For six days last week,theCoop residence was the site of a farout think conference staged by the local Student Union for Peace Action group. The conference of 120 delegates was the first national meeting for SUPA since its founding conference in Regina in 1964. The educational conference was arranged by Pete War&n, local SUPA organ&r. Delegates, who came from as far as Victoria and Halifax, arrived late Wednesday night’ and were treated to three days of guestspeakers. Among the speakers were California anarchist Paul Goodman, Prof. George Haggar ofWUC, Prof. Donald Gordon of this campus and James Liddleton of the Company of Young Canadians. Two days of discussion concerning SUPA’s future role followed. The conference broke up Monday, with most of the 120 delegates go-
ing on to Toronto to picket the American consulate against the Vietnam war. SUPA--which was formerly called the Combined Universides’Campa&n for Nuclear Disarmament-is a youth peace movement with about 1200 people on its mailing list. It is aff%ted with the U.S. group Students for a Democratic Society. The “new left” group has repeatedly denied that it is a Communist front. It is backed in this claim by the fact that the RCMP has yet to raid its offices. The movement has no formal organization other than a federal council headed by James Harding of Lakehead University. Donations from well-wishers have not kept the organizationfrom running up a defecit of such a size that paid officials are afraid to disclose it. The peace group will hold a federal uxference in Montreal inMay.

Delegates came from as far as Victoria and Halifax for the first national meetof SVPA since it was organized in 1964. Most of the 120 delegates went to Toronto Monday to picket the U.S. consulate.

Paul Goodman, California marcbt, addressed an audience of 150 at the third day of the Student Union For Peace Action conference on campus last week. In preliminary remarks about the nature of the “new left*’ Dr. Goodman said that the student movements in the United States should be called radical rather than leftists since they shunned much of the doctrinaire Marxism that Dr. Goodman found in the Canadian left. Dr. Goodman saw the so-called new left in the U.S. as a non-ideological urban populism in which Goldwaterites and the Students for a Democratic Society had more in common with each other than with the center . The second speaker for the morning was Jim Liddleton of thecompany of Young Canadians, who declared that the constituents of the
setup of the UN. He proposed that the General Assembly be given more power and that the numbers of both the permanent and the temporary members of the Security Council be increased. “If the UN backs a proposai l then most of the nations of the world back that proposal, and then the great powers will listen.” B ut at the same time, the step that must be taken initially to strengthen the UN is the recognition of Red China. The exclusion of Red Chfna to the extent of not including it in disarmament talks just doesn’t make sense. The exclusion of the largest people on earth from an international organization just doen’t make sense. Dr. Ronning said that ;ie hoped that m the first year of Canada second century “Canadian foreign policy would make another change. That it would finally recognize 700
new left are the dropouts from Society . Mr. Liddleton saw the new left in the tradition of the anarchist-syndics list movements of the past. During the question period that followed, Dr. Goodman declared himself a modern philosopher pointing the way to social change.
Paul Goodman, a California professor noted for his anarchistic views, was the featured speaker at last weeks Student Union for Peace Action conference. He addressed about 150. Record Photo
Paul Goodman advocates a modern form of anarchy. His perfect society involves small-groupinteractions. Curricula for instance, would be planned at individual schools with central authorities only for purchasing school supplies.
Nominations opened Wednesday for president of the Federation of Students. A reported 12,000 students were on hand to see if anyone would be crazy enough to file. Forms are available from the Federation office.
Dr. Goodman pointed to thesituation in France during the first few years of the 1789 revolution as an ideal example of the situation which‘ he has in mind. The discussion stressed that movements such as SUPA should remain issue-oriented rather than power-oriented. SUPA should remain a social movement and not become a political party.
million people.” Canada has had a glorious record in the field of foreign policy and achievement,and Ronning felt it was our duty to take the initiative in the important aspects of international relations. When Ronning was sent to Hanoi last year to attempt to bring about a cease fire in the war in Vietnam so that negotiations could be carried out, he told Ho Chi Minh iwhom he has known p_ersonally for years that- he “could get them (the U.S.) out because they want to get out”. He believes that the U.S. real* wants to get out of Vietnam but that the only way that the Vietnamese could acheve this endwould be around the conference table. They could never beat the armed might of the United States. “And the absence of hostilities is most important to doing something.” Ronning recalled that during the

Their bodies were carried around the city by the workmen who were on strike against the British were hated all over India. But then they saw the light, and left India, and they have been tremendously respected ever since then. This was a great statesmanlike action, and this brought respect. Turning back to Vietnam, he said there can be no talks until the bombing of North Vietnam has stopped. He said the United States was a great nation and should for this reason thake the initiative and the responsibiltiy for ending the war in Vietnam. “Let us decide whether there shall be peace or war. And then let us opt for peace.” This would a great statesmanlike action on a par with the British in India.
Council.breakstuusienttradition:\ meeting ends day it started , by Dale Martin Chevron
A long-standing council tradition was broken when Student COLIIIC~ finished its Dec. 5 meeting thesame day that it began. The last Council meeting of 1966 came to an end at 9:23 p.m., thereby shortening the average length of Council meetings from six hours to five and a half. The meeting actually lacked a quorum (half of allvotingmembers) for the first 25 minutes of the meeting; 8 * * Stewart Saxe, Renison rep,introduced three bnstitutional amendments covering impeachment and recall of the president, andthecreation of binding referendums. The first two passed ratherhandily while the third was shelved for future consideration. At the same time, President Mike Sheppard attempted to introduce a consdtutional amendment permitting the president to disolve Council in the case of a deadlock. He could not find a seconder for his motion. As soon as the speaker, had accordingly ruled Mr. Sheppard’s motion out of order, Peter Benedict, gkad rep, seconded the motion so that it could be immediately voted on and defeated, thus preventingthe issue from being raised at later Council meetings.
The engineering Class of ‘68 wffl hold a s&nmer weekend in June. Council agreed to subsidize the event up to $1,000. The creative arts board brought down its budget for the coming year. The subsidy from Council will amount to $16,lOO. This new high, up by $1,900 from the previous budget, comes because the board has taken over the arts lecture series from the board ofstudentactivities, and $3,000 is needed* to pay for next year% arts festival.

vailable to single girls. Most doctors will prescribe them for regulation of the menstrual cycle, for WCcessive premenstrual tensions and a few other special reasons. Shouldn’t the decision to take the pills be left to the girl and not her doctor? “No,” says Dr. Reesor. Thepill has not yet been perfected and certain side effects may result. Then there is the chance of forgetting to
“I’d rather see a girl seeking advice in my office six weeks before a big event, such as homecoming, than six weeks after--complaining ‘I’m overdue, doctor, help! ’ ” That’s what Dr. Helen Reesor of the university health services said when she was asked for her policy on supplying contraceptives. ‘We are here to provide themaximum healthservicefor thestudents on the campus ,” said Dr. Reesor. The student spends about $1500 a year for his education. The university also spends about $2,000 yearly on each student--and would like to see them get adiploma. “We do not want girls leaving schoolbecause of pregnancy,” said Dr.Reesor. The attitude of the university health services is much the same as that of other clinics or private doctors. Information on preventives is available should a girl ask for it. “The Pill” --the only method that requires a prescription--is available to a girl planning marriage, but only after the proper examinations have been performed. Health services gives a prescription only for approximately three months. The girl is then referred to her own family doctor for continuation of her prescription and for regular tests to be sure there are no ill effects. Since the birth-control pill takes a month or two to become effective, the girl is advised to start taking them that long before marriage. However after, she stops taking the pills she is much more susceptible to pregnancy than before. This effeet lasts for some time. Birth-control pills are also a-
the cases in which unwed girls become pregnant, the boys arelet off completely free. This seems completely unfair to the girls. As the Criminal Code of Canada now stands, it is an offense to sell or advertise birth-control methods or drugs. However, it is common knowledge that contraceptives are easily obtained at any pharmacy. Prescriptions for the 4\illss are also easily available to married women. Some
communities even have clinics tax-supported supplying contraceptives to needy families. After lengthy study, the Commons health committee in Ottawa recommended that facts about birth control and the distribution of contraceptives be legalized. A local druggist reported a considerable increase in the sales of all types of contraceptives eachfall when students return tothe campus.

Only 19 of the 315 institutions studied written policies covering contraceptives.

The Performing Arts Company of Michigan State University will present George Bernard Shaw’s St, Joan next Friday and Saturday in the Theater of the Arts. The play, one of Shaw ‘s classics, explores the realm of powerwho has it,‘how they use it, to what end. It is also a play of many ideas. One of the most important of them is the evolution of modern times out: of the medieval feudal period, Joan is portrayed as a’ spirit of the new age--a Renaissance spirit that refuses to submit to the media eval institutionalized church or to the demands of the medieval aris,tocracy. B&use the world into which she was born could not contain her, and her spirit was too threatening to it Joan had to be sacrificed. Shaw has woven all of these themes andideas into a masterful fabric, very much like a medieval tapestry. The MSU Performing Arts Company has taken the medieval epic and tapestry-like quality of the play as the keynote of their production.Using medieval conventions of Staging saint plays, director Frank C. Rutledge and scene designer Edward A. Andreason make use of the platform stage, decorated with cyclorama projections for several of the scenes. I Mr. Rutledge has assembled the largest touring Performing Arts Company in its four years of existence--14 men and 4 women. John Bailey, as Gauchon, and ~5~2 Miller have played major roles in Minesota and New York. Anthony Heald, appearing as the Earl of Warwick, is one of themost experienced undergraduate actors ever to appear at MSU. He won the MSU outstanding actor award three years in succession. Marshall Rosenblum is also experienced. In one season on campus he appeared in five of eight major productions.

Suddenly there was music. In the fall of 1965, splinter music organizations, which formed the nucleus for further groups, were started under the direction of composer-director Alfred Kunz. If you have any musical ability, there is a group on campus for you. In the ‘65~66 season, a brass choir was formed which played atall music concerts, and provided fanfares and processional for fall convocation and the opening of the library. The group has been resurrected from the present band for similar occasions this yeai’, such as installation of the new chancellor. The band was organized this fall using the brass choir as its nucleus. Worries caused by small instrumentation subsided when successful performances of works by Gustav Ho&, Henry Man&i and Leroy Anderson were achieved.

The practice times are Tuesday 6:00 for Madrigals, Tuesday 7:30 for Full Choir, Wednesday, 6:OOfor Concert Band, Thursday 5:30 for Chamber Orchestra. These times would change if group members prefer.

This is Canada’s Centennial. From coast to coast, thousands of afterdinner speakers will roll out the platitudes and proclaim what a great independent nation Canada is and how fortunate we are to dwell in such a prosperous and happy nation with its vast northern reaches and immense store of natural resources. Speechmakers will, as usual, point proudly to Canada’s unique past and social institutions. Over and over we will laud ourselves for having made it this far and declare that the path ahead lies clear. Ought we to be happy? This happy land sees a fifth of its people below the poverty line and another fifth in a
condition pleasantly described as “deprivedl One million functional illiterates are denied the pleasure of reading how great Canada is. Canada’s vast northern reaches stand empty and far from the gray little cities that huddle close to the American border for warmth. Our unique political institutions have just finished a year of scandal-mongering and blockage of action. Those very natural resources we took pride in have brought us into bondage. For, too long, primary production has kept us subject to other nations. We have spent our energies in sending our products in endless streams outwards. Had we but been blessed with the meager resources of a Sweden, we might have been forced to do things the hard way and produce finished
goods of high quality - a situation resulting in progresive social systems. Instead we have fallen victim to creeping continentalism and ask ourselves, “Why not unite? ” The answer to this question lies in Canada’s past. Through many years of hard and painful struggle, supported by brief flares of public enthusiasm, Canada has been brought into a position where we have the most enlightened social system in the Americas. It is this progressive spark that has made the struggle worthwhile ‘and points the.way forward for Canada. By carrying on in this tradition and meeting the challenges before us, we can make the next hundred years shine as brightly as the last. National

The paper also blamed the semester system for a rash of resignations among student loaders who said they felt unable to cope with academic and extra-curricular activities.

The seminar would probably be held some time early this month, Dr. Berland said.
CALGARY (CUP)-University of Calgary students recently defeated a resolution regarding financialaspects of universal accessfbflity to higher education by a majority vote of almost two to one. The resolution, passed at the 30th congress of the Canadian Union of Students in Halifax in September, rejects the present form of student aid for education, advocates free tuition and calls for the introduction of student stipends. It also demands equality of educational opportunity and that all Canadian students possessing the

Jim Gregory, supervisor of the Toronto Maple Leafs amateur system, has become a little upset over the migration of professional ’ hockey prospects to university ranks. Gregory feels that players aren’t getting competition which would compare with Junior A or Junior B caliber . He cited the example of two players with the Cornell University team, Bill Lewis and John Hughes’ who skated with a Maple Leaf Junior B team last year. Gregory said that the play of Lewis and Hughes has deteriorated this season. He even made the profound statement that, “Last year, Hughes and Lewis were so much better than Steve King (a teammate) that it wasn’t funny. This year Steve is with the Marlboros (of .the OnHockey Association Junior A) and he’s so much better than Hughes and Lewis it isn’t funny. He’s getting the compeddon and they aren’t.” Anyone who watches junior hockey knows that the performance of many players isn’t very predictable. Weknow of one Kitchener Junior A player who was one of the top performers on his team and in the league two seasons ago. Lastseasonhis play deteriorated to the point where he must have given his coach an ulcer. Mr. Gregory’s argument just isn’t valid. We suspect he’s the first in a long line of junior officials who will soon be trying to make excuses for the fact that junior hockey is dying. Once pro sponsorship of junior teams is withdrawn (at the end of this season) there won’t be anything to lure academically capable players away from attending university. After graduation these players will be able to enter pro ranks just as easily as those who play junior hockey. Hockey in Canada is progressing to the equivalent of football in the United States. You could probably count on the fingers of one hand the NFL players who haven’t graduated from university, Actually you can’t blame Mr. Gregory for trying. Such a transidon will probably be the end of his job. The prominence of the Canadian national team and the surge of university hockey will all but spell the end of the NHL’s farm system. Gregory’ and others in his position, will end up coaching university hockey. Come to think of it’ it wouldn’t . be a bad idea to have Gregory coaching a university team. He’s a dam nood coach. What does Warrior coach Don Hayes think of Gregory’s statement? “He sounds like a dying hound dog trying to get in his last licks “‘says Coach Hayes. Judging by some of the scar es resulting from meetings between university and Junior A competidon this season, it seems Gregory is way out in left field. The Laurentian Voyageurs dumped last year’s Memorial Cup finalists, Oshawa Generals, by a 6-3 count. And the Warriors last week tied two games with the Halifax Junior Canadiens. Not too bad considering that the W arrfors were playing without their regular goaltender. So James Gregory, best you be quiet before you make a fool of yourselfl

Communication is kevnoteof newCUSbureaucracv -
by Don Sellar CUP
OTTAWA--The job of converting campus apathy into social concern and social change has always been a formidable barrier to English Canada’s student leaders. But in the last days of 1966, there was evidence of a fresh approach being taken by the Canadian Union of Students, a new weapon being developed in the fight to shake complacency and channel the anxieties of concern into social action. Bolstered by a surprising new bureaucracy , CUS is now engaged in a new communications experiment with the 150,000 students it claims to represent. The problem they face is obvious: How can they communicate with a vast mass of students steeped in indifference and ignorance about their role in society? And how can they create action while still working on vital structureS reports which will determine their future course in societal involvment? Their past is against them. In other years, other “new student movements” born at CUS congresses have met the brick wall which separates them from students. They failed because there was no machinery to implement their old weary dreams.
This year, the message is roughly the same as it has been in other years. Fervent ideals of universal accessibility to postsecondary education and democracy in the university community were the main planks in a new student movement. But when its leaders left the delivery room in Halifax and returned to their campuses, they had a new weapon with which to implement the ideals they shared. They had a bureaucracy in Ottawa, slowly putting itself in a position where it could tackle the old-fashioned job. CUS president Doug Ward andhis staff of eight associate secretaries, four secretaries and a press --and mailing-room staff of three roIled up their collective sleeves and went to work. They followed up massive reorganization by entering a new age of specialization, in which field secretaries equipped with expertise in education matters, cooperative housing and university affairs travel to campuses where their specialized knowledge needed. They are trying to establish a contact with students. They are trying to cast aside the isolation which has dogged the CUS secretariat for years. , j
“?i < ,
There have been other significant changes in CUS. For example, the new communications secretariat presided over by former Dalhousie Gazetteeditor Terry Morley is now reaching 1,500 students with its monthly newsletter, CUS across Canada’. Previously information reached only CUS chairmen and council presidents. Another CUS first is the mailing of a pamphlet entitled ‘What’s CUS?’ to every Canadian student belonging to the national organization, The union is banking on a shelf full of program outlines to improve cornrnunications with students. These outlines represent original work by CUS associate secretaries. They emphasize ways and means of implementing CUS policy. “We’re trying to make the publications more relevant to the needs of campuses,” explains Morley. “People on the local campuses can read newspapers, we assume. Therefore, we’re not sending out newspaper reprints anymore.” CUS employees also point with pride to a new centralized office filing system and student government research documentation

center which will be in operation by the end of March, 1967. Ward has had to draw his staff together into an efficient office unit in order to function more effectively. Each week he presides over staff meetings, and promotes an open-door policy for CUS secretarial and printing employees with complaints to register . These employees are now armed with new fringe benefits and a conditions of work contract. Ward makes no bones about the difficulty he had establishing formal office procedures, but his efforts meet with frequent praise from those who work under him. He sees his job as “themostfrustrating time of my life so far”. Theeight withdrawals this fall, coupled with themassivehousecleaning job, have left Ward looking a lot paler than he did when hebegan work-in July. But this year there are indications that his new student movement won’t collapse from within. “Doug has successfully maintained the congress orientation,” one associate secretary observed. “But whether the member unions will be able to do this remains to be seen.” x ”

(It may be old news but I just heard the story recently.) It seems there is a smalI town in Northern Ontario and this small town has a highschool and this highschool has a principal. Anyhoo, one of the girls in grade 12 managed to get herself knocked up toward the end of the year. The principal threw her out,forbadeher to write her exams, even at home, and fixed it so she could never return to school. He then heard that another girl

was engaged and lmmedlately assuming that she was also pregnant, called her into his office and demanded to know thestate of her maidenhead. She, being a spunky maid, told him to stuff his questions up that cavity located between his posterior orbs. Unrebuffed, the principal threw her out until she could show a doctor % statement that she was not expecting. At home that night his obsession with his girl students’ virginity reached the point where the next day he decided to march the whole grade-12 class (females anyway) down for pregnancy tests. And he got away with it as far as I know! Almost anyone here at U of W can recall some similar bit of ignorance perpetrated by their highschool administrators. University students are very fond of criticizing the government’s university policy) but nobody ever tries to clean up these walking anachronisms in our highschool system. Maybe if university student counciIs. did a little organizing at the highschool level they couldimprove things.

To the editor: On December 5, the University of Waterloo had the pleasure of hearing some great words of wisdom from America’s finest two draft-dodgers. I listened to them for about 3Ominutes and left as the draft was only of secondary importance--the “sick America” was primary. The draft was merely the straw that broke the camel’s back. I’m writing this letter on the 25th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. That was the day the immoral Japanese visited the Americans. Today we have the immoral Americans visiting the North Vietnamese. But it is war that is immoral, not the nations involved. No one could honestly say that he longed for a bullet in the backsomewhere in Vietnam. Our grandparents didn’t enjoy the gas at Ypres nor our parents the welcome they received at the Normandy Beach, yet they showed moreguts than the supposed conscientious objectors of today. I’m not defending war as a g&ious and proud event--for as I have stated, it is immoral. But running away from a responsibility is just as immoral. If you don’t like the system then why don’t you stay and fight for your convictions ? If a jail term is the price you must pay, then pay it you must. What contribution can these draftdodgers make to our way of life? If difficult problems arise in this country will they run out on us too? Or will they stay and fight for their convictions ? I rather doubt it. BILL SPALL history 3

And I certainly agree with the reader who said that the so-called conscientious objectors--comment ly known as draft-dodgers--should be sent back where they ran from. We don’t nee< them in Canada. Because the Chevron seems to be all for this type of “man”youprobably wont print this--but at least you know how some of us feel. ROLF MARTENS arts I
To the editor: The recent rule against cardplaying in the engineering commonroom created a great deal of controversy in its first week of operation. The limited space for student activity on campus has made it tificult for off-campus students to fffl their spare hours withnon-acadernic pursuits. As a result commonrooms have become card-playing areas. With limited eating facilities, many students find it more convenfent and more comfortable to eat lunch in the commonroom, and combine eating with card-playing. With increased enrollment, these
facilities have become quite crowded and many students find they have to stand. Why card-playing should be banned from 11:30 to 1:30 as a result of overcrowding is difficult to imagine. I agree that many people spend too long playing cards in the comIf this is what the enmonroom. gineering Council used as a reason for its ban, it would have some logic behind it; however, the signs posted inthe cornmonroom state that the cardplayers are occupying too much space at lunch time and that it would be to everyone’s interests if they were to stop in the 11:30-l:30 interval. This is both untrue and ridiculous. It is untrue because the card-players will bein the commonroom whether playing or not. Further, there are many people (myself included) who quite willingly watch the games because they find this a relaxing way to spend lunch hour,. They often stand and watch, uncomplainingly, while eating, even though there are other eatingp’laces on campus where they could sit comfortably. The non-card-players seem indifferent to the card-playing itself and try to find a seat so that they may do what they please at lunch. I hope that the rule, whichis currently being broken every day de+ pite the threats of enforcement, wffl either be rescinded irnmediately or enforced for the proper reasons (which do not exist). The commonroom is not a lunch room, though
would have us believe
this. It fs a place where people should be (and have been in the past) free to do as they wish as long as they are neither destructive nor unlawful. MICHAEL R. WISE math 4

Coverage less. than SUPA If one were to believe the major papers in Ontario, SUPA, the Student Union for Peace Action, doesn’t exist. Throughout the entire conferencq not one of the major Toronto papers carried a story on the six-day mass gathering. Tuesday’s Globe and Mail failed to mention that a good number of the picketers at the American donsulate came from SUPA.. According to the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, the featured speaker, Paul Goodman, predicted “a revo-e lution so violent that it would be comparable to either the French or Russian revolution”. The Record’s reporter should ser-
iously consider a new line of work if this is the best he can do. For one thing, the Russian revolution that Dr. Goodman was speaking of was the one that occurred in 1905. Rather than advocating bloody revolution Dr Goodman was harking back to those revolutions’ first periods, which were peaceful and saw local rather than nationL governments prevailing. In these periods, both France and Russia enjoyed happy, prosperous times. Dr Goodman contends that only outside influences brought choas. It is unfortunate that this conference did not receive the coverage it merited.
We hope to get into FASS
Who’ll do. it?Welcome back to the campus, co-op students. If you felt left out of things last term, why don’t YOU give newspaper work a try? There will be a Chevron staff meeting at 3:30 this afternoon to sign up the hordes of eager cubs. Or drop in anytime and leave your name. The Chevron needs reporters. You don’t really have to be a creative writer. News writing simply involves digging up the facts, then stringing them together. The Chevron needs typists. This Have you a free involves typing. hour or three Mondays,, Tuesdays or Wednesdays ? The Chevron needs rewirte men. This involves writing publicity blurbs and stuff into news style. The Chevron needs photographers. And a darkroom manager and technicians. ’ The Chevron needs ad salesmen. To help pay. The Chevron needs mailers and morticians and circulation men and an editorial-page editor and cartoonists and and and. How about helping? Injuneers are welcum too. rp * * “Theycouldnotgetorganized--so theywentto Montrealandgot orgyized.” --Cleaning&ideasdep’t.
Last year another FASS night was again a complete success. And we didn’t see it. Why? Because we couldn’t make it over to a foyer during the hour and a half tickets were sold. Those in charge might say, “So what? The tickets were sold on a first-come-first-serve basis. That -6 is fair.” -We don’t think so. It was physically impossible for many people to be in a foyer when F.ASS tickets were sold. There were not enough tickets to satisfy everyone anyway, so we will admit that
many people would have been disappointed no matter what the arrangement for sales. Nevertheless, why can’t a specific number of FASS tickets be sold at various times on the days sales are supposed to take place? Such a policy would ensure that a broader cross-section of people is able to see this annual show. Certainly the arrangement wouldn’t sell more tickets. And it would take a little more time on Circle K’s part. The satisfaction it woud d bring to many people is worth the additional effort.

The second floor of East 3 in the Village was declared a disaster area one Sunday midnight at theend of last term. The trouble began when Ralph Catenacci, math IA, returned from home to find his room, 214, stuffed with crumpled news-paper. Minutes after the paper was cleaned up, an elbow (worth about 40 cents) in the radiator fractured--and steaming water flooded into the room. In seconds the water was six inches .deep and flowing into the hall. Pick
