If it is to have much influence on the students and faculty, it should be constituted within the structure of the universe.” Adlington emphasized that theunii versity did not suspect ulteriormodves in the proposal. “Their motive is to raise scholarships and bursar@. There’s nothing ulterior about that. “The math faculty has been very aggressive in promoting the University of Waterloo andparticularly mathemadcs throughout the highschools, and have been very concerned about the caliber of the students we attract,*’ he said. “With the withdrawal of our scholarship program (due to the Ontario Student-Awards Program last fall) othey are anxious to replace it.” The foundation would finance its

program from the profits obtained by publishing books and presenting special lectures. All proceeds would be devoted to the foundation’s stated purposes. Like any other corporadon, it could own property and would manage its own financial assets. If the four&don were ever dissolved, according to the draft charter, its assets would be turned over to the university for the faculty of mathematics. This is the only time the University of Waterloo is mentioned in the charter. The university is attempting to work out a compromise with the mathematicians, to include theRene Descartes Foundation within the structure of the university=4omewhat like the Institute of Design,for example. “I have directive from President Hagey to try to find a way toindlude of working this thing out,” said Adlington. “The prime difficulty is this ,*’ he “An insdtute is concerned ’ said. with research and teaching. This is to try to raise money. ‘Tain’t going to be easy.” ‘We have had a meeting with the math people to try to these aims and a few of usareworkingonthisnow.s’ Steve Ireland, president of the of Students, said, Federation “There’s a danger inherent in any power center in any organizadon which is not responsible to anyone. “If it% true that Stanton is to lead the thing, multiply that danger

His attitude toward student activities and involvement is directly opposite to ours.” Most of the members of theFour+ dation would be members of theUniversity of Waterloo math faculty. However, discuSSiOnS now going on include the advisability of having an adrninistradon member or more non-university people among the directors. Of the nine people named in the draft charter as founding directors, four--D rs . Gerald Berman, Don Cowan, Peter Por+o and Douglas W ertheim--are department heads in the math faculty. Two*-Drs.

Only two are from outside the university--Ronald Anderson, a Wingham highschool teacher who has been associated with the Junior Math Contest, and Dr. Stanton. Dr. David Sprott, dean of mathemadcs, said he knew little about the proposed Rene Descartes Foundadon. “So whatever else you have heard is probably wrong.” He said he did not know thedetails of the proposed foundadon-university reladonship. “I am not personally involved. I imagine it must take part within the university.” Dean Sprott also said there have been discussions of an insdtute of mathematical studies at Waterloo, but this is not the same,

Bricklayers on all campus building projects may go on strike Monday, June 26. Both the physical-education building and the campus center could be seriously affected. All other construction unions on campus are expected to respect the picket lines of the bricklayers, halting all work on these two buildings.

projectfor

new

option

Five Waterloo math students will ’ invade North York high schools this fall. The students will take part in a pilot project on an education option within the co-op mathprogram. Five additional students will be hired in January. If the pilot project is successful, &e cooperative educationoptin will be in full operation by the fall of 1968. “This will be the biggest cooperative program this university has ever seen,” said Dennis Eaton of the coordination department. A student will enter university in the fall term, remain for the full eight months and be on his own the first summer. InJallUaryofhis second year, the endre class will go out to work. On their work terms, students will be engaged in individual and remedial work, marking papers and supervisory duties. After several work terms, they will hopefully be ableto assume certain teaching dudes and eventually full responsibility for a class. The program was originallyplanned as a teaching option, but the name came under fire from the Ontario Teachers F ederadon and was changed to education option. Some arrangement may be worked out with the provincial government whereby co-op students who have completed the education option may bypass a year at theOntarioCollege

of Education. OCE is currentlypreparing to drop its six-weeksummer program. The extension of the cooperative program to teaching will almost inevitably bring the arts faculty into the program, despite reluctance on the part of some faculty members. Dr. J. Sayer Minas, the new dean

Do you know your past participles or future infinitives ? Beware--soon overseas students from such places as Vietnam, Afghanistan and Togo will overshadow you. Approximately 30 students meet daily for a two-hour class with Prof. Harry Tuyn of Renison’s languages department. Prof. Tuyn has had experience conducting similar seminars in England and Switzerland for many years. Professor Wyn Rees, principal of Renison’ was organizer of the seminar. The federal department ofexternal affairs also helpedindrawing these students together at Waterloo. Prof. Rees has felt for many years that there must be many foreign students in-Canadian universities who need additional instruction in English. In some instances, brightstudents experience great difficulty with their studies be-use they cannot understand rapidly spoken English or cannot express themselves. The last hour of the class I attended proved much more interesting than Ihad expected. Prof. Tuyn’s serise of humor helped- convert an ordinary grammar class into aninteresting series of situations related to the various points of English. Incidentally, for those of us who never did believe there is a difference between “would”and “should” consider the statement “He beats his wife.” One comment might be, “That’s what he would do.” There really is a difference between that and “That’s what he SHOULD do.” The classes are conducted with frequent references to F rench since most of the students have just completed their first year of university in Quebec. Of the four with whom I- spoke, Mami Mahfoud and ElKolli Boualem --both from Algeria--attended Laval, Lam Chi Hung of SouthVietnam took mechanical engineering at the University of Montreal and Meziti Mohamed, also from Algeria, attended Carleton.

Prof. Tuyn’s class of foreign students who are improving the manipulation of the English kin&age find time to manipulate a volleyball (Chevron photo by Glenn Berry) on the Renison campus. Their views of the courseand their professor were unanimous. They are finding both invaluable. Prof. Tuyn is, in their opinion, very open to discussion and extremelypatient. However, they had one complaint with the whole university. There is absolutely nothing to do in Kitchen-

er-Waterloo. They had been led to believe that their course was to be part vacation with some activities planned where they would meet more people. Until now there have been just norma1 classes with some seminars planned.

One can wellimagineDef ense Secretary MacNamara casually visiting Tel Aviv any day now for some lessons in beating a mouthy adversary. Back in New York, the U.N. Security Council put on a display that made our own House of Commons look almost efficient and rational. The Council debated one day for almost twenty minutes on whether to take a ten minute break. They decide against it, because Soviet Ambassador Federu enko could not comprehend that U.S. Ambassador Golberg had requested it for “delicate” reasons. A camera shot a couple of minutes later showed Golberg’s seat occupied by someone else. WORDS AND ENDS: Then there was a nervous grade eleven school-girl who wrote on her exam paper; Carthage battled Rome in the Public Wars.

“End the War in Vietnam” has been a student cause for several years now’ but only recently with the current turn of world events has it appeared the better cause. In 1963 a critic of the American presence in Vietnam was considered either one of the perenially malcontent or downright subversive and communis tic. The current student campaign in most Canadian universities has been in the area of university government. Traditionally the domain of the Administration and Businessmen--Boards of Governors, University government in the past ten years has been opening up more and more to professors who insist on having a say in the policies their university is following. F ormer Berkely president Clark Kerr’s term “‘multiversity” has encouraged a good deal of research into university governing structures and quite early in the game the student argument for representation was heard and headed. The Duff-B&ah1 Commission on University Government paid lip ser- ~ vice to the suggestion that universil: ’ ties accord students a role in its decision-making bodies. Quebec’s Parent Report did a better job of it, but both reports combined to plant the seed of an idea in the minds of both administrators and students. The result is thatin thereare many joint student-administration committees considering the quesdon. Carleton’s Davidson Dunton announced reccomendadons that place two students on the Board of Governors and three in the Senate; the University of Western Ontario has three students on the Senateand one on the Board;similar represent tadon is being considered at the&iversity of Saskatchewan, Montreal’s Sir, Gorge Williams Universit% the University of Waterloo, ati several other Canadian institutiOE3. The whole program is based on the premist that the university is undemocradc in structure, and that its’ policies should reflect the fedings of the “total university community “--including students, professors’ administrators, and governors. This argument has been largely

adopted by far-seeing educators. Students have impressed one and all in the past with their maturity, insight and responsibility whenprovided with opportunities which treat them as mature, perceptive and responsible individuals. Student governments,pardcularly those in the universities with enrollments of over 4,000 students, have heeded the call of the “muldversity ” armagonists who regard the bureaucracy of the university. much as Mario Savio of Berkeleys’s Free Speech Movement characterized it: “‘There is a time when the operadon of the machine becomes SO odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even tactitly take part’ and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the levers, upon all the apparatus , and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working - at all.” Surprisingly, this kind of, argud ment finds remarkable support among academics and administrators ; the academics because they respect the student’s ability to intellectualize in any given area, the administrators because they wish to channel what would otherwise be destructive energy directed against the administration--protest for protest’s sake--into constructive cridcism channelled into the governmental structure. Theadrninistrators are perhaps wise enough to realize that if the cridcs of theuniversity are given at minimum partial involvement in the governing of the university, their efforts then become directed upon the students . This kind of action would at onceinvolve cridcal student activists in thepracdcalities of university administration, and at the same time turn them into staunch pol.lcy in defenders the face of of university +h e students. It is therefore to the university’s advantage to accede to student pressures for representation in Senates, on Faculty Councils’ and even on dePartmei= l The most they can lose is a sense of primacy-*the least is a quieter campus.

Faculties compete - in “borrowing” MONTREAL (CUP)--Seven University of Montreal students who swiped Expo’s calendar clock as part of their carnival hi-jinks were acquitted in Montreal court recently , because of what the judge termed ‘lack of criminal intent’.’ The thefts are part of a tradition of french-Canada’s university CarFaculties compete in bornivals. rowing’ unusual articles from varIOUS parts of the city.

The speech was pun-laden and the wit continued: “About qy column (in the Record)--don’t think I’m going to waste all this material just on an audience like this”.

Ottawa announced last fall that it would give this money totheprovinces for disbursement instead of directly to the universities.

St. Jerome’s, with the University of Waterloo, was in a better position. The Ontario government last week announced a new policy: Grants will be given to universities according to a set formula--also on the basis of type and number of students enrolled. Religiously affiliated universities

US

will receive grants equal to half of what &ey would be entitled to as a secular institution under the new grant formula-or the equivalent of the discontinued federal grants, whichever is greater. Thus Waterloo Lutheran University will be able to continue much as it has in the past. Finandally , there is little change for St. Jerome’s, Father F~M felt his college is still better off within the university. “I don’t think we could give a quality educadon (if independent),” said Father Finn. He interpreted the government acdon thfs way: In effect if churches wish to continue subsidizing higher educadon the provin&lgovernment is willing to match the churchs ’ contributions.

Mixed art show is gallery’s best by Dale Martin Chevron

reviews

editor

The creative-arts board has finally presented an art exhibition of the type we recommended two weeks ago. Of course, it was not the Chevron’s urgings that brought this collection of modern art to this campus. All selections for the gallery of the Theater of the Arts are made a year in advance. It seemS we will have to wait a full year to see if our promptings have had any effect. The current exhibition is drawn from the members of the Toronto Color and Form Society. As such it contains the works of 29 different artists. This approach is far superior to the single-artist exhibition, since the art novice is given a much broader view of what art is really about. ‘A new departure for such an ex-

It is difficult to Select the hi@ points of theshow because thequality is u.nif~rm.l~ high. The most intriguing paintings were two oils by Cathy Senitt Harbison. ‘Timftitbd’ was intriguing for it seems to have an ageless quality combined with a modern mood, and the surrealistic ‘Tisapomm sig’has an indescribable, but not unpleasant, effect on the observer. Cissf Lundgren’s ‘Hen’ is an amusing little piece that delights with its hidden complexity. Mary Schneider’s ‘Foggy morning’ is a well-executed watercolor which is podceable in this show

TheUniversityshouldbe ‘we’, not “they’. It isn’t. by Steve

lectures and so on will be coming. A more glaring error is in his argument that “‘the capacity to participate meaningfully in the work of most of these bodies develops gradually out of extensive informal participation...It is doubtful that meaningful adminstrative participation can be got by students in this way.” Yet later we find this statement: “Students already have, and have already made use of, extensive means of influencing university policy in areas where their experience is fundamentally relevant. ‘Ihey already serve and vote on committees, present briefs...” Once again the good professor should make up his mind. Either the participation (what there is of it) is meaningful and successful,.or it ipl’t. He also has problems seeing how the definition of the university as a community of scholars -- “the proven academics as well as thenovices and academics --in-the-making” (the brief say)--leads to the de-sire for participation. The brief states, ‘ ‘W emust accept the capacity of the faculty to lead, to guide, to encourage, and to judge the performance of the novice, but not to govern the university to his exclusion. The faculty is the senior partner in the community, but not the only member. Only by aninteraction on all levels between the two groups of learners can the university provide theatmosphere of co-operation and cohesion that should characterize the academic community.” And there it is, sir. You can’t hide behind tritephrases about bombgenerated insecurity, cynical poli&ians and reactionary unive&ty prestients’bogeyrnen --PaulGoodman, Chairman Mao and the Oxford Group--people they could learn a lot from.

Ireland

Prof. Ralph Staal’s article, “Ideas are encouraging, disturbing and puzzling” (May 26), is a mostinteresting piece of work and I commend it to all interested in the university as a community of- scholars. But, quite respectfully, Imust say I find his article “encouraging,disturbing and puzzling” too. Expecially Puzzling. It’s encouraging because Prof. Staal, unlike many faculty and adtinistrators has seriouly addressed himself to the question of student participation in a radically reorganized university community. He has taken it upon himself to uphold the status-quo, both publicly and in university committees. He argues against the student having any place of importan& other than a limited consultive or after-the-fact role. (As he states it, student views can provide “an invaluable contribution to the feedback without which informed decisions cannot bemade.“) So while I strongly disagree with his views, I admire his obviously serious consideration of thequestion. He, at least, is not waiting to see what Bill Davis (Ontario’s minis& of university affairs) pulls out of the hat next. But I don’t admire his reasoning. Prof. Staal maintains on one hand that the Federation of Students brief does not deal with “‘the real life of a university . . . found in its classrooms, laboratories, studies and libraries .” ‘Administration, even of primary academic matters, is necessary but not primary,” he says.

discusd lectures later We’II

I agree. But, of course, the brief IS on university government -- that’s what the committee’s studying isn’t it? And, sure enough, several paragraphs later we have: “The brief is on university government -- this justifies its lack of reference to lectures ,laboratories and thelike . ..*’ Apparently Prof. Staal wants to have his cake and eat it too. I might add that the discussion of

TAKE

What is the university? What should it be? What are we looking for in (‘education”? These are important questions. In an effort to stir up discussion of them on campus, the Chevron printed major excerpts from the Federation of Students brief on university government in the.May 12 issue. The brief, invited by the senate committee studying university government, redommended sweeping changes in the present setup. An allpowerful new senate would replace the present board of governors and senate and a new “assem bly ’ ) of community persons would serve as a window on the outside. There would be student participation al all levels from departments to super - senate. Prof. Ralph A. Staal of the math department replied to the brief in the June 2 issue. This week Steve Ireland, the president of the F ederation of Students, defends the brief. The letters-to-the-editor columns are open. State your case.

the goal of a true community of scholars. Writing 50 years ago, the distinquished American educatorphilosopher John Dewey discussed the idea’ of a community when he said, “Persons do not become a society by living in physical proximity. Individuals do not even compose a social group because they all work for a common end. The parts of a machine work with a maximum of cooperativeness for a common result but they do not form a community.

The fact is that all is not right in the “university community”, if you can call it that. The “extensive informal participation” which P ref. Staal ,,says leads to “the capacity to participate meaningfully” isn’t even there. And we are not, with the present system of university government and the prevailing attitude of peoplelike the good professor, likely to attain

they view the university as somethan themselves and their colleagues, as something foreign or alien. The sheer frequency of “they” rather than “we” in talking about the university is evidence of what has been called the alienation of the university’s members from what they perceiveas theuniversity. Even theDuff-Berdahl report says the students and faculty ARE the university, but I’m still waiting to find someone from these groups who feels this is recognizedinmore than lip service. - As Prof. Staal points out, thereis now some consultation between policymakers and the university’s members. But, particularly in the case of students, such consultation too much resembles discussion between superior and inferior, or employer and employee, and as he states, it is usually to gainpost-hoc support for decisions already made. The very idea of students “preserving their independence’” and the university benefiting from “feedback” shows the division of the university into two separate bodies and not a community at all. And this idea is inherent in the University of Waterloo’s structure and government - the idea that the student is something acted upon, a passive person to be “dealt with” and who is worth $1320 or a multiple thereof. While this attitudepersists, students will naturally view the university as an alien promulgator of rules and regulations. I am not saying that the participation of a few dozen students in the higher levels of decision-making will make a lot- of difference, Neither, Prof. Staal, did the brief. We envision student participation in the complete range of activities of the university community. This in-

Our proposals for university government are not the be-all and &d-all. As Prof. Staal implies in his discussion of representation, the onus was on us to come up with a more democratic form of government. W e have been trapped by the same concept of democratic government as found in the rest of society and to a limited extent in the senate of our university. But if he can answer the questions he poses for the faculty, as valves all students - for example, right in the classroominsuch things as teaching and exam methods. he expects us to answer them for the students, I am sure all thegreat thinkers of the past, present and future will be anxious to learn them. This article has been mainly an answer to Prof. Staal’s reaction. The benefits other thanimprovement of campus climate--the wider spectrum of viewpoints from which policy decisions may be drawn and the development of participation-minded graduates--cannot be discussed here. But then they weren’t really challenged either. Some questions for Prof. Staal and everyone else: How many students at U of W have any real conception of the goals of the university and are working consciously to make these goals a reality through their own academic and co-curricular activities ? How many students are really working up to capacity and ,are concerned that the educational program provides the optimum in interest, stimulation and quality? -HOW many students consider the extracurricular activities, to which they give SO much time, in relation to the educational values of the university 3 If it is true that the most meaningful part of a student’s allegiance is to a club or residence or athletic team, rather than to the university and its educational tradition, is it because of administration aid faculty policies, written or otherwise, which discourage student interest in educational policy? And finally, do students feel that they are members of a community uf scholars which values them and their ideas as an important, essential part of its composition? Do faculty? Anyone for a REAL university colnlnunity?

In a swimming hole, normally known as Seagram Stadium, theEastern Canada senior track and field championships couldn’t be expected to break records last weekend. Events not rti between thunderstorms on Saturday were postponed until Sunday. Water was pumped from the track three times and even with the stadium crew *s efforts s the track was sluggish, causing competitors to tire easily, and manywithdrew. Only one field record was braken-Bob Sandieson of Toronto set a Canadian Midget record of six feet two inches in the high Jump. No track records were broken. Saturday’s competition is a step in choosing Canadian teams for the Pan-American Games in Winnipeg in July. Eastern Canadians now go to the trials in Saskatoon. Bill Greenough of Hamilton won the long jump and triple jump, although he had trained for only one week. Tony Powell also won two events--the 220-yard and 440-yard competitions. Among the women’s competitions, Roberta Picco ran the 880 in 2:17.6 and the mile in Q13.6, winning bandily. Janet Maddin won thelOO-yard by a tenth of a second and the 220 by a tenth of a second and the 220 by three-tenths of a second. U of W student Bob Finlay ran the mile in 4:14.4 under the Toronto.
