Welcome to the University of Watrloo! Welcome to an exciting new way of life, to the opportunity of probing new depths of knowledge, of making new friends, of forming sound opinions O

of every senior on campus, but all is meant in fun. Nothing too outrageous will be demanded. Thus, if these pranks are taken in the right spirit they can be enjoyable for yourself as well as the upperclassmen.

Part of your experience as a freshman is Initiation Week - a week’of laughter, bewilderment, and pranks. Initiation Week is your week, so get into the swing of it. Enjoy it! Have fun! Sure you may be asked to perform crazy tasks such as making a dead horse, or measuring the length of the Engineers’ Common Room with a toothpick or memorizing the name

Initiation Week (Sept. 18-26) is planned for you. Never again will you be a Freshman. Never again will you experience the same perplexities and excitement as in your Freshman year. Make the most of it by joining in the programme planned by the .Sophomores. There is a full week of activities planned: A Charity Drive; Torchlight Pyjama Parade through

w affect all There is a serious shortage of student housing this year. Part of this problem is due to the increased enrolment, but an important part results from damage to rooms by students. Four out of five of the main apartment complexes have refused to rent their apartments to students. Many rooms in private homes which were available last year are no longer for rent. This attitude is a direct result of the rowdy behaviour of some students and the consequent damage. As students, we have a responsibility to the university, to the community, to other students, to our landlords, and. to ourselves to be sensible and careful. Don’t you be responsible for loss of more student housing.

This university is growing. To see that it grows in an orderly fashion there is a planning department. This department has the university development and expansion planned up to 1970 and beyond. We question, however, the efficiency of this department. A new extension on the Engineering building has been planned for over a year. For five months it has been known that Annex 1 would have to be moved to make room for this extension. For four months everyone sat on their hands. On August 3Oth, a week and a half before registration, the moving of the Annex got under way. There are some vital student services located in Annex 1, including the Health Services. These has been disrupted at a time when a lot of organization is in progress for the coming school year. Board of Publications has been temporarily located in a seminar room in the Arts building. We have to vacate this room at the end of the week, but the Annex is not expected to be ready for us by then. We may be turning out a newspaper from the middle of the Arts parking lot, and this is planning?

On behalf of the students of the University of Waterloo, the Coryphaeus would like to express deepest sympathy to Dr. Hagey and his family at the loss of Mrs. Hagey .

As another September rolls around, students across the country prepare themselves for another year of academic study spiced with a little extracurricular activity. Whatever events highlight this academic year will be hardpressed to surpass those of the 1964-65 year. Marked by changes, serious unrest, and sometimes more than a little humour, 1964-65 was a year with a difference for the Canadian academic community. Last September, hopes for Canadian unity were dashed when the force of French-Canadian nationalism disrupted the Canadian Union of Students. At the CUS congress in Toronto, three French-Canadian universities tendered withdrawal from the national organization. Soon after, English-Canadian universities Laval, Sherbrooke, and Montreal joined the three in the Union Generale des Etudiants du Quebec. Studet finances received a shot in the arm at the beginning of the year with the provision for Canada student loans of up to $1000 annually to undergraduates. The loan act was acclaimed by some as a success - while others immediately charged

The CORYPHAEUS

It is my pleasure to extend greetings on behalf of the University and its federated and affiliated colleges - St. Jerome’s, Renison, St. Paul’s and Conrad Grebel - to the freshman students in arts and science. As you can see from the construction around you, we have been preparing for your arrival. It may interest you to know that only five years ago the entire enrollment of the University of Waterloo was less than the numbr of men and women in this year’s freshman class in arts and science. As members of the Arts and Science Faculties, you will be graduating in either 1968, 1969 or 1970, depending on which course you choose to take. During this period in which you will share in the university’s development, you will see the student body double in number. The campus area now under development will be pretty well completed from University Avenue to Columbia Street. You will watch the construction of many new teaching and research buildings needed to serve you in other ways. The latter will include a new campus centre, additional residences, new food service facilities and book store, a new physical education and athletic building and playing fields, and so on. You will aso meet many new members of the faculty and staff who will join us during this period. You and your university, therefore, have a great deal in common. You are at the point of a new order of growth and development in your life, So is the university. To succeed you will have to apply considerable selfdiscipline and great effort to make the most of your opportunities in higher education. So will the university. During your undergraduate years you will

be required to make more decisiorp in the undertaking of new responsibility than has ever been your experience before. So with the university. You will be offered a good deal of both professional and friendly .advice and assistance of various kinds which will enrich your learning and your life if you accept this help and counsel. Your university grows and prospers in the same way. So I can say that in accepting the challenge of university life and education, you should seek a goal of

Dr. J. G. Hagey,

Balance socic~l, acade On behalf of the Student Council of the Federation of Students, I welcome you to the University of Waterloo and to membership in our Federation. You will find that life at university is a challenge, embracing far more than classroom work. Certainly, academics are important; however, participation in social and athletic activities, intellectual discussion, and development of leadership qualities are all a valuable part of the university experience.

If you do this, not only will you make the most of the opportunity in your life but also you will enrich the whole environment of the campus. On behalf of my colleagues and the members of the Alumni, I welcome you as members of the University of Waterloo and wish you success in your studies and enjoyment in your campus life. J. G.

The value that you receive from a university education is up to you. Hopefully, you are here to be educated, not merely to earn enough credits for a degree. By participating in a number of activities you will become a mature and well-rounded individual, fulfilling the true purpose of a university. A word of caution is necessary here. Some students become so interested in the extra-curricular areas of campus life that they neglect the academic side of their education. In

university, as everywhere, a healthy sense of proportion is required. You have come to a new university. We are lacking in traditions; however, we are lacking as well the restraints on initiative that traditions so often bring with them. I urge you to take full advantage of both the academic and extra-curricular opportunities available. Above all, I hope you will take pride in your University, and that one day your University will be proud of you. GERRY MUELLER, Student Council President

that students misused these funds by purchasing savings bonds and sports cars and by taking trips to Europe. Whether or not these allegations were true is a matter of question, but by the summer of 1965, the government had decided to revise its loan act by making loans a little more difhcult to obtain. The “shot in the arm” was further turned into a kick in the pants when many universities across the country announced fee increases for the current year.

part in current events. From support for students at the University of California, where freedom of speech was threatened, to demonstrations against the racial violence in Selma, Alabama, students have publicized their increased involvement in Canadian life.

On the lighter side, the 64-65 academic year was one of a series of hard-to-beat records. Acadia coeds stitched continuously for 10 days to produce a 105 foot 6 inch scarf, 50 stitches wide (although what they did with it was not said). Anxious to test a drip-dry suit perhaps, Sir George Williams University student claimed a world’s record by taking a 60 hour shower. A week later, Acadia triumphed again; There a student drenched himself for 101 hours.

The Martlet, campus newspaper of the University of Victoria, has gone bilingual. Not too unusual? It is when you recall that the city of Victoria has for years been Canada’s bastion of British tradition. From tea and crumpets to flower pots hang-: ing from lamp standards, British Columbia’s capital has resisted any change. Breaking with the tradition of conservatism, the University of Victoria has established La Miason Fransaise, a centre for students in spoken French. According to the newsentre Quebec paper, “les piliers du pont linguistique-culture1 et Victoria ont & cot&$ cette &” - perhaps more than those between Qukbec et l’Universit& de Waterloo.

Yet, on the whole, the 64-65 year was one in which Canadian students proved themselves able to’ take a more active

In addition the Board is to assume the responsibility of providing a series of professional attractions during the academic year.

In MUSIC a number of performing groups will be organized in both the choral and instrumenatl areas with major concerts planned for early December. Informal noonday concerts and Sunday afternoon recitals have also been scheduled for the Fall and Winter.

Membership on the Board includes students, faculty and administration. Mr. Paul Berg has been appointed Administrative Director and the senior staff consists of: Mrs. Nancy-Lou Patterson, Director of Art Activities; Mr. Alfred Kunz, Director of Music; and the Drama Director-in-Residence, who will be Mr. Dennis Sweeting during the Fall term.

The major DRAMATIC production is planned for late November and will be chosen from the following plays: “Our Town,” Thornton Wilder; “The Caucasian Chalk Circle,” Berthold Brecht; An evening of Shaw: “Dark Lady of the Sonnets, How He Lied to Her Husband and Overruled.” Other drama activities include regular sessions in acting, stage production,

sic excifing, Mr. Alfred Kunz, the director of Music wants to make the University of Waterloo Music Department the biggest and best in music and productions in Canada. “I want to put the University of Waterloo on the map musically speaking” he said. There are many musical activities planned for this year, including madrigal singers, a choir, orchestra, woodwind and brass ensembles, and opera society. The madrigal singers will include about 17 of the best singers on campus. The choral group will encompass everyone at the University who is interested, faculty, administration and staff as well as students. To do justice to the works planned this choir needs about one hundred voices. Two major works with orchestra are planned, one each term.

Under the new system of faculty advisers, freshman science students are divided into sections of 24 students for laboratory classes. Each lab section is then subdivided into small groups of six or seven students with a faculty member assigned to each group as an adviser,. Wherever possible faculty advisers are assigned on the basis of the student’s field of academic interest. Faculty advisers will meet individually with each student in the first three or four weeks of the fall semester for a preliminary talk and again after the Christmas examinations to review the student’s progress and problems. Throughout the year faculty advisers will be available for consultation at a selected time each week.

After seven years of study at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Mr. Kunz came to Kitchener as a music teacher. At that time he founded and still conducts the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Orchestra and Choir. In 1964 he spent a year studying composition and conducting in Germany. While there he wrote and conducted the West German State conducting examinations. This feat ordinarily takes three years to accomplish. He studied with Karl-Heinz Stockhausen in Cologne and was an assistant in the Mainz City Opera. Mr. Kunz has now had five works published and three works are currently in the process of being published.

The Gallery exists primarily to serve the students of the University of Waterloo. Exhibitions are planned to make the best of art in Canada (whether past or present, from home or abroad) available to students. The Gallery is open Monday thru Friday, from 9 to 5, and Sundays from 3 to 5. As such it is available to every student at some time or other and to the general public as well. Students are invited to come to the Gallery at any time. Benches are provided for prolonged viewing. Many students find that repeated visits to the same exhibition yields a deeper return in understanding than a “quick once-over .” Noontime sessions have been planned. These are highly informal lectures and a detailed work-by-work examination (with discussion invited) of each current exhibition. These sessions will be led by Nancy-Lou Patterson, Gallery Director, and have proved to be the most exciting part of the

student programme. Alternating with the noontime sessions will be film programmes on art, shown during the noon hour and sometimes running over (for noontime classes), consisting of several features.
