meeting. At right is Mark Collins, who made the
presentation. Mr. Koerner was one of two people
presented with honorary membership for their work
during the development fund campaign and their continuing interest in the University. The other recipient
was Alan Williamson, who was abroad at the time of
the meeting.
Several hundred U.B.C. graduates
turned out May 19 for the annual general meeting of the Alumni Association
which was held for the first time in conjunction with the University's spring congregation   ceremonies.
A highlight of the meeting in the
banquet room of the Hotel Vancouver
was the election of a new board of
management to guide the affairs of the
Association during the coming year.
Donovan F. Miller, B.Com/47, was
elected president of the Association to
succeed Mark Collins, B.A/34, B.Com.'34
who will serve on the board as past president. (Names of all members of the
board of management are listed on page
In his report to the Association, retiring president Collins said that like the
University, the Alumni Association during the past year has been growing,
building and maturing. He continued:
"Today there are some 27,000 Alumni
of our University, of whom some 20,000
are still resident in British Columbia.
As each year passes, most of these graduates attain positions of leadership and
responsibility in business and the community. They are a potent, intelligent
and educated force."
After recounting the work of the Association during the past year Mr. Collins concluded by listing seven ways in
which the Association can best serve the
University and the people of B.C. They
are as follows:
1. Adequate buildings are being constructed for the present student population at U.B.C. We should direct our
attention to building needs in the 1962-
65 period when there will be a further
explosion in student numbers.
2. Increased liaison between U.B.C.
and provincial areas outside the lower
mainland will benefit the growing population in the interior and the north. The
Alumni Association should assist in providing  this  liaison.
3. Equalization grants provide a means
of equalizing opportunity for all students
in British Columbia. The Association
should continue to press for the establishment by the provincial government
of a system of such grants.
Trying out the presidential gavel after being installed as president of the
Alumni Association for the coming year is Donovan Miller, right. At his
shoulder is Mark Collins, now past president of the Association.
4. In education, further seminars and
studies would help bring about improvements in the secondary school program
to improve the competence of students
entering U.B.C. Our education committee can serve an important function
in sponsoring undertakings of this kind.
5. Reform of the University senate
in its composition and functions could
lead to fuller consideration of policy
matters by this important body. The Association could assist in studying this
6. The Alumni Association which comprises 20,000 educated citizens of the
province can assist the University in the
important area of government and public
7. Alumni are trained, interested in
education and willing to work for its
improvement. The Alumni board should
strive to use more and more of them
each year for studies in the general field
of education.
Following the installation of Mr. Miller
as president the guest speaker of the evening, General A. G. L. McNaughton,
chairman of the Canadian section of the
International Joint Commission, was introduced by President N. A. M. MacKenzie.
In his address. General McNaughton
recalled his earlier associations with
U.B.C. and then went on to outline the
work of the commission of which he is
5      U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE —* 'J A t
Summerland high school girls  beam as President MacKenzie answers their questions about  U.B.C
A great many people are concerned
about the future of higher education in
B.C. This was confirmed by the interest
in the president's talks during the tour
of the interior from Kamloops to Penticton early in April.
How can the opportunities for higher
education be increased most economically
and without sacrifice of academic standards? Has the time come for decentralization? Do we need junior colleges?
These are some of the questions presently being asked by graduates and
friends of U.B.C. Answers to them were
given by Dr. MacKenzie in public
addresses and informal talks at Kamloops, Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton and
Summerland during this annual, alumni-
sponsored   tour.
Citizens of B.C. were asking somewhat similar questions almost ninety
years ago, Dr. MacKenzie said. The
establishment of a University was delayed
for many years because no satisfactory
answers could be found and because of
disagreement about a site. Eventually,
in 1910, the government appointed a
commission   of   distinguished   educators
from outside the Province to resolve
this latter problem and shortly thereafter the University of B.C. came into
The President suggested that a royal
commission might be the best means
of securing sound answers to the present
questions about the future of higher
education in British Columbia. In advocating a royal commission Dr. MacKenzie was supporting an Alumni Association resolution presented to the government in February.
However, there should be no illusions
about what was involved in the establishment of new institutions beyond the
high school, the president cautioned.
Communities would derive economic
and cultural benefits from junior or
community colleges, but all communities
could not have such institutions. Higher
education is extremely costly and decentralization will not mean less money
but more. To ensure high standards a
community must be well equipped with
libraries and other cultural amenities
and be able to attract and retain highly-
qualified staff.
The president reviewed the history of
U.B.C, its struggles for adequate revenue and facilities, and suggested that
no provincial system of higher education
could be a good one without a first-
class university at the apex. The University of British Columbia is still short of
money, buildings, facilities and courses
needed by  the province.
Dr. MacKenzie again advocated the
appointment of a provincial board of
governors or regents for the administration of all higher education, the allocation of government grants and assignment of areas of academic and professional education.
Alumni branches and local committees
organized the 1960 tour and entertained
the president and his party, Mrs. MacKenzie, J. L. Haar, J. A. Banham and
A. H. Sager, at all centres. Thanks go

Thorleif Larsen, M.A.(Toronto), B.A.
(Oxon.), F.R.S.C, professor emeritus of
English, died March 22, 1960, at the age
of 72.
Born in Sponviken, Norway, he came
to Canada at the age of two with his
parents who settled in New Westminster.
After receiving his master's degree from
the University of Toronto at the age of
19, he went to Oxford as Rhodes Scholar
for B.C., where in 1909 he was awarded
the degree of bachelor of arts with first
class honours in English language and
literature. Upon his return he taught
English at Victoria high school briefly.
In 1915 he was called to the B.C. bar
and practised law until 1917 when he
enlisted and served overseas with the
Canadian army. He joined the U.B.C.
faculty in 1919 and lectured in the
English department, except for two
visits to Oxford for post-graduate
studies, until 1958. For the last five
years after his retirement in 1953, he
remained as special lecturer.
Professor Larsen is survived by his
wife, Irene, 1235 West 27th Avenue;
three sons, John H. R. and M. Patrick
of Vancouver, and Edward of Shawnigan; a daughter, Mary Jeanne (Molly)
of  Victoria,  and   ten  grandchildren.
Mr. Larsen has left the memory of
excellence in the minds of his students.
One of them, Dr. William Robbins, has
said his death "will bring a sharp sense
of loss to the generations of former
students who share an affectionate
memory of the living teacher and a deep
indebtedness to the thorough scholar.
For he revealed in himself, and cultivated
in his students, a fine appreciation of
literature as a source of emotional and
imaginative experience, together with a
scrupulous respect for exactness of
knowledge and integrity of statement.
"Those who followed his path and became his colleagues found inspiration for
their own careers ... in his lectures on
poetry, on tragedy, on Elizabethan literature. Those many more whose later
life and work have been in other fields
than scholarly study gained, from lectures
on literature in general, insights which
have illuminated their reading and their
"He was a modest man with a gentle
humour, a friendly warmth, an unobtrusive excellence. Deeply religious, he
could sympathize with those of honestly
different views. Uncompromising in
standards, he never expected the impossible from those to whom he gave
unsparingly of his perceptive encouragement. Wisdom and goodness were the
qualities of his inner being. As such,
they have been a continuing and leavening influence in the lives of all those
who   knew  him."
An editorial in the Victoria Times
said of him: "He was a teacher in the
finest sense of the word; a man who
knew his craft, understood it, respected
it, and was endowed with a peculiar
genius for transmitting his knowledge
to  undergraduates.
" 'Tu-ly' as he was affectionately
known, was one of the authentic builders
of U.B.C; one of that hardy band who
survived the poverty-stricken depression
years and lived to see it become one of
the most vigorous and yeasty halls of
learning on the continent. He brought
to it the priceless gifts of erudition and
that well-balanced intellect which discriminates between the meretricious and
the first-rate. These are things which
create character in a university, and
remain an enduring legacy."
A scholarship in memory of Professor
Larsen will be established at the University of British Columbia. The scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding
student in English. It is hoped that there
will be sufficient contributions to endow
a continuing scholarship. Contributions
should be sent to the University of B.C.
accounting office, with cheques made
out to the "University of B.C.—Thorleif
Larsen Scholarship Fund."
Alfred Haines, known to faculty and
students as the University mailman, died
April 8, 1960, in Vancouver. He is survived  by  his  wife  and  daughter.  Born
in England, Mr. Haines joined the University staff in 1942 and since 1951 had
made his daily rounds delivering the
campus mail. He will be remembered by
all who knew him for his loyalty and
devotion  to his  work.
W.  Albert B.  Bickell,  B.A.Sc,   M.Sc.
(McGill), died in Vancouver August 30,

sons, two at U.B.C. Barry, and John,
who was first member at large on the
1959/60 Student's Council.
Malcolm McDonald, B.A.Sc. died in
Sao Paulo, Brazil, January 30, 1960. He

11       U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE The proud professor in the picture above
is Everton Alexander Lloyd, former head
of U.B.C.'s department of poultry husbandry. The object of his pride is "U.B.C.
White Leghorn No. 6", the hen that
made history in 1927 by laying 351
eggs in 365 days—at that time a world's
record. Prof. Lloyd began the breeding
program which culminated in the record
in 1919 when he arrived at U.B.C. to
teach World War I veterans. More than
40 years later, in 1952, Prof. Lloyd retired from active work at U.B.C. and at
a farewell party he was presented with
a new car by his colleagues as a token
of their esteem. He is shown above, in
the picture second from left, behind the
wheel with Mrs. Lloyd seated beside him.
The photograph at top right is a formal
portrait of Professor Lloyd taken by
D'Arcy. "The Prof", as Lloyd is known
to thousands of students and colleagues,
is still active in the poultry world in
California where he now lives.
Professor Jacob Biely, the author of the
accompanying article on the Prof, writes
from personal experience. He was a pupil
of Lloyd's in the days when students
took buses from the Fairview shacks to
the campus to carry out practical work
on the U.B.C. farm. Prof. Biely also
worked for many years with Lloyd as a
teaching and research colleague. Prof.
Biely is now head of the department of
poultry husbandry. Some of the material
in the article has appeared in the 1959
edition of "Who's Who in the Poultry
In 1927 a hen bearing the prosaic name
"U.B.C. White Leghorn No. 6" made history and became the talk of the poultry
world by laying a record 351 eggs in 365
days in a government-supervised egg-laying contest at Agassiz. An American
breeder offered $1000 for hen No. 6 but
the then president of U.B.C, Dr. L. S.
Klinck, vetoed the sale and the prolific
bird stayed in Canada. Sons of No. 6
sold for $500 each and her progeny has
found its way to many foreign lands.
Of those who had a hand in the breeding of hen No. 6 none was prouder of her
accomplishment than Professor Everton
Alexander Lloyd, who joined the faculty
in 1919 to assist in the teaching of World
War I veterans and retired in 1952 as
head of the department of poultry husbandry.
In U.B.C.'s short history there are few
more colorful and versatile figures than
the "Prof"—the name by which Lloyd is
known to students and poultry breeders.
For in addition to his main interest the
Prof was an avid sportsman, a devotee
of the theatre, and a student of politics.
The Point Grey campus of 1919 was a
curious place. The skeletons of the library
and the chemistry building had been
weathering in the wind and rain since
1914 when the government halted construction of permanent buildings on the
outbreak of the first world war. The University farm existed on its present site
and agriculture students travelled from
the Fairview shacks to Point Grey to supplement lectures with laboratory work on
the U.B.C. farm. In the enclosed basement of the skeletal chemistry building
the poultry husbandry department set up
its first incubators and began the breeding program which culminated in the accomplishment of hen No. 6 almost ten
years later. Associated with Lloyd in the
poultry breeding program was Dr. V. S.
Asmundson, who, like Lloyd, was a
graduate of the University of Saskatchewan.
Lloyd quickly gained a reputation as an
inspiring and enthusiastic lecturer. He
supplemented his vast store of knowledge
with the voracious reading of scientific
journals and poultry magazines from all
over the world. When dealing with his
subject the Prof was colorful and precise
in his language. His phenomenal memory
never allowed him to forget a detail.
These qualities contrasted sharply with
occasional absentmindedness. The writer
remembers one occasion when a good
friend of the department was invited by
the Prof to have lunch on the campus.
Lloyd became so engrossed in conversation with the visitor that he forgot lunch
and asked his guest to have a cup of coffee instead. The guest paid for the coffee
and the Prof pocketed the silver change.
As with all good teachers Lloyd had a
marked influence on his students and
many would never have become interested
in poultry had it not been for the personal contacts which engendered a spirit
of inquiry and a desire for serious study.
In at least one case known to the writer
the Prof's influence began early. One
year, while judging poultry at the Chilliwack Fair, he was followed closely by a
young girl who was intensely interested in
every bird he handled. They struck up a
conversation and the Prof told her,
"When you leave school, Ursula, be sure
and take an agricultural course at U.B.C.
and specialize in poultry."
Ursula Knight, much to the surprise of
her parents, followed Lloyd's advice, and
after graduation from U.B.C, went to
California where she obtained her Ph.D.
in genetics. Former pupils of Lloyd's are
now associated with many universities in
Canada and the United States and not a
few of them have risen high in govern-
ment circles. One should mention Clifford Barry, recently appointed deputy
minister of agriculture in the federal government; Dr. Michael Lerner, professor
of genetics at the University of California
and author of three books, and Lyall
Currie, president of the Surrey Cooperative Association in Cloverdale.
In addition to courses in the fields of
genetics, incubation, nutrition, farm management and marketing, the Prof, in collaboration with other members of his
staff, was responsible for many short
courses and night classes as well as
numerous lectures delivered in all parts
of the province. During World War II
night classes in poultry husbandry attracted more than 100 men and women
from Vancouver and district and two
large classes of commercial poultrymen
received instruction at Cloverdale. It was
on one of the many field trips made to
poultry farms in the Fraser Valley that
the Prof displayed his humanitarian instincts. He invariably treated the students
who accompanied him on these trips to
coffee and sandwiches and one day, at
Whalley, he noticed a stray dog that
looked very hungry. Without a moment's
hesitation Lloyd bought some meat at a
local butcher store and fed it to the
animal. On another occasion the pathology laboratory at U.B.C. was taxed
with a large number of sick birds for
post-mortem examination. The Prof,
feeling sorry for the ailing chickens,
bought a pint of milk and fed it to them,
even though they were to be destroyed
within a few hours.
Radio talks on poultry husbandry were
broadcast in B.C. as early as 1927 and
some were published in pamphlet form
by the agriculture division of the B.C.
Electric Talks and pamphlets resulted in
a large correspondence and in every instance the Prof sent a prompt reply to
the writer.
From its very beginning the department of poultry husbandry undertook an
active program of research. In the 20s no
one foresaw the part the lowly hen, then
the source of pin money for the farmer's
wife, would ultimately play in the agricultural economy of the world.
Some of the questions facing poultry
scientists at that time were the potential
productivity of the hen—was it 100, 200,
or 300 eggs per year?—proper breeding
and feeding, the economics of egg production and the elements of good management.
The department undertook to find an
answer to many of these problems. The
most successful contribution made by
Prof. Lloyd and Dr. Amundson was in
the field of poultry breeding. Four
breeds were established on the U.B.C.
farm, single-comb White Leghorns, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds
and White Wyandottes. Breeding for egg
production and size began in 1919 and
culminated in the world record of hen
No. 6.
Two other breeds, Black Orpingtons
and Light Sussex, were eventually added
to the flock at the University farm. During the 1930s New Hampshires were introduced and soon gained a prominent
place in the U.B.C. breeding program.
Early in his career the Prof became interested in autosexing, a breeding technique developed by Dr. R. C. Punnett of
Cambridge to determine the sex of chicks
at hatching time. The stock which Dr.
Punnett used in his experiments were
comparatively poor egg producers and in
order to improve production h» secured
a pen of Barred Rocks from the U.B.C.
department. With these as foundation
stock Dr. Punnett developed the famous
Cambar and later presented, as a mark
of gratitude, a male and two females to
U.B.C. Prof. Lloyd used them as a nucleus to establish the Cambar at U.B.C.
and later developed the Hampbar and
the Legbar as high egg-producing autosexing birds.
It was due to the Prof's efforts that the
Japanese method of chick sexing was introduced to this continent. One of his
students was later to introduce the
method in Great Britain. Prof. Lloyd
translated a Japanese book on this method
into English with the aid of a Japanese
student whose English was vsry limited
and two students who specialized in poultry husbandry. Characteristically, the introduction which the Prof wrote for the
book was longer than the Japanese text.
The Record of Performance breeding
program initiated by the Dominion department of agriculture found its most
loyal supporter in Prof. Lloyd and in
the minds of many he was "Mr. R.O.P."
He served for years as secretary of the
British Columbia R.O.P. Association and
through his efforts R.O.P.-bred stock was
exported to foreign countries to serve as
foundation stock. As a by-product of this
program hundreds of breeding cockerels
were sold at reasonable prices to poultry-
men in B.C. and elsewhere to improve
stock. It was not unusual for the Prof to
arrange transportation of hatching eggs
from the U.B.C. flock or from some
prominent local breeder to Great Britain,
or of breeding stock to Palestine, Japan
and other remote countries.
To publicize B.C. stock Lloyd wrote
numerous articles for Canadian, American and English journals. His articles
were in such demand that between 1925
and 1935 he received as much as ten
cents a word for contributions to the
Reliable Poultry Journal and other publications.
13     U.B.C.   ALUMNI   CHRONICLE Canada was the first country in the
world to introduce a compulsory grading
system for the sale of commercial eggs,
and to have this same grading program
adopted from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Canadian eggs immediately gained an enviable reputation in interprovincial and
foreign markets. Working in close cooperation with government officials in
Canada, Great Britain, and the B.C. Produce Association, Prof. Lloyd did everything possible to promote the export of
eggs to Great Britain via the Panama
Canal. As a spokesman and public relations man for the poultry industry the
Prof was at his best. He was one of the
prime organizers of the third World Poultry Congress in Ottawa in 1927 and the
exhibit from representative B.C. breeders
was admired by the Prince of Wales,
Stanley Baldwin, the prime minister of
Great Britain and MacKenzie King. Many
prominent delegates from foreign countries visited B.C. and were officially
escorted by the Prof.
Prof. Lloyd also attended the fifth
World's Poultry Congress in London in
1930 and sent to local newspapers a number of colorful and vivid despatches. He
played an important part in arranging the
display of Canadian poultry and eggs at
this conference and as a result of the
contacts which he made in Great Britain
the sale of B.C. eggs was greatly increased and because of their high quality
were as much in demand as those imported from Denmark and Ireland. In September, 1939, with the writer, the Prof
took part in the World's Poultry Congress
in Cleveland. The sudden outbreak of
war caused many of the overseas delegates to hasten their departure.
During the Second World War, B.C.
production and marketing had to be geared to meet the ever-increasing demand of
Great Britain for eggs and poultry. Poultry farms operated to capacity, and most
of the daily routine work was performed
by women and children in their 'teens.
Prof. Lloyd once again came forward
with his enthusiasm, his knowledge and
experience, to arouse interest and stimulate production; he gave ungrudgingly of
his time to lectures and demonstrations,
and he attended meeting after meeting of
the Poultry Industries Council and the
Poultry Produce Association. He also
participated in several national conferences in Ottawa. His reports on the
various national meetings were always
given in such detail that one could not
help wondering how he could remember,
without hesitation, who had said what.
Needless to say, Prof. Lloyd was not always in agreement with the decisions
reached at the conferences. He was usually one step ahead of everyone else, and
had the reputation of being more daring
and imaginative than the others. In retrospect, one can say that as a rule he was
more often right than wrong.
Physically the Prof was the embodiment of energy and vigour. Short and
wiry he possessed enormous endurance
and his day normally lasted from 6 a.m.
to well after midnight. His hours were
crammed with lectures, administrative
duties, daily inspections of the U.B.C.
poultry farm, visits to poultry flocks in
the Fraser valley, writing scores of letters
every day, and, above all, reading, reading, reading.
Despite this regime the Prof was fond
of numerous coffee breaks but used this
period of relaxation for discussions and
arguments on every conceivable topic.
He had a mobile and expressive face with
blue eyes and an enviable crop of thick,
grey hair. His face and expression reflected a man of intellect, knowledge and
great human understanding.
Scholar, lecturer and writer! These are
the titles that come to mind when one
thinks of Prof. Lloyd. But there are
others, too, which bring fond memories
to those who had the privilege of working
with such a versatile man. The Prof was
an athlete. Unlike most of us, he was not
only an enthusiastic spectator but an
active participant as well. His tennis was
excellent and graduate as well as undergraduate students received more than one
drubbing at his hands. He played soccer
on the faculty team against the Students'
Council, and he never missed a university
athletic event; he was even known to attend regularly the annual high school
sports day in the Brockton Oval and at
the University stadium.
The attraction that athletics hold for a
man whose life is devoted to science is
understandable. But it is rather unusual
for a scientist to turn to the Thespian art
in search of relaxation. However, that
was another of Prof. Lloyd's hobbies.
For several years he was active in the
University Players' Club and directed
several plays. Prof. Lloyd and Mrs.
Lloyd together with their youngsters Bob
and Pat were excellent hosts. A free and
easy atmosphere prevailed at their evening parties. There was always music for
dancing, homemade beer and fruit punch
to quench the thirst, and sandwiches and
cakes to please any gourmet.
The Prof's foremost avocation was
politics, both international and domestic.
As far as the writer can remember, the
Prof was nearly always against the government in power. He envisioned a government made up of the best men from
all parties, so he voted for the man rather
than the party, and during the depression
and the war years he openly favoured a
coalition government for Canada. He was
a great admirer of Churchill and his letters to the great wartime leader were the
subject of prolonged and lively discussions by members of the faculty. He also
corresponded extensively with the then
minister of agriculture, Mr. J. G. Gardiner, and with Mr. A. M. Shaw, the
chairman of the price support board. The
Prof continually prodded the department
of agriculture into adopting more progressive measures.
During his last years of tenure at
U.B.C. Prof. Lloyd became engaged in
the controversy that arose in connection
with Newcastle's disease. The then veterinary-general felt that on the basis of
past experiments with larger animals, the
disease could be eradicated from B.C.
flocks by the slaughter method. The Prof
was extremely skeptical of such a dire
remedy. He became the most forceful
advocate of vaccination and was involved
in lively arguments time and time again.
He, more than anybody else, was instrumental in securing a fair compensation
for the birds which were slaughtered.
Finally, the dominion government relaxed its regulations, and vaccination was
accepted as a legal procedure not only in
British Columbia, but in the other Canadian provinces.
Strange as it may seem, the Prof never
had a watch with him, yet he was never
known to miss a lecture. However, he was
often late for faculty meetings and particularly for meetings of the heads of
departments. His tardiness was excusable,
since he was always busy either lecturing,
dictating letters, or waiting for long distance telephone calls. At times some of
us thought the late arrivals were deliberate on his part.
Upon his retirement, as a mark of the
esteem in which Prof. Lloyd was held
over a period of 41 years, he was honored
at a farewell party by his colleagues, former students, dominion and provincial
government officials and leaders of the
industry. Those of us who were privileged
to participate in the event will never forget the Profs expression of surprise when
the late Harry Bowman, minister of agriculture, presented Prof. Lloyd with the
keys to a 1952 Pontiac sedan as a gift
from his admirers. For once the Prof was
at a loss for words!
The Prof's career did not end with his
retirement from U.B.C. He is still active
in the poultry industry in California and
during March submitted a most comprehensive memorandum on agricultural
policy to the vice-president of the United
States, Richard Nixon. His contribution
to American agriculture in the eight years
that he has resided in California may be
no less than that during his years of service to agriculture in Canada. In any
case he remains as much of a visionary
today as he was in 1919 when he first
joined the faculty of the University of
British Columbia.
Dr. Hugh L. Keenleyside graduated from the
University of B.C. in 1920 and received his
doctor's degree from Clark University in 1923.
In 1928 he began a distinguished career in government service and retired in 1959 as chief of
the United Nations Technical Assistance Administration. He is now chairman of the B.C. Power
Commission. The speech which is reproduced
here is an address given to the 1960 graduating
class of the Faculty of Commerce and Business
. . . For the past ten years I have been engaged in
helping to develop and administer programs of Aid not
Trade. Of course as you all know the technical assistance
activities of the United Nations and the Colombo Plan and
Point Four are not relief programs and are in fact designed
—among other things—to help the less advanced countries
to develop their trading potentials . . .
... I could have contented myself by quoting the
authorities to show how important trade is as an aspect
of our life. Adam Smith the founder of political economy
(may his punishment never end) said that "the propensity
to truck, barter and exchange one thing for another . . .
is common to all men, and to be found in no other race
of animals." The ineffable Calvin Coolidge, the unpleasant little man who became president of the United
States because of his fame as a strike-breaker and who did
as much as any one person could to cause the great depression, once grossly insulted his fellow-Americans by saying,
"the business of America is business"—in other words the
ultimate objective of all the effort, sacrifice, labour, suffering; of all the idealism, the intelligence, the generosity that
have marked the history of the American people has not
been justice, or knowledge, or beauty, or virtue, or happiness; but just business for the sake of business . . .
Of course I could have spent half an hour in saying—
what is quite obvious—that Canadian exporters are in
danger of pricing themselves out of some of even their
traditional markets. But that gambit has recently been used
by a distinguished member of parliament from our own
city. Incidentally I have drawn a certain sardonic amusement from the enthusiasm with which some our more
loquacious business colleagues burst into fulsome praise of
Mr. Harold Winch for his remarks about labour costs, but
made no reference to his observations about such hallowed
matters as profits and business practices.
Then I might have brought up again the regrettable way
in which Canadian trade is becoming more and more concentrated in a single channel—across the American boundary. But this has long been recognized and a couple of
years ago we elected a government, in part at least, because
it promised to do something about it. Wasn't it 15 per cent
that was to be diverted to British markets? Just another of
those slippery platform planks on which one can run
but not legislate.
I thought that I might say something about the necessity of buying abroad if we are to continue successfully to
sell abroad. But on this theme I asked myself, what is the
use? Everyone with any pretensions to literacy in trade
matters knows that this is true. Everyone is equally agreed
that steps should be taken to facilitate such purchases
abroad—except, of course, in those commodities in the
production of which he has a personal interest. In this as
in so many other matters intellectual conviction is not
I might have decided to talk about the growing
economic and trading organizations of Europe. The coming
together of the Inner Six and the Outer Seven and the
efforts being made to open doors between them represent
what we all must recognize as a healthy movement towards
the elimination of those ubiquitous and strangling national
trade barricades that have contributed so much to the
bloody history of that most belligerent of continents. But
there is not very much that Canada or Canadians can do
either to help or to hinder this movement towards a more
unified economy in Europe . . .
Finally I considered the advisability of talking about
our over-valued and purse-proud dollar, and its effect on
15     U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE "It is of the first importance
that Canadian industrial and commercial organizations engaged
in foreign trade should give renewed and persistent
thought to the possibility of improving their
administrative practices."
our external trade. (Its value as a purchasing medium at
home is too grim a subject for refined conversation. After
all there are ladies present.) . . .
Anyway, rightly or wrongly 1 discarded these topics
and decided that I would talk to you briefly about three
suggestions each of which has had rather less consideration
by Canadians than it deserves.
The first is the desirability of trying to do something
about our economic relations with the United States that is
less drastic and less of a political pipe-dream than the proposal sometimes made for an economic union, and yet
might have a rationalizing effect on some components of
our North American economy.
Some of you may recall that in the early days of the
Second World War the governments of Canada and the
United States set up joint economic committees to cooperate
in planning the maximum beneficial use of the resources
and productive machinery of the two countries for war
purposes. As a result of the work of these committees there
was a marked improvement in the effective utilization of
the two economies.
One of the proposals that was discussed but not acted
upon at that time has, I believe, some significance for
those who are concerned with developing economic relations between the two countries in ways that would be
mutually profitable and otherwise beneficial. The particular
suggestion I have in mind and that was given consideration
by the joint economic committees, had to do with the automotive industry on the two sides of the boundary. The idea,
in brief, was that each major company in this field should
divide its production by allocating the manufacture of certain specific units exclusively to a Canadian factory. All
other models would be made in the United States, and the
tariff on motor cars would be completely abolished. This
would mean for the Canadian factory that it would have
the whole market above the Mexican border for the particular models which it produced. Similarly the units produced in the United States would have free access to the
Canadian market. It was argued that this would mean that
the companies concerned would profit by a larger consolidated market, that the various centres of production would
have an increased stability in demand and employment, and
that the American consumer possibly, and the Canadian
consumer certainly, would have the benefit of lower prices.
Although this proposal was abandoned under the pressure of wartime necessities it was known to the members
of the committees that at least one major American producer was prepared to enter into serious discussions of this
It seems to me that we have in this bit of ancient history the nucleus of an idea that might well be considered
by those in charge of economic policy in Washington and
Ottawa. There would, of course, be many fields in which
the idea could not be effectively applied. It is, however, at
least worth considering whether there are not some industrial areas that could usefully be scrutinized with such a
division of activities in mind.
The second suggestion that I propose to submit for
your consideration is also, in part at least, the result of
wartime experience. Let me put it in the briefest possible
form. It is, I think, of the first importance that Canadian
industrial and commercial organizations engaged in foreign
trade should give renewed and persistent thought to the
possibility of improving their administrative practices.
It is a popular sport in some business circles to refer in
scornful terms to the inefficiency and bureaucratic incompetence of government departments and government
agencies. Let me say in passing that the most vocal and
most abusive of those who indulge in this kind of shotgun
accusation are usually to be found among the less experienced and less sophisticated members of the business community. The loudest noises usually emanate from the intellectually unwashed. When dealing with the higher echelons
of Canadian business and finance there is a minimum indulgence in this kind of generalized criticism. People in
positions of real responsibility generally tend to know what
they are talking about. Everyone who knows the circumstances knows that there is inefficiency in government service as there is in every other human activity; but that there
is less efficiency in the conduct of public affairs than there
is in private business is, in my opinion, a very dubious
charge. That there is less honesty it is safe, categorically, to
It will be recalled that during the Second World War a
great many Canadian business men were asked to go to
Ottawa to assist in the management of the war effort there.
Many of these men did remarkably good jobs. Some of
them were magnificent. It has not, however, been widely
advertised that a rather surprisingly large percentage of
them, when faced with new conditions of work, when held
to public accountability for every decision, proved to be
gravely incompetent. In some cases they had to be returned
to the organizations from which they came. In others they
were given less demanding jobs than had originally been intended. Believe it or not, I think it is probably true that the
professors who were taken to Ottawa to help in the war
effort did at least as good a job as the business men. Some
would say that they did much better, even in administrative
The scepticism which many of us developed at that
time about the relative efficiency of some segments of
Canadian business has in my case been in part at least
confirmed by later experience and by contacts with Canadian business abroad. During the last ten years I have had
occasion to travel widely and to meet business, financial
and governmental leaders in a great many countries. Naturally I have been interested not only in my own immediate
United Nations problems but in the relations existing
between these countries and my own. Generally speaking
the Canadian traveller experiences a warming pride when
he discovers the very high regard in which Canada and
Canadians are held in other countries. In the business field
also this is widely true—especially in connection with Canadian financial institutions and those who manage them. On
the other hand it is worth noting that there has been and is
a surprising amount of criticism of Canadian business
methods not only among foreign businessmen but by our
own trade representatives in foreign countries. This criticism is not generally directed towards Canadian standards of
honesty or the quality of Canadian products. It rather tends
to concentrate on charges of inefficiency, inexperience and
lack of initiative, imagination and energy in the procedures
and administrative activities of the companies concerned.
Administrative weakness is of course inevitably reflected in
the cost of the products concerned.
It is for these reasons that I suggest that one of the
most important aspects of the effort to promote Canadian
trade abroad is the necessity of ensuring that the industrial
U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE      16 "We should not, we cannot, remain passive
in comfort while two-thirds of the people in the world—
men and women and little children with needs and emotions and
hopes like our own—suffer unnecessarily from
ignorance and hunger, from illness and injustice."
and commercial organizations engaged in this activity
should conduct their affairs with a maximum of adminstra-
tive efficiency. Merely reducing wage rates and cutting
down on profits is not going to enable Canadians to compete successfully in the severe commercial weather that is
going to be encountered in the next twenty years. It was
no outsider, nor an academic critic, but the head of one of
the largest manufacturing industries in Canada* who said
in Vancouver a few weeks ago that if this country is going
to meet the economic competition of other world powers
two things are essential: improvement of management
efficiency and of manufacturing methods. Here is the voice
of experience and intelligence, and you will note that it is
singing no dirges over high wage rates or excessive profits.
It is no secret that in the next few years in addition to
the normal competition in world markets Canadians will
have to face a new and very serious challenge from the
state-guided and state-controlled organizations of the totalitarian countries. To meet this threat Canadian business will
have to take a severely critical look at its administrative
habits. Any slovenliness or looseness in procedures, any
mistakes or soft spots in organization, will be paid for in
lost markets abroad and lost jobs and salaries and profits at
The third and last of the ideas that I propose to place
before you has to do with the desirability of pressing on
with increased programs of international assistance to the
less developed countries of the world. The Canadian government, supported by the Canadian people, has over the last
ten years taken an active and enlightened part in the programs of technical assistance and economic aid. The present
government is continuing and expanding that program.
Through the United Nations, the Colombo Plan, and in
direct help to countries in need, Canada has contributed a
fair share to the efforts that are being made to assist these
countries in their struggle toward economic and social
Having said this, however, let us not exaggerate what
has been done. Canada has not improverished herself, has
not even added appreciably to her rate of taxation by what
has been done to help other countries. If every adult Canadian would contribute the equivalent of the cost of one
cocktail a month the Canadian contribution to the technical
assistance programs of the United Nations could be multiplied sixty times! The cost of the Canadian contribution to
the Colombo Plan is less than half the cost of cosmetics
purchased annually by Canadian women—and, sometimes
at least, produces more gratifying results! So let us avoid
any excessive degree of self-satisfaction over our "sacrifice"
in this field.
Now let me place the argument for continued foreign
aid on a purely selfish basis. Here, perhaps, we can find the
most useful historical analogy in the record of our own
country over the last sixty years. In speaking to audiences in
the United States I have put it to them this way:
"To the north of the United States is Canada with
seventeen million people. To the south, Latin America with
about two hundred million. Every year Canada buys from
the United States almost as much as docs the whole of Latin
America. This is not the result of any peculiar virtue
enjoyed by Canadians. It is the direct consequence of the
fact that in the last fifty years Canada has gone through a
tremendous period of economic and social development.
♦Rhys M. Sale, president of the Ford  Motor Company   ot Canada.
In 1900 Canada's purchases from the United States were
about $75 million. In 1960 Canada will buy in your country
approximately $4,000 millions worth of goods and services.
In 1900 Canada was a weak, insignificant, badly administered, under-developed, agricultural community. Today
that country is one of the larger industrial and commercial
powers. The change has come about in part because of
Canada's natural resources (which are no greater, however, than those of some of the presently underdeveloped
countries), in part because of the mobilization of domestic
and the attraction of foreign capital, but above all because
Canada has had the benefit of technical assistance, both
public and private, from the United States, Great Britain,
France and other countries, and has been able to help itself
because of the help it has received from abroad.
"If by the use of technical assistance and the provision
of development capital changes similar to those which have
take place in Canada could take place during the next half
century in even a small part of the underdeveloped areas of
the world the commercial results in the United States and in
other industrial countries would be of fantastic proportions.
"Let there be no mistake about the practical, dollars
and cents, commercial value of this program."
Now in talking to you and in concluding what I have to
say tonight let me make it clear that in my opinion it is not
of course enough to place this program of international aid
on a commercial and practical basis. There is a higher and
better justification. Most of us believe that the purely
negative policy of building constantly greater armaments
is not, in itself, good enough for a people who profess to be
guided by the spirit of Christianity. We believe that some
constructive and generous policy is an imperative need. One
great aspect of such a policy is to be found in the program
of mutual aid.
The program was started and is being carried on not
only because it strengthens the cause of peace, and not only
because it holds out the promise of fantastic commercial
profits. Its real motivation is found in the fact that it is the
right thing to do. We in Canada have been born and have
grown up in an atmosphere of freedom and democracy; we
have been nurtured in the principles of Christianity.
We should not, we cannot, remain passive in comfort
while two-thirds of the people in the world—men and
women and little children with needs and emotions and
hopes like our own—suffer unnecessarily from ignorance
and hunger, from illness and injustice. While they are in
bonds none of us can be truly free. In aiding them we are
raising ourselves to a higher level of human conduct.
Two thousand years ago a very great man, in speaking
of the people of his day who really practised their religion,
"I was an hungered and ye gave me meat,
I was thirsty and ye gave me drink,
I was a stranger and ye took me in,
Naked, and ye clothed me,
I was sick and ye visited me,
I was in prison and ye came unto me."
Today in modern Canada, and elsewhere throughout the
world, it is only to the extent that we translate these words
into the realities of current practice within and between
nations, that humanity can move toward that distant but
imperative goal of peace and decency and hope fulfilled for
all men everywhere on earth.
Let us not fail to do our part.
17     U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE The secrets of the sea
are being revealed by scientists
working at U.B.C.'s Institute of Oceanography
The publicity and attention which has
been given to space exploration in the
past decade often leads the layman to
conclude that the universe is the last
great frontier for scientific exploration.
Nothing could be farther from the truth
and Canadians in general, and British
Columbians in particular, have an example of an unexplored field right at
their doorsteps.
I refer to our oceans—those bodies
of water that cover about 71 per cent
of the earth's surface and affect our
lives to a greater extent than most people
realize. Nor should it be supposed that
oceanographers are primarily interested
in academic problems. The results of
much of their research have practical
How can a mill dispose of its waste
without affecting the local fishery?
Where should a sewage outlet be placed
to avoid contamination of beaches? What
determines the production of feed for
salmon in the sea? How fast is the delta
in front of the local river advancing?
Answers to these questions would be
useful to many coastal communities; they
certainly are to most communities on
the Canadian coast. These are the kind
of problems which face scientists in Canada's oceanographic groups at the present day. The object of the Institute of
Oceanography at the University of British Columbia is to prepare graduate
students to design and carry out research
programs aimed at answering such specific questions as these, as well as to
carry out research on most scientific
problems  concerned  with the oceans.
The field of oceanography has developed in the last hundred years in
the application of our knowledge of the
laws of the basic sciences to attempts to
understand the oceans. The physicist is
interested in circulation, the geologist in
sediments, the biologist in the effect of
the sea as an enviroment on the plants
and animals in it. The Institute of Oceanography is the centre at the University
of British Columbia for such scientific
study of the  sea.
Prior to 1949 Canada had oceanographic groups on the east and west coasts
associated with the Fisheries Research
Board. These groups studied the ocean
with the object of answering practical
questions of interest to fisheries and to

staff of the department of physics and

naval operations. The Defense Research
Board in 1948 suggested the possibility
of starting oceanographic work at a university to carry out fundamental research
and to introduce students to the field.
After discussions, and finally as a result
of a recommendation by the National
Conference of Canadian Universities in
1949, it was decided to make a start in
oceanography at the University of B.C.
The Institute was formed as a part of
the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the
first courses were given in the fall of
The first active staff member was
W. M. Cameron, a graduate of U.B.C.
in zoology, who had worked with the
navy as an oceanographer during the
war. After doing his doctoral work in
physical oceanography at Scripps Institution in California he returned to the
Pacific Oceanographic Group and from
there came back to U.B.C. The present
writer, after a year at Scripps, returned
to U.B.C. in 1950 to share the load of
courses and direction of graduate students. In 1951 M. Kirsch in chemistry
started work in this aspect of oceanography. In 1952 R. F. Scagel, also an
alumnus of U.B.C, returned from the
University of California to work in
marine botany as a staff member of the
Institute, and in 1953 W. H. Mathews
in geology became associated with the
group. In 1955, W. M. Cameron returned to the Defence Research Board
and in his place came R. W. Stewart
from the Pacific Naval Laboratory to
develop and apply his interest in turbulence to the ocean. Initially the Institute
was a headless body, operating under
the direction of the president's committee on oceanography under the chairmanship of W. A. Clemens. In 1953
Dr. Clemens was appointed director of
the Institute and served in this capacity
until 1958 when the present writer succeeded him.
Despite an increase of interest in the
practical aspects, due to military demands
for information during the war, the field
of oceanography remained relatively obscure until the mid-50s when a wider
interest began to develop in various parts
of the world and particularly in Canada.
Some indication of the growing interest
may be gathered from the fact that at a
meeting in Seattle early this year there
were representatives of thirteen groups
now working in oceanography in the
Pacific Northwest alone.
The developing interest in the field,
together with strong support from Dr.
Cameron in Ottawa, resulted in 1959 in
a block term grant of $90,000 per year
from the National Research Council for
the development of oceanography at
U.B.C. This grant was given initially for
three years, but with every expectation
that it will be continued. With this very
practical encouragement it has been
possible to start building up the staff
and  research  program  of the  Institute.
In assembling the staff, one of the
facts to be borne in mind is that an
oceanographer usually works as a member of a team. Though he may specialize
in one science he must be acquainted with
the fundamentals of the other sciences.
Therefore, to be adequate the staff of the
Institute must have representatives of
all the marine sciences. With this in mind
several members have recently been
added to our staff. The first was B. M.
Bary, a zoologist from New Zealand
who has worked in South Pacific, Antarctic and North Atlantic waters. Early
this year, A. E. Cockbain, a geologist,
arrived from England. R. M. Burling,
also from New Zealand, will be joining
us in May to work in physical oceanography, and negotiations for a staff
member in chemistry are in hand.
It may be mentioned at this point that
all the staff members are also associated
with the department of their basic
science, and that the same is true for
the students. The Institute accepts graduate students only. They register in the
department of their basic science, and
their academic program and research
are directed by the appropriate staff
member. Up to the present time, fifteen
students of the Institute have graduated
with the master's degree and four with
the doctorate.
An important part of the Institute's
work is to carry out research. At an early
stage it was decided to concentrate effort
on the coastal and inlet waters of British
Columbia. The large runoff of fresh
water from the rivers gives rise to an
oceanographic environment which has attracted considerable interest in recent
years. The effect of the fresh water flow
through the inlets in the surface layer
gives rise to a circulation in the deep
water, and one of the objectives is to
obtain a full understanding of this and
of its effect on the marine environment.
In building up a background of information the cruises of the Institute have
taken staff and students into almost every
inlet in the British Columbia coast from
the Indian Arm to Portland Canal. These
cruises have been made in the oceanographic research vessels maintained by
the Royal Canadian Navy and made
available as part of its support for oceanography. The first cruise of 3000 miles
in 1951 was made in C.N.A.V. Ehkoli,
and subsequent cruises have been made
U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE      18 A variety of scientific equipment is used by U.B.C scientists
in their investigation of the oceans. At left a bottom corer is
about to be lowered to the floor of Bute Inlet to collect
samples.   The   center  picture  shows  a  scientist  readying  an
instrument which will measure the speed and direction of
currents. The picture at right shows a net used to collect
plankton, the microscopic organisms which are a food source
for fish.
in Cedarwood, Whitethroat and Oshawa.
The visits to the inlets provide opportunities for research by the staff, and for
experience and training in oceanographic
research methods for the students. A
typical day on such a cruise starts at
about 7 a.m. and includes measurements
of water properties, meteorological observations, collection of plankton and
bottom materials. All these activities
continue until the evening. Chemical
analysis of the water for salinity and
other dissolved materials and plotting
the day's data keep some of the party
busy for two or three more hours while
others plan the details for the next day's
work. The night might be spent at anchor
or in steaming to the scene of the next
day's operations. Such cruises last from
a few days to several weeks and in recent
years have totalled about eighteen weeks
per year.
Another type of work involves round
the clock measurements of currents from
the ship anchored in mid-inlet for a week
at a time. Such operations tend to be
somewhat tiring and tedious, but are
necessitated by the variations due to the
diurnal character of the tidal and wind
driven currents. Such "current stations"
are never popular with the ship's company who do not have the stimulus of
the new data obtained to offset the
tedium of lying at one place. There was
one occasion when a party from the crew
decided to relieve the monotony by a two-
day expedition up the Orford River in
Bute Inlet. Only three hours later they
were back on board, their small boat having overturned in the rapids. Their equipment was gone and the leader returned
with nothing but a pair of swim trunks
and a cap!
Although oceanographic cruises in
these latitudes are not the deck chair
iaunts which one's colleagues are apt to
suggest, all who take part admit that there
are compensations in the impressive
scenery of the coast and the quiet nights
at remote anchorages.
The research programs under way at
present cover many branches of marine
science. The physical side includes studies
of surface and of deep water circulation,
internal waves at different depths below
the surface, and of mixing between fresh
and salt water. One of the recognized but
not yet fully explained aspects of the latter process is that salt water mixes upward into the surface fresh water from
the rivers, but the fresh water does not
mix downward significantly. Laboratory
studies of turbulence are a part of the Institute's program and bear directly on
the mixing process. Measurements of the
interaction between currents and waves
are also being carried out. Studies of the
distribution of seaweeds along the coast
have led to relations between the distribution of species and of water properties,
and indicate that information on average
conditions may be obtainable from the
types and location of seaweeds. Partly as
a result of these investigations the University herbarium now possesses an unrivalled collection of marine algae of the
coast of the north-east Pacific. Sampling
of bottom materials has shown that the
most common material in the inlets is a
fine grey mud formed of rock flour
brought down by the rivers from the
glaciers. In the coastal regions other
materials are found, and an investigation
of foraminifera has just been commenced.
These minute animals are influenced by
water temperature and the distribution of
these shells in bottom sediments may give
information about the climatic history of
the region. The zooplankton, larger
drifting animals, are also influenced by
water properties and are being studied as
tracers in the water movement. They are
the second link in the food chain in the
sea. The first is the phytoplankton, small
drifting plants which absorb light energy
and use it to manufacture carbohydrate
from the chemicals in the sea water. The
zooplankton form the principal food for
the fish populations which form a boundary of the biological oceanographer's
Although basic research is the prime interest of the Institute, it has contributed
to applied studies in the local regions. At
an early stage in its development it helped
with the studies of the circulation and
water properties in Burrard Inlet and off
the Fraser River for the Vancouver and
District Sewage Board. More recently it
has helped with studies of bottom currents in connection with the laying of
power cables, and with investigations of
cooling water problems for a thermal
power plant. Further afield, Dr. Cameron
organized two oceanographic expeditions
to the Beaufort Sea in the Arctic under
the Defence Research Board, and was
senior scientist for a subsequent U.S.
expedition in the Arctic.
Canada is becoming increasingly conscious of the potential of the sea both as
a source of food and as a possible source
of minerals. The study of sea ice and of
the possibilities of navigating through it
is also being pursued. The Bedford Institute of Oceanography on the east coast
has recently been formed in the department of mines and technical surveys and
under its director, Dr. W. M. Cameron,
an intensive study of Canadian Atlantic
waters is planned. This group and the
other professional oceanographic groups
in Canada all have a growing demand
for men to work in this field and one of
the chief duties of the Institute of Oceanography at U.B.C. is to prepare students
to do so.

Jean Erdman, well-known U.S. dancer-
choreographer, is returning to the University of British Columbia as guest director of the summer school of the dance for
the second consecutive year. During the
six-week course from June 27 to August
5 she will endeavour to give students a
thorough background training in the arts
considered essential to the full development of a serious artist.
Miss Erdman, who holds a top position
among dance educators, was born in
Hawaii where she had an early introduction to the cultures of India, China, Japan
and Polynesia. She studied ballet at the
American School of Ballet, Spanish dance
with Jose Fernandez and Japanese dance
at the Hitsamatsu School.
Her program at U.B.C. this summer
will include the art and science of movement, dance technique, music study, design and creative composition and production. Folk dances of Moldavia,
Russia, the Ukraine, Scotland and Ireland
will be featured in a course on national
dance styles. Climaxing the school of
dance will be a recital by Miss Erdman
sponsored by the Vancouver Festival
Society. Other special events will be a
lecture demonstration and a series of five
evening master classes.
Assisting Miss Erdman will be Karen
Geiger, New York dancer with Miss
Erdman's company; Helen Goodwin, coordinator of the dance school; Welton
Marquis, head of the U.B.C. music department; Don Jarvis, Vancouver artist;
Karl Kobylansky, of the Ukranian People
Association, and Hugh Thurston, folk
dance expert.

be Robert Fowler, deputy high commissioner for the United Kingdom in
Ottawa; Dr. Carl Rosberg, department
of political science, University of California, Berkeley, and His Excellency the
Belgian ambassador to Canada. Sessions
will be devoted to the study of significant
developments currently taking place
south of the Sahara and north of the
Union of South Africa.
From August 28 to September 2nd, the
eighth annual United Nations high school
seminar will be held on campus. Co-sponsored by the Vancouver and Victoria
branches of the United Nations Association, study will be concentrated on the
United Nations as an organization.
The well-known Canadian writer and
broadcaster, Lister Sinclair, will again
conduct a series of noon-hour interviews
with visiting artists of the Vancouver
Festival, and guest instructors at U.B.C.
during the summer school of the arts.
Open to all summer school students and
the general public, the interviews will
be held in room 106 of the Buchanan
building Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and
Friday at 12:30 p.m. from July 18 to
August 5. A fine arts lecture series will
take place on four consecutive Thursday
evenings in July, while the public affairs
series will be held on four consecutive
Tuesday evenings in July.
Dancer Jean Erdman
will instruct again this year
Exhibitions of sculpture and poster art
will be two highlights of the summer
school of arts and crafts from June 27 to
August 12. The third biennial outdeor exhibition of sculpture, which is being held
in association with the North West
Institute of Sculpture, will be opened
officially by Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie on
July 6. Included among the prizes will
be a $600 award from U.B.C.
An exhibition of maquettes, which are
small studies of the sculptors' completed
work, will take place in conjunction with
the biennial. The winning sculptor, whose
maquette will be selected by a panel of
judges, will have one year in which to
complete the full-scale piece of sculpture.
It will then be erected by the pool in
the court of the Buchanan building. An
award made available through a $2,000
Canada Council grant will be presented
to the winner.
The poster exhibition from June 27 to
August 20 will feature works from 48
countries including examples by
Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Cherte and
William Nicholson. It is being presented
in association with the Vancouver International Festival.
Guest artists, who will supervise classes
in painting, drawing and sculpture, will
include Louis Bunce, distinguished west
coast painter; Cecil Richards, associate
professor of art at the University of
Manitoba and Don Jarvis, instructor of
painting and drawing at the Vancouver
School of Art. The children's art program will be conducted by John Dober-
einer, director of children's art for the
extension department.

Mr. Bernstein on August 15 and 16.
For the third year in succession the
city of Vancouver will be the scene of
a festival of the arts rated by music and
drama critics as the most important
annual event of its kind to take place on
the North American continent.
The Vancouver International Festival
(July 22—August 16) combining, as it
does, the talents of some of the world's
finest artists in a continuous program of
symphony, opera, drama, dance, recitals,
exhibitions and films, has focussed a
great deal of attention on the Pacific
coast city since 1958 when the first
Festival  was launched.
Six countries will be represented in the
1960 Festival. Perhaps the most unusual
contribution comes from behind the
Bamboo Curtain in the shape of the
ancient and justifiably famous Peking
Opera — not an opera at all in the
Western sense of the word, but a dazzling
array of acrobats, dancers, pantomimists,
singers and instrumentalists richly costumed and incredibly disciplined.
England's contribution to the Festival
will be Benjamin Britten's musical version
of the Chester Miracle play "Noah's
Flood." This is an opera in the true sense
of the word making use of more than
seventy child actors and musicians as well
as a number of adult artists. Italy and
Japan combine to produce another major
Festival attraction; Puccini's "Madame
Butterfly," one of the most famous works
of the great Italian operatic composer.
The United States makes several contributions to the Festival program this year.
Perhaps the most momentous is the appearance of the New York Philharmonic
Orchestra, 108 musicians conducted by
Leonard Bernstein. The orchestra will
give two performances, August 15th and
Mark Twain, the famous author and
lecturer, will visit the Festival in person
—reincarnated by a thirty-four year old
actor, Hal Holbrook, whose uncanny impersonation of Mark Twain as a seventy
year old man won him unanimous
acclaim on Broadway in 1959.
From Pittsburgh comes the noted conductor William Steinberg to lead the
Festival Symphony Orchestra in two concerts, one with soloist Kerstin Meyer, the
Swedish mezzo-soprano, and the other
with the Vancouver Bach Choir in the
Schubert Mass in A Flat and the Bruckner Te Deum. The Claremont Quartet,
a leading American string quartet, will
present two interesting and varied recitals.
The distinguished Mexican conductor
and composer, Carlos Chavez, will conduct the Festival Symphony Orchestra
with the newly discovered Bolivian
violinist Jaime Laredo. Chavez's own
Symphony   No.   4   will   be   played   and
Laredo will perform the Sibelius Violin
Canada, and in particular British
Columbia, will be well represented. The
opera cast is all-Canadian as is the
Festival drama, "The Deadly Game," an
adaption of Friedrich Duerrenmatt's
novel "Traps." The suspenseful plot unravels itself in the home of a retired
judge and builds to a most unusual
twist ending.
The noted Canadian pianist Glenn
Gould will perform on three occasions,
once with the Festival Chamber Orchestra conducted by Louis Lane, the young
associate conductor of the Cleveland
Symphony Orchestra; the second time in
an all-Schoenberg concert with Kerstin
Meyer, and again in his own piano
recital performing works by Byrd, Bach,
Beethoven and Berg.
The Vancouver Cantata Singers conducted by Mr. Hugh McLean will perform Vaughan Williams' Mass in G
Minor  as  well  as  several  other works.
The unusual group of Vancouver musicians known as the Cassenti Players will
perform one concert under the direction
of bassoonist George Zukerman. This
group performs works for wind instruments and wind and strings and received
high praise from visiting music critics
last year.
For the past two years one of the
most important features of the Festival
program has been the Vancouver International Film Festival. This year it will
begin on July 11th and continue until
July 23rd, preceding the larger Festival
by ten days. The best films of more than
twenty-five countries will be shown and
awards will be given to the winners in
several categories.
This brief outline of the third annual
Vancouver International Festival should
serve to impress the reader not only with
the size, variety and importance of this
event, but with the fact that it had its
first beginnings on the campus of the
University of British Columbia, inspired
and supported by such individuals as
Miss Dorothy Somerset, and Dean G. C.
Andrew. Other members of the University faculty now serve on the board
of directors of the Vancouver Festival
Society and the University continues to
work in close co-operation with the
Festival. The Festival performers are
made available as lecturers to the University Summer School of the Arts. The
Vancouver Festival Society donates
scholarships to a number of students in
the University Summer School of the
Arts each summer; and this year the
University campus will be the scene of
a two-day Canadian Music Festival sponsored by the Vancouver Festival Society.

the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, BERNARD
LAW MONTGOMERY, Knight of the most noble Order
of the Garter.
This University recognizes that there could be no citation so apt, so immediately forceful in its power to evoke
the memory, as the one he himself chose, The Viscount
Montgomery of Alamein. It recalls that moment in history
when in the desert of North Africa two Generals and two
Worlds opposed each other in the struggle for freedom.
Trusting in the power of Divine Providence and the courage of his men. confident of his own skill, devoted to his
country's purpose, General Montgomery fought our battle,
defeated our enemy, and brought hope and inspiration to
free men everywhere.
Alamein kindled a flame in the hearts of British
soldiers, and under his inspired leadership, saw the beginning of that triumphal march through the African
desert, through Sicily and on to the gates of Rome.
As Commander of the famous 21st Army Group, the
Field Marshal continued to display those qualities of brilliant leadership and unswerving devotion and faith,  from
the shores of Normandy across the Rhine to the  City of
Berlin, each battle adding to the measure of his greatness.
From despair and subjugation came hope and freedom.
From victory came peace and reconstruction.
There is much to be related, Mr. Chancellor, of his
accomplishments in the task of reconstruction in the postwar years in Europe, and as Chief of the Imperial General
Staff, and of his contribulion to the nations of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization. But our hearts and minds
refuse to be drawn away by these achievements from our
memory of this master of the battlefield at Alamein.
As history has associated Marlborough with Blenheim,
Wellington with Waterloo, so this great General will ever
be linked with that turning of the tide of war—the victory
of Alamein.
Sir  Winston  Churchill   addressing  the   heroes  of  that
encounter said this:
"In days to come when people ask you what you
did in the Second World War, it will be enough to
say: 'I marched with the 8th Army'."

During the past three months the University of British Columbia has received
letters from organizations and agencies
and private individuals representing more
than 10,000 citizens of the Province urging construction of a fine arts centre on
the campus.
In an interview President N. A. M.
MacKenzie expressed pleasure at the
wijespread support for such a development. "We have had more letters and
petitions from individuals and groups
from all parts of the province urging us
to begin construction of the fine arts
centre, than we have had for any other
single proposal affecting the University in
recent years. These representations come
from serious and responsible citizens in
every part of the province, who are anxious to see the University provide facilities for these important and essential
areas of education. I am greatly encouraged by their interest and support," the
president said.
"Music, painting, theatre, and the fine
arts in general are among the most significant influences on the welfare of
man, and if we are to become a balanced,
mature and sensitive nation, then the
greatest attention must be given to fostering the growth and development of the
creative arts," he said.
The development of a fine arts centre
has been a matter of concern to the
University for many years. "To date,
however, the University has not been
able to provide the fine arts with accommodation because of the continuing
pressure for funds to develop the more
'practical' and traditional features of
higher education — the sciences, the
humanities, and the professional faculties," Dr.  MacKenzie added.
The president stressed the fact that
art is not solely for a small group of
citizens. He pointed to the Vancouver
International Festival, the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and developments in
U.B.C.'s Summer School of the Arts as
clear evidence of a quickened interest
on the part of the community.
"There is a great danger that modern
man, through science and technology,
and the resulting concentration of population in large, industrial cities, may gain
the physical world but be unable to live
normal and healthy lives. The acquisition
of material possessions and creature comforts holds a large place in the life of
most Canadians, and my fear is that we
will be unable to cope with our new
environment and circumstances." he said.
The president pointed out that a fine
arts centre at the University would do
much to enrich the life of every citizen,
and to provide healthy outlets for their
emotional needs and desires. "We hope to
provide opportunities for large numbers
of people. Good music, good theatre, and
good art should play a role in the daily
lives of each of us. Too much of what
we see and hear is second-rate, demanding neither mental effort nor sense of
discrimination, and contributing little of
value to any of us. I am convinced that
people will enjoy the fine arts and benefit

greatly from them. But we must provide
the opportunities. The establishment of
a centre such as the one envisaged for
the University will help immeasurably to
this end," he said.
The centre which U.B.C. plans to
build at the north end of the campus
will provide buildings for the schools of
architecture and music and a theatre for
the newly created department of drama.
An art gallery and teaching museum or
"museum of man" will also be part of
the scheme.
At present, the school of architecture
and the theatre department are housed
in wooden army huts which were brought
to the campus at the end of World War
II to accommodate the veteran enrolment. The architecture school, which
annually carries off some of the top
prizes in national competitions, has operated in these wooden huts for the past
thirteen years. The department of theatre,
headed by Miss Dorothy Somerset, stages
its productions in a 123-seat hut named
for a former member of U.B.C.'s English
department, Professor Frederic Wood.
The school of music occupies a building formerly used as a testing laboratory
for forest products and the present anthropology museum and art gallery use
facilities in the basement of the U.B.C.
library that are needed for library purposes. All these departments will be
grouped together in one centre under
U.B.C.'s building plans. "Our aim," says
President MacKenzie, "is to serve the
community — the province of British
Columbia — in this important field, and
to provide the qualified teachers in the
arts who are so badly needed throughout
the province."
U.B.C. will get half of the total cost
of the fine arts centre from the Canada
Council which provides funds to Canadian universities for development in the
fine arts, architecture, and certain other
spscified fields.
U.B.C. Athletic  Director
"Thunderbird" athletic teams have
successfully concluded their first season
of participation in the Western Canadian
Intercollegiate Athletic Union. Participating in eleven sports, our University
teams won six Conference championships
—football, basketball, curling, tennis,
badminton and swimming. This seemingly
over-all dominance by U.B.C. has not
discouraged the sister Universities of
Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba.
Rather, it has given them a new set
of standards to aim at, and we shall
certainly find the competition keener in
the   future.
The W.CI.A.U. also re-affirmed its
desire to enter into the formation of a
truly National Intercollegiate Athletic
Federation, which would embrace Canadian   universities   from   coast   to   coast.
U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE     24 Steps are now being taken to establish
this Federation with Dean A. W. Matthews of U.B.C. and Dr. W. Orban of
Saskatchewan named as delegates to the
national meeting this summer in Kingston. Dean Matthews is also chairman
of a national committee to investigate
the possibilities of intercollegiate competition in football, basketball and ice
hockey. If the same keen interest is displayed by the eastern universities and
their unions, then it will not be long
before the objective of national competition will be realized.
At its annual meeting, held in Saskatoon in April, the W.C.I.A.U. established
certain rigid requirements which member
universities must comply with in order
to be in good standing. Effective by the
1961-62 season, universities must compete in all of the following "core" sports:
football, basketball, ice hockey, badminton, cross country, curling, swimming.
This means that Manitoba must enter
football and swimming, and U.B.C. must
enter ice hockey. In addition to this
the member universities must enter three
of the following sports on a tournament
basis: golf, tennis, volleyball, wrestling,
gymnastics and fencing.
As far as we are concerned ice hockey
will pose our biggest problem. Without
a rink on the campus, and with ice
time at a premium locally, it will be no
easy task to enter into an intercollegiate
schedule. The solution, of course, which
we are all hoping for, is a winter sports
arena on the campus, with facilities for
ice hockey, curling and indoor swimming.
Until such facilities are available the development of ice hockey will have to
be  curtailed.
The spring sports—golf, tennis and
baseball are still in progress, with all
three teams away on an intercollegiate
exhibition schedule against Pacific coast
universities. The results of these matches
will not be available in time for publication in this  issue.

back as head coach. A group of some
forty oarsmen has been training faithfully since last fall. The squad will be
cut to twenty by mid-May, and these
athletes will form the competing crews
for the Intercollegiate meets against
Oregon and Washington, and the Western
Intercollegiate Rowing Championships at
Long Beach. If the eight-oared crew
reaches a satisfactory standard of performance it will not have to enter
Canadian Olympic Trials in the east,
as the fours must do. In any case the
chances of University of B.C. crews
representing Canada at the Rome Olympics are very good.
A summary of the men's athletic program results is given below:
The University of British Columbia
senate has approved a recommendation
which will lengthen the first term of the
University for periods varying from a
few days up to a full week during the
next ten years. The first day of lectures,
except in the case of certain professional
programs, will be the third Monday in
September from now on.
John Parnall, U.B.C. registrar, said the
new arrangement will help balance the
two terms and meet the frequent requests
from faculties advocating an equalizing
of the terms. In the past ten years the
first term at U.B.C. has varied in length
from: 12 weeks, two days up to 13 weeks.
In the next ten years the first term will
vary in length from 13 weeks, two days
up to 14 weeks.
The second term at U.B.C. has varied
in the past ten years from 16 weeks, four
days up to 17 weeks, two days. In the
next ten years the length of this term
will vary between 16 weeks, four days
and 17 weeks. The senate has also
approved a proposal that the spring congregations in May fall on the last
Thursday and Friday of the month rather
than in the third week as at present. Mr.
Parnall said the change of dates would
allow the registrar's office more time to
adjudicate marks and prepare graduation
lists for approval by senate.

Be Objective...
In our opinion, investment should
be objective. It should have a
purpose and once the purpose is
clearly denned, then securities
can be selected to accomplish
that purpose.
If you want to gamble, good
luck to you, but . . . you should
be prepared to lose and surprised
to win. Go in with your eyes
wide open.
If you want to speculate . . .
then take a calculated risk. Know
why your selected securities
should be worth more, calculate
how much more, and in roughly
what period of time. Plan your
future action in the event that
you are right . . . and also in the
event that you are wrong.
If you want income . . . design
a fund for income. If you want
long-term growth and are willing
to take the risks . . . design a
fund for long-term growth.
If you want a balanced fund
to take care of contingencies and
provide a chance for reasonable
income   and   growth   .   .   .   then
i design your fund that way.
Plan your investment fund to
accomplish your purpose . . .
be objective in what you do.
Planning programmes and
helping investors be objective is
part of our job. Perhaps we can
help you.

An authentic Japanese garden, complete with tea house, Japanese bridges
and a series of small lakes covering
almost an acre, was opened at the University on May 3.
A Japanese landscape expert, Kanno-
suke Mori, has lived at U.B.C. for more
than a year planning and supervising
construction of the three-acre garden
which is intended as a symbol of Japanese-Canadian goodwill. Everything in the
garden, from entrance gate to the rocks
over which an artificial waterfall tumbles
follows generations of tradition established by Japanese landscape artists.
Dr. John Neill, director of landscaping,
says Japanese gardens are meant to be
replicas of nature brought down to
human scale with the rocks representing
mountains and the trees forests. The
project will be an integral part of the
U.B.C. botanical garden, says Dr. Neill,
and a valuable teaching aid for students
interested in plant science.
Dr. Mori, the garden's designer,
searched B.C.'s lower mainland for weeks
before finding the exact shape and colour
of rock for the waterfall. He finally
located what he wanted near Harrison
Hot Springs. The doll size tea house in
the garden is a gift from the Kajima
Construction Company of Japan who
also sent two carpenters to assemble the
building which will contain scrolls, vases
and utensils for use in the traditional
Japanese tea ceremony.
Interested Japanese businessmen and
members of the Japanese-Canadian Citizens' Association have contributed about
$25,000 in money and items which are
included in the garden. In addition to
the tea house, contributions which have
come direct from Japan are an authentic
entrance gate, a garden shelter and hundreds of trees and shrubs. A master
flower-arranger and a master instructor
in the tea ceremony were sent to demonstrate their arts during the opening ceremonies.
The garden, located on Marine Drive
opposite President N. A. M. MacKenzie's
home, will be called the Dr. Inazo Nitobe
Memorial Garden, and the largest of
seven stone lanterns in the garden has
a plaque on it in his memory. Dr. Nitobe,
a Japanese internationalist, was a former
secretary-general of the League of
Nations. He died in Victoria, B.C., in
1933 while on a speaking tour.
Miss Jeri Wilson, left, of Kelowna, secretary of the 1960 graduating class at the
University of British Columbia, presents a cheque for $3500 to UBC's president,
Dr. Norman MacKenzie. The cheque is a gift from the graduating class to the UBC
library for the purchase of research material. At right is David McGrath, president
of the graduating class.
The 1960 graduating class of the
University of British Columbia has come
to the aid of the current campaign
to raise funds for the U.B.C. library.
A cheque for $3500, presented to
President N. A. M. MacKenzie, will be
used to purchase research material for
the new division of special collections in
the U.B.C. library. The Friends of the
Library, an organization formed in 1956
to encourage support for U.B.C.'s library,
is currently conducting a campaign to
raise  $50,000.
The graduating class cheque was presented to President MacKenzie by David
McGrath, president of the 1960 graduating class, and Miss Jeri Wilson, class
secretary. "The gift," said Mr. McGrath,
"is a token of appreciation from the
graduating class for the help that was
received from the library staff during
our  years as  undergraduates."
U.B.C.'s librarian, Neal Harlow, said
the gift would be used to purchase research material as it becomes available.
"Such material," he added, "is vital if
we are to have a first class library and
expand our offerings in the field of
graduate studies."
The campaign to raise funds for the
library is in line with a recommendation made by librarian Neal Harlow in
his annual report to the senate for the
1958-59 term. In his report Mr. Harlow
said that non-University funds for the
acquisition of special materials should
be actively sought from outside sources,
preferably on an annual basis.
Funds collected during the coming
appeal will be used as a reserve to purchase special material in a given area or
used as opportunities to acquire materials
occur. Mr. Harlow said alumni, library-
minded friends and users, industries and
firms, organizations and clubs and interested persons in and outside the province
would be quietly approached.
"We are not planning to ring doorbells
or make a noisy appeal," Mr. Harlow
added. "Annual grants will be emphasized
in order to assure that important research
collections can be picked off for graduate
use here whenever they appear." U.B.C.
alumni will be urged to contribute to the
fund by earmarking their gifts to the
Alumni annual giving program.
Mr. Harlow said the U.B.C. library can
reach major league status only if there
is continuing support. "This year we
stand third in size in Canada, second in
rate of growth and first in expenditures
on collections," he said. This contrasts
sharply with our position in the North
American field, K:. Harlow continued,
where we are 65th in size, 40th in annual
growth rate, and 29th in funds for book
purchases. U.B.C.'s library can only be
described as "middling" if it is compared
to libraries at 110 other North American
institutions, Mr. Harlow added.
Further information regarding the
campaign can be obtained from the University librarian, the Alumni Association
or from Mr. Kenneth Caple, president of
the Friends. All gifts made to the appeal
are tax-deductible.
The University of British Columbia
has been able to add an outstanding
collection of Indian artifacts to its anthropology museum as a result of a
donation from Dr. H. R. MacMillan.

When is a Right a DUTY?
Today everyone enjoys as his birthright, privileges which once were
the possession of only a few. But his birthright also includes
responsibilities with respect to the privileges he enjoys.
Education is one of the privileges which carry responsibilities.
All of us have the responsibility, for example, of helping to ensure
that every young person has the opportunity to complete his
education, and of seeing that the quality of instruction at our
schools and colleges is maintained at a high level.

age of 70 after serving as Indian agent
and missionary in the Queen Charlotte
Islands and Prince Rupert area for more
than 40 years. Dr. MacMillan donated
$10,000 to the University for the purchase
of the collection from Mr. Collison's
daughters, Miss Joyce Collison and Mrs.
A. M. Budinich, both of Vancouver.
James Garner, curator of U.B.C.'s
anthropology museum, says there are a
number of items in the collection which
would be difficult to duplicate anywhere.
All the items in the collection are from
the Haida and Tsimshian cultures of
northern B.C. "This is a collection of
particular value to U.B.C," Mr. Garner
said, "because up to now we have had
very little material representing these
northern tribes.''
The rarest item in the collection is a
dance shirt made from pieces of Chilkat
blankets which were cut up and given
away at Indian potlatches. The individual
who could acquire enough pieces to make
a complete shirt would be regarded as
enormously wealthy, Mr. Garner explains.
He added that to his knowledge there
are no other examples of such a shirt
Other valuable items in the collection
include several eating dishes, each carved
from a single piece of wood, and 12
argillite carvings by the Haida Indians of
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Argillite is
a heavy, black, shale-like substance found
only in the Queen Charlottes. Half the
carvings are totems ranging in size from
one to two feet in height. Other unique
pieces    are    eating    dishes    inlaid    with
mother of pearl and a pedestal bowl
which depicts an Indian shaman, or
priest, riding on the back of a flying
U.B.C.'s president, Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie, paid tribute to the generosity of
Dr. MacMillan in contributing the funds
necessary to purchase the collection.
"Across the years Dr. MacMillan has
been a good and generous friend of the
University," Dr. MacKenzie said. "His
rich and varied experience in the forest
industry, his wisdom and his good counsel have been of great value to me in
directing the growth and development
of the University."
The first full-time undergraduate program in Canada to train students for
work in the field of recreation will start
in the school of physical education at
U.B.C. in September, President N. A. M.
MacKenzie has announced.
The Senate has authorized the school
to change its name to the school of
physical education and recreation, the
president said.
Object of the new program will be to
train "general practitioners" in the field
of recreation, according to Professor
Robert Osborne, director of the U.B.C.
school. "There are now more than 275
recreation commissions in B.C. alone,"
Prof. Osborne said, "and there is a need
for trained people to develop community
Students will take about 20 per cent of
their course work in professional recreation and the balance in the social sciences.
All will be required to take a fundamental course in either music, drama or
"In this way," Prof. Osborne said, "we
will turn out students who will understand the cultural as well as the athletic
resources of the community and will
appreciate the significance of all leisure
time   activities."
Field work for the new program will
be carried out in cooperation with the
Vancouver board of parks and recreation.
There are few other campuses in North
America which have such a wide variety
of resources for carrying out such a
program, Prof. Osborne said. "We conceive of recreation as being much broader
than just programs of sport and U.B.C.
will provide us with a unique laboratory
for training students," he said.

31       U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE As a result of the recent deplorable
treatment of South African negroes, the
students' council at U.B.C. sent a formal
protest to the government of South
Africa condemning not only the principle of apartheid, but also the murderous methods used to enforce this
policy. It was felt that this action could
be most strongly supported by a more
tangible protest and consequently the
students' council is presently attempting
to establish a scholarship for a South
African negro student.
The scholarship, if possible, will be
used to bring a student to U.B.C. for one
complete year of study, and will include
all transportation, tuition, and living expenses. If such a plan is not feasible due
to the policies of the South African government then the scholarship will alternatively be established within the Union
of South Africa.
Funds are presently being solicited
from service and labour organizations
as well as private individuals within the
province. The students themselves will
put up some $500 and it is hoped the
much needed outside contributions will
make  up the additional  $1000  required.
Another fund raising campaign which
took place recently on campus was in
aid of the victims of the Agadir earthquake disaster.
In answer to an urgent plea from the
Moroccan Students Association, requesting both funds and medical supplies, a
drive was held in late March to try and
aid the earthquake-torn population of
the Agadir area. Contributions as a result of the one hour "blitz", supplemented by Students' Council, amounted
to nearly $500.
The Spring general meeting of the
A.M.S. was held with the usual commotion caused by the engineers The end
result was that all but three of the
nimblest male members of the newly installed students' council were dunked in
the lily pond.
Despite the post-meeting clowning
many important issues, including the
separated housing question, were put
before some 2000 members of the student body.
In addition to granting the rowing

Dr. Leonard Mitchell (right) vice-president of the Canadian pharmaceutical firm of
Frank W. Horner Ltd., visited U.B.C. recently to present a plaque which will hang
in a room in the $3,000,000 campus medical development now under construction.
The firm makes an annual donation of $500 to the department of pharmacology
for the purchase of journals. Accepting the plaque is Dr. James Foulks, head of
U.B.C.'s pharmacology department.
One of Canada's most distinguished
dermatologists, Dr. Donald H. Williams,
has been appointed head of a new department of continuing medical education
at U.B.C. The president,  Dr. N. A.  M.
MacKenzie, said the new department
would start operations on July 1 as a
joint program between the faculty of
medicine and the University extension
Dr. Williams will give up his Vancouver practice to head the new department,
according to Dr. J. F. McCreary, dean
of the faculty of medicine at U.B.C. "We
naturally count ourselves very fortunate
to have obtained the services of a man
of Dr. Williams' calibre to head this
new  project,"  Dr.  McCreary  added.
The purpose of the new department
will be three-fold, Dean McCreary said.
Its first task will be to work with various
medical organizations to expand and
coordinate the courses available for
practising physicians. A second function
of the department, Dean McCreary said,
would be to attempt to improve internship and residency training programs by
working with the hospitals involved.
Finally, Dean McCreary said, the department would establish multi-discipline
courses to prepare doctors for advanced
degrees in medicine.
Dr. Williams' first task, Dean McCreary said, would be to visit a number
of universities in the United States where
successful departments of continuing
medical education have been established.
Dr. Williams has been associated with
U.B.C. since 1940 as a lecturer in preventive medicine, education and social
work. He was appointed clinical associate
professor in the U.B.C. medical school
when the Faculty of Medicine was
formed in 1950.
He is a graduate of the University of
Manitoba, where he received the degrees
of bachelor of science and medicine in
1931, and the University of Minnesota,
which granted him the degree of master
of science in 1937. Dr. Williams had a
brilliant undergraduate career, winning
the Isbister scholarship for the highest
aggregate marks in medicine at the University of Manitoba in each of his undergraduate years.
On graduation Dr. Williams was
awarded the University gold medal for
the highest standing in the first four
years in medicine at Manitoba and the
Chown Prize and Gold Medal in both
surgery and medicine. Following his
graduation he lectured at Manitoba, the
University of London and Johns Hopkins

That's why you should study maths, son"
A close look at Canada today will quickly convince
any young man that mathematics will play an important part in his future. Everywhere about him
he will see the handiwork of the professional
engineer whose training, based on mathematics, is
contributing to this country's vast expansion. For
wherever big things are going on, there you will
find the engineer . . . whose vision and initiative
make him a key man in Canada's progress.
In the coming years, Canada's continuing development will offer the challenge and reward of
engineering careers to thousands of young men.
For them there will be the satisfaction of participating in an important and skilful profession and the
deeper satisfaction of contributing to the strength
and prosperity of our nation.
For over 65 years, Canadian General Electric has
engineered and manufactured much of the electrical
equipment that has played such a vital role in
making this country one of the most highly electrified in the world.

The B.C. Electric has made a grant of
$15,000 a year to U.B.C. for the establishment of a professorship in the department of electrical engineering. President
N. A. M. MacKenzie, in announcing the
grant, said the board of governors had
expressed their thanks to the company
for their continued support of research
at U.B.C.
A condition of the gift, the president
said, is that the professor appointed to
the chair shall have sufficient time free
from teaching duties to direct graduate
studies and initiate and engage in an
active research program in the field of
electrical engineering. The grant will
be  reviewed  after the  first  three years.

U.B.C.   ALUMNI    CHRONICLE     34 Professor Frank Noakes, head of the
electrical engineering department, said
the chair is being established in recognition of the role that research plays in
industrial development. Prof. Noakes
said the development would make possible expansion in both the graduate
teaching program and research into basic
electrical engineering problems.
Dean David Myers, head of the Faculty
of Applied Science, said the generous
grant would enable the department to
attract a man of outstanding attainments
to occupy the new chair. Dean Myers
said the appointment would have far-
reaching significance for industry in British Columbia. "The grant," he said, "is
recognition of the fact that major developments in engineering arise from research in universities and the quality of
graduates coming from Canadian engineering schools." New industry, in particular, will benefit, Dean Myers said, since
the mutual exchange of information
between universities and industry makes
fertile ground  for  invention.
Artist Molly Boback, standing, toured the province recently for the extension department giving instruction to amateur painters in more

department officials said the project was one of the most successful

Canada's Leading  Brand  of Seafoods
Forty years ago, Professor Sir
Walter Raleigh said that the style of
most American text books is so
outrageous, you cannot see the
thoughts for the weeds. This savage
and unfair attack has provoked a
reply from Dr. George Helix, Dean of
Values and Professor of Special Prose
at Sunken Mountain University,
North Dakota. In our next issue we
hope to devote a whole article to the
inalienable right of college professors
and their students to use whatever
prose seems fanciest to them, especially in the realms of sociology, psychology, journalism, advertising, politics, art, and educationism . . . otherwise known as the Seven Lamps of
the Virgin Mind.
In this article we will frequently
back our arguments by references to
Dr. Helix's wonderful book, "Helix's
Critique of Pure Cant." But in the
meantime we urge such graduates as
can read at all to buy the book for
themselves, and not wait to see it
summarized on television or in the
Pre-Digest. It is the most rewarding,
exciting and soothing work to come
from  Dakota in many a week.  Con
sider, for example, Dr. Helix's patient
reply to the obstreperous Raleigh:
"Weeds? The richer the soil, the more
you will observe the plentitudinous-
ness of the indigenous flora. The
ever-richer soil of the college mentality has induced a proliferation of
concepts, and of a special language
in which to express them. We might
well call this the Carboniferous Age
of the Intellect. Certainly, some of
these weeds will die down, but they
will turn into mental coal and petroleum, giving light and heat to the
future." Hats off to Helix! Yay, team!
The late Bernard Berenson declared
last year or so that there is really
no such thing as folk art, in any sense
that need be taken seriously. What
is called folk art is merely a series
of increasingly degenerate copies of
older works by gifted individuals.
This outrageous theory was refuted by
a unanimous vote of no confidence in
Berenson, passed by the University
Hill Folk Lovers Workshop. A further vote, also unanimously folk-
voiced, declared it to be the Workshop's belief that Berenson himself
had never existed as an individual.
Investigators at Point Roberts College have discovered that many students are dancing only four or five
nights a week. "It is the irregularity
of this pattern which disturbs the
students," said Dr. Janus P. Quag-
meyer, Dean of Co-ordination. "Dancing itself does nothing but good. It
teaches people to get along together,
which is the greatest good of all.
Also, it envelops the healthy mind  in
a  healthy  body.   But  if  they  could
only dance seven nights a week, this
would   make   for   a   smooth,   steady.
unbroken    rhythm    and   a    sense   of
"Underseas exploration by geologists, zoologists, and other seachers
who are only doing their duty . . .
that is one thing," said Dr. Dexter J.
Manifold, head of the school of
Sunken Studies at Eastwestern U. "But
to call anything down there interesting and beautiful and weird, just because it is under water . . . this is
faddish hypocrisy. I know plenty of
things that are much admired while
submerged, and yet if their admirers
saw the same things on dry land they
would merely yawn. Something very
fishy  is  going  on."
What Do You Know For Sure, Buster?
DON'T be too fast with that answer. There's a problem
lurking here that Aristotle and Plato didn't lick, to say
nothing of I. A. Richards, A. J. Ayer, Korschybski and
other seekers after the light. But you can know something
about quite a few things, especially about the world today,
if you're a regular reader of The Sun. Subscribe to The

hint to husbands:
When the family's away for the summer, there you'll be,
alone at last . . . just you and your dirty dishes. What better time
than right now, this Hummer, to invest in a modern, automatic
dishwasher! Just whisk dishes into the unit and electricity does the
rest, washes and dries them automatically. The kitchen stays
tidy, dishes stay in one piece, and you'll stay out of hot water!
Something else, too. Your wife will enjoy the work-saving
convenience of an automatic dishwasher all year 'round. She'll
have more time for other tasks around the house or garden.
And for years to come, she'll praise the summer day you visited
your appliance dealer - for the latest in a portable or
built-in automatic dishwasher. Make it soon!
