A Year of Reassessment
During the past year Frank Walden in his scholarly
way used this editorial page to place before you the
basic policy of the Board of Management of the Alumni
Association. I hope to continue this practice in order
to draw to the attention of the readers of this magazine
some of the Board of Management's problems in its
relationship not only with the students and administration of the University but also with the business community and the provincial government.
At the Annual Dinner in May you elected an able
Board of Management to run the affairs of this Association. I hope that together we will be equal to the
responsibilities in the year ahead, which can best be
described as a year of austerity.
Our operational grant from the Board of Governors
for the coming year has not been increased; it has been
maintained at last year's level, even though we now have
2,000 more graduates to serve. To meet our budget we
are reducing our staff in the central office which will
force curtailment of some of our activities instead of
planned expansion. To offset the lack of staff, all members of the Board of Management and other interested
alumni volunteers will find themselves more closely involved in the committee work of the Association.
Because of this austerity we plan to discuss with the
University the feasibility of incorporating the functions
of the two publications, UBC Reports and UBC Alumni
Chronicle. It is our hope to produce and mail an Alumni
magazine to all graduates rather than to graduates
donating to an Alumni Annual Giving fund. To do this,
however, will require more money, and we hope that
by incorporating the budget of UBC Reports we will
be in a position to bring you a more thorough picture
of alumni and faculty affairs.
We intend to take the following steps in several other
important areas of our work:
• To increase contact between the University and the
business community, we will call together a council of
Past Presidents of this Association to meet with Dr.
Macdonald and possibly representatives of the Board of
Governors to discuss problems of mutual concern in the
University community.
• We intend to reassess the purposes of Alumni Annual Giving and work towards co-ordination of all University fund-raising activities through the Development
Fund. We have been hoping for the creation of an ongoing active Development Council for several years.
Perhaps this year we can stimulate interest in the Board
of Governors to resolve the problem.
• We hope to press for continuing close contact with
the administration and Board of Governors in their
relationship with the Provincial Government. Through
our members on Senate and through increased consultation with the Board of Governors we are sure the
Alumni Association can provide help when necessary
and when called upon for support. We believe that by
having the facts the Board of Management can make
a positive contribution to the welfare of our University.
• We intend to increase our activity and contact with
students, particularly undergraduates. We trust that
we will be asked to continue our association with them
on their Student Union Building project. An adequate
student centre is needed for our many commuting students.
In view of the fact that we now have three new
Universities it will be necessary to reassess our programme of branch work throughout the province, and
in particular to reassess the purposes of our recently
established Regional University Associations and our
relationship with them.
Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria,
Notre Dame University and junior colleges throughout
the province will soon have alumni activities of their
own commanding regional loyalty. Our fundamental
problem this year is to realign our programme keeping
in mind divided loyalties and continuing to concern
ourselves with the basic needs of higher education in
the whole province.
This University will need increasing support from
its graduates if its reputation is to be maintained, and
most of all it will need support from graduates living
in the lower mainland.
We must avoid fractionalized pressure on government, on industry and on our own alumni for support.
In recent weeks spokesmen for Simon Fraser University
and University of Victoria have indicated a willingness
and a desire to work with us. We hope to provide
leadership in this area and at the same time call upon
graduates of UBC to recognize the needs of their own

Buddhism books for Library
the university will expand work in the
field of religious studies as the result of
a Senate decision and a gift of books
worth $10,000 to increase library resources.
The UBC Senate has approved a proposal which will increase the number
of courses in religious studies and allow
the department to offer a major in the
The new major will be offered in
September for the 1963-64 session. The
number of courses available will be increased from six to nine, and the following year a senior scholar in the field of
Buddhism will, it is hoped, be added to
the faculty to develop this new field.
At present there are two full time and
two part time instructors in the department. About 100 students are taking the
six courses now offered by the department.
The Reverend William Nicholls, who
joined the UBC faculty in 1961 to direct
work in the field of religious studies, said
that when the present phase of development is complete, between 20 and 30
courses would be offered, and the teaching staff would increase to approximately eight persons.
He said that courses dealing with
Christianity would comprise about half
the offerings of the department in its
developed state, while the balance would
deal with Buddhism, Indian religions and
the Jewish faith.
Mr. Nicholls also announced that the
University will receive approximately
$10,000 worth of books on Buddhism
from Mr. Carroll Aikins, of Naramata,
B.C., who is presently purchasing the
library while on a round the world trip.
The gift of approximately 2000 volumes will mean that UBC will have a
unique collection, Mr. Nicholls said. It
will give UBC the only substantial Buddhist collection in Canada and will
include almost every book worth reading
on  the subject  in  the  English  language.
Mr. Nicholls said that Mr. Aikins had
also agreed to provide an endowment
which will allow the University to add
to the collection. Mr. Aikins will provide
additional funds for the making of transparencies of Buddhist art. and provision
of a scholarship for the leading UBC
student in the field.
Help! cries Librarian
the   university   of   British   Columbia's
library  needs  substantially  increased   fi-
Dr. Ranz
This is the burden of the annual report
of Dr. James Ranz, UBC's librarian, to
the University Senate for the year
ending August 31. 1962.
Dr. Ranz recommends a substantial
increase in funds for the purchase of new
books and older materials, which he
says are badly needed if the UBC library
is to provide adequate services to students
and members of faculty.
UBC, he says, needs to double its
present book purchase fund of $250,000
just as quickly as funds become available.
He added that the Senate library
committee plans to give serious and extended thought to the needs of the
library during the next few years.
"Without further study," he adds, "it
is apparent that substantial sums both
for graduate research and for the shoring up of existing services are needed
Despite the fact that few libraries in
North America can match UBC's growth
over the past ten years, it is doubtful
whether the library serves its users as
well today as it did ten years ago, Dr.
Ranz says.
Almost 4000 books ordered by faculty
members in the past year were not purchased for lack of funds, he says. For
the same reason, subscriptions were
placed for fewer than half the periodicals ordered.
The need for additional staff and
space is equally pressing, Dr. Ranz adds.
Four thousand recently acquired books
and several major collections await cataloguing, and for UBC's 14,000 students
the library can provide only 1800 seats—
less than one half the recommended
The library set new records for service
in 1961-62, the report states, yet once
again the services answered a still smaller
percentage of the need.
A total of $240,930 was spent on
library materials, Dr. Ranz says, but
only 35,235 volumes were added—2321
fewer than in the previous year. Factors contributing to the decrease in the number of volumes added are devaluation of
the Canadian dollar and increases in
book prices.
Circulation of library materials reached a new record of almost 600,000 volumes—a one-year increase of almost 25
per cent, the report states.
Dr. Ormsby heads history
Dean Frederic H. Soward has resigned
as head of the department of history at
the University of British Columbia,
President John B. Macdonald announced.
The President said Dean Soward
would continue to serve as a professor
in the department, director of international studies, and dean of UBC's Faculty
of Graduate Studies.
Professor Margaret Ormsby has been
appointed acting head of the history department for one year beginning July 1.
Dr. Ormsby
Dean Soward said his decision to
resign as head of the history department

Dean Soward has been a member of
the UBC faculty since 1922. He is a
graduate of the University of Toronto
and Oxford and holds an honorary degree from Carleton University, Ottawa.
Dean Soward was named head of
UBC's history department in 1953, and
was associate dean of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies until 1961, when he
succeeded Dr. Gordon Shrum as dean.
* * *
Dr. Macdonald also announced two
senior appointments to the UBC faculty
in the department of economics and
political science.
They are Dr. Ivan Avakumovic as
associate professor and Dr. Maw Lin
Lee as assistant professor.
Dr. Avakumovic, an expert in the
government and politics of countries of
eastern Europe and Russia, will come to
UBC from the University of Manitoba,
where he has been an assistant professor
of political science and international
relations since  1958.
Dr. Avakumovic is a graduate of
Cambridge University where he received
the degrees of bachelor and master of
arts, and Oxford University, where he
received his doctor of philosophy degree
in 1958.
Before coming to Canada, Dr. Avakumovic was an assistant lecturer in
politics at Aberdeen University in Scotland.
Dr. Lee, who works in the field of
economic statistics, is currently at the
University of Wisconsin.
He is a graduate of the National
Taiwan University in Taipei, Formosa,
where he was awarded his bachelor of
arts degree, Montana State University,
where he received his master of arts
degree, and the University of Wisconsin,
where he received his PhD.
A third appointment announced by the
President was that of Richard M. Bessom
as assistant professor in the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration.
Mr. Bessom, who will teach in the
division of marketing, is a graduate of
Cornell, where he received his bachelor
of arts degree, and the Stanford University graduate school of business,
where he received the master of business administration degree.
Since 1960 Mr. Bessom has been a
lecturer at the University of Washington
in Seattle.
Estate Management research
THE   REAL   ESTATE   INSTITUTE    of   British
Columbia   has   established   a    $100,000
Education and Research Foundation for
the expansion of academic work relating
to estate management at the University
of British Columbia.
Income from the $100,000 trust fund
will support scholarships, bursaries and
prizes to graduate and undergraduate
students in the field of estate management, enable UBC to purchase additional
library material, and finance research
projects in estate management.
The capital sum will be vested in the
Vancouver Foundation and the income
of approximately $5000 per year allocated by a grants committee made up of
six members from the Institute and three
past or present members of UBC's
Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration appointed by President
John B. Macdonald.
Colonel Herbert R. Fullerton, president of the Real Estate Institute of B.C.,
said "The education and research foundation now being established by the Real
Estate Institute will provide, in perpetuity, the necessary scholarship funds to
train and educate future teachers in the
field of real estate education; to develop
new teaching materials and texts, and to
provide opportunities for advanced
study and research in real estate for
Canadians at a Canadian University."
Professor Philip White, head of the
division of estate management in UBC's
Commerce Faculty, said the income from
the trust fund would provide for further
expansion of work in the field of real
estate at UBC.
He said funds for aid to students
and purchase of library materials were
most welcome, but the greatest need lay
in the area of research.
"We will now be able," he said, "to
expand our programme of research in
the area of Canadian mortgage policies
and the more efficient use of mortgage
funds, and begin new work on the
structure of real estate markets in Canada
and the function of private ownership
of real property."

Forest Director
The appointment of Robert E. Breadon
as director of the University of British
Columbia's 10,000 acre research forest
near Haney, B.C., was announced by
President John B. Macdonald.
Mr. Breadon succeeds Professor F.
Malcolm Knapp, who retires in June
after serving as a UBC faculty member
for 41 years.
Mr. Breadon received the degree of
bachelor of science in forestry with first
class  honours  from  UBC  in   1950.   He
was awarded the degree of master of
forestry   by   Duke   University   in   1951.
He is currently employed as a forester
with Forestal Forestry and Engineering
International Limited as a technical
supervisor on forest inventory and
management projects in Canada, U.S.A.,
Mexico and Pakistan.
From 1950 until 1958 Mr. Breadon
was employed by the B.C. Forest Service
as a party chief and assistant forester in
the forest surveys and inventory division.
He was in charge of applied forest
mensuration projects connected with provincial inventory.
Mr. Breadon is a member of the
Association of B.C. Foresters and the
Canadian Institute of Forestry.
As director of the UBC research
forest Mr. Breadon will be responsible
for the preparation of management and
operational plans, direction of all logging
operations and contracts, initiating, planning, and supervision of research project,
and the supervision of records, budget,
and  personnel  employed   at  the  forest.
Prof. Knapp, who will assist Mr.
Breadon in his post as director for one
year, first joined the UBC faculty in
1922 after graduation from the University of Washington, where he received
the degree of master of science in
forestry, and the University of Syracuse,
where he was awarded the degree of
bachelor of science in forestry.
In 1941 Prof. Knapp selected the
present 10,000-acre forest as a research
site for UBC. He was named director of
the forest in 1946, three years before it
became UBC property under a Crown
grant from the B.C. government.
Dean Thomas Wright, head of UBC's
forestry faculty, said that as a result
of Prof. Knapp's leadership and guidance
the University Forest today has become
one of the outstanding research and
demonstration forests in North America.

Dr. J. R. Adams of zoology returned
last December after six months of research at the Institute of Medical
Research in Kuala Lumpur.
Dr. R. F. Scagel, professor of oceanography and a member of the department
of biology and botany, spent four
months last year collecting seaweed from
the Indian Ocean under the auspices of
the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
He was invited to participate in the three-
year oceanographic expedition which
is under the overall sponsorship of
UNESCO. The half-ton of seaweeds he
collected will take him the next three
years to identify and classify.
Dr. John K. Friesen, director of University extension, spent three months last
year   in   Asia   and   Africa   under   the
auspices of UNESCO.
Royal Commission Duties
Two members of the department of
economics and political science have
been attached to Royal Commissions:
Dr. J. H. Young, head of the department,
will return this summer after a year and
a half with the Royal Commission on
banking and financing. Dr. R. M. Will is
on leave for the next academic year
to carry on investigations for the Royal
Commission on taxation.
Mr. Bernard Blishen of the department of anthropology and sociology returns to UBC this summer after two
years' leave of absence to carry on research on behalf of the Royal Commission on health services.
Scholarships in Russia
a second graduate student in the
University of British Columbia's geography department has been awarded an
exchange scholarship to Russia for the
coming academic year.
Robert North
He is Robert N. North, Vancouver,
who has been appointed a British Council exchange student. He will study at
the University of Moscow in 1963 and
Earlier this spring Brenton M. Barr,
BA'62, a candidate for a master's degree,
was awarded a World University Service
of Canada exchange scholarship for a
year's study in Russia.
Mr. North, a graduate of Cambridge
University, came to UBC in 1960 on a
Canada Council fellowship and is the
first Ph.D. candidate in UBC's geography
He has been working in the field of
transport geography of western Siberia
at UBC and hopes to continue work in
the same field in Russia. He will return
to UBC in   1964 to complete his Ph.D.
Mr. North speaks fluent Russian as
the result of having learned the language
during his career  in  the  British  Army.
Dr. Tougas
To Senegal for Summer
Senegal, the oldest French settlement in
Africa, and Gambia, the oldest English
settlement which is a tiny coastal enclave
of Senegal, will be headquarters for Dr.
Gerard Tougas this summer on the
steamy West African coast. His prime
purpose is to study developing literatures
in French-speaking African countries, but
there are interesting comparisons for
Canada in the cultural relationships between the English and French-speaking
African states.
Dr. Tougas, professor of French in the
department of Romance studies, has
made "peripheral literatures" in French
a specialty. He has already published a
History of French Canadian Literature
and Studies in Contemporary Swiss
Literature. This study of developing
literatures in French-speaking African
countries is supported by grants from
Carnegie Corporation and UBC's committee on research. He will also buy
materials, with a fund from the University Library, to establish a nucleus of
French African literature at UBC.
Senegal has had intimate associations
with the French language and culture for
two centuries. The educated Senegalese
speak excellent French and the country
has the unusual distinction of having a
poet, Leopold Senghor, as prime minister. He is, moreover, one of the greatest
poets in the French language today.
British Gambia, in places just a few
miles wide, comprises the two banks of
the Gambia River. Here 300,000 Gam-
bians live, surrounded by 3 million
Senegalese. Cherishing their British institutions, the Gambians have put up
determined resistance to fusion with
Senegal, which is the reverse of our
Canadian experience.

in Hall of Scientists, Moscow, in March. On Dr. Warren's right is another of the
40 foreign visitors, Dr. Green of California who is interested in a "soft" landing
on the moon. Their scientist-interpreters sit beside them.
The late W. J. Vernadsky was the father of geochemistry in Russia and one of the
first scientists to recognize the importance of biochemical processes in geochemistry.
Dr. Warren, professor of geology, was invited to give a paper at the conference. He
cited some recent investigations illustrating how geochemical and medical knowledge
can be integrated advantageously. His paper will be published in Russia and England.
Anatomy research
Two visiting professors will join the
staff of the department of anatomy in the
Faculty of Medicine for the academic
year 1963-64.
They are Dr. Leonard F. Belanger,
head of the department of histology and
embryology in the school of medicine at
the University of Ottawa, and Professor
Fred W. Dunihue, of the University of
Vermont Medical College.
Dr. Belanger will carry out teaching
and research at UBC in the next academic year. Dr. Dunihue will come to
UBC on a fellowship awarded by the
United States National Institutes of
Health to carry out research in renal
physiology (kidney research).
Dr. Sydney M. Friedman, head of
UBC's anatomy department, said he was
delighted that two outstanding teachers
and researchers had agreed to visit UBC
for a year. "Their activities here will be
beneficial to students and other members
of the faculty," he added.
Dr. Belanger was organizer and first
professor of the department which he
heads at the University of Ottawa. He is
a graduate of the University of Montreal,
where he received his BA in  1931, and
Northwestern University, which awarded
his medical degree in 1937.
Dr. Belanger was elected a fellow of
the Royal Society of Canada in 1958.
Dr. Dunihue has been associated with
the University of Vermont since 1936.
He holds the degrees of bachelor of arts
from Wabash College, and master of
science and doctor of philosophy degrees from New York University.
Dr. Dunihue was a visiting professor
of anatomy at the University of Pittsburgh in 1959-60, and currently holds
a research grant from the National Heart
Glaucoma research
Dr. Stephen M. Drance, director of
glaucoma clinic at the University of
Saskatchewan, will join the faculty of
the University of British Columbia in
July to work in UBC's new eye research
unit at 2550 Willow Street which was
officially opened in May.
Dr. Drance, who has been appointed
an associate professor in the UBC department of surgery, will direct the
glaucoma research programme in the
new unit.
He will initiate the first statistical
pilot study in Canada to investigate the
long-term effects of abnormally high
pressure in the eye and vision.
Glaucoma, the commonest cause of
blindness in Canada, destroys the seeing
parts of the eye as a result of increasing
pressure within the eye. The disease can
be checked if it is detected early.
Dr. Drance was educated at the University of Edinburgh, where he received
his medical degree in 1948. He did postgraduate work in ophthalmology at the
University of London and was named a
fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons
in  1956.
From 1955 to 1957 Dr. Drance was a
research associate in the department of
ophthalmology at the University of
Saskatchewan in 1957 as director of the
glaucoma clinic.
Lung disease survey
a seven-week survey designed to throw
light on the causes of chronic lung
disease began in the Fraser valley community of Chilliwack May 15.
600 Chilliwack adults have been asked
to co-operate in the study to be conducted by Dr. Donald Anderson, assistant professor of medicine and preventive medicine at the University of British
Columbia, and Dr. Benjamin Ferris, Jr.,
12 associate professor of environmental
health and safety at the Harvard University School of Public Health.
The survey is being conducted in
co-operation with the Upper Fraser
Valley Health Unit and financed with a
$9,080 public health research grant
awarded by the Department of National
Health and Welfare in Ottawa.
The results of the Chilliwack survey
will be compared to results obtained
from a similar study carried out in 1961
by Dr. Anderson and Dr. Ferris in
Berlin, New Hampshire, a major pulp
and paper producing city in the northeastern United States, which has considerable atmospheric pollution due to
sulpher dioxide and other lung irritants.
The researchers want to see if there is
the same amount of respiratory disease
in a clean, pollution-free city when
differences in smoking habits and age
are taken into account.
"We selected Chilliwack for the survey," Dr. Anderson said, "because it is
a clean city in a rural setting without any
industry that would cause serious atmospheric pollution, and because its residents have always shown a readiness to
co-operate in such studies."
Another function of the survey will be
to determine the prevalence of various
respiratory symptoms such as coughing,
production of mucous, and colds
and wheezing in a normal, healthy
A third aim will be to determine the
prevalence of indigestion and ulcer
symptoms in the survey group.
The 600 Chilliwack residents were
contacted by mail and asked to report
to the Upper Fraser Valley Health Unit
where they answered a questionnaire and
took a series of breathing tests lasting
about 15 minutes.
Residents are asked how long they have
lived in the area, the type of work they
have done, the presence or absence of
respiratory symptoms and diseases, and
their smoking habits.
Those taking part are also weighed and
asked to take a breathing test which will
measure such things as lung capacity. No
x-rays or blood tests are being taken and
all information obtained will be confidential.
Because the questionnaire has been
coded in advance the answers will be
fed into a computer to obtain fast
While the research team is at work,
the B.C. Research Council will be carrying out an eight-month air pollution
survey of the Chilliwack area to measure
dust fall, and levels of sulphur dioxide,
hydrocarbons, and ozones.
"Our interest in this kind of study,"
Dr. Anderson said, "stems from the fact
that chest diseases such as chronic bronchitis, asthma and pulmonary emphysema, a term applied to the final stages
of lung disease, is the fastest growing
cause of death in North America."
The rate of increase in the U.S. in the
past ten years has been seven times, he
added, while in Canada the rate in
increase has been five times in the same

Canadian University Service Overseas
"When the conversation with a shopkeeper in town turns on education, it becomes clear that parents' desire to give
their children the best available education takes precedence over other considerations. They eagerly ask, 'How long
are you staying?', with the implication
that they hope the visit will be a long
one. Even two or three years sounds pitifully short when compared with the need,
and both they and you know it."
In report from  Walter Herring
Canada's unpretentious peace corps does
not get much in the way of publicity,
and even less is known about UBC's
pioneering that played no small part in
getting this national non-governmental
agency started. Yet the first volunteers
from UBC are back from Ghana already.
They are Judy Foote and Jocelyn King
(now Mrs. Harold Anderson), graduates
in Home Economics, who spent a year
and a half in the interior of the country
training Ghanaian women, under the
direction of the Mass Education Branch
of Department of Social Welfare.
Another "wave" went out in 1962—
three of these, Colin Johnstone, Walter
Herring and Brian Bayly, are teaching
in Sarawak; two others, Graeme Balcom
and Lome Lane are teaching in Ghana,
and another, Chris Siggers, is also in
Ghana as an engineer. There would
have been many more to carry TUUM
EST into other lands, had there been
money to send them. There is no shortage of volunteers, and no shortage of
requests for Canadian graduates in agriculture, forestry, education, medicine,
nursing, home economics or engineering
from various countries in Africa, Asia
and in our own hemisphere.
Our graduates go where we know they
are needed and are paid local rates for
the job they do. The Canadian University
Service Overseas, set up in 1961 by Canadian universities, in response to the need
to create something similar to the Peace
Corps in the United States, exists for the
twofold purpose of correlating the requests with the candidates, and of raising, by voluntary subscription, the funds
to transport them there and back.
There is, of course, a need in the total
scheme of foreign aid for the expensive
expert who may be costing you and me
some $10,000 a year, but there is also
room for the unspectacular and inexpensive—for the graduates of this and other
universities who are willing to go and
spend two years overseas serving and
learning, at no cost to the taxpayer. They
go singly and work with the people of
the countries that ask for them; they have
no pretensions.
Certainly, it is idealistic, but let us
not forget that as a trading nation we are
going to need people who know something about the people with whom we
hope to trade. It costs us on the average
of $1,500 each to finance our volunteers
for two years overseas.
There are ten waiting to go this summer—whether they stay here or get the
chance to go, depends on the success of
the current fund-raising campaign, under
the chairmanship of G. V. Hutchinson,
supervisor of the Vancouver branch of
the Bank of Nova Scotia, who has volunteered to co-ordinate the fund-raising
activities in the community on behalf of
the Senate Committee, chaired by John
Wood of the Extension Department.
Members of the Alumni are urged to
contribute to the fund, and may do so
through Alumni Annual Giving, 252
Brock Hall, earmarking their donations.
Contributions are, of course tax deductible.

Mrs.  Ronald Graham   receives  honorary-
life membership from retiring president.
Franklin E. Walden, retiring president of the Alumni
Association, reported on his year oj office at the Annual
Dinner Meeting on May 16.
He had this to say about higher education in the
province and the alumnus' role as the public voice of
the University:
this year has been one of great change in the affairs
of higher education in this province. Speaking to the
Annual Meeting a year ago I suggested that the efforts
of our Association should be concentrated upon assistance in the development of a sensible plan for the
future. At that time I expressed the hope that a year
hence I would be able to report that a satisfactory plan
had been determined and that your Association had an
active part in its determination.
This I can now do and also state that it has constituted the most active area of the Association's work
during the year. Immediately upon his arrival in Vancouver, Dr. Macdonald, the new President, announced
his intention of proceeding with a survey for the development of a plan for higher education in the Province.
You are all now familiar with the essentials of this plan,

a part of which has been translated into prospective
accomplishment much more quickly than would have
seemed possible.
The Association continued its programme of assistance to regional groups in setting up, through the
Branches committee under David Brousson, several
conferences, the last of which took place in Trail on
May 11. The first of these conferences during 1961
were of a general nature to consider the need for extension of our higher education programme but, following
the publication of Dr. Macdonald's report, four more
conferences were held and these took the form of public
forums for its study.
The conferences have also resulted in the formation
of regional organizations of our Association, so that
there are now three regional representatives on the
Board of Management, one each from Vancouver
Island, Fraser Valley, and Okanagan-Mainline. It is
hoped that at least two more will be added in the
coming year.
The area of most concern to alumni of the University
of B.C. must be its continuation as a University of high
rank. Yet its future as such stands in jeopardy. As a
state supported University it is dependent for the largest
part of its revenue on the Provincial government. Tn the
past, the amount by which the grant has fallen short of
the budget has never been made public. This spring,
however, the Board of Governors, in an appeal for public support, announced that the government grant fell
short by $1,600,000 of its minimal requirements.
This is a matter of vital public concern, not only for
this year, but in the immediate future when the whole
new higher education system stands in peril if UBC is
to be prevented, by lack of funds, from giving the
leadership upon which the success of the whole system
While continuing to care for undergraduate needs,
UBC must strengthen and expand its graduate schools
before it can hope to maintain a competitive position in
the academic community, attracting and retaining the
scholars that make its useful existence possible.
As members of the community, alumni can and must
be the public voice of the University. The Board of
Governors has this year given us the facts concerning
the needs of the University. Let us hope they will continue to do so and be prepared to justify them to the
community. Higher education is of vital public concern
and its purposes will not be served by conjecture,
innuendo and perpetual hide and seek through a maze
of contradictory statistics.

soapbox and
megaphone came in
handy   during
On the edge of a whirlwind: that's where we were
in the Alumni offices during the 1963 Student Action
Campaign. Two weeks in March, one for planning, one
for action, were one prolonged burst of student energy
that swept almost every student into meetings, parades
and petitioning and sent 500 of them by bus to towns
throughout British Columbia.
Everyone was in the campaign. "Student Council
types", "Brock types", Dietrich Luth the campus soapboxer, presidents of most of the campus clubs, even
the campus communist took part. It was the Alma
Mater Society exercising its freedom to act.
Here is a close-up of the campaign as we saw it in
the Alumni Association, and as the students saw it
themselves, based on the ebullient Ubyssey and on notes
made by Malcolm Scott, incoming president of the
Students' Council and Jim Ward, incoming first vice-
president. They were co-chairmen of the co-ordinating
committee for the Student Action Campaign. It could
be called "How the students backed Mac by really trying."
Why did it start so suddenly?
Rumour became a certainty—the Ubyssey found out
—that UBC had not received the full increase asked
for in the operating grant. "Premier Bennett sliced $1.6
million worth of skin from UBC's back with his budget
paring knife and campus rebels took to working overtime in dark cellars planning action week," is the way
a Ubyssey editor put it.
The Academic Symposium in February was the
hatchery for some of the ideas; the President's report
on Higher Education in British Columbia and a plan
for the Future, with recommendations to create new
universities and colleges, was a major topic and everyone agreed with his timing—the future had to start
today. An important part of his plan was to strengthen
UBC, the only established university. Without the
budget asked for this was impossible. The news about
the budget slice triggered the whole campaign.

After annua! meeting busses and cars transported students to Sunset Beach where downtown parade formed.
Tuesday March 5th—"We discussed what the gov't
was doing and what the Board of Govs were doing,"
notes Ward, "we knew only that Mac had obtained an
increase in operating budget of $1 m., $1.6 m. short
of what he should have received.
"In view of the inactive Board of Govs & the silent
gov't we decided something had to be done. The first
thing was to set up a committee. . . . The leaders of
the committee were temporarily to be Belfont, Bradbury and Ward. We decided to have a meeting Friday.
. . . Informed Scott of what was developing."
"There was originally no concern over the coming
year's finances," says Malcolm Scott, "as no one appeared to think that the University would receive an
inadequate grant. There was a good deal of controversy
on how students could help the implementation of Dr.
Macdonald's  report."
On Friday afternoon 6,000 students signed a petition
for a supplementary estimate for UBC. It was telegraphed to the Minister during the debate on education
estimates in the legislature that same afternoon.
That evening Scott, Brian Marson, Bryan Belfont and
Ward left for Kelowna to attend the Alumni Association's Saturday conference on higher education.
Driving back to Vancouver on Sunday they planned
action for the following week under these headings:
high school committee; Victoria College co-ordination;
labour unions; fraternities; undergrad presidents; literature, instructions, facts; print shop; transport; city
street-corner petitions; general meeting and demonstration; city residence petitions; public relations; coordinator's office.
The notes on the results run the gamut from "Success!" to "Highly successful." They had many willing
On Monday evening, March 11, a full meeting of the
Students' Council finally adopted the plan, after "rather
impassioned debate" which included the many guests,
one of them a representative of the Victoria students.
After this crucial step, "we went to work that evening,"
notes Jim Ward.
At a special meeting on Tuesday 350 members of
the Faculty Association heard Belfont, Keith Bradbury,
Scott and Doug Stewart outline their plans and ask for
support. "The students were tremendous!" reported a
member of the faculty later. A resolution was passed
calling for "whole-hearted support and co-operation."
On Wednesday at noon 1450 of the 1750 Victoria
College students gave an enthusiastic hearing to Malcolm Scott. He reminded them that they would be
starting their university's history, as UBC students had,
by taking independent action on its behalf.
In the meantime the scurrying figures in the Brock
had the downtown canvass, the Annual General Meeting, the Interior Campaign, the busses and kits for the
students all lined up for the next day. The students
going to the Interior were briefed and bus leaders and
town leaders chosen.
Daily bulletins and publicity information from the
Alumni office had alerted all our branch contacts in
the province. They were standing by to help the busloads of students. Last minute information was telephoned by Tim Hollick-Kenyon or sent by the students'
short-wave radio, HamSoc.
Thursday March 14th was action day. Six thousand
students at the mass meeting gave Dr. Macdonald a
standing ovation when he spoke to them although his
enthusiasm seemed to be in inverse proportion to theirs.
"Does Mac back Mac?" headlined the Ubyssey the
next  day.   Then   the   students   going   to the  Interior

climbed into the waiting busses with their bags and their
information kits, 500 of them, and went off on the most
important part of the campaign, spreading the word
wide into the province. Smaller groups had already left
the day before by car for distant points in B.C.
In downtown Vancouver, led by student pipers and
drummers, 3500 marched four abreast to the Court
House lawn, heard Dr. Norris of the history department
address them, then dispersed to petition on the street
corners and at shopping centres (leaving a crew behind
to clean up the Court House lawn!)
Sunday night the bus-loads from the Interior returned
to Brock Hall with 70,000 signatures, and found President Macdonald waiting with the committee to greet
them—and meet most of them for the first time. The
Ubyssey reported their experiences:
This Is the Way It Was in Horsefly, B.C.
Five hundred students who took the petitions to the interior
over the weekend returned to UBC Sunday with 500 different
stories to tell.
There was:
• a man who signed the petition in his bathtub;
• a lot of people in the Okanagan who thought "Mac" re
ferred to a kind of apple;
# A petitioner who sat up from 1 to 4 a.m. trying to get his
father to sign the petition. He finally did.
# those who thought Mac is a communist, and others who
didn't sign because of the "atheistic professor."
# the man who said: "All you have at UBC are booze and
sex parties and all the girls get pregnant;"
# the nuns at a school in Kamloops who pinned "Back Mac"
cards in  their habits;
Radio stations all over the province devoted time to the
campaign with interviews, spot announcements, and news
But the hardest workers were the students themselves.
Three students took an over-night train from Kamloops to
McBride, where they got 600 signatures in one day. McBride
has a population of 800.
As they arrived back to coffee and doughnuts at UBC, their
cards were changed to read "I'm back Mac."
Our alumni branch contacts rose nobly to the occasion, a good many of them in the middle of the night.
Dr. Henniger in Grand Forks took the bus-load, driver
and all, to the community hospital, the only place they
could get a cup of coffee at 2 a.m. In Quesnel, the whole
alumni group was down at 3 a.m. to greet the students.
In Revelstoke, Mary MacKay arrived early, as she
thought, to meet the bus and found the spokesman,
John Abrahamson, waiting for her. The bus had
arrived at 3 a.m. They sat for an hour in her parked
car, reviewing the plans for the students,—"Am sure
the cruising RCMP must have wondered what Mrs. H.
J. MacKay was doing parked with a strange man on a
street corner at that hour of the morning!" The eight
home-town students were kept busy that weekend. They
spoke at the high school, the Rotary luncheon, the
Canadian Club meeting, at an NDP rally and at an
Elks banquet.
18 The Rev. Newton Steacy, our branch contact
in Prince George, signs petition for Luci Denis, 2 Ed
and Neil Killingbeck, I Comm, both of Prince George.
Cec Hacker's house in Abbotsford was commandeered by his daughter Joan as petitioners' headquarters. (In 1932, he had seized the basement of his
father's South Vancouver church for the same purpose;
that was in depression days when the University was
threatened with closure).
Don Stewart of Powell River had extra petitions and
letters run off and drove some of the students to Vancouver on Sunday. He was highly impressed by the enthusiastic, intelligent, mature and responsible approach
of the students, and their well-planned campaign.
"It was admitted that the young lady who appeared
before the local Rotary Club," wrote Roy Thorstenson
from Hope, "answered questions and handled the
situation better than most of the Rotarians themselves
could have done."
John Welton reported from Trail that the reception
was cool at first because of a Trail Times editorial the
day before, but it warmed as the campaign progressed
and because of the students' presentation on CJAT's
"Open Line" programme (which he had arranged).
They also spoke on radio. Mimi Roberts, 4 Arts, the
town's group leader, noted: "The trek to Trail was very
successful and we netted approximately 3,700 signatures. The trip back to Vancouver on Sunday was especially enjoyable as Trail produced more signatures
than its rival city, Nelson."
This has been a close-up. Now let us look at the
campaign in the wider context.
The President's report was made public only at the
end of January. The government, with dazzling speed,
acted to create three new universities and new community and junior colleges; but the President's financial
recommendations were not included.
The financial implementation of the Macdonald report is what the Alma Mater Society is asking for. More
money must be spent; they want it spent wisely. In the
meantime they want UBC's budget slice restored.
The Board of Governors has never published the
operating budget requested nor by how much the provincial grant has fallen short — until now. Since the
campaign, on April 9, they made a full statement on
both budget and grant for 1963-64. (The full text of
their statement is printed in the current issue of UBC
The students are not yet satisfied. Says Malcolm
Scott: "If the Board of Governors don't get their full
grant they should make public the fact at once, and
aggressively seek the funds required from government,
business and industry—instead of flitting on and off
the campus once a month to bemoan their plight!"
Since the campaign, too, a very full statement on provincial government assistance to UBC and Victoria
College has been given wide distribution by the Minister of Education. It shows most impressive increases
in grants since 1952. But in 1952 the University had
not yet caught up with the costs of the post-war student enrolment. In 1956, all students and staff from the
three provincial Normal Schools were transferred to the
new College of Education at UBC and Victoria College.
The three Normal Schools were closed.
For Malcolm Scott, the Minister's statement proves
nothing. "The fact that some millions of dollars are
currently being invested in higher education is not a
relevant measure of the adequacy or inadequacy of government assistance to the universities," he wrote recently. "The real measure lies in a comparison of the
requirements of the future with the level of excellence
and the scope of the present University programme.
"Dr. Macdonald's report has stressed that we face a
crisis in higher education. Reference to the present niggardly grants and a summation of the amount appropriated over the past 10 years is an exercise in futility.
Let us not permit a fixation with statistics to blind us to
What did the students' action campaign achieve?
They collected over 230,000 signatures as evidence of
support for higher education throughout the province;
they have told a great many people of the financial
plight of the University; they have drawn most unusual
statements from the Minister of Education and the
Board of Governors.
And they are not through yet.

Simon Fraser
by Gordon M. Shrum,
In his introduction to the Letters and Journals of
Simon Fraser, Kaye Lamb says "Simon Fraser is the
most neglected of the major explorers of Canada."
This oversight should be at least partially redressed by
naming one of the new universities after this rugged
pioneer who made the first historic journey down the
river which bears his name.
Some of the senior editors of the Chronicle have submitted a list of questions about Simon Fraser University which I shall try to answer as briefly as possible.
Leslie Peterson chose the name, but he seems to be
too modest to admit that he also suggested it. In any
case, I like it and cannot think of one more appropriate
for a potentially great university serving the valley of
the Fraser and the great metropolitan area which has
grown up around the landing where Simon Fraser
ended his journey.
The municipalities in the Lower Fraser Valley each
offered large tracts of land suitable for a university site
serving twenty thousand students. It was extremely
difficult to choose the one that would best meet both
immediate and future requirements of the University.
The Burnaby Mountain site meets the functional demands and, in addition, rivals the Point Grey Campus
of UBC in natural beauty and grandeur. This site will
present a challenge to B.C. architects to create an
overall building plan which will match and bring to a
focus the dignity, colour, and splendour of the panoramic circle of mountains, rivers, ocean inlets, rich
farm lands and dynamic urban communities surrounding the mountain.
Eric Nicol, in one of his questions, reminds me of
Leacock's prescription for a new university which starts
with a men's common room, next a library, and then
adds a few professors, classrooms and laboratories.
Although I agree, and all these we must have, unfor-
20 Burnaby Mountain, site of B.C.'s new university.
tunately we must acquire them simultaneously if we
are to enroll students in September 1965.
Some fears have been expressed about the ability of
a new university, without graduate facilities, to attract
top-grade professors. Fortunately, Ph.D. training has
not completely killed the pioneering spirit and I am
confident that the challenges presented by a completely
new university — not only a new campus and new
buildings, but a new curriculum, new methods of instruction and a favourable climate for creative teaching
— will attract outstanding scholars and teachers even
in competition with the older institutions.
The library should present few problems. Books for
course work can be purchased. The research collections
at UBC will no doubt be available to staff and students at SFU. One would think only of complementing, not duplicating, these collections and making these
available to UBC scholars.
Residences will come with time, and will provide inexpensive accommodation, I don't mean army huts,
which students from families with incomes of $5,000
per year or less can afford. Seventy-five percent of the
families in B.C. are in this group and they produce at
least their fair share of the top students in our schools.
The main body of students will commute either by bus
or pool car. Winners of the architectural competition
will be asked to include in their overall plan an inexpensive solution to the parking problem. This condition will no doubt reduce the number of competitors.
Eric Nicol also enquires if there will be a place for
sports or will the "more cloistered virtues be emphasized." The preliminary plans call for more playing
fields than UBC has and I hope that we can start with
gymnasiums for both men and women as well as an
indoor swimming pool. I would like to see physical
education emphasized but not to the point where it is
compulsory. The locker rooms will, no doubt, provide
facilities for indoor extra-curricular activities!
Mamie Moloney has an enquiry about the continuation of the first and second year programs at UBC, I
expect that they will continue, but as UBC concen-
rates more on the professional schools and graduate
work some first and second year students will gradually be shifted to a two year college in Vancouver City
and to SFU. By placing the emphasis on undergraduate
programs these institutions should attract the students.
There might be a differential in the fees. Professional
and graduate work is more expensive and this might
be reflected in the fees of all students at UBC.
Your Editor wishes to know why we didn't choose
either Oakalla or the B.C. Penitentiary site where there
would be "ready made buildings and some tradition
for college spirit." These two sites, as well as one at
Essondale, were considered. The latter, Munday Lake
area, was a runner-up in the overall sweepstakes because of the favourable site characteristics. The possibility of recruiting part-time specialists from the institution is a possible advantage that was apparently overlooked.
Finally, I am asked—"Who is going to diwy up the
public funds?" At the present time Victoria is the main
source of public funds. I am confident SFU will get its
fair share. It will be the responsibility of all the universities and those interested in higher education to convince the taxpayers and, through them, the members
of the Legislature and the Government that the universities are meeting a vital educational need and doing
it in the most efficient and economical manner.
In the past there has been no local competition for
UBC but this state of affairs will be changed in the
future with the establishment of Simon Fraser University. How far in the future depends upon many factors,
but whenever it comes it: will strengthen rather than
weaken UBC—an institution which commands and deserves the loyalty of all its graduates as well as former
staff members.

International House.
Studies in
Seventh Annual
Summer School Seminar
on Public Affairs
The question of whether or not Canada should
join the Organization of American States is once again
coming to prominence in the press and in political
An American once wrote that the greatest lack suffered by Latin America is the lack of understanding
by North Americans. Sir Oliver Franks, in his address
to the 1961 graduates of UBC, stated: "The North-
South problem is the new problem and the new problem is the right relationship between the industrial
countries to the North and the developing peoples of
the South."
This year, the Department of University Extension's
Summer School on Public Affairs will conduct a week-
long area study of Latin America. The programme will
present, at the outset, three background lectures on
the history, geography and culture of Latin America.
On Tuesday, July 2 at 3:30 p.m., Dr. James F.
King, professor of history at the University of California, Berkeley, will outline the history of Latin America with particular emphasis on the last 35-40 years.
Time will be allowed for questions and discussions following his paper. On Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m.,
Dr. A. C. Gerlach, currently president of the American
Association of Geographers will examine the geographical aspects of Latin America, with emphasis on
economic and demographic factors.
On Wednesday afternoon at 3:30, Dr. Carlos
Garcia-Prada, professor emeritus at the University of
Washington, will examine the cultural influences in
Latin America.
On Wednesday evening, a panel of diplomatic and
academic experts will examine the underlying problems
of power and revolution. The panel, chaired by Dr.
Marcel Roussin of the University of Ottawa, will in
clude: His Excellency Sergio Correa da Costa, Ambassador of Brazil; His Excellency Americo Cruz, Ambassador of Cuba; Dr. James F. King; and Dr. A. R.
Beckwith, chairman of the Department of Business
Administration at the University of the Pacific, Stockton, California.
The sessions on Thursday, July 4, will deal with
economic problems faced by Latin America, in the
afternoon, Dr. Victor Urquidi, an economist from
Mexico who took part in the 29th Couchiching Conference, will outline the economic problems faced by
Latin America. Dr. A. R. Beckwith will comment on
Dr. Urquidi's paper and there will be time for questions and discussion. At the evening session on Thursday a panel will examine development of the economic
potentialities of Latin America, with H. Leslie Brown
(BA'28), assistant deputy minister of the Department
of Trade and Commerce, acting as chairman. Panellists
include His Excellency the Ambassador of Brazil, His
Excellency the Ambassador of Cuba, Dr. Urquidi, Dr.
Beckwith and Leslie Rohringer, who has spent a number of years with various oil companies in Latin America and is now a member of the staff at UBC.
To conclude the seminar, on Friday, July 5 at 3:30
p.m., a panel of Canadians will discuss Canada's relations with the Latin American states. Mr. A. J. Pick,
head of the Latin American division of the Department
of External Affairs will be the chairman of this panel
composed of Dean F. H. Soward, Faculty of Graduate
Studies; Dean G. F. Curtis, Faculty of Law, and Dr.
Marcel Roussin.
The Latin American seminar has been designed to
interest teachers, businessmen who might be contemplating markets in Latin America, as well as interested
alumni and members of the general public.
Moreover, it is hoped that the knowledge and opinions of academics, members of the Diplomatic Corps
and distinguished civil servants will enable the public
to understand the problems affecting Canada's relations
with the Latin American states and to follow, with
greater understanding, events in Latin America.
22 America
First International House
Summer Seminar
We are delighted that many of the outstanding
speakers who will lead the Public Affairs Seminar on
Latin America will be staying on for the week-end to
help establish a new UBC tradition: the Annual International House Summer Seminar.
A foreign student in Graduate Studies sparked the
idea. It was soon developed by a round-table of faculty,
board members from International House, and representatives of internationally-minded campus groups, including the Alumni Association.
It is anticipated that up to one hundred people will
attend, including faculty, Canadian and foreign students from winter and summer sessions, and members
of the community, both alumni and friends of International House.
The idea of holding the seminar in a residential
camp-setting was suggested. An opportunity for conferees to devote themselves to study and discussion,
freed from the usual distractions and in pleasant outdoor surroundings, was very appealing to the planners.
For July 5-7 we find residential camp-sites at a
premium and may therefore hold our seminar this year
on our own home ground at International House. As
more and more foreign students come to UBC for
advanced study we find a rich international resource
here on our doorstep.
The International House Summer Seminar is a
special avenue of continuing education capitalizing on
these resources and providing a much sought opportunity for foreign students to share ideas with Canadians, and particularly University alumni.
The registration fee will be nominal, partly covered
by a tie-in with the Public Affairs Seminar, as two of
its evening sessions are particularly pertinent to our
programme. These are the Wednesday and Thursday
evening panels, on power and revolution, and on the
economic potential in Latin America.
The first two major sessions of the week-end seminar
will deal with revolution in Latin America, historically,
economically and politically. Following upon general
discussion, there will be a panel on the future of Latin
America. The third phase of the study will be directed
to consideration of the cultural implications of increasing understanding among the Americas.
The major speakers will be the leading participants
in the Public Affairs Seminar. Under this outstanding
leadership our aim is to draw together the many disciplines and cultural backgrounds represented in our
University and greater Vancouver communities. The
first International House Summer Seminar promises to
provide a stimulating venture in international understanding.
Alumni will note that the sessions of the Seminar on
Public Affairs will take place in the late afternoon and
early evening in order to facilitate their attendance.
Brochures describing the programme are available from
the Summer School on Public Affairs, Department of
University Extension or by telephoning the director
at 224-1111, local 715. For further information on
International House Summer Seminar telephone International House.

23 Excerpts from Dr. Northrop Frye's
Congregation address on May 31
to graduates in the arts and sciences
students of primitive societies tell us
how important is the rite de passage, the
social ritual marking the transition from
one phase of life to another . . . These
same students tell us further that in rites
of passage there are always at least two
elements involved, one of separation
from a past phase of life, and one of incorporation into a future one. The separation part of this rite is simple enough:
What you're incorporated into is less
easy to see. It's customary to say that
you're going out into the world, but if
you're not in the world now you never
will be. You're bound to feel, quite
rightly, that there is much more to this
business of being graduated than merely
ceasing to be where you've been. . . .
Here you've been attached to a University with a capital U, a specific institution that gives specfic degrees. But
people who may not know you've been
here will speak of you as having been
"to university," with a small u. That
means something more: it means a certain way of life that you've been in contact with, and would have been at any
university. As you leave the University
of British Columbia, what you are being
invited to join is the lowercase university,
the university of the world, as I should
call it, which represents the social values
that this institution exists for. . . .
Some time ago [I was asked]: should
we devote our main educational efforts
to producing a managerial or intellectual
elite? My answer was that if society demands an elite of this kind, the universities will produce it; they must produce
what society thinks it has to have. Many
of our important people are university
graduates and it is no doubt legitimate
enough for a University to point with
pride to the important people who hold
its degree. But the real elite, the really
best people, are an invisible group, and
nobody except God knows who they all
are. Some of them have influential places
in society, but most of them are diffused
through and dissolved in that society, like
the salt to which lesus compared his
disciples. They include the quiet self-
effacing people who are busy teaching
school or fixing teeth or saving money to
send their own children to university,
who sit through endless dull committee
and board meetings because it's a public
service to do so: in short, the people
who devote as much of their lives as
possible to keeping up the standard of
culture and civilization, both for themselves and for their communities. They
would include a teacher of French I
know in a small town in this province,
who bought herself a couple of cats in
order to have somebody to talk French
to in this allegedly bi-lingual country.
They certainly include the members of
this staff, who, like nearly everybody else
in a Canadian university, are maintaining standards of scholarship at a weary
distance from the nearest research
So far as it is a teaching institution,
the University exists primarily to recruit
people from the bigger lower-case university of the world. At the same time a
good many people come into the university of the world with very little formal
education, and among those who have
the education there is a heavy drop-out.
The reason is that when you move from
one to the other, you move from one
kind of knowledge to an entirely different kind. Here you're exposed to knowledge about things, which is very easy
to acquire, as is obvious from the number of people in front of me, and very
easy to lose. It's what you produced on
examinations last week, and will start
forgetting next week. Knowledge about
things is mainly intellectual, and it demands a good memory and a sense of
detachment. Its great virtue is objectivity, the ability to see things as they are,
preferably on both sides. What you transfer to the university of the world is not
this, but knowledge of things. Knowledge
of things is really your vision of society,
and is part of what you are. It is engaged and committed, not detached: it
demands moral qualities, like courage,
and holding it is a constant test of character. To join the university of the world
it is not enough merely to do one's job
and mind one's own business. To maintain the standards of culture is a fight,
and a fight with enemies. It doesn't take
long to discover who the enemies are:
they are the people whose vision of
society is that of a mob, who are dedicated to hysteria, slander, persecution
and hatred. In some places the enemy
has become so strong that the university
of the world has been actually destroyed
or driven underground. The institutions
called Universities are still there: they
still teach arts and science and train for
professions and grant degrees, but their
degrees are no good any more, because
the essential social reason for producing
them no longer exists. . . .
Most of us today feel that man's original state is not to be understood by his
past, but by his present and his future,
just  as  the original  state  of the  acorn
is not the pellet in the ground, but the
oak tree it is trying to become. If you
find this hard to understand, you need to
develop your imagination, preferably by
reading literature, and you can learn a
great deal about it from your own British
Columbia literature. If you read, or reread, the second story in Ethel Wilson's
Equations of Love, "Lily's Story", you
will read a very simple account of how
a girl puts up a gallant fight for herself
and her child against her own background. Its meaning is less simple: its
meaning is that a person's real character
is revealed, not by what he has been or
done, but by what he is trying to make
of himself at any given moment. Next,
I suggest you read Earle Birney's radio
play, Trial of a City. Here the annihilation of Vancouver has been decided upon
by some mysterious tribunal, and everyone who appears to defend the city shows
that there is no reason in the world why
this should not be done. Fortunately not
all the reasons are in the world. The
point is that man can always be condemned by his own past. What we have
done becomes, forever, the property of
the accuser of mankind, and as long as
we assume that the future consists only
of the logical consequences of the past,
we can look forward to nothing but disaster.
This brings us, of course, to the chief
preoccupation of our time, the apocalyptic explosion. We have certain mechanisms set up that, in a few minutes, can
kill half the human race and destroy the
value of living for the other half. And
yet, others say, if we don't set this bomb
off, we shall have a population explosion,
where the world will become so crowded
that having a large chest expansion will
constitute an act of aggression. Shall we
suffocate with life or with death? It is
merely ignorant to imagine that this
problem is original with us, and the
answer to it is in the Book of Deuteronomy. "Behold, I have set before you
today life and death; therefore choose
life." The "therefore" is inserted not because it is logical, but precisely because
it is illogical, the irrational choice that
refuses to face the consequences of one's
actions. . . .
I have spoken of what you are about
to be incorporated into, but this is a rite
of separation too. I think there is an impressive significance in the fact that, of
all institutions, the University is the only
one that requires you to leave it ... It
dismisses you, because, while its reality
is mainly in the past, it knows that your
reality is always in the future, always
beginning in the present moment . . .
Like a Spartan mother, it sends you out
to stand or fall by the power and skill
it has tried to give you; it is not careless
about your fate, merely careful of your

Director's Diary
Dear Diary: During the post-exam doldrums that have just about come to an
end, and are to be abruptly ended with
the onrush of Summer School students,
we've had time to reflect on recent
alumni activities—local  and world-wide.
Chicago—Mrs. Richard H. Thompson
(Mary Margaret Leeson) hosted the first
Chicago alumni branch meeting last
April 3rd. There was a good turnout of
alumni to hear guest speaker, Dr. Bill
Gibson of UBC, and Mary reports, "I
could see the old spirit returning to our
alumni eyes as Dr. Gibson outlined the
future plans for our Alma Mater."
Ottawa—Sixty UBC grads gathered at
Ottawa on April 2nd to hear Dr. George
F. Davidson speak on the Glassco Commission Report. Dr. Davidson was introduced by Ted Jackson, president of the
Ottawa alumni chapter, and thanked by
Wilson McDuffee, branch vice-president.
Manila, Philippines — UBC was officially represented by Joaquin O. Sio-
pongco, BSCE(Madua Inst. Tech.), MASc
'62, at the inauguration of Dr. Carlos P.
Romulo as the ninth President of the
University of the Philippines, on April
5th, when Mr. Siopongco presented to
Dr. Romulo the official greeting on behalf of UBC. Tokyo — Mrs. Yuriko
Moriya, BA'36, writes us that she has recently been elected the first president of
the Canadian University Club, and that
they would appreciate hearing of any graduates that may be travelling between
the two countries. Madison, Wisconsin
—Peter Krosby gathered the faithful
UBC alumni together last April 4th to
hear Dr. Bill Gibson speak on new developments at UBC in higher education
and reports that it was a successful
meeting. Yellow Point, Vancouver
Island—alumni gathered here for the
second annual meeting of the Vancouver
Island University Association. The guest
speaker was Dean John F. McCreary,
Dean of UBC's Faculty of Medicine, who
spoke about the Macdonald Report and
the newly planned University Hospital.
At this meeting Jack Caldwell, LLB'48,
from Campbell River, was elected president. Toronto—graduates from all western Canadian universities held a gala
evening at the 28th Annual Universities
of Western Canada Alumni Dance held
on March 9th last at the Royal York
Hotel. Toronto branch president, John
Ridington, headed up the local arrangements on behalf of UBC. Parksville,
Vancouver Island—several alumni delegates joined with students and faculty at
the annual week-end Academic Symposium held February 15, 16 and 17 to
discuss  the   problems   of  the   university
world and society generally. Any alums
interested in attending the next Academic
Symposium should contact the Alumni
office. Summerland—Dr. James Miltimore. BSA'48, was elected president of
the Summerland alumni branch at a
meeting held here on February 21st.
Their new secretary-treasurer, Mrs. Patricia Carter, also reports that a drive for
new members in the area is currently
being carried on. Victoria — the first
joint meeting of the new Founders of
Convocation of the University of Victoria and alumni in the Victoria area
was held on the new Gordon Head campus on May 17th. Bob Gray continues
as president of the branch for another
year, backed up by a high-powered executive. After the business meeting, Willard Ireland gave a most stimulating
address entitled "Victoria College —
Castle to Campus." Lillooet—Harold
E. Stathers, BSP'53, has taken over as
branch contact for the area, replacing
Ian Cameron, who has been transferred
to Vancouver. United Kingdom — UBC
grads in the London area may have their
first opportunity to meet the Chancellor
and our new President, when Dr. Ross
and Dr. John B. Macdonald will be in
London to attend the Commonwealth
Universities Congress, being held from
July 15th to July 19th. Dr. Norman
A. M. MacKenzie, President Emeritus,
will also be there. Watch for further
details in your mail.
Jet flight
Plans are now well under way for the
first UBC Alumni Association jet charter
flight next winter to the Winter Olympics
in Austria. My spies tell me that the jet
leaves Vancouver on January 24, 1964,
returns on February 15th, and will cost
only $385 return. Skiers, hockey players
and other travelling enthusiasts should
contact the Alumni office. 224-4366, Mr.
Herman Freydenland at MU 4-2177, or
Mr. Russell V. Stanton at 581-5288 for
further details.
Jobs, anyone?
UBC's Personnel office tell us that
they have over 2,000 students listed for
all types of summer employment, and
that a simple call to them will start a
student on his (or her) way to you, and
help the students out as well. Austerity!
Working committees
Our new Alumni president, Paul Plant,
has set up a new system of working
alumni committees for the coming year.
The call is- now out for any volunteers.
If interested, please get in touch with
the Alumni office by phone or letter.
Dean MacPhee honoured
Commerce graduates gathered to pay
respects to Dean and Mrs. E. D. MacPhee for their service to the University
and in particular, the Commerce Faculty
and business community.
Dean MacPhee is retiring as Dean of
Financial and Administrative Affairs this
The gathering was held in the University Club on the evening of May 23rd.
Ken Martin, Commerce division chairman, presented the Dean with a large
bound collection of letters of tribute
from Commerce graduates on the
graduates' firm's letterhead.
Committee for arrangements for the
reception was chaired by Roy Dixon, a
former student of Dean MacPhee.
Dean MacPhee came to UBC in 1950
as director of the then School of Commerce and honorary bursar for LIBC. In
1956 the school was made a faculty and
he was appointed the first dean. After
retiring as dean of the faculty in 1960,
he became the first Dean of Financial
and Administrative Affairs.
Memo from AAG
One thousand grads have supported
AAG 1963 by contributing over $20,000
to date. The average gift has been more
than $20. We have therefore a 15%
increase in average gift, a 300% increase in the number of donors and a
400% increase in dollars given. This is
a most encouraging start for this year.
To those 1.000 grads we say thank you
for the challenge and support.
(This space is reserved for a report
to be written by the other 23,000
grads of UBC. Please help us fill
it soon.)

The UBC Alumni Association this year
completed a two-year programme of
organizing and assisting at regional conferences in the more thickly populated
areas of British Columbia. The climax
came recently when five Regional Conferences on Higher Education were held
in a two-month period.
The conferences dealt with the broad
aspects of higher education in this
province, the Macdonald Report, technical and vocational education, and particular regional problems. Many experts

Over 500 people attended an exciting
Conference on March 9th, featuring the
new UBC President, Dr. John B. Macdonald as the keynote speaker. Excerpts
from his speech are printed elsewhere in
this section of the magazine.
The morning panel comprising the
faculty members who had assisted in the
writing of the Macdonald Report dealt
in some detail with the Report and
answered many questions, both after the
panel, and during an open question
period following lunch. During the afternoon an open session in the form of a
panel entitled "Design for Action" was
held. At the conclusion of the Conference
a resolution was passed endorsing concerted action by all areas in the Okanagan-Mainline region in applying for a
regional junior college.

On March 23rd, Dean S. N. F. Chant
delivered the opening address at a regional conference with the theme "After
Grade XII, What?" After a morning
panel on the Macdonald Report, and
luncheon,   an   afternoon   panel   explored
the resources of post-high school institutions available to the people of B.C.
Following a series of discussion groups,
the Rev. Newton Steacy summarized the
At the Conference banquet in the
evening, Dr. W. H. Johns, President of
the University of Alberta, spoke on the
topic "A National Programme for Higher
Education in Canada."
The first Conference on Higher
Education in the East Kootenay region
on April 20th brought people together
from Golden through to Creston. This
Conference also covered the wide spectrum of post-high school facilities, and
formally endorsed at its conclusion the
formation of an East Kootenay University Association to continue to work
for the establishment of a regional
college in that region.
Dean David M. Myers, Dean of the
Faculty of Applied Science at UBC,
lead the delegation from UBC. Dean
Goard of the Vancouver School Board
was also one of the featured speakers,
and his exposition of the vocational
training programme attracted a great deal
of interest at the Conference.
The Burnaby School Board sponsored
a similar type of Conference on May 4th
at the Vincent Massey junior high school.
The programme featured the new chancellor of Simon Fraser University, Dr.
Gordon Shrum, and Dr. J. B. Macdonald,
President of UBC. This was the first
public conference of its type to be held
in the Metropolitan Vancouver area,
and drew much attention, particularly
with regard to the location of the
proposed Simon Fraser University.
Citizens of the West Kootenay area
gathered last May 11th to debate and
discuss their problems of higher education. The Conference theme was "The
Macdonald Report and a Kootenay College." After a keynote address by Dr.
John B. Macdonald entitled "The Aims
of Higher Education in British Columbia," a morning panel discussed "The
Role of a Junior College."
This Conference featured Dr. Macdonald, of UBC, and two college
administrators, Dr. R. K. Berg, President
of Everett Junior College, and Dean W.
J. Cousins, of the Lethbridge Junior
Discussion during the afternoon was
devoted to the problems of establishing
a regional Kootenay College, and featured expert speakers from different
academic settings in B.C. At the conclusion of the Conference a formal resolution was passed urging the speedy
implementation of the recommendation
for a Kootenay college under the combined leadership of the School Boards in
the area.
With Northern B.C. and the Peace
River region the only areas left uncovered, the case for higher education
now rests with the jury—the people of
this Province, who in the end will decide
exactly what kind of system of higher
education they will enjoy.
26 Kelowna Conference
Higher Education
Five hundred Okanagan - Mainliners
gave the President of the University of
British Columbia a standing ovation
when he addressed them at the second
Okanagan-Mainline Regional Conference
held on Saturday, March 9th, in the
Kelowna high school.
Dr. Macdonald sketched the broad
outlines of the needs and problems of
higher education. Following are excerpts
from his speech:
"In the past we have not succeeded in
persuading either our citizens or our
governments that we must support education at the level which is required in
this changing world of the twentieth
century. Yet education is the major key
to the progress of mankind and to the
preservation of those rights and privileges which we believe should be shared
by all men. . .
"The days are rapidly disappearing
when the man with little formal training
can make an appreciable contribution
to our national strength. Muscle power
has been almost totally replaced by the
machine. But what is of more importance
and  direct  interest  to  the  individual  is

that in this world of the twentieth century he must be so educated and his
mind so trained that he is able to live
with some measure of mental ease and
spirtual ease. . .
"The persons who will make the
greatest contribution to society will be
those educated to the limits of their
capacity and talents by the very best
kinds of educational institutions we can
finance and staff. Human resources are
our most important assets. . .
"In Canada more is needed by way of
educational facilities at the level of college and universities in the next seven or
eight years than we have been able to
accomplish since Confederation. . .
"You have decisions to make here in
the Okanagan Valley, and they are your
decisions—they are not my decisions,
they are not the University of British
Columbia's decisions, and they are not
the Provincial Government's decisions. . .
It is up to you to decide what you want.
It is your responsibility, and you must
choose your own opportunity and decide what kind of growth you want in
your Valley. . .
"The very sobering facts of where we
stand in this world are before us and
the tasks that are facing us are monumental. They will not disappear by ignoring them—they are urgent tasks. We are
faced with a national emergency with
respect to education, and whether we
win or lose as a nation is going to be
determined largely by how effectively we
face the tasks ahead of us in the field of
education. . .
"Can we make the decisions about the
support of higher education that are
needed now for our welfare, our economy, our fair participation in a world
of revolution, and our survival? I believe we can—I believe we must. . ."
27 Homecoming 1963: Chairman chosen, plans laid
Many classmates will renew college day
acquaintances when they reunite at
Homecoming this fall. The class of '18
is the senior class this year. Their reunion is being planned by Magistrate
Lome Jackson.
Joe Brown, Aubrey Roberts, and a
committee of classmates are busy planning a big day for their class of '23. Dr.
Douglas Telford and his committee, who
planned the class of '28 reunion five
years ago, have agreed to do it again.
Harold Moorehead is in contact with
1933 class president, Vic Rogers, for
his thoughts on the class of '33 reunion.
Paul Paine will plan the '38 reunion, and
Mrs. J. A. Findlay, (Honoree Young),
has consented to organize for the '43
class,  whose  members  have  been  away
20 short years. Rod Lindsay has plans
for the class of '48, while the first reunion for the class of '53 will be directed
by Art Phillips.
All in all, it sounds like fun, if your
year of graduation ends in -8 or -3.
That is, except for the class of '58.
They're too young for this type of party!
For those not attending reunions and
as a plus for the reunion classes,
Homecoming chairman Bill Rodgers is
planning many innovations and surprises.
Di Wong, luncheon chairman, has several
original ideas for her barbecue luncheon.
Dick Archambault has big surprises in
store for the Alumni Ball on Saturday.
Margaret Hayward hopes to present
some outstanding lectures. Plus! Plus!

All about the Chronicle
The Chronicle's editorial committee,
under Cec Hacker, recently proposed and
had accepted by the Alumni Association's Board of Management, a statement
of policy concerning the UBC Alumni
This statement listed four principal
objectives for the Association in publishing this magazine. These were: to
maintain contact between the Association, the University and the graduates;
to make the graduate body aware of
the achievements of UBC and of the
problems it may be expected to face in
the future; to adequately inform graduates of the gravity of the whole problem of the development of higher education facilities in B.C., and to inform
them of what our Association is trying
to do about such matters; and to stimulate graduates themselves to participate
in Alumni Association activities.
For our magazine features, the Committee has adopted what has become
known as the Nicol Law, named after its
author, Eric Nicol: features must be
bright, interesting and may be opinionated. They must be relevant to UBC,
feature a UBC graduate or concern the
subject of higher education. Preferably,
they should contain news that cannot be
found elsewhere.
The Editorial Committee suggested in
their policy statement that the Chronicle
should go to all graduates as soon as the
financial resources of the Association
permit. Presently, the magazine's circulation, which exceeds the very respectable
figure of 10,000 copies, is sent primarily
to donors of Alumni Annual Giving of
recent years. Almost half of the recipients live in greater Vancouver, and almost three-quarters of them live in
British Columbia.
The Chronicle is an excellent medium
for reaching a better-than-average income market—university graduates. Our
readers include influential people in
business, government, and education. We
suggest that you should sell your products, services and yourself to your
fellow alumni.
The Editorial Committee would like to
thank those people and firms who do
advertise in the Chronicle. Only through
their support are we able to put out a
magazine of which we can be proud.

12V2 acres (some of which she cleared herself) and sells her vegetables in a roadside

but a woman farming on her own will benefit from all the knowledge she can
acquire. Miss McMullan's inquiring mind leads her to invention, too. She found an
abandoned washing machine, fitted it with brushes, and now uses it to wash her
vegetables for market.

News Is Where You Find It,
Including Right Here
AN ENGLISH writer of respectable stature recently pointed
out that the big events of today's world are known almost
instantly by everyman almost everywhere, but that the news
of his own neighbors and neighborhood tends to reach him,
if at all, slowly and incompletely. Well, he has a point, but
one that readers of The Sun might challenge. The Sun not only
has full coverage of world happenings by global press services
and staff correspondents but also a wide-ranging and on-the-
mark news gathering organization right in its own back yard.
It's pretty hard for anything to happen in Vancouver or
British Columbia without the story landing in our next edition.

storey permanent home, with residence facilities for 300 men and tutorial, dining and
social areas for 1200 students of both sexes.
Dr. Ivey, 41, was born in Clanwilliam, Manitoba, but spent most of his youth on
the west coast. He joined the University of Toronto after receiving his PhD in 1949.
Dr. Ivey is one of Canada's few physicists specializing in the study of polymers—
that is, rubber and other substances composed of long-chain molecules. He is a
member of the National Research Council's associate committee on high polymer
As a scientist he has some astringent observations on popular attitudes towards
his field. "People don't appreciate the limitations of science," he said recently.
"One reason is that so much of what we see as science simply is not. We are constantly exposed to men in white coats doing everything—from launching a rocket to
praising a commercial product.
"I'm also worried that the public seems to accept one scientist's statement on
non-scientific issues as representing the opinions of all scientists. In fact, we don't
always agree even on scientific matters.
"Science isn't a mystery or magic. It is an intellectual activity carried out by man,
and not by nature. Even the so-called laws of nature are nothing but laws about
nature concocted by men who knew all the time that they were producing nothing
but approximations.
"The only way people can learn more about science is through exposure to it.
That's one of the principal reasons for our television programmes—simply to let
people hear scientists talking about science."

hands with young King Hussein of Jordan, at an Army Day celebration during the Wiggins' stay in Amman. Jordan's prime minister at the
time, Majali, is standing to King's right. Majali is no longer prime

Murray Wiggins, BSA'48, MS(Utah State Agric. Coll.). left in April to spend the
next two years in French Guinea on a new irrigation scheme. His wife and 5-year
old daughter will join him in the fall. Mr. Wiggins is an agricultural specialist in
the agricultural development department of Harza Engineering Company, a Chicago
firm of consulting engineers for river projects.
Mr. Wiggins returned this spring from lordan, where he has been since 1959 as
irrigation agronomist for the same company on an irrigation project in the lordan
Valley. The ultimate aim of the project is to raise the standard of living for the
small farmer as well as increase the national income of the country. The scheme is
at present financed jointly by the Government of Jordan and the United States
Agency for International Development.
The ground elevation of the area varies from 200 metres below sea level in the
North to 400 meters below sea level in the South. Stage 1 of the project which cost
nearly $12 million, will be completed in September of this year, with 30,000 acres
under irrigation. As resident irrigation agronomist in Amman, Mr. Wiggins headed
up the farm development section of the East Ghor Canal Authority. In this
capacity he was responsible for initiating the drainage programme, for the development of irrigation criteria used in design and layout of farm units, and for the soil
investigation in conjunction with salinity, land re-classification and farm development
programmes. His section trained Jordanians in modern irrigation farming techniques
and in the efficient operation and management of the project. The land under full
irrigation will be able to grow tomatoes, eggplant, melons, cucumbers, citrus, bananas,
wheat, corn and alfalfa.

35 Henry Zitko, BASc'49, research engineer at B.C. Research Council, has developed
a twelve-volt D.C. vacuum cleaner that will be on the market this summer. The
cleaner is designed to plug into a standard automobile cigarette lighter receptacle
and uses about the same power as the headlights. Unlike other cleaners using battery
power the performance of this model is impressive. It readily picks up the sand and
pea-sized gravel which is commonly found on car floors and which is so awkward
to remove otherwise in the new drop-floor cars. The hose and cord are easily
detached and stored inside the attractive plastic case. In addition to cleaning cars,
this cleaner is expected to be used by outdoor-types for cleaning boats, tents and for
inflating all kinds of low-pressure pneumatic goods.
