57 DAYS UNTIL B%ut
We have listened ad nauseum to the bleating of some of the students on this campus concerning all phases of activity here. We have been told that the paper should do this or it should do that and in most cases these people were sincere and honest in their criticism. We don’t mind criticism, after all these years we have gotten used to it and we fully expect to have to listen to many more years of the same. With the added responsibility of the NFCUS chairmanship we have had the unique opportunity to see some of the operations of other campuses. We have also heard the same sounds there as we hear around Waterloo. Apathy is apparently here to stay at Waterloo and for that matter at all campuses, across Canada. Throughout the nation we have heard the cry identical to our own, IF YOU WANT PEACE OF MIND DON’T ENTER STUDENT GOVERNMENT. We have seen many come and go in our three years and many more will follow after us when we have gone. But we really wonder if they will see it as such an ill-starred occup,ation as it presently looks to us. They will undoubtedly have their own trials and tests but we hope that they can stand up to them better than we have done. We don’t care to enter into any petty arguments with students or members of the faculty in this newspaper but we are happy to say that there are many times when we have wanted to do just that. Always there has been an honest desire to see the just thing done and when it came to the newspaper this same feeling pervaded. We feel it would be unjust to use this vehicle for our own little grievances and so we have refrained from calling attention to the various things we object to in favour of trying to take the outside view and decide where possible what the best course would be for the greatest number of people to benefit the most.
has nothing on our own Torque room unless its worse lighting. Last week during the Red Cross - SLE blood donation campaign several people passed out in the Torque room and according to the nurses it was mainly because of the temperature in there. We must admit that these people were in a weakened condition but that does not ,change the fact that the heat in the Torque room is almost unbearable at times. After it was drawn to our attention so forcibly we took note, and have come to,the conclusion that either the Arts building is heated by the steam from the washing machine because the boilers blew up during the Christmas holidays or else somebody has goofed in the heating department. One look at the people behind the counter late in the day will convince anyone that there is a real need for some disturbing (of the air, that is). How about a fan for instance, or would- we be asking for too much at one time; maybe we should just suggest that one of the engineers try to dream up something that would take the place of a fan, like one of the horns they are always blowing.
. . .
You lie, we don’t have an Arrow to shoot although we do have some people connected with it that we would like to do that to. The cancellation of the contract cannot really be argued with when we look at its cost to the Canadian people. The argument that we won’t have any protection is groundless because we don’t really have any now. The Bomarc missile will not take the place of the CF-105 but it is a start in the right direction. We thought that the 105 was the greatest aircraft we had ever seen when we viewed it last August but that doesn’t mean that we can afford to pay for it. For those of you who drive Volkswagens, you must admit that the reason is really because you can’t. afford a Cadillac. A different question is whether AVRO was justified in executing such a severe cutback as they did last week. Approximately 30 of our Engineers were affected by this move and most have no idea where to start looking for a new job. We think that the least the company could have done was to have eased this situation into existence, especially in the light of the fact that we were told last October when we visited the NATO conference in Ottawa that there was a definite possibility that the CF-105 would never be built. This is no1 the type of aircraft that the armed services want. They would prefer to have small, long range, heavily armed ground support aircraft. Perhaps this will be the next venture for the AVRO company. It would certainly be better than their lash -*,a attempt.
11ear Mr. Editor: To answer Mr. Dontley’s case against empiricism comprehensively would require both more ipace than your columns afford md more skill than I command. :n the following paragraphs, iherefore, I must confine myself ;o some general remarks which will, I hope, clearly differentiate ;he empirical approach from the theological. All “arguments” for deity are 1ultimately reducible to simple cir(:ular utterances of the following I;ype: “I believe because I be1.ieve”; “I know because I have 1faith”; “It’s true because Scrip1;ure says it’s true -therefore it’s Irue”.

Because of the theists exclusive certainty, therefore, the two part ,ies will have to agree to disagree - amicably, I hope. For the pre;ent, each party can merely state ts position clearly; and while the #heist continues what seem to me o be verbal gyrations overhead, ‘he empiricist will continue to iglore the “keep off the grass” sign In the church lawn.

ng the “propaganda disseminated )y the Engineering Society” and idd that “Like rabble-rousing thildren, some of the executives :f that body cannot see beyond <heir own importance”. This sort If language would be amusing if t were not so unfair; the pro)osals made by the Ehgineering society have actually been far nore reasoned and far less emoional than those brought forth ly the SLE. Perhaps it might be nstructive to try applying these vords of yours to the Executive If the SLE. 4) You have consistently idopted the tactics of implying hat the Engineers are against ‘union” by making statements such as “Arts vote union” and ‘Evidence seems to indicate that ;he Out-quarter is Pro-Union”. The fact of the matter is that every one is pro-union; every one .s also in favour of motherhood 2nd every one is against sin. One point on which every one is in agreement is that there should be jome sort of general Student Administrative Council. Your reporting has given very little space ;o this fact, but has concentrated In repeating the charge that the Engineers promote disunity. 5) The two main points of lifference between the Engineer.ng Society and the SLE have nothing to do with union; both favour union. However, the Arts students favour a “Central Authlrity having control of finances snd power of veto”. The Engin?ers support the more democratic concept of a central authority (no capitals) which has certain finsnces and certain duties, but which does not control all monies nor dictate on all topics. This is quite analogous to the situation with our federal and provincial governments; both control their own finances; the federal government looks after some matters such as foreign’affairs; the provincial government, however, is completely autonomous in its own sphere.

‘Vith the sports world now entering into a slack period it *git*.res me time to reminisce on some of the highlights that ‘1 %,z~e’ witnessed so far. Three events in particular come to .!&i,vrd.

We’ve had a pretty rough winter here with lots of snow and ice and whoever is supposed to be alleviating the situation on campus. There may be some excuse for the lack of snow-clearing, lack of finances for example, but when one of our little darlings broke his elbow last week and not a few of us have su&ered bruises to our dignity, I get peeved at the th”o-ught of some creature sitting in an ivory tower, doing absolutely zero to remedy the situation.

Dontly class . . ._ ay that’s a good lad! Our man iti charge of layout, left his chapeau outside the Library last week, only to have the thing lifted by some stickyfingered stumble bum. Any person knowing anything about the whereabouts of this hat can jolly well put the thing back where they found it. . . . Views . . . I have not read (at the time I am writing) the criticisms of my comments on Empiricism, but I will look for them with a great deal of apprehension under Letters to the. Editor. On Sunday, Feb. 22 around five hundred unemployed men in Toronto were’ given copies of the Labor Party’s Canadian Tribune. It is not necessary to relate how I came into the possession of one of these, But I would,like to criticize one comment in a letter which accompanied the paper. It was stated that “there should not be one Canadian without a job in a rich country like ours.” 1 think I can say with absolute certainty, that as long as this country remains free, there will be unemployment.

‘-’ Th.eO*bserver College students enter into a variety of, occupations after graduation and they do so for various reasons. Actually what they do is not as import’ant as why they do what they do. Certainly this cross section is not nearly complete enough but it does try to tell briefly what some students plan to do after graduating and why. We asked one young man why he chose the ministry as his vocation. He told us, that if we were to take a look at the world to-day, we would indeed be prompted to an occupation where we . choosk . could do the most good.. He felt that it was through God that we could find our purpose” in life. A female counterpart told us that in the diaconate she felt that she could find the greatest satisfaction that she could eSpect from life. It offered ,to her the greatest opportunity of service to man and she thought that this was where she fitted in best. Another young senior said thal he intended to go on to the School of ‘Social Work. Social Work hat so many fields and it seemed tc
Popular records are undergoing changes that some people are not aware of as yet. These changes involve more than the price hike on “78” records. If, popular .records seem to be changing, it is not without reason. Not only is the price of “78” records greater than it was, but they are on the’way out. They are to be replaced by “45’s”. This fact has me baffled because up until now, “45T’ records seemed to be in the minority, however in the U.S.A. most of the popular records are the doughnut discs. One of the reasons is the ease of storage but the main reason is the price. It is lower than that of the ‘“78’s”. The most frightening trend seems to be the increase in second rate talent. I am willing to recognize such people as Peggy Lee, Doris Day and even Pat Boone, ‘but. I can not be persuaded that Tab Hunter is or will ever be a singer, even in its loosest meaning. The idea: seems to be that

The highlight of this convention was the discussion of resolutions and recommendations of the Joint Commission composed of commissions appointed by the Eastern Canada Region and. the aMaple Leaf Region of the L.S.A.A. (Lutheran Student Association of America) on student autonomy in Canada. The students voted to sever their connections with the L.S.A,A. and to form an autonomous organization in Can.ada. Work is also underway for the presentation of a Lenten drama by the L.S.A. is varioyti churches in the win City area. It is mainly from the collections realized at these annual performances that we are able to contribute to the L. S. Action programme. In addition the L.S.A. is sponsoring mid-week evening Lenten services which are under the charge of some of the college prof essors and seminarians. These services are conducted in the seminary chapel every Wednesday evening at 6:15& p.m. from Ash Wednesday, Feb. 11 to W,ednesday, March 251 inclusive.
As we went on we found tha another young aspirant was goiq to return to College for anothe year so that he could go into thl teaching profession with a type 1 certificate. A young lady inten on the same field felt that teach ing was what she wanted to dc It was a way of serving peopl and she added, “That’s the pur pose of life, to serve others.” “I want to travel”, one youn man told us who anticipated goin out into the hard world of busj ness. He told us that there wa much to be done by educate people in the industrial field. Th problem that existed betwee labour and management neede solving. At this vocation, wher his interests lay, he knew h could do the most good and he1 the most people. Well that is what a few peopl plan for themselves after gradu: tion. May I say again* that wh: they are’ planning is not so ver important but why they are plan: ning it is.
