The first motion was made at the S.L.E. meeting last Thursday evening, when president Ian Fraser vacated his chair to Mortimer Bistrisky, national NFCUS president. “The position of student government here is now intolerable,” said Mr. Fraser. He called for a motion that the S.L.E. accept the precepts set down in the revised constitution, at least until a constitution for a university students’ council can be made. The four Engineering representatives present requested time to think this matter over, and to discuss it with the rest of the Engineering Society. Backing their

request, they pointed out that this item had not appeared on the agenda, or they would have had more representatives there. In the opinion of the S.L.E., enough time had been given to this topic, and it was necessary to get something concrete established, there and now. Let it be said once and for all, that this was not “a plot” on the part of the Artsmen to-put something over on the Engineers -the Artsmen had no more time to think it over than did the E’ngineers. The vote, of course, ended with a “pro” majority. What do the Engineers want? A completely autonomous Engineering Society, that can decide on Engineering, matters of the Engineers, for the Ehgineers, and by the Engineers. They do not want to present a budget to the S.L.E.; they want direct and complete control of their finances. They do not feel it possible for the Engineering Society to function capably under the jurisdiction of the SL.E.


The sedond motion, presented at a meeting of the Engineering Society Monday afternoon, summed up their desires. They voted not to accept the S.L.E. constitution, and to work on setting up their own constitution. A committee consisting of Jack Kruuv, Al Strong, Joe Eskr$t, Bill McGratton and Bob Kuhi was selected to present this constitution to their Board of Governors. There were twenty Engineering representatives present, with a guest speaker. The latter was Mr. A. A. Bruneau, B.Ss., a lecturer of mathematics at the .Associate Faculties. He is the past president of the E’ngineering Society of the ’ University of Toronto, and he outlined the set-up’of that body. In his opinion, Waterloo Engineers are ready for such a society, and should draw up a constitution immediately - “YQU are nothing until you have a constitution.” He said that when more faculties are set up here, then a co-ordinating body will be necessary; now, it is not. He told the Engineers to “strive for complete freedom, subject ONLY to your deans and faculty members.”

“A society for Engineers needs a free hand”, “don’t wait for the go-ahead from Artsmen”, “as long as you must work within the structure of another student organization, you are not going to have a very effective Engineering These were some of the out a Society”. (Continued on paeg 4)

Last week when we were in Ottawa we had the good fortune to visit the new campus of Carleton. Although it is not yet finished, it does give promise of being the MOST beautiful campus in Canada when it is completed. We saw a site well chosen for its beauty and proximity to the city. The actual location has two buildings finished and one more will be ready by the summer of 1959. Like our campus, Carleton is in the throes of construction. There, unfortunately, all similarity ends. The Science building at Carleton is a five story, ultramodern aluminum, steel and glass structure. It is complete with panel lighting in the ceilings of all the laboratories in spite of the fact that they have immense areas of glass windows. There is more space than is really necessary for the stairs but this gives the whole place an aura of spaciousness that is truly inspiring. The effect is enhanced by the main lobby which runs right through the building. On one side it is at ground level but, because of the topographical features of that campus, the other side is fully two stories above the ground and the view is unparalleled. The Library is opposite the Science building and is equal to it in design though not in size. There are hundreds of feet of bookshelves and a score of small reading and studying rooms for private use. There are even plans for small research rooms in which all the books which pertain to a particular course will be found. On the third side of this square is found the Arts building which is still under construction. Connecting all these is a tunnel which will eventually run completely around the square when the fourth building is built. By Dale Perrin We hope for all these conveniences in our own campus. Talent is something not all of us possess. It is usually considered It is with the outward appearance of the buildings that we as a rare gift; exercised by those to whom it has been given and wish to take issue.

It is a delight to go into the gymnasium on a Wednesda: night and see all four badminton courts being used. It i equally delightful to wander into the same gym on a Tuesda: evening and notice that a large number of the staff are taking advantage of their allotted night. It is gratifying in general to see that more use is being made of the recreational facilitie we have. 1. There are several good reasons for this rejuvenatior First and foremost, as you have probably noticed, by the in creasing number of signs on the bulletin board, the athletil activities are getting a greater amount of publicity. This i s due to the fact that Athletic Director Carl Totzke has marl e time to do so. With the addition of Bob Celeri and Bol b Rafferty to the coaching staff, and the possibility in the nea r future that Carl will be working in a full-time capacity, it makes it possible for him to do many of the odds and end s that haven’t been taken care of. I can assure you that lack of organization has not bee] n caused by the Athletic Director. Carl would be the first tc0 admit that intra-mural sport has not functioned properly. At the same time he says that he hasn’t had the time to organizl e as well as he wanted. I agree. When we realize that McMaster has nine full time work ers on their sports staff, we can see the picture. At, thl e present we have three part-time employees and an athletil c directorate. Granted that McMaster is bigger, but when WI e look at the ratio, we will see once again that we are awa: y behind. Rejuvenation also comes from the fact that some of thl e students suddenly realized that they needed some physica .l education credits. To some people this is a necessary evil, tc0 some a troublesome duty, and to others a form of relaxatior 1. For the staff, they are probably finding out that they cal n have an enjoyable evening playing volleyball or badminton 1. It’s as simple as that. Or perhaps some of them are tryin] to combat middle age and the accompanying “spare-tire’ More credit to them. But at any rate it is enjoyable to see this new interesi I’m sure that the sky is the limit. The gym is there and it i S essential to all students that they have at least some sort oIf physical exercise. If you are not participating in any sport s at all, you had better grab a badminton racquet or a basket ;ball and get out on the gym floor. The Athletic Director an Directorate will be only too happy to help you in any wa: Y they can. -1 L Y.

In the second period, Jack Taylor scored, and immediately after, defenceman Bill Weiler tied it up for Waterloo. Yakimoff put Mat into the lead with his second goal of the night, but the ever dependable combination of Knox and Taylor came through, with Knox getting the tying goal. The score remained this way at the end of the period. In the third period, Taylor drove in beautifully and scored his second goal of the night. Vic Durish, on a long rush from his own end put Waterloo two ahead. But Ferguson brought Mat within one goal again. Then Ted Witty scored the insurance tally for Waterloo, and the game ended with the score 7-5. This was a rough, hard-hitting game, with many penalties given on both sides. For Waterloo,
