Special Conwwation Monday, February lst, the University of Waterloo and Waterloo University College will have the privilege of hearing one of the great A Cappella choirs of the United S.tates. A special Convocation is being held at 10 a.m. for all College students to hear the 65-voice Augsburg College Choir from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The director is Leland B. Sateran, chairman of the school’s Department of Music, who has a rich background in choral music and whose compositions are used by choral groups throughout the United States and Canada. Its performance at Seagram Stadium is one of four in Canada on a tour which covers Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, OnMichigan, Wisconsin and tario, Minnesota. Sunday, January 3 1st, the Augsburg Choir .will sing at St, Matthew’s Lutheran Church and St. -Mark’s Lutheran Church, both in Kitchener. On Saturday, January 30th, the Shakespearean Festival Theatre will be opened for a special performance in Stratford.

The meeting of the Students’ Legislat,ive Executive was called to order by the president at 7:00 19, 1960, in the P-m-9 January Board Room. Those present: Carry Morton, Chuck Powers, Garry Caldwell, Paul Creighton, Pablo Machetzki, John Enns, Bruce Lumsden, Larry Cohen, Dr. Durst. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The next item was the report from the Union Council representative, Garry Morton. Garry reported that the U.S.C. had lnet for the first time as the students’ council of the University of Waterloo the other night. It has yet to draw up a constitution. The whole organization depends on what the ’ S.L.E. is going to do with their own constitution. Therefore, he suggested that the S.L.E. should begin working on their constitution. He also informed, the members that each faculty council should appoint a judicial committee. It was moved by Paul Creighton, seconded by Bruce Lumsden that this report be accepted. Carried.

VOX LIBORUM At the January Filth meeting of the University of Waterloo Students’ Council, definite measures were taken to facilitate the planning of the University of Waterloo Student Union Building. The Student Union Building Fund was established by the 1957-58 student body. Each student since, has paid ten dollars per year which is to apply toward this fund. Jack Buchanan, Gary Morton, and Robert Wyckham met with three members of the Alumni to discuss the organization and the necessary steps to be taken in the planning of the building. It was decided that, initially, a committee should be organized which would function each year, thus assuring continuity in the development of the plans. Contact with other universities as to the nature and the maintenance of their student buildings would also provide valuable information. The committee to be appointed for planning will be authorized by the constitution, with certain members serving for more than one year. Our Alumni has indicated a genuine and much appreciThey are willing to sacrifice time ated spirit of co-operation. and give of their talents to aid us in this venture. It follows naturally that the students should be vitally interested in their investment and therefore give their support and initiative if called upon to serve on the planning committee. Many of us will have graduated by the time the proposed Nevertheless, such a building would building is in operation. be a tribute to the foresight and enterprise of those students responsible for the planning.






Now that exams are over for a little while and you are able to take a deep breath, would you like to read some books with a chuckle in them? These are not new books; you may have already made their acquaintance. Here is one for the harried business student. It is called “How to Run 3 Bassoon Factory or Business Explained and Business for Fleasure,” by a mythical author, Mark Spade. There is an appreciation Df the late Mr. Spade by Nigel Balchin. It seems that Mr. Spade has come to a sticky end as the result of a disagreement with a foreman over a large adjustable wrench. Nigel Balchin appreciates Mr. Spade tenderly because, after all, he is Mr. Balchin’s brain\ child.

I wonder if the professors have as much fun marking essays as we have writing them? Apparently one of the senior girls’ residents spent an evening contemplating the evils of locked doors. Anyone have extra keys? Two girls have left Conrad Hall. Does apartment life solve the problem? I haven’t had any comments on the last issue of the Cord . . . I must be gettinlg soft!

CUEIS FROM CONRAD An innovation in Room 5, a very picturesque clothesline, addIs much to the decor and proved itself extremely useful when a certain resident came home dripping wet. As there was no evidence of rain on that fateful day, we are wondering what mishap (or conspiracy) produced the drenched appearance. All the unfortunates whose birthdays occur during the summer vacation are transferring their dates to a more suitable time during the school term in order to merit one of our housemother’s delicious cakes. However, we still haven’t decided whether birthdays celebrated in this manner are belated or advanced, and it does cause some controversy in determining the number of candles. Many newly acquired bruises are due to a well-iced and frequently used slide behind the dorm. Also in the line of winter sports is the competition between residents of Conrad and the neighbouring dorm for the privilege of shovelling the sidewalk.

Whether you are aware of it or not the Summer-Winter Quarter of engineers is back. We would like to welcome all our freshmen to the University of Waterloo and thank them for their co-operation during the initiations. We hope you met and got to know your classmates, surroundings, sliderules, seniors, nurses’ residences, and the YWCA. (Don’t ask US how you meet a slide-rule or a surrounding). Seriously, without initiations, to accomplish all this would have taken you at least a month and in this course a month means everything. We sincerely hope that you grasped the basic purpose behind initiations and most of all that you had a lot of fun. The initiations were only marred by one incident. The gym, which had been reserved for weeks in advance by the engineers for the “Freshmen Court”, was not relinquished by Mr. Totzke in time for said event to be held. Strange, it also seems that Mr. Totzke was never around in the summer quarter when he was needed. We would also like to congratulate the forty odd (and we mean just that) engineers who have been here since July, 1959, without a break. Hang on, fellows, only two more ’ months. As probably most of the senior students know, the Summer - Winter Quarter has published “Enginews” as a separate newspaper for the last three terms. In fact, the last time we wrote for a combined Arts - Engineering publication was back in the school year of 1957-58 (if you can remember that far back). We have been asked many questions why the “Enginews”, in those days a publication of five to nine pages, is not being published separately this term. There are many reasons for the amalgamation of the two publications. Now that the question of federation finally seems to be settled, we feel that a University paper might benefit both institutions. We hope that this paper will acquire such a nature. The circulation and thus the power of the voice of the students will be increased. To please everybody, “Enginews” will have its own section so as not to lose its individuality. The “Enas we cannot work on the ginew s” staff will be kept intact same schedule as the “Cord Weekly” staff, the chief reason being the nature of our course. We hope that you will give us your opinion (either for or against) on the amalgamation. These may be in the form of “Letters to the Editor, Enginews”. In closing, we would like to say that the “Enginews” is a publication of the non-denominational University of Waterloo and is responsible only to the above mentioned institution, along with the Editorial Board, for articles printed therein.

Why I Like Tina Louise Anyone wishing to contribute anything to “Enginews” like articles, pictures, jokes, money, phone numbers, suggestions, criticism, scientific news, opinions, gossip, announcements, sadism, etc., may do so by putting their contribution in the mailslot marked “Enginews” in the mailbox on the second. floor of the Physics building. Anyone wishing to work on. the “En’ginews” staff may also do so (please, pretty please, do so) by getting in touch with the editor or your class rep. Would the members of the present staff watch the bulletin board for the next meeting of the “Enginews” staff. As you can see this article has nothing to do with Tina Louise; we only wanted you to read this article. Actually we don’t like Tina Louise at all; we like Doris Day.

Have you seen 12,O people in a bus that was made to carry 46 or 5O? Well, then you will have some idea what it was like. Upon our arrival in Kitchener we disembarked from the bus and formed orderly(?) ranks of two and marched d*own Kinlg Street. After several choruses of that famous choral piece “The Engineering Hymn” we switched to spirited marching songs such as “Bridge of the River Kwai” and “Ma I want to be an artsman well son your censored censored fool”. The LOO,FES ended their trek at the YMCA-or was it the YWCA -well, there was a dance anyway and several of the LOOFESI filled up their Kitchener blackbooks for future reference. The next. night we”h&%Te Kangaroo Court and the LOOFES were severely(?) punished for their crimes of disobediance as they had been threatened they would be all week. This mayhem was followed by. a big(?) dance in Seagram’s Gym-or was it Carling’s Brewery? On the whole the Initiation foll)owed the functional pattern that our Summer-Winter quarter has chosen in the past. The main requirements that had to be met by the LOOFES, were the wearing of the traditional mgineering hat and the wearing of signs proclaiming to all that they were LOOFES and proud of it. Their names also appeared on the signs to help them get acquainted with each other and to facilitate our handling of them. The ZOGFES were also required to carry slide rules at all times and to be! able to use them on command from any senior. Well that just about raps up the initiations and I hope that all of you en joyed yourselves (including the instigators of the petitions, etc.) and that you will be on hand next January to help out with our next imtiation.

Initiation is defined by Webster LS the rites, ceremonies, ordeals, )r instructions with which one s made a member of a sect or Fociety. During the LOOFES intiation we tend to stress the in‘ormative or functional aspect of he initiation while at the same ime we are forming the rites or ceremonies for future generations If engineering students at the Jniversity of Waterloo. The Intiation got its start on Tuesday afternoon when Jack Kruuv conlucted a slide-rule course with lis pocket slide-rule (6 ft. by ! ft.). All was running smoothly until, some joker producer a cirular slide-rule. (Jack is still runiing around in circles) I would ike to suggest at this point that iext year we have a set of slideule notes run off and handed out. am suggesting this for two reasIns; one is that a slide-rule can )e a very functional tool in engin:ering and secondly, there are ‘ellows in third year who can mly multiply and divide with hem. (of course their excuse is hat as soon as we have the comjutor, slide-rules will become obsolete). Later on in the same evening #he LOOFES were separated into imall colourful groups and taken n hand by their task-masters. [“he reason for this division was ,o. acquaint the LOCFES with )ther students who were not in .heir own section and to make he groups easier to handle. I also have another suggestion for lext year: how about breaking ;he LOOFES down into groups of me with ten big brothers to ;upervise his activities? This sugzestion is the result of one of the groups turning on their likeable, lenevolent and gracious tasknaster (and I still have the Druises to prove it). The tasks were of an assorted variety (?) such as shovelling out driveways; pushing Big Brother’s car (since he wanted to save gas) ; stapling old exam papers together; (incidentally they will soon be on sale at two-bits a set, I think?) ; and serenading Willison Hall or was it Conrad-1 forget, On Wednesday night things really got underway with a tug-

This column will attempt to be a bi-occasionally production of anecdotes, jokes, and useful (? ) information. To get the term off to a good start I have a little gem of information for all you students who find a slide-rule inaccurate and wish a more exact answer. The information is this, Pi. to 110 decimal places. Well, here we go: 3,.141159,26535;89793,23846,62643,383#217,95028,84197,16939,9375,1,05820,9~7494,45923,07816,40628,6,2089,98628,03482,53421,17067,98214,80865. I also have a comment on the Engineering Society Book Store. Have you ever gone over there during the listed open hours and found it closed? Is that what’s bothering you, boy? Well, the solution is simple, just go there during the unposted hours. By the way I hear that the “Governor” is offering a slightly used “do-it-yourself” barber kit at a real bargain price. (His wife insists he give it away).. The grape-vine has it rumoured that the Engineering Week-end will be held on the 4th and 5th of March. It is also rumoured that the Engineers have graciously offered to defend the champion ship they won last year in basket-

ball over the (boo) arts students. If this does come about it will be held on the night of the 4th of March. Perhaps “Terrible Tom Troughton” will attempt to recoup his victory of last winter and coach the “Terrors” again. One professor attempting to teach some engineering scholars classical algebra said “If some enterprising Greek of ancient Greece was offering 2 togas at the ridiculously low price of 36 denarii how much would 1 toga Cost?” The student who answered must have been a relative of “Honest Ed” for he answered: “35 denarii since it was a one denarius sale”. Well if the grout doesn’t catch iguanodon and the interfluve isn’t follo’wing the leibnitz rule you will hear from me again. Will any student who brought records to the “Bermuda Bop” last summer and came away with a Johnlny Mathis record “Warm” instead of their own record by Les and Larry Elgar-t please get in contact with George Newton, or Ross Clark or anyone else connected with the Engineering Society about getting their record back.

By SlNBAD Now that we have all decided to become one big happy family, perhaps it will be possible for us to enter into sports activities in the intercollegiate field on a larger scale. This will probably be as slow in coming as federation itself was, but at least there are possibilities. As it stands now most of the participants in sports come from the Arts faculty. There are a few participants from the boys down below but there aren’t any campus teams as such. Too much support comes from one faculty. The picture may be different, The engineering faculty is becoming larger all the time and if they become as active as they are vociferous then they will contribute a great deal to, the intercollegiate scene. With the entrance of St. Jerome’s there should be some strong support add.ed. The boys there seem to be good athletes and will help out if they become interested in the University Activities. All in all, next year should prove to be a better year sports-

wise. There is a good chance that some better organized interfaculty competition will spring up* On a less happy note it is rather disconcerting to go down to the curling rink on Tuesday night and find only six to twelve participants. Earlier this year a schedule was drawa up of those who signed for curling; but since then it has been given very little support by the enthusiasts, who felt they would like some good fun and exercise. It is true that curling does conflict with bowling but even those who are not doing the latter and have .signed for curling are not coming out. It is also true that the nitwits who have a habit of signing false names to lists have made it impossible to draw up an accurate schedule. However, there was an effort made and these organizers should be rewarded in some way. Let’s get out to the Granite Club if you have signed up. If we are not careful we could lose the ice time to some other organization.

Tuesday night the Waterloo College girls’ basketball team played a close and fast game at London. The score was 40-39 for Western. The first half started ofl slow as the forward line of Joan Rennie, Joan Reesor and Donna Kelly took a little time to gel their plays going. But in spite of this slow start and constant calls of “guarding too close”, the girls fought for a close score and lost by only one point. The second half was actually a victory in plays and score for Waterloo. The close guarding of Dale Perrin, M.arg Steele, Carole Dietrich and Joanne Roberts kept the opposition from scoring and ,kept the ball in the hands of the forward line. High scorer for the game was Kelly with 18 points. The girls had tremendous spirit and really deserved to win the game. A continuation of this type of play should result in a successful season for the team. ’

This week, *your roving reporter gathered comments on this topic: “1999 A.D. What is your comment?” Art Pollack: “I hope to be out of Waterloo University.” (There is a possibility, Mr. Pollack, that you may be out much sooner). Al Emerson: “The best brains of science will be devoted to perf ecting superhuman athletes. Scientists will develop 8 foot basketball players, and 300 pound linemen who can run 100 yards in 9 seconds.” (Mr. Emerson has volunteered himself as a subject in these experiments.) Herbert Epp: “The Federal Liberal Party will have completed 37 years of prosperous and intelligent government after winning the 1962 election.” (Mr. Epp is the unbiased president of the Politics Club.) Gary Morton: “In view of the overwhelming victory of the CCF party in the mock parliament held at the University of Toronto, I see a socialist government in the nation’s Capital.” (Mr. Epp and Mr. Morton will duel, with cupcakes at ‘thirty paces.)

John Erb: “Fencing will be the national pastime.” (Sign up for lessons now! See John.) John Horman: “It was a rough year.” (Always look to the future, John.) Martin Onrot: “I am a pessimist, 1999 will definitely mark the end of the twen,tieth century.” (What will happen to Walter Cronkite? ) John Schiel (Honours Psychology) “Psychologists will run the world and we will have a government that is SANE! SANE! SANE!” Larry Cohen: “The world will be divided into four countries which will live peacefully together. They will be called East Russia, West Russia, North Russia and South Russia.” (Thank you, Comrade Cohen.) Charlie ,Tindall: “I predict it. will be a great year for oligopolists.” (So what, Charlie.) Nora Schedler: “I figure my pills should have worked by then.” (Torque Room)

The Waterloo Mules played host to the league leading Ryerson hockey club January 14, and no out-of-town team could expect m o r e gracious, condescending treatment! We will be very coy and reserve and forget (accidentally) to mention the score. It was considerable! Since the brand of hockey is not noteworthy we will proceed to mention a few of the aside incidents and try to place the actual outcome of the game into oblivion. (I am being paid handsomely by the team to do this) The club’s leading contender for the Golden Gloves Crown, namely Bill Wieller, had another fast work-out in the second period as he won a decision over his Ryerson opponent. The crowd at last had something to cheer about and they gave Bill a standing ovation as the warrior proudly skated to the penalty box in regular Fontinato style, Coach Rafferty was strangely quiet as he mentally calculated the number of goals that Ryerson had scored when the team wasn’t shorthanded. Another amusing incident happened in the third period as a “likeable” chap named Kruzel sroused the wrath of the fans as , he calmly skated to the penalty box waving his stick in ah up and down motion to the booing group of Waterlooins. Needless to say he was telling the group in well ) known sign language just what i he thought of them and where they could go. The crowd screamed their appreciation by noting his most distinguishing characteristic and for the rest of the game “greaseball” was the apple of their eye. Unfortunately greaseball’s head was sandwiched between the boards and Bernie Fransen’s gloves and he made his shaky exit a few minutes before the end of the match. The vocal support of the fans was great and even though they had to look long and hard to find anything to cheer about everybody seemed to have a good night (except the team). Bob Rafferty had one good quote as the team moved out of the dressing room for the final session“OK ladies, ‘let’s go”. ;:

The stain proves the girl had normal lips; one at the top and one at the bottom. The imprint slopes from right to left; this could mean many things but most important is the fact that her shoulders are pro.bably at the same angle. This could mean she had a paper route as a child or that she carries her wallet, which is loaded, in her left hand pocket, Her mother may have been a Tibetan Sherpa; had our subject been born on a Himalayan mountain side the gradual slope of the stain is explained. Or take the obvious view, the girl was stinko! The outline of the upper lip forms a perfect moustache, proving that this girl was once an active member of the CO.T.C., but the lower outline shows that this moustache sagged miserably during wet weather thereby explaining j why our subject was

forced to resign from the corps The black mark on the lower left hand side seems to suggest that this girl was smoking while osculating, surely an unusual procedure. (This was verified by a check with Jim N. A small concentric burn is visible both in his shirt and in his neck. That he felt no physical pain seems to suggest he was also stinko.)

How accurate were these guesses? The young lady in question supplied us with the correct information, which is; The Slopethe girl has a broken neck; the contour of the upper lip-her ancestors used crossbows at the third Crusade; the black markinherited from her mother who’ sold hotdogs at Gettysburg, and burnt her lip on a really hot one.


At the general meeting next Sunday, January 31, Newman Club members are giving a Panel Discussion: All Forms of Censorship Should be Abolished. Some very definite views against Censorship have been -stated, so this discussion should prove rather interesting. Questions will be welcomed from the floor. See you Sunday, Newmanites!
