The way Canadians live is the envy of nearly every country
in the world. Much of what we enjoy comes through modern
financing - or the "renting" of money to companies to help
them operate and grow. This means new products, new stores
and services, new places to go - and new jobs. Industry and
our whole economy expand and prosper as fresh, hard
working capital funds are made available. In another way,
modern financing techniques enable people to have the things
that make life better, and pay for them while they earn.
There are many firms who offer modern credit facilities, but
we think Laurentide is the one with whom you would be
most happy to do business.

Our cover picture was chosen to lead the reader into the
story of the just-opened British Columbia Institute of Technology on page 7. It is indicative of the type of structure
in which the building technology at the Institute will be
involved. Perhaps it could also be taken as symbolic of
what is happening everywhere in education to-day.
Something new this issue are the line drawings which
enliven the Homecoming pages in the middle of the book.

Divided Loyalties
A new doctrine
David M. Brousson,
President, Alumni Association
Alumni associations and their parent universities have
always preached loyalty to Alma Mater, and every
means of persuasion, from emotional sentiment to practical
common-sense, has been used to develop and maintain
devotion to "dear old U."
To-day, in British Columbia, we believe a new doctrine
is necessary—a doctrine of divided loyalties.
There are those who would set UBC against Simon
Fraser, and both of these against Victoria University, in
every sort of competitive situation, and there are many who
may feel a special interest in one or the other because of
geographical or other reasons. Should this be so? Let us
examine the background.
In 1962, when we had only vague misgivings about our
failure to provide for the requirements of higher education
in B.C., many people advocated that future organization
should be enlargement and extension of UBC—the so-called
federated system. Then, in 1963, Dr. Macdonald in his
report recommended a variety of independent institutions,
each one faced with the challenge of its own philosophy,
its own destiny, and now the government has implemented
the report by provision of such multiple facilities.
But the important point to note is that these institutions are not competitive, in any but the finest sense,
but rather complementary to each other. It is absolutely vital
to UBC, for example, that Simon Fraser open successfully
on time, or else UBC will be swamped with students in
1965, and many UBC staff members are doing everything
they can to help SFU, from President Macdonald down—
in fact, Dr. Macdonald has been called the father of SFU.
It is essential today for a great university to have around
it an interested, informed body of alumni, to provide the
community climate in which the institution can thrive. We
therefore commend to your support institutions of higher
learning in your own sphere of interest, and point out that
the newer institutions need support and interest as well as
the older.
A t the same time, while you may plan to send your son
-^- or daughter to one of the newer institutions, if he or she
plans special professional training, or advanced graduate
work, it is more than likely that he will end up at UBC
anyway. Thus, what we are really talking about is support
for the total body of higher educational institutions.
Do you live in Victoria, or Burnaby, or Peterborough?
Then by all means support UVic, or SFU, or Trent, in
every way you can, socially, intellectually, financially. But
remember that as a graduate of UBC, you have a continuing
responsibility (some will say, a lifelong debt to repay) to
insure its well-being as the senior institution of higher
learning in British Columbia.
We believe that the division of our loyalties between
two or three or more great institutions of higher education
will in no way diminish our loyalty to any one, and
especially not to our own Alma Mater, the University of
British Columbia. Elizabeth Blanche Norcross
Higher Education's
Latest Tool
In burnaby municipality, situated next door to the
vocational school, near neighbour to Simon Fraser University, stands the physical plant of the latest addition to
British Columbia's post-secondary educational system—the
Technological Institute. With its opening in September the
middleman came into his own. The middleman is the
technician, that essential bridge in to-day's world between
professional man and tradesman.
The Institute's first calendar sets out what it hopes to do
for its students: "It is the aim of the Institute to produce
technicians who, with additional experience, rapidly will
assume responsible, supervisory, or managerial positions in
business or industry, as graduate technologists. Their particular interests and abilities should be in the applied aspects of engineering or business rather than in the development of new basic principles. In this respect, it is expected
that they will provide liaison between the professional and
the craftsman."
Planning for the Institute started in 1961, following a
Royal Commission Report recommending the establishment
of a technological institute in British Columbia.
Western Canada, indeed Canada as a whole, has been
poor in educational institutions which would provide
technical as distinct from vocational training. In the engineering fields, for instance, the British Isles and U.S.A.
have found that from three to five technicians are employed
to every professional engineer. This is the figure at which
Canada should aim, correcting a situation in which professionally trained engineers are being used as technicians
(for which they are not trained) for lack of qualified
"middlemen."
The Technological Institute's Advisory Council is headed
by Dr. J. F. K. English, Deputy Minister and Superintendent of Education, as chairman; J. S. White, Director of
Technical and Vocational Education and Regional Director
of Canadian Vocational Training, Department of Education, vice-chairman; and the principal, E. C. Roper. They
are supported by a dozen council members who include
senior members of UBC's faculty and top executives from
industry. Advising in seventeen specialized fields as diverse
as Broadcasting Communications and Mining Technology
are committees made up of experts from all those fields.
These advisory committee members are men with a
personal stake in the Institute. They represent businesses
and industries which need technicians and they know just
what sort of training they wish those technicians to have.
Technological training is expensive training and the
advisory council and committees had the taxpayers' as well
as the students' interests at heart when they estimated the
number of technicians that could be absorbed in each field
under study. With the Institute's opening date set for
September, 1964, the first graduates of the two-year courses
—they are almost entirely two-year—would be seeking
jobs in 1966. The hope was to give industry all the technicians it needed and jobs to all the newly-qualified
technicians.
The Institute was built, equipped and staffed on the
basis of those estimates but British Columbia's expanding
economy got ahead of the estimates. Months before opening
date it began to appear that estimates in many fields had
been too low.
As it stands this September, the Technological Institute
will enroll 750 students, and in 1965, 1500. All indications
are that it will, within a very few years, have to be enlarged
to take in many times that number. Another development
that is likely and desirable is the establishment of branches
of the school in towns with heavy industry, branches which
will specialize in a department particularly applicable to
that region.
(Continued page 8) (From page 7)
Edward Cecil Roper, BSc, (Alta. '36), MBA (UBC '60,
principal of the British Columbia Institute of
Technology, spent the years between degrees in
private industry. He was first with Britannia Mining
and Smelting, rising in the organization from miner
tu manager, which latter post he held from 1947
to 1955. In 1955 he became executive vice-president
and director of Howe Sound Company, New York,
as well as holding directorships in several other
companies, until 1957 when he was appointed
president of the Howe Sound Company. He left them
to take his Master of Business Administration degree
at UBC and then to join the staff.
What has happened to make technological training a
necessary feature of our system of higher education? Essentially two factors are involved: the advancement and increasing complexity of science, and the need to continue to
be competitive in a technological world if, as individuals,
Student in Gas and Oil technology
we wish to maintain our standard of living. In the field of
engineering, for example, thirty years ago our University
Faculty of Engineering was giving much the same training
that the Institute now proposes giving to its student
technicians. To-day the Engineering Faculty, as Dean
Myers, its head, expresses it, supplies the student with the
ammunition; it is up to him to take it from there. In other
words, his studies are more theoretical, less practical, than
they were.
Not all the departments at the Technological Institute
have anything like engineering's long history. As examples,
there are Food Processing and Restaurant, Motel and Hotel
Management (the latter under the direction of M. M.
Coltman with John Lindenlaub, until recently manager of
the food services at UBC's Faculty Club, in charge of the
restaurant end.) The British Columbia Institute of Technology is the only school in Canada training technicians
in these fields.
Another course which belongs very much to this half of
the twentieth century is in radio and TV communications.
There are two distinct branches here, production and
technical. Students in production study contemporary history and current events among other things, and produce,
also among other things, news broadcasts with commentary based on the latest wire releases, in the school's
fully-equipped broadcast studio.
Forest Technology has a lab. furnished with miniature
equipment to illustrate all the processes of pulp and paper
manufacture.
Applicants for admission to the Technological Institute
must show academic standing comparable to that required
by any of our universities. As with the universities, special
consideration may be given to the mature student who can
show evidence that he is likely to succeed in the course he
has chosen even though he may lack certain formal
prerequisites.
It seems probable that the Institute will have a fairly
high proportion of mature students. Although closing date
8 for admission applications was August 15, before June was
out and before the high school applications had begun to
come in, there were more applications for all departments
than could be accepted. A particularly interesting point
about these early applications is that about 25% of them
came from people who had attended university for one or
more years, had not found there what they hoped, and had
dropped out without graduating. Most of these early applicants had had some years of experience in business or
industry and many of them said that the Institute was
offering what they would like to have taken when they left
high school and had, many of them, enrolled at the
university as the only institution of higher learning open to
them.
In spite of the fact that so many more qualified people
applied than could be accomodated, admissions were not
made on a first-come-first served basis; high school graduates received due consideration. When classes started on
September 10 students ranged from sixteen years to middle
age.
Perhaps some disappointed applicants were shocked to
find that the Institute of Technology is not a haven for
poor students, and yet others may have been surprised to
learn that it is not another form of university. It is its own
kind of school. If a student should wish to transfer to UBC,
for instance, the principle laid down in the Macdonald
Report would apply:
"Transfer should be possible between institutions but it
should be based not on identity of courses but on performance of students. Admission policies should be concerned
less with prerequisites and more with evidence of ability
when students seek transfer from one institution to
another."
Translated into terms of Faculty of Engineering vis a vis
the Institute, the Institute would not be interested in a
student who sought admission because he had failed at
UBC. Conversely, UBC might be ready to give credit to an
Medical lab students receive tips from Mrs. Joan Blair
Mr. L. Irvine, head of Broadcasting technology, pictured in the Institute's completely equipped studio
Institute student for certain of his courses, although transfer
would not be automatic, and ordinarily such a student
would come in as a freshman.
It is unlikely that many of the students who choose the
Technological Institute because of their interest in the
practical application of knowledge will later wish to transfer to some other institution. The Institute's shops and
laboratories have the latest of modern equipment, from
x-ray machines to computers, the sort of thing that doesn't
come at bargain prices, The metallurgical technology has a
stigmatic spectograph with a price tag of $26,000. Gas and
oil uses Martin's distillation unit at $12,500. The materials
testing laboratory is furnished with a 200,000-pound tensile
testing machine which cost $26,000. Chemical technology
makes use of a $24,000 x-ray fluorescence and defraction
machine. That sort of thing is necessarily repeated throughout the Institute.
Here and there some older machine stands out among
the shiny nineteen sixties models, such as an x-ray unit of
the sort that technicians might encounter in some of the
province's smaller hospitals.
Costly as technological training is, it is essential if
British Columbia industry is to continue to grow and provide jobs for a growing population. It may (or may not) be
some comfort to the provincial taxpayer to know that 75%
of the cost of this equipment comes out of his federal
pocket, together with 50% of the operating cost.
If the Technological Institute is to give full value for the
investment it represents in human as well as economic
terms, then parents must be persuaded that there is nothing
prestigious about having a son at university if his field of
interest is to be found at the Institute. Not only will he
have a more personally rewarding life in doing the work
he was meant for, but he may very well find it more
financially rewarding. The late Honourable Chief Justice Sherwood Lett
lO The Hon. Mr. Justice Arthur E. Lord
In War and Peace
A Servant of his Country
Many words of eulogy have been
spoken and written about Sherwood
Lett since his untimely death on July
24th, 1964. As few Canadians have
ever done before, he leaves the imprint
of services rendered to his country,
province and city. When one reads
the record of his accomplishments in
both World Wars, his tour of duty as
Canadian Commissioner of the Indo
China Truce Supervisory Commission,
Viet Nam, his participation in community affairs, his tremendous contribution to the building of the University of British Columbia to its present
highly respected position amongst
educational institutions, his activities
as a Bencher of the Law Society and
President of the Vancouver Bar Association, and finally his judicial duties,
first as Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court and latterly as Chief Justice of
British Columbia, one is amazed that
one man could accomplish so much
and with such distinction. Everything
he undertook received his utmost care
and attention.
His name will always be remembered
for his influence upon the life and
growth of his beloved University. He
was a student at McGill University
College, Vancouver, when that institution lost its identity in this province
and UBC opened its doors in 1915.
Sherwood Lett became the first
president of the UBC Alma Mater
Society and graduated in absentia in
1916 when he was in the army. In 1919
he went to Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar,
returned to Vancouver in 1922, and
took up the practice of law. He soon
became identified once again with
the University of British Columbia
when he was elected to the Senate in
1924 and was a member of that body
untikJ955,' and also did double duty
as a member of the Board of Governors for several years. During this
peiiod he was elected president of the
Alumni Association on three separate
occasions. In 1951 he was elected
chancellor, the highest office in the
University, which position he held
until 1957.
Sherwood Lett's military career commenced with his enlistment in 1915.
He served until the end of the war
during which he won the Military
Cross. He did not lose interest in the
army after the war was over but
maintained an active interest with his
old unit, the Irish Fusiliers of Canada,
later becoming its commanding officer.
In 1940 he again heeded the call of
his country and was soon appointed to
command the 4th Canadian Infantry
Brigade which took part in the Dieppe
raid in 1942 in which he was seriously
wounded and was awarded the D.S.O.
for conspicuous bravery. He returned
to Canada where, after a long course
of treatments for a badly shattered
shoulder, he was appointed Deputy
Chief of the General Staff at National
Defence H.Q. But before D Day he
was back in England in charge of his
old brigade. Shortly after landing on
D Day he was again wounded and his
career as an active fighting soldier
finally came to an end. He continued
with other duties including an expedition to the Aleutian Islands, until
the end of the war. In 1949 Sherwood
Lett received an appointment which
he prized very highly, that of Honorary
Colonel Commandant of the Royal
Canadian Infantry Corps.
In all the positions of authority held
by Sherwood Lett, no matter in what
area of activity, he filled them in such
a manner as to command the respect
and admiration of all those with whom
he came in contact. They respected his
ability, intelligence, courage, integrity,
modesty, and thoughtfulness for others.
The words of Prime Minister Lester
Pearson when he heard of Sherwood's
death, and whom he described as "one
of my oldest and closest friends," will
be endorsed by all who knew him
when he said, "I know of no Canadian
who has served his country in war and
peace with greater distinction and
more unselfishly."
The Sherwood Lett Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established by the
Alumni Association as a memorial to the late Chief Justice. It is a recognition
of his many and great contributions to the life of this University, of British
Columbia, and of all Canada, and it is hoped that this Fund will serve as the
vehicle for the tributes of all segments of the University community as well as
of the many other areas touched by Mr. Lett during his lifetime of service.
Trustees of the Fund are Mr. Justice Arthur E. Lord (chairman), President
Macdonald, Mr. Justice Nathan T. Nemetz, J. Stuart Keate, and David M.
Brousson.
University of British Columbia students will be the beneficiaries of the
Sherwood Lett Memorial Scholarship Fund, but more detailed terms of reference
will be established later.
In announcing the Fund, Mr. Brousson stated, "Mr. Lett's years of service to
UBC touched the lives of thousands of students, and we hope that alumni will
lead the way with many contributions, regardless of size."
Donations should be sent to the Alumni Association, 252 Brock Hall, University of B.C., Vancouver 8, B.C., and designated for the Sherwood Lett Memorial
Scholarship Fund. Receipts for tax purposes will be issued.
1 1 PROGRAMMED LEARNING
Adrian Marriage, Assistant
Professor, Social Work
For at least the past ten years we have been hearing
about a new educational development called teaching
machines. Everyone has agreed that the machines
are not so important as are their contents, called
programs. It has been claimed that programs are
built according to psychological principles of learning
which make teaching machines far more efficient
teachers than any we have traditionally had. At the
other extreme, it has been noted that much of the
learning theory upon which programs may be based
PRO
I wanted to begin by saying that I took a far less extreme
view of this question than the terms of the motion before
the house allow me to admit. Of course programmed instruction is for people. It lends itself to certain subjects
very well, and when it does it improves efficiency, increases
flexibility, frees the teacher from routine duties, encourages
independence in the student, brings out the more obvious
aspects of the formal structure of the subject, raises the
average minimum levels of instruction in the field, promotes
the search for rational learning sequences, and no doubt
has all sorts of other advantages I can't now think of. As
a matter of fact, it always has had such advantages—as
generations of schoolboys working their way through Latin
primers could testify, if they could be acquainted with the
terms  of  the  argument.
I say "I wanted to begin. . . ," and so I have. And you
may wonder why I introduce a note of equivocation by
putting these concessions to my opponent into indirect
speech. The reason is quaint. It is that I could not indicate
the reluctance of the issues to conform to the unyielding
patterns of "either—or" so long as I stuck to the rules of
this kind of dialogue. The central convention of formal
debate is that the motion is either true or false, and the
dialectical possibilities of the convention are limited to
assertion and counter-assertion. These possibilities can be
enriched only at the cost of corruption of the convention
and this is what in some part accounts for the special pleading characteristic of debate—including parliamentary debate. The factitiousness and the commitment to dichotomy
of this method of reasoning give it the dramatic excitement
of a contest in which we know that one of the gladiators
has to die, as they also give it the comedy of absurdity.
But we know perfectly well that it is a preposterously
inefficient method of reasoning, and we know that its
relationship to the plastic qualities of truth is infallibly
Procrustean.
What I want to suggest is that the implicit model of
argument in programmed instruction is that of formal
debate. It seeks to convert human knowledge into sets of
"true" propositions about discrete matters, where the truth
of these propositions is guaranteed by, and at the same
time guarantees, the falsity of all alternative propositions.
What is worse, it seeks to convert—I should not hesitate to
say "reduce"—human learning to a repertory of acts of
recognition of true propositions. If the Objective Test is a
parody of judgment upon achieved intellectual competence,
Programmed Instruction is the correlative parody of the
process of achieving it. Its representations of reality acquire
form by brutally restricting the options of discourse. The
Roads to Parnassus all lie along the edges of razors.
Now some truths are uncompromising. Coins do come
down either heads or tails. And to the extent that this is so,
there is a place—as the limp phrase goes—for programmed
instruction. But it is a very peculiar place, and it occupies
a very modest territory. Its place is at the threshold of
genuine thinking, and its territory is that of the platitude.
We need to acquaint ourselves with truisms so that we can
(Continued   page   14)
T2 IS NOT FOR PEOPLE
was developed using rats and pigeons, and that
programs are therefore for 'people who learn like
pigeons.'
In any case, programs have been tried in B.C.
schools. Classes have studied a whole ninth grade
algebra course by program and many other shorter
programs have been used. Because of the wide
disagreement over the value of programs we have
invited two educators from our faculty to debate
the question, 'Programs are not for people.'
Eric McPherson, Assistant Professor,
Education & Mathematics
CON
Since our race began, we have made tools. And as long
as we have made them, we have had to contend with
two perverse human reactions to them.
Since the days of King Alfred's sword, through the cargo
cults of Polynesia to a recent CBC spectacular on computers, some of us have chosen to attribute spirits and wills
of their own to our tools.
Probably in reaction to the sight of people worshipping
the gods in the machines, another group of people like
Rousseau, Thoreau and Huxley have lamented the latest
tools and have yearned for an earlier, simpler age.
The first reaction is usually the result of ignorance and
the second of nostalgia. Neither does much harm provided
we do not take them too seriously. The first helps to
romanticize science and attracts adolescents to worthwhile
professions. The second sells summer camps, barbecue pits
and feature wall  fireplaces.
The program is a recent tool of education. We record a
conversation between a teacher and a student, and then
erase the student's responses. We then ask a new student to
run through the conversation on his own, providing his
own responses. Anyone who has conversed with children
recognizes the limitations of this procedure. Children quite
often give unconventional responses. To be effective, a
canned conversation must be so obvious, brief and directed
in the teacher's part that there is little chance for digression
in the conversation. Such a conversation is generally long,
narrow and dull. On the other hand, such a teacher is
patient, thorough and exceedingly tolerant of daydreaming.
Whether or not one wishes to indulge in long, narrow
and dull conversations depends upon one's objectives and
upon the alternatives. When there is some simple routine
material to be mastered, many students prefer a patient,
thorough and tolerant program to an impatient, brilliant,
intolerant human being. Whether we like it or not, most
human teachers are impatient with dull, routine but
necessary material.
Most commercial programs published to date have been
too long, too dull, and incredibly naive pedagogically.
Even so, the short ones have worked very well. As might be
expected, the long ones have not worked so well.
When any new tool is suggested, there is no point asking
how good a tool it is. The important question is whether
or not we can use it to do better something we want to do.
For the program, the answer to this question is yes.
For fear of being misunderstood, most teachers do not
mention in public the fact that every day every teacher
ignores the difficulties that many students in his class are
having. There are only so many minutes in a day, and
the teacher must distribute the time he has as equitably as
possible. The program has great possibilities for remedial
purposes. When a pupil cannot have a personal teacher,
the program may be the next best thing.
Further, it is generally recognized that homework is an
overrated pastime. While some students can learn effectively at home, the majority waste a great deal of time.
Again, the program can direct the student's home study.

know them for what they are. There is a sense, therefore,
in which the ideal end of programmed instruction is self-
destructive: it is useful in the degree that it can assist us to
the point where we can dispense with it.
The point at which we can dispense with instruction is
the point at which education begins, for instruction is not
so much a part of education as it is a prelude to it. Education is a sustained and purposeful conversation between an
intelligent and intellectually mature person and an intelligent and intellectually immature person. We call the first
a teacher and the second a student. This conversation must
be playful and wayward if it is to do justice to the caprice
and disorder of the world; it must also be serious and
consecutive if it is to show respect for the orderliness of the
world—what Einstein might have called its "honesty."
Reality (as it has become necessary to remind the present
generation) is complex, elusive, subtle, contradictory, fleeting, and incorrigibly odd. Conversations about reality
which celebrate the virtues of neatness, simplicity, linearity
and compactness have both their merits and their charms;
but they are the merits and charms that Hamlet did not
fail to recognize in Fortinbras.
I will be cryptic about the educational fruit of the ideal
dialogue between teacher and student: it appears when the
student catches the teacher's tone of voice.
There would have been a dozen other passable routes to
an encounter with this very difficult and very important
problem. Limitations of space and temperament alike have
obliged me to choose one that I believe to be direct but, at
the same time, admit to being dark. So let me break the law
I have just enacted and simply summarize. The strength of
programmed instruction is that it organizes, abbreviates and
simplifies. This undoubtedly saves effort. But the most
compelling enterprises of intelligence are precisely those
regarding which no effort can be spared. To attempt them
is the central task of any education worth having. The
aim of that education is to install an adequate tolerance for
complexity without creating a disposition to surrender to
it. And this is something that programmed instruction
simply cannot do.
True or False? True. Proceed directly to the Second
Lesson.
Finally, those students who for physical or mental reasons
cannot participate in ordinary classroom instruction can do
better with programs than they can on their own.
In each of the above cases, the program is a substitute for
something better, a human teacher. As long as we cannot
provide a tutor for each student, programs will be of some
value.
But this is only one side of programs. Besides doing
some things for us that we presently cannot do because of
human physical limitations, they can take over a few tasks
that we undertake out of necessity but will be glad to be
rid of.
It is only a matter of time until those teaching tasks
which are beneath human dignity will be handled by program. And it is beneath human dignity to teach fifty
French verbs, twenty fourth-grade spelling words, the
atomic weights of fifteen elements, or twenty-five instrument symbols in chemical engineering. Yet on such stuff
we build important generalizations. We have found that
programs will help us teach these things better than we
have taught them before. They are a new educational
tool. Nothing more. Nothing less.
A few educators have bent to worship the god in the
teaching machine, but far fewer than the Sunday supplements would have you believe. Larger numbers, abetted
by B. F. Skinner, have joined the debunkers. This learning
theorist and his students have done a large amount of
important but financially unrewarding work in free operant conditioning with rats, pigeons and children. He also
wrote a long program in psychology. Whether or not
Skinner believed that the two were related, he created the
impression that they were.
Educators, who are less naive now about cognitive
learning than they were in the days of E. L. Thorndike,
were quick to point out the difference and observe that
Skinner's own programs have little to do with free operant
conditioning.
It is easy to see how those who yearn for the Mark
Hopkins variety of education anyway have seized on this
misunderstanding of programming as an excuse for rejecting this new educational tool.
In fact, programs are as old as the Studebaker arithmetics, not very exciting, but quite useful for some purposes.
They will continue to be adjuncts to textbooks, workbooks, chalkboards, photographs, filmstrips, films, opaque
projectors, I.T.V. and a host of other educational tools
until something better comes along. The fact that each
of these tools, beginning with the textbook, has been
deified by a few and lamented by a few is beside the point.
Fire is for people.
Airplanes are for people.
Zippers are for people.
Enovid is for people.
And programs are for people.
14 Shopping Centre Campus for UBC?
Editor, Chronicle.
All UBC alumni who have benefited from participation in campus
athletics at inter-varsity, intramural
or casual levels will be concerned
about the most recent development
pertaining to green playing fields on
the campus.
Perhaps they have noticed that the
engineers, architects and medical students can no longer throw a ball on
the chemistry lawn or botanical gardens field; that the sounds of team
combat on the Aggie field have ceased;
and that green open space is generally
disappearing from the campus academic core.
They may not be aware that the
students have staged an architectural
competition to erect their new student
union building on the very stadium
field their predecessors built; or that
there is a strong possibility that the
women's grass hockey field behind
Brock will be paved for a parking lot.
They might well wonder why these
facilities with their scenic and recreation value are vanishing from the
easily-accessible mid-campus. While
many cities are spending fortunes to
recover downtown park space of premium land value, UBC, with no land
acquisition problem, seems bent on the
opposite course. At the speed at which
fields are disappearing, they must be
excused for presuming that sports have
gone out of style at UBC.
What of the new Wolfson fields
complex under development south of
Agronomy Road? This generous British bequest is a valuable addition but
it is not within noon-hour pedestrian
scope.
More positively, we should consider
the effect on future donors of the fate
of the 'permanent' bequests of Mclnnes
and Chris Spencer in the gymnasium
area. On a basis of acre for acre
utilization, the gymnasium fields complex cannot be duplicated elsewhere
at this time.
Of primary and long-term significance, how do our field facilities
stack up in comparison with those of
other campuses? If you like the
shopping centre atmosphere of Berkeley, we're admittedly well endowed.
There is, however, a nationally accepted standard   figure  for  playing  field
requirements based on research and
tested by experience. This standard
figure approximates ten acres of playing fields per thousand students in
Britain, the U.S.A. and Canada.
The minimum objective of the
Alumni Association Green Playing
Fields Committee is 120 acres by 1975
for UBC, when an enrolment of
24,000 students is envisaged. This
would give us half the accepted standard. We presently have one-fifth the
accepted standard with approximately
30 acres in use this fall. Is it valid to
chisel this standard down for our
special situation by arguing that Vancouver provides sailing, skiing, swimming and other outdoor pursuits to
compensate for team field sports? In
fact the standard is probably low when
you remember that: (1) we host as
great a variety of field games ar any
campus because of combined British
and American influences; (2) the
clemency of our climate allows these
games to be played throughout the
university  year;   (3)   because  of  our
peninsular position, campus residence
accommodation will have to increase
and so we must provide complementary facilities.
The key to a planned development
incorporating our minimum objective
is the UBC campus master plan presently in preparation. We hope that
this plan will demarcate sufficient and
permanent  field  areas.
In the last issue of the Chronicle
appeared an interesting article, 'At
Loggerheads on Athletic Scholarships.'
That discussion could terminate decisively with either of two developments. Simon Fraser University has
the double features of a planned campus and a program including athletic
scholarships. Should they provide a
tangible lead in this field, it would be
difficult not to follow suit. The
ironical antithesis making scholarship
athletes academic would quickly result if we had no field to put them on.
Tuum est!

The role of the public
in university affairs
A university differs from other institutions of higher
learning in that it focuses upon two major functions. One
is the endeavour to instil in its students a permanent
interest in enquiry and creativity. This is done through the
exercise of judgment expressed in philosophical, scientific,
and humanistic modes of thought. If an institution graduates professionals, however complex and reputable their
discipline, who merely repeat or apply techniques and
facts already learnt, to that extent it is not a university but
a technical institute. The second function is to expand
man's cultural and intellectual resources by adding to the
stock of ideas and knowledge available to society.
In both functions there is a qualitative criterion for
appropriate university concerns. Enquiry is creative when
it influences or bears upon general propositions (science)
or when it explores or captures the wider significance of
unique experience (art). To perform the functions adequately, a university must build upon manipulative technology and it must convey the traditional and current
state of knowledge. But this is a means to the creative end,
not the end itself. To make the university the guardian of
the cultural tradition is to turn it into a conservative club,
over-protective of national and cultural mythology.
Universities through the ages have served society. Its
graduates have embarked on professional careers, using the
knowledge, theories, technology, and methods of thought
which universities have made available to them. Where
men and women have had creative aptitudes and where
universities have provided an environment which has
allowed them to bring their talents to maturity, it can be
said that universities have provided creative leaders in
society.
But this is a very different matter from saying that
universities exist to provide a given number of professionals
for society, or that university personnel have a duty to
solve social problems. If such criteria are elevated into the
primary functions of universities, the universities are distorted. They turn out technical professionals to meet the
16
needs of numbers, the faculty are diverted from major
research, and courses of instruction are added which do not
meet the criteria I have set out in the opening paragraphs.
Today, many members of the public sincerely believe
that lay trustees should control university funds and therefore university policy. This is based partly on the false
notion that the university exists to provide a direct service
to society, and partly on the premise that he who pays the
piper calls the tune.
Properly speaking, these assumptions of public control
should apply to the system of higher education as a
totality. The public, through its legislature, has the right
and duty to establish a system of higher education which
will produce the number of professionals and technicians
that society needs. It has the right and duty to determine,
within that system of higher education, the degree to which
it wants its young people to be exposed to university values.
This in turn relates to such matters as the relative merits
of technically limited as against open-minded professionals,
the value of rational and informed thinking in society, and
the desirability of giving each individual an opportunity of
developing his or her creative talents to the full. Ultimately,
the decision to provide public finances to support universities is a political decision which must be made in the
legislature. It should be made on the basis of informed
discussion in which all sections of the university community should take part, but no section of that community
should have the authority or the right to represent the
public viewpoint as a whole. In particular, the Alumni
Association does not represent the public, and its representation on such bodies as Senate is not public representation; it is representation of graduates only. It is
only through the legitimate political process that all aspects
of  public interest are expressed.
Fiscal and Academic Control
It is one thing to say that the public should determine
how much tax money should support universities, and quite Dr. Cyril S. Belshaw, Professor of
Anthropology and Sociology, UBC
another to say that the public should control university
operations. The legislature has the obligation to ensure that
public funds are not being misused. This it can do through
the open accounting of university funds, through its ultimate fiscal control, and through wide public discussion of
university affairs. But this does not imply representation on
the university's governing body.
Indeed, independence from the government and the
legislature, that is from direct political control, has been a
fundamental part of the tenet of academic freedom. It has
been based partly on a fear of the possibility of extreme
government interference, but it goes much deeper. Well
meaning interference by public representatives and pressure
groups, making judgments on ephemeral criteria, or without understanding the values I outlined earlier, can and do
distort the pattern of academic studies. This is the fundamental reason for the existence of so many technical and
anti-intellectual courses in so many North American
universities today.
The distinction that is sometimes made between the
academic and the business affairs of a university is not
valid. Almost every business decision has academic implications. The most glaring example at LT.B.C. is in the
appointment of faculty. Obviously, this is the basic means
for maintaining or altering academic standards. Yet at
U.B.C. this is regarded as a fiscal matter under the control
of the Board, the Senate having no voice.
Who Shall Govern?
Who, then, should govern a university? In my opinion,
only those who, by reason of their education and role in
society, can be expected to understand the kinds of values
I have attempted to list at the beginning of this essay are in
a position to exercise this function properly. This will be
primarily the faculty, but it could also include graduates
who have been exposed to the research process as well as
to   undergraduate   education.   To   increase   objectivity,   it
could also include a number of outstanding faculty and
graduates of the foremost universities of the world. It
should be noted that almost all these categories are
specifically excluded from membership on the Board of
Governors under the present University Act, either by
reason of the fact that they are salaried members of the
university, or that they are not resident in the Province,
both irrelevant issues in a responsible international institution. This to me is the clearest evidence that university
values are not understood in this Province, and that
U.B.C. has failed to educate its students, now alumni, in
these values.
Community Liaison
Does exclusion of the lay public from the organs of
university government imply isolation? By no means. Here
again the university has failed to create the appropriate
institutions. There is a strong case for considering the
establishment of a widely representative Associated Council,
to include many persons who are not graduates (the
majority of our population, after all), who could meet to
discuss university affairs from time to time with faculty
and alumni. There is a similar case for permanent liaison
committees of professionals (for example, teachers, doctors,
lawyers) who would meet to discuss not only the affairs of
particular faculties as they relate to the profession but also
the broad educational objectives and policies of the institution. (But such bodies should not govern or control.)
Faculty members, in the course of their normal task of
enquiry, examine issues which arise in society, and their
knowledge is fed back into society, an interplay as fundamental to the health of the university as it is to the
world in which we live. And finally, I do not believe
that we have yet begun to tackle the basic and the most
important intellectual aspects of continuing education—
but this is too broad a topic for elaboration here.
Let us not confuse community liaison with community
control of university government.
17 Student volunteers
seen in action
Sally Creighton
UNTIL I WAS ASKED TO LOOK UP
some CUSO volunteers in Jamaica
last winter, I did not know that there
is a Canadian organization—Canadian
University Service Overseas — which
places volunteer workers in underdeveloped countries. Nor did I know
that this Canadian version of the
Peace Corps is not a copy of the
American idea but a simultaneous
development which had one of its
beginnings on the campus of the
University of British Columbia.
In 1960 a Canadian committee
working with Operation Crossroads
Africa (with headquarters in New
York) sent eleven college students to
various African countries as teachers.
These young people, in many cases,
also helped to build schools, hospitals
and libraries. In 1961, the year in
which the Peace Corps was established
by the late President Kennedy, a
President's Committee on Student
Service Overseas was set up at UBC.
As its pilot project, which was financed
by an appeal sponsored by the
Vancouver Sun, this university sent
two home economists, a scientist and
an engineer to Ghana. During the
same period, Canadian Voluntary
Commonwealth Service was being organized by Guy Arnold on the campus
of the University of Toronto, and
Laval University and the University
of Montreal were sending French-
Canadian volunteers to French-speaking African countries.
Obviously it was inefficient to have
18
several organizations approaching foreign governments and attempting to
work independently in the same underdeveloped areas. In June 1961 Canadian University Service Overseas was
set up as a national organization
to co-ordinate and administer the
English and French university efforts.
Secretarial help was provided by the
Canadian National Commission for
UNESCO until, in 1962, the Canadian
Mrs. John H. Creighton, BA'23, MA(Tor)
Mrs. Creighton, well-known radio personality and TV panelist, last year received a
Canada Council Award to spend some four
months in the West Indies, as noted in the
Chronicle. While there she had the opportunity to see something of CUSO in action
and she has given us the accompanying report on the contribution to world understanding that our students are making through
that organization.
Mrs. Creighton made the trip with her
husband who retired from the English department of UBC in 1963. She, herself,
among her other careers, or perhaps before
embarking on them, was once an instructor
in  the English  department.
Universities Foundation under the
directorship of Dr. Geoffrey Andrew,
formerly of UBC, assumed administrative responsibility for CUSO, and
William McWhinney became its executive secretary.
Cuso's activities, with one exception,
continue to be financed entirely by
contributions from business, industry,
interested groups and private individuals. The exception is the volunteers'
transportation overseas for which the
Canadian government made itself
responsible this spring.
Thanks to Bill McWhinney who
was in Jamaica on a field trip while
my husband and I were staying there,
I learned most of these facts about
CUSO at the same time that I was
seeing volunteers in action. There
were twelve CUSO workers in Jamaica
at the time, for that island presents
more parallels to conditions in Africa
and Asia than I realized before I went
there. Jamaica, which became an independent nation only two years ago,
has great poverty and unemployment,
hideous, crowded slums in its only
city, Kingston, too few trained people
to staff many services, and too few
teachers for its rapidly expanding
population.
The island is so mountainous that
many districts are almost as isolated as they were a hundred years ago
and uneducated Jamaicans speak a
patois or dialect of English which is as
difficult   to   understand   as   a   foreign D. Brian Bayly, BA'62, the carving
teacher and two other teachers with
a Primary 4 class in Sarawak.
language. Jamaicans, who are about
80% black, about 15% colored (that
is, of mixed racial origins), and about
5% European, East Indian and Chinese, have strongly-marked characteristics and stubbornly-held beliefs
and attitudes, some of which are
legacies from slavery and colonialism.
In Jamaica, I visited two CUSO
volunteers who are working in a youth
camp high in the mountains, "being
Daddy," as they put it, to hundreds
of boys at a time, in a country in
which the family unit is often headed
by a mother or grandmother.
Another volunteer who is teaching
and supervising in an approved school
—that is, a reform school—for girls
told me that the highest compliment
the girls can pay her is to say that she
isn't white. "Because," the CUSO girl
explained, "to them white isn't a color,
it's an attitude they hate."
Some of the teachers in CUSO were
in such remote districts that I was
afraid to drive over twisting, climbing
roads to see them, and very unwilling
to risk the additional hazards of the
country's  atrocious  driving habits.
We were piloted through hazards
of another kind in the Kingston
slum to which we were taken by a
CUSO youth worker. He wanted us to
see the boys' club in which he had
been working for months, a club
which gives hundreds of children not
only their one chance of getting any
education or any training in a skill
but also their one hope of a meal a
day. We expected the wary dislike
with which strangers are eyed in that
district; what moved us very much
was the friendship and trust which
adults and children obviously felt towards the volunteer.
These young people are learning to
handle various kinds of isolation, to
accept physical discomfort and sometimes danger, to adjust to the attitudes
of a different culture, in the same
ways, if not in the same degree, as
volunteers in more remote areas such
as Sarawak or Tanganyika. To watch
them at work underlined for me the
importance of the CUSO precepts:
Volunteers share in the everyday life
of their host countries and should seek
every opportunity to meet all people
at all levels.
I learned also to appreciate the
importance of making the volunteer
programs a partnership between CUSO
and the participating country. This
means that CUSO supplies the volunteers, who are first screened by local
committees now set up in forty-five
colleges and universities across Canada,
and then screened again by a National
Selection Committee. But it is the
participating country or organization
which makes the specific requests for
definite kinds of volunteer service, and
accepts final responsibility both for
choosing the volunteer and for implementing the program.
CUSO provides orientation courses
in Canada and in increasing numbers
is    arranging   for    such    courses    in
participating countries; it supplies
some medical insurance for volunteers,
and, if necessary, gives them a supplemental allowance. But it is the hosts
who provide accommodation and a
basic salary, even though it may have
to be a small one.
In these arrangements responsibility
becomes a two-way street, and it is
in everyone's best interest to make sure
that each volunteer's work is a really
useful contribution to the self-help
programs  of an  emerging  country.
As of summer 1964 CUSO had 159
university graduates assigned to
volunteer posts for two years in seventeen countries. In this group twelve
men and six women are from UBC
with destinations which include Jamaica, Tanganyika, Ghana, Nigeria,
Sarawak, India, and Grenada. Our
campus also shares in the expanding
orientation program: the course in area
studies for Asia was given at UBC for
the first time this August, with the
Africa group going to McGill and the
West Indies group to Toronto. Because
teachers are the volunteers most in
demand in all participating countries,
a special training program for teachers
is given at the University of Toronto.
It is exciting to learn that the number of CUSO volunteers has more than
doubled since the organization was
formed two years ago. It was even
more impressive to learn at first hand,
as I did, how well these young people
are serving as unofficial but important
representatives of Canada.
19 Three Universities in fund drive
When British Columbia's three
public universities go to the citizens with a fund-raising campaign in
the near future, it will not be as
competitors but as partners. University of British Columbia, University
of Victoria, and Simon Fraser University as complementary units of the
province's system of higher education
are asking for financial support of the
principle to which they are all dedicated—that university education should
be available to every young man and
woman who is fitted for it.
One way or another, it is going to
cost British Columbians $68.7 million
to simply provide the physical plant
for educating the qualified young
people who will be seeking university
entrance by 1970. Premier Bennett has
promised that the government will
provide $40.7 million regardless of
what response there may be to the
appeal for voluntary donations. That
leaves $28 million of the total the
universities estimate their building
programs will require, and that is the
amount the public will be asked to
find.
Of the government funds UBC and
SFU will each receive $18 million,
UVic $4.7 million.
A percentage basis has been decided
on for allocation of the private
donations. UBC and SFU will each
get 42%, Victoria 16%. SFU, since it
is starting at ground level, will get the
first $4 million that is received in
cash from the fund drive, but this
will form a part of their percentage
of the total realized.
Private donors will be free to earmark contributions to specific institutions.
SFU, no more than a gleam in
President Macdonald's eye two years
ago, is planning to enroll its first
students (graduate physics students)
in a few months' time, considerably
in advance of completion of the first
stage in the building program atop
Burnaby Mountain. As an example of
the co-operation existing between the
three universities—UBC, which might
well be considered alma mater to the
others, UVic and SFU her children—
Simon Fraser will house these students
temporarily under the maternal  roof
and in return Dr. Rudolph Haering,
head of SFU's physics department,
will teach a graduate course at UBC.
The government grant, supported
by a successful fund drive, will give
UBC $29,760,000 for capital construction over the next five years, very close
to its estimated requirements of
$30 million plus. (Who is to be left
out in the rain has not been decided
at this point.)
The building program to be undertaken on these funds includes a multipurpose commerce-arts building, an
education building, a dentistry and
basic sciences building, a library addition. Next on the list are a forestry-
agriculture complex, a music building,
a metallurgy building, an addition to
the biological sciences building which
includes oceanography and fisheries,
completion of the applied science
complex, a social work building, and
various smaller improvements.
The army huts which represent 10%
of the University's present classroom
space may yet disappear from the
campus.
Alumni participation on increase
Donors, as well as non-donors, to
Alumni Annual Giving, are sometimes unsure of their attitude towards
AAG. Just how valid is UBC's claim
on them for financial support? Here
are the major questions and the
answers:
1. Did  I  put  myself  through  UBC?
Many graduates proudly say "I put
myself through university." Did they?
Tuition fees were earned but even
when the expensive major capital cost
items and general administrative expenses are eliminated, tuition still pays
only a fraction of the instructional
costs.
2. Did I benefit from UBC?
Education provides a richer, fuller
life. It gives the graduate the opportunity to earn an income higher than
that of persons without university
education.
3. Do I have a responsibility to UBC?
Your Alumni Association believes so.
The University in its financial plan
"The Challenge of Growth" stated it
depends upon gifts to provide 14% of
future funds for UBC. For UBC to
fulfil its obligation to its students and
to society the graduates who have
benefited from their education and
who appreciate the values of a university must assume their fair portion
of that responsibility.
4. Should  I  support  Alumni  Annual
Giving?
Graduates have an obligation to
support the university which they were
privileged to attend and from which
they benefited through graduation.
Through Alumni Annual Giving they
make a significant repayment on their
obligation in annual instalments.
Alumni  giving is a tangible  demon
stration of interest which strengthens
the University and which provides it
with independent support so essential
to   a   state assisted   university.
At the end of 6 months the UBC
graduate support of 1964 Alumni
Annual Giving continued strong—
$27,266.64 from 1,726 donors. Donors
more than doubled over the corresponding period of 1962 and increased
by 400 over the same period of 1963.
The theme of the campaign is
"Participation,  not  amount."
Alumni Annual Giving, which provides funds to meet the many special
needs at UBC received its strongest
support from graduates scattered
throughout Northern Ontario—38%
of them participated.
About half of the alumni supporters
in the first 6 months made unallocated
donations.

24 THE EVOLUTION of HOMECOMING '64
HOMECOMING AS AN EVENT did nol appear on the UBC campus unlil the University's
lllh year of existence—1926. But this four-day affair began what future years were to
observe as just a gala pageant, reflecting student effort and appreciation. Alumni attended,
however, eager to enjoy whatever the students had prepared. As a matter of fact, HOMECOMING became the highlight of the fall program each year until 1931.
Because of the lack of active support by alumni during those years, coupled with the
advent of the depression, HOMECOMING'S extensive program and prestige dwindled,
prompting a 1936 Ubyssey to state: "HOMECOMING DAY is generally thought of as a minor
function on this campus."
The completion of the stadium in 1937 and the increasing popularity of English rugby
and Canadian football gave HOMECOMING new impetus. It became an important two-day
affair until 1941, when again alumni and student efforts diminished, a casualty of the war.
It remained a very minor event in the post-war years, featuring a Big Block luncheon,
alumni dinner. General Meeting, and a Homecoming dance, plus football and basketball
games, all in one day.
The Boxing Day Ball superseded Homecoming as the most popular social event on the
alumni calendar. Only the alumni dinner represented a genuine effort by the grads to be
a part of Homecoming.
The year 1947 gave top billing to an alumni dance in Brock Hall but it failed to win
enough popularity to be continued. Occasionally small class reunions were organized but
they, too, were unsuccessful in generating a Homecoming spirit.
To-day's energetic alumni participation in Homecoming began in 1954. With Mr. Jack
Charlton presiding, ihe alumni planned a luncheon, reception and dinner, and gave active
support to the Homecoming Ball. It took the disastrous Brock Hall fire of October 25, 1954,
to force cancellation of the lunch and dinner. The following year the Alumni Association
formally organized class reunions and the luncheon. Educational panel discussions had
been added by 1958. The Homecoming Ball gradually changed to the present separate
student and alumni affairs.
The first year that marked a penetrating and fruitful search for the purpose of Homecoming was 1962. An extensive alumni committee of over fifty members, headed by Mr. Bill
Rodgers, worked closely with the student committee and devised the most varied and
extensive Homecoming program to that date.
Each year since then the Committee has taken on new and specialized tasks with a
complex organization nol unlike a large corporation. The thoroughness and efficiency
resulting, plus the new and beneficial union with the students, have made a true Homecoming an achievement of ihe not too distant future.

27 WELCOME to UBC
HOMECOMING 1964
Homecoming Chairman's Message:
HOMECOMING has been defined in several ways, but there are probably as many definitions
or meanings as there are alumni. However, one aspect that is common to all alumni who
participate in Homecoming is that they enjoy themselves. They have found that it is
enjoyable to meet former professors and renew friendships with alumni who were friends
in student days; that it is enjoyable to recall student days and where possible to participate in the special events that have been arranged; that it is interesting and enjoyable to
see what the campus looks like today and be brought up to date on current University
affairs.
This year the Homecoming Committee has endeavoured to follow the course of past
Homecoming Committees by broadening the range of activities in which the alumni will
enjoy participating. Make a point of attending the events of interest to you. We know you
will enjoy yourself.
Vern Houses
Homecoming Chairman
Reunion Chairman's Message:
CLASS REUNIONS are the backbone of Homecoming. Without the reunions of past
graduates a fundamental link would be missing from most Homecoming events. The
reunions offer a time and place to exchange memories, meet past school chums, and
generally have fun. The hard-working Homecoming Committee has planned a week of
attractions both educational and entertaining that should encourage the least nostalgic
graduate lo return to his Alma Mater.
Organized gatherings of graduates are being held this year for each five-year class
from 1919 to 1959. It is sincerely hoped that other classes will follow the lead and get
together on their own.
"It's fun to remember," so find out when your class reunion is being held and take an
active part.

Dr. Klinck
Honoured
Dr. L. S. Klinck, first member of
UBC's faculty, was honoured on August 4 at a tea arranged by Dean
Blythe Eagles in the Faculty Club.
The occasion marked the 50th anniversary of Dr. Klinck's appointment
to the faculty on August 1, 1914, and
his arrival in Vancouver on the 10th
of that month.
This year is also the 45th anniversary of Dr. Klinck's reluctant acceptance of the presidency on June 1,
1919.
Mrs. J. W. deB. Farris, only surviving member of the Board of Governors that made that appointment, was
among the guests. The party also
brought together the three successive
deans of the Faculty of Agriculture—
Dr. Klinck, Dr. Clement and Dean
Eagles.
Former Arts
Head Dies
Dr. H. T. J. Coleman, for twenty
years a member of the faculty of the
University of British Columbia, died
on June 10 this year at the age of
ninety-two.
Dr. Coleman was appointed Dean
of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at
the University of British Columbia in
1920. He was also head of the department of philosophy and psychology.
For health reasons he relinquished the
position of Dean in 1929 but continued as head of the department of
philosophy and psychology until his
retirement in 1940.
Prior to coming to the University
of British Columbia, Dr. Coleman was
Professor of Education at Colorado
State College, then Associate Professor
of Education at the University of
Toronto from 1907 to 1913, and
finally Dean of the Faculty of Education at Queen's University.
Dr. Coleman was one of four
brothers, sons of a farmer who wished
them to follow in his footsteps, who
all ultimately earned PhD degrees in
one  field  or  another.

GRADUATES HAVE DUTY
TO THEIR COMMUNITY
During the years we have been at
UBC, our lives have been channelled
towards this day. Many have gone before us, working in the factory on the
same job and leaving with the same
box of tools which we, ourselves, have
now manufactured. It is unfortunate
but necessary that in today's age of
mass education, manufacture of the
required box of tools necessitates an
organization resembling a factory production line. The tools manufactured
from such an education are the ones
that will enable us to get a job.
There are, however, other utensils
which we must have at our disposal.
They have not been manufactured on
the production line but have been
developed during our lunch hours and
many coffee breaks. By entering into
political, religious, and sociological
discussions, by joining clubs, by attending social functions and, in
general, by participating in the kaleidoscope of activities varying from
athletics to academic symposia, we
have acquired essential tools which
will enable us to work with people and
to help solve the problems facing
society today.
Now we have the basic equipment.
Now we must make our contribution
to society. Because we have a larger
box of tools than non-university graduates, our contribution must be that
much greater. In our particular fields
we must apply ourselves unsparingly.
We must strive for the best technique,
the most comprehensive theory, the
best work of art or the most efficient
operation. In order to contribute to
society we must build on the ideas
and principles we have been taught.
If we do not we are merely using the
tools in a mediocre way, resulting in a
complacent  and  selfish  society.
A more effective way to repay our
debt is to expand and to use the
"coffee break and lunch hour" tools
which we devised by entering into
extracurricular activities and participating in discussion. We must turn
our thoughts to the social problems of
our time. It is up to us to contribute
to society by coming forth with our
ideas and participating in the issues of
our time.
A university equips us only with the
essential tools. We must continue to
develop new tools and to throw out
those which we find corroded. If we do
not, our effectiveness in society will
soon fade.

address given by Peter B. Shepard,

Hermine Dorothea Bottger, BA '20,
a member of the staff of the University
of British Columbia for the last 44
years, died on April 17, 1964, in her
69th year.
She joined the staff in September,
1920, as secretary to Dean R. W. Brock
of Applied Science. Following his
untimely death in 1935 she was in
charge of the Applied Science reading-
room until 1952. Thereafter, by
arrangement of Chancellor Lett and
President MacKenzie, she had a special
post in the University Library up to
the time of her death. Besides having
French and Spanish, she was fluent
in German.
Her German-born parents brought
her to Vancouver when she was three
from Salem, Oregon, where she was
born. Her early education included
singing and piano and before entering
UBC she attended Normal School and
taught briefly. Her only brother,
Gavert, died last year.
Hermine Bottger was a familiar if
elusive figure on the campus, most
familiar to Applied Science students
for whom she had an abiding affection.
Vividly remembered by her classmates
as a raconteur of great wit, she had
many and varied interests which
found satisfaction in the university.
Her pleasures were pleasures of the
mind. She enjoyed to the full what
was important to her; what was to
her unimportant she ignored, such as
rules or styles of dress.
In nondescript costume she could
be seen slipping into a public lecture—
she attended most of them—or, with
book propped open, having a snack in
a coffee shop. Chance conversation
disclosed a charming cultivated mind
and a delightful sense of humour. An
encounter with her was a pleasure.
"Time is but the shadow of
eternity." That summed up her
philosophy of life, she said, when it
was quoted by an Indian exchange
librarian who visited the Library a few
years ago.
To her friends and acquaintances
she remains familiar, elusive and
memorable.

first prize from the Alliance Fran-
caise. She went on, in first year university, to repeat her mother's performance of thirty years ago by winning
a UBC scholarship for proficiency,
adding to it a Bank of Montreal Centennial scholarship (for three years).
In second year, where mother had
won the scholarship for highest combined marks in English and Latin,
daughter took the equivalent in English/French, besides adding a prize
for English.
Third year was more of the same:
UBC scholarship for proficiency,
French Government bronze medal for
French, Alliance Francaise travelling
scholarship.
And in fourth year, Bank of Montreal followed up its three-year scholarship with a fellowship worth $3000
for three years. Pat plans to use this
to work for a PhD in linguistics at
Yale, a logical succession to Honours
French at UBC. (Mother says she
dropped out of the "competition" for
honours far back.)
Believe it (because we must), Pat
found time for extra-curricular activities all through her university career,
acting on the executive of various organizations to which she belonged.
Pat's father, David C. Ellis, BA '32,
also a UBC alumnus, probably claims
that he set the pace for his daughter
when he took first-class honours in
classics. He was also a Big Block winner for rugby, but that represents a
talent daughter did not inherit.
Anyway, congratulations, best
wishes for the future, and welcome
to the ranks of the alumni, Pat!

we have not given them all that they

What You Don't Know Can Hurt You
YOU don't actually have to know more than a horse to train him
but you do have to convince the horse that you do. Same with
witch doctors and other ulterior individuals who set out to flummox
the citizenry; standard equipment with them is a mantle of mystery and an air of omniscience which make it much easier to sell
the snake oil or the genuine Kickapoo juice, for the customer who
becomes The True Believer is the one who doesn't know the score.
It follows that everyone should know the score and one of the best
ways, we think, is to keep track of what's going on in the world
by  following the  news  in  a comprehensive  newspaper  like  the  Sun.

42 This mathematical model in plastic
is opening the door to discovery
Actually, it's a mathematical formula in three
dimensions. It was built by Canadian General
Electric engineers. Adjustable to various patterns, it enables our research team to visualize
electronic signals under various processing
conditions. This unique model is one of
many scientific devices to be used in a
$2,700,000 research program in defence electronics. Applications would be in the communications, radar, missile, and space satellite fields.
Searching for tomorrow's values through research is another example of what we call
"engineered quality!'And it places the accent
on value whenever, wherever, you buy CGE.

46 Bank of Commerce offers
a special long-term
EDUCATION LOAN
The reason so many people are denied higher education is quite often
a financial one. We at the Bank of Commerce realize that the cost of
attending University has increased sharply over the past few years...
THUS WE ARE PLEASED TO OFFER THE BANK OF COMMERCE EDUCATION LOAN. This plan allows you to borrow an amount up to 80% of
the four basic educational expenses—tuition, books, room and board
and travel. When students take long courses, the total loan amount
may be as high as $8,000. Repayments are arranged through a
flexible system of low monthly instalments of principal and interest.
The period of repayment may extend up to two years longer than the
length of the course. Some repayment periods may be as long as
eight years.
This Bank of Commerce Education Loan Plan is designed to help
you help your child's future.
FREE BOOKLET: For information about the plan, call in at your
nearest Commerce branch for the free booklet "Education Loan
Plan" or write to 25 King Street West, Toronto 1, Ontario.
