esoteric barristers who are noted for
their youthfulncss, flippancy, and exuberance, would whistle at pulchri-tudinoyoung ladies meandering
past their haven, and pitch pennies
on the steps of their building.



But, alas and a pity, we hate to report that a transformation has occurred in the halls of that edifice indeed
it is a change that is above every
change. We shed tears at the thought.
For our barristers are now dignified
and dead serious, as befitting to the

Politics Clash
To The Editor:
UK.SC politics is back in swing for
another year and once again we have
a good opportunity to see human
beings in action.
Now that SC has settled, down to
a reasonable state of normalcy, it
might be time to see where things
stand now and what might happen in

the future.
Taylor Jones has finally, been installed as president of SC. His fight
to avoid another election last spring
might have been the reason he went
oa pro and is now unable to assume
the powers of the SC presidency .x
This all brings up another question. What position will Jones hold
in SC until he regains his eligibility?
And what real power will Phil Austin
exercise as temporary chairman of the
It would seem that Jones would
have appointed someone to take his
place who would carry out some kind
of Jones program. In the case of
Austin, however, Jones may have another reason.
Way last spring the name of Phil
Austin was mentioned as a possible
CP nominee for president in 1960.
What better way would there be to
groom a potential candidate than to
set him up as a "temporary president?"
Oddly, Jones and Austin, though
in the same party, are quite different
in their political thinking. While Jones
was fighting the NSA issue last spring,
Austin was not active in SC, but he
was very much in favor, of NSA.
If Austin should choose to propose
his own programs as temporary president, his ideas would probably be
more in line with the old Pete
ideas than with the man who
appointed him to the top post.
Although Jones officially has no
power in SC now, this is only an
official matter and nothing more. He
maintains control of CP party machinery and probably has enough
influence in the assembly to muster
a fair amount of support.
It is obvious that Taylor will not
sit back for a semester and not make
'action on some
some effort to get-Squestions.
This brings up another question.
Wliat happens if two programs developone supported by Austin, the
Perl-man-- SP

especially if Austin starts thinking
about NSA again.
This also brings up the issue of
where the SP will fit in all this. If the
party's choice was left between Austin
or Jones porgrams, they would probably back Austin.
The SP future is a bit bleak for
regaining control in the next assembly
since four of the eight seats in the
coming election are held by them.
The CP holds three and one, the
College of Law seat, is held by Bob
Manchester (SP), a consistent Jones
The chances of an SP program in
the assembly are slight, but the party
will have a great deal of influence if
there is a choice between Austin and
Jones ideas.
Potentially, the political differences
between Jones and Austin set the
stage for a battle that could be much
bigger than any election contest.

To The Editor:
Noting with more than passing interest the new .symbol of the esprit de
corps in the Law Department," we
took it upon ourselves as a
committee to see if we could
not emulate our colleagues in the
matter of wearing the proper attire so
that all the world will know, what our
major it.
Being physics majors presented the
little problem. Waves of horror shook
us when we came across the idea of
succumbing to the popular misconception and stereotype of a scientist.
It was felt by all, that we too, could
not look backward in time and don
the garb of an ISth Century man of
science. Hence we have dopted what
we term the Forward Look, a phrase
which we think adequately describes
our costume. After much thought and
research, we have decided to adopt
the Buck Rodgers uniform No. 1856.
The colors will be fluorescent orange
with chartreuse trimming.. The pocket
blaster will be the neuronic whip No.
5, which we feel will be adequate to
practice fast draws on squirrels.
Instead of standing on the steps of
Pence Hall and whistling at girjs, we
have decided upon yell, "EMCa"
which we shall shout with glee at a
pretty young thing passes by, and we


shall nod at each other and mumble
obscenities in terms of the Schroedin-ge- r
