THE U.B.C. ALUMNI CHRONICLE LETTERS  TO  THE   EDITOR
2301 Rosemont Place,
Seattle 99, Washington
Editor, The U.B.C. Alumni Chronicle:
Move over Brit Brock and let another "trekker''
have his say about this silly business of American
football at U.B.C.
I, too, was jolted two years ago when, after
several years' absence, I returned to find U.B.C.
students playing "at" a game which, on this side of
the line, has become a caricature of all that the
word "sport" implies.
And before someone dismisses me as just another nostalgic and moribund "old grad", permit
me to refer to two recent articles in two American
magazines. They are: "Too Much Football", by
Allen Jackson in the October issue of The Atlantic,
and "No More Football for Us", by Father Guthrie
of Georgetown University in the October 13 issue
of The Saturday Evening Post.
The substance of these articles squares entirely
with my observation over the years of American
football as it is organized and "played" by universities in the United States.
Is there not some significance in the fact that
the new Athletic Director (I wish him well) comes
to U.B.C. from a college which is one of a growing
number that has abandoned inter-collegiate football?
I have yet to meet a member of faculty over
here, or for that matter, even a sports writer who
did not sneer at the "amateur" aspect of a business
which has become so big as even to defy control by
college administrations.
I also learn from the same issue of The Chronicle
that already there is a "Quarterback Club." Is it
composed of graduates still in the Rah! Rah! stage,
as is so often the case in this country? I learn, too,
that the team eats at a special "training table." No
doubt the next step will be "under the counter"
handouts, or open bribes laughingly called athletic
scholarships, pressure on the faculty to go slow on
the beefy imports, adoption of the two-platoon system and the spectacle of one player getting into the
game only when the kick for a point is called for.
Then U.B.C. can proceed toward bigger and better
stadiums, fire its coaches when games are lost, encourage its players to "take-out" the stars on the
other team and, in general, provide a Roman holiday for the howling citizens who at $4 a seat are
entitled to see broken bones.
And just in case I am accused of exaggeration, I
enclose a clipping from today's issue of The Seattle
Times. Read what George Varnell, dean of football
writers in these parts and a life-long booster for the
game, has to say about "rough and deliberately
illegal play" in this year's Pacific Coast Conference
and elsewhere.
In my considered opinion, there is nothing in
the American game for student or player that can
compare with the advantages offered by Rugby.

*jror the l^ecord . . .
The Chronicle pointed out editorially in the last
issue what a boon the University is to the Community and how little most of us know of the many
services U.B.C. provides to the citizens of this province . . . we hate to harp on this subject but the
more one investigates the more one realizes the
importance of our Alma Mater ... an excellent
story by Ernie Perrault appears on pages 6 and 7
of this issue on the Summer School program of the
University Extension Department and we commend
it to you for interesting and valuable reading.
David Brock is back in this issue with another
chapter in "U.B.C. in 1992", on pages 8 and 9 . . .
do you recognize the four freshmen in the photograph?
Geography, which most of us study in high
school, but promptly forgot about in University, is
developing into one of the more valuable courses
now being given at U.B.C. and J. Lewis Robinson
describes its scope and the work of some of the
Geography graduates on page 12.
The University learned with sorrow this spring
of the death of G. L. "Pat" Fraser, Barrister, who
died suddenly whilst holidaying in California. He
was one of the early graduates of U.B.C. who went
into law and made an outstanding name for himself.
The Athletic picture at U.B.C. has been under
fire for some time and the recent resolutions of the
University Senate set out on page 18 will be of
interest to the sports-minded graduate . . . The
quiet, efficient work of "Bob" Osborne can be traced
in the development of our Athletic policy on the
campus.
The Canadian Bar Association is one of the
many organizations holding part of their Conventions on the campus this year and some of the interesting agenda is being directly held at the Law-
School . . . Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent is
opening the new Law School and making the principal address at Fall Convocation the first week in
September.
The Chronicle has long been published by the
consistent help of a few generous writers and contributors . . . but with their own circle of interest
. . . and we of the staff would like very much for
all graduates who can write or advise of interesting
doings of graduates to help widen the appeal of the
magazine . . . therefore, please send in articles or
items that may be of interest . . . we particularly
appeal to out of town graduates and members of
the University Faculty . . . we can use your poems
and articles . . . you are the life of the Association
which the Chronicle tries to represent.

Page 5 From the Ivy Vine
By E. G. Perrault
It's holiday time again ! The winter clouds have
rolled back; the sky has turned blue; and the boulevards have taken on the green, well-tailored appearance of a town in the throes of summer. Hundreds,
and probably thousands of people are suddenly
aware that they are in need of a change. The job is
losing its savour, and even the most patient of secretaries are unable to cope with the changing moods
of their bosses. Eleven months of high pressure
work have chained people to desks and machines;
a thousand routine tasks have left the population
physically jaded, and it is quite possible that many
of us, at the very moment we need a holiday, are so
dulled by the routine of work that our imaginations
are of no practical use. We are unable to make
plans.
Remember what happened last year because you
didn't plan? Suddenly there was only a week to go
before the office staff bade you au revoir. You went
to a resort recommended by a friend of a friend of
the family's and "put in time" among strangers. If
you were lucky you met kindred souls ; if not you
had to content yourself with your books, your fishing rod and indifferent companionship.
Suppose that you had six weeks to look forward
to. What a task would be involved in planning the
details of forty-two days of leisure time! You may
be one of those unfortunates who rates only a few
days of holiday this year, but whether you have two
months or two days of free time this summer there
is a scheme afoot out at Point Grey that may be
just what the Doctor ordered.
The University of British Columbia has, for some
years now, offered a "holiday with a difference". If
spectacular natural surroundings is a requisite for
the holiday seeker then the campus would suit the
most fastidious. You remember how it is—the University is set like a green and granite gem in a cup
of evergreens. There are sandy beaches within easy
walking distance, rose gardens, totem parks, a score
of fascinating activities, and a collection of men and
women, old and young, with a common purpose—
to give their minds and their bodies a complete rest
and a complete change. According to the modern
psychiatrist (and he sees eye to eye with the ancient
philosophers on this point) it is part of man's nature
not just to regard beauty but to try and create
beauty himself. No man is without this natural
drive, although many are discontented or down
right unhappy because they can find no outlet for
it, particularly in this age when machines eliminate
the need to create. A holiday, to be ideal, should
stimulate the mind as well as the body, the mind
before the body actually since the body is the instrument of the mind.
SUMMER COURSES
The University has taken these things into account in shaping its program of special summer
courses. As in the past, holidayers young and old
will come to the University for a few hours each
day over a six-week period to study and practice
various skills and arts. Some of them will take advantage of the early evening courses, arriving after
work, and eating a sandwich supper down at the
beach or on the lawns of the campus.
Instructors have been gathered in from all points
of the compass. Their experience is exciting, and
their personalities are stimulating; there's Nicholas
Goldschmidt, Conductor of CBC's Opera Company
and Musical Director of the Opera School of the
Royal Conservatory of Music. His Opera Festival
in Toronto, his national broadcasts of such operas
as "Carmen", "Peter Grimes", and "The Bartered
Bride" have made Canadians realize they are capable of producing their own fine opera.
Then there's Leonard Brooks, member of the
Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and of the California Water Colour Society.   At present teaching

at the Fine Arts School of San Miguel de Allende in
Mexico, his paintings have been exhibited in
Europe, England, the United States and Canada.
Reva Brooks, Mrs. Leonard Brooks, will be in
charge of the course in Creative Photography. Her
moving and objective photography has been praised
by such artists as David Alfaro Siqueiros and
Edward Weston, and she is represented in the permanent photography collection of the Museum of
Modern Art in New York.
Edith Heath is another of the artists whose work
is represented in a permanent collection in the
Museum of Modern Art. She is considered the
United States' leading artist-potter; not only that,
she conducts. a successful studio-factory in San
Francisco and her wares are on display in all the
leading art shops in the States.
Hal Painter will also be coming to the campus
from the United States. He is one of the eminent
young weavers in the San Francisco Bay area and
the owner of a progressive textile studio.
In charge of the elementary course in Creative
Weaving will be Mrs. Helen Ellis, one of the best-
known of B.C.'s weavers and teachers, who has
taught in previous summer sessions and at the
Youth training School at Acadia  Camp.
Hilda Ross will give the course in Elementary
Pottery. In addition to being a designer for the
Cottage Pottery, Pennsylvania, she is one of the
Vancouver artists who have helped the University
to develop its work in ceramics.
Cliff Robinson, who is in charge of all work in
art and handicrafts for the Department of University Extension, will be busy teaching two courses,
Creative Painting for Beginners and Batik Fabric
Decoration. A member of the Canadian Society of
Painter-Etchers and Engravers and of the Canadian
Society of Graphic Arts, he has exhibited in major
Canadian and American cities.
Finally we come to the Summer School of the
Theatre. Dorothy Somerset, its Director and Assistant Professor of Dramatics in the Department of
English, will be joined again this year by Sydney
Risk, formerly Head of the Drama Department of
the University of Alberta and founder and Director
of the Everyman Theatre; with them once again
will be Jessie Richardson, actress, theatre organizer
and distinguished costume designer and mistress all
in one. The exciting thing about this year's staff,
and testifying to the growing maturity of the
theatre in this country, is the fact that it is all-
Canadian.    The   staff   will   include   three   highlv-

Here then is the blueprint for a holiday with a
difference—one where the surroundings are beautiful beyond compare, where the mind and the body
relax and refresh themselves in a series of stimulating experiences, where your chance of meeting
kindred souls and making lasting friendships is excellent. Perhaps you don't have to go out of town
this year after all. Perhaps the answer to your holiday problem lies out on the forested and flower-
bright campus of the University of British Columbia. The first of the courses will start on June 2nd
and the University' Department of Extension can
give you all the information you need.
And if the summer program at U.B.C, for some
reason, is out of your ken then don't forget the

Page 7 IN   THE   DARK   FRONTWARD   AND
By David Brock
In the last issue I was good enough to tell you
about the time I went to U.B.C. in 1992, Forty
Years On. Yes, and I drew you a picture, too, and
a reader complained it wasn't so good as Osbert
Lancaster. It wasn't meant to be good; it was
meant to be horrible. Osbert is an irresponsible
bloke who enjoys himself and encourages others to
do likewise (at an advertised price . . . pay no
more). You can tell by his prose that he enjoys
his own affectations, and you can tell by the people
who reverence him that they enjoy theirs. While
mocking architecture that sets itself up as something, he sets himself up as something, too (though
he didn't at first). This isn't like old Brocky at
all, and our reader was quite right to note the difference. Far from setting myself up, I always set
myself down, bang! The Royal Bumps, self-
administered.
Well. I shall now set myself down at U.B.C. in
1992 again. Permit me to report further about this
unusual expedition. T was 82 at the time. But my
faculties were keen. Yes. and my faculties were not
only keen but clean. Which is more than I can say
of many faculties I could name. Faculties which
used, in the bad old days, to encourage young
women to read D. H. Lawrence and then charge
their  parents  money  for  this  advice.
FOUR FRESHMEN OF 1992
They a/re studying Lama ism, a new Faculty of
World Tolerance. The course consists of saying
"Om mane pad me hum" over and over again. They
say it means, "Paddling along to the Old Men's
Home".
STUDENTS  DF 1992
Happily, the younger students of 1992 were unable to read at all. so they didn't fall under the
influence of Lawrence or anyone else in print, except possibly the author of what was then called A
Tragic Strip, about an ex-cowboy named Creep-
along Cassidy, who lived in the Old Men's Home.
All instruction was what was then called "visual."
This word implied that ordinary books had become
invisible. Only pictures were apparent to the naked
eye of youth. Since nobody was willing to get out
a Classic Tragics version of D. H. Lawrence, and
the National Film Board ran into insuperable snags
in attempting to shoot an educational version of
Lady Chatterley's autobiology (stet), life was made
that much simpler for the simple, And for the not-
so-simple also.
Incidentally, the time has come to divulge a
little story about D. H. Lawrence which seems the
final criticism of that writer of textbooks. A Vancouver judge met Lawrence in the flesh. When I
say flesh. I mean just that. D.H. was called D.H.
to distinguish him from Saint Lawrence, who was
not so apt to be mistaken for a concupiscent rabbit.

Vancouver. B. C.
On his return to B.C., the judge was asked, by
some little snob or other, what he thought of his
godlike new acquaintance. "Oh," said My Lord,
"he didn't impress me as anything outside my
normal work. I mean, T send chaps like that to the
penitentiary almost every day."
Well, as I say, the smaller freshmen had lost the
gift of literacy. Partly because of reading too many
books about Spot and Puff and Dick and Jane in
the junior grades, and partly because their high
school teachers wanted them to shine in the photography class and the gym class and the salad-
making class . . . classes which made them Good
Citizens and taught them to Think for Themselves.
If people in the Middle Ages read books, then books
were damned. So the kids took to pictures, and
were encouraged by the Film Board, the P.-T.A.
and the authors of new "visual" textbooks. Also
by Life magazine. Mind vou, thev could spell
T-H-E B-A-D C-A-T S-A-f O-N T-H-R M-A-T.
But while spelling it, they rightly felt this had no
connection with reality, so their subconscious
usually made them spell it wrong as a protest.
The English Department gave up any attempt
at instructing these good citizens. At first, certain
professors of English, full of curiosity, began to
devise quizzes, to see what was going on in the
high school mind so high, so high. And these
General Knowledge tests were fair enough, in a
way, but any test is undemocratic if it shows up
the losers as only a little better than the winners.
So in the middle of 1992 the tests were abruptly
dropped, and the English Dept. was switched over
to Spanish, as being more in keeping with those
Latin-American rhythms which soothe the jangled
nerves of people who drink too much coke.

THE U.B.C. ALUMNI CHRONICLE ABYSM   OF   TIME
I was able, however, to get a copy of the last
quiz, together with some answers, and I found the
whole thing extremely encouraging. Our young
people may not know anything, but at least they
have proved they don't care a damn, and that's the
main thing, I always say. It's good citizenship at
its ripest. Here are some sample questions and
answers:
Q. Who  was  Napoleon?
A. A well-known tenor whose name I forget.
Q. What was Mussolini?
A.  He was miscellaneous.
Q.  Have you read any good books lately?
A. No.    But they sound great.
Q. What  does  the  Catechism   mean  by "What  is
your name?    N or M"?
A. N. or M. spells Norm.    This could be short for
either Norman or Normal.
O. In   Normandy  there  is  an  apple  brandy  called
Calvados.    Why does the L.C.B. refuse to buy
this ?
A.  Because it is made from California avocados.
Q. What does L.C.B. stand for?
A. Human rights.
Q. What is a memento?
A.  Something  that  is  going  so   fast it  can't stop.
Like  Physics  1.
Q.  If you didn't learn anything at school, how about
learning something at home?
A.  My father is out teaching school and never gets
home.
Q. What is spelling?
A. Spelling- is getting somebody to spell  you  off,
so you don't have to do it yourself.
Q.  Does education  matter?
A.  It certainly does.   Teachers have to eat the same
as others.
Q. What are the primary colours?
A. Blonde and brunette.    Or, in  French, blond et
brun.
PERSONAL QUIZ
I set a little one-question quiz myself. I asked
all the freshmen: "Who said: Except ye become as
little children, etc?" And they answered with one
voice: "The Department of Education." Well, if
unanimity doesn't make good citizens, I don't know
what does.
One thing that surprised me was the decay of
freakishness and eccentricity among the professors.
There seemed a sad decline in the supply of individuality. Professors once were colourful, but these
new blokes left a grey impression on me. This was
as democracy should be. of course, yet it failed to
thrill me. (My failure to be thrilled was a great
disappointment to King Harold Winch III and King
Aneurin Bevan II.) I asked another middle-aged
student of 82 what had happened to all the silly
old bastards who used to be around. And he said:
"Oh, those? You and I are now the silly old bastards ourselves."

Both sounds are identical,
Which is not the same as rhyme.
So say "Wake Kopa konaway," which is Chinook for
"Not at all,"
And say it every time.
Hail, U.B.C,
Between the mountains and the sea,
Only you're not between them at that,
As half an eye can see, si, si, si.
Because the sea is between you and the mountains,
And not the other way around.

The Geography Division of the Department of
Geology and Geography was expanded after 1946
and the courses are now under the direction of
f. Lewis Robinson, who was an exchange student at
U.B.C. in 1938-39. Dr. Henry Gunning is Plead of
the joint Department. Modern geography at university level applies many of the principles of geographical location and distribution to practical
problems of resource development and area analysis.
During the past few years undergraduate enrolment in geography courses has ranged between
650 and 800 students and there have been about
80 geography majors. Twenty-six students have
continued into graduate work in geography at
U.B.C. and are now placed as professional geographers in the fields of government, teaching and
business.
Among the graduate students, the Geographical
Branch of the Federal Department of Mines and
Technical Surveys, Ottawa, has taken Brooke Cornwall, Charles Forward, Marion Matheson and Rona
Drinnan. The Dominion Travel Bureau is using
the services of Charles Marshall. The B.C. provincial government is now using geographers in
several positions: Don South is Assistant Director
of the Regional Planning Division; George Wood
is doing geographical studies for the Parks Division,
and is being joined this summer by Owen Jones
of this year's Honours class ; Alan Macdonald carried out field studies for the Land Utilization Survey before leaving this Spring to join the R.C.A.F.

of the usefulness of geographers. Alistair Crerar

studies this year. Bruce Chilton is doing mapping

Company in Vancouver. Don Johnston is pioneering a new field of applied economic geography when
he joins the firm of McMahon and Burns, Investment dealers, this summer. Among other things
Don will study the soundness of the resource base
of cities  wishing  to  float  bonds.
Since U.B.C. is the only university in Western
Canada doing graduate work in geography, some of
our men have been placed in the other provinces.
Rhys Smith is geographer for the Calgary and
District Planning Office; Chester Brown is research assistant doing resource development for
the Saskatchewan government. Dr. Thomas R.
Weir, one of the first undergraduates to go on in
geography, is now Chairman of the Department
of Geography at the University of Manitoba.
Paralleling the development of geography' at
university level has been an expansion and improvement of geography teaching in the B.C. schools.
Many of the geography majors continue into the
Teachers Training program and thence into the
schools better trained to teach the coming generation something about world environmental conditions. Graduate students now teaching geography
in the school system are : Jack Drummond, Victoria ;
Marion Lewis, Chilliwack; Hal Odium, Kelowna;
and Arthur Dieno, Trail. The U.B.C. library has
2 ex-geography students; Doreen Taylor and Eleanor Cock, and until this spring also Mrs. Anna
Sumpton (Laubeck).
Three grauate students have continued their
geography studies in American universities and
should shortly be receiving the degree of Ph.D.
They are Albert L. Farley, Wisconsin; George
Rheumer, Illinois; and Gordon Taylor, Minnesota.
Mr. Farley was recently appointed geographer for
the B.C. Government. Charles Howatson has returned from the University of Washington to become Assistant Professor of Geography at Victoria
College.
At the University, geography now occupies new
quarters in the lower north wing of the Forestry
and Geology Building (formerly Old Applied
Science). The map collection is one of the most
complete of all the Canadian universities. These
physical aids are assisting in the training of graduate geographers who can go forth equipped to meet
some of the problems of future Canadian area development. Behind this professional field, however,
lies the bulk of the student enrolment who are
taking geography courses because they want to
know more about the world. This "cultural" field—
that of telling students more about the physical,
economic and human geography of Canada and foreign areas—is one of the major functions of geography in the university.

RELIGION   AND   U.B.C.
At various times, it has been asserted that institutions of higher learning—particularly public-supported Universities like the University of British
Columbia—have become almost pagan in their
teaching and that yesterday's students—today's
graduates—are sadly lacking in a good moral and
ethical approach to life.
In our own University and Province, the need
for at least some religious influence being present
on the campus was recognized some time ago, even
though the institution is non-denominational and
non-sectarian. As a natural avenue for student expression, numerous denominational and inter-denominational religious clubs were established. These
extra-curricular activities, along with the many
others, have filled a void in student life.
Academically, several Senate members have recommended a course on "Comparative Religion" to
be taught for University credit by competent, qualified persons. In addition, there have been repeated
requests for certain courses to be given in different
departments—open to all students, and to some extent, "parallel" to existing courses.
For the most part, however, there has been little
positive, progressive attempt to find a reasonable
solution to the problem and to provide some machinery, if you will, whereby all religions could be represented formally on the campus without discarding
the principles of the present essentially democratic
and objective University Act.
UNIVERSITY DF IDWA
The answer to the problem seems to lie in the
experiment first tried by the University of Iowa.
That State University working on the premise that
religion, theoretically and practically, is inseparable
from education, established a School of Religion.
The idea of a School of Religion was born at the
State University of Iowa over 30 years ago and
has been an unqualified success. A special meeting
was called of the Senate Board of that University,
and of those religious leaders of the community who
carried responsibility for the spiritual welfare of
students. In due course, after conferences with
many people, and the gathering of many data, the
school was established on the following basis: a
group of trustees was elected to constitute the governing board of the school. These trustees, nine
representing the churches and six the University or
at large, met, and elected officers, and drew up a
constitution and by-laws.
It  was  first  thought  that  each  of  the  several
religious groups, that is, Jews, Catholics, and Pro-
JUNE, 1952
ORMONDE
HALL
testants, should each support a professorship. This
plan was obviated bv the fact that a grant in the
amount of $35,000.00'was obtained from J. D. Rock-
erfeller, Jr.
The School of Religion was made a legal corporation and the chief question was—could a group
of teachers be found, representing different religious
faiths, possessing the proper academic preparation
and training, who could live and work together day
bv day, endeavouring cooperatively to achieve the
common objectives of the school, respecting each
other's differences, and at the same time functioning
in full loyalty each to his own faith?
During the early period of the school there was
a Jewish professor, a Catholic professor, and a Protestant professor, in addition to the administrative-
director. There were many differences of opinion,
but unity was achieved by doing nothing except
by common consent, and this policy, strangely
enough, provided the answer.
The Board of Trustees at Iowa has seen the!
development of a successful School of Religion there
because the policy of that Board has been to make
it clear that the school is designed to present the
facts of religion sympathetically but without indoctrination, to reveal both difference and likeness
among historic and contemporary religions, and to
provide for the study of the whole of religion in
human culture without obscuring any essential
element, least of all the significance in the life of
those who teach it, yet with no appeal for response,
from students except the appeal of all good education to broader and deeper understanding, to integrity and to self-fulfillment.
The University of British Columbia could well
learn the lesson of the -University of Iowa, and
establish a school of religion that would make available courses that were taught with conviction, but
taught fairly, honestly, and without indoctrination.

Now's the time of the year when all good graduates and all who can afford such luxuries leave "on
an extending trip abroad." Very nice fun if you can
get it. Among the lucky ones this summer are
Rosemary Byrn, Nancy Rennie, Betsy Ann Greer
and Peggy Parke who left for a look at all those
fascinating places in the travel folders. Freda Bailey
left a couple of months ago for England too and she
hopes to spend a year there and perhaps find a
job. Berta Hards is another one who's gone job-
hunting and pleasure tripping abroad. Among
those they might bump into in London, Paris and
wherever are Susan James, Gerry Mitchell, Maureen
Guild, Sheila McGivem and Sheila Graham who are
all spending the summer over there.
Beryl Reed who has been in charge of the Boys
and Girls department of the Public Library in
Welland, Ont. for the past three years has left
to assume library duties in Cardiff, South Wales.
An interesting position is in store for Mrs.
Marion C. Pennington, another one of our smart
UBC women grads. She has been assistant director
of Dalhousie University's school of nursing since
1949 and has now been appointed advisor to the
Turkish Government and will make her home in
Ankara.

THE U.B.C. ALUMNI CHRONICLE ANNIE BRUCE JAMIESON-1870-19J2
A career of unusual distinction
in the field of education ended recently with the
passing of Dr.
Annie Bruce Jamieson in her 82nd
year. A most fitting tribute to her
46 years of public
service appeared
in the Editorial
columns of the
Vancouver Daily
Province.
'"She came to the
city 46 years ago
and, during practically the whole
of  that  time,  she
was    fighting    in     ANNIE BRUCE JAMIESON
some field or other J
for her ideals and for what she conceived to be the
public interest. In her time, she touched education
in Vancouver at practically every level.
"She began as a public school teacher at $50 a
month. She went on to high school teaching. She
became vice-principal of what was at that time the
largest secondary school in the community. She
served for 30 years on the Library Hoard. She was
a school trustee for 18 years.
MEMBER DF SENATE
"She was a member of the University Senate
27 years and of the Board of Governors six years.
And, in addition, she had her hand in all sorts of
movements looking to improved conditions in this
city.
"Miss Jamieson was a woman of keen mind and
broad sympathies. But, while she looked high and
far, she kept her feet on the ground, and it was as
a practical educationist that she was most useful
to the various boards to which she gave her services
so generously, and with so little thought of herself.
"Before she retired from teaching, she was looking forward with keen delight to years of leisure
and travel. But the call to additional service came
in her election to the School Board in 1929, and she
immediately put aside her own desires to take up
the new duties which, she felt, she was peculiarly
equipped to discharge.
"The new duties went on and on and the opportunity to get away and see the world never presented itself again. But Miss Jamieson did not
regret her decision. In expending herself for others
she found her fulfilment. It will be a long time
before Vancouver again finds another citizen who
will serve her as long, as competently and as self-
lessly."
The University of B.C. honoured Miss Jamieson
for her leadership by conferring upon her the Degree
of Doctor of Laws.
Her friends—former students, fellow teachers,
university associates and fellow citizens—are setting
up a Memorial Scholarship to bear her name.    To
perpetuate her spirit of public service, it is hoped
to award the scholarship annually to a Vancouver
High School student proceeding to university, one
who combines qualities of leadership and scholarship, and expresses an interest in community and
world  affairs.
JAMIESON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The establishment of the Jamieson Memorial
Scholarship Lund was announced in the April issue.
The Scholarship is to be awarded to a Vancouver
High School student proceeding to university who
has shown sound scholarship, a genuine interest in
community affairs and qualities of leadership.
The goal of the Fund is $7000, the amount necessary for an annual award of $200. Friends are
asked to assist in making the scholarship possible
by sending contributions to the B.C.T.F. Office,
1644 West Broadway, Vancouver.
The Jamieson Memorial Committee has noted
with interest the warm response of those who have
been asked to help in the preliminary work of the
campaign. A busy housewife worked on lists because "Miss Jamieson was always a very special
person to me." A druggist put a sign in his shop
window: "I'd he glad to," he said. "Miss Jamieson
taught me."
The Honourary Committee giving their patronage to the Memorial Scholarship include: Honourable W. T. Straith, Dr. N. A. M. Mackenzie, Mr. H.
N. MacCorkindale, Mr. E. S. Robinson, Mr. George
T. Cunningham, Mr. William T. Wilson, Dr.

George Puil will definitely return next season.
As a result, Head Football Coach Jelly Anderson is
looking forward to the best season American Football has had on this campus. Puil, who is an outstanding player in both American Football and
English Rugby, received his early education at King-
Edward High School. He came to U.B.C. in 1949
and in three years has picked up 3 letters and is a
starting half back. Although the smallest man,
both on the squad and in the Evergreen Conference,
Puil is one of the fastest and most deceptive U.B.C.
football players of all time.
With Fall Practices slated to get underway
September 15th, Puil will be joined by at least nine
other experienced lettermen. These men include Bill
Stuart, Al Ezzy, Leo Sweeney, Cal Murphy, Bob
Hindmarch, John Hunt, John MacDonald, Pete
Gregory and Dick Mathems. All of these lettermen
have played one or more seasons at first string
positions.
The coaching staff will be headed by Hjalmer
"Jelly" Anderson, who is starting his third year on
the campus and his second as Head Coach. Assisting Anderson are Dick Mitchell and Basketball
Coach Jack Pamfret. The Junior Varsity will be
handled by Dick Penn and Dave MacFarlane.
The graduation of Dave MacFarlane, the 1951
captain and mainstay of last year's squad will be
heavily felt, but his place as an inspirational leader
will be taken by the co-captains Bob Hindmarch
and Cal Murphy. Hindmarch, one of the campus's
all-round althletes, played Varsity Basketball and
Baseball before being sidelined for the year by a
broken leg suffered in the Tacoma game. Murphy,
a graduate of Vancouver College, was the sophomore quarterbackk who led the Birds to two wins
last year.
The 1951 schedule gets under way on September
27th with the Thunderbirds playing host to Whit-
worth College. The Birds play five home games
and three across the line in their first year as a full
member of the Evergreen Conference. Despite this
rougher schedule, followers are predicting at least
three and barring injuries which took such a heavy
toll  last season, possibly 4 wins.

RDBINETTE LEAVES
Robert Robinette, director of athletics at the
University of British Columbia, has retired from
that post upon the completion of one year of his
two-year contract.
No explanation of his resignation was forthcoming upon Mr. Robinette's return from the
United States in June of this year, but it is believed
that the new athletic policy at the University of
British Columbia dictated by the Senate had much
to do with Mr.  Robinette's decision to leave.

ft
U.B.C. INTRODUCES NEW
ATHLETIC POLICY
The University Senate has approved the rcco-
mcndation of a Senate Committee which has been
studying athletic policies for the past year and
which will result in an intensified Freshman athletic
program. The first of these recommendations, effective in the academic year 1953-54, states that no
student shall be eligible to play on a University
first team unless he or she has attended the University of British Columbia, or the affiliated colleges
on the campus, or Victoria College, as a full-time
student for at least one winter session.
This new policy will lay emphasis on the discovery and development of on-campus talent.
The second U.B.C. Senate resolution reaffirms
the requirement of adequate academic standing on
the part of those participating in University athletics.
The Senate Committee gave consideration to:
1. The current widespread re-examination of the
nature of amateurism in University athletics.
2. The University's obligation to students arriving for the first time on the campus and the need
for these students to secure the academic standing
which would enable them to continue successfully
at the University, and
3. The desirability of having freshmen compete
in the first instance with others of equivalent competence and experience.
The provision regarding transfers will, beginning
in the autumn of 1953, exclude any students from
participating in first-team athletics until they have
completed successfully one year's work at this
University. This means in effect that they cannot
come to U.B.C. from any other Canadian or American University or junior college and play on the
first-team during their first year of attendance.
The third resolution reaffirmed Senate's earlier
stand against the establishment of athletic scholarships. U.B.C. has not, to date, had either athletic
scholarships or an athletic loan fund. All three
U.B.C. resolutions are based on those of the Committee of College and University Presidents in the
United States, which are in substance as follows:
1. Athletic scholarships should be forbidden. All
scholarships should be given strictly on the basis
of a student's educational ability and economic need.
2. No freshman should be allowed on varsity
teams. Junior college and other transfers would
wait for a full year before being allowed to play.
3. No one shall play on any varsity team who
is carrying a condition, or who has not made an
average of at least 50% in the preceding spring
exams.

CONDUCTED IN NANAIMO
Reprinted from the Nanaimo Free Pres
Dr. R. Earl Foerster, chief biologist jf the Pacific Biological Station, was unanimously elected
president of the Mid-Island Branch of the U.B.C.
Alumni Association at the inaugural meeting held
in the Tideview Hotel. Miss Betty Drummond was
acclaimed secretary of the new group.
A special feature of the well-attended dinner was
the second "U.B.C. Capsule College" staged in this
province, an event which was a real meeting of
"Town and Gown". Speakers were Dr. William C.
Gibson, head of U.B.C.'s Neurological Research
Department and Crease Clinic, Dr. V. C. (Bert)
Brink, Department of Agronomy, and Prof. Robert
P. Osborne, Head of the School of Physical Education. Moderator was Alumni Director Frank J. E.
Turner.
Dr. Brink exploded a myth by stating that "approximately 95% of Aggie grads are directly
engaged in agricultural pursuits or in fields closely
allied to agriculture". He also pointed that
"U.B.C.'s Agriculture Faculty, through research
and co-operation with the Provincial Department of
.Agriculture, is in contact with almost every person
in this province."
"Although we are primarily concerned with
teacher-training in the physical education field,"
said Prof. Osborne, "we are also trying to help
supply the ever-increasing demand for leaders in
B.C.'s community centres. At present, we can't cope
with it and I hope that many more young people
will realize the opportunities in this interesting profession."
Prof. Osborne, who is an executive member of
the British Empire Games (Canada) 1954 Society,
declared optimistically "that the '54 games in Vancouver should be one of the highlights in the history
of athletics in this province."
Dr. Gibson, one of the elected members of
U.B.C.'s Senate asserted that a "university teaching hospital could well be a central provincial diagnostic clinic and of inestimable value to people all
over British Columbia."
Following their talks, the three members of the
Capsule College faculty, answered personal queries
on a wide range of university topics.
lvxecutive of the Mid-Island branch will include
Ed Barradaugh, Jack Rogers, R. V. McLean and
R. Jamieson. Aid. Elsie Hall attended the college
on behalf of the mayors.

THE U.B.C. ALUMNI CHRONICLE FRANKLY   SPEAKING
For the most part, Editor Ormy Hall and members of the Alumni Board of Management don't wish
to see too much written about the Alumni-U.B.C.
Development Fund in the Chronicle. They feel,
and rightly so, that an annual announcement of the
results, general objectives, names of Fund Directors,
and several brief progress reports during the year
are sufficient.
With that in mind then, it can be reported that
at press-time this issue, more than 1900 individuals
have contributed a total of $15,600.00. For comparison purposes, it should be noted that the best
participation total in any of the previous three
years' operation of this annual giving programme
was 1945, and the highest aggregate amount $17,-
327.00. This means of course that with just a little
more personal support before the end of the '52
drive (August 31st), U.B.C. alumni will establish
new records in both participation and amount totals.
If you'll  forgive me just this  once,  I'd like to
tell   you   just   how   one   alumnus,   Les   McLennan
(Class of '22), feels about this Fund plan.    "I can
certainly  recommend  it  to  any alumnus,"  declared
Les, "I regard it as the best in Canada, in a modest
way.    It is on a sound basis and well-managed."
"Not   only   is   it   helping   a   number   of   students
through scholarships, but it is also assisting extra
projects that are essential but not covered by the
U.B.C. budget.    Everything considered, the  Fund
does provide a channel through which we can assist
the University in its work."

JUNE. 1952
ge 21 Conversation a La Carte
What is there to talk about? Death and taxes,
Life and liberty, and happiness, and love. All the
things that go into this fascinating, exhausting job
of being a human being.
And where to talk about it? In a Great Books
group, of course. Thousands of people all over
Canada and the United States are enthusiastically
setting aside one night every two weeks to meet
with their friends and neighbors and thrash out
these problems, using the ideas of the Great Authors
as their starting point. It's amazing how they can
start out with what happened to Plato 2,000 years
ago or to St. Augustine in 386, and end up with the
same problem as it appears in today's headlines, or
as we see it happening to the family down the street.
Or, all too often, to ourselves. This is where the
fascination lies. A Great Book is one that has
lasted through the years—or centuries—because in
it the author treats one of the basic problems of
mankind, and in it many readers have found answers
or approaches to the problems they encounter in
their own living.
BOOK GROUP
But more than the stimulation of the author is
the excitement and enthusiasm of the group. If
you think of the average Book Group as a stodgy
crew, fidgeting through a torpid review of some current work until they can sup on tea and tired
crumpets, you are in for a surprise on a visit to a
Great Books Group. You will find ten to twenty
people seated around a table. They come from
all walks of life. Mr. X over there is a Ph.D., but
his word is challenged freely. Little Mrs. Y., who
looks as though she spent her time mothering a
brood of children, is listened to attentively, as one
who certainly should know what the business of
living is. The members come from all walks of life
—doctors, plumbers, lawyers, housewives, nurses,
teachers, merchants—perhaps even a few thieves.
Who knows? But they have in common a lively interest in the world about them, a taste for conversation on a level above "who went where with
whom" and "what was the score in the fifth inning",
and a willingness to pit their own ideas against
those of the author and one another. And it makes
a lively group.
At the head of the table we find two persons
known as "leaders". Their job is not to direct or
channel the discussion, but to stimulate it by questions, and keep it from straying to fields that have
no connection with the book of the evening. An
ideal discussion is one in which the leaders start
with "All right, let's go," and then sit back and
listen until they call time two hours later. And an
ideal leader is one who never lets the group suspect
what his own opinion on the subject is.
NATIONAL FOUNDATION
The appeal of the Great Books groups is so great
that since the National Foundation was established
four years ago there are more than 100,000 people
enrolled throughout the world. The movement has
centered in the United States, principally because it
originated at the University of Chicago during the
Turbulent Thirties, under the nimble direction of
Robert Maynard Hutchins and Mortimer Adler,
who taught us all "How to Read a Book." In
Canada there are many groups. Toronto and Montreal both have initiated programs, and Vancouver
and New Westminster have a thriving series of
eight groups sponsored by the Vancouver Public
Library.
Mr. E. S. Robinson, Librarian, and Mrs. Edith
Evans, Public Relations Librarian of the Vancouver
Library, have been very actively promoting the
Great Books program, and their interest and enthusiasm have been instrumental in bringing to the
Pacific Northwest a representative of the Great
Books Foundation, Mr. John Lyons, whose headquarters are in the Tacoma Public Library, Tacoma,
Washington.
Mr. Lyons reports that in addition to the programs in Vancouver, New Westminster, Seattle and
Tacoma ,there are groups as far afield as Calgary,
Alberta, and North Fraser, B.C. This summer he
will conduct a seminar in Great Books for the
Summer School of Education in Victoria.
So if you would like to spend two hours ever)'
two weeks at something more stimulating than
bridge and more rewarding than the movies or
radio, get in touch with Mrs. Evans at the Vancouver (Telephone MArine 5321), or Mr. Lyons in
Tacoma, and they will direct you to an existing
group or help you form a new group among your
friends. Then, like thousands of others, you will
find pleasure and profit from the Great Books and
their wise and witty authors.
GRAMARYE
No lettered person now need vex
Himself about the alphabet.
All any person needs is X
Upon a ballot-paper set.
Why, merely through the little labours
Of writing X, that magic star,
We're capable of fudging neighbours
And what their needs and duties are.

June 7th, at their home in Berkley. At the party a
selection of Canadian documentary travel and art
films in sound and colour were furnished by the
courtesy of the Canadian Consulate and refreshments were served later in the evening.
Good news from the Northern California Branch
was that it has ben suggested that a small cocktail
or tea party for U.B.C. arrivals in that area as a
gesture of welcome be planned, and Percy Byron,
Harold Offord of the University of California and
Stanford have agreed to act as welcoming committee for new students.
Mrs. Wadell (Laura Pim '17) and her husband,
who is a Chaplain in the U.S. Army, are now stationed in Germany.
Secretary-Treasurer Byron Straight resigned
last fall and returned to Vancouver, and Margaret
Coope '30, has kindly volunteered to act as the new
secretary-treasurer. One of Margaret's first acts
was to acknowledge the contribution from Ed.
Verner '33, and a donation from the members attending the recent business meeting.
Lenore Glenn Offord, whose "Gory Road" and
"Criminal Investigation Department" appear in the
Sundary Chronicle, was recently awarded a special
"Edgar" by the mystery writers of America. Lenore
is the author of a number of successful mysteries.

This is a brief report of a U.B.C. Alumni meeting that was held here in Ottawa recently.
We met at the Carleton College Auditorium on
Saturday, April 26th, at 8:30 p.m. Approximately
50 alumni were in attendance.
Dr. George Davidson acted as chairman of the
evening in the absence of Mr. A. J. Nash, president,
who was away from the city at the time doing post
graduate work.
Dr. George Davidson acted as chaiman of the
alumni speakers, J. Sinclair, M.P. for Coast Capil-
ano, and E. D. Fulton, M.P. for Kamloops. The
topic of both speeches was "What's Going on in
British Columbia Today" with Mr. Sinclair concentrating on recent coast developments and Mr.
Fulton describing events in the interior of the
province.
Dr. Jack Davis thanked both speakers at the
conclusion of the speeches and a <|iiestion-and-
answer peariod. Dr. Davis, as chairman of the
Nominating Committee, then presented a slate of
officers proposed by this committee to act in the
following year. Nominations were thrown open,
but the list of officers drawn up by the Nominating-
Committee were unanimously elected. These officers
include: President, Dr. George Davidson ; Vice-
President, Bob Thain; Secretary, Pat (Cowan)
Cockburn; Assisting Committee, R. L. MacRae,
Don Munroe and Ron Chorlton.
The meeting was then closed and all adjourned
to the Cafeteria for refreshments.
I trust that this report will give you a rough
idea of a very successful meeting.

a house that's an architect's dream. In fact, that's

Congregation Ceremonies
RODERICK HAIG-BROWN
The Baccalaureate service for the graduating
class of 1952 on Sunday, May 11, in the Brock
Building commenced a six-day ceremony attending
the graduation of 1200 University students on the
campus.
The Baccalaureate service was conducted by
Dr. W. S. Taylor, principal of Union College.
Wednesday, May 14, the graduating class held
exercises in which the Class Will and Prophecy
was read and a class tree was planted in a boulevard
representing 37 years of University life in this
Province.
Degrees and diplomas were conferred on Thursday and Friday and honorary degrees were granted
to Mr. Percy Spender, Australian Ambassador to
America, Mr. Chris Spencer, Mrs. Nancy Hodges,
Speaker of the Provincial House, Prof. Henry Ashton, retired head of U.B.C.'s Department of French,
and Roderick Haig-Brown, noted author and wildlife authority.
Mr. Spender was congregation speaker on the
Thursday and Mr. Roderick-Haig Brown on the
Friday.
Mr. Haig-Brown warned the graduating students
that they did not own Canada but merely had a
lease on this country. He advised the students to
keep Canada honourable, solid and lasting and not
use the country for a "quick clean-up". He told the
graduates that they were equipped to go out and
make a quick clean up, "buy a couple of Cadillacs
and die with all the lights burning in a big house
in the best residential district." "But," he said,
"The next day they will weep over your grave and
bury more than your share of Canada with you."
