Tim Hollick-Kenyon, BA'51, BSW'53 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 10yearsago. Use Long Distance
for all it's worth!

r I ^HIS spring the members of Convocation will elect a Chancellor to succeed Phyllis
Gregory Ross (B.A., 1925) who has served with such distinction since 1961. There
are two candidates for the office, John Murdoch Buchanan (B.A., 1917) and Randall K.
Enomoto (B.A., 1965). Simultaneously, the same voters will choose fifteen members of
Senate from twenty-six candidates.
The situation facing the electorate is unique, not because there are two candidates (this
has happened before) but because now for the first time an aspirant to the University's
highest office is conducting a vigorous campaign.
Traditionally, the Chancellor of the University, along with the Chancellors of other
Canadian universities, has been a prominent citizen with a record of eminent service to
the University, the community, the province, and the nation. The Chancellor is the
University's titular head. He presides on ceremonial occasions, such as Congregation, he
bestows degrees, he sits on the Board of Governors and some of its committees, he represents
in his person the full authority and dignity of the institution. Often, thanks to his known
reputation, he is able to ease problems and to effect immeasurable benefits for the University. The tradition is an honourable one and worthy of preservation.
The members of the Executive of the Alumni Association have weighed the issues carefully and have concluded that they must, in the vital interests of the University, urge all
Alumni to support John Buchanan.
The Association, of course, can understand the desire of the students to participate in
the making of policy at their University. After all, the active members of the Association
were once themselves active students. We do not, however, believe that the office of Chancellor is an appropriate goal for the students' ambitions.
John Buchanan embodies all the qualities to which we have, happily, become accustomed
in a Chancellor. He belongs in the company of those citizens who have preceded him in
the University's senior Chair and who form the subject of an article elsewhere in this
We once more ask our members to carry out their responsibilities: to consider the well-
being of the University and to vote.

5 Our Chancellors - 1912-1966
In May the Convocation of The University of British Columbia elects its
seventh chancellor. This seems an appropriate time, therefore, for the Chronicle to bring before its readers a reminder of the six people who have already
occupied the post of titular head of this
University. Here are their pictures accompanied by a necessarily brief reference to each which attempts to indicate in the space of a few lines the
special contribution that each made to
the University.
The  Hon.   Francis   L.   Carter-Cotton,
MLA. Chancellor 1912-1918.
Mr. Carter-Cotton, who already held
the office of Chancellor of McGill
University College of British Columbia, was elected UBC Chancellor in
August 1912 by a majority vote of the
739 registered members of Convocation.
"Few men have been more actively
concerned with public affairs in British
Columbia during the last quarter of a
century than Mr. Carter-Cotton." —
British Columbia from the earliest
times to the present.
A gold medallist in Medicine at McGill with an established reputation as
a surgeon throughout Canada, Dr. McKechnie was elected a member of the
first Senate and was appointed to the
first Board of Governors of U.B.C. in
1913. He was elected chancellor in succession to Mr. Carter-Cotton in April
1918. He died in harness, 26 years later.
At the funeral service, held in Christ
Church Cathedral, Vancouver, on May
27, 1944, President Klinck said of him:
"He was gentle in disposition, constant
in friendship, wise in counsel, tireless
in devotion to duty."
Robert E. McKechnie, CBE, MD, CM,
LLD, FACS, FRCS (Can.). Chancellor
1918 -1944.
The Hon. Eric Werge Hamber, CMG,
BA, LLD. Chancellor 1944-1951.
"It was the responsibility of Chancellor Hamber, with the newly-appointed
president, Dr. Norman MacKenzie, to
guide the University through the postwar period—the period of its greatest
expansion, its largest enrolment, and,
to date, its most outstanding contribut-
tion in service to the youth of the province."—Sherwood Lett, in the UBC
Alumni Chronicle, Winter 1957.
"It is difficult to think of any Canadian in public life today who has a greater record of service and accomplishment
than Sherwood Lett, as lawyer, soldier
and scholar, he has, throughout his
career given without stint of his time
and energy in unselfish service to his
country and community."—The Hon.
Mr. Justice Arthur E. Lord, in the UBC
Alumni Chronicle, Autumn 1954."
The Hon. Chief Justice Sherwood Lett,
Chancellor 1951 -1957.
Of Chancellor Grauer Alumni President Mark Collins said: "It is significant that the highly successful Development Fund Campaign was initiated
and conducted under his leadership."
"His deep faith in the worth of the
individual, his warm and compelling
confidence, and his superb faculty for
unobtrusive leadership have kept him a
delightful and approachable man
known to hundreds simply as 'Dal'."—
Lawrence B. Jack and Richard M. Bibbs,
UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring 1957.
Dal Grauer's second term of office
was terminated tragically by his death
on July 28, 1961. Albert   E.   (Dal)   Grauer,   BA,   PhD,
LLD  Chancellor 1957-1961.
Dr. Phyllis Ross was already well
known to UBC as well as to the people
of the province when elected to the
chancellorship on November 28, 1961.
She had been one of Canada's top
administrators; as wife of the Lieutenant-Governor she had been First
Lady of British Columbia; and she
had been a member of the Board of
In the intervening years she has
adorned the office of chancellor by her
intimate knowledge of university affairs, and by her devotion to the interests of faculty, fellow-alumni and students.

The Senate is also the body responsible for determining which members
of the teaching and administrative staffs
shall be members of each Faculty; for
the preparation of a calendar; for af
filiation with other institutions of learning, and other matters.
Membership of the Senate is quite
diverse in orgin, with a number of members sitting ex officio, others elected by
various groups as provided for in the
Universities Act, including the fifteen
members shortly to be elected by Convocation.

Alumni Association
Fifty years ago last September the founders of our Association began their careers as students of The University of
British Columbia. Their university home was the Fairview
shacks in Vancouver and the great challenge they faced was
to secure more adequate facilities for the University. One result was the Great Trek. From that time until now the
strength of UBC has been in the consistent application of its
motto "Tuum Est."
Shacks, when we come to think of it, have played an important part in the history of UBC. At another major stage
of its development the army shacks, or huts, "borrowed" by
Dr. Norman MacKenzie and Dr. Shrum made possible UBC's
remarkable growth after WW II.
The history of the Association is now being written and
will be published before the end of this golden anniversary
year. It is a history worth the writing—interesting, always
challenging and successful. Now UBC's youthful period has
ended; the next half century promises even more challenge
and more opportunity for her alumni.
Our Association, representing over thirty thousand graduates of UBC, has carried on a wide range of activities during
its short fifty-year existence.
It is hard to realize that fifty years hence—in the year 2016,
the end of the University's first century—UBC will probably
have produced in excess of 200,000 graduates. The 1966 grad
class alone will add some 3100 alumni to the rolls. Clearly
the challenge of numbers, of space requirements and of excellence will continue for years to come.
We have here a pattern of growth that is being repeated
all across the country. With this in mind I raise some questions for future consideration by the Alumni Association.
Should the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) create within that organization an "Auditor
General Group" of qualified persons to appraise the uses to
which the many millions of dollars now being expended on
universities are put? The purpose of such a body would not
be to inhibit the university programs, but rather to assure the
public and the governments that these monies are being
carefully husbanded and the expenditures wisely made.
What new responsibilities does UBC's Alumni Association
have for the future? Should a national alumni association
be created to focus the views of thousands of Canadian universities' alumni upon national issues?
The most pressing immediate need of the universities is to
obtain recognition and acceptance by government of formula
financing. In essence this means recognition of the reasonable
and simple proposition that the cost per student for a PhD
is substantially higher than the cost for a first year Arts student. A formula based on that premise has been recommended
by the Bladen Commission and has been partially recognized
to date by the Federal Government.
In considering the urgency of some such financing program it is well to appreciate that for many years universities
in Canada have been able to look to other countries for
faculty members, but that now the same desperate shortage
of university faculty is general. Henceforth Canada must
supply her own needs. We are far from that goal at present.
In 1965 our country's total output of PhD's was less than 500.
The projected needs for highly trained specialists, particularly
for university faculty, are immense. How are these needs of
the country and of the universities to be met? Chiefly, from
the graduate schools of our own universities. It is imperative
therefore that graduate schools be developed vigorously, and
for this purpose that the principle of formula financing be
recognized, accepted and implemented.

View from the steps of the library in 1927.
Growing Pains of yesteryear
by Elizabeth Blanche Norcross
T>ack in 1920 when the five year-old University of
-"-* British Columbia lured Frank E. Buck away from the
Dominion Government, it got a two-in-one bargain—a
professor of horticulture and a landscape architect. The
lure was itself two-fold—a milder climate than Ottawa's
and the challenge of shaping a raw campus.
"The difficulties Simon Fraser has to meet in landscaping
on Burnaby mountain are nothing compared with the ones
we faced out here at Point Grey," says Professor Buck who
can produce an extensive photographic record to back up
that statement.
At the time UBC acquired his services English-born and
educated Frank Buck was in charge of landscaping for all
Dominion experimental farms. The terrain with which he
had to deal in his new job was swampy where it was not
stony. Clearing operations had left deep water-filled holes
where the giant stumps had been dynamited. The skeleton
of the Science Building, erected six years earlier, was all the
physical promise to be seen of a university on the Point
Grey site.
It was to be another six years before an ornamental tree
or shrub or strip of lawn could be set out to relieve the
desolation of the campus site, but Professor Buck was
ready with "instant gardens" when the time came. In his
horticultural gardens at the south end he had prepared a
stock of trees and shrubs. With no money for purchases he
had acquired through gifts a good quantity of well-grown
nursery stock, so that there were fairly mature trees available for planting in 1926. Where gifts failed, he had grown
stock from seed. The sequoia at the corner of the library
steps was one of these.
Professor Buck was as ready as a man could be with
lawns, too. Every lawn area, as he foresaw, would have to
be given at least three or four inches of topsoil before it
could be successfully seeded. To provide this he had used
those years between 1920 and 1926 to build up great heaps
of good soil by layering sod from wherever he could obtain
it with manure from Agriculture's barns. The students of
the day learned the method from Professor Buck's practical
Landscaping included laying out the campus roads, and
Professor Buck graded them all, with the late John Lee,
responsible for the asphalt topping. His landscaping work
also took him off the campus proper when he did the planting on University Boulevard, the access road designed by
Dr. Ernest A. Cleveland.
A stroll around the core campus shows how much of
Professor Buck's work remains in spite of new buildings
and parking lots. The library lawn has those gentle banks
against which students recline during sunny noon-hours
because Frank Buck planned it that way for them. The
formal pool which he placed in front of the building is in
the Italian tradition; his informal plantings in the "wings"
belong to the English. Incidentally, the pool in the north
wing is formed by natural drainage; the campus was pitted
with such pools before it came under the architect's hand.

Agricultural Undergraduate Society in  1949—the year of
1 1 Growing Pains
Burning the stump of one of the original forest giants.
Professor Buck's retirement—placed a fountain marker at
the edge of the lily pond.
There are many other evidences of Professor Buck's work
in the core campus, for basically it is his. Main Mall, for
instance, was once a ridge which he cut down by six feet,
using his gains as fill for the swampy ground that became
the stadium playing field. Mature trees being removed today from one site—to make room for a new building—and
transplanted to another were originally set out by him. The
plaques set about the flagpole which tell the story of the
University from its incorporation in 1908 to 1947-48 are his
gift, and another is now in preparation to bring the story
up to date. The unequalled history of student giving to the
University he has memorialized in the plaques set into the
great glacial boulder and marker on East Mall, opposite
Brock Hall.
A 10-year-old maple tree grown in the nursery is transplanted.
The present flagpole, by the way, is a rather meagre
substitute for the noble spar the University almost had. At
the time the move was being made to West Point Grey the
forest industry gave the University a pole approximately
212 feet in length, just a few feet short of the Kew Gardens
pole. It cost the donors $5000 merely to bring it to the
campus. Unfortunately a fault was found near the top of
the pole, and instead of it being reinforced in some way,
perhaps by a steel rod, it was discarded.
A tour of the campus with Professor Frank E. Buck is a
tour through the University's history, and these are but a
few of the highlights.
At ninety-one Professor Buck is still a frequent visitor to
the campus, still vitally interested in the University to
which he came more than forty-five years ago.

13 "Jack Lee-One of the "Originals"
On December 27 last John David
Lee died, and the University lost
not only a link with its earliest days
but one of its most devoted servants.
Irish-born John Lee was a young
lad when he first started to work for
the University in 1912 as an assistant
carpenter. After service with the army
engineers from 1916 to 1918 he was
asked by President Wesbrook to rejoin
the staff, and from that point until his
retirement in 1955 all his working life
was given to UBC. In fact, his services
did not end with retirement for he
continued in a consultant capacity for
three more years.
On the University's removal to the
Point Grey campus in 1925 John Lee
moved with it and began a close
association with Professor Frank E.
Buck who, along with his teaching
duties, was responsible for campus
landscaping. When Professor Buck had
graded the roads, Mr. Lee took over
and supervised the asphalt topping.
When the Professor had designed the
old Main Mall bus stop, Mr. Lee built
"He got along extremely well with
both the administration and his men,"
Professor Buck recalls, "and he was
always very helpful in looking after
any jobs the professors might want
done." Those jobs might include the
building of cupboards or counters or
the painting of them.
In 1930 Mr. Lee was appointed
Superintendent of Buildings.
After WW II the Superintendent's
responsibilities became very far-reaching indeed. On Little Mountain and
on Lulu Island student veterans and
their  families  were  housed   in   army
huts, and John Lee had to see to the
care and maintenance of those huts.
In 1947-48 a crash program known
as "emergency housing" was carried
through and the white huts were built,
some on Main Mall, some in the
orchard. Part of this work was let out
to contractors but most of it was
supervised by Mr. Lee, using hourly
John D. Lee
With so much frame construction
on campus there were fires, and
Buildings and Grounds performed
miracles in replacing almost overnight
lost accommodation.
From President Emeritus N.A.M.
MacKenzie has come the following
"Jack Lee was one of 'the originals'
and he lived with and worked for the
University during all of the difficult
years which were the result of WW I,
the depression, and WW II. When I
came to UBC Jack was Superintendent
of Buildings and Grounds, with a very
small but most efficient and competent
staff working under him. The full time
winter session student body in 1944
was about 2400 and our facilities were
inadequate for that number. Within
2I/2 years this number had increased
to 9400. Most of the burden of providing the additional accommodation and
services fell on Jack Lee and his staff,
with the most able assistance of
Gordon Shrum and some others of our
senior colleagues.
"Jack worked literally day and night,
and nothing was too difficult, too
demanding or impossible for him. As
for example, when all five huts in
which Home Economics and their
excellent equipment were housed were
burned down one night, Jack Lee and
Walter Gage had things organized at
10 o'clock next morning for these
students, and Jack supervised the
building of their present quarters in
record time so that within a matter of
months their building was complete
and in use.
"Jack loved UBC and was proud of
his association with the students and
faculty. We shall miss him greatly,
but the success of our post-war program for veteran students is a fine
and permanent memorial to all that he
did to make that possible."
In April 1956 the Faculty Association
made Mr. Lee an honorary member.
He is survived by his wife, the former Marion E. E. Falls, BA '33, and a
son, John, a student in the Faculty of
14 Professor C. L. Emery
by Charles L. Emery
"Graduate training in mining engineering and research into mining are all
but non-existent in Canada today."
I made that statement just one year
ago. At that time three Canadian universities, of which UBC is one, were
working out a co-operative program,
between themselves and with the
Government and the mineral industry,
to deal with the problem. This academic year now just closing has seen
the plan in operation.
The Tri-University project was conceived to develop a new approach to
the education of engineers for the
mineral industry. The approach, it was
realized, must develop new curricula
that will present and apply all of the
new technology that is available and
applicable and must also provide real
flexibility to permit broadening of outlook on the one hand and some extra
depth in selected areas on the other.
The new curricula must be attractive
to students and effective in industry.
How to effect this? A dynamic
faculty must be research based. Because engineering cannot be divorced
from industry and because we need
new knowledge and also graduates
who understand the knowledge we
must do research arid apply it in industry. To date departments of mining
engineering have not done research
and a large capital investment will be
required over a period of time in order
to establish research facilities and staff.
Because of staff shortages and the
financial aspects of research it seems
better to divide the effort between
several universities, and The University of British Columbia, Queen's University and Laval University are proposing a joint approach to the problem. For success there will be required
extensive co-operation among the universities, the Government of Canada
and the Canadian mineral industry.
In addition to financial support there
must be, as well as university education, summer employment for undergraduates and employment for graduates at all levels, planned to effectively
develop high quality engineers through
co-operative "on-the-job" training.
The total implementation of the
Tri-University Project will probably
proceed through the joint activities of
an academic committee and industrial
groups, each autonomous but agreeing
to co-operate.
The three universities will work together in co-operation with the mineral industry to substantially expand
and improve their graduate and undergraduate programs. Specific objectives
will include:
# Provision for adequate research
facilities and initiation of basic and
applied  research.
• The offering of graduate instruction at the most advanced level
• Continual revision of undergraduate courses as new knowledge becomes available. This will ensure a
challenging curriculum to students
of good quality.
• The study of problems both theoretical and applied which have potentials, either early or long term,
in the mineral industry.
0 Development   of   a   well-informed
faculty, capable of keeping abreast
of, and contributing to new knowledge and know-how.
To avoid unnecessary duplication of
expensive   facilities   while   promoting
the independent development of each
university, it is proposed that:
• The three participants will coordinate their individual plans of
instruction and research through
an academic committee of two representatives from each university.
• Interchange of faculty and students
in the graduate programs of the
three universities will be encouraged where such interchange can
be expected to benefit the students,
staff, or overall program.
• Each university will foster its graduate program to ensure, as far as
humanly possible, that it yields
enthusiastic and competent professional engineers.
• Co-operation will be sought from
the industry on the basis of a
national as well as a provincial interest. The three universities now
in the plan represent Canada geographically as well as ethnically.
• There may be other universities
interested in joining the project if
early indications of success become
As I have said, the plan is now in
operation, and though it is too soon to
draw conclusions, some hopeful developments may be noted. A substantial graduate program is already in
progress at two of the three schools,
and current curriculum changes have
resulted in increased undergraduate
In addition we see industrial support
swinging toward the plan, both in
financing and in co-operative summer
employment for students. The staff
potential has increased substantially in
the first year and the program is attracting applications for staff positions.
Several Canadians of note who have
been working in other countries are
now interested in returning to Canada.
The early results seem to warrant optimism for the future.

Is fit for treason, stratagems and spoils."
Fifty years of Mussoc in Review
by John L. Gray, BSA '39
A brief report on the UBC Musical
Society? Impossible, Madam Editor, particularly since I have had the
opportunity, of rummaging through
old  scrapbooks.
We Mussoc (affectionate abbreviation) alumni, and there are thousands
of us, have a special feeling for the
Society, oldest active club on the
campus and this year celebrating its
fiftieth anniversary.
Wish all of you could have looked
over my shoulder and soaked up the
nostalgia in the voluminous records
of press clippings, photographs, programs, ticket stubs, spanning half a
But the conductor alias editor is
rapping the baton on the podium. On
with the overture, opening the story of
one of Canada's most successful student musical organizations.
People are the story. It begins in
1916 when a little group of students
interested in music gathered in the old
Fairview shacks. Their enthusiasm
organized a campus musical society.
Professor E. H. Russell of the fledgling
university's mathematics department
was persuaded to serve as director.
The initial group was composed of
eight orchestra members and a handful of singers. In fifty years the group
has grown into an organization of
During February, 1917, with WW I
reaching decisive stages, the young
musicians embarked on their first
public concert in the Hotel Vancouver
to aid the Red Cross. Over the next
thirteen years the annual concert
became a regular feature.
In 1925, with the campus established
at Point Grey, the now mature and
active Musical Society hired C. Haydn
Williams as its director.
Here began an association that
lasted twenty-six years. Some time ago
Beverly Ann Wilson wrote of this key
figure in Society history:
"Beloved by his students and patrons
alike, Mr. Williams is well-known for
his excellent work in the Society . . .
with his jovial manner, and painstaking direction of rehearsals this lively
little conductor has given much of his
musicianship to the Society."
From 1925 to 1930, Mr. Williams
directed his singers and instrumentalists in annual concerts of opera
selections. Semi-monthly recitals with
guest artists were introduced.
Exuding kindliness, interest, and
humour, this unselfish man was always
ready to help his young people towards their goals—including the evolution of many a backstage romance.
The lovelorn prompted his whimsical
name for the club "the Musical and
Romantic Society."
His contribution to campus life was
recognized by the student body in
1949 when a special award was given
for his "invaluable service to UBC
Another honoured name in Society
annals is Dr. W. L. MacDonald, an
English professor. In 1930 he became
associated with the organization as
adviser and assistant musical director.
For many years he was honorary
president, and is presently an
honorary life member.
An historic event occurred in 1927
when orchestra member and trumpeter
Harold King wrote 'Hail UBC
The year 1930 introduced a new
policy. All musical groups were
brought together into one entity to
present the first full-length show, The
Garden of the Shah. Stars of the
initial production were Betty Smith,
Maysie Graham and Ed Horton. The
opera was a success, both artistically
and financially.
The Society was on its way. In the
next two decades the gay Gilbert and
Sullivan light operas were the bill of
fare. The Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S.
Pinafore, The Gondoliers, and Iolanthe
were each shown three times. Yeomen
of the Guard was twice presented, and
Ruddigore and the Mikado found
favour in single showings.
Interspersed with the G-S operas
were de Koven's Robin Hood in 1937
and 1948; Victor Herbert's Serenade,
1939, and German's Merrie England
and Tom Jones in 1946 and 1950.
Romberg's Student Prince, Friml's
Firefly and Herbert's Red Mill were
produced in the early fifties.
Two personalities long-identified
with the Musical Society are the late
E. V. Young and Dean Walter Gage.
It was 1934 when "E.V." joined the
Society as Dramatic Director. This
distinguished actor-director devoted
twenty years to the student organization. The Red Mill was his exit. He has
left a rich legacy of memories among
those privileged to associate with him.
Dean Gage, the perennial faculty
popularity leader among students, also
began his connection with the Society
in 1934. He brought a ready, sometimes acid wit along with a vigorous
competence to rehearsals. As assistant
dramatic director he excelled as a
morale builder, dispelling stage fright
and smoothing frayed tempers, especially on those justly feared "student
In the 1950-51 season a long-desired
objective was reached when two pro-
16 ductions were presented in the season:
Henry Purcell's serious opera Dido
and Aeneas, directed by J. Reeves, was
a successful "first" in the fall; the
ever-popular Gondoliers was an
equally successful spring show. It
marked the last appearance of
G. Haydn Williams as Musical
A radical departure from tradition
occurred in 1955 when the Musical
Society offered its first all-Canadian
operetta, Bonanza. The following year
there was a return to the traditional
with Maid of the Mountains.
Musical tastes change. Flexibility and versatility are requisites.
The Musical Society has usually been
in tune with the times and with its
audiences, and so in 1957 came the
revolution. A series of Broadway musicals began with a kick-off production
of the Gershwin classic, Girl Crazy.
Following its acclaim by critics the
next nine years saw success after
success run up with a Who's Who of
Broadway shows added to the repertoire. Show-goers have applauded
Mussoc productions of Call Me
Madam, The Boy Friend, Wonderful
Town, Damn Yankees, Once Upon a
Mattress, Bye Bye Birdie, L'il Abner,
Bells are Ringing, and Take Me Along.
Harry Pryce, well-known Vancouver
musician-conductor, took over as Musical Director in 1952, joined by Grace
McDonald, prominent dance teacher,
as choreographer. James Johnston,
distinguished as an actor-director, was
named dramatic director in 1956.
An unfortunate illness forcing the
retirement of Mr. Pryce in 1959, a new
director of exceptional competence
was hired in the person of Mr. Beverly
Mussoc Headquarters — Room 207.
And then there was backstage—a
magic place! Every Mussocer has a
treasured memory or two of the old
UBC auditorium, and of Room 207.
Here, in cramped quarters, was the
club office and social centre, doubling
as a dressing room and makeup room
during the productions. From its environs a friendly rivalry was carried
on with the Players Club, occupants
of the Green Room above.
The files of the Society yield a few
anecdotes that were not in the script.
There was the 1949 Iolanthe episode
when the fairy queen crowned the
forgiven Iolanthe with the coronet
upside-down. The points covered her
eyes and she finished her solo in the
dark. The 1933 production of the same
opera had given the audience an unexpected thrill when one of the fairies
became entangled with a huge tree in
the woodlands scene and trailed the
forest around the stage in a dance
The writer recalls a 1938 Yeoman of
the Guard show when the leading
tenor's garter became unfastened and
dropped down his leg in the middle of
his love duet with the lead soprano.
The thirties also enjoyed a memorable
moment when a dog strayed on to the
balcony. A lovers' duet became a trio
as the music-loving canine emitted
soulful moans at frequent intervals.
Also worthy of remembrance are the
naval officers' buttons in Pinafore
which were lettered, not 'RN' but
'CNR.' And there were other incidents
down the years, awful for the performers, a delight to student audiences.
How many names we could list of
alumni who have contributed to the
50-year success story of the Musical
Society! They all deserve mention, the
hundreds of people who have taken
leads, applied makeup, operated the
lights, sung in the chorus, built
scenery and props, taken tickets,
danced, worked on costumes, run the
business end.

In 1941, at the quarter-century
milestone, a music critic wrote of the
UBC Musical Society: "During this
time it has built up a reputation for
fine performances that is not surpassed by that of any other amateur

In 1965, on the eve of the fiftieth

18 It's a good question!
Are teaching assistants incompetent?
(reprinted from the
by Charlie Boylan
Charlie Boylan, BA '64
Freedom and ignorance make dangerous partners.
So say the five co-authors of Discipline and Discovery,
the controversial D & D report published last March.
My primary concern is how this report relates to the
present system of teaching freshman English at UBC. The
English department at UBC is the largest department of
any discipline at any university in Canada. Its teaching
staff of 132 persons is organized in an elaborate hierarchical
structure from the head of the department at the top down
to the teaching assistant at the bottom.
This structure is responsible for determining the course
content and teaching procedures affecting the more than
7,000 students enrolled in English, some thousands of them
in more than one course. They range in academic development from those in the 97 sections of freshman English to
those enrolled in the 12 graduate courses offered by the
English 100, the compulsory freshman course, is described by the D & D report as "an excellent one, providing
a stimulating introduction to the world of creativity." The
Report notes, however, that it is also the responsibility of
English 100 to teach the poorly equipped and trained B.C.
high school graduate how to write simple, coherent prose.
The report suggests the task is too great for English 100.
It proposes instead a core program for first year arts which
will demand a written assignment once a week, these
assignments to be spread over the whole faculty, with the
various faculty seminar instructors responsible for "correcting these assignments and explaining, where necessary,
what constitutes good composition."
The report then says: "It will also be an advantage that
all the instructors will be members of the Faculty and in no
case graduate assistants."
At present almost half, 43 out of 97 sections of the
freshman English course, is taught by graduate student
teaching assistants.
But is it fair to suggest that all T.A.'s are incompetent?
Yes! At least if you define competence as: (1) the fulfilment of certain academic qualifications, specifically a
master's degree, and (2) the opportunity to devote the
maximum working day to the task of teaching.
It is true, of course, that many T.A.'s are enthusiastic
and some are even good teachers, but this doesn't justify
the system. A medical intern might also be enthusiastic and
even competent, but one would be reluctant to force the
full responsibility of a doctor on him.
The University is growing larger and larger. There are
not enough qualified teachers to fill the demands now
made on the English department, and there is not enough
money to pay them even if they were available. The cost
above that presently incurred for T.A.'s of hiring an
additional fifteen staff members—to handle the 43 sections
of English 100 now taught by T.A.'s—would be
approximately $22,500.
But if the suggestions in the D & D Report were
followed, of making the whole faculty responsible for
teaching composition and of eliminating examinations,
both the needs of staff and the financing of M.A. programs
might be solved.
"Although the system does indeed bring out the best in
some students, for others it is a punishing ordeal that
induces feelings of panic and despair; and for everyone,
both student and instructor, this overwhelming emphasis
on the final examination distorts the process of learning."
(The Report.)
The report therefore recommends dispensing "with the
traditional Christmas and final examinations in favor of a
system of continual review . . . every student should be
allowed to pass despite his marks from the first to second
year on two conditions: that his attendance at lectures and
at discussion groups has been judged satisfactory; and that
he has completed all his written assignments."
By adopting the D & D report, the time and energy
would be available from the present faculty to teach an
equivalent of to-day's enrolment at UBC without having to
hire unqualified personnel in the guise of "teaching assistants." Also inherent in this solution for eliminating unqualified teachers is the solution to financing the M.A.
graduate program.
The English Department budget presently allows $77,400
to pay for its forty-three teaching assistants. Because the
department will be able to cope with the problem of teaching freshman English without T.A.'s under the D & D
recommendations, the money could be distributed into
forty-three $1,800 graduate student grants.
The money would be payable to a B.A. honors English
graduate on a one-year M.A. program at UBC. The grant
would be non-renewable. As a consequence, we would be
able to graduate qualified teachers at a much faster rate
than at present and hence be able to provide those qualified
teachers necessitated by an ever expanding enrolment.
19 The Henry Angus
View north from the Henry Angus penthouse.
Among other things Dr. Roderick Wong
studies the effect in rats of infantile
stimulation on learning.
Rat minds, human emotions and statistics are all being
studied and analyzed these days under one roof. That
roof covers the Henry Angus Building, most recently completed addition to UBC's campus, a building capable of
providing working space for over 2000 students and some
130 faculty.
The students are registered in courses in the Faculty of
Commerce and the social science departments of the
Faculty of Arts, that is in psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics and the Institute of
Industrial Relations.
The working space includes, besides such things as
regular classrooms and two large lecture theatres, facilities
like seminar rooms and study carrels for graduate students,
laboratories for the study, through one-way viewing glass,
of the behaviour of people, and laboratories for the study
of the behaviour of rats; two U-shaped classrooms with a
special seating arrangement to facilitate discussion in certain course work; a large workshop which makes equipment
to order for experimental work; a remote computer station,
a statistical centre for the social sciences, and so on, and on.
Designers of the Henry Angus Building are Thompson,
Berwick, Pratt & Partners. It is the first fully air-conditioned building on the campus, has a four-storey teaching
wing, an eight-storey office wing, and from the top of this
latter an incomparable view of the campus.
While it may be true, as one professor claims, that the
most photogenic items in the building are the secretaries,
the Chronicle photographer concentrated on some other
subjects that he thought might also be of interest to our

of the graduating class was certainly one of the most decisive and
interesting meetings that has come
along for some time. A petition
signed by one hundred engineers and
presented to the grad class council in
the first days of January sparked
considerable interest right then. It
asked for a general meeting as early as
possible. Purpose unknown. As it
turned out, the meeting was petitioned
because the engineers felt they had a
unique gift suggestion, and unique it
was. At the meeting Art Stevenson,
Engineering Undergraduate Society
president, presented the following

Engineers hereby resolve in our absolute and unfettered discretion that this
year's graduating class gift be unique
unto itself and thereby initiate a new
concept in graduating class gifts.
And whereas, it is recognized by the
campus as a whole that Engineers
traditionally are the leaders in revolutionary thought, action, and provocation, it is therefore natural and
fitting that the theme of this year's
gift originate from within the ranks
of the Engineering Undergraduate

that the concept of such a unique gift
must embody aesthetic appeal, historical significance, and patriotic fervour,

do hereby move that the gift of the
1966 Graduating Class of The University of British Columbia be given
in its   entirety   for   the   purpose   of
erecting a monument in the image of
our beloved and chaste patron saint,
Lady Godiva astride a white charger,
to be placed in front of the library."
Unfortunately for the Engineers, the
Grad Class vetoed this suggestion.
Their choice was also unique but less
biased—an eight-man rowing shell—
"Class of '66"—and a four-man
shell—"The Lady Godiva" (a conciliatory gesture towards the Engineers)—
with the balance of funds, about
$2,000, given to the CUSO-sponsored
Home for Indian Girls.

Dean Armstrong sees two major
problems facing engineering training
in Canada—the low number of graduates and the necessity to develop
systems to continue the training of
graduate engineers and to retrain
those in areas that grow obsolete.
"Industry, the universities and practising engineers agree on the need for
retraining," the Dean says, "but so
far there is little evidence of achievement in this area." He sees no
possibility of the shortage of engineers
being eased during the next decade.

Now they've got the computer predicting tree growth for a century

7040 computer, can "grow" a 100-
year-old stand of timber in 13 minutes. The programs, taking into
account most of the known factors
affecting tree growth, are loaded into
the computer. The machine then studies the growth of individual trees to
determine how various programs of
thinning and replanting will affect
growth rates and yields at different
The research using mathematical
models to predict forest growth was
initiated as an extra-mural research
project for the Canada department of
forestry in 1963. Its object is to help
the forest industry to make decisions
about planting, replanting, thinning,
and so forth.

Associate dean for
Faculty of Medicine
The editor for the last five years of
the "Canadian Medical Association
Journal" has joined UBC's faculty as
Associate Dean of Medicine.
Dr. Donald C. Graham, the editor
in question, will assume a great deal
of the load of administrative work for
the Faculty of Medicine, leaving Dean
John F. McCreary more time to devote
to inter-relationships of the faculties
and schools in the Health Sciences
Centre and to the development of the
teaching hospital.
Immediately prior to taking over the
editorship of the Canadian Medical
Journal Dr. Graham was a clinical
teacher and associate of the Department of Medicine at the University of
Toronto and a member of the staff of
the Department of Medicine at St.
Michael's Hospital, Toronto. Here at
UBC in addition to his duties as
associate dean he will be assistant

Great Trekkers enjoy Reunion tea
Great Trekkers have at least one
thing in common, a devotion to their
alma mater, and that is a fairly big
common interest. Believing this the
latest recipient of the award, Mrs.
Sherwood Lett, arranged for a reunion
of all Great Trekkers at her home one
Sunday afternoon in January.
It seemed to the Chronicle that this
was the time to review the history of
the award. Here is what the December
1950 Chronicle had to say:
"One of the finest features of the
1950 Homecoming . . . was the spotlight thrown on the Great Student
Trek of 1922. . . .It was gratifying . . .
to see a 'Mock Trek' at halftime of
the football game, and to witness the
first presentation of the Great Trekker
Award, an annual award presented by
the Alma Mater Society.
"This award is presented to an
alumna or alumnus of UBC who has:
(1) achieved eminence in his or her
chosen field of activity;
(2) made a worthy and special contribution to his community, and
(3) evidenced an especially keen and
continued interest in his Alma Mater
and rendered particular service to the
undergraduate students."
'Joe' Brown, BA '23, was the first
recipient of the award. He had been
chairman of the Development Fund's
Board of Directors since the inauguration of the annual giving program in
1948 and he was one of the eight
members of the campaign committee
to be decorated with a cairn pin when
the Trekkers celebrated in 1947 the
25th anniversary of their march to
West Point Grey.
Twice since then the students have
bent slightly the rules governing the
award and have given it to men who
were not alumni of UBC. No one can
quarrel with their selections, for the
first was Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie
(1962), and the second the late George
Front Row: John M. Buchanan, Mrs. Sherwood Lett, Miss Marjorie Agnew, Mr.
Justice A. E. Lord. Back Row: Dr. H. T. Logan, Jas. Sinclair, The Hon. J. V. Clyne,
Joe Brown, Dean Walter Gage.
Great Trekkers unable to be present: Aubrey Roberts, Dr. Phyllis Ross, E. W. H.
Brown, Senator N. A. M. MacKenzie, Dr. A. E. Richards. Deceased: Sherwood
Lett, Geo. T. Cunningham-
Cunningham (1964).
Latest but not last of the Great
Trekkers is Mrs. Evelyn Story Lett, BA
'17 and once more a student at the
University. She was a member of the
committee that drafted the Alma
Mater Society's constitution, served as
a vice-president of the Alumni Association, and headed an advisory committee on women's residences which
presented a brief to the provincial
government in 1948. Currently she is
a key member of the committee administering the Schwesinger bequest
to the Alumni Association.
AAG Chairman
Frank G. Fredrickson, BCom '53
New Alumni Annual Giving chairman is Frank G. Fredrickson, BCom
'53, succeeding Verne J. Housez.
Mr. Fredrickson is confident of another good year in Alumni Annual
Giving and he offers sound reasons for
his optimism.
"The record shows," he points out,
"that graduates are becoming more
and more aware of the tremendous
needs and importance of education in
to-day's world. Their support last year
of Alumni Annual Giving and the 3-
Universities Fund is a sure indication
that they accept a responsibility in
this field."
While the 1966 Alumni Annual
Giving program will continue to stress
support for the 3-Universities Capital
Fund—a most pressing need, as the
new chairman says—traditional Alumni Annual Giving projects will not be
Victoria-born Frank Fredrickson received his public school education in
Vancouver and Winnipeg. From 1943
to 1945 he served with the RCAF. He

29 Play festival
will mark
Something new in Alumni Association activities is the sponsoring of a
Festival of Original One-Act Plays,
all to be written and produced by UBC
students. This may well turn out to be
one of the most widely popular of all
the special alumni observances
marking 1966.
For this, in case the fact has
escaped any alumnus is the Golden
Jubilee of the Alumni Association of
Early in the year UBC students,
graduate and undergraduate, were invited to submit one-act plays to be
considered for presentation to the
public in the autumn. At time of
writing a team of judges is in process
of selecting not less than two, not more
than four, plays for presentation. Out
of the program one play will be chosen
to represent UBC at the Canadian
Universities Drama Festival which
will be held in February, 1967.
In sponsoring this festival the Asso
ciation considers it not only a worthwhile event to help mark an important
anniversary but also a means of
encouraging the fine arts at the
University. It's one of those good
causes that promises to be a lot of fun,
The golden year
has come!
It's time to ring that date on our
calendars once more! What date? Why,
This year, the Golden Year of the
Alumni Association, the big get-together will take place on Saturday,
October 22. The Homecoming Luncheon and all class reunions—classes of
'16 and '21 and all the subsequent
sixes and ones—will be held on
The usual wind-up event, the ball,
will be very special, for this year it
will be the Golden Ball! celebrating

More about
Alumni Candidates
The December issue of the Chronicle
ran a story on the UBC alumni who
had entered the November 8 federal
election race. However, we regret that
we failed to mention Tom Barnett,
BA'28, NDP candidate in Comox-
Alberni, who won out over the Liberal
candidate there. Also missed—our apologies to them—were candidates Arthur
McClellan, BCom '34, Raymond Parkinson, BA '50, MD '54, and Miss Mary

30 Scholarship Tea
held in
Faculty Club
On the afternoon of Friday, January
13, a representative group of alumni
had the happy experience of meeting
many of our Norman MacKenzie
Scholarship winners at tea in the
Faculty Club. The honoured guests
were all the past and present holders
of the scholarship now on campus,
and included young people from across
the border who had won American
scholarships in this category.
From the United States we have:
James Noel Crowley, Long Beach,
Wash.; Harvey John Field, Atlanta,
Georgia; Thomas E. Kiovsky and
Edward Francis Ryan, both now of
Vancouver, B.C.; and Ernestine A.

A well-mixed party of close to 150
people—scholarship winners, faculty,
alumni and student representatives
were present at the gathering, the
second annual event of its kind.
Lett Scholarship
terms decided
The first award of the Sherwood
Lett Memorial Scholarship will be
made, it is expected, this spring. The
young man or woman who is chosen
to receive the $1500 scholarship will
be of top calibre, for the Selection
Committee "in assessing the merits of
candidates who are nominated, is concerned with qualifications such as
those Sherwood Lett possessed—high
scholastic and literary attainments,
physical vigour, moral force of character and ability to serve, work with,
and lead others."
The rules have now been drawn up
for the composition of the Selection
Committee and the basis of nominations. To be eligible a candidate must
(a) have attended The University of
British Columbia (by the end of the
session in which the award is made)
for at least two full winter sessions;
(b) be qualified in the next winter
session to enter the third or higher
year of University studies; (c) rank
academically in the top quarter of
students in his year and faculty; and
(d) give assurance that, if selected, he
will continue in the next regular session in a full program of studies at

Calling Pack Rats!
In the last issue of the Chronicle we
asked you to search in your attics. We
sought "some rotten archive, rummaged out of some seldom-explored
press" (Charles Lamb) to help us put
together the history of the Alumni
Association. We thank those who
responded, including Connie High-
moor Adams who has sent Nos. 1 and
2 of Vol. 2 of the Alumni Bulletin,
published in 1925.
That was a find. Evelyn Story Lett
contributed a 1924 Bulletin Vol. 1,
No. 2 (three pages mimeo'd). How
many others were published? Has
anyone other copies?
We have the Alumni Directory for
the years 1922 to 1926. Were there
No minute books have been found
yet for the years before 1935. Those
years are like a jigsaw puzzle with too
many missing pieces. Help us.
We don't need Annuals or Chronicles for our immediate purposes; we
have complete sets.
We've been specific about some of
our needs for the pre-1935 period. But
remember, you may all have potential
archive material. Anything about
the Alumni Association will be of
value for the history. Anything else,
including mementoes from your undergraduate years, may give us clues
and would find a place in our
Alumni Archives. Write Frances
Tucker, care of the Alumni Office.
Pack rats! Give us your treasures.
Notice is hereby given that the Annual Meeting of the Alumni Association will be held at the hour of 6:00
p.m. on Wednesday, May 11, 1966, in
the Ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver,
Vancouver, B.C.
Two members of the Association
may nominate persons for the elective
positions on the Board of Management
pursuant to Section 8 of the By-Laws
of the Association. All nominations
must be accompanied by the written
consent of the nominee, and be in the
hands of the director of the Alumni
Association, 252 Brock Hall, at least
seven days before the date of the Annual Meeting.

31 Dear Editor
Loans vs Grants
I was interested in the article on fee
increases and student support which
appeared in the Autumn '65 Chronicle,
especially in the light of the recent
"threat" by the British Government to
make the British students' fee and
maintenance allowances repayable after graduation, that is, to make the
outright grants into loans, comparable
to the loans offered under the Canada
Student Loans Plan.
I enclose a student paper "Gongster,"
report and comment on this government suggestion. British students have
little to complain about if their financial circumstances are compared with
B.C. students. The indignation reported by "Gongster" might encourage
B.C. students to rebel against their
less favourable circumstances with
greater determination.
—Barbara Belyea, B.A.'65
Shopland Fund
still open
Last spring I happened to give a drive
to a woman student who was going my
way to town. We fell into conversation. It developed that she was a third-
year education student, mature and
She explained that she was on her
way to work to support herself at
university. The job took Saturday
afternoons and several evenings a week
and was cutting into her precious
study hours. But more, it was a
distasteful job—she'd leave it at once
if she didn't need the money.
She earned the large sum of $1.00
an hour, but compared to baby-sitting
this is good money. Can a cashier or
waitress earn more?
A woman student who must earn
her way seems to be financially at a
great disadvantage to the male student.
Compare her earning capacity with
that of the young man who works in
the forest, a mill, on the boats or as
maintenance crew with the City of
Last June the Stella Shopland Memorial Fund was set up to earn annual
income to aid university students. It
stands now at $679.01.
If further contributions could bring
this sum up to a minimum $1000 it
could earn at 5% interest a sum of
$50 annually for a bursary for just
such a woman student. A fund of
$2000 would yield twice that.
The $10, $25 or $50 you give now
means comparatively little to the established person, but can you
remember what a pot of gold it represents to a girl who has nothing but a
willingness to work and a determination to succeed?
You can still help by sending donations to: The Stella Shopland Memorial Fund, c/o Dean W. H. Gage,

income tax purposes.

male viewpoint
I read with interest the article in the
last Chronicle on the pros and cons of
working one's way through college.
Some of the views expressed were
pertinent but, being women, I feel the
authors failed to treat the issue from
the point of view of a majority of
students, that is, males. After all,
ability is not an end unto itself. If a
gifted student has not the ambition,
the character and the guts to put a
university education within his grasp
without handouts, is the education
going to benefit him at all?
It would be interesting to see some
male opinion on this question in the

Laurier LaPierre is not making a
secret of what lies behind that mysterious sounding title to his address.
It's a three-part question, really, that
he hopes to answer. Is it Canada's destiny to be one melting pot, or two melting pots, or does it lie in cultural diversity?
Mr. LaPierre, perhaps best known to
British Columbians as co-host on "This
Hour has Seven Days," is associate professor of history and director of the
French Canada Studies program at McGill. He taught at the University of
Western Ontario and at Loyola College
before going to McGill in the autumn
of 1963.
As an historian Laurier LaPierre has
a long series of published articles on
French Canada to his credit. He also
wrote the story line for the Canadian
pavilion at Expo '67.
As an academic, he is currently
serving on committees of the Canadian
Association of University Teachers and
of the Association of Universities and
Colleges of Canada.
