combining the rugged atmosphere of the great West with
the gay come-hither mood of the summer months. The
awesome majesty of the Rockies is made less severe by the
sporting touch of the two pretty riders. Both join in

The recent announcement that the Assistant
Director of Physical Education has handed his resignation to the Board of Governors brings to a head
a most alarming situation that has long been in
existence at the University. For a number of years
it has been clearly apparent that the attitude of the
University policy makers towards physical education on the campus has been, to say the least, shortsighted and unproductive. Judging from the actions
of those who have been in control of the policy, the
view has been held that a program of physical education has little or no place in the life of a University.
In proof of this several points can be made. One
of these is the inadequate financial allotment that
has been given to athletics on the campus. The
salaries paid in the past to those in charge of physical education program has been ludicrous. Another
point is the establishment of arbitrary faculty or
professional standards that have prevented proper
recognition of those carrying on the work. Still another point has been the refusal of the authorities
in the past to accept assistance from persons outside
the University who wished to help.
The advantages of a first-rate Department of
Physical Education are obvious. Physical fitness
should be one of our main objectives. We need
but look at the results of army medical examinations under the national mobilization regulations to

realize  that  much  needs  to  be  done  to  raise  the
health standards of the youth of our country.
The value of an active athletic program to the
University is obvious to all who care to look. Not
only is student interest in the University made
greater, but also in future years such a program
helps keep the Alumni group together. Teams competing in wholesome athletic contests can be one of
the University's best advertisements among the
people of the Province.
The many friends of the present Director will be
sorry to see him leave. He has worked hard against
great difficulties and his results have been good. He
goes now to an even greater job in a progressive
new faculty which recognizes the need for services
such as his. It is to be hoped that our University
can find someone of his calibre to replace him.
Now is certainly the time for a change in the
University's policy. Those who are responsible
should look well at the problem and should toss
away the petty prejudices and narrow views of the
past. They have a great responsibility to the students, to the graduates, and. to the people of the
Province. Let them not fail in that responsibility
as they have in the past. There is definite need for
an independent Physical Education program, well
and capably run in the interests of all, and the time
to start is now.

Have you ever considered the motion picture as
a means of instruction as well as entertainment?
Although visual aids are one of the oldest devices
in teaching, it is only recently that those concerned
with education have made use of them in the educational process. We have all realized how powerful
the film is as a means of entertainment; we have yet
to explore its full possibilities in the field of education.
In the past fifteen years, there has grown up a
widely varied collection of instructional or documentary films. These films may be simply a visual
record of an experiment, such as an experimental
agricultural station may have carried out on field
crops or it may be a fresh presentation of a lively
social issue, for example, slum clearance. In all the
well made documentary films, the object is to portray as truthfully as possible the subject being
In Canada, the National Film Board has been
entrusted with the job of producing for Canadians
and indeed, the whole world, films on the Canadian
scene. In the past five years, films have been made
on Canadian art, labour-anagement production committees, agricultural methods, hygiene, post-war rehabilitation, recreation, the intricacies of unemployment insurance—in fact, on all subjects of vital interest to Canadians.
Through travelling field representatives, who put
on monthly film showings in small rural communities and through field representatives located in the

larger manufacturing centres, who put on showings
in industrial plants and in trade union meetings,
Canadians have been able to see the reflection of
their own lives in relation to society. There were
until recently, however, numbers of Canadians who
were not able to see documentary films in the ordinary course of their activities. To fill this need,
the National Film Board has co-operated with the
large and small communities of the country in setting up of volunteer projection facilities.
In British Columbia, fifteen of the larger communities in the province have already established
their own volunteer projection facilities, namely:
Victoria, Vancouver, New Westminster, Chilliwack,
Kamloops, Prince Rupert, Prince George, Armstrong, Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, Trail, Nelson,
Cranbrook and Kimberley. In a number of these
communities, the Junior Boards of Trade or Junior
Chambers of Commerce have encouraged this service as a part of their community programme, by
supplying operators and leadership. In other communities, film councils have been formed with representatives drawn from active community organizations.
Although the service details vary from town to
town, generally the plan embraces a complete set of
sixteen millimetre equipment — projector, speaker
and screen, which is available without charge to
any organization within the community. A corps
of volunteer  operators  are  trained  to  operate the

of shows each per month as part of their contribution to the progress of their community. The organization wishing the film showing, arranges to
obtain its own film through one of the three regional
libraries in the Province: the University Extension
Film Library, the Vancouver School Board Visual
Education Department or the Victoria Public Library. At their meeting place, they can have the film
shown to their members at their convenience.
Very few of the persons who, in their community
activities, meet together to see documentary films,
realize that the film is becoming one of the strongest
instruments in adult education today. Children are
required to attend school and through a well disciplined programme of instruction, are passed from
grade to grade and given the rudiments of education
required according to present standards. With
adults, the problem of education is much greater.
Many people say there is no need to continue the
process of education after leaving school and resent
any effort to bring instruction to them. There are
the handicaps which are presented by modern life,
such as fatigue after a day's work, pre-occupation
with one's own job, and other factors which make
adult education difficult to bring to the people who
need it most.
For reasons which probably the psychologists
could explain best, there is a strange fascination to
a film, when they would not read a book on the
subject or possibly even listen to a radio discussion
on the subject. Once an individual is seated in a
darkened hall, his complete attention is absorbed by
the film which is portrayed before him and from the
combination of sight with sound, the message of

film entitled "Fighting Sea-Fleas."
the film is imparted as effectively as any means
which has been presently found. For this reason,
producers of documentary films have been so greatly concerned with presenting a true picture, lest the
film become a means of indoctrination, as happened
in the Fascist countries.
The Alumni Association of British Columbia has
an opportunity, through its membership, to lend
qualified leadership to the volunteer projection services in each community. Each graduate of our
University owes a responsibility to the community
to do all that he can to raise the level of education,
not only amongst children but among those who
have already left school.
The showing of the film loses much of its value
if there is not discussion amongst those who see it.
Here, particularly, is where graduates of our University can make their contribution. A good documentary film tries to crystallize the various opinions
and points of view on the subject covered. The
audience may agree or disagree but only through
discussion can they obtain the maximum value from
the film itself and derive the greatest benefit to
themslves. Several community halls have been built
after the group of citizens saw a film dealing with
the need for well planned community recreation. A
small community on the North Thompson River is
building a swimming pool, largely as a result of
having seen a film on how to swim. Films have
been used to a great extent in British Columbia in
publicizing the need for measures to combat juvenile delinquency.
With the active support of each of the members
of the Alumni Association, British Columbia can
well lead the way in developing the most effective
community programme of adult education.
July-August, 1945
In Hfomortam
Almost every alumnus of the University of British Columbia will remember John Ridington and
will regret his passing on April 20th last. The late
Mr. Ridington was University Librarian for a period
of twenty-five years terminating with his retirement
in 1940.
At the time of his death he was in his seventy-
seventh year. Born in London, England, he came
to Canada in 1889. Then followed a varied career
in the new and lusty life of Western Canada. In
rapid succession he was a teacher, a journalist, a
business promoter, and a political organizer.
In September, 1915, he was asked to take over
the control of the University Library. The Library
was definitely in its infancy, consisting of a mere
700 volumes left over from the days of the McGill
University College in Vancouver. Mr. Ridington
established quarters in the celebrated Fairview
"shacks." Throughout the years of the University's
growth he was in charge of this most important
branch of the University. When the Point Grey
Campus was set up and the new Library Building
erected, he brought his ever-growing collection of
books to its present location.
In 1935 the Library had come to be one of the
three best in the Dominion and received a special
grant of the famous Library of Congress Catalogue,
valued conservatively at $65,000. Mr. Ridington
succeeded in obtaining from the Carnegie Foundation endowments totalling $25,000 and consisting
mostly of works of art and the well-known record
collection and equipment that have proved so valuable to the students of recent years.
In these years at the University, Mr. Ridington
became known to the students not disrespectfully
as "King John." This friendly name probably arose
from his celebrated Van Dyke style beard that was
the envy of many another member of the faculty.
When he left the University in 1940, Mr. Ridington had increased the 700 books he had originally
taken over to 125,000 volumes valued at almost a
million and a half dollars.
Mr. Ridington was also active outside the University. He was on the Vancouver Library Board
from 1915. He was a provincial library commissioner and for four years was President of the Canadian Library Association. He was also for a time
Chairman of the Carnegie Corporation Canadian
Library Survey. He also was a past president of
the Vancouver Institute.
One of his most active interests was the Masonic
Lodge and he was Secretary of the Western Gate
To countless graduates, Mr. Ridington will remain as a symbol of one of the great periods of the
University's history. During the long tenure of his
office he came to know thousands of students and
to be known by them. To his tireless efforts in
organizing and expanding the Library facilities
those students and the students who will attend the
University in the future owe a very deep debt.
Faculty  Changes
The Board of Governors have announced a number of changes in the Faculty. Prof. Walter H.

courses this year. The School of the Theatre was
in full swing under the able guidance of Dorothy
Somerset, with Mrs. A. G. Graham, Jack McCance
and Vivien Ramsay assisting. The courses included acting, speech, directing, stage craft and play
Dr. Warren E. Tomlinson, head of the Department of History and Political Science at the College
of Puget Sound, conducted a workshop on international relations. Dr. Mervyn Y. Miller, of Stanford,
conducted courses in audio-visual education.
As in previous years, noon-hour lectures on music were presented to enthusiastic crowds. Lecturers included Dr. A. F. B. Clark, Charles H. Scott,
L-a Dilworth, La wren Harris, Dr. Ida Halpern, Fred
Amess and Dr. G. G. Sedgwick.

Members of the Summer Session Executive included: John Goodlad, President; Jack Merrell. Secretary; Denise Roozeboom and Joe Smyth, Vice-
Presidents; Don Smith, Treasurer; Dick Cleland,
Men's Athletics; Loretta Murphy, Social Convenor;
Jean Kilgour, Campus Publicity; Jim Allen, Resolutions; and Joe  Phillipson, Nominations.
Professor Walter Gage, 25, was Director of the
Session. Thirty-three courses were listed in the
regular Calendar.
A great number of graduates and friends of the
University learned with regret recently that
Maurice "Maury'' Van Vliet, Associate Director of
Physical Education at the University for the last
nine years, has resigned to become processor and
head of the Department of Physical Education at
the University of Alberta. The new professor has
become almost an institution at the local campus
and it is difficult to see how he can be replaced in
the very near future.
Van Vliet graduated in '35 from the University
of Oregon and holds two degrees, a Bachelor of
Science and a Master's degree in the same field. He
is at present a candidate for the degree of Doctor of
Education at U.C.L.A.
He was born in Bellingham across the border
and engaged actively in athletics throughout his
public school days. At the University of Oregon he
was very successful in both baseball and football.
He was so successful at the diamond game that in
1936 he was offered a try-out with the famous New
York Yankees but turned it down in favour of starting his teaching career at U.B.C.
His record here has been an outstanding one.
He coached the Varsity football teams and won two
Hardy Cup Championships, representing the Western Intercollegiate Championship. This is more than
a fair record for in the past five years no Hardy Cup
games have been held. In one year his team won
10 out of-11 games and in the following it won 11
straight games, the entire season's schedule.
In basketball, teams coached by Van Vliet have
won the Canadian championship twice in recent
years, namely 1937 and 1941. They might have won
it this past year but the team was broken up to
allow the students to write examinations.
In track, his teams won the Pacific Coast Crosscountry championships in 1943 and 1944.
In recent years Maury has been most active in
the C.O.T.C, in which he holds the rank of major.
There he has been in charge of the physical side of
things for the local cadets.
Above all, perhaps, Van Vliet's influence has
been felt in making the gymnasium a place frequented by a great number of male students. He
has always been interested in organized physical
education and has helped in this line by promoting
intra-mural athletics.
His dream is to see a full physical education department at the University, with all the male students participating in a program of physical training.
Maury will take with him the good wishes of
countless students. He will long be remembered on
the campus and perhaps, one day when our own
physical education department is established, he
mav return.

The Graduate Chronicle 1 Sponsored Student Plan
Reprinted   by  permission   from   Western   Business
and Industry, April, 1945.
Practical application of a sponsored student plan
by the Lawrence Manufacturing Co. Ltd. of Vancouver, makers of logging machinery, is indicative
of a closer relationship developing between industry
and the University of B.C.
The president of Lawrence Manufacturing, D.
George Harrison, an engineering graduate of McGill, and the firm's general manager and secretary,
"Kel" Aikenhead, are enthusiastic about the results
of their four-year experiment and plan to continue
it indefinitely to build up a strong technical and
executive* organization.
"The officers of this company became convinced,
several years ago, that a serious economic waste in
B.C. existed in the fact that we were educating
young men in the University of British Columbia
and exporting them to the United States and eastern Canada," Mr. Aikenhead told "Western Business and Industry."
"We decided to do our part in making opportunities for U.B.C. boys. And we thought we should
start with boys still taking their courses and needing assistance."
First sponsored student of Lawrence Manufacturing was Hugh Christie, who had finished his second year of engineering at U.B.C. During the first
summer holidays, he went into the firm's drafting
room. In the following summer he worked in the
plant on assembly and machining work and in the
summer between his fourth and fifth years at Varsity he worked in the parts department to become
familiar with stock. His remuneration was the
hourly wage of a first-class helper. Any spare time
he had during the Varsity term he could put in at
the plant at the same rates. Now he is a junior engineer on full-time service with the company, calculating engineering problems and working as a
draughtsman and designer. Because of his thorough
familiarity with the firm and its work, his induction
into the business as a full-time worker was smooth
and without necessity of adjustment or further
training period. He was paid a salary which recognized his immediate usefulness to the company.
Before Christie was finished his course, another
engineering student, Ewen Galbraith, was sponsored. Unfortunately, Galbraith was called to the
Navy. The company regards him as one of its proteges, however, and wants him whenever he is available again.
To strengthen its "front office" or accounting
end, the firm last year asked for a lad from the
U.B.C. Commerce department. Prof. Ellis H. Morrow, head of that department, sent about six prospects and from them Don Hammersley—a second-
year student—was selected. Last summer he
worked in the office and in the parts department.
When he graduates, he will be ready to start on
the accounting staff, ear-marked for a quick rise to
senior status according to his capabilities.

At the annual Spring Congregation this year the University was honoured by the presence of
His Excellency, the Earl of Athlone, and the Princess Alice. The familiar march from the library
to the gymnasium was carried on under umbrellas but despite the inclement weather the occasion
was conducted with all the traditional ceremony and dignity of the many preceding congregations. His Excellency received an honourary LL.D. from the University and in return assisted
in the installation for his second term of the University's Chancellor, the Honourable Eric W.
Hamber, Mr. Hamber was elected to the Chancellorship to fill the vacancy created by the death
of the late Dr. McKechnie last year. In the spring of this year Mr. Hamber was re-elected by
acclamation for a period of three years.

Back from two years' overseas' service with the
R.C.A.F. is Fit. Lt. Lionel Herbert Salt, (above),
and just in time for his wedding to Margaret Reid,
'44. The event took place on July 20th at Vancouver. Fit. Lt. .Salt was a well-known figure on the
campus in his  Uni\ er^ityixhiys.    He spent several
years on the Editorial Board of the "Ubyssey" and
was also Editor of the "Totem." Some well-known

The Provincial Government has made a special
grant to the University for the establishment of a
Faculty of Law this coming fall. The President
has announced that the new course will probably
start in October. A great many lads returning from
overseas have already resumed or started their law
studies. The present plan calls for at least one full-
time professor with other lectures being given by
practising members of the profession. Most of the
lectures will probably be given on the campus but
some will be given downtown.
* *        *
Margaret Packer, '36, who in private life is the
wife of Fit. Lt. Robert Francis, is now with the
British United Press overseas. For nine months
she has been writing daily stories for Canadian
readers. She has also been conducting a radio program over the C.B.C. One of her most interesting
assignments on the airwaves was an interview with
Sir Bernard L. Montgomery. Her biggest thrill,
however, was probably in being the only woman
present when the Nazi Surrender was signed by the
German representatives. She was one of sixteen
correspondents present and all except Margaret
were of the male sex.
There is some likelihood that the overcrowding
at the University this fall will force the University
authorities  to use the C.O.T.C.  Armories  and the
Brock Building for classroom space. The enrollment is expected to be the largest in the history of
the institution.

U.B.C's President wants you to get vital information contained in the CHRONICLES. Therefore it is being sent at Alumni Association expense,
to as many grads as the Association can possibly
afford. Statements setting forth the cost of operation and subscription were mailed recently. The
tragically small group of "Old Faithfuls" responded
promptly. In fairness to them, circulation should
be limited, but in justice to the future greatness of
U.B.C. it must be far greater. We entreat the Old
Faithfuls to bear with the executive in its critical
decision in this matter. Those who have not contributed have, we are sure, failed to do so only-because of the pressure of work under which all are
now working. We feel certain of your desire to
contribute at least your minimum share ($3.00) toward what the Alumni can do to help build U.B.C.
for the benefit of your children. If you can possibly
make  it  more   than  $3.00,  it  is   urgently  needed.

We are—we are—we are the Engineerettes—
Even the Sciencemen's faces are red this year, for
their most sacred precincts have been invaded. For
the first time in recorded history, three pretty coeds took the summer field survey course at the
University. This course is conducted each spring
for stucrents in the second year Applied Science.
This Spring the three young women gathered up
their traverses and levels and proceeded to outdo
their male associates at the business of surveying
the University campus. The course was a twelve-
day one and the girls took it with flying colors.
One of the co-eds is Lorna Lang, who hopes eventually to do research in the field of chemical engineering. Another is Miss Margaret Stokkeland of
Ucluelet. The%hird is Charlotte Christopher of
North Vancouver, who intends to obtain the double
degrees of Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of
Rehabilitation—Feminine Style—The University
has instituted a special series of courses for discharged personnel of the women's forces. This
spring five of the ladies have been enrolled on the
campus in a special two months' course. Each girl
can pick two subjects towards a degree and then
away they go. The five in question are all members
of the Air Force and they are Stella Warden, Edith
Chapman, Vera Kleiver, Dorothy Gratton-Smith,
and Iola Pondev. Stella and Edith are both wireless operators while Vera is now intent on a nursing career. Dorothy and Iola are both interested in
zoology. The girls are all attending Varsity under
rehabilitation Benefit No. 5, which provides for the
continuance of education interrupted by entry into
the armed services.
Ottawa Wedding Bells—One of the better
known alums, Mrs. Phyllis Gregory Turner, was
married in Ottawa on April 21 to Franck Mackenzie
Ross, eastern business executive. Mrs. Ross studied
at the London School of Economics and the University of Marburg in Germany. In 1934 she was
appointed chief research economist of the Tariff
Board in Ottawa. Since the start of the war she has
been Administrator of Fats and Oils for the Wartime Prices and Trade Board and as such has had a
most important part in Canada's war effort. She
has now resigned .from the latter post and will return soon with Mr. Ross to Vancouver, where they
will reside.
Hitch-hiking across Canada from Vancouver to
Toronto in 30 days was the unique experience of
Barbara Greene, '45, and her friend, Joan Smith.
The trip was full of thrills for the two girls. They
intend to spend the summer on the staff of a summer
lodge. In the fall, Barbara will enter the Social
Service course at the University of Toronto.
In early April the. B. C. Parent-Teacher Federation presented a cheque for $20,000 to the University for a chair of economics. The Federation started
its fund a number of years ago.

Of great interest to many former members of
the Publications Board staff was the wedding in
late July of Margaret Reid to Arthur Salt. Margaret was the Editor-in-Chief of the "Ubyssey" dur
ing the 1943-44 year. Arthur, who has just returned
from several years overseas with the R.C.A.F., held
numerous positions on the "Ubyssey" staff and was
editor of the "Totem."
Farm Expert—Miss Echo Lidster of Vancouver
is the new temporary assistant to the district agriculturist at the thriving city of New Westminster.
This makes her the first woman to hold an official
post in this department of our government. Miss
Lidster came to Langley Prairie from Manitoba in
1930 and for a number of years was very active in
junior club work. She attended the Faculty of Agriculture at the University and graduated in 1942.
She became field supervisor for Westminster Can-
ners Ltd. and later was a community councillor
with one of the wartime boards in North Vancouver. Latterly she has been with the Dominion Government at Edmonton.
LAW Helen Woodcroft, B.A. '42, was mentioned
in dispatches in the King's Birthday List in June.
At U.B.C. she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. After graduation she joined the R.C.A.F. (W.

with the first contingent of operation's room W.D.'s.
She has served with fighter command and bomber

The other day a grad. said, "It seems to me the
Alumni Executive is always asking for money."
"Hell yes," I replied, "of course we are." Then we
had a bit of a discussion, in which a few points
came out as to WHY.
The main reason we are always asking is simply
because most grads are too busy to react to one,
two, or even several requests for the paltry sum of
the annual expense estimated at $3.00 per head.
What is of more interest to most, however, is why
the money is needed, and what is our financial program. Quite frankly, the last is a most embarrassing question. Our financial program can be no more
satisfactory than our means of raising funds. Admittedly past and present methods have not given
the desired result. A lot of thought has been given
to the problem and alternate plans thought up that
we hope may solve the difficulty.
The main needs for money have been as follows:
(1) Chronicle
(2) Office expense
(3) Part-time secretary.
Most of the above expenses are in connection
with an attempt to disseminate amongst grads and
other interested people information about the University, its needs and its plans for the future of
your province and your children. The job is growing steadily and becoming so important that a full-
time secretary is now needed.
The Board of Governors thinks our work and
the position of a competent secretary so important
that it has arranged for material financial assistance
to permit immediate expansion of our efforts. With
that assistance we hope to carry on the good work.
It is our aim, however, to put the association on
such a basis that it will not be a burden upon the
Board of Governors, but rather that it will be a
help to the University. We want to help the University, not only nebulously, by the dissemination
of accurate and interesting information, but also
eventually, concretely, by the contribution of financial support. The help would probably be either
in the form of appropriations of our surplus to the
Board of Governors for purposes not covered in its
regular budgets, or in the form of bursaries.
I can assure you that any suggestions that
would be acceptable to the Alumni as a whole and
would help us toward our goal of assisting the University would be heartily welcomed by the executive.    How about a letter to the Editor.
PETER FOWLER, Treasurer.
The University's New Classes
President, U.B.C. Veterans' Students
I believe that I speak for every Returned Veteran Student attending U.B.C. when I say that we
feel we have been given a wonderful opportunity to
fit ourselves for the years ahead and to re-adjust
ourselves to civilian life again.
The University of British Columbia deserves a
great deal of credit in having been the first of the
Canadian Universities to adopt a series of courses
especially designed for men and women discharged
from the Armed Forces. That other universities
approve of the example set by U.B.C. is evidenced
by the speed with which they have followed the
path blazed by our University.
Naturally, in giving credit to" an organization
such as U.B.C, the credit goes in its entirety to the
faculty and personnel responsible for the policies of
the University. Invaluable help and advice have
been given to our group by the staff and executive
in amounts far exceeding that which would be given
the regular students . . . and we do appreciate it.
We needed the help badly at times and it was al-'
ways forthcoming . . . and with a smile!
There are approximately 283 students registered
in the Spring Session and a great number of us will
be going on into the Summer Session. Our numbers are made up of all ranks and the courses are
just as varied. In the special course which started
in January and finished at the end of April, the results were exceedingly good with a very low percentage of supplementals to be written.
Thank you, U.B.C. We are only the vanguard
of the many more to come, so carry on with the
job you are doing so well under extremely difficult
Dr. L. T. Rader has been appointed Director
of Electrical Engineering at the Illinois Institute of
Technology at Chicago. He received his doctor's
degree from the California Institute of Technology.
Later he was employed by General Electric at
Schenectady for eight years.
The promotion of William W. Donovan, 1108
Corning Street, Los Angeles, Cal., from the rank of
first lieutenant to captain has been announced by
Lieutenant General James H. Doolittle, commanding general of the Eighth Air Force.
Captain Donovan is a member of a fighter squadron in the 56th Fighter Group. He serves as engineering officer with his organization. His section
consists of 120 enlisted men—crew chiefs, mechanics, electricians, radio-repairmen, and technical
clerks—who maintain, overhaul and repair the P-47
Thunderbolts assigned to the squadron. It is up to
Captain Donovan to see to it that every fighting
plane is in tip-top condition at all times and ready
for combat duty at a moment's notice.
Formerly a stationary engineer with the Canadian Gold Exploration Corporation of Washington
and Vancouver, British Columbia, Capt. Donovan
enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, June,
1940. Transferring to the United States Army Air
Forces in May of 1942, he entered officers' candidate
school, Miami Beach, Fla., and was commissioned
a second lieutenant on October 28, 1942. He attended U.B.C.

In recent years one of the best known members
of Thunderbird championship basketball teams was
Alex "Brud" Matheson, pride and joy of the Queen
City by the Fraser. Brud has brought many a Varsity supporter to his feet with his doings in the
hoop arena.   Now he's been in the news again.
This time it is Major Matheson of the Canadian
Scottish Regiment and the South Saskatchewans.
He went overseas in June, 1942, and served with
distinction with the First Canadian Army.
Early in May he was serving with the South
Saskatchewan Regiment in the Battle of Germany
near the great German city of Oldenburg, capital of
the North-West province of the same name. For
two weeks the unit had been fighting desperately at
the approaches to the city. Finally at 7 p.m. on the
night of May 3rd the Regiment entered the town.
Major Matheson, in command of a company, seized
the vital telephone exchange with its equipment and
operators. He also captured the Chief Inspector of
the Oldenburg police, who informed him that the
Germans were ready to stop fighting and that the
Canadians should get in touch with the burgomeis-
ter. The result was a series of telephone conversations using the newly captured exchange. In the
end the German garrison withdrew and the city was
taken by the Canadian troops.
Besides his basketball activities, Major Matheson was also a member of the championship Adanac
lacrosse team. His brother, Sqdn. Ldr. Ken Matheson, D.F.C, has also been on active service overseas with the R.C.A.F.   •

at Vancouver Military Hospital on June  15,  19451,.
He was in his thirty-eighth year.    Lieut. Madeley
was born in Japan and was educated botrnthere and
in England before coming to Canada in the twenties.
He  entered  U.B.C.  and  studied  civil  engineering.
While on the campus he became famous for his wit,
becoming indeed almost a legendary figure because
of it. In 1912 he received his B.A.Sc. and became
an engineer with the Pacific Great Eastern Railway
with headquarters at Squamish. He had been a
member of the C.O.T.C. at University and subsequently joined the Reserve Militia. In 1940 he went
overseas in the ranks with the First Survey Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. In 1942 he returned
to Canada and took his commission at Gordon Head.
He then instructed at Petawawa for a short period
and returned overseas in 1944. There he was on
special duty until he was invalided home in March,
1945. He leaves his wife and four-year-old son

he likes Toronto and nine times out of 10 he—or
she—will say, "Yes!" But the probable reason, subconscious or conscious, is because of the free-and-
easy, friendly, natural greeting of a Vancouver girl.
Toronto, sometimes described as stiff and standoffish, doesn't have a change to strike Hollywood
stars that way. Before they are well out of the
echoing corridors of the Union Station, or before
they step off the wind-swept airfield, they feel right
at home.
They meet "Cec" Long, a St. Anthony and a
1932 University of British Columbia graduate, and
now greeter-de-luxe for Victory Loan rallies, in
charge of all publicity for Victory Loan stars.
More than 70,000 lines of publicity about the
stars have rolled off her typewriter into print since
she was chosen to do her part for Victory Loan two
years ago and more is due to roll when Beatrice
Lillie arrives there for the spring drive.
Cecelia, daughter of Mrs. G. S. Wrinkle, formerly of Vancouver, has met, done shopping for,
written telegraphs for, found silk stockings and
recommended the place to get "a good thick steak"
for such stellar lights as Orson Welles, Helen
Hayes, Joan Fontaine, Ingrid Bergman and Alex
Templeton—to mention only a few.
The countless personal notes and warmly autographed photos testify to the friendly memories the
actors and actresses carry away with them.
The job didn't "just happen" to her. Eight years
asro she  went east  from  Vancouver,  after a brief
. . . We&t&ui SbfL
(as appearing in The Vancouver Dailv Province,
May 5, 1945)
span as advertising saleswoman for a small shopping magazine in her home town.
Jobs weren't any too plentiful in 1937. She lie-
came a telephone salesman for classified advertising
on a Toronto paper at $16 a week.
At nighttime, she took a shorthand and typing
course, which gave her a step up the ladder, for
Claire Wallace, then broadcasting "Tea Time Topics," was looking for a secretary and a news scout.
Cec walked herself into the job and did so well that
when Miss Wallace fell ill, Cec took over "Tea Time
Topics" on the air from March to May, 1941.
One of her prized possessions is a gold, white
enamel cigarette case, modernistically designated
with the letters of the station, the date, a microphone and the words "Jitters" and "Scoops"—both
of which Cec says she had in those seven hectic
weeks. Inside the case is written "With thanks and
love, Claire Wallace."
Today, besides her volunteer job as Victory
Loan worker, Cec is one of the few women in Canada to be accounts executive for a Dominion-wide
advertising agency. She has what is probably the
dream job of all advertising women, being head of a
large beautician's account for Canada, as well as for
several other outstanding national accounts.
She is also international public relations director
for Alpha Gamma Delta fraternity, of which she
became a member at U.B.C.; she's on the executive
of the Toronto Women's Advertising Club and commentator for her fraternity's style shows.-
Cec is the example that western girls can "make
good" in the bigger cities in Canada. Her western
stamina, enthusiasm and drive helped her get there
—and what is most important, she hasn't lost her
friendly, natural charm on the way up.

Salary to Start at $2,500 Per Year.
Must Be a Graduate of U.B.C. and Competent in Public
Relation Work.
First Consideration Will Be Given to Returned Men.
Applicants please write to:
G. E. Baynes, President,
U.B.C. Alumni Association,
1010 Seymour Street.
The Alumni Association must have a Permanent Secretary.
Gradates from U.B.C. are interested in the
welfare of their University, and likewise the
University is interested in graduates. This is
as it should be.
It is through the Alumni Association that
this interest is maintained, and each year a
large Executive is elected to do this work. The
effort consists mainly of contacting interested
graduate groups and others throughout Canada, giving them news of their University and
asking for their opinions on university administrations. The Graduate Chronicle, published
six times a year, goes out to some 5,000 graduates, as well as to members of parliament and
many other interested citizens.
Our Association has been the watchdog of
University administration and should, at the
same time, be the ambassador of goodwill.
If this effort is to expand with any continuity, we must have a permanent Secretary
in our office at the Brock Hall. This person
should have a large circle of friends in this
province. He will have to be energetic in his
efforts to contact graduates and others. He
will be our Public Relations officer, our publisher, and our collector of news and fees. The
job should develop into a large one in a very
few years. He will have to be able to speak for
the University and also listen to the demands
of the people of the province.

Page 27 Second Interim Report of the Committee on
Association Finances, April, 1945
The Alumni Association has set up a committee to
inquire into finance. We print herewith an interim report of that group. It is to be noted that tins is a report of the committee only and is printed to obtain
Alumni reaction. The recommendations have not necessarily been subscribed to by the members of the Executive.
Primary Objective and Purpose of Alumni
In considering the financial affairs of the Association, it is necessary first to determine the basic
fundamental reason for its existence. Next, we must
consider how this purpose is to be fulfilled most satisfactorily for the longest possible period.
It is not deemed fitting or desirable that the
Alumni Association should exist only for itself, for
social entertainment, sports facilities, etc. The record of Alumni activities and interests, particularly
during the past few years, has shown rather that
we are interested in the operation development of
U.B.C, so that it may best serve the educational
wants of the province and satisfactorily discharge
its obligation to make all forms of higher education
accessible to the people of B. C. This is the primary purpose of the Association, and all interests and
activities will continue to be and supported by graduates only if they contribute to the basic cause of
advancement of educational principles in the Province of B. C.
Simply, the University is the only basic excuse
for existence of association and only as association
continues to assist in the growth of the University
is that existence justified.
Accordingly, it is with this principle firmly established will we proceed to consider the financial affairs of the Association.
Sources of Income
To perform adequately the functions of the Association, dependable and continuous sources of income are necessary.
Two general types of income are desirable—one.
to meet operating expenses, and the other in form
of financial assistance to University. The financial
assistance to University is not so important for its
material and monetary value as it is of paramount
significance as an expression and reflection of goodwill and moral support of the ideal of making higher
education available to the people of B. C. on a merit
The sponsoring of a University fund or bursary
scheme has a far reaching and beneficial effect on
the community life and national thinking of the
people, which is of foundational importance in the
development of a nation. For when students realize
that University education is being offered them not
so much to improve themselves as individuals and
give them tools for higher earning power, as it is to
make them better citizens, we will have succeeded
in starting the people of B. C. on a progressive phase
of the development of Canada to a great people.
These secondary, but very important aspects of
different sources of income, are to be kept before us
as we proceed with consideration of financial problems.
The following is an abbreviated list of possible
sources of income :—
A. Subscriptions to Publications.
is. Advertising income from publication.
C. Goodwill donations for specific cause.
I).  Fees of Association
1. Annual.
2. Life.
I-*,.  Donations to Alumni Association from—
1. University administration.
2. Membership and friends.
F. Subscriptions to—
1. University fund.
2. Bursary fund.
3. Alumni All-Purpose University Fund.
Subscriptions to Publications
A publication which circulates only on subscriptions basis is valued more highly and read more
thoroughly. Further, it is generally accepted that
subscriptions develop a reading group that advertisers are interested in.
Free distribution breeds contempt and fosters
belief that advertisers are financing the publication
which is always far from the truth. Free distribution, even spasmodically, seriously conflicts with obligations to those who have already paid subscriptions. We conclude that in every field of publication work, the subscription basis is the only workable and satisfactory basis for distribution.
Advertising Income
Advertising as a source of income is generally
accepted, for it can in good measure, contribute to
publication costs. Particular attention should be
given to institutional advertising contracts, for they
are usually of long duration, and once obtained require very small carrying charges and sales effort.
All successful goodwill donation schemes irrespective of purposes or cause they benefit, require
considerable and strenuous effort. Reference is
made to Brock Building campaign which was disappointing in results obtained.
After a number of such efforts have been flouted,
the donor becomes fatigued and feels that he is being imposed upon, particularly if benefactor is an
association or club.
Membership Fees
1. Annual.
Annual fees offer a good source of income, but
carry an obligation to return a certain material
value to the individual. If this return is of an indefinite, rather obscure nature, at present or in future, continuity of payment frequently ceases. Annual fees require billing, receipting and recording
For the amount of clerical work entailed, $1.00
per year  is  a  small  return.    A  larger  fee  for  an
Page 28
The Graduate Chronicle Alumni Association is not justifiable, unless it carries subscription to the association publication.
Therefore, best results are obtained if annual
fee and publication subscription are lumped together
as one item. This is essentially what has been done
during the last year and has resulted in betterment
of financial position by several hundred dollars.
It is regretted a billing procedure has not been
in operation sooner, so that paying members will be
invited to continue their support this year.
2. Life.
When a life membership fee exists in any organization, there is a tendency for both the paid-up
member and the association to lose interest in each
other. It is highly desirable in University Alumni
Association that frequent contacts be made and a
healthy interest maintained at all times. When a
life fee is paid there is a finality about the deal which
will tend to perpetuate a lack of interest on part of
paid-up member in affairs and ideals of association.
A life fee also entails the keeping of exhaustive
clerical records, and carries a large obligation on
part of Association which is frequently difficult to
Where an association such as ours may have any
changes in policy and purpose in a period of thirty
to fifty years, it is rather difficult to ascertain life
fee of a size which will adequately meet all future
exigencies. Changing of fees as these exigencies
change, is awkward and inadvisable, because paid-
up members carry a light burden compared to that
carried by those following.
A policy of life fees for financing an Alumni Association present many controversial facets, and
does not appear to satisfactorily meet the changing
requirements  of  an   Alumni  Association.
Donations to Association
1. From University Administration.
A questionnaire to a number of university alumni groups has shown that a large number are in
receipt of financial grants or assistance in one manner or another from their university. This assistance is largely justified in that it helps in financing
the alumni office and staff expenses, whose function
is mainly directed toward public goodwill work on
behalf of the university.
Where an Alumni University Fund is operated,
there is a financial income to the University which
offsets and soon exceeds the running expenses of
Alumni organization which are being carried by the
University wholly or in part.
2. From Graduates and Friends.
A donation scheme benefitting the Association
will replace all conflict of different subscription efforts, fees, life fees, etc. It can have a continuity
from year to year which, after being established for
a few years, largely carries itself.
It is flexible and can be increased for any special
cause, purpose or changed requirement that may
occur in future by merely intensifying effort applied, without changing its character or fundamental
It makes possible very large and helpful donations if the cause really merits such support. This
scheme helps to keep policy of an Association such
as Alumni on a high commendable course, elevating
it to its proper place well ahead of other community
associations, such as professional or social pleasure
A minimum amount can be stipulated as carrying subscription and membership privileges ; balance
can be apportioned to building of bursaries.
the new Graduates who have joined the impressive total of those who have entered the professional, industrial, and commercial world from
the University of British Columbia.
We are deeply conscious of the fact that
Victory in Europe is not the end—that there is
still a cruel and crafty enemy to overcome; but
the  days  of   harrowing   uncertainty  are  over.
"Peace on Earth" is no longer a wishful sentiment, but has become a visible reality, a promise on which we can begin to base our hopes
and build our lives.
We have been spared the actual physical impact of War. For this, and for the safety and
security which have been ours in those years
through which whole peoples lived constantly
in the Shadow of Death, let us give thanks,
humbly and gratefully.
Bright years lie ahead, for us and for those men
who bore the burden and the heat on land and
sea and in the air. For them, this great Province of British Columbia, so majestically beautiful, so rich in all that Nature has to give,
holds a welcome and a promise, a serenity in
which to rebuild their lives, and to go on in the
peace and happiness which they have done so
much to win for themselves and for us all.
For its young people it holds the same promise, offers the same bright future. There is
today no part of Canada which offers more or
better inducements than

Page 29 The main objection to such donation scheme is
necessity for selling the purpose and need of Alumni Association to many people every year. Unfortunately, many feel that an Alumni Association is
an unnecessary proposition, and if it exists purely
and simply for its own selfish interests, they are
quite correct.
1. To University Fund.
The University Fund method has satisfactorily
been used by other universities to raise money for
a specific project such as expansion, etc.
For a private institution advantages of this plan
are greater than for a provincial university obligated
to serve the educational needs of a province. Such
a fund cannot be happily applied to extension of
building, etc., when such have previously been provided by the government.
Therefore, sponsoring of a pure university fund
by an Alumni Association would not adequately fulfill the needs of association nor completely discharge
its rather elusive and undefined obligation to the
2. Bursary Fund.
Sponsoring of a Bursary Fund by Alumni Association places their efforts in a field wherein much
needs to be done ,and where probably no other party
could achieve as satisfactory and productive results.
However, such an effort purely benefitting a bursary program may not be as acceptable as an all-
purpose University fund.
3. Alumni University (All-Purpose)  Fund.
Such a fund scheme directed towards welfare of
the University student by providing bursaries, loan
fund, or other needs that may be required from time
to time will surmount most, if not all the obligations mentioned above. For a fund which will be
directed towards the welfare and improvement of
higher education is in accordance with the fundamental purpose of the Alumni Association and will
merit generous and unquestioning support from all
friends of the University.
So, if this is recognized as a fundamental policy,
all efforts are indirectly, but surely directed, into the
proper channels of high ideals and will merit a high
standing among all community efforts. Thus, with
an Alumni University Fund scheme which can be
applied to non-grads as well as grads, we succeed
in gathering support from a larger group of very
interested people.
This method of financing has proven to be satisfactory in low administration cost, and higher maintained income for the University by an increasing
number of Alumni Associations in America.
An executive secretary acting also as Fund Administrator, employed on a salary-plus-bonus basis,
is important adjunct to a total overall success of
Alumni efforts. Obviously the Alumni publication
is closely tied into the main effort and will greatly
facilitate its success.
Now it is necessary to meet the running expenses
of the Association. This money must directly or
indirectly be derived from the Alumni University
Fund if advantages of low administration costs are
to be enjoyed together with the simplicity and effectiveness of a single annual appeal of Alumni University Fund.
One direct method is to arrange so that a minimum amount of say, $3.00, can be detailed as carrying subscription and membership privileges, the balance of the Fund subscription to accrue to the University.
It would also make possible for members of each
new graduating class to keep in close touch with
the University for a nominal sum. Collection of this
sum could best be arranged by graduating class executive or by University administration.
Non-graduates would be welcomed as associated
members of Alumni Association without voting privileges.
A direct way of financing office and administrative expense of an Alumni office is by University
grant, or direct carrying of such expense. This
would permit all of Alumni University Fund subscriptions to accrue direct to the University.
Points requiring further consideration include
the following:
1. Development of plan for annual fund campaign utilizing class organizations or geographical
scheme of U.B.C. clubs.
2. To determine Alumni Association relation to
the University administration and evolve best method of carrying Alumni office expenses.
3. To consider what effect possible co-ordination
of Alumni and convocation will have on scheme of
operating finances.
1. It is concluded that the Alumni University
Fund is best major method of fulfilling the fundamental purpose of the Alumni Association.
2. It is concluded that subscriptions and advertising income are important minor methods of supplementing financial income of Association.
3. University grants to meet office expenses are
very feasible and are concluded to be justifiable if
Alumni University Fund is organized.
4. It is recommended that every effort be made
to consolidate full support of new graduating classes
to block subscription and membership for at least
one year in association.
5. It is recommended that this Interim Report
be accepted, published and circulated to all U.B.C.
clubs and association members with request for discussion.
6. It is recommended that this Committee be
empowered to continue to consider points enumerated in this Report and bring in detailed plans for
installation and operation of an Alumni University

The Graduate Chronicle LETTERS
Dear Mr. Editor:
I have just written a letter to Miss Fallis asking
her to elicit the help of the graduates in the problem
of housing women students for next year. I wonder
whether the Graduates' Executive would be willing
to assist in bringing the problem to the attention of
the graduate body as a whole. As you know next
year will bring a record attendance to the University. The hundreds of additional students must be
housed, and only co-operation from those interested
in the University's welfare can find accommodation
at this difficult time. I am, of course, immediately
interested in the problem of the women who cannot
be housed in makeshift quarters. Homes must be
found into which they can be received. Most of the
increased attendance, however, will be male and the
problem, therefore, is wide enough to elicit the attention of the Graduates' Society as a whole. I have
just talked the matter over with Dr. MacKenzie and
am writing you at his suggestion. Anything that
the Graduates' Society can do would be appreciated.
Sincerely yours,
Dean of Women.

are chemical synthetics, which have their origin in such
substances as limestone, coal, salt, water and air. Sawdust, wood pulp, asbestos, chopped rags—all these are
used in the making of plastics!
WHAT CAN PLASTICS DO? Plastic mouldings
can resist oil, water, chemicals and heat. They can be
made as flexible as rubber, as rigid as stone. They can
be moulded speedily into innumerable simple or complicated shapes. They can be fashioned easily into beautiful
fabrics; spun into silk-fine stockings.
HOW CAN   PLASTICS  BE  USED?   During the
war plastics have gone into action as plane, tank and
ship components, and as fusecaps for shells and grenades.
When peace returns they will find a host of uses —
in homes, in industry, in transportation.
WHAT ABOUT COSTS? Because they are readily
produced in quantity, plastics provide an economical
solution to the problem of making many articles that
are needed in large numbers. Canada is well provided
with the raw materials for plastics.
