Good News. The Federal subsidy of $1.50 per capita,
based on the population of each province, not on the
number of university students in that province, has been
increased to a total of $2.00. Your Board of Management will, with the concerted efforts of other universities' Alumni in Canada, attempt to have Federal aid
increased. Surely graduate education, which aids the
industrial and professional life of Canada, and contributes to our defence, justifies further assistance. If
Ottawa were to pay to the universities $500 per year
for every student proceeding to a doctoral degree, in
any field, our institutions could not only survive but
possibly compete with the U.S. and the U.K. in the
graduate field. I hope the day is not long delayed when
some political party campaigning in a Federal election
will accept Dr. Wilder Penfield's statesmanlike suggestion that for each dollar contributed by Ottawa for
operating costs, a like amount shall be contributed by
that government for endowment, thus giving a greater
guarantee of academic freedom to Canadian universities
than they now possess.
Matching Grants. The Budget speech in Victoria
states that the present rate at which the Provincial government has been matching the $10,000,000 already
contributed by U.B.C.'s friends and backers will be
speeded up. With the certainty that within the next ten
short years there will be 30,000 young British Columbians seeking higher education, somewhere in the province, I should not be surprised if the capital programme
required for university building in B.C. will near the
$50,000,000 mark. Quebec province has already embarked on a programme costing $175,000,000 for just
this purpose.
University Hospital. The dramatic debate in the closing hours of the 1961 session of the Legislature, involving our late lamented supporter George Hobbs, Alex.
Matthew, Ray Perrault and the Premier, has brought
forth a clear and welcome statement in the Speech from
the Throne in the 1962 Session, of the government's
intention to develop a University hospital, for diagnosis,
treatment, teaching and research, on the Point Grey
campus.
Reactions. Readers' reactions to my suggestions for
further action, outlined on this page in the previous
issue, have been very interesting. The Vancouver Sun
ran an editorial entitled "Alumni Eye the Hustings",
concerning the need for more Alumni as candidates for
public office. A very thoughtful suggestion has come
from a graduate in Eastern Canada on the subject of
trade union contributions to university scholarship and
building funds. Another member has suggested that
unions be challenged to give block contributions equal
in amount to those given to U.B.C. by their employing
companies. Further, a company manager has underlined
the need for recognition by management and executives
that employees should be able to sit in the provincial
Legislature without losing their jobs.
The forthright remarks of the Victoria College
Council and Principal Hickman on trying to provide
first class education with bargain basement budgets
have our hearty endorsement. The tax-payers can help
educational institutions only if the problems are made
matters of urgent public business.
The Alumni plan to award one entrance scholarship
for each electoral riding has already brought this note
from one of our graduates from the Interior: "I was
very pleased to hear that the number of scholarships
had been increased and that some move was being
made towards getting the MLAs involved in higher
education if only on a selection committee. I hope that
they can be made to understand the impossible situation into which they are permitting our university education to drift."
The Future. I suppose that in the long run the factors which will determine the quality of education which
can be provided by U.B.C. will be the loyalty of its
graduates and the public respect in which they are
held individually. A generation of graduates more dedicated to public service than most of us have been, will
make all the difference. If any graduate wants a thrill
let him spend twenty-four hours on the campus at
Point Grey. From early morning till long past midnight
there is a constant river of life passing through the
gates, adding daily to the intellectual capital of a great
province. Let him go to see the excellently planned
campus under construction at Gordon Head. Recently I
found the bulldozers digging the foundations for the
Lecture Room Building there, on the same day, actually,
that we buried Mrs. Henry Esson Young, one of the
earliest champions of a university in British Columbia,
and the inspiration and guide of her husband as he
founded it and helped it to prosper. One has only to see
the unremitting continuity of this educational process
and to contemplate its extension to other areas of the
province, to realize the dimensions of the obligation laid
upon us by the University's motto, "Tuum Est". Geoff Andrew to new Post
Named Executive Director of
Canadian Universities Foundation
Dean Geoffrey C. Andrew, deputy to
the President of the University since
1947 and professor in the English department, left for Ottawa February 28
to take up new duties on March 1 as
executive director of the Canadian
Universities Foundation, the executive
agency of the National Conference of
Canadian  Universities  and Colleges.
The Canadian Universities Foundation
represents NCCUC in federal matters
and on national bodies, provides important research and information services
and distributes, on behalf of NCCUC,
federal funds for higher education. An
international office will be opened soon
which will work with the external aid
office of the department of external affairs on arrangements for scholarship
students from foreign countries.
The new CUF director, who is a graduate of Dalhousie with a master's degree
from Balliol College, Oxford, has special
qualifications for the post. Before coming to UBC and his post as deputy to
President MacKenzie he spent four years
in   Ottawa   in   federal   information   ser
vices, for the last two years as director
of the Canadian Information Service,
then as chief of the information division
of the department of external affairs. In
1953 he received a Carnegie Corporation
grant to study methods of university administration in Canada, the U.S., Great
Britain and Europe. In 1959 he was appointed by the New Zealand government
to serve on a commission to study the
future of higher education in that country.
Dean and Mrs. Andrew will be missed
in Vancouver where they have taken an
active part in community affairs. Dean
Andrew has been a director of the Community Chest, chairman of the Vancouver branch of the Canadian Institute of
International Affairs, president of the
UN Association, president of the Vancouver Community Arts Council, a governor of the Anglican Theological College, director of the western division of
the Canadian Institute for the Blind,
vice-president of the World University
Service, and on the national council of
the Adult Education Association. He was
vice-president of the Vancouver International Festival from 1958 to 1961,
and last year chairman of the Tattoo
Committee of the Festival.
Mrs. Andrew will leave for Ottawa
at the end of May with their five children, the two youngest Joan and Katherine, and the three eldest who are all
attending UBC. Alison, BA'61, is taking
fifth year education; Edward is in 4th
year arts, and Caroline who is in 2nd
year arts plans to complete her degree
at UBC.
INSTITUTE OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS
$20,000 in grants for wide scope labor research
Eight faculty members and five graduate students have been awarded grants
totalling more than $20,000 for projects
sponsored by the Institute of Industrial
Relations at the University of British
Columbia.
U.B.C. faculty members who have
been seconded to the Institute for research projects are as follows:
Professor Stuart M. Jamieson, department of economics, to carry out "A comparative study of theories of industrial
conflict."
A. Milton Moore, department of economics, to investigate "The relation between price and wage increases in British
Columbia and Canada."
Professor A. W. R. Carrothers, faculty
of law, to study "Canadian law of collective bargaining."
The Institute is also supporting the
following faculty research projects:
Dr. Kaspar D. Naegele, study of occupations and professions; Dr. R. A. H.
Robson, study of the determinants of occupational choice; Dr. W. H. Read,
series of studies of communications processes and their relations to morale, job
satisfaction and organizational functioning; A. J. Marriage, study of the attitudes of members of labor unions to
organized social welfare services, and
David C. Aird, a comparative study of
efficiency in the construction industry.
Five graduate students working on
masters theses have also received research fellowships and educational grants
from the Institute.
Research fellowships have been awarded as follows: Frank Parkin—$1500—
"The wildcat strike and the community";
R. C. Baum—$1500—"The political and
social philosophy of the trade union",
and Joseph D. Mooney—$1500—"The
causes of changes in the percentage
share of labor in the national income."
Educational grants were made to
Helen Sturdy—$750—"A study of the
conciliation process", and James Meekison—$750—"The trends and changes in
wage rates and productivity in the mining industry in B.C."
The Institute of Industrial Relations
was established at U.B.C. in 1960 to engage in an interdisciplinary programme
of research and education at U.B.C. and
in the community.
The community advisory committee
of the Institute is composed of representatives from labor, industry, government, faculty and the general public. U.B.C. Admission Standards revised
GETTING TOUGHER
New regulations affecting admission to
the University of British Columbia have
been approved by the University Senate.
The new regulations, which will apply
to student registration for the first time
in 1962, were recommended by a Senate
Committee which is reviewing the University's academic policies and programmes.
The purpose of the new regulations is
to try to ensure that students who come
to the University are academically qualified to handle their University work successfully. At the present time, too many
of those who come with the present minimum requirements are unable to handle
University work and fail.
The first regulation states that: students entering U.B.C. from grade 12
must have full standing by recommendation or by departmental examinations in
June. Candidates who have to write supplementary examinations in August will
no longer be admitted to University that
September.
Studies carried out at the University
show that of those who have to write
supplemental and pass, approximately
85% fail their freshman year completely
and less than 2% pass their examinations in all subjects.
The second regulation states that students taking a full senior matriculation
year in the schools will be given no
credit by the University unless they pass
in at least three of the five subjects required in the Department of Education
examinations conducted in June. Those
who do not pass in at least three subjects
will not be admitted to University until
they complete their senior matriculation
programme.
This regulation merely applies to those
who are taking the equivalent of the first
year University programme in the
schools, a policy which has been for
some years applied to those who are taking the first year programme in the University. Here again the effect is to attempt to ensure that the qualifications of
those entering University will be adequate to support their educational aims.
The third regulation states that students from outside B.C. will be admitted only if they have obtained senior
matriculation and if they meet the entrance requirements of the University of
their own country or province.
The regulation also provides that if
senior matriculation is not offered where
the student is resident, consideration will
be given to admitting him with junior
matriculation or other appropriate qualifications.
The new regulations will go into effect
in 1962 but special consideration will be
given in individual cases to students who
find it impossible or very difficult to continue their senior matriculation studies
in their home centre.
The new regulations do not prevent
any student from continuing his academic education and they do not stop any
student entering the University at a later
date if he is successful in senior matriculation.
UBC's revision of admission standards
is part of a trend in Canada. The following item is taken from a report entitled
"Admission to University, 1961," prepared in the Research and Information
Service of the Canadian Universities
Foundation by Edward F. Sheffield, research officer for the Foundation:
Reports from the registrars of Canada's 43 degree-granting universities and
colleges which admit students at the junior or senior matriculation level show
that five raised their standards of admission in 1961.
One of these, the University of New
Brunswick, made no change affecting
students from its own province, but
raised from 50% to 60% the average
required of students from outside New
Brunswick who seek entry at the senior
matriculation level. (Additional changes
will take effect in 1962.) The University of Manitoba now requires applicants
in architecture and engineering to present senior matriculation standing with
an average of at least 60%; formerly,
no required average was specified.
Assumption University of Windsor
raised the required senior matriculation
average in arts, science and business administration from 50% to 60%. Students
entering any course at Carleton University (arts, science, commerce or journalism) at the junior matriculation level
were faced with the requirement of a
65% rather than a 60% average, and the
required senior matriculation average,
formerly unspecified, was set at 55%. The
Universite de Sherbrooke raised admission standards in arts, science, engineering, commerce and law.
In the previous three years, admission
requirements were measurably stiffened
by eight universities, two of which made
additional changes in 1961: Bishop's
(junior matriculation average up from
65% to 70%), McMaster (number of
required senior matriculation papers increased from eight to nine and average
of 60% specified), Manitoba (minimum
number of senior matriculation papers
required for admission to second year increased from four to five), Mount Allison, New Brunswick, St. Francis Xavier
and Carleton (junior matriculation average, formerly unspecified, set at 60%),
Ottawa (both junior and senior matriculation averages formerly unspecified, set
at 60%).

Winter  Centre
by Bus Phillips
UBC Athletic Director
Through the cooperative financing of
the University and the Alma Mater Society, and a gift from Senator Hartland de
M. Molson, the long awaited Winter
Sports Centre will be constructed on the
campus this summer, and will be ready
in time for our next year's hockey schedule. The Centre will include a standard
ice hockey rink seating 1500, and an
eight-sheet curling rink. The cost of the
two units is estimated at $500,000.00.
Father David Bauer — "Thunderbird" Ice Hockey Coach.
When Father David Bauer was transferred from St. Michael's of Toronto, to
St. Mark's College on the U.B.C. Campus,
our University gained one of the top ice
hockey coaches in Canada.
Born and raised in the Kitchener-
Waterloo area in Ontario, Father Bauer
played high school and city league
hockey. In 1945 he was a left-winger
and centre on the Oshawa General squad
that went on to win the Memorial Cup,
emblematic of Canadian junior hockey
supremacy.
Father Bauer attended St. Michael's and
the University of Toronto, and spurned
professional offers for the priesthood. His
brother Bobby went on in the Boston
Bruin chain to attain stardom as the third
member of the famed "Kraut Line" along
with Milt Schmidt and Woody Dumart.
Father Bauer returned to St. Michael's
as a staff member and also acted as manager of the Majors, and last year coached
the team to their Memorial Cup victory
over the Edmonton Oil Kings.
When he took over the coaching duties
in January, the "Thunderbirds" had not
played any games, and so the team was
not prepared for the tough initial series
with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Father
Bauer is convinced that there is plenty of
The Boat Race and UBC
by Al  Fotheringham
On the first Saturday of April along
the murky Thames winding through the
brick jungle of the western reaches of
London, the world prestige of the U.B.C.
Thunderbird crew will be on display for
a country whose daily business is suspended for 18 minutes each year while
16 students pull oars in front of 100,000
spectators, the vast majority of whom
have never seen a university building.
The event of course is The Boat Race,
one of those stately and assured events
which give British life the permanency
that is such a contrast with this continent.
At this time of writing it is likely that
in both the Oxford and Cambridge shells
will be products of U.B.C.'s remarkable
rowing system. It has never happened in
the 108-year history of the race that two
Canadians have been on opposing crews.
That both are from one university is truly
remarkable and a reminder once again
that, aside from hockey, the only sport
in which Canada is of world calibre is
the rowing annually produced on junky
Coal Harbour.
The man who hopes to win his Blue
for Cambridge is blond John Lecky,
BA'61, captain of the U.B.C. crew which
won the silver medal behind the superb
German crew in the 1960 Rome Olympics. He's a 21-year-old student reading
law at Jesus College.
If things work out the way they deserve
for Frank Read, in the opposing shell
will be British Columbia's 1961 Rhodes
Scholar, John Madden, BA'59, who is
doing post-graduate work in nuclear physics at Magdalen College. The lanky 22-
year-old  has won two silver  medals  in
international competition with the U.B.C.
crew; at the British Empire Games in
1958 and the Pan-American Games in
1959.
If they successfully survive the gruelling competition for spots on the crews,
Madden and Lecky will take part in an
athletic event that is almost more ritual
than competition.
There are no printed rules which govern the race. There is no trophy, no title.
There is nothing which guarantees any
continuity in the event; the loser each
year merely challenges the winner for a
return engagement. It is simply The Boat
Race.
Two schools train intensively for five
months in the cruel English winter for
only one purpose: an annual test on an
unfamiliar course in an unfamiliar atmosphere. When it comes, the crews bring
the great tradition of Oxbridge into the
grimy metropolis and row an unusual
half-loop course of unusual length, four
miles, 374 yards; that length simply because that is the distance from Putney
Bridge to Mortlake Bridge.
Only wars can stay the stately competition. The intense pride of the crews ensures that the battle stays even; in 107
years Cambridge has won 59 times, Oxford, 47 times and in 1877 there was a
dead heat.
It is a fine example of the old English
gentlemanly attitude to sport, an attitude
that need not be pointed out has practically vanished. I think it only appropriate
that the whole thing was the idea, in
1829, of Charles Wordsworth, nephew of
the poet.
hockey talent on the campus, and with a
new rink, ideal practice times and a balanced schedule of intercollegiate games,
our hockey programme will show a rapid
improvement to the point where we will
be able to compete favourably with the
Prairie Universities.
National Advisory Council on
Fitness and Amateur Sports
Mr. R. F. Osborne, director of the
school of Physical Education and Recreation, has been named to represent
British Columbia on the National Advisory Council which will formulate policy
in connection with the five million dollar
Bill C-131, recently approved by the Federal Government. Mr. Osborne is well
qualified to give competent leadership in
the   development  of  amateur   sport   in
Canada. He is a past president of the
A.A.U. of Canada, has held executive
positions on Olympic, Pan-American and
British Empire and Commonwealth
Games and has coached and managed
several Canadian teams. He has been an
outstanding leader in physical education
for many years.
Mr. Allan McGavin, chairman of the
B. C. Amateur Sports Council and the
Pan-American Games Association was
also named, as the other representative
from British Columbia. Both Mr. McGavin and Mr. Osborne are conscious of
the significant contribution the Universities can and should make in the development of amateur sport; both are aware
of the need to co-ordinate the efforts of
all the amateur sport groups toward a
common objective. FACULTY NOTES

Dr. Friesen will return to Vancouver in
late April.
STUDENT PAPER
WINS AWARD
by Roger McAfee
The Ubyssey, now coming out thrice
weekly, was judged one of the two best
campus papers in Canada at the National Canadian University Press Conference
in Toronto over the Christmas holidays.
It shares the award with the University
of Toronto student paper, The  Varsity.
This is the first time The Ubyssey has
won the 33-year-old award.
A minor dispute over the method of
judging arose when Ryerson's Ryerson-
ian protested the interpretation of the
judges' reports. The poor losers from
Toronto instituted a referendum which
would have nullified the results and
awarded them the trophy. It was soundly
defeated by other members of CUP.
The Ubyssey is available to graduates
on a subscription basis.

The AMS has imported a Wisconsin
consultant to get its student union building programme moving. Porter Butts,
student union director at the University
of Wisconsin, spent three days on the
campus and accomplished more in that
time than the student committee had in
the previous ten months. His cost: $100

Dr. Naegele
to survey Nursing
Education
Kaspar D. Naegele, BA(McGill), AM-
(Columbia), PhD (Harvard), associate
professor of sociology, has been appointed
by the Canadian Nurses' Association to
direct its forthcoming study of nursing
education in Canada. The C.N.A. is the
official body representing the 60,000 professional nurses in Canada.
Dr. Naegele will be granted a year's
leave of absence to direct this nation-wide
survey. Its objective will be to ascertain
from the people in Canadian communities, especially those who are connected
with health and education, what the community's health needs are and hence how
nurses should be educated to meet these
needs. The survey, which is expected to
last two years and to end in 1963, will be
conducted in all ten provinces.
Dr. Naegele's academic awards have
included the Solvay Fellowship at McGill,
a University Fellowship at Columbia, a
Sigmund Livingstone Fellowship at Harvard, and a Ford Foundation faculty
grant.
The C.N.A.'s study of nursing education in Canada arises from a previous
survey which the Association made of
Canadian nursing schools. That survey,
which lasted two years, resulted in the
Association's finding that 84 per cent
of the schools surveyed failed to meet the
standards which it considered desirable.
Special lecturer in Forestry
J. Miles Gibson, O.B.E., DSc(N.B.),
former dean of the faculty of forestry at
the University of New Brunswick, has
been appointed a special lecturer at the
University of British Columbia.
Dr. Gibson, who retired earlier in 1961,
is lecturing on forest policy and administration in U.B.C.'s faculty of forestry.
Before joining the University of New
Brunswick as a professor of forestry in
1929 Dr. Gibson was a member of the
B.C. forest service. He was named dean
of forestry at U.N.B. in 1948.
Dr. Gibson prepared several reports on
forest problems in B.C. for the Vancouver
Foundation in 1955.
Dr. Johnson guest speaker
F. Henry Johnson, MA(Brit.Col.), D.-
Paed(Tor.), director of the elementary
division of the Faculty of Education, was
guest speaker at the Edmonton convention of the Alberta Teachers' Association,
February 8th and 9th, speaking on "New
Concepts in Elementary Education".
Mrs. March Keynote speaker
Mrs. Beryl E. March, BA(Brit. Col.),
a research associate in the department of
poultry science at the University of British
Columbia, gave the key address at the annual meeting of the Pacific Coast Ren-
derer's Association on February 9th and
10th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mrs. March addressed the conference
on the utilization of fats by poultry.
Mrs. March, who has been a member
of the U.B.C. staff since 1948, was awarded a Nuffield Commonwealth bursary in
1960 for advanced study at Cambridge
University, England.
UBC's Botanical Garden oldest in Canada
The oldest Botanical Garden in Canada
is believed that established at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver in
1912.
Extract from the New York Times
Friday, January 26,  1962
We are indebted to John Davidson,
FLS, FBSE, FRHS, emeritus professor of
botany, for this extract, who notes: "Very
few of the present generation realize the
above fact. It will be news to most of the
faculty, and thousands of the alumni."
It was news to the Chronicle and we
find, after a little checking, that the credit
is all Professor Davidson's for its establishment.
Professor Davidson came from Aberdeen in 1911 to be provincial botanist,
and established a botanical garden on
two acres at Essondale in 1912. When
the Point Grey site for the University
was  chosen,  ground   was  prepared  and
in 1915 the plants were transferred from
the Essondale plot to U.B.C.
On the site below the West Mall some
of the systematic beds are still in use.
The systematic arboretum of native trees,
also established by Professor Davidson in
the same area, lies between the West Mall
and the new men's residences.
In 1950 a new plan for the University's
botanical gardens was adopted which incorporated the whole campus as the
showplace. Development from now on
will be to the south of the present
campus, where some fifty to one hundred
acres, now forest, will be part of the
gardens. Work has already started on a
new conservatory situated to the west of
the old horse barn which will be the
nucleus of a large conservatory development. These conservatories will eventually form a link with the gardens to
the south.
8 U.B.C's
Lively Years

by Eric Nicol
Pictured in the right-hand column is Norman Archibald MacRae MacKenzie, who arrived at U.B.C. as
the new president in 1944, and Miss Virginia Black,
who in that same year arrived at Grace hospital in
Vancouver.
In 1962 Miss Black is in first-year education at
the University, and Dr. MacKenzie is entering the state
of Grace known as retirement. Being present when the
photo was taken, I can attest that both these people look
and act far too young for their parts. (An old Players'
Club failing, as I recall.)
Watching the President charm the young lady
I was stricken with the despair of trying to assess, in an
article such as this, the tenure of a man of so many
parts, all of them muscular. Scholar, soldier, athlete,
administrator and regular guy—each of these is an
equally brilliant facet of what some of us at one time
judged to be a pretty rough diamond.
I remember looking out of the window of my
office in the Auditorium building, in that autumn of '45
when I came out of the Air Force to teach English, and
seeing a strange figure strolling up the quad clad in what
looked like an old Indian sweater and accompanied by
a one-eyed collie.
My first assumption was that this was a University golf course ranger whose search for lost balls had
led him out of bounds. When I learned the identity of
the ruddy-faced individual with the cow-lick of hair and
the rolling gait, my feeling was that the C.O.T.C. had
won the war but lost the peace.
Only with the passing of the years has it become
apparent that the MacKenzie habit of meandering about
the campus at off hours was about as aimless as a
hound's tooth. The cheerful face casually intruded into
every department of the University, including the steamy
and normally hostile kraal of the Caf kitchen. Students
meeting in their extracurricular clubs found their rather
dismal hut suddenly changed into prestige premises
when the President lounged in during the evening to see
how things were going.
Equally disarming with his colleagues, the President is known to them as "Larry". It is a purely collegiate name, acquired at Dalhousie when the young MacKenzie showed up, freshly returned from farm work on
the prairies, with $50 in his pocket and an appetite for
learning. The initiation rites for new students offered a
choice of being tossed in a blanket or singing a song.
After watching a couple of other freshmen come out of
orbit outside the recovery area, Norman Archibald chose
to sing. He sang a Harry Lauder ditty called "The Wedding of Lauchie McGraw," a rendition so stunningly
bad that he at once was dubbed "Lauchie," which soon
became anglicized as "Larry". Dr. MacKenzie's family
do not call him "Larry". It is a name born of and still
betokening a talent for fellowship on the campus.
"A home-spun man, with no vestige of 'side'
about him, a human sort with a fine understanding of
people, of industry, of agriculture and all the varied
aspects of our Canadian life, he will take our university
to the people and, we do not hesitate to predict, will
make its value known as it has never been in British
Columbia before." That is from a Sun editorial that
appeared February 12, 1944, proving that there are
days when the clouded crystal bowl clears till you can
see way up Howe Sound.
"He will take our university to the people." Bang
on. But nobody could have foreseen to what extent the
new president would have to take the people to the University. He had barely reached Vancouver from the relatively sedate and stable University of New Brunswick
before the student population exploded—veterans, immigrants, Hungarian refugees, the lot.
Surf-riding the huge wave of undergrads was one
of the few sports which the President had no practice in.
Faced with such an inundation a man of meaner spirit
would have cried, "Close the doors! They're coming in
the windows!" Fortunately for the students, Dr. MacKenzie's philosophy has been from the beginning: "to
provide the best education possible for the maximum
number of students likely to benefit from it." The MacKenzies lived in Acadia Camp from
1946 to 1951. Their three children are UBC
graduates. Bridgie, being read to by her father,
now has a master's degree from Yale and is
studying law at London University. Patrick has
a Cambridge master's degree and is teaching
philosophy at University of Saskatchewan.
Not shown is Susan, now Mrs. Trevor Root,
who graduated in microbiology.
The diversity of the buildings that have materialized during the past 18 years—from Pharmacy to Fine
Arts—testifies to the implementation of this programme, "the expansion to provide a variety of offerings," as the President says, "consistent with the fact
that human beings are not identical and you must do
your damnedest to provide for their particular aptitudes."
The vigor with which Dr. MacKenzie pursued
this purpose has made U.B.C. the fastest-growing university in Canada, despite less-than-average financial
support by government. It is an open secret that to
secure top staff he cheerfully hijacked professors bound
for other institutions. "Don't get off the train. Come and
see us first" was the wire that brought George F. Curtis
to U.B.C. as dean of law. (One of the photos in the president's album shows him fiercely booting the ball out
of the clutch of a rival footballer.)
The only satisfaction greater than his pride in
his staff, as he prepares to depart from Room 107 in the
Admin. Building, is Dr. MacKenzie's delight in "the enthusiasm and vitality of the students." He has been
aware that in the teenage adjustment to university life,
to independence, the student is like a dog who is trying
to lie down: he keeps following his tail 'round till he finally finds the place to subside. The President has interfered as little as possible with that delicate, sometimes
noisy, process of maturing. Whenever undergrads have
committed another outrage against downtown sensibilities, he has struck a committee to study the matter
so thoroughly that it somehow evaporates.
From Pugwash to Point Grey—the President's
career to date has been a sensational vindication of
Horace Greeley's advice to the young man. Will he now
start east again? If not, it will be for reason other than
diminished vitality. Also, since his arrival at U.B.C,
Dr. MacKenzie has been chosen as one of Canada's 10
best-dressed men, a qualification that would appear to
open up new vistas in the world "outside".
Or, could be that this rugged Scot will find more
time for his golf. His tally will be easier to add up than
that of his years as president of U.B.C. And we may
fairly doubt that he will ever score better than he has on
this last 18.

for Dr. MacKenzie the title of

Memories of University Suburbia
by Mary Wada
Tar paper huts row upon row,
No grass, only hard packed sandy
ground,
Grey hard walks, clean but harsh
on little shoes,
Wagons, tricycles and wheelbarrows
scattered hither and thither
As if by a giant wind rather than the
changing fancy of tiny owners
safe from the threat of theft.
—by Barbara Taylor,  1950
Often as I walk on the campus near where we used
to live, I see the fluttering, gay wash in the clear sunlight and my mind goes back to the three happy years we
spent there. Acadia camp, that huddle of huts hastily
conjured up as temporary quarters for faculty and students of this university, was a unique sort of suburban
living. It seems to me now a colorful kaleidoscope of
children, gardens, constant tea and coffee breaks and
interminable chats.
It was in the summer of '56 that we arrived in Vancouver, were married on a glorious summer day, and
moved into one of the huts. I found, much to my wry
amusement, that all my high-heeled shoes were of less
use to me now and my only pair of sensible flat-heeled
shoes quickly wore out.
By fall the rains came. With my husband away all day
at the University, I began to take notice of our neighbors. About a dozen or more families lived around this
Circle street. These old wartime huts converted into
married people's quarters were practical and reasonable,
—but also tiny and uninsulated. However, the woods
behind our huts took me back to my childhood days and
I was once again enjoying nature after years of city life.
A family of raccoons that lived in the woods paid nightly
calls in winter-time. No garbage can that could be
toppled escaped them. They became almost tame.
Half the families around us were members of the faculty; the rest were graduate and undergraduate students and their families. The oldest child round the
Circle then was almost three years old but most of the
children, and there were many, were under two. There
were newcomers from different parts of Canada and the
States and some from overseas. They added variety to
our group.
The wives, because most of us stayed at home, became very quickly acquainted. We had a favorite meeting place—the wash hut, where mothers with children
were found almost daily. Most of the girls I talked to
1 1 A colorful kaleidoscope of children, gardens,

interminable chats.
invited me to drop in for a chat. I was still a little shy.
But through occasional conversations over hot cups of
coffee, while the children stumbled over toys in the small
living room and the downpour of rain continued outside,
I was being absorbed into this informal and cordial kind
of living.
When Christmas came there were lively parties where
every family from around the Circle was invited. In a
small living room crammed with over twenty-five people
one could not do much else than talk and sing between
refreshments. It was almost comical to see some of the
husbands introducing themselves to each other. There
was quite a cross section, lawyers, doctors, physicists,
geologists, biologists. The wives knew each other fairly
well by now except for some of the working wives
whom we were meeting for the first time. One could
hardly blame the husbands for not knowing each other.
Most of them were newcomers and kept busy as faculty
members; the student-husbands were even busier, carrying a heavy load of university studies and their responsibilities as family men. I often admired the young wives,
virtually left to their own resources days and many evenings while their husbands went off to university. Perhaps
the thought of having many others around them in the
same situation sustained them.
I think being mutually helpful was one of the most
pleasing aspects of this community. I remember with
pleasure how easily and naturally everyone dispensed
their neighborliness.
Babies seemed to come in batches, and showers for
them happily surprised mothers from overseas. Then I
remember the children's birthday parties—the huge
birthday cakes, with as many children as the adults
could bear. Most of the time we had a smile fixed on our
faces, because our voices could not be heard above the
din.
Because living was so simple and the outdoors so near
I remember the seasons vividly. Our first spring on the
west coast completely captivated us; the campus was an
enchanted fairyland for me.
With our second fall the rains came again. Now it was
our turn to welcome the newcomers, some of them the
Hungarian students who had fled their homeland.
In our last year at the Circle the group was very diversified—we had couples from France, the States, from
the British Isles, Australia, Hungary, the West Indies,
Germany plus a liberal sprinkling of Canadians. There
were many exciting discussions. Most of the girls were
well-educated and well-travelled and their stories were
engrossing.
Our French friends stayed only a year but left an indelible impression on us and started me musing on the
term "gracious living." Even in the unostentatious setting of their hut they managed to live graciously—conversations with them could very well last into the night,
they were well-read and had travelled much, and their
vitality and enjoyment of life made each day a vibrant
experience.
There was an attractive newcomer from Germany, via
the States, whose American husband was in the drama
field. She was very artistic and transformed their hut
with her clever handiwork. It was ludicrous that this talented couple whose day often began after the noon hour
because of late rehearsals, and went well into the late
hours of the night, were lodged with only a thin wall dividing them next to our British friends whose little son
woke up punctually at 6 a.m. or earlier.
To some the temporary stay at these huts was just a
stopover, to be endured and not enjoyed. But I believe
most of the former residents, however comfortable their
houses now, miss the quick rapport we all found at the
camp. Where else would we have come across such an
intriguing cross-section of humanity? I learned much
through the many lively discussions. In a small way, too,
I realized that given a chance, people from countries
dissimilar to each other can live in harmony.
With buildings mushrooming all over the campus it
may not be long before these huts are replaced. I hope
the woods will never completely disappear; the silent,
dark woods offer so much solace to this civilization-harassed world. I hope, too, that there will always remain
that elusive, warm fellowship even when glossier buildings go up around the Circle.
Those sun-drenched days, the rains, the quiet woods
and the charmed circle of friends will always remain
vivid in my memories.
12 What Women can do if they have the
Wit
Talent
and Vitality
by Mamie Moloney
(Mrs. T. R. Boggs)
It took a male colleague (wouldn't you know), on
the editorial board of the Chronicle to come up with a
catchy suggestion for the rather laborious theme of this
article, The Place of the University Woman in our
Society.
"Why don't you," he suggested, "write on After Diapers — What?"
Which certainly sums it up succinctly. For while that
is the question faced by all women at that stage in their
lives when their children have grown up, it is particularly true in the case of the university-educated
woman.
The woman with a college degree, someone has said,
is all dressed up with no place to go. But is this necessarily so? Here we get down to the basic aim of education for women.
There seems to be general agreement that there are
two major objectives: First, the personal development
of woman, her right to achieve a full range of growth
as an individual; second, the need for intelligent, competent, well-trained women in the arts, sciences and
professions to make their maximum contribution to
society.
The goal of woman's personal development through
education has been ideally summed up by Harold Taylor
in his book On Education and Freedom:
"She makes up her own mind about ideas, politics,
books, people, children, the school board and husbands
. . . She has been educated, not in subjects, not in standard texts, not in marriage, but in developing a sensitive
and flexible character, and a feeling of facing reality,
whether it is the reality of home and her children, or the
reality of a profession . . . She does what she has to do
with grace, and what she wants to do with pleasure."
This, as we have said, is the ideal.
But what of the wife and mother who suffers from a
gnawing feeling that her life should have some purpose
extending beyond her home, husband and children. She
has an urge to be creative, but experiences little sense of
achievement in her daily life. She feels a need to be too
many people and to do too many things. She seeks outlets: clubs, luncheons, puttering and pottery, raising
money for worthy causes, anything to justify the time
and money that went for her education. She has feelings
of guilt and conflict concerning her proper role. Her
part-time forays into community activities provide only
temporary relief.
This is not true of all university educated women of
course. The way in which the educated woman adjusts
to her particular role in life is partly a matter of personality, and — this is often an overlooked factor — of
vitality.
One of the best adjusted housewife-mothers I know
holds a master's degree in social work and is quite content to confine her knowledge of human relations to
achieving a harmonious household. And she does an
admirable job of balancing the domestic see-saw, a contraption that can get violently out of kilter when the
family woman doesn't do her job well. She returned to a
job as a case-worker while her children were still in
school but gave it up after a year, not only because she
found the combined role too much for her store of energy, but also because she found more personal satisfaction in being "just a housewife" and mother and doing as
much outside community work as time and strength
allowed.
Who is to say this king-pin of a happy household, and
others like her, are not fulfilling their role as university

women even though they are not working outside the
home? Isn't the family, as the basic unit of our society,
the prime consideration of the educated woman?
On the other hand there are many university women
of talent and vitality whose appetite for accomplishment
is not satisfied by the role of housewife and community
worker. Their sense of personal loss is also society's
waste when they happen to be exceptionally gifted.
Should they be hidebound by the "woman's place is in
the home" tradition? Surely not, if they have the talent,
energy and flexibility to perform a dual role, as so many
of them have.
The University of British Columbia has produced
many such women. Let's start out with our recently-
elected Chancellor, Dr. Phyllis Ross. To the best of our
knowledge she is the first woman in the British Commonwealth to hold office as a university chancellor who
is also chairman of the board of governors, in other
words, not just an honorary job. Her brilliant student
record as Phyllis Gregory at U.B.C. and later at Bryn
Mawr and the London School of Economics was followed by marriage, motherhood and widowhood in the
short space of a few years. While her children were still
in school she held important posts in Ottawa from 1934
to 1945 when she married Frank Mackenzie Ross. This
was followed by a tour of duty as the highly successful
chatelaine of Government House in Victoria while her
husband served as Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia.
Mrs. Henry Angus (Annie Anderson), after winning
a B.A. with first class honours in English language and
literature, taught school (she's still remembered fondly
in Ladysmith after 40 years as "the prettiest student
teacher we ever had") before her marriage to Professor
Angus. Then after raising her family she ran for the
Vancouver School Board, was elected and served as its
capable chairman. In addition she has held many community service posts in children's aid and social welfare,
was regional adviser for several years for the Canadian
Welfare Council, and is currently a board member of
the Canadian Mental Health Association. Having published verse and won the first Players' Club prize for the
best one-act play while still an undergraduate, she has
also written a history of the Vancouver Children's Aid
Society. She now serves on the U.B.C. Senate and recently ran for office as chancellor in the first contested
election for that position at U.B.C. since 1916.
Mrs. John H. Creighton (Sally Murphy, BA'23),
combined marriage and motherhood with several careers including instructor in the English department, writing for radio, book reviewing, TV panelling and as a
volunteer at Essondale mental hospital and the Canadian Mental Health Association's White Cross Centre.
With a husband and two small sons, Dr. Ursula H.
Abbott, who took her M.S.A. in 1950 at U.B.C, worked
in Paris and Edinburgh in 1960 on a Guggenheim fellowship on research in genetics and is now assistant professor in poultry husbandry at the University of California in Berkeley.
Pat Carney, who received her B.A. in 1960 as Mrs.
Gordon B. Dickson, entered the newspaper field upon
graduation and is already achieving acclaim as a business columnist for the Province newspaper.
14 Part of a husband-wife medical team with headquarters at Ganges on Salt Spring Island, Dr. Marjorie
Jansch (nee Dupont, MD'54) combines marriage,
motherhood and a career.
With four young sons, Mrs. Robert R. Reid (Felicity
Pope, BA'51) is currently taking pre-med at U.B.C.
But it takes vitality. Mrs. Pierre Berton (Janet
Walker, BA'41), wife of the well-known author, columnist, radio and TV personality, was a newspaper reporter before her marriage, and, despite having six children, manages to do research for her husband, act as his
home secretary and filer, and be ready at the drop of a
hat to take off with him for Tokyo, Berlin or wherever.
An unusual job, in which her social work training
comes in handy, is held by Mrs. David Latham (Dorothy Lindop Brown, BA'39) who runs the Commonwealth Marriage Bureau in Vancouver under the name
of Mrs. Lin Brown. Her background includes working
among B.C. fishermen on a co-operative education programme sponsored by the U.B.C. extension department,
working in adult education in Saskatchewan, and with a
UNESCO conference in Denmark. She followed this
with a year in Paris, trips to Spain and Africa and a year
in London where she met her school teacher husband.
She is the mother of three children.
Some mothers go back to school with their children.
Mrs. Edward L. Pierrot (Cicely Hunt, BA'31) is now
at U.B.C. again with her children, taking a bachelor's
degree in social work.
The distinction of being the first "granny graduate",
—her grand-daughter graduated last year—goes to Mrs.
Margaret Brown who received her B.A. degree in 1923
at the age of 41. She was then a widow with five children ranging in age from 7 to 13, and teaching school
for a living. Twice she had saved money for her own
education but had had to spend it on some other necessity. She finally managed to get her "dearest wish", a
university education.
It was also a "hankering for knowledge" that sent Mr.
and Mrs. Michael Kournossoff off to U.B.C. together.
She was Gwen Musgrave, BA'28 and went back to college to take an M.A. in history while her husband took
his degree.
Mrs. Darrell D. Jones, BA'59 (Marion Novak) had
originally planned to graduate in 1954 and finally made
it—three children later. Now she works half a day as a
case-worker for the Catholic Aid Society. Her three children are in school enabling her to work mornings and
look after her children as well. She feels this is her
"ideal set-up".
There's still an untouched file "that deep" on the various pursuits of married U.B.C. women graduates, all
the way from cattle ranching to politics. Suffice it to say
that talent and drive will out, despite biological and
other complications.
There seems to be no valid reason why the family
woman should not also make her contribution to society
in business or the professions if she has the wit, strength
and organizing ability to "double in brass." And, as the
touchstone of the family, who is to say that her role as
wife and mother is not enriched by her participation in
and her contribution to the world outside her home.

15 Our task is not only to produce more,
hut to train more and better brains.
We must prevent inferior education.
It is a question of survival
for us in our world.
Walter Koerner
on
Higher Education
Condensed from a speech given at the
Vancouver Island Regional Conference
on Higher Education in Nanaimo last
winter. Mr. Koerner was asked to express
his views as a businessman on higher
education and on ways to meet its
financial needs
the material and tangible advantages of the expanding areas of knowledge—technological, scientific, humanistic and sociological—are fully appreciated and
eagerly adopted by enlightened modern business. We
learn daily that study, research and new knowledge pay
dividends.
But I want to stress another way in which education
is very important to the life, happiness and balanced
judgment of man in the rush and worry of the modern
age. Education gives insight into man's endeavour,
man's aspirations and background. It is something which
enriches his life and that is always there to call on. Obviously the practical subjects, the sciences, the technology, will continue to change, but our deeper spiritual
and ethical values have survived throughout the technical revolutions and are now more needed than ever before.
Education in the broadest humanitarian sense, not
just narrow technological specialization, is the medicine
and food the man of imagination hungers for.
Now to business and commerce, of which the life-
blood is imaginative well-trained youth. Canada, vast in
size and natural resources but relatively small in population, cannot afford to waste a single good brain capable
of development. Brains are in themselves creative and
imaginative, but without the discipline and training of
education even the most valuable and original mind can
be wasted as a national asset.
Today education is a matter of national survival. All
nations on earth are faced with the same problem—
competition. With this is linked the question of productivity, and this is not by any means a mere economic
abstraction. It is the very simple and practical question
of keeping the output of a country growing at a rate
that will at least keep up with the new demands raised
by competition. In our world when so many nations are
competing for trade—more than that, for excellence in
16 every way—any nation that cannot guide its affairs and
improve its position will find itself losing strength, prestige, influence—and of course customers. This calls for
hard work, but mainly it calls for an intelligent approach
to the whole problem. No matter how hard people work
they cannot hope to maintain competitive productivity
unless they have the tools, the training and the organization.
Education our most valuable investment
In education, what is the real, constant and ever recurrent trouble? The headache is "money." It is simply
absurd that we have not yet realized that the most valuable investment we make during our lifetime, far more
valuable than our houses, our cars and our roads, is the
investment in education and refinement of minds. This
is true not only for the individual but for the nation.
This is the basis, and the road to further achievement in
modern civilization. All of us—educationists, businessmen, labour, every citizen—should stand up without delay and should give and demand more money for more
and better education.
There is no excuse today for governments on any
level to stick to any archaic views or the B.N.A. Act for
restricting the responsibility for financing education
mainly to the provincial and local level. Eventually we
will have to advance our federal and provincial thinking
into the twentieth century. The federal government today is the logical source and it should be the main source
of funds for financing higher education and research.
No section of our society is doing, in any way, nearly
enough. Perhaps if you realize that today our great business corporations give only a little more than one-tenth
of the amount allowed under the present pre-tax profit
arrangements for welfare, education, cultural and religious causes, you will be as disappointed as I am.
Now, about labour's responsibility! Education is vital
to democracy and democratic labour leadership believes
in democracy. Why shouldn't labour contribute substantially to education, from which labour expects the greatest benefits? Labour colleges are not the answer because
their very existence is a contradiction of labour's aspiration to minimize class distinctions, and true liberal education is the greatest class leveller of all.
How to meet financial needs
On the financial aspects and new avenues to meet our
needs: First, greater funds should come from established
sources for capital and operating expenses.
Second, it is sound policy, even if necessary, to borrow heavily now to build the plant in time.
Third, labour's contribution to education and research should be organized.
Fourth, the Department of Revenue should offer more
inducement and make more liberal provision in income
tax regulations for donations to education. If the Department refuses to consider such a policy, then another
possible answer is direct taxation by governments like
the sales tax, the funds so raised to be used exclusively
for advanced education and research. The crisis is great
and something must be done. I would deplore further
specific taxation, but if governments and private sources
are not giving realistically, it will be forced on us.
Fifth, better and wiser use of funds must be made.
Some practical suggestions
Now, a word or two in this connection about some
practical steps or changes in universities.
An essential element in improvement of education is
more research in all branches of learning. Our University has taken great strides forward in recent years, but
this is a beginning only. Why do we assume that research, the greatest academic challenge to a student, can
only be done when he is perhaps over 30 years of age?
Why not offer the challenge to younger minds to achieve
more original thinking rather than subject them to so
many routine courses? Research is one of the most serious needs. There is as yet not even a fraction of the
money needed for it! In all branches of research Canada
lags far behind the United States, not to mention the
Soviet Union, in financial appropriation for research.
Admission standards should be changed and raised,
and we should insist on stricter disciplines in education
so that our University is able in every respect to measure
up to institutions of the highest standard in the world.
Further, might a three-year college education be envisaged for certain types of students? Columbia University's president, Grayson Kirk, believes that the present
education can be condensed into three years. And it is
worth considering the trimester plan which keeps the
university plant in operation the year round and enables
the students to obtain a bachelor's degree in three years.
This would make up to 30 per cent more use of instructional facilities.
Student fees
May I also say something about student fees. As fee
increases may be unavoidable, I would think it fit to give
yet greater concessions to all who prove to be really first-
class students, and require other students to gamble on
their future. Why could they not take fuller advantage
of loans which can be made available; are we not already buying goods on a credit time plan?
I have said what I think and believe should be done
to meet the financial needs of higher education. I hope
it may be useful to the conference.
I want now in these days of cold war to re-affirm my
belief in the value of the spiritual, ethical and non-utilitarian aspects of education. As the newly elected Acting
Secretary-General of the United Nations, U Thant, says:
"Conflicts between nations or individuals generally
arise not out of viewpoints in their civilizations but from
uncivilized elements in their character and ignorance.
Therefore we need more balance and stability, not emotional excitement—which only education can give to us
and to our children".
17 The Campus
Color
Scheme
by David Brock
Most visitors to the campus don't realize that the colors of the newest buildings are part of a general scheme.
They simply deplore the Buchanan Blues or the Medical
Muds as such, and see no relationship between them.
But the larger plan is there. At the heart of the campus
stand a very few granite buildings. Any new buildings in
that same central area will duplicate, in grey brick, the
color of the granite, thus ensuring some sort of harmony, even though granite itself is out of our price
range and Academic Gothic is out of fashion. Around
the grey hub will turn a color-wheel of buildings, in the
three familiar groups of cool colors, warm colors and
earth colors. In this way the buildings will share relationships, even though nobody can see all of them at
once except from the air.
The mauve of the earlier Buchanan block was chosen
before the master plan existed. It was an attempt to relate the building to the mountains and sea and sky lying
north of it. The blue of the Buchanan addition was
a change from the mauve, with its same purpose.
These colors are now part of the wheel. Some people
find these blues too strong, though the general criticism
of the main plan is that the muted colors are too cold,
flat, dull, weak, and so on. Many laymen pine for something hot and Mexican, full of tabasco.
The colors are on the porcelain panels only. Each
building shows a wide expanse of concrete framework
and glass. To tie the scheme together, the darker buildings have light grey concrete and the lighter buildings
have dark grey concrete. In the process of baking the
colored porcelain there is a chance of variation from
the original plan. Whether there has in fact been any
error so far is a debated point.
There are some exceptions to the scheme. For example, the Fine Arts building differs in style from the
18 "It is astonishing to hear
psychiatrists being so
emotional and tense"
^€4
other academic buildings. It is meant to be a classic little
temple, and it is colored white and ivory. The residences
are deliberately non-academic, so as to provide a home,
and these are a warm brick of a color especially devised
for the job, to harmonize not only with their purpose but
with the trees.
Since color is an intensely personal affair, the selection of the wheel's spokes was left to the personal taste
of a single architect. But he and his associates could not
proceed without the approval of the University's
aesthetics committee, so that even on the friendliest
basis it was possible for the committee to send his first
color-card back as too muted and his second one as too
bright, thus muting, perhaps, the personal element along
with the colors. Still, the existing colors do in a way
continue to represent him. The fact that many people
dislike his colors is an equally personal matter, and the
very positive anger may indicate that he has at least
done something positive. The earth colors have made
the medical staff see a vivid red. It is astonishing to hear
psychiatrists being so emotional and tense.
In judging the colors of single buildings or groups,
we must remember that the eventual growth of trees
and shrubs will change the look of things considerably.
We must also remember that several buildings which
share in the scheme quite vitally have no existence yet
except on paper. There are great gaps in the color wheel.
And again, when some existing buildings, now too conspicuous, are later jostled and even dwarfed by new
neighbours, you will see them settle down. Finally, the
disappearance of the huts and semi-permanent buildings
will alter things too. In another twenty years, you and
the campus may be kinder to each other.
Hostile criticism of the buildings goes far beyond
color of course. I have been told to remember (and
from now on I shall) that while in other ages an architect's client was apt to be a rich and cultured individual,
such as one of the Medici family, his client today will
probably be a committee, just as his firm itself may
degenerate into a committee. His client may lack any
real grasp of art and will almost certainly lack funds
with which to buy anything glorious. Among the things
which a committee is unlikely to understand is the
nature of institutional architecture. It will show signs of
wanting domestic architecture, only bigger. But as for
ignorance of the experiments now going on in search
of a whole new architectural alphabet, this is hardly a
committee's fault, when the experts themselves are in
all kinds of doubt and conflict.
It is unlikely that any great new style will come overnight, at Point Grey or elsewhere. Perhaps we are a
little impatient. It is true that without any great style
in individual buildings, it should be possible to achieve
a dignified harmony in the total effect, and we and our
committees may have fallen short of that. But if what
we have on the campus is unnecessarily discordant,
then this disposes of the common charge that what we
have is tedious repetition. Such "monotony" as does
exist might better be described as an effort, against tremendous odds, towards some sort of harmony, even if
not of the highest order. As for lack of harmony between humans who design and approve and alter the
buildings, not to mention those who use the buildings
or just walk by them, this controversy is better than a
unanimous worship of passing fashions or a level indifference. Eventually we may obtain better architecture
after much furious conflict, locally and throughout the
world. So let us hope the doctors and the architects will
knock each other's blocks off.

19 VICTORIA
COLLEGE
is on the move
by F. P. Levirs
The afternoon of Saturday, January 20, 1962
—bright sunlight and crisp cold weather—the scarlet
and azure of academic dress contrasting with the drab
yellow of winter-killed grass in the bare field. A moment
of introduction by Hugh Farquhar, Assistant to the
Principal, then a deft twist of the spade in the hands of
Judge Clearihue, Chairman of the College Council. A
sod was turned. The ceremonial transfer of Victoria College to its new campus at Gordon Head had begun with
the breaking of ground for a new classroom block.
Not as dramatic as the Great Trek, perhaps,
nevertheless this simple ceremony marked the beginning
of a new stage in a long journey. It was in 1902 that
Victoria College was born as an affiliate of McGill University. Judge Clearihue himself was one of the first
class of seven freshmen. Housed in the old Victoria high
school this fledgling College retained its affiliation until
1915 when it merged its identity with the recently established provincial University of British Columbia. Five
years later it was reborn as an affiliate of the University,
offering two years of Arts, first in the new Victoria high
school and later in quarters prepared for it in Craig-
darroch Castle, destined to be its home until 1946.
This picturesque castle had become a crowded
dwelling place when the Provincial Government offered
the College new quarters on the present Lansdowne
Campus to be shared until 1956 with the Provincial
Normal School. When the latter's function was taken
over in that year by the College of Education, one larger
institution emerged requiring more accommodation.
New buildings were built and more land acquired, but
by 1960 it became evident that the 57 acres available
at Lansdowne would not be adequate for future development.
In May, 1959, the College acquired the land at
Gordon Head previously occupied by an army camp.
This was to be its new home. Before a year was over,
it had transformed the former drill hall into a gymnasium, the officer's mess into a faculty club, and several
huts into laboratories and offices. A new playing field
was also in use. But still no decision had been made
to develop Gordon Head as anything but an auxiliary
campus.
It was after consultation with Dean Wruster of
the University of California that the College Council
decided in 1961 to site all new building at Gordon Head.
An over-all plan for future development of the new
campus was prepared and immediate steps were taken
to purchase an additional 165 acres bordering the 120
acres already owned. The master plan provides for a
potential enrolment of 10,000 students.
The financial support for the new buildings was
secured through a whirlwind campaign that in 1960
raised two million dollars from citizens of Victoria and
other private sources. A university Development Board
was appointed at the conclusion of the campaign and
given the responsibility of raising the additional half
million needed to match the proffered grant of $500,000
per year for five years by the provincial government. It
is from this fund of five million dollars that the four
buildings proposed for immediate construction will be
financed. These buildings will consist of a classroom
block, the Student Union Building, the Science Build-
20 ing and a Library. The first phase of the building programme scheduled for completion by 1964 has now
begun.
This then was the occasion for a thousand Victorians to brave the unaccustomed cold on a January
day, the turning of the sod for the first new building
on the new campus. As soon as the ceremony on the
site was over, back across Finnerty Road (to be closed
when plans are fully developed) and through the gate
of the old army camp, went the participants and spectators to the auditorium. From the stage, His Worship
Mayor R. B. Wilson, who is also Chairman of the University Development Board, expressed confidence "that
upon this site a university will be built that will be significant in the development of this nation."
His Honour Judge J. B. Clearihue, Chairman of
Victoria College Council, called upon the citizens of
Victoria to continue and increase their financial support
of the College.
"I would remind the citizens of Greater Victoria," said the Judge, "that every sod dug out of the
earth, unless watered and cared for, will wither and die.
And so it is that when I dig out our symbolic sod, it too
will wither and die unless it is watered and cared for
over a period of many years by the citizens of Greater
Victoria with monetary liquid of a golden hue."
Dr. Harry Hickman, Principal of the College,
thanked the people of Victoria for their interest and enthusiastic help. "The sod that was turned was from the
boundary between Oak Bay and Saanich but now that
it has been blessed by the Mayor of Victoria I think of it
as an amalgamated sod that will be a symbol of the
amalgamated support that has and will be given us."
The Honourable Leslie Peterson, Minister of
Education, congratulated the College on its maintenance
of academic standards during a period of rapid growth
and assured it of the Government's continued interest in
its development.
"We find evidence of this in the ever-increasing
number of scholarships and other academic awards won
by students of this College. We find it as well in the
qualifications of the teaching staffs. In recent years, the
Prof. Farquhar, Dr. Hickman, Mayor Wilson, Judge Clearihue
College has added some distinguished scholars to its
faculty and there continues to be the excellent teaching
for which the College has always been noted."
The student band played while the hundreds of
visitors were served refreshments and visited the many
excellent displays.
Dave Feme and other members of his Alumni
executive answered inquiries, distributed copies of the
"Newsletter" and chatted with interested alumni.
To those of us who knew the University of British Columbia when the "shacks" at Fairview were its
home, who remember the visits to Point Grey to watch
the progress of the "permanent" and "temporary" buildings, there was a flavor on that Saturday afternoon
reminiscent of those days. There was the same awakening of the imagination, the same vision of the future,
the same hope evident among the undergraduates, the
faculty, the alumni and the citizens. Once again, a group
of university buildings will rise beside the sea to express,
as that first cluster of Point Grey buildings did, the faith
of the province in the future of its people.

Those
were
the
days!
"This summer on July 4th the Class of '22 celebrates
its fortieth anniversary. At that time distant sons
and daughters will return to Vancouver and the University,
take a look at the mountains, Stanley Park and the
Straits of Georgia, and know that they have come home.
Then down by the delphiniums in the Eagles' dell in
Burnaby, classmates and faculty will meet again to
toast Alma Mater and old friends."

P. 1MUU8, nnrear.
Autumn 1918! Probably no class ever entered U.B.C.
under more adverse circumstances. In late September as
freshmen and freshettes converged on the Fairview campus the first World War was dragging its weary years to
a close, the Daily Province was still printing long casualty lists, and communism in Russia was an alarming
new fact. In October Dr. Wesbrook, the distinguished
first president of the University, passed away. In November the 'flu epidemic caused all lectures to be cancelled, the Arts building was taken over as a temporary
hospital, and Christmas exams had to be postponed to
February. Was there ever such another term?
But 1919 was a wonderful year! In the fall we welcomed the boys back from overseas. The class of '22 inherited many of these veterans who resumed their
studies as sophomores. Their great contribution was to
infuse the whole campus with vigor, enthusiasm and
maturity of thought. Much that we now regard as best
at U.B.C. we owe to these men.
At the same time new faces began to appear on Faculty Row. These newcomers too were anxious to resume
academic careers interrupted by war. Because they were
our seniors by only a few years they simulated a serious
professorial attitude, which contrasted sharply with that
of "Doc" Sedgewick who perennially combined the wit
of Punch with the effrontery of Toad.
Garnett Sedgewick and the class of '22 had arrived
on the campus at the same time. In his address of welcome to us he had advised us to be "intellectually active". We responded with a great ovation and elected
him our honorary president, which he remained until
graduation and beyond that to our twenty-fifth reunion.
There he and his mother, dignified but affectionate
grandmother of the class, were with us for the last time.
What undergraduate attending the University now
could say that he knew nearly everyone in his year and
most of the members of faculty? We did. In fact,
the old Fairview campus was a "matey" place. With the
return of the veterans and sudden increase in enrolment
it began to bear a strong resemblance to a Hong Kong
resettlement area. But when fights to pass through
bottlenecks in halls or on stairways became too frustrat-
22 ing we took an occasional afternoon off for a long walk
up to Little Mountain; early in the year pussy willows
sprouted their furry catkins in every empty lot along the
way and the view from the top was just as wide then
as it is now in Queen Elizabeth Park.
This is how stack privileges started
Congestion in the main reading room won for the seniors the much-cherished privilege of studying in the
stacks, now traditional. In addition to providing a quiet
atmosphere and proximity to reference material, it included certain fringe benefits; opportunities for exchanging gossip, for unavoidable eavesdropping, and for
viewing the parade up and down Willow Street. Who
was going with whom, and where were they going?
Probably to the Palm Garden or Cusick's for tea. Some
who indulged in this idle strolling found themselves
going steady for life.
After the war athletics flourished and our class added
a noteworthy quota of heroes. We well remember the
exciting rugby games played at Brockton Point against
a backdrop of colored leaves and autumn mists, with
nearly every student present to cheer the players on.
Christmas Day 1920—UBC  12, Stanford 0
In all U.B.C.'s athletic history we think it probable
that the feat of our classmate, Lou Hunter, on Christmas
Day 1920 still stands as the greatest individual achievement. In the rugby game on that day against Stanford,
Lou "dropped" three field goals to give U.B.C. a victory
of 12-0. At that period Stanford was devoting its principal effort to rugby instead of American football. This
particular team, including stars like Morris Kirksey and
Dink Templeton, had played at the Olympic Games.
Hunter's three dropped goals in one game would be a
stand-out in rugger annals anywhere, any time. That
victory in December 1920, essentially the effort of a
great rugby team, marked the emergence of the University as a power in athletics.
Early in 1920 the popular Arts '20 relay race was inaugurated as a symbol of hope for the move to Point
Grey. The course extended from the present Point Grey
site to the Fairview campus. Trained on crumpets and
tea, or Cascade beer, the runners plodded or gasped
through their laps, particularly those whose stint lay up
Jericho or Fourth Avenue hills.
We also recall the great hockey series played in 1921,
when U.B.C. emerged as city and provincial champions
for the first time.
Letters Club and Players' Club
After 1918 the number of clubs and societies grew
rapidly. One of the most interesting was the Letters
Club founded in 1919, with "Tuli" Larsen as sponsor
ably supported by Dr. MacDonald and Dr. Walker.
There was diversity in its limited membership of sex,
year and faculty. English majors predominated, but an
occasional maverick from history, chemistry or economics slipped in. Papers and discussions were informative and stimulating, and like the English major, the
chemist or economist was expected to defend his views
on Henry James, Rupert Brooke or Samuel Butler. It
was an excellent discipline. Members look back upon
the meetings with a sense of profit and pleasure. In our
senior year Lionel Stevenson was the club's president.
The Players' Club, whose inception, management,
and excellence we owe largely to its founder, our older
brother "Freddie" Wood ("Spell names correctly; mine
isn't plural"), was formed earlier and better known.
Another classmate, Nora Willis, now Mrs. Roland
Michener, was its president in our last year.
We laid the plans for the Trek before we left
Our senior year was rich in achievement. The class
was well represented on the Students' Council; Paul
Whitley was A.M.S. president, and we contributed seven
others: Marjorie Agnew, Sid Anderson, Orson Banfield,
Howell Harris, Bert Imlah, Johnny MacLeod, and
Christie Urquhart. As our final year progressed it became clear that concentrated effort was urgently needed
to move the University to Point Grey. Early in the spring
of 1922 plans were laid by the Council to muster support during the summer, and Ab Richards, A.M.S. president-elect, was delegated to follow through. Ab discharged his responsibility with immense success.
Among the Great Trekkers of October 1922 were
many of the class of '22 who came back after graduation to take part. Our class felt a certain pride in having
contributed to the physical development of U.B.C, as
well as to its heart and soul. The class that had entered
in adversity was leaving with the consciousness of fulfillment and of work well done.
Youthful recollections of a veteran
who was a Council member . . .
Orson Banfield, BASc'22:
. . . Vets found difficulty in getting back to study . . . engineers
attack freshmen with rotten eggs, fruit, and forty-nine pounds
of flour painstakingly packaged in little paper bags . . . shoe
polish . . . stink bombs . . . turning the fire hose on the cadet
corps ("soldiers were no longer necessary") . . . finally settling
down to study . . . the Spanish teacher who was such a good
looker that all the students, men anyway, deserted all other
languages and took Spanish . . . Fred Soward arriving on the
campus and being greeted by a freshman as another freshman;
he turned out to be his professor . . .
And of another veteran who was
President of the Student's Council . . .
Paul Whitley, BA'22:
. . . Those rest periods in the church on 10th Avenue—our
course in Government . . . poker games, students and erring
professors, under the auditorium stage. (The A.M.S. president
was supposed to "stamp them out." He dared not.) ... the bonfire on the C.N.R. flats to climax freshman initiation. Really
something . . . Bill Tansley the janitor, everybody's friend and
a darn good poster-maker . . . Lester McLennan and Cora
Metz very friendly, and a memorable dance party at Cora's
home . . . those Aggie dances and the good chicken sandwiches
. . . the registrar's language when we inquired about "Caution
Money" refunds . . . the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs.
Col. Harry Logan and Dr. Turnbull—most understanding . . .
those wonderful professors—James Henderson, so gentle and
so highly respected. Teddy Boggs always the "mugwump" in
Labour Problems and Social Reform. Dr. Buchanan, so much
revered by all . . . that yell for Faculty vs. Council basketball—
"Boving, Beckett, Boggs and Barss,
We've got Faculty by the 	
Rah. Rah. Rah, —Council" ... or words to that effect!

Welcome! Class of '62
Tomorrow's Alumni
This issue of the U.B.C. Alumni
Chronicle is being sent, free, to every
member of the 1962 graduating class, to
introduce you to the active programme of
the U.B.C. Alumni Association.
There are about 1500 of you on the
Point Grey campus who will be receiving
the magazine and 80 copies are being sent
to David Feme, president of the Victoria
College branch of the Alumni Association, for distribution to members of the
Victoria College graduating class.
All spring graduates will also receive
the subsequent four issues of our magazine. Following a well-established custom,
the graduating class executive each year
gives some money to the Alumni Association to ensure that graduates will receive
the magazine and keep in touch with the
place that they so recently have left.
Every one of you becomes a member
of the Alumni Association when you
graduate. The Alumni Association has
many other projects besides raising money
from alumni. We hope that you will work
to support the aims and objects of the
Association, and become an active member. The Association is vitally concerned
with the state of higher education in
British Columbia today, and is working
to bring the problem into public notice
so that the public may decide on the
issues  and  act accordingly.
The Alumni Association's committees
constantly review University standards
and policies, and the Association acts on
your behalf to make a positive and well-
informed contribution on matters affecting the University and higher education
generally.
Alumni branches throughout B.C.,
Canada, and other parts of the world are
maintained to give graduates an opportunity to meet periodically with other
graduates.
Your first class re-union on the campus
will take place ten years from now, in
1972. We hope that in the meantime you
will already have become an active and
interested alumnus of U.B.C.
Don't MOVE without letting us know
All graduating students are given a
postcard to be returned to the Alumni
office with their new mailing address. It
is very important that you advise Alumni
Records of each subsequent move you
make so that you may continue to receive news about the University, your
friends may find you when they ask us,
and you can vote.
Each graduate becomes a member of
Convocation, and is entitled to vote in
Senate elections and the election of the
Chancellor. If we cannot mail your
ballot, you cannot vote.
So please keep us informed, both where
you are and what you are doing. A
"good" address is good business. Good
luck on your next move!
Here's a list of
your class representatives
For your convenience we list below
the names and telephone numbers of the
graduating class representatives in each

the President who has developed informal
relationships with so many alumni.
Other tributes are also planned. The
details are not yet final, but it is hoped
to establish a new series of scholarships
bearing the President's name with the
terms of the award set by President MacKenzie. In addition, a souvenir book, containing photographs and signatures, will
be prepared.
To carry out the proposed programme,
Ben Trevino has struck a committee
including Frank Turner, Alec Rome and
Col. Harry Logan, with others to be
named shortly.
Please watch your mail and U.B.C.
Reports for further details, but, most of
all, be sure and keep lune 23 rd open as
the day you can pay your personal tribute
to our great and humble President.
"finding  a  friend
in  the  President"
Mrs. Marchak, the former Pat Russell,
who graduated in 1958, wrote to Dr.
MacKenzie from Austria when she heard
of his coming retirement.
The Chronicle, with permission, is recording part of her letter because it expresses opinions heard many times in
campus conversation during the last few
months from men and women who were
students during Dr. MacKenzie's regime.
"... Thanks as a student who fully
enjoyed the liberal and stimulating atmosphere of the University over which
you presided. Thanks as a graduate who,
having now met some of the products of
less liberal environments, realises again
and again what fantastic good fortune she
had in starting at U.B.C. And thanks as
one of the many editors of the Ubyssey
who admired and marvelled at your
policy of letting us make our own mistakes—a policy which contributed more
to our growth as thinking human beings
than any form of censorship could possibly have done. But above all, thanks
for the very personal contact you established with students, the interest you took
in our work and the time you spent with
us. I'm sure my own experience is not
unique; the experience of finding a friend
in the President.
My husband, Bill, and myself (and
our two boys) are expecting to leave
Vienna this summer. The four years of
experience outside the University have
certainly seemed longer than the four
exciting years spent there. But they have
been full years, and in a less exhilarating
way, challenging years ..."

Commerce
Graduate
^fc Seminar
They Packed Them In!
An expected turnout of 75 alumni and
faculty mushroomed to over 200 when
the last registration was recorded for the
first Alumni-Faculty sponsored Seminar
ever held for Commerce graduates. Graduates were there from 1931 up to the
youthful 1961 crop. The class of 1949
made the largest showing with 14 of their
members present.
The programme was presented at a
high academic level and Ken Weaver did
an excellent job as chairman, keeping the
meeting rolling very close to the schedule
all day.
The morning session began at 9:30
a.m. with a paper presented by C. L.
Mitchell of the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration. Mr. Mitchell, a
graduate of the University of Toronto,
and a chartered accountant, discussed return on investment and from the accounting, control, and management points of
view, left the audience with many practical thoughts for their own businesses.
Following a very fast cup of coffee,
the graduates sat down to listen to John
A. Crosse, also a faculty member, and an
enrineering graduate of Cambridge and
Purdue, on "Operation Analysis in the
Western Forest Industry." Mr. Crosse
presented his research to date on this subject and left his hearers with some doubts
about the efficiency of our major industry. He maintained that our industry did
not have enough industrial engineers
studying the most scientific approach to
forest operations.
Luncheon at the Faculty Club was preceded by a half-hour reception, which
allowed the alumni to seek out their old
friends and renew acquaintance with
members of the faculty.
Following the roast lamb luncheon in
the lower banquet room of the Faculty
Club, Dean G. N. Perry welcomed the
graduates back to the University and
thanked them for their interest and response.  The Dean  mentioned the  good
work the Commerce alumni division was
doing and went on to discuss differing
ideas in commerce education. He stated
that some excellent work is done at
U.B.C. in the Commerce degree course
because it attempts to balance the liberal
arts with professional education. The
Dean then spoke briefly on some future
plans for an M.B.A. and doctoral programme at U.B.C. and the reasons why
Canada, as a nation, requires such programmes rather than relying on U.S. and
British institutions.
The afternoon session began with an
interesting panel discussion on the European Common Market. Dean E. D. MacPhee, former Dean of the Faculty of
Commerce and now Dean of Administrative and Financial Affairs, acted as moderator and started the discussions by presenting the backeround of the formation
and development to date of the European
Common Market. He then asked panelist
Dr. William Hughes of the Faculty, and
a graduate of the London school of Economics and Indiana University, to discuss
the Treaty of Rome and what it meant.
Following this, Dr. James F. Robb of the
Faculty, and a graduate of Oreaon State
and Washington University, elaborated
on the growth in the Common Market,
compared with the United Kingdom, as
well as on the problems and benefits of
Britain joining the Common Market.
In the last session of the day, Colin
Gourlay, Assistant Dean of the faculty,
a graduate of U.B.C. and the University
of Toronto, and a faculty member since
1948, led an interesting question period,
a good conclusion to a very informative
programme.
The Seminar sponsored jointly by the
Faculty of Commerce and the Commerce
division of the Alunmi Association was
such a success that it will probably become an annual event. The oreanizing
committee was Ken Mahon, chairman
(who succeeded Gordon Thorn when he
resigned to join the staff of the Association), Doug Bailey. Ross Fitzpatrick and
Dave Stevenson. They were assisted by a
Faculty Committee, Professors J. A.
Crosse, S. M. Oberg and C. L. Mitchell.
Gordon  Thorn appointed to Alumni Office
Gordon A. Thorn, BCom'56, MBA(U.
of Maryland), has been appointed assistant director of the Alumni Association by
the board of management. He succeeds
Tim Hollick-Kenyon, recently appointed
director.
He will be responsible for programmes
covering divisions, annual events, special
projects and alumni fund-raising campaigns.
Before joining the staff on January 1,
Mr. Thorn was with Imperial Oil Ltd.,
since 1958 in the Vancouver office as
price analvst.
An active worker in the commerce
alumni division, he chaired two of their
committees, the graduate placement committee which compiled a useful survey of
present placement practices in business
and industry, and most recently the committee which planned the first seminar for
commerce graduates, held on January 27.
He resigned from this committee when he
was appointed assistant director.
Mr. Thorn was born in Saskatchewan
and attended hi"h school in Alberta. As
an undergraduate he won several awards
and bursaries and was active in campus
orranizations.

Provincial high school students are the
big winners in the most successful Alumni
Annual Giving Campaign we have had
yet in the history of the University of
British Columbia.
The board of management of the
Alunmi Association has announced that
the number of Alumni Regional Scholarships will be almost doubled, from 22 to
42. The scholarships are awarded annually on recommendation from Alumni
branch members throughout B.C.
In the past years, many of the best
scholars from all parts of British Columbia have attended U.B.C. on Alumni Regional  Scholarships.  Each  award  is  for
$300.00. By increasing the number of
scholarships from 22 to 42, the Alumni
Association will be able to provide a
scholarship for a high school graduate
in every one of the 42 electoral districts
of the province.
Alan Eyre of Vancouver, 1961 Campaign Chairman, stated that the total
Campaign receipts to December 31st were
$30,378. A final report showing the allocation of funds, is given on this page.
Further donations have continued to
arrive at the Alumni Association's Office
since the beginning of the year. They will
be shown in the 1962 report.
In  announcing the total  of the  1961
Annual Giving Campaign, Mr. Eyre
praised the University alumni who, he
said, "are almost without equal in working for their Alma Mater—not only while
on campus, but in their productive years
after graduation".
He gave particular praise to the alumni
committees who represent the Association in their home towns. "They are absolutely essential to the success of the Regional Scholarship programme," he said.
Because the campaign was so successful the board of management have asked
the same Committee members to plan
and direct the coming 1962 Annual Giving Campaign.

27 Branches busy with Conferences on Higher Education
Kootenays
Preliminaries are now underway for
the formation of a conference planning
committee in the East and West Kootenay
regions as the first step to holding Regional Conferences on Higher Education
in these areas. These committees will have
the job of laying conference plans most
suited to the needs of citizens in the
Kootenay regions. The conference programme will feature well-known speakers
from the University, business, and community fields, and will be open to the
public. It is hoped that from such conferences will come an on-going regional
organization to define and work for higher education on a broad regional basis in
British Columbia.
Bill Rodgers appointed
Homecoming Chairman
Bill Rodgers, BASc'61 in mechanical
engineering, has been appointed chairman of the Alumni Homecoming committee for 1962. He was treasurer on the

You, Too, Can Be An Umbrage-Taker
A WELL KNOWN English funny-paper has drawn attention to a significant social phenomenon: The Umbrage Taker. It appears, and no wonder, that more
people are today taking umbrage at more things than
ever before and that you're strictly from nowheresville
if your umbrage-taking is not wide in scope and sharply
pointed It follows, naturally, that well informed people
are the best umbrage takers and it is no accident that
they are nearly all devoted students of the news of the
day. Anyone who reads a good newspaper, like the Sun,
knows about more things to take umbrage at than the
average or non-informed person.

William H. Mathews, BASc, MASc'41,
PhD(Calif.), a geologist at U.B.C, was
part of a team of scientists who discovered salt water trapped 10,000 years ago
in land-locked Powell Lake near Powell
River. The salt water, poisonous and incapable of sustaining life, was found 400
feet below the surface of the lake, confirming a theory that Powell Lake was
once an inlet of the sea. The lake is one
of the deepest in the province and the
salt water is the oldest trapped sea water
yet discovered. The deposit contained
methane, which is the chief component
of natural gas, and hydrogen sulphide, a
poisonous gas smelling like rotten eggs.
The observations were conducted for
the U.B.C. Institute of Oceanography.
The two other members of the team
were Dr. Peter Williams, a chemist, and
Dr. George Pickard, physicist, and director of the Institute.

with facts about the hospital care they are
giving the province's residents. This information, with the aid of elaborate and
costly equipment, is distilled to provide
the basis for comprehensive planning of
hospital services and co-ordination of the
plan's operation on a province-wide basis.

James E. Miltimore, BSA, officer in
charge of the animal husbandry section
of the Canada Research Station at Summerland, along with his colleagues is performing a unique experiment on cows.
Plastic "portholes" cut into the flanks of
four Jersey cows are helping livestock
experts find out what causes bloat, a
severe stomachache caused by the accumulation of gases from the fermentation
of forage in the rumen (the first stomach
in cud-chewing livestock). The portholes,
with removable caps, enable scientists to
observe the digestive processes in the
cow's stomachs. They are also able to
reach through the portholes to extract
samples for testing. Dr. Miltimore says
the fully grown Jerseys lead normal lives,
mingling with other cattle and calving;
and also providing an attraction for visitors.

Mary   Rawson,   BA,   MA'52,   MRP-
(N.C.), a Vancouver woman economist,
has written a paper proposing to shift
property taxation to land alone. Her
widely publicized report, "Property Taxation and Urban Development", issued
from Washington, D.C, suggests that the
shift would encourage better use of land
and greater capital investment while it
would discourage land speculation and
urban sprawl. The report originated from
Miss Rawson's master's thesis completed
at the department of city and regional
planning, University of North Carolina,
in 1959. It has received considerable publicity, including a front page article in
the New York Times. Miss Rawson now
heads her own firm of town planning
consultants in Vancouver, Rawson Consultants Limited, and has done considerable work for the Lower Mainland Regional Planning Board.

John J. Krahn, MD'55, is completing
a two year assignment in Hebron, Jordan,
where he conducted a medical clinic under the auspices of the Mennonite Central Committee. According to his report
there has been a definite increase in the
number of cases examined by the doctor.
They now have patients coming from
Sorif to Beit Kahil, near Hebron, and
from as far as Yutta (by donkey), over
twenty kilos from the clinic. There was
only one baby clinic in 1960 and now
there are three. Here the babies are given
special care and supplementary milk
(especially under-nourished ones). These
clinics have saved many infants' lives in
their short existence. In January 1961 the
clinic introduced a modest Eye Research
Programme called EE. It includes registration of all the infants born after the
above date and special eye care for two
years. Since there is no dentist within
reach of the villagers, a new project for
teeth has been introduced. The tooth extraction service has meant more than the
medical service to someone in great pain
with an aching, carious tooth! Dr. Krahn
and his family will be going to Heidelberg during the present year where he
will take post graduate studies.

Rosalind   Watson    Young,    MA(Mc-
Gill), LLD'61, Convocation Founder,
died February 2, 1962, in Victoria in her
88th year. She was the widow of Dr.
Henry Esson Young, called the Founder
of the University.
She is survived by her four children,
Fyvie (Mrs. H. H. Heal) BASc'31;
Henry Esson BA'33; Rosalind (Mrs. Alfred Watts) BA'33; Mary (Mrs. William
Higgins) BA'36.
When she received an honorary degree
last year at Victoria College's first Congregation, the citation read as follows:
This accomplished and dedicated woman was born in the province of Quebec.
At a time when few women attended
university, Mrs. Young, then Rosalind
Watson, graduated from McGill University with First Class Honors in Natural
Science, the recipient of the Sir William
Logan Gold Medal. A thesis on the mineral resources of Texada Island won her
the M.A. degree from the same university in 1900. Subsequently she was elected to the Institute of Mining Engineers
of England, the Canadian Mining Institute, and la Societe Geographic de
France.
She moved to Victoria in 1896, and
thereafter served the community and the
cause of education unselfishly and with
distinction. Mrs. Young was the first
woman graduate to be employed by the
Victoria School Board and, after teaching
for one year in the Girls' Central School,
joined the staff of the Victoria High
School. In this latter capacity she began
her long and meritorious association with
Victoria College. She was one of the instructors of the first College class in 1903.
After her marriage in that year to Dr.
Henry Esson Young, the leader in establishing the University of British Columbia, she continued her devotion to the
cause of higher education in Victoria.
Mrs. Young was the first President of
the University Women's Club and a
founding member of the University Extension Association. In 1946 she was the
first woman to be elected as its President.
The University of British Columbia and
Victoria College, therefore, delight to
honor Rosalind Young.

Thomas Lloyd Klinkhamer, BSA, died
at Ladner in November, 1961. Mr.
Klinkhamer was 42. He was assistant
livestock commissioner in Manitoba before going to Ladner in 1955. Mr. Klinkhamer is survived by his wife, Joan, two
sons and a daughter in Ladner, and a
brother, Maurice G. Klinkhamer, BA'34,
BEd'47 of Cranbrook.
1948
Ervin Osgood Witherly, BA(Sask),
BEd, died November 5, 1961 at his farm
on Lulu Island. Mr. Witherly had been
principal of Henry Hudson Elementary
School for the past three years. He joined the Vancouver school board in 1943
after teaching for four years in West
Vancouver. He taught at Hastings and
Dawson Elementary and King Edward
High Schools. He was senior assistant
principal of Kingsford-Smith Elementary
School and was principal of Alexander
Elementary School for a year. Mr.
Witherly was a keen musician and played
several woodwind instruments. He also
played golf and coached student baseball
teams. He is survived by his wife, Margaret, two sons and a daughter, Mrs.
John Milne (nee Nancy L. Witherly, BA
'60), of London, England.
1956
Kenneth Douglas Hilborn, BA, died of
leukemia on October 23, 1961 at the age
of 26. Mr. Hilborn travelled to New
York and Brazil before returning to
U.B.C. to take teacher training in 1957.
He taught school for the Southern Peru
Copper Corporation in Toquepala, Peru,
from September 1958 to March 1960,
when he contracted leukemia. He then
returned to Vancouver and taught at Sir
Winston Churchill High School until
September, 1961. Mr. Hilborn had begun
to work on his master's degree during the
1960-61 evening sessions. He leaves his
wife, the former Barbara Gene Leather-
dale, BA'58, his parents, a sister and
brother and his grandfather.
Professor Emeritus James Henderson,
formerly professor of philosophy for
many years at the University of British
Columbia, died at the home of his
daughter, Mrs. H. D. Robinson on January 23, 1962 in his 97th year.
Professor Henderson was born in
Dumfriesshire and was an honors graduate in classics and philosophy of Glasgow University in the great days of that
institution when it was adorned by such
figures as Caird in philosophy, Gilbert
Murray in Greek, and Kelvin in science.
The family still have Professor Henderson's notes of Caird's lectures written in
a most meticulous hand as well as a
stack of book prizes which he collected
during his undergraduate days.
After coming to Canada in 1899 he
spent most of his life in teaching. In
1901 he joined the staff of the old red
High School on Cambie Street and later
taught Latin and English at King Edward High School; later still he taught
philosophy at the old McGill College.
When the University of British Columbia
was opened in 1915 he retained that position and continued as professor of philosophy until 1933, when he retired. The
later years of his life were spent with his
wife at their home near Grantham's
Landing.
Professor Henderson will always be
remembered by his many former students and colleagues with affection and
respect. In his time he was probably the
best-loved member of faculty. He had a
genuine vein of Scots humor, somewhat
grim but always generous. His definition
of hell, "A man of 65 looking back on a
well-spent youth." A favorite guest at
class reunions, he kept in touch with the
life of the University until very recent
years. His passing marks the severance
of another of the few remaining links
with the earliest days of the University
of British Columbia.
