Advance gift canvassers
open development campaign
More than 300 canvassers for the UBC Development Fund are now
contacting corporations and special donors in the campaign which
aims to raise $5 million for capital development at the University.
The drive will get into high gear early in January when more than
1000 canvassers will begin contacting
alumni and parents on a national basis.
Speakers from campaign headquarters
will tour the province in the coming
weeks describing the campaign and
outlining the needs of the University.
A number of factors have contributed to the spirit of optimism which
pervades campaign headquarters on
the 17th floor of the B.C. Electric
building, according to Mr. Aubrey
Roberts, assistant to the President and
director of the Development Fund.
First is the leadership given by
many of British Columbia's top executives who have not merely lent
their names to the campaign but have
given freely of their time and effort
in laying the groundwork for the
drive.
"The second factor," says Mr. Roberts, "is Premier Bennett's decision to
increase the ceiling on matching grants
from $5 million to $7.5 million at the
request of the campaign committee."
Another factor is the gift by retired New Westminster lumberman J.
G. Robson of $250,000 earmarked for
men's residences at UBC.
"We are also encouraged by the
wonderful example set by students in
assessing themselves $5 annually over
the next three years," Mr. Roberts
added.
He said that the student contribution of $150,000, together with Mr.
Robson's gift, when matched by the
province and the Canada Council,
would yield $1,200,000.
The first block of student residences,
to accommodate 400 students, will be
constructed early in 1958. It will have
four units housing 100 students each
with central lounge, library and dining facilities. Three other such blocks
are planned in the overall development
of the campus.
Queen's head
addresses fall
congregation
The system of private enterprise
may collapse unless our society understands that its justification lies in its
facility for the decentralization of decisions, Dr. W. A. Macintosh, principal of Queen's University told members of the graduating class at Fall
Congregation, Oct. 25.
Dr. Macintosh, who received an
honorary degree at the ceremonies,
went on to say that so far free enterprise had justified itself because it
allowed large organizations to be
combined with decentralization of
decisions in ways that make freedom
compatible with order.
POSES QUESTION
Dr. Macintosh posed the question
"What is the function of a faculty of
commerce and business administration?"
He said the faculty should take a
lofty view of its functions and should
concern itself not only with the established disciplines but with generating an alertness of mind, capacity for
growth, awareness of the human implications of business decisions and
organizations in men and women who
have a high view of their calling.
Dr. Macintosh spoke to more than
350 students who received degrees
and diplomas from UBC's newly-installed Chancellor Dr. A. E. "Dal"
Grauer.
As one of the first parts of congre-     	
gation ceremonies, Chancellor Emeritus the Hon. Eric W. Hamber asked      hqm      ■   .
Dr. Grauer to take the oath of office.     \J 0\^   uNVe   TODS
FINANCIAL NEEDS ,
In his remarks following his instal-     Red    Feather   QUOtO
lation, Dr. Grauer outlined the finan- ■
cial needs of the University and said
the excitement and adventure of learning could best take place if facilities
exist to provide for the convenient intercommunication of ideas.
He added: "We cannot expect a
flowering of the spirit, nor indeed a
flowering of commerce and industry,
if we plan too niggardly, too little, or
too late."
University gets
new 'phone system
The University has a new telephone
system and a new number — ALma
4600.
All telephones within the University now have local numbers and the
system also provides direct lines to
the Alma exchange.
UBC's contribution to the 1957
Community Chest campaign amounted
to $8,198.99. This figure exceeds the
quota set for the University by
$709.19, UBC accountant William
White announced recently.
Members of the University staff
contributed $7,095.64 and the University employees union gave $50 over
and above what was contributed by
individual members.
A whirlwind noon hour campaign
by students from the faculty of commerce and business administration
netted $1000 and contributions from
coin boxes and other sources amounted
to $53.35.
C. R. Brookbank, supervisor of the
B.C. Electric training department and
district chairman for the Red Feather

EDITORIAL
Are we aware of the fate
which may overtake us ?
The huge organizational task of the UBC Development Fund is now
almost complete. The first 300 canvassers, who will contact corporations and special personal donors, have begun making their calls to
explain the needs of the University and set forth the reasons why UBC
must make an apeal to industry, the University family and the general
public.
The stakes in the campaign are much higher than the monetary
objectives would suggest. The success or failure of the campaign will,
in the words of President N. A. M. MacKenzie, "give some indication
of whether we are aware of the kind of world we live in, of the problems that concern us, of the imminent and appalling fate that may
overtake us."
Our University is the first government-supported institution of
higher learning in Canada which has made such an appeal. No one
who has attended UBC in the past 12 years and endured lectures in
converted army huts and coped with overcrowded conditions in laboratories can fail to be aware of the pressing need for more accommodation.
No University Has Done So Much
Despite all this, no University has done so much with such inadequate and limited facilities as has the University of British Columbia.
Our condition is a legacy from the past—the result of two wars and a
depression. But as the President also pointed out when he spoke to
Great Trekkers at their annual banquet recently there is no use crying
over spilled milk or wondering about the errors and the blames to be
attached in the past.
Our task, he said, is to the present and the future and it is our duty
and responsibility to see to it that UBC and other universities are provided with the funds comensurate with their needs and relative to those
made available in other fields of activity, both by governments and by
private industry.
In his speech to the Trekkers and in his recently-issued annual report the President drew attention to some of the problems which are
parallel to securing increased financial support from industry and the
public. We must have increased operating revenues, "so that we may
get and keep as teachers and administrators and scholars working in
research, the very best that there are, and pay them adequately and
provide them with facilities with which they can carry on this necessary
work."
Other Urgent Needs
There is an urgent need also, the President pointed out, for trained
staff to direct and teach the ever-increasing number of men and women
who will be students at UBC in the next ten years. And we badly need
a national system of scholarships and bursaries to provide earlier
assistance to the best, in the sense of the most intellectual and able of
the young men and women who will be, or should be, our students.
Most important of all perhaps, is the necessity for a change in the
attitude and emphasis within our society toward work, toward luxury,
toward entertainment and soft living, which, as President MacKenzie
points out, are not necessarily evil in themselves when enjoyed in
moderation. But he added, "we on this continent and in our society,
have tended too much to make these our gods, our goals, our ambitions, and to set them in high places and worship them."
If the University is to deal with the problems outlined by Dr. MacKenzie with intelligence and determination, the financial support of
all sections of society is necessary. With such support, and once again
we quote from Dr. MacKenzie's address to the Great Trekkers, "our
survival and continued development in terms of opportunities and expanding areas of human life will be deserved and probable."
enrolment tripled, but. . .
Standards kept high
at Victoria College
By DR. GWLADYS DOWNES
Assistant Professor of French, Victoria College
Victoria College today is so different from the Victoria College
I attended many years ago that there are times when I look back
in amazement at the changes which have have taken place. Craig-
darroch Castle is now used as offices by the Greater Victoria School
Board, and the College occupies the buildings at Mount Tolrnie
formerly used by the Provincial Normal School. There are nearly
three times the number of students. There is a counselling service.
There is an extensive library, with an Art collection.
College Began In Castle
But one aspect of college life remains the same. The freshmen still
find that high standards of work are
demanded of them, and it is these
standards, imposed on the relatively
small second-year group by a doggedly
persistent faculty, which have started
so many honour students, Rhodes
Scholars, and winners of the Governor-General's medal, on their way to
success at UBC.
The history of the college goes back
to 1903 when the "McGill University
College of British Columbia, situated
at Victoria" was formally opened by
the School Board. In 1907 this college, offering the first two years of
Arts, became part of the McGill University College of British Columbia in
Vancouver. Both these institutions
ceased to exist in 1915 with the creation of the University of British Columbia.
In 1920, after the return of the
veterans of the First World War, the
lack of an institution of higher learning in Victoria was felt acutely, and
the School Board organized what has
been, since that date, Victoria College. Craigdarroch Castle was purchased the next year, and there the
College remained until after the Second World War, when the enrolment
rose to the point where a new building
had to be found.
The College moved to the Provincial Normal School buildings in 1946,
and when the Normal School became
part of the College of Education ten
years later, the problems of amalgamation were solved with very little
difficulty, since both faculties and both
student groups were already sharing
the buildings.
Great Change In 1956
The great change for Victoria College in 1956 was its formal establishment as a provincial institution of
higher learning under an act passed by
the Provincial Legislature. It had
been governed for some years by a
council consisting of representatives
from UBC, the School Board, and the
town. The membership of this council
was extended in 1956, and it is now
the governing body of the College.
What of Victoria College today?
The student enrolment is now 672, of
which 265 are members of the College of Education. There are 460
freshmen students and 212 in second
year. Of the latter group, 104 are in
Arts. An active Students' Council, assisted by faculty advisors, is entirely
responsible for student affairs, including a full programme of athletics. The
number of faculty members, like that
of the students, is constantly rising;
at the moment, counting part-time instructors, there are nearly 50 people.
The courses offered at the College
parallel   those  offered   at   UBC,  al
though the departments do not always
use the same texts. They now include
the first two years preparatory to a
degree in Arts, Education, Science,
Commerce, Law, Medicine, Dentistry;
one year preparatory to Agriculture,
Architecture, Engineering, Home Economics, Nursing, Pharmacy, Forestry
and Physical Education.
The College's role in the community
is not, however, limited to the provision of courses for students on graduation from High School. In the fall of
1948, it extended its facilities to the
adults of the community by offering
evening courses. At first, only courses
carrying University credit were given.
Later, non-credit ones were added. The
response to both was encouraging, and
the Evening Division is now an established reality. Over 6000 people have
attended courses during the last nine
years (5,841 in non-credit, 680 in
credit); the numbers, both of courses
and students, are continually increasing.
Summer Session Courses Offered
Last year, when the Department of
Education Summer School for teachers was discontinued, Victoria College
decided, rather tentatively, to start a
Summer Session which would offer
credit courses in Arts and Education,
as well as a few non-credit ones similar to those in the Evening Division.
The registration was twice as high as
the administration expected — nearly
700 students. One instructor, who had
prepared a seminar course for a group
of, possibly 25 people, found himself
faced with 90. So the Victoria College
Summer Session will, presumably, go
on growing with the growing population of the area.
What the future of the College is
no one can say exactly. One thing is,
however, certain. There will be more
and more students each year, and out
of the group will come, in increasing
numbers, many of UBC's scholarship
students in the upper years. The record in the past speaks for itself and
there is no reason to doubt that, academically, the future will be as satisfactory. December, 1957
U.B.C.   REPORTS
Zoology professor builds
unique embryo collection
A tiny vertebrate which is so rare that it must be borrowed from
Utrecht, Holland, will soon arrive at UBC.
The sea creature, called a Lancelet, is for a unique collection of
       embryos  being   made   by   Dr.   Peter
Ford, professor in the department of
Zoology.
The Lancelet, which is one of the
few species not represented in Dr.
Ford's collection, is of the utmost
value in the study of evolution because
it is near the line from which the vertebrates and thus man arose.
"By virtue of Vancouver's situation
on Puget Sound, which has a very
rich and unique fauna, we will soon
have an embryology collection of just
about every type," Dr. Ford says.
Before coming to UBC in 1949, Dr.
Ford taught at the University of London. As a student he was a pupil of
two of the world's most eminent em-
bryologists, the late lames Peter Hill,
and Sir Gavin de Beer, director of the
British Museum of Natural History.
In addition to teaching at UBC and
maintaining the embryo collection,
Dr. Ford is engaged in four research
projects on what he calls the "odd
stomachs" of the beaver, ant eater,
baby salmon and hermaphrodite steel-
head trout.

Participating in panel discussions
concerning art education at a meeting
of the Canadian Society for Education through Art held in Toronto last
month were Prof. E. G. Ozard and
Mr. J. A. S. Macdonald of the College of Education.
The Canadian society is affiliated
with the International Society for
Education through Art sponsored by
UNESCO and draws its membership
from among art supervisors, provincial
art directors and university art personnel.
3000 SLIDES
The collection, invaluable for teaching and research includes embryos of
lampreys, sharks, bony fishes, reptiles,
amphibians and various animals.
As well as selecting and locating the
specimens for the embryo collection,
Dr. Ford has performed the time-consuming task of preparing and mounting cross sections of each one on small
glass slides which now number more
than 3000.
Budget problems have prevented
Dr. Ford from having technical assistance in preparing the slides and from
buying facilities for storing them
properly.
But in spite of these handicaps, Dr.
Ford anticipates that one day the embryology collection will enable UBC
to give courses in developmental anatomy unexcelled in North America.
UBC prepares for
two-day open house
More than 75,000 people are expected at UBC's Open House celebrations on February 28 and March 1
to view faculty and student displays
illustrating the University's "partnership with the community."
Ron Longstaffe, chairman of the
student committee, says it is also
hoped to give visitors a glimpse of
what UBC will look like in the future. Models of future buildings and
plans for development will be on
display.
Committees have already been set
up in all faculties to plan the content
and form of displays. More than 20
student clubs have told the committee
they are preparing displays of their
activities.
To allow a greater number of people
to see the displays, Open House will
be a two-day event this year. Buildings will be open from 7 p.m. to
10 p.m. on Friday, February 28 and
from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday,
March  1.
Members of the Legislature and the
government, as well as the mayors
and reeves of cities and towns throughout the province have been invited
to attend a luncheon in Brock Hall
on Saturday.
Saturday will also mark the climax
of the UBC Development Fund Campaign and officials hope to announce
the drive has topped its objective.

Dr. Yanaihara, whose visit to UBC
was sponsored by the Asia Foundation in San Francisco, told of the
remarkable recovery made by Japan
since the end of the Second World
War. He said his country no longer
bore the marks of the war, either culturally or economically.
Referring to Japanese trade with
foreign countries, Dr. Yanaihara said
increased international trade was essential if Japan was to raise her
standard of living.
He revealed that a miniature Japanese car would soon be sold in
Canada.

Students encouraged to
continue fitness program
Most students entering UBC are less proficient physically than their
counterparts in Europe and most American states.
This fact is the reason why UBC will continue to urge student
participation in an intensive physical fitness program highlighted by
two years of compulsory physical education, says Mr. Robert Osborne,
director of the school of physical education.
The University feels that students should have a physical outlet and
Trek recreated at
Homecoming banquet
Retiring UBC chancellor, Chief
lustice Sherwood Lett, was presented
with the 1957 Great Trekker Award
at the Great Trek Dinner held during
Homecoming.
The award is given annually by the
students of UBC to a graduate who
has made outstanding contributions to
the University, the community and
student life.
Presentation of the award was made
by Alma Mater Society President Ben
Trevino.
In commemoration of the 35 th anniversary of the Great Trek, a parade
was staged through the lounge of
Brock Hall. Marchers wearing 1922
dress carried banners and sang songs.
Members of the classes of '27, '32,
'37 and '47 came from various parts
of Canada and the United States for
re-unions over Homecoming weekend.
The annual Alumni vs. Students
basketball game saw Alumni edge the
Thunderbirds 51-50.
Popular event was faculty-alumni
re-unions held on premises of 21 faculties, schools and departments.
Alumni heard talks by faculty members on developments within their
departments.
It was suggested that this kind of reunion should become a permanent
feature of Homecoming.
Senate changes two
examination rules
UBC's Senate has passed two new
regulations concerning the writing of
supplemental examinations in the faculty of arts and science.
In future students will be allowed to
write only one supplemental instead
of two as in the past.
Formerly students with two supple-
mentals to write failed one or both
of them according to Dean S. N. F.
Chant, head of the faculty of arts
and science.
"We feel it is better for students
to concentrate on writing one examination," he said.
Senate also passed a regulation that
students must attain 40 per cent in
the first examination before being allowed to write a supplemental. Previously they had only to attain 35
per cent.
new sports have been introduced to
stimulate the interest of incoming
students.
Among the sports offered are golf,
swimming, badminton, archery, weight
training together with such regular
team sports as football, soccer and
grass hockey.
"Often we have found that the first
real interest a student acquires in
athletics comes as a result of this
compulsory program," claims Mr.
Osborne.
Offered for the first time this year
as part of the program is bowling,
which students can now work at intensively on the new alleys installed
in the War Memorial gymnasium.
The six alleys, built with a loan to
be repaid out of revenue, were part
of the original plans for the gymnasium but could not be included
when the building was constructed for
lack of funds.
The alleys were built at a cost of
$21,000 and a further $10,000 was
used to install a heating and ventilating system. The loan will be repaid
in approximately five years with
money derived from renting the facilities to outside leagues which pay
standard rates.
In the mornings from 8:30 to 12:30
the alleys are used by students as
part of the physical fitness program.
According to Mr. Osborne the fitness program is having results. Already he has been approached by a
group of ten medical students who
want to use gym facilities on Sunday
for weight training.
"The University," says Mr. Osborne,
"feels it has a responsibility to provide an opportunity for students to
develop their physical ability. It does
not matter to us whether the student
is on the first or the fifth team in
any particular sport. We also hope it
will stimulate the student into making
some sort of contribution to athletics
after he leaves UBC."

FAV and  ROBIN  PEARCE
British painter
to teach at UBC
Fay Pearce, wife of Robin Pearce,
supervisor of arts and crafts in the
Extension Department joins the extension staff in January to instruct
a Painter's Workshop.
Mrs. Pearce, a painter and muralist,
has worked and exhibited in England,
Africa and the Middle East.
She has wide experience in teaching
and was the first supervisor for British
Government Fine Arts Examinations
in Cyprus, and ran the first art group
there for combined beginners, and
advanced painters of all nationalities.
The Workshop she will conduct at
UBC beginning Jan. 6 will be in
three sections—beginners, advanced,
and combined drawing and painting.
ARTIST AT WORK
Robin and Fay Pearce plan to conduct a series of lecture demonstrations throughout the Province.
Mrs. Pearce begins with an empty
canvas and during the demonstration
illustrates how a painting grows from
preliminary drawing to completion
while Mr. Pearce answers questions
about what is happening.
As well as providing a good deal
of technical information to the painter,
these lecture-demonstrations give those
interested in appreciation an insight
into the artist's point of view.
