Council

The Campus Reform Group (CRG) had the first real test of its mettle in the Students’ Council meeting last Sunday. This w’as the first meeting for the group since the Jan. 6 meeting failed to achieve quorum. And the free chevron supporters /et the world know what the9 think of the CRG. The two groups voted against each other on all matters except those concernicg action on the fee hike. When the CRG niotions on the agenda finally came *up for discussion after three hours of minutes and reports, the dree che’vron supporters got up and walked out, thus breaking quorum.

Those who have never been to Council meetings can never quite believe what they see when they

chevron supporters on Council continue to object to Orth’s presence. It was pointed out that it is not within Council’s power to force a member to resign. Then, with little debate the CRG put the motion ’ to question, forcing an immediate vote. Orth received overwhelming support. from council when the _ vote came. Another Hannant motion called for a reinstatement of the free chevron as the official student newspaper, which would, he s&d, . include the positions of News come from the following cateEditor and Production Manager gories: and restore the newspaper budget a) all students from whom fees for the paper are collected, 1877 retroactive to Sept. 24’ when the b) all students, 720 paper was closed. c) faculty and non-academic This occurred after Council had , staff of UW, 406 accepted the results of the referd) anyone from K-W communQ endum which went strongly ity,. 79 ,against reinstatement.

“all the news that fits!‘. Henry Hess came up to visit me Wednesday night, to say that he did not use the word “attack”, as reported in last week’s issue, when suggesting why each article should be signed. If that is the case, Henry, I apologize. You told me that things like that were beginning to upset you, which I can understand. But I’m starting to get a little upset, too, about a small group of people on campus who offer no constructive criticism but feel that they must make derogatory comments, no matter how small, about a paper put out, invariably, single-handedly, whose only purpose is to try and inform the campus of what’s happening, without getting into the heavy weather of the Bullseye or the free chevron. Now that the Council has acknowledgement of student support through the referendum, hopefully they will undertike to amend the By-laws to cover all the possibilities, so that we can get back to having one “student” newspaper on campus..rBut, at the same time, Council, let’s for once think of the other.guy: don’t set up the By-laws so that your position is over-balanced, just because you feel you have student subport. The staff of the Chevron will always be more involved with the paper than Council, so let’s also think a little bit of them when you do your word juggling. - r.b. At 4:30 in the morning, I decided to go only eight pages, with the result that some articles we had planned to include were left out.

dear editor; I read with interest the notice you had in last week’s letter section. Indeed, when I sent you the letter with the pseudonym, I intended to insult nobody. What I did intend, however, was to give my impression of the students’ Council meeting, about which I was writing. The pseudonym is simply how the classic Dr. FuManchu might say “Chicken stew’:,.

To the editor; The “broad masses of the people” have made their wishes known and thus, the final curtain may soon be drawn on the Peking Opera downstairs in the Campus Centre. The whole chevron fiasco has dealt a rude awakening to many of us in the democratic Left. It. has shown us., that Totalitarianism ideology is Totalitarianism ideology whether it be Left-wing or Right-wing should not have any bearing on its acceptability. The AlAs claim to speak for “the broad masses of the people” is highly reminiscent of Hitler’s claim of being the embodiment of the will of the German “Volk”. The Nazis denounced all who opposed them as being part of a JewishCommunist conspiracy; similarly, anyone who disagrees with the AIA positions is seen as a “fascist” Of some sort. The fundamental totalitarianism ideology is the same; the movement claims to have a monopoly on the truth. The AIA mouths platitudes upholding democratic institutions and rights, and denouncing “elitism”; in reality, it subscribes to the Leninist notion of “vanguardism”, which states that the masses must be led, for their own good, by a disciplined, revolutionary elite! That this collection of rabid fanatics should be allowed to continue to maintain control of a paper claiming to represent the students of UW (and the free chevron is appearing more and more like the PCDN with each issue) and wield the influence that it has must be- considered intolerable. ) In light of all this, the appearance Reform of the so-called Campus Group would seem to be a heartening development. But why the mad scramble to repudiate Shane Roberts? Most of the organizers of the CRG were closely tied to the Roberts administration, and they should not be ashamed of it. To be sure, Roberts had certain deficiencies as a leader, but he stood for reason and pragmatic reform, which are the same things the Campus Reform Group wishes to promote. This manoeuvering can only damage the group’s creditability. The recall petition should not be seen as a true indication of student opinion; with enough hard-sell and arm-twisting, it is possible to get

2200 signatures for anything. Rather, the referendum should be seen as ample proof that the vast majority of students prefer the “bureau: dratic hacks” to that motley collection of neo-stalinist buffoons which has, despite slogans and catch-phrases to the contrary, nothing but contempt for the students’ democratic Michael Helfinger

Loaded

question?

Mr. Editor; Was the all-important question, number seven slanted? That’s what the free chevron has been saying. .On the referendum ballot question sqven looked like this: 7.’ Should the CHEVRON be reinstated as it was September 24; with Neil Docherty as Production Manager and Henry Hess as News Editor (both salaried positions); and back-pay be given to these individuals for the period when the CHEVRON was not publishing; and outstanding bills of the ‘free chevron’ be paid by the Federation of Stud&ts? Ye4 1 No( 1 The free chevron has argued that their demand was “reinstate! inGestigate! ” This question was criticised for not including an investigation. Some members of the free chevron staff have also said that back-pay and outstanding bills were not really an issue and should not have been included, or included in a separate .question. Late in the Fall term, a motion was brought to the floor of Students’ Council, not by any of the free chevron supporters, but by John Long, a Math rep on council. The motion called for the re-hiring of Docherty and Hess, presumably without back pay because that was not included in the motion. Never did the free chevron supporters bring a motion to council, except for one to recind the motion closing the paper, which specified exactly what they wanted. What they did do, however, is argue against the Long motion because it did not represent a full return to the situation before the closing of the paper. Docherty and Hannant, the editor of the free chevron said at that meeting that they wanted a recognition by the Federation that the paper’s closing was undemocratic. They opposed the Long motion because that was not included. Other occasions when the topic of reinstatement was discussed saw staff of the paper insist that re-hiring was not enough. Full reinstatement, including back pay had to be offered. Before the referendum question was written, the free chevron was asked through the two lawyers involved how it wanted the question worded. Their reply was ‘that the referendum would be opposed by them period, and that they would not cooperate with the Federation in any way. The question of investigation perhaps would have been included ‘on the referendum ballot. But the free chevron has made it clear on many occasions that reinstatement had to

precede investigation. The Federation has attempted to three different investigations get on the road, but each one has been opposed by the free chevron. The first was a CUP commission of inquiry including a professional journalist, a staff member of a regional student, paper and a member of the CUP Executive. Docherty turned this down flat on Sept. 26 calling CUP “a bunch of Trots”. (Sept. 26, to Doug Thompson) The second, The Chevron Investigation Task Force, brought about a boycott by the free chevron. That fo%rce’s membership was entirely students except for one professional journalist. The third, involving lawyers, journalists as well as students was protested because it was .not entirely SWdent in membership. Obviously the question of reinstatement ha-d to be settled before the free chevron would consider investigation, so why put it on the ballot? If the question on reinstatement had passed, the investigation could have been set up immediately..ln the absence of that, why bother to investigate- at all? The third, and perhaps most important point is that even if one accepts the premise that the question contained an ‘implicit bias, it did clearly represent the free chevron’s stated wish for ‘reinstatement -as it was Sept. 24’. Any supporter of the free chevron could have marked an X in the YES column. In fact only 224 did SO as opposed to 2276 who marked in NO. That huge margin would not likely have been turned back by a question not including back-pay or even re-hiring. A few voters may have been influenced by this hypothetical bias but to believe that 2,276 students weren’t clever enough to recognise this as the free chevron’s demand certainly represents a lack of faith in the student body at the miniDouglas Thompson

Independance

for paper

The past months of the Chevron affair have affected all ranks of people at UW - both pro and con, leftist and moderate, scientist, engineer and humanist. Yet all the articles written, all the hasty words spoken, have apparently neglected the central source of the Chevron problem; control by the Student Federation. Consider the situation, for a moment, in which’ the Chevron is constituted solely by those supporting Council positions. Add to this the long-standing tradition of the Chevron to not divide -editorial content from reporting of facts. Add a little pressure from the Student Council in the form of, say, salary raises for an editor who agrees with the actions of the council and a pay cut for a managing editor who fails to kowtow to the powers-that-be. Stir well and simmer a while. Result: a paper that prints propaganda, an insidious propaganda that is hard to recognize because it is well mixed in all the newsarticles. Is this what the students *want? Hardly. Consider then the situation rn which the Chevron is run solely by opposition parties - whether Communist, Fascist or a little of both is irrelevant. Add the same tradition of mixing editorial content with reporting and mix in the type of pressure that can come only from the noisy rhetoric of a group who, rightly or wrongly, feel themselves maltreated. Result: a paper that prints all the propaganda that’s not fit to ‘read. Is this what the students want? Hardly. What ties the two situations together? Council funding and operation! By the well known principle that “he who pays the piper may call the tunes” any Council will have some control over its brainchil’d. But simply because Council does have control of the paper and simply because the paper is so lavishly funded that no other privately run journal may compete with it for student attention, makes it a target for radical opposition groups. Under Council control, regardless of the “safeguards”, the best newspaper that can be hoped for is one in a state of dynamic equilibrium with neither one group nor the other gaining full control and with the editors frequently fired. The solution? Council must relin-

quish all but nominal control of the Chevron. The present office space for the Chevron, Free (?) Chevron etc. could be simply left open. Any group that desired to put out a campus publication could but without Council funding. If the group could generate its own money either through sales or advertising or contributions they could function. This would eventually mean that any paper started would actually have to cater to the needs and desires of its audience in order to be sold profitably. Very quickly the students would get what they wanted to read. Regular Honours

Dear Editor: The Campus Reform Group believes that apathy is not a necessary condition of student life. We feel that with the problems besetting students - cutbacks and the attendant decline in the quality of education is an example - we cannot afford to have a Federation council that drifts aimlessly. We feel that the time has come for a re-assessment of the role of Students’ Council. Council should move towards: ” 1) an opening up of communications between Council and Students, 2) a re-orientation away from. external affairs towards providing more direct services to the students, and 3) co-operation with the local K-W community to solve our common problems. The Council has to stop telling the students what to do and start listening to them. The Council should ensure that students know what they are doing and should strive to find out what students think of Council’s plans. This could be done by appointing a person to co-ordinate communications with the students, perhaps using surveys and even referenda. We of the Campus Reform Group that the Federation also believe should give a lot more serious consideration to the way in which it spends our money. The present Council appears to have no firm policy as to where and how it spends our money. In the election on Feb. 2 we are supporting Doug Thompson for Federation of Students President on a platform which includes the above points. Our main emphasis is on responsible student government and we believe that Thompson can carry out a responsible, responsive and active policy oriented towards the students of uw.

so-called “pun”, we are certainly no1 humorless. We consider it. an insult that the front page photo and cutline in the Jan. 7 “Real” Chevron should appear in a university student newspaper. If the “Real” Chevron considers itself one of those degenerate rotten papers that practise vulgar and unscrupulous journalism, it would noi be worthy of our protest, and our request for a public apology would be quite taken out of place. Therefore, ,if the “Real” Chevron can be taken as such, an apology certainly would not be necessary. But if that is not the case, we’deem it necessary that our demand be met. We believe your squeaking .explanation is not good enough.

Star Trek was one of the toprated shows during its entire run on T.V. ; there is talk now, as therg:. has been for the last couple of years, of making a full-length mdvie of the science-fiction series; there are Star Trek comic books; there is a regular Saturday morning cartoon show; and the entire adventure collection has been put into paperback form, as “Logs”. But what has to be the low point in the Star Trek history occurs on February 2, when the 15th. annual FASS show opens for another run (from the critics). The theme for this year’s FASS (Faculty, Administration, Staff, and Students) is, of course, that up-to-now popular series. Heather Nyland, a five-year veteran of the satirical revue of UW life, said, “The cast is smaller than &her years, perhaps about 40-50 people. But the overall campus reaction to ‘FASS is not like it used to be; there used to be lineups at 5:00 p.m. on opening nights, but there’s too much competition

from other things how. The Drama Department is much -&larger and there’s so much else going on, because the school’s gotten so large.” The best show, according to Nyland, has traditionally been the 10:00 p.m. show, Friday, when the cast is loose from the first show, and a lot of the audience has been to the pub. Nevertheless, despite popular request, the show will go on. The Wednesday and Thursday night shows are $1.50 each admission, with the Friday and Saturday night shows going for $1.75. Shows begin at 8:00 p.m.:, except for Friday, when there are two shows; one at 7:00, and one at 9: 00. .I r.b.‘burton !* ’

quest, Hannant and Mike Dillon were appointed by Council to draw up a plan of action to deal with the tuition hikes. Council awarded $5,000 to Radio Waterloo for the purchase of a transmitter so that more students can make use of their service. A motion which would provide $300 to the engineering student garage was forwarded to the Treasury Council for a recommendation. The Birth Control Centre, after considerable discussion which saw an amazing agreement between Hannant and CRG member Thompson, received emergency funding to continue their service on campus. In addition, the Warrier Band received

a grant of $300 for the purchase of new instruments. Council recommended to the Board of Governors that the Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) conduct a refereaum on their request for a one dollar fee increase. OPIRG had gone to the Board of Governors for a request and this request had been forwarded to Students’ . Council. Three hours into the meeting, the CRG motions were ready to be dealt with. At this point free chevron supporters Donna Rogers and Larry Hannant got up and walked out, thus breaking quorum. Heather Robertson was left to call quorum, saying that everything

important had been dealt with. Thus motions to create a ri%nthly journal of Politics, Education, Science and the Arts; to study the feasibility of improving the accessibility of Federation files to students; to publicly post agendas and meeting times of Students’ Council meetings; to give the power to call meetings to the speaker and a third of council, in addition to the president; to require a minimum of one meeting of the committee of presidents each month; to create a new executive portfolio called Society Liaison Officer to strea.mline Society-Federation communication; and one to accede to the Grad Club’s request that they be removed from membership in the Federation of Students all died on the floor. John Long, Math rep and founding member of the CRG said that this technique was highly reprehensible. (His language was actually much stronger).

21, 1977

Students The free chevron’s demand hat it b,e re-instated as the oficial student newspaper was tuned down by an overwhelmng majority of UW students in he referendum last week. The ote on the crucial question seven oncerning reinstatement was 24 in favour, 2,276 opposed. The ten to one plurality is artly explained by the free hevron’s request to their suporters to boycott the referenurn. However, it is doubtful that he result would have been afected had the boycott campaign ot been conducted. According to Bruce Rorrison, nember of the Campus Reform froup and recently-resigned from he Federation executive, the loytiott was organized because he free chevron knew it did not .ave enough support to win. All hey could hope for, said Rorrion, was to obstruct the. demoratic process enough to call ny result into question. HowNver, the plurality won by the ree chevron’s critics is so huge hat any attempt to credit it o a so-called “slanted” question s rather absurd, according to / lorrison. The turnout at the polls was 8.3 per cent. That is just a Nouple of points below the aver,ge turnout at Federation elecions and may provide some ;uide as to the success of the boycott campaign. The referendum campaign aw intensive efforts on the Iart of the free chevron supportrs to convince voters to stay lway from the polls. A special ssue of their newspaper and ables set up at most polling tations urged people not to rote. The campaign conducted on rating day has been called a lirect contravention of election by-laws by speaker of Council, lobert White. The by-laws tate that all campaign ‘material nust be removed 24 hours beore the polls open. They also rohibit direct campaigning _. on. lection days. Acting Federation President

*put Chevron

Dave McLellan issued his ,own statement, a gestetner 8?4 x 11” sheet urging students to vote. Also, the, Campus Reform Group published a similar sheet urging students to support democracy and turn out at the polls. But that was about the limit of campaign efforts by those who supported the referendum. When more than 10 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots in a referendum, the results are legally binding, according to Federation by-laws. Other than deciding to not re-instate the chevron,’ the referendum has established new guidelines for the operation of a student-funded campus newspaper. The referendum gives Students’ Council the role of publisher, including the provision and administration of - funds, hiring and firing of staff, and rules by which staff operates. This may be done by Council directly or through a body directly responsible to Council. But editorial control will be the jurisdiction of another body, this one directly elected by students with the express purpose of controlling editorial content. That will be its only job. In addition to President and. Students’ Council, students will now be called upon to elect a publications board which will be the policy-setting body for the paper. In question 6, the referendum determined that only feepaying members of the Federation may have votes on the paper. Question number two, concerning membership in the Canadian University Press, saw pro-CUP support win out by a margin of some 500 votes. But this does not mean automatic membership in CUP. That organization accepted the free chevron as a voting member in its December conference, and ejected the real chevron editor, representing the Federation of Students. That action left a bitter taste in the mouths of many Council members, which may\ affect

group. “My opposition is that Planned Parenthood was dropped on the grounds that one group had raised a sufficient fuss... and this is not grounds to drop an organization,” Dr. Morgan said. The petition started circulating Friday and those signing will have their names published in an advertisement in The Record at the end of the month to coincide with the appeal’s campaign for funds. The petition was printed at St. Matthew’s Church and distributed by members of the organization committee. . Dr. Wyse says that the appeal’s decision will cost every charitable organization money because many people in the -cornmunity have decided not to support any organization this year. “The directors placed expedience above justice... and the (appeal) organization will be subject to future attacks,” said Dr. Wyse, who has practised medicine in Kitchener for 22 years. ’ “I’m not a wide-eyed radical, but I’m outraged by the tactics of extremists on the other side of the fence. I’m not attacking the churches or the Right-to-Life people. Unfortunately it’s going to split the community,” Dr. Wyse said.

is doing a lot of good in the community. We want to heal the wounds created by this for the good of Federated Appeal,” Dr. Wyse said. The petition asks that people print the word “justice” across their donation cards to signify the protest. The petition asks that Federated Appeal, in reporting its collections, publish the amount raised under protest. The petition reads in part: “We are dismayed at the expulsion of Planned Parenthood by the directors of Federated Appeal in response to these attacks, placing expediency above justice. They have placed the appeal into doubt as to its representing the community as a whole and have made) it vulnerable to attack from any vocal group in the future.” Mr. Zinck said that the funds collected will be used “to make a very public protest in the community” by those who berieve the appeal will suffer from the alleged injustice shown Planned Parenthood. He said that the protest actually started before the Dec. 9 decision, “but we didn’t have enough support at the time.. . it was a little late to stop it.” Mr. Zinck said that a meeting of the St. Matthew’s Church council “voted unanimously to prothe ousting of Planned test” Parenthood. “Tolerance is the big word,” Dr. Wyse said. “We’re dismayed by the intolerance that exists here. The major issue is tolerance for those within our society that we disagree with. We have to learn to tolerate those we don’t agree with.” The petition is being circulated by people approved by the committee. Those signing are asked to include their occupation and address for publication. Judy Chernysh, president of Planned Parenthood, said that the organization is also planning its own fund-raising campaign to help finance its operation. It needs $30,000. It had requested $3,000 from the appeal. Dr. Robert McClure, former moderator of the United Church of Canada, is to help kick-off the campaign at the agency’s fifth anniversary dinner at the Walper Hotel Feb. 8. - d. mccurdy

Freddie Mercury’s “You Take My Breath Away” is a remarkable ballad which contrasts the cornball romanticism of the lyrics (“Every time you make a move/You destroy my mind... Anywhere you go, I’ll be right behind you/Right until the ends of the earth. ..” ) with Mercury’s breathy vocal, while the understated and intimate arrangement creates . a perfect balance between the serious content and the light delivery. The closing cut, Brian May’s ’ ‘Teo Torriate” (Japanese for “Let Us Cling Together” ), is another romantic ballad with a memorable melody and subtle production. The chorus is simple (“...In the quiet of the night/Let our candle always burn...“) and sincerely sung, and the song climaxes in a child-like sing-along which does more for the tune than all of the falsetto operatic take-offs the group can muster. A Day At The Races is a highly listenable record, which will likely be enjoyed by anyone who bought A Night At The Operd.
