of student Government
For months the campus had been on
the couch for analysis of an apparently troubled psyche. One after
another a variety of self-styled experts had probed and prodded and
then issued their conclusions. And the
diagnosis always seemed to be the
same. The student unrest, they said,
was being caused by a new 'radical'
breed of students who were now inhabiting the campus. Tuned-in,
turned-on, and revolutionary, these
students of the sixties would soon create a Berkeley at UBC.
There were a number of things
wrong with this diagnosis, but the
main one was that nobody had
bothered to ask the students about it.
In fact the matter was not clearly put
to them until the AMS first-slate elections in February, when they were
offered candidates advocating, among
other things, strikes, marches and sit-
ins as part of a program of 'student
The result was revealing. Not one
radical was elected (although one was
acclaimed to an AMS executive position) and a fee-strike proposal born in
the indignant minds of the radicals
was shot down by a 6-1 majority in a
Elected president for 1967-68, in the
biggest AMS election turnout ever, was
second-year commerce student Shaun
Sullivan, a political nobody who entered the race because he considered
the fee-strike proposal "ridiculous." In
a whirlwind campaign of only three
days he picked up enough support for
his anti-strike platform to beat the
radicals' widely-known candidate, Bob
Cruise, by a 2-1 majority.
At the same time the radicals' candidate for second vice-president, arts student Doug Halverson, was trounced by
a former Frosh president Kim Campbell. Miss Campbell's simple campaign
platform was that the politics of right
and left had no place in student
by Keith Bradbury
So demoralized were the radicals
when the election was over that they
decided to run no candidates in the
second slate election a week later.
There was even talk that the acclaimed
radical secretary Catherine Kerr,
would resign because of the disastrous
election results. As for the campus, it
was making sure that none of the
radicals made it on to council in second slate elections either. Arts student
Ray Larsen, a bearded AMS committeeman who had in the past been
identified with the campus left-wing
group, was soundly defeated in the
first vice-presidential contest, even
though he claimed to be unassociated
with the radicals.
Just what the results say about the
current campus mood is perhaps the
most interesting aspect of the election.
Clearly, they show that the students
are not as ready as the radicals
hoped—and as various analysts had
claimed—to hit the bricks in picket
lines and demonstrations. The main
reason for this appears to be that
most students feel there is no issue
facing the campus at present that demands such drastic action.
At the same time, students were concerned about the sincerity of the radicals and their ability to lead the campus. Some students felt the radical
group advocated demonstrations just
for a lark. Others looked at the things
the radicals had done on the campus
this year and decided theirs wasn't the
type of leadership that was needed. At
the beginning of the year, for instance,
the group had tried to arouse students
to action on a student housing crisis
that apparently existed more in the
minds of the radical group members
than in fact. A 'tent-in' staged on the
Main Mall was a flop. Later, they
badly misjudged campus opinion by
viciously attacking Dr. Macdonald's record at the time he announced his resignation. And finally they brought
forth the ill-conceived strike plan. The
Keith Bradbury, Law II
strike was so strongly opposed it became the main issue in the election
and the prime reason for the defeat of
However, while the students have
rejected all thought of a revolutionary
change, it would be wrong to suggest—as a recent downtown newspaper
article did—that they have merely
opted for continuation of the status
quo. Sullivan's campaign, for instance,
was based on the claim that you don't
have to be radical to be an activist. His
platform included such proposals as a
year-long campaign to gain public
support for higher education by clearly
and accurately presenting the problems. In effect a second Back Mac
campaign, the program will be built
around the slogan, "If you don't help
us now, it may be your child that is
denied a university education."
Simultaneously Sullivan suggested—
perhaps for the first time in AMS
history—that the student government
take an active interest in the quality
of education provided by the university. The essential difference between
his proposals and those of Cruise and
the radicals was that change could be
brought about within the existing system and this was what appealed to the
not-very-revolutionary  student   body.
As for the radicals, the obvious conclusion is that for a small group they
made a lot of noise. Up until last fall
the members were politically astute and
worked their way into positions
through which they could make the
student body appear more radical than
it actually was. Probably this is why so
many misread the campus atmosphere
so badly. With their decisive rejection
in the elections and the departure after
this term of a number of leaders, it
looks as if the group may fade away.
Quietly, even. □
JiyA.^taiaib, It costs so little
to make a photo talk
When a family grows up and goes its several ways, when a job that has to be
done separates you by thousands of miles from near and dear ones, there's
a gap left that photographs only partly fill. And yet, it takes only a minute—and
costs so little—to pick up your phone and make that beloved photo talk.
As the years pass by, the telephone becomes one of the
strongest links holding scattered families together. On birthdays and other special anniversaries—on occasions like Easter,
Mother's Day, Father's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas—
a long distance call is "the next best thing to being there."
If you travel frequently on business or have to spend
extended periods away from home, be sure to arm yourself with
a B.C. TEL Long Distance Credit Card. It enables you to call
long distance from any phone in the country to any other phone
and charge the call to your personal or business account.
(Evening, station-to-station calls,first 3 minutes)
The pleasure of a long distance call remains one of
today's biggest bargains. Despite rising incomes and
living costs, many long distance calls actually cost less
in dollars and cents than 10 years ago. Use Long Distance

(Edin.), editor
Cowichan Leader:
"Freedom to think
does not carry with
it freedom from
social conventions."
Carola Kessler,
Ed I:
"What about that
'I have just crawled
out of bed' look?"
I'm for Them—
y views on this question are based
on my own four years in a student hut in Acadia Camp and having
one daughter who had four years in a
college residence and another with one
year. They disagree with me. One said,
"I appreciate being able to run around
in jeans and sweatshirt looking like a
victim of the plague, so I'm conservative on this."
This daughter and her husband are
house-parents in a men's dorm at a
New Hampshire college where he is a
student. He is strongly for mixed residences providing the rooms or suites
have private bathrooms. As he said,
regardless of how rigidly rules are now
enforced some people will still break
them, and "Sure, one is taking a
chance when he decides for co-ed
dorms but so do parents when they
decide to have a child."
In our society all innovations are
suspect until they prove their merit.
As usual, we must accept conditions
before attempting changes. I propose,
then, that students to be considered
for a mixed residence should be at
least entering third year, have a good
academic record, and parental consent.
By third year most students have
established their personal scale of
values and their responsibilities to
themselves and others.
The first group to initiate this plan
should be aware of their status as pioneers who must always be conscious of
the effects of their actions on those
who will follow. It would not be an
easy assignment for any young person
but it could be a valuable part of their
education. Today's students realize,
more than ever we did, the responsibility of all for all and I think a self-
imposed discipline is one they would
understand and accept.
We are not dealing here with children. These are young adults whom we of mixed Residences?
are supposed to be preparing to live
constructive lives in the real world
beyond the campus. Residences segregated by sex are accepted as normal
socially in our universities and I submit that these are not normal but
simply more convenient for those who
must administer them. I submit, too,
that we parents take a good hard look
at the report from the Canadian Union
of Students showing that approximately 55% of students had felt a desire
to seek advice regarding emotional and
psychological problems. The most serious of these were (1) despondency and
depression, (2) lack of self-confidence,
and (3) relations with the opposite
Can we afford to ignore the importance of such a report? Let us stop
living in a dream world. Let us not
treat this as just another statistic. We
are deceiving ourselves and betraying
our children if we don't take immediate action to get at the sources of
this trouble and act on our findings in
the most constructive ways possible.
In seeking solutions let us listen to the
ideas of those most concerned—the
students themselves.
In planning shared accommodation
let us listen to their ideas, too. I suggest that an architect and student committee should discuss and agree on
building plans so that the personal
privacy of residents is assured, as it is
in most of our homes. As I see it, this
would simply be a natural extension of
the home environment with mutual
respect for the rights of others. Perhaps
the planners would decide on separate
floors with mixed and separate lounge
areas arranged as desired.
To me implementing this idea is a
necessary social experiment. Unless
there is a sudden drastic change in our
social structure most of our students
will marry during or shortly after their
academic years. I see the shared residence as a good preparation for life as
it is and for living together later as
vital, creative partners in marriage.
Our society has evolved laws for us
to follow and as circumstances change
we have learned to modify these laws
to our advantage. This is happening in
every other aspect of life today. Why
not, then, in the universities which
should be in the vanguard of social
change? □
I'm agin—
/Commingling of the sexes must
^ have its limits at a university.
While first in ideas, first to protest
political injustice, first to welcome innovators, first in knowledge, universities must furnish the further lead of
distinguishing between liberty and
What happens on a particular university campus reflects directly upon
that university. This platitude is necessary to illustrate the point that in the
public mind there is constantly association between a university's reputation and the public's idea of what a
university should be.
For instance, attire which is normal
under appropriate circumstances of
segregation could easily become distasteful under desegregation.
Student residential arrangements in
England, regardless of age of students,
include only a few examples of coeducational boarding schools. To date
no university residences there appear
to enjoy the freedom of the ordinary
city hotel and motel where men and
women come and go freely.
It is just as proper—rare word these
days!—for segregation of men's and
women's residences to continue as at
present in normal term time as it is for
faculty quarters to be out of bounds to
students. We already enjoy considerable freedom and are legatees of a
healthy tradition of co-education from
kindergarten onward.
So accustomed are we to sharing
general facilities with the opposite sex
that a news item out of England last
July will strike us as downright amusing. The world was informed then
that girl students at Cambridge University had won the right to dine in
hall with students of Jesus College.
"where no woman has crossed the
threshold since nuns studied there in
the 15th century."
There, the sweeping away of a
cherished university barrier no doubt
made some male students ill. To most
of us here the change ranks as another
victory of basic good sense over custom
deeply entrenched. Even the strongest
bastions fall.
Present UBC campus residences,
while perhaps too few in number, represent to my mind as enlightened an
arrangement in university living for
freshmen and other undergrads as can
be coped with by the students themselves and the university authorities.
My reasons lie within the normal
structuring of authority of campus life
in and beyond the lecture theatres and
Having listened to students question
the value of certain subjects in their
early years, I have later had the pleasure of hearing these same students
acknowledge that these particular subjects had after all their rightful place
in the general scheme of things. Subjects despised at the time were seen to
fit into the degree course and relate
themselves to others, as elements producing unity.
By acknowledging the value at a
later stage in their degree studies of
subjects considered without value in
the early stages, students in effect
recognized their entire course as the
product of more mature minds than
their own.
As master minds map out courses,
so do they operate in planning other
features of university life. Collective
human wisdom is the democratic force
which gives the best chance of success.
Students chafe at social strictures.
This is as it  should  be  because the Residences
inquiring mind, the questioning mind,
reaches its full flower at university
where the atmosphere should encourage exploration. The student who provides his own funds for fees and
lodging has a right to feel he has
proved himself at least in certain particulars an adult worker in society. He
is entitled to feel his free time should
not be unduly managed.
Freedom to think does not, however,
carry with it freedom from social conventions of our age, when these conventions are based on the firm foundation of proven practice and established
morality. Co-educational residential
blocks for freshmen would pose problems which could create enmity
between the sexes, not co-operation.
One danger today in our society is
that men may cease to act like men
owing to the direction of their upbringing at all stages by women.
Common dining and lounge facilities for segregated dorms represent a
great concession by the authorities to
recognition of freshmen as full adults.
To go beyond this would be an unnecessary handicap upon the learning
process which alone justifies a university. It would also, by casting doubt
upon a university's ability to lead,
create loss of confidence by the public.
Reputations are easily lost and are
gained only by the sacrificial way of
self-discipline. □
I'm agin, too—
problem of mixed dorms I immediately adopted a negative attitude.
Disquieting images formed in my
mind as I attempted to picture a residence in which male and female students occupied the same building.
Now a moralist I am not and the
issue in this case is, in my opinion, as
far removed from morals as Venus is
from Pluto. To be quite frank, the
issue for me is primarily a practical
one—convenience—although a social
situation which may vaguely be
termed 'feminine freedom of expression' is also involved.
The   issue   of   convenience   can   be
discussed simply by enlarging on a
series of situations typical of those institutions of comfortable, convenient,
and very social housing commonly
known as girls' dorms. First, the topic
of hallway apparel. Now, as anyone
who has lived in a dorm knows, hallway apparel ranges anywhere from a
bathtowel with matching accessories of
cold cream and curlers, to a formal
with matching accessories of glamour
make-up and a tiara. Although the latter occurs rather infrequently, the former is standard—quite standard.
Every man likes to see a girl 'all
dolled up,' but only a misogynist would
relish the sight of a bathtowel diva.
Conversely, while the average girl has
no objection to playing a few musical
comedy-type bathtowel scenes with a
guy—strictly harmless but hilarious—
only a nut would yearn to stage a
nightly cold-cream-curler horror show.
Seriously, though, it would be quite
awkward to be unable to leave your
room without first making yourself
publicly presentable. It would certainly
put a crimp into all those mad dashes
to the laundry room, slip-clad, dress
and iron in hand. And what about that
'I have just crawled out of bed' look
which we all have to face every morning, or noon as the case may be. It's
just the thing to destroy a man's illusions about the feminine mystique
permanently (also prematurely).
Freedom of movement is an essential
to dorm girls. At all hours of the night
it is necessary to run upstairs and
downstairs, in and out of rooms—borrowing books or stewing over assignments together. Sometimes you sneak
next door simply because your own
four walls are closing in on you. A girl
might think twice about running
down the hall for a chat if it meant
that she had to perform a complete
personal renovation first.
I realize that every point mentioned
up to now might be completely irrelevant, depending on the proposed structure of the mixed residences. In making these points I am assuming that
these residences would be very similar
to the existing ones, with slight changes of course. I do believe that it is
possible to build residences where each
room would have private or semi-
private facilities. I do not believe that
money is available to provide these
conveniences. Therefore the main
argument against mixed residences,
from the  girl's  point of view   (and  I
suspect from the men's also) is one of
a loss of privacy coupled with inconvenience.
A women's residence is not a home.
Many things can be done to make it
seem like a home but the essentials are
simply lacking. Living in a dorm is
living in an artificial situation. Tempers must be controlled, tolerance
must be practised faithfully. Consideration for others becomes, or
should become, a habit. What is
needed under these conditions to keep
girls human (sane, to be exact) are
many, many valves to let off emotional
In an all-girls residence these valves
are blown regularly with great enthusiasm. They include singing and dancing in the hallway, harmonizing in the
bathtub, mutual admiration and encouragement on week-end evenings,
friendly abuse hurled back and forth,
and spontaneous eruption of discussions.
No one thinks it unusual if Ann
Average comes skipping down the hall
chanting, "He phoned ... he phoned!"
Everyone knows she has been waiting
for that call for days.
Social commonsense dictates that
such diversions would become extinct
in a mixed dorm. Can you see a girl
skipping down the hall singing, "He
phoned ... he phoned," right past the
engineer she dated the week-end
These experiences in themselves are
amusing. The reasons behind them are
not. Our society is one which stresses
both male and female independence.
At present too many taboos exist which
would make the lives of students in
mixed residences quite awkward.
Girls like to get away from the fellows, climb into something ugly but
comfortable,  and  relax.
Some changes in residence are desirable, there is no question about that.
But in my opinion and the opinion of
the girls with whom I discussed the
matter, the change to mixed residences
is not one of them. □

UBC Alumni Association
The changing Face
of our Campus
Elsewhere in this issue appears the announcement of
the Annual General Meeting and Dinner. This affair
traditionally marks a stage in our Association's history—the
time when we look back over the problems and accomplishments of the preceding year.
But, more importantly, it marks the beginning of a new
phase in the Association's activity.
Tremendous changes are brewing within the total University structure and your Association has been playing and
will continue to play its role in ensuring that those changes
are brought about in an efficient and orderly fashion.
The departure of a president, the pressure from students
for a larger voice in the affairs of the University, the demand from faculty for more control of University government, all are serious matters facing not only UBC, but many
similar institutions of learning in North America. On all of
these issues your Association is currently preparing studies
and recommendations.
We are delighted, therefore, to be able to announce that
the man who will address us at the Annual Meeting, besides
being an accomplished speaker, is one who, by his very
background, understands the constant demands for change
and its relationship to the academic setting. Dr. Arthur S.
Flemming, president of the University of Oregon since 1961,
is first and foremost a successful academician and university administrator. But, in addition to this, he has an outstanding background of service to his government. A member of the U.S. Civil Service Commission, he rose to the
position of director, Office of Defence Mobilization, participating in meetings of the U.S. Cabinet. Later he held the
post (for three years) of Secretary of Health, Education and
Welfare in the cabinets of President Eisenhower and President Kennedy. He was a member of the Hoover Commission
on organization of the American Civil Service, and many
many other committees and boards.
The obvious success with which he has used his experience and background in administering a large university should prove a fascinating basis for his address on May
May I suggest that you now make up your mind to
attend, and 'phone for a reservation.
No alumni president has had the opportunity of being
associated with such a hard-working and able group of
Board members as has been my privilege this last year. The
changes in organization and physical location have formed
the foundation for a whole new success story for the Association. With so many able hands to man the ship, its progress can only be rapid.
My thanks to all who helped this year; my best wishes to
my successor.
9 Let's reform
]ohn Perry Miller,
Dean of the Graduate School,
Yale University
The graduate schools of Arts and Science—long in the
shadow of the undergraduate colleges and professional
schools—have moved to the centre of the academic stage.
Today the foundations and the state and federal agencies
are providing funds which make graduate education available to all the more promising applicants. In doing so they
have all but eliminated lingering poverty—that old fashioned
test of motivation for graduate study—which I, and many of
you, knew so well in the 1930's and 1940's and before.
Our graduates are sought eagerly for teaching and research. And they are sought with equal eagerness by industry, government, and foundations, as well as by those
rapidly growing private research institutions which seek to
avoid the red tape of government and the nuisances of the
university, which I assume means the students!
The graduate school, then, is recognized today as one of
the possible paths to positions of respect and responsibility,
whether in the groves of academia or the world of affairs—
public or private.
Coincident with the massive increase in the interest in our
graduate schools and support for them and especially for the
PhD programs, there has been a renewal of attacks upon
them, especially upon the PhD. It is argued that PhD programs take too long. That these programs are too specialized.
That in the humanities they represent a "scandalous misuse
of talent." That in the sciences, too often, they develop
technicians or supportive personnel rather than scientist;
capable of independent and creative research and teaching.
That for many PhD candidates the thesis requirement is unnecessary, and a dehumanizing and debilitating experience.
That the programs fail to develop interesting and interested
teachers for our colleges and schools. That we should alter
the requirements or create a new Doctor's degree for the
training of college and school teachers.
It is inevitable and appropriate that controversy should
swirl around our graduate schools, that their policies and
practices should be subject to public scrutiny and that they
themselves should undertake searching self-analysis. These
attacks are not new and the issues have been widely debated
for the last half century.
But this is no reason for complacency. It would be tragic
if the graduate schools should not use their new position of
affluence and respect for experimentation and reform. For
graduate education is sorely in need of reform—reform
based on careful reassessment of our objectives and opportunities. It would be specially tragic if our more distinguished
and influential graduate schools were to leave this task to
others. The time is long past when these graduate schools can
dominate graduate education by sheer numbers. Our special
mission is twofold: (1) the establishment and maintenance
of standards of quality and (2) leadership in experimenting
with and developing new forms of graduate training.
I should like to suggest some avenues for experimentation
and reform in light of current problems.
First, I suggest that we dethrone the PhD as the only degree
acceptable for positions of college teaching. Current practice, of course, places a high premium upon the PhD degree
for such positions. Accrediting agencies, in determining
whether to accredit new and developing colleges, count the
number of PhD's on the faculty. In response to these accrediting agencies, college presidents collect PhD's for their
faculties. To satisfy the evergrowing demands of college
presidents, foundations and the federal government finance
increasing numbers of students for PhD study. And we graduate deans produce PhD's as best we can—not, ever, without
some qualms about their quality.
But, I submit, we have let ourselves become the slave of
this degree. The PhD is a research degree. As such it should be
supported and respected. Its standards should be maintained. But we have come to view it as the common currency
for admission to the market for college teaching.
For many positions in college teaching it is appropriate.
But is it necessary for all? I think not.
The time has come to distinguish candidly those teaching
positions in our colleges and universities where the training
required of the PhD is a necessity, from those where it is a
luxury. We must learn to judge a teacher's worth, not by
what he has done as a student, but by what he can do to educate the young. The PhD is an honourable and respected
degree. We must, of course, maintain and even raise the
standards for this degree. As dean of the Graduate School
which first awarded this degree in the United States over one
10 by John Perry Miller
graduate Education
hundred years ago, I would hardly think otherwise. But the
PhD degree has no claim to a monopoly of college teaching
A massive effort to increase the number of PhD's to
satisfy our needs for college teachers can only lead to a decline in the meaning and value of the degree. Our leading
graduate schools must resist such lowering of standards. At
the same time we must be prepared to recognize an alternative degree as appropriate for many positions in college
teaching. We must train men and women for such a degree.
We must encourage the recognition of such a degree by
employing institutions.
A decline in the meaning and value of the PhD degree is
the most likely alternative to the development and acceptance
of a new degree. But this is no new problem. It has been
discussed for over a decade, and several steps have been
taken within recent months or are being discussed along
these lines. The University of Toronto, several years ago,
instituted the Master of Philosophy degree, a teaching
degree. The Select Committee on Education at Berkeley, in
the Muscatine Report, issued in March, recommended the
adoption of a new 'Doctor of Arts' degree which would be the
equivalent of the PhD minus the dissertation. The mid-west
conference of graduate deans has recommended the institution of the 'certificate' or 'degree of candidate' for persons
who have reached the same level of achievement. And at
Yale we have recently announced the new Master of Philosophy degree as our sole intermediate degree between the
Bachelor's and PhD degrees, in the usual departmental
The time is ripe for action. I hope that a group of leading
universities will join in establishing this degree.
The second problem to which I would speak is the alleged
conflict between specializing in the graduate schools and the
objectives of a broad liberal education in the colleges.
The typical PhD program is a narrow program—with emphasis on specialization. This follows from the fact that the
PhD degree is a research degree—and research (in contrast
to exposition) calls for depth.
I have argued above that the PhD degree is not a necessity
for all teaching purposes—even at the college level. But for
its legitimate purposes, it is appropriately an experience in
This does not mean, however, that the recipient of the PhD
degree must himself be a narrow specialist. What he is depends in part upon what he is when he comes to graduate
school—what he does in graduate school—and what he does
afterwards. If the PhD recipient has received training in
breadth in college—if the climate of the graduate school is
conducive to inquiry beyond the student's specialty, and if his
post-doctoral experience is properly structured, he need not
be a narrow man.
Unfortunately, some of our graduate students are not
broadly trained in college—are themselves neither widely
interested nor interesting. Such graduate students may become technically competent PhD's. But they will lack the
perspective, the sense of relevance, and the sense of values to
apply their knowledge imaginatively as leaders in education
or in the world of affairs.
We must find better ways to select graduate students who
have the potential to communicate their learning in the
larger context and with a sense of relevance. But more than
this, we must seek to create an environment in our graduate
schools—formal and informal—which encourages students to
look beyond their specialty, and to relate it to the larger world
of learning and affairs.
And I suggest that we experiment with post-doctoral programs designed not, as most such programs are today, to
deepen the post-doctoral fellow's research competence, but
to broaden his horizons whether by multi-disciplinary
training or by providing him an opportunity to explore informally the exploding world of learning whether in the
university or outside. Such opportunities would provide
an antidote to the specialization of doctoral study.
But this leads me to my third problem and a more
fundamental proposal. I urge that the universities reconsider
the whole sequence of higher education, more particularly
the relation between the college, on the one hand, and the
graduate and professional schools, on the other. Present
programs and administrative structures were developed in
an earlier era, when the bachelor's degree was the capstone
of higher education for most college students.  But times
1 1 Graduate education
have changed. Today from seventy to eighty per cent or
more of the graduates of Harvard and Yale and similar
colleges go on to graduate education.
We should review the educational processes and the administrative structures which we have inherited in light of
this change. These structures include three or four years of
secondary school and four years of college, followed by
graduate or professional school. Within this structure the
college has devised a curriculum based upon the twin
concepts of general education and concentration. These
arrangements served an earlier generation well. But are
they appropriate for the future?
Does this educational structure provide necessary flexibility for young men and women passing from adolescence
to positions of responsibility in education, the professions,
or the world of affairs? Must we proceed from general
education, to a major, and then to graduate or professional
study? Is this the best sequence for all persons and in all
The concept of concentration (or the major) was based
on the assumption that a liberally educated man should
have pursued some subjects in considerable depth—whether
the subject is related to his subsequent career or not. But in
a world where most students are going on to graduate
study, does the logic of the undergraduate major survive?
Should we not experiment with anticipating graduate and
professional training in junior and senior years? Might this
not reduce the ennui that we find in so many undergraduates?
Need the rigid separation between graduate and undergraduate survive? May we not encourage early concentration—even early graduate or professional training? And may
we not inject more training in breadth after or along with
a student's graduate and professional training?
Higher education has greater opportunities and responsibilities than ever before. We are being asked to train
more persons who combine high competence with a sense
of relevance and purpose to be the leaders in learning and
affairs in tomorrow's world. As we adapt graduate education
to new opportunities and responsibilities while conserving
our highest traditions of scholarship, we face a great
opportunity for inventiveness, creative experimentation, and
reform. □

Medical Education
by Donald H. Williams, M.D., Head and Professor
Continuing Medical Education, UBC
It is one thing to recognize the need for continuing
medical education, another to set up a program
that works. When The University of British Columbia finds itself, as it does, attracting national and
international attention from medical educators for its
continuing educational partnership with practising
physicians and community hospitals, one can be sure
it has found a formula that works.
Last year 35%—that is, 850—of British Columbia's
2,448 physicians in practice registered for one or more
UBC continuing education courses. When it is considered that the demands of patient care required an
average work week of 63 hours, that becomes a truly
remarkable figure and a tribute to these physicians.
The public immediacy of high quality of medical
care has involved the University, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C., the B.C. Medical Association and its affiliated local medical societies, community hospitals, private and public philanthropy,
and government support both provincially and nationally in a congenial partnership designed to
encourage a scholarly way of life for every physician
in the province.
The courses are only part of the picture. The UBC
concept is that—"reading, the day-to-day life-long,
scholarly habit, whereby adequate time is set aside
by the learned physician to review thoughtfully and
studiously,  new  acquisitions  to  medical  knowledge
12 goes to the Doctor
An upper Vancouver Island five-hour "free-wheeling"
question-and-answer session among doctors
and to keep fresh already acquired knowledge, is at the heart
of all continuing medical education."
Putting a firm foundation under that concept, the College
of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia is spending
in excess of $60,000 a year providing books and periodicals
to physicians throughout the province.
The Library Service of the College is the finest instance
of an entire medical profession within a provincial boundary of Canada, under the educational terms of the Medical
Act, and with the enlightened leadership of the Council of
the College and its Library Committee, demonstrating to
the nearly two million people in the province the determination of the College to assure them the highest quality
of medical care possible by placing the resources of the
Keith Memorial Library and its 37 branch libraries in
community hospitals within ready reach of every physician
in British Columbia.
One of the many warm, co-operative bonds between
medical 'town and gown' in British Columbia is the partnership in continuing education between the B.C. Medical
Association and the Faculty of Medicine. When the University established a department of continuing medical
education in 1960, the Association completely reorganized
its committee on education to support the Faculity's new
program. It agreed to sponsor, along with its affiliated local
medical societies the regional courses throughout the
This means that the Association and its affiliated local
societies now have 13 standing committees on continuing
education with a total membership of 80. Once a year the
chairmen of all these committees come to Vancouver for a
two-day 'Conference on Education,' the funds provided by
the directors of the B.C. Medical Association. By way of
further financial support to the cause of maintaining professional competence in the province, they make a generous
grant of $5000 annually to the Faculty of Medicine department of continuing education. This educational contribution
of organized medicine is unique in Canada and should be
a source of great public provincial pride.
Continuing medical education existed, of course, long
before the Faculty of Medicine set up a department, existed
as it has always done in the community and teaching
hospitals of the province. It is there that a greater amount
of effective continuing medical education takes place than
anywhere else. Ward rounds, pathology and radiology conferences, corridor consultations, coffee cup clinical discourse,
medical audits, tissue committee activity, accreditation reviews—all these and other forms of professional association
that occur within the four walls of every hospital add up
in-toto to a very substantial continuing education effort.
Every hospital is, in fact, a community medical education
centre in its own right.
At present in British Columbia 18 hospitals, as their
contribution to continuing medical education, provide their
fine modern accommodation and facilities for the off-
campus community-based courses of the Faculty of Medi-
13 Doctor Williams was a Beit Memorial
Fellow in Physiology, University of
London, and a Mayo Fellow in dermatology between 1932 and 1937. For 22
years he was a practising consultant in
dermatology in Vancouver. Since July,

development of the University's province-wide program of continuing
medical education.

cine. Thus, more than 150 hospital board trustees—community leaders from all walks of life — and their respective
hospital administrators, play a most important role in B.C.'s
partnership in 'keeping-doctors-up-to-date.'
The launching of the Faculty of Medicine's continuing
education program could not have been accomplished without the W. K. Kellogg Foundation's generous grant of
$60,000, and the supporting financial assistance of national
health grants, the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation, and
the B.C. Tuberculosis Christmas Seal Society. In addition
to its financial contribution the Society has completely
renovated the Christmas Seal Auditorium as a home for
the Faculty's courses in Vancouver. This year the Canadian
Arthritis & Rheumatism Society (B.C. Division), Canadian
Cancer Society—British Columbia and Yukon Division,
and B.C. Heart Foundation are all generously supporting
the program.
Because continuing medical education is much more than
just a matter of organized courses; and because its success
depends on many apparently remote and seemingly unrelated but essential factors, the important contribution of
government, both provincial and national—and this, of
course, means the people of British Columbia and Canada
—is perhaps not fully appreciated. Funds that support The
University of British Columbia's Faculty of Medicine—
funds that build superb community hospitals — funds that
are helping to build Canada's first university health sciences
centre, all, directly and indirectly, make the Government
of British Columbia and the Government of Canada important partners in the continuing education program for
physicians in the province.
Unlike other forms of education, which as a rule simply
involve teachers and learners, effective continuing medical
education depends upon the co-operation and support of
others. In British Columbia continuing medical education
since its formal inception in 1960 has been a partnership—
and a most congenial and happy one—of The University of
British Columbia, physicians, hospitals, philanthropists,
voluntary health agencies, government and the public. And
it is the public—the bread-winners, the home makers and
the children of British Columbia—who, through health care
of the highest possible quality, are the ultimate benefactors
of this 'town-gown' partnership in continuing medical
education. □
Early in this century the late President Wesbrook, then Dean of Medicine
at the University of Minnesota, gave an
address in Winnipeg under the title
'State Responsibility in University
Education.' Much of what he had to
say is pertinent today. Here is a short
As to the form of university government, no hard and fast lines can be
drawn, since each community has its
own local problems to solve. In general
terms, however, the alumni should have
a very large voice in affairs, if they
maintain an active university interest
and connection. They know, as no
others can, what is being done in the
university. They know the strong points
as well as the weak in their own training. If they have developed themselves
as they should after graduation, they
are in a position to compare results
achieved at home with those secured
abroad and, when working shoulder to
shoulder with the staff of the university, are capable of giving advice,
assistance and support that it is not
possible to obtain from any other group
of citizens.
The faculties should certainly have
representation in the general and
special conduct of affairs, in the selection of new teachers and in the formulation and realization of a general university policy.
The government of the state or province should also be represented, since
it has charge of the state or provincial
treasury, and has to meet the detailed
needs of the province, including interests other than educational. University
interests should be so safeguarded,
however, that no individual or political
party can in any way, or for any purpose, interfere with the proper performance of its function and its natural
growth. □
14 Wives
by Janet I. Schermbrucker
fTlHE loneliest group of people at-
■*• tached to a multiversity could be
the wives of students. For a few tough
years while their husbands are studying for degrees—generally second or
higher degrees—they might well be
tempted to think of themselves as
'neither fish, flesh, fowl nor good red
herring,' but here at UBC they have
done something about it.
Up to the mid-fifties it was coffee
parties and more coffee parties in
Acadia and Wesbrook camps, time-
filling but unsatisfying. Then, with
the increasing number of married students the girls decided to form a club.
They wanted to meet regularly, to
make new friends, to take advantage
of what the University had to offer,
and deal with topics more interesting
than diapers and housing problems.
The earliest written records date
back to 1957, and the members of the
club which had been formed were not
confined to Acadia and Wesbrook
camps. They were meeting in the Mildred Brock Lounge of Brock Hall
under the sponsorship of the Women's
Undergraduate Society. In 1957 five
meetings were held in this lounge,
with an attendance of 30-40 at each
meeting. This was the nucleus of what
has later grown up to be a large, and
it is hoped, valuable club.
By 1958 the group was meeting
regularly once a month to hear speakers on topics of interest. In addition,
three subsidiary groups, later known
as interest groups, were formed—
bridge, sports and discussion. More
such groups were formed over the
years so that at present there are seven:
the original three plus sewing, arts
and crafts, curling, and play reading.
Monthly general meetings continued
to be held in Brock Hall until April
1966 under the successive sponsorships
of the Women's Undergraduate Society, the AMS, and most recently the
Graduate Students' Association.
With plans materializing for the
new student union building difficulties
were foreseen, the Student Wives not
being themselves students. It was suggested, therefore, that they look to the
Faculty  Women's  Club  for  sponsor
ship. The executive of this club was
sympathetic to their needs and offered
them the use of their facilities in Cecil
Green Park. In addition they have the
use of the main floor at a very reasonable cost.
Two of the special interest groups
have had their own special sponsorship. The sports people—and that term
covers swimming, skating, volleyball
and bowling—have had the use of
various UBC gymnasia without fee.
The seamstresses have met from the
beginning in the Home Economics
building where they are allowed the
use of machines and other equipment
without charge. Some of the girls make
their own clothes; most work on their
children's clothes and find it a great
help with the budget.
The bridge players, where members
take turns hostessing, meet in small
groups in one another's homes. The
arts and crafts, originally a painting
group, has expanded its activities to
include weaving, candle making, silk
screening, mosaics, rug hooking, printing by woodcuts and batik. They expect to move their activities into the
facilities provided by the Faculty Women's Club in Cecil Green Park. Play
reading, the most recently formed
group and proving fairly popular, will
probably follow the same course.
Although membership for 1966-67
has exceeded 120, the monthly meetings are no less informal and enjoyable
than they have been in the past. The
executive provides a stimulating program at each meeting; guest speakers
on a wide variety of subjects continue
to be the most popular.
This year for the first time a membership fee of $1 was introduced, and
that modest dollar has been made to
cover the costs of a children's Christmas concert, a fashion show and a
number of other smaller items.
Without the Association many wives
of students would have few social contacts, their husbands having little time
for anything but study. Are the activities of the group valuable and satisfying? Ii size of membership and extent
of participation are valid criteria, the
answer is "yes." □

17 This summer I was one of three
UBC delegates in a total of 44
Canadian students to travel to Turkey
for a six-week seminar. We were part
of a Canadian World University Service Committee program which has
been going on now for 18 years. These
international summer seminars sponsored by the committee have taken
students to such widely diverse countries as Sweden, Japan, Poland, Chile,
Pakistan, France, Germany, the West

other three weeks the group was divided into three: one travelled east via
the Black Sea and returned through
the Anatolian Plains; one travelled
south-east as far as Lake Van near the
Iraq-Iran border; my group, the third,
took the west coast—'the Turkish Riviera'—and then east to Konya.
We visited fruit canning factories,
hospitals, schools, petroleum developments, copper mines, tobacco farms,
etc. Everywhere, with the help of the

changes of the 1920's, Turkey existed
outside the concept of time; that is to
say, time had no meaning as generation after generation of Turks ate,

had done. Life on the Anatolian Plains
was continuous, and though the individual died, the village and the family
unit remained unchanged. But—enter

tablished with several aims in mind:
they serve to broaden knowledge and
appreciation of another nation, its culture, problems and people; they emphasize a greater understanding of
Canada and her role in international
affairs; they allow Canadians to participate in a unique international experience.
The 1966 seminar opened in late
June with a four-day orientation program at St. Adele, Quebec, where we
began to examine the historical, political, economic, scientific and cultural
aspects of Turkey. In the course of
this orientation we visited the Institute
of Islamic Studies at McGill University and listened to various experts on
Turkey now residing in Canada.
And then it was Rome by air and
from there to Istanbul by train via
Venice, Trieste, Belgrade and Sofia. Of
our five weeks in Turkey, two were
spent in Istanbul attending special
lectures at the University of Istanbul
Turkish students who acted as our
guides and interpreters, we talked to
the Turkish people we met, whether
by chance as we were touring or at
official gatherings.
The general theme of the seminar
was 'The Changing Character of the
Turkish Revolution.' Each student was
a participant in one of five interest
groups; the utilization of resources, the
legal and social framework, political
and international relations, the effects
of the increasing emphasis on science,
and the institutional development in
Turkey. As a member of the last group,
my predominant interest lay in the
development of the school system in

secularism and church-control, socialistic youth and conservative old age.

and as young as the twentieth century.
ever known; the vast leap into the
modern age.
One of the main areas where development must and does take place is
in the field of education. We found
that nursery schools are located in the
larger towns and cities, a predominant
number connected with large factories.
These care for the children of working
mothers and are, on the whole, quite
modern and well-equipped. But smaller village factories will have the children playing in the streets while their
mothers work. More than once we saw a
woman in a rug factory take a short
break to breast-feed her child which
had been lying on the ground in a corner, surrounded by flies, and then
resume her work.
The real foundation of the Turkish
educational system is, however, the
primary school. Typical schools we
visited were characterized by starkness
and a lack of all the colourful designs
and displays which are commonplace

halls of the schools hangs a picture of

Primary school, which today is compulsory between the ages of seven and
the country.
Thriving modern cities such as
Istanbul, Ankara, Bursa and Izmir enjoy a 98% enrolment in primary

After primary school, children who
so wish may continue their education
by entering high schools or vocational
and trade institutions. Only 22% of
Turkish teenagers attend these schools.
During the 40 years since education
was secularized, progress has been
hampered by severe problems, among
which geography is one of the most
important. Not only are villages in the
far eastern parts of Turkey still isolated
by lack of roads, but it is also extremely
difficult to persuade prospective young
teachers to live in the hinterland of
The conflict arises in the modern,
western - oriented student. Although
education, including university education, is free, the vast majority of students come from the upper class.
Children of lower class families must
usually assist in providing for the
family at a very early age. As a result
the potential teacher comes from the
Turkish affluent society. But these students are alienated from country life.
Several to whom I talked scarcely
knew Turkey outside their own home
towns, though most had travelled in
Europe. The country, the village, the
farms, to them were almost non-existent and were certainly not areas to
consider as the locality for their future
Turkish school children are further
handicapped by a lack of parental
support for continued education.
When we questioned some parents
they were quite frank in stating that
they did not consider much education
necessary since their children would
take over the farm, and girls, in particular, would marry regardless.
Hinterland conservatism is strong.
One cannot change a way of life
simply by passing laws. The people
must change slowly as well as adjust
to and accept new ideas. It will be
some time before traditional customs
disappear; some time also before women accept their role as equals; some
time before girls of fourteen and fifteen realize that they are too young to
become wives and mothers.
On the other hand the emphasis
placed on foreign languages in Turkey
is interesting and revealing. Competence in the languages of the leading
countries of the world is vital for Turkey as a growing nation. By the time a
Turkish student reaches the secondary
school level he may enter a high school
which teaches all subjects, except Turkish and the social sciences, in English
or French. Again and again we were
impressed and humbled at the remarkable proficiency in English, French and
often German demonstrated by the
students we met.
The actual seminar ended in Istanbul on July 31. We then had three
weeks free time to travel in Europe
and the Middle East. Now, in Canada,
all former participants are looking forward to welcoming two delegates from
each country that has been visited
during the past 18 summers. They will
compose the next international summer seminar, to be held in Canada as
part of the centennial activities. □
19 Dear Editor
"To learn and study"
May I express unqualified disagreement with a recent article in your
valued pages, entitled 'The Vast Silent
Campus Society.' The writer deplores
the type of student who is "alienated
from the social structure on campus,"
the student who "doesn't march in
protest, sit through speeches, or soapbox in anger."
A student of this kind is quoted:
"I'm out here to get an education, of
course, but ultimately I have to graduate. Society says I need that little
piece of paper, that diploma, if I want
to advance. What does society care, if
I spend five years out here without
getting my degree? Sure I would like
to be involved. I see it as being an
essential part of my education but
society sees it a little differently." An
accompanying illustration shows a personable young man deeply engrossed
in half a dozen books, with the caption, "I'm here to learn and study."
The reader is invited to look on him
with something between pity and
It might be remembered that the
society in which we live, between the
Rockies and the Pacific, is of very recent growth. The history of Vancouver
is comprehended within the actual
memory of some residents still living.
Our educational system is still haphazard. Students of considerable potential ability often arrive on campus
ill prepared, through no particular
fault of their own or on the part of
society. The UBC tradition has been to
make good these defects by hard work
and close attention, on the part of all
concerned, in the hope that our graduates in law, medicine, engineering and
the like would not be professionally
inept; that our students could appear
in Harvard, Oxford or Toronto without feeling inferior; that men and women with a degree from UBC would
in time be welcomed everywhere into
positions of responsibility because of
the  reputation   of  their   predecessors.
These hopes have been fulfilled, and
chiefly by students who took the view,
"I'm here to learn and study."
But all this is marginal to the more
fundamental fact that to immerse oneself in the world of ideas and forms is
a supreme pleasure. The student who
is holding a dialogue with Heine,
Moliere, Shakespeare or Dante; who is
gone into the crystal world of mathematics; who knows the joy of an informed appreciation of one of the fine
arts; who is pressing on to achieve
mastery of his chosen profession:—
need we award him our pity and contempt if he "doesn't march in protest,
sit through speeches, or soap-box in
anger"? History is full of exemplars of
the great principle of withdrawal and
return. One thinks of Milton, self-
immured in Cambridge, later in

This student later became Latin secretary to Cromwell's council of state,
an exponent of parliamentary government and unlicensed printing, and the
author of Paradise Lost, which during
the past decade has probably provoked
more critical response than any other
work of English literature. He had
grasped the fact that there is a time
and place for everything and that a
university affords time and place to
read, mark, learn and inwardly digest.
The motto of this University—
Tuum est—puts a nice emphasis on
individuality. Alienated from the social
structure on campus, a student may
find himself released into the pleasures
of conversation, the rewards of friendship, the happiness of sharing an in
tellectual interest with someone like-
minded in a living exchange of ideas.
He may well achieve intellectual maturity without feeling a need to sit
through speeches, to soap-box (I must
thank Mr. Morris for this new verb) in
anger, or to march in automated

Their neighbours were the Lefevres
who had the same year built the ori-
ginal part of the former Graham house,
now the School of Social Work.
Friends in the city came to visit by car
or taxi or by street car to Alma and
4th Avenue, there to be met by the
Davis car and chauffeur and driven
through miles of bushland to
'Kanabla' remained in Davis hands
until 1939. A son, his wife and their
two boys shared the home with the
older couple for a number of years
after World War I, and both couples
were part of the society set of their
day. The house, we are told by one
who knew it well, was furnished with
elegance, its conservatory "was fragrant with exotic flowers and  plants,
and the walls throughout the house
might have been a picture gallery."
The library housed one of the finest
private law book collections in Canada.
Now it was 1939, the senior Davises
had both died, the younger couple had
moved to a home of their own some
years previously, and 'Kanabla' was up
for sale. It was offered to the University, but the University had no funds
to avail itself of the offer. "Finally. . .
this magnificent mansion, with its
lawns, its tennis court and its squash
court was sold for $9,000 to a recent
arrival from Europe, a Mrs. Sweitzer."
On Mrs. Sweitzer's death the house
was again offered to the University,
again the University did not act, and

Park" — a gracious home in its second
it was purchased by Senator S. S. McKeen who re-named it 'Yorkeen.' After
some years he found it too large and
sold it to St. Mark's College which
held it only briefly before offering it
to the University. On this, the third
time round, the University took up the
offer and acquired the property, for
something like ten times the asking
price of 1939—the usual tale of these
later years.
On this third occasion as on the previous two there was no money in the
budget for the purchase, but somehow
the University financed the deal—it
was unthinkable that the opportunity
should be missed once more—and a
little later good friends came forward
to reimburse the University for its
initial outlay and for the very considerable alterations and renovations
that were necessary. These friends were
Dr. and Mrs. Cecil Green.
Dr. Green was an engineering student at UBC from 1918 to 1921 and
received his bachelor and master's
science degrees in engineering at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In 1964 he received an honorary
doctorate in science at UBC.
'Kanabla,' with its original lovely
wood panelling, its crystal chandeliers,
its windows looking out on the sea, its
terraces and beautiful fireplaces, has
been renamed Cecil Green Park in
honour of the couple who have made
it possible for the University and its
friends to enjoy all this.
Cecil Green Park is now home to
various University and University related activities. On the second and
third floors are the offices of the Alumni Association and Alumni Annual
Giving (integrated once more), of the
University Resources Committee and
the 3-Universities Capital Fund. On
the second floor also is the Board
Room, its furnishings the gift of two
loyal alumni, Robert S. Coleman, BASc
'46, and Sidney Coleman, BA '56. In
the basement are the activity rooms of
the Faculty Women's Club. This club
has taken under its wing the Student
Wives Association and made space
available to them.
The main floor rooms are being retained as a town-and-gown centre,
available for booking by any group. In
the centre is a spacious lounge, on one
hand the dining-room capable of seating 40, on the other the former drawing-room, now fitted up for discussion
groups, seminars and similar activities.
Catering must be arranged by the
groups using the centre.
As if this were not enough, there is
also a squash court and a squash club
open for an annual memberhip of
Cecil Green Park is now in full
swing as a town-and-gown centre.
Official opening will take place at a
later date when Dr. and Mrs. Green
can be present.
With all the varied uses to which
Cecil Green Park is being put a major
one will be to serve as a homecoming
centre for alumni returning to campus
or to Vancouver from elsewhere. No
longer are alumni limited to an annual
Homecoming; they have now a centre
on campus for daily use.

"Tn the early days the Letters Club
-■- archives were the best source in the
UBC library to read on the modern
That is quite a claim to be made for
a small club which limits its membership to a total of twenty third-and
fourth-year students, a reflection too
on the paucity of resources in UBC's
library during its early years.
The remark was made by the late
Professor Thorleif Larsen of the English department, and he knew.
The Letters Club was Professor Larsen's baby. He founded it in 1920 and
continued as Faculty Critic for twenty-
five years. The members became so
fond of it that as alumni they continued coming to the regular monthly
meetings, necessitating, eventually, a
change in the constitution forbidding
them. A way around this difficulty for
some alumni was to act as hosts to the
Club, for it always meets in private
homes. If that is not actually part of
the constitution, it is an unwritten
Professor Thorleif Larsen
The key feature of the Club is that
every fourth-year member must present a paper to a meeting on a literary
topic approved by the Faculty Critic.
It then becomes subject to the criticism not only of the Critic but of the
nineteen other members of the Club
who are among the brightest students
on campus in literary matters. Those
essays are likely to represent far more
hours of work than are given to any
mere classroom assignment!
A run through the programs of the
first two decades of the Club show that
strong tendency, noted by Professor
Larsen, to deal with the moderns.
Papers on such literary greats as Joseph
Conrad, J. M. Barrie, John Galsworthy,
were presented. "Feminism in 19th
Century English Literature" received
A number of club alumni have
joined UBC's English department at
one time or another, people like Dr.
Roy Daniells, Dr. Earle Birney, Dr. E.
Morrison, Dr. W. Robbins, Mr. and
Mrs. Hunter Lewis, Mrs. Sally Creighton.
Some of these have made names in
literature, and other fellow club members have joined them in that field.
There are Arthur Mayse; Wilfred
Watson whose 'Friday's Child' won
the Governor-General's award; Lister
Sinclair, poet, critic, dramatist, who
was in every spring play at UBC;
Lionel Stevenson; Carol Coates, poet
(the Letters Club made her a poet—
she wrote her first poem in order to
qualify to attend the Original Contributions night).
Others became journalists of international fame: Patrick Keatley of the
Manchester Guardian; the late Margaret Ecker Francis; Shinobu Higashi,
a native-born Japanese who went into
newspaper work in Japan and was
running a paper in Manchuria when
the Russians swept in and swept him
off to four years' imprisoment in
Siberia; Pierre Berton; D'Arcy Marsh.
And Letters Club alumni are among
the notables in many other fields. Dr.
Arthur Geoffrey Bruun, charter member and poet, became a world authority on the Napoleonic era. J. V. (Jack)
Clyne, after a brilliant career in the
legal profession, now heads MacMillan Bloedel. Norman Robertson, who
was a Rhodes scholar as well as Letters
Club alumnus, lectured at Harvard
before being drafted by MacKenzie
King for the Department of External
Affairs. Kaye Lamb, Dominion archivist and parliamentary librarian, was
another of King's appointees. Dr. Alfred Rive, who became ambassador to
Ireland,, is a name not to be forgotten.
"There are probably a dozen or more
other Letters Club alumni scattered
across the continent in the universities
of Canada and the United States,"
said Professor Larsen, summing up the
whole matter, and that was in 1956.
He would probably have added more
names in this year of grace 1967.
To talk about the Letters Club is
necessarily to be a namedropper. For
the names which should have been
included in this recital of 'greats' and
are not, the writer apologizes.

25 Class of '67
The class of '67 graduates from
the Macdonald era—the years of
education action, marches, and the
third trek.
In the past four or five years—the
years since University President John
B. Macdonald's milestone report on
higher education—the focus of student
activity has been education: its role in
the community and the student's role
in the university.
The Macdonald Report, a tuition fee
increase, and a growing concern over
crowded facilities culminated in the
third Great Trek, in March 1963.
Thousands of students paraded downtown and stumped throughout the
province, gathering 232,000 signatures
to support their new president's program.
The years since have been coloured
with an increasing student responsibility toward higher education: from
seminars to soapboxing, from 'action
weeks' to a campaign for student representation on the University senate.
In the Macdonald years, the Class of
'67 has seen a change in student traditions and the switch to the space-age
campus: computers now admit one to
the University and arrange a date for
the next weekend.
These were the years of Sir Ouvry's
Army and his bunwagon-cum-ambu-
lance (whatever became of Fuster's?);
the years of radar traps and receding
parking lots; the era in which we
finally escaped the evils of compulsory
PE (remember ballroom dancing?).
The cost of education soared—the inflationary trends even reached the
kitchens of the commissary where the
price of the traditional morning sticky-
bun skyrocketed.
We've seen the crew-cut, button-
down Ivy League look give way to the
Carnaby Street mods. Freshmen will
never again know the thirst-quenching intimacies of The Georgia—now
it's the Fraser Arms, or maybe the
Duff or the Dev.
There are so many grads in each
class now that it takes three full days
and a new forum (the Memorial Gym)
to pass them from the ivy-covered halls
to the cruel world.
The Class of '67 remembers the Tea
cup Game, the chariot and the boat
races; the smallpox scare of '63; The
Bitter Ash (Larry Kent's debut into the
world of celluloid and controversy);
the Engineers smashing the statues
they made themselves; Mardi Gras and
Homecoming; Dietrich Luth on the
library soapbox.
There were victories: the Ubyssey
was named the best college paper in
Canada for six years straight; Lynn
Galbraith, the '62 Homecoming
Queen, was named Miss Football
USA; Musa Lincke became queen of
the Canadian Winter Carnival; Father
David Bauer's hockey team and the
rowing crew took UBC colours to international fame in the Olympics; and
the Non-Conforming Calathumpiums
claimed the greatest victory of all—
they lost magnificently every campaign
for student office they entered.
The Class of '67 leaves for the future
the new traditions that have been
established in their years: the midterm break; a new student union
building and a new stadium; SFA—
Simon Fraser Academy, a home-grown
rival; a new dentistry faculty and a
new arts program; and a new president.
It's fitting that the man who was
the new president when this year's
graduates first came to UBC—Dr.
Macdonald—will be the honorary grad
class president. Dr. Macdonald will
officiate   at  the   grad   class   functions
during Convocation Week, along with
the '67 grad class council, who are:
President: Bert McKinnon, Law, 702-
2151 W. 39th Ave., 263-8518; vice-

Engineering, 21-1304 Jervis St., 681-
5826; P.R.O.: Roger Poole, Engineering, 811 W. 10th Ave., 879-3482.
The schedule of events for grads is:
May 30—Tree planting ceremony.
May 30—Baccalaureate Service, Brock
May 31, June 1, 2—Congregation.
June 2—Grad Class Ball, Hotel Vancouver.

Kerr named
Hamber Professor
Dr. Robert B. Kerr
Last year Mrs. Eric W. Hamber endowed the University with a $500,000
trust fund, as a memorial to her late
husband, the Hon. Eric W. Hamber.
The purpose of the fund is to support
a professorship or chair in the Faculty
of Medicine at UBC, the first such
endowment to be received by this
Now   Dr.    Robert   Bews   Kerr,   a
founding member of UBC's Faculty of
Fund bequeathed
for Women
The special financial problems of
women students were recognized in
the will of the late Mary Jane Murrin,
widow of the late W. G. Murrin. By
the terms of the will the University
has been bequeathed a $60,000 fund to
provide "annual bursaries for worthy
and able women students who cannot
continue their university education
without financial aid."
Mr. Murrin was a member of the
UBC Board of Governors from 1940
to 1957 and on his retirement was
awarded an honorary degree in law by
the University.
Students to receive the Mary Jane
Murrin bursaries will be chosen by the
Joint Faculty Committee on Prizes,
Scholarships and Bursaries.
Medicine, has been named the first
Eric W. Hamber professor of medicine,
his appointment effective as of July 1,
After serving with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps in WW II,
Dr. Kerr became senior demonstrator
in the department of medicine at the
University of Toronto from 1945 to
1947, and then assistant (later associate) professor and head of the department of therapeutics until he came
to UBC in 1950.
Dean of Medicine J. F. McCreary,
commenting on Dr. Kerr's appointment, said: "Now that construction is
underway of the health science centre,
the problem of increasing our proportion of medical teachers who are full-
time faculty members is becoming
more and more pressing. Fully supported endowments of this kind are
very important in attracting outstanding medical teachers and researchers
by providing financial resources beyond those ordinarily available to the
medical school."
Education Clinic
Research is not the first thing that
comes to mind when one thinks of the
Faculty of Education, but very active
and very important research is going
on there, nevertheless. Take the Education Clinic.
Dr. Robin Smith, professor of education psychology and director of the
clinic, says it has been estimated that
between 10 and 20 per cent of Canadian school children have learning difficulties of one kind or another. The
teacher dealing with a large class of
normal—and restless—children has to
be able to spot the three or four or
five who have special problems.
The Education Clinic does several
things. First, it conducts research into
the various sorts of learning difficulties
and into methods of overcoming them.
It trains specialists who will eventually
be employed by school boards to set up
smaller clinics to deal with these special problems and to give guidance to
parents and teachers. It serves as a
demonstration centre for undergraduate students to introduce them to some
of the educational problems they may
encounter when they begin their
teaching careers. Observation units behind one-way glass enables as many as
70 students at a time to watch a
demonstration, unseen by the children.
And finally, a number of children,
referred by the Vancouver and New
Westminster school boards, are helped
in their difficulties by the clinic. It is
not, however, primarily a service clinic;
its main function is to train specialists
who will one day be scattered throughout the province, putting the benefits
of this research within the reach of all
British Columbia's children.

Singapore and UBC
conduct Study
An overseas student who took his
master of arts degree in political science at this university and a UBC
professor are collaborating in a research study on the political development of two Malaysian states. The fact
that they are working 8,000 miles apart
is no hindrance whatever, they say.
The UBC alumnus in the team is
Professor K. J. Ratnam, now head of
the political science department of the
University of Singapore, and Professor
R. S. Milne, head of the same department at UBC.
Specifically, the two researchers,
with a $6,500 grant from the Asia
Foundation, are analyzing the political
development of Sabah, formerly North
Borneo, and Sarawak. These are two of
the 13 states which make up the
Malaysian Federation, formed in 1963.
The grant from the Asia Foundation
will be used largely to defray travel
expenses in the area and for research
and translation services by graduate
students at the University of Singapore.
This present project grew out of a
previous study made jointly by Professors Milne and Ratnam on the 1964
general election in Malaya, a study
which resulted in a book to be pub
lished this year. Now they have
reached the planning stage on a second
book which they hope to begin writing
in the summer of 1969. This will not be
done entirely at long distance; they expect to get together. And once again
Kipling has been proved wrong.
Bursaries allowed
for athletes
It may be contrary to a widely-held
belief but the athlete is not the forgotten man under University Senate
regulations. Present regulations do
make it possible for donors to establish
scholarships and bursaries specifically
for students who combine merit and
participation in a branch or branches
of athletics with sound academic
standing. This should be good hearing
for the many alumni with a keen continuing interest in sports at UBC.
Academic standing is still the major
criterion and an award winner who
falls below the required standing will
forfeit the award, whereas if he must
cease participation in sport in order to
maintain his academic standing, he
does not forfeit the award.
While awards may be made for particular sports, Senate policy does not

What's In It For Me, They Keep Asking
IT'S A QUESTION which may not be viable (viable . . .
a good IN word this week) as a complete philosophy for
living, but it has its uses, not always entirely crass. For
instance, when people subscribe to and read a newspaper
they quite rightly do so because it provides something for
THEM, each and every one. Until computers start turning
out people, people will continue to differ from each other
in tastes and attitudes in a most disorderly and human
way and The Sun will keep right on being a paper in which
as many as possible find what they want.
