Ron was born and educated .ocally. He is a twenty-year-old sophomore in Honours Economics Ron was responsible for the organizing of the partisan politica: clubs on campus. He has been ar active member of both the Poli. tics Club and the Newman Club Recently Ron won the Ontaric championship in public speakins for the Canadian University Liberal Federation. With the forthcoming federation of the various colleges with the University of Waterloo, the Union Council will have great significance. The president of the future council has a formidable task facing him. I believe that the position of the presidency demands a person who will acknowledge the autonomy and individual rights of the various faculties. However, such a statement may appear to as one which advocates division among the faculties. On the contrary, it is only through autonomy that a strong, unified, stable Union council will develop. The University of Waterloo student body must take a foothold in the community. Locally many people do not know what we are doing here or what the University is. If I am elected I should like to speak to community groups and service organizations, in order to acquaint them with the student community’ and its problems. Furthermore I would urge them to consider seriously the need for scholarships and bursaries at the University level. (Continued page 6, col. 5)

Recently, considerable controversy has accompanied the question of retaining the NFCUS organization on this campus. In response to the controversy, two NFCUS representatives appeared at Waterloo last week to explain the function and purpose of this organization to the students. Previous to the student meeting, this reporter had an interview with one of the representatives, Mr. Jacques Gerin, the National President of NFCUS. Mr. Denis Halliwell, the President of the Ontario Region and a student at Western: was also present. The aims of NFCUS can be placed under three general headings: Representation, Communication and Services.

Congratulations to Miss Marilyn Fisher. We are all happy with the selection of this year’s Frosh Queen. Please don’t miss the Spring Tea, Saturday, March 26. If you would’ be willing to help, contact Andrene Shearer. Let’s all get behind the Politics Club in its attempt to introduce individual political organizations on campus. Obviously this is something which is long overdue. Well, we didn’t improve conditions much by our beefs, but, we tried. One word to that person who is “away out in left field”, congratulations on your “coming” engagement. Or didn’t you know you were getting engaged? We wish you all the best of luck in the coming exams. For those of you who will be graduating, it’s been nice knowing you. And, for the rest of us who may not be around next year it’s been great. PHI DELTA PI The big project on hand right now is the tea we are planning for all the .girls, the faculty, the alumni and mothers. We want everyone to come to the Torque Room between 3:00 p.m. and 5:QO p.m. on Saturday, March 26th, and talk your mother into coming along. This is not only an opportunity for good fellowship, but also a chance for the mothers to get a look at what we are talking about when we mention ‘school’. A tour of the new buildings, a white elephant sale, and a china display are also scheduled for the afternoon: Please be cooperative when we solicit your help because this is going to take a lot of work and we want it to be successful. On Thursday we ratified the constitution and discussed changing the name of our organization at an o,pen meeting. Notice of the result of the vote (for the name) will be posted today. These things are all important for the girls as a group. Our final fudge sale did not have too much support, but it helped us to coime closer to our goal for an award which we hope to presenit. This award is to be in the form of a $50.00 scholarship for some deserving girl in the Sophomore, Junior or Senior class of ‘60 - ‘61. After the tea, the big event will be our Phi Delta dance. This will take place during the week after Easter and the date will be announced later. This will be the last event for the group and therefore we suggest that you plan to attend. To be sure of’ getting him, you might as well ’ invilte your favourite guy nowor perhaps we could all turn the tables and do our inviting the night before. We have had a terrific year. I am sure that all the girls who have taken the trouble to participate, have benefitted a lot from this organization this year. It is quite clear that we have progressed tremendously in the year of ‘59 - ‘60 and I am sure that we will continue to do so next year too. CUES FROM CONRAD The whole of Conrad Hall has been involved in very shocking conduct lately. The contact of a hand with almost anly object in the dorm produces simultaneously a startling crackle, a sudden spark and a yelp of surprise from the unsuspecting receiver of the jolt. Not as shocking, but equally irritating is the rapid succession of (Continued page 3, col. 3)








. VOX LIBRORUM’ I While you are a student, beware of the fallacy of thinking, “When I graduate and have no more essays to write, exahs to study for and deadlines to meet, I’ll read that book.” Read it now! After graduation there are other kinds of deadlines to meet. The time will never come when you will sit down with a mind free from pressure and say, “Now I’ll read that book which Professor X recommended.” If the information will be valuable, read it now. If the knowledge gained will add to your slender store, read it now. If the experience of reading that book will add to your stature as a person, read it now. There has been some talk of books falling into disuse in the future because of new methods of I audio-visual communication. This will never happen unless it should be made possible to stop the program as you would put your fingers between the pages of a book, think through the problem or dream a while, and then start it again! just wh,ere you left off. It will have to be possible to have that part again as you would reread a paragraph or a page for better understanding of it or in order to memorize the material. Although it may be very easy to learn by watching a presentation on a screen (T.V. or other), and information presented through a picture is a sugar-coated pill, 1 there is no joy quite like that of touching, examining and owning a book. There is pleasure in opening a new book. The printer’s ink is fresh and black and fragrant between the unmarked white margins. The paper is smooth or a little rough. The title page bears its message of “where”, “when” and “what others”. The dedication piques the curiosity or offers a crumb of verse, and the preface answers the question “why”. You scan the table of contents or chapter headings and check to see if there is an index. There are all these points of interest and epjoyment before you begin to unravel the mystery of the book it-

self. For some people, old books hold a keener enjoyment than new ones. In old books there are book plates of delicate design or overornate taste, signatures of note or little homely messages. “For Tommy on his 12th birthday, with best wishes from Aunt Bessie.” The smell of the yellowing\paper and the stiffening calf binding is a penetrating, pleasant one. The imprint of a famous printer, long gone, sometimes adds value, or the stamp of a famous book shop, “The Newberry Book Shop, St. Paul’s Churchyard.” Sometimes a date is an all-important factor in the actual value of a book. The date of a printing may have other points of interest. One such as “La deuxieme an&e de la premiere republique” opens a wide field of conjecture. One’ can imagine that there was difficulty in getting it printed because of the turmoil accompanying the Revolution. The printer’s apprentices kept running out to watch the tumbrils carrying the aristos to the Place de 1’Execution. Part of the fascination of an old book is in the search for clues to the personality of its former owners. The personality is revealed in the ,passages underlined and in marginal notations. There is a story told of an old scholar who was a fierce Southern sympathizer. The public library was forced to suspend his membership because of his fiery notations beside any passage which disagreed with his views. In speaking of the joy in books, I’ve dealt only with the physical aspects; the pleasure of touching a well-,bound book, turning the pages to enjoy the illustrations and the design; the distinctive fragrance of a book whether new or old. The intellectual enjoyment of the book, - the search for information, the stimulation of the entertainment new ideas, value, all this is a well-known tale to students in a Liberal Arts college. Remember Chaucer said “On book& for to read, I me delight.”

But I always made it. Further more: for info our stnadards here are real high. We got a high failing rate and a lot of people get the axe in the first or 2nd year. So it bears mention to say that avrage is worth like my “D” about a “B” from other secular places with librarys. I wasn’t much fjor extra ciriculum actions. This place dosnt have a spirit of the school any way yet. I was gonna sing in the glee club but I dont like Christiansan. Then I was gonna help on Students Council. But I couldn’t deside which one. And I don’t play bridge or chess yet.’ These non academic actions arnt much for all round education anyway we are told. So I spent my time in profound debates in our coffee room and so we’ll soon have politicallclubs up here. I’ve been married for some years happlily my wife works and if you choose to find out more about me ask around. The guy in our book store knows me good. When you write me back tell me about costs and living in your town. Are they high? And if you got culture there. If you take me Berttie I’ll try real hard and faithful: go to your church, your club and do as ylou say, etc. I’m average student age and I had lots of experience in the business field and I thought of going into it once.

To Hlaveor,’ The.Age$ of ‘+ t Not To Have Cdture What is a flag but a piece oJ cloth in a rectangular shape? Canada does not have an official flag. A large number of clearminded, intelligent citizens make a fuss about it. If we really wan1 a flag. we can always use the Union Jack. Don’t we pay taxe to Britain? Why shouldn’t we fly the flag of our protector? The faci that a bunch of Canadian heroes risked their lives, fortune and fame around 186:O to make Canada a self-governing, independent nation doesn’t make any difference, If these patriotic Canadians who want a flag, don’t want the Union Jack let them take the “Star Spangled Banner,’ as their symbol of Unity, Strength, -and Liberty. If the United States 03 America had not developed our trade, industry, and commerce we would, never have become the nation we are now. Let’s become part of the U.S.A. and we won’t have any further worries about flags, etc. For this privilege we will have to give up a few things such as our citizenship, our freedom, our friendly relations with all the countries in the world, and our relations to the Commonwealth, etc. What are they compared ta the benefits we will reap from “Uncle Sam”, such as municipal taxes, state taxes, federal taxes, ai1 American taxes? I think it would be much easier to forget the foolishness about a piece of cloth. What have we as Canadians to be proud of? It is a nuisance to salute a flag and see that same flag from coast to coast; a symbol of much needed unity, What type of flag should we have? Any type is better- than none! But Beaver Canuck would like to see a flag distinctly Canadian such as a golden leaf or a beaver on a red background; or other distinctly Canadian any symbol. Please, no Stars and Stripes! Beaver Canuck.

Michael Valeriote This year at !Waterloo, evidence of a contemporary revolution can be found in the college book store. This revolution, however, is not unique; it is only one step in a long serJes which forms, the evolution of man’s culture. I might name our age the “Age of Ct.& ture”, an age in which everyone has. an opportunity to be educated. I base this assumption, not on the advances in science and education, but on the popular demand for good paperback books that are now available to the general public. This trend might arise from a tendency for people to spend more of their leisure time reading books, instead of watching teievision. If this is true, there must be an increased desire in\ the average person to understand better the complex world in which he lives. No matter ho,w emphatically the proponent of visual learning asserts that “a picture is worth a thousand words,‘, television will never replace a book as the ultimate either for the transfer of knowledge or for entertainment. The beauty of a good book is found in the way that it can completely absorb one, and make him part of its setting. In this way, it becomes part of one’s own experience and is “a joy forever,,. Man’s egotism and desire for recognition drives some men to achieve great unique experiences; sbmething that very few ever accomplish. Blooks, however, can fulfil1 this selfish desire for a great adventure or a beautiful love affair. A person’s voluntary reading reflects his dreams,. and the greater his enjoyment, the more he has satisfied his needs. Passive visual experiences of most movies, on the other hand, can’t give one the privacy necessary to be involved in a great experience; the experience is not unique, if it has to be shared with millions of others. The limitations of the stage and screen also hamper and restrict the imagination, so that complete catharsis is hot possible. With a (book, one is in a world Bf his own and his feelings are not as greatly restricted, by his society’s inhibitions. Reading allows one to feel all the emotion that is repressed in a .crowded ,_? theatre. For example, take, the uneasy feeling’that one gets when he sees a movie that is “loaded with sex”. Sex in some societies does not have the unpleasant connotations that it has in ours because of puritan factors in our background. Therefore, because of our ingrained inhibitions and prejudices, this uneasy feeling is dften a feeling of guilt, and one does not really know why he disliked ’ the movie. The need for privacy, in this case, is expressed in the common saying, “Sex is not a spectator sport”. I am hoping that the better quality and increased quantity of paperbacks is a popular expression of dissatisfaction with both the limitations and ’ the poor quality of ,most of today’s television and some of today’s movies. Visual entertainment and education, of course, does have its place, and there appears to be, a growing awareness of its past failings. I don’t mean, however, the growing affliction of ADULT westerns, which, I feel, have outlived their usefulness. I refer to the new enlightened stand on censorship; this reflects a more realistic outlook on life. Let us hope that everyone takes. advantage of this new ‘revolution, and helps to make our age, truly, the “Age of Culture”.

I would like to take issue .with Mr. Johnson, the Assistant Editor of the Enginews, on his E,ditorial in the last issue- of the Cord Weekly. I was told 59 years ago, ‘that ’ The Professional Exam Passer: you couldn’t put old heads on and that saying The progessional exam passer, young shoulders, exists, and around a place such applies as well to-day’ as it did as’ Waterloo, he is usually a top 50 years ago. student, I have heard many comMr. Johnson says that he hasn’t plaints recently about the type of fought in battle under the Union student who can- only do otie thing Jack as many Canadians have at university and that thing is to done.

Clivilization, years will

so in a thousand they be talking of the British tipire. But, even now the British Empire is a’ thing of the past, and has been replaced with the Commonwealth of Nations. And this Mr. Johnson is where I think you are wrong. It is not Canadian Nationalism, or Australian Nationalism, or New Zealand Nationalism, that you should be advocating, but a much closer integration of all the Nations composing the Commonwealth of .Nations. (W&at an op’portunity for all you students.) The closer the ties that knit together the peoples of the Co-mmonwealth, the more &ure the Peace of the world will be. If ever the Commonlwedlth’ disintegrates (which the , Communists are hoping for) then (the Communists will pick you off one byone at their leisure. ’ Wit%21 regard to the idea of a Canadian Flag (why not an Australian flag: as well? ), to my mind, it is not- a Canadian Flag that is wanted but a Commonwealth Flag, a Flag that all freepeoples throughout the world can look up to and feel united under. AS to your abuse of the Monarchy Mr. Johnson, it is not so much the Queen’s person that we sing for, but the Que’en as head of the Constitution which she represents. Have you ‘ever thqught why there is still a Monarchy in Britain, after all the Monarchies that have fallen in the world? It is because they that - occupy .the Throne of Britain stand for everylthing that is pure and sim$le, straight and honest in life. The fact that they threw out l3dward VIII as they did isI clear proof that the British people have respect, only for those that uphold the rights. and dignity of the Christian faith. In conclusion, Mr. Johnson, I would tell you this. All writers, be they Political writers, Sports writers, or Edito$rs of the Enginews can do either a lot of good, or a lot of harm. (Thopsands of people who read papers, magazines, etc., think that ‘whatever they see in print must be right.) So before you write anymore Editorials, just think of these lines: “Wise people think before they speak (or write). Fools speak before- they think.” “Vic” Caretaker, Seagram’s Stadium Editor’s Note: We note with appreciation and respect, the contribution of this article.

As the 1959-60 National Hockey League schedule nears its end, the time seems appropriate for an unbiased look at what has taken place during the season, and what the play-offs hold in store. It stands to reason that the team which can defeat the defending champions will most likely become the new holders of the Stanley Cup. The Montreal Canadiens are a great hockey club, but this looks like the year that they can be ousted. 0f the league’s other five teams, only one appears to have the offensive and defensive strength necessary to overcome the Habs in a seven-game series. Care to take a guess? You’re absolutely right-the Boston Bruins. A quick glance at the Bruins tells you that they have the kind of hockey club that is capable of dumping the Canadiens. They are the only team in the NHL with scoring punch to compare with the Montrealers, and their rugged style of play will prevent the Habs from running wild offensively. Boston’s Uke Line ‘is far and away the league’s most outstanding, having thus .far fired home 77 goals and added 106 assistsa scoring record which cannot be approached by any other trio in the NHL.
