Referenda appeals heard. by BOG committee by lain Anderson IInprint staff Last Tuesday afternoon, in the cozy confines of the upper rooms in Needles Hall, undergraduate students Paul Done and Sue Forrest approached the final legal body at the University of Waterloo in their quest to have the OFS and student life referenda declared invalid. They believe the Federation of Students broke several of their bylaws while running the two referenda and feel these were serious enough breaches of law to merit both referenda being nullified. They presented to the executive of the Board of Governors their 60-page report outlining what they believe to be flagrant disregard for Federation bylaws and due process, What followed was a 40-minute discussion by Don+, Forrest, Federation of Students President John Leddy, Associate Provost for Student Affairs Peter Hopkins, and several members of the Board of Governors Executive Committee, The discussion was filled with widespread confusion about the BOG’S role in the conflict. Also in doubt was the connection between

Sigma Chi students spot for a charity trampolener. The fraternity raised over $2,000. for Ansetma House last Saturday. Photo by Peter Brown by Jeff Warner Imprint staff On Saturday, March 21,32 members of the local chapter of the Sigma Ch Fraternity held a “trampoline-a&on” to raise money for the Anselm; House, a shelter for battered women. Going from 8 am to 8 pm, thq managed to raise over $2000 in donations from students and surroundin) residents. Sean Cunningham, the chapter president, said that they chose the tram, poline for their fund-raiser because it was “off the wall” and fun, so the, would receive more attention and thus more support. In the past, they havi held bingos, but they found the smoky atmosphere hard to put up with, anC: “running around with people yelling at you isn’t much fun.” Sigma Chi chose Anselma House because it was a small charity and thee could “see where the money went,” With larger charities, said Gun’. ningham, most of your donation goes into administrative costs. Anselma House, he said, was ecstatic with their results and pro. fessionalism. He has already begun the process of planning for next year and is aiming for a higher goal of donations. “Hopefully”, Cunningham continued, “this will continue on into the fuhze and will help to dispel the ‘Animal House’ image of fraternities.”


the Federation of Students and the University of Waterloo. When faced with debating the issue, the Board started looking deep into itself to determine just what its position in the affair should be. After some discussion including a passionate speech by Graduate president Association Students Nelson Joannette, on the autonomy of student organizations on campus - it was decided that the board should not become embroiled in studentmpolitics. “They are just our money managers, They collect our fees for us,” said Leddy afterward. “I would be very offended if they interfered with any decision made by the Joannette concurred Federation.” with a statement that the BOG should essentially, “for lack of a, better word, rubber stamp”any decisions made by student governments. “At the very least, this should serve as a warning that students are paying attention and are willing to fight for what they believe in,” Forrest said when asked about the effectiveness of the meeting. “It is frustrating to not have our concerns answered by either the Feds or the (BOG) Executive Committee. Who at UW is going

to take responsibility for process? The Feds own lawyer agreed that many bylaws had been broken - we don’t understand how infractions of can simply be this magnitude ignored.” “The letter of the by-law might not have been followed, but the Federation went over and above the spirit of the law,” Leddy said during the debate. “We brought these concerns forward because we care about UW,” Forrest said. “It is obvious that any student who chose to challenge paying the (Student Life Centre) fee could pla& the future of the SLC in serious jeopardy. We thought it better to correct this situation now, rather than when the actual pit is dug and we owe money to the bank.” Though Done’s and Forrest’s appeal was neither officially supported nor dismissed by the BoG executive committee, it will probably be discussed further at the April 7 Board of Governors meetig, in connection with approval of fee statement changes.

Board of Governors set to approve fees by &I.&I Anderson Imprint staff Beginning this year, University of Waterloo students will be facing higher tuition costs and a new group of fees. At an executive meeting of the university’s Board of Governors, several resolutions affecting the cost of attending Waterloo were passed. It is expected they will be ratified at the full meeting next month. Tuition fees for undergraduates and graduates will rise by seven per cent. Fees are being raised to bring them in line with the maximum amount universities can charge students without affecting the tinding Waterloo will receive from the Ontario Government. Also rising will be residence fees (6.6 per cent), work report marking -fees (8.3 per cent), and the co-op fee (1.9 per cent). The increases are all cost-driven and should not reflect an increase in revenue for the school. Utilities, supplies and on going main-

tenance were cited as reasons. Also ratified at the meeting were several new student fees and changes to existing ones. They were proposed by John Leddy, president of the Federation of Students. The Federation will be turning the refundable Fed membership fee of $23.70 into a compulsory one. Students are currently entitled to a refund of this fee if they so desire. Approximately 250 students per term ask for a return of this fee, amounting to a loss of about $6,000 for the Federation, according to Leddy. The strongest voice of opposition from the board concerning this change came from John Bergsma, He continually prodded Leddy to explain his reasons for removing this “safeguard in the system.” After several minutes of debate, Bergsma revealed that he was the one responsible for making the fee refundable during his tenure as Federation president in 1969/1970.

A nei fee that all Waterloo students will begin paying is a $10 endowment fund fee similar to the one already in place within engineering. This fund will be in place for a maximum of seven terms. It will be used to address current student needs and help secure financing for the new student life facilities that were accepted by Waterloo students in a referendum in February. The board also ratified a new $25 fee that students will begin paying as soon as the student centre opens. It will be collected for a maximum of 25 years or until the facilities is paid for. This fee will be fully indexed to the consumer price index. Some concern was raised that the school and current student body were binding future Waterloo students into too many fees they will have no say in. Some debate ensued, but alI fees and increases proposed were accepted by the board.

Graduating engineering students at the University of Waterloo have Dledaed more than $60,000 to their ‘A&Mater in this year’s ‘Plumme&’ Pledge” campaign. The three-year pledge, beginning April 1993, was made despite uncertain job prospects for many students due to graduate this spring. A total of 170 students out of 533 potential donors participated, not counting those heading for graduate school. The Plummers’ Pledge is a key cqmponent of the student-initiated

The Heritage Resources Centre at the University of Waterloo is planning to hold an “Ontario Town Hall Meeting”on the environment, development and society. Organizers say the aim of the five-day conference from April 28 to Mav 2 is to “bring people in Ontario together to discuss how well we are doing in addressing environmental, economic and social concerns and what needs to be done.” Among the “activities and concerns” that prompted the conference are: land-use conflicts and the work of the Sewell Commission; the impending report on environmental assessment in Ontario; the Toronto and Great bkes waterfront and Crombie Commission reports; the new Ontario heritage policy and its implementation; “green space,” wildlife, natural heritage, and pollution; and the presence and absence of linkages among environment, economy and society in Ontario. The conference will “stress comprehensive approaches to the various aspects of environment, economy, society, natural and human heritage” and their inter-relations and integrations. hventors

The fee is $23.70 right now. Both the 95”cent increase in the Federation fee and the motion to make the fee compulsory have to be approved at the upcoming Board of Governors meeting on April 7, which all students are allowed to attend. Tuesday’s Board of Governor’s meeting executive committee featured debate on this topic (see related story). A motion presented by Glen Rutland, chief returning officer of the Federation elections, would create an Elections and Referenda Committee under Federation bylaws. This motion was tabled to the next general meeting, since the Board of Directors had already decided to hire a student to look examine the consistency of Fed bylaws and policies. Paul Dune and Sue Forrest, two students leading appeals of the two referenda this winter, presented evidence that the proposed change contradicts in several instances existing bylaws and policies. A further motion was presented to amend the referenda bylaw so that Students’ Council could appoint a chief returning officer instead of the Board of Directors. This was defeated. The

fireside chat by Peter Brown Thank you, Nelson Joannette. Here I sit, early Thursday morning, grasping for a topic for this week’s column, and along comes the president of the Graduate Student Association. According to one of our valued news writers who attended a f3oard of Governors executive committee meeting on Tuesday, Joannette made a comparison at that meeting between ~ Imprint’s supposed harassment of the GSA in the summer of 1990 and the referenda 1 appeals being pursued by two University of Waterloo students. His connection? Paul Done, who happened to be the editor of Imprint at the time in the former case and one of the two complainants in the latter. My connection? Both situations - the Grad House fiasco and this winter’s referenda feature eager student politicians who are ignorant of or deliberately ignore due process. The difference? Leddy was merely ignorant of the Federation of Students’ bylaws; Joannette clearly flouted those of the GSA. (I was news editor and the primary writer on that issue Iwo years ago, so it is near to my heart. ) While Leddy has admitted that the referenda and election bylaws were violated during the conducting of bofh referenda, he defends himself and the Federation by saying that the spirit of the bylaws have been followed. To a great extent they have. Last fall, during the student life ad hoc committee stage, Leddy . and associate provost, student affairs Peter Hopkins invested a lot of time and effort into developing and implementing a consultative process that included the opinions of a wide spectrum of concerned groups on campus. However, the SLC referendum’s profile on campus and relatively low turn-out (69 per cent) show that the substitution of an informational campaign for a polar yes/no campaign da’mages both the quality and quantity of the voting. Thus, this tactic bears no connection to the spirit of a democratic referendum. In an informational campaign, undecided students have much less opportunity to hear dissent and critical examination of the proposal. Any dissent was left to Imprint, which wasthen accused of nitpicking and not looking at true “student interests.” In the case of the OFS referendum, John Leddy began the “No” side of the campaign last winter when he ran for president and the Federation has been clearly anti-OFS ever since. Combine this with a mail-out that contains the Federation of Students as a contact for the “No” side, and you can see how the “spirit” of impartiality has been violated. In complete contrast to Leddy’s admittance of rule-breaking, stands Joannette. If there is a student presently on campus who is completely familiar with abuses of process, it is he. Joannette acted with arrogance, as though with impunity, two summers ago when the GSA was planning renovations to the upper floor of the Grad House. He usurped the authority of the GSA’s House Committee and t-louse Liaison Officer {a full-time staff member who resigned during the controversy) to make decisions concerning structural changes to the Grad House. Then, to his own Board of Directors, Joannette deliberately misrepresented the estimated cost of adding three tiny off ices to the building, ignoring clear evidence that staff in the Univer-, sity’s plant operations department had an estimate three times his. During the BOG executive’s discussion of Paul Done and Sue Forrest’s appeal on Tuesday, Joannette reportedly asked Done and Forrest sarcastically where they had studied law. Such arrogance. One thing is certain: Joannette’s training in manipulation and evasion has been a two-year-long experiment at the expense of grad students. In an ideal world, the BOG should be just a ‘Vu bber stamp” with regard to student issues, as Joannette said in that meeting. But with Leddy

and Joannette

as the BOG’S role mod-

els of student leadership, that body ought to look closely at the credibility of current student actions during the April 7 meeting of the entire BOG, especially when the University will be the mortgage-holder for the student life project.

WhyJight to imposechoices? Yay! The ’90s. The decade of everything good and politically correct. The Wall is down, South Africa voted to continue reforms, and the Cold War is over. Some even believe that women are now on par with men. What with all the movers and shakers of the ’70s wave of feminism writing self-help and pop psychology books, one could easily get this impression. . I am of the opposite opinion and believe that we’re entering a third wave of feminism. This will mean further changes and change often frightens people. Two things appear evident, if the mass media and this country’s student press are any indication. (And don’t underestimate the power of the mass media - how many of us daiIy hear someone append the word “not” to the end of their sentences, simply as a result of Waynek World?) There is an increase in the attention given to women’s issues in the mass media; they jump at the chance to televise or print anything related to women’s movement. As for the student press in Canada, I don’t think any of the larger papers neglected to print special supplements in recognition of International Women’s Day. On campuses in general, there is a heightened importance placed on dubious orientation week activities, date rape, etc. Peciple who regard such actions and the issue in general as nonsense do one of two things: ignore it or express why they are of their opinion Last week, for example, a firstyear student by the name of Alison Horton wrote an opinion piece (“The Pros and Cons of Radical Feminism”) attacking Gretchen Zimmerman

for a lecture

she gave in one of

Alison’s classes, and for a piece Gretchen had written in the International Women’s Week supplement. At the end of her personal attack, Alison stated that she hoped Gretchen will come to understand that radical feminists like her are

the womqn’s movement more than It should be noted, Alison, that a few short years before you arrived here, Gretchen and other radical feminists succeeded in having the Miss Oktoberfest Pageant removed from this campus. Hopefully we can agree that beauty pageants are not something that a selfdeclared feminist like yourself would support, and would not like to see on campus. Gretchen started her Master’s degree about the same time you entered your first year. This isn’t to say that her academic standing hufing


validates her beliefs, but given her experience and successes with her chosen approach to feminism, I think it is arrogant to suggest that your’s is better. After all, isn’t feminism partly about fighting for and having choices, as

opposed to the patriarchal notion of imposing them? Next in the feminist vein, 1want to deal with Imprint’s newest column, Feminist Frameworks. Given the violently-worded and poorly thought-out response by two of this week’s letter-writers, I think it is necessary to further explain the column’s purpose, and perhaps even feminism. First, a bit about the reality that the column is premised on. The written and unwritten laws that run our society have been set down almost exclusively by men. When they are changed to incorporate the concerns of women,

it usually

is done

by men,

to the

extent that they can grasp what women are telling them. Society is still very much patriarchal, and all feminists are trying to change this. There are still many oddities to life that we don’t bother to question. Take the construction industry. Ask yourself why more women aren’t in it. The probable answer: because they don’t have the physical strength of men. So what? No one has the physical strength to move a house either, but we find ways of doing it. The task is

broken down into smaller parts, to make to job feasible. The separate steps that must be taken to move a house, however, are set out with the assumption that men arc doing so. Similarly, the tools they use are made for meq., literally. There’s no reason that the scaffolding, lumber, and other tools and materials couldn’t be downsized or made more efficient to accommodate women, other than the maledominated industry feels threatened and doesn’t want to. I recently had a conversation with a woman (hello, Cordelia) who said this is exactly what they have done in Japan, since the average Japanese man isn’t as physically large or strong as North American men. Successes for the women’s movement are not measured solely in terms of whether they manage to break into what has traditionally been a man’s position and be a role model, like Bondar. Thinking beyond that, it is to be called a success if women can do this without having to it in the patriarchal framework by resembling or becoming “one of the boys.” For the most part, FhGtist

Frmmworks proceeds from the assumption that readers know feminism deals with issues other than rape and abortion. These latter two women’s issues have come to be largely accepted as valid, but they weren’t at one point in time. Quebec women, for example, couldn’t even vote until 1940. The point, then, is that although two of the topics the column has dealt with so far (ie, Roberta Bondar and price discrimination) may seem trivial at first glance, they are microscopic examples that are indicative of larger

structural problems within society. A last note: feminism does not invoIve hating men. It involves a hatred of many men’s attitudes.

Bondar should be proud In last week’s Feminist Frameworks, Gretchen Zimmerman criticizes Roberta Bondar’s recent exploits in space from both a social and feminist viewpoint. We address her article from these angles also. Socially, Gretchen makes known her displeasure that “while they (Bondar, NASA, etc.. . J are busy as space-beavers, gnawing away at the frontiers of the heavens, millions upon millions of earthlings are having a hard time mastering the sometimes difficult, yet all too natural task of putting food on their plates , . .” But Gretchen suggests no alternatives; instead, she wishes to disband NASA “until something is done here on earth (to eliminate violence, poverty, degradation).” We wonder how Gretchen suggests we feed, clothe, and house ail these engineem, scientists, and technologists, not to forget those that rely on their research and spin-off industries.

The fact is NASA (“and the like”) DO make significant contributions to the social fabric of our society. It is science that has developed better irrigation methods, made medical advances (MRI, vaccinations, laser surgery), and improved the general standard of living. It is POLITICS that keeps these suggest

From a feminist perspective Zimmermyn asserts that Bondar is not a feminist, writing “any shades of feminism have been erroneously attached to her (Bondar).” Gretchen further says that what Bondar is “in fact, is ‘one of the boys’ . . . one of the spaceboys”.

Strict rules and procedures must be followed to ensure both the success of the experiments and the safety of the crew. Sorry there was no room for creative expression Perhaps Gretchen and her radical feminist cohorts are upset that Bondar chooses to not expose her breasts to the world while the

cameras are rolling an action seemingly worthy of their support and recognition. Zimmerman struggles with the question of why she is ‘so damned angry at what was suppo’sed to be a ‘triumph for Canadian women”‘. We suggest it is because Bondar, a woman, has found a constructive way to break down the walls of patriarchal domination. Instead of kicking men in the crotch, instead of telling them to ‘keep their hands off the womb, instead of whining and complaining About the price of pink razors, Bondar has followed her life’s dream to fruition - irrespective of her gender.

to Alison Horton: Could it be that our names are spelled the

same AND that we agree on the feminist issue? Brickbat to Gretchen Zimmerman: Stop wasting space! Do you write illogical, unfounded articles for fun or torture? In your article of March 20, you basically state that Roberta Bondar’s career in space is worthless. While the experiments she assisted in carrying out may not save the masses on earth, undoubtedly had great *eY significance to NASA, the crew, and to Bondar. Is not the goal of “Equal Rights” to allow every woman to pursue whatever interest she chooses? Is Bondar responsible, to the extent of devoting her life’s work, for the well-being of earthlings? I don’t think so. Every man (in the generic) would hope that his or her work will better the future of the world in some small way. I’m sure Roberta Bondar is no dif-

ferent. And, of course, you have entirely missed the impact a Canadian woman in space will have on the future. For many little boys, an astronaut is something to revere, and to dream of being. As a role model, Bondar is the manifestation and confirmation of the hope and dream that we ALL can fly to the stars. Little girls will see that dreams are attainable, and learn that any career can be theirs. Lit-tie boys will learn &at women too can be heroes, worthy of respect, and worthy of eq,ualityl And perhaps when they become men, they will remember women like Roberta Bondar, female achievers in any field, and stay the hand of violence, or silence the voice of

degradation. Alison Feniak Biology

But, I will not let the values thrust on me by society go unnoticed any longer. I will strive for change in myself and others. I will try to do what I can to make the world an equal place for females and males. I do not blame any female for wondering if I’m going to assault her, how can I? If I was to lay the blame, I would have to shoulder most of it myself, for me and the males of this world and worlds gone by. It causes me great sorrow to feel that “look” from a female, or the “non-look,” where I don’t seem to even exist, but you and I know well the reason why I am seemingly ignored.

again. When will the Co-operative Education Department maintain a consistent policy for more than a few nanoseconds? My situation is simple. I am a first year engineering student from Alberta. Early in coop seminars, the first year engineers were told to find their own co-op “placement,” due to the abysmal economic situation, by the administration. joining the multitudes of first year engineers trying their hands at the department’s suggestion of “Effective Networking” I mailed out twenty eight applications to engineering firms in Alberta. I also went through the normal co-op procedures.

Throughout first rounds, I received only one interview for which I was wholly unqualified. Furthermore, it turned out that the interview was for a different job than I had applied to. Since that had been my only interview, I was not permitted to scratch the interview off my ranking form, and the co-op advisors forced me to rank that job number one. To my complete surprise I received the job when first round placements were posted. Meanwhile I had been offered two engineering jobs in Aberta.

Forum Food ignored

Women hatincr - women?

To the editor,

To the editor, By way of clarification to Alison Horton, regarding her letter to the editor. of 20 March, 1992, here are three things that I do not understand: 1. Why did you not point out in your letter that I was the one who guest lectured your class? Perhaps because I know a littIe more about feminist theory than you do, considering I was the one asked to teach the class that day and not you. b) If you didn’t like what I said, why didn’t you raise your hand in class? 2. Where did you get the idea that 1 was “neglecting the fundamental differences between the sexes ?O Wearing similar clothing does not instantly erase the presence of ones genitals as you might have one believe I said. 3. Where did you get your definition of radical feminism? Out of the ‘patriarchal dictionary’ no doubt. Feminists of all political shapes and sizes will never get anywhere4f we continue to denigrate each other by defining women working for change in such a negative way. There are also three things that I understand quite well which you faiI to comprehend: 1. I did not say or even imply that you yourself or any woman for that matter is an idiot for “shaving wearing make-up, of perfume.” I merely attempted to point out that the extremes to which femininity is daily enforced and reinforced upon women is detrimen-

tal as far as equaIity between

the sexes goes.

2. Your wantig to call me a ‘bitch’ when I refuse to go through a door that I did not ask to be held open for me when I was perfectly capable of doing so myself, is about as antiferninist a statement as anyone could make. 3. The only person hurting the feminist movement are individuals such as yourself,

who not only strike out at other women without thinking, but who also don’t allow other women their own process of feminist epistemology. In future, Miss Horton, I hope that you wiIl refrain from slandering another woman in pubic as you have attempted to do in your letter to the editor. I received a number of compliments about my lecture in your class on

In your March 20, I992 issue of the Imprint you released a news story on the Public Issues Board Easter Food Drive. Is this story actually newsworthy by Imprint standards? I know that the Imprint is responsive to student issues and that a food drive is a noble cause. In fact I myself helped organize a food drive on Campus a couple of weeks ago. The food drive I helped organize was sponsored by the Sigma Chi Fraternity. The Brothers and friends managed to raise over nine hundred dollars in non-perishable goods by canvassing door to door. My reasoning for writing this letter is not to advertise our event. My reason is to note that drop boxes have been on campus for two weeks. Unfortunately, the press release we sent for the March 6th issue of Imprintwas not considered newsworthy. The hprint was asked if they could print the press release in the March 13 issue, however, I was informed they had lost the press release. The result was two short interviews with an Imprintreporter which were considered not newsworthy. I am glad to see the Imprint has covered the Public Issues Board Food Drive. Fur those who did leave food in the Sigma Chi drop boxes on Campus, the food will be donated to the Public Issues Board Food Drive. The Brothers of the Sigma Chi Fraternity would like to thank those people who helped make our food drive a success. We would also like to extend our best wishes to the Public Issues Board on their food drive.

growth means slow growth, as lt its human cost wilI be livs blighted by a poverty that would otherwise have been mitigated.” He advocates that the worId bank and the IMF, should encourage more rapid economic growth through foreign investment and increased yet manageable debt, manifested in “dirty,” but inexpensive, polluting industries that third world counties can afford. These are primary industries of scale, such as coffee and sugar plantations or min.&, that rely on inexpensive domestic natural resources for production, and export most of their goods to the world market. Canada is a prime example. Devaluing the currency makes these products more competitive, and exports bring in hard, non-rapid inflationary currency, such as US dollars or Dutchemarks, which can be used to buy high quality foreign goods and technology to increase production quality and efficiency. Governments are then urged to use their IMF loans to develop infrastructure and education, to help industry operate, and to encourage local business to develop. An investment in clean industry is initially too expensive for most third world countries, and based on very little net manufacturing, their environmental benefits are only marginal. Relatively stable primary industry and a supportive government generate jobs, secondary and tertiary industries, and tax dollars to help develop the rest of the country, albeit most importantly, relate a sense of re!ative economic stability to the world, encouraging further foreign investment.

South African reflects on violence : by Hayden


?he following, written by a Suuth Afn’can white, is a pmspecrive on the present situution in Suuth Afica. Perhaps the crux of our present problems is the violence generated by the extremes in our society. The extreme left is represented mainly by the Pan African Congress, and the extreme right by one political party, the Conservative Party, and several radical Afrikaner organisations of which the most powerful is the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (Afrikaner Resistance Movement). Both extreme left and extreme right are committed to violence to gain their ends, and neither is at all concerned as to who suffers as a result of such violence. The manpower of the police force is almost totally involved in preventing and/or breaking up violent outbursts of whatever kind, and are finding the task well-nigh impossible. As a conse@ence the policing of urban areas has been drastically reduced and the crime rate has soared to a frightening level, virtually all crimes containing an element of violence. Murder, rape and violent assault are no longer exceptional crimes; theft or robbery not containing one or more of those elements is now quite exceptional. I heard a politician from Nambia speaking on the radio the other day, and he made the remark that the crime rate in Nambia had plummeted, largely because the lawenforcement agencies were usually of the same ethnic group as the criminals, and the stamping out of crime was no longer viewed as Black on White, or White on Black, which is our problem. You can, therefore, visualise the vicious circle - vicious in every sense - that is generally felt is being actively perpetuated in South Africa: a riot, explosion or whatever occurs; police move in to t=ljte action (or - as has happened many times - are castigated for rrvtmoving in fast enough,; howls of protest erupt from the perpetrators, often for the sole benefit of the overseas media; criminals move into the areas from which additional

police are drawn to cope with the riots; outraged houseowners complain bitterly about the damage done to their persons and property and demand action from the Government; the picture is painted of a country in total disarray, and overseas investors move hurriedly away; the South African economy plunges, causing untold hardship to the huge majority of the populace - except of course, to the politicians, who are very well-off, and some of whom are only too happy to see the status quo maintained and indeed worsened, while they await their opportunity to move in and seize power from an exhausted country. Perhaps you think I am exaggerating. We live in a very quiet northern suburban area, not a kilometre from the police station. Not only would I not walk in the streets after dark, I will not sit on our patio or in the house with the doors unlocked unless the radio alarm button we have been forced to acquire is readily to hand. We automatically lock our car doors as soon as we are inside the car. We have spent several thousands of Rands installing a sophisticated radio alarm system. In adjoining and wealthier suburbs, razor barbed wire tops nearly every wall or fence, and electrified security gates bar entry to most homes. One has to identify one’s self even to friends by means of an intercom system between the entrance gate and the house before gaining admission. Lil carries the radio-alarm button with her whenever she leaves the house, as well as “mace” (a gas deterrent). And the funny thing is that this situation really got under way after February the 2nd 1990, when F. W. de Klerk announced the end of apartheid. Another “funny” thing is that we have, financially speaking, never been worse off than we are now: yet some 90 per cent of the population are worse off than we are. Things have been bad to very bad for some years now, but on the 2nd of February 2990, it seemed as though we stepped on to a slide of ice, and we are going downhill faster by the day with virtually nothing in view to give us a hope for a reasonably early end to the recession.

Here’s a statistic I compiled myself from the Government Gazette Legal Notices: approximately 400 people lose their houses to their creditors each week. Tomorrow it could be my neighbour, the next day it could be me. And the solution is so simple: total eradication of the violence, with full co-operation from ail politicians without thought of perSOMI gain. I suppose that’s really the funniest thought of all. A lot of hope is being placed in the Codesa Conference. (Constitution for a Democratic South Africa). Even at this level, however, political capital is being sought by various parties and enough “non-negotiable” principles postulated to make one wonder if agreement will ever be reached. The impression we in South Africa have is that most people abroad are not aware that there are 15 political parties involved in Codesa; that there are approximately 14 nations (br tribes, depending on how one views them) including English- and Afrikaans-speaking Whites, numerous Blacks, of which the largest is by far the Zulu nation, Coloureds and Asiatics; that most of these nations have their own language; and that there are features sacred to one nation which are of no consequence to another, such as religious tribal traditions and even the SZulu king - a major source of dispute at the outset of the conference. It is not, as the world at large seems to believe, a simple matter of the minority of whites handing the country over the the majority of blacks. Those of you familiar with South Africa would realise the unlikelihood of the Zulu nation happily submitting to the rule of their arch-rivals, the Xhosas, or vice versa. Some form of federation seems the only feasible solution, but it will have to accommodate the AWB and the PAC, let alone the various factions strewn between them. What then, of the “New South Africa”? If you really want to see an apartheid-free South Africa at work, look no further than at its sportspersons. For some years now there has been free and friendly participation by all races in virtually all sports; and the only cause of friction has been intervention bv the

politicians. In other fields, whether there is peace and goodwill or animosity between ethnic groups is a matter of circumstance and personality. My partner and I recently invited the staff of one of our clients to drinks and darts in our office. The guest were four Whites, one Black, two Coloureds and one Indian. We had a great evening. But I would hate to bathe at Durban or Camps Bay beaches (for example) where literally hundreds of thousands of Blacks and Coloureds have moved in lock, stock and barrel, and eat, drink, sleep and perform all other boclilv functions on the beach with total abandon &nd no regard for Municipal Police. These are, however, problems which will eventually be resolved. How we get on with one another is in the final analysis going to depend on the politicians and the extent to which they can derive personal benefit from a good or bad relationship between the constituent groups of the New South Africa. (Do you get the impression that politicians are not my favourite people?) I cannot believe that any person of any creed, colour, race or religion positively desires anything other than a general state of tranquillity in the country; unless, of course, that person sees a personal benefit in the avoidance or destruction of such tranquil&y. Nobody enjoys a crime-wave, violence, fear or penury, and if these evils can be excised from our land, we all could only benefit even the politicians. 1 sound negative - I am certainly not happy. But I must believe that all will come right, for to believe otherwise would be to endanger my very sanity. In this I am encouraged by the fact that the key parties are now talking to one another on an official basis, and also by the support this country is now gradually winning from the rest of the world. Believe me, that factor is absolutely critical. And when violence is contained, and the economy bounds upwards again, I shall positively smile!

University Shop Plaza by Sandy Atwal Some rewording. I don’t know what feminists believe in. (I have never fancied myself one.) I hear some 2f them criticize affirmative action programs as insulting and simply proffering handouts, but I know some women {and men) who call themselves feminists and supportaffirmative sction programs as undoing the injustice of history. It seems as though their tenacity is matched only by their lack of common ground. I don’t really know what Marxists believe in. (I thought I used to because I fancied myself one back in grade 13. (but I grew out of that.)) That’s not surprising in itself, but what I Find really confusing is that most Marxists don’t know what “they” believe in. That is to iay, I could ask an avowed Marxist for some basic tenets of his-philosophy, and I could turn around and find a Marxist who would swear on Lenin’s grave that Mamist numberone didn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground. 1 think what my (and their) confusion stems from is a question of dogmatism and fulfilling that end. Now I don’t mean to be insulting to feminists and Marxists, I myself am hardly one to criticize others for pushing their beliefs, (as I have u$ten been told) but I think that when you firmly believe something to be right, just good for society, or whatever, there’s a much bigger than problem than just deciding what is best for others (a rather mountainous problem in and of itself). 1 think that the problem is that the means that the dogmatics are using are usually in conflict in the short term, for that end. The further good of society, the final end, is propped up as the shield behInd which any position can supposedly be defended. Those who attack the means are accused of disagreeing with the end. Whether or not I agree with fern&m has nothing to do with my opinion on alfirmative actioa”If I happen IO ‘be disagreeing with

some feminists at the time, then that’s a shame, but you can’t simply say, “You dis agree with the means I am using, therefore you disagree with the end that I sqt’ it is furthering.” There is no for/against dichotomy. The problem with any “ism” iI that it sets up a they/us situation which can be fun for arguments, but doesn’t really help whatever it is you’re arguing for. The most interesting aspect of this problem is that this is a universal problem. If I’m arguing with someone about a subject I rrcl& care about and I realize that I’ve talked my way into a comer, ie. I’ve been caught in a serious contradiction and it’s obvious, what do I do? I’ll recognize the other person’s point, and thank them for enlightening me. Bullshit! I’ll start attacking them (withoul being mean) or Ill just pretend that they’re making superficial comments, or whatever, but I s&e as hell won’t admit I’m wrong. In fact I know absolutely nobody who does. Ask yourself this question. When you’re arguing with someone who you disagree with, how many of you openly-admit you’re wrong. Liars. My point being this. Hard-faced dogmatism leads to paranoia. People who don’t recognize objections to their position aren’t doing anybody any good. I think searching out objections to your position - I mean going out of your way to find objections is the responsibility of anyone who believes anything. If you’re wrong you’re at least wiser than those who wave the banner of X-ism. Keeping a stockade of witty retorts against those who uestion what you do indicts you far worse tx an anything you could do to your opposition. As I promised, a rewording. A paranoid isn’t someone who has all the facts, it’s someone who chooses their OWI-I facts.

.FEMINIST FRAMEWORKS Humour or Hostility by Brenda


Humor is often gender-specific, not only that men and women find different things funny, but that humour can be a tool for aggression and even oppression on the job. Hostility, masked by humour, has the desired effect of further silencing women. Television has played a disturbing part in setting rules for gender-related humour. On “The Newlywed Game“, the answers were often degrading and directed at the women in their traditional roies. “I Dream of Jeanie” was damaging to women’s image because it portrayed a captive woman, wearing seductive clothing, who adored the man she called “master.“ “The Honeymooners“ was another pop ular sitcom that horrified me as a child. Ralph was a loud, aggressive husband who threatened to send his unhappy Alice “to the moon” with his FIST on every prograin. Ralph got all the laughs and Alice just got older. It was during an episode of.“The Honeymooners“ that I had my first maniage-shy thoughts. “The Patty Duke Show” hit home with Good Girt vs. Bad Girl conflict with the Bad Girl learning a moralistic lesson to conform. “Bewitchtid” is the story of a lovely, powerful, and talented woman who agreed to put aside all her potential to become the everyday housewife of an ad man. “The Dick Van Dyke Show” had a similar premise. The woman in the show gave up dancing to be the wife of a comedy writer. He got all the laughs while she played the serious and colourless wife. Even “bssie” involved a female dog playing the part of a male dog. Did Pa and the and boys on ‘*Bonanza“ need competent intelligent women on the show? The occasiona/ woman was portrayed as golddigging, tragic, or dishonest, “My Three

Sons“ didn’t even need a female part except as an occasional intrusion. “Father Knows Best“ was a joke title in my childhood home. The Good Girl image is a product developed by advertising, the media, the church and parents. Good Girls are controllable and didn’t buck the comfortable and

Another traditional form of women’s humour is the self-deprecating joke, standard fare in the 1950s and 1960s (remember Phyllis Diller?). This kind of humour is often an act of hostility turned inward in order to not jeopardize men or make the audience feel threatened. Acceptable female humour allows women to make fun of themselves, , and children because nsible for others. This is

funny: “I pointed to the senior vice president and announced ‘Bill likes the way I do his shirts.“’ Anybody who can come up with such a quick and perfect response hardly needs to justify her position. Being the respondent or audience of humour as a girl, and later as a woman, is equivalent to spending your childhood watching from a window as other children played. When girls are discouraged from being funny, it limits their participation in the worId and inhibits growth. . In many families, when the women of three generations are together, there is loud laughing, shrieking, side-splitting humour that makes your face ache after an hour. These women are funny. They tell old stories over and over. They do the voices, the body language and provide the setting of jokes, incidents and their history. Nothing is sacred in the kitchen of a funny woman. The atmosphere changes when they sit down to eat with men. The humour is suppressed, and lost until later when they gather in the kitchen for more. Good Girls don’t swear, sweat, or satirize. It is alright for girls/women to have accomplishments, but it is not alright for them to be funnier than men. As Gilda Radner ofien said “It’s always something!“ Erica Jong has been quoted as saying that “if men know what women laughed about, they would never sleep with us!“

same as dexcriblsive or unattrac-

able more community. This kind of humour is sometimes uncomfortable for men because it challenges authority and refuses to take many aspects of male authority seriously. This is very different to the type of humour in traditionally male television shows where someone must be on the receiving end of every joke. Roseanne doesn’t even try to achieve perfection: “If it’s five o’clock and the kids are still alive - hey, I’ve done my job.“

an think on her feet can have an intimidating effect on men. Oscar Wilde wrote, “Nothing spoils a romance so much as a sense of humour in the woman - or the want of it in a man.“ Some jokes are unfairly associated with the sex of the speaker. When anchorwoman Connie Chung was asked a fairly insensitive question by a new co-worker about the relationship between her position as an Asian-American woman and her rapid rise in the field, her response was brilliant and

Science, Technology, Exercise your eves! from UW News Bureau You’ve heard of exercising your body for improved health. But few people realize that the human eye is a muscle thatcan need exercise to stay sharp. A team of scientists at the University of Waterloo is investigating ways in which people with myopia (near-sightedness) can improve their vision, specifically through exercising their eyes. The team is concentrating on this exercise method hoping it may lessen the need for “invasive” techniques such as surgery in helping those with myopia, says Dr. George Woo, a professor of optometry at the University of Waterloo. Woo says that it has been fairly common to attemDt to correct severe mvonia with surgery, but ‘&at there are possibli &de effects with this Drocedwe and this has spurred the search’for other treatments. Woo’s team includes Dr. Winston Yang, an ophthalmologist, Julie Quant and Joseph Cho, currently in Hong Kong continuing his studies. Yang is an eye surgeon who is studying the effects of eye surgery on patients in Toronto hospitals. Woo has &en investigating myopia and its causes for many years. One of his related studies in the mid498Us involved people who work on video display terminals (VDTs). He explains that myopia is an inability of the eye to focus accurately on objects that are far away, or, a visual defect in which images are focused in front of instead of on the retina, so that objects are seen clearly only when close to the eve. Whatcauses myopia? Woo says theories of what causes this common condition are conmany, rwim3 from environmental ditions to simtlle hereditv. Bv “envirotiental” is meant &ae everyd& conditions under which the eyes must L&on, particularly in the workr&ce if an individ&l works in situations’which can induce eve strain. Myopia is quite common i’n the Far East, &ar&-t~ at a v&y young age, he notes. Thus any studies that can lead to improving this widesDread condition has imnortant health implicsitions for whole groups’ of people. As well, there are significant implications for people everywhere who rely on maintaining healthy, accurate eyesight for their jobs, such 3s airline pilots. For many people, developing shortsightedness, and with it the need for corrective eyeglasses, seems to develop in the teens. But Woo says there may be ways to forestall that unwelcome development. ‘Our research leads us to believe that-there may be ways of improving the focussing aility of the eye through exercising the eye muscle. There have been some encouraging results in our trials,” he says, The methods involve so-called accommodation training. This, simply, is exercising the eye muscle and teaching the eye to relax he accommodation so that the image it is trying is brought into focus. It’s a bit like exercising other parts of your tiy, such as jogging for a healthier heart. If you exercise your eye muscle, it can perform its precise functions better for longer periods Df time. In controlled studies, the UW scientists used training devices to enhance the accommodationabilities of myopic individuals. One study included 12 sqhool children aged six to 12 years. After an initial assessment and test~ng, subjects were monitored every three months for a period of nine months. Results showed that those receiving the accommodaion training had an improvement in unaided &ual acuity, and thatthose with i&ally poor accommodation also showed substantial mprovement after undergoixq training.

Toxic Waste Alert: why

?W!!IRGand CUSEN are


Imagine living in a town where your water supply is “unfit for human consumption.” You have to make weekly trips to the firehall to pick up a supply of bottled drinking water for your family. Your regional government advises you to travel 15 miles to a nearby city every time you want to shower or bathe. People are moving out of the town because of severe allergies and illnesses and a heavy odour resembling burned metal often permeates the air you breathe day in and day out Does this sound like a frightening excerpt from a book describing eco-doom or ecological Armageddon? Well, although it may be difficult to believe, these living conditions have become very real considerations for the residents of Elmira, Ontario. Elmira, with a population of approximately 7,500 people, is located just twenty minutes north of Kitchener-Waterloo in the midst of prime southwestern Ontario farmland. At first glance, the town appears to be a tranquil, small community, an ideal place to live. Elmira is a picturesque town and common sight of Mennonite families passing through on horse and buggy emphasizes Elmira’s connection to a history of simple, rural living. However, as you walk from the downtown area toward the eastern edge of the town, that image of Elmira is drastically transformed to one of a modem, industrialized town. Smokestacks become visible over the rooftops of houses and the industrial sites of Uniroyal Chemical Ltd., Vknicolor Chemical Ltd., Nutrite Inc., and Sulco Canada Colours Ltd. are a few of the companies which comp&e what John Jackson of Great Lakes United refers to as a “miniature chemical valley.“ Elmira’s Uniroyal plant, which manufactures chemicals used in the production of pesticidesand rubber, has been fingered as one of the main culprits in the contamination of Wa’s water supply. Uniroyal has left a legacy of decades of chemical production and waste disposal which have resulted in severe pollution. Solid waste from the manufacture of the chemicals 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T, which were used to make Agent Orange during the Vietnam War in the late 1960s and 197Os, was disposed of in pits which formed lagoons on the property. These toxic substances were left to ooze into the soil and the aquifer beneath the town. (An aquifer is a permeable rock laye_r within the earth’s crust and acts as a reservoir for groundwater). In 1981, traces of these chemicals were discovered in wells around the Uniroyal site which were constructed to monitor contamination in the aquifer. Throughout the 198Os, environmental concerns continued to grow about Uniroyal’s effluent levels and the spread of contamination in the aquifer. Concern was expressed that the contamination could spread to the Grand River which flows into Lake Erie. In 1984, the Ministry of the Environment issued a control order to Uniroyal to improve their waste management practices. In response to this, Uniroyal began a two-year toxic waste clean-up of the site which resulted in the excavation of 1,691 drums of toxic waste which had been buried in the past. Vamicolor is another company which has contributed significantly to the contamination of Elmira because of its reckless handling of toxic wastes. Vamicolor billed itself as a “solvent recycler.” However, in February, 1990, an employee of the company blew the whistle on the company’s practice of simply dumping chemical solvents directly into sewers which feed the Canagagigue Creek Severe pollution of the Canagagigue Creek had been suspected for many years. This creek flows through Uniroyal property and feeds into the Grand River, ultimately emptying into Lake Erie. Fishing and swimming in the creek have been avoided by Elmira residents for years because of contamination concerns. In 1963, farmers complained about

testing of the municipal wells conducted by the Ministry of Environment (MOE). It was at this time that two of the wells, which supply most of Elmira’s drinking water, were closbd dnwn __ __-_

trations of NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine). The presence of NDMA, a known carcinogen, has been linked to Uniroyal’s manufacture of chemicals. Under the Ontario Ministry of Labour’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (Ontario Regulation 654/86), NDMA is classified as “a known toxic agent for which exposure values have not been established and to which ANY

exposure is to be avoided.” In addition to NDMA, Uniroyal and the MOE have identified over 200 known chemicals and 20 unknown chemicals that are presently in the water they are discharging. Before the closure of the wells, most Elmira residents had accepted environmental degradation as a trade-off for the economic stability created by industrial development. However, some citizens were outraged bv the poisoning of their water supply anvd decided that the pollution had become unacceptable. They felt it had become necessary tb take action. A citizen’s group had formed in August of 1989 in Elmira to oppose the construction of an incinerator on Uniroyal property. This called Assuring Protection for ITOUPt

Science NEWS IN BRIEF Success stories in preventing

water pollution

Keeping the water clean is on all our minds these days, but how successfu1 are we? The Water Network, based at the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Environmental Studies, is hosting a one-day symposium March 31 on “Water Pollution Prevention - Some Success Stories.” It wili be held at the Waterloo Inn, from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Prof. Marie Sanderson, director of the network, says the news media tend to focus on culprits in the water pollution story - industries, municipalities and farmers. “Not so well known are the success stories in the war against pollution in the Grand River region as well as the Great Lakes basin as a whoIe,” she says. The Great Lakes are cleaner today than in the 196Os, as a result of extensive sewage treatment and a shift toward recycling of wastes and reducing toxic discharges. Among industrial and municipal experts presenting success stories are Jack Hull, Region of Waterloo; Ray Funnell, City of Guelph; and Dr. Grace Wever, Council of Great Lakes Industries, Rochester, NY. Waterloo’ -North MPP Elizabeth Witmer will chair the morning session. UW engineering

Researchers in the engineering faculty are doing over $1.5 million worth of contract work for Automation Tooling Systems Inc. Two research teams from mechanical engineering and systems design engineering are part of a recently announced five-year, $9.4-million project at the Kitchener company. A total of $4.7 miIlion is provided by the Ontario Technology Fund. The project will study the construction of automated assemblymachines used by the electronic manufacturing industry for handling placing and automatically soldering surface mount comyonenls onto rinted circuit boards. Profs. Hugh Martin an B Paul Niessen, of mechanical enmeering, will receive $713,000 for research on soldering technology and bonding. In systems design engineering Profs. Andrew Wong, Helen Shen and Mohamed Kamel will receive $slO,OOO for research on vision technology. All three belong to the department’s Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence group.



and the Envbonpmentm 1 Is our drinking water safe? focusing on water pollution in Elmira, Ontarib Tomorrow’s (APT) Environment, decided to shift its focus to water quality concerns when the severity of water pollution was revealed in November. APT adopted the goals of “attempting to ensure a safe and healthy environment for those who live, work, and raise families in Elmira and Woohvich Township, They are actively concerned with finding ways to reduce waste and the levels of pollution in the air, the water and soil” (APT Environment Mission Statement). APT began holding public meetings soon after the closure of the wells to raise awareness about water contamination and to gain support from the com-

Elmira/Uniroyal committee on our campus so that in the fall we will be able to jump right into action. We have been established as a Workgroup with the Waterloo Public Interest Research


APT also began to do intensive research on Uniroyal’s past, studying the many technical reports written by environmental consultants which had been hired by Uniroyal over the last 10 years. Through self-education, many APT members, who previously had no formal science or engineering education, developed an excellent understanding of the technical aspects of the problem. As a result, Uniroyal and the MOE have

Because Uniroyal appealed the orders, APT was thrust into @al entanglements consisting of two sets of environmental assessment hearings. APT gained legal party standing at both sets of

met with APT to critically question clean-up proposals. APT has also voiced concerns about present production and waste disposal practices of Uniroyal. In APT’s opinion, the MOE has been lenient with Uniroyal at the expense of the health of the ecosystem and


the Canagagigue Creek. APT, however, is appalled that both Uniroyal and the MOE consider this program acceptable as a “clean-up” method. There are 83 known contaminants in the groundwater being pumped from the aquifer and treated. Of these contaminants, 25 exceed the province’s limits for these substances, but the MOE has approved the discharging of the water despite this knowledge. APT feels that discharging these levels of chemicals is very irresponsible, since this is spreading the relatively contained pollution in the aquifer throughout the Grand River Watershed. One of APT’s biggest accomplishments has been to obtain a greater degree of public input on decisions affecting the community which were formerly made behind closed doors. There is, however, still a great need for more - ‘action upon public concerns and the development of a comprehensive remediation plan to sufficiently clean-up the water supply and the damage that has been done to the environment. Pat Potter, who reviews environmental literature for the CBC and is a very prominent environmental activist in Ontario, referred to Elmira as “Canada’s Love Canal” when she spoke at the Ontario CUSEN (Canadian Unified Student Environmental Network) conference. This conference was held February 7-9,1992 at the University of Western Ontario. Many other we&respected Canadian environmental groups are also outraged at the situation m Elmira. Potter ignited a lot of enthusiasm among the conference participants about the Elmira issue. As a result, the Ontario regional divi-

The Elmira/Uniroyal struggle is an approp riate issue for CUSEN because it has international implications. Uniroyal is contributing to pollution in the Great Lakes via the Grand River and Elmira is a case example of severe industrial pollution. If Elmira can’t be cleaned up, what hope is there for more widespread environmental clean ups? Uniroyal is also very much under American control Uniroyal’s activities in Elmira seem to be a good example of a US company exploiting and mismanaging Canada’s resources and using our land and water as an industrial waste sink After deciding that this would be CUSEN’s

Why should we as residents of KitchenerWaterloo be especially concerned about the pollution in Elmira? We are located downstream from Elmira along the Grand

River and the K-W area is going to rely increasingly on the Grand River as a water source with the completion of the Mannheirn water project. Evidence of the effects of Elmira’s pollution on the rest of the Grand River is beginning to surface. Six days after pumping and treating of water began at Uniroyal in January, 1992, NDMA was detected downstream at Ohsweken at a level more than 10 times considered safe. Earlier tests also detected NDMA at Brantford and Cayuga and residents at Six Nations reserve are into their seventh week without drinkable tap water because of the contamination (K-W Record, Friday March 20,1992, p* Al). Quite a lot has been done since the CUSEN conference to make the Elmira campaign a reality. Three University of Waterloo delegates who attended the conference have been trying to recruit more people on campus to help with the campaign. Our efforts have been fairly successful and the group has expanded to approximately 10 people. Since there is such a short amount of time remaining in the school term (and final exams are fast approaching), we decided to set reaIistic goals for the end of the term. We are going to do as much as possible to by the foundation for an

liaison with our group by means of creating a position on their co-ordinating committee for one of our members. Individuals can take action on any of the four suggestions listed above and we hope to launch well-organized campaigns on these issues in the fall. We hope that our group will be able to continue to work over the summer in developing ideas and strategies for the campaign.

Members of our group can be contacted by calling WPIRG at (519)-885-1211 ext. 2578 or (519)-8849020. We will also be having an information booth in the Campus Centre on March 31 from 9:30-4:30 pm to raise awareness about the Elmira issue - please stop by and talk to US! A great source of general information on Elmira’s water contamination is an article in the March/April, 1991 Harrowsmith magazine by Bruce Headlam entitled “Nor Any Drop to Drink.” (A lot of the facts in this article were obtained from that source).

It is essential that people educate themselves about water quality issues in their communities. Too often we just t&e water quality for granted until a serious threat



We hope that CUSEN and our WPIRG Workgroup, will be able to provide a lot of assistance for APT Environment in Elmira, By using our network’s resources and communication links, it is hoped that increased national attention will be brought to the issue of water contamination in Elmira. It will only be through increased public awareness and pressure from people throughout tie Grand River Watershed and across Ontario and Canada, that the Ministry of the Environment wiIl be made responsible for accurately monitoring the situation, and that Uniroyal will have to execute a truly effehve clean-up.

The Greek to become defensive co-ordinator by Paul Condon LJW Athletics

by Paul Condon U-W Athletics

Tom Kieswetter, an assistant coach of the basketball Warriors for the past two years, has been named to replace Don McCrae as head coach of the team, Director of Athletics WaIly Delahey announced this week. In addition to his basketball coaching, Kieswetter will be the League Manager in the UW Campus Recreation program. This job will entail the organization and operation of many competitive. leagues that operate for the enjoyment of UW students who are not competing at the interuniversity level. One of his first responsibilities as the head coach at LJW will be to attend the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union championship. to be held in Halifax,’ Nova Scotia this weekend. While in Halifax, Tom will attend the meetings of the National Association of Basketball Coaches of Canada. “The Warriors are left in good hands,” said McCrae, UW’s Coordinator of Interuniversity Athletics, who will be assuming other responsibilities within the UW Athletic Department. ‘Tom knows the game and he knows about the preparation and commitment required to produce at the interuniversity level. He developed a tremendous number of interuniversity basketball players while teaching and coaching at St. Jerome’s He has the respect of coaches across Canada.” Kieswetter began his association with the University of Waterloo back in 1968 when he enrolled in kinesiology. For the next five years, he was a valuable member of the Warrior basketball team. In his first year with the team, he was named rookie of the year. In the four succeeding years, he was twice named to the OUAA allstar team (1970 and 1972). Kieswetter was the captain of the Warriors for two years during that time. In 1972, Kieswetter was selected to the Canadian National Team and gained playing experience with the team during tours of the United States, Mexico and Europe. He graduated in 3973 with a BSc in honours kinesiology. He continued his education and qualified as a high school teacher. His teaching career has seen him employed in Brantford, Ontario, a year at Lutherwood in Waterloo, and for the past 16 years he has worked for the Waterloo Separate SchooI Board, teaching and coaching, first at St. Jerome’s High School in Kitchener and then at Resurrection Catholic Secondary School also in Kitchener. Kieswetter began his coaching car-

Chris Triantafilou, an assistant coach with the Waterloo Warrior football team since 1987, was named this week to replace Chuck McMann as the team’s defensive coordinator. McMann is leaving Waterloo to take a position with the- Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. “We’re familiar with Chris’ outstanding work ethic and we know that hell do an excellent job in his new position with the football team,” director of athletics Wally Delahey said in announcing the appointment, which will take effect on May 1. Last season, TriantafiIou was responsible for the defensive secondary of the Warriors, one of the best units in the country. Four players from the secondary were selected to the OUAA all-star team in the fall 1991 season. Since 1988, two of his players, Richard Chen and Larry Vaughn, reached all-Canadian status. In addition to his coaching tasks, he worked as an assistant to the athletic department’s facility manager. While he will no longer have responsibilities in this area, he will be taking on other jobs in athletics: coordinating the UW Athlete of the Week program, staging of the department’s awards banquet, coordinating the department’s audio-visual equipment, and assisting in the supervision of the men’s interuniversity council. Triantafilou played university foot-

eer while still studying at the Univerof Waterloo. During his sity co-operative workterm in 1970-71, he directed the St. Jerome’s junior team to the city championship. Following his teaching-coaching positions, first in Brantford and then at Lutherwood, Tom returned to St. Jerome’s as its head basketball coach in 1976. Over the next 12 years he had a record of 380 wins and 140 losses for an outstanding winning percentage of 73 per cent. During that time he directed his teams to three championships in the Waterloo Regional competitions, three Western Ontario Regiunal Championships, and the All-Ontario Championship in 1987. In his effort to obtain the best possible competition for his teams, he regularly participated in tournaments across Ontario, across Canada and into the United States. He coached the Ontario Provincial team in the mid-1980s and he coached the Twin City Titans in the early 1980s. + For the past two years, Kieswetter has divided his time between his teaching responsibilities at Resurrection SeCoryhry School and his coaching at the University of Waterloo. Kieswetter’s playing career did not end when he graduated from the University of Waterloo. Following graduation and while pursuing his teaching career, Tom played for teams located in Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, London, and Toronto. While playing for these teams, he was a member of four Provincial championship teams, a national finalist, and one national championship team (Toronto Estonia 1976-77).

Women’s Basketball by Laura Thomson

Sunday, March 22 marked the season finale of the Women’s Basketball league. This season was full of excitement and a few surprises. The Battling B’s, X-Terminators and Shooters led the league in points, while the legendary Renison Rockettes, Foil and Eyesores struggled to round out the seven team league. Sunday saw the defending champions, Shooters face the Battling B’s first appearance at a women’s final in four terms, so needless to say, expectations were running high. The game ended in a 29-18 decision with the Shooters being once again victorious. High scorers for the Shooters included Maureen McDonald with 13 points and Sue Penison with 10. High scorers for the Battling B’s were Alison Childs with H) points and Robin Haraden with four points. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the captains and players for another great season. This is my last term as women’s basketball convener and player. BroomballToumey

He’s a hard worker and he knows what it takes to win championships, Chris is also an excellent recruiter. He’ll be a great asset td our program and to the athletic department.” Following graduation from WLU, Triantafilou worked as an assistant adult director at the A. R. Kaufman YMCA in Kitchener and in 1986-87 he worked as an assistant director at the Lang’s Farm Community Centre in Cambridge. In his first year as an assistant coach with the Warriors, Triantafilou worked as the receiver coach under then-head coach Bob McKillop. Triantafilou suggested moving star receiver Richard Chen to a defensive back position and Chen earned allCanadian status at that position in

Congratulations also goes to the Endangered Species, the feisty runner-up team that kept the scores between the JERBS close, losing 1-O early in the tournament an 3-O in the final.

Three strings broken,; harsh words spoken . Circle C Bombsheher

March 24 by Paul Done Imprint staff It wasn’t perfect. Technical problems plagued the show from the outset: there were three, three, three broken guitar strings; on-stage bickering between lead singer Tom Anselmi and guitar player Chris Thorvaldson made the air thick with tension; Anselmi’s sore throat left him squirting antiseptic into his mouth. Circle C gathered up the fragments and rocked through a hour’s worth of material, split roughly equally between stuff from their eponymous debut and newer unrecorded material. The broken string even created a bit of history as Thor-

valdson re-strung his guitar with one dating from the days when he and Anselmi were in Slow, the riotstarting rock monsters whose legacy is one unobtainable mini-W, Aguimt the Glass. Despite all the problems, Circle C at least managed to communicate some part of their brilliant and disjointed approach to the writing and playing of that lumbering beast known as rock.

Where their album was made more complex by arrangements which included instruments such as kora, charango, a horn section, and organ, the songs were stripped to their rock ‘n’ roll bones live. Despite expectations to the contrary, the complex dynamics of their songs were maintained on stage. The songs twisted and turned, following blind alleys and diversionary paths to nowhere, returning restating original themes. Anselmi, singing from behind a wall of hair, would alternately mumble, then scream his way through lyrics of desperation

and loneliness.


The set opened with some of quieter moments from Cir& C “?I’ and “RSVP,” and the mood set early on - no between song ter or song introductions -

the like was


just music and the occasional apology for the evening’s lack of polish, The levee of control broke on occasion and Circle C would cut loose for an

adrenaline-charged rush through “epiphone song” or “State to State,” for example. For the most part, though, the aesthetic was one of awkward self-revelation. It was fitting that the show closed with the shimmering “Odette,” the best song from cirde c. Mutterings were heard that “they have no stage presence or “they don? play to the audience.” So what? They

stood there and played music. What else is expected or required? There’s nothing punishably wrong with lame attempts to “communicate with the audience” or droning stage patter, but the music is the proof of the pudding. Perhaps part of the problem is the basic tone of Circle C’s magic. Their uptempo numbers are fine, but

haunting introspection is Anselmi’s domain. Songs about isolation, bitterness, and numbing depression don’t lend themselves to bouncy banter. These are pointless asides. This was a fine band playing on a mediocre night, and that’s infinitely more worthwhile than a mediocre band on a great night. Bootsauce or King Apparatus’ best show will never

be a match

for Circle C’s worst because the former are pointless and boring while the latter is superb. They were off-form. I won’t defend that. They’re also Canada’s best band. I will defend that. The fragile moments when the magic overcame the mayhem were transcendent and precious. One would have been enough; there were more.

Judy Bats fight crime in TO JudyBats with Paleface L&s Palace, Tomnto Monday, February 23

nonetheless ‘insfits at every opportunity that pot is the greatest thing since sliced bread. The JudyBats, however, were stufiendous. I first saw them about a year ago when they opened for John Wesley Harding. Perhaps because they were an opening act and didn’t feel they could spread their wings, they turned in a mildly entertaining but unspectacular show. This time, though, they were the headlining act, and they took wonderful flight.


by Lance Manion Imprint


The “three bands for the price of none” free showcase at Lee’s Palace last Monday didn’t quite shape up as hoped. For one thing, Eye & I, an up and coming funk-influenced outfit that was scheduled to appear, didn’t show up. For another, Paleface - act number two - was a disappointment

The live performance

to say the least, Paleface is a troubadour in the mold of early Dylan, armed with an acoustic guitar (“no-nukes” sticker and all) and one of those silly har-

monica rig-ups. What with his raw, howled vocals and his anti-pop soneting leanings, he seemed deliberately dticult to listen to (shades of Da&e1 Johnston). However, the real problem was that one, the songs weren’t very good, and two, the guy had nothing compelling to say. What was meant as incisive social commentary (a query on the “drug laws up here;” an account of a run-in with a hotel clerk) came off as moronic. Ultimately, Paleface resembled no-one so much as those obviously brain-damaged types (you all know at least one) who



drove home

just how good the songs really are. For example “Is Anything,” which seems too hackneyed and obvious on record, seems made to be an overthe-top, tongue-in-cheek set closer. And the ‘Bats were also better able to bring out the subtleties of a song like “Lullaby - Weren’t We Wild,” which sounded even more powerful and poignant on-stage. They drew extensively two albums - last ye&s

also previewed a new song, “Go.” And of course; the two great covers they’ve recorded (the Kinks”‘Anima1 Farm” and the 13th Floor Elevators’ “She fives in a Time of Her Own”) were highIights of the set. While each of the bandmembers (first row: two guitarists, bassist, singer; back row: female keyboardist,

The Tom Jones song ‘Its Not Unusual” reminds me of a great scene during the movie where the main characters try to shoot chickens inside somebody’s mansion; it’s only two minutes long, but I usually rewind a few times to increase the pleasure. The song by the gospel choir is entitled “CanZ Nobody Do Me Eke Jesus” and again comes from a great scene in the movie, while Boozoo Chavis is a zydeco artist whose ‘Zydeco Heehaw” ends off the soundtrack where the movie ends, in the backwaters of Louisiana.

There’s no lack of feedback craziness; a few songs are connected with rather lengthy lines of feedback, but it’s an embellishment and the band seems to recognize that. There are some long songs, but you don’t notice

The Ocean Blue are a quartet from Hershey, Pennsylvania. Their 1989 self-titled debut album contained three prominent tracks - ‘Between Something and Nothing,” “Drifting, Falling,” and ‘The Office of a Busy Man” - and was promising enough to land them a supporting role on The Mighty Lemon Drops’ North American tour. The band’s current release, Cprulmn (which means”sky blue”), is essentially a vehicle enabIing songwriter David Schelzel to escape the realities of daily life through his dreams. In some cases, Schelzel’s search for sanctuary is obvious: “Americans Dreaming/ Of England in the rain,/ Of Swiss alps in snow,/ Of tiny German towns,/ Of ruins at dusk in Rome” (“Questions of Travel”). In others, it’s more ambiguous: “A better place we go to/ Without a trace we will leave/ A new face we will see/

came out in 1954, “King of Fools” was released four years later. If one does not read the f&e print, it is impossible to distinguish between them and a Social Distortion original. I can’t compare them to the oiiginals due to a lack of resources, but can say they easily hold their own on the album. The attitude in Mike Ness’ lyrics is pretty consistent. The emotions in the songs are almost as thick as the Brylcreem in their hair. They center on such things as broken hearts, going to jail, and generally not fitting into society - not that they want to. Social Distortion is the epitome of the American Cruisers from the 50’s: it is no surprise that their songs include “Bye Bye Baby,” ‘This Time Darlii’,” “99 To Life,” and “Born to Lose,” While lacking any one track that jumps out at you like “Story Of My


Life”did on the last one and “Ring of Fire” before that, many of the tracks merit placement on any Summer Driving Tape that you might make. These songs readily pop into your head when you are forced to carry on a conversation with someone you would rather kick in the knee. They are also good to listen to when you get off of the phone at 4 am with someone you wish would crawl back under their stone, so you could step on it. In particular, “Cold Feelings,” “Born to Lose” (complete with a David Wilcox intro), “Bad Luck,” and “Bye Bye Baby.“ If you ever get in the mood to kick a crushed can as you walk down a back ally, or pick a fight with some guy (or girl) twice your size, then this album is for you. If you want something to listen to as you drive standard down

the highway (automatic cars are aimed, not driven) at 120, with the top down (or the roof open), this is for you.

It’s a summer album with an attitude. It lacks funk, techno beats, dreamy psychedelic lyrics, soft philosophical messages, and world issues. Somewhere Between Heaven and He// is a solid album well worth your money, so long as you earned it.

VW vans were parked at alI angles, tents were up, and everyone was dressed in psychedelic tyedied clothes and long, flowing skirts. The police remained a polite distance around the perimeter of the commune and seemed content to turn a blind eye to whatever was happening on the inside as long as it stayed inside. Occasiotilly, two of them would wander into the depths and walk around with mischievous grins on, perhaps realizing the paranoia they were causing the people caught in the throes of an acid tip. Most of the people following the Dead around are far too young to know anything about the scene in the ‘HIS, but that does not stop them from feeling right at home in a decade they were originally conceived in. To make money for food, tickets to the show and other excesses, bagels are baked, shirts are made, necklaces are displayed, crystals are mined, and

Edge Series 1,lO pm

by Regina Schuald Imprint staff



On March 31, it is timely that one should be reminded of the “Battle of Trafalgar” which took place two years ago in London, Great Britain. The infamous “Battle of Trafalgar” recapitulates the bitter memory of the demonstration initially peaceful against the outrageously unfair poll tax policy of the Tory government which turned into a riot. This installment of the Human Edge series shows the other side of the coin. By using illegally shot amateur taken by material, filmmakers, which, contrary to the version,” displays the “Official brutality of the actions of the police. Sources estimate that between 200,000 and 300,000 people showed up. at the demonstration. These peo-

pie were deeply annoyed and frustrated about the poll tax which forces every owner of a house (no matter ifit is a palace or a shack) to pay a certain amount of money for each member of that household. Needless to say, this was extremely unfair policy unpopular among British people, who were already threatened by recession and unemployment. The anger of the citizens manifested itself in a huge demonstration, formed by people from all over the country, in London’s Trafalgar Square. The massive crowd was described by eye-witnesses as peaceful and the atmosphere was “almost like a carnival.” Peaceful, that is, until police intervention. All of a sudden, after being brutally forced by the police to stand up, people who sat down to block the road became aggressive. The peaceful demonstration turned into a terrible riot with Bobbies using their riot shields to beat up people, mounted divisions of police officers threatening people with their horses, and people who therefore had no recourse but to run for their lives. This illegal footage shows exactly how violently and brutally the police

behaved, mostly for no reason. This evidence runs contrary to the official version, which talked about the ;hocking and brutal behaviour of the demonstrators with disgust. The program set up the common contrast of official version versus unofficial version. I found that “Battle of Trafalgar” wa_s quite convincing, although I was very critical of it in the beginning. It certainly seems pretty easy to blame the police for everything. There’s a particular psychology of mass demonstrations which is hard to understand. The police might be scared of the masses of people showing up, as there are usually hooligans who just partake in demonstrations to beat up people and therefore cause violence and misunderstandings. I think that it is fair to have a look at both sides because the police have a difficult job. But, this tape obviously reveals that there was basically no aggression from the demonstrators’ side - the violence was started by the police. Being German temporarily living in Canada, I wonder when either of these nations will ever take tb the street to demonstrate about their own unfair taxation systems!

expands, running the film rather than in a pattern of gags. We find very few movies in any genre with such a combination of dark awareness and loving acceptance, because Leigh has the rare skill of an equilibrist. Every character is full of bull: they manipulate each other, they lie to the.mselves, they tell dumb jokes, they indulge in childish behaviour, and they can’t handle their emotions. But Leigh doesn’t make their perversions seem evil, a la Peter Greenaway; nor does he use the characters’ inglorious sides to gross us out, as the Coen brothers would. Instead, we laugh, recoil, and admire all at once. Leigh’s working methods involve lengthy rehearsal periods and improvisation by the cast. This results in amazingly complex characterizations and dialogue that is ultraflows

The work of British writer/director Mike Leigh may be a well-kept secret, but it has not gone unrecognized. Since making his first movie in 1971, Leigh has been hondured with prizes at the Chicago, Berlin, and Venice film festivals and, last year, the US National Society of Film Critics awarded his comedy Life is Sweet its best picture award. Leigh deserves all he can get; Lij.5 z$Sweet showcases a delicate, polished aesthetic and a remarkably humane attitude. We don’t see many comedies with this kind of rhythm - the humour

You’d think high had hired non-professionals to play themselves, rather than highly-trained British actors carefully formulating characters. Nothing is romanticized in this portrait of a working-class English family and their friends; it’s beautifully dishrbing. Alison Steadman plays Wendy, a housewife and mother who works part-time in a clothing store for toddlers. This woman, a cousin to the inhabitants of Corunation Smet, lives in a row of suburban town houses with her husband Andy (Jim Broad21-year-old twin bent) and daughters She has settled into this existence, extolling her “love handles,” refusing to acquire a cat, declaring “I’ve never been for a walk in my life!“Yet she diligently dusts the ballet trophies on her shelves; in odd, solitary moments she starts swaying her hips and rolling her arms; and once a week she teaches a dancer&e class to children. realistic.

Similarly, Andy works at a loathsome restaurant but dreams of running his own place. This is what enables his reprobate drinking buddy, Patsy (Stephen Rea), to sell him a beat-up old hot dog canteen. One of Andy’s daughters, Natalie (Claire Skinner), seems to have her life together - she helps out around the house, has a steady job as a plumber, and is sating for a trip to the States - but she disappears to unknown companions and undisclosed activities.

There might be a little bit of dog manure on my shoes, and you won’t like that.” Hmmm. Pretty weird. Sometimes these characters are very annoying, but that is all part of Leigh’s plan. Our feelings about them oscillate like our feelings about people we actually know oscillate. Wendy is often obnoxiously cute speaking to adults, shell say “Where’s your little coat?“, “Here’s your little purse, ” “bok at his little face” - and her smug giggle at her own jokes (passive-aggressively at others’ expense) soon becomes unbearable. Nicola is deeply troubled but we don’t necessarily identify with her; when her boyfriend complains that he wants to treat her like a real person, we know what he means (though he is far from a sensitive man).

an&omits into a bag. Thii is a view of suburbia that exposes more idiosyncracies than Ed&d Sbxwrhands, but less garishly. Leigh doesn’t make the peculiarities jump out at you You just keep furrowing your brow, thinking “that’s pretty weird.” Natalie and Nicoia do not get along in one golden exchange, Nicola queries, “What do you know about paranoia?” and her sibling retorts, “Not as much as you, obviously.” Meanwhile, Timothy Spall portrays the chunky Aubrey, another friend of the family, as a rather inscrutable type who has sudden lusts, a penchant for financial folly, and a bizarre decorating sense. (At his new gourmet French restaurant, he hangs a wild-cat’s head on the wall and displays an aquarium of petrified fish.) Aubrey drinks himself silly, and Wendy, trying to sober him up, mutters a line that could only have been improvised: “Look, you’re bending down now, you’re going to be sick.

conversation in which two people come close to sharing a piece of truth about themselves. That’s all. Andy’s canteen remains parked in the driveway, Nicola’s anorexia may or may not be cured. And yet, this is an emotionally affecting film. Wendy suddenly finds herself yelling at Nicola, “We don’t hate you. We love you, right? Stupid girl.” Even the way Andy casually glances through a copy of Penthouse is poignant especially when coupled with Andy md Wendy’s intimate but sexless bedtime snuggle. Rachel Portman’s gentle music fits ’ Leigh’s tone perfectly and Dick Pope’s cinematography manages to be comic without cheapening the characters. There is much that is unattractive about these ‘little” people, yet Leigh carries us through that and beyond. The contributions of the cast, encouraged by Leigh’s methodology, create such a believable slice of reality that Wendy, Andy, Natalie, Nicola, and even Aubrey become family, There’s nothing sugary about L#% is sweet, but it is definitely a treat.

Oh, Sonnydxby, Imp:

Khar do yotr guys ken apartbm your own stug?



They play on the album. Lemmy sings all through the middle section - the slow section - of “Hold Tight” and the verse right after it. The guitar solo on that song is done by W&o. It’s Mike Howe who’s singing really high on ‘Touching Cloth.”

Basically, we all listen to dif;ferent things. There are certain things, though, that we all like: Prince, Michael Jackson, Peter Gabriel’s Pizsu’on, Madonna, AC/DC. Sons of Freedom are my favourite Canadian band; they’re devastating.


rfvou weren’t in a band what would ,vou be doing?


Oh, I don’t know. The only thing that I’d maybe want to do is in film. Editing and directing, I’d love to do that. As it is, Pere and I cut all of our own videos. In the past, I’ve had all kinds of stupid jobs. I worked as a scooter courier in Paris for a few years, and I was a proof reader for a translation company. I’ve been in bands since I was 16 or 17, and I don’t think I could get a “regular” job; I need something that messes me up*




Motorhead) and Mike Howe (Metal Church) in Bullk liner by Kenton Augerman Imprint staff


Prior to the Bootsauce concert at The Twist on March 19, guitarist Sonny Greenwich, Jr. graciously consented to be interviewed. This is what transpired:




Judging b-v th4 fact that you g-u~ys ure pluying tie :VPulucr in Turontol for Afive c0nsecturivP nights (March 25-29) it wuuld stem that pur pupulu~‘@ is at an all-time high. HOW do you account. for this:) I think it’s because we have a new album out. The be’s Palace dates just sort of came up, they were just sort of offered to us. We haven’t played in Toronto for quite a long time, and it’s nice to play in a small club where people can actually see you and hear things rather than being somewhere (larger) where the sound is awful.

Because we were under pressure to bring 7’hr Brown A/bum in under budget, we were stiffer than we would like to have been. We tried to make sure everything was right on the beat, Instead of doing that this time, we did what.frlt good.


We all have our own personal beliefs, but as a band, we’re not activists. We’re not preaching anything; we’re not the preaching type. If you want to listen to the message in “Love Monkey #9,” then that’s fine. It’s a pretty basic message, it’s not anything new or outrageous. If you don’t want to listen to the message, then just listen to the tune. The tune’s kind of fun anyway; it’s catchy, it’s stupid. “Payment Time” on Thr Bm~?rr Album is about aboriginal rights, but because we didn’t make a video for it, people didn’t catch the message as easily. Because we made a blaringly obvious video for “Love Monkey # 9,” the song has taken on a bigger head than it really requires, Rock music is not brain surgery.


I think that it’s going to be “Big, Bad & Groovy.” We’ve started the video, but it’s in the very raw stages of production at this point, so I have no idea if it’s actually going to happen.

of the Alan


Fan club.

How did all of this materialize? Had these guys heurd the hand and want to record with yuu?


No. Our manager, Steve (Ship), knows Motorhead, and while we were recording in Warren, Rhode Island, they came through on the “Operation Rock N’ Roll” tour. They had a day off and we were having -a giant studio party, so we invited Motorhead, Metal Church, and Dangerous Toys over. They came, they played, they split.

We’ve never really had a drummer who was part of the band. The band is actually the four of us (sonny, guitarist Pere Fume, bassist Baculis, and lead vocalist Drew Ling). We do all of the writing.

Yes, a drum machine and computers. But we haven’t been using the drum machine recently. We’ve been using octopads, playing sampled sounds, drum sounds from anywhere. But you’re actually physically playing with your hands, so it isn’t as stiff and it feels like a real drummer. And Johnny did all of the real drums on Bull.

It was raining and it was cold, so it was awful in terms of weather. On the last day, I was so pissed off that there was no sun that I went into the ocean anyway. Plus, it’s not really my scene. But once I said to myself, “alright, you’re in Arrimul Hou.w,~’ it was okay, it was fun. Once I said, “Okay, it’s Florida, it’s Spring Break, what the fuck? Let’s have a riot,” it ended up being a good time.

Ian Astbury saw us play once at The Apocalypse Club in Toronto. He really liked us, and he said, “if I can ever help you guys out, I’ll do it.” We never really expected to get anything out of it - then, out of the blue, they’re on the phone saying, “okay guys, let’s go.”





A homage to the classic suspense films of the past. *Kafka’ mnfwms that Steven Soderbergh is one of our most exciting young filmmakers. Jeremy Irons deserves another Oscar for his performance!” -Jeff Craig, SIXTY SECOND PREW’W


We played Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, London, and Manchester, largely performing songs from Thr Brown A/burn, which just came out over there. We also played a couple of tunes from Bull. We were received very well; I was really surprised. The Cult’s audience is starting to move towards the heavy side, so I was surprised that they liked us as much as they did. The Cult guys are great guys. Billy (Duffy) keeps to himself more than Ian does, but they definitely treated us very well. Imp:
