. REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT
To the Board of Governors and
the Senate of
The University of British Columbia.
Ladies and Gentlemen:-
I have the honour- to submit the following
report on the work of the University for the academic year
ending August 31st, 1933:
The period under review has been a difficult
one. The effects of the economic distress have been as evident
in the University as they have been in business and in the
administration of Government.  At the beginning of the year
the Board of Governors, realizing the serious nature of the
financial situation, adopted a budget in strict accordance
with its income.  As a result of this policy, the long-
established practice of living within the budget was maintained,
and the fiscal year closed with a small credit balance.
To achieve this result in the face of rapidly
declining revenues could not be accomplished without continuing,
and in a number of instances extending, the drastic restrictive
changes in academic policy and in administrative practice which
have been outlined in previous reports.  While some of the
changes have not resulted in the direct loss of efficiency
which was anticipated, others have been more serious than was
foreseen.  The University has done its utmost to maintain its
standards of previous years; but a comparative study of the
curricula for the past three sessions reveals clearly the wide
disparity between the amount of fundamental work previously
done and that which the present staff is able to accomplish. 3.

clearly wherein tho reduction in the teaching staff was most
pronounced. During tho period undor review the number of
Associate Professors was reduced from 30 to 23; tho number of
Assistant Professors from 20 to 15, and the number of Assistants
from 43 to 17.

Dean R.W.Brock).
Harry Warren, B.A.Sc, D.Phil. ( Oxford)      (Substitute for

Dr. H.W.Hill).
J.W.Mcintosh, B.A., M.B. , D.P.H.(Tor.),L.M.C.C.(Substitute for

Resignations.
Upon his appointment to the professorial staff of Gonville
and Caius College, Cambridge, the Board of Governors accepted the
resignation of H. Ashton, M.A., Litt.D.(Cantab*), D.Litt.(Birmingham) , D.Lett.(Univ.Paris), F.R.S.C., Officier de 1'Instruction
Publique,(France), Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur, Professor
and Head of the Department of Modern Languages.  The acceptance
of Dr. Ashton's resignation represented a distinct loss to the
cause of education in this province.  Associated as he was with the University from its early days, his rare teaching ability
and his notable achievements in the realm of productive scholarship did much to enhance the prestige of the University of
British Columbia at home and abroad.
When the Department of Forestry was organized in 1921,
H.R.Christie, B.Sc.F.(Toronto), was the first man to be appointed
to the staff.  Within a comparatively short time he was promoted to the rank of Professor and Head of the Department, a
position which he continued to occupy until he tendered his
resignation in the spring of 1933.
In the resignation of T.C.Phemister, B.Sc.(Glasgow) ,
Sc.M.(Chicago), Ph.D., D.Sc.(Glasgow), Associate Professor of
Mineralogy and Petrology, to accept a position on the professorial staff of Cambridge University, the University of
British Columbia lost one of the ablest of the younger members
of the staff.
Obituary.
On January 24th, 1931, E.C.Hayward, Esq., of Victoria,
B.C., was appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor-in-Council as
a member of the Senate.  In this capacity Mr. Hayward served
acceptably until his death on February 14th, 1933.
The untimely death of Professor Wilfrid Sadler, B.S.A.,
M.Sc.(McGill), N.D.D.(British Dairy Institute, University
College, Reading, England), Professor and Head of the Department of Dairying, cast a shadow over a wide circle of
colleagues and friends. He was a man of rare personal charm,
of outstanding ability and of marked achievement; and his
tragic passing, while he was on leave of absence, was a loss
which the University and the cause of science in Canada could
ill afford to sustain. Professor Emeritus.
Professor James Henderson, M.A.(Glasgow), having
reached the retiring age, was made Emeritus Professor of
Philosophy.  Professor Henderson's long association with
the University was marked by an unfailing courtesy, a
devotion to duty, and an unselfish interest in the advancement of education.  It is gratifying to his colleagues to
know that Professor Henderson retains his connection with
the University which he served so acceptably for so many
years.
Reappointments to the Board of Governors.
Under date of April 18th, 1933, an Order-in-Council
was passed reappointing His Honour Judge Joseph N. Ellis,
B.C.L., K.C., and William H. Malkin, Esq., both of Vancouver,
B.C., and Benjamin C. Nicholas, Esq., of Victoria, B.C.,
members of the Board of Governors until the 4th day of
April, 1939.
Honorary Degrees.
At the Spring Congregation, the Honorary Degree of
Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, was conferred upon His Honour
Frederick William Howay, LL.B., F.R.S.C.
For many years Judge Howay has served with great
acceptability as a member of the Senate of this University.
His contributions to the advancement of knowledge, particularly
in the field of historical research, have been numerous, and
have brought to him well-merited recognition by Governments
and learned societies.
On June 13th, 1933, a Special Congregation was convened for the purpose Of conferring the Honorary Degree of
LL.D. upon certain distinguished scientists who had contributed
to the success of the Fifth Pacific Science Congress which was
then in session in Vanoouver.  On this occasion Degrees were
conferred upon the following:- 7.
Charles Joseph Gravier, Agrege de 1'Universite, D.Sc,

(in absentia).
Decrease in Registration.
S2Z
During the year there was a marked decrease in
registration, particularly in the Faculty of Arts and Science,
This trend, which had been noticeable for two years, was most
pronounced during the 1932-1933 session when the decrease, as
shown by the Registrar's figures, was 250,
A number of factors contributed to this result. Of
these, the extension of the high school course to four years
was, perhaps, the most important.  Limitation of attendance,
while not in itself as formidable a barrier to admission as 8.
had been anticipated, was not without its effect.  The depression,
which by this time had bscome cumulative, made it impossible for
a considerable number to attend who otherwise would have done ao.
Then, too, the inability of many graduates to obtain employment
of any kind proved a powerful deterrent to prospective students
who thought of a University degree primarily in terms of increased
earning capacity.
Meeting of the Fifth Pacific Science Congress.
Apart from the regular work of the University, the most
important event of the year in which the members of the professorial
staff were active participants, was the meeting of the Fifth
Pacific Science Congress which was held in Victoria and Vancouver
during the lattor part of May and early June.  Practically all
the countries bordering on the Pacific basin wore represented by
one or more delegates, and European countries having dependencies
on the Pacific were also' represented.  During the sessions of the
Congress and of the post-congressional tour through the Province,
the delegates were the guests of tho Dominion Government. To the
many hundreds of scientific papers which wore presented, the staff
of the University of British Columbia contributed its full quota.
Alexander Stewart Monro Boquost.
By the terms of the will of the late Alexander Stewart
Monro, M.D., CM., F.A.C.S., F.R.C.S.(Can.), a bequest of the
value of approximately $80,000.00 will be made available to the
University on the decease of all other beneficiaries under the
will.  The income from this bequest is to be devoted to the
furthering of medical research.
For this benefaction the University is deeply grateful.
The people of this Province, through annual grants by the Legislature, havo been generous in their support of the University;
but, as yet, tho University has received relatively little
support from private individuals of moans who arc interested in
the advancement of higher education.  In this Province, private
support of state education has not become a tradition as it has in
tho older universities of Eastern Canada.  This generous action
on the part of Dr. Monro in indicative of tho growing personal
interest which friends of tho University arc taking in its welfare, Following tho acceptance of this bequest by the Board
of Governors, the immediate members of the family presented a
bronze tablet to the University in memory of Dr. Monro.  This
tablet, tho work of Mr. Charles Maroga, was placed in tho
Library and was unveiled by Chancellor R.E.McKechnie with
appropriate ceremonies.
Carnegie Corporation Grant.
In the fall of 1932 the Carnegie Corporation of New
York, acting upon a recommendation of the Corporation's advisory
group on Canadian college libraries, appropriated to the University the sum of fifteen thousand dollars for the purchase of
books and current periodicals for general undergraduate reading
in the Faculty of Arts and Science.  This generous gift, coming
as it did at a time when the requirements of the library wore
not being mot in as full measure as formerly, is having a most
stimulating effect upon the increasing number of students who
avail themselves of the facilities which the library affords.

REPORT OF THE DEAN OF THE FACULTY OF
ARTS AND SCIENCE.
Reductions in Staff and Courses.
The session 1932-33 opened with a considerable
reduction in staff and in the number of courses offered. The
details of those reductions need not be recorded in this report
as thoy may readily bo obtained elsewhere.  Suffice it to say
that each Department suffered the loss of some of its regular
members while almost all tho student assistants and yearly",
appointees were eliminated.  Several courses were dropped,
particularly those open to tho senior years, and as many as
possible of tho remaining courses wore put on in alternate
years.  The result was that no more than the minimum number
of courses was available for Honours in a single Department
and in certain cases not oven the minimum.  Arrangements
were mado, however, to count courses in an allied Department
when such deficiency occurred.
The loss of the student assistants and the giving of
courses in alternate years meant a decrease in the number of
sections in tho earlier years and an increase in the sizo of the
classes in all years.  Marking exorcises, laboratory books
and term essays - work which in the past had been done very
largely by student assistants and done very efficiently - had
to bo assumed by the members of tho staff.  Certain senior
men also who had not boon taking the earlier work were now
required to drop some of the more advanced courses and to take
First Year work.  Tho Doan is pleased to report that in
practically every Department this realignment of work was
undertaken without complaint or nearly so.
Tho M.A. work suffered very materially, particularly
in tho Departments where the courses available for graduates
are not open to undergraduates.
First Year vs. Senior Matriculation.
There will be no debate, in this paragraph, concerning tho relative merits of entering Second Year via Senior
Matriculation or First Year Arts and Science.  Suffice it to
say that candidates preparing for medicine should take Biology
in their First Year and that those entering Commerce should
have Economics. Biology is offered in only a few High Schools 16.
and Economics in none.  There are certain schools also, I
believe, which do not have adequate scientific equipment to
provide for the best individual experimental work in Physics
and Chemistry.  But these facts are not the determining-
factors in the decisions to enter the University or to stay
another year in the High School.  The more important fact
is the difference in expense - quite pronounced at the present
time.   Furthermore, High School Principals and Teachers
are very anxious, and quite naturally so, to retain as many
of their Junior Matriculants as possible and particularly those
who obtain good standing.  In fact one Principal frankly
declares that ho always keeps the best students for Senior
Matriculation and sends the others to the University. But
there should be no "strife" between the herdsmen of Abraham
and of Lot for they are brethren.  The "territory" should
bo divided but not in such a way that either (or both) should
eventually land in Sodom.  Consideration may very properly be
given to the duplication of First Year work in the University
and in the Vancouver High Schools,  Whatever changes, if any,
arc proposed it will have to bo borne in mind that only First
Year English, Mathematics, French and Latin can bo dropped by
the University as several Senior Matriculants desire First
Year courses in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, History and Gorman;
and also that the cost of giving the above First Year Courses
in English, Mathematics, French and Latin in the University
is usually very muoh less than the proportionate amount of
the foos paid for them.
Exclusions at Christmas.
A slight change was made at Christmas in the standing
to be obtained so that First and Seoond Year students would not
bo required to withdraw for tho Sooond Term.  For the last
eight or nine years all First and Second Year students who
obtained less than 40$ on tho total at Christmas had boon required to withdraw for the Sooond Term or to confine their work
to the lower year in case they wore taking some First and some
Second Year work together. Last year those who made under 40$
but over 30$ were allowed to continue but with the number of
units reduced from 15 to 9, while those who made under 30$ were
required to withdraw or to limit their work as formerly.
Tho 40-60 Rule.
In April 1933, the new "40-60 rule", that is a
minimum of 40$ in each subject and an average of 60$ on 15
units, came into effect.  The marks in the First Year wore
exceptionally poor and it was unfortunate that tho higher
standard should have been applied at that time.  There is
of course a relation between the difficulty of a paper and 17.
the passing mark.  In the long run practically tho same
number of candidates will pass on a paper with 75$ for the
passing mark as on a paper with a passing mark of 50$, for
examination papers eventually do conform to the oustom
obtaining with tho wind and shorn lambs. But tho 'run'
for the 40-60 rule hasn't boon 'long' enough yet. .Furthermore, the conditions in a great many of the homes, through
the cumulative effeots of the depression, are such that the
students-from these homes cannot devote their full time to
their studies nor can they concentrate upon study in what
time they do have because of worry.  In fact certain students
failed because they actually could not buy the text-books. A
reversion to the 40-50 rule was proposed in April but was not
accepted by Faculty partly because the new rule applied to
Senior Matriculation.  The results on Senior Matriculation
in July were likewise in the main, anything but satisfactory.
Until normal times return, or until wo accustom ourselves to
those times as normal if thoy are normal, a reversion to the
40<-50 rule may very properly be considered.  After all, tho
40-50 rule was in effect for all our graduates, and of their
achievements we are unashamed.  The primary reason for introducing the now rule was to limit the attendance.
Christmas Examinations for Third and Fourth Years.
A change was proposed, and partially tried, to
the effect that there should bo no Christmas examinations in
Third and Fourth Year subjects or that the examinations in
these subjects should be held in the last two lecture periods
of each course.  This arrangement would permit a week or ten
days more of lectures, it would allow the candidate to cover
the whole course before being examined, and, most important
of all, it would give a few days' holidays between Christmas
and New Year's for tho staff who had assumed heavier teaching
loads. The result of tho partial trial was anything but satisfactory. The other Faculties wished to hold examinations as
formerly and their schedule prevented a general extension of
thoperiod of lectures inasmuch as certain subjects, e.g. Biology,
Chemistry, Geology, Zoology are given to two or all three
Faculties.  Those who did attempt to extend the term of their
lectures found many absentees from their last lectures and
those students who were present had been devoting their time
and attention to the subjects upon which they had to write
examinations.  The students disliked having no Christmas
examinations as a greater emphasis had to be put upon the
First Term work in preparation for the April examinations. In
order to give any such proposal a fair and thorough trial it
will be necessary for all Departments and all Faculties to
work together. 18
Changes  in Staff.
isa,
This report docs not record changes in staff for
the period covered but reference must be. made to two changes
which havo occurred, viz., tho retirement of Professor
Henderson and tho resignation of Dr. Ashton.
Professor Henderson has been associated with the
University since its inception. Ho was one of the first
members of McGill University College, the institution which
was the forerunner of tho University.  At tho close of the
session under review he had reached the age of retirement
and was "elevated" to the rank of Emeritus Professor. Ho
had given long, faithful and efficient service to the
University and his gonial personality will bo greatly
missod in the more active work of the lecture room. Ho was
a model of kindly composure in the debates of the deliberative
bodies of the University - the Faculty, The Faculty Council
and the Senate.  He often dissipated brewing storms with
apt sallies of Scottish humor. At the close of the Congregation proceedings in May, members of the platform partly
adjourned to the Board Room to honour the occasion of his
retirement.  An illuminated address in Latin was read by
his oldest colleague on the staff, Professor L.F.Robertson,
a translation (not sight) was read by the Dean and a set
of pipes (not musical) was presented by his Honour, the
Lieutenant-Governor on behalf of the Faculty.
Dr. Ashton had also been a member of the staff since
the opening session of the University.  He had charge of the
Department of Modern Languages from that time until his resignation and made of it one of the strongest Moderns Departments in Canada. As a recognition of his scholastic attainments, his research and his officienoy as a teacher of French
he was honoured by two countries and one University with the
highest academic awards which each can bestow - viz., Fellow
of tho Royal Society of Canada, Chevalier do la Legion
d'Honneur (France), and Litt.D., Cambridge. It was with
general rogrot that his colleagues and his many honour
graduates learned of his resignation even although he was
offered and did accept a distinguished position in his alma
mater, Caius College, Cambridge. Not only did he contribute
much to the academic standing of the University but as chairman of the Committee on Coromonies for a great many years he
very largely determined the customs which should prevail when
the University is on parade. His sparkling wit added zost to
many a Faculty meeting and his brilliant robes added colour to
many a Congregation.

REPORT OF THE DEAN OF THE FACULTY OF
APPLIED SCIENCE.
1. Policy.
The general policy of the Faculty remains unchanged.
2. Changes in Courses.
There have been no major changes in courses. In
Civil Engineering slight changes in emphasis have been
made.  Owing to the leave of absence of Dr. Phemister,
Geology 14 (Crystallography) was not given. The absence
of R.W.Brock and Dr. H.W.Hill necessitated rearrangement of lectures and the employment of lecturers.
3. Publications by members of the Faoulty are listed under
"Publications".
4•  "Other Pertinent Matters"
(a) Number and Distribution of Students.
The effects of the depression continued to show
in the number and distribution of the students. An
increasing number took Senior Matriculation in place of
the recommended First Year Arts at the University.
As the following figures exhibit, Engineering undergraduates showed a slight decrease while the number of
graduate students showed a marked increase due to unemployment •

(b) Differences in the distribution of students is
overcrowding some departments. • The need for extra space
outlined in tho report for 1929-30 is emphasized.
(c) Student societies have been consolidated as branches
of tho Engineering Society. The students find them so beneficial that an effort is being made to adjust the timetable so as to give them more time for this form of education.
(d) The large number of graduate students, among whom
are experienced graduates, has enabled really first class
research work to bo done by students under the direction
of the staff, in almost all the Departments.  One paper in
Electrical Engineering is already being published in the
Journal of the British Institution of Electrical Engineers.
(c)  The cut in the Budget of the Faculty of Applied
Science has been met largely by curtailment in the expenditures
on supplies and equipment.  This of course cannot continue
indefinitely, as replacements and now equipment will be
necessary in the near future.  But since materials are useless without the staff to use thorn, when the alternative is
equipment or staff, the latter has to bo chosen.
(f)  Curtailment in the staffs, equipment and supplies
of tho Departments of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, which
for administrative purposes are in the Faculty of Arts cannot
fail to havo an effect upon tho instruction in these subjects,- 21,
subjects absolutely vital to Applied Science, since all tho
courses are based upon tho so fundamental subjects,. The
thanks of the Faculty of Applied Science.are tendered to
the Faculty of Arts and tho staffs of the above Departments
for thoir efforts to maintain tho standards and to minimize
the harmful effects of the enforced -curtailment.
(g) Mention should bo mado of tho very successful
"Engineering Open House" suggested and carried out by the
students of Applied Science*  It brought thousands of visitors
to the University, aroused thoir interest in it, and gave thorn
some impression of the importance of the University in the
development of tho Province and its resources.  Although held
at a season when tho students oould ill afford to take tho
time from thoir studios, thoy throw thornsolvos wholeheartedly
into this work in tho well founded hope that by so doing they
would bring benefit to thoir Alma Mater.
(h) Professor J.M.Turnbull acted as Dean throughout
tho Session, in addition to carrying on his regular duties
as Head of tho Department of Mining and Metallurgy.  I must
express my appreciation both of'his generosity in taking up
this heavy burden and of tho ablo manner in which the work
was conducted"

REPORT OF THE DEAN OF THE FACULTY OF
AGRICULTURE
The 1932-33 academic year was quite uneventful.
The Faculty carried on with its work under tho polioy
recorded in the last annual report.  Tho teaching or
lecture work was oarried on under the terms of the Calendar.
All land and outside equipment were under lease to private
parties throughout the year, but under the terms of the
lease tho equipment was available for class purposes at
stated times.
There were few outside lectures and only such
relationship was maintained with the Agricultural industry
as could be done without cost to the University.
REGISTRATION.
The undergraduate registration has not sufferod
by reason of tho general depression.  There has really been
a slight increase - from 53 to 59.
The Post-graduate registration fell from 22 to 12.
AN APPRECIATION.
It is with deep regret that I record tho untimely
death on August 29 of Professor Wilfrid Sadler, the first
Professor of Dairying and head of the Department.  He was
a respected oolloague, a toacher and a thinker.  Although
he has passed on, his contributions to dairy science, to
the fishing industry and to the pulp and paper industry will
remain as monuments to his energy and ability.
The foundations of the work in the Department of
Dairying wore well laid by him.
RESEARCH.
During tho year a co-operative arrangement was
made with the Empire itxrketing Board and the National Research
Council whereby the late Professor Sadler and Dr. Blythe
Eagles would complete and apply certain researches in relation
to the cheese industry of Canada.  The illness, and later the
passing of Professor Sadler made the completion of this work
impossible. Tho work was being done without cost to the
University. 23,
During the past year also, arrangements wore
completed between the University and the Dominion Department
of Agriculture, whereby certain investigations with regard
to wheat production will be carried out under the direction
of Dr. G. G. Moo-, Professor of Agronomy. , Dr. Moo, in turn,
is working in co-oporation with a special Provincial
committee on wheat.
This work is boing done without cost to the
University,
During the past year also, v/ith the aid of private
funds, rescarohes have been continued with regard to certain
special phases of Paralysis in Poultry. The University has
granted the use of a small laboratory and some animal houses
to tho committee in charge of the work.  All salaries and
other expenses in connection with the research are paid for
from private donations.
Respectfully submitted,
F. M. CLEMENT,
Dean. 24.
REPORT OF THE DEAN OF WOMEN.
Academic Record
Perhaps the most interesting faot to be recorded
in connection with the women students during the Academic
year closing August 31, 1933, is that seven Doctor of Philosophy degrees were won by women graduates of the University
of British Columbia.  One degree was taken in English in
the University of London, one in English in tho University of
Chicago, two in Frenoh in the Sorbonne, one in German in the
University of Munich, one in Zoology in the University of
California and one in Zoology in the University of Toronto.
The work of the office of the Dean of Women leaves little
time for the gathering of statistics but the statement may
be ventured that, considering the youth of the University,
the finanoial conditions whioh make graduate study to many
able students almost if not quite prohibitive, and other
circumstances, this record if it has been equalled, has not
been excelled in the history of Canadian Universities.
In this connection it may be mentioned also that
the Governor-General's medal for the head of the Graduating
Class of Arts was won last year by a woman as were also the
Historical Society Gold Medal and the Kiwanis Club Gold Medal,
and that they were won in the fields of Mathematics, History
and Commerce which, until recent years, have been considered
too difficult for the delicate feminine mind.  It may bo
mentioned also that the first name in order of merit in the
Pass List of the graduating class was that of a woman, that
the University Scholarship for General Proficiency in the
Third Year was won by a woman and that for the first time in
this University a Master's Degree in the Scienoe of Agriculture
was taken by a woman.
Reduced Attendance
To the reasons assigned for reduced attendance in
1931-32, such as the raising of fees and the introduction of
Senior Matriculation into the high schools, must be added this
last year the difficulty of securing part time employment. From
the early days of the University, a number of students have
been able to earn their entire fees, books and living expenses.
A larger number have earned those in part. In the summer of
1931, however, it was very difficult for any students, and
especially for the women, to obtain work. Even the opportunities to give "light services for room- and board" during the 25.
college term have been greatly curtailed.  Homes that could
not afford the former wage of a maid can now secure competent
women who will give full time work for $8 or $10 a month, some
for less. Other homes, on the other hand, cannot this year
afford to give even room and board to a college girl. .It may
bo noted hero that men students arc invading former "fields"
of the women, such, for example, as staying with children
in the evenings when the parents are out.  In at least one
instance a man student secured a position as "nursery governess."  I learn that his services were acceptable '.
Financial Assistanco
Assistance in the form of bursaries was obtained
from the Faculty Women's Club, tho University Women's Club,
the McGill Women's Club, tho University of Toronto Alumnae,
the Manitoba Alumnae Association, the Overseas Group of
University Women, the P.E.O.Sisterhood and from a number of
women whom it was possible to interest in individual cases
of emergency,  A former student now teaching in a neighboring town who had been helped through her course organized
a small group of high school students to gather vegetables
and fruit which wore being left in the fields. Some of hor
friends contributed eggs, honey, etc., etc, and a truck load
was sent down.  This was distributed as need was discovered.
From the University Women's Club and from other interested
women, clothing was received, some of which is still in
evidence on the campus this year.  Graduating students have
left behind books for distribution. The only necessity of
which there has been no lack is boarding houses and in this
matter the surplus causes almost as much difficulty as would
be created by a dearth.
Campus Activities
In the field of Athletics the fact that a Canadian
record was made by a woman student is not so important as that
a larger number of women than usual took part in games and in
athletic activities generally.  An attempt was made to follow
the new tendency in women's athletics away from Contests in
a League and toward "sport for sport's sake" and "a game for
every girl" within the University, and "Play Days" with neighboring Universities.  Scientific investigation has shown
that the nervous strain on women studonts of competition
between classes, departments etc., within the Univorsity is
not so great as that occasioned by competition between Universities or in a League.  It has also shown the value of women
coaches and of women's rules for women's games. 26.
It is unnecessary to point out the need for a department of physical education especially for the women. Under present
conditions with the gymnasium and tho playing field assigned
almost oxclusivcly to tho men and to tho teams, and in the absence
of a physical director, and with the domination of the Leagues
it is difficult to arouse interest in physical development among
the women students generally.  The progress during the past year,
however, is worthy of comment and has created a sentiment which
may be productive of good results in the future.  In this matter
it has been possible to arouse the interest of former women leaders
in athletics at the University.
Sororities made some progress during the year in the curbing of
their activities.  Here, too, the University is hampered by outside interference, which comes in this case from the headquarters
in the United States,  Gradually the fraternities on the campus
are achieving a certain degree of autonomy not usually granted
by their governing bodies to the local groups. Under a system
of student government a movement to curtail activities imposed
by tho National Committee, must come from the students themselves.
But they have shown themselves open to suggestions and are moving
in the right direction.
Loi
The attempt whioh has been made for some years to remove
the barrier between Fraternity and non-Fraternity women achieved
considerable success during the past year.  Through this effort
the feeling of inferiority felt almost inevitably by the women
who have not boon "bid" was to some extent broken down. On our
campus as on every other there are always a number of students,
both men and women, who because of their homo life, a natural
shyness or some other reason, do not make contacts easily.  In
times like these, tho home conditions of the present, and the
prospects for the students' own future are often very depressing.
This is particularly true in the case of women.  If the outlook
of the student is to be made healthy she must have the social
contacts which the normal life affords and which arc as essential
to hor success and happiness in life as are many of tho courses
for which she receives credit.
General
It need not be added, perhaps, that the usual help
to students in difficulty about the choioe of vocations, courses
to fit for the vocation chosen, refractory time tables, planning of
policies and of programs for student organizations, letters of
recommendation etc, etc; the usual addresses to student groups;
the usual number of addresses to organizations not on the campus,
among them the International Congress of Women, have been given.
Respectfully submitted

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF THE
SUMMER SESSION.
The Summer Session, ended August 19th last, has
been quite successful both from the aoademic, financial
and administrative points of view.  The attendance, notwithstanding prevailing economic conditions, has been highly
satisfactory.
The final attendance this year, after allowing for
withdrawals, was 362 as compared with 405 in 1932 and 441 in
1931.  The necessary quota (12 students) was reached, in all
subjects.
Attention might be drawn here to the statement in
my report of last year regarding a proposed "Special Summer
Session Fund" as well as to the section on "Preparatory Reading
Examinations."
Preparatory Reading Examinations.
Preparatory Reading Examinations have not been required
this year.  I am extremely doubtful as to whether these examinations fulfil any sound educational purpose or not.  In my
judgment, the University would be justified in rescinding, or
at least in indefinitely suspending, the regulation governing
examinations on preparatory readings.
Data Regarding Summer Session Students.
The following may prove of some interest:-
(a! Average Age of Summer Session Students;  28.9 years
(b; Ratio of Males to Females; 5-1
(c! Ratio of Married to Single Students:      4t7
(d) Average Numbor of Years - Teaching School: 8.1 years
This information may prove illuminating in comparisons
made between tho work accomplished, standards attained and so
forth, by Summer Session and Winter Session students.
No instructors from outside the Province were engaged
for the Summer Session, 1933. 28.
In conclusion the Director of Summer Session expresses
his appreciation of the cordial spirit of co-operation manifested by the Staff, Student Body and Administrative Officials
of the University in making the Summer Session of 1933 a
success.
Respectfully submitted,
G. M, WEIR,

Session, 1933.
REPORT OF THE EXTENSION COMMITTEE
I have the honour to present the following report of
extension work for the year beginning April 1st, 1932 and ending
March 31st, 1933.
The Committee arranged for 65 lectures (of which all but
throe wore delivered by members of the staff); 219 others wcro
reported, making a known total of 284.  In addition the Committee
provided 22 radio lectures (20 by members of the staff, one by
a member of Senate, and one by a member of tho student body), and
one other radio address was reported.  The total estimated attendance indicated for 263 of tho 284 public lectures was 32,157, an
average of just over 122.
Addresses wore given in twenty-one centres in the Province
Arranged by districts, these wore distributed as follows:-

REPORT OF THE ACTING-HEAD OF THE UNIVERSITY HEALTH SERVICE
I have the honour to present herewith:
1)  Report to me of the Medical Examiner,Dr.Harold
White, and
(2)  Report to me of the Public Health Nurse, Mrs.
C A. Lucas.
Since my report of May 4th, 1932, covers the general
subject rather fully, I would ask that that report be re-read and
the recommendations therein be considered as repeated this year.
I would call especial attention to the ninth paragraph
of Mrs. Lucas' report in which she outlines a certain amount of
slip in the forwarding of certificates to hor from the offices
of the Deans.  It would seem that since this question has boon
ruled upon to the satisfaction of all concerned, and that we
have received about throe-fourths of the certificates promptly,
it should bo no great matter to secure the other ono-fourth
promptly also.
Rospeotfully submitted,
H. W. HILL,
Acting-Head University
Health Service.
REPORT OF THE MEDICAL EXAMINER OF STUDENTS.
I beg to submit the annual report upon tho physical
examination of students of tho First Year and those of other years
who entered the University for the first time during this academic
year.
The number of students examined was 188 less than that of
the preceding year.
A now system of acquainting tho Health Service of physical
defects in tho students was put into operation this year. Each 30.
evening on returning by mail the list showing the names of
students examined that day, a note of the physioal defects
was made opposite the name of the student so that tho Health
Service received the information on tho following day, and
the follow-up work was started immediately.  This resulted in
more efficient health work.
In most cases the student's disabilities wore discussed
with him and advice given regarding tho obtaining of necessary
treatment.  In a few cases in which it was considered moro
desirable the information was given to the parent by letter or
telephone.
The health of the students in general was found to be
very good.
Tho average height, weight and chest expansion of the
men is slightly less, and those of the women slightly greater
than those of the preceding year.
Owing no doubt to the ocourrenee of a limited epidemic
of hemorrhagic smallpox during the opening months of 1932, a
much larger percentage of students was found to have been vaccinated, only a small proportion being unprotected against smallpox.
Much time was saved this year as well as last, by giving
all of the new students a general talk on health matters on the
opening day of the session.  It was gratifying to note that
many had remembered and acted upon the suggestions made by me
at that time, regarding healthful ways of living, especially in
the matter of regular outdoor exercise.
On account of illness in her family Dr. Monica Saunders
was unable to complete the examination of the women, but Dr.
Isabel Bay ably carried the work to completion.
Through the kindess of the Superintendent of the Vancouver
General Hospital, the Out-patient Department was once more made
available for this work.
Respectfully submitted,
Harold White,
Medical Examiner of
Students. 31.
REPORT OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH NURSE.
I have the honour to present my sixth annual report
as part-time public health nurse of the University of British
Columbia.
We have to report with sincere regret the death of
three students.
Total persons receiving professional attention numbered
1,476. The total number of services, including First Aid,vaccination and health advice, was 1,639. Time lost to students-1419
days.
Consultations with, and reports sent to, the Deans and
Professors numbered 145.
Consultations with parents and physicians numbered 143.
One hundred and twenty-nine (129} written reports were received
from physicians and dentists. Twenty-three (23) sick and injured
students were transported home.  This group lost 375 days.
One hundred and sixty (160) students and members of tho
Faculty and Staff reported communicable diseases. Of these, 96
were suffering from the effects of tho common cold, 55 from
influenza, 1 student had ohickenpox, and one student had mumps.
There wore 21 skin infections; of those 17 had contracted
"athlete's foot' disease and 4 were suffering from scabies or
impetigo. This group lost 1,044 days.
Approximately 126 miles were travelled in the interest
of sick and injured students.
An arrangement was made some time ago with the offices
of tho Deans, by which all medical certificates relating to the
absence of students during term are submitted to the University
Health Service as soon,as received. This has been of great use
in the three-quarters of the total certificates which were
promptly thus forwarded. We hope still further value from this
arrangement as the method of prompt forwarding improves.  This,
besides being the recognized scientific method of checking
epidemics, is also a means of checking time lost.
In order that we may have some index of the effectiveness
of the preventive work carried on by the University Health Service
and of the need for future work along certain lines, it is necessary 32,
to keep an accurate record of every day lost through sickness.
In undertaking this work through the University we are not
unmindful of the fact that the resulting figures may be of
some service to scientific Public Health workers.
Respectfully submitted,
Celia A. Lucas,
Public Health Nurse. 33

by the results attained at the examinations.
Training (General)
Weekly Corps parades were held on Wednesday evenings from 7.30
to 10.15 p.m. at the Beatty Street Armouries. This was possible
through the kindness of Lt.Col. G.H.Whyte M.C, V.D., O.G. Beatty
Street Armouries.
This training was augmented by lectures held at the University
from 12 to 1 p.m. on Thursdays.
Musketry
Members of the Corps carried out the prescribed course of
Musketry on the Blair Range during October and November. 34.
On the 30th October at Blair Range the Inter University Service
Rifle Competition was fired over ranges 200-500-600 yds. Weather
conditions were fair.  The high score was recorded by Cadet Sgt.
D.S.Worthington with a score of 102 out of a possible 105, thus
winning the Gen. Leckie Challenge Shield for the year.

General Comments
The general work of the Corps progressed well during the year.
There was some dimunition in strength from 101 to 68„    However
the percentage of attendance and interest shown was greater than
at any other time during my command.  The falling off in numbers 35.
may be accounted for by the smaller Freshman class due to Senior
Matriculation being given in High Schools.
The number studying for Certificates was greater than before
and the results were of the usual high standard* The thanks of
the Corps are again tendered to Capt. E.M.McErayne M.C. and
Q.M.S.I.  A.A.Smith for their unfailing interest in the Corps
and their excellent instructional efforts.
All ranks again donated all their pay and allowances to Corp3
funds.
The yearly audit of funds was carried out by a Board appointed
for the purpose and all books and accounts were found correct.
Tho Ordnance inspection was satisfactory.
The interest and the efficiency in musketry wero greatly enhanced
by the completion of the miniature Rifle Range in the basement of
tho Arts Bldg.  This was constructed at no expense to tho University or the public, the total cost (approx* $1000) being paid from
Corps funds.
The matter of a distinctive uniform for G.O.T.C. has boon approved
by N.D.Hq. but an issue has not yet been received by this unit.
McGill and Laval have received thoir issue and as funds become available further issues will be made. It is not expeotod that this will
oceur this year.
Tho number of cadets who are taking commissions in the Militia
is steadily increasing and the comments of Commanding officers on
ox-cadets in their units are highly favorable in every ease.
There wore no breaches of discipline of any kind during the
year.
The Officer Commanding wishes to record his appreciation of
the assistance and co-oporation afforded him by the Chancellor,
the President, the Board of Governors, the Committee on Military
Education, the D.O.C.M.D. No.. 11 and Staff and to O.C.'s 23 Inf.
Bde. 15th Field Bde. and B.C. Rog-t. (D.C.O.R.).
Respectfully submitted,
H.F.G.Letson
Officer Commanding. 36.
