HISTORICAL SKETCH
The creation of a University in British Columbia was first
advocated by Superintendent Jessop in 1877, but it was not until
1890 that the Provincial Legislature passed an Act establishing
a body politic and corporate named "The University of British
Columbia." In 1891 this Act was amended to require that a
meeting of the Senate be held within one month after the election
of the Senators by Convocation. The Senators were elected, but
a quorum did not assemble on the date fixed by the Chancellor,
Dr. I. W. Powell, of Victoria. Thus the first attempt to establish a
University in British Columbia failed.
However, some of the work normally done in a University was
begun in 1894, when an Act was passed which permitted the
affiliation of high schools in the Province with recognized Canadian
Universities. In 1899 Vancouver High School was affiliated with
McGill University in order to provide First Year work in Arts,
and took the name of Vancouver College. First Year work in
Arts was offered by Victoria High School when it became Victoria
College by affiliation with McGill University in 1902. In the same
year Vancouver College undertook the Second Year in Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution
for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia, which, in
the same year, established at Vancouver the McGill University
College of British Columbia. The scope of the work undertaken
by this college was gradually increased until at the time it was
taken over by the University of British Columbia it was giving
three years in Arts and Science, and two years in Applied Science.
When the University of British Columbia opened in the autumn
of 1915, both the McGill University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College, which since 1907 had been a part of it, ceased to
exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr.
H. E. Young, Minister of Education, in 1907, when he introduced
a "University Endowment Act." This Act was followed in 1908
by an Act establishing and incorporating the University of British
Columbia and repealing the old Act of 1890-1. This Act, with its
subsequent amendments, determines the present constitution of the
University.
As authorized by an Act passed by the Provincial Legislature
in 1910, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed a Site
Commission to decide upon a site for the proposed University. The
Commission held its first meeting on May 25th, 1910, in Victoria, 16 The University op British Columbia
and after a thorough examination of the Province recommended
the vicinity of Vancouver. In the autumn the Executive Council
decided to place the University at Point Grey—the site which the
Commission had named as its first choice. In 1911 the Legislature
passed an Act authorizing the Lieutenant-Governor in Council to
grant this site to the University. The grant was increased in 1915,
so that it now consists of 548 acres at the extremity of Point Grey.
The waters of the Gulf of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University Campus. A tract of some 3,000 acres of
Government land immediately adjoining the site, and lying between
it and the City of Vancouver, has been set aside by the Government
in order that University revenue may be provided by its sale or
lease.
In February, 1912, the Hon. H. E. Young, Minister of Education, called for competitive plans which should include plans in
detail for four buildings to be erected immediately, and a block
plan showing all the proposed buildings on the Campus. Messrs.
Sharp and Thompson, of Vancouver, B. C, were the successful
competitors, and were appointed University Architects.
The first Convocation, held on August 21st, 1912, chose Mr.
F. L. Carter-Cotton as first Chancellor of the University. In March,
1913, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed as President
of the University F. F. Wesbrook, M.A., M.D., CM., LL.D. On
April 4th, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie was elected Chancellor.
Dr. McKechnie has been re-elected continuously since that date
and entered on his seventh term in May, 1936. On the death of
President Wesbrook, October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean of the
Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed acting President, and on
June 1st, 1919, President.
From its opening in 1915 till the Summer of 1925, the
University carried on its work in temporary quarters on part of
the site of the General Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work was commenced on the Science Building at
the permanent site in Point Grey in 1914, but was interrupted
beeause of war conditions. Work on this building was resumed in
1923, and in the Autumn of the same year the contract was let for
the Library. These two buildings, which are of stone and are
fireproof, conform closely to the original plans as prepared by
the architects in 1914. The initial units of these structures, as well
as nine other buildings which are of a less permanent character,
were completed in 1925, and at the beginning of Session 1925-26
the University commenced work in its new quarters.
The Inauguration of the new buildings was held on October
15th and 16th, 1925, on which occasion honorary degrees were
granted by the University for the first time. Historical Sketch 17
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNIVERSITY
The Constitution of the University is governed by the British
Columbia University Act, B.C.R.S. 1924, c. 265, and Amending
Acts, which provide
That the University shall consist of a Chancellor, Convocation,
Board of Governors, Senate, the Faculty Council, and the
Faculties; that the first Convocation shall consist of all
graduates of any university in His Majesty's dominions
resident in the Province two years prior to the date fixed
for the first meeting of Convocation, together with twenty-
five members selected by the Lieutenant-Governor in
Council. After the first Convocation it shall consist of the
Chancellor, Senate, members of the first Convocation, and
all graduates of the University; that the Chancellor shall
be elected by Convocation; that the Board of Governors
shall consist of the Chancellor, President, and nine persons
—three elected by the Senate and six appointed by the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council; that the Senate shall
consist of: (a) The Chancellor, and the President of
the University, who shall be chairman thereof; (b) the
deans and two professors of each of the Faculties elected
by members of the Faculty; (c) three members to be
appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council; (d) the
principals of the normal schools; (e) one member elected
by the high-school principals and assistants who are actually
engaged in teaching; (/) one member to be elected by the
governing body of every affiliated college or school in
this Province; (g) fifteen members to be elected by Convocation from the members thereof; (h) one member elected
by the British Columbia Teachers' Federation.
It is further provided that the University shall be non-sectarian.
The University Act gives the University full powers to grant
such degrees in the several Faculties and different branches of
knowledge as the Senate may from time to time determine. It
reserves for the University the sole right in this Province to confer
degrees, except in Theology, and it expressly enacts that'' No other
university having corporate powers capable of being exercised
within the Province shall be known by the same name, nor shall
any such university have power to grant degrees."
S\ LOCATION AND BUILDINGS
Location
The University is situated on the promontory which forms the
western extremity of the Point Grey Peninsula. On three sides it
is bounded by the Gulf of Georgia. The site comprises an area of
548 acres," of which approximately one-half is campus. In all
directions appear snow-capped mountains, strikingly rugged and
impressive.
Buildings
The buildings, planned to meet the requirements of fifteen
hundred students, are of two classes, permanent and semi-permanent. The former were designed by the University architects,
Messrs. Sharp and Thompson, the latter by architects of the
Department of Public Works of the Provincial Government. The
permanent buildings have been erected in the location originally
assigned for them; the others in the quadrangle designated as
"unassigned" in the original plan. By utilizing the "unassigned"
area for the semi-permanent buildings, all the locations intended
for future expansion have been left available.
The entire mechanical equipment of these buildings was
designed after a close study had been made not only of present
requirements, but of the ultimate development of the institution.
This consideration accounts for the fact that only a part of the
present equipment is permanent. After a careful survey of the whole
system, a forced hot water system was found to present advantages
that made its adoption advisable. Direct radiation with a system of
warmed air supply and extraction for ventilation is used to take care
of the heat losses in the buildings. A separate system of ventilation is
installed for all sanitary conveniences, and a specially constructed
system for fume closets. The various services throughout these
buildings, such as hot and cold water, distilled water, gas and steam
for laboratory purposes, compressed air, etc., with the necessary
apparatus, are all of a modern type. An attempt has been made to
reduce vibration and noise to a minimum by installing all moving
apparatus on floating slabs, with a further insulation of cork.
Library
The University Library contains 115,000 volumes and about
25,000 pamphlets. It includes representative works in all the
courses offered by the University, and a growing collection of books
in other subjects. Location and Buildings 19
It is one of three Canadian Depositories of the Library of Congress Catalogue, a collection of more than 1,500,000 printed cards,
valued at $65,000.00. The Catalogue is housed in the main lobby
of the Library building. Alphabetical classification, which has been
proceeding since the gift was received three years ago, will be completed this year.
The Library also possesses a College Art Teaching Equipment
Set, organized and presented by the Carnegie Corporation of New
York. This consists of about 185 specially selected works covering
the fine and applied arts, and of more than 2,000 reproductions,
photographed or coloured, illustrating these.
The Carnegie Corporation of New York has recently made another notable gift to the University—the College Music Set. This
consists of almost 1,000 records representing musical development
in all its forms, with reproducing instruments specially designed
for a large auditorium, and a special collection of books on musical
theory and history, together with a large number of orchestral
scores. The Set is regularly used for student recitals, and to illustrate lectures on the appreciation of music.
The Library receives regularly about 680 magazines and
periodical publications.
The book collection is classified throughout on the Congressional
system.
Books to which the teaching staff have specially referred their
students are placed in a "Reserved" class. These are shelved apart
from the main collection, and are loaned only for use in the building,
and for a limited period.
Unbound periodicals are not loaned. Bound periodicals, and books
that are costly, rare, or unsuitable for general circulation, are loaned
only under special conditions.
While the Library is primarily for the staff and students of the
University, its resources are available to those of the general public
engaged in research or special study, and who make personal application to the Librarian for the privilege of its use. Such persons are
known as "extra-mural Readers". By order of the Board of Governors a fee of $1.00 per calendar year is charged such readers. In
addition, they pay necessary mailing costs, a deposit being required
from those unable to call personally for books loaned.
The University is deeply indebted to all who have made gifts to
the Library. These have been both valuable and numerous. Their
number prevents detailed acknowledgment, but recognition should
be made of a number of sets of transactions, and complete or partial
sets of scientific periodicals, given by societies and friends of the
University. The most interesting and valuable of these gifts are listed
in the annual report of the Library to the Senate. '20 The University of British Columbia
Gymnasium
This building was completed in 1929 and presented to the
University by the Alma Mater Society. It is situated adjacent to
the tennis courts and conveniently close to the playing fields. The
style of architecture and exterior .finish harmonizes well with that
of the other buildings on the campus. The playing floor has an
area of 6,000 square feet, and is surrounded on three sides by tiers
of benches which will accommodate 1,400 persons. In the space
behind these seats are located the dressing rooms, drying rooms,
locker rooms and shower baths. Approximately one-third of this
space has been set aside for the exclusive use of the women
students. The offices of the instructors in physical education are
located in the gymnasium. In the building are included also a
properly equipped training and first-aid room, an equipment room
and a kitchen. Facilities for general gymnasium and indoor athletic
work have been provided.
Stadium and Playing Fields
In accordance with the original landscape plan prepared by
Mawson in 1913, the main playing field area, consisting of about
16 acres, is situated east of the East Mall and north of the University Boulevard. Development work was started early in January,
1931, as an aid to the acute unemployment situation, and was made
possible by funds provided chiefly by subscriptions from the
Faculty, students, and friends of the University. Much of the
labour was obtained through the courtesy of the Relief Department
of the City of Vancouver. Twenty thousand cubic yards of soil and
gravel were used to bring the track and field to grade. The total
cost to date has been approximately $20,000.
In addition to the main playing field of the stadium, there are
three other full-size fields and a number of smaller areas set aside
for outdoor games.
The first section of the grandstand for the stadium was erected
in the summer of 1937 on the west side of the main playing field.
It is a covered, reinforced concrete structure, 126 feet long and
provides seating accommodation for 1,600 spectators. On either
side are two wooden bleacher sections of 500 seats each. The plan
provides for the ultimate continuance of the main section around
the field and therefore the present bleachers are constructed in
movable sections. Underneath the present main stand there are
locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers, ticket booths and specially
constructed drying rooms. Space is also provided for two squash
racket courts, which will be completed as soon as funds are available. Funds for the construction of the grandstand were provided
through a $40,000 bond issue by the Alma Mater Society.    Each Endowments and Donations 21
student contributes three dollars annually towards the liquidation
of these bonds. The Provincial Government has undertaken to
assume the annual charges for interest on the bonds.
Forest Products Laboratories
The Forest Products Laboratories of Canada, Vancouver
Laboratory, which is maintained by the Forest Service of the
Department of Mines and Resources, Canada, occupies three buildings provided and kept up through a co-operative agreement
between the University and the Dominion Government.
Plan of Campus
The plan at the back of the Calendar shows the buildings
which have been erected and indicates the nature of their construction. It also shows their relation to the other groups of buildings
which are to be erected in the future.
ENDOWMENTS AND DONATIONS
It has become a tradition for each Graduating Class to make a
gift to the University. That of the Class of 1937 took the form of
an Alma Mater Loan Fund for students who have completed at
least one year.
A list of the other most important gifts received during last
year is given below under the various departments or in the Annual
Report of the Library.

GENERAL   INFORMATION
The Session
The academic year begins on the First of September and ends
on the last day of August. The Winter Session is divided into two
terms—the first, September to December; the second, January to
May. The Summer Session consists of seven weeks' instruction in
July and August, for which preparatory reading is required except
in certain cases. For "Admission to the University," see Page 30,
and for "Registration and Attendance" see Page 32, General Information 25
Courses of Study
For the Session of 1938-39 the University offers instruction in
each of the three Faculties, Arts and Science, Applied Science
(including Nursing), and Agriculture, leading to the degrees of
Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Applied
Science, Bachelor of Science in Forestry and Bachelor of Science in
Agriculture. A course is given in the Faculty of Arts and Science
leading to a Diploma of Social Service, and a Teacher Training
Course is given for graduates. Advanced courses of instruction
and facilities for research leading to a Master's degree are offered
in each Faculty. Admission to these advanced courses, or to the
privileges of research, does not in itself imply admission to
candidacy for a higher degree.
Academic Dress
The undergraduate's gown is black in colour and of the
ordinary stuff material, of ankle length, and with long sleeves
and the yoke edged with khaki cord. The graduate's gown is the
same, without cord. The Bachelor's hood is of the Cambridge
pattern, black bordered with the distinctive colour of the particular
Faculty, the Bachelor of Commerce hood being differentiated by
the addition of a white cord; the Master's hood is the same, lined
with the distinctive colour. The colours are, for Arts and Science, the
University blue; for Applied Science, red; for Agriculture, maize.
Department of University Extension
Under a grant from the British Dominions and Colonies Fund
of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the University of British
Columbia organized early in 1936 a Department of University
Extension. This department carries on most of the usual University Extension activities, including a program for Adult Education.
The Grant from the Carnegie Corporation has enabled the University to collect much valuable information upon the special
requirements of Adult Education in British Columbia. Various
experimental projects have been tried, and, based on the experience
gained, have been rejected, modified, or accepted as the basis for a
permanent program. It is hoped to evolve a practicable policy—
one adapted to the local conditions, sound in educational concept,
comprehensive in scope, yet not unduly exacting in financial cost.
It is felt that the University, through its activities in the field of
Adult Education, can contribute enduring benefits to the educational and social welfare of the Province.
The present activities of the department include the following:
(a) Extension Lectures.
Through the department a limited number of extension 26 The University of British Columbia
lectures  are   offered   at  various  centres   throughout   the
Province.
(b) Study-Groups.
Study-group courses on subjects related to the general
work of the University are given each year.
(c) Short Courses.
Short courses carrying no academic credit are offered
by the department during both the Winter and Summer
Sessions.
(d) Visual Instruction.
(i) Lantern and Film Slide Service. Approximately 100
sets of lantern and film slides, many with lectures, are
available for loan to schools, churches and organizations
carrying on educational work. A catalogue of these
slides may be obtained upon application.
(ii) Moving Picture Service. Full particulars regarding
films and niachines available for rental will be supplied
upon application.
(e) Radio.
From its studio on the campus, the department presents
each year a number of educational broadcasts.
(f) Library.
Through the University Extension Library, the department offers assistance to those who wish to do systematic
reading on any subject.
(g) Art and Music.
The facilities supplied by the Carnegie Art Teaching
Set and the Carnegie Music Set enable the department to
offer courses in this field.
(h) Public Relations.
Frequently items of interest to the public are prepared
and released to the press.    The department of University
Extension offers its services to any individual, group or
organization  requiring   information  regarding   the   University.
Full particulars regarding any of the above services will be
furnished upon application to the Director, Department of University Extension.
University Health Service
This service was begun in 1925 when the Lieutenant-Governor
in Council, upon the recommendation of the Provincial Health
Officer, appointed a Medical Health Officer for the University Area.
In the Fall of 1927, the Provincial Health Officer added to the
University Health Service a Public Health Nurse, thus commencing the continuous operation of a full-time local Health Department General Information 27
on the Campus and University Endowment Area.
In November, 1936, the University Endowment Area became
part of the Metropolitan Health Area under the direction of the
Metropolitan Health Board, thus affording the University the extra
services and facilities enjoyed by the larger organization, which
provides through its Health Units a Public Health Service to the
entire Greater Vancouver Area. The University Area is now Health
Unit 3A of the Greater Vancouver Area.
The offices of the University Health Service are located in the
Auditorium Building. The first aid furniture and supplies for
this office were the generous gift of the Graduating Class of 1927.
Purposes of the University Health Service
The first purpose of the Health Service for Students is to supervise the physical and mental health of the student from the time of
his admission to University until he graduates, so that as he
takes his place in the outside world he will not be handicapped by
physical defects or mental breakdown during the period in which
he is adjusting himself to his career.
On admission to University each student is given a complete
physical examination; also all students who have not had an examination by this University for more than four years. Before participation in athletics all women students are given an annual examination. Later the medical officer has a personal conference during
the Fall term with all those who received examination. This conference is for the purpose of individualizing the previous examination and for the rechecking and "following-up" of any physical
defects which were found at the time. Students are checked as to
physical fitness for participation in strenuous athletics. Evidence,
satisfactory to the medical officer, of successful immunization
against smallpox is required.
Preventive vaccinations and innoculations are given by the
Health Service. The Medical Officer is available at specified hours
for consultations with students on health problems, and personal
and emotional problems, worries, etc.
One of the most important tasks of the Health Service is the
control of communicable disease. Much valuable time can be saved
the student body by the prompt and immediate application of preventive measures in checking the spread of communicable disease.
Tuberculosis Control
Because Tuberculosis occupies first place as a cause of death of
persons of college age, it is given special attention. The University
Health Service gives, therefore, to each new student at the time of
his entrance examination a tuberculin skin test and an X-ray of
the chest of every student who shows a reaction to tuberculin.   This 28 The University of British Columbia
project is of tremendous value, for when Tuberculosis is diagnosed
and treatment instituted before physical breakdown occurs, the
patient is saved from years of invalidism and perhaps death, and
his fellow students can be protected from infection.
Rules Governing Communicable and Other Illnesses
Students developing any illness or suffering from any injury
while on the Campus should apply for first aid to the University
Health Service. This is particularly required if the student develops any illness of any communicable nature, including the Common
Cold. Provision is made also for the diagnosis of the infectious
cases and their safe removal to suitable quarters.
Students developing any illness or suffering any injury while at
home, boarding house, fraternity house, etc., are required to report
the same to the University Health Service. The development of any
infectious disease in a University student or any person living in
the same house, must be reported by the student to the University
Health Service without delay.
Students exposed to any communicable disease must immediately report to the University Health Service. Such persons may
be permitted, by special order of the Medical Health Officer, to
attend the University for a prescribed period, despite the exposure.
Such students shall report daily (or oftener, at the discretion
of the Medical Health Officer) to the University Health Service for
such prescribed period. Failure to so report, will result in immediate exclusion from the University.
Students absent on account of illness must present Medical Certificates. If the absence occurs during the session, the student must
appear in person, with the certificate, at the University Health
Service immediately on return to the University, and before attendance upon class work. The University Health Service will examine
the person concerned and will immediately forward the certificate,
with report thereon, to the Dean of the Faculty. If the absence
occurs during the examinations, the medical certificate must be sent
to the Dean of the Faculty within two days after the termination of
the examination period. A medical certificate must show the nature
and the period of the disability. Medical report forms may be
obtained from the Health Service Office.
The Health Service is a preventive service and can not provide
treatment for sick students.
Physical Education
Physical Education was organized at the University during the
session 1935-36. A physical education programme contributes to
the health of the student body by encouraging participation in all
forms of athletic games, and by offering classes in physical training General Information 29
suited to the needs of the various groups of students.
The work for the present is under the general supervision of a
committee appointed by the President of the University. There are
divisions for both men and women.
The work is on a voluntary basis and carries no University
credit. The activities are limited by the accommodation at the
gymnasium, but include for men: badminton, basketball, boxing,
cross-country running, fencing, golf, gymnastics, volleyball, wrestling, track and field, football and rugby. The women's activities
include: archery, badminton, basketball, dancing, gymnastics, light
apparatus and volleyball.
Series of lectures are offered in recreational leadership, healthful living and the principles of physical education. Instruction is
given also in the theory and practice of teaching physical education in schools, playgrounds and recreational centres.
The geographical location of the University precludes the possibility of any extensive inter-collegiate athletic competition and consequently great emphasis is placed for both men and women upon
intramural athletics.
University Employment Bureau
The objects of the Employment Bureau are to provide students
with summer employment, to provide part-time work for students
during the Winter Session, and to help students in obtaining
positions after graduation. This service is for employers seeking
help and for students desiring employment. Those who know of
positions vacant are requested to notify the Bureau Correspondence
should be addressed to the Employment Bureau, Registrar's Office.
Dean of Women
During the session the Dean of Women may be consulted by
parents and students on matters pertaining to living conditions,
vocational guidance, and other questions that directly affect the
social and intellectual life of the women students.
Board and Residence
A list of boarding-houses, which receive men or women students,
but not both, may be obtained from the Registrar. Men and women
students are not permitted to lodge in the same house, unless they
are members of the same family, or receive special permission from
the Senate. Women students under twenty-five years of age are
permitted to occupy suites in apartment houses only when accompanied by some older person. Any such arrangement must be made
in consultation with the Dean of Women. The Dean of Women also
undertakes the inspection and approval of the boarding houses listed
for women. The cost of good board and lodging is from $25 per
month upwards; of a room alone, $8 to $12 per month. A grill is 30 The University of British Columbia
operated under the supervision of the University, and lunch, afternoon tea and light supper may be obtained there at very reasonable
prices. Refreshments at social functions are also supplied.
General Conduct
The University authorities do not assume responsibilities which
naturally rest with parents. This being so, it is the policy of the
University to rely on the good sense and on the home training of
students for the preservation of good moral standards.
ADMISSION  TO  THE UNIVERSITY
All enquiries relating to admission to the University should be
addressed to the Registrar.
The accommodation for students in the University is limited. The University, therefore, reserves the right to limit the
attendance.
For the session 1938-39 the number of First Year students in
the Faculty of Arts and Science (including the First Year of the
Course Leading to the Social Service Diploma) and the Faculty of
Agriculture will be limited to 450, in the Second Year of the course
in Applied Science to 120, in the Second Year of the course in Nursing and Health to 20, and, in the Teacher Training course to 60.
1. Except under special circumstances, no student under the
age of sixteen is admitted to the University. For admission to the
course in Nursing a student must be seventeen years of age, and for
admission to any course in Social Service, twenty-one years of age.
2. Candidates for admission to the courses in the First Year
of the Faculty of Arts and Science or the Faculty of Agriculture
and to the course in Nursing in Applied Science are required to
pass the Junior Matriculation Examination of the Province of
British Columbia or to submit certificates showing that they have
passed an equivalent examination elsewhere. Students over 18
years of age with full "Normal Entrance" standing, who hold
Normal School certificates, are admitted to the University as having
full Junior Matriculation standing. Special regulations are prescribed for admission to courses in Applied Science, and are given
under the heading of "Admission" in the Applied Science Section
of the Calendar.
3. Students who have passed the Senior Matriculation Examination are admitted to the courses of the Second Year in the
Faculty of Arts and Science. Students who have partial Senior
Matriculation standing, obtained in 1927 or subsequently, will be
granted credit in the First Year in each subject in which they have
made 50 per cent, or over, or in each paper in which they have made
50 per cent, or over, in so far as these papers correspond with those of
the First Year. Admission to the University 3,1
4. A student who has a failure in a subject of the Junior
Matriculation examination standing against him will not be
admitted to the University.
5. The Junior and Senior Matriculation Examinations of the
Province of British Columbia are conducted by the High School
and University Matriculation Board of the Province. This Board
consists of members appointed by the Department of Education and
by the University. The requirements for Matriculation are stated
in the publication, "Requirements for Matriculation," issued by
the University. The courses of study for the various grades in the
high schools are given in the "Programme of Studies for the High
Schools,'' issued by the Department of Education.
6. Certificates or diplomas showing that a candidate has passed
the Matriculation Examination of another University will be
accepted in lieu of the Junior or Senior Matriculation Examinations
if the Faculty concerned considers that the examination has covered
the same subjects and required the same standards. If, however, the
examinations covers some but not all of the necessary subjects,
the candidate will be required to pass the Matriculation Examination
in the subjects not covered.
7. A candidate who wishes to enter by certificates other than a
Matriculation certificate issued in British Columbia should submit
to the Registrar the original certificates. If he wishes these returned
to him, he must present also a copy of each certificate for record at
the University. He should under no circumstances come to the
University without having first obtained from the Registrar a
statement of the value of the certificates he holds, as these may
lack one or more essential subjects, or the work done in a subject
may not be adequate, or, again, the percentage gained may not be
sufficiently high. Moreover, it must be remembered that a certificate
may admit to one Faculty and not to another. When an applicant's
diploma or certificate does not show the marks obtained in the
several subjects of the examination, he must arrange to have a
statement of his marks sent to the Registrar by the Education
Department or University issuing such diploma or certificate. The
fee for examination of certificates is $2.00. This fee must accompany
the application.
8. A student of another University applying for exemption
from any subject or subjects which he has already studied is
required to submit with his application a Calendar of the University in which he has previously studied, together with a complete
statement of the course he has followed and a certificate of the
standing gained in the several subjects.* The Faculty concerned
will determine the standing of such a student in this University.
The fee for the examination of certificates is $2.00. This fee must
accompany the application.
•For the conditions under which exemption is granted in the Faculty of
Arts and Science, see "Courses Leading to the Degree of B.A." 32 The University of British Columbia

1. There are four classes of students:—
(a) Graduate students—Students who are pursuing courses of
study in a Faculty in which they hold a degree, whether
they are proceeding to a Master's degree or not. Students,
however, who are proceeding to a Bachelor's degree in
another course in the same Faculty in which they hold a
degree, or in another Faculty, will register as undergraduates.
(b) Full undergraduates—Students proceeding to a degree in
any Faculty who have passed all the examinations precedent to the year in which they are registered.
(c) Conditioned undergraduates — Students proceeding to a
degree with defects in their standing which do not prevent
their entering a higher year under the regulations governing "Examinations and Advancement" of the Faculty in
which they are registered.
(d) Partial students—Students not belonging to one of the
three preceding classes.  (See 7,Page 33.) Registration and Attendance 33
2. All students are required to register at the office of the
Registrar on or before the last day for registration, to furnish
the information necessary for the University records, to enroll
for the particular classes which they wish to attend, and to sign the
following declaration:
"I hereby accept and submit myself to the statutes, rules,
regulations, and ordinances of The University of British Columbia,
and of the Faculty or Faculties in which I am registered, and to
any amendments thereto which may be made while I am a student
of the University, and I promise to observe the same.''
In the information furnished for the University records,
students are requested to state what church they propose to
make their place of worship. This information is available for any
of the city churches desiring it.
3. A late registration fee of $2.00 will be charged all students
who register after the above dates.
No registration after Monday, October 3rd (two weeks beyond
the date when lectures begin) will be accepted without the special
permission of the Faculty concerned, and a candidate so accepted
for registration may be required to take fewer courses than the
regular year's work.
4. Students registering for the first time must present the
certificates which constitute their qualification for admission to
the course of study for which they wish to register. The Registrar
is empowered to register all duly qualified students. Doubtful cases
will be dealt with by the Faculty concerned.
5. Students doing work in two academic years will register in
the lower year and fill out their course cards in such a way as to
make clear which courses are required to complete the lower year.
6. Students desiring to make a change in the course for which
they have registered must apply to the Registrar on the proper
form for a "change of course." Except in special circumstances,
no change will be allowed after the first week of the session. If
the application is approved by the Faculty concerned, the Registrar
will give the necessary notifications.
7. Partial students, who are not proceeding to a degree, are
not normally required to pass an examination for admission, but
before registering they must produce a certificate showing that
they have satisfied the Dean and the Heads of the Departments
Concerned that they are qualified to pursue with advantage the
course of study which they propose to undertake.
8. Students are required to attend at least seven-eighths of the
lectures in each course that they take. Lectures will commence
on the hour, and admission to a lecture or laboratory and credit 34 The University of British Columbia
for attendance may be refused by the Instructor for lateness,
misconduct, inattention or neglect of duty. Absence consequent on
illness or domestic affliction may be excused only by the Dean of
the Faculty concerned, and medical certificates or other evidence
must be presented. If the absence occurs during the session,
the student must appear in person, with the certificate, at the
University Health Service immediately on return to the University,
and before attendance upon class work. The University Health
Service will examine the person concerned and will immediately
forward the certificate, with report thereon, to the Dean of the
Faculty. If the absence occurs during the examinations, the certificate must be sent to the Dean of the Faculty within two days
after the termination of the examination period. A medical certificate must show the nature and the period of the disability.
Medical report forms may be obtained from the Dean's office. In
cases of deficient attendance students may (with the sanction of
tl Dean and the Head of the Department concerned) be excluded
from the Christmas or the final examinations in a course; but, in
the case of a final examination, unless the unexcused absences
exceed one-fourth of the total number of lectures in a course, such
student may be permitted to sit for supplemental examination.
(See regulation in each Faculty in reference to "Examinations and
Advancement.")
9. All candidates for a degree must make formal application
for graduation at least one month previous to the Congregation at
which they expect to obtain the degree. Special forms for this
purpose may be obtained from the Registrar's office.

must make application to the Registrar not later than the last day
of the final examinations on forms provided for the purpose.

of Senate.
The award of a medal, prize, scholarship or bursary is final when
announced by the University.
3. Medals, scholarships, prizes, bursaries and loans are open to
winter session students only, unless otherwise stated, and marks
obtained in summer session courses are not taken into account in
awarding them.
4. If the award of a medal, scholarship, or prize is based on an
examination, no award will be made to a candidate who obtains
less than 75 per cent, of the possible marks.
5. To be eligible for a General Proficiency Scholarship a student
must take the full year's course, which must include the required
courses for the year in which he is registered, except that in the
Faculty of Arts and Science and in Agriculture, other subjects may
be substituted for the required courses if credit for these has already
been obtained.
The standing of students taking more than the required number
of units shall be determined on the basis of the required number of
units to be chosen in a manner most advantageous to the students.
6. Unless otherwise specified in the Calendar notice, no student
may enjoy the proceeds of more than one scholarship in the same
academic year, and the scholarships thus relinquished will be awarded
to the candidates next in order of merit. Winners of more than one
scholarship will be given recognition in the published lists.

monetary value. Nevertheless, their names will appear as winners
in the University lists. Any funds thus made available will be used
for additional scholarships, bursaries, or student loans.

received from the private donor or donors.
12. The Senate of the University of British Columbia reserves
the right so to change the terms under which any exhibition,
scholarship or prize may be established at the University of British
Columbia that the terms may better meet new conditions as they
arise and may more fully carry out the intentions of the donor
and maintain the usefulness of the benefaction. The right so
reserved shall be exercised by a resolution of the Senate duly confirmed by the Board of Governors, provided always that a year's
notice shall be given in Senate of any proposed change and that the

SCHOLARSHIPS   FOR   UNDERGRADUATES
1. IN ALL FACULTIES
The Rhodes Scholarship*
A Rhodes Scholarship is tenable at the University of Oxford
and may be held for three years. Since, however, the majority
of Rhodes Scholars obtain standing which enables them to take a
degree in two years, appointments are made for two years in the
first instance, and a Rhodes Scholar who may wish to remain for
a third year will be expected to present a definite plan of study for
that period satisfactory to his College and to the Rhodes Trustees.
Rhodes Scholars may be allowed, if the conditions are approved
by their own College and by the Oxford Secretary to the Rhodes
Trustees, either to postpone their third year, returning to Oxford
for it after a period of work in their own countries, or to spend
their third year in post-graduate work at any University of Great
Britain, and in special cases at any University on the continent of
Europe, the overseas Dominions, or in the United States, but not
in the country of their origin.
The stipend of a Rhodes Scholarship is fixed at £400 per year.
At most colleges, and for most men, this sum is not sufficient to
meet a Rhodes Scholar's necessary expenses for Term-time and
Vacations, and Scholars who can afford to supplement it by, say,
£50 per year from their own resources will find it advantageous
to do so.
A candidate to be eligible must:
1. Be a British subject, with at least five years' domicile in
Canada and unmarried. He must have passed his nineteenth, but not have passed his twenty-fifth birthday on
October 1st of the year for which he is elected.
•See   Paragraph   1,   Page Medals, Scholarships and Prizes 45
2. Have reached such a stage in his course at one of the
Universities of Canada that he will have completed at least
two years at the University in question by October 1st of
the year for which he is elected.
Candidates may apply either for the Province in which they
have their ordinary private domicile, home, or residence, or for
any Province in which they have received at least two years of their
college education before applying.
In that section of the will in which he defined the general type
of scholar he desired, Mr. Rhodes wrote as follows:
"My desire being that the students who shall be elected to
the Scholarships shall not be merely bookworms, I direct that in the
election of a student to a Scholarship regard shall be had to:
1. His literary and scholastic attainments.
2. His fondness for and success in manly outdoor sports such
as cricket, football and the like.   ,
3. His qualities of manhood, truth, courage, devotion to duty,
sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship, and
4. His exhibition during school days of moral force of character
and of instincts to lead and to take an interest in his schoolmates, for those latter attributes will be likely in after life
to guide him to esteem the performance of public duties as
his highest aim.''
Full particulars can be obtained from W. Tom Brown, Esq.,
470 Granville Street, Vancouver, B. C, Secretary of the Selection
Committee for the Province of British Columbia.
The selection for any year is made in the previous December,
and each candidate for a scholarship is required to make application
to the Secretary of the Committee of Selection of the Province in
which he wishes to compete not later than October 31st. Application
forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office or from the
Secretary of the Selection Committee.

SUBJECTS NOT IN THIS TIME TABLE  FACULTY OF ARTS AND SCIENCE
The degrees offered in this Faculty are Bachelor of Arts (B.A.),
Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com.), and Master of Arts (M.A.).
Courses which do not lead to degrees are offered in Teacher
Training and Social Service.
COURSES LEADING TO THE DEGREE OF B.A.
The degree of B.A. is granted with Honours or as a General
Course degree. A General Course degree will be granted on completion of courses amounting to 60 units chosen in conformity with
Calendar regulations. No distinction is made between General
Course and Honour students in the First and Second Years, except
as regards prerequisites for later work, but in the Third and Fourth
Years there are special requirements for Honour students.
Students holding the degree of B.Com. from this University
may proceed to the degree of B.A. in one year by completing 15
additional units of work open to students in their Third and Fourth
Years, provided that their additional units are chosen so as to
complete the requirements for the B.A. degree.
It is possible to obtain the B.A. and B.Com. degrees concurrently
in five years on completion of 75 units chosen so as to cover the
requirements for both degrees.
Double courses are offered in Arts and Science and Applied
Science leading to the degrees of B.A. and B.A.Sc, B.A. and B.A.Sc.
(in Nursing), B.A. and B.S.F. and B.Com. and B.S.F. For the
regulations governing these, see Section "Double Courses," at the
end of the Calendar.
It is possible to obtain the B.A. and B.S.F. degrees in five years
on completion of the required units.
Credit will not be given for more than 15 units in the First or
Second Year of the "Winter Session; nor for more than 18 units in the
Third or Fourth Years. (See regulations under "First and Second
Years" and "Third and Fourth Years.")
Credits obtained at the Summer Session (see "University
Summer Session") may be combined with Winter Session credits
to complete the 60 units required for the degree of B.A.; but not
more than 30 units of credit may be obtained in the two academic
years subsequent to Junior Matriculation nor more than 15 in the
academic year subsequent to Senior Matriculation. The degree of
B.A. will not be granted within three years from Senior Matriculation nor within four years from Junior Matriculation.
The maximum credit for Summer Session work in any one
Calendar year is 6 units; and the maximum credit for work other 66 Faculty of Arts and Science
than that of the regular Summer and Winter Sessions is 3 units
in each academic year, and 15 units in all subsequent to Senior
Matriculation or First Year Arts.
No credit will be granted for work done at other universities in
the same academic year in which work has been attempted at this
University, whether in the Summer Session or in the Winter Session
or otherwise. Extra-mural work done at other universities prior to
registration at this University may be accepted, if approved by the
Faculty, but may not exceed 3 units in respect of any one academic
year or 15 units in all subsequent to Senior Matriculation. If a
student is granted credit for extra-mural work taken elsewhere, the
number of units which he may take at this University without attendance at a Winter or Summer Session will be correspondingly reduced.
Pending the establishment of a department of Music in the
University of British Columbia, six units of undergraduate credit
towards a B.A. degree m,ay be granted for music to a student who
holds at the time of graduation any one of the following diplomas:
Associate of the Toronto Conservatory of Music (A.T.C.M.), Licentiate of McGill Conservatorium (L.Mus.), Licentiate of the Royal
Schools of Music, London, (L.R.S.M.), Licentiate of Trinity College
of Music, London, (L.T.C.L.), or an equivalent diploma or certificate from other schools of Music which may be accepted by the
University of British Columbia. If the student's work in music is
done concurrently with the usual University work of the Third and
Fourth Years the credit will be assigned in the Fourth Year; if a
student enters Third Year University having already acquired the
diploma, the credits will normally be assigned evenly between the
Third and Fourth Years. No credits for music will be granted in
the First and Second Years and no student can get credit for music
until the other requirements for the B.A. degree have been satisfied.
Candidates for the degree of B.A. are advised, to attend at least
one Winter Session, preferably that of the Fourth Year.
Courses are described in terms of units. A unit normally consists
of one lecture hour (or one continuous laboratory period of not less
than 'wo or more than three hours) each week throughout the session,
or two lecture hours (or equivalent laboratory periods) throughout
a single term.
Note 1:—Students in any of the affiliated Theological Colleges
who file with the Registrar a written statement expressing their
intention of graduating in Theology will be allowed to offer in each
year of their Arts course, in place of optional subjects set down in
the Calendar for the Year and the course in which they are registered,
Religious Knowledge options, to the extent of three units taken from
the following list: Hebrew, Biblical Literature, New Testament
Greek, Church History, Christian Ethics and Apologetics. First and Second Years 67
Note 2.—Students intending to enter Normal School are advised
to consult Regulations for Admission to Normal Schools (1938),

followed by German 1 and German 2 or Greek 1 and Greek 2 or
Latin 1 and Latin 2 to complete 63 units. The extra three units may
be taken in any year.
3. No student in his First Year may elect more than one beginners' course in a language, and no beginners' course in a language
will count towards a degree unless followed by a second year's work
in that language.
4. Except in the case of beginners' courses, no course in a
language may be taken by a student who has not offered that language
at Matriculation. A beginners' course in a language may not be
taken for credit by a student who has obtained credit for that
language at Matriculation.
5. A student taking three languages in the first two years (18
units) may defer the course selected under Section 1 (e) to the Third
or Fourth Year, and a student taking four science courses (12 units)
may defer the course selected under Section 1 (d) to the Third or
Fourth Year.
6. Students who intend to enter the Teacher Training Course
are advised to take Psychology 1 in the First or Second Year.
Note:—Students thinking of entering Applied Science are
referred to the list of subjects required to be taken by them in First
Year Arts and to the regulations in reference to these, given under
'' Admission'' and '' General Outline of Courses'' in Applied Science.
They are advised to attend the noon hour talks on the choice of a Third and Fourth Years 69
profession and on the life and work in vocations likely to appeal to
Applied Science graduates.
Third and Fourth Years
The requirements of the Third and Fourth Years consist of 30
units, of which students must take, in their Third Year, not less
than 15 units. The graduation standing is determined by the results
of the Third and Fourth Years combined.
General Course Curriculum
1. For the General Course a student must select two major subjects according to either of the following schemes:
A. A minimum of 9 units in one subject and a minimum of 6
units in another subject, both subjects to be chosen from
one of the following groups:
(a) Bacteriology, Botany, Chemistry, Geology (including Geography), Mathematics, Physics, Zoology.
(6) Economics, Education (not more than six units and only
for those who have completed their Normal Training),
English, French, German, Government, Greek, History,
Latin, Mathematics, Philosophy (including Psychology),
Music (6 units).
or
B. A minimum of 9 units in each of two subjects to be chosen
from the following:
Biology (including Botany and Zoology), Chemistry, Latin,
Greek,  English,  History,  Mathematics,  French,  German,
Physics.
Work in the First or Second Year is required in each of the
major subjects, except in Education and Music.
In certain cases, however, this requirement may be fulfilled by
taking a First or Second Year course in the Third Year (see par.
3) but a course thus taken may not count towards the required
units for a major.
In addition to the major subjects a minimum of 6 units must
be chosen from some other subject or subjects.
2. Details of courses available in the Third and Fourth Years
are given under the various departments.
3. Only two subjects (6 units) of the First or Second Year
courses may be taken in the combined Third and Fourth Years. In
a number of these courses extra reading will be required of Third
and Fourth Year students.
When two First or Second Year subjects, other than a Beginners' Language or Language 1, are taken in the Third and Fourth 70 Faculty of Arts and Science
Years, not more than one of these subjects may be outside the departments in which the student is doing his major work.
For the purpose of this regulation the following subjects are
considered Third and Fourth Year subjects: Philosophy 1, Geography 1, Geology 1, Geology 2, German 2 if preceded by Beginners'
German and German 1, Greek 2 if preceded by Beginners' Greek
and Greek 1, Latin 2 if preceded by Beginners' Latin and Latin 1,
Mathematics 4, Botany 1 or Zoo.ogy 1 if both are taken, and *Chem-
istry 4; also the subjects under 1 (d) or 1 (e) postponed to the
Third or Fourth Year, as provided for under Paragraph 5, Page
68.
4. No credit will be given for a language course normally taken
in the First Year unless it is taken in the Third Year and continued
in the Fourth Year. Some courses, however, are intended for Honour
students only.
5. Students in the Third and Fourth Years may, with the consent
of the departments concerned, take one or two courses of private
reading (each to count not more than 3 units), provided that:
1. (a)  The candidate for a reading course shall have completed
his First and Second Years and shall have taken at least
6 units either of Second or Third Year work or of Second
and Third Year work in the subject in which the reading
course is taken; and
(b) shall have made an average of at least Second Class in
the 6 units in question.
2. Both reading courses shall not be chosen in the same subject.
3. A reading course shall not be taken concurrently with Extra-
Sessional or with Summer Session courses except by a student
in the Fourth Year.
Credit for a course of private reading is part of the maximum
of 15 units which may be taken in addition to the regular work of
Winter and Summer Sessions; and no other additional work may
be taken in the same academic year.
Honours Curriculum
1. Students whose proposed scheme of work involves Honour
courses must obtain the consent of the departments concerned and
of the Dean before entering on these courses; and this consent will
normally be granted only to those students who have a clear academic
record at the end of their Second Year with at least Second Class
standing in the subject or subjects of specialization. (Cards of application for admission to Honour courses may be obtained at the
Registrar's office.)
2. Certain departments offer Honour courses either alone or in
combination with other departments. For Honours in a single department, at least 18 of the requisite 30 units must be taken in the
*See prerequisite for Chemistry 4. Honour Courses 71
department concerned, and at least 6 outside it. For Honours in
combined courses, at least 12 units are required in each of two subjects. Particulars of these courses are given below.
3. Candidates for Honours may, with the consent of the department concerned, offer a special reading course (to count not more
than 3 units) in addition to the reading courses offered on page 70,
section 5.
4. All candidates for Honours may, at the option of the department or departments concerned, be required to present a graduating
essay embodying the results of some investigation that they have
made independently. Credit for the graduating essay will be not less
than 3 or more than 6 units. The latest date for receiving graduating
essays in the Spring Term shall be the last day of lectures; and the
corresponding date for the Autumn Congregation shall be October 1.
5. Candidates for Honours are required, at the end of their
Fourth Year, to take a general examination, oral or written, or both,
as the department or departments concerned shall decide. This
examination is designed to test the student's knowledge of his chosen
subject or subjects as a whole, and is in addition to the ordinary
class examinations of the Third and Fourth Years.
6. Honours are of two grades—First Class and Second Class,
Students who, in the opinion of the department concerned, have not
attained a sufficiently high ranking, may be awarded a General
Course degree. If a combined Honour course is taken, First Class
Honours will be given only if both the departments concerned agree;
and an Honour degree will be withheld if either department refuses
a sufficiently high grade.
7. It is hoped to offer the following Honour Courses during the
session 1938-39. But if it is found impossible to do so, the University reserves the right to refuse new registrations in any of them.

COURSE LEADING TO THE DEGREE OF B.Com.
The degree of B.Com. is granted with Honours or as a General
Course degree. A General Course degree will be granted on completion of courses amounting to 60 units chosen in conformity with
Calendar regulations.
It is also possible to obtain the B.A. and B.Com. degrees concurrently in five years on completion of 75 units chosen so as to cover
the requirements for both degrees.
No distinction is made between General Course and Honour
students in the First and Second Years; but a student will not be
accepted as a candidate for Honours in the Third Year unless he has
obtained an average of second class on the courses required to be
taken in the Second Year.
While the B.A. degree may be completed in one year by students
holding the B.Com. degree, the converse is not true, as work in two
consecutive years is required for the B.Com. degree in both Accountancy and Commercial Law. It is, however, possible for students who
are taking the combined degree in five years to qualify for the B.A.
degree at the end of four years by taking additional courses either Course Leading to the Degree of B.Com. 79
in Winter or Summer Session to make up for the six units of
Accountancy and Commercial Law 1 which do not count towards
the B.A. degree.
Options in Forestry have been added in the Second, Third and
Fourth years of the B.Com. course for the benefit of students who
look forward to work with the Forest Industries. Students completing the work for the B.Com. degree with these options and who take
the field work incidental to them may qualify for the degree of
B.S.F. by taking the Fifth Year Forestry Course in Applied
Science.
For the regulations governing the double course leading to the
degrees of B.Com. and B.S.F., see the section "Double Courses"
at the end of the Calendar.
The regulations as to Summer Session credits, number of units
to be taken in any academic year, etc., apply to courses leading to
the degree of B.Com. in the same way as to courses leading to the
degree of B.A.
During the summer vacations students are advised to obtain as
much business experience as possible.
First Year
The following courses comprising 15 units are required:
English 1. 4^
The first course in a language offered for matriculation (Latin
or French or German or Greek).

in the ease of students entering by Senior Matriculation, if Economics 10 is carried as an extra subject.
A clear academic record at the end of the Second Year will be
required of students proceeding to the Third Year.
In view of the importance which rightly attaches to the capacity
for adequate and clear expression in writing, regulation 13, on page
93 "of the Calendar, will be rigidly enforced at the end of the Second
Year, and reasonable legibility in handwriting will be insisted on. 80 Faculty of Arts and Science

is required. A student must, in addition, spend two months with
an accredited social agency as a full-time worker under supervision
prior to registration for the technical courses of the second year.
Students are required to obtain a passing mark in their field work
as well as in lecture work and students whose field work is unsatisfactory may be required to discontinue it at any time. The agency
is not responsible for expenses (such as carfare) incident to the
field work.
•These  courses  will   be  given   in   the   Summer   Session   of   1938. Examination and Advancement 91
Graduates in Arts and Science, who have some experience in
social work, and who have taken as part of their undergraduate
courses a sufficient number of the subjects required for the Diploma
in Social Service to enable them to devote additional time to field
work, may be allowed to obtain the Diploma in one Winter Session
and the succeeding Summer Session.
EXAMINATIONS AND ADVANCEMENT
1. Examinations in all subjects, obligatory for all students, are
held in April. In the case of subjects which are final at Christmas
and in the case of courses of the First and Second years, examinations will be held in December as well. Applications for special consideration on account of illness or domestic affliction must be submitted to the Dean not later than two days after the close of the
examination period. In cases where illness is the plea for absence
from examinations, a medical certificate must be presented on the
appropriate form which may be obtained from the Dean's office.
2. The passing mark will be 50 per cent, in each subject, except
in the case of First and Second Year students who, during one
session, do 15 units of regular work, in which case a percentage of
50 or more will be required in each subject or a general average of
60 per cent, and not less than 40 per cent, in each subject. In Beginners' German, Beginners' Greek, and Beginners' Latin, however,
the passing mark is 50 per cent. In any course which involves both
laboratory work and written examinations, students may be debarred from examinations if they fail to present satisfactory results in
laboratory work, and they will be required to pass in both parts of
the course.
3. Successful candidates will be graded as follows: First Class,
an average of 80 per cent, or over; Second Class, 65 to 80 per cent.;
Passed, 50 to 65 per cent.
4. A student who makes 50 per cent, of the total required for
a full year's work (at least 15 units chosen in conformity with
Calendar regulations), but who fails in an individual subject will
be granted a supplemental examination in that subject if he has
not fallen below 30 per cent, in that subject. If his mark is below
30 per cent, a supplemental examination will not be granted. Notice
will be sent to all students to whom supplemental examinations have
been granted.
A student who makes less than 50 per cent, of the total required
for a full year's work (15 units) will not be allowed a supplemental
examination.
5. A request for the re-reading of an answer paper must be
forwarded to the Registrar WITHIN FOUR WEEKS after the
results of the examinations are announced.    Each applicant must 92 Faculty of Arts and Science
state clearly his reasons for making such a request in view of the
fact that the paper of a candidate who makes less than a passing
mark in a subject is read at least a second time before results are
tabulated and announced. A re-reading of an examination paper
will be granted only with the consent of the Head of the Department concerned. The fee for re-reading a paper is $2.00.
6. Supplemental Examinations will be held in September in
respect of Winter Session examinations, and in June or July in
respect of Summer Session examinations. In the Teacher Training
Course, Supplemental Examinations will be held not earlier than
the third week in June. To pass a supplemental examination a candidate must obtain at least 50 per cent.
In the first three years a candidate who has been granted a supplemental may try the supplemental only once. If he fails in the
supplemental, he must either repeat his attendance in the course or
substitute an alternative chosen in accordance with Calendar regulations. In the case of Fourth Year students two supplemental
examinations in respect of the same course will be allowed.
A candidate with a supplemental examination outstanding in
any subject which is on the Summer Session curriculum may clear
his record by attending the Summer Session course in the subject
and passing the required examinations.
7. Applications for supplemental examinations, accompanied by
the necessary fees (see Schedule of Fees), must be in the hands
of the Registrar by August 15.
8. No student may enter a higher year with standing defective
in respect of more than 3 units. (See regulations in regard to
advancement to Third Year Commerce, page 79 , and in reference to
admission to Second Year Applied Science, page 68.
No student who has failures or supplementals outstanding in
more than 3 units, or who has any failure or supplemental outstanding for more than a year of registered attendance, shall be allowed
to register for more than 15 units of work, these units to include
either the subject (or subjects) in which he is conditioned or per-
missable substitutes. But a student in the Fourth Year will be
permitted to register for 15 units of work in the Fourth Year, even
though he may have failures or supplementals outstanding against
him, providing that these failures or supplementals do not carry
more than three units of credit and that they do not involve the
repetition of a course. Such a student shall not be permitted to
complete his examinations until September.
9. A student may not continue in a later year any subject in
which he has a supplemental examination outstanding from an
earlier year, except in the case of compulsory subjects in the
Second Year. Bacteriology and Preventive Medicine 93
10. A student who is not allowed to proceed to a higher year
may not register as a partial student in respect of the subjects of
that higher year. But a student who is required to repeat his year
will be exempt from attending lectures and passing examinations
in subjects in which he has already made at least 50 per cent. In
this case he may take, in addition to the subjects of the year which
he is repeating, certain subjects of the following year.
11. A student who fails twice in the work of the same year may,
upon the recommendation of the Faculty, be required by the Senate
to withdraw from the University.
12. Any student whose academic record, as determined by the
tests and examinations of the first term of the First or Second Year,
is found to be unsatisfactory, may, upon the recommendation of the
Faculty, be required by the Senate to discontinue attendance at the
University for the remainder of the session. Such a student will not
be readmitted to the University as long as any supplementary examinations are outstanding.
13. Term essays and examination papers will be refused a
passing mark if they are deficient in English; and, in this event,
students will be required to pass a special examination in English
to be set by the Department of English.

Geography
1. Principles of Geography.—This introductory course aims to
develop in the student the point of view of modern geography and
to furnish a foundation or background that will be useful not
alone to those who may intend to continue a study of geography
or to teach it in the schools, but also to those who intend to study
history, economics and other subjects, or to enter business or professional careers, into which geographical considerations enter.
Since geography is a study of the surface of the earth and its
relation to man, the course involves consideration of earth relations;
weathering and soils; land forms and oceans; climates; natural
resources; and a brief introduction to the study of man and his
response to the geographical environment.

between man and his environment in complex western civilization is
investigated.
