A general meeting of the Engineering Faculty students was held last monday for the purpose of promoting interest among the engineers towards the forthcoming Students’ Council Election. Dick Van Veldhuisen, Acting President for the Pro-Tern Students’ Council, announced for the record that he was going to run for President and win. He said he will manage Student Government more efficiently by assigning only one job for each member. He considers academic studies to be of prime importance and feels that certain committees should be discontinued if sufficient council members are not found. A question period was opened with Dick Van Veldhuisen, Claude Brodeur, Dave Young. and Dr. Batke on The Lutheran University have dethe panel. Various suggestions were cided not to let the freshman class vote in the coming election. made to improve affairs by expandThe story is much the same up ing Students’ Council and publicizing there is it is down here.

Engineers traditionally do not serve in any great degree on Students’ Council because of their Co-op plan. At least this was the opinion expressed at an open meeting of the Engineering Society on Monday. But Dr.’ Batke pointed out that the Engineering Society runs quite successfully and asked why a similar continuity

$1200 Budget

f or Campus


Does your club need money to cover the costs of operations and programmes? Then, your budget must be submitted to the Board of Student Activities before October 15. The Board has budgeted $1200 to be allocated among the various campus clubs and organizations. The deadline will not be changed.

NEW ARTS BUILDING Work will begin shortly on a twosection Arts Building which will provide additional classroom, geography lab and office facilities in time for the 196566 term. , Tenders for the new $2.250,000 building were opened as this issue of the Coryphaeus came off the press. The Arts Building project along with the student village complex means that more than $5% million

in new construction projects will be in process during the next year. This matches the expansion pace of the past year, in which the Arts Library and Chemistry and Biology Building are nearing completion. The new 97,000 sq. ft. three storey Arts Building will be built in two sections connected by a tunnel. A tunnel will also connect the building to the present Arts Building.


Engineers on

One section of the building will contain geography laboratories and 80 faculty offices. The other section will contain four amphitheatres and 10 classrooms. Facilities for closed circuit television will be incorporated into the classroom wing. When completed, the two wings will blend architecturally with the present Arts Building and the Arts Library to form an Arts quadrangle.



could not be achieved for engineers on student council. The answer was that it could. During the question period at this strategy meeting it became apparent that many people were deeply interested in student government. Indeed, Dick Van Veldhuisen announced his candidacy for President. The Engineers are starting to take a serious interest in their responsibiities as students. How about it, Arts and Science?

University Design

Revenge glinting in their yes, four students entered the Engineering Building late one evening. Two stationed themselves outside the bookstore as lookouts. Another loitered behind in the please-deposit-briefcases -here area. The remaining fellow casually entered, stalled by leafing through a magazine, then sauntered up to the cashier to buy a five cent stamp with his two dollar bill. Meanwhile a U of W mug was dextrously and swiftly removed from display by one of the efficient members of this daring quartet. It was quickly concealed in a briefcase, and the fearless foursome retired to then Engineering Common Room, gloating over their spoil and chanting “Sad news for the good guys; good news for the bad guys!” and similar expressions of victory. Thus ends another episode in the eternal saga of students vs. bookstore. This story is true-only the names have been changed to protect mugs.

Applications will now be accepted University Service Committee.

Centre Influential in

Expo 67-

Canada’s first university-level design institute became a reality this summer with the formation of the Institute of Design at the University of Waterloo. The institute is an outgrowth of the Design Studies Group established by the Faculty of Engineering two years ago. Already the institute is involved in two exciting new projects - two of the theme buildings for Expo ‘67. The Canadian World exposition to be held in Montreal. Purpose of the institute is to undertake fundamental research related to design and to carry out individual design projects. Membership in the institute will include professional deCo&d. on Page 4

of Chairman,


Responsibilities of the position include co-ordination of the various working sub-committees e.g. United Nations Week, Share Campaign, Treasure Van, and programmes in co-operation with overseas students. The Chairman is an appointee of Students’ Council and as such is responsible to Council for all programmes in such matters as budgets, programme development, and policy development. As W.U.S.C. is a national and international organization as well as a local one, the Chairman must be prepared to be involved in conferences and organization at these levels. Interested

CUS Conference This is the first of a series of letters written to the students of the University of Waterloo from Diana Macri and Judi Wright while at the XXIUII National Congress of the Canadian Union of Students held at York University, Toronto, from September 10

A Vote for Jazz Sir: In response to a column entitled “Jazz! Man,” I am writing to express my great desire that concerts be continued periodically in the University. A fair representation of all music forms is obviously necessary. The University of Waterloo would surely benefit from a well rounded program. Just think: the TSO, Hart House Orchestra, HMS Pinafore, Nina, a folk festival, and Dave Brubeck, and George Kadwell, all in one year! To augment my appeal I enclose the following quotation from “Absolute Beginners” by C. MacInnes. “The great thing about the jazz world, and all the kids that enter into it, is that no one, not a soul, cares what your class is, or what your race is, or what your income, or if you’re a boy or a girl . . . or what so long as you dig the r”e”ne?%l c’an behave yourself the result of all this is that, in’ t’he jazz world, you meet all kinds . . , on absolutely equal terms . . .” It is up to the university, in part, to garden the growth of jazz. Please consider seriously Mr. Dietrich’s proposal. William A. Webb.

Hi Kids. It’s 1:00 a.m. and we have just gotten back to the hotel from a day of sessions. We have so much to tell you that we really don’t know where to begin - so we’ll start back at the first day. The initial impression we got was of a tension created by the FrenchCanadian problem. The Universities of Montreal and ’ Sherbrooke were adamant in their demands which the English-speaking caucus felt to be too unreasonable. At the XXVIIth National Congress held last year, the French schools succeeded in getting such concessions as: the change of the name of the organization from N.F.C.U.S. (National Federation of Canadian University Students) to C.U.S. and a change in the voting procedure so as to abolish a weighted vote (based on population of the university) in order to grant the few French schools equal voting power with the far more numerous English schools. English Canada came to this year’s Congress resolved not to grant any more concessions to the French. At this point, however the University of Montreal presented its well-written motion to withdraw from CUS, on the basis that 1) their culture and language were not being represented properly and 2) the Federal Student Loan Plan (for which CUS has lobbied) was contrary to the rights of the province of Quebec regarding education. On this basis, Sherbrooke also withdrew. Several days later, Lava1 presented a motion providing for the dissolution of CUS due to the fact that it was no longer a valid Canadian Union. (You can imagine the bedlam


l,lEmDq &? lll%lRT I .

that broke out over that.) Included in this motion was an alternate nlanthat of an autonomous regional &ructure with an over-all renresentational executive. This motion &being defeated, Lava1 withdrew - which bringsus to another problem . . . You see, Ottawa University and McGill, which grant equal representation to their French and English students,. were left with the! decision as to whether to follow their French counterparts or remain in the Union. Luckily for the Union both agreed to remain. As you can see from all this, CUS is left with a terriffic problem - that of not being representational in regards to Canada as a whole. Well kids, that’s all for now, but there’s more to come later. Diana and Judi
