Phone 328-8775 MONTREAL (CP) To be, or not to be, that is the ques- the age of Aquarius just as in the ageless words of WiUiam Shakespeare. This approach to a study of discontent was inspired not by the bard but by a professor, wife and mother who spoke with compassion of the many unhappy and lonely young people striving today to "fig- ure out who they are and what they are." "I think it causes them to feel they believe in said Prof. Sheila Goldbloom. "I'm not sure they believe in nothing, but I feel they have withdrawn from the cur- rent kind of thing and need some pathways back in. "I'm not saying that what the older generation found they could care for and get in- volved in is the way for the next generation. "But to exist, to be, I think people" need to be involved, to care, to feel responsible and to feel accountable. The petite professor, wife of Dr. Victor Goldbloom, 47, who is Liberal minister responsi- ble for quality of Quebec envi- ronment, said she suspects "my generation of parents" unwittingly instilled in the young a tendency to be criti- cal but not constructive. The middle generation got the full whack of the ideas of such men as Sigmund Freud, plus industrialization with its mobility and breakdown of family life. Two world wars ravaged Europe, mother of culture, in the name of peace and democ- racy. "I think the whole thing caused us to question every said Mrs. Goldbloom, who teaches at McGilTs School of Social Work. "We weren't sure of our- selves and we reflected this in our children, encouraging them to be critical without being accountable or responsi- ble. "We are not comfortable voicing support of old values. But they are as valid as ever for the human being, right of people to have control over their own lives. Historically, this is the way people flourished and were creative." Mrs. Goldbloom was one of a number of officials and citi- zens of various ages and sta- tions interviewed in a study of the nature of discontent. Andre Normandeau, direc- tor of the criminology depart- ment at University of Mont- real, was asked whether "as an expert in your field" he felt that persons analyzing violence and revolution in the media-especiallv TV-really know their subject. _ "I do not believe in exper- tise in the field of social sci- said Dr. Normandeau. "I believe this can exist only in such fields as physics, chemistry and biology where formulas are always the same." STUDY OF VIOLENCE The professor's contention is that a sociologist can speak on human affairs with author- ity only when he has con- ducted a study on a specific matter and speaks specifi- cally about it. "Let's say I make a study of violence on television. That doesn't make me an expert on violence as such." Perhaps, then, a reporter studying discontent and viol- ence was rushing in where so- cial scientists feared to tread? Would this journalistic effort be useful? Dr. Normandeau, 29, said: "You could at least pinpoint a few things, like the fact that many people talk about dis- content but really no one knows how extensive it is, first of all, and even though many people talk about it, they don't know about it. "If the public was warned that 95 per cent of the people appearing on TV and radio talking about violence and dis- content do not really know about it, well, the public would not take for granted what is being said. They would sift. They would be more critical." Prof. Normandeau took his doctorate in sociology at Uni- versity of Pennsylvania along with an MA in criminology. GOING TO DOGS As far as Dr. Normandeau is concerned, it is a "good question" whether discontent the generations, tat greater now than in the past. The old always tended to think the young were going to the dogs. There Is, however, the big new factor of mass communi- cations. "Let's say there was 10- per-cent discontent 100 years ago The same discontent pro- jected by TV will have a much wider effect because the 90 per cent who never heard of that kind of discontent or saw it in violence, well, now they are forced to look at it In their homes." In Quebec City, Social Af- fairs Minister Claude Caston- guay questioned whether the often-used term "youth re- volt" can accurately be ap- plied in the province except in the case of a few Montreal junior colleges. "I would say today's youth may see a little further ahead with respect to the transition we're going through and worry about other problems than we said Mr. Caston- euay. "When I look back to uni- versity, we were strictly inter- ested in our studies and a good time once in awhile at a hockey game, a dance. We didn't have much concern with the world in which we were living. Well, they do at the moment. This is good." How important are French- Canadian nationalism and separatism in discontent? "Even if I am a nationalist I feel that the movement now is being used by many kinds of people for many kinds of said Dr. Norman- deau. "People have a sort of pure nationalist viewpoint in that they want to master their own destiny as French-Canadians. But if we look at all the con- testation, violent or not, that has taken place in the last 10 years, I would say at a guess maybe five per cent of these so-called nationalist events were pure nationalism." The Front de Liberation du Quebec, on the revolutionary extreme, merely used nation- alism as a weapon in the fight for world-wide upheaval. Andre Lefebvre, a 22-year- old volunteer worker with a Montreal welfare organiza- tion, came up with an arrest- ing comment: 'I think to most of the young French people in my environment, independence doesn't mean that much. It will only change frontiers, make a smaller system to re- form, something new to build from. Because Quebec if it is independent will start from a government that is not very strong. An unstable govern- ment could be moulded to the needs of the people." Considerable attention has been attracted to a seemingly paradoxical analysis by Jacques Lazure, 42-year-old professor of sociology at Uni- versity of Quebec who has studied student movements in Berkeley, Notre Dame, Uni- versity of Chicago and Har- vard, where he took his PhD. Dr. Lazure said Quebec stu- dents in the last couple of years have been exhibiting less "overt" nationalism and seem to be turning to the American pattern of a "paral- lel with its new music, drug use, communes and rejection of work, school and politics. "But now I'm a little more sceptical about added the professor, author of La Jeunesse du Quebec en Revo- lution. tant goal is to show how two cultures can live together and "hi essence build a new cul- ture." "Both cultural groups are going to have to give. I can see that in my own children. Being for the most part bilin- gual, it seems to me they've gained enormously being able to tune into two cultures, and Inevitably their children are going to reflect something dif- ferent. "I think we are desperately In need of a goal and a sense of worthwhileness and a sense of building somethingto- gether. We have here in Quebec this opportunity but I don't really think we've done very much about it." New Disneyland NOT RADICAL ENOUGH Much would depend on whether the first and second "waves" of young separatists persist in their ideas, attain positions of importance in their communities and pro- vide leadership that would galvanize youth into action. There was also the possibil- ity that some young people feel the Parti Quebecois is not radical enough. Prof. Goldbloom said the language barrier is a major source of concern, if not dis- content. "I think we've only come one mile in a jour- ney toward real communica- tion between the language groups." But member's of both groups, of course, face the basic problems of pace of change, frustration in the face of huge organizations, "of not being able to control very much." The New York-born teacher, whose children are 20, 18 and 15, said Quebec's most impor- ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Tow- ering over the flat farmlands of central Florida is the mammoth Walt Disney World, newest showpiece of a multi-million-dol- lar empire built on a scraggly mouse named Mickey. Even before the gates are opened, urban areas for 100 miles are gearing up, expecting a spillover tourist bonanza. Pro- moters predict 10 million vis- itors the first year. But many retirees and fann- ers in the area are dreading the opening. They foresee the ruina- tion of their unspoiled rural sec- tors. And gold-mine vacation spots, such as Miami, are wor- ried, fearing a drop in business and convention trade. Sun glints from golden turrets on a medieval castle commanding the Disney theme park. Be- neath, on Cinderella's balcony hands a huge sign; "Remem ber October 1." The sign is a reminder ti work crews that the opening o the vacation centr is only a few months away. In the park, elephants ant rhinos guard a croc-infeste jungle river; a giant oak sup ports the signal lanterns of Min uteman scouts; ghosts prim for goulish merriment in th Haunted Mansion; submarines plunge to the depths of sunken galleons; and the moon is only three-minute ride away. "AVORITE PROJECT "What Walt liked most was [he project he was going to uild next year but this his said Joe Fowler, i retired U.S. Navy rear admi- al who heads construction and engineering for Watt Disney Productions. They picked the site together, 15 miles from Or- ando in Florida's rich citrus wit. What will open in October is isneyland East. On the site il be five hotels, a three-mile monorail to speed guests from parking lots or overnight lodg- ings, too 18-hoIe golf courses, a mile-wide man-made lagoon for sailing, skiing, dunking or pad- dling, camp grounds and a rid- ing stable. Critics fear Disney World won't be large enough to handle swelling crowds, even though the park has an on-site five-mile entrance road leading from the highway. They foresee major jams at exit ramps, bottleneck- ing traffic. _ The section opening in the fall encompasses about one-tenth the Disney World site and will create new jobs with pref- erence to Floridians.
