Most townhouses in this area are privately owned and the owners, or tenants through the owners, are required to pay an additional fee for grounds maintenance. Pat is a student who got into his townhouse a few years ago and was paying $250 a month. Recently his landlord decided to up the rent by about $100. Pat took his case to the rent review board to appeal it, but the board told him that $350 was an O.K. price considering the fact that everyone else was paying a comparable amount.

The advantages of living off campus, in Jim’s opinion, probably outweigh the disadvantages. you can cook Your own food, a mixed blessing at times, establish an aUtOnOmOUS hft?Styk without fifty peering eyes at your door, entertain friends in your own living room,. and of course, you can maintain a more. open perspective on humanity; seeing kids and old people instead of the usual homogeneous mass of act-alike junior intellectuals. There are some things to look for if you are planning your escape from on-campus housing or from life in a seedy sub-standard

type accommodation. Don’t be fooled by the shiny white appearante of your prospective new home. See that the windows close tightly, that the paint is real and not whitewash, check the basement for leaks, and see that the doors close properly. Students cannot be too picky, _ however, since in these times most landlords would prefer to rent to working people, so if you are forced. to take one of these modern matchboxes be prepared to dish out some extra bread next winter, or get granny to knit you a few extra pairs of woollen socks. \ - Wolfgang Nagy

Be Moderate

TO THE EDITOR: A study of interest to people concerned about society, is a study on alcoholism financed by the National Institute of Health (US), which has shown that mental retardation is among the defects in the off-spring of women who drink heavily during pregnancy. Dr. Frias, director of University of Florida birth-defect centre says “from the clinical data now gathered, it can be stated accurately that a woman who drinks alcohol chronically during pregnancy stands a 50% chance of having a child with some degree of mental retardation and a 30% chance of having a child with additional multiple physical malformations.” “Dr. Frias’ conclusions are based on a review of more than 50,000 pregnancies, in which babies were born defective and follow-up checks of the children through age (7) seven”, (Toronto Sun Vol, 6 no. 92 thurs. march 10, 1977‘ pg. Certainly there is a high social cost to altoholism: Evil pursues sinners. The simple believes everything, but the prudent man or woman looks to his or her going. People ought to have understanding and instruction so they don’t become a nuisance to themselves and society. So be moderate in your drinking and in everything. - Mark Van der Wal

j Predictions

come

true

Following the publication of the second issue of the real chevron, I wrote myself. a letter, which I intended to give to Sham Roberts after we were both out of affiliation with the “Chevron affair”. Because of developments in the past week, I opened it last Monday, with the purpose of checking the accuracy of my predictions. It was dated NOV. 27. Dear Shane; Less than three weeks ago, you asked me if 1 would consider being “Publication Co-ordinator” for an interim newspaper. Your own reasons for asking me are probably more than suspect, and my reasons for accepting your offer are probably much different than your reasons for offering. My purpose for running for Chevron Editor last month was something that very few people in this university can understand: I do not feel that a group controlling a newspaper is relevant, regardless of their political affiliation. The most important element of any newspaper. as l explained to Dave Daunt after the election for Chevron Editor, is the ethics upon which it is based. I ran for Chevron Editor simply because I felt that I was the only person willing to get involved that was capable of being fair to both sides. The critics of the Chevron, now the free chevron, point out that it is worthy of being closed because of its alleged control by a Communistaffiliated group. Yet, at the same time, they seemed to delight in every charge and accusation printed in the The Other Voice and Bullseye. Simply because publications such as these support positions that certain individuals in power might hold does not mean that these publications are better than the one they are criticizing. In my view, the Bullseye is equally as guilty as the Chevron of the charges it is laying. If the sole declared purpose of these publications had been to answer the charges made by the free chevron, its existence would have been justified on the grounds that it was aimed at presenfing the truth. But they went beyond merely pointing out the facts, and began a red-

scare campaign to turn public opinion against a newspaper that students weren’t that crazy about in the first place. I realized when I agreed to do it that I would be kicking a hornet’s nest. I doubt very much whether any of the Federation Executive realizes the feeling of those on the staff or even cares. It is the main weakness of “democracy” that everyone is participatory to achieve their own ends. Murray Kernohan, once N.D.P. candidate for Halton East, told me the first time I ever talked to him, “The first goal of politicians is to get in power; the second is to stay in power; and the third is to institute what policies they can without losing too much support.” It’s a shame that the personal ambition-of many people is inversely proportional to their concern for other people. Many of the people in, the office seem to think that the -“chevron issue” will be over rather quickly, as evfdenced by Leona’s motion in last Council that I be given an “honorarium” equal to three weeks salary, at the rate of $160 per week. But this is no short battle that you have entered into; the battle for “freedom of the press” is one that can only be ended by the staff giving up their battle, or the politicians use of force to eliminate the newspaper. I cannot predict how it will end. A staff the size of the chevron, with leadership, will be able to hold out long past the end of your term as President. I doubt if anyone realized, at the time that the motion was brought up, just-what power they were putting in the hands of one person. They literally gave me more freedom than the chevron staff ever had, since there are no by-laws that cover the paper or myself. Until the money runs out, or the motion is rescinded, I can virtually print whatever I please. I mention this only because the possibjlity exists that I might, at some time, decide that the free chevron is right, and support them. This is not out of the question, since I am still learning more about the situation every day. That, however, remains to be seen. If the two papers are in existence together longer than the four weeks of Doug Thompson’s publications, I can foresee the one paper gaining more public support than the other. If that paper should happen to be the real chevron I can see some of the, present executive members trying to gain control of it for their own ends. Many of your present Executive, and certain councillors would turn it into another Bullseye if given the opportunity. But the one most capable of making this attempt, at the moment, is Thompson. As a “journalist” he is well aware of the workings of a newspaper,*and is probably aware of how subtlety can be used to implant ideas into readers. Goering developed this art to a science, and others have used it to great effect since. My earlier observation of those being most ambitious also being least concerned about others is most obvious in Thompson: there is little question of his ambition, and I’ve only known him three weeks; at the same time, I can discern almost no concern on his part for the feelings of others. Already, I can detect wishes on his part to try and influence my decisions on the paper. I will have ts keep reminding myself that his writing will be occasionally biased, and in need of close editing. For the distant future, I can see a newspaper that is controlled by one internal group, while the “staff” changes yearly; or a newspaper that has mostly paid staff, because the free chevron staff refused to work on a paper that the council set up after their paper was kicked in the ass. This can only be remedied with time: as new students enter the university, some of them will eventually become the voluntary staff of the paper. Eventually, any paper on the campus will be controlled by one of two groups: the staff, who will operate much as that of the chevron; or a Federation body, who will turn the paper into a Public Relations organ for the Federation executive and council. My intention is to resign at the end of the win-

ter term, and find a suitable replacement in the meantime. I have fears of finding a qualified person with my ethics by then, and, even if I did, I doubt very much if my successorvvill have the same demands, or even if he or she will worry about’such, for a subsequent successor. Again, what must evolve is another free chevron or Bullseye, depending on the political atmosphere or concern of the Federation. The students, which everyone claims to want to serve, cannot win: I have met very few mature individuals at U.W.. and those I have met have not expressed any desire to become involved in student politics. The ones most interested in the student politics are, generally, the most immature, wherein lies the weakness of democracy. Those that want positions of authority do so for their own ends, which are the feeling of power, or, more usually, the boosting of their own egos. You have exceptions in your Executive- but these are the exception, rather than the generality. I fear that a lengthy battle over the paper will result in violence, due to the impatience of young people with due process, and the frustration involved. You will be reading this probably after I’ve resigned, and, unless you run for re-election, after your term of office is over. But I figured it might be interesting to see if any of my predictions have come true, six months after you offered me the position of “editor” of a newspaper to not be involved in the Chevron/Federation struggle, and what other developments have occurred. Good Luck, R.B. Burton

All About

Us

Dear Sirs In the past I have been quite upset with the content of the free chevron. I,still do not like their content, but I am also unhappy with the content of the last issue of the real chevron (by ‘the way I’d appreciate if-you changed your name to distinguish from down stairs). Some of its recent practices have reminded me too much of the free chevron. For instance why was an article regarding the grad student membership (an on-campus issue) not printed in favour of an article about the excesses of the Iranian dictatorship. I get the feeling that we are quite familiar by now of the faults of the Shah. However the rejection of an article is not the only reason I write to this paper. There seems to be a tendency in recent articles to mix commentary and bias with the news articles rather than putting commentary where it belongs in editorials and columns. Such bias was shown in last week’s lead article. What is the purpose of the paper? If it is to be a Federation mouthpiece it should say so and not pretend to be otherwise. Is it council, the executive, the president, or a select group of paid staffers who control the paper? , These staffers, who were never hired by council, seem to feel that they have the right to fire the only person whose hiring was approved by council. It reminds me of the chevron production manager (never hired, by council) who last summer tried to get the council-appointed editor fired. Such a move could have allowed the production manager’s friend to become editor. That did not happen at that time. What will happen with the real chevron now? I ‘hope, that in the future, it will be better run than the free chevron, and less biased. J.J. Long

On Lysenko

Some time ago, Dr. Wahlsten published an article in the “free Chevron” entitled “In memory of T.D. Lysenko” in which he praises Lysenko as a good scientist. Later, he promised that he would present evidence showing that the “vicious attacks” published in the book of Zh. Medvedev, “The Rise and Fall of T. D. Lysenko”, (Columbia University Press, 1969) are not substantiated. Dr. Wahlsten still has not presented his convincing evidence; on the contrary, he and a few others asked me to write what I know about Lysenko. Well, I am willing to do that, although I have always been interested in .Lysenko more as a part of the Stalinist system than as a scientist. I hope that Dr,Wahlsten will be able to show why the Medvedev’s book is “vicious”. I found it very precise, convincing, and devoid of ordinary Marxist rhetorics. It provides, of course, devastating evidence against Lysen ko and Lysen koism. My presentation today is based partly on Medvedev’s book, but I am trying to avoid everything that I cannot confirm by my personal study or experience. The main points of Lysenko’s theory of heredity are as follows: Lysenko did not agree with the basic postulate of modern biology that cellular chromosomes contain a hereditary substance separate from the rest of the organism (genotype). He assumed that heredity is a general internal property of living matter and as such does not need a separate genetical system localized in the chromosomes, and transmis-.ble from generation to generation. He completely rejected the existence of genes. One of his pupils, K.Y. Kostriukova, wrote still in 1962: “The hypothetical connection of the empty abstractions (of the gene theory) with specific substrates chromosomes,, DNA - declared to be the ‘material carriers of heredity’ does not confer on these abstractions material content, any more than superstitious deification of objects makes the superstitious materialistic” (cit. after Medvedev, but I feel that this citation. is very typical for Lysenko and his school.-1 have seen in my life many articles written in this vein.) Another part of his theory was the “law of species life”. If several plants are growing in the same place in a cluster from seeds, most of them placidly die, sacrifice themselves for the prosperity of one plant which they guarded battting like soldiers with the surrounding world. This is not the result of crowding. Lysenko ( 1955 cit. after Medvedev) wrote: “It must be emphasized that self-thinning-out or the death of individual saplings in the group occurs not because they are crowded but for the express pur*pose of insuring that in the future they will not be crowded.” I canriot help myself, but this reminds me of Friedrich Nietzsche and the arrival of his superman who will grow on the bones of us, ordinary people (in “Also sprach Zarathustra” etc.). In any case, this is another example of Lysenko’s mysticism. The third part is his theory of the transformation of species. Lysenko wrote in Agrobiologiya in 1952 (Medvedev, p. 170): “Under the action of external environment which is unsuitable or little suitable for a given species, particles of a different species for which the conditions are more suitable arise in the body of the plant. From these particles rudiments (buds or seeds) are formed which develop into individuals of the other species”. Thus, he and his

Excellent Casanova Exposing the myth behind history’s greatest sexual athlete is the subject of Fellini’s latest venture into surreal cinema. If you’ve been turned off by some of Fellini’s earlier pictures, you may find that English dialogue and concentration on characterization make this film more watchable. But be warned; this is not everybody’s cup of tea. j If you’re into soft-core porn, I’d advise you to wait until the

Music The Best New Vocalist of the year is 32 years old and has been pounding out his particular brand of rock and roll since 1965. His songs range from haunting rock ballads to get up and move rockers of the first degree. He describes the regional basis of his sound as “high energy white rock and roll with soul undercuts from Motown and a strong dance beat.” His latest Nightmoves album has recently been certified gold. Please welcome Bob Seger to the current music scene. Seger’s ma-in ticket to national .fame has been the single ‘Nightmoves’, which he says is about “the first big thrill, if you will.” In addition to a single that clicked, the old adage about maturing and growing in the rock experience seems a factor too. Newsweek says Seger’s songs have come to reflect an aging rocker’s blend of wistfulness and hope, hovering eloquently. between lament and affirmation. Fame is not new to Bob, but widespread recognition is. He has always been very big in Detroit.

Conpdy

Tony Curtis version drops around. There should be plenty of bare boobs and butts in that one. In Casanova, the sex scenes are anything but erotic. Drawn freely from Casanova’s autobiography, the film moves not so much through 18th century Europe, but more through the landscape of Fellini’s imagination. The bizarre settings, occurrences and individuals (ranging from cockney midgets to Asian

female giants) are all impressions of an era that Fellini obviously had no respect for. The grotesque architecture, the pathetically pseudo-intellectual conversation, the decadent revelry are all exaggerated to create an image of a people living in a world they have created where spontaneous pleasure is disguised as romanticism. Casanova is seen as both a perpetrator and victim of the prevailing emptiness of the times. Instead of being seen as a bed-hop-

Farcical Feydeau

“Good God Darling, Not in the Nude! ” and ‘ ‘Leonie’s Jumped the Gun”, this week’s university drama group presentations are two very fast, very witty one act plays. These plays are great fun for those who have outgrown pie throwing but still need to witness ridiculousness to make them laugh. Georges Feydeau may have shocked some old maids in his time but the shock has worn off. What is left is called mildly amusing ; something like a Victorian

“I Love Lucy”. The farce is clever, logically illogical and somewhat artful in its plot construction, but any attempt to compare ,Feydeau. to Shaw is ridiculous. Feydeau chooses to play with mannerisms which, although they still exist in watered down forms at present, have largely been dismissed as unimportant social factors. Feydeau’s humour is in danger of becoming obscure or ridiculous, especially when one

ping trickster, he is presented as a man, of many falsehoods and deception. The scholarly front he puts up is no more than a cumulation of ideas and philosophy he derives from others. He condemns the barbarianism he sees in Prussia and Rome, but he indulges in meaningless sexual exploits, finding his true mate to be a mechanical life sized dummy. The subject matter is treated with more contempt than in any other film by Fellini. This sharply contrasts with the sentimental handling of “Amacord”. The viewer cannot identify with central character. Even to feel sorry for him takes quite an effort. The prevalent negativism may not appeal. to many people, but these qualities do not make it an unenjoyable film. Sutherland once again proves

The Joy of Triuiu

by Bernie Smith. Van Nostrand Reinhold Ltd. $6.95 in softcover. Have you ever looked at your partner after the supreme moment and not had something suitably witty to say as a denouement; well you won’t get any ideas from reading this book. For those of you addicted to “It Happened in Canada”, in the daily papers comic section or the “It’s a Fact” fillers, this book is a must. It goes a long way in showing that one man’s moot point is indeed another man’s triviality. This is not too say that there were not any bright moments, For throughout the text there were indeed many brave attempts at humour. Brave, yes; successful maybe. In 344 pages -the author manages to pack in numerous trivial The

his worth as a versatile actor. There is not so much as a hint that this is the same man who played the wise-cracking surgeon in “M.A.S.H.” or the lonely, melancholy private eye in “Klute”. If you think “Casanova may be too heavy, but are intrigued with the theme, you might catch “Shampoo”, a tale of a modern day Casanova whose obsession with sex leads him to confront, the pointlessness ‘of his life. It’s playing along with last year’s “Taxi Driver”, an examination of an out-oftouch loner who attempts to rebel against the oppressive surroundings of New York’s human zoo. The film gives a fascinating picture of a lost soul in this type of environment, but the ending is not only destructive in its content, but also to the film as a whole.

For example : did you know that, “Of all the 250,000 species of flowering plants, there are just two that don’t need moisture from the soil.” “The Panama’ianal does not cross the Isthmus from east to west. Much of the way it runs north and south.” or “On July 4, 1776, King George HI of England noted in his diary: “Nothing of importance happened today.” But then again did you really care to know.

considers the amount material in the plays.

of sexist

The production has its own problems. Accents are one of them. Vickie Dyke, who played Clarissa in “Good God Darling”, seemed to have more than a little difficulty getting her rapid fire lines out without shifting accents a few times. r The casts of the two plays, however, gave the overall impression of competency and control, with-

out which the plays would become sideshows. Deane Clarke’s bellowing could have been a little louder, but other than that he seems to have caught the spirit of the times in his past. In “Leonie’s Jumped the Gun”

Vickie Dyke and Joel Kaiser, also the leading characters, manage to hold control over the potential overacting which this material could easily inspire. Still, it’s only a buck fifty and reasonably entertaining. -W$fgang

The longevity of a recent release “The Chevron Affair”, based on a book by Ernie Shmedly, never fails to puzzle me. It opened at the Uniloo cinema on Sept. 24 and despite its lack of viewers, its poor critical acclaim (some reviews have been scathingly negative) it has been held over now for over five months. There seems to be, however, two groups of regular viewers who throw popcorn and hot chocolate at each other during intermission. Set in a fictitious Canadian university, the film opens with a slam-bang action sequence of corrupt demagogue of the Student’s Federation, Shamed Roberts, battling furiously with several viscious a-looking char-

acters over a type-writer. In one of the goriest scenes ever put on film, his index finger is torn open. Bewildered at this point, the viewer is gradually let in on the reasons behind this occurrence. The action switches back and forth between the offices of “The Really Free Chevron” and those of the Student’s Federation. In the- newspaper office, we are introduced to a group of revolutionary student radicals, the IA1 (Involved AntiCapitalist Indignif iers ) who are using copies of “People’s Canada Daily News” as a model for the tabloid they are gradually subverting. Meanwhile, Shamed Roberts and his cocontinld

state

Since the Khmer Rouge took Cambodia in April of 75 not much has been publicised about the state of affairs in that country. In February’s Readers Digest a condensed version of a book appeared; a book which is to be published in the near future by some members of the Digest’s editorial staff. The book deals with supposed eye witness accounts of some of the atrocities which have been and are still going on in Cambodia. The people interview-

horts are involved in questionable activities never really disclosed to the audience. All the while, there are brief scenes of the formation. of the Chevron -Removal Group (CRG), which is co-founded by a well-spoken but unscrupulous individual, Dug Tom Sohn. The viewer wonders about the future significance of this organization. The film deteriorates into tediousness at this point (a prevailing pattern in the film as a whole). The producer gratefully left out the sub-plot concerning the changing of locks which was in the book. But the film is still complex. A mind-bogglingly little more co-operation among the script-writers would have been appreciated. I had to see the movie three times to figure it out. The film’s central crisis occurs after the “Really Free Chevron” has been converted into a mouthpiece for the-IAI. against A recall petition Roberts is started by members of the “RFC”. With strains of the “Internationale” playing in the background we see various - students scribbling their names on the petition, dissolv- ing into scenes of Roberts rejecting it because of all sorts of silly little things. Finally, in a sequence that employs the use of low-angle photography, and done * completely without sound, Muck Kills walks into Roberts’ office. He hands the petition to Roberts’, smiling only once because it will make a good picture for his campaign posters. Overhead shot. Roberts slumps down on his desk regretfully muttering something about what a good green Beret he would have made. Kills looks on with a sneer on his face and then turns to leave the room. Fade-out. During interm&ion, I barely escaped three angry looking viewers from the far left row who came at me wielding leaflets. The first scene of the second half is a lengthy one. It is a meeting of the CRG. The importance of this organization dawns upon the viewer when we discover that they will support Dug Tom Sohn as a presidential candidate. In the middle of the meeting, we are introduced to a minor character by the name of Creat Whisley. Played by Marlon Brando, he gives a strong performance (the role was a toss-up between him and Robert di Niro) . Naive in the ways of politics,

Since I the communists took power from the corrupt and incompetent government of Gen. Lon No1 strange occurrences have been reported. Refugees state that government soldiers have evacuated Phnom Penh and other major cities forcing the people into the wildzess to #build small towns and grow rice. The government and new to the university, Whisley is captivated by Dug Tom Sohn’s eloquent speech and soon joins the CRG. In a symbolic sequence, we see a tattered picture of Shamed Roberts taken down from a wall and replaced by one of Dug Tom Sohn. A dart hits him square in the nose. An unknown voice shouts, “Bullseye! ” The only interesting sequence in an otherwise lifeless campaign comes during a speech made by Sohn in the Campus Centre. Various R. Free Chevrics hurtle vicious rumours and allegations at Sohn. In contrast to the shouting Chevrics (unfortunately most of their remarks were undecipherable as a result of poor sound equipment and overacting), Sohn’s voice seems weak and evasive. A comment on the other candidates. c Elliot Gould gives a dull and stereo-typed performance as Another Joe McDonald. ‘John Vernon exuded overconfidence as Muck Kills. Jerry Lewis gives a very funny performance as John Trump who does fancy footwork as cc)mic relief during his speech. Sohn is barely elected and begins to worry immediately about the possibility of recall. Taking precautions to clog- up the recall process., he appoints Ron Hefner, a Capitalist Playboy, as vice-President in hopes that he will seem as an undesirable successor . in the eyes of the Really Free Chevrics.

But it turns out that nothing will stop him from abusing that “room at the top.” Making an offer contrary to the sentiments .of his supporters, Sohn proposes to reinstate the Chevron, pending an investigation. But he finds out that this is not as simple as those two words that the Chevrics display on their buttons state. Certain devoted anti-capitalists want to be paid ‘the salaries that have been denied for severaimonths. To negotiate the matter, Sohn

Coffee is a relative newcomer in the world of psychoactive ‘drugs. According to Arab folklore, it was discovered in about A.D. 850 by a melancholy Abyssinian goatherd named Kaldi, ,who noticed his flock .gamboling about the meadow after nibbling the fruit of a glossy green tree. Curious about their friskiness, Kaldi ate some of the bright red fruit himself, felt a rush of energy, leaped up and began cavorting with his goats. A passing monk was amazed to see the once sad goatboy dancing merrily round the tree in such oppressive heat. The monk plucked some berries and took them back to his monastery, delighted to find something to keep him awake during all-night vigils and prayers. Like most of the other caffeine stimulants that pharmacologists call excitantia - tea,

Sale was banned, coffee trees were burned down and those convicted of drinking it were led through town on a donkey.

to make it legal. Capuchin monks experimented with different coffee preparations and invented cappuccino as a remedy against plague. Of all the caffeine stimulants coffee has the most demonic undertone. Beneath its shimmering surface lurks something secretive, sinister, even satanic : a . dark mysterious force that gossip, wit and laughter cannot allay. An unearthly feeling in the most mundane of drinks, that conjures up apparitions in the desert, ghostly sailing ships, strange tales of bravado and duplicity understood with the heart, not the feverish brain. Mark Twain, in The Mysterious Stranger (an exorcist tale set in gothic Austria), recounts the myth of how coffee came to Vienna. An old manservant, says Twain, “had served in the wars, and was at the seige of Vienna ; and there, when the Turks were defeated and driven among the captured away, things were bags of coffee, and the Turkish prisoners explained the character of it, and now he always kept coffee by him, to

\ drink himself and also to astonish the ignorant.” The Holy Wars also brought coffee to England. Cyrill, Patriarch of the Greek Church in Constantinople, was assassinated in 1637 and his disciple, the prelate Conopios, fled to Oxford. There Conopios regaled. students with fables of the Orient and the advancements of Arabic science and medicine, over tiny cups of Turkish brew. Soon scholars were meeting regularly at the Oxford Coffee Club, and in 1662 they were granted a charter by King Charles II. Thus began the most prestigious scientific association in English ’ history, the Royal Society. It’s a real joy to initiate a novice into the pleasures of coffee tasting, especially one who already takes pride in drug connoisseurship. Fred is such a person - a marijuana mavin who can distinguish Oaxacan from Michoacan ,in one toke, blindfolded, but has never paid much attention to coffee. We saunter into Cost Plus down on Fisherman’s Wharf at noon one day and I ask him what kind of coffee he likes. “Strong” is the only description he can muster.

Remember when Bernstein was ‘trying to get that bookkeeper .. from CREEP to open up about the Plumbers’ slush fund? He kept sipping slowly on cups of coffee and finally got her to agree that Liddy, Magruder and Porter, I think, had gotten money from the fund. “Bernstein rushed back to Woodward all excited -’ in the Hoffman says ‘Well movie, you’d be crazy too if you were operating on 20 cups of coffee’ and they started digging deeper into secret White House intelligence activities. Eventually it. led them to Mitchell, Haldeman and the president himself. Now that’s a White House coffee story! ” The tale of bringing, coffee to the New -World reads like an Errol Flynn movie script. The Dutch recognized coffee’s commercial potential sooner than the French, introducing it to JaJa in 1690 and Surinam in 1718, but limiting seeds and cuttings to Dutch nationals only. Then as now, however, the great botanists of the world shared specimens and the Dutch sent Louis XIV’s royal botanist Antoine de Jussieu, one little plant from which the mighty Latin American coffee industry grew. De Jussieu - who, not coincidentally, was also the first taxonomist to describe cocazealously guarded the few coffee trees he’d managed to cult&ate at the Jardin des Plantes from the Dutch specimen. In 1723 a young French naval officer Gabriel de Clieu, approached him with the idea of growing coffee in Martinique, but de Jussieu refused to part with any of his treasured plants. Undaunted, de Clieu clambered over the garden walls and stole a small coffee tree, setting sail *for Martinique the next day with it enclosed in a glass cage. The voyage was incredible, including storms that shatter-

ed ~the cage, and nearly washed the plant overboard, a pirate attack, a swordfight’ with a Dutch spy over the coffee plant and a long panoramic scene in which the ship was becalmed and de Clieu had to 1share his sip of rationed water with his tree. Eventually they reached Martinique, where de Clieu planted his prize, surrounded by armed guards day and night, beginning the West Indies coffee trade. But that’s not all there was to it... In 1727 a suave Brazilian army colonel, Francisco de Melo Palheta, was invited to arbitrate a dispute over the boundary between French and Dutch Guiana, both coffee countries that prohibited export of cuttings on point of death. In the mornings Palheta met with the governors and diplomats about the boundary squabble; in the afternoons he secretly romanced the French governor’s wife. When the border was settled, she presented him with a bouquet in front of hundreds of witnesses, obstensibly for having resolved the dispute, actually a token of her appreciation of his sexual finesse. Hidden in the bouquet were a few cuttings which Palheta. triumphantly smuggled back to Brazil to start what later became the world’s largest coffee industry. All this from the one plant de Clieu swiped from de Jussieu’s gardens. “What’s all this about Jamaican Blue Mountain?” asks the friendly silver-haired lady at Freed, Teller & Freed’s, a dank traditional coffee store right in the heart of San Francisco’s flashiest gay shopping area,, Polk Street. “I’ve had fifteen requests for it today.” Reggae and Rasta, I think, go great with ganja - but I reply, “It’s my favorite coffee, and even at $5 a pound here it’s less than anyplace else. ” “There’s only about 100,000 pounds of it produced every year,” she muses. “We have to ration it. It’s ironic, you know? We’ve never been so busy, but right now the coffee industry is in chaos. Frosts in Brazil last year. War in Angola. Earthquakes in Guatemala. * Commercial coffee has been downsliding, but there’s a revival of interest in gourmet coffees. ” “Maybe it’s drugs,” I blurt. “The drug revolution started over in North Beach with the beatniks 20 years ago, and kids started flocking to the coffeehouses. They got a taste for espresso. Now they’ve grown up and it’s a revival. Since coffee’s so expensive anyway, they might as well throw out their percolators get a drip system, and taste some real coffee. for a change:” Still searching for pure Blue Mountain I try Hardcastle’s retail outlet on Greenwich, where Doug, the counterman, tells me they’ve been out for almost two months. “Most of it goes to Japan. We were ‘selling it for $8 a pound and it may go up to $10 next time. Jim Hardcastle of Capricorn Coffees is the only roaster in the western United States who imports it, and he has letters from the Jamaican government to prove it.” . I notice a gleaming silver canister labeled -Java. “Is that real Java? I thought the Arabicas in Java got wiped out in World War II and all they produced any more were Robustas. “, “It’s illegal to sell Indonesian Robustas as Java,” he- replies. “They use Robustas as filler in commercial blends. But there’s still a small Arabica crop and that’s the real thing.” “Far out,” I think as I exit with a bag of Java ($3.30), “you can get it if you really want. If you wait long enough.” Passing the Coffee Cantata,

- page 9

a swanky restaurant on Union Street, brings to mind the Baroque era when coffee inspired dozens of tinkling minor masterpieces of chamber music. In Bach’s famed “Coffee Cantata” of 1732, a young woman named Lisette is threatened that she’ll never find a husband because she drinks so much coffee. She agrees to stop (and Bach tosses in some strange “medical opinions” against coffee), but finally wins from her fiance a written contract guaranteeing her the right to drink it, as a condition of marriage. At the other end of Union Street, over Russian Hill in North Beach, is Malvina’s coffeehouse, one of the finest in a city full of great cafes. Margo St. James, chairmadam of Coyote (“a loose women’s organization” working for decriminalization of prostitution) breezes into Malvina’s spacious loft late one afternoon. In cut-offs and Coyote T-shirt, she radiates the wholesome healthiness of a champion long distance runner, which she is. She’s just back from a Pike’s Peak competition and the Democrat and *Republican national conventions. “It was perfect timing to be at the conventions during the sex scandals,” she says, “but the pols are running scared. It’ll be hard to get Congressional hearings this year, and it’s a shame, too, because we’ve finally worked out a detailed decriminalization program. We had a loiter-in in New York, which is gonna get the hippo-critters in ‘cause they arrested trouble, a lot of ordinary housewives.” Margo flashes a toothy grin. “You know, coffee had a lot to do with the early women’s movement. The idea of a coffee break originated when working women and children in the cotton mills of England demanded a break in their 16-hour days. they And kaffee - Klatsches: were treasured institutions among a rising new class of German housewives and working women in the early 1800s. Theyyd gather to discuss political affairs, and the men - who were originally excluded from these gatherings - tried to put it down as just ‘gossip,’ klatsch. Nowadays we’d call it consciousness raising. ” In Paris; too, women defiantly carved out a new niche for themselves in the Bohemianism of the 1830s. George Sand set the style by clipping her hair short, wearing men’s clothes, and accompanying Balzac to the coffeehouses where she almost singlehandedly created a new type of women: la lionne. “She did not want to please by her beauty or charm by her wit, she wanted to surprise and astonish by her audacity,” wrote a contemporary. “Horsewoman and huntress whip in hand, spurs on boots, gun across her shoulder, cigar in mouth, glass in hand, all impertinence and rowdiness, - la lionne delighted in‘ defying and disconcerting the peaceful elegance of the salons, and left them.. There was an *empty place where she should have been, and nobody came forward to fill it” - except, we might now add, the legions of libertarians men and women, who crowd the cafes of every civilized corner of the globe. Out over the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, Bea, Linda and Jim have a super house high in the hills, where Michelle and I go on weekends to escape the city. As the sun fades this afternoon, it’s still 97 degrees under the plum tree and we’re all clustered around skinnydipping with the pool, Eleanor and Herb.

A motion may be brought up to Council at this Sunday’s meeting to fire the editor of the real chevron, R.B. Burton. At last Friday’s staff meeting, from which interested students were barred by Federation Vice-President, Ron Hipfner, the three staff members who have been responsible for the bulk of the content d,uring the last few issues, along with President Doug Thompson and Hipfner informed Burton that they wished him to relinquish all control over the content of the paper. Burton was appointed editor of the paper last November by Council, and went on a leave of absence in February, in order to catch up on school work. He was requested, however, to continue, on as “Co-editor” since the person assigned to do the job of editor for the three nothing about weeks knew sports. however, The controversy, stems from his refusal to allow the rest of staff to print an article promoting only the Federation side in the forced eviction of Chevron staff members Marc Shafroth and Jonathan Coles from the Publication Offices two weeks ago, and a “comment” criticizing an article written by Val Moghadam in the free chevron. During the in camera meeting, Thompson, former editor of the Bullseye, suggested that the real chevron has evolved beyond the point where it is to remain neutral in the continuing Federation/ Chevron debate. One of the conditions made by Burton when ‘he agreed to accept the position when it was offered to him by then-President, Shane Roberts, was that it would not exist to promote the Federation arguments, nor criticize the position of the free chevron. The motive behind Thompson’s and Hipfner’s support of the rest of staff, Burton suggests might have a lot to do with their continuing suggestions that the name of the real chevron be in changed to The Chevron, order to pick up the $15,000. of Youthstream , advertising, which can be carried only by a University of Waterloo newspaper carrying that name. Burton has pointed out continually that the real chevron was set up as an interim paper only, and that

it ’ would never become The Chevron as long as he was editor of it. Burton said that The Chevron was closed September 24, and, the staff of that paper now comprises the staff of the free chevron. To change the name of the paper would not only be unfair to these people, he said, but possibly in contravention of the the Federation bylaws, and Corporations Act. The people at the meeting Thompson, Hipfner, interim editor, Mike Dillon (recently ratified by Council as Co-Chairperson of the ‘Board of Publications) ; Arts Councillor, Pattijoy Armoogam; and Wolfgang Nagy indicated to Burton that they had decided their position previous to the closed meeting, and did not wish any further time to consider the matter, or talk about it with the editor. Burton suspects that there are very definite wishes on the part of certain members of the Federation Executive and Council, and the Campus Reform Group, of which Thompson was a founding member and their choice for Presidential Candidate to control the content of the paper. These people are aware of the feelings of the staff members on the matter, -and are supporting those that will serve their aims, Burton feels. After considering the matter over the following 48 hours, Burton decided that he preferred to be fired from the position by Council, rather than quietly relinquish control of a paper of which he had been solely responsible for its weekly publication for the first ten issues. At last Sunday’s Council meeting, he presented his position to Co-op math Councillor, and form-

er Speaker of Council, R.A.G. White, who assisted him in getting his request onto the agenda of next Sunday’s Council meeting. It stated that he would like Thompson, Hipfner, Armoogam, or Dillon to bring this motion before Council, if they wished his firing. Since he was hired to the position by Council, under By-law nine, he can be removed from the position only by Council and not. as the staff and the top two Executive members hoped by the decision of paid staff and Executive members. “If the other three- paid staff had approachedme with their position, we could have discussed it, and I would have probably acceded to their points, to a certain extent, since I never originally intended to continue in the position after the end of this term. But I resent very much the attempted intervention by Thompson and Hipfner, whose only interest in this is a political one. “Their current plan is to have the real chevron appear on cam pus on May 1 as The Chevron, of the so-called irregardless they claim to be “negotiations” currently carrying out with the staff of the free chevron. “If need be, I am now prepared to continue on as editor as long as possible, in order to prevent the turning of the paper into - an Executive mouthpiece, and another Bullseye. “There have been suggestions made to me in the past that I might be fired if I printed certain articles, or did not print certain articles, but these came from former Publications Chairperson, Leona Kyrytow, \ an d were in jest.

revisited termined by nobody but the editor. The paper is responsible to no-one but Council, who are the elected representatives of all the students, and not a select minority of individuals. ” As to whether Council will support him in the matter, Burton said, “If Thompson has the number of Councillors in his back pocket that he claims, I have no illusions as to my continuance as editor. But I wish the matter to be presented before open Council, rather than decided in a secret meeting of a small group, who had made up their minds behind my back, before confronting me. “There has been talk of introducing another motion at this week’s Council meeting, eliminating all paid positions from the real chevron. If the motion is carried, we may quickly find out who is interested in working on the paper out of interest, and who is doing it for the money.” Burton and Dillon have been

sharing the salary that Council decided to pay Burton, during Burton’s leave-of-absense. The $160 shared equally by the other two paid staff members was decided by Thompson alone, and it has never been revealed as to where the money is coming, although it is known that it is being paid from Federation funds, never brought before Council. -christian sur Note to Council: it looks like newspapers will always be a problem.

’ Baha’is celebrate New. Year The first day of spring conjures up images of renewal; rebirth and new beginnings. These are some of the reasons that the Bab, one of the principle figures in the Baha’i Faith, chose March 21st to celebrate Baha’i New Year. It marks the first day of the first month in a new 19 month calendar designed by the Bab, each month consisting of 19 days. The names of the months are based on the various attributes of God; for instance this first month is called “Splendor”. On the first day of each month Baha’i communities gather together to celebrate a Feast which involves devotion, consultation on the affairs of the community, and fellowship. The last month of the year from March 2nd to 21st, “Loftiness” is set aside for fasting and prayer in preparation for the forthcoming year. The fast is observed from sunrise to sunset each day. Prior to the beginning of this last month, a four day period called the Intercalary Days equalizes the calen-

dar to the 365 day ‘year, and constitutes the gift-giving time of the Baha’i year. It is the conviction of the Baha’i Faith that the lives and teachings of both the Bab and Baha’u’llah who cameaafter Him, have infused a fresh capacity into the life of mankind, much as the arrival of spring itself revives in the earth its inherent . capacity to foster growth. All the myriad achievements of mankind in the fields of technology, mass communications, transportation and science in the past 100 years are the physical manifestations of this new capacity. From the cycles of nature the Baha’i Faith draws a parallel to the history of religion. Each of the world’s religions has gone through the same four stages of spring, summer, fall and winter. Each experiences the youthful vigor of spring when its Founder appears in the world, the intensity of summer during its most creative period, in the fall, when it yields its harvest and the fullness of its achievement; then, inevitably, it slips into winter, when like a tree its leaves fallen, it stands silent, awaiting the return of spring. With the coming of the Bab and Baha’u’llah, Baha’ is believe, the religion of God has been renewed once more, this time to culminate in the zenith of its achievement, with the unification of the entire human race in one common faith.

From its appearance, this dish would seem to be dull and tasteless. But it is one of the most flavorful ,foods you are likely to experience, the more so because its flavor is unexpected.

Bring the chicken bouillon to boiling in a large saucepan. Add the won tons a few at a time and cook them for about five minutes in the boil’ ing bouillon. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on paper towels, and keep hot. Cook all the won 1 tons in this way. While cooking the last batch of won tons, add the shallots and celery, sliced diagonally. If you wish, add the celery leaves also. Before serving, return won tons to soup and heat to boiling. Serve with soy sauce (serves 5-7). Baked

the butter or margarine, stirring in the flour, and gradually adding the milk (instant will do well), stirring constantly. Heat over moderate heat, stirring, until thickened. To assemble pour a small amount of tomato sauce into a 9” x 9” baking dish. ‘Cover with a layer of cooked lasagne noodles. Spread a thin layer of the- meat mixture evenly over this. Then dribble the white sauce thinly over this and scatter some of the grated cheeses on top. Cover with another layer of noodles, and repeat, adding meat, white sauce, cheese, noodles, meat, white sauce and ending with a generous topping of cheese. Pour the rest of the tomato sauce over top. Bake in a moderate oven (350) for 30 minutes. Serve with grated Parmesan, more tomato sauce (heated) if desired, garlic bread, and either a dry red wine or a white wine (try Blue Nun). The lasagne can be cut more easily and will stay together better if you wait about 5 to 10 minutes after removing it from the oven before cutting it (serves 4 to 5).

Lasagne

Most stores don’t carry green lasagne, but this recipe will work with the plain egg pasta also (just not as well). We have only found one place in KitchenerWaterloo that sells the green pasta (made with spinach,. and much more flavorful than the plain pasta.) It is a little Italian grocery store at 25 Bridgeport East (the street next to the Waterloo post office), on the second block from King. This store has just about anything you might need for Italian cooking. about 6 pieces of lasagne, cooked according to package directions 1 pound ground pork 1 pound ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 stalk celery 1 carrot about ‘/4 pound salami or mortadella (if you have some) 1 teaspoon nutmeg l/2 teaspoon ground allspice l/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1 ‘/2 to 2 cups Qmato sauce VI cup dry white wine salt l/2 cup butter or margarineLL l/2 cup flour 4 cups milk L l/2 lb. mozzarella grated Parmesan, grated

In a medium saucepan combine 1 cup water, the butter and salt and heat until boiling. Remove from heat. With a wooden spoon beat in the flour, a little at a time. Over low heat, beat the mixture for about 1 to 2 minutes (it must leave the sides of the pan and form a ball). Remove from heat. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating with wooden spoon after each addition until well blended. Stir in the cheese and mustard until well blended. In a large (about 4 quart) saucepan, bring 2. quarts slightly salted water to a boil. Reduce the heat so that the water is below boiling point. With a teaspoon heated by dipping it into the simmering water remove 1 teaspoon of the dough and slide it into the water with another heated spoon. Cook about one fourth of the dough at a time. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes, or until the gnocchi are firm and cooked through. Remove them with a slotted spoon and leave to drain well on paper towels. Repeat until all the dough is used.

for me. It’s about a droll experiment he claims was made in London. :, “The destinies of a people depend on their food and diet,” Balzac intones in Eleanor’s melodious voice. “The English government permitted disposal of the lives of three condemned prisoners; who were given the option .of being hanged according to thei usual practice of that country, or of living exclusively on tea or coffee or chocolate without additional food or drink. The unhappy fools accepted. Perhaps anyone condemned to die would have done the same,. As each ailiment offered more or less the same chance, they chose willy-nilly. “The man who lived on chocolate died after eight months. “The man who lived on coffee lasted two years. “The man who lived on, tea succumbed after three years. “I suspect that the East India Company solicited this experiment in the interests of its own commerce. “The man of chocolate died in a horrible state of- putrescence, devoured by lice. His limbs fell off one by one, like those of the Spanish monarchy. “The man of coffee died burnt out, as if the fires of Gomorrah had roasted him to a crisp. You could L have made lime out of him. In fact, somebody proposed that - but the experiment seemed contrary to the immortality of his soul. “The man of tea became emaciated and almost transparent, and died of consumption in the condition of a lantern; you could see right through his body: . a ’ philanthropist could have read the Times by putting a light behind his corpse. ‘ ‘The proper English couldn’t have permitted a more original

Man-Ekvironment It was evident at Tuesday’s meeting of the Man-Environment dept. that the students and staff were pissed off about the proposed budget cutback which they are currently facing. There was also much concern over the fact that certain courses are being dropped and, in the words of Collin De’Ath, a’ lot of profs are being “shafted”. Dept. Chairman, G.B. Priddle made a small speech near the opening of the meeting in which he explained that he had every confidence in the Ma&Environment dept., and that he was never more positive about anything. He explained that the dropped‘ courses would make more room for various new ideas which had been suggested to him by some faculty members. Priddle went on to list many new courses which are being considered for next year. He did not, however, address himself to the question of cutbacks, or the fact that at least one prof will be dropped next year because of this. When a student asked about the plausibility of getting more money, Priddle made the old joke about pulling teeth while stating that he didn’t see much hope

experiment. ’’ After dinner we settle in for a game of ’ Dealer , McDope. Linda sips Antigua from her grandmother’s cup, a dainty bit of gold-rimmed china made a hundred years ago in imperial Austria. “Wow! ” she . says, rolling her dice. “It spells C-O-FF-E-E in big letters in your mouth!” Taking it as an omen of good luck, Linda charges into Guatemala City on the game board and proceeds to corner the dope market. Two hours later the rest of us are lamenting the deplorable commercialization weed will probably undergo once it’s legalized. “Look what happened with coffee,” Jim says. “With all the incredible kinds of coffee in the world, people still drink instant. Brim was the official drink of the Olympics. Have you seen those new ‘European’ mixes? They’re all powdered non dairy creamer and sugar and chemicals. Balzac was right - what’s going to happen to our destiny with Americans glugging down gallons of this kind of shit?” Jim is an architect and sometime NASA consultant who specializes in . spacecraft interiors ,and other mini-environments, so I ask if he knows what kind of coffee the astronauts took to the moon. “Probably freeze-dried,” he replies. “All their food was freeze-dried, because you can boil water on a spaceship without too much trouble. But can you imagine it ? We spend billions of dollars so some astronaut can sip a cup through a straw while he’s dangling out there, and that’s, the best we can do. America’s legacy to outer space - freeze-dried cof fee. Sooner or later they’ll be growing it hydroponically on Mars.”

action

of getting more monev After a short question and answer period the Chairman left, and the students and faculty began to discuss a strategy. It was decided, with regards to the cutbacks, that they would demand a statement from the dean one in which he would clearly state his position, by Monday. Then they would form a committee to quickly deal with the problem since there isn’t much time left in the term. It was also decided that a statement be sent to the Faculty and University Administration by the students of Man-Environment studies. In this they will demand ’ that the university recognize the importance of the programs and the fact that the success of the Man-Environment program is dependent on a low faculty-staff ratio. They want a committment from the university to review the formula which determines departmental allotment. It is hoped that this letter might result in an increased per capita allotment ,for the Man-Environment department. The effect of this, on the rest of campus, should it be granted, would make an , interesting study -Wolfgang Nagy

- Tuesday, everitig; the $e chevran acted as host for 10 Councilmembers in CC135, to present their position and proposal conceming the entire cdntroversy surrounding the Sept. 24 closure of the Chevron, the qfficial cam-pus newspaper; published by the Federa_tion of Students. The main emphasis of the .proposal centred arotid the fairness of the firings of Production Manager, Neil Docherty, and News .Editor, Henry Hess. . They &quested those present to amend. the recent Council-approved motion for an investigation into the closure to an investigation as to whether the procedure used by the Federation against the Chevron and,its staff was fair, ie. thit a fair hearing was permitted.. ----I ‘I They% feel that such an Snvestigation, if it reveals that the: %ederation acted irhpmpefly;, sho,@d naturally precede reinstatemen’t, accordink to the formulas &hey liave presented since the beginning ; the Chevron ~ publication budget and schedule should be returned to them, and the two salarieg‘ non-students be given back-pay {or the period of time during wh3ch they received no reinuneration. The -investigation would not inelude an investigation into whether

tik charges laid by ‘the Fed&ration w&e founded. Their reasoning -is that the investigation concern-ing the closure should take place before any investigation into the reason for any closure, hitice this is the order of events in which they occurred. /Dave Carter, Council Grad Rep-resentative, tried to have the mqtion for a Council investigation tabled until after the meeting, but last S.&day’s Special Meeting of Council went ahead ‘with the motion-. to set up a committee to hear both sides of the situation. Following agreement of this by Council, the staff would agf&e to participate and co-operate with the $hnc~ CQmmission to that point, however, it would then have $0 dissolve. ’ ‘It was also stated ,at, the -meeting that a‘ ne.w “Committee of ‘Investigatioq”, comprised of university Students which the staff agreed upon as be&g unbiased could form to investigate the enti.re affair. If the unbiased conditions of this suggestion were not met, the staff woui& refuse’ to co-operate. It was not to be a committee comprised of elected student c&ncillors. .Such motions may be put forward at this Sunday%. Council meeting.

.(sportsl WEST ALUMNI WINS HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIP

“A” League Semi-Finals: On March 7, Optometry A and West Alumni met in semi-final action and the Optometrists were dropped by a 5-2 margin. March Richer picked up a hat trick for West Alumni and Ted Sanders scored twice to close out the scoring for- West. John Kemp scored both Optometry A counters. In the other A league semi-final Bad Company shutout St. Jerome’s 2-O. Bruce Warkus and K. Bain scored for Bad Company while S. Bubnick earned the shutout. ‘ ‘B” League Semi-Finals : Team Alufawhore’s unbeaten season came to an end on March 10, when they were defeated by Vl South 3-2 in the B League semi-finals. Galt scored twice for the Villagers while Herridge scored the other South marker. Dave Beason and Rossie Stachuk scored for the Alfawhores. In the other B League semifinal Conrad Grebel lost an overtime decision to the Rockers by a score of 5-4. Robinson, Holroyd, Harris, Thrasher, and Bowes scored for the Rockers. Robert Lofthouse scored twice for Conrad Grebel while L. Block and K. Dick picked up one apiece for the Bible Belt Boys. Finals

On Friday, March il, ’ the A and B League finals got under= way with the Rockers meeting Vl South .at 2:00 p.m. to decide the B League championship. The ,Rockers proved to be the winners with a 3-2 overtime decision. In regulation time, Handy scored twice for the Rockers while Bajinski and Galt replied for Vl South. ABowes scored at 9:45 of the overtime period to win the championship for the Rockers. . The A League Final got underway at 3 :30 and a partisan crowd was on hand to support the underdog, West Alumni team who upset Bad Company by a score of 3-2 to decide the title. The fans certainly got their money’s worth as the match proved to be one of the most excitingof the season. In the opening minutes of the game, it appeared that Bad Company was going to run away with the -game. They kept the puck in West’s end for the first five minutes of the game and only the magical work of Dave Henning in the West goal kept Bad Company off the scoreboard. Play evened out in the second half of the first period and each team enjoyed numerous scoring opportunities which kept the crowd on edge. Bert Keene had the best chance for West by virtue of a breakaway but Bubnick came up big in the Bad Company net to stop the drive. Bad Company had the closest opportunity of the period when Bruce Warkus hit the post on a two man break. The first period ended without any scoring by either side and after a short intermission the second period got underway. Bert Keene proved to be the hero for West by. scoring three times in the final frame to win the game for West Alumni. Bruce Warkus of Bad Company opened the scoring at 1:45 of the second period but one minute later, Ted Sanders sent Keene in alone on

Bubnick and this time, Burt made no mistake as he picked the bottom left hand corner to tie the game. Bad Company regained the lead at 14:30 of the second period when Mark -MacLeod scored on assists from Bob Ballantyne and Teminski. Bad Company’s 2-l lead only lasted for one minute as Bert Keene sailed in unassisted and tied the game for West. Two minutes later Keene sent the crowd into a frenzy as he scored his third goal of the game to seal the victory for West Alumni. At the -end of the match, the crowd poured onto the ice to congratulate Keene who was voted the most outstanding player of the game. Men’s Competitive Basketball

“A” League: In a fitting climax to a term of well played basketball, St. Jeromes breezed by the Tiny Toddlers for the Men’s IM A League Championship. In an excellent ?first half, the lead managed to change several times and the crowd looked forward to a close finish. St. Jeromes managed to edge ahead and the half ended 25-31 in&heir favour. The second half was an entirely different game, the Toddlers lost the ball repeatedly and were un= able to rebound against St. Jeromes tall forward, Shaw. The lead steadily climbed as the Toddlers ‘were unable to sink an outside shot. The ball handling of Walker brought them close to key, but no one seemed able to sink a shot from outside twelve feet. Finally settling down, the Toddlers tried to run their strong offence but could never quite manage to break home. Short flashes of brilliant play were shown, as in the case of an excellent rebound and inside shot by Frank Moskal, but these were very sporadic. In sheer desperation, ’ the Toddlers fouled Slowikowski and the other guards in an attempt to regain the ball, but St. Jeromes continued to avoid them and the game ended, St. Jeromes 53, Tiny Toddlers 45. .-- The game was sown on strategic and consistent offence against the Toddlers. strong defence, at no time, did St. Jeromes panic and lose control. It was this consistency that won for St. Jeromes both B league and A league championships. -_ In B league final, St. Jeromes B defeated the, Mists 47-40. The Mists, a relatively unknown throughout the season came on strong in the playoffs and nearly upset the favoured St. Jeromes squad. The Mists committed many turnovers and bad passes in the 1st half and- came out down 25-13. A stronger effort in the 2nd half but the Mists tied the score ‘at 38-38 with 8 minutes left but St.. Jeromes applied enough pressure in the remaining time and came away with the win. Matt Wever had 9 points for the winners. Lauri Williams, a standout all season for the Mists had 10 points. Summary Competitive

of Men’s Basketball

This term’s Men’s Basketball league comprised 56 teams and over 450 players. The quality of basketball ranged from pick-up to well-above average. A num-

ber of ex-junior varsity players kept the quality of ball excellent. There was also a championship team in the “B” league play. The Chinese Students Association travelled to Toronto to win a Chinese Student Tournament for the second year in a row. League play was not without upsets as not one of the four undefeated teams failed to reach the finals. Both “A” league division champions, The Summer Rats and Waterloo Wizards were eliminated in their first games. “B” league had some excellent competition in the finals and a number of teams with a weaker season record upsets over supposedly heard verbal abuse on the referees should perhaps stop and consider just what they would do being in the officials position. This year’s group of officials, headed by Doug Richard were more than satisfactory as they reflected the season play. Thanks also goes out to the players who play the game for enjoyment and recognize the game as simply that - a game. They are the ones who tell the winning opponent they played well and shake the officials hand, they are the very best in the league and make all the effort worthwhile. Next term? If ,you enjoy basketball, why not join .a league, basketball is played year-round and it is a great way to become involved with other people while at the same time getting some . exercise. ‘Broomball

Competitive

Tissue Tension? You bet, as the players and coaches alike took the floor to officially begin the final games in the Women’s Intramural Basketball Schedule. The first game of Monday Night’s agenda was the B league clash between Village 2 East B and Coop. I must admit, that if one was to glance over to the Co-op bench, they would certainly consider the Coop squad, the underdogs. This simply is because of their limited reserves they had to call on, which totalled “one” and the fact that some of the girls had somewhat limited experiences playing basketball. On the other hand, there was the Village 2 squad, a well disciplined and experienced team who looked rather impressive and along with their colourful fan club, seemed to dominate the court. Although Village 2 did not have my verbal support, they could quite easily have persuaded the direction on my bet, if only I could have found the local bookie. As the final score indicates, 15-14 in favour of Village-2 East

The Whiz Kids won the shoe league championship defeating Renison 1-O. In the consolation shoe league$game, The Hot Dogs led by “Scrooge” defeated Thee Team in overtime 1-O. In the non-shoe league, Coop defeated, the Wreckers 2-l in overtime. St. Jeromes took the consolation championship. Ring

Road

B, Coop did in fact display excellent Basketball techniques, most importantly, the desire to hussle in order to stay in the game. One could easily have learned a lesson from that particular game which as I see it, was simply, never underestimate a group of individuals’ determination if they so desire to obtain a mutual goal. Village 2 East B, is definitely the Women’s B League Champions, and rightfully so, but that there Coop squad deserves mentioning for they’re- the type of women that makes Intramural activities fun. For that reason, I applaud both teams for their excellent presentation of Intramural basketball. The evening included the final games for both Men’s and Women’s Basketball leagues, but the game I’d been waiting for had Village 1 East meeting the West Wildcats. To be honest, I took Village 2 East to triumph over the Wildcats but my major concern was to have a good, entertaining game. Entertaining it was, and quick, almost to the point that I was getting exhausted sitting beside Sally.’ Never-the;less, the final score was 23-15 in favour of the Wildcats but the game was balanced until the Wildcats began pressing near the end of, the game which may be responsible for the wide gap in points. Once again, the final scores were V2 East B - “B” League Champions. West Wildcats “A” league Champions.
