Grenkie Election Flyer
The election of Student Council members last Tuesday included several surprise victories. However, voting was extremely light. In the Arts’ Constituency, only 21.6’% of the voters turned out to the polls. Ginny Lee led in the riding. Other new council members are Steve Ireland, John Clarke, Doug Weir, and Heather White. The surprise in this constituency was the election of Heather White. In the Science Constituency, 32.3% of the electorate voted. Jeff Evans was the first choice. Other science members are Anita Bugara, Paul Freeman,
and Dave Ness. Dave Ness was not expected Simon was quite surprising.

When a Nigerian mental patient reports for treatment to a witch doctorhe moves right into the doctor’s home, often bringing his wife or his daughter to help him with basic nursing and food preparation. This picture of mental treatment in the West African countries has been brought back to Canada by Dr. Raymond Prince, of the Section of Transcultural Psychiatric Studies, McGill University, who returned in 1963 from 17 months of field work with native healers of the Yoruba cultural group practising in the towns and villages in Nigeria. Dr. Prince will give a lecture on Wednesday March 31 in the Theatre of the Arts at 8:30 p.m. With his vast knowledge and research on the topic of ‘Cultural Healing’ and ‘Native Practioners in West Africa’, Dr. Prince will be able to provide the students and faculty of this campus as well as all other people of the Kitchener-Waterloo area an intriguing and informative evening.
What They Wish They Had Known Before Coming to College This is the title of the book which Professor W. 5. Reddin of the .University of New Brunswick is writing for Canadian high school and college students. Some of the proposed sixteen chapters are Selecting a Canadian College, Selecting Courses, The Care and Feeding of Professors, Information Display, Instant Sophistication, The Search for Maturity, and Residence Life. Anyone who has time to write to this professor concerning his views or information on any of these subjects should write to W. J. Reddin, c/o U.N.B., Fredericton, N.B.

It is my hope that Student Council will make good use of hindsight (we’ve made the mistakes-we have only to learn from them), and make a determined effort at foresight in planning and organization.

WITCH DOCTOR’S POLICY PRAISED
One thing that I feel will contribute greatly to this is a more unified Student Council. I have represented Renison College on two previous councils and in that time I have had the overwhelming impression that in spite of the interest shown on my part I was, in fact, an outsider. For that matter , Student Council has never been a very cohesive body. Admittedly, Student Council is the place for debate and constructive criticism of proposals brought before it, but certainly a great deal more can be accomplished by a co-operative effort at good planning and organization and less dissention over personal and factional interests.
Council. Elected; fSeveral Upsets
Student Council for 1965-66 will be starting off with everything going for them. We will have a new constitution, we will have new blood on Student Council and we will have a larger student body. The people who are elected to Student Council should and be people with intelligence initiative. There is no longer any place on our Student Council for the pettiness and apathy that has marked its action or lack of action in the past. Having said this much, what can I say for myself? I have been acclaimed and there is really not much I can do about that fact. This is not to say that I take my responsibility as a member of Student Council lightly. On the contrary, it is a responsibility that carries with it a great challenge and surely anyone who is willing to accept a nomination is indicating his willingness and even (we should hope) his eagerness to accept that challenge.

An Ontario couple have recently been disallowed to become Canadian citizens because they refuse to admit the existence bf God. They claim to be Atheists. They have every right to this view and should not be discriminated against because of this. Thirdly, there is the case of the refusal of Professor Sibley in the editorial on this page. And there are many more examples. Surely, the students of this university . have some opinion on these matters. Why don’t you express them. Why don’t you stand up for the ‘rights of all individuals.

Immigration officials in Winnipeg have made Canada an object of international ridicule. They refused entry to a distinguished American political scient’st who is a Quaker, a Jeffersonia d pacifist, and a strong supporter of free speech and’ opinion. Further, more, they turned him away while Prime Minister Lester Pearson was expressing the hope to the Commons in Ottawa’ that there would be “no difficulty” in admitting him.
The ‘man whom Winnipeg bureaucrats deemed too dangerous to be allowed on Canadian soil is Professor Mulford Q. Sibley of the University of Minnesota. He had been invited to address a meeting at the University of Manitoba, sponsored by the Manitoba branch of the Voice of Women. When he got off the plane at Winnipeg, Canadian immigration officials asked him if he was a Communist or had Communist sympathies. He refused to answer these questions‘which to, him “smacked of McCarthyism”-and was promptly sent back to Minneapolis on the same plane which had brought him.
Mr, James Cross, Western regional director of the Immigration Department, made it clear why Prof. Sibley had been refused entry. To underscore his belief in freedom of speech and thought, the professor once said: “ would like to see on the (University of Minnesota) campus one or two Communist professors, ’ a students’ Communist club, a chapter of the \ American Association for the Advancement of Atheism, a society for the promotion of free love, a league for the overthrow of government by Jeffersonian violence, an anti-automation league and perhaps a nudist colony.” These views made Mr. Cross cross, they made, him see Red, so Profi Sibley was sent away. But it wasn’t just Mr. Cross. The order that Prof. Sibley should be questioned (“Are you now or have you ever been a Communist or a Communist sympa-
thizer?“) came from Canada’s 1Immigration Minister, Mr. John R. Nicholson, who knew beforehand that the professor was coming to Winnipeg, and accordingly launched an investigation of him. 5 This investigation got to the ears of Mr. Stanley Knowles (NDP, Winnipeg North Centre), who asked Mr. Pearson in the Commons if Prof. Sibley was going to be allowed into Canada. The Prime Minister replied: “Certain information was conveyed to the authorities regarding the possible arrival at the border of that man on his route to Winnipeg. That information reuuired the de,partment to make some inquiries. The man in question has not yet appeared at the border, and I hope that as a result of the investigation which has been made there will be no difficulty in this regard. , But even as the Prime Minister spoke, Prof. Sibley was. being sent away--l-an action which the Im,migration Minister (in Vancouver at the time) described as “proper”. Mr. Pearson, meet Mr. Nicholson. Messrs. Pearson and Nicholson, meet the Governor of Minnesota, Mr. Karl Rolvaag, 1who after Prof. Sibley’s rejection _sent a telegram to the Winnipeg immigration office saying: “I am pleased to testify regarding the personal honesty, integrity and high moral character of Prof. Sibley. A leader in the world pacifist movement, he is considered an outstanding teacher and scholar not only here, but throughout the United States as well.” .
Rolvaag said later: Governor “Countless Americans are severely shaken in their attitudes regarding the existence of freedom of expression in Canada. It borders on the un-’ believable.” It does indeed. Canada has been made to look foolish ‘by itand so has Canada’s Prime Minister. There must be a full explanation in the ‘House of Commons.

Television is being viewed as a solution to the problem of increasing enrolments in Ontario’s universities, Although TV would not bring Yogi Bear, into the classroom, it could restore the professor-student relationship that is now disappearing; in many universities. Having studied how most effectively to use television on campus, a committee of university academics and administrators set up by Ontario universities has agreed that on-campus television is an advantage which has been proved by several Canadian universities. The University of Toronto, McMaster, McGill ,and the University of Waterloo are among those already using TV. ‘Scarborough College, now under construction, will be the first Canadian university built to utilize television teachihg methods. The television committee, under the chairmanship of Dr. D. C. Williams, vitie-president of the Scarborough and Erindale campuses of the U. of T., is preparing a report to guide universities using television. . A critical shortage of university l.ecturers was forecast by the committee of Ontario university presidents in a 1962 report to the provincial government, It is hoped that television will help face this shortage by, in effect, bringing the lecture back to the small group of students. Students say “they feel closer to the professor watching him on a large screen than sitting in a huge lecture_ hall staring at him from a distance.” Timetable clashes could easily be averted by viewing video-taped lectures and students would benefit by having access to the best lecturers.
Members of Faculty and staff are reminded of a motion, c$ly pashed at a meeting of /the Pr,esident’s Advisorv Committee on Student Discipline and University Regulations.’ Pending recommendations from the subcommittee, the” procedure, as outlined in the regulations be continued with the exception of fines collection from faculty and staff members of the university. (The system of offences and citations will be continued for all.) The University is still operating under this policy’ and hence, ‘fines collection’ from faculty and staff is not in effect. ’
What ‘About. : The Others ITwenty students have been elected tdbe members of the Student Council of the University of Waterloo. However, what will the losing candidates and other members of this university do next year. Well, there are scores of clubs and’ activities for them to be concerned with. Indeed, there is’ an * urgent need for students to fill the many positions within the various boards of Student Council. We urge you to contribute to these numerous boards and activities in order that all the students ‘can enjoy a successful and prosperous ‘next year.’ s
In an unprecedented move, the Senate ‘of the University of Victoria has approved student representation in the administration of the, University. In an announcement last month, the Senate stated that it had approved a resolution permitting any administration committee to appoint student representatives. Student Union President Olivia Barr called the move incredible. She praised it as a great step forward in giving students a greater voice in the university’s future plans and a greater interest in its administration. Registrar R; J. Jeffels echoed these words with his statement that the Sen&e’s decision was in recognition of the university as a community of-scholars and teachers working together.. Already plans [have been announced to appoint students to three administration committees: the C?mpus Plantiing- Committee, the Athletics Facilities, and the Centennial Program Committee.

Are students actually worried over fee increases? Results of. the recent CUS student means survey on two campuses seem to suggest a negative answer to this question. Of 1163 students asked to ansyer questionnaires for the survey at UBC, only 100 replies were received by the survey director. At the Edmonton campus of the Univers,ity of Alberta, ‘there were only 284 replies from the 794 students asked. The survey at U. of A. was done again in order to obtain a larger sampling of student opinion. *
Following examples set in Great Britain and the United States, Ontario university registrars are studying a proposal to establish a central universities’ admissions centre through which all students’ applications could be processed. The proposal would cut down the number of applications made by students yet would still allow students the same freedom in choosing a university ‘and universities the same freedom to select students. A major problem is posed in Ontario by the student who applies ‘to several universities, is accepted at several, and yet registers at only one university without notifying the others. This results in empty places at universities. The central admissions system, proposed by University of Waterloo registrar A. P. Gordon, would allow students refused by one university to be notified of vacancies on other campuses. i The proposal is presently being studied by a committee of 10 Ontario \ registrars. 8 *
Our thanks to the American Press for the following article. Sheikh Abu Zahru, a professor of Islamic law at Cairo University, is a member of a group advocating new interpretations of the Koran in the Islamic religion. One of the changes this group is urging is an end to polygamy. “God originally permitted polygamy to, help Moslems solve many problems that could not be solved otherwise”, said Abu Zahru. “But a Moslem was required to have strong reasons to commit polygamy. Lust is not a sufficient reason.” “Polygamists will be surprised and dismayed when doomsday strikes,” he added. “God $11 tell-them then that they have been abusing his laws and they will end up in hell. So I warn you-get rid of your extra wives.” ’
