Brock Hall, after their good clean fun Tuesday noon. Engineers had lots of fun, tearing
phones nit  the wall, doors off their hinges,
and typewriters off desks. They stole everything from the office except a large rim
desk, which was too big to carry through ihe
door, and two female reporters, who cowered   under   rim  desk.

Letters to the
On Schedule
»
In the Spring, the Bard tells us, a young man's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of love. At UBC, when Spring
arrives, things are a bit different, at least within the Faculty
of Applied Science. On this campus the first nice Spring
day generally coincides with the presentation of the Engineer's Pep Meet, the Redshirts' annual paean to pornography. Here, the infantile minds and adolescent glands
of what after-dinner speakers sometimes refer to a.s the
"leaders and builders of tomorrow" are led on a sort of barnyard tour of Sex— which is seldom funny, but practically
always anatomical.
For two solid hours, 900 or so of Canada's Hope For
The Future guffaw in cro-magnon delight as a veritable torrent of obscenity cascades from the Auditorium stage,
reaches into the cavity of their tiny pointed ears, and tickles
the  visceral matter   beneath   their  skulls.
Finally, one of the chief goons will announce a raid
on the Ubyssey offices. The "reasons" vary: this year, apparently, it wa.s because the Engineers' edition was too
clean. (Most of the material submitted would bring a maidenly blush to the cheeks of Jack the Ripper and couldn't be
published on a toilet wall, let alone the pristine columns
of this newspaper. But when it's Spring, any old excuse
for an hour's vandalism will do).
Obediently as ever, the Engineers marched over to the
Pub Offices, and carried off every stick of furniture. Then,
an hour or so later, they carried it all back—or most of it,
at any rate. Whatever is missing, the EUS will pay for, thanks
to Treasurer Al Thackray's ever-lovin' budget-freeze system.
Net result: A few pubsters had a little excercise on a
bracing Spring day; the Pub gets a few new chairs and typewriter ribbons, courtesy the EUS; the Office looks cleaner
than it has in months; and four hundred mental midgets have
gratified their strange predilection for obscenity and vandalism, without doing too much actual harm.
Considering the number of morons at large in the Engineering Building, things could have been a lot worse.
A Messy Campaign
Our new council i.s now virtually complete; the power
plays, messy campaigns and special-interest voting are over.
Our haphazard electoral process has come to a halt for another year, having spewn out some twelve new and eager
faces.
We don't have to worry about "slush" funds, we don't
worry about ''smear" campaigns, or in fact, any of the other-
election failures that our downtown papers have been concerned about recently.
No . . . we can be happy that the only thing wrong about
this UBC election is that it has been sloppily run, and again,
most ol the students have been swayed by special-interest
considerations or plagued  by ignorance.
For example, the Engineers gave forth the '■selected''
list for each and every Engineer to use as a guide at the Pep
meet yesterday.
For example, two Engineers running the polls in Brock
Hall Wednesday made suggestions about one of their men
running for office to some voters within the hearing of this
writer.
For example, the counting of ballots wa.s handled so poorly that several dozen could be stolen, AND SOME WERE (by
a Ubyssey reporter) without the knowledge of the election
officials.
Our Joe-College popularity poll is over, but we can look
forward to it next year.
By TONY GAMBRILL
Today's exciting episode in
the true-life daytime serial "if
you like playing Monopoly, —■
Jayne Mansfield has a set."
Titled, "I was a fruit for Dean
MacFee," it is the story of a man
who gave his all for the Royal
Commission on the Fruit Tree
Industry. But let this poor slob
tell his own story.
'I am Irwin Spink and I am
in 3rd Year Commerce (Procuring option) and I voted for
George Jones for President because he likes children."
I was doing my lab in the New
Delhi  two   weeks  ago   when   a
shabby panhandler shuffled over
to me. I always did have a soft
spot for old Accounting Profs, so
I dropped a can of Vitalis into
iiis outstretched palms.
"Son," he croaked, "Dean Mac-
Fee has a mission for you."
"You mean Ibn Sand wants
him to get me as a contact
man'.'''
"No, he needs help on his fruit
investigation."    <
So it was that I became a Mackintosh Red and for eight hours
hung from a gnarled apple tree
in a lonely orchard in Strictly,
B.C.
My first problem was how to
hang.     After  careful  consideration  I  decided   to  sling  a   ham-]
mock   and     at   least   keep   my
blood   from   congealing   at   one
particular end of my body.
I had started at six o'clock in
the morning and within half an
hour a glistening sheet of f rost j
had formed over my Burberry.
As the early morning sun broke
through, I settled clown to my
unexpurgated version of Lady'
Chatterly's Lover.
About ten o'clock I noticed
a small blonde perched in another tree about twenty yards
away. I leaned gently forward
and called out.
"Hello there. What are you
doing?"
She looked up.
"Oh, hello, I am a pear."
"You certainly have," I shouted back.
"No, I said I am a pear , . . for
Dean MacFee, you know. What
are you doing?"
"Getting interested," I murmured as she climbed down
from her tree and began working her way towards inc. It was
no effort for her at all.
We soon fell into conversation. She tipped up my hammock so we soon fell into conversation. Although the cold
had brought a rosy glow to my
cheeks, she soon discovered that
as an apple I wa.s rotten to the
core. I added that the frost had
probably killed her off as a pear;
anyway, so why didn't we just
consider the assignment over'.'
Well, that's pretty well the
story except that one thing led
to another and before long we
were studying grafting. Hope
Dean MacFee doesn't overlook
this fascinating aspect, some-'
thing very human about it.
Estonia Found
Editor, The Ubyssey:     ,
In this day and age, when it
is necessary to know at least a
little about the countries of the
world, it gave me quite a surprise to learn that there is a
student? at UBC who does not
know where Estonia is. If the
chap who asked, "By the way,
where is Estonia, anyway?"
will consult any reputable map
of Europe, I am quite sure that
he will find it north of Latvia
and on the east coast of the
Baltic Sea.
I think also that when this
chap, who is "a non-Estonian
student," has had his own
home-country overrun by the
Russians, or some other foreign
power, he will have a different
opinion. I believe that he
would at least be a little indignant that his country was
not represented at an International House Dance, and that
the flags of the oppressing
country were represented in
full. I also doubt that this
critical student is a member of
the International House Club
on the Campus, and, therefore,
has no right whatsoever to
have made the remarks he did.
R. E. LEECH,
non-Estonian Student.

Crude Boors
Editor, The Ubyssey:
"Enough! Enough! Let's hear
no more talk about engineers
being beasts, crude boors and
lecherous degenerates!
"Sex is a many splendoured
thing! After the Kinsey reports, sex is here to stay!" Optimistic artsman Les 13. Eon
quips. Unfortunately, perverted engineering types and fundamentalist theologians have
placed a connotation of sin on
sex in our society. As a result
frigidity and prostitution, celibacy and homosexuality, as
well as  more subtle social  ill
nesses, are widespread in North,
America.

flights to Stockholm this summer?

Pen Pal
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I address myself to you as I
would like to correspond a^Doy
and girl in your University.
I hope you will be able to
aquire two pen-friends and I
wish a apologize if this puts
you to any inconvenience.
I had better introduce myself properly. As you can see
above I am called Isabel and
reside in Melbourne, Australia.
I am 16 years old, 5' 6" tall,
brown hair and grey eyes. I
was born in Italy, and when I
was six, at the end of the war,
we went to Egypt and lived in
Alexandria. On November 6,
1955 we arrived in Melbourne.
I have a variety of interests,
like dancing, modern and old;
music, light classics, a little of
rock 'n roll and I love the Hit
Parade. Read a lot. Preferably
Mysteries and Murder stories;
a few novels; also like Shakespeare poetry. I like films, musicals especially. Lately I saw
the two hits of the season,
'High Society and 'The King
and I'. Interested in Human
Science, History and Geography, and speak four languages,
besides the English; namely —
French, German, Italian and
Arabic.
Australia being a new country it has not yet properly developed its social activities.
The worst thing about Melbourne i.s the changeable wea-
ihor. Two days ago the temperature wa.s 1();3 degrees, yesterday it went down to 65 cleg.
Terrible.
Hoping someone will write.
