OUSA conference "success" by Jeff Warner Imprint s t a f f

Last weekend Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA) delegates from six different universities met at Wilfrid Laurier and Waterloo t o discuss their policies. Approximately thirty students attended the two-day conference,and heard speakers such as Peter Georgefrom the Council of Ontario Universities (COU), Lyn McLeod, leader of the Ontario Liberal party. ElizabethWitmer, the MPP for Waterloo North, and Daulton McGuinty, MPP for Ottawa South. The main purpose of the weekend, according t o Catherine Coleman, president of the U W Federation of Students, was t o "bring more students into the loop," and let student leaders know what issues OUSA faces. Sharon Flood, vp-university affairs, agreed that the conference was "more for assembly members" than for producing concrete results. "Everyone thought it went extremely well," Flood noted, though there was minimal attendance from U W o r W L U students. Neither the Feds nor OUSA advertised the conference, and they did not expect students to be interested, according t o Flood. Quickly passing OUSA's constitution with one minor change suggested by the U W delegation, attendees listened t o several speeches and debated some of OUSA's more controversial policies. Concerns about OUSA's stance on student fees were a major issue. "In the Public Interest," OUSA's position paper released last October, stated that OUSA believed in both raising tuition and eliminating ancillary fees. Both of these policieswere criticized by former U W president Dave Martin and Deanne Fischer. Martin felt OUSA should acknowledgethat "ancillary fees have a place at universities," while Fischer blasted OUSA for letting "the government off the hook" on funding issues.

Governmental representatives at the conference were highly supportive of OUSA, however, including its "realistic" stances on ancillary fees and tuition. McGuinty praised the assembly for comingto discussions "with something t o offer," and Witmer quoted at length tracts from the Ontario Progressive Conservatives' "Blueprint for Learning in Ontario," which matched OUSA's policies. "It's news t o me," Coleman commented when asked about the similarity between OUSA and PC ideas for post-secondary education. Both Coleman and Flood were pleased with the amount of attention the government paid t o OUSAatthe conference. While unable t o get an NDP speaker, both Liberals and ProgressiveConservativesattended, and

the COU associated itself with OUSA's proposals. "The only reason [the] C O U is talking t o students is because of OUSA," claimed Coleman, but despite all the positivegovernmentfeedback, "you have t o remember that [the encouragement and praise] are just words." N o new policies were developed at the conference; "policy sessions" were more of forum for delegates t o question other delegates about their opinion on OUSA polices. "[I] wasn't holing my breath for any new policy direction," Coleman said, adding that "it's very difficult t o formulate policy when you've got thirty people sitting around the table and many of them are new [to OUSA and its policies]."

Students interested in "obscene" sexual literature are no longer able t o access newsgroups like a l t sex.bestiality on UW's Internet system. Five newsgroups that were deemed t o be obscene were banned this week from the University of Waterloo's Internet computer system. Dr. Jim Kalbfleisch, vice-president Academic and Provost banned alt. sex.bestiality,,, storiesd, and aktasteless on Tuesday following recommendations by UW's Ethics Committee. Kalbfleisch has not seen any of the material himself but says he is "relying on the Ethics committee and legal advice t o make decisions." The committee, with legal counsel, looked at some newsgroups and decided that the five groups contained material that was contrary t o the criminal code's obscenity laws, said Kalbfleisch. The university could face legal problems if it continued the newsgroups, said Kalbfleisch. In February 1993. obscenity laws were upheldby the Supremecourtof Canada as being a justifiable restriction on freedom of expression. Examples of material that have been distributed on the sex newsgroups include a sexually explicit story about intercourse between a 12-year-oldgirl and a middle-aged man, and incest between two young siblings. The names of the newsgroups, such as alt. sex.bestiality are explanatory of their contents, said Kalbfleisch. Complaints about the newsgroups, primarily from the U W Women's Centre, were brought t o the attention of U W president JamesDowney lastfall. O n Tuesday. Downey issueda memo statinghis decisionon whatto do about the newsgroups. From now on the policy wig be that complaints concerning obscene material in newsgroups will be referred t o the Ethics committee. The committee, with the help of legal counsel, then makes recommendations t o Kalbfleisch, the vice-president academic and provost. Kalbfleisch then makes a decision on the newsgroups based on the recommendations. Downey stated that he was "mindful of concerns about the principles of free speech and expressionin an academic environment." He goes on t o say that universities are not above the law and that6'freespeech is subject t o limitations that are deemed t o be reasonable in a free and democratic society." Request t o reinstate newsgroups must also go through the committee. Any member of the university community requiring access to a restricted newsgroup for academic purposes can make application t o the vicepresident, academic and provost.

u of w student “humiliated” at U Of T by Kierm Green Implint sta# f Min Yang ever sets foot on the University of Toronto I Scarborough campus again, he will be charged with trespassing. That’s what the University of Waterloo Ph.D. chemistry student was told by a Scarborough campus security officer when he attempted to visit a friend there last week. On Saturday January 29, Min Yang drove to the Scarborough campus to visit a friend in residence there. Having become lost, Yang was about to seek out a pay phone to contact his friend when he was pulled over by a campus security police cruiser. The officer took Yang’s driver’s licens’e and returned to his cruiser. Ten minutes later, Yang was presented with a warning ticket and a stern order never to come on the campus again. The police cruiser then escorted Yang off the campus premises. Yang was forced to contact his friend from a nearby gas station and arrange to meet off the campus. “As a proud UW student, I found that the incident was a total humiliation,” protests Yang. The official police report filed by the officer, according to Staff Sergeant McGhee of the Scarborough Campus Security force, states that Yang was pulled over for driving on a pedestrian walkway. Yang, however, claims that there were cars parked on the road in question, as well as fresh tire tracks in the snow on the road. No signs were visible, says Yang,

indicating that the road was for pedestrian use only. The report also claims that the officer questioned Yang as to his business on the campus. Min Yang maintains a different story. In Yang’s version, the officer approached the car and demanded to see his license. Yang says he smiled and tried to be cooperative with the officer, but when he tried to ask a question, the officer merely grabbed the license and walked back to his cruiser. He returned with a ticket and a warning, but no questions were asked and no explanations were given. Under the terms of the Occupier’s AC& the owner of a property may legally remove any persons from that property. The owner may atso delegate the right of removal to another party, such as the security force. But as far as Yang knows, he has done nothing which would justify his removal from the campus. “My record is clean,” Yang asserts, “I don’t think I deserve the treatment that I received from the security officer.” The officer involved was not available forcomment by press time, but Staff Sergeant McGhee stated that he would be looking into the incident. Min Yang is currently considering filing a complaint, charging police harassment by the Scarborough Campus Security. “I am really disappointed with the policing service available at U of T,” says Yang, “It was a very bad experience visiting U of T and it was my first visit”

Safety Dance by Todd special


he Personal Safety Commit tee is currently sponsoring Personal Safety Audits through the Ofice of Student Affairs. The Safety Audits project is intended to identify and address the concerns of personal safety on campus. Currently, there is a lack of complete knowledge of the safety on the University of Waterloo campus. The locations of and the seriousness of safety hazards are not fully known. The hazards may or may not be obvious, and could include a lack of lighting, the inability to see around a corner, the lack of accessibility of certain buildings+ orthe lackof emergency response devices (telephones and help lines, etc.) in secluded areas. Hazards could be anything which directly threatens a person’s safety (such as potholes affecting cyclists, etc.), or they might exist in a privation (such as the lack of a well tit path, etc.) and therefore resulting in a potentially unsafe condition. Safety audits are required in order to establish where these safety concerns are and how serious a

alks within the UW Ancilliary Fund Committee (AFC) are still on hold while the committee awaits the opinion of students on the issue. Federation president Catherine Coleman has indicated that a survey regarding the issue will be distributed to all students within the next month. Co-op students will receive the survey by mail. The






mine which services students will be willing to pay for. The survey will also ask whether these services will be a “user-pay” (pay-as-you-go) or an *‘allpay” format, where all students bear thk burden of the cost. The surveys are likely to receive

more response than the forums that were held this week on the ancilliary fee issue: very few students attended. Coleman suggested that the survey would be a better alternative to the referendum proposed in a petition by WPIRG that has been circulating for several weeks. The wording on the ballot of such a referendum would be too difficult to compose and would likely sound “unduly defensive,” said Coleman. The advisory committee was established to resolve how to cover the costs of non-academic student services, such as safety, athletics and counselling services. With severe cuts in government tinder funds, the need to charge extra f&s has begun to seem inevitable, believes Coleman.

hazard they may be. Safety Audits have been scheduled for the evenings ofTuesday February l5&and Wednesday March 9*, between 5:OOpm and 7:OOpm. Volunteers are needed to help on these evenings, and they will be trained and divided up into audit teams. These teams will be assigned a building, a part of a building or an area on campus to assess. The teams will be given assessment forms which are designed to help them evaluate the safety of the area. This information will then be compiled and analyzed. The Personal Safety Committee, with cooperation from its various member departments, will then address those concerns. If you feel unsafe on campus at night or feel that there is a specific problem related to personal safety, this is an opportunity for you to give your comments, opinion and advice. The audits will only take about two hours of your time, and refreshments will be provided for those who come out and volunteer. Plan to attend!

UW deals with sexual harassment by Tasha

Ancillary fees await student input

Felkai Imprint





exual harassment is an issue of growing concern in society, and on the university campus. This has led to the availability of additional services offered to cater to a growing need for support in this area. “Issues of sexual harassment are very important these days... they aregetting tots ofattention and rightly so,” expressed sexual harassment counsellor for students Linda Keller, who is part of counselling services and in charge of sexual harassment cases. Keller went on to say that “sexual harassment is probably going on more than w4hear about.” The major problem presently being addressed is the lack of education about sexual harassment. Many people are not aware that they are harassing someone, and similarly many are not aware that they are being harassed. Traditionally sexual harassment can be defined as any unwanted act of a sexual nature, but now harassment seems to also include subjecting someone to a hostite environment. An example of a hostile environment would be a male professor


only calling on males in a class, and belittling females when they did get the opportunity to respond in discussion. Other examples of sexual harassment include ‘leering’, being persistently asked on dates, being the target of unwelcome or derogatory comments, and beingfollowed around. “Many are behaving the way people have for years and think that it is normal andacceptable,“explained Judy Van Evra, a Gender Relations Advisor and professor at St. Jerome’s College. St. ferome’s College is the only college at the University of Waterloo that offers a special sexual harassment policy. The remaining church colleges adopt the University’s policy. Going to counsellors is not the only action to take after harassment, stressed both Keller and Van Evra. The ombudsperson, Health and Safety, or a trustworthy person can all be supportive. In addition, they said that it is often helpful to contact the harasser directly, either face to face or through a letter. “There is justice to be served on both side... [harassment] can be experienced by any combination of genders,” explained Van Evra, but Keller added that women will often experience an extra element of fear.

NAC president comes to UW by Niche











unera Thobani, President of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women will speak at the U of W this Tuesday. * When Thobani took over the presidency of the committee (NAC), Canada’s largest feminist lobby group, she was being denounced as an “illegal immigrant.” It was claimed that a woman who had only been in Canada for four years could not properly represent the interests of Canadian women. A large controversy ensued, and some women even left the organization. NAC has since grown more political and determined to counter racism and other prejudicial opinions. Representing over 550 women’s organisations from trade unions to churches, the NAC’s membership includes over three million women in Canada, all endorsing the goals of the women’s movement. Thobani has risen to prominence quickly, especially since her involvement in the opening of the South Asian Women’s Group in Vancouver. As a member of the India Mahila Association she also helped organise the Sunera movement against the opening of sex selection clinics in British Columbia. As part of the Immigrant Women and Racism Committee at the Vancouver Status of Women’s Organization, Thobani was the main organizing force for “Tapestry,” a celebration by and for Women of Colour. She continues to volunteer as a member of the Coordinating Collective in Vancouver. In 1991, Sunera Thobani was elected to NAC’s executive board, where she succeeded Judy Rebick, her-

self a former president of NAC. Rebick and the South Asian community fully supported Thobani’s candidacy even though some women were uncomfortable with an immigrant woman being their supreme representative. Currently, eleven of NAC’s executive board members are Women of Colour. Thobani estimates that in

to UW this Tuesday.

Ontario and in British Columbia, one third of the member groups represent mainly non-white women. One of Thobani’s goals as president is to show that NAC’s policy of racial equality is a priority. When the federal government spent $ IO million on a national inquiry into anti-female violence, the study was conducted by a high-profile main stream feminist. After many women of colour confronted the Canadian Panel

on Violence about the lack of racial inclusiveness, cooperation was achieved. Thobani has worked to promote racial inclusiveness on many levels. “Infertility, for example, is not just a problem for white career women. What about South Asian farm workers in British Columbia, who are exposed to environmental hazards without access to treatment!” says Thobani. She has also spoken and written on issues of violence against women, racism and multiculturalism, Women of Colour and the feminist movement, colonialism and nationalism. She has presented papers at the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women, the American Anthropological Asisociation, and the Western Social Sciences Association. For the future, she predicts that women’s health care will become one of NAC’s key concerns. She also hopes that mainstream feminists will begin to feel less threatened by the new emphasis on race and class analysis in the women’s movement Canada’s political scene may finally be shifting with the aid of Sunera Thobani. Ms. Thobani will be speaking at U of W on Tuesday, February 8, in the Engineering Lecture Hall, Room 101, 7pm. Admission will be free. Donations for the National Action Committee will be accepted at the door. The event is being sponsored by the Women’s Studies Department, the Office of Academic and Provost, the OFfice of Student Affairs, WPIRG, the Environmental Studies Department, the Women’s Issues Commikee, and the Gender Issues Board.

ue to the increasing concern over the availability of porno graphic material over the internet newsgroups, UW president James Downey has released a memo . stating the university’s position on the matter. The following is a partial text of his memo. Last fall I became aware that certain newsgroups on the Internet carried material which was almost certainly obscene and therefore contrary to the Criminal Code. Advice from the University solicitor was unequivocal: under the Criminal Code it is an offence for anyone to publish or distribute obscene material, and the University is running a risk of prosecution if

it knowingly receives and distributes Obscene material. In these circumstances I felt the University had to act to protect itself. I am aware, of course, that this is a sensitive area: there is no precise and agreed-on measurement of where on the scale of human taste pornography begins. So before taking any action I wished to assure myself that the course we might choose to follow was both responsible and defensible. Following consultations with Matt Erickson, Co-ordinator of Ethical Behaviour and Human Rights, and the Ethics Committee, which has responsibilityand experience in handling complaints about computer pornography, I am now authorizing implementation of the following process:

Complaints concerning newsgroups which contain material considered to be obscene are to be referred to the Ethics Committee. The Ethics Committee, with advice from legal counsel as appropriate, witl make a recommendation to the Vice-President, Academic & Provost for the removal of any newsgroups it judges to be carrying obscene materlial. Requests to have a restricted newsgroup reinstated would also be handled by reference to the Ethics Committee. Any member of the University community requiring access to a restricted newsgroup for academic purposes can make application to the Vice-President, Academic & Provost. This approach is, I believe, defensible because a university’s practices cannot be contrary to the law. It is consistent with recommendations put forward in the Report of the Advisory Committee on Network News (May 30, l99l), refining them to address the circumstances of illegal material not contemplated in that report. In February of last year, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the obscenity provisions of the Criminal Code as being a justifiable restriction on freedom of expression in order to protect, in particular, women and children from the harm of violent, degrading, and dehumanizing pornography.

on the Chiapas

A brief by Tasha



Lackman stafi

panel discussion titled The Unreported Dirty Wur in Chiapas packed a room last Friday evening at the Waterloo Adult Recreation Centre. Resistance in Chiapas not new A major theme of the discussion was that the problems in Chiapas, Mexico, are not new. Chiapas, in the south of Mexico, has a very high population of indigenous people. It has always been extremely poor and has always endured extreme oppression. The resistance to this is not new either. “The majority of the population is fighting non-violently and has been for years,” explained Dr. Roland0 Ruiz Cepeda, a native Mexican who has spent time in the state of Chiapas working as a doctor and trying to get appropriate medical supplies for his work to reduce the outrageous mortality mte in Chiapas. A statistical example that Cepeda gave was that 650 per IO0 000 women in Chiapas die of pregnancy related diseases every year, whereas a mere 6 per IO0 000 die of the same illnesses in Canada. Cepeda accompanied his talk with slides that portrayed the sickness and poor quality of life the indigenous people of Chiapas. The alleged tyranny in Mexico has only come to the public eye as of january I, when the Zapatista Liberation Army took violent action. Violence was the only way for them to get the attention they deserved, according to the panellists. Violence however, is probably a


She supported this comment with various examples of economic, political and social corruption. In 1989, the top IO per cent of the population controlled 38 per cent of the income. In fact, Wilmot continued that a mere 37 Mexican families control a quater of the population. She also said that minimum wage is only I5 pesos (about $6) a day, but most are

lucky to receive half of that, if they have jobs at all. The formal unemployment rate is 25 per cent. This means that 50 per cent of Mexicans live in poverty. Those statistics all seem much worse when you know that the number of Mexican billionaires has increased from one to I3 since 1989, when Carlos Salinas de Gortari came into power, explained Wilmot. Salinas’s victory was an electoral

of crime fraud, according to Wilmot, who said that at 4 I per cent of the voting booths there was physical pressure to vote for Salinas. After the victory there was extensive non-violent protesting all over Mexico, she accounted. For years, there have been weekly hunger strikes in Mexico to protest various injustices. These are rarely reported in the international news because of the non-violent nature of the protest. With the up coming Mexican elections, it is important for the international community to watch Mexico closely, because it is responsible for making sure that the fraudulent elections do not continue, expressed Wilmot. A first hand account “ T h e Zapatistas don’t want to be labelled as guerillas, terrorists, or bandits... but the [Mexican] government is trying very hard to label them as that,” related Gordon Burrill, a guest at the panel discussion who had not planned to speak, but who was in San Cristobal de las Casas onjanuary I, when the revolts broke out and the Zapatistas seized the city. Burrill continued that there was widespread support for what they are trying to do, and that there was not much apprehension in San Cristobal


until I2 hours after the Zapatistas had left, and the army came in. “In Mexico, the people did not fear the rebels, they feared the military,” said Burrill. Human rights violations The violation of human rights is probably a major cause for this uprising. More than anything, the indigenous people of Chiapas want to raise the consciousness of the world about the fact that they lack the most fundamental things in life: food, water, health and freedom. Cepeda illustrated that it is common for women to walk shoeless for several hours to fetch water that often is not even potable. Since the revolts began, the human rights of many Mexicans continue to be abused. A few examples that another panelist Miguel Barrientosgave include the fact that peace and human right caravans have been stopped by the Mexican army, Red Cross first aid units have been denied access TV its destination and the food supplied by Mexico’s Ministry of Defense is not adequate. In addition, he said that “most [government] prisoners are isolated and have been submitted to torture.” He also added “The [Mexican] government has tried to come to some intermediary solutions, but is not addressing the fundamental problem.” ‘When they [the indigenous people of Chiapas] say that they are dying, that their children are dying of hunger, they are right. This is not figurative talk,” explained Cepeda. The panel was sponsored by the Global Community Centre, the Latin American Support Group and the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group.

poor method of explaining the Zapatista’s revolts. Eric Karenhaste Gabriel, a Mohawk, and panellist who addressed native rights, explained that many of the Zapatistas do not even have real weapons, and are using fake guns made of wood. “With these fake riffles they have done more harm to Mexico’s political system than with real guns and real bullets,” added Cepeda. Mexico’s fragile reputation It is very important for Mexico to keep its reputation as a stable democracy due to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). If Mexico is known for human rights violations and a fraudulent government there may be problems with the deal, conveyed Sheila Wilmot, a community worker Oh Mexico,. from Guelph who recently returned from Mexico. The international and national press has been told formally by the Mexican government to use government information as a primary source of information, and to refer to the Zapatistas as a secondary source, if at all, related Miguel Barrientos. The democracy of Mexico is a cynical joke, expressed Wilmot, referring to a Mexican journalist’s remark

ack in the glorious eighties, then prime minister Pierre Trudeau, responding to accusations of his own sexual appetites, mentioned that “the state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation,” or something along those lines. Similarly, after reading of UW’s recent decision to ban certain sex-oriented newsgroups from officially entering UW’s computer system, many readers of the uw.geneml newsgroups exclaimed: “the administration has no place in the crotches ofstudents,” I’m paraphrasing of course. Yes, just weeks after banning altfan.kat-la-homolka from campus, our lofty administration has now decreed that sex and pornography should also be shuffled off campus. The only problem is, what they are attempting to do is impossible. While the universityfeels it must not be a conduit for the often obscene and pedophilic news/ stories, they are wrong to presume that they can easily stop students from accessing such information. Simply put, all that this week’s newsgroup censorship accomplishes is: I) make the information slightly harder to retrieve, and 2) makes the u&krsity appear to be doing something about the pornography running throughout its computer system. Considering point one; students now have to search outside the university for

access to these newsgroups, which they are most likely to do through university computers, thus making the university still a part of the process. Therefore, the university cannot help but be a conduit for these newsgroups unless they completely emasculate Uw’s entire Internet connection, which is, of course, out of the question. Point two, however, is where the university really runs into problems. While they seem to be doing the right thing by disconnecting the obvious links to these

newsgroups, thus freeing themselves of any negligence, they are actually falling into a role contrary to their primary interests. The notion of free speech in a university is one that is very dear to many academics, which thus explains why tenure is so important to them: And whiie the pornog raphy which permeates these banned newsgroups does not legally fail under the concept of free expression, any university which takes on the role of censor is one

which violates its own priciples. By adopting the role of the state, the censoring


is moving into danger-

ous territory. How far can the university go in enforcing its censorship? What should be censored! How will the university be regulated in its censorship? By banning the altsex newsgroups, UW has‘set itself a dangerous precedent. Not 6’nly does it show the administration’s para. noia over possibly being maybe a little bit liable for illegal materials it can’t really help but provide the medium for, but it also show how out of touch they are with the reality of Internet and its workings. People are going to read and they are going to download graphics of women being tortured, and making a token move towards censoring this information does little to keep people from thier cravings. Perhaps the university should educate people and then allow them to make their own decisions, instead of trying vainly to control what they think

What’s happening at WLU!? A question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately is “what the hell is a university administration’s real mandate anyway -particularly WLU’s?” This question has been of particular concern lately with the possible non-renewal of a respected and Mlued Laurier professor’s contract. This professor is the widely known Dr. Lev Gonick. During’my three and a half years at Wilfrid Laurier University, as both a full and part-time undergraduate student, I have spoken with many faculty and students about their impression of the WLU bureaucracy. The common theme of ,all of these discussions has been a COMPLETEAMAZEMENTat howsuchasmall, close knit, personable institution can maintain such a heavy, thick pile of administrative ‘guck.’ Guck which constantly oozes (and sometimes rushes) its way through the ofices and hallways and classrooms of this fine institution. I’ve even encountered it in many of my colleagues homes, it’s really quite pervasive. By Guck I mean red tape, politics, self-interest, conflict, and inordinately severe, irrelevant policy with often no tempering in compassion. Now don’t get me wrong. Laurier’s not all bad. God

knows they let ME in there after a heartful, though grudgingly prepared, appeal to the admissions committee (It will delight many of you to know that my former institution of

study was Western. I could have returned there, with their blessing, and coincidentally with their invitation, any time I wanted. At Laurier I had to use a can opener). Furthermore, I have met some of the most outstanding individuals ever encountered by me in my life, within WLU’s walls. A prime elfample of one of these “outstanding individuals” is Dr. Lev Gonick, known by his students as simply ‘Lev’. Allow me to elaborate (while

I digress): I have been going to University, on and off, since 1987. Throughout my young life I have lived in 9 different cities, visited I8 different countries, attended

I I different




universities, and have had more jobs than I care to admit (no I’m not incompetent, just trying to make a buck!). i currently sit on three boards of directors, and am involved in a myriad of different non-governmental organization initiatives. In all my experiences I have never studied under such a sincere, caring, dedicated individual as Dr. Gonick. Let me tell you something - this guy’s got ‘vision’ and he’s got a plan and the ways and means to see it through, and Laurier has been a primary beneficiary of this pragmatic individual’s exemplary reputation and international respect. So naturally some of the political science department professors want to get rid of him (they can’t handle this guy) while the young and burgeoning Development and International Studies (DIS) department is ‘freaking out’ over the prospect of his loss - so, too, are many of his students. Now please don’t misunderstand me, Lev Gonick is a bloody hard Prof. He’s got two of Poli Sci’s scariest weeder courses, with perhaps the biggest work-loads known to any half courses in history. I’m quite thankful for not having to take his Stat’scourse - I’m in DIS and Economics (phew!). But I t&ok political science 23 I & 232 and am currently in 3 19, and while I’ve had my share of C’s and F’s (I don’t get D’s) my DIS major’s average is currently pushing 80 per cent. I received my first A in university in Dr. Gonick’s 23 I in December i 993. I worked my ass off for it - but I was inspired by this guy. Since then I’ve never looked back. Sure Lev get’s plenty of complaints about his work loads, but how many students can say they ‘liked’ their mandatory stats course, no matter what the discipline (I met one girl who did in 1989 - I don’t talk to her anymore). The fact is, every department has its ‘weeder’ cou t-ses. and if you can’t cut-it put-up & shut-up - or

transferred. Here now lies my cathartic release of said ‘energy’...and what I began saying eleven paragraphs ago... Are not the two most prevailing mandates of any university’s administration to accommodate and maintain a commitment to (l)their academic faculty’s research and ideas, and (2) to the students whom these pedagogues and these ideas are here to serve? Is not the whole purpose of higher education to ‘break through’ conventional thought and social, political, and cultural barriers imposed upon us outside these hollowed walls so that we may ultimately create the advancement of our society? I don’t think I’ll find anyone around here to disagree with the above comment, except from those who are just here to get a passport to a healthy salary (which is fair enough, these are not easy times). So how about a little more than lip service to these ideals people - you know who you are. It is our artists, our musicians, our faiths, and our intellectuals who guide us as we move through our history. just as Dr. Gonick has taught many of his student’s - few things in this world are static, change is constant and inevita-




Right now I am, however,

ecstacy of free thought? If Lev Gonick leaves WLU in July 1994 I suspect we won’t see it around WLU any time soon. We need our creative thinkers to illicit and present new ideas. We need these ideas to provide us with direction, and to provide some shelter from the many storms brewing in these troubled times. We need individuals like Dr. Gonick. We also need to be mindful of the fact that the choices we make today unquestionably affect US tomorrow-

Don’t bet on it Atheist To the editor: Craig Nickerson’s Jan, 28 column on “Pascal’s wager”, his valid rejection of the wager and subsequent defense of the need for morals, begs the question of what is really “atheism”. Take for instance his belief(!) in the necessity of having “consideration for others” in order to have a “fulfilling life”. Does this not sound suspiciously like the second Great Commandment of Jesus? Is Craig masquerading as a secret agent of the “enemy”! No doubt he also believes ingoodness, mercy, justice, tolerance, beauty, truth, compassion, forgiveness, kindness, love, hard work and sacrifice. A person who subscribes to these qualities, embodies them, And “embodiment” is merely a secular term for the theological one of “incarnation’*. Similarly, our street term for an ideal situation in which everyone gets along, which seems to hide under the surface of Craig’s thinking, is translateable into the Biblical term of the “Kingdom of God”. It’s entirely possible that if Jesus were living in our times and happened to meet Craig somewhere around the campus, He might tefl him, “You are not too far away from it.” I may be wrong, but it seems to me that, judging from the present state of theological criticism, the term “atheism” is no longer intellectually viable and should be thrown out along with Pascal’s wager, ipso facto. john


Christian Clifton reresponds To the editor: Dear Mr. (Ken) Craig: Silly as it may be to continue this, I’ve never been a good one for not getting the last word. Here are some responses to your responses (“Christian Craig responds (again),” Letters, Jan. 28, 1994). A. On labels: I wouldn’t call you “blasphemous” or “macho” by any means. “Politically correct” is closer, but I would not want to give you the positive connotations that go with that phrase either. From what you write, though, obviously I was right about what your resources really are. Speaking of which: 6. On pop culture: being”in touch” with it does not require being indoctrinated by it. You will find that EpheSians chapter 4 suggests what a Christian’s standard or measuring stick for truth should be; why not use it! C. On your “hockey buddies”: having, for years, had to explain philosophical and theological ideas to friends not familiar with either, I can relate to your concern. However, you do not have to change either theology or philosophyfundamentallyin ordertocommunicate their “sophisticated” ideas to your “buddies”. It insults them for you to think so. If you simply use your own intelligence, surely you can translate


the big words (even Karl Rahner’s) into little ones. You will find that when people are not treated as if they were idiots, or spoken down to (which amounts to the same thing), it is amazing how intelligent they turn out to be. Conversely, not trying to appear intelligent or sophisticated yourself (i.e., not using terms or language with which your listeners are unfamiliar) is usually the first indication others will have of your genuine wisdom. D. On the matriarchallpatriarchal thing: (I) did not YOU “merely” point out the fact of the influence religions have on culture; you also implicated that influence is at fault for such crimes as the Montreal massacre. (2) I am aware of matriarchal images in the great patriarchal religions. There are more emphatic, less obscure, and more suggestive ones than the Jesus=Sophia/wisdom one you cite- Consider, for example, the woman in travail image as it relates not to the church, but to Jesus himself in the agony of the atonement. You will find that symbolically, Jesus fulfils the role of a mother more completely than almost any other God or demi-God which has been depicted in any of the currently “great” religions. That this image is not discussed often is, for me, evidence of the apostasy of Christianity from its roots of understanding and sensitivity to the conditions, needs, and meaningfulness of women. That is the fault of people and culture, however, not religion. In “restored” Christianity, I believe, the proper understanding and respective places of patriarchy and matriarchy (fatherhood and motherhood) are available for the understanding of all who embrace it. (3) The fact that you focused on that issue, however, suggests that you had, in fact, missed my point originally. Did you? Is it more clear now?

I was in a similar situation on Jan. 29, only I was lucky. The ball didn’t hit anyone. On a night when Fed is packed, the ball would be just as likely to hit someone as not hit someone.

Pool ball falls at Fed Hall To the editorz Consider the following situation at Fed lialt; YQU are playing pool, taking a shot, and a ball jumps over the edge of the table. It rolls off the edge of the floor and hits someone on the top of the head. Unlikely? Maybe...maybe not.

trol program (begun in 1985, strictly enforced by the Indonesian government, with the financial support of the World Bank), and it is hard to dispute the fact that the eighteen year neargenocide in East Timor is holocaust. The peoples of East Timor continue to suffer and death is malignant under Indonesian military rule yet the Canadian government has repeatedly voted against resolutions adopted by the United Nations calling upon Indonesia to withdraw its military from the borders of East Timor. The killing must stop. If we ourselves are to take international law seriously, Indonesia must be considered a criminal state and condemned for its horrific crimes.

Can’t see the humour To the editm I was recently invited by a friend to attend the School of Optometry’s annual Skit Night. This is a night in which the different classes make up skits poking fun at professors, classmates, and colleagues. Some of the material was impressive and very creative. A lot of material was hard for me to understand not being involved with optometry. However, some of the material had me feeling sorry for those who it was directed to and I did not find it funny in the least. This made me think that if they could hurt their fellow classmates with whom they attend classes, how will they treat their patients once they have their own practices? With apologies to my friend, I must say I’ve lost a lot of respect for some of the students in the Waterloo School of Optometry.

To the editor: Do the interests of transnational corporate capital win out over those of basic human and civil rights? While sanctions against Indonesia have been in order since its illegal I975 invasion of East Timor, trade relations between Canada and Indonesia continue to flourish. In the meantime, the Canadian government provides Indonesia with millions each year in aid. Last year Babcock and Wilcox won a contract worth $400 mil!ion to manufacture coal fire burners for an Indonesian power plant. And like the napalm and bullets that Canada sent to Vietnam via the United States between I965 and 1973, military sales to Indonesia challenge our reputation as an international peacekeeper. In violation of the United Nations charter, the Indonesian occupation of East Timor continues. Summary executions are commonplace as is torture. Despite the Santa Cruz massacre of I 99 I, violence against a nations reign mostly uninterrupted. In the meantime, Canadian companies like Babcock and Wilcox and lnco benefit from their favourable economic ties to Indonesia+ An estimated one-third of the East Timorese

Their menstrual cycles were syncronized with the moon’s cycle. A full moon was like a ripe ovary in the night sky, letting everyone know that ovulation was OCcurring. This was their natural birth control method. When menstruation occured each individual of the community was given a few days of rest, and there you have the origin of the Sabbath, only the Catholic church came along and decided to change it to every seven days instead of twenty eight.

It has been my observation over the past few years that people don’t really know what religion is. They think they do, but most have a superfkial view which doesn’t begin to touch its vastness. According to the Webster’s Dictionary, religion is defined as follows: n. one of the prevalent systems of faith and worship: human recognition of superhuman controlling power and especially of a personal God entitled to obedience. As with most dictionary definitions which are bound by space limitations, this tends to be a bit vague and confusing. It does, however, mention some key elements.


If a person was stopped on the street and asked about religion, the reply would probably include believing in God, going to church, praying, and helping one another. This is the truth, but not the whole truth. Religion goes much futther than this. It isn’t just a belief, but a faith that extends to encompass the whole self, in essence it is your being itself. Then why alt the questions like “What does this have to do with religion?” This column has frequently been attacked with the above question. The answer is simple: because people have the shallow preconceived notion of what they think religion is, their minds aren’t open to see the way faith is grounded in different areas of life. People restrict the meaning of religion to the literal definition from the dictionary. This isn’t right. Faith is necessary to our existence, closer than many ever realize. It involves our total personality and is experienced in encounters of depth throughout our lives - for many people faith is most recognizable in times of crisis. Still, it is present at all times, to guide us and .to provide us with needed strength. Even though things may not have RELIGION written all over them, that doesn’t exclude

them from this category. No matter what your religious belief is, it is in everything; personal actions, morals, social and political issues of importance, and many other aspects of life. Religion and faith are the most important things in our existence; they are also the most ignored, avoided, feared,, scoffed at and brushed off. It is time that people addressed the presence of faith in themselves and in the progressive society we live in. It is time for us to learn to live in our faith, as our faith, and interact with true religious love and concern. Going to church and having a strong faith mean nothing if one doesn’t use this faith for the good of the world, and it remains trapped. We must free ourselves to walk the way of righteousness. I challenge all people to address this issue with (deep thought. Religion is... I find religion in... How would you fill in the blanks? The next time you go to ask, “What does this have to do with religion?” remember that God works in mysterious ways.

It is often asserted that there must be more to life than meets the eye. One might ask: “what’s it all for?” or proclaim “there must be a reason for it all.” What is man’s purpose? What is the meaning of life? First, I don’t see how it is all that obvious that there must be “some reason for it all”. This isn’t really an argument, just an expression of paranoia. I mean, you could try to explain how things come to happen in terms of physical laws but there are those who will always ask why. The trouble is that the universe in which we all live isn’t the sort of thing that has whys, only hows. So, in seekingwhy we were born (aside from the individual circumstances of our conceptions) we are really seeking to impose human motivations upon an unconscious physical process. Say that you are the sole survivor of an airline disaster. Maybe there is a temptation to ascribea special significance to the fact that only you were “spared”. Of course, you weren’t really spared any more than those who died were murdered, or called into god’s presence. Nothing was “looking out for you” anymore than anything was “out to get” the other passengers. The circumstances were simply such that the plane happened to crash and you happened to survive. The “reasons” behind these circumstances are not of the same type as the reasons that people such as you or I might have. The plane simply crashed due to a loose widget or faulty grapple-grummet, it did not crash on purpose or for a purpose. You survived because you happened to be sitting to the far left at the back of the plane, and it is not impossibly weird that you happened to end up with that particular


“Say: we believe in Allah and that which is revealed to us and that which was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob, and their children, and that which Moses and Jesus received and that the prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them and unto Him (Allah) we have surrendered”. -translation

of the


in Islam Shamf

An outstanding aspect of Islamic belief in prophethood is that Muslims believe in and respect all the messengers of Allah with no exceptions, According to Islam, Allah created humankind for a noble purpose: to worship Him and lead a virtuous life based on His teachings of guidance. How would one know his/her role and the purpose of his/her existence unless he/she received clear and practical instructions of what Allah wants him/her to do? Here comes the need for prophethood. Thus, Allah had chosen from every nation a prophet or more to convey His message to people. The Qur’an speaks about the duty of messengers: “We (Allah) send not the messengers save as bearers of good news and warners. Who so believes and does right, no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve. But as for those who deny Our revelations, torment will afflict them because of their disobedience.” [6:48-491. + In brief, prophets came with answers to Allah’s attributes, God’s instructions to humankind, life after death, paradise and hell. Since the revelations’ content is crucial, it must be authentic and must be brought by individuals whom we trust’ and respect. That is why, messengers are the selected elites of tneir societies in terms of moral conducts and intellectual abilities. The slanderous Biblical stories concerning some of the great prophets are not accepted by Muslims who see the prophets’ life as a model for the people. Hence, their personalities should attract people to accept the message they brought rather than drive them away by any imperfect character. After enumerating I 8 names of prophets, Allah urges us to copy the guidance He sent them with: “Those were the (prophets) who received Allah’s guidance. Copy the guidance they received ‘* [6:90].

seat because, well, someone had to. Further, there is no reason to believe that there is some supernatural force orchestrating all the chains of events in your life in the way that an author orders the events in a novel. We have perfectly good, though perhaps less colourful, explanations for how events unfold without having to search for a anthropocentric why. We have no grounds on which to do so other than those supplied by wishful thinking or a colourful imagination. So what do we mean when we ask about the meaning of life? What are we asking when we inquire about our ultimate purpose? I think these questions are motivated by a


sonal terms. We seek motives where there are no motives and ascribe anthropocentric patterns to mechanistic forces. Perhaps it is not surprising that we do so; human reasons are the sorts of

of life,

sic meaning, we ascribe meaning to things. Humans are the sorts of things which can place values, ascribe meanings and have purposes for various objects and events. A person does not have a purpose in the way that a tool or a machine has a purpose, in fact, one is likely to be insulted if asked *‘what purpose do you serve?” To ask what the meaning of life might be is to assume that life can have meaning above and beyond what you yourself invest in it. It assumes that there is some uniform recipe that one can follow. One is better to ask: “what meaning does my life have for me?”


[2: 1361.

But how can a prophet be recognized and distinguished from an imposter? One who seriously reads the Qur’an may conclude the following criteria after surveying the stories of the 25 prophets, (The Qur’an states that there are others we do not know), mentioned throughout the various chapters of the Qur’an. The basic and foremost feature of all the prophets is contained in their message (i.e,, oneness of Allah). That is to know Allah, to love Him, to fear Him, to submit to His will and worship Him alone. The Qur’an says:“Not a messenger did We (Allah) sent before you (Muhammad) without the inspiration sent by Us to him: that there is no god but I; therefore worship Me”[2 I :25]. A second feature of a prophet is the miracles Allah grants him for support. Miraculous victory over enemies, healing and giving life to dead, passing safely through the sea, fire being cool and safe, cleaving asunder of the moon are merely few examples of extraordinary historical events that,%took place during the lifetime of different prophets including Muhammad (PE3UH), the last prophet Unlike previous miracles that were shown to specific people at specifictimes, prophet Muhammad’s miracle (the Qur’an) is universal to the entire humankind and everlasting as he is the LAST prophet. “Say (0’ Muhammad): 0’ people! I am sent unto you ALL, as the Messenger of Allah, to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and eartti there is no god but He: it is He that gives both life and death. SO believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, who believes in Allah and His Words: follow him that (so) you may be guided”[7: ISS].

s part of International Development Week, the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) is hosting an international development film festival at the Davis Centre from February 7 to I I. First launched by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the federal agency responsible for foreign aid, International Development Week seeks to raise critical awareness of development issues around the world. The push towards globalisation, the widening gap between rich and poor, the threat of environmental collapse, and the rise in civil strife are some of the issues which will be examined during the film and speaker series. The time to examine these issues is opportune as the new federal Liberal government prepares to solicit public comments for its foreign policy review in the upcoming months. Global debt, women in development, environment, health, and Indigenous Peoples are some of the themes

which will be explored throughout the week. A forum on opportunities for overseas volunteer development work will be held February IO at 6:30 pm. “Kanehsatake: 270 years of resistance” will be featured the following evening at the same time, with guest speaker Eric Karenhatase Gabriel, of Native Networks CKWR-FM. The film festival closes on February I2 at I:00 pm with “El Norte”, a dramatic portrayal of peasant struggles in Latin America, followed by a discussion by Joel Torres, a Guatemalan immigrant and community activist. WPIRC will also present “When the Mountains Tremble” at the Princess cinema on February 28. This film, narrated by Rigoberta Menchu, tells the story of thirty years of US-initiated and backed military dictatorships in Guatemala. All films and lectures will be held in the Davis Centre, room 1302. For more information, contact WPIRG at 888-4882.

OUSA (continued


pg I)

Both Coleman and Flood agree that there are large areas where OUSA’s policies are inadequate or need a lot of work. Reconciling a “zero” ancillary fee policy with student-administration ancillary fee negotiations is just one area. According to Coleman, OUSA is still fighting an image of endorsing large tuition fee increases, and likely can not afford ta1 “take a double hit” and endorse ancillary fees. Ancillary fees “will go into deeper discussions” at OUSA, claimed Flood, though “0USA’s main stance is ifyou’re in agreement with a fee... I mean, you’re allowed ~to do what you want on campus,” and have student governments enter into negotiations with their administrations. UW is “fortunate” to be in the process at all, she continued. “Accountability” is another area OUSA will have to mesh out in the near future. Despite wide-spread use of the term by speakers and delegates, little concrete was proposed. References to the May, 1993 “Broadhurst” report from the Task Force on University Accountability, and the 1991 “Smith Commission” were common, but few delegates had definite ideas on what “accountability” meant or how to regulate it. “That’s something we could look into in more detail” Flood admitted, though she was unsure of what issues could be involved.

Local Economic Trading Systems (LETS) are systems of community based barterwhich began in I983 in Courtenay, B.C. in response to an economic restructuring ofthecommunity which was forced by plant closures. The system is growing as a community development strategy and is now operating in over twenty communities across Canada. There are hundreds of LET systems active around the world, and the system has been adopted as a national community economic strategy in the U.K. LETS is one of many creative ways for communities to respond to today’s adverse economic realities. LET systems aim to generate local economic activity in a way that ensures that the value of the transaction remains within the community economy.

It encourages


ties to work towards self sufficiency and to set their own economic priorities.



The base of the LETS exchange is an alternative currency called the green doltar. Green dollars are considered to be equal in value to regular Canadian dollars, and are taxable income as defined by Revenue Canada. Unlike Canadian dollars however, green dollars are interest free and no bills are ever issued. Green dollars act as a source of community credit, or community commitment (commitment is known as debt in the formal economy) which is created through the act of trading. In the LET system, you do not need any green money to trade. Community control over the economy is increased through this system because green dollars have no value outside of the community. This means that there is no leakage of money out of the community, and each transaction contributes to the economic strength and stability of the community economy. Within the LET system, green dollars can be used on their own, or in combination with Canadian dollars. The Let system itself is merely an administrative framework. An accounting system records transactions, and a listing service is generated for the community which advertises the needs and available services that exist within the system. LETS is not a traditional one-onone barter system where two people trade goods or services with each other, although this could happen. Rather, LETS is a system of extended barter where members of the community trade within the community. In LETS, a catalogue is created Iisting goods and services provided and wanted. Participants in the system “shop” from this list, generating green dollars. An example of how the system works would be that Ken gets his car fixed by jane and pays her in green dollars, Jane gets vegetables from Lisa and pays her in green dot lars, Lisa gets dental work done by Adam and pays him in green dollars, Adam gets wood from Ken and pays him in green dollars. In our regular economy, it is not possible to have a transaction between two broke people. In the LET system however, trading i? still possible. In the case where both ieople enter the system with no green dollar5. one trader would gain a green dollar credit, while the other would have a green dollar commitment. This allows for the system to promote trade regardless of the cornmunity’s current ecomonic condition.

In a LET system, it is possible for the members to put a cap on the amount of credit or commitment that can be accumulated by an individual. Because the purpose of LETS is to generate economic activity, the hoarding of credit would result in less opportunity for others within the system, while excess ‘commitment’ would represent a drain on its resources. An important aspect of LETS is that it is an alternative economy which exists alongside the formal economy. While it would be possible for a mature LET system to accomodate almost all human needs, the reality is that in the meantime, we all have to pay many bills in Canadian dollars. There are many reasons why LETS can be an important part of community development. LETS are created and controlled by their members, and are flexible. LETS provides its participants (particularly those who are under or unemployed) with an opportunity to

Deal!!! keep their skills up to date, and develop new skills, improving their long term employability. LET systems reduce unemployment so that employees have better bargaining power. In LETS, the work of an individual is valued, and this helps to strengthen their sense of purpose. By trading with each other, people in the community get to kno+ each other. LETS is inctusive; an informal structure gives opportunities for broad based participation. LET systems also encourage our use of local suppliers. The purchase of locally produced goods and services decreases energy consumption and encourages bioregional self sufficiency. Our global economy has made it difficult for us to support local goods and services. LETS provides people with

choices and control over how their money is spent. LET systems currently exist in Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph. If anyone is interested in developing a student LET system or in forming links with the K-W LET system, please contact WPIRG.

ALTERNATIVE by Ramsey Hart special

to Imprint

COMMUNITY, ENVIRONMENT, and ECONOMICS were the buzz words last weekend at Trent University’s downtown campus, the site of the Canadian Unifted Student Environmental Network (CUSEN) regional conference. Eleven UW students ventured to Peterborough, despite the weather, to listen, discuss, learn, and to exchange ideas and e-mail addresses. The conference was based around the premise that our present economic structure operates not in the best interest of society, but in the best interest of the few which maintain control over it As a result, traditional economic development is resulting in growing inequality and massive ecological destruction. For example, consider how three areas abounded with a wealth of natud resources early in Canadian history - the East Coast had plentiful fisheries, the Prairies had fertile topsoil several feet thick, and the North had mineral and lumber riches. These three areas, once rich with resources, now represent three of Canada’s most impoverished regions. Through workshops and discussion, the participants at the conference examined alternatives to traditional economic development. These alternatives use the economy to serve the community, not the community to serve the economy, and recognize the need to protect the Earth’s ecological systems. Bioregionalism is one such alternative. It is a concept whereby communities live to the best of their ability on the resources which exist within



their region (a watershed is often used to define the region). Rather than relying on extensive imports and exports, needs are met locally. Fundamental to this concept is the necessity of a sense of place, a sense of being at home in one’s region. This results in a greater sense of commitment to the region’s economic and ecological well being. The production and consumption of food is a primary component of the bioregional concept and were discussed in the Urban Food Strategies workshop. The use of community gardens was one solution to the dilemma of food production for urban communities. Another was buying from local producers in season. The possibilities of bioregional food consumption were elaborated upon at dinner on Saturday night while participants were treated to a d&licious indigenous meal made with ingredients entirely from the Peterbourough region, in the dead of winter no less! The development of local economic trading systems (LETS), and co-operatives also provide alternatives for economic development within a bioregionat context, and were each the topic of workshops. LETS are used to exchange goods and services locatly without the exchange of money. The advantage here is that the poor, unemployed, or under-employed are not excluded from participating in the economy, providing they have a service or good to offer which is considered of value to someone else in the community. The real benefits of the economic activity, meaningful employment, and fulfilling needs and wants, are felt directly without having to wait for a “trickledown”. Co-operatives are another means of development where the community and individuals benefit directly. Owned by those that work at or use the


business, complete community participation in decision making is possible. The 3 R’s and jobs workshop learned that jobs and ecological responsibility can also be developed simultaneously when the local resources are reused or recycled for local consumption. In their discussion on the principles of the 3 R’s, they decided that the first R should stand for reject, as there is a need to reject unsustainable consumptive habits. These concepts of community development conflict with the concept of an evolving global economy. This conflict was discussed in another workshop where participants came to the conclusion that “globalization” is not so much an evolution, but a consciously chosen direction for economic devetopment. This decision has been made by those which stand to have the most to gain, the economically empowered. Some of the most economically empowered organizatidns are transnational corporations. The economic resistance workshop examined techniques for decreasing the power and influence of these super-companies by using boycotts and community action. Action is what is needed and in many places it is happening. Throughout the conference case examples were used and examined. These are not just ideas that were discussed, but realistic proposals for individuals and communities to restructure our often misplaced priorities. At the end of the conference participants made a strong commitment to develop communities instead of economies.

Four Warriors had two goats each, Gilchrist, Steve”Heartand Soul” Smith, Chris “Crash” Kraemer, and Waterloo’s leading scorer, Jason “Swervyn” Mervyn, who also added an assist. The single tatty went to Steve “Dog” Woods, and other notable scorers included Dean “Dynamo” MacDonald with four assists, and blueliner John Wynne with three heipers. MacDonaid, who patrols the right side for the Demolition Line-of MacDonald, Kraemer, and Smith, also had a strong game against Toronto on the 29th, with two goals and two assists, as Waterloo edged the Varsity Blues 6-4. in addition to being named athlete of the week for his eight points and +7 ranking in the two games, MacDonald was also referred to as the “OUAA’s version of Charlie Hustle” in a Toronto Sun article. The Demolition Line, formed over Christmas holidays, took part in four of Waterloo’s six goals in Toronto, and 4

of the Warriors’ nine tallies in Guelph. Against Toronto, Smith had one goal and three assists, while Kraemer added one goal and one assist to his season totals. Other goats in the game were provided by the hardest working man in the OUM, Greg Alien, and the ever productive cookie-monster, Gilchrist, who now has goals in eight consecutive games. Toronto, one of the weaker squads in University hockey, actually proved to be a difficult opponent for the Warriors, who seemed to be over-confident as they faced the Blues. The first period saw most of the team floating around the ice, almost expecting a win, and Toronto was not prepared to just give it to them. The complacent Warriors finally woke up late in the first and managed to score a cheesy marker past Toronto’s goaltender, but Waterloo was still down 2- I with two periods left to go. Part way through the second the Ice-Men woke up for good and stayed awake, but it took a 4-2 Toronto lead to give Waterloo the smelting salts. By the end of two, the score was handcuffed at four apiece, with both

sides checking tenaciously to prevent the other side from establishing an attack Toronto also tried to protect their goalie, definitely not one of the league’s best, by simply firing the puck out of their end and trying to pick it up in the Waterloo zone before icing was called. The Black and Gold got tired of this style of play and decided to shut Toronto up for good, with Alien putting Waterloo up 5-4 late in the third, finally putting the game to bed with an empty-netter by Gilchrist.


See ya.

Last night the Warriors played a home game against Brock (details unavailable at press time), with the Badgers being the only team to shut the Warriors out this season, beating Waterloo 4-O in St. Catharines earlier in the season. Sunday the Warriors host the York Yeomen at 2:00 pm up at the Icefields, white their final regular season home game wilt be the vaunted battle of Waterloo on Wednesday night at 7:30.

Only two more games remain on the Waterloo Warriors hockey home schedule, with fans urged to come out early to see the Ice-Men play.

It seems like every game could be described as a must-win scenario for the up-and-down basketball Warriors. Tomorrow’s 2 p.m. tilt versus the McMaster Marauders at the PAC certainty qualifies. Since these two teams last met (a 90-6 l Mac rout in Hamilton two and a half weeks ago), the Warriors have blown out a nationally ranked team (the Brock Badgers) and lost a threepoint game, 78-75, to the Western Mustangs, who are now in the CiAU’s top-ten Iist. The Warriors also beat the Lancers in Windsor on Wednesday night, 92-89. Sean VanKoughnett led the Warrior charge with 24 points. Last year, M&laster seemed to eke out victories and nurse themsebes to a 12-2 divisional record before bowing out in the first round to the upstart Mustangs. By ail early indications, the Marauders are interested in erasing memories of that debacle and marching to a national title. This team is blowing out opponents on a regular basis. As for any team playing the Marauders, Waterloo’s task is obvious, but easier said than done: contain Jack Vanderpoi. in Mac’s big win over UW, the monster centre scored 29 points and ripped down 19 boards. Frustrating and heartbreaking are

regular season home games. Sunday sees Waterloo host the 812-O York Yeomen in a 2:OO pm start, with the only other meeting between these two teams resulting in a 3-2 Waterloo win in York. This win was back in the bad old days of November, when Warrior wins were harder to come by, especially on the road. The final regular season home game goes on Wednesday, February 9th, at 7:30pm, as the Wiifrid Laurier Golden

Hawks come to our house to play. Everybody knows these two teams don’t like each other much, and this game should provide fans with a preview of what to expect to see in the first round of the playoffs. The battle of Waterloo is always an exciting event, and Laurier fans always make a point of coming to our arena to make noise for the Golden Chickens, so it’s about damn time some Waterloo fans came out to make some noise for the battered

and bruised Warriors. To the regular fans who have come out faithfully to see the Pucksters all season (like Melanie) the team would like to say thanks for the support To the rest of the University community, the Warriors would like toask “Where the Hell have you been ail year!?“, and now cordially request the presence of any and ail Waterloo fans to cheer them on (and to heckle the enemy). See you at the games! (I’ll be in the penaiq box.)

edge hoops Warriors just two words that describe last Saturday’s ioss to the ‘Stangs at UWO’s Alumni Hail in London. A dotight from the start, this game was sloppily played by both teams. Warrior centre Tom Balfe scored with I :06 left to pull Waterloo within one point and the visitors gained possession after a jump bail. But ‘Stang Mike Lynch intercepted a B. J. York pass and put Western back up by three with the easy lay-up. Two Sean VanKoughnett threepoint attempts in the last 23 seconds clanged off the iron, giving Western the win. Perhaps more sloppy than the play af the athletes was the performance of the officiating crew, led by head blind


mouse Guy Cipriani. After realizing that he blew two charging calls against VanKoughnett early in the second half, Cipriani tried to even it up with an equally bogus charging call against ‘Stang Jonathan Dingie during the stretch run. Before Guy’s first mistake, Waterloo had used three consecutive UWO turnovers and some relentless trey-bombing to erase a 40-40 hatftime deadlock, go on an I l-4 run, and threaten to do to Western what they did to Brock early in the second half one week before. But a Brendan Noonan trey and some bench scoring from Blake Gage pulled the ‘Stangs back into the contest

First Orangeville and Duntroon, then Mkfland!

Nordic skiers do well despite temperatures by l’hvor Imprint

Stewart sports

After several months of intense training sessions and early morning practices at Chicopee, Waterloo’s nordic ski team embarked on their first interuniversity competition, last weekend. Scheduled to be the second BIG race of the season, frigid temperatures forced the Orangeville competition two weeks ago to be cancelled. However, those teams that did brave the cold, including Waterloo, went for training sessions in the scenic forests at Mono Nordic. 1’11tell you that a warm cosy fire next to my girlfriend would have been a hell of a lot more scenic than enduring 2 hours of frozen wilderness. Temperatures that day dipped below minus 40 degrees Celsius, with windchill. But last weekend proved that cold temperatures couldn’t stay around forever and provided excellent skiing for all. Waterloo skiers, being as ambitious as they are, left Friday afternoon to get some extra skiing in at the Duntroon race site. Duntroon, near Collingwood, was also the site of the Christmas training camp. This proved to be advantageous since most of the Waterloo skiers were very familiar with the terrain. However, the terrain wasn’t too pleasing to the skiers. Being situated on the Niagara escarpment, Duntroon had many steep climbs and downhills and showed its empowering force to many a skier. Nonetheless the Waterloo team showed its force to the other university teams. Saturday morning proved to be rather interesting indeed. The men’s team arrived at the race site early, after leaving the warm confides of the Collingwood Cranberry Inn, to prepare at the task at hand. That task being a IO-kilometre free style technique race. Team spots were also on the line causing several superb efforts were put forth. Steve Daniels lead the men’s team with a sixth-place finish in a field of 89. Brent Curry surprised many veterans with his improved speed

and agility, resulting in a 12th place finish. Dennis Paradine, Bradley frenette and Gary Plulm finished within a remarkably small margin of I8 seconds from each other. Norm O’Reilly, Trevor Stewart, Kevin Thomson and Chris Buchanan also had strong results. With such great finishes the Waterloo men’s team finished second overall against nine other universities. On the other hand, the women’s team encountered minor problems on the way to the race site. After much discussion with higher forces the team soon arrived and began a rather hasty prerace warm-up. Despite the uncontrolled circumstances that happened, the women’s team managed to keep the other skiers on their toes. Julie Murray lead the team, followed by Joanne Murray. Sara Ednie, Suzanne Plate and Tracey Curry also skied well. The men provided much needed encouragement to the Waterloo female athletes as they raced. Saturday was just a warm-up to what was to come. The next day brought higher temperatures and longer distances. Both the men’s and women’s race utilized most of the trail system at Duntroon and were a mass start, classic technique race. This made it more interesting to the spectators that had gathered near the start/finish line. With more than 80 senior men at the start line the Waterloo men’s team meandered through the mess of skis, poles and bodies to maintain good positions throughout the lengthy 30-km race. Returning to the base of the escarpment every IO km officials provided much needed refreshments to the passing endurance machines. The 30-km race took its toll on many a skier, including several members from the Watertoo team. In all, six and a half of the nine members of the team did the BONK, but amazingly only one had to drop out of the race do to an extreme BONK. Not bad considering most of the team had never raced anywhere close to 30 km before. Curry was the top finisher for the team,

followed by Daniels. Pluim managed to stay ahead of an excellent performance by Buchanan, who had passed a very BONKED Frenette. O’Reilly, Thomson and Stewart completed the race with all the available energy they had and again showed the prestige of the Waterloo team. Although a much shorter race, the women’s team had a very difficult IO km course to ski. All the female skiers put their best feet forward and provided much needed motivation to the male skiers as they passed each other on the course. The women’s team is looking stronger as the season moves on and should provide excellent competition in the upcoming races. The Waterloo athletes thank assistant coach Don McKinnon for preparing most of the teams skis over the two day competition. If it wasn’t for his excellent choice of wax on Sunday, the results would have been very different. Also, a thanks to Lisa Patterson, Lisa Kendall and Rob Graham who helped with the oficiating and also for providing encouraging team support. Last weekend the team was to race three very important races in Ottawa, but do to extreme weather conditions on Friday the race was postponed. Head coach, Dennis Paradine, agreed that travelling to Ottawa would have been a stressful trip for all athletes and moved the team selection race to the Udora competition. To those who had raced in Udora, near Uxbridge, before realized that it was a very different race course with an interesting Norwegian atmosphere. Although very, very flat, the course was highly technical due to the occasional tree or outhouse or Norwegian cottage sprawled out on the trails. Avoiding the various course obstacles may have been difficult, but the Nowegian competitors, known for being strong nordic skiers, were the hardest challenge of the weekend. Both the men’s and lady’s team did exa tremely well on Saturday’s classical technique event. Dennis Paradine lead the men’s team with a fourth place finish on the 20-km course, while julie Murray destroyed the women’s event with her second-place finish on the I O-km course. All other team athletes had strong finishes as

well. Conditions for both races were far from perfect. With the rain from the previous day and the cold temperatures overnight. the trails were covered in ice. Although making for a fast course, it prevented skiers from utilising a good classical technique. Most skiers double poled the entire course and definitely felt the consequences of it after the race. The hot tub available at the O’Reilly’s residence was certainly a warrn welcome to those aching muscles. A thanks to the O’Reilly’s for their warm hospitality and for providing a place to stay for the nordic ski team that night, especially on such shot-t notice. The team now has a verbal invitation for a free back stage tour of the Parliament Buildings by Mr. O’Reilly (MP for VictoriaHaliburton) the next time they visit Ottawa. Sunday brought much cotder temperatures and some confusion on what direction to take (the team’s navigational equipment had been malfunctioning most of the weekend). After finally arriving back in Udora the team awaited for the chilling minus 25 degree temperatures to climb to a balmy minus 20 degrees. A nordic skiing sanctioned event cannot be held if the air temperature is less tlhan minus 20 degrees Celsius. The temperatures eventually warmed up and the race was started. The men competed in a IO-km free style technique, mass start race. Out of 16 competitors, the seven member men’s team secured the top eleven positions with Paradine, Brad Frenette and Gary Pluim in the top four spots. The women skied the same course as the men, many of whom skied their personal best.

Da Warrior says, hoopsters need you! ATTENTION FANS!! Waterloo Warrior Basketball Game! Saturday, February 5, 1994 at 2:OOpm at the PAC. Bring your posters, voices, and energy as we take down the McMaster Marauders. Well frankly, I’m baffled. This Warrior has been left to scratch my helmet (he’ad) every time I look at the stands in our PAC during Waterloo Warrior basketball games. There appear to be a lot of empty seats, and I can’t figure out what the reason is. So, if you’ll forgive me, I’ll just run down some possibilities. Maybe our team sucks and isn’t as offensive and exciting as it should be. Well no, that can’t be right. Just a couple of short weeks ago, we demolished Brock I 14-90, who were ranked number eight in Canada at the time, and followed up that win with a trouncing of the Laurier Chicken Hawks. Hell, our team put up a total of 206 points in two home games. Then, they went to Western (number ten in Canada) and lost a heartbreaker by three, while proving the Warriors can play with anybody. They’re undefeated at home, and eager to keep that perfect PAC record intact against Mac this Saturday. There

WRONG! The Half Warrior products, definitely







Shall we start with the Prudential At shootout, or the Twin City Printing Fan of The Game. Free shirts, K-Swiss and $2,500 are up for grabs. There is more to the games than the actual

games. Nobody else goes to the game. Well unfortunately, that one is close. Waterloo fans were ranked a disappointing fifth in the OUAA West Fan Poll. C’mon, we can do a jot better than that. But, just one question: if everyone thinks that no one else goes, that just might be the problem. I’ll leave that one for you to ponder. We all know teams do much better when a large crowd cheers them on to victory, so why not get out of your villages, dorms, or houses, and show some support? And finally, the biggest misconception of all. There aren’t any celebrities at the games. Known world wide for his charisma, and ability to entertain, our own Waterloo Warrior (yours truly) hams it up at all Waterloo home games. What other celebrity can boast a 5-l one-on-one win against the Western Mustang mascot on a provincial telecast So, I think we’ve covered all we need to say. GET OUT THERE AND CHEER ON YOUR WARRIORS!! We need a tremendous crowd to dethrone McMaster from their perch up at number one in Canada. The Waterloo Warriors can beat the big boys, and they’ll pirove it again with your help tomorrow. See you there, signed,



An election - a brief by Ken Imprint


preview of the






Bryson staff

Once again it is time to get out the measuring stick and size up the candidates for our very own Federation of Students executive. What, then, are the issues, the dirt, the hopefuls, the lame ducks? Only time will tell, but, we can predict what those issuer will likely be. From reading over this year’s pick of the crop, it seems the issues are funding, ancillary fees, Fed accountability, a better co-op system, and more effective communication with the university administration. I must admit, however, that even before the candidates furnished Imprint with their writeups, I somehow knew that the list would run much like it does, You see, these have been the issues in every Fed election since I’ve been at this school. Let’s take a look back.... In 199 I, John Leddy was elected to the post of president, having ran on the platform of more student feedbackand input into the running of the Feds, greater Federation accountability to students, and that devil, government pesky underfunding to universities in general. Mr. Leddy proposed a teamwork approach for students and Feds to work together, but offered few ideas about how he would handle the underfunding problem. A few of his opponents also had concerns and issues, such as safety on campus and a re-organized co-op system to better serve students. I992 saw Dave Martin elected as president, him having ran mostly on the strength of the underfunding problem. Mat-tin did offer a solution, however, which was the now infamous income contingent loan repayment plan, whereby students repay their loan debt as a percentage of their post-graduation income. According to Martin’s presidential opponents, campus safety and Federation teamwork and visibility were also issues. Just last y ear, 1993, we witnessed the election of UW’s first woman Federation president, Catherine Coleman. Like Martin, Coleman ran on the underfunding issue, this time adding the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA) element to the picture. With OUSA, said Coleman, UW students would be paving the way to a better financial future - students pay more, the government









pays more, and university gets better. The minor issues of last year were, surprise surprise, safety on campus, a better co-op system, and a distant runner up was better campus recycling. With that brief yet informing overview of past Federation election issues in mind, what does this year’s election have to offer? The most noticeable difference between this year’s election and ones of recent years is the notice-









build? able lack of a referndum, not that they didn’t try to carry on the tradition, mind you. Back in the fall, Catherine Coleman did suggest running a OUSA rerendum in conjunction with this ygar’s election. That idea was quaslibd, however, by students council. Perhaps they’d rather not fight last year’s referendum again, perhaps they wanted to spare us all the grief. At least now we can actually focus our attention on the candidates and not on the latest round of arguements over

proceduresand Fed inbreeding that come with most referendums. But back to the elections. Most every candidate this year has mentioned the Pending ancillary fees and the need to keep those to a rhinimum. The other two featured bonuses are OUSA and the Canadian Campus Business Consortium, both of which, it is promised, will enhance students lives through lobbying and buying power. However, while the newest candidates have the luxury of offer-


ing their support of these organizations to students, the reality is, virtually all the ideas and work that went into both OUSA and CCBC were not theirs. So, they are offering something that already exists and that the students will get anyways. Beyond the very few new ideas that this year’s crop have come up with, with the Federation elections of 1994, students will be voting on the same issues and for the same candidates as they have for the last four years, or more. What then, should the issues really be? Who are we to vote for if we don’t have a real choice between distinct individuals? Regardless of the candidates, the electorate has to make a choice. And if all the candidates are mostly identical, it is up to the electorate to bring out the differences and demand that new issues be discussed. All this can be yours with a little prodding of the candidates. What should be at stake here, is the very essence of how these people operate, whether or not they have the backbone to stick to their principles, even in a losing battle. Of all the student politicians in Canada,therearemodistincttypes: those that will play the game of university administrations, hoping to minimize the pain inflicted on students in the process, and those who make demands about how they think universities should be run and how students should be treated - these, however, are more rare, What kind of people are these new candidates? Will they really fight administration for lower ancillary fees or will they acquiesce under pressure? Right now, the choice is yours. Will you vote for person who campaigns on the same platform everyone else has for the last decade, or will you force the issues, attend the forums, and ask the hard questions? As we all know, student politicians tend not to really have the power to change all the things they say they want to, so don’t be fooled by big plans. Think about it, who would you rather have in there on your side? And don’t forget, you can always spoil your ballot and say Bullocks! to all of them. ps. anyone interested in reading more about previous elections, especially last year’s referendum, please come down to Imprint and simply ask.

n the upcoming year, students wilt be faced with a number of extra challenges to go along with academic studies. Tuition fees are set to rise and the university administration plans to impose extra fees on top of that for services such as Campus Recreation and Health and Safety, which until now have been covered by your tuition. It is vital that next year’s Federation of Students executive have the experience and the ability to ensure that such fees are kept to a minimum and that undergraduate students can reap the most from university services. In their time here at UW, Steve Codrington, Christine Dewhurst, and Andreas Kurvits have proven that commitment. Steve Codrington, running for president, is a past president of the engineering society. While in his program of Civil Engineering, he has spent work terms in the fields of consulting and in public utility industries. These positions have given him a strong background in student leadership and public relations, characteristics that are vital for the role of president. Steve’s foremost priority is ensuring that students at the University of Waterloo have any fee increases kept to an absolute minimum while seeing that the quality of teaching is increased around campus. Unfortunately, many students are faced with the reality rhat a

Steve Codrington President university education is becoming harder and harder to afford. By using the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance as an inter-university co-ordinating and lobbying group and the Canadian Campus Business Consortium as a buying network, Steve will see that your money is spent wisely, both with the university administration and in your Federation of Students services. As president, Steve will act as a link between students and the university administration. His election would see that the potential of that link is realized to its fullest, so that you are granted the quality education that you expect and deserve. As candidate for thevice-presi-

Christine Dewhurst

Andreas Kurvits



dent, operations and finance position, Christine Dewhurst is in her final year in the honours math/ chartered accountancy program. Through her course of study, she has earned work experience that is directly applicable to the VPOF job. Five years at the chartered accountancy firm Peat-Marwick Thorne has given her the competence to administer a corporation as big as your Federation of Students. Her position as creator and service co-ordinator of the Student Part-Time Employment Centre (SPEC) and her four years working at Fed Hall (one year on the management team) have given her a strong background to the set-vices she will be responsible for.

Christine is well known to people who have lived in Village One in the past few years. She has served as a village don for the past four years and as the head don for summer ‘92. She also co-chaired the enormously succesful I993 Villages charity ball which broke records for charity fundraising in the student residences. In her faculty, Christine has been a long time member of Math Sot and a founder of the Math Endowment Fund proposal. In the VPOF position, Christine plans to see that all your Federation services are operated in a fiscally responsible way. To her, communication is a neccessary trait in student government. If elected, Christine promises quarterly finan-

cial reports and a campaign to improve the visibility of Federation of Students services. Andreas Kurvits, candidate for vice-president, university affairs, is a fourth year honours political science (legal studies option) student. His strong background in different levels of government - on the campus, municipal, and provincial levels - give him the important experience necessary to make student voices heard. Having spent three years on your Federation of Students council and one year on its board of directors have given him an understanding of the potential of this group. Andreas hopes to serve you by continuing to fight for a fair system of student financial assistance. Over the past few years he has already made some progress by representing this campus on the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance and directly at Queen’s Park. Safety issues are also of primary and immediate concern. By using his experience working with the university administration and municipal government, your personal security concerns will be met, both on and off campus. As the only VPUA candidate with co-op experience, Andreas is in an excellent position to ensure that co-op services provides quality service and better job selection to this university’s IO 000 co-op students. His long-term goals include creating a half-hour television program to highlight student news and showcase student life on campus

he President of the Federation must ensure that your views are heard and acted upon in the most effective manner. My ability as both a manager and student leader provide me with the qualities necessary to ensure accountability by both the university and the Federation. Students will likely face a I5 per cent increase in the cost of tuition this fall, as well as a further “ancillary” fee of approximately $100. Students are forced to pay for a greater share of the cost of their education. As chair of Board of Academic Affairs and president of the Environmental Studies Society, I have gained negotiating skills with the administration and I plan to use those skills to lobby for an increase in student voice proportionate to the fee increase. Students are concerned that tenure allows some professors to teach at a substandard level. Unfortunately there is little or no student input in either the tenure or promotion process. I plan to draft a proposal to the administration+ callingfor student input on these processes, thereby giving students more control over their learning envi-. ronment. The current relationship between the administration and students is less than ideal. In many cases, students are treated with neither the respect nor the courtesy they deserve. As manager of the




shop, I have gained the experience needed to develop a 3-5 year “Student as a Client” plan. This plan

Bruce Winter President would see the student administrative relatinship become more of a partnership, thereby treating the students as if they were clients using a service. The VPOF must ensure that your money is managed reponsibly and allocated wisely. This position requires strong leadership, sound judgement and integrity. My two years as a Village don, and my active invoivement in the Student Coordinated Plan have helped to provide me with the experience and qualities necessary to carry out this role effectively. As a current member of the Management Board, f have gained insight into the interaction between the students and university. My experience as a member of the Endowment Fund Committee has put me in touch with the needs and priorities of students.

Randy Bareham.

Julie Cole VPUA

VPOF The new Student Life Centre, scheduled co open next fall, will provide opportunites to enhance the visibility, accessibility, and quality of Federation services. As VPOF, I will take full advantage of these opportunities to more effectively address the needs of the students. The Federation can realize significant benefits from the CCBC (Canadian Campus Business Consortium), and I intend to make full use of this consortium in order to maximize both savings and potential revenues. SWAPS (Students of Waterloo Accessing Products and Services), is a new service that I plan to introduce. It will give students a new say for exchanging skills and products with other students with a “virtual economy”. The next year will be a time of growth and change for the Feds

and I am committed to seeing that steps are taken responsibly from the start, ensuring the interest of the students are always given the highest priority. The VPUA is a position that requires effective and open communication. While attending UW, I have been involved in many activities which have provided me with a clear understanding of students’ needs. There is great diversity within the student body, and I look forward to hearing your special and individual concerns. I have strong negotiation skills and I am not intimidated by a challenge. One of the responsibilities of the VPUA is to co-ordinate student services, many of which often go unused and unnoticed. WorkingasavolunteeratPALS

and the Legal Resource Office has made me aware that certain serv-

ices require a comfortable and confidential atmosphere. I plan on making these services both recognizable and inviting by building strong volunteer bases, and increasingstudent awareness. As the head don of Village II, I see how difficult the transition for first year students can be. I plan to develop a “Neigh bou rhood Don” program. I propose that an upper year student in the different areas of Waterloo act as a Don who is responsible for helping to make a smooth transition for new UW students. While safety on campus is a great concern, these concerns should not be abandoned when students leave Waterloo for work that can be tak:en if they are victims of sexual harassment. Presently, there is an effort to attain funding for a l-800 number for students in crisis, Grants have been received for next year which will be allocated towards there and other safety issues. It would be my duty to solicit these funds and to ensure that they are applied to the areas that we, as students, deem most important. While each of us feel that we are able to work effectively with any of the candidates, our group dynamic has developed into a unique partnership, providing a forum which supports communication and the fostering of ideas.

Moser awards for deservina senior students

Seven from


UW Athletics


The Mike Moser Memorial Awards are named after the late Mike Moser. Moser was a member of the Warrior basketball team at the time of his sudden death on January 12, 1975 while the Warriors were on an exhibition trip to Florida.

The CIAU recognized his outstanding contribution to the game of basketball by naming the trophy for the most valuable university basketball player in the country after him. Moser was posthumously named the first recipient in 1975. The University of Waterloo established an endowment at the time of Moser’s death, the proceeds awarded annually to “third or fourth year students in financial need who have an exemplary academic record and who have achieved a high level of accomplishment in extracurricular activities.” The Mike Moser awards are presented annually at half-time of a Warrior home game. This year’s awards were presented at the game between the Waterloo Warriors and the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks on January 26.

Campus CRACCESSIBILITY PAC by Mary-Anne Fairbairn Publicity Coordinator



Many ofyou are probably not aware of a relatively new program offered through Campus Rec. The Accessibility program was established only a year ago for students with disabilities to become participants in physical activities offered through PAC. This year’s coordinator, Sandra Berzaitis, has modified the program by expanding activities beyond PAC. Through socials like movie nights, games days, and a visit to Loose Change Louie’s she hopes to integrate the students into activities that may not have been previously accessible. The main resource of the Accessibility program are participants themselves, from off and on campus, and volunteers of the Ret Pals program. The program is very personal, with only 9 disabled participants matched with appropriate partners. Students are paired according to schedules, interests, and specifically, interests within the PAC facility and CR program. Volunteers must be dependable, so that their partner can get in touch when they wish to work out, swim, attend a club, or even get around campus without the access van. “The partnership is a support system,” says Sandra, “and they are encouraged to develop a friendship which carries them beyond the activities of our program.” Some students request parteners willing to go to shopping mails or other settings which may not be easily accessible. Beyond Ret Pals and the planned activities, the Accessibility program tries to monitor and evaluate UW recreation facilities and programs to enable disabled students to access programs without dificulty. This goal extends beyond our 2 facilities. For example, the ramp outside the CC was extended due to a member’s problem making the cornet-s. Currently it is very difficult to get new members for the program because it is so new. The Ofice for Persons with Disabilities is a main resource for


the program. All students with disabilities from sight problems to physical impairments are welcome to participate at any time. If you are interested in learning more about the program contact Sandra at 888-4567 ext. 3533. We are always looking for new resources. Also, if anyone knows where we might borrow wheelchairs, please call the same number. The UW Curling Club is already active this term with approximately 80 members taking part in biweekly games. Sundays from 8 until IO pm and Tuesday nights from IO pm until midnight are the ice times at Kitchener’s Granite Club, where teams composed of members at all levels of experience play amongst each other. For $45/term, or $70 for two terms, members can sign up individually or as part of a team. The UW fee is higher than other universities because the club’s ice time is not subsidized by the Athletic Department.

Mace1 buoys Athenas but Western sweeps swimmers by Natalie Setkin Imprint sports

On Wednesday

Basketball by Shannon VanKoughnett Imprint sports Last Wednesday, the Athena hoopsters happened upon a group of intruders in their gym. Bursting out to a 9-2 lead early in the game, the Athenas never looked back (okay, maybe they did take a quick glance once or twice). In the end, Waterloo prevailed 64-36 in a game that tended to get scrappy on many occasions. With the win, the Athenas improved their record to 4-5 and are still battling for a playoff position. Against the attempted porridge thieves, sophomore Kim Stusyk had I6 points and seven rebounds. Other Athenas in double figures for scoring were janice Awad, who finished the game

with I3 points, nine of those coming from threepoint range, and rookie guard Jena Steele, who had I 3 and tore down an impressive seven boards. ]unior forward Sue Kruis was a bear under the basket, cleaning the glass to finish the game with a team-high nine rebounds. On Saturday, our fearless Athenas travelled south to purple horse country to challenge the devil. The Waterloo women cagers stayed with the UWO mules in the early part of the game. A lapse in play by the Athenas with about I5 minutes to play in the first half allowed the evil purple satans to stampede to a lead that would prove to be insurmountable for the women in black and gold. Although our golden hoopsters outscored


This past Saturday, the varsity swim teams hosted Western for the final dual meet of the season before the Ontario championships. With both teams wanting to see performances that would ensure proper preparation for the upcoming championships+ a competitive meet was guaranteed. The strategy for the Warriors was to win every event possible and encourage the backup swimmers to challenge for placing. The Athenas were faced with an even more daunting task knowing that their ranks were diminished by teammates missing because of co-op work term commitments. With the meet commencing with the 4-byIO0 medley relay, the depth problem for the Athenas and Warriors was evident from the start. The Western women entered three teams to Waterloo’s two. The Mustangs won the event with a resulting score of 13-2. The Warriors were up against the same ratio as the women in the 4by- IO0 medley relay they too scored 2 to Western’s I3 points. In the 800 free, Brian Roughley challenged Western swimming neck n’ neck. But Roughley pulled ahead and placed first. Fellow long distance swimmer Peter Spoor took third place. Together, they beat Western scoring I I points to 6 (cumulative score for men was I9- I3 for Western). The women’s 800 free was equally exciting as Tereza Mace1 smoked Western by opening up a length ahead in the last half of the race. Marcella Garron came in fifth, helping the Athenas to score eight points close behind Western’s nine (cumulative women score was 22- IO for Western). Again, Waterloo dominated the men’s 200 free, crushing Western IO to 7 with Ed Furs charging to the wall in first white teammate Terry Baccy was just two seconds behind in third place. The Athenas weren’t as strong in the same event, but lean Beatty and Laura Anderson had superb efforts. In the men’s 50 free Western won the overall point total 9-8, even though Ian Hunt won the race with an excellent time of 2 I .86 (cumula-

Leading the depleted eight-player Athena roster were Stusyk with ten points and eight rebounds and Awad, who had I I points and six boards. Rookie Shawn Suderman and sophomore Shannon VanKoughnett came off the bench to provide some much needed help with rebounding, collecting five and six respectively. Missing for the line-up was jena Steele who sprained her ankle a day earlier in practice. Top scorers for the Saans were Lori Bartolotta with 18, Casey Winegard with I7 and Michelle Vesprini with I6 points and I3 rebounds.

tive score of 38-28 for Western). Athena Deanna Hlywka sped through the water to second place in the 50free with Christine Guerriero close behind in third. The score for this event was I O-7 for the purple team. The Warriors continued to prove their strengths when Chris Nagy took first place in the 200 individual medley and Andrew Camright took third with a score of I I-6 for us - the good guys* Athena Kara Rice continued to achieve personal best times with a second in the 200 individual medley. Teammate Melissa Williams was third helping the Athenas to score 7 points to Western’s IO (cumulative score 56-27 for the purple). Furs won first in the power event, the 200 fly. Western’s geldings dominated this same event, scoring I4 points to Waterloo’s three despite personal best efforts by Christine Guerriero and Tatjana Sabados. The next sprinter, Hunt, showed his stuff in the IO0 free, hitting the wall three seconds ahead of Western. With Andrew Cartwright, who was third, they scored IO points to Western’s 7. Rice was strong in the 100 free placing second and scoring four points, and with Tanya Merrill helping (with a score of one point) they tried to beat Western who had 12 points. Waterloo smothered those ‘Stangs in the 200 back with a score of I 3-4. Chris Nagy took his second first place finish of the day and Terry Baccy took second place while Joachim Huth helped with a fourth place and increasing the team’s total points. Deanna Hlyvvka was first in the women’s 200 back, with a fourth by Marcela Garzon and fifth by Gillian McDowell who helped win the event I O-7. In the 400 free, the Warriors lost IO-7 but excellent placing and swims were seen by Roughley in second and Spoor in third place. The Athenas were a bit stronger in the 400 free as Mace1 took first place in this exciting event, beating Western by six seconds. Laura Anderson scored one point. Western had more swimmers and as a result ended up winning the event by a score of 9-8 (cumulative score 102-50 for you know who). The final men’s individual event, the 200 breast, was won by Western 14-4. Eric Huff swam to third place and Steve Brown in fifth, Both men worked hard to conquer those ‘Stangs but the competition was tough. Overall the men won seven of nine individual events accomplishing the goal set out for the men’s team. In the 4-by- IO0 free relay there were three Waterloo men’s team versus two from Western. Western won I 1-4 but the Warriors put up a good fight just being out touched by I22 seconds. the final men’s score was 95-88 for Western. Athena jean Beatty was fastest in the 200 breaststroke placing first, with Williams picking up third and Corinne Peden in fourth. Together they crushed the visiting team 12-5 for one of the better individual event performances by the Athenas. In the 4-by- IO0 free relay the women place third with a team of Macel, Hlywka, Rice and Guerriero losing overall scores to Western’s four teams, 13-2. The final score for the women was I 16-67 for Western.

about the eveningwhen we notice that Tim has made his way back on the scene, sitting two stools away from us, conversing with a small group of fans.

9:06 p.m. After hearing that the Charlatans are not into dwelling on negative aspects of their band (guitarist Jon Raker left the band while on their last tour and their keyboard player is currently in prison for driving a getaway car in a robbery) and that they are very pleased with the new album because of the “jamming feel” they have captured on it, I finally get in a question of my own. “Who is your biggest

9:39 p.m. The press conference is over, but Tim and John stick around to sign autographs and chat informally. Craig and I talk to them individually for about five minutes each at this point. The two are drinking Jack Daniels and Coke and I’m on my fourth beer. We ask when they’ll be playing in Toronto (April,) who they’ll be playing with (they don’t know) and we tell them that the new album, which is playing in the background, is fucking great (it realty is). Tim is flattered and dancing around. He than asks me ‘* Do you love ]ohnnyMarr ?*’ because of the question I asked earlier. I nod, then ask to have my picture taken with him and he obliges. Craig proceeds to snap some shots and again we are impressed with the genuine sincerity of these guys, who are led away by Ivan from Polygram. I 0: I 2 p.m.

lights, “For Seeking Heat,” “Destination: Satansville” and the single “Duel” all made an appearance, although two of the band’s more popular songs “Never Lose that Feeling” and “Feel so Real” were left off the set list. The band remained prettysubdued throughout their performance, which for anyone who’s travelled a distance to see them, is a bit of a downer. Fortunately, the sound was great, and there was enough innovation in the band’s live performance to make it worth it. Unfortunately, I had to stay towards the back of the Opera House since for some fucking reason the place was filled withgoddamn kids. The show was all ages, which made it a bit of a pain in the ass to see the band at all. There’s really no reason why Swervedriver shouldn’t be as big as bands like Smashing Pumpkins. The only reason that the Pumpkins have garnered so much more attention is that they play much more aggressive tunes, on average, than the Swervies. However, if Mezcol Head has proven anything, it’s that their brand of music is as original as anything else coming out of Britain, but it still manages to retain enough form to make

AtwaE staf.!f.

Few bands have been subject to the unceremonious lineup changes of Swervedriver. Some band members la$ a week, some a tour, others walk out of a tour bus saying that they’re going for a sandwich, and never return (believe it or not) However, if any of these disruptions have plagued the band musically, there was no indication of this at their recent Opera House show. It was one year ago to the date, Monday February 1st) that I saw &ervedriver’s opening act Medicine open up for Mercury Rev. Since then, they’ve managed to put out a CD that’s been getting some reasonably good reviews and I was willing to give them a chance on stage again. Unfortunately it was clear after -t&r performance that they remain a studio band, due in large part to the staccato plodding of the band’s drummer. It’s quite likely that they’ll be able to continue to grow on record, but as a live act, they remain an unpjeasurable experience at best. Swervedriver played a short, but memorable fourteen song set, showcasing mostJy songs from last year’s Mezcd Head.

I I :45 p.m. We are on our way home now and I’m drunk. What a great night out. Free food, free beer and conversation with The Charlatans. Thanks again to Polygram for putting this wing-ding on. And check out the new Charlatans album when it’s officially released. These guys deserve the success.

IO:38 p.m. Tim leaves again, this time hugging and kissing the seven or so of us on the cheek. Craig turns to me in surprise and says “He kissed me !” I said “1 know, me too. And I kissed him back!” I I :20 Craig and I have just spent the I;ast thirty minutes talking to two guys fr torn Polygram. They seemed to appreciate us coming and especially taking the time out to thank them for a great night. Yes, we at Imprint love to kiss corporate ass. Ivan and Ron also told us that they would get l+mprint tickets to the sold-outjames and Wonder Stuff shows coming up soon, as well as the press conferences before them. Several jokes are exchanged.

A few die hards got up the nerve to skate over to Fed Hall to watch Vancouver-based bands, Rymes With Orange, and the main actofthe evening, The Odds. When Rymes With Orange opened, Fed Hall was practically empty, but Orange fans proved that you don’t need a lot of people to fill a mosh pit. Stragglers kept straggling in, and by the end of the set, the floor was almost fi Iled. Rymes With Orange gave us a good taste of their CD feel, and played songs such as “ltc hicoo Park” and “Marvin”. I envy musicians’ ability to manipulate; after playing “Log”, the catchy “Ren and Stimpy” commercialesque song, Rymes With Orange offered a ceremonial log to their audience, a log which had the priviledge of surfing over the heads of the people in the crowd. Only musicians have the power to persuade adults to do such wacky things. Seeing someone jump around with a piece of wood makes me want to run out, buy a Strat, and start singing. Rymes With Orange are a clever,

The bassist’s acrobatic climbingabilityalonewas worth spending six bucks on, and easily made up for the lead singer’s apparent lack of enthusiasm. Maybe he was just disappointed with the huge percentage of rotten dancers in the audience. Talent-wise, Rymes With Orange were good to listen to. From percussion to vocals, they are a tight, wellbalanced musical act. (I even liked the Jenny Craig outfit sported by lead singer Lyndon Johnson. You know, the one worn in their Much Music video, “Memory Fade.“) 1 could try to compare them to other bass-slapping, delayed-slide guitar playing groups, but they are the type of band that has to be seen and heard to be appreciated. Unfortunately, The Odds were the main act of the evening. Although

they did have the benefit of playing to a somewhat larger audience than Rymes With Orange, The Odds lacked the energy of the opening band. The Odds are good enough musicians to sound identical to their second CD, Bedbugs (except the songs they played from their first CD, NeopoI&7n), but the emotion that comes from playing live wasn’t present. Sure, they were swell, but after enjoying Rymes With Orange and their funky, dancible tunes, The Odds seemed a little too contrived and calculated. They are too mainstream-l-think-l’veheard-that-one-before-Rock’ n’ Roll for me. I enjoy more off the wall and truly original sounding music. Thankfully, Rymes With Orange redeemed the show, and the evening wasn’t a complete waste of time.

The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams will be performed February 9- I2 in the Theatre of the Arts at UW. The show is part of the Drama Department’s 25th Anniversary Season. For those of you who do not recall the play from high school English, I shall tell you a little about it. The Glass Menagerie is set in the late 30’s in St Louis. It is a play about the struggles of a family during the depression. Tom (Joel Harris), who is both narrator and a character in the play, supports his family through a warehouse job which he despises. His sister Laura (Linda Albanese), has no life beyond her imagination and lives through her glass menagerie and collection of records. Their mother Amanda (Nancy Forde), tries to make a future for both Tom and Laura and is obsessed with firding her daughter a husband. That is where jim ijoey Morin) comes into play. He becomes Amanda’s “Gentleman Caller” for Laura when Tom invites him for dinner. Nancy Forde, who has appeared in a number of roles at UW and will also appear in the upcoming production of The Country Wife, feels this is

Celtic Rawlins

CrosslScott Bombshelter


January 28, I994

by Frank Imprint

Segfenieks staff

Celtic inspired music in Canada has certainly seen its popularity rise in the last while, bands such as Spirit of the West (yes, even on their latest album), the Rankins, War Wagon, and Uische Beatha, have shown that this type of music isn’t limited to barn dances on Cape Breton Island. Last Thursday, the Bombshelter was host to Rawlins Cross, one of the finest bands to mix Celtic and rock music. Throughout their one and a half hour set they played an inspired mixture of songs from their two earlier albums as well as their recent release Reel’n’Roll.


etc six Degrees Directed

by Peter Imprint

of Sepumtiun by Fred Schepisi

H6flich stun

Six Degrees of SejMfution is a new film, based on a long-running play, and starring Donald Sutherland, Stockard Channing, and Will Smith (a.k.a. Fresh Prince). It potirays a wealthy New York couple of art dealers (Sutherland and Channing) in their upper-class lifestyle, and how it is disturbed by Paul (Smith), Sidney Poitier’s son and a ctassmate of their chiidren’s who shows up on the doorstep bleeding. He wins their trust’ charms their intellects, cooks them the best dinner that they’ve ever had, inadvemntly helps them make a multi-million-dollar art deal, and then betraysrheir trust. He is rejected. Net loss, $50. He’s also a rude awakening to the realities of upper-class hypocrisy and a reminder to flaky art-lovers and epicureans that truth is often an uncertain thing, that there’s a real world out there somewhere beyond the paint strokes and rich upper-trusties. The rest of the movie is a second-hand account of what the couple learn about Paul’s whereabouts and activities through second-hand accounti and the amateur detective hunt they organize to find out who he realty is. Paul’s character is fascinating, and played extremely well by the talented Smith. He’s most probably a metaphor for the hypocrisy of elitism, homophobia, and racism (more elite than racist at least) in high society since there is an uncertainty about his entire being and the only thing that can be established about him is that he is not


The band has gone through a major change in the last year with the addition ofJoey Kitson as the dedicated lead singer, on the band’s first two albums A Turn ofthe Wheel and Crossing the Border, singing duties were shared between principal songwriters Dave and Geoff Panting. It’s always strange to hear songs you know sung by a different person, so hearing Kitson on some of the more familiar tunes was strange, but I did enjoy his full rich voice. He also seemed very comfortable and well integrated with the band, dancing around the stage when he was not singing (hard finding things to do when you are the lead singer in band which plays one third instrumental songs). The most impressive aspect of the stage show was watching tan McKinnon going through instruments like Dave Letterman through suits, in one song alone he might play bagpipes, tin whistle, trumpet and bodhran. He never

brow etc what he says. A young man struggling for an identity, his identity is that of a chameleon, which is no identity. At the end of the movie, there is some doubt as to whether he existed, or if anyone can ever find him again, since he has disappeared completely. In this; there is something similar to the books of UW’s own Eric McCormack, or Mishima in his Seo ofFeti/Q tetratogy, in that the more one learns, the closer one actually is to the truth, which might not even exist, or at least not in a form that we have been accustomed to. Truth dissolving was never truth, was it? Six Degrees has its rough edges, particularly in the concept behind its title’ which I don’t entirely understand, as wel! as some of the incidents in the movie. But it is overall an excellent film that provides plenty of cleverness to keep the brain going, enough mystery to maintain interest, and even some laughter to keep the ribcage loose, particularly in the caricatures of the alienated paranoid children of the middle-aged sophisticates-cum-P.i.s in the movie. I felt that the film dissolves at the ending, which is somewhat of a cop-out and doesn’t live up to the potential that the whole film builds up to, however that is my only real criticism of an otherwise intriguing and excellent film.

took a rest and seemed to enjoy every minute he was up there earning him the title of The Hardest Working Man in Celtic Music. As for the other members of the band; Geoff Panting played both the piano accordion and button accordion, Dave Panting had a selection of stringed instruments including guitar, mandolin and banjo, Howie Southwood was on drums, and Brian Bourne was quite proficient on the bass and Chapman Stick (familiar to many as the long stringed instrument played by Hugh MacMillan of Spirit of the West). Together they were in fine form interspersing haunting, slow, traditional songs with ones which managed to get a good proportion of the large audience dancing. The crowd size was surprising considering the major freezing rain storm which hit the area that night, atso the range of ages in the audience showed the wide appear the

Lay My Fair Lady Centfe in the Square January 3 I, February I, I994

By now, just about everyone must be familiar with the plot ofMy Fair Lady. Dr. Henry Higgins makes a bet with an acquaintance, Colonel Pickering, that he can pass off a common Coventry Garden flower girt, Etiza Doolittle, as a lady -- indeed, a Duchess -- in a short six months. And he wins his wager. Higgins’ browbeating and the Colonel’s charm combine to teach the 2 I -year-old Eliza, among other things, that the “a” in rain, Spain, mainly, and plain ought to be pronounced as “a” and not ‘7”. Of course, they teach her more than that, and Higgins’ triumph comes at the Buckingham Palace ball when one of his scholarly rivals mistakes her for a Hungarian-born princess. The play’s obvious revelation turns on the contrast between how Higgins and Pickering treat Doolittle. The difference be_tween a lady and a flower girl is not how they talk, but how they are treated, Eliza expresses late in the matter. ‘I will always be a flower girl to Professor Higgins because he treats me like one and always will,” she says.



eh,, band enjoys. V&y early in the set they played arguably their most popular song (at least my favourite) “Cotleen” from A Turn oftk Wheel, later in the set they pleased the attentive crowd with “Legendary” from Crossing the Border and some songs from the new album including the instrumental “The Wedding Gift” and foot stomper ‘It’ll Have to Wait”, many traditional jigs and reels were also thrown in paying homage to the bands musical roots. I believe the band does well when it plays its specialty of Celtic music, sometimes however they go over a bit too far to the blues/rock side of their sound. Although musically stiII valid, it takes something away from the uniqueness of their sound, I think the band works better when they don’t stray too far from the traditional sound which


got me interested in them in the first place. Opener for the night was Scott Deneau who seems to be playing every time I turn a corner in this town. This night he played for about an hour accompanied by a cellist and drummer. I enjoyed the musical part of his show and when he would explain where he got the inspiration for the songs or how he wrote them. Unfortunately he also tried some humour in some of the between song banter which seemed very forced to me, as welt, although I am sure he was just trying to be silty, some of the things he said made him sound rather pretentious and self right-

eous. Overall a great night of music for cettic music lovers and a good choice by Bent to get Rawlins Cross to play on campus, a nice change from Mike Something or the Dervishes every other week.



“But I wili always be a lady to Colonel Pickering because he always treats me like a lady and always will.” So far, so clear. But there is one huge question that comes to mind when seeing this play performed in 1994. Where are the placards and redfaced demonstrators? What is it about My Fair Lady that has prevented it from being accosted by politically correct thinkers with the same dogged persistence with which they hound Show Boat? Although I knew that Eliza would gain some measure of self-respect by the end of the musical, I was still struck by the misogyny built into the dialogue, the lyrics of some of the songs, indeed, the very premise of the play. For the woman who accompanied me to the Centre in the Square production, the misogynistic characteristics of this play were palpable. The class distinctions had little to do with the play’s central p er strug gle. Higgins has similar ntempt for women of his own st 27 .., and Eliza’s father, Alfred Doolitt& treats his female peers with abut as much respect, boasting abc& his last night of bachelor debauchtiry before getting to the church on tie. In the ple’s defence -- however does stand up to weak -- Do&ttle Higgins, albeit in a quite backhanded WY. “Goodbye, Professor Higgins,” she

intones before walking out on him in his mother’s drawing room. But in the play’s last scene, she returns to 27A Walpole Street with no explanation, and though we are skeptically confident that she has made the turn into independence, we are not heartened by Higgins’ last line, a playful “Where the devil are my slippers, Eliza?!!” Enough social commentary; now, about the performance itself. First of all, it was marred by a bunch of technical glitches, especially persistent problems with the actors’ microphones. The crackling and fading out of sound was easy to ignore during Higgins’ songs, where much of it was talking over the orchestra, but for crescendos like Freddy’s in “On the Street Where You Live,” the background noise was quite distracting. Now to the principals. Gary Kimble’s Henry Higgins was clearly the driving force behind this production; he stayed in character even to the encores at the end. He perfected the showing of contempt with body language, a tossing of the chin or the flick of a wrist. Leenya Rideout was a bit more tentative as Eliza Doolittte and seemed to be under the weather during some of her songs. ‘The only other notable performances came from the effervescent Scott Davidson as Doolittle Sr. and the angel-voiced James Roggenbeck as the crooning Freddy Eynsford-Hitl.

I personally believe that U2 is the most overrated band in the world. Sure, they’re excellent song writers and musicians but most people seem to think they’re fucking gods or something.

Hype, hype, hype. “Stay (Faraway So Close)” is the latest single from Zooropa, a poor excuse for a record. This song is pretty good, though. What isn’t good at ail is the ” I’ve Got You Under My Skin “ duet that is also present here, performed by Bono and Frank Sinatra. Sorry, but these guys just don’t go tom gether; the song sounds like absolute shit. You should carefully guard what remains of your integrity, Mr. Sellout Bono. There are other songs included here, like a stupid mix of “Lemon” and a lame live version of *‘Bullet the B/ue Sky.” What a fucking joke these guys are today. They exemplify a great band gone wrong, perfectly. Or is it only I who long for the days of “Pride” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday?”

by Nicholas MW Imprint stu&f 1 have decided over the last few months that soundtracks as a source of good music are completely under-rated. This compilation is another example of a good assemblage of music that was coupled with a movie that didn’t really break boxofice records, and thus didn’t get the attention it deserved. Whoever chose the artists and songs for the movie (and cassette) had some eclectic tastes, and the soundtrack really makes this apparent There is no flow, cohesion, or continuity as disparate artists are placed right after each other from start to end. The producer appears to relish these jarring changes, but they only serve to detract from the quality of this work as a whole. Rather than try to catalogue everything that’s on this, it should suffice to say that no matter what genre of music you like it’s probably here. Rockabilly, country, hardrock, dance, opera, lounge-lizard. It’s all here. Particularlygood is the workof Hans Zimmer who was responsible for the background music in the movie, most of which was orchestrated and included xylophones. He gets three tracks, and they are all strong and highly listenable. The suavest/slickest man in rock today, Robert Palmer, has the cut “(Love Is) The Tender

Trap”, which is a very Frank Sinatra-esque piece of lounge-lizardness. Not exactly my cup of tea, but not bad. Also impressive was the country “I Need A Heart To Come Home To” by Shelby Lynne. For the most part I don’t really like country, but I found myself singing along with this one.

The first song on Sarah Mclachlan’s latest album is called “Possession” which she wrote

By Greg Xmptint

about letters she received from an obsessive fan and listening to the album I can see why someone might get infatuated with her simply by listening to her music. Most of her songs deal ,with relationships and through her intense lyrics and music it almost feels like she is seducing the listener with her songs. Her rich voice comes through on each of the songs displaying her amazing range and a fullness which can send shivers (down your back. The lyrics on the tracks are very personal and moving, discussing all aspects of love and relationships from the obsessive desire in “Possession” to unfulfilled potential in “Good Enough” to the unquestioned passion of “Plenty.” The only less serious song is “Ice Cream,” where she compares someone’s love to ice cream. The music on the album complements her voice perfectly, continuing the sultry laid back feeling of the album. If I had one negative comment about Fumbling Toward’s Ecstacy, it would be that the music may be a bit too far in the background causing many of the songs to blend together a little too much. The highlights of the album are “Possession,” “Circle,” “Hold On,” and the title track “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy” which includes a bonus acoustic version of “Possession.” However, I think you miss something in just listening to one song on the album, as there is a cohesiveness in all the tracks that make them sound better when heard together. Overall, a very solid album: I don’t quite like it as much as her I99 I release Solace, but as that is one of my favourite albums of all time it would have been quite something for her to reach that level again so soon. When you consider that she is only in her early twenties you realize that Sarah McLachlan will be an important musical talent for many years yet to come.

I wonder ifthe inventors and pioneers in the field of synthesized dance music ever thought of this? Those who were busy with making disco records in the 7Os, technopop in the 8Os, and house music into the early 90s probably never gave much, if any, thought to their musical style being something not to dance to, but live with, even relax with. This attitude changed quite radically with the release of one very influential album indeed, that being Screamadelico by Primal Scream. Suddenly, and seemingly quite naturally, you could not only dance furiously to an album, but also drift into blissful sleep to the same work. Such an overwhelming new and innovative sound was inevitably going to produce m&y imitators, just as the Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine has produced a whole generation of shoegazer bands. Before the release of their album, this band was regarded by many as the natural successor to Bobby Gillespie and the boys, their album to be in effect Screamadelicu 2. The single “White Love” furthur reinforced this claim, and the already faithful waited eagerly for this album (myself included). After listening to it though, it seems that, while influenced heavily by the Primals, One Dove are, if possible, even more mellow and ambient than them. First off, this album is long. And the songs are very long; there are eleven tracks, one of which only lasts 60 seconds, leaving essentially ten tracks that span about 66 minutes. This excessive Iength unfortunately can make the listener lapse into fits of boredom, especially on the tracks “Sirens” and “My Friend.” And then there is a remix of “White Love” on here that lastsmore than ten minutes; I’m not sure there’s enough ideas in there to justify

continuation for that long. By way of explaining their sound, imagine Primal Scream and Enigma jamming together with Sarah Cracknell of St. Etienne on lead vocals, and mixed by the Cocteau Twins. On ‘iudes. Dorothy Allison’s voice pervades these tracks quite effectively, and furthur reinforces the relaxation effect here. Even with the dullness of some songs , I still have to recommend this album, for the simple reason that when it’s good, it’s absolutely brilliant. The single mix of “White Love” will surely be one of my favorite songs of ‘94, and the second UK single “Breakdown” is almost as good. Lead offtrack“Fallen” has weird quirky sounds bouncing from speaker to speaker, building to a crescendo of dancy fun (at least as One Dove go), all set to vocals that sound like “Justib My Love” without the silly rauchiness. “There Goes the Cure” is the ultimate in theraputic dreaminess, and utilizes the whistle sound from “Don’t Fight It. Feel It”, just to remind us where a lot of this came from. lf you need a stopover before the new Primal Scream album (due out in March), or you are a fan of any of the bands mentioned three paragraphs ago, then I would definitely recommend One Dove. Relaxation rarely sounds this good.

“I’m becoming everything I use to hate but I, I can’t go back there.” - Murk E Smith, 1980 Grotesque (After the Gromme) is undoubtedly one of the most enlightening records I’ve heard in a long time; enlightening in a strictly musical sense. After having been caught in up in atI of the Pavement hoopla, and getting only a vague sense of the Fall/Pavement connection, this re-release from I980 (originally released on Cog Sinister) has opened my eyes to exactly how (and I hate to say this) unoriginal Pavement really are. I still love Slanted and Enchanted, but it’s just so completely obvious where Steven Malkmus et al. are getting their ideas from. There’s the blatant musical correlation between songs such as “Conduit for Sale” (Pavement) and “New Face in Hell” (The Fall) but just the whole spoken/sung songs and the bizarre song titles are further indications of Pavement’s infiuence. Most of this album was recorded in one or two tikes, live in the studio, and as a result it lacks any smooth edges at all. Its ragged start/stop guitar, random noises for the most part, but surprisingly listenable because of the hypnotic rhythms that pervade the album. That’s not to say that the album doesn’t rock bells at times. The lead track”Pay Your Rates”and “In the Park” are as raw as any punk classic, and

Hater is one of those self-indulgent Seattle things. While I generally like most of the music characterised as grunge, I don’t have anything nice to say about this thing-y in particular. Hater is made up of two guys from Soundgarden (drummer and bassist), the former guitarist of Monster Magnet (is he not good enough to be in Monster Magnet?!) and three of their friends. They decided to do a side-project, and they called it Hater. Once they were done they riggered on looking for some indie label to distribute it. To their surprise (and this is where the story gets neatly

“The Container Drivers” contains both Mark E. Smith’s patented squeal and guitarist Craig Scanlon’s take on a rockabilly riff. Full of highlights from beginning to end (with only one track “W.M.C.-Blob 59” that can be considered expendable and self-indulgent), it’s the epic “The N.W.R.A.” that closes the album on a note of brilliance. As Smith claims that “The north will rise again” a mellow backdrop creates and eerie and foreboding environment that works with Smith’s ramblings. It’s that perfect juxtaposition of original and compelling music against Smith’s obsessions that makes this band so great. It’s as though some madman had just come off the street who had basically spent his past twenty years both reading poetry and learning how to be cynical and walked into a studio with a group of proficient but unaquainted musicians. The chances that these monkeys would come up with a work of Shakespearian sagacity are highly unlikely, but somehow it works. I guess I can’t blame Pavement, for after all, they have for sure built fantastic songs on The Fail’s minimalist foundation. But anyone who loves Pavement like I do deserves it to themselves, and to The Fall, to check this album out. sick) A&M picked it up. Whatwe’vegotas a result is thirty-one minutes of watery grunge, bad accoustic riffs, and a sticker on the outside that says “guys from some Seattle band.” Mock modesty? “Roadside” is whining and repetitive, the Cat Stevens cover “Mona Bone jakon” is boring and repetitive, and the single “Who Do 1 Kill?’ doesn’t live up to the intriguing title. If A&M has these one-album kind of deals to throw away, why don’t they at least throw them to some deserving dogs who might know what to do with them? I’m not sure why I’m even giving it a half point, maybe because if I gave it a zero it would make this atbum as bad as Billy Idol’s Cybefpunk. Don’t go to the alternative section of the local tape store and hand over 15 clams for this tape. Don’t look at the cheezy album cover of someguy with agun on top of psychadelic swirleys. Don’t read the proino that says that there aren’t any Black Sabbath riffs on the album (irrelevant anyway, since it couldn’t make the album any worse). Don’t support record companies that promote shit for the sake of a trendy sound. Don’t even read this review - I’ve just wasted a minute of your life. Sorry.

What do Roxette, Abba, and Ace of Base have in common? They come from Sweden, they sing in (almost) flawless English, they are successful even in North America, and they follow and copy the styles of their time. For ABBA in the 70s it was Disco. Roxette was {or is?) into pop, and Ace of Base is definitely dancey hip-hop. But who are Ace of Base? They are Malin, Jenny and big brother Jonas Berggren and Ulf (Bhudda) Ekkberg. In Europe they were already big last summer. Their hit singles “All That She Wants” and “Wheel of Fortune” quickly climbed to the top of the dance music charts in Germany and the UK in June. There the debut album of the band is called “Happy Nation.” The North American release is named “The Sign.” The sound of thegroup is simple and predictable. It’s computer music.

4-5 by B-Mellow special to Imprint After looking back at a relatively mediore year in terms of hip-hop, it is comforting to see a flicker of hope shine from the mounds of trash thrown upon us as of late. While many newcomers (and veterans) tried to portray a wannabe from the hood, gangsta image, the Souls stepped onto the scene with an authentic, rude boy image

and backed it up with a solid sounding product. Their beats throughout the album combine solid basslines atong with smooth, original jazzy samples to produce solid sounding melodies. The innovative, crafty rhyming style of the foursome is readily apparent as they bounce lyric after lyric off of each other throughout the various tracks. Their lyrical technique involves twisting common phases while maintaining a smooth, consistant flow only acheived by hip-hop masters such as Rakim and Big Daddy Kane. The whole album does not sound anything like the typical West Coast Sound created by artists such as Too Short or Cypress Hilt, but more like the type of sound currently coming out of New York City. The Souls of Mischief is a member of the Hieroglyphics crew and received production assistance from other members such as Domino, Del and Casual. The album is a sure shot for true followers of hip-hop as it combines traditional hip-hop with unique, original rhyming and production techniques. You gonna bounce ta this one!



engineered by synthesizer. Malin and Jenny do most of the singing. They have deep alto voices and just a tinge of a cute foreign accent. Occassionalfy Buddha tries some rap. That’s not so hot with the accent. Basically, Ace of Base are a good, solid and predictable hip-hop group. There is a good beat, you can dance to it’ and there is the occassional attempt at something a iittle different. It is no wonder that Ace of Base don’t just step into the footsteps of ABBA, but some of their songs like “Young and Proud” and “Waiting for Magic” have a distinct ABBA-Remix sound. “The Sign” strongly reminded me of childhood listens to Boney M. Trendy. Afterall, even the Twist and Fed Hall play remixes of ABBA. Who would have thought...Disco lives! Another interesting sound that Ace of Base have mixed to form their own can be heard on the song “Happy Nation” which begins with a haunting eerie intro reminiscent of Enigma. There is even a little taste ofthe multilingualism on”Voulezvous danser.” Of course, the lyrics are not exactly profound. There’s one particularly wonderful comparison: “My love is my engine and you might be fuel.” The image of a chug-chug train comes to mind. But since when have hip-hop lyrics been profound? (I mean’ there’s even a song called “Whaaaa!“) Ace of Base have chosen a genre where the words are secondary to the beat. Long live European hip-hop!

4, I994

By Rob Imprint

Just about anything can be released on CD these days, and this particular disc is proof. It is a compilation of b-sides (yeah, that’s ‘b’ for banal) from a group that hasn’t done anything interesting for nearly IO years (since the ‘Lament’ album). Back in the new wave days, Ultravox was a staple group of all those alternative people out there, but they are nearly all but forgotten now. This doesn’t mean Ultravox was an embarrassing, awful group though. They had their own sound which combined synthesizers (lots of ‘em) and synthesized percussion with traditional rock guitar, bass and drums. Although they were just an obscure act here, in England and parts of Europe they were regular superstars. And their success was justified as Ultravox was a group that stood head and shoulders above their nearest contemporaries with their creativity and technical skill. One thing that may have hurt Ultravox though was their lack of humour. All of their music was of a serious nature, and at its worst was melodramatic or pretentious. At least a group like the Pet Shop Boys manage to include some dry wit which helps relieve their deadpan delivery. Of this I7 track compilation, only about half of them are actually worth a listen (and a good number of these are live recordings featuring proper tracks from their albums). It’s simply a matter that most of their b-sides are boring. So many of them are drawn out, repetitive instrumentals which is a shame considering that they were a group capable of so much more. Although there are some gems buried in this collection “Herr X” and “Paths and Angles”, they are few and far between. And to think that the title suggests there is a ‘Rare 2’forthcoming, I only hope I can get that one for free as well.

Firstly, this is not new material from NoMeansNo. People attending previous NoMeansNo or Mr. Wrong (Rob Wright) concerts may have heard some of the material, especially the original version of “Forget Your Life” from the EP ‘The Day Everything Became Nothing’. The album was originally recorded in 1982, and only 500 copies were originally printed on vinyl, then a few hundred copies on tape reissued on cassette (mastered ofan actual record) which were sold on tour or by mail order. The pressing company which printed the albums went out of business, and as far as NoMeansNo knew, the original master tapes were scrapped. However, the masters have been

refound, so they decided to reissue it legitimately. They also decided to include a further four home recordings, the last four songs, which were released as a 7” EP a year or so before “Mama”, and which came to be known as “Betrayal, Fear, Anger, Hatred”, due to the words being scattered about the cover art work. The material on this release is performed by the Wright brothers, with Rob on bass, vocals, and guitars, and John on drums, vocals, key-

1 -5 By Chris Aldworth Imprint staf These guys haven’t had a hit album in a while and this new release is not going to change things. I really liked INXS when they put out Kick, way back in 1987. FuMMoon, Dirty Hearts is an attempt to get back to their rock and roll roots. They

boards, bells, and other percussion. Apparently, Andy Kerr hadn’t joined the band as guitarist when the album was recorded. As for the actual songs, most of them show off the jazz training of the band, especially “Living is Free”, with a lot of piano along with the bass and drums. Most of the rest is bass and drums, with Rob singing. The last four songs, excluding “Forget Your Life”, show a style that’s very different from later NoMeansNo releases. The sound is more like a beginning garage band than any NoMeansNo album I’ve ever heard, and they really bring down the quality of the album, hence a ‘3’ rather than a ‘4’. The original “Forget Your Life” features Rob’s boyish soprano, and would be best forgotten, if not for anthropological and historical reasons. (Apologies to Rob Wright for making fun of his liner notes). All in all, the best part of the album is NoMeansNo as a rhythm section. This is the way they first performed live, and for anyone that has seen a show, they put on a great one. it’s definitely worth the while of any NoMeansNo fan, much more than the previous “Live and Cuddly”. Here’s hoping for new releases from the band as soon as Andy Kerr gets sick of hanging out in Europe with his wife. (Don’tget me wrong, he should bring her along, not get rid of her).

wanted to put out an album with a stripped down sound. fNXS wanted to go back to the sound of their bar days in native Australia. I’ve got a news bulletin for you - no one knew who they were back then because their sound sucked, so only an idiot would bother going back to it. Full Moon, Dirty Heom is a disappointment to say the least. The first single “The Gift” is standard INXS fare and the title track is another single that rises slightly above the heap. The rest of the songs seem to run together into one lousy indecipherable pile. If you are a fan go out and buy this since it sounds like the last two shitty albums they released. Nowhere are the great orchestral meanderings of “Never Tear Us Apart” and it’s a shame. INXS hit their stride along time ago, stumbled, broke both legs and never quite recovered. Like a horse, INXS should have been put down a long time ago.
