Array UBC    REPORTS   CAMPUS   EDITION
Graduating
Class Gives
$15,500
The gift of the 1974 graduating class will take the
form of grants of more than 515,500 to three UBC
projects and one community-based organization.
A total of 31 campus and community organizations
submitted applications for a share of the graduating
class gift. The council of the graduating class approved
17 of the projects, which were then voted on by members of the graduating class.
The four projects that topped the poll a'e:
• UBC's Museum of Anthropology, now under construction in the northwest section of the campus, will
receive a total of $6,000. Graduating students approved a $5,000 grant to aid in the purchase of materials and the carving of a massive wooden entrance to the
Museum, which will house UBC's outstanding collection of Northwest Coast Indian artifacts as well as collections representing other world cultures.
ADDITIONAL GRANT
The council of the graduating class also approved an
additional grant of $1,000 for a mural for the interior
of the Museum.
• UBC Day Care Centre No. 2, one of e ghtday care
centres operating in Acadia Camp at UBC, will receive a
grant of $5,000 to aid the centre in extending their
present quarters. Up to 160 children ranging in age
from 18 months to five years, are accommodated in the
eight day care centres, each of which operates as a
parent co-operative.
• A grant of $4,500 will be made to a group of UBC
Engineering students who are redesigning and rebuilding a B.C. Hydro bus with the object of making it more
comfortable and efficient and safer. The ultimate aim
of the project is to encourage greater use of buses for
urban transit.
• The Vancouver Environmental Law Office will
also receive a grant from the graduating class. The organization provides legal advice to community groups
and individuals on environmental problem;. VELO will
receive whatever money remains in the graduating-class
fund when all other disbursements have been made.
The 1974 graduating class of the Faculty of Science
has contributed $780 to a $4,620 fund to upgrade
Room 2000 in UBC's Biological Sciences Building.
The student gift was matched by the Department of
Botany and the Department of Zoology and the office
of the Dean of Science. The Systems Services department, which allocates and books all University rooms
for lectures and other events, contributed $1,500. All
the contributions resulted in a fund of $4,620 for the
improvements.
NEW EQUIPMENT
Most of the funds will be spent for the purchase of
new audio-visual equipment for the room, for the installation of new lighting, and improvement of the
200-seat lecture room, the largest in the building.
A plaque acknowledging the gift will be unveiled in
Room 2000 at 10:00 a.m. on Friday (May 31), the day
on which Bachelor of Science degrees are awarded.
Members of the B.Sc. graduating class are invited to the
short ceremony, which will be followed by a coffee
hour.
3,300 to Get Degrees at
Colorful Campus Ceremony
A total of 3,300 students will receive their academic
degrees during UBC's three-day Spring Congregation
ceremony on May 29, 30 and 31.
UBC's Chancellor, the Hon. Nathan T. Nemetz,
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of B.C., will preside
at the ceremony ancl confer all academic and honorary
degrees, which have previously been approved by the
Senate, UBC's supreme academic body.
In addition to academic degrees to be conferred on
students who have completed requirements for degrees, UBC will also award honorary degrees to six persons for their contributions to the University and to
public life.
The Congregation ceremony begins at 2:15 p.m.
each day in the campus War Memorial Gymnasium.
What follows is a day-by-day account of the degrees
to be awarded at the 1974 ceremony.
Prof. Binning is regarded as one of the founders of
the contemporary school of West Coast painting. His
works are included in the permanent collections of
Canada's leading public galleries and he has also executed a number of mosaics and murals for buildings in
Vancouver.
THURSDAY,
MAY  30
WEDNESDAY,
MAY  29
Students graduating from the Faculty of Arts, the
largest of UBC's 1 2 Faculties, will be in the spotlight on
the first day of Congregation. Master's degrees in Arts,
Fine Arts, Music, Library Science, and Social Work will
be conferred, as will Bachelor's degrees in Arts, Fine
Arts, Home Economics and Music.
Two noted members of the UBC teaching staff will
each receive the honorary degree of Doctor of Literature (D.Litt.) on the first day of Congregation. They
are: Prof. Margaret Ormsby, retiring head of the UBC
History department, and Prof. B.C. "Bert" Binning,
former head of the Department of Fine Arts and a
noted Canadian painter.
Prof. Ormsby has been a member of the UBC faculty
since 1943 and was named head of the History department in 1965.
A tireless researcher into the history of her native
B.C., Prof. Ormsby is perhaps best known for her
widely-acclaimed book, British Columbia: A History,
published to mark the province's 1958 Centennial celebrations.
Born in Quesnel, Prof. Ormsby received her
Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees in history at UBC
and her Doctor of Philosophy degree from Bryn Mawr
College. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada
and a former president of the Canadian Historical Association.
Prof. Binning joined the UBC faculty in 1949 as an
associate professor in the School of Architecture after
teaching at the Vancouver School of Art for 14 years.
He became the first head of UBC's Department of Fine
Arts in 1955, a post he held until 1968. He continued
to teach at UBC until last year.
Three honorary degrees will be awarded at the
Thursday ceremony. Academic degrees to be awarded
include the highest offered by the University - the
Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Education degrees.
The honorary degree of Doctor of Laws (LL.D.) will
be conferred on Miss D. Mary Pack, former executive
director of the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism
Society; on the Hon. H. Carl Goldenberg, a member of
the Canadian Senate and a noted political scientist and
economist; and on Mr. Taffara Deguefe, a UBC graduate who is now managing director of the Commercial
Bank of Ethiopia.
Miss Pack pioneered the organization in B.C. of
medical and paramedical services for victims of arthritis
and rheumatism. After attending the founding meeting
of the national Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism
Society in October, 1947, she returned to Vancouver
and organized the first provincial branch of the organization, building it into the largest division in Canada in
the ensuing 22 years.
She served as the executive secretary and executive
director of the B.C. division of CARS from 1947 until
her retirement in 1969.
While she was head of the B.C. division, the organization developed a province-wide medical and rehabilitation program for arthritis and rheumatism victims
and constructed the Arthritis Treatment Centre adjacent to the Vancouver General Hospital.
CARS also played a leading role in the establishment
of UBC's School of Rehabilitation Medicine, which
trains physiotherapists and occupational therapists,
and of an arthritis research unit in the Faculty of Medicine.
Senator Goldenberg, who practices law in Montreal,
has served on numerous commissions of inquiry established by governments at all levels and as an arbitrator
of labor-management disputes in almost every province

Canada at a number of international conferences and
served as undersecretary tor external affairs on two
occasions.
He was educated at the University of Montreal,
where he received a law degree, and the University of
Paris, where he was awarded the degree of Doctor of
Literature in 1938.
On Friday, Master's degrees will be awarded in
Applied Science, Engineering, Architecture, Nursing,
Forestry, Law, and Science. Bachelor's degrees will be
awarded in Science, Applied Science, Architecture,

UBC also pays tribute during its annual Congregation ceremony to those students who head their respective graduating classes.
The student who heads each graduating class is presented to Chancellor Nemetz when he or she arrives at
the platform at the east end of the War Memorial
Gymnasium to receive his or her academic degree.
Only one student — the winner of the Governor-
General's Gold Medal as head of the graduating class in
either Arts or Science — is especially singled out.

Colorful Congregation Gown
The gowns and floods worn by graduating students
and by faculty members for UBC's annual Congregation ceremony are rooted in 800-year-old customs.
The garb of students and faculty members is linked
to the dress of the high Middle Ages, which extended
roughly from the 12th to the 15th century.
Three items worn by participants in the ceremony —
a gown, a hood and, in the case of women graduates, a
mortarboard cap — are 20th-century counterparts of
the apparel worn in the medieval period.
Eight hundred years ago a basic item of apparel for
practically everyone was a long robe or gown, which
varied in materials, cut, color and trimmings according
to the station of the owner.
HOOD ATTACHED
Over the gown was worn a cloak, often fur-or wool-
lined, which had attached to it a hood that could be
pulled up to cover the head in cold or rainy weather.
The hood, when not covering the head, hung down
the wearer's back. In the later Middle Ages the hood
was often absent and worn as a separate item, which
usually took the form of a close-fitting headpiece.
These elements, with minor variations, make up the
dress worn by graduating students at UBC's Congregation ceremony.
Students receiving their first degree wear a gown of
"ordinary stuff material" (stuff simply means woollen)
with long sleeves and the yoke edged in khaki cord. The
master's degree is the same, minus the cord.
UBC's Doctor of Philosophy gown is considerably
more lavish. It consists of an ankle-length gown of
maroon silk material with front facing panels of UBC
blue with gold piping. The hood has blue silk on the
outside and is lined with gold material. The Ph.D. cap is
a decanal bonnet of maroon silk with gold cord and
tassel.
The brightly-colored hoods worn by students have
evolved from the garment which once covered the
heads of medieval men. In the course of time various
colors came to be associated with each degree. These
colors are used in the material which lines the students'
hoods. Occasionally a colored cord is used as an embel- Welcome Mat Out for Visitors to UBC

■"'lishment on the edge of the hood.
The mortarboard cap worn by women graduates
evolved from a loose-fitting cap into a fuller and looser
bonnet, which eventually became so large that the
corners began to droop. The practice of inserting a
board in the hat to keep the corners from falling originated in England in the 16th century.
HIGHEST DEGREE
At UBC's graduating ceremony, all candidates for
. academic or earned degrees, with the exception of Doctor of Philosophy candidates, enter the War Memorial
"'Gymnasium wearing their hoods and carrying their degrees, which they received in the Student Union Building, where the student procession assembles.
Because the Ph.D. is the highest earned degree
awarded by UBC, doctoral candidates have their hoods
placed over their shoulders after being presented to
UBC's Chancellor, the Hon. Nathan Nemetz.
The Chancellor confers on all students the degrees
which were granted in the previous week at a meeting
of the Senate, UBC's paramount academic body.
, Similarly, honorary degree recipients, honored for
their contributions to university and public life, receive
their hoods after UBC's President, Dr. Walter H. Gage,
has presented the candidate to the Chancellor and read
a citation which outlines the reasons for conferring the
honorary degree.
What follows is a listing of the hood colors associated with each of the degrees to be awarded:
Bachelor of Arts — University blue; Bachelor of Fine
Arts - University blue with magenta cord; Bachelor of
Applied Science — scarlet; Bachelor of Commerce —
light grey with black and grey cord; Licentiate in
Accounting — light grey with white cord; Bachelor of
Education — white with cord of University blue; Bachelor of Home Economics — turquoise; Master of Library
Science - cadmium yellow: Bachelor of Music - University blue with cord of alizarin crimson; Bachelor of
Science — light blue; Bachelor of Architecture — scarlet
with white cord.
Doctor of Dental Medicine — lilac and red; Doctor
of Education — blue and gold, with blue, white and
gold chevrons; Bachelor of Physical Education - malachite green; Bachelor of Recreation Education -malachite green with gold and green cord; Bachelor of Science in Agriculture - maize; Bachelor of Science in
Forestry — brown with green cord; Bachelor of Science
in Nursing - scarlet with twisted cord of University
blue and white; Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy —
dark green with cord of scarlet; Bachelor of Science in
Rehabilitation — scarlet and white twisted cord on
royal blue.
Master of Social Work - magenta; Bachelor of Laws
— amethyst violet; Doctor of Medicine - scarlet and
royal blue; Doctor of Philosophy - blue and gold.
HOOD COLORS
The hoods for Master's degrees are the same as the
Bachelor's lined with the distinctive color.
The hood for the honorary degree of Doctor of
Laws (LL.D.) is scarlet broadcloth lined with dark blue
velvet; that for the Doctor of Literature (D.Litt.) is the
same with a white lining.

PREPARED FOR UBC REPORTS BY THE UBC ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
NEW SHELL for UBC rowers, donated by Dr. Walter
Koerner, will be named the "Wally Cruiser" for UBC's
President, Dr. Walter Gage, left. Prof. William C. Gibson, right, announced the donation at a May 18
banquet winding up the UBC-hosted Western Intercol
legiate Rowing Championships. Outgoing Alumni
Association President George Morfitt, centre, holds
plaque presented at banquet in recognition of the UBC
Alumni Association's contribution to rowing meet
arrangements.
Rowers to Get New Shell
Dr. Walter Koerner, a former chairman of the UBC
Board of Governors, has made a gift of a new rowing
shell to University of B.C. rowers.
Dr. W.C. Gibson, head of the Department of the
History of Medicine and Science at UBC and a rowing
supporter, formally announced the gift at the May 18
awards banquet of the Western Intercollegiate Rowing
Champiqnships which were held on Burnaby Lake on
May 17 and 18.
The new four-oared shell will be a much-needed addition to the rowers' equipment and will join an eight-
oared shell which Dr. Koerner donated three years ago.
UBC alumni are to match the gift. In recognition of
Dr. Koerner's generosity to UBC, the UBC Alumni
Association has decided to take steps immediately to
provide money for the acquisition of a second four-
oared shell. The shell donated by Dr. Koerner is to be
named the "Wally Cruiser" in honor of UBC's President, Dr. Walter H. Gage, and the alumni shell is to be
named the "Aubrey Roberts I" in honor of an original
Great Trekker and long-time supporter of rowing.
The largest collegiate rowing regatta ever held in
Canada, the rowing championships brought together
more than 25 universities and 500 oarsmen from
Canada and the United States.
Mr. Frank Read, coach of the famous and powerful
UBC "Cinderella Crew" of the 1950s, and Mr. George
Pocock, a noted Seattle rowing-shell builder known as
"Mr. Rowing of North America" for his avid support of
the sport, were special head table guests at the banquet
held in the UBC Faculty Club.
Both gave tributes to the sport of rowing and Mr.
Read presented the Frank Read Trophy to the University of Washington junior varsity eights, while Pocock
presented the University of Washington eight-oar crew
with the Ebright Trophy for winning the varsity eights
event.
The UBC eights crew placed sixth out of a large field
of competition, while the Burnaby Lake Centre crew,
all of whom are UBC alumni, won the open four without cox event.
Association Honors Two
Two prominent Canadians who are as distinguished
for their social concern as for their professional
achievements were honored on May 15 by the UBC
Alumni Association.
The Association, at its annual dinner held at the
Hotel Vancouver, awarded the Alumni Award of Distinction to Dr. Hugh Keenleyside, a distinguished longtime public servant and former co-chairman of B.C.
Hydro, and awarded an Honorary Life Membership to
UBC zoology professor Dr. David Suzuki, a noted researcher and teacher in the field of genetics.
A graduate of UBC and Clark University, Dr.
Keenleyside has had a long and varied career of public
service. In addition to service on many national and
international councils and commissions, Dr. Keenleyside has served as Canada's Under-Secretary of State for
External Affairs, Ambassador to Mexico, director-
general  of the  United Nations Technical Assistance
4/UBC Reports/May 29, 1974
Administration and co-chairman of B.C. Hydro. An
outspoken opponent of war and the spread of nuclear
weapons and an advocate of increased foreign aid, Dr.
Keenleyside was cited for his distinguished public
service and his social concern.
Vancouver-born Dr. David Suzuki, a graduate of
Amherst College and the University of Chicago, is
noted as an excellent researcher and teacher. In 1969
he was the recipient of the E.W.R. Steacie Memorial
Fellowship for outstanding research in Canada and in
1968 he was named runner-up for UBC's Master
Teacher Award. Dr. Suzuki was cited not only for his
research and teaching achievements, but also for his
determined advocacy of the social responsibility of
science.
As one of his last official duties, outgoing Alumni
Association President George Morfitt made the
presentations.
