LE. SAYSNOTO The question of Political Clubs again came before the S.L.E. for consideration, but the council was evidently tired of hearing about this issue, SO it went to rest early. The final decision is that the S.L.E. will not petition the Board of Governors, in a demand for the formation of Political Clubs on this campus. It seems likely that a Political Science Club will be formed in the near future, open to followers of all political beliefs. The interest shown in this club will determine whether it is practical to later petition the Board of Governors for the formation of separate Political Clubs. Poor attendance, probably due to exams, caused the S.L.E. president to open last Tuesday night’s meeting with a blast. He pointed out that members should make a supreme effort to attend, come flood or fire or examinations. He added that those members who did come should make an effort to be on time. The agenda sheet always states the time to be seven P.M. sharp, but members straggle in as late as 7:20.

FAREWELL TO THEENGINEERS A WATERLOO TRADITION THECHRISTMAS BANQUET The gloom of exam time was lifted for a while Thursday evening, when students and staff members alike enjoyed themselves thoroughly at the Christmas Banquet of the S.L.E. Opening the programme was a Boar’s Head Procession, led by a lithe court jester in a red elf costume with plenty of bells. This “fool”, Dick Day, cavorted merrily before a group of carollers, who were followed by some sack-clothed individuals carrying candles. Bringing up the rear were three chefs, one carrying the boar’s head, another a turkey, and the last a flaming Christmas pudding. They created an awesome impression as they paraded around the gymnasium, which had been decorated with Christmas trees, and candles and stars on the wall over the head table. Seated at the head table were the chairman, Am Stover, S.L.E. president, Ian Fraser, Dean Schaus, President Hagey, Dr. Reaman, Rev. J. F. Little, and their ladies. After an opening address by Am Stover, Rev. Little said grace, which was followed by the Queen.


The now starved guests then sat down to a delightful full course turkey dinner that left no one feeling hungry. Throughout the evening, Paul Berg gave renditions on the organ. Immediately after dinner, Garry Morton led the group in singing carols. President Hagey gave a message of welcome, in which he pointed to some of the other events which have marked the term thus far. The main theme of his address was the formation of Waterloo University. He told the guests that it would be a very short while until this step would be accomplished. Following the President’s speech, Ian Fraser spoke on behalf of the S.L.E. His talk was short and straight to the point. He expressed the wish that the spirit of Christmas that comes to us all at this time of year should not come down with the Christmas decorations after the holiday. And he extended traditional Christmas greetings to the guests. The next item on the pro<ramme sheet said: Entertainment . . The Trio. The Trio, consisting of Andy Bald, Dave Zeidman

and Keith Kraus, certainly did entertain to the hilt, as they mad6 like a barber shop quartet minu: one, doing full justice to familial songs and strange ones alike. Rev. Little then gave his Yule. tide Message, on the theme oJ form and fullness in the church The guests listened attentively a$ this brilliant speaker related the Christmas Story to the church oJ today. The carol singing Chat followed this was perhaps more reverend than that of before. But a lighter moment came when the Arts and Engineering Faculties exchanged gifts. Jon Creighton presented Bill Edwards with a gift thal he felt was worthy of any engineer, a monkey wrench. The latter retaliated by giving Jon 2 token of esteem, a tiny gold cup, engraved “The Champion Bull Throwers”. After such a wonderful evening, it was no surprise that many of the guests chose to remain late, and gathered about the organ to sing more carols. A good time was had by all, and the guests no doubt look forward to enjoying the same treat next Christmas.

Another quarter has passed quickly away and we are about to depart for our work assignments scattered throughout Ontario and Quebec. For those of you who are completing your first quarter I hope you have found college life all that you anticipated it to be. During this quarter we have been privileged to be the first students to occupy the new Chemical and Chemistry Engineering Building; and to see Prime Minister Frost officially open this the first of what we hope will be one of many buildings comprising the University of Waterloo. Just as important we have seen the beginning of construction on the Mathematics and Physics Building which will be completed next October. You have elected your first Engineering Society who in the short time they have had have, I feel, accomplished a great deal. Jacket samples have been ordered and should be here for approval at any time. Old exam papers have been sold and thanks goes to Dr. Stanton for helping us in this matter. An investigation and report has been made into the possibilities of operating a used book store. We hope to see this in operation in April. A great deal of work has been done investigating the possibilities of a student loan fund. Although nothing concrete has been set up regarding this fund our thanks go to Geoff Howard for giving his valuable time to this matter. The cafeteria has been dubbed “The Nucleus” by a unanimous vote of the Engineering Society. Last but of most importance a rough draft of our Constitution has been prepared and we hope that by April it will be ready for presentation to the Student body and Administration. We realize that The Cord Weekly has lacked adequate Engineering representation and we hope (Continued on page 7)

It cannot be too strongly emphasized that any student who is elected to an office, or appointed, or who volunteers to do a job, should realize exactly what he is getting into. Every class president and vice-president, every club president, should have had the foresight to see that there would be exams coming up, and that he would still be expected to attend meetings. It seems likely to assume that those who did not realize this, or who apparently had every intention of letting their duty slip occasionally, were campaigning only for a personal victory. Examinations are of course important. But at every meeting of the S.L.E, the same six senior students, including the president, have managed to show up. Last year university work is surely the most important and difficult, but they manage to budget their time so that their duties will not be neglected. The meeting was shorter than the previous one. The Psychological Society presented their club constitution for ratification. Each article evoked the usual amount of criticism and rewording, but the most newsworthy article referred to the name of the club. The addition of the “al” on the end of the first word was considered unnecessary. Consider, by way of illustration, an Economical Club. However, when the representative left, the club was still calling itself the Psychological Society. This club is open to students interested in psychology, in all faculties. The president suggested that the Campus Queen elections were not being run in the best manner, as many students eligible to vote did not know all of the girls on the list, by either appearance or (Continued on page 7)




At Christmas one is supposed to feel both light and serious at once. As an Editor we are expectled to have something to say that is just a little different than usual. We must confess to being completely devoid of fresh at this Christmas time. There is nothing we could say i ideas -that has not already been s,aid many times before; ‘certainly nothing that would be remembered for very long. What is’ there about Christmas that makes a person suddenly quiet’er than before, more personable, sensitive and introspective ? We would like to give you the r#easons but we can’t, simply because ‘we don’t. know them. Nor does anyone else have a really clear idea on this subject. This anniversary is remembered then because of some intangible feelings that affect all Christians. However there / is nothing intangible about the event that is in question: That L I was very real and this world will never be changed so much as it has been by the birth of Christ.

Another Quarter has shot by and the time hgs come to examine its trail. According to the Master Plan we moved into the Chemistry Building and with good luck construction will be finished b,efore we return. There is also a slim possibility that there will be a road to the building by then. After a quiet but lively ‘campaign we managed to elect a President, Vice-President and Smecretary-Treasurer toI the Engineering Society. The Society has held a few meetings and a list of their accomplishments would read as follows: Almost got the new Engineering ‘Jackets, Sold old exam papers and named the lunch rooms twice. Even though this list is short and contains no world shaking accomplishments, Ijcan no.t honestly extend it because ideals and intentions are not accomplishments. I almost forgot the Student office -we have a lovely large office, one stolen. table, several stolen chairs, a phonebook and enough money to buy a filing cabinet. I would like to point out that the reason ‘for no major accomplishment is not because the elected representatives did not work hard at their jobs but because the student body as a whole is dead. This has been pointed out to you so often that I will dwell no longer on it. The list of acco~mplishments next quarter will be no longer if the student body doesn’t ‘t come back to life. The paper in my opinion has been poor. This is not because the help has been poor,’ far from it, most people working on the paper have given too much. The reason for the poor paper has been poor organization, and poor co-operation betw,een the Engineers and Artsmen. This shall be corrected in April. Well, to conclude, every one elected did his best to serve , . you and you did nothing to serve him. But April is spring and in spring new life breaks forth from the dead, and until then Y . . . J.

To the Editor: ‘Waterloo has no school spirit’, quote, unquote and requote. How many times has -that- idea been elaborated upon since the beginning of this school term? As a Freshman I have’been duly impressed by this obsession - the one thing everyone gets excited abdut - our lack of school spirit. It -occurs in conversations, in grumblings from group executives who were without a group, and before our eyes every week in The Cord Weekly (the eyes of those with enough spirit to read the paper, that is). With such prolific propaganda, how can anyone think otherwise? j Of course we ha,ve no school spirit. I accept the fact, I defend it spiritedly as one of the features of Waterloo College, one thing and which makes it outstanding different from &other. universities. ‘We have nd school spirit.’ We should say it proudly. There’s no reed to shout’and get so frustrated over the fact because nothing much can be, done about it anyhow. To begin with, everyone is rather vague about the precise spirit’. My meaning of ‘school conception of it involves, a comparison. If a school is like a person, then the spirit, that intangible air which you feel as you walk threugh the halls, is like a human personality. And .we all know the basic facts about perSome peqple have sonalities. them, i.e. they are vibrant,, interesting, and alive. *Others don’t, i.e. they are dull, apathetic and dead. ‘Waterloo has no school spirit.’ And . . . we won’t have one for & few years yet. For there’s anrather lamentable fact other about personalities. You can’t change them easily or quickly. They have to grow and develop onI their own, with the influences of heredity and environment. Well, Waterloo College was born into an unexciting, but nice, little town. Named after it,‘we are like afavourite little nephew who .gets patted on the head on Sunday and ignored the, rest of the weekunless he does something naughty. reprimanded, Then he is /severely spankin.g style. Then there’s another environment factor in our personality Kitchener (who is a lot like her brother, only bigger). A good proportion of the students come from Kitchener or other sites which makes them ‘non-resident’ students. This is bad for both of us, and the main reason for our inferiority complex. Students, who live three, four or more miles away from the college miss half of college life before they even start-learning to develop socially and independently away from home, as well as intellectually. They are only in the school a few hours a day for lectures (and how much spirit can you derive from a lecture?) And they don’t have the time (when it takes. one hour each way on the bus) to come up for Glee Club or P &‘G practices in the evenings. Therefore with a stumbling block in our personality like nonresident students (and there will always be students who can’t afford to go to U of T) how can we ever have a well-developed and healthy personality? That is your problem to solve -if you don’t like Waterloo’s personality. Personally, I do. It may be dead, but I like qtiiet, ,meditative intellectual(?) peolple, the stillwaters-run-deep sort of thing. But 1please, let’s ,hear no more complaining, which shows.. an emotionally immature personality who can’t accept circumstances

On November 24, 1958, the report of the Committee investigatim f the “Crowe Affair” was publicised by the Canadian Association o: University Teachers who had formed the Committee last September . The investigation was started at the request of the Queen’s branch 1 of the CAIJT, where Prof. Crowe was working for a year. They fel t that there was the possibility that both academic freedom and aca demic tenure had been violated by the Principal and Board o:f ~ Regents of United College. The Committee formed was accepted b; the aforementioned parties at United College until they learned tha t one of the members had resigned because he had previously beer 1 engaged in discussions of the Crowe case at the meeting of the2 General Council of the United Church in Ottawa. His reason fo: r withdrawing was that his presence might give rise to the suggestior : of impairment of impartiality. Since this left the Committee wit1 only two members to carry on, United College claimed it was no t properly constituted and refused to, and never did meet with the2 * investigating body.

This incidently brings up an Graph0 -Anainteresting point. lysis can also be used to detect forgery - and is being used by many lawyers and courts in the U.S. and several in Canada. The average Joe, (like Mr. S.), believes that when he changes the slant of his writing, that he has completely disguised it. That is a false impression for although


Perrin the change of slant will blur the picture somewhat, the basic strokes and individual formations will remain the same. They can and no doubt would be detected by a Grapho-Analyst. The more experienced forger also leaves tell-tale signs which can be detected. For one example, a forger usually writes the forged signature slowly and deliberately. This will be detected by comparison with an original specimen of writing. Detecting forgery is just one facet of applied Grapho-Analysis. There are many more. Perhaps at a later date I will elaborate on others. But right now . . . on with the analyzing.

But strange enough, you are wrong. This writer is reticent, rather shy and timid and inclined towards introversion. He worries about himself and to some extent about what impressions he is making on others. He looks inwardly to criticize and I suppose it castigate himself. would be useless to say to the ’ writer of this letter to stop worrying so much about himself and his negative qualities (real or imaginary) and try to concentrate upon his positive traits and talents. This person has a vivid imagination and some literary talent. He’s the type of person that should (if he hasn’t already)

The individual likes to be physically active and since the writing shows rhythm and coordination, he is probably an athlete of some kind active in one or more sports.

For Christmas and New Year have come to mean’ a time of holiday from academic work, a time for parties and liquid refreshments and so on. A happy New Year wish might involve anything from monetary gain to romantic conquests. In the sports world, a Happy New Year might include anything from Toronto Maple Leafs winning the Stanley Cup or the Mules gaining the-intercollegiate title in basketball. But much as I would like to see all these things, personally I would rather see more important and lasting results in 1959. Much has been said lately, by the way, of criticism concerning the world of sport and its unchristian-like behavior. Ministers, priests and other men of prominence have been attacking the roughness of hockey. Also, such things as selling of lottery tickets at a large American university and quarrels between managers and players have crept into the world of sport. There is scarcely a day that one can pick up a newspaper and not see where some player has been thrown out of a game for detrimental behavior, or has been fined for breaking training rules or some other infraction. And so at Christmas time, we must, as is done in other fields, look at the world of sports and see if it can be strengthened by the Christian influence in which we live. We have to ask ourselves if the Christian principles are being applied in this field to their filllest.



Here it is, the festive season, and time to take up my pen and wish all the readers of The Cord Weekly a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. There does seem to be, however, a goodly number of interpretations as to what is meant by said wishes.

LES FILES Les Files, a returning rightwinger, is a 5’ l*O”, 175 pounder from Wallaceburg, Ontario. During his high school days he was a member of Wallaceburg’s senior championship team and one of the high scorers on the Juvenile “B” squad. At the moment he is a member of the “big” line of Knox, Taylor and Files which did such an effective job against McLes is also active in Master. Track and Field, placing first in cross-country at the annual secondary school meet, and participates in basketball.

I myself feel that there is a great deal of room for expansion. It definitely would be too much to ask for perfection but it is not too much to ask that every team, every player, on all levels think seriously of applying Christianity to better the sports world. What better place to set an example than at our own Christmas and enjoy ourcollege here ? Let’s have a Merry selves but let’s keep the true meaning of Christmas to the fore. And then, let’s make it an equally Happy New Year by applying these Christian principals to the world of sports here at Waterloo. A Merry Christmas participate in or enjoy

and a Happy Sports.

to all who


(Continued from page 1) that with your help this situation will be rectified next quarter. Our apologies go to those on their work period who unfortunately did not receive the Cord Weekly this quarter. Because of the cost of mailing and handling all those wishing to receive The Cord Weekly during the work quarter will be required to pay a nominal fee of 504 in the future. As you know the next phase of your course is just as important as the one you are now completing. It is important not only to you as an individual but to Waterloo as a whole. We are new and it is up to us as individuals and as a body to establish a reputation which we can be proud of. So remember, fellows, always give your best both on campus and in industry and on graduation Waterloo Engineers will have their reputation, they won’t have to establish it. My personal thanks go to John Bratton, Bob McKittrick, the class reps, the Administration and all those who have contributed in any way to student functions and activities. Best of luck in your exams, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you next quarter. Paul Koch, President Engineering Society.

One other matter had been tabled for discussion, but had to be postponed until more members would be present. This matter had to do with the Revisions of the Student Union Constitution. To conclude on the same note used at the beginning, lack of support from members certainly becomes discouraging when important issues have to be sidetracked until members decide that they can afford the time to come to the meetings.

EVERY STUDENT NEEDS LIFE INSURANCE!! BECAUSE you need to begin your program NOW-the student who enters his life career with a financial independence program ALREADY STARTED will, other things equal, achieve financial independence sooner - and on a higher ultimate level. NFCUS LIFE provides this “starter” at a price you can afford. BECAUSE you need to insure the investment in your education to protect those who have protected you. Every year, through death by accident or natural causes, there are students who will never return. If someone has sacrificed to help ‘you through University, be sure they are not left with expenses and loans to pay. BECAUSE only thus can you protect your “insurability.” Insurance bought now guarantees your right to permanent insurance for life regardless of changes in your health. WHY THE NFCUS PLAN IS YOUR FIRST CHOICE Remarkable savings achieved by NFCUS mass buying power an advantage gained for University students through their association together in NFCUS. Tailored for University students and available exclusively through affiliation with NFCUS. The group principle brings equal protection to NFCUS students of all ages - up to 35! Non-Canadian students are also eligible if attending Canadian Universities.

CONVERSION AGE--NFCUS LIFE Plan policies may be converted at the attained age at the date of conversion; or at the age as of the original date of issue of the policy, in which case credit will be given for ALL premiums paid in addition to the conversion credit of $2.50 per $1,000 (see below).
