NRC Scholarshipsto Two Wat. Students It was announced last week that two students from the U. of W. have been awarded National Research Council of Canada grants to carry on graduate work. The two Waterloo engineers to receive these grants are William C. Lennox of Midland, and Nick S. Pocrnic of Delhi. Bill Lennox is now in Fifth year Engineering Physics and received a $2,000 grant for research in Mathematics. Nick Pocrnic, who is in Fifth year Chemical Engineering, will carry on research in that field with the aid of a grant of $2,000. Both Bill and Nick will study here in Waterloo.

INDIANAMEMORIAL UNION' A CAMPUS CENTRE The Memorial Union of Indiana State University, Bloomington, Indiana, serves a dual purpose. It not only seeks to “serve the students in broadening their learning experiences through activities”, but also to provide “facilities for conferences and institutes which promote and continue work on adult education and development.” The union, which serves the 33,000 students at Indiana University is large and spacious and contains some of the very latest conveniences in its design - including escalator service to all floors, modern cafeteria service, a large dining hall, 200 guest rooms and air-conditioned automatic bowling lanes. The Union was built without the use of any government aid and is self-supporting and self-liquidating. The guest rooms are all air-conditioned and each has taped music and radio service. The bookstore, which occupies three floors of the building, is a self-service type store, and contains textbooks, trade books, supplies, souvenirs, etc., along with photo and art supplies. In the Union are also several Businesses of a commercial nature - a Barber Shop, Beauty Salon, Newsstand, a Stationer’s Shop, a Retail Bakery, and a Post Office. Recreation facilities include billiards, bowling, ping-pong, shuffleboard, crafts, photography, square dancing and social dancing on the terrace, and outdoor recreation at the Beechwood Heights centre. The Union has a large parking lot with attendants and also has some permanent housing for Graduate Students, Faculty and Staff. As we said in a previous article, if you have any ideas or questions, drop us a line in the student mail box outside the Registrar’s office. Lewis Taylor, Sec. -Treas. Campus Centre

The recent elections to choose a Students Council President have resulted in the selection of John Braun (Science II) as the successful candidate. The one other candidate who also contested the position was Dave Smith (Science II). Mary Beth Cunningham (Arts I) was chosen Vice-President by acclamation. The following statement was obtained from John Braun after the election: “Taking this opportunity, I would like to extend my thanks to all students who supported me in the elections for Students Council President. I shall try not to betray your confidence. To Dave Smith I extend my appreciation for a well run campaign and my invitation to him to again serve on Students Council. At this same time, my special expression of gratitude goes out to Malcolm Cock, Jerome Miller, Gerald Wolfe and Bill McKee, who made special contributions to my campaign. Once again, thank you! And to those who are facing exams I extend my best wishes.” Voting took place in two stages. The Winter-Summer Engineering students, St. Jerome’s College students and the Arts and Science students voted on March 16, 1962, Students of the SpringFall Engineering quarter east their ballots on April 6, 1962, shortly after their return to campus. Of the approximate 1250 undergraduate students pre,sently registered at The University of Waterloo, only 400 ballots were east in this election. St. Jerome’s participation ranked the highest with some 90% of the students voting. Arts and Science participation was second highest having had 70% of the eligible students casting ballots. Engineering students showed their keen interest with some 25% of both quarters taking part in the ballot casting. Other recent elections held on campus have resulted in Co&d. on Page ,Z

Verily, I say unto ye, marry not an engineer; For an engineer is a strange being and possessed of many evils. Yea, he speaketh always in parables which he calleth ‘formulae, He wieldeth a big stick which he calleth a slide rule, and he hath%nly one bible, a hand book. He thinketh only of strains and stresses, and without end of thermodynamics. He showeth always a serious aspect and seemeth not to know how to smile. He picketh his se&t in a car by the springs thereof and not -by the damsels. Neither does he know a waterfall except by its horse power, nor sunset except that he must turn on the light, nor a damsel except by her weight. Always he carrieth his books with him, and he entertaineth his sweetheart with steam tables. Verily, though his damsel expecteth chocolates when he calleth, she openeth the package to discover samples of iron ores. Yea, he holdeth her hand but to measure the friction thereof, and kisseth her only to test the viscosity of her lips, for in his there shineth a far away look that is netiher love nor a longing look - rather a vain attempt to recall formulae. Even as a boy he pulleth a girl’s hair but to test its elasticity; But as a man he deviseth different devices. For he counteth the,vibrations of her heartstrings And seek&h to ,pursue his scientific investigations. Even his own heart flutterings he counteth as a measure of fluct,uation, And enseribeth his passion as a formula, And his marriage is a simultaneous equation involving two unknowns And yielding diverse results. Verily, I say unto ye, marry not an engineer. * * * * THE CAUTIOUS SELDOM ERR gotke;oy. “Mother, do they have skyscrapers in heaven? : “No, dear, it takes engineers to build skyscrapers. l

Association and use the title Professional Engineer (P. Eng.) without writing the APE0 examinations. The U. of W. applied for recognition last summer and during the winter a visiting committee came to the campus to discuss the curriculum with the faculty and inspect the teaching laboratories. As a result, our engineers may join and become “one of the boys” upon graduation.

The Editor, The Coyphaeus,

Dear Sir: May I extend my personal congratulations to John Braun on his election as Students Council President for 1962-63. John’s term in office will be successful only if he has the support of the whole Student Body. We have asked John to do a job for us so let’s get behind him and give him the support he needs. There are several positions to be filled by appointment on next year’s Executive. The bulletin boards contain information regarding these. Let’s have applications for all of these positions so that the 62-63 Students Council may begin operations with a complete Executive. Yours truly, Paul M. Koch, Students
