BESMIRCHINGCA ADA’S IMMIGRATIQN Immigration Minister Ellen Fairclough recently announced the new regulations to govern admission of immigrants to Canada. Beginning February 1, any person in any country of the world will be admissible to Canada if he can satisfy the Immigration Department on these two points: 1. That he has the education, training, skills or other special qualifications to become established successfully in Canada.
Canadians who do not brand immigrants an evil source of unemployment. Among the nations of the world Canada is relatively prosperous and a country of great potential. Human decency compels us sympathizers to admit that. those people of poorer countries who have the initiative and the desire to start life anew in a more prosperous country should be allowed to do so, but on& in compliance with the two specifications mentioned.

NEW YORK (CUP Special) - Canada is supporting Communism in Cuba charged U. S. Senator Wayne Morse February 11. Morse, who addressed the Fourth International Affairs Conference for College Editors here, told Canadian University Press president Ted Johnston that Canada’s economic trade with Cuba was “inexcusable.” He asserted that because of this trade Canada was supporting Cuban Communism. “Canada is putting finance ahead of freedom,” he told Johnston. “I’ve told Canadian parliamentarians this,” he said, “and they have been caught flatfooted. There is no excuse for this trade.” He said that every day a plane takes off from Cuba, comes to Canada and loads up with parts for machinery, then returns to the island. Morse, a Democratic Senator from Oregon, is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Latin America, Foreign Relations Committee. That is the outburst of an American politician. With examples like this around, it is not hard to see where Red Skelton got the inspiration for his ‘Senator Klaghorn.’ Criticism of’ this sort is wholly unjustified and inexcusable, it is the decision of Canadian politicians and Canadian businessmen whether or not to ship goods to Cuba or to any other nation that we may choose. What is the United States that it can dictate the foreign policy of Canada, or determine where we can sell our goods in the world markets? As far as Canadian trade with Cuba is concerned, it is all done according to the “NATO list.” This is an enumeration of various types of military supplies, machinery for the manufacture of armaments and the like, which the members of NATO have agreed not to export to Communist countries. This agreement is the main instrument for the control of trade with Communist countries by the Western nations, and there has been no evidence yet of Canada having violated this embargo. Canada trades with many nations of the Communist bloc according to the terms of this “NATO list” . . . as does the United States. Why then should Canada single out Cuba as an example, just to follow suit with the United States? As a matter of fact, we should dissociate ourselves as much as possible with the United States view about Cuba and Latin America. The popular Latin American view is that the United States is the leader of the forces of oppression, and the status quo, in Latin America. Last April’s abortive invasion and the more recent Punta de1 Este conference of the 0 A S have confirmed this view. This is not a good reputation t
to build up for Canada. The United States calls itself a democracy. If it purports to be a democracy then they will have to act as one and not as an autocracy. They accept and respect the governments of Poland and Czechoslovakia, in time they must come to accept and respect the Castro regime of Cuba. The United States must live up to its democratic pretensions, on pain of losing whatever credit it has had in the past. They say that they are different from the Communists . . . here now, with a powerful giant opposed to a tiny island, is a chance to prove that they mean what they say. Does trade with Communist countries “support” them as Senator Morse charges? Why then does the United States itself indulge in such massive support to other Communist lands? (Including billions in outright gifts to Jugoslavia?). Why then do our NATO allies buy $1,000 million worth of goods from the U S S R (trade figures for the first six months of 1960) and even $152 million from China (in the same period)? United States retaliation against Cuba is ’ no more than spite because the Cubans at last refused to follow every whim and dictate of the mighty United States. It is difficult to say why Senator Morse would make such charges against Canada. He may have been inspired by the current Liberal campaign to convince the electorate that the Diefenbaker Government has been aiding the cause of Communism all along by permitting the shipment of strategic goods to Cuba. Or it may have been just a product of his own wishful thinking. But whatever it was, Senator Morse has no right trying to interfere in the internal affairs of Canada. Were this country violating our international agreements we should expect criticism and censure from abroad, but as long as we follow our international obligations the foreigners should keep from meddling in our affairs. Senator Morse’s advice may cost nothing, but if that’s all he can ’ propose, it’s worth nothing.
N.F.C.U.S. To SponsorRed Cross Blood Drive The National Federation of Canadian University Students (NFCUS), in co-operation with the Red Cross, is sponsoring a nation-wide blood drive on or about February 14th. Inter-faculty and inter-university competitions will stimulate this drive, run by committees on 38 Canadian campuses. There can be no direct inducements to give blood, Co&d. on Page 4

NUCLEARARMS FOR GAElADA The defense of Canada depends today on the collective security of NATO more than any other mechanism in the world. If NATO suffers a set-back so do we; if NATO scores an advance, our future is that much more definite. The post-Sputnik years have seen an alarming resurgence of Soviet military potential, so that today their nuclear strikefirst ability is probably as great, perhaps even greater, than that of the United States. In view of this, NATO is going to be faced with increasing challenges and involved in retreats, surrenders, and abandonment of principles and freedoms to Soviet force, unless the strength of NATO is raised enough to be able to defend ourselves. To do so every member nation of NATO must be reads to assume their obligations, and contribute as much to the defense of all as the group protects the individual member. The defense strategy of NATO is based on the use of tactical atomic weapons. No units involved in this defence plan, as Canadian troops in Europe are, can hope to make any worthwhile contribution to this defence unless they are equipped with the proper arms. It is analagous to sending a man out with a club for defence against a man with a highpowered rifle who is determined to kill him. Canadian units must have the proper weapons for defence, and at this time this can mean only nuclear arms. The same holds true for the air defence of North America, only nuclear weapons can provide any substance of resistance. It is time that this issue ceased to be a political football. Either we commit ourselves to a defence of our way of life, or we abandon this and beg protection of a benevolent (we hope) super-power. If the decision is made to defend ourselves, we must accept fully and without selfish reservations the commitments of a collective defence policy. This will involve, besides making profits from the raw materials supply for nuclear weapons, the maintenance of a component of the nuclear deterrant of NATO. The argument is made that Canada’s refusal of nuclear arms can make a greater contribution to the cause of peace. This is ridiculous. This is to suppose that the Soviet bully is more likely to be impressed by a weak and unarmed Canada, than by a Canada that has the nuclear capabilities of its own defence. This is to suppose that the nations of the world will have more respect for a nation afraid to defend its own ideals, than that of a nation confident enough in its own way of life to consider it worth preserving. This is to suppose that Canada, a mite beside the super-powers that we are. trying to influence, is going to have an influence in managing their affairs when they know that we cannot manage our own affairs (unemployment, economic recession, Coyne affair, B.C. Electric grab, Columbia River fiasco, etc.). Morally, there is no reason not to have nuclear weapons. Practically, since we are spending $600 million on nuclear :,weapons carriers, we must have the proper war-heads for these to be effective. This means nuclear arms. The time has come to decide whether or not Canadians still have the courage to defend ourselves, or whether we shall set the example in international affairs of begging for mercy. What shall it be?. The True North Strong and Free? or The Chicken North, Scared from Sea to Sea? ’ Theodore A. Rushton
SOPHOMORE SWING Something I would very much like to see here at Waterloo is a dance put on entirely by members of the lower years of Engineering students. Fpe:ifically! I would like to see a semi-formal dance, perhaps less ambitious than the Engineering Week-end, put on by Engineering years I and II. A good time for such a dance would be at the end of the second week of the summer term. This particular week-end would be a good time for such an event in that it would not clash with the summer Engineerng Week-end, and it would
also come at a time when year I students were familiar enough with their surroundings to be of some real help. I believe that such a dance would be of value in that it would provide valuable experience in organization for the lower years, as well as giving them an -opportunity to become involved in the planning of such an event without first having to crash the sphere of activities of studenta from higher years. This of course is merely a suggestion, but one I think which would be well worth investigation. W. Schneider
LETTERS TO Winter THE EDITOR The Waterloo Recreation Commission is sponsoring a series of free Sunday evening concerts featuring the Kitchener-Waterloo All-Star Concert Band and a variety of special guests. Last week’s guests, all from the ‘University of Waterloo, were the Rehearsal Orchestra, a modern jazz trio, and the Male Chorus. The first two groups were quite competent, the third was not. The obvious embarassment of the entire audience indicated that this is not just a personal opinion. We find it difficult to understand why any musician would allow his name to be associated with a group so obviously unready to appear in public. We hope that the next time this group appears in the name of the University it is adequately prepared. D. S. Lavery 5A Chem. J. Frost, 1A Dear Editor: I have noticed the comic flurry of religion and ideology that has occupied the recent issues of your journal of the intellectual community. I thought that before a band of Jehovah’s Witnesses, or Father Divine made the scene, perhaps you would allow me to fuel the fervour with the debut of MISA.

I feel that the time -has come to explain the lack of ideas behind MISA of Morals and Indulgence Seekers Armament. It is not a nonprofit sect, a new beverage or a new faculty at WLU. It is something for all men who will absolutely not compromise on being selfish, bigoted and ignorant. We speeialize in renting morals and indulgences to all men everywhere, above colour, creed, or class and even to dead people, the reaEZy dead. For as our great founder Melvin Cwosnoski has said “When Towers have a sale on Japanese students, Mrs. Nixon and I buy two hundred of the best rioters.” I asked myself “Why not indulge in a little MISA? The tremendous renaissance changed my life and altered my thinking enormously. I saw MISA’s plan for all mankind transfusing new spirit and courage to the fear of eventual victory over sin. For “all men shall know the true joy of good living when they cast the fir& Babylonian wine cup.” Typical was out last meeting under the direction of Octavious the V, and attended by Tex Ritter, the great Marshall Zott, Prince Ale xichechevizkyinsky, and Wong va der Woon U Too. We decided that whereas MISA was a boon to all mankind, we would suggest that once deciding whether a temporal and temporary punishment was a partial, plenary, panitary, public, or plain penance, they read Dr. J.

“THREEFQR The Graduation N EVENING” A Graduation Ball Com-
Everyone has heard at some time or another of a rape victim who finds herself pregnant as a result of the rape. Usually the girl does not want to have the’baby and yet she is forbidden by law from having an operation to stop her from having the baby. What can she do? She can unwillingly have the baby or try to find some’ person, trained or untrained, to perform an illegal abortion. Is this fair to the girl? Abortions are now allowed only for reasons of danger to the life of the mother-to-be. But the laws forbidding abortions make doctors leery of performing legal abortions except in extreme cases. Another all too familiar story is the one of a young girl who finds herself in trouble. Certainly according to the morals of Western society she has sinned, but should she be forced to pay the awful price of having a child out of wedlock? Should she be branded as a girl who has had a baby and has been forced to live in shame? Guilt feelings and emotional problems can ruin her future life. There are many who would say yes, passing off the case as something that does not concern them; but imagine if that young girl were your younger sister. One of the most unfortunate occurences in our society is the so-called “shot-gun marriage.” Here, couples who are not in love are forced into marriages which don’t work. Both husband and wife feel they are trapped and tend to take the blame out on the cause of their trouble, the child. Even if the couple were in love and were planning to get married, there is the problem of the nine month counters and the claims of premature babies.
In many of these marriages the husband is forced to go out to work and discontinue his education. But if the unwanted child could be avoided, these ruined or damaged careers and lives could be saved. Some married couples either cannot afford or do not want another child and while birth control methods are effective they are not infallible. . These cases and others cry out for the legalization of abortions. It is obvious that many people are going to protest legalized abortions on the grounds that this will be committing murder, according to their religious beliefs. This is open to debate and I do not feel that these people should be allowed to rule those who do not share their views. Another argument that will come up is the st.ory that abortions are very dangerous. This is a fallacy if the abortions are carried out under normal surgical procedures . . . Statistics from Sweden and Japan will support this point. Although it may not be widely known, abortions are quite readily available in Toronto and probably in the other large cities. They range from cheap ones for less than $100, performed by possibly a waitress or some other person, to $300 or more for an abortion perfomred by a doctor. The only way to stamp out these illegal abortions, which are in one ease very dangerous and in the other case exceedingly profitable. is to have the laws changed to legalize abortions. This would hurt no one and help a great many. Paul Copeland

showi L Louise Maggio juz what is the proper gesture. When the curtain opens on “THREE FOR AN EVENING” Thursday and Friday, March 1st and 2nd at Waterloo Collegiate it will disclose the results of manv weeks of intensive rehear& by the performers. As the title indicates the evening will consist of three presentations, two dramatic and one mu& ical. Opening with the one-act ALL WHO Play9 “NOT GRIEVE” the evening proceeds with an INTERLUDE featuring the various musical groups at the University, and closes with the comedy, “THE LAST CHAPTER.” Jack Blacklock of Toronto, author of the first play, adds the quotation, “Not all who grieve are sad” as a programme note to his play. The locale is a small mining town, the characters exhibit some of the peculiarities and eccen‘cricities of the most unusual smalltown characters. The cast includes: Doug McIntosh, Marybeth Boon, Sally Bennett, Anne Brubacher, Chythia Chapple and Bob Schiedel. Featured in the INTERLUDE will be: The University Chorus, The Barry Wills Trio, The Undergrads, Bruce Koepke, Baritone, Bill McLelland, Pianist, and the University Glee Club. “THE LAST CHAPTER” by Anne Honeysette of Calgary, concerns a young writer who has the astonishing ability to write all but the last chapter of his novels, is plagued by every Tom, Dick and Harry, as well as his wife, as he tries to complete his latest novel. The play corned to a rousing conclusion with the completion of the “Last Chapter.” The cast: Terry Jones, Louise Maggio, Terry Boyle and Bob Gaunt. The dramatic productions are under the direction of Dr. Alvin I. Dust and Professor Stone. Musical presentations are being prepared by Mr. Paul Berg. ,The combined DRAMA and MUSIC COUNCILS are sponsoring the event. Tickets are on sale at the BOOK STORE and the office of ADULT EDUCATION, Room 226, Physics Bldg. Members of the casts and the musical organizations also have tickets.

mittee has been organized by the graduating students of 1962, and to ,date three meetings have been held. A geat deal ‘of time has been spent to ensure that this occasion will be a memorable 3ne. The following people were chosen to represent the various interested parties: Nick Pocrnit: (Chem. Eng. Paul Siemens (Civ. Eng.) Barry Wills (Elec. Eng.) Bill Lennox (Eng. Phys.) Merv. Lumley (Mech. En. Julia Morton (Arts) Beth Koch (Science) Pat Nowakc (St. Jerome’s Paul Feth has been electec as chairman of the committee. The chief topic for debate has been attire. After serious consideration it has been decided that the Graduation Ball will be formal (i.e.. tails for the men and short or long formals for the ladies). Thg chief reasons behind the decision - to go formal are as follows : (a) a ball, by definition, is a formal affair. (b) the difference in rental prices between tux and tails (about $2.00) is insignificant when compared to the total cost of the event. (c) it is customars for the leading Canadian universities to’ specify formal only and since we are setting a precedent this year for other graduating classes to follow, the general feeling is that we
Ball might as well begin in style. (d) we expect considerable publicity coverage of this event and wish to create a good first impression. It has been resolved to sell ticket options well in advance of the event. These options, costing five dollars will be required to buy a ticket when they are available, and will go on sale through graduating class reps Monday, Feb. 26. They will be on sale for two weeks only. The reason for this is to give the committee an accurate estimate of attendance at an early date, so that the multitude of planning problems can be more easily solved. The following items have been decided: Location: The Ball Room of the Coronet Motor Motel, Victoria St. North, Kitchener. It is completely new with accommodation for 600 people. Banquet : Ticket prices will include two lavish meals befitting the occasion. Formal Rentals: The Attire Committee has received very favourable quantity discounts from a leading local clothier. .Orchestra: The Entertainment Committee is finalizing plans this week for an orchestra.

White Hat TO Nikita
CONTIWENT OF COIITRASTS Cont’d,
The Debating Society of the University of Alberta, Calgary, is venturing into the field of personal international relations. The society is planning to send a white Stetson, smybolic of the city of Calagary and Western cordiality to Nikita Kruschev, Premier of the Soviet Union. Enclosed with the hat will be a message expressing friendship and brotherhood with the people of the Soviet Union. The hat, to be sent early next week, has Mr. Kruschev’s initials engraved in gold on the band. The UAC Debating Society, one of the most popular and wellknown organizations on campus, follows the European tradition of having a period for private members’ business prior to each of their weekly debates. At this time, members often bring up matters outside of the usual interests of the Debating Society. It was as a matter of private members’ business that members of the society decided on Friday, Feb. 2nd at a regular debate to send the hat. Mr. Robert Haley, second-year education student, made the original proposal which was apg;ozd unanimously by the .
There are activities where Europeans must rely on African labour, and Africans are at times willing to serve or can be induced into signing , a contract. In the setting up of native administration, the system of law to be applied must alwavs be a combination of Native custom and European principles of justice, fitted to the needs of the native society. Perhaps in this area can be seen a glimpse of the correct path for future action - African and European working together for the benefit of the former, not for the glorification and reward of the latter.

A freshman can become a member of anything from the ’ Communist Club to the Tercentary Society,’ which exists I , ,’ “to uphold all rightful mon_. archy”; @om the Humanist ‘: Group to. the League for Christ the King; -from the ’ Classical ‘Society to the Pi G. ,’ ’ Wodehouse Society, “which exists to entertain its .members.” The most important undergraduate organization is the Union - the Oxford - , Union Society, which is ‘the : d world’s most famous debat- . ing club (the Canadiati Senate aside). It is expensive to i’ join the Union - about $16 ‘a year - but most freshmen t do join. . ,. Not only does it offer \ debates, but club facilities as well as a lounge, a bar, a . dining room and so on. Debates are held . each t‘ ; Thursday night, and the debating hall, which holds about 500 is generally packed.

ers I, there are always. two guests - usually noted figures in public ’ life. Nehru spoke in the Union last academic year, and Harold Macmillan, himself former member of, the Union’s executive, was’a guest in recent years. Ambitious undergraduates make a point of being heard in the Union, and set their sights on election to one of the executive positions.. It has often been said that the presidency. of the Oxford Union is the surest way to a cabinet ppst in thiscountry - m-any of Britain’s leading pohtlcal figures in the past century faced their first cries of “Shame! Shame!” on the Union floor. . Along with the host of extra-curricular activities, I mention people and studies as other sourcesof Oxford’s vitality. A much smaller percentage of young people attend university in Britain than in Canada and one finds a more intelligent undergraduate population as the result. This is especially true here at Oxford, since it and Cambridge are the ,most selective of the universities.’ Of every five schoolboys writing entrance exams to Oxford, only one manages to get a place and only a small proportion of the country’s youth can even think about writing these exams. Therefore, undergraduates here are on the whole more impressive intellectually than undergraduates in North America, where the tendency seems to be to let as many people into university as space will permit, and then, fail *out ‘those who are inadequate. On the academic side, one gets the feeling here that one is at the centre of things. Lists of new books on acadepic subjects printed in this country almost always include several by Oxford dons, and many of the university lectures are given by top men in the various fields. What is the attitude, of most undergraduates here towards the university? Overs‘eas students aside,, the fashionable attitude here is one of cynicism and depression. ~ ,I Typical. comments describe Oxford as “a shadow of its former self” and a “sordid place.” It is the thing for undergraduates to be miserably unhappy. They must be tired of life.

Carnegie and R. Kinney each putting in one. Ray Kanerva again picked up the Warriors only goals. The games, however, were not as bad as the scores would indicate but a few defensive lapses and some hard screen shots by Queen’s pucksters put the old pellet behind Bob Judd several times. The Warriors carried their own share of the play but just couldn’t seem to beat the 1 Gaels’ goalie -who always seemed to be in the right place at the right, time. The Gaels proved to be -a fast skating, hard hitting club and tempers grew rather frayed at times. In intra-mural hockey; L.
