Presidents Annual Report
Urges More Student Aid
President Norman A. M. Mac
Kenzie urges the establishment
of   a   "comprehensive   national
>  scholarship program as imaginatively designed as was the Veterans' Educational Aid program"
in   his  report  for   the   1953-54
academic year,
v      "To maintain the present rate
of Canadian development," says
the President, "Canadian Universities must meet  the need  for
^.the- vastly increased numbers of
professionally trained and well-
educated men and women that
our complex society and complicated   technology   have    made
necessary.   We must meet this
need or slow down the rate of
..development."
*  -   "We are not meeting the need
«,   now/' the President continues,
■'■  "an4 we are also not yet getting
all those in the high schools who
are' iwst  equipped   for   higher
education."
The report indicates that 1600

Distinguished Educators
To Teach Summer Session
Columbia's 5500 students in
1953-54 shared $450,000 in
prizes, scholarships, bursaries
and loans supplied by industry,
commerce, voluntary associations, private individuals and
government.
Dr. MacKenzies emphasizes,
however, that University of B.C.
students are continuing the
tradition of "working their way"
through the University. Costs of
their education plus the loss of
four to six years of earning
power makes the average student's total investment in education more than $10,000.
Reporting on student housing,
the President points out that
about half of UBC's student body
comes from outside Vancouver.
Present housing accommodates
about 1000 students from outside the city with Fort and
Acadia Camps providing places
for some 870 single men and
women and suites for about 160
couples and families.

Graduates
Students trained in electrical
engineering, chemical engineering,  physics  have been  in  the

been quickly placed.
"The situation has been particularly good this year," said McLean, "because the number oi
graduates is smaller than in*^he
past few years, when we had
large 'veteran' classes." Very
few 1955 graduates are still unplaced, although a few women
with arts degrees are still looking for positions.
McLean also disclosed that
slimmer employment opportunities are keeping up to the pattern of previous years. Many
students are being employed in
lumbering, mining, pulp and
paper industries, summer resorts
and in forest protection.
"We are, hopeful that the majority of.students who are willing to go put of town and who

Veteran Skipper Teaching
In Fisheries Extension
A veteran of 4«8 years on
square-rigged sailing ships,
tramp steamers and liners. Captain James F. Patrick, retired,
has never lost his love of the
sea and ships. He was up bright
and early Monday morning,
April 4, fpr another trip north
to the BC. mainland and Vancouver Island settlements — to
teach navigation to camps of
Indian fishermen.
On this trip Capt. Patrick
is visiting Bella-Bella, Alert Bay
and Quathiaski Cove, returning
to Vancouver at the end of the
month. His pupils in navigation
and seamanship—and he stresses
"rules of the road" for mariners
—are nearly all Indian fishermen, who work from camps pn
the coast and on the west side
of   Vancouver  Island.
Capt. Patrick's 'classes' in navigation are co-sponsored by the
University Extension Department and B.C. Packers. He
taught elementary navigation
courses to fisheries' students at
the annual Youth Training
School held on campus from
January to early March.
APPRENTICED  EARLY
The veteran mariner began
his sea career at 15, wfaen he
was apprenticed for four years.
He left the sea 48 years later
as a master mariner who had
commanded the plush Empress
of Canada and the Empress of
Russia.
He served as an officer aboard
the Empress of Asia, the Empress of Japan, the Errraress of
Australia and the Empress of
France. In his early days he and
his crew were shipwrecked off
Cape Horn for 42 days.
For nine years after his retirement Capt. Patrick acted as an
examiner for the Federal Department of Transport, which issues
Masters' and Mates' certificates.
He is still called into marine
enquiries as a nautical assessor
when the government wishes to
determine the cause of a ship
collision.
