A highlight of the meeting was the
introduction and approval of an extraordinary resolution providing for the
granting of memberships in the Association to persons "other than graduates or
former students, who have demonstrated
an active interest in the objectives of the
A second resolution approved the use
of the term "community members" to
describe the persons who fall into this
category. The same resolution stated
that community members shall not constitute more than 30 per cent of the total
membership of any branch or 30 per cent
of the total membership of the Alumni
Later in the evening the incoming
president, Mark Collins, declared Mr.
Barry Mather, one of the speakers at
the meeting, the first community member
in recognition of his interest in the
The purpose of introducing the motion,
it was explained, was to allow the
Association to grant membership to many
persons who were not graduates, but
who had. by their efforts during and
after the development fund drive, demonstrated an interest in U.B.C.
Other features of the evening were
reports by Norman Hyland, the retiring
president, and John Haar, acting-director
of the Association. Mr. Hyland termed
the past year one of "experiment, growth
and action." Experiments mentioned
were the three seminars held in conjunction with 1958 Homecoming, broadening
of the basis of representation in the
Association, and the formation of the
Seattle organization known as the
"Friends of the University of British
Columbia Incorporated," which undertook to collect donations to the development fund from graduates living in the
United States.
Mr. Hyland also pointed to the growth
of branches of the Association which
can now form on a geographical or
common interest basis. U.B.C. graduates
living in Toronto organize on a geographical basis, he said, but branches in
the Vancouver area are organizing to
carry out activities in fields useful to
the  University.
Other examples of effective action in
the past year were carried out on a
faculty basis, he said, and he mentioned
the sub-committees made up of applied
science and medicine graduates which
had made recommendations to the
administration on matters relating to
curriculum  and  staff appointments.
Actions of the executive committee of
the board of management were also outlined by Mr. Hyland. He said an alumni
delegation had met with a committee of
the provincial cabinet in connection with
the annual provincial allocation to the
University for operating purposes. A
second committee, headed by J. E. Kania,
B.A.Sc. '26. M.A.Sc. '28, Ph.D. (M.I.T.),
had submitted a comprehensive brief to
the Royal Commission on Education and
a  third  committee  had  been  formed  to
behalf of U.B.C. Presentations were made to two retiring members
of the facutly at the meeting. In picture second from left above are

presented with a gift by Mrs. Sherwood Lett, right. Second from

U.B.C. Alumni Chronicle. The individuals above are some of the
members of the executive committee of the Association's board of
investigate the ways in which students
can more effectively make the major
transition to University life.
To inform future graduates of the
activities of the Alumni Association the
director has also spoken ot graduating
classes in engineering and commerce
during the past year Mr. Hyland said.
The facilities of the Association have
also been utilized to assist President
MacKenzie in a tour of the Kootenay
area. (See report page 10).
Mr. Hyland said that major factors in
the future activities of the Association
were the necessity to impress on new
graduates the value of the work done
by the Association, and the encouragement of persons in provincial communities in aiding the University. This work,
he said, could be promoted by granting
associate memberships in the Association.
John Haar, in his report to the meeting, said that in 1959 the Association
intended to reintroduce the annual giving
program which was suspended during the
development fund campaign. The reintro-
duction of this program would be a
"measure of the depth and sincerity, in
the eyes of many, of the Alumni habit
of annual giving," he said.
Mr. Haar said that Alumni must continue the "positive and helpful" role
which was so evident during the past
year in such activities as Homecoming,
committee work and advisory services to
the University.
A number of presentations were also
made during the evening. In presenting
a gift to John Haar, Mr. Hyland paid
tribute to his work and said the Association was fortunate in having obtained his
services. A presentation was also made
to Col. Harry T. Logan, retiring editor
of the U.B.C. Alumni Chronicle. He
received a bound volume of all the
issues of the Chronicle which he edited
between 1953 and 1958. Mr. Hyland
said that Col. Logan had made immense
improvements in the Chronicle during
his editorship and the Association was
indebted to him for the contribution
which he had made.
Mr. Hyland then called on Mrs. Sherwood Lett, B.A. '17, M.A. '26, to make
a presentation to Dean Dorothy Mawdsley, B.A. (McGill) '20, M.A. '27, Ph.D.
(Chicago), who will retire this year as
dean of women. Mrs. L. H. Leeson,
B.A. '23, a member of the board of
management, also presented Miss Marjorie Leeming, B.A. '26, retiring assistant
dean of women, with a gift.
When Mr. Collins was officially
installed as president he paid tribute to
the work of Mr. Hyland during the past
year and made a presentation to him.
Mr. Collins then introduced Col.
Harry Logan who spoke on the theme
of the meeting, "Alumni we have known."
Col. Logan described the beginnings of
the Alumni Association and pointed out
that including this year's graduates the
University now had 28,487 alumni. Well
over 25,000 of these were still alive,
said Col. Logan, and he added that it
was remarkable that the whereabouts of
only 1100 were unknown. The "lofty"
objectives of the Association, he said,
arose from the University motto, "Tuum
Est," which was given to the University
by its first president, Dr. F. F. Wesbrook.
He pointed out that to Dr. Wesbrook
the motto meant that the University
belonged to the entire province despite
the fact that Alumni, as students, often
interpreted it as meaning "It's up to you."
Col. Logan said that probably the greatest thing that had happened to the
Alumni Association was the recent development fund to which 7,393 alumni
contributed a total of $661,425. He also
mentioned the increased activities by
committees and the development of the
alumni scholarship program as evidence
of voluntary work which is done for its
own sake.
The final address of the evening was
given by Vancouver Sun columnist
Barry Mather whose witticisms about
U.B.C. alumni in the newspaper world
brought the evening to a close.
Some of his remarks follow:
Pierre Berton, B.A. '41: "Pierre is the
only  man  I know  who  is still  making
money out of the gold rush."
Bruce Hutchison, LL.D.: "All Canadian
history is now divided into two parts—
before and after Hutchison. If he writes
one more book on Canada he will get
to keep the Cambrian shield."
Eric Nicol, B.A. '41, M.A. '48, and
David Brock, B.A. '30: "To understand
Brock you have to read his whole
column. However, in the case of Nicol,
you only need to read the first paragraph.
You might say that Nicol is instant
Hymie Koshevoy, Class of Arts '32:
"He is the managing editor who went
from the Sun to the Province to the
Sun to the Province to the Sun. He has
resigned to many times he is known as
'Hopalong' Koshevoy."
Aubrey Roberts, Class of Arts '23:
"One of the first men to recognize my
worth. When he joined the News Herald
he made me stop being telegraph editor
and started me writing a column."

President in Kootenays
On the first of what it is hoped will
become an annual regional tour, President MacKenzie visited seven communities of the Kootenay valley during the
week of April 19 to 25. Accompanied
by the acting alumni director, the President expressed the appreciation of the
University for the dollars donated, effort
expended and loyalty displayed by
alumni, community organizations, and
friends in support of the U.B.C. Development Fund  drive.
Through the initiative and under the
guidance of Kootenay alumni and supporters of the University, four to five
meetings per day were held in Invermere, Kimberley. Cranbrook, Nelson,
Creston. Trail  and  Rossland.
At formal gatherings. Dr. MacKenzie's
report to the citizens was followed by
lively question periods which revealed
areas of local interest in. and concern
for, education. The President discussed
frankly the question of higher education
and junior colleges, the extra costs of
attendance at U.B.C. for out-of-town
students, problems surrounding the addition of facilities at U.B.C. more student
housing, and the rate of failure in the
freshman year.
In reply to the oft-asked questions
about additional educational institutions
in the province, the President recommended the establishment of a commission or committee to study all the ramifications of the future development of
higher education. A clear idea of the
types of institution needed (whether vocational or liberal arts, integrated or
terminal), location, sources of finance,
availability of adequate and qualified
staff and necessary facilities, should be
sought to permit an economic and systematic   development.
Frequent expressions about added
costs of travel and board for students
from the interior at U.B.C. prompted
the suggestion that a form of "equalization assistance" could, and should, be
established under provincial and federal
government aid.
From packed high school auditoriums
in Creston and Trail and from special
student groups in Cranbrook and Rossland came a warm response and diverse
questions from future students. A special
visit to Notre Dame College in Nelson
was followed by a meeting of local citizens seeking establishment of a junior
college in the community. At formal and
informal gatherings parents, interested
citizens and organizations showed the
genuine interest in the Kootenays in all
aspects of education, and the recognition
of its significance in the future of our
president of the Southern California
branch  of the Alumni Association.
On Friday, April 24, the Seattle
Branch of the Alumni Association of
the University of British Columbia held
a cocktail party at the Lake Washington waterfront home of Stanley T.
Arkley, B.A.'25, and Mrs. Arkley, to
honour Dr. MacKenzie, President of
U.B.C, and John Haar, B.A.'50, the
acting Alumni Association director.
The Friends of the University of
University of British Columbia presented
to Dr. MacKenzie a further cheque for
$1,878, being additional contributions
from Friends all over the United States.
This brings to $16,245 the actual cash
contributions to the Development Fund
from the Friends.
Among those listening to the President's informal talk and meeting him
were: William A. Rosene, B.A.'49, and
Mrs. Rosene, Richard A. Montgomery,
B.A.'40, and Mrs. Montgomery, Robert
J. Boroughs, B.A.'39, M.A.'43. and Mrs.
Boroughs (Catherine Alice Bride Carr.
B.A.'39), John M. Gunn, B.A.Sc'40, and

The people of the Okanagan are keenly
interested in the University of British
Columbia and wish it success in the
development program.
This is the impression gained by
Aubrey F. Roberts, assistant to the President and director of the Development
Fund, and Roy Jessiman. partner of
Thompson, Berwick and Pratt. University
architects, who toured the Okanagan in
May speaking to alumni branches, service
clubs and high school assemblies. They
found everywhere a lively interest in
and a reservoir of good will for U.B.C.
Mr. Jessiman outlined the University's
development program, illustrating his
address with slides showing charts of
the development plan and colour photos
of new buildings on the campus. The
new student residences captured the attention of all audiences as did the new
Buchanan building.
In Penticton Mr. Roberts and Mr.
Jessiman met with alumni under the
leadership of Dr. Hugh Barr and Harley
Hatfield, B.A.'28, addressed the Kiwanis
Club luncheon and were interviewed by
Bjorn Bjornson over radio station
CKOK. In Summerland they addressed
a high school assembly arranged by
Principal A. K. MacLeod, B.A.'34, and
the Rotary Club dinner meeting, arranged by Ewart Wooliams. B.A.'25.
In Kelowna there was a radio interview with Stan Lettner at radio station
CKOV and an address to a combined
dinner meeting of the Toastmasters' Club
and Kelowna alumni arranged by Arthur
P.  Dawe, B.A.'38.
At Kelowna also Mr. Roberts and Mr.
Jessiman were invited to appear at a city
council meeting where they were greeted
by Mayor R. F. Parkinson and spoke
briefly in appreciation of Kelowna's interest and support.
In Vernon there was a luncheon meeting of alumni headed by Patrick Mackie,
B.A.'51 and Hilda Cryderman. B.A.'33
and a radio interview with Jack Pollard
of station CJIB. In Kamloops there was
an informal lunch with a small group
of alumni. Roland Aubrey. B.Arch.'51
and Jim Asselstine, B.Com.'46, alumni
leaders in the Development Fund campaign, were both on jury duty so it was
not possible to arrange a general meeting.
During the tour the question of junior
colleges was raised in every centre and
it is obvious that all have some claims for
consideration if and when the Department of Education decides to move in
that direction.
Several Okanagan friends expressed the
hope that the University can increase
its offerings to their communities in the
way of lectures, theatres, music and capsule college undertakings.

Vancouver festival publicity
director Ernest Perrault
previews the 1959 show
Last year in a summer made historic
both by the celebration of British
Columbia's hundredth birthday and a sky
that remained blue and cloudless for a
record-breaking period of time—last year
in July a festival of the arts was launched
in the city of Vancouver.
The idea of an arts festival had been
in the minds of a hard core of enthusiasts since 1948 when the Community
Arts Council of Vancouver set up a
committee to study the possibilities and
submit recommendations; but the actual
launching of the festival did not occur
until Nicholas Goldschmidt, then musical director of the opera school at the
Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto,
submitted an elaborate brief outlining
plans for a major arts festival.
Nicholas Goldschmidt was not writing
at an uninformed distance when he put
his thoughts on paper. He had been,
since 1948, a regular visitor to Vancouver
in his capacity initially as a teacher and
lecturer in lieder and choral singing at
the   University   summer   school   of   the
publicity director for the Vancouver
International Festival. He is a former
U.B.C. information officer.
arts. At the time his brief was prepared
he had become director of music for the
rapidly-growing summer school and was
able to state, from his own experience,
that Vancouver audiences would support
opera, symphony and drama of internationally important calibre. In the
estimation of Nicholas Goldschmidt the
time was ripe. His plan was to convert
Vancouver into a festival city on a scale
comparing with such European centres
as  Salzburg—or  Scotland's  Edinburgh.
Once more the Community Arts
Council took up the cause, armed this
time with Goldschmidt's blueprint. The
Council's president at the time was Mrs.
W. G. H. Roaf. She was strongly supported by Mrs. O. H. Korner and Mrs.
Reginald Arkell (now Mrs. Arthur Wait)
and these three were largely instrumental
in persuading Mr. William Mainwaring,
now president of the Peace River
Development Corporation, to become
the president of the Vancouver Festival
The Society lost little time in appointing Nicholas Goldschmidt artistic and
managing director . . . and that unfortunately is all the time we can devote to
the history of North America's first truly
international  festival.
Stated in the briefest terms, the first
Festival attracted a total audience of
100,000 people to a four week program
involving the services of four hundred
actors, musicians, dancers, concert artists,
and choristers.
Claude Gingras writing in Montreal's
"La Presse" gave an early ruling in the
Festival announcement for  1959.
"I do not know what the Montreal
Festival Society is going to announce for
its twenty-fourth season," he wrote, "but
the Vancouver Festival is probably the
first in the whole world to announce its
program so soon. It has evidently had
first choice, and what a choice! In
reading the list of invited artists everyone will agree that the Vancouver Festival will be one of the most important
artistic events of the entire world in
1959." Generous words from a city with
an established festival of its own.
Mr. Gingras was correct in assuming
that plans for the 1959 Festival started
early. Many of the details had been
established before the termination of the
1958 Festival and in order to project
plans even further into the future
Nicholas Goldschmidt embarked on a
three month tour of the middle and far

that he had established important contacts
in India, Japan, Hong Kong, and some
countries in Europe.
Now the program of the 1959 Festival
began to unfold. Among the first artists
to be announced was Herbert von
Karajan, generally referred to as "the
concert director of Europe." Probably
the greatest of the world's young conductors, he "commutes" from La Scala
to the Vienna State Opera House in his
own small plane or sports car.
Forty lovely girls trained in the art
of Kabuki dancing will come from
Takarazuka, Japan. These dancers will
be joined by the Ballet Espanol Ximenez-
Vargas from Spain, and dance will also
play a major part in the Festival production of Gluck's melodic opera "Orpheus
and Eurydice." There will be thirty
dancers in the corps de ballet which
explains in part why the noted American
choreographer, Hanya Holm, was asked
to direct the opera. The role of Orpheus
will be sung by Sweden's comely brunette
Kerstin Meyer, and a striking blonde
soprano from Tennessee, Mary Costa,
will sing "Eurydice."
The Festival play is no less impressive in its arrangements. John Reich, of
Chicago's  Goodman  Memorial  Theatre,
will direct Frederick Schiller's "Mary
Stuart" starring Viveca Lindfors in the
title role and Eva Le Gallienne as
Elizabeth I.
Lloyd Bochner and Bruno Gerussi,
both veterans of the Stratford Shakespearean theatre, will play the male

will appear in recitals and solo performances including the noted German
soprano, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Swiss
tenor Ernst Haefliger, Vancouver born

Jean Hagen; pianists Marie-Aimee War-
rot, Rudolf Firkusny, Marie Friedlander;
cellists Zara Nelsova and Ernst Fried-
lander; the Hungarian Quartet; the
Cassenti Players, directed by George
Zukerman; the C.B.C. Chamber orchestra, and many others. The Festival will
boast no less than seven symphony conductors including the greatest living
maestro of this half century—Bruno
Walter, who will conduct a pair of all-
Mozart concerts with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf as soloist.
In a lighter vein the internationally
acclaimed    concert    comedienne,    Anna
Russell, will appear for a full week
presenting sketches and vignettes especially prepared for the occasion.
There will be a two week Film Festival
offering the best films of at least 25
countries. An exhibition entitled "The
Arts in French Canada" assembled by
M. Gerard Morisset of the Quebec
Museum will occupy most of the rooms
in the Vancouver Art Gallery for the
run of the Festival.
Last year many patrons complained
bitterly about the inadequate theatre
accommodation. This year the Festival
will open in the new Vancouver civic
auditorium, a 2800-seat theatre completely equipped and lavishly designed
for the comfort and convenience of both
audience and performers.
All in all the 1959 Festival should
over-shadow the successful Festival of
1958 in every way. But, no one will
ever forget 1958. Out of uncertainty,
sacrifice and a large vision emerged an
important new cultural achievement in
Canada. The Festival was born in 1958
and has grown to magnificent proportions in 1959. The people of Vancouver
and British Columbia can be proud to
claim that they have seen the birth of
a festival city in North America.
To Shreve McCannon, the Canadian student at Harvard in
William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom!, the South is a complete
enigma: "What is it?" he asks his roommate, Quentin Compson,
whose tale in Absalom, Absalom! is a parable of the corruption
and decay of the South, "something you live and breathe in
like air? a kind of vacuum filled with wraithlike and indomitable anger and pride and glory at and in happenings that
occurred and ceased fifty years ago?" Quentin's answer —
"You can't understand it. You would have to be born there."
—is an over-simplification, but precisely because Shreve's
puzzlement is based on removal and remoteness— ". . . it's
something," Shreve says, "my people haven't got." Quentin's
answer is not so naive as it seems. Shreve, and Canadians in
general, do not live "among defeated grandfathers and freed
slaves . . . always reminding (them) to never forget."
Living as removed from the racial issues that animate the
current Southern scene as the average Alabaman from the
vagaries of Social Credit politics, Canadians, stimulated unfortunately by a sensational and often irresponsible press, are
prone to criticize a situation with which most of them have
only second-hand familiarity. Canadian nationalism and a
natural suspicion of the United States, engendered by years
of conflicting economic interest, together with a patriotic and
sometimes uncritical belief in the superiority of all Canadian
institutions, produce an intellectual climate immediately receptive to the distorted techniques of propaganda.
Canadians Condemn Prejudice
Canadians condemn — and rightly so — the signs of racial
prejudice in the South; unfortunately, their condemnation, nurtured all too often on the springs of unthinking emotionalism
and compounded frequently of half-digested half-truths, lacks
the force of reasoned and sincere conviction. Any condemnation other than that growing out of an understanding and
intelligent grasp of the issues at hand capitalizes on the very
prejudice for which the South is stigmatized. One would hardly
presume to criticize a play after seeing only the middle act;
by the same logic one cannot presume to appraise the present
situation in the South without reclaiming from the emotional
smog that now surrounds it the antecedents which give rise

to  the present crisis,  and  without  anticipating  from  existing
evidence what its conclusions are likely to be.
It is difficult for an outsider to comprehend a belief in
white supremacy that lacks ethnic, scientific, and historical
support. It is even more difficult for him to view with detachment the periodic eruptions of hatred and violence that inevitably occur when two distinct ideologies clash: in this
case the desire of the Negro for the freedom and rights
guaranteed him as a citizen of the United States, and the
irrational, but determined, conviction of the Southerner that the
preservation of the very democratic principles upon which
the Negro bases his claim is jeopardized by any threat to white
supremacy. The traditional arguments which the South has
always advanced for white Supremacy now seem hopelessly
effete, even stupid, for the role of the Negro laborer in an
agrarian society has diminished proportionately as the entire
nation — the South with it — has given way to industrial
Thus the necessity of economic exploitation which underlay
slavery and plagued the Negro well into the twentieth century
has been removed, but the social attitudes corollary to it have
not. The archetype remains, instilled as it were by a kind of
emotional osmosis in generations that have never known the
older order, and the responsibility for the decline of a leisurely
and prosperous paternalistic way of life is laid at the door
of the most readily available scapegoat — the Negro. The
Civil War, and the spiritual and physical devastation that
attended it, has a palpable presence in the Southern psyche,
and the Southerner has never forgotten the catalytic role
which the Negro played in fomenting that revolution. So too,
the bitter struggles of reconstruction and the problems posed
by the Negro in that era when, together with Northern
carpetbaggers, he terrorized the South, linger still in the collective unconscious of Southerners removed by four generations
from the catastrophe.
Today, the legal decision of a half century ago, which then
pacified the South with a constitutional interpretation satisfied
with "separate but equal" rights, has been revoked, and the
Southerner foresees the total breakdown of a way of life
which, itself a compromise, promised at least a permanence
and the preservation of white supremacy.
Southerners would, in all likelihood, be far more willing
to allow the Negro his full civil rights were it not for the
fact that the recent (1954) Supreme Court decision cuts across
the traditional emphasis on States' Rights, as did the 14th and
15th amendments, the latter of which Virginia, Texas,
Mississippi, and Georgia were forced to ratify in 1869 as a
condition for reentry into the Union. The concept of States'
Rights is vital to the United States as a whole, not to the
South alone, although seldom have issues so essentially affect-

about the matter — by 1783 States' Rights was a tradition

that this political principle was made a part of the Bill of
And what of civil rights, the rights of the individual? Were
there no safeguards against infringement here? Certainly the
Constitution contained provision for the guarantee and the
protection of these rights to citizens, but it must be remembered
that the framers of the Constitution accepted slavery as a
social institution — slaves were not citizens — and they could
not foresee the tremendous upheavals which would result from
the conflict of these two ideals. The apparent, and in one
sense very real, contradition between these two ideals was
one of the principal causes of the Civil War.
Deep-Seated Resentment
The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the Constitution,
which respectively freed the slaves, insured civil rights, and
expressly guaranteed civil rights, particularly the franchise, to
the Negro caused deep-seated resentment in the South, which
lost not only a moral victory but as well an economic fight
for survival. Today, although these issues are, economically
at least, academic, the inheritors of that traditional resentment
bear vociferous witness to the ubiquitous presence of their
"defeated grandfathers"; they have never forgotten, though
probably they could not remember.
With the 1954 Supreme Court ruling that "separate but
equal" facilities are not within the spirit of the Constitution,
it is inevitable that the old order must change; that indeed
it is now changing and will continue to do so, that the tenets
of the Constitution are flexible enough to allow for alteration
and reinterpretations within the spirit rather than the letter
of its original intent is ample evidence of the essentially
dynamic qualities of democratic, constitutional government.
The framers of the Constitution "builded," to borrow a
phrase from Emerson, "better than they knew" by anticipating
the possibility of radical changes in the United States and by
making provisions for the right of amendment in the original
law of the land.
Today, in the United States, the legislation, though not the
legal precedents in every case, for the complete integration
of all minority groups — not just the Negroes — does exist,
and so far this legislation has been intelligently implemented
in the federal courts. Certainly the realization of complete
civil equality for all races will take time, for hatred, prejudice,
and ignorance cannot be legislated out of existence. There
are inherent dangers in administering any social and political
innovations in which the issues are not only vital and controversial, but explosive. Law and order have as much to fear
from over-zealous liberals as from fanatic radicals. Thus, much
of the pressure presently being applied by the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People for immediate and complete integration, is grossly unrealistic and may
reap a harvest far different from what such liberals as Thurgood
Marshall, the chief legal advisor of the National Association
for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP), is seeking.
Offering a reasonable apology for the South would be a
difficult task indeed, even for a confirmed Southerner, but
the absence of a palpable explanation does not alter in any
way the realities of the problem. Unfortunately, there are
no facile solutions; the change, which must be permanent and
real, not short-lived and antipathetic acquiescence, will come
about only through a slow, well-planned educative process,
effecting gradually the disintegration of ingrained habits, beliefs, and ideas. The law is assuredly on the side of the
integrationists, but if in their zeal they succeed not in securing
freedom and equality, but in fomenting a spirit of lawlessness
and revolt, surely they will be in much the same dilemma as
the dead man who had the right of way.
i i
The whole problem of racial integration in the United
States has been centred, during the past two years, on the
integration of the Negro into the white school systems of the
South. Little Rock, Arkansas, despite brief outbreaks elsewhere,
remains throughout the world a permanent and unhappy
symbol of fanatic ignorance and arrogance fighting aggressively
to preserve a segregated way of life. That the actual racial
revolution should have occurred in Little Rock is as paradoxical as the fact that the Marxist revolution began in Russia.
During the period of the depression and throughout the
early years of the war, Little Rock was a quiet, unassuming,
langorous, rather lazy, probably rather typical, border Southern
town, not unlike Victoria in many ways. It clung tenaciously
to the traditions of the past and viewed with suspicion the
encroachment of industry in the state of which it is the capital.
Its people and their habits were, in the main, provincial and
conservative. Like the citizens of most towns and cities all
over North America during the depression era, the people of
Little Rock were primarily concerned with eking a living out
U. B. C.   ALUMNI   CHRONICLE of a collapsed economy that offered them neither work nor
There is in common adversity a kind of mutual bond that
transcends the confines of religious, political, and racial
differences, and perhaps first the depression and then the war
helped to alleviate and push into the background many of the
tensions which might otherwise have found tangible expression. There were few, if any, racial disturbances in the Little
Rock of the depression and early war years, though there
was certainly prejudice and discrimination, and in general
Negroes were considered inferior.
The way of life was manifestly segregated: the Negro
ghetto stretched along Ninth Street west from Broadway to
High and south from about Sixth to Twentieth stteets; streetcars and buses had "Seat to the Rear" signs; places of entertainment, schools, and professional services were "separate"
and seldom "equal." City-wide there was a kind of peaceful
coexistence; in the homes with domestic servants there was
a benevolence, stemming from dependence, that created its
own kind of tolerance. If there were overt racial disturbances,
they were surely isolated.
Now, twenty years later, the eyes of the entire world are
focused on this quiet, unassuming, languorous, rather lazy,
probably rather typical border Southern town and on the
issues it has come to represent. Now, stirred up by political
opportunists who have subverted law and order and turned
them to their own political advantage, Little Rock has been
for two years embroiled in a racial and political crisis that
reaches far beyond the borders of its parent state, indeed far
beyond the borders of its parent country, breeding dissension
and unrest in the minds and hearts of peoples everywhere.
Betrayed and maligned by the man they elected to lead them,
the peoples of Arkansas have committed themselves to a course
of action untenable by any standard of human conduct.
Faubus Capitalized on Fear
The "ignorant plowboy"—Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong's apt
epithet for Arkansas' Faubus — could have smoothed the
way for the peaceful integration of Little Rock's schools,
which would probably have occurred in 1965; instead he
capitalized on inherent fear and hatred, and the people of the
state conspired to help him succeed. The "City of Roses" now
by any other name would smell far sweeter.
Little Rock is, of course, only symptomatic of the disturbances all over the South following in the wake of the 1954
Supreme Court decision. But Little Rock is a beginning and
not an end; symbolizing only the aggressive reaction of diehard segregationists, it obscures the more hopeful signs apparent everywhere thoughout the South. To a large extent, the
distortion of the true situation stems from an irresponsible
press, concerned more with selling papers than printing the
All over the border states and in many cities of the deep
South, gradual integration has begun: Louisville, Kentucky,
has had integrated schools for at least two years; Clinton,
Tennessee, the "hot spot of racial clashes" only two years
ago, has successfully integrated its schools; many of the smaller
communities of Arkansas have pointed the way to the solution
of Little Rock's dilemma; even the mighty Virginia (and as
Virginia goes so eventually goes the entire South) has finally
capitulated under federal pressures. These facts lack sensational
headline appeal, however, and their news value is completely
overshadowed by the faintest hints of riot and disorder.
Everyone, everywhere, remembers that Faubus used his
National Guard as a kind of storm troop to flout the agencies
of law and order, but how many people remember that only
the year before, Frank Clement, the Governor of Tennessee,
a man dedicated, by his own admission, to the principle of
segregation, called out the National Guard — his personal
troops — not to take the law into his own hands and prevent
the peaceful integration of Clinton, Tennessee's schools, but
to defend the law of the land when it was threatened by
imported alarmists and rabble-rousers such as John Kasper?
In the press, and consequently in the public mind, the emphasis is not on Frank Clement's action, nor on successful
integration anywhere.
In a real sense, what happened at Little Rock may prove
salutary to the larger issue of racial tolerance and to the
ultimate cause of integration. Since 1957, vast inroads have
been made into the jungle of ignorance and prejudice that was
the older South.
Pressures Brought to Bear
Recently, new pressures have been brought to bear upon
recalcitrant states; a new civil rights bill has been introduced in
the American Congress with particular reference to the Negro
franchise; the leaders of many Southern states recoiled in
horror at the injustice of Georgia's shabby and unscrupulous
election practices and denounced them publicly; increased
bombings of public properties, especially of integrated schools
by fanatics, have forced many states to clean up their law
enforcement agencies; and the Supreme Court is maintaining
a firm stand in the face of litigation designed to delay the
forces of integration.
The road to freedom is not yet won. Little Rock will
certainly not be the last stronghold of ignorance and violence
in the fight for integration. Federal troops have "occupied"
the capital city of a sovereign state, and the ramifications
of that precedent may well reach beyond the integration issue
far into the future. But integration will come. As surely as
Hamlet says of death:
If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it
will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come.
The readiness is all, and the readiness has been prepared.
Legislated freedom, however, will not prove a panacea, and
those most avidly campaigning for racial freedom must realize
that freedom for all can exist only in the most idealistic
sense. Tolerance is almost never all encompassing, and when
the ruins of the present segregated social structure have become the foundation of a new era, the Negro will still have
to win the only kind of tolerance worth having: the respect
for his individual worth.
Shreve McCannon, and his counterparts throughout the
world, must review their opinions and try to see the Southern
crisis in a true and balance perspective. They must realize
that ignorance, greed, and fear are not regionally restricted
to the Southern section of the United States. Prejudice, in
all its manifestations, exists everywhere, once the minority
becomes numerically significant enough to make itself felt.
The recent outbreaks in England, the severe application of
apartheid principles in South Africa, the French suppression
of the Algerians, the anti-semitism and other forms of racial
discrimination that exists in Canada: all bear testimony to the
obvious fact that weeds can grow in the most carefully cultivated gardens.
The Negroes of the United States will unquestionably endure.
Their most immediate role, and their strength, lies in the
tactics which were so admirably applied in the bus boycott
in Montgomery, Alabama. Federal law is certainly with them,
and the federal government has at last committed itself to a
course of actively defending the rights of its citizens who
become the victims of open and violent prejudice.
Emancipation Proclamation
Up from slavery, through emancipation, to the first faint
flickerings of an inevitable equality and complete integration
is no mean record for a people in less than a hundred years,
especially when each concession has been at the expense of
long-established tradition, deep-rooted ideals, and vested interests which depend on the continuance of the status quo.
The die was cast as early as 1863 when Abraham Lincoln
signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Eventually the terms
of that document will be fulfilled:
I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves
. . . are, and henceforward shall be, free; and that
the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities, will recognize
and maintain the freedom of said persons . . .
And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of
justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military
necessity, I invoke the considerate judgement of
mankind and the gracious favor of Almighty God.
Its Potential Contribution
to Development of more Salmon and more Power
in British Columbia
Perhaps the most frustrating conflict
confronting the development of water
resources in British Columbia is the competition of fish and power for the use
of the waters of some of our major
river systems. The salmon resources of
the province have for many years provided the basis for one of our most
important industries, besides supplying
a source of food for native populations
and a source of recreation for an increasing number of sportsmen.
Many of the rivers of British Columbia,
particularly in the Fraser River system,
can be developed for purposes in addition to fish maintenance. Such purposes
include hydropower generation, irrigation, navigation, and domestic and industrial water supply. The popular misconception has been that development
of these other purposes will wipe out
the salmon runs. The purpose of this
article is to show that it is possible to
have both fish and power in the same
river basin and to point out the contribution which artificial propagation can
make to this end.
In the past one hundred years or so
British Columbia has developed from an
outpost of western civilization to a province which stands on the threshold of
becoming one of the important industrial complexes of the world. In this
evolution the development of our salmon
resources and our hydropower resources
have both played a critical role.
Until recently they did not come into
conflict. This was because power needs
VAL GWYTHER, B.A.Sc'24, P.Eng., a
consulting engineer in Vancouver, is a
member of Fraser River Multiple Use
were small and could be readily satisfied
through the development of small, non-
salmon streams. Our power needs are
now expanding so rapidly, however, that
our economic non-salmon streams will
soon be insufficient to provide for our
future requirements. Eventually we may
have to use salmon streams too.
The major question facing public
policy makers is "Can we have power
development on salmon streams and
still be able to maintain our fisheries?"
An objective look at the facts suggests
that not only is the development of the
two resources compatible but also that
the development of hydropower can
make a major contribution to the optimum development of the salmon resources. In this connection, the development of artificial propagation has a vital
role to play.
Artificial propagation of salmon can
assist the fishing industry in two principal
directions: (a) by supplementing natural
spawning, and, (b) by compensating for
losses in fish runs resulting from construction of dams.
Observation of experience in British
Columbia, the Pacific northwest United
States, and elsewhere, shows that natural
spawning is inadequate to ensure a
continuous and stable fishery. Not only
do runs vary tremendously from year to
year but in some cases runs have declined
to levels which spell extinction. In many
instances the decline cannot be attributed
to man-made devices, least of all power
dams. In fact, often it is only through
these devices that runs have been maintained and developed. Through control
of water flow, temperature and predators
many runs have been increased far above
previous levels. Often natural spawing,
even with these controls, is inadequate
to ensure stable runs. By the introduction    af    artificial    spawning    methods,
continuous fishing  has  been made  possible.
The implicit assumption in most fish
maintenance programs is that fish ladders
are the best, if not the only, means of
ensuring salmon survival in the face of
dam construction. Even the most highly
developed fish ladders, however, are
unable to ensure a 100 per cent survival.
In the Pacific northwest United States
the advantages of a program of artificial
propagation as a supplement to the fish
ladder have been recognized. Artificial
propagation is now an integral part of
the fishery development schemes south
of the border.
There is no suggestion that artificial
propagation could ever replace natural
methods. Despite its much superior
efficiency, artificial spawning costs
money. But if we want to ensure a
stable fishery we must invest wisely in
methods of regenerating our resources.
Artificial propagation offers great opportunities for developing the salmon fishery
to levels far beyond those possible in
the    absence    of    man-made    controls.
Methods used by both nature and man
in the propagation of salmon are natural
spawning and artificial spawning respectively. Artificial propagation takes place
in specially constructed channels with
some control and in hatcheries with the
associated advantages of fish farming in
controlled water areas.
There is mortality of fish in all types
of propagation, varying in degree according to the help we are able to apply. In
addition, there are increased benefits in
production in artificial channels and
hatchery propagation.
In natural spawning losses of fish are
extensive due to inadequate fertilization
of eggs, exposure of eggs to atmosphere
and unsanitary conditions. There are
losses due both to overcrowding of adults
in spawning areas and regulation during

are unsatisfactory. There are also extensive losses due to predatory fish and other
forms of life. In natural propagation we
can expect an adult return of about 1.65

Of this return, one must be allowed for

to control of quantity of water and
temperature regulation. Overcrowding
and some other factors can be eliminated
but these factors depend on the degree
of control which is applied to the artificial channel. Average quoted figures
indicate that the production of salmon
in these artificial channels is about six
times that of natural spawning. We then
have a return of 9.8 fish for every
spawning fish, 8.8 of which may be used
for production and one allowed to

survival in any one year of any race,
production can be obtained and controlled
to maximum capacity of hatchery incubation or rearing ponds every year.
In summing up the propagation of
salmon by various types of spawning
and rearing in fresh and salt water, we
must come to the conclusion that the
principal difference in all these types of
propagation is the varying degree of
control nature and man has been able
to apply. In each and every increment
of control that is applied, we will receive
additional benefits in survival and therefore increased production. Artificial
propagation then appears to have important  advantages  over  natural  spawning.
What then has been done in artificial
propagation and what is being done to
supplement natural spawning with the
encroachment of civilization?
The problem of the competition of
fish and power is not a new one nor is
it common to British Columbia only.
The problem has arisen in the Pacific
northwest   United   States,   Scotland   and
elsewhere. Experience in these areas in
solving it suggest avenues which might
be fruitfully pursued in this province.
Tracing the developments in the fish
management field since the 1930s, we
can discern the evolution of a number
of successful means for developing the
fisheries of the Pacific northwest United
States. These are: (a) efficient fish passage facilities, (b) hatcheries, (c) relocation of runs, (d) fish farming, and (e)
fishing regulations.
Most of these means were incorporated
in the Lower Columbia River Fishery
Program which was initiated in 1949,
and in much of the subsequent fishery
resource development programs since
that date. The United States agencies
have cooperated with Canadian agencies
in research but acceptance of some of
these means in Canada has been only
lukewarm. This is perhaps surprising in
view of the great successes achieved in
the United States, particularly with
respect to artificial propagation and fish
The construction of the Grand Coulee
Dam in 1934 completely blocked off
thousands of miles of spawning grounds
above this structure with its relative
destruction in the fish  resource.  Means
were taken to restore this deficiency by
artificial propagation. The largest hatchery in the world which is at Leavenworth
was built in 1940. It has never been
used above 50 per cent capacity and, as
of now, is only producing at about 1/3
capacity. The aim was to propagate and
build up the runs of chinook, blueback
and steelhead to compensate for the loss
of over a thousand miles of spawning
During the first year of operation
about 3,000,000 baby chinook were
hatched at this site and were released
to the adjacent creek, but very few returned four years later to this point of
release. In contrast, chinook reared at
Leavenworth and released in Mason
Creek and the Entiat, Methow and
Wenatchee rivers yielded large returns
of spawners.
Although the chinook program was a
partial failure, the fish culturists were
extremely successful with bluebacks
(sockeye). These could be spawned at
the racks in the river, the eggs hatched
out, and the tiny fingerlings planted in
Wenatchee and Osoyoos Lakes. From
1941 to 1954 the blueback run at Rock
Island Dam, which was built in 1932,
multiplied over 90 times, from a low of
950 fish to a high of 91,000. The blue-
back escapement count at Bonneville in
1955   was an  all-time high of  135,000.
The necessity of supplementing natural
spawning was well-known before the turn
of the present century. James Crawford
in the 1894 report of the Washington
State Fish Commission writes: "That the
salmon industry is in great danger, by
reason of the decrease in the supply of
salmon, cannot be successfully denied,
and unless some steps are immediately
taken to repair by artificial propagation,
the ravages annually made by different
fishing appliances on our salmon supply,
this industry that brings nearly two
million dollars annually to the citizens
of Washington and Oregon, will have
passed   into  history."
The industry has not passed into
history. In an overall survey of the
salmon problem, it was generally agreed
that artificial propagation must play an
increasing role in supplementing natural
production. Hence, about 60 per cent
of the Lower Columbia River Fishery
Program funds have been earmarked for
building new or modernizing old hatcheries. They have, over the last six years,
released to the river about 60,000,000
young sturdy fish annually. In August
or September of the third year after
release, thousands of fish from each
annual crop unerringly return to the
hatchery of rearing and release to be
stripped of their eggs and milt and start
another generation.
Fish farming consists of the rearing
of salmon under controlled conditions
designed to ensure maximum reproduction of fish. This means of propagation
has very recently been undertaken
intensively in the state of Washington.
It has been practised for many centuries
in other areas of the world where intensive concentrations of population have
necessitated the production of large scale
food supplies.
The efforts in Washington state in
raising salmon in farms have proven to
be extremely successful. Although it is
admittedly not a complete or final
answer to the problem of diminishing
fish runs, it certainly provides a partial
solution by its ability to raise millions
of salmon at extremely low cost. It
offers an opportunity for selective breeding and hybridization of salmon to overcome the problem of the encroachment
of civilization on natural breeding
We may never see the day when we
can ignore dams and pollution, but we
know now that we can make up for
resulting fish loss, at least partially, by
fish farming. Washington state is working towards a production of 100,000,000
eggs per year and looking forward to
the day when they can take 500,000,000
eggs per year. Japan has, in the last
ten years, increased their yearly plant of
eggs from 175,000,000 to 500,000,000
eggs, and today the commercial catch of
Japan is based on 80 per cent hatchery-
produced fish. Federal hatcheries in
eastern    Canada    produced    20,000,000
Atlantic  salmon fingerlings  in  the year
1956 to 1957.
In Washington state 1,200 acres of
salt and fresh water fish farms have been
put into operation and many others are
planned. Lake Ozette on the Olympic
peninsula is now being brought into large
scale production. The seeding of 75,000,-
000 fish is anticipated in this lake alone
in any one year.
Despite the great demonstrated advantages of fish farming, no extensive program has been developed in this province
in very great abundance. Suggesting the
contribution fish farming can make, Dr.
Henry G. Houghton, director of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Laboratory of Earth's Sciences, said recently:
"To feed the world's increasing population, practical methods are needed for
large scale fish farming. A sudden
advance in this field could mean incalculable advantage for the nation which
scores it."
The encroachment of civilization in
its many aspects has until recently
resulted in serious depletion of the
salmon resources of the Columbia river.
Of these aspects the one which has
received the most attention is the installation of dams and their accompanying
reservoirs. Such installations, however,
cannot be held entirely responsible for
all, or even most, of the losses which
have occurred. Predators, over-fishing,
logging operations and pollution all took
their toll prior to the construction of any
dam on the Columbia river.
Changes in environmental conditions
resulting from dam construction may in
some cases be harmful and other cases
beneficial to fish. Intensive studies of
effects of power dams on fish have
been carried out in the Pacific northwest
United States and have resulted in
principles of management which permit
increased production.
There is little doubt that propagation
of salmon by natural spawning, with its
random and inefficient yearly production,
cannot compete with the inroads of
civilization in British Columbia. This
resource can only be maintained and
increased in quantity with additional tools
that must be provided by man. These
tools are artificial propagation, control
of migration, and development of larger
fish, and disease- and pollution-resistant
fish. These tools are not suggested as
alternatives but rather as supplements to
natural spawning.
The fisheries agencies should make
every effort, and in fact supply leadership, to ensure the fullest possible
resource development of the Fraser and
other river basins in the province. By
adopting a more realistic and dynamic
approach to fish management, we could
have not only more fish, but also the
benefits of low cost power, flood control,
navigation and irrigation. It is only with
total resource development that optimum
production in the salmon species can be
The architects responsible for designing U.B.C.'s buildings
have been challenged constantly by the grandeur of the site
chosen for the University. It has been no easy task to match,
in terms of buildings, the imagination and vision which the
founders of U.B.C. exercised in locating the University on
Point Grey.
Some of the grandeur of the site must have rubbed off on
the early architects because the original plan was conceived
in the "grand manner" and this basis for development has
proved itself through time and use.
U.B.C.'s founders chose the firm of Sharp and Thompson
(now Thompson, Berwick and Pratt) as University architects
in 1912 as the result of a national competition. The original
plan shows the main mall running north and south on high

his bachelor of architecture degree in 1951.
ground with the east and west malls parallel to it. Crossing
these malls at fixed intervals are various boulevards and the
result is a series of quadrangles. This could be described as
a "traditional" approach which has been used to great effect
at Oxford and Harvard universities.
This "grand plan" has formed the basis for the development
of the campus. Over the intervening years however our changing
habits of life and the post-war growth of the University have
forced revisions.
The University will probably have 15,000 or more students
enrolled by 1966-67 and it is estimated that parking space for
6800 cars will be required. (At present the enrolment is
almost 10,000 and space for nearly 4000 cars is provided.)
These factors could not be foreseen in 1912 when the original
plan was prepared.
The new development plan accepted in principle by the
University last year calls for the elimination of all vehicular
traffic from 120 acres at the heart of the campus to create a
"walking campus." Parking space for automobiles will be
provided on the outskirts of this central area and  access to
CAREY HALL—Site of new Baptist College. Construction   of   the   building   will   start   in   the   near   future.
Dormitories will house 40 students.
FACULTY CLUB—Funds for the construction of this
$600,000 building were donated by Mr. and Mrs. Leon
Koerner. Opening dale is mid-June.
FINE ARTS CENTRE)—Architects are preparing plans
for a group of buildings to house architecture, music,
anthropological museum, small  theatre and art gallery.

additional stack space.  Cost—$1,500,000.

INTERNATIONAL HOUSE—Opened this year by Mrs.
Eleanor Roosevelt as social centre for foreign students.

JAPANESE GARDEN—New, authentic Japanese garden now being planned by visiting architect. Old garden
has been partly used for residence development.
RESIDENCE DEVELOPMENT—First two units open
soon. Eventually will comprise nine dormitory units and
central dining building. Cost—$2,000,000.
these parking lots will be provided by a perimeter road system.
This solution—straightforward, functional and aesthetic—is the
core of the new development plan.
The object in developing perimeter parking lots and a
surrounding road system is to conserve and develop the heart
of the campus as a teaching area embodying inner green spaces,
quadrangles and court yards as gardens and places of relaxation for both students and staff. This plan gives a modern
cast to a traditional approach.
The beginnings of this plan have already been approved by
the board of governors. They recently approved construction
of the first of the new parking lots, one south of the Wesbrook
building, the other off the west mall, to bring parking accommodation to 4000 cars.
The teaching campus of the future then will be the area
between the east and west malls and from Marine Drive on
the north to Agronomy road on the south. Most of this area
would be made up of the "walking campus" with the main
mall free of vehicular traffic and designated as a pedestrian
The architecture of future buildings is another aspect of the
development plan which should be of interest to graduates.
Shortly after the 1912 development plan was approved construction began on U.B.C.'s first permanent buildings—the
science building (now known as the chemistry building) and
the central unit of the library. They are a variation of the
style known as "collegiate gothic" and are constructed of
reinforced concrete with cut granite facing.
The pattern of living in the early part of this century was
a great deal different from our way of life today but I think
it is agreed that these first buildings retain a handsome appearance and have a feeling of strength and solidity about them.
It was not until the late '40s that additional permanent
buildings could be constructed on the campus. These structures
—the applied science building, the south wing of the library
and the Wesbrook building—use materials which differ from
the early buildings. Many persons have questioned this development and I will attempt to answer their objections by asking
two questions which I hope contain their own answer.
1. Should we, living in the middle of the 20th century, use
New medical sciences center (above) will consist of three separate
buildings. At top right of artist's sketch above is Wesbrook building
showing new wing to south for pharmacy. (Closeup of new
pharmacy wing is shown in artist's sketch below). Three buildings
of medical development are shown grouped around fourth projected unit ot be constructed in future. Building to left will house
anatomy and Cancer Research Institute. Four-storey unit on opposite
side of projected building will house pharmacology, pathology and
materials associated with the past, even if we accept the
romantic virtue of the material?
2. Are we prepared to accept the price which we would now
have to pay for what is considered an antiquated "skin?" (By
"skin" I mean the outer covering of the building). The services
of qualified stone masons are difficult to obtain today and
cut stone facing has become a luxury in terms of building
As a result the buildings of the late '40s and early '50s
appear in a "skin" of concrete rather than cut stone. These
buildings have large areas of exposed concrete and regular and
extensive cleaning and painting are required to maintain a
satisfying appearance.
To offset these difficulties new materials are being used in
the current building program. Two of the materials which I
might mention are the grey glazed brick used on many of the
wall surfaces of the new Buchanan building and the procelain
enamel steel panels which have been used to contrast with the
glazed brick and provide subtleties of colour.
The glazed  brick has  two virtues:    1.  It  is  an impervious
material with a high finish needing little or no maintenance,
and, 2. In terms of colour and modular characteristics it is in
sympathy with the granite facing of the library and the
chemistry building.
Another point which I might interject here is that the
interior structure of the Buchanan building is very similar to
the skeleton of the chemistry building. Buildings of the classroom type have a basic structure and the rhythm of columns
in the Buchanan building has been used because this characteristic appears in other campus buildings.
It should be emphasized that what I have said so far applies
only to structures of the classroom type where a repetitive
series of rooms or laboratories to a height of three, four or
five stories is required. There are three other types of building
which will probably become a part of the campus scene in the
The first of these is the multi-storey "high rise" unit of the
office block type where repetition is still desirable but on a
smaller scale. We do not have a building of this type on the
campus yet but a future administration structure would fit this

/Marine drive residence development. Construction of new wing to
library, shown in artists sketch at right, above, will begin in September. Additions to chemistry building (below, right) and biological sciences building (below)  will open in September.
Yet another type of building is the residence unit. And
here we are confronted with quite different problems. What
should a residence unit look like? Should it appear primarily
domestic and, if the answer is yes, how do you express this
fact in a four-storey building housing a hundred students?
It is obvious that residences should not appear to be designed
for lectures or office accommodation and in the development
now taking shape on Marine drive some new features have
been introduced.
Each room in the new residences, for instance, will have a
separate window. This contrasts with the sheet: glass effect
which is a characteristic of the Buchanan (classroom type)
building. And again, different materials have been used—local
brick in the case of the residences—to create an atmosphere
which will be a contrast to the hours a student will spend in
academic pursuits.
The fourth type of structure is the non-academic unit such
as the War Memorial gymnasium or a future theatre or art
gallery.   (A new fine  arts centre  embodying  a  theatre,  art
gallery, anthropological museum and space for the schools of
architecture and music is now on the architect's drawing boards.
—Ed. Note.) The problem here is to design a structure which
will add dynamics by contrasting with the other building types
and at the same time accurately express the kind of activity
taking place  inside.
To summarize, graduates can look forward to the day when
U.B.C. will be a "walking campus" enclosed by a perimeter
road system and ringed by a series of parking lots which will
free the heart of the university from the visual vulgarity of
vehicles. Increased interest will be engendered through variation of building types and unity achieved through the use of
building  materials,  architectural  proportion  and  landscaping.
My only answer to the criticism of mixing types of buildings
is this: so long as a structure is a competent expression of its
time there is no good reason why buildings embodying different
architectural forms cannot live side by side peacefully. U.B.C.'s
early buildings are, I believe, competent expressions of their
time and I hope that we are creating equally competent
structures today.
The Chancellor
The opening shot in the campaign to
raise the 1960 operating grant for the
University was fired by the chancellor,
Dr. A. E. "Dal" Grauer, when he addressed the Insurance Agents Association
of British Columbia in Victoria during
He described the provincial government's fee-sharing scheme for first and
second class students as "trail-blazing and
forward-looking" but added that "it does
not take the place of the operating grants
necessary for the day-to-day efficient
running of the University."
In 1958 the increased federal grant
and this year the $100 increase in student fees closed the gap, he said. "Next
year, therefore, the University has every
right to expect that the provincial legislature will provide a grant for the University's operating budget which, on top
of the University's income from fees and
other sources, will be adequate for the
invaluable work that the University is
doing for the province as a whole."
The  President
A new body to control spending on
higher education in B.C. was envisaged
by President N. A. M. MacKenzie when
he spoke recently to the Victoria branch
of the Alumni Association.
The new body would control the use
and expenditure of public funds, he said,
and would be "designed to avoid as far
as possible inevitable political 'logrolling' and pressures."
President MacKenzie said he believed
the best plan would be an enlargement
of the present Board of Governors.
Alternatives would be a provincial university and college grants commission as
in Great Britain or a board of higher
The composition of this body would
include representatives of Victoria College and Vancouver Island as well as the
populous areas of the interior, the president added.
"This board or commission should be
non-political though the government
should have, as now, some voice in its
membership, and it should, as far as pos
sible be made up of men and women who
have had university experience and who
understand the proper roles and functions
of a modern university," he president
"This Board," he continued, "would
when funds were given it proceed to
allocate the monies available as wisely
as possible and, I might add that an
appropriate formula should not be too
difficult to work out."
The president said this board should
also decide about proposals for major
additions to the offerings of any related
institutions or branches.
"I have in mind," he said, "the setting
up of new faculties or of expensive
departments, requiring a heavy investment in equipment and overhead. For
instance, it would be absurd and wrong
at the present time to duplicate most, if
not all, of the professional faculties and
schools operating at the University at
Point Grey."
The president began his speech by
stating that he believed we should provide for our young people the best and
the most in terms of educational opportunities that they as individuals are suited
to and can benefit from and that we can
He said it continued to be his hope
that Victoria College would grow and
develop as the need arises and as facilities and financial help warrant.
The president said he hoped Victoria
College would remain and be a part of
U.B.C. but that it should be autonomous
in many respects with its own council
and principal.
"For the time being," the president
said, "I would recommend that Victoria
College should plan as soon as is wise
and possible and I hope within five years
at the most, to offer four years in the
fields of arts and science, thus making
it a fully developed liberal arts college
or institution."
U.N. Training  Center
A regional training centre for recipients
of United Nations fellowships and
scholarships was established at U.B.C.

Heads U.N. Center
government of Canada and the University
of British Columbia. The centre will
supervise the scholars and fellows assigned to it under the U.N.'s technical
assistance  program.
The tripartite agreement was worked
out by Dr. Hugh Keenleyside, formerly
director of the technical assistance program of the United Nations and now the
U.N.'s under-secretary for public administration and head of its executive
operations service, which provides international civil servants to under-developed

scholarships will report to the U.B.C.
centre where they will formulate their
program with the staff of the centre and
appropriate U.B.C. professors before
beginning university or in-service training in business or government in the
four western Canadian provinces or the
western United  States.
Those awarded U.N. fellowships and
scholarships are drawn from government
and industry in developing countries and
require advanced training in established
industrial  and governmental  agencies.
In addition to supervisory and placement work officials of the centre will,
in cooperation with the university, organ-
24 ize special courses, training institutes and
seminars in fields in which a particular
need may exist.
The U.N. will provide a director and
an administrative officer for the centre
and will be responsible for fellowship
travel, stipends and for university and
other fees.
Director of the centre will be Dr.
Albert Lepawsky, of the department of
political science at the University of
California. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago, where he obtained
his bachelor and doctoral degrees, and
has also studied at the London School
of Economics and the University of
Dr. Lepawsky said B.C. was chosen
as the site of the centre because of the
remarkable population and economic
expansion in western Canada and the
U.S. during the past 50 years.
The government and business activities
in the area are of great interest to experts
from abroad who are concerned with
resource  development projects,  regional
planning,    multi-purpose    schemes    and
development corporations, he said.
Other factors in the choice of western
North America as the site for the centre
are the advances made in social welfare
programs and the valuable facilities for
in-service training in public administration, according to Dr. Lepawsky.
Four  New  Projects
U.B.C.'s architects have been asked to
prepare preliminary drawings for a new
fine arts center to incorporate space for
the schools of music and architecture,
as well as an anthropological museum
a small theatre and an art gallery.
The center will probably be made up
of a group of buildings and will be
located at the north end of the main
campus parking lot opposite the new
faculty club.
New Garden
A noted Japanese landscape architect
Dr. W. H. Hickman, principal of Victoria College receives the key to the new
addition to the Ewing building from Judge Joseph B. Clearihue, chairman of the
Victoria College Council. The building was officially opened February 18 by the
Hon. W. A. C Bennett, premier of B.C.
Addition  Opened
The new addition to the Ewing Building at Victoria College was officially
opened on February 18th by the Hon.
W. A. C. Bennett, premier of the province of British Columbia.
Among the distinguished guests present
on this occasion were: the Hon. W. N.
Chant, minister of public works; the Hon.
Leslie R. Peterson, minister of education; Dr. J. F. K. English, deputy minister
of education, and Mr. A. E. Webb,
deputy minister of public works and
chairman of the Victoria College joint
planning committee.
The Most Reverend Harold E. Sexton,
D.D., the Lord Archbishop of British
Columbia, read the prayer of dedication
and Mr. Bennett cut the ribbon and
declared  the  addition officially opened.
The new addition, which consists of
a new floor on the Ewing building, contains two lecture rooms, a seminar room,
three offices, and a new Union room.
The present Union room in the basement
is to be taken over by the Library and
will increase reading room and stack
Following the opening ceremonies a

has arrived at U.B.C. to develop an
authentic Japanese garden on the campus.
He is Kannosuke Mori, lecturer in
landscape architecture at the college of
horticulture at Chiba University, who
was selected by the Japanese government
to plan the new development on Marine
drive adjacent to U.B.C.'s new $2 million
residence development.
The present Japanese garden on the
campus, which contains a memorial to
Dr. Inazo Nitobe, a Christian educator
who died in B.C. during a visit in 1933,
has been partly used for the new residence development.
Three acres have been set aside for
the new garden which will incorporate
the memorial to Dr. Nitobe. Mr. Mori,
who is working under the direction of
Dr. John W. Neill, U.B.C.'s landscaping
supervisor and associate director of the
botanical garden, is now doing sketches
for the garden and work is expected to
start before he returns to Japan in two
Dr. Neill said the Japanese-Canadian
Citizens' Association has suggested that
Japanese-Canadian gardeners in the
Vancouver area should each contribute
one day's work toward construction of
the garden.
He said the Association had formed a
study group to meet with Dr. Mori who
would instruct them in the care and
maintenance  of  the  garden.
Dr. Neill said preliminary planning
was one of the most important stages
in the construction of the garden since

growth of the plants have a symbolic
New Building
Plans for a $500,000 pharmacy building to provide classrooms, laboratories
and office space for the Faculty of
Pharmacy have also been approved by
the Board of Governors. This faculty
is presently housed in the biological
sciences building.
The new building will be situated on
University boulevard, at the south end
of the Wesbrook building, where the
university hospital is located, and will
be connected to it by corridor links on
each floor. It will provide a total of
24,000 square feet.
Working drawings are now being prepared by the university architects,
Thompson, Berwick and Pratt, and
tenders will be called late this summer.
Two new parking lots, each providing
space for 600 cars, have also been approved by the board. One lot will be off
University boulevard, south of the Wesbrook building, and the other will be
in the area west of the West Mall and
the federal government buildings on
Marine  drive.
The new parking lots are the first
step in the long-term plan for perimeter
parking on the campus. Eventually all
parking areas will be on the edge of the
teaching campus and there will be no
vehicular traffic through it. The new
areas will increase the university's parking accommodation to 4000 cars.
'Living   Room  Learning'
The University of British Columbia
has been awarded a special $5,000 grant
from the Fund for Adult Education.
Purpose of the grant is to develop a
leadership training program to further
the development of study-discussion programs now being offered by the U.B.C.
extension department. It will augment
a three year grant made in 1957 by the
Fund for Adult Education to the University for the purpose of establishing and
experimenting with a program in the
liberal arts.
In its first one and a half years of
operation this program has organized
90 study-discussion groups involving
more than 1,100 participants. Under the
theme of "Living Room Learning," these
groups have been organized in a number
of B.C. communities—Vancouver, North
Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby,
New Westminster, Whalley, White Rock,
Langley, Haney, Courtenay, Comox,
Powell River, Prince George and
These groups are operated with the
help of discussion leaders who are recruited from the local community and

Miss Annie Graham Hill, of New
Westminster, who graduated from U.B.C.

and  a pioneer civil engineer.
The Reverend John A. Ross, rector
of St. Andrew's Hall, dedicated the
tower at ceremonies on December 28
attended by students and friends of Miss

Without such interchange," he said, "the

a ten-year membership, does not imply
that we will sever our athletic relationships with the well-organized colleges in
Washington, but rather that we will now
intensify our efforts to develop Canadian
intercollegiate competition wherever possible. In recent years we have played
Alberta in basketball and hockey, and
have competed in the Churchill Cup
football game against McGill, Toronto
and Western Ontario.

Learn  To Swim
Empire pool at the University of
British Columbia is now open for both
public swimming and swimming lessons,
Dr. Douglas Whittle, of U.B.C.'s school
of physical education, announced recently.
The pool will be open every day for
public swimming and lessons will be
given every day except Sunday. Arrangements can be made for private swimming
lessons at any convenient time, Dr.
Whittle said.
Other courses to be given at the pool
during the summer include skin diving
and lifesaving instruction. There will
also be courses designed to train qualified instructors in both these fields.
Applications for swimming instruction and other courses can be obtained
by writing or telephoning to the school
of physical education at U.B.C, ALma

A.M.S.   Public   Relations  Officer
A "sacrilegious, blasphemous goon
edition" are four words Students' Council doesn't want to hear for a long time.
Following the March 26 goon edition
of the Ubyssey, Students' Council at a
special meeting suspended, for the first
time in the history of the student newspaper, the entire staff and editorial board.
Reason for this drastic action was the
disgusting, crude and weak attempt of
the entire edition to criticize and lampoon
Christianity, the government and Mrs.
Roosevelt. Intelligent cirticism is always
welcome but Students' Council and the
Faculty Council felt the Ubyssey had
overstepped its privileges and powers
and carried things just too far.
Needless to say, downtown press and
papers across Canada were quick to pick
up the "good copy" giving U.B.C. more
publicity than it had had all year, ending
up with an editorial questioning the
"need" for more money for "higher
Councils, both student and faculty, met
and met again, discussed, decided, interviewed those responsible and issued
press releases to an eager press, with the
result: that the staff's fun and frolicking
ended   with   a   special   council   edition,

apologies from the editor and his assistant, suspension of the editor and most
of that edition's staff for a year from
work on the paper, and unfortunately a
good deal of damaging publicity.
A Protest
Earlier in the term solemn students
protested the $100 fee increase by a mass
demonstration on the campus blaming
Premier Bennett for not raising U.B.C.'s
operating grant sufficiently to avoid the
increase. Students marched to the cairn,
draped it with black academic gowns
and placed a lighted "lamp of learning"
on top. Student councillor George Feaver
played the last post and Chuck Connaghan, past president, snuffed out the
lamp with a fire extinguisher labelled
"milk of human kindness—Social Credit
style." Other placards bore slogans such
as "Till debt do us part" and "Bennett
can you spare a dime."
Permission  Refused
Last March Chuck Connaghan, in a
petition to the government, asked special
leave to appear before the bar of the
House in Victoria to discuss the inadequate grant to U.B.C.
The privilege had only been granted
once before and he was refused but
was granted permission to address a few
members of the cabinet. He and Pete
Meekison, the new president, with two
other students, took advantage of the
opportunity and met for the second time
this spring in Victoria to discuss U.B.C.'s
Committees   Formed
Last February, 52 constituency action
committees were formed comprised of
four students from each electoral district
in the province. These groups were
formed to help fight the fee increase
battle. Throughout the summer months
these students, who were well briefed
before they left U.B.C. after exams, will
be speaking to interested organizations
and groups in their home towns through-
hint to husbands:
When the family's away for the summer, there you'll be,
alone at last . . . just you and your dirty dishes. What better time
than right now, this summer, to invest in a modern, automatic
dishwasher! Just whisk dishes into the unit and electricity does the
rest, washes and dries them automatically. The kitchen stays
tidy, dishes stay in one piece, and you'll stay out of hot water!
Something else, too. Your wife will enjoy the work-saving
convenience of an automatic dishwasher all year 'round. She'll
have more time for other tasks around the house or garden.
And for years to come, she'll praise the summer day you visited
your appliance dealer - for the latest in a portable or
built-in automatic dishwasher. Make it soon!

the people about U.B.C. A Ubyssey
which was published containing facts,
graphs and supporting stories has been
distributed along with other information
by these students to press and radio as
well as to interested groups. In the
event of an election at the end of the
summer the machinery would be already
set up for an organized campaign.
Another Councillor
Students at the spring general meeting
voted to add another member to the
Students' Council. They were faced with
the choice of either putting the editor
of the Ubyssey off council or putting
the co-ordinator of publications, a recent
ly created position, in his place. A compromise was reached—the editor stayed
and the co-ordinator was added, now
making the total number of councillors
16. with three non-voting members. At
press time of the spring edition of the
Chronicle three elected positions remained  to  be  filled  on  the  Council.
Major non-council positions went to
Norm Gish, World University Service of
Canada chairman; Theo Carroll, National
Federation of Canadian University Students chairman; Mike Warren, Special
Events chairman and Ruth Kidd and
Charles Lancaster, co-chairman of the
Academic Symposium.
Odds And  Ends
Four councillors attended the Pacific
Students Presidents Association Conference in Reno, Nevada, in May. From
all reports a good time was had by all.
. . . Once again high school tours were
carried out successfully in May by visiting
student councillors. However this year
only schools on the lower mainland were
visited . . . U.B.C. will send three delegates to the NFCUS seminar at Uni-
versite de Montreal in August to discuss "Influence of various cultures on

Canadians, more than any other people,
benefit from electric power. Abundant
low-cost electricity is one of the
important reasons for so many busy
factories . . . greater production of goods
. . . and better paying jobs. In offices,
on farms, and in homes, everywhere,
electric power makes life easier and
more enjoyable.
What Does LBE Mean to You?
LBE stands for "Live Better . .. Electrically",
and these words have a very real meaning
behind them.
In the home, for example, planned lighting
brings new charm and cheerfulness to every
room. Modern appliances :n the kitchen and
laundry save time and toil. Other appliances
contribute to our leisure and entertainment.
Automatic heating and air conditioning add
to our comfort. There probably isn't an area
in your home that cannot be equipped electrically to give more convenience, more comfort, and more service.
In home, office or factory the first essential
is an up-to-date wiring system — to get the
best results from the electrical products now
in use, and provide for those you expect to
acquire. Your local power company, your
provincial Electric Service League, or any
qualified electrical contractor will be glad to
provide expert advice and help you to plan
to "Live Better . . . Electrically".
Manufacturers of equipment that generates, transmits and distributes electricity
.. . and the wide variety of products that put it to work in home and industry.
