by Shannon VanKoughnett Imprint sports The basketball Athenas used a dominating second-half to beat the McMaster Marauders 57-44 on Wednesday night (January 20). 1be win gives the Athenas a 3-4 record, good enough for a share of third place in the OWIAA East. Their fourth loss of the season came last Saturday in Windsor. Wednesday night's tilt was tied at 29-29 at the half, but the Athenas used theirtenadous defence and patience with the dock to bury the Marauders 28-15 in the second frame. Senior off-guard Brenda Kraemer paced the team on Wednesday with 14 points, while rookie sensation Kim Stusyk pumped in 12 herself. Second-year forward Susan Kruis and fourth-year guard Kathy Wordham scored 10 and 9 points respectively. McMaster's top scorers were Lisa Thomaidis (17) and Jodie Wallace (15). Following their thrilling 49-48 comepehind, victory over Brock last. esdliY路 (January 13), the Athenas were extremely 'pumped' Saturday morning as they headed towards Windsor. 1bis increase in energy was evident in warm-up as the Athenas prepared for their meeting with the Lancerettes at a ferocious tempo. . . Throughout the season, emphasis has been placed on strong defence. The Athenas have also attempted to make their defence more "in the opponents' shorts" aggressive. On Saturday, the Athena defence, which is usually very solid, did not seem to be quite up to par. As a result, the Lancerettes were allowed to score a few easy, uncontested shots, and that made the difference in the game, a 50-36 win for Windsor. Throughout the season, the Athenas have not had strong offensive starts. This was once again evident in the half-time score of 28-17 for Windsor. In the second half, the Athenas came out hard but could not pml ahead of their scrappy opponents. Wordhamhit4-0f-7 from three-point land, ending the game with 16 points. Coming off the bench, Stusyk ripped down 7 boards, 5 of those being at the offensive end. Inthefinalminutes, Waterloo's game was not helped as three starters had to be removed from the game. Acadia transfer Maureen MacDonald got into early foul trouble and eventually fouled out with 4 points and 4 rebounds. Kruis had to leave the game after being smashed in the face while fighting for a rebound. She left the game with 7 points, 4 rebounds and a very bloody nose. Kraemer had to be taken out of the game seconds later due to a rather large, bloody gash on the side of her head. She left the game with 4 points as well as 4 assists. .

Windsor high-scorer Dana McCullough shot 100 per cent from the floor and ended the game with 13 points. Despite the injuries, the Athenas were able to pick up the intensity a notch

in the dosing minutes, but it was not enough to pull off a victory. The firial score: 50-36. The Athenas will be in action once again next Wednesday, January 27, at

Wilfrid Laurier University. Game time is 6 p.m. Their next home game is on Saturday, January 30 against the Purple Satan Western Mustangs at 12 p.m.

Bursary set up to remember UW murder victim The university of Waterloo has esto1.blished a bursary fund in memory of David Zaharchuk, slain early last New Year's Day on campus. The first award is expected to be made by next fall to a graduate student in financial need with a good academic standing. Donations can be sent to the bursary fund via UW's office of development. Tax receipts will be issued for contributions exceeding $5. "We have consulted with David Zaharchuk's parents and hi" wife and it was agreed that the bursary should be set up for graduate students from any faculty at the University of Waterloo," reports David Burns, dean of engineering. Before his death, Zaharchuk, a graduate student in chemical engineering, was completing his PhD thesis in metallurgy, which focused on a new process for the rapid drying of iron ore pellets. Waterloo Regional and UW police continue their investigation but so far have made no arrests in, the case.

UW researcher studies ecological trends in Ontario's north The fur trade in Northern Ontario has had an enormous impact on the ecology in the region, says University of waterloo Prof. Roger Suffling. In a major paper, the geographer says the arrival of the fur traders ensued in benefits and drawbacks for the native Ojibwa people in northwest Ontario. His paper was presented earlier this month at a symposium of the institute of British Geographers in England. The downside included over-hunting, epidemics, htffilan-set forest fires and alcohol-related deaths. Nevertheless, the population continued to grow. His research team examined abou t 300,00 journal entries by the local trading post of the Huds~m Bay's Company. The records chronicle varied aspects of human life, as well as the weather and ecology.

Pugwash explores ethical and societal issues weekly from PugwGsh Pugwash, a student club dedicated tothediscussionandexploration of ethical and social issues relating to science and technology, has meetings every Thursday. Many new faces were seen and a vibrant discussion held lastThursday. Even more new faces are hoped for at the next meeting when the keynote address given at last summers National Conference will be discussed. Last term we had three particularily exciting events. Dr. Pullman,aphilosophygraduateand instructor for the Center for Society, Technology, and .values, lead a round-table discussion on the impact and implications of science and technology on society. The diSCUssion was very lively and enlightening; Dr Pullman presented us with challenging questions and revealing insights. An unofficial meeting continued until lat~ in the evening over supper at Olympic Gyros. A group of excited Pugwash • members journeyed south of the border late in November:destination Middlebury Vermont. The weekend-long U.S. Pugwash Conference,entitled "ChallengesofGlobalInterdependence",wasattended . by enthusiastic delegates from Penn State, Boston U, Harvard, McGill, MIT, and Virgina Polytech among others. Four workshops were held, presided overbyexpertsin the fields of Rebuilding Eastern Europe, the European Community, Third World Population Issues, and U.S.Japanese Relations. Thought-provoking discussion continued through the nocturnal explorations of the entertainment offered by the quaint New England town. Over 80 delegates and Middlebury College students played Buckminster Fuller's World Game on the world's largest map of the earth laid out on the gym floor. Although we avoided a nuclear

holocaust, the reality of the world's interwoven problems was brought home with sobering reality. Professor Hotson of Waterloo and Professor Watkins of Toronto were guest speakers at an event jointly sponsored by Pugwash, Youth Building the Future, Students ChristainMovement, and theAssoelation for Baha'i Studies.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) represents an "ideological struggle" between the growth of the corporate sector in Canada and internationally versus the right of democratically elected nation-states to shape the future of its citizens, Maude Barlow told a packed crowd at the Kitchener Public Library on January 14. Barlow, the chairperson of the Council of Canadians, was in town to aid in the creation of a regionbased coalition to combat the corporate agenda under the umbrella of the National Action Canada Network. Barlow spoke out against the increasing power given to transnational corporations (TNCs), stating that of the roughly 600 TNCs in the world today, they represent 80 per cent of the industrialized world's trade and close to 80 per

Jim Turk of the Ontario Federation of Labour said that the variety of people attending the talk and co-sponsoring the event represents how mixed and varied, the groups are that oppose the NAFTA agreement. The groups co-sponsoring the event included the Waterloo Regional Labour Council, Institute for Christian Ethics, WPIRG, the Latin American Support Group and the Working Centre.

and we've already had tons of applications!" said Marilyn Booth, one of the main coordinators of the McMaster-Laurentian-Ryersonconsortium proposal and head of continuing education at Ryerson. The first baccalaureate program on midwifery was announced December 21. the Ministry of Colleges and Universities chose the Ryerson consortium because of the unique combination thateachschool offers. McMaster, who will head the group, has an established medical program. Laurentian offers French language programming, correspondence courses and access for Native Canadians. Ryerson's community services program already works with professionals in the community and would specialize in working closely with practicing midwives. Toronto has the largest number

of practicing midwives. "The commitment that Ryerson has made to emphasize midwives as teachers in the program is a really important factor", said Jan Kilthei, a Toronto midwife who has been involved with the accreditation of midwives for over a decade. "In the past, pregnant women have always been treated as being ill, which wasn't usually the case. Midwives free doctors up to do what doctors do best, which is to treat the sick. They allow healthy moms to have healthy births," said Booth. Faculty and classes have not yet been chosen. However, the curriculum will include courses from the health and social sciences and women's studies, along with clinical courses and field work with an actual midwife. The program win also give students experience with a family physician, obstetricians and community settings.

Then it would be necessary for these citizens to elect democratic governments that will serve the needs of the people and not of the TNCs. This would involve public accountability systems, including local environmental councils that would work along side the government.

Atthe same time, these TNCs erase borders, or move production from places where there is higher regulations to places where they are lower, taking advantage of the desperate work force of developing countries. lilt is a funny combination of late 20th century technology and old economic systems from another time," Barlow said. In an interview after the event, Barlow outlined the steps necessary to create a country both independent of foreign control and an interdependent player in the world. The first part is thatcitizens begin to act as stewards for their larger community,asiftheyhadaparttoplay.

100,000 faces of warto visit CC from Conrad Grebel College January 1993 marks the second anniversary of the Gulf War - a continuing war which has claimed over 100,000 lives. Thel00,oooFaces exhibitis anattemptto remind us of those who died in the war of 1991-Iraqis, Kuwaitis, Americans and others, and those who continue to suffer and die because of the continuing stand-off between Iraq and the UN/US. From January 27-29, Jennifer Lindberg and Patricia King will be bringing the 100,00 Faces exhibit to the UniverSity of Waterloo as part of an Ontario tour that includes ~tops in nine communities. The 439 panel exhibit dispalys the faces of 100,000 people cut from magazines and newspapers. It will be on display in the Campus Centre January 27-29, 9 a.m. t08p.m. Seminars coinciding with the exhibit will be held each day from 11:30-12:30 in the Campus Centre. 100,000 Faces was initiated by one person, Jennifer Lindberg. She was shocked athow easily she £ound herself accepting the media reports that approximately 100,000 people had died in the Gulf War. Lindberg decided that she needed to try to visualize how many people this would be, so that the tragedy of the war would not be lost on her. Lindberg began by cutting faces out of magazines. By the time she reached 2000 faces, word of her project had spread, and soon hundreds of people were involved, many from Ontario and across Canada.. A number of the posters came from individuals in the KitchenerWaterloo area. The pictures were assembled onto panels, and now Lindberg and her colleque, Patricia King, are touring with the exhibit all over Canada and the United States. It currently consists of 439 panels and covers 2800 square feet when fully displayed. The exhibit has had a powerful

Bri.dging the Gap lectures continue:

History of UW engineering revealed by Fronk Seglenieks

Imprint stoff Last term, some engineering students decided that not enough of their studies were dedicated to the study of the engineer ill society as a whole and wanted to change this. This desire culminated in a series of lectures given by guest lectures from different fields in and outside of engineering. This term, this series entitled "Bridging the Gap - Understanding the Human Dimension" continues. The first lecture in the present series occurred this Tuesday with a talk about the early history of engineering at Waterloo, which of course was also the beginning of the university itself. . The lecture was given by Dr. Ken McLaughlin, the present Dean of St. Jerome's College and UW's official historian and was entitled "A Controlled Explosion" the development of engineering at Waterloo 1957-1963. Most of the lecture consisted of a slide presentation as he said engineers always wanted to look at pictures over listening to someone talk. The University first started in 1955 with the idea of expansion of Waterloo Lutheran College (present-day WLU) to accommodate the growing public desire for technology to advance society. At this time there was a limited science program at the college with only two professors and equipment comparable to a high school lab. However,inordertobefunded by the government, the instituqon had to benon-denominational. So it was decided start a separate facility which would teach science and engineering and be affiliated with the college. The University started quite humbly in August 1957 on a parking lot in two temporary buildings

which cost a total of $42,000. The first class consisted of 75 students who were to take a few years of preengineering courses and then go on to do the rest of their education at Western. However, by October 1957, the university was already looking to expand with the prospect of hundreds of students being enrolled in the next few years. Instead of building within the city of Waterloo, it was decided to purchase 20 acres on the outskirts of town where it would be easier to expand. The first university building on the campus was originally designed for the Laurier campus and thus its position here had to be in a location topographically similar to where it was to go there. As well, the brick look of the building was designed to compliment the look of Laurier at the time. This building was Engineering 1 which was opened in December 1958. In 1960, Waterloo was still affiliated with the college, with only engineering and science taught here and all arts coursed taught at the college. However, Waterloo College was already affiliated with Western who also had a fledgling engineering progtam. Mclaughlin speculated that among other reasons, the powers at Western did not like ,the success which the Waterloo engineering program was enjoying and encouraged the college to split with the university. This split occurred, and the University of Waterloo was soon graduating not only undergraduate engineers, but was one of the first universities to also have graduate programs. Thus, the professors had to have a strong research base, as well as being able to teach the undergraduate students. More buildings were built on campus, and this construction served as a parallel the spirit of the

impact on people who have seen it . . . so far. Some comments: "I just did'nt know [how many had been killed.] When I got to the first room, I was astounded by the seeming endlessness of the exhibit." "I was so disgusted by the sanitized media coverage of this war! When we talk about war, we need to show people what happened>" tootoo much, man. It scared "This ,me. It'sisjust much>" 100,000 Faces is a reminder both of the devastation that war brings and of the suffering that continues long after the actual fighting is finished. Jennifer Lindberg and Patricia King will be availabaIe for interviews during their time at the University. Please contact Chris Kerkson Hiebert at 745-8458 for more information on the exhibit.

university as being able look for new innovative ways of operating, unbound by buildings or traditions from the last century. One such innovation was the co-operative education system which was the first of its kind in Canada and has grown to bea world-renowned system. The engineering curriculum was also innovative as the university looked at the curriculums of MIT, Queen's, and Toronto then decided to chose the best aspects of each program and use that as the basis for the engineering at Waterloo. The students also had a certain innovative spirit as some engineers devised a way to paint BEER on the now dismantled Waterloo water tower. Mclaughlin speculated that although Waterloo was gaining respect with its co-op system an? engineering program, the first real

national recognition for the University came when the photo of the water tower was shown across the country. Mclaughlin stressed that this innovative spirit is what allowed the university to grow at a rate of speed which had everybody, in:cluded those who were directly involved in the process, utterly amazed. For what started as an idea in 1955, quickly expanded into a uni- . versity graduating all levels of engineering students from their own university on a separate campus only eight years later. The next talk in the series will be Tuesday, January 26 in Arts lecture 113, when Prof. Eric Haldenby from the school of architecture will be discussing "Architecture, Archaeology, Measure and Machine: Four chapters in a history of design."

Canada has gone from being a moral leader in the United Nations to being a seconder, a backslapping supplier of token military assistance. And you can also dispel any doubts that international politics and its temple. the UN, are a boys' club. The proof of this came this week when Immigration Minister Bernard Valcourt announced that Canada will not accept people who claim refugee status because of discrimination based on their sex. This is because sex is not mentioned in the United Nations definition of refugee, which says that a refugee is someone who has a "well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or politica! opinion" (The Globe and Mail, January 16, 1993). Valcourt said that Canada should not take a leadership role on this issue because in cases where sex is the primary reason for the refugee claim, such as a woman being sexually discriminated against or abused in her home country, Canada can still accept such claimants on so-called humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Valcourt also said that such women may succeed by arguing that they belong to a "particular social group," The Globe reported. But why should a woman who is subjected to discrimination -- precisely becc!use she is a woman - in her home country have to apply under a different and less solid procedure than someone persecuted for political views? One can choose whether or not to be a political activist, wherever one lives. One's gender seems, to the naive student newspaper editor, to be a characteristic less controlled by choice and more deserving of human rights protection. What is especially laughable about Valcourt's comments is his high-minded admonition that Canada should not be telling other countries how to treat their women. "But will Canada act as an imperialist country and impose its values on other countries around the world?" Valcourt said. "... I don't think that Canada should unilaterally try to impose its values on other countries regarding laws of general application." Huh? But isn't that what Canada and other Western nations do when they allow people who have been persecuted for reasons of race, political belief, and so on to circumvent regular immigration channels by applying for refugee status? Isn't that the whole point of imposing sanctions on countries that we, as self-righteous Western citizens, feel have suppressed human rights? Of course it is. Every transaction First World countries undertake with Third World countries involves not just exchanges of goods and capital. but values as well. Every time we invest money in or take natural resources from Third World countries, we tell them what we value and what we do not. The question is; should human rights •• including rights for the one· half of humanity that women make up •• be accorded the same importance as the capitalist values that we impose on these countries every dayl If we do not consider human rights as values that we do, and should, impose on other countries as much as we can. then we might as well dissolve the UN and start charging admission to Canada.

Forum

Mr. Clinton goes to Washington By the time you read this, Bill Clinton will be the President of the United States of America. If you're saying to yourself, 'What does this have to do with me, a University student in a sleepy Canadian town? I don't care who sits in the Oval Office, and American politics do not impact my life one whit," stop reading. Right now. Tum to the Arts section and read record reviews of bands you've never heard of. American politics, particularly U.S. foreign policy, affect you, and everyone, a great deal. How the United States responds to any foreign situation will inevitably affect how Canada responds to the same situation. Indeed, Lester B. Pearson, Canada's first Ambassadorto the United Nations once said, "As goes America, so goes the World." That epigram is more relevant today than when Pearson first uttered it. Whither America in the coming years? I'm glad you asked me that. Bill Clinton is the proud owner of a nice parcel of parting gifts, generously supplied by George Bush. Clinton has inherited Somalia, Iraq, and the Balkans: the raw sewage of messy foreign policy situations. He's also got an enormous trade deficit, slack investment in industry, and a psychotic system of medical insurance on his plate. He is faced with a decaying public education system, a decaying transportation infrastructure, and decaying international faith in his country as an economic and humanitarian leader. Clinton has a long, tough job ahead of him, and it is my firm opinion that neither he nor his administration is up to the task. The first strike against him is his party and its structure. The last three Democratic administrations have been burned to the ground over foreign policy mismanagement: Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs, Johnson and Vietnam, and Carter and the Iran hostage tragedy. Now Clinton has the Somalia bugaboo to solve, not to mention iraq and the Balkans. Post World War II Democratic administrations. because ofthe party's founding principles of liberal interpretation of internal and external political stimuli, have been notoriously poor judges of where and when America ought to intervene in the international arena. Clinton has already shown his poor grasp of the issues by promising refuge for Haitians fleeing that country's totalitarian regime. then

quickly reversing his stance. Whether or not he solves the Somalia problem (essentially a product of the Carter administration). the Iraq problem (a joint Reagan-Bush engineered disaster) and the Balkans problem (I value my life far too much to assign blame here). Clinton will doubtless face many more tough foreign policy decisions in the years ahead. In a world eager to re-align itself after the Cold War, Clinton's promise that America will not become a World Policeman will be a tough one to keep. Third world nations eager for help from thfi U.N. will be faced with a U.S.dominated Security Council, and any hope for impartiality in U.N. humanitarian mandates is optimistic in the extreme. Pearson's epigram of "As goes America. . ." is a sentiment that echoes rather freely around the halls of 1 U.N. Plaza these days. The Security Council, no longer bothered by a pesky Soviet Union to veto its every move, has been very busy indeed these past two years. U.N. forces are newly installed in Cambodia, Laos, Iraq, the Balkans, and are soon to make an extended appearance in Somalia. We must never forget, though, that the U.N., whatever we would like it to be, is currently little more than a bag-man for U.S. foreign policy gurus. The U.N. charter states that its members must provide armed forces and military materiel when needed. This requirement, long ignored by member nations, has been in the spotlight of late. With the demise of the Soviet Union, the United States became the only member nation of the U.N. with the capability and willingness to supply a sufficiently mobile and strategically viable force to the U.N. The predictable result of this U.S. domination of the Security Council was the Gulf War, where the American govemment bullied then U.N. Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar into adopting Resolution 601. R601 allowed member states of the U.N. to go to war on behalf of the U.N. (besides the Korean Police Action, the only time such a resolution has been adopted). Only Slightly less outrageous is the So~ maiia situation. Operation Restore Hope is a U.S.-led operation. It was, of course, sanctioned by the Security Council and the U.N. at large. Secretary-General Boutros BoutrosGhali seems more than willing to pretend that Restore Hope is more than just a slick. U.S.engineered publicity stunt. In light of ever

more complicated geopolitical situations, a world-wide movement away from large standing armies, and the ever-increasing cost of war, America's status as the wealthiest, bestarmed member of the U.N. can only serve to increase its domination of Security Council mandates in the coming years. Now that we've settled the score on how U.S. foreign policy will impact the WOrld, let's move a little closer to home. As Canada's largesttrading partner, America's economy is inexorably tied to Canada's own. Seventy per cent of everything we import comes from the U.S. Close to 60 percent of everything we export goes to the U.S. For all the talk of sovereignty. many people still refuse to acknowledge that Canadians' livelihoods are based almost solely on the economy of another nation. This close link makes Canadian economists shudder when they examine Clinton's reckless abandon in campaign promises to increase taxes, decrease investment in industry. and to undertake an astronomically expensive overhaul to the U.S. health care system. Canadian economists aren't the only ones. Officials of both the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have expressed alarm at Clinton's economic plan. The LM.F. (an autonomous U.N. agency responsible for promoting trade and employment through stabilization of currencies) has warned that Clinton's economic plan is inherently inflationary and poses a potential danger to world trade. Further, economic pundits on both sides of the border worry about Clinton's plan to more heavily tax U.S. companies who import more than a certain percentage of primary resources. The debates also brought a promise from Clinton to punish (with heavier taxes) any company the majority whose stock is not U.S.-held. Are these the actions of a man who supports free (or at least freer) trade between Canada, the U.S., and Mexico? Regardless of how Clinton handles the foreign policy disaster he's inherited, if his promised economic policies do one tenth the damage experts predict, America is headed directly into the dark forest of economic depression. As goes America, so goes the world.

I ross the Road To the editor, In last week' s imprint, the front page was of a security telephone, the 'Help Linc'. It's a idea but it's a sad sign of where our society is to. Now being and having studied martial arts, I do not have the

'lour attention an article written in the ~nd Mail on 16, 1993 by McInnes. It is WHhin' and beast is man. As to any problem, there are different views. McInnes writes about the fears that woman feel when there is a man walking behind them: "How realistic are those fears . ... vVhy should a man who has no criminal or licentious intent have to worry about how he is being perceived by strangers." On the other hand, "Ms. Rouleau (of the Metro Toronto Action Committee on Public Violence against Woman and Children) argues that the fear of vulnerable people must beaddrcssed. "Women'sfearislegitimate. It doesn't matter what you think. It doesn't matter if you are not afraid in that place. If a woman thinks she is afraid, she is afraid." That means men "need to be aware of how their behaviour can be perceived. The very fact that you area man is going to be problematic for a woman ... " But what does this mean for the average male on the street late at night? McInnes .vrites the "absence of rules is espedally true for men "at large", those finding themselves in the company of strangers, in elevators and on the street. For them there is no etiquette yt!t to ease the tension. So what should the male do in the situation that occurs on those late nights after dasses? Ms. Rouleau says that there is one wRly to ease the tension - when walking on same sidi': 0f the street as a woman, cross the street wlthollt saying a word to the woman. There is 110 real way to totally ease the 'i'lOman walking alone but there are solutions prc)Dl.l~m.Forthe everythe fear can be one. On the side the woman who is alone. scared shouldn't be neither of those are good solumay McInnes ends his never meet cautious but never grow to aU men."

Nickerson gets OJ rdjevicis goat To the

ed;to,.~

Mr. Nickerson's comments in "Affirmative Adion Contradicts its own Ends" revealed such misunderstanding and shortsightedness that they begged for response. First of aU, as regards the policy, "af~ firmative action" (or, as we refer to it in Canada, employment equity) does NOT rule that severely underquaHfied minorities should be give priority over greatly more 'fied white males. What it does state is in cases where the applicants have very similar qualifications, the minorities should be given hiring preference. This is done for several reasons; among gaps in reason, however,. is a ninon institutional biases and barriers that cause women and ethnic minorithemselves and thus

ment is an oversimplification of the notion of "justice" ("People should be said to posSt.'Ss equality in the eyes of the lawn). However, even the eyes of the law distinguish Oetv.'een formal and substantial justice. (1 won't clabo-rate here; you can read up on it.) In some cases, formal injustices (the letter of the law) will be tolerated in order to create subsumtial justice (actual results). This is the case of employment equity allowing for "reverse discrimination" if you wilt "equality" ll. and of itseU is an empty notion unless it is actualized. Liberal "equal opportunity" paradigms fail to achieve real simply blc'Ciluse not eVi:~ryone is the same equal original no:,itinn. The question of whether this inequality is inevitable and thus to be tolerated is the truly salient question. When one realizes these inequalities stem from accultured gender roles and economic inequalities between families, we are forced to reconsider how "inevitable" and "tolerable" they should be. It becomes apparent for the majority of the underprivileged that" opportunity" is one of those fake fun-house doors that onlv lead to brick walls and glass ceilings. " I\.1r. Nickerson's (and others') sacred "individual rights" are small consolation when one is arbitrarily assigned to economic ghettos (and all the accompanying "opportunities") by birth alone. All this is especially alarming given the phenomenal feminization of poverty over recent decades. It has finally dawned on our political geniuses that there is a correlation between thepatheticeconomicstatus of many womtm (especially single female parent households) and the laughable "opportunities" their children can expect. It is a selfperpetuating cycle created by a flawed and bigoted system and it i..<; the system that must now be fine tuned if we are ever to see any real and substantial equality. L. A.

To a&"lCrt, as Tomlinson does, thatInvestment Canada, ,vhichhas not prevented one foreign takeover of a Canadian corporation in its eight years of existence, is an adequate control over foreign corporations in Canada is nothing short of laughable. Furthermore, Tomlinson fails to recognize the changes in the Canadian economy that, should indiscriminate trade liberalization continue, will make Canada a much different country than that of the last thirty years. Canada built up a social safety net funded by a tax base to which corporations paid 33%. However, as Canada's large corporations have convinced the government that fewer corporate taxes are necessary in order to "compete" with foreign corporations, the tax burden has shifted dramaticallv to the consumer.I'oday, corporate taxes only make up 8% if federal tax revenue. We can continue to lure foreign corporations to Canada by offering them lower taxes and fewer trade but the result would not be a trading block of standards and " our health as Tomlinson bU};);t:Mb. The combination of it tax base so

dependent on consumer tax revenue and the lower-paying jobs that Canadians must at.'cept to "compete" will surely make our social programs unaffordable at theirctlrrent leveL Word limits prevent me from dealing adequatl!ly with all of Tomlinson's points, but one startling claim of his deserves particular attention: that small businesses, because they have a higher job creation rate, will havc more power over the Canadian economy that large corporotion.'!. Regardless of how many people they employ, Canada's top 500 corporations enjoy a greater percentage ofthe country's GDP th<m any other industrialized nation.

Atwal ... Beacon of Light To the editor: Re: Sandy Atwal's Paranoia Column, January 15. The new year can sometimes bring with it new blood to give Hfe to those who appear to be without. Last week's Paranoia by Atwal is one shining example of how a new year can revitalize the cosmos, or at least give us an insightful article in a school paper. Despite his simplistic understanding of the effect that our language has on our perception of the world, Atwal has turned Paranoia from something I used as a dinner placemat to a beacon calling in the night. It is an odd phenomenon how students, looking for something to identify themselves with, quickly latch on to an ideology like Political Correctness for dear life as if it will save them from the drowning waters of the Truth. The desire many have to help others by joining an organization or movement may itself be noble, but will not reach its goal by being dosed to the cIiticism of those who disagree with its ideology, whetheritbe"Left" or "Right". It is a shame when people engaged in the so called politically correct their dismissed as right wing backlash or asbeing an enemy of women and other oppressed groupings of people. Suchan approach to life doses our minds insights and takes the "thinking" of the term critical In of l"<R.U.Hlo!, harshlv it, ('Fiti(,l",m of Atwal's must go on, especially in a place like the University.

Campus not safe To the editor. I was surprised by Peter Brown's contention in the January 8th installment of his usually intuitive Fireside Chat that the . University of Waterloo has, until the murder of David Zaharchuk, provided an environment that offers students the freedom to study what, where, and when they wish. I sincerely hope that statement:". '... for the most part, the University of Waterloo campus has been a place that has . been untouched by the violence that would , interfere with that freedom" reflects ignorance of the numerous rapes which have occurred on this campus rather than an egregious disregard of the acts of violence against women which ta:\<e place at this university every year. While angered and shocked by the murder of David Zaharchuk, I am also angered and shocked that similar attention has not been paid to the sexual assaults which University administration has obviously done an effective job of silencing and will continue to silence if a forum such as yours persists in perpetuating their trecherous deceit. Such negligence on the part of both the University officials and the Imprint does a grievous disservice to the thousands of women and men attending this institution.

Bronwyn Atkinson 4N E.nglish Literature

Editor's note: If anyone has evidence that ; would suggest that either the University of Waterloo administration or Imprint is "silencing" or covering up sexual assaults on this campus, please contact Imprint editor-in-chief Peter Brown, news editor Ken Bryson, or ombudsperson Marianne Miller.

OUSA clarified \ To the editor. There was an error contained in a letter to the editor two weeks ago that I feel should be cleared up, to avoid confusion that may arise because of it. It concerns the letter from Kate Rushford, Rob McGeachy, and Dave Kruis. I want to point out that, regarding OUSA's income-contingent loanrepayment plan, the amount government would kick in is actually an increase of 8%, not 10%. While the percentage increase by government does not match students' increase, both groups end up contributing $160 million. Also, the private sector would increase its contribution by 5% over the next three years, not 3%. This represents about $40 million. (The Canadian Federation of Students is considering levying a 3% corporate tax.)

NAFTAOK To the editor_ Marc Xuereb's article 'Why Canadians Should Care About the NAFTA' (Imprint, January 8) purports, as its central goal, to encourage readers to become better informed about the proposed NAFTA. The start of the article begins by alerting the reader to the importance of the issue and suggests that NAFTA is 'an issue that has the potential to affect our daily lives'. A laudable goal indeed. The article, presumably under the guise of furthering this goal, unfortunately then goes on to present a series of flawed and unsupported arguments to support its tacitly stated theme: the 'ordinary citizen' reader should not support NAFTA or other trade agreements. A rational discussion of the issues is not presented. The reader is not more informed after'reading the article, but misinformed instead. A 'problem' highlighted by the author is that the ability of the government to intervene on 'behalf' of the ordinary citizen will be limited with implementation of this NAFTA. If the author is to convince us that the restraint of government power is a negative consequence of NAFTA then he

Forum should state exactly how the government is restrained by the agreement. As well, the author implicitly assumes that government intervention in the economy is a good thing for the individual and for Canadian society as a whole. It must be remembered that the government is just another organization which is subject to special interests and the motivations of its internal bureaucracies. The interests of 'ordinary' citizens are not necessarily a priority. Government interventionalist strategies are often disguised political favours or populist measures which are often not in the long term interests of 'ordinary' citizens. The fact that the government will have to think twice before considering some politically expedient policy initiative, is a positive result of NAFTA. The fact that implementation of a particular government policy can jeopardize the trade pact is not a bad thing. Agreements of any kind restrict the participants, to their mutual advantage. The agreement will be maint"ined simply as long as the benefits of the agreement outweigh the costs for all participants. The author's claim that economic decisions are being left to 'a small coterie of shareholders' is simplistic. Economic decisions are left to the decentralized marketplace where corporations and individuals interact with varying degrees of influence. This marketplace will produce a resource allocation which is far more efficient and democratic then any which can be created through centralized government decision making. In many cases, corporations themselves prefer the predictable world of government planning and restricted markets to the volatile and competitive world of the marketplace. ~ When considering the limitation of government intervention in relation to NAFTA, it must be remembered that NAFTA is an agreement which applies to three countries and that these limitations would apply to the governments of these other countries as well. The agreement exists to insure that other governments do not intervene 'on behalf' of their citizens to the detriment of other agreement participants. It is reasonable to assume that this restriction of foreign government intervention could work to the benefit of 'ordinary' Canadian citizens. The author asks, 'at what cost' do we transform Canada into a competitive environment for business? In turn, I would ask, at what cost do we fail to do so? If it is important to maintain ft;ee health care, accessible education, and a minimum subsidy for those unable or unwilling to work, then, is it not important to ensure that the productive side of the economy is able to generate the wealth necessary to pay for these programs? Clearly, the present level of income generated in Canada is insufficient to provide for our current level of government expenditures. Huge government debt levels represent a far greater threat to social programs then do international trade agreements. Increasing Canada's competitiveness is vital to producing the wealth necessary to.finance social programs. Since even the author acknowledges that NAFTA will create a more competitive business environment, does this not lead one to believe that the implementation of NAFTA could prove beneficial? , In any case, competition with the world cannot be avoided through the abandonment of NAFTA. Countries like Mexico are becoming competitive whether we like it or not. Increased political stability and deregulation of the Mexican economy have achieved in a few years what backward nationalistic interventionalist policies have failed to do for decades. Can it be to the benefit of Canada to adapt this same backward nationalistic approach to international trade matters which has kept countries like Mexico isolated and poor through much of its history? The author fails to inform the reader of any potential positive consequences of NAFfA. NAFTA gives Canada the opportunity to participate in the refinement of international environmental standards and trade regulations. Trade agreements offer the possibility of settling disputes without political interference through the use of a dispute settlement mechanism. Such mechanisms can help to prevent unfair trade practices and the escalation of

disputes into trade wars. Without international influence, pollution of the environment in Mexico will continue unabated. NAFTA offers the possibility Mexico will agree to the implementation of common environmental standards. Non-participation gives us no influence in the development of these matters. The author also does his readers a disservice by not discussing the real NAFTA issues that 'ordinary' Canadians should be concerned about. For one, there is a danger that such agreements can be coopted by special interests such as big business, labour unions and citizen advocacy groups. If the true principles of the agreement are compromised then its value is lessened and benefits are reduced. 'Ordinary' citizens should be concerned about NAFTA because formulation of the agreement may result in regrettable exemptions and compromise to special interests. Finally, as a counter to Mr. Xuereb's plug for WPIRG, readers may wish to reconsider their contribution to dissemina- . tion of that organization's economic mythology. Membership in WPIRG is voluntary. Consider seeking a refund if you do not agree with the views which that organization upholds. . Many alternatives to WPIRG exist which espouse a higher degree of rationality in their analysis of economic, political and environmental matters.

Reasons to dance To the editor. I am a student in dance and psychology. In the course of my studies, I have become accustomed to the tiresome chore of explaining why the dance department is a part of this university and why I chose to be a part of it. I never thought I would have to explain this to the university itself. I hope the president is reading this. No, I do not want to be a dancer. The average dance student takes five academic courses plus two dance technique courses per term. This amounts to about six hours of pure technique classes per week, so anyone who wants to be a professional dancer must either make time to attend extra classes and engage in some form of cardiovascular training or study at a performance-oriented institution. W~ do, however, put together a student/faculty concert in March of every year. About half (sometimes more) of the work shown is the result of independent ventures by students. Although we spend months choreographing and rehersing for this concert, no academic credit is given for works created outside of composition courses. No, I do not want to teach dance. Many students do, though, and we have a nationally renowned,five-year teacher training program that combines training at the University of Waterloo with training at the National Ballet School in Toronto. It should be noted that the National Ballet School chose Waterloo over two performance-oriented university dance programs in Toronto because of the developmental and physiological approach we take to the study of movement learning and motor skill acquisition. Why should anyone spend five years learning how to teach dance? Ask anyone who has permanent stuctural damage to their lower limbs because someone put them in point shoes while their bones were still growing. Think about that when you sign your little girls up for ballet lessons. This is the only teacher training program of its kind in Canada. Lastly, I am not here because I couldn't get into anything else. I started out in Urban Planning. Like many other dance students, I graduated from secondary school as an Ontario Scholar while dancing almost every night of the week. So why am I here? I'm here because I want to pursue graduate studies in health psychology, specifically, in the identification and treatment of eating disorders in dance populations. I could pursue psychology alone, but I wouldn't have much credibility in the field if I couldn't see the world from a dancer's point of view. The same principle can be applied to those of us

studying arts administration (dance and business), the physiology of dance (dance + kinesiology + health)< dance criticism (dance and English), ... I am not only worried about the future of this department, but the precedent that may be set by this university. How many other departments are expendable? I can understand budget cutbacks, financial constraints, and even a little restructuring,but I can't have faith in a university that would abandon its past, present, and future students. We came to this university for education, guidance, and enlightenment. Right now we can't even get a copy of the budget. We trusted the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences to support us, but, for all the support I've detected, we might as well be on our own. Some people have argued that other programs in AHS are more "vital". That's a matter of opinion, but you still don't cut off your right hand because you need your heart more. The founders of this program set out to make it stand out, to make it a blend of creative art and physiological science. I just hope that the individuals who make the final decision realize just how unique and valuable this program is before we are forced to bring down the curtain for the very last time. M.

You路1I Never Walk Alone Again To the editor. I am writing with regards to the University's "WALKSAFE" program, which is designed to walk students home from night school programs (or at least that's what I thought). I was quite impressed by the idea, until the need arose for me to use this service. I called the number for "WALKSAFE" and upon asking for the proper extension I was very rudely told ~t "W.ALKSAFE'~ didn't start!lntil eight o clock m the everung. Then I 'WaS left listening to an empty dial tone as the phone was abruptly hung up on me. I think that the manner in which this was handled is deplorable considering that there was a murder at the University just a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps somebody should review this situation, as I'm sure that crimes such as assaults and murders don't just happen after eight o'clock in the evening. It begins to get dark around six o'clock, and to me it's just as dangerous as it is at eight 0' dock.

Itlls not easy being Green To the editor. I would like to take this opportunity to reply to D. Thomson regarding his comments on the "Green Men" on the University's payroll. As to his statement that two student helpers were in trouble for finishing their day's work too early, I can only say that this statement could be detrimental to the hiring of your fellow students in the future. Think about that before you make any more rash remarks. The next thing I would like to point out to D. Thomson is that, no matter how efficient a company, university, etc. is, you can always point fingers. As regards the work ethics of the "Green Men"-if it were not for their conscientious approach to their tasks, there could be a snowball effect, i.e., the efficiency of running the University would go down, and more major breakdowns would occur, resulting in costly repairs, taking more money from the University budget and causing higher tuition fees for you and your fellow students. .

I come contingency key to OUSA proposal by Davyd Funk and Dave Mart;n special to Imprint

In October 1992, students in Ontario took a bold,new approach to confronting theproblems facing our universities. The Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA) representing 85,000 students from UW, Brock, Wilfrid Laurier, the University of Toronto, and Queen's presented a document entitled "Students for Change: Access, Student Aid and Financial Recovery for Post Secondary Education in Ontario". The proposal presents a critical analysis of three major elements: 1) Accessibility to post-secondary education; 2) Funding of universities; and 3) Accountability to the public and students. The situations forwarded offer a basis for the long-term recovery of our education system. OUSA believes that every academically qualified individual should be guaranteed access to post-secondary education. Increased accessibility can be accomplished by removing the barriers that students may face. There are many, including family and personal income, tuition fees, cost of living, student aid, parents' education peer groups, availability of information, and personal motivation. Clearly, tuition fees are but one of many factors that combine to influence an individual's decision and actually represent only a small portion of the total cost of pursuing a university education. Accessibility cannot be accomplished simply by eliminating tuition fees and the excfusive emphasis that has been placed on them as a barrier to post secondary education has precluded an effective solution to the problem. It is evident that any program or policy which intends to enhance accessibility must take a comprehensive approach by providing both the information and resources required to gain entry to post secondary institutions. Currently, the federal and provincial> govenunentsoperate a needs-based program of financial aid for Ontario's students. In 1991-92, the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) received 195,000 applications and distributed $692 million instudentassistance. Grants accounted for approximately 35 per cent of this total, while the remainder was in loans with a govenunent interest subsidy.

In 1993-94,afierrevisions to theOSAP system $800 million will be available, almost exclusively in loans. OSAP has been persistently criticized. on several fronts; the program has never met its stated objective of providing all qualified students with the means to attend post secondary education. As it stands, OSAP has several major flaws. Levels of assistance are based on assumptions about costs of education that are substantially lower than actual costs incurred. OSAP attempts to calculate the amount that parents can afford to contribute to a dependent students' education. However, the method used cannot make fair and accurate assessments. Compounding this are the variations in ideas of parental responsibility. A steadily increasingnumberofOntario'slamiliesmake little or no contribution towards their children's education, yet OSAP continues to assume that they do. A fair and effective assistance program must allow students to gain financial independence from their families. OUSA has given their support to a system commonly referred to as income contingent loan repayment plans (ICLRP). The fundamental concept of such a plan is that stu.dents receive loans from the govenunent while at university and repay them after graduation through the income tax system as a percentage of their taxable income. This plan would allow all students to receive the financial assistance they- require, and introduce a more flexible loan repayment structure based on the graduate's income. In broad tenns, the system would operate as follows: Eligibility - Any Canadian-citizen or permanent resident would be automatically eligible for loans to cover all mandatory fees (tuition, co-op fees, etc.). Students could pa:5' all or part of theirfees up front as usual if they did not wish to take advantage of the loan. Payment of fees would be made by the govenunent directly to the universities for efficiency and to avoid abuse. ExplOitation of the system could also be prevented through the application of interest. Beyond this, further aid is necessary to cover additional costs (books, food, rent, etc.). This assistance would be in the form of loans and grants based on demonstrated need. Repayment - Loans would be repaid through Revenue Canada by making deductions .rrom earnings, calculated as a percentage 'of the individual's income, at the same time that income tax in cellected. On the

World Religion Day by Association for Baha'i Studies

The third annual observance of "World Religion Day" at the University of Waterloo, sponsored by the Association for Baha'i Studies, the Human Rights Board of the Federation of Students, and the Student Christian Movement, was successfully held January 21, 1993. This year's theme was "Women in the Faith: Past and Present." The history of World Religion Day ijanuary 17) is longer than one might expect. It was created in response to the call "0 people! Consort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship" made by Baha'u'llah around the close of the 19th century. It was first held in 1950 by the American Baha'i Community. Since that time Baha'i Communities the world over have sponsored its observance, though few governing bodies formally recognize it (Sri Lanka is one of the few; Canada is not). While the call that prompted its initiation and its actual form are simple, the spirit and intent are much less modest. The day is meant to remind people of, and in all too many cases reorient people's thinking to, the true intent of all religion - its spirit of unity and message of love. Baha'u'llah, referring not to only one but to all faiths, express~d it in these words "The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is' to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men. Suffer it not to become a source of dissension and discord, of hate and enmity ... ." So important is this essencethat'Abdu1-Baha,theappointedsuc-

cessor of Haha'u'llah, asserted, "The religion of God is the cause of love, but if it is made to be the source of enmity and bloodshed, surely its absence is preferable to its existence; for then it becomes satanic, detrimental and an obstacle to the human world." ,Abdu'l-Baha, in one of his many treatises, points out that the theme of unity, while not always expressed overtly, has always been present in the Sacred Writings of the Prophets, or Manifestations, of God. All the divine Manifestations have proclaimed the oneness of God and the unity of mankind. They have taught that men should love and mutually help each other in order that they might progress. Now, if this conception of religion be true, its essential principle is the oneness of humanity>" World Religion Day is an opportunity to explore and reaffirm the core unity of spirit shared in the Books that have inspired civilization. Such a celebration is critically important in these hours when every aspect of civilization appears to be buckling under forces both unstoppable and unrecognized. Every day a new crisis appears; every day we find more ground lost than gained. The hope of the Association for Baha'i Studies echoes that of Baha'u'llah - that the annual holding of World Religion Day will mark the beginning of weightier undertakings and collaborations between UW's faith communities. "Our hope is that the world's religious leaders and rulers thereof will unitedly arise for the reformation of this age and the rehabilitation of its fortues. Let them, after meditating on its needs, take counsel together and, through anxious and full deliberation, administer to a diseased and sorely-afflicted world the remedy it requires .... " -Baha'u'llah II

income tax return, corrections to the actual amount paid would occur. Payments would not be required Unless the individual's income exceeded Ontario mean average, currently about $22,000. A sliding scale could be used so that low incomeeamers might pay three per cent, high income earners might pay six per cent. Individuals would not be required to make more that 15 payments in theirllietime to eliminate ~e possibility of being in perpetual debt. The loan could be repaid early without penalty. Obviously, there are many specific details and policy variations that are not outlined, andno system will be perfect for everyone. However, the improvements over the current assistance program are tremendous. The ICLRP system would provide much higher availability of loans to students and decrease the dependence on parental contributions. Paperwork and response time would be reduced through the Simplification of the eligibility requirements for loans to cover university fees. . The loan repayment scheme allows flexibility by basing the required repayment on an individuals' taxable income, unlike the current system which gives you nine and a half years to repay the loan regardless of your ability to pay. At the same time, the use of the tax system makes it much more difficult to avoid making repayments when able. That same structure also gives the govenunent the security they require to make more loans initially since the method of collection provides two much greater guarantees that loans will be repaid in full. Implementing this system would almost eliminate defaulters since virtually all grads who are able to secure jobs tend to earn above average incomes. This would be a great improvement over the current OSAP system where the inflexibility has caused default level to exceed $1 billion. U. of T. economics professor Dr. David Stager has explored the financial viability of such a plan. Through computer simulation, using economic models based on actual em-

ployment rates and income levels, he was able to demonstrate that virtually all loans would be repaid in less than 15 years. Further to this, by extending the repayment period beyond 15 years, costs would actually increase due to added administrative expenses. The plan's most attractive feature is its flexibility. It is able to deliver student aid based on the real costs that students experience. This aspect, coupled with tenns of payback that can be designed to take into account the actual income ofgraduates, make it a very attractive and workable plan (for all stakeholders). Accessibility to post secondary education, also includes reaching those groups who traditionally do not attend. Accessibility to post secondary education is not limited to fmancial barriers as many under-represented groups often do not receive adequate information or skills required to attend. Such information should include necessary qualifications as well as a guideline for expected job opportunities and income levels after graduation. Manitoba has been operating such a pr0gram, labelled ACCESS, for approximately 17 years. This program integrates active recruitment, financial aid, counselling, tutoring, and special introductory courses that are designed to furnish students with the necessary skills and information to motivate them. OUSA has proposed that the government analyze this program and related outreach initiatives with the intention of creating a similar program in Ontario. Accessibility to post secondary education must be addressed by a comprehensive program of effective student aid and an informative outreach program like the initiatives proposed by OUSA. Next week, we will discuss funding to post secondary institutions, the crisis the sys~ tem is facing now and possible solutions.

'Pax Americana by Phillip Chee

I had two profound chats while selling tickets during the Fringe Festival this summer. I struck up a conversation with someone just hanging out at the venue where I was selling tickets. I said we were heading into another Dark Age. He (I'll point out that he was a Canadian) agreed with the sentiment, and both of us brought forth various facts, bits ?f evidence, speculations and arguments to illustrate our mutual position. The second conversation was with my venue manager, an American, who questioned my statement and wanted an explanation. I want to add something more to what I told her. ' Okay, "Dark Age" may be too harsh a judgement. But I'm sceptical about what the future may bring because whoever controls the past controls the future - so I read. This may be all too true if you rest your argument on the idea that television is a medium of propaganda unlike any known to history. Yet !ele,:isi~n didn't help get Rodney King get .:my Justice. My problem is not television, though. Television does not reflect reality. It is much more than that. In part, it is the end of the world as we know it. In another, it is a return to a world we'd rather just forget. With the rise of neo-fasdsts in parts of Europe, there is ? hint of something very wrong going on. To Ignore such symbolism, to ignore the social life that makes it possible, is to ilirt with a history ready to repeat itself with a vengeance - "an accident waiting to happen." So, smash fascism wherever it pokes its ugly head? To some, the Dark Age of western" civilization" happened when the Roman empire was in its death throes. If this is true, dark ~ras, where evil seems to have a field day, fall among the shadows of a once great impenal power. The Soviet Union is not that empirei itis the United States of America. Ameri-

can influence, formerly economic, now military, is Noam Chomsky'S worst nightmare-and frighteningly global. The influence of the centralized authority of Washington D.C. in world events is remarkable for its failings within its own border. In c;l0mestic issues, the Republicans seemed mtent on protecting the privileges of the wealthy, a "family" that excludes Blacks, lesbians and gays, feminists, poor people, or, anyone who doesn't make a living from exploitingother human beings. Why did George Bush want to save the "American Family" so much? Could it be because, if every family in the US were like the First Family, nobody would notice the country falling apart around them? I make this point because there are people in the US who are trying to make their country a better place. These activists must not only fight ignorance and old habits, but ?lso ~eir own governments. They are fightmg attitudes that are adverse to social change attitudes taught as matter-of-factly as that th~ stth z:ises.in the ~ast and sets in the west. They are fighting attitudes that label compassion and concern for fellow human beings as "socialism" or worse, "Communism." To govern a nation that covers the vastness that the US does (or even Canada, China, or the former Soviet Union) often seems to require an imperial fonn of government. Canadian imperialism is benign, even if absurd. That our own governments have genuinely cared for their citizens most of the time makes Canada a worthy place to live. The fall from the high moral ground, however, can be rather painful. Canadian cities suffer from the same problem as any that lives in thrall to a dimming imperial centre, only this time, the feudal robber barons of the medieval age are being replaced by the multinational corporations. It is a Dark Age when reason seems futile against the "white noise" of civilization. Here's to you, Mr. Clinton.

David Zaharchuck will be missed the most by his friends and his family, but his death also has a special relevance to the philosophical community. Zaharchuck was one of the founding members of the University of Waterloo's Students of Objectivism club. While not acquainted with either Zaharchuck orthe Students of Objectivism, I have spent a brief amount time 'studying the works of Ayn Rand. Rand's philosophy is most clearly summed up in Atlas Shrugged - her novel about architect John Galt. In it, as well as in her other novels, ·We the Uving". •Anthem" and "The Fountainhead". Rand creates a philosophy which places the utmost importance upon our ability to reason and apprehend the world around us completely divorced of any element of mysticism or faith. For Rand, the world is comprised of an objective reality, which our senses perceive, and our consciousness which does the perceiving. Rand rejects the philosophy of men like Plato or Kant because they tend to separate what is knowable from our understanding ~y introducing things like the world of ideas. In Plato's case. As mentioned, objectivism is a secular philosophy, rejecting the teachings of Christianity, since again, this puts an idea- Godas the creator of reality, and this requires us to use faith rather than reason to try to comprehend our reality. Rand places the utmost importance upon the ability of the individual to think for him or herself. Reason is thus defined by Rand as "the faculty that identifies and integrates the material provided by man's

senses." Her stress upon the ability of people to reason relates to how she understands the world in terms of the perceived and the perceiver. If this is how the world is understood, then only through reason can individuals achieve any of their goals. 'Reason, then, is the key to mankind's survival. From the simplest pebble tools to a nuclear reactor, it is reason and reason alone which has allowed us to survive. . Another key element of this philosophy IS the freedom required by individuals to make use of their reason. It obviously does us no good to be able to use our reason if it fettered by the bonds of the state. The only use Rand has for the government, then is that it should be used to protect rights. The "ideal" for Rand was the model set up by the American Founding Fathers. The original model forthe United States was a minir::nal state- the antithesis of the Monarchy the new Americans had left which would play'a very minor role in American politics, since at the outset, the majority of political decisions were left up to the individual states. Hand in hand with this idea is the idea of laissez-faire capitalism. Only with a truly free market can individuals be considered free to pursue their desires and their goals. Obviously this is a terribly brief overview of Objectivism. Anyone interested in finding out more about Ayn Rand, Objectivism, or philosophy in general may wish to attend one ore more of the lectures held by the students of Objectivism - the next lecture is held Feb. 9th at 7:30 pm in ML 349.

Last week, Sandy Atwal wrote about the dangers of changing language without changing the underlying truths behind the words. This wiek marks World Religions Day, and the theme this year is Women and the Faith. I would like to explore how language and words have affected religiOUS women (specifically Christianwomen),and to see if Mr. Atwal'ssecularsolutionsapply to the religious world as well. I remember sitting in church when I was six years old, repeating to the words of the Nicene Creed, which talked about Jesus, "who for us men and 'our salvation came down from heaven ...." I was only six, but I knew I wasn't a "man", and decided that Jesus had not come for me. The mainline churches in Canada have been grappling with inclusive language for about a decade now, and congregations have split over the issue. The Bible was written by mentor men living in a patriarchal society which believed in a male God. Women were chattel, property valued above oxen but below houses in the Ten Commandments. Because the mythology of the culture attributed the first sin to the first woman, all women were branded inferior to all men (withtheexceptionofmale slaves, of course). Patriarchal culture did not end with the beginning of Christianity; when scripture was translated into everyday languages, the male pronouns and assumptions remained. 'This means that the Bible we have today frequently contains ''he'' and ''his'' when gender-neutral pronouns would be more appropriate (as in the New Revised Standard Version). There are a lot of people who become upset over inclusive language. A friend of mine received a Christmas card this year that read "Peace on Earth, Goodwill Toward Women ... (that, of course, includes

men.)" Many women (and men) are fighting to make the language used in religious communities more inclusive. The word "man" does not accurately describe all of humanity; ''he'' is not a gender-neutral pronoun; a "clergyman" or "layman" (or "chairman" or "fireman" or "policeman") has to have a penis. There is a great deal of resistance, mostly from those who find any kind of change threatening. There is also some resistance from feminists to making biblicallanguage inclusive. If we gloss over the repression of women, that Christianity has for so long advocated, by changing a few pronouns here and there, there is a danger of forgetting. The oppression needs to be named, to be identified, before it can be changed. Until that happens, any attempt at inclusive language will be deceiving. Mr. Atwal suggests that words have no power to change things, that reality has to change first. I would counter with the suggestion that words hold a great deal of power. As long as women continue to feel excluded from the life of their religious communities by the language that is used, their reality cannot change. Once women feel included, they are free to view themselves as equal members, in community with men and each other. I will continue to fight for more inclusive language in my religious life, in the hope that no other six-year-old girl is made to feel excluded from her religious community, or from the love of her God.

Anarchy, State, Utopia and Ursula K. LeGuin by David Switzer Special to Imprint This week, Mr. Switzer concludes his twopart feature on Anarchy. Last week, Ire touched on such areas as the eradication ofcrime, the privatization of schools and the theoretical aspects of anarchy. This week, Switzer provides a model and a possible road to this Anarchist Utopia.

Anarchy in The Dispossessed Examples of anarchies exist only in the realm of fiction. The Anarresti society in Ursula K. LeGuin's The Dispossessed is one such example. The quotations in this section are taken from the 1975 edition of the Avon novel. Shevek, the protagonist of The Dispossessed, is" an anarchist who travels from his native moon Anarres to the planet Urras. Urras is much like Earth, whereas Anarres supports a working anarchy. The people of Anarres are descendants ofsettlers who originally came from Urras 170 years earlier. The Annaresti have had little contact with the Urrasti, but Shevek and a few others believe that they should. unbuild the wall they have setup around them. The Urrastiallow Shevek to come to their planet because they believe Shevekwillproducea temporal physics theory that will give them an edge over their adversaries. Shevek eventually is inspired to write the theory he has been working on for ten years, but he decides that he must give it to everyone, not just the Urrasti. Anarchy, the Anarrestiwayoflife for 170 years, is not a return to the past. Urban society is a fact, but "the natural limit to the size of a community [lies] in its dependence on its own immediate region for essential food and power" (p. 77). Taking a walk down any street, one would see that "no doors [are] locked, few shut. There [are] no disguises and no advertisements. It [is] all there, all the work, all the life of the city, open to the eye and to the hand" (pp. 80-81). The Anarresti know and trust the people in their community. They have nothing to hide from each other. Everyone is equal on Anarres. Shevek is surprised when he finds out that men and women on Urras have different types of jobs. Urrasti masculine and feminine qualities are also distinct and stereotyped. Jobs on Anarres are organized by a "network of administration and management ... They are a coordinating system for all syndicates, federatives, and individuals who do productive work ... They have no authority ... They can only tell [the people] the public opinion of {them] (p. 61). The incentive for working is not money, but pride in a job well done. As for disagreeable or dangerous jobs, the netwerk may ask an individual to perform such a task one day in ten. Of course, people who like that type of work may do it for as long as they want. This process is not a highly efficient one for getting the work done, but no one can force another to work at a particular job. Most Anarresti feel they have a moral obligation to do productive work. The Anarresti own no property. The founder of the anarchic society axiomized, "to make a thief, make an owner; to create a crime, create laws" (p. 112). The people are free to do as they please. However, if the community decides that someone has done something intolerable, it may take action against that person. Peopl~ who do not fit in anywhere may go off and live on their own. At the end of the novel, Shevek's "hands were empty, as they had always been" (p. 311). He knows that we come into the world with nothing, and we leave it with nothing. Shevekbelievesthat"ifwemustallagree ... we're no better than a machine" (p. 288). TheAnarresti have been moving towards rule by the majority, but any rule is tyranny. They must constantly guard against the authoritarian impulse. At universities on Anarres, courses are offered on "student demand, or on the teacher's initiative, or by stUdents and teachers together" (po 102). Students learn what they want to learn; teachers teach what they want to teach, but they are also continuously learning. When Shevek is told about the Urrasti examination system - our examination system - "he could not imagine a greater deter-

rent to the natural wish to learn than this pattern of cramming in information and disgorging it at demand" (p. 103). The Anarresti anarchy was originally intended to be put into practice on Urras, which is much like Earth. Could anarchy work here on Earth? If we read this novel and others (see Joan Slonczewski" sA Door into the Ocean), we realize the benefits of such an anarchic system and see the evils of Urras as our own.

The Road of Anarchy Although everyone is fed up with government, you don't very often hear the suggestion that we should have no government at all. Why is this? Surely if we had no government, there would be pandemonium. I agree - if government were abolished tomorrow, chaos would undoubtedly result. However, with a .gradual change in values, the road of anarchy can be paved. Perhaps you believe that anarchy would be the best way, but it is too idealistic and utopian. Even if it is, we should still strive to become better than we are. Because anarchy is not a constant state, we cannot speak of a road to anarchy. Anarchy allows for constant change. I will now postulate some steps thatwe might take along this road. The first step is believing that we can change. We must discourage consumerism and encourage creativity and political informedness. Thepeoplein&overnmentmust be more diverse, and there must be more of them. We must form small communities and allow people to choose jobs they enjoy. The police must be integrated into communities, and the judicial sytem must be made nonadversarial. We must give lawbreakers a chance to be productive, and we must work to give a postive connotation to the word "anarchy." One major problem in our society is that people don't think they can make a difference. The notion that 1 am only one person' seems to imply that there is someone around the comer who is not one person."The current scientific theory called chaos theory tells us that small changes made at one end of a proceSs may produce big changes at the other end. As the fluttering of a butterfly's wings affects the weather hundreds of kilometres away (this is why the meteorologist is always wrong), what we do has repercussions that we will never know about. Believing that we can make a difference better equips us to do so. One of the values that need changing is the acquistion of property. Many people have found that material things do not make them happy. So why do we still buy more and more things? We come into this world with nothing, and we leave it with nothing. It would make sense to share what we have while we are here. The concept of property rights is already being challenged; recall recent battles over urban dwellers cutting down trees on their property. We need to encourage creativity, not conformity. People who blindly follow orders are good for an army (significantly), but not for a healthy society. Creativity is the basis for a more participatory culture. We are no better than machines if we must all agree. Prejudice is a major barrier to harmonious living. We should celebrate our infinite diversity in infinite combinations. Humans are part of ecosystems, which will increase in biodiverstiy if left alone. Our natural state is one of diverstity. If everyone were the same, the world would be a boring place. According to David Suzuki, "we get the governments we deserve." People need to keep themselves informed about issues the government is facing. We should make our informed postions known to those who represent us. It is always easier not to think for oneself, but do we really want others to do our thinking for us? We must educate all people to be critical thinkers and decision makers. More people need to be involved in decision making. Full-time politicians inevitably possess their own agendas. It is not logical that more important decisions are made. by fewer people. When more people are involved in decision making, it takes more time to make a decision. However, if we take longer

to make the decision, it will last longer. Citizen participation has grown significantly in the past 20 years, but it must grow further. There are pressures to extend the form and content of this participation by environmentalists, feminists, and anarchists. To those in. the minority, the tyranny of the majority looks just the same as the tyranny of the few. We must create small communities, perhaps even within big cities, in which everyone can be involved. When we know the people in our community, we feel a sense of security. We know that we can count on our friends when there is something we need. Decisions that only affect the community should be made by the community. The opinion of neighbours becomes a great force in such a community. People would feel obligated to work at useful tasks rather than at tasks that gain them material wealth. Some people whose jobs would disappear in anarchy are police officers, bureaucrats, advertisers, and charity workers. According to Alexander Berkman, if these peapIe performing nonessential tasks today were to perform useful tasks instead, we would all only need to work three hours per day to support the world. In any case, if people are given a chance to do what they enjoy, they will be more efficient. We must give everyone equal opportunity to education and training (note that these are separate). We must also give workers knowledge about the entire process in which they playa part. Police officers should be better integrated into communities and given a more preventive role. The police have a negative connotation for many people; when they're around, something bad has happened. Crimeprevention programs in which citizens keep watch over their neighbourhood are a step in the right direction. Nonadversarial alternatives to our judicial system are meeting with success where they are being tested. In mediation,all parties use principled negotiation techniques in or-

der to solve their problems. Arbitration includes an objective third party whose decision is binding. Advocacy is needed in cases in which there exists a power imbalance among parties. What we do with "criminals" is ludicrous. We shelter them and pay people to watch them and feed them. We put them away so we don't have to think abou.t them, but we're wasting a lot of money holding them there. This procedure does not address the root of the problem. Instead of imprisoning these people, we should give them a chance to be productive members of society. Given a job which they enjoy and access to the necessities of life, the vast majority of these people would cease to be a burden. Anarchy could be described as the ultimate participatory democracy. Democracy enjoys a postive connotation, although modem democracy is dearly flawed. Anarchy possesses a negative connotation generally, and yet, when you extend democracy to its logical conclusion, you get anarchy. We have lived with government for so long that we accept it as natural. The people in government are addicted to power, and they perpetuate the myth that government is necessary. Our belief in the necessity of govemmentis what sustains it. Government may solve some problems, but its disadvantages outweigh its advantages. Any system that gives people power over others is immoral. The only societal format that allows us to fulfill our potential is anarchy. It maybe impossible to imagine what life will be like in the future. We can, however, make changes in our own lives that we believetoberight.Andnomatterwhatwedoin life, we will make a difference. The process of paving the road is more important than the end result, because there never will be an end; we will constantly change. Anarchy may not exist in our lifetimes, but we can help make it the future of human society.

Free Trade and post-secondary education Universities will become no more than "skills factories, " says third in NAFTA series by Scott Morratto speciol to Imprint In last Friday's Imprint, Marc Xuereb outlined some of the many critical issues involved in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and with the larger trend toward "globalization" and international economic integration. Widespread concern over these many issues is reflected in the current political discourse of all three of the countries involved in the NAFTA. But what lies at the centre of the maelstrom of passionate debate and deep political division is the vital question of what it means to live in a democracy. Nobody can deny that the appearance of a deal like the NAFTA on the North American scene is reflective of new trends both in corporate political strategy buf also in popular political values. At the same time, however, none can deny that most Canadians, at least, are not happy with the changes and are deeply fearful about their implications for our lives. My intent here is notto placate those fears, for I believe they are well founded, but rather to discuss the implications of this new corporate strategy on the education system (particularly post-secondary education) in Canada. , The Paradigmatic Crisis in Education I believe that we are facing an impending paradigmatic crisis in education. I refer to a 'paradigmatic crisis' because I believe the problem is deeply rooted in the values engendered by a neo-conservative political agenda such as the one which currently dominates the Canadian scene and which has brought us "free" trade. This ideology'is evidenced in the language of "growth" and "competitiveness", words hurled at us from every direction by a tireless corporate propaganda machine, with the desired effect being fear - the fear of stagnation, the fear of lagging behind in a cutthroat global economy. This language carries a lot of weight with a people who are economically insecure and a generation of young people who are facing the prospect of a lower overall standard of living than that enjoyed by their parents. In this environment, it is easy for business and government to legitimate the dismantling of socialized medicine, universal social programs, and 'public' education at the post-secondary level. They will simply tell us that we must tighten our belts if we are going to play in the big leagues. (In popular Latin Americanblack-humour,acommonresponse to government rhetoric about "tightening the belt" is, "1 am sorry, I ate it!"') With such rhetoric abounding, many Canadians have resigned themselves to the loss of government programs and democratic institutionswhichwe fought long and hard to establish. And though most Canadians, according to polls, reject the NAFTA, the ec0nomic strategy of which it is an integral part has been slowly woven into the fabric of Canadian life over the past nine years of Tory rule.

The document argues for a model that stresses specialized skills development. In this new capacity (what some have termed "skills factories"), universities are to stress "results" over "process". In short, capital no longer needs universities but various kinds of technical colleges. The document is fairly explicit about the government's intention to encourage more direct corporate involvement in post-secondaryeducation. This undoubtedly means more cutbacks in government funding in order to encourage universities to seek assistance from corporations. The central idea is simple: by creating a more significant administrative role for corporations in the world of post-secondary education, the system will respond more effectively to the demands of capital, and that means greater investment. Now/on the surface, having been conditioned for the logic of this argument by a relentless barrage of Tory rhetoric about competitiveness, that document may not seem halfbad.

- To anyone who knows a little about the history of public education in Canada it will be painfully clear that this new direction for education constitutes a serious compromise of the original principles upon which the system was based. As with social welfare and health care, Canadians have always seen public control in education as the only means for maintaining a healthy democracy and a state which represents and reflects some of the basic values of the Canadian people. So in regard to the NAFTA, and the overall structural change of which it is one aspect, we must ask ourselves again, how much say will we have in the future directions which public life in Canada will take? How much power over the fabric of our communities is being sold to corporations? In fact, rather than asking how much control we are giving up with this agreement, one would get a more manageable answer by asking: what will be left? .

Therefore, any and all public resources should be directed toward making the nation a fertile ground for capital investment and economic growth, notwithstanding the essential identity and particular needs of the people.

Reforms to the CSLP would include a shift in emphasis away from "enhancing access" to post secondary education for those who cannot afford it, and toward the facilitation of workforce development (Le. responding to the requirements of corporate interests). In addition, this new direction for the CSLP, by suggesting a sharing of responsibility for student loans with private banks, implies that ·the government is looking to get out of the business of guaranteeing student loans.

Plague loses clash of OUAA West volleyball titans by Rich Nichol Imprint sports

Friday night's interuniversity action featured a clash between the two perennial OUAA West volleyball division titans McMaster and Waterloo. , Back in November, the "Black Plague" Warriors took the previous bout at home in a thrilling five set victory (15-7,6-15, 15-3, 11-15, and 15-11) to move into a first place tie with the Steeltown crew and the twopowerhouseshavejockeyedfor position throughout the first half of the schedule. This contest, played in Hamilton, would more than likely determine home court advantage for the post-season and the division title. The pennant race was the last thing on the Plague's priority list Friday night. They were just thankful to have aU of their starters off the injury list and back together again. Unfortunately, with only a few days of practice together as a full team, the Warriors suffered their second straight loss,losing in three straight but dose sets, 15-8, 15-10, and 1716. TheMaraudersbl~edordug

up enough attacks to shut down Waterloo's normally potent offence which managed a paltry 15 percent ldll efficiency. McMaster stonewalled the attack with20 stuff blocks compared to only six by the Plague in the 66 minute contest. Waterloo top gun and OUAA West scoring leader Jon Tenthorey was held to 17 points which included 16 kills. Rene Holt, currently sixth in divisional scoring, added 11 points. Meanwhile, the Warrior's middIe players were outperformed by their counterparts. Marauder veteransJudePoppand BarryTeplicky combined for 28 points and committed only three errors. Popp led all scorers with 21 points on 12ldlls and nine stuff blocks. On a bright note, Waterloo was able' to silence Marauder scoring leader Fergus McLaren to a meagre five points. McMaster (now with a 7-1 record) has a four point lead on the second-place Warriors who are currently 5-3. The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks are in third at (4-2) and the Western Mustangs are fourth at (4-3). The Brock Badgers (3-4), Windsor Lancers (2-5), and Guelph Gryphons (0-7) will challenge these teams for a playoff spot. One saving grace for the injury stricken Warriors is that the toughest part of their schedule is behind them and the long road trip is over. Of their four remaining league games, three of them are at home (against Laurier, Guelph, and Western) and the other is in Windsor. With a full roster, the black and gold can now concentrate on building up their strength and depth in time for the playoffs. With a high intensity level, the mighty Plague could possibly take a run at their fourth national championship appearance in the last five years. Waterloo is in Halifax, Nova Scotia all this weekend participating in the Lawton's Volleyball Classic at Dalhousie University. This is

Mac drops Athenas in UW Invitational by Fronk Seglenieks Imprint stoff

The Athenas, hosts last weekend of an exhibition tournament, travel to Thunder Bay for a two-gamer against Lakehead. photo by Sharon Little

This past weekend, the Waterloo volleyball Athenas took time out of their OWIAA schedule to host the annual Waterloo Invitational. Six teams participated in this year's event with the Waterloo Roos, a women's city league team made up of many former varsity university players, taking the championship in what was overall a veryeven1ymatched tournam~t. The Athenas lost in the third place game to McMaster after playing some good games in the rest of their matches. In the first game of the six-team tournament last Friday, Waterloo met up with Brock and were victorious in four games. However, the match was still very close with our side squeaking by with scores of 1511,10-15,17-16, and 17-15. The second game saw the battle of the Waterloo teams with the Roos coming out on top of fivegame battle with scores of 15-4, 415,15-10,2-15,and 16-14. The Roos also defeated Brock to come first in Pool A with the Athenas second and Brock third. Pool B had the tough Queen's squad on top with McMaster secondand Guelph third. Thus Guelph and Brock were relegated to the

fifth place game, in a match to decide who could at least come away with something from the weekend. In this confrontation, Guelph came away with thevictoryinfourgames. In the semi-finals, Waterloo met up with the hard-hitting Queen's Golden Gaels in the early morning hours of Saturday. The Athenas; along with me, had trouble starting this morning, dropping the first game 15-9. The second game had Waterloo blocking well, although some missed serves early could have cost them dearly, if the Gaels didn't keep returning the favour. In this match, both teams were frustrated by a referee whose definition of a lift was very strict, although to be fair to him, he was equally hard on both teams. Waterloo was able to frustrate Queen's with some good blocking and won the game 15-7. Queen's came back to take game three, 15-5 and looked to be on the way to winning the match in four, leading in the fourth by 10-4. However, the Athenas whittled away at the lead and allowed the Gaels only one more point while scoring 11 themselves, the game winner on a block by tournament all-star Michelle VanVliet. Unfortunately Waterloo was never really in the deciding match; they fell behind early and started to show some life too late for it to matter. With Queen's up 14-7, Carren Hall served for four straight points, knowing that if she missed the serve the game would be lost. She made the fifth serve but the Gaels won the rally and the game 15-11. In the other semi-final, the experienced Roos easily defeated the McMaster Marauders in 3 games, with scores of 15-7, 15-7, 15-5. The third-place game was set • as the Athenas played against the Marauders. Overall, the match was very even as in only one game did the lead ever surpass five points for either b:iam. In the first game, Waterloo played wen; however so did Mac with the Athenas squeaking by

15-13. The second had Waterloo down 11-6 before coming back to tie the game at 11, but a few mistakes allowed the Marauders to get the points they needed, 15-12. In the pivotal third game, Waterloo was having trouble putting their hits through the Mac blocks, and as a result fell behind and were only able to mount a comeback which was too little too late, game for Mac 15-11. Waterloo was in the next game until the end, matching Mac point for point, however it was not to be for the Athenas fell by a score of 1511. The championship match between the Queen's Golden Gaels and the Waterloo Roos showed that experience will win in the end. This exciting match went the full five games, with both teams showing that they deserved to be there. The scores do not reflect the closeness of the match with the Rooscomingout on top 15-12, 14-16, 15-2, 8-15, and 15-9. The tournament all-stars were Michelle VanVlietfrom theAthenas, Wendy Carmichael from Queen's, Leslie Strickler of McMaster, Leslie Turner from Brock. With the tournamentMVPhonoursgoingtoDana Mendham from Queen's. Overall, coach Dena Deglau said her team was disappointed with their finish as they were only a few points away from going to the finals and only lost by two points to the eventual tournament winners. As for the regular season, the team still has a hope of getting a playoff spot but will have to stop this habit of losing to teams in the fifth game. This weekend; the Athenas travel to Thunder Bay for a twogame weekend series against Lakehead, while their next home game will be next Friday, January 29 against Laurier in the PAC.

Nordic team finishes strong second at Orangeville by Dave Richardson

Gary Pluim(21st}, Trevor Stewart, Rob Milburn, and Scott Vizniowski rounded out Waterloo's contingent.

Imprint sports Raeingconditions were almost ideal last Saturday when the nordic ski team took to the trails at the Orangeville Invitational. Orangeville you say? Wasn't the team supposed to be in Ottawa? Fearing a lack of snow in the National Capital District, race organizers postponed the Nakertok Invitational until this weekend, January 23 and 24. Scrambling to fill a void in the raeing schedule the team had a little excursion to Orangeville for the short 10-kilometre skating technique time trial This was the first opportunity for the team to compete head to head with other universities. Waterloo finished second overallbehinda powerful Queen's team. Guelph and U. of T. were also present. The l()"kIn time trial was held over one of the more painful courses on the 1993 circuit. Numerous indinesandsteeptechnicaldownhills left few areas for skiers to recover. On top of that, race officials shoveled snow laden with pine needles and leaves (which don't exactly provide a lot of glide) onto the trail leaving racers to slog their way through the thick powder. Fast, hard-packed snow contrasted with the slower powder produeing an effect much like that of gliding on a frictionless plane of ice and hitting a patch of dry pavement. Coach Lisa Patterson made a point of this, telling team members to work on gaining momentum at the top of hills in order to carry more speed into adjacentdownhills.

Skiers sometimes exceeded their anaerobic thresholds at the crest of inclines and recovered on the next downhill. Proper warm ups were also a priority as starting out on a cold day with a resting pulse rate will produce a sensation cl&se to death. Patterson decided that this race was to be used as the second of three team selection races. Former Canadian champion and 1992 Olympian Al Pllcher, who is taking some time off from the national team, won the senior men's

l()"kIn race with a time of 28:27. Pilcher's presence made it possible for skiers to compare their times with the national standard. Hey, who cares if he hasn't been doing much training this year. Second and third positions were taken by two fast Queen's skiers. Ron Howden put Waterloo into the top four (third spot for universityskiers)outof41 finishers with a time of 30:02. Other team finishes included Dennis Paradine at sixth place, followed by Ken Macleod who had an excellent race coming

The Warriors, consisting of skip Jamie Sromiley, vice skip Mike McCutcheon, second Dean Palmer, and lead Karl Silyi, had a strong showing, winning three of five games. They defeated Brock 8-1, Guelph 6-2, and Laurier 10-6. In a very close game, the men were beaten by Windsor 5-4, and, in another tight match, lost to Western1()"9. The Athenas, with skip Margaret Corey, vice skip Jodi Kerr, second Karyn Issler; and lead

o

Jennifer Smith, also had a solid weekend, winning all five games. They defeated Brock 14-5, Guelph 11-6, Windsor 10-4, Western 10-8, and Laurier 7-4. Corey earned female athlete of the week honours. Both teams will be competing at the OUAA/OUIAA East! West Cro~ver Bonspiel Friday, January2l and Saturday, JtU.1uary 23 at the Avonlea Club in Toronto. Themen will be facing, from the Eastern division, Trent, Laurentian, Queen's, McMaster, Toronto, and RMC. The women will be up against Toronto, Trent, Laurentian, and Queen's.

Imprint sports On Friday, January 15, the Athena varsity figure skating team travelled to York University for its first invitational competition of 1993. The, Athenas were matched against a tough field of competitors from universities such as Western, Toronto, and Guelph. Despite having only two weeks of training after theChristmasbreak, theteamskated a collective "personal best"; this clinched the overall gold medal for the team. This tremendous finish was much to the surprise of the other teams and is the first team gold for Waterloo in over seven years. The Waterloo skaters finished in the top four in each of the 13 events, with siX first-place finishes. Total points from all these events put Waterloo on top. Placings in the individual events were: Intermediate Singles Shannon Klassen, 1st; Intermediate Pairs - Klassen and Valerie Miller, 2nd; Intermediate Solo Dance·CarolynMoss, 1st; Senior Solo Dance - Tamara Staple and Carolyn Richardson, 1st; Senior"A" Singles - Leslie Neave, 4th; Senior "B" Singles - Kathleen Kaarsberg, 3rd; Variation - Richardson and Michelle Kho, 1st; Senior Solo Dance- Nancy Ford, 4th; Senior Similar Pairs Neave and CarolynChui, 2nd; Short Program-Sharleen Hoar, 1st; Open Ladies - Carolyn Chui, 1st; Pairs Fours-Aliison Ritchie, Neave, Hoar, and Chui, 3rd; Precision - 3rd. Despite the enjoyment and satisfaction felt by the team after this . competition, Waterloo will have to remain disciplined. Intensive training is needed over the next four weeks in preparation for the competition at Queen's on January 30 and the OWIAA finals on February 13 and 14 here in Waterloo at Columbia Icefield.

The University of Waterloo has chosen Margaret Corey, a second-year student from Samia, as female athlete of the week. As skip of the women's curling team, Corey led the Athenas to a 5-0 record in the OWlAA West curling bon spiel last weekend. The Athenas defeated Brock, Guelph, Laurier, Western, and Windsor, each by a substantial margin. Corey recorded a personal shooting percentage of 70 per cent. Her strong leadership is a tremendous asset to theteaDl. ' The Athena curling team will next compete at the Toronto Combined bon spiel on January 29 and 30.

The University of Waterloo has selected Mike Zidar as male athlete of the week. Zidar, a fourth-year science student playing frODl the number-two position, won four of five matches last weekend at the Waterloo Invitational. His only loss came in the fifth game of the match, finally going down to defeat 8-10 against a McGill opponent. Zidar's efforts helped the Warriors captured second place in the tournament and vault them from second to fifth in the OUAA standings. The Warriors travel to Ryerson on January 29 and 30 to compete in the OUAA team championship.

011 Bomber Goober and the Peas

Bombshelter January 15, 1993

by Bernord Keorney Imprint stoff Well, you probably missed the gig. Most people did. Last Friday afternoon, Detroit's kooky country quacks Goober and the Peas were offering to sign notes to get you out of class. That would then entitle you to hang out in the Bomber to quaff Amber Dry,v all the while enjoying the quintet's musical performance. Not a bad deal don't you agree? Since you're probably one of the 16,562 puds who didn't avail of this fabulous deal, you are prostitutetomyaccountoftheaftemoon's show. Well it was fun. There, that's all t'm gonna to tell ya. Per chance that evening you happened upon Phil's Grandson's place only to leave wondering why those freaks in the ten gallon hats were garnishing so much attention from a bevy of beautiful women, had you attended the free nooner, all would have been answered.' Maybe there is such a thing as a funky cowboy. Shltty layout? - Well it's not like we had much to work with. photo by Bernard Kearney

Arc the Herald Angels Sing The Arc Angels wi The Jayhawks and Big Sugar

Lulu's Roadhouse January 15, 1993 by Poul Morris

speciol to Imprint Those of you who are familiar with Lulu's star-studded musical lineup this term would have known about the Arc Angels show last Friday. The as-advertised double bill was really a triple threat revue which consisted of the locally-famous Toronto trio Big Sugar, the fresh soUnding Jayhawks, and the Austin-based supergroup the Arc Angels. Together, the three bands represented a wide range of the popular music spectrum. and delighted the patrons of Lulu's with an evening of diverse musical tastes. Opening the night was Big Sugar who gently introduced the early crowds to their 路Jazz/Blues style which consists of the steady, crystal clear rhythm section of Steve LucasandAl Cross, and the smoothas-silk vocals and Guitar mastery of Gordie Johnson. Performing originals and covers from Bo Diddley, John Hammond Jr., Led Zeppelin, andJimiHendrix ("Hsix were nine"}

this group sounded like a mix between David Wilcox and Muddy Waters. This illustrates how the band's repertoire has expanded to a more blues/ rock based sound compared to the fingerstyle slow Jazz of early Big Sugar with Molly Johnson (no relation to Gordie). The indusion of Big Sugar was a real surprise as this act was not advertised on the original bill. The JayHawks followed promptly to give the steadily increasing population at Lulu's (the place is almost infinite) another lesson on how to enjoy yourself within an atmosphere of live music. Fresh from their previol.ls night's appearance on the David Letterman show, this band produced sounds which were a cross section of REM and Blue Rodeo with traces of Bob Dylan. Their rock! country / folk style was well received by the audienceas their music was not without messages or feelings. This band had exceptional charisma and they really enjoyed playing as evident in their delivery. If the Arc Angels were your t~ason for attending then you were not disappointed! The 11:15 p.m. starting time was only the beginning of almost two hours of bluesinduced rock In' roll that began with "Paradise Cafe".

The band was initially sluggish, but after a few rockin' songs they were back into the groove set by the opening acts. The intensity gradually increased and peaked with "Shape I'm In" and "Living in a Dream" .. This was accompanied with an unbelievable encore, a future Arc Angels hit and the touching "Too many ways to fall" and left no doubt of this band's potential. The band first appeared nationally to Canadians last spring when they were involved with a guitar giveaway on Much Music (actually Much West) and from that point on their first single "Living in a Dream" was to become commonplace among radio stations. The Arc Angels gave Toronto a real treat with a live acoustic telecast of the Q-107 rock report at Yonge and Dundas in Sam the Record Man and their concert at the Phoenix night club was spectacular. However on a lower note, the summer did not finish well for the band as they had to cancel the Bryan Adams "Waking up the Neighbours" entourage across Canada due to drug and alcohol problems of a band member. They have since settled those differences and returned with their unique "Texas connection" to follow in the foot steps of other great bands from Texas like Buddy Holly

and the Crickets, z:z Top, Johnny Winter, Eric Johnson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Actually'the Arc AngelshaveSRV's previous Drummer Chris "Whipper" Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon providing a perfect foundation for the two 23year-old guitarists Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II. Sexton should be familiar to a few people as he has spent his teenage years in the music business and Bramhall is intimately connected to the Vaughan "Family Style" through his father who was a great friend and co-writer of material for the late Stevie Ray. Together, the mild mannered Bramhall and take-charge attitude of Sexton transformed Lulu's into a rock 'n' roll paradise with their unique brand of Texas-Blues rock. Bramhall wore a choker reminiscent of those thatJimi Hendrix used to wear (ie, Isle 9f Wight Festival) and strived to get the most from his guitar in the same manner. With his ability to feel the music and Sexton's dependability the pair form a musical tour de force which was monitered by the growing applause and enthusiam of the crowd with each passing moment. This band has a dynamite debut album and wonderful stage presence, this is definitely a band to be listened to.

.Feaver and Five Fail to Fill Phills be out soon. The largest achievement of the band this night was to get a few audiencemembers to brave the empty dancefloor. The first act of the second night reminds me of an anecdote: I was walking with my friends along a river late at night on a cold snowy night, the moon was full and put a luminous glow over the shimmering trees. We walked and talked until I fell through the ice and my friends had to carry me the three miles home back to the cabin. After a hard night, I had a cold and a high fever. This reminds me of J;Joug Feaver, the aforementioned first act. This is how his set went: long anecdote which has some backward reference to the next song. He ended with a really cool song called "125" about the Canada's recent birthday (which, of course, hit a chord withme),during which he accompanied himself by playing a tape of himself playing drums and bass.

Box Meat Revolution were next and they were fast and loud and good but I'd like to stress, really, really fast. A funky sound came out of the 5 member band with a lead singer who tried to encourage dancefloor activity by wandering around it himself. The audience did get somewhat excited by a song entitled "Funky Pheasant Feather" and a few were enticed to the floor in front of the stage. It is a pity there wern't more people to see these guys as it looked as if they would have really fed off the energy of an energetic crowd. The band went through a few different styles including the keyboardist who played a jazzy interlude during one song. They ended with "Socialized", a song from their demo tape. The final act of the night was Dead Beat Backbone who put a final grungy cap on the two day event And I doubt that Nirvana started this,but why doeseverybassplayer, nowadays, have to play his instru-' ment with his arms fully extended and hop around the stage, lremember the days when bass players

Next Wednesday you have another chance to break out of the line· for the Shelter and see King Cobb Steelie and Chicken Milk live on stage at Phil's for a mere $4, and I can pretty much guarantee that as much as I would like to hope there will be one, a lineup is one thing you won't have to worry about.


by Bernard Kearney Im'Print staff "What is this shit." That's a common reaction when this disc is in the player and I hit play. It's refreshing I say. Refreshing enough to make my top ten of '92. I'm a suckerfor dischord. Ween revel in dischord and I'm a sucker for Ween. I'll admit that this is not

for everyone, and you can be sure it won't be on heavy rotation at Y95, but take a chance, listen through to the end, start over, listen through again and I'm sure you'll begin to appreciate its beauty. There is charming element of unpredictability to Guava, one that constantly challenges your aural sense. Wehavebecomefartoocomplacent in our roles as listeners and brothers Dean and Gene Ween are here to question that sensibility. Like the Beastie Boys, Ween's music is beefy and layered. There is a complication with the appearance of simplicity. An air of nonchalance or lethargy pervades this album yet all the while there remains an atmosphere both energetic and elec-

trically charged. At times you get the feeling that they're making all this up as they go along (and quite frankly maybe they are) but I gueSs that really doesn't matter. What 'does matter is whether or not it works. In the estimation of this humble reviewex: the answer is yes. Some tracks are more accessible than others. Some are downright annoying (this is not necessarily a bad thing). There is grit. There is silk. There is lilt. There is a kind of irreverent playfulness that, in part, makes you stand in awe all thewhile leaving you to wonder how the fuck they coerced the record company into allowing them to release this kind of shit. We can all recognize that there is a bit of shit on every album. The problem with Ween is discerning between the shit and the gold. If pressed to decide, "Mourning Glory" (unfortunately alsothe longest track on the album) stands as a clear favourite in the shit category. "Push th' Little Daisies," with its Jackson's sensibility, "The Stallion Pt. 3" and "Big Jilm" definitely take the gold. An excellent track entitled "Don't Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy)" harks back to Ziggy Stardust days and is certainly a lot more interesting than anything Tin Machine has ever done. The review just wouldn't be complete without rhyming off a few of the more interesting track titles like "Poop Ship Destroyer", "Flies on My Dick.," and "Hey Fat Boy (Asshole)". There my review is now complete. Wait, one more - ''Touch My Tooter."

by Sandy Atwal Im'P,.int staff It's been a while since some loud guitar music has caught my attention. Whenbandslike Metallica can put out one of their worst albums and become more popular than ever, and bands like White Zombie change their sounds completely to sound like Metallica, any~ thing which could remotely be compared to these bands bores the hell out of me. It really does. Therapy? on the other hand are a band which, although they use sledgehammer guitars, they intensify their attack with danceheavy beats and deversamples that free them from the shackles of terms like hardcore or thrash.

By Daniela Lorkovlc Imprint staff by Kenton Augerman special to Imprint I read the very generous package of articles sent to the Imprint from Pure Headquarters located in westemCanada. Itwasimpressive. They seem to know and are supported by many key people in the music industry. They can name drop as friends, American innovator Jerry Harrison (also producer of their album), and Canadian talent, Sarah MacLachlan. Harrison, as stated in one of the articles, even took Jordy Birch to a transvestite Ball. Hmm. Socially and politically correct for the times, too. At this point, I found myself more impressed with their social life than the CD playing in the background. The first song, "Zen", was too "beaty," pulsating without any continuity. You know that feeling when it is physically painful to liSten to something, as your annoyan,ce level is successively increased? I was ecstatic to get to tracks nine

Imprint staff England's insanely hyperbolic music press seems to have totally missed the boat on Th Faith Healers. Rating barely a mention in their homeland, they are nevertheless carving out some of the freshest and most captivating noises heard by a new band in quite some time. Imagine, if you will, My Bloody Valentine's Isn't Anything making it with the Smashing Pumpkins Gish, throw in a dash of the Breeders, and you mighthaveanapproximate recipe for Lido, Th Faith Healers' enthralling newly-released debut. Although none of this seems the least bit calculated or contrived -- or serve the band any measure of justice - these comparisons are particularly apparent on the stunning tracks "Don't Jones Me" and "Love Song". (On the latter, vocalist Roxanne Stephen's attacking strains even recall Drive Like Jehu's Rick Farr). Both of these songs possess initial lulling rhythms and grooves which gently, effortlessly open up and amplify with the sort of feverish grinding climaxes you'd rarely

and ten. Don't laugh at the song titles. When I first got the CD and read'it inside and out, I said to myself, "Love is Cool" and "Swoon to the Moon"??-gOodgod!! Butthesetwo songs are interesting and memorable-and for more reasons than their characteristic titles. The rest of Pureafunalia, even "Blast" and "Blissful Kiss", regard-

less of their constant air play on the new and improved plastic version of CFNY, cannot claim memorable status. The rest of the recording is a bit too idealistic. I think, from having read the articles, high idealism and light hearted expression of it is a goal of the band; however some of the songs overdo what may, (I suppose), be considered good intentions.

expect from such youngsters. The' mesmerising effect- which always seems less fordbly deliberate than purely inspired - displays a band in complete control. Categorising aside, however, Th Faith Healers prove to be anything but a bunch of one-trick-ponies. Such is their ease at moving through changes in pace and style that the middle of Lido's North American release includes two songs ("ReptileSmUe" and ''MoonaIna-Joona") which aren't on the U.K. release but rather made available from the previously Importonly four-track Mr. Litnanski EP. Both are excellent so it's a tremendous bonus; more significantly, their insertion in the midst of the album, (rather than tacked on the end as is the typical practise), illustrate just how potent and diverse ThFaith Healers are that neither the foundation nor the continuity of Lido is in any way distressed. In reality, it might have been too taxing to attach the songs at the end since it's concluding track ("Spin 1!2") is nothing less than a showstopping ten-minute magnum opus, but no matter which way the album's cut or arranged, it's uniformly brilliant. Of those EP tracks, "Reptile Smile" is a great neo-punkadelic rumble that features some simpleyet-scorching axework (courtesy of leader Tom Cullinan) and the ironic "Moona-Ina-Joona" belies it's own

philanthropic verbal allusions, (of Can's "Soon OVer Babaluma" and the Soft Machine's masterful "Moon InJune"}, bybeltingoutala the Babes In Toyland. The Can reference, however, proves to be a valid one since Th Faith Healers lone cover is that of the late German avant-gardists superb "Mother Sky". A dazzling array of simple rhythms, melody, and vocals, it combines with their tremendous instincts to make for one of the album's great highlights. Interesting to say the least, Lido is more than just a ~tdebutalbum. It's the arrival of a major underground force.

In 1991, Ned's Atomic Dustbin released a near-perfect CD entitled God Fodder. Strong album' tracks meshed with the singles "Kill Your Television," "Until You Find Out," "Happy" and "Grey Cell Green," giving rise to the slogan In God Fodder We Trust. God Fodder continues to loom large today and serves as a yardstick by which to measure the Stourbridge quintet's newest disc, Are You Normal? Are Yau Normal? is somewhat of a departure from Gott Fodder in that it is poppier and more melodic. Tempo changes within songs are more subtle and not nearly as violent. Despite the continuing presence of two bassists - Alex and Mat - the record is less bass-heavy and less pounding. God Fodder comparisons aside, Are You Normal? was one of 1992's best releases, fueled by the singles "Not Sleeping Around" and "Intact," which are typical of the CD as a whole. Also characteristic of the

euphonic sung by Jonn and the solid musicianship of Rat (guitar) and Dan (drums). Notable cuts include the best song,"YouDon'tWantToDoThat," and "Walking Through Syrup," which features the catchy, oft-repeated chorus, "So here's the prediction! You get an affliction! You gain an addiction! You grab what you can." "Leg End In His Own Boots" begins innocently enough (reminiscentoEPrimalScream's "Damaged," . actually) but becomes a tale of infidelity and murder. A sample of the lyrics: "1 wish I could.../ Get my fingers down your throat at the same time! That I cut you with a very long, very sharp knife." The song that came across best at the band's Toronto concert last October was "Tantrum," which ends on a blistering crescendo. Ned's Atomic Dustbin return to Toronto January 25, when they'll be performing at the Concert Hall. Before going, be sure to pi~ up a copy of Are You Normal? It'sworth it for the cover art alone.

by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff Although not a new album, the new Curve release Pubic Fruit surprisingly does not reek of the marketingmold whlchhangs over most repackagings. Re-releasingCurve's first three British ep's, (Blindfold, Cherry and Frozen) as well as the extended mix of their big single "Fait Accompli", Pubic Fruit is a pleasant breath of fresh air. Where we should hear the tired efforts of a band that's received too much press and too much hype, Curve manage to provide the listener with a well,produced, danceable wash of guitars punctuated by Toni Halliday's breathy vocals. I paid little if any attention to Curve when they first came out. The Doppleganger album was always around, but I felt no compulsion to pick it up and give it a listen. At the same time there were

Chapterhouses and Blurs and Swervedrivers and Automatic Daffodils vying for my attention and I just decided to fuck the lot. It's a full time job keeping up with the next big thing. Pubic Fruit all sounds the same. The songs are almost indiscernible. At first they weren't, butit all sort of melded into this drum machine in the background with heavy reverb on the throbbing guitar, and Halliday'S vocals show little range. But that's fine. Mostband'sare only

built on one good idea, and Curve have made the best of it. The druggified psychedeUa of it all makes for some very pleasant listening. The single Fait is pretty indicative of the band as a whole. An excellent song, the rest of this album, (although the singles were issued over a year apart) pretty much follows the same formula.

Other notably excellent live bands on the album are Spiritualized, Carter USM, and the lesser known the Family Cat, whose song "Steamroller" is my personal favorite. The music ranges in style from the political folkol Billy Bragg to the bass dominated ugliness of the Breeders (who sound an awful lot like the Pixies minus Black Francis), to the techno tripping of the Orb, to the Cockney lunacy of Flowered Up, to the good natured 1967flashbackofDr.Phibes and The House of Wax Equations, (who are about as good as their name). For better or worse, it is some wild, wacky stuff. It is too, too phenomenal. The disk excellently conveys the spirit of the three day festival. The skies were blue, and the people, walking emulators of their favouriteband, were sun-burned. The disk has no useless crowd interjections, like the "No more rain!" chant on the Woodstock album,~ and no temper tantrums, like Flea slamminghis bass down at Lollapalooza. All the album contains is twenty four songs old and new, by twenty four bands, performing them for all they were worth. The passion and spirit of the festival shines on the disk, where the order of the day was to go and play your brains out on stage, and have the chance to blow all your hottest licks in one collossal rave-up. A final note to make an already excellent disk two inches more amazing. All proceeds from the sale of In a Field of Their Own go to Greenpeace. That's right. Not only are you getting the selfish satisfaction of owning a little piece of Glastonbury, you are helping to save the planet.

Heaven or Crash Vegas Crash Vegas

Friday, January 22,1993 Bombshelter

by Peter Brown Imprint staff The Crash Vegas, led by lead vocalist Michelle McAdorey and lead guitarist Colin Cripps, are hitting the Bombshelter stage tonight (Friday, January 22). . Earlier this week, Imprint spoke with Cripps about changes in the band and its new album coming out this spring. I've heard that there are some line-up changes that have happened. What are they? We replaced our bass player (Jocelyne Lanois) over two years ago with a guy named Darren Watson. So, that's old news. Actually, the last time we played there (UW),itwaswithDarren. That was the end of '90. Then we changed record companies. We're signed in the States now to London Records and we're distributed worldwide on Polygram. This new record,

which is due at the beginning of March, is going to be on Polygram in Canada. And we've got new management -- we're with Bill Graham management. We've been with them for well over two years too. So, it's ironic. We're a Canadian band, obviously, but all of our stuff is U.S.-based. We've basically spent the past year making this record and organizing the release of it with an American record deal, which is a lot different than a Canadian record deal. They (American companies) have a lot more input; they basically like to coordinate things a lot more intensely than our personal experience with doing the first record in Canada. Your record company didn't have a lot to do with the sound of your first record? No, we literally made that record with Malcolm Bum and we handed it in. Literally. I don't think we hardly sent them any demos for that record. Wejustmadetherecord and said, here's our record, and they put it out. The rest kind of happened from there. They certainly did a great job promoting it, and. doing all the other stuff, but as to making the record, it was very much

our own thing. London Records was a lot more involved in the production of this one? Oh ya, this one was .•. every song, they wanted to hear ~ they were very involved, which sometimes is very frustrating and sometimes is very good because ultimately, the signals are very positive. It was just a learning experience to deal with that, instead of the other extreme, which is what we mid on the first record. So, it took a lot longer than, in !!Ome ways, we would have liked, but I hope that the end result is something that we're both happy with. Who was the producer of the new one? John Porter. Is that the kind of situation where the record company appoints a producer oryou guys come up with a producer and they approve it? What happened with that one was, we had a vague idea of who he was from the records he'd done in the '80s. There are a couple of records that Michelle and I really loved, by the Smiths and Billy Bragg. Which Billy Bragg record? . Talking to the Taxman About Poetry. He's done tons of stuff from there. What actually turned me on to him more recently was a record by Circle C, which was one of my favourite records from last year. So, we thought, let's check this guy out and the record company was favourable to that. He lives in L.A. now. So, we went to L.A. and did this record. Then, over the course of the summer, the record company decided that the release date for us in Canada was getting tighter and tighter. And we ended up doing another song which we produced ourselves. It was a cover of a song written by the singer from Soul Asylum. We did that around October and everyone loved it so much that that had to go on the record. When was the original record-

ing? Late spring, 1991. Are there any more recent lineup changes in the band? We've got a guy named

,~------------------

Crawley Flowers and he's like our instrumental guy, filling in on guitar, mandolin, and that sort of stuff. When does your tour start? TheCanadiantourstartsMarch 3 out on the west cOast. We're going to do all of March in Canada. We've got 22 shows from coast to coast. That'll take us up to the first week of April and then we're supposed to go to the States initially for two months, and pending its reaction, that'll get us well into the summer. After that, we'll do Canada again, some summer shows, some festivals, and hopefully get over to Europe this time. On your new album, have you taken a significant departure from your sound on Red Earth? Well, I'm close to it. We're very familiar with certain things that we do amongst ourselves and yet at the same ·time I think we try to push each other to do things that surprise us. I think this record is more indicative of what we're doing as a live band, becausewehadn'tplayed very much live before we did that first record. We were on the road for a year and a half. A lot of the songs, and the development of the songs, came from playing live. I think that was something that we wanted to try and get for the record. So, invariably, things goUouder and got more edge to them - there's much more of an edge to this record than the first one - I think a lot of people will be surprised. We tried to go for things a little more than we had on the first, I think simply out of experience, having gone out and been a live band. Other than that, I can't really say that this album is completely different. I think it's got a vibe to it; there are some things that are a lot different and others things that are an extension of what we did on the first album. Are you planning to stay based in Canada, or, if this album really takes off in the States, can you see yourselves transplanting yourself down there on a more full-time basis? No, I don't think so. I like it here. If it's a question of whether we're proud to be Canadian, I don't understan.d that sort of logic. I'm

really proud to be Canadian and we carry that with us in a certain way, but as a music thing goes, I like to thinkmoreuniversal1y. Ifonemonth you live somewhere else to get an experience out of that or you decide, for this year, I'll go check out this place, and it may happen to be in the States, I don't think that's indicative of your frustrations or need to get out of Canada. Whether success dictates that or not, I don't really think about it, as long as I keep getting a certain inspiration from being here. I think everybody in the band feels that way. We go other places; for example, we spent three months in LA. doing this record and at first we hated it there; we were saying, uggh, LA., let's' just make this record and go home. But after the first month, Michelle and I, we started to discover a lot of things that were completely unknown to us. On drives, we go out to these incredible mountain ranges with beautiful scenery and theocean and meeting amazing people who had nothing to do with our preconceived notion of what LA. was all about. So, all of a sudden, we thought, wow, this could be a really good place to live because it was a du~tenvironmen~notbecause

it was LA. It could have been anywhere. Are there some scenes in the States that you'd like to go to record? Ya, I know there's a good vibe in Woodstock. When we recorded this last song, we worked with an engineer from Woodstock; he was a great guy and he got us excited about going to Woodstock. We've been meeting a lot of people from Minneapolis,from30uIAsylumand the Jayhawks. So, it's like, aU of a sudden, ya, I'd like to go and hang out in Minneapolis and see what that's like. I think that's the great thing about artists, and especially musicians - you can go to certain places and there's a lot of things that are common and a lot of things that you learn. So, to be saying, I've got to stay in Canada because I'm a Canadian, I don't agree. I don't thlnk that anyone needs to have any reservations about going anywhere.

There was some good input as far as that goes, but we were always at odds with him. At odds? Yeah, in a good way. We always harrassed him. Are you on a major tour right now? (Junior)Yeah, we're on a two week Canadian tour right now. We're doing a few·shows with Blue Rodeo. Thenmid-Februarythrough March we'll do an extensive tour of the United States and go down to that music conference (South By Southwest) in Mid March. How has the reception been so far? Really good. Last night we played in Sudbury. 1here were nice people there. We were playing with Blue Rodeo and there was an older audience. And when we played "Let's go Hunt for Grandpa" there were a few grandfathers there giv-

ing us some dirty looks. (J) Some of the grandmas were team' up. I think they recognized a lot of what we were singing. (G) Yep, I think our songs have a mass appeal. (J) I think that should be the title. A quote from Goober, "Our Songs Have A Mass Appeal". (G) Yeah. (J) Exclamation mark. (G) Yeah, but that is one reason we can play with Nick Cave, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, whatever. People who aren't into our music, that style of a garage-y, kind of swampy, psychotic . . . Although I think if we played with anyone like Billy Ray Cyrus, they would just hate it. Because for some reason the "New Country" people who like that kind of stuff, just really dislike us. Do you find yourselves gettin~ pegged or labeled as a novelty act? (G)Yeah sometimes they do. But I think it helps now that we have an album out, because before, they could only remember the live show. (J)Yeah, since the album has come out most national reviews have said" Although you might

The Whirling Dervishes

Trasheteria, Guelph February 24, 1993

by Paul Cocker

Specio' to Imprint From the birth of The Grope Toads, The Rhinos, and The Groove Daddies, Waterloo Region has become a spawning ground for musical talent. Although there are many promising musicians in our midst, only a select few ever actually reach recognition. The Dervishes are an up-and-coming band that look to become.pan of this select few. The band is lyrically and melodically unique. "Ovr music is like a big festering goiter that is left unattended. Every once in a while, you go to check out this huge lump on your neck and see that it's getting bigger and bigger and hairier," Mike, the lead vocalist and resident

madman; comments in an attempt to explain why The Dervishes' music is uncommon. ''We describe our music as goiter-combustive." With all the jokes put aside for now, the band formed three years ago as a three member funk 'n' roll band. The group has progressed since then, however, adding three more members to the lineup. The Dervishes are drummer Jon Bulman-Fleming, saxophonist Ian Ring, keyboardist Chris Giesbrecht, bassistJohn Williams,guitaristJosh Schwartzentr.ube:r, and singer Mike Yantzi. The band has collectively created a quaint assemblage of sounds, such as rock and jazz while keeping their original funk roots. "We're funky, but we don't like being associated with funk bands because we don't like being categorized," Mike says, adding "But we're trying to go for that primal

vibe." The Dervishes have written roughly twenty-five original songs. Songs like "Here and Now", "Too Uptight", and their notorious anthem "Funky Messiah" are examples of the group's hard but spiritual style. "We only do originals, basically because we couldn't agree on any cover songs to explore considering our different tastes in music," John, the band's more reserved bass guitarist testifies. The Dervishes have played at local bars and dubs,indudingPhil's Grandson's Place, Stages, and Pop The Gator, with due success. They are Without a doubt renowned for their relentless instrumental expositions on stage. While the band charms the crowd With their waves of music, singer Mike Yantzi seizes the opportunity to display his frantic vocals and unpaired epileptic strut. It's a sight worth seeing. But the band can soon be enjoyed off stage for they have just finished recording an LP. The recording time was honoured to them after triumphantly winning a band competition called Trash Fest at Guelph's Trasheteria. The band recorded their album in a suburban sludio in Guelph. John Bailey, a sound engineer that has worked for Triumph and has aided in the completion ofGun's N' Roses' song"Get In The Ring," had his hand in recording The Dervishes' LP. The album will hopefully be coming out sometime in March at local record stores. "So many hippies like us, but we're getting heavier and heavier," Mikereflects "sowe'llseehowmuch of us they'll put up with until they say 'Hey, man, this isn't about love and granola anymore. This is getting scary." The Dervishes can be seen opening up for The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir at the Trasheteria in Guelph on February 24.

with some pretty major acts. Has that been a result of the album or merely on the reputation of Goober and the Peas? Most of those shows we had were before the record came out. Like the Bob Dylan thing. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, that was our second show ever. How'd you score a gig like that so quickly? (J) Well, we did our first show at a bar and the guy who did sound there worked at a bigger place doing sound and said he loved our band. So he said "Hey, do you guys want to open for the Red Hot Chili Peppers tomorrow night? Every band in town would die to do this show, but I want you guys to do it." Fine, so we did. There was like 1200 people there or something. For our second show ever, it was pretty interesting. So it went downhill from therebecauseat thenext show, there was only fifty, so we had to start building. So we're back to that about now.

Because of the country motif, do you ever ~counter a backlash in publicity? (J)Yeah, everyone says that we're either parodying or paying homage to country. I thinkbasically we really like Hank Williams Sr. He was the main reason we started dressing like this. 'cause didn't want to start dressing like every other band. So, we wanted to do this to add to the entertainment side of it. We just had fun with it,but we're not really making fun of it. If we were really going to really make fun of anything country we would want to rip on the new country that/' just sucks... Like Billy Ray Cyrus? (G &}) Right. (J) Which we don't even, obviously, take time to do. So we're not really... (G) I just want to say that Billy Ray Cyrus is a fox. He is a fox. With that Hodc:ey haircut head of his•.. Yeah, exactly.

Pete1s Eats: Open 24 Hours Gas Food Lodging Directed by Allison Anders

by Jennifer 拢pps Imprint

staff

There seem to be more and more stories like One Day at a Time, Mermaids, and This is My Life; stories about a single mother raising two daughters. So far, this rich ore remains unexplored, as few filmmakers are brave enough to delve into the bond/gulf between mothers and daughters, or the complexities of sisterhood. In Gas Food Lodging, Allison Anders almost gets it right. Anders transformed Richard Peck's novel, Don't Look and It Won't Hurt, into a screenplay that drew on her own adolescence as well as her single parent status. Like Alice in

Alice Doesn't Live Here' Anymore, overworked Nora (Brooke Adams) dependsona waitressingjob to keep her family afloat. She subsists in a trailer with her children. lone Syke is Trudi, a fractious teenager who often misses school to rendez-vous with the male population ofLarimie, New Mexico; Fairuza Balk plays Shade, her younger, barely pubescent sibling. Unlike Trudi, Shade gets along with her mom, and is polite and sensitive. She daydreams

at the local Spanish cinema, marvelling over the glamourous foreign adventures of black-and-white siren Elvia Rivero (Nina Belanger). Gas Food Lodging is a promising debutfor Anders, whose lurid background-jails, foster homes, mental wards, and teen pregnancy-has' helped her focus on the flip-side. As the title indicates, these characters have more basic concerns thanexistential angst. There's a world of men out there--each of the heroines has to contend with their feelings over at least three guys during the film. There are growing pains all around: for Shade, learning about parties, racism, and other people's mothers; for Trudi, teetering on the edge of an identity defined by the male gaze; and for Nora, accepting her own limitations as a parent. The camera captures a blend of eccentricities and mundanities. Nora sits on the toilet and yells for tampons. She has nothing to eat in the house except cold pizza. Meanwhile, several characters boast colourful names: Shade, Dank, Hamlet,Javier, Darius. The latter, Shade's androgynous friend (portrayed by Skye'S brother, Donovan Leitch), fetishizes Olivia Newton-John, forges David Bowie's autograph, and strings Christmas tree lights over his bottom bunk. Dank (Robert

This is life, the one you live, so why not have a ball!

Knepper), Trudi's knight-in-shining-armour, collects rocks for a living, and he's always dropping tubes of phosphorescence on the ground. Anders' episodic script allows details to come and go unostentatiously, and wounds are left without salve. It is refreshing to see a mother who doesn't know best-but doesn't know worst, either. Adams' believable, harried Nora can only scream, when it comes to Trudi; with the

docile Shade, she has nothing to say at all. She has problems of her own, from a married man (ChrlsMulkey), to her children's absentee father (James Brolin). Shade's attempts to fix her mother up are charming, but mercifully, unsuccessful. Balk is so watchable that the movie is almost over before you reaUze how natural she has been. She is saddled with hollow voiceovers that don't belong in this picture, but in-between the florid nar-

ration, she carries the lead role with panache. Contrariwise, Skye has presence but not much credibility as the victimized miscreant. Anders has failed to paint complete portraits of the two sisters; they are dose to being mere types. Parts of the film are marred by a disingenuos trendiness. All those vistas of the open road, all that dayg10 rock in the cave where Trudi and Dank make love. We're meant to be seeing, at last, the ultimate truth about women's experiences, but Gas Food Lodging has a few extraneous ingredients in its slice of life. When these characters start talking about sex and so on, they lose us. Nonetheless, much of this picture is amusing, engaging, and valuable. A conscious effort was made to hire female crew ,members and this likely contributed to the tone. These characters are not swept off their feet; they have to wipe the slugs off their faces in the morning (to steal a quote from My Own Private Idaho). Each of them is given the benefit of personhood-they take initiatives, and readily. They are in charge of what they are doing, whether it works out as expected or not.

in the manufacture of consent. Anyone who has read any of his books, though, shouldn't find this message a surprise. What is surprising is the delightfully creative way in which the producers _ have used the video footage and audio recordings to present his message on the big screen, which makes it all the more convincing and powerful. For students of the English language, the experience of listening to Chomsky orate is mesmerizing, as he is one of the few people remaining on the planet who possesses the ability to speak in complete, gramaticallycorrect sentences (though he doesn't always utilize it).
