ARTS AND SCIENCEINITIATIONS “Construction new building”.



“Female Frosh parts happily with trophies of a successful Initiation”.


ARTS AND SCIENCE INITIATIONS would be able to partake thereof and so forth. The speech was so relevant that no one in the c r o w d caught its significance. To crown the evening, one enterprising young miss, whose sales record had obviously gone to her head, attempted to sell his worship some toilet paper. Her luck held because apparently it was the mayor’s brand and he bought some. Tuesday night introduced a completely constructive phase of the initiation, the attelmpt to sell athletic tickets to the K-W public. Either the salesmen had a very poor pitch or the K-W citizens had a very high sales resistance because the results were not encouraging. Wednesday night was perhaps the most fun for the frosh because the list for t>e scavenger hunt was long and many of the items presented a real challenge. One item called for a freshman (double drunken points for a freshette) and from an engineer’s viewpoint, had one been there, the results were poor. There was a grand total of two genuinely sick girls and 5 or 6 unconvincing actors. One popular item was a bale of hay because a number were brought in. There then arose the problem of disposing of this cow food but it was easily solved. Some enterprising type suggested that a junior’s VW looked very much like a garbage can. Need we say mare. Pardon the pun, but the bonfire on Thursday night was a roaring success. Anything that wasn’t nailed down was tossed on the pile. At great expense

It has been almost two weeks since the completion of the initiation program for Arts and Science frosh. We did not report it before because this is our first edition of this year and no one felt like scooping his own little blurb. We are reporting it now for various reasons: We assume the majority of the frosh will be like the staff of this paper and save every issue as long as you live, so with this in mind wouldn’t it be nice to have some sort of a retard of your achievements? Your initiation will probably not be the highest point of your University career (though with some it’s debatable) but nevertheless it should have some place in future conversation. To aid your already dimming memories we submit an informal record of your experiences. On Monday night the 25th of September some 150 frosh suitably clad in pyjamas descended on King St. with a multitude of brushes and wieners. pails, Their aim was to clean the sddewalks, wash the signs and measure the wiener lengths in a city block. On the whole, the citizens were quite tolerant except for one callous type who reduced a freshette to the point of tears by crushing her frankfurter underfoot. The group was greeted on the city hall steps by the council and Mayor Meinzinger who gave a short political speech to the effect that a new brewing company was soon to be built in K-W town and that we should hope for its completion. There was also something to the effect that we




some gasoline was purchased to soak the pile. Moments later the flames were roaring skyward. The attempts to pick a queen met with failure because many of the girls thought the evening was about to have a Joan of Arc type ending. After cokes and donuts, everyone went on an excursion through the back campus and; up into thle woods. The blin!dfolded frosh said that the trees were not bad nor were the fences but those car bumpers gave one a nasty crack. The iinal phase of the program was the dance on Friday night and by some weird stroke of good luck the music was actually danceable. Fast friendships were formed and if they were not then they should have been. This perhaps is the most important role of an initiation and we feel that this end has been achieved.

On Saturday, Sept. 30, the Warriors played their first game -again& O’ttawa University. The score, 26-7, was’ not really a true indication of the play as the Warriors, due to lack of experience together, went dolwn to a 20-O deficit by half -time. A blocked kick by Ottawa resulted in a touchdo’wn and they also capitalized An early game injury to John on several Waterloo fumblles. Cruikshank and dismissal to Mike Doyle resulted in the Warriors 10~s~ of two first string tackleIs. The Warriors sholwed a much improved team in the second half and outscored the opposition 7-6. RUGGER .. . .. . . On Monday, Oct. 9, O.A.C. returned to Waterloo to avenge their loss to the fololtball Warriors by soundly trouncing the rugger Warriors 40-O. The Warriors played well but were outnumbered and outplayed by a goiod team from O.A.C.

Last Friday night at Seagram Stadium, the University of Waterloo Warriors polsted a dramatic 13-7 come-from-behind victory over the O.A.C. Redmen bly recovering a fumble in the end zone for the game-winning touchdown. The victory, besides. being the Warriors’ initial win in two outings this campaign, was their first vi&ry over the Redmen in five years of league competition. The Redmen took the lead on a 27-yard single by Pete Bright and later in the first period added an unconverted touchdown on a pass from Gil Farmer toI end Dave Hume. From there the Warriors took olver and could have won by a greater margin except for two dropped touchdown passes in the Guelph end zone. The Redmen also averted further scoring by exceptional punting by Bright - an average of 44.3 yards on twelve kicks. After the half-time break, during which the St. John’s College Girls Drum and Bugle Corps entertaineld, the Warriors finally hit the score sheet. Halfback Jock Tindale climaxed a Y5-yard Warrior march downfield by driving over right tackle from the one-yard for an unconverted major to make the score 7-? In the fourth quarter, O.A.C. recovered a fumble by Tindale on the Waterloo 17-yard line bcut Tindale intercepted a pass two plays later to redeem himself. On the next play, Bob Benedetti galloped 72 yards to the Guelph 8-yard line to set up the game-winning score.

On Tuesday evening the firlst Engineering Soiciety meetin’g of this term was held. Business was not ratified because of insufficient atteadance. Items covereld were : Advertisting anId news! coverage of initiation .activities and the Floa,t Parade on Saturday.

The representatives are Nick Hathaway, Dave Rumpel and Bill Mc Kibben. All further bus’iness was h’eld over because of insufficient atbend~ance at the meeting.

AFRICANSTUDENTS COURSE Cont’d. this fall. The students will enrol in the university’s cooperative engineering program. Employment has already been obtained for four of the six students during +fsr off -campus training per-

that we have been folrced to initiate this year as Right now only female students and :olmpletely unnecessary. ;hose studems in their final year are allowed toI have permits, and vhen the lot belhind the Engineering building is surfaced, there mill only be enough room to extend student parking to Fourth irear Engineers This seems ridiculous to1 solme when the University is sitting m about 200 acres elf land. However 25 of these acres have already seen deeded to the colleges who) are soon to join us on campus. This, plus the necessary green acres and boundary strips adds up ;o 45 acres, which brings the total acreage remaining down to 155. 3ut of this 155 acres must coNme space for the Campus Centre, so we are left with about 110 to 120 acres which we can use for Building. By 1980 there is expected to be 8,000 registered students, Jf which perhaps 6,000 will be on campus at any one time. About Eifty percent of these students will have cars, which means there will be 3,000 cars to park. Add toi this 1,000 faculty and staff cars and 500 cars belonging to visitors, and the total co’mes to 4,500 :ars. Each car Irequires about 300 square feet of parking space, ~(0 that if we were to prolvide space folr all 4,500, we would have to set aside 30 acres for parking - twenty-five percent of the total space we have for building. One quarter of the campus would be cement. Since this is impolssible we have toI lower the bolom, and now is the time before too many precedents are set. There is nolthing more fatal tlo parking than to issue permits :o mo,re cars than there is splace to accolmmodate. When the Arts building is complete it will have a lot for 30 cars-making it even larger than the lot for the Physics and Mathematics building, which holds 72 cars. Even so, some of the Eaculty and staff members will have to park in the Physics lot. This is intentional, since, besides the argument of our carefully ,vorked out figures (the above is just a sketch) there is the important consideration of the aestheltics of the campus. We are irying to dress up this area with a lake, terraces and a Campus Centre. Our campus is expected to be at least oae of the most b’eaultiful in Canada. This is so’mething to ble valued very highly. There is also the factor of cost. To asphalt any area costs $70 a car. As long as we doa’t use the available parking space over at Seagram Stadium, we aIre not. ju,stified in sIpending more money on parking. -We will obviously have to provide more space for cars, but where to plut them and when is a problem. I would personally like to see space evenltually provided so)mewhere near the junction elf Dearborn Street and Westmolunt Road, but if we built there now it would be about as popular as Seagram’s. Anolther possibility that has been thought of, is that we might be able to buy land in the vicinity of the University and devote it to car parking. I hope I have been able to give solme indication ob the amount of careful tholught that has’ gone into the planning of our grounds. Quite naturally the space and money we have to work with, plus the consideration of the beauty of the campus, coNme befo\re parking space, although the latter has received more than its share elf attention. The parking problem hasI to be fitted into the o,verall probllem of planning. I’m slure when everyone realizes this, they will co-operate fully with the University of which we are all a part. E. M.

The Advertising Bureau has need of advertising salesmen. This is a chance to meet people and can be quite rewarding to persons with appropriate interests. Also to be colnsidered in this respect is an 8% colmmission on all sales. We still need people fo’r 01u.r Circulatio~n Deplartment. This department handles the addressing and mailing of papers toI the out-quarter engineers. This, as we all know from experience, has been rather sporadic in the past. Let’s see what we can do this time. We can use more help anywhere on the paper and especially welcome anyone who can write a grammatical E!nglish sentence (preferably a coherent series of them). Last, not least, we need articulate readers;. Let us know what you think of the paper, what you feel it lacks, or even, we hope, what you like about it. The mailbox is across the hall from the Cot-ordination Department, on the s,econd floor of the Physics building.
