THURSDAY 23rd JANUARY

Elections are to be held next week for student council reps from the three faculties, After three postpone&nts for nominations there are finally enough nominees for z+ contest. In Arts there are four candidates: Mary Mixer, Pat Hergott, Barry Housser and Gail Rappolt. All students with a yellow card proclaiming that they are registered in the faculty of Arts have the privilege of casting their ballot 4 for two of the above four. _ In the faculty of Science, Dave Monk has been acclaimed ai he wbs the only person nominated living off campus. However, there will be a contest between Jim Mitchell and Neil Arnason. All those people in science are eligible to vote for their second rep. The Engineers have only nominated two people and thus they have been acclaimed to their positions. These are Peter Barnes and Art Dawson. Remember January 23rd - the date that determines whether the students ,--- on this campus really give a damn about their student council - it is already obvious that’ engineers do not.

PROF. TALKS Perhaps there are a few students on campus who have not, by word of the grapevine; heard what Prof. Talks are. For this term the S.C.M. has planned series of these ta&s to be held every Thursday from 12:001:OO. All of these will be held in room A-246 unless further notice is given. Prof. ta&s are planned so that students may have the opportunity to make the usual dreary lunch hour, experienced by most students, an interesting and stimulating hour. Professors are invited to give a talli on

The talk itself is only’ a few mintites ip duration, and if successful, it should be the stimulus for a good discussion.

Why don’t you come out to the next Prof. Talk, Thursday, January 23 when Mr. Brod&r will be the1 guest. You never can tell, perhaps you will make it a permanent date. See you there!

These symptoms are almost universal, and the number of nervous breakdowns, suicides, skin rashes and others disorders is increasing annually, and at a greater rate than the student population increase. Our educators, while happily encouraging education’s new popularity, and vigorously improving educational standards, are ignoring the antiquated examination system and its resultant ill effects. Examinations are not part of life. Never, outside of school, will an individual have to sit at 8 table and spout stored up knowledge for three hours. Why then must he do{ so in school?

The Globe & ‘Mail today carries an article from your student news paper ‘comparing Socrates to’ Christ, written by one John MacDonald which proves the truth of the assertion that a little learning is a dangerous thing and that Mr. MacDonald is still wet behind the ears. I wonder if he ever heard of the last words of Socrates uttered during his famous soliloquy to his students as he was expiring. For the benefit of Mr. MacDonald they are reported as “Gosh, All hemlock.” ’ A. J. Reynolds, (Toronto) Dear

The CORYPHAEUS

Dear

Sk

I am a 27.year old Canadian of Greek descent, and was quite stimulated by your article appearing in the “Montreal Star” and dated December 24. I am obliged to agree with you 100% (per cent) on your feelings towards the hypocritical manner (you mention “Pagan Festival” and the effects of liquor, etc.) in which Xmas is celebrated today by some citizens. I disagree strongly however on everything else that you had to say. It is MAN and not God who is con-. tinually prostituting religion to serve his own personal ends. Your attack should in my opinion be directed not against the human warmth that is in Christ, but against the merchants, etc. who brazenly exploit him at every given opportunity. From a fool, Christopher Cumas, (Montreal)

K-W

Record)

The University of Waterloo has gotten a good deal of pub licity, albeit hardly the kind i wants. out of a editorial whicl appeared in the institution’s stu dent newspaper, the Coryphaeus That’s about ali it got, for the editorial was not likely to bring enlightenment or inspiration tc anyone. It was a tasteless debunking piece on Christmas, echoing the glib critiques of the smart modems who imtigine they are only proving how shallow they are. / Traditionally, ur&ersity students are expected to question everything, and it would be unfortunate if they didn’t. It would be surprising, too, if editors and writers in student publications did not express unorthodox opinions on contentious subjects and issues. This is a privilege that is one of the foundation stones of democracy and it won’t suffer by being exercised with relish and enthusiasm. However, there is ‘one sin which cannot be tolerated in this type of effort. This is the sin of tastelessness,of crudity, of being, in essence, boring. That is, unfortunately, just what the Coryphaeus editorial was. Where ‘it should treat its subject with tact, with wit and sensitivity, and above all with some sense of literary style, it has failed to do so. This is its great fault, not its challenging, even offensive tone, not its attempt to prove that society today is made up entirely of dupes of commercial enterpren+rs and advertising salesmen. ‘This is real cause for worry on the part of those responsible for the. . education of young Canaaians.

To the Editor: I am writing in reference to an editorial, Crude, Tasteless, Boring (Dec. 26), which was an effort to pan the editorial appearing in the Christmas edition of the Coryphaeus. Be it here noted: I was not attacking Christ, Christmas,’ Soccates, philosophers, churches (musty or not), people without oven timers, liquor, merchants, nor pagan festivals. I was attacking the people who go through life with a hypocritical outlook. I would have let your comments slip by but I dislike people who throw stones while sitting in glass houses. If you care to read something boring, sir, try , rereading your effort-or could you bear to? I could have done a far better job of planning the editorial even with my lack of “literary style.” Take a look at Scott Young’s column sometime; you (and l) might learn a few things. His swat at my editorial, though anmisinterpretation, other was qsiite amusing. I suggest in the future, sir, that before you attack other people’s writing, you try to, pep up your own. JOHN MacDONALD


Dear Sirs: This letter is directed specifically to the Editorial by Mr. MacDonald in the “Birthday Special” edition of the Coryphaeus. Mr. Macdonald deserves a “thank you” for, attempting to provide a conscience for society and for expressing his thoughts on the evolutionary product of Christmas. I wish. to say; how~ ever, that his editorial impresses me as being somewhat ‘hollow; it seems to lack any significant research or insight and completely misrepresents Christ and Christmas. He has ignored the segment .of society for whom Christmas has a particular and honourable meaning. I suggest that he has betrayed his university by being ‘intellectually dishonest. - Allow me to proceed. The Christian believes that Jesus was and is God. He believes that God chose to reveal himself in the form of man and to suffer at the hands . of, man. The Christian therefore sets a certain season of the year aside to rejoice and celebrate this relevation - and here I am led to Mr. Macdonald’s second unscholarly omission. Granted that Christian history reveals the adoption of some pagan celebrations and reveals also that Christ has not been properly represented by some who have come in His name, yet, for the Christian, Christmas is a joyous and meaningful celebration. But the Christian cannot and must not force his morals on nonChristians and many so-called “Christians.” The Christian Church, is therefore unable ,,to prevent people from adopting the ‘$elebration” part of Christmas and applying unchristian morals to produce a “pagan fes, tival;” There are’ many people who have taken time to. meditate in silence and search ‘fdr the meaning of Christ’s birth into the world. They have found a different “spirit of Christmas” than th& which comes out of the “pocket and out of a bottle.” It is my wish that the right people may be shocked by Mr. MacDonald’s editorial and that more people may take time to search for the true meaning of Christmas as I am convinced it exists.

A person like that is only trying to save himself embarrassment and. shoe leather but to bill himself as “coloured boy” is to take a gaint step backwards to the days of “Yassuh Boss” and other such phrases which earmarked “nigger” servitude. “Negro” is the word the man was looking for, Negro is his race and not the disgusting and degrading euphemism “coloured.” , \ * * * >)c There I was sitting in the toilet reading D.

The executive of the Students’ Union at the University of Ottawa plans to fight the Administration’s refusal to pay for lighting, ’ heating and water in $the two Union buildings. In a letter to the Assistant-to the Rector in charge of student iffairs, the President of the Students’ Union explained their attitude. According to “The Fulcrum,” the student paper of the University of Ottawa, the Rector said that he would not reconsider the matter. However, Ithe Students’ Union is still quite firm in its decision not to pay for these utilities. “We’ll have the electricity turned off before we pay the bills,” were the words of the Acting President of the Union. Bill for the muchneeded utilities have been coming in regularly to the Union but are merely being filed. The executive of the Students’ Union maintains that it will not re-consider its stand either, and will see the Committees operate in the dark and in over-coats before it gives in to the Administration. At UBC two girls have taken up pip? smoking,‘to the extent that they are even contemplating buying-pipes with jewels on them. Men’s comments have been: “I don’t mind as long as they don’t start growing beards,” “ I think it’s a good idea, and shows great individualism,” and “Personally, I don’t care what they smoke, as long as they take them out of their mouths at the appropriate time.” The President of the Non-Smokers’ Alliance’ in Canada said: “We disapprove of smoking in any form, but if people must smoke, it might as well be pipes. At least it makes the habit look funny.” Professor Donald Sampson said he thought they were doing it because they, think it’s smart, and will attract attention. “Why do girls wear lownecked dresses?” he asked. He could think of no deep or Freudian reason why ‘they should rsmoke pipes, but iemarked: “I would just , . like to meet some. of them.” \

The problem of accommodation for Utrecht students has now become so pressing that it has been decided to ‘set up an estate of approximately 600 caravans. A manufacturer from Ede has constructed a caravan< specially adapted to, meet student requirements. The authorities at the University of Utrecht, which is responsible for the accommodation of students, were enthusiastic about the model. The transportable studentroom is about 4 yards long .and,:nearly 3 yards wide. Its walls, floor and ceiling .,are insu1ate.d with foam rubber. The outside 5,valls are constructed from steel plates. The caravan has two windows. Included in the fittings are a w&g, desk,. book shelves, a wardrobe, a cupboard, as%11 as:-a stove, a desk lamp, and a cooking ring for brewing tea, etc. Two arm-chairs can,be converted in one movement into’ 6 ft.. 3 in. bed. There will-be a central kitchen in the caravan estate. The purchase .pr=ce for a fully-equipped student caravan is said to be about $1,000, the rent for a ten-year lease is about $13 per ‘month, and for a fifteen year lease, about $11.

This was a film which. I did not enjoy, but did definitely appreciate. Perhaps if you believe that appreciation implies enjoyment - I did enjoy it. In order to qualify these obscure statements; let me explain that the plot struck the right nerve; it hit the nail square on the head (a round nail, square on the head) . . . I got the point. “Ikiru” is Japanese for “to- live.” It concerns one Mr. Watanabe, a chief in the Citizens’ Section of the Japanese Civil Service, who has discovered that he has gastric cancer, and has less than a year to live. The full impact of the terror shown by this man is one that strikes the very mysteries and fears inside

He regrets the wasted years and is forced to face the urgent question of how to make the ultimate use of the short time remaining, and the awesome task of accepting what shall come to pass all too soon. The first thing that our Mr. Watanabe tries is living the gay life, he goes out for a real night on the town in the company of a man whom he invited to show him how to have a “good time.” Although they covered every imaginable activity from burlesque houses to plain dancing, the fun soon burned out, and proved unrewarding to the dying man. Secondly, he tries to steal some of the zest and gaiety of youth by seeking mere companionship with a young

lady acquaintance from the office. Soon the fun dies away because the young lady becomes bored and confused about Mr. Watanabe’s intentions. He says, “All I want to do is to live just one day like you . . . to be like you.” To the audience’s relief, the hero finds usefulness back in his old job where he devotes himself whole heartedly to build a much-needed park in a disease-ridden section of town. We are glad to see him die with a sense of accomplishment, and with true acceptance of death itself. However, the story does not end happily for those who still live. Although Watanabe’s mourners emulate him “in an increasingly drunken criminal eulogy,” and although they themselves resolve to live life to its maximum, the next day the ‘usual apathy returns to the offices of the civil service. It seems that these men, like mo& of us, do not have the courage to be dynamic, but muddle through life like a pawn unless forced to change by a force as great as death.

Good technique, sure-but that’s about all. The difference between a competent snapshot and a work of art is imagination, and in this faculty Kishmul Hahn (Photographer for the University) is sadly lacking. His current photographic exhibit in the Theatre of the Arts gallery illustrates this perfectly. These photographs are simply a potpourri of the old techniques used by magazine photographers for the past ten years. For example, Mr. Hahn% outdoor .portraits of native workers (the ‘rugged head shot’) are of the type we have seen plastered all over National Geographic ever since it became popular to emphasize rotten teeth and pimples. Now if Mr. Hahn were conducting a survey on the number of whiskers per mole on the upper lip of the average female, then he is to be congratulated; but unless he can extend his technical abilities into a .well-planned, and well-composed picture, he should stop hanging his snapshots in an Art gallery. His use of light and dark is sterotype, his posing haphazard, and his lighting unimaginative. Kishmal Hahn’s studio work is not stereotype because no competitive photographer would keep his job using Mr. Hahn’s technique. Apparently he is trying to achieve simplicity with his flat floodlighting, and his pictures certainly are simple. There is no sensation of depth, (everything appearing to be on one plane) and the skin tones range from bone dry for his female subjects to oily for his male subjects. His photograph of Dr. Roe (the dark-haired chap lighting his pipe) looks more like an advertisement for SAE lo-30 all-purpose motor oil, and the very posed ‘short’ of Dr. Hagey resembles a wax museum figure. In fact, the only successful photograph of the whole show is of the pretty girl (smiling, with hands under chin) facing the gallery entrance, and its appeal hinges upon the pose and expression . . . . in other words Mr. Hahn happened to get a good model. The show ends on 22 January.

We have assembled speeches and characters from thirteen of the finest and

The warm and generous nature of the laughter from comedy may even be touched with gentleness and melancholic irony, arising as it does out of our own self-awareness of the frailties and foibles of the human character. Sometimes the conflict which exposes our weaknesses is between members of varying classes,

Christianity - intellectual suicide? Can a self-respecting university student have a faith without committing intellectual suicide? Is he an intellectual schizophrenic if he believes? Have modern methods of exploring knowledge relegated Christianity to the status of superstition and mythology? What are the limitation6 of the Christian faith? On Tuesday, Dr. R. E.

cast consists of five characters: a French maid with nine lives and two honeymoon couples. Interest is aroused at the outset when the audience learns that the groom of the couple A is the former husband of the bride of couple B. Both groups plan to spend their honeymoon in the same hotel in adjoining rooms. The audience is asked to believe that this is purely the caprice of a wandering Fate because when the two former partners come together during the first act, the shock is to be “convincingly rendered.” In a fit of intense emotion, the five-year divorcees decide to flee to her conveniently vacant apartment in Paris - to exchange the beauty and publicity of the Riviera for the beauty and publicity of the City of Eternal Light. “I do love Paris. It’s so gay.” But parting on one’s wedding night is difficult, and they both plan to

WARRI-QRS ~SI-IINE~IN PRESEASON GAMES The University of Waterloo Warriors played several exhibition games in warming up for the regular basketball season and came out on top on most occasions. .,On Saturday December 21 the Warriors overpowered St. John Fisher of Rochester N.Y. 93-57. Waterloo went ahead 40-22 in the first quarter and never looked back. Jerry Raphael netted 24 points while Bob Pando added 21 and Dick Aldridge 16. Davids scored 15 points and Galbraith 14 points for the losers. St. John Fisher received several fouls with McCaber fouling out and several other players with four fouls. No one fouled out for the Warriors. On Wednesday, January 8th the University of Waterloo Warriors journeyed to Guelph to take on O.A.C.C. and drubbed them 92-23. The game itself was a slaughter as coach Clem Faust, who substituted for Don Pugleise played everyone. At one time in the game the score stood 72-7 for the Warriors. Raphael, who played about half the game, came through with 26 points. Jim Hann struck for 21 points and Don Demko for 18 points. The Warriors were great defensively as well. They held Guelph to 23 points and in the entire game only 9 fouls were called against the Warrior team. This is real basketball! !! Lawrence Tech again proved too much for the Warriors as they edged Waterloo 72-65 in a basketball game at Lawrence Tech. As at -home the Warriors played .winning ball except for the one quarter in which they lost the game. In the’ fourth quarter Jerry Raphael and Bill Steinburg fouled out and the Waterloo Warriors were unable to catch the Devils. Jerry Raphael again was high point getter for the Warriors with 20. Don Den&o and Bob Pando had 12 each. Wnok and Goldsmith led the Lawrence Tech. Devils to victory with 18 and 15 respectively. Perhaps at the end of the season these two teams could play again because this writer is confident that the Warriors can defeat this Lawrence Tech: team.

Cornets The Warriors remained on top of the Kitchener-Waterloo Cornets 8462 in a rough and tumble basketball game. at Seagram Stadium on Friday night. Perhaps it was to keep in tempo with the furie winds and snow outside that the players acted so. The referees never did have too much control in the game ‘and what fouls they did call were sometimes unjustified and cheap. At one point in the game a fight very nearly broke out between the players and a fan, (NOT A Warrior Fan). Jerry Raphael led the Warriors with 18 points while Bob Pando and Dick Aldridge counted 15 each. Gary Kritz was high scorer for the K-W Cornets. In rebounding, Jerry had 20 and Bob Pando had 15. Bob Balahura was most accurate as he sank 4 for 5 while Dick Aldridge counted 5 of 7 field goal attempts. The game itself was sometimes boring perhaps be-

DRIBBLE!

Intramural Basketball continues into the new year and once more St. Paul’s lost three games. In the first game Arts dumped St. Paul’s (5) 24-l 1 as Schultz and McDonald paced the artsmen to victory. In the second, St. Jerome’s only managed a 3 6-l 6 victory over St. Paul’s (6). St. Jerome’s always a hard team easily outclassed the tiring St. Paul’s troop. In the final game a misunderstanding caused a forfeiture as St. Paul’s (7) didn’t show up and Renison grabbed an easy victory although it probably would have been easy anyways.

PIONEERS A high

NIP

NIAGARA

spirited Niagara College attempted to defeat the University of Waterloo Pioneers in a junior varsity game last Saturday, but the Pioneers hung on to win 69-66. The game was hard fought all the way and several players fouled out. Mike Swartzkopf led Waterloo with 16 points while Paul Fehrenbach added 15 for the winners. John Young and Eric Baker each netted 21 points for the losing Niagara College. The game was close all the way and in the final minutes anyone could have won it. Jim Krach scored the winning point on a foul shot while a few seconds later Peter Clarke added a field goal to give the Pioneer’s their three point victory. The game was characterized by a spirited Niagara cheering squad who employed drums, horns, and a small microphone. The noise in the gym was almost unbearable at times, but it was great to be there.

The Waterloo Warriors also disposed of the Carleton Ravens 79-59 during the holidays. Waterloo led throughout the entire game, but looked most impressive in the third quarter when they struck for 40 .points. Bob Pando was the hero of the game as he netted 22 points offensively and also grabbed many rebounds. Jerry Raphael hit the hoop for 18 points while Jim Hann added 16 points for the Warrior victory. Callahan hit for 17 points in a losing cause.

RENISON The girls of Renison College received a Christmas present from the administration - a new housemother, Mrs. Murray. A graduate from McGill, Mrs. Murray feels that Canadian women don’t take advantage of the educational opportunities provided for them. As a result girls wishing to study in the women’s common room will take precedent over the late TV viewers every night except Saturday. After all girls, aren’t passing grades more important that the late, late show? If you see several creatures bearing a strange resemblance to Batman, don’t be alarmed. Chances are, at least one of them will turn out to be a Renisonite in an academic gown. These robes will be worn to all formal college functions and upper classmen will have the option of wearing them to classes. Would it be possible to spread the sleeves and sail to the Arts Building ? . . . Congratulations to Joanne Foree chosen as Renison’s entrant in the Winterland Queen contest.
