Engsoc, Dave, talking it over Dave- Robertson, summer coordinator of the board of education, came under fire from the officials of several societies at ‘Tuesday night’s federation council meeting for charges ranging from not communicating with them “trying to force his through lifestyle on them” to refusing them money from the federation to which they are entitled. The subject was first broached during the question period at the beginning of the meeting, by integrated studi,es. rep Shane Roberts, who asked Robertson what money requests he has had to date and which, if any, have been refused or stalled. Robertson stated he ‘has had several requests from engsoc, two of which were not submitted according to established procedure, and another of which he had to refer to the regular board chairman. f “What about math society?” asked Roberts. “I have had no requests from math society. Andy (federation president Teledgi) has told me that they have asked for $1,000; Doug Dobney came to me, today, and asked me what’s happening. I told him I have no requests...nobody has come to see me from math society.” The matter was dropped then until a section of the agenda called “summer employees review”, which was a -euphemism for a engsoc . ..atta ck on prepared Robertson 'S performance of his board of education duties. Summer engineering rep Blair Schiebel rose and read what he called “simply a statement” which was a “grassroots input” from 35 percent of the students on campus-the engineering students. He said that communication between the engineering students and the board -of education has diminished recently to “an alarming level”,- and that the board has sent only two invitations to the engineering students to participate’ in the board’s activities. He cited several instances where Robertson has recently failed to cooperate and communicate about educational functions held by the engineers. “This type of’ attitude, in my opinion, is detrimental to the
operation of an effective .and credible structure and, in fact, inevitably leads to alienation and basic distrust between parties concerned. Further, this feeling by the mass of the engineering students is much too easily extrapolated to include the entire federation.” . He said the situation threatened a “rift” between the engineering students and the federation, a rift which he is sure “no one here wants”. Robertson was also accused of “discriminating” against the engineering students as far as handing out his board’s money, “meddling in the affairs” of engsoc, and of.trying to force his own lifestyle on the engineers. Robertson rose to answer the charges, stating that most of the accusations against him were falsely based, “and this is all bullshit”. From that point on, the various speakers and members became obsessed with the waste material of farm animals, shouting “bullshit” and “horseshit” across the room at each other. ’ “I have not denied your organization (engsoc) any money”, he told Schiebel. “I am operating strictly under my terms of reference. I will not give engineering society special privilege over any other society or group which has approached me.” As for trying to force his lifestyle on the engineers, he said: i “I have suggested personally that the engineers would do well to reform their image on this campus and I will stand by that. I have not told the engineering society that the board of education wants them to reform their image.” He said that in two instances he was sent bills by the engineering society after it had held an event, rather than the society coming to him beforehand as is usually done. He also called for the council members to censure the engineering reps for bringing the false chargesagainst him and for following _ established not procedure. y After discussion, nmch federation critic-at-large Doug Austrom moved that the hiring committee which originally chose the people to fill the summer jobs be re-formed to “investigate all summer employees” and report back. to council. St. Jerome’s rep Charles Ronzio, who had sat as chairman of that committee, said that he personally “wanted nothing more to do with it” and that the council should not foist the problem onto a committee. Austrom’s motion was easily defeated, and Schiebel moved that council accept three recommendations from engsoc, which were : l that Robertson and the societies increase communication; l that Robertson be asked to “account to” engsoc about the incidents to the engineers’ satisfaction; o that a report of that meeting be brought back to council. Robertson told council at that point that he was “not going to bow to this type of threat situation”, and said that he was accountable to council, not- to the societies. So Bayla Sweet, arts rep, moved that
University of Waterloo Waterloo, Ontario volume 14, number 6 friday, july 13,1973 :”
-“account to” engineers -be changed to “discuss with” the --.engineers,_ - and that was accepted. Robertson also objected to the languag$ of the statement, such as “meddling with the affairs of the society”, “imposing his personal philosophy” and “discriminating against engineers”. The engineering reps agreed to delete that section of the statement, and the statement was passed as a motion. Science rep Anne Valliant charged that “the engineers have brought this here to us, and after a few hours we have decided to let them talk it out with each other. We’ve just wasted a lot of time.” One of the engineering reps countered that the time had not been wasted. “A lot has come out of this discussion, council now knows about the problem.” In other business, council tabled action on a’ request from Radio Waterloo to seek a loan from the university in order to carry through a new building program.

But as mild as the. project is in reality, the fact that a groupsome of whose members are admittedly homosexual and who are obviously sympathetic towards homosexuality-is ‘enough for some members of the Opposition to see their chanceto smear OFY and the government. There is also some indication that OFY itself is watching the project very carefully since Operation Socrates has recently been asked to submit an interim report of activities, Since Operation Socrates, which is funded at $9,696 and employs six full-time people and one part-time person, is not one of the larger projects, its members find the attention ludricrous. “The inquistion we have been placed under has made me angry,” said Dennis, another -george kaufman project member. “We have to validate all over’ again why- we got our money,” Margaret added.

need for counselling on campus, what model of therapy should be used, what method of organization should be employed and a host of other questions of equal magnitude. The members’ limited background in the area and our method of operation by no means allowed us to adequately deal with these considerations. One of the questions that the committee did not deal with was why we were reviewing counselling services in the first place. The urriversity as in most of its dealings remained mute on this point. However, if we review the circumstances surrounding the situation, I believe we can provide some reliable answers. / ince 1965 when the operation was established with a good deal of univ.ersity support, to the time that the committee was struck, counselling services was given a ‘free hand’ within the limits of its budget. Why all of a sudden in 1973 do we question it? It appears that no matter how we deal with the question we arrive back at the University’s ‘modus operandi’-money and its allocation. In 1972-78 the University experienced for the first time in its ‘affluent’ history,budgetl freezes and cutbacks. A dictate from the government put a freeze on capital expenditures and furnishings. This is the same time that the students tuition goes I up one hundred dollars. This situation coupled with a potential decrease in student enrolment
arly in February 1973, the president of the university established a special study committee on counselling services. The purpose of ‘the committee was to review the conuselling operation and make recommendations to the President. The committee consisted of six members /’ and the chairman. They were John New, chairman, N. Ashton ( Kinesiology >, Robin Banks (Psychology), D Mcneil (grad student-m’-gement science), W. Pearson (science), David Robertson (artsundergrad). The committee was to report back with its findings at the end of March. This article represents an attempt to explain what went on at the committee level and what has ensued since the committee’s report. To begin with, the committee met once a week for a few hours for a period of about eight weeks. Not nearly sufficient time to deal with the many serious questions that arose as a result of the investigation. The committee had two primary modes of operation. One. was interviewing representatives of various concerned organizations, and the second was receiving briefs that were submitted to the’ committee. The time spent by the committee members discussing the issues as a group, was limited, and no attempt was made to contact outside persons and other universities, even though such a list was provided by counselling services. The committee received over twenty reports including a well-documented sixtypage report from counselling services, who naively welcomed a review of their operation. Even though the committee, from their understanding ,of the situation, assured counselling services that they were not on trial, I will attempt to illustrate that contrary to the committee members’ feelings, counselling was indeed on trial and ! the sentence was already decided. By and large the reports received by the committee represented personal opinions, private antagonisms and the behind-thescenes ‘politicking’ for which the university is notorious. A case in point was the brief submitted by Dr. Andrew, medical director of health services. Under a section entitled “Personal Opinions”. he writes: “I have many examples to prove conclusively that counsellors are inadequately ltrained to deal with emotional problems.. . . . In addition I have personally smelled marijuana in the counsellor’s suite of offices.. . .When I reported this to the director, he said it was possible that a group session was going on. I can no longer endorse this group. I have lost all confidence in them, *rid believe that it would be malpractice to refer patients to them in the future.” ~
None of these allegations with any evidence.
the chevron’ ’
Perhaps, however they make sense when in a later section of the brief Dr. Andrew writes : “Mental health care should be closely integrated with Health Services in the same building as one department. . . . If it is a part of Health Services proper it should be under the medical director as a fairly autonomous unit. .” , _ Attempting to separate fact from- fiction, personal opinion from professional , judgement and trying to ascertain exactly what was going on made the committees’ task,ominous and neeessjtated a great deal more attention than the evidence received. Amidst all the confusion the committee had to ascertain whether or not there was a
Let us now decide whether of not further developments in the counselling arena would support this contention. After two months of limited work the committee filed its report. The report was short and vague, representing the diverse opinions held by the committee members. The poor quality of the report was a function of a number of variables : l The amount of time the committee had to investigate ; l the lack of funds for primary research; l the lack of funds for travel expenses that would have allowed the committee to visit other campus operations; ~ l the limited knowledge of the committee members ; r l the quality of the submissions; l the sheer complexity and enormity of the task. All of the above point to the fact that the university was not really interested in the committee’s work. An adequate review of the needs of students and the general nature and function of counselling on campus was not within the intended scope of. the committee. lthough the report was inadequate .in many respects a number of A valid recommendations, based on recurrent themes, were brought forward. It was recommended that counselling should continue, that at present it should not be increased, that inter alia liason with other
needs and also with a ycertain <level of ignorance. For example, throughout the memo he suggests that the counselling model established in engineering and arts be employed throughout the university. Arts, however, does not have a counsellor in the same sense that engineering does. Arts employs an academic- counsellor. It would appear that Matthews does not understand the difference between an academic counsellor and a counsellor. On the grounds outlined above I would at least questionhis competence to unilaterally shift the focus of counselling services if not his ability to preside over the university. The memo further points to the conclusion that the whole task of the committe was a farce, and a smokescreen to decisions that were going to be made in any event. In general, Mathew’s proposal will decentralize counselling services. The .operation as students have experienced it will no longer exist. The central organization’s programmes will be reduced /as a-function of the reduction in the centre’s staff. HealthServices, if Dr. Andrews follows up the recommendations in his brief, will probably hire a part-time psychiatrist with the counselling services budget. (For a pertinent argument why psychiatrists should not be employed in a university setting see Thomas Sasz, Ideology and Insanity).
Furthermore by having to take’over the foreign student advisory programme without additional staff means in effect a reduction in budget,. Although in his brief President Matthews states that the budget will not be reduced, he means that the budget allocation of 185,000 (less than that of security) will remain the same. The operations, however, will not. A greater consideration than budget cuts is the reduction of the service and effectiveness of both the foreign student advisory system and the counselling system.

Shooting from the hip, fast-draw McGraw shooting down some people he never thought he’d have to draw a’ bead on with malice: Still Alive and Well (Columbia), the rebirth-from-the-ash&-ofaddiction album of Johnny Winter, is a clay pigeon. . . it doesn’t even bother to shoot back, This, as a few onlookers know, is a sad duty for me: Johnny Winter has never before put out a bad album,_ he has, in fact, been for me one.of the few bright lights in the fading dusk of the rock era. Johnny Winter, alive and on record, has provided some of the most exciting moments in rock- music. Me is particularly unique in the genre: with deep roots in blues, he has moved through rock-and-roll into hard rock and now into heavy-trio -+x& His talent on guitar spans the classifications; his first solo album was filled with some of +the best. electric and acoustic blues to be recorded, and, with, Johnny Winter And and since, he has turned out gutsy hard-rock which makes HuGble Pie and friends sound like beginners. The combination of Winter and Rick Derringer has been rivalled in rock guitar duo finesse only by the serendipitot.is get-together of Duane Allman and Eric Clapton for the Layla ses$ons. So,-after a layoff of two years or so while Winter pieced himself y together, what can we expect. We hard-core Winter fans obviously expected too much: Winter’s choice of material and his excitement are mostly gone op this album. Only on “Rock Me” is a real glimpse of the old Johnny Winter shining through, as he turns it into a hard-rocking power-trio version of the old blues-standard. Beyond th>t, the choice of material here verges on the absurd, with a ridiculous rendering of “Silver Train” only slightly more silly than when the Stones tried it out. Having’seen both Johnny and Edgar-Winter in person in the past year, and then been badly disappointed at their latest albums, 1 can only hope that they will both get a little further back to their musical roots and disavow the ego-tripping glitter-rock fad. Speaking of rock guitarists, Robin Trower’s new-and firstsolo LP, Twice Removed From Yesterday (Chrysalis), is a tantalizing taste of power-trio guitar which misses being worth theprice of admission by a few years. Trower, lead guitarist for the staid and safe Procul Harum lo these many years, just had to finally prove he could macho-rock with the best of them.. .and he can, too. His version of “Rock Me, Baby” proves he can include every cliche in the modern guitarist’s book, CaI>ILl.*. 1.1”
and then some, and it ‘is the only cut on the album not written by himself,along with various combinations of drummer Reg lsadore or bassist James Dewar. This is a very impressive album in many ways, and if people like Jimi Hendrix and Larry Corye_l!-,and John McLughlin hadn’t’ been toying with this kind of experimental jazz-rock several years ago, it might even be creative. As it stands, it is only entertainingly imitative. Much more impressive in a quiet way is Trower’s work-along with the rest of the group-on the re-release of Procul Harum’s first album, A Whiter Shade of Pale (A and M). This is the single which vaulted the group to a unique status among) rock groups in the late sixties, when it was first released. It was heavily classical in tone, and allowed the group to do regular experimental work with a full symphony orchestra, some of which worked, and some of which didn’t. But they were allowed by the public to expe,riment. One of those experiments, which came off fairly weil, happened dC>wn the road in Stratford’s muted theatre’ halls; another, which resulted in an impressive, if uneven, album, was their concert‘ in Edmonton. Not much on this first album is overwhelming-including the original version of the “Conquistador” cut which went very big for them as a single recently-but it is all listenable;competent, soft-rock. And, the title cut is almost worth buying the album for by ‘itself. Led Zepplin’s latest effort, called-for mystical reasons which I hope never to have explained to me-Hoyses of the Holy, is worthy of note for only two reasons: first, it has an intriguing and graphically arresting cover and, secondly, it signals, finally, the end to one of the best hard-rock English blues groups to emerge from that middle-sixties explosion. As the review of this album in Rolling Stone states, Led Zep has become one of those “senior, safe groups”, who have lost sight of the music which made them deservedly famous. This album is so pretentious it’s barely worth writing a bout. It is so selfassuming that not once anywhere on the. jacket are the- words “Led Zepplin” printed.. All the cuts are written by the Zep members, and they even have the gall to print the lyrics on the inside sleeve, and it is tempting to quote some here, but it’s too emba rassing. Suffice-it to say that Led Zep was a fine hard-rock interpreter of American blues once upon a time, but have outlived their talent. There is just enough justification on this LP to reinforce my belief that Jimmy Page was one of the best shit-kickin’ guitarists to come out of the British clubs, but un-
fortunately got tied to this bunch of losers. Cold Blood, on the other hand, is just beginning to get the attention they deserve, and Thriller! . (Warner Brothers) should prove to all skeptics that they deserve a listen. Lydia Pense is one of the most evocative female vocalists around, and Cold Blood plus a strong reinforcement of brass musicians give her exactly the kind of moving, gutsy backing she needs; the addition of the fantastic Pointer Sisters for background vocals is frosting on the cake. The choice of material is likewise just right, with such fine writers as Bill Withers, Boz Scaggs and Stevie Wonder being re-interpreted here. Time for three soft quickies: Michael Mur’phey’s Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir is just one of those albums I can recommend without having the slightest justification other than the fact that I like it. Murphy wrote all the songs here, and he is given to sentimental excesses, but Somehow they come off as attractive and disarming rather than banal and self-indulging. “Blessing in Disguise” and Cosmic Cowboy” are current fave-raves of mine. The LP is produced by Bob Johnston, the same man who produced-Bob Dylan, but that has not been hyped too much, and shouldn’t be. Arlo Guthrie’s Last of the -Brooklyn Cowboys (Warner Brothers) is the most substantial and most satisfying effort by him to date. Here he comes off very much like Arlo and less like ’ Woody’s son than ever. His material shows he is very much into the “hard-core” music, charming stuff like Jimmy Rodgers’ immortal rendering of “Miss the Mississippi and You”, “Lovesick Blues”, and his father’s “Ramblin’ Round”. He gets help from the likes of drummer Jim Keltner, guitarists Jesse Ed Davis and Ry Cooder, bassist Lee Sklar and fiddler Don Rich. x All in all, a very laid-back and relaxed album, with Arlo showirig he knows where to play and sing, and where to stand back and let it happen. Prelude, by Deodato, is one of frustratingly the most schizophrenic albums I’ve ever come across. The only reason anyone would buy this is the contagiously jazzrrockish single of the “2001: ’ Space Oddyssy” theme which hit big on the charts for this group. But, the other cuts on this LP are mostly mediocre lounge jazz (would you believe “Baubles, Bangles and Beads”?) which will do nothing but turn off any listener who-was lured to the album by the hit single. If, like me, you judged the album by’the “2001” release, give this a long listen before laying out any money. -george

Roman tradition of representing action, character and’ mood by means of gestures rather thanwords, was highly effectively integrated into the Stratford performance. Pantomime, especially at the beginning and end of scenes, heightened the visual and aural atmosphere-and added an indisputable colour, gaiety and charm. It’s quite difficult to botch up anything of William Sharkespeare’s, but the Sratford Festival Company’s acting was very fine. Miming seemed just the dimension needed to‘intensify and elevate, what was already a good ,/ thing. .>-susah gable ,-I Lc
Kate the cQgquerof .
Oliver Goldsmith, born in 1728,in Ireland, represents the timeless man-in-search-of-self image. His life was a harried 2nd frustrated one, and his lack of physical and social grace provided an outlet for the scornand ridicule of his fellow man. He wandered through Europe much like he-wandered in and out of occupations; teacher, somewhat physician, floutist, ha,ck-writer, assistant pharmacist. Goldsmith’s literary contributions consist of one novel, two comedies, one essay and two poems. This season the Stratford Shakespearian Festival performs his comedy ‘She Stoops To Conquer’. -’ The play is a laughing comedy, rather than a sentimental or satirical one. Its prime elements are fun and light ridicule. No heavy trips, traps, or symbolic innuendoes. No malice, pre-preached~ morality, or ;dirty laundry. Just a simple country comedy for to make us smile. Tony Lumpkin, as his name might suggest, is the prankster around whose actions the plot is dependent. The theme is one of mistaken identity. A young man - Charles Malrow, journeys to meet his future wife. Her home is mistaken as an inn and her father as the innkeeper. The comedy revolved largely around the growing indignation of the father, Mr. Hardcastle, in response to .. his treatment by his guests. Tony Lumpkin enjoys immensely the spectacle that he has created, bride-to-be Kate impersonates a bar-maid to catch Marlow off guard, friend Hastings has come along not to aid Marlow but to run off with Kate’s cousin Constance, etc. etcThere is a refreshing innocence and openness conveyed in all character. portrayals, which* facilitates a spontaneous audience response. The manner in which the deceptions ,are executed’ evokes not wrath .but warmth. Tony van Bridge has been well cast as Mr Hardcastle, and the entire group derives strength from the pivotal force of Alan Scarfe, as Tony Lumpkin. However Pat Bently-Fisher, playing Kate ’ Hardcastle, appears somewhat too coy and plasticized. ‘She Stoops To Conquer’ is not a great work but it is a diverting one. We won’t be elevated -but we can be - amused. if the end of all comedy is to entertain, Gold: + smith has triumphed. .
Shrew’ on at least two counts. Firstly, the play is a farce, and thus offers a holiday from truth and consequences. Secondly, Shakespeare is a master in timelesssness and universality; We can respond genuinely to the shrew’s tamer, Petruchio, in his attempts to establish his will over the shrew, Kate, just as we can empathize with Kate’s frustrations in maintaining her will‘ over that of Petruchio. The presentation at Stratford was very well done. Anni Lee Taylor, as Kate, and Alan Scarfe’as Petruchio, both came across with vitality -and strength. Within this taming plot is the relatively straight love theme of Kate’s_ sister Bianca, playedby Patricia Collins, and her suitors, Gremio, Tranio, Hortensjo and Lucentio. Powys Thomas, as Kate’s father, wants Kate married off before her sister Bianca. So the play within a play-the marriage of the one depending on the marriage of the other-convincingly unifies the whole. Bianca’s suitors are an -interesting array:_ William Needles as Gremio, portrays the traditional rich old Italian who chases young girls. He is very colorfully dressed in the harlequin fashion, and his facial contortions and mannerisms render him excellent in his role as a ridiculous over-aged iover. Nicholas Pennell (Hortensio) and Barry MacGregor (Tranio) are the other two losers in the bid for Bianca’s love. The winner is Richard. Monette, as Lucentio. Monette deserves praise for hjs sensitive and expressive protrayal: There were striking parallels between the Stratford production, directed by Jean Gascon, and the film, directed by Franc0 Zeffirelli. Apart from the coincidental similarity of the leading lady’s surname, both Kates and both Petrucios are look-alikes. What the film version lacked was the ingredient that made the Stratford play great: Mime. This ancient Greek-
E&e the - shrew
At a time when the medieval concept of woman’s subservience to her man was common fare, Shakespeare’s ‘Taming.of the Shrew’ was regarded as the tale of a spirited and defensive girl learning the hard way to handle her husband. The beautiful thing about Shakespeare is the almost perfectly adaptable nature -of his themes. Today’s feminist can relate to ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ in her own way with as much gratification as could the sixteenth century Renaissance Italian traditionalist. As long as chauvinists abound, so will stand the interpretation of a bitch being heeled. To the liberal or ‘humanist’, The Taming of the Shrew’ may be regarded as either the story of a woman retaining her dignity in spite of bridles and ridicule, or that ot a woman conquering her mate byappearing to be conquered. As you like it. W-e-( a .diverse ‘we’) can relate to ‘The Taming of the *.
Only- _ . A_ slightly I embarrassing .1 Don’t Embarrass the Bureau, by Bernard F. ‘Conners, Avon Books, (New York:1973); Don’t Emdairass the &ureau is a “first novel” by an, eight-year veteran of the FBI which has really only one merit: that it is one of the few books written about the FBI by an insider. As Mort Sahl has wryly noted, Gray was the best FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover. %e Hoover ruled the Bureau with an iron fist for ne@y mats existence-and, in the process, kept the inner workings and the scope of the FBI’s power an exceptionally wellkept secret, even in the inner confines of Washingtonalmost any reasonably reliable information about the organization from someone who has been inside is bound to be interesting. The FBI has become quite unique-and uniquely frightening-among the powerful institutions of ‘American politics and government.. Presidents have come and gone; supreme: courts have changed tenor with- the changing of presidents; congress is an everchanging, seemingly now powerless group; the American ‘military-while undeniably powerful-has been kept surprisingly impotent; and even the CIA has been mercilessly exposed to daylight through almostiaughable incidents such as the U-2, Bay of Pigs, ‘Indochina and now Watergate. But Hoover and the FBI have<remained, from the Bureau’s inception some 50 years ago, a faceless and evidently unchanging force, one , aloof. /from political _ fortunesand changes in national feelings. Hoover did not hold press conferences, was not friendly or talkative with any member of the press and was seemingly> not accountable to anyone in the U.S..government. The cases of the FBI keeping surveiliance and records on a subject on no one’s orders but its own presumably form only the tip of the iceberg of self-initiated activities. The only fictionalized accounts of the Bureau’s ‘activities have been silly, super-patriotic. whitewashes like the movie “The FBI Story” or the old TV series “I led Three Lives” or the current “FBI” TV series. Bernard F. Conners seems certain to embarrass the Bureau at least a little with his new book, even if he embarrasses the fraternity of professional novelists at the same time. . His prose is extremely basic and amateurish, often to the groan-ing stage. One can only ’ hope that this “first novel” is also a last novel. Conners has said his say. If anything, Conners seems often to go too far in his efforts to expose the slow-movi,ng, bungling ways of the FBI; there is not-in the entire book-a. dedicated or conscientous agent, nor an efficient and sueccessful operation. Every assignment is a comic&opera bungled scene which would be funny if Conners’ evident intentjon were not to seriously indict the inner workings of his former organization. We know from what history of the FBI is public, that it has and still is carrying out all-toosuccessful assignments. He gleefully and ironically exposes the “don’t-rock-fheboat” mode of operations (don’t embarrass the bureau” is the agents’ highest and most-repeated standard- for behavior). ‘An agent’s main aspiration is not to expose tommies or infiltrate organized crime, but to simply last it out to retirement without once having called attention to himself, either favorably or unfavorably.. . in other words, the FB.l is just like every other large corporation. Conner’s plot, while often intriguing’is mostly just silly, and he‘ leaves too many of his-questions hanging at the, end of the book-the reader doesn’t know if the bad guys are really bad guys, and is even left wondering whether one main character is male or female, or perhaps somewhere in between. Avon has hyped this book everywhere up to the N.Y. Times, and it is worth picking up,at the paperback price just for the glimpse it gives inside the FBI, but don’t expect a welt-written “thriller” or a rewarding mystery. =george-

should take precedence. It is not the case that the campus centre in the past has been a hot-bed of activity. Rather, it has resembled for the most part an Egyptian Tomb. It is my intention to promote many and varied activities ,within the campus centre to make it truly the students centre of activity. If one wants a place in which to merely sit and relax, there are many better equipped facilities on campus\ than the campus centre. The noise level and the huge size of the great hall make the place anything but facilitative for a quiet get together. It is my intention to try to change the campus centre from a passive building to a dynamic gathering place where the students can partake in sponsored activities. The activities would vary from Octoberfest to a debate among the students, administration, faculty and student government and to regular film nights and free concerts. The uselessness of the conflict of interest motion passed on the 13th of June meeting of the campus centre board was demonstrated at the board’s meeting of June 27. At the June !27 meeting Dave Robertson acted as proxy for Dave Assman, and Susan Johnson acted as proxy for G. Neeland. Robertson, a former arts student and now a full time member of the work force, was-a proxy for the science undergraduate constituents. Johnson, an arts student, was a proxy for the human kinetics and leisure studies constituency. The arts faculty,which is allowed one vote on the board, had three votes because of the proxies. It is ironic that the two members present via proxies, Susan Johnson and Dave Robertson, both from the arts constituency proxying for other faculties, tried to disenfranchise the legitimate arts representative. The following motion was offered by Robertson and Johnson: -that the arts on the campus centre board be declared vacant as the present representative has a full time job and has shown no proof of preregistration for the fall. The two people with the proxies were the only ones to vote for the motion, ‘and as such the motion was defeated. It is interesting to note that Dave Robertson, a full time worker, tried to disenfranchise the president of the federation of students. The president continues to be a member of the federation of students even if he devotes full time to the position. It is of further interest that the senate recognizes the president of the federation as a student even if he does not take any courses and recognizes his right to run for senate. It would seem that the !administration could be seen as screaming radicals when compared with these students, bureaucratic reactionaries. Robertson and Johnson, the two imported proxies, also presented the following motion: -in view of the fact that there is a policy relating the functions held in the campus centre great hall and in view of the fact that I believe that the holding of Octoberfest is not in the best interests of the users of the campus centre, I would like to move that the decisions of June 6, 1973 relating to Octoberfest be declared null and void. At the same time I would like to declare conflict of interest against Art Ram and Phil Lanouette because they . are members of the board of entertainment. Fred Bunting, chairman of the campus centre board, ruled the motion out of order. When Dave Robertson challenged the chair, Bunting gave the following rationale for his ruling._
july 13, 1973
1. No set rules exist which prevent the board from ignoring or contradicting an established policy. 2. It would be unreasonable to rescind the permission to hold Octoberfest in the campus centre in light of the amount of time, effort and money invested by the federa&ion to date. Seeing that only Robertson voted to overrule the chair, the ruling of the chair was upheld. The policy set by the campus centre board at its’ meeting on September 26, 1968 that-functions utilizing the great’ hall should be free admission and open to all- is not binding upon the present campus centre board. I further take exception to Robertson’s statement - “that I believe that the holding‘of Octoberfest is not in the best interests of the users of the campus centre .” If Robertson had such a great interest in representing the students on the campus centre board and the federation of students then he should have run for office. Without a mandate from the student body, Robertson has no legitimacy in trying to legislate on behalf on the student body. Both engineering and the math societies supported “Octoberfest ’ ’ . Robertson and Johnson moved yet anot her motion : -that no member of the federation of student’s council, executive or executive boards be allowed to hold a position on the campus centre board. 1 Robertson challenged Telegdi (arts), Ram (engineering), Lanouette (math) and Bunting (chairman), regarding conflict of interest on this issue. In line with the campus centre board conflict of interest policy passed June 13, it was agreed that a mail poll of the remaining eligible members be conducted to resolve the conflict of interest issue involving the above-named members. By eliminating the members mentioned, Robertson eliminated representatives to the board with a combined constituency of 8,000 students. It is strange that Robertson failed to challenge Assman, a member of the federation executive and students council. Feeling that the remaining members on the campus centre board did not represent the student body at large, I challenged the entire board membership. It is hard to believe that the campus centre board passed a conflict of interest policy that was so utterly absurd. Ram offered his resignation as a representative on the campus centre board to the engineering executive, but his offer was rejected. The engineering executive felt that Ram was the best person to represnt the engineering students at this time and sent .a memo to that effect. As to the chaos caused by the proxies, to add the stipulation that a proxy may only. be given to an individual within the member’s constituency. As both Robertson and Johnson are from the arts faculty and are eligible to act as proxies for the arts consituency, I doubt that they will be allowed to vote on the campus centre board this year. Susan Johnson will have to be content with doing her unbiased reporting in the Chevron-I am sure. As president of the federation of students and member of the campus centre board I fail to see a conflict of interest. Because of my role as president of the federation of students and the interaction that I have with the various societies and the student body at large, I am able to bring an added awareness to the board. My interest is to serve the student body. If that is what conflict of interest means, then I plead guilty. -andrew telegdi

‘Humour lost . on meatballs I am -writing concerning an attitude frequently expressed in the Chevron, that concerning the character and morals (if they exist) of engineers. I fully realize that no one forces Eng. Sot. to place its name on Enginews, that piece of sexist shit as you so correctly labelled it. Apparently, most engineers wish to be presented as horny inebriated uncouth idiots. This attitude is actively fostered by the executive of the present and seemingly all past Eng. Sot. executives. Speaking for myself however, this portrayal is ridiculous, and the reason for its application is difficult to discern. None the less, such a view from both
The Chevron is by and large a well executed newspaper. Your continuing attack on Engineers is not needed. In so doing, you lower yourself to the abysmal depths to which Enginews serves to drag the engineering faculty. Your recent page -of ‘humour’ was a waste of time, as the sarcasm and satire will be lost on the meatballs in the Eng. Sot. office, who ’ consistently show themselves incapable of any sort of process resembling thought. In addition, I am tired of your portrayal of engineers and thus myself as gauche heathens, whose only purpose in being on campus is to get laid and/or drunk as often as possible. I get enough of that bullshit from my own faculty. Further more, some engineers are actually polite and intelligent. A few are capable of treating women as people, not objects, and some have other interests besides booze, dirty jokes, and pornography. In conclusion, lay off the engineers. Most of them are too stupid to fight back.
