LOYOLA COLLEGE, MONTREAL

Headed For Shelf

by Brian Lilley

At present, the reality of a

remedial reading course for freshmen students is very doubtful.

According to Mr, Cozens, Di- rector of Freshmen, it is “a question of money, classroom and administrators, all three of which are unavailable at the moment.”

However he hopes that the course can at least operate on a minor seale to accommodate the weakest students.

The course was initiated last year by the English Depart- ment. Its purpose was to de- velop the capabilities of the student to handle the large amount of reading and writing expected of him.

Among the 120 experimental students, Dr. M. Blanar noted “generally a good increase in

Radio Loyola | Announces New Services |

Radio Loyola, according to Station Manager Don Morrison, is progressing in its capacity of service to the students of the campus. }

“In the past,"’ said Morrison, “we had only music. We want something more than this and are aiming for solid program- ming.”

In its efforts to achieve this aim, Radio Loyola has come up with a variety of new programs this year, based on student in- terest. |

*Bluenote”’ highlights the list of new programs. This hour- long documentary is concerned with the history and develop- ment of the blues. Morrison would like to use it for ‘ex-

change with other campus radio stations.

‘Sports Shop’ is an interview program. Each week a coach on campus is the guest of | ‘Sports Shop’ and his field of activity is discussed. A round- up of varsity, junior varsity and inter-mural sports is also included. }

‘Focus’ is termed by Morrison as being “‘politically inclined’. Various campus political fig- ures, and if the case warrants it municipal, provincial and federal figures also, are inter- viewed in this 15 minute pro- gram.

The female population of the College has not been forgotten. Beverly Jones, Ilona Lenard and Lynn Murray produce ‘Campus Co-ed’, an hour-long

open forum of opinion and music. Morrison remarked: ‘The

staff is doing a lot on its own. More initiative is being shown this year.”’

“We have allowed in our bud- get this year for the possibil- ity of broadcasting in the Gua- dagni Lounge. All that remains for us is te receive permission from the administration.”

comprehension, speed and vo- eabulary.”’

This year, informal inquiry revealed 450 to 500 freshmen interested in the remedial course. Overburdened by the in- flux of freshmen, the English Department is unable to under- take the task, Blanar noted.

However he feels that this course “is not the duty of English 101, but the respon-

sibility of the whole College.”

The English Professor fur- ther maintains that remedial reading is only the beginning. In general, he believes that the college student has exhibited a need for remedial work on all levels. y

In his English 101 report. to Father President, Dr. Blanar intends to recommend the hir- ing of a permanent Instructor for remedial reading.

With a classroom open all day, this would allow the stud- ent to pursue the course ‘“‘at his own time and leisure.”

The expected cost of, such a venture runs. roughly around $5,500, Until such funds can be made available, the course will have to be delegated to the shelves.

Loyola NEWS, Friday, November 12, 1965

Long Hair And Jeans

There have been complaints this past week regarding the ad- ministration’s policy against long hair and jeans. Several students have voiced their disapproval of this policy, claiming that it is a threat to their individuality and an attempt by the administration to eliminate non - conformists. They apparently feel that long hair and jeans constitute their individuality. Something is ob- viously wrong with their think- ing.

Individuality is certainly not based on the external. A person’s individual character should be judged by the values and opin- ions he upholds, not what he wears or looks like. Strictly speaking, then, everyone is an individual.

However, some people believe that by dressing differently they can better express their indivi- duality. They feel that a rebel- lion against prevalent societal values is necessary. This stand certainly can be justified, but is wearing long hair and jeans the proper way to express this feel- ing? This sort of action repre- sents a rather meaningless form of protest.

And this particular group of people, in their efforts to avoid being considered part of the mass of conformity, are failing to realize one point. They are set- ting up their own little world of *“protesters”—they are conform- ing to non-conformity. In other words, they are defeating their own purpose. By adopting a nega-

tive attitude these students are accomplishing very. little.

Of course there are people who wear long hair, messy beards and jeans solely because they are more comfortable that way. Whatever the reason for their dress, these students can- not be branded as hoodligans. However, they are, according to college regulations, not following the proper norms of dress for this campus.

These regulations certainly reprsent an infringement on the freedom of the students. Stud- ents have as much right to wear what they want as they have to say white is black and black is white. But this certainly doesn’t prove anything, especially their individuality.

But darling, Dean Young is absolutely correct, you do look like a horrid bum. Its perfectly nasty . . . image of the college and all that. . .

UGEQ Is Communist

Dear Sir:

I would like to congratulate the NEWS on last week’s en- lightened and most informative eartoon concering U.G.E.Q. The apparent nationalistic views of this Quebec student union do not especially irritate me, for, T too am a nationalist. However, from my investigation into the matter, I am of the opinion that U.G.E.Q. plans to betray French Canadian students. The appar- ent goal of U.G.E.Q. directors to form a sovereign French Canad- ian nation is false, Their real aim is a separate and NEUTRAL Quebec (like Switzerland) which would serve to advance com- munism in America. We can quickly conclude that the real aim is certainly not nationalism. I do not condone separatism but I consider it more important to stress the realism of this group.

U.G.E.Q. has many other un- worthy characteristics. Among others, it strongly advocates Marxism and at the same time, feels it is expressing the opinion of the majority of its student

members (not all its members are students!). However, the re- cent actions of a group of Uni- versité de Montreal students would lead me to believe the contrary,

Education is a provincial mat- ter, and rightly so. Consequent- ly, a provincial student union would be much more effective in obtaining aid for education. Loyola should participate in a provincial group but not ANY

‘group. At present, there is no

Quebec student group to join, only a communist oriented la- bour organization which takes students’ money to advance its traitorous aims!

J. B. MacLeod, President, Campus Creditistes.

Stamp Out Individuality

Dear Sir: :

I noticed recently that the ad- ministration has decided to ban the wearing of jeans and long hair. I would like to say at this point that I agree whole-hearted- ly with the steps taken by the administration, In fact, I even went out last night and burned all my pairs of jeans and cut my hair, After all, the purpose of college is not to produce in- dividuals, is it? Of course not! Its purpose is the mass produc- tion of narrow minded social maggots. What a marvellous op- portunity the administration has given us! Now every one of us can conform on campus and be better prepared to enter the fine conformist cubicles of society that

await us upon graduation. What a wonderful world this is going | to be!

A Distinct Difference

Dear Sir: In spite of what anyone may

the leaders of tomorrow, I am afraid that I shall never again |be able to forsee the attainment of this prediction.

Let me explain:

I was conversing with a friend the other day im one of Loyola’s “hallowed halls,” when I no- ticed a “gentleman” (revolting males, perverts, drunks, and all

tlemen) in skin tight pants (the type usually seen on _ ballet dancers) slithering towards us. He called out a greeting to jsomeone behind me of, “Hello | Beautiful.” As his tone was quite serious, I turned with some anti- cipation to see this beautiful specimen. And... (Vomit!) ... to my total revulsion and de- spair, I noticed that he was ad- dressing another MALE, whose hair was so long and effeminate- ly curled, and whose total de- portment was such that as they walked away, I could have sworn that “he” was the real thing. “Young swingers’ may hoot at me as being “square,” but if this is what is referred to as the

It is indeed.gratifying for a moderate (as opposed to apathetic) French Canadian to see our S.A.C. executive, with the consent of the Lower House, take a solitary and sensible stand vis-a-vis the U.G.E.Q.

It is about time Loyola recognize the role she can and should play in the vital field of trans-Canadian student relations.

This institution which has contributed much to student expres- sion, largely in the person of Patrick J. Kenniff, must assume the vital role which befalls it,

Loyola stands between two opposed poles of student opinion. Student compromise, which is essential if we are to retain the essence of Canadianism, must find its focal point in the policy of Loyola,

This brings out the importance of our future representatives. If they can, in some way, embody (as well as represent) the unique cross-section of our campus, they cannot help but succeed in this en- deavor.

This leads us to the fact that the S.A.C. must not only organize an efficient internal team; but it must also establish a consistent national policy.

The problem of consistency (continuity) is the weakest point of our representatives (past and present). This, you might say, is dif- ficult because of the early elections.

The Vice-President of External Affairs is, of course, the key to present, execute and formulate policy. The dilemma lies in the fact that he is usually in his graduating year and, (as has already occurred) his successor will probably never have met him.

If Loyola is to imitate and maintain a unique position, it must have the proper institutions to provide continuity. Is it not obvious that a team, under the tutelage of the External Vice-President and comprised of promising young juniors and sophomores be founded? Canada trains her new diplomats through the experience acquired by their predecessors. Although our Federal Government changes hands regularly, Canada’s Foreign policy has retained the element of continuity so vital to the respect accorded her in this sphere.

Permit me to reiterate the fact that prompted me to write. Loyola stands in a unique position, she has a great opportunity with-

in her grasp. If she acts accordingly, our country stands to benefit immensely.

‘Medea a classic

in contrast

Medea and the Nurse warm up in their respective roles. Janet Barkhouse plays Medea and Susan Mariani plays her nurse.

HE ‘Medea’ by Robinson

Jeffers is a free adaptation from the play by Euripides rather than just a literal trans- lation. The basis for any adapta- tion should be, and generally is, to develop new themes within the scope of the original form. Jeffers’ ‘Medea’ has done just this. While there is always pres- ent the elemental tragic sit- uation of the play’s protagonist, the play’s scope has radiated from the particular to the gen- eral. Medea’s hatred is no longer centered on the injustices of a few petty individuals but now razes an ignorant mankind whose idea of justice has become localized, self-centered and mean- ingless.

The colloquy of the play is still elegaic but is much less severe than its original classical style. Like the speech, the move- ment on stage is also flowing and rhythmetic. For this reason the choreography of the actors has to be given special consider- ation. It is ultimately this factor that will decide the fate of the performance. The correlative po- sitions of the players is such that movement will develop patterns of meaning correlative with the dialogue.

The Drama Society will pre- sent ‘Medea’ starting next Wed- nesday, Nov. 17, and ending the following Saturday, Nov. 20 in Loyola’s Main Auditorium start- ing at 8.30 p.m. The production is by Jim Brydges; direction, Walter Massey; and set and cos- tume design by Pat Carter.

Irish Poet's

Birthday

Celebrated

by Alice Niwinski

The Irish Ambassador to Canada spoke last week at the College’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of William Butler Yeats’ birthday. The program in henour of the Irish poet was organized with the assistance of the Depart- ment of External Affairs of Treland.

After Mr. Jonn Belton’s talk on Yeats, a film: “Yeats ambassador, a film: “Yeats Country,” was shown, The film produced by the Department, has won many awards at some of the most important fes- tivals in the world.

It shows the particular landscape and atmosphere of Ireland which may have in- pired certain lines of poetry by Yeats.

At an informal reception held in the Vanier Library, an exhibition of paintings by the poet’s brother, Jack Yeats, was shown.

Mr. Belton spoke of the life and works of Yeats. He declar- ed that Yeats was “not only a great national figure in Ierland, but one of the great- est poets of his time.”

Despite this, Mr. Belton, who “had the honour of meet- ing him four times” felt that there was no atmosphere of condescension or conceit about him. “He was good- leoking and charming.”

His Excellency discussed Yeats’ early life noting that the poet was “a man who never spoke a word of the Irish language.” Mr. Belton spoke of the people who in- fluenced the poet and his interest in the Irish Repub- ican Movement.

He said that although Yeats became involved in the Irish Revolutionary movement he did not take part in the rising of 1916, “The only weapons he used on behalf of Ireland was his inimitable pen.”

He pointed out that “Yeats will never go down in the records of Ireland as a great Trish hero or patriot.”

Mr. Belton noted that al- though “he was by nature very religious his religion was shattered by reading Huxley.”

He said that Yeats became a spiritualist and seriously be- lieved in Thesophry. Pointing to Yeats as an example, the ambassador warned youth against the dangers of read- ing Huxley.

One of the poet’s greatest contributions to Ireland, the ambassador felt, was in his work with the National Thea- ter. “The concept of the Na- tional Theater as it is now sheuld be attributed to Yeats.”

A Biblical Interpretation Of Football

The Bible says, “I tell you, it is easier for a camel to get through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to get into the Kingdom of ‘God’’ (Math. 19:24).

The sermon for this week concerns the essential actions that must be taken by an individual, or group of individuals, to permit him, or them, to achieve a fleeting moment of earthly bliss.

Of primary importance in a logically-constructed argument to discover ‘these actions is to ascertain first what is meant ‘by happi- ness. There are many possibilities: te a college professor, it’s a hungry class of coeds; ‘to a priest, it’s a vividly-descriptive confes- sion; or te .a student, it’s a barrel of beer. But these assumptions are heretical to any practicing Roman Catholic who attends a Jesuit institution.

For Loyola College students, most of whom are deeply-devoted Catholics, happiness cannot be found in any of the above mentioned grossly-empirical concepts. Happiness, as students soon realize when attending our blessed institution of education, is a winning football team. For the good St. Ignatius has gazed down meditatively at Loyola College for many a year from his heavenly throne but his faith in us has so far been fruitless.

The football Warriors’ chances for winning a championship may soon dwindle to those of the ships of the desert or the Rocke- fellers and Rothschilds if adequate measures are not taken to ensure a stronger team than this year.

Loyola’s long-standing tradition of top-flight athletic teams, ranging from the high school bantams to the College Varsity, de- | mands a winning team, not necessarily a championship squad but

at least one that continually poses as a threat to opposing aggrega- |

tions.

No matter what is finally said about the 1965 grid Warriors, and | certainly not enough praise can ever be lavished upon the defensive |

brigade which must have on at least ten oceasions this year pro- | duced dramatic goal line stands to keep the Warriors in close con- tention in their eight regularly-scheduled and exhibition contests, the 2-5 won-lost record posted by the team was most disappointing to the coaches, the players and, most importantly, to the fans who attended the games.

The measures that must be taken to improve the calibre of the team have undoubtedly dawned on Athletic Director Ed Enos who, | practically speaking, is responsible for the fortunes of the club. As |

an initial step all candidates for next season’s team have been|)

mandated to participate in ithe Athletic Department’s weight-train- ing program which begins this Monday.

Well and good. However, no matter to what extremity the War- riors are conditioned in preparation for the 1966 season, a few addi- | tional torsos should be recruited to strengthen the nucleus of the championship-ravished club.

There are many talented football players prowling the streets of many a city or town in Canada and the United States. Many are highly capable of maintaining college academic standards. What must be undertaken to fully exploit the talents of these wretched

lost souls who seek simply to salvage some extent of respectable ‘hu- |

manity in this world is to show them the Light. In this particular case ithe Light is Loyola College.

The lengthy interval between football seasons affords Enos and his staff adequate time ‘to search for these lost souls and bring them to Loyola. Many of the qualified candidates for higher education are dispossessed of this cherished wish solely through lack of finan- cial assets. They need only to behold Loyola’s credentials and then be convinced. At the same time they can contribute a vital action in aiding Loyolans to achieve happiness. Dominus Vobiscum.
