Wuterloo’s The dynamic University of Waterloo, “the university of its time”, has explosively expanded to fill most of its south campus-=over 300 acres. The university began in 1957 with the small, $19,000 prefab building which now stands beside Laurel Creek. The building--annex one-now houses the Federation of Student offices, the Campus Shop, the health services and the student newspaper, the Chevron. In 1957 there were 74 students
enrolled in the university& unique cooperative-engineering program. The little gray building sat on a parking lot at Waterloo Lutheran University until construction be gan on this university campus. This week there will be 7,200 students enrolled The building program has errpan= ded in the last three years to include the arts complex, the underground engineering-lecture building, and the biology addition as well as a central services complex.

land promised the tenants full support. Ireland and the studentsmet with a lawyer, R,J. Hobson, who advised them that the notice wasn’t a legal document. The student tenants received another notice July 4 demanding they vacate within 72 hours. Theywere accused of keeping dirty and disorderly apartments and causing disturbances. The students again refuted the charges. When A.N. Abraham, president of Heboto Management Services, which manages the building, toured it with superintendent Austin Streatch, the studentstold him they would fight him in court. On July 8 the students received their third eviction notice in two weeks. Each of the 11 apartments involved received individual letters by special delivery from Abraham’s lawyers, Harper, Villemaire, Gothard and Richter of Waterloo. Each apartment contacted about the individual charges termed them ridiculous or completely false. The students then met with Ireland, who gave them two alterna+tives. Either fight them in court or work out an agreement between yourselves and Abraham,” he said. The students decided in favor of a
compromise because exams were approaching and because it would be difficult to return from work terms for court hearings. Hobson met with the management firm% lawyers to workout an agreement. Its, main points were that students vacate by August 13 (the end of exams), that all claims against the students be released, that deposits be returned with reasonable claims for damage and that the apartments be cleaned immediately. adI have heard nothing from the students involved and assume that the vacating of their apartments went smoothly,” said Ireland. “If there are any further problems the Federation will continue to support those involved.” University president J. G.Hagey complimented the Federation on the way it handled the situation. “1 would like to convey my congratulations to the Federation and Student Council on the way they handled the situation,” he said. “It takes something like this to show that not all university students are culprits. Just because some students can’t conduct themselves in an orderly manner, it does not necessarily apply to all students.”

It has become famous for the co-op plan and the large number of unique research projects on campus. Its post-graduate courses and research have attracted over 1100 students from 59 natiOnS. Originally the engineering faculty of Waterloo College (now Waterloo Lutheran), the university has expanded quickly to four faculties and three schools. The mathematics faculty is the only one in the world. The school of physical education has been active for several years but optometry and architecture begin this year. The optometry school was transplanted lock, stock and barrel to Waterloo from Toronto in June. The university owns 700 acres of land north of Columbia street which will become the north campus. There are no definite plans for it yet. Predicted enrollment for the future is 10,000 by 1970 and 16,000 by 1976.

Student Council had decided earlier that no fraternity would be recognized if it discriminated against students in any way.

The end result of this research will appear in two papers issued by the chairman and his committee plus a revitalized orientation program. The first paper will be on the philosophy of orientation and will include suggestions for continuing orientation for most of the freshman year. The second will be an evaluation of Orientation 67 and recommendations for 1968.
Orientation 67-the ten-day attempt to introduce thisyear’s crop of 2200 freshmen to the U of Whas taken a lot of people a lot of. time and a lot of work. In the end it is the efforts and participation of the students which will make or break the whole effort, according to Stewart Saxe, the charman. Saxe political science 3, has spent his summer reevaluating and reorganizing Orientation, 4’I started out blank as much as one can?’ Saxe first went to the deans of the different faculties, the provost for student affairs and counselling services. After getting their reaction to previous orientations, he questioned them on what should be .done. He then interviewed personnel of Waterloo Lutheran University, the University of Western Ontario and the University of Toronto. During this time he corresponded with ur+ iversiiies in the United States, England and Israel. -He read the full report of adirector of orientation in the States plus general studies of today’s student problems.
In constructing the actual program, Saxe commented, (( Orie& tion 67 is not so much a change in program as a change in attitude.” The committee has tried to erase the immature attitude of the past and replace it with a big-brother relationship. Y?his change was difficult because we didn’t know where to go.” Therefore orientation was defined as “an introduction, for the frosh, to the university community.” The main problems encountered were that orientation is using the same facilities this year for 2200 frosh as it did for l,OOOfroshseveral years ago. None of the committee members were on campus during the summer. The committee wa13 ordered not to lose money.
And finally will the big-brother a& titude work? Around these problems the program will revolve. The fresh will be grouped into tens. Over each will be an archon-Greek for lord or overseer--who stays with his group during all of orientation. A tour of the campus Will start off orientation. The. freshmen are grouped into tens and taken in tow for a tour by an ardron as they leave the gym after registering. Following will be activities, which if all attend, will fill the fro&s first week to capacitv. During all of this week, the ai+ chon is supposed to encourage dis, cussions about their experiences on campus. , All activities except of Monday’s will begin at 4 pm. “The administration has been extremely helpful, especially the Registrar’s office,” said Saxe. “<Anything we requested was immediately dealt with.” Saxe will be available all during orientation and is open to comments from all. QIe has an office in the Federation building, phone local 2534.) &‘During the orientation week my job will be to serve you. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me,”

There is a different type of challenge for the student, Up to now it has been the challenge of organization, while now it is consolidation of pa& work.

President Hagey, what are your pet projects, past present and future, concerning the university?

This was thefir&nationalmeek.= ing of the NSA since Ramparts magazine exposed tha.ttheNSA was almost totally dependent on funds from the US Central Intelligency Agency (CIA) for some of its programs. The CIA, following instructions from ‘dthe top levels of govern merit” , sponsored international programs both through theNSA and through the International Student Conference @SC>, a pro-American international Student forum which is in competition with the International Union of Students @US), heavily supported by thecommunisk countries of E&ern Europe. The American government did not want to have prowestern student groups to be dwarfed on the international scene by much stronger and financially stable IUS. Therefore, the CIA channeled funds into both the ISC and the NSA through CIA front organizations.

There’s going to be a mad, mod version of ‘As you like it* in the Theater of the Arts in November. And the new drama director&residence, Mita ScottHedges., says she might even include a couple of draft-dodgers in it, It was probably a bad morning I picked to talk to Mrs. Hedges. She had finished 16 almost-sleepless weeks rehearsing an original script, she had just moved toCanada from the University of Northern Illinois, she had just lugged boxes and books and bric-a-brac into her new office near the arts theater, and there she had to sit amid the jumble. But if she was tired, it did not show through her bubbling enthusiasm for the drama plans atWaterloo in the coming year. 9Vhen we first proposed dAs you like it) everybody groaned and said oh not another Shakespeare this close to Stratford,” Mrs. Hedges told me. “But looking at the script I decided these were Timothy Leary-typeflowerpeople.

But she was unsure if there would be time for it. Another was a program of stud4‘1 have the rather ent writings. heretical idea that some students are very fine writers”.

It will be an adaptation of the old Greek play %ntigone’ by the French dramatist Jean Anouilh. 4‘We hope this will balance the fun of the first production-but we’re not aiming for sobriety.” The play deals with the centuries+ld problem of the individual’sresponsib~ ity to the state and the problem of finding personal identity. Backing up the two major productions is a series of 45-minute noonhour drama starting November 7. 4JThis will be a sevencourse feast with scenes from some golden ages of theater,” said Mrs. Hedges-d6fromGreekto Elizabethan via Chinese, bringing it up to now and what is to come.** She hoped a greater number of students would feel free to participate in these noonhour scene-s. They are not like a major production requiring a lot of time from cast members. Her pet project is the Green Room Hour,--%n informal discussion-studio - workshop-happening-demonstration hour in which I would like to have the students bring in anything they want related to theater. “It’s a place for students to say, ‘Hey, I want to work on a scene’-to try directing, music, design and see how you fit into the

Mrs. Hedges said she% just had her faith in student writing reaffirmed in this latest productionan original musical called4Aparty at Madeline% place’ at the U.S. national congress of Newman clubs.

(CUP)-Education TORONTO minister William Davis has appointed a government commission to chart the course of university education in the province into the 1
---The commission% role will be to define the future role of all postsecondary institutions-universC ties, community colleges, voc* tional institutes, teachers colleges-and to report back to thegovernment within 18 months. Although it is not a royal corn* mission this special commission’s report is to be published. The commission *will be composed of three full-time and about
12 part-time members, including one student representative. It was the minister’s wish that the commission “clarify....once and for all that no able student in this province will ever be denied the opportunity to proceed to higher education if he has the desire and ability to do %09’. He noted he had not yet complete ly satisfied student demands for more government assistance with the costs of education, but said that student protests over the issue have been carried out responsibly. Referring to protests voiced by the Ontario Union of Students last year he noted: dVhile, like most members of the adult commu@y,
studied I do not necessarily enjoy it or even encourage it+ I accept it and feel an obligation to work with the students in resolving the issues which have led to it. *‘The philosophy voiced by the students may differ somewhat from that held by the general adult community and would take usdown the road to free higher education faster- than our economy would seem to allow.” Judging from past performance Davis has a penchant for commit tees. In a recent speech in the legislature on the subject of Ontar+ io grade 13, he referred to noless than 43 committees, past, present or to be appointed.

Andy Boychuck, a &ad, took a gold Canada in the mara-
and Andy Boychuck won the gold medal in the marathon. George Neeland, science 2, one of Canada’s five top hurdlers, fell in his heat and thus did not qualify for the final. Boychuck, an alumnus, won a gold medal for Canada in the marathon. Having finished fourth in the Boston marathon in the spring he entered the race with high hopes and he completed the 26-m&-385yard race in two hours and 23 minutes. The race was run over the track and through the streets of Winnipeg. Boychuck set a very fast pace for the hot weather and no one really came close to contesting his first-place finish. In the 5,000 meters, Finlay ran with the leaders until about the twomile mark. His pace faltered then and he fell back to fin&h fourth with a time of 14:15.0-not far behind the winning time of 13:47.O. The only other Canadian in the field of 12 finished~ eighth. Studying as well as training took up Finlay’s time at the games. He had been forced to reschedule two of his exams, and had to write one of his finals in Toronto when he returned. Back on campus, Finlay said he was discouraged with his fourth finish but is looking forward now to the d68 Olympics in Mexico. He hopes to go to Laramie, Wyoming, next May where he will train at 7,000 feet. This will prepare him for the high altitude of Mexico. His present goal is to break Bruce Kidd% three-mile recordin the o&AA. At the International Track at the CNE in late August, Finlay set a blistering pace in the mile event and finished in third place with a new personal best of 404.0. In the same meet George Neeland came second in the hurdies against tough competition. ~‘Terrificf’ Finlay described the Pan-Ams and theway Winnipeg accepted the games, Winnipeg people were very friendly and&e stands were forever overflowing and events sold out,” he said. “At the opening ceremony the Witipeg Stadium was jammed tight with spectators even though it was pouring rain. The food was very good and Winnipeg did a fine job in organizing its first big meet.” On the whole he felt the Canadian team was better overall but that the team sports were the weak point in Canadian hopes to achieve success in the athletic field at the international level. Canada’s hasketball team was even beat by Mexice, who had been in turn beaten earlier in the year by the University of Wyoming, a relatively small university. V

Remain independent is WW’s final choice Waterloo Lutheran University will remain an independent churchaffiied college. The reorganization drive, begun early this summer at Lutheran, stopped short of affiliation with the University of Waterloo when Lutheran% board of governors reaffirmed the school’s status at a special meeting two weeks ago, The board made the unanimous decision after hearing a day-long report from the Chicago consulting firm Booz, Allen and Hamilton, which has completed a five-month study of the university. The possibility of federation with U of W arose when the federal government cut off grants to church-related institutions. Lutheran was faced with independence as a small, financially weak college. In June the province announced a policy to replace these lost federal grants. In a report issued after the meeting, Lutheran% board said it was convinced that Lutheran could continue its operation on a sound fir+ an&al basis. &$Its rapid develop nlent as a relatively smallinstitution offering quality education on a personalized basis can be continued within the limits of the lib eral-arts program+” said the report.

Dr, Herman Overgaard resigned as director of the business and economics school. Frank Peters replaced Dr. Schaus and was appointed acting academic vice-president; Dr, Fred Speckeen, vice-president for educational services; and Miss Tamara Giesbrecht, vice-president controller. Dr. Henry Endress was moved up from vice president to acting president for a year and Prof. Glenn Carroll replaced Overgaard. Both Peters and Carroll are popular with their colleagues and the students. WLU is a combination of the Lutheran seminary and Waterloo University College, the arts and science f acuity. The seminary was established in 1911 ad the Waterloo College of Arts three years later. From 1925 to 1960 Waterloo College was affiliated with the University of Western Ontario. In 1959 the WLU act was passed combining the seminary and Waterloo College into Waterloo Lutheran University. In May 1960 the Lutheran board of governors voted to federate with the University of Waterloo. The next month the Lutheran synod rejected the move. Eight members of the board of governors and seven faculty resigned immediately. Schaus was a central figure in the conflict and had led the group opposing federation.

According to Harry Strauss, of Star Men’s Shop in Kitchener, “We’re distinguishing the boys from the girls again.” Local clothiers predict the big colors this fall will be pumpkin and pine.

housing shortage across Canada
OTTAWA (CUP)--From coastto coast this month students returning to university have hit a common barrier 4 there is nowhere to live. The student housing problem i 1s not simply a repeat of previous year’s complaints of lack of a. few beds. It’s panic because students are simply not able to find a bed at all. Worst hit are those studying in Montreal. McGill+ with just over 1,300 residence beds, has more then 4,000 out-of-town studentsi the University of Montreal is in the same situation, and SirGeorge Williams, with about GO00 out-oftown students, has no residences at all. And Expo is taking up all outside housing until the fair ends in October. To a lesser degree the same problem exists all over the country. With the influx of students into university in recent years most of the money has been devoted to the development of academic facilities and hiring staff* and littlehas been channelled into student housing, The result?

home and materialism is understandable when one considers that a nice home, two cars, three televisions and a college education are what are considered success in this life. And the hippy philosophy is onewhich appeals to the young, first because basltally It caters to the self, and secondly because in its purest form it can appeal to the ideals of the young in a way big-business never can. Hippies believe in loving-oneself, one’s neighbour, the fuzz, the mayor who is trying to get rid of one, anyone and everyone. They do not want to own the world, they want to be allowed to live the way they want. They hold a belief which is a mixture of Christianity at its mostprimitive, Buddhism, and Communism. The Diggers, an organization run by active hippies, provides food, clothing and money for their less resourceful bretheren. Many of these work part time, often with the post office so they can survive and so they can buy the drugs which are a necessary part But work is, not of the whole hippy set-up. the be all and end all of their existence. But to parents, municipal and government authorities, and the “straight” people the whole business seems ridiculOUS, a waste of time and a nuisance, They feel the flower people are irresponsible, dirty and dangerous.

OTTAWA (CUP)--Love was the word summer, love and flower power. Hippyism, which until this spring was a small cult confined to the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco and the Greenwich Village area of NewYork&asspread with astonishing rapidity across the States and Canada. The long-haired, rather dirty, bangled and beaded, psychedelic hippy preaching the philosophy of love, peace and joy, has become one of the major news stories of the year, with every reputable magazine, and quite a few disreputable ones, giving this new breed extensive coverage. Toronto’s establishment Globe and Mail has covered every love-in, paint-in, demonstration and protest held by the Yorkville hippies over the summer. Both Ottawa papers covered the hippy versus TheMall merchants fight in great detail. MacLean’s supported the use of hippies in the Company of Young Canadians In Victoria and elsewhere. But hippies are more than good surnmer copy. They are an important manifestation of the growing dislike and dlstrust of today’s society by the young, the so-called 44majority generation,” The desire to “tune inanddrop out’* and get away from the pressures of school, this

And within eight hours of bail being given, Depoe had been arrested again, in a fracas which occurred between police and hippies after a love-in in Queen’s Park to his release. Along with 51 celebtie others, he had been creating yet another disturbance. A volley of missiles during the various demonstrations showed that the Yorkville hippies are not strict adherents of the hippie philosophy. While flowers are acceptable, apples and POP cans thrown at police are considered unorthodox. Accusations of police brutality are being investigated. Hippies claim they were man-handled, and at least one hippie, Duke Taylor, has his hand in a cast, from a heavy police boot.

This is the first in a series of independent columns by our staff ideolog on political matters of interest to students. Actually we had to let him play Lippmann since he was threatening to burn down the office.
One of the most difficult tasks facing student newspapers is co* veying political observations to students. I use the word observation rather than the word news, since b’news” assumes the reader has definite views on the reported situation. The political observer sesks to shape the opinions of his readers. In doing so, he wishes. to provide the reader with aframework for viewing events. It is my hope that this column will provide such a framework. This column will provide a forum for such controv&sial issues as Vietnam and student politicsa touchy subject in past, years. This column will probably take on a brief, almost gossipy format like such columns as ‘The periscope’ in newsweek and *TRB’ in the New Republic. Each week I hope to comment on the political situation-student or other-locally, nationally and & ternatlonally. I am anxious to learn how you react to this column and any feedback will be appreciated. m This week’s Chevron isfilled with advice for freshmen. I too have some words of dubious wisdom on the subject of involvement. There are students who come to y.niversity seeking political involvement and expecting to enter & atmosphere of political awareness. They are sadly disappointed because they do not know where to look. The worst mistake freshmen make is to go to one of the navelgazing political clubs on campus. The New Democratic youth organ&&ion on campus, unfortunately, was a flop last year. The meetings were attended by a handful of (d card-carrying” old faithfuls and a few wishywashy liberals. The club even tried to avoidbeing political by corni& on as a Study group. The Young Progressive Conservatives suffers from its stars. The group had a number of highly active people but did not make an impact with its ideas. Is the club viable without its uebermensch? I am not too familiar with the
young IAmals. The less saidthe better. Nor do I know where the 1OCa.l Communist cell is hiding out. Copies of Ma.oTse-tung’ s little red book of quotations are avail able at the campus bookstore. Only a few campus groups offer the student involvement in social and political action. One of these is The Chevron. Chevron news types are always covering local politics. Last year, three former paper people were elected to Student Council, up one from the year before. One of the best ways to learn the ropes is to work for one of the boards of Student Council. A good prospect this year is the domestic commission of the board of external relations which should be involved in some interesting social-action projects, One club that may be going places this year is the Student Christian Movement. They are working on some interesting projects such as a drop-in center forhighschoolera and seminars on higher education. You can enjoy this club if you don? let the name frighten you. After all, it once was a Comm+t-front organization. Its staff secretary is Mrs. Marg Dyment (57G9981). Starting at the bottom is one good way of learning.

First, none of the people who helped in the bookstore episode or the library episode were living in the Co-op. Unfortunately,people made that assumption. The second Inaccuracy takesthe form of the misleading impression that the engineering student was
allied with the Toad and that the Toad instigated the trade. pay for their own uniforms. The As far as the Toad knows, after the student had indicated he-might be able to trace the jacket, a member of the university policing force requested him to do so explaining that university copshad to student at that point did NOT know who had the jacket, but after some searching, was able to contact the Toad. The student explained that he was trying to help the cop to the Toad, who demanded assurance that he try to obtain one suitcase in, return, and then turned over the jacket. Needless to say, the student was picked up for possession of stolen goods and is now in danger of expulsion, by the cops he was trying to help. THE TOAD
