Now that ‘the enemy’ is testing nuclear bombs in the atmosphere, we hear and read a great deal of the terrible dangers the tests present to the world. There is no doubt that these dangers are real, regardless of the identity of the experimenter, however, it is difficult to glean from the myriad of reports, comments and opinions the precise nature and relative importance of these dangers. In an attempt to evaluate the effects of nuclear bomb testing on mankind we should consider first the products of an atmospheric nuclear explosion. They are (1) air blast (2) thermal radiation and (3) nuclear radiation (both initial and secondary).

This is the official coat of arms, crest. Supporters and motto are ready but unfortunately could not be secured before press time.

Summary of underlying reasons for the choice of prosposed Unietersitv Arms J

The University colours are gold, black, and white, and although not essential, it seemed convenient to incorporate all three in a shield design. The Committee had expressed the opinion that our shield should be simple, bold, “traditional,” easily reproduced, capable of smallscale representation without loss of detail, and be readily distinguished from other Canadian university shields. Furthermore the Committee showed little enthusiasm for such symbols as: book, lamp, torch, beavers, Conestoga wagon. In an effort to meet these general conditions the following design elements emerged : -1. A gold shield with black qnd white chevron.


This combination allows the use of all three of the University colours, and differs from the shelds of major Canadian universities. The final design, i.e., a black chevron surmounted by a narrower silver (white) chevron happens to be the shield division used by only one of the thousand or so shields described in Burkes Peerage (1917) - and it is that of Kitchener



(Kitehener’s shield is red, a white chevron surmounted by a blue chevron, between three bustards, etc.) 2. lions.




The search for suitable charges for the shield led to a concept proposed by Professor Stanton at the Committee’s first meeting, viz., that “Waterloo” has only one reference in the minds of most people the world over, and this is the great Battle of Waterloo in 1815, at which the Duke of Wellington defeated the Emperor Napoleon. Waterloo County and adjacent Wellington County as well as the present City of Waterloo were named in

honour of that event. The University of Waterloo thus perpetuates in its name the reference to Wellington’s voetory. The arms of Wellington display, in part, a red rampant lion on a gold field. Thus the red rampant lion was adopted as a possible symbol for the University shield. I In British and European heraldry the rampant lion is of course fairly Common it was used to symbolize courage, strength and other equally noble qualities. The Arms of Scotland also show a red rampant lion on a gold field. Thus although the eonneetion with Wellington is interesting, it would be quite in order to adopt a rampant lion as our symbol as has been done by many other families and institutions. The lion is certainly not a local beast in northern Europe! 3. Trillium leaves. The

with our foods and the air we breath; thence they are injested. The human body has a special affinity for these particular elements and concentrates iodine in the thyroid, cesium in muscular tissue, strontium in bones and of course carbon throughout the body. From these locations, then, these radioactive isotopes emit higtbli ionising gamma-rays beta-particles. The effect of ionising atoms of the body cells is sometimes only one of slight damage, damage which is not so serious that the cell cannot continue its function. Often, however, the cell will be completely disrupted. It will then cease to function, and will later be replaced. Under very intense doses of radiation the replacement rate may be exceeded by the death rate, so that all body functions would soon cease and death would follow shortly. Such a situation is quite unlikely in areas remote from testing locations and should be considered under the topic of effects of nuclear warfare. Of prime importance to us here is the fact that on rare occasions that portion of a cell which controls its reproductive rate will be damaged so that the cell begins to reproduce in an uncontrolled manner. In this way various types of cancer are initiated. In addition to this increase in internal radiation level, the testing carried out up to 1958 raised the level external to our bodies from 0.110 to 0.12 roentgen per year. Now the effect of this 10% increase on the human body is to cause approximately IO ionization events per body cell per year. Clearly the probability of cancer to the individual is increased. An even more important effect is this increased radiaCont’d.

SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO ATTEND UNIVERSITY FOR A DAY This Saturday, November 4, will be a very special day in the lives of 165 local students in,Grades 12 and 13. From 9.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., these students will be attending a seminar on university life at the University of Waterloo. Choosing a university course is one of life’s most important decisions for the eollegebound secondary school student. Equally as important is the challenge of making the adjustment from high school student to university undergraduate. The guidance counsellors of the secondary schools in the Kitehener-Waterloo area, with the co-operation of the University of Waterloo, have arranged this day-long seminar to help the students to find the answers to these problems. In the morning, they will learn what a university is

and is not, and find out how to apply and enroll. They will listen to undergraduate students explain freshman pitfalls. After being entertained at a “Fun with Physics” lecture, they will be given the opportunity to enter into discussions with faculty advisors - Arts, Science, and Engineering. After lunch with university students, they will tour the campus as guests of a group of undergraduates. In the afternoon, each student will attend two leetures by university faculty members. A variety of leetures will be offered to choose from, according to individual academic interests. On Saturday, November 11, these students will be guests at the Waterloo-MeMaster football game. Tiekets will be distributed at the seminar.

r I lay down last Sunday night in a dark and quiet room and thought deeply. Uninterrupted thought is a stimulating and somewhat frightening experience. I thought about the world and *the .position ;ime find ourselves i,n today.. It is frustrating to be mature enough to comprehend the situation ’ in the world yet to be completely powerless to change it. What can individuals do where governments fail? ‘Life goes on and no one thinks of the brink. If one does think of it, then it ,is usually a momentary and fleeting thing, a depression, which can be dispelled by the simplest of diversions. It is rather ridiculous to speak of being guaranteed twenty years of further existence when at any moment -an every day variable might snuff it out. But I ask you to @asp the idea I-am trying to convey, the idea of twenty “guaranteed” years for our generation. The will to live is strong in anyone and while in twenty years we may have had our stay 1 of execution, our children will then be raising their voice in a similar. They too will want their chance at life and they, like us’ now, will probably place, the blame at the feet of ,’ L’ their governments. It is a vicious cycle but vicious as it is, II , the only alternative seems to be a war of complete attrition. I used to find consolation in history books. Looking at 1 .past conflicts between men I would imagine that those people probably thought that theirs was the war to end all wars, ‘/I a war which would destroy the world. The world always ., survived in the history book wars and I found consolation in this fact; Like Hitler, like. Napoleon, like. Attila the ‘Russian threat will roar a challenge and tKen fade off into nothing . . . this I kept telling myself. Thought, deep and silent has battered and destroyed this pillar of consolation. : ..The next war will never make the history books, the end, . whether quick or lingering, is inevitable. You may think this is an extremely trite topic these days and I agree with you, it is. “Just another depressive sounding off” you might say, “Just another ‘Ban the bomber’ mumb~ling in his beard.” The real tragedy of this can be brought home to the reader by a simple experiment. Lie down in a dark quiet room, concentrate on it, let the weight of fear press heavily on you, conjur up scenes of horror and suffering, $ let them seep into you and thesend result will be the same in almost every ease . . . you simply cannot bring- yourself to *take the situation seriously.

I happened to hear Al Jolson sing one of his best known songs on the radio. I attempted to project myself back into his era and find reasons for his popularity. After pondering the pros and cons, I concluded that his fame was a fluke. Times change. Yesterday he was the greatest singer on the air and today, he couldn’t be a headliner at the Moosonee Folk Festival. Apart from the fact that the man is dead, he still couldn’t make it. You know what I mean.





I have sung it fast %and slow. I have sung it with a haunting lilt. I have bellowed out the finish in a thunderous crescendo but it matters not which way I do it, the second last line of our new school song will not work - for me at least. The only way it can work is to have the singer slur his lyrics in the true Sinatra fashion. Never let it be said that I am the one who fired the torpedo which sunk this fair song, I advocate that we give it every chance at the game th& &$urday. That second last line is a dandy though, . *,* * * Africa is the Negro’s continent. People who believe otherwise simply will not regard the writing on the wall. The whites in Africa are holding to an old and dated colonial belief that a drop of milk in a gallon of ink will turn the ink white. * * * * It has been almost a week now and I am still undecided whether or not I was fortunate in seeing the first presentation of the film society “Hiroshima Mon Amour.” To write a penetrating and meaningful review of such a film is beyond my capabilities. It was so deep, so intense, so charged with a pathetic desperate atmosphere that I really can’t say whether I enjoyed it or not. It was like my first Chinese food dinner, I felt that I disliked it but wanted to go back for more. For the first twenty or thirty minutes I thought “Here is something which will really nail this atomic thing down, something which will jar the scientists and politicians back to reality.” After some shocking scenes, the “Hiroshima” aspect was played down and the “Mon Amour” came to the fore. In this part, I was looking for an allegory so deep that I doubt if it ever did exist.





Harking back to an old theme, I would say that the good old U. of W. is still unchanged. The great dark cloud of Apathy which engulfed us last year has not blown away. One would think that a larger enrollment might have dispelled it to some degree but instead the cloud has thickened - As far as I ca.n make out, the freshmen of this year are on a par with last year’s bunch - stagnant. Name calling is childish you say but when you realize that no one is about to protest, it can be rather fun. * * * * I have heard of dissension in the ranks and fifth column efforts but this is a dandy. The cheerleaders, one in particular is putting forth her own school cheering song in what can only be viewed as direct competition to the present “song”. Say, I’m really beating that poor song into the ground. I apologize. Well anyhow, back to the cheerleader’s entry, brace yourselves, here it is. “Come on get wise you guys We are from Waterloo We’ve got a winning team We’ll walk right over you The Engineers are here The Arts and Science too So give a great big cheer For the U. of W. This is sung to the tune of M’Lord and when you examine it hum it and sing it you will see that it is not without merit. Stop the presses, we have another entry for a school song. Waterloo

Complimenting the Warriors football win over O.A.C. ; the Warriors rugger team recorded their first win .of the ’ I current. season over Western’s Mustarigs by defeating them by 11 to 3. Before a changing crowd of spectators en route to the *\ football game the team gave a good performance. of hard f working forward, play combined with neat back field clicking which the Mustangs found just too mu&h. The scoring commenced in the first half when from- a penalty kick for Warriors in’ centrefield 0 Connor started a passing movement to Current who drew the defence and sent Ridgewell ’ on the wing fora dazzling 40 yard run down the touchline. He was tackled almost on the line but his momentum carried w ‘, him over for the try (3 points). A, fine kick by Ray. Skyrme put the Warriors in a 5-O lead. , Early in the second half a loose ball from a rue on the Mustang’s 10 yard line was kicked into their end zone and 4 : was pounced upon by Serumhalf Paul Copeland to increase the Warrior lead by 8-O. The convert was not made good. Mustangs retaliated by a try from a forward rush which also was unconverted. The Warriors last score was a classic “ by Ray Skyrme, the new centre. From a backfield passing movement he nipped through the defence, Lightly kicked the ball over the fullback’s head and burst through to 1t . recover and make the touchdown. The try was unconverted. The game ended with the Mustangs making a strong bid , for extra points but the score.remained 11-3 for the Warriors. The Rugger fixture this weekend has ,not been finalized on going to press.

ENl,lNEEUN6 Stk WTHER - THE’ ENGINEWS . ME:ITlNt or perhaps the Engineers’. The meeting of the Engin-

eering Society, was held on Tuesday, October 31st. R,atifixation of the proceedings of the previous meetings was again held over because a quorum was not present. Dave Rumpel, ’ Student Council representative, reported, that the Student Council wtis issuing university Christmas cards; he questioned the action the Engineering Society had taken concerning its own cards. He also requested assistance from the Engineering Society members to help build a’ float representing the University of Waterloo in the float parade to be held on’ November 25th in the Twin cities. Also needed are sixtyfive students to act asclowns on the same day. % , The question of the Christmas cards was; raised when it ,was discovered that the ’ Engineering Society has about 150 dozen cards already bought and the sale of these would be interfered with by the University cards, It was decided that no objection would be raised against the Student Council cards and the sale of the Society cards would be left to the discretion of the Second VicePresident. The Treasurer’s report showed approximately $425 on hand. It was suggested a petty cash fund be set up. Twenty dollars was set aside for this. The. Grey and Gold will not be holding any danees until perhaps the 25th of November. This is because the Gym has been reserved for dances by other societies. Question of a tea dance after the McMaster i Waterloo football game was raised at this tjme. It was pointed out that we had received. the same’courtesies at MeMaster. A committee under the direction of Ron Walker was set up to look into the use of our electrical equipment at Seagram Gym and also the charges of the use of ]the Gym. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, November 7th, at 5,.10 p.m. ’ The promised constitution, of which there will soon be a precis in the paper, will be presented for acceptance on November 21st. ’ ’

The Enginews, forerunner of the Corgphaeus, became part of the Corgphaeus when the Arts and Science Facul-. ties came to campus. The name *was retained for the engineering news section partly for sentimental re sons and partly in hopes t P at engineering students /would rally under a flag. The flag is now at half mast. Most of the engineering students at Waterloo ’ have about as much constructive interest in school life as Lady Godiva ‘in her clothes. This has-been shown by the lack of attendance at recent Engineering Society meetings. The only times I have yet seen the engineers sit up with interest was every time a new girl passed by and at the open meeting last year which was to discuss a proposed party for students who had been active in school aetivities. It turned into a name calling row with those who had done absolutely nothing resenting the possibility of reward for those who had done some work. I guess I am now becoming exactly what I set out to condemn - someone ,who complains and offers onlv suggestions. That is true bu?, I am taking a little action by symbolicaliy burying Engin;

ews. What few items of interest; there are to engineering students will still appear on this page but the name’will be lacking “Doomed by starvation to the unknown.” The name will never reapfiear in the Corvphaeus which is a scholol and not a faculty newspaper. This means mainly that -all writings of the Engineering faculty must approach the same calibre as each of the other faculties. This is a good thing beCause, although I engineering students tend to be very narrow minded, the potential for good writing is present and need only be brought forth by proper means (vitamins, truth serum, ,a sharp kick, solutions of ethanol, etc.) This can be’ summed up by our favourite formula: I=MR2 Where I . inertial drag of eng& eering students M mass of engineer’s head (how it feels, usually).

top scientific jobs to go around, so we lose most of our top people. Canadians are very well accepted in the U.S. I think this is because such a small percentage of our students do go on that the ones who do are usually good ones. There are a lot of Canadians in top jobs in U.S. industry. It’s almost easier for a Canadian scientist to get a job down there than it is for an American citizen. If the U.S. ever closed their borders to Canadians, we would have a suplus of good people - we *wouldn’t know what ,to do with them! Here you don’t see- anything in the papers saying there is a shortage of engineers, whereas you do in the States.” Dr. Berman feels that Canadian universities are more regimented here than in the States; that is, that we keep a stricter adherence to a certain, fixed curricula. “In fact most Canadian universities offer the same material in their lectures. In the U.S., the courses you take depends on the university you go to. There are, of course, disadvantages to this, but one advantage is that in the U.S. people with the same’degree have taken different sets of courses and you

therefore get people with different outlooks on life. Canadian opinions are very much the same -, you can pretty well guess what the general Canadian opinion will be on a topic. You couldn’t say this as easily about graduates in the U.S. The courses here haven% changed much - they are taking the same thing in Toronto as I took.” Later, returning to the topic of universities, and more particularly Waterloo, he added, “All that I have said on Canadian universities in general, doesn’t apply to’ Waterloo. Waterloo\won’t be just another Canadian university. We’ve already seen this in the development of the Co-operative Engineering course. Our courses in Science are more modernized because we started from scratch. Already our courses are better than those of any other Canadian university’. I think our school is better than Toronto.” ’ . Science may prove to run in Dr. Berman’s family. The other day one of his three sons told him he was going to build a machine that could make anything he wanted. This is the kind of scientist our future could use!
