Five years for a degree? 



Councillors fail 
to materialize 

by HILARY WASS 

The first snow-fall of the year has frozen even Students. Council; 
last night.s meeting didjioUiuterialize due to lack of a quoruin.;^.:^ • 

Of the twentynône'voÛng'mèiTilxirs, only nine were présent at the 
time the meeting was a adjourned, five short of a quorum. 

Although E^xtemal Vice-President Ian Hyman pointed out that 
some of the councilloR who were not present had telephoned to apo- 
logize or say they would be delayed, Internal Vice-President Peter 
Foster was not as lenient. 

"It is unfortunate that certain of the representatives of the small- 
er faculties'dld not see fit to show up taassuniie their responsibili- 
ties," he said. "The burden of the operation of the Students' Society 
falb on the shoulders of the representatives of the large faculties, 
and the Executive." 

The President of the Students' Society, Robert Hajaly, also ex- 
pressed bis dissatisfaction with the present Council .

The possibility of a five-year 
undergraduate program for 
freshmen entering IVIcGill next 
September looms large after 
weekend meetings between' mem- 
bers of a McGill ad hoc Com- 
mittee on CEGEP's and the Que- 
bec government. 

At the Quebec meeting, the six- 
man McGill group, appointed by 
the Principal three weeks ago, 
proposed the following "package 
deal" to the govémment: 

• that McGill would register 
freshmen entering in 1969 in a 
five-year undergraduate program 
(the first two years of this pro- 
gram would be similar to. but not 
exactly the same as. the CEGEP 
curriculum, since McGiil' would 
insist on retaining control of the 
curriculum and exams of its own 
students) : 

• that the Faculty of Educa- 
tion will move onto the McGill 



CEGEPs boil again 



The CEGEP crisis is heating^ 
up again.' Repressive adminis- 
trative action at the Chicoutimi 
CEGEP has touched off a renew- 
al of student demands in several 
colleges and the possibility of 
more direct action. I, • . 
■ Students at Jonquiëre CEGEP 
have occupied their college in 
sympathy. Local residents are 
worried that the rebirth of the 
CEGEP crisis is in some way 
connected with the stealing of 150 
sticks of dynamite from a woric 
site. 

Protesting against the expul-. 
slon of seven students, Chicou- 
timi students demonstrated in- 
side their school Monday, break- 
ing windows, forcing doors, and 
painting walls. The Chicoutimi 
administration held an extraor- 
dinary meeting Tuesday and 
decided to suspend classes in- 
definitely because of "a climate 
unfavourable to the pursuit of 
studies". Education Minister 
Jean-Guy Cardinal approved 
their action In a statement be- 
fore the parliamentary education 
committee. 

A meeting at Lionel Groubc 
CEGEP in Ste. Thérèse resulted 
in the issuing of a three-point ul- 
timatum demanding: 

• remission to the student so- 
ciety of fees collected by the ad- 
ministration;^ 

• alwlfiim^> of the absentee 
controliystem; 



r^' The Lionel . Groubc adminis- 
tration is on the brink of closings 
the school but hesitates because 
it does not feel the dissaUsfied 
studen^ are ,in a majority posi- 
tion. • - - 

At CEGEP Saint-Laurent, a 
meeting of 600 students voted 



yesterday by a majority of 75 to 
continue "study" sessions" today 
to discuss the events at Chicou- 
timi and to consider the basis 
for student demands for educa- 
tional reform. However, because 
.of^^ithéT close vote, students will 
vbte'a^n today. 



campus from Macdonald College 
. in the fall of 1970: 

• that this move, by freeing 
some space at Macdonald. would 
enable McGill to lease room on a 
short term basis at ' Macdonald 
to an independent CEGEP. 

For this timetable to be 
followed, the projected Educa- 
tion building would have to be 
ready for students by fall 1970. 
The building; now being consider- 
ed by the Development Committee, 
will sit on upper McTayish. and 
will be the size of the Leacock 
Building. ^^É te 

At the weekend meetinglDwni 
the government and the McGiil 
representatives expressed the 
hope that final -approval of the 
funds would come by this De- 
cember. 

The McGill delegation also 
proposed that there be.no tuition 
fees for the CEGEP-lever stu- 
dents entering in 1969. If the 
government comes through with 
about $1.100 per student (as it 
does with the tuition - free 
French-language CEGEPs now 
in operation), then there will be 
no fees. If the government comes 
through with less, then the re- 
mainder will have to be made up 
in fees. 

If the whole plan comes off as 
anticipated, it would mean that 
McGill would, in effect, get no 
freshman ~ class . in AVtQ^r- Ins- 
tead; room for the freshman claû 
would be taken up by the 'new 
blood' from Macdonald. • 



Also, since McGill is only ac- 
cepting one batch of CEGEP 
level students. McGill would 
have a three-year undergraduate 
program beginning in 1971. This 
would come after two years of 
CEGEP training. 

The whole English-language 
CEGEP (for. College d'Enseigne- 
ment Générale et Professionnelle) 
mess dates back to Alphonse- 
Marie Parent and his Parent 
Report, delivered in 1964. 

At that time, the Report re- 
commended that the government 
.install a system of "institutes" 
(ie CEGEPs) between high schools 
and - universities. These institu- 
tes were to have been about 
307o academic and about 70% 
technical. 

The government went ahead 
with the French-language C& 
GEPs in 1966. but it turned out 
that there were only about 3G7o 
technical students (who now can't 
find' jobs) and the rest were 
academic (who can't find places 
in university). These were two 
of the reasons that the CEGEPs 
rebelled eariier this fall. 

So much for the government's 
handling of the French side. 

The English side began when 
Dr. H. Rocke Robertson, the 
Principal and Vice-Chanceilor 
of this institution, issued a sta- 
tement at the beginning of 1965 
promising to "co-operate in 
every way" with the government

Power must be collective 

UGEQ president quits 



Paul Bourbeau yesterday re- 
signed as president of l'Union Gé- 
nérale des Etudiants du Québec, 
following the advice of the UGEQ ' 
executive. 

Bourbeau released a lengthy 
statement in which he claimed 
that UGEQ's constitution grants 
too many powers to its president. 
He refused to be the "official 
representative," and the "prin- 
cipal responsible", of the union 
as the constitution defines its 
president. 

He maintained that the direct- 
ion of UGEQ must be "a collect- 
ive effort" and that it was absurd 
that the entire membership should 
be placed "under the personal 
jurisdiction of a single person". 

Bourbeau, signing the state- 
ment" Paul Bourbeau. member 
of the Executive Committee who 
happens to be President" wrote 



that "It has -become impossible 
to' nU a post in which I no longer 
believe, and I resign as President, 
member of the Executive Com- 
mittee, and member of the Con- 
seil Central National of UGEQ". 

Bourbeau bases his attitude on 
his interpretation of the evolu- 
tion of the Québec student move- 
ment, which he sees as placing 
UGEQ . in a revolutionary situa- 
tion,^and fordng-it to institute a 
radical restrucitinng of its orga- 
nization. 

"The student - worker move- 
ment exists" he writes, "but it 
must be expanded.and intensified. 
Therefore it has become urgent 
to rethink the; traditional, struct- ' 
ures of power within the student 
movement, such as the presidency, 
the executive, and the conseil 
central national." 

"The time has come for us to 



reject the individualistic concept 
of authority and to stop playing 
the consumer corporations' 
pme which requires its super- 
men (Kennedy, Trudeau, etc.) Ra- 



dical transformation has alwayf 
been a collective process, even 
though bourgeois history attempts 
to prove the opposite."

HEMISPHERIC CONFERENCE 
TO END THE WAR IN VIET NAM 

A Hemispheric Conference to End the War In Viet Nam. will 
be held in Montreal from November 28 to December 1. 1968. The 
conference has received support from such people as Dr. Benja- 
min Spock, Rev. Bernard Lafayette, organizer of the Poor People's 
Campaign, and Professor Robert Greenblatt. co-chairman of the 
National Mobilization Committee. 

Speeches will be. delivered by Rabbi|Abraham L. Feinberg. 
David Dellinger. and Mr. Cheddi Jagan^IeadS^of , the opposition 
in the Parliament of Guyana. 

The topics which will be discussed include A Social Organiza- 
tion in Viet Nam. the Theory of Violence and Vietnam, and Disar- 
mament and Vietnam. The major feature of the conference will be 
an exchange of ideas and experiences, which it is hoped will take 
place during the workshops. 

Several hundred delegates from Latin America will be given 
priority in speaking and other forms of participation because of the 
distance they must travel. . 

Approximately two thousand people are expected, "a thousand 
from the States, and the rest from Canada.

UNB policé 



FREDERICTON (CUP) - An 
adminislrallon decision to use 
city police to quietly end a 
bothenome 48Klay sit-in at the 
University . of New Brunswick 
has noisily backfired. 

The ' Strax affair, almost 
dead for three weeks now. was 
suddenly revived after the ar- 
rest or* seven protestors in 
Liberation 130 early Sunday 
morning. . 

Within 48 hours of the police 
action: 

• the student council at 
UNB strongly condemned the 
use of police . 

• a group of protestors sat 
in at a city police station and 
demanded they too be arrested 

• a conference of students 
from universities and colleges 
in the province announced plans 
to switch the location of its 
session this weekend from the 
UNB campus to protest the' 
presence of police at the unl-^ 
versity 

• two keynote speakers 
scheduled to. address a mariti- 
me history symposium at 
UNB this weekèïid-^hâve re- 
fused to speak on campus and 
may force cancellation of the 
whole affair. 

While all this was happening, 
the seven appeared in magis- 
trate's court Tuesday mor- 
ning and pleaded not guilty to 
a charge of public mischief. 
All were released on their own 
recognizance. ' And separate 
trials were set to begin De- 
cember 10. 

TJioy pleaded after their 
lavvTcr. James D. Harper of 
Frcdericton. failed to have the 
charges dismissed on /Pgjg^ 
durai grounds. Harpér^îÎOTîT

sity was in fact public proper-

Five months and two tho^aiid

agency formed this summer to act 
as an intermediate between so- 
' cicty and the hippies, is in des- 
perate trouble. . • • 
^''--Concordia Estates, which owns 
the St. Famille headquarters of 
Contact, want the people out. 

According to Dave Cobb, head 
of the organization, the police are 
pressuring Concordia to evict him. 
The police say you have to have a 
perniit to operate a. social agency, 
and Contact has not been granted 
one. At present Cobb' is" negotla^ 
ting with the University Settle- 
ment, which has such a license. 
K) take Cnnlact under its iicRls. 

The latest police move follows 
a summer of . harrassmcnt and 
arrests of hippiSj^hp used Con- 
tact. Even theTicad?"of the orga- 
nization were arrested. 

Wanants were issued this sum- 
mer for Cobb and another found- 
er, Jean Nantel and the police, on 
orders from Mayor Drapeau, 
waged an effective terror campaign 



to drive hippies: out of town and. 
preserve the Intepity of the city. 

City Hair envisioned hordes of 
hippies from all over North Amer- 
ica descending on Montreal, ruin- 
ing the image of "Expo Gty". 
cluttering up the parks, strolling 
on >^the: streets. The horde, never 
'materialized, but hundreds of kids 
were picked up, detained, then 
released without charges placed 
against them. 

About two thousand people have 
made use of Contact - everyone 
from dnift|i^ist|;i^|gisuburban 
runaways ••S^HÎcliîprovides free 
accomm(Kl;itions in the city or at a- 
farm near St. Adolphe, There is 
also a free medical clinic, staffed 
l)y (lociors frimi the Children's 
and Royal .Victoria Hospitals. 
^But ..theplease^problem and a 
sudden lack bf interest on the part 
of the public in the problem, have 
drastically curtailed Contact's 
activities. Grants, like that from 
Youth Emergency Service, a civil 
liberties group formed over the 
summer, are not materializing, 
and local service clubs arc re- 
luclanl to contribute. 

The telephone has been cut off 
and there is no food. A job co-op, 
formed in August has folded.

ty. Justice Lloyd '. B. Smith 
denied the plea for dismissal. 

The UNB student council, 
not at all vocal during the 
seven week protest, ~ called thé 
police action "unprecedented, 
violent and oppressive" in a 
letter sent to administration 
president Colin B. MacKay; 

Tlie students said they could 
not. condone "totalitarian tac- 

' tira "r^jas.^; part of the regular 
administriitivè routine" aiid 
affirmed the "right of students 
to disagree with the policies 
and opinions of. the board of 
governors." ; The council then 
demanded the university drop 
charges against those arrested. . - 

On Tuesday afterhbonT ad- ' 
ministratioti officiais called a 
press conference to present 
their case. Dugald Blue, uni- 
versity registrar, presented a 
statement explainhig the process 

;.j^y,whiGh the cops were called. 

&r Blue -watched the bust Sun- 
day morning. 

He said the decision had 
been made November 1 on the 
advice of the Board of Deans. 
He said student possession of 
building keys had been one of 
the reasons for the eviction 
but admitted nothing had been 
broken into or taken. He said 
the administration would have 
to "considerl" whether any 
action would be taken against 
engineering and commerce 
students wiio participated in 
raids against Liberation 130 
and caused extensive damage. 

On Monday! 24 protestors,- 
including Dr. Norman Strax, 
picketed memorial services at 
the Frcdericton Cenotaph. One 
placard they carried read: 
"Was their fight for democracy 
in vain? " The demonstration 
was in support of the seven 
arrested. 

They ttien marched to city 
hall and sang "Wc shall over- 
come" before moving on to

students and Strax were al- 
lowed into the cell . block to 
visit the seven and once in, 
they promptly demanded to be 
arrested. When police refused.

list ' Of '150 names to the cops, 
all names of people involved 
at one time or another in the 
Liberation 130 occupation and 
all requesting arrest. 

Frcdericton . police chief 
Brycc Neely told them to tell 
it to the judge and refused to 
arrest them unless ordered to 
do so by said judge. He then 
had his men carry the protes- 
torsoutof the station.

of "the -'Actions Conferencje.j^aj;

dents scheduled for this week-

U of T march 
to legislature 

TORONTO (CUP) - Over 200 

University of Toronto students, 
upset by government delays in 
handling student financial grie- 
vances, will March on the prov- 
incial legislature Wednesday to 
demand changes in* the Ontario 
Student Awards Program. ' 

A student council committee 
has been meeting since mid- 
September compiling complaints 
from students caught in a tighten- 
ing of OSAP. regulations this 
ye.ir.- 

They have presented two briefs 
to the Ministry of University Af- 
fairs calling for a more liberal 
program, but have received no 
reply. 

The students are asking for: 

• presentation by the Depart- 
ment of an overall plan for the 
achievement of universal acces- 
sibility. 

• revision of the "independent 
status" clause, which set string- 
ent definitions for the attain- 
ment of "independent" status 

• a larger proportion of 
grants as opposed to loans 

• a change in the policy of 
student contributions which re- 
quires a given amount of student 
savings to supplement vthe loan 
or grant 

Steve Langdon. student presi- 
dent, said yesterday all univer- 
sity registrars and aid officers 
in the province have requested 
changes in the restrictive pro- 
gram. 

"They haven't receivçjd- any 
[espouse , from the Department 
either" he said. 

Langdon accused the Depart- 
ment of manipulating public opi- 
nion against the students: "We 
constantly read. . . of isolated 
cases of students cheating in ap- 
plying for their loans. But we 
never read about the large num- 
ber of students who can't con- 
tinue their education bet^iuse of 
the restrictive nature of the pro- 
gram." 

The Toronto students will at- 
tempt to gain support from other 
schools in the province equally 
hard hit by the OSAP regula- 
tions. 



The success that failed 



by VICTOR RABINOVITOf^^t 

Soecial to Canadian Umversitv Press' " 

à| à |LONDON. Eng. -- .The liuge a^ de- 
imoimratibh held here two'weeks agol'tlic largest ever 
organized in Britain, was a failure. Of this there can 
be no doubt. But whether this was failure of the radic- 
als or a failure of the British press - and, indeed the 
English parliamentary system - is what many politic- 
al groups are asking themselves today. 

In certain ways the demonstration was actually 
a remarkable success. The crowd turnout was more 
than three times larger than that predicted by the 
'police. The participants came from all part^ of Great 
Britain, including large delegations from distant pla- 
ces like Edinburgh, Scotland. And, above all, the 
marchers were generally peaceful. 

Yet the 100.000 people who massed togeth^pol 
London have failed to provoke even the slight^^^ 



bate around the government's tacit support of the 

Americans. 

Actually, the marchers were doomed to failure 
weeks before the demonstration took place. The 
responsibility for this lies yery much on the should- 
ers of the commercial British press. 

Ever since the first announcement of the Octo- 
ber 27 Solidarity March, the press seized on every 
opportunity to publish rumours about takeover at- 
tempts and insurrection being organized by radic-

4 McGILL DAILY 



ÎURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14th. 1968 



The instant solution 



At the October 31 meeting of Senate a 
report on McGill and the English-speaking 
CEGEPs was introduced by Academic Vice 
Principal Michael Oliver and tabled because 
senators' had not had enough time to consider 
it. The report is a brief excursion into the 
tangled history of the reports, meetings and 
committees that have constituted the prepa- 
ration for the creation of the first English 
CEGEP, scheduled for next September. It main- 
tains that "McGill has always been prepared 
to assist in planning or in implementing sche- 
mes for the establishment of CEGEPs..." and 
"McGill has consistently backed the concept 
of the CEGEP." ' . 

As the Daily pointed out last month, the 
Administration's support for the setting up of 
CEGEPs has been somewhat less unequivocal 
than they would hf^^|fêiieve. It has never 
accepted one of the{Hp|important implica- 
tions of the CEGEP system - the end of pri- 
vileged status for the English-language uni- 
versities." ' 

The question of what McGill should do 
during the transitional period while CEGEPs 
are^.being set up has led to major conflicts 
witHm^tii^ Administration, In September. 1967. 
James Whitelaw, governmènt^consultant on 
English-speaking CEGEPs, proposed that the 
English universities offer. CEGEP courses 
during this period. The initial response from 
McGill was favorable., and the proposal gra- 
dually gained wide acceptance among CEGEP 
planners. 

Meanwhile, however. McGill's enthusiasm 
for the idea cooled. First, it insisted on main- 
taining full control over curriculum. And se- 
cond, an alternative plan to continue offering 
a four-year program began to gain support 
among administrators and faculty. On May^lO;^ 



the Faculty of: Arts and Science rejected the 
Wliitelaw propo.sal and accepted the four-year 
idea instead. On October 17. the Board of Di- 
rectors of the new CEGEP was for.cèd to ac- 
cept the four-year plan because of McGill's 
position. And the report tabled in Senate only 
two weeks ago found major difficulties with 
the Whitelaw proposal and .suggested that the 
government set up yet another committee. 
This was a proposal McGill had made before 
and it had been widely interpreted as a delay- 
ing tactic. 

Now. however, everything has changed. 
All of a sudden. McGill is willing jOggffer 
CEGEP-level courses on campus: tnefcmri- 
culum will be similar to but not nece.ssarily 
the same as. that of an independent CEGEP 

. to' be established .si^^ off campus. 

The difficûltiëMhaPwwe pressing for so 
long no longer matter. 

Just what has happened is far from clear. 
The Administration's new position is far from 
a complete reversal: there is no indication that 
McGill is willing to loosen its stranglehold on 
CEGEP-level education. But its rather obvious 
attempt to prevent an English-speaking CE- 
GEP from- opening in 1969 appears to have 
been abandoned. 

In August. Frank McLaughlin. Chairman 
of the Board of the new CEGEP, said "It is 
now impossible to have a .satisfactory CEGEP 
for 1969. It will be done, but it will be done- 
badly." The administration's instant .solution 
doesn't change that. The now obsolete report 
is scheduled to come up at the next Senate 
meeting. The opportunity should be used for a 
full investigation of the CEGEP question: the 
whole byzantine mess remains a prime exam- 
ple of how things should not'b'^dôjieW''^^Â.- "

LETTERS 



. Give us 
the facts 

sir. 

Your editorial attack on Profenor Bre- 
chcr was unjustincd. Perhaps you did not 
attend the Bcatty lecture series? If you did 
not. your criticism is bom of ignorance: If 
you did, it Is rather of stupidity. 

I believe that Prof^or Brcchcr tried 
to make a distinction between the ''free and 
full expression of ideas" and "scholarship 
and scientinc analysis". The two arc not 
necessarily synonymous, and in Han Suyin's 
case they were scarcely at all. Her talks 
were based entirely on Communist Chinese 
Ideology, (and In that sense the' lectures 
were of value). 

However, her sclenUfic analysis fell 
markedly short. When empirical evidence 
was substituted for wishful thinking it was 
usually distorted. For example, it was sug- 
gested that tile world is faced with under- 
population rather than .overpopulation. As 
proof, the low densities of Brazil and even 
western China were cited. But did Han Suyin 
mention that Brazil Is mostly jungle and 
western China semi-desert? If she really 
wanted to prove her point she could have put 
forward the intriguing fact deduced by some 
mathematician of trivia thatalll'the worid's 
populaUon could be piled int q^fmlume of 



one.half mile cubed. Then surely the world 
would be lindcrpopulated! r 

Scientinc analysis was.aUo fonaken for 
apologies. China has apparently ho'd^irc to 
expand, bdt merely to preserve its own ter- 
ritorial independence. Tibet and the Indian 
border dispute were dismissed in face of the 
historical evidence that for many centuries 
China has tried to and succeeded in extend- 
ing its cultural superiority , over Its neigh- 
bours. But. then of course. Han SuyIn does 
not see the contradiction in her subsequent 
advocacy of Chinese support in struggles of 
national liberation. 

Is this, even by the Daily's loose defini- 
tion, good scholarship? Obviously not when 
fact has to be tailored to ideology.

< The lock 
onthèdoor 

Sir, 

In my opinion the funcUoii.of a respon- 
sible student newspaper Is to air the views 
of students on such matters as politics, 
courses and alleged injustices. It is con- 
cerning the latter that I write. 

As many students know the door to the 
Physical Sciences Centre on University St. 
is kept locked with the alleged purpose of 
prevenUng Montreal High students from 
using the PSC as a thoroughfare to the 
Union. I feel that as a student who will be 
contributing Î2800 or more to, McGill Uni- 
versity during my stay here I have a right 
to be able to. use the main entrance to Uie 
building since four out of my five classes 



arc held there. However, when I tried to 
%&i a key I was told only grad students and 
professors or "special cases" are allowed 
to obtain keys. When I pleaded my case to 
a staff member who does have a key, it 
was implied that I could not be trusted to 
have one. 

Since when are grad students, profs and 
special cases more honest than undergrads 
' and since wKe nranfaMcG ill . students pena- 
lized by the âcQoWFrèw MHS students? 
I would appreciate hearing other views on 
tills matter.

.Daily exploiting 
Companies 



Where has 
November 
gone? 

To West Lafayette Indiana 47907. , 
■ Yesterday the Daily received "a letter 

requesting help from the staff of the Ex- 
ponent, student newspaper at Purdue Uni- 
versity in Lafayette. 

A couple of excerpts speak for them- 
selves: 

"We haveJon;qur^ hands the same crisis 
you people Kad''*lâst year. We printed a 
poem which the Administration considered 
obscene and fired the editor etc... Inasmuch 
as it's quite apparent you have no mono- 
poly on ossified minds in your Adminis- 
tration, could you possibly send us copies of 
last year's Dailies that relate to . the^crisis 
so that we can anticipate whàt'bùr Neander- 
thals will come out with?" 

The title of the offending poem is "Tlie 
West Campus Rally for Student Enlighte- 
ment" by one Hank Childers (Lafayette 
does not seem to be any teeming nook of 
b;irils cither...! 

"A girl with long hair came running 

FYom the crowd 

Taking off her elothes 

Masturbating to the tune of 

'It's a long dry road from Palestine to 
Thief River Falls.' 

Grabbing my balls crying Love. 

Love! Love! Love! Love!" 

The poésie seems to lack some of the 
epic dimensions of Boll Weevils. One . 
speculates that if this piece shook Purdue, 
Boll Weevils would likely bring all Indiana 
crumbling down. 

In any case, the Purdue Administration, 
In the name of one Donald R. Mallett (Exe- 
cutive Dean and Vice President for. Stu- 
dent Services - they're ahead of us on ti- 
tles) inimedintL'lv fired i-ditor Wiilhim 
Smoot for "Uie continued use... of certain 
words or the definitive use of certain words 
which are considered inappropriate In 
responsible newspapers." He was undoubt- 
edly referring to the crass and gratuitous 
repeUtion of the four-letter word "Love". 

Mallet's statement goes on to point out 
such words... are not found in the Louis- 
ville Courier-Journal, Kansas City Star, 
or any other respected newspaper." What 
about tlio" New Orleans Tmics - Picavune 
and other leading exponents of the fourth 
estate? 

Mr. Smoot has refused to relinquish his 
position, and the Exponent staff conUnues 
to publish the journal. 

Perhaps iiynemoiy^f his own spectacul- 
ar back-tchMie:BibI^ci|last year, and In.

Sir. 

The juxtaposition of the Noranda Group 
of Companies ad and your mock ad editorial 
once again displayed in full the hypocrisy 

. which is your paper's main virtue. While 
.you steadily knock companies since they 
are interested in operating with a profit 
(derived from certain operations which you 
find "immoral"), at the same time you 
fail to show any discrimination whatsoever 
as far as the various advertisers who are 
willing to pay to .hayc their ads placed In 

. ydtir medlunfi is concerned. 

In other words, it's perfectly all right 
for the Daily to make money from a com- 
pany wlio.sc only accomplishment by your 
own version i.s that it "exploited Quebec" 



fruit. 



MarkSTAROWICZ 



as well as It could, but it's not O.K*fôrl 
McGill to receive research funds from 
such a corporation or for a graduate en- 
gineer to seek employment with it. 

Your action of accepting money from the 
advertiser and then, once his back is turn- 
ed, to stab him with a juvenile editorial, 
is morally reprehensible. I. and many of 
my colleagues, would appreaciate if you 
would clarify the reasoning, if. there is any, 
behind the actions. Or. was* all this in the

McGILL DAILY 5' 



The two faces of Hell 



Not so bady but there are 
blTt^^Hings 



Sir. 

I feci compelled to comment on Rick Levy's article 
as appeared in the Daily of November 11. 1 also challen- 
ge Mr. Levy to deny the following statements. 

Firstly, Rick Levy, the author of the article, under- 
went the entire hoirible ordeal without making any com- 
plaint or objection. In fact, he enjoyed it so mudi^that^ 
after being given about a week to recuperate, he'dêcid«l' 
to join the fraternity, at an expense of well over one hun- 
dred dollars. In fact, he was so proud of his membership 
that he invited his father to the banquet which celebra- 
ted his initiation. 

Secondly, the peison who organized and ran 'Hell 
Weekend' was voted by Rick Levy's pledge class, which 
underwent the ordeal, as the 'best brother' of the year. . 
They indeed admired his character and friendship; Now, 
Fra Levy, do the victims of the Nazis admire Hitler? 

Thirdly, when I underwent Hell Weekend, which lasts 
for IV^ days and not four as Levy claims, I had smoked 
meat, french fries and a coke and not 1 cold hot dog. I 
also slept for at least 9-10 hours (which Is about nor- 
mal for otUy days). In fact, Mr. Levy, if he thinks 
back will remember that he had a little too much to drink 
one night and slept for a lot more than four hours. 

Fourthly, there is no one in Sigma Alpha Mu who 
would at aU condone any type of physical or moral hard- 
ships. It is against our fraternity and officially and for- 
mally outlawed by our constitution. 

In summary, Mr.. Levy, you have grossly and unjus- 
tly insulted many fine people, people who respected you 
and your wishes to quit the fraternity after pledging that 
you would support it for four years. Still I respected 
your choice. You have also broken a pledge not to reveal- 
the 'happenings' of Hell Weekend - you broke this pledge; ' 
also, although theoretically what you recall as the events 
are so distorted that in reality what actually does go on 
is still secret -'-U:^^-'^;-- ■-':'}■'■:■' 

I do not think Hell Weekend serves any ireal value 
and I opted for its abolishment several times - not be- 
cause it is bad but only because more worthwhile things 
can be accomplished (like collecting $1,000 for cancer 
research which the Sammies accomplished). 

However, if you want to criticize something, why 
don't you tell it like it is? 

V , _ . , , L. N. Klar, 

. . •■ ' .BCL2 



Mr. Levy replies: 

The presence of Lew Klar was one of the reasons 
why I originally decided to pledge for Sigma Alpha Mu. 
I always thought him a warm, humane person, and 1 
respected him for his personal qualities and his aca- 
demic success in Honours Sociology. It is true that 
every year as- Hell Weekend rolled around, Mr. Klar 
would condemn the practice and urge its abolition, 
something one would naturally expect from a student 
honoring in Sociology and one as sincere as Mr. Klar. 

However, since the time Mr. Klar has given me 
reason to doubt that sincerity. His letter nudged to life 
an old bitter memory that I would have rather let die. 
It was Mr. Klar, former honours student in Sociology 
and now BCL 2, who acted as prosecuting attorney 
while the pledges were forced to grovel on their knees 
in front of the Inquisitor and confess their crimes. And 
yet he "opted for its abolishment several times". Per- 
haps the metamorphosis from Sociology to Law was 
already in progress. 

But it is when he says that "no one in Sigma Alpha 
Mu would at all condone any type of physical or moral 
hardships. . . It is against our constitution" that Mr. . 
Klar really strains our credulity. Was the mustard 
smearing a mirage; were the back-breaking meditation 
periods only a bad dream; and the shackled jaunts 
around town, the water in all the respiratory passages, 
the intense spotlight, and the jabs In the back, were 
these only hapless hallucinations? 

Either that (Mr. Klar does not deny these events) 
or I must conclude that Hell Weekend was not only un- 
necessary but illegal as well. Which might explain why 
although the behavior of the brothcrs made clear to us 
the clandestine quality of Hell Weekend, we were never 
made to take a formal oath. And even if we had. I would 
have had no quahns in breaking such an oath. It is a 
misguided sense of honor that asks me to keep mum in 
order to allow the pledges to undergo the hush-hush or- 
deal, without any indication of the humiliation which they 
will have to suffer. Paranoia-inducing lies are their pre- 
paration. 

As Mr. Klar indicated; "four days" was indeed a 
misprint The article however, made it quite clear that 
the ordeal began Friday night and ended Sunday evening. 

That's two and a half days. But the description of the 
amount of food I was given to cat was definitely not a 
misprint. A former pledge, whom I spoke to last night, 
confhined this, except that he was given a glass of 
milk which I was not - 



Mr. Klar is also correct in saying that I received 
more than the four hours of sleep alloted to the other 
pledges. As stated in the article, the liquor which I 
consumed on an empty stomach caused me to become 
extremely sick and the brothers kindly allowed me time 
to recover. I only vrish their humanity could have been 
awakened earlksr to shame them for planning to put us 
through the whole stupid ordeal in the first place. Since 
my sickness and amount of sleep were an aberration, 
and not the rule I chose to desoibe the experience of 
the overwhebning majority of pledges, who only received 
the four hours I described. 

After Hell Weekend I did indeed join the fold, as 
Mr. Klar says. And here is the nub. Although I had 
twinges^^r^bttteniess during the ordeal I was still suf- 
ficiently enraptured with the wisdom of the Senior 
brothers that I did not quit the fraternity and soon forgot 
my outrage. As countless others before me I even 
glorified the ordeal. This is the greatest danger of 
Hdl Weekend. It so dulls one's sensibilities to a fel- 
low human being's pain and humiliation that a normally 
humane penon like MrT^IOar^can say that he "opted 
for .its abolishment several times, not because it is 
bad but only because more worthwhile thin^ can be 
accomplished", (emphasis mine) 

Any comparison of the brothers with Nazis or the 
brother in charge with Adolph Hitler would of course 
be outrageous; I would never attempt to liken the person- 
alities of the brothers in any fraternity, even when Hell 
Weekend transforms them into Mr. Hydes, to the men- 
tallities of the genoddal Nazis. But a parallel exists in 
that both groups are able to dichotomize and compart- 
mentalize their lives. The brothers could subjugate and 
humiliate the pledges, and then go home and court their 
girl-friends, while the Nazis could commit their far 
greater atrocities and then a few hours later tell their 
kids bedtime stories. lo both cases, and let me emphas- 
ize that there is an enormous difference in degree, the 
oppressors lose much of thehr human sensitivity. 

As to not "making any complaint of objection" come 
now, Mr. Klar, after experiencing the physical and psy- 
chological "understanding" of the brothers do you really 
think I could have kindled their sympathy by any pro- 
test? 

On the morning the article came out the brother 
in charge of Hell Weekend this year complained to me 
that I "had made his job harder" now and that, be- 
cause of me, he would "have to change the,whoIe thing." 
I told him that I was sony, and that he had my deepest 
sympathies. 



Councilliiiil.. 



■ Continued from page 1 

"This is the second time a Council meeting was cancelled due to 
lack of a quprum..Many Councillors have shown a complete disregard 
for their; ràjionsibilities. There were Items to be considered that 
have been on the agenda for the last three meetings. 

"This is not a separate item, but one of a long pattern. Lack of 
quorums, continual absence of certain Councillors, motions to ad- 
journ with important legislation untouched, inability of some to take 
care of election polls, or to cany out responsibilities mandated by 
by Council, have all been evidence of passive disinterest and incom- 
petence." - " 

However, Hyman pointed out, (Council has met Aiore frequently 
this year than any other year. 

Particularly hard-hit by the Council's failure to meet was the 
Housing Committee, whose budget for a survey of student housing 
conditions was on last night's agenda. . ■ ' - 

/.. .The survey to analyze available housing ' In' teniis of cost, con- 
venience and suitability: is being done to convince the Governors that 
there are indeed 300 McGiU students in need of better housing. The 
report, which will take two weeks to prepare, is to be considered at 
the next Board of Governors meeting on November 25. If it is not 
completed, the entire project will be delayed. 

The Housing C>)mmittee will try to have its budget passed at to- 
day's meeting of the Finance Committee, and although this is contrary 
to established procedure, the nature of the emergency makes it like- 
ly that an exception will be made. However, if the survey cannot be 
completed in time, or if the Board of Governor is not convinced by 
it, the Housing Committee is considering what chairman Brian Hirst 
calls "more drastic measures". 

"Unless Council wants to treat the housing situation at this uni- 
versity in a consistent and serious manner,'!, he said, "it will be 
impossible for the project to be completed on time. It cannot act ir- 
responsibly when the needs of thousands of McGill students are at 
stake." 

Present at last night's meeting were Sheldon Schreter, André 
Mécs, Doreen Laszlo, JuUus Grey, Michael Clarke, Melvin Neider- 
hoffer, Peter Foster, Ian Hyman. Robert Hajaly. and Daily editor 
Mark Starowicz, who is a non-voting member. 



CEGEPs... 

Contlnuod from page 1 

in the implementation of the Par- 
ent Report. 

So began a thre'e-year cor- 
respondence between the Mc- 
Gill administration, the Quebec 
government' and the Superii 



Council of Education. At'-one^ 
point it even looked like McGill 
was going to have to house Daw- 
son College (as the first Enghsh- 
language' CEGEP was now chris- 
. tened). 

This summer, debate began 
among three plans for accommo- 

■ daUng CEGEP-level students a. 

fM^lll: the first was the Tive-'- 
year plan: the second was a plan 
to go with a four-year, degree 
with summer work (which was re- 
jected by the chemistry and phy- 
sics departments on the grounds 
that it might interrupt research 
and it might lead to a perma- 
nent trimester system): and the 
third was the normal four-year 
plan, vrith more extensive sum- 
mer courses. 

Finally the administrators. 
Vice-Principals Michael Oli- 
ver. Carl Winkler, and H. G. 
Dion. Director of Collegiate 
Studies Elton Pounder Kdn;; 



Uon Dean C. Wayne Hall, and 
Director of the Office of Re- 
search on Planning and Develop- 
ment (ORPAD) K.L.S. Gunn 
went off to Quebec having ac- 
cepted the first pbn. 

Where anybody goes from here 
is uncertain (as usual in the 
educational affairs of this pro- 
nce): but one thing is fairly 
^tain, and that is. come hell 
or ' high water. Dawson College 
will open its. doors this Septem- 
ber - on a temporary West-end

Formally disassociating itself 
from Bourbeau's statement, the 
UGEQ executive published their 
own declaration. 

Recognizing that the constitu- 
tion has created an "authorita- 
rian leadership" in the presi- 
dency, the executive declaration 
mnintnins that the direction of 



UGEQ has for a long time been 
a collective effort. 

Nevertheless, the statement 
claimed, the president must 
exercise certain leadership ' in 
co-ordination and division of 
bbor. The executive accused 
Bourbeau of not exercising enough 
leadership. 

Both statements agree that 
UGEQ's next national congress 
in February must revise the 
structures of the union. 

It is not yet known who will 
be the interim president to suc- 
ceed Bourbeau.

The 




as zipper 



by ALLEN GARR 

Canadian University Press 

Last week a man told a group 
of university presidents to help 
students get summer jobs by 
going "MadisonAvenue". 

Tlie man was W. H. Rutledge, 
Director, of Operations for ttie 
University Career Planning As- 
sociation, and the occasion was 
the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation of Universities and Col- 
leges- of Canada - God bless 
them. 

Well,; -I promptly forgot I the 
whole traumatic vision of cello- 
wrap students until I popped in- 
to Wollworth's yesterday and 
ordered my lunch to the plainti- 
ve strains of free enterprise - 
...Noel... no kidding. 
LOld Rutledge was , right, I 
thought, it's a buyer's markeL 
He's ; bustling summer jobs in 
November and the shop, keeper 
is acting like "lest we forget", 
refers to last year's profits. 



Universities are big business: 
students are our most impor- 
tant product 

It doesn't matter wnat material 
it's made out of as Jong as it has 
a good zipper. Do ybii havè a good 
zipper? 

More important - is your uni- 
versity president' teUing the 
world about your zippè^j^ind 
what your zipper can db^fo^tite 

world? 

W. H. said what you hâve to 
do is make film 'jidips for local 
T. V. 'and sounçlJjËMcks .for pu- 
blic service aniiounEeinents' on 
the . radio. Sell students like you 
sell a new car or, better still, 
like you sell something perso- 
nal . 

How about: . "Industrialists, 
decide for yourself. Would you 
rather sit back and count the days 
on the calendar waiting for those 
tense moments, or go swimming 
and dancing any day of the month. 
Well you can.

"Looking for sometliing cheap

a bulky payroll or expensive re-

"When your busy season ends,

"But don't just take our word 
for it - decide for yourself." 

Wiiat we need, however, is 
more than a spot on radio here 
and a blip on the telly there. And 
Rutledge is the first to admit it 

He suggests a national organi- 
zation linking students, adminis- 
trators and government in com- 
mon cause with some kind of 
overall theme. 

Ctuistmas has "the spirit of 
giving"; Hallowe'en, "trick or 
treat". For our project I think 
we can profit from the rather in- 
dustrious group of students at 
McGill who say: "management 
is where the action is". Dyna- 
mic, what? 

Now that the theme and goals' 
.are. out of the way, a name to 
convey our message.

Success.. 



Continued from page ) 

Sunday Express predicted. "It is a cold and deliberate 
exercise in violence by evil men using the young and 
gullible for tlieir own ends." 

What lund of "violence"? Newspapers quoted 
repeatedly from "unsigned street leaflets" and "ar- 
^ tides in the undergroundfimssi'M^ in order to prove 
that "razor blades and Grewo'rlcs" were being sent 
to London "by the mails, in advance, and under 
plain covers." It was also allied Ma t inrt nictions on 
how to make petrol boml»^(niblotov codciiiils) were 
being distributed around the country and even posted 
"on the walls of militant headquarters office". Also 
that "secret diversions" were bdng planned so as to 

divide the poUcefonXj^MUiiiiF 

What làadWSl^mjmSi"? The spectre of for- 
eign agitators baunteid'the jouni^ists. It i^ report- 
ed that entire ahplanes had been chaitovd to bring 
experienced revolutionaries from Paris, led by Da- 
niel Cohn-Bendit The British Home OfFice prepar- 
ed a special list of "twenty possible agitators" and 
' circulated this to all immigration entry points. 

What kind of "ends"? Un-Britisb ones, of course. 
"We have not survived a thousand years of predonn; 
inantly peaceful evolution..:",' the edition of thé Sun- 
■ day Telegraph explained, in order that I'profe^on- 
al agitators and revolutionaries" go about attaining 
"their own aims of weakening and ultimately over- 
throwing the Western democratic fabric." 

It is difficult to re<xeate. the atmosphere of 
hysteria. In the fhial days befOTO>i|;|demonstration, 
the newspapeis ran full-page^^Hlda on "where 
the marches may reach flashpoint" or "London 
under 'siege' for today's march". 

One Conservative Member of Parliament made 
front-page headlines when he thundered forth Ids 
answer to the student radicals: "Deport them, soak 
them, cut their scholanhip granjsj^^; 

On October 27, the Fleet Street tandwa'gon ground 
to a halt. The press barons' chQd was stillborn. There 
was no mass violence. 

The live television coverage and the enormous 
teams of reporters aUigsponded to the largest anti- 
American demonstâi|^IR|Britain's history with 
a resounding ya^^^jbnSimiackjn^^ 
plained one papaP(much1aïra'Roi^''cbmpIaiin^ of 
the Christian wiio submitted to the lioni)."A damp 
squib" explained Scotland Yard. "They tried - but 
it was all so very dull" concluded a TV aitic. 

The revolution predicted by the press had failed 
to take place; the pre^ bad to find excuses. Most, 
claimed tbat^jbinioiit was eso^tionally Iow_4 only ; 
30,000 people^f thé physical size of the march (SO 
persons abreast, tightly packed, V* mile long) requir- 
ed the presence of at least 80,000 people. 

The press concentrated the bulk of its coverage 
and pidures on the 2,000 breakavray demonstrators 
hi front of the U.S. Embassy. Yet the Maoists consti- 
■tutedanali^ast insignificant proportion of the march- 
aitfwàfènn their violence was more imaginary 
than real. (For example, in a demonstration held in 
front of the U.S. Embassy last March, the number 
of people arrested was three times the total this 
time.) . J - - , ^: : . .. 

Above all,'the'pres heaped praise on the London 
Police whose "discipline and restraint" supposedly 
saved the day. It is true the Bobbies were excep- 
tionally calm and co-operative (a startling contrast 
to their Montreal and Toronto counterparts). But it is 
also true that many points along the five-mile march 
route were barely policed at all. The self-discipline 



of the demonstratots was clearly responsible for 
the maintenance of peace and order. 

The evidence collected since the October 27 
' Solidarity March is massive.and depressing. Students 
and radidils.in this country are only now beginning to 
draw some condusions. 

The Turst conclusion that can be made concerns 
the untrustworthy - no, the dishonest - nature of the 
commercial press. Of course, complaints against the 
press aren't "new". Countless numbers of people 
seeking publidty for a' cause, or for themselves, com- 
plahi about the lade of coverage or the slant given 
this coverage. 

But in the case of the Odober 27 demonstration, 
the problem was more than just "sbnt". The news- 
papers declared that the "revolution" had been a 
failure when nobody but the newspapers had suggest- 
. ed that there would be a revolution. Shopkeepers 
complained about having to board up windows, al- 
though nobody but the newspapers suggested that 
they take these extraordinary measures. 

The press repeatedly and - one is forced to 
condude - deliberately misrepresented the goals and 
methods of the demonstration. In short, the press 
Ued. . - . 

"Rumor-mongering" and "scare-mongering" are 
terms bebig used by critical observers. Of course, 
the British press is not unique in this respect. The 
Canadian press, and the English papers in Quebec, 
presented a vivid example of distortion and misre- 
' presentation in thch* reports on De Gaulle, the Mont- 
real St Jean Baptiste Day demonstration or the post- 
al workers strike. • 

It is these blatant type<ases that are forcing, 
student groups, and left-wing groups in general, to 
ask in whose interests the commercial press actually 
functions. 

A more fundamental conclusion concerns the 
real effects and political gains made by the demons 
stration. Despite its unprecedented size and the wide 
spectrum of participation (not just "students" as the 
.press reported, but many official labor union repre- 
sentatives) the march failed to cause the slightest 
ripple in Government cirdes... 

On one hand, the Government deplored and de- 
nounced the "forthcoming" violence. On the other 
hand; it ignored the demonstration irtien it proved to 
be non-violent. 

The dilemma can be neatly sununarizcd in two 
questions: What's the use of a violent demonstration, 
showing the power and determination of a particular 
group, if that violence is effectively used by the ruling 
class to iiKdate jbis group? What's the use of peaceful 
free spéœlTif'ue tiding class, and its organs of com- 
munications, ignore urtiat is being said? 

The initial answers being given to these ques- 
tions point to the devdopment of different tactics 
and strategy. Tactically, the demonstrations must - 
in themsdvés, without the reporthig of thetbinmer- 
dal press - reach large numbers of the uncommitted 
public. . 

Imaginative methods will have to be employed to 
do this. Future demonstrations may perhaps consist 
of blocking main shopping streets on a Mondaymoming 
or mass-leaflethig outside maj^^toe^ldings and 

. StrategicaUy, radical grdu^ 'aire'' realizing that 
they must become more precise hi anàlyzhig their 
potential sources of support No longer can they be 
satisfied with the concept of the "rational, unbiased, 
individual dtizen" who was the object of the earlier, 
pacifist-led Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. 
Protests must be aimed at those groupbigs in whose 
interests change should take place.
