I feel that John Braun is the man for President of Student Council. I am positive that John has the ability and the desire necessary to do the job that needs to be done in the coming year. John Braun is a second year Honour Science student ma joring in Physics and Chemistry. He certainly is a hard worker both in his studies and in his extracurricular activities. After twp short years at the University John has an impressive record of service in student activities. He has had two years of experience In student government a. Science Representative on Student Council. He is at g;;;?nt L Chairman of. the Building Union Comkittee which is working on ideas ior the Campus . Centre. In addition John is the 61-62 Vice-President of the Science Society. I have observed that John takes 1 ab&tijL;ew?l Y,. ta! kv. I imgq&@-’ &n and the ability ti, tiake‘ decisiotis. He also knows how to encourage others to take responsibility. In other words John Braun is a good leader. Our Student Council needs a president who can take leadership. ‘ John has been active out’ side of student government as well. He ;:::~.s Chairman e of the Christmas Banquet Committee in 1960 and 1961. In this capacity he was responsible for the planning and organization of the Banquek Anyone who attended the Christmas Banquet

I will not deny that th.ere is a certain amount of personal glory in being elected as head of the student body; however, if your Student Council president is a good president, the personal glory is lost in his desire to serve you, the students, as well as he can. You should know that such a desire is part of ‘both Dave and -me. I assure you neither of us, whether as a successful candidate ‘01 as a defeated one, will be inactive in student affairs. It is up to you to decide which candidate will be most effective as S. C. president. Your decision will most likely depend on each candidate’s experience and past actions. Some of my interests have already been presented by my campaign manager. Allow me, however, to mention that, had time allowed, I certainly would have been active in more of the student organizations. The question now is: “What would you like to see Student Council do?” Based

He is also a sportsman, having played on the championship University Volleybti*ms : One &n reahifnji, see th& John Braun is interested in all phases of student activities. Since the ‘function of Student Council is to coordinate and stimulate student activities, its president must have a keen interest in these. I invite you to examine John’s past record of service and his ideas for the future. To me they say one thing: “John Braun is the man for President!” I am sure? that you, the students, will come to the same conclusion. Malcolm Cock, Campaign

on my affection for the University, and concern for student needs and activities, I present the following platform : 1. I wish to see a ‘speedUP’ in the planning and building of our Student Union Building or Campus Centre (as you will). 2. More publication of Student Coullcil business is definitely in order. 3. Student Council must lead the way in activating student interest in student affairs. 4. We, as a student body, contribute a considerable amount of money to NFCUS central ofice. I’m sure that our stpdents can* receive benefits from this association. 5. Either directly or indirectly, our S. C. should sponsor debates centred on controversial topics. Let us not be a University .with no opinions. ‘6. Our University is young, With proper direction, sup Cont’d. on PC&p3f%

erations. ’ This philosophy takes considerable patience and the students do make mistakes. With the proper training they are capable of much more than we often realize, particularly where their own activities are concerned. My own personal attitude is often disputed and argued but I continue to ba.se most of the Union’s activities on its foundation. It is simply this, ‘With increasing enrollmerits, faculty-student rations, etc., the personal contact between the average faculty member and the individual student is often lost or at least decreased. The students see their professors from eight a.m. to five p.m. in most cases or may have infrequent contact with them at other hours. In order to fulfil1 our obligation of education the whole student, to life as well as in the academic pursuits we must provide some educative process during a portion of the remaining 15 hours each day. To me a Student Centre does this with its many activities, boards, committees, etc. If it can continue to educate the student, however subtly, after 5 p.m. it is performing its role. How you go about achieving these ends of course depends on many factors. I feel it can be done best by letting the students do it themselves, with all the

Re: Evening -111Attended. I should like to begin by saying that I think your criticism of “Three For an Evening” was a fair one. However, even though the criticism was an “amateur” undertaking, I must take exception to three points: 1. Whatever was meant by “Keep climbing, Alvin . . . “, escaped my powers of perception. To say the least the remark was in very poor taste; it has, rather, a taint of gross disrespect. Dr. Dust has a Ph.D. It should be self-evident that even in the most informal atmosphere, “sir” would be a proper form of address unless another was specifically invited. This is common decency. I feel that an apology is warranted. 2. Doug Macintosh did a fine job & a very difficult role as Ian Mackay and I feel he deserves spec’lfic mention. 3. “At the risk of feeding a monster ego . . . “; as far as I am concerned, this is another attempt at humour that never quite materialized - The gentleman with the most monstrous ego of them all was the one who wrote the article. As to the choice of plays, the Drama Council was limited by a lack of funds, ($200 was the total amount available), which had to cover the cost of the +-s, (meagre of necessity) pl.Olting of tickets, royalties, and sundry incidentals such as movers, electricians, etc. J. Bryan Down, Arts II - Drama Council President

of good taste and informality by referring to a professor on campus by his first name and in a rather flippant tone and for this I apologize. I can see that the use of the first name could be construed as disrespect, but I can assure Doctor Dust that no disrespect

Dear Mr. Editor: Two weeks ago the Coru&aeus, a great deal of ink was used in explaining just why a Student Centre w&s indispensable. Apparently, enormous advantages would derive from bl.lilding such a Centre; we would obtain “School Spirit.” I submit that, +at the present time, building of a Student Centre would be absolutely unjustified. I attended “Three for an Evening” presented by the University Drama and Music Councils. The performances were excellent; Marybeth Boon gave a sensitive rendition of a difficult part in the tragedy; the musical numbers were well done; Terry Jones and Louise Maggio led a fine supporting cast through a hilarious comedy. Yet attendance was very poor; the students of the University iwere not even interested enough to &urn out and support their fellow students. Indeed, the Corvphneus, displaying a lack of responsibility that is rare among student newspapers, did not even write up an article about the forthcoming show; most student newspapers would have done their utmost to publicize the show. The only conclusion I can draw from such facts is that the idea of a Student Centre is being pushed by a small but vocal minority. When the students display enough University spirit to support their own show, when the Corgphneus begins to act in a mature manner as a Unishall have some ‘Concrete evidence that there~ is need for a Student Centre. Yours very truly, R. G. Stanton Ed. Note: “Lack of Responsi&lity” is a phrase which sh.ould not be used lightly. If you check, Dr. Stanton, you will see that in the issue before the plays we devoted one entire column plus two pictures to the publicizing of the performances. As to views on religion, if the discussion of such a topic embarrasses you, I do not believe that .you are under any obligation to read this paper.
