Acadia 3, Waterloo 2

The hockey Warriors made it to the national championship game last night at Maple Leaf Gardens, but fell just short. It was an exciting game, with the excitement for UW fans concentrated in the last five minutes as the Warriors came back from a 3-0 deficit to score two quick goals. "A few more minutes and we probably could have tied it, but it didn't happen," says the tired voice of someone who was there.

Acadia University's Axemen go home to Wolfville as national champions, a title they also claimed in 1993. They advanced to yesterday's final by beating Trois-Rivieres 4-3 on Saturday afternoon.

Also on Saturday, the Warriors defeated Calgary 5-2 to make it to the championship game. Waterloo took a 3-0 lead in that game before Calgary battled back to make it 3-2, but two more UW goals put it on ice.

Before the weekend tournament, Warrior captain John Wynne was named winner of the Sullivan Trophy for the most outstanding player in Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union hockey this year.

In time for preregistration

Undergraduate calendars for 1996-97 are ready, and were sent to department offices at the end of last week, says Bonnie Bender in the registrar's office. Students can pick up calendars starting this Wednesday, and preregistration for the fall term starts next Monday.

More news from that quarter:

The following measures allow us to control the inventory of the Calendars more effectively, make them more widely available to the general public and recover some costs.

1. Undergraduate Calendars will be distributed to full- and part-time students from the Registrar's Office. Each undergraduate student can obtain one free Calendar in the period March 1996 to March 1997. The free transaction will be recorded and the student will be instructed to retain the Calendar for the entire year. If a student who has been issued a Calendar requires another copy during this period, she / he will have to purchase it from the UW Bookstore.

2. The UW Bookstore will stock an inventory of Calendars and will sell them to students who need a replacement copy and the general public at a retail price of $7.00 + GST (as well as postage and handling where necessary).

3. Departments / Colleges will continue to receive a supply of Calendars free of charge for internal use by faculty advisors and staff. Students should not be given Calendars from this supply but directed to the Registrar's Office, Needles Hall for a free copy.

4. High schools, institutions and other individuals who have received free Calendars in the past will continue to receive them. Those receiving free Calendars will be instructed how to purchase additional or replacement Calendars after initial mailings.

5. Free access to the 1996-97 Undergraduate Calendar will be available on the World Wide Web on March 18 (first day of Preregistration) via UW's home page: http://www.uwaterloo.ca/home.html.

Thousands will visit tomorrow

It might be decent weather, for once, to make life easier for Campus Day visitors. Close on 4,000 high schoolers and their parents are expected to be here for department tours, talks about financial aid, special events and a peek at residence life. Expect crowds in the cafeterias, and congested parking (leave the car at home if you can).

"As part of Campus Day," says Michele Grondin in the food services main office, "all customers will receive a free fountain pop or fountain juice with every purchase over $3."

Talking about derivatives

Phelim Boyle of UW's school of accountancy -- he holds the J. Page R. Wadsworth Chair in Finance and is director of the Centre for Advanced Studies in Finance -- will talk tonight about the complex, controversial topic of derivatives. He's giving this year's Faculty of Arts Lecture, under the title "Barings Bank and Orange County: Living Dangerously with Derivatives". The lecture starts at 7:30 in the Humanities Theatre; admission is free.

Says a flyer about the talk: "In the last few years derivatives have risen from obscurity to notoriety. In a recent article they were described as lurking in the global economy like alligators in a swamp. This talk will explain what derivatives are and discuss their significance. We will also examine the principles on which they are based and in particular their intellectual origins. The talk will be given in (simple) English."

Recycling phone books

Maybe I didn't make things clear enough in Friday's Bulletin, so here's the word about what to do with old telephone books:

Briefly, on a busy day

Education builds a nation

That's the slogan for a national campaign being organized by the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, which includes UW's Federation of Students. A news conference at 4 this afternoon in the Student Life Centre will launch the campaign; UW's president and Waterloo's Member of Parliament are expected to be there. "The campaign," says Federation president Jane Pak, "will be based on three key issues: accessibility, quality of education, and education as a national priority."
