Schizophrenia by Dave Imprint

Nsher staff

KWR, the oldest community run radio station in Canada, and parent organization Wired World is now in the hands of two boards of directors. Or is it? As reported in last week’s Imprint, CKWR members gave notice to hold a general station meeting after the board of directors had failed to do so. The meeting was held Wednesday evening, October 26th, at the new Science Building of WiIfrid Laurier University. A membership of 44 attended the meeting (out of a total of the station’s 127 members) and voted overwhelmingly in favour of the four main resolutions. These reolutions were: the dissolution of the current board (passed unanimously); a vote for a new board (passed unanimously); the removal of President Peter Tilkov (carried with one member opposed); and a restraining order preventing Tilkov from either entering the station’s premises or operating station equipment (carried with two members opposed). A 2/3 majority was required for

C

any of the resolutions to pass. The board filled six positions, with the position of President going to Lisa DiFranco, and former Vice President Kim Cowan named as an advisor to the board. On Thursday morning, Cowan visited Tilkov at CKWR’s Regina Street offices to inform him of the meeting. Reached for comment,

at CKWR current board is still the only legitimate board. He called the newly elected board “mavericks” and said their meeting was assembled in “an amateur and haphazard fashion. It can’t stand up to legal scrutiny, it has no legitimacy.” He further claims that the notices of the meeting were invalid and that, everything aside, the station is operating

told Imprint that the meeting was a “civilized discussion,” and that the two of them talked of ways to bring about “some amicable solutions to the station’s problems.” Tilkov added, ‘*But that’s what I’vebeen trying to do alI along.” Tilkov maintains that the

as can be.”

When asked if he and the current board would recognize the new hoard, Tilkov answered rhetorically, “Are you kidding?” As to the resolution carried for his removal, Tilkov responded, ‘I’ve got news for them.” Furthermore, Tilkov gave

the date of November 16th as the organization’s Annual General Meeting. “All notices have been sent out,” he said, “adhering to all of the station’s by-laws. There are no irregukuities.” New President Lisa DiFranco refuses to recognize Tilkov’s announced Annual General Meeting. “The old board is dissolved,” she said. The new board also intends to approach the Royal Bank in order to get them to seize legal signing authority, and to ask the old board to hand over all legal documents of the corporation to the new board immediately. The new hoard was also instructed to mount a media campaign to inform the community as much as possible about the conflict. This is a concern of equal importance to Tilkov, who feels that most of the local reporting on the story, particularly from the professional

media, has been one-

sided. He said he “wonders what country we’re living in and whether that country is Canada,” in describing what he perceives is an orchestra.ted media campaign against the current board. As always, the dispute appears far frabm over.

cuts

With the presentation on Sunday, however, the groundwork is ready to go. The final budget was not voted on during the Sunday meeting so that the delegates could consult their constituents about the document. The budget as proposed adds money in some places and subtracts it in others. All three of the main executive’s budgets havebeen reduced, with the Vice President positions receiving big cuts to their special project allotments. With the passing of the amendments to the Fed constitution at the Annual Genera1 Meeting this past Tuesday, these budgetary guidelines evidently prove to be the last of their kind, as a new form of executive will be introduced into the Fed office in 1995-96. Notable items included a drastically decreased budget with regards to the special interests fund of the Vice President University Af-

In the 1994-95 fiscal year, this venture was earmarked at $140 profit, but came in quite under budget at $2 113 in the red, due to unexpectedly low use and lower grants from the department of student affairs than they counted on. This year the project is budgeted at $6800 in the red, with the lion’s share going towards the one-time cost of palying for the Speaker’s Comer machine and editing equipment itself. Suska made it a point to state that, in thje future, such financial statements should be at least outlined by the outgoing executive in April so that the incoming one can have more of an idea of what is going on, That way, the budget will not have to wait six months before it is put together and ratified.

on July 1 st of this year. At 2 a.m. Sunday, an SLC patron reported to the turnkey on duty that Scoops had been broken into. Plant Operations was notified immediately, and according to the tumkey, “the fashion in which the glass was replaced would only have been a deterrent to the lactose intolerant!” At 3 a.m. the same night, while in the multi-purpose room, the tumkey noticed three suspicious looking males loitering near the scene of the crime. Eventually, the three males were seen removing a tub of ice cream. At this point, the tumkey told them to “put the ice cream back and get the hell outta here.” The perpetrators refused to do so and fled the building, at which point the police were notified. Clearly inexperienced criminals, the individuals returned to the scene of the crime, and upon being

This may appear to most as minor vandalism, but indirectly, the money needed to repair this damage comes from the student’s pocket. Since Scoops is a breakeven business and the insurance company will not be involved, the students pay $500 to cover pointless broken glass and 22 tubs of spoiled ice cream. Due torecent budget cuts, there is now only one turnkey acting as security in the SLC between the hours of 2 #a.m. and 8 a.m. The SLC Management Board is currently looking at investing in video surveillance cameras.

Letter L..etter tu the I/W Community frum Dr, James Rowney

the President,

or the past few weeks the Vice-President Academic and 1 have been meeting with various groups on campus to share what we know about the fiscal prospects for the University, and to discuss in a preliminary way strategies for dealing with eventualities. These meetings will continue, but I feel the time has come for a more general communication. To begin with what we know. In June the people of Ontario gave a strong mandate to the Progressive Conservative party to implement the program outlined in its election manifesto, The Common Sense Revolution. That document prescribed a dramatic reduction in government expenditure and ;L sizable tax cut, the former to address the alarmingly high level of public debt, the latter to stimulate business development and private-sector employment. Shortly after taking office the Treasurer of Ontario announced that the province’s finances and immediate prospects were even more dire than had been apprehended and that immediate action had to be taken. A series of mid-year budget cuts was announced in July amounting to approximately one percent of government spending. For UW this meant curtailing our own spending for 1995-96 by $1.2 million. This we proceeded to do. The Treasurer gave warning that in the fall he would announce the more severe budget cuts required 10 fulfil the commitments of The Common Sense Revolution. It is expected that this statement will be made on November 23rd. On the subject of universities The Common Sense Revolution says as follows:

F

huve sufto set priorities, resulting in lower quality service to students. We believe that stificient funding can be provided while still reducing the burden on taxpayers by $400 million. Cullegcls and universiries mus! take un the obligation to find as much of that $400 million sarrings as possible by streamlining their bureaucruties and operating systems. The remainder of necessury funding can be found by charging students a fairer share of the costs of the education rhey receive.

colleges

In response to this statement the Council of Ontario Universities, through its Government and Community Relations Committee, which I chair, has sought tu do several things: first, through meetings with ministers, MPPs, and officials, to make the Government aware of the magnitude of the operating grant reductioris being contemplated and to impress upon them the serious inherent lisks to universities: second, to inform a new Minister and Deputy Minister of Education and Training of the funding position of Ontario universities relative to universities in other provinces and in the United States, and thus again to stress the attenuated base from which any operating-grant reductions would be made; three, to urge that a new partially-deregulated tuition-fee policy be introduced, together with an income contingent loan plan, at the same time that any cuts are announced, with a three year implementation period to allow universities to plan. To assist the Government to meet this last request, the

NEWS

from the Prez executive heads of Ontario universities developed and unanimously agreed upon a proposal for the partial deregulation of fees that seeks to balance the interests of students with those of government and the institutions themselves. From the beginning it has been apparent that the Govemment would follow through on its intention to cut transfers to all dependent agencies, including universities. As time has passed, however, and the news of Ontario’s fiscal position has worsened, there has been speculation about how much more than was originally announced the Government might withdraw. It appears that it will be several weeks yet before the Government decides what the total figure will be and how much will be the universities’ share. In the meantime the VicePresident Academic & Provost and I, in consultation with the Executive Council (consisting of the Deans and the Associate Provosts), have begun to consider various budgetary possibilities and how Waterloo might cope with them. Given the anticipated size of the grant loss, and that more than 85% of our budget is spent on salaries and benefits, it is apparent that there are three and only three, major variables in the equation. First there is the amount of the tuition fee increase that will be set by the University if fees are deregulated, or that wiI1 be permitted by Government if they are not. The second is the amount of wages and benefits paid to employees. The third is the number of people receiving wages and benefits. While the variables are few, finding a just balance of the legitimate interests of faculty, staff, and students will be a complex and difficult issue. Since it appears unavoidable that the number of faculty and staff positions will need to be reduced, two steps have been taken. First, hiring has been frozen to maintain maximum flexibility until the budget situation is known. Second, an early retirement program is being designed for consideration by the Board of Governors in December with eligible employees having until March to indicate their intentions. Ry that time we should be able to estimate tuition-fee income for next year and be in a position to conclude i;aIary negotiations with employee groups. The 15% of the budget spent on non-salary items will also be reviewed. All managers are being asked to examine their expenditures and make savings wherever possible. We shall seek to increase non-tuition-fee revenues wherever we can. We shall also seek opportunities for mutually-beneficial collaboration with neighbouring universities. We welcome ideas and suggestions on these and other matters. There are, however, some things we will not do. We will not change the fundamental way the University is organized or makes decisions. Deans, associate provosts, and departmental chairs or heads will continue to play the essential roles they have always done in our generally decentralized management structure. If services or programs have to be eliminated, the decisions of which and how will be made on recommendations of those academic or support managers responsible after appropriate consultation with all directly

concerned. As for management, so for governance: no substantive change is intended or envisaged. The budget will be prepared and presented to the University in the usual way, beginning with the Vice-President Academic & Provost in consultation with the Executive Council, then on to the Finance Committee of Senate before presentation to Senate and finally to the Board of Governors. Because of the greater urgency of circumstances, we intend also to discuss budgetary issues with chairs and heads of departments, student senators, and the relations committees. While it is not yet clear what the magnitude of the crisis will be, it is clear that it will take all of our competence, courage, and creativity to see our University safety through. It will also take sacrifice from everyone-faculty, staff, students-both those who remain and those who leave. I was asked at one of the meetings I attended recently whether at the end of this anticipated crisis Waterloo would be a different place or merely a smaller one. I said that I hoped it would hold fast to the character and personality that have made it unique among Canadian universities-uniquely resour*ceful, uniquely adventurous, uniquely good. I pledged that I would do everything I could to ensure that outcome. When I said that, I felt I was speaking not only for myself but for the great majority of members of this community.

Funding proposals presented to council by Greg Imprint

A

variety of different approaches to the expected government cutbacks were presented to student council on Sunday. Two proposals were made, including one put forth by Arts Council representative Richard Farmer, and another made by fourth year economics majors Chris Lowes and Paul Skippen. This followed a presentation by CASA representative Patrick Fitzpatrick that, among other things, addressed Council’s concerns over the Making Higher Educn tinn Work document. Fitzpatrick was in the area af-

ter a tour of the east where he was promoting the CASA funding proposal. The paper, critized mainly over its proposed graduate tax, was apparently well received by student representatives at the University of New Brunswick and Dalhousie University, among others, where councils voted to endorse the document by margins of 89% and 72% respectively. This support, however, was clearly not forthcoming from the UW representatives. MathSoc President Ron Servant expressed his displeasure at the document being of “such poor quality,” and others submitted that such an important proposal should at least be

phrased in language on par with university educational standards. Fitzpatrick was evasive about such criticism of the document’s quality, alluding to the eventual correction of the grammar and speiling problems, and a tightening up of the syntacticquality. When asked if future CASA documents would show improvement, Fitzpatrick responded “I’d like to hope SO.” With the departure of Fitzpatrick, the two alternative funding proposals were brought before council. First on the agenda was Lowes and Skippens’ ideas, put forth in a entitled “Education paper Mortage.” As first outlined in last week’s Imprint, the paper hinges

hirty university and college students along, with three faculty advisors, will be selected from across Canada to participate in the 49th World University Service Canada (WUSC) International Seminar, which will be held in Peru from May 15 to June 30, 1996. The summer programme provides a first-hand introduction to various aspects of international development. It begins inMay 1996 with an orientation in Canada and continues for six weeks of group visits and individual research in Peru. The working language of the Seminar will be French and Spanish and selected students must prepare written reports on their individual research in French. Students will be required to raise a portion of

the programme costs, with the remainder provided by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and WUSC. Since 1448, WUSC seminars have been providing opportunities for cross-cultural exchange. Individual research topics related to the economy., environment, education, agricuIture, geography, gender and development, and the social and health sciences enable students to combine special interests with an overall country focus. Participation in rural development activities and cultural events are an integral part of these experiences. The deadline for student applications is November 1, 1995 to WUSC Clttawa. As well, the deadline for faculty advisors applications to WUSC Ottawa is November 1,1995. Information and application folms may be obtained from the International Student Office, Needles Hall 2080.

tudents at the University of Manitoba are upset. Their professors are on strike, many ‘classes are cancelled, and students have been shut out of the entire process without a voice. U of M Student Union President David Cratzer commented on this isolation at a student rally, saying “Students -are the ones really affected. -We 66 deserve to have a reasonable say, and not just observation status.” Other students attempted to attend classes, only to find that they had been cancelled, or arrived late for classes taught by non-unionized staff because of delays crossing picket lines. The average pay of a University of Manitoba Professor, according to a spokesperson of their faculty association, is $65,000 each year; but money is not the issue for the faculty. They’ve expressed (for public consumption, at least) a willingness to take a pay cut, but are unwilling to let the university weaken the job security provisions

added that the rest of Canada is rarely willing to give the Quebecois the same kind of “peopleness.” “Quebec sees itself as a nation,” said Park. It is not the same thing for someone from Ontario to cross into Quebec than for that person to cross into Manitoba. There is a border - a language border. “They feel very squeezed,” he added. Next, Brian Tanguay addressed the forum with his opinions on the campaign. He noted that Lucien Bouchard is responsible for injecting passion into the campaign and that the “No” side lacks two very important keys it once had: 1) Renewal of Federalism and 2) Pierre Trudeau. In this campaign, the federalist side has made no promise to re-discuss the constitution or the idea of federalism in the event of a “No” win and Jean Chretien is not as popular in Quebec as Trudeau was. Sandra Burt then spoke and discussed the aftermath of a “No” win. She noted that, “after Charlottetown, we know that the possibility for change from a referendum is remote.” Burt recognized the need for re-negotiations between Quebec and the rest of Canada, and also made reference to how close this vote may be and how a narrow margin would not solve the problem at hand. She also mentioned a referendum held in Quebec on May 20, 1980 in which 59.6% of the people said no to giving the government the right to organize a new deal with the rest of Canada. “A 59.6% was not a resounding victory for English Canada then and a 5 1% won’t be a resounding victory for English Canada today,” stated Burt. The last speaker, Professor John Wilson, commented on the aftermath of a “Yes” vote, a sotry which turned out to be quite illuminating and entertaining. Wilson

Wilson also emphasized that a 50.1% vote for “Y es” is indeed a win for the “Yes” side-and that the rest of Canada must be prepared to accept this. In contrast with this statement, the Prime blinister stated that he was not willing to allow the break-up of the country over such a small marg:in. But a “Yes” vote doesn’t mean that the very next day, Quebec is no longer a member of Canada. The separation will occur when the Governor General calls for amendments to the Constitution to be made in which all references to Quebec will be removed. Wilson also notes with a shudder that Preston Manning would become the Leader of the Official Opposition. The question of whether or not Jean Chretien will remain Prime Minister was also addressed in Wilson’s speech. He is the leader of the Liberal IParty and although he may be French-Canadian, he could always represent a riding in New Brunswick inhere he once lived. Will Quebecois carry Canadian passports? Despite the Prime Minister’s warning to people in Quebec on Wednesday night on CBC, citizens of Quebec can legally carry B Canadian passport, according to Wilson, since Canadadoes allow its citizens to carry multi-citizenship status. Those born in Quebec after official separation has occurred wi 11 not be Canadian citizens but ali children born to Quebecois with valid Canadian p,assports will also be Canadian citizens. The law basically states: “Once a Canadian, al ways a Canadian.” Despite all of these interesting viewpoints, ‘Wilson did leave some questions unanswered in his address to the forum. The question of Canadian currency is one that probably won’t be answered until Quebec and Canada need to answer it. The St, Lawrence: seaway, airports, lighthouses and the Trans-Canada highway are all issues which have not yet been addressed. In the event of a”Yes” vote., theh(: issues, and many others which will undoubtedly surface, will have to be resolved. The conclusion of Wilson’s speech opened the floor to questions from the forum audience. There was a good turnout at the event with many of the seats being occupied. This result is encouraging as it shows that English Canadians, particularly students, do show a genuine interest in their coutnry’s future. This does seem to support Robertson’s opinion that not enough of these evelnts have been held in the rest of Canada. But the time for discussion and

Waterloo Public Interest Research Group General Services Complex Room 125,888-4882 here is likely no more graphic an example of a waste of animal lives than their (ab)use in testing a new eye shadow, lipstick, or shampoo. Two of the most common procedures undertaken are irritancy tests, including the Draize occular titancy test, and toxicity tests, including the Lethal Dose Fifty Percent (LD-50). These tests are not only inhumane, but also outdated. The Draize eye-irritancy test dates from 1938, and involves the installation of a fixed dose of a potentially irritating substance inside the lower lid of the eye of albino rabbits.

stances are dripped into, and begin to eat away at, their eyes. The rabbit’s eyes are examined at specific time inexposure and rated for ex-

tervals following coriation. Problems with the Draize test include unreliability, the subjectivity of scoring, crudeness of results, and the questionable applicability to humans. Far from being the most conclusive indicator of ocular safety, even many research opthamologists will concede the inadequacies, and indeed, the potential hazards to human health of reliance upon results of the Draize test. The LD-SO test was developed in 1927 to standardize the potency of potentially poisonous substances destined for human use. In

Federal regulations covering safety testing of cosmetics and household products do not require animal-based testing, and the existence of hundreds of non-animal-tested products speaks to this fact. Household and consumer products are allegedly tested on animals to demonstrate safety; in reality, however, they are primarily used to defend companies against legal liability should their products cause injury, which they often do. In the end, you the consumer have the power to choose whether to purchase products from companies who continue to employ cruel and anachronistic practices from the past, or from those that do not. The choice is yours.

this test, substances are force-fed, inhaled, injected, or applied to the skin of animals, to the point where 50% of the target population of animals dies. The oral LD-50 is the most common variant of the test, and may produce signs of poisoning such as bleeding from the eyes, nose or mouth, laboured breathing, convulsions, tremors, paralysis, coma and death. The LD-50 provides a median lethal dose for any substance, not a safe dose. Moreover, parameters of the toxicity must be extrapolated from species such as rats to humans, a process which is virtually meaningless. In its Guidelines for the Care and Treatment of Laboratory Animals, The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) recommends the use of analgesics and anaesthetics to alleviate any “unnecessary” suffering. If a research facility is found to be out of compliance with these guidelines, funding for the research can be withheld. However, since most toxicity testing is carried out by commercial testing facilities which are privately funded, the threat of economic sanctions is meaningless. Support for the use of animals in the testing of cosmetics and household products is decreasing among both the general public and researchers themselves, Non-animal screening tests have been developed which eliminate the need for the Draize and LD-50 tests. These alternatives include controlled human clinicalstudies, in-vitro techniques such as cell, tissue and organ cultures, mathematiand cal and computer modelling, physiochemical techniques. The chorioallatonic membrane (CAM) test, the macromolecular EYETEX system, the rat mast cell assay, the fluriscin diacetate test, the harmolytic activity test, and others can replace the Draize test, while in vitro cell cultures and computer modeling are valid

Going home this --+zp

Council by Trish Mumby fedintm@watservl all me crazy... At this past Sunday’s Student Council meeting (all 10 and a half hours of it! !), the last thing on the lengthy agenda was “Student Council Seats.” The executive board had decided that it would stop breaking the by-laws of the corporation. Wow! What a great idea! Well believe it or not, this was an actual “Oh shit, we can’t do this anymore,” type thing. For many years the process of becoming a Student Councillor has been: become nominated - wait for a response from the Feds - then be assigned a seat. The seat that you were assigned wasn’t necessarily your seat. If the Feds advertised that there was an Arts co-op seat open, and two people applied within the time limit, the by-laws of the corporation necessitates a by-election for that seat. However, many executive boards of the past have chosen to put people in any other vacant seats that happened to be available, to avoid a by-election, and also avoid turning away or scaring-off keen and interested students. This means, for example, one of those Arts Co-op students could be put in a Science seat, if no one applied for that Science seat on time. You have to understand that those past executives had the best of intentions. When interested and eager students walk through the Fed Office doors, we do the best we can to find them something that they would like to do. For many people this is Student’s Council. In the past there have beenmany seats left empty, so they decided to fill those empty seats with someone from ANY faculty that would fill it. Well, the current exec said “Hey... something just doesn’t seem right here...” At the Sunday, October 22 Student Council meeting, it was decided that all students who are sitting in the wrong seats, as well as the students sitting in the seats that those students should have been able to run for, should vacate their seats and make room for democracy. So, there is going to be a whole whack of by-elections. This is a really big deal. It is poor timing and seems unfair to some councilors. Dalia Thomas pointed out a particularly odd situation. She is an AHS councillor. She and another student, Jason Pole, applied to fill the AHS co-op seat at the same time. Jason was put into a Science seat, to avoid a by-election. The exec did not want to risk him losing interest when he found out that he would have to run a campaign. Now they must participate in a by-election to fill the AHS coop seat properly. This is an awkward situation because Jason is on co-op now, and has been off-campus since mid-August. Dalia is here this term, and on top of being the president of the AHS Under-

C

house

graduate Members (AHSUM), she was also the Chair of AHS Orientation. Jason has not had an opportunity to meet any of the new AHS students; his class/stream is scattered about the earth on co-op, and there will be no co-op mail-out. Dalia is the first to admit that this seems very unfair to Jason. However, this long history of breaking a major corporate by-law has to stop somewhere, and Jason is open to the idea of an actual election, even under these circumstances. I am writing this in the hope that you will understand what is going on. Very soon, you will be hearing a lot about “by-elections.” These are the elections for particular faculty, programs, or professional schools that put your repre-

sentatives on council. To fully understand how important this is, you need to understand the types of issues that face council. Council votes on a $4.5 million budget, gives direction to threeelected, paid representatives of this university, and votes on how they feel UW would like to see post-secondary education funded in the bleak future. In the past, these students have been responsible for distributing over $40,000 in special projects money. Council is a BJG DEAL!!! Does it not seem right that every student should have an opportunity to vote for the person who will be making these decisions on behalf of constituents? Yep... sure does! And now you have that opportunity.

So, you will soon be voting for your student council representatives. fsn’t this wonderful? It really is quite a mess that council has been formed so incorrectly for SUCH a long time. On the surface, it really questions what council is all about, for this to have happened. But, ultimately, this will make council so much more accountable, effective, and useful. “Councillors representing specific constituents” will no longer be just a crazy, wacky concept... but a real value held together by the by-laws of the Federation of Students. I want you to understand that the Federation of Students is genuinely embarrassed and ashamed that this has been allowed to happen. We are humbled by the fact that we need to clean this mess up. It will be worth it in the end, however. If you are interested in running for one of the open seats, participating in the elections as a paid poll-clerk, or even being the Chief Returning Officer (election boss), please drop by the Fed Office for details. I know that this is a lot of information to wrap your head around in one reading of Imprint, so drop by and ask questions! !

their drawings were not the sun and smiling flowers, but low flying army helicopters and military trucks. The positive depictions in the drawings of the children were of sub-commander Marcos, the officia1 leader of the Zapatistas.

In January 1994, the Zapatistas began a revolution in Mexico, and especially in Chiapas, the southemmost state of Mexico. Although Chiapas is Mexico’s richest state in terms of natural resources, the people of Chiapas, mostly indigenous people, are the country’s poorest. They lack basic rights such as land ownership and education. These injustices are long-lived, but were brought to the attention of the international community due to the insurrection of the Zapatistas, who continue their struggle today, although the international media no longer recognizes their efforts. “The demands of the Zapati stas are real, and reflect the needs of the Perez after his people,” affirmed trip to Mexico. Perez vividly describes the scene in Patathe,

region which is used to grow coffee for export. The most visible injustices in the village are the electrical wires and water pipes that pass directly through the village, but provide the villagers with neither electricity nor potable water. The water pipes go directly to Mexico’s national oil company, PEMEX, while the electrical wires go to the military base, which is located about five miles away from Patathe. The people of Patathe have attempted to obtain access to the water passing through the village, according to Slack. They had pressured PEMEX to provide a valve so that they could tap some of the water passing directly through their village. A valve was finally installed; however, it could not take the pressure from the main water pipe, and broke almost immediately. Returning to speak with the people of PEMEX, the residents of Patathe were told that they were stupid, and that it was tlheir fault that the valve had broken. The Mexican Constitution gives all Mexicans the right to accessible education in both Spanish and in the language ofthe indigenous peoples. Unfortunately, this is not always in practice. In Patathe, there has been no school teacher in the local school for over a year. “This is not the only town that experiences these phenomena!” stated Perez. All over Chiapas, and

In fact, just two weeks after the uprisings which began January 1, 1994, a cease-fire was agreed upon by theMexican government and the Zapatistas. This cease-fire was broken not by the so called rebels, but by the government, when the Mexican military invaded many towns in the Chiapas region. One of the villages that was invaded was Patathe. The members of this village, like the members of many other villages, were forced to flee as quickly as possible for their lives.

At the end of August, the Zapatistas heldan international plebiscite, asking if all people should have access to land, liberty and justice. The unanimous answer to this question was yes. The public was also asked if they wanted the Zapatistas to remain an armed group, or to become an official political opposition. The response to this question was approximately an even split; however in the northern area of Chiapas, almost all voters maintained that the Zapatistas should remain an armed force. The people in this area whom the Caravan delegates contacted remained firm that they would not support the putting down of arms. It was felt that by these people that the importance of their movement would not be seen if it were led by a political party as opposed to armed people. The struggle existed for

Is the break-up of Canada immirent’? We’re only a few shy days short If Quebec’s referendum and the polls If the past week seem to be indicating 1push toward separation. Prime Minister Chretien, as I magine many fellow Canadians think, las failed to ever speak in public about 1 Canada without Quebec. There’s :ertainly good reason for this, since he las to walk a tightrope between some lretty hardcore polarised forces. Even 3ili Clinton was warned against ;peaking against the separatist clement thankfully, he spoke his mind on lehalf of a unified Canada anyway, ust as French president Chirac had spoken out in favour of recognising &ebec as a sovereign nation). But Chretien and Canadians have yrown so accustomed and tired of all :he separatist table thumping over the years that we are for the most part Jnwilling to face what may be the Inevitable. Perhaps not inevitable this week, but regardless of the outcome of the iote, the fight for sovereignty won’t disappear. Quebec is, for all intents, nqoses, and even law, a distinct society, but the language and cultural )arrier will forever foster a fire in the ~11~ of Quebeckers. That fire is emotion, a.nd from the ooks of the current strategy, the emotional argument is working. 4r,ybody that’s read the separatist J&amble will no be familiar with “the 3itterness of the cold” (as though lobody else in Canada’s ever had that feeling before), and would have read very little in the way of real fact. But 1s much as this passion will subside in iegrees from time to time, it will never 3ie and nor will Quebec ever let it be defeated. With the referendum heading for a tight saw-off, it looks like there won’t be any clealy defined victors. 5 1% either way doesn’t effectively make a mandate, so we should well brace ourselves for years of more heartache. But for the present, there’s a lot to ponder. For a start What of the Cree and Inuit? What’s most disconcerting to those of us who can understand Quebec’s sense of cultural paranoia and isolation, and therefore empathize {without being treasonous) with Quebec’s desire of sovereignty, is the total lack of empathy and respect that many Quebeckers have for Canada’s indigenous first nations. Bloc leader Lucien Bouchard is adamant that Quebec will not give up an inch of Quebec, despite large portions of her being bequethed to the nation of Canada, not Quebec. And as much as the separatists are all of a mind that 51% is good enough a mandate for sovereignty, they are wholly ignorant and unwilling to concede anything to the Cree vote. Earlier this week, 96.3% of the Cree voted to remain with Canada. If that isn’t a mandate that requires notice, I don’t know what is. The Inuit are expected to follow suit with their own vote. If this is the way Quebec deals with others, it’s time to start talking tough now. Even if their referendum fails, we know that it’s not going away, it’11 just hibernak for maybe a week, so we’ve got to be more precise about just what is at stake. Sometimes emotion needs a good slap in the face with reality.

Contrary to popular belief, things don't suck N ormally,

people only write bad things the Federation of Students or the University in the Imprint. That’s because when things go right, we tend to take it for granted. We don’t pay attention to everything that goes right, because we often don’t realize the work it takes people to make these things happen. I must admit, I’ve participated in this process of ranting and complaining. There comes a time, however, when we should all give credit where credit is due. Some good things actually do happen, most people do have good experiences with Coop, most professors on campus aren’t being accused of sexual harassment, Fed Hall is hopping this year, and our University will probably be number one in the Maclean’s ratings again this year. The Federation of Students has been taking a beating lately, largely because of a poorly-presented funding paper from the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) which calls for a lifetime tax on students. While I’d agree it was a bad paper, It’s not because I disagree with any of the ideas presented therein. I think it’s a bad paper because it’s utterly unrealistic and won’t happen, ie: a new tax that would require the support of Mike “TaxFighter” Harris to work. Many other examples of pipe dreams fill the paper. Let’s remember, however, that the Federation of Students did reject the paper - by a landslide. Since everybody seemed to disabout

I J

like the paper so much, they should be happy that Students’ Council accepted their guidance, yet the controversy continues . . . Nobody seems to know why anymore. The Feds also hosted a successful General Meeting this week. They made quorum on the first try - a rare feat, believe it or not -andpassedanew Executive structure which will be used during the next set of elections. While you can never foresee exactly how well structural changes will work, it is an attempt to make the Feds more responsive to student needs. Kudos to the Federation of Students for moving even further in the right direction. At the General Meeting they also tightened up the rules surrounding absenteeism for Council meetings. You can sleep more peacefully now, knowing that your Council rep can’t skip meetings gratuitously anymore. And best of all, the Feds gave away free beer to those in attendance. Talk about targeting your market. If anyone’s read this far who wasn’t at the meeting, all I have say is Hah! Hah! Oh yeah, wait, I wasn’t there either . . . . Assholes. And the University also does a lot of things well. Mcrcleun’s will be coming out with it’s rankings again soon, and we must be doingscrrnerhing right to have been on top for God knows how many years in a row. Most students you talk to are happy with the great majority of their professors. . . . It’s the really crappy minority that compose the stereotype. And Co-op . . . ah, Co-op. What is there

to say about Co-op? Co-op always takes a beating: on the newsgroups, in the Imprint, in the bars . . . sometimes I think I’m the only student who went through Co-op who didn’t have any troubles. Then I talk to other students who are just as happy as I was with Coop. Let’s be reasonable, when you’re dealing with the number of students Co-op is, you’ve got to expect a few fuck-ups. When you’re dealing with the dealdlines Co-op does, and the competing interests of employers and students, not everyonle will always be happy. Despite these constraints, however, Co-op places thousands of students successfully each semester, with a placement rate that’s the envy of other, smaller, more specialized programs. Kudos to Co-op for doing a great job, despite all of the negative hype. People often complain about bad attitudes of Bombshelter and/or Fed Hall staff. I can’t. I’ve never had a bad experience dealing with the staff at either establishment. I think most people share this feeling: these bars wouldn’t be as packed as they are if they were staffed by a bunch of pugilistic assholes. God bless the staff, II love them dearly - but then, I’m an alcoholic, so I have to. You might be wondering what my motivation is in writing this forum piece. Sometimes it’s just too easy to complain, and take for granted all of the things that we do well. Let’s try and look for it. It doesn’t take that much of an effort. -David

More on MediaServ To the Editor, This letter has been written in response to the article which appeared i n t heImprint, “How 1 spent My Autumn Vacation” (October 13). I am writing to inform the Imprint readership ofhow the company responded to the article, and the impact that it has made. I am the employee who has been placed as a consultant at a bank on Wall Street. The job is quite good, and despite the huge amount of overtime hours I’ve been putting in, I am enjoying myself. I would like to point out that the purpose in writing the article was never to directly harm the company. but to make other students aware of what we went through during our fu-st weeks working for MediaServ. It was hoped that students who had applied would be able to make better informed decisions about working for the company. With that in mind, I agreed that it is only fair to inform these same students of changes that have been made since the article. I do believe the company always acted in good faith in their dealings with us. I was always treated with respect. I have always thought of myself as a full-time employee, and have been treated as such. However, the company was extremely slow in acting on our concerns, and we were left out of the communication loop constantly. Response to the article was swift; within hours of the paper’s release, 1 got a call from the company president requesting re-scheduling of a meeting we had planned for Sunday to later that evening (Friday). In the meeting, we came to several agreements which I will discuss here. My biggest issue with MediaServ had been the lack of any formal agreement on how much I would be getting paid, and whether or not I would be compensated for the overtime that I had been putting in. In my meeting with the company president, we agreed on an overtime compensation structure that wilI be implemented companywide. Up until now, employees have been compensated for individual achievement with bonuses awarded sometime later in the year: The type of bonus depended largely on what type of work was done, etc. Some employees were given trips to Microsoft to do training, as mentioned in Jon’s article. One of the previous co-ops was given a trip to Italy at the end of the semester. However, other employees weren’t necessarily getting anything for their overtime efforts. A process for rewarding employees for overtime above 37.5 hours/week was agreed upon to remedy this situation. Another big issue for me are the living conditions, as described in Jon’s article. The “loft” that we are living in has no privacy, an inadequate kitchen, and is in a com-

pletely non-residential part of town. This is still an issue, but one that the company has begun to make reparations on. We have been told that if we can find another apartment in the city that is within range of what the company pays for the space we are in now, we will be able to move before the end of the term. For me personally, I was upset that I was asked to lie about my accreditation, my degree, my experience, and my age to my employers at the bank where I was placed as a consultant. This is still a sore point with me, and one which cannot be fixed now that I am more or less “living the lie.” However, the company president was not aware, nor did he approve of the measures taken to secure my position at the bank. The MediaServ sales representative responsible has been repremanded, and we have a meeting scheduled with him to present “his position within MediaServ” to us. I feel confident no similar circumstances will occur Ft this company. In short, the company has acted quickly and decisively towards resolving our issues. Our complaints have been used as a catalyst towards re-engineering the way coop students are hired, and we are taking an active role in that process. I will be doing my work report on a “Process for Introducing New Employees to MediaServ,” and hope to get input both from other employees and other co-op students. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has any comments whatsoever on this issue. -Dylan Hmvath dhorvath@zeus.uwaterluo.ca

MediaServ backlash Tu the Editor, Re. “How I’ve been spending my autumn vacation.” I thought that a work term is a time to learn skills needed to better prepare the students for the real world. It is sad that these students considered their fall work term as a “vacation.“They are lucky they got a job during this time of so many layoffs. Did these students try other forms of communication, such as documenting their concerns to the employer or even to their campus coordinator, before they submitted this article? It sounds like someone had taken the candy from a baby and your readers are forced to listen to the outburst, Hope these students are reprimanded properly, as they may soon learn that no one is irreplaceable. Also, this article jeopardizes the reputation of the Waterloo coop program. Are these students representative of those in the co-op program? Perhaps the program should revisit its screening process of both students and employers, as well as stress professional conduct among its student body. -kkery (name

Alternative Educations? Tu the’ Editor, I am writing in response to the article “Alternative Educations” (Oct. 13). Although it came as no surprise to me (I had already heard about these schools), I was sufficiently unimpressed by the rhetoric and poorly veiled hate that seems to be required for an acceptance of these programs. The chief assumption of this or any such program is that “whites” (a word always used in a derogatory sense, in an article such as this. Can you say racial slur?) and “white culture,” whatever that is, are somehow inherently damaging to poor minorities, women, and homosexuals. MP Campy’s solution to this problem basically comes down to segregation. Hopkins tries in her article to explain to us “Oh gee, but its optional,” in an attempt to avoid the segregation label. The fact is that this is exactly what it is. Who wouldn’t want to send their child to a school that treats their child as special. The extremely small classrooms alone (more attention per student) is something most parents would love for their kids. The fact is, the education

system is supposed to be for EVERYBODY and that means not eve;z,‘:s,‘f their needs met. . This kind of anti-white, antimale... crap seems to be the accepted norm in our society. Just recently I read another article in Imprint by a woman who had the audacity to get upset that white males found the phrases “India or Bust” and “Black and proud” offensive. I don’t condone the actions of any of the participants in this confrontation - I wasn’t there to see it so I don’t know what all transpired - but are these phrases not exclusionary? Is Canada worse than nothing to this woman? That is the impression I get from the first phrase. The second one is obviously offensive-if you don’t see it, just replace “Black” with “White.” This same woman went on to talk about her “Nice White” Don. Again I don’t pretend to know all that transpired but this is a derogatory expression and completely racial in context. That is by definition a racial slur! ! Or is it OK as long as it is against whites. A sad comment on race relations. Are schools racist, sexist and homophobic? I can’t answer that. All of these words have lost their meaning in a whirlwind of suspicion and accusation of anyone who speaks with an unpopular voice. I

do know that lots of times while in a mostly white high school’1 felt discriminated against. I was in the Drama club, alfter all, at a school run in every sense by Jocks. And yes, there were many times where I was threatened with violence because of this. It was my choice to be sure, to be apart of this marginalized group, but I have always believed that a person shouldn’t hide the type of person they are just to be accepted. Don” tjudge my 1ife.. - you haven’t lived it. So the question comes down to this: Are our schools perfect? Do they represent everybody? Is everybody treated fairly? NO. This is true of many societies. Whether or not a child is picked on because he (or she) is a nigger, fag, kike, or redneck; whether they are made fun of because they are poor, rich, fat, tall or just someone’s idea of a geek; this is something we have to try and deal with. People have to learn how to deal with the society they live in. Giving people the ‘option’ of not dealing with society only strengthens their contempt for their neighbour, making it a question of Them Vs Us. Finally I have just one question for Hopkins. What if I as a white male heterosexual had decided in my youth that I wanted to go to that “African Focus School?’ I might have extensive family ties in Africa. Maybe I was not able to make it. in regular school. Would I be have been allowed? Let’s not turn our school system into a mess of special interest schools whiclh are “separate but equal.” This has never worked. This is not “reverse” anything... it’s bigotry. -J.

Losing can’t find it. It’s gone. Disap peared. Missing... Lost. 1 hate losing things. It hurts. It’s been a bad week. Lost: 1 set of keys, 3 textbooks, a binder, a 30140 set square, a #8 watercolour brush, 3 pencils from a complete set, oh, and a valid Canadian passport. Gone. Missing. Lost... probably never to be seen again. Like most young, idealistic students, I don’t think of myself as a materialistic person. I’d like to believe that my realm of happiness is not tied to mass produced, consumable, seemingly petty objects. Or is it? I’m beginning to wonder. Most people would agree that our emotional well-being is depend-

ant on our surroundings, that is, our context. Context: our geographical location (in this case, a rolling natural campus painted by the colours of the fall,) daily personal interactions, and our own personal space. These elements, in my world at least, have an incredible ability to make us happy... or miserable. Your room, your house, your workplace are all personal spaces. We depend on them and the things in them to be there, unchanged and functioning when we need them. The things in them, that is, mass produced and consumable, are as essential if not more, than the room itself. What good would your dorm room be without the computer,

Are they being simply thrown out into the garbage, or are they being sorted and placed into the appropriate recycling bins? Once these questions are answered, we will be counting the number of posters. We want to see if posters are an effective form of advertising on campus, or whether there are alternative ways to promote events or sales.

The not-so soundproof PAC door To the Editor, Some students on campus may not know that there is only a single door separating a weight room in the PAC and the Women’s Locker Room 2. Before anyone gets any ideas, I should point out that this door, at least from the women’s side, appears to be essentially an emergency exit, which is rigged with an alarm should the door open. However, I write this letter as a public service announcement for people on both sides of this not-sosoundproof door. My male friends have warned me about male locker room talk, and the importance of ensuring that I was never the subject of such conversations. Unfortunately, I have had some experiences over the last couple of weeks that have led me to believe that male locker room talk can also take place in a weight room. Before I go any further, let me eliminate the possibility of antifeminist backlash here and acknowledge that while, yes, in the account that follows, the perpetra-

tors are male and the victims are female, an identical situation is possible in reverse. We females have also been known to talk in the locker room. (And the bathroom. And the aerobics studio. And the squash court... ) A few weeks ago, as I was accessing my locker (obviously located close to the door mentioned above) I had the unfortunate privilege of overhearing some male conversations - interspersed of course with the clanging of weights and the ceremonial grunts and moans associated with this physical ritual. (One doesn’t have to be standing very close to the door to hear what is going on in the room next door; it is actually quite loud.) This wouldn’t have been any different from any other student conversation I have overheard on campus, except for one defining factor: its crude content. Specifically offensive to me at that time was the unfortunate use of some racial slurs as well as several comments that were quite degrading to my gender. Unless these individuals were total pigs, I am quite sure that they would not choose to use these words had they known about their not-so-enthusiastic female audience on the other side of the door. But amongst themselves, I guess- they felt it was appropriate

To get right to the point, to me, religion is a crock of shit. I’m not going to sugar-coat my sentiments on this topic in any way; I feel that a belief system founded on “faith” is for fools only, and the Christian and Muslim idea of Hell is disgusting. I think that the idea of God is a human construct intended for two purposes, one being to explain inexplicable natural phenomenon, and the other being that it is an easy way to get a population to behave pretty much any way you want. I also find the ideas that religion is good for comfort, and useful as a guidebook for how to act “morally,” seriously flawed ideas. I have never been to France, but I have “faith” that it exists. Why France and not God? I know people who have been to France, I have seen pictures of France, I cannot think of any good reason for making up France. Conversely, I do not know anyone who has seen God or has been to heaven, and I can think of several reasons why people would make up God, which I’ll get to later. My belief in France is not blind; if I believed in God, that belief would be. Slavery is wrong. I think most people can agree to this. Keeping anyone under your thumb and commanding obedience through the use of force (e.g. whipping) is not just. Well then, what the hell is Hell? Imagine a system infinitely worse than slavery, where a superior being demands COMPLETE OBEDIENCE or will make you SUFFER, BURN, and experience UNENDING AGONY AND ETERNAL DAMNATION. This is the being that Christians and Muslims are to look up to? Why? Do you generally idolize those that you fear? Those that have the power to make you suffer greatly? I can’t speak for everyone, but I do not admire school-yard bullies, and I do not admire the Christian and Muslim God. Originaliy, God would be very convenient for explaining stuff; eclipses, floods, droughts, etc. Now, humans have a fairly good idea of how most stuff works, and also are aware enough to know that there is still a lot that they don’t know. God as a tool for this purpose has outlived his (or her or its) usefulness. God has also been used as a tool to control the masses by the elite. Isn’t it terribly convenient that God says don’t screw around with your neighbour’s wife? Don’t get stoned and pissed (the “your body is your tem-

ple” bit)? E3e friends with everyone? Think’of how much easier it would be tabpolice a population of any size if everyone followed these rules. Here, God has also outlived his usefulness. I’ll explain why a bit farther on. I have been told that religion is good, though there is no God, because it makes peop1e feel better. This is garbage. While it is comforting to many, if there is no God, then it is false comfort. Would you like to be lied to for your entire life just so that unpleasantness could be avoided? If your doctor finds out that you have cancer or AIDS, would you prefer that they tell you it’s nothing., because to find out the truth wou1d be upsetting to you? I wouldn’t. It may not be soothing to realize that this is it, that there is no next worid, that when you die, IT IS OVER, but too bad, them’s the breaks. Tha.t is what is, not what you may think ought to be. Finally, the idea of God as a source of morality. This is bullshit for two reasons I’ve already covered, and one I haven’t. To rehash a little, the morality God supposedly wants is inspired by fear of being CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE, not because it’s necessarily that good. It is 1.0 be followed, not because it is right, but because you fear the consequences if you do not obey. Secondly, the morality preached by the Priests, Ministers, Imams, etc., is intended for social control (rernember that for centuries, the Church essentially ruled, and Royalty came to the church for advice, to lbe followed under the threat of excommunication, naturally). In many Muslim countries, the religion still has control. As rulers, it was (and is) in the church’s best interests to have God dictate a morality that makes theirjob easier. My last, and most important point is, YOU DO NOT NEED GOD FOR AN ETHICAL SYSTEM. It is possible to decide what is good and what is bad without the fear of Hell giving you that subtle nudge one way or the other. In Communism, the community (or state) is the highest ideal, and so actions that ‘help the state are “good” and all other actions are “bad.” In a Capitalist system, individual rights (from whic:h property rights stem) are the highest ideal, so actions that infringe upon individual freedom are “bad.” It is only where Heaven is the idFa1 that you need a God (who works the door) to tell you what is “good” and what is “bad.”

and wouldn’t hurt anyone. Well, on that day it didn’t hurt anyone. I couldn’t identify the voices and quite frankly I dismissed them as losers and went about my business getting ready for step class. But today, lightning struck twice. I don’t know if it was the same individuals working out or not, but once again I was an unfortunate witness to racial slurs, gender and ethnic stereotyping and some other generally distasteful comments. And this time I wasn’t alone. I had the unfortunate experience of lis-

tening to a loud, enthusiastic account that included distasteful expressions about some “fucking Chinese girls” in the company of yes, you guessed it, several members of the same group that the conversation was stereotyping and slandering with such gusto.

Period. ,4t the very least, I hope people working out in the weight room will consider the fact that they have an involuntary audience on the other side of that door and check their offensive conversations accordingly. But more to the point, I somehow wish people would reconsider the damaging impact that racial and gender stereotypes can have on people’s self-images, attitudes and opportunities anddo their best to clean up their mouths and their minds for the benefit of everyone in our multicultural universi ty environment. -Junyce

Faculty are not just studying health related topics, we look at the science of these topics. In all departments, with the exception of Recreation, we receive a BSc. Hence, upon graduation, we are called Applied I-Iealth SCIENCES. Granted we are the smallest faculty, we are arguably the most outgoing and extroverted students of UW. A simple example of the campus-wide, all faculty, food drive, showed that Applied Health Sciences gathered more food than any other faculty, by a long shot! ! When you calculate the amount of food collected per capita of students, we blew the competition away! ! With just over 1000 students in our faculty, we are small yet very powerful. All we are asking ofImprint is that you know what the bloody names of all the faculties are; there are only 6, so it shouldn’t be that hard for you, should it?

note that this letter only applies to the men’s washroom and having said that, I’ve noticed something quite disturbing. Have some of you guys ever wondered what those sinks are there for? Or why the hell the soap dispenser is located directly beside them? Wash your hands! (You know who you are.) Have you so quickly forgotten your mother’s rules? Even a quick rinse is better than nothing. Is this too much to ask? There’s really no excuse for this obvious lack of personal hygiene; life doesn’t move that quickly. So wash up, and do yourself and others a big favour. &kris

This is what the kingdom of God is like: A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain - first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.

Climbing the Tree Knowledge

F

rom a young age we are taught to specialize. “What are you going to be when you grow up? A scientist? A police officer? A writer?’ Seven year old kids are asked this often. But most children are less concerned with figuring out their future than with climbing trees or playing with building blocks. When a child gets to school he or she is very quickly introduced to the idea that all knowledge is contained in compartments. Further along in school, they may get the feeling that theyurv climbing a tree. If they climb one branch leading to a science, they must leave other branches behind. Climbing higher on this educational tree leads to an increasing number of decisions that narrow and confine the student’s niche of knowledge. So what? If we have a diverse group, where everyone knows a lot about their small field, it helps us learn more; call it team work. Besides, we each have our own specialized gifts that naturally occupy different boxes of knowledge. 8oth of these arguments make sense, to a point. However, when this approach is combined with one other cultural norm, arrippling scenario results. This other norm is the one that makes us want to climb the tree higher and faster than anyone else. Its tendencies are to keep new branches secret whether they rep-

resent an economic market or a scientific discovery. This norm is competition. Educational institutions compete for the same financial backing. Large corporations compete for the same clientele. To retain their edge, both must put what they find under lock and key. So, most of our newly found knowledge is kept in locked boxes. The same trend can be seen in politics. Different politicians who are after the same post keep a large chunk of their information from the public and from each other for the sake of their image. On a larger scale, governments keep infurmation secret in the name of national security. The mix of competition and specialization results in tunnel vision; an inability to see outside one’s own field. In politics, this tendency manifests in poorly informed and vocationally biased decisions. In the realm of education, it creates a lack of research and development collaboration. In the corporate world, it contributes to the formation of an insular employee core, often unaware of the ramifications of their own work. However, we see the most startling result when considering the possibility of future crisis. What if the wind blows and really shakes the tree: hard enough that some branches break? Someone standing on a solid branch might not be

he Women’s Center is located in room 2 102, which is just up the stairs from the Bombshelter and to the left. The Women’s Center has been open since 1981, and is run by a volunteer collective who set an agenda for each semester. We work collectively towards reaching those goals. We feel that a safe environment should be provided for women to gather together, work collectively and support one another in their 1i fe and goals. The Women’ s Center believes that institutionalized discrimination against women exists in Canadian Society. You may know this as the patriarchy. However, we feel that men must accept and acknowledge that they receive special privilege in Canadian society and must actively pursue a means to end this. Also, women must get involved to ensure that the gains of the women of the past do not slip away. We believe that women have 5 choices in regards to reproductive health; Motherhood, Contraception, Abortion, Adoption, and Abstinence. We are committed to ensuring that these choices remain safe, accessible and that access to services supporting the options of Contraception, Abortion and Birth should be free. We believe that women should be supported throughout their lives in their

choices and have unbiased support networks which are available in times of need or crisis which reflect the changing needs of women. We aim to establish a supportive and safe environment that is conducive to and encourages women to empower themselves and to support other women. We aim to increase social awareness of discrimination through public and political action. We aim to challenge misinformation. We support groups, societies and individuals who believe that there is no peace without justice. The U of W Women’s Center offers many resources. Books, magazines, periodicals, files and much more written about women, and in most cases by women. We also offer an environment where women of colour can gather, alone or in the larger collective. We offer space to groups of women who may belong to a larger group but may want to pursue an issue, work on a fund-raiser, or plan an event. We also offer a space for women who only require to meet for a brief period of time in a convenient, comfortable environment. We are interested in knowing what your group has got going on.

aware of the breakages, let alone able to assist. In other words, if North America were faced with an economic crisis, political upheaval, or severe social-cultural decay, the lack of links between our various branches would result in a variety of isolated reactions that would stem from tunnel vision and lack of unity. What can we do? How can we build links between our various branches? We could treat education less like a race to climb a tree and more like building blocks. When a child plays with blocks she tries to see a whole structure. She is also trying to place the blocks in such a way that her structural vision for all the blocks works. A block builder is, if nothing else, a generalist. It is tragic that at university, one of the richest mediums available for the cultivation of a generalist, there is a large majority of specialists. This situation is changeable. As responsible block builders in education, politics, or business, generalists are important. But in the event of severe cultural upheaval, where a tree of knowledge would be torn apart, those with the ability establish links between the various compartments of knowledge are invaluable.

I was surfing the ‘Net the other day and on the “Internet Search” page I saw an advertisement for the one and only L. Ron Hubbard. In case you’re interested, L. Ron Hubbard’s writings are the foundation for a cult known as the Church of Scientology. Regarding the Church of Scientology, I will say this: I would not recommend joining it. I will leave it at that. Advertisements like this are not uncommon on the Internet. They tend to pop up wherever there is a potential market in the people linked up to a particular page. This is the new forum for making contact with the unsuspecting public. The Internet is a breakthrough of sorts in making initial contact with others, but beyond that, it has had very little effect on meaningful communication. The pundits still maintain that the Internet is a leap forward in the dissemination of information and that it could eventually parallel the television in terms of social impact. If only this were true. In today’s so-called post-industrial or information economy, information is fast becoming the most valuable commodity, because it is a means by which you can gain access to almost all others. But as with any other commodity, if it is valuable, people are not going to give it to you for free. Most things accessed through the Internet are free of charge. As a result, the vast majority of the information on the Internet is, well, use1ess. You can access web sites for various corporations, iead snippets of news, browse through people’s homepages, find out about your favouri te rock group, shop with credit card number at the ready, and generally muck about. However, corporations’ homepages and virtual malls are mere propaganda and advertising, useful only if you are searching for product information (on things you may eventually buy) or looking for a job. The news available is only the bare bones stuff that CNN, Time and Wired are willing to post to get you to go to your local cable operator or to the newsstand. As for the

fan-based homepages, who really cares about a particular band’s ups and downs and releases and bootlegs? Interesting, maybe. Valuable? Not bloody likely. Obviously, this does not cover everything available, but the trend is clear - if it wasn’t free before, it probably still isn’t now. In the end, a large portion of the Internet is a means to get you to spend money on various goods and services. So the Internet is the world’s largest pile of junk. mail, pamphlets and propaganda. The only difference is that it is no longer unsolicited. If you are reading it, it is because you want to read it, and not because it landed on your doorstep. If this is what they mean by empowering the user, 1 think I’ll stick with my remote control and my wallet. It then comes as no surprise that the use of the tntemet is quite minimal in industry. Dissemination of product information is the only major advance, as cumbersome manuals or catalogues can now be accessed online. But even the widespread use of e-mail in industry still cannot compete with the speed and convenience of a good voicemail message on the telephone system. People in the real world don’t have time to sift through mounds of information of varying interest but little use. This brings us back to the question of advertising. Will funds from advertising, ahem, liberate valuable information on the Internet the way they have for television and the printed media by making it cheaper for the average user? For the time being, no, since users probably will not put up with extended transmission times arising from flashy advertisers’ graphics or messages. In future, perhaps, as computers get faster, baud rates increase and the amount of data has a decreasing effect on transmission times. Then advertising will influence the Internet and give it all sorts of biases, most of which it fortunately lacks at the moment. Influences present or otherwise, it will still be quite a while before the Internet becomes truly useful.

impulsive. It is usually taken orally and induces a mild stimulant effect. It can also cause hallucination or perceptional sensations. The effects of the drug usually wear off in 4-6 hours. Ecstasy has many adverse effects. These include paranoia, hallucinations, insomnia, tachycardia, muscle stiffness, and grinding of teeth, Other adverse effects such as weight loss, exhaustion, jaundice, irritability and paranoia have been reported in regular users. Confusion and depression may last for several weeks after a single dose. Long-lasting psychiatric complications have also been reported. Dancing at raves is fast and hard. Some dancers have a tendency to smear themselves with Vicks Vaporub, claiming that this provides a high. Ecstasy compounds the hyperthermia caused by rigorous dancing. Convulsions, hyperpynexia and collapsing have been commonly reported. To minimize these risk factors, dancers should wear loose clothing, drink plenty of fluids, and stop dancing when feeling tired.

Psychologically, it makes users feel that it is a necessity to use Ecstasy in order to enjoy the Rave parties.

Self Medication: The Inborn Hazards

T

here is an unprecedented surge of interest in health and wellness issues in the college-going population of today’s world. Students are taking a more active role in their personal health care and they are looking to pharmacists and other health care professionals to take on the role of advisers. The students are increasingly interested in practising preventive medicine. These students are interested in over-the-ounter (OTC) medication or wellness-related items like vitamins and minerals, high energy food and diet products or high fibre supplements. This provides for a good interactive opportunity for the pharmacist to forge a partnership with the students. There is no doubt that this trend is a step in the right direction - better informed patients are usually healthier patients. However, for some patients, a little knowl-

edge can be a dangerous thing. Some patients may dismiss their pharmacists’ advice, inferring that they know it all and don’t need any counselling. The use of OTC medications and the increasing prominence in the field of personal health and wellness have provided an interesting opportunity for interaction and counselling pathways with fhe patients. The pharmacist is usually called upon to engage patients in conversations about the OTC medications they are using and to educate them on their use, and on the possible alternatives. As patients become more involved in the decision making process about their personal health care there is a growing problem of drug noncompliance by patients. This is especially prevalent among patients who are unaware that some OTC medications can interfere with prescription therapies.

Thus the new focus is for the pharmacist to take a more active and responsible role in the therapies of their patients. The process goes both ways with an equal emphasis on the patient getting involved. This is all the more difficult as patients are often choosing OTC medications themselves, or simply picking up something that has been recommended by a family member or a friend. Therefore, in conclusion, the patient’s new responsibilities include being more knowledgeable about the role medicines play, and teaming up with their pharmacist as a partner to ensure that the therapy has a chance to work. -2oe

informative or clear. I might agree privately with the assertion that “so few provinces have an effective method of integrating college-based vocational skills with university-based critical thinking skills” (page 3 of the policy paper’s section on education funding) which affect the flexibility of the Canadian labour force. However, to make this paper more than just a rant about budget cuts to education, all the facts have to be presented with reliability. This “policy” paper cannot even pretend to do that. I may not know how the types of schools compare statistically, or how the country compares from the above viewpoint. However, I would want to know, befure ‘I started advocating action to students, administration and government. This issue was, in fact, addressed. Some of the research was done after the submission of the policy proposal. It was synthesized in a recent discussion paper entitled Setting u Vision, A CASA discussion document on Post-Secondary Education in Canada. This was put together to outline in more depth and with greater accuracy the problems currently faced by colleges and universities, as well as exploring viable solutions. If the solutions are viable, the document has not proven that to me. Rationalization may very well amount to “cost savings which easily reach into tens of milions of dollars annually ...“(page 10 of the discussion paper). However, when the discussion then goes on to dismiss all three of its own models of rationalization, without proposing a viable alternative and without showing any budgetary calculations - I’m

‘ot too long ago, the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) proposal on funding for University (Post-secondary) education was rejected by our student government. In the paper dated May 22.1995, CASA claimed to represent 11 (now 12) member schools, collectively amounting to over 200,000 students. Why, then, was a document, seemingly of such great importance to all students, almost unanimously (11 to 3 was the fma1 count, I believe) rejected at Waterloo? While the intentions of the document were quite good, the results are both disappointing as such and a sign of the greater problems that beset this young organization. Intuitively, I tend to agree with a large number of CASA’s assertions, statements and opinions. More than that is needed, however, for a convincing policy paper that sets out to reform the entire post-secondary education system. The policy paper, which is based on the assumption that it will be accepted by member universities in an upcoming referendum, polling 15 universities at the end of October, is broad enough to be a good starting point. However, it is not backed by facts or evidence and therefore seems more reactionary than well-founded. This is due in part to the fact that research was not done until after the policy was presented. The discussion document was meant to explain and expound on the issues surrounding the funding of education. It is three times as long as the portion of the of the policy paper that does this. However, it is no more

confused. The Graduate Beneficiary Contribution (GBC) is a very reasonable idea to me, especially as the policy document complains over and over that students are facing increased tuition fees which decrease accessibility. However, neither the policy document nor the discussion paper that follows it allow for the conclusion of that payment. What it amounts to is that graduates (if one reads the paper as it stands) are to pay for their education for the rest of their lives. I may not have a problem with it, and you may not, but I think the majority of people affected by this measure would not take too kindly to it. Just a note: Even if the policy document had been accepted by the Feds, a referendum would likely not have been held at the end of this month. It would have cost too much money. Ask the Feds. Both the Policy paper and the Discussion are riddled with grammatical, syntactical and spelling errors. The Policy contains

no footnotes or appendices regarding sources of information. Neither of the papers include page numbers, and the Discussion paper that was originally sent to the various student councillors contained foot- or endnote numbering, but no foot- or endnotes.

hrough the newsgroups, listening to students, attending council meetings and just generally having my “ear to the ground,” I know that there are still some major misconceptions about CASA that I would like to clear up conclusively. One of the biggest areas of confusion is the time lines. Now, I am going to go through this as simply as possible, so here goes... Dec. 1994: Student Council votes to “accept in principle the pursuit of membership in CASA upon review of the by-laws.” Fed. 1995: Student Council passes that “Student Council approves the amendments to the CASA constitution with a roll-call.” June 1995: CASA National Director Alex Usher comes to the council meeting to discuss the principles, goals, and just generally to field questions about CASA; Student Council votes in favor of “University of Waterloo, Federation of Students becomes a part of CASA.” In early September or late August, along with the minutes of the August meeting and the agenda of the September meeting, councillors found the CASA policies in their mailboxes+ They also found a discussion document called Setting a Vision: A CASA discussion document on Post-Secondary Education in Cunudu. The paper was a creq rough draft of what would later become “Making Higher Education Work.” The goal of this document was to present creative alternatives to the funding crisis facing post secondary education, within a general discussion of options aimed at engendering a debate on the future of post secondary eduction in Canada. On the agenda of the September meeting were the following motions: “that Students’ Council approve the CASA discussion document as a basis for the Real Choices Campaign,” and “that Students Council ratify the set of policies adopted by CASA closing plenary on May 22nd, 1995.” The Real Choices Campaign was an attempt to get governments and businesses looking at different funding options, other than the slash and bum approach that CASA, and all students, should fear. CASA gave its schools two options for the campaign: Signature and/or Referendum. The Signature Campaign was an attempt to get business, education, and government leaders to read and appreciate the document Making Higher Education Work (draft version entltled Setting a Vision). The Referendum campaign was holding a referendum regarding the issues in the paper, in the hopes of overwhelming acceptance and extensive media coverage. The campaign was all about get-

ting the attention of the decision makers. At that September 17th meeting, many councillors felt that they hadn’t had sufficient time to digest the economic principles and concepts behind the paper, let alone take them to their constituents, try to make them understand them, and collect feedback. A motion was passed to hold an emergency council meeting on September 27th, to review and vote on the CASA documents. In that time frame, many councillors attended their faculty meetings and attempted to educate their constituents about the issues. At the emergency meeting on September 27th, the CASA paper, Muking Higher Education Work, was defeated. This meant that UW students were not in favour of some points in the document, in particular Part Four (Graduate Beneficiary Contribution). OK. CASA wrote a paper outlining how they felt post-secondary education should be funded in our future of budget cuts and a funding crisis. UW Student Council did not like it. End ’ 0 ‘ Stacy on CASA. The paper left much to be desired, in terms of grammar and spelling. At the October 22 council meeting, many students let Atlantic Regional Director, Pat Fitzpatrick know that! That is the beauty of CASA. It is all based on what Student Councils have to say, not Student Government Executives. In CASA, councils vote on each issue separately. It is a fact that UW students pay to lbe members of CASA, but that does not mean that we automatically do what CASA does, or believes what CASA does. CASA never assumes that 200,000 students believe the same things. CASA is an organization that strives forconsensus. UW’s voice has and will continue to be voiced to CASA as will other members schools. Now UW students are working hard on their own funding models. I have seen at least 5 different potential models come from UW students. These are not class projects or extra-curricular activities; these students are concerned about PSE funding and are doing their damnedest to bave a say in what the government has planned for us. CASA has certain views on how PSE should be funded and is taking those views to education, business, and government leaders. Our next step is to work with the other member schools and continue

t the beginning of September, the Ontario Universi ties Athletic Association’s decision to increase the football regular season from seven to eight games was a curious footnote to a brand new season. Now, that eighth game looms rather large for the University of Waterloo Warriors. Thirteen days ago, the Warriors were up by 15 points on the No.1 Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks, and looked like they would be ranked among the nation’s top five teams soon afterward. Instead, they survived a Golden Hawk comeback only to salvage a tie, and then lost 2 I- 14 to the York University Yeomen last weekend. Now, Waterloo just might not make the playoffs. First of all, here’s what needs to happen. Waterloo needs a win tomorrow over the Gryphons at the University of Guelph, plus a York loss to the Western Mustangs or a Toronto Varsity Blues loss to the Windsor Lancers. The Waniors sit in fifth spot right now, behind Laurier, Western, Toronto, and York. Waterloo scored a late touchdown to beat Guelph 20-16 earlier this year, and the Gryphons will be gunning for revenge. Against York, Waterloo outgained the Yeomen 301 yards to 2 11, but couldn’t put the points on the board. “We made too many mistakes

h! How the mighty have fallen, and how the meek have inherited the earth. Rising, like a phoenix from the ashes, to the forefront of OUAA/ OWIAA Badminton, the University of Waterloo Varsity Badminton Team has sent tremors reverberating straight to the heart of the once-dominant University of Westem Ontario Badminton Program. TheMen’sand Women’s teams combined won more matches overall than any other university in attendance at their first tournament of the 1995-96 campaign. Waterloo finished the weekend with 36 successful matches notched in their belts, narrowly edging out Western with 35 victories to stake the unofficial claim of *Best University of the Weekend.’ Guelph ended up with 27; McMaster, 25; and ‘expansion team’ Brock with 1. This tremendous result will serve primarily as a moral victory , . since* the, .qenS teams.,,

compete in independent leagues. Consequently, the Warriors and Athenas both find themselves in sole possession of second place in their respective leagues, indicating that there is yet some unfinished business for both teams to attend to at future tournaments. The Athenas, finishing with a remarkable 19-5 record, were spearheaded by rookie sensation, and UW Athlete of the Week, 17 yearold Lindy Loh, in her first year at Waterloo, and by the dedicated sophmore Julie Swire. Both women went undefeated this weekend, winning all 8 of their singles matches and pairing up to win all 4 of their double matches without surrendering even a single game! With their leadership, the Athenas of Waterloo are serving notice to the rest of the league that they are good’n’ready to challenge for top spot in the province this year.

continuing his torrid season with 26 rushes for 134 yards. Fullback Mike Malott was surprisingly quiet with only 29 yards on 11 carries. However, Malott did have a huge 61 -yard run called back because of penalities. The quarterbacking switch continued as well but, backup Ryan Wilkinson replaced starter Kevin Danschinko earlier than usual, midway through the first half. Wilkinson’s performance was not as inspirational as Fdns have come toexpect this year. He rushed for only 18 yards and passed for 63, but commited two turnovers, “We played Wilkinson for three quarters and he had an interception and a fumble that were disastrous to us,” Knight said. “He showed us that he’s a freshlman. He made the kind of mistakes a freshman makes.” Knight continued to say that neither player has established himself as a consistent starter, forcing his platooning strategy to continue one more week. For York’s part, they showed just the kind of intensity that has earned them four wins this year, as they discover the kind of euphoria Waterloo found six years ago. Down 14-6 in the fourth quarter, the Yeomen tied it up with an 11 -yard TD pass from Marie110 Lio to Andre Batson followed by a twopoint convert to running back Leonard Jean-Pierre. Minutes later, Wilkinson fumbled deep in UW territory and York recovered at Waterloo’s seven-yard line. Batson second touchdown put York up for good, 2 1 - 14,

The Warrior team had its hands full trying to steal some victories from the powerful Western Men’s Squad, while at the same time defending challenges from a gritty McMaster group. UW’s other Athlete of the Week, Craig Smith, played a pivotal role in these two team goals. After losing the first game to his McMasteropponent 1%lOandtrailing 10-2 in the second game, Craig stormed back to win the match 1015, 15-12, 15-8. This victory kept the men’s team even with McMaster following the sound victory by the Warrior’ s no. 1 singles player, Dan Frank, over Man’s Chris Durdan ( 15-6, 15-6). After singles play Saturday, Waterloo and McMaster were deadlocked in second place with I 1 victories a piece and a 2-2 record versus each other. This set the sage for

McMaster was unable to match this feat and so it end.ed; Waterloo Warriors edged McMaster marauders by 1 victory to claim 2nd place behind the Western gang. When asked about his reaction to the weekend results, rookie coach Dave Magyar, smiling, replied ‘“This is just the beginning. We’re training hard, playing hard, and having a generally good time. If we stay positive and1focused, we’ll win those close matches and, who knows... both teams in the playoffs would be nice, maybe even on OWIAA banner, or OUAA banner would be in ord.er! ! !” The Badminton Team plays its next tournament November 4,5 at McMaster university against the teams from the East Division.

very few years, an athlete comes along and captures the attention of everyone connected to the sport he or she competes in. At the University of Waterloo, we have such an athlete, a man who, with God-given talent and the ability to harness it’ reminds us sports fans the true meaning of competitiveness and the enjoyment that can be derived from hard work and determination. That man is Jason “Jaguar” Gregoire, the mainstay of the Warrior Men’s Cross-Country team for the past five years, and more than that, the top runner in the Ontario Universities Athletic Association this season. Starting tomorrow at the North Campus cross-country trail in Waterloo, Gregoire will begin closing out his university running career that will, most likely, culminate in a date at the Canadian Championships in two week’s time. This year, the Ottawa native is a favourite to win everything, a product of past successes and frustrations, tampering with routine, unbelievable amounts of training and preparation, and achieving a proper competitive state of mind. “I race best when I’m totally relaxed,” smiles the Jaguar. “I’ve learned over the years the actual race is not worth being nervous over. Your training and preparation determines your readiness for a race.” Gregoire trains seven days a

week, performing different running drills each day, according to a schedule ingrained in him by coach John Swarbick, who has overseen Jason’s progress from day one at Waterloo. Gregoire also keeps active running track and field, as well as being a Nordic skiing enthusiast. Truly, this man is always on the run. Starting out in Grade 12, Gregoire was cut from his high school hockey team, and instead of feeling sorry for himself, decided to give running a crack. Blessed with perfect crosscountry genetics, the sleek Gregoire has combined his body with a strong mental approach that has given him the edge over the rest of Ontario. “Sometimes you feel the pain, but you have to keep on going,” says Gregoire. “I try to transfer the pain over to another competitor, thinking ‘Hey, if I’m hurting, so is he.’ ” Gregoire has also changed his thinking when entering a race. “Before, I always thought, ‘Well, this guy is higher-ranked. I’ll finish second.’ Then, ‘whoops, there’s another guy. Now I’m third.’ Now, I don’t think like that anymore. I tell myself to run the best I can, and everything will fall into place.” Gregoire’s race-day preparation has evolved over his years of competiton. He used to listen to heavy-metal, upbeat music before the race to pump him up, but now, he depends on his consistent training methods and not dwelling on the up-coming race. He is in a

The ability to share something as a team was area1 rush. In cross-country, the achievements I have are all personal. When a

whole group of people accomplish something, it’s special.” Three years ago at the CIAU’s in Edmonton, Gregoire turned the corner in his cross-country career. Expected to finish ninth, Gregoire grabbed a bronze medal, using his formula of keeping pressure-free and enjoying himself for the first time. “You have to run for the right reasons”’ observes Gregoire. “Like any sport,” the Jaguar continues,

“having fun is paramount.” This weekend, Gregoire is expecting to give his all, his last kick at the can, and wrap up his university career as an Ontario Champion. In the future, Gregoire aspires to compete for Canada and one day, perform on the Olympic stage. “All I can hope for is that I do my best this week-end,” Jason observes. Gregoire, however he finishes this weekend, has single-handedly put Waterloo on the cross-country map. He hopes runners will look at Waterloo and see there is no reason success cannot be had at this University. “I’ve really enjoyed representing my university,” reminisces the Jaguar. “We’ve had some great times, and I hopeany success I have had bodes well for our running program.” Oh, has it ever. Five years from now, when Waterloo’s varsity sports’ Hall of Fame commitee meets, the name on their tongues will be Jason “the Jaguar” Grtegoire. For good reason t too. Gregoire is one of those athletes that forces people to stop everything and take notice, to admire, and to dream of what it would be like to be in the gifted athlete’s shoes. He lbrings out the beauty in his sport, and underlines wfiat sports really is all about. In Jason Gregoire, there is no speculation. Only calm. Come out tomorrow and watch Gregoire run at the North Campus trail. Come out and watch a real champion.

he law of averages is some consolation for Tom Kieswetter. The Waterloo Warrior basketball head coach is poring over a statistics sheet that looks like a triage priority list in an emergency ward. Those pieces of paper tells the tale of a poor -- no, abysmal --

shooting performance from his young Warriors in two losses at last weekend’s exhibition roadtrip to the University of New Brunswick’s Fall Classic. “We’re a young team, and we’re showing our youth early in the preseason schedule,“Kieswetter says. “We’ve got six first-yearplayers and five second-year players, so we have a lot of inexperience.” Kieswetter is right to frown at these numbers, but it’s pretty cer-

tain that the Warriors won’t perform quite this poorly as they begin to gel as a team and get ready for next month’s Naismith Classic tournament and January’s regular season. Two losses, 70-59 to the host UNB Sea Wolves last Friday and then a 95-67 debacle versus the University of Prince Edward Island Panthers last Saturday, featured scary numbers. Against UNB, the Warriors

shot 3 1 per cent from the field, 20 per cent from beyond the threepoint line, and 34 per cent (that’s right, 12 of 35) from the free throw .Me. . The next day, Waterloo hit 30 per cent of its shots in the blowout. The only silver lining to be found was forward Mike Stroeder’s 21 points versus UPEI and point guard Mano Watsa being named to the tournament all-star team. Watsa had 24 points and 15 rebounds in

l

the two ga.mes. With the graduation of Sean Van Koughnett, the pressure to replace his contributions falls firmly on this pair of sophomores after satisfying rookie seasons. Fifth-year centre Mark Hopkins will also be key this season. Hopkins scored only 15 points in the two games, while averaging 2 1 minutes of court time. However, Hopkins, last year, got stronger as the season developed.

Prove themselves they did, holding the Yeomen to just one try, while adding three of their own. The first of the three Warrior tries resulted from an excellent effort by centre Mike Rourke. After cutting a run up the field, Rourke literally carried three York defenders over the line with him to count the score. A well run back row play and effective mauling produced the second Waterloo score. J.P. Rosevear was able to slide through a weak spot in the York pack, aided by a determined drive from the Warrior forwards, to score.

Equally impressive was the Waterloo defence, which allowed a lone penalty kick. Scoring tries for the Warriors were prop Mik:e Lippert with two, lock Bill Cole, strum-half Gerrard Lynch, fly-halfJason Winters, centre Mackenzie: Jaims, wing Tim Finlay and full-back Joel Dunlop. Winters added1 three conversions and one penalty goal to the scoring. The win by the varsity Warriors leaves them with a record of I 5-l and in a tie for 5th place. However, because of an OUAA ruling, Waterloo finds themselves dropped to 6th place and thus, relegation to OUAA division two. Looking alhead to next year, the prospects are good for Waterloo rugby. The Warriors will lose a fair number of their starting line up to graduation at the end of this year, but, with the strong crop of first year players who played this season, Warrior coaches aren’t worried. “We’ve got a lot of potential here, and new players show up every year,” commented Pryde. With the inception of the women’s team and an excellent staff of coaches, the rugby machine should return stronger than ever for the 1996 season.

The final Warrior try was counted by graduating lock Sean Rennie. The score was a good final effort from the whole Warrior team and going through several phases in both the forwards and backs before Rennie finally worked the ball over for the try. Warrior fly-half Steve Goodacre converted two tries and added three penalty goals to secure the I5 point margin of victory. Credit for the win must go to the Waterloo defence as much as to it’s offense. The rugby machine put a stop to the York offense on four separate occasions, inside the Warrior five-metre line. “Our guys really dug in. It was awesome,” observed Warrior wing Josh Windsor. Waterloo coach Ian Pryde said, following the game, “It was nice to see them play as a team. The win was long in coming, but it was well deserved.” The junior varsity Warriors staged an impressive wind-up to their own season, handily defeating the Yeomen junior varsity side 49-3. The Warriors put on a scoring clinic, recording 8 unanswered tries before the final whistle blew.

Wayne State was in for a butt-kicking. Starting things off for the Athenas was the 4x 100 medley of Sheryl Sanders, Kara Rice, Doris Ho, and Jennifer Orrange swimming to a first place finish, The second place relay was also from Waterloo with Lee Hornberger leading the way, SO and Melanie Wilson, Ivy Chan, and Sue Jones rounding out the team. The Wat&loo women then went first and second in the 1000 yard freestyle, rookie Jennifer Pells taking first spot and veteran Jenn Beatty a close second. After the relay, Captain Kara Rice grabbed two more firsts in the 200 freestyle and 100 backstroke. Teammate Jenn Orrange finished second in both these races. Rookie sensation Doris Ho followed with three firsts of her own, adding the 100 yard butterfly and 500 yard freestyle to her relay win. Another super rook, Sheryl Sanders finished first in the 200 individual medley and second in the 100 yard breaststroke. Jenn Beatty won the 100 breast and led

the 4x 100 free relay to an easy victory. On the men’s side, the score was much closer, but the Warriors prevailed 105 100 in a squeaker. John Harland led all Warriors, grabbing first in the 200 yard freestyle, the 100 yard backstroke, and helping the 4x 100 yard free relay to first place, with Trevor Denstedt, Rob Rogut, and Chris Palin in tow.

Needless to say, the Warrior Ice Hockey team had an interesting week-end. Last Thursday, Waterloo travefled to St. Mike’s Arena in Toronto to open the 1995-96 regular season against the Ryerson Rams. Jumping out to a 3-l lead after the first, the Warriors retired to the dressing room, ready to add more in the final two frames. Apparently, Ryerson suspected the same thing, and while the “ice resurfacer” did its thing, an evil Ram staff member caused a mechanical failure, and voila. Fried Zamboni. The game was cancelled, and as of press time, no decision has been made as to what to do. The best bet is that when Ryerson comes

Talk about a Bermuda triangle. I wouldn’t recommend driving your new sports car past Columbia Ice Fields while the Warriors work out this season. On Saturday, the Warriors jump-started the bus and headed to the States to tangle with the Colgate Red Raiders.

Ironically, Colgate fielded eighteen players on $24,000 (US) scholarships in their line-up. The Warriors play for free. On Sunday afternoon (which sucks after playing Saturday night), the Warriors suited up against Union College. Union won 9-0, and then, the Warriors came home.

The game ended in a scoreless deadlock. Waterloo faced Brock in their final contest, on Badger territory. By half time, the Warriors had fallen behind 2-O. It was rather symbolic of the season: tough, exciting soccer resulting in the adversary “getting the breaks,” Substitute Nick Ingratta exemplified this belief when he lofted the ball over the Brock keeper only to be denied by the crossbar. The misfortunes proceeded as Brockcapitalizedonapenalty shot. Minutes later Waterloo was awarded a chance from the spot as Ingratta was hacked down in the

Athena Field Hockev: Second in OWIAA by Amy Sarnara special

Adair and Bcrger to Imprint

The Athena field hockey team faced a tough week-end in Toronto last Saturday and Sunday with the second-place ranking in the OWIAA was on the line. The Athenas faced Carleton in their first match-up on Saturday. The “first blood” was drawn in the second minute of play when midfielder Amy Adair took a ball in the jaw the play and was rushed to hospital. The Athenas quickly retaliated with a goal scored by Michelle Lo on a penalty comer. This was the first of an onslaught of goals by Waterloo. The second and third goals

were scored by All-Canadian Rachelle Brohman and Carolyn Stark, respectively. Sara Creighton, team captain, scored her first goal of the year by blating the ball past the Carleton keeper off a big rebound. Bemice Willemse recorded the final tally as she deked the goalie on a brilliant move. Waterloo took the match 4-O. The Athenas arrived Sunday with apprehension and determination written all over their faces. They were up against they York Yoemen, their rivals for second place. A tie against this team just wasn’t good enough; Waterloo wanted the win to clinch second place. York opened the scoring after a scramble around the net and the

Athenas faced an uphill battle. However, it took little time for the Athenas to redeem themselves from their 1-O deficit. Carolyn Stark placed the ball perfectly in the net on a break-away. Knowing that a tie would not gain the Athenas their deserved standing, rookie Dawn Culverson demonstrated u1timate effort as she dove to score a dramatic sliding goal from a nearimpossible angle. Amy Adair later observed, “It was the most beautiful goal I’ve ever seen.” The second half of the game was scoreless, leaving the Athenas with a 2-l win. This gained the Athenas second place in the OWIAA and an automatic bye into the semi-finals of the Ontario Championship next week-end.

he Warrior Volleyball team seems, this year, to have many strikes against them. First, the team has a rookie head coach. Tony Martins is taking this position over from last year’s coach of the year, Ed Price. Martins is a former Warrior setter, and has participated in two national championships. He has also been a member of the provincial volleyball team. Second, and perhaps even more important, is that three of the most instrumental players of last year’s strong offensive team are gone. Shawn Smith, Rene Holt, and Pete Denison are no longer members of the team. A team full of rookies is replacing them. Despite this, Martins does not consider this season to be a rebuilding season. There are six first year players on the team, but among them are some extremely talented players. As well, Matt Reed and Al Schroeder are both returning to solidify the team. In fact, the team is simply hoping to pick up from where it left off last year. Last year’s volleyball season showed the team flip-flopping on and off of the national rankings and efforts to improve defense abilities. The team spent the year focussing on improving their ability to return the serve with strength and control. Last year’s team showedalot ofinconsistency, which seemed uncharacteristic of the team that spent the season at the top of their division, and most of the season as the top team in Ontario. As the 1994- 1995 regular season drew to a close, the team lost the title of best team in Ontario to Toronto. They did avenge this loss

T

Great

in the National Championships where they finished in fifth place, one place ahead of Toronto, The problem of last year’s season was that the team seemed to have the ability to be ranked much higher nationally, t.han they were. This year is looking to develop a solid tearn, without loopholes. The team is focussing on co-operation. Martins is hoping that this focus will lead to a team that is strong in both offensive and defensive tactics. Martins states that “It’s early in the season, but I like what I’m seeing. I th:ink the guys will come together and do the things we need to accomplish some great things.” These great things include top placing in both the division and the province, as well as consistent national ranking. He continues by saying that “we’ve got three starters and a few other players in their Final year with the team. We’re probably the most mature group in the OUAA West and I’m expecting us to play that way.” Arguably, the team was also the most mature in the Western Division last year as well. The Warriors are hosting a tournament, the Warrior Classic, November 3-5, and will have the opportunity to play some extremely talented teams. The Warrior Vol1eybalI team will use this as their chance to size up the competition, and to establish itself a team of national calibre. The regular season officially begins on November 8, against the Windsor Lancers. In last year’s regular season play, Windsor wlas the only team to beat the Warriors. Nevertheless, Martins believes that “if we can stay healthy, we should be as good, or better, than last year’s team at season’s end.”

f you’re like me, you spent the better part of the summer dreaming of powder - snow that is. Last weekend, I went to the Ski Show at the Ex in Toronto and geared myself up for another season of hitting the slopes at max speed. Apparently, I’m not alone. The Ski Club is holding its Organizational Meeting on Monday, November 1, at 5 pm in Fed Hall. They have a great season lined up for skiers and snowboarders alike. The $35 ($30 at the meeting) gets you FREE skiing at Chicopee for the entire season, cheap day trips to Blue Mountain, and Bristol Mountain, (NY), and many others. Members will probably repeat last year’s value-packed trip to Mt. St. Anne and Mont Tremblant, PQ over New Years too. What a great way to welcome 1996! Come to Monday’s meeting if

you want to join this great club. Apparently, there will be extra goodies if you do. You can i&o join anytiltie at the PAC Reception Office Room 2039 during business hours. Check out the club bulletin in lower level PAC for current Ski Club executive contact numbers if you have any questions. See you on the slopes.

his past Saturday evening, the University of Waterloo’s Athletics department held their annual Hall of Fame Dinner to honour several former Warriors and Athenas. inducted into the Hall of Famt: were Dennis McGann, Neil Widmeyer, Maria Da Costa Seto Also honand David Wilson. oured were last year’s AII-Canadians Rachelle Brohman, Sarah Dillubaugh, Gory Delaney, Gord Fawcett, Jason Gregoire, Jeff Miller, Leanne Dietrich and Shawn Smith. McGann, the first inductee on the night, was an outstanding runner for the Warriors cross-country and track and field teams. He helped Waterloo win four consecutive league championships in his career by competing in the 100 and 220 yard races, the sprint relay and the mile relay. He also competed in the long jump, triple jump and high jump. In the 1970 OUAA Championships, McGann won four gold metals. Over his five year career, he set eight Warrior All-Time records, seven of which still stand today. McGann credits much of his success to the great atmosphere the team had those years. “At college in Canada, you sort of commit yourself to your htudit=s and sports is just something you do while you’re here. As a result, we. had a good time and we still won. Now, I’m gettinganaward 23 years later and it’5 great.” Widmeyer helped to build Waterloo’s outstanding basketball, cross country and track and field teams. During his tenure as a coach, he had a winning percentage of 83% and led the track and field teams to IWO OUAA championships and his cross country team to a gold medal. In recognition of his outstanding work as a builder of Waterloo’s athletics programs, Widmeyer became a rnemberof the

honoured Hall of Fame. 4 Maria l3a Costa &to was a former Athena volleyball player during 197 1 and 1975. After a successful career with Waterloo, Seto moved on to coach at Oakville Trafalgar High School. As an outstanding leader on and off t he court, Seto was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Wilson was a member of the Warriors swim team in the 1970’s. During his two years as captain of the team, Wilson held every UW record for freestyle races for the 50 yards to the 1650 yards. In addition, he held records in the 200 and 400 yard individual races and was a member of the record setting teams in three relay events. For his outstanding efforts as an athlete, Wilson was given Waterloo’s highest honour as he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Waterloo’s All-Canadians fiom last season were also honoured at the dinner for their outstanding performances. Rachelle Brohman, a third year Athena field hockey player, helped the team to win a bronze medal in the OWIAA competition last season. This year, Brohman has shown great leadership and helped the team to one of their best performances. Ranked fifth in the country, the Athenas are hoping to become the best in Canada this year. Sarah Dillabaugh. also in her third year of competition, won a silver medal for the Athena track team in the 1500 metre race at the CIAUchampionships. She was also a member of Waterioo’s 4x800 relay team. Cory Delaney was an outstanding member of the Warriors football squad the past five seasons. He was the CIAU’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1994 as he led the country in interceptions. Gory was an OUAA All-Star throughout his career, was Rookie of the Year and was the University of Waterloo’s

erhaps it is rather redundant and downright mean to bash an expansion team for having poor players, but the Toronto Raptors are a team to worry about once the regular season start. GM Isaiah Thomas is way too guardcrazy to be a successful in the NBA. He seems to want to field a team with five Isaiah Thomases out on the floor running around, dribbling, passing, and stealing. Damon Stoudmire, Alvin Robertson, the failed trade for Harold Miner. Never mind Bobby “the Brain” Heenan’s old stable of big men in the WWF could probably outplay the Raptors’ current collection of frontcourtcrap.

Athlete of the Year last season. Cord Fawcett, a teammate of Gory’s throughout his career, was one of the most dedicated athletes to put on a Warrior uniform. After coming back from a devastating injury in his last yeaxof high school, Gord courageously fought back to become a Warrior captain and an All-Canadian in his last season. Brad Harris, also a member of the Warriors football squad, was named an All-Canadian in his last season of piay.Brad was one of the most respected defensive ends in the nation. He was always double or triple-teamed by other teams but still came out on top. Brad led the Warriors in tackles and quarterback sacks throughout his career.. In his fourth year with the cross-county and track and field teams, Jason Gregoire had an excellent season. In 1994, he possessed good speed as member of the 4x800 metre relay team in the OUAA and CIAU competitions. This year, he has lost only once. Pole Vaulter Jeff Miller competed in the 1994 Commonwealth games and was a key member of the Warriors trick and field team last year. Jeff won the gold medal in the pole vault last season at the CIAU Championships, Leanne Dietrich was a member of the Athenas field hockey team for five years and was Waterloo’s Athlete of the Year last season. teanne was an OWIAA AllStar in 1992 and 1994. She was the teams leading scorer last year and the teams Most Valuable Player. Shawn Smith was also Waterloo’s Athlete of the year in 1994. He was captain of the Warriors volleyball team for three years and amember of the All-Canadian team for the past three years. In 1994, Shawn was an All-Star in five interuniversity tournaments and was nominated for the CIAU’s Award for Academic, Athletic and Community Achievement.

Javier Lopez, the Braves catcher, outright won Game 2 for Atlanta in the World Series, His two-run centrefield missile and pick-off of Cleveland’s Manny Ramirez may be the most remembered plays of the series... Braves’ Greg Maddux is the best pitcher we’ll gel to see in our lifetime... How about Mike Malott of the Warriors’ football team? Despite his strong rushing performances this year, one could only speculate on how many. records he would break if his big sixty-plus yard runs weren’t flagged and called back all the time. Malott had a touchdown nullified in the loss to York, and it wasn’t even close to being the first occurrence of bad calls for Mike this year... In the NFL, a lot of people are getting killed in their predictions recently because of the expansion teams Jacksonville, Carolina, and perennial underdog Indianapolis. These three teams have pulled some major upsets. lndy over the ‘Niners. Who would have

Grapes showed a video of all the people Samuelsson has injured over the years, and then put a $100 bounty on his head.

new

attitude

Moser

A

fter returning to the Warriors from his second Canadim Football League training camp this summer. some pcoplc may have cxpuctcd a big attitude from full back Mike Malrjtt. Howcvcr, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Although the fifth-year Warrior has domin;ltd the CIAU in rushing throughout his caret3r at Acadia and now Waterloo, Mike Malott has remained the same. “After coming back from two professional camps, Coach Knight said he was expecting a big attitude. But, 1 think I’ve shocked them because I’ve come back with a admits Malott who was positive attitude,” released for the second consecutive year by the Ottawa Roughriders of the CFL. The move by Ottawa was just another blunder in the continuing saga of the franchise, but it was a great break for the Warriors. “I’m more laid back this year,” says Malott of his attitude change this season, “In past years, I felt a lot of little, trivial things would bother me and I didn’t separate them very well from the classroom and the field. This year, I have.” And, he has with much success. Although he will never admit to it, this is one of the best seasons Mike Malott has ever had with the Warriors. He may not have the numbers he’s had in past years rushing the ball, (he is averaging just under 100 yards a game!) but, he is more involved with the offense this season running, catching and most recently passing the ball.

to a successful

“I’m not having an outstanding season if you compare the numbers to my first year but I’m happy with it. The ultimate goal is that we do well as a team.” In the past month, the Warriors have looked incredibly strong. (forget the York game, that was not the real Warriors squad!) Waterloo was undefeated in the last month until this weekend and are looking forward

post-season

with

the Warriors.

to showing what they can do in the playoffs. For Malott, success this season is doubly important as it is his final year of CIAU action. “I think we have the determination and discipline to make ourselves a championship team. We’ve come back from a lot of adversity and situations where we were behind the eight ball. We’ve come to reaiize as a team that we have the capabilities of being one of the better teams in not only the OUAA, but also the country.” And, you know Malott will work hard at accomplishing this goal of a Vanier Cup with the Warriors this year. He has been through a lot of heartache the past two seasons with the Roughriders and would like nothing better than to show them what a huge mistake they made by cutting him.

of

Badminton

Craig is a third-year Geography student with the Warrior Badminton team. Last weekend at the OUAA West Division competition, Craig had an outstanding individual performance to lead the Warrior team to a second place overall finish. He had a 3 -1 record in the #2 singles position and a 4-l record with partner Jeff Sum in doubles. His victories in two key matches enabled the UW team to clinch their second place finish. Craig’s performance was an inspiration to the rest of the team and great things are expected from him as the season has just started. Ovemll, the team took first place at the West Sectional I tournament hosted by Guelph. UW finished with 36 wins edging out Western by one point to take top honours.

“After my first year, I kind of anticipated I was going to back because I didn’t know what the experience was going to be like. The second time around, I honestly felt like I deserved to make it. I thought I was in a situation where I improved on my skills and what they wanted, I thought I was able to do or had the potential to do.” “1 think what a lot of people don’t know is that in the CFL you have to be very Mented. Some of the most talented athletes in the ClAU don’t make it and that makes you realize what kind of league it really is and how much professionalism there really is.” “1 believe in my heart that I should have made it this year but that’s just my opinion. I also got feedback form other players and coaches that gave me a more positive attitude. And, those arc the lhings you are going to remember. Even if I[ don’t get another tryout or I don’t make it, I have the respect of my friends and other coaches and that means a lot. I can walk away with dignity, knowing I did my best.” And, what else can you expect from the Warriors superstar? Malott has done it all the past three seasons with the Warriors. He was an All-Canadian in t993, an OUAA All-Star twice, he has been among the top in the league in rushing yards, and continues to punish opponents with his aggressive running style. Of course, Malott would like another shot at the CFL, especially now since he is a free agent and will not have to return to the Roughrider Organization. For now, he’ll concentrate on his studies. His present goal is to help the Waterloo Warriors become a championship team- The CFL can wait for him. That is good news for the Warriors football program. With Malott in the backfield, Waterloo has one of the best in the country. Come out and cheer on Mike and the rest of the Warriors as they travel to Cuelph to take on the Gryphons in their last game of the I1 regular season.

Mv Sonic Youth w/ Helium Warehouse, Toronto Tuesday, October 24 by Dave Imprint

Fisher staff

D

iscounting the Lollapalooza show this past summer in Barrie, Tuesday night’s sonic Youth show was the New York noiseniks first Toronto performance in over three years. Sonic Youth concerts have generally always been almost wholly concentrated on the touring album at hand. The current album is Washing Mcrchinv, and while the band did feature it heavily Tuesday night they also played a lot more back catalogue material than customary. Ordinarily, they’ll throw out a couple of bones for the old fans say, an “Expressway to Yr Skull” here or a “White Kross” there -but on Tuesday Sonic Youth played what by their standards is an almost “Greatest Hits” package. Opening with an amazing trio of ‘80’s (dare 1 say it?) classics -

Tar “Teenage Riot, ” “Tom Violence” and “Catholic Block” - the band then moved into some of their more contemporary material, such as “Bull in the Heather,” “Saucer Like,” and the awesome title-track from their new album. But before the show could permutate into anything special, aside from the fact that seeing the band live is an event unto itself, was a pair of factors which took the shine off the performance from this fans perspective. Firstly, the unforgiving Warehouse. This is one of the worst possible venues imaginable. The sightlines are poor, especially given the set-up of the speaker system and a ton of brutally situated support beams throughout the main section of the room. And the acoustics of the room are worse. This is all the more disturbing because Sonic Youth is about sound; they’re not a bunch of highly visual rock stars, the sound is rhe star. More often than not the delicate interlacing of Lee Renaldo and Thurston Moore’s guitars was reduced to sludge. It made you realize how special the Lollapalooza show really was, bec;iuqe if-nothing

ed

else that tour gave them a sound system they deserved. The venue problems lead one

to the second big difficulty of the show, namely some of the fans. Since the sound and sightlines were

I

so poor, one was forced to move toward the front of the stage, which for the most part only happened to be occupied by a lot of kids who clearly had no idea about the band. How else do you explain an utter lack of recognition of “Tom Violence?’ Okay, I can live with that, but what about crowd-surfing to “Washing Machine?” If it was ever a fact that you can’t mosh to the deconstructive middle part of “Washing Machine,” then these bucketheads disproved it. Despite all of this, the show was still a great spectacle. Eventually the sound managed to right itself, and the last forty minutes of the show was an exercise in guitar noise, comprising “The Diamond Sea,” “Schizophrenia,” and “Mote,” the last of which brought out a Sonic excursion near Floyd’s “Saucerful of Secrets.” These were incredible. Openers Helium weren’t expected to be done any favours by the Warehouse either, but they were brilliant. In fact, the bare trio’s sound actually came across reasonably clear. Lead singer and guitarist Mary Timony was as shy as ever, but looked for all thke world a star.

he lights dim as a hooded figure slinks over to the keyboards and belts out creepy pipe organ music, setting the stage for the coming spectacle. No, this isn’t the Phantom of the Opera, it’s The Jim Rose Circus Sideshow taking centre stage. . In the tradition of the circus sideshow, Jim Rosedeliversahighly entertaining collection of human oddities who engage in dangerous and disgusting acts of skill and self-mutilation. A showman to the core, Jim Rose provides a nonstop ride into the writhing underbelly of chow-business in the nineties. Jim Rose - the Mastermind of Madness, the God of Odd, the Duke of Puke, the Earl of Hurl rushes out onto the stage and immediately establishes himself as the mouthpiece of the show. Clad in leather pants and motorcycle boots, Rose jumps right into your senses WNith the first few spine-chilling stunts, Always looking for audience participation, he pulls a woman onto the stage and instructs her to stand on his head while he lays face down in broken glass. Not your standard bar trick. Some of his other stunts include shoving kitchen utensils up his nose, swallowing razor blades, and letting Bebe the Circus Queen throw darts into his back (he was visibly annoyed when

a_t poorly

aimed dart stuck in his arm instead). Soon Rose introduces the audience to The Enigma (enigma. y1. a puzzling thing or person), who runs around eating bugs, hanging things in his eye-sockets, and sticking his head in a shower of sparks until his cigarette lights up. Jim Rose butts in to butt out the cigarette on his own tongue. Smoking can kill you, he says. The puzzling thing about the Enigma is the jigsaw puzzle tattoo covering his whole body, including hislface and butt, “turning ti his brown eve blue.” He was . known as Tie Slug when the v troupe ravaged Waterloo Region a couple of years ago, effectively peiforming the same stunts but without the tattoos. Now he is destined to remain a freak. Rose’s tattooed little monkey grinds the organ andcoLlects the change. What will The Enigma do when the circus train stoDs for the last time? The I-w&drunk excuse only counts for one tattoo, not the full-bodied art on The Enigma. Rose’s stunts and the antics of the Enigma are mere party tricks compared to the feats ofThe Amazing Mr Lifto, The Armenian Rubber Man. and Tom “the Rocket Man” Comet _ After lifting various objects from his many-pierced body parts, the shameless Mr Lift0 strips naked behind a sheet on stage. The light *. . * behind him casts a big shadow puppet on the makeshift screen. “Don’t do it Lifto!” yells

a voice from tl a- UC-..‘.Ma.YY,UY ...freak lifts two steam irons attached to the rod pierced through his penis. Rose then pulls the sheet away, exposing the naked Mr Lifto.

Well, “lawnmower” is a strong word: it was a Flymo, like- a.**deluxe Whip- . . . per-Snipper. Still a neat trick, but not the spectacular finale that should be expected of freaks. The audience can also be considered a member of the group. Rose constantly called for audience participation either to prove au-

1

thenticity of certain questionable props, or simply to make fools of people. The show h.as evolved over the years to reflect changing audiences. Body piercing no longer offends as much as just a few years ago, and tattooing has made it into boardrooms. Years ago, the punk scene mostly stayed underground, hidden from popular culture. In this decade, the punk scene evolved into the grunge scene, becoming a major movement. The Jim Rose Circus reflects this shift in popular tastes by providing vivid andexplicit stunts in quick, uninterrupted bursts. Until recently Jim Rose incorporated general sideshow history and trivia, partly to legitimize his existence, and partly to maintain a sense of tradition in the genre. Now, after their recent tour with Nine Inch Nails, Lollapalooza, and starring in an episode of The XFiles, Jim Rose and his merry band of freaks can claim their niche in the current entertainment industry in their own right. They frequently enjoy the position as the main attraction, rather than the sideshow (the mostly filled Fed Hall attests their popularity). Many people in the crowd at Fed Hall on Saturday night had seen the show before; others have heard the stories and wanted to see for themselves; and some looked as though they could pull a few tricks of their own. Regardless of the reasons for seeing the show, for the price of a movie a night with Jim Rose certainly is a memorable one.

Voila presents Wildlife Fashion Show Fed Hall Tuesday October 24th

talents.” Furthermore, Studio Voila’s commercial base provided a level of professional gloss that unfunded shows cannot afford. From the audience’s perspective, sponsored shows appear more refined because of the monetary base that is available as opposed to unfunded shows that cater mostly to the designers. Businesses that sponsor shows realistically expect to receive credit regardless of their actual input. In this case, the Studio put forth a great deal of work to ensure the show was a success.

uffled feathers abounded at Studio Voila’s “WILD LIFE” fashion show, Tuesday night at Fed Hall. The first annual benefit show was held in support of the World Wildlife Fund for the preservation of Canadian wildlife. Jason Cassis, co-owner of Studio Voila, was pleased at the turnout, “A lot of fabulous people came out to the show for a [charitable ] cause.” According to Frank Siu, also co-owner, Studio Voila expects to raise between $1500 and $2000 for the Wildlife Fund. He believes next year’s show will also benefit the same charity. An anonymous source suggested that the show had little to do with wildlife and was more closely related to alternative lifestyles. “Why give the money to wildlife when the AIDS Foundation would be a more suitable charity?” was. . the posed. - . . question . Desipners did not have a which charity would be choien; instead it was decided exclusively by the employees of Studio Voila. Further criticisms aboundSheIIi Oh’s ed.

Always a delight to see, Lori Latendresse’s Cheshire Hats modelled an assortment of Hallowe’en hats. Favourite hats that graced the runway were: a shower hat complete with a clear shower curtain across the face, a Frankenstein hat with bolts, and a tall cactus secured by earflaps and a tie under the chin (don’t go out in the wind in this one!). Besides designing her own line of creative hats, Lori also sells other designers’ accessories.

ell, it was only the second night of the tour. With the exception of a brief ‘94 stint as Lollapalooza sidestage act, Will Oldham brought his Palace Revue to Canada for the very first time last week, with a Kitchener date at the Volcano sandwiched between the London tour opener and the Toronto Lee’s Palace showcase. With a three-piece backing band Oldham gave his familiar songs a bracing electric treatment that worked well in theory. In theory. In reality, the night was defined by muddy sound and, more often than not, a messy non-cohesion of the band’s individual sounds. Oldham did distinguish himself as an adventurous experimenter, but there was little evidence of his ster-

ling songwriting ability, as the tunes were almost invariably obscured behind the sonic glop. A mustached Oldham took the stage with his bandmates unassumingly and - “launched”? let’s say “inc bed” - into a slow ramble through “Werner’s Last Blues to Blokbuster.” From there the quartet offered a decent overview of the Palace Ouevre, with the set list touching on various singles and albums, and highlighting the current disc Viva Last Hues. Oldham was typically non-talkative throughout, though he was seen bantering with his bandmates between songs a couple times, and his eerie wild-eyed side-of-mouth vocal delivery reminded one of nothing so much as the spooked horses he likes to sing about. Those who were expecting some quiet acoustical readings of Oldham’s work were in for a surprise. Oldham never broke out the acoustic at any point, and every single song was “reinvented” as a loud, clanging, aggro-electric piece.

Sometimes this worked well: “The Mountain” benefitted from the guitar’s ringing refrain, and “Come a Little Dog” and “Work Hard/Play Hard” rocked the house too. But most of the time, it just sounded like under-rehearsed slop. “Gulf Shores,” for instance, is a lovely, complex song (found on a Kramer-produced 45) - when it was played near the end of the set, it was quite literally unrecognizeable. Too often the band disassembled into its individual parts, with the muscular basslines going one way, the guitar leads another, and the vocals another still. The muddyish sound on this night didn’t do the band any favors, either. Oh well. With every tour, Oldham assembles a different Palace Lineup, so perhaps this one is just an unpleasant aberration. (And of course, an Oldham solo show, if it ever happens, would be the one to see.) In the meantime, though, Palace fans here in southern Ontario must look to the records for true signs of Oldham’s genius.

Obvious trends from the show included shiny, black vinyl clothing. Stachia Bon’s mini skirts and short cropped tops, deLeRiUM’s elbow length gloves, Vera Konrath and Jackelyn Laronde’ s slick pants, and Carpe Diem’s ultra shiny biker jacket were all created usinP the black vinvl look. Laces, lots of laces, rather than zippers or buttons graced the elbows, backs and legs of models. Laces are a romantic trend throughout most designers’ work. Carpe Diem even laced the backs of their most elegant evening gowns. Many other designers such as Shelli Oh, Lydia Odhiambo, deLiRiUM, and Kob ion graced the runway with their creations.

Wow,What'sItBeen,AMonth? Soulless Wonders Spirit of the West Lwic Nightclub Thursday October 19th by Brent Winnett special to Imprint

R

eminiscent of a Nike enmore than any dorsement thing else, the band’s arrival is the first indication of the show in store: straight entertainment and no pretension. Hiding behind nothing but their exquisite grasp of musicality and stage presence, Spirit of the West takes your $15 and leaves you asking where to leave the tip. . Packing the Lyric, SOTW drew a crowd with great patience but little enthusiasm for anything but the main. She Stole My Beer and the Philosopher Kings each put on agcwJd show, but much like how the scent of turkey only stokes your appetite for the 5 course Thanksgiving dinner to follow, the opening acts Thursday evening served only to get the sound and light people on their toes for the real show. From the opening onwards, SOTW served up a mixture of classic material that only twice left the audience lagging. As is usual for this band, the show went off without a hitch and yet still seemed appropriately spontaneous. Between the incredible rendition of “That’s Amore” (backed by the lightning mandolin of the multi-purpose Ozzy lookalike) and the molestation of a security guard during “The Crawl,” the band’s enthusiasm never flagged and above all the band appeared to love being there. “That’s Amore” stunned the audience when the drummer, dressed in black sweat

the

pant shorts and an oversized Tshirt, waded his way out from behind the drums and launched into the theme song from Lady and the Tramp in a voice that would put the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to shame. Obviously, the more fun the band is having, the more fun the audience has, and from the virgin fan to the compulsive Spirit of the West junkie, the climate in the Lyric was one of contagious excitement. As anyone brave enough to stem the tide of bodies and hold onto a place at the feet of the band could attest, the press of flesh never eased as 1500 people struggled to be in the thick of the experience Spirit of the West delivers. Showing the influence of this summer’s Roadside Attraction, our bald friend spiced the space between songs with anecdotes and political commentary. Swinging from wakes to Clifford Olson’s taste in poetry, each song was given meaning that maybe could not be

inferred from the lyrics. It served to set the tone of the moment, and the audience responded with energy to the anger and joy and humour of the music bestowed upon them. The key to this was the fact that we, the rapt attendees, could actually understand what was being said to us ~ no offence, Gordie, but you aren’t very clear in your ramblings. “Political” got the crowd singing, while “Save This House” shook the place in anticipation of “Home For a Rest.” Unfamiliar material off their new album was almost always sandwiched between previous works, with one exception. For the first and only time of the evening, the majority of the audience’s ignorance of the new alhum left many wondering when the tempo would pick up again. Thankfully, the wait was only minutes, and from there the band was unstoppable straight through their first encore of “Is This Where I Come In” and “The Crawl.” The second encore was a disappointment, consisting again of unfamiliar material with little in the way of drive. However, no one expected much after almost two hours of some of the best live music available. Almost no one was left disappointed, except for maybe the poor sap who was carried out after having his nose mashed for trying to push past one too many big drunk guys. For the rest of us, including the ten school buses from the University of Guelph, the ringing ears, mangled shoes, bruised ribs, and (for a select few) autographed tickets and drum sticks will serve to remind us of an incredible concert.

nnocence Mission opened the show with female lead singer Karen Petis stealing the spotlight. The mainly acoustic performance, where she altered between guitar and keyboard, was able to mesmerize the crowd with a strong, soft voice and good vocal range. Only their second time in Canada the set was relatively short and performed their known track, “Bright As Yellow” halfway through. Menthol, in support of their self-titled recently released album, took a quite different edge as this three piece showcased their hard fast stuff. Though the drummer countered the still playing filler music, raring to go, the crowd stood steady during the performance despite the enthusiasm of the group.

The group claimed to do something never done befcbre at their concerts when drummer Matt Jamesdropped his sticks for one acoustic tune where he played the tambourine, and for a second one picked up an acoustic guitar to join the band while Martin sung a ballad moving the audience into the mellow. While lead singer Martin Rossitcr started his performance in a suit, he dropped the jacket halfway through the set, unbuttoned his shirt a couple songs from the end, and quickly found a fresh shirt for encores. For the second encore he even broughl out a towel which he promptly threw to the crowd, and when it was replaced with a second towel by a diligent stage hand, it was snatched up from Martin’s shoulders by a patron. Gene had perfected their stage presence with band members all over the place, especially guitarist Steve Mason who constantly jumped to the front of the stage and then drew back. The crowd went away satiated by the performance.

The Phattest Hip-Hop Tour in ‘95 (Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Notorious B.I.G.) h$falo Memurial Auditorium Saturday October 2 1st

JewelleryRep& WatchReDair

by Edward

Richards

Imprint stafT o what exactly is one supposed to do upon receiving word that the ultimate hiphop showcase is making a stop in Buffalo? Get tickets and get there early. Appropriately labelled “The Phattest Hip-Hop Tour in ‘95,” the Buffalo Auditorium hosted the Princes of hip-hop soul, the Queen of R+B, and the reigning King of New York. Right now, you’re asking yourself: ‘*What the hell is this guy talking about? If what he writes is true, then Jodeci, Mary J. Blige. and the Notorious B.I.G. were in Buffalo and I missed it.” Yeah, well, I’ve got news for all you heads out there. If you missed this show, you may have missed the dopest concert of the last decade. Maybe not,‘but for real, this was indisputably the show of the year. Check this out. The house was packed up and the atmosphere was chronic-filled and hype. When Adina Howard opened up with her trademark black leather and whip, I knew it was really on. Presenting herself as somewhat scandalous, her track “Freak Like Me” left the ladies buggin’, and the fellas secretly wishing they could roll home with her that night. Next up, the sounds of “Illtown” hit the stage in the form of Naughty by Nature. Previously uninterested in their work, I must admit their show was so tight that props were definitely due to the crew with much mass appeal. Dropping tracks like “Craziest,” “Clap Your Hands,” and “Feel Me Flow ,” as well as those that put them on the map, the people embraced them with love. With the stage set-up like

With Sean “Puffy” Combs presenting the crew, Craig Mack slurred his way through “Get Down,” “Making Moves with Puff,” and “Flava’ In Ya’ Ear.” Real crisp.

Then, with the image of thugsturned-poets, Junior M.A.F.I.A., “the house that Biggie Smalls built,” gave the fans a dose of their “Player’ s An them,” among some other pieces of their lyrical terror. The next performer would be the King himself. With the kind of size and presence to make Heavy D. look like Grant Hill, the big man took control of the show. Rugged A good draw and definitely notorious, he stimulated the crowd with his hustler style and mack daddy flow. Although he’s risen from project playgrounds to platinum discs in a matter of months, he emphasized the mentality that is quintessential Biggie Smalls throwing cash into the audience and bragging about the powers of cream. Fat, I mean phat as ever, he did what he had to do to keep the potentially hostile New York crowd entertained. Obviously not an easy task. He pulled it off with the ease of a master. After a little break in order to set up the props, the curtain lifted once more to reveal a staircase and pillars - similar to the set of a video of a certain female known as Mary J. Blige. From that point on, the key word was DAMN! I’m talking about fireworks, I’m talking about flames, I’m talking pure mesmerization. Rising from the bottom of the set in a royal palace chair, Mary J. proved to be the true queen of R+B. Untouchable. With a voice as beautiful as the Andes Mountains, she took the audience somewhere else -musical escapism at its best. Six dancers, three males and three females, provided the support for her

act. Easily the best choreographed dancers I’ve seen in my existence, they were just, well, just dope. Style and elegance were hers as she performed a spectrum of hits from “Real Love,” to “Mary’s Joint,” “Be Happy” and “I’m Going Down.” The freshest piece was “Reminisce.” It brought everyone

hardest roughneck in the place, and heartstrings were being pulled like hair from a base-head with no candy. Her show was fresh like a hand-picked apple and it justified, without a doubt, the crown that she sports as an R+B innovator. Mad respect due. When it comes to Jodeci, I get kind of emotional. I don’t care what people say about R+B lovers being soft. Just like L.L. Cool J, I’m not afraid of love. Jodeci epitomizes what a hip-hop influenced, R+B, group should be, and they do it like no one else can even hope to. There is not another group of R+B musicians who can represent the image of st,yle and elegance they can. Who e:lse can come out with leather and such, telling the girls how much they need to be freaked, and then turn around and pull out a red piano, and display the musical skills of David Foster? Who else can make a lady throw her panties on the stage while making a man feel like he’s inadequate to satisfy the girl he came with? Jodeci creates an aura that appeals to those who appreciate what it means to be smooth. Guys want to be them. Girls want to be with them. The word for their performance in Buffalo was sucrlful. Kicking tracks from albums one through three, they came tight. Songs like “Stay,” and “Come and Talk To ME:” were reminders of who they used to be. “Cry For You,” “Lately” and “Feenin’ ” made people just want to grip up a honey and just love them down, na’ mean? Their new joints were full of funk. It wasn’t hard to get lost in the essence of songs like “Fun 2 Night” and “Pump Et Back.” Anyone at the show who wasn’t nodding their head was either a mannequin or a quadraplegic. The set was fashioned after a behind-the-club, construction-sitetype deal, and the big-screen television interludes added flavour one could only expect from Jodeci. Boys II Men appeal to little girls and elevator music fans. Jodeci plays for those who see beauty in sex and desire spiceid with eroticism. Be-

No Secrets Wound Here

Open

Secrets Munru 294 pages, $28.99 cloth by Alice

by Heather Calder Imprint staff

A

lice Munro is definitely known as Canada’s premiere short fiction writer, rivalling even Mavis Gallant. In her eighth work, another coliection of short stories, Munro continues to weave the lives of ordinary people and common places into something surprising and true.

Munro’s style is not for everyone; she takes a place - here Carstairs, Ontario - and uses it as the backdrop for her characters. It is a way of showing us the extraordinary. If you grew up in a smallish town, you might feel at home in Munro’s world. If you did not, you might at least find her characters accessible, for some are just odd enough to be found anywhere. Open Secrels contains eight of Munro’ s new stories. Munro varies from her norm a bit, playing with the letter as a storytelling instrument. The first story, “Carried Away,” consists of letters between an injured soldier and a librarian he remembers. In a bizarre turn on the love letter, the two develop a relationship of hope; however, Munro turns away from the letters and works with the librarian’s fodder, books. What we read is who we are, Munro posits. This story is not short, by any means, but like the others it is engaging. “The Albanian Virgin,” moves away from Carstairs to explore storytelling and friendship, the relationship between the printed word and the spoken word, how both affect human relationships, and more. That is the major attraction of Munro’s work

- if you choose not to explore the major themes, you can simply be entertained by the story. Likewise, if you choose to explore the strands of theme and metaphor, you will find depth and texture. One of the most interesting stories is called “Vandals.” For some unknown reason, a young woman, newly converted to Christianity, brutally vandalizes the house of her former neighbour. The reason does not remain unknown for long, but in the meantime we learn about the neighbours and their bizarre relationship. In Open

Secrets,

Munro

T

his is the type of book that you have to stick with in order to get to the good parts. The first forty pages or so are filled with introducing all the characters - and there are a lot of them and not much development of the plot. Once that is out of the way the book moves along at a fairly steady pace. The first thing I want to say about this novel by Canadian author William Deverell, is that he has way too many characters with too many nickr)ames. It was difficult to keep everyone straight and it was just as equally difficult to keep

track of who slept with who, although this became considerable easier once all the characters were established. The second thing I would like to mention is that I really wanted to like this book. I tried, but there were just to many things that could have been so much better. The premise was a good one - a bunch of criminal lawyers in Vancouver are being murdered and a number of them are from the same firm, all of whom are less than perfect citizens, whether it be ties to the mob, drugs, or illicit sex. Anyway, Deverell throws in a ton of suspects, and a lot of twists to keep the reader guessing who did it. The sad part is that the ending is disappointing. The person who is responsible is no one you would even think of. Usually this is a good point, but there were absolutely no clues that this person was

the murderer (however their accomplice was a main suspect). I felt cheated that Deverell kept this person as a nothing character who is conveniently the murderer. Another thing that bothered me was the book within a book. Srian, one of the main characters , is writing a book that mirrors the story going on. While this is somewhat helpful in summing up various parts of the real story, it distracts you from what is going on. Maybe I didn’t like this because I thought that Brian was one of the scummiest characters in the book, and this book is filled with a lot of scummy people. Kill All the Lawyers could have been a lot better if Deverell hadn’t copped out on the murder. It was as if he was tired of writing, and didn’t want to look over his own facts, so hejust decided, ‘oh why don’t Ijust make this guy the kill&.’ -

When Donkie hit the stands, the album gradually brought a whole new generation to the punk scene, and thre unexpected mass appeal was something that had to be dealt with by this very young band, which has been extensively touring and is set to appear at Maple Leaf Gardens this past Wednes‘day. The necessity ‘to make the transition from an independent record label, Lookout, to the bigger record companies and being a main act at the commemorative Woodstock has brought some distinguishable polish to this new recording as opposed to the earlier works.

The only band the gandharvas even remotely resemble are the Rheostatics, not so much in sound (although there are similarities in vocals and production) but in style; they’re strange and they don’t care who hears them. (This is the attitude, by the way, that have made both bands two of the best live acts in Canada.} ‘The Very Thing,” for example, marks an instrumental solo with thirty seconds of bizarre vocalizations. The lyrics and the music seldom agree; a line Iike “Drool’s” “It condensed on the window” takes thirty seconds to be spit out in its entirety.

Smoking Popes Born TO Quit Capitol/EM1 by Chris Imprint

Aldworth staff

In the world of British rock, it seems like everyone is trying to be the next Smiths. These lofty heights that so many aspire to, but few achieve, supply the world with a never ending supply of Smiths wannabees. Imagine my surprise when it is not a U.K. band but one from the Southern tip of Lake Michigan that finally succeeds in this respect. Sirnply put, Chicago Illinois’ Smoking Popes are one of the best bands to come out of that never ending collective of Morrissey soundalikes. The twist on it all is that lead singer Josh Caterer is backed by a crack groupofmusicians that enjoy playing with a punk bent. A sort of Morrissey meets the Ramones if you will. The Smoking Popes deep bow at the back catalogue of Morrissey and Co., which, while hardly original in itself does have flares of brilliance that are worth noting. The energy level is kept consistently high and although the vocals are of the moping around variety, the music rarely leads the listener astray. Imagine hearing “Reel Around The Fountain” played at twice

Records

by Andrew Henderson Imprint staff This is singer/songwriter Francis Dunnery’s second solo release. His first offering, Fearless, was very well received and won a great deal of praise. His style is a unique blend of pop and folk, with overtones and derivations of the alternative sound of “Tall Blonde Helicopter” the early 90’s. foHows too many conventional musical patterns to receive a glowing review. However, as is usually the case for me, I can find many redeeming qualities in the lyrics and wit of Dunnery. The first three songs grab your attention, making you feel as if Dunnery is sharing a joke with you. In “Too Much Saturn” he satirizes himself and his follies. 7 always believed that if I never missed a yoga class...1 could make myself a great spirit man/ But I was only doing yoga cos 1fancied the teacher.” It is this intimacy that kept me listening.

ARTS the speed and you get the point. Both “Rubella” and “Mrs. You And Me” are infectiously uptempo numbers full of pop appeal. “My Lucky Day” mopes around at just the right speed but then the listener is hit smack dab in the forehead with the powerfully catchy drive of “Need You Around.” Damn, try as I might, I just can’t get it out of my head! Fine song but, perhaps, almost too catchy. Although sounding quite Smiths like, I found myself suppressing the urge to yell out “one, two, three” before each song and the driving, generally punky treatment they receive. A few duds do exist like the snoozefest “One The Shoulder,” but for the most part there is enough to keep you entertained or at least from dozing off. Smoking Popes may lack the punch of a guitarist like Johnny Marr, but they make up for it in well crafted songs and hummable melodies that stay lodged in your brain long after the power switch is depressed. Smoking Popes capture the vision of the Smiths quite nicely and their amped up take on it provides a pleasurable listen. Born TO Quit is an enjoyable romp through a somewhat fresh new sound. Thankfully confining itselfto only twenty eight minutes (as the general sound of the album begins to wear on the listener near the end), Born TO Quit is a fine slice of pop. One only wonders about the sustainability of this sound for titure albums.

guitarist, having played on Robert Plant’s “Fate of Nations” album and tour, “Tall Blonde Helicopter” disappoints musically. I wilI give Dunnery credit for being one of those ““I can play everything” guys, a la Lenny Kravitz, but he should concentrate on his main musical interest, the guitar, as well as his excellent lyric writing abilities. “Tall Blonde Helicopter”% dearth of musical creativity is showcased in songs such as “Rain or Shine,” “In My Dreams,” and “Grateful and Thankful,” an inane, “lay down your arms and we’ll walk together,” live in harmony song. Not that there’s anything wrong with that idea, but it has been done to death. In some of the songs, Dunnery even loses his touch with lyrics. “Because I Can” and “I Don’t Want to Be Alternative” qualify as nothing more than filler material. Highlights of this album include a decent cover of Cat Stevens’ “Father and Son,” inside story songs “The Johnny Podell Song” and “I Believe 1 Can Change My World,” and the soothing melodies of “Sunshine” and Only New York Going On.” The latter song’s sincere loneliness and sense of loss make it the most memorable song on the album. Lyrics like “ I try to picture my sweet little girI/ but there’s only New York”

Alison Moyet singks Columbia by Chris Imprint

Aldworth st&

Alison Moyet has offered up little material of any worth since the disbanding of the Vince Clarke synth creation Yazoo. In possession of a strong bluesy voice, Moyet has always exuded oodles of potential. It is unfortunate, then, that on her solo ventures Moyet’s voice has been wasted on inferior material. Now, with numerous solo albums under her belt and a few catchy singles of note, out comes the career spanning retrospective. Proceeding chronologically from her days with Yazoo right up to her latest solo album, this collection is a testament to what could have been. The simple fact remains that the Yazoo songs are the far superior material and solo

I am slamming this or praising it, wonder no more. I , as half-assed as this is, am doing both. “Tall Blonde Helicopter” deserves mention, and is worthy of mild praise. But inconsistency is as inconsistency does.

Unless you want to take a gamble on this, wait until someone gives it to you as a gift 0~ until it goes on sale.

tries like “Is This Love” and “All Cried Out” only weigh down the collection. Other songs like “Love Resurrection” and “It Won’t Be Long” are great yet still pale in comparison to the included classics like “Nobody’s Diary,” “Winter Kills” and “Only You”. The four previously unreleased songs, quietly slipped in, are gkeat for the completist but do little for the casual fan looking to pick up a greatest hits. With the exception of “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” other lost gerns like the loungy “That Ole Devil Called Love”and the soulful evening ending “Love Letters” are best left uncovered. That a song like “Ordinary Girl,” which is done so beautifully, could be found beside a hideous number like “Weak In The Presence Of Beauty” only stresses the unevenness of Moyet’s solo work. She either comes up with a successful piece or a big dud, there is no middle ground. Much like her career, the selections onSingleS are hit and miss as well. While you could criticize this collection for needing more Yazoo material to even out the quality, it is difficult to do so without overshadowing the Moyet solo material. Besides you can always go out and pick up You And Me Both and Upstairs At Eric j: to complete your own comprehensive Yazoo collection. In fact, even Moyet realizes the strength of her earlier work as we find her sadly trying to relive her past with the resurrected “Ode To Boy 11.” Not a pretty sight. Undoubtedly, MLoyet will continue to soldier on and a select few will continue to scoop her solo stuff. The curious will find Singks an adequate place to start but for most this collection can be easily swept under the carpet and forgotten about.

by Dewey Oxburger Imprint staff Wow. Peter Frampton is still alive. Many of you probably remember such Frampton classics as “Show Me the Way,““Baby I Law Your Ways,” and the opus to 70s guitar technology: “Do You Feel Like We Do?” Frampton never managed to sell albums in any quantity until he released Frampton Comes A/ivc, which was one of the best-selling albums of the I Y7Os. He also hasn’t sold many albums since, failing to break topten. Obviously hoping for lightning to strike twice, Frampton has released another live album, even blatantly cloning the name of his one. original success, although he resists the temptation to put one of those older songs on in a blatant attempt to cash in on past glories. I recognized most of the songs on Ccrrzres Aliw Ii from his latest, self-titled reIease. I think I was the only person in Canada to buy it. The songs were Iacklustre, lackadaisical, and just plain lacking. Despite this, I listened to Conres Alive II with an open mind and great hopes. I wasn’t entirely let down. First ofall, ifyou already have Frampton’s first live effort, and want to buy more, this album is definitely next on your list.

In the 1990s he manages again to sound better live than he did in his studio efforts. Standout songs include “Day in the Sun,” and “You” - both sounding infin i t+ better than their studio versions. The best song on the album, however, is a cuver Tim Hardin’s 1960s classic “Hang on to a Dream.” I can’t say definitively how Frampton’s guitar style has changed, but I can offer three observations. First, in the 70s Frampton pioneered the use of many new technologies. In the 90s he avoids them. He probably could use them still. Second, I can’t explain, but all of his songs, fast of slow, all sound like they’re being played at the same speed. Frampton ptay fast solos for slow songs and slow solos for fast songs. Finally, many of Frampton’s guitar riffs now sound like cheesy Eric Clapton in a @am-rock band. Many others sound exquisitely like Clapton solos from the 24 ?V&h!s albums. While Frampton doesn’t use Clapton’s patented Widow Tone, he does tend to hold a lot of notes for bars on end. All this leads me to believe, maybe Frampton’s career can be saved the way Clapton’s was. All he needs to do is perform the encore at a Prince’s Trust Concert, have a new generation discover the music he once performed, and gain the artistic freedom to pursue whatever turns him on, rather than be beholden to the vague machinations of- record labels.

Chavez Penlagram Matador by Ohad Imprint

Ring E. E Records

Lederer staff

Out of New York’s indie rock scene comes a supergroup for the Nineties -- Chavez. Born of Big Apple local bands Live Skull, Bullet Lavolta, and W idcr, Chavez has been a definite buzz band on the Big Apple scene. Signed to the “very cool” Matador label (The New Yorker’s description, not mine), Chavez are indie, they’re heavy, and stirring the waters, with mentions and articles in a whole slew of publications. That said, I have no problem admitting that I’ve never heard of Live Skull, Bullet Lavolta, Wider, or even Chavez themselves until I picked up their latest release. I do know that Penhzgmm Ring, a fivesong E.P. put out this year, is absolutely great. It’s been so long since sounding like Nirvana could be considered a cool thing. This album seems to take many of the better aspects of what Nirvana wanted to be and makes it a whole package. Better aspects, you say knowingly.

Ben Folds Five Ben Folds Five Passenger

What

better aspects? Chavez has a sound that is, in a way, reminiscent of In Utero. Raw, screeching guitars, the kind that make your parents leave the room. Gravel vocals, rough and back in the mix. That’s my description. The Alternative Press describes Chavez’s debut full-length album Gone Giimmet-ing as having elements of “...rock solipsism, post-punk textures and almost Afbini-esque guitar...” The Village Voice is the topper, writing that “Chavez continuc[s] to explore the simultaneously arctic and tropical landscapes of avantexperimental postrockpunk guitar.. .” Well, I didn’t bother looking all those words up, but I think they mean the band rocks. Needless to say, the band isn’t a Nirvana copycat. There are no “Scentless Apprentice” type tracks on this, nothing intentionally offensive to the ears. Furthermore, in true Matador/Pavement style, the slacker attitude does rear its head occasionally in the vocals although the guitars are rarely quiet, keeping the energy level is high. Picking a highlight, the song “Hack The Sides Away” is great, especially the vocals by singer/guiFrom the very instant this album starts, to the moment it ends, the album sounds neither new or original, but rather like an old ’70s Elton John retread. Not that this

by Justin Mathews special to Imprint For those who have never heard of Mr. Bungfe, they are commonly referred to as Mike Patton’s other band. Yes, the lead singer ofFaith NO More is a part of this band, but that’s where the similarities end. The album begins with a mob of voices chanting about the high school world, over a musical background that consists of loud pounding drums and banging on a bass and guitar. For the most part, the music in “Everyone I Went to High School With is Dead” is simply chaotic. Having now destroyed any notion in a new listener’s mind that this is another Faith No More, the album moves on with some interesting musical ideas. “Chemical Marriage” brings together a carnival-esque organ

tarist Matt Sweeney as he repeats, over and over again, the words “coughing it up for the man” and I could pick out, in the mix, Sweeney asking “can’t we just pretend?” The best thing about listening to this record, thiough, is the fact that it indicates the thriving existence of a music scene completely separate from what is in. our sphere of consciousness. Being Canadians, we jump on and all over the Hamilton scene, the Halifax scene, the Vancouver bands. Chavez is proof positive of a band emerging out of another scene, and who knows, maybe New York will be the next: centre of the indie rock universe. Then again, maybe New York won’t. Either way, Chavez is worth checking out.

kind of music is necessarily bacl, it’s just that the world can only take so many piano-playing rock’n

rollers. Worse stil I is that songs like “Julianne” tease you with fifteen seconds of bass and drums and the teensiest bit of feedback, and for a fleeting moment, you wonder if you’ve misjudged the band. Then the piano kicks in. Despite Folds’ musical style, the songwriting is actually pretty strong. Folds’ clear vocals work nicely with his simple melodies, and the band has worked out some nice harmonies throughout the album. And there’s no denying that Folds is an excellent pianist. The lyrics themselves are straightforward and often humerous, offering a look at the life of the average shmoe (of special note is “Uncle Walter,” about being left alone in the room with a friends’ ageing uncle.) I wouldn’t go out of my way to get this album, but I know who I’d pick for the next EIton John tribute.

with a fast jazz-style drumming. Accompanied by vocal howling, this a real treat for anyone who likes things that are twisted just enough to be both absurd and exciting at the same time. This twisted-jazz continues in the next few songs, interspersed with seemingly random breaks from jazz to hard-core thrash and back again. In “Desert Search for Techno Allah” the jazz thrash concoction is given a dance beat and lead by a cheesy techno riff that sounds like it could have come straight out of Mom-d Kombat. It’s hard to decide if the band if mocking the techno/industrial scene or embracing it. Of course, the whole album leaves the listener questioning what was serious and what was sarcasm. The bizarre combinations of different musical styles continues in “The Bends.” This song seems to be the high point or focus of the album. It is a piece done in ten movements. It moves from ambient background music to swing jazz. From there things just get

strange. Noisy samples and electronic sound ef’fects that one would expect from Nqqztiviand, Bdo, or ~‘Vurse K&h Wound. blend withmore dark ambient sounds and guitars. A voice whispers, occasionally, “the bends.” As eclectic and interesting as this album is, ir: is not the only thing that makes it worth buying. Something must be said of the artwork in the booklet. At first glance they just appear to be photographs and drawings that fill in the background for the lyrics, but upon closer examination. some dark and twisted images can be found: a yearbook page with all the eye’s crossed out with blood spilt on one comer, a ritualistic pagan-looking ceremony, and an eyeball spewing forth a stream of skulls adorn the booklet. AI1 in all, this is a great album for people who like their music a little on the bizarre side. It’s also good for getting rid of those pesky classic rock fans. Who but Mr. Bungle can combine jazz, thrash, ambient and techno into one CD?

by Natalie Gillis Imprint staff Hailing from Chapel Hill, the latest hotbed of musical talent, and touted as having a new, original sound, the Ben Folds Five certainly create a lot of expectations for their listeners. What a shame they don’t live up to them. The Ben Folds Five (actually a trio) feature bass, drums, and (this is their selling point) a grand piano. And they play rock and roll. Yep, Ben rocks out on his piano, and writes and sings his own songs to boot. Something I’d never beard of before. Until I’d heard of Elton John. And Billy Joel, too.
