The Toronto Globe and Mail in a front-page story Saturday linked three bombing incidents on Hallowe’en with the vote of non-confidence in the Federation of Students’ council Thursday afternoon. The explosions late Thursday evening destoryed one footbridge and damaged another in the Waterlob Pa’rk akd and smashed windows in the Waterloo Towers apartment building beside the Co-op’s Hammarskolk House. The Globe’s headline read “Bridge is destroyed on Waterloo campus’ ’ although none of the bombings were on university proPertY. Apparently based only on the fact that the two events took place the same day, the Globe and Mail story linked them in the second and third paragraphs: No one was injured in the blasts which followed by hours Thursday’s ouster of the university s student council. The majority of 7500 students at a special general meeting had voted non-confidence in the council, charging it with radical actions. Police refused to speculate on the reason behind the explosions. However, residents of the University of Waterloo cooperative building, near where the blasts went off were among those instrumental in calling Thursday’s meeting.

A later sentence read: “He (police chief Harold passe) refused to comment on the theory that it was the work of political dissidents on campus. ” Both the bombing story and a front-page item in Friday’s Globe on Thursday’s general meeting were written by Rosemary Pitcher, the Globe’s local correspondent. Reached at home Sunday night, Mrs. Pitcher complained her Saturday story was changed drastically at the rewrite desk in the Globe’s Toronto office. “They’ve, done it to me before,” she said. “They pick one thing out of the story and put it in the lead and then I’m in trouble here.”

She denied emphasizing the linking of the two, although she had noted later in the story that some of the students at the general meeting who were upset about the student council did live in the Co-op. Federation president Brian Iler said he was “shocked” by the story. “There is absolutely no other connection other than time on which to draw such conclusions. They didn’t even mention it was Hallowe’en. Nor did they mention similar pranks which have occurred in the Co-op area on past Hallowe’ens,” said Iler. “There is no other conclusion that can be reached from reading the story than that the bombings were the work of left-wing radicals,” he said. “I will be meeting with the federation’s lawyer, Morley Rosenberg, to see if we can take any action against the ,Globe. This story slanders every radical member of student council.” Iler and Chevron editor Stewart Saxe met with Francis Russell, a representative of the Globe and Mail, Sunday morning to discuss the story and Friday’s one-sided reporting of the general meeting. “Miss Russell said the newsdesk had no way of checking the facts and so relied on the submitted story. She *admitted no responsibel editor would have run a story like Saturday’s with so little proof of connection,” Iler noted. “I was even called by the London Free Press to give “our side of the story’ as opposed to the unfounded speculations of the Globe” said Iler. Student leaders across Ontario have complained bitterly about reporting in the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail. “Coverage by the KitchenerWaterloo Record has been fair,” Iler stated. “But their editorial policy still ignores fa.cts and slams student activists.” The Record did not link the

Federation of Students elections will be held November 27, following council’s resignation. A vote of non-confidence at last Thursday’s general meeting precipitated the elections. Nominations open today and will close in a week. Two weeks of campaigning will follow. The new council will take office December 4. Co-op out-term council members do not have to seek re-election and out:term students will only vote for president. The board chairmen, vicepresident and treasurer resigned with council but will hold their positions until a new president is elected.,At the joint meeting of the old and new coun@ls after the election, the new president will announce his nominations for these positions. Engineering reps Richard Allen and Greg Ast were also noncommittal. “I don’t think I could represent the engineers in what they’re thinking right now. I’m not really an activist but I’m in favor of CUS, and what council was trying to do,” said Allen. Bill Snodgrass, another engineering rep. stated: “I guess I’m running. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t. ” Arts rep Dave Cubberly said he juit hadn’t made up his mind.

Grad rep Richard Kinler, president of the Grad Society, said he’d wait until the society meeting Thursday night, and bring the question of running again up then. Another grad rep, Garth McGeary, and phys-ed rep Pat Lavigne were definite about not running. Lavigne explained: “I’ll be off campus for two of the next three terms. That’s the major reason; but I ca?t see myself in politics and I can’t see why students should get involved in some of the things council did. ” The three members who resigned before the general meeting vote, Kathy Dilts (arts 1, and Jim Belfry and Sue Lieberman (math ) were also unsure. Belfry, whose petition led directly to the general meeting and the resignation, said: “I don’t know for sure.” The radical members of council held a meeting Monday night to determine a slate of candidates. Arts rep Csril Levitt said: “I’ll probably be running again, but I won’t know for sure until Monday night.” Individually, the radicals are undecided as well. An exception was science rep Ian Calvert: “Yes, I’m definitely running. I’d be compromising my principles if I didn’t.” Glenn Berry, co-op math rep. outlined the purpose of the Mondav meeting :

“We’re going to be talkihg things out, to make sure we know who our candidates are. We want a consistent slate of candidates and some sort of organization, with as many members of the old council as possible. ‘Possible presidential candidates include current president Brian Iler, Larry Burko-arts 3, Danny Mueller-eng 2, Vern Copelandarts 2 and Reuben Cohen-math 3. Iler commented: “I’m definitelv running again because I feel we’& done a pretty good job. The major problem now is basic communication. We’ve got to explain what’s happened and why, and what we can do about it now.” Cohen called himself a council critic. He also felt the elections are a farce since the students are being cut off from council for three months, “Demands naturally raise antagonism on the administration’s part. So we’ve got to work with them. I also want to deal directly with the administration president, not with a niiddleman like the provost,” he said. “I want to stuff the students’ symbolism and the administration’s protocol out the window. Copeland admitted his candidacy was a possibility which he was cor$emplating. Mueller said, “I may run. It’s a possibility.” Burko declined to comment.

Iler noted the only other bodies to appoint students to university committees are the faculty soc:-L:,1t!ues. Registrar Trevor Boyes, senate secretary, said there was na provision for replacing Pike. He indicated it was up to administration president Gerry uagey, also of _.the senate _ _ .’ _ta1 _ _ _chairman _ decide what action should be recommended to senate. The senate was in a hurry to deal with the university governmerit report as quickly as passible, he said, and this seemed a logical way.

The avengers is an adventure series which knocks ‘the cliches, the absurdities and the worn-out formula of the television spy series. The parody is achieved through witty dialogue, wild plots and tongue--in-cheek humor. The biggest mistake one could make is to watch it as though it were a straight dramatic series. The hero of The avengers, John Steed, played by Patrick MacNee, is a lineal descendent of the Scarlet Pimpernel. He is a man of independent means, possesses .a sharp wit and is well schooled in the art of being politely rude. Style and charm, rather than violence, are the weapons he employs when fighting crime. Mr. Steed has had several partners to aid him since the series began in 1961. The first was Ian Hendry, a doctor whose fiancee had been shot down on a street corner. The good doctor and Steed teamed to avenge her death. In 1962, Hendry quit and was replaced by Honor Blackman. Miss Blackman portrayed Mrs. Catherine Gale, a PhD who spoke six languages and was an expert in judo. For photographic purposes she dressed completely in black lgather and this caused such a fashion- trend the price of leather went up. The avengers at that time was done on video tape and because of editing difficulties with tape, Miss , Blackman was forced to actually learn the ancient art. The realistic groans of pain from the men she tossed were ofteri more than good acting. When Honor Blackman left in 1964, both the public and critics claimed she could not be replaced. They were proved wrong for her successor was a girl who may well be the greatest comedienne that Britain has ever seen. Diana Rigg as Mrs. Emma Peel wore avant-guarde clothing, lived in a streamlined penthouse, was a widow and an adept fighter. In fact, she gave the role everything Honor Blackman did and then proceeded to add a new dimension of her own. Emma’s sharp and lively wit addedha touch of humor to even the most dangerous predicaments. She could even be iunny #without saying a word or going through .elaborate contortions as many modern cbmediennes do. For example, at a party she carried on a one-sided conversation with. her mouth full of hors-d’oeuvres, using only her eyes and slight facial expression. The result was hilarious. Instead of taking her predecessor’s role and building on it, she tore it all down and tried to rebuild it by herself. The result is a character that instead of being bigger than life is rather

The always threw

success of The avengers came from the fact they out the cardboard cutout characters and ’ replaced them with characters of huge extravagance and individuality. Tara King, the swinging London girl who deep down inside wants to catch her man. settle down and raise a family. is ‘exactly the kind of tepid. cliche pcrson the two avcngcrs used to ridicule so well. One of the really unfortun;!te I.hings is that Miss Thorson has had an adverse cft’cct on John Skcd. A press rclcasc once described him as “a foppish, howler-hatted, umbrella-carrying ‘(*ynic wh(; is rude to the point of cAousncss and has t’cw morals and no conscience.“ Now howc’vcr Steed has bccomc a nice guy in order to get along with t hc nice girl who is his partThe dialog bctwccn them IlC’ I’. sc’c\ms to bc lirn’itcd to “(fee Ta ra you look wonderful“ and “(kc Steed vou look nice too.” In previous seasons. the avengcr world had an internal order of it’s own. Cybcrnauts could walk through cities without being seen because the great masses of humanity did not exist. The cosmology of this world ctcntrcd on the two avengers and the activity rev&cd around them. Now it seems they arc Chc slaves of a giant bureaucracy headed by ,Mothcr (Patri(*k Ncwcll). Our her,ocs, unlike McGoohan’s The Prisoner can no longer be considcrcd as individuals fighting absorption into the mass identity. Much of the fault lies with the show’s new producer, Brian Clemens, tiho seems to think girls arc sugar and spice and everything nice. He also seems to feel that by keeping the external world the same (deserted streets, pastoral beauty etc. 1, he can get away with weakening and changing characteriszation. The new writing team, Dennis Spooner; Richard Harris and Terry Nation, are responsible for such second-rate efforts as the second Tony Hancock show and The champions. Their specialty see,ms to be stretching’ twenty minutes of plot into a faull hour. Consequently a show that was once fast ‘and funny now drags on endlessly. The whole problem seems to be a sort of brain drain. Even Laurie Johnson who has written’ the. music since the show began is about to leave. There is little hope for future. since Miss Thorsy has neither the talent nor experience to keep from standing in Diana Nigg’s shadow forever and also since the writers and producers and in a creative rut.

The’ split, Ernest Borgnine, is a slick crime programmer which glorifies the North American punk and his morbid, violent way of life. d The setting is a boxoffice robbery which takes place during a championship football game between the Cowboys and the Rams. The plot evolves into a conflict over the money and the accumulation of a ~IW.II rrlar~y (*ot*ps~s. It also throws in a lit,t.lc dig at, the Los Angeles police department.The story originated from Richard Stark’s novel The seventh, adapted to the screen by Robert Sabaroff. Jim Brown plays McClain, a hard-hitting, blackleather character who strangely has the ability to plan the job. With four assistants, Ernest Borgnine, , Jack Klugman, Warren Oates and Donald Sutherland. hc gains cbnfry into the boxoft’i(T canter in the football stadium. Overpowering the guards the next day, they ea.&ally await the money, shipped in from all over the stadium. They then quickly make their getaway in an ambulance while Sutherland, the nonerves gunman slows down all traffic by shooting out the tires of eve’ry car in sight.

who makes his getaway with a gi-eat share of the bread. . Jim Brown, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, appears in films for the third time and is on his way to being a big star if not a great actor. Brown is a combination of the’good looks of Rock Hudson, the virility of Sean Connery and the acting ability of Clint Easfwood. His fame as a football player. his color and his slack ability to perform will make him a wealthy actor and important star to the American ,public. Happily, though, he personafies the States’ desire to have a colored man as its hero, which is -;1 step t’ortvard for culture in Yankic-land cincrr1a.r

Beautiful Diahann Carroll’s performance is’ too short. She is quickly liquidated by Whitemore before she can broaden her character into a more sympathetic one. It appears her only. -use was to die so Brown would be in a better position to react. The cheap fade-out at the end was too quick and wasted her death. Kifka, Gough, Negli and Clinger, Brown’s assistants, suited the mood of the movie. Borgnine as Clinger has a wasted mediocre -role. Jack Klugman as Kifka was the only minor character to change or to so much as react. Warren Oates, aS Gough, plays the stereotype physics wizard typically found on Mission impossib/e.

I think we must ‘face the fact that though ‘knowledge is an end in itself, education is not. Education is for the preserva? tion and development of the tribe, and the tribe is now the human race. I) Let us therefore begin without delay a radical reform of our school and university curricula, and our educational ‘philosophy, so that their center is the application of the knowledge of the ‘past to the problems of the present and the future. And let us have as our unswerving aim the understanding, in a much wider sense than Matthew Arnold meant it, of “the best that has been thought or said in the world”, with equal attention to whether, it is being said in ancient Athens or modern Tokyo, in Moscow or Geneva or Pekin or Harlem or Montreal. If all disciplines are informed with that spirit, there will no longer be fringe courses. And if it is too late. to remake our present institutions of learning in this image, let us by all means set about now to create new ones.

Civil disobedience, in other words, places a man’s inner sense of justice above the laws imposed by society. It erects p<rinciples above-_ political’ ,expedjents, and it has been ‘rather well described as “an application of absolute moral truths, in the realm of historical action”. It invokes the idea of responsibility as against the idea of obedience, and for this reason it appeals strongly to a doubt about conventional ideas of duty’ which has become very widespread since the rise and f,all of Nazism’. It was this doubt that made the trial of Adolf Eichmann : such a morally significant event. Wh’at was being tried in. that Israeli courtroom was not, merely a man who had sent millions of innocents to their death; it was not even merely the general record of the Nazis. It was the cult of unquestioning obedienceto law and authority. If we accept duty as meaning that kind of obedience, then Eichmann was innocent: he merely acted under orders. If E’ichmann. was guilty, then- we have to accept the idea of a+ point at which a man is morally bound to disobey rather than to perform acts that. go beyond his conceptjons of morality of justice, even if these acts were ordered” by the state.

Waterloo has won its second Ontario-Quebec Athletic Association team title of the vear and for the second time ithas come from the track squad. Last Saturdav the cross-countrv Warriors upset the heavily favoured Toronto squad to ‘win the OQAA title and gain a berth in the Canadian championships. The meet was- held at Guelph. \ I

Seven schools entered, with a total field of 47 runners. All schools finished a complete five..-man team except Western. Two runners from that team sustained twisted ankles on the rough 5mile, lOOO-yard course. The Warriors’ score of ‘37 was two points ahead of Toronto’s 39. ‘Guelph finished third with 72 points followed by McMaster (841,. Queen’s (132) and McGill (199). , _ The race was won impressively by Guelph’s Grant McLaren in 29:24.0. He took off early in the race and ran strongly to finish 300 yards ahead of Toronto’s Dave Bailey, recently returned from the Olympics. Combined with nis -3-mile track title, this win esta,blished McLaren _as the t&p distance runner in the ‘OQAA this year. , Two more Toronto men, Brian Armstrong and Brian Richards, fir&bed third and fourth. of the next six runners ,Five’ were’ W~rridrs.

Jim Sothard. running despite a groin injury, finished back in the field. ’ Both * Sumner and Pearson caught and passed Monck on the Guelph track in the final quartermile. These two efforts, combined with Walker’s duel with Tong, were vital in the Warrior victory. Waterloo’s outstanding performance was spurred on by the brashness of Toronto coach Fred Foot. Last Week at Canisius Foot labelled the Warriors as a “pretty weak team”. Expecting to win, as usual, Toronto neglected to bring the trophy and even had booked reservations for the trip to the national finals this Saturday. The Warriors, as winners of the GQAA, qualify to travel to the finals which will be held in Halifax, N.S. ‘They will meet the champions of the four other Canadian collegiate athletic conferences. : OQ&A ” -winn ers have had a habit in the past of picking up the national title as well. In the brief span of two weeks, Coach Neil Widmeyer’s track squads have given Waterloo two OQAA crowns. By Saturday they may add a national championship as well. For the record, no Warrior team has ever been in a national finai.

“Pride, confidence and dedication were the essentials of today’s victory. We knew that we-had the ability and with a thirty-man team effort we won easily. ” Those were the words of Warrior ‘coach Wally Delahey after the team’s victory over .the Western. Mustangs on Saturday. The Warriors went’ into the dressing room at the half behind 6-O but they shook their second half ‘jinx to score 30 unanswered points. The Warrior offense showed its ability as it took good advantage of the breaks Bs the defense forced Western to turn over the ball repeatedly. The win was suitable revenge for the earlier loss to the Mustangs. The Warriors clearly outclassed Western as they marched for 339 yards and 21 firstdowns. -Western managed 13 firstdowns while moving the ball 243 yards. : The game was marred by 17 fumbles of which 7 belonged to the Warriors. The -Mustangs scored their only points on a bad punt snap and fumble that a Western lineman kicked and pushed 62 yards to the Waterloo goal line. Gairey Richardson then picked up the ball and went into the endzone for the TD. The only other times that Western had chances to score were in the first half.
