Students call for social action

SUS plans SAC

by SHELDON KIRSHNER

students of 1965, sociologists say, arc endowed with more of a social conscience than thcir predecessors of twenty years ago. Through meaningful action, thesc same

professionals maintain, idealism,

This generation of youth are upset about the old order of things. They don’t want to do away with the status quo completely. but they’re in favour of abolishing customs and traditions and institutions that are out of toucn with the modern world.

Today’s youth (and/ or student) are aware of social injustices; they seek to right the wrongs that exist and to help helpless people in any possible way.

In recent years, in universities throughout the continents, students have waged their own version of an anti-poverty compaign against the veritable scourges of poverty. ignorance. and misunderstanding.

What they have done is quite revolutionary: they have established miniature social welfare bureaus on campus.

Sir George Williams now is attempting to climb on the band- wagon, A group of students here are in the process of exploring the possibility and feasibility for such an aformentioned program- me.

students are proving that their in fact, really rings with sincerity.

It will be called SAC or Students Actions Committee. William Hernandez is president of SAC. Ron Luciano, who is

attending Sir George on a Boy’s Club of Canada Scholoarship, is pro-tem Internal Vice-President and Greg Mason handles publicity for the group.

“SAC is an attempt on the part of the student council, to rectify social injustices in society’’, said Mr. Mason.

SAC, which is apolitical, is still in the experimental stage, If SGW Students voice their satisfaction with the organization, SAC will probably begin their work either this winter or next School year.

Mr. Mason wasn’t able to spell out a definite working programme for SAC, but he did offer this information for public consump- tion.

SAC will consider one of its many duties to tutor under- priviledged slum children in Montreal. Student volunteers will teach these children, Another function of SAC, explained Mr.

Operation a Go-Go

Operation A Go-Go is a brand new venture designed by the SUS to co-ordinate all aspects of all organizations operat- ing within the Socicty. To be held on September 25 at 1 p.m. in Birks Hall, the idea of theprogramis to introduce to alistudent leaders and others in- terested, several spe- | Cialty Service groups and operative channels Struc- tured to increase the overall efficiency of SUS | operation. Problems tobe discussed include how the Publications Board, Pulbicity Department , SUS receptionist. etc. can help your group; how to book a room, get Supplies Or get material printed. All are urged to attend.

Few students to lose vote

by ALLEN NUTIK Few university students will in

fact lose their right to vote in the forthcoming general federal election. This naturally assumes, of course, that the student is:

twenty-one years of age,

a Canadian citizen, or a British

Subject resident in Canada more

than one year,

and able to prove residence.

Students possesSing these qualifications will naturally be enumerated in their own cons-

tituencies. They pose no problem, The controversy has arisen over students who study away from home.

According to the Elections Act which is A Government Statute, Students must be resident at uni- versity when the writ of election is issued in order’ to be enumerated. Since the term usually starts later thanSeptember eighth, the date on which the writ was

sued, one assumes students not

lready in residence at their res- ective universities would lose

F franchise to vote.

» BS kh... a. i

Since residence may be consi- dered as the place where any given person spends his time,.the student may state that the university is his official residence, rather than it being his parents’ home.

Therefore, students in residence who this year attend the same university as they did last year may refer to it as being their official residence. The six month period they lived there last year is more tnan sufficient in order to qualify them to vote in riding where the university is located.

The only students who are in effect affected are those who have changed to a different campus this year. They will te required to cast their ballots in their home cons- tituencies, in order not to be disenfranchised.

It is believed that relatively few Georgians will be affected bu the residence clause of the Canada Elections Act .. If stu- dents have particular problems relating to this question, they snould address their inquiries to the returning officer of the constituency of St. Lawrence St. George., or tothe headquarters

of an official candidate in the riding.

Existing program

by Annamarie HILL

At the September 25th meeting of the SUS Council, Student Social Action was the subject of a dialogue between Janet Mooney, member of the Student Union for Peace Action, and Ron Luciano and William Hernandez, members of the SUS Council’s study committee on the proposed SUS Student Action Committee.

Miss Mooney’s approach to student social action involves working outside the existing social agency structures. She recommended that students interested in social action should go intoa community, whether it be a slum or an Indian reserve, and conduct research into the social issue of that community and then organize the local people around the outstanding issue. which, for instance, could be high rents.

The idea is to allow the community itself to solve its problems. Miss Mooney said, ‘I am not interested in short term solutions to long-range problems like poverty. SUPA goes into a community and organizes people to act on their own problems themselves. This is what social workers do not do. Instead, they perpetuate such things as poverty by doing things like providing a little more welfare, which solves an immediate money problem but which does not solve next month’s money problem.”’

Social action with a ‘‘SSUPA approach’? aims, she said, at changing the basic structure of society in order to allow people to make the decisions which affect their lives.

-—_Mr, Luciano an} Mr. Hernandez envisioned the proposed Student Action Committee as working from a different approach. Mr. Luciano said, ‘‘The rroposed Student Action Committee will involve the student community in providing services to the larger community working from existing structures like the Red Feather Agency.’? Both Mr. Luciano and Mr. Hernandez saw the fundamental difference between their approach to student social action and the ‘‘SUPA approach”? which Miss Mooney advocated.

Mr. Luciano said, ‘‘I don’t think that students new to the idea of social action are well enough prepared to workin a community as SUPA works.’’ He and Mr. Hernandez thought that perhaps the Student Action Committee could be a preparatory step to a ‘““SSUPA approach”? to social action,

Miss Mooney said, ‘‘There are people much better qualified than

we are to do the kind of social work the study committee is proposing for the Student Action Committee. Why waste time doing things inadequa- tely and in a haphazard manner when there are highly qualified people working in these areas full time?”

Following this discussion, Mr, Luciano and Mr. Hernandez decided to call a meeting of all students interested in social action, The members of this meeting will decide upon its course of action,

Marsha Akman, Arts I, was one of four shoe-shine volunteers stationed on Mansfield Street during the Shinerama. Due to the poor response of passers-by, Marsha and friends decided to take turns shouting at the people on St. Catherine to come over for a shine. Marsha apparently took the wrong shift to yell and was cordially escorted by the boys in blue to Station No. 10. Marsha was the guest

of the county for 45 minutes.

schedule singulat entertainment

One of the very entertaining freshman programs being planned by Ivars Sayfy, chairman of the freshman month committee is the Variety Show. This will take place at Birk’s Hall on Friday, September 24 at 8: 30 P.M, and the admission will be $.50 per person.

Students will be entertained by such well - known groups as the ‘“‘Newlanders’’? and ‘*M.G, and the Escorts.’’ The Newlanders are a group of five happy -- go lucky and versatile young men. Their repertoire extends from standard folk ballads to old French Canadian folk songs. Fully equipped with banjo, two guitars, bongos and bass, they are in constant demand for appearances at resorts, colleges, radio and television. They can be relied upon to provide top level

entertainment for all,

Our other group-M.G, and the Escorts are a rising young band, well-known by the teens. The group has just returned from a very succesful trip to Ottawa, where they played two full houses. M.G. and the Escorts play in Montreal, planning to retain it as their home base. The drummer being a second year commerce student at Sir George, the group should feel quite at home.

Other attractions of the Variety how will consist of folk music frunished by ‘*Penny Lang and Accompaniment’’, calypso Leon Moranzi, a West Indian Troup **The Don Juans”? plus other acts. The M.C. of this promising show will be Bob Gilles,

SUPA re-evaluated

at recent camp session

From September 4th to Septem- ber 10th, the Student Union for Peace Action (SUPA) held = an Evaluation Institute at Ste. Calixte, 40 miles northeast of Montreal.

120 students and interested peo- ple from across Canada spent the week discussing the work of the six SUPA summer projects and discussing plans for the future.

The eighty project participants came directly to the institute from projects which varied greatly in purpose and location. The Doukhobour Project held in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia did research into the Problems of assimilation that the Doukhobours face in Canada. The project people worked with local groups to look for solutions to the Special problems’ which _— the Doukhobours face,

The Student Neestow Partner- Ship Project in Saskatchewan worked with the Saskatchewan Indians to help define the Indian problems and look for solutions which the Indians themselves could enact. The School for Social Theory in Toronto provided people withan opportunity to study basic social theory and also apply this study to contemporary social problems concerning SUPA, like decentrali- zation of political power.

The Peace and Professions Project in Toronto worked with

professional people like social workers and teachers to find new and relevant ways in which the professions can work in their chosen fields. The Kingston Community Project worked in the Slums of Kingston, Ontario, Organizing the poor around issues like poor housing in order for the poor to have a Say in the things Which affect their lives.

The LaMacaza Project in Quebec worked with the community to define the local social problems and worked to organize the local inhabitants around the issue of underdevelopment in the area,

linking the need for disarmament before the money for any kind of social or economic development could occur.

The SUPA philosophy underlying the six summer projects is that in order to attain a world where peace prevails, people must be free to make the decisions which affect their lives. Social injustices like poverty and discrimination are the bases upon which the cold war thrives. Members of SUPA feel that in order for people to live full human lives, they must participate in making the decisions which will affect their life course.

In this light, the SUPA Evalua- tion Institute participants made

Debating Union to take more aggressive role

‘*The Debating Union should take a more aggressive role in students affairs’’, said Alex Savoyan, Speaker of the Debating Union.

Mr. Savoyan felt that the Union should be an _ integral part of university life. Carol Lechner, Deputy Speaker, agreed that students have not been using the Union to its full adventage ‘‘asa sounding board for different opinions of the students,’’

They expressed their hopes that this year the students will use the Union to voice their opinions on a wide range of topics. Plans for this year include several speakers on diverse topics (to be announced shortly); teams will be sent from Sir George to speak at other universities. A satire on Sir George will be presented by the Union for the first time, and a director has been chosen with the production well under way.

The Debating Tournament, October 29-30, will highlight the Union’s activities for the year with teams competing from other universities spread across the continent, In addition to all this, the Union will present a training programme for those interested

in improving their wit, satire and humour or for those who just want to debate. The elementary points of debating will be explained to the novices by three former members of the Union who are presently in law school,

The leaders of the Union stated that one does not need to have ambitions of becoming a lawyer or politician in order to join, for “being able to express yourself orally and in an effective and concise manner is avaluable asset in any field of endeavour.”?

The Kashtan thing

It seems that anumber of students on campus have become very disturbed over action taken by Council on the ‘‘great Kashtan question’’.

Freedom of speech, and freedom of students to listen to whom they choose, is avery serious and very precious right which no one, least of all the SUS Council, wishes to deny.

It appears that many people, reacting immediately to the passing of an unfortunate bylaw, which stated that the invitation of any speaker to the University be subject to approval of Council, misread the issue.

It seems to us that freedom of speech, which no one holds dearer than an editorially autonomous newspaper such as THE GEORGIAN,

seems to display a breakdown of communication among Council members, an ill that must be cured before Council can attempt to carry out the grave issues that this academic year will undoubtedly bring. {Perhaps it can best be cured by the election of the five missing representatives to Council by a MAJORITY of the student body.)

The Council that passed such a bylaw wasa new, slightly bewildered and confused body. There can be no doubt in the minds of students who elected this Council that it is the responsibility of the group not to implement programs that may be detrimental to the name of the University, the Council itself, or the student body. It is Council’s duty, not right, to insure, as much as it lies within its power to do so, that no harm come to either students guests of the university or university property.

Looking back atthe motion, Council realized

that this move, although justifiable at the time, would not do for the future, and therefore recinded the motion. The Council did state in the official minutes that the repeal does not affect Council’s responsibility in this area.

Council is ultimately responsible for all activity taking place within this university as it pertains to students. The question seems to be, should the Council be directly responsible for approving or disapproving various programs? Perhaps not. Perhaps some other body should be instituted to deal with such matters.

The Kashton incident is closed with the resignation of former Arts President Jack Leibman, who proposed the program, and the question of who should’ bear ultimate responsibility is non-existent. It undoubtedly belongs to Council. But perhaps the onus could be vested in a subsidiary body.

Letters to

the Editor

Complaint

Dear Madam,

I have always believed that a student could not attend a university for two years without learning how to express himself clearly and intelligently in writing, Mr. Nutik has shattered this childish illusion, His editorial, ‘‘SoItSeems’’, inthe first edition of this year’s GEOR- GIAN, must be considered one of the poorest examples of writing in the English language.

The theme of his composition is ostensibly ‘‘student apathy’’, a Subject so well worn that it approaches the hackneyed. With this theme as a Starting point, Mr. Nutik, feels no qualms about diverting his attention to such things as the rebel student, student riots, aspects of the Quiet Revolution and an inadequate de- finition of the function of a uni- versity. After several readings, One assumes that the essayist is attempting to convince us that a proper balence must be achieved between the dual aspects of a full university life, the academic and the extracurricular, However, Mr. Nutik is evidently convinced that the English language is_ too unsophisticated a vehicle to deal with two features of a single theme, As aresult, he thrashes about wildy but never lands a blow. His effort indicates that he has not thought about his subject sufficiently and his not taken the trouble to organize his ideas.

The English language is a uSeless instrument of communication un- less. one follows the commonly accepted rules. ‘Spelling, for

example, is important, You may ‘CITE’? at least one example,’’ and you may build on a “‘SITE”’, Punctuation must also be consi- dered carefully and a profusion of dashes in any essay is a good indication of the ignorance of proper punctuation on the part of the essayist. Again, one is expected to write sentances and not simply dash off phrases like, ‘‘And now comes in that genuine interest of a real student’’. Finally, one must be careful, not so much in speaking but at least in writing to write clearly (at least I think so) and not clutter up your sen- tances with useless, and, by the way, meaningless, qualifying phrases and words, double negatives, and authorial intru- sions which really, tends to confuse the issue at hand while besides , one goes not away with the ideas that the writer, however good his grades are, is too intelli- gent,

THE GEORGIAN is a university newspaper and must take res- ponsibility to maintain certain Standards of composition in the articles which it publishes, Since Mr. Nutik essay would be rejected by any high school publication, I Suggest that THE GEORGIAN has failed in its duty. If Mr. Nutik, wishes to make an ass of himself, let him do it elsewhere.

Edward RITTER, ARTS IV.

Another one Dear Madam,

In last week’s issue of THE GEORGIAN Mr. Nutik criticized

very strongly the various political clubs on campus, He implied that some ofthese clubs have **acquired diseases which trheaten our nation’s future.’’ The main disease from which these clubs are accused of suffering is of ‘*becoming pom- pous masters of skulduggery.’’ How ridiculous can you get?

Does the author mean to say that university clubs are constituted of power politicians? Are we really that **inefficient’’? and ‘‘useless’’? I do not believe that this is really the case.

We are accused of not offering solutions to the nation’s ills. If we had these solutions we would not be members of university political clubs but of federal or provincial parliaments. I maintain that a university club is necessary and important body. Our club exists in order to serve as both a parti- cipating and a pressure group within the framework of both our federal and provincial parties, When we feel that certain measures should be initiated or that others now existing ought to be modified, we are in a position to bring our opinions to the proper persons or group of persons in charge,

Perhaps our voice alone is not very influential in the affairs of the nation, But our group is a member of both a national and provincial federation of students and our voice is heard and respected. We cannot, at this stage, ‘‘find these solutions’, We canonly offer our ideas as students of how we feel certain things should by done. If we do not receive sup- port and constructive ideas from

our own fellow students from where

are we expected to acquire them? HARVEY KALNISTKY, President, SGWU Liberal Club...

A dream?

Dear Madam,

Please forgive the handwriting Since I do not use a typewriter,

A year or so ago some student or students of SGWU had a magni- ficent dream which they wrote up aS a joke or ‘‘hoaz’’ in ‘*The Georgian’’; it was a large under- ground campus with grass, flowers, trees, tec.

WHY must it only be a dream!

Perhaps there isn’t an under- ground cavern large enough or deep enough; why not make one?

Sure it will cost money, lots of money; doesn’t anything worth its Salt cost money, brains, and plen- ty of hardwork (sic),

Give our student engineers the problem of designing and planning our economics’ students’ the challenge of cutting costs; add to that, guidance from the profes- sors of engineering and economics,

You say it would drain our electric power; instal (Sic) an atomic plant well Secreted and buried with the capability of supplying the whole city even the province if our electricity should fail. Power that would air condi- tion the whole campus, produce light, produce rain as needed through a sprinkler system; its own complete disposal unit that returns everything back to use again.

Yes it sounds fantastic, but is it anymore (sic) fantastic than the present. day buildings that are being raised above ground.

It’s worth serious thought and now is the time, when a great new university is being built, It Should have a campus.

This campus would also provide protection, for an indefinite lenght of time, for a large number of people, from atomic fall out if that should become necessary,

Respectfully submitted by the parent of a former student. E. M, Heathe

Convocation

There will be a Special Convocation for the installation of our new Chancellor, Fraser F, Fulton, on Saturday, September 25, 1965 at3:00p.m. in the Citadel of the Salvation Army. All students are invited to attend. Tickets may be obtained at the Information Desk, Registrar’s Office, on Thursday, September 23rd and Friday, September 24th,

Open house

The Crossroads Student Centre is holding an openhouse Saturday, September, 25, for Overseas students from Sir George, McGill and the University of Montreal. The centre, which is located at 6020 Wilderton (between Cote Ste. Catherine and Van Horne), is a home for foreign students and sponsors social and cultural programs for bothoverseas and Canadian students during the year. Representatives of admi- i nistration and faculty will also attend the open house which begins at 8:30 p.m,

I had refrained in this herefore poorly written column to discuss the SUS, because I was, and still am, planning to contest the by- election for the post of External Vice-President. However, the time has definitely arrived whe certain functions of our Council must be questioned,

As you may have read in last week’s Georgian, half of the Council members have become ineligible to sit on that venerable institution, Those who remained then appointed a Pro-Tem Internal Vice-President, among others I personally have nothing but praise and respect for Ron Luciano, because he reprsents the avant- garde of open-minded student thinking.

It is not logical, I submit, that such a task as Internal Vice- President would be given to a relative unknown, as was Ron

“PEOPLE LIKE

ON

Luciano at that time. He had not hitherto been active in student affaires. However, the Council did appoint him, a very fortunate happening I must add.

Then why not, I ask, appoint an External Vice-President Pro- Tem? A President, which one obviously must admit (because all are) was already overburdened with his own duties, could hardly assume the External role and simultaneously handle both WELL, But, Ronald K. Moores has

assumed both jobs,that is. The Kashtan affair is a rather

interesting one. Council effectively decided that Sir George Williams students WOULD or SHOULD not have the opportunity of hearing that Communist gentleman; another Pouliot situation might erupt. Hal Let’s face it Council was scared! Well, Jack Liebman was not; he isno Communist either,
