‘fter much debate, Students’ Council has voted on a motion concerning the selling #adult sophisticates” (pornography) and “debit cards for phone sex” in the Variety store/ Post Office in the new Student Centre. The answer is “No.” Student Council is the group of 26 students from all faculties and the Colleges that the Federation of Students reports to. It can tell the Executive (President, VPOF and VPUA) what to do, and can veto any decision made by the Executive. There were also motions made concerning the sale of cigarettes and lottery tickets. Both of these items will be sold in the store. However, the controversy lies with the motion on the items related to sex. Eleven of the twelve council members present voted in favour of the motion. The motion was “that the Federation of Students do not $1 adult sophisticates or I( $EGt. q&&s tir phone sex in the Variety and Post.” Councillor Richard Farmer was the only one present who did

harmful,” he says, adding that the decision should be made on an economic basis. “Pcoplc want to buy it. They [the producers] would not make so much money out of it if they didn’t.”

Forster, a member of the Women’s Centre Collective, supports the motion. “I think that’s good. Pornography is not about sex, it is about violence,” she says, calling pornographic maga“terrible, even if they’re not violent.” Farmer thinks the “harmful” argument is invalid in this situation. “We [the Federation of Students] sell alcohol. We sell cigarettes. Both, as far as I’m concerned, are far more harmful than pornograp hy .” He also takes issue with the “degrading” argument. “I

don’t see why you should stop selling something that people want to buy just because some people think it degrades them. Our bookstore sellsMein KUM~J‘ and that degrades Jews. Are we not supposed to sell that?” Christine Dewhurst, VicePresidlent Operations and Finance, is responsible for ovcrseeing the Feds’ businesses. She couldn’t be at the Council meeting due to a family medical emergency, but agrees with Counr:il’s decision. She thinks that if the store stocked pornography, there would be a great potential to “alienate those groups that we are trying to make feel comfortable here.” And as for the dccision being made on a moral basis rather than economic, Dewhurst says “Our mandate is

to serve students, not to make money.” Karin Zvanitajs, Senior Officer of Student Issues, threatened to resign if the motion was not passed. However, she now admits that such a stance may have been a little severe. “I just have a tendency to get a little dramatic,” she says. Nonethecontinued on page 8

he result is more than just two or three dozen pages; it’s avision for the University’s future. At least that is what David Drewe would like to think of the result of last weekend’s student working groups. Over a dozen students met on March 4 and 5 at the request of the Feds to develop a submission to the President’s Committee on Institutional Planning. That committee was struck last spring by the University President to report to the Senate Long Range Planning Committee, and to write a “Draft Plan” for the University. The problem, according to the Feds, is that the President’s Committee had no “accountable” student input; all of its members, students or otherwise, were appointed by James Downey, President of the University, and were not necessarily responsible to students at large. Especially contentious for Stephencodrington, President of the Feds, was an article in the July 27, 1994 Gazette that implied the

Feds had nominated the undergraduate reprcscntativc to the Prcsident’s Commit&. While the student, Rose. Bilicic, will be a mcmber of the Fed executive starting in May, the Feds were not consulted about student representation, and had no say in Bilicic’s appointment. “We were insulted,” Codrington remarked, adding that he is still looking for a published clarifi-

result “is going to be a kick-ass report.” The report will be submitted to Students’ Council this Sunday, March 12, and is a compilation of strengths, weaknesses, “opportunities,” and threats to each of the areas examined by the President’s Committee. These areas covervirtually every aspct of the campus, from “Quality of Life,” “Governance, ““Undergraduate

Say you made it and move on.” Because they had no official representation

on the committee,

the Feds convened a group of students last weekend to develop a series of recommendations to submit to it. The weekend was “excellent,” according to Codrington, and the

One example was a recommendation that any student representative on a governing body automatically get both an e-mail account and voice mail, reducing or eliminating the need

for redlundant paper memos and twice-daily mail service. David Drewe, the Senior Officer of Academic Affairs, was also quite impressed with how the weekend went: “very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very well.“He added that despite the wide range of experience between the students, consensus was reached on most issues. “There were periods where we just got

Jim Kalbleisch, Vice President, Academic-Provost, for the University, welcomed the Fed initiative. He noted that the President’s Committee is open to sublmissions from everyone on campus. “This [the committee] is a group in which people are appointed as individuals, not as representatives of a group,” and th,us welcomes comments from anyone. The final report will be submitted once approved by Students’ Council.

here is little they can do, but they’re trying. That’s the message the Co-op department is giving out, a week after hearing of the plight of four UW co-op students in Hong Kong. The four students are working illegally while they await the outcome of their applications for work visas. If their applications fail, they could be deported, fined, or even imprisoned. Currently, the Co-op department is still trying to figure out what went wrong. In the past, students applied for visas upon arrival, and evidently had no problems.

could obtain the necessary documentation upon arrivaI in Hong Kong. This information came from Margaret Grosch, Co-op’s International Placement Officer, as told to her by Mr. Chan, the General Manager of the Hong Kong electronics firm that is currently employing the students. Co-op never checked this information, and it has since proved to be false. Co-op claims that since previous students sent to Hong Kong had no problems, they are not to blame. The students dispute this also, saying that their problems are not due to laws changing with the impending reunification with China, but with the laws being more stricly

“the arrangements for securing work visas *were clearly explained to the students prior to leaving for Hong Kong.” However, the students’ employer told them to wait until after the Chinese New Year to apply, which the students did. When they did apply for their visas, they were informed ofthe penaIities they faced for working the previous two months. The students sent a letter to David Drewe, Senior Officer of Academic Affairs for the Federation of Students, and to Keith Kenning, the Co-op Program Administrator outlining their predicament early last week. Both Drewe and Kenning have subsequently been in contact with the students. The Co-op department has also been in contact with the students’ employer, Universal Electronics. Bruce Lumsden, Director of Co-op, in a letter to Imprint stated that “the arrangements for securing work visas were clearly explained to the students prior to leaving for Hong Kong.” However, the four students dispute this. They say that all that they were told by Co-op was that they

enforced. TGs implies that previuos students had no difficulties, not because Co-op provided them with correct infcbrmation, but because beuraucrats in Hong Kong were more lax. “There has been no official change in Hlong Kong immigration policy. The difficulties that we arc experiencing are a result of stricter enforcement ofexistingrules,“says a letter from the four to Co-op. They continue to say “regardless of the abscence ofpast students’ difficulties, the issue at hand is that we were in violation of Hong Kong law upon our first day of employment. The purpose of our correspondance is to ensure that the next group of students obtain, with full assistance and cooperation of the university, a contract and the necessary documentation to work legally in their placements Prior departure. In the future, this may involve the Co-op Department researching the various laws and the procedures that apply to students when working abroad.”

ten years in various announcements. So the question is, will they ever get to that 1O-to- I ratio?” Another feature ofthe proposed plan involves the opportunity for students to access world-widecomputer networks. Existing classrooms as well as newly built schools will bc provided with networking facilities “as soon as possible”, according to the Backgroundcr. The support for teachers will allow school boards to spend money on repairs and educational software. One interesting aspect of the Backgrounder details the devclopmcnt of partnerships between schools and local businesses, an act that will likely change the face of education permanently. Asked if the move would constitute the “selling-out” of the schools and industrialize the concept of education, Wagner seemed unconcerned. “I don’t think that’s a selling out, I think it’s a very positive step to say we’re all in this together. In recent years businesses have said to school boards and to universities that education has to start providing graduates who are knowledgeable in today’s society to and able to use information technology,” he said. About the introduction of this element of the plan, Wagner leaves room for doubt, noting, “It’s a fairly open-ended statement from the Ministry of Education.” The Backgrounder and the accompanying news release mention that the first partnership is already in place, between several boards and IBM Canada. The news release is based on the findings ofthe Royal Commission on Learning. Wagner approvesofthcCommission’s work to date and is especially impressed with the group’s acknowledgement of education for students who will be graduating “in the next century.” Undeniably, Canadian cducation is changing as it becomes more data-oriented and focussed on computer knowledge. The children, perhaps even siblings of currentlystudying university students will be affected in the years to come if the proposed plan is implemented. The alterations in education have been slow to arrive in comparison to the massive new wave of technology in the home. As Rick Wagner says, “We live in a world filled with information technology. And a lot of students have more at home in that regard than we do in the classroom.”

chools across Ontario are about to become more tech nology-friendly, according a rcccnt Backgroundcr from the Ministry of Education and Training.

“That’s a noble objective. The government has used that IO-toI ratio fur at least the last ten years iz2 various announcements. So the question is, wiGl they ever get to that IO-to1 ratio?” Rick Wagner, computer consultant for the Waterloo Region Separate School Board; hesitates to embrace the new policies just yet. “Until we see exactly what the government’s going to do with support for their announcement, I tend be a little bit cautious as to what it will mean for schools,” he says. But Wagner believes that if the plans arc followed through with, the result will be positive. “If they do come through with everything that’s in the backgrounder and the press release that it’s based on, things should improve the amount of technology available for our students’ use .” About the improved studentsto-machines ratio, Wagner remains skeptical, saying, “That’s a noble objective.

he funeral was held Tuesday (March 7) for Woldemar (Pe ter) Petri, acknowledged as the oldest professor teaching at a Canadian university. He died Friday at Cambridge Memorial Hospital. He was 88. An adjunct professor in civil engineering at the University of Waterloo, Petri was a civil engineer, renowned structural engineer and inventor. Born in Moscow in July 1906, Petri came to Canada in 1953 and after retiring from his consulting firm at age 7 1, turned to teaching at UW. In recent years, he taught one class a week to master’s and PhD students. Among his famous designs were overhead sign supports for multi-lane highways, the first aluminum welded bridge (over the Grand River near Breslau), aluminum crane booms, truck bod-

ies and trailers, ship loaders and unloaders, and transportable bridges for the U.S. Marine Corps. Before moving to Canada, he worked in

aircraft and jets. He was the holder of many patents and in recognition of his accomplishments was listed in Who’s Whlo in Technology. He received an hionorary doctor of engineering degree from UW in 1989. “Whlen I’m teaching young people, I forget how old I am,” he said in a 1993 interview for a newspaper articlepublished intemationally. He voluntarily underwent IQ tests every two years to reassure himself and university officials that he still had what it took to teach. His goal was to keep teaching until age 90 but he broke his hip in a fall this winter and was admitted to the hospital. Petri, who lived in Cambridge, was

IMPRINT,

Campus left over to worry about saving the planet. It seems we are doomed to a deteriorating economy, community, and environment. When we complain about these problems we are told this is the price WC must pay to create jobs and a healthy economy. In the midst of all the doom and gloom, many people are beginning to take back control of their communities. They see that local environmental and economic problems can be traced to economic decisions made outside the community. They realize thata healthy economy and environment are not mutually exclusive andmust become the goal ofeconomic development. And they know no one is better suited to understand the environmental and economic needs of their community than themselves. Throughout Ontario, various community members have begun initiatives that create jobs and help repair damaged ecosystems. These initiatives follow the approach of sustainable community economic development (SCED). SCED is about developing our communities from within by becoming self-sufficient through selfreliance. Economic decisions are made by community members and are based on meetingpeople’s needs and promoting environmental sustainability. Future columns will explain how to do SCED and give examples from the people who are doing

Our communities are in rough economic shape. Small businesses are going under, while large multi-national companies move capital and jobs to areas where they can maximize profit and undercut local producerswithcheaperconsumerproduct pricing. As businesses shut down and move to Mexico and other lowwage high-repression countries, more of our friends and family are without work. Those with jobs often face wage cutbacks. Thatmeans many of us are struggling to just meet our basic needs. Greater numbers of people in our communities are becomingimpoverishcd. As well, our governments seem to ignore the wishes of the people who elect them. We ask for jobs and healthy communities and we get economic policies that result in higher unemployment, lower wages, and the slow destruction of social services. We end up losing community control for the sake of global competition. As our communities and our economy decline, our environment is steadily deteriorating. Global climate change, the depletion of the ozone layer, and species extinction are just some of themany problems facing all citizens of the world. Here in Ontario, we pollute the lakes that supply our drinking water with industrial waste, We put toxic chemicals on the food we eat. We dump garbage and other waste on our precious agricultural land. And in our cities we breathe air full of smog. Put simply, the ecosystems we rely on are increasingly compromiscd. Back in the 1980s when the economy appeared healthy, people had lots of energy to try to stop the destruction of our planet. But times have changed. The tough economic realities of the 1990s mean we must spenda lot more time making ends meet. For most people that meanslittle time is

If the students own it, why not let them decide?” 1 As far as the decision being moral or economical, Jongerius believes that there must be a separation of business and morals, saying that he personally agreed with the decision,but that “as a manager, I probably would have put everything in.” Jongerius says he could have had any magazine “shrink wrapped” in plastic, to prevent people leafing through them in the store. He also says that thie debit cards for phone sex lines were potentially very profitable. The ca.rds are sold for $100, and as time is used up by the owner talking to a sex line, the money is deducted. The allure is that they offer complete anonymity. Evidently, the:y have been test-marketed in the United States with tremendous results. For their inclusion in the store, there would be no initial investment costs, and the Feds would receive 20% of all sales. “It’s tough operating a politically correct variety store,” Jongerius says. Farmer is also dissatisfied with the decision to allow lottery tickets and cigarettes, saying that the Feds are plannin,g on selling them, but them planning to have education campaigns. “I thought that was just ludicrous,” says Farmer. “You’re allowed to smoke and we’re going to take the profit from that and tell you not to smoke.” He also says “I think there is a far greater chance of someone going to the Bomber and having six or eight beers and date rape being involved after, rather than a couple going to convenience store, buying a Playboy and the guy going home and raping his girlfriend because he just saw a Playboy.” He counters any argument of exploitation, saying “Playmate of the month makes $20,000 U.S., Playmate of the year, I think, gets $100,000 and Penthouse pays more than that, so I know the women involved aren’t exploited.” Steve Codrington, President of the Federaltion of Students, says “we are considering image,” when asked about the decision. He is glad students are talking about this and stresses th.at he doesn’t want to trivialize the issue, but from a business point of view, it is just one product amongst many. “We don’t sell Pepsi either, [and] that’s not a big deal .”

T

he Working Group on Continuing Education (WCE) has begun its task of analyzing the University’s activities in distance education, professional development and upgrading courses, non-credit activity, and special part-time programs. Our mandate involves consulting extensively with faculty, staff, students, and others involved in, or affected by, continuing education in creating our vision for these programs for the next decade. As a precursor to our required SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats), we held a visioning session for our working group which uncovered our thoughts and ideas on the issues, interest groups, and visions for continuing education for the next 5-Z 0 years. Our session leader asked us to respond to the following questions: I. What issues are most important with respect to continuing/distance education over the next 10 years? 2. What interest groups are affected by these issues? How will they behave? How will their interests be satisfied’! 3. What are the key characteristics of continuing/distance education 10 years from now? Following are our responses to these questions. 1. Issues: - Accessibility to the university’s resources for distance and continuing education students - Adaptability to new needs of students (i.e., international opportunities, professional development, job re-training, etc.) - Financial considerations regarding adequate compensation to faculty members, academic units, and university as a whole in addition to government attitudes = Effective use of educational technologies, including experimentation - Organization of programs, including degree of centralization - Quality of programs, including an effective feedback system that ensures program maintenance - Availability of resources such as computer labs in continuing education - Status and image attached to faculty involvement in continuing/distance education courses - Cooperation with and competition from other delivery agencies We highlighted accessibility, financial considerations, educational technologies, and status issues as the primary ones conceming UW’s Continuing Education programs during the next decade. 2. Interest Groups: - Students: increasingly discriminating, particulary professionals: also includes those legislated to upgrade skills (i.e., optometrists), other groups (i.e., cultural group managers, engineers), and alumni - Faculty: concerned with compensation (status and financial) - Support Staff: working conditions as “front line troops” an issue - University Community: reputation of institution a prime concern

ere’s a riddle: bankers re fer to me as an ATM, auto makers use me to control anti-lock braking systems, and at the University of Waterloo, I have recently entered the hallowed halls of the co-op department. The pcopie there call mc ACCESS. What am I? ‘The answer is, the new Co-op on-line ACCESS system. The idea for an on-line access system originated back in 1988. At that time, the co-op department considered the on-line access system to be part of a much larger project. At the end of 1989, a design document for the larger project was produced. This document outlined the computing needs of the co-op department for the upcoming years. It included a full rcplaccmcnt of the department’s hardware and software systems. On the hardware side, the TBM mainframe running VMICMS would be abandoned in f&our of a UNIX platform. On the software side, a new information system would be crc-

ated. This system would be a combination of both new and existing software. It would provide details on such things as students’ academic and work term histories, the jobs to which they’ve applied, record employer information such as contact names, current and previous job requirements, job posting and interview dates. This information system would serve as the data engine for other software systems, such as the intcrvicw scheduling systern, the offer system, an on-line access system for students, and other systcms for coordinators and other Co-op employees. In 1989 and 1990 the information system and most of the other systems were developcd. At the beginning of 199 1, this initial version was rclcascd intcmally and tested within the co-op department. At this point, a thorough evaluation of the system took place. Bugs were found and enhancements suggested. Unfortunately, version one of the svstcm had some unexpected pro bLms, including data &m-up-

tion and a number of logical errors. As a result of these shortcomings, a second version was produced. As the second version approachcd completion late in 1992, the co-op department considered changing the placement process. Some members of the co-op de-

At the end of 1993, co-op made a final decision not to proceed with continuous placement. As a result, some of the software developments designed for continous placement were no longer needed. Others were incorporated into the current noncontinuous system. The end rcsuit of continuous placement was a one year delay in the systems development process. By the beginning of 1994, the information system was complete. Other

With co-op

began working ontheon-

line access system for students. System requirements were drawn up by the co-op department and given to an internal data processing group in the MC building. Dave Thomas of the co-op department served as co-op’s link to this data processing group. He was responsible for overseeing personnel and evaluating the project at various stages of its development. In total, the project involved the efforts of about a dozen employees including programmers, network technicians and the input of a few co-op students. It was originally expected that the student on-line system would take four to five months to complete. Unfortunately, it ended up taking a full ten months to get the job done. The main reasons for the delay included security considerations, the creation ofapproximately 6000 student accounts, and the need

to learn a new programming language. The on-line system allows students to view job postings, check interview schedules and job offers and to perf;Drm custom queries. As with all large software packages, there are still a few bugs in the system. However it is anticipated that these errors will be eliminated in theupcomingmonths. Additional features amd program enhancements will also be added in the future. Eventually, co-opwould like to reach the point where students can apply to jobs directly on-line without having to fill drop boxes withprinted copies oftheirresumes. If you’ve already given the system a whirl, then Dave Thomas wants to hear from you! The current system is only a work in progress. It will continue to expand and improve over the upcoming years. If you have any ideas for improving the system, let Dave Thomas or Students Advising Coop know what you think. Let us know what you like and what you don’t like, what features should be added and what features should be changed. For more information on how to use the on-line system, there is a pamphlet available in the Career Kesource Centre, as well as a posting on UWInfo and on the co-op department’s home page in Mosaic.

Among the week-long activities will be a juricd art show that will give artists the opportunity not only to display and sell their work, but also to have their art considered for permanent display in the Campus Ccntre. Aside from the pastel action gum&s that accent the old furniture in the Great Wall, there has been a dearth of artwork exhibited *

in the Campus Centre. Despite the fact that students are paying for the construction and maintenance of the new Campus Centre, they have participated relatively little in its actual architectural design and construction. More recently, however, students have had a hand in furniture selection and layout and have generated ideas for specific room USC. The upcoming juried art show will allow for students’ direct input (in terms of art submissions and jury decisions) into the aesthetics of the interior of their Campus Centre. Students, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to submit original artwork-paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, batiksfor viewing from March 27 to March 3 1 in the new multipurpose room. (That’s the room with the wooden swivel doors in the north side of the Great Hall.) At the beginning of the exhibition, a jury will select pieces to be permanently displayed in the Campus Centre. Artists of these works will receive an honorarium. In addition, the Campus Centre will pay for the selected pieces to be framed and mounted. During the week, students and visitors to the Campus Centre will be able to view the exhibition and purchase any pieces artists have chosen to sell. If you are interested in submitting your artwork to the exhibition, or if you have any suggestions, please contact Paula Thiessen at 579-4635,MaurecnRaat884-0807orTifhny Placins at 888-4567, ext. 6283. The deadline for submissions is March 22. Artwork need not be framed for submission. The jury will not be considering any sculptures. Depending on the show’s total number of submissions, the number of submissions per artist may have to be limited.

The task force was formed to discuss accountability issues, and previously the force outlined recommendations to be implemented by universities. Federal Minister of Education and Training David Cooke sent the October memo to strongly encourage the return of written reports that would describe how the task force’s recommendations were being dealt with. By February, the University of Waterloo had completed and returned the requested report. A divided chart listed the proposals,

Most activities begin around 9 a.m. and continue until about 4 p.m., involving faculty, staff and students from nearly every department and student service area across the campus. It’s also a day for high school students to bring their parents along for information programs, covering such topics as co-operative education, health and safety, coutlselling, residence life, inter-university sportsandcampus recreation programs, financial aid and student life.

Firing Line &

F

or the past four years, Imprint has published a feature by the women’s centre that usually receives a fair amount of criticism from the university community at large. Each feature usually contains an article on various activities sponsored by the women’s centre, a rant about the role of the media or white males and then there’s usually some other more provocative piece designed strictly for shock effect. The above is a general outline that may not be exactly true every year. This year, however, is no exception and that’s a pity. The problem with all of the previous features is that there is very little if any real communication involved. The articles involve a level of preaching to the converted that would make the most militant Christians cringe. Now don’t get me wrong, I undcrstand the whole idea that this is women’s week, and they should have their own activities to empower themselves and all that. However, this feature is not written just for the fifty-odd women who spend time at the women’s centre. It is published in a newspaper that is distributed all over the university campus, and in the Kitchener-Waterloo area: Thus, some attempt must be made in order to cffcctively communicate the issues and ideas that the women’s centre believes in. Poetry and unimaginative rants about the power of the media do far more harm than good for the women’s centre since they simply reinforce the stereotype ofthe women’s centre as a place where only radical feminists can feel comfortable. It is not easy to spend one’s time perpetually trying to communicate one’s ideas to what appears to be an unthinking and unfeeling world. Trying to explain what one believes in to other people, especially when that view is far outside the accepted mainstream, is akin to banging one’s head against a brick wall. Hey, no one said being a feminist was easy. This difficult job is not made any easier when you present vague epigrams as part of your “philosophy.” For example, in the section cntitlcd “Our Philosophy” in this week’s feature, WC have some ofthe “immediate objectives” of the women’s ccntre. One of these objectives is “To foster a supportive environment condusive (sic) to womyn empowering themselves and other womyn.” What does that mean? As an objective, this is hopelessly vague and open to a ridiculous amount of interpretation. Similarly, the opening line of the women’s centre “philosophy” is that “We believe that institutionalized discrimination against womyn exists in our society.” Well that’s nice, but I could equally argue thai no such “institutionalized discrimination” exists and in fact recent employment equity legislation makes it much, much easier to get a job if you’re a woman or a minority. Last month’s philosophy colloquium by Grant Brown on the poverty of employment equity plicies was a perfect forum for organizations like the women’s ccntre to combat what they see as institutionalized discrimination. They could have sponsored a speaker to debate Brown, but unfortunately no such action was taken. I will, no doubt, be dismissed as another one of those “men” who simply can never understand the struggle of women in our society, etc. etc. So be it. However, the women’s centre should realize that there are many, many men and women who do not either understand or care about what they are doing. If they want to offer a relevant contribution to intelligent discussion on campus and if they wish to foster positive social change then they should start taking their audience into consideration.

Letters should be 500 words or less, typed and double-spaced or in electronic form, and have the author’s name, signature, address and phone number for veyification. Letter received via electronic mail must be verified with a signature. All material is subject to editing for brevity and clarity. The editor reserves the right to refuse to publish letters or articles which are judged to be libellous or discriminatory on the basis of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. Opinions expressed are those of the individuals and not of Imprint.

Codrington is so cool To the Editor, I am writing in response to Sean Denomey’s letter (March 3, 1995. Sean writes, “I’d like to ask Mr. Codrington why he wasn’t working for the students who were (are) blatantly getting ripped off. Whose side are you on, Stephen?” I for one, do not feel and have never felt ripped off by the Feds. There are many services provided that more than compensate for the fee paid. While I may not take advantage of all of them, for example the food bank, I am glad that it is there should I ever need it. Should Sean ever need it, I have no problem having contributed to the fund that provides the service. To imply that the Feds don’t work for students is ridiculous. I point to two prime examples when the Feds saved you a lot more money than 25 bucks. Last year Catherine Coleman significantly reduced the Ancillary Fees which were to be imposed upon us. You don’t see a line in your incidental fees for $200... Thank Catherine. This year Stephen Codrington contributed significantly to the force that stopped Axworthy’s plan to eliminate Federal Transfer Payments to the provinces. Your tuition hasn’t doubled.. . Thank Stephen. I recognize that the decision made in part by Catherine Coleman to charge the fee, and Stephen Codrington’s decision not to fight that earlier choice were difficult. I’m sure the bank does not recognize the imperative of a referendum, they simply want their money. I feel that both Catherine and Stephen acted in the best long-term interest of the students. $25 times every student represents a lot of money that could have eased the debt incurred in the building of the Student Centre, Which in turn means more money for services like the food bank. Be patient Sean, you’ll get the $25. When I get mine I’m giving it back. I’m going to donate it to the Food Bank. 1 hope other students will do this too. Donate your $25 to your favourite Fed service whether it be the Safety Van, PALS phone line, GLLOW or any one of the manyFed services. 3rd

Twist n’ shout To the Editur, As you may or may not know, on Friday, February 17 the CKGL travelling road show was at the Twist in Waterloo. CKGL had been advertising this event for about two weeks beforehand, stating that the tickets would cost eight dollars in advance and ten at the door. I and a few of my friends were planning on going, so I suggested I would go over to the Twist and pick up the tickets in advance (two bucks is two bucks).

Imagine my surprise when I arrived at the Twist at I O:30 Friday morning and was informed that five tickets would cost me $50. No, I’m not good at math, but the last time I checked 5 times 8 equalled $40, not $50. I would like, now, to inform everyone of the apparent new delinition of “at the door.” According to the Twist all tickets sold on the day of the show are “at the door.” My understanding of the reason for advance tickets is to avoid confusion at the time of the event when there are large crowds to contend with. Apart from a couple of custodians she and I were the only two people in the building; I don’t know how much confusion I was causing her to merit the extra charge. My greatest annoyance at this point was the fact that, had I but known, T could have just as easily bought the tickets Thursday moming. However, a couple more factors in the story top off my annoyance. The Twist closes at 5 o’clock and re-opens at 8. Does this not provide a definite distinction between what is “in advance” and what is “at the door”? Also, the tickets which I had paid $10 for had written right on them “8 dollars.” After returning home and discussing this with some of my friends I made a few phone calls. First, I would like to thank Tracy at the Chamber of Commerce for her advice. Second, I’d like to thank Mike Collins and Vie at CKGL. I told my story to Mike, who was as surprised as I was about the new definition of “at the door.” He said he would make a couple of phone calls and I should either meet him or Vie at the Twist that evening. Vie was waiting for me at the Twist and reimbursed me the $10. The money came from CKGL, not the Twist. In closing I would like to say, “way to go CKGL” for coming through. I’ve always been an avid listener and will continue to be so. As for the Twist, I don’t intend to return anytime soon. - Dave Schuler 4N Kin

Co-op is your friend Tothe Editor, Further to the article on co-op students in Hong Kong (Mar. 3), the facts are that the arrangements for securing work visas were clearly explained to the students prior to leaving for Hong Kbng. Our information on these arrangements is updated every term. The first we were aware of any problem was a week ago. Since then we have communicated directly with the students and the employer to determine the cause of the problem. We are taking steps to insure the well being of the students and that their work term experience is not jeopardized. We did not “drop the ball” nor are we negligent. References of this nature do a great disservice

to our staff,

and the students who are engaged in international co-op education. - Bruce Dire&r,

Women just equal TO the Editor, On the closing day of Jntemational Women’s Week, I’d just like to provide a counterpoint to the pro-feminist events and speeches held over the past few days. It is my firm opinion that modern feminism has gone off-track. Whereas the original intent was to improve the state of women’s affairs, and promote equality, now the primary goal is shifting towards promoting superiority. This is evidenced in the blatant anti-male attitude of the extreme elements of the women’s movement. Ever since elementary school, I have heard girls say “we can do anything you can do, only better!” Only better. 11. They have to stick that in; they can’t be satisfied with equality, they’ve gotta go for the jugular! More recently, we have extremists spouting such statements as “all men are potential rapists.” This definition has no relevance whatsoever, but serves as a manipulative aid to the feminist cause, spreading fear and distrust of males across the land, And when you think about it, since women can (and have) raped as well, all women are also potential rapists. So now we’ve said everybody is capable of doing a certain thing. And so what: that’s human nature, There will always be some violence

in the world,

and pointing

the finger at males is not going to help matters. As well, just look at the current craze to provide a “safe” environment for women. We have safety

patrols to walk them to and from home, draconian rape laws to protect them from anything but the driest form of sexual conduct, as soon as a supervisor touches a woman on the shoulder, she can accuse him of sexual harassment. I think this is going a little overboard. I am all for promoting safety, but should we do it at the cost of isolating ourselves from life? I mean, we could live in a bubble the rest of our lives and be free from risk, but what kind of a life would that be?? Life is full of happiness and disappointment, good things and bad things. Sheltering society from this by making everything “politically correct” does not change the underlying problems, it only has the effect of driving the problems into the underground. So, as we close up the celebrations of International Women’s Week, undoubtedly filled with admonishments to be more politically correct, and give more power to Women, I just think it is always worthy to realize there is another side to the story. -

Please send cash To the Editor, I was slightly surprised to receive a letter in my mail box addressed “to the parents of Tammy Akey” from the University of Waterloo last week. As my parents do not live with me, I opened the envelope - after all it did have my name and was annoyed to find an onitappeal for money (“a contribution

of $150 or more”). As a graduating student, the letter blabbered on about how proud my parents must be before it gets to the point. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to celebrate by generously offering the University financial support? What a load of crap! Hello there, haven’t I been paying tuition, among endless other fees every semester? What the hell was that money for? So you could continually hound me for more money after I’ve graduated too? I assume it was partially spent on writing and mailing this letter, and thousands more like it. Although the letter was addressed officially to my parents, “Parents in Partnership” wasted its time, money, and paper (and oh great, I apparently have a phone call coming too!) sending this to me. Even if it had reached my parents, I am many,manythousands of dollars in debt because my parents have been completely unable to contribute to my education. How would they be able to contribute to the future of the University? I suggest that this income-generating strategy be revised. The administration at the UW has signed my OSAP documents for the past few years, so someone there must know my family would be highly unlikely to send a couple of hundred dollars to the University ‘&as a special way to celebrate the accomplishments of [their] child.” This is a blatant waste of UW’s financial resources. The money spent on creating, generating, and mailing these letters, plus the telemarketing followup, could be much better spent on numerous things, including putting students to work in more promising and challenging ways. Then perhaps in turn, we will be more inclined to remember our dear Alma Mater in the future when we have the resources and a desire for that warm fuzzy feeling that helping others gives.

That CFS

darn rally

To the Editor, On January 25 1995, the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) held a cross-Canada rally to voice students’ discontent with Lloyd Axworthy’s cuts to social programmes, in this case, specifically cuts that would affect students by raising our tuition by cutting transfer payments to provincial govemments. If you want more specific technical details, I’m sure back issues of Imprint have them. This supposed nation-wide ciass walkout was not supported by every campus. I would like to say that Waterloo’s lack of participation in the rally (a decision made by our Feds) was a good idea. I am on a work term in Ottawa, and I was lucky(?) enough to duck out at lunch to visit Parliament Hill for the supposed student rally. The reason I say “supposed” is that the issue most pressing to students (rising tuition) seemed to take a back

“At%&?!” Yes, many of you, my fellow arts students, may have had this derisive call levelled at you by some moron from one of the Engineering, Science, or Math faculties. Fortunately for us, ES and Ret students are farther down in the pecking order... Arts students don’t get any respect. But how can we expect to? When WC take a math course, all the really nasty stuff is removed so our poor, numerically challengedminds won’t get confused. Economics courses are often filtered to get rid of all that, ahem, irrelevant mathcrnatics. There’s this stereotypical perception that while Engineers think Plato was something they played with as a child, WC break out in a cold sweat at the thought of the slope of a line. Obviously, neither is true (for the most part). However, the very idea that literacy and numcracy are not, to use a math torn-t, mutually exclusive, seems completely foreign to those in charge ofboth the Arts and Math faculties. We artsies should be thrown a few numbers once in a while. Inflated marks do not help our quest for rcspeciability either. My classmates almost look ill when they hear that eh average on a test was a brutal 70%. I’vt: written more than a few midterms where the average was 75%, 80% or even higher. If the average is that high, how hard can it possibly be? While this is great for egos, making tests more challenging would bc far more helpful. First, the general level of learning would be elevated. Second, more material would be covered. Third, the students would bc separated more

appropriately by ability. Consequently, better students will no longer be penalizedin Coop, where currently their slightly higher averages mean little to employers when so many students already have A- or better averages. And if desired (though hopefully not), these precious averages could be saved by bell curves to maintain the egos and the outside world’s perception of the student body. The crux of the problem is that we often get a free ride in the Arts faculty. If you don’t do the reading, it’s covered in class. And what ofall this reading we claim to be bogged down with? Why don’t they throw us something challenging, instead of forcing us to Read & Regurgitate hundreds of pages? Assuming we can read, why don’t the professors take the material and extend its boundaries, instead of telling us what we just read? Why don’t they (gasp!) make us think instead? I’m sorry, but if a student doesn’t do the reading, then it’s the student’s fault if hc or she is completely lost in following the lecture. Period. Thr: reading should be a background used to understand more complex material to be taught in the lecture, and not vioe versa. Yes, complex material should be reviewed by the professor. However, rarely is every topic in a course complex enough to warrant such a review. Now you say, if the classes are a waste of time, why do you bother going‘? Participation marks. No, there’s no typo. We actually have participation marks. This is a fabulous way of making people show up. Apart from lan-

guage classes where they are justified, participation marks brilliantly cover up the professor’s incompetence, the course’s lack of material, or both. I had a course last term where they would sometimes quiz you on occasion at the end of a lecture to see if you were present. I had another course where you were expelled from the course if you missed more than two classes. Perhaps if the lectures were valuable, these draconian measures would not need to be taken. We don’t have three or more hours a week to massage the ego of the professor. If we miss lectures and subsequently fail or do poorly, that’s our fault, not the professor’s. In fact it would be nice if lecture attendance really was a requisite for higher achievement. Unfortunately, it is not. At this point in our education careers, I think we can be trusted to decide for ourselves whether or not lectures are useful. All that I’m asking is that the faculty treat us with a littie more respect and make us learn -- not just regurgitate. I may be wrong, but the ability to think and analyze seems more important than the ability to memorize endless definitions. My God, even an Enginccr could do that!

continued from page 13 seat to other issues. Now I understand that Carleton University (the main student body at the rally) has a strong left-wing slant, but I do not see why a rally organized by students to present student views and student complaints should be used as a platform by the Communist and Sociallist parties of Canada to spread their views and beliefs. I do not see why a student rally against tuition hikes needs placards denouncing the “rich elite” of this country, and I do not see why a student rally needs a guest speaker who says we must defend the common worker from the government and the monopolies Those are very lovely sentiments, but this was neither the time nor the place. Why should my discontent with rising tuition be tied to political propaganda? Let’s call a spade a spade, shall we? Another aspect of this rally that continues to boggle me is the organizers’ attacks on big business, especially Canadian banks. Now, maybe I’m a li<ttle slow, but how the hell does the fact that the Royal Bank made or lost money last year (it made money) affect my tuition? Directly, it doesn’t. So why did the student rally march to the Royal Bank head office to protest the fact that it made money? Now, I can s’ee why Socialists and unhappy Public Servants would have a problem with banks making record profits, but students? I could care less what the bank does, so long as it keeps cashing my chequcs. Some of you may think that my beliefs jaded my views of this, event. That may be so, but I doubt it. I think anyone would have been less than impressed by the way this rally was run. If the organizers had at least stuck to the topic of tuition increases, and concentrated on that issue without babbling on about the proletariat and the bourgeoisie, I think a lot more could have been accomplished.

Canada’s Wi(dlife Managemenf Police: Hev, there3 no more cod, ki[t the seals!

by Leslie Warren special to Imprint “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” -Mahatma Ghandi n February third the Canadian govern rnent admitted that the northern cod have been fished to commercial cxtinction. According to Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society “Atlantic Canada is now locked into a permanent pov-

promised Paul Watson, “ I was there the last time this happened. Every Tom, Dick and Harry from the villages was downthere trying to club seals and not doing it right and ending up skinning them alive.” The Government of Canada failed Canadians by not protecting fish populations from Canadian and foreign overfishing activities. Now unemployed fishermen are being given a scapegoat (the seals) and the means to vent their frustrations (the slaughter) to distract them from venting on the real culprit - the Canadian Government and its mismanagement of the Fisheries.

1949 000 harp seal pups and 8,000 baby

announced the opcning of a “recreational” seal hunt. kginning March 15, 194,000 harp seal pups, plus 8,000 baby grcy and hood seals will be slaughtcrcd. According to an article entitled “Canada Rcvivcs Seal Massacre” in the March I995 issue of Anil& i+q3i~~ put out by a nonprofit organization in Shushan, NY: “Scalers won’t have to leave shore to club, shoot and hack baby seals and their mothers this year. For the first time since 1982, there is no ice in the Gulf of St.Lawrcncc, forcing harp seals and hooded seals ashore to whelp.” Whelping usually takes place on the ice floes. Every year around late February the mother seals come to shore to give birth to their babies (whelp), they then stay with them for approximately 18 days to nurture and feed them. After 18 days the mothers go off to feed on their own, leaving their babies on shore until they return. It is at this time that the hunt will begin, while the baby seals are left alone. They will be easy to slaughter, because their mothers will bc gone and the babies will still be too young to defend themselves. The mothers will return to find their babies being killed, and if they interfere, which they will, they too will be killed. This year, Canadian Fisheries Minister Brian Tobin is also encouraging the general public to kill seals. The Minister has decided that non-experienced hunters will be allowed to kill seal pups. “It’s going to be bloody,”

and are not in competition for any commercial fish species. With no scientific backing they have been encouraging the hunt because thcrc is “an imbalance perceived between the amount of fish eaten by seals and the amount that may be taken by fishermen.” Sure there is an imbalance: the fishermen take all the cod. According to the Animal People article: “The expanded seal hunt follows the recommendation of a study group on the status ofthe codfishcry, appointed by

Chinese medicine market. The seal penises will be dried and powdered and packaged as an oral remedy for male impotence for markets in Asia. Anne Doncaster from the Inter-, national Wildlife Coalition says that these are ‘*the same markets responsible for the illegal traffic of critically endangered tigers and rhinos.” Even more disturbing, is that, according toAnimal People, these aphrodisiacs are “sold at the notorious child-brothels of so called “sex-port” centrcs catering to the beliefs, strong in Asia, that sex with very young partners can restore youth; that sex with children avoids AIDS; and that men of enhanced virility sire sons.” Statistics listed in the Animul Pcopk article from The United Nations Children’s Fund reported on December 15 were that “as many as half a million children are exploited in sex-ports .*. Thailand and the Philippines have an estimated 100,000 child-prostitutes apiece. At least eight other Southeast Asian nations are also deeply involved.” To pacify the general public, who may

This non-lethal, cruelty-free form of sealing could provide hundreds ofJobs without harming seal pups. This approach is certainly more productive than a govemment-subsidized bounty hunt. The Sea Shepherd does not understand why the government will not back an idea that saves seals, creates jobs and is revenue and publicity positive for Canada.

Taking our bodies BACK by Anna Forster special to Imprint

T

his is International Womyn’s Week, centred around Inter national Womyn’s Day, March 8. It is an opportunity for womyn every where to celebrate the joy of being female. Unfortunately, womyn in the western world have been continually prevented from loving themselves for what they are and who they are. I’m talking about the media and how its images of womyn are degrading, insulting and repressive. Womyn in the media are always portrayed as happy, successful, beautiful, and sexually desirable BECAUSE they are thin. Because media images are inescapable to people living within society, womyn buy this myth. It is not the weakness bf womyn that creates this unnatural desire to be thin, but the utter pervasiveness and subtlety of advertising. For a womin to break free from the myth, she must

constantly recognize media images for what they are, reject them, and reaffirtn herself. In a society where womyn are

devalued in every area of life, this can be excruciatingly difficult. Not buying into media images creates a situation where womyn are ostracited in all aspects of their everyday life. The things we (i.e., rich

white males) value are the very things that imprison womyn: thinness, beauty and success. The natural state of womyn is not thin. At puberty, boys lose fat and girls gain fat, so that womyn can eventually bear and nurture children. Thus womyn’s constant struggle to lose weight is eventually futile because their bodies aren’t normally bone racks. They cannot, by the very essence of their femaleness, attain the rewards society defines as valuable. The time has come to REJECT these images and REJECT these societal “rewards” and REJECT repression. As womyn, we have the power to unite and fight back. The task of creating a healthy, diverse image of womyn is difficult BUT WE CAN DO IT. It’s time to accept our bodies because they ARE beautiful as they are. We can take our power back and fight for change actively. BE WOMYN. We are wholly capable of creating strength in our unity, diversity and togetherness.

Women & Social Spending Cuts by Kara special

Wchardson to Imprint

into believing that cuts 10 social programs x-e necessary and deGrable. After years of‘Crmservative gov~mrnent policy in Canada, this rhetoric is nothing new. However, the Liberal government was elected due to Canadian disgust with Tory policy and due to Liberal claims that job creation, rather than the deficit and social spending cuts, would be their priority. Evidently, they have changed their minds. Lloyd Axworthy’s cuts to social spending deal with Canada’s economic problems in a way that is unfair to many Canadians. However, these cuts will have particularly adverse effects on Canadian women. A gendered analysis of the social spending cuts is important for a number of reasons. Historically and presently, systemic barriers have diminished women’s access to capital, wages, education and training. The majority of low-income workers and people living in poverty in Canada are women. Many of these women are single parents, which makes the poverty of many of Canada’s children directly related to the poverty of women. 58% of single mothers live in poverty. For single mothers under 25, that rate is 85%. A sexual division of labour,

whereby women are responsible for housework and childcare, is still prevalent. Itrestricts women’s participation in the workforce and often influenbes them to do part-time work, which is low-paid and without benefits. As a result, women workers have more difficulty qualifying for U.I. and receive less benefits; in both dollar amounts and duration. The work done by the programs that will be cut, which

unfair tax system. 44% of government revenues are paid from personal income taxes, and only 8% ,from corporate income taxes. In 1950, corporations paid 29% of the government’s revenues. Can;& s corporate interest rates are the lowest in the G-7 countries, and personal income taxes are the second highest in the G-7 countries. In 1992,93 000 profit making corporations paid no taxes at all. On the other hand, women must pay taxes on the child support payments they recelve.

include care of children and the elderly, will once agaiq be expected of women. Women fill the gap created by social programs that were fought for by Canadians and have become central to making Canada a more equitable society. The dominant message in the media, a message supported by both business and government, is that Canadians “have had it too good for too long” and that our social programs are no longer economically viable. In fact, Canada ranks only twelfth out of seventeen industrialized counties on spending programs as a percentage of GDP. Despite the fact that social spending contributed to a very small percentage of the present debt, decreases in social spending are seen as the remedy to our economic problems. Rather than focusing on government spending on social programs, the government should focus on an

Women are cut off from the decision making process of the Liberal government. The lack of an analysis that includes gender as a factor is related to the fact that only three of the 28 members of the Finance Committee are women and to the fact that women’s groups are underfunded and branded as marginal or “special interest.” The Feminist movement played an important role in the creation of Canada’s social programs. It is also involved in fighting the current cutbacks. Despite the fact that women ’ have more access to well-paying jobs than they have had in the past, all women will be adversely affected by social spending cuts. A society that relies on women to fill the gaps created by a lack of social programs is not a society committed to women’s equality . Social programs are the way in which we, as a society, make up for inequalities which are the result of our present economic system. In a society that expects the poor to pay for a debt created by and for the rich, there can be no such thing as “equality” for women or for anyone else.

Women’s WeekEvents by Raquel David special to the Imprint

M

arch 6th was the official start date of International Women’s Week but many women’s organizations in Toronto, K-W and the surrounding area got an early start with rallies, marches, fests and fairs. The Womyn’s Centre launched International Women’s Week with a lunch time “anti-racism” workshop put on by WPIRG. People who attended discussed issues such as power that comes from privilege and making the necessary links between racism and other forms of oppression such as disablism and sexism. Monday night was the Chinese Medicine and Shiat-su talk and “hands on” workshop. The event was well attended and drew a diverse crowd of women from both the student population and the community. The night began with meditating, stretching and learning techniques that people can do on themselves to relieve stress induced ailments, and then a discussion about the philosophy and practice of Chinese Medicine. The evening ended with women practising what they learned from the Shiat-su demonstrations. I

On Wednesday, March Sth, International Women’s Day, the Womyn’s Centre had an Open House with wine & cheese to celebrate the opening of our new space. Everybody who did not get a chance to visit during that time is welcome to drop by to take a look at our resources. Other events of the week were a viewing and riicrilccinn

the traditional “Feminist Prof Night” , and the play “Les Belles Soeurs” directed by Darlene Spencer. Fabled Cloth was also in the Campus Centre, selling Indonesian batik as a fundraiser for the Womyn’s Centre.

Throughout the week we have displayed a clothesline made up of t-shirts that women around campus have created. After we have displayed the t-shirts here, we are going to send a few to the University of Rochester for their Clothesline Project. The Clothesline will be a visual display of shirts with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by female survivors of violence, their families and their friends. They have invited several campuses around the U.S. and Canada to participate. If you are interested in creating a t-shirt for this project please come to the Womyn’s Centre. We have paints and t-shirts. Tonight, Friday March 10th Sandra Butler, who is currently affiliated with the Institute for Feminist Training and the author of&n@racy uf Silence: The Trauma of Incest and Canem in Two Voices, will be speaking. The lecture, which is being held at Siegfried Hall at 7:30pm, is entitled “Feminism and the Politics of Hope” and it will be about the struggles and celebrations of activism and how to maintain a balance in one’s life. This event is being put on by various organizations in the K-W community and the Social Issues Board and Womyn’s Centre here at UW. 1

OH NO, IT’S ONE OF THOSE DARN FEMZNZSTS AGAIN! by Emily Arrowsmith special to Imprint

I

am so tired of listening to people complain about feminists because their view of feminism seems to be so narrow minded. From my observations, most of their assumptions about feminism and women are untrue. I’d just like to clarify a few things for those who are unaware, confused, or simply dimwitted. 1) Being a feminist does not mean you hate men. 2) Feminists do not think all women’s problems will be solved if all men were castrated. 3) Feminists do not gather at the Women’s Centre to gossip about men. They plan and organize events that will help eliminate discrimination against women through education and awareness. 4) Feminists are not simply exaggerating the issues. Problems do exist and denying the problem will not make it go away. 5) The Impotent was not, and never will be funny - enough said. 6) Just because you’ve never raped someone does not mean you don’t have to take any responsibility in trying to get rid of the inequality and injustice that exists in our society. It is everyone’s responsibility. A chick is 7) Women are not babes or chicks. A babe is an infant. a bird that lives in a barnyard. Obviously, a woman is neither of these two things. 8) All women are unique and each woman has her own specific talents. These talents may include making souffle or designing buildings, and each is equally as valuable 110 matter what the income is. 9) Don’t touch me probably means Don’t touch me. Personal translations of these words are unnecessary. 10) Women who wish to celebrate their womanhood are not freaks of nature and should not be treated as if they are. Being a woman is wonderful and women have every right to celebrate.

The CIAU volleyball championships were held at Laurentian last weekend, and the Warriors put in a sensational effort, ending the season on a high note. It is true that coach Ed Price was looking for a win against Alberta, and a spot in the semi-finals. However, the #2 seeded Alberta Golden Bears proved to be a significantly stronger team, particularly in terms of blocking techniques. The Warriors lost in three sets, with scores of 11-Q 3-15, and 10-15. The Warriors did, however, put up a good fight, particularly inthe first and third matches, showing both their overall talent and the improvements that they’ve made during the year. Despite being the only match that the Warriors lost throughout the tournament, the game ended on a spirited note as Pete Denison (#2) was named Waterloo player of the game. The Plague then moved onto the consolation finals, where the team had a chance to avenge their previous loss to the Toronto Blues. The week before the tournament, Toronto defeated Waterloo in the Division finals, and thus earned the provincial title. As a result, Waterloo entered the tournament in seventh place, and Toronto entered one place higher, in sixth. Howcvcr, both teams earned

second half, he nailed another basket. He did not score again, and the Warriors were outscored 46-29 in that disastrous second half, Guelph went on to capture the division crown by dominating the McMastcr Marauders 76-52 on Sunday. With that win, the Gryphs earn a spot in next weekend’s CIAU championships in Halifax. McMaster, ranked near the top of Canadian teams all year long, awaits the results of this weekend’s playoffs across Canada to see whether they will score one of two wildcard spots into the eight-team tournament. Van Koughnett was quick to accept the lion’s share of the blame for the team’s second-halfcollapse, but credited the Gryphs as well. “Those things happen,” Van Koughnett said. “They hit their shots and we didn’t. I think we still played pretty smart. “When we’re struggling, I start to think, I’ve got to get my game in gear, get a defensive board, not try

to force things, and pick it up a notch. Sometimes that backfires and I force it. That’s the responsibility that I’ve got to take.” The Gryphs just put together that most elusive quality of a champion: consistency. They didn’t always play excellent basketball, but they never played poorly. And they could turn in on and off at will. Small consolation for the Warriors came with Van Koughnett and Balfe being named to the OUAA west all-star teams. Van Koughnett was named to the first team, along with Brock’s Clint Holtz, McMaster’s Titus Channer, the Windsor Lancer’s Patrick Osborne, and Guelph’s Rob Henry.Balfe was tied for the final position on the second team with Peter Brown from Lakehead. Also on the second squad was Guelph’s Paul Eldrige, McMaster’s Shawn Francis, Western’s Mike Milne, and Lakehead’s Craig Law. Rookie of the year was Cohn Jones from Guelph.

ur UW Track and Field Team competed at the Ontario Finals in Windsor last weekend to end the season. The meet started with a bit of a surprise. The Warrior and Athena 4X800m squads were set to do some major damage on the field, having alrcadyqualifiedunderCIAUstandards and maintaining high rankings all season. However, neither team produced especially good results. The Athenas’ squad placed sixth, and the Warrior’s ended Up in fifth. The 4X200m race was a different story. The Athenas’ team took an impressive 3rd place. The Warrior 2X200m race was tough, as the guys had some poor exchanges and did not meet the CIAU standard. This was also the case in the 4X400m relay, where again the Warrior squad came just a second from qualifying for CIAU’s this weekend. The Athena 4X400m team ran strongly too, but again did not reach their potential in the race. The 6Om qualifying heats on Friday night were also well run. Jill Bennett and Alicia Steele placed 13th and 14th respectively, Steele running a personal best of 8.23 seconds. Val Lingard also ran a good race finishing off in 16th. The Warriors were led by rookie sensation Tulu Makonen, who finished the 60m in 9th. Makoncn personal bested twice in the competition, with 7.26 seconds in the qualifiers and 7.23 seconds in the semis. The women’s 6Om hurdleevent

found two of UW’s finest, veteran Alicia Steele and rookie Jill Bennett, with excellent performances in the qualifiers. Steele personal bested and ran the third fastest time in the meet at 8.96 seconds. However, both hit hurdles in the finals, and Bennet finishedin 5thposition with SteeIe in 6th. Both will be going on to the CIAU’s in Manitoba this weekend. The 300m races found the Athenas with strong performances from April Harper and Alison Campbell-Rogers. For the Warriors, Tulu Makonen led the squad again with a best run of 37.01 seconds. Rookie Brian Horgan and Chris Bastie followed up with persona bests of 37.58 and 36.62 respectively. The 1OOOm metre event was led by impressive performances from Sarah Dillabaugh and T.J. McKenzie, who both took bronze medals in their events. Judith LeRoy placed 7th overall. In the 1500m, SarahDillabaugh again came through with the silver. Judith LcRoy placed fifth, qualified for CIAU’s, and ran a personal best time of 4.40.78. The Warrior team was represented by Paul Sudlow, who ran a strong race in an extremely competitive field, placing a respectable 12th overall. The 3OOOm found Jason Gregoire in 4th. Gregoire is a triple qualifier for the CIAU championships as well as the defending bronze medalist. Another notable performance in the 3000m came from Paul Godkin, who ran a personal best in the race.

In the field events the Warriors and Athenas again went to work. In the long jump and triple jump was rookiejumper Julie Franchetto, who jumped well, but not quite to her potential. The Warriors were rcpresented by rookies Jason Simpson and Fred Hazelton, and football Star MikeMallot in thelongjump. They placed 11 th, 12th and 13th respectively. The Warrior triple jump found Fred Hazelton jumping for Waterloo. Hazelton just missed a personal best jump. In the shotput both Paul Serafini and Rick Shea gave strong performances, placing 8th and 12th respectively. The most exciting event of the day was the poIe vault. Waterloo’s Jeff Miller took to the sky, coming down with the gold and an indoor personal best jump of 5. IO metres. MilZerisrankcd#l goingintoCIAU competition this weekend. The competition overall was stiff, but Waterloo held its own. As the strongest team in Ontario without facilities, a full program, or full time coach[ing staff, our athletes have some,thing to be very proud of. The tealm would like to extend its appreciation to the coaching staff and dedicated trainers. Finally, head coach Brent McFarlane adds that the UW Crosscountry Running Team is now Iooking for interested athletes to try out. Since training and competition start in September, it is best to start training now. For more informationm, contact Brent McFarlane at 8842074, or John Swarbick at 7430036.

hc University of Waterloo’s Nordic Ski Team spent last weekend testing their endurance, Saturday the team travelled to Barrie to compete in the prestigious Tour of Hardwood 30 km ski race. The race is well known around Ontario and had over 250 competitors this year. OLJAA all-star Brad Frenette led the Warriors with an 18th place finish, followed by Norm O’Reilly and Kevin Thomson, both of whom cracked the top 40, winning a silver pin. Brian Northan had a good race and picked up a bronze pin for hisefforts. Al Ritchie and Luigi D’ Agnillo also completed the challenging race. Joanne Murray, the only Athena to race at Hardwood, captured a silver medal in the 15 km race. On Sunday, the Warriors carried on a tradition and competed in their 2nd annual Funftathlon. ‘Funf means five in German. The event is a 50 km endurance challenge consisting of swimming, running, classical skiing, cycling, and skate skiing. On this past snowy sunday afternoon, nine Warriors completed the hellish event. Defending champion Norman O’Reilly bested the course record by five minutes and retained his

LUCATDN

title. His powerful cycling and skate skiing pushed him past veteran Warrior Brent Curry. Curry used his brilliant running to power himself to an early lead, posted an impressive time and easily took home the silver medal. Team Captain Gary Pluim rounded out his graduating season with an impressive race and the bronze. Pluim posted the day’s 2nd fastest bike, and passed a fading Brad Funftathatlon? Frenette late in the race. Frenette, who led out of the swim, finished just ahead of Kevin Thomson for 4th. Thomson used a powerful classic ski and some innovative technology to finish a solid 5th. A ‘bonked’ BrianNorthan held off Al Ritchie, our team’s distance freestyle specialist, to finish in 6th. Two of the most impressive performances ofthe day were by rookie Luigi D’Agnillo and coach Don MacKinnon, both of whom lack an experienced swimming background. D’Agnillo demonstrated his endurance with a strong skate ski finish to nudge out Coach MacKinnon. Coach MacKinnon, who prepared for the race by chang-

Funftastic! ing diapers for his newborn daughter, demo.nstrated great courage and willpower to his team by completing his first race of the year with a smile. All of the Warriors who finished deserve credit and praise for completing the event in which three of the nine finishers were carried from the finish. Strangely enough, most of the competitors and many of the Athenas have expressed their desire to Ichallenge the course again next year. Many thanks to our race dircctor, Cameron Frenette, and his crew of volunteers led by Becky McKay and video specialist Scott Curry.

he Athena field hockey team placed fourth overall in the OWIAA Championships at Western last weekend. In the first game against Queen’s, Waterloo took control, winning with a score of 3- 1mGoal scorers were Rachelle Brohman, Carolyn Stark and Linda Mowat. Although defeated 5-2, the team made a valiant effort against York University. The Athenas dominated the second half, finishing with goals from Rachelle and Carolyn. Although Western hosted this weekend, their home base and fans

to beat Waterloo.

The Athenas stole the show with a 4-l win. Again, goal scorer’s were Rachelle Brohman with 2, and Carolyn Stark and Linda Mowat. The game against U of T was one full of intensity, speed and

d sweat. Some of Waterloo’s best hockey came through even though a 6-1 loss was the result. Carolyn Stark scored the lone goal. Onto the last, yet most important game of the weekend: Waterloo and Guelph have been rivals throughout the season and this game determined the bronze medal winners. Due to the bizarre makeup of the tournament (resulting from the ranking tournament), Waterloo had to beat Guelph by 4 goals. The Athenas were raring to go!! Pressing for goals, however, left the Gryphons with many scoring opportunities. Despite an amazing effort by all, in particular kickingback Carolyn Stark, Waterloo lost 4-2, with goals from Rachelle Brohman and Bemice Willemse. Overall, the team ended up in fourth place. Special recognition goes to defensemen Sara Creighton and Kathy Reilly, who helped relieve the pressure on Athena goalie

Yolanda Lewczuk, who played tremendously all weekend. Team bonding in Trinidad proved to be highly beneficial, as was displayed this weekend. We would like to thank veterans Linda Mowat and Kathy Reilly who will be graduating this term. Linda dedicated five years to the team alnd will be greatly missed. Kathy committed four years of her University career to the team and is going on to teacher’s college. We wish them both good luck in the future and hope they will rctum as fans and future Alumni competitors. Thanks to our trainers Shivaun Wilson and Kim Clark for looking after all our injuries. We can’t forget our coaching staff, head cheese Sharon Creelman, and assistant cheesles Jen Anderson and Lea Dietrich. We all know we will miss those 69 am practices. Sharonyou can sleep in; no more 4:30 am commutes..... until September.

sisters, who has just won a lottery that gave her this paraphenalia. In essence though, this just gives the scriptwriter a chance to put the characters together to interact with one another, building toward a climax

of misunderstanding and animosity. With such a script, it is critical to gather some fine actors to filZ the parts, with all of their characterizations and complex emotions. This was where the play really excelled, as the cast almost without exception played the roles with the depth that they necessarily had to have. The makeup work to age young twenty-something faces to hardened fortysomething smoking housewives was very convincing. Many actors may pose as middle age or older, but spoil it with youthful gestures and exuberance. With

these women it was easy to forget their real age, and for this they should be commended. At the same time however, the director should have guided them as to their accents. Either you ALL do them, or NO ONE does them and you allow for a suspension of disbelief. With this show a couple of people did passable accents, a couple others did quite badly, and still others used none at all. This was simply unprofessional, and distracting as well. The use of spotlights on characters during various long speeches was effective...when the subject matter was interesting of course. On several occasions, such as the dialogue between the old women, it really wasn’t, and furthurmore a subplot of the way overused teen pregancy, though maybe poignant in the author’s time, just seemed stilted and contrived. Where the play excel led was in the discussion of the women’s day to day existance. Many parts were spoken in unison, giving them an everywoman quality, and a paticular sequence dealing with the joys of church bingo was quite hilarious. Sure it may seem mundane to others, but it’s the concern of these women in their Catholic churchled, nuclear family environment, and the spectator is drawn into this effectively. So it’s good fun, not without its flaws, but overall you leave the theatre richer for the experience. A good way to celebrate women’s week, one can imagine.

Shooting rub >erbands .at the s ars Elastica w/Rusty and Rebecca West The Uperu House, Toronto Thursday, March 2nd by Greg Imprint

Krafchick staff

f nothing else, last Thursday’s Elastica show at the Opera House was an exercise in celebrity spotting. The crowd was all abuzz with various sightings (Anyhowtown’s Daphne Diamont, a member of Swervedriver), but most of all it was the appearance of none other than Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell that made heads turn. Would the average music fan be able to spot this? Not likely, but this being Elastica’s first appearance in Toronto, coming before the release of their debut album, it was a heavily Anglophile gathering to say the least. You had gothmakeup, all sorts of dyed hair, body piercing everywhere, and nary a plaid shirt in sight. A guy was selling one of the most laughably Brit-leaning fanzines I’ve ever seen (Suede are gods - FACT!) All of this added up to a crowd that were singing along to songs that haven ‘t even been releasedyet, domestically or otherwise. A crowd, in short, that were very revved to see Elastica. Lucky for us, the band seemed equally as charged. By the second song “Line Up,” they had the fans in their hands. OK. so they didn’t leap about the stage quite as hard as

ndaunted by an enormous task like the showcasing of Mucbettr, UW Drama this term is cranking shows out left, right and centre. The latest of these is the Canadian written comedyLes Belles Soeurs, a play dealing with the lives of lower middle class women of the late 60’s in Montreal. It’s a meat and potatoes kind of story, dealing with real people in real situations while foregoing with any flowery symbolism or ‘whatever, which completely suits the blue-collar nature of the characters. In fact, it is the personalities in the show that shoulder the entire weight of the storytelling, since they each tell a different side of life as a woman in that time and place. You have the four Belles Socurs, all quite outspoken, with one being the black sheep outcast for daring to live a less-than-typical lifestyle (ie not marrying and having a mess of kids.) There’s the snobby matron who feels above this rabble, the tough as nails poverty striken wife, the martyr complex woman caring for her feeble 93 year old mother in law, the old church ladies, and so forth. This group is gathered together for the show to paste stamps unto game cards for one of the

IMPRINT,

we might have expected from a “New Wave of New Wave” band, but they made up for this by coming off as the coolest people on the planet for the forty-five minutes they played. Lead singer Justine Frischmann was of course the focus, but the three other members exhibited their own sorts of stage presence. Donna had the ever-socliche cigarette hooked into her guitar strings, and bopped and whoa-ohed most coyly to Justine’s lead. Bassist Annie gave the occasional smile through her “If Keith Richards was female and played bass” sort of presence. Drummer Justin embodied the manic energy of the music with his full-body approach to his skins. And as for Justine, besides being drop-dead gorgeous (I just had to say it,) she led the group without being overbearing, often sharing the focus between her and Donna. “Cheers!” Ms. was Frieshmann’s catchphrase following the music, and we could only salute her back as the band nailed song after song. Like “Line Up,” both “Stutter” and “Connection” set the crowd off, but surprisingly substantial numbers of spectators went just as nuts for B-sides like “Annie, ” “Rock n’ Roll,” and especially the closer “Vaseline.” It was a quick and clipped sort of show, and exactly the opposite of any sort of shoegazcr ethic -- which is what we really expected. They appear to warm to their audience instead of

sneering at them, a practice that has habitually haunted Oasis. With such an ethic a North American audience is going to be more receptive. If they maintain that friendly air, combined with a bit of rock star posing, the future may indeed be bright for Elastica, what with punk in vogue and all. A Halifax band named Rebecca West was the first act ofthe evening, and they showcased a fine ability for assimilation of styles into a whole. To my ears they sounded quite like Magnapop, but with elements of the Throwing Muses, Sugar, and, not unexpectedly, Sloan thrown in. The last song managed to &se Stereolab andMBV together, creating something that was nothing short of breathtaking. An indie album on Cinnamon Toast is due out in May, and with fantastic live shows like this they deserve to be the east coast’s next big hype. Rusty, however, deserve to be relegated to the ethers of nowhere. Their take on Pearl 3am and Soul Asylum (and a pretty shitty one at that) were totally at odds with the musical tastes in the room, and one wonders if the promoter had rocks in their head when they booked this group. The band knew they were playing a tough room, and their showy efforts at getting the pcrformance going only made them seem more pathetic. As Justine and Donna would say “Rock n’ Roll is dead, ooowah!”

ost of us know

Dudley Moore best for his comical role as a rich alcoholic in the movie Arthur with Liza Minelli, or recall his performance in Six Weeb with Mary Tyler Moore. However, Dudley also has tremendous musical talent. He became a choirboy at the age of five and by the time Moore was ten he was studying the violin. At age eleven he was awarded a Junior Exhibition Scholarship at the Guiidhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. By the time he was eighteen he had been awarded a scholarship at Magdalen College, Oxford University, where he earned a B.A. Degree in Music and a B. Mus. in Music Composition. Moore then went on to join a London jazz band called the Vie Lewis Orchestra which eventually toured the U.S. He left the band in New York to play at a jazz club called The Duplex, in Greenwich Village. He was offered a record deal by Atlantic, while he wasplaying there but he yearned to return home to England. When he arrived back home he wrote everything from Pepsodent commercials to ballets for the first five years in order to keep afloat. The doors started to open for him when he was asked to participate in a collection of satirical skits and musical parodies, Bq~nd the Fringe. It became a huge Tony Award-winning Broadway hit. After this, Moore started makThe Music of ing jazz albums. DUL&J Moore became the biggest selling jazz album of 1965 in England. He also composed and scored the music for motion pictures. His latest release is entitled Songs Without Words. It is a collection of instrumental ballads. Moore collaborated with Saxo-

phonist Kenny G. on two pieces and has added some music from& Weeks to his original compositions. On Saturday evening however the program consisted, for the most part, of piopular works such as: the Piano Concerto No. 21, K467 in C Major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Rkapsody in Blue by George Gershwin and one that Moore is known for: Bolero by Maurice Ravel. The conductor for the evening was KU’S Music Director Chosei Komatsu. A native of Japan, he made his highly acclaimed Japanese debut with the Tokyo Philharmonic in 1990. On Saturday, there were fifity-two KWS till-time musicians and nine extramusicians for the evening. The Symphony was excellent and Moore’s talent was captivating, although the attnosphere was a little too quiet and too formal. lt was a relief when Moore changed from his formal black tailed overcoat into his burgundy crushed velvet jacket. Suddenly Moore addressed us and smiled. To many audience members, the parody of Shubert’s work depended on the audience knowing the original. Most of the time only a few people laughed; many watched the symphony members to know when to laugh, most others just watched Moore. When he started raising his eyebrows (staring at us with wonder because we weren’t laughing at his absurdities, and mleshing songs by combining the equivalent of a Mozart piece with -Happy Birthday,) people startedL to loosen their ties. Tine musical parodies provided a sense of balance to the evening’s entertainment and allowed Moore to exhibit his talent as a comedian and musician. The Centre In The Square is a beautiful building and provided a wonderful atmosphere for the night’s

entertainment.

I strongly

suggest to anybody interested in the K’W Symphony, one of only 17 full-season, professional orchestras in Canada, that you attend one of their ;performances.

hat a great evening of music; one that won’t be soon forgotten. Montreal’s Grim Skunk, who kicked off the cvcning, is a truly amazing band that deserves more public attention. At first glance, they looked like the second coming of Rancid, but tlxir music reveals them to be somcthing diffcrcnt. They know where their best assets lay. The frontman plays keyboards, and plays fhcm well. blis playing sounded like a speedy rendition of Vincent Price’s grcatcst hits. When this is npplicd to a ska-like sound, it products marvelous results. The drum kit was covcrcd with flcur-de-lis and marijuana leaves (intcrcsting combination), and added a tinge of humour to the group’s live performance. quite

Four of the five band members share the vocal duties, which adds to the diversity of the music. Not to be missed. After a brief intermission, Vancouver’s Econolinc Crush took the stage. The Phil’s crowd, unfortunately, had not yet become too involved in the show, much to the disappointment of the band. They seem to thrive on crowd excitement, and the crowd did not seem too ecstatic (why do I notice this too frequently at K-W shows?) Nonetheless, they did not let the crowd stop them, and put on an intense performance. The highI ights wcrc “T.D.M.,” their most recognizable song, and “Pssychc,” a Killing Joke cover. These two tracks prove a couple of things: first, they feed off what they feel the: crowd will cI1joy and, second, they arc into the music they enjoy more than their own music. This lack of ego-inflation has to be admired. It took a while for the crowd to get into the Sons of Freedom, but that may bc representative of something. The Sons have been away for a while, and it took time for pcoplu to warm up to them again.

Surprisingly, the set opened with “The Criminal,” a song off their self-titled 1988 album. The set was mixed with songs off all three Sons releases. One drawback to this was the fact that their new album, 72x, has been released only recently, and the listening public has not had time to warm up to it yet. That said, the performance was spirited and energetic. Highlights were probably the bouncing “Super Cool Wagon” and “Call Me?” a song of the band’s second release, GWlp. A trouble light was hung above JimNewton, thegroup’slcad singer, which cast a sense of life over the stage area. Dcfinitcly a nice touch. By the middle of the set, the first three rows were bopping to the music, and making up for the lack of enthusiasm displayed by the majority ofthe crowd (which included me, I shall not deny.) AII in all, the Sons put on an cnjoyabtc show that shouldnot have been missed. The crowd that showed up was treated to three bands that love playing music, and play it welt, They know where the true spirit of music lies.

ombinc Jot Cocker, the lcgcndary classic rock howler, and Keb MO, the frcshcst blues talent around, with a till1 house of admiring fans at Massey Hall and you’re in for a good time. It’s Cocker’s warm pcrsonality which makes him at once charrning and cndcaring. His ability to communicate with the audicncc through his music is amazing. His talent demanded our total attention. For most of the pcoptc at Massey Hall, this performance was an introduction to Kcb MO. At the end of his hour long performance, many fans stood up and gave him a standing ovation. Amidst the darkness and cheers Joe Cocker appeared in a black shiI-t and pants with a tan jacket. Accompanying him was his band which consisted of a piano player, keyboard&, who doubled on saxophone, a bassist, lead guitarist, drummer, and two backup singers. The whole wardrobe scheme was black and white which seemed quite formal. The reason the floor was packed and the audience was so enthusiastic is because Joe is good. If you ask people who have seen him in concert before, there is an excellent chance that they will say that he was fantastic. Tuesday night was no exception. Joe and the band belted out great rock classics like “The Letter” and “Summer In The City,” yet the songs that went over the best were his ballads. The audience immediately

burst into applause at the beginning 0f”Up Whcrc WC Relong,” a song from the motion picture An Uflkcr und A Cc&man, howcvcr I preferrcd Jcnnifcr Warncs vocals to his back-up singer% “You Arc So Beautiful To Me” is another one of his timeless ballads that captivated the audience. When Joe sang it hc was a little wet eyed, and so was the audience. Many pcoplc arc moved when they hear these two songs on tape or radio. However, when Joo Cocker is a few scats away and hc is right there in front of you revealing his soul it is a special expericncc. Other songs from his new relcase Have A Little Faifh were played on Tuesday; however, they were not as well received as his older, more well established songs. One exception was the title track, which is again another ballad. Of course no Joe Cocker concert would be complete without his rendition of the Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s song, “With A Little Help From My Friends,” and Joe did not disappoint us. The lights were dim as the piano rang out the first few notes. Then there were cheers and then it grew quiet as the piano plinked a few bars. The crowd’s anticipation grew and they responded with even more applause and whistling. Then the crowd hushed to a silence as Joe began. There was a four song encore after this, but many fans would have been content even if the concert had ended there, andsome left during the encore to try and beat the after concert traffic jams that were inevitable. The group of musicians on tour with him is very talented. He is a great performer, which time has proven: he’s still around and going strong.

here is a new trend in Hollywood today to make old TV series’ into motion pictures. There is a certain appeal to nostalgia when people hear old names mentioned again like The Fugitive, Beverly Hillbillies, and The Little Rascals . The latest of this trend is The Brady Btinch Movie. It is a sarcastic look at one of America’s most popular and most syndicated sitcoms. The film is a witty juxtaposition, placing the 1960’s family and their residence right in the middle of the fast paced technologically progrcssivc 1990’s. Values clash as the picture perfect Bradys go head to head with today’s trendy values. Greg doesn’t understand when he is being car-jacked on the way to school. After introducing himscl f and his sister to the carjacker, he dismisses the cvcnt as a rendez-vous with a confused teenager. Marsha has the school lesbian chasing after her along with the guys. Jan’s guidance counscllor is none other than MTV’s cross-dressing Ru-Paul, who would be more interested in Jan’s problems if they related to teen pregnancy or suicidal tendencles. The plot of the film is that of a typical sitcom. The family must raise money to save

by Johanna Neufeld Imprint staf!f tricken by a mysterious illness in 1788, King George III of England is quickly labeled mad. With his dithering doctors searching for a diagnosis and a cure, he swiftly succumbs to his affliction. As the country’s political parties vie for control, the ambitious Prince of Wales also casts his eye on the throne. Fighting for his sanity, and trying to prove his sound mind, he struggles to regain command of both himself and his crown. Nigel Hawthorne gives a wonderful pcrforrnance as the misunderstood and ridiculed sovereign. A sympathetic yet humorous portrayal, he is tormented not only by himself, but by others. Good natured and possessing an earthy side, he delights in his nickname of Fanner George. The Prime Minister, Mr. Pitt, does his best to keep up appearances and tries to quash the rumours, but parliament grows increasingly restless. At times, George and his household resemble the Spanish royal family in Francisco Goya’s satirical portrait, The Family of Charles IV. Rupert Everett is George, Prince of Wales and along with his brother Fred, they attempt to seize power from their ailing father.

atmosphere created by the silly and corpulent physicians. Displaying insolent and childish behaviour, the princes often take after the offspring in Shakespeare’s King Lear. As equerry to the king, Rupert Graves plays the dashing Captain Robert Greville. The actor is also known for his appearances inA Room With A ViewandMuurice. Amanda Donohoe from L-A. Law is Lady Pembrook, who does her duties in the name of the queen. Shot in England, numerous locations were chosen to give the film an austere yet sumptuous look, which was also created by usingcontrasting warmandcoldphotographic images. Pictures of fields, castles, and the surrounding countryside are shot in warm tones, while interior shots are often bathed in an icy darkness. Much attention has been spent on the costumes and sets, which emphasize bright, bold colours. Beautiful gowns made of rich silk, brocade, and lace adorn the jewellery laden women, and their we11 coi fed wigs are usually topped by enormous hats. The men are also finely dressed with silk breeches, coats, and regalia. An interpretation ofAlan Bennett’s same titled play, the film’s soundtrack is adapted by George Fenton.

here don’t seem to be many concerns for rising stars like Zumpano these days, according to drummer and figure-head Jason Zumpano. With only an indie cassette to their name, they were quickly snapped up by trendy indie label, Subpop. It seems that Subpop has been in the midst of diversifying their roster of the “Seattle Sound’bands with new fresh sounding ones, unlike Zumpano in certain ways. Zumpano may be fresh sounding now, only because their sound is easily 30 years old with Partridge Family, and The Turtles chalking up some of their influences. How did it all happen though? Jason recalls first meeting singer/guitarist Carl Newman when “I called him a mod, we got into a fight, and the next week we started jamming together.” Filling out the rest of the band is guitaristkeyboardist

Michael

Ledwidge,

from Glee,

and Scream Niemann on bass, who was coerced out of a cover band he was fronting. So that’s the band. The music, on the other hand, is comprable to the Barenaked Ladies or Moxy Fruvous in that cheesy quirky Canadian way. Although, these comparisons are

really stretching what Zumpano is about, Jason claims that “we’re not a novelty band like those others.” Novelty or not, their first video capitalizes on the ultimate in cheese with their karaoke take on “Wraparound Shades.” On the cover of Jimmy Webb’s “Rosencrantz Boulevard” a cool sounding harpsichord really brings out the retro tendencies of Zumpano. (The suits kind of do that to.) But that’s exactly what Zumpano is aiming to do; take a blast at the past and exploit CHEESE. Look What The Rookie Did is their first offering, produced by none other than ousted Grapes of Wrath tyrant Kevin Kant. Other than producing some Grapes songs, this is his first major project producing. The relationship with Zurnpano formulated with somebody’s girlfriend being friends with Kane’s wife. Other than that, Jason relented to comment on Kane’s sordid affair with his former band mates. Anyways, Zumpano isn’t expectingLook What The Rookie Did to be popular, but Jason comments that “my parents like it a lot, and so do Mike’s parents.” Being popular isn’t important for the band, and “if we opened up for Moist I hope we would be hated by all of them” comments retro cheese monger Jason Zumpano.

efore their performance at Phil’s last Wednesday, I had a chance to sit and chat with Trcvor, lead singer for Econoline Crush, whose popularity has grown since Imprint last talked to them in September. You’ve almost finished this tour (with Sons of Freedom and Grim Skunk.) How’s it going, and how arc you being received? It’s been great. We’ve been selling out, and Sons are doing really well. We’re really surprised with how many people are coming to see us, and wc’rc plcascd with the rcsponsc. You played with Metallica last summer. Has that performance made you become more recognixa ble? I think it did in Vancouver. There has always been a crowd that follows music and recognized us, but I think a more mainstream audience started to take notice. In Vancouvcr, ! think it really helped us. Vancouver has always been strong musically. It’s geographitally isolated, and do you think

this isolation comes through in the music produced there? I don’t think so. There’s so much variety there. For us, we have two members from Manitoba and two from Alberta, so we’re spread out geographically. You recently signed to EMI Records. How has that relationship been going so far? It’s been going really well. WC like the way the record turned out. We got to pick our own producer and video director, we got to choose our cover art, so it’s been pretty amazing. I’m interested in your connection with Rhys Fulber (of Front Line Asscmbiy/Delerium fame.) Your style and his are quite different. How has that worked out? When Tom Ferris (formerly of Mocv) left the band in its early dcvclopmcnt, we wanted to work with another programmer. We didn’t feel we were capable of programming at the level we wanted, and it’s good to have that extra input. We’ve become friends with Rhys. He’s really cool. He had more input on “Affliction” (the new al bum) than on “Purge” (the band’ s first EP.) You can notice the difference. Yeah, he’s seen us live, we’re friends, and he knows what we’re

all about. It’s the coolest thing to have someone like that in the studio with you. It made for an easier time. Have you been getting noticed outside of Canada? 1 think we have, industry-wise. As far as the general public outside of Canada, no we really haven’t. I think our record company said they’ve sent some stuff to Australia, but I don’t know how that’s doing. This record’s kind of the beginning of the Econoline project for EM I. ThePuqe thing was kind of we made it, they put it out. This is really the first album for EM1 at the head of Econolinc. Is the video form important to the band’s philosophy? It’s kinda weird. T like videos, I’m a big fan of them, but I think sometimes it messes with the way people perceive the music originally. They see the video, and it gives them a different idea of what the band’s about. I think you have to be careful, Our videos are basically live things, with all kinds of people jumpini around and things. We try to stay away from the storyline video. Do you consider yourselves a live band or a studio band? I think we’re more of a live band than a studio band. But we do like

metal-

the studio. You get the NinelnchNails/ Ministry comparisons a lot. I see more in it that that. If you use programming, you’re going to get lumped into that category. 1 think there’s more of a human clement in our band. What’s the songwriting process for you? Does the music come first or the words? The music comes first. I take it, rearrange it and put lyics to it. What are your feelings on the new album versus Purge? I think this is more of an

We’re really happy with the way EMI has done it. Any final comments? We’re happy to be able to make a record that everyone’s happy with, to be able to eek out a living. We just want to be able to make music and hope people get it. As far as this tour goes, it’s been a blast. I hope everything goes well for Sons of Freedom and Grim Skunk, because it’s just been great.

The album fittingly kicks off with “Big Train” which is an obvious reference to the size of this project. It also places Mike Watt as its engineer. While the train may lose control on a couple of rough turns, Watt is an able driver. Watt manages to mix celebrities with session players very well. On most songs the group used actually sounds like a band instead of a collection of individuals. This makes the album surprisingly cohcsivc. This is also helped by Watt’s grouping of tracks on the album so that it doesn’t end up sounding like some crappy compilation. “Big Train” is the first single to be released, and it is followed by several songs that are radio friendly. Not surprisingly thcplaycrs on these songs are populated by those who have a lot of pop in their music. “Against the 70’s” features Vedder’s trademark vocals to grab the listener with the song’s great vocal melody. The next track, “Drove Up From Pedro,” shows off the session players Watt has asscmbled. This song really sticks in your head. The next couple of tracks “Piss-Bottle Man” and “Chinese Firedri 11,” starring Evan Dando and Frank Black respectively, are quite

hummable as well. From this point Watt starts to indulge himself. Once again he sticks to his friends’ strengths by employing artists who are slightly less mainstream like Pat Smear, Sonic Youth, and Mark Lanegan. Unfortunately it’s here that the train starts to run away. While there are some solid tunes, the most memorable are the ones that don’t work. “Sexual Military Dynamics” isn’t anything that Henry Rollins hasn’t done before and it isn’t one of his better written songs. The cover of Sonic Youth’s “Tuff Gnarl” featuring, you guessed it, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, and Steve Shelley from that band doesn’t expand on the original at all. Flea really shines with some great lead bass on the funky “ETicket Ride” but the song is grounded by Mike D’s weak vocals. The train finally comes offthe tracks with the cover of George Clinton’s “Maggot Brain.” It establishes J Mascis as one of the finest guitarists around, but do we really need twelve minutes of soloing? There are some great moments on this part of the album though. The jazzy “Sidemouse Advice” is infectious and Flea’s trumpet playing is outstanding. The big highlight though is the phone message left by Kathleen Hanna that appears on “Heartbeat.” While her spiel is done a little tongue-in-cheek, there is as much truth as there is humour in it. She really upstages all the big celebrities. Even with all the stars on this album, Mike Watt shines brightest. He is the writer of 14 of the 17 songs. Most ofall his bass provides the ‘Tugboat’ to guide this oil tanker around. He lays back and lets everybody show off, but underneath it’s his simple but melodic bass lines that hold the songs together. He has made a solid collection of tunes with broad-based appeal.

I don’t really know how to start this off because I can’t afford to miss a beat on this review. I guess I should just drop the truth - The Roots is not a hip hop crew or a jazz group, it’s a concept - a whole style of its own. Know what I mean? Let me try to explain where I’m coming from. First off, I must admit that I really could not have fathomed in my wildest imaginations what to have expected when I pressed play. I feel obliged to give props to the man who enlightened me ( I’m sorry if I sound like 1 am full of sh*t, but I have to tell it like it is), what 1 mean is, if it wasn’t for the knowledge of my boy Kirk Whitter (Ra), my life would presently be void of a serious dimension of music. He warned mc and tried to case me into the sound of The Roots, and when I say ease, I mean that you can’t really take a full swig of its funky juice all at once - you need to take little sips. So I poured a little of the album into my stereo glass, and let the flavour trickle down my throat. I guess I should have mixed it with something, tried to dilute it with water or something, because the vapours damn near finished me. To this day, my memory gets kind of cloudy when I try to think back, but I’m pretty sure it was the track “Proceed” that I heard first. When I finally came to, I remembered how the shocking, almost overwhelming sound of pure, live in-

struments had caressed my eardrums. What did I say? Live? Yes kids, yes. Live bass guitar, harp, organ, trumpet, piano, and drums. To make it simple and plain, The Roots came offwith da’ bomb, y ‘al I. Da ’ Bomb. From the introduction through to the last track, this record is so dope it’s sick. I don’t know how this Philly-based crew thought we were ready for crazy stuff I ike this . “Distortion of Static” hooks you and takes you somewhere else with its mad laughter and deep, dark battle rap. “Lazy Afternoon” is just that - a lazy jaunt along a soul covered path of jazz and funk. “Swept Away” is like, well, it’s fresh like a hand-picked apple. “The Lesson Pt. 1” is classic beat-box with a twist (you have to experience this one.) Then there’s “The

Unlocking.” This track will take you to another level with its story of the mystical powers of a magical whore. Everything in between is a complicated mixture of assorted confusion; somewhere between non-fiction and fantasy. What else can I say? The Roots are comin’ off cosmic. It’s like this; picture a weeping willow tree with its crooked trunk and eerie, almost sinister branches. Then get down bclow the surface and find its gnarly roots - the ones that penetrate into the very soul of the earth - and you can begin to visualize the complexity of Do YOU Wmt Mow?!!!??! This album was dipped into a dark, bubbling cauldron of enchanted brew, and it came out gold. Ra, I owe you something scrious.

ies are back. Just check out any retro-night at a club and you’ll know that this isn’t just some fanciful muse of a mad Imprint writer. So it seems fitting that one of the biggest new-wave artists of the past are back on the scene. Remember “Don’t You Want Me?” Well, the Human League have returned with an album whose likes hasn’t been seen since the heady days of our youth. Just like the days of the old vinyl, there are only nine songs;

Swallow Records, the newest of the indie labels to pop up in Southern Ontario, has put out a four song taster. The Kitchener-Waterloo label showcases four Golden Triangle artists with their first 7” vinyl release. With the recent resurgence in vinyl as a recording medium, Swallow Records is doing their part in the “keep vinyl alive” crusade. The 7” has been released on limited edition yellow vinyl and only 500 arc being printed. A must-have for collectors. Jlw fledgling hbel showcases four of their promismg new acts with a compilation that includes a wide spectrum of music encompassing folk, rock, psychedelic and “alternative” music. Not a small accomplishment for a four song 7”. Tracks by Shannon Lyon, The

none of this 17-track digital crap.. . Stepping out of a time machine and landing in the middle of 1982 is the best way to describe this vintage feast for the senses. Fat, arpeggiated, monophonic synths swirl and envelop the listener. Without doubt, the album’s best track is the extremely danceable “These are the Days,” sure to be a hit in all the Hi-Energy clubs. Lyrically it’s somewhat paradoxical because it preaches giving up the past and living in the present. This flies in the face of the entire record and its ancient sound. “Houseful of Nothing” is a bit of a departure with its angry (yet always poppy) theme of regret, and whines of chances nottaken. Themajorproblem (aside from most songs having completely trivial lyrics) is the poor vocal performance by Phillip Oakley. In some places he makes even old OMD sound good, (Trust me, this is NOT desirable). Don’t buy this album expecting to hear anything that you couldn’t have heard in some form fifteen years ago. However, if you just can’t get the synth-pop bug out of your system, then this fix should keep you going for some time.

lessly Yours.” This album reflects all of these quite well, but I have to admit many of the songs fall short of his earlier works. Nonetheless, there are several outstanding tracks. “Buried Alive” is really nice. “Contract” is an excellent song, as good as any of the great songs he’s done before. “Dive” is a great song, with a haunting melody that will stick in your head all day. However, the best song on the album is undoubtedly “S top the time.” Dreamy, with cymbals clashing discreetly in the background and a muted bass drumkeeping the quarter notes, Art’s gravelly voice sings a sweet lullaby. He croons out the chorus, “I wish for just five minutes you’d be on my side,” over and over. I put this track on repeat on my CD player and fall asleep to it all the time. All in all, a good album. Though some songs are below par, others like “Contract” and “Stop the Time”make it worth the money.

Don’t let the title of the new Manhattan Transfer Tunin ‘fool you. This is just another, in what is hopefully the last, of the series of ‘Duets’ albums. Cheryl Bentync, Janis Siegel, Tim Hauser and Alan Paul share some of the lead vocals on Tonin’ but for the most part these talented harmonizers have reduced themselves to the roll of a back-up quartet of Doo-Woppcrs. The bulk of the singing here is handled by guest vocalists including Frankie Valli, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson and James Taylor. They try their best but aren’t successful in saving an album full of 60’s covers that sounds more like the second coming of The Big Chill soundtrack. There is one bright spot here with Phil Collins and Tim Hauser joining forces to cover the 1966 Motown classic “Too Busy Thinking About My Baby.” To be fair to the Manhattan Transfer, they do get a couple of chancei to shine. The tracks “Along Came Mary” and the beautiful “God Only Knows” allow the band to bring out their true taients. Unfortunately those same talents are wasted on the rest of this album.

First The Spoons reform and now this: a band that tries to bring back the heydays of 80’s music. Thrill Squad used to be called Go Four 3. They made some minor rumblings on the Canadian charts last decade. This album is, I guess, kind of a comeback for them. “Comeback from what?” you might ask. I think the answer is the planet these guys have been on since the 80’s ended. This band sounds like they’ve never heard anything that has come out since that decade. For example, in the opening song “Heart of Tears” the guitar during the verses is a complete rip-off of Platinum Blonde’s “Standing in the Dark” while the guitar lines during the chorus are straight out of Big Country’s “In a Big Country.” I’m really disappointed that a band cannot at least incorporate something from today’s music into what they used to play. Considering what they used to play didn’t exactly set the charts ablazin’ I have to wonder what they

think they have to offer. If their music couldn’t sell back when their genre was popular how are they going to sell now? Their music wasn’t very good then and it surely isn’t now. It’s standard guitar, bass, and drums. They try and hide it behind Roxanne Heichert’s voice by placing the vocals up front in the production. While she might have a decent voice, she isn’t any more interesting than the music, This choice of placing the focus on Heichert’s voice also displays the weakness of the lyrics. Nothing stands out as particularly poetic. Most times the lyrics fall into cliche. You can even see it in the song titles such as “Now or and Rain” and Never, ” “Love “Someone to Believe In.” The only song that kind of caught me as good was “Sick and Tired of It.” This song really broke down after several listenings though. This album just serves as a reminder that regurgitating the sounds of the past without applying something from the present is going to end in disaster. The only bright side for the Thrill Squad is that they can open for The Spoons on their next tour.
