QUEBEC “POLICE” OUT IN FORCE ,
Quebec (CUP) - Widespread police brutality Saturday turned the Queen’s visit to Quebec Cjty into a major moral victory for the independence movement in French Canada.

There is no relief for the student’s parking problem. The law is that no student may park his car on the campus during the day. After five o’clock, the parking spaces on campus may be used by anyone on a ‘first come first served basis. Where is the sutdent to park? Third and fourth year students with parking stickers park in lot G which will be expanded next week to accommodate 120 cars. Stickers may be obtained from Dept. of Buildings and Grounds at no charge. However, if a car does not have a sticker, then a ticket will be issued starting at one dollar and going up to five. Parking for first and second year students and left over third and fourth year is confined to Seagram Stadium lot. Lot G and Seagram Stadium have a capacity of 620 vehicles and to date 538 students have applied and received permits. Students are reminded that they must obtain these permits immediately if they wish to park in these lots. No provisions will be made for parking in the field when the snow comes. Staff and faculty parking is a mess too. Mr. Vindicomde, manager of the proposed University village, has been assigned the task of straigtening out staff parking. Many of the faculty and staff have not yet obtained their new permits for 1964; however, they are still parking on campus. The ChemistryBiology parking lot has 142 places, but only 33 permits have been issued. Thus, according to the rules, most people in that lot are parking illegally. For the past weeks these illegally-parked cars have been tagged with warning stickers. As yet, no fines have been levied against these cars. Some students have received parking fines after three warnings or less from the University police force. Furthermore, the Waterloo Police Force, having allowed overparking on University Avenue for three weeks, have started issuing tickets for overparking. Lots are available for students to park in. If a student is fined, it is his own fault. However, how long are the faculty and staff going to be allowed to park illegally? I feel that student and staff should be treated alike, but maybe I am an idealist.
The Library by B. G. The Reference Department is concerned with (a) maintenance and development of the Reference Collection itself and (b) giving assistance when needed to faculty, staff, and students in discovery and use of library resources. The modern university library in its attempt to make available to the scholar the heritage of the past and the mounting knowledge of the world today, collects materials of varied types and forms: books, journals, newspapers, pamphlets, government reports and documents, microcards, microfilms, recordings, etc. Confronted with this array of resources, the problem of the reader as he enters the Library Reading Room is to define his question, the area of information he hopes to enter, and the amount, depth, and variety, of discussion needed. The concern of the Reference Staff is by enand quiry, use of the Catalogue
knowledge of library resources, to assist him to recognize material relevant to his subject, to discover what and how much is available, where it is to be found, and, in the case of involved works, how they may be used. Study of the Card Catalogue (which is the Collection, analyzed by author, title, and subject) will show that resources are divided into three groups: (a) the main body of the collection which circulates, that is, may be borrowed for use outside the library, (b) that of rare and valuable works which are used in Restricted Circulation, (c) Reference works which, except for unusual circumstances, must be used in the Reading Room in order that they may be available at all times for consultation. This third group, the Reference Section, is made up of works which tend to be comprehensive in scope, quite condensed in treatment and arranged so as to enable the searcher to find readily and accurately the information he is seeking.

U. of W. campus. He subsequently escaped to the University of Kitchener, where deportation possibilities are now being investigated. “Under my leadership” Mr. Argot said later, “the I.S.U.G. will continue its intensive efforts to close down the Engineering common room and thereby force the University to build a student union building.” After some prodding, Mr. Argot went on to describe the highly successful tactics used by Smoothy Gan-
To the Freshmen A Letter
from Yale University and an editorial from the Queen’s Journal

iff in his campaigns to close the common rooms in the Math and Physics building and the Engnieering building. In both cases, mmebers of the I.S.U.G. organization, dressed to look like ordinary students, spread candy wrappers, empty paper cups, and crumpled Corypheii about the common room areas from day to day. Eventually, the Math and Science common room was converted to a reading room, but the Engineering common room managed to survive. Seeing that the engineers were not about to give up their singular possession without a fight, Smoothy added a little fun to his mission. Sporadically, he would send I.S.U.G. people in to attack the dispensing machines in order to make the engineers look bad in the eyes of the university officials. After all, he would reason, the officials can’t trust the students with a whole room to themselves if they are going to try to break open the machines to pay for their tuition, and pour cod-liver oil down the coin return slots. In the past few weeks before his conviction, Ganiff observed considerable opposition to his efforts.’ He discovered a small body of students who were determined to clean up the common room; but it didn’t take him long to convince them that their efforts should be applied elsewhere. Mr. Argot now feels that the university officials suspect the existance of his group; therefore he plans a last ditch campaign to gain his aims. Although there were hints that he had a large number of additions to his overall plan, Argot would only reveal three: the establishment of a dog park where pet dogs can be left for the day, standing on pages from the Coryphaeus to protect the common room floor, the importation of tipsy students from the various night spots to the comfortable furnishings of the common room, and finally, a serious attempt to dispose of the shovels and rakes, used by the janitors, to clean the common room after the I.S.U.G. men have done their work. As a demonstration of his secure knowledge and understanding of the student mind, Mr. Argot explained that the only thing that could defeat his organization, a general willingness to cleanup his pet project, could never arise because of the laws of inertia.
come an individual well-educated and well-prepared for your role as community participant and good citizen. Forget it. Unless you are one of the rare ones, unless you are either so equipped that college will not cripple you or make you so cynical that you are unburdened by the illusion of the Academe, these four years will be” more dull grey markers on the road to comfortable mediocrity. Your four years will be spent in the company of little minds on both sides of the classroom lectern. You will be scribbling notes in the company of “students” whose every thought and every deed is a mockery of that term, whose capacity for inquiry and questioning ends with the material on the final examination, and whose world is bounded by clothes, sports cars, the football games, and a shallow, mechanistic obsession with sex. 1 Your comrades are the Takers the generation spawned by prosperity and complacency, for whom obligations do not exist, commitment is a joke, and concern for others a waste of time. Their lives revolve around themselves, confined as narrowly as possible, and their universe, which ends with what they can possess. The thrill of dissent, the sparks of intellectual challenge, the lust for inquiry, is absent - because it cannot be hung from a wall, worn, driven, or shown off at a dance. Your teachers are a breed of men too often forced to an obsession with the trivial. Plagued by the need to publish for the sake of publishing, untutored in the responsibility of offering value in what they write, the guardians of your minds are themselves men who delight in artificial constructs and in clever word games. The classroom for many of them, is a way-station between the library and the faculty club, a whistlestop where they cast their artificial pearls. And yet . . . somewhere in this desert of Summer Proms, Greek Weeks, Pep Rallies, Kampus Karnivals, Fall Proms, final papers, Fiji Island Romps, Winter Proms, midterm examinations . . . somewhere a teacher will strike sparks in your mind . . . somewhere you will stay up all night and probe your own goals and motives with a friend . . . somewhere the myriad injustices of the world will set your soul on fire with indignation . .. And somewhere, you will read a book you have not read before, and wonder at a new thought fully phrased by an extraordinary thinker, and you will in spite of yourself be driven to question what you have believed all your life. And before you plunge back into the inanities of American college life you may perceive what education is about and see why men spend their lives teaching others. May these moments in the arid wasteland you are now entering be many.
of the Flies
“Don’t forget we’re English.” So .begins this film adaptation of William Golding’s brilliant novel. And with sickening inevitability the boys do forget that they’re English and even that they’re human. Slowly their rules are broken and slowly but surely they slide into complete savagery, destroying all those who do not revert to a primitive archetype. . That this is inevitable is the major premise of the nova1 and the film conveys this with frighting power. Writer-director Peter Brook has occasionally been forced to put unnatural dialogue into the mouths of the boys but if his control of them is unsure, his control of the camera is not. He also acted as editor and has put together some very powerful sequences (particularly the hunt of Ralph at the end) that grip the audience. The dialogue and acting are at odds with the reality of the shooting and detract from the over-all effect, but in total the film is an important (if minor) piece. Brook has made very good use of the locale (an island near Puerto Rico) and the visual effects are excellent. Raymond Leppard’s score is used sparingly but very well. The result is a haunting film with important implications for all of us. In the film Ralph ends weeping for ,his lost innocence but it is an innocerise about ourselves that we all must lose. More so today than ever before, when the hunting is done, not with spears but with intercontinental misseles.
Films Galore by Dave
The study and appreciation of films as an art form has taken a great upswing in the twin cities and, as university students, we should be pleased and we should take advantage of it. One example is the Waterloo Theatre, which re-opened last year on an “art” program. Upcoming films this year include a Bergman festival, Orson Welles’ “Macbeth” and another chance to puzzle through “Last Year at Marienbad.” Professor MacQuarrie has had a great deal to do with this iupswing. He has created and maintained the Film Society on campus. This year it has moved to the Waterloo and is showing a mixture of classics (like W.C. Fields) and more recent but otherwise unobtainable films. As well, this year he is running two other series, one of films for his English 101 class and one on “Basic Patterns in Literature.” This latter is a survey of many forms of communication, ranging from poems like “The Divine Comedy” through comics (Little Ab’ner) and plays to novels and, of course, films like Fellini’s “81/2” All this is (or should be) rather exciting. It is another indication of the dynamic growth of the University of Waterloo.

They may supply information directly, or as in indexes and bibliographies, direct to other sources where information may be found. Acknowledgement of the importance to modern scholarship of these, latter - the directing services - must be made later when actual services can be named and described. ‘Reference works on the whole tend - to be studies of authority, scholarship and distinction. Factual information such as found in national yearbooks, almanacs and directories, handbooks, single volume subject encyclopedias, guide books, and dictionaries tends to have the authority of government departments, international institutions, learned societies or distinguished editors, e.g., Canada Yearbook, United Nations Statistical Yearbook, Statistical Abstracts of the United States, Whitaker’s Almanac,, Fra* ser’s Canadian Trade Directory.
Other works, the well-known encyclopedias and dictionaries, the great geographical, historical and literary studies are valued not only for the immense amount of factual information to be found in them but also for the interpretative comment and discussion contributed by scholars and specialists in the field. These while intended primarily to be read through for information and pleasure are so comprehensive, accurate, and distinguished in level of discussion, so well-provided with indexes and tables that they serve as references. Examples of such .books in our collection are : Cam bridge Medieval History (8 vols.), Nouvelle Gkographie Universelle ( 19 vols.), Its Provinces (23 ~01s.).
The great encyclopedias and dictionaries, established as tools for ready reference, have made such serious and fine contributions to knowledge as to establish - themselves as authorities. A check of famous for-eign encyclopedias - French, Spanish, Portuguese; Russian, or our more familiar Amerciana, Canadiana, Britannica (1 lth edition accounted by many the most scholarly work in the English language), would be rewarding. Examination of any or all will reveal why they are accorded the respect they receive. In spite of variety of form the reference tools of our library may be readily grouped, their special characteristics recognized and utilized. Next week the. following will be analyzed by type, discussed briefly, and techniques for use recommended: (1) and dictionaries (2) Encyclopedias Biographical works (3) Indexes and abstracts (4) Yearbooks and directories (5) Guidebooks,, manuals and handbooks (6) Serial ;publications (7) Histories (8) Atlases, maps, gazetteers (9) Bibliographies.
HOW’RE by A. J. Kellingworth, I II .
The old Dominion-Provincial Loans, which offered slightly more advantageous terms than the new Federal Loans, have been discontinued. It will be interesting to observe whether or not the amount paid out in bursaries has been decreased and, if this is the case, how the Government will justify the decrease. Presumably the line will be that fewer people applied for bursaries. But it is difficult to believe that students with the necessary academic requirements would forego money which is not repayable in favour of a loan which will cost at least 5% % interest.
During her visit to Quebec last week, Queen Elizabeth expressed the hope that “the centenary of our Confederation will be a symbol’ of hope for the‘ world. To fully succeed it must produce an effective. and freely consented-to agreement that will be the expression of the maturity of our country.” Good for you, Queenie. Now, if only the little children on both sides of the fence will grow up and take a look at what they have to * offer each other, all this nonsense - about two separate and irreconcilable cultures will stop.
The other day, my roommate and I dug into the beer pot in order to partake of the culinary efcellence of the Ali Baba Steak House, (He didn’t know what I meant by that last phrase, but he came along anyway.) At any rate, “excellence” was far from the truth. The least expensive steak dinner, which was priced rather high for Joe Student, was drab and unexciting. The service was rather slow and the only saving grace of I the evening was the fact that the waitress managed to bend over just far enough to provide an interesting topic of conversation.
It seems that the local brew halls have begun to hit their stride; relaxed bull sessions over eight ounces of good stuff is becoming a pastime enjoyed by the multitudes. In fact, the usual run of pranks such as an attempt by an enterprising group of lads to drink one establishment dry of its wares has also provided many evenings of merriment. However, when such insane antics as boat racing become the standard fare for the evening, I for one retire to my tomes. Just because I cannot slosh my ale back in one-point-two does not make a damn bit of difference to me, but it does to most of the idiots who comprise the regulars. If you are going to drink, there is not much sense in not enjoying what you are doing, and I frankly cannot see how anyone can enjoy an activity which lasts less than two seconds. . *A -

Once again after a brief spell of summer vacations, the campus is hustling and bustling with life. Initiation is over and students are seen almost running amuck loaded with text-books, note-books, briefcases, lunch packets etc. The University Avenue is a busy thoroughfare punctuated with jostlings and joltings of every conceivble type. The Bank of Montreal is another busy corner and the Bank personnel is kept alert perhaps inwardly grumbling and cursing at the student rush. Among the students there are the new-comers and particularly the overseas students to whom the new country is a dream and the vastness of the campus is a fantasy. They trudge their way with the hope that they will befriend the veterans on. the _. Campus, exchange views, listen to news and get themselves familiarized with the day to day workings of the University of Waterloo.
successful in my venture. At last at 7:30 in the evening when dusk had drawn its gloomy curtain and erratic cold wind blowing briskly seemed to sap the residues of my energy. I found an apartment. I was lucky. Well, I write this to say that all these troubles could be minimized if not avoided if there was an organization of overseas students to help the newcomers. I am given to understand that there is such an organization called I.S.A. (International Student’s Association), but whether it is in function or disfunction I do-not know. What is needed on this campus is a strong and well-formed International Student’s Association - I.S.A. or better, Canada - Overseas Student’s Association C.O.S.A., which not only overseas students but also Canadian students will take active part in solving the problems of the newcomers.
Such an organization will, no doubt, fulfil1 the felt need of fostering better, closer and healthier ties among the students of Waterloo University. In my opinion, each student on the campus is indeed, an ambassador in miniature of his country, reflecting his countries glorious traditions, customs, moves and culture. He has come to this land of Canada not only to drink at the fount of learning of the University of -Waterloo, but also and quite naturally so, to acquaint himself with different cultures and thus promote warm feelings and real understanding not only among students on the campus, but also with community at large. I trust overseas students will realize this and lend their whole-hearted support and cooperation to build up a sound and vital organization on the campus of the University.
Hart House Orchestra Last Saturday evening we were treated to a very enjoyable performance in the Theatre of the Arts by the Hart House ‘Orchestra - all 200 of us. The number of students attending was particularly small, undoubtedly because most of them had gone home for the long weekend (Theatre of the Arts Planning Committee please take note.) The small student audience must have seemed rather unusual because the group of 13 string musicians took the first half of the concert to acclimatize themselves. After the performance, they admitted that they also had to familiarize themselves with our theatre but that it had a good sound and was an ideal situation for such chamber groups. rather
Mr. Boyd Neel, the conductor, commented on each work but with a bored complacency, for example, “And here is Mr. Fiore with his flute.”
The suite from Alcina lacked the dramatic quality that Handel must have intended for his opera. The Mozart and Telemann showed the brilliant precision of the orchestra. In fact, the few erring moments during the evening could not have altered my impression of professionalism. The flute soloist, Mr. Fiore, in the Telemann displayed remarkable agility although he could not always be heard when he and the first violins doubled on some parts. The second half presented contemporary works. I found the Freedman and Kennan works perhaps most enjoyable. In the Fantasy and Allegro the concertmaster made the best of his opportunity and both Mr. Neel and the orchestra loosened up enough to care for the subtle tonalities. In the Night Soliloquy Mr. Fiore’s performance was almost exquisite. The orchestra ended the concert with a romp through a Divertimento of folk melodies by Leo Wiener. The audience showed due appreciation and the orchestra played two encores, Strass’ Pizzicato Polka and a Rondo by Mozart.
I, being myself an overseas student, am well aware of the difficult and trying days I had when I first came to this campus three weeks ago. Everything being new and confusing, I had to run from pillar to post, from Business office to Apartment and from Apartment to Department and finally being thoroughly exhausted had to steal a few moments of relaxation sipping a hot cup of coffee in the Cafeteria. The same, I am sure, has been experienced by many a newcomer. The first few days in a new country in new surroundings are baffling and efforts in adjustment are called for. On my arrival here, the biggest hurdle I had to overcome was to secure an apartment. Being reminded of the Biblical quotation that “the son of God had no place where to lay His head on.” I was too placed in the same, predicament though, of course, I am a son of man. I spent two nights at St. Jerome’s with a sword of Democles hanging on my head because the student to whom the room was allotted would come at any time fortunately he must have had pity for me - and I had to make my own arrangements. However, instead of brooding over, I summed up courage and determined to find some place or the other, I combed all the streets of Waterloo, near and far, like a mendicant knocking at every door. I virtually invaded every home and adopting an aggressive attitude said I needed a place, to live.
