t a ceremony in the William G. Davis ccntre last thursday, Bob Rae announced the donation of 25.2 million dollars to the University of Waterloo for the construction of a new Environmental Science and Engineering Building. The new building, which will probably be on the campus parking lot between the Earth Sciences and Engineering Buildings, will add 13,880 square metres of teaching and research space. In addition to housing the Risk Research Institute and the Waterloo Centre for Groundwater Research, the bwilding will also contain the environmental component of the Biotechnology Research Centre. It will also be the focus for four undergraduate programs: the Geological Engineering program, the Environmental Engineering program, the Environmental Science program, and the Environmental Hydro-geology program. The construction of the new building is expected to create over 375 jobs in the Waterloo Region. “This building will enable the University of Waterloo to do essential basic research, develop innovative technologies in the environmental sciences, and create new and valuable learning opportunities for students who will be employed in this important and growing field of study,” said Rob Rae. While UW president James Downey commented on the donation stating “This is a great day, a hallelujah day,” Federation of Students President Stephen Codrington was less optimistic about the future of university education in the province. “I’m excited about the building, but I’m concemedabout university education.

The remaining $6.3 million in capital costs and the estimated$7.5 million in operational and maintenance costs will come through other donations to Campaign Waterloo. Before Rae made the announcement, he was introduced by Mike Faman, MPP for Cambridge and Associate Minister of Education and Training. “Concern for the quality of our environment and the protection of our natural resources continues to grow,” said Farnan. “Through this investment, we are helping the University of Waterloo to enhance its ties with industry and to further its leadership role in the development and commercialization of new and innovative technologies that will hopefully lead to the improvement of the environment.” Despite the magnitude ofthe announcement, there was ex-

filled up with onlookers, there was little evident interest in the crowd. “We just came to see Bob,” said one fourth year science student who preferred to remain anonymous. “It’s j ust a way to get rc-elected,” said Mahnam Mortazavi, a UW graduate. Environmentally related projects are the primary focus for the research programs of over 100 researchers at UW. The Environmental Science and Engineering Building will be designed for interdisciplinary teaching and research in the faculties of science and engineering, taking into account, where possible, the interests of researchers in other faculties. Construction of the Environmental Science and Engineering Building is expected to begin in 1995-96 and should take 18 to 24 months to complete. The donation by the provincial government is divided into three major areas. $26.75 million is for construction of the building, $4 million for furnishings and equipment and $750,000 for alterations to vacated space.

OCUA models, accessibility, p,nd accountability. The harshest words of all were directed at the funding models, Model C in particular. Under this third model, the government would contract universities to offer certain programs. Money would be given out based on the perceived usefulness of the programs to the needs of society. Most universities have noticed what they believe to be a distinct bias OR the part of UCUA to the third model. “I don’t think you can deny that,” Downey charged the OCUA panel. Downey started the round of

opening remarks by expressing UW’s “decided” preference for the first funding model, the one closest to the present system. He stressed that he had concerns with both the second and third models. In the area of accessability, Downey argued that, “Accessibility is more than a matter of supply and demand. It is not how many can we get in, but how many should we get in.” Gail Cuthbert-Brandt was I-nOrG

Same Sex Rights Bill . Down But Not Out by Karen Zvanitajs Senior office of Student Issues


Ithough many Canadians have forgotten about the issues and emotions this past summer surrounding Bill- 167, some have not. For this reason, the Coalition for Equal Families has declared Saturday, October 29, 1994 a Provincial Day of Action. This day will act as a reminder to the public and MPP’s that samesex relationship rights must be recognized and brought back to the provincial agenda immediately. As well, these protests across the province will put pressure on the federal government with regards to dealing swiftly with the proposed amendments to the Canadian Human Rights Act, as well as Bill C-41 related to hate crimes. The theme of the day will focus on demanding same-sex legal rights, mostly those contained in the original Bill- 167. In May of this year, Attorney Marion Boyd introduced legislation which would have provided samesex couples with the same rights and obligations as opposite-sex couples. If passed, the legislation would have amended provincial laws which pro-

vide benefits and responsibilities based on.spousal status in compliance with the Charter ofRights and Freedoms. It also wouId have redefined “spouse” to include any two people who live together in a conjugal relationship, regardless of their sex. Laws with regard to survivor pensions, inheritance, hospital visitation rights, power of attorney and adoption would also have been changed to include same-sex

“Same sex

relationship rights must be recognized. ” couples. These proposed amendments were the focus of much debate both in the government and in the public. The 9th of July saw the narrow defeat in the second reading of Bill- 167. All throughout the readings, the debate and the questions, the Coalition forEqua FamiIies fought endlessly and tirelessly in support

of Bi II- 167. Massive fax campaigns, protests, speeches, phone calls and organizational meetings occurred virtually 24 hours a day up until the defeat of the bill. This organization and many, many individuals did not quickly forget the terrible blow that struck them on June 9, 1994. Protests, demonstrations and angry voices raged on long afterwards. Queer communities and events like Gay Pride Day, which attracted hundreds of thousands of supporters across the country, have reminded Ontario that this is not an issue that will go away. The Day of Action on October 29 will serve the same purpose - to remind Canadians that these proposed amendments will provide equal rights to ALL couples. These are not the voices of a few individuals or a fringe group. Instead, they are the voices of a growing belief and community. To deny this group equal rights is discriminatory. Please support this day by coming to the front of Kitchener City Hall on King Street. Events will start at 2:00 p.m. For more information please contact the Office of Student Issues at ext.6305, the Womyn’s Centre at ext. 3457 or GLLOW at 884-4569.

AncillarvlFee Update by Stephen Noel Imprint staff “Optimizing revenue from ancillary enterprises” in the wake of tightening provincial government transfer payments to universities was the thrust of Council of Ontario Universities’ recommendations in February of 1992. Some universities acted swiftly, raising fees for student services to unheard of levels in Canada in recent years. University of Guelph students signed an agreement with their school freezing ancillary fees for five years, but referendums can be held where students can approve increases in ancillary fees to prevent cuts in services. The University of Waterloo Ancillary Fee Committee (AFC) was set up in the spring of 1993 to investigate alternate sources of funding for lost government funding. In March of this year, the AFC recommended establishing a Student Services Advisory Committee (SSAC) to make in-depth studies of student services. It was determined that 2/3 of service fees could be supplemented by alternate sources of income. 1992/ 1993 estimates put this figure at $2.6 million. Several days later, the Rae government announced a freeze on ancillary fees backed up with a dollar for dollar reduction in transferpayments to universities choosing to ignore the ban. The Minister of Education and Training then distributed guidelines for review committees which the Ontario University Students Alliance claims would go a long way to “helr, student bodies establish

themselves in a consultative role where little or none existed before.” Not only is the involvement of a strong central student government in committee activities highly desirable, it is emphasized as a crucial factor in ensuring fairness to all services under review. Tkbe first service under the scrutiny of the SSAC also has the largest expenditures: athletics. Government transfer payments to universities *were never meant to cover student services deemed nonessential in obtaining a degree, including the Campus Centre, theatres and art galleries,and the English Language Proficiency Program (ELPP). Since its first meeting in August, the business of the SSAC has picked up, now meeting every two weeks. In addition to reviewing the adequacy of student services, the SSAC is also looking into establishing ancillary fees as both OSAP eligible and tax deductible. UW Federation of Students President Steve Codrington recently verified that the agenda proposed in late winter of this year for the SSAC remains intact. “The responsibility is there ” for government agencies to fund services such as personal counselling and community he&h nurse activities on campus. The Fed President told Imprint that an anticipated 20% recovery of ancillary fees from user-pay has proven to be “unrealistic.” Part-time students pay 30% of the undergraduate rate. The yearly rate for grads, with adjustments for user pay on thle ELPP and career counselling is the same as the undergrad rate even though the grads are on campus three terms per year compared to two terms per for m year undergrads.

already performing well.” In her remarks, CuthbertBrandt stressed the contributions and accomplishments of the faculty in the area of scholarly research and the application of that research. She argued that thcsc accomplishments started off with no outside capital, and continued for a long time with no support. Cuthbert-Brandt also praised the ColIaboration between the federated colleges, UW, and Wilfrid Laurier University. Model B, in her opinion, “Left much to be desired. It is an impediment to collaboration.” Model C, she feared, “Has the potential to pit university against university, college against university, and college against college.” The government has conflicting wants, in Cuthbert-Brandt’s opinion. They seek more control, but at the same time desire what they call a free-market response to the issue of funding. John Sweeney prefaced his remarks, saying, “We are not here to plead for more money.” As the representative of the KW community, Sweeney stated that, “This community values its relationship with its universities,” He argued that this region is one of the five strongest economitally in the province, a result of that community-university relationship. “Ontario has been described as the engine of Canada, and this region has been the engine of Ontario.”

Sweeney also addressed the issue of teaching and research. He stated that the university does not exist just to teach, but that for innovation research is important. He pointed out that in Ontario. one auarter of aliresear’ch is done by universities. Sweeney went on to express his “great reservations about the potential impact of Model C.” According to Sweeney, Model C reduces the ability ofthe university for decision making, shifting much of the decision making to the govemment. “Queen’s Park is not as capable of making de-

cisions,“he argued. The other negative effect of Model C, in Sweeney’s opinion, would be to limit the ability of Downey goes students to enrol anywhere, at any college or university, and still get into any course. “I am extremely disappointed with the tone of this paper,” Jim Brox began his comments. Brox maintained that OCUA had ignored the positive points of

Imprint, Friday, October 2 1, 1994



the current system, which allows flexibility to meet changing needs. Model B, Brox argued, had been tried before and had failed. He attacked the notion of Model C

He argued that in order to have up-to-date teaching, the teacher must be involved in current research. Any attempt to de-emphasize research would weaken education in Ontario. S t e v e Codrington’s first comment was to state that, “Unlike Mr. Sweeney, I have no qualms about asking for more money.” Although everyone present laughed, Codrington later indicated that his remark was not done totally in jest. “It’s sad that it was taken as a joke, that I asked for more money.” Codrington suggested that improving quality teaching, not making changes to funding, was the best way to for bonus points with OCUA Chair maintain quality in the current being a free-market model, claimeconomic environment. He proing Model C to be more inefficient. posed greater student involvement in teacher selection. OCUA’s statements on teachThe overlap of course material ing and research were Brox’s next between OAC’s and first year target. He criticised the “superficourses should also be examined, cial nature of OCUA’s background Codrington argued. research.”

The final speaker, Sharon Adams, President of the Staff Association, addressed the side effects of funding cuts on the health of staff members. She pointed out that the loss of 75 full time positions has meant an increase in workload, and an aclclompanying increase in stress levels. “A diminished workforce can only lead to diminished quality,” she argued. Time constraints prevented two UW representatives from speaking, as the hearing moved on to a discussion period. Joy Cohnstaedt, Chair of the OCUA panel, stressed that OCUA had no bias towards any funding model. The panel asked several times for suggestions on how Model A, the current system, could be improved. This approach seemed to take the UW pan4 by surprise. “I think the one thing that surprised me a bit was that the OCUA people wanted to distance themselves from Model C,” commented Downcy, “In that sense WC were caught off guard, we weren’t ready.” The surprise meant that UW had very few c;oncretc suggestions to offer the panel. “We weren’t as helphI as we might have been,” admitted Downey, “the question now is do we want to do a followup?” In the end, Downey believes the hearing went well. “I think it’s wrong to beat up on OCUA,” said Downcy, “they must be finding it harder and harder to find an aiternative that works better than what we have today.”

Your mission, should you choose to accept it by Heather White special to Imprint


he President has established a Commission on Institutional Planning to shape a new plan for UW’s development. The first task of the Commission is to review the University mission statement. The mission statement clearly specifies the unique aims and aspirations of the University as it is felt and understood by faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of UW. Consultation with all these groups is vital to this process. The student population is of major concern because they are at the centre of our “mission” and yet can be the most difficult group to survey. At this time we invite your suggestions and opinions on UW’s current mission statement as set out in the report Planning for the Fourth Decade. Please submit your comments to any member of the Commission by the first week of November.

(The University offers professional studies in Accountancy, Actuarial Science, Architecture, Engineering, Optometry, Psychology and Urban and Regional Planning. It does not offer professional programs in Business, Education, Law and Meditine. The need for those programs is met by other universities in the Ontario system.) - To offer specialized education in traditional as well as in emerging disciplines in the Arts and in the Pure and Applied Sciences, in programs which combine rigorous study in the discipline with a broad and critical presentation ofthe place of the discipline in the field of hu-

The mission of the University of Waterloo is focussed, and it is different from the missions ofthe other universities in Ontario. It is distinctive in terms of both what the University has chosen to do and what it has chosen not to do. Waterloo’s



1. To engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching and in research in traditional and contemporary fields of study, and as part of these tasks:

To foster the intellectual and development of its students, both within the academic programs and outside of the curriculum, and in this way help them to become responsible, enlightened, and cultured individuals.


While most of the foregoing points are appropriate as the mission statements of many universities, the ones which follow are less common. Taken together they define a distinctive mission for the University of Waterloo. 3. To maintain an active institutional role in promoting the economic accessibility of all its programs to qualified applicants, as well as the subsequent employabil-

ity of graduates from all these programs, and to these ends to offer the Co-operative Education format in all the academic programs in which it is feasible. 4. To provide leadership in the development and application of moderncomputing and communications technologies in all aspects of university activity, and particularly to promote excellence in student computing - both in instruction and in scholarship - by providing all students with the opportunity to develop appropriate critical competence in computing. 5. To make its programs as widely accessible as possible to mature students and to special student populations, and to offer a range of high-quality distance courses and degree programs for students with limited access to the Waterloo campus.

f you’re in fourth year, you’ll probably want to scream the next time someone asks you that ever popular question, “What are you going to do when you graduate?” For most graduating students, this creates a flurry of confusion and anxiety as the “real world” looms on the horizon. Uncertainty over job prospects and preoccupation with acceptance to grad school intensifies the tension level of students already pushed to the limit. If you’re feeling flustered in your endeavour to make critical post-graduate life decisions, here’s some information you might find helpful. Ifyou’ve decided to seek employment, you must be innovative in yourjob search. All graduating students can participate in the Graduating Student Employment Service. The Employment Network, a weekly bulletin containingjobs for graduating students and alumni, is posted outside the Co-op office in Needles Hall. Other job search strategies include !ooking in the company directories and employer files located in the Career Resource Centre and consulting

be. It’s obvious that universities represent a very substantial public investment, both by us and a very significant investment by the economy. I think it’s reasonable to suggest that there needs to be some assurance that what universities are doing matters to the rest of the economy, and matters to students and provides students with the training that they require. It’s also important for us to recognize that if that education becomes too narrow, it may train someone for a job next year, but it won’t necessarily train someone for a job in five years. So universities are always going to be emphasizing, to me, teaching students how to learn, giving them more a sense of an inquiry, teaching them how to learn on the job. More and more people are going to be going back to university for refresher courses. The notion that there’s a four year period where you store up all this knowledge and that lasts you for a lifetime is an antiquated idea.

Premier Bob Rae The Imprint Interview


he past four years have not been easy for Bob Rae. Almost immediately after his party’s astonishing election win, Rae fell onto hard times. Starting with the resignation of Peter North, seven more of Rae’s cabinet members either resigned or were removed from office. To make matters worse, during Rae’s term in office, he has lost the support of many labour members as well as smaller women’s groups and environmental groups. Since Rae never really had any support from the business community, his support has been slowly eroding since his win, All of this culminated in his visit to the Toronto Stock Exchange last week where in the middle of his speech, Rae was booed off the floor, and was forced to retreat. Rae’s reception at the University of Waterloo was more dignified than his aforementioned visit to the TSE. His announcement that the Ontario government would donate $25 million to the University under the Jobs Ontario program was well received by both University President James Downey and Campaign Water100 Chairman Matthew Barrett. During the last few months of Rae’s first term of office (and quite possibly his last) the issue of restructuring University funding has been suddenly pushed into the limelight. The Ontario Council on University Affairs’ paper entitled “Sustaining Quality Education in Changing Times” as well as Human Resources Development minister Lloyd Axworthy’s Social Security Reform paper have both forced the university community into facing the fact that severe shortages may be forthcoming, and that a restructuring of how Ontario pays for universities is at hand. Imprint talked briefly with Premier Rae on some of thcsc issues last week during his visit to Waterloo. Imprint: The NDP government have to face a lot of difficult about restructuring university

is going to decisions funding.

The building that was announced today is an Environmental Science and Engineering building, and engineering is undoubtedly one of the most important faculties here at Waterloo. However, you mentioned that we want to train people for jobs in five years. How does this building fit into that agenda? Environmental research might be big now, but some see it as a passing thing.

‘There’s always going to be a relationship market. *I What sort of things are you going to keep in mind as you make your choices about how universities change? Rae: I think underfunded universities are something that we always have to work through. I think the critical thing is that we don’t want to do any-thing that’s going to discourage students from staying in University. I just think of the number of students that I meet that say, well I’m taking a year off or I’m taking six months off or I’m taking five or six or seven years to complete my undergraduate education, and I think that’s something we have to become aware of; that if tuition fees are raised too much, the impact is going to be negative. One of the ideas that’s been suggested is an income-contingent program. Do you think that such a program could work for Ontario? Well that’s one of the reasons why we encouraged a conference to be held on income contingency: in order to allow those issues to be heard and to hear from a range of students, I think it’s fair to say students are divided on the issue. But do you think idea?

Well, we haven’t detided. Whatever we do, we have to do in conjunction with

the federal government. Their transfers to us, in terms of universities, is a significant source ofmoney. What the federa government seems to be saying is that they’re going to be getting out of that. That’s part of the Liberal plan. If the Liberal plan is for the federal government to get out of it, then clearly we have to sit down with students from the universities and from representatives of the business community and everybody, _and _.say now_. how are we all going to respond to this policy on part of the federal government. I personally think that it’s wrong for the national government to do anything unilaterally without having to come to terms with what that could mean for access, for research and development and so on.

I don’t think so at all. I think that we’re looking at. . .for example in the work that we do overseas, we know that environmental technologies, improving anti-pollution devices in factories, improving sewage treatment, very basic things, things that we in some ways take for granted, these are huge challenges for the economies in developing countries. The more rapidly these countries industrialize, the more critical these issues will be. I don’t think we’re talking about some absolutist conservationist, environmental agenda. I don’t think we’re talking about that, we’re talking about the relationship between the environment and the economy and the need to create that linkage for use to see that there are real opportunities as well as challenges. *L

One thing that some students are worried about is that with more corporate involvement, the shift is going to be towards the marketplace and perhaps away from what are considered academic pursuits. Do you think that the balance might tip in favour of something more like the co-operative education we have here? There’s always going to be a relationship betweenunivcrsities

heard speakers calling for solidarity against the Reform Party. “If they call us special interest groups, then lets group our special interests,” one speaker said. “If they pick on us, then let’s pick on them.” Sherie Macdonald of the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics compared Reform’s policies to those pursued by American presidents. The U.S. claims to want world peace, she said, but it pursues this goal by waging war. In the same way, the Reform Party claims to want the equality of individuals, but it pursues this goal by creating division. “Gays are not asking for special rights,” she said. “They only want Dan Akroyd equal rights.” She went on to state that corporate taxes have fallen from 50 per cent of the tax load in 1965 to 10 per cent today, pointing out that there is an alternative

to the spending cuts proposed by Reform.

Fraser Death from the Fraser special to Imprint



study recently released by the Van couver-based think-tank the Fraser Institute suggests that tomake Canada strong, we must make Ottawa weak. It states that local communities should have much more power to tax, spend, and set their own economic policies, and that transfers of public funds between regions should stop. In such a system, hundreds of small govemments would fall over each other to provide their residents with good services for the taxes they pay. Inefficient or big-spending governments would simply lose their citizens and businesses and thus their tax base. When governments compete like this, they intrude less into the economy and make citizens happier with the political systkm. Tf citizens are happy, there is less of a tendency for the country to break up. Gordon Tullock is the author ofthe study, entitled “The New Federalist,” A world-renowned expert on goverment efficiency, he explains what competition between government means: “Competition is something that people associate with private enterprise. For example, if consumers do not like the price of shoes at one store, they can take their business to another store. This power to choose where to shop gives consumers enormous power and keeps prices low. Governments, however, don’t feel this pressure from voters because voters have trouble shopping elsewhere for government services.”

Institute says to Federalism

Governments don’t feel this pressure because voters have trouble shopping elsewhere for government services





easily compare the government services they receive with that of their neighbours. When leaders do not respond by providing better services, residents can vote with their feet by moving elsewhere. Tullock explains that “It is very hard for a school board to give little Johnny a shoddy education when schools run by a neighbouring govcrnment are doing better. What happened in Ontario is a good example of what happens when you ignore this principle. As the public school system became more centralized, parents were deprived of information on how their schools were performing. Province-wide testing fell out of favour with public officials and parents lost their only means of grading the schools. The provincial tests were an embarrassment to politicians because some regions did more poorly than others and parents wanted to know why. With power concentrated in Queen’s Park, it was easy to stifle such protests by stifling the information that fuelled the protests.” Tullock warns that “Decentralization is not something that special interest groups are

If Canadians could shop for their govemments the way they shop for shoes, they would get leaner, more efficient government which in turn contributes to an efficient private sector. Government directs roughly half the country’s wealth, yet when competitiveness in Canadian business is discussed, there is little mention of the importanceofefficient government. An inefficient, unproductive govemment sector will pass its costs onto business and labour, resuiting in stunted comp&tiveness.” Tullock suggests that Canadians could better shop for their gover ments if local communities had more power to tax and spend with provincial and federa1 governments having much less power. A small government that does not give its citizens the services they expect for the taxes they pay risks losing citizens and its tax base - to neighbouring communities offering a better mix of taxes and services. Citizens living in small communities have access to more information and can

going to like very much. It is difficult to quietly drain public resources in a small community, because everyone can see what they are up to.” “The New Federalist”: explodes the myth that we need strong central governments to coordinate public works projects or to give us a sense of national pride. “For over a hundred years, Canadians have been fed the myth that government built this country and that without plenty of power at the top, things would not run. The reality suggests that power is too concentrated and that governments have abused this power. Canadians pay ever-larger taxes for diminishing government services. We do not see such abuses in countries like Switzerland, which is a union of more than twenty semi-independent states, with a weak central government.” Tullock warns that it is important to pay attention to the details of how you decentralize: What you do not want to do is give the local communities lots of power to tax and spend but at the same time promise any community that acts foolishly and squanders its tax dollars that Ottawa will come racing in on the white charger of equalization payments. Equalization payments cut the link between what a politician does and what he achieves. An inefficient, corrupt leader who ruins his community with high taxes and senseless regulations gets his mistakes pampered over by Ottawa. Wise leaders who help make their community wealthy see this wealth taken away and given to badly-run communities.”

Common Assaults on the Rise in Canada from UW Security special to Imprint ommon assault is a crime that has been on the rise in Canada for mare than a decade. This trend is particularly alarming because it accounts for more than ha1 f of all violent offenses. It is also of importance because with the high number of offenses comes a greater concern from the public over the degree of violence in society* In 1988 for example, 43% of the Canadians interviewed for the General Social Survey claimed that violent assault was the crime they most feared. In reality however, violent offenses such as common assault only account for a small percentage of the Criminal Code offenses. Over a seven year period, from 1985 to 199 1, violent offenses averaged 237,336 offenses per year. This number represents 9-7% of all Criminal Code offenses which average 2,452,966 per year. Within the category of violent offence, common assault averaged 132,167 which is roughly 56% of all violent


offenses. With the general concern involving violent offenses, citizens are in search of information which may help protect them against such a crime. Information such where they are most likely to be assaulted, when, and by whom is of vital

Between 1974 and 1992, the rate of adults charged with violent offenses rose from 272 adults charged per 100,000 to 6 12 adults charged per 100,000. This is a 125% increase.

Fortunately for everyone, things have calmed down since August. The last month of the summer term saw increases in Break, Enter and Thefts (23 reported, compared to 12 in July), Motor Vehicle Accidents (17 reported, compared to 12 in July), Physical Assaults (14 reported, compared to 9 in July), Medical Emergencies (72 reported, compared to 61 in July), Domestic Disputes (20 reported, compared to 14 in July), and False Fire Alarms (72 reported, compared to 59 in July). Now a new term has started, and to go along with the usual business of attending to a busy campus, Security Officers have to deal with some people who may be new to campus life, and unaware of some of the risks. There has been one charge of Sexual Assault already this year. The victim was assaulted while on a bus during Frosh Week. Already this year, 34 bicycles have been stolen.

If you’re thinking of trying it, don’t bother. If you are caught, you can expect to have your license confiscated, and there is amandatory court appearance. There is no set fmeforthisoffence, but you can expect something in the area of $100. There have been several other incidents on campus this term, and they all show lots of stupidity. The vending machines in DC have been vandalised repeatedly. Most of the time, nothing is even stolen, they merely get battered or knocked over. What’s the point?

Campus Security is glad to have two new Help Lines on Campus this term. These are located on the path between Vl and V2. However, the lines are being abused. There have been 8 “push and Run”‘s already. People, every time the button is pushed, an officer will be dispatched to the site. There.

The second i tern definitely goes in the “Weirdos” file. A man wearing an Halloween mask and boxer shorts jumped out of some bushes along the footpath by St. Jerome’s, grunted at an extremely startled student, and ran away. No one was attacked or injured, but you should be alert if you are walking in areas with lots of bushes. The final item is my nice feelgood ending. Laurier’s campus security caught some Laurier students returning to campus one night with some patio umbrellas stolen from our very own Fed Hall! Laurier Security returned the umbrellas and are dealing with the offenders. An excellent example of inter-university cooperation. Thanks guys, and keep up the good work.

n an annual basis, the prov inces receive a large por tion oftheir PSE (Post Secondary Education) transfer in the form of tax points tinds that are transferred from the federal government’s revenue to the provinces. In essence, as the economy increases, the provinces tax points also accumulate, bringing in greater revenue per annum. Unfortunately, the federal transfers do not increase, causing the cash component to decrease. It is on this premise that Axworthy calculated the eventual “drying out” of the federal reserve in ten years time if it remains at the present level. The most noticeable change in this decrease will begin to appear in 1996- 1997. Axworthy has proposed that Ottawa replace these provincial transfers with a new system of income contingent loans, an action that entails students to be responsible for the brunt of their educational costs. According to the Financial Report of Ontario Universities for the year 1992-93 the government df Ontario contributes 73.1%, and tuition fees bring in 21.4% of the income for universities. This 73.1% is shared between both the federal (Transfer points) and provincial government. Axworthy suggests a cutting of the federal transfer points, representing a 30% reduction in provincial transfers. The proposed problem is to allow tuition fees to double; tuition fees are estimated to rise from 37.3 million to 74.6 million = tuition fees covering 4 1.7% of universi ty costs. As the direct cash payments from federal reserves run about $ 2.6 billion of Ottawa’s $8 billion dollar budget, the provinces face doubling tuition fees or tuition deregulations: allowing universities to set their own tuition rates. One example of the effects of deregulation is seen in Queen’suniversity’s decision to set its own tuition fee for its MBA program (over 20,000 per annum). The Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA) originally proposed the idea of income contingent loans more than four years ago. The original OUSA proposition was to deal with present problems, not the future costs of higher Unfortunately, Lloyd education. Axworthy tainted and reworded the original OUSA recommendations in order to pass the income contingent loan program as his own outlook for the fLture. Axworthy suggests the following: Loan repayments are taken out

of graduates salaries after their education is complete. Axworthy suggests that repayable loans match the graduate’s ability to repay, depending on income. Graduates would repay the loans as they develop the financial means to do so. One example of the income contingent plan is deductions from pay - - cheques each month until loan is repaid. Both Australia and New Zealand adhere to this principle and both countries report a high success rate.

Although on the surface, the RRSPs look like an ideal solution, they are far from one.

Firing Line





n this issue, we have the tenth letter regarding the “The Parking Lot is Full” comic. Over the last three issues, the comic has raised various comments regarding journalistic responsibility. Surprisingly, the letters came out almost equal on the issue of whether or not the comic should have been printed. I am glad that some discussion has taken place, but in the end, it all seems a little excessive for a simple comic, On the other hand, last week’s feature article, which was also the cover story, has received NO letters to the editor this week. I find this somewhat disturbing. The feature outlined, with a fairly detailed description, the fact that HIV has never been out and out proven to cuuse AIDS. In that feature, Craig and I essentially call Health and Safety, along with every major newspaper and television station one of two things: idiots or liars. Either they report that HIV causes AIDS without investigating it far enough, or they actually know that it has never been proven to cause AIDS. In the first case they are idiots (or at the very least, derelict in their duty to their readership/viewing public) and in the second case, liars. This didn’t really come as much of a surprise, since I had much the same experience with my Michael Coren interview. In that interview, Coren, easily one of Canada’s premiere satirists and biographers, slammed various feminists and some Toronto columnists. When I say slammed, I mean literally called for their heads. Again, no reaction came from the University community. While I fmd this frustrating to no end, I am not so pompous as to be angered that the University community is not reading my material. However, I fmd the fact that more attention is paid to a cartuon than a major investigative piece somewhat annoying. This leads me to one of two cunclusions: either the University population is comprised of mostly illiterate fools, or. , . Or what? What would be the other reason? People simply aren’t interested in AIDS? This is definitely one possibility. The feature was timed so it would appear in the issue of Imprint following AIDS week, and it is possible that people were tired of reading about AIDS. But the only conclusion to draw here is that people would eventually get tired of anything. Their attention spans have been shortened by television and the pace of life in the late twentieth century to such a degree that if I announced tomorrow that there never was a moon landing, people wouldn’t really care. What to do, what to do? Perhaps I will reprint the article once again, only this time, commission the Parking Lot is Full artists to draw a cartoon of an AIDS patient, lesions and all. Or perhaps I could use a large headline reading SEX and then a smaller headline reading “now that I’ve got your attention. . .” I’m really at a loss as to how to generate the response that indicates I’m reaching the university population.

MediatedThoughts: The Cult of Gem X I

t’s really no wonder so many people in their early twenties hate the name Generation X. The tag doesn’t even apply to them, for one thing. As terminology, it first appeared in a 1964 story written by Charles Hamblett and Jane Deverson about the fight between Mods and Rockers at the seashore resort town of Clacton, England on the Easter Bank holiday. For an illustration, check out the movie of the Who’s Quadruphenia, released in 1979, when someone now twenty-one was only six years old. The awkward appellation was also in use during the first reign of punk in the late ‘70’s, when Billy Idol got a hold of it for his then new band. This should scare off anybody; look what happened to him, a pathetic junkie trying to make up for the lost time of another pathetic junkie and drunk, Jim Morrison. Way to go Billy, proof that the California sun and smog shrink your brain to minuscule proportions. If Mr. Idol ever gets out of detox, maybe he can play with ail the other has-been losers at Lulu’s. I can’t say that I blame anyone who hates the G-phrase. Maybe Vancouver writer Douglas Coupland should take part of the saint blame. It was his 1991 book that brought the phrase out of hibernation to haunt us all, keeping us awake all night, swearing we’d never use the phrase in publit. For a story that is supposed to signify the 90’s it looks suspiciously like the 80’s to anyone not on the fast track. Change locales from Palm Springs to Banff or Whistler for

a Canadian perspective. It really isn’t that different. Never underestimate one pertinent fact of the story, never trust anyone under thirty who permanently lives in a resort town.

I am comforted to know that this alienated youth represents one of Canada’s leaders of tomorrow. A more realistic portrayaI of the plaid and flannel lifestyle can be found in Richard Linklater’s 1991 independently produced film SEacker. The film’s thesis, “Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy,” is mumbled by X-er icon Michael Stipe, in REM’s “What’s the Frequency Kenneth.” The film is a study of the intersecting lives of young adults who missed or declined admission to the gravy train of the greedy eighties. The conspiracy theorists, pot-heads and the owner of Madonna’s pap smear are all distinctly creatures of the decade morality forgot. Linklater’s sophomore effort&&& and Confused is an update of 1973’s American Gra$&i, this time chronicling the last day of school in 1976. The 14 year old entering high school that year would now be 32, about the same age as the film’s creator.

e all know what’s coming, and coming soon: massive tuition hikes. Understandably, this is of great concern to students, and has caused much uproar. Unfortunately, there is an excessive amount hysteria and bickering surrounding tuition increases, so one must take a step back and examine what the truly important issues are. A Canadian university degree is currently one of the cheapest deals in the world. The tuition cost is negligible compared to a university education in many other countries, and to the titure earnings that one can provide. Graduated and soon-to-be graduating students have been very fortunate to pay SOlittle for so much. However, the harsh reality of the Canadian governments’ fiscal mess can no longer be ignored. Government university funding has been and will continue to decrease; tuition fees will continue to increase. This is an unavoidable fact. However, contrary to the hysterical claims of student special-interest groups, tuition increases will not “seriously damage the post-secondary education system in Canada.” Rather than bemoan a grim future ofincreased fees, student groups should be working with the government to devise a new system to replace the disappearing status quo. Nothing these groups can do will stop or even slow the decrease in government tiding. Although tuition will necessarily rise, it is absoltctely critical that access to a university education increases rather than decreases.

The latter argument

thus she has hung a small version of the Croatian flag from the rearview mirror of our car. On Thursday October 13 someone happened to notice this object in my car, that I parked in Lot C on Campus. They were obviously displeased with seeing this symbol of pride for my family so visibly exposed. They decided to display their displeasure by sticking two notes on my car. The first piece of paper they stuck on the driver side window and thus I saw it first. It proclaimed “KRV-RAT%.A? You’re in Canada looser; take the Nazi flag off! Never Again!” For those of you who do not understand, the first word is the spelling of Croatia misprinted so that it reads “blood” and “war.” The second sticker was of a no smoking symbol and was placed on the opening of my gas tank with the words “NEVER AGAIN!” and “NO USTASHI!” written on it. Again Ustashi is a word that many of you probably don’t know and arises out of past history. It was the term that people gave Croatians who rebelled against communism and sought democracy in World War II. Just because I am Croatian does not mean that T have a hatred to Serbiansoranyoneofanotherbackground. If I was German would you make the assumption that I must be racist to Jewish people as a result of W.W. II? The problems that are happening over seas in the former Yugoslavia are there -not here. Serbians are killing Croatians and Croatians are killing Serbians. It is a war and no one will come out the winner. I could claim that I have a right to be racist because my family back

individuals with college and university degrees: those who Iackthem will be unemployed, save for the few who manage to find career jobs at Taco Bell or Zehrs. All jobs that don’t require will be replaced by machines. The bank teller of today will be replaced by the ATM designers and service people of tomorrow. Consequently one can draw a direct connection between the enrolment at colleges and universities now with the employment rate years down the road. Access to post-secondary education can be provided with an improved student loans program, which must guarantee money to any student accepted to an institution. Loans cannot be based on other factors, such as sex, race, or the relative wealth of one’s parents: access must be completely equal. To do otherwise would put groups at a disadvantage and alter the demographics of the f&ure labour force. Obviously special cases which affect the costs of living, such as disabilities, would be taken into account. Most opponents of the “increased loans” solution to the tuition problem claim that one cannot expect students to suffer “lifelong debt” for their education. However, students can afford to go into debt, or further into debt than they do currently, for the purpose of attaining a degree. Such debts are hardly “lifelong.” When one considers the tremendous earnings potential that a post-secondary degree offers, one not only realizes that paying a debt won’t be a tremendous problem, but that perhaps the student shodd face more financial burden that he currently does. Since when is an Actuarial Science or Engineering graduate unable to afford loan repayment? Currently they t&e their governmerit-funded education and make them-

Incidents like this do not cause the flag to come down but only to fly higher.

Parking #lo


To the Editor, Regarding your cartoon, “The Parking Lot is Full” (Sept. 23), and the subsequent feedback and flak you took for it. I am surprised that in a University community, people are so unwilling to have a diversity of views expressed. Surely the way to eradicate hurtful ideas and behaviours from our society is not

Good selves wealthy with it. Graduates can afford to pay off increased debts; they merely don’twant to. It may mean buying a new car five rather than three years after graduation. It does not mean a lifetime of debt and poverty. income contingent loan repayment insures that one will not suffer real hardship but rather merely a ternporary reduction in luxuries. The immediate student reaction to tuition hikes is Hell No! I personally don’t relish the thought of spending more money. However, one must examine the situation rationally, and observe: tuition must rise, access must be maintained for the sake of our Future economy, and tuition debts do not spell the end of the world. Increased debt load for education should not be seen as a new, cruel hardship, but rather as the end to a long, unsustainable free ride that previous graduates enjoyed. Some believe that professionals are rendering a benefit to society, by paying taxes on their income and generally improving the quality of life with their services, and that therefore society should subsidize their education. However, I would argue that professionals pursue their degrees for their personal benefit and wealth rather than society’s, Furthermore, if somebody truly wishes to be a doctor, lawyer, or accountant to benefit society, surely they wouldn’t object to forgoing some luxuries to be less of a drain on public spending. One can be optimistic about tuition increases, if they are to be implemented correctly, If students contribute more of the university’s budget, theoretically the school will be more accountable to us. We are the university’s clients and as such should play a more active role in its administrative affairs and decision-making. When students

Therefore, I think it rather presumptuous for everyone to assume the cartoon is advocating violence against women. Also, the cartoon clearly mocks the man’s ignorance.

Putting Kids Into Bondage by Jeff Imprint


degree the paper also spells out some of COU’s ideas about what an Ontario-based ICLR should look like. The paper’s recommendations are:


everal centuries ago, children could be sold into slavery for their parent’s debt, and others who couldn’t pay off their loans went to prison. In our more enlightened time, students who can’t pay their debts default, and either are hounded by the government or go bankrupt. The solution to student debts? Income contingent loan repayment plans (ICLRs), according to a number of governments and student organisations. With the current system student debts are paid back on a fixed scale at a fixed rate: a normal bank loan. ICLRs change that to vary payments according to the student’s ability to pay. And the variations on ICLRs are huge. ICLRs do not affect the amount of student debts. They can, however, make those debts more manageable. Neither the provincial nor federal government claims to have a specific ICLR plan yet. Both are looking at “models” to determine the feasibility of different options. The models are simulations that take into account a host of possible variables, given some base data to manipulate. But what options are out there? A symposium on ICLRs held in Toronto last month was marked by the absence of specific proposals for a workable loan scheme in either Ontario or Canada. However, amid the heavy rhetoric -- ICLRs are a very contentious issue -- lay a number of concrete examples of how ICLRs (or variations) are envisioned and actually implemented around the world. There are several ICLR plans in existence: Australia, New Zealand, and the United States all have national plans which vary greatly. Even the student loan plan in New Brunswick is a form of ICLR. In addition to existing plans, several organisations, most notably the Council of Ontario Universities (COU), have developed “working papers” that detail how an ICLR might work. This article isnotabout the pros andcons of ICLRs, nor about the correlation between tuition and student funds. There are numerous strong arguments against specific ICLR options, There are also good indications that government attempts to improve student aid systems prepare the way for increases in tuition. And a large number of groups are dedicated to fighting ICLRs based on the assumption that ICLRs set the groundwork for future tuition hikes. There is no direct relationship between the concepts behind ICLRs and tuition increases. The link, however, between proICLR arguments and sentiments of making students pay more for their education is real, though not necessarily binding. Below are some details of existing ICLR models and plans, and the options being considered; debate is urgently needed about the merits and problems of each plan. They are not presented in any particular order, and this is not a comprehensive list (England and Sweden, for example, are left out). This article does not present any “alternative” student foan programs, either, another important aspect of the issue. Unless students are aware o f the issues and possible variations, student input to the decision-making process will be minimal at best.


The COU: The Stager Model While not a definite set of ICLR parameters, the Council of Ontario Universities’ March, I992 report Contingent Repayment Student Assistance Pluns detailed many of the issues that an ICLR plan would involve. It also outlined the (in)famous “Stager Model.” The model was developed by Dr. David Stager, an economist at the University of Toronto to make projections about the impact of possible ICLR variations. To a

[7 It is “essential” that ICLRs do not involve a means test, and that loans cover any and all student costs. 0 ICLRs should be the only government loan system. Cl The “forgiveness” term should be betwem 25 and 30 years after graduation.

Cl There should be a minimum income level before repayment is required. The default value in the model was $2 1,402 -- the median income in 1990 dollars for all Ontario residents in 1989. The model allowed for this to be set at any amount equal or greater than zero. 0 Loans are tied to families, so their combined income should be considered. 0 Interest on the student’s loan should be at least that charged to the government for the money fronted, Each loan could optionally have its own rates negotiated. The paper does not discuss maximum loan amounts. Cl There should be a baserepayment amount, and must vary according to the student’s income levels. 0 Repayment should be through federal income taxes.The government would raise the money and lend directly to students, assuming the risk.

The basics There are an infinite number of variations on ICLRs, and two ICLR plans can be vastly different Tom each other. Yet there is a basic “theme” that virtually all ICLRs have in common: The terms uf repayment must vary in some way, depending on the student’s income levels after graduation.

That’s it. An almost infinite number of other issues must be resolved, however:



The purpose of the ICLR, philosophically, This is perhaps the most important -- and most contentious -- aspect of ICLR debates. Should ICLRs help students with existing debts, or allow higher tuition? The COU, Globe and Mail, and other ICLR proponents want ICLRs to help shift university tiding from institution grants to student loans which must be paid back at some point. The OUSA, on the other hand, does not favour increases in tuition, only wanting ICLRs to help students with existing debts.



What is the term of repayment? Should the debt be “forgiven” after some point? What point -- ten years, or thirty? Should a student be required to pay the debt, regardless of how long it takes?

New Brunswick:

6 l

What should be the “threshold” level for repayment? Should students earning below poverty levels not have to pay, or should it be the median income level? What about students with families or disabilities? Should they ever have to pay loans back? What mitigating factors should be considered?

7 l

Should the loan be tied to the individual, or to any future families? Whose income determines if the loan can or should be repaid? What if both spouses have student debts‘? What if the spouse with the debt does not work, and thus never has any income, ever? What interest rate, if any, should be charged? Should it be subsidized by the government, or set by the markets? Should interest start when a student first gets a loan, or after income reaches a certain level? If there is interest, should a limit be set on the total accumulated debt? At what level -- 150% of the amount, borrowed (principle)? 200%?

IBRS In the spring of 1993, New Brunswick revamped its student assistance programs, and formed a committee to consider repayment options. The committee rejected ICLRs, endorsing Income Based Rebates (IBRs). The main features of a future IBR system, according to the committee, should be: 0 It is to help with current and total student debt loads, not to allow students to carry higher debt loads. It. is aimed primarily at helping students deal with large amount of debt. Officially, New Brunswick is against increasing the amount of student debts, especially through tuition increases.



Cl The New Brunswick Student Grant Program (a small pilot program) is run through the provincial government and private banks. To. work, the government believes that is must “harmonize” its program with the Canadian Student Loans program and the federal government in all aspects.

Should there be a means test? Should students simply get as much money as they ask for, or should they prove that they deserve everv dollar? Should there be a limit on the amoint that they can borrow?

What rate do studentspay their loans back at? Should it be SLbase amount a month, or a percentage of their taxable income? Should the payback rate vary according to income level, debt level, or both?

Cl Loans are contingent on a means test, and proof that the student is making “satisfactory and timely progress towards completion of a recognised credential.”

Who runs the ICLR? Some programs are run through private institutions (banks), and others by the govemnients involved. There are pros and cons to both. Is it to be a national program, or provincial?





Is it a fixed plan, or an option? Can each student choose his or her own repayment scheme, or should an ICLR be the only or major option available for student loans? Should ICLRs be tied to existing programs, or replace them entirely?



How is the loan paid back; private collection agency, a bank, personal income tax, or payroll deductions? Who guarantees the loans? Should the government assumethe debt ifthe loan is in default? Should it pay a “risk premium” and let a bank assume the risk?


All student loans are IBRs (although any

One big, happy,



continued from previous page Cl Students are eligible for “rebates” against their loans. These rebates are direct payments by the government towards the remaining amount of the loans.

students just graduation?”

Cl Payment levels are determined by the low end of income brackets. Income levels above $27,749 pay at 2% ($555 a year); income levels above $3 1,532 pay at 3% ($946); income levels over $44,146 pay at 4% ($1766). This debt is cumulative with any AUSTUDY debt.

Australia: HECS One of the most talked about ICLRs in use is the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) in Australia. In 1989 the Australian government raised tuition from a nominal amount ($250 a person a year) to $2328 a year per person. To help students with this, HECS included an ICLR plan, possibly one of the first national programs in the world. Some key features: 0 The ICLR portion of HECS is designed to help students pay for an increased tuition level. Tuition has increased again since it was introduced, but not significantly (the major jump -- nearly 1000% --occurred in conjunction with the scheme). Tuition increases were conceived before ICLR was: ICLR was to help students with those increases. Cl It is run entirely by the national ment, with no bank involvement.


Cl There is no means test for HECS, but it is only for tuition. Living expenses are covered by AUSTUDY, a grant program that requires a means test (not all students qualify for AUSTUDY). 0 It is a fixed plan, but students can pay their tuition up front and get a 25% discount. Cl The debt remains until it is paid off -there is no default or forgiveness. As long as some debt remains and income is above a specific level, payments are expected. Cl The threshold level for repayment is $27,748. The moment income levels exceed that amount, payment is required, so some students have to pay while still in school. 0 The loan is tied exclusively to the individual; a family’s combined income is not factored. If a student marries and never receives an income, they do not have to pay. 0 There is no interest rate, except inflation; the government subsidizes the loan, so theoretically the longer it takes to pay the debt the greater the advantage.

IJ Payment is to the government; income tax forms are used only for income infarmation, although this may change. The loans are floated by the government, who assumes the risk. As the loans are never forgiven, the only “defaults” are those who never make above the threshold income, or who die before paying off the entire debt.

get enough




Cl Repayment is between and 15% of total income. If the monthly amount falls below $25, no repayment is required. Dependants and other mitigating factors can affect the minimum payment amount (e.g., single child dependant means no payment is required if the monthly payment would be less than $32). Students can apply for “financial hardship” relief for a period of 3 years, during which payments and interest are suspended. 13 The loan is a family debt; family is used to determine payments.

Just starting This September the US began its first ICLR program. After a large amount of preparation, the proposal was drafted and passed by Congress in an astonishing six months in the spring on 1993 as part of President Clinton’s education reforms. There are no figures yet on how successful it is (or will be), and the parameters for the first year may change in December. Some key features:

0 The interest rate is tied to market rates, up to a maximum value of 150% of the original loan amount (principle). The interest starts at graduation.

Cl Loans are collected through private collection agencies. Income tax is used to verify income levels, and may in the future be used to collect loans. The government assumes the risk on the loans.

0 Students apply for loans normally. ICLR only affects the repayment options, not the loan options. 0 ICLR is just one option. Students can also choose a 10 year fixed payment scheme, a graduated repayment scheme (increasing amounts due each year on a fixed scale), a long term extended loan plan, or conduct one-on-one loan negotiations. Students can change the form of their loan repayment at any point, and only 15-25% of students are expected to choose ICLR. 0 The repayment begins at graduation. Any unpaid loan balances are forgiven after 25 years.

Cl The program is run ernment through private it was administered by ited, a private company. may be administering it

a There is a means test for the loans. Up to NZ$4000 is available for living expenses, along with $1000 for books and other course costs, and the full cost of tuition. If a student qualifies for an allowance (grant), the loan limits are adjusted accordingly. Cl It is the only government plan, but a number ofprivate banks offer special loans to students, including up to $1000 interest free. However, the government scheme has one of the lowest rates. 0 There is no forgiveness level. As long as some debt remains and income is over a certain level, repayment is expected. Cl The threshold level is $13,104. There are complaints that this is far too low a figure. Cl The loan is tied to the individual, family.

not a

Cl The interest rate is currently 7.2% a year, which is negotiated each year by the lending institutions. Interest starts upon graduation, or once the student’s income is over $13,104. 0 Repayment is 10% of all income over the threshold level ($13,104). For example, if you make $15,000 a year, you owe $189.60 -- 10% of the difference between $15,000 and $13,104. Cl The loan is paid to a private and guaranteed by the crown.


0 It is run through the federal government. By raising the money directly, the US has saved $4.3 billion over the past five years.

big question


Cl Repayment is a base amount of 4% of income, plus 0.2% for each $1000 borrowed, up to a maximum of 15% of yearly income. If that amount falls below $25 a month, no payment is required until conditions improve (although interest still accumulates). Payments at no time exceed the payments for a standard 12 year amortization table.

United States:

Cl It is a “budget neutral” measure, influencing government expenditures.



New Zealand: Our future systtm? It is possible that the income-contingent loan repayment plan in New Zealand is one of the “best” models to look at in Canada. Both our provincial and federal governments are considering schemes that bear a stronger similarity to what is in New Zealand than what is in theUS or Australia. Like Australia’s HECS, New Zealand’s plan coincided with a dramatic increase in tuition: f!rom a token amount of NZ$200 to NZ$ 1000 per person per year (since increasing to a range of NZ$1500 to NZ$20,000

for some doctorate


Some key features: Cl ICLR was implemented jointly with tuition increases; tuition has since risen, but not dramatically.

One of the biggest hinderances in the debate about ICLRs is the lack of information. ICLRs could mean many things, including governments becoming more willing to raise tuition, lifetime debts, or more equitable loan repayment schemes. UW’s student government is pursuing ICLR through OUSA, our provincial student body. OUSA’s position on many of these issues will be availble in November. a special thanks to Brain Imrie and Ari Katz -

Jackson. The casting of John Travolta as a grown up Vinnie Barbarino is brilliant, suggesting a whatever-happened-to sense ofpure 70’s nostalgia. The real clues of inspiration lie in the selection of music in Tarantino’s film’s. The most-gruesome scene in Dogs occurs to the strains of Stealer’s Wheel’s Stuck In The Middle with You, originally heard on Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 in 1973, probably the same year as the birthdate on Joel the Slacker’s0 driver’s licence. Pulp Fiction delves into the same era with the use of Kool & the Gang’s funk classic Jungle Bougie and Al Green’s supremely sensual Let’s Stay Together, both of which are used at crucial times in the development ofthe plot. These cultural references are meant to be viewed with a certain amount of affection, used to recreate the innocence of the pre and early adolescence experience of these works’ creators. People who have no working memory of the 70’s will laugh at the outrageousness of the decade taste forgot; those who grew up in it can only laugh at what was once considered cool.

Now, there boks like there is no hockey season either this year. What’s this all about? Money, as if youdidn’t know I was gonna say that. It’s not that the spectators aren’t paying enough for it, nor are the players lacking financially. Hell, some of them make millions every year, and those who don’t make The Big Bucks get a fair bit. Nobody in this business lacks for anything, except for those who watch the sports. Well, maybe the unfortunate viewer does get something out of this situation.

They can sit down and watch a few hours of grown men smacking each other with sticks, or hitting some small object around a field or ice rink. Or they could actually be there, right there on the edge of that rink or field, watching those same grown men beat on each other or on that small object. In the E-Z or stadium chair, relaxed, forgetting all about the world, beer in one hand, some food thing with enough grease and ketchup to give a cow the runs in the other, a person can forget the problems of their world, one with the roar of the fans.

“Hey Bill, remember that game, the one with the Canucks and the Kings?” “ Oh yeah, that game. Yeah that was incredible. Do you still have it on tape?” The game is over, the fans go home either with a feeling of frustration or accomplishment. Bets are paid off, and including the money whatever pitcher or power forward has earned, millions exchange hands. All this is based on what? What or whose ideals are fUlfilled? Perhaps some person who has never been to a game before comes away with a feeling ofjoy matched by anything previous in their lives, or some player’s dream is obtained because of his promotion through the ranks and he scores the winning goal. What has really changed in the world from when the game began to where it ended? Nothing. The fans go back to their homes, their jobs, their unchanging lives with their changing heros, from O.J. Simpson to Wayne Gretzky, Pro sports is for the masses, to keep the masses at bay, stifling their minds with the senseless violence of the game. They have no time to do anything else, there’s only the drudgery of everyday life and the fantasy world of Pro sports. I know there’s at least one person who won’t miss the game on T.V.. Given a choice between the real world and sports, what do you pick?

It is a fact that humans are always searching for success, joy and comfort in their own way. From the time of Adam, the father of human kind, until today, this has been a crucial matter worthy of spending hours, days and even years to look for a satisfactorily conclusiveguideline of “what is success and what are the means to achieve it?“. No wonder believers throughout history of mankind had the clear answers to these questions delivered to them by their prophet of time, be it Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammad or others peace be upon them (PBUT). All these prophets came with the same message (Truth) and answers to such serious questions as: 1)Who is our Creator? 2)What is our origin? 3)What is the purpose of our creation? 4)What is the end? Every person needs to relate to him/ herself for a few moments and question his/ her heart, mind and intellect whether s/he has sound answers or not and how to prove and support her/his answers based on a logical and rational approach, rather than blindly copying and repeating what other do and say.

A good deed in the sight of Allah must be done sincerely to please Him alone and according to His guidance. If one of those two conditions is missed, that deed will not be accepted by Allah. Answering 4), the Qur’an assures the coming of an endless life in either two places; heaven or hell fire.

Sloppy play and mistakes the second half handed Laurier the win Saturday, and gave the their second heart-breaking loss in three weeks.

by Waterloo’s and play York

In the seventh annual battle of Waterloo, the Warriors played brilliant football in the first 30 minutes, but fell apart in the second half, eventually losing 35- 16 to the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks. This is the third week in a row that the Warriors have played disappointing football. Two weeks ago, Waterloo came back from a l3- point deficit athalf-time before loosing the game in the last two minutes to McMaster. Last week against Guelph the Warriors narrowly escaped with a 25-23 win after a frustrating fourth quarter. On Saturday, Waterloo played very tough against Laurier in the first half. When both teams left the field at half time, it was a close one point game with Waterloo down 14-13.



However, from that point on everything seemed to fall apart for the Warriors. On a punt attempt near Waterloo’s end-zone, the ball was dropped and then fumbled. Laurierwas able to recover the ball, falling on it in the endzone and collecting seven points, and extending their lead to 21- 13.

Chris Cudmore (#HI). The Warriors tomorrow in Toronto at 2 p.m. Waterloo was hoping to regroup after Arek Biggos, who was named the M.V.P. of the game, connected on a 34 yard field goal to make it 2 1- 16.

We’ve been making these mistakes all year. Z want to quit making the big mistakes.”

The loss to Laurier puts Waterloo in a must-win situation against the York Yeoman tomorrow if they are going to have a good shot at the playoffs this season. The team realizes they can’t take the York team for granted, despite the fateful O44 record they have amassed over the last couple of years. “It’s a must-win situation for us,” said slotback Gord Fawcett. “Just because it’s York doesn’t mean anything. We have got to go out and dominate, and then start worrying about the playoffs after that. We’ve got to go out with everything we got.” “York’s got that losing streak and they’re just dying to beat someL body,” said tillback Mike Mallot, who lead the team in rushing Saturday with 89 yards, 73 of which were in the first half. “We certainly don’t want to lose this game because it will put us in a bad situation for the playoffs.” lost Waterloo is now tied for third place in the OUAA with McMaster and Guelph.

too much for Waterloo, and took the game 1-O. York is reputed to have one of the most explosive and potent attacking games in the country. Prepared for this, the Athenas played a strong defensive style contest, turning the York offence away time and time again. A strong game by goalkeeper Yolanda Lewczuk, accented by some outstanding on a second half saves -- particulary barrage -- kept the game close throughout. The shutout was not to be, asone York shot found its mark, counting the difference in

the final tally.

The second contest of the day saw the Athenas take on the women from Queen’s, in a must win game for the Golden Gales. Queen’s

has their sights set on catching Guelph for fourth place, and an improved seeding at the upcoming championships. A good, spirited game resulted, one that was a pleasure to watch. The two evenly matched teams played to O-Othrough the first half. The scoreless bout continued until fifth year veteran Leanne Dietrich tipped the scales in Waterloo’s favour, with a goal off of a penalty stroke. That was all the Athenas needed to finish on the winning end of the f -0 decision. The weekend’s results will likely allow the Athenas to maintain their rank of eighth in the nation, and keeps them two points ahead of fourth place Guelph, York, and Toronto maintained first and second place respectively after Saturdays results, with Guelph and Queen’s rounding out

the top five. Waterloo will take on Queen’s and seventh place McGill this Sunday back in Toronto in their quest to beat Uoff, and they hope to go into the OWIAA finals on a winning note.

N’ Pepa’s “00 baby baby, b-baby baby,” in there as well before they wentbackandfinishedof’Bridges.” “There is an evil among us brothers and sisters. It’s called pop radio,” Gabby announced leading into their anti-industry song “They Don’t Want Truth:” “They don’t want truth,/ they want a radio song/ so all their friends/ can sing along,/ forget what’s really going on,” The last song of the set was “More than a Feeling” by Boston which was warmly received but cut a little short. However for their encore they played, “You’re leaving, Don’t Go,” a ballad about repairing a relationship before it is too late. Gabby’s more vulnerable side that he has been criticized for hiding, came shining through brilliantly. The Cadillac Tramps recently released their fourth CD /t’s AIlrig&. This new sound is smoother and deeper with a clearer and more serious message. This element has not taken away the endless energy of Gabby but served to give their live performance more character and punch.

Definitelv Miss Saigon The Princess of Wales Theatre Thursday, October 13, 1994 by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff


isually arresting but intellectually unrewarding, Miss Saigon is a brilliant failure. As an exercise in technical virtuosity, Miss Saigon is a resounding success. The stage sets arc wondrous, the timing is impeccable. As an exercise in dramatic entertainment, the play is plagued with bad dialogue, overacting, underacting and worst of all, forgettable songs. Staged in the beautiful Princess of Wales theatre, Miss Saigon simply comes off as though lots of money has been pumped into the look of the play, but the play itself is intellectually vapid. Modelled after opera rather than an actual musical, Miss Saigon has no spoken parts, which makes for some awkward moments when phrases like “Come on let’s go” have to be given some musical cadence. Beyond that, however, the songs are instantly forgettable. “The Heat is On in Saigon” isn’t dreadful; it’s really the only piece of music during the entire perforrnante that approaches a memorable tune and the songs go downhill after that. Unfortunately, “The Heat is on in Saigon” is the second song in the show. You don’t start a show with a show stopper. The plot of Miss Saigon is basically an updated, less sexual Madame Butterfly. Chris, a U.S. marine, spends the night with Kim, a novice prostitute: Their lives are suddenly changed and he realizes how great the world is. Suddenly, the Yanks are kicked out of Saigon, and for some reason Kim doesn’t go with him. Now this “some reason” is basically the reason for the play, since if Kim did go back with Chris, there would be no problem (and no play.) I’ll talk a little about this 1ater. The narrative then jumps forward three years, to a Vietnam celebrating the three year anniversary of Ho Chi Minh’s communist wonderland. We realize that Kim’s parents had arranged a marriage between her and some other Vietnamese man. This man turns out to hold a position of power in the new communist regime. Kim’s former pimp, a softhearted opportunist known as ‘The Engineer’ is recruited to find Kim, which he promptly does. However, there’s a little surprise waiting for the Engineer. Kim had been impregnated by Chris, and as a result, now has a three year old son. For the Engineer, Kim’s son (an American citizen) is a ticket out of Vietnam, and so he

While every play requires a certain suspension of disbelief, no plot device should require the audience to deposit their brains by the door before they watch the play.

The final chapter in the story involves an uncomfortable confrontation between Kim and Ellen (Chris’s new wife in America), and then one more silly scene at the end.

t’s Sunday morning and I’m having coffee chez Krafchick with Tori Amos. That is to say, I’m drinking coffee chez Krafchick while speaking to Tori long-distance from Birmingham, Michigan. You get what you can get. She’s been on tour since last spring: a gruelling 250&y jaunt covering every nook and cranny of four continents, including a stop at Kitchener’s Centre In The Square on the first of November. She’s pleasant and engaging this morning, despite her exhausting schedule and recurring health problems. “The muscle in the chest wall area had swollen so that it was running into my ribs,” she explains. “It was like I was getting stabbed to death. So I had to take some heavy inflamatories to bring that swelling down. It’s the way I play, and that I’ve been playing so heavy. I’m doing good now, actually-it’s improving a lot. I’m not in pain like I

“Obviously,” she begins carefully, “the girl that writes the songs doesn’t come and play them because that side is just, so that there are other parts of myself that perform the songs and interpret them. But the side of myself that writes the songs, that girl never shows up for the concerts. She might go out and talk to the soundman for a couple of minutes, but that’s about it. I think the key is what I said before. The girl that writes the songs. ..never comes to perform. And that’s the way that I...protect her, in a way. When I say that, it’s just that openness that has to happen when you write those kinds of songs doesn’t get opened except in very specific places. That’s how it’s always been with



Tori’ s conversational style mirrors lyric-writing her style: she is constantly interrupting Tori Amos: herself mid-sentence and switching pronouns and verb tenses at lightning speed. It’ s disjointed, yet strangely concise. Her speech lacks the usual “fillers”; there are lengthy pauses as she considers her answers and there’s nary an “umm” or an “uhh” to be heard. Yet, she claims, Tori Amos the media darling has little to do with Tori Amos the songwriter. ‘The girl that writes the songs never talks to the journalists,” she asserts. “Nobody ever gets to meet her, Never.” This is surprising, considering the intimate nature of her interviews and live performances. Whereas artists like Madonna or Prince (or whatever you call him) are constantly inventing and reinventing personas while keeping their own emotions well hidden, the Amos Persona is based on very real, very private feelHer conings and experiences. certs have been likened to public therapy sessions, where she discusses everything from her stifling Southern Methodist upbringing to the sexual assault she survived while in her early twenties. One has to wonder if there’s anything Tori won’t reveal: where

me, though, since I was very very little. It didn’t change. The one that would play the songs for people, she was more of a...(long pause)... It’s about interpreting things and I think I can be more objective about my own work when I can separate the side that’s interpreting it. “I think also over the years I created many different personas to survive. Everybody does that. I’m just a little bit more... encouraged to show them instead of getting put in a schizophrenic place. I think it’s natural.” The media has jumped on statements like this gleefully, and have been more than willing to portray Tori as an unstable, over-traumatized New Age fruitcake. One reporter went so far as to declare that “the real news about Tori Amos is that she’s genuine article, platinumplated, 100 percent crazy.” Though she is undoubtedly eccentric, descriptions like this do her a grave injustice. Her latest release, Under The Pink, explores inter-female relationships with an insigh! and sensitivity that has strvck a chord with women and men alike. “Guys have told me that they have learned so much about women and their girlfriends just by coming to a concert and ob-

serving,” she laughs. “They said, ‘it’s like we’re being taken into this secret ceremony and really shown what happens in the ladies

room’. And I think it’s very important cuz guys, poor little things, they scratch their heads and they have no idea that we’ve already sliced and diced them two hours ago. It’s like, Honey, you were mincemeat before breakfast. So I think it’s important that they understand.” “Men are pretty much...well...they wear their hearts on their sleeve. They’re not master manipulators, men, They haven’t had to have been. Women, to survive--you make friends with your enemy. You serve them turkey. You get them in the kitchen and have them help you make the dressing and then you find out if they’re sleeping with your man or not. And you don’t even let that smile fade because that’s how we have done battle with each other. You gain each other’s trust.” Tori is quick to deny accusations of “manbashing” on Under The Pink, though she’ll readily admit to being dead tired of self-pitying “oppressed” males. ‘me pity thing from the male gets a little boring, but the pity thing from the women is getting a little boring too. The pity thing’s got to go. With both sexes. The fingers have got to stop pointing. “I don’t believe in victim being a anymore. I can say this, living in the West. Yeah, you can be treated bad in a place of work but you can.. .draw people to you that dorespect women. You might have to look a little bit for it, but you can find it. I demand it,” She hesitates, then corrects herself. “I just expect it, really, not demand it. I just walk in and expect that they’re going to treat me equally. And if they don’t, I just rip their heads off. I have no problem urinating on their desk.” Tori is equally disgusted with the lack of respect shown among women themselves, lamenting that, “...we’ve been taught that there’s only room for one. If there are twenty women in a harem, there’s only room for one favourite. In a weird way, it’s been instilled in us that there isn’t enough room--” Too many stars and not enough sky? “That’s right!” Tori Amos has committed herself to establishing Sisterhood in an industry that all too frequently pits talented women against one another (Polly Harvey and Bjork are both close pals). As far as she’s concerned, if there’s too many stars and not enough sky, we’re just going to have to make more sky. Tori Amos will be appearing November first at the Centre In The Square.

saw dot of Bootsy last week and this was a night when he was giving it up to everybody. Probably the best indication of what a great performer Bootsy is, is how Bootsy got off the stage the moment he started to suck. He knew when to take a break, He returned about half an hour later and hung out and then left again, and so on. This was probably the FUNKIEST show I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen alot of shows even though I come from the fairyland of day-time empty-park seagullinfested suburbia. All those self proclaimed Alternative Professionals out there in university land and elsewhere who think they know how to rock and dress the part could have learned a thing or two from Mr. B. Collins’ therapy sessions known as concerts. He easily displaces the peepee stained visions most people have ofthemsclves in harmony with the universe and others around you. Funk is the friendliest game to hit the university circuit since the Tammy Show, but nobody seemed to notice. Until1 now, that is. Bootsy showed that you can search for the funk all you want, like that cool Soundgarden funk-sound or some shit like that. Sure Soundgarden are ok., at least I think so. But just go ahead and continue thinking they and Rage Against the Machine can rock and then listen to Bootsy .

by Ellen McKay Special to the Imprint


ough! is the first play the University’s Drama department has presented this year. The tale of three generation “Xem”, it is a well written and realistic portrayal of the problems and conflicts facing today’s youth. The main focus of the play is Tina and Bobby, a couple, and as the play opens they are arguing about the fact that Bobby cheated on Tina. Jill, one of Tina’s closest friends informed her of this, and she is a witness to their argument. Nurturing a lifelong hatred of Bobby, she freely joins Tina in insulting him. The argument runs its course and then Jill drops a bombshell - Tina is pregnant. Bobby tries to talk to Tina about this, but finds it impossible while facing the onslaught of abuse Jill is heaping on him. She agrees to leave, at Tina’s request, and the two of them renew their conversation. Bobby tells her that he’s confused and scared and really has no idea what to do about her being pregnant. At first Tina feels sorry for him, but then grows angrier as they discuss again his cheating on her. She’s infuriated by his self centredness and starts accusing him of acting no more maturely than a child. He retaliates by shooting down the simple list of dreams she has for her life, Tina then tries to leave, but he physically restrains her and it is at this point that Jill returns to the scene. Jill promptly leaps on Bobby and starts

waiting for a bus. She speaks of how tired the mother looked and what a horrible places she was probably returning to; this speech reflects Tina’s inner fears of what will happen to her. Bobby offers to support her by sending her money and Jill starts to lay into him once again telling him exactly what she thinks of him and how much support she thinks he’ll be to Tina.

revealing that she’s fantasized about friends of his and tells him he might as well just go. He refuses to at first, but after a while realizes he’s getting nowhere with her and leaves anyway. Jill and Tina start to talk about what will happen in the future and about their problems with men. Jill tries to comfort her by reassuring

her that she won’t be alone and tells her why she never liked Bobby - because he never showed concern for anyone but himself. She does suggest, however, that Tina accept Bobby’s help and maybe even take him back, so she won’t have to raise the baby all alone. Bobby returns, but Tina decides that she’ll never be able to count on him and leaves. Jill rapidly follows her, leaving Bobby alone to figure out what he’s going to do. All of the cast members put on very strong i nd convincing performances. Bobby, portrayed by Paul Bethel, comes across as laidback and unconcerned about everything except himself, but as the action unfolds, Bobby’s insecurity and inability to decide what to do about his dreams and Tina are deftly and painfully revealed. Bobby becomes someone, who in spite of many of his actions, is able to elicit pathos from the audience. Jill, played by Leanna Nash, is a very strong and forceful character who knows exactly how she feels about everything and what she’s going to do about it. Whilst supporting Tina and attacking Bobby, she reveals two extremely differing sides of her personality, yet she is still a believable, if not sympathetic character. Tina is played by Mercy Valamparampil and her excellent facial expressions make the pain and anger her character is experiencing truly convincing. It is easy to believe that she is in love with Bobby. She is another character who elicits pathos from the audience. Tougtt! was a well done play all round and we look forward to seeing more exccllent work from the drama department.

Their third studio release, Awake, offers a much heavier approach to their last album Images & Words.

The songs are coherent from a lyrical standpoint, as they all deal with loss in some way or another, Musically, one wonders how to categorize the songs on the CD.

I imagine him playing in a seedy downtown New York cafe to the masses of people who live extremely melodramatic lives. I imagine a whole group of people listening to Jeff Buckley believing that they’re “coming into touch” with their emotions simply by listening to his simple, tender chords. What this mass does not realize is that Buckley’s music may be simple in its layout and delivery, but it is certainly not simple in its meaning. His music deals with complicated emotions and it demands concentration in order to be understood. Jeff Buckley emerged late last year with a four-song, solo E.P. Between then


band’s incredible technical and musical talents. The harsher vocals this time around help the ‘aggressive’ nature of tunes like “Lie” and “690,” yet Labrie still nails the high notes with clear, dynamic range on the melodic songs like “Innocence Faded” and “Lifting Shadows OTf A Dream.” Influences from Queensryche can be heard on “Voices,” and on the bass/blues intro to “Scarred.” Petrucci’s 7-string guitar gives more of a bottom-ended, chunky sound than onlmages & Words, and he uses more metallic riffs to give this album its ‘metal’ feel. Keys on this album are less pronounced than before, with Kevin Moore using a more distorted sound, and being further back in the mix. Still, the melody is carried 50-50 between guitar and keys, there’s just no pitchbending solos as there were on the previous two albums. High points on the disc include the opening track, “6:00,” the instrumental “Erotomania,” and “Scarred,” the latter two lasting about LO minutes each. On the down side, there are a couple tunes here that, in parts, border on being too commercial sounding. “The Silent Man,” starts off sounding similar in vein to what Rush did on the end of “CygnusX-IBookII,“with”TheSphere,”but unfortunately, varies little from its strum pattern, and really doesn’t mesh well with the feeling of the other songs. The same can be said for “Innocence Faded.” These aren’t bad tunes by themselves, but their compatibility with the rest of the album is questionable. The album closes with the incredible dark piano driven “Space Dye Vest,” Kevin Moore’s final piece of work for Dream Thetiter,

What’s next, a recording released to commemorate Canadian golfs celebrated Canadian Open? Released in conjunction with the World Championship of Basketball held in Toronto Keep it Slnmmin’ is a compilation of songs about basketball, and songs that have some allusion to this popular sport. What is most endearing about this compiliation is the diversity of contributing artists, and the melange of different musical styles united under one album title. “(I know I got) Skilz” by basketball’s great Shaquille O’Neil is flavoured with a killer base and danceable beat. Of all the tracks on Keep it Slammin’, O’Neil’s contribution stands out as one of the strongest.

and the release of his recent album Grtic‘e, he gathered three talented band members, and has toured throughout North America in an effort to introduce what he believes is a new type of music, music that finally “aims at what’s really going on underneath, not what people pretend to be or what they hope they can buy at a store.” A novel idea, in my opinion. Dealing with people’s hidden emotions. And, in general, he does this relatively well. Unfortunately, his best effort at this is exemplified in a beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah”, a Leonard Cohen original. This song may be well received by his audiences, but he has no claim on the emotions dealt with in this song. This album is definitely a good one to add to the collection if one is trying to build up the emotional, melodramatic portion of a record coHection.If you’re up to thinking about your music and yourself, then there’s a lot to be gairled from Jeff Buckley’s album Gruce.

The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “Magic Johnson” is a fury of noise that resembles something like Bootsauce on fast forward. Not one of the Pepper’s most memorable pieces. US3, well known for their jazzy get-upand-dance songs are represented on Keep it Sfammin ’ with “Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia).” Equally as satisfying as their usual material “Cantaloop” is a hearty part of the basketball compilation. L,isa Lisa who has abandoned her Cult Jam is the only female contribution to the album. Her song “Skip to My Lu” is a refreshing change from the other base-ladden tracks, however the track fails to excite the listener beyond a courteous toe tap. Even the riotous Beastie Boys can be found on Keep it Slammin ’ with their piece, “The Skills to Pay the Bills,” The Keep it Slammin’ compilation has achieved it’s purpose. By the end of the album, the listless listener is somewhat excited about the sport of basketball, and in particular the now finished world championships.

Elvis Mondays were established in the Toronto music scene about ten years ago, as a man named William New hosted the “Elvis Memorial Beatfest” as a benefit for a now long lost magazine called “This Tiny Donkey Looks Rather Lost.” Bands were allowed to play on the condition that they played one Elvis number. Since then it has become a sort of institution, a place where new bands can get some exposure to an audience happy to have paid no cover, and desirous of extending the weekend just one more day. Gathered here are some of the Alumni of the nights, acts that capture its spirit of inspired amateurism, as well as showcasing sotne of the bigger name acts that have been there, A substantial number are unreleased, and in some cases actually written for this camp, In the latter catagory is Bob Snider’s “Ancient Eyes,” and Nothing in Particular’s “Doug Boy” (perhaps Doug is a regular at the shows?) As a representation of the aforcmeniioned amateurism, this album succeeds, oddly enough, in the fact that not every song is good. Think about it: when you go to new music type showcases like these, there are almost invariably some bands that are good, others fair, and others still that are rather dismal. The fun cotnes in the sense of discovery, that excitement in hearing a band you’ve never seen lhat turns you into a fan in the space of a thirty minute set. So then for every good song by, say Change of Heart or Scott B. Sympathy or Meryn Cadell (al though couldn’t you come up with an actual new one Meryn?), there are songs by hHead and the abyssmal Look People to make the good ones seem just that much better. I’m not sure if this was the intention of the compilers, but whatever the case this is the impression created, in addition to the feeling that William New’s tastes and range of tastes in music is very wide indeed. Incidentally, it should be mentioned that the liner notes include reminiscences from the various bands of their experiences at Elvis Mondays; loss of sleep, smoking drugs backstage, you know -- the usual. If you’re

a fan of


indie music (One Free Fall, Grasshopper, and Loader are also included) this would be a welcome addition to your collection. Enjoy the good, endure the bad, and perhaps program out the ugly.

use the word boffo very often, so trust me when I say it’sagreat song. Of the rest of the songs, “Rockunroll” and “Annie” are Peel Sessions and “2: 1” is a different BBC session. Over here, “girl bands” generally fall into two categories: the don’t fuck with me riot gallllls such as L7 and Babes in Toyland. or the semi-cutesy ones such as The Breeders or Belly. Elastica have reclaimed a respectable middle ground that they can be proud of.

It is common knowledge that the blues forged the way for the sound of rock and roll as we know it. Although the blues was a spawning ground for rock and roll, this musical genre has remained pretty static. Blues musician Kevin Moore or Keb’ MO’ as he is known, sticks to the tried andtruewith this self titled release. In typical blues fashion Keb’ MO’ ineludes a couple of early blues covers along side his own fine songwriting. The two Robert Johnson covers, the widely known “Come On Tn My Kitchen” and the lesser known “Kindhearted Woman Blues” are aptly covered but provide no new musical insight. Moore is proficient at covering someone else’s material but also has some strong material to offer himself, The material does not break any new ground in the world of blues but provides some pleasant listening.

On Keb’ MO Moore’s stark voice wails in time with the music. His vocals are the kind that would be right at home in a run down bar with a wood floor, filled with smoke and the smell of draft beer on tap.

Occasionally the lyrics are a bit too strong for the accompaniment, due to the soft tone of the guitar compared to the harsh sound and content of the words in some tracks.

Imprint, Friday, October 21, 1994 lack a change of pace which could be used to bring some variation to this sometimes monotonous sounding recording. A bright spot on this album was when the guitar was dropped in favour of a more standard rocksy sound and beat on the ninth track, “Loves old song”, which allowed a hint of Gray’s musical talent to come through. The songs tend to focus on Gray’s relationships with women and how this corresponds to the universe as shown by “Breaking like a wave/upon the shore/Mercy me, I’m falling free/Since you opened up the door.” These lyrics tend to get a bit dry after about the third song since there is
