There was, however, a fly in the ointment. Due to the acclamations, three mem- bers of the Developers slate were seated on Council and judging by the events which took place at the first meet- ings, problems were tobe the major developments.

Hodgson and Riven are concerned by the alarming bankruptcy rate of Quebec small businessmen; 9 out 10 small businesses starting up today will fold within a year, a Situation they say is largely due to a lack of expertise. They are look- ing to big business for as- sistance in launching Busi- ness-Aide, seeking not only money but volunteer specia- lists as well.

AT THE

Orientation

Opens

There have always been several important factors missing in evening orienta- tion programs. First of all, the massive absence of eve- ning students has always made the whole affair look rather meagre. Then, too, a constant unavailability of faculty members for mee- tings and conferences with scholars has_ traditionally resulted in the evening stu- dent getting less than the day students in the way of introductions to the univer- sity.

Last year, improvement in the organization of the program resulted in a better orientation for evening stu- dents with over 350 people attending in the two nights. Student executives last year still felt that the faculty was partly to blame for the

/ program not having been an

even greater success. Eve- ning orientation leaders pointed out that while pro- fessors spent an entire month affiliating with the day program, they were reluc- tant to contribute likewise to the night portion.

This year, Richard Firth,

chairman of the program, is projecting a student at- tendance of approximately 600 to the expanded five day orientation. Firth expects the majority of students to be from the Mature Students Qualification Pro- gram.

On August 14 and 15, the Arts Orientation will take place while Commerce follows on the 16th and a combined Science/Enginee- ring night closes out ihe August portion of the pro- gram.

On September 12, an open day will take place when all those who could not at- tend on the scheduled dates are invited. The September 12 date also coincides with the registration date for par- tial students.

Evening Orientation ‘72 will include a tour of the Hall Building; presentations by Health, Guidance, Athle- tics and the Dean of Stu- dents office. Additionnally, faculty members will be pre- sent to discuss any academic questions that the students may have.

Don’t feel bad - you’re not alone. We just found out that man’s reading ability hasn’t really changed for several thousand years.

Moses, in spite of his abi- lity to part waters, probably read at the same rate which he spoke - about 250 w. p.m. (even though it was right to left).

Today, with a million more things to read than the 10 Commandments, man per- Sists in plodding along, say- ing every word to himself, at his approximate speed - 250 w.p.m.

PRINT POLLUTION SOLUTION

The problem is print pollu- tion; the solution is speed reading - quickening of man’s ability to absorb and retain printed material.

If you have a problem re- membering it’s because you’re reading too slowly.

Most people can think fas- ter than they can speak.

Yet we try to slow down our thinking to match our slow reading pace.

Learning is a process of concentration, repetition and multiple exposure. Speed Reading asks you to read something fast 3 times ins- tead of once so you run a better chance of it sticking.

Dr. Joyce Brothers claims: ‘‘Faster reading im- proves comprehension’’, and Dr. Marshall McLuhan, ano- ther advocate of reading dy-

mamics, says: ‘‘Reading speed increases depth and comprehension. At high

speed, the thought form of the author emerges more clearly, so that comprehen- sion and retention of data are also increased.

It is ridiculous, but most students who register for University courses are really ill-prepared. They are ready to spend hundreds of dollars (theirs or their em- dloyers) but they can’t read iast enough to readhalf ofthe books on the required read- ing lists so there is no time for homework.

“‘It is amazing that speed reading is not compulsory’’. Says one parliamentarian. It would certainly stop a lot of Jeadbeats from enroling and it would reduce failures drastically. If students could read through all the books nce, it would help.

Students aren’t the only ones behind - teachers have trouble staying ahead of the students! Preparation for classes requires’ several. hours of reading. If a pro- fessor were to double his rate, he could save himself 10 to 15 hours a week.

NATURALLY FAST READERS

John Kennedy read up- wards of 30 newspapers be- fore breakfast each morning. Teddy Roosevelt read 3 books a day and ran the U.S. at the same time. John Stuart Mill could read so fast that he couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to keep up with his ability to assimilate data. These were naturally fast readers.

Twenty -five years ago, Professor Evelyn Wood built a speed reading courses bas- ed on these naturally fast readers techniques. Her gra- duates number 1/2 million. They read using their hand as a pacer even though your teacher forbids you to.

Speed reading does. not work for everything: poetry, plays, formulae, proof read- ing, cannot be done using any speed reading technique. But we all can train oursel- ves to read 5 times faster in almost everything else.

‘‘Not skimming’’, says E-

velyn Wood, ‘‘but reading. My students read 5times faster - not by reading one word out of 5 but by reading 5 words at a time’’. Last year alone, the thousand instructors she has trained in turn taught 90,000 students to read and study faster. The failure rate was 2%. If you have the in- testinal fortitude to practise an hour a day for 60 days, about 20 hours to break your bad habits (developed and nurtured since you were 8) and 40 hours to learn new good ones, you can train yourself to read at least 3 times faster.

Strange thing about man - he can pick up a bad habit in 60 seconds - yet it takes him at least 60 hours of hard work to learn a good habit. There are many habits that students have that must be broken: no more reading in bed. No smoking, eating, drinking while reading. Not only is it uncomfortable to read in bed, but the lighting is generally poor. Readingis a stimulus designed to wake you up and transmit ideas from author to reader. The only thing that gets tired reading in bed are your eyes.

The objective is to concen- trate and take notes - so list- ening to the radio or music while studying are also ver- boten.

Reading Efficiency cour-

studies through better reading

ses include a period or two on ‘‘how to learn’’, ‘‘how to study’’, ‘Show to takenotes’’, and ‘‘how to prepare for tests’’. They also advise a- gainst the unforgivable sin of underlining.

Most people reading this haven’t taken a reading cour- se of any kind since they were 8. If you happened to be daydreaming the day your grade 2 teacher talked about reading phrases you are stuck with a severely hamp- ered skill.

In the last 12 months, over 60 million pages of new scientific documentation was published. If you could read at 1000 words a minute, it would take you 7 days a week - 8 hours per day to the year 3,363 AD to get through just last year’s output.

The only reason everyone isn’t rushing out to enrol for a speed reading course, is they are sobusy reading, they don’t have the time!

MORE LOAN

MONEY AVAILABLE

by Alex Marian

Dave Ramsay, Financial Aid Officer for Sir George Williams University, has an- nounced a number of chan- ges in the Quebec Govern- ment Loans and Bursaries Service for the 1972-73 aca- demic year. The alterations were instituted by the go- vernment and explained to financial aid officers from Quebec universities late in July at a one-day convention in Quebec City.

The major change is an increase in the maximum amount which will be gran- ted for each level of studies. While the ceiling on loans remains as outlined in the Sir George Financial Aid Information booklet, the bur- sary amount has increased as much as $500.

The increase in money allotments has probably stemmed from a highly so-

student flunked his exams!

phisticated internal audit system which minimizes the Service’s bad debts and cuts down drastically on ex- cessive loans and grants.

Mr. Ramsay pointed out that while the maximum of the grants has increased, very few people will actual- ly come close to the few ceilings. The reason for this is that the government has established a fixed allowance that students, in their sepa- rate categories, can spend on lodgings, transportation, food, books, etc. Summer employment revenues’ are also fixed by the Service and applied in determining an applicant’s financial needs.

Parental contribution will also be presumed in the pro- cessing of an application. Thus, depending on the ca- tegory that a student falls into, certain revenues are subtracted from what the

AO A~t EUnns

This

Service determines to be his allowable total expense. Out of this, the first, $500 - $800 are allocated as aloan, and the remainder becomes the bursary grant. This grant very rerely approaches the newly increased maximum allotment.

According to Mr. Ramsay, a married student with chil- dren stands to benefit most fron the new system. Be- cause of numerous’ deduc-

tions granted to the married student (i.e. $1,000 for baby- sitting, $300 per child), his government aid can quite easily approach the new ma- ximum totals.

The loans and bursaries changes are going to have a great impact on landed immigrants in Canada whose parents’ live outside the country. In this case, the

government has always con-.

sidered the parental contri- bution factor to be nil. This year, they will be deducting a minimum of $450 as pa-

rental unless a landedimmi-

grant student produces pho- tostats of death certificates for both his parents. As anil- lustration of the effect of the ruling, Mr. Ramsay out the ruling, Mr. Ramsay points out that an immigrant student who last year re- ceived a $700 loan and an $890 bursary, will this year only receive a $440 bursary to

accompany the same loan..

The changes made by the Loans and Bursaries Ser- vice was resultant of stu- dent’s incomes spendings.

One of the reasons students fail courses is they don’t have TIME to read all the books on the re- quired reading list. THERE IS NOW A SOLUTION ... A COURSE IN HOW TO READ AND STUDY FASTER... Almost everyone has the built-in me- chanism to triple their present reading and study skills. EVELYN WOOD is so sure you can do it, that she actually GUARANTEES to refund the enti- re tuition fee to any student who follows her method and does not AT LEAST TRIPLE his reading efficiency.

You see, since 1959 over HALF AMILLION of her students have learned to read an average of 4.7 times FASTER, WITH IMPROVED COMPREHEN- SION AND RECALL. Over 50,000 are Canadian students and educators who now ENJOY READING and studying and have time for some ‘‘OUTSIDE”’ leisure reading too. If you hate to read or it sim- ply takes you too long to read all you have to, you owe it to yourself to LOOK INTO READING DY- NAMICS.

The best way to find out all about reading efficiency is to COME TO A FREE PREVIEW LESSON. It's an hour-long condensation of Professor Wood's world famous 8 lesson course. AQUALIFIED INS- TRUCTOR will explain the Evelyn Wood Method and how it is taught. You will see a short enjoyable

movie and have all your questions answered. In less than an hour you will hear about the course you should have taken before tackling college or CEGEP. Learn HOW TOLEARN; HOW TOSTUDY; HOW TO PREPARE FOR TESTS; HOW TO READ FOR ENJOYMENT; and more important, HOW TO RECALL what you have read. You have everything to gain.

HOW THEY DECIDE:

The following are indications of how the Quebec Loans and Bursaries Service administers student loan applica- tions.

A. A college student has a minimum expected summer revenue of $400. This is applied in every case . Parental contribution varies with parents’ employment and salary. A fixed figure is added to the $400.

As expenditures, a collegial studentis givena maximum allowable figure of $875 if his domicile is in the same region as his place of study. If not, the allowable figure , is $1,475.

If there is a collegial tuition fee, this is added on. In the case of a $450 fee, the arithmetic might be as follows:

Revenue Expenses

$875 - Maximum Allowance $400 - Summer Wages $450 - Tuition

$450 - Parental Contribution $1325 - Total

$850 - Total

$1325. - $ 850. $475 difference

Since in the case of collegial students, the first $500 is always classified as a loan; in the above example , no bursary would be granted.

B. A university student has minimum expected sum- mer revenue depending on year and faculty. Inthis exam- ple, we will use, a low figure of $400. However, his max- imum allowable figure is $1,125 in the case of a person whose domicile is in the same region as his place of study, and $1,875 if not. The arithmetic follows.

Revenue Expenses $400 - Summer Wages $1,125 - Allowance $450 - Parental Contribution $ 650 - Tuition $850 - Total $1,775 - Total $1,775 ; - $ 850 $ 925

Since, in the case of undergraduate students, the first $700 is always classified as a loan, and in the above example, a bursary of $225 would be granted.

Loyola’s Place in the Sun

Summer Camp with a Difference

Loyola College of Mont- real really isn’t.

With the purchase early last fall of 22 acres of farm land in Lacolle, Quebec they approximately doubled the amount of land that they own.

A more apt title for the east-end and deep south ins- titution might be Loyola Col- lege of Montreal and Lacol- le because they are putting their 22 acre farm to cons- tructive and commendable use.

The land is approximately 200 yards to the Canadian side of an unmanned U.S. Canadian border point. A rambling yellow wood house has a bad habit of lurking around the last curve in a picturesque and twisted read that handles an avera- ge of 2 cars a day.

Shade trees’ that are weary with age stand guard on a Slope that begins at the huge houses 175 year- old foundations.

And, unlikely as it may seem, that is Loyola Colle- ge’s quiet half- the Loyola Lacolle Center for Innova- tive Instruction.

When the college first bought the farm last year, the Sociology and Social Science departments of Lo- yola immediately took ad- vantage of the surrounding peace and tranquility and organized the old place’s agenda.

Professor Dick Harman -of Loyola and Sir George’s Dick MacDonald were es- pecially involved in the con- sultation and planning that went into it.

Harman, a Sociology pro- fessor at Loyola, is the cur- rent administrator of the site.

But then the summer ar- rived and the tours, the en- counter sessions and the field trips ceased. The 10- room house stood empty on

its desolate winding read and that neck of the Quebec woods became quiet again.

Not for long however.

Now, every Monday through Friday, the oldfarm is noisier than is has ever been before. And the sounds are ones of glee. The sounds are those of laugther from children who have spent any- where from 8 to 16 years shuffling along city streets and playing in gloomy back alleys. The sounds are re- freshing.

There is a fantastic diffe- rence, a touching difference, between the laugther of a youth who is laughing in the grass and one who is ecstatic because he has ne- ver seen so huge a patch of grass and trees and earth in his entire life.

And that is what the 22 acre country home is con acre country home is con- tributing this summer.

Because, back in early June, a graduate of Loyola, Leo H. Werner, convinced himself that the land could not, should not, just sit and stagmate over the summer months.

And the Dean of Students Office at Loyola concurred with him. They rented Werner the lease to the es-

tate for a $1.00 fee for

the entire summer. And Werner went out to spend his summer giving some- thing to children who were not used to receiving. He recruited another ex-Loyola student and friend Rick Blair.

Before too long they had a full-time staff of six, with Sir George Student Ricki Ti- tleman, Loyola grad Mel Kaushansky, ex-Sir George Mike Hayes and Loyola’s Paul Morse giving their summers to the cause as well.

They put in an applica- tion for an opportunities for

Koyola’s s “10- room farm house is the entre of activity on a 22-acre summer camp for the underpriviledged.

by Robert Jadah

When Mike Hayes played football for Sir George I re- member having a high de- gree of respect for him.

Neither tall nor big, Mike Hayes had guts and deter- mination on the field of foot- ball.

Now, today, I realize that I had under-estimated Mike Hayes.

I stood and talked to him under a stretching, cracked balcony of that yellow man- sion in Lacolle. And all that I could ask the guy who I had watched pummeling football giants for two years was ‘‘What the hell are you doing here?’’

And he answered, ‘‘You should see those kids when they’re here They love it. We see things we do things - they don’t want to gohome.’’

And he showed me the ‘‘artsy-craftsy room’”’ where the kids can paint and sculpture. We plodded through the fields outsi- de where the grass was worn and bent from children’s ga-

Personality

mes. He showed me the gar- den, where the weeds and vegetables were having a race for the sun, with the weeds only slightly ahead. And we sat under magni- ficent shade trees.

‘““You. know’’ he’d say, ‘it’s amazing how people get into it when you’re doing something like this. Every- body’s just great about it’’.

And I knew that it must be true, because nothing that I had ever seen, heard or expected was in Mike Hayes that day. And I didn’t know any of the other people in- volved and I could only speak for Mike Hayes and how it was amazing how he had gotten into it.

You see, what those peo- ple are doing out there is so much more than most of us doing in the summer.

I’m out fending off my own distress by making the money to keep me _ happy in the winter. I’m protecting me. And the reason for that is that I don’t have the guts to

do what Mike Hayes and Leo

Werner and the others did..__ I don’t have the compassion

to push all my other things to the side and help others. I talk about it, sure as hell, but when the following sum- mer rolls around - I’m still only taking about it.

And the group out there showed me pictures of some of ‘‘their kids’’. Groups of 20-30, they were together under one of the largest trees - the size of which you don’t see in the corri- dors of Montreal.

The were thin children, some to the point of gaunt. They- wore simple clothes which had been simple clo- thes for other kids before them.

But what really looked good on every single one of them was smiles. Life in every face. One week in the country for people who had never been out of Montreal was all that they could want from the summer. For years they’1l remember that one week; for years they’ll che- rish it.

And Mike Hayes, ex-Geor- gian footballer, is part of that memory for 250 kids.

I realize that I had under- estimated Mike Hayes.
