Secrecy- rejected by
by Bill Webb Chevron staff
Student council is getting tough about the adminisfration andfaculty bawlking at changes in university government. Monday night at a regular meeting councillors re jetted secrecy of the study committee on university government. Then they raked the faculty ass01 ciation% brief to the committee over the coals. Federation president Steve Ireland was mandated by council to draft a letter to be sent to Cm rnau Batke vice-president, univeti sity development, advising him of council% intention to bring a tape recorder to the next meeting in order to make public the proceedings of the committee; and secondly, conveying to the committee, through Dr. Batke, council’s dissatisfaction with the attitudes and interest shown by com-
mittee members in their task. In addition copies of the faculty brief association to the committee will be distributed to junior faculty members along with a short council critique. A special council meeting Monday night will discuss the result’s of the student committee memb ers’ actions at the meeting Monday afternoon. _ The study committee was formed a year ago to consider briefs __-__--_---_---_--------Page 3 Full text of letter Full text of brief Page 10 Page 79 Editorial _____-_--__-------------and pass on recommendations to the senate on the future goals and structures of the university6 The Federation is represented by Ireland, Stephen Flott, grad history, and Brian Iler, civil 3B,presented
an original brief in May. The one presented by the faculty association Monday is the only other 0~ iginal brief to appear before the committee.
Council debated the secrecy of committee meetings and the faculty brief for five hours. They also expressed disappointment with the other members of the committee. Stewart Saxe, arts rep, attacked the brief and the committee on three counts. He was displeased with the committee’s decision to hold allfuture meetings behind closed doors. Finally, he said the faculty association brief was an unacceptable piece of work comparable to Russian toilet paper. Steve Flott, grad history, called the brief unprincipled and said ((its recom\mendations don’t flow

from any philosophy.” He added that the logic was faulty. Brian Iler, engineering rep, agreed with Flott and added that he was “flabbergasted at the quality of the paper” considering the importance of the subject. William Scott, provost for student affairs, agreed with the students and warned them of thetremendous apathy among the committee members toward what they were dealing with. He saidthe Federation brief was “much more carefully drafted? and was tra more logical document? He also wondered at the committee% lack of interest. Council contrasted the 17 briefs prepared by various faculty groups for the Macpherson report at the University of Toronto with the one brief presented here. In light of this, Ireland criticized university vice-president Ted Batke, chairman of the committee, who said the committee now had all the working papers necessary to make a report to the senate. Council~s opinion was that the committee was a sham, and that decisions on recommendations had already been made without student consultation. Ireland also criticized the fatulty and administration for failing to make proper contributions to conferences at other universities. He expressed his concern over the image this university has elsewhere and said, ;&we’re really coming across wishy-washy, because they’re just not saying anything.* Ron Rumm, science rep, suggested a one-day boycott of classes, with an open teach-in on university government to educate students on the importance of the issues at stake. Flott suggested that co un c i 1
stays closed A major move by students for a more democratic university was rebuffed Monday by the university study committee on university government. The three students on the committee asked that all further meetings be opened to the public. The committee voted eight to three with two abstentions to keep the committee closed, The committee met openly at 3 Monday to receive the faculty association brief on university government. At the end of the meeting, two of student representatives, Steve Ireland and Steve Flott moved that all future meetings be opened to the public and the press because there were no lecturers, junior faculty or assistant professors on the committee. Great difficulty was encountered by the students in putting the motion on the floor, since Ted Batke, chairman of the committee, began speaking against the motion before Ireland’s motion was sect onded.
Dean McBryde of science opposed the motion on the grounds that open discussion would inhibit the committee, and George Atkinson of the faculty association stab ed that the members would be prevented from giving true examples of wrongdoing or inefficiency in university government. The question was hurridly put, and only the three students, Steve Ireland, president of the fedem tion of students, Steve Flott, grad history, and Brian Iler, Civil 3B, voted for the openess motion. Eight committee members voted against the motion and three abstained= chairman Batke; provost William Scott who forgot to vote for the students motion; and Lawrence Haworth of the philosophy department who felt that he was not able to vote since he had only recent+ ly been elected to the committee. The committee normally has a membership of 26. Among the 12 members absent were president J. G. Hagey and registrar C.T.
Boyes who were both i& vice presidents Petch and Adlington, Deans Cross (graduate), Minas (arts), Sherbourne (engineering) and Sprott (mathematics) and two members from the board ofgovernors. The open meeting was the second that the committee has held. Faculty, students and staff were welcome. Vice-president for university planning, T. L. Batke commented that with this, the second major brief to be received,” We’ve got all the briefs we need.” Questions on the faculty brief were fielded by its parent, At&nson. Wyn Rees, principal of Renison College, blasted the brief for “fragmentation by narrow-minded departments. Who will discipline the departments.” Ireland also criticized the a-. mount of power put in the hands of the department as did Dean McBryde, -

After 45 minutes of discussion it was decided that sufficientquestioning had taken place. The committee decided that they would meet weekly on Mondays. .An agenda covering topics for future meetings as drawn up by the steering committee was approved. The members will consider membership in the university community, the nature of governing bodies, their composition, related bodies, the substructure, openness in university bodies, and university appointments. It was at this point that the stw dents introduced their motion to open uP the meeting. President Steve Ireland later expressed SU* Prise at Dr. Batke’s agitation at the motion. Notice of motion had been given to the chairman some days previous to the meeting.
publish and distribute its own“open public statement of our deep disenchantment with the committee”. He said it might even be %ecessary to name names” of those committee members council felt were incompetent or disinterested~ even if it meant putting Flott’ s MA degree on the line. ’ He said that since committee members had not yet been sworn to secrecy he felt completely free to report to the public on the meetings. Peter Warrian and Tom Patterson, executive board members, presented a motion calling for council representatives to refuse to participate in closed committee meetings. They also wished to express council’ s frustration with the committee’s work. Former council president, Mike Sheppard, in supporting the motion, reminded council of its obligation to follow last winter’s standing resolution that council not take part in closed meetings. Sheppard agreed with the ideaof a teach-in, but warned of the difficulty in getting students interested enough to make the boycott successful. “It must work tremendously or we’ll have the biggest bloody flop in history,” Ireland warned that even the faculty agreed that “this is an antiintellectual campus,” and that dZthere are not really that many radica.ls.$’
Provost Scott, when asked his views, said it was not his position to ((put out the fire in the woods,” but that he wondered if itwouldnot be possible to attain the council% goals right within the committee by sticking with it. Saxe retorted with %ure Pllbet on Chicken Little every time tool “He warned council that “Big Brother isn’t very far away. 1984 is almost here, in fact it willprobably be here in 1974.” Saxe advised against ill-prepared precipitant action, and suggested council aim for a confrontation with&e %orporate elite” in the university next February. Scott rose to inquire into the IX++ ture of the encounter and of its pupose. “What are you going to do?What are you hoping to -accomplish? Scott’s question could not be answered immediately because the councillors were forced to leave the high emotion in the St. Paul’s refectory at 1 am. The walk down the hill to the Federation building seemed to cool down the councfflors. The discussion there, as the meeting reconvened, was kept at a lower pitch. Saxe said the goal of the l‘quiet revolution would be the creationof a completely free society. C reative arts board chairman Dave Blaney cautioned council to make a step in the right direction. “Don’t aim too high or students willbe left behind and alienated,” he said.

ents MONTEAL (CUP)--An ordinary bookstore sit-inat Sir George Williams University turned into a and major strike by students faculty. On Wednesday the students staged a simple sit-in at thebookstore to protest. the high cost of texts and the subsequent allocation of $90,000 profit to the athletic department. The students wanted: -A joint committee of students s faculty and admini&ration to be responsible for the bookstore’s operation. -A discount of ten percent for trade books and five percent for texts. -Bookstore profits turned over to the student union for use in cocurricular programs. -Bookstore accounts made public. -Time-Life inserts removed from all texts. These demands were presented to the administration and William the university treasurer, Reay, said. “Who’s running this university anyway?” Negotiations at this point turned off and students organized a sleep-in of hundred and twenty-five students. Student council held a special 3 a.m. Thursday morning and endorsed an all-day strike-teach-in. Later in the morning the faculty association met and backed up the students demand.

“The Co-op is doing what the province should be doing--providing student housing now,” said Prof. William Scott, provost for student affairs, after the announcement of Waterloo Co-ops second building project on Phillip Street. This project was first approved by the general membership of the Co-op in January 1967. At that time a syndicate was formed consisting of the Toronto Co-op, Waterloo Cooperative Residences Inc., the University of Waterloo, architects and consultants, to develop and build the project.
The project will be built on Phillip St. between University Ave. The project will and Columbia. consist of four four-storey residences for single students and four three-storey apartments for married students. It will supply spaces for 272 students and 64 apartment units. With this addition Co-op there will have 600 spaces for 600 students making the Co-op the second largest university resience in Waterloo.

This is the text of a letter sent to all the members of the University of Waterloo study committee oq university governmen t by the student representatives on the committee. By means of this open letter we, t.le student representatives to the University of Waterloo committee on the study of university government, wish to publicly voice our great disappointment with the attitude of the other members of the committee, the manner in which aiscussion takes place, and in particular, the type of tliscussion which occurred at last meeting of the committee held on October 30. The Student’s Council of the Federation of Stugents accepted membership on this committee as of September 20, its 1966, .2,nd in dGing so expected appointees to participate inafrank,honest ltiscussion of the university governins structure and to join in recommending chan;;es in tiat structure.

of this attitude at the last meeting of the committee demands that we state our extreme disappointment. We would first call to your attention the attendance. Of the 26-man committee, 14 were present. The absentees included wo of the three board of governors members, four of the five deans, and two vice-presidents. The absence of the latter two groups is particularly worthy of note.

university and we suspect their absence indicates a disdain for the official task of the committee because the more relevant decisions are being made elsewhere, as illustrated by the current reorganization in the higher levels of the administration which have been undertaken without regard for the existence of this committee. We feel that the attitude of the chairman was not contiucive to discussion as he over-directed the discussion, subtly attempted todiscouragequestions from the student representatives and, although previously infrrmed of the motion on openness
of committee meetings, could not disassociate himself from the discussion and could not conceal his anger. We are most disappointed that the motion to continue holding open meetings was defeated, especially since the committee members refuse toaddress themP selves to the arguments presented, While recognizing that we are at fault in that we did not adequately pursue some points raised by other committee members, we feared that we would appear obnoxious and thus prejudice our ability to communicate our ideas to them. Nevertheless, we wish to state that it was our feeling that the members’ minds were not open to any discussion of the topic. May we repeat for the benefit of those committee members not present that it is our belief that the deliberations of the committee are of such importance to all members of the university that ati must be able to witness the thinking, the debate and the decision-making about the recommendations that will go on. We feel it is only through open meetings that the views of the constituents of the
representatives to the committee We are also concerned that all but the senior faculty have been ignored in the faculty re!presentation on the commit tee. We therefore inform the committee that after careful consideration by the Students’ Council Monday night, we shall continue to serve as student representatives to the committee but we must state that we cannot bold the content of the deliberations in secret, and to assure that all reports to our constituents will be accurate, we intend to record tile discussions on tape. We hope that after carefulconsideration some of the members of the committee will request reconsideration of the motion on open meetings, and the the committee will decide to function in a truly open, honest and democratic manner. We hope too that it will become the real forum for discussion of all changes in the university’s governing structure. STEPHEN P. FLOTT BRIAN E, ILER STEPHEN W. IRELAND

The union, at American colleges, is a building which attempts to provide cultural social and recreational program in order to “.make free-time activity a cooperative effort with study in education? U of w’s campus center, now under construction, will be comparable. Approximately 250 students and faculty delegates from Ontario, Quebec and New York state exchanged ideas on such programs at this year’s conference. Paul Gerster, assistant to the provost and director of the campus center at U of W, was introduced to the conference as a regional coordinator between American and Canadian student unions. Delegates to the conference asked Gerster many questions aboutU of W’s residence Village. Villagers have privileges which theAmericans are still trying to introduce into their residences. American students also remarked about the amount of responsibility taken by Canadian students on campus. They said organization in the American system is done by administrative staffs. Students have little authority or responsibility on many campuses. Other speakers included Dr. Vincent Nowlis, a psychology professor at the University of Rochester who collaborated with Dr.

EYES RlGHT: comment
In response to recent deft wing activit.i.es in the world, in Canada, and on university campuses, I feel it is time an accurate, truthful view is presented. To that end I shall publish a weekly dissertation on political activity affecting the university student. rk ** This past month many students have advocated representation on university bodies. Do they deserve such concessions? I think not. These students who press for such participation are really not interested in the student body. They want power for themselves. They are concerned with furthering the ideals of themselves and their own tiny
group. What does the average student care about or need from a senate or board of governors? The main concern andduty
of the student isto attend classes and study to get an education. ’ The men on university governing bodies are responsible and capable in their fields. Many have run a very successful business- for years. They know administration. The senate concerns itself with affairs of academics and granting of degrees. The board of governors, the supreme body at all universities, has duties of no , concern to the student. They determine staff, salary and the general overseeing of students. * * * Recently one of the most ludicrous sights in the history of this university took place. That absurd g’peace march)’ held in conjunction FithI Communist-led marches around the free world. What more laughable sight could one behold than a bunch of affluent, wellclothed, university sucklings walking down King Street, embarassing the great majority of students with insipid, well-worn
Communist phrases printed on posterboard placards? One Kitchener man summed up the situation excellently: ((They bring a great deal of credit and revenue to the city. But how can you respect them when they start marching against our best neighbor and trading partner?” They fail to look attheother side.The Chinese and Russians are supporting a Communist invasion. This invasion has prevented the development of South Vietnam into an emerging nation--throwing it back instead into the vortexof chaoswhich warfare causes. No one can deny that war kills innocent people. No war doesn% These are the sacrifices t&t must be made to defend freedom. Do we blame the British for the huge plane raids to Hamburg and Dresden? They killed innocent people also. Do we blame the Americans for killing Japanese women and children in B-29 raids over the Japanese islands? Of course not. This is war.
Every once and a while one sees CfJIltrived photos purporting to show A rnerican atrocities. Even if one gives the point that this is a real picture it is often forgotten that the so-called National Liberation F rant-a euphemistic title for a hard core of killers-is famed for its torture tactics and Nazi-like techniques. Bowels strung out 10 to 15 feet are not Eyes burned out aren’t a pretty sight. pretty. The sight of a’ 12-year-old girl looking like she’s past middle age isn’t pretty. Yet these are all proven Cong tactics. Where are the university students carrying ‘<Stop the Viet Cong torture” and the “Gong, get out of Bietnam$’ signs? Where are they? Where are they? Or don’t leftwing killings and atrocities matter? I suggest to these members of the academic community to sit down and attempt to see both sides. This is the sign of a true academic. 4

The s&e cynical edge to the songs. one was experiencing And yet, something. One sensed theappearante of someone gifted. Phil Ochs used to be angry. He used to hit out at everything even remotely connected with theEstablishment, with the military, or with the rigid and class-conscience society in which he lived. Today he still strikes these targets but more subtlety. One of his songs’ “The war is his totalloss over, ” demonstrates of faith in the government of the USA. Feeling that all hope of an end to the Vietnamese war is gone he wrote a song to show what his group of friends have done. They have. simply declared the war over. “One of us must be insane. Now I declare the war is Over, It’s over.” A little later in the song one sees some of his type of reasoning coming through. There apparently is no meaningful way to show one’s opposition to the war so perhaps, “Treason might beworth a try,” Two of his older tunes brought on the most response from the 700 or so people at Seagram’s Stadium* His quiet “Changes” was sung to a hushed audience which had continually requested it. “I ain’t a marchin’ anymore” the lead tune from one of his albums’

So it is with this account of one man’s role in the second world war. This autobiography follows Alan Easton through the various commands he held as part of Canada’s anti-submarine forces. The book begins with an almost
the At/antic comic account of the shortcomings of the author’s first ship, HMCS Baddeck, a ship which never could seem to do anything right. It continues with a nighttime naval encounter with German naval forces off Ushant. In between, there is an account of hardships, lost sleep, lost ships and the few occasions when the escort vessels could close with their elusive underwater enemies. This book provides a wellwritten account of a bitterly contested field of battle.

PDQ by Henzel
Slightly fantastic! That’s the only way to describe the performance given in the Theater of the Arts Thursday evening. The production, PDQ Bach was a humorous study of Bach% contributions to music. To say that these contributions were a bit unorthodox would be an extreme understatement. The evening’s format was quite simple. Professor Schieokele of Southern North Dakota at Hoople would introduce the particular piece of music, and the musicians would then attempt. to play it, added of course by Professor Schickel@ s active participation. The first musical presentation was Serenade in D Major for Devious Instruments (~3644-36). It was here that we were first introduced to the musical intensity of Professor Schickele as he performed on the Windbreaker. Aside from the normal instruments, such as slide whistles, kazoos, and a shower hose, we were entertained A tromboon is a by a tromboon, cross between a trombone and a bassoon, encompassing the disadvantages of both. We were then treated to an original composition by Professor Schieckele. This was the Unbegun Symphony, so called because “1 was born too late to write the first two movements.‘$ The only word to describe this is plagiarism Quite simply, the Professor took two known pieces of music and played them simultaneously, one on strings and the other on horns and woodwinds. The final piece before the inter-
mission was Pervertmento for Bagpipes, Bicycle and Baloons (~66). The first featured per-for+ mer was Donald Vareller on bagpipes. Of him, I can only say that his cheeks were in superb form. Also featured was Professor Schickele, in a magnificent performance on the vicycle, playing both the dynamo siren andthehandle bar as a horn. An added highlight was the use of balloons to their fullest musical potential, The second half of the evening was occupied by two presentations, the first of which wasGross Concerto for Diveno Flutes (s-2) Here again we had Professor Schickele as the featured arti& playing instruments ranging from a nose hore, through a slide whisr fle to a left-handed sewer-pipeflute. The fiqal piece was Cantata: QIphigenia in Brooklytis @53,162). A relatively late piece of Mr. Bach it included, among other things, a bit of light operetta and Professor Schickele on wine bottle. ” You may be wondering as to what exactly was going on, considering the wonderful names the bits of music had, and the fascinating instruments used. Well, the whole thing was a laugh, a beautiful bit of burlesque. involved were exThe players tremely professional.

was the ending. It seemed as if, having run out of things to do, the performers straggled off the stage.
Everything happened at the grad society-sponsored underground film happening which was appropriately buried in the underground engineering lecture building. In the amphitheatre there was psychedelic music (above) with a gogo dancer and slides projected on the screen behind the musicians. Emshwiller’s Relativity plus The sins of the fleshapoids were shown.
Aside from this one minorfault, the performance was slick, entertaining, humorous, just enjoyable.
‘Big land’ Dec. i 7
The premiere performance of The Big Land (Dec. 1, 2, 3) willbe the work of many groups and-individuals, each with specific functions. The caliber of this performance will depend on how well the people involved can work together, and fulfil1 their respective roles. To these ends, several rehearsals each week are taking place. (Drop into AL 113 almost any evening for a preview.) The orchestra introduces the oratorio vigorously and dramatically; forecasting things to come. It even makes a subtle re ference to our national anthem, indicating to those perceptive enough to catch it, the theme of The Big Land. (In case the title hasn’t already given it away.) Throughout, the orchestra provides int reductions, accompaniment, and running commentary. Its sounds are often suggestive: the second movement is born in and out on a horn solo - a call to the wilderness. The movement itself concerns the clearing of bush and the settling of this wilderness. With the words “1 bend muscle and brow for the base instruments my young”, play low octaves, minor intervals apart: can you not feel the exertion, the strain of muscles, the sweat on the brow? And then DISSONANCE: what better way to express the ‘%lash of Empires”? The chorus speaks for all the pioneers: of the excitement of the new and challenging, of the beauty of the untouched land and waters, Eriday,

But it is the individual, and not man collectively, who begins to doubt, to question his actions, his country, his fellow man. The soloists, therefore, tell of the fear which accompanied the anticipation and excitement mentioned by the chorus; of the remembrances of the old land; of the disillusionment upon discovering that old age, death, pestilence and war have followed them even to this, their Eden; of the realization that “We have been bartered; the world is not new”.

How ought the university to be set up? For the past year, a committee of the U of W senate has been studying this problem? The Federation oj’students presented itsideas to the committee in a brief, published in the Chevron on May 12. Here is the full text of the faculty association ‘s brieji presented to the committee on Monday. The briej’ was prepared for the association by ProjI George Atkinson of the chemistry departnler1 t. PREFACE When the University of Waterloo committee to study university government was formed, the faculty association was asked to name a representativetoit. Dr, George F. Atkinson of the chemistry department was named, and the association then invited Dr, Atkinson to form a faculty committee on university government to inform and advise it on matters before the university committee. This brief has been drawn up by that faculty committee and has been approved by the executive of the faculty association. The brief does not offer a comprehensive plan for a utopian government system, but points to a number of specific areas in which the committee senses some widespread. desire for- change. Faculty members are traditionally individualistic, and it should not be hard to produce at least one supporter and one, opponent for each point touched upon in this document. In such a presentation, genera&&on and compression are both bound to blur shades of meaning which many feel to be important. The committee notes without apology that this has undoubtedly happened in this brief.
1. The board of governors to be replaced by a university council of more diversified character so that the corporate body in the university can act on a more integrated view of both fiscal and academic consequences of its decisions. 2. The senateto be relieved of being representative of certain special groups outside the university; to contain neither students nor newly-arrivedfaculty members; to be obliged to receive representations from the student body concerning the common interests of all students. 3. The faculty councilti to be given increasedpowers of representation before higher bodies of government; and possibly to be limited in size. 4, The academic department to be given a more recognized status in the pattern of government; and to be encouraged to include students in its deliberative mechanisms, 5. Service departments to issue annual reports for scrutiny throughout the university; to be allowed sab batical-like leaves toward improvement of their operations. 6. Representation of teaching and research interests by persons without administrative responsibilities to be increased on the operations council. 7. A standing committee of the senate to be created to reappraise the total operations and effectiveness of service departments. 8, A university ombudsman to be named on atenured term basis to examine and report on complaints of abuse of power by individuals or groups within the university, whether administrative, academic or student. 9. Advisory committees of administration, faculty and students to be appointed to consult with the registrar and the provost concerning the operation of their offices. I

4. For terms of two years: two members elected by the student body, two members elected by the faculty. We propose that this group assume the powers and duties of the board of governors. That is, this body would become the’ corporate entity “The University of Waterloo".
This is our thinking about the composition of the university Council: The members appointed by the Lieutenant-Governorin-Council represent the interest of the province in its expenditures in the university and in the national articulation of its educational system. It might not be amiss for one to be a professional educator from elsewhere in the province, and the other a businessman. The members elected by the students represent the paramount interest in securing an appropriate and worthwhile education which must exist among those spending their time and money to obtain it. We hope the presence of student representative will keep before council the idealism which characterizes undergraduates. We believe sharing fiscal responsibility for carrying those ideals into reality will temper the radicalism often pointed out as an argument for denying students representation at the level of ultimate decision. We suggest that reports of the inevitable compromises between ideals and feasibility will be most acceptable if carried back to the students by their own spokesmen. The mem;bers elected by the faculty serve a rather parallel role to the student representatives. Collectively, the faculty have done a lot of thinking about education, both in terms of “nuts and bolts” and of general philThey are the working group which must fulfil o so&y. the policies established with the resources supplied. It is often overlooked that the faculty are frequently invited to deliberate and advise on education and other policies and practices outside the university. Are they not even better equipped to do so within it? The groups representing the senate and the community are made to balance each other. On paper, the university is committed to the principle that policies are clearly either fiscal or academic, and can thus be dealt with by separate bodies. It is our contention that few decisions of any nature in the university fail to have both fiscal and academic consequences, and indeed both fiscal and academic causes. It seems more appropriate to facilitiate this mingling of concerns by placing repre sentatives conversant with each of these aspects on the council. The principal officers of the university are included because of the value of their day-to-day knowledge of administrative matters in achieving speedy and efficient conduct of the council’s business. It should be noted that alumni are not explicitly represented. The present board already contains one alumnus, and in course of time we see no problem in alumni being named to council either as representatives of the community or of the senate.
It has been suggested to us thattheuniversity enters into considerable business dealing with companies represented on the present board of governors. This situation is not unique to Waterloo, or indeedtouniversities. It is not always avoidable. If an officer of the Bell Telephone
Company sits on the board, from whom shall telephone service? Nonetheless, it seems best that the council crate under the formal constraint that at a members be obliged to declare themselves in interest and abstain from both the discussion when the council is concerned with contracts companies.

The senate is the senior body for academic discu. sion and policy rationalizing in the university. It shov!c continue to consist of groups of representatives fromthr academic administration, the faculties and schools, an the federated and affiliated colleges as at present. WC
‘We do not recommend student membership on the senate. This is not a slight to students...’ would drop from it the representatives for two segments o the community-the highschool principals and the alumni and urge that they be represented in the council instead We do not recommend student membership on tnl senate. This is not to be interpreted as a slight to stud ents, for we would equally not recommend that a facult, member who has newly joined the university be appointc to the senate. In our opinion, the substantial amounts c work and thought required for properly fulfilling the dut ies of a senator can only properly be superimposed o persons who have become generally aware of theuniver sity’ s ways and policies, and particularly informed c many of its detailed procedures and methods. Even th wise revolutionary sets himself to become fully conver sant with that which he would overthrow, We do suggest that a stated duty of the senate be “t receive and discuss with representatives of the studer body any written submission on matters considered by th Federation of Students to affect the welfare of the studer body, and to* transmit to the council or other appropriat bodies such submissions with comments and recommen dations.” It is often said the senate is too full of persons bear ing administrative responsibilities. We offer as a remed that a simple majority of senators at any time should nc_ hold administrative posts of the level of department chair man or higher.
This body was formerly a main forum of debate fo the members of the faculty. At present, the growth c the university is converting faculty councils more an more and more into mini-senates-receivers of report and auditors of speeches. The effective work is no! carried out in committees. We recommend the preserving faculty councils a forums in which the labors of committees can be scrutin ized and challenged if found wanting in substance o careless in detail. We urge that faculty councils be give the explicit power to place expressions of their views, 0
I they won9 questions to which they seek answers before the senate or other appropriate higher bodies. We raise the question whether faculty councils would be more usefulifthey were reduced in size, One approach would be to limit membership to assistant professors who have been one year with the university and all faculty of ltigher rank. This is offered by way of example, not of recommendation.
Where in the university does the individual faculty member feel he has a voice inpolicymaking? .Five years ago the answer was probably inhis faculty council. Today the forum for reconciling conflicting viewpoints on substantive issues has come to be the academicdepartment. In addition the department exists as a administrative en-
‘Departvents should incorporate student members into their structures as they see fit’ tity for budgeting, and as a body responsible for organizing the undergraduate curriculum and translating it into day-to-day instruction. It will be recognized that these are important functions. We suggest that the academic department and its role be examined carefully in a review of university government. We propose formally delegating to the department: 1. The right to place before the dean of the faculty the name of their colleague whom they desire to see as chairman. The right to arrive at that name by a method of their choice. The right to request the removal-of an incumbent chairman for due cause clearly substantiated. 2. The right to discuss and consider the areas and levels at which new faculty appointments are required. 3. The right to determine major issues regarding undergraduate curriculum and instruction for students with major or honors specialization in the department9s field. 4. The right to convey to higher levelsof government smements, questions and requests which in the department’s opinion relate to the performance of its duties, and to receive due acknowledgement and replies. 5. The right to draw up a constitutional document or written set of rules to facilitate the carrying out of its duties and implementation of its rights. @‘or example the philosophy department% constitution). This proposal assumes a department is in goodacademic health and finds it possible to arrive at decisions. The more indecisive or violently divided a department finds itself, the more it invites its,chairman or dean to act without consultation when action isneeded. We do not seek to prevent such unilateral action, but we suggest that the more often it seems necessary, the more the administrator involved should ask such questions as: Is the department too large to be an effective forum? Is its division of interests or opinions a sign of the need for formal creation of smaller units? Is it being given adequate notice and information for reaching realistic decisions? Is it lacking leadership in setting basic policies and philosophies? We recommend that departments be encouraged to incorporate student members into their inter&l committee structures as they see fit. We further recommend that sue h student members be eligible to be sent for -7ard as part of a delegation to any higher level of u .versity government or any committee. Thus, if a department chooses, it might send a student who sits on its curriculum committee to make a presentation before faculty council or its committees. Naturally, the provision for such formal student participation in departmental planning should not be taken to preclude the traditional recourses such as student deputations coming to discuss matters with the department chairman. If students were guaranteed participation in university government at one level only, we suggestthat the
These include office services, and the office work. personnel, physical-plant and planning, business, purchasing and systems. Service departments should be helpful, courteous, .‘-efficient and unobstrusive. Matters referred to them should normally be heard of no more and require no followup until in a surprisingly short time the desired result is achieved. At present, purchasing probably operates nearest to this ideal. Systematic procedures are * obviously needed in dealing with large-scale business operations, but we can point to an unfortunate tendency for service groups to regard their own convenience of operation as more important than service. Usually, this unfortunate impression arises from a few employees regarding themselves as in higher authority than the teachers and researchers, to ‘say nothing of students, whom they are employed to serve. Since it appears not enough to remind the service groups that they exist to enable faculty and students to teach and learn and research with a minimum of digression into running the university’s business affairs, we recommend that changes in the government structure be made to provide for reviewing service operations not only by administrators who see clearly the advantage of smoothly-functioning offices, but also by a group representative of teachers, students and researchers, who on occasion suffer the effects of this tidy-mindedness. and researchers” beWe use the phrase “teachers cause we suspect that scrutiny by administrator-academics is less than effective. It is unduly idealistic to suppose a request for service from a dean is not treated a little more expeditiously and carefully than one from an assistant professor. Therefore, difficulties and delays never seen by such an administrator may indeed impede the daily activities of the lower ranks. Moreover, the administrator tends to be personally less involved in teaching and research and may seldom make the sort of request for service over which inconvenience arises. Moreover, he has a secretary or assistant to follow through any problems. We recommend in particular: 1. That each service department publish a brief annual report summarizing its budget, past activities and proposed changes. These reports, together witha summary of the overall budget, would put the service operation into better perspective. The need to indicate the achievements of the year should be salutary. If despite the normal supervision of the president% council on operations, it appears the path of a service group is depatiing from serving teaching and research, the annual report could serve as a focal point for questions and recommendations from departments or faculty councils to co+ rect the problem. 2. A program of leaves akin to sabbatical leaves should be set up to allow key servicepersonnel to pursue formal studies or make visits in search of ways to improve their operations. 3. The representation of those who, without administrative duties, teach, research and study in the university should be increased on the president’s council on operations, so that they may participate in evaluating the effect on these academic activities of alternative courses of action contemplated in the service departments. It would not be hard to catalog service operations . which have habitually gone astray, disrupting the workof the academic staff. We do not wish to do so in this brief.
But we will point out that the diversion of academic manpower by creating representation as described above will be far less than that devoted to the interminable following up of matters gone wrong or gone missing. Moreover, the latter and current wastage creates a concomitant waste in the service side in noting and responding to individual queries rather than to a consolidated critique of operations.
To a considerable extent, the scrutiny of the president’s council on operations rests upon prospective events or roams in a cursory fashion over many areas. Once a scheme is placed in operation, what happens? If the operations of service departments were subject to scrutiny by a faculty committee upon request, the complaint that “the administration~~ runs the university for itsown convenience would not stand up. Since the true good of the university in any matter must relate to its academic ends, we suggest that such an investigative group report to the senate. We propose a senate committee of fivefaculty members, the chairman of which shall be a senator, to serve as a standing investigating committee under thename the senate committee for continuous reappraisal. This com-
‘We propose university ombudsman 1 to deal with abuse of administration, fuculty or student power...’ mittee would act on request of the senate, on petition of ten faculty members, from at least two departments, or on its own initiative to investigate the powers, duties, structure, fiscal basis, policies, management and operations of any service department in the university, and to report its findings to the senate. This proposal is based particularly on the statements made to the committee that the library investigating committee of 1966 brought many useful things to light and pointed out previously unrecognized weaknesses in the library operations.
We propose a post of university ombudsman. The person appointed would require broad powers to investigate and report on reputed cases of arbitrary, obstructive, vindictive or nonexistent action by administrators or their subordinate bureaucracies, He wouldneedfree dom to deal equally with abuse of administrative power, faculty power and student power. Such a person should be a member of the university whose wisdom, persistence, and even temperament are generally recognized by all groups within his scope. He would need guaranteed access for reporting to whatever body or official he felt it appropriate to approach in digposing of a case. Equally, he would need a quarantee of security in his post for a stated term, possibly four or five years, and of relief from an appropriate portion of his normal duties during his term of office. We suggest that such an official would usually have only a tricle of minor matters to examine, but that the preexistence of his office could greatly facilitate handling an occasional major incident in a speedy, impartial and discreet manner to the greater satisfaction of all parties and at the least possible cost in disruption of the life of the university.
few employees regard themselves in higher authbrity than teachers and researchers, to say nothing of students’ largest number of areas of student concern could be most effectively dealt with by student participation in department-level activities. However, we also recommend student access to the senate and membershipinthe council. There they may share with the academic administrators the frustration of watching the ideas they have insinuated at the bottom of the pyramid slowly percolating upward toward them for final approval.

CO-op by Paul Solomonian Chevron sports
Somebody at the Co-op should have kept his hands in his pockets last week. But he threw a punch in a losing cause in a football game against St. Paul’s and the shock waves are still rolling. The Co-op flag football team was dropped from the league as a result of the fisticuffs, which were directed against a St. Paul’s player and a game official. Meanwhile, a win by St. Jerome’ s over Renison had left these two teams deadlocked with Co-op for second place with 2-2 records. St. Jerome’s claimed second by virtue of their win over Renison. Renison, on the other hand, felt the Co-op games must be taken into consideration (Co-op beat St. Jerome’s but lost to Renison) and claimed second because of a better point spread. A play-off was scheduled for Sunday noon, which St. Jerome% They later were bombwon 7-6. ed 20-O by St, Paul’s in the final. A protest was issued by St. Jerome’ s, stating that they did not have adequate time to prepare for the final game. As a result, they have threatened to withdraw from all intramural competition,

ship of former Leeds University star, Peter Watson to keep the ball near the Trent line. Twice the Warriors chose to run the ball over the line from a penalty kick and both attempts failed. A third attempt saw Steve Shelley dive between the posts for the first points of the Warrior season. Ed Murphy made an easy convert and the score read 5-O. From this point, Waterloo dominated. Though they had trouble with the greasy ball* they produced two or three fine backfield runs. Winger Paul Grose climaxed one particular movement that saw the whole three-quarter line handle the ball before a slick winger slidinto the end zone on his backside for a try. Trent were treated to a traditional beer up after the game. Rugger songs were sung, the malt consumed and promises were made for a reversal of the decision at T rent this weekend. The Warriors play at Champlain College, Sunday at 2:30 pm in the rematch. Saturday sees the newly formed second team to be named the W.C’s, take on the London Forest City XV at 2:30 p.m. at Bauer Field. Spectators will be welcomed to the game and the bash afterwards. More players and socialmembers can be used by the club. Those interested should call Murray Brooker at 745-1269 orGeorge Tuck at 576-9257. Particularly needed are team manageresses to look after the team on road trips, to make sure they get there and back, to sendout oranges at half time and to generally look after the welfare of the team. All transportation and expenses are looked after by the club. The highlights of the seasonwill be on November 18 when the team travels to Dartmouth College at Hanover, New Hampshire.

For the first time in four years a Warrior captain took Bar-00 into the dressing room. Bob McKillop carried the traditional LutheranU of W trophy off the field before a happy U of W crowd. The WUC part of the crowd could not be very happy as their Golden Hawks had gone down to defeat by a 12-8 score. The Warriors improved. their league record to 3-2 while Lutheran suffered its first defeat of the season. The Waterloo victory leaves McMaster alone in first place as the Marauders remain the only undefeated team in the Unless Lutheran loses CCIFC. again, their last game of the se% son -will prove to be a play-off with Mat. The winner of that game will meet the winner in the Maritime League to decide the eastern representative in the College Bowl. The win was a big one for the Warriors as Lutheran had been rated sixth in the nation. The Warriors were not rated in the top ten. The Warriors outclassed the Hawks both on the ground and in the air. Bob McKillop was seven for 17 gain&g 117 yards while the Hawk QB Dave McKay threw for 94 yards on seven out of 16, On the ground the Warriors had 128 yards to the Hawks 118 yards. In the first quarter the Hawks had the wind with them and after six exchanges Mike Blackmore kicked a 36 yard single. The Warrior defense played a great game holding the WUC offense to their one point until late in the fourth quarter. TheWarrior offense did not stand still as they scored two TDs on runs by McKillop and Brian Irvine. McKillop went over on a dive after the Warriors had marched 45 yards to paydirt. Ed Scorgie set up the TD when he recovered a Hawk fumble. The march con-

The pass to Walt Finden went incomplete and the Warriors were forced to give up the ball on downs. E the Warriors had failed to score later that would have been the biggest play of the game. h-vine’s TD came early in the second half after a 52 yardmarch. The Warriors again used their screen pass and when the Hawks were called for piling-on the offense did not waste the opportunity. lrvine carried three times starting from the 12 and on the third attempt went over to make the score 12-l. Lutheran came back immediately and started to march from their own 33 yard line. After movini the ball very deep into the Warrior end of the field theHawks lost the ball on a fumble. Severalplayers had possession of the ball but the wet conditions caused it the squirt all over the field. The Warriors got a big breakwhen Joe Sowieta finally smothered the ball. The Hawks were not to be held down for they scored their only major soon after. AdrianKraayeveld intercepted a McKillop pass on the Waterloo 40 and later Dave McKay hit Jeff Brown with a 7 yard pass for six points. The Warriors now had a four point lead and had only to run out the clock to win the game. The War rior defense not only held the WUC offense scoreless but they also kept them bottled up in their own end. The Warriors got the ball in the last minute but chose to use their running game as it was the safest way to keep possession of the ball.

There was a general concensus among U of W *players that the best players in the competition were Rosie Wain (the only female in the game) and Phil Villar of Cornell. Rumm said that Villar is one of the best players in the world and is “dedicated and fanatical. He brought 40 pages of strategy between the rounds.” Villar, incidently, is not a student at Cornell or any other school and Rich Garson also of the Co> nell team is, a student at the U of Buffalo. As a result a protest was lodged with the North American Tiddleywinks Association before the competition. Rumm emphasized that this was not sour grapes but merely a precedent to findout what constitutes a legal university team.
In the course of the 3 round semifinal each team was to play each other team.

but praise house effort
To the editor: I think the Tenth Anniversary Week committee deserves a lot of credit from the people of this university. The organization was superb, especially on Friday when thousands of highschool students flocked to the campus to see what we have to offer, most of them arriving between 9 and 10 am. The speed with which they were divided into groups, alloted a guide and sent off on the first leg of their visit was symbolic of the work that went into the planning of the day.

The traffic problem caused by over 80 buses on Friday and thousands of cars on Saturday and Sunday was handled without mishap.

To the editor: The Tenth Anniversary open house was a spectacular success according to all reports that Ihave received--also according to that which I saw personally on Sunday afternoon when I toured most buildings with displays. I extend sincere congratulations and appreciation to the many people at the university who helped in planning, creating and organizing the complexprogram. Your efforts made the university come alive as a vital, interesting and exciting organization to many thousands of young and old, people, who previously hardly knew it existed.

TO the editor: ‘Very c crItI .‘i-dictory” is the opinion of “a parent” (Feedback, October 27) regarding my letter opposition to Dr. Helen Reesor*s statement on dispensing birthcant rol pills. (“NO.I would have blood on my hands.“) Parent makes a number of statemerits, most of which I agree with, none of which even attempt to show a contradiction in my letter. I find the personal vindictive of Parent’s letter most objectionable. There was no statement in my letter from which it could reasonably be inferred that I arnalecher. I suppose Parent was carried away with his righteous fervor ,for which I forgive him--but a statement of my feelings and beliefs in neces sitated by his derogatory comments o The student health center should dispense contraceptive devices. When and if it becomes legal SO to do, Dr. Reesor should bewilling to prescribe birth-control pills, according to her judgment of the medical (not mor al) circumstances of any single woman requesting such a prescription.

Fear should enter into a decision of conscience, particularly when that fear is avoidable. In a real love relationship both parties would look forward tomarriage.

To marry now would be to exaggerate the importance of ‘sex. If my own engagement had been for three or four years rather than seven months,’ I would have personally felt that it was right FOR ME to engage in sex but would not have done so unless my fiancee concurred entirely with my views. The reasons and concepts which Parent puts forward for not engaging in premarital sex are basically, quite valid. However, they indicate a need for increased, not decreased, availability of knowledge about and devices for cant raception. Toincreasefear or to make sex seem dirty (“I would have blood on my hands”) is not acceptable in a university. RUSSEL J. BAIRD engineering 4

To the editor: Three Bronx cheers for the University of Waterloo. While American youths sweat, suffer and die in Vietnam to preserve the basic liberties we cherish somuch, concerned students from U of W decided to show their fervent humanitarianism and patriotism by protesting this war. With a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat, I humbly offer my gratitude and my congratulations. Unfortunately , though, I find it absurd that U of W students must descend tosofrivolous agesture as to act out such a tepid, chauvinistic, papier -mache irnitation of the real thing that takes place in the United States. Now, as thinking citizens of the free world we should at least be diverting our unfelt influence toward the government in hopes that the Prime Minister will take a vigorous stand in support of the war, and in particular, perhaps send Canadian youth to Vietnam to help our American allies. In doing this, the government would not only be aiding the cause of freedom, but also wouldbedemonstrating our gratitude to the U.S. for the many great things it has performed for the development of Canada. I suggest we give the students in protest marches as a peace offering to Ho Chi Minh and his buddies in North Vietnam. JOHN WELLS arts 1

Open hduse is big success, film steals show sociology This story was written by a Toronto highschool student, who worked on the Chevron staff this summer.
The university% Open House turned out to be a brilliant public relations manouver. People from all over the province came to see $80 millionworth of educational complex that has been denied to them for almost 10 years. The response from the public was overwhelming. People were still arriving at 4~00 on Sunday and guides were forced to work until 7:OO. It was revealed in a survey that 46% would give to the university building fund, 36% probably would and 18570wouldn’t. Everyone was impressed and everyone enjoyed themselves. Although it appeared that they were walking aimlessly about, most people had a definite idea as to what they wanted to see. Attendance figures substantiate this fact. A Chevron survey revealed that only 25% of the Saturday and Sunday visitors saw the Arts’ exhibits. The most popular exhibits in Arts were the Sociology film and the Political Science display. Standing room only was the rule and many people were turnedaway from the presentation in AL124 by the Sociology department. Of all the exhibits, it received the most publicity and praise by the mass media, ’ The exhibit consisted of several films and slides shown simultaneously with lighting and sound effects. The filnis included one of the %hoice Boys’* and two which won awards--cJNeighbour9’ and gWxty Cycl_esY George Shun* who wasin charge of the exhibit, said that the sociology department wanted to improve its image and prove that sociol-

The success of the PoliticalScience display can be attributed to the relevance of the topic presented and the interesting explanations given by the students and professors. One wall was covered with campaign posters from the lastprovin-

In the Physics ~department, the laser beam display on Sunday drew a large audience. Due to the’amount of light in’ the room, most people could only see a fine streak of blue light. The general consensus of the public was that there wasn’t enough time to see everything. Many people said that open house should be an annual event.

to confusing and muddy.Theyliked the campus because it was new. Roni Esco, Downsview Collegiate, when accosted, said’%he campus reminds me of Expo.” The weather failed to dampen her intentions of coming here next year. Michael C ichon, also Downsview was dismayed because the cumputer rejected his card which asked, <Why do girls not participate in premarital intercourse?’ Sheldon Levy, Downsview was upset because as he put it, “the guys in chemistry take it for granted you know everything”. Kay Simpson, West Hill Secondary, Owen Sound, complainedthat she didn’t get a chance to eat until 3 pm and found that the cafeteria was closed. She enjoyed the psych building and saw the pigeon but not the monkees. She found everyone on campus friendly including the two first year students who gave her advice. Believe it or not the food at the cafeteria was praised. Steffanie Rogienski, Pelham High, in Fenwick near Welland, thought that the cafeteria was really wild and the food good. When prodded she ad.mitted that any thing was good compared to what they have down there. She’ll be going to McMaster next year because we don? offer nursing here.

Open house seems to have been a success, but how was it from the highschool point of view? As you’ probably noticed, more than 5,000 of us invaded the campus lasiFriday despite the pouring rain. The general opinion I heard was that open house was very interesting in its displays, but it failed to provide what students really came for-information on university life in general. Most students expected to see examples of classes and lectures,and get talks on the kinds of courses available, to find out if Waterloo fits their interests. What they got was a mixture of boredom, exciting demonstrations and disPlays. ’ Highly praised were the psychology display, the physics exhibit, the electin microscope, the mouse living under water, the the geography departlasters, ment’s work and the glassblower. Biggest criticism was that too many of us were there. LikeExpo when you get to a good exhibit, it was too crowded to see or hear properly. The giant numbers also caused some confusion inspite of the organization. ’ Students also disliked being pushed into unwanted tours which often took too long and showed too little of real interest, consequently making them miss other good exhibits.

Editorial The Homecoming committee got Dram Productions from Kitchener to book the Pozo Seco Singers. As they were not available, Phil Ochs was hired by Dram from the William Morris Agency in New York. The Homecoming committee got no word from Dram, from William Morrisor from Ochs about when he would arrive. Friday noon the Morris agency telegraphed Dram to say Ochs would arrive on flight 791 at 6:45. Because it was impossible to get Ochs from Toronto International Airport to Seagram Stadium by 7:30, the Homecoming committee got another act to fill in for the first part of the concert. At 5:30 the Four Just Men and Just One Woman were hired to perform at 7:30, McGinnis, Homecoming co-chair man, hired a car and went to the airport to drive Ochs to Waterloo in time for a belated concert. Dram did not offer to get him to Waterloo, nor did Ochs make any attempt to get to Waterloo from Toronto. At the airport, McGinnis waited for flight 791. It was delayed until 6:50 and finally landed at 7:15. No Ochs. Ochs had arrived at 6: 15 on another flight. After a few moments of searching the airport lounge, McGinnis met Ochs and the two started to Waterloo. Ochs said he told William Morris about the flight change two days previous. Yet for some reason Morris neglected to mention this to Dram or to theHomecom-

After considerable investigation, here is what happened.
by Ed Penner Student emeritus
I’ve been putting off commenting on student activism for sometime now, but for lack of any other material I guess I’ll have to look at it in this column. Activism is a difficult subject to comment on in this university. Engineering and science in all probability will want 01’ Penner to stomp all over the new left; political-science will want me to supPort it, and arts will have stopped reading by now. Personally I have always re garded any type of politics, student OR government, as the worst type of corrupt abomination, attracting only the worst type of animals into its fold. This is not to say that Penner does not like politics; many enjoyable hours Pave been spent cursing the actions of those corrupt abominable animals.

committee. At 7:50 Ochs was somewhere outside Toronto on the 401 heading towards Waterloo with McGinnis. In Waterloo, Joe Recchia, (who severed connections with Dram last April) the other co-chairman .of Homecoming, explained the absence and introduced the fillin group, who took the stage for an impromptu performance. Recchia left. He had to emcee the coffeehouse and dance which was due to start. So the group, the Four Just Men and Just One Woman were on stage at Seagram with 700 people in the audience wondering what would happen next. There was no emcee. No Ochs. No McGinnis. Finally, around 8:45, McGinnis and Ochs arrived. The folk group left the stage and McGinnis took over for a few minutes to allow Ochs guitar to adjust to the temperature change. McGinnis, obviously distraught, introduced Ochs in a very unorthodox manner. It is not too often that a performer gets degraded by the emcee five minutes before show time but this was what McGinnis did to Ochs. With such stirring words as ‘(He can’t sing, he can’t play a guitar,” McGinnis brought on Phil Ochs. However true the words may be, it hardly seemed the time and place to broach the subject. Ochs seemed to laugh off the introduction and started his concert. He sang several songs then left the stage.

Was it over? Was it just an intermission? Would there be an encore? Who knew? McGinnis, the emcee, didn’t appear on stage and many people started to leave, assuming the concert over. Finally, one of the Homecoming committee members, Mary Bull, got on stage and brought a little sanity to the scene. She was able to discover this was only an intermission. McGinnis knew the program would be a ix+ act format but he told no one else. Most of the audience returned to their seats and Ochs finished the program. A post-mortem on the whole affair indicates several things. Either Ochs, Dram or the William Morris Agency was at fault in not giving Homecoming a correct arrival time. The Homecoming chairmen cannot have all blame hoisted on their shoulders. But McGinnis should be chastized for his failure to pick up as emcee after Ochs’ first half performance. The blame must be laid on the Federation of Students’ booking and hiring policies. The archaic system of letting each committee (in reality each committee chairman) choose the talent and the method of bringing it in has proven useless. The foul-ups surrounding concerts in the past attest to this. What is needed is a newer, more effective Federation procedure to befollowed whenever bookings are made for student events.
sober thought that I want to kick in the face of the dictator or whoever allowed this kid to starve in the first place. But by that time I have forgotten how repulsive the kid looked and I no longer care. Now the student activist \fill be quick to point out that it is actually me who should be kicked in the fa& for allow@ a world to exist where grubby, emaciated little kids have to hold out rice-bowls to rich photographers. But I cannot carry the logic or the situation that far. And this is why Penner must refrain from any Comment on activists or the new left or whatever. Their individual worlds are too far apart. However, in closing, I must say that in activists are interested in . rest,,ing ‘%oola-boola”, destroying computer registration, and whoever is responsible for the registrzu? s office, then perhaps we’re not so far apart after all.
SOS: science on the spot There is a byelection in progress for two vacant science seats on student council. So far there haven’t been any nominations received. There are several things wrong. First there is a general apathy among the science faculty. We know. Science students are almost nil on our staff. Second, voting and eligibility . should be open to last year’s constituents. That is, the math students who were in science should be elegible to contest the election and to vote. It is bad enough that they are only indirectly represented by those candidates elected in last year’s council elections. Perhaps even last year’s math students who were in arts should be able to vote in this byelection. I The third point to be made concerns the presidentof the science society, Bill Kirton. While science students seem apathetic, their society is fairly active. The only prob. lem is an apparent lack of con-
fidence of the executive in their president. Bill Kirton should resign his position as president of the science society and run for one of the science seats on student council. Besides relieving the society of an internal conflict, it would leave Kirton in a more effective position on student council. At present Kirton sits on council ’ as a non-voting member like do all other society presidents. Many councillors feel however that society presidents should limit their participation to matters effecting their society. Kirton is a potentially effective council member. We would like to see him sit as an elected voting representative. So come on, science students. At least be as active as the math students who requested a judicialcommittee hearing on their representation. Make it a contest. And if Bill Kirton runs, show him whether you want him representing you on council.

Elevating complainin about was that it was too wet. Ididn’t mind thoo--it didn’t put a damnper on my weakend. In fa<t 1 had a lot of fun playing in the swimin pools all along the sidewalks. I bet that really impressed all the tinny-boppers, in their wet little shoes. And did you notice how PP & P took all the dirt off the path to the Village so that visitors couldn’t play in it? That was kind 0’ mean, but at least they put it back on Monday so when it rained on Tuesday we could make mudpies on the Way to class.

It is impossible to get to know 8,500 people individually. And that’s why the University of -Waterloo needs a new governmental structure. One of the real problems in the debate on university government is that people refuse to treat one another as nersons. Administrators and faculty have a habit of typing student leaders as radicals scrambling to seize power. Students have a habit of typing administrators and faculty as reactionaries scrambling to stay in power. Discussions tend to be filled with suspicion. Facts tend to be hidden because no one will be honest. This is, of course, not a problem unique to university life. Everywhere in life, people tend to think of others as types instead of individual human beings. U of W started out without the problem. Ten years ago, anybody I
could sit down for coffee with the president in the cafeteria. But there are a hundred times as ma ny people here now. If you’re lucky you may get to ride the library elevator with Unc1e Ierry* The problem of communication is acute* And, the body that is supposed to be trying to solve it, the study committee on university government, is itself hamstrung by it. Members should not come to meetings with their mind already made up. Students made a much better showing at Monday’s meeting than their elders. Seemingly more flexible, the students did not push useless points when it appeared they were not goint to get answers. Surely it is not asking too much that the 26 people on this committee learn to appreciate one another as equal individuals, to let down the barriers and deal honestly with the real problems.

Yes Virginia, there was a ray of sun in October. In fact, the weather office claimed that the sun appeared 10 days last month. There were 23 days of heavy overcast, 17 of which had some rain. Scenes like the above were typical, especially on Homecoming weekend which experienced rain, drizzle, dense fog, and even snow. Chevron photo by Rob Brady

Farm/i ous le dwellers to campus

The most impressedvisitors for Tenth Anniversary Week had to be Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Schweitzer, now residents of Waterloo. The Schweitzers used to live in the little white farmhouse just west of the chemical-engineering building. They owned the 126 acres of the south campus where all the main buildings are presently located. Reflecting on their 36 years here, the couple remembered the location as their open farm. They raised two children, both now living in other cities. Their daughter, Katherine agraduate of Waterloo Lutheran now living in Atlanta, Georgia, cried the eve of her departure. She claimed she would never see such a beautiful sunset as the one that night. Mr. Schweitzer recalled the numerous times his son, Lloyd, got strangely wetted by the waters of
the hallowed Laurel Creek. He also retold the story of how the family dog alleviated the groundhog surplus by grabbing one’ and methodically dunking it in the creek until it drowned. Their farm was the first to be sold to the university. The property was to be a city industrial site. Mabel and Stanley Schweitzer admitted they were ready toleave. Although they enjoyed seeing the nuns walking on their property at nights, they did wish for privacy in their later years. They thought students would be interested that there used to be a beach for swimming. At the bend in Laurel Creek at the foot of the Village hi& there was a sandy swimming area which was very popular with the friends of the family. The couple made a tour of the campus which took in the library, the math building and the science complex.
Batke predicts scholarly ddAs we enter the second decade of our university we too might ask toward what we go.” Dr. Ted Batke, university vice-president in charge of development, spoke to more than 450 people at* tending the 15th convocation last Friday. Batke said the scholarly mind sees the future as an idealized past while the artistic mind is able to “sense future forms in the flux of the present”. He added that it is necessary to reach a balance between the scholarly and artistic minds. To achieve this, future developments at Wat-

The most important contribution that the university can make is c‘forging a new philosophy of freedom for a humanity now grop ing for guidelines in the era of its most intensive transformation,$’ said Batke. Man today is constantly fighting for freedom. We must focus our attention on the human life of man. This will be mainly the concern of

the humanities in the university although all faculties will become involved. Batke told the graduates that man will cease to be amazed at the feats of the pure and applied sciences. They will continue to flourish but the university should become more involved in the new explorationsof the human spirit. c( We are determined at Waterloo to become a great university, in tune with the intellectual demands of our time.” he said. In closing he said that Waterloo today can proudly claim that “this is where the action is!”
