Tim Hollick-Kenyon, BA'51, BSW'53 Can AAG answer the
million-dollar question?
David M. Brousson,
President, Alumni Association
Alumni of most universities are familiar with the
annual call for support known as AAG — Alumni
Annual Giving—and millions of alumni around the world
heed this call from their Alma Mater every year.
For alumni of UBC and UVic this is a comparatively new
program, but AAG is a habit that has been catching on
rapidly in recent years. As a result, we graduates have been
able to assume increasingly large and important responsibilities in such forms as the Norman MacKenzie Scholarships (now 42 awarded each year, plus new graduate
fellowships), the President's Fund, special support for the
library, Frederic Wood Theatre, international athletics, and
the like.
In the past, during a major capital fund drive, such as the
1957-58 UBC Development Fund, AAG was pushed into
the background, and as a result it took several years to get
started again, but today these AAG responsibilities are too
vital to allow any such lapse. Therefore, following the
excellent example of the three universities who have combined forces for one appeal, alumni also have agreed to
make a combined appeal for AAG and for the Capital Fund
drive, for all three public British Columbia universities, in
each of the next five years.
Elsewhere in this magazine there are detailed stories on
the Capital Fund campaign, and on this special use of AAG
for the next five years. We believe there are as many reasons
for support of such a program as there are alumni, but
several especially stand out.
To quote from a leading Canadian business publication:
"Education creates and expands business markets, for as the
educational level of society rises so do living standards. . . .
Financial aid to education is grounded in business prudence; it is an investment in the future."
British Columbia's fast developing economy desperately
needs the responsible, effective leadership that must come
from the ranks of the young people now crowding forward
to qualify through university training. At the same time,
ever faster-moving developments in every field of learning
have resulted in a fantastic "explosion of knowledge," and
our universities are straining to provide the teaching and
the understanding which are the only paths to the world of
Here is the call of our Alma Mater, and here is our
chance to repay a little of our obligation to the past
generations who helped make our own education possible.
This, then, is the challenge we must meet, as alumni—to
not only maintain the excellent and traditional AAG programs to which we are committed, but at the same time take
the opportunity of a giant step forward in the educational
advancement of British Columbia.
And, really, who is more likely to accept such a challenge
than today's alumni, the students of yesteryear, who proudly
created and followed the traditions of initiative, self-
sacrifice and independence—the tradition so deep-rooted in
UBC since its first class adopted the words "Tuum Est". Hugh R. Trevor-Roper
The distinguishing quality
of a
university education
Hugh R.  Trevor-Roper
Mr. Trevor-Roper gave the
address at the Autumn
Congregation. The Chronicle brings its readers, on
this and the following page,
the body of his speech on
that occasion.
Today, as we all know, there is a greater demand for
university education than ever before. It is declared an
essential condition of promotion to the higher spheres of
worldly success. It is considered by some, who do not always
look too closely at the real metal of which it is made, as a
golden key. In such circumstances those who can exhibit
such a trophy too easily regard themselves as an elite; and,
as a natural corollary, those who are without it, feel the
need for excuse, may even resent tHeir deprivation. In our
status-ridden society the university degree is becoming a
status-symbol. Such a development seems to me deplorable.
I hope that our English-speaking society, which has been so
dynamic in its past history, will never allow itself to be
stratified on so simple a pattern: will never value titles more
than substance, or sink, with however specious slogans on
its lips, into a Chinese mandarinate.
A year ago a distinguished English lawyer, Lord Shaw-
cross, publicly declared that 'those who go into the universities will always tend to think themselves a cut above those
who do not. And of course they will be. This is the
aristocracy of brains, not of birth or social class.' Such a
statement, I must admit, appals me. It appals me not only
by its smugness—why should we encourage anyone to thank
God that he is not as other men are?—but also by its
content. When it was uttered, it appalled my friend Sir
Thomas Armstrong, himself a university teacher of distinction, now President of the Royal Academy of Music.
'Opinions like those of Lord Shawcross,' he wrote, 'have
coloured our whole attitude to education and had a disas-
(Continued page 6)
5 University Education — from p. 5
trous influence.' What, he asked, about all the creative
artists who have not been to universities, and yet on whom
'the quality of our life depends'? If our society is to retain
its quality we need 'an enlightened sense of the value and
status of skilled and indispensable workers, whatever their
craft. We must not give a wrong bias to the whole educational system by elevating into a false aristocracy those few
who have chosen to work in one field while underestimating
others no less useful.'
To these humane and intelligent sentiments I gladly
subscribe Amen. We can all of us lower our pride a little
by thinking of men and women whom we admire, whether
in history or in our own experience, who have not chosen,
or perhaps not been able to choose, this particular ticket to
success. Their numbers are legion, and they include some of
the greatest of our contemporaries.
What, then, is the distinguishing quality of a university
education? It is not, of course, mere expertise in a
particular branch of learning. Naturally it includes such
expertise; but it also transcends it. It is something which, I
believe, can be summarized quite simply. It is the fact of
having pursued different intellectual sciences in common, in
mutual understanding and respect, and, in consequence, the
capacity to think in general terms. A university is not, of
course, the only way towards this capacity. There are other
ways too, ways which many powerful and original minds
have individually found out. But a university is the most
effective social institution for the purpose.
Much has been written recently about the 'two cultures.'
The high-priests, who .would celebrate the nuptial mass of
these two phantoms, eloquently deplore their divorce. But I
do not think we need take this too seriously. It is not by
intellectual omnivoracity but rather by pursuing our own
branch of study in intelligent contact with others who are
pursuing other branches that we learn to respect the variety
of knowledge, to make comparisons, to discover the interdependence of sciences, to appreciate the creativity of ideas,
to generalize our understanding; and this power once acquired survives the particular experience by which it was
generated. It becomes a habit of mind. I like to think that it
is the most distinctive habit of mind of a university man.
Not every university man attains it; nor does every university seek consciously to create it. But its acquisition seems to
me evidence, more convincing than any number of certificates or status-symbols, of a good university.
Tt is also a habit of mind that is particularly necessary in
the world today. The world has always been a complex
place; to think otherwise is mere romanticism. Different
societies have always had different ways of thought, different traditions, different prejudices, different truths. But
never before have these differences been thrust so closely
against each other. Never, therefore, has it been so necessary
for those who move in the world to appreciate the legitimate variety of opinion, to free their minds from parochial
ways of thought, to see past the vulgar prejudices, the
narrow loyalties, the plausible parrot-cries of our time; or,
for that matter, to detect and not to despise the stunted and
travestied truth which sometimes lurks behind such
unpromising integuments.
This, I believe, has always been the function of a university. In the 800 years of their continuous existence, the
society around our western universities has changed out of
all recognition. The sciences studied and taught there have
multiplied in number, altered in character, and changed in
their order of precedency. But the ultimate tradition has not
changed. It is a tradition of general study: that is, not
amateur or superficial study, but particular study against a
general intellectual background, a general philosophy of
freedom to question, of comparison, of cosmopolitanism.
And this tradition, or at least the ideal of this tradition has
been common to them all. The best of them have always
pursued it; even the worst have always paid lip-service to
it. In the early years of their history in Europe, any one of
their scholars was equally at home in Paris and Oxford,
Bologna and Salamanca, Padua and Prague. Today he is, or
should be, equally at home in Paris and Uppsala, Moscow
and Cairo and Harvard, Oxford and McGill and Vancouver.
Madam Chancellor, I thank you for the example of this
universal spirit which you have shown to me in British
Columbia, and on behalf of us both for making President
Robertson and myself feel thus equally at home. □ A student centre with no

Overseas students at the University of British Columbia
—they come with serious purpose to advance their education and, a few years later, perhaps to translate that
training into advancement for their own people. While
they are here, without any prior intent they enrich greatly
the lives of our native-born students, broaden their horizons, deepen their understanding of human brotherhood.
has built up over the years a reputation for interest and
active participation in international affairs. This interest has
been whetted by what is now the second largest foreign
student enrolment in Canada—roughly ten per cent of the
total student body at West Point Grey.
A number of prosaic factors will account in part for the
many overseas students—favourable climate, lower fees
than in American institutions, and for some, the fact that it
is the nearest western university. But that hardly tells the
whole story. A different kind of climate—the social
climate—-plays its part, too.
The welcome a foreign student finds here is warm and,
to a degree, matter of fact. He is a guest and not a curiosity.
He finds himself in a community accustomed to overseas
scholars and somewhat more sophisticated internationally
than he might have imagined.
Student exchange began shortly after the war. Cliff
Greer, one of our war veteran students, attended the first
seminar sponsored by the World University Service of
Canada, which was held in Germany in 1948. This delegation of Canadian professors and students was the first to
extend to their German counterparts the hand of reconciliation.
Cliff returned to UBC determined that the students
would play their part in the enormous task of reconstruction
that lay before the European university community. He and
his friends, ably abetted by professors, set about an ambitious campaign and convinced the students at a general
meeting that they should place a levy of a dollar a head on
themselves for the international program of WUS and for
exchange scholarships. The first scholars were from
Germany and Japan. The scholarships now average six a
year including, this year, scholars from Chile, Japan, Germany, Russia and Spain. A UBC student is in each of those
It was a heartwarming experience for the writer to find
at the International Assembly of the World University
Service in Lund, Sweden this summer that so many professors and students made a point of mentioning UBC. In
many cases friends or acquaintances had studied here; in
others, they had met UBC students or faculty. In not a few
cases they had received book shipments from the students
at UBC and wanted to say thank you.
(Continued page 8) Cosmopolitan Campus — from P. 7
One of the first International Houses
in Canada was founded on our campus
in the fifties. It began its career as so
many UBC institutions do, in a hut
amid great enthusiasm. Cultivating the
brotherhood of all men, easing the
homesickness of many a foreign student and providing an arena for the
thrashing out of problems of politics,
religion, and culture were its goals.
In 1959 the late Eleanor Roosevelt
opened the doors of the hut's success-
sor, a beautifully designed, airy centre
for many of the campus's international
Earlier, in 1956, UBC had answered
a desperate call for help. She refurbished some of her huts and made
welcome the Hungarian refugee Sopron School of Forestry. A UBC alumnus, James Sinclair, cut the red tape to
bring them here, confident of their
welcome. And the students again
rallied round providing through the
AMS and WUS the administration of
scholarship monies that came in from
WUS and other sources for Sopron
It is not only this international
climate that makes UBC a favourite
choice of foreign students. This is one
of the few major student centres in
North America which does not have a
racial problem. Its community ethnic
makeup of Occidental and Oriental
has been harmonious and this sense
of harmony is attractive to Asian and
African students. There is also an
atmosphere of friendly concern for the
student evidenced in International
House and the numerous community
organizations that welcome the foreign
That welcome from community
organizations is far from being a one
way street. Just as the overseas student
contributes greatly to the lives of his
Canadian classmates, so he contributes
to the community. The office at International House receives an average of
two requests a day for speakers and it
is very seldom those requests remain
The overseas students also appear
on request at seminars of the College
of Education, speaking on education
in their home countries, and they
appear on panels on world events,
panels which could not be held
successfully without them. They give
an amazing amount of time to this
sort of thing. And their very presence
on campus makes the home student
more aware of the outside world, at
the same time making it impossible
for him to feel racial intolerance or
There remains, though, a barrier
which the overseas student finds hard
to break down. He would like to make
contact with his Canadian classmates,
but he generally finds it difficult to get
further than superficialities. This has
no connection with race prejudice; it
is simply due to the fact that by the
time he arrives on the scene, generally
as a graduate, the Canadians have
made their circle of friends and do not
make the effort to open ranks and
admit the newcomer.
For many a foreign student the
Graduate Student Centre is his
favourite socializing spot.
Almost invariably he has a successful
academic career at UBC. A good deal
of the credit may be ascribed to the
care taken in assessing his qualifications before he leaves his native
As with all students not resident in
British Columbia, the foreigner must
have the equivalent of senior matriculation. He must also have better-than-
average standing and he must be able
to meet the minimum requirements
of his own university. If he is at the
graduate level, UBC becomes very selective indeed because of the shortage
of places. If he is on a Commonwealth
or Colombo Plan scholarship, his
application is first screened by an
agency of his own government, then in
Ottawa, and finally at the university
to which his application is sent. UBC
has occasionally rejected such

registrar's office decides whether he can
be admitted, his academic qualifications
being satisfactory. After he gets here,
the student takes another language
test and may be required to register
for either English 80 or English 90,
both non-credit courses.
The students in those English
courses may represent a wide variety
of races. About sixty countries have
nationals on the UBC campus each
year—Argentina and Malaya, Iran,
Eire and Fiji, and all points between.
Hong Kong, China, Great Britain,
India and the U.S.A. send the largest
contingents. USSR, in 1962, had a
student here on a WUS scholarship.
The cosmopolitan character of the
UBC campus, acquired through that
overseas 10%, continues, as also the
awareness that we receive as much
from our foreign students as we are
able to give them.
8 Leadership
The professional athlete is banned
on the UBC campus; the professional politician is not.
Those might fairly be considered the
key words in Dr. Malcolm McGregor's
address which opened the 10th annual
Leadership Conference held at Camp
Elphinstone in October.
This 10th conference devoted itself
largely to the question of student autonomy and student responsibility at
UBC. Dr. McGregor in his talk,
appropriately entitled "The Professional and the Amateur," reviewed the
long history of student self-government
at UBC, from the days when a
committee of four consisting of Sherwood Lett, H. T. Logan, Evelyn Story
(now Lett) and Eddie Mulhern drafted
the AMS constitution in 1915. The
time had come, he said, when there
should be a reassessment of student
responsibility. There is a tendency now
for the Alma Mater Society to assume
a responsibility that is not demonstrably theirs.
The "Back Mac" campaign, he felt,
was a tactical blunder, but its most
disastrous consequence was that the
undergraduate politicians felt the bit
between their teeth and departed from
the old spirit of student co-operation
with the administration which has
become the enemy—the "they."
As a first step in righting this situation Dr. McGregor advocated insistence that academic standards of student
leaders be maintained. There do exist
eligibility rules and they ought to be
enforced, he said.
Dr. McGregor reviewed many of the
projects properly in their field of interest which students in the past had
carried out, and suggested others which
they might well examine at this time,
Saturday opened with a panel of
presidents on the topic "The Alma
Mater Society and the Relationship
between other Members of the University Community."
Roger McAfee, president of AMS,
claimed that students have a right to
know the cost of various university
services to students, such as the food
services, as only with this information
can they suggest a better system.
With regard to relationship with the

hour sing-song on Saturday night.
faculty, he felt that AMS should seek
more contact with them, while the
Faculty Association for its part should
bring pressure to bear on some of its
members to attend student affairs.
Some faculty appear frequently at such
meetings while others never attend.
Summarizing, Mr. McAfee said there
must be effective channels through
which AMS might communicate with
the other members of the University
Dr. John Norris, Faculty Association
president, made the point that his
association and the AMS were not
immediately relevant to the main purpose of the university, the advancement
of learning. Freedom, informality and
cordiality are all that are needed and
organization is not required for these.
In practical terms he suggested that
AMS  should  limit  itself to  activities
which have relevance to purposes of the
University and hire a businessman for
the conduct of its business affairs.
Dr. Norris urged also that students
should be more critical—on a man-toman basis—of their instructors, and
suggested that there were some activities which should be shared by AMS
and the Faculty Association, such as
academic symposia.
With regard to the AMS structure,
he echoed Dr. McGregor's observation,
that it was essentially unchanged from
the twenties. It is time now, he said,
with UBC's metamorphosis from small
college to large university, to decentralize into autonomous units.
Dr. Macdonald, speaking first of the
office of the president of a large
university, listed the many roles he was
often expected to play. Since he could
not possibly perform them all, he must
choose his field of development, and he
himself had chosen the academic
Going on to the relationship of the
AMS to the administration, he pointed
out that the Society receives its autonomy from the University administration. While the University has the
right to intervene at any time, it tries
not to do so, since it feels the
independence of AMS is important to
the growth of the student. Nevertheless,
the AMS should confine its activities
to its own affairs and not concern
itself with those of the University
administration, which are not its
responsibility. The University welcomes constructive criticism of student
services by the AMS, but how these
services are to be provided is the
University's responsibility.
The University exists for the benefit
of the community, said David
Brousson, president of the Alumni
Association, and not for any one
constituent of the University community. The role of the alumni is to
support and suggest and the students'
responsibility is much the same. The
AMS has the added task of instituting
and supporting programs and activities
for the student outside the academic
The conference opened Friday evening and went through to Sunday
afternoon. David Brock
At the end of September I was invited to address the
freshmen at the first annual Cairn Dinner. The dinner
was then prudently cancelled, and I was left without an
audience on which to unload about 5,000 words of notes.
The Chronicle has kindly offered to print a fifth of them.
Any reader now entering the late-teens stage of his second
childhood may find them useful. But he should realize that
the 1964 campus differs in many ways from the one he
knew so well. If I listed the changes for the worse, I suppose I would have a public relations type after me. (We
didn't even have one of those.)
Perhaps in my fifth, which has now dwindled from an
imperial fifth to a U.S. one, I could stick to permanent
problems, rather than such doomed little novelties as
Screech Day, folk-singers, girl students in pink stretchies,
and plainclothesmen looking for marijuana, communism
and thieves. Did I ever tell you about the time I had my
pocket picked in the Brock Hall cafeteria, two or three
years ago? I don't go so far as to claim that a university
which now teaches everything must have set up a course in
pocket-picking, in some hut known as Fagin House. But I
do claim it couldn't have happened at all until quite lately.
Well, let us press on with one-seventh of an
Open Letter to Freshmen
My little dears:
In the next four years or more, you should try to discover
which rules are better kept and which are better broken. A
campus is a terrible place for rules, and gets worse all the
time. Some are devised and enforced in so malevolent a
fashion, they seem the work of the Traffic & Parking
Bureau. Still, the outside world is very like this, also, and
perhaps the campus serves to break you in. If you obey all
the rules, you have no peace of mind. If you break them all,
you finish (and quite soon) in an institution which is
medical, mental, correctional, or mortuary. So the great
thing is to know which to ignore. An education that teaches
this is an education indeed.
Thirty years ago, few firms or individuals would hire a
man with a B.A. To get a job with them you had to lie, and
say you had never gone to college. The universities have
done a fine job in killing that prejudice, but they have
overdone it. If you, because of your new skill in the art of
persuasion, learnt at the feet of your professors of rhetoric,
can persuade the world of commerce that there are many
useful and brainy men without a degree to their names, and
many really retarded idiots with a B.A., overcrowding on the
campus could cease to-morrow, or even late this afternoon.
When you are with your friends and acquaintances, they
lO The   author   with    his   own    four   erstwhile
are doing no work. You then deduce they never do any
work while alone. They foster this illusion to promote a
myth about their clever ways of outwitting the examiners.
They boast to you about the well-rounded benefits of la vie
de Boheme. Do not believe or imitate them. They are lying.
They are studying in secret. At the examinations they will
pass and you will fail.
You can identify a male poet only by where he sits in the
old cafeteria, but you can tell a female one anywhere (in
1964) by her white jeans.
"The finer things are a must." People who talk like this
would not know a finer thing from an ugly thing. In fact,
they place a great deal of sentimental value on ugliness.
They think it is Prince Charming. Samuel Butler said you
should know just enough about Culture to distrust it at
first-hand. Don't let that depress you; many of one's best
friends are untrustworthy.
Every professor, like every student, thinks himself more
sensitive than the rest. Read Keats' warning against being
too sensitive. Or watch woodlice dying in the sun; what's
so good about that? In Oxfordshire, woodlice were known
as God Almighty's pigs. Be as tolerant as you can of the arty
boys, in case they too are God Almighty's pigs.
Most professors are very keen on tolerance. Except of each
other, for they are as jealous as chorus girls. To be tolerant
of the tolerable is quite right. To be tolerant of the intolerable, however, had better be left to saints and crooked
mayors and people like that.
One of the funniest things about education is the notion
that you are obliged to have opinions on everything, including subjects on which only a lunatic would dare to have
any opinion at all.
The answer to most questions is "I don't know." This is
the most scientific thing that you or even an expert can
possibly say. As Galileo pointed out.
Galileo was ungenerous and unscientific about the
achievements of his colleagues. It was not so much his
science as his conceit and sarcasm that finally got him a few
unpleasant days in stir. He was a real pain in both ears.
And so now he is the patron saint of the Committed Man.
I fear there is some significance here.
If you think every problem has an answer, it means four
things: it means you are a child of this age, over-educated,
and in for a lot of surprises. It also means you are stating
the problems wrong.
A real prophet is usually about 400 years ahead of his
time. It is therefore impossible for you to identify him until
you have been dead for about 340 years.
Try to think of something really original to be shocked
about. This will not earn you a degree, but it shocks me
that it won't.
A Frenchman said that truth is a tone of voice. Education
should teach you to recognize that voice in the dark.
It may have been that in the 1920's we students were too
gay. But it may be that today you are too serious. A second
Frenchman said you should take life tragically but not
seriously. And a third said gaiety is the courage of the
Much of the world's charm, style, goodness and wisdom
remain in French, untranslated. To deprive yourself of
these riches as a political gesture gives us a vividly unpleasant picture of politics and perhaps of you.
Professor Raleigh said he didn't mind dying because those
who stand for liberty want to compel. I do not mind dying
because the educators try to tell me what to worry about.
Half the harm is done by people who worry about the
wrong things. The other half is done by people who do
not worry about the right ones.
I have now used up my unsubmerged fifth, so just let me
end on a happy note by saying I envy you your energy and
your indolence alike. I have lost some of each. You must not
lose any of either. All you must do, to make sense of your
life, is to reverse their objects and become indifferent to
your present enthusiasms and energetic about things now
neglected. In this way you simply can't go wrong.
David Brock, B.A.  (retired)
Teaching is not just the imparting of knowledge from one
who possesses it to others to whom it is transmitted. Above
all, in a university, a teacher seeks to engage students in
the kinds of inquiry that yield and test knowledge. A
teacher is best fitted for this task—the task of enabling
students to be active participants in the pursuit of knowledge—when he is himself active and creative in research.
He then comes to his students in classroom, seminar, or
laboratory not merely to expound discoveries made but to
join his students with him in further voyages of exploration. His research feeds into his teaching; his teaching is
invigorated by his research. It is the primary concern of
a university to provide, in the fullest measure possible,
the means and environment most conducive to a fruitful
marriage of teaching and research.

in an overwhelming flood. Recent developments in UBC's library are caused
by all the developments in the world
outside the library, by the explosion of
population and the explosion of knowledge.
As knowledge becomes more specialized and more extensive every year, and
as the number of students at UBC increases (there are 22,000 of them expected by 1973) the library has to
grow, and to grow quickly. No university has ever existed without books and
today a university cannot be good without a good library. This library must
nourish not only the studies of the
undergraduates, but also the researches
of the graduate school and the faculty.
Good men will not stay where a poor
library impedes their researches, and
often the same men require the rare,
the obscure and the very recent publications.
The book budget of UBC's library
has doubled in the last four years, and
so has the number of books it lends.
This pace has to be maintained and
even exceeded. There are now close to
700,000 volumes in the library. There
must be over a million by 1970.
Additions to eight floors in the main
library have been built this summer to provide more space for books and
for readers, but the building is old-
fashioned and unsuited to indefinite expansion. If the university library were
to remain centralized, one could imagine the shape of things to come:
hordes would advance daily from ever
more distant confines of the campus to
mill in frustration through the maze of
stacks, a few perhaps losing themselves
forever in odd corners among lost
books, to quietly crumble with them to
A happier solution has been found.
Cell division is taking place. Branches
are being established which, with reading rooms in teaching buildings, are
easing the strain on the main library.
To be viable these branches must
each serve a distinct group of faculty
and students, and each must collect the
literature of a well defined and independent but broad field of knowledge.
Bio-medicine is a case in point. In
other words, it is very important that
no department suffer because a part of
the collection is moved out of the
main library. The branch libraries will
be fairly independent of their parent;
each will have its own staff, its own
catalogue and other helps to readers,
and each will be open full time. Such
a scheme is expensive, but it will be
justified by the service it is able to give.
Librarians are not interested in standing guard over mountains of books,
they want the books to be used, and to
be used as easily as possible.
The university library now has two
branches, at some distance from the
main library and within the main
building two special divisions, Special
Collections and the Sedgewick Library.
The Law Library, the senior of these
branches, is now more than ten
years old. It is the centre of the Law
School, housed in the same building as
the offices of faculty, with lecture rooms
nearby. The collection is an easy and
obvious one to separate from the main
library. Its literature is distinct and independent and its readers form a
homogeneous group. They rarely take
books away from the library, but require a great variety of them close at
hand to refer to in the search for cases
and legislation, so that the library consists of large reading rooms — the
British and Commonwealth room, the
American room, and the room for international law. The lay visitor enjoys
the sight of the great series of law reports and statutes in leather bindings
which line the walls, and the Daumier
prints which hang in the corridors,
even though to see them he must step
over students sprawled on the floor
consulting precedents.

nnHE second branch, the new Wood-
■*- ward Library, officially opened
as recently as November 12, is the
latest effort to provide space and service. Its shelves contain books on Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy
and the Biological Sciences, bringing
together subjects whose relationship is
increasingly apparent. It has been
built near to the people who use it and
it will be part of the coming Health
Sciences Centre at UBC.
Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Woodward's
Foundation which gave the building to
the University has also given a very
fine historical collection in memory of
the pioneer physicians of British Columbia. The Department of the History
of Medicine and Science, which has its
offices in the Woodward Building, will
use this collection. It hopes to offer
courses which will guide humanities
students as well as science students in
the history of scientific discovery and
scientific concepts.
Among the treasures in the Woodward Memorial Room are first,
second and third editions of one of the
great books of the sixteenth century,
The Fabric of the Human Body, by
Vesalius, founder of modern anatomy.
This work appeared in 1543 and is
considered by many to mark the start
of the scientific revolution, coinciding
as it did with the appearance of Copernicus' work on the revolutions of the
stars   and   planets.   The   library  owns
also a 1480 edition of Aristotle's De
Anima, a first edition of Newton's
Optics, early works of Louis Pasteur,
original letters of Lord Lister, a collection of medals and writings of Sir
Charles Sherrington, O.M., and the
finest collection outside McGill of
writings of the great Canadian physician, Sir William Osier. There is even
a first edition of Gray's Anatomy,
which arrived with the superb collection of anaesthesiology received from
Sir Robert Mcintosh, Nuffield Professor
of Anaesthesia at Oxford.
Appropriately the Memorial Collection is kept in a room whose fine wood
and leather chairs may after all remind those who use it of the calm and
comfort of older libraries.
The Special Collections division in
the main library was formed not for
special readers but for special books.
This is where rare books, manuscripts,
old newspapers, old pamphlets, and
historical maps are kept. Unlike special
people they require a special temperature and tender care. The heart of this
division is the historical collection of
Canadiana given by Judge Howay and
Dr. Robie Reid. Here are bound
copies of the Victoria Gazette, the first
newspaper published in British Columbia; Waddington's Fraser Mines Vindicated, the first book published in the
province; old Cariboo account books,
and early editions of Cook's and Vancouver's voyages. There are also a few
volumes from the first centuries of
printing in Europe, and (on long loan
from the Folger Library, Washington,
D.C.) first, second and third folios of
r I ihe main aim for the future in
■*• Special Collections is to fill gaps
in the records of this province. The
Provincial Archives in Victoria has a
fine collection concerned with B.C.
politics and constitutional history—the
University Library is beginning to collect original papers relating to B.C. industry, business and labour. This will
make Special Collections a rich quarry
for researchers in the History, Political
Science, Commerce and Economics departments.
The Sedgewick Library, known for
the two years since its formation as
the College Library, is not a specialized
but a very general library. It serves
undergraduates in their first two years
and stocks numbers of copies of the
standard books used in their courses. It
is in the main building but has a separate entrance and is one more attempt
to divert a distinct group of readers
from the main stacks.
As time and new building go on
there will be more branch libraries on
campus, providing better facilities and
study space for students. The Woodward and Law libraries are hopeful
achievements on the way to a university library which shall be diversified,
scholarly, and easy to use. [~J

14 It's over for another year. When
we'd swept up the confetti, rinsed
the glasses and smoothed out the ribbons for use at next October's party,
we put the computers to work and
came up with the following statistics:
Reunions were a tremendous success. As examples, Class of '49 had
over 200 present, Class of '29, 70, a
very high percentage of their total.
The Homecoming Ball doubled in
numbers of those attending (what a
floor show!) and the women, with 44
participants, outdid the men in the
golf tournaments.
With all the serious and important
matters to which this issue of the
Chronicle must give space, we cannot
possibly offer a full review of the
wide-ranging Homecoming program. A
feature new to the '64 gathering was
the cultural events program, and so
out of that list of half a dozen events
we have made an arbitrary selection
on which to report to alumni who
missed them.
Two people who could be almost
guaranteed to run some controversial flags up the pole were members of the panel on the question "Has
the family a future?" The complete
panel consisted of Canon David Som-
erville of the Anglican Theological
College, moderator; Dean Helen McCrae, Dean of Women, UBC; Miss
Margaret Gourlay, Welfare Director,
City of Vancouver; Mr. Jack Wasser-
man, The Vancouver Sun; Mr. Gus
Sivertz of Public & Industrial Relations Limited; Rev. Ray Goodall,
United Church.
Miss Gourlay, the first speaker,
answered with an emphatic "yes!" to
the question. She based her argument
on the premise that the family provides the best means of filling a basic
human need. We need a sense of
worth and of identity, she said.
Mr. Goodall agreed that some form
of relatively stable group will always
be necessary to develop a sense of our
identity. He did not, however, see anything particularly sacred about any
family pattern, and it seemed to him
that changing social needs would
necessitate changing family patterns.
Successive monogamy rather than permanent monogamy was the trend.
T\TThat alternative, asked someone
» » from the floor, was there to the
family? The one point of unanimity
among the panel members seemed to
be that they disliked the thought of
any alternative. Mr. Sivertz had said
earlier, "I believe in the family because the alternative is too frightening to contemplate." Mr. Goodall, also
earlier, had stated reluctantly, "If the
population soars to almost unmanageable proportions there is bound to be
some attempt at government control,
some attempt to interfere with the
family and procreation of children."
Mr. Wasserman gloomily saw the family as part of a totalitarian society
"which is moving towards greater and
greater control of the individual."
Canon Somerville wisely made no
attempt at summing up. The small
avalanche of questions from the audience was ample proof that the family
and its future was at least receiving a
good deal of thought.
The previous evening Professor J.
D. B. Miller, Head of the Department of International Relations,
Australia National University, Canberra, had addressed an audience of
alumni and others on the subject
"Australia looks at Southeast Asia."
Australia, like the rest of us, has
had to do a good deal of rethinking
about the emergent nations, it appeared from Professor Miller's address.
While Australia had quickly grasped
the importance of national feeling in
Asia, he said, they had thought of Asia
as a unit and did not differentiate,
and they also thought that nationalism meant democracy and democracy
meant peacefulness.
Australia, while opposing Indonesia's
claim to West New Guinea, took every
means to impress upon that country
that whatever their differences on this
point, her feelings were of friendship.
Then Malaysia came into being and
Australia welcomed the new state,
happy to have a friendly, non-communist neighbor.
The belligerent noises that Indonesia
soon began to make with respect to
Malaysia posed a dilemma for Australia. As Professor Miller said, Indonesia is there, cannot be ignored, and
its importance to Australia is likely
to grow. Any sort of parliamentary or
liberal regime in Indonesia is now
hard to imagine, its policy of confrontation with respect to Malaysia
is likely to continue, and Australia
does not have the support of a clear-
cut American policy. "What is needed
is the assurance that Indonesia will
suffer if it goes to the brink once too
In reply to a question, Professor
Miller stated that Indonesia's rather
weak case against Malaysia includes a
claim that Britain's support of Malaysia represents colonialism and that
Indonesia has a duty to resist this.
From specifics, in fact, the Indonesians
move to wider, vaguer assertions which
are taken seriously in their country
and provide the most obvious justification in their eyes for the policy of

Ministry to a vocational parish — the campus
Elizabeth Blanche Norcross
"Tn the first place," I said, "why
A are you here at all?" And the chaplains, who had kindly given up a
large part of their usual meeting time
to answer my questions, proceeded to
tell me.
The university chaplain service is a
comparatively new development at
UBC and on campuses all across
Canada. It is not because the student is
regarded as a man with a problem but
simply because he is a member of a
worshipping community that the
service exists.
"The inauguration of the university
chaplain service," the reverend gentlemen summarized it for me formally,
"reflects the awareness of all church
bodies today that there are vocational
parishes as well as geographical ones."
Put a little more positively, it is
part of a general recognition that an
individual's vocational grouping can
be more important than his geographical. The frontier for the vocational
parish is the academic area. When the
student comes  to  university he joins
the academic community, if he is one
of the best, and opts out of his home
environment. He comes at an age when
he begins to question the early teaching
he received, and he needs someone to
act as a liaison between his old life and
his new, someone in his new life to
whom he can address his questions,
with whom he can discuss his problems, not necessarily with a view to
getting authoritative answers.
Ideally, that is, the student begins to
question, but it is here the chaplains
seem to feel most frustrated. When I
asked about atheists, I was told that
they are not the problem (atheism has
gone out of fashion, anyway), but the
Christian students who are not asking
the academic questions, who are seemingly unaware that there are questions
to be asked. Indifference is the real
problem, to get someone to commit
himself to something. "The university," one chaplain quoted wryly, "is
a hotbed of cold feet."
In the area of the academic question
the chaplains find most of their work
is with senior and graduate students.
The campus chaplains exist in a
curious shadowland at present. They
are appointed by their denominations
and are not university chaplains in any
direct way. There is, however, a Senate
committee known as the University
Religious Council, which serves as a
liaison between chaplains and the
administration. On that committee are
five members of faculty, representatives
of each student religious club and their
chaplains or religious advisers, plus
representatives of the theological
The chaplains have no church
buildings, no offices. When a student
or faculty member seeks them out,
they see him in their own homes, or
the Board Room of the Student
Christian Movement hut, or in some
as yet unclaimed tree.
How, then, do the chaplains make
contact with their student parishioners?
Initially, there are the registration
cards on which religious affiliation is
shown. These are used for mailings to
16 inform the students that the chaplains
are here and where they may be
reached. There are also a fair number
of referrals from parishes.
After that, the chaplain's problem,
as Jack Shaver expresses it, is to get
visible. He goes to student activities
and makes himself known. Most of
these affairs are open invitation, but
there are also meetings to which the
chaplain receives a personal invitation.
Mr. Shaver's experience is that there is
always at least one student who seeks
him out for a private talk after any
student meeting at which he has been
Some of the chaplains make
parochial calls; others prefer to have
the students come to them—they get
"a more honest answer."
And the response to all this? In
numbers, small as compared with a
regular parish, but the percentage of
consultations, they say, where the
chaplain hits a significant depth is
much higher.
I said that the chaplains had no
churches to use as a base for their
work. There are two exceptions. St.
Mark's College and the Presbyterians
have chapels which are used by the
students. The latter has a skeletal
church organization, but its denominational slant is minimized as far as
possible and students of all denominations come to services. It has heavy
mid-week use also by such a variety of
groups that Dr. Ross found he must
establish a roster; some embarrassing
conflicts have arisen in the past. The
Anglican, Mr. Alan Jackson, is seeking
to establish a student congregation for
a 9:30 service at St. Anselm's.
All this has been about the chaplain
and the student, but in point of fact
it does not cover the chaplain's complete role on campus; he has a ministry
to faculty as well which he regards as
equally important. If students take up
more of his time, it is simply that
there are more of them.
Sometimes, too, the chaplain finds
himself in a supporting role for someone else's ministry. This can occur
when a student, or it may be a member
of faculty, sees himself with a pastoral
office, and then the chaplain is called
upon to support him in his efforts.
The chaplains also have the
responsibility of interpreting the academic community to the conventional
community, that is, the people outside
the gates. They find that they them-
Member of first
W. P. Argue
On august 2nd of the summer just
past a member of UBC's first convocation celebrated his ninety-seventh
birthday. This was William P. Argue
and that first convocation was held in
Victoria in 1912 when Mr. Argue was
a mere youth of forty-five.
In point of even more interesting
fact, W. P. Argue is probably the only
living member of the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning,
otherwise the Board of Governors for
McGill University College of British
Columbia, which held its first, organizational, meeting in 1906. At that
meeting he was elected its secretary.
Mr. Argue had moved westwards
from his Ontario birthplace in easy
stages. After passing through the public
schools of his native province, he went
to the University of Manitoba where
he took a degree in 1888. Following
that, he taught in Ontario and Manitoba until 1903 when he came to Vancouver to be superintendent of schools.
Six years later he dropped out of
education in a professional capacity
but continued to be actively occupied
with it. Besides serving on the Senate
of the University of British Columbia,
as one of its first members, he was a
member of the Board of Governors of
Union College from 1932 - 1958 and
since that time an honorary governor.
For ten years, from 1941-1951, he
was chairman of the Board during a
period when the college co-operated
with the Department of National Defence in allowing part of its building
to be used, first as an RCAF training
school, later for military hospital purposes. He saw the college through extensive adjustments for the increase in
its work after the war, and its preliminary planning for a financial campaign and expansion program, undertaken in 1955, which provided new
buildings and an expanded faculty.
Mr. Argue never lost interest in
elementary education, and in his seventies and eighties was a regular visitor
to primary classrooms, observing methods and results, particularly with regard
to the teaching of phonics. Even after
he became blind in his late years, he
was dictating a book on phonics.
Mrs. Argue, who was for many years
music critic for The Vancouver Province, and a charter member of the
Women's Musical Society, died in February 1964. Of their two sons, both
graduates of UBC, Mr. Ralph Argue
died five years ago. Dr. C. W. (Bill)
Argue is Dean of Science of the University of New Brunswick.
selves identify with the academic
community rather than the outside.
Finally, each June, over a period of
several days, the chaplains meet with
the various university departments to
learn what is new. They of all people
must keep abreast of the changing
campus scene.
To conclude with the students, what
problems, apart from academic questions, do they bring to the chaplains?
Are the chaplains on twenty-four hour
call? When I asked that question, a
chuckle—would "grim" be the adjective to describe it?—went around the
table.   Night   duty   begins,   perhaps,
after a meeting, about 10:30 p.m., when
some student approaches the chaplain
guest with "Have you a minute, sir?"
That is the opening gambit for a
session that is good to last until 1:30
at the earliest.
Then there are the family crises,
demanding instant counselling in the
small hours, and the accidents which
call for the chaplain to sit up all night
in the hospital with anxious friends or
relatives. There is no such thing as an
office day. "A chaplain is vulnerable
and available." Perhaps that phrase
sums up the university chaplain
17 Our literary quarterly reviewed
Stanley E. Read,
Professor of English
Canadian Literature, a quarterly of
criticism and review, made its initial
appearance in the late summer of 1959.
Published by the University of British
Columbia and edited by George
Woodcock, it is now slightly more
than five years old—a vigorous,
healthy, and significant journal, acknowledged as such by writers and
critics throughout Canada as well as
in many other parts of the world.
Its birth was no mere accident, and
its steady growth from infancy to
maturity has not been the result of
chance. It was a planned child; it has
been carefully nurtured by a brilliant
and devoted editor; and has been
generously supported by its publisher,
by the Koerner Foundation and the
Humanities Research Council, by a
small group of volunteer assistants,
such as Inglis Bell, Donald Stephens
and Basil Stuart-Stubbs, to name but a
few, and by its subscribers.
r | iHE gestation period was elephan-
•*- tine. I cannot recall now where the
original seed came from, but it was
perhaps from Neal Harlow, then university librarian. But I do know that
even in the earliest planning stage the
concept of a university literary journal
received the active support of the
university's president, Dr. Norman
MacKenzie, for he had long hoped for
the establishment of a university
quarterly in western Canada.
In short, some years before 1959 a
representative committee was established and debate opened. It was
quickly agreed that a journal, to be
published by the university, was a
"good thing." But what should be its
George Woodcock
purpose, its scope, its limitations? It
was finally resolved, but only after
numerous and protracted meetings,
that the journal should be devoted to
the examination and appraisal of
Canadian literature and its makers,
past and present. No such journal
existed. The University of Toronto
Quarterly, Queen's Quarterly, and the
Dalhousie Review were all established
on broader bases, all served different
THE choice of editor came next.
Here there was no debate. George
Woodcock was on the campus, he was
the man. How fortunate for all concerned, especially for the unborn baby,
that Mr. Woodcock, like Barkis, was
"willin'." He had—and has—all of the
qualities    the    position    required.    A
writer of biographies and books of
travel, a critic of international reputation, a well known figure in the worlds
of radio and television, a fine teacher
of European and English literature, a
person of extreme sensitivity in the
realm of aesthetics, he had stature,
dignity, and incredible intellectual discipline. He was, moreover, that all too
rare individual in our modern society,
a humanist, deeply interested in the
welfare of man, and a tireless fighter
for intellectual freedom and personal
liberties. From the very first issue of
Canadian Literature his touch has
been right and his taste beyond
fcj   question.
His first editorial reflected the man
and established the policies on which
the journal was to thrive:
Proust's Madame Verdurin thought
that the ideal hospitality was that
which restricted itself to the exclus-
iveness of the "little clan." Canadian
Literature seeks to establish no clan,
little or large. It will not adopt a
narrowly academic approach nor will
it try to restrict its pages to any
school of criticism or any class of
writers. It is published by a university,
but many of its present and future
contributors live and work outside
academic circles. . . . Good writing,
writing that says something fresh and
valuable on literature in Canada is
what we seek, no matter where it
originates. It can be in English or in
French, and it need not necessarily
be by Canadians. . . .
On these terms Canadian Literature,
a bilingual child, came to life. And it
was  a  handsome  child.  Robert  Reid,

the noted typographer, designed the
opening number and established the
format of all subsequent issues. To the
printing, Mr. C. Morriss of Morriss
Printing, Victoria, brought loving care
for every little detail. The result—one
of the most handsome journals, in its
own dignified way, anywhere in the
SINCE its inception Canadian Literature has published works by well
over two hundred contributors, including a veritable host of distinguished
writers whose names are well known to
most readers of the Chronicle: Roderick
Haig-Brown, Ethel Wilson, A. J. M.
Smith, Earle Birney, Hugh MacLennan, Pierre Berton, Mordecai Rich-
ler, Roy Fuller, Warren Tallman,
Gilles Marcotte, Jean-Charles Falardeau, Gerard Tougas, Robert Heilman,
Roy Daniells, Margaret Laurence, Margaret Ormsby, and F. H. Soward. And
with so many writers of such widely
varied interests contributing to its
pages, the journal has been able to
offer to its readers a rich and rewarding menu.
A look at the contents of the first
number reveals the pattern that has
basically been retained in subsequent
issues. In all, there were six articles,
three review articles, nine short reviews, and two brief items under the
headings of "Opinions  and  Notes."
The leading articles ranged across
wide and divergent fields. Roderick
Haig-Brown wrote on "The Writer in
Isolation"; A. I. M. Smith reappraised
the poetry of Duncan Campbell Scott;
F. W. Watt looked at the wonderful
world found in the novels of the Rev.
Charles W. Gordon—the once-popular
"Ralph Connor"; Gerard Tougas presented a balance sheet of French-Canadian literature in his "Bilan d'une
Litterature Naissante"; Hugo McPherson reviewed the writings of
Gabrielle Roy; and F. W. Mandel
examined the criticism of Northrop
Frye. It was a fruitful beginning.
Departing slightly from the pattern
of the first number, certain later issues
have focussed their attention on particular writers. No. 8 is a notable
illustration. It was "A Special Malcolm
Lowry Issue," and will certainly remain for many years to come essential
reading for anyone interested in Lowry
as a person and as a writer. Not only
did it include a number of brilliant
critical articles on Lowry, but it also
published for the first time a number
of Lowry's poems and letters, and presented the first half of an extensive
bibliography of the works of Lowry
prepared by Earle Birney with the
assistance of Margerie Lowry, the
widow of the author. Issue No. 9
brought this bibliography to its
Issue No. 15 was "A Salute to A. J.
M. Smith" (it contained, by the way,
a review of Smith by Smith); and No.
19 "A Salute to E. J. Pratt," that Titan
of Canadian poetry who died very
shortly after the publication of this
tribute to him.
WITH No. 3, the winter issue of
1960, came the first of an annual
feature which has added greatly to the
scholarly significance of Canadian Literature. This was a checklist, or
bibliography, of all Canadian literature
works—French and English—published during the year just ended. It
included fiction, biography, poetry,
drama, and essays, as well as critical
works appearing in periodicals. The
compilers of this first bibliography
were Inglis Bell, A. E. Ford, and Carl
F. Klink.
Today, as this quarterly moves into
its sixth year of publication, it can
be surely said that here is a mature
and established journal of prime importance. It has been warmly praised
by such periodicals as the New Statesman and Nation and the Times Literary Supplement. From noted writers,
publishers, and librarians have come
numerous tributes, eulogizing both
content and appearance. And when A.
J. M. Smith produced his anthology of
criticism of Canadian novelists—Masks
of Fiction—exactly half of the articles
selected had appeared in the columns
of Canadian Literature.
In stature, as judged by circulation
figures, it stands high, for among
Canadian university quarterlies it is
surpassed only by the long established
Queen's Quarterly. But, in the light of
its quality and its goals, its circulation
really should be much greater. It is a
periodical that should be in every
school library across Canada; it is a
periodical that no one really interested
in Canadian writers and writing can
afford to neglect. It is always informative, frequently challenging, and often
a sheer delight to read. For Canadian
Literature is not a pedantic journal
that discusses literature in esoteric
terms.    It    is,    rather,    in    its    kind,
literature itself.
19 The part alumni play
Alumni annual giving steps into a
new role this January, one that it
will play for the next five years.
Throughout this period it will provide
the machinery for soliciting alumni on
behalf of the 3 Universities Capital
Fund drive for $28 million. At the same
time it will continue solicitation for the
traditional Annual Giving responsibilities. Also, the Joint Alumni Council has
approved the principle of merging
UBC's Alumni Annual Giving with
that of Victoria University for the
duration of the campaign.
Co-operation among alumni in the
next five years is vital to the overall
success of the 3 Universities Capital
Fund campaign. In keeping with this
spirit this co-operative scheme can
play a unique role by laying the
foundations for an Alumni Annual
Giving program for the unborn alumni
of Simon Fraser University.
The UBC Alumni Association in a
working paper prepared for its Board
members gave a clear statement of its
five year objectives for A.A.G. It said
Alumni Annual Giving should:

greater need, alumni have an opportunity to come closer to a real solution to the many long-term problems
facing higher education in British
Leaders of Alumni Annual Giving
are confident that after studying all
aspects of the problem, graduates will
realize the importance of making a
substantial investment in the future.
British Columbia citizens must be
assured that tomorrow's leaders of our
industrial, business, professional and
cultural life can be provided with the
buildings, equipment, faculty, staff and
facilities so urgently needed for undergraduate and graduate training.
The 1965 appeal to alumni will
emphasize strong support for the 3
Universities Capital Fund. Alumni
will be approached annually for their
gifts during the five year period. They
can make five year pledges if they wish
or continue their usual practice of an
annual contribution.
A  definite  alumni  goal  is  now  in
preparation and will soon be established as well as goals for classes and
areas. Alumni from within each class
and area will have a voice in the goals
which are to be set for their group.
A major portion of the funds must
go to meet the tremendous expansion
needed in buildings at the three universities, but monies will definitely be
set aside to cover existing Alumni
Annual Giving programs. In recent
years UBC's A.A.G. has supported
mainly the MacKenzie Alumni Regional Scholarships, the President's
Fund, the Library, Athletics and
Recreational facilities, and the Frederic
Wood Theatre Foundation. Other
areas have also received support, including Victoria College. As full-
fledged Victoria University it started
its own fund last year. Before the end
of the five year period Simon Fraser
may have calls on A.A.G.
The 1965 campaign for Alumni
Annual Giving will continue to be a
strong year-long drive. The type of
program has already received much
thought. It will build on the 1964
program but the emphasis will shift
to personal contact. The three universities will establish a joint A.A.G.
committee to organize and direct the
Alumni, having been the beneficiaries in their undergraduate days of the
physical plant provided by others, are
in a better position than most to
understand the University's needs.
With this special responsibility for the
Capital Fund, it is confidently expected that they will lead the way and
endorse the campaign early with a
donation. rj

Canada needs more university-trained leaders in all departments of her national life.  The universities need
more physical  facilities to provide those leaders.
There we have the basic facts behind the $68.7 million development and expansion program of British Columbia's
three public universities.
The need is here and now and urgent and if it is not met, all Canadians suffer.

In British Columbia it is expected

admission to university will rise from

1970. That 25=

estimated population of 2,050,000, an
appreciable increase over the present
population of 1,738,000.
Where are these young people to go?
Certainly they cannot all be crowded
into the existing classrooms and
In 1922 a student body of some 1200
young men and women clamoured for
university facilities on the Point Grey
campus. They clamoured successfully.
Unless the expansion program laid
down by our three public universities is implemented, there will be far
more than 1200 young people, as deserving as their forerunners of 1922,
who will clamour, but unsuccessfully,
for admission to university.
The need for more university accommodation, however, is larger than the
need of this "special interest" group—
it is the need of the whole community.
Business, industry, the professions, the
social and civil services, education
itself, all are demanding an increasing
number of highly-trained individuals.
And the jobs of those who do not proceed to university will depend on the
leadership of the others who do. The
future of all Canadians is involved in
The Macdonald Report detailed the
needs in higher education of British
Columbia. Working along the lines
suggested in the Report, the three
public universities have embarked on a
planned, complementary development.
These three—The University of British
Columbia, University of Victoria, and
Simon Fraser University—are working
together not only in planning new
facilities and in incorporating the
latest methods and systems, but also in
seeking the financial capital to carry
out their plans.
Through their co-ordinated programs they will be able to take care of
both the needs of the community for
leadership and the needs of the young
people capable of being trained to give
this leadership. They will do this without  wasteful  duplication  of  facilities.
The professional schools of the
province will continue to be concentrated at UBC as also most of the
programs of graduate studies. These
latter will be complemented by small
graduate schools at the other two universities, since only in that way will

To take the pressure of undergraduate enrolment off The University
of British Columbia, her sister institutions will stress the faculties of Arts,
Science and Education.
22 Metallurgy   Building,   UBC.   Executive  architects: McCarter, Nairne & Partners.
CURRENT construction at The
University of British Columbia is
already well on the way to caring for
undergraduate needs for many years
to come. A multi-purpose classroom
building and a building for the Faculty
of Education, now under hammer and
saw and mason's trowel, allow for
continued growth of undergraduate
enrolment. The development and expansion program which is dependent
on the present Three Universities
Capital Fund campaign provides in the
main for teaching and research, professional schools and the library. This
is set out in detail in the table at the
end of this report.
The development of the graduate
schools is vital to the whole program
of increased university education and
training. For a successful career in
university teaching, a PhD degree is
almost mandatory. In British Columbia
alone the anticipated enrolment in
post-grade 12 institutions in the next
few years will call for 200 additional
faculty annually. Yet, as things stand
at present, in the whole of Canada
only about 300 PhD's are graduated
annually to meet staff replacements
and additions amounting to 1200.
In the past, our Canadian universities have been able to fill the gap by
recruiting many of their staff from
other countries. Those other countries
are now having their own expansion
problems and we must assume the
responsibility for educating our
qualified personnel.
Next is the matter of decentralization of facilities. As the Macdonald
Report makes clear, in British Columbia this is almost as vital as the graduate schools. If the university enrolment
projected for 1970, some 33,500 students, were all to descend on UBC,
obviously that campus would be inundated to a point which would critically distort the whole structure of the
university. Furthermore, some dispersal of our universities will contribute

greatly to raising the level of the whole
intellectual and cultural life of the citizens of the province. Therefore we
have the University of Victoria, serving mainly Vancouver Island, and
Simon Fraser University which will
be readily accessible to students from
the lower Fraser Valley.
The University of Victoria which
began as an affiliate first of McGill
University and then of The University
of British Columbia, has been, since
July 1963, a fully-accredited university.
It is currently engaged in developing
a new campus at Gordon Head on
Vancouver Island, necessary because
the old Lansdowne site is too small to
accommodate enrolment growth expected during the next 10 years. While
at present both campuses are used, it is
essential for full efficiency that the
entire university be transferred to the
new site and this will be done when
funds become available for the needed
facilities. The Gordon Head campus is
sufficiently large to permit the university to accept 10,000 students when
this becomes necessary.
Simon Fraser University opens its
doors for the first time in 1965, prepared to receive 2,000 first-and second-
year students, and ultimately 18,000.
They plan gradual expansion into
fields other than Arts, Science and
Education in keeping with student
needs and the interests of business,
industry and the professions.
The cost of the five-year capital
program of the three public universities is $68.7 million. Of this the
Provincial Government has promised
$40.7 million. For the remaining $28
million the universities look to their
friends among alumni, faculties and
staffs, corporations, industries and
foundations. They ask them to invest
this amount in the future of this province and this country, in the future
of the children of Canada, and in the
future of all our communities.

Guideposts -
a new report
The alumni association said it before,
a President's Committee says it now.
There must be something in it.
It is interesting to compare The State
of the University report prepared by an
Alumni Association committee under
the general chairmanship of Stuart
Keate and published in the Autumn
1960 Chronicle with the recently issued
Guideposts to Innovation, the report of
a President's Committee on Academic
Guideposts is a document which,
says the foreword, "represents an
attempt to define some goals for the
University and to seek ways of achieving them." While the document was
prepared after wide consultation with
members of the Faculty and with a
large consultative committee, it does
not represent an official position of the
University. It is a document for study
by the various governing bodies of the
LJniversity. Interested individuals may
obtain copies from the University
The two reports, that of the Alumni
Association and the more recent one of
the President's Committee, discuss a
number of the same problems.
Guideposts says—"If the University
is to succeed in its goals, it cannot concentrate on the classroom to the exclusion of collective student life outside the classrooms." The Alumni report: ". . . The most privileged person
on the campus today is the student living in residence." Housing should be
regarded, it says, not as mere living
accommodation but as a significant and
vital part of higher education.
Guideposts recommends "that UBC
conduct full-scale trials with such
examinations [standard admission tests
by major Canadian universities],
accompanied by carefully-designed follow-up studies to test their predictive
value." The Alumni report recommended that The University of British
Columbia set its own entrance examinations and that applicants for entrance "be required to write either (a)
entrance examinations set by the University or (b) until such University examinations are instituted, suitable junior matriculation examinations."
The State of the University report
was concerned about student counsel-
Honorary degrees
H. Rocke Robertson
The university welcomed home an
old friend and made a new one when
it conferred honorary degrees on Dr.
H. Rocke Robertson and Mr. Hugh R.
Trevor-Roper at the Fall Congregation
in October.
Dr. Robertson, a native of Victoria
and a graduate of McGill University
where he received the degrees of bachelor of science and doctor of medicine,
was chief of surgery at the Vancouver
General Hospital and professor and
head of the department of surgery at
UBC. During the war he commanded
a Canadian Field Surgical Unit overseas and returned to Vancouver in 1944
as chief of surgery at Vancouver Mili
tary Hospital. After his discharge in
1945, with the rank of lieutenant-
colonel, he was appointed director of
surgery at Shaughnessy Hospital.
Dr. Robertson has been principal
and vice chancellor of McGill University since 1962. He received the
honorary degree of doctor of science
from UBC.
Dr. Trevor - Roper, who gave the
congregation address, is Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford
University and currently is a visiting
professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. The general public
knows him as the author of "The Last
Days of Hitler", published in 1947, a
book which was researched at the request of the British Intelligence. He
is also the author of a number of
scholarly works. UBC conferred an
LL.D. degree on this distinguished
World leadership cannot rest solely
upon superior force, vast wealth, or
preponderant technology. Only the
elevation of its goals and the excellence
of its conduct entitle one nation to ask
others to follow its lead. These are
things of the spirit. If we appear to

concern for man's ultimate destiny. . .

ling. "The most desirable form of contact between student and faculty, an
informal type of counselling," it said,
"is becoming increasingly difficult with
the growth of UBC and some means
must be found to supplement the formal program which has developed as
a necessary result of that growth."
Guideposts, devoting several paragraphs to the subject of counselling,
says, "It is particularly important that
first-year students establish some direct
personal contact with a faculty member as early in their university careers
as possible."
The matter of university size was
considered by the State of the University committee. Almost all its members
agreed "that some measure of decentralization—such as an on-campus college structure, or the establishment of
a year-round quarter system—. . . must
be given serious consideration."
Guideposts, considering the problem
from the same standpoint of academic
effectiveness, listed the desirable effects
that might be achieved by another system than the present academic year,
and concluded that, with the possible
exception of the item relating to economics, "UBC could best further these
objectives if the academic year were to
consist of two terms (Fall and Spring)
both 13 teaching weeks in length and
entered in September only, and a Summer Term of 13 teaching weeks entered
in  May.
Now that Guideposts to Innovation
is the subject of widespread discussion,
a rereading of The State of the University report might prove both interesting
and rewarding.
26 Graham House
now at Work
Graceful staircase  in  Graham  House.
Social work had its day on October
3rd when some 500 alumni and friends
came out to the campus to visit the
school in its new quarters, the Ronald
Graham House. While the Graham
House is only temporary quarters for
the school, it is still a vast improvement on the huts and barn which have
hitherto been its home.
Graham House provides spacious
offices for staff, middling sized lecture
and good seminar rooms, but students
in the larger classes will have to travel
to other buildings. To the visitor on
that bright Saturday of the At Home
it seemed that the main problem
would be keeping students' eyes off
the view and on the lecturer.
The very successful "Social Work
Day on the Campus" concluded with
a dinner in Brock Lounge, when 360
guests sat down, including Dr. C. W.
Topping at the head table. The dinner
address was given by Dr. Gordon
Hearn, Director of the new School of
Social Work at Portland State College.
McKeen property
It was too good a bargain to miss and
so the University bought Yorkeen
when the opportunity presented itself
last October. This former home of
Senator S. S. McKeen was purchased
from St. Mark's Theological College at
the same price they had paid for it a
short time previously, $100,000.
Yorkeen is a 3'/2 acre estate immediately adjoining Graham House,
another 3'/2 acre estate, which was
donated  to  the  University  last  year.
The two properties, entirely surrounded by campus, are now an
integral part of the campus.
"The dollar value of this land to the
University in years to come just canot
be estimated, quite apart from its
aesthetic value," President Macdonald
said. "The University will have a
problem to raise the cash, but the
Board of Governors decided to take
advantage of this unique opportunity
to purchase."
Luncheon for
The university's students and graduates who carried Canada's colors at the
Olympic games in Tokyo were honored
at a luncheon in the Faculty Club on
October 26.
Chancellor Ross presided at the
luncheon which was attended by eight
Olympic contestants currently registered as students, nine graduates, and
the Canadian sprinter Harry Jerome,
University of Oregon student and a
bronze medal winner in Tokyo.
The two gold medal winners, George
Hungerford and Roger Jackson who
won the pairs without cox event in
rowing are UBC students. Other students at the luncheon were Peter
Buckland, Lee Wright, David Miller,
David Overton, Eldon Worobieff,
Daryl Sturdy.
The graduates included Victor
Warren, John Young, John Larsen,
Marc Lemieux, Wayne Pretty, Richard
Bordewick, Max Wieczorek, Thomas
Gray, and coach of the eight-oar
crew, Glen Mervyn.

Great Trekker
George  Cunningham
Photo by Paul Clancy
This year, for only the second time in
history, the Great Trekker award went
to one who never attended The University of British Columbia. The recipient of the award for 1964 was
George Cunningham, chairman of the
Board of Governors and good friend of
the University for thirty years in his
capacity of Board member.
When Mr. Cunningham joined the
Board, the student population was
about 2,300 and the total government
grant $250,000 a year. Now with
15,700 students, UBC receives in
government grants $15 million. Those
figures mean a great deal to Mr.
Cunningham as during much of his
time he was finance chairman of the
Board. Probably, though, it means
more to him that he had an important
role in the selection of UBC's two
most recent presidents, Dr. MacKenzie
and Dr. Macdonald.
Mr. Cunningham, a pioneer Vancouver pharmacist and founder of the
firm that bears his name, has been
honoured by having a campus building
named after him—the George
Cunningham Pharmacy Building.

So Who Skis?
She has a point! Today ski fashions go wherever
the snow blows cold . . . even if it's just to enjoy
the brisk air while walking 'round the block. So
the Bay's gathered Swiss sweaters, flowered
jackets, bold trimmed boots, head-hugging helmets
... a fabulous collection of fashions that ski
when they have to . . . but look great if they do
nothing more than loll around the lodge. Whether
it's action or fashion you're interested in . . .
you'll find the fun-to-wear clothes at the Bay.
P.S. We have men's ski clothes to make him look
good, too ... on the slopes or off!
