At one of their "Back Mac" campaign rallies last
spring, students listened to the president explain the
university's position. This issue of the Chronicle
brings the facts in greater detail to the alumni.
3 Working for a year or more
would be a good prerequisite
to entering university,
says Katz
LOGGER
Faculty of Education, UBC
The idea that a year or more in employment would be
a desirable prerequisite for admission to university presupposes that there is a kind of education to be
obtained in employment which would be of benefit to
those seeking a university education. I believe the idea
has particular if not general application.
The student who comes to the university with a
definite goal in mind, knows what the university has to
offer, knows how to make use of all its resources, and
knows the value of time, of effort, and of purpose. I
believe this student would lose more than he would
gain by spending a year in employment not associated
with his purpose.
In the main, a year in employment would be desirable for two classes of students, those with no clear idea
and those with, at best, only a hazy idea of what their
goals in life are. These students have not reached any
conclusion as to the kind of work they want to do—if
any—and for them a year or more in employment
would be beneficial to enable them to arrive at some
clear conception as to what the world's work is, and
as to what their place in it might be.
Beyond the question of purpose, there is the matter
of the nature and character of work itself, and the part
it can play in the education of the student. Certainly
there are students who have had little experience in
factory, office or field, and who, in consequence, lack
an appreciation of the way in which work is actually
done. For these students the realities of work provided
by employment would be salutary in balancing a too
sheltered set of ideals and imaginings with actual
performance.
Too often, and particularly in urban societies, some
students fail to develop a sense of responsibility and
direction which concrete tasks require for execution. In
other instances, the halo effect which students associate
with working with ideas and ideals in an academic
institution precludes the realization that the successful
performance of a task requires as much patience, perseverance, and planning with people as is required in
working with objects and ideas.
Although modern developments in science and technology have radically reduced the need for many kinds
of semi-skilled and unskilled labor—the kinds of tasks
usually reserved for part-time workers—there are still
many kinds of work which can help the student find his
bearings so far as his particular abilities, aptitudes, and
interests are concerned.
If the student is fortunate in finding work directly or
indirectly related to his field of special interest then
indeed he will benefit from learning about what are
the most recent developments in his field, as for example in the case of a student planning to enter the
field of engineering, or business.
If the student in this hypothetical year of employment
was not able to find work even remotely related to his
special field, he might still benefit from the general
knowledge acquired. In either instance he would have
an opportunity to learn what he dislikes as well as
what he likes.
Again, although the rate at which changes are taking
place in our society has increased markedly in the past
quarter century, the point at which these changes are
most dramatic is at the point of application. What happens in science may be significant, but what happens in
society is the ultimate test. It is in employment that the
student can see the reality of the ultimate applications
of the findings of the laboratory. It is in employment
that the uncertain student can benefit most from the
realization of what change means in respect of how
things are done as well as why they are done.
It is one thing to speculate upon change; it is quite
another to be involved in it.
Modern developments in the social and physical
sciences, and in the humanities have tended to alter
some of the earlier conceptions of work. Modern technology has taken some of the drudgery out of work, as
it has some of the stultifying routines. Modern psychology and psychiatry have revealed some of the
therapeutic values of work as an exercise. Studies of
(continued page 6) Stay in school, that's
the best advice I can give,
says Swangard
HEADS
Erwin Swangard
Managing Editor, "The Sun"
Stay in school!
That's the best advice I can give to a young man or
woman who wants to take a year or two out of school
before continuing his or her education.
It is easy to give up school for a year or two, but it
is much tougher to go back.
Too often I have seen young men and women take
a year out of school and stay out forever. Some of them
have been bright youngsters who could easily have
completed a university degree program, but the lure of
pocket money, a car, perhaps a girl friend has overcome the desire to learn and they have dropped out of
school never to return.
I believe that a youngster can get on-the-job experience and still continue with his studies.
He can work weekends, or perhaps an evening or
two a week. A number of university students work one
or two days a week at The Sun. Their earnings keep
them in pocket money, and, for those intending to make
a career of journalism, they are getting valuable newspaper experience.
At a time when more and more students must be
encouraged to go on to university we must help young
people to stick to their studies. This fact is made plain
when we consider that of 100 students who start school
in Vancouver only 18 go on to first-year university and
only 11 of these go on to second year.
Encouraging students to take time out to work would,
in my estimation, only cut further into the number of
students who go on to university.
But perhaps the most important reason why young
people should stay in school is that they should complete their formal education as quickly as possible so
that their talents can be used at a time when their
minds are most productive.
Instead of slowing down the education process it
must be speeded up.
Dr. Gordon Shrum, chancellor of Simon Fraser
University said recently that most Nobel prizewinning
physicists received their awards for work they did
between the ages of 28 and 32. These are considered
to be man's peak productive years.
However, Dr. Shrum pointed out that by the time
a student gets his PhD and does post-doctoral studies
in his field he is 30 years of age. Some of his most
productive years have already been lost.
Dr. Shrum said he hopes to get around this by
allowing bright students to get through university more
quickly, permitting them to complete their formal
education when they are still in their mid-twenties so
that society may get the full benefits of their productive
talents.
The old story that a student has to take a year or
two out of university to get enough money to carry on
does not, I believe, apply to-day.
Adequate scholarships, bursaries and loans are
available to-day to all good students and none need
drop out because of lack of money.
However, perhaps the university year could be rearranged into the quarter system which is now being
developed widely in the U.S. A student can attend any
three quarters and take the fourth off to work. This
could cut down on the traditional summer scramble for
jobs because it would allow the student to take a winter, fall or spring term off.
But I wonder, too, just how academic the argument
I am putting forward in this article is in the light of the
changing concepts of education today. Perhaps we are
too prone to look at today's educational system in the
same way as we looked at education when we went to
school, when, in fact, the world today is drastically
different from the world in which we were educated.
We know for certain that coming changes will make
it again a totally different world in which our children
will have to be brought up.
Instead of worrying about whether a student should
interrupt his education by going to work for a year or
two, we should be worrying more about how his education is preparing him for a working world where his job
is likely to be obsolete within a year or two. Our educa-

LOGGERHEADS
individual and group dynamics have shown that value
images derive from feelings of satisfaction in being
useful and productive. These findings have all contributed to effecting a change in attitude toward work
as work, and to its place in the scheme of human
affairs.
Whether or not work is considered in the context of
social necessity or moral obligation, the place of work
has changed over the centuries in direct proportion to
changes in social organization and technological development. In effect, as social classes have melded, so
has work moved up in the hierarchy of our value
systems. At the same time, technological developments
have demonstrated that work of whatever nature is
valuable in itself. Nevertheless, we continue to distinguish between work which involves the muscles, and
work which involves the mind, and attribute to the
second a higher place than we do to the first. In essence
students at some point have to recognize that work is a
function of force rather than of form.
Attitudes toward work have derived in part from the
leisure class conception that work was menial and in a
way denigrating. We haven't even in this day, escaped
the feeling that work is contaminating of the aesthetic
senses. And this despite the fact that work is the will
in action.
The proposition that a year or more in employment
would be a desirable prerequisite for admission to
university depends in the last analysis upon whether or
not the student has learned to work by the time he
applies to the university. It would seem, in the light of
the foregoing examination, that unless a student, in the
course of acquiring satisfactory standings in English,
History, Mathematics, Science, and the like, has also
acquired an understanding of, and a capacity for work,
a year or more in employment would be indicated.
tion no longer ends with a university degree or a high
school diploma. We are now confronted with not only
a new phenomenon but almost a new dimension in the
process of education.
The idea of continuing education, of continuous
learning, often referred to as adult education has taken
over as an equal partner with the elementary school,
the high school and the university.
Education has become a lifetime affair that ceases
only with death. So, in effect, no matter when we get
out of school our education must continue. In fact, we
can no longer claim that we were educated in one particular school or one particular university. We were
lucky if we merely learned how to learn and we are
blessed with the supreme gift if we learned to love the
process of learning.
Unless this concept becomes firmly established in
the minds of not only the educators and teachers but
of everybody concerned, our schools and even our
universities will become mere factories for obsolete
people with obsolete minds.
And while we may be able to afford obsolete
machines, obsolete minds are a luxury our society cannot afford. Changes in our outlook and our approach
to education have been coming fast; we must not be
slow in adapting to those changes.
Walter Lippman said not long ago: "The critical
weakness of our society is that for the time being our
people do not have great purposes which they are
united in wanting to achieve. The public mood of the
country is defensive—to hold and conserve, not to push
forward and create. We talk about ourselves these days
as if we were a complete society, one which has
achieved its purposes and has no further great business
to transact."
We must get off the defensive!

UBC coach works
to restore classic ideal
by Al Fotheringham
It's an interesting fact that UBC, which has had
more than its share of trouble trying to find its athletic
niche at the local or national level in recent years, has
in fact had much better fortune when it has attempted
something of international challenge.
The first, of course, was the story of the rowers who,
through an uncompromising leader and young men who
set high enough goals for themselves, reached world
standard in spite of supposedly insurmountable
obstacles.
The second case is now in progress on the campus,
as another demanding leader has set a world target for
some young men who are pursuing it at considerable
personal sacrifice.
Father David Bauer, with his aim of winning the
world and Olympic hockey title with college students
instead of retread professionals, has evolved a truly
audacious plan. For Canada to be represented abroad
by citizens who are both hockey players and gentlemen
is a departure that is likely to hike the unemployment
rate alarmingly among European headline writers.
Not since the early days of the sport—before the
professionals ruined it with their greed—has Canada
sent abroad such players as Father Bauer is now training, players who were hand-picked for their idealism
and spirit as much as they were for their skill on hockey
skates.
Make no mistake about it. Father Bauer is trying to
prove something here, just as Frank Read attempted to
prove—and succeeded—that Canadian young men
were as good as any in the world if they were only prepared to work. There is a parallel here too with the
rowers. Father Bauer wants only those players who will
give of themselves for the national cause.
When he came up with his plan—to gather some of
Canada's outstanding college hockey players at UBC
and train them together for the Olympics—he approached in Toronto the key players he had in mind.
"I have no money available as yet." he told them. "I
don't know if this is going to work. But would you be
willing to walk to Vancouver if necessary to get to my
training camp?"
(continued page 8) from page 7
UBC coach works
When the reply was "yes," Father Bauer decided,
and only then, to go ahead.
He had left hockey the year before this. He left it
because he was dismayed and disillusioned with what
the professionals had done to the game he loved. Father
Bauer is of a famous hockey family. He gave up a
beckoning professional career in the game to enter the
priesthood, only to emerge as the brilliant coach of the
proud hockey school of St. Michael's College in Toronto. He won a Canadian junior championship before
he (and St. Mikes) dropped the sport, unhappy with the
direction it was taking.
It was after his transfer to St. Mark's College at UBC
that he came up with the plan, a plan that he thinks
might save a game that is degenerating into violence. IF
a team of college students can win the Olympic title, he
feels, Canadian spectators may once again be allowed
to watch a skilful, swift style of play now existing only
overseas, the colleges may be able to regain some autonomy in the NHL-dominated system and talented
youngsters may be allowed to finish their education
before being whisked away at 15 into the maw of the
farm club system.
Father Bauer is trying to restore the classic amateur
ideal and attitude into the deadly serious business of
Olympic hockey, a competition now distorted by rampant nationalism, press emotionalism and political
pressures. To do it, he first considered 100 top young
players. He wanted only those who would be proud to
wear national colors abroad.
Some eliminated themselves, by the simple expedient
of inquiring what was in it for themselves. Others were
not up to the Bauer standard of conduct. Eventually he
invited 34 to training camp—to-day 20 of them survive.
There is another parallel here with the rowers. The
hockey players had to do their own carpentry work to
provide living quarters. The abandoned wireless station
on university land was repaired and expanded.
The players, gathered from six provinces, now attend
UBC. They've been playing an arduous exhibition
schedule across Western Canada, preparing for the
Olympics and impressing fans with a swift style of
hockey that we have abandoned to the foreigners.
Father Bauer drives them, inspires them. They worship
him.
They leave Vancouver the day after Christmas for a
mission that could determine the future style of play in
a once-great game in this country. First an exhibition
tour of Europe—then the Olympics beginning January
29 in the beautiful Austrian town of Innsbruck. It's a
tremendous challenge.
If there's a lesson in this for the troubled world of
UBC athletics, perhaps it is in the joy of daring to aim
high enough. The young men are available; is someone
underestimating their capacity?
Three well-known UBC sports figures will play
an important part in Canada's bid for the 1964
Olympic Games hockey championship.
The Canadian team, made up of players now
attending UBC, will leave Vancouver December
26. Manager of the team will be Dr. Bob Hindmarch of the physical education staff, a great
all-round athlete in his student days in the early
50's. Team physician will be Dr. Jerry Nestman,
former Thunderbird football star who has been
active in alumni work. Trainer of the team will
be Johnny Owen, a UBC institution known to
every athlete who has nassed through the university in the last 30 years.
UBC's new winter sports arena has contributed greatly to the Bauer experiment,
for it is here that the Olympic hopefuls
have been regularly working out. The
new arena was officially christened during the Homecoming weekend when the
Olympic   team   defeated   the   Canadian
i^*-m,-49
Junior Champion Edmonton Oil Kings
2-0. The new building, located south of
Agronomy Road, cost $500,000. Students
and administration covered the cost in
equal shares. The sports complex contains a hockey rink, six curling sheets,
offices, snackbars, curling lounge and
dressing rooms.
Every man and his dog came to
Homecoming. Here Mrs. John (Barbara) Norris, BA'48, and "Lady"

8 Walter Sage dies
Old order passes
In the death of Walter Noble Sage on September 11,
1963, at the age of seventy-five, the Senate of the University of British Columbia lost a familiar figure and
one of its most devoted members. Serving his first term
in 1939-1942, Dr. Sage was re-elected in 1945, and
thereafter was regularly returned by Convocation, completing eighteen years of continuous service in May of
the present year.
As we look back on his long career of teaching in
this university, from 1918 to 1953 and for two further
years after reaching retiral age, we sense a passing of
the old order, a dramatic moment of completeness. His
death has come in the year of transition, between the
period of vigorous pioneering growth and an era of
institutional expansion and change in higher education.
Dr. Walter Noble Sage
Born in London, Ontario, in 1888, Walter Sage was
educated in both Canadian and English schools, and
received his degrees from Oxford University and the
University of Toronto. He lectured at Calgary College
and at Queen's University, and at the age of thirty
started his long association with the University of
British Columbia, where for the last twenty years of his
teaching career he was Head of the Department of
History.
His interest in the history of his adopted province
began early, with an article in 1921 on "The Gold
Colony of British Columbia." The interest became a
scholar's passion, reflected in his fostering of regional
studies and creation of new courses, in his active concern with historic sites and monuments, in the numerous historical associations he assisted or presided over,
and in the steady output of books and articles that
contributed to the historical knowledge of the Pacific
Northwest.
To him history, whether of the British Empire or of
British Columbia, was a living study, absorbing for its
revelation of human personality in action.
It was this obvious enjoyment that made him a
popular teacher, communicating his own pleasure in
incident and anecdote, and delighted to discover and
encourage a similar passion for history in the young.
Generations of students at this university share the
classroom memory of a burly figure shaking with infectious laughter while recalling the foibles of the great, or
revealing an eager interest in the inter-relationships of
character and event.
That such memories persisted long after the days of
undergraduate lectures, strengthened by the image of a
man kindly and helpful in both student and community
life, is evident in the unswerving loyalty shown him by
Convocation. Tim   Hollick-Kenyon,   Director,   and
senior secretary, Eileen Warnock
Trail to Tokyo-
office serves you
In may 1963 British Columbia's seventh regional conference on higher education was held in Trail. The year before Tokyo UBC Alumni Branch had
its first meeting, with fourteen present.
Those two events, physically widely
separated, spiritually kissing-kin, are just
illustrations of the Alumni Association
at  work.
The Alumni Association. That's you,
dear reader, and some 23,999 other
graduates of UBC, graduation having
automatically made you a member of
the Association. You don't get, you won't
get, any dues notices or membership
card, because the Association operates
through its fund-raising campaigns. You
are a member whether you like it or
not. We believe you like it, but may not
know too much about it, so here's the
story.
It's you who provided Norman MacKenzie Alumni Scholarships of $300 each
to help Terence Marion of Dawson
Creek, Frances Guile of Kamloops,
North, James Gyoba of Spuzzum, and
thirty-nine other promising young students to come to the Point Grey and
Victoria campuses this year. You did the
same for a different forty-two last year,
and the good work will go on through
funds allocated from Alumni Annual
Giving.
A donor can earmark his donation
for any of forty to forty-five different projects. Unallocated funds have
gone to such objects as the President's
alumni fund (which is used for special
needs and emergency requests), the
regional scholarships mentioned above,
the library, athletics.
Move to a new job in a strange city,
and your first step after house hunting
is to turn to page 42 of the Chronicle,
that page with the repulsive small type,
and find the name and address of your
Branch contact. Now you are no longer
a stranger in a strange land.
At the top of that same page 42 are
the names of the members of your
Board of Management. Note the regional
representatives on the Board. When any
region organizes a university association
(within which will be several branches),
they may, once they are recognized, appoint a representative to the Board.
Note also those ex officio members who
are the Association's liaison with the
student body. There are representatives
for every degree and there are the three
Senate representatives appointed by the
Board, the Alumni liaison with the university administration.
The Board of Management has the responsibility of carrying on the work of
the Association. They meet quarterly.
The executive committee is a very hardworking group that meets monthly or
oftener if need be. On it are the president, the immediate past president, first,
second and third vice-presidents and
eight members-at-large.
In the next issue of the Chronicle
you will see a notice of the annual
meeting of the Association—always held
in May — and instructions on how to
nominate a member for election to the
Board of Management — an extremely
simple procedure, incidentally. Only
active members have the right to vote,
but a very modest contribution to AAG
gets any alumnus on the active list. In
fact, under the by-laws anyone who has
completed fifteen units of work at UBC
may become a member of the Alumni
Association.
Another category is the community
member, a highly valued addition to the
alumni fellowship. Under the bylaws any
person, not a graduate, who has demonstrated an active interest in the needs of
higher education may be admitted to
membership. There are as well life and
honorary members.
All these persons, it is expected, subscribe to the aims of the Association.
Some of those aims are: to educate public opinion regarding the needs, the use
and benefit of the University of British
Columbia and education in general; to
adopt a definite policy on questions
affecting the University, education in the
province, graduates of the University,
and persons engaged in educational work
in the province; to encourage interest
among the graduates of the University
in elections to the Senate of the University.
These objects add up to a big order
which, of course, is the thing that makes
belonging to the Alumni Association
worthwhile.
The people who implement the
policy and decisions of the Association
and its Board of Management are to
be found at Room 252, Brock Hall. The
latch string is always out here for
alumni who may care to drop around
and visit on business, or just visit.

Alumni Staff
always ready
Your alumni office staff presently
totals ten people, each with distinct and
specific duties. This staff is maintained
to serve the alumni and the University,
and to carry out the policy and program
laid down by the Board of Management
of the Alumni Association.
The staff is headed by the Alumni
Director, who is appointed by the Board
of Management, and carries out various
duties as assigned by the Board. These
involve the maintenance of contacts with
Alumni, students, Faculty, and the University administration, and handling enquiries on a daily basis from alumni and
alumni groups throughout the world.
The director also visits alumni branches
and regional groups throughout British
Columbia, and arranges alumni meetings throughout North America and
various other parts of the world. He is
responsible to the Board for the general
maintenance of the alumni program, and
the operation of the Alumni Office.
Your Assistant Director is a genial
young man by the name of Gordon
Thorn. Gordon, a graduate of UBC, with
a slight detour to Maryland for an
MBA, is responsible for the annual programs of the Association: Alumni
Annual Giving, Homecoming, Reunions,
Annual Meeting, plus the business
affairs of the Chronicle magazine, and
the various Faculty degree divisions.
The Chronicle is presently produced
by a full-time editor in the person of
Miss Elizabeth Norcross, our most recent addition to the full-time staff. Miss
Norcross has an extensive writing background, and this issue of the Chronicle
is her debut as our editor.
As you walk through the Alumni
office door, the first person you meet is
our senior secretary, Miss Eileen War-
nock, who supervises the office staff
as well as casual student staff that is
hired for peak periods, meets and greets
visitors to the office, and handles the
multitude of details that constantly flow
into your alumni office.
Our bookkeeper, Mrs. Christine
Smith, is the most senior employee in
terms of length of service, having been
with the Alumni office for 3'/4 years.

Mrs. Margrit Schnetz, our Swiss representative on staff, is the fund clerk
for Alumni Annual Giving, and is responsible for sending out all the AAG
mailings, compilation of AAG's statistical
analysis, and for seeing that all donations
are acknowledged.
Mrs. Doreen Bleackley combines two
very important jobs: keeping the graduates' addresses up to date on the master

Student housing:
an extra dimension

residence can lounge, read, gossip in the pyjama
Student housing on campus is not just a matter of
providing a roof for the student's head and balanced
meals for his stomach; it's an extra dimension in
university education.
Stephen Leacock in one of his essays had this to say
about his ideal university: ". . . The real thing for the
student is the life and environment that surrounds him.
All that he really learns he learns, in a sense, by the
active operation of his own intellect and not as the
passive recipient of lectures. And for this active operation what he really needs most is the continued and
intimate contact with his fellows. Students must live
together and eat together, talk and smoke together.
Experience shows that that is how their minds really
grow. And they must live together in a rational and
comfortable way ..."
With that as their philosophy, Housing Director John
Haar and Dean of Women Helen McCrae are trying to
make student housing on campus provide an atmosphere as educative as the classroom, the laboratory and
the library.
Two thousand UBC students breathe this atmosphere. The physical framework for it is provided by the
permanent dormitories plus the well-worn army huts
of Fort Camp and Acadia. The huts have the advantage
of cheapness. The residences—well, let's take a tour.
The newest are on the Lower Mall, four-storey
structures of warm brick. Here we can go over a
women's residence. The students' rooms, some single
some double, are light and bright, and are furnished to
serve as both comfortable bedrooms and studies. On
the ground floor is a spacious reception area with a
kitchenette off, largely ignored in favour of the small
"pyjama rooms" on each floor.  "Socializing is hori- zontal," Dean McCrae points out, and furthermore, the
girls like to be crowded. Each of these small lounges
has its tiny kitchen where bedtime snacks can be
prepared.
The men's residences are comparable, except for the
individual floor lounges which no one thought of for
them. When more residences are built, they'll have
"bull rooms" as the masculine equivalent of the women's pyjama rooms. In the main, both sexes prefer
single bedrooms, except for the frosh who like a roommate, and, in John Haar's opinion, are the better for
one. For economic reasons, more of the seniors will
have to put up with company in the new residences.
Each residence has its own "government", composed
of a don, a resident fellow who is a scholarship student,
and a students' committee.
Serving both men's and women's dormitories is the
Commons Block which has men's and women's separate
lounges, to which they may bring visitors of the opposite sex, a recreation hall in the basement, and a long,
pleasant, upper floor room which is the cafeteria. A
toast room for late breakfasters opens off it. On the
main floor is a canteen which carries just about everything in the way of iktas that a student in residence
might require, from bromo-seltzer to nylons.
Fort and Acadia, which many students have to prefer for financial reasons, have recently acquired fairly
good lounges.
For married couples there is some minimal provision
left over from the days of the veterans, 226 suites,
twenty-live of them permanent, which are rented to
junior faculty, graduate students and undergraduates, in
about equal thirds.
There we have the bricks and mortar of student
housing on campus. What happens within the walls that
is so special for the students so housed?
First of all, they come from out-of-town homes.
(Of the Vancouver students who apply, a mere handful
are admitted, and then only on medical or compassionate grounds.) This means that the residents meet
and mix with students not only from many different
parts of the province, but from many different countries, the first educational experience offered by the
campus dormitories. Secondly, there is a policy of
mixing up students of all years on every floor.
"It is possible to reinforce adolescent behaviour and
that is the major reason for mixing up the years," says
Dean McCrae. The girls and boys just come up from
high school copy their elders and drop their childish
ways. The presence of older students also makes for
stability, solves most disciplinary problems and many
personal ones as well.
The housing authorities are exploring other means
of enriching the resident student's academic experience.
At present, there are faculty dinners in all residential
units, two a year generally, to which members of the
faculty are invited with their wives for an informal
evening with the students. It is planned also to introduce "residence associates." Members of the faculty will
be invited to serve in this capacity, acceptance laying
them open to invitations to coffee, lunch, or any other
occasion, including pre-exam cram sessions (surely a
work of supererogation!), with a view to strengthening
academic relationships.
Looking after the students-in-residence physically
presents no particular difficulty. The problem is to develop the residences culturally and at the same time
see that there is a good academic atmosphere.
The cultural aspect is being fostered by the measures outlined above. The academic is taken care of by
the ruling that only students with a clear academic
record may expect the privilege of living in residence.
The State of the University Committee reporting in
1960, said, "It was the strong conviction of your Committee that the most privileged person on the campus
today is the student living in residence."
What percentage, then, of our student body is so
privileged? At present, 14%, a higher percentage for
women, lower for men. John Haar's goal is 25%.
The goal is a realizable one. The accompanying
dream is to make residence on campus not just the
privilege of the relatively well-heeled, but open also to
the boy and girl just getting by. The residences, with all
their desirable facilities, are paid for by the fees of the
residents, the mortgage principal and interest as well
as the operating costs. Provision of bursaries that
would defray in part the board and lodging expenses of
financially-straitened students is actually more than a
dream with Mr. Haar; it is part of his goal. Leacock's
ideal university may yet be open at UBC without money
barriers.
19 Canadian, American universities
— they're not that different
by Dr. A. N. MacDonald,
Department of History, University of B. C.
Recenty I ran through the 1963-64 calendar of one
of California's four-year state colleges and found the
following courses offered for credit: Industrial Arts
129: Automotive Systems Repair Procedures, Business
Education 182: Teaching Methods in Secretarial Subjects, Health Education 90: Principles of Healthful
Living, Journalism 17: Introduction to Photography,
Criminology 5: Traffic, Recreation 160: Camp Management.
Now it must be pointed out that this institution also
offered a very large number of legitimate university
courses. For all too many people, both in Canada and
elsewhere, frothy superficial trade school courses such
as those listed above symbolize advanced American
education.
From such evidence there is a tendency in Canada to
belittle American universities. Canadians would agree
that Harvard, Yale, Princeton and a few other elite
institutions are "great" universities, but beyond this
small handful, American universities are regarded as
clearly inferior to the Canadian product. In this article
I want to question such thinking, and suggest that
there isn't as great a difference between American and
Canadian universities as we would like to believe, but
rather that advanced education in the United States and
Canada is essentially similar.
At last count the United States had over two thousand institutions of higher learning and undoubtedly
they range from the world's best universities to the
world's worst. There are about 700 liberal arts colleges,
200 teachers colleges, and over 600 junior colleges.
Depending upon one's definition, there are somewhere
between 150 and 500 universities. These institutions
range in size from Goddard College in Vermont with
103 students to the University of California with over
44,000. A Princeton student pays a basic tuition fee of
$1550 per year, while his counterpart at Berkeley, if
he is a resident of the State of California, pays no
tuition whatever.
Canadian universities also show a great diversity,
though the range is not as great as in the United States.
Altogether we have about 50 universities, the best of
them are not as good, and the worst are not as bad, as
those in the U.S.
We all know of McGill, Queen's, the University of
Toronto, and UBC, with their big enrolments, large
faculties, and nation-wide recognition. But how many
of us could place Assumption University, Lakehead
College, Mount Saint Vincent College, Laurentian University, Saint Dunstan's University or Sir George
Williams University? It is pertinent to note that of
forty-nine institutions listed in the 1962 edition of
Canadian Universities and Colleges, twenty-one had
enrolments of under 500. If comparisons of Canadian
and American universities are to be meaningful at all,
they have to be made between comparable institutions.
The primary characteristic that indicates the similarity of Canadian and American universities is that
both nations are firmly committed to the philosophy of
university education for everyone who is capable of
profiting from it. As one indication of this pattern,
between 1910 and 1960 both American and Canadian
populations have about doubled, but in 1960 American
college enrolment was eight times, and Canadian enrolment six times, what it had been in 1910. By 1960, the
U.S. had one college student for every 50 people in the
total population, Canada one for every 120. By way of
contrast, as of 1957, the ratio for the United Kingdom
was one per 625.
". . . Concentration on quality is seen in the
entrance requirements set by many Canadian
universities. Access to higher education is being
determined more and more on the basis oj merit.
The best possible education for those of proven
intellectual excellence is, in many institutions,
favoured over higher education for as many as
possible."
— from a paper presented by the Very Rev. H. F.
Legare to the Conference "Canada's Universities in a New Age."
No one would dispute the fact that the idea of mass
university education has entailed many problems, especially the key one of maintaining standards, but the
United States and Canada seem to agree that educating
only the elite is a luxury that can no longer be afforded.
Another way in which Canadian and American universities are alike is that both feel the consequences of
a change in the source of support. Traditionally, uni-
20 For all loo many people, bolh in Canada
and elsewhere, frolhy superficial trade
school courses symbolize advanced
American education.
. . . The United States had over two
thousand institutions of higher learning and
undoubtedly they range from the world's
best universities to the world's worst.
versities have relied on a variety of private funds,
whether they be student fees, endowment incomes,
gifts or grants. But this is no longer the case. To-day for
example over half of the operating budgets of American
universities come from taxes, and over two-thirds of all
American college students are in public institutions.
This trend has not gone as far in Canada as in the
U.S., but we show the same basic pattern. In 1963,
UBC received 36% of its operating funds from the
provincial government and 25% from the federal
government. The University got over 55% of its income from the provincial government and 16% from
the federal in 1958, while Queen's, although it received
no money from the provincial government, got approximately 40% of its total income from the federal
government.
This shift from private to public control entails critical consequences. Universities can no longer be as
independent nor as indifferent to public wishes as they
once were. Faculty members can insist that a university
should be a place to train the mind or to develop the
intellectual capacity of a student to the fullest, or even
as a place to study something out of sheer curiosity. But
to John Q. Public who must foot the bill, all this is a bit
fuzzy. He sees the university as a training place for the
accountants, physicians, school teachers and other specialists society requires. Such pressure has led to a rapid
expansion of practical courses in Canadian and
American universities, and this well established trend
will undoubtedly continue.
Another consequence of the increased dependence
on public funds is that it tends to limit the academic
freedom of the university community. On this critical
issue, the Canadian record is distinctly better than that
of the United States, but it must be added that there are
some embarrassing inconsistencies to this generalization.
Finally, Canadian and American universities have
similar goals and face common problems. All universities worthy of the name are committed to the struggle
for excellence, whether it be measured by raised admission standards, increased number of honours courses,
or the establishment of PhD programs.
The problems universities face are also universal.
How do we maintain teaching effectiveness as enrol
ments soar? Should we rely on graduate students to
mark first year essays or handle group discussions?
What changes should be made in the curriculum? How
do we get and maintain a good staff if we can't meet
competitive bids? Is the faculty playing the role it
should in the government of the university? Are we
meeting the needs of the gifted student?
By the very nature of the problems facing all Canadian and American universities, UBC will find the
coming years hectic ones. In concentrating on these
problems, it is easy to overlook some of the very desirable conditions we enjoy at Point Grey. First of all, I
would suggest that a basic respect for intellectual work
exists at UBC. This climate of opinion, mood, call it
what you will, is hard to define and harder to generate,
but without it, university education is a farce. Student

—Paul Pirlot, University Affairs
interests and activities are also a good indication of the
character of a university and here, too, we have much
to be thankful for. UBC is not controlled by Greek row
fraternities, nor the football team, nor even the hockey
team—so much the better.
In his delightful book, Campus U.S.A., David Boroff
came to the conclusion after visiting and examining a
great number of American universities that all these
institutions could be divided into two categories. Into
the first category fell those institutions which did little
more than prolong adolescence, with the students living
in an isolated little world, far from any responsibilities
or obligations. The second category of universities were
those which represented a transition to adulthood, with
adult responsibilities and opportunities. These categories apply to Canadian universities as well. There is
no doubt that UBC falls into the second category and
we all must do our best to see that it stays there.

New Opportunity
for UBC Alumni
The next sixteen pages of this special issue of the
Chronicle contain UBC's plan to meet the "Challenge
of Growth."
This enclosure puts before you, for the first time, a
plan for development at UBC. It's a two-fold program
containing on one hand a three-year operating plan
designed to bring financial support of UBC up to the
national average and on the other hand a five-year
capital plan for development of our campus, a plan in
which certain priorities are established for construction
of buildings. The problem of writing an editorial for
this issue becomes much simpler than usual for it is
essential that all alumni of UBC understand the significance of this scheme and know about their responsibilities for its implementation.
Let's repeat once again, very briefly, the steps leading up to the publication of this plan. The Alumni
Association concerned over the "State of the University" began calling for a royal commission or at least
a study of the problems confronting higher education in
this province. In time this was done, for the Macdonald Report pointed up some of the needs of and
the crisis in higher education. The Provincial Government, acting upon recommendations within the Macdonald Report, passed legislation setting up a framework for development of new provincial universities.
It then fell to the Board of Governors at UBC to draw
up a program for development at UBC within the
terms of reference established this year by the new
Universities Act.
For some time the Board of Governors at UBC have
been under tremendous pressure from all constituents
of UBC to give leadership and direction and to plan
for the future growth expected at UBC. Presentation
at this time of their plan demonstrates the earnest way
in which they have carried out their responsibilities.
It is interesting to recall that barely a year has passed
since chaos and confusion confronted those responsible
for direction of affairs in the field of higher education
in this province. To-day, however, we have arrived at
the point where a plan exists for UBC, a plan which
embodies as a premise legislation that has created new
universities and provided for an academic board and
grants commission. (Alumni are awaiting with keen
anticipation an early announcement by the Provincial
Government that these two boards will soon be operating and appointments made to staff them.)
Before explaining to alumni the significance of this
report, it is a pleasure to compliment the Board of
Governors and the administration of our university on
the speed and dispatch with which this plan has been
put forward. It is a courageous and forthright program. It clears away confusion about present support
and points to the road ahead for UBC. Alumni have
wanted action for some time. The Board of Management of the Alumni Association have wanted clarification from the University about objectives and the road
ahead. Now that this plan is known, it is the responsibility of all alumni to help in its implementation.
Each alumnus must be certain he understands the
plan. It is essential to read the following 16 pages and
become familiar with the three and the five-year program ahead for UBC. For the first time, for instance,
the major sources of financial support are related to
each other. For the first time, it can be noted that
roughly two-thirds of all financial support for UBC
comes from areas other than the Provincial Government.
To implement this plan more contributions and more
support must come from the Federal Government and
from industry, commerce and other institutions and
foundations interested in the welfare of UBC, as well
as the Provincial Government. The proper exploitation
of our province's most precious resource—her young
people — will come when those who employ the
graduates of UBC recognize that they, as employers,
have some further responsibility for their education.
The Board of Management of the UBC Alumni
Association must begin planning immediately to help
with the orientation of these supporting groups. Pressure upon the Provincial Government for increased
allocations has been out of context to some extent with
pressure for increased support from other areas. It is
now possible, because of this plan, to establish a program to encourage more widespread financial endorsement for UBC.
Each alumnus must also know what he can do to
help. For now, after a long period wherein the Alumni
Association called for action from others, the time has
come to fulfill alumni responsibilities and take action.
It is the job of alumni to sell this plan endorsed by the

% AN OPEN LETTER TO THE ALUMNI
The "crisis in higher education" is making
headlines in many countries. This gentle phrase
has been used to label a potential disaster.
Unfortunately, like any catchphrase, it is easy
to ignore. It fails to convey the full impact
of a mounting emergency that affects
not just the West, but the entire world.
Crisis in higher education. What does this
really mean to the University of British Columbia
and to you- It means that our university
must plan now if it is to continue fulfilling
its responsibility for the development of
higher education in this Province. This brief
account tells how U.B.C. is planning to meet
the urgent demands of tomorrow. Planning in
quality - to improve the calibre of education
in the face of today's explosion of knowledge.
And planning in quantity - to provide that
education for rapidly increasing numbers of
students. These pages summarize our targets for
tomorrow, both academic and financial. The
requirements for operating the University are set
forth for the next three years; the priorities
in buildings for faculty and students cover a
period of five years and both are related
to the growth of the University for the next
seven years. This, then is what the University of
British Columbia must do to contend with
tomorrow - and why it is everybody's business.
^jiiik^^ tHC  POSt W3X   DclDlCS Where did the crisis come
from? One major factor is the soaring birth rate following World War II.
During the next three or four years, these post-war "babies" will
be entering college in a deluge. Today U.B.C. has 14,800 students. By
1966, that number will swell to 19,400. (U.B.C. will experience
this 31% increase in spite of the Province's new program to provide
other institutions for higher education.) Between now and 1970,
the total B.C. students seeking education beyond high school
will be 37,000 - if we can accommodate them. To do so,
our Province must create more facilities for higher education in
the next seven years than it has in all the years since
Confederation. U.B.C. must assume its share of this load.
Another crucial task for U.B.C. will be to educate the educators.
Meeting the Province's anticipated school population increase in the
next seven years will require 16,500 primary and secondary school
teachers. Much of this demand must be met by U.B.C.'s Faculty of
Education - the only large teacher-training facility in the Province.

tomorrow's university teachers, scientists and specialists in business
and industry: the guarantors of our future cultural and economic
well-being. More and more, every avenue of modern society demands the
knowledge, background and training of the Ph.D. Yet producing
even the number of Ph.D.'s required in educational institutions will
represent an enormous challenge for Canadian universities in
the years ahead. Between now and 1970, this country must acquire an
additional 16,000 full-time university faculty members. Yet it
currently graduates only about 300 Ph.D.s per year, and this is a
desirable level of qualification for university teachers. The universities
and colleges of British Columbia need nearly 200 new faculty members
each year. In former years, more than two-fifths of our new faculty have
come from the United States and Europe. But these sources are now
faced with the same world-wide shortage that confronts B.C.
and the rest of Canada. We will no longer be able to import faculty
members in quantity. We must now grow our own.
U.B.C.'s present graduate school enrolment is 1,128 students. That
number should increase to 1,530 students by 1966, and to 3,000 by
1970. To stimulate this needed growth, the University plans
to assign more than a million dollars for fellowships and teaching
assistantships for graduate students in the year 1964. This sum
will have to be increased in the years that follow.

Right now, U.B.C. is losing ground.
The average revenue from all sources for Canadian universities in
1962-63 is $1,797 per student. For U.B.C, this figure is $1,517.
If our university is to meet the demands of quantity and still improve the
quality of its education and research programs, it must compete
financially with other universities. Our goal over a three-year period
is straightforward: to achieve operating revenues equal to the
national average, which by 1966 will be $2,200 per student.

reasons. The first is obvious: more teachers are needed to cope with
surging numbers of undergraduates. The second reason may not
be so apparent. The need for rapid growth in the graduate school poses
special problems. Teaching at this level is even more demanding
in terms of the relationship between faculty member and student.
While faculty-to-student ratios of one to twelve or one to fifteen
are usual for undergraduate teaching, the ratio of faculty members is
often four to five times larger in a graduate school.
U.B.C.'s overall ratio is one faculty member to seventeen students.
(Many lectures by choice are given to large classes - over 500 in some
instances - but this does not replace the need for discussion groups
and laboratory supervision, which place heavy demands on the
University for teachers.) To do nothing more than maintain this present
inadequate ratio will require more than 100 new teachers each year. To
strengthen graduate teaching will require another 50 teachers a year.

STUDENTS PER YEAR
REQUIRED FACULTY Because even dedicated teachers are people, adequate salary is
an important factor in attracting qualified educators to a university. In
today's world of faculty shortage, salaries are on the increase. They
have been increasing by 3% per year in Canadian universities and by
5.8% in United States universities, where much of our competition exists.
In the past year some Canadian universities have allocated amounts
considerably exceeding 3% to salary increases. Last year, the
average salary at U.B.C. in each academic rank was fourth to ninth
(D.B.S.) among Canadian universities. Laval, McGill, Alberta, Toronto,
Western Ontario, Saskatchewan and several other universities
all had averages higher than those at U.B.C. in one or more ranks.
The Board of Governors at U.B.C. has declared that "it is its
continuing objective to provide salaries at least equal to those
paid at any Canadian university". This is a realistic goal if U.B.C.
is to remain among the leaders in Canada. It is crucial if U.B.C. is
to compete successfully with universities in other countries.

CANADIAN UNIVERSITIES
U.S.A. UNIVERSITIES LI1C llUlcHy   One of the important attributes of a leading
university is a first rate library. Such a library is a magnet for
superior students - and superior faculty. U.B.C.'s library has been
designed primarily to meet the needs of an undergraduate institution.
Now the needs include graduate and professional schools. In recent
years, all Canadian universities have been concerned over the
inadequacies of their library collections. The Williams Report (1962) on
the resources of Canadian university libraries showed that among
Canadian libraries, on a scale in which Toronto's size equalled 100,
McGill would be at 47, Laval 32, British Columbia 30, Queen's 20,
and Montreal 19. But on a scale in which the size of Harvard's
collections equalled 100, Toronto would be 25, and the University of
British Columbia 8. Our scarcity of books is only one problem. Staff
and physical facilities are also needed. In the light of our student
population, our advanced stage of study in some fields and our
graduate teaching and research needs - U.B.C.'s collections should be
doubled to reach a total of about 1,200,000 volumes. To do this,
our book budget must increase from $600,000 in 1964 to $1,000,000
in 1970. The library is the nerve centre especially for study and
research in the humanities and social sciences. These vital areas of
learning can thrive only if the library thrives.

U.B.C. 30 the computing centre The computing centre
is becoming almost as important to the modern university as its
library. As Canada's second university to establish a Computing Centre,
U.B.C. installed its first computer in March 1957, at a cost of $70,000.
Since that time twenty new computing centres have been established
in other Canadian universities. A computer cuts across many
fields of endeavor in a university. It is indispensable in both the natural
and social sciences, the library, engineering, medical and biological
sciences, mathematics and many other fields. Many students throughout
the University obtain instruction in computing science. For the
University of British Columbia to keep pace with developments in
modern computing science will call for an additional $100,000 in 1964.
The costs of supporting the computing centre with its present
highly qualified staff will continue to rise as more and more needs
develop for this modern technological tool. The benefits to the
University and the community will far outweigh the costs. professional growth: three examples
ENGINEERING. More than any other part of the University, the Faculty
of Applied Science will be involved in the development of new
science-oriented industries which already are beginning to change the
complexion of Canada's economy. These progressive industries are
dependent on the skills of specialists in such fields as electronics,
metallurgy, moletronics, solid state physics, plastics, and many others.
The future for Canada will be brighter with the development of strong
and diversified secondary industries based on modern science.
U.B.C. has on its Faculty a nucleus of outstanding engineers capable
of stimulating the growth of twentieth century technology. The
University must add to this nucleus and provide the buildings and equipment required to serve these increasing demands for engineering skills.
HEALTH SCIENCES. Health sciences derive strength from many
university departments such as sociology and psychology. But they can
also impart their own unique contributions to the University as a whole.
The entire field of behavioral sciences, which can be looked upon as the "new frontier" for the next fifty years of medicine, will progress faster through an intimate
relationship between the Health Sciences and the rest of the University. The strength of many disciplines
can then be brought to bear on problems of health. A Health Sciences Centre will also facilitate
the integration of various health sciences personnel into efficient teams. Modern patient care requires
physicians, dentists, specialists, nurses, various kinds of technicians, therapists and other
ancillaries. A university hospital will serve as a centre for co-ordinating the efforts of all these groups.
FORESTRY AND AGRICULTURE. As basic industries, forestry and agriculture profoundly affect
the provincial and national welfare. The enormous value of forest production in B.C. equals or
exceeds that in each of the states of Washington, Oregon and California. Yet, the average
budgets for the forestry schools in these three states exceeds that of U.B.C. by more than five to one.
Though the work of our Forestry faculty is sound, many areas important to the industry remain
unexplored. The program must be strengthened and extended.
Throughout its distinguished history at U.B.C. the Faculty of Agriculture has provided many important
services to the community. Here, the emphasis in future must tend more and more to
advanced study and research, to the education of the agricultural scientists. Both forestry and
agriculture are acutely in need of new facilities for the developing programs. These are the goals for U.B.C. - improved undergraduate education for more students, a significant growth in the
graduate school, the acquisition and retention of the best teachers, an adequate library for advanced study and
research, a computing centre to meet the demands of modern scholars, and continuing improvement in professional
education. The goals can be achieved by a society that believes that education is everybody's business.
tne   DUllQingS  The current building targets for U.B.C.
have been greatly influenced by the development of facilities elsewhere
in the Province. What may well be the last of the undergraduate
buildings, a multi-purpose class room, is now under construction.
However, most graduate and professional education in British Columbia
will still be available only at U.B.C. for many years to come. With this
in mind, plans have now been laid for a building program to serve
the graduate and the professional schools over the next five years.
These academic buildings plus services such as heating plant,
roads, power, etc. will require a building budget of at least 30 million
dollars over the next 5 years.

Board of Governors. The province and the country, as
well as industry and commerce, must be told that UBC
has a plan to meet the crisis of numbers in higher
education. To some, the program may seem ambitious,
but actually it sets out realistic and modest goals which
must be achieved if the crisis of numbers in higher
education in B.C. is to be resolved.
The undeniable fact remains that the future students
of UBC are now in our high schools. Early construction of Simon Fraser and enlargement of Victoria
University are essential. No matter how quickly these
two universities grow, though, they cannot grow so fast
as to entirely offset the surge of numbers about to
press upon UBC and the surge in demand for UBC's
leadership in developing programs of post-graduate
work, research and teaching.
Since its inception, UBC in times of need has been
able to count on its close friends. The Alumni Association thinks of itself as a close friend, and for this reason
will activate its membership to sell this scheme across
the province and elsewhere.
People no longer need be confused about objectives
at UBC. They have been stated in a plan entitled "The
Challenge of Growth." Alumni, however, must now
convince people that implementation of this plan
through public and private support is essential if the
record of academic achievement at UBC is to be maintained.
Alumni Association President
Alan M. Eyre
Donovan F. Miller
Mr. Justice Nemetz
Franklin E. Walden
Three graduates
to UBC Senate,
one to SFU
AT   ITS   SEPTEMBER    19    MEETING,   the
Board of Management of the Alumni
Association appointed the following to
serve on the Senate of UBC: Alan M.
Eyre, Donovan F. Miller, and Mr. Justice Nathan Nemetz.
Before he had time to assume the
senatorial hat as he puts it, Alan Eyre
was appointed to the Board of Governors of Simon Fraser University and,
therefore, resigned his UBC appointment. The Board of Management then
appointed Franklin E. Walden in his
place. The Senate has since elected three
alumni to the Board of Governors of
UBC—Stuart Keate, Donovan Miller and
Mr. Justice Nathan Nemetz.
It is interesting to note that of the
eleven members of the Board of Governors, six are alumni.
The  appointments  to  Senate  by  the
Board of Management of the Alumni
Association are made under a special
section of the new Universities Act, an
indication of the importance attached
to the Alumni Association's interest in
university matters. The appointees carry
into one of the major governing bodies
of the university the views of the
alumni.
Briefly sketched, here is the organization structure at UBC. The Board of
Governors consists of eleven people, six
of whom are appointed by the Lieuten-
ant-Governor-in-Council, three elected
by Senate. The Chancellor is elected by
Convocation and no longer is necessarily chairman of the Board. The 11th
member is the President, who is appointed by the Board of Governors to
this position. Under the new Act the
Board has the power to elect its own
chairman and did so this summer when
Mrs. Ross stepped down as chairman
and Mr. G. T. Cunningham, an honorary life member of the Alumni Association, took office.
The  government  appointees  are  Mr.
G. T. Cunningham, Mr. Leon Ladner,
Mr. Walter C. Koerner, Mr. E. Gunderson, Mr. John E. Liersch, and Mr.
Arthur Fouks.
Senate, on the other hand, is a very
large body, numbering nearly 80, most
of whom are faculty people. Under the
new Act no faculty person is eligible
to the Board of Governors. Convocation elects 15 to Senate, one of whom
is Mr. Keate. The Lieutenant-Governor-
in-Council appoints 4 to Senate; each
faculty is represented by the dean and
one other. The Board of Management
of the Alumni Association is empowered
by the Act to appoint 3 to Senate.
The President's office is the focal
point for all administrative and academic
matters. Recently Dean Perry has been
appointed vice-president of the University to help with administrative affairs
in areas such as fund raising and public
relations. Essentially the Senate, chaired
by the President, has ultimate responsibility for academic standards whereas
the Board of Governors is responsible
for the financing and operating of the
University community.
35 Campus Planning
$30 million plan
\ ^ ' * ^, -'.* .'ill
The Arts-Commerce building, one of first units of 5-year building plan, now under construction.
The university has embarked on a five-year $30
million building programme which will result in nine
new buildings.
John Porter, who in June gave up a downtown
architectural practice to become full-time physical planner at UBC, says the only thing that could hold up the
programme would be the lack of funds from Victoria.
The general planning policy is one leading toward
a concentration of students in the area of the main mall
and university boulevard, Porter said.
"But this type of concentration has its problems.
We've got to be careful we don't get so concentrated
we use up the campus green areas. We've planned to
avoid this and it's likely all the major green area will
remain.
"Nothing will be done with the library lawn or the
lawn in front of the old arts building."
Planned for 1964-65 are:
• a multi-purpose arts-commerce building at the
corner of the main mall and university boulevard;
• an agriculture-forestry building on the extension
of the main mall south;
• a music building in the present fine arts complex
just next to the faculty club on the north end of the
main mall;
• a dentistry building which will go on to Block A
of the medical complex across from the memorial gym.
For 1965-66:
• the metallurgical section of the engineering complex along the extension of the main mall south.
• a very substantial addition to the biological sciences building;
For 1966-67:
• completion of the  engineering complex  by the
addition of civil and mechanical engineering sections.
For 1967-68:
• a new school of social work building.
Now under construction are extensions to the newly-
completed education building and the physics building,
new residences and the start of the engineering complex.
"And," says Porter, "if funds can be found from
outside sources, the new $15 million teaching hospital
will be started with the five-year plan."
Porter said the campus plan will mean the "student"
centre of the campus will be at the main mall and
university boulevard.
"At this point we shall have four buildings, education, biological science, physics, and the new arts-
commerce complex, which in total will handle 14,000
students.
"Our plan is to concentrate student population in
this central area. Time and rainy weather make this
desirable.
"If the campus becomes too sprawling students will
simply not have time to get from one class to another
in the present seven-minute break. We've figured that
a student can walk about 2,000 yards in that time and
we hope to keep most of the major familities within a
circle of a 2,000-yard diameter, centred roughly at the
main mall and the boulevard."
"There's not much question that we are going to
need the facilities we have planned," Porter said. "Our
undergraduate enrolment is almost certain to exceed
the 17,500 limit now set, because Simon Fraser will
not be open in time to drain off some of the student
flow. So what we shall be faced with is a couple of
years of overcrowding until the new university opens.
36 Even the completion of the proposed building plan
will not alleviate this."
One of the major headaches facing Porter is planning for campus parking.
"In 1962-63 there were about 12,000 cars a day
moving in and out of the campus. Most of these come
in a one-hour period in the morning. By 1966-67 we
estimate that number will be up to 18,500."
There are three classes of parking needed on the
campus, Porter said. The first is for visitors, the second
for faculty and staff and the third for students.
"One of our main objectives will be to encourage
people coming to the campus to use an improved rapid
transit system. "Hopefully we can get an express bus
service cross-town along Broadway through to the
university. If we can get such a system into operation
we hope both faculty and students will use it and help
solve the problem.
"For faculty members who do bring their cars we're
planning four faculty lots, two on each side of the
2,000-yard circle. This will enable most faculty members to get their cars fairly close to their offices.
"Unfortunately student parking will be farthest from
the campus. A new lot, just north of the present sports
arena will have facilities for about 4,000 cars and
should handle most of the student traffic."
Porter said he hopes the lots will be paved and
lighted.
Porter has five campus architects working with him
in the planning and is also assisted by a firm of non-
university planners.

45 UBC graduates
in Provincial election
A check of names in the September
provincial general election showed that
no fewer than forty-five UBC alumni
engaged in the fray as candidates,
probably the highest number of UBC
graduates to take part in any provincial
election. This number included three
members of the faculty. In addition,
there was one professor not on the
alumni roll and one undergraduate
offering to serve as legislators.
Nineteen alumni representing the Liberals, ten the NDP, and eight each the
Conservatives and Socreds sought to
represent the electorate in 24 ridings,
from Nanaimo & the Islands to Fernie,
from Vancouver Centre to Skeena. As
if it had been arranged by some gentleman's agreement, each of these parties
had one candidate from the faculty.
The lone undergraduate campaigner was
a Progressive-Conservative.
The successful candidates from the
alumni were: A. B. Macdonald, BA '39;
Dr. P. L. McGeer, BA '48, MD '58; The
Hon. R. W. Bonner, BA '42, LLB '48;
The Hon. L. R. Peterson, Q.C, LLB
'49; Hunter Vogel, HA '58; D. D.
Stupich, BSA '49; G. H. Dowding, LLB
'51; H. C. McKay, LLB '51; R. J.
Perrault, BA '47; A. B. Macfarlane, LLB
'49; A. J. Gargrave, LLB '61; The Hon
R. G. Williston, BA '40; D. L. Brothers,
LLB '49.
The one faculty candidate not an
alumnus of UBC (and successful, too!)
was Prof. R. R. Loffmark.
Also putting up a fight, but unrewarded with election, were many other
alumni.   In   the  Vancouver   and   Lower
Mainland area: J. J. Fedyk, Dr. H. L.
Purdy, J. K. Macey, Dr. J. Norris, H. L.
Huff, E. M. Bauder, W. R. Jack, R. E.
Lester, R. C. Bray, W. F. H. Dronsfield,
Earl J. Vance, Arthur Phillips, T. R.
Berger, G. R. B. Coultas, N. Mussallem,
A. J. Johnson.
The rest of the province was not,
perhaps, as well served by UBC graduates as the southwest corner. However,
Vancouver Island heard from R. C.
Weir, I. H. Stewart, D. P. Reimer, and
Dr. A. C. McG. Ennals. In the north
T. R. Cullinane, W. I. Donald, R. M.
Toynbee, and W. A. McClellan carried
the message of their parties to the voters.
Alumni candidates in a number of
other interior ridings, though not all,
campaigned for election. The following
names complete the list: B. O. S. Johnson, A. P. Dawe, T. W. Meagher, J. B.
Varcoe. L. T. O'Neill, A. D. C. Washington, The Hon. E. Davie Fulton, J. W.
Green.
Homecoming queen
Musa Lincke,
Musa Lincke, a fine-featured, blue-eyed
blonde has become UBC's Homecoming
Queen.
Miss Lincke, the 18 year-old Frosh
queen beat out 16 other entries to win
her title.
Miss Lincke says her major hobby is
painting, but she also enjoys fashion
modelling for some of the Vancouver
department stores.
The two Homecoming princesses are
Mary Lou Copp, Miss Medicine, and
Maxine Rogers, Miss Acadia Camp.
New school launched
by B.C. companies
In March of 1963 a number of British
Columbia companies undertook to
launch a work study school to serve the
needs not only of this province but of all
western Canada. The director is Associate Professor David C. Aird, BCom.
'52, and the school is attached to the
Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration.
Russell Currie, the foremost authority
on work study, has described it as
"essentially a relentless, analytical and
inquisitive approach to the use of manpower, materials and equipment coupled
with a desire to apply the facts from
such enquiry to improve existing
methods by the elimination of waste in
every form." A shorter definition is
"organized common sense."
The special emphasis of the B.C.
Work Study School, in addition to
general course co-ordination, will be
concentrated along four lines:
1. Courses     for     senior     work     study
analysts
2. Management  appreciation  programs
3. Special   programs   for   individual   industries and companies
4. Research.
Initial financing of the school is by
grants from local industry and contributions from the National Productivity
Council and the Economic Council of
Canada. In addition, fees from courses
will contribute about 50% of the operating costs of the school.
It is expected the major emphasis of
the school will be the training and retraining  of senior  work  study  analysts.

21 year-old student
in Provincial election
A UBC student was one of the youngest persons running in the past provincial  election.
Chris Thompson, who turned 21 in
September, was Progressive-Conservative
candidate in Burrard.
One of his first moves served to
alienate him almost completely from
student support. He proposed that students pay a "tax" of $100 a year for the
four years following graduation, thus
helping alleviate the problem of university  financing.
He was immediately taken to task by
Mike Hunter, editor of The Ubyssey.
"Well, we should have known better
than to support a kid who suddenly
decides to turn politician . . . The first
thing Thompson does when he turns 21
is turn politician. Then his first campaign promise is to boost UBC fees $100
a year with a subtle plot he calls a
graduation tax.
"Just to prove he's a politician, he
graduates this year and he won't be
around to have to pay the tax ..."
Hunter has his own suggestion as to
how Mr. Thompson could help the
university out of financial difficulty.
". . . We need you here, paying your
fees, more than we need you in Victoria."
Thompson did not get elected.
Past alumni president
slams student rowdyism
A past president of the Alumni Association has attacked student rowdyism
at the Homecoming football game.
Fred Bolton, who headed the Alumni
in 1940, said the university cannot
afford the type of publicity such actions
engender. "After seeing the drunken
stupidity at the game many grads are
going to have second thoughts about
giving money to such a place," Bolton
said.
"I'm not complaining about the goal
posts being torn down; it's the drunken
stupidity that interfered with the game
that annoyed me and several others sitting near me.
"It seems strange to me that once
things got to the point where students
began to disrupt the game and wander
on to the field no one did anything to
stop them.
"If students can't govern themselves,
the administration should take the power
away," Bolton said.
He said he was going to write the
university president and the athletic
office concerning the game.
The game itself was almost incidental,
at least as far as quite a few students
were concerned.
In a melee after the game, almost 100
students were involved in attempts to
tear down the goal posts protected by an
equal number of engineers, hired, for a
couple of cases of beer, by the Men's
Athletic Association.

Grad group formed
to advance Ag-science
A group OF persons interested in agriculture and in the advancement of
agricultural science has been formed,
under the name of 'Friends of Agriculture.'
The idea was initially put forth by
Sigma Tau Upsilon Honorary Agricultural Fraternity, and was sparked by
George Reifel, BSA '44, and now president of the 'Friends.'
Prime objectives are to provide a
unified voice dedicated to the furtherance
of agricultural science, particularly at
UBC, and to receive and direct funds,
gifts, bequests, memorials, contributions,
or donations into the most effective
channels at the University.
Friends of Agriculture is recognized
by the University of B.C.
Persons interested in the FOA may

UBC to get $3.5 million
student union building
Students have approved plans for the
construction of a $3.5 million student
union building.
In a survey students indicated they
wanted food services high on the list of
facilities in the first stage of the new
building. Other facilities high on the list
include a theatre, book store, ballroom,
parking facilities, small auditorium and
library, and a small private self-service
dining-room.
The facilities list proposed by the
building committee calls for six commercial firms to set up a barber shop, beauty
salon, bank, and college shop.
The list includes a 10-lane automatic
bowling alley and a 12-table billiard
room.
A reading lounge and two music
lounges   are   also  proposed.
The building design will be arrived at
through an architectural competition.

heads Simon Fraser
Appointment of Dr. Patrick Duncan
McTaggart-Cowan as president of Simon
Fraser University was announced by
Chancellor Gordon M. Shrum in October.
The new president has been Controller of the Meteorological Service of
Canada, Department of Transport, since
1959.
In 1934 Dr. McTaggart-Cowan was
elected B.C.'s Rhodes Scholar, graduating two years later from Corpus Christi,
Oxford, with honors and a BA degree in
natural sciences.
Holder of the MBE for his services
with the RAF Ferry Command, and of
the Coronation Medal, he also received
in 1959 the Robert M. Losey Award
from the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences in recognition of outstanding
contributions to the science of meteorology as applied to aeronautics.
Chronicle editor retires
With the fall edition of The Chronicle off the press, Mrs. Frances Tucker
vacated the editor's chair she had held
since 1961.
Over the past several months, there
has been a notable up-grading in the
magazine—a fact mentioned by many
people. Most of the credit for the improvement must go to our retiring editor.
Conscientious effort, hours of extra
work, skilful attention to accuracy and
detail, wide interests and experiences in
academic circles, and a happy personality
have combined to present a person of
exceptional talents.
Always, she provided a friendly and
valuable liaison between the Alumni, the
student body and the University faculty
and administration.
Her host of friends will be pleased to
know she will maintain her Chronicle
contact as a member of the Editorial
Committee.
Thank you, Frances.
Birney calls for
culture minister
Professor Earle Birney, chairman of
UBC's creative writing department, thinks
the Canadian government should give
consideration to the appointment of a
minister for cultural affairs.
Professor Birney came to this conclusion after a six-month tour of Mexico,
several South American countries and the
West Indies, a tour made under the auspices of the Canada Council which had
awarded him a senior arts fellowship. In
the course of his travels Dr. Birney gave
nearly 40 lectures and poetry readings,
conducted seminars, and was interviewed
by the press and on radio and television.
Though he found great curiosity about
Canada, particularly in the West Indies,
Dr. Birney also found a great blank
about Canadian literature and art. Canada has no cultural attaches abroad, he
points out, and as a result there are very
limited opportunities for people in these
areas to learn about Canadian intellectual and cultural life.
Following his lecture tour, Dr. Birney
travelled to Europe where he completed
a new book of poems to be published
next spring, and began work on a book
about the novelist Malcolm Lowry.

39 Nurses stage drive
3,001 give $62,112.16
Alumni Annual Giving target $100,000
Lybunts, nurses and lawyers may be
the deciding factor in bringing Alumni
Annual Giving up to its target of $100,-
000 and 4,000 donors for the year 1963.
By the time this publication reaches your
hand, the issue will have been settled,
probably by those three groups.
As of November 13th, the number of
donors this year was 3,001 and the number of dollars received was  $62,112.16.
The AAG chairman, Rod Macdonald,
explained in his November letter to the
Lybunts that a Lybunt was not a new
disease or an island in the South Pacific
—they were those people who had supported "Last Year BUt Not This." The
third-quarter AAG donor analysis indicated that 1,170 past supporters, almost
half the total, had not contributed this
year. If only 1,000 of them were added
to the 1963 total of AAG donors, the
target of 4,000 would have been reached.
Nurses are key people because they
were responsible for the 1962 eleventh
hour push to the Annual Giving fund
with their Nursing Division drive for
Nursing Scholarship funds. The Nurses
were repeating this appeal in November
and as a result, a major assist was expected from the girls in white.
The   Lawyers   are   a   more   doubtful
group, but it was hoped that something
might spark them into improving their
relative position in the AAG standings.
A table showing by faculties and
schools the percentage of graduates participating in Alumni Annual Giving for
the first three quarters of AAG in 1963,
shows the Librarians leading with 28.5%,
closely followed by Music with 25%,
Commerce, Science and Medicine almost
even in the 14% bracket, and the three
lowest rungs occupied by Education with
5.4%, Social Work 3.9%, and Law
3.4%.
Special appeal letters to groups like
the Lawyers showed them the cost the
community is presently bearing for education in their fields over and above
tuition fees. A Lawyer pays $2,226 in
tuition for three years of Arts and three
years of Law. The approximate cost of
educating the law student to-day is
$5,505. Thus the cost to the community
is $3,279 per student.
Other examples: to graduate a student
in Agriculture costs the community $13,-
056; in Applied Science, $6,955; in Arts,
$1,676; in Commerce, $3,405; in Education, $3,820; in Forestry, $4,670; in
Medicine, $19,733; in Pharmacy, $3,555.
The third quarter analysis placed 1917
as the leading class in member participation with 29.6%.
Distance still makes the heart grow
fonder, as more donations were received
from the Eastern United States graduates (25.5% of them) and from the
Maritimes and Newfoundland graduates
(19.8%) than from graduates closer to
UBC.
The needs of UBC for "free money"
—for scholarships, library, playing fields,
president's fund, etc., are all increasing.
So must the sense of responsibility of
all UBC graduates. Alumni Annual Giving can mean the difference for many
quality items at UBC.
In 1963 many UBC graduates responded to this opportunity. This, however, is but a beginning. Everyone who
has benefited from higher education must
be prepared to lend his support.

a paper published in the June 1963 issue
of the "B.C. Professional Engineer." He
has been connected with the construction
business since graduation and joined the

either added at the mixer or interground
with the cement. The concrete used in
the Roman aqueduct built along the
Rhine River some 2,000 years ago contained a cement made of volcanic poz-
zolan and a crudely burned lime. The

Such accommodation could be either
of the low rental variety particularly for
senior citizens who would enjoy the
advantage of being within walking distance of the city's heart, or town housing for business people.

Seattle annual meeting
draws 50 graduates
The annual meeting of the Seattle
Chapter of the Alumni Association was
held at the official residence of the Canadian Consul-General, Albert S. Whiteley,
and his wife. Both hosts are Class of
'28 graduates of UBC in Arts. The
gathering of about 50 former UBC students heard an address by Dr. John
Chapman, recently-appointed academic
planner at UBC, on academic planning.

president, succeeding Dan Young, BA'52,
and Robert Boroughs, BA'39, MA'43,
vice-president.
Grandmother at UBC
shows educational trend
The marriage of Professor Emeritus
A. C. Cooke to Mrs. Beatrice McColl,
reported in its appropriate column in this
issue, is yet another reminder of an interesting post-war development in education.
When Mrs. Cooke returned to teaching after the death of her first husband
some years ago, she decided that a degree
was in order. She took some courses at
Victoria College while one of her sons
was a student there, then came to UBC
where she received a BA degree in 1959
and BSW the following year. Study for
a Master's degree had to be broken off
because of illness.
"I thought," says Mrs. Cooke, "that
I would stick out like a sore thumb on
campus." Instead, she found that she had
contemporaries in every class, and, even
more gratifying, that her 'teen-age fellow-
students accepted her as one of themselves, having the same interests and
goals.
The mother on campus is no rarity—
Mrs. Cooke had six adult children when
she became an undergraduate — the
grandmother is not unique, but to the
editor's great disappointment, Beatrice
Cooke did not achieve great-grandmother
status until after she left UBC.
An undergraduate granddaughter is
now the owner of what must surely be
one of the first govrnor-general's medals,
awarded to Mrs. Cook's aunt in the
1880's.
Mrs. Cooke is continuing in her profession of social worker.
Tentating date set
for Commerce Seminar
A tentative date has been set for the
Third Annual Commerce Seminar—February 29, 1964—according to Mr. Isy
Wolfe, BCom'58, LLB'59, Seminar
Chairman.
As the past two seminars have been
very successful, the format of the all-day
Saturday programme will be basically a
repeat outline. The committee plan to
present a good variety of stimulating
subjects of specific interest to Commerce
graduates.
Further details will be mailed to
Commerce graduates. Commerce graduates can register now by writing the
Alumni Office.
First Annual Niagara District UBC Alumni Association dinner was held
October 12, 1963. The Hon. Arthur Laing, BSA'25, and Dr. William C.

Music department announces program
The more: recent the graduate, the more likely he is
to be aware of the great variety of cultural programs
offered at the university to students and general public
alike, but even he can get out of date very quickly.
The programs don't, and they get better all the time,
as illustrated by the Department of Music calendar.
There is no admission charge and the noon-hour
offerings, though intended primarily for students, are
also open to the public. Here are the second-term recitals and concerts, the dates subject to possible change.

Si Procrustes
a legendary king, had a bed into which all his guests must fit. If
too short they were put on the rack and stretched ... if too long
Procrustes cut off their legs.
Apathy to Life Assurance planning, given the unforseen, could
sunder your way of life.
When you retire it could demand Procrustean
conformity to an inadequate budget.
