I am fully aware that this will be another abortive plea, yet something compels me to remind the student body that it is not their privilege but their duty to support the Corgphaeus. Perhaps eontemplation of the new year ahead,- perhaps the knowledge that repitition remains the best teacher - whatever the compulsion, I again urge every student to contribute some form of literary endeavour to the newspaper. It should be evident to everyone concerned that the more material one has, the more selective one can be. Of course, the extreme could lead to much confusion, but

this is hardly my worry at the moment. Better government can only be achieved through a more active interest and participation in poliLiea1 life by the voting public; juvenile delinquency can only be alleviated when more citizens make a de& termined effort to engage in the struggle against this social evil. Likewise, only by means to a deeper student interest and greater student participation in the production of their newspaper, can the Coryphaeus become a more informative, better written, university paper. Ron Hornby,





Arrangements have been made with Forde Studio to have the graduate pictures taken during the month of January. The students of St. Jerome’s are scheduled to have theirs taken from January II and 12. This means that the time from January 15 to January 30 will be reserved for the students on campus here. We ask that ALL graduates, undergrads and postgrads, consult the bulletin board on the first floor of the Physics building. Each individual is required to choose the time suitable for him. The sitting will .take half an

hour - working hours are from 10.30 - 1.00; 2.00 - 6.00; 4 days a week (Wednesday and Saturdays are excluded). A few appointments may be made in the evenings if it is absolutely impossible for anyone to make it during the day. The studio has requested that a $10.00 deposit be made at the time of the sitting, the additional sum being received at the time of receipt of the pietures. Further information and price listings can be seen on the bulletin board. Any questions concerning this matter mav be directed to Ruth Weir:

Also, I will try to evaluate the ideology of M.R.A. and its significance in an age when the fate of the world depends upon the ideas which control the hearts and minds of men.




John H. Shaw, of Hespe er, a fourth year meehan: :a1 engineering student, is the first winner of the engineering Institute of Canada prize at the University of Waterloo. The E.I.C. prizes of $50 are awarded annually at engineering schools across Canada to the student at each school on the basis of academic record and participation in engineering soeie- ’ ties on campus. The awards were established in 1930 and are given to students in the second last year of their studies. Purpose of the award is to encourage students to develop their interest in engineering soeieties’ work. Mr. Shaw begins a threemonth industrial assignment with Candaian Westinghouse Co. Ltd., in Hamilton, on December 27 and will complete his fourth year studies next spring. The award will be presented by Dr. D. T. Wright, Dean of Engineering, and by Professor A. R. LeFeuvre of the mechanical engineering department and Engineering Institute of Canada faculty advisor at the University of Waterloo.

By G. Whiz “Lady, you sure have nice legs.” This was the observation of a South African negro regarding a white woman’s legs. Granted, this is not the type of thing that is usually said in public but it is hardly reason to give the author of the words eight wacks with a cane as was decreed by a local white magistrate. I can just picture history books a hundred years hence quoting the words of that negro as “the phrase which began the South African blood bath. How very objective we are about such problems here in Canada. How much would our attitude change if we had to live with such a situation. * ‘* * * Last week at the show I saw “The Comancheros,” a bloody saga set in the plains of west Texas in 1843. The plot is fairly standard: John Wayne and the Rangers are hot after some Indians who have been causing some unpleasantries among the settlers, etc. At the showdown., the Indians suffer drastic casualties a.nd from some of their expressions it is evident that they are pertrubed over this fact. Their indignation is not completely groundless because they are being dispatched in great hordes by John and his friends who have lever action rifles . . . a type of firearm not invented until about 1865. * * * * There is a record on the “best seller” charts which. is pathetic and then again it is pathetic. It is called, “Dear Ivan.” It is sort of an open letter dramatic monologue from a typical American to a typical Russian. The theme is: “Although our governments can’t seem to agree, you and I can agree if we only had a chance, can’t we Ivan old buddy? There is one part in the speech where the artist Comes out with a piece of humour which would make the sphinx laugh. He says, “I’m an entertainer now Ivan.” * * * * There are many-of the greats who have answered that final roll call lately: Hemingway, George Crabbe, Sir Thomas Beechman, Hammarskjold and many others . , . Come to think of it, I’m not feeling too well myself.

SPORTS PARADE Since the last publication of the Coryphaeus, the Warriors have played four games winning two and losing two to bring their record to 5 wins and 2 losses with a 1-2 record in league play. In their first league game at home, the Warriors lost to Assumption “Lancers” by a score of +94-92 in overtime. Dee. 22 they travelled to Buffalo to win over Erie Tech. “Kats” by a 69-61 count. Returning after’ the vacation on Jan. 4, the Warriors downed Carleton University 86-58. In Windsor, they again lost to Assumption .by 69-54. This weekend, they take on the Queen’s Gaels at the K-W Auditorium on Friday night.

R. G. Stanton,








No. The examination is an important part of the doculentation for the candidates’ grades. As such it should be stained by the university. It is true that you can learn a It from the mistakes you made in the paper, but you don’t sually need the paper to tell you where you went wrong. N. C. Lind ’ Civ. En;. *





It is childish to squabble over a few questionable marks n an exam paper. If papers were returned we would be Ireed to revert to the Elementary School approach of issecting the paper, bit by bit, exploiting and manipulating rivia into possible extra rewards. The mind of a University scholar is flexible and imagintive and thus the methods of answering various questions rould be profuse. Therefore originality and freshness of pproach are to be considered when marking a paper. It rould be degrading for a professor to have his developed 3eling and acute judgment in his particular subject torn 3 shreds by mark-seeking students. Of course, now, any result noticeably inconsistant with revious results in this and other similar subjects is looked lto and a fair decision is made. Thus I feel that it would minimize anguish on both the art of the student and faculty by not returning final xamination papers. David Rumpel, 3A Eng.



Again, we issue our plea! If anyone has an interesting photo (we shan’t ‘go into details) of anyone on campus - please turn it over to the yearbook staff. Surely, someone took some pictures the night of the formal!

papers be returned

* * * * Yes, with one proviso. In favour of this proposal, I can ?e two arguments: 1. A student would ge benefit from writing an xam if he could reread the paper, and see his errors nd misconceptions. 2. Occasionally, a student is unhappy about the grade ssigned, and should have an opportunity to either satisfy imself that the grade was deserved, or obtain a rereading f the paper. The only fly in the ointment occurs in (2), and is due to hose students, of dubious maturity, who are prepared to uibble for hours over one or two marks, generally unearned. n order to protect the marker from these terrors, it is ecessary to supply some discouragement. For example, one could impose a fee, to be paid for aving a paper reread. Five dollars might be enough to iscourage the quibblers, and yet be no serious obstacle to he student who believed himself to be seriously wronged. I certainly feel that the extra work involved in returning apers would be justified, particularly because clerical rrors, omissions, and simple prejudice can cause unfair rades to be assigned. Incidentally, at Waterloo, a paper assigned a failing rade is automatically reread, so the whole issue is not as urning as we might think. Erie Manning,

ihould student examination hey are marked?


The advent of a new term see on campus 81 pieces of fresh cannon fodder. Who are these misguided and blighted souls who walk among us? They are bright eyed young optimists who hope to graduate as engineers one twentieth of a century from now. After a sneak preview of theinitiation programme, it would seem that the conveners did not give it too much thought but this is just a feint to throw our wooly little freshmen off balance. The programme will almost be over by the time you read this so I hope you pink cheeked mockeries to manhood have been enjoying yourselves. You are expected to be at the dance tonight so if you have not selected a date from the numberless hordes of beautiful girls on campus, we urge you . . to do so at your earliest convenience. More could be said about the girls but my present mood of sarcasm is bordering on the slanderous so I will desist. We trust that after the initiation you will be happy as a member of our little community, so busy, so full of spirit and activities. S. Arcasm, Eng. II
