THIS BOOK IS RESPECTFULLY
One of the principle beneficiaries
in U BC's post-war building program is the
library. With the recent addition of
a whole wing, there is now stack
room for 600,000 volumes. When the
other wing is added there will be room for
1,000,000 volumes, giving UBC one of
the best up-to-date libraries on the
The North wing, completed in
1948, more than doubled space available
for readers, books and staff, and includes
the Ridington Reference Room.
In the older part of the building are
a general reading room, a Fine Arts
Room, the Howay-Reid collection of
Canadiana, a reserve book reading room,
a periodicals reading room, and
seminar rooms. I
I n the library basement is a museum
consisting of the Burnett Collection of
South Seas, the Raley collection of
Indian artifacts, the Buttimer collection
of Indian baskets, and the IVHchell Pierce
collection of Eskimo clothing
Photographs show a graduate doing
research work in the stacks, a showcase
of biological specimens, the Ridington

Erected in 1936 as a memorial to
Reginald Brock, the late Dean of Applied
Science, and Mrs. Brock, both of whom
perished in an air accident, Brock Hall
serves as a center for recreation
and student activities. '
The building centers around a huge
lounge, tastefully furnished with arm-
chairs, sofas and bridge-tables. During
the day recorded music is piped in by
the Radio Society, which is located in the
basement. For special occasions the
lounge may be converted into a dance
floor, a dining hall, or an auditorium
for visiting entertainers.
In the north-west basement is the
haven for "the illegitimate children of
the Publications Board". Here, future
journalists compile copy for the tri-
weekly student newspaper, The Ubyssey,
and UBC's year book, The Totem.
The Brock also houses menls and women's
cloak rooms, the Alumni Association,
Phrateres offices, a coffee shop and
dining room, Alma Mater Society offices,
a barber shop, the Radio Society and
the Mamooks, a sign painting organization.
Shown in the photographs are the
coffee shop, students playing bridge,
girls relaxing in the comfortable furniture,
and Peter Dykels barber shop.
The humanities are housed in a medium
sized, unobtrusive building behind
The building consists almost entirely
of faculty offices and lecture rooms, owing
to the fact that no special apparatus
is required for teaching the humanities.
The two-storey edifice centres around
Arts 100, a lecture room capable of
seating over 200 students. In addition
there are smaller lecture rooms and
Crowded conditions have forced the
humanities to expand into temporary
war-time huts, which are regarded as
both ugly and inefficient. Plans have
already been laid for a new, larger
Arts Building, which will be erected
under the post-war building program
as soon as funds are available.
During lunch hour the lecture rooms
serve as a meeting place for campus clubs,
and are often requisitioned for
Included under the heading of
"humanities,' are such subjects as
Anthropology, Economics, English, French
and other foreign languages, classical
languages, History, Mathematics,
Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology,
Slavonic Studies and Sociology.
Photographs show girls in a study room,
the notice board, which is used for club
announcements and posting of exam
schedules, and a crowded lecture
in Arts 100.
Research with radioactive material
obtained from the Canadian Atomic
Energy Project at Chalk River is being
carried on in the "hot labn of UBC's
This and similar projects are typical
of the fascinating but little-publicized
experimental work done at UBC.
The impressive pseudo-collegiate Gothic
Chemistry Building contains about
eighteen offices, 50 research labs, fifteen
undergraduate labs and four lecture
rooms, as well as the Chemical
Engineering labs, which come under the
Faculty of Applied Science. Half of the
top floor is at present used by the
Department of Bacteriology.
Completed in 1922 it is one of the few
"permanent" buildings on. the campus.
Up until 1948 it was used jointly by
Physics and Chemistry students.
The mass spectrometer, one of the
first of its kind in Western Canada, was
supplied- to the university by the
Defense Research Board for study of
the oxidation of hydrocarbons used
for rocket propellents.
Special work is being done on the
chemistry of wood and natural gums in
order to find new uses.
Photographs show scenes from the
Bacteriology Lab, the Chemistry Balance
Lab, and Chemistry 200.
Dotted over the acres of open land in
the south-eastern. sector of the campus
are numerous small agriculture buildings.
The spacious grounds afford students
the opportunity for studying such
subjects as Animal Husbandry, Poultry
Husbandry, Horticulture and Agricultural
Mechanics under working conditions.
A number of new buildings have risen
since the war. The agricultural
engineering building contains the latest
in farming machinery, which is supplied
free by well known manufacturers of
agricultural machinery. The agricultural
pavilion was designed for the displaying
of larger livestock, and contains
meat refrigeration units.
The "head housev is a central green
house for the distribution of pots, dirts,
composts and other supplies. The
poultry services building contains facilities
for incubation, hatching, and killing.
In addition to the university buildings
are a number of laboratories built by
the Dominion Government for
cooperational research with the
Department of Agriculture. These
include the Dominion Laboratory of Plant
Pathology, the Soil Survey Lab, the
Entomology Insectery, and the
Animal Pathology Lab.
Shown in the photographs are livestock

machinery in the agricultural engineering
building, the poultry services building,

voyage to Vancouver, the visitor i.s
first greeted by the towering Union
College, which looms well above the
Here fifty theologues study for the
ministry. After obtaining his B.A. the
potential minister must study for
three years before being ordained.
The president is Dr. W. S. Taylor, a
Ph.D. in Psychology from Toronto
University, and formerly principal of
the University of Indore in India. Dr.
Grant lectures in church history, and
Dr. Fawcett in the Old Testament.
Visiting lecturer for the year is
Moir Waters from Victoria.
Only 16 of the 45 residents are
theologues. The Residentls Association,
under president Bill Murison, takes care
of athletic, social and disciplinary
functions, and acts as a liason between
students and staff.
There is close cooperation with the
nearby Anglican College, where Union
students take many of their lectures.
Friendly rivalry is evidenced in
"feud gamesv with the Anglicans.
Photographs show 'slops',, the starting
point of many involved discussions, a
class in early church history, one of the
rooms, the recreation room, and the
chapel, with its ornate stained
glass window. -

Unique in its love of tradition and
adherence to old world customs is the
Anglican Theological College, where
regulations are very similar to those
of English colleges.
Academic gowns must be worn to all
formal occasions including meals and
chapels. Ties are compulsory and sweaters
are taboo. All residents are compelled
tot attend chapel every Sunday.
The purpose of the College, now under
the principalship of Dr. Kenneth Taylor,
is to train ministers for the Anglican
Church, and to foster a spiritual outlook
on life. Complete courses are offered
in the study of the testaments, church
history, and related subjects such
as pastoral theology.
The first step towards becoming an
ordained minister is the acquisition of
a B.A. degree. Next follows three years
of study in theology, after which time
the student is awarded a Licentiate
in Theology. The College is authorized
to give honorary D.D.'s to men of renown,
but students must -write synod exams
for B.D. or D.D. degrees.
Shown in the photographs are Bishop
Grower, of the diocese of Vancouver,
chatting with students in the corridors,
a bull session in one of the rooms,
residents relaxing in the common room,
meal time, and the library.
An inverted ceiling which focusses
spectator attention on the floor is one of
the advanced architectural features in
the recently opened Memorial
Built in honor of the men and women
of British Columbia who served in the
two world wars, the gymnasium was
financed by public subscription, a
Provincial Government grant, and a
special student levy.
Although it is already in use the
official opening will not be held until
next fall. Additional construction awaits
the raising of further funds.
When fully completed, the gymnasium
will contain a swimming pool, basketball
courts with backstops, 5,600 seats
including bleachers, 150 men's lockers, a
Memorial Foyer, six bowling alleys,
showers and an auxiliary gym for 0
boxing, wrestling and tumbling.
Other architectural features include the
projecting stairs which will be glassed in.
Throughout the building the emphasis
is on glass, which both reduces cost
and increases attractiveness.
Student contributions have been raised
by the Gym Fund Committee headed by
Bill Haggert. Considerable money was
raised this year by a system of pledging
whereby students agreed to contribute
a certain sum of money as soon as
they could afford it.
Photos show various stages of construction
including the completed floor.

foficy a4cfminiJ ization
When historians leaf back through the hectic
pages of 1950-51, it may well appear as a year in which
mankind stood at the crossroads. Cn the one hand,
the Utopia made visible by man's mastery of the
forces of nature invited hope and cheer: on the other,
the Hell thrown open by the A-bomb and the H-
bomb and the titantic struggle of two mighty world
powers invited gloom and gave limitless scope to the
ever-present school of pessimists.
The position of a university at such a time present-
ed many complexities. Its organization and manage-
ment required skill and ingenuity of the highest order.
The demands of technology required ever-more skilled
specialists, and the never-ending problems of society
required, as always, broad liberal education. And the
taxpayers pocket was far from bottomless.
VVith the continued decrease in enrolment, the
post-war peak showed signs of levelling off, and a new
problem: VVhat is "normalacy" and how shall it be
developed? added to the difficulties of our university.
But through it all, President MacKenzie and
Professor Geoffrey Andrew, his unflagging assistant
f"Geoff" to almost everybodyl, still found time to
wave a friendly greeting to students as they strode
briskly across the quad.
Between sessions with the Royal Commission on
the Arts and Sciences and stumping trips through the
hinterland, President MacKenzie guided the building
program, laid the groundwork for a new school of fine
arts, eased the new medical school through its birth-
pangs-and even wrote letters to the editor of the

curtailing university spending. Because of heavy building program
and expanded faculties, UBC found itself S700,000.00 in the hole,
with professors asking for a straight 51,000.00 raise. While
President MacKenzie beseeked governments for higher grants,
Professor Andrews had to curtail budgets.

T11e average age of the student executive was 23
years, the youngest since the end of the war and yet
they were faced with some of the most critical and
searching questions ever handed to a Council. The
readiustment to a normal enrolment, possible maior
changes in the make-up of Council itself, the re-arrang-
ing of student athletics and the raising of campus spirit
were all contentious issues that had to be handled.

Undoubtedly a great deal of the CCJlll1C1l,S success
was due to its ability to face problems squarely and to
the co-operation which existed among its members.
Many of the problems handled by the group went back
to events in previous years and the decision to handle
them now, no matter how unpleasant they were, will
probably only be appreciated fully in the future when
serious troubles are avoided. Such a down-to-earth
attitude was only made possible by the spirit of team
work which was always in evidence. No matter how
hot the wrangling during debates the majority decision
was always cheerfully accepted and hard feelings were

degree of skill and authority by carefully examining
each expenditure and making certain it was justified.
A new policy which he introduced, that of token
budgets for all campus organizations, brought them
closer to the AMS and made them feel that they were
getting the value from their fees.
Secretary Io-Anne Strutt graduated from a similar
position on the NFCUS committee to Student Council
and brought with her not only training for the posi-
tion but also a fine sense of humour which helped to
lighten some of the more serious moments. She
handled minutes, correspondence and other paper work
with a professional touch and still found time to act
as chief returning officer for the society elections in the
spring. lt was typical of her work that invariably
Council minutes were "approved as read".
Sole lawyer on this year's executive was Cy
McGuire, who had the iob of handling the oft-maligned
and seldom praised Undergraduate Societies Commit-
tee. As one of the senior members of Council,
McGuire's sage advice was useful both to his own com-
mittee and to the parent group. Accomplishments of
the USC included sponsoring the blood drive, co-
operation with the engineers on the March of Dimes
and a very successful investigation of campus eating

was caught up in the general shuffle of Council
members that took place early in the fall. As vice-
president of the Women's Undergraduate Society, she
fell heir to the presidency of that group when Nonie
Donaldson moved up to head the AMS. Faced with
the difficult position of taking over in mid-stream,
she effectively lead WUS in its sponsorship of such
events as High Iinx, tea dances, the all-girls' football
game and the fashion show.
One of the youngest members of Council, 20-year-
old Ivan Feltham, nevertheless handled the position
of Iunior Member with the poise and assurance of a
senior statesman. Homecoming, his chief responsibil-
ity, was undoubtedly "the best yet" and included such
new items as the colorful float parade and the present-
ing of the Great Trekker Award both of which will
undoubtedly become an integral part of future pro-
grams. Aside from this, he rendered valuable service
on the Brock Extension Committee, the Constitutional
Revision Committee and Council as a whole.
In certain Council positions, the less heard about
them, the more successful they are. Such was the
case of lim Midwinter in his capacity as Social Co-
ordinator, for he tied the innumerable loose ends
together so effectively and worked out the kinks with
such quiet deftness that the average student scarcely
realized what was going on. Although taking his
fourth year in a double honours course, Midwinter
nevertheless found time to be on hand constantly to
keep the complex campus social program in order.

Fearing crucifixion of clubs at the
expense of athletics, Pedersen decid-

UBC Times, a sheet opposing the
Plan, the attempt to rush it
through and the financial difficul-
The Plan was tabled, and objec-
tions to it eventually settled by an
amendment of Pedersen's calling
for a sliding scale grant to MAD,
taking into account a possible drop
in enrollment. This solution, Ped-
ersen claimed, was the best deal
possible for LSE clubs at the time.
Biggest bugbear facing the much-
criticized USC was Murray Martin-
dale's ineffectual Discipline Com-
mittee which, he claimed, "might
just as well not exist for all the
good it does."
Function of the Committee is to
spot infractions of discipline in the
Cat and the Brock. Technically
the offender must be brought be-
fore a court-martial and, if found
guilty, may be fined as much as
555.00 However, the prohibitive
cost of court-martials and the un-
willingness of students to bring ac-
tion against fellow students have
made it impossible for the Commit-
tee to enforce regulations. All they
are able to do is to advise students
on matters of conduct.
The Committee is obligated to
prevent drinking at AMS func-
tions, but at large functions such
as the Homecoming Ball, which
over 3,000 attended, no effective
measures were possible.
Other activities coming under Cy
McCuire's USC were the Blood
Drive, which last year netted 2,500
pints, the investigation of cafeteria
food prices with a resultant drop in
prices, the organization of inter-
faculty sports under Dick Penn,
and a survey on the student cost
of living carried out in cooperation

"The UBC Alumni Association-the permanent
organization of former students-is at an 'in-between'
stage," declared retiring president Iohn M. Buchanan
QBA '17J in his general report to the membership.
"It is comparatively young, only in the last few years
have our graduate classes been large," he continued,
"and the greater service to the University and its
students possible from organized effort of such a
larger group is only now beginning to become evident."
Mr. Buchanan, who in business life is president of
British Columbia Packers Ltd., pointed out that in its
second year of operation, the Alumni-UBC Develop-
ment Fund raised more than 515,000-an amount
greater than the first year's effort by iiS5,000. Almost
2,000 alumni donated to the 1950 program of volun-
tary, annual giving-compared with the 1,450 con-
tributors in the previous year. Contributors qualify
as Alumni Association members, "Chronicle" recipients,
and their donations are eligible for income tax deduc-
As a result of a special arrangement with the
University, 100W of each donation was turned over
to UBC for the purposes named. There were no deduc-
tions for expenses, either direct or indirect. The
major portion of the 1950 donations was divided
between furnishings for the new VVomen's Residences,
Alumni Scholarships for students, the President's Fund,
and the Sedgewick Memorial.
In turning over to the new president, Mr. Iames
A. Macdonald CBA 385, a law partner in the firm of
Robson 8: Macdonald, Mr. Buchanan mentioned that
he was encouraged "when recalling that 112 years ago

portancef Such judgment seemed bold and optimistic
in its time."
"I, personally, am just as bold and optimistic for
the future of our Alumni Association, and our annual
giving program, the Alumni-UBC Development Fund.
This optimism is based on my study of what other
universitieshave done and are continuing to do by the

Nearly 400 students received degrees at the 24th
annual congregation in the Armory on Qctober 26.
The degrees were presented by Acting Chancellor N.
A. M. MacKenzie.
The congregation address was given by Dr. George
Sherman Avery, who urged graduating students to
make the world a better place to live in.
"We must learn to appreciate life which is dit-
ferent from our own,',, he said.
Dr. Avery felt such an appreciation was essential
to an understanding of world problems and any at-
tempt to aid those problems.
He stressed the importance of the United Nations
and the contributions graduates could make to it.
"I am sure any peace and happiness in this world
will come through the UN," he said.
Dr. Avery stressed the importance of teaching Eur-
opean students decent living in order to counteract the
principles of hate and revolution which are being
taught in Russia today.
"Graduates should attempt to provide more fel-
lowships for more foreign students," he said.
Before the address honorary degrees of doctor of
science were awarded to Avery for his study of plant
hormones, and to Professor I. R. Dymond, head of the
department of Zoology at the University of Toronto
and past director of the Royal Ontario Museum. Both
degrees were presented by N. A. M. MacKenzie,
who acted for Chancellor Eric W. Hamber.

Models were drawn from university office work-

Best known model was last year's AMS secretary,

Disappointment of the show was that only one
bathing suit was modeled. Needless to say, however,
the one shown was an extremely fine sample.
Eaton's erected props for the show, which was held
on the last Monday of February.
Attendance was the best of any show held on the

On the evening of November 1-l, 1950, in the
Brock Lounge, 150 Phratereans and their escorts danc-
ed to the music of Ted Peters' Orchestra at their an-
nual fall formal. Girls, who a few hours previous to
this moment had been rushing around the upper halls
of the Brock in blue jeans and with paint-smeared
faces were now calm and at ease once more.
Another Phrateres Formal had come and was
going as smoothly as possible. The theme of Arctic
Capers had been carried through beautifully.
The tickets, in the form of igloos, were tiny re-
plicas of the huge white and silver igloo above the
orchestra. The smaller caricatures of ice-bergs,
huskies, kyaks, sleighs, and Fskimos carried the theme
completely through the Brock.
Coke parties were held by each of the Sub-Chapters
to give a lively start to the big evening. Here, again,

Delight of the female section of UBC was the an-
nual Co-ed Dance staged by the Women's Undergradu-

in its true colors, when it arrived under the title of a
"Sadie Hawkin's Day Dance." Highlight of the even-
ing was the choosing of the 1950-51 Totem Queen.
Contestants included brunette Susan lames, a third
year Arts Student, blonde and petite Barbara Cummings,
first year Arts student, red-heads Marilyn Benson, and
Ann Cooper. Miss Benson in first year Arts and Miss
Cooper in first year, and Mary Taylor, brown-haired
second year Arts student.

At the fall general meeting in '46
students raised their Alma Mater
fee from 1513 to 11215 and allocated
five dollars to the gym campaign.
A general student drive was or-
ganized with fund-raising antics on
the campus, parades through the
streets of Vancouver, and appeals
over radio programs to bring the
student drive to liS175,000 by the end
of 1947. Students authorized Stu-
dent Council to borrow 3150.000
whenever necessary to start con-

their AMS fees to the campaign.

soared to such an extent that the

be a fairly well-behaved group, since they received
lyiuquets and congratulations from the management of
the Commodore Cabaret following the hall. Nick
Kogos, cabaret manager, sent EUS representatives a
congratulatory letter on their conduct at the Commo-
dore. The letter said in part: "lt is the feeling of the
entire staff here that this dance was the finest En-
gineers' dance held here to date, and was one of the
most orderly and best organized functions ever con-
ducted by a university group."
"VVe sincerely hope that we will have the pleasure
of doing business with the Engineers again," the letter
Engineers dispensed with the annual queen con-
test at this year's ball, claiming that the judging and
'kwinner of the display competition was the Dawson Club, which
showed a model oil well operation. Below, couple enioy oscul-
ator which was designed by Arts Student AI Goldsmith four years
ago. Has been used at every ball since then, but Engineers have
long since forgotten that kissometer is property of Goldsmith.
A large crowd gathered around machine, which was by far the
most popular at 'Godiva's Ball'.
awarding took too much time out of an already jam-
med evening. The other big item on the program is
the judging of the displays produced by all engineer-
ing sections. Ball patrons spent much of their time
admiring and trying out these ingenious displays.
Most popular of all displays was the Electrical En-
gineers' "Kissometer", another annual attraction of the
ball. Engineers claim it registers intensity, heat, pres-
sure, and then transforms them into a numerical rating
on the needle graph in the machine. Absolutely tops
in all ways rates ten on the scale, and large red neon
letters spelling "STOP" light up on top of the machine
when ten is reached. The Kissometer was designed
four years ago by Artsman Al Goldsmith, president of
IFC this year. Few patrons of the ball missed a visit
to this popular machine.
Wititier of the display contest was the Dawson
Club, composed of geological, mining, and metallurgy
engineering students. Their display was a model of
an oil-well drilling rig, with cross section of layers of
earth through which the drill passes. Prize for the
exhibit was a twenty-sixth of the traditional Engineers'
beverage. Second prize went to 3rd and 4th year
Civil Engineers for their display of a model of the
cience NJ? JJUJVI
proposed Guthega Dam at Alex-
andria in New South Wales, Aus-
tralia, and the 4th year Mechanicals
rated third with their scale model
of a Theoretical Gas Turbine.
Other exhibits included model log-
ging-mills, sets of chemical distilling
apparatus, and saw-mill sets.
Guest of the Redshirts at their
ball was Ubyssey Editor-in-Chief
Ray Frost, who shortly before had
thwarted EUS plans to produce an
issue of the Ubyssey in red ink, and
with traditional engineering jour-
nalism. Results of the fracas saw

Editor Hugh Cameron, while
swarms of Redshirts stormed the
Publications Board and prevented
the regular staff from producing
their issue. The redshirts also gave

Under the leadership of an active
executive, the Players' Club could
count the year of 1950-51 as one of
its most successful in the thirty-six
years that it has existed as one of
the maior clubs on the campus. The
executive was headed by President
Philip Keatley, with Vice-President
Elizabeth Grant, Secretary Anna
VVooton, Treasurer Norman Young,
and Committee Members Doreen
Qdling and Shelia Cameron. Fred
Lipsett returned to the campus to
take the iob of Stage Manager after
an absence of four years. Lipsett
had previously managed the stage
for the Club from 1942 to 1944,
after which he became president
of L.S.E. Under his silken whip-
hand, the stage crew changed sets
in two minutes, forty-three seconds
by his stop watech, and built an
entire new box set for the Spring
Play in five days.
The social life of the Club was
under the direction of Angela Wood
as Social Convener, and consisted of
the regular two production parties,
with a Fall Formal held at Stanley
Park Pavillion, a New Members'
party at the home of Liz Grant,
and the annual Valentine's Marque-
rade held at the home of Val
In the fall, as its annual private
performance the Club presented
three one-act plays. The plays
chosen in 1950 were of three widely
diverse styles of theatre fare, and
the student actors found each had
its own problems and its own re-
wards. The first play of the pro-
gram was one of Tennessee Wil-
liam's eary efforts in drama, "The
Lady of Larkspur Lotion," a study
of three neurotic and dream-haunted
individuals in the back-alleys of
New Orleans life. The production
was under the direction of Mrs. F.

Concentrating on the training of students
for both commercial and dramatic radio, people s
at RadSoc learned the basic fundamentals of
announcing, writing, producing and engineer-
ing. In conjunction with this training, the
Radio Society and The British Columbia Association
of Broadcasters-through station CKWX-operated a
school for Commercial Radio.
This 22 week course was an outstanding success,
and UBC can be proud that they are the only Univer-
sity in Canada which offers its students a complete
training in Radio, as an extra-curricular activity. Along
wgth this school, the Canadian Broadcasting Corpora-
tion and URS trained members in dramatic radio.
Every Wednesday night the budding young actors
learned the ins and outs of radio drama at the CBR
studio in Vancouver.
Once again the fortunes of the Radio Society were
guided by Don Cunliffe, who served his second con-
secutive year as President. The Executive was made
up of Ron Altree, program director, Merv Chertkow,

Subscribing to the "all work and no play" thesis,
members indulged in a round of social functions-
skating, bowling and dancing-which culminated in
true bacchanal spirit at the annual Spring banquet and

The U.B.C. Film Society sets an admirable example
in making a real and manifold contribution to university
life while simultaneously affording its members a
chance to gain valuable experience in an amazing variety
of activities within the sphere of the motion-picture.
All proceeds of the show went to pay off a S2000

buy the projector in the Auditorium. Only exception
to the rule was when 'Oliver Twist' was presented and
the money was turned over to the gym drive.

A long standing ambition of the Musical Society
was achieved this year with the presentation of both
a fall and spring production. Henry Purcell's "Dido
and Aeneas", directed by Mr. Iohn Reeves, took place
shortly after the beginning of the University term.
The annual spring production this year was Gilbert
and Sullivan's 'iThe Gondoliersn, directed by Mr. C. H.
The success of 'cDido and Aeneas" was due in a
maior part to the ability of the director, Iohn Reeves.
Mr. Reeves, who is on exchange from Cambridge Uni-
versity, has had very wide experience in this field of
The sets, costumes and lighting designed by Mr.
Cliff Robinson added much to the professional tone
of the show. 4
The cast was headed by Megan Lloyd-Iones as
Dido, Kelvin Service as Aeneas, Rita Loiselle as
Belinda, and Henry Naylor as the Sorcerer.
Others in the cast included Marlene Buckle, Bar-
bara Gwvther, Dorothy McPhillips, Sheila Rayner,
Donna Taylor, lack Downs, Earl Iorgensen, Bob
Faulkner, Iohn Yeomans and Fred Walker.
As its main production of the year the Musical

speaks for his ability and shows his importance
to the club.
The success of another very important
aspect of the show was due to the untiring
work of the dramatic director, Mr. E. V.
His unceasing efforts managed to bring
out the witty and amusing dialogue in the true Gilbert
and Sullivan fashion.
Mr. Young is well known for his work in 'LTheatre
Under the Starsi' and on CBC.
Mrs. May Taylor first came to the Club as choreo-
grapher for "Dido and Aeneas". Her fine work in that
show, followed by an equal success in "The Gondoliers"
is indicative of her talent as a dance director.
The story of the "Gondoliers" revolved around the
lives and adventures of two Gondoliers, Marco and
Guiseppe, and their wives Gianetta and Tessa. In
true Gilbert and Sullivan fashion, the story weaves
between the party of the Gondoliers and the party of
the Duke of Plaza-Toro, a penniless nobleman, whose
daughter Casilda was married when a baby to the
infant son of the King of Barataria. There was some
doubt as to the identity of the young king but his
foster-mother, Inez, is found.
After much persuasion bv the Grand Inquisitor,
she revealed that the real king is Luiz, the Duke's
own drummer-boy, with whom Casilda was already in
love, and not one of the two Gondoliers as it had been
The story ended happily for all concerned, and
even Marco and Guiseppe felt a secret relief that neither
of them turned out to be the king.
Principal female parts were taken
by Milla Andrew as Tessa, Rita
Loiselle as Gianetta, B arb ara
Gwyther as Casilda, and Dorothy
McPhillips as the Duchess.
Milla Andrew, Rita Loiselle and
Dorothy McPhillips have all sung
principal roles with the Musical So-
ciety in previous years. Barbara

in "Tom Iones", made a very suc-

Kelikis, a Winnipeg boy, felt right
at home in his part, as he played the
role while attending the University
of Manitoba. Both Yeomans and
Walker are new to principal roles
with the society, although both were
in the chorus of "Tom Iones".

250 students from all over the world

part in this little world organiza-

and speakers, besides innumerable

the program, the chance to ex-

"Although initially a social club, the UBC Dance
Club has also become somewhat of a cultural society
and a service organization, as is evidenced by the ac-
tivities of the past year."
These fine-sounding words must explain in part
why the UBC Dance Club has grown to the large mem-
bership of some 400 students who attended their regu-
lar noon-hour sessions this last year.
Of course, they didn't all come at once, because
there was a choice of days: Monday, Wednesday or
Thursday at noon for ballroom dancing, and Friday
at noon for square dancing. There were extra classes
on Friday evenings, too, but they were for the student
instructors. It was on those Friday nights that the in-
structors were taught the steps of the waltz, the rhumba,
the tango, the samba, the foxtrot, and the quick step,
which were passed along to the members at the regu-
lar sessions. Patient and hard-working teachers were
Miss Kaye Visini and Mr. Grant Vincent of the Vin-
cent-Visini Dance Studio. These dance sessions are
the club's most important activity.

ln the year 1045, the year that saw the turning
point in VVorld VVar Two, the University Naval Train-
ing Divisions were formed at the principal universities
across Canada. The purpose of these "tenders" to
existing navy reserve divisions was and is to train
students as officers for the reserve and permanent
The UNTD programme has always been of three
or four year duration. For this reason few UBC
graduates who were in the program when it started
ever saw active wartime service.
In a country such as Canada, where the national
economy won't normally permit upkeep of "service"
universities or of large permanent forces, existing
facilitiesgand trained reserves must be used instead.
Because professional training facilities exist in Canadian
universities, and because male undergraduates volun-
teer for naval training, the UNTD programme is
proving effective in supplying reserve forces. More
recently, the Department of National Defence author-
ized suhsidization of any reserve service man in his
final academic year, if he applies and is selected for
the permanent force. More than ever before, Canada's
immediate internal and external defences depend on
the availability of a trained reserve. For example, in-
cluded in men manning the Canadian destroyers in the
Korean war were several reserve personnel. Une of the
reserve officers available for such duties was Sub-Lieut.

The R.C.A.F. Reserve University
Flight fU.B.C.j was established in
October, 1948, simultaneously with
similar units at other leading uni-
versities in Canada. It assumed im-
mediately the function of the Uni-
versity Air Training Plan, that of
training a limited number of uni
versity students as aircrew. In addi-
tion it became responsible for train-
ing students as technical and
administrative officers for the Re-
serve or Regular components of the
Royal Canadian Air Force.
Students in any faculty are elig-
ible for membership in the Flight
but, because of the increasing tech-
nological knowledge demanded of
officers, engineers are given prefer-
ence. Applicants are expected to
maintain a high academic average,
for intelligence and application are
two of the qualities requisite to
leadership. As the training pro-
gram encompasses a period of three
years, only students in the first year
of the four-year course or in the
first or second year of a five-year
course can qualify for training.
Training consists of two parts,
winter training and summer train-
ing. During the university session
the Flight Cadets attend lectures on
military history, military geography,
international affairs, trends in air
weapons and defence, aviation me-
dicine, and other related subjects.
The lecturers who conduct discus-
sions after these lectures are mem-
bers of the faculty or are high rank-
ing officers of the R.C.A.F. To
reinforce the lectures, visual aids,
particularly documentary films, are
used extensively. So that the lec-
ture program will not interfere with
academic studies, Winter training
ceases at least three weeks before the
sessional examinations begin.
After the university session closes,
Flight Cadets report for summer
training to various units of the
R.C.A.F. Newly selected aircrew
travel to the Institute of Aviation
Medicine, where they are subjected
to rigid and exhaustive tests to de-
termine their aircrew trade. They
then proceed to other units to train
as pilot, navigator or radio officer.
Partly trained aircrew go directly
from university to flying schools to
continue their flying training.
All first year Flight Cadets, with the exception of air
crew, spend the first eight weeks of the summer at
Officers Indoctrination School, where they become pro-
ficient in drill, study public speaking, and learn the
organization of the R.C.A.F. and the Department of
National Defence. In the remaining summer months
the Cadets are given instruction in the branch of the
service for which they are most suited and in which
they are most interested. Second and third year Flight
Cadets proceed directly to units of the Regular Force,
where they continue their study of the trade in which
their interest lies.
Wherever the Cadets spend their summer training
period well organized programs of compulsory and
voluntary sports provide welcome relief from the
tedium of study. Inter-university games are the source
of friendly rivalry and good sportsmanship. But sports
provide more than recreation. On the playing fields
some of the latent leadership of the Flight Cadets
asserts itself and engenders confidence in them.
Flight Cadets wear the rank badge of a Pilot Officer
and, though they have not been granted the King's
Commission, enjoy the status of commissioned officers.
During the summer months they are paid 15162.00
monthly and receive clothing, rations and quarters, and
medical services free. Many of the Cadets save 513500.00
or more of their summer pay. Special allowances are
paid to aircrew and to Cadets stationed in Northern

The University of liritish Columbia Contingent

National Defence in conjunction with university
authorities at the maior campuses across Canada.
These units were formed in order to permit male
university students to qualify as officers and receive
appointments to the Canadian Army in either the
active Cregularj or reserve forces. The COTC train-
ing plan was re-organized in 1946 following con-
sultations between representatives of the Department of
National Defence and officers of the National Associa-
tion of Canadian Universities.
Appointment into the COTC was open to all
students at Canadian universities having authorized
contingents, who are Canadian citizens or British
subjects over the age of 17 capable of meeting certain
and physical and educational requirements. Enrol-
ment was by selection after candidates had appeared

The training programme was divided into two
phases: a theoretical phase which included lectures,
discussions and demonstrations conducted at the uni-
versity during the academic year and a practical phase
held at an active force school for sixteen weeks during
the summer. Successful completion of two theoretical
and two practical phases qualifies a member of the
COTC as a lieutenant in the Canadian Army Reserve
Force while qualification as a captain, reserve force,
or lieutenant, active force, may be obtained by attend-
ing and passing three theoretical and practical phases.

Participation in the COTC programme qualified

tics which are essential to success in any field of en-
deavour. Practical leadership training and the
knowledge of how to manage men were only two of
the important subjects being taught that are of inestim-

More than any other campus or-
ganization, the Publications Board
felt the end of an era in 1950-51.
For one thing, enrollment dropped,
which meant there were fewer per-
sons to make news. In the second
place, many veterans who had
provided impetus with their matur-
ity in the field of journalism at
UBC, had graduated.
The first big blow came at the
beginning of the year when Vic
Hay, named to head the Pub the
year previous, failed to return.
Lacking some credits necessary for
him to begin his course in graduate
studies, the department of veterans
administration refused to pay his
fees and grant and he was forced
to withdraw. He announced his
resignation at an emergency meet-
ing of the editorial board and
editors lost no time in electing
former sports editor Ray Frost to
the Pub's highest post.
Despite the early drawbacks and
the necessary re-adjustments, editors
and reporters continued to give
students three papers a week which
gained them honorable mention for
news writing and editorials at the
annual conference of the Canadian
University Press in Ottawa, attend-
ed by Editor Frost during the
Christmas holidays. In addition to
this, the Pub had the usual charges
of high handedness and inconsidera-
tion of the general student body
hurled at it. Despite these the pub.
managed to weather the storm with
a closely knit editorial board.
When he took over his post,
Editor Frost was virtually an un-
known quantity to students. Frost
i'Raymond Herbert Frost lead the Publica-
tions Board through a hectic year success-
fully, despite a shortage of staff and
money. Frost started his iournalistic
career at Britannia High in Vancouver four
years ago. During his first year on the
campus he was Associate Sports Editor of
the Ubyssey, the following year Sports
Editor and was finally elected Editor-in-
Chief after the resignation of Vic Hay last
inflicted himself on the Pub during
the austerity years of 1948-49 when
he quickly became a sports editor.
Last year, short of staff, Frost work-
ed almost every sports page himself
and concentrated on news instead of
columns and features.
Early in the new year, another
re-adjustment was necessary. Sports
Editor Ron Pinchin, who had put
out many a sports page alone, was
forced to withdraw from the Pub.
A blank sports page brought a bevy
of new editors early in the year and
things looked fine. But on the city
desk, senior editor Danny Goldsmith
was faced with the same prospect.
A former Victoria College writer,
Iohn Napier-Hemy, stepped in to

There were a dozen or so people
who were as integral a part of the
staff of the Publications Board as
were the senior editors and desk-
men who performed the mechanical
functions of putting out the news-
paper. One man, whose name never
appeared in the masthead, but who
probably met more people during
the year than all the rest of the
staff, was Bill Poole, Pub secretary
and manager of the lost and found
department, one service of the Pub-
Monday through Friday from 12
p.m. to 3 p.m. Bill wrapped
Ubyssey's for mailing, compiled and
typed classified advertising and
looked after hundreds of students
who had lost everything from books
to overcoats to umbrellas. Bill also
found time to cram in studies for
his third year law course. Quiet
and soft-spoken, Bill managed the
department in an efficient manner.
A number of other people appear-
ed in the masthead but never went
to the print shop with the senior
editors to put the paper to bed.
Among them were Les Armour and
Hal Tennant, who pounded out
editorials and columns with unceas-
ing regularity. Armour, a philo-
sophy major. alternately wrote ed-
itarials and then hurried downtown
each evening to work the night side
shift on the Vancouver Daily
Province. How he managed this
and kept up his high scholastic
average remains a mystery to most
Armour's cohort in editorial writ-
ing was Hal Tennant, who had
convulsed the campus for years with
his column entitled "Once Over

Les Armour lrightl. Their writings, the

hit the doldrums this year, but not
because of a lack of material. Les
Armour compiled the material only
to find that there were no funds to
subsidize the book forthcoming
from student council. In addition
to this a dearth of advertising would
have made the magazine a financial
flop. So Armour had to shelve
plans for the magazine and turn
over a legacy of short stories, articles
and poetry to the editor for the com-
The Pub resorted to a simple
method of turning out a student
directory so that scholars would
know Where their friends were liv-
ing this year. Instead of having the
names retyped into lists from regis-
tration cards the editors sent the
cards direct to the printers and cut
more than a month off production
time. When galley proofs were
ready, a covey of readers, headed
by editor Hugh Cameron, tore into
the proofs for a week and the book
appeared well ahead of those of past

Behind the scenes of the pub were the photographers. This year's staff
was the best that had been seen for many years on the Publications Board.
All were considered professionals by Editor-in-Chief Frost and one had
already passed examinations for the Professional Photographers' Association
of North America.
Headquarters for photogs was hut A7. behind Brock Hall. Nothing
changed or was added during the year to the dark room equipment be-
cause of a curtailed budget handed down by Treasurer Iohn Mackinnon.
Only reason photographer budget landed in the black at end of school
term was because of strobes owned by the laffery brothers and Bob Steiner.
Starting in August of '50, the photogs started shooting pixs for Totem.
Steiner finished colored pictures of buildings while Hatcher worked to
put dark room in shape for the return of passing crew in early September.
As year progressed pixies darted from one place to another gathering
shots for Ubyssey and Totem. Largest job was shooting Greeks in one

Starting in early summer Editor Hugh Cameron
started planning Totem '51.
It was decided by the editorial board that the book
was to be the largest since the student austerity program
started three years ago.
Besides being larger it was to fulfill a dual pur-
pose. First it was to portray the activities of all campus
life which in the years to follow would act as a re-
membrance of college life.
Secondly, in the past five years a tremendous effort
had been directed to pointing out the cultural and
practical achievements of the university's scholastic
work to the citizens of British Columbia. This pro-
gram was due largely to the fact that the extensive ex-
pansion of UBC, financed through the people by their
elected representatives in the B.C. House.
Therefore because many people who have put
money into the university see the Totem, through
friends that attend UBC, it was felt that the scholastic
accomplishments should be regarded in a more favour-
able light in the Totem.
This formed the backbone of the policy of this
Style of the book came in for a revamping during
Cameron's reign as editor. It was to switch from the
Life Magazine style which had been used for the past
three years to a more modernistic type.
Every Friday during the summer when Cameron
landed in Vancouver for his day off from the CPR
boats, he headed towards Ward 8: Phillips, printers of
the Totem for the past 14 years. There Vice-President
of the company, Charlie Phillips, worked over ideas
which could be incorporated into the mammoth book.
When estimates from the printers, engravers, and
cover makers were compiled, total cost of the year-
book soared to an all time high of 317,000
Iohn Mackinnon, Treasurer, lost many of his grey
hair worrying whether the book
was going to make money as its

fered from a shortage of staff.

merican ooibauera oat Every game
A no-win, all loss record chalked up by the Am-
erican Football squad this season would seem to belie
the statement that they really got something done for
a change. The greatest contribution made by the
undermanned football team was not from their ability
on the field of combat, but rather from the lack of it.
Shortage of players, the unimpressive games before
smaller crowds than usual, the obvious lack of enthusi-
asm of the players who seemed to have adopted a
"what,s the use" attitude because they were getting
nowhere bashing their bodies against finer and heavier
American talent with better equipment and better train-
ing, all contributed to inspire the UBC student body
to raise their voices in protest and demand a new
But demands for a change in the athletic picture
did not help the ailing grid machine during the re-
mainder of the football schedule. Working with only
a handful of players, with his few reserves on the
bench more to psychologically boost the teammates on
the field than to sub in for them, Head Coach Orville
Burke saw another bad season achingly slide by.
Nucleus of the team was composed of about fifteen
men who carried most of the weight during the entire
season. In the season opener, which took place even
before theopening of the university, Burke and assist-
ant coach Ieliy Anderson fielded few more than eleven
men to hold off St. Martinis best, including a Vancou-
ver track star who was down south on an athletic
St. Martin's handed the home town team their
first of seven defeats by rolling to their Z7-6 win in the
latter stages of the game when the overworked Bird-
men began to tire. A theoretical win for the Thunder-
birds came at the end of the season when Whitworth
College Pirates failed to appear at the Point Grey
campus because they had been plagued by injuries.
With nothing but defeats in between the first and
last scheduled games at UBC, the crowds began to
dwindle, until the Homecoming Game came along on
November 4. Playing to a near-capacity crowd despite
had weather which haunted Vancouver almost until
game time, Thunherbirds changed style completely
from their previous four games and played it wide
open. Opposition for the feature game of the season
was provided by Northern Idaho College Loggers, a
team that UBC had beaten the year before. Throwing
all caution to winds, Thunderbird gridmen managed
to score three touch-
downs against the visi-
tors, but in the process
they had five scored
against them. Final score
ended at 33-18 but every-
one went away happy
for the first time in the
season. Being outscored by at least
three touchdowns became the rule
rather than the exception. Linfield
held UBC to no score while mark-
ing up forty-six points on the score-
board, and Western Washington
ended their game with a forty-seven
to seven score.
At least UBC had a new score-
board this year on which to record
the major tallies of the visiting
teams. A gift of the 1949 graduating
class, it was unyielded and used for
the first time at the Homecoming
The football season ended in
sad state, but with the instigation of
a new athletic plan, things began to
look up. At least next year, the
campus thought, things would be
better. Then came the unwelcome
news that head coach Burke would
not be back to coach the team in the
1951-52 term. He had been working
under a two-year contract which had
expired, and the press of his work
did not allow him the time neces-
sary to coach a team.

Although the University Rugby
Union is a mere youngster compar-
ed to the 60-year-old Vancouver
Rugby Union, the University of
British Columbia has an outstand-
ing record established by Thunder-
bird Rugby fifteens since the Uni-
versity was founded in 1915.
Long before our present campus
on Point Grey came into existence,
rugger, the intimate term for the
sport of rugby, was synonymous
with the old Fairview institution.
Despite the introduction of Cana-
dian, and more recently, American
football, the traditional English
sport is still- one of the major sports
on the UBC campus.
ln the ensuing years, rivalry with
both Stanford and the University of
California provided a real "golden
era" for the Twickenham sport.
The result was particularly appar-
ent at UBC, for although the
Thunderbirds did not regain the
Wcairlcl Trophy until 1926, they cor-
nered the McKechnie Cup three
years in a row in 1922, 1923, and
192-l. The spring of 1926 saw the
Mcliechnie Cup return to UBC but
1926-27 was even greater for Var-
On Boxing Day, 1926, the "World
Cup", emblematic of Pacific Coast
Inter-Collegiate Rugby supremacy,
was regained by UBC as the Thun-
derbirds stopped Stanford 6-3. On
February 2nd, 1927, the same team
held the world famous New Zea-
land Maoris to a 12-3 score, exactly
the same score by which the Maoris
had defeated the French Interna-
tional previously that season. UBC
finished off this highly successful
year by taking the McKechnie Cup

a fine record. In the past 35 years
they have won the Miller Cup 14
times, the McKechnie Cup 12 times,
six times since the war, and the Tis-
dall Trophy 13 times.
In Miller Cup play this year the
UBC rugby squad started off with
a 5-all tie against the strong Vindex
team, composed mainly of UBC
grads. In subsequent Miller Cup
games, they won two against Ex-
Brittania and North Vancouver by
scores of 6-3 and 11-5, played a
scoreless tie against South Burnaby
and lost by identical scores of 3-0
to the strong Meralomas and Row-
ing Club Teams, both of which also
have many ex-UBC grads starring.
Adverse weather conditions this
spring resulted in the cancellation of
so many Miller Cup games that the
Thunderbirds have had to withdraw
from competition so as to complete

UBC Thunderbirds led McKech-
nie Cup play with three and one
loss, with two games remaining
against North Shore and Van-

games, losing any chance they had
to cop the cup.

organizations which suffered little
from the severe B.C. winter was
the Gym Club, which managed to
maintain membership and interest
throughout the long winter season.
This muscle-making club, devoted
to the training of students on vari-
ous pieces of apparatus and general
proficiency in muscular coordina-
tion, naturally enlisted many mem-
bers of the Physical Education Un-
dergraduate Society, but by the end
of the year, members of other fac-
ulties outnumbered the Phys Eds.

petition which the club sponsored
early in the spring, saw most of the

Four faculties were represented by
the club members in the meet: Arts,

The UBC Gym Club sponsored
the gymnastic competition in an at-
tempt to foster gymnastics at the
university in particular and
throughout the province in general.
By putting on half-time displays
at university sports events during
the course of the season, club mem-
bers were reaching the interests of
not only UBC students but of spec-
tators outside of the university who
were sitting in on the games.
Where the Gym Club members
really came in handy was in the

a score of 49-7, thanks to the Vancouver Y torpedoes.
All this, in spite of the efforts of Dianne Iohnson, Anne
Winter and Margaret-Ann Henninger, who sparked
the Thunderettes. The last named copped a bronze
medal for UBC at the Provincial Championships later
in the year.

Gault, who took a double degree of Arts and
Science and Bachelor of Science, was injured in an
accident in his third year.
Despite his iniuries he continued his studies but
was not allowed to participate in sports. Four months
after he graduated he died as a result of his injuries.
During his undergraduate days, Bobby Gault ex-
emplified true sportsmanship in the very sense of the
He was considerate and unselfish, with a desirable
balance of athletics and scholastics.
He was loyal to his team mates and his Alma
Mater. He had the courage and determination to give
his best, win, lose or draw.
Bob Moulds has shown all the qualities that are
required of the recipient of this award.
He was continually offered money to play for
Coast League soccer teams, yet he preferred to remain
loyal to his Alma Mater and play with the Varsity
Mould was the outstanding player on the soccer
team and induced his team mates to play fairly. He
was considerate of others and helped train newcomers
to the squad.
His eagerness and congenial attitude spread to the
whole team and gave them the determination to be
the best soccer team in the history of UBC.
Besides being a top sportsman, Bobby Moulds was
one of the best scholars in the Faculty of Applied
Science. In his third year he received first class marks.
He was also awarded the William MacKenzie Swan
Memorial Bursary, given to the best all round Engineer

The Pan-hellenic Association started the 1950-51
term with its biggest rushing season on record, with
142 girls pledged on October 12th.
i'President Dodie O'Brien ran Pan-Hell smoothly, was responsible
for carrying out inter sorority relation.
Pan Hell, with its two delegates from each of the
nine sororities on campus, plays a guiding role in
rushing, writing all the rules into its constitution, which
is revised every spring at Workshop, and seeing that
the rules are kept.
Pan-hellenic aim that' there be broad inter-
sorority relations is carried out through various inter-
sorority activities throughout the year. The bowling
tournament held in February, saw Alpha Phi sorority
take first place. Mardi Gras was the most important
philanthropic effort of Panhellenic, along with IFC,
and every sorority woman puts hours of work in this
Competition for the sale of raffle tickets helped the
Mardi Gras tremendously and Alpha Delta Pi sorority
came out on top.
The Panhellic Banquet and Workshop in the spring
ended the year for Pan Hell, when it elected the next
year's officers and revises the Constitution. At the
Banquet, the Honorary President, Dean Mawdsley and
other special guests are feted.
Dodie 0'Brien headed Pan Hell in 1950-51. Her
executive were: Vice-President-lean Long, Secretary-
Sheila Stevvartg Treasurer-Shirley Finch, and Activi-
i'Fraternity representatives met every Monday to discuss problems of rushing, etc., or to organize plans for the home-coming parade.
A committee was formed from membership to revise IFC constitution in order to make rushing rules stick.

The Interfraternity Council is composed of repre-
sentatives of each of the seventeen fraternities at U.l3.C.
Its main function is govern rushing. the acquisition
of members into fraternities, but in addition organizes
certain programmes of its own.
Together with Panhellenic, the IFC puts on the
Mardi Gras, the annual charity ball, which this year
again raised over 154,000.00 and the Song Fest, an
annual competition of choral singing.
This last year the fraternities, through the IFC,
supported the Homecoming float parade and the War
Memorial Gymnasium fund drive.
Also with Panhellenic, the IFC maintains a
31,000.00 bursary fund for needy students. A con-
siderable sum was raised to add to this bursary fund.
Both the IFC and UBC as a whole was honored
with the elevation of Bruce Lee to the presidency of
the Westerii Regional Interfraternity Conference.
The WRIFC comprises thirty-four universities and
colleges in the western United States and Canada and
represents over 62,000 students. Lee is the first Can-
adian to achieve this office.
He was also the official delegate to the National
Interfraternity Conference in New York, where he was
the main force in the attempt to form a National
Undergraduate Interfraternity Conference.
In addition he has been appointed by NIC to be a
member of a special committee to form this new

This year Alpha Gams have
worked in many UBC teams and
clubs, and sorority members have
positions on VVUS and XVAA.
Une of the largest projects sponsor-
ed by the active chapter and members
of our alumni is the annual "Winter
Wonderland" Cabaret, given in aid
of B.C.'s Spastic Society.
This is a part of a larger altruistic
project carried on by the fraternity on
a national scale.
Further funds are raised each year
to aid the Cotjitileetza Indian Hospital
The Christmas season is marked
annually by a visit to the Hospital,
when the girls take Christmas stock-
ings they have made.
Rounding out the activities for the
school year, the members of the ac-
tive chapter enjoy ten days together
in May at a camp.

Psi Upsilon Fraternity, founded at
Union College in Schenectady, New
York, in 1833, is one of the oldest
Greek Letter Fraternities in America.
At present there are 211 active chapters,
three of which are in Canada, UBC.

The local chapter, Zeta Zeta, was
affiliated with Psi Upsilon in 1955.
However, the chapter was in existence
as early as 1926 as the Alpha Kappa

society decided to petition Psi Upsilon.

initial meeting. The Charter mem-
bers chose the "Rhodes 1dea" for the
new fraternity and every effort has
been made to live up to this ideal
throughout the years.
From the beginning the fraternityis
policy has been one of gradual ex-
pansion. For this reason the number
of chapters has been kept down to
50. This spirit has been carried into
each chapter, and it is the intention
of every group to remain small, thus
promoting a truer fraternal feeling.

I am glad to have an opportunity to extend
greetings to the graduates of 1951. The past six
years have been exciting and strenuous ones for
all of us connected with the University, students and
staff alike. A great deal has been accomplished
in the physical sense and a great deal, too, I be-
lieve, in other ways as well. I am sure that the
young men and women who have been students
here during those years have contributed a good
deal to the University and to each other, and have
carried away with them not only a certain amount
of knowledge and understanding, but what is more
important, a conviction that things can be done for
themselves and their families and their country, if
men of goodwill and intelligence work together, in
a spirit of tolerance and understanding, for such
things. Internationally, the prospect is far from
promising and it seems certain that much of our
thought, our energy, our resources and our wealth
must be diverted from creative and constructive
developments to problems of defence and security.
I wish it were otherwise, but I see no escape from a
continuing period of struggle and sacrifice. I only
hope that all of us, and, more particularly, those of
you who are young and about to enter upon your
careers, will have the necessary courage and per-
severance in respect of these sacrifices, and, more
important, the intelligence and the determination
necessary to maintain and develop our country and
our society in ways that iustify our efforts and our

Largest faculty on the campus was
Faculty of Arts and Science.
Headed by psychology professor
Dean F. Chant, faculty consists of
Commerce, Physical Education, Home
Economics and Arts.
It was the first part of the university
in the days of the Fairview shacks.
Probably the best known of all the
professors in the Arts part
of the faculty is Professor
Earle Birney. Former Ed-
itor-in-Chief of the Publica-
tions Board in 1926, Dr.
Birney started hitting Can-
adian headlines when he
was bounced from UBC
because of editorial policy
of the then Weekly Ubys-
Since that time he
has written a consid-
erable amount of
poetry of which the
best known is 'Davidf
His first book on the
life of a private in the
Canadian Army was
published last year.
Heading the Phy-
sical Education de-
partment is w e ll
known athlete Bob
Osborne, who is also
president of the Canadian Athletic As-
His department got a big boost
when the Wzir Memorial Gymnasium
was finished this year. Complete
change-over to the new offices in the
million dollar gym, however. will DOI
take place till the start of the term.
One of the postwar schools on the
campus is the Home Economics. In
its ninth year as a course at UBC.
Home Ec. has grown to one of the
largest of its kind in Canada. Early
in Ianuary, President MacKenzie made
it a School with Professor C. S. Black
For the past year the school has
been supervising diets of 2,000 students
who eat meals on the campus.

details of adequate training

Mr. G. T. Cunningham's gift of

Dean of Forestry.
On May 23rd, 1950, the Department
of Forestry became a Facult' 2 d
y in ex-
actly one month later Professor
Besley was appointed as its
first Dean. History had been made
in one of UBC's most historical de-
As long ago as 1915 University
founders had considered this develo
and support on the part of
the forest industry in those
ment but lack of interest
days made it impossible.
In reviewing the early
days of the Department,
Dean Besley states, "forestry
as it is known today was
non-existent then. Only a
handful of professionally
trained foresters were
in B.C. and they were
in cutting as much of
the forest as possible
with the minimum
expense. There was
no attempt at refor-
Formal courses in
forestry didn't start at
UBC until 1923 but
from that period on
the forest industry
has come to depend
more and more on UBC graduates in
forestry to protect the dwindling forest
At present there are 9 teaching
members in the new Faculty as com-
pared to two in 1923. For the past
two years the Department has granted
degrees of Bachelor of Science in
Forestry and Bachelor of Applied
Science in Forest Engineering.
With the addition of the 9,800-acre
Haney Research Forest, together with
the E120,000 student quarters provided
on the property by the B.C. Loggers'
Association, UBC's new Faculty of
Forestry compares with the best on
The new Dean has been professor
and head of the Department since his
arrival at UBC in Iuly of 1948.

Eleven hundred Engineers are represent-
ed by the first two pictures on this page.
All eleven hundred of them seem quite
satisfied with the arrangement.
The middle picture is the close-knit in-
ner executive of the Engineers' Undergradu-
ate Society. Seated at the table is EUS
president Don Duguid. The fiery, red-
headecl Science student succeeded Cy White,
and continued blazed trail.
Duguid kept the Engineers in the news
with blood drive challenges, homecoming
queen campaigning, and an abortive attempt
to kidnap pubsters late in February.
Duguid's right-hand man was S. "FoXie"
Fox, third from right, who so capably
handled EUS finances. Patterson proved
that even a forty-beer drinker could take
good care of money.
Represented in the top picture is the rest
of the guiding force of EUS. Members of
the American Institute of Electrical En-
gineers, the American Society of Agricul-
tural Engineers, The American Society of
Mechanical Engineers, the Engineering
Institute of Canada. the Forestry Club, the
Nurses' Undergraduate Society, and the
Dawson Club served on this group.
Another member of the committee was
Al Wason, sitting to the far left of the pic-
ture. Wason edited the "Slipstick", the
Bottom picture on the page is the Law
Undergraduate Society executive. LUS
president this year was Bill Craig, seated
third from the right.
Lawyers orated and acted throughout the
year. Beauteous blonde in the picture is the

On February 28, 1949, the Faculty
of Graduate Studies became a reality
on this campus. At that time nine
young men comprised the total en-

Now with more than thirty students
carrying on research toward doctorate
degrees Graduate Studies has found
its place in the academic world.
The man who directs the
work of the faculty was
chosen for his long years
of experience as an academ-
ician, and for his outstand-

Drum Maiorettes stepped high during homecoming football game despite
the fact that the squad went down in defeat.
'zum a 'ofzetiea
Drum majorettes made their re-appearance on the
campus this year-part of the revived athletic spirit which
signalled the end of athletic lethargy.
Leader of the 12 high stepping lassies who graced home
football games was Gloria Newall, who was saddled with
the task of training a dozen girls for Homecoming celebra-
Gloria, an old hand at high stepping, was a member
of the original team of UBC drum majorettes who perform-
ed at football games two years before. After weeks of
coaching, the girls put on their first show for a capacity
Homecoming crowd in the UBC stadium.
The twelve stalwarts who braved the icy blasts of pre-
winter weather in scanty uniforms were: Meredith Thomas,
Irma Foster, Marilyn McLean, Ioan Kingsbury, Mary
McAlpine, Pat Terry, Ioan Vanderwalker, Mary Chadwick,
Pat Spring, Diane Leblanc, Marilyn Grant, and Gloria
At first, all the majorettes had to work with were
12 batons, left over from former days. Eventually, how-
ever, UBC's Kickapoo Club came to their rescue and
provided uniforms, such as they were, for exhibition.
The maiorettes even had a chance to strut before
strangers when they made their off-campus debut at Belling-
ham at a Thanksgiving Day football game between UBC
and Western Washington College of Education.

Bill Parker sits amongst ruins of his trailer. Two Arts students saved
his small son from what could have been fatal.
One student veteran almost lost his two-and-a-half-year
old son during the year, in a disastrous fire which swept
his trailer home at Acadia Camp.
Bill Parker, a first year physical education student,
could do nothing but sit disconsolately amongst the charred
ruins of his burnt out trailer the morning after the blaze.
In hospital, his son Stephen was in fair condition.
Artsmen Dick Yamabe and George Tolhurst first spotted
the blaze in the trailer camp late one Sunday night.
Tolhurst climbed through a window of the smoldering
trailer after Yamabee smashed it with his fist.
After giving the tot artificial respiration, he was taken
to Vancouver General Hospital.
More than SO Acadia Camp residents were aroused
by the blaze and turned out to help quell the flames.
Damage to the Parkers portable home was estimated at
5900. One-half of the trailer was gutted. but the bedroom,
from which little Stephen was rescued, suffered only smoke
and water damage.
Quick action by firemen of the University Endowment
Lands Fire Department prevented the blaze from spread-

were staged to raise interest in the mohile hlood hanla.
But incensed Artsmen turned out en masse at the he-
ginning of the drive and showed the campus that they
werent deaf to the challenge that had heen hurled at them.
After two days of donating. the Artsmen led the
Engineers hy 50 pints. An AMS meeting was hrolaen
up hy Nurses and Ifngineers who dragged their enemies
to the clinic at the rear of the Armory.
During the drive. Red Cross officials issued an emerg-
ency call for students who possessed O-negative hlood.
This unusual type was needed to replenish stocks which
had heen depleted hy transfusion to a patient in Vancouver
General Hospital following a lung operation.
Later in the campaign officials announced that Forestry
students had douhled their quota and nurses had donated
100 per cent. To meet their ohjective of 1.500 pints the
clinic decided to extend their time at UBC hy two days.

opinions by interesting and com-
petent people have always been a
feature of The Vancouver Sun, and
never has The Sun boasted a more
entertaining group of writers than
those who now appear daily in its
columns. These writers clothe the dry
bones of news with the flesh and juices
of thought and emotion and they have
made The Sun one of Canada's most

ha an obiective
th world' est valves.
If that were all, you might say We have already
reached our objective. But ours is a perpetual objective
- to produce the finest valves in the world and to
keep on making them better still!
Take jenkins Globe Valves, for example. Jenkins,
having concentrated for three quarters of a century on making
valves and valves only, produces dozens of different types
of Globe Valves, each designed to fill a specific need
better than any other valve you can buy.
The Figure 2058 Bronze Globe Valve shown here
is as nearly wear-proof, trouble-proof and maintenance-free
as any stock valve can be.
Before you buy any valve for a new installation or
for replacement, find out how much more you can get in
quality and dependability when you specify JENKINS.

book store. Above he waited on student wanting second-hand texts.
15' ook exchange
Hundreds of bargain-seeking students crowded into
the douhle committee room of Brock Hall in the first part
of the fall term, intent on heating the high cost of student
The ohieet of so much attention was the book ex-
change, managed by Iohn Hutton, fourth year Com-
merce, who helped students save up to 50 per cent of
the cost of new texts.
Graduating students and those with no further use for
their old texts left the hooks with the exchange, the price
they wanted for them clearly written on them. Hundreds
of students thumbed through piles of hooks in the com-
mittee room seeking bargains.
By mid-Qctoher, when most texts had heen dispensed
with, the hook exchange closed its doors and moved almost
551,000 cash down into the AMS offices where it resided,
Waiting to he claimed.
Forgetful grads, clearly not in need of money once
out in the business world, neglected to some extent to claim
money and unsold hooks. In the end, most of the deserted
texts were donated to the UBC hranch of the International
Student Service. who shipped them off to needy students
