Bursary by Library
Each Christmas since the founding of the University the Library Staff has suggested to the members of faculty, the staff and the students of the University, that contributions to the Bursary Fund would be a very welcome and practical substitute for the exchange of Christmas cards within the University. In this year of the affluent student, there are still some who need the help and the boost to morale that a bursary can give. We therefore suggest once again that cash or cheques, made out to the Bursary Fund, University of Waterloo, be deposited with Mr. T. C. Boyes of the Registrar’s Office, or with any member of the Library Staff, and that a card be tied to the Christmas Tree in the Lobby and Mathematics of the Physics Building, with your name inscribed, and the message “To The Bursary Fund.” You will be giving your support to what we consider a worthy University tradition. I “God rest you merry, ladies and gentlemen, and a Happy Christmas to all.”
Ski Club Seventy students jammed P-l 10 on Tuesday to attend the founding meeting of the University of Waterloo Ski Club. Over one hundred students had indicated their interest in the club on sheets posted on the bulletin boards. Matching the interest, the first meeting was an ambitious one at which the club officers were elected. The Ski Club is presently awaiting recognition from Students’ Council. They are already making plans for skiing on weekends and during the week. Ian MacNaughton was elected President at the Tuesday meeting. Other officers are: Vice-President Tom Wells, Secretary - Jan Bartels, Treasurer - Steve Shelly, Program Director - Steve Case. It is hoped that any other students interested in the club will attend the next meeting on January 6 when films will be shown.
Il“:’ Dance h4.
The University of Waterloo Tech. Association held a successful dance on Friday night and will use the $2 10 profit for the Children’s Christmas Party on this Saturday afternoon in the University cafeteria at 2:00 p.m. In addition, donations from various individuals brought in $50. The university will also make a similar donation to match the amount already collected. More than 160 people attended the Christmas Dance held at the Bridgeport Casino. The Silvertones provided the music for the occasion. A buffet was provided at mid-night.
$9100 University of Waterloo students, Kitchener-Waterloo residents, and a few W.U.C.‘s helped put U. of W. into third place in Canada. Marty Kravitz, Treasure Van organizer, said on Saturday night that $9,100 worth of goods had been sold during the six-day sale. This compares favourably with last year’s $2,100. Mr. Kravitz attributed the success to better weather, a better location and improved organization. He said “we knew we were going to sell more, but we didn’t know how much more.”
Flying Club Goes Supersonic The U. of W. Flying Club met for the second time on Thursday, December 3. Sixty-seven students braved the elements to attend. The first portion of the meeting saw Mr. Len Worton, of the Waterloo-Wellington Flying Club, outline the flying, training and aircraft rental program which his club offered. The floor was then left open for those who had questions. The question of a discount rate for students who wanted to learn how to fly was brought up and Mr. Worton said that this was quite possible, but could got say what the reduction might be. This figure will be available by the next meeting. After a coffee break, the second half of the meeting got underway, as three colour films were shown through the courtesy of the Shell Oil Co. They were: (1) Approaching the Speed of Sound (2) Transonic Flight (3) Supersonic Flight Although the films were of a semitechnical nature, they were of such a caliber that they were of interest to both layman and technologist alike. A supersonic wind-tunnel illustrated the effect of the forming of shock waves as the speed of sound was approached and then passed. These effects were further demonstrated by pictures of sleek jets breaking the sound barrier, together with the accompanying sonic boom. The photography was excellent and the action shots were very exciting. It is unlikely that more than a handful of people in the audience had ever seen the phenomena that were so simply and graphically illustrated by the films. This was the last meeting of the term.
Winter Festival ‘65 Norm Anderson, Chairman of the Winter Festival Committee, has announced the tentative schedule for the Winter Weekend to be held on January 29 thru to January 3 1. On Friday, January 29, there will be a basketball game between the Queen’s Golden Gaels and the Warriors at Seagram Stadium. After the game, there will be a sock hop in the gym. On Saturday morning the snow sculptures built by the faculties and colleges will be judged. At night, there will be the Winterland Ball at Bingeman Park in their new dance hall. Al Stanwick and his 17 piece orchestra will provide the music. There will be the crowning of the Winter Queen and the awarding of the snow sculpture trophy. On Sunday, there will be a jazz’ concert in the Theatre of the Arts by Nimmon’s ‘N’ Nine. Norm Anderson is busily engaging these features for Winter Weekend and is also arranging more. The Winter Festival Committee would like to hear any suggestions from ’ anyone, Now; not in January when it is too late.
For the Record...
Treasure Van is organized by World University Services, a nonprofit organization, to raise money for projects in underdeveloped countries. It buys a stock of goods at the beginning of the year, and this is shipped around to different universities who sell as much of it as they can. The University of’waterloo is now in third place in sales in Canada. We are behind the University of Toronto and the University of Alberta in Edmonton. These universities are somewhat larger than/U. of W. and the sales per student ratio is quite comparable.

Although it has no real power, the committee is intended to serve as a suggestive or advisory body to the powers that be. No recommendations were decided upon in this first meeting, but a number of topics were discussed. One such topic was the population of students in the theatre of the arts when various artists are performing. Advice to the theatre administration on ways of decreasing the number of empty seats will certainly be forthcoming.“ Some ideas mentioned on this topic were the hiring of expensive and well known artists, cheap advance tickets for early students,
The Treasure Van organizers would like to express their thanks to all those who helped. They expect to sell proportionately more next year, that is $30 - 40 thousand worth.

- Dreadful by Dave
The Hindu Religion
At the last free concert, (Mary Simmons), I was embarassed because only about fifty people showed up; at pianist Jean-Pierre Vetter, I was embarassed because about three hundred and fifty people showed up. His playing was dreadful. He missed notes here, threw in jumbled runs there, changed the timing all over the keyboard, and used the sustaining pedal whenever his foot got tired (which was often). In fact, it’s a good thing he -didn’t have to tune the piano because I’m sure it would have been off key. He started out by making some comments about Beethoven’s 32 variations. These turned out to be pretty silly, and wound up giving me the impression that he really wasn’t too sure what the variations were all about. By the time he got finished playing them, the only thing you could have said to his credit was that he was consistent; bad comments, bad playing. After this first fiasco, Mr. Vetter took a shot at Beethoven’s sonata ‘the Appassionata’ and missed. Once again he hashed everything up and occassionally even had to sing (one of his many pseudo-artist mannerisms) to let us know that there was a melody somewhere. This mess brought the concert to intermission. After intermission, Mr. Vetter was supposed to play Beethoven’s sonata’s opus 27 number one, and opus III. I don’t know if he tried them or not, because I followed the other escapee’s example and left. This concert was an excellent example of a snow-job. Mr. Vetter’s publicity made him sound like Europe’s only piano virtuoso. By dropping unknown names, and twisting the facts five times, this man gets joisted onto an unsuspecting audience.
‘Work on the Greut Lakes by G. T. Caas& A very active research programme this year has been the work in the fluid dynamics of the Great Lakes, particularly Lake Huron, Financial support is provided by several agencies, but mainly by the Great Lakes Institute of Toronto (GLI), from whom was obtained the research vessel “LOON,” used last summer in investigations of mixing processes in the lakes. Current research projects are: (a) Turbulence and Diffusion. Flourescent dye released at a pointsource may be detected in very low concentrations and enables a study or mixing processes to be made. The practical importance of this study is evident in such applications as the mixing of undesirable pollutants (e.g. sewage) or of the cooling water from thermal power stations with the water masses of the lake. (b) Internal waves. During the summer the lakes become stratified,
a warm, relatively light surface layer lying on top of a colder and heavier mass below. The interface, the “thermocline,” behaves much like a free surface (air-water interface) in theat wave motions may be observed on it. The dynamics of these may be studied by thermistor chains on fixed instrument towers. (c) Lake currents. Wind and atmosphere pressure disturbances produce a variety of complicated current patterns. These are investigated using “drogues,” i.e., two metal sheets assembled at 90 so as to offer a high drag and attached to small surface floats. The drogue may be set at any desired depth and provides information on lake currents at various levels. The ultimate purpose of these research activities is to elucidate the mechanism of the various dynamic processes on the lakes. There are, however, also proximate goals of great importance to the achievement of which an engineer is particularly well equipped to contribute, for example, the development of reliable current meters suitable for use in the Great Lakes.
Mass arrests of students followed a sit-in protesting against a bar on the distribution of political literature at the Berkley campus of the University of California. Led by the Free Speech Movement leader, Mario Savio, 21, the students had occupied the administration centre building;, on their arrest, they submitted to police and allowed themselves to be dragged to police vans and buses for transport to jail. Reports said that the 800 students, participating in the demonstration organized by the Berkley campus FSM were arrested. Most were released on mass bail. / The Free Speech Movement, an organization uniting left and right wing movements on campus, was formed at the beginning of the school year and has been disputing with the university administration since. Students have traditionally distributed political literature on campus from tables at a location supposed to be just outside university jurisdiction. This year, the administration ruled that this area was also on campus and banned the distribution of political literature there. Matters came to a head at the beginning of October when one student was arrested by police for defying the ban. Thousands of students staged a sleep-in around the police car in which the student, a member of the Congress of Racial Equality was to be taken away. Following negotiations between the FSM and administration, an uneasy
We often hear that the cow is a sacred animal in India. This is a basic Hindu belief. Today this belief is so strong in India that it has become illegal to kill a cow. They let the cow die a natural death, just as a human does. A few Indians even worship the cow as their mother. This worship originated with the birth of Krishna, a form of God, who was born as a herdsman on earth. His legendary purpose was to destroy the numerous demons that then existed. The demons used to interrupt the holy services that were offered to God, by throwing pieces of meat during the services. This Krishna, being a herdsman, had a great liking for cows. The cow is a very clean and useful animal, and everything from her can be used, (even her dung for the purpose of fuel); Therefore he chose her as his symbol. According to the religious books on Hinduism, Krishna prayed to the cow and considered her as a mother, and people, today carry on this tradition. Not all Hindus refuse to eat meat although it is against their religion to do so. Indians don’t look at life quite the way Christians do. For example Christians do not believe in animals having souls, whereas the Hindus do. They say that when you hurt any living creature, he can feel the pain just as any human being would have felt it, and so why should they harm somebody who does not harm them. They consider hurting an innocent creature a sin according to their religion. In spite of that one will find a majority of Indians eating meat, perhaps because the country is getting westernized, and adopting the habits and customs of the West. Some less educated and poor people are even converting themselves into Christianity for it is only then that they are helped by Christian organizations which are set up in India to spread Christianity by distributing Christian literature and Bible courses. I, of course, could keep on writing about this religion or any religion for that matter, for that is a subject

One of Dorothy Buffum Chandler’s “happenings” took place in Los Angeles a week ago Sunday, when the Music Center for the Performing Arts opened with a gala concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Zubin Mehta, violinist Jascha Heifetz playing the Beethoven concerto. Said Mr. Chandler, one of America’s most dynamic money-raisers: “Personally, I’m not a mad music or art lover. I am interested in education in all its phases. The most neglected phase in this world, where science so stressed, may soon be that artistic talent won’t have a break, if we don’t protect or encourage it. Musicians, painters, sculptors - they get discouraged and cynical. We must make sure that they can be heard and seen. I am loyally determined to upgrade the image of my community.”
The School of Music of Brandon College recently opened its new building and under the vigorous leadership of Lorne Watson is developing its new potentialities. Albert Pratz, until this spring the concert-master of the recently demised CBC Symphony Orchestra and one of Canada’s finest violinists is heading the string department.
Writes Keith MacMillan, Executive Secretary of the Canadian Music Center in the December News Letter of the Center: “Three things Vancouver has that other cities do not, an International Festival, an independant Canadian concert agency, “Overture Concerts” and thirdly, more Americans per square foot than any other University music department in Canada. This latter emphasizes the considerable degree of north-south orientation in B.C., and has caused a sort of cautious dismay in other parts of the community. However, the rapid development of a large and active music department under Welton Marquis is notable in itself, and it will be interesting indeed to see the endproducts of this “conservatory-f acuity” as they roll off the line, especially since Vancouver has no ranking conservatory for the under-university-age set.”

The go-day detention clause of the government of South Africa will be suspended January 11 of next year. The law, which has been condemned by many groups in Canada, the United States, and the United Nations, was part of an act passed in 1963 and permits police to detain people indefinitely without trial. Of the more than 900 people imprisoned under the clause, some, on release, have reported torture and harsh treatment during seclusion. The goverment’s decision to suspend the clause apparently reflects’ confidence that it has broken the back of any organized subversion and sabotage in the country. However, Minister of Justice John Vorster warned that the clause could be reinstituted, if necessary, immediately. The cat, it seems, still has claws.

Ontario Minister of Health, Matthew Dymond, told students at Ryerson Technological Institute last week that at least one of every ten Canadians suffers from mental illness, and that many psychiatrists have, suggested that the actual ratio is closer to one out of two. Labelling mental illness as “Canada’s number one health problem,” Mr. Dymond said that Ontario alone last year spent $85 million on the mentally ill in hospitals.

Thirty demonstrators, all students in residence at McGill University, posed as a group for a moment on the steps of the university dining hall for television cameras, then resumed their march to allow cameramen to take action shots. The students were protesting an enforced limit on the amount of bread and butter allowed at each meal with such slogans as “Give us our daily bread” and “Man cannot live by bread alone, he needs butter as well.” The McGill supervisor of Dining Halls said he confers regularly with student food committees and felt that the demonstrators”were .being unreasonable.

despite ‘the attempts ’ of an inspired Warrior goalie. Waterloo then had: a goal recalled and- it was not until the last three minutes of the game that theI score was tied during a McMaster penalty. The most. impressive aspect of the game was the s&all number of penalties handed out to each team. This was mainly due to the cleanliness of play, .but. the lack of observation of the referees may also have had something to do with it,. +.

The Warriors continued in their ~winning ways, last Wednesday by. ,des’ feating the Waterloo Lutheran Hawks by a score of 69-61. The game was fairly close except _at one point when the Warriors led by 17 pointy. The Warroirs dominated the play but the , Hawks were more accurate in the shooting department. The, Warriors depended on ball control and methodical play-making while the Hawks concentrated more on outside shoot3 ing. In the end, ball control was the winning factor:

In the second half Tom ‘Henderson took up the slack scoring’ ten’ points, which brought. his game total to 16 points. The really .effective point in Tom’s game was. his rebounding. His 16 rebounds kept the ball-in Warrior control most of. the game. ‘ Near the ./ end, of the game the Hawks were pressing and it :was the fine work ‘of Bill Steinburg and Dick Aldridge that I kept the game out -of reach of our arch-rivals. The ‘remainder of the scoring went like this; Bill Steinburg 10, Dick Aldridge 6, Bob Pando 5, Chet Cuipa 2, Gary Cuff 4, Ed Ochiena 4. The gamewas exciting but .most Warrior fans had hoped for a mo& lop-sided score. One must , bear in mind, however, that the Hawks are vastly improved ball club over last year and- it took a, good effort to beat them. The Warriors played well ‘iand their superior finesse in ball handling showed in the last two minutes, during which time there was no scoring. The Warriors simpiy froze the game and took home a de_ served victory.

A little more enthusiasm was displayed in the second half when the play was considerably speeded up. W.L.U. scored 24 of their 25 points ‘in this half in’ a desperate effort to close the scoring gap.
