The problems of the University of Waterloo athletic department are on the verge of coming to a head this week. Precipitating the activity is Ed DeAfmon’s plan of retirement. DeArmon is coach of the warriors wrestling team, which recently won the OQAA championship and placed second in the’ national championships. He is also assistant coach of the football team. News of DeArmon’s retirement plans has brought reaction from many people. The football players and wrestlers are writing ietters to athletic directior, C>rl Totzke expressing their position. The players seem to feel that DeArmon’s retirement is the result of interpersonal conflicts within the athletic department. ” The letter from the football team members states that they were aware of the conflicts among the coaches which were not brought out in the open. Apparently, the feeling is that these head conflicts were between coach Wally Delahey, and two of the assistant coaches, Ed
DeArmon and Mike Lavelle. The purpose of the players’ letter is two-fald. First it deplores the fact that these. conflicts were never discussed with the players, when they certainly affected the team and its members. Secotidly, they wish to show their admiration for Ed DeArmon and they suggest that he be retained at Waterloo for his ability as a coach to transmit his knowledge and feelings to his players: His talent as a coach, was reflected by the successes of the wrestling team. Some of the play&s who have signed this letter don’t feel it is strong enough. Several of last year’s warriors state, off the record, that they would rather move to the Kitchener Oaks football team than play another year in the mess bf conflicts under head coach Wally Delahey. A number of people -feel the blame for not resolving the conflict should rest with the athletic director, Totzke. At least one person felt that if Totzke had done something sooner the prob-
Tenders are being called for construe tion of a four-building 171,000 sq. ft. addition to the engineering complex at the University of Waterloo, Bill Lobban, Director of PP & P has announced. It will be the first additidn to the engineering complex since 1967. Uniwat’s engineering enrolment is now the largest in Canada with 3,105 undergraduate and graduate students. Enrolment limits have been in effect
Advisory Board has not been consulted or even informed of the conflicts. Howie Petch informed a former football player in the fall that to his knowledge the Athletic Advisory Board makes suggestions concerning coaches to be ratified by him. AAB chairman, Ken Fryer, spoke of them as slightly les’s than suggestions. Carl Totzke says the AAB can only offer guidance. At the present time however, they have not been informed of the problem. One member of the board didn’t know who Ed DeArmon was. Assistant chairman, Jud Whiteside felt most members of the board knew little of the conflict going on presently behind closed doors and seemed eager to find out. None of the members of the board seem too sure what their responsibilities are. Totzke says the AAB makes decisions on policy of the athletic department, White&de seems to thinkthat the AAB deals with varsity sports, but some members say
the board almost never discusses varsity sports and has not in the past two years discussed coaches. Totzke says the board is responsible to the chairman of the ’ school of physical education. and recreation, but presently uniwat-doesn’t have one. He says the board is responsible for passing the athletic department budget. One member of ‘the board felt the budgets were rather vague and didn’t add up while Whiteside says this year’s budget has been turned down twice. Nothing seems to . be too certain in the athletic department these days. Apparently, Carl Totzke, in discussion with some of his staff (which includes as assistant athletic director, Wally Delahey) makes decisions con_ cerning the hiring and firing of coaches and decisions concerning varsity teams. With one coach leaving and other players and coaches entertaining the same idea, the time might be right for some kind of decision.
comes lems would have been solveable. As it is now, Ed DeArmon is leaving and Mike Lavelle is less than eager to be part of the football coaching staff as it now stands. Lavelle, head basketball coach, has also entertained the thought of taking a position else where. This could mean the loss of a championship wrestling coach, a basketball coach who led an 11-man team with 7 freshmen close to the OQAA play-offs, and a number of football players, all this because of a conflict with a football coach who has been a few years without a winning seasbn, and in two years as head coach here has yet to convince many of his competence. Delahey has a record of some previous conflicts. He cut Mike Martin, a quarterback who, after being an all-Ohio all-star, had professional scouts impressed enough to get offers from three Canadian teams. Delahey announced that Martin couldn’t make the warriors. The news was a total surprise to Martin. One aspect of the present problems is that the Athletic

It is estimated that construction costs for the initial foursection addition will exceed $5 million with another $2 million for equipment, fixtures and furnishing?. The addition is the first phase of a two-phase expansion program. Construction will begin this spring and be completed
its engineering by the fall of 1971. The second phase, consisting of two new sections to existing facilities is scheduled for occupancy in 1973. The phase one expansion is, in effect, four separate buildings each to be interconnected and tied to existing buildings within the complex. The second phase (to be completed in 1973) will of two involve the addition more sections to the existing
heavy laboratory wing - of the present facilities. The four sections will provide accommodation for 1,285 persons made up of 850 undergraduates, 270 graduate students, 90 faculty members and 75 support staff members. The space will house the two newest departments of the engineering faculty-systems design and management sciences as well as provide needed facilities for the chemical, civil,

electrical and mechanical engineering departments. The additions will alsd feature a new graphics lab which will incorporate services such as gas, air and water in addition to the closed circuit television facilities of the present graphics lab. It will also have a projection room. This will make the #lab a multi-purpose facility for instruction and experimentation in several areas in addition to drafting -and others using the present lab. A two-storey addition to the present Chemical Engineering building will include an underground “radiation bunker” for radiation research. Flexibility will be the keynote of a series of classrooms which will have wall partitions which can be folded back so that room sizes can be readily changed. The project falls within the space formula financing provisions of the Ontario Department of University Affairs. Financing is 95 per cent in government debentures and five percent from university funds for academic additions which meet a proven need based on a formula that relates space, enrolment and financing to the needs of both the individual university and the provincial university system. A supplementary project to the engineering additions is also being tendered. This is an enclosed pedestrian overpass to run from a large parking lot on the other side of University Avenue to the second floor of the new complex. This will provide safer passage for persons who presently have to contend with a heavy volume of traffic when coming on campus from the parking areas. This project has yet to be approved by the Ontario Department of University Affairs and would be financed separately from the engineering additions.

senate rejects of blackmail
KINGSTON (CUP) Four fifths of a special Queen’s University investigation committee agreed thursday (february 26) that chemical engineering professor Henry Becker was “utterly innocent” of charges of political blackmail levelled at him by one of his graduate students. The other one-fifth, student Terry O’Hara, was bodily ejected from a meeting of the Queen’s senate after a five-minute shoving match. O’Hara has insisted that PhD candidate Charles Edwardswho accused Becker of the blackmail-be allowed in the senate chambers to hear the committee’s verdict. Eight student society constables shoved O’Hara through the chamber’s doorway, which was blocked on the outside by members of Queen’s free socialist movement. The report, finally read “to the appropriate committees”, did give a mild slap on the wrist to chemical engineering department chairman Reginald Clark in reference to a visit to the campus by an RCMP officer last October. Edwards told the committee that Clark’s attitude toward him changed for the worse after the policeman’s visit. “With hindsight,” the report said,” Clark ought to have asked the policeman why he wanted to talk about Mr. Edwards. The report said there was a “danger that Mr. Edwards was being subjected to surveillance respecting his lawful political beliefs or activities,” and said the matter should be brought up in parliament.

“Despite Becker’s naiva te tiith regard to the RCMP,” the committee said they were not certain the professor “really had no idea” what the police wanted. Edwards, a member of the Free Socialist Movement, triggered the inquiry with a charge that Becker, his doctoral supervisor, gave him, on november 8, an ultimatum to choose between his studies and his radical politics. But the report-describing charges by ‘Edwards and other members of the FSM as “groundless attacks.. .on the academic and personal integrity of Mr. Becker and (to some extent) Mr. Clark”was primarily aimed at clearing the two faculty members. It recommended that “an infornial note” Edwards sent to Becker be regarded as a letter of withdrawl, or that the graduates students committee ask Edwards to voluntarily withdraw from his doctoral program and his duties as a laboratory demonstrator. Immediately following presentation of the report in senate, administration Dean of Applied Science J. H. Brown moved that Edwards,-and any student who declared membership in, or publicly supported, the FSM-be suspended for one year. The motion failed because Brown had not given a week’s notice of presenting it. “On every instance where there was a conflict between what the department said and what we. said, they’ (the committee) took the department’s “this side, ” he told reporters. is blatant repression. ”

Poor response proposed day by Andy
could scuttle cure centre
At two meetings held recently at the university and at Parkminister United Church in Waterloo, the future of the U of W day care center was discussed. The farmhouse on Bearinger Road, which the university has made available to the U of W women’s club for a day care center was the focus of attention at the meetings. The architecture department held a competition among its students for a design to renovate the interior of the farmhouse to suit government regulations and the winning design was shown to a local contractor for estimation purposes. He arrived at a figure of 15,000 dollars, well below that quoted recently by PP and P for the job. The work quoted on would create a facility sufficient to handle 34 children. Through a series of discussions with Dr. E Rhodes and Anne Edington of Parkminister day care center, Jean Weller drew up an operating budget for the center in the farmhouse. A working capital of 5000 dollars is required to open the school, with about 2000 dollars of this to be spent on the equipment required to operate it. The members of the day care center operating board are in the process of looking into possible sources of revenue to enable them to get the project off the ground.
The budget is to be presented to the administration on march 9th, to allow the university to determine the nature of any assistance they will give to the project, Donna Smuck, of Conestoga. College, remarked that opposition to the projected nursery by students on the grounds that the fee schedules are too high is unfounded. “To operate a qualified daycare center,” she said, “it is necessary to spend a certain amount of money. It costs money to operate buildings and to hire the qualified staff as required by the government. ” She mentioned that the city of Waterloo gives assistance for the provision of day care facilities to families with low incomes, and feels that students might qualify for this aid. Joan Enns said that the questionnairs she sent out by mail a few weeks ago to a large number of members of the university community went largely un-answered. “It is on the basis of response to these questionnaires that the board will make its plans for the future, ” she said. “If we get no response from the university community to these questionnaires we cannot guage the need for a day care center, nor can we present the administration with a proven need for such a facility. “Unless we can prove to the administration and other possible
sources of revenue that there is a real need for a center on campus, we will not be able to raise enough funds to open the school.” Rhodes said that his new day care ten ter in Parkminister United Church would be available to members of the university community for temporary enrollment of children. He also said that any students wishing to work with children are welcome to participate in the operation of the center. “We expect to have a full load of children by next September, he said, “But as we have just started operation we have enough facilities to take in several more children. We’d be happy to have students come here and be with the kids. It would be an enriching experience for the students, and would not hinder Anne in the operation of her programme in any way. ’ ’ Until the board receives -more questionnaires from the university community it will not know whether or not to operate a center here on campus, and if it does not know if such a facility is needed, it cannot go after the large sum of money required to open. Questionnaires are available at the check-out counter in the library. Anyone interested in a day care center should fill one out and deposit it in the box in the library, or mail it to Joan Enns, whose address is shown on the form.

The university of Toronto blues have won their fifth straight Queens Cup, defeating the warriors 7-4 in a hard fought championship game. For Waterloo it is the fourth year in a row that they have lost to the blues. Toronto now advances to represent the OQAA in the C.I.A.U. playoffs in Charlottetown, P.E.I. this coming-weekend. Many people felt that thiswas Waterloo’s year, that Toronto couldn’t possibly escape the law of averages after losing so many of their veteran stars. The fired-up blues quickly dispelled any thoughts of this by scoring two lightning fast goals in the first minute and a half and rapidly adding two more to give them a commanding lead: Once Waterloo recovered from their initial jitters the score had already reached the hopeless stage, thus making most of the game very anti-climactic. Before the screaming fans everhad a chance to sit down the blues swept into the warrior’s end. McGuinn dug the puck out of the corner to Laurent who fired a low shot on net. Goalie Ian Scott kicked it out but Nick Holmes cruised by and banged in the rebound. No sooner had the Lady Godiva band ceased its hideous din when they had cause to pipe up again. Bill Buba swept over the blueline, cut - inside the defence, and fired a perfect shot to the far corner. It was 2-O before most Waterloo fans even realized what had happened! Led by their speedy centres, the blues continued to dominate the game, cutting the warriors to pieces. Len Burman tipped in a St. John shot at 11: 23 and two minutes later John Wright made it 4-O on another tip in, this time from Terry Parsons. The stunned warriors finally came to their senses to stop the Toronto onslaught. Bob Reade capped a fine effort by Phil Branston who had cleverly out manoeuvred defenceman Dave McDowall to get into scoring position. Less than a minute later Savo Vujovic put the warriors back into the game with a long screened shot to the corner. Although the first period ended with little hope, the warriors won the admiration of everyone by showing their ability to come back, something they have done every game against Toronto. If any one moment can be described as the turning point of the game it occurred early in the second period when the blues were two men short. Dave Rudge missed a sure goal by shooting over the top of an empty net from less than ten feet out. A couple of minutes later Brian St. John deked around the Waterloo defence to score the winning goal on a breakaway. A great hush fell over the large Waterloo cheering section as all realized that the game was lost. Before the night was over Bill Buba and Bob McGuinn added insult to injury while Roger Kropf and Dave Rudge scored for Waterloo. Dave Field ran his penalty total to five, to give the blues 11 out of 16 minor calls.
Last Saturday was Paul Laurent’s last home game. Here he is seen in one of many dangerous rushes.

The great defensive work of the blues saved goalie Grant Cole on many occasions. Speed, muscle and injuries told the story of this game. The blues outskated the warriors the whole evening, continually beating them to the puck and breaking in on goalie Ian Scott time and time again. This, coupled with pin point passing and accurate shooting, enabled Toronto to have by far the better scoring opportunities. As expected the blues again out hit the warriors, particularly in their own end. Mike Boland and Bob Hamilton were extremely effective, keeping the Waterloo forwards off balance most of the game. Injuries to key men such as Bob Reade, Ken Laidlaw and Cam Crosby contributed to defeat. Reade missed the second period with a re-injured shoulder, ‘while Laidlaw was out of the third with a banged up ankle. Cam Crosby suffered a broken leg against Ottawa the night before and naturally did not play. The blues gained a spot in the finals by literally annihilating the Montreal carabins 11-O. In the other game the warriors won a hard fought 7-3 decision over the Ottawa gee gees. Scoring for Waterloo was Laidlaw with two, Bacon, Rudge, Sephton, Maloney, and Kropf.
Aube, Fawcett, and Secours replied for Ottawa. Against the gee gees the warriors played one of their most aggressive games of the season. Roger Kropf, Savo Vujovic, Rick Maloney and Dennis Farwell all used their weight to good advantage. As the last few minutes ticked off one could not help but feel a twinge of nostalgia, knowing that at least five top players would not be back. In Paul Laurent the blues lose one of the most talented players ever to play in Canadian intercollegiate hockey. In addition to his five years of service, Toronto also loses Bob Hamilton and eight year veteran Bryan Tompson. Ken Laidlaw and Bob Reade, two of Waterloo’s best players ever, will also not likely be returning next year. LOOSE PUCKS-all things considered it has been another very successful hockey season for Waterloo. On f riday there will be a recap with a few final thoughts.

Dave Vardon, the Hammershod hold-out, has finally lead co-op to its first championship game in a team sport. The “white and blue” by virtue of their 5-2 trouncing over the freshmen from habitat advance to the finals in floor hockey against the over-thehill gang-grads. Norm Sauve, I always wanted a coat like that, popped three goals in the habitat game. Grads also have never captured a major team title. They are led by Dave Finden, who got three goals for upper math in last year’s final. Game time of the final is 7 pm tonight at Seagram stadium. The ice hockey, it sounds like Bill Mazer when you call it ice hockey, saw grads meet upper engineering on sunday night past. The following are the scores of the play-off games which set the stage for the final: quarterfinals habitat st jeromes upper eng grads upper arts vi11 north frosh eng renison

Four of the University of Waterloo wrestlers and their coach travelled out west last weekend with the rest of the OQAA team for a meet with the rest of the country for the Canadian wrestling championships. The warriors who went were OQAA champions Pat Bolger, John Barry, Jim Hall, and George Saunders. Bolgr, Hall and Saunders all won the Canadian championship for their weight class and Barry placed second in his. ‘None of the warriors lost any of their matches. Hall had been sick for three days before and during the meet and was not wrestling up to his standard, but still was good
enough to win the CIAU title. Bolger had also ‘been sick for the two days before the tourney but was not apparently affected during the matches. Barry suffered one draw in one of his matches which cost him a national title. The match was protested by the OQAA coach Ed DeArmon and the official scoring table agreed with Barry’s side of the disagreement. The referee’s decision stood, however, and the match resulted in a draw. Barry finished second because of the draw and the warriors lost the team title to Alberta because of it. Alberta won the team title with six wrestlers in the ten weight classes. The warriors were second with only four participants.

. ED. SEPT. 3-I arrived at school the 2nd day in the afternoon and went straight to see Miss Cheatley, the viceprincipal. I told her I wanted to transfer I from room 6 (a totally tennybopper room ‘cept for one kid) to room 12. Room 12 has a progressive minded teacher, is a go-at-yer own pace room, has’ a friend of mine in it who also has radical ideas, and doesn’t have French or Latin. I said I thought most of the courses were irrelevant and archaic. She told me my hair was unclean and too long. I say it is unimportant. She says she’s going to try an experiment with me. I get 8-10 periods per cycle off to go to the library an read (even books from home, except “obscene literature”). However, I must co-operate with teachers an keep up my “high standard” of marks (an clean my hair). I say I do not consider marks important an I’ll see about my hair. She also tells me room 12 is made up of morons with social promotions an summer school pasts an I’m just so smart I’d be bored there. Also says I must stay in room 6 since I was one of the 90 top students in the school last year (untrue). -Also tells me 2 friends of mine who formerly attended River Heights only attended Robertson House 3 weeks last year (untrue) an that it (the House) is not in operation anymore (untrue). Also says Shaf tsbury doesn’t start until grade 10 (untrue). I ask about the dress laws-why sweat-shirts with “messages” an pants on girls are not permitted. She says nowadays what with boys wearing long hair if girls wore jeans you couldn’t tell the boys from the girls. We argue to no availI get my timetable an go to Guidance where I fill out the form with things like: What would yer family like you to be? : a supersuck conformist. Do you watch much TV?: No, it’s crappy cause it’s so biased an censored: only the occasional documentary. Who would you consult if you had a problem?: Fred the Zebra. And so on. Thurs. : Come in afternoon. I asked science teacher why we’d been taking flowers for six yearstold him, I’d picked, tasted an worn flowers, an I wasn’t gonna be a botanist. “Well, what are you going to be?” “ Well, I don’t really see that that’s important,.I’m just saying that this isn’t particularly relevant. ” “Well, I-I-I don’t see what difference it makes whether or not you’re going to be a botanist. This is my class an I’ll decide what’s to be taught.” i.e. I’m the t,eacher yer the student. . After 4:00 am told if I wanna see Miss Cheatley I should come 8: 45 tomorrow morning. Friday 8:45: Miss Cheatley tells me I didn’t cut my hair, did I, an I haven’t been attending classes. I’ve betrayed her. I tell her my hair is unimportant and I just can’t take classes, they’re so boring and badly taught. She says for me to be a good boy or I don’t get to read in the library. Also, this 8-period skip-out deal doesn’t start for another 2 ‘weeks so in the meantime I should “prove myself. ” In social studies I say I’ll bring a notebook if I figure I need one. I don’t come friday afternoon because of my guts. Monday: No ones at home so I put on a Canned Heat record, Refried Boogie (wow! ) Am dancing to it when doorbell rings. I never answer anything when I’m listening to a record. He works over to the side door an finally, near the records end, looks in the back window. I give in an extra bump ‘n grind an answer the door. It’s Ben Hanuschak, speaker of the house an River Heights guidance teacher. “Why aren’t you in school?” “What for?” (real cooly-my moment of truth-I know how I’m not afraid of “authority”) “What for? Well-blablabla...” . “What for? Idon’t give a damn ‘bout school.” “C’mon, get yer things, let’s go.” I take off the record, get my leather jacket an we’re off to a 7% hour discussion in the guidance office. It is physically exhausting since he is not really listening, just thinking up ways to refute my opinions. Samples : B.H. : “Well, I mean, these free schools aren’t any good. Why what if a whole class shows up an the teacher doesn’t show up, what then? Why, how would you like it if one day I just didn’t feel like coming, and all my classes were waiting for me?” Me: “Well Idon’t really think they’d have a fit
sir. There isn’t too much dependence on guidance teacher y’know. Do you like yer job?” B.H.: “Why yes, I-I do like it....” Me: “Then why would you not want to show up for school?” B.H.: “Miss Cheatley tells me she made you a proposition.’ ’ Me: “That thing was worthless. It meant I had to cut my hair an study an show up for classes just to get a little so-called privilege. I can read at home.” B.H. : “But what if the leaders of this so-called movement, the people you believe in decide they need an education and a job an go back to school an fit into our system, what then?” Me: (pause, then slowly) “Sir, you must be very very naive. This is a mass movement more than that, a life style, involving 100,000’s of people. It can’t just disappear. It’s too big for that. It’s gone too far. There’s got to be some kind of Revolution.” That knocked him out. B.H.: “But you should get good marks. It’s important.” Me: “The school is a tool for fitting people into the establishment. I’m a musician and an artist an I don’t care to fit into it. I’m sick an tired of marks. They’re meaningless. They’re just to impress people. “, Noon hour-Lang. teacher discusses school an poetry for 15 minutes with me. Very stupid man. Frustrating. Invites me to bring poem of my choice. l:lO-Come with two friends to see Cheatley about school newspaper. We had an appointment, but she cancels it.” “ Come see me Wednesday after I address the grade 9’s.” I leave. Tues. morn.-1 bring Dog Breath (in the Year of the Plague) by Frank Zappa for my Lang. teacher. We spend 15 min. analyzing it ( ! ) Tues. aft. I don’t come. Wed. morn-Cheatley talks for 15 minutes, introducing teachers, telling us to stand straight for 0 Canada, etc. At the end she asks for questions. None. Impromptu Latin test. One kid who was away doesn’t have to write it, but I do. Have presidential re-elections because last time I was away, so the kids weren’t allowed to vote for me. Both the president and vice-president aren’t interested in running for school president. I am unanimously elected. I go to office for meetingwhere sons for the “campaign.” By wed. aft. almost sons for the “campaign.” By wed. aft. almost whole school knows I am elected. Thurs. aft.-Get my Latin test back: 3%/20. “What happened Harry?” “I made mistakes. ” “Did you study?” “No.” “You didn’t study? ” “That’s what I said.” “Do you know how to conjugate verbs?” “Yes.” “You do know?” “Yeah.” “But you got them wrong.” “That’s right.” “Have you any questions?” “Why do we take Latin-to understand English or what?” “Well, un yes, that, an also to get a little culture.” “Culture is a matter of opinion. ” “Well. don’t you consider it important?” “No, I don’t feel I have to speak a dead language fluently to the man on the street. ” “Well, you don’t have to speak fluent Latin, just a bit of it.” “But why do we take it?” “Well Look, who is the teacher?” “That wasn’t the question.” “Don’t you want to take it, you don’t have to you know, do you wanna see Miss Cheatley about dropping it?” “Okay.” “You can see her now if you want.” “Alright.” Cheatley tells me I may have to drop a few other subjects too. The teachers have been complaining
about my attitude“boorish an disrespectful.” Me: “That’s a lie. I was simply expressing my freedom of speech. ” She says she is sending me to a tutorial school till I can fit back into the system. “I really don’t care to fit into your outmoded system. ” It’s a 3% day a week deal and on inquiry she says she doesn’t know anything about its curricula. We argue about why the kids didn’t ask questions at Wednesday’s address. I say it’s because after nine years of school they’ve been conditioned to be scared stiff of the teachers. Her: “Are you saying the teachers think they’re better than the students?” and so onShe mentioned by attitude again after and I say: “Yeah, I’m not like the other kids, I don’t try to butter up the teachers an impress em to get in good. I don’t compromise.’ She says “get out” an I keep talking so she gets up an says get out. I leave asking why a teacher only in the school 3 days was allowed to pick the members of the newspaper staff. She says I can leave right now if I want. I stay for guidance. In the meantime I have Maths. I ask how taking sets pertains to everyday life. He says Maths is a code. I say: “Exactly, an I understand it, but how does it pertain to everyday life?” He says Maths gives experience in thinking and this is important. I say “yes, but couldn’t we think of something more relevant?” After 10 minutes of this verbal nowhere, he says: “Who’s the teacher here, Harry, who’s authority do you respect?” I say: “yours sir, but that’s only because there’s no one else here with the experience to teach Maths. Thing is, I don’t consider what you’re teaching particularly important. I can add, subtract, multiply an divide, what more do I need?” He says if that’s the way I feel I needn’t work in classes anymore. As long as I don’t “bother” anybody I can keep coming. I go to Guidance. In Guidance our teacher (a nice but rather naive man from the University) asks what should we take this year. I suggest sex education. Surprisingly the class takes this seriously without any of the usual giggles. I say we should all learn about VD an stuff because in a few years we’re all gonna have intercourse anyway. He says yes, we should have sex education except often parents object. I say it should not just be taught biologically. He says yes, morally too. I say, but without frightened teachers an with the kids expressing their own viewpoints too. The kids are quite pleased with me as we leave class. Friday afternoon I arrive, give my English teacher 10 pages of poetry by Paul Simon, John Kay, etc. with suggestions for Dylan, Buckley, Ginsberg, etc. Go straight to Cheatley. Am sitting in outer office when she comes out. She stares at me for a full minute while I stare back cooly, then says “Harry.” I say “Is this my last day of school ?” She says “What?” even though she hears me. I repeat it. She gets flustered and tells me to stand up when I talk to her. I wait about half a minute, then slowly slouch to my feet. “Is this my last day of school?” “Well, I-I don’t know-the tutorial centre can’t fit you in for awhile, so-you won’t be starting for a few days. I’ll call you when they’re ready.” “I was elected president of my room, you know.” “Oh, well, you can’t possibly run for president now. We can’t have a president coming on half days. Besides, a president must show the proper leadership qualities and I certain/y don’t think you...” “I was elected unanimously. I must be some kind of leader then, eh?” She stands there for a moment, then says: “Well, you can still come to school for the next few days until the centre has an opening, as long as you behave in class and don’t bother the teachers.” “What do you mean by not bothering the teachers -keeping my mouth shut?” “Well, yes, that’s part of it-” “I see. So much for my freedom of speech.” And I walked out. P.S.-If I don’t seem to have done much for the school, I didn’t. I only hope some of my friends back in there can. Teachers have been teaching so long they’ve forgotten how to teach. -from

Throughout the free world and in many places not so free, the cry goes out from young people, “Tell it like it is.” Two films, known collectively as **Prague, the summer of tanks,*’ to be shown Friday, night in Al. 116, by The Kinetic Art, do just that. A moving, in-depth study of two of the most important events in Europe in this decade, these documentaries were smuggled to neighboring countries and forwarded here for release to North american audiences. Part I of Prague, the summer of tanks deals with the invasion of Czechoslovakia last august and the reactions of the Czech people. It was filmed by experienced Czech cameramen who must remain anonymous. From the mid-night landings of Russian planes at Prague airport through all the shocking events which followed, the camera explores the real drama of the crisis-the courage and determination of the residents. The film is an accurate and moving forty-five minute chronicle of oppressed people bravely standing by their hope for the future while living with terror of the present. Four French cinema students collaborated to produce Part IIThe right to speak, one of the films which were banned from showings in France. This fifty-five minute film details every aspect of the efforts of French university students to take a firm stand against the Establishment. Here is an explicit picture of a people in revolt, but with entirely different objectives than the Czechs. In Czechoslovakia the right to pursue the freedoms and material things they had just begun to taste was at stake. The youth of France, however, directed their movement against bourgeois values, and sought the right to make their voice heard. The film documents the strides the students made and their setbacks during four imp‘assioned months which eventually gained some of the university reforms they so greatly wanted. Repercussions of these two events are still being felt every where. The drama in them is a real factor to young people who seek to form their own opinions, ideals and values. The Kinetic Art won critical acclaim recently with three act film programs which premiered in New York’s Linclon Center and are now being seen in concert across the country. Known for presenting the unique and unusual in cinema art, Prague, the summer of tanks is a distinguished addition to Kinetic’s repertoire.

SUPPORT , MINOR HOCKEY
Keep In Step With Canada OBSERVE
-HOCKEY WEEK Is there
-YOUR BOY TO TliE ARENA-!. About 850 Waterloo boys are actively engaged in minor hockey activities. While the city may provide them with all the necessary playing facilities, the program could not function without the help of the adult volunteers who give their time and patience to making the program work. These are the people who deserve the community’s thanks for their efforts in keeping our youngsters actively involved in healthy projects. But there is another reason why minor hockey endeavors deserve a boost. Its contribution to the country’s economy cannot be ignored. It has been estimated that it contributes about $6,000,000 annually to sporting goods stores, manufacturers, insurance companies, gasoline stations, restaurants, bus companies and arenas. And that, boast.

The knowledge of Ed DeArmon’s retirement plans have brought the problems of the athletic department into the open. As the department stands now, its director Carl Totzke has the power to make the day to day decisions as well as the more long range ones. Once a month, Totzke gets together over dinner with a small circle of friends and asks for ratification of his decisions by the Athletic Advisory Board. The board is under the chairmanship of .Ken Fryer from the math department and includes a representative from engineering,
petty empires in the jock department
arts, science, some intramural student, and college representatives and a few athletic department members. These include Totzke and Wally Delahey (assistant director of athletics). Most of the meetings are apparently taken up by plans announced by Totzke for approval of the group. Sometimes the out-people ask questions which are shrugged off with a knowing smile. But these are usually questions of a minor nature-like why doesn’t the budget add up? The more important questions, .
such as who is making the decisions in the athletic department, why is Ed DeArmon going to leave uniwat and what about the conflicts with head football coach Wally Delahey, nevercome to discussion in these friendly monthly meetings. It seems to be a very convenient position for the athletic department. They explain only what they wish to this board and leave the rest of the problems behind. The board does not have the power to demand anything (unless Tqtzke gives it permission) and in most cases the out-people haven’t even heard of the in-problems. The board is supposed to be responsible to the chairman of the school of phys ed and ret, so, uniwat is presently advertising for a chairman. Maybe when he is found, by whom it’s not quite sure, the athletic .department will be responsible to someone as well. Perhaps when the chairman is found he will enlighten the AAB as to what the hell they are supposed to be doing. In the fall the board sent a letter to Howie Petch asking for clarification of their duties and re-
sponsibilities but no ans.wer has been forthcoming. The board doesn’t know just which of Totzke’s proposals it can change. And if it is not theirs to change they do not want to cause too much trouble for their dinner companions. The group is rather friendly and they all have to face one another for dinner at the faculty club again next month. All this says nothing about one of the most important problems concerning’varsity sports. That is, who picks the coaches. Petch seemed to think it was the AAB’s job to make strong suggestions to him. Totzke tells’us that it is not the job of the board but of his department. If it is in fact done by his department there is a problem. Uniwat has only one varsity team with a losing record. And it is the same team which has players who say they will not play again under the present head coach. That team is the football team and the coach is Wally Delahey. The problem is that Delahey is Totzke’s right hand man. When it comes time to vote on coaches as Phil Ochs said, If that was an election, Then I’m a viet tong.
