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. 


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 
for Laurentian. 

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.

Among other things, It's a little house in Toronto that is 
the rock bottom place to buy travel. AOSC stands for the 
Association of Student Councils— a non-profit organization 
owned and operated by the student bodies of 50 Canadian 

As a foreign student, who may be thinking about visiting 
Canada, or as a Canadian student thinking about going 
somewhere sometime, you are eligible for all kinds of 
special privileges and services you probably don't know 

AOSC's principal function is to make available to students 
the best, most economical travel arrangement possible. 
The Idea Is to provide a service, not make a buck. You're 
offered the lowest dependable air fares available within 
North America and abroad. AOSC can transport you almost 
anywhere at incredible discounts often as low as 1/4 to 
1/2 the regular cost. 

Say you want to fly Toronto — Hong Kong or Bangkok return. 
A normally routed ticket would take you westward for 
about $1200. AOSC can fly you the long way through Europe 
for slightly more than $600. In Canada, AOSC can tell you 
how to get from Toronto to the Pacific by rail for $45 or 
how you can drive west In a drive-away car for the price 
of the gasoline. And we can also provide you with 
addresses where you can sleep along the way for 50 cents a

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

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 
University College Residence 
and in the area of Physics he is 
actively involved in ionospheric 


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

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! 


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 
and profits. 

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. 

S.G. A. "Pub": Open Monday 
and Tuesday, 4 - 12 p.m., no en- 
tertainment; Wednesday, 
Thursday, and Saturday with 

Rock Concert with WARPIG, 
Saturday, November 24, at 8.00

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.

What Other Universities 

Are Doing 

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

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 
discounts on. 

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 

Things to say

- Don't mind if I do. 

- Sure. Why not? 

- Well, if you insist. 

- As long as you're having one. 

- Yes, please. 

- Get me a cold one. 

- No, thanks. I've got one.

Do you know what you're missing? 

close to 75% of our students can 
benefit from 3porting good 
purchased at Demarco's with 
Keep-Ten. Only 2S% qualify 
under Demarco's special, team 
sport participation program. 
Admittedly, Cortina pizzas are 
good, and anyone who eats more 
than one qualifies for* a volume 
discount, but most of us will 
continue to eat only one at a time 
and will be eligable for 10% off 
with Keep-Ten. Please, before 
November 30, drop into Cortina 
Martindale and take advantage 
of K-10. Cortina also gives free 
delivery to residence at L.U. but 
cannot on top of this give an 
additional 10%. 

The survey of students ex- 
penditures is available at the 
S.G.A. office as are updated store 
lists. Please feel free to drop in.

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.

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. 


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. . 


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. 


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 
things happen. 


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).

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

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 
magnificent efforts. 



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 

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. 



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 

BILL 146 

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 
intervene. ' 

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.

ISA Pilm Series 

2 Showings 6*30 & 9 p.m. C 114 


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.

Novel The ReiversC is now a film! 


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 - 
(eel the need to win, we will".

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 
mutual concern. 

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.

One afternoon a big wolf waited in a dark 
forest for a little girl to come along carrying 
a basket of food to her grandmother. Finally a 
little girl did come along, and she was carrying 
a basket of food. "Are you carrying that basket 
to your grandmother?" asked the wolf. 'The 
little girl said yes, she was. So the wolf 
askoc her where her grandmother lived, and the 
little girl told him, and he disappeared into 
the wood. 

When the little girl opened the door of her 
grandmother's house, she saw that there was 
somebody in bed with a nightcap and nightgown 
on.' She had approached the bed when she saw 
that it was not her grandmother but the wolf, 
for even in a nightcap a wolf does not look any 
more like your grandmother than Santa Claus 
looks like the Easter Bunny. So the little girl 
took an automatic out of her basket and shot Che

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 
late November. 

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 
for himself. 

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. 
Language Instruction 

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. 

The Homestay 

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 

group leader wilt pay a pro rata amount for a group 
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 


The evaluation at the end of the summer's experience is an 
integral part of the program. All Experimenters are expect- 
ed to contribute by completing questionnaires and submit- 
ting reports. 

Group Leadership 

Each group of from ten to twelve Experimenters 'is led by a 
competent person, usually a college or secondary school 
teacher or graduate student carefully selected by The 
Experiment and trained for his responsibilities. 
Interested persons must complete an application form and 
be interviewed by Experiment personnel. Candidates must. 
show — 

1. (a) Maturity, emotional balance, have experience in 
group leadership and living, and skill in working with young 
people; (b) a wide range of interests and accomplishments. 

2. Language fluency, and previous experience in living with 
families abroad is considered. 

3. Demonstrate an active desire to promote international 

4. Attend an Experiment training session. 
Potential group leaders are encouraged to assist the Experi- 
ment in completing the group by recruiting group members. 
For a full group of 10 the leader has all expenses paid. The 


The Program Fee — The fee for each country covers: 

— orientation 

— health and accident insurance 

— food, lodging, travel, transfers and baggage handling 
during the entire program 

— membership fee 

— the administration cost of the program. 


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. 

The Graduated Payment Plan 

l.The Graduated Payment Plan allows members to 
meet the cost of a program by paying for it over a 
period of months. This plan is subject to the 
following regulations. 

2. Subscription to this monthly payment plan in- 
volves NO extra cost to that of the regular price of 
the program. 

3. You have Only to send us the required deposit 
accompanied by post-dated cheques covering the 
balance due. These cheques should all be for the 
same amount and dated the 1st of each month 
following registration, up to and including 
September 1. 1973. 

4. This plan does not exclude the member's right to 
full reimbursement in the case of cancellation, 
except for the non-refundable sum of S10.00. 

5. The Experiment reserves the right to refuse any 
person's participation in the plan, should it feel 
that such action is justifiable. 

6. All those taking part in this plan must be or 
become members of The Experiment. 


A. "Design Your Own Program" 

Do you want to do something worthwhile this summer? 

Create a program within Canada or abroad which you 

consider useful and rewarding. If sufficient interest is 

obtained, the E.t.L. will seek special grants to support your 


Individuals, groups, or organizations are invited to submit 


Your programs may include study, travel, homestay, and 

may represent useful activities, jobs or services.. 

Put your ideas together a"hd suggest a program. Some 

programs to be considered: 

1. Cultural seminars with ethnic groups across Canada. 

2. An investigation into the social and cultural effects 
of advanced communication. 

3. Language clashes — to be conducted in French and 
English for communities across Canada. 

4. A documentary travel, study program — film 

Use your imagination! What would you like to do? 
When you apply, you will be asked to: 

(a) spell out the purpose of your program. 

(b) How long will it last? How many people will be 
involved and how many vili benefit? 

(c) State your budget 

(d) Outline how your objectives are to be achieved. 

N.6. You will be asked to send a documented report and 
evaluation to The Experiment in International Living 
'of Canada at the end of your program. 

B. Short Term Programs (1 - 4 weeks) 

A short term program may vary in length from one to four 
weeks, with homestay and excursions organized within the 
host community. 

Such programs allow time for independent travel or provide 
for an early return for those unable to remain abroad for 
six to eight weeks. 

Other programs within this category are designed for 
teacher and teacher-student groups who are seeking 
experiences abroad for cultural enrichment, on-the-spot 
study of history, geography or increasing fluency withy a 
language. l
