Sims - Craigen to SAC

Record 17-point platform highlights acclaimation

By MICHAEL CRESSEY

Steve Sims and Hugh Craighen were acclaimed to SAC Presidential offi- ces last Tuesday at 5:00 o'clock in an uncontested election. They will offici- ally begin their ‘67-’68 term in three weeks.

Sims, president-elect, admit- ted “we’re happy to be here but we’re just sorry we can’t bring the issues to the students because it’s the only real chance to actively inform them and speak with them; however we are publishing a brochure which we hope will achieve what the campaign would have in the near future.”

Craighen, the in-coming inter- nal vice-president, reinforced Sim’s comment by adding “we still feel we have a mandate from the students.”

A formal statement of their platform dealt with Loyola in the following areas: educatio- nal, facilities and extra-curricu- lar. In an interview with the NEWS they discussed their overall platform with emphasis on five significant policies all relavent to Loyola’s internal and external development as a university.

They view their role in UGEQ as “active participation in the provincially-based programs of UGEQ: and to lobby for the acceptance of Loyola as a uni- versity by the member organ- izations of UGEQ.” They intend to cooperate with the Adminis- tration and operate with a con- sideration of provincial politics.

They are optimistic and “in- sure the opening of the new Student Center in the summer of 1968.” They are negotiating with four possible sources for the million dollar loan necessary for completion of the Center, but in the opinion of Sims, “We don’t forsee any problems.”

The constitution, now in its fourth draft is almost complete, and will be presented to the Lower House for ratification sometime during the summer. Policy and Program boards have been set up to.see that adminis- tration and ~ activities run smoothly.

New Post Created

Novel within the SAC Execu- tive framework is their decision “to create an additional vicce- presidential position in order to provide the necessary man- power to accomplish our plat- form.” Coordinating educational affairs, he will chiefly oversee SAC activities regarding the Student Center and student re- presentation in the university community legislative bodies.

A further innovation will be “to strive for the elimination of the present course attendance policy which is often employed as partial criteria for academic achievement.” This they will do by submitting a brief to the Se- nate and lobbying among indi- vidual professors.

In answer to a question on whether or not he will follow the policies and guidelines laid down by his predecessor, Ri- chard Aitken, with respect to student representation, Sims Stated that “in general we will establish the need in the minds of individual] members of the Faculty Senate; the structure will follow.”

The new executive intends to develop a “closer cooperation not just with the Board of Di- rectors but with all students.” They wish to understand what the student wants, thinks and needs.

They wish to develop what David O’Brien calls “common consciousness of purpose.” They will attempt to bridge the gap between student government and the student and break the barrier between students and the Administration.

We Propose...

Tuition Fees :

a) to maintain the present fee structure

b) to expand the Student Loan Fund, so that no Loyola stu- dent is forced'to withdraw because of financial difficulties

¢) to work within UGEQ, lobbying for a sound governmental policy in the distribution of loans and bursaries

Charter :

To reduce opposition to Loyola’s university charter; to initiate dynamic student participation in undertakng a meaningful course of action to achieve this end.

University Government :

To establish a suitable structure by which students are repre- sented on the Senate and college committees, in order that students play an active role in policy and decision-making within their university community.

Laval attacks Bertrand

Seven to eight hundred Laval students marched on Parliament last Tuesday to protest the Department of Education’s in- action on the recommendation of the “Comité du plan” con- cerning the general accessibility of education.

The students who were as- sembled in front of the Parlia- ment buildings protested in vain against the Minister of Education, J.J. Bertrand and the Minister of State Mr. Mas- se. A deputy of the Union Na- tionale was to address the stu- dents, but they refused to listen to him.

Certain protestors were in- terviewed and according to them generally accessibility re- cognized in the western world, is a right for all to pursue suitable studies regardless of social class. The majority of

them were protesting because Minister Bertrand did not keep his promises concerning bur- saries, loans and general acces- sibility. Others wanted to pres- sure their student councils into taking a stand on Mr. Ber- trand’s proposals.

When they were questioned as to whether students had lied on their applications in the last distribution of bursaries and loans in December, they replied that the state of affairs was largely due to the actual sys- tem. The system can incite stu- dents to cheat if he wants to live decently, for”he is obliged to stage parents’ salary, even if he does not receive aid from them. This situation also ap- plies to married students.

BC students refused aid

VICTORIA (CUP) Shout- ing, singing and dripping in the rain, more than 2,000 British Columbia university students swarmed up the steps of the legislature here to ask for help.

The students were marching on the final day of the BC As- sembly of Students’ education action week.

Students were from the Uni- versities of Victoria and British Columbia, Simon Fraser Univer- sity, the B.C. Institute of Tech- nology, provincial nurses’ schools and similar colleges.

Education Minister Leslie Pe- terson, who had at first refused to receive the march, met the students with a defence of the Social-Credit government’s edu- cation policy.

“Go back to your lectures and behave responsibly, “he told them, raising their mild chant to an angry roar.

Peterson said he sympathized with only one of the students’ requests: the equalization grants.

“Tuition fees will stay,” he told the bellowing crowd.

Peterson insisted that the parental means test for stu- dents bursaries will remain in effect. Student leaders had claimed this was undignified and irrelevant.

UGEQ accepts Loyola

Loyola leaped the first hur- dle in its bound to official ac- ceptance into UGEQ, and the first political grind towards its birth as a University.

After an hour and a half de- bate Tuesday night, Loyola was accepted into and receive a sat on COOMCOOR, the official working body of UGEQ, which explores, formalizes and propo- secs the motions presented for debate at the Annual General Congress.

This acceptance has still to be officially approved, along with that of Sir George Williams University, at the upcoming Ge- neral Congress, February 15-19. On this Congress Loyola as an official member of UGEQ has representation by population: onc vote per every 400 students plus the three votes of the SAC Executive.

The fact that COOMCOOR ac- cepted Loyola on its own terms of entry (ratified by a Lower House motion) is a recognition of Loyola as having a “parti- lar status”, since the constitu- tion of COMCOOR does not provide for the acceptance of clasiscal Colleges within its framework.

The UGEQ organization which deals with the problems of Classical Colleges is FAGECC. Made up solely of Classical Col- leges, it makes its recommen- dations to the General Congress through COMCOOR, which first debates them themselves.

Had Loyola not been accept- ed into COMCOOR, its defini- tion as an aspirant University would have been challenged, and it would have been placed in the secondary position of other Classical Colleges.

long wait.

We propose...

(Continued from page 1) UGEQ : To actively participate in the Provincially based programs of UGEQ; and to lobby for the acceptance of Loyola as a uni- versity by the member organizations of UGEQ, to coincide with the revision of the U of M charter. Attendance Regulations : To strive for the elimination of the present course attendance policy which is often employed as partial criteria for academic achievement. Student Centre To insure the opening of the new Student Centre in the summer of 1968, ushering it through the final stages of planning and construction, and formulating policies which will maximize its benefit to the students. Parking Areas To initiate a concerted effort for more adequate parking facilities at a minimum cost to the student.

Food Services

To seek the increased expansion and sanitation of the present facilities.

Study Areas

To provide additional study areas, specifically by acquiring

and making available listings of vacant classrooms (day and

evening) for this purPose.

Freshmen Orientation

To conduct an accelerated and more effective program where-

by the increasing number of incoming students become aware

of all facets of university life.

Athletics

To work in conjunction with the LMAA President, fostering a

policy which best serves the students during the continued

expansion of the athletic program.

International Students

To foster a more culturally diversified program sponsored by

the various interest groups on campus so as to enable the

student body to more adequately benefit from the back-

grounds of these groups; to work toward the realization of

an international house.

Fraternities and Sororities

To assist the fraternities and sororities in conducting a program

designed to present them to the student body as an integral

part of Loyola’s student life so as to further their growth and

development, which will of necessity lead toward the realization

of international affiliations, and eventual fraternity and soro-

rity housing.

Faculty Assemblies

To encourage the faculty assemblies in their work of providing

educational and social services to students, and in acting as

an advisory capacity to the executive and Board of Directors. (Continued on page 5)

The promise of a new era

The directors of student govern- ment at any institution are regard- ed by some with awe and by others with disdainbut the bulk of stud- ents, being unaware of the mecha- nics of government or the leaders, fall into that state of mind common- ly termed apathetic.

This is a label pinned on citizens of every society in every age. When an event is not successful, or when there is poor response to a political campaign, the catch-all cliché is dragged off the shelf and beat tho- roughly by the tongues of those be- hind the scenes. The burden of fail- ure must be carried by someone; thus it is quickly shifted to the un- knowing student populace. Yet the blame is not all theirs.

Consider the acclamation of Steve Sims and Hugh Craigen to the offices of President and Vice- President of the Student Associa- tion.

Surely in a campus population of 2600 there are other men pos- sessing the ability to fill these im- portant posts.

Why then, do these individuals not come forward? The answer is that those possessing the criteria to become aspirants are ignorant of the benefits which accompany the- se positions. They do not realize that the President receives a sub- stantial honoraria of full tuition plus, and that the other members of the executive are also partially compensated for their time and ef- fort.

Student activities demand much but they also offer much. Besides

the honoraria, there is the opport- unity to acquire knowledge _in- valuable beyond graduation.

The ability to work with people and their ideas, an acquisition of the essentials of organization and administration, all flow naturally from the many positions available.

However we are now faced with the fact that Sims and Craigen have been acclaimed, and hence we must determine if a good will re- sult.

Although it is unfortunate that they encountered no opposition, the new executive has the potential to inject a new vigor into the tradi- tional deadness associated with student government.

They stride into office with the confidence and experience neces- sary to begin a solution to the mul- titude of dilemnas flooding our university. Instead of presenting a platform of platitudes, they have mandated themselves to fulfill a comprehensive program. Elsewhere in this newspaper is 17 point plat- form outlining the intentions of their executive for the year ahead. Included is one significant point which declares that they intend to educate the campus on the work- ings of student government. This is a major step towards alleviating a- pathy.

The inauguration of Sims and Craigen trumpets the promise of an era of leadership and accomplish- ment in student affairs. Let us hope that in a year we can judge it to be a promise fulfilled.

Charismatic leaders we have known a child’s memoir: and so the

lord spake unto the chair in the Lower House saying: “Go ye therefore

unto the children of Loyola and command them to acclaim Sims and

Craigen.” And so it came to pass that Craigen and Sims were acclaimed...

Remember me

Dear Sir,

Last year LOYOLA NEWS spoke of Carnival 1966 as the “black car- nival”. The purpose of the Tri-College Carnival was to bring Loyola, St. Josephs and Marianapolis closer to- gether, but the exact opposite seems tv have been accomplished. The rea- son for my letter is not to put the blame on any one college as I am sure that we all share in this blame but to give an example of just how far apart we are now.

Melting snow men

Dear Sir:

Usually one would just ignore, but the “Abominable Snowman” was too abominable for credibility. To save vulgarity, it sounded like a cross be- tween ‘the closer he gets, the better you look’, ‘opus for a frozen teeny- bopper’ and ‘say there, poppa Mez, is you anywhere? Man, I’m down with it stinking like a honky.’ Try printing soup can lables to fill up space, for at least they “... bring back the ministroni into your mar- riage”.

Steve Hreha, you must be kidding!

Rammona Rohoshewska Arts 4 English Lit.

As queen of the Tri-College Carni- val, I am in the position to see the situation as it really is.

Traditionally every queen is ac- corded the courtesy of crowning her successor, although this years Carni- val Committee does not feel that this is a necessity. In fact I was told by Mr. Pierre Mineau that this is not even traditional and perhaps it isn’t; however last year I was crowned by Miss Anna Carrignan (the previous Queen) and she does not seem to re- semble Father President, who ac- cording to Mr. Mineau, traditionally crowns the queen.

Father Patrick G. Malone, conse- quently, will crown this year’s queen.

Is it merely that everyone wished a return to the old tradition, or is it more simply the fact that I am from St. Joe’s and not Loyola? If I have been rash in my judgement of the situation, I apologize, but I wish that I could have been notified one way or the other.

As queen of your carnival last year I would have been very honored to crown my successor. But as this was impossible I wish to take this oppor- tunity to congratulate her. If I could have been there in person, I would have said “Congratulations it’s a great feeling isn’t it ? I only hope that your year as queen will be as wonderful as mine was.”

“This has been a recording”

Who more than ten years ago, did more than dream about the total replacement of the heart by an artificial device ? Only the Russians it seems. In his book “Experimental Trans- plantation of Vital Organs”, V. P. Demikhov stated that in 1937 _an artificial heart device was constructed and placed in the chest of three different dogs.

But the real impetus began only about ten years ago when

gun in 1959, with which a dog was kept alive for more than thirty hours (1961);

—Drs. Basila, Wunn and Woodward developed a fluid amplification system for relia- ble long term circulatory sup- port (1962);

—Dr. DeBakey and Hall ex- perimented with the use of skeletal muscle as a power source (1964);

—and finally, the feasibility

Pulmonary artery

Right ventricle

a few papers began to appear that suggested total replace- ment of the heart. Once the work of intracoporeal devices began, it gained rapidly in pace, with the basic problems being attacked over a broadeinig ter- rain.

Some of the influential de- velopment, and the dates when they were reported, are as fol- lows :

In 1958 Dr. T. Akatsu and Dr. William Kalff removed the heart of a dog and replaced it with an air-driven device of po- lyvinyl plastic, which sustain- ed the animal for ninety minu- tes;

—Drs. Houston, Akustu, and Kolff developed a motor driven pendelum pump that sustain- ed a dog’s circulation for

ore than five hours 1960);

—Dr. Frank Hastings and his colleagues developed a hydrau- lically activated biventicular pump, on which work had be-

et

Left ventricle

of using an implanted neuclear power source to drive an arti- ficial heart was reported in 1965.

As is probably evident from the brief foregoing sketch, there are many different types of artificial hearts and power sources under development. Dr. DeBakey (probably the best known in the field of intra- corporeal heart devices) report- ed in 1964 that there were al- ready eight basic designs, which relied on three sources of power-electric, hydraulic (fluid and gas), and skeletal. And Since that time, atomic energy has been added.

Each type of pump has pre- sented unique problems, but as Dr. DeBakey pointed out some problems are common to all. These included “the com- plex problems of blood des- truction and clotting, wear and fatigue of the fabricating ma- terial, interruption of certain

necessary physiological feed- back (reflex) mechanisms, and biochemical acceptance of ma- terial by the host”. Some hearts are designed to be totally im- plantable that is.power sour- ce and all while others rely on wires or tubes _ passing through the wall of the body to the power supply outside.

Can the heart and the circu- latory system meet the engin- eering design requirements and restrictions imposed on them ? Some of these:

The compactness of man’s body and his active life in the environment suggest the need for a closed cardiovascular sys- tem. Both in engineered devi- ces, and living organisms, com- pactness is achieved by relegat- ing multiple tasks to functional elements. Blood is such a func- tional element. It contains ma- terials needed for’ respiration, nutrition and excretion. How- ever this highly complex fluid is fragile and easily damaged, so that stringent requirements are imposed on the artificial heart. For instance it has been found from use of the heart- lung machine, that this blood damage limits the pump run to one or two hours. Thus the heart pump must be designed to pump blood gently; it must squeeze the blood with minimal force.

The fabricating material of the artificial heart must have extraordinary endurance. Consi- dering that the human heart pumps one to two gallons per minute, and beats between two or three billion times in an average lifetime; the engineer is faced with the problem of discovering a material capable of operating with such limits.

Then there is also the pro- blem involved in working in the internal environment high temperature, a liquid atmos- phere (100 percent humid) that is both corrosive and conduct- ive, a soft environment that un- dergoes constant motion so that erosion and breakage are seri- ous problems, and the physiolo- gical defenses of the living sys- tem, that is the capability of attaching and rejecting what is alien to itself.

These problems demonstrate the necessity for a new special- ity arising in an already spe- cialized world. The design of the artificial heart brings to- gether highly skilled doctors and engineers; two professions which would scem at first glance to have nothing in com- mon but then, ‘is not the

by Mike Cooke

human body the best engineer- ed system of all?

The need for engineers is ex- treme in the medical and espe- cially in the artificial heart field. The dogma of medical education is such that one must learn an incredibly large body of facts. As a result, the doc- tors do not usually have suf- ficient knowledge of other fields to enable them to do the things they want to do. They end up doing a job inadequat- ely, or spend an_ inordinate amount of time reinventing the wheel, as one disillusioned: re- searcher picturesquely put it. However there is the other side of the coin.

It.is generally felt that a sig-

nificant contribution could not be made directly by an engin- eer without close liaison with a person or group of persons trained in medicine. Many an engineering attempt to build an artificial heart have come out looking like a fuel pump for a '34.V-8 Ford engine. To demonstrate the natural tension that exists between two train- ed disciplines attacking a com- mon problem one has only to look at the accompanying dia- grams one represents the medical concept, the other the engineering.

The testimony to the need for engineers varies in tone, and although there is occasion- ally some slight question of just how the doctor-engineer cooperation should be brought about, the conclusion is uni- form: intimate cooperation is needed.

Engineers are urged not to work in their own basements, but to become involved with a solid medical team. Too often, it is said, both the engineer working alone and the single doctor working with him, have been stung. And once a doctor, hoping to get help from an en- gineer, becomes disillusioned by the results, he develops a pow- erful immunity to trusting en- gineers again, or being inter- ested in working with them, apparently this is true.

The only deep unanswered question that remains after the

technical problems have clear-,

ed away, is the question that will be posed by the man who is living with an artificial heart,

3 Fig. 3. Engineering-type diagram of the human cardio. vascular system, which allows an engineer to think about the heart function in terms that are familiar to him,

whose “every second of life might be totally dependant on his local power company”. The question ? “Who am [?”

The problem of subjective identity, long the private do- main of philosophers, may be besct with new incursions and alarms.

Man’s heart has been for him, since the dawn of civilization the symbol of the finer attri- butes of his spirit.

Love, compassion, justice, truth, sincerity all reside in the heart. In fact, the heart of man is considered the very eenter of his being.

What happens then to this man’s person when the physic- al organ is wrenched from his body and replaced by a organ created by man an artificial organ ?

We propose...
