However, the Feds are not accountable for any budget over-runs. “Ellis-Don must be losing a shitload of money,” Dewhurst noted, as they have to absorb the costs incurred.

T

o strike or not to strike, that is the question. And the answer you’ll get depends entirely upon who you ask. A national day of strike and protest is being organized by the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) for January 25, 1995, to protest Lloyd Axworthy’s proposed funding cuts to univcrsities across the country. These cuts are happening in the form of the annual $2.6 bill ion cash transfer being phased out in the next few years. Fears of doubled tuition are everywhere due to this announcement, and the federal govemment has done little to allay them, except to suggest some sort of improved loan system to offset the tuition hikes. “Support is growing daily for the January 25 National Day of Strike,” says Mike Mancinelli, National Deputy Chairperson for the CFS. A press release from the CFS listed the following groups as having “endorsed the action” and “preparing to mobilize their members throughout Canada.” Action Canada Network Canadian Labour Congress Canadian Union of Postal Workers Canadian Union of Public Employees Council of Canadians National Action Committee

Mancinelli seems confident that the CFS protests will have a significant effect. “The Liberal government must be feeling quite concerned that their so-cal led support will unravel in the face of the student mobilization on January 25,” he says. He also called peo-

of the planned strike, despite CUPE’s supposed endorsement. The Federation of Students here at UW also does not endorse the strike. “It has been the directive that our student’s council has given to us that they don’t want to participate,” says Julie Cole, Vice-President University Affairs. David Drewe, Sr. Officer of Academic Affairs, has been following the CFS’s plans, and

Fears of doubled tuition are everywhere and the government has done little to allay them pie who support Axworthy’s proposals “manipulated, constrained and intimidated.” Mancinelli may be overconftdent, at least as far as the effects here at UW goes. Christine Dewhurst, the Vice-President Operations and Finance, oversees all Fed businesses, and she assured Imprint that the post office will be open on the 25th. All staff here at UW are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), but when asked if anything was planned for the Zth, a UW Custodian said he hadn’t even heard

thinks they are flawed. “There’s a bit of missing logic in terms of ‘we’re worriedabout the expense of an education, so we’re denying ourselves a day of education’ .” “The main image that we have to combat in order to get the community at large (who really have all the votes) on our side, is that students are spoiled brats, and this ‘If we’re not playing by my rules then you can’t use my sandbox’ sort ofthing really isn’t going to do anything for that,” Drewe says. What the Federation of Stu-

strike dents is doing on the 25th instead of protest is to attempt to organize”some form ofactionempowering students,” according to ;i lcttcr sent out across campus to student society presidents, the Graduate Students Association, and the Dean’s Council, among others. The form of this action is to ask professors to devote part of their class time to discussion on the importance of a broadly accessible university system and other topics, with material and facts provided by the Feds. They arc aIso planning an evening information session where various groups would present their responses to the proposed reforms. A tentative list of groups to be represented included the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, the Ontario Council of University Faculty, and a representative from the Ministry of Education and Training. The Federation has taken a “Talk, Don’t Walk” approach, according to the letter, and feels that other students will alienate themselves from the rest of their communities by staging walkouts. The Federation is looking for student input on these ideas. If you have any input, David Drewe or Adam Lee can be reached in the Fed offlces, at university ex2340, or at tension Fedacad@watserv 1.

Administration cuts

deeper

by James Russell Imprint staff

T

he university is suffering more cuts this coming term, but these are not because of the provincial or federal governments. These have been called for by Jim Kalbfleisch, Vice-President Academic and Provost. The administration makes its budgets up based on projected enrolments. Unfortunately, the projections for the Fall 1994 term turned out to be a little too high. “What we have to do each time, is estimate how much in total tuition revenue we will receive,” says Kalbflcisch. “So even in the late fall we’re going entirely on an estimate.” There have been shortfalls in all areas of enrollment, as well as a drop in differential fees ( the additional fees paid by foreign students). “There were fewer students in distance education, there were fewer graduate students, there were fewer undergraduate students, it. was a fairly broadly-based shortfall.” The estimates were not that inaccurate, Kalbfleisch wants to point out. “You have to remember

that we’re talking about something of the order of a couple of percent. It’s pretty hard to predict any of these things with that kind of accuracy .” The shortfall is expected to be approximately $1.7 million, or about 1% of this year’s operating budget. According to the memo released by Kalbfleisch, this amount is just too large to carry over to the next fiscal year, due to uncertainties in tinding caused by an impending provincial election and the review of federal payments to the provinces for post-secondary education. The cut comes in the form of a levy, which requires temporary savings, as opposed to a normal budget cut which would require a permanent reduction in expenditures. The levy is 0.5% on 1994-95 operating budgets for every department of the university, not exclusively aca1 demic depts. What has the reaction been? “I don’t think anybody likes having their budget cut, but people realize the necessity, the reason for biting the bullet and taking action now, so that we don’t face an even more serious problem next year.”

Academic Affairs Officer meets with Minister of Health by James Russell Imprint staff

0

n Friday, December 23, David Drewe, the Federa-

tion of Students Sr. Officer of Academic Affairs, met with the Federal Minister of Health, Diane Marleau, to discuss the proposed social services reform, including the possible phasing out of $2.6 billion in transfer payments to the provinces for post-secondary education. Drewe met with Marleau as she is his MP, and they were both home for the holidays in Sudbury. Drewe went in with the position that “we’re not very comfortable with the changes.” Marleau was evidently surprised at Drewe’s position, as she is used to-dealing with students from the local university, Laurentian, which is a strong

supporter of the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS), which is known for it’s demands for zero tuition and for throwing food at politicians as a means of protest. UW is not a member of the CFS, but is a member of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA), a group that has met with Lloyd Axworthy face to face to discuss the proposed cuts. Marleau had the impression that even though tuition would rise if the proposal passed as is, an Income-contingent Loan Repayment (ICLR) Plan would be sufficient to counter the negative effects of this. Drewe explained that he had to point out to the Minister that there are a huge number of variations of ICLR’s, and while he supports them in principle, he would have to have a proposed model before he could say whether it would be good or

bad. Currently, the federal government funds universities through the province. Q-ewe and Marleau discussed how this could be changed, so that the money could go directly to the universities, eliminating the provincial middleman. This way, more efficiency could be achieved, and the federal government would get more credit for the money they provide, an issue that Marleau did not denyexists in Ottawaright now. Marleau made it clear that discussion of these proposals is far from over in Ottawa, and told Drewe that she would take some of his ideas back to caucus. In a related note, the federation of Students is coming out with a paper discussing their ideas concerning post-secondary funding at both the federal and provincial levels within a few weeks.

eccmber 6, 1994, was the fifth anniversary ofthe masI J sacre of 14 female engineering students at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. There was a memorial service held in Siegfried Hall, St. Jerome’s College, for people to be together and reflect on this tragedy. While people at the memorial had their own reasons for attending, grief was shared by everyone. The service started with a candle lighting ceremony led by Will Teron, in which a diverse group of fourteen men and women participated. A candle was lit in memory of each of the women murdered. Karin Zvanitajs, the Stuf dent Issues Board officer, introduced the keynote speaker, Marilou McPhedran, the wel I-known feminist lawyer. ;McPhedran was on the Ad Hoc Committee ofCanadian Women on the Constitution, and works with the Metro Action Council Committee on Violence Against Women, and LEAF (Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund). She discussed how she felt when she first heard the news of the murders in 1989, and talked about previous memorial services that she has been part of. McPhedran also stress that the Montreal Massacre was nut an isolated incident. In fact, violence against women and the oppression of women occurs every day in our world, our community, and right here on our campus. Examples were the recent gang -rape at Wilfrid Laurier University, the Supreme Court ruling allowing extreme drunkenness as a defence for rape, and our M&News issue of Imputent, a parody of Imprint. Marilou Following McPhedran’s talk, three engineering students reflected on the sig-

nificance of the Montreal Massacre. Jason Wood spoke about how he values his female classmates, and how he could not imagine this senseless violent act occurring to them. Piyush Bhatnagar stated that while he was upset by the Montreal Massacre, he does not agree with groups using the incident for their political agendas. Halli MacNab, a female engineering student, expressed her anger as a feminist and said that she won’t besatisfied until she can stop being angry. This can only occur when the validity of equal rights and opportunities for women are no longer questioned. The final speaker, Dr. James Downey, President of the University of Waterloo, talked about universities being places of high ideals, and that it is a tragedy that a massacre would occur at an institution designed for higher education. In closing the ceremony, Karin Zvanitajs read a

Lefcourt

celebrates 10 years with Imprint

T

his month, Imprint ccl ebrates the tenth anniversary of its association with Jack Lefcourt. For the past decade, Lefcourt has been a constant figure in Imprint, providing some hiiarious insights into the political and

NEWS

social machinations of our society. Jack Lefcourt was born and bred in Waterloo, Ontario and began his career at Imprint in 1985. he began freelancing reguIarly in 1989 and his work now appears in over twelve daily newspapers in Canada including the Winnipeg Sun, the Hamilton Spectator, the Edmonton Sun and the London Free

Press. He is aIso currently the editorial cartoonist for Toronto’s weekly NOW Magazine. While the glaringly obvious humour of artists such as Donato and Aislin is symptomatic of many Canadian political cartoonists, Lefcourt remains at the top of his form, mixing his unique brand of sarcasm with humorously grotesque caricatures. Lefcourt himself attributes some of his style to his childhood. “When I was a child, at home in bed with the flu, my parents had a reliable remedy. They would venture down to the basement and lug up an old clunky reel-to-reel tape player along with a recording of dramatized Dr. Seuss stories. “There was something murky and strange about these stories that didn’t mix well with my flu-related deliriums. The characters were altogether giddy, surreal, comical and

grotesque, and the drawings were dark and menacing, their after-images lingering, uninvited, in my dreams. Yet, always, I was enraptured. The ridiculous, not-quite-human, often fur-bearing inhabitants of his shadowy world traipse through my subconscious, and provide a rich visual vocabulary upon which I will always, to a certain

extent, rely.” Jack Lefcourt has, through a mixture of persistence, luck and endurance, attained a rare position in life - he has a job that he likes, and he’s good at what he does. He has proven himself a worthy competitor in the comic field, and Imprint is proud to have been a partner in the early days of his artistic career.

DALSA sensors and other products are being marketed to such industry leaders as Kodak, Quad Graphics, IBM, NCR, NEC, Philips, and others. Approximately 20 per cent of sales are for custom-designed products, or custom modifications to DALSA’s line of standard products.

Chamberlain’s research led to a design for a microchip that would sense light almost as well as - in some ways even better than - the human eye, better than any other sensor of the time. Recently, DALSA has even “gone Hollywood” with its digital soundhead for a new Dolby Stereo 35mm format that provides digital sound for movies.

Digital cameras capture imagery in an electronic file format rather than on a negative. There is a great future for this technology in professional photography. A photographer no longer sets up a shot, takes a preliminary fast-developed picture before making final decisions on setup, lighting, etc., adjustments, prior to shooting with the main camera. Digital photography captures the picture in real time, displays it on a monitor, then adjusts the picture digitally as . desired.

NEWS Overall, the news section rated the most successful of all the sections. 70.5% of the surveys rated the News section “good” while 17% rated it “excellent.” The comments were varied and sometimes contradictory. Some wanted more National coverage,

reader’s

while others only wanted Imprint for student news. Some other comments are listed below. Since UW has’the Gazette, we generally leave the administrative news to it, unless there is a major story which affects students. The Globe and Mail, The Tormto Star and The Torontu Sun all cover national events, so Imprint tries to focus on student issues rather than trying to spread ourselves too thin. -The only political stuff I read is about student oriented things. I don’t care about Clinton’s haircut, etc. - Would like more national coverage. - The coverage is overall very good, however I get tired of how the paper bashes the Feds and Fed Hall for no reason - This is a campus paper but there is no need to overkill the UW news. - Excellent for campus info. - On-campus events are not usually advertised. - More administration news! - Thank you for having interviews with municipal candidates. - We have international students, and hence international news and features should be added. - I’d like to read more about K-W issues (outside the University. j -Obviously it’s impossible to cover every news event in Canada, but a little less Fed and more national news would be good. - Headlines are pretty vague sometimes - More national news please - More coverage of mainline news.

survey

FORUM The Forum section received the most number of comments, most of them positive. Almost 25% of the respondents remarked on the excellence of the Qur’an Speaks, while others found all of the religious columns the least interesting. Also ranked high was Firing Line, which most people found well written. Not surprisingly, Imprint received several calls for the return of the Village Atheist. Alas, Mr. Nickerson has permanently retired, and his column will be sorely missed. - I read most letters and OpEd pieces (except for the very technical religious columns) -- miss The KZuge Atheist. Find the comics (except Lefc~urb) to be a waste of time. - I like the democratic feel of it. Plus, if an article is dumb, there is recourse for other points of view, eg. The Parting Lot is Full. - Is The IWuge Atheist column ever going to return? Please say he’s on a work term and hasn’t graduated. - Sandy: quit quoting Jefferson, invite more responses, ‘I love them. - Firing Line: complains too much - Firing Line: Very well thought out, even if I don’t always agree with it. - I like Sandy Atwal’s columns. His opinions are very well thought out and expressed. He is a very good writer. - I read all the columns with the

results

exception of ones containing religion and gay topics (because they can get too biased.) - Jeff Zavitz’ columns were rarely of any merit. - I most often read the editorials and the letters. - Most thought provoking. - FiringLine is excellent. Well written with strong arguments. - Letters to the editor are funny; do these people really exist? - Lefcourt is terrific. - Sandy Atwal is excellent. - I enjoy reading the letters to the editor, as I find many of the comments very thought provoking. - Drop the religious columns - no one reads them and they don’t give any insights - they’re only advertisements.

ARTS The Arts section received many of the usual complaints that it has received over the last few years. However, it’s ranking overall was quite high. 67.4% of the respondents ranked the section as “good” while 11.8% ranked it as “excellent .” - Most reviews are of little interest. Why review trash? Some are in poor taste. - Lighten up. Have some fun opinion pieces, anecdotal bullshit, etc. - Have a listing of concerts playing in Toronto, Kitchener’s Centre in the Square and Lulu’s. - Overall good!

- Don’t read it - Not much concern with this section. - Rate records and films out of ten and be serious. - I especially like the on-campus events and coverage - Concert coverage is excellent. What happened to the record ratings? - Would like to see Jazz albums reviewed. - Cool. Some of your record reviews are poorly written, ie. “This album sucks” with no explanation why. - I would like to see average joe’s do a guest review every once in a while. - More coverage of on-campus events would be helpful - Record reviews are very funny at times. - How about including student poetry and short stories? - I don’t always agree with what they say! - When you review albums, you usually only do the indie and alternative music. While I listen to these genres, I can’t help but feel that it does not represent the student body. After all, somebody must listen to the dance music crap or Fed Hall wouldn’t be so busy. - I like the extensive concert coverage and album reviews. - I’d rather see the record reviews rated again. Avoid the wishy washy reviews that sound like they were 1

And finally, we have the general comments from the end of the survey. As usual, we have complaints about the number of papers that we print and the ease with which

“JOIN

the ink comes off the paper. We use vegetable based ink and recycled paper which rubs off more easily, but is less harmfir to the environment for people who care about such things. We have a responsibility to print enough papers so that everyone on campus can have access to Imprint. However, we do take into account the fact that Imprint is shared by students. - Have room for the input & views of less radical people, some input from a more representative cross-section of those who pay for this paper. m A short story section. There are a lot of talented writers here who don’t want to write album reviews. I thinkImprint’s pretty cool. Write on. - Keep it the way it is! - Have articles written by people who know nothing about Star Trek. - It’s a great paper. - Ask more serious on-campus questions. - More coupons! Whatever happened to Campus Question? - Decrease circulation. Crosswords, more giveaways and comics. - Cut down on the Arts section a little bit! - A ‘3 lines free’ personals section would be good. - Be more open towards the concerns of minorities and religious people. - The paper is well written and covers issues well, don’t change anything. - More giveaways and coupons. - More “Intelligent Humour! !” - I think too many copies of Imprint are printed. - More reviews, like the first issue this term; separate Arts section. - Better proofing, there are a lot of typos. - Distribute a lot less copies. - Perhaps the addition of more (maybe not religious columns) would be nice. How about a ‘Dear Abby’ column?

t the beginning of the new year, it is customary to make vapid attempts at self improvement via New Year Resolutions, such as “I promise to lose some weight” or “I promise to be at work on time” or “I promise not to kill anyone.” Such half-hearted attempts to improve oneself are certainly doomed, and when the self-delusion wears off and you Fail at something once again, you’ll ususlly end up feeling worse about yourself than you did in late December. To avoid this additional pain in my life, I have decided to make a list of :hings I will continue to do. First, then, I will continue to drink. 1 ried to stop back in December, and iearned the lesson of the wagon - the longer you stay on, the harder it hurts Nhen you finally fall off. While consuming alcohol, and beng an alcoholic, is generally frowned upon in our society, I find this stigma -ather off-putting and hypocritical. While jobody I know will admit that they are alcoholics, by any reasonable definition, .hey all are. But there’s nothing wrong with that. Sir Winston Churchill was an alcocolic and he defeated the Nazis. Sir John 4. MacDonald was also a bit red in the lose and he was the first Prime Minister If Canada. The list goes on and on: Dorothy Parker, Jack Kcrouac, Charles 3ukowski, Ernest Hemingway, Hank Williams etc. etc. etc. While the purists in )ur society will always suggest that the jutput of these individuals would have >een greater had they not succumbed to he ills of liquor, I suggest that they derived some of their strength from the lottle. I believe that the road of excess lees lead to the palace of wisdom. Second, then, I will continue to smoke. While this has become less ac:eptabIe in our society, it is no less an ntegral part of my life, and I shall not Iart with my pack of Camel filters. I suppose I’m just a romantic at ieart. Humphrey Bogart, James Dean, md Marlene Dictrich just don’t seem complete without wisps of blue-grey smoking curling around their heads. Cancer you say? Fuck it. 1 rest easy It night knowing that our technology is mproving at a rapid enough pace that by he time I get cancer they will have inrented a small pill that you can take to get id of it. Even if they haven’t, I should rave saved enough Camel bucksTM by hen to buy myself an iron lung with an attractive Camel logo on the side. Last and certainly not least, we must urn our attention to that brash and abra;ive sound known as ‘rock’n’roll.’ True, he majority of music listened to by the routh of today would be treated simply 1s a discordant cacophony by those with :lassically trained ears, however, since I km almost deaf, probably from going to sock music shows, I can now only appre:iate “music” that consists of feedback md atonal howling. I suppose I could try and become nterested in classical music or jazz or iome equally pretentious music form, Jut that would entail learning about the listory of Baroque music this and the )ackground behind Charlie Parker that. Mhy bother? -1 suppose I have left out one more rice - sex. Well, as the saying goes, it is letter to have loved and lost, than never o have loved at ail - or so I’ve been told.

To facilitate this goal the committee wants to set up a number of stands across the campus to infoml students about the coming tuition crunch. If everything goes according to plan, an informed and incensed student population will then heed the Canadian Federation of Student’s demands for the boycott. At the meeting, Codrington skillfully poured the acid of skepticism over the Committee’s plans for the information campaign. His reply went something like this, “You think your going to get a thousand students involved’? With all our resources we’ve counted ourselves lucky to get 250 -and that’s with tireless efforts over weeks.” With an exchange of shifting glances among Action Committee members, the meeting lapsed into a moment of awkward silence. Everyone knew that Codrington was honestly despairing of his own experience. My raising the issue of a January 25 boycott brought some heavy artillery to bear on me. Codrington’s Right Hand Man abruptly slammed me down with the icy comment, “I thought this issue wasn’t going to be raised.” When I bravely persisted and raised the issue again, Cndrington stepped in and nicely provided his own impressions of why the boycott is such a bad idea. Codrington tried to dismiss the proposed boycott of classes as a kind of rally or demonstration. He would never, he said, trivialize

and. apathy

the sacrafices of my generation (1 am forty years old) by suggesting that the issue ofcutbacks required the same drastic solutions of marches and rallies. Apparently, my generation faced issues of more earthshattering importance. I raised the point with him that the proposed boycott of classes represents a tame (even timid) and even quiet method of protest. This last point needs to be mentioned so we can later see in retrospect -- clearly -- the real reason why the boycott fizzled. Large numbers of students just don’t seem to give a damn. Codrington gave the impression of an honest and smart student leader who has valid concerns about the CFS and Anti-Cuts Action Committee’s plans for a Jan 25 boycott. Obviously, ifthe boycott turns out poorly, it will expose the truth that students are far too self-preoccupied to care about larger issues, even if those issues concern the weIfare of the nation. An unsuccessful boycott will embolden the government to act even more decisively. In these apathetic times, the UW Feds have a far more realisitic approach. Their strategy is to influence the movers and shakers in the more civilized environments of conference rooms. Their plea against raising tuition fees might go something like this: “please, pretty please, don’t do it.” Even considering the lack of altematives, this approach makes me a tad nervous. Our fate may be left to the tender mercies of a the political leadership that keeps sliding

pals, has a lot of us wondering about what hasn’t been exposed. Codrington may someday discover that he doesn’t know his friends in government as well as he thought-or bettor than he wants to. Fortunately for us, the Feds reject the even worse idea of a January boycott. This era in UW’s history is not friendly to the idea of student activism. Students now focus on the important things in life like dreams of power lunches on Bay Street, BMWs, the next work term, or at the very least a care package to sit on in the middle ofa downtown heating grate. This is a truth that that Codrington knows with the unfailing gut instincts of a politician, but would never speak. Codrington may be starting to realize student government’s real role on campus. This role is to give a sophisticated mask of progress (sometimes called conservative values) to the belch of consumer greed and apathy coming out of places like the Bomb Shelter, Fed Hall, and the corporate tents that now grace the campus every September. The university is failing into line with a consumerist society whose motto seems to be “shop tii ya drop and don’t rock the boat.” The consumerist society brings much opportunity for discussion of its implications. For example, dare I ask whether a society that becomes obsessed with things can be ethical?

January 25th strike? To the Editor, “900 turn out for march protesting underfunding.” So ran the headline on the March 14th, 1986 issue off mprint. Something called the “Joint Action Committee on university undefinding” had organized that many people from the university to demonstrate and march from the campus to the Marsland Centre (King & Erb, former location of Waterloo municipal government.) Endorsing this event, and among those marching, was thenpresident Dr. Doug Wright. The funding situation for postsecondary education (PSE) has been deteriorating steadily and is now significantly worse than it was back in 1986. Nevertheless, compared to the currently proposed ‘reforms’ to the federal contributions to PSE, this pattern of spending cuts, hition hikes and extra fees appears as a mere exercise in “nickel ‘n diming.” Under the Liberals’ financing plan, students in Canada would be wrung Bigtime. “Lifelong learning” could turn into lifelong paying. Many students now know this. If they don’t, they really should. But what is not well known nor well reported in the media, and what is difficult to follow in a nation as big as Canada, is the scale of the opposition.

On January 25 th, students right across _Canada will be saying _ “enough is enough!” It may encourage students here to know how broadly this day of protest against the cutbacks is being organized. According to the latest details, there are seventeen campuses involved in British Columbia; as well, the University of Calgary, the University of Lethbridge, the University of Regina, the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg, and Saint-Boniface; sixteen campuses in Ontario, twenty in Quebec, and eleven in Nova Scotia. In addition to all of these universities, students at other campuses are beginning to get involved. High school students will also be involved. For example, on November 16, one Ottawa school administration cancelled classes because students were going to be at the Parliament Hill demonstration; also, hundreds of students marched from Aylmer to take part that day! And, on December 9 in Guelph, 1500 high school students walked out of classes to protest the social security review. Many trade union locals and labour councils (including the Waterloo Regional Labour Council) have endorsed the day of protest, as have organizations such as the National Anti-Poverty Association. These groups understand better than many students that “students” are not a “special interest,” and that we have to fight the governmnet’s agenda together. Thus, events for January 25th

in Waterloo are being organized in solidarity with the community and with dozens of similar protests in other cities and provinces. Our concerns about underfunding for the PSE will be given a higher profile than they have received for quite a while. B. Smyth Wuterluo

One not forgotten To the Ed&w, I’m reading along the first article in Imprint thinking, “Oh no, not again.” I’m not having much of a problim agreeing with everything written, but then it strikes me. “The 14 Not Forgotten memorial service is intended to remind us that these women were killed in a senseless act of violence for one reason only: they were women.” - Imprint (used without permission, 00~s.) Now WHY is there only ONE reason? I’ll tell you: people forget the “bad guys.” That’s right, not anywhere was there the mention of Marc Lepine. No one seems to have compassion for the “bad guys.” No one searches to find out why the “bad guys” went “bad.” This memorial service is for more than ONE reason, some propaganda related and

well-meaning. But let’s take time and think about “bad guys,” specifically the single, lonely madman that gunned down these women. I remember hearing, which may or may not be true, that Marc Lepine was a socially rejected fellow. Despised by women and feeling the pain of loneliness, and frustrated by society’s mistreatment of him. Imagine the pain. Imagine asking every person you liked to go out with you and getting turned down. Imagine wanting just one intelligent female to find a shred of compassion, and perhaps even love, in her heart for you, but not getting it (change the genders appropriately when imagining.) Can you feel the pain now? Can’t you understand just a little, and perhaps find a shred of pity (at least) for the “heartless killer” that everyone paints him up to be? Remember everything about the event, not just the 14, but the one. Not just the people called “victims” by the media, but the “victims” of society. Remember the ‘*bad guys”! Now let’s take time and think about “victims.” We’ve all fallen victim to the media. We’ve all fallen victim to the propoganda. We are victims, and yet we don’t even take time to realize it. The media paints the scence of violence against women by men. Stop and think. Does it really matter that it was women that were shot and killed? NO! What matters is that fourteen

.;you

human beings were killed. Does it matter that it was a man that gunned them down? NO! What matters is that someone couldn’t get the help they needed from society and did something wrong out of confusion, frustration, and perhaps anger. Do you see the scenarios they paint? If someone told you about someone stealing, would you have compassion? Probably not. What if someone told you they stole to feed their family ? Probably. What if someone told you they stole because the merchants over-charged, and to feed their family? Probably. Look at these three scenes. In the first scenario, the “thief’ is “bad.” In the second scenario, the “thief’ is “good.” In the third scenario, the “thief’ is good, and someone else is “bad.” We are forced to get information from a biased source, but if we get many different sources, then we can attempt to eliminate that bias. So please honestly rethink the scenario and not fall “victim” to someone eises interpretation. I guess this about concludes my venting of frustration. So before you go read something else, please remember the following: ONE bad event happened December 6th, 1989, ONE set of people died, and ONE person’ made a BIG mistake. ONE not forgotten.

the composition of ‘something’ to how organisms interact. However, this is not always possible, some ‘somethings’, such as gravity, can be difficult to examine directly. So we resort to other techniques; we construct mathematical models whose results we then measure against reality. If the model not only describes what we do know, but also enables us to predict behaviour that we weren’t previously aware of, then it is a very wonderful model indeed. [“A Brief History of Time”, by Stephen Hawking, has a detailed discussion of this]. For all I know, gravity may be the result of many little gnomes, but if so, they are gnomes whose behaviour reliably imitates our model for gravitation. Science, for all its glory, is humble where it counts, it openly advertises the limits of its knowledge (we call them research areas}.

Lepine: feminist hero? To the Editor, On Dec. 6, 1989, Marc Lepine became a feminist hero. His “sense-

less” murder of 14 female engineering students at Ecole Polythechnique in Montreal did more to raise the public’s awareness of violence against women than any previous act, statement, or event ever did. Lepine’s murder of these women brought feminist groups and their cause into the national and international spotlight on an unprecedented scale. In gratitude to Marc Lepine, it seems only fitting that women’s groups across the country take time on Dec. 6 and remember this man and his conttibution to the feminist cause. The deaths of these 14 young women was a terrible tragedy for the victims, their family, and their friends. Even so, these women were not martyrs, they were murder victims. I don’t know how strongly any of these women were dedicated to the feminist cause or if any of them belonged to a women’s group, but even if they did, Lepine did not seek out this particular group of women to kill because of their dedication to the feminist cause: he was an angry man who was seeking revenge for what he perceived to be an injustice that was committed against him by feminists in general. The women he killed were merely a convenient target for his anger, The deaths of these women were a tragedy indeed, but no more tragic than the countless murders and horrible deaths that happen every day, every week, and every year around the world. Are we to take a special day to remember each one of these? Are they any less important? What could be more tragic that 15 000 people, most of

I can understand that those who feel very strongly about women’s issues would want to make sure that others were aware of the tragedy of what Marc Lepine did and so I can understand why there will also be a memorial services at UW and other universities across Canada. What I dislike is the way that women’s groups all across the nation are using this tragedy to further their own purposes. I wonder if the reality of this tragedy doesn’t provide some sort ofemotional fulfillment for women who feel jilted by society, or life in general. Finally there is something, and someone (insert Marc Lepine or men in general) on which to place the blame for their problems. Were the 14 women killed really that important to anyone who didn’t know them? Are most people really that concerned about people they don’t know who have beent the victims of some horrible event? Does anyone care enough about strangers to forego their Wednesday night at the Bomber and instead donate the money they would have spent to help with relief efforts in Rwanda? If that was true, there would be a lot less hungry people in the world. In my opinion, its not the lives of the 14 women that are important to the people who are determined to make everyone remember this day, it is the causes of feminists that are of utmost concern. Making it seem as if people are so concerned with the loss of these 14 individuals is the real tragedy. Kevin Miller, Waterloo

them women and children, starving to death every day? What makes the death ofthe 14 students so important is that a very vocal segment of society, ie. women’s groups and feminists in general, have latched onto the tragedy and have made it the focal point of their “victim” ideology. On the face of things, women’s groups and feminists exist in order to bring about recognition of the rights of women and to help bring about changes in society that enable women to assume a role equal to that of men in society. I commend these efforts wholeheartedly. However, what disturbs me is the morbid impulse within these groups that drives them to commemorate the occassion of such tragedies as the Lepine murders rather than days that were great victories for women, such as the day that women finally received the right to vote in Canada. In my opinion, all that is happening here is a reinforcement of the “victim” identity. Let’s face it, if women were no longer considered to be victims, there would be no need for women’s groups or feminists. It is in these groups own best interest to make sure that the rest of us know that women are victims, always have been victims, and probably always will be victims. What I don’t understand is, why would women cling to a tragedy rather than fight for a victory? I can understand a memorial for the dead. The Ecole Polythechnique is going to have a simple memorial for the ,women who were murdered.

Say: If the whole Of mankind and Jinns Were to gather together To produce the like Of this Q&an, they Could not produce The like thereof, even if They baked up each other With help and support. - [Translation of the meaning of verse 17:88 of the Holy Q&an] by Muhammad Elrabaa special to Imprint

P

rophets who preceded Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) performed miracles to prove the divinity of their message. In the case of the Q&an the message itself is the miracle, Although prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did not know how to read or write,‘the Qur’an that was revealed to him was (and still is) the highest pinacle of literary beauty and excellence in the Arabic language. Not only was producing the Qur’an beyond the ability of the prophet (PBUH), but as God declares in the verse above it is beyond the ability of ALL of humanity and spirit-kind (i-e Jinns). Over the 23 years of revelation, God challenged humankind four times to produce a book like the Qur’an, and they could not do it. Although people tried to stifle the Qur’an they could not meet this challenge. The nonbelievers of Mecca at that time (who were the literary giants of their time) tried and failed miserably. In fact, after a while they even quit trying to meet the challenge. Then God reduced the challenge for them; Produce ten chapters of the like of Qur’an. Yet they failed again! And again God reduced the challenge for them; Just

produce one chapter! Justone! Yet they failed again. They still tried everything to banish the Qur’an from the face of the earth, and again failure awaited them. Not only that, but God challenged them once again; Try to produce a chapter that is even remotely like the Qur’an! They failed again, and the whole world has failed since. This challenge is still there in the Qur’an, and everyone who disbelieves the Qur’an can still pool together their abilities and resources to try and produce one like it. But they can not. Why? Because it is the word of God that was perfectly preserved for the past fourteen hundred years! The Q&an is not only preserved as a written text, but also as a spoken text. The pronounceation of each letter, word, or sentence in the Qur’an is preserved as if it was revealed yesterday.Every stopbetween verses or withinverses is there asthe prophet (PBUH) himself taught it to muslims fourteen hundred years ago! Muslims today read the Qur’an exactly as Angel Gebraiel read it to prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Not only that, but even the sayingsAlf the prophet (PBUH) that interpret the Qur’an are preserved. Never before or after the Qur’an would any text be perfectly preserved as such. You owe it to yourself to find more about this miraculous book and the messenger who delivered it. Both (the Qur’an and the prophet, PBUH) provide guidance to one forth of the earth population; are not you the least bit curious to find out why? For more information about Islam or a free copy of the Qur’an, please call Muhammad Elrabaa at x5035 or send an email to elrabaa@vlsi.uwaterloo.ca . .

championing of the boycott should present Codrington with an insurmountable obstacle. After all, I’m sure that his leadership is strong enough to eclipse the Canadian Federation of Students. In fact, organizing his own version of the Jan 25th boycott would provide a good test of those leadership skills. By itself, the presence of the CFS is not enough to sink the idea of a Jan 25 boycott. Perhaps the best argument in favour of dramatic tuition increases lies in the perception of students as a privileged group of economic opportunists. This perception underlies the fact that they do seemto occupy a privileged position. The economy that now bears the cost of students’ educations, also generates its power from an ever increasing component of what is euphemistically called “slave labour.” There is an almost conspiratorial silence that now buries the reality of (II long way tindamental andgruesome changes in the innocent structure of Canada’s CFS’s

We’ve come a long way from the innocent confUsion of an earlier age when soiled hippies pounded their raw-hide drums on the edge of campus. Now folks in administration, student government, and the student population, know exactly what they want and how to get it. They’re real go getters. This attitude is exactly what we need to survive in what Bush called “The New World Order.” Aside from the student government’s role of serving the interests of students,there is another valid concern of the Feds in opposing the proposed Jan 25 boycott of classes. Unfortunately, the bunch that will be waving the student banner is our Canadian m ‘ve Come Federation of Students from the (CFS). It is the CFS

F

inally” was the sentiment ex pressed by Stephen Mak, af ter winning the University of Waterloo Federation of Students contest for designing a new pub facility. Mak’s design was based on a relaxing environment that incqrporated a farm/barn motif that would compliment the historical heritage that the University shared with the farmland that it rests upon, and serve as a model of architectural innovation. The plans were initially based on the Federation of Students’ desire for a pub facility able to accommodate live entertainment with a seating capacity of over seven hundred. Students were tiring of the Bombshelter and after the Federation had invested over $180,000 into the pub, with limited success, tvy decided to make a change. ! The motion and proposals for a new student pub were initiated by the Federation of Students. A Federation sponsored contest for 4B tichitecture students allowed Stephen Mak to utilize his creative talents and produce the plans for Canada’s largest on-campus pub. A jury of professors, President mug Wright and Blake Millar, an a$hitect from Toronto, chose the dinning design and awarded Stephen Mak his $250.00 prize in the presence of numerous cheering ar’chitecture students, staff, & faculty. Wim Simonis, 1982-83 Presidint of the Federation of Students, &ted that “A motion was passed at the annual meeting held on Novtmber 28th, 1983. The Federation of Students empowered thems$lves at that time to prepare a proposal for a new pub facility. r The Federation wanted to incltide as many students in the design process as possible. The advisory committee that the Federation created consisted of and employed co-op engineering students and the aIlchitectura1 firm of Dunlap, Farrow and Aitkin from Toronto. The pftoject architect was a 1976 UW grad and the design architect was a 198 1 UW grad. The firm itself hked co-op architecture students to atisist with the project’s planning. The building was to be the property o$ the Federation of Students by agreement with the University of Waterloo. AII employees (manage+ & staff) were to be paid by the Fkderation of Students and only the F$nding and liquor licensing had to b& obtained through the University with the clause that the Federation rebet-ved all rights to its daily running. The majority of UW students a ’ ear to have supported this idea. SiB onis stated that “We ran a sur-

vey a year and a half ago, and nearly 100% of the students agreed to a new pub. Student support was cssential since the first proposal of an on-campus entertainment/bar facility was bitterly abandoned in 1977 & 1978 due to poor student support and political strife. Nevertheless, a referendum was inevitable and the 1983 executive crossed their fingers and awaited the results of the second proposal for a new pub...” We have waited a lung timefur the opportunity to build a new pub on this campus. The uppurtunity is now at hand and the pub is almost certainly a reality. Tom Allison, President, ,Federation of Students, 1983-84 Ifstudents are so hard up that they cannot uflurd to pay full bus fares, how is it that they can uffurd to blcild a pub and hockey rink? g tuition fees pose such a hardship, why would students voluntarily raise them tupay jur such luxuries? If students are as cunvinced about “quality of education If as they say they are, why nut use the fee increase tu build a new library (badly needed) or to hire new professors or buy new equipment. UW grad student, 1983 Perhaps the largest obstacle that the Federation had to deal with was the financing of such an enormous endeavour. The original goal was to build a pub for one million dollars and that the building itselfwould be self sustaining. Students, however, would be asked to support their new pub. The new President of the Federation of Students, Tom Allison (1983-84), spearheaded the referendum for the green light on Fed Hall. If the majority of UW students voted in favour of Federation Hall on July 2&h, and once again in September, the anticipated construction date was set for October 6th, 1983. The building was to be completed one year later. The Federation, however, had other problems to deal with. Even if Fed Hall got the green light, the students also had to vote on a Federation fee increase. The Federation fee increase was needed to secure a $1.5 million loan from the university’s Board of Governors for the building of Fed Hall. The Fedcration would also give $250,000 to furnish the new pub. A $7.50 per term, non refundable Fed fee would go directly into the $1.5 million $1.2 dollar building cost where million would go directly into Fed Hall with the rest set aside for architectural fees. The Federation agreed to donate $800,000 towards the project; however, the Federation worried about student support.

In the rough economic times, it was difficult to ask students to support such a building with their own finances. University of Waterloo students were already supporting the construction of a new arena so the campaign approach would have to be feasible and innovative in order to gain the financial backing from the UW student population. The fears of the 1983 Federation of Students were quickly quelled by the anticipated support based on the 1983 referendum over a proposed new pub. In the previous referendum, 75 percent of the UW student population indicated that they supported the creation of Federation Hall, while 72 percent indicated that they would be wiliing to finance it, With a record turnout of 46.5 per cent of eligibIe voters, the stu-

the budget, but was still over $400,000 while the highest bid was $500,000 over. The University’s Board of Governors instructed the architects to bring the building down to the budgeted size since the tenders were so close indicated that a large portion of the cost rested with the designer. Redesigning Federation Hall or scrapping Fed Hall became a threatening reality. The firm of Dunlap, Farrow and Aitken were instructed by the University of Waterloo Board of Governors to make the necessary alterations to the blueprints in order tailor down the costs. Ironically, the mezzanirle was now being removed due to financial comparisons. The architect’s fee had not even been discussed at this point but their workload had doubled! This haIf-racked uppruarh by either the Federutiun, the architects, or both, has got tu stop. It is a sure bet that if people can ‘t figure out the cost of the btlilding mare uccurately than within $400,000 $500,000, there are going to be bigger problems later on.

AIlison predicted a positive outcome and anticipated construction to commence in November 1983. The anticipated completion date of Fed Hall was extended four months from summer 1984 to fall 1984 because all of the expected tenders surpassed the Federation budget of $1 S. million. A tender submitted by Ball Brothers Construction came closest to meeting

Fed President, Tom Allison, exclaimed that the results were “beyond my wildest expectations.” Allison’s enthusiasm would last until the second referendum that fall, a referendum that had to be as positive as the summer vote in order to guarantee the building of Federation Hall. The second referendum was held to inform the fall students of the Federation’s plans

and to incorporate all full time and co-op students in the decision to construct. a new pub The second referendum, held on September 26 & 27th, 1983, was to approve the construction of Federation Hall and to increase the current Fed fee to $7.50 per term, per student. Students were asked to vote on a Iicensed facility with live entertainment and seating for 650 people with a mezzanine for additional students. Once again, the response was overwhelmingly in favour of Federation Hall. 78.3 per cent of the students who voted in the second referendum displayed their cnthusiasm for the new pub. Coupled with the 82 per cent who voted in favour of Federation Hall in the summer, the Federation of Students initiated the building of Federation Hall. Allison stated

Or so an Imprint article stated after the tenders had been received. This article also exposed a broadsheet that had been circulating on the University of Waterloo campus. The broadsheet suggested that students vote against Fed Hall and to protest “improper procedures by the Federation of Students,” and more viciously, Tom Allison himself. The Imprint article served to illustratcvariousactions that Allison had independently executed without consulting student council or the students. Calling the Federation Hall project as “disorganized and confused as it can get,” the article left UW students questioning where continued

their money was going and if Fed Hall would ever become a reality. Another student wrote a letter stating that Federation Hall was a “half-assed building” that would never be a benefit to the UW campus! Allison vowed that “Federation Hall will be built, and it will be built within the stated budget” and guaranteed that everyone would be kept informed about the construction of Federation Hall. After 6 1 revisions that ranged from scrapping a tunnel connecting Fed Hall to UW’s main tunnel system, the deletion of a basement, and changing the window manufacturers, $400,000 was saved, meeting the target price. Fed Hall would no longer have a basement; rather, it was to rest on a grade-level slab of cement, anchored by massive pilings descending far below the frost line, a method that prevented any extension of Fed Hall unless it was above ground. The most obvious deletions was the colonnade, a canopy designed to provide weather shelter from the parking lot. A fk-ther $30,000 in building costs and $50,000 in equipment costs were also saved by the architects by cutting kitchen space in half and by limiting the menu. The original semi-horseshoe bar would be altered to a straight and shorter bar with two satellite bars for wait staff. After years in the planning stages, months offrustration and negotiation, Federation Hall was officially set to begin within thirty days. The Federation of Students announced that on February 7, 1984, a local construction firm had been awarded the contract to build Federation Hall. Out of the ten tenders submitted, only three were over the budget of S1,550,000 with the highest bid being $1,578,000; the lowest bid being $1,490,967. University of Waterloo president, Dr. Doug Wright, moved, seconded by Tom Allison, that the lowest tender receive the contract. The motion was passed and the contract was awarded to Lavern Asmussen, a Waterloo contracting firm whose bid came in at $60,000 under the set budget. Allison was quoted as being “elated, relieved, and anxious to get on with the job.” Allison was also in the running to maintain his position as Federation President for another year. After receiving 43% of the student vote (41% co-op alone) Allison was reelected as Federation President for the 198485 term. The sod-turning ceremony for Federation Hall was celebrated on Tuesday, March 13,1984, fivemonthsafterconstructioncommenced. Federation president, Tom Allison and University president, Dr. Doug Wright turned the sod and then moved to the Bombshelter for a reception. As of March 30, 1984, bulldozing had begun and trees were being transplanted from the building site to other areas on campus. Yet, despite the obvious signs of construction, many students were not aware of the location of Fed Hall. Students did not realize that it was to built off Columbia St. northwest of Village 1, close to the University Club. Tom Allison stated that “FederationHall is a little behind schedule, but we are shooting to be open by the end of October.” With few changes, the new pub would be completed within its budget. The only major expense would be a new “state of the art” sound system that would run between $60 70,000. A manager for Fed Hall had also been hired by the Federation. Jeremy Hunt was selected out of 150 possible candidates. Mr. Hunt fulfilled all of the requirements and had vast experience in the food and beverage industry. Stating that his main priority was to “get it open,” Hunt also commented that his management would be efficient, innovative, and above all, responsible to student needs. Tom Allison released the budget to quash rumours that Fed Hall was $500,000 uver budget. The complete breakdown came in at $1.97 million with the breakdown going as follows: $I, 490,967 -building contract $165,000 -fees and allowances

price

$100,000 -furnishings $25, 000 -video/satellite equipment $70,000- sound system $50,00 -cash registers $45,000 -liquor and beer dispensing unit $10,000 - glassware and loose furnishings $10, 000 -inventory Allison stated that when the referendum was held, the students voted on the building contract price which was not to exceed $1.55 million dollars. The building did come in under budget and all costs over and above the building contract were approved by Student Council. The official opening date of Federation Hall was to be on November 14th, followed by a gala opening on the 15th, 16th and 17th. The opening date would have been sooner, but the late arrival of windows made for a chilly evening. Prior to the grand opening, Allison found himself asking for a $110, 000 loan to help pay for the $500,000 that council spent over the $1.55 million dollar budget. The $350,000 that council had in itsaccount wasnot enough to pay for the debt incurred from upgrading. One financial solution that the The Federation proposed was the establishment of a line of credit to provide the necessary cash. This solution was approved by the CIBC and the money was secured. In defence of the overspending, Allison commented that the upgrading would enhance Fed Hall and if the money was not spent “we wouldn’t be happy, and therefore the students wouldn’t be happy!” Well, the students weren’t going to be very happy to find out that they were not invited to the grand opening gala, complete with live entertainment and a buffet that their Fed fees had paid- for. Admission to this star-studded event was by invitation only. Essentially, the very investors in Federation Hall were banned from the grand opening of their own pub. The liquor licence board required pictures of Fed Hall prior to granting the licence and these were not taken until Monday, November 10. Allison managed to obtain a special liquor licence for the night of the 14th, but-his problems were far from over. Within hours of the news that students were not invited to the gala opening of Fed Hall, students across the University of Waterloo campus began a campaign to demand an explanation. A demonstration was organized by some unknown persons who quickly put up posters all over campus in order to generate an angry mass of students to protest the fact that students were not considered equal investors in Fed Hall. The posters were in the form of invitations, inviting all of the UW student population to a party outside Fed Hall on the 14th. The poster also told students to BYOB (bring your own booze), a saying that prompted President Wright to meet with Allsion on the morning of the gala. That night, a contingent of close to 400 angry students marched up to Fed Hall, geared to protest and create a scene, only to be greeted by Tom Allison who welcomed them to “their” building and invited the disgruntled mob to join the festivities, which they immediately and justifiably did, Over half of the guests at Fed Hall that evening were the

doors. The reactions to the new pub were overwhelmingly positive. There was the odd complaint about slow service, but the staff and guests all attributed this to the fact that it was Fed Hall’s opening night. Fed Hall would not yet see an immediate opening however. Plumbing problems (which, incidently, have only just been remedied!) caused concern as did the wait for the final building tests. January 1985, the Federation began to pub-

the underage population that “the $7.50 user fee is not a user’s fee, and therefore does not guarantee use of the building.” Mr. Hunt, manager of Fed Hall was concerned that “nine out often students would smuggle in their own liquor and order plain cokes all night.” or get friends to buy them drinks. Fed Hall was already encountering problems with fake I.D. and having the wait staff constantly check for I.D. was unfeasible and unrealistic. Armbands, stamped hands, and liquor tickets had already been suggested but both Allison and Hunt were hesitant over which one was the safest. Students were already annoyed with the quick frisks arid groping of student’s coats and purses boih upon entry and exit to determine whether liquor was being smuggled in and glasses smuggled out.

On August 6,1985, a new face appeared at Fed Hall, and his name was Chuck McMullan, the new manager. Since Chuck’s arrival, Fed Hall has become a pub/entertainment facility that has set precedent for other universities to follow. With devotion and perseverence, Mr. McMullen has opened Fed Hall up to new concepts and creative ideas that keep bringing students, staff, and faculty to its doors. Fed Hall has been used as a village evacuation centre during bomb threat sCareS. Annually, it provides ample space for all returning alumni during homecoming, and is notorious for the Remanco Crashes of ‘8% 93! The first homecoming at Fed Hall was in 199 1, as was the first Summerfest and its firit New Year’s Eve party. The addition of pool tables and the sports tables have proven sucessful, as has the new Fed Pizza! Each year there are numerous ways that Fed is usdd for students.

Underage students who paid their Fed fee felt alienated from a piece of their investment, thus demanding an explanation and a solution to their dilemma. Fed President, Tom Allison reminded

T

he Warrior basketball squad had a disappointing Christmas losing two games to

teams from the United States. The Warriors lost 93-7 1 to the University of Findlay in Ohio. Mark Hopkins led the team in scoring with 16 points and two rebounds.

A healthy Tom Balfe, seen above fighting for a rebound, would be just what the doctor ordered as the Warriors kick off their ‘95 season. Balfe averaged 16 points a game last Imprint file photo season.

Sean Van Koughnett had 13 and eight rebounds. “We are still struggling offensively,” said coach Tom Kieswetter after the two games. “We are not consistent. We are playing confL1sed.” Somegoodnews came, though, as Tom Balfe, who had been out earlier with a knee injury, played in both games. He is close to 100 per cent and is expected to be ready to go when league play starts next weekend. Balfe had 11 points and seven rebounds. In its second match-up with the teams from the States, Waterloo went up against Westminster. Waterloo outscored Westminster in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as they lost a close one 6 l59. Sean Van Koughnett had 22 points and six rebounds, while Scott Carrel and Nick Poulimenos had 15 and 11 points respectively. “Defensively, we are playing strong andintense,” said Kieswetter as he looks to the start of the season with some major concerns. “We are running out of time. League play will start soon. We need other players to step up and we have to become more consistent,” Kieswetter continued. The Warriors next action will be tonight at 6 p.m. against the Toronto Metropolitan Police, as Durham College pulled out of the game. The police squad will not be taken lightly by the Warriors. Police team members Rob Samuels and Mike Forrestal both played for the National team before joining the police force. points

n the last meet of the term, Waterloo hosted the top-ranked McMaster Marauders. Woefully over-matched, the Warriors and Athenas put up a brave fight but in the end, McMaster doubled the scoring of the Waterloo squad. The men fell by a score of 87166, while the women were outscored 73-162. The meet was not without its highlights for the Waterloo team though. On the womens’ side, Tereza Maccl won every event she swam in. Maccl competed in the gruelling 800m freestyle and the equally difficujt 4OOm individual medley, taking top honours in both. She also anchored the first place 200m medley relay. Joining “Tez” on the relay were Noelle Aplevich, Kara Rice, and Deanna Hlywka. Aplevich also finished third and fourth in the 100 and 200m backstrokes respectively, while Rice was second with a personal best in the lOOm backstroke

and fourth in the 400m I.M. Hlywka was outstanding as she placed first in the 200m backstroke and second in the 1OOm freestyle. Rookie Sara Sanchez also looked sharp in the 400m freestyle fmishing second and adding a fourth in the 200m. Tatjana Sabados was third in the 100m butterfly and veteran Jennifer Beatty captured second place in the 200m breaststroke. Lori Amott, Laura Anderson and Claire Meiklejohn rounded out the diminished Athena squad and finished third, fourth and fifth in the 200m individual medley. The men also found themselves out-numbered and out-gunned even though the Mac team rested some of their best swimmers after the previous weekend’s Canada Cup meet in Toronto. This left the door open for some of the Warriors to claim some high placings though. Leading the Warriors was veteran Ian Hunt who was first in the 50m sprint freestyle and the 1OOm butterfly. Hunt was narrowed out

in the lOOmfreestyle and had to settle for second. Perhaps most impressive though was the gu tsy effort by Brian Roughley. Roughley finished second in both the 400 and 200m frcestyles against some heavy competition. Roughley also led off the second place 4xSOm freestyle relay and proved himself to be the most consistent swimmer on the team. Ed Furs and Chris Nagy finished first and second respectively in the 20Om butterfly. Other notables included the fourth, fifth and sixth placefinishesofJames Ryans,Chris Palin and Grant Hutchinson over the course of the 800m freestyle. These rookies could be the distance freestylers of fllture teams. John Harland managed a third in the 200m Z.M. as did Adrian Mendes in the 50m freestyle. The team has just returned from training camp in Fort Lauderdale Florida and will spring back into action tomorrow for a tri-meet at U ofT against the Blues and the Brock Badgers.

he Warrior hockey team spent their Christmas vacation jumping on planes and buses as they traveled to compete in tournaments in Saskatchewan and Guelph in a time span of less than a week. They got off to a bad start, losing 9-3 to both the University of Saskatoon and St. Lawrence University. John Wynne, Geoff Schneider and Sheldon Gilchrist scored for Waterloo against Saskatoon, while Wynne, Marc Vaughan and Chris Kraemer scored against St. Lawrence, who eventually won the tournament. “The loss to St. Lawrence was a combination of poor goaltending and also the fact that we took too many penalities,” said head coach Don McKee. The penalities were a major factor because the Warriors gave up four power-play

goals as a result. ’ Waterloo took a total of 46 minutes in penalities and had 12 minors. The Warriors met the number-two ranked University of Calgary Dinosaurs in their next game. The Warriors took the game 6-4, thanks to some great goaltending and the players making the best of the scoring possibilities. The next day the Warriors returned to Ontario and headed right over to their toumament in Guelph. Guelph was waiting for the Warriors, crushing them 7- 1 and revenging their loss to Waterloo in last year’s tournament. Both goal tenders were used in this game as the team found it hard to find the net and keep the puck out of their own net. And in their final game of the toumment, Waterloo faced its arch rivals, Laurier and beat them 3-2. The game against Conestoga College that took place earlier was also included as part of

with a bang:

versus

the tournament. Waterloo easily won 8- 1. Scorers against Laurier were Dean MacDonald, Jason Mervyn, and Chris Kramer. Sheldon Gilchrist had Waterloo’s only goal against Guelph. Despite the disappointing showing, things are expected to improve. Mike Chambers, a right winger and centre man, has joined the Warriors. Chambers, a former Stratford Culliton, is a second-year kinesiology student who is a strong defensive player and is expected to play very well for the Warriors. Assistant captain Greg Allen is back skating after having knee surgery before Christmas. The Warriors will be in action against

Laurier

Laurier tomorrow night in what coach MC Kee calls “their most important game of the season.” The Laurier game will most likely decide if the Warriors will be fighting for first place or last place. The game will be at the Waterloo Recreational Complex at 7:30 p.m. Of special note, the Waterloo Warriors will join forces with the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks on Monday night to face the Canadian National team. Warriors who are expected to play in the game are: Jason Mervyn, Geoff Rawson, Sheldon Gilchrist, Chris Kraemer, Todd Gleason, GeoffSchneider, John Wynnc, Dean MacDonald, and Joe Harris.

T

he CIAU’s top-ten list is a lot like the list of attendees at Christmas dinner. A few close relatives you see a couple of times a year, some more who haven’t made it home in recent years, and another group for whom even once a year is too much. Top of the list is the Winnipeg Wesmen, undisputed kings of the castle until someone topples them. As University of Waterloo hoops fans saw in November at the Naismith Classic, the Wesmen are the class of the CIAU at the moment. And, as usual, you don’t have to look far down the list to find an OUAA West team. The McMaster Marauders weigh in at no. 3, while the no.-7 Brock Badgers find themselves in the top rankings for the first time in a while. But how will the Warriors do, faithful readers ask. That’s a tough question. And the tough job of prognostication begins below. The teams are listed in order of predicted finish, with last year’s order of finish and win-loss record included.

Brock Badgers ‘93-‘94: 4th, 7-6 ‘94-‘95: Ist, 12-2 Brock will have a dominating front court with 7’“0” Niagara University transfer Clint Holtz playing post, but last year’s OUAA West most valuable player David Picton is the man who will make the Badger offence run. Picton is listedas a point guard, but look for him to take even more of the scoring load with the graduation of three-point expert Allen McDougall. “The Paperboy” led November’s Naismith Classic Tournament in scoring with 92 points. He-finally looks his age, and this season will see him come of age by leading the Badgers to a division title. The Badgers will lose some experience with the graduation of Mike Pullar, Jamie Huebert, and Dave McKay, but forwards Sean Sandel (@lo”, fourth year) and Jason Tatti (6’3+‘, third year) should lead a solid core of middle-year players to back up Picton and Holtz.

McMaster Marauders ‘931’94: Ist, 12=2 ‘94~‘95: 2nd’ I O-4 The Marauders

are still

a re-

markably talented team, but will miss Jack Vanderpol’s meaty presence in the paint, not to mention his 16.7 boards per game, more than CIAU voters think. Mac may not have the big cen-

tre to replace Jack, but does have some forwards warming the pines that other teams would love to have starting. Try this list out for size: Titus Charmer, Shawn Francis, Keegan Johnson, Tom Newton, and Lance Postma. At 6’7”, Newton and Postma are the tallest veterans, but Mac can win 10 games with just forwards on the court. How can we forget about the guards, with Marc Sontrop and former Guelph Gryphon Rich Wesolowski handling the ball?

Western Mustangs ‘930’94: 2nd, 9-5 ‘94-‘95: Srd, 9-5 Western is another team that loses a great deal of leadership in graduating players, namely West division scoring leader Michael Lynch and centre John Vermeeren. This, combined with a new head coach in Art Shapp, means that UWO can expect a rebuilding year. The ‘Stangs should be led by a trio of third-year players: 6’7” centre Marty Hatis and guards Blake Gage and Jonathan Dingle. But don’t count UWO out completely; the Notre Dame of the north, Western always seems to find their way into the final four.

How can I pick the Gryphons to finish third in the division when they lose their scoring and emotional leader Chris O’Rourke to graduation? With eight first and secondyear players on the squad, Guelph will have a tough time of it, but the mysterious voodoo of nine-year head coach Tim Darling may be enough. Veterans Rob Henry, Brian Moore, and Shawn Wilson will have to mold the team.

Waterloo’s biggest question mark one year ago was the post position. After head coach Tom Kieswetter handed him the starting centre job, Tom Balfe scored 16 points per game and opened up UW’s offence, a major contribution to the team’s 8-6, third-place finish. the return

year two seasons ago, 8. J. York elected to sit out this year, leaving a number of players clamouring for the starting point spot. Tom Balfe’s return from injury should spell good things for the centre position, setting up a healthy competition with MarkHopkins for the starting role. Forward Mike Stroeder should be the rookie with the most impact, but whether this Warrior team can improve on last year’s third-place finish is questionable. The Gryphons taught Waterloo a tough lesson in the PAC last February: playoffs are where it counts and leadership is the key to winning big games. Who will step up to lead the team alongside Van Koughnett? Balfe, Hopkins, and Poulimenos have to ask that question of themselves.

Lakehead Nor’Westers ‘93=‘94: Sth, 7-6 ‘941’95: 6th’ 4-10 Without a Lakehead roster in hand, predicting their performance would be an exercise in dart-throwing. Next weekend, we’ll have a good look at them, though, as they arrive for a doubleheader on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m.

That’s right. Laurier will win a game this season. In fact, they’ll win four. With 6’9” centre Shawn Roach back for his fifth year and guard Peter Kratz emerging as a player who can singlehandedly take over a game, the Hawks are due for a rise out of the division cellar. Kratz was last season’s OUAA West rookie of the year, and is an instant most-valuable-player candidate this year.

f the Warrior and Athena track and field teams continue on in the same way they did at the Western Indoor Competition before Christmas, then the other teams better watch out! On Saturday, December 3, the Warriors and Athenas competed against teams from Western, York, and Laurentian in their first indoor competition of the season. Waterloo had a great showing. A total of 13 personal bests occurred throughout the course of the day as the rookies and veterans alike showed their stuff for the first time this year. Jason Gregorie continued his winning ways from the cross country terrain onto the track, as he took the title in the men’s 3,000-m. Jeff Irwin and Kelly Slough both ran personal best in the men’s 1,500-m. Irwin also had a personal best in the 300-m. Rookie Jason Simpson posted a personal best in the sprint hurdks

Sue Cadarette, competing for Waterloo for the first time in a few years, ran a great 300-m race posting a time of 43.9 seconds. Alicia Steele and April Harper both wiped off 60-m runs and ran as p&t of the women’s 4-by-200-m relay. Steele ran her usual excellent hurdle race, while Harper finished off the day with a 300-m and a 4by-400-m race. This showing gives great promise to the rest of the year. The team has many strong rookies in all sprint, distance and field event. The track and field team’s next compeeition will be tomorrow at the University of Toronto for the first qualifier of the season.

ith the revival of punk and bands like Offspring and Green Day implanted at the top of the music charts, it was just a matter of time before a British ska act picked itself up, dusted itself off and hit the road claiming a link to punk and therefore a right to reform and tour. Ska, a musical form combining the energy ofpunk with the danceability of reggae took hold of the U.K. in the late seventies and early cighties and during this time also enjoyed a large cult following in North America. The Specials spearheaded this ska movement with the widely know 2-Tone Label, a label that saw U.K. bands like Madness, The Beat and The Selector grow in international prominence. With punk riding a crest of popularity lately, Coventry, England’s the Specials graced us with their presence in somewhat of a haphazard reunion. The fact that the Specials were missing three of the original seven members from the ori& Especially special nallineupinnowayhaG+ pered their lively performancc at the Lyric in Kitchener. The social and politically aware lyrics were well received andjudging by the way lead vocalist Neville Staples jumped around on stage the Specials looked as glad to be back as the excited crowd was to have them back. Original members; guitarist Koddy ‘Radiation’ Byers, bassist Horace ‘Gentleman’ Panter and guitarist Lynval Golding, kept up a high energy stage presence while expertly working through all the expected dance hits such as “Rat Race,” “Gangsters,” “Rudi, A Message To You” and “Concrefe Jungle.” The plethora of well executed hit singles proved

that the Specials, the driving ska sensation of old, were back in full force. The eager crowd for the most part was up to some heavy pogoing and some light moshing as The Specials worked the crowd into a frenzy with songs like “Do The Dog,” “Nite Club,” and “Too Much Too Young.” Skanking was the order of business for those dressed in pork pie hats, skinny ties and black jackets. Gaudy checkered patterns in every combination were only out done by the number of individuals with shaved heads, tatoos, and eighteen-holed docks who added their distinctive presence to the dancing mass. Such a spry and upbeat showing made it difficult to believe that thirteen years have past since the Specials were last together. Unfortunately, it is also hard to believe it actually was the Specials up on stage, with little over half of the original members present. The notable absence of keyboard& and founding member Jerry Dammers left many to turn a blind eye to the questionable use ofthe Specials name. Even so, the crowd of ska enthusiasts gathered to witness the show did not let this minor fact dampen their enjoyment. From the initial punk guitar licks right up until the final notes of “Ghost Town” faded into the night, Y , the crowd Special was pumped and dancing away. Although not a true Specials reunion, it was good to hear the otd tunes and see just what made this band so unique. The night of aggressive ska music was opened up by Toronto’s own One. One set the tone early on, filling the dance floor with large number of crazed skankers. Well know for a vigorous stage show, One generated a brisk beat that got the enthusiastic mass moving and grooving early on to their recent reggae rock hits “Wide Load” and “54 46.” Together the skafest combination the Specials and One provided enough impeccable ska for even the most die hard fan.

Tistheseason tobeHollv Holly Cole Trio Humanities Theatre, Friday, December 16

he Humanities Theatre has terrific sound; for a small venue it rivals any place I’ve attended in Toronto. And when the performer is one like the Holly Cole Trio, 1 can’t think of a better place for a superb show on a snowy night. Beginning with a quiet, acoustical version of “The Little Drummer Boy,” the Holly Cole Trio set the stage for a fantastic night. David Piltch and Aaron Davis created a wonderful atmosphere, Davis’ piano softly accompanying Piltch’s hands slapping his bass. When Holly Cole finally joined them for the next number, a blues-y Christmas piece, her voice made it complete, and set the show in motion. Initially looking a little stiff, Holly Cole seemed almost awkward for the first few

songs, although it didn’t affect her singing. It was a little strange to hear her powerful vocals while her body simply stood rigid in the centre of the stage, but before long she loosened up, announcing that she was “happy ‘cause my gammy’s here,” and getting more into her songs. The trio played songs from all of their albums, although there were far more seasonal tunes and cuts from Dart ‘t Smoke in Bed, their latest recording, than the others combined, And while the seasonal songs were well done, it was during the songs from their albums that the group really shone. “Downtown,” from their first album Girl Talk, was outstanding, largely due to Piltch’s use of his bass for percussion. Commenting that “this guy pounds that fucking thing,” Cole related

envise great evening, the biggest one being the fluctuating sound levels. Despite rhe great sound quality, the volume jumps throughout the show were enough to distract and irritate, although they did ruin it by any means. Overall, however, the show was extremely welldone, and I smile smugly at all who missed it.

Longfellows shortontalent C A Christmas Bash the Lyric Wednesday, December

Headlining were the 13 Engines, Our Lady Peace, and the Killjoys; preceding were Hamilton’s highly acclaimed Tristan Fsionic and Kitchener’s very own The Longfellows. Unfortunately, Tristan Psionic’s performance came’ very early in the evening and was long over by the time I arrived. Their stickers, however, were very much appreciated by the crowd as they

were pasted on everyone and everything by the end of the evening. The new Swallow Records of Kitchener have just released their first recording with The Longfellows. They aren’t exactly new to the local scene, which makes their poor performance surprising, The show wasn’t poor technically; the disappointment had much more to do with their presence, the idiotic things they had to say, and primarily, the fact that they are living out their fantasies of being “rock-n-roll stars.” Their mechanical jumps and kicks on stage looked as if they’d been practicing in front of a mirror, which was actually quite amusing (in that “you guys are really embarrassing yourself’ kind of way.) In this day when the guitar solo is a near dead art form, the Longfellows seem to think they belong alongside the true soloists Neil Young or J Mascis. (Give it up!) The local music scene has cxccllcd in the last couple of years, but unfortunately the Longfellows remain at the bottom of the heap. Kingston’s Killjoys managed to whip off a charged set of tunes

acking a bunch of bands into one venue on one evening isn’t ideal if you only are interested in seeing one or two of the bands. The problem is that individual performances are limi ted to 30 to 45 minutes and are somewhat rushed because of schcduling. This wasn’t a huge problem though, a few poor performances, but an entertaining evening regardless.

Indecent

ritten by Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park, DiscEusure is a movie that focusses on a timely theme: sexual harassment. The twist is that it’s the sexy girl harassing the guy. Michael Douglas gets passed over for a promotion in the electronics company he works for, and Demi Moore gets the job. It turns out that they had a fling years ago, when Douglas was a big womanizer. But now, he’s a happily married man, with the wife, mortgage and 2 kids deal. The actual harassment scene is not particularly original. It is exactly how one would imagine such an incident taking place, except of course,

conspire to get rid of him. And there is a scene ripped off from “Malice.” If you’ve seen the bit where Alec Baldwin gives his little “Who do you think they’re praying to?” speech, you’ve seen this scene too. Just sub in Demi Moore saying something along the lines of “I like to get laid, and if you’ve got a problem with that, 1’11 slit your throat.” There is also an unnecessary but interesting subplot dealing with virtual reality. It really has no point, but it filled some time, gave the special effects guys something to do, and gave the director one really big chance to make the audience jump. Demi Moore looks really good in this film. Despite having two children in the last couple of years, she is in good shape. As Douglas says to a co-worker, “She probably works out on a stairmaster for an hour

a day.

She could

out of both of us.” Douglas looks the same as he always does, except older. Though predictable in many ways, a movie that shows that COTporate white males are not always evil is a refreshing change.

proposal He says the same thing but no one believes him. All of his friends and co-workers find out about it, and they all think he’s slime. There are a couple of interesting dialogues in this film. A woman in Douglas’ division says that compared to men, woman have to work twice as long and twice as hard for less money. That’s such a cliche, retorts Dennis Miller (in a bit part, big surprise). “How do you think cliches become cliches?,” asks the woman. The other one was between Douglas and Miller’s wife. She is talking about how woman are oppressed. Douglas says that 80% of suicides are men, so who is being oppressed? She answers that men just aren’t tough enough. Douglas counters with “We don’t have our own distress line.” Miller doesn’t add much to the picture. The one scene where he really has to act is a write-off. How-

from their debut major label release, but it was Our Lady Peace who were the real show stoppers of the evening. Their debut release, Naveed, clearly stands on its own, and the performance is equivalent to any of the top Canadian acts. Increasing popularity with every show Our Lady Peace is sure to entertain on January 19th at the Bombshelter. Their brand of east asian music mixed with high energy Zeppelin-esque rock put the memory of The Longfellows far behind. The 13 Engines proved once again that they have a poor live show. Although there was a vast improvement from their summer tour, the energy flickered out after only a couple of songs. Unfortunately, they are of the belief that loud is better. A good hint that the amps are a wee bit loud is when the vocals, and guitars are distorted beyond recognition. Too bad their excellent studio sound can’t be appreciated in a live setting. Besides some boner acts, Our Lady Peace and the Killjoys are worth checking out again.

opular music’s greatest marketing juggernaut decimated wallets all over southern Ontario last month. Yes, we got The Rolling Stones in their prime... when they’re doing their best to sell you something. All cynicism aside The Rolling Stones really know how to put on a great show. They appeared tired for most of the show (insert aging rocker joke here), but once those now standard inflatable props made their appearance during “Sympathy For The Devil,“The Stones turned tiimme it up a few notches. After ripping through “Brown Sugar, ” “It’s Only Rock n’ Roll,” and “Street Fightin’ Man,” they left no doubt that even at their ages The Stones are still a premier rock band (refer to any Letterman episode for another geriatric rocker gag). Not surprisingly the inflatable props drew the biggest crowd reaction. There was a giant buddha, a steer skull, snakes, and Death himself (the other one, not Keith). The true star of the night was the massive stage and light show, The designers biought out all the stops: flamethrowers, flashpots, computer animation, and dancing lights. All they were missing was a giant mirrored disco ball for when they played “Miss You.” It was nice to know that they were spending all that money you were giving them

in order to entertain you. It would have been easy to drop a couple of hundred bucks at this concert. Starting with the fifty it cost for a ticket to the incredible array of merchandise. Vendors offered several t-shirts in the thirty dollar range, silk ties for another fifty, baseball caps for twenty-five, jean jackets for a hundred, and at the high end leather jackets for five

In fact, except for the five songs off Vimdm Lounge none of the other nineteen were written after 1978. Theplaylist wasn’t a greatest hits collection as was the case during the SteelWheels tour. They played some treats like “Monkey Man, ” “It’s All Over Now,” and “Far Away Eyes.” Unfortunately that also meant that some people’s favourite hits were left off the playlist (yes, I’m still bitter about the lack of “Gimme Shelter”).

classics made you realize that while the music was decent, it seems that Mick can’t find that extra five minutes to write some lyrics that don’t sound half-assed. Case in point: “I was a hooker/losing her looks/I was a writer/can’t write another book.” Yeah, Mick, how very Dylanesque. The band themselves offered no surprises. Charlie Watts kept the pace while looking bored as hell. Keith and Rondan’ gled their cigarettes and struck those classic gui1 tar poses. New bassist Daryl Jones broke with Stones’bassplaying tradition and actually moved. Sax manBobby Keys played outstandingly and really got to shine with several solos. Mick was mesmerizing. He used his commanding stage presence to the fullest and had the crowd eating out of his hands. Maybe he should lend a little of his expertise to Chris Barron of The Spin Doctors. Pity those poor souls who will be setting sail on the S.S. Rocks with the Spin Doctors. They are bad. Prediction 1995: The Spin Doctors wifl be replaced by robots. It shouldn’t be too hard, as all you have to do is program in one song and just keep changing the lyrics. Maybe the robots will even add a little personality. Their set might have been the longest hour of my life. They played “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Wrong” as well as “Mary Jane” which was introduced as a song about marijuana. Well I’ll be darned. How clever of them. By changing marijuana to Mary Jane they can keep on subverting today’s youth and Tipper Gore will be none the wiser.

Sutherland saysthere’s an element of truth to rumours the band feels Geffen Records hasn’t adequately promoted their new album, Twice Removed, in the United States. Drummer Andrew Scott’s relocation to Toronto has also made it difficult to work as a group. But Sutherland says the real reason the four members of Sloan are contemplating breaking up is they’re not certain they want to continue to live under a big-label record contract. They’ve already recorded two records for Geffen, and under Sloan’s contract, Geffen has until March to exercise its option for two more albums.

A Dreamer Of Pictures: Neil Young; The Man And His Music by David Downing Bloomsbury Publishing Limited $29.95, 248 pp. by Chris Imprint r\

Aldwotih staff

avid Downing paints an interesting portrait of Canadian born rock star Neil Young in the unauthorized biography A Dreumer Of Pictures: Neil Young; The Man And His Music. The book is as much a fan’s tribute to Neil Young’s longevity as a look into the life of this visionary musician through his lyrics. Downing’s accounts of Young’s life are intriguing although somewhat sketchy. While familiar with the music, Downing’s book lacks a solid core of information in which to wrap the constant references to Young’s lyrics. Downing fails to provide significant insight into Young’s personal life, mostly due to his inability to get an interview with Young. The book’s titlc,AD~eamerOj‘ Pictures: Neil Young; The kk~~ And His Music is an awkward description of the book which is based more on the music than the man. The true fan will no doubt find the references to Better obscure Young songs enlightening, but for most part they really are unnecessary. The title A Dreamer Of Pictures: Neil Yuung; The Man And His A4usic is perhaps a bit of misnomer. The book is indeed about Neil Young. The title would lead you to believe that the man would be immediate area of study, with the music acting as a sidebar to the events. Instead the music takes the stage fi-ont and centre. Neil Young’s often poetic lyrics are studied in

arresting detail. An attempt is made at every stage of his life to link his lyrics to the person. This works for some stages of Neil Young’s career, but for the most part it is grossly overdone. Even the titleA Dreamer Of Pictures is lifted from a line in Young’s “Cinnamon Girl”. Fitting the lyrics around the events of Neil Young’s life would have been the common approach. Downing does the opposite and tries to fit his life around the lyrics. It is an odd ap-

preach that does not lend itselfwillingly to a bibliography. Over the course of his career Young has written a number of lyrics of a telling and persona1 nature. This is where Downing misses his cue. Downing uses these songs to try to enter the psyche of Young instead ofusing the songs as a spring board to a discussion about his life. Young’s views on the world around him are carefully ex-

text with the child-like rhyming verses. March’s style is very cutting stepping on topics of abuse leading to miscarriage, sexism, intoxication and murder. On the other hand, the verse is for the most part fi.mny and definitely enjoyable. The text of The WildPar@ can be classified as a work that you appreciate for being great, maybe not for the demeaning messages it may send. Alongside a lapse of some of the more stringent standards that society sometimes places on the free minds of people, The Wild Party with Spiegelman’s excellent black and white drawings can be appreciated to the Fullest. Spiegelman is most notably known fbr MAUS, A Survivor’s Tule for which he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992. Following up that success won’t be easy, but Spiegelman is working with a poem that has long awaited a life through his drawings.

aduitefy,

panded upon, but accounts about his personal life are missing or left rather bare. Downing covers Young’s changing po#iticai views, his rants about society and his love of the mythical past quite well but aspects such as his two marriages and his female companions are briefly touched on. His children, who seem to be a major joy of his life are merely glossed over. Downing tends to skip by many of the important aspects of Young’s life. The birth of his first child and the break up of his first marriage are given minimal space. Downing clearly notes Young’s personal anguish when his second son is diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy. Even so, Downing does not make the Young’s family life an area of discussion. The deaths of close friends Bruce Berry and Danny Whitten obviously hit Young hard. Aside from his lyrics, any personal feelings toward their deaths are not included. These are all areas wehere a personal interview with Young would have been a great help. A Dreamer Of Pictures, at best, provides a sketchy chronological view of Neil Young’s life. This book is filled with uncompleted glimpses of his life that are unconvincingly substantiated with lyrics. Neil Young is a complicated individual. Downing unsuccessfully tries to describe Young’s life solely on his song lyrics and some previously conducted interview transcripts. Despite all the lyrical attempts to

esmond Morton is one of Canada’s Ieading historians, with the impressive abihty to combine detailed facts and figures with a riveting narrative. Xis latest book about Canadian military history, when Your N’umber ‘s Up, is an incredible, highly readable, and thorough survey of Canadian soldiers’ experience in the First World War. Few wars are as documented or analyzed as WWI. Innumerable texts, memoirs, and fictional works have explored its various aspects, ranging from minute details to sketchy, pan-continental overviews of the flow of events to intense, harrowing personal tales. Morton manages to bring something new to the subject: a history of Canadian soldiers that is detailed, fascinating, and personal, but also covering a broad spectrum ofthe war experience and the politics behind it. Many military histories tend to lose track of the plight of the foot soldier, the common men who do most of the fighting and dying. This book, if something is given less coverage, tends to minimize the larger themes of the war, focussing almost exclusively on the soldiers and line officers as people, each with their own story to tell rather than bit players in a larger drama. This is not a flaw; it keeps a powerful human aspect to the war, more so than many other books manage to attain, let alone keep. And by giving the “home front” as much attention as the front trenches, Morton drives home the degree to which the war dominated life at the time, influencing virtually every aspect of Canadian life. The chapters are organized by aspects of the soldier’s experiences: enlistment, moving “up the line,” going “over the top,” through to recuperation and demobilisation after a wound or discharge. Each section is meticulously researchedand documented, and written in Morton’s vivid

n the fall of last year, Marlon Brando was the subject of an embarrassingly vapid interview conducted by Larry King. Brando sat like a beached whale mumbling about his wonder plant salicornia, toyed with King and his camera, and displayed nothing but contempt for the industry which he had worked in and the art of acting which he had helped to define.

The interview only helped to reinforce the view that most people have of Brando - an actor, undoubtedly one ofthe best,who threw it all away and became an obese recluse. Such a view was reinforced by critics who saw Songs My M&w Taught Me, Brando’s autobiography, as the incoherent ramblings of an actor far past his prime. Although it’s easy to come to

style by citing specific instances during specific roles. The book is by no means complete, but does provide an insightful companion to heftier works such asPeter Manso’s biography. The book was written ‘with’ Robert Lindsey, and the conversa-

tional style of the book suggest that the book was more than likely spoken by Brando, and transcribed and edited by Robert Lindsey. While this suggests some laziness and a lack of ‘research’ by Brando into his own life, the book ends up strangely echoing Salinger’s

world. As anyone who knows anything about Brando’s career, his dedication to the American Indians,aswell asthe civil rights movement are as much a part of his life as his acting. At a time when Hollywood

examines most of the evidence presented by The Globe andMail and the CBC, drawing the conclusion that no real “scandal” existed at all, and that the “feeding frenzy” mentality of reporting led to a direct assumption that the worst was true without substantial proof.

Mulroney was strongly criticised for publicly “bashing” On-

It is here that Bain shines, raising interesting questions about the assumed role of media: that of publit watchdog.

by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff The Christmas season, having long ago mutated into another excuse for commercial excess, brings with it these three greatest hits collections. While it’s difficult to get used to such blatant cash cows, they don’t always suck and indeed are sometimes they are actually worth the money. Bob Dylan’s collection is the least representative of these three releases. Dylan’s first greatest hits collection, released in 1966 actually contained hits singles which were popular and made it into the charts, and they were also some of his best songs. His second collection, released in 1974 was a double album - more of a career retrospective released due to Dylan’s career slump in the early seventies. Twenty years later, we are tossed this bone of album cuts, most of which are, to say the least, obscure. This shameful collection does contain some great songs, to be sure. “Hurricane” remains one of Dylan’s greatest songs both musically and lyrically. The same can be said for “Jokerman,” “Gotta Serve Somebody,” and “Series of Dreams.” However, “Forever Young” is pretty boring, likewise for “Silvio” and “Under the Red Sky” is one of the worst songs he’s ever penned. What this collection lacks is cohesion. Fourteen tracks from over twenty albums does not a provide any adequate representation of

responsible for this collection seemed to have used the “flip a coin” method of selecting tracks - and it shows. Had the producer of this CD simply made up his mind to a) choose only good songsand b) at least make this a double album, there might be something to work with here. As it stands, this collection only serves to remind us how great :, and how shitty‘he A much better idea Zen a continuation of :ries, which started in 1991, yet remains limited to the albums released in that year. On the other hand, The V&y Best of Elvis Costello and the Attractions at least provides the neophyte was a reasonable cross section of Declan’s career. The first seven tracks, from “Watching the Detectives” and “(I don’t want to go to) Chelsea” to “Pump it Up” and “Oliver’s Army,” fairly represent all of Elvis’ early hits. Later selections like “Brilliant Mistake” and “Everyday I Write the Book”demonstrate a strict dedication to Elvis’ popular material, which is nice for people who don’t want to shell out the fifty odd dollars for Girls, Girls, Girls, the comprehensive 3 CD collection released in 1986. The major fault with this collection, aside from the fact that this is now the third Elvis Costello greatest hits collection, is that the track selection inexplicably stops at 1986.

More often than not when a band breaks up, they release a crappy collection of odds and ends to fulfill their recording contract. Often these efforts are disjointed. ThankfUlly Still In Hollywood is not a collection that falls into that category. James Mankey’s guitar work is solid and as usual the powerful voice of Johnette Napolitano bolsters the entire compilation. Concrete Blonde offer up live tracks, b-sides, and some unreleased material that proves their musical genius is not restricted to the confines of their albums. Complete with an indepth booklet comment-

Both their early punk influenced sound and their later dark, moody sound are found in equal amounts. Still in HoElywood is f’ar from a greatest hits, although it does include alternate takes on some of the big singles. The acoustic “Joey” and both the live “God Is A Bullet” and “Tomorrow Wendy” are as good as the album tracks, The rest of the album holds up quite well. There is not a weak song in the bunch. A surprising number ofcovers round out the sixteen song release. Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Kndws,” Concrete Blonde’s most popular cover to date, is a welcome addition. Other fine covers include Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” Rick Neilsen’s “Mandocello,” Bob Dylan’s “Simple Twist Of Fate,” and Nick Cave’s “The Ship Song”. The Concrete Blonde outtakes and b-sides are surprisingly strong. There is no filler here. For once an album of rarities comes across as a cohesive unit in presentation and is filled with quality tracks well worth having. Still /n Hollywood is a clear winner. “Real Grrrl” some light guitar leads into one of the tracks that focuses around Astbury’s lyrics. One of the more standout tracks, ‘Wack Sun,” uses Astbury on tambourine to establish the beat and tone for the tune. The next song, “Naturally High,” uses Craig Adams’ bass playing to keep the beat going. “Joy,” one of the softer tracks on the album uses an to help create an

Dylan, Ice Cube remains the best lyricist in rap. His early material remains his strongest, however Bsides and Bootlegs does showcase some of Cube’s less available, but equally powefil material. Despite the fact that six of the thirteen tracks are unneccessary remixes,Bootlegs and&Sides does hold some excellent material. “My Skin is my Sin” and “U Ain’t Gonna Take My Life” are both b-sides and easily beat out some of his singles. For those who think they know the attitude of Gangsta rappers everywhere, “U Ain’t Gonna Take My Life” presents Ice Cube at his most sensible since “Dead Homiez.” If this selection concentrated a little more on material from Amerikkku ‘sMost Wunted, itwould be a much stronger collection, but as it is, it provides a decent sample of Ice Cube’s most recent work, and should please fans.

This self-titled release from The Cult sets this group on a different path. Following the release of their highly successful compilation album, Plcre Cult, featuring their best known hits, this new album starts them off on a new chapter. The album starts of with a piano and bass intro on the first song, “Gone.” This progresses to the second track, “Coming Down (Drug which features some Tongue),” scratchy sounding guitar playing, which leads into Scott Garrett’s drumming and then Ian Astbury’s distinctive vocals. On the next track

One of the most rock sounding and shortest tracks, “Be Free,” might be the most plain as well but still helps fill out the album, and contrasts songs like “Universal You,” which uses the heaviest full instrumental intro and then uses soft vocals as a variance. If anything the major change for the Cult is the fact that the tunes are a lot more rhythmic than previous albums like LOW. Though their last studio release, Ceremony, by their own admission was not up to their standards, this new album will do more than satisfy many a fan’s need for more Cult.

The God-child of heavy metal was Black Sabbath. Not only the music, but the dark images, and those facinating stories of eating bat heads, worshipping the devil, and the ever popular swilling back collected human bile. Yum. For all those stories, and most importantly the great music Nuziuity in Black is a collection of present day heavies recognizing their roots. What is great about this tribute is the good intentions behind it. Each perfomance doesn’t try to outdo the original, but strives to maintain the intensity and spirit which was intended. This tribute is honest, unlike tributes with new Lenny Kravitz renditions, or Toad the Wet Sprocket; this one will appeal to those who loved Sabbath years ago because these performers listened to Sabbath as teenagers and were inspired to play guitar like Tony Iommi. Loyal fans as well as loyal musicians keep this tribute in the spirit of Sabbath. Twelve classic songs are covered by today’s hottest heavy metal acts. All perfortnantes are true to the originals with exception to Ministry’s Al Jourgensen’s alter personality the 1,000 Homo DJ’s. Jourgensen mixes in dubs and distortion applying the Ministry touch to Sabbath’s “Supernaut.” Ireland’s Therapy? teamed up with the original Sabbath singer, Ozzy Osborne, making a great match-up and tune that rips through a true-to-the-original “Iron Man.” Faith No More’s live vetsion of “War Pigs” isn’t played as well as their version from f$ic, but still a great tune nevertheless. It is great that the Sabbath influence can finally be recognized in an honest tribute, but if you really want to get a grip of their music, do yourself a favour and pick up the originals.

the angel Gabriel him:

by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff For the past five years, the Stone Roses and their various publicity departments have dangled release dates for this new album in front of loyal fans like a malicious child would tease a cat with a piece of string. Because of the first album’s sheer beauty and obvious musical brilliance, we waited. Some gave up after a while, but a small hardcore groups of fans stuck it out to the end, breathlessly waiting for news about their musical heroes, anticipating wondrous new sounds and marvellous new songs. SUCKERS!! Ha, ha, ha! ! You’re all so stupid this album is such a piece of shit! Now, why does this album suck? Well, much of it has to do with the derivative and unimaginative Zeppelinesque rip-offs practiced throughout the album, but more than that, TheSecond Coming remains a sad reminder of what the Stone Roses were. Even their singles after their first album, most notably “Fools Gold” and “Mersey Paradise” were amazingly amazing. Huzzah! cried we all. They’re good even after their first album! What went wrong? The same thing that went wrong with most british bands last year. The biggest (s)hitoflastyearwasOasis,agroup of retro Mancunians who recycled a Lennon/Jagger, McCartney/ Richards sound, which only served to popularize a rather lacklustre work ethic which bands like Primal Scream took to heart. Secondly, it took them five years to come up with this piece of shit. Such extended gestation periods are allowed only if the end work is any good. Loveless was a masterpiece, hence the time it took was worth it. Second Coming is a piece of shit, hence the five years

And with so many pale imitators like the Charlatans, The Farm, and Northside floating about in the wake ofbaggy, I was as anxious as anyone else to see how the patriarchs of the whole thing were going to sound after all this time and all those Geffen millions.

So the date was pushed back and pushed back. People understandably got pissed off. Rumours flew: Mani quit the band, they had gone Led Zep, Ian was listening to hardcore rap.... what could you believe? When December 5th was announced, we of course thought the wolf was crying again, but Lo! It actually happened this time! The most anticipated album of the last decade -- it’s here! Is it a disappointment? Read this carefully: OF COURSE IT IS!!!! With the above hyperbole, how could it be anything else?

Sook-Yin Lee’s album,&zviniti ‘s Tongue cleverly disguises Canadian music as some kind of Oh-so-alternative music-art. Unfortunately, the “let’s be really wacky and creative” approach to music is a tragic disaster that fails to compel one to listen or appreciate the creativity intended. Sook-Yin should take notes from Mecca Normal if obscurity and art-form is her intention, because it doesn’t work here. Sook-Yin is known as fronting Bob’s Your Uncle stationed in Vancouver, but now known more so for her signing on to the Muchmusic VJ family. Be sure they’ll be shameless plugging of her album, but be

that you’ll listen to more than once. Taking a Shakespeare reference as the album title, and having a picture of plastic body parts placed in a dog bowl is only one indication how transparent and meaningless Sook-Yin’s artistic energies take her. “Vocal Improv with Vibrator” affirms this lowbrow coffee-shop art. Another soon-tobe classic could be “Mr Noodle Theme” that will be “bigger than big”amongst piversity students (the alarm buzzer really does it for me.) Particularly fascinating is Sook’s inciteful lyrics such as in “The Hair Song” where she claims in the course that “Hair is just dead cells/ Emerging from our skulls.” The touching anecdote on “Two Polaroids” is a nice sentiment, however to use a story about the death of your sister is a sad way to have to wretch the emotional elements from the listener. The industrious use of instrumeqts, kazoos, toys, and dildos are all used to bring out the best in this embarassing excuse for art. The songs that seem to work carry the “less is better” approach which is most noticeable on “Me and Mary Ann,” and the closing track “Nothing.” Primarily sticking to the acoustic guitar and vocals that don’t try to incorporate all of her limited vocal range are the key elements to Sook’s songs. The “look at me everyone, I’m so wacky and crazy” approach may work for the Barenaked Ladies to some degree, but. it won’t at all for Sook-Yin Lee. Stick to the day job now.

by James Russell Imprint staff This album has been called one of the years best, and I’d have to agree. Dissonant yet pretty, eclectic yet focussed, Guided by Voices have produced a great album.

Ah, now THIS is more like it! Back in October, when I reviewed Oasis’ debut Definite/y Maybe, I commented that it was a good, and at times great, album, but listening to it gave one a feeling of impending genius. A sense of a band lying in wait to pounce upon the world with the kind of drop-dead gorgeous pop that they so arrogantly touted they could produce. Well folks, here it is. This four track E.P. (three new songs plus “Slide Away”) is the sound of Oasis growing into a sort of maturity, and moreover reducing their earlier material to paltry insignifigance. “Whatever” unabashedly rips offmany a songwriting technique from Messrs Lennon and McCarthy circa 1967, with a tamborine backbeat, handclaps, apsychedelic middle-eight, and a bloody string quartet

is one particularly good example. It’s upbeat and just listening to it makes you want to shake your head back and forth like Ringo used to. Tt almost could have been taken off Beatlemania, but not quite. There are a lot of catchy tunes on Bee Thousand. Toe-tappers and ballads. The lyrics are cool too. “The hole I dig is bottomless, but nothing else can set me free.” “She runs through the night as if nobody cares, she screams and she cries and ignores a11 the stares.” Anyway, it’s a good album. If you have nothing against some slightly 103 recordings and don’t hate Paul McCartney-like vocals, I’d say buy it. You’ll like it. laced through the thing. The chorus is relentlessly catchy, with words that are stuck in your head after the second listen. It fades by the end to just the strings, and they simply soar. It’s sparkling, a picture perfect Christmas single. The other tracks are also worthy ofmany listens, notably “Half the World Away,” with Noel on lead vocals (which frankly makes you question’the value of Liam being in the band), this time doing an acoustic number of touching sentiment and subtly. Note that last word; it’s the element in the makeup ofOasis that, until now, has been so sadly lacking. In one fell swoop, in five months since Definitely Maybe, they have mutated into a band that sound more confident and accomplished than most groups sound in years of performing. For the first time they convince us that, hey, maybe there is a reason for all of the hype. This may just be the best single of 1494, and they released in December, those cocky bastards! Hope for a domestic release of this, so that it gets the airplay it deserves. A must have if you were even vaguely interested before.
