RUMOR HAS IT
THE LAURENTIAN ALTERNATIVE - NOVEMBER. 1973 - PAGE 2
ANOTHER GREAT VICTORY
On November 6th, our soccer team, the Laurentian Vees, travelled to York
for the OUAA finals. Laurentian played the best game of the year, beating out
York by a score of 2-1. The Laurentian marksmen were Mike Czerwince, Primo
Giannavei and Joe Shiraldi.
On November 9, 10 and 11, the Vees attended the CI All tournament in
St. John's, Newfoundland. On the first day, Laurentian emerged victorious over
Winnipeg with an overtime csore of 4-3. Fiorenzo Marin, Bob Ganko, Mike '
Czerwinec and Manuel Reis put Laurentian on the scoreboard. The outstanding
players wereB ob Ganko, Jean Gilbert and Fiorenzo Marin.
In the second game, held on the 10th, the Vees went down to defeat at the
hands of Alberta. It was the first game for Alberta. Coach Greg Zorbas said that
the whole team played well, however two mistakes resulted in Alberts's goals.
The third game was held on the 11th, and our Vees played Winnipeg for the
consolation title. Laurentian won by a score of 2-0, with goals coming from
Primo Giannavei and Jean Gilbert.
PHYS-ED DETERMINATION COMES THROUGH
In order for the Laurentian Vees to win the two soccer championships, they
had to play four games in six days. After a tough' game against York for the
OUAA, Laurentian had to travel back to Sudbury,, then back to Toronto and on
to St. John's for the tournament. Besides being tired from all their travelling and
having several injured players, the Vees were still able to pull off a fantastic victory
The Soccer Vees won 11 games, tied four and lost one out of the 16 games
they played. What is even more encouraging is that most of the Vees are eighe
first or second year students; they will only lose three players next year.

THORNELOE COLLEGE -
MEN'S AND WOMEN'S
As you may know, Thorneloe is
the only all male residence on
campus. In past years the
college has done well due to its
reputation as a college with few
restrictions. The suggestion that
women be initiated into the
residence stems from two basic
economic reasons. First of all,
the college is now experiencing a
26% vacancy rate. It was
proposed that by allowing women
intoThorneloe that the number of
potential students residents
would increase. Also, it has
become evident that, in order for
the college to compete with other
colleges on campus, facilities
must be upgraded. Direction
from the students and ad-
ministration is now focusing on
renovating the residence to make
all rooms into singles and to
upgrade kitchen and library
facilities. This might involve the
construction of a new ad-
ministrative wing which would
incorporate better lounge
facilities. As it now stands, ideas
for making Thorneloe a more
viable college are welcomed by
the Thorneloe Students' Council.
However, if these plans are
finalized and women are allowed
in them, it will seem strange to
hear guys say that they're going
up to Thorneloe to get their

FACULTY ACCLAMATIONS -
Recently, Dr. Jacob Hofstee,
Assistant Professor in the
Department of Physics, was
acclaimed to the Presidency of
the Laurentian University
Faculty Association. Dr. Hofstee
is also the Senior Don in

and in the area of Physics he is

TO THE STUDENTS
It is time that I voice my
opinion since I seem to be getting
more than my fair share of
First: ABOUT Therese Boutin,
our French Vice-President; she
has accused Malcolm and I of
taking away her powers,
especially concerning the signing
authority on cheques. Well, the
real story was that previously she
was the one with signing
authority and since Carl Nurmi
or Therese were not around for
important cheques that needed
attention immediately, Malcolm
asked me if he could transfer
signing authority to me, so I
accepted. The problem no longer
exists since all three executives
now have signing authority.
Secondly : there is a lot of fuss
about the fact that the executives
gave $1 of your $27 student fee to
Keep-Ten, which amounted to
$1800. Well, all we were trying to
do was give you the chance to at
least retreive part of your $27.
After all, if you didn't have Keep-
Ten cards, you would still pay $27
in student fees.
Another thing: everybody is
knocking us for spending $1800
without approval from Council.
Well, in case you are in?
tcrested, our powerless French
Vice-President ordered the
"Renee Claude Concert" without
my knowledge or Malcolm's
. knowledge, and not even the
social co-ordinator knew that the
S.G. A. had spent the sum of $1700.
She had signed the contract
herself without even a mention to
our council members. So from
now on, if you are going to knock,
knock all three members of the
S.G. A. English Vice-President
Well, we're off to a fast start in
the School of Translators this
year. We have the biggest
enrolment ever. Haven't you
noticed that every second person
you meet is a translator?
As the enrolment increases, the
school council is forever on the
move to keep abreast of the
changes necessary during the
year. They hope to keep us in-
formed and aware of what is
happening within the school. This
past weekend, a delegation of
council members and professors
from the school attended a
conference of the A.T.I.O. -
Association of Translators and
Interpreters of Ontario. There,
they discussed the present job
situation, training, working
conditions and many other
aspects oi translation and in-
terpretation in general.
On the lighter side of tran-
slation, there are the parties.
The first party of the year, the
Beerand Pizza Bash, was a great
success. We will have, in ' the
near future, a Wine and Cheese
Party for Translators only. We
hope* that all translators .will
come out and meet the others in
the school. Later on in the year,
the School of Translators hopes to
sponsor a dance.
We are growing but we're still
small. So remember, it's Be Kind
to Translators Year!
RECORDS SET STRAIGHT
It is nice to hear that the S.G. A.
now has a new accounting
system. Thanks should go to
Malcolm Jacobs for his efforts in
'designing the new system.
Perhaps now, financial
statements of the S.G. A. will
reflect the true financial situation
instead of over-inflated assets
Let us hope that the next
executive in office has enough on
the ball to insure that the ac-
counting records are kept
straight in the future.
On Friday, November 23,
University College Students'
Council will sponsor a dance in
the Great Hall. Admission is only
$1.00, so come on out and enjoy
the sounds of BURGANDY.

IS IT A FREE PRESS?
The By-Laws of the SGA state: "It shall be thepolicy of Lambda Publications to
grant FREE advertising to the student councils, official clubs and the SGA. The amount of
space allotted to such advertising will be at the discretion of the editor of Lambda".
Since the size of the ad is at the discretion of Mr. Bill Scandlan presently, he has
decided that the size of the ads should be non-existent.
Is this the meaning of a "free press"?
We realize that the editor has the right to set editorial policy; and ee should have
that right. However, when Laurentian students can no longer voice their opinion, or no longer
want to submit an article because the editor either misprints or neglects to print the article,
then the meaning of a free press can be questioned.
A free press should mean the right to print any opinion or view that Laurentian
students may have, whether that opinion is right or wrong. However, reading Lambda gives
the impression that there is only one viewpoint on this campus. Should we all be subjected
to the viewpoint of a handful of students? Should our graduate students not have the pleasure
of seeing something other than Mr. Slawny's picture? Surely there must be more to a news-
paper than that.
As it is now, you pay $4 of your student fees to support such a free press. Are we
to assume that this handful of students reflect the opinion of all Laurentian students? If they
do, we are at the wrong university.
Bill Scandlan, Lambda Editor
What Other Universities
Moit other universities have formed boards of directors or boards of
publications comprised of a cross-section of student representatives so that all
groups on their campus have an opportunity to voice an opinion.
However, in our situation. Lambda is controlled by Lambda, They
report to no one but themselves, Presently Lambda elects their own editor, and
since very few^ students went to go near the place or even associate with Lambda,
there is no opportunity for any Laurentian student to do something about the
newspaper the students pay so dearly for.
All councils, including the SGA, have a cross-section of representatives to
guarantee all rights of all students. But whet about Lambda? Could we not
learn from the experiences of other universities? Hopefully, when the SGA
council meets it will implement a structure for the benefit of alt Laurentian

\JJ KEEP-TEN EXPLAINED
In 1969 an honors essay was
done on student spending for our
department of economics at
Laurentian. It was compiled and
analysed in 1971. it provided for
us figures on how much each of us
spends on the average and on
what types of things. It allows us
to come up with some realistic
figures on how much students
spend, in particular on the goods
and services which Keep-Ten has
enabled Sudbury students to get
The mean saving potential was
$81 for the eight-month period in
68-69. Allowing for inflation and
an increase in the type and
number of stores in the Keep-Ten
service, a new realistic potential
per person is in the
neighbourhood of $100 saving per
year on Keep-Ten. Consideration
on this $100 figure must be given
or made for a 50-50 ratio of
students spending in chain stores
and small locally owned and
operated stores. Also we must
make allowance for sales as
Keep-Ten applies to regular
priceditems. For example, let us
say that 50% of the items sold in
the city are on sate; then with a
Keep-Ten student card, you can
save $25. by using the service.
This is the first time in S.G.A.
history that an opportunity for
the students to save money, has
been provided at no additional
cost or increase in fees. Five
other Universities are con-
sidering the same idea.
Laurentian is in the lead, and
Keep-Ten is leading the drive to
get studentsdtscounts at the local
levels. It would be great if
students could get discounts on
anything in any city, simply by
presenting a Keep-Ten Student
On drug stores we have ap-
proached four, on movies the
same and found in both cases,
that control is a long ways away.
We would need 10,000 members to
have any degree of success in
dealing with these corporations.
Presently, the S.G.A. Sunday
night movies are the best priced
in town and some of the upcoming
ones are quite 'good.
Wouldn't it be fantastic if the
energies of our newspaper staff
could be turned constructively to
getting discounts for students.
For example, discounts are
presently being negotiated at
Coles book Store, Sally Shops and
Dominion Hardware stores. All
that is needed to influence these
stores to participate is to be able
to show them that the students
have taken advantage of the
Keep-Ten student card. With our
newspaper adopting a new ap-
proach, it could lead the students
to bargain and it could be in a
good position to produce ad-
vertising revenue to help defray
the costs of our newspaper. Let
me suggest, that perhaps a
weekly Keep-Ten column would
be of service to the students.
It is interesting to note that

A few weeks ago the fourth year geography
class attended the North Eastern Ontario
Planning Conference in Elliot Lake. The con-
ference itself was understandably cut and dried
us most of the speakers attending were from
government agencies and they all wanted to
teach each other "comprehensive planning."
1 1 owever, as a representative of the Department
of Treasury, Economics and Intergovernmental
Affairs (TEIGA) stated, "the reason for at-
tending a conference of this nature is not
necessarily to learn something new about
planning but to meet the different government
representatives on a common ground and to
informally discuss problems of the planning
process." The L.U. geographers realized this
point in planning for the trip to Elliot Lake and
accordingly brought appropriate quantities of
booze with them. A student group from Waterloo
University (mostly masters students) 'also at-
tended the conference, however their demeanor
was much more subdued than Laurentian's. In
fact, they were boring. Despite repeated
gestures of goodwill from the L.U. geographers,
t he Waterloo group would not let their hair down.
One delegate from Waterloo, however, was
pleased by the friendliness of the Laurentian
students and asked the chairman of the
Laurentiangeography department, A.A. Lupton,
if he could finish his masters degree at L.U. as he
liked the spirit of the Laurentian students .better
than his Waterloo cronies (which says a lot for
the Geography Department at L.U. as the
Waterloo school of urban and regional planning
is purported to be one of the best in North
America.) It was also learned from this delegate
that the entire supply of booze in his group
amounted to a six-pack of beer (a sampler).
However, it is not the intention of this article to
advocate drunkeness at planning conferences,
rather to merely point out that there is a time
and a place for everything.
It can be seen that the giant of urban and
regional planning is not fulfilling sound ob-
jectives: i) to teach comprehensive planning
(reflected by a paucity of booze), and ii) to
thereby promote proper informal discussion
which is necessary for good governmental Uason
a t planning conferences. From this discussion it
can be seen that there is a direct correlation
between booze and bullshit.

... A Dead End?
The bottom floor of the new Single Students' Residence is
called Student Street. This whole section has space allocated
for small businesses and students' recreational areas. So far,
the grocery store is in operation as well as the new snack bar.
These businesses are owned and operated by McCullagh-Hall
(Vending Machines) Ltd. For a short while we had a clothing
in the space allocated for our campus shop (which was
operated by the owner of WIr. Legs Pant Shop). However,
due to circumstances beyond his control he vacated the
premises. Now Student Street stands empty except for the
two businesses mentioned above.
WHY WAS IT CREATED?
Originally, the students as well as administration wanted a
permanent section allocated for students' affairs and recrea-
tional areas. The trend in other universities to create
a permanent student area initiated Laurentian planners to
follow suit. However, since planning at the university has
changed drastically in view of lower enrolment than fore-
casted and since the new Library facilities were no longer
feasible (where a student campus centre was proposed), it
was decided to compromise and create Student Street in the
new Single Students' Residence.

The former SGA council and executive members had decided
upon the plan, which is illustrated in this article. However,
the proposed space allocations are not presently being
followed. Administration has decided against moving the
bank to the new premises. Their reasoning is that it would be
too far for faculty and administrative employees to walk. On
the other hand, the SGA does not want to relocate to the
proposed offices in Student Street. Presently, it seems un-
likely that the music listening room will ever come about.
So far, it seems, the proposed areas will have to be completely
changed to meet the new demands created by the students'
desires to have a better located area.
WHAT ARE THE STUDENTS DOING ABOUT IT?
A residence committee was formed back in October which
has decided upon the furniture for the two main lounges, or
3; you would have them called -- recreational rooms. One is
located in Student Street and one is in the Married Students'
Hi-Rise. Recently the SGA has formed a management com-
mittee comprised of five students to decide what to do with
the space available. This committee has a $34,000 fund
(which will come from the government) to provide furnishings
and equipment for the recreational araes only. So fa.r,, the
different student organizations on campus have literally
accomplished nothing.. The SGA, naturally, blames admini-
stration for its inability to provide a solution to our Student
Street problems. .
IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR STUDENT STREET?
If the recent accomplishments of administration are any
indication of what is to come, then "Student Street" will
become just a "Dead-End Street". Student Street is
definitely a needed service to all students on campus . . . but
if everyone is just interested in passnig the buck then you,
the students, must act. After all, it is your Student Street.
AS AN AVERAGE STUDENT,
WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?
First of all, bug your council members, especially the SGA
council membersand executive. Let administration know that
something must be done and that excuses are passe. Take
time out and write to Mr. Hennessy and let him know what
you want to see* in Student Street. You'll be surprised to
find out that the power of public opinion really does make
WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION DOING ABOUT IT?
Presently, Student' Street operations are under the direction
of Mr. T.L. Hennessy, Director of Services. This summer,
the food committee (comprised of Mr. Hennessy, Dr. Jake
Hofstee, Roger Campeau, Amy Klighen, Mike McWade, Steve
Kelly and Malcolm Jacobs) decided to accept the bid of
McCullagh-Hall Ltd. to operate the grocery store and snack
bar in Student Street. So far, other than ordering furniture
for the two main lounges by the residence committee,
administration seems to be waiting for committees to be
formed before proceeding further with Studont Street. In
view of the fact that the university will stand to lose a
considerable amount of money by not having Student Street
in full operation, it seems hard to justify their inability to
start-moving (and you know what ! mean by that).

OYER 500 MARCH FOR PUB
Over 500 Laurentian University students rallied at Memorial Park to indicate their support of the Nag's
Head Pub, Despite cold weather and an indefinite threat from the Sudbury Police Department to arrest the
. leaders of such a, demonstration, the large group paraded about the war memorial and listened to speakers
over a PA system for about an hour before returning to campus. The rally received extensive coverage
from the news media. ■ photo: wood

NAG'S HEAD - CUL DE SAC
How many of you recognize the
three names headlining this
article? Not many for sure-as
you would have to have been at
Laurentian since 1967 to know
them all. They are the various
names that the "University Pub"
has had on campus since it's
inception. Booze on campus was
a "nc-no" in the early days
(students not thought capable -of
handling both studies and liquor)
whereas, nowadays, almost
every University campus has a
"Pub" of some sort; where all
can enjoy relief from the stresses
and strains of "constant study."
We have come a long way from
the days when beer was sold once
a week in the Lower cafeteria
(usually warm) considering,
today we have modern facilities,
a permanent location, plus en-
tertainment 4 nights a week, all,
may I add, at the lowest prices in
town. Today we tend to take all
this for granted- but on looking
back, we should be aware of the
hard work ( often done behind the
scenes) and progressive attitudes
of our former students, ad-
ministration and local politicians
who made it all possible. After
all, we are the beneficiaries. I'm
sure they would enjoy the system
we now run- the results of their
So what of today's "pub", can It
be improved? Is it serving the
demands of the campus? Or is it
just another front for an S.G.A.
money-making concern? These
are the questions most often
asked by students on and off
CAN IT BE IMPROVED? The
answer to this question, as with
any venture is yes. At the present
time, we occupy an area that was
never meant to be a "pub".
Security of the establishment is
poor, due to it's location,
washroom facilities are separate
from the drinking area, which
make\control most difficult All
liquor and beer stock are stored
away from the "pub" due to lack
of space. Tlie storage room is in
an area where deliveries are
inconvenient to suppliers through
their inaccessibility. Inventory
control is therefor more difficult
to conduct These all amount to
added costs when running a
"pub". The general atmosphere
of "Le Voyageur" is hardly one
expects to find in a water hole. It
seems more suited for a hospital
(black & white walls), acoustics
are poor, lighting mediocre, plus
general overcrowding, bad
ventilation and small dance floor
complete the picture. However,
it is fair to say that, after seeing
many other campus "Pubs",
Laurentian has to be one of the
best. Believe it.
IS "LE VOYAGEUR" SERVING
THE DEMANDS OF THE
In running a "Pub" one has to
respect the vast different
demands of the campus mem-
bers. All people have various
tastes in music, decor hours of
operation and above all-prices.
How come there's no heaven this
year? Why 25* for pop? Why do
we have to check our coats? Why
do we close the "pub" at 12 on
Monday to Thursday? I could go
on and on!! But wait. We are
really making a serious attempt
to serve you. . .our customers, to
the best of our ability. E.g. en-
tertainment of a broad scope is
provided-Rock bands, brass
sounds, country folk, easy
listening combos-plus two nights
a week with no music at all, for
the people who like to sit and
chat. Also, remember that
Wednesday through Saturday, 4
p.m. till closing, only two hours is
taken up by live entertainment
Hours of operation, 4 p.m. is our
opening time (except Sat), a
deliberate late start to avoid
clashes with classes! Through
the week, we close at midnight
again with tomorrows studies in
PRICES . . . Presently, the
pricesareasfollows: 40* for beer
and 65* for liquor for Monday and
Tuesday 4 p.m. to midnight
These low prices stay in effect
from 4 p.m. till 8 p.m. everyother
night except Saturday. The rest
of the time, prices go up in order
to pay for our operation. For all
Laurentian students, faculty and
administration, there is no ad-
mission fee. We extend the same
privilege to Cambrian and other
Universities on presentation of
I.D. cards. Guests pay $1 or 50*
according to the cost of the en-
tertainment that week. These
prices are fair, and also a
necessity in order to pay our
operation and keep the L.C.B.O.
happy with their "levies".
LEVIES . . . Since May 1973,
anyone selling "beverages"
through Special Occasion Per-
mits ( $15. a day) must also pay $1
per case of 24 beer, $1 per bottle
of wine and $1.50 per 40 oz. of
liquor as an added levy to the
Province. The idea of this levy
was to bring a fairer balance in
the taxes paid on beverages sales
by permanent licences and
special occasion permits users.
Before the levies were in-
troduced, the full time pubs were
paying for more taxes than we
were. This was unfair and we
should have no qualms on the
introduction of the levy system.
However, it is quite an added
expense in the running of the
"pub" when yop consider that on
an average, we sell 120 cases of
beer a week plus 36 bottles of
liquor-weekly levies totalling
$120 & $54 equalling $174 a week.
HEAVEN in the "pub" (25*
beer & 35* liquor) went out when
levies were introduced. Maybe
Heaven can be held one or two
times a year, but as a regular
daily feature, it's just not
feasible. Same thing applies to
the price of our former 10* pop.
Pop is sold at the price of 23*
because all our profits come from
liquor and beverage sales, which
in turn pay for the whole
operation. If people come to see
our expensive entertainment,
they should pay their share
towards the cost whether they
are drinking pop or booze.
COAT CHECKS prove to be "a
pain" for many of our students,
but a necessary evil. E.g. liquor
can easily be brought in when
wearing a coat, and yes, even-
weapons, etc., etc., Plus,
imagine the "pub" when full of
coats, jackets, on the arm of
every chair, on the floor or
tables-chaos! -theft-damage to
clothing. The coat check is run
with your interest and comfort in
Most studeats had realized by
Thursday what was happening. The
rally was illegal and to march meant
police action against the demonstr-
ators. A ditto-sheet circulated ab-
out the campus informed everyone
of the situation. As the sheet said,
we are getting the "Royal Run
Around" from city officials. How-
ever, the committee organizing the
•rally felt that plans should proc-
eed despite these conditions. Const-
ant announcements from the booth
urged everyone to go up to tne ore-
at Hall where J.D.Lamont was to
officially Inform students of the
situation. There was some hesit-
ation but around 12:30 p.m. the
the upper dining hall was filled with
students, both standing and sitting.
Even then students were cautious
of their action for most of them
stood quietly and listened. Howev-
er after the four college presidents
spoke in favour of the Nag's Head,
students began to applaud. When
JD asked those who were in favour
of going to the rally, most of the
students stood up.
Although buses were ready to take
students to Memorial Park, many
piled into their own cars and drove
out there. Within a half an hour,
there were over 500 students march-
ing around Memorial Park crying
"We want the Nag's Head" and car-
rying posters with "Up with the
Nag's Head" and " God drinks".
Once again the presidents of the
four colleges informed the students
of the true purpose.
There was something lacking at
the rally — no police. Careful obser-
vation revealed that one was hiding
behind a window in the Canadian Le-
gion building, two cars were parked
at the north end of the park, and
still another was parked near the
lights on the west side, they did not
Students were becoming more and
more excited. They were ready to
march on the' city. In fact a line
was already formed and had started
to move toward Durham Street but
was called back. The demonstrators
disappointed and felt that they should
have marched anyway. Both Eli Mar-
tel and Rev. Colin Clay convinced
the students that it would be far
better to remain in the park area.
"You have shown that you are re-
sponsible people by staying in the
park", said Eli Martel. Shortly
afterward, the rally broke up and
the students returned to the campus.
CKSO, a free lancer for the CBC,
and the Sudbury Star were on hand
to give the news coverage of the
Public reaction to the rally was
not fully known until the following
day. At first people phoning into
CKSO's Open Line program were
strongly against an on campus pub.
However by the end o' the program,
the majority of the calls supported
the Nag's Head. Bob Alexander, the
dj doing the. show, rarely indicates
his opinion on any issue. This time
however he seemed to support the
students in their demands. Dean Er-
win of the Sudbury Star also sup-
ported the students in an editorial
in the Sudbury Star.
The Nag's Head Committee and
most of the campus community wai-
ted anxiously for word from *he Bo-
ard of Governors meeting. However
at the time of Duplication no of-
ficial word was given to anyone as
to the outcome of the meeting.
The Board of Governors met in-
formally later with Interested stu-
dents and committee members in
the Tornloe residence. Other than
polite conversation, no news con-
senting the Board's decision was
The Rev. Colin Clay addressed the
rally when it seemed as though
the 500 students would march en-
mass through Sudbury to the Court
House. The Police Department had
been ordered to allow the rally in
the park,but to move in and stop
any attempt to march through the
downtown section. photo:Wood.
President Lamont, although warned
by Sudbury Police Officials that
leaders of a rally would be arr-
ested and prosecuted accordingly,
led the rally to the park. No pol-
ice action occured. Apparently the
police had no power to prevent
an orderly assembly from gathering
in the park. Lamont was not aware
of this until after the rally.

Lauren tian University's
Women's basketball team is off to
a great start this year with the
return of our 10 veterans. The
return of Kathy Williams, a
member of Canada's National
Team and a member of the 1973
FISU Games Team will be a
definite asset. Kathy's in-
ternational experience and
scoring power will be invaluable.
The team's experience and
scoring power will also be
enhanced by Pat Smith a 5' 11"
centre in her fourth year with the
team. Rebounding strength will
be supplied by Sue Swain, Laura
Mattson-a previous OUIAA
champion in javelin and Donna
Roman, who has turned to
basketball full time. All three are
tall, aggresive girls who can ?****
Another great bonus for the
team this year is the addition of
Mr. Norman Vickerey to the
coaching staff. Norm comes to
Laurentian with an impressive
record. His most recent ac-
complishment includes coaching
the 1973 Canadian Women's FISU
Games team and coaching the
UBC Thunderettes to three
consecutive CWIAU basketball
The emphasis this year will be
on conditioning and consistant
defense. With the dedication and
persistance displayed in
preseason training it would
appear that the team has an
excellent chance of bringing the
OWIAA title to Laurentian.

VOLLEYBALL VEES SHOW PROMISE
The men's volleyball team has
a good chance of making the
playoffs for the first time in five
years. Coach Lefroy reported
"The team has made tremendous
progress in the past three weeks.
If they continue to improve at the
same rate we could pick off,
second place in the Eastern
division of the OUAA. I had not
expected this to occur as we lost
three .starters trom last years
The success of the team
depends on the spiking and
blocking of players such as Larry
Bacon, Greg Alton, Don
MacKinnon and Roman
The team has changed its of-
fensive and defensive systems.
During the first half of the season
the team will base its offense on
power hiring by Bacon, Alton,
MacKinnon and Baumann.
According to Coach Lefroy, the
key to victory lies in the defen-
siveplayof the team. If the team
establishes a strong block and
plays good backcourt defense
they will be a contender. Said
Coach Lefroy, "Our offense will
take care of itself. We can hit
with anyone in the league. Our
serving will be better than any
other teams. We must be better
than any other teams. We must
play * good defense and con-
centrate on eliminating
mistakes. It really boils down to
the need to win. If the players -

'PUB" - BILL 146 (CONTINUED)
important piece of legislature to
concern operations of University
& College pubs for some time.
Essentially, it says that all
places where beverages are to be
consumed, must come in line
with the existing legislature
contained in the Liquor Licence
Act. Let's fact it, we have been in
a privileged position for a long
time on campuses. Once "weekly
pubs" were given the official nod,
they blossomed like crazy. Now
many campuses have 6 nights a
week operations, plus regular
dances, plus the famed
"residence hideaway". What
were at the onset special occasion
permits, now have become to all
intents and purposes regular
licenses. The L.L.B.O. have been
more than co-operative with us,
as have the Hotel & Restaurant
Association, local police, Ad-
ministration & public at large.
But now, it seems certain slept
- have to be taken to control
drinking on campuses.
Bill 146 requires (in effect) that
blanket licences be obtained by
the Universities in the name of
the President or chief ad-
ministrator for all areas where
beverages are to served. Each
room or area on campus must
meet with L.L.B.O. and the
department of Health
Regulations, and proper
equipment be installed. You
name it, they've got it in this new
Once the effect of this new bill
were realized. The University
and College pub managers got
together to hash it over. A
Steering Committee was formed
of 4 full time managers (I am one
of them) and we quietly but ef-
fectively made the appropriate
contacts with politicians,
University administrators and
the L.L.B.O. to clarify points of
As 1 see it, Bill 146 is a
progressive piece of legislation.
It is not meant to cut us off. It is
designed to * protect the
University operations and it's
customers. In this University,
negotiations have commenced
toward the goal of obtaining a
"Blanket licence" for our use.
Once the licence is obtained, the
administration may ask agents to
administer it on their behalf- i.e.
food caterers, S.G.A., and things
will continue as before, BUT on a
more strick "legal" basis. We
should be aware of the attempts
to accommodate our wishes and
the good faith of the parties in-
volved. IT IS NOT A SNOW JOB.
Of course, we will have to have
a well run urbanization to be
classed as a suitable "agent" to
supervise the University's
licence. I. think we have proved
by past records that we are
competent, but we must improve.

NOVEMBER, 1973 - PAGE 1 1
Trip to Guyana, South America
The International Students' Organization
has accepted the invitation of the "Experiment
in International Living" (Guyana branch) to
pay an official visit during Study Break, which
happens to take place at the same time as the
country's Fourth Republic Celebration.
The purpose behind the whole visit is that
of a cultural exchange between Laurentian
University and the University of Guyana, both
of which are about the same age. It is hoped
that a return visit may be made by Guyanese
students in October, 1974 during International
It is expected that the Laurentian delega-
tion would carry messages of goodwill from
Sudbury to Georgetown on behalf of the Sud-
bury Regional Government, the Chamber of
Commerce, service clubs and cultural organiza-
tions. The five executive members of the ISO
would like Laurentian University to be repre-
sented by a delegation of members of the Inter-
national Students' Organization, plus faculty
and administration. Someone will also repre-
sent the Students' General Association.
Arrangements for free billeting are being
made by the "Experiment in International
Living" in Guyana. Its president, Donald
Trotman, Barrister-at-Law, who is also president
of the Guyana Kiwanis Club, president of the
United Nations Association in Guyana and
director-general of the Guyana Institute of
International Affairs, is expected in Sudbury in
The group should be staying 10 to 14 days in
Georgetown, taking in the events of the Repub-
lic Celebrations, with an opportunity to visit the
surrounding areas, the university, sugar and rice
estates, bauxite mining, Amerindian settlements,
and other aspects of Guyanese culture.
Application forms will be available from the
offices of Dr. Edelgard Mahant, Political Science
Department, and Dr. Graeme Mount, History
Department. Applications are to be considered
by a selection committee, comprised of faculty,
administration, SGA and ISO members. Appli-
cants must submit their applications, a cheque
for $50 made out to the International Students'
Organization Exchange Fund. This deposit will
be refundable in cases, where applicants are not
accepted by the committee. Deadline is 4 p.m.,
Friday, November 30th.
THE EXPERIMENT is an international learning experience.
The program is the result of 40 years of actual experiment
in intercultural relations and exchange. "Know it like it is"
might be the present day description of living and learning
"The Experiment way". Living as a member of a family in a
foreign country is the basic learning experience provided by
The Experiment. Travel, discussions, seminars and social
life with your "brothers and sisters" and "mother and
father" make up the regular group programs. In addition,
programs are provided for special interest groups and
individuals such as Youth Ambassadors, language students,
trainees and professional groups. Orientation and evaluation
by Experiment trained leaders keep Experiment programs
personal experiences of depth and meaning — true educa-
Specifically, an Experiment program offers you:
— a program comprising from 7 - 45 days
— orientation — a three-daycourse on how to ease the
transition from one culture to another.
— a homestay - 7 to 28 days living as a member of a
host family abroad
— travel • one or two weeks of seeing your host
country through the eyes of new friends
— work, study or other special features'- often part
of, or in heu of, tne travel period
— trained leaders for special groups
— possible academic credit, in language and/or area
studies, if approved by local education authorities
— career incentive: Training for the Diplomatic and
Foreign Service or careers in International Affairs.
Qualifications for Membership
Of primary interest to The Experiment's Admissions
Committee is whether an applicant can adapt himself to a
variety of situations, including those which may be physi-
cally or psychologically uncomfortable, and whether he can
make the homestay experience as satisfying for his hosts as
The Experiment is interested in applicants who show
evidence of initiative, curiosity, and an eagerness to learn;
who have participated in many kinds of activities; who
demonstrate a faculty for getting along well with others,
2nd who have achieved a satisfactory academic record.
An Experiment commences as soon as an applicant is
accepted for membership, when he begins to receive
informational bulletins, immunization requirements, cloth-
ing lists, transportation arrangements and a selected bibli-
ography and description of the country to be visited.
Shortly, before embarkation, each participant receives the
names and addresses of his fellow group members and of his
leader. An Experiment leader is specially qualified to help
each participant gain the most from his summer's experi-
Three days prior to departure, each group is involved in a
series of discussions designed to help group members
anticipate some of the challenges they are apt to encounter
including "cross-cultural strain", its causes, symptoms and
remedies. The sessions are informal and will utilize
dialogues, roleplays, skits and films, to prepare participants
for a new culture.
The Experiment seeks to send abroad young Canadians who
can communicate in the language of the. host country.
Therefore, language requirements have been established and
emphasis is placed upon oral fluency. Not all countries
require this qualification.
Host families generally receive no Compensation for their
hospitality beyond the satisfaction derived from making a
personal contribution to international understanding and
the hopes of developing new friendships.
The opportunity of living with a family for one month,
sharing its everyday activities, is basic to, and the most
important single ingredient of every Experiment. Experi-
menters are not guests, expecting to be catered to and
entertained. They expect, instead, to become a functioning
member of their family circle abroad.
The result is a deeper understanding of another country,
admiration for its people, lifelong friendships and a whole
new idea of the world • and of yourself.
The Travel Period
The travel period is the Experimenter's opportunity to
repay in some measure the generous hospitality he has
received, for a member of each host family usually becomes
a guest of the group. These trips share in common the
unrivaled advantage of exploring a country through the
eyes of its nationals. The Experiment Way, is not the easy
way of plush seats and insulated compartments; it is the
way to deeper insights, expanded knowledge and lasting

consisting of less than 10. Information and application
forms may be obtained from the National Office.
Individual Homestay Program
The Experiment is able to arrange some individual home-
stays and is especially interested in assisting students to
become accustomed to customs and cultural patterns of
community life before entering upon a course of study or a
work program in a foreign country. The Experiment will
select a host family; the individual is responsible for his
own travel arrangements. Orientation and evaluation is
required. It may take 2 or 3 months to process an
Elect a Special Feature
In many countries - as part of the travel period, in place of
it, or even in conjunction with the homestay - one can
work, study or elect some other special program feature.
One can take on a work project in Mexico or Ghana, hike
through the Swiss Alps, or share life with students while
enrolled in a handicraft course in Sweden.
City Stay and Independent Travel
At the conclusion of the travel period, the group often
returns to the homestay community for a final reunion and
farewell party. The four or five remaining days of the
program are generally spent in a city of major interest. This
period may be used for independent travel at personal
expense by Experimenters who qualify by age and have the
prior written permission of their parents. Members receiving
scholarship assistance are not eligible for independent

integral part of the program. All Experimenters are expect-
ed to contribute by completing questionnaires and submit-

— health and accident insurance
— food, lodging, travel, transfers and baggage handling

The Experiment in Canada publishes most programs
without transportation fares included. Over the past two
years transportation fares have experienced very radical
fluctuations and air lines have been reluctant to quote
prices too far in advance. The Experiment in Canada does
not operate charters for its membership but we do work
with bona fide air lines to get the cheapest rates possible for
our members • group rates, excursion fares and youth fares,
whenever possible. However, persons using youth fares wilt
receive confirmation of flight only seven days before
departure, and even then arrangements are only on a
standby basis. Perhaps with the new ruling on charters. The
E.I.L. will be able to book groups on charters if a full group
is formed 90 days before the departure date.
