school for the Jwo davs prior to the holidays Students learning snooker OTTAWA Almost 200 Ottawa students are learn- ing to play snooker on high school time They are being taught by Rene Aubry a veteran pool player It started when the Broken Cue billiard parlor suggested the idea of a snooker course to Ottawa senior public and secondary schools Five schools responded favorably and students from all five attend weekly study sessions at Broken Cue parlors For a fee they receive eight two-hour lessons instruction books and free entry in the annual Ot- tawa snooker championship Broken Cue s Ervm Budge says the idea behind the course is to improve the public s image of the game He says student response to the course has been good None has missed a class vet he said The only problem is that most of the students plaving for the first time want to get out and at- tack the table They tend to loiget the theory behind the instruction and just play to have fun Aubrv agrees He says most beginners hit the ball too hard And after 51 years of the fa7-vear-old instructor should know Since his father taught him to plav English billiards at he has become one of Canada s most highly regard ed players Last year he recorded the lirst perfect game of snooker in the Ottawa area In his course he tries to emphasise the proper stance and technique for hitting the ball straight If thev can be shown the basics at a tender age they will become better players he says When you watch younger plavers you can see where some of the mechanics of their game are lacking and suggest to them what to do What Canadian billiards needs is a central body to organize plavers and run tour- No rigid study program Environment is multi-faceted CALGARY do our own thing says Ja- net a student in the University of Calgary faculty of environmental design we take the total ap- proach to the says William T the dean Environment is a multi-fac- eted thing We feel it is better to let each student progress the way he wants To Miss Besecker and other students it s an unique learn- ing experience You don t need a special major to enter The faculty has students with bachelors degrees in phys- ics social wel- political science fine in- dustrial home economice and a few others Dean Perks can't recall There is no rigid program of study although each student is expected to have a good appreciation of the various problems of the environment before he receives a master s degree in environmental design There are three interlocking streams in the program ar- urbanism and en- vironmental science Their general focuses are the build- ing human settle- ments and human and natural resources Emphasis is on inter- disciphnanty and so that practitioners in each of the three streams are ac- quainted with the language philosophy and problems of all three says the faculty calen- dar OFFERS OPTIONS To provide professional competence each degree op- tion offers several areas for concentrated study Environ- mental science for example has behavioral planning in- formation and policy ecological management and technological systems as areas for concentrated study The average age of the stu- dent body is 27 And the pro- gram usually takes three years compared with the av- erage of two jears for other master s programs I think you have to spend three years before you can feel confident in said Bryson McKay a third- year student You could do it in two but that would be defeating the purpose The established two years originated from recommendations made in 1965 by the Alberta Associ- ation of Architects Dean a 39-year-old native of was direc- tor of long-range planning at the National Capital Commis- sion in Ottawa when he was appointed first dean of the faculty Jan 1971 The first students were ac- cepted in 1971 LOOK TO FUTURE students are chal- lenged to question whether what we have been doing is acceptable for the he said One aspect of the program is called a sys- tem under which students are placed in a variety of employ- ment situations appropriate to their developed skills and de- sired objectives Miss Besecker gradu- ated in architecture from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1971 She still is studying but said studying architecture in the faculty of environmental design is different we are exposed to other people s she said We learn to design buildings in harmony with the environment It is not narrow and confined as you would do in a school of architecture One of every three students at the faculty is a woman Women are more sensitive than men in a lot of areas concerning the Dean Perks said Awards day tomorrow Kate Andrews High School Coaldale will hold its annual awards dav tomorrow at 9 a m in the auditorium About 35 scholarships prizes and
