Dental report
urges faculty
The early establishment of a Faculty of Dentistry at the University of
British Columbia was recommended
by Dr. John B. Macdonald in a 105
page report of dental education recently published by the university.
Dr. Macdonald is Chairman of the
Division of Dental Research, Faculty
of Dentistry, University of Toronto,
and Consultant in Dental Education
to the University of B.C.
He estimated that capital costs for
a Faculty of Dentistry would be about
$1,750,000 and that net annual operating costs would reach $280,000 per
year by the time the first class in
dentistry graduated.
Dr. Macdonald recommended an
annual graduating class of 40 dental
students plus an annual class of 20
dental hygienists to meet the present
need for dentists in British Columbia.
SERIOUS SHORTAGE
"There is clearly a serious shortage
of dentists in Canada. The population
has increased by five million since
the last of Canada's five dental schools
was fully organized in 1926", he says
in his report. There have been no
dental schools organized since that
date, 1926.
"There   is   an   acute   shortage   of
dentists in the rural areas of British
Columbia.   The  average  annual  increase (of dentists) is only thirteen—

faculty was added this summer with
Faculty of Commerce and Business
Prof. E. D. MacPhee, Honorary
Bursar of the University and formerly
Director of the School of Commerce
has been promoted to the post of
Dean of the new faculty.
Dean MacPhee came to UBC in
1950 to head the newly formed school
of commerce in the faculty of arts
and science and in the past six years
has expanded the teaching of commerce to its present status.
CANADA'S LARGEST
The newly formed faculty has the
largest enrolment in commerce and
business administration in Canada
and is the third largest faculty on the
UBC campus. This year 530 students
were registered for the Bachelor of
Commerce degree.
A graduate of Acadia University
and a veteran of World War 1, Dean
MasPhee taught psychology in Acadia,
Alberta and Toronto Universities after
graduate work at the University of
Edinburgh. In 1929 he became Comptroller of the York Knitting Mills.
From 1930 to 1950 Dean MacPhee
became involved in a variety of business and industrial activities in Canada
and England. He became Chairman,
President or Managing Director of
operating companies in textiles, leather
goods, aircraft and chemicals. He
helped to form and was Director of
two firms of industrial consultants,
J. D. Woods Co. (now J. D. Woods
and Gordon of Toronto) and Production Engineering of London, England.
TRAINING ON THE JOB
In addition to the regular classes for
B.Com. degree students, the former
School of Commerce developed programs for certificate-granting bodies,
whose members are "training-on-the-
job".

Annual report reaffirms
UBC's open door policy
The University of B.C. will continue to open its doors to any
person in the province who can profit by a university education,
President N. A. M. MacKenzie says in his tenth annual report.
In a novel annual report which studies the trends of University
development of over past ten years in office, President Mackenzie
outlines the policies and plans underlying the growth of the University and indicates the direction in which the University is heading
in the next ten years. *
He describes recent developments at UBC as "the beginning of a
substantial development in the variety of teaching and research
activities—a development that is likely to continue for a long time
to come.
"Since 1945 we have added the Faculties of Law, Medicine,
Forestry, Pharmacy and Graduate Studies. We have added courses,
staff and research facilities, professional schools and institutes."
TWO PRINCIPLES the president has followed in the development
of the university are repeated in his report: "I remain fully committed
to the principle of making higher education generally available to
as many people as are able to profit by it. I also believe that universities must combine tradition with flexibility."
Speaking of the purpose of the University Dr. MacKenzie list three
basic areas of endeavor: "teaching, research, and service to the
community appropriate to an academic institution."
In the section of the report dealing with the faculty of Graduate
Studies, he says, "The time has now come to pursue a vigorous
program of development in graduate work, without sacrifiicing any
of the standards and reputation we have achieved."
"So far the general policy facilitating graduate work has been
deliberately conservative. Our first concern has been to maintain
high standards. The standing which our students have achieved
suggests that our caution was wise in the circumstances.
"I hope we can achieve a better balance between the opportunities
for graduate instruction and faculty research in the physical sciences
and humanities, or the biological and the social sciences."
In his report, Dr. MacKenzie expresses the hope that by 1975
"we shall have enough permanent buildings to replace all of the
huts we now occupy." There are still some 300 temporary huts
used for lecture and laboratory space on the campus.
"Last year we received and spent over $6,000,000. Ten years ago
our budget was about $800,000. During those years the costs of
living and learning have risen steadily and steeply. Within that
period our student body, leaving aside the veteran enrolment, has
almost tripled.
"In 1944-45 we spent just over $15,000 on research, last year
we spent half a million. During the next ten years we hope to
and must spend even more".
OUTLINING PLANS for the next ten years Dr. MacKenzie says,
"We shall continue to provide for any and every person in this
province who seeks a university education and has the qualifications
necessary for admission. We shall continue to maintain a balance
between general and professional education, undergraduate teaching
and graduate work and research, between extramural and intramural
enrolment.
"The fairly immediate future will, in addition, bring new developments in the following general areas: the arts, the social sciences,
professional and graduate training and residential life.
"Music and the fine arts deserve a larger and more formal place
in the curriculum of the Faculty of Arts and Science. As our fields
of professional training expand to include dentistry, physiotherapy
and others, so must our resources for graduate work in the 'pure'
sciences and the humanities."
Commerce faculty
benefits community
By E. D. MacPHEE
Dean of the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
The organization of the tenth Faculty in the University of British
Columbia, under the name "Commerce and Business Administration"
has been noted elsewhere in this issue. "Commerce" was started as
"Commerce" courses, within the Department of Economics, less than
thirty years ago, was organized as a separate "Department" in 1939,
and a "School" in 1950. The governing bodies of the University
created this separate Faculty in May, 1956.
This   evolution,   in   form,   of   the     	
administrative unit is, of course, of
primary concern within the University, but its formation has been of
interest to the professional and business friends of the University. The
School of Commerce has grown in
size until it was the largest of its
kind in Canada; Bachelor of Commerce students were the third largest
degree body on the campus. The
School had developed into a professional school and its program had,
therefore, diverged so far from that
of the Faculty of Arts and Science
that this body could not be expected
to supervise and evaluate the program.
In addition, a Diploma Division had
been created in response to demands
by practising accountants, sales managers, municipal officials and other
professional groups whose requirements were even further removed
from the traditional Arts pattern.
These were the factors which led the
Senate and Board of Governors to
remove the School from the Faculty
of Arts and Science.
The status of "Faculty" is not
lightly given in Canadian universities,
particularly in a discipline, or group
of disciplines, as young as those comprised in Commerce and Business
Administration. This is evidenced by
the fact that only Western University
and Laval have been so recognized.
Status implies responsibility
Acceptance of the larger unit implies a responsibility on the part of
the teaching staff - to achieve and
maintain a status in teaching, scholarship and research comparable to that
of the traditional Faculties. This is
a high goal to achieve in this University, but it is entirely fair and
proper that those acdemic colleagues
who have agreed to this status should
expect efforts to be intensified in
these directions.
The undergraduate program will be
practically unchanged. The School
was fortunate enough to grow to
maturity in close and constructive
association with Dean Chant and the
Faculty of Arts and Science, It was
under that body that the five-year
program was initiated—an arrangement . which contributed much more
than an extra year of education. It
enabled the staff of the School to
plan a program with three objectives
in mind. In the first place, it was
possible to insist that approximately
three years should be spent in the
study of the humanities and the social
and physical sciences. This pattern
had been accepted substantially by
medicine, law and engineering and
commerce could follow suit. This plan
will be continued.
Through the years a number of
commerce courses have been developed of proven intellectual worth,
and these have been prescribed as a
common "core" for all B.Com. students, e.g., commercial law, finance,
marketing, industrial organizations.
Time was still available to follow
the Harvard tradition and to provide
a range of courses of increasing complexity in which students could "concentrate in depth" in one area of
business. This is the origin of the
now well-known "Options", or specialist programs.
Graduate work to expand
The Faculty will continue to provide Diploma and Certificate courses
to meet the needs of professionals
who want to study, on a university
level, while still in employment. The
courses range from introductory to
full professional training; they involve attendance, homework assignments and examinations, over periods
of 3 to 5 years. Over 1,500 men and
women will be registered in these
courses in the coming session.
It was accepted by the School
that no serious effort could be given
to the development of graduate work
(M.B.A. degree) until a strong undergraduate program was established.
The Faculty is now planning to move
into this field. This involves the
collection of substantial reference
materials and equipment, the development of research and support by
industry through fellowships and grad
uate scholarships. Increasing cooperation will be achieved with the
professional bodies allied to the Faculty. Inter-faculty research will be
encouraged. A beginning has been
made.
The intellectual climate of the University of British Columbia and the
hearty co-operation of the professional
and business community have enabled
us to grow' into a vigorous young
Faculty, with a fairly clear picture
of the kind of school we should try
to become in the near future. In the
long run, its existence will be justified,
as in the case of any other Faculty,
by its success in developing well-
educated, professional men; by its
progress in research and publication,
and by its contribution to its community in the varied areas of business
administration. August, 1956

(Continued from page 1)
Citizens of British Columbia, not
attending summer school classes are
having excellent opportunities to share
the benefits of UBC's ambitious summer program.
Most controversial feature of the
summer session was the outdoor exhibit of sculpture displayed on the
library lawn by members of the North
West Institute of Sculpture. Student
work in sculpture, painting, ceramics
and metal work were presented in an
exhibition in Brock Hall.
WITCH'S BREW
Summer School of Theatre students
presented three plays. First production
was "The Tinder Box" a children's
fantasy based on a Hans Christian
Anderson story which delighted children with witches, animal characters,
kings and queens, and, of course, the
magic tinder box.
Other drama presentations were
"The Cradle Song which played to
capacity audiences in the Frederic
Wood Theatre and an experimental
production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
Music school presentations, in addition to the opera, included a choral
concert of sacred music and a concert
of opera excerpts.
Three Lieder recitals, five noon-
hour concerts and two radio broadcasts originating from Brock Hall
were contributions of guest artists.
T4 degrees for president
President N. A. M. MacKenzie has

not enough to cope with the annual
population increase.
"British Columbia requires a dental
school immediately to remedy the
present emergency and to cope with
future growth".
A Faculty of Dentistry "would not
result in an overnight solution of the
shortage of dentists but it would provide for growth of population, replacement of dentists through death,
retirement and emigration, and a
modest increase in the dental services
for rural and small urban areas," he
said.
President N. A. M. MacKenzie said
in his preface to the report:
"This report is much more than a
detailed guide to the University of
British Columbia directed toward the
formation of a Faculty of Dentistry.
It is, in our estimation, the most
complete and searching analysis of
dental education presently available.
As such, we are confident that it will
serve as a source of information in
many other centres".
President MacKenzie also said in
his preface: "The recomemndations
made by Dr. Macdonald to the University of British Columbia will have
to be considered in the light of the
over-all educational needs of the
people of this province. It will require
prolonged and intimate study before
implementation."
Dr. Macdonald recommended that
two prerequisites should be met before classes start in dentistry: com-
Cletion of a basic medical sciences
uilding on campus and adequate assurance that funds will be available
to carry out the recommended
program.

This is the working hypothesis of
the University of B.C.'s ever-expanding Extension Department which
provides educational opportunities to
young and old all over the province.
Adult education—life-long learning
—is the business of the Extension
Department. Each year more and
more people are being drawn from
easy chairs and television sets in
search of more learning.
During the past year the number
of back-to-school adults at UBC exceeded 6000.
Courses and programs designed to
fit the needs of business organizations,
art and drama groups, parent-teacher
associations, service clubs and other
groups are planned every year to fit
the needs of every segment of the
community.

Greeting card
proves costly
A Christmas card from Dr. Cecil
A. Lamb of the Ohio Agricultural
Experimental Station in Wooster,
Ohio, to Mr. C. P. Leckie, 5761 Olympic Street, Vancouver, turned into
an expensive proposition this year.
Both graduated from UBC in agriculture in 1921, the first graduating
class of UBC's Faculty of Agriculture,
and they decided to do something
about it.
The "something" they had in mind
for 1956 and their 35th anniversary
was a $10,000 fund, the interest from
which will provide a scholarship in
honor of the University's first class
in agriculture.
These two and the two other known
living members of the class, Dr. F. F.
McKenzie of Oregon State College
and Dr. H. R. L. Davis, 4645 West
Ninth Ave., Vancouver, have presented scholarship committee chairman
Dean Walter H. Gage, with a $1700
cheque to start the fund for a graduate scholarship in agriculture.
A further $600 has been promised
by these graduates and they hope to
be able to build the fund up to the
$10,000'mark. They say that donations to this fund from anyone interested would be greatly appreciated.
Amateurs all
Olympic
oarsmen
training
Twelve University of B.C. amateur
oarsmen are training twice daily on
the  icy  waters  of  Coal  Harbor  to     *
keep  in  condition for  the  Olympic
Games in Australia in November.
At the recent Canadian Olympic
trials UBC'c eight-oared crew, dubbed
the "Cinderella crew" after their
sparkling upset win in the British
Empire Games and defeat of the *"
Russian crew at the Royal Henley
Regatta last year, pulled well in front
to break world rowing records.
Even the four-oared crew, who went
into training originally as spares for    *
the eights, better the Olympic record
for   the   2000  metre   course   by   31
seconds.
UBC's rowing coach Frank Read,
who volunteers his services as coach
because he likes rowing, was named
coach of Canada's Olympic rowing
contingent.
He   attributes   the  success   of   the    •
crews  to  hard  work.    "Conditioning
always pays off," he says.
BLOW  FOR AMATEURS
Even   more   noticeable   than   the     *
rowing   records   they  are   shattering,
however, is the blow they are striking
for amateur sport. •
Every member of the two crews
took up rowing "for fun" or simply
because they liked rowing.
The 12 oarsmen are full time students at UBC, working themselves v
through a university education. They
have given up everything else except
working, studying and rowing, because
they love the sport.
Despite the hardship they ask no
favours and get their rewards from the
results of their rowing.
However, a committee of ex-oarsmen headed by UBC Great Trecker
Aubrey Roberts, has been set up to
assist the crew and ensure they have
adequate training facilities and equipment. ^
Included in the efforts of this committee is a fund raising campaign to
assist in the purchase of a four-oared
shell, new oars, training strip and
other necessities. Contributions may *
be sent to the UBC Development
Fund, Brock Hall, marked rowing.
