Convocation to elect
chancellor, 15 senators
MAIL TIME at Abbotsford RCAF camp is one of mixed emotions for
Hungarian forestry professors, students and their families. Here one family
reads their first mail from home shortly after arriving at their new home
in Canada.
Hungarian forestry school
makes historic trip to B.C.
Dean of the Faculty of Forestry
History is made a university leaves one country and emigrates
to another several thousand miles away.
The Technical University of Hungary at Sopron has done just this.
Its School of Forestry arrived in
British Columbia Jan. 24 and its other
faculties are being establshide in other
Canadian universities.
The Hungarians, including about
200 students (40 of whom are women), 17 faculty members and 65 wives
and children, are being housed at the
Royal Canadian Air Force station at
About mid-February they will go
to Powell River and there continue
their intensive course in English begun
at Abbotsford. In May the students
will seek summer employment to improve their English, to gain experience in B.S.'s forests and to obtain
funds with which to continue their
Move to B.C. .
It is hoped that by September arrangements can be completed to allow
the Sopron School of Forestry to
move to the UBC campus.
It will retain its identity until such
time as integration with the UBC
Faculty of Forestry seems wise and
practical. Until then it will graduate
its students with a diploma equivalent
to the one previously granted in Hungary.
Its graduates will likely find equitable employment in Canada — in
industry, in provincial forest services,
and in the Forestry Branch and
Science Service of Canada.
It is not difficult to view this project with optimism and enthusiasm.
All Canada is short of trained foresters and yet enrolment in the forest
school   is  not  increasing  materially.
An extra 200 graduates spread over
about five years beginning in 1958
should be of substantial help to short-
handed employers.
At the same time, this number will
not be enough to alleviate the shortage completely and there should be
no let-up in the present efforts to
encourage more students to enter the
four Canadian forest schools.
A new Chancellor and fifteen

Welcome Hungarians
We are indeed fortunate in having the faculty and students of
Hungary's only School of Forestry come to Canada. We welcome
them with open arms.
These are the people who jokingly claim the Hungary should
have been awarded ten, not nine, gold medals in the Olympic
Games "because we threw the hammer and sickle the farthest".
These are the people who set up a free govrnmnt in Sopron and
ran the affairs of their city (nicknamed "The Faithful City") during
the Hungarian revolution. They dug in to defensive positions
around their city and retreated across the Austrian border five miles
away only after the onslaught of hordes of Russian tanks made
their cause completely hopeless.
They are a school with perhaps more "school spirit" than we
have ever seen. They were originally an independent forestry school
in northern Hungary until the border changes after the First World
War moved them into Czechoslovakia. So they packed up and
moved to Sopron. When the Treaty of Versailles ceded Sopron to
Austria they were the prime movers behind a local plebiscite which
got them back into Hungary.
They are proud people with a rich heritage and with an intense
desire to learn the way of their new homeland. They bring with them
a student orchestra (minus instruments), a soccer team, tennis
champions, fencers, skiiers. In fact, all that one might expect of an
active student group anywhere.
They come at a time when Canada's forest industry badly needs
talent suoh as they can offer or will be able to offer after they
yearn English and complete their training in forestry. The shortage
of trained foresters is so acute in Canada that even with their
arrival we must not let up in our efforts to recruit more and more
young people for careers in forestry.
Once they learn the ways of our forests and the problems created
by vast sizes and distances, they, with their different background
and earlier training may bake valuable contributions that no one
else could make. Their approach to conservation problems alone,
could in ten or twenty years time make us extremely grateful for
their presence.
Yes, we welcome them with open arms, and hearts. Let us try
as hard to understand them and help them with their problems
of adjustment to a completely foreign way of life as they are trying
to understand us and learn to take their places as valuable citizens
in our midst.
Letters to the editor
Poor traveller
Editors, UBC Reports:
. . . Quality of paper might be better. It (UBC Reports) does not travel
well over long distances.
Dr. G. C. A. Jackson,
Salsbury, S. Rhodesia.
Editor's Note: With this issue, we are
mailing UBC Reports in envelopes to
countries outside Canada and the
United States. Thanks for the comment.
Tax deduction
Editors,  UBC Reports:
Most of the students at universities come from working families,
and sending a person for five years
to a university can become a very
expensive  business.
Why shouldn't we be allowed to
charge some of this expense to income tax expenses?
I have no objection to paying taxes
as such, but I do think some allowance could be made to those parents
who are trying to provide this grand
country of ours with the educated
personnel it apparently needs.

Revelstoke, B.C.
Dental faculty
Editors, UBC Reports:
I was very interested in the dental
report in the August issue of UBC
I yould like to suggest that the
University contact groups in the community, the Vancouver Labor Council for example, that are also interested in establishing a dental faculty
at UBC. With many groups giving
support the government might be
more easily persuaded to do something about it in the not too distant

Medicine flourishes
in scholarly setting
By Dr. John W. Patterson
Dean, of the Faculty of Medicine
Since its inception in 1950 as an integral part of the University
of British Columbia, the Faculty of Medicine has grown and
flourished, stimulated by the invigorating atmosphere of inquiry
in the University, encouraged by the cooperation of practising
physicians, and sustained by the people's interest and confidence
in its efforts. A professional school within the University, this
Faculty relates at once to the University and to the practice of
medicine, playing its role and making its contribution in both areas.
Within the community of scholars     and are often members of a "team
that makes up the University, the
Faculty of Medicine makes its special contribution in the advancement
of medical knowledge through education of medical scientists, teachers
and physicians, and through its programs of original investigation. Receiving through an inter-relationship
with other members of the University
community more than it gives, the
Faculty of Medicine is indebted to
its colleagues in other Faculties. Many
professional groups on this campus
have interests closely linked to those
of the medical faculty, inasmuch as
they too are concerned with the health
of the individual and the community,
working together with the medical
profession in the care of the ill patient. An active association on the
part of the Faculty of Medicine with
the allied professions of nursing, social
service and pharmacy will, it is hoped,
be extended in the not-too-distant
future to the fields of dentistry and
Other professions, too, though not
so intimately involved in health care,
share common problems with the
Faculty of Medicine. Thus, in some
universities inter-professional courses
relating to medicine and law, and to
medicine and theology, are now being  developed.
Transformations in medicine
A Faculty of Medicine is concerned
with the education of new physicians
capable of meeting the needs of the
community in a rapidly-changing scientific era which has seen and will
continue to see transformations in
medical science. Qualitatively, the
change is indicated by the development of specific therapies, such as
insulin for diabetes, injections of liver
extracts for pernicious anemia, and
antibiotics for infections. Quantitatively, the change is indicated by the
fact that the average are at death
has advanced in the past thirty years
from 40 to 57 years, largely because
of a decreasing mortality rate in the
younger age group; at present only
10% of the total deaths occur between the ages of 5 and 45, compared
with a figure of 20% for this age
group  thirty  years  ago.
Today, across the continent, medical faculties are recognizing the edu
cational problems implicit in the recent penetrating advances in the
medical sciences. Medical educators
are presently concerned with discovering ways by which they can help students to develop habit of self-education. The formidable advance in
knowledge, which has been seen to
reveal areas of medical science too
vast to be fully explored by medical
students, has resulted inevitably in
specialization within medicine. The
fascination of intensive research into
the secrets of man's illness and its
relief is compelling, but the varied
problems which arise for the family
physician, in his more comprehensive approach to the health of individuals and family groups, provide
interests quite as enthralling; not the
least of the medical educators' task
is to offer a program which will
satisfy the needs of those whose
interest is in the many-facetted aspect
of personal illness.
Fascination of intensive research
A medical school, with its programs
of student education, of clinical investigation, and of graduate study,
makes a real contribution of the
quality of medicine that is practised
in the community. Private channels
of communication between the foremost research centres permit investir
gators to be aware of developments
months before they are published; researchers' special skills and techniques,
acquired over many years, enable them
to use new findings as soon as they
are made known; discoveries which
require special laboratory methods for
diagnosis or therapy, or which involve experimental drugs that are
made available only where there are
adequate facilities for clinical investigation such as can develop in connection with a medical faculty. In
addition to programs of student education and clinical research, opportunities for specialized and "continuation" study on the part of practising
physicians are included in the activities
centred around a vital medical school.
The Faculty of Medicine is the focus,
in its community, for training and
research in the art and the science
of the relief of human suffering.
In its short history of six years, the
Faculty of Medicine at the University
of British Columbia has made a
major contribution to education, research and service in the field of
medicine in this province. Graduates
of the three classes which have completed the four-year program have
performed commendably in their internships and residencies; many are
in practice, already helping to raise
the standards of health in the community and the province. The Faculty
is to be congratulated on initiating
programs of research so successfully
that Vancouver has become the third-
ranking city in Canada with respect
to medical investigation. Generous
support from the community, in the
form of student loans and bursaries,
for example, is most gratifying to
the Faculty, for it is a token of faith
in its past effort and in its vision
for the future. From its fine beginning the Faculty of Medicine continues to progress, for there is still
much to be accomplished before it
can make its optimal contribution
to the University, to the profession,
and to the community. February, 1957

Electronic computer
heralds automation
The University is taking a big step into the realm of automation
this year with the planned installation of a $68,000 electronic
computing machine.
The digital computer ALWAC III
E, which can add two 10 digit numbers in a thousandth of a second, is
scheduled to be installed in March
or April.
It is expected to greatly further
the teaching and research roles of
the university in the trend toward
Lively lambs
leap lightly
Professors in animal husbandry are
playing leapfrog with mountain sheep.
Four leaping Iambs — three rams
and a ewe — were sent to UBC
from Riske Creek in the Chilcotins.
The 75 lb. fawn colored sheep,
standing about three feet tall, will be
used in  wildlife  growth studies.
"Their jumping abilities pose a
problem," says Dr. Ian McTaggart-
Cowan, head of the zoology department.
"We have to catch them to weigh
them, and it's like picking passing
balloons out of the  air.
"But compared to deer, they are
easy to handle," he adds.
The University has already begun
experiments for improvement of deer
herds at the Oyster Bay game station.
Moose will be next to come under
improved breeding and conservation
studies at UBC.

Picketing probed
by law professor
One of the most interesting aspects
of Canadian labour law — the use
of the labour injunction to prevent
picketing — is the subject of a book
written by a UBC law professor.
"The Labour Injunction in British
Columbia" is the title of Prof. A. W.
R. Carrothers' comprehensive study
published last month in Toronto.
Selecting the years 1946 to 1955
for his study, Prof. Carrothers begins his book with considerations of
the general law of the injunction,
and the law of contempt of court,
and a definitive study of the law
of picketing. This is followed by 75
case histories of the injunction in
A total of 57 executives from British Columbia business firms have
enrolled in a 40-hour evening class
course to learn how to operate the
computer when it arrives. Another
15 people had to be turned away
from the course which had a $100
registration   fee.
After the electronic computer is
installed it will be made available
on a rental basis to firms whose
staff have  been trained to use it.
About 175 University faculty members and graduate students are also
taking a course to learn how to
operate the computer.
Dr. T. E. Hull, of the mathematics
department is in charge of the training   program.
The machine, which can solve in
one minute problems that would take
four hours by normal methods, was
selected from 25 computers as the
one most suited to the needs of the
University and the community.
British Columbia business and industrial firms have contributed
$20,000 toward the cost of purchasing the machine. Applications have
been made to the federal government for additional funds to help
pay the $68,000 purchase price.
Digital computers are already
widely used by business firms in the
United States for accounting, cost
control, inventory control, production
planning and sales analysis.
"Of course the machine is for serious study but you can have fun with
it," says Dr. Hull.
"It will translate for you. It will
play chess with you. It can even
write music.
"I listened to a 17-minute string
quartet composed by a similar computer and it sounded quite pleasant," said mathematician Hull.
Applied science
attracting more
More UBC students are entering
applied engineering courses than ever
before according to a survey of professional and occupational goals of
students compiled by the Personnel
Of the entire student body 21.6
per cent are preparing for careers in
applied science.
First choice of applied science un-
dergradutes is electrical engineering
with mechanical, civil and chemical
engineering close behind.
The survey shows that 16 per cent
of all students at UBC plan to enter
the teaching profession; 12 per cent
are enrolled at the new College of
Education and the remainder are
presently in other faculties;
In comparison with a similar survey made in 1953, interest has slipped
slightly in law by 1.6 per cent, in
home economics by 1 per cent, in
physical education by 1.6 per cent
and in social work by 1.4 per cent.
"The decreased percentages quite
probably are a result of more faculties and courses now available at
the University," said Col. J. F. McLean, Director of Pensonnel Services.
In 1953 7.9 per cent of the students
had not made up their minds what
they planned to do. In 1956 the
figure was 7.4 per cent.
. . . more Classics
Classics linked
to Athens school
Dr. Malcolm F. McGregor, head of
the department of Classics at UBC,
was elected to the managing committee of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens at a recent
meeting of the executive in Philadelphia.
Recently the University became a
co-operating institution of the School.
This means UBC students may now
compete for fellowships to study at
Athens, and that members of the
faculty are open to invitation to spend
a year teaching at the School.
"We are participating in a very
important enterprise", says Dr. McGregor.
"We now have a member of our
faculty on the committee that formulates policy for the School. And scope
for our students in Classical Studies
has widened immeasurably".
There are some 100 participating
institutions affiliated with the American School of Classical Studies.
Library needs
more support
Harlow says
The University must not be allowed
to grow large without also becoming
distinguished, UBC Librarian Neal
Harlow said in his 41st annual report.
"A first class library and faculty
and ample research facilities are the
chief requirements for academic distinction," Mr. Harlow said in his
report which covers the academic
year 1955-56.
"It seems apparent under present °
conditions that more massive support
will be needed if a truly distinguished library is to be secured," he
"For advanced study and research
the library is as essential as the
faculty itself. A lack of library re-
cources will thwart essential exploratory work and make it difficult to
attract eminent men."
"The Library operates a year-round
day-and-night university, open to all
comers throughout a 79-hour week.
Too thin a stock of essential books
and too tight a staff schedule create
repeated crises which cannot be
Mr. Harlow reported that the seven
levels of bookstacks and more than
100 new study carrels now under
construction in the library would relieve crowded conditions in the main
He pointed out the immediate need
for the promised second wing which
is not included in the present ten-
year building program.
A cumulating need for competent
professional staff in all types of library service, the special difficulty of
securing such personnel in western
Canada, and the larger potential of
graduate students because of increasing university enrolment were cited
as arguments in favour of establishing a library school on the campus.
Art exhibitions honor
architecture anniversary
The School of Architecture is celebrating its tenth anniversary
this year. Two exhibitions staged simultaneously in the Vancouver
Art Gallery and at UBC in honor of the occasion illustrate the
strong position the school has attained in the community during
its first ten years.
Despite its youth, the school has
attracted faculty and student from all
over the world. Prof. Frederick Lasserre who still heads the school es-.
tablished in 1947, comes from Switzerland. Among his nine full-time
staff members are representatives of
Germany, Austria, Poland, Czechoslovakia, the United States and Canada.
Students come from Russia, Hungary, Latvia, China, India, Costa Rica
and England as well as Canada.
Working closely with the School of
Architecture is the Architectural Institute of B.C. The Institute offers
four scholarships, provides honorary
lecturers, and summer placement for
students as well as sharing with the
young architects valuable background
The program of study is broad
offering the student a sound basis
for a specialized career in one of
the many branches of architecture
such as community and regional planning, landscape architecture, industrial
design, building research or teaching.
Students sponsor
annual conference
for high schools
More than 200 high school students from all parts of British Columbia and the Yukon will meet at
the University of British Columbia
Feb. 22 and 23 for the Tenth Annual High School Conference.
The conference, sponsored by students at the University through the
Alma Mater Society, is the only one
of its kind in Canada.
The unique conference is designed
to inform high school students of
the educational opportunities and advantages available at the University.
A travel pool arrangement is being
set up this year for the first time.
Travel expenses for delegates who
live outside the Greater Vancouver
area are shared with the delegates
by the High School Conference Ceaa-
mittee and, in gome cases, by their
local Parent-Teacher Associations. Page 4

fund raises
The UBC Development Fund,
in its final year under Alumni
Association sponsorship, raised
$144,264.96 for the University,
according to the 1956 annual
report of co-chairmen W. C. Gibson and John J.  West.
This exceeded the campaign objective by $44,000 and was $64,000
'higher than the  1955 Fund total.
A new record was also established
in the number of direct participants
in the annual fund drive. 3901 alumni
and 460 friends contributed in 1956
for a total of 4361 as compared with
4226 in 1955. Alumni donors increased by 427.
The UBC Development Fund was
established by the Alumni Association in 1948. In the past eight years
it has raised $380,000 in additional
revenue for the University.
Trustees dissolved
During this period all donations
were received and distributed to the
University by an incorporated society
known as "The Trustees of the UBC
Development Fund." Members of the
Board of Trustees were Mr. Kenneth
P. Caple, chairman; Mrs. lanet R.
Mitchell, secretary-treasurer; Dr. A. E.
Grauer, Col. W. T. Brown and Dean
Walter Gage.
This society is now in the process
of dissolution and its functions will
be transferred to the University Board
of Governors. A new Development
Fund, embracing all donations from
other than government sources, will
be established under the auspices of
the Board.
■ Alumni annual giving will continue under the sponsorship of the
Alumni Association. Gifts from
alumni, which were largely responsible for the success of the Development Fund, will play an important
part in the new program.
All future donations from alumni
should be made out to the "UBC
Development Fund" or the "Univer-
city of British Columbia" and mailed
to the Alumni Association, Brock
The $144,265 donated to- the JDe-
velopment Fund in 1956 included
$27,258 to the rowing fund, $30,945
for research, $11,316 for building
projects and $16,783 for the fund's
major objectives (President's Fund,
regional scholarships and Brock extension).
Other donations included a $25,000
anonymous alumni donation for applied science projects, $21,956 for
various scholarships and loan funds,

Students meet
B.C. cabinet
to talk money
A delegation of three University
of B.C. student officials met with
Premier W. A. C. Bennett and the
Provincial Cabinet Jan. 25 to present
a brief urging increased financial aid
to the University.
The student delegation, chaired by
law student Ben Trevino, including
Alma Mater Society president Don
labour and treasurer Al Thackray.
The visit is believed to be the first
time a Canadian student delegation
has met with a provincial cabinet to
discuss university finances.
The brief asks "that $5,000,000 be
added to the capital grant already
alolcated, making a total of $15,000,-
000 for ten years; but that $10,000,-
000 of that sum be authorized for
expenditure in the next five years.
"Authority to use the money now
would allow the University to proceed with more than one building
prpject at once. This is imperative if
the University is to keep pace with
'enrolment and the increasing demand
for university graduates."
Delegation chairman Trevino said
that the Government of British Columbia has been extremely generous
in providing financial aid to the University in the past.
"However, the enrolment of the
University is growing so rapidly that
demands for more money from the
Provincial Government have to be
made," Trevino said.
