PETER FOSTER: with an air of resignation 

Retains senate seat 

Foster resigns 


"It is with some regret, but a 
sense of accomplishment,, that rl

Peter Foster handed his letter 
of resigantion to President Robert 
Hajaly yesterday. Hajaly, Hyman 
and Foster, had run as a slate for 
the Students' Society executive 
positions last spring. Foster will 
retabi his Senate seat. 

The resignation becomes effec- 
tive January 31, 1969 or at the 
election of his successor, which- 
ever is earlier. By-elections will 
most lilcely be held during the 
third weeic after the new term be- 
gins in January but Chief Return- 
ing Officer Chris Porter has not 
yet set a date. Foster says -be

but the whiner does not take office 

In hisMettèj'tojajaly,^:^^ 
gave the 'réââbn'rof' his* résigna- 
tion as the restrictions of his 
post hi trying to carry out his 
election program. "Ever since I 
assumed office last spring... I 
have been increashigiy aware of 
the limitations of my position; the 
responsibilities "^are serious, but 
abo constricting. I have for some 
time thou^t that to contmue 
worMng for these goals, I should 
.turn elsewhere." 

'Foster said he felt a fundamen- 
tal redirection of = the^ Students' 
Society had been achieved during 
his term, changing the Society 
from "a social club and service 
organization" to a democratic 
students union woridng for radic- 
al change hi the Univenity Itself . . 

Foster refused to attribute^y 
spedfic achievements to'fjîiit'oné

them in the perspective of the

by Robert Wallace 

Student senator Robert Hajaly 
read to' an uncomfortable Senate 
last Tuesday a^ petition signed 
by 1000 students and 35 faculty 
members demanding an investi- 
gation of ttic refusal of the Mc- 
Connell Fellowships subniom- 
mittee to award a fellowship to 
John Fcl<ete, despite his acade- 
mic qualifications. 

Two full professors, J. R. Mai- 
lory and A. E. Mallocii, resigned 
from the sub<ommlttee because 
they believed liiat criteria other 
than academic ability had been 
taicen into account. Professor 
Malioch distributed copies of 
his letter of resignation. It said 
in part that "... the practices of 
the committee up until now have 
(not) contemplated refusing a 
fellowship to a qualified applicant 
on . the grounds that he did not 
l^seem the proper sort of person 
?to^receive such a fellowship, or 
on the grounds that he had failed 
to show proper respect for the 
University ... I consider the spe- 
cial criteria applied to Mr. Fc-

presentation which students 
fought for during their eleven-

Nominations took place Tues- 
day and Wednesday for seven 
seats on section, two seats on 
the appohitments committee, 
eight on curriculum, one on the 
steerir.^ committee, and two 
for the committee approvhig

Forty-three nominations were 
received for the twenty positions 
- there were three acclamations. 

Voting will take place .in the 
Leacock lobby. All students ta- 
king at least one politicar scien- 
ce course are eligible to' vote hi

eight hundred students are eligi-

kete's application irrelevant 
and invalid". 

Senator Peter Foster has said 
Fekete was refused because of 
his political activities.- 

'Hajaly rose to read the petition 
on' a "point of privilege" near 
the beginning of Tuesday's meet- 
ing. Although this procedure had 
been used by Dean Woods in the 
previous meeting to read a re- 
port on the student walk-in at 
an Arts and Science faculty meet- 
ing, some senators wanted Haja- 
ly ruled out of order, 

A squabble ensued over the 
provisions of Roberts' Rules of 

Hajaly sat down. After a brief 
but unusual silence, Foster rose 
to present a motion setting up a 
committee to investigate the. 
activities of the sub-committee, 
particularly in regard to the Fe- 
kete case. Once agins, procedu- 
ral objections were raised, and 
Senate voted not to consider the 
motion until it comes up -in the 
regular order of business that 
is, when the minutes of the No- 
vember 20 meeting are discussed. 

This may be a couple of months 
from now. 

A majority of senators voted 
to shelve a proposal by Profes- 
sor Malloch that would create a 
committee to study the question 
of appointments and tenure poli- 
cy. The committee would be com- 
posed of three students, three 
staff members and three adminis- . 
trators. i 

Dean Woods proposed an' 
amendment that would allow no 
student representation on the 
committee whatsoever. 

He said that this was a matter 
of the "contractual relationship" 
between administration and 
staff not of the status of indivi- 
dual professors are involved. 

Hajaly^^made an analogy bet- 
weôïfiênure regulations and stu- 
dènt'^discipline. The latter, he 
said, was also a "contractual 
relationship" between adminis- 
tration and students, but. as part 
of the university community, 

faculty were involved in much 
the same way as students were 
involved in staff appointments 
and tenure. 

The staff-administration con- 
tractual relationship would deter- 
mine the status of individual pro- 
fessors, he said, therefore the 
distinction Woods had made was 
not valid. . 

Professor Charles. Leblond ob- 
jected that the McGill Association 
of University/'Teachers had set 
up a committee to study the role 
of students in university govern- 
ment as it affected the profes- 
sional interests of its members. 

It had requested that the uni- 
versity not alter any contractual 
agreements until it had reached 
a decision. 

Professor^ Mallpry. pointed out 
that his moUoii'ih^no way altered 
any contractual agreement. He 
added that he had consulted with 
the president of MAUT on the 
matter, and that the latter had 
not objected to Senate's conside- 
ring his motion right away. 

Nevertheless, a motion by Pro- 
fessor Yaffe to table I^lloch's 
proposal until the MAUT com- ■ 
mittee had reported (sometime 
towards the end of January) was 

The major matter of importan- 
ce which Senate decided not to 
postpone was a proposal for the 
establishment of a joint Queen's 
:r^McGUI University Press. An 
amendment by Nigel Hamer which 
would have added one McGill 
and one Queen's student to the 
Editorial Committee of the Press 
was defeated. The proposal as a 
whole was approved. 

Senate will hold its regular 
monthly meeting next Wednesday 
at 2:10 pm in the Leacock Coun- 
cil Room, eighth floor. 

Tuesday's meeting was forced 
to adjourn after only two hours 
because of a previously schedu- 
led Engineering Faculty meeting... 
Only four items on the lengthy 
printed agenda were dealt with.!.

' Racism: 

You take it with you 

by Brian Tannebaum 

T. D. Tawley, in|nister for the 
Black Panther Party, speaking on 
racism in Canada yesterday told, 
his audience "I am for revolu- 
tionary violence." 

When white society, because 
of its racist nature, is violent to 
black men, those blacks should 
reciprocate in kind, he said. 

The Panthers have come to Ca- 
nada, Tawley- said,,- , because, 
"Black people must have an undy- 
ing love for each other. We must 
go wherever black people are." 
He added, "Wherever you Qnd 
black people, you find racism". 

Canadians are "economically, 
politically, and socially Ameri- 
cans. . America is racist. There- 
fore Canada is racist." If a Cana- 
dian identifies with Britain, he is 
identifying with a racist country 
and consequently is racist him- 
self. The same applies if he iden- 
tifies with France. 

Tawley further maintahied that 
"Canada has given nothing to the 
family of man. " Trudeau's Just 
Society is more a means of po- 
litical survival than an honest 
attempt to make this sodety tru- 

It is apparent that- education 
has served to aid racism, Tawley 
said "Education is merely per- 
petuation of the values of the ra- 


trying to organize Halifax blacks. 
He said that the blacks in HaUfax 
are becomhig aware but are not 
yet militarily prepared to con- 
front white racism in the form of 
the police. 

This confrontation, vihm it co- 
mes, will be violent. However, 
Tawley pohited out that black vio- 
lence must be .viewed as self- 

Douglas was sentoiced to a fine 
or imprisonment a week ago last 
Thursday. However, with the 
threat of violence in the black 
community the police wanted to

to an audience in the Union ballroom yesterday. 

still moving 

A jobit student-faculty com- 
mittee representing the Philo- 
sophy Department and the 
Union of Philosophy Students 
(UPS) has unanimously recom- 
mended student parity on the 
department council and "rough- 
ly the same proportion" on 
all committees of the depart- 
ment. The committee promo- 
tions and appohitments will 
nevertheless have substantial 
student representation. 

The proposal, made by . Pro- 
fessor McKhmon,wias.' accep- 
ted by the eight roan conunlt- 
tee — itself composed of half 
students, half faculty - with lit- 
tle debate. It now goes to the 
UPS and the faculty for ratifi- 

The proposed restructuring 
of the department would have 
a central Departmental Council 
composed of all fuU-thne 
staff . members and an equal 
number of students elected 1^ 
UPS. The promotions commit- 
tee would have a majority of 
senior faculty, with students 
having a majority of the re- 
mainder and junior faculty get- 
ting the rest This year, the 
composition would be 7-4-2. 

All committees of the depart- 
ment would be answerable to 
tlie Departmental Council. 

The proposal also provides 
for open meetings of the Coun- 
cil and its conunittees, except 
in special cases. The members 
of the conunission have asked 
the Chairman of the Philosophy 
Department to make open the 
faculty meeting which will dis- 
cuss the commbsion report. 

Any changes in the composi- 
tion of the conmiittee would 
be by a 2/3 vote on the Council. 
There is also a provision to al- 
low a re-examination by facul- 
ty members of the principle 
of student participation in 
October, 1970 should they so 

Tom Reigel, UPS rep on 
tlie commission expressed sa- 
tisfaction with the report. "It 
came easier than we expected", 
he said. "It's good that the fa- 
culty commissioners accepted 
the principle of parity so quick-

ker was also pleased. "I'm 
glad that an agreement was 
arrived at with no hostility.

The university scene 

The fall temi, far from devel- 
oping into the year of the barri- 
cade projected by a frightened 
media, was more a~ transitional 
period in the reorientation of 
the student movement 

There were meaningless, tra- 
ditional protests over ID cards,

Voices from the 
lost generation 

A ; tare .i,opportuhily4 presents 
itself to students tonight at Moyse 

Hall when Colonel Garrield Dun- 
can lectures on the Battle of Ko- 
rea. Colonel Duncan has recent- 
ly returned from Korea where he 
was attachedi{ô^U^Û.S?/Artny 
Medical Corosr%5^^ ' v'^;;v 

The Korean crisis ': has ; t)een 
fully written about, hut we doubt- 
that any student here has, as yet, 
heard an eye witness report, of 
the war. However accurate news 
accounts and stories from cor- 
respondents are, they fail to give 
as much insight into any subject 
as a lecture by an actual observer. 
While we can only guess as to 
exactly what CoL Duncan will say 
tonight, we feel sure he will pro- 
vide us with that "personal ; 
touch", recounting to us anecdo- 
tes and tragedies of th conflict 
that will bring the war closer to 
our minds. ^ 

Even though most of us would 
like to Iceep the thought of any 
war in the bacli of our minds, the 
action of both thè United Nations 
and the Chinese Communists in 
Korea will be the determining 
factors for either world peace or 
world war in the ne ar. f utore. We 
as students have!a|^ra^erest 
. in the outcome of 'the^liuation. 
The battle, if it comes;' will be 
our battle, the peace, our peace. 
Hence it is ahnost imperative 
that the roots of the situation are 

firmy fixed in our minds. 

Korea has become an all too 
familiar topic of late, but a more 
complete understanding of the 
situation there, of its human and 
personal ramifications is impera- 
tive to us all. As a doctor and a 
McGill graduate Colonel Duncan 
in his lecture will be able to aid 
us in the achievement of that aim. 
-McGill Daily, Decemtwr 14, 

Dr. F. Cyril James, Principal 
and Vice-chancellor of McGill 
University, has just returned from 
a two and one-half week trip to 

Israel and England. 

Plie vËitèd England as McGill's 
representative at the appointment 
of the Queen Mother to the posi- 
tion of Chancellor of the Univer- 
sity of London. The Israel jaunt 
was the result of an invitation 
fromj^Ute Hebrew University in 
Jérusalem to deliver a series of 
lectures there. 

Dr. James mentioned two. 
things that impressed him during 
his stay in the Holy Land. The 
wonderful provisions^ for higher 
education at Jerusalem and the 
whole series of new technological 
buildings at Haifa were singled 
out as being very modem and up- 

In Jerusalem, he noted that 
while "Canada HaU". the build- 
ing sponsored by the Hadassah, 
was the only one completcd. both 
the Biolo^cal and Humanities 
buildings were nearing comple- 
tion. Since the old edifices on Mt. 
Scopus were now inaccessible, 
these new buildings vmvAd fill a 
- great need of the students there. 

The Haifa buildings were men- 
tioned as spectacular examples 
of modem science and would de- 
finitely make any of our own 
Engineers "green with envy" sin- 
ce the entire institute could well 
rival some of the establishments 
atNÏITin the United States. 

The rapid rate of economic 
development, especially in the 
agricultu>;al field, impressed Dr. 
James very highly. He said that 
the Israelis were doing great 
work in many new fields and 
great strides were being taken in 
the growing of cotton and flax 
besides the old stand-bys ^such 
as wheat, barley and the citrus 
fruits. Reforestation is especially 
extensive and this program is 
important in absorbing the exten- 
sive immigration that is going on. 

The Queen Mother's appoint- 
ment in London was considered 
by Dr. James as "one of the most 
impressive ceremonies" he had 
ever witnessed. He maintained 
that this practice of appointing 
royalty to posts such as these 
was a relatively new thing. For 
instance, the Pnncess Royal who 
was a McGill Convocation visitor 
this year is the first Woman Chan- 
cellor in British History, holding 

that position at Leeds. As well, 
there is absolutely no precedent 
for a Queen Mother to bé a Chan- 
cellor of a University, 'i " ; 

These appointments are impor- 
tant, however, as they manifest a 
growing interest on the part of 
royalty in educational things as 
well as giving the various uni- 
versities a great deal of prestige. 
-McGill Daily, page one, 
December 6, 1955 

It seems as if the University 
administration has been affected 
by the holiday spirit. In the latest 
edition of the McGill News, they 
have announced plans for a 
sweeping revision of the scholar- 
ships program at McGill. It is 
only unfortunate that these chan- 
ges, which have been in the plan- 
ning stages for many months, 
were announced at this time. We 
refer to the fact that the Univer- 
sity of Toronto as put forward a 
similar set of proposals several 
weeks ago and consequently Mc 
Gill seems to be following rather 
than leading. . 

In fact, however, this McGill 
report is of tremendous signi- 
ficance. It represents exhaustive 
studies carried on by the Univer- 
sity Scholarships committee 
under the able chairmanship of 
Dr Muriel Roscoe... 

According to the Committee, 
the purpose of any student aid 
program is threefold: (1) to bring 
to McGill outstanding students 
wherever they are to be found in 
Canada. (2) to assist those es- 

pecially able students who would 
normally form McGill's special 
constituency, and (3) to provide 
.financial relief to a large group 
of competent students. These 
various purposes need to be met 
by different kinds of student aid. 

We agree particularly with one 
aspect of the program which will 
probably not make headlines but 
which will add a great deal to the 
life and character to the Univer- 
sity. It is the following: 

"Greater recognition should be 
given to scholarship per se apart 
from financial aid. A scholarship 
is an honour granted to recog- 
nize outstanding academic per- 
formance. Where financial aid is 
required, scholastic' standing 
should be considered in deter- 
ming the amount and the nature 
of the award. Administratively, 
awards of scholarship and finan- 
cial aid should be separated." 

While the students have been 
doing their best to bring the plight 
of the Quebec Universities to the 
public eye, it is good to see the 
administration working on some 
relief from another angle. The 
problem is certainly acute and 
every segment of the McGill Com- 
munity should be trying to combat 

But now the holidays are upon 
us. We put down our placards and 
press releases for a while and 
take a rest from Provincial poli- 
tics and education problems. Next 
term, we begin again. But now we 
wish you all the best on this 
holiday season.

I was distressed to read on page three 
of the McGill Dally of Friday, December 6th 
an article headed^'S.G.W.U. Racism". In 
the body of ^iî^1^ext; -it was indicated that 
"Mr. Anderson is now suspended and pend- 
ing investiption will be fired". It was also 
said "The students have selected a repla- 
cement named Menon who has agreed to re- 
place Anderson". I should point out to you 
that these statements are completely wrong. 
While accusations have been levelled at Mr. 
Anderson, he has requested that he be re- 
lieved of his courses pending an bivestiga- 
tion. In no sense has the university suspen- 
ded him, and your statement saying pendhig 
investigation be will be fired, prejudges Uie 
issue,.. since no formal charges Jiave yet 
been made, and a hearing has not been hdd, 
and therefore the question of his guilt or in- 
nocence with respect to Uiese charges has 
not yet been proved. 

Mr. Menon is not replacing Mr. Ander- 
son. For the time behig, his classes are 
not meeting. 

I shicerely hope that the McGill Daily 
will publish a retraction in justice to Mr. 
Anderson, and present the true facts of Uie

In behalf of the Young Socialists - Ligue 
des Jeunes Sodalistes and the McGill Young 
Socialist Gub, I would like to bring to your 
attention certain grave errors bi your ar- 
ticle on the Bagot election, (Daily, Dec. 3). 

Referring to Michel MiU and the YS/US 
campaign, the article states: "hi Monti-éai, 
where la -Ligue has its offlces (it doesn't 
and won't have one in Uie county). . .". This 
is false, and tends to convey a fabe image 
of our campaign. 

In fact, the US maintained a head- 
quarters in the county during the campaign, 
advertised it widely, and received a sur- 
prishig number of yisitors and sympathizers -

a significant number of students and young 
workers from the region. We distributed. 
10,000 leaflets and put 800 posters in the 
riding itself. AU this in contradistinctbm 
to the "Pouvoir Etudiant" people, who ma- 
de exactly one afternoon foray into the 
county, and did no serious work with the 
people Uiere. . 

But this error pales in comparison with 
the incredibly arrogant statement: "Uie gen- 
eral prosperity of Bagot witii its alummum- 
sided dweUinp, new automobiles and low 
unemployment rate takes the wind from the 

We don't know what method your reporter 
used in bis research, but it obviously wasn't 
very profound; in fact it sounds like it came 
sti^ight from Uie Government. As far as Uie 
"prosperity" of Bagot is concerned, Uie fact 

is that the per capita income of the county 
is 1840. Inasmuch as this is one4ialf of the 
MonUeal figure, and less than one-half of the 
Canadian average, we figure it would take 
a Bagot worker or farmer mighty long to 
buy all those "new automobiles" you refer 
to. We didn't see too many aluminum-sided 
buildings, but we did take note of the dozens 
of abandoned shacks, which signify Uie im- 
poverishment and dying-off of agriculture in 
the county. Unemployment strikes especially 
hard in this county, as it does in all of the 
Eastem Townships. Bagot is an example of 
all of rural Québec-gone to heU, because 
it's not profitable for the bosses. 

Your article slanders boUi Uie YS/US 
and the people of Bagot. We think you 
should not only print this letter, but nniake 
a formal' retraction, in the hiterests of 
journalistic honesty. 

It would be a shame to see a student pub- 
lication descend to the level of . the com- 
mercial press. '

The ins and outs 
. of legal advice 


Contrary to what is reported hi the DaUy 
of December 5, 1968, 1 did not vehenienUy 
oppose Mr. Foster's motion on legal aid. 
Besides pointing out certain statutory pro- 
hibitions preventing law students giving le- 
gal advice, I voiced no other comment 
agahist Mr. Foster's motion at the meet- 
ins, and in fact voted hi favor of it. My opi- 
nion is that somethhig should definitely be 
done to assist students who cannot afford 
legal advice, and I have frequently voiced 

this opinion in the past. What I was, how- 
ever, vehemenUy opposed to was a sugges- . 
tion that law students collectively contrave- 
ne the Bar Act by offering their services 
to students requiring Uiem. ^

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 13th. 1968 


The death of feudalism 

In the current issue of the 
•McGill Reporter, a total of 
twenty-seven chairmen of Mc- 
Gill departments, heads .of 
McGill divisions, and Deans 
of McGill faculties express' 
themselves on the question of 
student - participation in their 
particular fiefdoms. -The con- 
cepts of student participation 
vary from "the undergraduates 
participate by attending their 
classes and, all in all, by not 
malting it more difficult than 
necessary for full-time and part- 
tiine staff to do their jobs" 
(agricultural - chemistry) on 
up, but certain words and 
phrases recur over and over 
again: informal consultation... 
constructive dialogue...staff-stu- 
dcnt discussion. 

But now the political science 
section of the Department of 
Economics and Political Science 
is the belter for having weather- 
ed ten days- of occupation, and 
uiformal consultation isn't good 
enough any more. The changes 

that are takhijg place at the de- 
partmental level involve more 
than thé admission of a few stu- 
dents into àn ah-eady functioning 
structure. They hnply a trans- 
formation of the- gentlemanly, 
almost feudal way in which de- 
partments always have been 
run and, it seemed a few short 
months ago, . always would be 

In a sense, the academic 
department is one of the most 
hierarchical structures outside 
the Roman Catholic Church. 
There are myriad distinctions 
or ranlc;-at the top are the full 
professors, senior members of . 
the profession who command 
respect because of their long 
experience; then come the asso- 
ciate professors with tenure and 
then the associate, professors 
without tenure; and so oh down 
to the graduate students, ap- 
prentices who are being in- 
structed in the lore of the 
profession and in .ways to get 


said the posters, and indeed it was. 

There were a hundred physics students at the 
meeting yesterday, and a few faculty in the 
back, listening. 

The students werè^çôffçerned about the kind of 
education they were getting. The mathematics 
they were learning was qnly^^qrginall^jrelated 
to the mathematics they fieede^^ 
major students were taking the same courses 
and neither group was satisfied with them. 

But, some of the points rai se dhad wider impli- 
caiiam 'as wèli. One honml^jKsuid&ni 
that fis program provided for a total of one 
half course outside thé physics and math de- 
partments in three years. He would end up 
kmowing a hell of a lot about physics as phy- 
sics but very little about its relation to the rest 
of the world. 

And a first-year student said that there was 
no course in the University for students who 
were just interested in obtaining a general 
knowledge of physics. Somebody pointed out 
that although in first year the number of stu- 
dents taking physics and the number taking 
chemistry were about equal, about three times 
as many students took chemistry in the upper 
years . 

The single education goal of the McGill phy- 
sics depdrMnent is the training of professional 
physicists, and there is a wide range of needs 
that are not being met. A t the first meeting of 
the Society of Physics Students, it had be c o me 
clear that this was one of the things that^f^jaiH 
have to be changed. 

The undergraduates don't even' 
count. They are potential grad- 
uate students, and they taice the 
courses that provide the work 
that finances professors and 
teaching assistants, but apart 
from that they can be safely 

However, distinctions of 
rank are far from the whole 
story. Informality ' character- 
izes not only the department's 
relations with students, but ev- 
erything else it docs as well. 
The political science section 
has not just added two students 
to its appointments committee; 
«itjhasvcreated an appointments 
'■'îôhiirinittee for the first time. 
Appointments have always been 
made by the full professors. In 
most other departments, that, or 
some variation of that, is the 
way they are still made. 

Power |n a. department de- 
pends above all on whom you 
know, on what contacts you 
have at what universities in what 
fields, on what conferences you 
attended and who else was at 
those conferences. If an appoint- 
ment is to be made, it is- usual- 
ly the person with the contacts 
who will fuid someone to fill the 

The department is a self- 
perpetuating entity. There may 
be a conscious attempt to impose 
some sort' of orientation on the 
department, or there may not. 
In any case, the people in the 
department usually end up being 
somehow compatible. 

The pressures to change this 
way of doing things have not alt 
come from students, In the po- 
litical science section in the 
last year, there was a move 
among younger and less power- 
ful faculty to extend ' decision- 
making power to a wider faculty 
base, and this led to the dis- 
cussion of questions in meetings 
of the whole section instead of 
their behig decided entirely by 
the upper echelons. But the basic 
question, the nitty-gritty - 
appointments - remained in the 
hands of a few. 

And particularly, in the hands 
of Michael Brecher. In political 
science, Brecher is the man with 
the contacts. Appointments that 

are ^'^Lfi^ji^^!^Sii^«ti^ 
tion and'bf âÛ'idëblogicâ'penua- 
slons. In his specialty. Inter- 
national relations, he has appoint- 
ed several of his own PhD stu- 
dents, current and former. This 
'Brecher empire' forms a pow- 
erful bloc acting against change 
hi .Jtae^epartment "The vf acuity 
commission 'that negotiated with 
the PSA durhig the strike included 
Paul Noble and Mrs. Janice 
Stem, both students under 
Brecher as well as members of 
faculty. A third conmiissioner 
was Brecher hhnself. 

The attitudes of this group 
came out clearly hi the coune 
of the conflict. During the nego- 
tiations, Brecher made quite 
clear what he thought of stu- 
dents: they were unequal to fa- 
culty hi interest, hi right and hi 
competence to choose the people 
who would teach hi the depart- 

ment Noble, meanwhile, was the 
only faculty jnember who made 
any real attempt to break the 
strike. And before the occupa- 
tion another member of the group, 
Blema Stehiberg, tried to destroy 
PSA support by speakhig against 
the PSA in her dasses. 

The success of the students con-, 
sisted in playbig off the Brecher 
empire against the. department 
'moderates',' led by Chairman 
J. R. Mallory and Saul Frankel. 
At "the beginning of the negotia- 
tions, Brecher appeared fhmly 
in control, but his position erod- 
ed quickly. By the last day even 
Janice Stein no longer supported 
him. Finally, Brecher hunself 
cracked. ... 

Just how the presence of stu- 
dents on departmental commit- 
tees, and particularly the appoint- 
ments committee, will affect the 
existence of phenomena like the 
Brecher emphe remains to be 
seen. The implications of even 
the minority representation at- 
tained are clear. No longer will 
appointments be made by a few 
imen behind closed doors. The 
next thne Michael Brecher wants 
to brmg ui an International rela- 
tions specialist, there will be two 
students, not to mention assorted 
associate and assistant profess- 
ors, with whom he will have to 
argue the merits of the appoint- 
ment. And general questions of 
orientation will be discussed hi 
public. • Feudalism is bebig 
destroyed and liberal democracy 
is commg in. 

But there's a catch. 

The PSA victory was the re- 
sult of a blatant test of strength 
on the'part of students and facul- 
ty. The resolution of issues had 
absolutely nothing to do with it - 
and for this reason it is only 
a matter'of thne, before the con- 
flict between them flares up 
again. The faculty is still con- 
vmced, for the most part, that 
students have absolutely no part 
to play hi the selection of staff. 
Until it becomes clear to them 
that students, who are partici- 
pants to an equal extent hi the 
productive-consumptive process 
we call education, are equally en- 
titled to determbie the nature of 
the education that is dhected at 
them, this conflict will be just 
below the surface hi any activity 
that involves student-faculty hi- 

Because , they still regard the 
student presence on the govern- 
ing bodies of the department as 
iUegiUmate, the faculty will 
try to mhibnbe the effect' that 
students can have. There will be 
secret faculty meetuigs, apart 
from the regular meetmgs of the 
section, to determhie how best 
to neutralize the deleterious stu- 
dent presence. A special effort 
will have to be made, of course, 
to ensure that aberrant nigger- 
loving faculty are kept off com- 
mittees where the chance exists 
tliat they might combhie arith- 
metically with student repre- 
sentatives to prevail over the 
forces of sanity. 

The PSA was able to force the 
faculty to back down because the 
divisions that exist hi the faculty 

were more pernicious than those 
that existed among the students. 
This is something that should 
be remembered by those who 
still conceive departments to be 
monolithic hi terms of the oppo- 
sition they will offer to the stu- 
dent thrust for democratization. 

The PSA's members were able 
to suborduiate theh ideological 
differences to the need to con- 
front a faculty that refused ra- 
tional debate of the substantive 
issues involved hi the dispute. 

This is somethhig that should 
be remembered by faculties that 
arc still convmced it is possible 
to crush student actions hi the 
departments by isolating a far- 
left, ultra-radical, quasi-insane 
elite from the majority of nor- 
mal, well-behaved students. The 
lesson is that the desire to exert 
some effective control over the 
factors that have, in the past, 
produced Irrelevant or ineffective 
patterns of knowledge assimila- 
tion does not spring from some 
single unfortunate ideological 

It would also appear that those 
who are convinced that these 
departmental phenomena are con- 
fmcd to the moral-fibre-rotted 
humanities and social sciences 
are hi for a dose of chastise- 
ment. It seems, specifically, 
that these perversions have 
spread to the physics and gene- 
tics departments. 

The traditional arguments have 
been that students in the sciences

lies with the males I've encounlered. When 
challenged, they are revealed as not being 
as virile as they fancy themselves. When 
their self bn't supported but has to stand

The good old traditional position for sex-

perfect symbol for the whole tradition of 
male-female relations. But there are other 
ways to do it tliat work just as well. They 
may seem perverted to some people, but 
they can be just as much fun.

I would like to comment on the article 
in "the Review" of December 6 by Martine 

Miss, Eloy has stated in a dear manner 
many of the conclusions I myself have come 
to after living in this "man's world'j!>forj25 
years. In a very real way, the continued 
existence of one half of the human popula- 
tion in a sut)ordinate role taints all human 
thought. 'Itie subtle acceptance of woman as 
a second-class citizen is a real stepping 
stone on the road, to other, more blatant 
forms of discrimination. , ' 

The most valid point Miss Eloy makes. 
I feel, is that, because women no longer . 
wirh to accept the burden of "niaterial exis- 
tence" ('.vorrying atraut rent bills, planning 
good suppers for under 50 cents a serving, 
etc.) this doesn't mean that they wish to 
assume a masculine role as it is presently 
defined. In no wiay do I, or any woman I 
know, oivy any man his role hi this society. 
Rather it is a challenge to all human beings, 
male, female, black, white. Christian, 
Jewish, and yes, even Marxist, to construct 
a society in which all human beings will be 
free to be conscious, creative, fulfllled in-

Anato my of a cop - Part One 

a cop to a pig 

Constable #839 sits at a desk in IMontreal police sta- 
tion number one. He does paper work, has never been on 
a beat, never made any arrests. He decided to become a 
cop two years ago, fatigued at the thought of any more 
schooling. He spent one year at police academy learning 
how to fill out forms and the police regulations. He can't 
remember what else was taught - after all, that was a year 
ago. . ' 

Some days are spent at the municipal court giving direc- 
tions to visitors. At a flat topped table he sits, hands folded, 
staring at the elevator doors. He has memorized the build- 
ing; directions are given in a split second, except to the 
girl who asks where the police station is: "What do you 
want to go there for?" 

Working at the station hasn't changed his life. He says 
that he has the same friends. When out of uniform he claims 
to be the same kind of man, that hé doesn't react to situa- 
tions any differently. He has never had any run-ins or un- 
pleasant scenes with any kind of people. "No," he says, 
"there are no groups I can think of" who are hostile to 
the police, not even students. . 

Hé can't formulate an idea of what role a cop plays in 
society. "He protects people; enforces laws," he says as 
he scratches his head. As to what a cop ought to be, his 
reply is a perusive gaze at the elevator doors. 

The image of the cop is reflected accurately by radio 
and television, he admits. But the couts limit law enforce- 

^ Protests "don't d6lh(rg<^d|jg^e head is again massag- 
l^at the question of jwHethèr or not demonstrations are a 
?3wriiberty. He has lib answer. And he can't think of any 

particular methods that a cop should use to handle a riot. 

A blank stare answers, his^cohcept of an ideal society; 
he just hasn't thought abolit It.' Politically he is neither 
pro or anti any system. He's just a cop who does what he 
is told. But there will always be cops because people will 
always "get out of hand". 

. With no beliefs he would personnally like to enforce, no 
model he strives to be, no immediate plans of thoughts 
about improving society or belief that this system needs 
consideration, or even any patriotic passion to defend what 
already exists, constable 839 will become an effective cop. 
a potential pig. He's a nice guy caught in an authoritarian 
system which allows him to make certain decisions, such 
as breaking up street fights, and gives him power throu^ 
police codes. He says that there is a clause stating that a 
cop must use "personal judgment" for such situations. 
But beyond similar small incidents, the bureaucratic chain 
of authority takes over. He becomes responsible to ser- 
geants, lieutenants, a chief, the police tribunal and the 
courts - all in the interests of prjaJtecting the people. 

Watching elevators is leisurely and takes no thinking. 
He is more secure here than on a beat because he usually 
has to make no decisions at all. No one hurts him as long 
as he gets his paycheck; he is defending only his right to 
earn a living. He has no apparent Interests beyond his own- 

He may talk to his buddies and héai- of.thc>r horror at 
being railed a pig; or how some punk on a street comer 
resisted the cop's order to move on; or that too many kids 
were playing baseball in the streets. But their talk will 
have no meaning until he gets on a beat and their verbal 
complaints become personalized. Moral outrage will set in 
If he is pushed around too much. He has not formerly 
thought about what or whom he Is defending; he has just 
done his job. But if he Is attacked, he will be transformed 
into an authoritarian figure, expand the "personal judg- 
ment" code, and use Ris position to back up personal 
grieyaiice^He doesn't like hippies. Your hair Is too long, 
therefore you are a hippie. You are picked up on vagrancy 

A cop has to become thoroughly indoctrinated in his 
work to be effective. If he is a malleable man, such as 
constable 839, there is much room for influence. He's 
with a group of men who, hardenedl by criminality, rule by 
force without perspective foTjanjr^ other methods. He will 
accept thehr way of life because be knows no other. For ex- 
ample, when the constable siaid that people will always "get 
out of hand", he indicated he has taken his own fhst step 
toward becoming an establishment policeman. He has assu- 

med the status quo as inevitable, without yet realizing it. 
Since police tactics are to keep peace within the social 
structure, they are ^an especially inviolable part of it To 
try to activate social change is to revolt Law and order ra- 
rely exist during revolution. The cop is there to preserve 
law and order, thus he is the natural enemy of social change. 

EXPERIENCE TEACHES: cops and citizens 
mingle, enriching understanding of each other. 

f For the moment, constable 839 is defending no one. He 
will not be until he is placed on a beat and has to interact 
with the people he claims to be helping now. Now, he Is Just 
supporting an organization which he understands very little. 
Shice a citizen rarely goes to his. station, Jiis typical cop is 
the one on the street. But this cop as become an entirely' 
different kind of man. The street life must be considered 
before any biterpretation of what a cop is' and how he be- 
comes this way can be begun. 

Taylor Buckner, a sociologist at SGWU was a policeman 
with the Oakland, California department for a year and a 
half. His experiences illustrate the socializatipn processes 
at work. He knows how a cop becomes the pig. 

- To initiaté'a young cop, he may be given an assignment 
to haul in a prostitute. He will be told where to go. who to 
get, but not what to expect. When he gains entrance as a 

INITIATION: a novice law enforcement officer 
must gain practical experience by picking up a 

prospective client and she intimates her trade, he will 
identify himself as a cop. Whereupon the unsuspecting cop 
will be attacked by this hysterical .female clawing. and 
biting. He learns fast. Frequently the novice is told to stay 
with a specific senior cop so tliat he may pick up the special- 
ized tricks left out of formal training. 

— ^ 

He also has to learn about the use of his gun. Buckner 
said that after he received his gun he dreamt for months 
about various situations in which he might be called upon 
to draw it. In Oakland, when a cop removes his gun from 
his holster, he must shoot to stop. At what point a cop 
should kill was the crux of the anxiety affectuig Buckner. 
'With experience a cop leamS; automatically when to pull 
the gun; the gun is drawn wluiouf Uiinking of the conse- 
quences. ■ ^ 

Buckner noticed that his linguistic structure changed. 
He assumed a dogmatic authoritarian ak. Suspicion often 
resulted because of a subtle evasion which he would not 
have noticed before he got on the beat. Friction between 
himself and friends was inevitable because of his new' ex- 
terior. His role became a twenty-four hour obsession; he 
was always defender of the people, protector of .property, 
saviour of law and order. 

« • 

An experienced cop develops a sense for trouble. An 
open window of a parked car when it is raining might in- 
dicate that the car was stolen. Certain people just look 
suspicious ; they wear their guilt. 

The sight of. a cop also causes paranoia in innocent 
people;, people just feel suspected whether they have done 
anything or not 

A geographic sense of crime , is learned. Cops know 
what' district breeds crime, what store is a front for a 
bookies jobt, what hotel is a whorehouse. A gettho, although 
posing a threat as a particularly hostile area for a cop, 
has only small, petty crimes. The wealthier districts at- 
tract more ^interest tiecausc the crunes cost more to the 
victims. .Th^J^ is more saUsfactory because there is 
moretosave; Z^"^ - - [ ■ 

These reflexes become innate. A cop cannot be suspi- 
cious for ten hours a day and unsuspecting the other four- 
teen. Nor can any attitudes of authoritarianism be discard- 
ed. Frustrations built up during the day can no more be 
forgotten than those of the Businessman returning from the 
office. A policeman has a. moral code Inculcated into his 
habits. He cannot deviate from the law. A lay citizen 
feels free to release himself in any expedient manner. 
Restrictions are felt by a cop which malce him righteous 
because others do whatever they please. 

An outlet must be formed. A cop can do this creatively. 
In Oakland some cops got together and rented a car for a 
day. They placed In the back seat, a large gift-wrapped

Games Policemen Play 

The anatomy of a cop docs not stop with a discussion 
of his motivations and value systems. There is the ex- 
ternal part of his anatomy which might best be descrilied 
as the roles he adopts in society or, in the current termi- 
nology, the games he plays. He plays some of these games 
out of preference, others because society forces him to, 
and still others, by far the most dangerous, because they 
are inherent in the type of organization for which he worI<s. 
These games are perhaps the most important part.'of his 
anatomy because this is the only part most of us ever see. 

There is one overriding game which the public demands 
that its cops play. This Is the archetypal game' of Daddy, 
Daddy is drawn primarily from the Victorian ideal of the 
father figure - stem but fair, just, aloof and not at all in- 
dulgent toward his children. Daddy is there to protect us 
from the nastiness of the world and to guide our foot- 
steps up the path of righteousness.'That is, he is there to 
make sure we obey the law. 

The one area where we are most lilcely to meet Daddy 
is in the sphere of traffic violations. If you are speeding 
and are caught, you should not feel that the cop swoop- 
ing down on you is an avenging figure of doom. It would 
be more to the point to visualize yourself as a child 
caught in the act of rifling a radar-trapped vcookie jar. 
You tried to get away with a no-no and Daddy stopped you. 
Like a good father, the cop is expected to act from the 
motivation of pure justice which he administers for your 
own good. 

For this reason, he will give you the ticket firmly but 
without malice. If this is your first offense and you have 
's(mie|pliausible . excuse ot^^ weré too drunk to 

know what you were doing, he might exercise the parental 
prerogative of mercy and only give you a warning. Daddy' 
must reward as well as pun^h, society demands that its 
cops be somewhat hiclined to forgive and forget. 

This game of Daddy, while generaley practiced every- 
where in North America, is particularly viable in Quebec. 
Here we have a society traditionally based on the heirar- 
chy of thé Gturch which sees its leaders, from the Pope ' 
down to the most minor pastors, as "fathers". They are 
authoritarian figures removed from intimate personal in- 
volvement with their flock but responsible for them. And 
the cops are theh: counterpart iii lay society. Because of 
this tradition, cops here are also interested in moral 
training. The morality squad protects us from books and 
movies of "dubious" character just as our parents 
(and our priests) tried to. While still fairly strong here, 
this function of Daddy is dying out in other cities. 

Although Daddy is the chief game played by copsJt^jj 
society's behest, it has many variations. Among the more^ 
biteresting is Boy Scout. Not surprisingly,, the. game con- 
sists mainly of bebig helpful, braîra^courteous, kind,'^ 
cleanly, etc. The cop should set an example. His uniform 
must always be neat and he should never be surly. These 
are rules of the Montreal department. And, although he 
is Daddy, he should not be unapproachable. He must render 
help cheerfully when asked to do so. 

This game is crucial for society. The current theory 
is that fathers should not only^be jws pected but, like any 
good scout master, should alMfS^ffo be pals with theh- 
kids. Likewise, a completely authoritarian police estab- 
lishment without certain strains of appropriate friendliness 
would not be tolerated.

young enough to have fun, to laiigh and to have hangiipsi 
This image is much more sympathetic than Daddy, espe- 
cially to the young, and hence this game Is plàyed most 
frequently by cops who must deal with youth. They can 
get farther with it than with the straight role of Daddy

.Older Brother- leads directly into a. highly'^s^Iwled' i- 
game called Family Maii! Basicîuly, this is a public relations ' 
game played by police departments to elicit commu- 
nity tolerance. They constantly stress that cops are not 
inhuman automatons - they have personal lives complete 
with wives and children. This image is crucial if the pub- 
lic is to accept the bnmense power given to police. Cops 
must be human and capable of normal human feelinp and 
functions. Put. another way, police biggies want you to 
realize that cops fuck. They would prefer that you not 
think of it in precisely these terms (after all, the cop must 
also play Boy Scout), but this is basically what Family 
Man is aU about If the game is played adroitly enough, you 
will learn to trust the cop with authority and perhaps give 

There are two last games hi this syndrome, both close- 
ly allied. These two cause most oLthe danger inherent in 
the way in which western society makes its cops behave. - 

.The major game of these should accurately be called 
Man Of The House. This is the one where Daddy reverts

Gosely allied with Boy Scout is Older Brother. Thb 
watered-down version of Daddy can be seen any week-day 
on programs such as "Adam 12" or the m-vvSiiuV,*,; de- 
funct "Car 54 Where Are You". In this game, Daùùy be- 
comes even more approachable and takes the form of an 
to his primal role of defender of the safety and/or honor 
of his family. The technique used hi playhig is niore often 
than not some variety of Oops and Robbos, except that 
in this case the guns are real. (This distinction becomes 
crucial if you happen to be the object of the game). 

The .. technical name cops use for this game is "crime

The basic trahiing :t)f , is directed towards this 
one game. The basicjr&Ieitbôok is the law. If a law is 
broken, the cop laundies hito Man Of The House and takes 
out after the robbers. To a cop, it is as'simplé as that. 
Which is unfortunate, since it leaves him completely un- 
prepared to play the last game in this series, Patsy. 

Patsy is a political game. The directing force is general- 
ly the mayor and his council. It is played when the poli- 
Ucos decide that it is politically hnportant to cool it with 
regard to certahi groups. The police are histructed to look

the other way and not to interfere, even if, according to 
law. crimes are taking place. This occurred during the 
first Chicago riots where cops, at the beginning, were told 
not to arrest looters. It was played again in Montreal 
; during the recent liquor strike when illegal importation of 
booze was generally condoned. 

Of course, the patsy in Patsy is the cop. He must 
stand by and watch what he has been trahied to view as 
criminal offenses go unpunished. He has not been given the 
political socialization to knoW:^hy,^ and he is made very 
up-tight about the hihereht contradictions.' llié schizophre- 
nia involved can sometimes break out in violence when, 
as in the case of the riots at the Democratic Convention,' 
the poUticos decide it is time for the cops to stop playing 
Patsy and switch to playing Man Of The House. In that 
particular case the cops were informed that no Umiting 
rules were set on the game. Theh: frustration, over social 
movements which they could not understand broke out in 
the form of a cop riot. They played Man of the House' 
with everyone, including the press, when they really should 
have been playing Boy Scout or, at the very least. Older 

In addition to those games which society forces on pol- 
ice (or, as in, the. case of Patsy, which society plays on 
poUce^i^hergji^^ few which cops adopt of thehr own . 
voUti^Uti^^reiireally only supplementary games and 
need.^H^H^th at length. 

The prototype game,' from which all other games of this 
. nature are drawn, is Cowboy. The basic rules consist 
of sauntering down the street, hobter and gun in full view, 
loddng like you're on your way to the OK Corral show- 
down on Peel Street Like Family Man, this is basically an 
hnage game and derives from wish fullfillment< gotten 
from viewhig old Roy Rogers and Gene Autry fUms in 
the cop's youth. 

This game can, of course, be played hi - pabôlvcàrs 
as well. The car shnply replaced the holster anc) gun and,, 
moseys down the street By itself, this game is hannless 
and shnply gives the cop a certahi status and SKurity, like 
the cowboy heros of his yoiith enjoyed hi the (dd TV west 
However, if carried too far it can become rilghtly more 

Turn pigt. 

The crux of cop game playing lies in those games which are 
Ktireht in the very nature of the police mentality. These are the 
obscene games which turn cop into pig. 

The pig secure on his Hog - a classic example 
of the correct posture for playing Cowboy. 

' The cop who has pracS^l^o^^^OT many years can 
easily be tempted into playing Marine Corps Commando. 
This is a vicious game where the cop stonns a crowd the- 
Wiiy John Wayne stormed the Isle of Coiregidor. Montreal . 
cops are particularly noted for their avid participation hi 
this role game which they refer to as "crowd control". 
Cowboy can also le^jioiftb^^ the 
uniform and accbtiWmeiiBTof^ïfiisfcSp^ the 
badge) become powerful charms which lead hbn to iKlieve 
he can practice ahnost' anythhig, hicludbig harrassment, 
illegal search and seizure and therapeutic beatings, without 
fear of censure. This is also a popular Montreal game and 
is even behig practiced, at the moment, withhi the Roddicic 

The point about all of 'these games is that they concern 
the image the cop has of himself. They are the acting 
out of fantasies which malce the cop important to himself 
and add to his sense of authority. They are all variations 
of the basic Cowboy'and-are not particularly upsilU^Un- 
less carried to the extreme of Mariner Corps Cbinmando 
or the more virulent forms of Fetish.- ' . 

. Of coursé, the crux of cop game playing lies neither in 
the games i^iidi society wants him to play nor hi the games 
wfaidi be. personally wants to pIiQr; it. lies hirtbe^ gaines 
wfaidi be 'mnst play shnply'because they are m'inhera

There are basically only two such games but they have 
^m^JfS^tioaa to oufange ahnost any morality. The first 
'fhuf'orlUie dub is a little genii known as Counter-revolution. 
This game is a direct extension of the polire départment's 
view of social movement 

The cop is tridned, first and foremost, to preserve 
order. AccrâxUng to Professor Goldberg and others v^o 
have studied police motivation, this is the cop's prime rai- 
son d'être. Of course, preserving order means preserving 
the status quo. Hence, any threat to the status quo is cons^ 
dered a threat to order v^ch the cop is dedicated to pre- 
serve at all costs. Sbice any meanhigful social movement 
seda,|^niaiy changes hi the status quo, as well as hi so- 
detyTUs^i^icfa a movement is seen Iqr the cop as threaten- 
ing.' He has not been given any sophisticated political so- 
cÛixaâoh and therefore cannot understand the issues hi- 
voived nor the motivati on on the_part of the movement's 
adherents. He sees simplistically. Social movement -dis- 
order - threat to sodefy • mvng. Although he might aclmow- 
ledgejheir^existence, he does not feel the effect of civil 
righB%7&teedams. A dedication to the brute concept of 
nder doei not hidude such thhigs. In this vicious chrle, 
aU social change becomes the equivalent of rebellion or 

This pohit is best brought out by the dbector of the - 
Montreal police, Jean-Paul Gilbert. In a speëch given to the

be stated, "Hbtory shows that all the world revolutions 
have been preceeded by persistent riothig." He then brou^t 
up the spectre of the Paris revolution last sprhig and Unked 
all this hidelibly wi^ the demonstrations which have occur- 
ed in Montreal. Although these demonstrations were for 
cfvilji^ts and sodal justice, the director's thought was 
clear. All demonstrations tend to lead to riots which hi 
turn become revohitlons. Hence, demcostratlons, as well 
as all democratk: agitation for reform, should be discourag- 
ed if>not jmt down outright They are a threat to order and 
the 80(^ system. ■ ^ 

TÙs preoccupation with order is the basic totalitarian 
ideal. When order, and, it follows, the present social sys- 
tem, are of prime concern, democracy and bdividual free- 
dom eventually wither. And this ideal of order and the sys- 
tem is the corp of western police establishments. 

With this hi inhid, the rules of 'Counter-revolution are 
easy to describe. They consist shnply hi makhig it as dif-

There are several variations of this game. Marine 
Corps Commando is an hitegral part of it This occun 
when protests or movements become too large for police 
comfort, both ph](sical and. mental They then declare the 
movement a riot and storm the beaches ui the name of so- 
cial order. Another aspect b Occupyhig Army. This game 
is played mahily hi ethnic ghettos where, not surprishigly, 
the demand for change is heaviest. The cops mahitain a 
disproportionately large'force there, much Uke an army of 
occupation, and attempt to "keep the Ud on". In general, the 
rules of this variation are to apply ènough concerted pres- 
sure (not thé least of irtiich is terror) to "keep the nigger 
hi his place". The greai riots hi American cities can be • 
seen as a direct result of this particular pme. 

The thir(l fanportant aspect of Counter-revolution is the 
game of Big BrottiSnJETbis is a foim of Occupyhig Army 
which is practiced hi society at large. It consists mainly 
of keephig large dossiers on leaders of social movements 
and subjecting them to constant surveillance and harrass- , 
ment If the game is played adroitly enough, the cops can 
manage to take the leados out of circulation and bltmt thehr 
movement .This game has, been played well against Blade, 
Panther qiokesmen hi Oakland where the cops have been 
able to arrest several of the leaders, particularly Eldridge 
Cleaver and Bobby Scale, on trumped-up charges. For bonus . 

pohits, they have been able to kill others outright and hound 
still others underground. 

Of course the famous subgame of Pig can be played hi 
conjunction with any of the above. Basiâlly, Pig is shnply 
a name given to the hitensity with which a particular game 
is played. For histance, a cop who plays Occupyhig Army 
by concentrathig mabily on physical hitimidation, such as 
beathigs, or vibo has a particularly notable record of shoot- 
big suspects rather than gohig through the bother of bring- 
faig them hi, is playhig Pig Occupyhig Army. Similarly, the 
cop who concenta'ates his blows hi the area of the grohi 
during "riots" Is playmg Pig Marine Corps Commando. 
This more hitense form of game playhig-is particuhrly 
suited to the ex-soldiers on the force. 

The other nu^or game which is an hitegral part of any 
police organization'^b the most dangerous of all. It is the 
game of Murder. The rules are absurdly shnple - the only 
thhig a cop must do is kill another human behig. As for 
restrictions on the game, the cop must a) believe hhnself 
to be hi danger or b) believe that the su^t b attempthig 
to flee. He does not have to know, nierdy believe. Hence, 
the only restriction b that he use hb judgement. If he b of 
the opinion'that Murder b requhed, he may play the game 
andshoot ' 

Very little must be said concerning the danger of giv- 
hig one group hi society the right to niurder:at thehr. db- 
cretlon. And what thb power does to the mentality of the 
cop b hicalculable. Sbice the result of thb game b death, 
it b the one game which becomes most intolerable if play- 
ed hidiscrhnhiatdy. lb variation, Maim, Is therefore mudi 
more favored hi police drcles because the end b not so 
fhiaL Mayor Daley has recently taken the fhst steps to- 
wards legithnatizing both of these games hito two of the 
great North American pasthnes. Other leaders can now be 
expected to follow suit and, as social pressure increases, 
these two sports may well become the dcmhiant features of 
a cop's basic anatomy. 

So there you have it - the games policemen play. The 
upshot of most of them, of course, b that you get screwed 
- or. shot Nor do the cops themsdves fare inuch better. 
With so many conflicthig^ttei^divbions 
between them so ambiguous, role confusion bMomei a daily 
menace. If a cop makes a mistake and plays straight Daddy 
when he should be playing Boy Scout the resulb are not too 
devastathig. But if, while engrossed hi the role game Cow- 
boy, he gets hnpetuous aijd plays Murder bistead of straight 
Man Of The House, the result for hhn b could be serious. 
It.b definitdy serious for the person hè b playhig with. 

The reality b that çops should not be playhig games at

play the predomhiant role of Daddy and then complicates it 


the Review 5 

An experiment 
in education 

A M cGill math lecturer tells what happened 
when he decided to do away with lectures 

In the fall of 1903 I d^ded to teach my two elementary 
calculus^dassesjbyt^using a workshop rather than lectures 
uTIIt^eans^ffdirwI^g thé att the students. I 

chose my calculus daues^which provided me with Ofty- 
one s(udents to experiment on, plus a large control group' 
of 331 students who would receive the usual lecturing from 
other members of the department, who would take the same 
final exam as my students, and who had been selected on 
the same random basis. I had hopes of demonstrating that 
although lectures might be useful, they were by no means 
a necessity in the handling of a mathematics class, and I 
wished to set up a pilot project for methods which would 
more directly address a student's problems than lecturing 
evercould by itself.: 

Learning by test 

The basic method used'was quite simple, but I must 
admit that It evolved gradually during a period of a month, 
and this involved some Initial confusions for the students. I 
made up a series of sixty-four problem . sheets which 
covered all the material of the coune. The first of these 
was designated to be done in the classroom and only in the 
clasnroom, but this proved to be inadequate and later I 
introduced tak&home problem sheets. Elach test, as I 
called them, was mimeographed so that there were enough 
copies for the enUre class, and each was placed in its own 
manila envelope. 

Now suppose MlsTSniib'^v^'râdy for test'^ T^^ 
She wait up to the front ofthe room and took it out of its en- 
velope and went to her seat or took it home, consulted her 
textbook for theory, worked with other students, or consult- 
ed me if she reached ^n impasse, and worked in this fashion 
until she completed the test. No attempt was made to dis- 
courage cl^Uogryet tbm was little of it. I^^^^^^^^iiit)*^ 

Class periods thus'MUld be q^^ lively; wit^tudents^ 
walking about and chatting, although generally they remain- 
ed at their seats working hard. Almost no one ever slept in 
class, as often happens in a lecture room, except for one 
student, who led an active night life and was convinced^ti 
he was unable to work in a classroom. But even h^coQd'be 
found working from tiniet falMm e kO c ^ ^ to 
break up a hockey pool or^ffiscttssioiTor tiiocHemËtry, but 

When Miss Smith finished test TH-10 she returned the 
test sheet to its envelope and placed her work sheet in an- 
other manila envelope, which was later picked up by a cor- 
rector. She then started on another test. It is to be noted 
that she worked at her own pace, that there was noi attempt 
at all to compel the students to work on the same, test at 
the same time. In fact, very soon some students were 
"months" ahead of others. 

The correcting was handled in the following fashion. I 
provided a sheet giving htstructions on bow to correct tests 
and an answer sheet in each "uncorrected test" envelope. 
Thus, when I had assigned Mr^WUU^ns^ to. ha^^ 
he familiarized himself withVthë'^çbirëctron^procédures, 
studied the test and the answer sheet, and then corrected 
Miss Smith's paper and the others as they came in over a 
period of a month or so. Only after everyone had com- 
pleted the test was it withdrawn and Mr. Williams relieved 
of his task. He was encouraged to prod people to get the 

Some of the tests I corrected myself because it was 
convenient or because I was too la^ to make up an answer 

The corrector was encouraged to take the test to the 
^studentand discuss his mistakes with him; In any event, all 
tests came back to me -after they had lieen marked -via 
'an oivelope labeled "For Student Correctors Only." Later, 
in my office, I checked over the woiic of the corrector rapid- 
ly, making sure I discussed with him any misconceptions he 
had about what he was doing. 1 made a note of these on pa- 
per so that I would not forget to mention them the next pe-

It was absolutely essential that the corrections were 
made regularly vdthin two to four days or eke serious dis- 
turbances of the students' study habits took place. I had 
two or three students who persisted in being absent when 
their turns came to be correctors, and I had to do much of 
their correcting myself to keep the work flowing. The next 
time I use this method I will assign alternate correctors to 
each test in case the first corrector is absent, and I will

Weak students were given the easiest tests to correct,' 
and they served quite well. 

While I was checking over the papers, I made up redo 
tests. Each student was requl redito.wdp. e very problem he 

had done wrong. In thè'hi6riiing||M||^et my students, I 
would distiibufagithé.redos. Suppose Mlss^Jones.had at the 
top of her piper "Redo 1, 2, 5." When lïrââieid her in the 
morning, I would give her the paper, and stie would likely as 
not groan, and then we would discuss her mistakes and any 
background material that she seemed to lack or any pro- 
blem with which she was concerned. I might- tease her 
about thinking that sin (ax) was equal to a (sin x), which 
was something she never could getquitestraigbt. v. , . 

ThelfidM^diKctol ^ituâdii's^ttaition to his errors 
and asked him to do something about it. If what he did about 
it was wrong he got another redo. Thus the emphasis was 
on competence rather than on pace and amount of material 
scanned -as is the case when lecturing alone is employ- 

Tlirough the use..of .tUs.^em^^^became highly ob- 
'vious why our mathématla stuiiâits*aTé generally incom- 
petent. I frequently observed that prior math courses had 
required such poor duplication by a student that they had 
actually taught him errors and allowed him to consolidate 
various error7making techniques. When 50% is a passing 
fpérformance, it seems that a student can actually learn 
nonmathematics and still t>e promoted from class to dass. 

The checksheet 

When the student had completed a test or a redo per- 
fectly it was awarded a pass, whereupon I took it out of dr- 
culation and marked that test off hi red on my checksheet.

From the at)ove sample we can see that Mr. Bingham 
is dohig very well and doesn't need any more than the usual 
procedure of pointing out to him every mistake he makes. 
Mr. Brown is coming along fine. The blank for test 15 prob- 
ably means that he has a redo on 15 hi the works. Mr. Char- 
les is probably in need of a little extra help, and with the 
above indication, I would sit down with him and we would 
' talk about vhat was holding him up. 

This type of dLsru^iion with a student had a tendency to 
range over a very wide variety of subjects from wars with 
parents and lost ^rl friends to the seeming futility of stu- 
dent life, the kind of study habits or attitudes that were 
causing the slump, and often areas of math not included in 
the course but which were causing a snag because they had 
been learned wrong, or not learned at all. or forgotten.

Whenever he did work he closed the gap between himself 

and the other students easily and with good retention. All 
I had to do was keep an eye on where he was and deflate Urn 
evay'>ohcé in a while and make a big issiie ôutfôf'Hîs 
mistakes to keep his overconQdence from destroying him. 

The students were allowed to look at the checksheet to 
see where they were and where they were in relation to the 
others. Noticing that one was represented by a long white 
streak through a fidd of red was one of the automatic goads' 
built into the course. - 

The checksheet as a communication device 

The checksheet was my most direct and important 
communication line wiUi my students. It hdped me count- 
less times to spot troubles as they were developing and to 
handle them before they grew hito disasters. I remember 
at the be^nning of the year how critically useful the dieck- 
sheet was. This was an especially problem-filled time as 
I was still making many mistakes in organizing the course. 
Many students had objections to and fears about such a ra- 
dical hmovation as learning math without lectures and had 
not the least bit of confidence in my ability to iron out the 

Many people arc essentially covert when they have dis- 
agreements and complaints and cannot discuss them with 
you frankly, assumbig somehow, that you are pigheaded 
and won't see thdr point of view and wouldn't change even 
if you did. This meek attitude is epidemic among our stu- 
dent population, and my classes were no exception. Such an 
attitude seems to arise mainly because of a lack of self- 
confidence, or ability, in communicathig disagreements with 
the hitention and the willingness to create change in the 
person who is the source of the disagreement. 

The students who did^not have this ability to communic- 
ate their^meJIlMwever, stiU had their pro- 
blem and liad to handle it to survive and, of course, it didn't 
get handled ëaslly'~slricë'I,'wfao was most dfarecUy concern- 
ed, had no idea what the disagreements were, althou^ I 
was grossly aware that they existed. 

A typical handling of such a disagreement situaUon 
reasons that two-way communication is impossible. The 
student cannot tell me what is to him wrong and transfers 
iaiwn;dbUly>,to^ine^~for^^ of afËdn by assundng 

that'1'îirùhirining Wiistoi.^w^ to change, unwilling 
to treat his communication as worthwhile, unwilling to ac- 
cept his problems as real. In other words he makes him- 
self feel that even if he could say what was bothering hhn, 
communication is impossible because I wouldn't listen. 
Therefore, since I won't listen to his needs, .1 can't com- 
municate to him what lieneed^d^Jon&;wa^ 
atibii from rne to the'sfiTdeiftwtb? 
and so forth, is useless and must be broken. This is a with- 
drawal reaction, and shice we can define fear In terms 
of withdrawal, its characteristic emotion is fear. Fear is 
the emotion that tells us communication is bad. Such atti- 
tudes are, of course, generated by our sodety, which all 
the way from TV to school enforces one-way communic- 
ation and consistently invalidâtes thé student's own com- 
munication attempts. 

Withdrawal in this particular case meant going to Dr. 
Herschom, who was in charge of all the sections, and re- 
questing a transfer to a section where people did normal 
things like sit and listen to lectures. Dr. Hershchom had 
his hands full for a few weeks handling the disagreements 
with my experiment, disagreements which the studoits 
adamantly refused to talk to me about. 

The checksheet system finally allowed .me to set up 
sane communication lines with the studoits^ahd the db- 
agreements were thus handled in a way whicli bypassed 
Dr. Herschom's office. It turned out that the only students 
who had complaints were the ones who couldn't progress 
through the tests. As the course got underway it became 
more and more obvious after a glance at the checksheet 
who these students were, and I was able to go to them very

The pot . 

Another.device I used to pick up complaints and troubles 
and'goiieially handle things I was too busy to notice vras an 
oivelope called the Pot, which served as a safety valve. On 
the outside of it I had written: "This envelope is to recdve 
all of the following material and nàust hidude your name and 
the date. Deposit: (1) Questions about calculus which I seem 
too busy to handle on the spot. Include text section number il

with the students while I handed out redos, I obtained all the 
hiformation I needed to keep the coune on an even keel, 
and the students developed the feeling that they could come 
tome with their problems. • „ ; ; . , 

It is important hi dohig this sort of thing not to use'the 
"non-directive" therapy approach, fashionable at the mo- 
ment, to solve problems that the students might have. Pro- 
blems do not get solved by havhig the student talk them out, 
thqr get solved with discussion plus effective effort. Many 
student complahits turned out to be squarely based on de- 
fects built hito the origbial a^ntems. Once I understood, via 
conununication, how these defects were causing troubles 
iCHT^certain students I was often able to modify the system 
'"oâccbnunodatétheh: needs. ' 

One of the remarkable things about our present educ- 
ational structure is that it doesn't at all take hito account 
student goals. As anybody familiar with learning theory 
knows, repetition of material has little effect on leaning in 
the absence of a g«»l.*^9S5fr

W^l^Vkt eveiyonVelselr McGill, accepted my studoits 
with the motives that they had as they were delivered to 
me at the registration table. I bad no well thou^t out, well 
worked out plan for relating their classwork to their goals. 
In fact, the only work I did with goals was on a haphazard 
basis. When I noticed a student on my checksheet who was 
lagKing, I felt around for what was troubUng him and what 
grals be bad that I could work with. 

: A boy was depressed and not working and was way 
bëdnd the others. I knew he liked girisil Udded him that 
the best abandon unsuccessful men. He finished with 
a first cla ss. One boy started to fall so far behind that his 
very real goal, to master and understand math, which had 
beat busârated for so many years, became less and less 
real to him. I made a pohit of showhig him that he had made 
real improvements and that he was gainingjon his goal.; 
Hut kept his motivation up and he came from bâiJnd with' 
heaw handicaps to pass the course.. 

But this makeshift is not the stuff of which an opti- 
mum learning environment is built. Such an environment 
would be deliberately structured to motivate its students and 
would never tiy to teach abilities unless ifcan link in some 
goal. A studoit who does not see calculus 9È:^mttj(fA.vp^. 
proadihig one of his goals will not learn caictdus no matter 
how it is taught. 

I've thought about tills and next year hope to devise a 
way to do a goals assessment on each student so that I can 
bring more order hito this end of the course. I would Uke to 
develop some methods for creating goals of value and for 

;.deariy. relating calculus to various, different goals that the 
students do have, but as yet I have worlœd out no system 
that suits me or could be fitted hito thelimited time allowed 
for the course. Student goals should be assessed and creat- 
ed before counes are assigned. Naturally the skills for 
doing this cannotbe acquired ovemighti . 

A lecturer will also ask about attendance. It soon be- 
comes obvious, however, when you nin sudi a woriohop that 
a student just can't be away very often without Us'absence 
bdng noticed. I made it very plain that I would allow no 
student to write the final exam who had been absent fre- 
quently without reason and had not completed his check- 
sheet or done his share of test correcting. The attendance 
was considerably better than lecture attendance, but, of 
course, I did have trouble with Saturday classes. 


In spite of the &ct that the experiment was a radical 
departure from accepted practice and this was the first 
year it had been tried and a great many mistakes were 
made, the results were significantly better than the con- 
trol group and certahily better than any results I have 
achieved hi my dght years of teachhig this first calculus 
course. The final exam results are summarized in the 
graidi (Figure 2) and accompanyhig table. 

The graph shows what, happened at a glance. The ex- 
perimental class is lo\i^ra*flimks and near-flunlo and rises 
above the confrol groupas we move hito the higher maries. 
I had 12% fewer flunks and 11% more fhst classes than the 
control group, and no students who learned nothhig. 

Unfortunatdy I have no measure of "retention." To 
get such a result. we would have to retest the groups at a 
later date and compare the results, and also measure re- 
leaming speeds. LeanUng theory would, however, predict 
that the retention of the experimental class would be hi^er 
than that of the control group. The experimental dasis 
maintabied an evm rate of leamhig throughout the year. 
My students noticed that they were alvrays ahead of the 
other classes in thdr ability to do problems. The tradition- 
al study pattern of calculus 224 is to take lecture notes and 
then embaric on a crash learnhig program in the spring, a 
practice which always produces low retention of material if 
it is neglected after the f hial. ' 

Many of my students have come to me with comments. 
The aspect of the course almost universally liked was the 
way it ruthlessly kept the studoit's attention on his errors 
while acknowled^g what he knew. This clarification of 
thdr position vastly appealed to the studoits. The thnid 
one .learoed dearly where he was making progress and 
'this-ërased his self-doubt, and the overconfident one was 
kept hi'toach with what his abilities really were. In the end 
I can say that I have never been more warmly recdved by 
any clas s. 

Another lecturer will be bound to ask what about the 
Urne spent on giving the coune? Well, it turned out to be 
con^derable. I spent about two hours working on the course 
for every hour I spent with the students and at times more 
than that when I had a lot of organizational work to do. Most 
of the steady work involved making up answer sheets for 
the tests and correcting those tests I did not assign to stu- 
dents and looldng over the tests corrected by studoits and 
making up the redo exams. As it was, the work load would 
have been impossible tqicany if the students had not done 
a great deal of ttie prâiminàry correcthig. 

I feel that thé outside time spent on the course can be 
rniuced' considerably when I get the tests organized on a 
more gradient scale so that they present less correction 
problems and when I devise a more effident system for 
student partidpation hi the correction process. Naturally 
the.very heavy hiitial organizational woric wUI nearer have 

' The ei^pl^^l^ade ah attempt to keep the^^oit's 
attoition fixed on some area of calculus he was just ready 
to master by providing him with graded tests that he was 
required to complete perfectly one by one. It was an Im- 
provement on lectures alone, but I am not satisfied an ade- 
quate job was done. "■- 

. The way the course was organized each student did the 
same number of tests and the same number of problems. 
Thus hi one important respect it was impossible to treat 
the students as mdividuals. To some students the gradient 
was too easy and they progressed rapidly - but by doing more 
work than they needed and learning less than they could 
have. Other students had much hl^er error rates than

average but moved ahead to the next test anyway when fitey 
had completed thdr redos.^MeaUy they shoidd have been 
•left in^a cërtain test arâ'^until their first-frial error rate 
had dropped below an acceptable levd. 

This last reform is difficult to introduce because of the 
rigid time dement that calls for a final exam in the spring. 
Those students with high error rates should be made to do 
more work, sometimes as much as three to four times as 
much work; but since these tend to be the slow students 
who ah-eady have' to work to capacity to keep up, it would 
mean slowing them down drastically to the pohit where they 
would not complete the course hi time. 

Thus I was sacrifidng competence for time and this 
very definitdy showed up in the final exam results. Only 
. one of my very strongly error-prone students made a first 
class and he was an excepUonally hard woricer who was weU 
moUvated.-One error-prone student who did complete the 
course flunked the fhial, partly because he didn't sleep 
enough the night before, but iargdy because he needed 
more work than the others to consolidate what he had . 
learned and I wasn't providing the work, though he might no' 
have had time to do it if I had. 

The tests were cpihposed somewhat hurriedly- though 
out of many years expoience with calculus students -and 
thus tended to vary considerably as to difficulty. The gra- 
dient scale from one test to the next was not always the 
easy path it should have been to keep the student focused 
on what he could do, but this was muted by the fact that 
when in difficulty the student could râll on me or another 
student for hdp. Thus, where I had made the gradient scale 
too steep, I bivolved myself mostly in a lot of extra explan- 
atory work. 

One thing I would Uke to do but won't be able to for 
lack of facilities, is to devdop special materials which 
could be assigned individually to students as the need 
arose. Some students require special briefing on a subject 
which is obvious to someone else. Sometimes I have' my 
own viewports which I fed aren't adequatdy put hi the 
textbooks but would be of use to my class. Some students 
need special motivational material which can best be given 
hi the traditional hispired lecture form- the hidustrial 
uses of math, tidbits from the history of math, how general

how a mathematician and a nonmathematidan would look at

My general feeUng is that such a course as the one I've ' 
so cruddy backed out of the materials available to me has 
far more potenthd for development than does any course 
hog-tied to goose^tepphig lectura. AU a lecturer can do 
is learn how to 0ve better lectures to sleeping students. 
Within the framework of a more flexible structure (which 
can include lectures) we could actually work out techniques 
- gradually, over a period of time - which give the student 
what he has to have hi order to. leàni, leavhig less and 
less to the hazards of his upbrin^g and prior trahdng 
and the acddent of his goals.

The cops: Who do they defend? 

Monopoly One. Reinanber when yoii were 
a Ud and you and your lAeais would spend 
hours on end Mrtieeling and dealing in the 
game of Monopofy? And recall how you 
■hated the guy ^o horded all the good 
properties like Boardwalk and Parte Place, 
and there wasn't a spot on the board you 
could land on or where you wouldn't have to 
pay a fine and then get off? 

The game has ^ven much pleasure to all 
kinds of people, allowing them to make de- 
cisions which they are prevented from 
making in the society which the game re- 
flects. For in the llfe^ized reality, these 
people, the large majority, are excluded 
from the circle which exercises moral, 
political and economic control. This is the 
actual face of monopoly, the consequences 
of which are very meaningful to their lives. 

There are two fundamental differences 
between the game and the reality. In the 
pme there is no need for anyone to oiforce 
the rules; neither do the powerless agitate 
.to change the rules. 

|Ijbno|^ly>Two. There is another fund- 
'"Ijmqnopoly which is carefully guard- 
rSnbnbpoly over the use of legitimate 
violence. This power is granted to only one 
body of men who are distinguished from the 
remainder of the population by their cloth- 
es, their trainhig and thdr mentality. These 
men go under many games corresponding 
to the perception vrtilch the people who they 
interact with have of them. Cops, police, 
fuzz, pigs, occupation forces, protectora - 
all refer to the same men in blue. No 
matter what the label, their authority is 
widely accepted by the populace they regu- 
late, a populace who, by their tadt appro- 
|yid4ànd;^Ç(iuie9cœ|K,'^gm the police 
l'Ifiiâr^was.^UnfôHunately.'and here is 
the nub, they do not control the police any 
more than they influence the agents of en- 
forcement monopoly, the wielders of econo- ' 
mic, political and social monopoly. These, 
men make decisions for them not with them. 
m'. . ' . ■ - V ' 

^e concept of monopoly is anathema to 
democracy. One cannot have a working oil-- 
garchy at the same time as one professes 
to include all the citizens in the decision- 
making process. The emperor is parading 
around with no clothes and very few reali- 
ze it, least of all thej>oUo^L$>deed the cops 
when reacting agaitas{*Mciâ>^UsDrder see 
themselves protecting the overwhelming 
majority from the violence of the dis- 
gruntled few. These few refuse to play' 
the game of real monopoly by the rules of 
the winners and the cop is incensed. He 
feels moralfy impelled to sprrad his um- 
brella of order over society u^a^de to 
snuff out the dissidents. 

Unfortunately the cop lives a myth. The . 
power which pins the badge to his coat 
lies not' with the people but with the back^ in Ottawa, Qud)ec, Montreal. 
These are the people he dèfâds above all. 
Bdind his shield transpires the wheeling 
and dealing of the "for real" monopoly 
champs, the St. James street businessman ; 
as wdl as the distortion and dishonesty of 
the media, the hypocrisy of the courts which 
profess one syston of justice but which 
practice two - one for the rich, another for 

As the prestigious President's Report 
of the National Advisory Commission on 
Civil disorders states: "Uie police are a 
symbol of all that the powerless are 
against - assembly Une justice, vdde dto- 
pariUes in sentences, antiquated correc- 
tional facilities, basic hiequities of the 
system on the poor, to whom, for example, 
the option of ball means only jail". And 
this is in a country whose citizens have 
superior safeguards in their deaUngs with 
the police than do the dUzens of Canada. 
Hie inddence of the poor being exduded 
from counsel and bdng induded in vagran- 

cy is highly disproportionate to the rest of 
the population. The public protectors guard 
a sdective rather than all indusive public. 
Money is often the selective factor. Too 
many , people are jammed outside of the 
shdtor of the umbrella. 

People do not like to be controlled and 
if they realize it they begin to break thdr 
rules. The policeman responds from a gut 
levd; "violence mustlp^He does not 
see how he b being used. 

Sodal Disorder and the Agents of Social 

The policeman, in short, is caught in the 
crunch of social change. In Qud)ec this 
crundi is espedaUy strong. Thé crunch 
began with the quiet revolution and the pol- 
itirâl awakening. Under the pressure, the 
exposure of the oppressive institutions gave 
impetus to much flailing about and aviation 
for change. The quiet revolution oftoi be- 
trays it's name. ' 

The ideal cop who defends every 
citizen impartiallY is a dead myth. 
A nd the jolce is really on you. 

"It b argued that whoi people are mini- 
mally involved in a social system and fed 
little stake hi it, and \^ere channels for the 
expression of plevances are absent or in- 
operative, violence b more likdy. The 
dedine^of ^American , Labor violence as 
the labor indvément gained recognition b of- 
ten cited as an example - the powerless 
have only the power to disrupt an unjust so- 
dety. The violence b seen to have served 
as a kind of primitive political mechanbm 
wherd>y minor, concessions are gained, not 
unlike^the-'almost institutional rioting in 
eighteehtK'céhfaïry England..." (Gary Marx, 

In response to thb healthy flexing of the 
human spirit against authoritarianbm, we 
see the other side of the crunch ~ the autho- 
ritarian muscling of the police. Tlie police- 
man mi^t be sympathetic to the dissenters 
if he were not impelled by hb btstitutional 
mentality. He b, after all, the agent of the 
decision makers who trust to him a crucial 
part of their monopoly - that of violence. 
In respondhig to thb trust he becomes a pig. 

When the cop dons hb garb, hb ego un- 
dergoes drastic transformations. He b 
forced to maintain not only personal but hi- 

sUtutional pride. A nasty remark which he 
would have shlriced off were he wearing a 
dviliam dress, becomes a major affront 
viien addressed to him b uniform. In the 
eyes of the cop, theiinsult^ls^not only an 
insult to him penonkU^'bàt lâh insult to the' 
entire force, indeed to the whole sodety. 

Trivial taunts become colossal; to hb own 
mind, the dignity of the foree depends on hb 
reaction. Thus the hapless and foolish taunt- 
er b retaliated agahist by action which re- 
presents thé collective indignation of the 
entire force exerdsed by the aggrieved cop. 

Minor hiddents become threats. Taylor 
Buckner, a^former cop, now a sodologist 
at Shr Géoige^^btes to hb classes the 
policeman's pbssesive attitude toward hb 
beat and the threat he percdves to Us turf 
from congregating groups of kids. Both 
the kids and the cop regard the streeb as 
their domain, even as thdr home. The kids 
dblike the cop because he drives arrogant- 
ly through thdr living room and the police 
resent the Idds because they are clogging tip 

Given thb seiuitive police ego, it b nôt 
hard to see how the policeman might react 
to even the most peaceful expressions of 
political dissent. Rooted as he b in hb self 
conception of keeper of the quiet, these ma- 
nifestations of unrest pose a minor Identity 

"Hie true copper's dommant characterist- 
ics, if the truth he knows, are neither those 
daring nor vidous qualities that are some- 
times attributed to iiim by friend or enemy, 
but an ingrained conservatbm and ahnost 
desperate love of the conventional. It b 
untidiness, disorder, the uniutial that a cop- 
per disapproves of most of all: far more 
even than of crime, which is merdy a pro- 
fessional matter. Hence his profound db- 
like of people loitering in streeb, dresshig 
extravaganUy, speaking with exotic accenb, 
bdng strange, weak, eccentric, or 'sbnply 
of any strange minority - of thdr doing, iri 
fact, anytUng that cannot be safdy predict- 
ed." (Colin Mclnnes, Mr. Love and Just- 
ice,p74). , 

Therefore, the question of whom does the 
,cop defend b pttftly answered by saying: 
himself, or at least that conception of pro- 
priety in the world which b udque to him- 

Certain conditions of threat more than 
others bring out the pig in the cop. When 
the cop patrob a district of mixed ethnic 
makeup, unified only by common Immigrant 
statoi^^thieaj^turated atmosphere b 
pn^ldK^liftbnât^ètc^ becomes high- 
ly àctinitéd, can over diarge and go beserk. 
The slum diwellers, already alienated from 
their synthetic environment, from their 
downgrading jotts, from their hustling kids 
and finally from themsdves, brbtle with 
hostility as thb baton widdhig cop hi 
crbp blue uniform struts down the street 
' flaunting hb authority and all the power 
which b unavaUable to them. The kids them- 
selves are ripe for social upheaval. Booted 
out by the pool hall owners, ydled at by 
the restaurant preprietors, they eat and 
sleep and breath rejedion. .Only the sidewalk 
offers tadlitles for human interaction. Until

The new Beatle 

To review an album which is characterized by 
the scope, depth and complexity of the Beatles* 
Christmas '68 release is a task which defies the 
imagination, in fact, it is commonly known that 
John Lennon has more, than once said, "I bet. Pi-, 
casso. . . has been laughing his balls off for the last 
eighty years". John is implying that the sleekly 
packaged album can provide satisfaction for every- 
one and is the perfect holiday seaso^neifU^j. 

The dual-disced album is, flrsf^^mSlfbremost, 
a major work of art. It has many layers of mean- 
ing: it must be consumed progressively, towards 
the core - ^he succulent apple has become a bitter- 
téarfiil onion (a glass onion). The best we can do is 
offer a brief guide to the songs which provide the 
metaphysical underpinnings of the set. Our task 
is facilitated by the many hours of tapes made by 
the Beatles while they were planning.the recording. 

BACK IN THE U.S.S.R. - Paul in a musical 
critique of revisionism and liberal fascism and the 
decadent similarities between the two systems. 

GLASS ONION - John, who said himself. "This 
cryptic anagram is the key to the whole. . . album." 

HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN - John, in a play- 
ful parody of social mores, including sex. violence, 
drugs, religion, comnrierce and comic strips. 

PIGGIES -^Grolèé. the only Beatle who is pre- 
pared to take a disciplined political stand, in a 
slashing attack. on Daley's. cops, inspired by George 
Orwell's Animal Farm, i^^*: 

ROCKY RACCOON - Paul, in a tribute to Dylan's 
insightful and highly relevant commentaries on the 
American Way of Life. 

in a delightful satire of the fad which originated 

with Federico Fellini of artists commenting on their 
own creative process. 

I WILL - John in an answer to Paul's "Why 
Don't We Do It On The Road?" 

HELTER SKELTER - Paul, in one of the many 
songs which point up his chief concern: the growing 
chaos and violence of Western Civilization, and the 
attendant decline in the quality of most pop music: 
"She's coming down fast/Yes she is/Yes she is''.. . 

REVOLUTION 1 - JohnAennon, in the^lsecond 
take' of a song which was^l^Sject of intensive 
textual analysis the moment it ^ca me out. When 
Paul's grandfather asked him "Why?" his only res- 
ponse was "I didn't really mean it." 

REVOLUTION 9 - The logical conclusion to "I 
Am the Walrus", a John Cage for the masses, beyond 
the eight-fold way, a merging of politics and art -

As Yoko Ono 
sees him 

Tbe Beatles' latest album, 


comes in a plain white cover (tee, hee) 

a song sheet with all the words to all 30 songs (groovy) 


-special bonus- 
That's very good. 
Now you'll have something to look at vAien you get 
bored listening to the music. 

Sitting through the Beatles' new album is difficult. 
Yoii find you're not paying attention after the first few 
cuts, and you realize you're simply forcing your way, 
through the rest of the numbers. 
>^^^<^iPepple will make it The Beatles have be- 
^ne^a^habit, and addicts have to hear the new al- 
bum. The fans and the critics are already starting 
to praise it. 

"The newlB^Ues' album, you see, is - well, it 
portrays the alienation, the disaffection, the hunger, 
the, ah, up-tightness of society today...great, fan- 
tastic.their best..poetty of the Now Generation... 
rap, rap." 

Maybe it's because I've had Hey, Jude and Revolu- 
tion played at me out of every jukebox in towm for 
the last three months, but I find the Beatles, and 
their new album, a drag. 

I should have expected it; after all, the Beatles, 
like every other rode group, are only in it for the 
money. But I liked Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club 
Band, and I thought they could do it again. They 

Tbe new album is a totally conunercial product, 
from the too^ute all-white cover (yeah, I laiow all 
about extravagant album covers, but this thing is a 
little obvious) through the pictures to the song sheet. 

I could overlook that if the music, vliich is really 
what an album is all about (that's not as obvious as it 
seems; I have tbe feeling that a lot of United States 
critics like the Small Faces' Ogden's Nut Gone Flake 
because of the round cover on the U.S. release), were 
more substantia], but that's not the case. 

Sure, the album contains the typical Beatle-clever 
lyrics and Beatle-bright tunes, and a few of the cuts 
.(especially the down-tempo version of Revolution) 
are quite good, but most of tt lacks the sense of mo- 
tion that gives life to rock. 

In fact, I find myself listening more to the Buffalo 
Springfield's farewell woric, Last Time Around, than 
to the Beatles' creation. At least the Springfield record 
has Steve Stills' super-fine guitar and vocals break- 
ing through. ■• / . 

But the Beatles, more financially successful than 
bands such as the Buffalo Springfield, are free of the 
pressures which force other groups to create. A little 
pressure, evidently, is a good thing. 

Without that pressure, the Beatles have lost any 
of the drive they ever had. Like a successful pro foot- 
ball team, they've struck with plays that work, but when 
the game around them changed, they were left behuid. 

Simple failure or ref ^l^ change its style is no 
shi in a rock band. How!mucb-bave the great blues 
men changed in the last 20 years? But continued de- 

■'•1 «>v g^- .. . . - 

velopment is tbe oidy tUng that justifies a group's 

And the new Beatles' album contains, as they say 
hi tbe newscasts, no new developments. All the good ol' 

standards are there, the historic Beatle styles and 
the typical pop themes, but it's as flat as day-old 

At least one of those styles should be allowed to 
die a quiet death. When I'm Sbcty-four on Sgt. Pepper, 
in its quaint, British music hall way, was a novel touch, 
but similar cuts on the new album (Ob-La-Di, Ob-La- 
Da) are simply a bore. 

I get the impression, and other people have sug- 
gested it, that the album is an elaborate put-on, a 
(what does Tbne call it?) spoof on me, on you, on the 
music of the Beatles and everybody else. 

If so, the album is a waste of effort. If the Beatles 
want to play little games,>they should play them among 
themselves, or have you abéady forgotten that they were 
tbe ones who gave us thé Maharishi? 

With all this presented in a tight, well-produced 
album, it's a little like Disneyland on wax. It's pretty 
hi some places, mildly hiterestbig -in others, but the 
shadow of Mickey Mouse hangs over all of it. 

And you know you have to pay to get in. 

But those who lay down their money will be those 
who are responsible for the Great Beatle Bummer. 

For four years, thek fans have unquestioningly 
patronized the Beatles like spoiled brats, and this 
overindulgence has had its effect on thehr work. 

From the fhrst flush of Beatlemania, the fans 
have bought everything theur idols have 'turned out, 
and the critics (some of whom, like Ralph Gleason, 
weren't even listening to rock before the Beatles hap- 
pened) have repeatedly praised them as geniuses. 

While groups such as the Buffalo Springfield were 
turning out good material without tunung too many 
heads, the Beatles were almost casually feeding this 
hungry crowd. 

While other musicians were sweating to put some- 
thing together that would please either the top-40 
pbnple-cream crowd or the more discerning listeners, 
ithe Beatles were taking it easy. 

They had a ready audience. They had a reputa- 
tion. They had money. They had security. They didn't 
have to by, and, after Sgt. Pepper, they stopped try- 

Sgt Pepper marked the conclusion of the period 
they entered with Revolver. Revolver was the first 
major album on vMdi recording techniques were used 
to create music which could not be reproduced hi con- 

Sgt. Pepper represented the development of rock 
recording tediniques to. the maximum. If the engineer- 
ing had been carried any further, the drive of live 
rode would have been lost. 

Once arrived at that golden point of sophisticated 
rock, the Beatles could find noviiere to go, as shown 
Magical Mystery Tour and the current release. It does 
not matter, however, to the Beatles; the fans will buy 
the new album, as they have done before. 

But if we've lost the Beatles, we still have others 
to move us. Dylan, for one, carries on miles above and 
ahead of everybody else. And the Rolling Stones have 
turned off Pepperism and are heading back to the

must be responsive not only to their own judgment, but 
to their police superiors, politicians and every voter who

monopolize their lives. 

So the ex-military men move in. They are accustomed 
to and prefer being told what to do. They can continue to 
wield the brute force which was an integral part of their 
former role. Recently arrived immigrants join too. They 
want to contribute to their new society. They assume that

Anyone really concerned with renovating or restructur-

thus has John described 
his final statement on Re- 
volution. To quote him di- 
rectly. "It proves what 
we've always thought about 
a lot of so-called art. It's 
all a lot of shit..": 

The Beatlesilalbpg with 
Leonard Cohen' and Bob 
Dylan, have - proved that 
members of ethnic minor- 
ities can make it in the pop 
world. But even more im- 
portant, they have shown 
that class mobility^iSj,jtill

(CoatiMcd froa Paie 9) 

There are signs that other 
groups are breaking out of 
their awe of Sgt. Pepper, an 
album which had every band 
from London to Los Angeles 
scared into over-production. 

Recent releases by the Band, 
the Byrds, Buttcrfield and the 
two outlaws; of .electric blues, 
Mike Bloonifiéld and Al 
Kooper, lead me to believe 
that some people, at least, 
have kept theu* heads together. 

Maybe things are gonna be 

I hope so. 

I couldn't take another rec- 
ord like Jimi Hendrix' Elec-

Miles Davis at the Black Bottom 

// you've got the dough - dig 

by Mike Boone 

^ Miles Davis, probably the 
best trumpet player in jazz, is 
appearing through tomorrow 
night at the Black Bottom in Old 
Montreal. His talents are over- 
whelming and he should not be 
missed, but a review of his show

jazz men. It was the fiiit jimc

formancc and I had no idea what 
the band was doing. The music, 
however was superb. Davis' side 
men are professional and excel- 
lent, delivering a solid perfor- 
mance while seeming to be bored 
stiff by the whole affair. Tony 
Williams has been playing with' 
Davis for years and his drum- 
ming made most rock drummers 
sound terribly irrelevant. Wil- 
liams was complemented by 
Chick Corca. who plays good elec- 
tric piano, but solos were less 
than overpowering. Bassist Da- 
ve Holland was a real treat and 
his solo work on the last tune 
of the set drew a long and loud 
round of applause. Most solo ma- 
terial was done by Davis and. 
Wayne Shorter. Shorter plays 
beautiful tenor and soprano sax! 
The occasions on which he and 
Davis played together were par- 
ticularly exciting. Miles Davis 
did about 10 minutes of soloing 
in . the set and his horn playing 
belies his reputation as an angry 
not-so-young man. . His solos 
reflect more of a subtle, in- 
tellectual mood than an angry, 
violent statement. He's still 
playing "cool" jazz and playing 
it fantastically well. When he's

not solohig, Davis wanders aim- 
lessly through the club. You get 
the feeling that he!d rather be 
home in bed. 

Getting a great talent like Mi- 
les Davis is quite a coup for the 
management of the Black Bottom. 
There are, liovvever. some sad 
economic. truUis involved in 
the situation. Miles Davis. I 
would presume, comes rather 
expensive and the Black Bottom 
is a small, intimate club. What 
this means for the customer 
is tickets at $5 per set. Checking 
your ragged outerwear is a 
quarter, and a kindly soul will 
give another quarter or so to 
the man who takes you to your 
table. Incidentally, unless you're 
sharply attired and look like a 
big tipper, you'll get a crummy 
table in the rear. Drinks, of 
which you're obliged to purchase 
at least one, cost $1.50 plus tip. 
So by now you're up to $7.50 a 
head and more if you're thirsty. 

Each show lasts approxhnate- 
ly 45 minutes and then you're in- 
vited to either buy another admis- 
-sion ticket and start the cycle 
over or depart. In short, this is a 
bit more expensive than Saturday

in an hour violence flared". (David Marx). 

The Montreal police have their share of 
. gang phobias. A few months ago, a corp- 
oration was created in the Parle Extension 
district wfaidi hopes, through a newspaper, 
the building of a recreation centre and the 
organizing of creative activity, to forge a 
sense of conununity among the people. Un-

obtahied, the organizers inêi|iBtn^*^ùp 

of Uds to Udtj|n|mid some problôns'aind 
devdope fàffîfr^jects. Two detectives 
walked by and sensed a threat. They enter- 
er the garage and demanded to imow the 
nature of the meeting. After being given 
the hiformation, they admonished the kids 
to bdiave themselves and keep it quiet. 
Eiich Fromm wrote that man tries to 
transcend his creature status by either 
creating something himself or by destroy- > 
hig. Policemen, it seens, encounter difficulty 
:in ascertahiing whether a group is enga^ 
ed in the latter or the former. 

Occasionally, a progressive police dep- 
artment will embark on a let's-get-to-know- 
the-conmiunity programme. Only their 
mentality gets in the way. 

A year and half ago, the Montreal Police 
Departmoit revamped the youth aid division 
in order to integrate its men more fully 
into the life of the conununities they patrol- 
led. According to Capitaine René Mongeau, 
dhrector of the division, the aim of this 
programme is to put the police in a prev- 
entive and rechanneling role rather than hi 
a suppressive one. Among other things. 
Youth Aid Cars are expedally marked; pol- 
icemen organize, youth groups, dances, 
Christmas dinnôs, bike rallies, class-' 
room talks, slide shows and television 

' Directeur Mongeau is particularly proud 
of the way his department handles kids who 
gather oh the sidewalk and obstruct the 
pedestrian thoroughfare. Instead of issuing 
an authoritarian (Uctate to scram, the cops 
tareat the Uds to a booklet entiUed "You 
and the Law" vrtiidi they must read and on 
which thqr must write an essay to be deli- 
vered to ibé police station a few days later. 

talent spots. Policemen, to qualify for 
the department, must write a thesis on 
some aspect of youth; and attoid classes led 
by sociology and psychology professors. The 
policeman as pal is best exemplified by the 
Youth Aid Division. All hi all, it's a pretty 
progressive department except for that 
creephig mentality. 

The trouble is that most cops have not 
yet disgarded the Protestant work ethic. 
An officer hi Park|b(tension verbally blast- 
ed a boy on a street comer, telUng hbn to 
get a job, come home at, flyeljtfdodtpand 
do somethhig useful aftéwéirdrDiDe'mtch- 
ing TV. In this aspect, the Youth' Aid Div- 
ision is no more enli^toied. The Polider- 
educateur, when he visits a school, is in- 
structed by his handbook to say: "before 
you know it, you who sit in your desks will 
be sitting at the Univeiri^andiwill enter 
^our lifetime careor. You|^^^as I do, 
that a Job requires : wonrat wro ge and- 
sacrifice (emphaisls mine)!'^^^''' 

Otherwise, the police will go to the kid's 
house to get it. 

When the name Policier Educateur was 
chosen, it was an honest choice. Certahily 
an authoritarian teacher is preferable to 
an authoritarian cop, but its still a long way 
from alieviathig the crunch of social change. 

Even a progressive cop is trapped by his 
own obedience^riented and noncritical 
training. There is no room on a police force 
for.Hamlets with helmets. Hie cop will al- 
ways be bound to his three-headed role as 
pig, pal and protector, with the relative pro- 
portions dependent on the individual depart- 

Not only does the cop misunderstand the 
historical realiUes of disorder and social 
change, but his superiors usually can give 
Um no help. Observe Police IMrector 
Gilbert's crusade to bar undesh'able 
agitators from altering the country 
to attend the Hemispheric Conference. 
Maxvvell Cohen termed Gilbert's action 

a "misundietstandhig of ideological' 

As long as the policeman defends the 
elite forces which he does, he will not 
escape the crunch of social dissent. 
Only when the police join the commu- 
nity hi militating for better houshig 
conditions, self actualizing education,' 
Mrer economic distribution and diffusion 
of decision maUng power to ^ve the peo- 
ple control of their own lives, will they 
begin to provide real public service. 

One step in the right direction would 
be to create a special -grievance section 
of the police department with offices hi 
every community and -with little bureau- 
cracy to hinder the filing of complahits. 

Another setup would be to place citizens 
on thé jwllce review boards, have the ag- 
grieved present and the hearings held hi 
the open. These are policies which are 
so obvious that they were even recom- 
mended by the US Advisory Commission 
on Qvil Disorders and favored by Capi- 
taine Mongeau and Maxwell Cohen. Police 
Director Gilbert, however, doesn't like the 

In the leaflet from which the school lect- 
ures were taken, the life which awaits 
the criminal in prison is painted in un- 
invithig hostile colors. "Prison means re- 
moval of liberty.' One is told when to do 
sometUng, where to^go,ijtowJ|o^8Ct. He is 
condemned to solitude'^and^ boredom." To 
miany Uds on the street comers, this is 
no gruesome prospect but only a more ot 
less accurate description of life as they , 
know it.

night at the movies. It's regretta- 
ble that special shows weren't 
set up for the starving student 
element but it's understandable. 
If the Black Bottom is going to 
bring in top talent somcbixly 
has to pay for it. As usual the 
music loving proletariat loses. 

One. of the major factors con- 
tributing to the musicians' air 
of sleepy disinterest was the 
make-up of the audience. Jazz, 
v^ch once upon a time was the. 
music of tlie poor, has become 
the privilege of Uie rich. The 
majority of the crowd was compos- 
ed of nattily attired fat cats, 
drawn tiiither by I know not what. 
The big tippers and booze consu- 
mers displayed little in the way 

at the right times. The band had 
little rapport with the audience 
and responded, quite predictably, 
by plajing fairly -well with just 
enough enthusiasm- to make the 
average chartered accountant 
think they were peally cooking. 

Jazz has sort of become hip 
since Hugh Heffner incorporated 
it into the Playboy syndrome. 
You know the scene: penthouse 
"pad", Chivas Regal, tall blonde 
vrith 39". all-day sucken' and 
Miles Davis on the $1000 stereo. 
Getting laid to good music has 
caught on with the bourgeois 
"swinger" element. Musicians 
like Miles Davis can't be blamed 
for making a ijbuckj^ere they 
, can. And jazz nii^d?l£s pander-

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 13th. 1968 


The term started September 19, but 
for the Daily Staff, the beginning was at 
about 12.30 on the morning of Septem- 
ber 26, when Mark Starowicz was- ap- 
pointed 'editor after about six months 
of various stages of in-fighting... be- 
fore that, the campus was served by 
one "McGill Free Press" produced by 
two editors and person or persons un- 
known to this very day... besides the 
Dally affair, the Free Press era saw 
the final stages of the fight for student 
representation on Senate: eight students 
now sit on an expanded Senate, but that 
doesn't mean any sort of effective power 
In the decision-making apparatus at 
this Institution... eight students are 
still only a voice.' 

good jobs ('the technical steam") 
weren't going to get good jobs because 
there weren't enough jobs. When Edu- 
cation Minister Jean-Guy Cardinal 
announced a decrease in loans, the 
CEGEPs revolted... It started at CE- 
GEP Lionel Groulx in Ste. Thérèse, 
and spread until over half of the pro- 
vince's twenty-three CEGEPs were 
Involved... In the middle of the whole 
mess. Students' Council (which by the 
way missed getting a quorum a total 
of four times this term, which must 
have set some kind of record) called 
on Senate to take a stand on the^tu 
tion, and to do so In an opep.ineiefing. 

retrievably split, but that's not really 
news... there was another Course 
Guide "scandal": It seems every time 
a course guide is produced, the money 
ends up going the wrong way... John 
Ross BraH" i, the chairman of No- 
rar-* ^ot an honorary degree 

froi ...e Gazette said "(Sazet- 

te ji ... sioutham", and the Star said 
"Southam buys Gazette"... we had a 
thing called Rendezvous '68 and 100,- 
000 people were supposed to come and 
see what McGill Is really like... Mc- 
Gill is guides at every door to help 
you where you want to go... McGill is 
red and white ribbons flying from 
every lamp... McGill is a day's 
holiday for those "tag-alongs" - the 
students... anyway, nowhere near 100,- 
000 people showed, and probably all the 
better because now they don't know 
what McGltl is like... 

We had the first open meeting of the 
new Senate, and the same day the Daily 
had tasteful and not-so-tasteful pen- 
sketches of prominent senators but 
October 31 was one day too early for a 
November crisis, so the whole thing 
blew over... we had two new constitu- 
tions defeated at the polls because 
not enough people showed up to even 
make the voting valid... the residents 
marched in front of the "Visitor" to 
the University - Governor-General Ro- 
land Michener for better food... René 
Levesque, Réal Caouette, and David 
Lewis came to speak on "L^ Question 
Nationale"... Students' Council, on one 
of the times it met, approved setting 
up of a 350-unit co-operative residen- 
ce.... UGEQ (l'Union Générale des Etu-

for a while It looked like UCLA was 
ready to go again... 

Then came the attack on the depart-

sically the same (a say in departmen-

curriculum).. English. Architecture.

Right after the organization at the 
departmental level started, it was over- 
shadowed by another in a continuing 
series of crises in Quebec education... 
the story of the CEGEPs has been told 
a million and one'times. but a million 
and two won't hurt: basically. CEGEP 
(a breed of junior college set up two 
years ago) students were dissatisfieo 
for two reasons: the ones studying to 
go on to university ("the academic 
stream") weren't going to get into 
university because there weren't enough 
places, and the ones studying to get

came far-from their original demands., 
le^ticcupation also proved that the 
es retain an audience outside 
McGill... when the Daily ran a feature 
article on the thirty-third anniversary 
of Warshaw's. Warshaw's promptly sent 
forty apples to the occupation... Ben's 
by the way, added twelve chicken sand- 

The CEGEP mess was settled after 
a gigantic march through the streets 
of downtown Montreal. Estimates of 
the crowd varied from 3,000 from 
(CJMS, the French equivalent of CKGM 
when it comes to student-baiting) to 
7,000 (The Gazette) to 7.500 (The Mont-

CBC, and the McGill Daily).... they all 
massed on the McGill campuS;^and 
marched by. the Administration ^ Build-

rest of the city... the basic causes of 
the unrest remain, and the CEGEP 
revolt did show an awful lot of people 
just exactly where the government is 
at vIs-a-vis education... It would be 
very surprising if the second French 
language university which the CEGEP 
students demanded and got were to be 
any sort of success at all if it even gets 
ofnhe ground... The whole thing could 
happenfagain unless the government 
improves its educational policies. 

Other things were happening too... 
Sir George gave students eleven seats

The end of the term saw one large 
question mark In the future of educa- 
tion In the province, and in the future 
of McGill. A plan for setting up an 
English-language CEGEP network was 
finally emerging, but like all matters 
educational around here, it was any- 
ting but final... we had a week-long 
confrontation here, but at the Univer- 
sity of New Brunswick, It lasted tvvo 
months... Raymond Lemieux made his 
first appearance on campus in mid- 
October when he held a Hyde Park and 
called the educational system in the

Ah, Christmas. The tree, the presents, the turkey. , 
The laughter and gaiety of THE day. 

Many people however, never get to enjoy our prized holiday treats. They are not as lucky 
as we are. So. in the past, well-thinking church groups. Women's Auxiliaries and radio stations, 
have remembered the poor for this one day. They have collected donations from their members 
or listeners for a turkey and all the trimmings and nicely wrapped household trinkets, books, 
old dolls, decks of cards, litte pieces of ribbon-all sorts of things which we are fortunate enough 
to have while the destitute go hungry. / 

Certainly one of my fondest memories from grade school was watching the big stack of 
goodies for "our poor family" pile up. 

One year, I was one of the three students chosen to,dellver the presents and I shall always 
remember the embarrassed blush of delight on the lady's face when she came to the door. I shall 
always remember the smile on each of the five children's faces when I put the big cardboard box 
in the small living room. ■ 

"Oh, goodie, yippee." • 

And the mother, tearful, "Thank you Miss Marcus (It. was the first time anyone ever called 
me that). My class just clapped when I told them how very happy the family was. So happy. 

But this part of Christmas -giving to those less fortunate -threatens to become but a lovely 
childhood memory: The number of destitute families in the city is now almost negligible. In the 
last five years, according to a recent WMBS sur\'ey, the number has fallen 4.35% to a rock-bot- 
tom low of 1.017c. of the population. 

The number In this group, as I said, has declined, while the demand for them - frpm church 
groups, radio stations, schools, even companies- is on the rise. . ■ 

Surely there must be some way of preserving the Christian tradition of giving to unfortun- 

Perhaps my proposal Is the solution: it has bugs. I know. And there will be opposition from 
many respectable quarters: I know that. too. But I wonder if it isn't the best way to keep up this 
proud heritage. J - ■ ' 

Why*Tiot a pauper renting service? An agency dedicated to searching out those who are 
destitute, since I'm sure not all those really eligible have been dug out. In addition. It could appeal 
to families not destitute who habitate the appropriate areas to accept the Christmas baskets and 
compassion so many of us are so eager to lavish. 

Before the critics jump, let me go through the advantages one by one. 

First, it would maintain this important part of the holiday spirit by supplying women's clubs 
and the such with a family. Why, just the other week I lieard one of those afternoon CJAD com- 
mentators mention that her church group "always wanted a poor family, but didn't know how to go 
about getting one." Certainly a professional well-organized agency would balance the demand with 

the supply. ... 

Second, because most of the IODE chapters. Kinsmen and Canadian Legion groups which 
request the families are of moderate means, they could well afford to pay for the service. So the 
Agency, a' full-time year-round operation, could afford to salary several people thus helping to 
channel the idealism of some of our young people Into constructive projects. 

And ' thhrd, , by searching everywhere for the destitute, fewer impoverished families would 
be overlooked (as they most likely are now with the haphazard selection methods). In addition 
since the number of families available would be less than the market demand, simple poor people 
could be given a small stipend for their time on Christmas day, the money coming from the 
Agency's professional fee. 

How would It work? Needless to say, most of the technical details still have to be worked 
out. But let me propose one alternative: ' ' ■ y- '<y^:- ----''S ^ 

In October, the Agency, having worked hard all summer compiling names, could publish a 
book with thumbnail sketches of prospective families, much like the magazine notices for "Care" 
with the picture of little Liu Pu Yang or what have you. She's standing beside her house and the 
paragraph beside gives a brief biography of the family -father dead or crippled;- mother working 
hard fifteen hours a day at menial labour; ten sisters and brothers, each .one's story more touchtag 
than the one before. 

Here In Montreal the pictures coujd be in colour and the paragraphs more extensive (and 

Perhaps the operation could be successful enough to enable the Agency to rent premises 
and arrange for the donor and recipient to meet beforehand. Who knows, the Agency might be such 
a success it would be able to rent' multi-floored offices and pay the poor families to go on display, 
so the prospective clients could pick and choose with care. 

This last point Is. perhaps. Idle thinking. But it is nevertheless the ultimate answer: for by 
making these hito professional poor people, so to speak, the Agency would be helping them find 
occupational fulfilment. Yet that festive sph-lt of giving to the poor, so Integral a part of the 
Great Holiday, would bo retained. : - •

Original oil paintings. Mass produced, slickly advertised, soft sold. 

That , formula has made the owners of the expanding chain of Schertle art galleries very 
rich men. ' 

Open only ten months in Montreal, the two downtown galleries - in Place Ville Marie and 
on Sherbrooke Street West - have through radio campaigns and newspaper advertisements attract-, 
ed publicity and money. 

Money. That's the key to the 
operation.' Says one Mr.. Cbvde, 
Vice-President of Sales: We are 
in it for profit We cater to the 
unintelligent public which doesn't 
want to sit in front of a picture 
for hours and wonder what it 

So Schertle contracts struggling 
art students to produce twenty 
paintmgs a week, at "a certain 
standard." That "standard" us- 
ally means a slew of pictures all 
with boats at sea, or autumn trees 
or young girls - each differing

but puts horses in one or two of 
them, those two will be priced 

The company . m^es no pre- 
tense about being hi the business 
for anything but ^nioney... Besides 
Mr. Cowie, whom' we ftiet at Place? 
Ville Marie, a saleslady in the 
Sherbrooke Street branch ans- 
wered our queries about well- 
known artists with: "All our 
painters are relatively obscure.. 
This is quite a commercial ven- 
ture. Perhaps you belong down 
the street at the Klinkhoff GaUery 
or the museum".' 

Schertle does, however, offer a 
rationale: even .though, prof it is 
their prime moUvèl Mr. Cowie. 
because we keep stni^Ung artists 
In money so they can buy materials 
to pursue theh- woric." 

He claims theh* artists, from 
all over the worid, make between 
$40,000 and $60,000 a year. 

"Our artists can't afford to 
slow down. And they can't afford 
to go below the standards we 


The whole thing might sound 
crazy, but since the operation 
began S years ago in Philadelphia 
it has opened 137 stores around 
the .world. The. chahi has 34 in 
Canada, ht Montreal, Toronto, 
Winnipeg, Calgary, and will have, 
50 by February. 

Schertle got its start hi this 
city at Terre des Homme last 
summer. Prices were much low- 
er (averagbigj|12-20, as opposed 
to their ctimntliowntown prices 
which now average $130-180). Al- 
though sales weren't good, the idea 
"was to get the concept of Scher- 
tle across." 

, One thhd year McGill student 
who worked there give another 
view of the galleries. 

"I learnt about their operation 
slowly", he said, bitter yet hardly 
supressing a laugh. 

"Each thne you sold a painting 
.you took the file card off the back 
^(M^i^e^ painting and, wrote down 
?îiw'?number:'That way the ware- 
house knew the type of replace- 
ment to send the next day." 

The warehouse is located 
in Sherbrookeî about 90 miles 
southeast of Montreal; VAccord- 
ing to a McGill student, an art 
fan, it miist be "gigantic", as 
they transport the paintings to the 
stores in huge vans "like Stein- 
berg's trucks." 

He said the art seems to appeal 
to bushtess men "who want to de- 
corate their office walls and cou- 
ples who want original works of 
'art for theh: homes." 

"Customers really like the 
pauitings done with a palette 
knife. They can feel the thick 
pahit so they known it's real. 


Noted art historian and 

director of the Dominion 
Art Gallery Dr. IMax Stern 
deplores "trash painting." 

lîi^'cimë'lo^'ÏÏM^ the 
business was about. 

"The real money is in the fran- 
chises. The company, for a price, 
will set up an art gallery for a 
franchise-holder. Then of course, 
the store buys all theh: pictures 
through Schertle". 

He said one franchise holder 
from a different part of the coun- 
try came into the store saw one 
of the pictures (they are hung . 
side by side on the walls and 
stacked on the floors) and com- 
mented; "Hey the warehouse has 
twenty just like that." 

When the student got the job, 
at the same thne as another Mc 
Gill student, (the latter Jn . Fine 
Arts) they weren'tTïold|lnything 
about the artists. Wheii the Fme 
Arts student asked what she 
should if queried about the art- 
ists, a supervisor replied, "Use 
your common sense." 

Gradually, however, they found 
out little tidbits about the painters. 
Apparently, quite a few go under 
pseudonyms, many of vmich are 
adaptations from more famous 

Another technique for the paint- 
ers - a method more prevalent 
in Europe - consist of several 

artists gathering together and 
dohit one piece of work. In a 
still-life, one artist would Jo the 
decanter, one the oranges, etc. 
Word is that the mdividual artists 
become really quite proficient in 
theh- particular area.

"And we just found a great 
landscape pabiter. You'll luiow

that's a name to watch." 

"We aren't pretentious like 
some other galleries." 

He indicate which gallery he 
meant, but he'd just fhiished talk- 
hig about a similar, but some- 
what slicker operation, The 
Royal Gallery. 

Located on Sherbrooke Street 
just a few doors down from 
Schertle, the Royal . is a one- 
branch bperatim. 

Pictures there, as a dealer told 
us, "are always on sale." They 
have furniture price-tags hanghig 
from each pahiting, with the ori- 
ghial price crossed out and re- 
placed with a much lower one. 

The Royal started out seven 
years ago as "El Greco". It 
didn't have quite the same com- 
mercial tahit, then. But the own- 
er went bankrupt. When he re- 
opened he tried this new, apparent- 
ly successful, ploy.,

dimensional effect, each contabi

presshigly sad face palîited onto

for a flat $400. 

Dr. Max Stern, director of the 
Dominion Art GaUery, is also- 
bi the art business but the dif- 
ference between hhn and Mr. 
Cowie is more than just the few 
blocks separathig theh: galleries. 

Dr. Stern, a PhD in Art History, 
has never heard of any of the 
Royal or Schertle arUsts. He 
said, "Trash pahiting is a crime 
agamst the public. Parents buy 
it and put on theh: walls. Theh 
children by seehig it never learn 
the difference between good and 
bad art." 

On the fhiancial aspect of art, 
Mr. Cowie clahiis a pauithig only 
taWng one day to complete "is 
not worth $250, when a good exe- 
cutive only makes $500 week." 

"The price of pauitmgs will 
go down ui the next couple of 
years. They can't get any more 
expensive. Then where will those 
people be with theh $1000 pauit- 

Dr. Stem, an advisor to the 
National Gallery, is one art col- 
lector who doesn't think it's vulgar 
to talk about the investment 
value of pahituigs. 

"It is better to own a small ; 
diamond than a large piece of 
glass," he said,-. "The value bi- 
creases with thne." 

Pickmg up a small, exquisite 
Rodin sculptured head, he said,~ 
"Five years ago you could have 
bought this for $185, two years 
later it was was worth $400,' tôday 

"And that's much better than 
a trash pamting you couldn't give 
away five years from now."

Physics students yesterday met 
to organize for changes in thier 

Graduate student Richard Behr- 
man opened the meeting by ela- 
borating student grievances. These 
may be outlined as follows: 

• An introductory course which 
is hopelessly inadequate and un- 
suitable for the many general and 
arts students who take it; 

• A poorly-planned general 

program rcomposed mabily of 
majors counes which are often 
hrelevant to general student; 

• A major program which 
clacks coherence, the alms of 
which have not been made clear 
to students; 

• An honours program which 
lacks flexibility. There is room 
for only one half course outside 
the fidds of mathematics and 
phydcs. Math ' courses ' are al- 
gebre-oriented and thus are un-

suitable to the practical needs of 
physics students. The only ."de- 
cent" math course, Math'368/has 
been recommended for removal 
from the program. 

Students attending the meeting 
were invited to join committees, 
one of whicii has been set up to 
deal with each of these four pro- 
blem areas. 

The main thrust of the Sodety 
of Physics Students (SPS) as a 
whole will be to get a greater 
voice on the departmental Curri- 
culum Committee. There are now 
two student representatives on the 
twelve-man body, and these, 11 
was learned at the meeting, were 
elected by a total of 23 majors 
and honours students. The SPS 
would like eight representatives: 
three general students, two ma- 
jors, two honours and one gra- 
duate. This would give them 
parity with faculty. The would ako 
like meetings of the department 
as a whole to be open to at least 
some students. 

The SPS in the Qrst depart- 
mental action committee to be 
formed in science.

AtmMtae Ottawa U 105-42, beat Davis Y 84-73 

Redmen hoopsters tune up for Loyola bout 


Tuning up for two big games, 
coach Tom Mooney's basiœt- 
ball Kedmen played twice last 
week, winning easily both times. 
On Saturday, the team played its 
best game of the year, annihilat- 
ing Ottawa University 10549. 
And, on Tuesday they aroused 
thenoselves long enou^ to beat 
the Davis Y; 84-73. 

In Saturday's game, the Red- 
men began to looic lilce a team for 
the tint time this year. In the 
opening minuta,;^emjBrodeur 
fed center NâsIco^GoIoméev for 
Gve quicic baslcets. The other 
players got the hint, and Golo- 
meev showed what he can do if 
he gets the ball. After five min- 
utes, the Bulgùian giant had 18 
points, and the rout was on. 

Ottawa had no way of stopping 
Golomeev. In addition to scoring 
at will, Golomeev blocked numer- 
ous shots, and he controlled both 
backboards. This thoroughly de- 
moralized Ottawa who trailed 53- 
29 at the half. 

The second half featured fine 
defensive play by the Redmen who ' 
held the opposition to two foul 
shots in the Orst 12 minutes. 
With the score 84-37, Coach 
Mooney pulled what remained of 
his starting five, and the bench 
responded by continuing to out- 
score the outclassed Gee Gees. 

All ten playen scored for the 

Redmen. Theiy^W4^^^9^Go- 
lommfS^^wij^niot which 
ciin?'ln''me'1fisr*lSlf. Pierre 
Brodeur, who is be^nning to 
adjust to his role as playmaker, 
played his finest game of the year 
and came up with 22 points. Steve 
Fraid contributed 13, and Andy- 
Orris and Dave Leibson each had 

This was easily the most im- 
pressive game thus far. Everyone 
played w.ell, and their talents fi- 
nally began to mesh. The result 
was the obliteration of an Ot- 
tawa team which was made to 
look a lot worse than it really 
was. Ottawa was tied with the 
Redmen, and they had not per- 
mitted their opposition more than 
59 points in any game. 

On Tuesday night the Redmen 
played the Davis Yt in an exhibi- 
tion contest. The Y featured Ray 

Mischook, the popping cop, whom 
the Montreal Star, in a fit of 
idiocy, called "the best player 

Fans turned out in numbers 
(some guesses ranged as high as 
20) to see what the Redmen would 
do to stop the fabulous Mr. Mis- 
chook. It didn't take much. Pier- 
re Brodeur showed that he can 
play defense, as he 'blocked- six 
shots and held Mischook to seven 
points while he guarded him. 

The game itself was inconse- 

quential, and except for a couple 
of individual performances, is 
not worth talking about. Nasko 
Golomeev one agahi led the scor- 
ing parade with 35 points, 23 of 
which came in the second half.- 
Golomeev blocked a dozen shots, 
pulled down 15 rebounds, and in- 
.timidated the opposition when he 
felt like playing. He actually did 
have sometl^ng to sulk about, as 
he was hacked to ribbons in full 
view of the watching - throng and 
two comatose referees who re- 
fused to do anything about it. 

Brodeur, in addition to doing a 
One job on Mischook, came up 
vdth 20 points. Steve Ftaid and 
Sam Wimisner played solid 
games, scoring IS and 10 points 

The game was never in doubt. 
The Redmen burst into a 10-2 
lead, and the score was 45-31 
at . the half. Leading 82-S7>with 
six minutes to play. Coach Moo- 
ney sent in his subs. Doubtlessly, 
he was not pleased with what he 
saw, as the bench bumbled its 
way to a mere two pohits while 
giving up 16; 

The Redmen played without 
Dave Leibson, but be should be 
ready for the three games re- 
maining before Christnus. 

In the next week, the Redmen 
face the two toughest opponents 
on the regular season sdiedule. 

Redmen Hoops 

by Mike Boone 

Whether watching "Yo^" Go- 
lomeev pour in baskets or wait- 
ing for Pierre Brodeur to do 
something impressive, one' 
dwells ui blissful ignorance of 
Just how these two great players 
ended up at McGill. While Tom 
Mooney spent most of the sum- 
mer preparing for the success- 
ful football season recenUyjComrjj 
pleted. Brodeur and N3m^ 

Now everybody knows that log- 
ic, rationality and 'perception of 
absurdity do not spell Ara Par- 
seghian. This is where "Ni^t 
Train" runs,afo^^orhi|^m 
Mooney's ■•'èalsetto^^hrieiS^Ï^ 
"Get hungry, Fraid!" produce in 
Steve a psychological condition 
commonly known as "choking", 
an apt euphemism in that Fraid 
gets so keyed up that his abilities 
are throttled. 

Steve "Night Train" Fraid. It 
is high time Fraid received the 
fame and respect he so richly 
deserves. i : . 

"Night Train" has long beeii: 
known among the basketbali" 
freaks as the resident genius of 
the Redmen. Whether blowing an 
easy lay-up or engaging Coach 
Mooney in brilliant metaphysical 
debate, Fraid is a giant among 
mcnHis piercing wit and profound 
intellectuality have confounded 
Mooney's attempts to coach a 
little "hunger" into him. It's not 
that Fraid does not want to win. 
The problem is that his approach 
to life is based on logic and ra- 
tionality and that he perceives 


This year has been somewhat 
encouraging, however. Fraid 
'spent the summer whipping his' 
' Adonis-like body into terrific 
|8hape. He did this through a lot 
^of'^ running and pushing Capri 
pants in the family's downtown 
shmata emporium. He has found 
a new lease on life as a com- 
merce student. His play has been 
eqcouragbtg so far. His off- 
court bdiaviour has not changed. 

Fraid's personality is difficult 
to describe. He is constantly en- 
gaged in perpetrating the myth 
that he is related to the late 
Sigmund Freud, maintaining that 
the spelling was changed! because 
."Fraid" sells more clothes. 
Fiercely proud of his decrepit 
physique, Fraid is trying to suc- 
ceed Sheldon "the Jew" Zimmer 
as the team's leading nocturnal 
•point-scorer. An avid movie- 
goer, Fraid is the most intellec- 
tual of the Redmen, which is an- 
alogous to winning a beauty con- 
test in a leper colony. He is 
known throughout the province as 
the scourge of French-Canadian 
matrons on train trips. He is, 
in short, a man for all seasons 
and, occasionally, a basketball 
player in the winter. ~' . 

Tomorrow, the team takes on New 
Hampshire State College. This is 
the first meeting between the 
teams, but New Hampshire play- 
ed Loyola last year, and those 
who saw the game were impres- 
. sed by the all around play of the 
American squad. The pme is 
scheduled for 2:00 p.m. in the 
Currie Gym. 

On Tuesday, Dec. 17, the jock 
community social event of the 
year will take place as the Loyola 
Warriors come in to play the 
Redmen. Loyola, which is chock 
full of American imports, has 
been praised to the skies by the 
local press, and has just return- 
ed from an impressive showing 
in the Waterloo Invitational Tour- 

Loyola coach, Doug Daignauit, 
long known for his hyperbolic ut- 

terances, recçntly came out with 
"McGUl has nothing. We can 
beat them seven days a week." 
Off Saturday's showing, N. Go- 
lomeev and company may have 
somethbig to say about that. 

The game starts at 8:00 in the 
Currie Gym. The winner will be 
alone in first place in the Coupe 
de Quebec standings, and a win 
for the Redmen would probably 
vault them into a lofty position 
in the national rankinp. Any 
fans who want a preview of what 
is to come can drop in at Loyola 
tonight at 8:00 and see the War- 
riors play New Hampshire. 

After Loyola, the Redmen who 
are now 7-1, will close out the 
first half of the season with an 
exhibition game against the 
Montreal Orchids on Friday, the

NASKO'S PAL: Pierre Brodeur shov;n here eluding aging

games this week against the U of Ottawa and the Y as well 
as feeding Nasko Golomeev for a goodly 67 points in the 
two contests. 

Ruitet leads 'po/oisis 
to Hersihorn Trophy 

For the past five years waterpo- 
lo star Glen Ruiter has led his 
squad to many victories only to 
lose the Herschom Trophy to 
the Toronto Varsity Blues. In 
what may have been his final in- 
tercollegiate game last Saturday, 
Ruiter scored five limes in spar- 
king the Redmen to a 12-1 victo- 
ry over those same Blues. 

Gabi Zinner came up with ano- 
ther fine pme with three goals, 
while Andy Heap and Bill Tomlin 
"each scored twice. Don Carr got 
the only Toronto marker. 

Defensively, the Redmen ha- 
ve never looked better. Morty 
Yalovsky played one of his finest 
pmes ever while Bob Lantos 
aided him adequately. 

Before tlie start of the present 
season, coach Faoud Kamal was 

worried about the absence of a 
top goalie for the team. Larry Co- 
nachie and Bob Shultz had gra- 
duated and there didn't seem to 
bé anyone to take their places. 

Ron Ncsbltt has to be the sur- 
prise of the season with his fine 
play in nets. This was only his 
first year between the pipes but 
he played like a veteran througlt-' 
out. On . Saturday Nesbitt came 
up with another fine effort, stop- 
ping some difficult drives, in- 
cluding a penalty shot. 

Coach Kamal will have to co- 
me up with more players like 
Nesbitt next year when Andy 
Heap and Ruiter graduate, but 
with a nucleus of Zinner, Tom- 
lin, and Yalovsky, his team will 
still be the favourites to cop the 
OQAA championship once more.

Hockeymen bomb Ottawa Gee-Gees, 
succumb to Loyola Warriors, 4-1 

by Ian Urquhart 

"Maybe someday McGill will 
have a hockey team like that," 
mused coach Brian Gilmour after 
watching the Loyola Warriors 
whip his Redmen, 4-1, Tuesday 

Actually, the Redmen played 
their most solid pme of the sea- 
son at Loyola, but a recap of the 
game showed they had been out- 
shot, 39-22, and physically beaten 
by the brawny Warriors, as well 
as being outscored. The loss left 
the Redmen with two wins in five 
games in Coupe de Quebec com- 

Last Saturday, Gilmour's squad 
played a comparatively poor game 
against the hapless Ottawa Gco- 
Gees but won easily, 7-3, for the 
First Redmen victory on the Road, 
excluding trips over the mountain 
to U de M, sbice a win at Guelph 
in October, 1966. The Redmen 
are wont to play their worst ga- 
mes against mediocre competi- 
tion and, as a result, they now 
have only two wins in six pmes 
in the OQAA Eastern Section. ^ 

In the Loyola match, three play- 
ers kept the score close - de- 
fenceman Norm Chouhiard, goalie 
Norm Lord, and forward Jean 
Dupéré. . Chouinard contributed 
his usual display of skill at his 
left defence spot. On the ice for 
at least forty minutes against his 
team-mates of last year, he was 
the only defenceman capable of 
breaUrtg up the well-executed 
plays of the Warriors. In addi- 
tion, he led rushes out of his own 
end and engineered the power 

Lord played his best game as a 
Redman in goal. He stoppied 16 
shots without a miss in the score- 
less first period despite the han- 
dicap of a heavy cold. He proved 
to be human in the next two pe- 
riods but still looked awfully good. 

The play of right-wing Jean 
Dupéré, the Redmen's only con- 
sistently effective forward 
throu^out the game, was a plea- 
sant surprise for Gihnour. Du- 
péré has shown, since the start 
of the season, that he has all 
the equipment to be a top player - . 
great shot, good speed, and the 
necessary toughness, but he al- 
ways seemed to be in the wrong 
place at the wrong time. 

Then Gilmour moved Mike Sta- 
cey to centre on Dupéré's line in 
the Ottawa game to replace Skip- 
py Kemer, and the shift paid off 
almost Immediately. Kemer li- 
kes to carry the puck and Dupéré 
rarely saw the Uttle black thing 
with Skippy at centre; Stacey li- 
kes to pass off and that suits 
Dupéré fine. Tuesday, night he 
. was all over the ice, .Recking 
Warrior scoring ace Mikè" Lowe 
and booming his shot at goalie 
Brian Hughes. He Gnally beat 
Hugha with less than two minu- 
tes left in the game to prevent 
a shut-out. 

Lowe scored two goals for 
Loyola, but the first came be- 
cause of poor coverage by the 
Red defence in front of the net, 
and the second on a power play 

to ^ve Loyola a 2-0 lead in the 
second period. The Warriors ad- 
ded two more in the third period 
to clinch the game before Dupéré 

Lowe is a chippy player as 
well as a good player. Redmen 
sub-goalie Dave Craig taunted the 
talented forward when he fell in 
front of the McGill bench. Lowe's 
answer was a fist in Craig's 
face. Loyola coach Dave Draper 
jumped in to help his "defense- 
less" star and grabbed Craig. 
. Craig was cut in the mouth. 

The Warriors did more than 
beat up the Redmen's sub-goalie. 
Led by captain Chris Hayes, they 


wore down Gilmour's collection 
of dentists and lawyers with heavy 
bo(iy checks. , In the first period, 
Itiyes set the tone when he clob- 
bered Ken Ross, who usually dol- 
es out such punishment and Ross 
played the remainder of the game 
in a daze. 

Haye's line and Lowe's line 
are- complemented byva.hatchet 
trio of varying coihposition but 
constant function to give Loyob 
unusual depth for college compe- 
tition. Laval has similar 
strength. The two teams meet 
tonight in Québec City in a pme 
that- will decide which is number 
one in the province. Tonight's 
match is their only encounter this 

The Warriors will not improve 
much on Tuesday's performance. 
"We played wdl," commented 
Draper of his team. "It was 
a fantastic pme." Any game is 
fantastic if you win. 

At Ottawa Saturday, the Redmen 
could be excused for approaching 
the game lackadaisically. The 
Gee-Gees are the leape joke, 
whiless in five games and allow- 
ing abnost nine goals a game 
through the target they call a 
■goalie. In addition, their home 
rink is not even suitable for a 
Créditiste caucus. No seats, poor 
lighting, a tiny visitor's dress- 
ing room and a temperature _ten 
degrees colder than outside' all 
add up to an inhospitable atmos- 
phere for visiting teams. 

Accordingly, the Redmen play- 
ed only half a pme Saturday - 
the second half. For thirty ;ni- 

nutes, they fiddled around, obli- 
vious to the disaster a loss would 
entail and to the bawling-out they 
received from a usually more re- 
ticent Gilmour between the Qrst 
and second periods. Then, losing 
2-1, they suddenly woke up mid- 
way in the second period to score 
four goals in three minutes and 
walk away with a victory. Two 
more goals in the meaningless 
third iKriod and an Ottawa goal 
in the last five minutes made 
the final score 7-3. 

The Redmen showed three 
strong lines for the first time 
since the opening game apinst 
Sir George, although this strength 
could more correctly be attribut- 
ed to the ineptitude of the Gee- 
Gecs, further weakened by the 
schedule which had them play two 
pmes in 16 hours. They dropped 
a 5-2 decision Friday night to U 

Stacey, Dupéré and Doherty 
scored for the new first line, 
George Kemp and captah) Peter 
Burgess for the second line, and 
even Tim Kerripn and Jim Kina- 
han counted for the third Une. 

Although the development of 
Dupéré Into a definite offensive 
threat has got to help the Red- 
men, the deterioration of the play 
of scoring leader Kemp is distur- 
bing. Like Dupéré, Kemp needs 
the puck a lot to be most effecti- 
ve, and perhaps he is not getting 
the pack enough with Kerner as 
at centre, too, and his poor play 
can only be blamed on himself. 
He handled the puck often at 
Loyola but never made it past the 
Warriors defence. Hopefully, he 
is just in a slump and will re- 

turn to form after the Christmas 

SLAP SHOTS: Despite his 
slump, Kemp is only two points 
behind Laval's Jean Rioux in the 
Eastern scoring race; Rioux has 
11 points, Kemp nine... The Red- 
men face Boston' College in Bos- 
ton December 27. BC was a se- 
mi-finalist in the NCAA play- 

offs last year, losing to Denver, 
the eventual champion. Unlike 
most good American college hoc- 
key teams, BC has no Canadian 
imports... From January 3-5 the 
Redmen will compete in the eight 
lean Loyola CoUege.Toumament, 
which also' 'Includes Boston Col- 
lege.., The next OQAA pnie is 
.January 15 at U deM. 

JEAN DUPERE: The Redmen winger has been an excit- 
ing performer in recent games. He notched the only Red 
and White tally in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Loyola War- 

Redmen Hockey 

by Murray Segal 

Where are the hockey Redmen headed? Rookie 
coach Brian Gilmour's team close their pre^^hrist- 
mas schedule with a record of two wins and four 
losses in OQAA eastern divisional play for a share 
of third place m the six team loop. The Redmen 
split two exhibition games which counted towards 
the nebulous Coupe de Québec, defeating the Geor- 
gians 64 in an early season tilt, while dropping a 
4-1 decision to the Loyola Warriors in thdr last 
outing before the holiday break. 

Inconsistency has highlighted Redmen shinny ac- 
tion hi the first half of the season, however behind 
the inconsistent inconsistency looms, yes, of all 
thinp, potential. The Redmen have met all five 
members of their division on at least one occasion 
this season. Perhaps it would be worthwhile to ana- 
lyze these meetings in the hope such information 
may enlighten all of us reprding second half play. 

In theh- first whiff of OQAA competition, the 
Redmen were upset 84 by a raunchy Queen's squad 
in Kingston. The Redmen oulshot the Gaels by a 
two to one ratio but Dave Craig's netminding did not 
compliment the play of the other fifteen members of 
his team. 

The Red and White then dropped a 74 contest to 
the front-running Laval Rouge et Or in tlie capiul 
city. Coach Gilmour replaced netminder Craig 
with Norm Lord, a law student new to McGill. In 

their next outing, the Redmen edged the second 
place U de-M équipe 4-2 but went on to lose to a 
mediocre Carleton by an ugly 8-2 score. 

Ill thé second niëetlng of thé season, Laval ni pped 
Gihnour's squad 4-2 in a very tight ballgame. But 
the Redmen rebounded to defeat the hopeless Otta- 
wa Gee-Gee's 7-3. The Redmen played very well in 
their disappointing two and four record, of defeat- 
ing anyone in the division with the possible excep- 
tion of pomrful Laval. V 

Patoips it is wishful thinking to say the Red and 
White will attach themselves two the second and fi- 
nal playoff position in the eastern division. 

Undoubtedly the quaUty of Redmen play in the 
second half will be determined by Brian Gilmour's 
ability to motivate his team. 

If the Redmen can skate with provincial and na-' 
tional powers such as Loyola, Laval, and U de M, 
certainly the potential is there. One understands 
Gihnour's desperate thh-d line situation. But the 
does possess an adequate goaltender, son-e capable 
rearguards and six or seven talented forwards. 

In recent pmes the Mike Stacey-Brit Doherty- 
Jean Dupéré line has emerged to fill the void t'^uscd 
by the poor play of the Skip Kemer-George Ktmp- 
Pete Burgess trio. If both units could produce t'- 
multancously instead of this sec-saw pattern of in- 
consistency by the two lines, then second place 
would be a very practical goal.
