Rigged Elections' Claimed
HOAXED and humbled Engineers return
the stolen Law School motto in obedience
to a fake County Court order. The EUS
purloined the motto, which is fixed in metal
letters above the entrance to the school,
to enhance the Godiva Gallop last Thursday. They were presented yesterday with
a County Court suit instituted by law stu
dents for 8300 damages. Engineers bowed to
the "Queen's writ" and returned the sign
yesterday under the supervision of. law
students. LUS solicitor, Herbert W. Ray
of the grand old firm of Bourne, Ray, Gilbert and Bourne revealed afterwards that
through some error the writ was invalid
by reason of being a fake.

Politicians Pack UCC Meeting
Election of four political club,

More than 100 Fort Camp males went on a parity raid
Tuesday   night.   Seven   'souvenirs"   were   collected.
Rooms of Ann Wesbrook Hall were ransacked by
"about 20" of the raiders who entered by a rear door
after being thwarted when they attacked the front door,
shortly after 8 p.m.
Fire extinguishers were used to subdue the victims
who, witnesses say, "took an active part" in the fray.
One window was broken and water was sprayed in
the halls during the raid.
Marie Murdock, don of Ann Wesbrook, summoned
police after the melee had been two hours old. One RCMP
officer rushed to the scene and scattered the mob except
tor one student who sprayed him with a fire extinguisher.
The villain escaped in the night.
Meeting to decide upon disciplinary action was held
last  night  at Fort Camp.
UCC president Bell replied he
would 'give equal treatment"
to each club, no matter who was
on his executive.
Twenty-five of the UCC's 70
clubs signed a protest petition
following the meeting. They
claimed the meeting was unconstitutional as it was held in

The election results will not
be contested, however, since
Bell „won by a margin large
enough to exclude a possibility'
of a "rigged election."
The complaint was laid after
AMS public relations officer
Gordon Armstrong and AMS coordinator Don McCallum discovered some students in the
library February 22 in unauthorized possession of about 100
blank ballots. They had apparently been lost by some scrutineer, Armstrong said.
Some had already been placed
in the ballot box, but Armstrong
collected all the remaining
blanks, and turned them over
to USC chairman Robin Scott,
who was supervising the Third
Slate elections.
Armstrong would not divulge
the names of the students concerned since he had promised
to protect them if they gave him
the blank ballots.
Wilson said that several cases
of "obvious stuffing" had been
discovered when the ballots
were being counted, but that the
election "could not have been
affected by any stuffed ballots
that were not discovered."

The Faculty of Pharmacy, one of UBC's newer professional
schools, fulfills a vital need of this province. In the years since
its first graduating class in 1949, it has contributed in every
way to the expansion and progress of Pharmacy in this province.
The public has long visualized the Pharmaceutical profession as exemplified by the corner drug-store. Although on the
surface this is indeed the most apparent phase of the drug
business, it must not be considered the only one. This somewhat erroneous impression is changing as the importance and
knowledge of Pharmacy not only to the doctor but also to the
community as a whole is realized.
It is not intended here to deal with all the necessary
phases of Pharmacy which aid the physician in maintaining
the health of the people, but rather to show that the profession
of Pharmacy is designed to protect the public and as such is
charged with a great responsibility.
The Pharmacist of today must realize that his education
can never end for keeping abreast of all new developments
in the medical field is an essential part of his work. The medical
professions are leading more and more on Pharmacy for information of a technical as well as theropeutic nature concerning the many new drugs resulting from the intensive
medical and pharmaceutical research now being carried out.
In this capacity the Pharmacist must be ever prepared to
fulfill his professional responsibility.
As advances in medicine continue to be made in the future,
Pharmacy will carry on in its important role in the development and distribution of drugs. It must not be forgotten that
the Pharmicist is an important member of the health professions; his function is one of primary importance to the health
and well-being of the entire community.
STAN BAKER 3rd Year Rx
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In the belief (perhaps misguided) that constructive criticism is the Mother of im-
- provement, I would like to ex-
. press the greatest dissatisfaction for the dining facilities
provided by this University.
It has been my nightmare during the past year to eat dinner
in the University cafeteria, and
on the basis of this experience
I would suggest that the standard of comfort, cleanliness
and cuisine cannot be lower
anywhere on the North American Continent.
Cracked cups bound and are
in themselves a breeding
ground for germs, and recognized as such by even the most
incompetent medical authorities. Two completely unimaginative dishes are presented
every evening on a "take it or
go withcui" basis and if one
accepts the thirty five cent
dish, one is invariably forced
to accept the greater of two
evils as far as vegetables are
concerned. It appears to be
completely beyond the forces
of one man to maintain the
tables and ashtrays in a state
of reasonable cleanliness and
the penitentiary-like atmosphere of the Cafeteria could
not be less conducive to the
enjoyment of a meal.
Against this picture of slap-
happy presentation, we have
the facilities in the Brock
which are excellent, and which
deserve a great deal of praise.
Under these circumstances I
would like to suggest that the
cafeteria be restricted to serving beverages and doughnuts
in the evning for the benefit
of those students who do not
want to eaf dinner, while the
dining facilities be transferred
to the Brock, so that the students staying for dinner could
enjoy the high standard which
the Brock maintains in its presentation of the meal; the choice
over and above the actual dinner, of hamburgers, grilled
sandwiches etc.: and the pleasant surroundings.
Finally I am not interested
in receiving a reply to this
criticism and suggestion from
the gentlemen responsible for
the present deplorable state of
Yours truly,
John Green.
Critic   Ames   Criticizes
University   Theatrics
F   7
Despite the anguished protestations of theatrical fellow travellers it has become Increasingly evident over the past few weeks that there runs rampant on this campus a malady
that may yet strike us all dead. This disease, to which we may refer as hamism, or buffoonery-
ism, has already so inflicted a number of people that they are enabled to clutter up th#
stage and interfere with those more talented and of more serious intent.
I was willing to believe that Back to Methuselah was just an unfortunate accident, but
after Rosmerholm produced by the Frederic Wood Theatre, and now Maid of the Mountains
under the auspices of UBC Musical Society, it is evident that hamism is a highly contagious
campus disease, and is one which is probably here to stay for awhile.
Methuselah, one of Shaw's
windiest, even more windy
than his usual preface, is a
white elephantine play for any
dramatic group no matter how
much talent it boasts. When
artists for that matter, are to
improve themselves they must
constantly compare, and b e
willing to be compared, with
their betters.
Being   compared   to   one's
hamism, as it were, rears its
ugly head the play is bound
to be a boring flop (which it
was, despite all the back-slapping and glad-handing Players
Club received from those who
decided to be liked rather
than to be honest).
Henrik Ibsen's Rosmerholm
demands good direction and a
mature cast, and the FWT
production lacked both, noticeably the latter. The leading partners Rosmer and Rebecca climaxed the three-act
drama, at the very end, by
jumping into a nearby mill-
race. The production left one
thinking it would have been
much improved had they jumped in two acts earlier.
What is surprising is that
most of the Romerholm cast
is of semi-professional standing,
and so should not be so susceptible to hamism. Obviously
the leading lady and her hero
were carried away by what
they thought was their own importance, and equally obvious
was the fact that they were not
quite that important.
Now "Maid of the Mountains," although well received
by most who trudged out, including Ubyssey Critic Short-
house, was one of those farcial
little things geared to the intelligence of a nitwit, and unless you are in a nitwit frame
of mind, the operetta leaves
you wishing you had brought
a gallon instead of a mickey.
The "Maid" was saved, however, by a good stage setting,
a competent orchestra, a general scarcity of croaky-voiced
singers, and one or two good
actors. But again, this hamistic
acting, even if it was just
by a few culprits, kept rearing
ugly heads all over the stage.
Let me say here and now
that this is indeed a highly
dangerous situation, and that it
must be stopped before it ruins
the efforts even of the best.
Bad acting, like the bubonic
plague, should be stamped out,
and bad actors, like false idols,
should be shaken until their
teeth rattle. I actually tremble
to think of what may happen
if this situation is not rectified.
Now some people will undoubtedly defend Methuselah
and "The Maid" as being good
productions compared to previous university performances.
They may be quite correct in
their comparison, but what
these people perhaps do not
realize is that if actors, or anv
equals, as faltering as it may
be, is just not enough.
And in defense of my own
perhaps overly critical approach let me say this: there
'are enough people around will,
ing to back-slap and glad-hand
so there is no need for mt
to be that way also. Furthermore, that type of hyprocritical
treatment is anything but an
antidote to hamism. '
Someone should take swipes
at those ugly heads when they
rear themselves.

FrMh Air
Dear Sir:
While Mr. Henke advocated
that we allow the "fresh air
of new thought to help us" out
of some crisis or other "instead
of turning only to the wisdom
gained by our forefathers" and
suggested that "we temper the
old orthodoxies whose thinking
seems to be buried in and
derived from the hoary ancients" it is not unlikely that
members of the English Department, reading, shuddered.
And when he continues to wallow along with, "religion has
pandered itself to sensationalism and charged emotionalism" one can only assume that
he is quoting his favorite 19th
century journalist, for no one
today constructs such prose
naturally. Mr. Henke is an advocate of progression (to use
his terms) not retrogression but
what i9 he doing writing bad
19th century prose.
Splashing along behind Mr.
Henke one finds that he has a
facility for keeping afloat, a
resirable skill for one to have
while at sea. But he leaves
little behind him to clutch—for
anyone who doesn't float as
well as he—except the idea
that the function of the Church
is to relieve human suffering.
The bulk of his polemic seeks
to show that it is not doing
this. Now since the Church has
never purported to exist for
that purpose everything that he
has stated, beyond the main
premise,  is quite superfluous.
What the Church has done
since its institution isn't found
solely in a history of the
Church as an organization. Rather, to me it seems that the
record of the Church's existence is found in the manner in
which men have lived in response to its endeavours. Whoever and whatever works or
has worked in the western
world for the maintenance of
peace and the relief of human
suffering—and Mr. Henke is
very concerned about human
suffering, like the wealthy tourist in Europe who sees art subjects in gold or silver as things
to be meJlcu down for the benefit of the poor—is in large part
a product of the Christian philosophy. Nor can the Church
be  condemned   for  failing   to
reach an ideal. The Church
works with,.and through men
and moral perfection is an individual matter. There is ne
progressively higher state of
moral being to be attained from
one century to the next. The
idea of progress is more ap«
posite to such a matter as technology.And to use the same
measure to a s c e rt a i n the
achievements of the Church as
would be used in ascertaining
those of, for example, a particular government, the method Mr.
Henke uses, is intellectual incompetence.

The Editor Ubyssey, '
Dear Sir:
Professor Hooley's editorial
aroused the interest of my calculus class. The success of these
engineers in uncovering ,tfoe
following solution is worthy
of note.
They suggest that Ralf had
—4 coke bottles to begin with
(yes, minus four). That's the
same as having —5 bottles
with one left over for the Arts-
man. Ralf took his fifth (—1)
and that left —4 for Murray.
Each man did the same thinf
in turn.
Is this ridiculous? Not quite.
There are lots of answer* twe
consecutive solutions differ by
the fifth power of five (3125)
so the smallest sensible possibility is 3125 greater than —4.
We conclude that Ralf had at
least 3121 to begin with, and
took 624 himself. Working
through, this leaves 255 for
John. At two cents each, John
got $5.10, enough for a jolly
good time at the Engineer's
ball, which, as everyone knows,
was a ripping success.

Lay Off That
It's    Powerful
Efforts towards greater safety in chemical plants cannot
be overdone, but one can defeat this purpose by invited ridicule
by including such harmless substances as sucrose  and  wall
plaster in lists of dangerous materials in various handbooks.
In order tc keep this in bal
ance, we herewith publish the
following resume of the far more
dangerous properties of Oxygen.
Oxygen is a very toxic gas
and an extreme fire hazard,
Humans exposed to a concentration of .000001 p.p.m. die within
a few minutes showing symptoms closely resembling those
o-f cyanide poisoning—blue face,
etc. In higher concentrations,
e.g. about 20%, the toxic effect
is somewhat delayed: it takes
about 2.5 billion inhalations before death results. The reason
for this delay is the difference
in mechanism evidenced. The
high concentration of Oxygen apparently contributes to a complex process known as aging, of
which very little is known except that it is always fated.
The main disadvantage of
Oxygen at the 20% concentration however, is the fact that
it is habit-forming. The first inhalation (taken at birth) is sufficient to make addiction permanent.  After that, any  consider-
make the attempt is the chemist.

on   the   market.

A "first" for UBC is being rung up by the Pharmacy
girls this year in the approaching installation of the first Canadian chapter of Lambda Kappa Sigma, the only professional
sorority to be organized on this campus.
Founded at the Massechusetts $ —
College of Pharmacy in 1913,
Lambda Kappa Sigma now has
thirty-three active and fifteen
graduate chapters throughout
the United States. The installation of Alpha Lambda chapter
here in British Columbia will
be its first step into international pharmacy.
With the help and encouragement of Chi and Chi graduate
chapters from the College of
Pharmacy at the University of
Washington, the pharmacy girls
here at UBC formed a Pre-
Lams club early last fall. In
co-operation with Dean Mawds-
ley and the Women's Undergraduate Society, President Ellen Arnet and the executive
drew up a constitution and bylaws and started on a program
of social and professional activities.
Membership Is open to any
girl registered in Pharmacy, the
only scholastic standard being
the 60% average required to
enter the Faculty. Now, after a
college year as an active club,
the group is petitioning Grand
Council for a charter and installation as a chapter of Lambda
Kappa Sigma.
Highlights of "the fall term

We'd do better in a skating rink.
The lecturers they treat  us well,
They all come in with ringing bell;
The lecture starts and when it  is through
Nobody ever has a clue.
The parties we throw sure are great,
Though songs like this will never rate;
(And it was written in 3-6-1).
Writing it was lots of fun,

Grey and wine
Feed  them  strychnine   while   they   dine
Whiskey,  brandy,   syrup   or  squills
We're the onos who make the pills
Yea Pharmacy!
