.Stu&nts demand- parity, OTTAWA (CUP)-Over 300 students at the faculty of social science at the University of Ottawa occupied their school Tuesday night in a battle with their faculty to win parity on all department decisionmaking bodies. The vote, 229-74 in favor of occupation, was taken at 6 pm and a half hour later, an occupation force of 60 moved in to spend the night. Roughly 75 percent of the faculty’s students voted. The students say they will remain in the school, which takes up one floor of the administration building, until their demands are met. The plan of action thus far is to exclude professors rather than students. The occupation forces require each teacher to sign a pledge honoring student demands before he may enter a classroom.

9 Number

The students are free to meet in class sessions and conduct classes. Senior students have been made available to help organize classes but each course is free not to hold classes if they wish. The occupation will be in full force during the day with a token group of 30-40 at night. Thus far, only one professor has signed the pledge and few classes have gone on schedule. The conflict stems from a month-long series of negotiations, proposals and counter proposals between students and teachers. The students presented a 30-page report to the faculty in mid-October after two days of study session The report was far-ranging and primarily covered teaching techniques, bilingualism, reference libraries, and student representation.

A university of Waterloo research team, headed by Dr. William Forbes of the chemistry department, is providing the Canadian public with figures on the tar and nicotine content of Canadian cigarettes. The team, also including Dr. Jack Robinson and grad student Mike Stanton provided the data for a report issued Wednesday by national health and welfare minister James Munro. The project, the first of its kind done in Canada, studied the products of 85 different cigarette companies, with a particular emphasis on the relative tar and nicotine levels. “We have two main purposes in releasing this information”, Munro said. “One is to allow people to know the tar and nicotine content of the cigarette they smoke, so they might if they wish, avoid those with high levels of tar and nicotine. The other is to allow them to choose if they wish, low-. tar, low-nicotine cigarettes.” He added in the report though, “Cigarette smoking is a serious health hazard. We know of no safe cigarette or safe way to smoke.” The minister explained the effects of tobacco tar and nicotine. “Tobacco tar contains several irritating chemicals and several substances that can cause cancer or contribute to cancer production. Nicotine causes the heart to beat faster, temporarily elevates the blood pressure and tends to reduce the temperature of the hands and feet because of its constricting effect on the small blood vessels. Nicotine is assumed to be the basis ,of the dependency that develops to cigarette smoking. ‘? Smokers are advised by Munro not to rely on the brand of the cigarette as the only way to reduce the inhalation of cigarette smoke constituents into the lungs. In addition to tar and nicotine

Negotiations broke down over the parity demands of students who would not accept less than 50 percent representation on any body. The faculty had countered with a sliding proposal that varied between 25 percent and 35 percent representation. Students claim all 12 members of the political science department (one of three in the faculty, along with sociology and economics, supported the student proposals but they failed to get a majority. There are 36 teachers in the department. The students rejected the faculty proposal and called for the occupation. The administration thus far has been content to let the social science faculty handle the affair. There is no indication the administration plans any action.

0 professor there are several toxic gases such as carbon monoxide which may not be reduced along with the tar and nicotine levels. Munro suggests the amount of smoke inhaled can be reduced by l lengthening the period between puffs l not inhaling l removing the cigarette from the mouth between puffs 0 throwing away a long butt because tar and nicotine collects in the tobacco as the cigarette is smoked and the shorter the cigar-’ ette is puffed, the more concentrated the tar and nicotine in the smoke becomes. l of course, best of all, by not smoking. Of the 85 brands tested during the 18 month study, Ransom kingsize with the Stickman filter had the lowest average level of tar and nicotine per cigarette. Other brands with low levels were Richmond king-size, also with a Strickman filter, Viscount king-size filter and Craven A regular with a filter. The cigarette with the highest level of tar and nicotine is Export king-size plain. The level is more than four times the level of the Ransom brand. Other brands with high levels are Benson and Hedges premium filter menthol and Mark Ten kingsize plain. At a press conference Wednesday afternoon the research team headed by Forbes was questioned about the project and its implications. The research was initiated by the ministry of national health and welfare because it is concerned about anything that concerns the public health. Forbes took on the project through his interest, as a chemist and a statician, in the subject of mortality rates and life expectancy. Even though similar research has been done in the United States, it was the feeling of the ministry that the Canadian public

They did lock the library before the occupation vote but the students found a key. Early Wednesday morning, the occupiers set up barricades at the entry to the third floor wing of the social science faculty. They allowed only social science students into the area. Students from other faculties who take classes were turned away as were their professors. There was some discussion but no one tried to push through the barricade. Six social science professors were confronted with the commitment forms, only one signed. Last month, in a similar situation during the study sessions, brief fist fights erupted between commerce studvents determined to get to classes and social science students equally determined to keep the floor blocked off.

should have up-to-date information about cigarettes sold in Canada. “Much of the equipment was purchased from the United States but our techniques differ somewhat from those used before,” stated Robinson.” It took a long time to standardize our procedures.” The smoke sampler (seen in picture) draws a puff on each cigarette once a minute. A very efficient filter traps all the constituents of the smoke. After five cigarettes the increase in weight of the filter can be measured.

The substances in the filter are then distilled to retrieve the nicotine. The amount of tar can be found once the amount of nicotine has been determined. The researchers have been using a computer to deal with the large amount of data obtained. Over 5000 cigarettes have been analysed since the beginning of the project. Forbes declined to make a statement on how the report will affect the tobacco industry. “The ministry is much better qualified than we are to comment on this. It is fair to say, however,

of trespass,

Six Waterloo students involved in the October 4 distribution of the Ontarion in Kitchener-Waterloo high schools were convicted Thursday of petty trespassing by Kitchener magistrate Allen Baron. Fined $10 each were: Larry Burko, arts 2, Ed Hale, arts 2; Gary Robins, journalism 2; Jim Keron, arts 3; Rod Hay, math 2; and Vicki Mees, arts 2. The students had pleaded not guilty to the charge. Several teachers earlier in the trial testified they had asked the students to leave the school when they were found distributing papers during the 2 pm change of classes.

students

The students and demanded pal.

Eventually, a policeman was called and he arrested Burko when he refused to give identification. The others were summonsed later. One teacher said the distribution was “orderly’ ’ and the only disturbance caused was that students wanted to read the paper in class. The students testified they had sought legal advice and had understood anyone had a right to be on school property until told to leave by the principal.

there is a tendency for the industry to develop lower tar and nicotine cigarettes.” When asked about the effect the report would have on the smoking habits of the consumer Forbes said their role as researchers was to provide the data. “Medical people in the ministry drew the conclusions and made the official recommendations. Condemning smoking as a hazard to health and a factor which can shorten life expectancy is the same as condemning excessive weight. All we can do is supply the information for the public to use.” Although the project studied only cigarette smoke, Forbes said pipe and cigar tobacco is less harmful than cigarette tobacco. The reasons are not fully known but the difference in burning temperatures is a factor. Forbes himself is a pipe smoker. “The Strickman filter was not tested separately from the cigarettes which used it but the results seem to indicate that the low tar and nicotine level could be attributed to the filter,” said Forbes. The team plans to continue their study of tobacco smoke. A new smoke sampler capable of handling 20 cigarettes at one time is to be used soon. They will continue to test popular brands of cigarettes on the market for the ministry of national health and welfare. There is also consideration being given to a study of the actual tobacco plant.

Several times in the trial Barron had to step in to rule out any discussion of the paper’s content. - “I’m only interested here in the charge of petty trespassing”’ he said. The paper, published by the University of Guelph student newspaper, caused considerable controversy in Twin City education circles. The paper was very critical of the educational system which it ref erred to as a “brain laundry’ ’ . Some 34,000 copies of the highschool supplement were distributed in Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, and Hamilton.

Grudgingly the class had to agree that the solution was “brilliant”, as the prof put it, and tittered nervously at his victory signhands together, and arms waving on high-the champ. The next problem-a “ tremendous” one-also had a brilliant solution, which we were comforted, we couldn’t be expected to get. Although simple, leading questions were thrown out. Honsberger only saw pale, despairing faces as answer-and grateful glances as he wrote the proof on the board. The final problem considered in the class was a relatively simple goemetric question, definitely a relief from the two previous tasks. Although one girl’s suggested solution was lauded as a “brilliant thought”, she unfortunately “blew it.” Nevertheless, the prof led the class in a round of applause for her attempt. As the class prepared to leave in the last few minutes of the hour. the prof expressed the hope they were enjoying the classes. As the students’ mutterings gradually drowned out his plea, in a serious voice he ordered “Please get up and leave if you thought that this was a beautiful class today.” Amidst loud laughter, they all did.

It is not one of the so-called “snap” courses, but one aimed at training prospective high school teachers to solve varied problems through “discovery and invention.” Prof. Ross Honsberger does an excellent job in making his classes enjoyable. This is one math course which is not dependent on those abstract theorems and type problems. These students are exposed to hundreds of solved problems during the year, and are expected to “tuck away little bits of information” they pick up, and to apply them to other problems. Each question is different, and their solutions require a bit of ingenuity and a lot of thinking. How is a prof supposd to make a student think? Honsberger’s lectures manage, first, to get the student’s attention by his usual introduction-“Good morning. fans. ” Their interest is sustained for about 50 minutes by a liberal dose of showmanship and humor. The Tuesday lecture was a bit more serious. To determine the triangle of largest area which can be inscribed in a given circle. the fans were assured, was a “very hard question, but a nice one.” That the required triangle was equilateral was immediately obvious to some bright students; it took close to half an hour to prove this, by clear

In case anybody’s wondering, I’d like to put it publicly just where I tand on all this horrible radical business and that terrible commielinko, Brian ller. You see, it seems some of the Responsible Students have made the omment that “If Steve Ireland were president, we wouldn’t have all this ,onfron ta tion business and things would be nice and calm. ” Sorry, but that just isn’t so. This year’s student council is merely using different rear’s did. And there are very good reasons for that.

tactics

than last

For one thing, there were many confrontations last year which people fon’t remember because they weren’t adequately covered in the Chevon. That’s one reason we twice published the Council News, so people vould know what we were doing.

Our council blamed .the Chevron for poor coverage, although the leneral meeting idea perhaps should have been used to inform and inolve more people. But when it came to our “constructive” for, if you Re, “responsible’fl) programs, we found tremendous apathy in students nd faculty alike. The response to the Quality of Education program was discouraging, although about 50 people got involved. (It is interesting that none of ‘he Responsible Students were connected with this program in any way.) Nhat faculty response there was was usually hostile and so was adminstration reaction. Likewise, appeals to faculty and administration to join in a meaning‘ul and honest discussion of the university government problem went Inheeded. Brian and his new council took over in March and ran into the same yroblems we had. The “responsible”, behind-the-scenes, let’s-beveasonable-men approach didn’t work for them either.

I feel a vote for anyone else but Brian ller and the radical slate or Pers ons who support most of their platform is a vote cast to deny any sort o meaningful change the university needs SO badly. I agree with the Radical Student Movement;analysis of the ills o society and the university. The university, instead of attacking those ill: by helping people learn to think and make their own decisions, stifle: them and forces conformity to the existing values which make our so ciety one based on the maxim that it is good to exploit one another. My entire sympathies and support are behind Brian and the radics candidates. I ask that .you consider carefully what they stand for be for bo ting for any other candidates.

/ by Glenn Pierce “All of the good public relations being built up by the students as individuals is being destroyed by one thing-poor lousy publicity,” said Waterloo mayor Donald Meston. He was speaking to the Chevron about the- Kitchener-Waterloo Record and the image of students in the community. -The initial issue 1 was -a story in Monday’s Record about a meeting of the Waterloo police commission (see below). At the monthly meeting of the commission, police chief, Harold Basse gives a report of items involving the police force. When asked about the juxtaposition I

of the arrest of a murder suspect and a student demonstration on thesame day, Meston gave this reply, “IfI you know the Record, unfortunately they take a conglomerate group of things and try to tie them ’ all together and they , miss.” The Record story deal extensively with comments of the commission members I concerning students at Waterloo. Many , of ’ these quotations were important statements of opinion, but no .elaboration was given. Car a&dents and. a $15,900 theft of books were mentioned in the story before it returned to a comment by Mes?~ ton which could have been in answer to Magistrate Kirkpa-

trick’s statement that “student . ed by magistrate Kirkpatrick is unrest and the publicity given to of the minds of people in this it is the most serious form of community as to what is going pollution today. “, Meston again on” “‘People are not being informed criticized the publicity give‘n but rather misinformed.

The attitudes of the students are ~ most important and the general public will listen to anything that seems reasonable.” In his capacity as mayor, Meston said that he has to question what is going on at the university but it is up to the university to let the public know the facts if no other accurate information is available. “The students have done nothing to disrupt ‘classes or the run- ~ ning of the university but have .. just found a lot of fault with a lot of things. ,They perhaps have - ’ .’ had a poor method of protest in some instances.

The student

as product

Last week-a man told a group of university presidents to help students, get summer jobs by going “Madison Avenue”. The-man was W.‘H. Rutledge, Director of Operations for the University Career Planning Association, and the occasion was the annual meeting of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada-God , bless them. Well, I promptly forgot the whole traumatic vision of cello-wrap students until I popped -into Woolworth’s yesterday and ordered my lunch to the plaintive strains of free enterprise-Noel.. no kidding. Old Rutledge was right,’ I thought, it’s a buyer’s market. He’s hustling summer jobs. in November and the shop keeper is acting like -“‘lest we forget” refers to last year’s profits. Universities are. big business; students are our most important product. A GOOD ZiPPER

’ It doesn’t matter what material it’s made out of as long as it has a good zipper. Do you have a good zipper? More important-is your university president telling the world about I- your zipper and what your zipper can do for the world? W,. H. said what you have to do is make film clips for 1ocalT.V. and sound tracks for public service announcements on the radio. Sell students like you sell a new car or, better still, like you sell something personal. How. about: “Industrialists, decide for yourself. Would you rather sit back and count the days on the calendar waiting for those tense moments, or go swimming and dancing any day of the month. Well you can. “Looking for something cheap to fill in those little gaps in your assembly line? A little something to allow you to operate in freedom and comfort? Our product will let you rest easy without the embarrassment of a bulky payroll or expensive retirement plan. - “When your busy season ends, would you rather worry ‘What do I do now?’ or simply dispose by flushing away? “You probably know what we’re talking about now. The complicated versus the modern way-why get involved with messy unions, the agony and restrictions of arbitration, when a simple summer insert will do the job? ’ “Our product, developed by doctors and now used by millions, will *take up the uneven flow often experienced during peak periods. : “A small investment will give you more confidence, peace of mind and flexibility. Let you slip out for that game of golf without the feeling that you’ve forgotten something. “We have the student to suit your own personal problem, coming in junior, medium and extra strong. “But don’t just take our word forit-decide for yourself .” NATIONAL

ORGANIZATION

What we need, however, is more than a spot on radio here and a blip on the telly there. And Rutledge is the first to admit it. , He suggests a national organization linking students,- administrators and government in common cause with some kind of overall theme. Christmas has “the spirit of giving”; Hallowe’en, “trick or treat”. For our project I think we can project I think we can profit from the rather industrious group of students at McGill. who say: “Management is where the action is”. Dynamic, what? Now that the theme and goals are out of the way, a name to convey our message. What’s in a name? you might say. Everything, if you’re selling. The boys in the head office submitted the following: the National Institute for Gaining a Greater Entrepreneurial Resource (NIGGER) . -Our- letters of introduction are now on the presses and will be out within the week.’ / They read : “Dear factory owner: If your profits are falling off because of increased labor costs, NIGGER is the answer to your prayers. The National Institute for ‘Gaining a Greater Entrepreneurial Resource is a tripartite organization for the collection and distribution of ;hat all-important product, labor, into the mainstream of our economy. We carefully screen our recruits with the understanding that the university is here to serve you, the man who is making our country great. W,e won’t recommend just anybody. Only qualified technical and people , willing to work for low salary under demanding ,professional conditions. Why not let our representative drop up to see you? A NIGGER man can estimate your individual requirements in just a few hours. ’ ’ Give yourself a break this summer-Make profits bigger, go NIGGER. . Yours for free enterprise Tom Black, Head NIGGER Fellow students, the answer to summer unemployment is close at hand. As a NIGGER student both you and your country will benefit. Don’t delay; send away today for more information and a free button depicting an open palm, the national NIGGER symbol. Remember, think NIGGER-it’s good for you. L

not a member of the same faculty or school as any of the members appointed by Senate or the Faculty Association (see Note 1) members of the University’s staff appointed by the Vice-President, Operations, after consultation with the Treasurer and the Director of Academic Services members appointed by the Federation of Students, each of whom shall be registered students in the University of Waterloo and one of whom shall be a graduate student . member appointed by the executive committee of the Alumni Association of the University of Waterloo, said member to be an alumnus of the University member appointed by the nominating cornmittee from outside the University, who shall be a resident of Ontario and whose reputation as a scholar and whose knowledge of Ontario universities is well established

14 Notes :

huh

I think the food-services department is willfully contributing to the retardation of scientific research and other academic pursuits of the graduate students and to the general slackening on the part of the undergraduates by starving them out on ‘Saturday evenings and all day Sunday when food-services buildings are locked tightly. The ticket or card system enforced in the Village can’t be ob-’ served regularly by all because of the overcrowding inthe Village dining halls and the regimentation that goes with the system. There are hundreds of students, both graduates and undergraduates, who work in the library or the laboratories during weekends and deserve to be fed at least out of humanitarian considerations. This could be done by making cafeteria privileges available to them.

I t 1) Faculty members are to be selected in the order listed above. (2) Appointment of each person to the nominating committee as defined above - shall be conditional on his agreement to serve. “under an oath of silence” regarding deliberations of the committee. (3 1 (a ) If any member of the nominating committee becomes or seeks-to’ become a candidate for appointment to the office of President, he shall resign from the committee. (b) If the association of any member of the nominating committee with the University as defined above is terminated or in any way significantly altered, or if for any reason any member is unable to carry out his respo.nsibilities on the committee, the nominating committee may request him to resign from - the committ&!. (c) The nominating committee shall seek to fill any vacancies which may occur in the same, ,way as the original appointees were named to the committee.

_It is ridiculous to believe the administration . will__- give up voluntarily the power they hold and be relegated to being civil servants. So I’m voting for Iler and I call ‘myself a radical now because that’s the only way .a meaningful change will take place. IAN ANGUS philosophy 2

Dr. J.G. Hagey, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Waterloo, on P\lovember 14 requested the university’s Board of Governors to seek his successor as president. The Board-immediately passed a motion to establish a committee to develop the procedure that will be followed in seeking candidates who might be considered for an appointment as the next president of the University of Waterloo. Following is the statement and the procedure that was prepared:

According to the University of Waterloo Act, Sections 22 (1) and 22 (1) (a ), the authority to appoint and remove the’president rests with the Board of Governors. However, it is the desire of the Board to appoint a President who would enjoy the acceptance of members of the University community1 Therefore, the following procedure has been established to guide the Board in the selection and appointment of the President. (1 J There shall be a nominating committee established. Its general terms of refer- . ence will be: s (a ) to establish -criteria to guide it in selecting candidates ; (b) to recommend to Senate a slate of not less than two and not more than four candidates. ’ (2 ) Senate will be asked to vote by secret ballot on the slate presented by the nominating committee and inform the Board of the number of favourable votes cast for each candidate. This is to provide the Board with reasonably accurate information as to the general university acceptance of the candidates following which the Board will vote by secret ballot to determine the candidate. who will receive the appointment. (3) If this procedure should fail to result in a ’ clear choice of any one candidate the Board of Governors will re-activate the nominating committee and request it to submit a new slate of candidates. The nominating committee’s membership shall be as follows: 1 The Chancellor of the University -(who shall be Chairman.) members appointed by the Board, one of 2 whom shall be the Chairman of the Board or his delegate 2 members appointed by Senate from two different faculties or schools of the University (see Note 1) 2 members appointed by the Faculty Association from two different faculties or schools of the University, and neither of them from the same faculty or school as either of the two members appointed by Senate (see Note 1) 1 member appointed by the Vice-President, Academic, after Consultation with the deans, who shall be a member of a faculty or school of the yniversity, but

If a community should be governed by the people who comprise that community, shouldn’t stud; ents and faculty be the only people represented on governing bodies? I don’t think the administration. is ready to consider this question. I really don’t think communication with the administration is possible. We should keep , trying but not count on it. The only way to democratize this (or any) university is to support the radical student movement and confront the administration on is-

f

Procedure To Select A President For The University Of Waterloo

It is unfortunate so few people were present at the meeting to discuss university government. The lack of’ communication was obvious. When students were talking of the principle of people making decisions that affect their lives the administration (represented by Dr.- Ted Batke) came back with replies concerning the number of student seats on the senate. ’

Students who fervently present their idealistic and noble motives appear extremely small and punitive. in the face of a headline such as ‘The unknown museumis your Uncle Gerry a speciman here? ’ I have* only seen president Ha-. gey once. On that occasion I admired his courage as he addressed a few words to the assembly. I saw him as a‘ man who had a vision-a vision which resulted in the University of Waterloo. * I would hope president Hagev is above being hurt by the cruel and unjust references frequently published in the Chevron. At the same time, let’s remember we do damage to the student cause when we allow ourselves to‘stoop . so low. I MARY DUECK grad German & Russian Quakers thank concert funs . for Vietnam relief support I would like to thank the many members of the university community who contributed their time and effort to the fund-raising project which centered on Anton Kuerti’s concert in Kitchener on September 29. The concert was a splendid financial success just as it was an exciting musical event. ! The original goal of $1500 was met and a cheque Ior this amount has been sent to the Canadian Friends Service Committee in Toronto for use in the Vietnam medical relief program. This money will .buy approximately 40 of the emergency medical kits displayed on campus during September. . I hope those who gave their time and effort to raise money for medical relief have found some satisfaction in the success of the concert and perhaps were rewarded by Kuerti’s concert. .

good students

This letter from a Toronto insurance company was received by a university debartment chairman and passed on to the Chevron through another facutty member whose comments are included at the end: RE: STUDENT AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE All too frequently these days we are hearing and reading about student unrest -and student demonstrations .accompanied by vandalism and violence. We at _-__-_. feel there is a large percentage of the student body that is, not involved in such demonstrations, but is mainly interested in pursuing the education of their desire. As a result, these students are maintaining good grades in their academic work and are progressing along the road to becoming good citizens who will be leading figures in the business word and in our country in the not too distant future. To help these students in their quest for education we have devised a Good Student Automobile Insurance Program which will save the individual 30 percent of his annual premium if he can qualify. Our reason for writing to you is that we would like to be given an opportunity to have an article appear in the student newspaper published at your college explaining the requirements and advising the students how they can go about applying for coverage under this plan. We thank you for taking the time to read this letter and hope you will agree with what we are endeavoring to do for these Good Students. yours very truly, etc. That is, stupid and k~ people riot, and non-inv&ement equals good .. m a_ CItIzenship.

Communication is apparently not accomplished only by mouth. In fact, after seeing for the first time pantomime as live theatre, it seems that motion and silence can be a more effective mode of communicating emotion than speech. Tony Martanaro and Michael Henry gave a thrilling performance in pantomime last Friday night in the Arts Theatre and totally captured their audience making them believe things that weren’t and feel things that were intangible. This is the true art of mime; to create a world as Martanaro expressed it, “that isn’t really there.” And as masters of their art they did so. The program consisted of fourteen vignettes, some requiring both artists, some only one, but all expressing a great amount of feeling. The movement seemed effortless but it was in fact a gruelling exercise in self discipline and muscle control. It was smooth and although no physical props were used the illusion of force, of strain and of movement, even though the artist was stationary, was created for the audience to experience. The pantomime was humorous but not without a message. Within the creations lay an idea to be communicated or some aspect of human character to be explored. In the scenes dealing with death and power such as The Dictator, Games and Puppet, genuine pathos was felt by the audience who sat enthrahled and

as silent as the artists on stage. This was control of a audience. The only break from silence was from laughter and applause. The mimists themselves conti-olled the production as well as

the audience. Lighting was directed by Henry and was executed in a manner that enhanced the emotion of the time. It aided the climax of each scene. There was no set except for two massive

folding flats which matched the stage and provided a false proscenium arch behind which the artists could retire between scenes. The pantomime is an old art. The pantominists were dressed in black except for their faces which seemed to be lightened by makeup instead of coloured as in an usual stage production. From this technique one was given the impression of two surrealistic reflections of men, somewhat like dolls. Emotion was conveyed through the face and strengthened by the flow of the body. The effects achieved were both frightening and beautiful. Earlier in the afternoon Montanaro gave a demonstration to about fifty people (mostly drama majors and staff) during which he had aiding him in demonstration Mr. Hemry and ten people from the group. They participated well during the mime’s lecture. It was not ‘an ordinary lecture however and certainly not like anything I’ve had seen on campus In the way of teaching. Kvcn in the evening he enraptured his audience, that afternoon he made them believe. He said that mime was from within. And although there are techniques in movement, the emotion is from the heart. The true mime, the master of his art form, eventually forgets the technique and improvises. The students performed well for a first attempt. But, the crowning touch was a demonstration Picture

“I abhor fantasies, I could never see the point of fantasies, but somehow it sparked me,” said Professor W. Ready, “the Tolkien Man in America, speaking of Lord of the Rings. Ready’s talk began with a discussion of Tolkien the man and the genius including his exotic background, his trange and fascinating early life, and his later life at Oxford, “the sacred town”. He is a man who has been to the top of the mountain. This strange man who never quite listened to what was being said to him, this man who is on a different mental wave length, has evoked in Ready, and consequently in his listeners, an evident and vital enthusiasm. In his critical book, A Tolkien Relation, Ready is not at all lauditory, quite the reverse in fact. The major faults of Lord ok the Rings, he feels are four -incidentally, these did not.stop Ready from reading the entire 1200 page trilogy for the first time at a single sitting.

of inner emotion by two volunteers. Martanaro persuded them to think from the heart and to transfer that emotion to facial expression and movement. The boy was to think of love and focus upon the firl. The girl was to think of love and focus upon her body. The result was a transfer of emotion to the audience and the audience was silent as the emotions came into being and were manifested in the movement of the two persons. The small group experienced the emotion evident in the artists as he told of his art. For a man whose art is silent, he expressed emotion as beautifully through words as he does in the theatre. Mr. Montanaro said that his limit was unattainable. When he wanted to express an idea or become ‘something or someone else, he remembered being that thing. If the memory was not really there, he pretented he remembered, and thus he could become anything. The control involved was tremendous. The evening was exhilarating. The only pity was that the theatre was, at the most, two-thirds full. I’m sure that if a return engagement could be arranged, as I hope it will be, a full house would be a certainty. The men knew and loved their art. This was evident in their performance. The concert was not work to Montanaro and Henry but a form of expression-a communication to an audience.

jolly language” and fburthly for his copious use of footnotes, maps, references and faulty index. After his discussion of Tolkien and his work it came as rather a shock when Ready told us that it is one of our greatest follies to relate a writer to his creation or the creation back to the writer. The writer doesn’t know what he is doing, and according to Ready, that’s what critics are for! The message of a work is an individual communion between the work and the reader and nothing should come between them. One of the great faults of our educati’onal system, he feels, is that it inserts forms and structures that interfere with this direct communion. Tolkien was a member of that rare species of “great teachers”. Students were litterly hanging from the beams in his lectures. Tolkien refuses to be called either a creator or an artist but prefers instead to be termed a subcreator. Ready says he is a man divided between this awful genius which he has and his desire to be a proper Englishman. Ready’s talk left one with a taste of the genius of one man trying to relate to something that never was but always will be. Friday,

TUESDAY,

Beethoven would certainly have rolled over (being anti-Baroque) at the excellent baroque concert in Guelph Tuesday evening. The University of Guelph presented the Concentus Musicus from Vienna in Memorial Hall. The Concentus Musicus (taken from a baroque music term) was founded in 1954, with the basic concept of interpreting ancient music on the original instruments and with uncompromising insistance on the performing customs of the original period. “We feel we can play better with the instruments of the period. Their construction is different producing a particular tong effect. Every scale becomes its own character, not like the modern where they sound like transposed C major,” said Kurt Theiner, one of the performers. The instruments were unique-strings, for example, had a different inner structure which softened the tone. The technical mastery of these instruments must involve a great deal of intricacy as they lacked devices such as keys and valves. There were twelve people in the ensemble ineluding one woman. Yet the group didn’t seem to be that large because the sound was so tight and soft. It is really difficult to give an estimation of their worth. I suppose the standing ovation and the calls back for encores pays sufficient tribute to

Instrumentation-poor

Rush’s latest album leans heavilv on songs by Joni Mitchell. With the combination of her writing ability, and his singing and guitar playing skill, the album can’t fail to be a hit. Starting with the slow, moody Tin Angel, the ability of Rush to coax all there is out of a song becomes evident. The drums and electric guitar in Something in the way she moves, enhances it’s effect. Saxophone is also employed in the occasional track, for a heavier sounding back-up. Rush seems to have honed his art to a fine edge, which is paving off in the quality of the material he is both writing and singing. The title song, and /Vo regrets are two more fine examples.

The frames were constantly out-of-focus and breaks often occurred between reels. The worst break occurred during one of Liz Taylor’s nude scenes in Cleopatra.

Despite the problems, I would personally like to congratulate those strong-willed, heroic, yet tragic figures who ran the projectors: “Bully, chaps.” Those who came to the showing certainly were able to see a wide range of films.

come hilarious. Both movies were delightful to watch. Both theatres were constantly packed with people and at one time so packed that many were forced to sit in the aisles. Probably the fullest house was found during the showing of Mankiewicz’s Cleopatra. Never have so many wasted so much for so little. After seeing the movie for a second time I can only say it was the biggest bomb in movie history. Over thirty-six million dollars were squandered on weak performances and an even weaker script. A two million dollar battle sequence. with countless specially built ships and props was performed before the cameras, but all that was really in camera view were a few of the burning ships in the background and chubby Liz playing with her strategic miniature boats, casually blocking the view. What a hell of a waste. Millions of dollars were wasted on shots that only lasted seconds : the burial of Caesar’s soldiers; the battle and burning of Alexandria; the fleets of ships; the army of Octavius. The movie did not hold a candle to Cecil B. DeMille’s 1934 version. However, it was not the Science society’s ,fault that the movie was a terrible bore. They simple showed it. It was quickly made up for by the satiric ford Love a Duck, the wild antics of Laurel and Hardy, and the bare bosom of Brigit Bardot.

Turini

The second program in the Concert Hall Series at the University of Waterloo will feature the highly gifted Canadian pianist, Ronald Turini. The concert will be presented in the Theatre of the Arts on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 8:30 p.m. Since his U.S. debut in Carnegie Hall, Ronald Turini has won an uncommon number of artistic successes. The musical elite turned out to be among the first to hear him. The salvos of applause which Turini acknowledged at the concert’s conclusion clearly indicated that the young pianist had conquered his audience. The New York critics next day were just as enthusiastiq as the audience had been. “He was resplendent,” wrote Harold Schonberg for the New York Times readers, “For in addition to technical expertness, there was a quality of aristocracy to the performance.” Among other praises, Harriet Johnson reported in the N.Y. Post “As an artist he triumphed.” When Turini offered his second New York concert on the celebrated Metropolitan Museum of Art series, critics reaffirmed their initial impressions. The New York Times reported his recital of Jan. 25, 1964 as “an evening of extraordinar! pianistic expertise. The large audience which included some other important pianists of his generation, dispensed bravos generously.” The N.T. Herald-Tribune in similar vein, concluded : “Anything Mr. Turini wants to do with a piano, he can,-and we hope to be there to hear it.” He is a fantastically popular pianist with Russian audiences. In 1941 he first performed in the U.S.S.R. as soloist with the touring Montreal Symphony. He was immediately invited to perfoFm 12 recitals in 1963. And still the Russians clamoured for more. Despite his constantly busy schedule the artist was able to return to Russia for his third tour in

The Gaels romped over the Manitoba Bisons 29-6 in Winnipeg Saturday while the Hawks defeated the St. Mary’s Huskies 37-7 in Halifax.’ , Queen’s will be the heavy favorite in tonight’s final in-Toronto at varsity Stadium. They are the champions of the Senior Intercollegiate Football League-generally recognized as the toughest in the country. The Gaels went ahead at 4:30 of the first quarter at Winnipeg when Keith Eaman caught a sixyard pass for the touchdown. Eaman had set up the scoring play with a 45yard punt return to the Bison 14-yard line. With Queen’s leading 9-O in the second quarter, Manitoba’s Dennis Hrycaiko returned a punt 105 yards to close the gap. - After Hrycaiko’s touchdown, however, the game belonged to Queen’s. Heino Lilles picked up two touchdowns in the final quarter, after Tom Chown had scored late in the second quarter on r a

pass from quarterback Don Bayne. In Halifax, meanwhile, the Waterloo Lutheran squad had little trouble in moving past the Huskies. /The Hawks opened ‘up -a 12-O lead after touchdowns from Bob McGregor and Tom McCall in the first quarter. St. Mary’s fought back with a 69-yard pass and run to Reynold Shepherd but fell further behind in the second quarter as Lutheran struck for two more touchdowns. The Golden Hawks put the game away with two further majors in the final stanza. Tonight’s game will mark Lutheran’s second appearance in the college bowl game. They first appeared in the inaugural game three years ago when they were invited by the sponsors to meet the St. Francis Xavier X-Men. They were roundly- b.eaten in that one. After another invitation format in 1966, the sponsors moved to a playdown system among the various collegiate leagues to determine the finalists last fall. The SIFL opted out and McMaster Marauders lost to Alberta- Golden Bears .in the finals of a threeteam playdown. This is the first time, a truly national champion is being determined.

After three rounds the field has been halved in the chase for men’s varsity curling laurels. . Six teams remain in the doubleknockout tournament to determine a finalist in January’s best-ofthree duel to send a rink on to the Ontario-Quebec Athletic Association ‘spiel in Guelph. Of the six only one, PeteHindle, _ has yet to be defeated.. The others . all have one loss and face elimina: tion in tomorrow’s fourth round. Bill Icton has the next shot at Hindle and his untainted- record. If the chemistry grad’s foursome keeps rolling along, Icton and his boys, will be excused from further participation. In other games, where the losers will definitely head for the exits, Wayne Steski takes on Steve Wilton and Bill Stephenson matches shots with John Scott. An Icton win will reduce the field to four rinks, all with one . loss.

A Hindle victory will leave three teams in the- running, two’ of which will be missing one leg.- Hindle ushered Scott and >his crew into the loser’s column with a come-from-behind 6-5 victory last week. Scott looked to be in fine shape coming home two up, even though Hindle had last rock. But his boys faltered’ and gave up’ a big three to lose Steski had earlier given Icton his first loss while Wilton was eliminating Al Sawatzky and Stephenson was defeating Larry Manley. Playdowns to determine the women’s varisty-champ also start tomorrow. At the moment there are only two rinks in the running. Further entries of. complete rinks may be made-until 11 tonight by phoning Alexis Christopher . at 576-8891. All curling goes tomorrow morning at Granite starting - at 7:45.

Robin Fennell, arts 1, hopes to get some liaison going between council and the student bodysomething he feels has been absent with the present council. Running as an independent, he supports no presidential candidate. On representivity he -says, “It’s up to each council member to know

for s)udent at least broadly what the electorate’s views are on any issue.” He sees the ideal university with a one-tier government equally representative of students, faculty and administration, including in the meaning of administration representation of public interests in the university. He is satisfied with slow change, expecting to work up from -the few representatives students have now. Fennel1 approves of outsidethe-university concern on the student government part of depending on the views of the electorate aid the issue itself. For example he approves of concern over Vietnam and nonuniversity areas of education. He sees himself becoming chairman of a communications committee if on council. He has reserved decision on CUS, but would vote to pull out if CUS radically conflicted with the views on campus. Fennel1 wants to: -remove confrontation, -use course evalualiaison between tions, -develop faculty and students, -bring out a council newsletter, -move council meetings around to residences.

Paul Johnson Paul Johnson, arts 2, is seeking re-election as Renison rep. He won a by-election in September and resigned after the general meeting. He is running as an independent and supports Iler. Johnson endorses council’s past policies and seeks “advancements to improve the university and society-socially, politically and economically. ” The wishes of the majority of his constituents will dictate, his decision, even if they are opposed to his personal view. Johnson feels faculty should have a majority on bodies deciding curriculum. ‘The university should be governed by a group equally students, faculty representing and the outside community. He wants to effect change by consultation and pressure on the present system. The majority university govkrnment report is bad, in his opinion. CUS involvement in external issues is the main reason Johnson endorses the union. He feels drastic moves such as the campus center takeover should be supported by larger general meetings than that action was.

Gartner

John Gartner, planning 3, is running because he feels this is the “best way to actively project my disapproval for the way things are being run.” A supporter of John Bergsma, he feels the main role of council is the “internal management of student problems.” He feels council can influence student opinion, but should wait for a student mandate on major actions. Gartner feels that those involved with the Federation of Students “shouldn’t use their influential positions as a sounding board for their own personal ambitions. ” Statements on matters such

Dube

Paul Dube, arts 1, is running to stimulate an awareness among his constituents by forcing an election, rather than allowing the seat to go by acclamation. Although running independently, Dube supports Iler for president. He feels faculty and students should govern the university. “The university government report was a whitewash”, he said. Dube thinks student governments should involve themselves in “moral issues” outside the campus, provided they take positive stands. He would like to see us influencing other countries to adopt the type of educatiqnal system we are striving for. Dube intends to discuss issues with his constituents if elected, so he can vote according to their views. He also wants to provide them with written information publicizing council’s actions. He . would resign if a serious conflict developed between his views and those of his constituents. Communication between students and council should be improved, Paul feels. He thinks Waterloo should stay in CUS and attempt to alter some of the union’s policies. He promises active representation for all groups within Renison.

sity; he supports the university government study and sees no major changes in the governing structure necessary at present. External issues are a dangerous field for student governments to enter, because involvement in them leads to animosities, in the opinion of Kilimnik. Although he feels students should be involved in these matters, he does,not want to see the federation’s name attached.< He is working on an evaluation of the present council’s programs and a withdrawal from CUS, although he will abide by the results of the referendum. Kilimnik wants to change council actions to alter the existing off-campus image of Waterloo students. He sees this image as unfavourable at present.

as externaLaffairs should be made on an individual basis, not on behalf of the whole student boqy. Although he hasn’t read the uni- versity government report. thoroughly, Gartner feels there should Sandy MacGregor be student and faculty reps on the administration-but not to the exSandy (Alexander ) MacGregor tent of giving students a veto.

Bob Kilimnik, arts 3, is disturbed by the actions of the present council, and the consequent “dirty atmosphere”’ he feels exists. He says student leadership must reflect the ideas of the students, and charges that Iler does not do this. Kilimnik says he was “challenged by some of the radicals to do in accordance with something” his opinions. He is running on the Bergsma slate. Kilimnik feels student governments have no right to speak out on matters of conscience such as Vietnam and national politics, without a consensus of opinion from their constituents.. Kilomnik would not say in advance whether he would vote against their wishes on a given issue. He says he would attempt to informally poll his constituents on council matters He would not like to see students and faculty governing the univer-

Sandy MacGregor wants more people involved in selecting. student reps on committees, and voluntary federation membership. If elected, MacGregor intends to vote according to his own conscience, even if this would mean voting against the wishes of the majority of his constituents. He advises those not clear about his views not to vote for him. He would like to see the university eventually governed by students and faculty with some alumni. He termed the university government report unfortunate and reactionary. He hoped it wouldn’t deter council from pressing more progressive ideas. Student concern with external issues is important, but he savs students do not .now have the necessary bower to effect change. Although he says it would be a mistake to leave CUS now, MacGregor thinks future support of the union should depend on democratization of that organization. He would like to see congress delegates and the national president elected directly on the various campuses.


Cubberley I

Cooperation, not confrontation, is Underwood’s methods of dealing with the administration. Student government should not take positions on issues outside of the university, he-said.

A member of the last concil, David Cubberley, poli-sci 3, is seeking reelection as a member of the radical student movement. He sees council -as a forumsomewhere to focus the issues. He would attempt to keep council / actions in line with the thinking of the electorate through- general meetings Cubberley feels the ultimate democratization of. the university -government by faculty and students-can only be achieved by developing a consciousness in the electorate. When students know and understand their goals, they will be effectively achieved. He sees business and industry are closely tied to the university so it can’t be considered in a vacuum-students must be concer’ned with the%ociety. “If I’m returned to council, I will seek a closer examination of the methods and products of education. And we must begin to combat the socialization process that has made the general student body so apathetic.” He feels membership in the Canadian Union of Students is essential for communication of

,Richard Lloyd, eng lA, says taking an active interest in issues inspired him to run ‘for council. He is independent of _ slatqs and presidential candidates, feeling both major ‘contenders could.do a good job. L “.I think I can view both sides. Not enough people are listening to what others are saying. People tend to label others as radical \ reactionary and can’t see the otherside.” He commented council must provide leadership since the electorate aren’t thinking about issues all the time. Therefore council must bring things into the open and then evaluate public opinion. . He thought an administration was necessary : “I can’t see a horizontallystructured university, but the administration needs a better feedback machine to know how their actions tire affecting us.” “We should move through the proper channels. I don’t equate students with a labor union being trod upon. We should deal man to man with the administration.” He had no particular goals to institute if elected, although he stated he wouldn’t try to change actions of the previous council: “I think we should work within CUS. If we can’t change it into a more representative tool after trying hard, then we should pull \ out.” He concluded : ;‘It’s really hard to take a firm stand with no previous experience, but I will trv to look at both sides.”

If the students don’t know what’s going on, it’s council’s fault,” he continued. Although the university should be democratic in theory, he feels practicai problems such as people being used to a structure, necessitate an administration. “The administrtition should be ‘like a civil service but faculty, students, and Joe Citiz&n should be represented. ” He- believes university students should be concerned with outside ideas and events, while still focusing mainly on university affairs. “We can learn something from -even extrem& ideas when they are viewed in con>iext.

If I succeed, I’ve done a lot for the university, the students and the engi neering society.”

He was chairman of the international affairs commission for the past council. “I’m running to illuminate issues which university students should be involved in. These are issues affecting their lives and they should be aware of them. “I feel council should lead with a mandate but shouldn’t disregar+public opinion.. I’m in favor of general meetings and referendums as reflections of this opinion,” he said. He feels council’s primary role is to lead, to discuss the issues while acting in a responsible manner to the constituents. Further; he favors democratization of the university. to the ultimate extent, with equal representation for faculty, ‘students, and staff on all governing bodies. He hopes tto promote lectures and seminars to bring about an awareness .of social problems ; he feels students should be aware of national and international events since they affect the world in which we live. “I would try to coordinate my programs with the Engineering Society in patrticular, and other societies.

Concerning democracy within the university, Gordon says that students can have a voice, but faculty must guide ‘them. Students are too inexperienced, and should not be able to decide which professors are good and which are not. Gordon contends “students are there (in university ) for the content, not for lectures”, and that, an interested student will get the content of the course regardless of who his lecturer is.

He believes university government should be democratized, after all sides of the story have been heard. If the administration won’t give in to a majority wish for change, he thinks a large enough group of faculty and students could possibly sway them. On the university government study, Lubek favored the minority report. He would like to see council in a position to question and discuss courses and society. Lubek also favors staying in CUS, as he thinks a form of national student union is good.

Doug Gaukroger

DOUG GAUKROGER, grad English, a member of the radical student movement, supports Brian Iler and will continue his policies if elected. No matter how radically the policies of CUS and the bouncil differ, the federation should not pull out of the union, said Doug Gaukroger. “It is politically naive and immature to think you can drop out every time you are disagreed with.” Gaukroger believes student coun cil should act on the mandate it receives in the election. It should be able to carry out the ’ less important matters of council

without having to continousl! refer to the student body. “Important policies, however should be handled with genera meetings,” he says. He feels the university govern ment “too conservative and fiv years behind the times. The report took twenty-five months tc make and not one of the studen requests was met or even take] into account.” Gaukroger stands for complet democratization of the univer sity. The board of governors woull be abolished, and a new senio government body would have ha1 students and half faculty eacl with the power to veto the other The administration, then, woulc only administer policies

He had no comment on the university government report as he had not yet read it completely.

Syd Nestel Syd Nestel, math 1, feels society and university are stifling creativity, and attempting to mould people and this is wrong. Removal of the board of governors is a move he favors. Open debate and open democracy are two preludes to their removal. People must make their own decisions both in the university and in society. Council should point the way for the implementation of this method. It should both represent the student and look out for his interests. Nestel is running on the radical student movement slate and is supporting Iler as presidential candidate. On the question of mandate and representation, he feels the council should not be a mouthpiece; however any action the general student body opposed would be ineffectual. Nestel thinks the students should be educated out of any existing so council will always apathy, be in touch with their wishes. He will, however, still vote on his own conscience, if elected.

Bob Brown board of governors was never the proper set-up for the function they are to fulfil. To attain this change he would like to see council start at the bottom and work up. An example of this would be strengthening of faculty groups to improve communication. He agrees with the minority report on university government and would like to work along with it for a new method-only through a slower process. His personal projects include looking into the math course system and decentralization ,of student government. CUS is a field where Brown would like to work from within to create change, as he feels it is the students’ fault the union is where it is today.

John Kovcd

Syd Nestel He feels the representatives should represent all students ahead of their faculty opinion, if the two views conflict. This would also include interference by vested interests or pressure groups. Nestel says the university government report did not look closely enough into the purpose of the university, but more into the running of it. As such it fell down, and was not as meaningful as the minority report. He is also in favor of remaining in CUS.

John Koval, math 4, has spent one year on student council executive-as student-activities chairman, then creative-arts. He plans to increase communications if elected, as well as attempt to represent society in council for consideration. He also plans to speak up this time around if he doesn’t agree with what is going on. He is running as an independent and .has endorsed neither of the two main presidential candidates. Koval feels the elected candidate’s mandate is sufficient for most council issues, but for im-

Bob Brown Bob Brown, math 2, styles himself as the council’s conscience if elected. As he opposed council in previous months, he thinks it would be hypocritical to not run in these elections. He envisions control of council by no single group, as he feels the new left did in the last council. He supports Bergsma for president and is running on his ticket. His elected mandate will come first, and personal conscience second, if he is elected. This however would be a very close distinction. Brown favors general meetings where necessary, as they are of general interst. He would place faculty obligations ahead of general student opinion in order to fulfil his mandate. A change in the power structure of the university is seen imminent by him, as he feels the Friday,

John Koval portant matters such as the campus center takeover, some form of student opinion must be polled. It is council’s duty to educate the students to be non-apathetic. Koval thinks that since t& people of Ontario pay taxes to support the university, they should decide who governs it. He also says the university government report was not sufficient as it didn’t cover the purpose of university. Koval feels the Canadian Union of Students has potential, if changed, and this change should come from within.

I have additional information about the cards that were sent to me, supplementing my letter of April 3.

While three doves lost their seats, several prominent Senate doves were re-elected, including William Fulbright of Arkansas (chairman of the senate foreign relations committee), Frank Church of Idaho, George McGovern of South Dakota, and Abraham Ribicoff of Connecticut. However, because of the influence of non-Vietnam campaign issues on voting perferences, it is difficult to contend that voters, affirmed Vietnam as the crucial campaign issue .by expressing preferences for the dovish positions taken by these senators. It is significant to. note, however, that Fulbright et al won their races with much larger majorities than anticipated and ran far ahad of Humphrey in their respective states.

An American election campaign and its aftermath usually offers us some predictability about the general policy directions of the newly-elected administration and the prospects for their legislative and executive implementation. 1988 is no exception. The Nixon Presidency should represent a considerable shift from the Kennedy-Johnson period: Only on the most critical and perplexing problem of the time, the resolution of the war in Vietnam, does the President-elect offer us no clear view of the policy direction of his administration. Indeed, Mr. Nixon probably hopes for yet the final miracle in his dogged political comeback-that Lyndon Johnson can establish firmly the diplomatic basis for an “honorable” . extracation of the United States from Vietnam. As for now, he says, the nation has only one president at a time and that Mr. Johnson speaks for his administration until inauguration day. And so, while offering Mr, Johnson aid and solace, he gladly leaves’ the problem for the time being in the hands of a lame duck leader, whose tired Administration becomes lamer as the days go by. Mr. Nixon will not “derogate” American diplomatic efforts, he will do nothing to “undermine” the Paris peace talks. His policy after January 20, he indicates, will favor de-escalation through hard and firm negotiation (ultimately with the Soviet Union) and extension of the olive branch of “peace through strength.” It may indeed be one of the most fortunate historical accidents in Richard Nixon’s long career that his political interests coincide with the historical interests of Lyndon Johnson.

No change

The trend

of “open”

races

Perhaps the most accurate guage of selected public sentiment on the war’ issue, are the “open” races, that is, those races in which an incumbent was not a candidate or those that were waged predominantly and clearly on the Vietnam issue. By consensus of the press and television media, Iowa, Missouri, and Ohio represent such contests. All of these races were extremely close. In the first two, “doves” won; in Ohio, the “hawk” won. (It is admitted that these terms are imprecise and too suggestive, but they are used here merely as shortcuts to describe two rather distinct alternative positions perhaps best clarified by the conflict between Eugene McCarthy and Hubert Humphrey. ) What is interesting about these races is that in each case, they indicate a rather sizeable shift in popular sentiment in favor of the dove position. In Iowa, retiring Republican Senator Bourke Hickenlooper was an acknowledged hawk. The state was carried by Nixon; yet Democrat Harold Hughes, the man who nominated Senator McCarthy at the Chicago convention, won the Senate seat. In Missouri, the Senate seat had been held by a Democrat, who in the state primary was beaten by dove Thomas Eagleton, largely on the Vietnam issue. Eagleton went on to beat his Republican challenger. In Ohio, Democratic Senator Frank Lausche, another acknowledged hawk, was beaten in the primary by a clearly recognized dove, who was in turn beaten by his Republican opponent as Nixon carried the state. What is important ,to note here is that, even though the dove was beaten in this case, both the primary victory and the extremely close margin of defeat in the general election was clear evidence that Ohio voters had swung a considerable way toward a more liberal dovish position.

in Vietnam?

A superficial analysis of the election results would seem to show no changeor trend. in the nation’s sentiments on Vietnam. Three of the country’s leading . Senate doves are not returning in January. Senator Morse of Oregon was beaten by Republican Robert Packwood in the closest ‘election in that state’s history. it cannot be contended that /’ However, Morse’s defeat was a defeat for the dove position on the war. Packwood neutralized the Vietnam issue by repeatedly making it clear that he supported Republican senator Mark Hatfield’s dove position on the war. The issues that he took to the Oregon electorate were Morse’s age, abrasive personality, and his increasing failure to represent the state’s parochial interests. In Alaska, 80-year old Senator Ernest Gruening lost his party’s state primary nomination again because of age and .state interests. Finally, Senator Joseph Clark of Pennsylvania lost his bid for re-election, because of both the personal opposition of key organizational elements within the party and Clark’s support of gun control legislation (over $900,000 registered hunters reside in the state).

Orthodox

libq=al-conservatism

Whatever the popular attitude on Vietnam and whatever Mr. Nixon’s Vietnam policy may turn out to be, the President elect’s basic foreign policy position iaquite clear. Richard Nixon is an exponent of the orthodox brand of post-war bipartisan foreign policy-anti-Communism, antirevolution, and “international cooperation.” Pursuit of the policy will mean greater defense expenditures, especially on sophisticated missile systems, perhaps an increase in the space program, a strengthening of NATO and SEATO (already in the works), and a vigorous attempt to protect the dollar and the U.S balance of payments position. No change in U.S. foreign policy is . indicated, therefore, except in the one major area of foreign trade. Mr. Nixon

But once again, caution must be exercised in placing too much confidence in these rather spotty impressionistic case studies. One can say, however, that it is a highly plausible hypothesis that voters exercised substantial differentiation between candidates, as indicated by the huge amount of ticket-splitting apparent in voting returns, and that in the main, the trend in popular opinion, heavily Iavors the dovish position. Only extensive research can test the validity of this hypothesis in any significant way.

appears to be prepared to roll back gradually the chief innovation of the Democratic period-the Kennedy round of tariff reductions within a freer international trade system. Rumblings have been heard already from his “Key Biscayne White House” and on Capitol Hill that the new president and lthe “new Congressional majority” may be very receptive to the appeals of the u fortunate businessmen and producers ‘i who are threatened by international competition’. Nixon appears to be quite willing to wield the American economic stick as well as to 4’extend the financial carrot abroad in order to “make the world safe for democracy ( read : capita/km 1.” Ottawa will certainly be among. the world capitals to keep its ear to the shifting ground. Domestically, the Nixon slogan probably will be an echo: “make the country safe for democracy \(again read: C8#2italism ). ’ ’ This will be a f?t?pub/ic8n administration, and while the campaign rhetoric this fall was remarkably similar regardless of the candidate, the basic policy approach should be distinctive.

Corporate

responsibility

Dedicated to the, reassertion and expansion of capitalist enterprise, Mr. Nixon’s administration will be hallmarked by the attempt to find solutions to the nation’s critical domestic problems by prodding and pulling private business

, and the corporate system into action. The “massive” federal programs of the past will all but cease; in their place will be the new administration’s basic policy ’ of tax and other financial incentives (subsidies? ) for private industry. ‘I Budget cuts, reduction in government expenditures (excepting defense spending 1, and “fiscal’responsibility” will be the order of the day. As the private sector receives the emphasis in this new Republican erathe federal government should be in for an . overhauling. Mr. Nixon appears to be headed down the path of governmental decentralization and perhaps reorganization: he is known to favor the sharing of federal revenue with the states as well as block grants to state governments with a .minimum of strings attachedI. These are boon policies to both “statesrighters” in and out of Congress and to the 30 Republican governors, including those in all of the most populous urban states; New Y.ork, California, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio. Responsibility for the cities, for unemplovment, for economic growth, for res duction in racial tensions all will be shifted in the next four years from Washington to the state houses, the corporate board rooms and banking houses as well. Indeed, one could say that Mr. Nixon will present both the federal system and the capitalist system with their greatest challenge and test in history. In effect, the. new President will be asking the corporate giants, in far more polite terms, to put their money where their mouths are.

In the name

of Apple

Pie

During his campaign, Nixon -made his strongest appeal to the “forgotten Americans,” those decent, home-loving, hardworking, God-fearing people who comprise the foundation of the social fabric. was appealing to the , Nixon, therefore, -subjective middle class ; those who, whatever their particular station or style of -.life -$t present, ,.accept middle class values and strive for objective middle ’ class status and wealth. These are people who believe in the system and believe in their future role within it. Enough responded to elect Richard Nixon, but he knows he must increase those ranks over the next several vears. And ‘so, what he will ask private enter.prise to do, whatever government assistance is required, is to buy off the subjective middle class, black or white. With Martin Luther King gone, an older and “wiser” group of Negro spokesmen will reassert themselves. again with

the encouragement of the new president. Whitney Young of the Urban League, Roy Wilkins of the NAACP and James Farmer, past national chairman of CORE and an unsuccessful Re’publican candidate for Congress from Brooklyn should find the White House door more inviting than in the recent past. Indeed, Farmer may become Nixon’s special advisor on race and the black economy. Nixon seems to have a conception of the Presidency as an office of moral and psychological leadership.

The

Normal

Society

He will propound the ideals of racial justice, private property for blacks as well as whites, of national purpose and unity, and by raising the faith and optimism .of’the citizenry, he will hope to slow down the rush of events and return to the Republican conception of “normalcy.“Perhaps as part of that attempt but also to protect the very system he leans so heavily upon,he will not hesitate to enforce a militant yet dignified patrician version of “lawn order.” So, on the domestic front, Nixon extends both the policemen’s night stick and the carrots of better times, a greater stake in the society; and to the youth, an end to the draft and the outlet of voluntary social service. - To effect his plans, Mr. Nixon must fashion a superior executive establishment and cultivate a productive legislative relationship with Congress. Very great talent is available to the President-elect in fashioning his Cabinet and special advisory group.. He would do well indeed to seize upon the varying assets of some of the following: former Rhode Island governor Chafee, representative of ethnic industrialized New England; governor George Romney of Michigan, who may be quite willing to vacate his post in the wake of the recent Democratic electoral victory in his state, an possibly James Farmer of Massachusetts (politically, Nixon would do well with a Negro in the Cabinet). Certainly, if this Administration is representative of those in the past, several prominent membrs of America’s upper class and foundation elite, e.g, the Rockefeller, Dillon, Ford, Morgan, DuPont ‘,‘families,” will serve. s And if Nixon is looking for a Democrat or two to provide balance and substance to his pledge of an “open Administration;” he may find them among Vietnam. negotiator Averell Harriman, former Florida Governor LeROY Collins or just beaten Senator Monroney of Oklahoma. One thing about the cabinet would appear to be clear, however. In the

Meeting in a secret session last Thursday afternoon, administration president Gerry Hagey. chancellor Ira Needles and the board of governors decided to reject one of the recommendations of the report of the study committee on university government. Hut they didn’t reject it because it was too conservative or behind the times. They rejected it because in a significant way it eroded the power of the senior administration and the board. The recommendation concerned the procedure for replacing the administration president-a job Hagey has decided he would like to vacate. One of the tasks of the university government (unigov ) study committee was to recommend a procedure to be used for the selection of Waterloo’s first administration president since the founding. Predominent in the study committee were senior faculty and deans who were determined to have an academic as their next president. (Hagey was not an academic: he came to university government directly from business. ) According to the University of Waterloo act, the board og governors holds a very broad, ultimate power “to appoint and remove the president” (and every employee and agent of the university. )-section 22, la. The unigov committee proposed, however, there be a search committee chaired by the board of governors chairman, and including another board member, one faculty member elected by each faculty

council and a student appointed by the student council. The search committee would select the one most suitable candidate and forward its recommendation to the senate. Senate would either accept or reject the candidate. In case of rejection, the search committee would deliberate and make another proposal. When senate had approved a recommendation, it would send it. to the board of governors who would have a similar option to accept or reject. If rejected, a new candidate would have to come up through the search committee and the senate. This was a conservative enough proposal, for although the search committee would be controlled by the academic communities four faculty and one student out of a total of seven), the recommendation would still have to clear the senate-dominated by senior faculty and academic administration-as well as the business-industrial power of the board of governors. The proposal for replacing the president was one of the concepts most easily accepted by the members of the unigov committee; and it has met little criticism in the university communities compared to other areas of the report. Neither the senate nor the board has formally considered the unigov report, both having just recently struck committees to discuss it. The board, in fact, struck their committee at the same session where they rejected the presidential replacement procedure. Why did the board reject the proce-

dure? Hagey would only give excuses publicly-he said they wanted more students on the search committee and wanted the senate to appoint some of the faculty representatives. He also claimed the unigov procedure would require a legal change in the university’s act. Hagey has even tried to use the recent criticisms of the unigov report to shelve it. A close look at what the board did to the selection procedure is necessary. The search committee is doubled in size to fourteen. One student out of seven becomes two out of fourteen. Four faculty from the faculty councils becomes two from senate, two from the Faculty Association and one appointed by the academic vicepresident-for a total of five out of fourteen. The other seven places are filled by the chancellor, two staff members selected by the operations vicepresident, two board of governors members, an alumnus selected by the alumni association executive and a member appointed by the committee from outside the university. This search committee must recommend two to four candidates to senate who will vote by secret ballot on the slate. The results of this vote will go to the board of governors who will vote by secret ballot on the slate as well. The board does not have to agree with senate and has the option of asking the search committee for a new slate. According. to an administration press release, the vote in senate is “to provide the board with reasonably accurate information as to the general university acceptance of the candidates. ”

The whole system now assures the senior administration and the board their own choice will be made with little opposition in the ‘proper channels’ of appointment. Not only do they have complete freedom to choose from proposed candidates, but the search committee is effectively controlled by the board and senior administrators (who have the same interests as the board. ) Besides the chancellor, two board memhers and two staff votes, there are less obvious controlled appointments. The alumni executive is senior-administration controlledone more on the search cornmittee. The academic vice-president’s one appointment of a faculty member is another. This already gives the administration’s side half the committee, and the administrators on the senate are virtually assured to return at least one sympathetic appointment from senate’s two. The only assured progressive members of the search committee will be the two appointments of the Faculty Association and the two students appointed by the Federation of Students. Four out of fourteen is lot different than the probable five of seven the conservative unigov report would have given to the real academic communities. On top of all this, the powers-that-be have decreed, “Appointment of each person to the nominating committee shall be conditional on his agreement to serve under an oath of silence regarding the deliberations of the committee.”


But not their methods There comes a time .. . If you like the activists but not their methods then you should take a second look at what you think those methods are. The truth is the activists probably aren’t too happy about some of their methods either-but what do you do when everything else has been tried?

date, only the engineering council has done anything, and that only in a token way. With

Take a look at a few examples. With

administration

Over two years ago an attempt was made to form a large committee composed of all the senior administrators, faculty and student representatives on campus. It was labelled a president’s 4 advisory committee. e After four meetings and no accomplishments the president stopped calling meetings. Following an impassioned plea for better understanding and mutual respect by the student council president at a dinner a year ago, president Hagey established , a study committee on communication. The committee still exists on paper but proved to be useless in practice and has stopped meeting. After the students started raising many questions about university government two years ago the study committee on university government was formed. It finallv. reported last month and even its recommendations for token changes are now being ignored by the administration. )c

Add to the list many hours a week spent by federation executive personnel in private meetings or attending ad-hoc committee meetings and you get a vague picture of how hard they’ve been trying. The president of the federation works an 80 hour week. With

the faculty

The quality of education committees made the biggest approach to the faculty last year. The committees were decentralized down to departments with faculty coordinatini committees. The whole thing flopped. Ads were placed in the Chevron, questionaires were distributed around campus three times, every faculty member was sent a questionaire in the campus mail. Result-two replies from faculty members, and not very many more from students. Most contact with faculty should be at the department level and realizing this, past councils have tried to encourage students to agitate for course unions. Successhere has been minimal because of a lack of interested students. Councils have also asked that faculty council meetings by opened and that student representatives be seated on them. To

the Students

anybody could Everything think of has been tried in order to increase communication with the students and try to provide better representation of their wishes when action was undertaken. General meetings have been the big innovation this year. Welladvertised, the meetings have attracted highly varying numbers of students though unfortunately posters in some areas of the campus were often removed shortly after they went up. Iler has said he would consider himself bound by the decision of such meetings. A council newsletter was tried last year with some success.This year literature tables are being set up on campus in an attempt to provide background papers on council’s activities. Hundreds of copies of the CUS resolutions book have been distributed on request, for example. Last year’s council tried to hold forums with anyone who wanted to ask members questions. Less than a handful of people showed up all year. That council also started meeting in accessible places (it used to be in the hidden and small board and senate room) and the rules have been relaxed to allow non-members to speak fairly often. Meetings this year have been in the highly-accessible campus center great hall. Most students don’t realize the history of attempts at all levels and the corresponding history of failures that the council has to take note of. There is little use repeating past mistakes.

How many times Yet every newcomer to the process asks those that have gone through the process to do just that. “Show me” they cry, “because I don’t believe you’ve really tried”. Where is it all to end? The problems the activists are raising are not ones that we can afford to put off. The question isn’t power-it’s democratization. The cry isn’t for authority over other peoples lives, it’s for authority over our own. The threat isn’t a hidden menace in the year 1992,it’s the unstudied dynamics of our present society. The activists’ methods are still being badly misrepresented. It wasn’t Brian Iler who said he wouldn’t perform an action he disagreed with even if the majority of students wanted it-it was John Bergsma. Iler has committed himself to following the will of the people because that is what the activists believe in. Take a’ good look at what has really happened, what the activists are really saying. There comes a time when the truth must be faced.

Let’s see now, “‘Al Adlington . . .one campaign manager. ”

Feelings not in print “I can’t vote for Iler because I’m not a socialist.” “I’m in favor of democratizing the university, but I don’t like the sound of the rest of the radical platform. ” These are some typical comments heard around campus and they point out some of the faults in the radical student movemnt which we too must criticize. Much of what the radical movement has published has been heavy in expressions that connote dubious meanings, and their criticisms of capitalism do not carry the clarification that is necessary to prevent wrong conclusions. But when you talk to the radicals, it becomes much clearer what they’re after-sincerity and honesty are something they all seem to possess but don’t express well on paper. They don’t want confrontation for confrontation’s sake-they’ve just become defensive at unwarranted criticism. Many of the radicals are old-timers who have cooperated with and tried to persuade the administration for years.. They object to newcomers or conservatives who say they haven’t tried and everything can be solved by sitting peacefully at a bargaining table. The radicals fail to emphasize

the humanistic reforms they want to see in society. T-hey first want to put capitalism behind the system rather than in the lead-and see how that works before evolving an entirely different solution. They are not attacking the administration as bad people-they are opposed to the system that forces people to automatically play a bad role. These things become clear when you talk to members of the radical student movement-and they also become clear when they debate their opponents. But mass communication is the problem-and they need a lot of improvement. When Brian Iler says ‘confrontation’, a lot of people are scared of something they don’t understand-and they can’t ask a piece of paper what he means. Rather, the radicals should be more careful to communicate exactly what they mean: for a confrontation tactic can mean anything from a petition to setting up a competing bookstore (as the engineers did in 1966)to the token removal of the campus center administrator’s desk into the great hall. In all those cases the purpose is not to force not a capitulation by the other side, but rather to hasten the negotiations that will take place between people as equals.
