' BRITISH PRODUCER Douglas Seale and Miss Myra Benson, Summer Session
publicity director, renewed acquaintances when Mr. Seale arrived at UBC to
direct "The Tempest" for Summer School of Theatre. They met in London in
the spring to discuss preliminary plans for the play which will be presented in
the University auditorium August 13 to 17.
Summer   school   to  feature
Menotti opera, The Tempest
UBC Summer Festival of the Arts reaches its climax in August
when students' handiwork in theatre, music, and arts and crafts is
displayed to the public.
Two short but powerful operas will
be presented as the Summer School
of Opera major production—Aug. 27
to 30.
start at UBC
in September
Plans are being completed for the
affiliation of the Sopron (Hungary)
Forestry Faculty with UBC in September.
The 300 students, faculty members,
wives and children who escaped from
Hungary during the October revolution are now dispersed throughout
the province on summer jobs but
will move to new quarters at the
RCAF Sea Island base Sept. 15.
The Hungarian students will attend lectures and laboratories at UBC
in the late afternoon and evening
taught mostly by their own faculty
and mostly in Hungarian.
They will use English text-books
and will be given some lectures in
English by UBC's Faculty of Forestry
on administration and forest policy.
Dean Kalman Roller and two of his
faculty members, Dr. Sandor Jablan-
czy and Dr. Ferenc Tusko have spent
the summer on the campus making
preparations for the fall re-opening
of the faculty.
Students will perform in the Vancouver premiere of 'The Medium", a
two act opera by Gian-Carlo Menotti,
and in "Gianni Schicchi", a one act
comedy opera by Giacomo Puccini.
Both operas will be conducted by
Nicholas Goldschmidt, director of
music for the Summer School, with
members of the Vancouver Symphony.
They will be staged by Robert Gill,
director of Hart House Theatre, Toronto.
The University Chorus of 150
voices will be heard in a concert of
Sacred Music Aug. 12.
The Summer School of Theatre
major drama production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" will be given
August 13 to 17.
The play, which is directed by
Douglas Seale, will feature leading
B.C. actors in the major roles.
A two-day exhibition of work by
students of the Summer School of
Arts and Crafts will be held August
10 and 11 in the new crafts studio at
Youth Training Centre on the campus.
Enrolment in UBC's Summer
School of the Arts courses which include music, drama, arts and crafts,
and a variety of short courses with
subjects ranging from driver education to museum operation, is expected
to reach 900, an increase of more than
250 over last year.
A total of 3502 students are taking
regular Summer Session credit courses
this year. Last year 1810 students registered for credit courses.
Grads to set pace

buildings added
to campus
Construction of theological colleges
and federal government laboratories
is moving apace with other building
development on the University of
B.C. campus.
St. Andrew's Hall, the new Presbyterian Theological College containing
residence accommodation for 40 students and being built at a cost of
$280,000, is expected to be completed
by Oct. 15.
Construction of St. Mark's College
(Roman Catholic) started in July with
August 1958 set as a target date for
completion. It is being built at a cost
of $500,000 and will contain residence
accommodation for 48 students.
Officials of the Baptist Church have
told the University that it is their intention to build a college on the campus area reserved for them, although
plans have not been started.
The Federal Forest Products Laboratory, a $1,000,000 project nearing
completion, is expected to be opened
early next year.
The Federal Department of Public
Works is expected to announce
momentarily the awarding of the contract for construction of the Technological Station for the Fisheries Research Board of Canada at an
estimated $675,000.
Third federal building planned for
the campus, the $2,000,000 Science
Services Laboratory for the Department of Agriculture, is nearing the
completion of working drawings.
A preliminary report on the estimated space requirements of all University faculties and departments up
to 1972 is in the hands of a president's
advisory committee. Final report is
expected by the end of August.
Completion of the new development plan for the campus, including
(Please turn to page 4)
The campaign objective is $5,000,-
000 which the provincial government
has offered to match for capital construction and development on the
campus. An appeal will be made to
business and industry, to friends of
the University and to the public. The
official campaign period will be January, February and March, 1958, but
pace-setting gift solicitation will be
made in October and November.
The alumni will be the first on the
firing line, since the entire proceeds
of the Annual Giving Program this
year will be devoted to the Capital
Gifts Campaign. Since its inception in
1949, when 1,452 alumni participated,
to last year when nearly 4,000 contributed, annual giving has raised
$376,924 for the University.
In recent years many friends of the
University have contributed through
annual giving but alumni have been
the main support of the program.
Alumni participation has grown
steadily over the years, reaching its
highest point in 1956 when 3,903 contributed amounts ranging from $3 to
"It is our hope that all alumni will
participate this year because of the
special appeal", says Harry Purdy,
president of the Alumni Association.
"I appeal to every alumnus to raise
the sights on this year's giving. We
who know the need must show the
way. Let's not think in terms of our
usual contribution but two, three, five
times if possible."
The appeal to alumni will be in the
mail about mid-September and it will
be followed wherever possible by
personal canvass. More than 200
alumni have expressed their willingness to assist in the Capital Gifts
Campaign and many of them will be
asked to take part in this first phase.

Climate for the arts
British Columbia is becoming noted for its "climate for the arts".
The ferment and the excitement present in a province which is expanding more rapidly than any other in both population and development of natural resources is also evident in the cultural development
of B.C.
The beautiful physical setting of mountains against ocean, almost
year round greenery and a climate without extremes in temperature
perhaps provide a favorable atmosphere for artistic development.
An area that produced North America's most advanced Indian arts
and crafts can be expected to develop a high level of artistic talent
and appreciation once the early stages of exploration and exploitation
of physical resources are completed and people have more leisure
Whatever the cause we have ample evidence of the effects. We see
it in the stragglings of symphony societies, art galleries, and many
drama groups. We see it in the Community Arts Council, Theatre
Under the Stars and Friends of Chamber Music. And we see it in the
distinctive and attractive west coast architecture and the development
of crafts and creative writing.
Local and provincial groups for years have nurtured the development of music, drama and the fine arts on the west coast. When they
look beyond their own immediate problems, often largely financial,
they see a bright horizon. They, by their efforts have created an interested audience and have helped to support the talented artists through
leaner years. They have created a climate for the arts and a widespread feeling that now British Columbia can turn more of its bubbling energy and enthusiasm to cultural development.
Perhaps the most significant single cultural influence in the region
is the University of British Columbia. Its School of Architecture is
an important contributor to an advanced architectural environment.
Both professional and amateur theatre benefit from its long tradition
of interest and activity in drama. The Summer School of the Arts
has in recent years become a major focal point for Canadian music,
drama and the fine arts in the summer months. B.C.'s summer audience and the fact that many talented musicians, actors and artists
like to spend the summer months in a place with a climate and natural
setting such as ours have made it possible for the University to
sponsor summer opera, theatre and art exhibits of high calibre.
All of. this activity will be brought to a focus in the summer of
1958 by the Vancouver Festival of the Arts. The Festival Society has
arranged a program of drama, opera, symphony, chamber music,
jazz, musical comedy, film and art exhibits to rank with the world's
major festivals of the arts.

Editor, UBC Reports:
In your lune issue, Dr. W. C. Gibson briefly outlined a research project being carried out into the etiology
and treatment of schizophrenia. He
wrote "UBC's ultraconservative scientists in the Department of Neurological Research look to the test tube

for clues as to the true nature of the
A biochemical approach to the
study of schizophrenia is entirely
legitimate and has been pursued for
several decades. But to state in such
partisan fashion that the biochemical
rather than the psychological approach is going to give us the answers
is begging the etiological and therapeutic questions.
The majority of psychiatrists would
agree that in research into schizophrenia several disciplines may be
expected to play important parts.
These would include clinical psychiatry, dynamic psychology, physiology,
biochemistry, endoctrinology, sociology and anthropology as well as others.
The broader the approach, the
greater the chance of coming up with
significant findings.

in fisheries research
Director, Institute of Fisheries
No university in Canada pays so much attention
to fisheries as the University of British Columbia.
Since fisheries are a valuable resource to the
province it is not surprising that the University's
program would reflect such an important community interest. Nevertheless, interest in fisheries
on the campus is so extensive that one might
wonder how and why it came to be that way and
what prospects the future holds for continuing and expanding this
type of work.
British Columbia is almost in the
centre of one of the most intensively
managed fisheries areas in the world.
Though the catch of fish off the west
coast of North America is exceeded
in many parts of the world, no area
can claim such a broad understanding of its fisheries, nor such an advanced and informed management.
Four international commissions
operate on the west coast, two of them
in British Columbia. At New Westminster the International Pacific Salmon Fisheries Commission regulates
the catch of Sockeye and Pink Salmon
of the Fraser River. The offices of the
International North Pacific Fisheries
Commission, which is responsible for
investigation of North Pacific stocks
of fish, are on the University of
British Columbia campus. Each of the
Pacific coast states, British Columbia
and Alaska, has a fisheries department
that employs a substantial staff of
scientists.   Finally,   both   the  United
States Federal Government and the
Government of Canada support large
research and investigation establishments for fisheries work.
In Canada, regulation of marine
fisheries is a federal responsibility
and accordingly there is a well-organized federal department with a large
divisional headquarters on the Pacific
Coast. In every respect the West Coast
is equipped to do a modern job of
fisheries management.
The focus for fisheries work on the
campus is the Institute of Fisheries.
There, work most closely related to
fisheries management is organized and
directed. Courses are offered in the
biology of fishes, population biology,
and other fields of biology that concern fisheries science. Greatest emphasis is placed on study at the graduate level and there are at present
twenty graduate students engaged in
research on problems that relate to
Fine Museum Collection
An outstanding feature of the Institute's work is the fine museum collection of fishes that has been built up
largely through the sustained and
enthusiastic interest of Dr. H. R.
MacMillan. The collection is one of
the finest on the Pacific Coast.
An equally important function of
the Institute is organized liaison with
other departments whose special fields
of study have important application
to fisheries. The Pacific Fisheries Experimental Station offers assistance in
teaching fisheries technology. The
University's Faculty of Engineering
provides training in hydraulics, particularly with respect to engineering
problems in fisheries construction
work. The University is fortunate in
having an Institute of Oceanography
where students of fisheries can obtain
extensive training in the physics,
chemistry and biology of the sea.
Similarly, the Department of Physics
and Chemistry and Geology at the University and workers in other fields of
science are all available to assist in
the solution of scientific problems of
fisheries management.
Of course, not all the problems of
fisheries are in the field of the physical and biological sciences. For many
fisheries, economic factors may greatly
outweigh the significance of biological
problems. International law has in
recent years become an important
facet of regulation of marine fisheries. The modernization of fishing industries in various parts of the world
has involved serious problems of
sociology. Each of these related fields
—economics, law and sociology, has
been the subject of a series of seminars given by staff members 'of the
respective university departments.
Similarly the School of Commerce for
several years has provided students
a fisheries option encouraging an
interest in the business of fisheries.
It is hoped that attention to all of
these essentially social problems will
be maintained and expanded in the
Concentration of specialties
The interest of the University in
fisheries is reflected in research work
as well as staff training. Three staff
members and twenty graduate students in the Department of Zoology
are engaged in research on fisheries
problems in the field of physiology,
systematics of fish-power problems
using funds provided from a grant of
$50,000 by the Western Development
and  Power  Corporation.
Research in fisheries problems is
also carried on in the Faculty of Engineering, chiefly in connection with
fish-power problems and the engineering problems of fish ladder construction.
In the Department of Biology several research projects relate to man's
use of marine algae as well as the
general field of marine biological
Even the Faculty of Agriculture
has research with a fisheries twist.
Experimental studies in nutrition of
poultry have largely employed fish
meals as a source of protein.
With such a diversity of interest
and support from those outside the
University, fiisheries work on the
campus is assured of the constant
stimulation so necessary to continued
and productive activity. August, 1957

Wide interest
displayed in
Players' tour
' The Univesity of B.C. brought a
taste of the theatre to a dozen centres
throughout the province when the
Players Club presented Shakespeare's
Twelfth Night in modern dress on its
annual  spring  tour.
Each centre provided a sponsoring group — usually the PTA or a
service club — which arranged advance publicity, made a theatre available, looked after billets and entertained the cast.
The Players attracted good houses
almost everywhere they went, sometimes playing in the afternoon to audiences brought in from high schools
in the surrounding districts and in
the evening to adults.
Ian Thorne, Vancouver actor-playwright, directed the cast of 20 in his
unique interpretation of Shakespeare's
The UBC  Players Club  made  its
first  tour  of  the  province  in   1920,
five years after its founding by Prof.
Frederic Wood.
The purpose was to give members
of the Club as wide and varied an
audience as possible, and to show
towns outside Vancouver some of the
theatrical work being done at UBC.
Since then the spring tour has become an annual event, and the
Players Club is one of the oldest
dramatic organizations to have sustained activity in Canada.
Each year members of the touring
company are "ambassadors" of the
university meeting and talking with
high school students about courses
and dramatic activities at UBC.

Fraser River model
saves  dollars  for  taxpayers
Every year some 500 freighters
sail in and out of New Westminster,
the major fresh-water port on the
West Coast of Canada. To maintain
a navigation channel deep enough to
accommodate the deep-sea vessels,
the approach to the docks must be
dredged every year. It is an expensive
Recently a solution to the engineering problem of keeping the depth of
the channel at the right elevation was
reached through studies made at the
Univesity's Fraser River Model.
This is an example of the important role in engineering reseach the
Fraser River Model has taken on
since it was started nine years ago
by the National Research Council of
Canada in co-operation with the
Technically known as an hydraulic
erodible-bed tidal river model, it has
its own circulating water system and
can be drained when necessary.
The model, one of the largest of
its kind in the world, reproduces the
whole of the Fraser River estuary
including all subsidiary channels and
extends upstream to the limit of tide
water which in nature is 56 miles
from the river mouth.
It is situated in a four-acre clearing immediately north of the University arboretum.
In addition to the Fraser River
Model the University maintains a
modern hydraulic laboratory located
in the Engineering building which is
also made available to industry for
research projects.
A portion of the Kootenay River
has been reconstructed in the lab to
study the effect of scour around the
base of a bridge pier and bank erosion
that might occur with the building of
the new highway bridge four miles
below the Creston ferry crossing.
A model of one of the Bridge
River intake towers is also being
built in the laboratory for hydraulic
studies being made for the B.C. Engineering Company.
Both the Fraser River Model and
the hydraulic laboratory are being
used for studies of the four-lane Deas
Island tunnel under construction near
A replica of the tunnel has been
installed in the Fraser River Model to
determine what effect the tunnel will
have on the bed and banks of the
Fraser River.
Another model of the tunnel has
been constructed in a glass-sided flume

Edward S. Pretious, Professor in
the department of civil engineering,
is director of both the Fraser River
Model and the hydraulic laboratory
Though enthusiastic about achievements from a purely technical viewpoint, Prof. Pretious says, "The
