(See pictures page 3)
More than 900 students at the University of B.C. will receive
their degrees at the 42nd annual spring congregation May 21 and 22.
Degrees will be conferred by Chancellor Sherwood Lett in ceremonies commencing at 2:30 p.m. in the Armouries.
Honorary    degrees   will   be
conferred on:
Dr. Clarence M. Hincks, national
consultant to the Canadian Mental
Health Association, and founder of
the Canadian mental health movement in Canada. He will receive an
honorary Doctor of Science Degree,
(D.Sc).
Advance donations
launch campaign
Two contributions totalling $750,-
000 have been received as advance
gifts for UBC's Capital Gifts Campaign.
Mr. and Mrs. Leon T. Koerner
have given the University $500,000
to finance the whole cost of a Faculty
Centre on the campus.
The B.C. Electric Co. Ltd. has
donated $250,000 to the campaign.
"Advance gifts of this size are a
happy augury for the success of the
campaign," said President N. A. M.
MacKenzie.
The Faculty Centre will be built
on the site of the present faculty
club overlooking Howe Sound and
Burrard Inlet. Plans are being drawn
by Prof. Fted Lasserre, head of
UBC's School of Architecture.
RESEARCH COUNCIL SPEAKER
To receive the same degree is Dr.
E. W. R. Steacie, president of the
National Research Council of Canada, who has had a distinguished
career as a chemist. He will be congregation speaker on May 21.
Capt. M. C. Robinson, national
director of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind in Western Canada, will receive an honorary Doctor
of Laws degree (LL.D.).
Capt. Robinson has participated in
the organization of many rehabilitation programs. He is a past president
of the Vancouver Rotary, and was
president of the American Association of Workers for the Blind, Inc.
He is a resident of Vancouver.
SWIFT AUTHORITY
Also to receive honorary Doctor of
Laws degrees are Prof. H. J. Davis of
Oxford, a leading authority on English author and satirist Jonathan
Swift, and Prof. Doris B. Saunders,
Associate Professor of English at the
University of Manitoba.
Miss Saunders is cited for her
guidance and counsel to university
women through the  years.
Prof. Davis will address the congregation on May 22.
Corporations and individuals
financial assistance to education
of a free society.
This was the message given by
Chancellor-elect Dr. A. E. (Dal)
Grauer to UBC graduates and special
guests from government and business
at the annual meeting of the Alumni
Association last month.
"It would be unfortunate if the
youth of Canada came to regard the
government as the sole provider of
the way to higher things," he said.
" Dr. Grauer outline plans for the
UBC Capital Gifts Campaign which
will seek at least .$5 millions to help
finance buildings urgently needed to
keep up with growths in enrolment
and the demands of an expanding
economy for university graduates.
"Although businesses are not responsible for education, they have
the same interest as governments in
seeing that an adequate supply of
well educated people of all kinds
come out of our universities," he said.
$25,000,000 NOT ENOUGH
In addition to the $5 million from
the campaign, the university expects
to get $10 million in grants from the
provincial government over the next
ten years, $5 million in provincial
grants matching private donations and
$5 million in federal government
money through the Canada Council.
"Even this ($25 million in all) will
not be enough, but it will at least
let us do the main things that need
to be done," he said.
Immediate needs for buildings on
the UBC campus, totalling $28,120,-
000, are listed below.
ALUMNI SET PACE
Dr. Grauer called on the alumni
to "set the pace" for the campaign.
"We know what you have already
done as undergraduates in providing
facilities    at   the    University   which
should  recognize   that  in  giving
they are reinforcing the structure
most other universities have obtained
through other channels.
"If we alumni, knowing the need,
will set the example in generous
giving, I am confident that our appeal
to industry and the public will succeed."
UBC, which first opened its doors
in 1915, had hardly recovered from
the First Wbrld War when it was hit
by the depression of the 1930's and
by the Second World War, he told
the meeting.
SOUND BUSINESS
"As far as plant and facilities are
concerned, therefore, UBC never
really got established in the same
fashion as most other universities.
Plans for permanent buildings were
abandoned in favor of temporary
ones. Temporary buildings became
semi-permanent.
"It is sound and accepted business
practice to keep plant and facilities
right up to date. The University is
lagging considerably behind in this
respect and has catching up to do as
well as expansion to meet.
"There are, for instance, 300 army
huts still in full use at the University. Permanent dormitory accommodation is most inadequate, consisting
of four units housing 225 young
women.
"The Faculty of Medicine, organized at the request of the people of
the province through the Provincial
Legislature, is still occupying huts on
the campus.
"The College and Faculty of Education, which is responsible for all
teacher training in the province, occupies temporary frame buildings
erected in a hurry."

Editorial
UBC goes to people
"It is yours" is the literal translation of "Tuum Est" the motto of
the University of British Columbia. It is a provincial university; it
belongs to the people of British Columbia.
The University is not merely a place for the citizens of British
Columbia to go to get higher education, it is your university and it
will come to you. UBC is firmly committed to the philosophy that
education starts at birth and continues all through life. It is committed to the policy of providing educational services that will enable
all who wish to do so to develop their abilities to the maximum.
The University Department of Extension under the direction of
Dr. John K. Friesen serves as a channel through which the varied resources of the University are made available to everyone in the Province who wish to make use of them.
The Extension Department attempts to help both management
and labor keep pace with the technological revolution going on
around us. Courses are designed to help a man "do a better job or
do a job better" whether it be accounting, cattle ranching, teaching,
fishing, directing a pre-school centre or supervising fire prevention in
a logging camp.
It is also concerned with helping people broaden their horizons
and to use and enjoy the increased leisure time now available
through art, music, drama, literature or community service activities.
The current annual report of the extension department points out
in a few simple statistics how this job has been done in the past year.
One or more short courses were conducted in 32 communities outside
the Greater Vancouver area. More than 75,000 people in local
groups throughout the province heard university speakers. More than
21,000 books, 14,000 films and 8,000 records were loaned out.
More than 3000 people attended non-credit evening classes and more
than 1300 studied credit courses by correspondence or evening class
lectures.
Through art classes in Kamloops, drama classes in Prince Rupert,
fisheries courses in the Queen Charlottes or municipal administration
courses in Vancouver, the Extension Department is bringing the
University to the people.
Letters to the editor
Name correction
Editor, UBC Reports:
Although I appreciate very much
the space you gave to the Art Gallery
in your last issue, I think I ought to
point out that the Chapter of the
IODE which contributes so much to
the Gallery is the University Chapter, not the University Hill Chapter.
B. C. Binning,
Curator

Hong Kong likes UBC
Editor, UBC Reports:
I would just like to add how much
I appreciate receiving "UBC Reports". It is always interesting to
read of the progress of one's home
University. In addition there are
quite a few Hong Kong students attending UBC, and many others enquiring from me how to be accepted.
UBC holds great respect in the eyes
of Hong Kong students.
Incidentally, President Mackenzie
just arrived a few days ago on his
tour of the Far East.
Rev. W. L. Burnham,
Hong Kong.
No such person
Editor, UBC Reports:
We have "UBC Reports" addressed
to Henry R. Christie, B.A.Sc., 49,
R.R. 1, Fanny Bay, B.C. No such
person here.
It may be in error for Robert L.
Christie, our son. He is listed among
missing grads, so we shall bring his
dossier up to date . . .
He is employed by Geological
Survey of Canada, for whom he has
worked before and since graduation.
In 1954 he was geologist on an
expedition to north end of Ellesmere
Island, under Mr. Kingsley-Smith of
England. This summer he will work
in the Arctic again, with Mr. Kingsley-Smith, leaving around May 1.
He has won M^A.Sc. at University
of Toronto, and is currently working
toward Ph.D.
He was married in 1954 to Miss
Audrey Koehler of Toronto, a graduate in Architecture at U. of T. They
have a son,  Michael.
Herbert R.  Christie.
Editor's Note: This is the kind of
letter we appreciate receiving. News
of graduates is always welcome.
Drugs advance
Pharmacy developing
new teaching programs
UBC's Faculty of Pharmacy, now in its
eleventh year, is the youngest in Canada. It
is deeply imbued with the philosophy characteristic of UBC: acceptance of responsibility for
teaching, research and direct service to community. Rapid advances in all of the health
sciences are creating new drugs (and greater
responsibilities for pharmacists) at an ever-
increasing rate. The development and expansion of hospital and health insurance schemes
is putting new demands on pharmacists, particularly in the area of hospital pharmacy.
Practising pharmacists need refresher courses
to keep up to date in a rapidly expanding field.
These are some of the problems and respon- A- w- Mattnews
sibilities of a vigorous faculty of pharmacy. In this issue of UBC
Reports, Dean A. W. (Whit) Matthews tells how UBC is accepting
that responsibility:
By A. W. MATTHEWS
Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy
The Faculty of Pharmacy's main responsibility to its professional
community is to provide the minimum basic training for the practice
of retail pharmacy. At least 80 per cent of the young people
who will graduate in Canadian schools of pharmacy this May will
soon be serving the public in neighborhood and downtown drug
stores in urban centres and in the towns and villages across Canada.
Not only must the curriculum be     drugs in 1936 our materia medica has
grown and continues to grow so
rapidly that the busy physician has
neither the time nor the opportunity
to keep abreast of the new drugs
themselves, to say nothing of the
various dosage forms in which each
is presented, their stability, brand
names, and other factors which will
influence the choice of drug.
In UBC's model pharmacy, where
students work under conditions simulating those of actual practice, they
become familiar with a newly developed system of classifying and filing
information in order that it may be
produced at a moment's notice when
it is required.
broadly based on the sciences but.
since the successful retail pharmacist
must combine, in an unique manner,
the duties of a professional man and
the activities of a business man, there
must also be emphasis on accounting
methods and other aspects of commerce. In this latter* respect the
young faculty at UBC is in the van
in the present-day trend toward
greater stress in the area of pharmacy administration.
UBC's pharmacy staff also has
taken an active part in developing the
growing concept of the pharmacist
as a consultant to the physician on
drugs.   Since the advent of the sulfa
Hospital pharmacy important
During the relatively few years
that graduates in pharmacy have
been going out from UBC, the need
for an organized pharmacy service in
hospitals has been growing in the
United States and Canada at a pace
beyond the personnel resources of
the profession. Nowhere is this more
in evidence than in British Columbia
under the BCHIS plan. This need is
thrusting new responsibilities on and
posing new problems for the Faculty
of Pharmacy.
A new option in hospital pharmacy administration is being provided
at the undergraduate level and a
plan for hospital pharmacy internships in leading teaching hospitals
will be initiated in lune of this year.
It is probable that a combination of
such internships with additional class
work at the graduate level will follow soon. During the period of the
internship, a member of the faculty
staff will collaborate with the Chief
Pharmacist in the hospital in the direction of the student's program,
which will include close observation
and study of the administrative policies of the hospital, accounting procedures, inventory control and budget. A primary objective of such
training is to provide well-trained
pharmacists for other hospitals which
are not equipped to handle pharmacy
internships.
The Faculty of Pharmacy has an
active research program in the fields
of pharmaceutics, physical pharmacy,
pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacognosy and pharmacology. Plans are
well  advanced  for  starting  graduate
instruction in at least two of these
fields. Support for present research
is being received from the Canadian
Foundation for the Advancement of
Pharmacy and from the National Research Council.
A refresher course for pharmacists
in practice is assisted financially by
the Canadian Foundation for the Advancement of Pharmacy and is a
combined effort of the Faculty and
the Pharmaceutical Association of
B.C. During this present academic
session an evening symposium was
held in Vancouver and as soon as the
term ends a series of one-day refresher programs will begin in other
districts of the Province. During
March and April a series of twelve
lectures was arranged through the
UBC Department of Extension.
These lectures have been very well
attended and will become, it is hoped,
the first of an annual series.
Festival Society
gives scholarships
Applications for scholarships to
UBC Summer School and Festival of
the Arts are now being received by
the Extension Department.
The Vancouver Festival Society
has donated $2500 for scholarships
this year. Other scholarships and bursaries are also available.
Last year 60 students received
various scholarships and bursaries to
attend fine arts courses, during the
summer. May, 1957

new tolerance theory
"If you can't beat them, join them," is the principle indicated
in the findings of a UBC medical research team which has confirmed a promising theory of tolerance to virus disease.
A  research  group  headed  by  Dr.
Virus researcher studies        CONFERENCE TO STUDY AGING
PROBLEMS FROM ALL ASPECTS
Canada's first major conference on the needs and problems of
the aging will be held at UBC May 14 to 17.
Louis Kuplan, executive secretary,
citizens' advisory committee on aging,
State of California, and Mrs. Barbara Schenfield, former chairman,
advisory and welfare services of the
Birmingham council for old people,
will be featured speakers at the conference.
HEALTH, HOUSING
The conference, sponsored by the
University arid the Community Chest
and Council of Greater Vancouver,
will deal with problems of health,
employment, housing, and use of leisure time as they affect the aging.
Dr. Sydney M. Friedman, head of
UBC's Anatomy Department, and
noted researcher on diseases of the
aging, and Dr. Leonard C. Marsh,
professor of Social Work, will give
special lectures.
The conference is designed for
volunteer and professional people
who work with the aging.
I. E. Hotchin of the bacteriology
and immunology department found
that the mice in their experiments
became ill and sometimes died from
the violence of the attempts of their
bodies to overthrow a virus which
was in itself harmless.
MENINGITIS VIRUS
The virus used in Dr. Hotchin's
experiments at UBC was a meningitis virus known as LCM, short for
lymphocytic  choriomeningitis.
He found he could prevent the
disease by first destroying the animals'  defence  mechanisms,  either by
large  doses  of X-rays or  of cortisone.
A third way of preventing the disease was to inject the virus into the
mice at birth. The mice accepted the
virus as part of themselves and allowed it to remain, multiplying at
the same rate as their own tissues
instead of making antibodies against
it.
They developed a lifelong tolerance to the virus. Further injections
did no damage.
Not all viruses, however, are of
the kind that are in themselves
harmless.
But mice infected from birth with
LCM had lifelong protection, not
only against later infection from
LCM, but against at least one other
virus which is known to be harmful
in itself.
This appears to be due to an effect
called  the  interference  phenomenon
whereby one virus, as it were, keeps
another one out.
PROTECTIVE VACCINATION
"This protective effect invites speculation on the possibility of using
early infection by a virus, basically
harmless, as a form of protective
vaccination against the same and
other viruses later in life," says Dr.
Hotchin.
"It is, of course, much too early
to assess what, if any, would be the
potentialities of these results for the
prevention of human virus infection.
"However, it can be safely said
that these results open up some extremely interesting avenues for future
exploration in human virus research."
Dr. Hotchin leaves UBC this
month to join the staff of the New
York State Department of Health at
Albany, N.Y., as head of the Virus
Department and assistant director of
the Division of Laboratories and Research.
He has been at UBC for the past
two years.
Brock Hall wing
to be ready May 15
The extension to the Brock Hall
should be ready for occupancy "approximately May 15" says Mr. T. S.
Hughes, superintendent of buildings
and grounds.
The $325,000 addition will provide
space for new alumni offices, student
club rooms (the dance club will have
a studio), barber shop, and college
shop.
But the Brock extension still hasn't
solved the space problem.
"Before it's finished, they realize
it will be too small for their future
needs," Mr. Hughes says. "The students are not giving up any hut
space and have even requested more."
Students from 66
nations at UBC
Approximately 12% of the student
body at UBC comes from outside
Canada.
A total of 933 students represent
66 different countries.
Although officials cannot predict
accurately which students will remain
as immigrants and which will return
to their country of origin, generally
speaking those from Europe will remain  as immigrants.
Those from Central and South
America, the Caribbean, Africa and
Asia will return to their homelands.
Among students from other countries enrolled this year were four
Columbo Plan students from Indonesia, seven stateless Russians from
China, and four students from the
new state of Ghana.
Faculty activities
Assistant Dean of Medicine appointed
Dr. Charles G. Campbell leaves
his private practice of internal medicine to join the Faculty of Medicine
as assistant to Ihe Dean.
He is vice-president of the B.C.
Society for Internal Medicine and
president of the North-West Society
for  Clinical  Research.
In recent years he has been active
in investigating the role of inorganic
salts in health and disease.
UBC lecturer in classics, Kathleen
A. Sutherland, has been awarded a
scholarship to spend the summer at
the American School of Classical
Studies at Athens.
She will spend two months in
Athens before going on to the University of Cincinnati where she has
