Higher education is a major topic of conversation
these days. UBC's problems are even more topical.
So much is being said about UBC and events are happening so rapidly that I have had difficulty putting
together this editorial.
There is confusion apparent in many places over the
degree of the Provincial Government's support for
UBC. In an effort to clarify this year's budget situation
the Administration has prepared a statement which is
printed on the page opposite. We hope that it clears
up some of the confusion around statements made about
the request for operating and capital monies during
Possibly developments in higher education through
the province are occurring too quickly to assess. Many
alumni during the past few months have expressed concern about their "Alma Mater." They wonder if UBC
is to wither on the vine while our other, newly-created
universities forge ahead. Some alumni have mentioned
their reluctance to renew or continue financial support
of UBC because of the uncertainty surrounding the
status of the Provincial Government's capital grants
In a year when we are reassessing the role of the
Alumni Association and when we are looking at our
programme in the light of developments in higher
education, it is important to recall some of the background. Concern for UBC by the Alumni Association
has in recent years manifested itself in a number of
ways. A few years ago the Board of Management
established an ad hoc committee which did a tremendous job in publishing a report entitled "The State of
the University." Later the Board of Management formally requested a Royal Commission on higher education.
Later still the Board of Management went on record
requesting a study of the needs of higher education in
the province. It had been known for some time that
more planning was necessary at UBC but before planning could commence terms of reference had to be laid
down for a provincial plan for higher education. Dr.
Macdonald upon his arrival expeditiously set about
developing a plan for higher education in British
Columbia. Within 90 days of the publication of his
report, enabling legislation was enacted, creating three
new universities and a formula for establishment of
junior colleges.
It is now possible to focus attention on a plan for
UBC. It is to be hoped that the Board of Governors at
UBC will take the initiative and come up with a 5-year
plan spelling out the needs for our "Alma Mater." It
has been evident that a reluctance exists to publish the
yearly fiscal needs of UBC. It is also evident that by
publishing only part of the story, operating and capital
requirements can be confused and misunderstood.
A 5-year plan outlining these needs placed in context
as part of the ongoing development of UBC will enable
all constituents of the University community, and alumni
in particular, to help in the years ahead.
There was a time when alumni were accused of
running programs for their self-interest rather than for
service. This cannot be said today. Throughout North
America alumni are more serious-minded about their
responsibilities than ever before. Social activities are
given a low priority in relation to new-found responsibilities in public relations, political action and fund
raising. Alumni can play a more productive role at
UBC in all these fields.
We are anxious to help further the development at
Point Grey but before we can help constructively it is
necessary to be well-informed. Readjustment of alumni
programming in line with these new responsibilities will
demonstrate to the Board of Governors and the Administration of UBC that they can count on a large body
of support to help implement their plans, plans that
must be made as soon as possible.

it is necessary to be well-informed
the financial position of the University of British
Columbia has been the topic of much public debate in
recent months. Such debate is most encouraging since
it makes clear the deep public concern for the continued
growth of the University and it also reveals the need
for some factual information on the financial scene.
For operating funds the University of British Columbia depends upon four major sources of funds: The
Provincial Government, student fees, the Federal
Government, and miscellaneous revenues including
grants and gifts. The proportions from each in recent
years has been about 36%, 25%, 25%, and 14%,
respectively. For capital purposes the sources are the
Provincial Government, the U.B.C. Development Fund
and the Canada Council. The report which follows
deals primarily with funds from the Provincial
1963-64 Estimates
One year ago the Heads and Deans were asked by
President Macdonald to prepare estimates of the funds
necessary to maintain and improve standards and to
begin strengthening of the graduate programme of the
University. President Macdonald carefully appraised
the estimates which came to him from the Deans and
decided that an increase of $2,658,370 over the 1962-
63 operating costs would be required for 1963-64.
In order to provide the physical facilities for the
programme, the President also recommended to the
Board a request for a capital grant of $7,247,697,
excluding Education1, broken down between completion of projects in progress and commitments, new
projects, continuing projects and contingencies. The
first category included completion of construction and
provision of basic equipment for the Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Fine Arts and Physics buildings.
Important items in the second category included the
Medical Sciences Library, the Agriculture-Forestry
Building,   and   commencement   of   a   Multi-Purpose
iWhen the College of Education was established at the University of British Columbia, it was agreed that capital funds for
its building should be made available from the Provincial
Department of Education to the Department of Public Works,
which would undertake the construction. Consequently, these
funds are dealt with separately from the remainder of the
University's capital budget.
Classroom Building. The main items under continuing
commitments were the relocation of huts and the provision of services and utilities. The majority of the
funds requested was allocated to pay for construction
already under way and to commence essential new projects designed to relieve the pressure on overcrowded
At their meeting in October 1962 the Board of
Governors endorsed both the operating and capital
estimates which, in due course, were forwarded to the
Minister of Education. In order to strengthen the academic programme and reduce the staff/student ratios
it was essential that the estimates be approved by the
Provincial Government by March 1963. If approval
were delayed beyond this, it would become impossible
to implement the programme because potential new
staff of the calibre required would have completed
other contractual arrangements.
Provincial Budget 1963-64
In his Budget Speech on February 8, 1963, the
Minister of Finance reported an increase in the operating grant to the University of $1,000,000 (compared
with the requested increase of $2,658,370) and a capital grant of $3,800,000 (excluding Education) compared with the request of $7,247,697. The short fall of
$1,658,370 in the operating grant meant that the
planned programme could not be put into effect unless
a supplementary grant to make up the difference was
made available quickly. The Board of Governors
immediately requested a meeting with Premier Bennett

to discuss the matter. The Premier deferred this meeting until after July 1, when the new Universities Act
(which provided for authorization of supplementary
grants) came into effect. Whatever the outcome of this
meeting, by July it would be too late to implement
the programme provided for in the estimates.
Preparation of a Revised University Budget:
A Stop-Gap Programme
Faced with this situation, the Board of Governors
requested the preparation of an emergency budget. The
Board agreed with the President that top priority be
given to (1) the Library, (2) providing staff and
equipment to meet the needs of the anticipated increase
in enrolment, (3) promotions and salary increases
for the existing staff, (4) the Computing Centre, and
(5) sustaining some growth in Graduate Studies. Economies were achieved by arbitrarily reducing the
buildings and grounds budget, even though new
buildings had to be serviced. All reserve and surplus
funds amounting to over $400,000 were applied to
meet the emergency situation. These were derived from
reserves of the Faculty of Education, a reduced heating
bill attributable to the mild winter, and a refund from
the Teachers' Insurance and Annuity Programme. The
use of such non-recurring funds to meet continuing
costs means that the University will need increased
revenues in 1964-65 to support the present level of
The emergency budget was supplemented by
$370,074 on July 15th at a meeting of the Premier
and Minister of Education with members of the
Finance Committee of the Board of Governors and
Acting President Chant. This supplement permits the
University to proceed with proposals which could still
be undertaken at the very late point in the fiscal year.
The supplement provided for a few new members of
Faculty, additional equipment and supplies for teaching
and research, restoration of the original estimates for
the Computing Centre and salary scale adjustments for
non-teaching staff.
Within the restricted framework imposed, this
budget can allow the University to do little more than
maintain the status quo. It is impossible to undertake
important curricular changes, new programmes have
been deferred (e.g. Bachelor of Fine Arts) or delayed
(e.g. Dentistry), the development of Graduate Studies
has been restricted, and, most important of all, the
opportunity to appoint the high quality staff so necessary to lead the academic development of this University has been lost for another year. It became necessary
for the University to adopt a short-term interim position
rather than commence on a longer term, constructive
At the meeting on July 15th the members of the
Board of Governors emphasized that the failure of the
Government to meet the request for Capital Grant by
approximately $3.5 million would again defer the
development of the physical plant required for academic
objectives, to relieve serious crowding, and to replace
wartime huts. No increase in capital funds could be
secured, although it was agreed that $300,000 of the
$1.2 million provided for the Education Building would
be made available to the University to permit a start
on the Multi-Purpose Classroom Building. It should be
noted that of the total Capital Grant of $4,100,000,
$1,000,000 is regarded as the annual grant and
$3,100,000 as a matching grant, bringing the total
payments of the latter to $7,500,000 against an
eventual estimated total of $10,000,000.

perhaps the most important aspect of the University's present financial difficulties is the effect they are
likely to have on the University's ability to meet and
surmount the great crisis in its fortunes to be presented
in the next six years. There is not only the huge
increase in University enrolment but the equally pressing demand for more complex and sophisticated training in this age of scientific production and mass
urbanization. If we are to surmount this crisis and
secure the adequate education of our community in
the last crowded and strenuous years of the century,
every member of the University—administrator, alumnus, and faculty member—will have to strive his best
to inform and educate the people of the Province in
the facts of higher education as they are developing
in this decade.
A good deal has been said about the crude cost of
realizing the goals of the Macdonald Report. Perhaps
not enough has been said about the raising and changing the level of instruction, of the ways in which this
will be done, and of the sort of community this will
This autumn the Faculty Association, with the cooperation of the University administration and the
Alumni Association, propose to undertake a campaign
of education and information among the public, dealing
specifically with these questions. The campaign will
be conducted through lectures, the press, radio and
television, public information panels, and meetings with
business groups and M.L.A.'s. In order that this campaign will be an informed one, the Association will
work in the closest co-operation with the University
administration in its task of preparing a detailed study
of future planned expansion of the faculties, departments and other subdivisions of the University. Particular  attention  is  to  be  paid  to  the  development  of
graduate work, upon which depends the future
advancement of knowledge, and the training of future
university teachers. The most significant thing about
recent highly-publicized resignations of Faculty members was that they almost all involved Americans. The
American universities are calling their people home to
help meet their own coming crisis. Soon we will be on
our own—or at least we will have to be giving to the
pool of university talent in order to take from it. This
means a major graduate school in the Province.
The Faculty Association also hopes to see undertaken
competent studies of the sort of community this Province is likely to be in fifteen, in twenty-five, in forty
years' time. It will certainly be a much larger and more
crowded one—two million people by the end of the
decade, four and half million by the end of the century.
The shaping and direction of this community will be
largely in the hands of people trained by the University.
We have a very heavy responsibility to see that the
University is first-class.
What do the Faculty ask of the Alumni? First, a
sympathetic understanding of the need to expand the
University from the good undergraduate college
familiar to them, to the great University it must be, if
the Province is not to become an intellectual and
technological backwater. Second, forceful advocacy of
this development in the Province. Eighty per cent of
the graduates of the University are still living in the
Province (surely a sufficient answer to the charge that
we merely train people for the benefit of other communities). If all these graduates carry the message of
higher education to the public, the future of the
Province is safe.

What Will The Students of UBC do in the face of
the seeming futility of their effort of last spring? This
question often comes to the mind of those concerned
with the present plight of the University. Will they be
apathetic? Will they resort to irresponsible demonstrations out of a sense of frustration and dismay?
Neither is likely. Rather, the students will react with
a renewed effort to achieve their original goal—the
advancement of the cause of higher education in British
Why? Because many of us do not regard last year's
campaign as a failure! It was merely the beginning of
a long-term concerted drive to gain the support of the
whole province. If those dealing with the university's
problems had been more courageous in their follow-
through these gains would have been greater. Even
despite this handicap the gains made have been significant. We sought public support and we found it. We
found it in even greater abundance than we had expected. The University gained a further grant from
the Provincial Government; a pittance, but at least an
admission of the inadequacy of the original sums.
What course of action will the students follow now?
They will expand the effort to educate the public to
the value of the University. The urgency of its needs
will be put forward in a forceful and responsible manner.
They will seek to co-ordinate the efforts of the many
public-spirited groups that support higher education.
They will seek to assist others who want to see this
Province develop the excellent universities that will
guarantee its future.
They will press for the creation of a united front
composed of all the Province's universities, alumni
associations and student bodies. A united front such
as this will see the achievement of advances in higher
education unparalleled in our present experience.
These are not glamorous tasks; but they will be
undertaken. They will not involve the same numbers of
students as last spring's campaign. They will be undertaken by a smaller group with a sense of dedication and
in a responsible manner. In this way the support that
has been gained will not be lost.
The great mass of the student body will not, however,
be idle. Thousands of students will be involved in the
preparation and carrying out of the University's triennial Open House to be held in March of 1964. It will
be on a scale never before contemplated and it is
hoped that over two hundred thousand people will be
brought to the Point Grey campus alone. The theme is
significant. It is "The University, a partner in your
community's progress." It will be a further contribution
to the development of public support for higher education.
As a result of our previous efforts it has been brought
home to us that while there are many that support us
there are many that oppose us or are indifferent to the
needs of higher education. We shall attempt to convince
the doubters and to enlist the support of the uninformed.
This goal is a difficult one to achieve and we do not
underestimate the effort that will be required. The
urgency of the problem, however, does not permit us
to debate the chance of success. We must carry on confident that our efforts are in a good cause.

Dean G. Neil Perry has been appointed
to the post of vice-president of the University of British Columbia by the Board
of Governors, President John B. Macdonald announced in June.
President Macdonald said Dean Perry
would assist and advise him in all areas
of University administration and academic work. He will also continue to

Multiple Sclerosis
research aimed at unravelling the mysteries of the crippling disease multiple
sclerosis has begun at the University of
British Columbia.
Dr. Thomas L. Perry, an associate
professor in the department of pharmacology, has received a grant of $12,500
from the Multiple Sclerosis Society of
Canada to test a theory that the disease
is related to abnormal concentrations of
one or more trace metals in the human
Scientists have already shown that
high concentrations of several trace
metals in the brain can cause mental
deficiency and other neurological diseases. Dr. Perry says.
He cites as an instance a complaint
known as Wilson's disease, which produces loss of intelligence and certain
physical symptoms as a result of an
excessive concentration of copper in
certain  areas of the brain  and liver.
A disease of sheep which closely
resembles multiple sclerosis has reinforced the trace metal theory. Dr. Perry
says. The disease, known as "swayback,"
shows up in lambs born to ewes which
have grazed on vegetation containing
large amount of molybdenum and low
concentrations of copper.
Studies of the frequency with which
multiple sclerosis occurs in various parts
of the world have suggested the possibility that the disease may be associated
with variations in the trace metal content of the soil.
To test the theory Dr.  Perry and his
assistants plan to analyse urine samples
from multiple sclerosis sufferers and
non-sufferers in the same household.
Each of the samples will be tested to
determine the concentrations of the 14
trace elements found in the human body.
Six of these elements — copper, iron,
cobalt, zinc, manganese, and molybdenum— are essential to humans, Dr.
Perry says, because they are components
of enzymes which control body functions.
The remaining eight metals are not
thought to be necessary, but some are
known to have toxic effects if they are
present in excess quantities, he says.
Carrying the theory one step further,
Dr. Perry speculates that multiple sclerosis sufferers may possess some inherent
genetic defect which prevents them from
eliminating one of the metals.
Dr. Perry also plans to analyse brain
and other tissues obtained by autopsy
from MS sufferers to determine concentrations of metals.
Dr. Perry says his research will have
value even if it is found that concentrations of metals in the human body are
unrelated to multiple sclerosis since the
direction of future research is often
aided by the elimination of one or another possible avenues of research which
need to be explored.
Dr. Perry is also doing research supported by the Medical Research Council
of Canada which is aimed at discovering
if there is a relationship between mental
illness and other biochemical processes
in the human body.
Construction has started on new residence development at corner of Marine Drive
and Agronomy Road opposite Totem Park. Four six-storey residence blocks with a
common block for dining and recreation wilt house 790 men and women students.

a Research Technique
A team of medical researchers at the
University of British Columbia have
pioneered a research technique which
one day may shed light on some of the
mysterious functions of the human brain.
The team, headed by Dr. Hugh McLennan, associate professor of physiology, has been experimenting with radio
stimulated cats in an effort to solve
some of the mysteries of the basal
ganglia, nerve centre located deep in the
brain of man as well as lower animals.
Fine wires have been implanted in those
areas of the basal ganglia known as the
caudate nuclei. These, in turn, are connected to tiny transistorized radio
receivers   attached   to   the   cats'   skulls.
The receivers pick up radio pulses
from a transmitter and feed them into
the caudate nuclei via the implanted
wires. The receivers, designed by fourth
year medical student Paul Plummer,
weigh only half an ounce and are
powered by batteries smaller than vitamin pills.
Depending upon the number of pulses
introduced into the cat's brain, the
animal can be made to halt in mid-stride,
turn to right or left, or turn in a tight
circle as if trying to catch up with
something just outside its range of
Just what all this indicates is still
obscure, Dr. McLennan says, and years
of work and further experimentation
will be necessary before a clear picture
"Obviously we have imposed on the
animal a fairly complex type of behaviour," he says. But its meaning is "open
to several interpretations."
Current experiments are designed to
learn whether stimulation of any of the
basal ganglia can affect the cat's ability
to learn. "But so far," Dr. McLennan
says, "we haven't been very successful
at teaching a cat anything it didn't want
to learn."
Dr. McLennan explains that he began
the work a year ago as the result of the
frustration of trying to teach medical
students the normal function of these
parts of the brain, about which remarkably little is known.
"There's a great blank in the textbooks when it comes to the basal ganglia," he says.
It is known that degeneration of some
of the basal ganglia can cause such
disorders as Parkinson's disease, the
shaking palsy of old age, and other
disorders of movement.
Dr. McLennan, with associates Dr.
Patricia Emmons, Dr. Bill Holt and Paul
Plummer, set out to fill some of the gaps
in the text books.
Dr. McLennan hopes soon to extend
his experiments to monkeys, whose
brains are more like man's than is the
io Metallurgy
research desioned to throw light on a
baffling problem in the field of metallurgy is underway at the University of
British Columbia.
Dr. Edward Teghtsoonian, an associate professor in the UBC department
of metallurgy, has received a $3000
grant from the Research Corporation,
an American foundation, to initiate basic
research on the embrittlement of certain
Scientists have long puzzled over the
reason why certain solid metals, when
immersed in certain other liquid metals,
undergo a drastic change of character
to a point where they become brittle
and snap under stress.
The commonest examples of the
phenomenon. Dr. Teghtsoonian says, are
the immersion of brass or tin in liquid
To put the problem another way, Dr.
Teghtsoonian explains, brass and tin lose
the property of ductility when immersed
in mercury.
Both in manufacturing processes and
in structural applications, metals have to
possess the property of ductility, he said.
It is the property of ductility which
allows   metals   to   be   shaped   into   useful
components. Moreover, under conditions
of excess load, he said, designers base
their calculations on the premise that
the metal will bend rather than fracture.
The reasons for the drastic change
which takes place in solid brass or tin
when immersed in liquid mercury are
not at all clear,  Dr. Teghtsoonian  says.
The theory which the UBC researchers
are working on is that embrittlement
results from imperfections in the crystal
structure of the solid metal.
Dr. Teghtsoonian will try to explain
the phenomenon with the use of tin
crystals of known imperfection content,
which it is possible to grow artificially
in the laboratory.
These crystals will be immersed in
mercury and then subjected to stress. If
the imperfections are the cause of the
embrittlement the behaviour of the metal
under stress should be predictable.
While this kind of embrittlement is
not an everyday hazard, says Dr. Teghtsoonian, the results of his work may be
of value to other scientists concerned
with cooling problems in atomic reactors
and space travel.
Atomic reactors generate enormous
heat which must be transferred by some
medium before it can be put to use. In
the case of space vehicles the heat
generated during reentry into the earth's
atmosphere has to be dissipated or the
spacecraft will burn up.
Liquid metals have been proposed as
one of the methods for transferring this
heat, Dr. Teghtsoonian explains, and
these liquids will have to be in contact
with a containing vessel.
As a result, designers will need assurances that no liquid metal embrittlement
will take place.

11 The New Freddy Wood Theatre
As told
to the Chronicle staff
by Dorothy Somerset
History repeated itself on September 19, 1963,
when President emeritus N. A. M. MacKenzie, with
the assistance of Professor emeritus F. G. C. Wood,
opened the second unit of the University's Centre for
the Fine Arts, a new Frederic Wood Theatre. Less than
a dozen years before, Dr. MacKenzie had officiated at
a similar ceremony for the opening of the "old" Freddy
Why a new theatre? Why a Freddy Wood Theatre?
(For a Freddy Wood Theatre is a special concept.)
It started as a concept of a place, a place at the
University dedicated to the study and performance of
Theatre. It was to be a place in which theatre was
recognized as one of the great arts, having ancient roots
in religion and society. It was to be a place in which
live actors could bring to audiences the works of writers
who choose the dramatic form in which to make their
comment on man and life. As a University theatre, it
was to be a place where students might learn to appreciate and practise the art of theatre.
The concept became an actuality when the Totem
Canteen—two army huts joined together—was closed
down. The Board of Governors turned it over, with their
blessing and a small grant, for conversion into a theatre.
The Alumni Association, friends of the University and
the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation contributed
additional funds. There was room for 123 seats; ten of
them were floor cushions. It was officially opened as a
theatre in December of 1952.
There was only one possible name for the new
theatre, that of Professor F. G. C. Wood. It was he who
had founded the Players' Club in 1915, he who had
introduced live theatre to the University, and he who,
in succeeding years, inspired countless numbers of
students with an abiding love of theatre. His early work
is the foundation of all later developments in theatre
on the UBC campus. So, the Frederic Wood Theatre
it became, more familiarly known as the "Freddy
Wood," and the name now passes to the new theatre.
But why a new Frederic Wood Theatre? Simply because the old one had done its work too well and could
no longer contain or adequately serve the programme
for which the University's department of theatre is responsible. This demanding programme includes: a curriculum of courses leading to a major or honours in
Theatre; at least one major student production a year;
the Frederick Wood Theatre semi-professional programme which presents four plays each season; and
cooperation with the Department of University Extension in the conduct of the Summer School of the
The University of British Columbia has the reputation of offering the outstanding programme of university studies in theatre in Canada. Learning to overcome
the usual — in Canada — inadequate staging facilities
continues to be a necessary part of a theatre education,
but also essential in 1963 is an acquaintance with
the best of modern theatre production facilities. And
in a teaching theatre there must be adequate provision
for class rooms, rehearsal rooms and working space.
Finally, since the Department's overall programme
is intended to be educational in the fullest sense of the
term, there is the responsibility to strive for the highest
standards of performance. We have a reputation to
live up to—witness this tribute paid the "old" Freddy
Wood Theatre in Saturday Night of June, 1962: "A
tiny theatre on the campus of the University of British
Columbia continues to provide our best and most
stimulating theatrical experiences."
The walls of the small theatre bulged! During the
winter session it was solidly booked each day for lectures, "lab" periods, rehearsals and performances from
8.30 a.m. to well on into the night, and scattered huts
all over the campus had to be requisitioned for auxiliary
The need for a new theatre was clear, but it seemed

that only a miracle could create it at UBC. Then the
miracle came to pass when the Canada Council gave
the University a grant towards the building of a Centre
for the Fine Arts on the campus, the University providing the additional necessary funds. The Lasserre Building, for fine arts and architecture, was the first unit in
the Centre, the new Frederick Wood Theatre is the
Again the Alumni Association and the Leon and
Thea Koerner Foundation took a practical interest in
the University theatre. Together with the Players' Club
Alumni, they made generous contributions towards the
purchase of equipment for the new theatre.
Now the University has a beautiful and efficient 411-
seat theatre, of which it may well be proud. Except for
the old theatre, henceforth to be known as the Studio,
and the scenery workshop, it will house under one roof
everything to do with the Department of Theatre's programme of teaching and production.
The University, believing in theatre as an art and as
one of the humanities and wishing to encourage the
development of the Frederic Wood Theatre programme,
has established a Frederic Wood Theatre Foundation
which will provide a continuing annual income to be
directed toward the theatre's programme of play production. A University gxant, contributions from former
Players' Club members and from friends of the "old
Freddy Wood" have brought the Foundation to
$40,668.   Its eventual goal is $100,000.
The beloved old theatre will not die. As a studio it
will still be used for certain classes and rehearsals as
well as for small experimental productions. The nostalgic ghosts of characters in the more than sixty plays
presented there since 1952 will continue happily to
haunt it, knowing that it remains a dedicated place.
They will undoubtedly watch developments in the new
theatre with a jealous eye.
Will the new theatre live up to the traditions of the
old? It is a worthy mark to shoot at. Lovers of the
theatre can hope for nothing better for the new Freddy
Wood Theatre than that history will repeat itself in
more than its inauguration and that it will win the
same affection and loyalty from students and audiences
as did its tiny predecessor.
13 Man
Two Worlds
He hasn't really
from either of them
by Cecil Hacker, BA'33
Ardis Jennifer Root of Cranbrook with grandfather
"Every senior business man is a teacher. Unless he
grows into a good teacher he will not become the
effective business leader he should be."
Many people have called Earle Douglas MacPhee,
retiring Dean of Administrative and Financial Affairs,
a man of two lives. This is a distinction he does not
make himself, despite his years in both academic and
business life.
"I am interested in teaching undergraduates, and
also in teaching the business community," Dean MacPhee says. "A senior business man trains people to do
things. He must search for new techniques and train
others to use them."
Transition from university to business life is an easy
one if approached from this point of view. Business
goals are short range, those of the academic world of
longer range.
When he left the academic world in 1929 to go into
business as comptroller of York Knitting Mills, Earle
MacPhee admits he "was apprehensive of the ethics of
business." He decided to try it for one year, and for
insurance had a post at the University of Iowa to which
he could have gone if necessary.
"But I found as high an ethic in business as in university life," he says. "This seemed very important to
a Maritime Baptist."
Earle MacPhee's story of mixing academics with
business got its start in a country schoolhouse near
Lower Millstream, New Brunswick. As a young man,
he was principal of high schools at Salisbury and Sackville, before going overseas in 1914 with the 85th Nova
Scotia Highlanders. He became a company sergeant-
major, and in 1917 in France met and formed a lifelong friendship with another young Maritimes sergeant.
This was Norman (Larry) MacKenzie, the president
under whom MacPhee was to serve so many years later
at the University of British Columbia.
Following World War I, MacPhee earned degrees
in arts and education at the University of Edinburgh.
He taught psychology at Alberta, Acadia and University of Toronto, where he was particularly interested
in clinical psychology and mental health projects.
14 Associates of these days included S. N. F. Chant,
later U.B.C.'s Dean of Arts and Science, and a young
professor named Lester B. Pearson.
University salaries were "pitiful" in those days, Dean
MacPhee recalls. "I had to teach somewhere every
summer to keep the family eating."
His jump from academics to business in 1929 was
considered by some of his colleagues "a bit of bad
form. A professor was supposed to be a dedicated
person in an ivory tower."
Business career of Dean MacPhee was made possible
by his association, in social enterprises in the mental
health field, with Sir James Woods. Chairman of the
Imperial Bank and a noted industrialist, Sir James
started the young professor out in the business world
by setting him to manage a textile factory.
"I had to find out how to run a knitting mill," Dean
MacPhee recalls with a smile, "and I had to find out
York Mills developed rapidly, buying up bankrupt
enterprises and getting them on a paying basis by
applying a shrewd blend of improved operating techniques and tighter management.
MacPhee gathered together a group of University of
Toronto grads he had known as students, and established a consulting organization in 1933. Originally J.
D. Woods Company, the firm became Woods-Gordon
in 1940 when Walter Gordon, Canada's present Minister of Finance, acquired an interest in it.
His business interests extended to Europe in the
thirties, first with the establishment of a consulting
firm in London in 1934 and later a move to England
"for the whole eight of us." Possibility of education
and travel benefits for the family loomed large in the
decision of Earle MacPhee to become managing director of Dent-Allcroft and Company in 1937. Largest
glove manufacturers in the world, the firm had
branches in the United States, Belgium, France, Italy
and Australia.
When World War II broke out, British business was
caught up in the war effort, and Earle MacPhee had a
hand in war production at many levels of industry. By
1948 he was associated with the management of no
less than 10 British companies.
The move back to Canada was for family reasons,
and in 1950 "home we came." Following year "Sperrin
Chant suggested a return to academics, and that is how
we came to U.B.C."
Earle MacPhee put his stamp on the new faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration, which he
headed until 1961. Expansion of both faculty and
university led to his appointment in that year as full-
time Dean of Administrative and Financial Affairs.
Close contact with the business community has been
a characteristic of the MacPhee years at U.B.C. "The
university should take an active part in training people
for business management," Dean MacPhee says, and
he encouraged establishment of evening classes in such
fields as accounting, sales, personnel, production and
"The business community was waiting for just such
a link with the university. Our diploma programme,
started for a hundred people, now has more than 2,500
taking part."
What Dean MacPhee calls a "final rounding out" of
a business training programme came with the establishment of the Banff School of Advanced Management
which he helped to found.
In this sphere of drawing business and university
leadership together, Dean MacPhee foresees a medium
through which may come a re-examination of major
Canadian business policies. This country is "on the
outside" of many of the trade groupings of European
"What are we doing with Canada? A searching
examination by business leaders, with the university
serving as a catalyst to stimulate this, is urgently
needed," Dean MacPhee says.
Higher education is now a necessity for a greater
proportion of society than ever before. It has become
big business, and it is going to call for a greater share
of Canada's national income to pay for it.
"Britain is actually paying young people to go to
university. Approximately half her university students
are assisted. That trend will be intensified here."
In retirement, Earle MacPhee does not envision
much real change in his way of life. "I hope to teach
a little, do a little in the business world, and chase my

When we left Vancouver in 1961 to spend a year
in Malaya, our Canadian friends said openly to us,
"Anywhere but there." We knew they were thinking of
grass huts, terrorists and a diet of rice. But the Emergency officially ended in 1960 and only a few terrorists
now remain on the northern border with Thailand; our
house in Kuala Lumpur was new, cool and modern; if
we ate rice, it was only because we preferred it to
The diversity of university staff was one of the most
interesting features of our life in Malaya. They came
from India, Pakistan, Hong Kong, England, Australia,
New Zealand and Holland, as well as Malaya. In the
Department of Economics, to which we were attached,
we were the only Canadian family—in fact, the only
non-Oriental family. This was a great advantage in
integrating us into the life of the University of Malaya
and I was fortunate to be the friend of the beautiful
Asian wives of the staff.
Towards the end of our stay, Canada received a very
nice tribute. Because the university is much smaller
than U.B.C; because the Department of Business
Administration is concerned with a small number of
students, and because the university provides housing
for its faculty near the campus, we had been included
in many student activities, expeditions, parties, and
Economic Society meetings. Ungku Aziz, head of the
Department of Economics, said publicly, before we left
Malaya, that a rapport had been established between
faculty and students such as every professor hopes for
but seldom achieves, and he attributed it entirely to the
presence of the Canadians in his department.
Language had been no difficulty. English is still the
lingua franca, despite the Government's efforts to make
Malay the national language, and secondary and university education is conducted in English.
For a brief period, it looked as if we would not be
so lucky in our domestic arrangements. Engaging our
amah, Ah Lai, was handled thus: I spoke to Ungku
Aziz' fourteen-year-old daughter, Zeti, in English; she
translated  my query into Malay for her amah who
passed it on to Ah Lai in Cantonese; and the answer
came back in reverse order! Actually, Ah Lai had
merely been diffident and could speak a reasonable
amount of English.
Ah Lai simplified daily life for us. She cleaned
house, made beds, washed and ironed for the five of
us every day, and cooked all our meals. She had one
day off each week, leaving after doing the breakfast
dishes, the day's wash, and tidying the house. For this,
she received $ 150M per month and ate the same food
we did. We considered her well worth it.
What did we eat? Basically, the same foods as in
Canada, with more poultry and fruit and less beef.
Local killed meats cannot be hung and so the meat is
not very tender. When we went visiting, we ate heartily
of whatever was served, whether we liked it or not.
What did we wear? Mainly cotton or silk dresses,
for the women; short-sleeved cotton shirts and tropical
weight pants for the men. Like all other children in
Malaya, our girls wore uniform to school, green and
white gingham dresses or white blouses with gingham
skirts. Schoolboys wear shorts and cotton shirts.
The climate was our enemy. The temperatures between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. ranged from 90° - 95°. With
the heat and high humidity, we didn't have the energy
to accomplish the same amount as we do here in
Canada. In the mornings, I read and sewed. After
lunch, when the girls were out of school, we went
swimming, shopping, or to the libraries. As the men
had an air-conditioned office and lecture rooms on the
campus, they worked right through the day.
With each ethnic group celebrating different festivals,
and the university observing them all, we had an
abundance of holidays—Sultan's birthday, Hari Raya,
Chinese New Year, Deepavalli, Thaipusam and Christmas. We were invited to join the different lecturers'
households as each festival came along, and we in turn
naturally invited our Eastern friends to share our
turkey and Christmas cake.
All in all, it was a very happy and interesting year,
and we would be glad to repeat it.
16 Report on Project
headed by
Dr. Leslie G. J. Wong
Commerce Faculty in Malaya
The Ivory Tower is tumbling down. The University,
one-time haven for scholars, far from the distractions
of the madding crowd, has been breached by the Brave
New World.
Cries for help with their educational needs, on the
part of the emerging nations, have reacted like the trumpets before Jericho, causing the walls of the ivory tower
to give way and send scholars from the universities
pouring forth to the far corners of the world.
Five years ago, the University of B.C. heeded a cry
from Malaya. Following a feasibility study started in
1958 by Dr. Leslie G. J. Wong of UBC's Department
of Commerce, courses have now been introduced in
accounting and business administration at the Universities of Singapore and Malaya. The project backed by
Hon. Howard Green, then Minister of External Affairs,
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie and Dr. E. D. MacPhee, is
a five-year contract with the Government of Canada's
Colombo Plan.
At full speed ahead, the three universities and their
three governments, Canada, Malaya and Singapore, in
an excellent demonstration of goodwill and cooperation, approved and implemented in full, in May of
1961, a report that had been submitted only four
months earlier.
UBC is the first university in Canada to contract
with the Canadian government to provide staff and to
administer the financial arrangements for library, travel
and other related functions for university courses
abroad. In Dr. Wong's view, this type of institution-to-
institution agreement is superior in many respects to
the standard Colombo Plan arrangement.
The Malayan project embraces two parallel streams
of courses in the two university departments of economics for honors students opting specialization in
business administration. Each stream consists of
business economics in the first year; two accounting
courses, marketing, industrial organization and management in the second year; two accounting courses,
commercial law and financial management in the final

Federation and Singapore for four months, returning to
the University of B.C. in time for the fall sessions.
Two Separate Institutions
On January 1, 1962, two separate universities were
formed, the University of Malaya and the University
of Singapore.
In May, 1962, the start of the academic year, Assistant Professor Harvey Babiak began his tour of duty at
the University of Malaya and Associate Professor C. L.
Mitchell at the University of Singapore. They phased
into the work of Professors Beedle and McDonald who
returned to UBC in September, 1962.
Dr. Hall was assigned to the University of Singapore
for the first term and then to the University of Malaya
where he completed his tour by May, 1963. Dr. Wong
started his 16-month tour at the University of Malaya
in May of '62 and moved to the University of Singapore
in September of that year. As the co-ordinator, Dr.
Wong travels frequently between the two institutions
which are about 200 air miles apart.
Since May, '63 Dr. William Hughes and Dr. G.
David Quirin have started their series of lectures and
tutorials at Singapore and Kuala Lumpur respectively,
and switch positions in August this year. The overlapping of staff from Canada was designed to give both
streams of courses cohesive continuity.
For the 1963-64 academic year, 398 students are
enrolled in the first course and over 150 registered in
one or more of the other accounting and business
administration courses. At University of Malaya, the
response of the students to opt for business administration has exceeded the original projection. At University
of Singapore steps have already been taken to create a
separate chair in accounting and business administration, which is recognition by the academic community
of the acceptance and importance of these courses.
An integral part of this project is the selection of
Malaysian scholars for graduate studies in Canada so
they may take over from UBC's teaching staff this year.
However, only the University of Malaya was successful
in selecting a qualified accountant with a university
degree for further graduate studies. This instructor completed his graduate studies at UBC and has joined U. of

Malaya's faculty as planned. Professor Harvey Babiak
will serve a second tour as visiting professor of accounting at University of Singapore on completion of his
work at University of Malaya this August. Four other
scholars are in their final year in the Faculty of
Graduate Studies at UBC and will be joined shortly by
at least three more. They are financed under the
Canadian Colombo Scholarship scheme.
Course for Businessmen
The most significant impact of the project occurred
in March, 1963, when Professors Mitchell, Babiak and
Wong coordinated a residential advanced management
course under the auspices of the Economic Development Board of Singapore and the two universities. The
course was the first of its kind for executives in Malaysia.
The course, of two weeks' duration, was formulated
to meet the demands of business enterprises in developing executives for roles of greater responsibility. Its
aim was the introduction of new techniques and concepts of organization and management, sociological
essentials of human relations, and special problems confronting business in Malaysia.
Eighty participants from the Federation of Malaya,
Singapore, Borneo and Sarawak were selected from
over 130 applications. These men represented a cross
section from management, trade unions and senior
government positions. They spent two weeks in intensive study and discussion. As the three faculty members
from UBC could not hope to cope with the entire teaching load, seven business executives from industry were
seconded to assist, including Mr. Donald Vicary, a
Canadian from Ford Motor Company of Malaya.
At the conclusion of the course, a symposium was
held on "The Role of Management in Industrialization" with special reference to Malaya. Papers were
presented by the Minister of Finance of Singapore, the
Governor of the Central Bank of Malaya, the managing
director of the Ford Motor Company of Malaya Ltd.,
Mr. Gordon Withell who is also a Canadian, and two
experts from the United Nations. At a banquet attended
by 250 guests, the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor of
the University of Singapore and the Vice-Chancellor of
the University of Malaya presented certificates to the
80 businessmen.
Besides serving as a useful demonstration of the
enlarging body of knowledge in the field of business
administration, this advanced management course
gained favorable publicity for the Canadian Colombo
In concluding his report on UBC in Malaysia, Dr.
Wong states: "Industrialization in an emerging nation
like Malaysia is a complicated process that requires
much more than the establishment of a few enterprises
adopting modern techniques of production. To be purposeful, industrialization must be accompanied by new
attitudes towards the scale of social values that promotes enterprise and innovation and encourages expansion and growth. To this extent, members of the
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration at
the University of British Columbia are making their
modest contribution to the Federation of Malaysia."

HOMECOMING is an opportunity organized by the Alumni Association for graduates and former students to renew their University ties. Through this yearly association it aims to create general
interest and support for the Alumni Association and for the University.
BILL rodgers
7962 and 1963 Homecoming Chairman
HOMECOMING is a reunion: a re-creation of past associations with contemporaries, with old
masters, with once familiar surroundings. As such, the best Homecoming is found in free association. For who can programme the past?
Homecoming is a rebirth: a stimulation from current experiences of contemporaries, of new
thought, of a developing environment. Such a Homecoming depends on a programme to ensure
the presentation of the changing panorama, and is developed in continuing education or the
Alumni College.
The Alumni programme of recent years has some of each type of Homecoming. It has the
social attraction of the reunion and still it has found stimulation from new topics at panel discussions, and now campus development. The formal portions of the programme are interwoven
with the free social periods so that a graduate can attend a function of his choice and find sufficient time before or after to renew old friendships. In this way Homecoming achieves a purpose
in providing a pleasant and satisfying experience to all graduates attending.
796/ Homecoming Chairman
In the ten years from the birth of UBC at Fairview in 1915 until the
move to Point Grey in 1925 there was little cause for any annual programme
of reuniting graduates such as we know today. A youthful Alumni Society
organized in 1917 held functions at one to two-month intervals throughout
this period, with such varied activities as dances, bridge tournaments, Curtain Club plays, meetings to promote election of members to Senate, and
luncheons with prominent speakers. An Athletic Club fielded teams in
rugby and basketball and promoted tennis for Alumni members. The 1921-
22 season saw the establishment of the Leroy Scholarship Fund and an
Employment Bureau for students.
In 1923, the Alumni executive began to show their age by exhorting the
grads to get active in the community and not be "hangers-on." The first
fruitful steps to work with the Alma Mater Society on activities at Point
Grey began in 1924 when the Ceilidh raised $1230 towards the gymnasium
and playing fields funds. The spring of 1925 saw the first reunions with the
women graduates forming a hen party at the Grosvenor Hotel and the gay
blades living it up at the old University Club.
It was not until November 1926 that the first Homecoming was held.
This was a four-day pageant, excellent but not unnaturally reflecting a predominance of student effort and appreciation. Homecoming continued to
be a student-staged affair and the Alumni simply allowed themselves to be
entertained. A student editorial in 1929 complained:
"From the four corners of the earth the grads . . . arrive eager and willing
to enjoy whatever entertainment is prepared for them and to go home when
it is over. They attend Homecoming but do not take part in it . . . Except
in the very laudable matter of gym equipment there is no cooperation
between grads and undergrads."
Homecoming, with its tea dances and basketball and football games, in
the last few years of the twenties and into the very early thirties was the
highlight of the fall programme, but by 1931 the depression was being felt
and the Monday activities were dropped. In 1935 and 1936, a feeble one-
day programme was all that was offered, prompting the Ubyssey to state,
"Homecoming Day is generally thought of as a minor function on this
The completion of the stadium in 1937 created a new interest in English
rugby and Canadian football, and Homecoming once again emerged as a
two-day affair. Over the next few years, the Canadian football game highlighted the programme until 1941 when the Thunderbirds made a final
appearance at Homecoming and then disbanded, a casualty of the war.
During the war years, Homecoming was relegated to a very minor event
consisting of an English rugby game, sometimes an open campus or a potlatch and a dance, primarily for students, at night. After the war Homecoming carried on for several years as a one-day event featuring a Big Block
luncheon, American football, Alumni General Meeting, Alumni dinner, pot-
20 a history
latch in the auditorium, basketball in the gym and a Homecoming dance in
the armoury.
For many years the Boxing Day Ball at the Commodore had proved to
be the most popular social event on the Alumni calendar, but the Alumni
dinner was a genuine effort by the grads to take part in the Homecoming
programme. The informal entertainment that followed was well received.
By sandwiching the dry meat paste of the General Meeting between the
football game and the dinner, the Alumni were able to con enough grads
to make a quorum. In 1947 the students offered a separate dance in Brock
Hall for Alumni only, but this did not meet with enough success to warrant
repetition. Reunions were sometimes held at ten-year intervals provided
the class had been successful in electing an honorary president with sufficient generosity to host them. This usually took the form of a tea at the
home of the honoured one.
The inception of the Alumni Development Fund Annual Giving Programme brought new interest among the graduates. Attention was temporarily diverted from the Homecoming programme to dinners for fund
The current participation of the Alumni in the Homecoming programme
began in 1954 when, as reported at the Annual Meeting that year, "For
the first time in years, the Alumni, headed by Mr. Jack Charlton, took an
active part in Homecoming." In addition to the normal student-sponsored
programme, the Alumni planned a luncheon, reception and dinner, and
gave active support to the Homecoming Ball. Unfortunately the Brock Hall
fire of October 25, 1954, about ten days before Homecoming, forced cancellation of the lunch and dinner. The next year, the luncheon was firmly
established on the programme and class reunions were formally organized
by the Association. Subsequently panel discussions were added and as reported by the Association President, "a tentative beginning in the field of
'continuing education' for Alumni was made at the 1958 Homecoming."
Each year since has seen some new event organized by Alumni until last
year when the most successful, most varied and best attended Alumni Homecoming programme was staged.
With the development of the Alumni programme, the Homecoming Ball
changed gradually from a student affair to which grads were invited to a
separate dance for senior students and alumni, then to a student-sponsored
dance for alumni only, and finally to one which was Alumni-sponsored. As
late as 1958 it was reported that the Boxing Day Ball was still "the most
popular social event of the year." It is also coincident with the start of the
Alumni Homecoming programme that professional football came to Vancouver to compete for the attention of those alumni who formerly supported
the Thunderbirds' game.
The new programme, while creating a new interest among the alumni,
actually did not materially improve their contact with the students. In this
respect a true Homecoming has still to be achieved.
21 Class of 1918 had no annual. It was sacrificed to the war effort. Remember
those hats? Cartoon from 1919 annual may refresh your memories.
Women's Swimming Club was very popular in 1923. Recognize any of these
Men's grass hockey team. "Although
this team finished at the bottom of the
league," says the 1928 Totem, "it put

22 What you can find if you look
in old Totems
1938. These could be the feet of Kemp
Edmonds or Monty Fotheringham
or Dorwin Baird—they were all on the
Ubyssey staff. Highlight for Ubyssey
was the formation of the new Canadian
University Press service. Low point for
students was announcement of a $25 fees
hike and limitation of registration to 2,000.
This year, too, the "Victoria Invasion"
was successfully revived.
1953. A freshman, the lily pond, and engineers of
course. Friends of yours? This was the year the
freshmen ducked almost all the engineers. Campus
queens of '53 were Olive Sturgess, Solveig Lervold,
Marilyn McLallen. Joyce Rohrer, Pat Taylor,
Agnes Lindner.
1943. "I like the picture of you in your gas mask best.'
Some who should have been in this class were in the
services, some were training on the campus. Co-eds
knitted and sewed for the Red Cross between classes.
1948. Class of 70? The communal washtubs serving the
trailer camps were useful baby baths. Veterans introduced the
family scene into campus life.
Trip the light fantastic and recall an Engineers' Ball, a
Mardi Gras, a Boxing Day Ball or the past highlight of your
choice when you attend the biggest social success of the
year Saturday night at the gaily decorated Commodore.
Come and see your old friends in the chorus line or at the
next table.
A reunion for all, informal, convenient, a family affair, and
with many improved touches, makes this 1963 luncheon in
Brock Hall on Saturday noon a must. Come from the morning lectures or before you take in the tours or football game
and reunite with faculty and friends. Bring the whole family.
U.B.C. plays what is reported to be an improved University
of Saskatchewan team. Armchair quarterbacks come out
and give moral support to the cheerleaders. The half time
entertainment is a plus factor.
HOCKEY A U.B.C. team will represent Canada in the Olympics. We
hope to have them play an exhibition game against some
prominent Canadian team.
There will be a men's and a ladies' tournament this year.
Winter Sports have become very important at U.B.C. and a
bonspiel is under consideration. Watch for it, you up-
country curlers.
TOURS See new buildings, like the Freddy Wood Theatre. The offi
cial openings of the Physics Extension and Winter Sports
Centre will take place Homecoming Weekend. Coffee will
be served and development plans discussed in the Graduate
Students Centre.
An outstanding programme that includes the top U.S. space
scientists from N.A.S.A., U.S. Weather Bureau, A.T. & T.,
U.S. Navy, as well as leading Canadian space researchers
will be held at U.B.C. the Friday and Saturday. Alumni are
welcome to attend all or part of the programme. A Space-
mobile may also be included if arrangements can be made.
The School of Home Economics hopes to have an outstanding speaker of interest to their grads.
The revitalized oldsters will lumber up and tackle the 1963
Thunderbirds in this annual classic.
BRIDGE A suggestion that is under serious study is to hold an Alumni
Bridge Tournament at Homecoming. It might be a good
way to find out what some people really learned on campus.
PARADE Watch for the route and see the students of today portray
their campus.
The students plan a massive Pep Rally. For alumni who can
make it, this is a good noon-hour show.
Most fraternities have open houses on Saturday.   Contact
your group.
This is just some advance information. Watch for a special
alumni issue of the Ubyssey to give you the exact details.

the future.
. . . the past
Dean Wah Leung, the newly-appointed
Dean of Dentistry at U.B.C, was the
featured speaker at the Second Annual
Meeting of the Fraser Valley University
Association, held in Abbotsford at the
Junior High School last May 29. Dean
Leung discussed the new developments
around the formation of the Dental
Faculty at U.B.C. At this meeting, Norman Severide, BA'49, LLB'50, was elected President of the Association for the
coming year. The 1963-64 Executive is
listed in the Alumni Directory at the
back of the magazine.
Miss Rosemary Brough, BA'47, our
New York alumni branch contact, represented U.B.C. at the installation of Dr.
Rosemary Park as the new president of
Barnard College of Columbia University.
Six Japanese university students on
summer exchange to U.B.C. were guests
of alumni branches again for weekend
visits. Trips this year were to Summer-
land, Victoria, and Powell River.
The Victoria Alumni Branch held their
Annual Meeting on May 17. in the
Faculty Club on the Gordon Head campus. For the first time, alumni met with
founding members of the Convocation of
the University of Victoria, to hear Mr.
Willard Ireland. BA'33, speak on "From
Castle to Campus". Bob Gray, BA'57.
continues as Branch President for the
coming year.
August 22 was the date of the first
meeting of the Council of Past Presidents
of the Alumni Association. This group
will continue to meet periodically with
the University President as an advisory
body to discuss mutual problems and
areas of concern in the field of higher
.  . .  the present
Your Alumni office in Brock Hall has
been a popular visiting spot for alums
returning to visit the campus this summer.
We hope that you will feel free to drop
into the Alumni office at any time to say
"Hi." Recent visitors have included Bruce
Robinson. BA, BASc'36, from Wolfville,
N.S., Anne Howorth, BHE'52, back from
Cornell University, Harold Mclvor, BA
'48, LLB'49, of Courtenay, Charlotte
Moore, BA'27, of Duncan, Chuck Connaghan. BA'59, MA'60, of Welland, Ontario. Bill Phillips, of Cranbrook, Norman Burgess, BA'40, BEd'48, of Alberni,
and Ben Farrar, BASc'27, from Montreal.
The Alumni Association welcomes our
newly-appointed branch contacts: Mr.
S. B. Sellick, BSF'52, in Port Arthur, Mr.
Ronald Jephson, LLB'56, in Terrace, and
Mr. Robert A. Food, BCom'59, in
21 Past Presidents
university president Dr. John B. Macdonald was guest of honour when
twenty-one past presidents of the Alumni
Association dined at the Faculty Club on
August 22 at the invitation of Paul Plant
and his first vice-president, Dave Brousson. The presidents spanned forty-three
years of Association history, from Dr.
Allardyce, 1920-22, to Paul Plant,
Among them the past presidents had
seen many famous crises in UBC history
encountered and successfully dealt with,
such as the original move to the Point
Grey campus, the depression years when
the university was threatened with closure, the influx of veterans after World
War II, the Development Fund drive to
which can be credited the new look on
the campus.
Alumni interest and participation in
matters of higher education has increased
steadily over the years. Although the
discussions at the dinner were strictly
informal, they had a theme—the crisis
in higher education in British Columbia
and the recommendations contained in
the Macdonald Report.
Paul Plant felt that at this time in the
development of the University of British
Columbia, those active in alumni work
needed the advice of individuals who at
an earlier time demonstrated a continued
interest in UBC by assuming the responsibilities of the presidency of the Alumni
Association. The executive committee of
the Board of Management endorsed the
formation of a Council of Past Presidents of the Alumni Association. This
group would meet once a year with the
President of the University to exchange
views on the needs of the University
and the needs of the community for
University services.
To inaugurate this group, the dinner
was arranged, the first, it is hoped, of
many such reunions. The measure of
success of the meeting might be the late
hour at which it broke up. The continued interest in campus development
of Alumni Association past presidents
was evident and will undoubtedly be
reflected in tangible achievements in the
next few years.
The twenty-one past presidents whose
pictures appear on our cover are, with
their years of office: Dr. W. J. Allardyce, 1920-22; Mr. L. A. Atkinson,
1928-29; Mr. P. A. Whitley, 1929-30;
Mr. J. C. Oliver, 1932-34; Col. J. N.
Burnett, 1934-36; Mr K. M. Beckett,
1938-39; Mr. F. D. Bolton. 1939-40;
Mr. A. T. R. Campbell, 1941-42; Lt.-

Maclvor, Courtenay.
Penticton: Mr. Grant Macdonald.
Prince George: Rev. Newton Steacy.
Chuck Connaghan, the branch contact
in Welland, Ontario, advises that he will
be organizing an alumni gathering this
fall for grads in the Niagara Peninsula
area. Details of the evening will be mailed
to all grads in the area later.
27 ALUMNI ANNUAL GIVING: Measure of Your interest
As of the 3rd day of September we
have actual receipts for AAG: 1963 from
2,224     donors     in     the     amount     of
New Editor
for Chronicle
The next issue of the Chronicle will
have a new editor, Elizabeth Blanche
Norcross. Miss Norcross was the unanimous choice of the editorial subcommittee called to interview applicants.
If her name seems familiar you may
have seen it on the many articles she
has written or as author of The Warm
Land, a history of the Cowichan Valley.
She has also written juvenile fiction, and
has been an occasional contributor to the
Canadian  Broadcasting Corporation.
Miss Norcross is a descendant of a
pioneer Vancouver Island family who
came to Cowichan in 1886. She is a
niece of the late J. Edward Norcross
who was for many years editor of
various Vancouver newspapers.
A native of B.C., she was educated in
Vancouver Island and Vancouver
schools. At UBC where she received her
degree in 1956, she majored in French
and history. She continues her interest
in history as a member of the Vancouver  Historical Society.
Miss Norcross has combined a business career with free-lance writing.
During the war she was employed in
Ottawa by the Department of Munitions
and Supply as assistant private secretary
to the deputy minister and later as a
junior organization officer in the same
department. Recently she has been
secretary-manager for the Duncan-
Cowichan Chamber of Commerce.
Elizabeth Norcross
Of approximately 27,000 graduates of
UBC, over 2,000 have participated to
date. Of the remaining 25,000 about 40
have written to AAG to explain valid
reasons why they cannot participate
this year. Two other grads have responded in this way—one is well established in Vancouver holding a professional position, the other is a very recent
graduate with an extremely modest
salary in a foreign land:
"Kindly remove my name from your
sucker list."
"My donation is over 8% of my
monthly salary. Let me try to donate
10% of my monthly earnings next time."
Each graduate must elect to fall into
one or the other of these attitudes. We
believe the latter view to be the mature
and serious view of a graduate's responsibility to UBC. What will be the response of the  remaining 24,959?
The AAG Committee has under active
consideration a substantial revolving loan
fund for senior students, which it is
hoped can be introduced this year. The
revolving loan fund will be additional to
the other objectives already established
for Annual Giving, among them the 42
regional Norman MacKenzie scholarships, (winners for this year are listed
below), the President's Fund, the Library
and athletic and recreational facilities.
Half-year equals 1962
The excellent response to AAG in the
first six months of 1963 has resulted in
a total dollar contribution of $37,092.86
or just in excess of the $36,749.55 raised
in  12 months of 1962.
New Donors exceed Old
AAG is a real measure of the interest
or indifference of graduates. This year
surprising   interest   is   shown   from   the
previously indifferent alum. Of 1,375
donors as at June 30th, 623 were repeat
donors from 1962. We have therefore
received support from 752 new donors
to date.
There are still 1,904 donors of last
year's group from whom we believe we
can count on continuing support.
Absence makes Fond Heart
Absence, both in time and in distance,
makes the graduate's interest keener.
(See the graph, on opposite page, sent
by one donor.) Our largest single area,
Greater Vancouver, is again behind in
response. A late solicitation to the Vancouver area should improve their relative position, but the response will have
to be massive to equal the out-of-town
graduates. The graduation years from
1916 to 1924 are double all other years
in percentage of participation.
Faculty-proud or ? ?
Graduates in Music (25%), Commerce (11%), Librarianship (10.7%),
Forestry (8%), Nursing (6.7%), Medicine (6.5%) have led in participation
so far this year. For some strange reason, embarrassing to the AAG chairman
and the director of the Alumni Association, our poorest response (to date) has
been from Lawyers (1.1%) and Social
Workers (.07%). (Rod Macdonald and
Tim Hollick-Kenyon please note).
45 Campaigns already!
During the first six months 45 separate
campaigns were waged to obtain the
successful half-year response. Of these,
seven resulted in a 30% or better response, and another nine exceeded 10%.
Each campaign was directed to an individual group of alumni, such as specific
years, faculties, or areas.
AAG financed these Scholarships
Norman Mackenzie Alumni Scholarships, of $300 each, have been awarded

It's difficult to say whether it is more parlous, or less, than it
was, but it's a safe opener to say it is still parlous. Readers of
an informative newspaper can point to encouraging developments in some areas of our perennial crisis, but perceptive
students of events will have no trouble in recognizing more
ominous signs in other quarters. The operative words in all

Mr. Thorsteinsson runs a system which
has 61 schools stretching from Tuktoyak-

38 F. Tony Pletcher, BSc, BEd'60, a former biology and general sciences teacher
at Magee high school, has been investigating the life cycle of a fish which may
be on the increase in B.C.
The Pacific lamprey, which attaches
itself to salmon and other edible fish with
a sucker-like mouth and then sucks out
the blood and body fluids, appears to be
on the increase in two Vancouver Island
They are Cowichan Lake, west of Duncan, and Elsie Lake, north of Port
Alberni. The B.C. Game Commission is
presently carrying out a survey of Elsie
Lake to see if there has been a marked
increase in the activities of the predator.
As a result of Pletcher's studies, it is
now known that lampreys have a much
wider range in B.C. than was previously
They are found to be the most abundant fish resident in the streams of the
lower Fraser valley and travel up the
Fraser as far as Lillooet. They are also
found in the Skeena and Bulkley river
system and have penetrated to Babine
Lake mid-way between Prince Rupert
and Prince George.
If the lamprey threatens the fish population of the lakes, scientists may use a
lampricide called TFM which has been
used in Eastern Canada where the lamprey has almost totally destroyed the
fishing industry on the Great Lakes.
