Dear Sir:
It is feared that the Department of Education
intends further reduction of academic requirements
for University Entrance. The proposed two-year
minimum foreign language requirement should be
of interest to all U.B.C. graduates. Readers would
be wise to ponder the following questions:
1. Why should U.B.C. not set its own entrance
requirements, independent of Junior Matriculation
2. Enquiries reveal that at least three years of
foreign language study are required for admittance
to any first-class Canadian university (with the
major exception of the Faculty of Agriculture in two
universities). Why should our students be put in
an inferior position in applying for entrance to
other Canadian institutions?
3. Since the high schools already have the privilege of graduating students by presentation of High
School Graduation certificates, in what way would
retention of University Entrance standards discriminate against those unsuited to further academic
work? It is true that President Truman's commission on Higher Education would advocate a university degree within the reach of everyone. But is it
undemocratic to suggest that a student has a right
only to as good an education as he can be given, and
is capable of receiving? I would agree with President Smith of the University of Toronto who maintains that entrance requirements should be stiffened,
and that while there should be equality of opportunity for those who have ability to pursue higher
education, "higher education is not necessarily an
inalianable right for every boy and girl." He reaffirms that "higher standards for getting into and
for staying in university are essentially in the national interest."
4. Why do we not work towards establishment
of vocational schools and technical institutes for
those wishing to specialize in such fields, rather than
reducing the general educational background of students entering U.B.C?
5. How can U.B.C. expect to maintain the quality of its graduates and remain a first-class institution by the adoption of such a policy of reduction
of standards?
6. What will your own U.B.C. degree be worth
after a few years of reduced entrance requirements?
Surely these are questions which should be considered immediately by all graduates: and Now is
the time to act.    Yours very truly,
(Mrs. W. Orson Banfield.)

Dear Sir:
My attention has been called (by myself) to Stu
Keate's interesting memoir in your last issue. In
correcting one of your writers he has himself erred
on two or three small points. Allow me to observe
... in the most delicate manner in the world . . .
just to hint . . . that he's as crazy as ten pounds of
Irish bedbugs.
The fact that The Ubyssey once (once, not "always") called my show by a name of its own does
not mean that this was the correct name of the
show. Far from it. Anything but. Au contraire.
The Ubyssey can't even name itself. The nickname
it used for our show was used, for one year only,
by Christie Fletcher to annoy me personally, or so
he begged me to believe.    Not that it matters.
It is untrue that all our four shows contained
pep talks. Our whole object was to make our shows
as nearly pointless as possible, and we usually succeeded. Certainly, the Rugby Club (of which I was
never a member) imagined Ted Clark and I were
trying to sell tickets for them, but we children of
darkness were wiser in our generation than those
children of light, and for us the show was the thing.
Oddly enough, this policy sold more tickets than
pep talks ever did. At one meeting we sold 1000
tickets. I don't think the house held many more
people than that.
No limerick ever appeared in our script. I've
heard limericks tried on the stage only once and the
effect was terrible. I've written limericks only
once (The Royal Canadian Artillery, for the use of),
and they were terrible in another sense.
About cluttering up a revue with orchestral
numbers from the stage. We thought the students
could hear orchestras at any other pep meeting, if
that would soothe them, and we wanted to avoid
sameness. We also wanted no flagging in pace . . .
nothing would have killed the pace quicker. We
wanted an hour or more of laughter. Of course,
some of the orchestras from town were really pretty
funny, at that, and so were their admirerers, but
you can't work irony too deep in a good-natured
little show. It would be rather rude. Besides, it
is apt to misfire.
Well, I am glad somebody remembers those
shows incorrectly. In that way they may seem better than they really were. Perhaps my subconscious
is helping me that way too. My conscious tendency
is to blush and say "We were very, very young."
But Old Man Subconscious, bless his serious-
minded little heart, tells me "Those were the days!"
And with all this talk about the shows, I begin to
think he's right, until I look at the one surviving
script and start blushing again.   I am glad, on the
whole, that the other three scripts were stolen by
members of The  Ubyssey staff, performing their
duty as self-denying servants of the public press.
Yours faithfully,
DAVID BROCK, Arts '30.

So much is happening at the University of British Columbia and so many of its graduates are doing exciting things and attaining interesting jobs
that the old bogey of the Chronicle editor—getting
enough copy—has given way to an even more difficult task of trying to sift out the most important
and interesting stories that tumble into this office
between issues. . . .
It's got to the point where Bob Elson doesn't
get a mention in these pages even though he's just
been appointed managing editor of Fortune magazine . . . but then Bob has a habit of winning so
many important posts, that, what is unusual in
others is only ordinary in him. . . .
We thought the story of Dr. Jim Pyle, first appearing in the Vancouver Sun, was a natural for
the Chronicle and so with that paper's permission
and the author's, it appears on Page 9 of this
issue. . . .
The three-page feature on staff retirements was a
necessity . . . the whole tone of our University was
largely set by the people retiring and the University
owes them a great deal for their invaluable intellectual contributions to our Alma Mater . . . personally
your editor will never forget his interview with
Dean Buchanan just before joining up and the tremendous insight he had into the workings of a
young undergraduate's mind . . . there are countless
stories of his kindliness and also of the others, Dr.

The Graduate Chronicle Dr. Jim Pyle U. S. Magazine Hero
(Reprinted by Permission of the Writer and
the Vancouver Sun)
Mounted police, fur trappers and war pilots are
no longer the only Canadians known to American
boys. A 33-year-old Canadian scientist, born in Calgary, educated at University of British Columbia
and at McGill, has been selected as the hero of the
Number One success story in an adventure magazine for teen agers published by General Electric
Company at Schenectady, N.Y., the biggest electrical company in the world.
The magazine is distributed every other month
to the teen age sons and daughters of all company
employees, to stimulate an interest in electricity as
a career. And the success story which features the
first issue is the story of Dr. James (Jim) Pyle, former B. C. English rugby star who became one of the
youngest laboratory directors in America.
Supervising the work of an entire staff of chemists and engineers in the plastics laboratories in
Pittsfield, Mass., Jim is also consultant on the U.S.
Government's Manhattan project, where the atomic
bomb was born and where work is currently being
done in the field of atomic energy, engineering and
Virtually unknown in Canada, Jim Pyle, Canadian, is the magazine idol of close to 100,000 American boys. Still in his early 30's, he is on the verge
of becoming one of the outstanding scientists in the
United States. His Canadian recipe for success, according to his magazine biographer, is a balanced
combination of sport and study, plus the ability, or
good fortune, to select instructors who are authorities in their line.
Jim Pyle was born in Calgary but spent his early
years in London while his father was fighting in
France in the Canadian Army. Scarcely five years
old, he already had a well-developed curiosity bump
and was one day rescued with difficulty by his
mother as he stood out in the street watching a German Zeppelin which was giving Londoners a preview of the blitz that was to come more than 20
years later. After the war the Pyles returned to
Canada and headed for Vancouver.
During the next few years the Pyles covered the
province pretty thoroughly .settling for varied periods of time in one town or another all the way from
Vancouver to Prince Rupert. Jim attended eight
different schools and played on a variety of soccer
and rugby teams.
In school Jim liked mathematics, science and history. He played all sports but his favorites were
English rugby, soccer, baseball and lacrosse, in that
order. After high school he headed for University
of British Columbia, first, he says, because it was
close to home, and second, because it had an excellent reputation in the scientific field.
He chose what for most students was the toughest course on the calendar, the honors course in
chemistry, and breezed through with a total of 72
credits when only 60 were needed. With three more
credits he would have won his Master's degree at
the same time as his Bachelor's.
During his college days Jim had spent one full
year on some of the chemistry that works in the
flotation of ores. Armed with this get-rich knowledge one summer he headed for central British Columbia and began gold mining. He and some old-
time miners pumped water from the Thompson
River at the rate of 5000 gallons a minute, washing
down the gold-bearing soil and gravel. This turned
out to be a tough way to earn a living, however, and
Jim gladly went back to college to get his doctor's
degree. During this period he won a scholarship to
McGill and headed east for Montreal.
One of the experts who did most to shape his
pupil's future life was Dr. Hibbert, a world authority on cellulose and lignin. He directed Jim Pyle
towards research in the field of plastics and that
eventually led him to General Electric and Pittsfield,
In 1939 he began his industrial scientific career.
He worked on a wide variety of projects and four
years later, two weeks after celebrating his twenty-
ninth birthday, he was appointed laboratory director, the youngest in the country.
During the war, as researcher and laboratory
director, he helped turn out some 3000 different war
jobs, including a rocket launcher which the American air force used to blast enemy armor. Today he
is the husband of a former U.B.C. college classmate,
the father of three sons, owner of a new house and
an amateur carpenter. And he's one of the
best known Canadians south of the border, rivalling
King of the Royal Mounted.

Page 11 Five Weil-Known U.B.C. Personnages Retire
Total 150 Years Service To U.B.C.
Part of the soul of the University of British
Columbia will be missing when the Freshman class
registers on the campus this fall. For retiring from
positions at U.B.C. are five individuals who have
gained recognition for the service they have given
to our Alma Mater and for creating that intangible
quality—call it spirit—which for 30 years has made
our University a pleasant place to attend and remember.
High on the list of U.B.C. creators is Dr. Isabel
Maclnnes, head of the Department of German since
1946. Dr. Maclnnes joined ths staff of the University 32 years ago—right from its earliest beginnings.
vShe became an instructor in German at the old McGill University College and from the point of seniority has the longest association of anyone connected
with the University.
Famous throughout the Dominion as a Shakespearian authority, Dr. G. G. Sedgewick leaves the
University after 29 years. Dr. Sedgewick joined the
University staff in 1918, three years after it opened,
and with the exception of a short period of time
spent winning his Ph.D. at Harvard and five years
at St. Louis University, he has been with the University of B. C.
Regarded by the many undergraduates with tremendous affection is retiring Dean Daniel Buchanan, since 1928 Dean of Arts and Science. A witty
speaker, Dean Buchanan has long been one of the
most sought after speakers in Vancouver. During
the war he gained added favor by his kindly, sympathetic treatment of young undergraduates anxious
to "join up."
Dr. R. II. Clark came to the University in 1916
after a brilliant academic career had carried him to
many scholarships and a period of teaching in the
United States. He has been head of the Department of Chemistry since 1927 and that department's
high standing has been largely credited to him.
Mr. Angus MacLucas joined the staff in 1926 and
became bursar in 1934. There is not a graduate who
doesn't remember the good-natured bursar and the
easy way he had of extracting fees from recalcitrant
[bt. g.
Though departments of English are very new
things in the ancient world of universities, they now
exert a greater influence on the average student
than does any other department. And if the Head
of the Department happens to be Doc Sedgewick,
the influence is enormous. It is almost impossible
to have passed through U.B.C. without acquiring
something, directly or indirectly, consciously or not,
from that ever-burning personality. Of how many
professors, here or elsewhere, can we say that?
In its time, U.B.C. has possibly had a few men
deeper in scholarship than Doc ... in other departments. It has had one or too with a sharper wit,
and one or two with a kindlier humour, perhaps. It
has had one or two (not more) with broader interests, and perhaps knowing more about those interests than Doc knows about painting, music, rugby football, and all his other loves. Here and there
we may have had a better speaker . . . who fooled us
by refraining from speech. There may have been
a more gifted teacher, and a better organizer. There
may even have been, though it seems unlikely, a
better showman (in the best sense of the word).
But what is certain is this: no other professor,
among a very memorable collection, could combine
all these qualities as Doc Sedgewick did. No other
remains quite so vividly in our memories.
The late Walter Raleigh said "If I am accused
on Judgment Day of teaching literature, I shall plead
that I never believed in it and that I maintained a
wife and children." Doc maintained no wife
(though he did maintain a most charming and colourful mother), and we fear he did believe in teach
ing literature. But during his bad quarter of an
hour on that awful day, several thousands of us
will testify that he gave us an enduring love for
Shakespeare.   And if that is not a complete defence,
what is ?
We must all have been amazed at the variety
of students who developed an enthusiasm for
Shakespeare . . . tough mugs who worked their way
through college by bootlegging, flimsy-brained
little coquettes, dried-up pedants, dapper-witted
loungers, and all the rest. The merit was not all
Shakespeare's. Shakespeare is taught everywhere,
but seldom with such charm and universal effect.
Nor was the merit all that of Kitteridge, Doc's
teacher at Harvard, though Doc owed him a lot . . .
as any man owes a lot to a world-famous scholar
with whom he studies intimately. Those of us who
heard both men lecture will agree that Doc added
a good deal to what he learned at Harvard. Doc
was livelier, warmer, funnier. He had more draught
in his furnace, somehow. It is not a criticism but
something of a compliment to say he had more popular appeal. Shakespeare himself has a terriffic
popular appeal, if it is allowed to come through. Doc
not only let it through, he coaxed it through very
small holes into very unusual places. There has seldom been teaching with as little tedium, formality
and unreality.
Just as his god Shakespeare loved youth and
freshness, so did . . . and so does . . . Doc himself.
So did Schubert, his other god. Inside and outside
the lecture hall, Doc felt a friendship with his students.    There must be times when he thinks (with
Page 12
The Graduate Chronicle good reason) that he is still of their age. Nor did
he ever despise a student for mere lack of cleverness. Like the dying Napoleon who was angered
by his atheist surgeon, Doc could forgive shallow
wits or even bad manners . . . dullness of heart was
all he could not forgive.
It was this equality with youth and fondness for
youth that sometimes led him to joke a little roughly, as an equal. Troops never forgive sarcasm from
an officer, both because of public shame and because
they cannot answer back. Doc never thought of
himself as an officer, and was surprised when the
occasional student was angry or hurt. He honestly
thought we could answer back ... as some of us
did. One day a disgruntled student said "Who does
he think he is? God's brother Archibald?" And
another said, "No, he thinks he's Peter Pan. And
by gum, he may be right." If he wasn't that rather
sentimental little growth, P. Pan, at least he may
have been Puck, a better Pan than Peter. Many
hundreds of us forgave his jokes on the instant, and
others soon after, which is a considerable tribute to
Doc, not to our own virtue. And the men with a
grudge against Doc are not those to whom he spoke
most outrageously.
Few make the mistake of regarding Doc as a
mere comedian . . . and what a comedian he is, to
be sure! But also, few know how tender and delicate and serious he can be.   The fact that he hides
these qualities, to a certain extent, is itself a proof
of his delicacy. For Doc to touch your heart, you
must usually touch his first. And he commonly
takes care that you don't, unless your troubles are
very real ones. His common attitude is a good Pan-
tagruelism, "which, as you know, is a certain Jollity
of Mind, Pickled in the Scorn of Fortune." And
what could be better? God knows it is all too rare
these days.
Some professors are so busy publishing that they
do not teach very much or pay much attention to
running their departments. Doc's own Harvard
makes this mistake at times. For the sake of glory,
it says to its professors "Publish or be damned."
Doc, on the whole, has preferred to side with the
Duke, who said "Publish and be damned." He did
more important work. Not only did he turn out a
large supply of professors who do and will publish
good stuff and bad . . . there is a heavy demand for
both . . . but he gave the average undergrad a feeling of ownership in and understanding for our
greatest possession. Which is what he was hired
to do, a contract few fulfil, or can fulfil. All the
same, one hopes that on his retirement a few more
books will come out of Doc. They are inside him
all right. One certainly cannot say that when he
retires the rest is scilens (as his Boss liked to spell
it). One also hopes that they will just be signed
"Doc." We'd all know who it was. There are many
doctors, but only one Doc.

"To walk with you,
Herr Doktor, is both
an honour and a pri-
vilege," said the
young student Wagner to the learned
Doctor Faust. For
over thirty years this
line has been read to
students of German
by Dr. Isabel Maclnnes and this summer as she retires as
Head of the German
Department it takes
on a new significance
for many of us. To
have walked with
her as student and
friend has been for
thousands of students an honour, a privilege and a rare pleasure.
It is unnecessary to review the contribution
which Dr. Maclnnes has made to the spiritual and
intellectual life of the University, for that is known
to all graduates. We would like, however, to recall
some of the scenes on that walk through the years
which demonstrate our thoughts of her as a friend
. . . the Sturm and Drang MacTnnes descending like
an avenging deity upon those who, especially in the
Women's Locker Room of the old Arts Building,
forgot that these were "halls of learning"; the Lie-
der MacTnnes adding her pleasant soprano voice to
the incidental music which accompanied the earnest
work in the Red Cross Rooms; the Wandervogel
Maclnnes casting aside with abandon gown, record
book and adjective declensions and eating Wieners
(spelling, please!) on Class Picnics; the Goethean
Maclnnes; mentor and counsellor, giving advice
both stern and sympathetic to those who sought it;
the scholar in gown and hood, lending in the early
days the only touch of das Ewig-Weibliche to academic processions.
More recent graduates will add other touches to
the picture — especially the veterans who in two
World Wars owed to Dr. Maclnnes carefully knitted socks with faultless heels—her scrutiny did, we
hear, overlook one or two romantic enclosures in
the toe!—and warm sympathy and consideration for
their problems as student veterans.
We, as graduates, express our thanks to her for
her friendship, her counsel and for the high standard
of scholarship which she represents. These are for
us a source of both honour and profit. For her we
wish many more years of fruitful activity and that
moment of supreme satisfaction such as was Faust's
when she looks back over her years of inspired service so generously and so impartially rendered.

The business of
"deaning" must be
nearly the most
thankless job that a
human being can undertake. At any rate,
that's the general
story told by deans.
But Daniel Buchanan couldn't tell it
even if he wanted to
— whicl; he doesn't.
From the beginning
of the quarter-century of his deanship
to its end, he has
managed to capture
and hold the affection and gratitude of
the whole University
body — affection and
gratitude so nearly unanimous that any lapse from
them only justify the rule. As an artist in "deaning," he has made the job look pleasant and easy,
and consequently he has often suffered the usual
fate of the artist in that his pains have been taken
all too lightly. Not everybody knows how hard it
is to keep a dean's desk clear, to keep that flood-
stream of undergraduate appointments running
smoothly through his office, to keep a Faculty meeting good-tempered, to keep peace with people who
have a bone in the teeth and a chip on the shoulder.
For that matter, it is more than one man's job merely to get the monstrous U.B.C. calendar off by heart.
Yet all  this  round  of infernal  pettiness  has  been
made to seem pleasant and easy under the Buchanan touch. He never announced the terribly mounting blood-pressure which belied the appearance.
There were strict Puritans on the staff who
sometimes complained that the Dean himself was
"easy" (i.e. "an easy mark"), especially in cases
which, they said, called for Justice rather than
Mercy. But, in spite of the Puritans, Daniel Buchanan's temper and methods seemed to work out
as good a harmony between those conflicting Virtues as humanity can arrive at. Under his steady
and kindly eye, a student malefactor would plead
guilty before the charge was even laid; and then
Mercy and Justice, like lamb and lion, could lie
down together in peace. Such an incident is characteristic of Daniel's "deaning" and of the results it
It isn't really an anti-climax to end with a reference to the Dean's stories, which issued from a
never-failing reservoir and which were told with
never-failing skill and zest. U.B.C. will miss them,
as daily fare at least, and so will everybody in this
city and province. For what British Columbian
hasn't heard a Buchanan yarn and rejoiced in it?
It always had a point which applied to the immediate situation: if that was difficult, the tension was
resolved; it is was unduly solemn, the heaviness was
relieved. In fact, story-telling was one of the arts
which Dean Daniel employed as he acted in his
proper and beneficent role among men : he was born,
and he trained himself, to be a lubricator of life.
No wonder the gratitude and the affection of thousands follow him as he retires from responsibility into years, we hope, of active but untroubled happiness.

Many graduates of
the old university at
Fairview   will   learn
with   regret   and   a
certain realization of
the   passing   of   the
years, that Dr. Rob-
jert  H.  Clark,  Head
of   the   Department
[ of Chemistry, retires
\ this summer.
The high esteem
1 in which the graduates of this university are held is a result, in the final analysis, of the standard set by individual
professors. That this
high standard was
consistently maintained by Dr. Clark
is attested to by numbers of our graduates now
eminent in the various fields of chemistry and chem-
ica lengineering, who comment on the enthusiasm
for chemistry first instilled in them by Dr. Clark.
A strict disciplinarian, but kindly and considerate in dealing with the difficulties of individual students, Dr. Clark's lectures were always followed
with closest attention.
On the strictly social side, undergraduates will
miss the annual parties which Dr. and Mrs. Clark
gave in their charming home on Marine Drive. A
prominent feature of these parties was the variety
of games, all the way from table tennis to bridge,
available for the entertainment of the guests. This
love of games is characteristic of Dr. Clark, who is
equally at home on the tennis court, on the golf
course or at the bridge table.
Dr. Clark was born at Blyth, Ontario. He attended the Collegiate Institute, Hamilton, Ont., and
the University of Toronto. He graduated with First
Class Honours in Chemistry in 1905, receiving the
Governor-General's Medal for highest standing in
any Honour Course. In 1906 he received the M.A.
Degree and was awarded the "1851 Exhibition Science Research Scholarship" for study abroad. This
scholarship was renewed for three years. From 1906
to 1909 he studied under Professor Arthur Hantz
at the University of Leipzig and received the degree of Ph.D. there in 1909.
In 1916 he came to the University of British Co-

wartime services,
have been named to
high posts on the
U.B.C. staff in a list
of appointments announced by University President Norman A. M. Mackenzie.
Appointed to Dean-
ship at the university
are: S. N. F. Chant,
O.B.E., head of the
department  of  phil-
osophy and psychology, who will be dean of the
faculty of arts and science, replacing Dean Daniel
Buchanan; Prof. Walter H. Gage, assistant dean of
the faculty of arts and science, who has been named
dean of administrative and inter-faculty affairs, a
new post co-ordinating duties not within the field
of any one faculty.
To Head Departments
Named heads of U.B.C. departments are: Dr. J.
Roy Daniells ,who will succeed Dr. G. G. Sedgewick,
who is retiring as head of the department of English ; Dr. Ralph D. James, who will replace Dean
Buchanan as head of the department of mathematics.
Ontario-born Professor Chant received his B.A.
and M.A. from the University of Toronto, where he
was a professor of psychology from  1922 to 1945.
Prof. Gage, born in Vancouver and educated at
Tecumseh, and John Oliver high school and U.B.C,
will supervise in his new post prizes, scholarships,
and bursaries for the university, take care of classroom and laboratory accommodation and co-ordinate timetables.
Born in England, Dr. J. Roy Daniells, new head
of the department of English, received his education from Victoria High School, U.B.C, the University of Toronto and King's College, London.

lumbia and assisted in developing the Department
of Chemistry during the earlier years of its formation, eventually becoming Head of the Department.
Dr. Clark is the author of some fifty papers in
many fields of chemistry, but particularly in the
fields of organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
During the war he carried on much research for the
Canadian Government, particularly in the field of
explosives; most of this work, for security reasons,
will probably never be published.
Dr. Clark is far too interested in the University
to let mere retirement sever his connections with
U.B.C. and it is hoped that as a professor emeritus
he will see the ultimate development of the work
he has so worthily begun.

Dear Alums:
I graduated (M.A.) again the other day. As did
1600 other people, including the Governor-General
(LL.D.), so I didn't stand out particularly. The
Armouries was so full that hundreds of relatives
and friends of the gallant 1600 were unable to get
in. They seemed to feel that this was a hell of a
note. The fact was, however, that once you got all
the graduates and Faculty and commissionaires inside the Armouries, there was only room for a few
hundred kinfolk and the odd pot of tulips.
The day was windy and wet, and everybody had
trouble with his hood. There are only two ways of
wearing a hood. You can either let the front band
rest against your throat, giving the ceremony the
fillip of slow strangulation, or you can drape it over
your shoulders, so that as you romp up for your
degree it falls around your ankles and sprawls you,
grinning vacantly, in front of the Dean. If monks
wore the hood it must have been as a form of penitence and somebody should have told them to cut
it out.
In the Armouries they seated us very closely together, to save space and make sure that we would
all rise as one man when necessary. Since the ceremony took two hours and a half, and since we could
feel the muscles twitching in one another's thighs,
we felt obliged to make conversation with our
neighbour, even though we had nothing in common
but alphabetical order. The gentleman on my left,
1 noted in my program, had written his thesis on
"The Determination By Physical Means of Infestation in Fish."
"What's this about infestation in fish?" I asked
"Worms," he replied politely.
After this high point, the excitement tapered off
until our line rose as one man and proceeded to the
platform for our degrees. Instead of the Chancellor
rapping us on the nut with his mortar board as formerly, the men bowed and the women curtsied to
him. We then continued across the platform to the
Registrar, who handed us our diplomas. Approaching the Dean, who had already read off several
girls' names for obviously male candidates, I was
seized by the panicky fixation that I might curtsy
to the Chancellor. Or bow to the Registrar, give
my diploma to the Dean, and hit the Chancellor over
the head. My hood suddenly felt as though it were
full of papoose.
Reaching the Dean I waited dumbly, hoping he
could find my name, since I had forgotten it and
would require some time to look it up. He said it
and I was off at a lope, nodding familiarly to the
Chancellor, wrenching the diploma from the Registrar, and returning hot-faced and heaving to my
seat. Nobody seemed aware that I had been anywhere, let alone through hell.
But I now have a diploma that says "Magis-
tratum in Artium," and I'll bet that means something.
Now the snow is vanished clean,
Bo' jour, Pierre, ca vaf
Skyward point the cedar billows,
Birches pinken, poplars green,
Magenta runs the sumach tine
Pouring down the hills like wine.
Yellow catkins on the willows,
Yellow calico on line.

A metaphor is a sock in the puss,

But Naphtali doth more than metaphor
(If indeed any man can do more) ;
He selleth his old mistresses,

When I joined the Players' Club as a freshman
of sixteen, I was told that I was in for more fun
than any one given barrel of monkeys, or even apes.
First there was the autumn dance, always chosen
for a good foggy night, to which you escorted a
freshette you'd met the week before. You danced
with her all evening because neither of you knew
anyone else, and the Club's uncanny staffwork (in
those days at least) took damn good care you didn't
meet anyone else. You didn't know her any better
when you drove her home through the fog. After
this mad frolic, you settled down to try out for a
part in one of four no-good little one-act plays . . .

them.) If you were lucky enough not to get a part,
you were permitted to muck about backstage while
everyone explained to you that you were just as
vital a cog in the wheel of Art as any of the gifted
little falsetto elocutionists out front. You were also
permitted to listen while sophomores explained in
a lofty, snobbish, and bullying manner that backstage we called a flat a "flat," a prop a "prop," and
the fly-gallery the "fly-gallery." Nor was that all.

Spencer's 75th
Anniversary year
David Spencer Limited was founded in Victoria, B.C.,
by David Spencer on January 4, 1873. "Victoria
House," the original little pioneer store, had a total
floor space of 1800 square feet. Today, the eight
David Spencer Limited stores in Vancouver, Victoria,
Nanaimo, New Westminster, Chilliwack, Courtenay,
Duncan and Mission, cover approximately one and a
half million feet of selling space. In seventy-five
years, the one-room, one-man store has grown into
one of the family institutions of British Columbia,
with a  total  staff  of over  3000.
This year—1948—marks the seventy-fifth year of
"the big family store" service; a record of growth
that has, we believe, been brought about by the
confidence and approval of generation after generation of British Columbians in the traditional merchandising of quality goods that has been, and will
continue to be, Spencer's policy.

Northern California Holds Dinner Meeting
The Northern California Branch held a spring
dinner at the Durant Hotel in Berkeley on March
S, with attendance of slightly over forty.
Preliminary to the main meeting, approval was
given to the following slate of officers:
Chairman, Dr. Percy Barr, '24; First Vice-Chairman, Mr. Harold Offord, '23; Second Vice-Chairman, Miss Margaret Coope, '30; Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. Lester McLennan, '22; Programs and Arrangements, Mr. Al Drennan, '23; Membership and
Publicity, Mr. Dewart Lewis, '22; Campus Representative, Mr. Harry English, '45.
A simple set of by-laws was also approved for
future guidance of the officers.
The chairman of the evening was Percy Barr.
The dinner, a dignified affair, was preceded by the
singing of "America" and "O Canada" with Mrs.
Gordon Betram furnishing the piano accompaniment.
In his opening remarks, Percy Barr conveyed to
the gathering the greetings of Dr. Robert G.
Sproule, President of the University of California,
and then introduced the guests of honor.
First speaker was Dr. Jerzy Neyman, Director of
the Statistical Laboratory at U.C., who was introduced as a representative of the British Universities,
whose fond regard and respect for British institutions well qualified him as a representative. lie

throughout Canada, and as far as U.B.C. was concerned, he said that he could never quite forgive one
of its graduates for marrying one of his star feminine pupils nor for doing it in such an oblique manner.
The second speaker was  Dean A.  R.  Davis of
the College of Letters and Science on the U.C. Campus, who was accompanied by Mrs. Davis. He stated
that, during a recent trip to Florida, he had spent
much time getting or keeping Percy Barr out of
trouble and this was also one of his perennial activities on the campus. He was well acquainted with
British Columbia and U.B.C. ,and said that the record of U.B.C.'s graduates at U.C. was excellent and

that the University of California wants more students like those that have come from British Columbia.
The chairman of the organizing committee
(Messrs. Barr, English and McLennan) of the
branch reviewed the work of the committee during
the past year, including a membership survey; cooperation with the parent group in Vancouver and
the visit of Darrell Braidwood and Frank Turner to
San Francisco for the A.A.C. meeting in July; the
raising of a treasury fund; the election of officers,
and the arrangement of several dinners.
Messrs. H. E. Bramstocn-Cook and John Kask
were elected charter members of the branch.
In addition to the forty odd present at the meeting, an equal number of alumni sent regrets at not
being able to attend because of sickness, travel, location, etc. Replies came from New York, Florida,
Vancouver, Seattle and Los Angeles.
The next meeting is planned for November.

The second meeting of the Southern California
Branch of the Alumni Association of the University
of British Columbia, took the form of a dinner and
discussion session. It was held at the Mona Lisa
Restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles
on Saturday, April 24, 1948. Twenty-seven attended,
including graduates and their husbands, wives, parents and friends. And our distinguished guests,
the Canadian Trade Commissioner and his wife,
Major and Mrs. Victor E. Duclos.
A tentative set of by-laws, modelled after those
adopted by our Northern California partners, was
submitted to the group for discussion.
Next came the election of officers. The newly-
adopted by-laws call for seven. A motion was carried to appoint as officers for the coming year, all
those who served on the organizing committee. The
six members of this committee were then elected to
the various offices. A seventh, nominated from the
floor, was elected to the remaining spot. The roster
wound up as follows :
Chairman: Lionel Stevenson, Arts '22.
First  Vice-Chairman:   Lillian  Lockliu   Nicholas,
Arts '23.
Second Vice-Chairman: Fred L. Hartley, Sc. '39.
Secretary-Treasurer:  Edith  McSweyn, Arts '29.
Publicity and Membership: Arnold M. Ames,
Sc. '37.
Programs and Arrangements: Guy Corfield, Sc.
Campus Representative: Fernand E. Deloume,
Arts '40.
Following the business of the meeting, the evening's agenda turned to self-introduction. By way
of a little variety the chairman suggested that
each graduate in announcing himself, should tell
some highlight of his university life which remains
particularly in his memory. This proved most entertaining. It proved there are at least two things
of lasting interest in Point Grey—Dr. Sedgewick
and the rest of the University. This was a great
night for both. But it will perhaps be affectionately
remembered by many of those present as the Sedgewick Session.
Here's a list of those present: Major Victor E.
Duclos, McGill 1914, and Mrs. Duclos; Lionel
Stevenson, Arts '22, and his mother, Mrs. Mabel
Stevenson; Rena V. Grant, Arts '20; C. Ralph Fol-

Farle Foerster, Nanaimo; Kdnumd Davie Fulton,
M.P., of Kamloops; Dr. William Kaye Lamb, Vancouver, and Richard Claxton Palmer of Summer-
land. The strength of the alumni branches was revealed in that three of the new senators come from
outside places.
The eleven candidates returned to the Senate
were Kenneth Caple. Mrs. Sally Creighton, Dr.
Albert "Dal" Grauer, Sherwood Lett, Arthur Lord,
Dr. Dorothy Mawdsley, Dr. Walter Sage, Dr. Austin Schinbein, Dr. Frank Turnbull, Dr. Harry Warren, Dr. Charles Wright.
Dr. Foerster, newly-elected, is Director of Pacific
Biological Station at Nanaimo; Davie Fulton is
M.P. for Kamloops and a former Rhodes Scholar;
Dr. Kaye Lamb is Librarian, University of B. C,
and Richard Palmer is Superintendent of Dominion
Experimental Station at Summerland.
Graduation ceremonies at the University of B.C.
had the semblance of an army maneouver this spring
as 1600 graduates received their degrees—and the
man who gave the Convocation Address knew how
to handle the situation for he was Viscount Alexander of Tunis—Governor-General of Canada.
Speaking to the large graduating class and another 1500 friends and relatives who jammed every
corner of the Armories, Viscount Alexander said
that University education is more important than
ever before, because now foreign ideologies—masquerading under the name of democracy — are
threatening the western concept of freedom.
Viscount Alexander earlier had received the honorary degree of doctor of laws from U.B.C. Chancellor F.ric W. Hamber.

Dean Daniel Buchanan attended the graduation
ceremonies as retiring Dean of Arts and Science.
It was his last time to attend as other than a spectator and when he was honoured with an honorary
degree of doctor of science, the whole armories
shook with applause for the Dean who has long-
held a spot in the affections of all U.B.C. undergraduates.
Top student at U.B.C. this year's graduating
class was Elizabeth May Charnley, who had the distinction of receiving the Governor-General's medal
directly from the G.-G. himself.

It is time we ceased being "academic"
in our discussion of
political and social
philosophies; it is
time for positive,
continuous individual thought and action
to promote an ever-
better Canadian way
of life. Democracy
has never been static, it always has been
and always should
be dynamic.
We should realize,)]
as well, that the dig-1
nity of the individual!
in a free Society will I
remain only if we, asj
individuals, show the
necessary initiative and enterprise in our everyday
living.    Fredom and responsibility go hand in hand.
In a negative way, we have been exercising our
"rights" for quite a time. Most of us have been
guilty of not voting, not attending political meetings, not interesting ourselves in education and educational problems, not offering constructive suggestions to those in authority, and not attending our
own churches. Many of us have slipped into the
habit of using the word "they" when referring to
"our" governments.
If our "social consciousness" has been lost in the
economic shuffle of this industrial age, then surely
it is time to put the cards on the table and sort out
the human values involved in this game of living.
We could be "too long" still when chaos comes.
Alumni who achieved prominence in the fields of
business and industry, in the learned and skilled
professions and trades, in education, and in other
fields of human endeavour have definite responsibilities. Those of our number who occupy positions
of leadership in the economic sense should be expected to be among the leaders in the community.
Perhaps we should remember that "letting
George do it" brought a Nazi Germany, a Mussolini
Italy, yes and a "democratic" Czechoslovakia. The
"price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
Dr. Hugh L. Keenleyside (B.A. '20), Deputy
Minister of Mines and Resources, delivered a series
of lectures at the University under sponsorship of
the Vancouver Canadian Club, and found time for
a small, informal get-together with a few '20 classmates. Included in the intimate group were Lawyer A. (Al) Swencisky) (Permanent President of
the Class), Lawyer Janet Gilley of New Westminster (Permanent Class First Vice-President), North
ern Construction's Noel Lambert, U.B.C. Librarian
Dr. Kaye Lamb, Alumni President Dick Bibbs, and
several others Title of "Most Unique
Graduate of the Year" goes to Margaret Stokkeland.
Marg became the second girl to graduate from U.
B.C. in Chemical Engineering.    The first, Mrs. H.
D. Wellis (now Rona Hatt), graduated twenty-six
years before and now resides in Victoria. . . . Best
wishes to F. S. (Van) [Perry (B.A. '46) who resigned
his position as U.B.C.'s Information Officer to return to the Editorial Staff of the Vancouver Province .and to last year's U.B.C. Radio Society President Ernie Perrault (B.A. '48), Van's successor in
the U.B.C. post. . . . Good luck to Morris (Morrie)

the desire to perform in public at all is a form of
hysteria) ; and you studied the finest form of painting, which is making up a youth of eighteen about
to play a man of fifty to look as if he was really
Well, all this Art and Beauty and Self-expression was just about too exciting for flesh and blood
to stand. Something had to snap, and it was usually
your marks in the Christmas exams. But I was told
by several kindly old gentlemen of twenty that this
autumnal ritual was nothing, merely nothing. It
might have whipped me up into what I thought
was a frenzy of joy, but just wait till the Spring
Play, that's all. Just wait. If you get a part in
the Spring Play you not only become a great man
in the main current of the drama, but you get a
free trip round the scenic beauties of our fair province. In those days the spring tour really was a
tour, too. It played over twenty towns and got as
far east as Revelstoke and Fernie, most years. The
joys of the tour defied description. The gay camer-
aderie! The carefree hours spent unpacking trunks
and packing them again! The hanging gardens of
Trail! The brass bedsteads in the hotels, with knobs
that really unscrew! The meals! (I don't know
what kind of hungry homes these poor harlotry
players came from, but the thought of those meals
always made them cry with pleasure.) The wax
flowers in the hotel  at Grand  Forks!    The  rivers
full of water!    The mountains bumping right up
out of the ground like that!   The station platforms,
right  beside  the  train   and  yet  never getting  hit!
The publicity !
I got pretty drunk on this kind of talk, naturally,
and I tried out in great excitement. And since the
part I tried for was an excited part. \ got it. The
character I plaved was an excited simpleton, and I
played him to a standstill. Everyone said it was the
finest acting in the play. At least, Jimmy Butter-
field said it, just to disagree with anyone who happened to be standing around. I got right into the
spirit of the part and flunked my April exams, not
just with supps., but outright.
And then the tour began. Yes, dammit, it began, but it took its own time about ending, for several trifling reasons and one big one. I didn't mind
the trifles. Anyone can stand mere tedium, even
when it involves compulsory insomnia, quarrels,
frantic rushing, lack of privacy, and all the rest. I
didn't mind the few bits of scenery we had to visit,
and I didn't mind missing all the rest of the scenery
either. I didn't mind being four years younger than
anyone else in the cast, or being teased for my shyness, not even when I was taken (as a joke on myself) into a bar in Revelstoke. It wasn't a beer
parlor, but a real bar, huge and majestic. It said
"Bank of Montreal" on the windows, but I think
there was a mistake somewhere; perhaps the label

was just a hangover (if I may so express myself)
from some previous tenant. No drinking was allowed on the tour, but to tease me about my youth
was a good execuse for any drink, so the boys asked
me what I'd have. Never having had a drink in my
life before, it was immaterial to me. (Happy state !)
I said a gin fizz would fit my mood, and I swallowed
it like a man. I swallowed the next like a seven-
foot man, and the third like an eight-foot man. The
joke was on the boys, especially when they found
nobody could push me round for the next three or
four hours. But not every town had such a bank,
and I reverted to being pushed.
I didn't mind the young ladies of the party resenting my shyness as some brutal insult to their
charms instead of the compliment it was.
No, all I minded was Fleurange, a Belgian girl
who teased me a little worse than any. Having been
slighted by a little sixteen-year-old boy who didn't
matter a hoot to her, Fleurange resolved to embarrass him quite literally to death. And she nearly
succeeded. Her only mistake was in giving me too
large an overdose. At a party after the show, she
told the chaperon she had a headache and would
like me . . . little boy me ... to take her back to the
hotel. The chaperon knew that my strength was as
the strength of ten because my heart was very small
and in the wrong place, so she graciously gave consent. She even thought, poor soul, it would do me
good to be left alone with a lady, I being far too
scared of them. So I took Fleurange home, back to
her room. She asked me to step inside for a chat.
I had had too much of Fleurange's chat already,
but I was afraid to say no. Then Fleurange locked
the door, whipped off most of her outer garments,
and flung herself in very Belgian manner upon the
bed, saying she was quite, quite exhausted. She
didn't look exhausted at all. It was I who looked
exhausted. "I'm getting out of here," I said, and
unlocked the door and ran. And ran and ran, all the
miles to my own room, which I locked tight. If it
seems a dirty trick to report (in the simplest terms)
this little joke of a lady's, let me point out that I
was the victim, and as such have certain rights too.
My manly terror was mainly from the fact that the
other ladies would be back from the party at any
moment; the party had shown distinct signs of
crumbling to pieces when we left. And it was for
their return that Fleurange hoped to keep me. They
would have pounded on the locked door, and have
finally been admitted after much confused delay, and
they would have found me dead on the carpet, with
a deep blush covering the whole of my still quivering corpse. Only by being a little too abrupt had
Fleurange ruined her own plan.
When the tour ended, the chaperon took it upon
herself to visit my mother, to suggest that my cloistered education be chopped open a little to admit a
few women. She felt I didn't see enough women.
Little did the poor wretch know. I had seen enough
women to last me three years, when I next tried
out for a spring play. By that time I was old enough
to emulate Leacock's sailors, who

The Graduate Chronicle CONGRATULATIONS
British Columbia has never been slow to recognize the importance of higher education.
Indeed, it has occupied for many years a position in the very forefront of educational development and may point with pride to its achievements in that field.
We congratulate the Graduates from the University of British Columbia on their appreciation
of the value of higher education, on their realization of the part which it plays in our present-day economy, and on the seriousness with which they have applied themselves to bring
their years of study to fruition, so that they may present themselves at doors to which Education is the key.
The University of British Columbia stands high among scholastic institutions. To have
graduated from that University is in itself a warm recommendation.
Business and industrial leaders are of one mind—that this is the age of specialized knowledge,
that the worthwhile posts in the business and industrial world will go to those whose minds
are trained and disciplined, whose perceptions have been quickened to grasp the intricacies
of the new techniques.
Again—CONGRATULATIONS AND BEST WISHES.   May all Good Fortune attend you.
