .the end. The album’s tracking does leave something to be desired, as”Get the F-- Outta Dodge,“a b-side from last year, and the Anthrax collaboration of “Bring Tha Noize” are tacked on at the end, and sound more like afterthoughts than part of the alburn. Sister Souljah, the newest member of the posse, doesn’t really havk the prominence expected - considering the flurry of press releases which accompanied her arrival On the other hand, Flavor Flav has finally (in my eyes at least) justified his place in the group.

licensedtu kill Despite the fact that the Bomb Squad get executive production credit, the album has a far less complex (daresay challenging?) sound *n we’ve come to expect. The songs are simpler, lacking the crushing sample density characteristic of the Bomb Squad. Were one charitable, it &uld be suggested that Apoculypse 91 is a

; Those who have graced the UW t Drama Department corridors in the Elast few months will have noticed that framed photos and posters from past productions have been adorning the walls in increasing quantities. At the same time, publicity for the 1991-92 theatre season is all over campus. The department is making a special effort to celebrate and promote the talent and energy of its students. And with good reason. The first show of the season is tirtities, a comedy written a decade and a half ago by Jack Heifner. It follows three female friends from their bubbly, optimistic highschool days (when they were popular disapcheerleaders), to the pointments of their lives as adults. Director Joel Greenberg, also Chair of the Drama department, explains that “the play reflects their individual vanities and egos,” An advantage of the script, says Greenberg, is that, for two of the three acts, “the actors are completely at home with the ages” of the characters. Vanilies endured close to five years off-Broadway, but it runs

Immigration assimilation M. G. V’kaanji

No New Lund M&Land and Stewart 208 pages, $16.95

by Julia Farquhar speck1 to Imprint Maybe you didn’t notice 69 Rosecliffe Park Drive the last time you passed through Don Mills. And maybe Honest Ed’s didn’t strike you as a “block-wide carnival that’s also a store,” a “centre of attraction whose energy never ends,” or a “dazzle and sparkle that’s seen as far away as Asia and Africa in the bosoms of bourgeois homes where they dream of foreign goods and emigration” the last time you shrmbled past those garish lights after an evening at Pauper’s, Maybe you need to take a tour through that “world class city” Torontonians call home, with a newcomer to this country as your guide. You’d be amazed at what you’d learn. M. G. Vassanji’s NO New Land is an eloquent, emotional account of one

doing, both creates an intricate

man’s struggle to assimilate himself and his family into a new country’s new culture. The novel, Vassanji’s second, opens in the living room of the Nurdin and Zera Lalani, fairly recent immigrants from Dar es Salaam. We soon learns that the family’s assimilation is not yet complete, and that all is not well. Teenaged Fatima has been denied entry into pharmacy at the University of Toronto, her chosen ticket ,to ride away from 69 Rosecliffe Park Drive. More importantly, and more central to the novel, Nurdin, Fatima’s father and Vassanji’s protagonist, has been accused of attacking a girl. than provihing Rather any immediate details about the alleged attack, Vassanji chooses instead to go back in time, to “begin at a different place.”Waxing both philosophical comedic (and essentially and wallpapering his thesis onto the page), the author reminds the reader that, “(w)e are but creatures of our origins, and however stalwartly we march forward, paving new roads, seeking new worlds, the ghosts from our pasts stand not far behind and are not easily shaken off.” However much he tries to march forward as a proud new Canadian, Nurdin Lalani slides hopelessly backward, bur-

dened at all times by the guilt his dead father still somehow manages to heap upon him. Although Vassanji’s technique of tearing the story’s wrapping away a sliver at a time becomes both frustrating and infuriating, it is during his painstaking process of building a background that Vassanji reveals himself as a master at his craft. He develops detailed histories for each of his central characters, and, in so

line and offers the uninitiated African scholar a brief understanding of how Tanzania won independence from its British colonisers, and of what life after independence meant for the East Indians living there. Vassar+ is an absolutely masterful writer who, with his subtie shifts between third and first person pronouns, leaves me convinced that Nurdin Lalani lives and broods deep inside the author himself. Curiously, however, Vassanji treats Nurdin with both compassion and contempt; you don’t know whether you ought to laugh at Nurdin or cry with him. For example, Nurdin believes that he has started a slippery slide to hell after he eats part of a hotdog; he has always believed that eating a pig makes one a pig, a symbol of gluttony and lust at their finest. Because he is already prancing along the primrose path of moral degradation, Nurdin finds it easier to drink his first beer and attend his first peepshow. All the while, however, he feels guilty and ashamed, believing he has somehow begun to rot. An initial reaction of amusement and compassion soon gives way to frustration at Nurdin’s constant ‘self-blaming; amidst this frustration comes the realization of

just how difficult it will be for NurdiI ever to assimilate into his new SUI roundinZl;s.‘ Also brilliant is Vassanji’s technj que of matching the tone of his wrii ing with the tone of the story. The fin part of the book, which discusse both the mass exodus of East Indian from Dar and the smaller-scab exodus of the LaIani family, read quickly, so quickly that you have tl struggle to keep up with its fast-pace< intensity. You cannot hold bacl feelings of frustration, despair, an< rage during the Lalanis’ attempt tc enter Britain: “At London airport nor ma1 eyes wo.uld have seen, at the em of a long queue, a somewhat dowd! couple with puffed faces and twc children practically asleep on their feet. What the immigration officers saw, apparently, was a pack of skilled and rehearsed actors from the formel colonies out to steal jobs from hardworking English men and women.” Although at times it slows almosl to a halt, Nu New Lund is a powerful and complex novel, simultaneously tragic, comedic, and ironic. In all, the novel offers a fantastic introduction to life as a new Canadian; anyone even remotely interested in the issues and obstacles immigrants face wiIl find it a fascinating, worthwhile read.

interesting. One sequence, a stream of consciousness narrative by Gil’s father and grandparents, isr shockingly unconvincing. There are other problems with the book as well, not the least of which is its thematic incoherence. A Cain and Abel motif is used fairly consistently for the first third of the novel, then dropped and picked up again just as the book ends. The same goes for the usual half-baked psychology Davies indulges in, this time about the woman inside the man (not female attributes, a separate personality). And when Davies does directly develop his theme, it is with such an air of Big Statement that one feels it ought to be printed in red ink: “Every man ‘s j&h? is the heqjgh t,

Spirits

by Robertson Davies McClelland & Stewart 357 pages, price $27.95 by Derek Weller Imprint !3taff

Murzher & Walking Spirits, the new novel by Robertson Davies (perhaps the most widely-respected name in Canadian literature), offers many of the familiar e1ements of Davies’ best work. It’s all here: a huge cast of characters, a sweeping scope, a keen perception of modem life based on an awareness of history, and a strong Disappointingly moral purpose. though, it all adds up to a surprisingly muddled and ineffective book. The beginning at least, is full of simply crackerjack: apromise, dultery, murder and a haunting of sorts, all in the first two pages. The narrator Connor Gilmartin (“Gil”), entertainment editor of a fittitious Toronto daily - surprises his wife and his star film critic in bed. The surprised writer conks Gil on the head with his walking-stick, and accidentally kills him. However, Gil’s spirit remains in the room, to view the resultant hand-wringing with a wry sneer. The novel’s opening is an instantly arresting whirlwind, but it is deceptive. Thp situation Davies establishes, Gil’s narration, even Gil’s very character, are all secondary to the main action of the book. That action centres on an enigmatic, spectral film festival that Gil’s spirit attends. Somehow, the powers that be have contrived to present to Gil the lives of his recent ancestors - beginning in the late 1700s and continuing up to his own father - in the form of motion pictures, with quick cuts, slow dissolves, split screens, and all the other modem tricks of the trade. Thus, the content of the films actually makes up most of the book, and Murthvr & Walking Spirits reveals itself to be a thinlydisguised historical novel. From post-Revolution America to 18th-century Wale to colonial Canada, Davies attempts to recreate a whole series of settings, and populate them with convincing characters. Sometimes he succeeds, sometimes he does not. For example, the section which deals with a family of British Loyalists

However, too much of the historical material is merely bring. The novel is never less than readable after all, Davies has been writing prose for a while and pretty much has it down by now - but readable does not always mean compelling. or even

as narrator. Gil is only a real presence at the story’s beginning and its end the frame to the film festival. Otherwise, he fades into the background, offering occasional sardonic commentary on what he sees. Rarely dm Gil come aEve as narrator, for even ‘I when he does get in his witty asides, such passages are not tinified by any cohesive sense of Gil’s character. He is simply too weak a character to support the burden of effective narration. Since, by its very intent, Murther & Walking Spirits is disjointed in the first place, Davies’ lack of narrative vision is a crippling flaw. (Oh, and the ending is stilted and perfunctory, too.) Ultimately, while MuHher & Walking Spi& is as readable as you wouId expect from Robertson Davies, and while it would seem to share many of the attributes of Davies’ body of work as a whole, it falls far, far short of the standard set by his previous novels. All the familiar and poweiful ideas are there, but something has gone wrong with their application.

The closer we get to Scranton, the more we realize he real!’ is an astmnaut, not that he’s been in outer space 2 he is trapped in a sort of perceptual inner space. Mimicking the involvement of the reader, our narrator becomes engrossed in this “‘astronaut,” ultimately assuming his identity, continuing a journey in a void deeper than the heavens. More harrowing perhaps is the tale of ‘The Air Disaster” where an ambitious photographer trivels up a mountainside in &apulco to search for the remains of a recent plane crash. Further and further up the mountain he. questions villagers who know less and less English. StilI, they understand the importance of the

plane and insist it’s near the top. The photographer waves his bank wad around, encouraging the natives to understand how important it is that he find “many bodies , . . cadavers, everywhere . . .” I won’t spoil things by telling you exactly how the villagers have, and continue to, misunderstand him A fact to be repeated ad nauseam concerns Ballard’s short story “Why I Want To Fuck Ronald Reagan,” from Exhibit&. In the story Ballard predicts Reagan’s presidency. First published in 1967, the tale remains a bizzare testament to ‘his persistence of vision. Though ffir Fever remains fiction now, who knows what elemental strain of vegetation may yet, through the propulsion of its own ~ magical substance, leap into the realm of reality. As Malcolm Bradbury states: “(Ballard) has a remarkable gift for filling the empty, deprived spaces of modern life with the invisible cities and wonder world of the imagination.” His firstshort story collection in almost ten years, War Fever documents a Ballard potent, giving birth to new realities.
