Its faculties willsuffer accordingly. This is the reason universitypresident J. G. Hagey, financial vicepresident A. K. Adlington,academlc vice-president T.L. Batke, Jack Adarm, Mr. J. Brown and 21 of the university board of governors met witi Premier Robarts and theminister of education, Fred Davies, at Queen’s Park on May 5. In a Coryphaeus interview President Hagey said the board wanted to meet the ministers in order co impress them with the need for increased funds for the continued healthy development of our universityo . He said we differed primarily from other universities in that we have grown so fast that we have not had the time to raisethep0rtion of costs that the present provincial plan calls for. ‘Focus’, the in December.

McMaster University has accused Waterloo of4nfringing 6n their copyright privileges by publishing Focus. Engineering Society president Toks Oshinowo started off the first meeting of the Engineering Society on May 2 by reading a letter from the McMaster engineers, claiming that a magazine entitled ticMaster engineers in focus, has been published there since 1964. The M&aster publication in no way resembles the University of Waterloo’s Focus, first published in December. Since Waterloo is not using Mc-

Gory needs luck, staff , this sumtier Wish the Coryphaeus luck. This is the first summer it has &nned to publish regularly--every second Friday. Why not help out on the staff? There will be a staff meeting in the board of publications office at ‘7:30 Wednesday. Refreshments. There are 860 students studying on cambus for the spring-summer term: 707 have returned from engineering work terms, 38 from applied physics and 115 from co-op mathematics jobs. (These figures are approximate.) As well, about a thousand copies of the Cory are being mailed tostudents now on their work terms across Canada. The paper is also available to any vacati0ning regular-program student who cares to drop into the Cory office and to a faculty-staff population of about a thousand.

A message from8 the ‘director.S.,, As you know the coordination department originated a Newsletter last fall in an attempt to keep you informed of our activities while youwere on your out\ term. Upon your return to campus you were requested to fill in a questionnaire asking “Is it worthwhile? Yes .or no **) as well as to make any comments that could lie helpful ,to us in improving the Newsletter and the type of news and information you wished to receive. This questionnaire-was to be submitted unsigned. Most of the students who returned completed the questionnaire and of these 97 percent indicated,that the Newsletter was worthwhile. 51 percent added corn-, merits and of these several indicated that we were duplicating the news supplied by the Coryphaeus. This was not uur intent, ratherwewere attempting to supplement and complement what normally appears in the Coryphaeus but morespedficallyslanted to the out-term co-operative students. ’ We were both commended and cridcized for some of the material appearing-criddzed for an incorrect list of electives. Such material we obtain from the source we believe to be responsible for it and only pass it along to you as provided to us. During the winter term we provided examination .results for those students who wrote in December, Agam we received criticism for not having made

them available earlier, bu+ fairness we should say that they were published and sent out in the Newsletter in less than a week after theywerereceived by us. A criticism was voiced by onestudent who was unhappy that his name appeared - eva though he had cleared all subjects at a good level. By far the majority of students were pleased to receive the overall results and because of this it is our intention to’publish them for the winter term. Should therebeanyone who does not wish to have his name appear insuch a list, please advise either the registrar’s office or me at once. It is planned that there willbeseven issues of the Coryphaeus published during the spring and summer months and it is-our intention to incorporate in it once a month the Newsletter. Wehavearranged, by supplying out-term address labels (taken from your jobreply cards 1) that you will bemailedeach copy of the Coryphaeus published during the above’ period. (We should say that we are picking uppart of the price-tag for this endeavor.) We hope you will like this effort and again when. you return to campus youwillbeprovided with a questionnaire to obtain your reaction to this joint project. Sincerely, A. S. BARBER, P. Eng.

home or abroad may enter the competition. A competitor may treat any or several aspects of Canadian life: political, economic, constitutional, cultural, educational, external relations or less precise fields such as a search for a Canadian identity. By July 15,1966, a competitor is required eo submit an accurate abstract (up to 2200 words), which plots the structure of a complete work or thesis. By November 1, 1966, the judges will select the top kn abstracts. The winners will have teslmonths to submit a book or thesis based upon their abstracts. Twoof theten winning abstracts will be reserved for the best EnglishandbestFrench submissions from Canadian students registered at any degreegranting university or college in or out of Canada, Further details are available from information services (local 238), or the registrar.

Hudgins, ‘However # our own interest lies mainly in exploring more fundamentally the mechanism ofthe process.‘* Calcium carbide. is used in the production of cyanamide forfertflizer, and is reacted with water to form acetylene, a fuel for welding torches and an important raw material for a great varietycf chemical syntheses e To produce calcium carbide a great deal of electrical energy is needed to react quicklime and carbon in the molten state, at temperatures of 2,000 degrees centigrade. By discovering the mechanismprocesses in the formation of the churnical, Professors Gall and Hudgins hope to react the quicklime and carbon in the solid state at half the temperature, saving greatly in electrical power. Professor Gall completed his undergraduate work at Royal Military College and the University of Toronco. After teaching at theUniversity of Addis Ababa for three years he received his master of applied xi= ence in chemical engineering from Queen% University. At present he is completing his Ph D thesis atthe University of Minnesota. Professor Hudgins received his bachelor and master of applied science in chemical engineering from U of T and his Ph D from Princeton. Both have been members of the univ6mity of Waterloo faculty for two years.

by Alfred E. Joseph The numerical methods course has a snag in it: too many people and too little computer time, There is one computer, the 1620, for about 150 people. Each person has at least two programs to run each week. Each of theseprograms has to be run at least three times to debug it. An estimate of one minute per program seems reasonable. The time involved is 15 hours. The math department seems to have decided, “we can close down the 1710 room altogether andrnaybe even cut back on the 1620 hours.” One flaw in this reasoning is that the 1620 is going almost solidly for all the times the room is open and the machine is more than an hour behind during peak periods (afternoons* evening, and mornings),

is typical.

The 1710, a faster machine, however. is available in the afternoons in an effort tx alleviate the situation. This hasn’t helped much, There must be a remedy--let’s view the alternatives: --approximately 150 students; maybe we can persuade half of them to go out ona work term right now. --one minute per program3 maybe we can tell everybody to write shorter programs. --one and a half computers ; let’s take up a collectionfor $200,000 and buy another one* Not much of this makes sense, admitedly, so the real alternatives boil down to--write the programs right the first time or schedule the numerical methods problems in s U& a way so as to permit a smaller number to use the machines in any one week,

of the members Council executive was handled badly. point of view it for this executive co-ordinating body campus because it artsmen, one enone science rep-

A number of considerations made the situation even worse. First the new vice-president, Steve Ireland, was President Mike Sheppard’s campaign manager. Secondly there seems to be little doubt that Mr. Sheppard discouraged Joe Recchia’s application for the position of treasurer. Finally, minutes after Mr. Sheppard had asked Council to create the new post of information committee chairman, he nominated his girlfriend for the post. If all this is any indication of what we can expect from our new president in the coming months then it’s going to be a long hard year. Admittedly no one else applied for any of the executive positions-

except Mr. Recchia, who later withdrew his application, thereby giving Bill Siddall, the only engineer on the executive, the treasurers position. However, in vi,ew of the importance of this committe, one wonders why Mr. Sheppard couldn’t have stirred up some interest as he did during the Council elections when he could be found running through the hall looking for people to si,gn nomination forms. There is no Science Society and so science students may find it hard to voice objections to their lack of fair representation. But there is a very strong Engineering Society, which would have little trouble rocking Council’s boat, if given a cause to do so. Especially since the presidential election saw the new president elected primarily by artsmen, it would probably not take too much to get the engineers making waves. Mike Sheppard is supposed to represent the whole student body. He is supposed to be a cohesive force. So far he’s doing a poor job in this capacity.

of “little things“ headed for the bstseller lists. She always has regarded her books and magazine articles as diversions from her main concern, playwriting. Her first play* *Jennie kissed me’, was produced in 1948, and was followed by movie scripts emusicals and TV plays. However,Mrs,

Kerr prefers to write for the stage and is best known for ‘Touch and and gob, ‘The song of Bernadette’ ‘King of Hearts’. She began writing ‘Mary, Mary’ m Ash Wednesday in 1960. +lfway through the first act, she began to think of Barbara Bel Geddes as Mary, and Barbara agreed to play the part. The play was finished in three and a half months--thequickest thing Jean Kerr had ever written. She considered this a good + ,men--and rightly so.

The five characters in ‘Mary, MaIy’ are not only interesting and funny but warmly human, The situation is so universal that North American audiences should be enjoying the play for many years.

by Allen Class math IB The Kitchener-W aterloo Symbhony Orchestra performed Monday to a near-capacity audiencein the Theater of the Arts,, The performance did not reflect the capabilities of an orchestra with over 16 years experience. Conductor F rederick Poh.l* a man with a charming smile and accent but. a clumsy baton, introduced the performance with one of his own works, ‘Fanfare*, After this bungle of brass the audience relaxed to the more familiar selecdonsfrom %armen te The next attempt by Pohl,ent.itled *Introduction and Adagio from the classical festival overture’,featured a rather weak clarinet solo by Douglas Janke, A Mendelssohn nocturne then stabilized the performance before intermission. As a prelude to the second half Mr. Pohl was given an award from the Kitchener Musicians Association for “his contribution tomusic in the K-W area.** Pohl% own works in my opinion, lack genius and inspiration. ‘From the cr eadon’, the dtle of his next work, is a regurgitation of the creadon theme with words by James

Weldon Johnson. ‘An impressive beginning soon lost: its effect in superfluous orchestration which was incoherent with the main theme, Donald Landry, guest baritone,presented a technically good solo despite the material he had to work with. The standard of performance did improve in the last numbers, ‘Cau-

The strength bf the orchestra ijs in the woodwind section, pardcularly the oboes, Both percussion and brass detract from the whole. For an encore the orchestraperformed a rather popsy version of Fiddle-faddle’ which served as an after-dinner mint to cover agenerally poor meal. In a brief interview with Mr. Pohl after the performance I learned of his reputable background as conductor of the Paris Opera and the Radio City Orchestra. When asked how he liked the accusdcs of our theater he expressed his amazement at how well he cduld hear the mistakes.
