THURSDAY, JAN. 4, 1940
VOL. L. No. 71
Smoking in University Buildings:
Attention is called to the general rule
that smoking is prohibited in Univer-
sity buildings except in private of-
fices and assigned smoking rooms
where precautions can be taken and
control exercised. This is neither a
mere arbitrary regulation nor an at-
tempt to meddle with anyone's per-
sonal habits. It is established and
enforced solely with the purpose of
preventing fires. In the last seven
years, 30 of the total of 80 fires re-
ported, or 37 per cent, were caused by
cigarettes or lighted matches. To be
effective, the rule must necessarily
apply to bringing lighted tobacco in-

o or through University buildings and
o the lighting of cigars, cigarettes,
and pipes within buildings-nclud-
ng such lighting just previous to go-
ing outdoors. Within the last few
years a serious fire was started at the
[exit from the Pharmacology building
by the throwing of a still lighted
'match into refuse waiting removal at
[the doorway. If the rule is to be en-
forced at all, its enforcement must
begin at the building entrance. Fur-
ther, it is impossible that the- rule
should be enforced with one class of
persons if another class of persons
disregards it. It is a disagreeable
and thankless .task to "enforce" al-
most any rule. This rule against the
use of tobacco within buildings is per-
haps the most thankless and difficult
of all, unless it has the willing sup-
port of everyone concerned. An ap-
