Newbie capacitor question

Newbie capacitor question
Hello guys: I've been learning about amplifiers and feel  
I'm ready to start getting my hands dirty. I have a busted  
vibrochamp that smoked the electrolytic cap going to pin 8 of the 6v6 (cathode?). The old ones are obviously polarized,  
the + and- are a dead giveaway. The new ones have an arrow pointing in one direction. Are they polarized? Do they have to be Is the arrow pointing to + or -? I've tried every electronics book I have, They are no help at all.  
Thanks in advance  
Paul Frischmann
