Take A Second Look
As an editorial this departs from the accepted concepts. It
should more exactly be titled as an open letter to those who
moke up the stuff of this very paper. It is an expression of
thoughts from the muchjnaltgned body of student engineers.
It is not an attack for it is not us harsh as that word implies.
This text is rather a statement of opposition to the views expressed in the past by those who edit this sheet.
Our world today is one of unrest. We, the students of a
defnocratic university, are said to be the future leaders of our
country. We arc supposedly being trained to lead the societies
of democracy, to uphold the Golden Rule and to maintain our
heritage as free peoples. We all have a job to do whether wc
ore engineers, doctors, lawyers, economists, farmers or statesmen and only by working together can wc maintain our rights.
But are wc doing as we should here at school? Arc we answering our challenge? We do not think so.
The Engineering student body seems to have a reputation
as "hell raisers." If we should stop for a moment and reflect
on the past—The Engineers held a banquet in 1949 at which
they behaved with poor taste. They admitted this and took
steps to amend their actions. After this banquet they held a
snake parade, repeating a 20 year tradition. No damage was
done to property, and the only casualty was the slight shaking
up of an.elderly minister, who iinderstandingly accepted a
letter of apology with no ill feelings. Yet our college newspaper
elnblazened its front page with biased claims of property damage and mob violence. Not content with this, they rehashed the
entire matter three times in as many weeks. The entire province soon became aware of thc event. The Engineers took all
the blame. But did our paper blast the Bellingham invasion
which ended up in a drunken orgy, and which all but destroyed
inter-college good will? Did they admonish the law faculty
over their eviction from the Hotel Georgia? Did we hear of
last year's Grad Dance? These events were given little mention,
yet an event duplicated for the past 20 years without repercussions, suddenly found attention.
Again in 1949 we had a blood drive in which the Engineering # Students took over by their own. initiative and almost
completely saved a poorly handled campaign. They made a
loud boast for no other reason than to urge the rest of the
campus into action. No, they did not make good their boast,
but again the Faculty of Applied Science, comprising Nursing,
Forestry and Engineers, achieved the highest percentage of their
quota. The Only mention our newspaper made of the affair
wos derision over the fact that we did not make good our boast.
Again the Engineers conducted with great success a campaign

Like a well-oiled machine, the Engineering Undergraduate
Society moved into the Ubyssey yeste^lay soon after the stiU
unaccounted for disappearance of Jim Banham, former Editor-
in-Chief, and Hugh Cameron, Tuesday editor, had left the
campus paper bereft of responsible staff. j
At  the  time  of going  to  press  no
reliable information to account for
the missing Banham and Cameron
dad been received. Action squads of
Engineers are gracing down each
rumour but no lead has yet been
n'oductive of results.
WHITE TAKES OVER
Cy  White,  President of EUS,  said
hat   while   every   effort   was   being
made to locate the absent pubsters,
lis   chief   concern   was  directed   towards   keeping  the campus  supplied
vith   up  to  the  minute  news.   "The
Engineering    Society,"    said    White,
always   stands   ready   to   fill   any
reach that occurs in campus activi-
ies. I am proud thai the Engineers.
t a moment's notice, have been able
,o  efficiently  undertake  the  compli-
atcd job of turning out a newspaper.
I   am  sure   that  our  literary  ability
will   more   than   match   that   of  our'
predecessors.
FREE PRESS
" 'Freedom of the Press'" will be
the watch-word during thc EUS ten-
are, however much it may have been
in question bofore."
Banham and Cameron were seen
on the campus shortly before 10
'clock Monday but no one has come
foi waul to account for them after
that time. Shortly after receiving the
news of the mysterious disappearance. White led hi.s literary detachment into the Pub to supervise this
i.-stie while the action squads under
Don Duguid wore dispatched in search
of the missing editors. Duguid expressed no concern for their safety
but indicated his disgust at the rumoured   kidnapping.   "We'll   moid;
bums."'  said  Duguid. ' '
The Publications office has been
flooded with rumours reporting the
missing men in such various plucfiS
.as New Westminster, Victoria, the
Georgia but all have been unfounded.
A cryptic phone call by an unidenti*
fied person stated merely that tfie
Aorangi will dock in Melbourne i(t
three weeks time. ';

WE DID IT AND WE'RE GLAD!
All Work And No Play
The old proverb about Jack and the
dull boy has many applications to everyday
living. It always has a good work-out at this
•
time of year in the laboratories and draughting' rooms of the Faculty of Applied,Science
with, of course, a climax being reached on
Wed ji c s d a y
and Thursday
night of this
week. What a
terrific amount
of energy has
been devoted
to the various
extra-curricular engineer-
projects which
have passed
through t h e
conception and
design stages and are by now, we hope,
reaching the stage of successful operation.
Like most engineering projects there are
sure to be a few ''bugs" which (to mix metaphors) have to be ironed out before the project is completely successful. Little problems
such as the resign of a  frictionless rotating
seal in a high press-tiro air line and the
development of a thermal-shock proof glass
are difficult to solve but are tackled with
enthusiasm and the many production problems which arise must be overcome.
We thus get some practice in actual engineering and also Obtain some valuable experience in the advantages of team' work.
For, these reasons those of us on the Faculty
do not feel too badly when our jib crane
designs and other assignments do not 'seem
to rceive all the attention we think they
should. We realize that self imposed tasks are
tackled with greater willingness than those
assigned and probably provide more of a
challenge to the ingenuity and knowledge of
the participants.
Finally, it is a very great pleasure to
have the opportunity of working with such
enthusiastic fellow learners and it is perhaps
« in order to congratulate the Executive of the
EUS for their part in developing the esprit de
corps which i.s so characteristic of the Faculty
of Applied -Science.

Ore the morning of Monday, February 20, at 10:09 o'clock a message was
received at MJS headquarters in 11M 2
that the Editor»irr-Chief and the Editpr
for the day were mysteriously missing.
This called for immediate action on
1
j thc   part   of   the   Engineers   if   they
j were   to   publish   their   yearly   issue
| of Uie UBYSSEY. Within minutes the
i alarm   went  out  and   the  Engineers
rolled smoothly into action, intent' on
producing   their   issue   despite   this
sad  loss  to  the  editorial  staff.  I  am
proud to say that the Engineers have
done it again. My thanki to all those
who   so   willingly   helped  make   this
1950  edition  of  the  Engineers'  Issue
a success.

The World And The Engineer
It is time that a little plain talk emanated
from the engineers on this campus. On numerous occasions we have born the brunt of
adverse newspaper publicity with regard to
engineering banquets interfaculty election
wars—our supposed non-interest in non-engineering campus affairs. In fairness, some of
this criticism is due us, but on the other
hand it has tended to divide the campus into
two camps—those who can wear red sweaters and those who can't. If this wide divergence of feeling existed only on the campus;
perhaps it would not. be too serious. However, there is the clanger of a similar feeling
being retained when the graduating classes
go out to make their p*laco in this modern
world.
Willi the development of tho A' bomb,
and now tho 'H' bomb, no educated person
can dare forget their moral obligations I"
society as a whole. The scientists who have
uncovered   from   nature   these   new   atomic
truths tend to turn them over to the engineer, who by definition is an applied scientist.
The evolution of man has proceeded mainly through hi.s brain, and he has now advanced to the point where he possesses the
power to annihilate practically all life on this
earth. Because the function of the engineer
is putting new scientific discoveries to practical use, iand bcause blame is attached to
use and not discovery, it becomes imperative
for engineers to become aware of the social
and moral consequences of their acts. Engineers must become aware of these facts and
Iry to leave their technological isolation for
the world of human affairs—into a world
where results cannot be so easily predicted.
Non-engineers must in turn realize the
engineers plight in this modern world. Both
groups must work together in this scientific
world, and a good place to start this cooperation is right here on this campus,

This year the Engineers' Ball prom-
, ises   to   be   bigger   and   better   than
ever. The displays prepared by the
■■ diffeo-ent groups aro cuts binding. The
j work of design and construction of
I these working models has occupied
j the spare time of a large number of
i our Engineere during the past weeks.
; On   Wednesday   and   Thursday   they
will be on display at the Commodore
i for all Engineers to see.
This year the Engineers arc to have
] an added highlight on the .second night
| srf the ball in the crowning of their
I queen. My sincere thanks to you
1 lovely girLs who  have da;* so much
:<; make a success of our new ven-
! lure. I know that each Engineer will
; find it very difficult to select one of
yon ns Queen.
, Thc Engineers on this campus are
the  example of  piety  and  prudence.
hi this issue of tiie Uby.sxey we have
dlustrated that we have a keen appreciation of litem:, ure and clarity
of expression.
' Unfortunately our rigorous c uirses
provide no outlet for literary ability
or a subtle sense of humor, lt should

Dear  Sir;
I wish io thank Spike Furry and
the members of the Outdoor Clu'b
who spent so much time decorating
and preparing tbe Armories for the
Bonus Ball. I would also l/ike to
poind out that thc same amount of
wax was used on Saturday as in all
previous Armory dances. The stickiness of the floor was caused by the
incorrect 'application of the wax by
an inexperienced janitor.
Love,
Walt Ewting.

Work, the mechanical engineers on the |
campus are to be the hosts to students
from five north western American
Universit/es. The occasion i.s ihe annual American Society of Mechanical
Engineers student convention. This is
the second time that UBC has been
the host college, and the event .should
prove ot interest to all engineering
students who may be ar-ennd the
campus after the completion of exams.
The dates for the convention are
May 4 to May 6.
The student branch of the ASME
expecV that at least 250 students will
register on the opening day. Of this
number about 150 is expected to represent the American colleges.
Two students from each branch wil!
Give talks on vaitlous engineering
.subjects and prizes are offered for
th« paper which is best presented.
Last y«ar at the conference in Seattle, UBC was successful in winning
two o# the main prizes when George
Plant and Dune McBwan won 2nd
and 3rd place respectively. This year i
we hops to do even better.
Other conference events wtill cem- '
aist of field trips to various Vancouver engineering works such as
Fraser Mills. Dominion Bridge and
Sumner Iron Works, One of the feature events will he an all day trip
to iiirmpect the PUlp ffill at Wood-
fibre. Formal banquets and Informal
evening entertainments will provide
contrast to the technical sessions.
Dr. MacKenzie will give the wel-
oome address to delegates on Wednesday morning, May 4. Student talks
are scheduled to be preserved f.n

Editorial Continued From Page 1
which raised over $600 to aid crippled children. Two thirds
of this sum was raised amongst ourselves. Our paper printed
a cynical congratulatory note. The Engineers only real thanks
from the students of UBC was a well appreciated letter from
the Arts Undergraduate Society, our friendly and respected
rivals.
Yet after these accomplishments, which are hut a few of
many others, wc are still greeted with derision from our college
press. The engineering students are used to this and now accept
such ridicule and unfounded accusations, as during the past
AMS elections, with the proverbial grain of salt.
. History has shown this situation not unusual. People scoffed at Fulton's steamboat, at Newcomen's Engine, at Stephenson's locomotive, the Wright brothers' airplane, Henry Ford's
car, and many other engineering triumphs. But what would
our prsent life be without these inventions?
No mister editor, and staff, you are not hurting us. You
arc only showing your own ignorance and narrow thinking. We
know what we arc doing. We will make your future life better
and happier. You will scoff, but we will still have the satisfac- ;
tion of a job well done.
The preceding editorial does not represent the opinion of
the editorial board of the Ubyssey. ';

EDMONTON — (CUP) — Latest sport to sweep local kempus

For a raid body the characteristic
nam   is   ihal   shown   in   Case   II.
Ft em these diaphragms it can be
calculated that the efficiency of the
t tenia! destruction engine is much
hi: her with a hoi body than with the
colder   specimen.
Aho <blainecl from the diaphragms:
(1) Work to be done lo overcome
resistance to activity. This work was
found to be higher for the old body.
<2> For Case I. No other engine
working under the same pressure can
more efficiently lead to eternal destruction.
(.'!i The Mean Co-ordinate or Co-
oi'crato: It was found that Case I had
a   fairly   good   co-ope ration.
(4) In Case II, the cycle was adio-
thermal. and in Case I isobatic. This
means that throughout cycle No. II the
»m*ine stayed at a constant temperature, whereas No. I warmed up considerably.
The best fuel for the tests was
found to lie aqueous alcohol. Thi'
A.as   adopted   only   after    long   trials
C« a y
The use of the first fuel caused thc
warming-up jjeriod to be consk!*.-
ably^shortened, and the consumpt.on
thereafter was comparatively small.
The only deleterious effect was found
to be on the running life of '.he
engine. Bad knocking of the knee
action drvelr.ped after a short time
with rich mixtures cf the stronger
fuel.
The engine results showed ninth
affinity for the sterling or constant
pressure cycle. Under constant pressure of large amounts of sterling,
(he work to be done to overcon.e
resistance    <\)    w^s   much   reduced.
Test conclusion: No home should
lie without one. Can be adapted tor
multitudincus uses.

won their first conference game at home, a$id also their last. .
