MAY 1972 

Loyola Summer School: 
3,500 students expected 

this year 

Three and a half thousand students 
are expected to enroll for courses in 
Loyola's 1972 Summer School, making 
it the largest to date. 

The Summer School, operated by 
the college’s Evening Division, was 
started in 1957 with 25 students, and 
has enlarged steadily since. In 1971, 
3351 students were enrolled. 

For 1972 the school is offering 
145 full courses and 5] half courses. 
Normal admission requirement is 
Junior Matriculation, its equivalent, 
or mature status. 

The Summer School offers Degree 
Programmes in the Faculties of Arts, 
Commerce and Science as well as 
Diploma Programmes in the Faculty 
of Commerce and special diplomas in 
Srey Technology and Quality Con- 

Bachelor of Arts with a Major in 
Economics, English, French, History, 
Mathematics, Modern Languages, 
Philosophy, Political Science, Psychol- 
ogy, Sociology and Theology are offer- 
ed. There are also courses in 
Communication Arts, Interdisciplinary 
Studies and Art. 

Degree candidates in the Faculty 
of Commerce may major in Accoun- 
tancy, Business Administration or 
Economics and Computer Science. 
Faculty of Commerce also offers 11- 
course programmes leading to a Di- 
ploma in Accountancy, Business Ad- 
ministration, Data Processing and In- 
dustrial Relations for students who 
may not wish to fulfill all the require- 
ments for a Bachelor of Commerce 
Degree but are concerned mainly 
with acquiring an education in a spe- 
cialized Business area. 

Upon completion of the Diploma 
Programme, should students wish to 
continue their studies towards a Bache- 
lor of Commerce Degree, full accredi- 
tation for all courses taken at the Di- 
ploma level will be granted if appli- 
cable to the Programme selected. 



The Faculty of Science currently 
offers courses leading to a General 
and Major Bachelor of Science Degree 
in Chemistry, Mathematics and 
Physics and Majors only in Biology 
and Psychology. 

The Summer School also presents 
an intensive 6-week Institute in the 
French language, July 3 to August11, 
which attracts students from many 
areas of North America, who mainly 
live on campus in as completely a 
French milieu as possible. 

Lectures and seminars are con- 
ducted only in the French language 
during the Institute and classes are 
taught in small groups with two Pro- 
fessors assigned to each group. 

Scientific testing determines place- 
ment at one of three Academic Levels 
— Beginners, Intermediate and Advan- 
ced and modernscientific laboratories 
are used extensively during the five 
hours of formal instruction each day. 
With the approval of the College 
Administration, up to two undergrad- 
vate credits may be granted upon the 
successful comp'etion of the courses. 

Loyola-Sir George 
union guidelines 

Guidelines for further ‘negotia- 
tions leading to the establishment of 
a new university’’ have been announ- 
ced by Rev. Stanley Drummond, S.J., 
Chairman of the Board of Trustees 
of Loyola and C. A. Duff, Chairman of 
the Board of Governors of Sir George 
Williams University. 

The guidelines call for a new Uni- 
versity under a single charter with one 
governing board, onesenate, and one 
chief executive officer, and state that 
the two institutions will negotiate as 
equals. °°” ~ 

The new university will hav« two 
campuses with an institutional frame- 
work that will preserve those educa- 
tional traditions of both institutions 
which prove academically valuable 
and financially feasible. 

Administrative structures will be 
integrated wherever possible, but 
there willbe appropriate decentraliza- 
tion where this is required to ensure 
effective service to students, faculty 
and other members of the university 

There will be no substantial changes 
in the organization of the two insti- 
tutions affecting the opening of classes 
next fall. 

Every effort will be made to bring 
the new university into being as rapid- 
ly as possible, bearing in mind the 
fact that it is expected to be some 
years before its definitive character 

Negotiators will be particularly 
concerned with the purposes, 
strengths and weaknesses of all Facul- 
ties in each institution. These will be 
studied with a view to integration, 
co-ordination or co-operation, as 
seems desirable. 

They will be concerned with ensur- 
ing that each Faculty, whether operat- 

— continued on page 2

continued from page | 

ing on one or bothcampuses, is a via- 

ble and forward-looking entity, and 
that the structural arrangements they 
propose will most effectively serve 
the students of the new institution. 
The guidelines were approved by 
the Board of the two institutions fol- 
lowing submission by a Joint Com- 
mittee consisting of eight representa- 
tives from each institution. They were 
developed by a sub-committee of the 
principal officers, Rev. P. G. Malone, 
President of Loyola, and Dr. J. W. 
O'Brien, Principal of SGWU, and the 

respective academic heads, Dr. J. C. 
Burke and Prof. J. Bordan. 

A further report by this sub-com- 
mittee to the Joint Committee— the 
steering group incurrent discussions — 
is expected to be submitted shortly. 
This committee is continuing its work 
aimed at recommending terms of ref- 
erence and membership of the sub- 
committees which will deal with aca- 
demic and administrative structures. 
Sub-committees reviewing the legal 
and financial aspects have been in 
operation for some weeks. 

The guidelines 

1. Loyola and Sir George Williams 
University enter into these nego- 
tiations as two equal institutions. 

2. The purpose of the negotiations 
is to establish a new University 
under a single chief executive 

3. The new University will have one 
governing board, onesenate, and 
one chief executive officer. 

4. The administrative structure will 
be integrated, with appropriate 
decentralization. Such administra- 
tive offices will be maintained 
on each campus as are required 
to ensure effective service to the 
students, faculty and other mem- 
bers of the university community 
who study, teach and work there. 

5. In developing the academic and 
administrative structures that will 
ensure the most fruitful use of the 
existing human and material re- 
sources of the two institutions, 
negotiators will pay due attention 
to the traditions of each institu- 

6. The new University will have two 
campuses, which will serve as an 
institutional framework for pre- 
serving those educational tradi- 
tions of the two institutions which 
prove academically valuable 
and financially feasible according 
to appropriate criteria. Itis never- 
theless recognized that the new 
University, once established, must 
have the freedom to evolve its 
own character and structures. Fur- 
ther, it will take some years fora 
definitive character to emerge. 

7. Negotiators will study the present 
purposes, strengths and weak- 
nesses of the Faculties in each In- 
stitution with a view to developing 
schedules either for integration 

or for various forms of coordina- 
tion and cooperation, as seem 
desirable. They will be concerned 
with ensuring that each Faculty, 
whether operating on one orboth 
campuses, is a viable and for- 
ward-looking entity, and that the 
structural arrangements they pro- 
pose will most effectively serve 
the students of the new institution. 
They will thus enable to flourish 
those elements of the present di- 
versity that are both academically 
valuable and financially feasible. 

8. Negotiators will have as their 
chief concern the long-term aca- 
demic quality and administrative 
efficiency of the new University. 
In developing their recommenda- 
tions, they will pay due attention 
to the need to minimize the dis- 
location of students, faculty and 
non-teaching personnel during 
the initial period of union. 

9. The Norris Report from Loyola 
and SGWU paper dated Septem- 
ber, 1971 will be used in defining 
the areas in which recommenda- 
tions are to be made. 

10. Questions of interpretation re- 

garding this present document, 
the Norris Report and the SGWU 
paper shall be decided by a com- 
mittee made up of the Principal 
and Vice-Principal, Academic of 
SGWU and the President and 
Vice-President, Academic of Loy- 
ola. In interpretation this present 
document shall take precedence. 

11. In the case of conflict among the 

three documents named above, 
the committee referred toinpara- 
graph 10 shall make recom- 
mendations to the Joint Com- 
mittee of the two Boards as to the 
resolution of the problem. 

Chris Hayes 
for Stanley 
Cup playoffs 

Chris Hayes, '71, former Loyola 
Hockey Captain and honours student, 
has been called up to the Boston Bruins 
for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hayes 
won Rookie of the Year honours this 
year with the Oklahoma City Blazers 
of the Central Professional Hockey 
League. He made his first NHL appear- 
ance on May 21, in a playoff game 
against St. Louis on a line centered 
by Phil Esposito. 

During his four years at Loyola, 
Hayes captained the Warriors three 
times and led them to three consecu- 
tive league titles ('68-69, '69-70, '70- 
71). He was an honours student in Econ- 
omics and upon graduation, received 
the Brodrick Award, presented annual- 
ly to the student combining athletic 
and academic excellence. 

Warrior coach Dave Draper was 
delighted to see his former pupil inthe 
NHL. “It was gratifying to see Chris 
play in his first National League game. 
He has a great future ahead of him 
in hockey. This should prove to be an 
incentive for all present and pros- 
pective Canadian College hockey 
players”, said Draper. 

Hayes is no stranger to Boston 
hockey fans— as acollegian he played 
on Loyola Warrior teams which de- 
feated both Boston College and Har- 
vard. On the merit of his college 
performances he was named to the 
all-league team four consecutive 
years and in 1971 received college 
hockey’s highest honour by being 
named for the All-Canadian team. 


Spring convocation this year will 
see more students graduating than 
ever before in the college's history. 

Almost 1200 students are expected 
to receive their degrees. Last spring 
730 students graduated in the largest 
convocation then held at the college. 

Convocation will be on Saturday, 
May 27. The guest speaker will be 
Dr. Colin B. Mackay, Executive Direc- 
tor of the Association of Universities 
and Colleges of Canada. 

The new 


Bill Pelton, '48, who becomes 35th 
president of the Loyola Alumni body 
on May 15th, will take the post with a 
wealth of involvementwith the college 
already to his credit. 

His active participation in Loyola 
affairs dates back to his college days 
when he was, among other things, 
“a star in athletics, a wizard during 
exams and president of the student 
body’’ as the Review of '48 put it. 

The Review also commented that 
Bill was a ‘‘pundit before a typewriter 
never in a rush, always easy 
going, always relaxed,’’ qualities he 
still shows today. 

As a Freshman he sneaked intothe 
Science Course, leaving Father 
MacGuigan and his Milton, Pope, and 
the Saturday Review of Literature. 

In his Sophomore year he helped to 
welcome many of the returning veter- 
ans from World War llincluding Flying 
Officer Robert ‘‘Tubby'’ O'Connell, 
now thr Provincial of the Holy Cross 
Fathers, and Major Paul Carten, who 
was returning from some of the heavi- 
est fighting in Italy. 

As a Junior, Bill was the first Science 
student to take part in debates with the 
Montreal Debating League. Through- 
out those years, he was an honours 
student and a very active participant 
in all activities. 

Incoming president 
Bill Pelton (right) 
with his predecessor 
Brian Gallery. 

The new President was prominent 
in Athletics (football, hockey, track), 
Sodality, Loyola News, Debating 
(M.D.L. and |.U.D.L.), Dramatics, Ath- 
letic Association, andas a Class Repre- 
sentative and finally in 1947-48 as 
President of the Student Association. 

He was a member of a class that 
has made its mark in various fields 
of endeavour. Among his classmates 
were Paul Shaughnessy, Dr. Paul But- 
zer, Larry Doherty, Paul Gervais, 
M.P., Robert Guimond, Justin Kiselius, 
Henry Magnan, Harold McCarney, the 
McGee's (Frank and James), Charles 
Phelan, Q.C., Joseph Roney, Maurice 
Scarpaleggia and John Walsh. 

After completing his Science course 
Bill taught at Loyola and took post- 
graduate studies at McGill. After a 
few years, he ventured into the out- 
side world full of ambition and ability. 

Today he is the General-Manager 
of Continental Chemicals Ltd., supplier 
of water treatment products and ser- 
vices, and is highly regarded in his 

He is married (his wife Tina isa part 

time student at Loyola), has a son, 
Jim (a student at Loyola High School), 
and a daughter, Mary-Joe. All are 
avid skiers and enjoy outdoor life. 

The thirty-fifth President may well 
become one of the outstanding Presi- 
dents of thr Alumni Association. He will 
have a strong executive to guide and 
support him. Des Lartigue ‘49, and 
Gord McCarthy '57 are returning as 
First Vice-President and Treasurer 

André “‘Flip’’ Laliberte '53 will take 
over as Second Vice-President, and 
George Lengvari '63 moves into the 
Secretary position. 

The President, Executive and nine 
elected Directors will | > confronted 
by new perplexing situ .tions during 
the 1972-73 term which should make 
the year an interesting and challeng- 
ing one. But Bob Beauregard ‘60, 
Chairman of the Nominating Com- 
mittee, says he is confident his com- 
mittee selected a strong capable 
Board that will be more than equal 
to any problems it meets. 

Loyola physical education program is a first 

Loyola will add a newly developed 
physical education major program to 
its curriculum in the fall. Adopted fol- 
lowing a study headed by the college's 
physical education director, Ed Enos, 
it is a Canadian first. 

The primary objective of the pro- 
gram, entitled Bio-Physical Education, 
is to provide students with a compre- 
hensive study of the ‘why’ of the 
body’s functioning. It has been intro- 
duced to meet the growing demand 
for physical education, health and 
para-medical studies and will lead to 
a Bachelor of Science degree. 

The college’s laboratories and 
athletic facilities will be put to maxi- 
mum use in teaching the new course. 

Provisions have been made to use 
closed circuit television to analyse 
athletic performances. Stop-action 
cameras and audio-visual aids willbe 
an integral part of the course. 

Nutrition, fitness programs andthe 
degenerative process of aging will be 
studied. In laboratory sessions 
students will chemically analyze the 
effects of beneficial and harmful drugs 
on the body and dissect animals. 

They will study the structure of the 
body firsthand using prosected human 
cadavers and also analyze their own 
body's responses to different levels 
of activities, two areas of study pre- 
viously reserved for medical school 
students. : 

Professors from the Faculty of 
Science will assist in the program. 
They will include the Dean of Science, 
Rev. A. Graham, S.J.; psychologist 
Dr. Herbert Ladd; Biology head Fr. 
R. Cronin, S.J., and Ed Enos. 

The new program has received 
praise from several quarters, in- 
cluding Mr. J. Gravel, Assistant Direc- 
tor General of Sports Participation 
Canada. “Your graduates in whatever 
field they choose to enter, will have 
the training to motivate large num- 
bers of Quebecers to be physically 
fit. Let's hope your efforts reach the 
whole of Canada shortly,"’ he said.

A tribute to 
Ed Meagher 

Ed Meagher, Coach, Administrator 
and Teacher at Loyola for the past 
twenty-five years is being honoured 
on Friday, June 16th in the Ballroom 
of the Chateau Champlain. 

This happy event is being held 
to pay tribute to a person who for 
more than a quarter of a century 
has developed into something of an 
institution himself at Loyola. 

Born in 1926, Ed Meagher came 
to Loyola for high school and college 
and obtained his B.A. in 1946. During 
his student years he distinguished 
himself as an athlete particularly in 
‘football and hockey. He became 
the property of the Detroit Red Wings 
but faulty vision kept him from the 
big time. 

He also coached a great deal dur- 
ing his student days but it was not 
until after graduation that he made 
a profession of moulding young ath- 
letes and gentlement on the ice, the 
gridiron and the classroom. 

At one time he served in the dual 
role of Athletic Director of the Col-

Fr. Thomas 
by Toronto 

The Toronto Chapter of the Alumni 
Association willbe honouring the Very 
Rev. Thomas Moylan, S.J., ata recep- 
tion dinner and dance on Friday, June 
2, in recognition of his long years in 
various Jesuit houses, and especially 
for his contribution to Loyola. 

From the early 40's to the early 
sixties Fr. Moylan was one of the 
most capable and dedicated Jesuits 
to serve the college. At one time or 
another he was a teacher, confessor, 
prefect of discipline, moderator of the 
Athletic Association, and one heck 
of a baseball pitcher. 

One of his main contributions to 
Loyola was as first director of the 
Evening Division. He took on the post 
when the division opened in 1957 
(with 25 students) and helped it grow 
to a point where student enrolment 
was near the 1,000 mark. 

He will also be fondly remembered 
by many as moderator of the Border’s 
Flat. In the late forties and fifties 
there was no Hingston Hall. Out-of- 
town students, andsome from Mon- 
treal, livedin the Administration Build- 
ing in rooms that are now classrooms 
and offices. 

But the ‘Flat’’ was something more 
than a number of rooms in the col- 
lege. It was an institution; a closely- 
knit community composed of widely 
diversified types with personalities 
and interests as disparate as their 
backgrounds. Nevertheless they 
shared a common residence, board, 
daily routine— and Fr. Moylan, who 
they affectionately called ‘‘Pop"’. 

For the sixty -odd students wholived 
there the ‘Flat’ was also more than 
a life shared in common. There was a 
pervading spirit, not always detected 
by an outsider. Termed ‘Flat Spirit’, 
it was due largely to the moderator 
who was family head— affable but 
with a levelling influence that served 
all well. 

Students who lived in the ‘‘flat’’ 
had a strong penchant for excesses in 
the line of rest, relaxation and thelate 
sortie off Campus. Father Moylan
