UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH
COLUMBIA, Vancouver 8,
B.C., is a provincial, coeducational university of 5,800 students.
Norman A. M. MacKenzie,
President.
FEBRUARY, 1955
Ten Million Promised For University Expansion

, ^ a«.j?..«M?\f*.
Plans have been completed for the first $150,000 unit of Vancouver Rotary's
International House, the project chosen to mark the golden anniversary
of the -service club.   Need for a permanent International House has long
.   been felt at the University which draws students from all over the world.
Alumni Kick Off 1955 Campaign
for University Development Fund
First week of the 19SS University
Development Fund drive has
brought in $6,544.37 from Alumni
and "Friends of the -University" in
Australia, British Guiana, the United
Kingdom, France, the Persian Gulf,
West Indies, United States and
Canada.
Major objects of this, year's
"United Appeal" are scholarships,
;. student residences and the Presi-
dent's^und, a sum of unallocated
money used to meet a variety of
urgent needs. At least thirty more
degree group projects are also cov-
.ered by the fund.
Although no target amount has
been specified by Development
"""Ftmd directors, they are hoping to
raise $75,000. Last year's total was
$50,000—$23,000 from alumni and
the balance from business concerns
and "Friends."
Alumni Secretary Art Sager re-
• ports that the Association is hop-
•ing to increase the number of
company scholarships sponsored by
local firms benefitting directly and
indirectly from University services.
Ten regional scholarships for first-
t   year students are now awarded by
FtWI'>'EM9Nft'aifa4"
than  9#MU a1?s|"   alumni
etng sought ByTJa ry Sleigh
p^ft1'S^necon*nrittee,as
part of the drive to reorganize
alumni records and mailing lists.
The Association will soon install a
McBee Keysort Card System, the
method of record-checking now in
use at many major Canadian and
U. S. universities. .
Membership promotion and reactivation of alumni branches are
also soon to be undertaken by
Thunderbird alumni. Canada now
has 13 UBC alumni branches, the
U. S. has four, and the United'
Kigdom, one. New groups may be
established in New York, Jamaica
and   other   foreign   countries.
University Club
C. H. Wills '49 heads the University Club committee, which
plans to establish a downtown
centre for graduates, professional
and business men interested in the
'University. A survey to determine
local interest will be conducted,
and members are hoping for a site
decision soon.
The Alumni Association has
raised nearly $1,700 for the "Rebuild the Brock" fund with a $1
appeal to graduates. More than one
thousand alums responded. The
Association has approved the second swimming pool plan and the
Rotary International House Project. Members have been active on
committees for both projects.
The University of British Columbia begins a new era of expansion
this year as it launches a $10,000,000
ten-year     building     program     an-
■ nounced by Lt.-Gov Clarence E.
Wallace U- the speech from the
throne at the legislature opening.
Experts predict that university enrollment  will  increase  from  nearly
'6,000 to 10,000 students by 1965.
University architects will be asked
to begin plans immediately for a
new Arts Building, a $2,000,000
Medical Sciences Building and $2,-
,000,000 student residences. Tentative sites have been discussed, but
University President Norman A. M.
MacKenzie said Tuesday that another study of possible locations
may be necessary. The Arts Building may be built in the vicinity of
the  present  Women's   Gymnasium.
Much-needed expansions of essential services, such as power, heat,
streets and sewers will also be provided by the capital grant, Dr. MacKenzie revealed. Expansion of
library facilities and a new wing for
the Biological Sciences Building
may also be considered.
University authorities have asked
the government for expansion of
campus area from 548 to 1000 acres
in order to meet future needs.
Development of the University
•Endowment Lands into a modern,
high class residential property with
a shopping centre similar to Park
Royal, may also be in the offing, the
throne speech hinted. The Endowment Lands were set aside years ago
to provide trust fund principal for
perpetual endowment of the University.
Data   from  an  extensive  survey
conducted  recently  by  an  eastern
town planning firm will be used in
the master plan developed by the
Provincial Lands Department.
The University campus is now in
the midst of nearly 2000 undeveloped acres, running from 41st and
Marine, North to 16th, to Blanca
and back to Marine Drive.
Financing of a survey preliminary
to recommendations regarding possible establishment of a Faculty of
Dentistry at the University was also
indicated in the throne speech.
Plans to construct a medical
building at Vancouver General Hospital and a Home Management
House and International House
have already been announced by the
University.
Harris Wins Prize
A forestry student'has given the
University its seventh award in as
many years in the Western Forestry
essay contest, results of which were
announced recently.
Peter Harris, a senior and also
one of the top track and field competitors on campus, won second
prize in the annual essay contest
with a paper based on his summer
research work in Vernon, B.C.
The University, competing against
six western U.S. colleges, has won
four firsts and three seconds in the
past seven years.
Harris -earned a three-week trip
to the annual forestry conference in
San Francisco as part of his award.
From The President . .
One  of the most difficult problems in an institution as large and
Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie
as widely dispersed as the University
of British Columbia is that of bringing to .the attention of its members
the interesting events that occur in
its many Faculties and Departments,
and as part of the extramural programme.
"UBC REPORTS" is an attempt
to do this.
I hope that you find it interesting
and useful. I hope, too, that, if you
have any suggestions about it, you
will write or felephone the Information Office.
In the meantime, I would like to
express my thanks to Mrs\ Dorothy
Coryell and Miss Nancy West for
undertaking this venture, and to
wish them every success.

QUOTES OF THE MONTH
Know Your University:
Busy Testing And Counselling Centre
Points Way For University Freshmen
Dr.. Norman A. M. MacKenzie,
speaking to the Victoria Chamber
of Commerce:
"In this divided world we may not
be training as many of our young
people at the top level as we should,
or as our competitors ares
"If the decision of the future defends on counting heads, those of
us in the west would have .little
hope. It follows, then, if there are
fewer* of us, each of us must count
for^ jialf a dozen. We must be
trained, educated and developed to
the maximum of our capacities."
Dean Geoffrey C. Andrew, Deputy
to the President, and Dr. Barnett
Savery, Department of Philosophy
and Psychology, in a United Nation's Club debate on whether or
not "American Democracy is Non-
Exportable".
Said Dr. Savery: "American
democracy should not be called a
democracy, but a system of checks
and balances"^
Librarian Reports
On Current Needs
The University library acquired
more volumes in 1954 than ever in
its 30-year history, but is still inadequate to meet needs of students
and faculty, according to a year-
end report.
. Librarian Neal Harlow notes
addition of 22,000 books, of which
I23OO were bound volumes of
scholarship and scientific journals.
In a decade, however, the University's full-time faculty has increased 300% and the number of
new courses has increased 250%.
Fifteen new subject fields have
been added to the curriculum, and
Ph.D. studies have introduced 12
new fields. The Library has kept
pace in service, but runs a "poor
third" to Toronto and McGill in the
richness of book resources, Harlow stated.
The University Library is currently rated No. 1 in Canada in
many aspects of its service, and
No. 2 in the number of students
handled each year.
Among recent donors were H. R.
MacMillan (Forestry and Canadian
History), Leon J. and Walter
Kderner (Slavonic Studies, Law,
Fine Arts), B. C. fishing industry
(Institute of Fisheries collection),
B, C. Forest Products Ltd. International Studies, Vancouver
Chinese and Italian communities
(Oriental Studies and Italian Literature). The University Development Fund continued its vital support and grants were received from
the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations for additions in Slavonic
Studies, French Canadiana and
anthropology.
This' form of government is applicable only in the U.S., he said,
seeing "no hope whatsoever for its
success in the Far East for instance".
Said Dean Andrew: "American
democracy is a very exportable commodity—it is unequalled anywhere
in the world in its social quality."   »
He admitted the economic and
political differences might be harder
to reconcile with a foreign situation,
but felt this drawback was overshadowed by the social side of the
American democracy.
m
Bus Phillips, athletic director at
the University, after one awed look
at the record-breaking crowd attending Harlem Globe-Trotters' exhibition basketball game at the War
Memorial Gym:
"We're balancing the athletic budget right now!"
Prof. Frederick H. Soward, Director of International Studies, speaking to Vancouver Rotary International on "Looking Backward on
1954:
"We need clarity and judgment
from our leaders, consistency of
purpose in defending freedom, and
we must observe comparisons with
less fortunate peoples."
A nondescript cluster of olive-
green huts on the far corner of the
campus is lit by rays of hope, some
University students will tell you.
It's here that Col. John McLean
his expanded the post-war Veterans' Bureau into the hunmming hive
of activity now called the Department of Personnel and Student
Services. Under this series of
shingle roofs are such activities as
counselling, testing and research;
veterans' assistance; reading and
special English help; student placement and headquarters for employed
staff, personnel.
The entering freshman first hears
of McLean & Co. right after his
graduation from high school. He
receives a letter inviting him to participate in an aptitude testing program which will gauge his general
academic ability, general mathematical achievement, English placement and general interests. At least
95 per cent of these incoming freshmen respond.
Vancouver students report to the
University Auditorium in June for
four hours of intensive pencil work.
Their out-of-town classmates are
tested in the fall. While no compulsion is applied to transfer or advanced students, testing and counselling facilities are always available
to them.
The students who duck the testing and counselling services, one
assistant pointed out, are usually
those with doubtful academic records who may be afraid of discovering the awful truth.
The tests selected and developed
by Col. McLean and his staff, A. F.
Shirran, Al Cox and Miss Onesia
Crompton, have been built into what
is considered one of the leading university testing programs in Canada.
A special battery of tests for first-
year Applied Science students is
now under study at' the request of
Dean Henry F. Gunning.
Students are encouraged to discuss their test results with the staff
of counselors, and nearly 300 of the
1152 tested last year reported for
such discussions. Programs, study
habits and orientation come up for
survey in these informal sessions,
and students are encouraged to return for further chats when the
need arises.
Arts majors who fail their Christmas examinations receive a New
Year card from the counselling office
and an invitation to drop in for help
in developing a new set of resolutions. Results of these post-Christmas counselling sessions have been
remarkable—nearly 45 per cent of
the counselled students show marked
improvement.
In time left over from shouldering
the cares of Bruce and Betty Co-ed,
staff members conduct research on
failure rates for counselled v. non-
counselled students, urban v. rural
freshmen, recommended v. non-
recommended students, and outside
activities, health problems, living
accommodation, lectures missed and
study hours in relation to failure.
The results? They're still coming
in, day by day, on student feet.
Counsellors are sure that the active,
interested student is usually the
most successful and that there's
nothing like going to lectures to
help you with your studies.
Geography Text
Comes Off Press
A revised text ''The Geography of
British Columbia," work of two
faculty members at the University
of British Columbia, is now available to B.C. high school students.     -
Professor J. Lewis Robinson,
chairman of the Division of Geology,
and Professor John Chapman,
assistant professor in the department of Geology and Geography,
prepared the new manuscript.- A
group of students from the Geography department contributed -35—
maps.
The text has been published and
will be used as a geography elective course for grade 10 students.
Copies are available at the Department of Education in Victoria.
A counsellor never attempts to direct « student, but he often helps the
student to find his own way. A. F. Shirran discusses aptitude' test results
with a University freshman who has. taken advantage of the fine testing
and counselling services available on the University  of  B.C.  campus.
Grad Honored
An honors graduate in forestry
engineering, 24-year-old Selwyn
Fox of Vernon, has been awarded
the $1,250 Canadian Lumberman's
Association Timber Research fel-^
lowship for 1954.
Fox is currently at the University
of Toronto, working for a master's
degree in applied science. -w<>

Mail call is always a welcome break for students in the eighth annual
Dominion-Provincial Youth Training School now in session on the campus.
School secretary Barbara Shier, left, distributes the latest word from home
to Jim Selfe, Victoria, and Bert Prince, Prince Rupert, both of whom are
enrolled in the eight-week course.
Current Youth Training School
Draws Students From Distant Spots
A 20-year-old German youth who
came to Canada on his own four
months ago, is on campus today,
taking classes with 70 young people
from rural communities throughout
the province.
Otto Wehner was working on a
fruit farm at Osoyoos when he
heard about the University's Annual Youth Training School for
young people from rural areas. He
enrolled in the eight-week course
when it opened Jan. 10, and is now
taking courses in farm management,
motor mechanics, -carpentry, horticulture, dairying, public speaking,
physical education, blacksmithing,
bee-keeping, plumbing, welding and
poultry husbandry.
Young people from 16-30 have
come from farm communities all
over B.C. to attend the annual
course. Another "new citizen" is
25-year old Anfinn Simonsen, who
came to Canada two years ago
from Norway. He is currently
living in North Vancouver.
For many of the 71 students, this
is the first glimpse of life on a
large university campus. They live
in Youth Training- School dormitories near Acadia Camp, with a
dining hall, recreation centre, shops
and lecture rooms nearby.
, Students pay only $10 a month
toward their room and board while
they receive expert instruction in
a variety of practical subjects.
Travel expenses over $10 are also
refunded by the government.
There are now nearly 800 Youth
Training School graduates throughout British Columbia—all of them
taking leading roles in their communities. Co-sponsors of the course
are the University and both dominion an3 provincial Departments of
Labor  and Education.

Home Ec Girls
Try Diet Study
By NANCY WEST
The slimmest and trimmest girls
oh the University of British Columbia campus may well be students in
the School of Home Economics—if
a new eight-week diet project has
the desired results.
A group of *5 overweight coeds
has started a 1500-calorie diet under
supervision of Home Ec instructor,
Miss Marion Seymour. Five other
students are keeping charts on their
slimming girl friends.
Before-and after pictures will be
added to the file folder on this Home
Ec experiment, and when all results
are in, the girls will compile a research-paper on the project.
The diet project is one of 13 laboratory schemes initiated by pert,
pretty Miss Seymour in her Home
Economic*' 303 course. Her eJass of
50^irls has undertaken minor research work in every phase of nutrition.
A group of nine students is working under Dr. A. J. Wood in the
Animal Husbandry department,
studying the effects of inadequate
feeding on rats. This class will con- .
duct eight weeks* of research in the
Animal Science Laboratory.
Miss Seymour has launched a
third lab project to determine stu- -
dents* likes and dislikes in vegetables. A corps of girls keep a check
in the dining-room Acadia Camp,
clocking each plate of food served,
then rechecking the empty plates on
their return.
"We have two reasons for conducting these lab classes," Miss
Seymour said. "We want students
to understand the importance nutrition plays in our daily life, and we
would also like them to become
thoroughly familiar with the scientific method of research.
Miss Seymour is on her second
year of teaching at the University.
A graduate of the University of
Manitoba, she took her. M.S. and a
dietetic interneship at' Ohio State
University.
To Discuss Art
Dr. Ernst Scheyer of Wayne
University, former curator of the
Cologne Museum in Germany, will
speak on "The Horror Vaccui Principle in the' Carvings of the Pacific"
at noon, Feb. 15 on the campus.
Dr. Scheyer is the author of several
books and. will be traveling- to
Eugene, Oreg., to deliver the principal address at the Northwest
Sculptors' Conference.

Research Grant
New equipment for use in advanced research, including work on
the chemical origins of cancer, has
been purchased by the Department
of Chemistry at the University.
The equipment, first of its kind in
Canada, is known as a nuclear resonance spectrometer. A $33,400
grant from the Research Council of
Canada has made the purchase
possible.
The spectrometer has been or- 4
dered and should be delivered ]
within three months,. according to
Dr. Cyril Reid, Associate Professor
of Chemistry. Only a few similar
pieces of equipment exist, such as
those used at Stanford and Illinois, "Jjj
Dr. Reid said the spectrometer
permits scientists to investigate
cl emical structure in solution where
older x-ray methods are powerless.
He said the equipment should increase the scope of advanced gradu-    -
ate work at UBC and should'attract ~f
more    doctoral   and   post-doctoral
students to the campus.
At Dietetic Meet 1
Miss Charlotte Black, Director of
Home Economics, and Miss Mary
Holder, Associate Professor, participated in the Jan. 22 and 23 conference of the Canadian Dietetic
