That’s right . . . the University of Waterloo’s student newspaper has made the great leap out of the publishing dark ages by ditching its typesetter in favour of IBM 486s and Pagemaker. Since we are learning as we go along, you may find some glitches in this issue and some changes in format in the weeks to come, but don’t worry - we’ll be experts soon. Volunteers interested in writing news, arts, sports, or features; taking photos; or gaining valuable computer layout skills can come down to Campus Centre room I40 next Wednesday and Thursday (Sept. 9 & 10) between I2 noon and 4 pm. All volunteer positions marked vacant on page 7 are up for grabs at our first staff meeting of the term on Friday, Sept. I I at I 2:30 p.m. Our next issue is Friday, Sept. 18. After that, we publish every Friday of the fall term until December 3, 1992. .

‘I Single and Sexy ‘I by Bernard Keamey I m p r i n t staff Ah, Frosh Week. Thousands of mindless drones herded about campus, kept amused through voluntary enslavement. It is a valuable c h a n c e f o r p o w e r - h u n g r y o m n i s c i e n t upper-year students to achieve some semblance of vengeance for their first-year humiliation. W i t h a l c o h o l s e r v i n g as the main food staple (tempered only by the many outdoor BBQs), Frosh W e e k is all about participation and introduction, (toboth the institution and each other). Sounds Iike fun? Froshweekisalsoaboutregistration, line-ups, English Language Proficiency Examinations, human car washes and sex. Issues that is. SitigZe and S e x y i s o n e - h o u r play that examines sexual attitudes in the ’90s. Written as a collective work, the play features an energetic cast of five UW drama students who combine humour, wit, and verve to candidly address some important i s s u e s including sexual harassment, date r a p e , h o m o p h o b i a , a n d STD’s

(sexually transmitted diseases). Established four years ago as an effort to replace a dull lecture format, Single Sexy proved not o n l y a greatsuccess,butadefinitehighlight of Frosh Week events. Sponsored primarily by the Health and Safety department at UW and directed by drama department member Darlene Spencer, the collective drama seeks to comprehensively address many socially difficult problems, utilizing entertainment as the primary vehicle of cornmunica tion. Everyone enjoys a g o o d l a u g h . SingeandSexyisabout laughing. Single and Sexy is also a b o u t t h i n k i n g . Oooh, s c a r y . W h e n questioned about the process of collective play-writing, S p e n c e r r e s p o n d s , “ t o the creative process of writing, each person carries different experiences and viewpoints? A l t h o u g h Single and Sexy, as a concept, has been around for four years, thanks to its collective style, each year an entirely new show is introduced. “To p r e v e n t t h e s h o w f r o m becoming stale,” adds assistant

director Tara Kallwitz, “we decided not to cast returning actors (Alanna Mclean and Mark McGrinder) in the same roles.” If you are a first-year student and actively participating in the m y r i a d o f F r o s h e v e n t s , Single and Sexy has been scheduled in sometime during your undoubtedly hectic week. If however, you are lucky enough not to be part of the myriad of Frosh events, take this article as a s t r o n g r e c o m m e n d a t i o n that you schedule in a showing of Single and Sexy sometime during your undoubtedly hectic week. Spencer warns that given the play’s popular history, it would be wise to get to the Theatre of the Arts (in the Modern Languages Building) early.. Shows run daily as follows: M o n .

Shinerama -- not just washing cars by Peter Brown

Imprint staff It’s a tradition of community service that has accompanied Orientation Week for man years, but this year,Shinerama w’lJf e a t u r e a new twist -- a green one. Instead o f a l l o f t h e thousands of first-year students coursing through the streets next Saturday (September 12) to wash cars to raise money for cystic fibrosis research, many will be helping to beautify parts in the Region of Waterloo. “We want to affect the city as a whole,” says Erick Homier, codirector of UW’s car-washing efforts. “Kitchener-Waterloo is already overflowing with students from U W and Wilfrid Laurier University on Shinerama day. “ Hornier says that the splitting of fresh e q u a l l y b e t w e e n t h e t w o j o b s reflects UW’s increased desire to improve relations with the surroundin community. U W frosh have been split by faculty between the S p i r i t Day and Green Day activities.

Terry-Lee D’Aaran was charged with committing an indecent act after sunbathing topfree in Kitchener’s Victoria Park in June. Late in August, assistant crown attorney Denise Dwyer elected to dismiss the charges, reasoning that D’Aaran had been

Feds looking for new ombudsperson by Derek Weiler and Peter Brown Imprint staff

O’Donnell says. The assistant position, formerly held by Fran Wdowczyk, came o p e n 1astJanuaryand was n o t advertised until July. A graduate of the University of Guelph, O’Donnell took the o m b u d s erson position in May, 1991. B ePore that, she worked as the Federation of Students’ academic researcher. The fact that she will continue to sit on many of the same committees as she did a s ombudsperson will help ease the transition. O’Donnell feels thatboth the position of ombudsperson and its conflict resolution goals are not advertisedenoughbytheuniversity faculties, which are more likely to explain the formal procedures of dealing with a grievance to a student, than the informal ones, such as the ombudsperson. “This tendency increases formal ap eals,” O ’ D o n n e l l s a y s . “About 8s er cent of appeals are handled in Pormally, but even more could be.”

Fifteen months after taking t h e p o s t o f o m b u d s p e r s o n , Leanne O’Donnell will be applying her problem-solving skills to the residence administration. O’Donnell will start as assistant to residence warden Ron Eydt next Tuesday, September 8. Replacing her is Tina Heffeman, who will act as interim ombudsperson for six weeks until a permanent replacement is found. She says that she will be workin a lot with the Tutors and Dons oBthe Villa es in her new job, especially with # rosh Week upon the university. One of her new challenges will be to review the residences’ policies and procedures in light of the current social climate which did not exist when those documents were drafted years ago. “The policies have to be updated to deal with alcohol awareness, homophobia, and AIDS awareness, among other things,”

But she is optimistic about the increased profile of the position that should come with the university’s new student appeals policy. In serious student appeal cases, where expulsion or probation are possible. outcomes, the ombudsperson must be present during the student’s appeal meetings. O’Donne&aysthatshemay s o m e day be interested in a newly created e t h i c a l behaviour/ human rights coordinator within the university administration, Heffernan, who has c o m p l e t e d s t u d i e s i n s o c i o l o , has experience in ‘student me Fiation from her involvement with the L a n d l o r d a n d Tenant Information Office and plans to apply for the permanentombudspersonposition. The skills necessary for the ombudsperson include experience in counselling, knowledge of university policies, research skills, and oral and written communication skills, according to Federation of Students general manager Fred Kelly. ,

The University of Waterloo library will be closing earlier as a result of a planned six per cent cutback in campus expenditures over three years.

Forum Fireside Chat by Peter Brown “Look at the person on your left Now, look at the person on your tight Only one ofyou will graduate from this university - and probow all of you will have your creativity, individua&.y, and curio&y sucked from you. And idealism? What’s thrl?!” - an orient&ion speech you’re not likely to hear in the neur future.

Of course, the above is a satirical caricature of an address I heard during ml fresh week here -- and you are very likely tc hear a similar one. But wait.. . let me tell the story about the best orientation week ‘ydressing down” speech, delivered to me b) some sergeant-major-like math professor about, oh, seven years ago. I sat with a few hundred of ml partners in scholastic endeavour in MC 2065 or 2064 ( y o u k n o w , o n e o f t h o s e h u g e lecture barns) for an orientation session for co-op math, my major of the moment A stern man at the front lectern had the unsavoury but crucial task of presenting us giddy, cocky, idealistic fresh with hard, cold reality, with the world as it really was. “For most of your lives, you’ve all been at or near the tops of your classes,” he said. “Well, you aren’t anymore. Here, you are just average. If you had gone to another university, for another mathematics program, you might still be exceptional. But here, you are not Everyone in thi+ an Ontario scholar. You have all accomplished enough toget you into mathematics at the University of Waterloo; you can’t rest on those Iaurels.” I can see the positive intent behind his comments -- with university enrolments shrinking yearly, that intent is become increasingly relevant You cannot simply be satisfied with getting into university, or even i n t o a p r o g r a m f o r w h i c h a 90 per cent average is a prerequisite. Except for t h e exceptional among us, university is a hell 01 a l o t o f w o r k - - a complacent attitude wil soon land you in the failure column, However, his comments reflect the ideology of performance and competition that, while permeating postsecondaq education in general, underlies and informs the actions and standards of the Universiq of Waterloo more than most. The tendrils ol the private sector are enmeshed in the culture of UW, both through our co. operative education program and through research funding from high-technology firms, Economic forces, such as reduced government commitments to postsecondary education, will only serve to strengthen the bond between the ivory tower and financial pragmatism. But this bond does not come without its ideological baggage, including notions of success which demand quantification, productivity, efficiency. The goal of the university +comes, under these strictures, the delivery to society and industry of a competent employee on a cost-effective basis -- that is, basically the same goals of a factory that s t a m p s o u t wingnuts. If that’s not a picture of a university education that you relish, then act against that tendency. Take electives in as many of U W s six faculties as the Registrar’s Oficg will let you. Always askquestions and demanc that your professors put as much effort intc teaching you as they do into their research AboveaH, do notallowthis institution to manufacture an industrial marionette OUI of a bright, young person fresh out of high school.

The ;- big high school It has become’somewhat of a tradition a t I m p r i n t and other student newspa ers to produce, as their first issue for the fa K term, something we call “The Frosh Issue.” In frosh issues, we and other kind p e o l e a c r o s s c a m p u s try.20 i m p a r t w i s d o m w e K ave accumulattid o v e r o u r ears at this institution. Having been here1our years, I find that the tradition is becoming tiring, but this space needs filling, and you can see by the masthead that few peo le are around to fill it. F i r s t l y , remem ii er that this is a big high school, in every respect. And if you are in math, science, or engineering, this will become even more apparent. If you people (to borrow from Ross Perot) want to pass, you have to write down what the professor says, do the repetitive problems for four years, and try not to figure out where your area of discipline fits in or affects other parts of the world. Engineers are es ecially confined in this respect. I have a i!r iend who recently graduated from that program, and he understandably expressed anger at that faculty for limiting the number of electives he could take over the course of his stay (I think the number was six). I met him in a third-year environmental studies class, that he finally was admitted to after much wrangling and arguing with administrative types at engineering. It’s unfortunate that engineers are rarely allowed or encouraged to challenge themselves intellwally w i t h c o u r s e s o u t s i d e of the engineering faculty, but then again, it’s understandable, The more narrow an “education,” the better the “educated.” Everyone else in various arts, English, and other non-technical coursesbest stay there if they wish to obtain a well-rounded education. What do I mean by “wellrounded”? Well, to define by contrast, let me say that engineering isn’t going to teach you about third-world poverty, feminism, or why B o b R a e ’ s g o v e r n m e n t i s n ’ t m u c h differentthan Pe terson’s. I’mnotsayingthatengineersarestupid o r that one is stupid to enter engineering; 1 simply believe t&t more of an education - an arrav of courses from different faculties shoildbe incorporated into what is essentially a job-training program, and a very good one at that. Conversely, a degree in some nontechnical programs such a fiie arts is much

less likely to guarantee the holder a job. A lot of these programs also leave 40 or 50 per cent df thestudent’screditsin the”elective ‘status, allowing one to receive, say, a joint-honours, double major, or a ma’or and a minor. Returning to tA e h i g h s c h o o l t h e m e d UW is a big behemoth of a high school. Everything is, well, bigger: classes, c l a s s r o o m s , e s s a y s , e x a m s , eople, and so on. If you can put up with the Pirst year of two of the XXXX 101 courses with hundreds of students in them, it begins to get better. By fourth year, most classes have no more than 20 people in them and actually stimulate the brain through discussions and the ability to question the professor. Meanwhile, you can raduate from XXXX 101 without: even L owing the professor’s name, remembering her only as a speck at the front of the class. While people in job-training (technical) iled courses h a v e a s u b s t a n t i a l w o r k l o a d u p o n t h e m , wifi l a b s , uizzes and so Porth, m o s t o t h e r s t u d e n t s f i n 1 they have less w o r k than in high school. People in olitical science, E n g l i s h , e n v i r o n m e n t a l stu Bi e s , g e o g r a p h y , etc learn first and foremost how to chum out dozens of pages of essays in the least time possible, and still receive a decent mark. For example, I picked a topic, researched it, and wrote a &page p a p e r f o r a course earlier this ear in between 20 and 24 hours. I don’tconsi Jer myself a genius by any stretch of the ima ‘nation, but I received an A-minus for that !r ittle effort. This held true for other people in the class as well. And, stories like this may seem incredulous right now, but will become standard fare in a year or two, Why, you ask, is this? Because, as aforementioned, this is a high school. Whatever standard that exists for quality of w o r k r a n g e s f r o m l o w t o non-existent. Our p r o f e s s o r s h o u l d h a v e h a n d e d those e s s a s right back and told us to rewrite them for Je next w e e k . But uritenured professors cannot afford to fail an abnormally high portion of the class even i f students should be failed, and tenured professors rarely become such b y g o i n g a g a i n s t t h e f l o w . M o r e students, bigger classes, more money, more profit.

The big barn

Now, the rest of this piece is probably of interest to both new and returning students.

It is not so much a legend, but more an unhappy legacy. The legacy is that of Federation Hall, trumpeted often as N o r t h America’s largest student-run bar.

Fed Hall o ned in 1985, and was a sometime in 1988 or early great success unti r 1989, at which point its assistAnt manager, Dave Playfair became manager of the Bombshelter. Ironically, the Bombshelter had been doing poorly until that point, but b u s i n e s s quite picked up after that. Fed Hall has steadily lost huge amounts of money since then, although I think they broke even last year (dependin on which accounting methods one uses). 8 buck McMullen is still the manager, and was the manager when Playfair left. People will continue tocomplainabout Fed Hall on a regular basis both in these pages and in private, and no o n e w i l l b e f i r e d o r even reprimanded. Why? Well, I’ve been trying to find out for a while now, but haven’t been given anything remotely resembling a satisfaclory answer. If you ask why something hasn’t been done to make Fed Hall a profit-oriented b u s i n e s s , ou will run into the following r h e t o r i c : 1 r a lot of new bars have opened up in town and are taking our business (ohhh, nasty stuff, that competitiveness thing); 21 it’s so bi that a lot of people have to be here, or else k ey’ll leave (uh . . .); 31 the deejays have to play dance music because it’s that sort of a bar (but -); 41 it’s not because Playfair left it’s just ‘cause the “novelty” of Fed Hall wore off (wonder when the novelty of the Bombshelter will wear off and drive students off campus . . .) In order to, I suppose, improve the novelty, the Feds spent approximately $30,000 on a laser light system and smoke machine for that dancing feelin and a couple, grand on p o o l t a b l e s , s h u f f l e t o a r d , etc to create “The Locker Room”, a sports-oriented section of Fed Hall. And, while all this money is being sucked into a stagnant and vacuous Fed Hall, the Bombshelter apparently has to fight for authorizationand money to implement small projects costing a few hundred dollars. Yes, the Bombshelter that has kept the Federation we all of Students, the student overnment ay over 20 dollars to ea ct t e r m , f r o m g o i n g r? ankrupt. This subject has been, and will continue to be, a constant source of disagreement and conflict among students and decision-makers and it is my hope that

Editor’s note: the following letter appeared in the July 24 edition of /tiprint. me two letters which follow amired rir response to R during August

Camera sad To the editor, What the hell were “walk a breast” promoters thinking of? I went to their silly little demonstration with my camera, hoping to get some nice shots of tits, my camera didn’t even c l i c k o n c e . I g u e s s G w e n ’ s s u p porters are all fat and /or ugly and this is the o n l y w a y they can get men to l o o k at them. Nice try - too bad they only attracted hoards o f o n l o o k e r s l i k e myself. PS - To the guys with the video camera - can I get myself a copy of the tape in case I missed a nice set?

Please apologize, Kevin To Kevin wherry, RE: Your letter to the editor of the Imprint published July 24,1992 - “Camera Sad” In response to the above-mentioned letter, we, your fellow students at the School of Urban and Regional Planning (undersigned herein), feel we should make you aware of our position. Though we do not deny you your right to an opinion, or to express that opinion, we find your comments inappropriate. Your words were as insulting to Ms. Jacob’s women supporters as to women everywhere, and an embarrassment to the student community at SURI? But, more importantly, your behaviour could cotititute 8xual harass-merit. In its documentation, the University of Waterloo clearly states that sexual harassment can include behaviour such as “derogatory or degrading remarks directed toward members of one gender - usually women”. If proven in a court of law, sexual harassment is considered illegal under the Human Rights Code. That is why we are not taking your commentslightly,andareurgingyoutoapologize to all concerned. Also note that, as a result of your actions, a formal motion is being prepared for the School of Urban and Regional Planning to officially recognize the University’s policies on sex-ual harassment. Finally, be advised that, if your comments were meant to be funny, none of the undersigned thought they were, Brad Bain Karen Beazly Anne-M&e Bouthilette Margaret Burnett Charline Cormier Angela Coulas Tina Colleen D’agostino Peter Genzinger Bev Hindle Noel Hulsman Cathy Maid Steve May Kevin Maya11 Kerrianne Melick Jamie Olmstead Grant Osboume Craig Paskin Tracey Pillon Neely Law Pamela Sopp Leann Wagner Scott Zavaros

Kevin says: l I apologize To the editor, I am writing you and the Imprint’s readers t h i s letter t o a p o l o g i z e f o r m y improper and deplorable remarks published in the forum section on July 24. Although I do not support the cause that Gwen Jacobs (sic.) and her followers are

fighting for, the way I ridiculed and attacked their efforts was uncalled for and undoubtedly immature. Had I even reflected on my comments for a minute I would have submitted a letter detailing how I believe that a woman’s breasts are a sexual region and that Gwen Jacobs (sic.), if s u c c e s s f u l , will have taken all of the advances made in sexual harrassment and assault and quashed them. So, I apologise to you and your readers, and especially to those who I directly insulted - the women w h o bared their breasts that d a y . T h e i r campaign has been nothing but clean and proper, although they may be breaking a law or two, they most certainly did not deserve m y i d i o t ’ s c o m m e n t s .

The Fed exec says Hi!! - ’ Welcome toFall’92at UW! We thought we would write you a quick-update to let you know wbt’s new since last winter and to give your something to read in the lineups! The Federation of Students has introduced yet another service to make your lives a little bit easier! The Student Part-time Employment Centre (SPEC) will be open Frosh Week and the first week of classes in Campus Centre room 135 from 1 p.m. to 5 pm. and in CC 206 for the rest of the term. In this centre, you wi.lI find information about all part-time jobs available for students on campus. Federation Hall and the Bombshelter have each had improvements over the summer. The Bombshelter now has an even bigger and better patio and an official beach volleyball court. Fed Hall h a s a n i m p r e s s i v e cedar ‘Back Porch and two official beach volleyball courts. Be sure to check them out! Once again, we will be offering the Free Before 9 p.m. concert series. Watch for concerts such as Kim Mitchell, 54:40, The Big Bad & Groovy Tour, Thomas Trio & The Red Albino to name only a few. A campus-wide safety audit will be administered this term through the Women’s Safety Grant. We have hired a co-op student to help with the coordination of this project

Canada’s only independent student-owned and operated music store, downstairs in the Campus Centre, and check out the selection of CDs and cassettes. And now for the political update! Subsequent to our recent withdrawal from the Ontario Federation of Students, we started to work on developing our government representation The results have been very exciting. Waterloo, along with the University of Toronto, Brock, and Wilfrid Laurier have begun to link together an the Ontario organization called Undergraduate Students Academic Council (OUSAC) and represents 75,000 Ontario undergraduates. The current main focus is funding and accessibility to postsecondary education and we are committing t o effective improvements to the system. We will present a new funding proposal to Student Council at the beginning of October. Student Council has called _ a referendum concerning our mehbership in the Canadian Federation of Students. Voting will occur in next February along with the Fed elections for 19934 These issues concern you -- get informed. If you have any questions or concerns, please, come up to the Fed Office in Campus Centre room 235 or call 888-4042.

All across Canada, University Newspapers are printing their first papers of the fall term f o r t h e i n c o m i n g froshlings. S o m e o f the articles in them are informative p i e c e s , a i d s t o g e t t i n g a r o u n d p a r t i c u l a r u n i v e r s i t y c a m p u s e s , w h e r e to eat, where to watch movies, where to drink and more pragmatic bureacra tic information. Others are more direct ( a n d u s u a l l y m o r e c y n i c a l ) p i e c e s o n w h a t t o r e a l l y e x p e c t f r o m U n i v e r sity. This piece will be one of the latter. By far, the most prevailing attitude in the university sphere, both in terms of the social aspects (movies, music, books...) as well as in the university courses themselves is a desire to be alternative - make that Alternative. An example to illustrate. The recent Lollapalooza festival was named by some as an Alternative Woodstock (an interesting oxymoron in itself). The bands were Alternative, the music was Alternative. However most of the bands on stage, such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Soundgarden and Ministry are selling hundreds of thousands if not millions of records. This obviously raises the question Alternative to what? The idea that the music played by these bands is somehow above the top forty toilet is also pretty silly. Ministry, for example, are a very shitty band playing as repetetive and mundane music as any Mariah C a r e y o r N e w K i d s o n the Mock. In the classroom, the Alternative trend is also towards similar bullshit. Deconstruction being first among equals. This literary theory which is supported by its adherents as a useful technique in breaking down and thus analyzing texts is in fact a rather remarkable self-defeating concept. If, as deconstruction holds as one o f its beliefs, all texts and theories are basically divorced from any actual reality and any meaning can be derived from them, then hopefully the deconstructionists would at least be honest enough to apply this theory to their own ideas thus (one can only wish) disappearing into the vacuum of their own inanity. Deconstruction, however does not apply its own laws to itself or to its bedfellows - feminism, marxism and relativism. Due to some odd self-congr&ulatory desire, deconstruction is the hottest thing in english programs now - the literary equivalent of Nirvana if you will. It is, of course, shit (Deconstruction, that is, not Nirvana - well...). This is not the case in all situations, University will in all likelihood introduce high school students to ideas that secondary schools are too anal retentive to try and discuss. Ninety nine percent of the Mainstream is shit, but ninety tie percent of the Alternative is likewise ka ka. Remembering this is not an easy thing to do, but will stop you from becoming a total moron. It won’t save you completely because university is as good at souldestroying as any other institution. It may not turn you into a complete vegetable, but by the time your reach fourth year, you’ll probably beInsane or writing incomprehensible columns for the campus paper. -

Co-op concerns: and what you can do about them by Jason Sack special to Imprint An article I submitted in the February 21,1992 issue of Imprint (entitled “How you can help coop”) aroused some attention from the co-operative education department here at UW. I still maintain that “networking” will be the key to the survival of co-operative education and that responsibility rests withus s t u d e n t s t o o p e n l y p r o m o t e co-operative education wherever possible. I would like to further delve into some of the issues and concerns surrounding the co-operative education system in the hopes of stimulating a dialogue between the Department of Co-0perative Education and this forum, Imprint. It is my hope that students and co-ordinators can work together to form a more interactive system of evaluating, upgrading and maint a i n i n g o u r p r o g r a m s a t UW as the leading edge in Canadian education. Concern #1: Does a university education successfully prepare a student for the work world? Discussion: I would say no, a universityeducationonitsowndoes not successfully prepare students for the work world. In fact, part of the problem that I see with the present co-operative education system is that themain mission or thrust of universities as institutions is still to produce scholars, not employees, and yet employers still maintain the fallacy that a university education is excellent preparation for the work world. Many of us came t o u n i v e r sity because in high school guidance counsellors spoon-fed us the belief that a university education ensured us a good career. Perhaps as little as ten years ago, that may have been the case, but today a student needs so much more; hence the premise that co-op education began under -a mix of theory and practical experience. I would argue that, in gene r a l , a college d e g r e e i s m o r e effective in preparing someone for a specific occupation than a university degree and that perhaps the liberal educations of yesteryear are not sufficient to help Canada remain

competitive today. And, in a time when Canada’s competitiveness as a ’ n a t i o n isbeing challenged, I think it is imperative that universities reexamine the type of education that they provide and the utility of the students who emerge from its institutions. While co-operative educat i o n a t U W d o e s s e r v e as a s t r o n g mortar for what a student will need to adapt into the post-university “working world,” I do not feel the university is making a sufficient enough effort to bridge with the corporate world so that the student can be more useful to his/her emp l o y e r t h r o u g h o u t t h e “coop experience”. T h i s i s a n a r e a w h e r e p e r haps universities could learn from community colleges in setting their curriculums. Concern #2 : What are specific areas that our co-op education system could improve? Riscussim: In co-op arts programs, all students are required to take Computer Science 100, an introductory computer course in Apple Macintosh systems and software. While this serves as a good basis for students, an even stronger basis wouldbe tohaveanadditionalComputer Science course (unlike thecurrent CS 102 course that deals with programming) that teaches accepted office-standard software programs like WordPerfect 5.1, Lotus l-2-3, and Harvard Graphics, and even some MS-DOS for personal computers. I understand that the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences offers a course in personal computing and applications, Ret 209, but this course is limited to recreation majors only. The majority of arts students are not going to be using programming in Pascal or Turing or Cob01 (from CS 102) or C or Fortran in our jobs, but few of us will be able to work in an office environment without the most basic knowledge of word processing. The majority of u s a r e m o r e c o n c e r n e d w i t h leaming word processing, spreadsheetingpresentationgraphits, and desktop pubiishing techniques that give us a leading edge in the office over most employees. I can safely say that in my life I will never have call to write programs in computer languages,

only to use application software! CS 102, with its emphasis on programming, is a wasted course as far as applicability in the workplace is concerned, for probably 99 per cent of all arts students! ’ By making a new PC-based computer science course available, we as co-op students can gain marketable skills as we go through nearly five years of interviews and w h e n w e b e g i n t h e q u e s t f o r a fulltime job. Not everyone enjoysworking with computers, but few stud e n t s w o u l d a r g u e w i t h t h e reahty that experience and computer knowledge are definite assets in the search for e m p l o y m e n t b o t h i n t h e coop program and beyond. And, at least if an accredited course were available those who are interested could take the course and add to their list of marketable skills. The reality is that almost no one who intends to get an entrylevel position after university will be able to avoid computers in the workplace. Even our present engineering programs lack the inclusion of the most basic software applications in lieu of programming theories and languages. With the _ speed that the computer industry is changing, is this a practical direction for the university to take? I think not, especially when you cons i d e r h o w d e p e n d e n t o n computeraided design (CAD) the technical occupations in engineering have become. In fact, many engineers need word processing skills and management accounting skills in their careers after university anyways. T h e u n i v e r s i t y administrationmay respond that the onus is on the student to obtain those necessary skills but I don’t believe that is a reasonable, logical assumption to make for a co-operative university whosereputationisstakedsohighly on the perception of both quality and practicality in its programs and its w o r k p l a c e m e n t s ! The “old school” universities (Queen’s University, University of Western Ontario, and University of Toronto) are still turning &t graduates who do not possess any of the practical skills and experience that our graduates are coming out of university with, and this is where the University of Waterloo is, in my opinion (and in the opinion

of industry and the corporate world) far above the competition. I feel sorry for many of my friends from other universities who d o n o t share in the co-operative experience that I have had the opportunitytodo;manyofthemhadsummer jobs like working for landscaping companies, tree planting, student painting, or similar “honest work” that is generally good for the pocketbook but will probably not lead to a career move. If these courses in practical education were made part of our c u r r i c u l u m , w e w o u l d a l l b e more employable and more valuable to our coop partner companies and o r anizations; we could save them at Keastsomeofthetrainingexpenses involved in the most basic office practices. Having computer skills might make it easier for students who do not get placed through regular interviews to find work at home if they had some tangible skills that they could take to the local perscrlnel agency where computer office

skills are in demand in temporary placementsandshort-termcontracts year-round. Cuncm # 3: Co-op jobs are disappearing due to economic slowdowns and budget restraints in many large companies and government departments and placement rates are lower than they have been before. What is being done to alleviate this problem? Discussion: This is an area of great concern to me as it should be to all cwp s t u d e n t s . W e p a y h i g h tuition fees for the privilege of being in a co-operative education program and for good reason: we pay the fees because we believe in the value of the program. Most students do not object to paying the extra fees if they know there is a good chance that they will be placed in a worthwhile job during their work terms. However, the recession has affected a lot of our past employers very strongly and hindered the viability of our co-op program. continued to page All

0 and P # 35: Sunday by Phillip Chee There are more Canada geese than there are people on this beach. Ah, Hazel? I am near my family home, sitting at the foot of a half-kilometre strip of park land that lines both banks of t h e E t o b i c o k e C r e e k , a welcome respite from the thoughtless utopia that is suburbia, Fittingly, the beach on the shore of Lake Ontario is more of an afterthought, as if someone decided to dump some dirt on the lawn by the water’s edge. An early maming fog hovered above the water, the cool wind pushing it ashore, only to melt away over the grass. The coal-fired generating station, L a k e v i e w , e m e r g e s f r o m behind a vapour curtain. it is an ironic monument to a different age of p r o g r e s s . A p a i n f u l e p o c h t h a t p r o m i s e d m u c h b u t s e e m s more intent on leaving more scars in need of healing. A cannon sits perched on a concrete block on my right, pointing its impotent muzzle at some vague ghost. The memory of a wispy enemy, reaching back to the days of Bonaparte, grasps the imagination. Might a Yankee clipper have threatened to land upon the fair shore of this sleepy village by the lake. My spirit confronts a stark unconsciousness. The beach has not changed much since the times I used to climb trees, scrape knees, and had no thought to the future beyond tomorrow. The geese have taken definitive positions offshore, floating and bobbing like toys in a tub full of apples. Carefully, they bide their timed when the people will eventually leave, though it may not be for a while. How like an ageless beach, I figure, with trees keeping time by their girth, and the cars by their model year. The water sparkles, wave caps glinting like precious stones, immemorial as’the sea. The geese drift away and the seagulls stake their plot of sand. But now the dog-people arrive and the toddlers too. We used to brag that we could see the lights on the US side of the lake in the evening. We were confusing them with the ones shining from our television sets. A part cir .rrle will always belong here, I gather some sand into a plastic bag for a friend. She collects beach sand from various places. But you will not have walked across this one, I replied. That’s okay, you’ll have, she said. I follow the young girl as she walks past, one that I mistook for a dogperson. She has a rabbit on a leash. The back of her T-shirt announces for all to see: AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING. We live in interesting times.

Co-op self-help couldn’t hurt during recession continued from page A9 Most of the employers that are still w i t h t h e p r o g r a m are located in t h e O t t a w a National Capital Region or in the greater Toronto region. I spoke with one co-ordinator, o f f e r i n g a l i s t o f s u g g e s t i o n s o f companies to approach as c o - o p p a r t n e r s f r o m m y h o m e t o w n ( L o n d o n ) a n d m u c h t o m y dismay, the co-ordinator told me that “most students preferred to go to Toronto or the Ottawa region to work.” Personally, I am not terribly impressed by going to either of these regions, but I accept that that is where the majority of jobs are located. And I believe that after our conversation, this coordinator came to realize that students today are m o r e w i l l i n g t o m o v e t o smaller cities than perhaps they were five years ago. To me, it seems to make more sense to have people closer to the university in cities that are not as expensive as either Ottawa o r Toronto unless the student already lives in those cities. I know my first work term in Ottawa was a n e x p e n s i v e f o u r m o n t h s , w i t h relocation expenses, long-distance phone bills, high rent, expensive utility bills, and buying a co-op wardrobe, after which there was not much money left (and what little was left ended up circulating in the economy of Hull, Quebtx)! he rely too heavily on jobs in those two major urban centres (Ottawa and Toronto) and we need to expand our co-op network into other cities in Ontario so that all our eggs are not in two baskets. The economic climate is such now that students cannot afford to be as picky about their co-op jobs as perhaps they were 5 years ago in this program w h e n , s o I a m t o l d , the j o b s o u t w e i g h e d t h e available students. Most s t u d e n t s w o u l d p r o b a b l y like to w o r k in their home cities and I m y s e l f was very distraught in the fall term when I discovered that there were no iobs in the Want Ads

I would like to see the Department of Co-Operative Education devise a system whereby students can help stimulate the process of acquiring new employers in their home cities by dropping off a promotional/marketing type newsletter or package (with contact numbers at fie university) at the human resource offices of companies that we are familiar with, thereby generating our own leads for potential jobs in our home cities. Why do all of our jobs have to be with head offices in Ottawa o r T o r o n t o ? T h e r e a r e many firms and government departments that have regional offices that could perhaps use a co-op student even more so than the head offices and these smaller offices might have the budget to hire an extra student. Surely it wouldn’t hurt to pursue these options. If we do not start marketing co-operative education aggressively, there won’t be much of a p r o g r a m left. Perhaps it is time to invest in a marketing campaign through trade journals and business publications across Ontario, in much the same way that American co-op universities do. Perhaps it is time to promote a media campaign to headline co-op partner companies and the students that are working with them in local newspapers and give our employers some “kudos” for helping us out. The list of companies that I had given to the co-ordinator contained names of many multinational firms and government departments that did have regional offices in my home city, and if a cc~op promo package had been available I would have gladly distributed the materials over the two days of walking and driving that it would have takenme to each and every business on my list, My point is that co-ordinators need to allow students to take a more active role in the co-op program. Like I have said in my previous article, “co-ordinators are few and students are many.” If we work together towards generating new leads we can keep the prog r a m intact and successful, as well as cost-

Every student should be offered the chance to speak to a potential employer and solicit new leads for our co-ordinators. Most of us know at least one person in a company who is in a managemerit position and deals with hiring personnel and perhaps, one whisper in that person’s ear could lead to one or more co-op jobs. If students adopt a proactive approach to co-operative education and if everyone were to put in an extra effort to stimulate new leads the results would be to everyone’s benefit giving us more jobs to choose from rather t h a n e v e r y o n e c h o o s i n g from the same small list of jobs, and restoring the balance of letting the students being in c o n t r o l o f t h e i r p l a c e ments rather than being at the mercy of the employers. A student does not have even have to try a create a new job for his/her own faculty - he or she can try simply to create a new job f o r a n o t h e r W a t e r l o o s t u d e n t ! F o r example, English students doing technical writing at a software firm could try to get UW electrical

engineers or computer science majors into their companies and vice-versa. All it takes is to drop an extra business card from your coordinator into your employer’s hands - just as a reminder that Waterloo co-op is there with an excellent employee pool of bright, eager students with a desire to work in many diverse fields! Co-operative education is an investment in all our futures and that investment needs to be protected just like any other investment. I believe students must play an ‘active role in the co-operative education program at UW; perhaps we need to see energetic students working for the department as student co-ordinators specifically towards generating new leads on jobs with new companies. Right now, UW students are relying too heavily on co-ordinators to find new jobs; while the co-ordinators are invaluable to the p r o g r a m , w e the s t u d e n t s a r e t h e o n e s w h o have the vested interest and investment in the success of the program, not the co-ordinators.

Hit the dirt!

Don’t lose that bike! by Paul Done Imprint staff

either removed them and lock them t o t h e frame with your U-lock, or get a sturdy cable lock (like a Kryptocable) and wind it through your wheels. 3) If you have a quick-releaseseat and seatpost, then take it with you, 4)Don’t lock your bike in the same spot every day: move it around so that a potential thief can’t case it for too long. 5) Make sure that your bike frame has been engraved with your driver’s license number and put one of those “operation identification” stickers on it.

Let’s face it, bike theft is a major problem on our campus. If you absolutely don’t want your bike stolen, the leave it at home. A determined thief will ususally be able to break most locks, however, the more difficult you make the task, the less inclined the thief will ne to take your bike. There are a number of steps that one can take in order to protect against theft. The following is a list compiled from interviews with Sgt. Wayne Shortt of the UW police, with representatives of bike groups, and from personal practice.

-. 76 real race: who will puke first?


by Paul Done Imprint staff

choose to use those knobby tires for their intended purpose, this is a list of a few of my favorite riding spots. l

It’s extremely odd that, while the majority of new bicycles 4d are mountain bikes, very few of them are ridden off-road, and only a tiny number are raced off-road. The pursuit of trails and mud has led me to most corners of the region, and should you


riding is that these are areas which have a high degree of public useage. Respect the surroundings and other trail users Only ride on existing trails, and don’t exceed the speed which will allow you to safely bring the bike

to a halt should you encounter hikers or other bikes. If you don’t already have a helmet, get one, mine has saved my dome more than once. Be sure to take along any tools you might require, as getting stuck in the bush with a broken bike is no fun. Also, make sure you have at least one large water bottle, to ’ avoid dehydration.

“Vahe-Plus” MEAL PLAN The University of Waterloo, Department of E’ood Services, offers an exclusive program to help you budget your fmd dollars and meet your demanding schedule. l


The.VALUE PLUS meal plan utilizes a “credit cars’ to electronically decrease your prepaid balance every time you use your card at Food Sewice Facilities, from September 1, 1992 through August 31,1993. Cards can be purchased in $50.00 denominations. When a student purchases $300.00 or more they save the 7% GST and 8% PST.




When a student purchases $500.00 or more, a f&er 5% cash value will be added to your cards. Total Potential Savings = 20%.


A pilot project to examine the possible installation of bike lockers is currently being undertaken by EngSoc. The prototype bike locker (on display at Carl Pollock Hall) provides lockable and far more theft-proof bicycle storage. An added advantage of this type of system is that it’s far more weather-proof.

1) Use a U-lock and place a plumber’s T around the joint with the locking mechanism. Without a plumber’s T, even the best U-locks can be broken when a length of pipe is placed i around the end and used to lever it open. I 12) If you have quick-release wheels, then

When a student purchases $700.00 or more, a further 10% cash value will be added to your cards. Total Potential Savings = 25%.

Laurel Creek Conservation Area-This area is the closest to campus, with a convenient trail running from the back side of the UW golf course across to the lake/pond. Once you’re in the park, just follow the signs for the cross-country ski trails, then shred. Since this is a high-usearea, extra care and attentiveness for pedestrians, d o g s , etc is necessary. Hidden Valley -ZAxlatecl near Fairview Mall, Hidden Valley is a small, but challenging, ridingareawithacoupleoffast,rockysections and some tricky technical sections. HOW to get there: Turn left at Wilson Rd. and then turn left at Goodrich Dr. There’s an area to park where Goodrich Dr. splits into Hidden Valley Rd.

Erb St. Hydra Cut --This is a recent discovery for me, and it’s a blast to ride with a couple of steep climbs up the side of a ravine, and some very fast downhills in an agreement forest. This area is the muddiest place I’ve been to, so be prepared to look like the swamp thing. HOW lo get there: Go out Erb St. toward St, _. Agatha and turn left on the gravel road - running alongside the landfill. FoIlow the ,road until it turns into a trail, and nead toward the hydrq l i n e s , t h e n explore! The Crown -- While I’m not sure what the official name for this place is, located behind the McDonalds in the eastbound lanes of the 401, there’s miles of gravel road and single track through agreement forest. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of hills, but the trails are sweet. How to get fhere: If you’re going by car, come off the 401 at Townline Rd., and turn north. Take the first right (Ellis Rd.). Turn right at the first stop sign, on the left, just past the bridge over the 401 is a parking lot adjacent to the trails, Chicopee Ski Hill -= You get what you pay for when you ride a ski hill. Sure it hurt during the climb, but the white knuckle ride backdown is a scream. There’s also a few fun service roads on the back side of the hill. How to.get there: Follow Old King Street out to River Rd. and turn left. The ski hill is on your right.

1992-93 should be a b&ner war for varsity teams

Waterloo sports: a tradition of excellence by Peter Brown Imprint sports W h e t h e r y o u ’ r e a r r i v i n g at the University of Waterloo for the first time or returning for another year, you’re in for a great year in Warrior and Athena sports. After only three decades, Uw’s athletic department has established a tradition of excellence in varsity, competitive, and recreational athletics. And you can participate in this excellence, either by playing campus recreation sports yourself or cheering on our varsity teams. Our varsity program has sported a number of successful teams t h r o u g h o u t t h e u n i v e r s i t y ’ s history, The Warrior football team finished in second-place in the Ontario University Athletic Association (0UAA) West last year, and both our men’s volleyball and h o c k e y t e a m s have e n j o y e d g r e a t s u c c e s s in r e c e n t y e a r s . In order to not leave out any of the 16 Warrior and 15 Athena teams, I encourage you to find out a bit more about them by reading the articles on pages A20-21. Also, a schedule for the first meetingsof the year for all the teams is to the right. First-year students are encouraged to use this information and try out for their favourite sport. Who knows - you might be on the next Waterloo championship team! For those of us who won’t make the team&e nextbest thingis supporting your varsity teams by attending as m a n y g a m e s a s p o s s i -

ble. By using your season ticket and attending home games of the Warriors and A t h e n a s , y o u a r e s u p p o r t ing our varsity teams and getting to see some pretty exciting sporting events. S o c o m e o u t a n d g e t c a u g h t up in the Warrior/Athena fever. Your season ticket is required to get into Warrior football, basketball, hockey, and vollqyball; all other regular season varsity games are free! What if you are not varsity sports material, and you want to compete in one or more of your sports? Not to worry. UW has competitive and recreational leagues to suit any level of athlete, from begin= ner to expert. The main idea is having fun’while maintaining a level of competitiveness.

1992 Waterloo Warrior football preview

Could this be a Vanier Cup

by Rich Nichol General Manager Waterloo Wa&or Football It is hard to believe that just over four years ago, the University of Waterloo Warrior football team was still looking for its first win in 33 starts, a record of futility that

stretched over a span of nearly five years. Now as we enter the 1992 season, the Warriors have established themselves as a consistent powerhouse in the tough OUAA conferenceofCIAUfootball. In 1991, they posted their most successful season ever with a record of 5-2,

Women’s varsity preview

Athena cagers and rowers likely to impress by Graham Tomlinson Imprint sports The University of Waterloo’s varsity program boasts 15 women’s teams, all using the nickname Athenas. Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, prudent warfare, and womanly art, extolling thecharacteristics of learning, good judgment, and the mastery of athletic skills. These are qualities that all of our female athletes hope to display - as they compete this season. Wearing the traditional black and gold, the Athenas play in the Ontario Women’s Interuniversity Athletic Association, a member of the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union, the governing body for university sports in the nation. Here is a brief outlook on each of this year’s Athena squads: ATHENA BADMINTON Head Coach: Jeff White Season: Ott to Fob An Athena badminton squad, composed mostly of rookies, finished a disappointing ninthplace in their division last season. Jeff White returns as coach and hopes for more success for a team led by Marcy Macvicar and last year’s MVP Hau Lee. ATHENA BASKETBALl Head Coach: Denise Dignard -Season: Ott to Mar The team finished witha 6-8 record last year, good enough for a fifth-place finish in the OWIAA West division. Highlights of the

1991-92 campaign included a four game winning streak and an Xmprint coach of the year award for coach Denise Dignard. Brenda Kraemer, last year’s MVP and an OWIAA all-star, and Kathy Woordham are both back on the roster. Shannon VanKoughnettand former club players Kim Stusyk, Kristina Williams and Erica Smith add young talent to the lineup and promise to make 1992-93 an exciting season for Athena basketball. ATHENA CROSS-COUNTRY Head Coach: Brent McFarlane Season: Sep to Nov Lisa Laffrati is gone, but last year’s MVP and OWIAA all-star Marci Aitken returns tp lead the Athena cross-country team. Coach Brent McFarlane also loses Kelly McHaleandLindaHacheytograduation, but stiIl hopes to improve on last year’s fourth-place finish. ATHENA CURLlNG Head Coach: Bill Tschkhart Season: Nov to Feb Bill Tschirhart returns to coach a veteran team with four returning curlers. Skip Margaret Corey should provide the leadership to improve on last season’s sixth-place finish. ATHENA FJELD HOCKEY Head Coach: Judy McCrae Season: Sep to Nov This team finished eighth in the OWIAA with a 4-5-4 record last season, and will have its work cut out for it in ‘92. Gone are MVP, OWIAA first-team all-star, and UW female athlete of the year Annette

Koehler, along with Caitlin McGregor,Kyli&coggan,and Janet McPherson. What remains is a versatile group of rookies and veterans, led by Leanne Dietrich, Montse Sanzsole, Linda Mowat, and Carol Ferguson. ATHENA flGURE SKATING Head Coach: Carolyn M&eke Season: Nov to Feb A good veteranteamretums to help coaches Carolyn McNeice and Alison Hughes surpass last year’s fifth-place finish. Waterloo hosts the OWIAA finals in February, 1993. ATHENA NORDIC SKIING Head Coach: Lisa Patterson MVS Julia Norman, Eva Sanz-Sole and Robyn Wheeldon return to help coach Lisa Patterson improve on last year’s seventh-place f?nish at the OWIAA finals. ATHENA INDOOR HOCKEY Head Coach: Judy McCrae Season: Jan to Mar The team that finished fifth in the OWIAA will have it’s work cut out for it. Gone are MVP and UW female. athlete of the year Annette Koehler,along withcaitlin McGregor and Kylie Scoggan. However, coach Judy McCrae will certainly assemble a competitive group from the field hockey carry-overs. ATHENA ROWING Head Coach: Don McLean Season: Sep to Ott This fall will be the third season for Athena Rowing. An expanded regatta schedule will see

the team travel to races in the UnintedStates.TheProgramrnehas shown steady improvementfrom 1990, when it was in ninth place with only 2 points, to a seventh place finish last year with total accumulated points of 32. As well, the team had several crews win at invitational regattas. This summer’s recruitment of experienced athletes combined with a high return rate for last year’s rowers should move Athena Rowing to a fifth place or betterstandingattheOWIAAchampionship. ATHENA SOCCER Head Coach: Bruce Rodrlques Season: Sep to Nov Returnees Kelly Campbell, Anita Toogood and Kerry Jameson should lead the Athenas to improve on last season’s eighth-place finish. Captain Sheri MacDonald will be missed, but coach Bruce Rodriques has hopes for some rookies, including goaltender Nicole Whyte. ATHENASQUASH Head Coach: Chico Sllvestri I Season: Nov to Feb The team could muster only a fifth-place finish in ‘91. Several second year players join Christine Anderson and DianeGrady to form a more experienced and promising team in ‘92. ATHENA SWIMMING Head Coach: Brian Cartlldge Season: Nov to Mar New coach Brian Cartlidge brings expertise to an Athena swim team coming off a strong fourth-

place finish. The outlook is bright with Melissa Williams, Christie Selig and Trish Felszegi all returning after travelling to the CIAU championships last season. ATHENA TENNIS ,Head Coach: Sandy Macovik Season: Sep to Ott A good number of players are expected back for their second year of play for UW, including team MVP and OUAA champion, Carloine Culik. She dominated all competition and ended the year undefeated. ATHENA TRACK & FIELD Head Coach: Brent McFarlane Season: Dee to Mar After finishing sixth in the league and twelfth in the Canadian championships last season, Brent McFarlane must feel good about a team that is still improving. ATHENA VOLLEY0ALL Head Coach: Dena Deglau Season: Ott to Mar MVP and OWIAA all-star Suzanne Bylsma and rookie of the year Linda Ezerailis led the volleyball Athenas to a fifth-place OWlAA finish, only one win short of a playoff berth. Katrina Englebrecht severed her achilles tendon last January and will be missed at least for the start of this season. Still, improvement is anticipated from a maturing team that has players returning for their fourth year for the first time in as niany fears.

The Warrior volleyball team is also known as “The Black Plague,” symbolizing their habit of infecting the opposition’s hopes with their stonewall defence and deceptive offence. Here is a brief outlook on each team: WARRIOR BADMlNTON Head coach: Jeff White Season: Ott to Feb The team finished in sixthplace each of the last two seasons but with a veteran roster, including Ken Akai and MVP Clifford Tao, coach Jeff White expects a better season in ‘42. WARRIOR BASKETBALL Head coach: Tom Kieswetter Season: Ott to Mar The Warrior cagers failed to meet expectations in 1991-92, finishing fifth in the powerful OUAA West. Despite a solid core of talent, the Warriors never found the necessary consistency. With a new coach and an infusion of new talent, watch for the 3992-93 version of the Warrior hoopsters to be running, gunning, high-octane fools. WARRIOR CROSSXXIJNTRY H&d coach: Brent McFarlane Season: Sep to Nov Jason Gregoire returns to. lead the team, running times in the 31-minute range over ten kilometres.

WARRIOR FOOTBALL Head coach: Dave “Tuffy” Knight Season: Sep to Nov The Warrior football team enjoyed its best season in sch001 history last year, finishing in second-place in the OUAA with a 5-2 record. All-star tailback Tom Chartier returns for a fifth-year to lead the team offensively. Chartier became the first rpning back in OUAA history to run for over ‘1,000 yards in two consecutive seasons. One of the best defenms in the nation was lead by linebacker Jeff Lake and an outstanding secondary.

Using his fine technique and exemplary mental toughness, DePalma had no problem filling those big shoes. Harris puts his tremendous size and reach to great use, sporting great mobility and range.

Rookie hopefuls include Ron Schippling, R y a n K i r k , Rick Shea, Andy Cianikakis, Philipe Talbot, and Scott Reeve. DEFENSIVE BACKS: One of the nation’s superior s e c o n d a r y u n i t s i s spearheaded by safety S t e v e F u t y e r a n d c o r n e r b a c k Gory Delaney, who led the nation w i t h s i x i n t e r c e p t i o n s last season. Futyer was rightfully honoured with an CKJAA first-team all-star selection in 1991 for his uncanny quickness and instinct. After being voted UW F o o t b a l l ’ R o o k i e o f t h e Year in 1990, Delaney followed up with an even more outstanding sophomore season. He led the nation in interceptions with six, but s h o c k i n g l y , theOUAA coachesonly voted him to the second all-star team. This CIAU calibre player off e r s top&notch pass-coverage. Second-year player Kirk Witter has been the most outstanding DB to start at the other c o r n e r b a c k p o s i t i o n . Safety PiLefebvre is one of the hardest and most explosive hitters in the OUAA among defensive backs. The young, energetic Taly Williams sports tremendous athleticism and high-octane speed. With Taly Williams p~~edbyinjuriesinrecentweeks, Torberne Williams will be Waterloo’s premier rover at the start of the 1992 campaign.

Veterans Kevin McNichoI, Colin Roy, Justin Robertson, ‘Jeff Almeida, Craig Adair, Tony Garl.and, Dave Schmidt, and Chris Cudmure make up a strong support cast, along with freshmen lames Channer, Todd Groves, Ryan Haines, Mike Johnston, Derek K a l v e r d a , C h r i s t i a n Lorenz, Mark Salmoni, J e f f S h i a u , J e f f S p r a g g o n , and John Zianis. SPECIAL TEAMS: Waterloo’s special teams unit is also ranked among the best in the CIAU. Punter Mike Raynard finished second in Canada in punting average and was voted to the OUAA second all-star team. Raynard, a former NCAA Division 2 All-American punter at Edinborough PA, finished second in the CIAU in punting average last season. Punt and kick-return thoro u g h b r e d M i k e S o n a m a s s e d 443 all-purpose yards (good for second on the team), averaging over 10 yards per carry.

WARRIOR TENNIS Head coach: Martin Johnson Season: Sep to Ott Richard Straka secured his s e c o n d individual OUAA title in as many years. Coach Johnson’s team was ranked sixth in the league at the end of the year and will be hard pressed to find another player of Straka’s calibre.

WARRIOR SOCCER Head coach: Ron Cooper Season: Sep to Nov T h e l o s s o f veterans makes this a rebuilding year for Warrior soccer. The team is looking for someone to step forward and replace last year’s goaltender Dan Sicoli. Mark Blake and ShawnTaggart return off good years and hope to better last year’s third-place finish.

WARRIOR TRACK & FIELD Head coach: Brent McFarlane Season: Dee to Mar While team MVP Pat Kirkham will be missed, rookie sensation Jeff Miller comes back for his second year after vaulting to the Canadian championships last season. In the quest to better last year’s 12th-place finish at the Canadian championships, the coaches have adopted a n e w t r a i n i n g p r o gram.

WARRIOR SQUASH Head coach: Chico Silvestri Season: Nov to Feb Despite finishing fifth in the league, when it came to crunch time the squash Warriors showed they had the mettle to compete with the best, finishing second to the dominant Mustangs in the OUAA championships. WARRIOR SWiMMING Head coach: Brian CartIldge Season: Nov to Mar Brian Cartlidge returns as Warrior swim coach, a position he held in the mid seventies. “Athletes under Brian’s coaching have consistently placed in the medals and have frequently recorded personal bests in these competitions.“, says a W V Athletics release. Although last year the team earned fourth place in the OUAA championships and just missed a top-ten ranking, placing eleventh overall in the CIAW championships, there is no reason to expect any drop-off this year as Rich Blakelock, Ian Hunt and Mark Yip will be welcomed back.

WARRIOR VOLLEYBALL Head coach: Scott Shantz Season: Ott to Mar TheBlackPlaguelostamarathan match to Western in the semifinals but finished third in the CIAU last year. The team looses Ian Heynen, Brian Shin, William Zabjek and Dave Balodis from last year’s squad and left-handed centre and OUAA all-star Shawn Smith is a medical question mark at present. Still, a formidable core of quick athletic talent remains for Scott Schantz including Jeff S tover, red-shirt freshman Eric Butcher, and former highjumper Karl Zabjek.

Landlord / Tenant Information Of&e can be resource

Learn your rights as a tenant

What a r e y o u r rights? With the new schopl year here many students will find themselves renting. Here is just a small list of things you should watch for. Leases Here are some particulars to keep i n m i n d w h e n signing a lease: - Read it over and make sure you understand all the clauses - Have any landlord promises put in the lease, and have them initial any amendments. Key money and deposits Many times, “key money” is d i s g u i s e d a s a charge for furniture, draperies, and other accessories w h i c h are already in the unit. Ontario’s rent review legislation makes it illegal for landlords, tenants, or any person on their behalf to collect or attempt to collect key money. The only deposit a landlord can leg a l l y demand is a sum equal t o o r less than the amount of last month’s rent. The landlord must pay the tenant six percent per annum on this deposit. Legal Rent Before you move in, ask around to see how much other people are paying in your building or previous tenants have paid. Call Rent Review at 579-5790 to see if the unit is registered and what the legal rent is. Postdated Cheques Tenants d o n o t h a v e t o g i v e the l a n d l o r d p o s t d a t e d c h e q u e s .

day of t h e t e n a n c y i n t h e c a s e o f a weekly agreement. Caution: this section gets a great d e a l of misinterpretation. For example, if J sign a lease for the time span being September 1, 1992 to August 31, 1993 and J wish not to continue after August 31,1993, I must give written notice 60 days prior to August 31,1993. It doesn’t mean that I can give 60 days notice anytime during the stated time frame and expect to be free from the lease. Remember, your lease is a legally binding contract. Find out your rights and responsibilities before signing.

person may do this out of their own will for the sake of convenience. Attention: if you have no lease, postdated cheques could be understood as an agreement to a fixed term. This might be in opposition to your wish to have a monthly tenancy. Privacy

Tenants have the right to privacy in their unit. The landlord cannot enter without tenant’s permission, only by giving written notice 24 hours in advance. This is made null in emergencies or after notice or termination of the tenancy has been given. In this case, the landlord has the right to show the unit to possible renters within reasonable hours.

Your lease is a legally binding contract. Find out I

your rights and respoizsi-

bilitiei before sighzg. ~~~~ Termination by the tenant A lease or other tenancy agreement cannot be broken by either the landlord or tenant without cause. The only exception to this is that the tenant may terminate a tenancy agreement after giving appropriate notice 60 days before the end of a fixed term agreement (usually a lease), a periodic (month to month) or 28 days before the last


Repairs and maintenance The landlord i s r e s p o n s i b l e f o r “ p r o v i d i n g a n d maintaining the premises in a good state of repair.” The landlord must adhere to all municipal health, safety and property standards. Tenants are responsible for repairing any damage caused by “willful or negligent conduct” by them or their guests and for the ordinary cleanliness of the premises unless the tenancy agreement titates that the landlord cleans the premises.

ForfirstyearstudentsatW, the fall term marks the beginning of a new phase in their lives, one that’s exciting and scarey at the same time. It means a new lifestyle whether they still live at home and commute to campus. It means greater demands academically: crammed schedules; tight deadlines; more work thancan be done in the time available, a barrage of new concepts and information to ponder, discuss and assimilate. . Social relationships undergo transformations. Leaving the familiar groups of associates in high school means getting a new perspective on who you are, trying out new social behaviors, spreading your wings. Now, imagine an incoming student who is also coming to a different country with a different social structure, language and educational system. These are the additional challenges facing our international students when they arrive at UW this fall. In many cases, new international students know no one else on the campus when they arrive. In some cases they’re on very tight budgets because of the elevated cost of tuition (five to six times what Canadians pay). Air fare home is expensive and they don’t expect to get back to visit family and friends more than once or twice during their stay here. For some, they’ll be studying in English for the first time. UW is fortunate in having about 900 international students (Winter ‘9’1 f i g u r e s f o r b o t h grads
