,;GREEN AND GOLD For those of you who do not read bulletin boards or listen to gossip but rather put your faith in such editions as this we take pleasure in an nouncing that there will be a “Weekend” this term. This can only mean that for two days in the near future the students are engineering going to rescind all preten tions of becoming sane adult and do what comes naturally From the dark recesses of wherever the Engineering Society offices are now located that the weekend of July 27 and 28 will be the time of the Grey and Gold Weekend of 1962. Although the traditional “bigger and better than ever’r theme is becoming an elusive entity, the committee assure us that we “haven’t seen it all yet”. This Weekend “rolls” on on Saturday morning with the second-annual Motor Rally to be run through the surrounding district. We are told that, Phil Thomas himself is plotting the course and to say it will be a “Pip” would be no overestimation. The participants will leave, the starting point beginning at 9:30 a.m. sharp and assuming that they can somehow i decipher the instructions written in braille, we understand, especially for engineers -they will finish about noon. Last year’s champs, Gunnars Heissler and George Dalbergs are out to prove that their fYi.rst success was no accident and if the opposition is the same “who’s to worry”. The next attraction is to be the so called “Field-Day” at Forwells. The fuq and frolics are to begin at 1: 30 and will continue to about 4:30. This should enable all engineers present to rush home and spend 3 hours attaining the image of a socially-minded student, all semblance of which will disappear by about 9: 15 that evening. Admission to the field day will be free for the engineer and his date with the presentation of a student ID card. There will be refreshments available at a price, and it is rumoured that .Tom Clarkson will have some more of those “home -grown” watermelon$ that were such a hit last year+

According to Rex Smith who is organizing the affair, the events include log-rolling, water-jousting, tug-o-war and a relay race over an obstacle course. The various academic years will vie for the Society Bowl emblematic of, athletic supremacy. In spite of the popular contention that an engineer’s muscles are concentrated above his shoulders, there will undoubtedly be some interesttirg exhibitions of strength and skill. I can even now picture a well-tanned specimen poised gracefully in a canoe with a - - - oh well, at least he had on his swimming suit. The day and the Weekend will come to a fitting climax Saturday evening with the social highlight of the term, the Grey and Gold Ball. This event is a semi-formal affair and will be staged at the Coronet Motor Hotel beginning at 9:00 p.m. We are advised that tickets are as scarce as hall engineers in a study and that if you want one you should contact your class rep immediately. Due to the short term the people usually in volved, at this time, with labouriously transforming Seagram’s Gym into a gala arena have been deprived of this task. If a past performance is any indication the Coronet ballroom will lend itself excellently as a substitute. Dancing will be from 9:00 until Midnight. During intermission the Society Bowl, Golfing Trophy and Motor Rally Trophy will be presented with Miss Engineer of pre1962, Miss siding over the ceremonies At midnight the “Weekend’ for 1962 will be officially over although more obscure’ sur roundings may house a continuation of festivities. As is necessarily the case, a great deal of organizational effort must be forthcoming, Anyone wishing to lend his services will be welcomed by Mr. Thomas and his aides. We take this opportunity to extend our best wishes to John Makarchuk, Phil Thomas and the Engineering Society for the coming weekend and extend our sincere thanks to those concerned tiith the many phases of planning and preparation. will tour the University o Waterloo campus so you had better get your English French dictionaries as we un derstand they speak little or no English.

Mr. Barber and the writer attended the annual conference of the University Counselling and Placement Association at McMaster University from June 13th to 15th, 1962. One verv interest& talk was ,prese&d by the l&sonnel Officer of oni of the larger ,:Companies. He described how his company treats the new graduate. This Personnel officer has found in dealing with students over the last fifteen years that some have no definite idea of what they really wish to do; many have had no industrial experience and a number have -fanciful ideas of what they might do. The objective of this company is to trv to Dresent to the new graduatk, i picture of the world of work and the opportunities in the operations of their company. Their proceedure is: (1) to try to interpret from interviews with the student what work he is interested in and capable of doing. (2) to increase hi% interest various bv tours to their piants and through talks and discussions of industrial activity. (3) by subjecting him to actual work conditions and observing his performance. Wi: feel that we can assist the student to DreDare for this proceedure by * h&ng industrial companies outline a training program. Such an outline will help the student realize what lies ahead. Many comipanies have prepared programs and a number are now being prepared. When the program outline is completed and approved by the company and the University, a copy is placed with the company literature in the library files. Make sure you look for such an outline-when you are reviewing company litkrature. It will assist you in making the proper decision. M. S. Stevens, P.Eng., Dept. of Co-ordination and Placement.

FROM THE CONVENOR m m n

This summer, as in the past five, the Engineers have set aside a \;veekend for fun and frolic. This summer, however the weekend has been planned for the 28th of July, earlier than usual because of the short term. It is hoped that the response will be as great as ever despite the short term. The programme this sumprogram for the Engineering Weekend. This is as follows: Friday Evening: Wiener Roast at Blue Springs at 8:30 p.m., costing 50~. per person. Saturday Morning: Motor Rally with the time and place of assembly to be announced. Saturday Afternoon: Water field day at Forwells with a program much like that of last year but with slight variations. Students will be admitted on their student’s card with the Engineering Society paying Saturday Evening: “The Grey and Gold Ball” at the Coronet Motor Hotel. Bar service will be supplied. Directory representative, Art Harris, reported that the directories, in the form of “a sharp little book”, would be out on the 27th of July. Mike McBimie moved that the meeting adjourn. This was

mer is identical, to that of last year. It includes: a Friday night wiener roast, held at Blue Springs off Highway 7, the second annual motor rally run in the district surrounding the Twin Cities, water frolics at Forwells, and of course the Grey and Gold Ball in the ball room of the Coronet Motor Hotel. An invitation is extended to all students, faculty and staff who wish to participate in all events and activities for the added success of the Weekend. Special thanks is due Rex Smith who is in charge of the Saturday afternoon water frolics and John Jurychuk who is in charge of the wiener roast Friday night. Also thanks to all those people helping with the motor rally and the dance. P. H. Thomas 1 st Vice-President Engineering Society. seconded by Dave Ridley. Jim Wilson, Secretary, Engineering Society.

Move University Bookstore We have a bright new book store. Previously located in a cramped room of the Math. and Physics Building, the bookstore has been moved to its new location in the Engineering Building with 3,800 square feet of space. In keeping with this expansion, the stock of books, periodicals and newspapers is being enlarged. By September, the bookstore will have a collection of more than 1500 paperback volumes and it will start to stock magazines which will interest the students. In addition there is a separate room especially segregated for about 15,000 hardcovered books. Most of these will be texts for courses being given as the university curriculum.

ENGINEERING SOCIETY STORE The Engineering Society Store has settled down to the regular routine after being moved into its new location in Annex 1. Hours the store will be open are from 12:00 noon to 1:00 and 4:30 to 500 each weekday. There are only a few summer Engineers’ jackets remaining. It is doubtful that more will be ordered because a University design may be adopted shortly. Since the University winter jacket design has not been finalized as yet, the present design will continue for this fall. On the subject of clothing, it has been found that the sweat shirts shrink after washing. For this reason we suggest you buy one size larger than normal in these items. There are used text-books available for Pre-eng. and Year 1 students. More advanced texts will find a ready market and any student wishing to dispose of his will be welcomed It has been decided to discontinue the sale of sports equipment in the Store. All such equipment now in stock is being sold at cost. e B-term exam papers (September 1961) are now available, As soon as those from June of 1962 are available they will be added to the list. (probably in three weeks) The following is a list of items now available in the Store: Grey Winter Jackets ....... ........ .......... ......... ....... . ........ . ........ ......... $17.X .25 Numbers (for jackets) ........... ........ ......... ....... .......... ......... .......... .......

FIRSTENGINEERSWAMER RECREATIONAL PROGRAM 1. Tennis GRADUATE 5 On Saturday, July 7, the University of Waterloo held its fourth, and most important convocation to date. Sixtyfour engineering students Became the first graduates to receive the degree of Bachelor of Applied Science at the University. These are the students who were among the first to enrol in the University of Waterloo’s Co-operative Engineering program. When they enrolled, the University had no background in engineering education, only a handful of faculty members, limited classroom and laboratory space and very few books. In fact, Waterloo did not even possess a university charter. The University is now fully accredited and recognized. The engineering enrolment, which will top 1,000 this fall, is one of the largest in Canada and ever since the program began, industry has responded by employing the students for their training terms. Campus development to date represents an investment of $10 million, providing the most modern facilities available. The faculty has grown to 130 members and degree programs in Arts, Science and graduate studies, conducted on conventional university timetables, are also in full operation. Professor Gordon Patterson, Director of the Institute of Aerophysics, University of Toronto, delivered the Convocation address. He urged engineers to beware of “the over-cautious mind that advises that all fact5 be known before a venture car proceed.” “Institution is an importanl factor in human life and engineers must learn to apprec iate it.” “Engineers must continue their study habits and remair abreast of their fields, and thel will need the co-operation oj their employers,” he said. Sharing honors with the young graduates were a trio of men who were awarded the honorary Doctor of Science degree in recognition of their contributions to the engineering profession. They were: D.r. Otto Holden, retired Chief Engineer of Ontario Hydro; Dr. H. R. Lyle Streight, distinguished chemical engineer with DuPont of Canada Ltd., and Professor Gordon Patterson who delivered the convocation address, R. Hamilton.
