A new design was used, 5ft of 1.5" diameter scaffolding bar with a lead bulb of 2 litre beaker dimensions cast on to the end of it.
He was inaugurated and re-named at the UGM on the following Tuesday having been painted black, with purple and white stripes along the stem. At this time in the RCS Broadsheet, our fortnightly newspaper, THETA MK III got his own cartoon strip drawn by Tony Jones. Cartoon THETA appeared first in Volume 6 Issue 5, on the 29th November 1973, and appeared fairly regularly until mid-1976.
During this time, THETA had a change of face and this was due to the fact that at the Maths Freshers' Dinner in October 1974 he was removed again by Guilds.
Following a Treasure Hunt we regained our violated mascot and set about the construction of the next version.
