The Tools to Finish the Job
Every day, from the Peterborough Works of
Canadian General Electric Company, come
hundreds of synchronous, induction and
direct-current motors. These workhorses of
modern industry go into immediate action to
drive the machines that make guns, tanks,
shells, ships, planes, everything in whole or
part that adds up to victory.
Almost a sixth of a mile in length is the
huge machine shop at Peterborough Works.
As   one   walks   its   long   avenue   one   sees
precision machines, geared up to war-time
effort, building motors of every description, for
every purpose; generators for power companies;
equipment for steel mills; drives for mine hoists
... all means lror making "the tools to finish
the job."
For nearly half a century Canadian General
Electric engineers and craftsmen have been finding ways to make electricity more useful. Today,
they are applying electricity to the task of defending the benefits that it has helped to create.
G-E research saves the Canadian public hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

A well-known woman graduate, Mrs.
Tarrant Guernsey, the former Isabel
Russell is a prisoner of war in Germany. Mrs. Guernsey, who worked in the
geology department of U.B.C. before
she married a geologist from Rhodesia
was a victim of Nazi sea havoc.
She was aboard the now historic
ZamZam when it was sunk by a German raider in May. Mrs. Guernsey,
with the rest of the passengers was
taken to a women's concentration camp
at Liebenau, in south Germany. In September she was brought to Berlin with
other British women prisoners.
At the German capitol she is technically free and is living in a hotel on
150 marks or $60 a month provided by
the Canadian Government.
Mrs. Guernsey wrote a graphic story
for the last edition of the Chronicle
describing her life in South Africa.
She was on her way home there when
the ZamZam was torpedoed.
One of U.B.C.'s most popular graduates, Ralph Henderson, known as
"Hunk" who graduated in '36 recently
made newspaper headlines.
Hunk joined the Royal Canadian
Air Force in June, 1940. In April of
this year he went overseas as a pilot
and from then until August was one
of the flyers whose bombs harassed
Germany and occupied Europe by
In August he was shot down over
Germany and his friends spent anxious
days until he was reported safe, but a
prisoner of war.
"I am fine and healthy, uninjured
(luckily) and being treated quite
well," he has since written to his family-
"We are under the jurisdiction of
the German Air Force and in a chival
rous sort of way we are being treated
well. We get enough to eat alright.
Our own cooks do the cooking.
"I am with two Canadian officers
that I knew in Canada, we will remain
together. We can receive as many letters as are sent to us so write often."
Lieut. George Kane, another U.B.C.
graduate is in a German concentration
George was reported missing after
the Dunkirk evacuation but he has
since been revealed to be a prisoner of
war. He was studying at the University
of London when war was declared and
joined an English unit.
Hugh Keenleyside, Arts '20, like Robertson,
holds the rank of Councellor in the Department. His most important duties are
those of Secretary of the Canadian Section
of the Permanent Joint Board of Defence.
Looking Backward on U.B.C. in World War 1
I have just come in from a Saturday
afternoon drive through the University
grounds, where I have been watching
the hundreds of young undergraduates
taking their military training. The
years roll back and I sit musing of the
early days of the last war, when the
O.T.C. was born.
No funds, no uniforms, no parade-
grounds, except a cold, draughty, old
warehouse on Hamilton street, no orderly room (do I hear some "old
sweat" say "Thank the Lord!"), No
rifles, no armoury, no instructors except overworked officers from the permanent forces who co-operated by rendering their services after doing their
daily duties in the regular Army. However, "the splendid spirit of the cadets
and the untiring efforts of the officers"
welded the O.T.C. into an organization
that had "cause to be proud of its war
record, and had a tradition of hard
work and self-sacrifice."
I know that that same fine spirit is
being evidenced on our campus today.
Many of the old brigade have sons who
are receiving their training under the
vastly improved conditions that exist
today, and to us there is a thrill in realizing that from the small beginning
there has developed such an efficient
In looking over the "Record of Service," U.B.C. 1914-18, we find the
names of 697 members of the University or of the McGill Colleges of British
Columbia, and of these 78 laid down
their lives.
If we could only turn back the years
and stage this year's Homecoming
rugby game between the present stalwarts and those of twenty-five years
ago! Of course, it would be English
rugby, as the Canadian game had then
not even been considered on these far-
western shores.

Although the "Record of Service"
show that U. B. C. men were to be
found in all branches of the service,
most of the enlistments were in the
P.B.I. The Royal Flying Corps was in
its infancy, and it was only   in   the
latter years of the war that an opportunity was offered to young Canadians
to receive the necessary training in
The first mass enlistment from our
institution comprised the group who in
the spring of 1915 left as re-inforee-
ments for the famous "Princess Pats"
(P.P.C.L.I.). There were about 30 in
all, and their leaving was the "raison
d'etre" for many rousing social functions held on the top floor of the "cow
barn,'' which at that time was the main
building of the University (McGill College), situated at the corner of Tenth
and Laurel. Many of them did not return, but of those who did even the
younger graduates may have heard of
"Eb" Crute of soccer fame, Gordon
"Irish" Craig (Mayor Telford's secretary), Lyall Fraser and Ralph Mac-
Pherson, past presidents of the Vancouver and New Westminster Boards
of Trade.
Other group enlistments were to the
Queen's University Battery later in
1915, and the Western Universities
Battalion in 1916.
Graduates of war years who are
again rendering service with the military services at the U.B.C. are "Johnny" MacLeod, "Dutch" Eckardt, Art
Lord and Gordon Scott.
The spiritual welfare of the people
of the province is being looked after
by many gentlemen who were active
in militia work on the campus and in
active service during the last war.
Some of those coming to mind are Sam
Galbraith, Joe Smeeton, Frank Buck
(not the one you see in the movies),
Bryce Wallace, "Walky" Walkin-
shaw, Bill Willan, Theo de .Pender,—
(the two latter are again on active
service as padres).
Harry Letson is another original who
has been active in militia work since
his cadet days at King Edward High

The gala atmosphere of dances and
football games once again will greet
alumni who come back to the U.B.C.
campus on Homecoming week-end, but
to everyone who knew this little world
before the shadow of war darkened
the green-elad campus the great change
which has taken place here will be
obvious. U.B.C. has entered upon its
third war-session.
Undergraduates have not shirked
from the added burden which war has
placed on their shoulders. Indeed, they
have welcomed the opportunity which
is theirs to do everything possible for
our country's victory. Men and women
alike have assumed assigned and voluntary tasks with growing intensity
from year to year.
During the first war term in 1939 enlistment in the U.B.C. Contingent of
the C.O.T.C. more than tripled. Training was purely voluntary then. Canada did not fully realize the importance of the struggle she had entered.
Last year, however, universities
across Canada fell into step with the
government's increased war-effort and
compulsory military training for all
male students came into force. Over
1,500 men at U.B.C. paraded weekly in
either the C.O.T.C. or basic battalions
and climaxed their year's training by
attending a two-week army camp at
Nanaimo in May. Co-eds also did their
part by organizing into sewing and
knitting circles under the Women's
Undergraduate Society's direction and
joining first-aid classes.
Compulsory training for men is in
Archie Paton
full swing again this fall. Lois Nicholson, W.U.S. President, has enlarged
upon last year's war-work program for
co-eds and daily sessions are held in
the Red Cross knitting rooms in Brock
Hall. Every student is now doing his
or her bit towards the university war-
The newest building on the campus,
still under construction, stands as
mute evidence of the change which has
taken place in three short years. Built
by funds collected from the pay of CO.
T.C. cadets since 1928, the Armouries
will be officially opened next month.
The increased amount of time which
undergraduates have to give to military and Red Cross work (men get six
hours compulsory training per week)
has necessitated the drastic cutting of
other extra-curricular activities. Sports
have been especially affected by the
Inter-collegiate sport has been abandoned by U.B.C. as at most other Canadian colleges. Even teams entered in
city leagues have had to discontinue.
Rugby and football have been the two
sports most seriously hit, although a
four-game Canadian football schedide
for this fall was approved by the Council on Physical Education and Athletics last week.
Basketball is now the only major
sport which has kept U.B.C. in the athletic spot-light. Last spring the Thun-
derbirds ended the most successful
season in history by winning the Canadian Senior A championship from Toronto, and prospects for another good
year look bright as the hoopers start
practises this week.
Social events, too, have been restricted because of the war. Many formal
functions which in past years were
held downtown have been frowned upon as not befitting a university at this
time, but to make up for them students
have turned to informal parties in the
undergraduates' own building, Brock
The Brock was officially opened in
February, 1940, and named as a memorial to Dean Reginald Brock and his
wife who were killed in an aeroplane
crash on September 27, 1935. Since
it opened, Brock Hall has become the
centre of student extra-curricular activity and is now the scene of women's
war work as well as the social rendezvous.
Despite all the changes and restrictions, however, the enrollment at U.B.
C. continues to increase, and this year
is greater than ever before. The university is doing more than just carrying on—it is going ahead.
Players Club to do
"Man Who Came To Dinner"
Players' Club Alumni are carrying
on in spite of war. Last spring, under
the direction of Garfield King, Elmer
Rice's unusual "Adding Machine" was
produced in the University Theatre
May 13 and 14.
It was hailed by dramatic critics as
one of the most polished amateur performances to be produced in the city,
with, beyond doubt the most original
and spectacular stage settings.
Appearing  in  the  production  were
Lorraine Johnston, Lacey Fisher, Mary
Moxon, E. R. Chamberlain, Esme Cayd-
zien, C. E. Taylor, J. W. B. Shore, Rodney Poisson, William Rose, Dave Macdonald, Cyrol Chave, Margaret Ecker,
Joan Wilson, Josephine Kennedy,
Elizabeth Norrie, Estelle Chave, Jean
Salter, Douglas Dawson, R. C. Harris.
This fall the Alumni Players will
bring "The Man Who Came to Dinner" to Vancouver for the first time.
The play is being cast and production
dates will be announced later.
Greek Letter Societies
Support Red Cross
Fraternities and sororities on the
campus staged a mammoth Red Cross
dance last year that netted the University's Red Cross campaign approximately $2,000. Sale of dance raffle
tickets formed a large portion of the
net proceeds.
The following night, a "mixer" was
held in Brock Hall, admission: one war
saving stamp. Proceeds, $125, was sent

There's some obscure tradition that the editor of a
publication such as the Chronicle should garnish his or her
concoction with an editorial.
It would seem however, in this case that that is unnecessary. The above head has merely been put in to fool you,
in case you are orthodox enough to want cream with your
The editorial "we" (who includes divers individuals
who helped cook up this pamphlet at forty-five minutes
passed the eleventh hour) feel that the Chronicle should
be self-expressive.
On Page 1 you will find the Homecoming program,
proof that in spite of hell-let-loose the world over, university
graduates have cool enough heads and stable enough emotional balance to "Carry On," to borrow a term from the
propagandists. Letters from the branches and the short personal items are eloquent witnesses that graduates of the
University of B.C. are shouldering their way into the world's
Should any one ask: "What are university men doing
for Canada's war effort?" the answer is in newspaper headlines every day. The pages of the Chronicle devoted to men
on active service are proof that U.B.C. 's sons aren 't willing
to smugly leave the protection of their homes and their
homeland to someone else.
On Active Service
By hundreds they've put on uniforms themselves, some
as privates, R.C.A.F. ground crew or craftsmen. The luckier
ones have commissions. Most of those whose names you read
there gave up brilliant futures, careers they liked because
they felt they were needed. The university trained man or
woman is intelligent enough to know that no matter what
their devotion to their civilian jobs or their homes, each
one must play his part in defending these institutions,
whether in uniform or civilian war service.
When the women's active services were formed, graduates of the University of B.C. were among its first recruits.
There arc gaps on these pages, men and women we
should have mentioned but didn't. The gaps are eloquent
too. They express the complete lack of interest many graduates show in their university and the other men and
women they worked and played with on the campus. It's
too much bother to them to even write a postcard to the
Chronicle telling what they or their friends are doing.
But, thanks to the Alumni executive and an industrious
band of workers, the Chronicle has come off the presses.
Thanks go to Janet Walker, to Phyllis Nemetz, to Norman
Hacking (all extremely busy people) for being willing to
give up precious bits of time in the making of this graduate
After the annual meeting, there will be a new Chronicle
editor, thank goodness. Please give him or her your support
and co-operation if you want to see another issue of this
magazine that is our only link with a carefree past.
Tuum Est,
Letter to the Editor
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—"Heartiest congratulations on
your last issue of the Graduate Chronicle. It is far superior
to anything the Alumni Association has previously produced, and I earnestly hope that you will be successful in
your plan to carry it on as a quarterly. Surely the U.B.C.
alumni are now numerous enough and loyal enough to support an alumni publication that will compare with the
handsome periodicals of other universities.
"As for myself, I am teaching English in the University
of Southern California and do some writing whenever I
can shake off the lassitude natural to a sub-tropical climate.
The record of my nefarious doings is included in the current
issue of 'Who's Who in America.' I wonder if I am the first
U.B.C. graduate to be admitted into that august volume?

During the 1940-41 Alumni Association year there has
been an increase in both the annual membership fees paid
and in the new life memberships paid.
In 1939-40 there were only 195 annual membership fees
paid, this was increased during the past year to 215. Needless to say there are a large number of alumni who have
paid one or more annual fees in previous years but have
been negligent in keeping up their yearly payments. Perhaps
they do not realize that they are granted a life membership
on the completion of ten consecutive years of membership.
Approximately six hundred members are delinquent in this
respect. If you are one, and wish to continue receiving the

your correct name, etc., and mail with one dollar to the
In 1939-40 twenty-seven people paid up their life memberships, and in 1940-41 thirty-one have paid life memberships to date. This brings the total life membership to 227.
The Alumni Association is growing gradually and
growing at a faster rate year by year. Correspondingly the
activities and services are increasing and improving. How
much we grow and what we accomplish depends largely
what assistance you give your executive both financially
and otherwise. Let's keep progressing.
B. A. ROBINSON, Treasurer.
The Alumni fees are one dollar a year or ten dollars
for life membership. Yearly fees paid for ten years in
succession comprise life membership. On completion of life
membership a blue and gold membership card is issued.
These fees are used to defray Chronicle publication and
mailing costs together with organization expenses of stationary, membership records, etc., Homecoming and the
Alumni tea.
Fifty percent of all ten dollar life memberships are
set aside in a savings account to be used for bursaries,
emergencies or other items at the discretion of the membership.
Fees are augmented by profits from the annual Christmas dance and from sale of advertising space in the Chronicle. We can only do what we can finance, so please pay
your fees each year and save us expense of individually
billing your account. THE     GRADUATE     CHRONICLE
ONE of the earliest graduates of the University of B.C., was recently appointed
brigade major of the 6th Infantry Brigade
overseas. He was first president of the Alma
Mater Society.
Graduates and undergraduates of the University of British Columbia have joined the
armed forces in ever-increasing numbers
during the last year.
At least 300 graduates are now believed to
be on active service, and their number is
increasing daily. Women graduates are joining the forces, too, with the establishment of
women's auxiliary units.
Casualties are inevitable, and as each new
name is added to those who have given their
lives for King and Country, more and more
graduates join up to replace those who have
made the supreme sacrifice.
The many friends of Pilot Officer Geoffrey
de Fylton Mackie of Vernon, were shocked
last February to learn that he had been
killed when his training plane crashed near
Belleville, Ont.
He graduated in May 1939, with second
class honors in English and history. He was
born at Vernon on April 5, 1919, where his
father is principal of the Vernon Preparatory
While on the campus he was a member of
the Players' Club and belonged to Alpha
Delta Phi fraternity. He played inside three
for the 1939 English rugby team, and also
played badminton.
On March 21, Flying Officer Charles Peers
Davidson, 27-year-old son of Mrs. Campbell
Davidson and the late Dr. Campbell Davidson of Qualicum Beach, lost his life as the
result of air operations with the Royal Air
He received his early education at Shaw-
nigan Lake School, and graduated from the
U.B.C. in 1935. He was a member of Zeta
Psi Fraternity.
A more recent casualty was Pilot Officer
J. A. Quick of Squamish, who was killed in
an air accident overseas. He was 23, and
attended school at Squamish, before attending U.B.C. His father is superintendent of
the P.G.E. Railway.
Graduates throughout the province were
shocked to hear that Pilot Officer Ralph
Henderson, basketball star, was missing in
air operations over Germany, but were relieved to hear later that he is a prisoner of
war. He went to England in April, and was
serving as a navigator in the R.A.F. bomber
