 EMPTY SEAT at head table of Applied Science ball is filled by surprised pubster,
Michael Ames, who is welcomed by Ed. Patton, Civil Engineering 3, in the absence of EUS
vice-president Monte McKay. Ames, who was seated between Chancellor Sherwood Lett
and President N. A. M. MacKenzie, took Monte's place card home as a souvenir. Other
guests at the table were Dean G. C. Gunning, J. Merchant, registrar of Association of
Professional Engineers; Mr. Oscar Orr and Eric Hartley, president of.Engineering Institute of Canada, Vancouver Branch. —Photo by Dick Dolman
EUS 'Cannon Stealing'
Epic Proved Dirty Lie
The reported "stealing" of a,
400-oound   cannon   from   Royal!
Roads  bv  Applied  Science  students was revealed as a hoax by.
The Ubvssev. I
At the same time it was learned that Applied Science students
had to enlist the help of lawyers
nnd the police lo recover their
pagan idol. Joe Ble4z, who was;
stolen from under their noses
Monday afternoon.
In the Anolied Science issue
last Thursday it was claimed i
that four Applied Science stu-!
dents travelled to Victoria and]
spirited the. cannon from Royal]
Roads Tri-Sefvices College. The!
name issue carried a picture off
the "cannon" enclosed in a can-,
vas  cover
Investigating in Victoria. Monday, two Ubvssev reporters who
talked  to Roval  Roads officials;
discovered that the Applied Sci-1
encemen     reached    the cannon;
but   weren't   strong   enough   to
lift   it  over  the  shrubbery.
In   frustration,   the   students
lifted the canvas cover from theI
cannon   and   returned   to   UBC
with  it as their onlv souvenir.
Further studv of the picture car-;
ried in Thursday's issue reveals j
that the canvas cover was stuf-1
fed to make the final result re-1
semble  the  brass  cannon.
The Applied Science students;
do not even possess the cover at j
the moment. Hours after their!
paper appeared. FOUR UBC of
ficer cadets entered the Applied,
Science buildinn. home of FIVE
HUNDRED     voung   thugs,   and:
carried off thc cover.    It is now !
safelv back  in Roval Roads.
Monday afternoon, exactly at,
4:06.   24   students   representing:
the  three  services,   carried  out
a   well-olanned   assault   on   the
Applied Science common room.
Seconds later, thev made off in
a  car  with  Joe  Blotz.  the  Ap-j
plied   Science   faculty's   legendary mechanical dummy. i
A buele. which was heard by:
manv students on the campus, i
signalled the completion of the!
plan. The dummv was hidden in |
HMCS Discovery . where it was i
tho truest of honour at, a Navy
mess dinner Monday night.
Is Unexplained
In one of tht weirdest happenings in recent
years at UBC, the vice-president of the Applied
Science Undergraduate Society missed the
"Red Bacchanal'' at the Commodore Wednesday night.
Monte McKay was not present at the head table to welcome patrons Dr. N. A- M. MacKenzie, Dean Gunning or any of
the distinguished guests. Over 300 Applied Science ktiftients
were stunned at the spectacle of their annual ball held without
the vice-president.
None of the Applied Science executive could give any explanation for the disappearance of one of the top men of' the
iacuity. At 1:00 a.m. this morning they still seemed stunned by
the mystery.
, The disappearance of McKay was strangely reminiscent of
an incident in the fall of 1951 when Ubyssey Editor-in-chief
Allan Fotheringham, then a columnist on the paper, disappeared
from a formal dance and was found penniless and practically
naked in the bush at Horseshoe Bay.
Thinking back more recently, it also resembled a "kidnapping" in 1952 when Fotheringham was chained to a lamppost at Georgia and Granville. Monday's disappearance of McKay followed the same pattern, the man in question just vanished into thin air.
The Ubyssey joins in mourning with the entire Applied
Science faculty as this paper realizes how unfortunate it is for
the vice-president of an organization to miss so important a
function as the "Red Bacchanal.'
Applied Science students may rest assured that The Ubyssey will do everything in its power in the hunt for the missing
student and that the Applied Science executive will be notified
once the body is discovered.

A joke is a joke, ia a joke, as Gertrude SHein would say,
but this time the joke has gone too far. The Applied Science
faculty is justly noted'for its pranks and students on thla
campus have been greatly amused by the shenanigans of
the exuberant member* of that faculty.
But when the vice-president of the faculty can not
even bother to show up at the annual Applied Science tell
there is definitely something wrong.
Mr. McKay may think it is funny to suddenly disappear before the ball, but the hundreds, nay thousands, of

Brotherhood Week
"Dozens of Vancouver organizations which have been
working without much publicity under the Vancouver Civic
Unity Council for the development of civic unity are receiving a share of popular applause this week as they are
simultaneously producing shows, demonstrations and panels
as a part of National Brotherhood Week.
The idea behind all this is to make Vancouver a better
spot for living, not only by helping minorities achieve full
Social privileges but also by educating majority members
so that they can accept as a part of Canadian culture the
unique contributions minority groups can make.
This University's contribution to National Brotherhood Week will be in the form of a panel discussion, sponsored by the Civil Liberties Union and Parliamentary Forum today at noon in Arts 100. H. Goyert, member of the
Co-Ordinating Council on Citizenship, J. Miyazawa of the
international of the Woodworkers Union, A. Scow of the
Native Brotherhood, will discuss problems of minority integration.
Besides this, the Civil Liberties Union, through its
affiliation with the Vancouver Civic Unity Council, will play
a part in the organization of a brotherhood variety program
around the theme, "A Living Newspaper," which will bring
Brotherhood Week to a climax in the Vogue Theatre at 2:30
this Sunday afternoon, February 28. Annis Stukus of the
B.C. Lions and Bill Rea of CKNW will be headline speakers.
Besides its part in today's forum and its affiliation
through the C.L.U.'s representative on the Civic Unity
Council, U.B.C. shows its interest in the problem of miv
nority rights by the fact that three U.B.C. professors, including President N. A. M. MacKenzie, are on the executive
of the Civic Unity Council.
A U.B.C. professor once told his class, as an illustration
of the effect an "all-white" or "all-anything" policy can have
upon a nation, that "Australia is certainly one of the dullest
countries in the world.
The theme of that lecture could well be considered the
theme of Brotherhood Week and the year-long activities
of the Civic Unity Council. Canada needs the new ideas and
stimulation internal sub-cultural groups can give.
The hundreds of employees of Franeschini's Canadian
shoe industry or the thousands of readers of novels by Joseph Conrad would agree heartily with the statement, that
men who have lived in two cultures often have the bright
ideas that bring progress.
On the other hand, the Vancouver Civic Unity Council
and the coordinators of National Brotherhood Week realize
that this productivity is impossible when the minority member faces prejudice or lack of understanding out of which
springs discrimination.
"Unity, without uniformity" could properly be called
the theme of Brotherhood Week.

It was last summer, when I

Then Mr. Pearson came into

Mr. Pearson frowned at my

"Three weeks." I replied.
Mr. CamDnev choked. I guessed he didn't read the ship calendar.

The President's Message:
The Pharmacy Undergraduate Society's purpose as an
organization is to sponsor, promote and coordinate all activities concerning Pharmacy students. These activities in
elude^publicixing Pharmacy as a faculty on the campus as
well as endeavoring to put-all fields o f tiie profession before
the interested student.
To accomplish this task the Ph.U.S. sponsors films,
t»nel discussions, and guest speakers to Illustrate or describe the opportunities available, the facilities of the
Ubyssey, University Radio Society along with Intramural
eities are responsible for getting Pharmacy bettor
m on the campus, while the writings of our Publicity
esentative in both local and national journals report
our activities throughout B.C. and the rest of Canada.
In our endeavour to Improve the relations of the faculty
on the campus we do not forgot the social phase. New students are introduced to their colleagues through stages, teaa,
skating parties and ln tho spring the annual Graduation
Banquet and Formal. ^_	
KJf   JflPUHililllllP
Criticism has long been levelled at the profession of
Pharmacy with regard to the high cost of medication. What
few people realize, however, is the fact that this cost of
| medication involves several intangible benefits which must
be considered.
Life expectancy has been increased for persons suffering from such ailments as congestive heart failure, diabetes,
tuberculosis, pernicious anaemia and countless others. The
number of people reaching old age has, in fact, increased to
such an extent that their care and treatment has given rise
to a new field of medicine called geriatrics.
With the advent of the new chemotherapeutic agents
J and antibiotics, treatment time for many diseases has been
markedly reduced. This results in a shorter period of convalescence and a quick return to normal life. Earning power
lis thus restored in a much shorter time.
The elucidation of the action of Cortison and ACTH
I in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis has helped to restore a more normal way of life to many suffering and
crippled arthritics.
All of these things did not just happen, however, they
occurred gradually. Perhaps they occurred too gradually
for people to realize that they have shorter periods of illness
j and less pain to endure whilejhey are living longer.
The cost of development of production of the newer
| types of medicinals is tremendous, but the Pharmaceutical
industry has achieved the reputation of returning a higher
percentage of their net earnings to research than any other
I industry.
Drugs are more expensive than they were twenty years
ago but they could cost twice as much and still be twice as
economical, judged by their ability to reduce death and
disease in proportion to health in the community.

The Silicone Fluids have an unusual commbination of properties which has led to their use in many varied applications.
They have been used in Engineering devices as damping
media and lubricants. Since the fluids do not freeze or boil, they
have found unlimited use in torsion machine's and as lubricating
agents for any moving parts of machinery located in any climate.

A Pharmacy Student's Prayer
Dear Lord perched high on heaven's lid
Look down on me vour little
And  in   this  last  and  dreadful
Help me with vour Almighty
I lapsed a little. Lord I know;
Sometimes I hiked down to the
I danced a bit and skated too,
But never more than others do.
Perhaps to vou. O Lord, it seems
I    wasted    time  on    foolish
But if vou know this little guy,
I'll bet a buck vou'd do as I.
Oh Lord, perched high on heaven's lid
Look down on me your little
Foreet the times I've been an ass
And helo me now to get a pass!

The series continues Friday
in Bellingham and concludes Saturday night in the War Memorial Gvm.
Tuesday'* game UBC was
never in the game as the American kept pouring it on. The
score at the half was a decisive
41-1.9, count. The reason for the
loss lies in the dismal performance of Jim Carter and the absence of Keith Merrill. Glen
Drummond. Jim Pollack, and
Kevin O'Connell.
Carter, the star of the UBC

of the vear as he got only three

The fifteen will be making
the trip in the role of defending

three years. Last season Albert
Lalthewaite's proteges split the

Alberta Golden Bears won the Hamber Cup for the fourth
consecutive year as they defeated UBC Thunderbirds Tuesday night at Kerrisdale Arena to win the two game total goals
series 16-3. .♦-—--         	
It was the same story both with U^Cs B(* Giegerich pick-
nights — Alberta was too heavy }"* up *ou* and Alberta s Cyril
and too fast for Dick Mitchell's!1?" and. Don Gouriey getting
bovs.    Bears were obviously in
better shape and were able to
skate UBC right off the puck.
When the Birds did threaten to
score Bear goalie Jack Lyndon
lived uo to his reputation by
stopping almost everything that
came his wav.
Bears dimunitive Bob Stewart
was the star of the second game
as he did tho hat trick one better bv getting one goal in the
second period and three more
in the third frame. Always the
opportunist. Stewart scored three
of his four goals bv picking up
a loose ouck and flying in on undefended Bird goalie Don Anderson.
The game was rough but not
dlrtv as* 300 odd fans were
treated to a good rugged game
despite the lopsided score. Referees Bob Glover and Bill Wilks
called   a   total  of   15   penalties,
Ing   and   Don   Gouriey
three apiece. Bears Ed John received a 10 minute misconduct

Cup time has rolled around once more with the Hamber Cupl
just completed and the World Cup just getting underway and I
got to looking over the schedules of our major sports teams.   They
are schedules any university would be proud of, with one glaring]
American football and basketball as members of the Evergreen Conference have ideal collegiate schedules. Rugby and ice-
hockey are not so lucky, having to rely on city competition. However, their schedules have been remedied in a big way by trips to |
UCLA, California, Alberta, and Colorado. .
But how about soccer,- the last of our major sports. To my
knowledge the farthest md probably only trip a UBC soccer team
has ever been on was last year's junket to Powell River to play
a jcam equivalent in calibre to a mediocre high school team. From
the beginning of October to the end of March the Varsity soccer
team's lope opposition is five commercial teams.
And now the athletic department has been busy scheduling
rugby's new series with UCLA and hockey's Colorado games. That's
xine—but what about soccer? Shouldn't at least an attempt be made
to get the fitba boys out of Vancouver? It is kind of ironic that the
hockey team has the games but not the players whereas the soccer
team has the players but not the games.
I was talking to soccer coach Ed Luckett the other day and
ho was moaning about how hard it was to keep up team morale
and get his boys in peak form with no real objective to prep for.
He sugested a series with an  American  collegiate team  and II
am going to develop his thought in hopes it might lead to some-1
thing. ' j
This soccer series could''be modeled on rugby's World Cupl
play with the University of California. The opposition could come
from the same vicinity, it being the  closest place a long way froni|
Vancouver, if you get what 1 mean.
It could also be a four game total point series with two gamesI
at each university, playing Thursday noon and Saturday afternoonf
games. I
In my opinion the logical opponent would be Stanford Uni-1
vcrsitv. The reasons favoring Stanford are many. First, for yearsI
the "Big Red" have consistently turned out the best Californianl
collegiate soccer team and it would take a good team to give our
n any
penalty for protesting a holding
penalty too loudlv.
The heavier and faster Bears i Birds a battle. Secondly, UBC and Stanford" do not meet.

UBC got one back before the
period ended when Moe Cunningham backhanded a loose

Bear's not.
Birds apparently rejuvinated

dominated the plav in the second period. But the Bears,
thanks to some sensational goal

tthletic activity at the present time. Also, for some reason Stan-
lord seems to be especially well-known in Vancouver and they|
.«liould have excellent gate appeal.
If Stanford for some reason is not feasible, the University of I
San Francisco would be a good substitute. It was this team that
wanted to come up here last year to play our Birds under the
auspices of Callister Park, California would not be desirable as |
it would detract from the gate of the rugby series
The fact that Callister Park and the Pacific Coast soccer
league wanted to sponsor a collegiate soccer series last year indicates that there must be some merit in this plan
It has been darkly rumo.-ed that UBC has not engaged in any
college soccer competition in the past because they did not feel
thc calibre of this university was up to the American level.
As a student in California for four years I had plenty of opportunity to see the American brand and compare it with our
I believe, if anything, the Birds are a few goals better than
the American teams. The 3-0 victory scored by tho New Westminster Royals over the U.S. champion Chicago Falcons last Sop |
tomber should be an indication.
Well  there's the plan. Lei's make it a reality
