An annual course on alcohol and drug addiction is in progress on campus. The course, designed for those in medicine, education, law, social work, church andindustry, is conducted by the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Research Foundation, a government agency. It is being held at Conrad Grebel College and in arts B June 5 to 17. The 26 lecturers come from a wide variety of professions--university professors, directors of governmental bodies, church committees, large industrial companagencies such as ies, and private the Mental Health Association. Miss Margaret Cork, has been doing research on children of alcoholic parents, the children being from IO to 16 years of age, all coming from varied backgrounds. She found that the children bear no hate towards the alcoholic parent and yet receive no trust from the non-alcoholic parents. All children felt that they had been hurt yet said drinking was okay so long as the parents didn’t fight. All their attention was focused on the person not on alcohol, on the effects more than the actual drinking. She further stated that no pattern of anti-social behaviour had been established. However she felt that it could develop into a disturbed adulthood. One of the problems to be overcome is the great lack of communication between the doctors and the clergy and the agencies

Dr. Robert Gibbens, professor of psychology at U of T, has been doing statistical research on alcoholics in typical Ontario counties. The population was stratified by four factors, urban-rural distribution, sex distribution, age of population and population characteristics, The ethnic factor was considered weak since immigrants have a tendency to lose their homeland traits after two or three generations. Projections were then made from data thus obtained and was thenapplied to larger areas. If an interviewed alcoholic gave the names of others like himself, these new people were then interviewed. As you can see, the number to be interviewed becomes a geometric progression, and thus a large number of cases were studied, Some interesting figures were obtained. The number of male alcoholics between the ages of 35 and 44 was 27.3 percent of the male sample and for those between 45-54 the figure dropped to 26.9 percent. For the woman between 35 and 44 an estimate of 34.1 percent was reached and for those between 45 and 54 the figure was 31.9 percent of the female alcoholics. For every thousand people interviewed the percentage of alcoholics was given for the varied occupations,

In two telephone conversations with the minister of education,Federation of Students president Mike Sheppard overcame a technicality that had withheld loans from students repeating co-op termsa Any students repeating a B term who has been refused student aid because of the technicality should now reapply at the registrar’s office for the aid, Mr. Sheppard advised. He would willingly see any students having difficulty with aid, in the Federation building. Students repeating only one of the A or B terms in the cooperative courses were ineligible under the government student-aid regulations demanding that a student be regis tered in a course of at least 26 Each term here is only aweeks. bout 16 weeks. Education minister William Davis has advised the department of university affairs to ignore the regulation as far as U of W students are concerned, said Mr. Sheppard. The department has for some time considered A and B terms together as one year-- 2A and 2J3, for example, have been accepted as a normal second ye;ar, In discussions with some of the students concerned, Mr e Sheppard learned some of them had been refused in previous years under the same clause. The clause is common to the new Ontario Student Awards Program& effect since April 4, and to the Canada Student Loan Plan, previously in use in Ontario. He said the registrar’s office here had let this problem go on for some years, “simply turning these people. away ” instead of helping. The situation “strikes me as being rather ridiculous, since it took me only a few hours to clear the whole thing up,” he said.. Mr. Sheppard said he telephoned the education minister and explained the problem to him on May 27. Mr. Davis phoned back within minutes, saying he had instructed the univer-

Since this continent will be in need of hydroelectric power and water resources by the end of this century, a method of relieving the

sity affairs department not to apply this regulation against U of W students. Mr. Sheppard had first telephoned F. C. Passey, civil servant in charge of administering the awards plan. Mr. Passey “did not think anything could be done because he had to follow the regulations,” said Mr. Sheppard. Both of the student-aid officials for the registrar @s office were on

vacation and unavailable to coinment on the situation in past years, Mrs, Dorothy Busch, their secretary, said the registrar’s office is waiting for a memo from university affairs clarifying the situation. University affairs would probably also write the students previously refused, she said. The registrar’s office is now handling applications from students repeating B terms, Mrs, Busch said,

e to correct ot The new Ontario Student Awards Program, in effect since April 4, has several serious drawbacks, the student presidents of Ontario univer sities agreed. The awards plan, which replaces the Canada Student Loan Plan in Ontario, was one of the main topics at the recent presidents meeting in Toronto of the Ontario Region of the Canadian Union of Students (ORCUS). One section--the requirement of a 260week course, which affected Waterloo’s cooperative students-has already been cleared up. “The other faults with this plan cannot be changed as easily,” said Mike Sheppard, president of theU of W Federation of Students, “but Iand all other presidents in Ontario will be trying our best throughout the summer.” Basically the new plan estimates the need of the student and then awards money to meet it--60 percent as a loan and 40 percent given as a bursary, The great advantages are thatthe 40 percent does not have to be repaid and that it does not depend on marks. Previously a 66-percent average was necessary to get a bursary; now anyone with university entrance requirements is eligible. The disadvantages besides the 26,week restriction, according to Mr. Sheppard, are these: 1. The government has not sub-

s tantially increased the tot al amount of aid, 2, All scholarships and bursaries ‘are deducted from the 40-percent bursary portion. 3. Most students cannot declare themselves financially independent of his parents, whether or not they contribute, 4. There is an extremely rigid means test, which the student”s parents must fill out, “‘Humiliadescribed it, ting*s’ or. Sheppard 5. The student cannot specify a certain amount of aid. The government gives him what it thinks he will need. 6. Travel grants to students from distant areas--northern Ontario for example--are no longer automatic,

John Bergsma, A. J. (Fred) Brychta, D. G. Edwards, Murray A, Ouellette, Brian Iller, Owen Redfern and Louis Battiston werenominated. Elections will be held Wednesday from 9 to 5. Polls will be located in the engineering foyer.

To overcome the resistance in the wires which will run between the dam and the light post, it was decided to build the dam within close proximity. A bit of research into the background of theproject indicates itwas built by enterprising engineering students in their spare time (between midnight and 2 on the night of May 26).

of the The midterm dinner of the Chemical Engineering Club, with Robert Rosehart as chairman, was held in the Philippine Room at the Breslau Hotel recently. The more than 50 students and professors present enjoyed an excellent two-course meal. Dr. D. S. Scott, chairman of chemical engineering, gave a progress report on chemicalengineering here. He told the students that the chemical engineering department is the largest in Canada and is still growing; He also said that the undergraduate class is second innumber only to that of the University of Toronto and that in two years it would be the largest. Dr. Scott said that the completion of the new $1,250,000 wing to the chemical engineering building will provide more laboratory space

for students as well as a much-needed increase in study facilities. Members of 3A chemical engineering were pleased to learn that 45 of them were expected to graduate, Toks Oshinowo, Engineering Society president , informed the dinner that a restricted open house would provide the students, their families and friends with an opportunity to visit the various faculties of the university. The economic adviser to the federal rninister of industry, A. S, Abell, will speak June 17 on the position of contemporary industrial Canada with respect to the industrial environment outside of Canada, The evening ended pleasantly with informal discussions between students and faculty and an extensive but not excessive study of fluid mechanics.

The ‘Coryglyphus’ What would your reaction be to the proposal that the Coryphaeus change its “name? The suggestion has been broached privately several times in the past. Perhaps now is the time to put the case before the students with the view of settling the issue. has several dis“Coryphaeus” advantages as the name of a newspaper The name has been before the paper’s readers for over six years but many have not yet learned to spell or even pronounce it. To the post office it’s “Coryglyphus” almost every time. When reporters introduce themselves the reaction is almost invariably “Huh?“. Freshmen-soon to be a seventh crop of themalways need two or three months to accustom themselves to the name. Does the name become likeable even by graduation? Virtually no one prononuces it correctlythe dictionary says the accent should be on the third, not the second syllable: tory-y-PHAE-us. Few know what the name means. A stranger seeing the paper for the first time is apt to be repelled by the stuffy Latin-sounding name.

‘One of the CUP judges at the annual conference said this was his experience. On the other hand, there are reasons for retaining the name. It is well-established. It’s almost as old as our university, and as familiar to our graduates as Cookie the Kampus Kop or knee-high mud. The name is Certainly different and distinctive compared to the names of other Canadian university newspapers. The meaning of “Coryphaeus” is appropriate to the - function of a campus newspaper. The Coryphaeus, leader of the chorus in a Greek drama, is somewhat similar to the newspaper’s positi.on in the forefront of the collective voice or opinion of the campus. The Coryphaeus would appreciate receiving any opinions and suggestions of its readers and alumni on thi,s question. Do you think the name should remain or be changed? Why? What should th e new name be? NO new name has been chosen, although there are some suggestions. The question now is whether we fight on despite the disadvantages or switch.

Village

dress

To the editor: Last September, when the University Village was formed, the students of the Village were led to beIieve that their council would run it as a community. This is not so. For example, the wearing of a tie was forced down their throats by the dictatorship of the Village warden (a well chosen name, I might add). This rule was to make s upper hour more enjoyable by encouraging cleanliness etc., but at present (June 2) the purpose of the rule is being slaughtered ! Residents are coming for supper in cut-off jeans, sportshirts with wide brightly colored ties and other appalling forms of disapproval to the rule. The Village residents, as a body,

have presented a petition to the administration requesting a revision of the rule (from tie and jackets to sportshirts or dress shirts with pressed slacks and clean shoes). This formal protest to the old rule of jacket and ties was received by the administration, which held a much delayed meeting. They decided to make the tie mandatory and left it at that. In other words, if you live in the Village, all you have towear tosupper is a shirt and tie. They don’t seem to care if you come in your bathing suit and bare feet, As a member of the Village, 1 think our idea would have been much i-nor e sensible. I and many others think the new ruling stinks. Marcus Baker (Editor’s note: A new rule in effeet since Tuesday requires only neat dress. Village residents apparently wrote to higher-ups in the administration, including university president Hagey, resulting in the change. The full story next issue.)

The prayer that opens convocation ceremonies should be abolished. According to the 1966-67 calendar the University of Waterloo is incorporated as a “non-denominational institute of higher learning...“. This must be recognized for the sake of those non-Christians, both. atheists and members of other faiths, who receive diplomas. The university is a secular institution and must officially establish no religion or antireligion. The prayer was used, no doubt, primarily to set a mood of reverence and sobriety. But to those present of other faiths -particularly international students from Moslem, Hindu and other backgrounds-it could only have created a pang of irritation and the sensatian of exclusion. To the audience of general North

Americans of the post-Christian era, the recitation was meaninglessdusty old words. Those who mumbled scorn to themselves were at least honest, though perhaps rude. The aware Christian may have felt both embarrassed because the prayer affronted the first group, and himself affronted because the unwelcome prayer invited scorn and rejection from the second. The university as an institute of our society, although born of medieval Christianity, today is no longer under its guardianship. The age of Western ~Christendom is at last finished-a good thing for both church and society. Our society is not Christian, and to pretend that it is-in such ceremonies-is distasteful to both nonChristian and Christian. This anachronistic convocation prayer must be abolished.
