$2 minion
building
started
Construction is under way for the
new $2 million Arts Building which
is expected to be completed in time
for the start of classes in the fall of
1958.
Contract was awarded early this
month to contractor A.R. Grimwood
Ltd., who underbid five other firms
for the job.
The Grimwood bid of $1,658,660
was $48,000 under the next lowest
tender. Architect's fees, furnishings
and fixtures are expected to boost the
total cost of the building to $2 million.
University architects Thompson,
Berwick and Pratt designed the
building.
A. R. Grimwood Ltd. are now engaged in construction of a $300,000-
addition to Brock Hall being financed
by students out of a $5 per year levy
they have imposed on themselves to
increase student recreational facilities.
The same contracting firm built the
University's Law Building, completed
in 1952, and the University Hill High
School.
The 100,000 square foot Arts Building will be built at the north end of
the Main Mall. Three linked units will
produce  a  new  campus  quadrangle.
The main classroom block backs on
Memorial Road opposite the library.
Connected with it will be a unit con-
tainig larger amphitheatre classrooms
and a faculty office building.
Also under construction at present
is a women's dormitory building project which will link up Anne Wes-
brook Hall and Mary Bollert Hall,
providing accomodation for an additional 69 girls. It is expected to be
ready for occupancy in January.
Other building projects to be undertaken this year include a $200,000
addition to library bookstack facilities
and a $12,000 project to add to married students suites at Wesbrook
camp.
Development
fund total hits
$105000
The University Development Fund
has gone over its 1956 objective of
$100,000, but still needs considerable
"free money."
Contributions to the rowing fund
campaign totalling $19,200 pushed the
Development Fund's total to $105,000
by Sept. 30, Alumni Association executive-secretary Arthur H. Sager
announced.
However, all but $13,000 of the
$105,000 total has been "ear-marked"
money contributed for special purposes.
Several thousands of dollars of
"free money" is still needed to provide
for worth-while projects that come up
during the year and are not provided
for in the regular university budget.
A total of 3100 alumni and 250 non-
graduate friends of the university
have made contributions so far this
year.
7500 students
swell enrolment
Student enrolment at the University of B.C. jumped to near 7500
this year, an increase of more than 1000 over last year's registration
totals.
ANGUS MacINNIS
. . . LL.D. for M.P.
Six to receive
UBC honors
Dr. Stephen Roberts, Vice-Chancellor and principal of the University
of Sydney, Australia, is among the
six distinguished Commonwealth citizens who will receive honorary
Doctor of Law degrees (LL.D) from
the University of British Columbia
at fall congregation.
Dr. Roberts will give the congregation address at ceremonies awarding
honorary degrees and certificates to
students completing degree requirements over the summer on Oct. 26
at 2:30 p.m. in the University
Armouries.

New society
to support
UBC library
A new link between campus and
community was forged last month
with the formation of a Friends of the
Library   Society
More than 100 people interested
in the work of the University Library
attended the innaugural meeting and
heard Dr. J. N. L. Myres, Librarian
of the Bodleian Library of Oxford
University tell of the value of Library
friends.
"The purpose of the Friends," according to the society's official statement, "is to develop the library resources of the University and to provide opportunity for persons interested
in the University Library to keep
informed about its growth and needs
gnd to express their interests more
effectively."
Dr. Wallace Wilson, B.C. medical
administrator, is president of the new
organization.
One annual meeting is planned for
the friends of the Library and guest
speakers will be invited to address the
group from time to time.
The University Library, has a collection of more than 300,00 volumes
and ranks as the third largest English
language library in Canada.
About 870 of the students are registered in the new College of Education program for elementary school
teachers which replaces the Normal
School system formerly in effect in
British Columbia.
It is not known how much of the
increase over last year's registration
total of 6403 results from students
now in the College of Education who
would have gone to the provincial
Normal Schools had the old system
remained in effect.
A considerable increase was expected in enrolment apart from the formation of the New Education Faculty
and University officials expect that
enrolments will continue to increase
at a rapid rate.
NEW   FACULTIES,   COURSES
Students returning to the campus
this fall found many other changes
and additions. The former school of
Commerce had been raised to new
status as the Faculty of Commerce
and Business Administration.
Many new courses were added to
the curriculum, notably in Asian
Studies and the language departments.
The former departments of French
and Spanish had been amalgamated
into a new Deprtment of Romance
Studies and a credit course in Italian
had been added to the curriculum of
the new department.
The   Department   of   Economics,
Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology had been split into two new

Tenth anniversary
Pharmacy celebrates birthday
Sir Hugh Linstead, noted British
pharmacist and president of the International Pharmaceutical Federation,
will be honored at UBC's fall congregation with the first honorary
doctor of laws degree awarded to a
pharmacist by a Canadian University.
The honor comes as UBC's Faculty
of Pharmacy celebrates the tenth anniversary Of the teaching of pharmacy
in British Columbia.
Groundwork began on a pharmacy
program in 1938. In 1946 the University with the cooperation of the B.C.
Pharmaceutical Association established a department of pharmacy in
the Faculty of Arts and Science.
That year the staff of three headed
by Dean E. L. Woods taught 58 students enrolled for pharmacy.
Within three years the department
became a faculty and subsequently
moved into the Biological Sciences
and Pharmacy building.
This September enrolment is 144
with a staff of seven headed by Dean
A. W. Matthews.
It
SIR  HUGH   LINSTEAD
. . . pharmacist honored
The demand for UBC trained pharmacists continues. Each year graduates are absorbed into the retail
practice, hospitals, and, as specialization increases, into direct selling of
pharmaceuticals.
To bring requirements for practical
training more in line with present day
needs, legislation now permits pharmacy students serve their year of
apprenticeship either before or after
graduating.
This system has attracted students
to pharmacy from other faculties and
it allows students to enter pharmacy
from high schools. *
Sir Hugh Linstead will visit the
ten-year-old faculty when he comes to
the University to receive his honorary
degree.
He will see the facilities that rank
with the finest to be found anywhere
in the study of pharmacy.
He will see a vigorous faculty grown
in ten years to take its place among
the best training centres of pharmacy
in Canada. Page 2

The President says;
Growth inevitable
(A UBC Reports reader has written that she thinks President N. A. M.
MacKenzie's ideas about making the University bigger are unfortunate. The
following article is part of the President's letter in reply to her comments.)
As you probably know, during the years that I have spent at Dal-
housie, Harvard, Cambridge, Toronto and now UBC, and the visits
that I have made to literally dozens of other universities, I have
acquired a good deal of experience about universities and I would
be the last to claim that bigness is itself desirable or an advantage
However, other factors do affect and determine the trend of events
and one's decisions and actions.
In British Columbia about 75% of the population is within 100
miles of the University and most of this is in the Greater Vancouver
area. Because of two wars and a depression this University has been
deprived of the buildings and equipment which other universities
possess. Professional schools and faculties, Medicine, Law, Engineering, Dentistry and the like, and the expensive scientific laboratories
for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Bacteriology.etc, cannot be duplicated without great and unnecessary cost to the taxpayers. Because of
the scattered population, only Vancouver and Victoria in British
Columbia possess the community facilities which are so necessary to
to higher education, both at the cultural and the professional level.
I have in mind, art galleries, museums, hospitals, law courts, libraries
and institutions or facilities of this kind.
All of these facts make it inevitable that higher education be concentrated in the Greater Vancouver area and it is certain that higher
education will be concentrated here. Whether we like it or not our
enrolment will grow.
Naturally I have given a great deal of thought to this problem and
there have been many interesting suggestions made, among them,
autonomous colleges here on the campus of UBC under the general
supervision of the province-wide Board of Governors or Regents. This
would give the kind of intimacy that is so valuable in the smaller
institutions. It would keep costs down and would at the same time
give students and the staff of all affiliated institutions access to the
libraries and expensive laboratories of the University itself.
Two or three other suggestions have value. The first, that we
appoint enough professors and teachers to ensure that all of our
students will get some personal supervision from and contact with the
teaching staff on the intimate level. The second, that we provide an
adequate and well organized system of residences with plenty of space
in them for study, for recreation, and for social life and for living
in the sense of meeting together with other students and with members
of the faculty. To help those like yourself who live in the interior,
there should be a generous system of scholarships, bursaries, loans
ancf grants-in-aid to lessen the burden and the disadvantages which
are now yours as compared with those who happen to live here in
Vancouver.
If all of these, and other things, can be done, I do not believe that
the actual size or numbers matter too much, and while the big university has draw backs, it also has many great advantages, among them
the capacity to attract and keeep outstanding teachers and scientists
and to provide modern and up to date facilities for research.
Our thanks
The University of British Columbia offers its thanks to the many
graduates and friends of the university who have contributed so
generously to the university fund raising ventures.
More encouraging than the fact that 105 thousand dollars has
been contributed to the Development fund, is that contributions
were received from 3100 graduates and 250 non-graduate friends
of the University.
More non-earmarked monies are needed for pressing current needs
and "unexpected contingencies. With every confidence that these
monies will be forthcoming we are thanking you for your welcome
support both in the past and in the future.
College improves
teacher education
By NEVILLE V. SCARFE
Dean of the College and Faculty of Education
On September 1, 1956, the University of British Columbia
officially took over the task of educating and preparing for the
teaching profession all those persons in the province who so wished
to be trained.No longer are there to be separate authorities within
British Columbia for preparing different categories for teachers.
By this great pioneering act the
Province and the University have
accepted the fact that teaching is a
great profession alongside iaw, medicine, engineering, commerce and also
that the preparation of a teacher is
as big and as truly a university function as that of preparation for Other
professions. It has also established the
fact that the proper training of a
teacher is long and scholarly business.
At one stroke the University and
the Province have agreed that teacher
preparation must be improved if the
nation's children are to be properly
educated, and are prepared to face the
challenge of making the improvement
effective.
As evidence of their determination
to see that this new College is adequate
to its task the government has supplied
funds and the University has appointed
new staff. In addition, the staff of the
former Vancouver Normal School and
of the old University School of Education have been taken over. This pooling of staff and resources is of great
importance, for the whole is providing
of far greater value than the sum of
the parts.
The College of Education is, there
fore, a monument to a farsighted
peoples' faith in Education as the
salvation of future generations. It is
more. Schools are taking on greater
significance in all communities. Teachers are taking over more and more
of the responsibilities formerly exercised by parents. The influence of
the teacher intellectually has always
been greater than the public were
willing to accept, but in modern times
emotional and moral influences of
profound effect are being added to
the intellectual influences which produced such men as Churchill, Roosevelt, Lester Pearson or Stephen Lea-
cock.
Business men are now very keenly
aware that the quality of their employees depends not only on the efficiency with which they have acquired
technical skills in schools, not only on
the accuracy of their knowledge of
mathematics, science and English, but
also on their whole outlook to the
world of work. Conscientious honesty,
ability to get along with others, serious attention to duty, persistant application, and happy disposition are all
desirable   in   the   world   of   work.
Scholarship from industry
These attributes are all learned,
often for life, in school, particularly
in the elementary school. Only fine
quality persons can exhibit the kind
of example that young people should
emulate. It is the belief of the University that only by prolonged contact
with the life it offers can teachers of
desirable quality be produced.
It is significant of the trend of public thinking to find large and enlightened business enterprises now offering
scholarships direct to persons who are
willing to become teachers. In the past
the tendency was to provide only research scholarships in special science
fields. Now it is realized that the supply of those who can be trained as research scientists will dwindle unless
there are adequate teachers of science.
Without red tape
From now on all teachers if they so
wish, can obtain a University degree
with what amounts to honours in education. It is a new scholarly program
approved by professors noted for high
standards in Arts and is more tailored
»to the needs of teachers than any previously devised program in Canada.
Each year of university study is recog-
nize'd by the Department of Education
by a rising scale of certification and
salary assessment. Teachers do not
have to attend four or five full consecutive years of campus before going
out to teach. Some courses are provided in summer session and in winter
evenings. There is, in fact, great flexibility, but the way is now open for
every teacher to secure a university
degree without red tape or difficult
regulations.
All teachers in training are given a
thorough background of general and
special education, and no one has a
permanent certificate without two
years of university work.
The College is a means of relating
theory and practice more effectively.
It will not be long before businesses
will realize that all their employees
can be improved, and therefore their
production increased if better persons
enter our schools to make learning
more efficient and citizenship more
significant. The future depends as
much on attitudes of honest, thoughtful and willing cooperation on the
part of all citizens of Canada as upon
the efficiency of trained but embittered grumbling but disillusioned
misanthropists.
The College of Education has been
created in a period of intelligent
optimism, and represents farsighted
planning on the part of Government,
University, Teachers and Trustees
Organizations and the general public.
All students will have close contact
with their professors. In particular
small groups will come under the constant guidance of a Faculty Adviser
who will act almost as the master
craftsman did to his apprentices in the
days of the early guilds. A great deal
of individual guidance will be given.
Such guidance is and always has been
necessary, for teaching is essentially
an individual craft in which each person's unique personality must be put
to its most profitable use.
Individual and group guidance of an
intensive character is very expensive
and time consuming, but the results
are rewarding. Every teacher in a life
time will influence profoundly no less
than 1000 children. According to the
personal qualities of the teacher developed by individual attention during
teacher training, so will be the qualities
of a 1000 future citizens. What may
seem an expensive method of training
one person at first, is in fact very small
when the benefits are spread to a 1000
people. October, 1956

ARCHAEOLOGY SURVEYS of British Columbia made this summer by
Dr. C. E. Borden of the University's anthropology department turned up
hundreds of relics including this early stone carving found on Denman
Island.
Archaeologist unearths
B.C. site of early man
"Early Man" left his mark on B.C. — and his mark has been discovered by Dr. C. E. Borden from the University's Anthropology
department.
Students
go to farms
for training
The University of British Columbia
Faculty of Agriculture is setting a pace
{in agricultural education that is
making universities across Canada sit
up and take notice.
Forty UBC agriculture students
made an eight day tour of farms,
ranches and food processing plants in
the Fraser Valley, Okanagan and. Cariboo districts last month.
Dr. Robert Brawn, Professor of
Agronomy at Macdonald College,
McGill University's agricultural college, made a special trip to British
Columbia to get a first hand look at
the UBC credit course in agriculture
which takes students directly to the
major food producing areas in the
province.
The course, started at UBC four
years ago on an experimental basis,
is now compulsory for all agriculture
students.
One unit of credit is given for the
course which includes writing detailed
reports and essays on what thay have
studied during the tour which is jointly
sponsored by B.C.. Institute of Agrolo-
gists and the University of B.C.
Several Canadian universities have
expressed interest in this program
which is unique in Canada and are
studying it with a view to copying the
course in their institutions.
Victoria alumni
plan annual dance
Annual    dance   of   the   Victoria
Branch of the UBC Alumni Assoc-
' iation will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the Empress Hotel at 9 p.m.,
Nov. 9.
This summer Dr. Borden undertook
surveys along the lower Fraser River
and on Denman Island, north of Nan-
aimo, to find out what the archaeological resources of the areas are, and
to assess the need for salvage operations.
As to resources, Dr. Borden found
the area between Yale and Hope
promises to be a particularly rich field
for future archaeological research.
He believes there is little doubt that
the site between Yale and Hope has
witnessed a longer history of human
occupation than any yet discovered in
B.C.
Discoveries range from pithouse
villages of the last century to sites used
thousands of years ago.
PIPELINE DESTROYS PITHOUSE
Evidence from Denman Island suggests that in recent centuries use of the
island has fallen off from early times.
Dr. Borden feels there is an urgent
need for legislation to protect the
archaeological resources of B.C.
Already the laying of the new gas
pipeline has destroyed an entire pit-
house village near Hope.
Removal of five thousand tons of
clamshell from midden deposits on
Denman Island has obliterated irreplaceable prehistoric remains there.
Dr. Borden carried out his comprehensive reports through the assistance of grants from the UBC Committee on Research and the Leon and
Thea Koerner Foundation.
Courses given
by correspondence
Eight correspondence courses for
credit toward a bachelor of arts degree
are being offered by the University
of B.C. extension this fall.
Students may take only one correspondence course at a time and are
limited to a total of five degrees
credit. This amounts to a* quarter of
the work required for a B.A. degree.
Four more new courses will be
added to the present correspondence
curriculum in January to fill the
demand for this type of study.
Trekker tells frosh
to uphold tradition
Freshmen arriving at the University of B.C. this fall learned from
a "Great Trekker" that they have a glorious tradition to uphold.
MacAAillan
gives books
A rare book describing early Spanish explorations of the Strait of Juan
de Fuca is included in a collection of
early editions presented by H. R. Mac-
Millan to the University of B.C.
library.
The rare volumes gives details of
the 1792 exploration of the strait by
the Spanish ships Sutil and Mijicana.
An atlas accompanying this book
contains an early map of Vancouver
Island.
Another rare volume in the collection of books of exploration and
discovery describes a voyage around
the world made in 1803 by A. J. von
Krustenstern.
A large atlas containing charts and
engravings of ethnic groups and ports
of call accompanies the book.
These books are valuable additions
to the University's collection on early
voyages and explorations, says University librarian Neal Harlow.
Alumni plan
homecoming
Annual homecoming for UBC
graduates will be held Nov. 3 with
class reunions planned for four graduating classes during the same week.
Homecoming luncheon sponsored
by the Alumni Association will be
held at Brock Hall 12 noon Nov. 3
prior to the UBC Thunderbird football game against Central Washington
College.
Reunions will be held during the
week for classes of '21, '26, '31 and
'36.
Aubrey F. Roberts, a former UBC
student who took part in the Great
Trek of 1922 and who was awarded
the "Great Trekker Award" last year
for his services to his Alma Mater,
told the story of how a student campaign sparked the development of the
present campus.
Speaking at the Cairn Ceremony,
traditional part of freshman orientation, Mr. Roberts, spoke of conditions when UBC was housed in the
Fairview shacks on the grounds of
the General Hospital.
"There were  1100 of us in classrooms designed for 500 and overflow
classes   were   held   in   tents,   church
basements and attics."
HORSE  TRAIL
He told how floats, bands and
banners told the story of UBC's plight
in a mammoth parade which ended
with a streetcar ride to Sasamat and
a march over the old horse trail to the
present campus site.
He told how a student delegation
with a 56,000 signature petition met
with the premier and his cabinet.
And how a week later Premier John
Oliver announced a $1,500,000 grant
to resume construction on the Point
Grey Site.
And he told the freshmen how
students have since carried on that
tradition with campaigns which raised
money for the present Women's Gymnasium, the stadium, Brock Hall and
the War Memorial Gymnasium.
"Don't be afraid to be enthusiastic."
he told them. "The Great Trek
wouldn't have been successful, the
War Memorial gymnasium would
never have been built, and the UBC
crew wouldn't have won the Olympic
trials without enthusiasm."
No comment?
The next issue of UBC Reports will
feature the introduction of a letters to
the editor column. Comments, criticisms and questions about any facet of
the University of B.C. will be welcomed.
Japanese language taught
in Canada for first time
For the first time in Canadian university history a far eastern
language is taking its place on a university curriculum.
The university is UBC, the language is Japanese, and the teacher is
Ronald P. Dore, a young man who
learned the language during the war.
Addition of Japanese is part of the
expanding program in Asian Studies
which includes study of far eastern
culture, history and sociology.
Prof. Dore claims Japanese is no
more difficulty than any other far
eastern language.
"The pronunciation is rather easy;
the difficulty lies in writing it," he
says.
The twelve students enrolled for
Japanese this fall will learn Tokyo
Japanese, the 'standard dialect used
by broadcasting stations.
Before coming to UBC in September, Prof. Dore spent 18 months
in Japan doing a study of the effect
of land reform on Japanese villages
for the Royal Institute of International
Affairs in London.
He studied Japanese at London
University and taught the language
