WaterlooU. TakesFirst Step At 4:OO p.m. last Wednesday afternoon, the Hon. Leslie Frost, Prime Minister of the Province of Ontario, officially opened the Associate Faculties’ Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Building on the new campus. In his dedicatory remarks, Prime Minister Frost expressed the conviction that graduates of the Applied Science Course would contribute much to the welfare of Canada and mankind in general. Following




entrance of the building was presented to the Prime Minister by Mr. Ira Needles on behalf of the Board of Governors of the Associate Faculties. A congenial atmosphere pervaded the entire ceremony. Officials of Waterloo College, Ball Construction Company, and Shore & Moffat’s architectural tim all 1commented upon the pleasant as1sociations and co-operation they had enjoyed during the construction of the building.

There is; a lot of complaining among the Engineers now, but unfortunately those who complain are too lethargic to do anything about their peeves. The food in the cafeteria is horrible, so they say, but who will take up a petition to have improvements made in it?

The Society is pleased to report that all the 3,2 tickets offered to Waterloo students, at half price, for the National Ballet on December 3 are sold. We regret, that because of this unexpected interest, some students were forced to pay full price for tickets. Next year the Society will endeavour to procure enough tickets that all students wishing to attend the ballet will be able to do so at a special rate.

A crowd of students from both aculties gathered outside the juilding to watch the proceedngs.

More than 250 guests attended a banquet in Seagram Gym following the opening of the building. Members of the Provincial and Federal Parliaments, prominent educationalists, and civic leaders paid tribute to the Associate Faculties. Prime Minister Frost, in addressing the gathering, outlined the development of Waterloo College, and expressed confidence in the foundation of Waterloo University. (Throughout the proceedings the institution was repeatedly referred to as Waterloo University). Mr. Frost related the growth of Waterloo to the growth of other Ontario universities, and made the interesting observation that these institutions almost invariably traced their origins to a school of theology. Dr. Hall, President of U.W.O., Father Siegfried, Chairman of St. Jerome’s College’. Board of Governors, the Chairman of Waterloo College Board of Governors, the mayors of Kitchener and Waterloo, and 0. W. Weichel, M.P. for this riding, each extended congratulations to the Associate Faculties and expressed the hope that the university-to-be would be successful and prominent in the field of higher education.



December 3rd was an important, happy and historic day Eor Waterloo. The value of additional facilities for a university should be judged fa the extent to which they improve the education program on this campus. Certainly the new Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Building is designed for that purpose.

It is a source of amazement to editors to see the majority of people accepting a situation that normally they claim they would not. It is even disheartening to them, because they know that there exists the medium for expression of opinion on the campus. This newspaper has not yet had to print anything in the nature of a criticism of any particular facet of this college. If we could say that there has been nothing objectionable it would be wonderful, but we can’t. All rumours point to the fact that there is a great deal of displeasure over the quality of the food being served in There have been charges and counterthe dining room. charges to the effect that the prices are not in line with the standard of the food. Further charges have been leveled, saying that complaining does no good. Some feel that they were treated as imbeciles for complaining at all. All these rumours, and as yet no one has sent a letter to the editor. If there is a complaint why hasn’t it been directed properly to its source. If this failed why then wasn’t it directed to the public through the paper. The most powerful weapon in this age is public opinion. Some have rumoured that it is the fault of the newspaper for not looking into the situation. This would have had little effect without the support, or even better, the demand of the students at large. In any case members of the newspaper staff wouldn’t be able to supply much information since for a variety of reasons a large percentage of them don’t eat at the Dining Hall. As we said, it is sb amazing to hear that students will allow anything to disturb them when they know that they can do something to correct the disturbance.

Dear Mr. Editor: Over the past weeks much has been said in your paper about the cast of the Purple and Gold Review “Don’t Miss the Boat’,. We thank you for your consideration. But, let us stop for a moment, just where would we, the cast, be without those who worked literally endless hours behind the stag+ In this lies the purpose of the letter. We would like to take our hats off to John Enns, the Business Producer, who, among other things, arranged for the seating, and to Bob Sherwood, our stage manager and his crew, a special handshake and a box of Aspirins for the headaches they received making sure that everything was just right on stage. Special thanks should go to two gentlemen who worked unceasingly behind the scenes, John Garrow and Bill Tremaine. Without John and Bill we would have been at a loss. We can’t thank them enough for the work they did on the planning of the stage’, the lighting and the sets. Ian Fraser must be applauded for taking the time from his busy post as Student Council President to work on arrangements and Thanks, Ian, for orchestration. giving so freely of.your talent. Finally and above all, everyone at Waterloo should bow to the Freshman and the Post-Grad stu‘dent who created “Don’t Miss; the the Boat”.

reason enough for us to lend our support to P. & G. Generally it could be said that the nucleus was very exuberant while a vast majority - well, they really were not very enthusiastic in many cases. If the show had had more assistance right at the beginning, no doubt there wouldn’t have been the headaches come final week.

Admittedly drinking can lead to grief, either in the form of the disease alcoholism or as a direct result of some one case of overindulgence; however, it is common sense that freedom to partake in something without the threat of constant rebuke and ridicule would certainly lead to less grief.

Canada is recognized as the hockey centre of one world. And indeed, this is true, for approximately 99.9% of the hockey players who have performed in the N.H.L. were born! in Canada. From the time he is able to hold a stick in his hands, the Canadian youngster begins to play hockey. Thus we are proud of our hockey prowess. In a sports world which usually leaves us out in other categories, we come out on top. It helps to give us some sort of nationalism, an all-important component in our comparatively young country, which hasn’t as yet matured to the point of having her own flag. Thus when the Kelowna Packers went to play in Sweden and Russia, and only, in my estimation, made a mediocre showing, I think we should think earnestly of what the future holds, hockeywise, for Canada as a country. Several years ago these ideas were not even raised. At that time Canada was supreme in the hockey world. But then a secondrate team from Toronto was defeated in the Olympics and sports personalities began to wonder. Russia was developing fast and something had to be done. And so they decided to send “A” hockey teams. over Senior And this met with a fair amount of success. Championships were won by the Penticton “V’s” and Whitby Dunlops. But even with Senior “A” players, the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen lost to the Russians.


There is only one solution as I see it. If we are going to send a hockey team to represent Canada, then we should send the best team or we should send none at all. Let us face the best of the Russians and Swedes with the best in Canada. Then we would have a true representative.

NORM MacLEAN Norm MacLean is a six foot 175 from Marathon, pound veteran Ontario, who played all his minor hockey for Upper Canada College in Toronto. On the ice Norm is indistinguishable from the other players until he is in possession Thus, I would advocate sending of the puck then he transforms the world champions of the into a flash of action and speed. N.H.L. over to play against EuroHe is not a player who stands pean teams next year. As far as out as an individual but is the amateur status goes, it seems to type who is essential for the sucme that anyone being paid up- cess of any team. Last year, Norm wards to $100.00 a week in proved an asset by finishing as Senior “A”. hockey does not fall one of the higher scorers on the into this category. There is only squad. a difference in meaning in the words amateur and professional in Canadian hockey -not in reality. Therefore, if we are going to send professional anyway, let’s send the best.


No one likes to lose when there is no need to do so. The Russians are improving all the time. And I for one would not like to see them come out on top in our National Sport. There is too much nationalism wrapped up in hockey, to let it become run-down. Now is the time to act, not after the damage has been done.


0 P erson

Thus when Kelowna loses two games we begin to wonder again. Will the Russians or Swedes in the winter Olympics be able to defeat the Belleville MacFarlands, Canada’s representative. If such a situation should arise, there would be a great hue and cry again. Canada’s National Sport would have another black eye.

mice 726 Last ’ Thursday the Mules’ hockey team took to the ice at the Waterloo Arena’ and promptly skated off with a 7-4 victory over the visiting McMaster Marlins. It was the first exhibition game of the season for Waterloo and they gave signs for a successful season ahead. The Mules had to come from behind to gain their first win but three unanswered tallies in the middle frame supplied the winning margin. Paul Knox, the starry Mules forward, put his team ahead at 2:17 of the first period, but three McMaster goals by Brown, Wilson and Melinoff with a .goal sandwiched in between by Jack Taylor, gave Mat a 3-2 lead. Then came the big second period. Mike Gendron picked up his first of two goals, followed by counters from Pierce and Witty and the game was sewn up. Gendron and Knox finished the scoring for Waterloo in the third and Brown tallied his second of the evening to make the final reading 7-4. The game saw 12’ penalties called with Waterloo picking up seven. At times the pace was torrid and the Mules, in general, skated around their opponents

with ease. Outstanding in this department was little Gen Hamada who was all over the ice.





The defence was weak although Weiler and Brown played well. The best%lines were that of Knox, Taylor and Files, and the trio of Gendron, Witty and McL#ean. Coach Rafferty played both of his goalies with McKee playing a standout second half. All in all it was a good exhibition and we hope a symbol of things to come.
