Medical Educators Plan Unique Program
Plans to develop a unique, totally-integrated continuing medical education program in a B.C. community have  been  announced  by   UBC  officials.
Dr. Donald H. Williams, head of UBC's department of continuing medical education, said the pilot
program will probably be the first ever attempted
in North America and certainly the first in Canada.
The design of the program will be supervised by
Dr. H. Ormond Murphy, a specialist in internal
medicine currently practising in Vancouver. He will
join the staff of UBC as associate director of the
continuing medical education department on July 1.
Dr. Williams said the pilot program in the chosen
community will involve all members of the health
team, including physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, hospital administrators, social workers and the
personnel of provincial health units.
"The program," he said, "will be designed to
reflect the total health care program which is now
under development on the UBC campus in the Health
Sciences Centre, where all members of the health
team will be trained together to provide better
patient care.
"The health team concept reflects the fact that the
physician   alone   can   no   longer   be   responsible  for
all aspects of health services and must be a member of a group devoted to an integrated pattern of
He said Dr. Murphy would undertake careful
planning of the program in the coming year in conjunction with other members of the health professions at UBC.
"The kind of community we will select to initiate
the program will be relatively compact and contain

A basic biological scientist rather
than an agriculturalist has been appointed Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture at the  University of B.C.
He is Dr. Michael Shaw, 43, of Saskatoon, currently professor and head
of the department of biology at the
University  of  Saskatchewan.
His appointment indicates a shift in
direction of the development of the
50-year-old Faculty of Agriculture at
UBC, which in future is expected to
place even greater emphasis on the
use of basic science to study the problems that arise in agricultural practice.
Dr. Shaw's appointment will place
him in partnership with Dr. Joseph
A. Gardner, who was appointed Dean
of Forestry two years ago. The two
faculties, forestry and agriculture, will
share a new $4.5 million building on
the UBC campus, to be opened June
Dr. Shaw will succeed Dr. Blythe
Eagles, who retires as Dean of Agriculture June 30.
Dr. Shaw was born in Barbados and
has been a Canadian citizen since
1955. He took his B.Sc. with first-class
honors in botany and his M.Sc. and
Ph.D. in botany and plant pathology
at McGill University in Montreal. In
1949-50 he was a National Research
Council post-graduate Fellow at the
Botany School of Cambridge University, England.
He returned to Canada in 1950 to
become Associate Professor of biology (plant physiology) at the University of Saskatchewan. In 1954 he
was appointed Professor of Biology
and in 1961 was named head of the
Dr. Shaw's principal research interest for the last 14 years has been the
physiology and biochemistry of the
fungi known as rusts which infect
cereal crops. His research group in
Saskatoon is now studying cellular
changes in infected plants, using an
electron microscope.
In commenting on Dean Shaw's
appointment, UBC President John B.
Macdonald  said:
"In seeking a dean to lead the Faculty of Agriculture in the years ahead,
we have been keenly aware of the
changing role of agricultural education in universities.
"Work   in  this   area   must   become

Record Graduating Class
At Spring Congregation
A record graduating class of 3,308
students will receive degrees at the
University of B.C.'s Spring Congregation May 31 and June 1 and 2.
UBC's chancellor, Mr. John M.
Buchanan, will confer the degrees at
ceremonies beginning at 2:15 p.m.
each day in the War Memorial Gymnasium.
The 1967 graduating class includes
2,401 students who completed degree
requirements during the last winter
session plus 907 students whose degrees were approved last fall by the
UBC no longer holds a Fall Congregation for the awarding of degrees. Students who completed requirements last year are eligible to
participate in the 1967 Congregation.
Bachelor of arts students are the
largest single group in this year's
graduating class, totalling 829 students. Bachelor of education degree
students — 552 — are the second
largest group, followed by bachelor
of science students totalling 457.
A highlight of the Spring Congregation on June 2 will be the awarding
of an honorary doctor of science degree to Dr. John B. Macdonald, whose
resignation as president of UBC becomes effective June 30.
Here are the heads of UBC's 1967
graduating  classes:

The Senate of the University of B.C.
has decided to open its membership
to students.
The Senate, which is the highest
academic body in the University, voted
at its meeting Wednesday, May 24, to
allow four new Senators to be elected
from   the  student  body.
This will raise the Senate membership to 78.
The decision  was made on the advice of a 12-man committee which has
been studying the role and organization of the Senate.
Under the plan adopted May 24, one
of the new Senators will be a graduate student elected by his fellow-
students in the Faculty of Graduate
Studies. The other three will be elected from the entire student body.
First elections are expected to be
held next autumn.
Commenting on the Senate's action,
Dr. John B. Macdonald, president of
UBC, said:
"The University has been making a
number of efforts to seek the opinions
and advice of students in respect to
matters which concern them and their
education. The decision of the Senate
is yet another move in that direction.
"As a result of this decision to invite student representation on the
Senate, the students will have an opportunity to express views on educational matters and other aspects of
the Senate's work directly to the
supreme academic legislative body of
the University."
The advisibility of greater student
participation in University government
has been widely discussed in recent
years and has been studied by a number of campus committees and other
These committees have generally
agreed that student representation on
the Senate would be beneficial, although there has been divergence
among them as to the number of student Senators and their manner of
Under the ground rules now established by the Senate, any student candidate for the Senate would have to
have attained at least second-class
standing in a full program of studies
at UBC in the winter session preceding  his  election.
To retain his seat, he would have to
continue to carry a full academic load
in the winter session of the year for
which he is elected.
These conditions were requested by
the Alma Mater Society, which represents the student body.
The election of student Senators
would be conducted by the Alma

eligibility rules would rest with the

$10,000 Gift Supports Shock Study Unit
Research aimed at better management and treatment of patients suffering from shock will begin soon at the
Vancouver General Hospital by a
team of University of B.C. doctors.
The project supported by a $10,000
Centennial equipment grant from the
Trans Mountain Oil Pipe Line Co., is
one of a number of studies currently
underway in the Trauma Research
Unit which this year marks its 10th
year of operation as  part of the de
partment of surgery in UBC's Faculty
of Medicine.
Dr. Frank P. Patterson, head of
orthopaedic surgery in UBC's medical
faculty and director of Trauma Research Unit, said the shock study team
will operate in the emergency ward of
the Vancouver General Hospital.
He said the Trans Mountain Oil
Pipe Line grant would enable the
Trauma Unit to purchase electronic
equipment which  would  monitor  the
condition of patients suffering from
"Constant monitoring of injured
persons suffering from shock will enable us to do two things," he said.
"First, we will be able to provide
information on the patient's condition
so that immediate steps can be taken
to treat and manage shock.
"The second aim is to collect data
on a large number of patients for
analysis with  a   view to  making  this

Effects of Drugs on Humans
To Be Studied by UBC Team
A medical unit made up of a new
kind of scientist concerned with teaching and research on the effects of
drugs on human beings has begun
work at the  University of B.C.
The research aspects of the unit
located in UBC's pharmacology department, will be supported over the
next three years by a $57,000 grant
from the Canadian Foundation for
the Advancement of Therapeutics
made to Drs. Keith MacCannel, Morley C. Sutter and Gerald W. Karr.
An additional $30,000 research grant
has been made to Dr. MacCannell by
the John and Mary Markle Foundation of New York.
Describing the new research and
teaching unit, Dr. MacCannell said the
pharmacologist is normally thought
of as a scientist primarily interested
in the effects of drugs as measured in
the laboratory.
"Thalidomide, the drug that caused
babies to be born without limbs, emphasized the need for a new kind of
scientist — a mixture of clinician and
pharmacologist equally well trained
in   both fields,"  Dr.  MacCannell said.
He said that at present the number
of such scientists in North America is
numbered only in the dozens. The
three-man clinical pharmacology unit
at  UBC  has  been  established  under
the sponsorship of departments of
pharmacology and medicine in the
Faculty of Medicine.
The main objectives of the new unit,
Dr. MacCannell said, are to provide a
source of information to B.C.'s practising doctors on the effects of drugs
administered to patients and to obtain
new information on the action and
hazards of drugs in man.
He said: "There is a pressing need
for an educational program to provide the medical profession with reliable information on the effects of
drugs in human  beings.
"The doctor who graduated from
medical school twenty years ago has
a bewildering variety of drugs from
which to choose. Many of these had
not been discovered when he took
his training. It is very difficult for
him to maintain a busy practice and
acquire this new information. It is
our job to provide him with the information necessary for a logical
choice of drugs.
"We would also like to know more
about the toxic effects of drugs. This
is difficult  information  to  obtain  be-

cause of the fact that most patients
receive more than one drug. When
an undesirable effect to a drug occurs,
tracking down the offender is often
difficult and time-consuming."
Dr. Sutter said that many drugs
were still used on the basis of trial-
and-error experience gained over the
"Although we know these drugs to
be safe, we know very little about
how they work, whether they work
differently in man than in the animal,
or perhaps even differently in two
human beings," he said.
The group is interested in the action
of drugs in animals as well as in man
and has research programs in both
areas. Each member of the group has
independent research grants from the
Medical Research Council or the B.C.
Heart Foundation to support these
Dr. McCannell said: "The amount
of direct research which can be done
in man is limited, and frequently one
has to return to the animal for information.
"However, we can gain a good deal
of information simply by collecting
blood and urine samples after the
patient receives one of his normal
medications — like aspirin or an antibiotic."
information available through continuing education programs to practising
physicians and others involved in the
treatment of shock.
"Information on the first aid approach to the shock problem will be
distributed amongst firemen, policemen and other first aid organizations."
One of the main pieces of equipment to be used by the research
team is a multi-channel recorder to
measure, among other things, the
patient's heart output and the volume
of blood gases.
The machine will record up to six
internal conditions simultaneously on
a paper strip and thus provide immediate information of value to doctors treating emergency cases.
Dr. Patterson said the research results will be valuable in filling in gaps
in one of the most difficult branches
of surgery — the management of patients suffering from shock as a result
of accidents.
"Treatment of shock," he said, "requires a degree of knowledge and skill
not possessed by all who are called
on to treat emergency cases, and
studies of various problems have suggested that improvement in the original treatment might have lessened
subsequent disabilities."
He said the reason the Trauma Research Unit was established ten years
ago grew out of the conviction that
many people were unaware of how
injured persons should be treated
initially, and far too many injured
were dying or having subsequent
complications which could be avoided
by better treatment
"The general public," Dr. Patterson
said, "remains remarkably apathetic
to this whole problem despite the fact
that it costs society millions of dollars
every year.
"When someone is injured, either on
the jqb or, in some other kind of accident,'the cost in lost "productivity,
medical treatment costs and pensions
is  enormous.
"One very small study carried out
in 1960 by our unit on 46 workmen
who had sustained a not uncommon
nerve injury showed that the total
cost in wages, pensions and medical
care was well over three-quarters of
a million dollars."
One of the major continuing studies
in the Trauma Unit is a survey of
motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, which Dr. Patterson says have
reached "epidemic  proportions."
The study is being carried out with
the cooperation of the Vancouver
police, the provincial motor vehicle
branch and the VGH emergency department.
Researchers in the Trauma Unit are
analysing traffic accidents involving
cars and pedestrians to determine if
there is a relationship between kinds
of accidents and various types of injury and whether or not alcohol is a
factor in a large proportion of them.
"In the final analysis," he said, "our
aim is to mount an educational program to educate not just practising
doctors, but other groups such as
policemen, firemen, first aid and ambulance groups, as well as the general
The biggest problem faced by the
Trauma Unit is a shortage of funds
to initiate new research, Dr. Patterson
"The pattern which our work has
followed thus far," he said, "is that
we obtain relatively small amounts of
money from interested organizations
or private donors which are used to
begin a pilot study.
"Within a year we usually have
some initial results which are promising. We can then apply to organizations which have larger resources with
a reasonable hope that funds will be
available to continue the project"
Dr. Patterson said more studies
could be undertaken if there were an
interest by the Workmen's Compensation Board in studying the medical
aspects of injuries as to end results of
treatment and methods of treatment,
and allowing some budgetary support
for research and better methods of
treating injured workmen. rai«T'iI!IfAi:IlM3''IHis flOOCHaasEti; sfiHrBS iiHf IJI»i:Tlnunnobar-

UBC Foresters Equipped
For Space-Age Research
Opening of the new Forestry-Agriculture Building on June 14, 1967 will mark
the  passing of the  pioneering era  in  British Columbia forestry.
UBC has graduated more than 1,000 forestry engineers and foresters since
instruction in forestry began in 1922. About 800 of these men (and one woman)
have stayed in B.C. Many have been the first whites to walk in vast sections of
the wildlands of our Province. Most have contributed to its primary development
They have served with distinction and today are leaders in government, industry, education and research in British Columbia. To name just a few: J. W.
Liersch (1927) is vice president of Canadian Forest Products Ltd., H. J. Hodgins
(192B) is vice president of Crown Zellerbach Ltd., L, F. Swannell (1931) is chief
forester of the B.C. Forest Service, Dr. G. S. Allen (1933) former dean of the
USC Faculty of Forestry is head of Forest Biology Research in the Dept. of
Forestry and Rural Development at Victoria, J, O. Hemmingsen (1936) is vice
president of MacMillan Bloedel Ltd., and Dr. R. E. Foster (1943) is director of
the Vancouver Forest Products Laboratory of the Dept, of Forestry and Rural
For many years after the "Sawdust Twins", E. E. "Mike" Gregg and John
H. Jenkins graduated as the first class of forestry engineers in 1923, (Gregg has
retired as vice president of Weldwood and Jenkins as director of Forest Products
Research for Canada), the B.C. forest products industry was concerned largely
with the extracting and manufacturing of an almost unlimited supply of timber.
Then little research was required and most problems could be solved simply
by application of well known methods.
Organization of information will be improved and a new awareness of problems and approaches to their solution will be created in the new UBC building.
Foresters have been used to thinking of timberland as having just one of many uses,
and they have had few opportunities for a fully coordinated approach to land management in B.C.
Timber, water, outdoor recreation, and forage for domestic and wild animals
often can be derived from multiple use of any one area of forest and associated
wildlands. The new building can help reduce future conflicts in resource use
by bringing together specialists in all fields and by developing effective integration
at all levels of forest land management and research.
Greatly increased use of electronic computing is planned for the new building.
Methods of analysis of operational efficiency in logging, in manufacturing, and
in forest operations will also be given more attention. In their undergraduate
.studies, foresters will gain understanding of the role of data processing, operations
research, decision theory, and systems analysis as supplements to the methods
well established in forestry. Some students will specialize in these areas subsequent
to graduation.
The current great expansion of the forest industry and the greatly increasing
demands on our forests for all uses requires an increased number of forestry
graduates educated to be the future managers, planners, policy makers and research scientists of our forest industry. The new building will help meet this
need by providing facilities for increased numbers of undergraduates, graduates,
teaching staff and research workers.
The new building was planned for 320 undergraduate and 50 graduate students. It will provide space for new staff members in forest hydrology, forest
economics, forest engineering and other areas of specialization not presently
In recognition of the growing importance of scientific research, new instructional programs are being developed to encourage gifted individuals to seek
careers in forestry research. The M.Sc. degree will be open to non-foresters
wishing to qualify for some of the many opportunities in rapidly expanding Canadian research programs in forestry and wood sciences. A forest biology honours
program leading to a B.Sc. may also help to attract gifted men and women to
scientific and teaching careers in forestry.
The new Forestry-Agriculture building provides opportunities for research
by senior and graduate students not available before. Useful new information
will be created by this research, but the most important product will be the
educated research scientists and teachers needed to solve the many problems
facing the forest industry in the near future.
At present in Canada there is an extensive shortage of forest and forest
products research specialists and unless forestry education programs are expanded the shortage will become critical.
Several research projects of great importance to the forest industry being
conducted in inadequate and scattered quarters will be housed in the new building.
These include forest genetics and tree improvement research (in co-operation
with the industry and the B.C. Forest Service), research by two groups on the
balsam woolly aphid (a grave threat to 1.5 billion dollars worth of our forest
inventory), forest fertilization and its effects on wood properties, relationships
between wood characteristics and pulp properties, forest watershed management
and a variety of important forest management problems.
The research is financed mainly by grants from the National Research Council,
the Department of Forestry and Rural Development, the Pulp and Paper Research
Institute of Canada, the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, and the
forest industry totalling $195,500 in 1987.
This autumn after the settling in period and the summer's field work has
been completed, a one-day seminar will be held at the new building to describe
and illustrate the research in progress.
Wood science will be well equipped in the new building. A new curriculum
being developed will offer many career opportunities for individuals wanting
to gain and apply special knowledge about wood and its uses. Forest Genetics,
Forest Pathology, and Forest Entomology also have fine laboratories which will
facilitate the accumulation of knowledge about these important aspects of forestry.
Many new instruments are now available to help train the scientists needed to
create and protect the trees of the future. Space age methods and equipment are
available to foresters now.
The Faculty of Forestry recognizes a need for expansion of its program of
continuing education. With the new building, increased staff, and improved facilities, it is hoped that additional refresher and directed study courses soon can be
made available annually.
Future development of British Columbia's forest industry depends to a considerable extent on the ability of the UBC Faculty of Forestry to educate outstanding foresters and forestry scientists.
The new Forestry-Agriculture building which was built with funds from the
Three Universities Capital Campaign, contributed to extensively by the forest
industry, will Facilitate much more effective contributions of new scientific knowledge, development of new systems and provision of new services.
Past and Future Described by Dean
DEANS BLYTHE EAGLES, left, of agriculture, and Joseph
Gardner, of forestry, pose against the backdrop of the interior
court of UBC's new Forestry-Agriculture building which will
open officially on June 14 at 3 p.m. Old agriculture building and
14 huts now occupied by the faculty will be vacated in the
move, while forestry will move from their old building and
three huts on the central campus. About $250,000 has been
spent on   new equipment for the  building.
New Building Fosters Cooperation
(UBC's new Forestry-Agriculture Complex, costing more than $4.5 million, will
be officially opened on June 14. In the
following article, Dean of Agriculture
Blythe Eagles describes the philosophy
underlying this unique facility and its
physical plan.)
The design of the new Forestry-Agriculture Complex reflects the need for
and growing importance of inter-disciplinary training in two closely related
areas of study, arising as they do out of
two of the major renewable natural resources of the Province.
The building will provide better communication between our respective
Faculties and students with their diversified backgrounds and objectives, and
even within our separate Faculties. It
will play an increasingly important role
in determining future progress in scientific research and in our respective
graduate programs.
There is an increasing need for coordination and synthesis of fields of
study. It is essential that this need be
met in order to reduce the lag between
new findings in one field  and their ap
plication or utilization  in other fields of
Our greatest advances of the future, as
has often occurred in the past, will corr-
tinue to come from those who through
background and ability are able to mobilize and synthesize the ideas and techniques of what may appear to some as
unrelated scientific fields. These people
will play an increasingly vital: role in the
developing inter-relationships between
government,  industry  and  university'.
It is the role of the University to produce these scientists. They require
proper training and motivation. The new
building will provide the unity essential
to the development of this type of leadership role which our Faculties within
the University must provide.
Each Faculty has its own wing of the.
building housing its offices and laboratories.
The connecting wing houses accommodation for student study and common
room facilities, lecture theatres and lecture-laboratory rooms designed and
equipped primarily for specific disciplines and yet convertible to other uses
and still under joint faculty supervision
and control.
Examples of this latter type of facility
are the  pedology lecture laboratory  for
soil science with its collection of soil
profiles of the province and the photo-
grammetry and photo-interpretation laboratory in forestry, whereby students in
the two faculties interested in these areas
of study at the senior undergraduate
and graduate levels wilt be able to
carry on work using the same equipment.
The building is designed to accommodate 46 staff members and 670 students.
In agriculture, accommodation is provided for 288 staff members, 230 undergraduate and 70 graduate students, while
in forestry there is space for 18 staff
members, 320 undergraduates and 50
graduate students.
The top floor of the west wing is devoted to the accommodation of a 40,000-
volume science branch library, which
will be directly under the control of the
'central University Library.
Space is also provided in the building
for a satellite computing facility to be
linked with the main University computer.  .
A total of 30 per cent of the usable
accommodation is for the joint use of
>the faculties. Of this total, 50 per cent
is devoted to lecture-laboratory facilities,
25 per cent to the library and 25 per cent
to seminar, study, student locker and
common rooms.
What's Happened to Aggie Grads
(What follows is the partial text of an article, written by
Dean Blythe Eagles for a farm publication, which takes a retrospective look at the 46 classes of students that have graduated
from UBC's agriculture faculty.)
To date, 46 classes totalling 1,525 students, have graduated
from the faculty, with the degree of bachelor of science in
It is of interest to note that 174 (11.4 per cent) of those
graduating have been women — a much higher percentage than
in any other faculty of agriculture in Canada.
For 1,010 of these graduates (66.2 per cent) the BSA degree
marked the termination of their formal education; 262 (17.2 per
cent) have proceeded to the master's degree; 175 (11.5 per cent)
have continued beyond the master's or proceeded directly to the
doctorate of philosophy degree; 32 (2.4 per cent) have proceeded
to other doctorates, the majority to the doctorate of veterinary
medicine; 48 (3 per cent) have proceeded to other undergraduate
degrees (including education, commerce, law, arts and theology).
The master's degree of this University has been awarded to
307 students who have carried out their theses under the direction of members of the Faculty of Agriculture; seven students
have similarly obtained their doctorates.
The proportion of women receiving their Master's degree
(10.1  per cent) and the doctorate (28.5 per cent)  is noteworthy.
In addition to carrying on its work at both the undergraduate
and graduate  levels,  which   has  been  its  major  responsibility,
with a total of 1,877 students receiving their degrees from the
University, the faculty since 1926 has offered the diploma
course in agriculture and during the 40-year period, 370 students, including 35 women (9.5 per cent), have availed themselves of th? opportunities it has afforded. Many leaders in
agriculture throughout the province are counted among its
Of the 1,598 students receiving their degrees from the
Faculty of Agriculture, 131 (8.2 per cent) have been engaged
in primary agricultural production embracing a wide range of
specialized   activities' carried   on   chiefly   in   British   Columbia.
189 (11.8 per cent) of our graduates are engaged in governmental research activities, chiefly in Canada, but a number
occupy high  posts in foreign countries.
The largest group of graduates is to be found in the administrative, regulatory and extension branches of government at
the  municipal, provincial  and federal  levels.
206 (12.9 per cent) are engaged in University teaching and
research; 105 (6.6 per cent) have entered upon other teaching
duties principally in this- Province at the Secondary School level.
The most diversified group, and the second largest 295
graduates (18.4 per cent), are engaged in other activities, some
strictly personal and all difficult to classify. Many of them
occupy outstanding jrnosts in various aspects of the communications media, Tr. the diplomatic service and in industry unrelated
or only indirectly related to agriculture, but nonetheless not
without significance to the advancement of agriculture. No trace
carr be found of 71 graduates (4.4 per cent).
(Dean Blythe Eagles, head of UBC's
Faculty of Agriculture since 1955, will
retire at the end of June. In March, the
Agricultural Undergraduate Society asked
Dean Eagles to address their 1967 banquet on the accomplishments of the past
and future developments. A partial text
of his address follows. In describing his
career to the audience, Dean Eagles modestly eliminated the following facts: winner of the Governor-General's Gold
Medal on graduation from UBC in 1922;
winner of the Reeve Research Prize in
1927 at the University of Toronto for
the best published report of work done
by a research fellow or junior member
of the staff in any medical dept.; member
of the UBC Senate. 1936-42 and 1949
to date; President, Vancouver branch,
Canadian Institute of Chemistry, 1939-40;
President, B.C. Academy of Sciences,
1946-47; Fellow of the Royal Society of
Canada, 1952; Fellow of the Agricultural
Institute of Canada, and recipient of the
Great Trekker Award by UBC's Alma
Mater Society,  1966.)
I entered the University in 1918 with
the class of '22, the last class to have a
direct connection with a class that had
its origins in old McGill, the class of '19.
After some indecision as to the course
I should take I become one of the first
graduates in a double honours course
in biology and chemistry, taking some
work then  available from agriculture.
As a student I came to know intimately
the University Faculty, and when I say
"Faculty," there was only one. There
were individual colleges but one knew
professors in English or chemistry, agriculture or classics, engineering or biology. I have always striven to inculcate
between students and faculty the same
spirit as existed  in those  days.
From these contacts with our professors, we came to feel that we were a
part of a great tradition. We accepted
the doctrines of this tradition as a matter of course. We knew that we could be
as radical or as eccentric as we pleased,
provided we behaved ourselves.
We were made to feel conscious that
rebelliousness, like measles, should be
contracted early in order that an immunity to snap judgments might be induced. We came to understand and to
appreciate that one attains firm convictions only through earnest scholarly
effort in complete freedom and in a
spirit of mutual good will and integrity.
We were helping to establish traditions
that can never be precisely defined.
Above all, we learned from those returning from World War I that we had to
state matters in our own way so that
they were clear to our fellows.
This was exciting, and I think that you
can appreciate that the undergraduates
of today are aware of this when they
laid down the conditions under which 1
was to prepare this address to mark the
the occasion of the golden jubilee of the
entrance of the first students to the
Faculty of Agriculture in 1917.
Through the efforts of Dr. E. H. Archibald, I obtained a fellowship under Dr.
V. J. Harding to pursue graduate work
at the University of Toronto. As one met
with Professors such as J. J. R. MacLeod, Andrew and George Hunter, and
with Lash Miller and Hardolph Waste-
neys, one sensed the privilege it was to
be associated with them as a student.
To drop down to the laboratory of the
discoverer of insulin, Dr. Frederick Banting, and to chat with him as he worked
was an experience one could never forget
Additional stories related to
the opening of the new Forestry-
Agriculture Complex will be
found on page six of this issue
of UBC Reports.
These deal with grants made
to the faculty of agriculture for
special facilities in the building
and a look at what has happened to graduates of the Hungarian Sopron School of Forestry, which arrived at UBC a
decade ago after fleeing their
native country.
From Toronto I went to Yale University and the Connecticut Agricultural
Experiment Station to work with Treat
B. Johnson and Osborn and Mendel.
I then spent a year of post-doctoral
study at the National Institute for Medical Research in London, under Sir Henry
Dale and Harold Dudley, at that time
editor of the Biochemical Journal. I
worked at the bench adjacent to Dr.
Otto Rosenheim during his classical studies on the sterols and his illustration
of the structure of Vitamin D.
In the summer of '29, I made a fateful
decision; I returned to my Alma Mater
as an Assistant Professor to become a
University teacher under the late Professor Sadler instead of accepting more
remunerative posts in industry or research.
My formal education had Keen completed but my real education had barely
begun. You will have perceived in my
soliloquy the basis upon which I have
built year by year, and which has served
to  enrich   my   whole   life.
The Faculty of Agriculture celebrates
this fall the 50th anniversary of the admittance of its first students, eight in
number. It was established in 1914 when
Dr. Klinck was asked by Dr. F. F. Wesbrook to become its first Dean.
A Faculty makes its greatest impact
through the nature of its curriculum. The
guiding principle in the original formulation and in the changes that have since
occurred in the curriculum of our Faculty has been flexibility.
The foremost objective was the encouragement of intellectual curiosity by students and the inculcation in them of an
assumption of responsibility for their own
further intellectual development. The
great diversity of individualities, interests and motivations was recognized.
I can assure you it is not easy to formulate and direct a curriculum to meet
this apparent multiplicity of objectives.
The Faculty has always recognized three
important aspects of University work —
the advancement of knowledge, with emphasis on original investigations, the
training of men and women professionally, and the enrichment of the lives of
its students.
Now for a brief glimpse into the future.
It is something that you and your contemporaries will shape. It begins in the
Universities but does not end there.
One of the important challenges facing
those of us in agriculture is that of making our services more available to more
people. Not only must we discover new
methods and techniques but we must
parallel these endeavours by channelling
these new findings to those who can
benefit most from them.
As a faculty we should never lose our
sense of urgency. We must continue to
look far enough ahead. We must be ever
alert to the challenge of change and to
the latest advances in fields of study
affecting agriculture.
We should be thinking of the development of inter-disciplinary courses. Teaching and research need to be intensified,
digging deeper into old and new problems, and to be broadened to comprehend all the complex factors involved in
modern agriculture.
As a Faculty we need also to develop
what I like to call post-experierice education — refresher training for agricultural graduates. Especially we must continue to press for the adequate provision
for the training of all agricultural personnel at all levels and to recognize the
need for increased diversity in the type,
level and duration of courses.
This will require the formulation of a
policy for joint educational ventures between universities and industry, and between universities and government. We
should give increasing attention to higher education for management so that the
conflicts between the principles of coordination and delegation of authority
may be better understood.
Now for just a word as to what I shall
be doing myself. I have not had the
opportunity of really thinking about it.
I do know that retirement will not mean
I hope that I may be able to continue
to enjoy the stimulation of association
with an active faculty at a great University and a very close association with
old and young friends, and particularly
students, with whom I have many unfer-
mented ideas to explore.
UBC'S RETIRING dean of agriculture, Blythe Eagles, points to a cartoon of himself
which appeared in The Province newspaper 45 years ago when he won the Governor-
General's gold medal as head of the 1922 graduating class. Dean and Mrs. Eagles will
host a reunion of the class of '22 at their Burnaby home July 26 and expect 70 persons
to attend. The cartoon was done by the late Ernie LeMessurier, an Arts '16 graduate,
and shows such well-known UBC figures as President L. S. Klinck, registrar Stanley
W. Mathews and classics head L. F. Robertson. THEH3E PXW5: imanrrdosiri-jiiDA' JLIEJ^ii HBflS'on-iBabLBdi;iioc| )Jise«;Hr>eii»5

School Triples Size, Keeps High Standard
Western Canada's only school of librarianship at
UBC has almost tripled in size in its first five years
of operation, but maintains the high standards with
which it started in 1961.
Dr. Samuel Rothstein, head of the school, says,
"There is a pressure to expand to meet the demand
for librarians by public and university libraries, but
quality is essential. The strength of our school lies
in the selection of the students.
"Our purpose is to give a group of top university
graduates the understanding, motivation, skills and
knowledge to make libraries of maximum use to
Admission standards to the UBC school require
a student to have a bachelor's degree with at least
second class standing and a working knowledge of
a second language. The 81 students in the school this
past year were chosen from almost three times that
number of qualified applicants.
"We consider our program a five-year one," Dr.
Rothstein   says.   "The   first   four   years,   the   under
graduate program, develop broadly educated people.
In their year with us, students acquire the professional knowledge and motivation.
"The task of the librarian is to raise the value
of print to its highest power. The ultimate role is
to teach with books, by stimulating and guiding
"The librarian's guiding role in adult and young
people's education can often be more effective than
that of the classroom teacher, for self-instruction is
of more consequence than formal learning. The library is a fundamental part of the education process
— a basic resource for formal education, one of the
chief means of self-education and scholarship.
"The library is now involved in all aspects of
learning, offering films and records as well as books.
It often sponsors lecture programs and houses art
galleries and museums.
"As a specialist in information, the librarian
makes available a wide selection of material in collections organized to facilitate their use."
Dr. Rothstein says that automation is not only
changing   library   processes,  freeing   librarians  from

many tasks, but is increasing leisure time for people
to make more and more use of libraries.
The school hopes to offer a master's degree in
librarianship in 1967 or 1968, "but the first priority
in developing a master's program is to establish adequate scholarships since very few librarians can
afford to undertake a master's program without
financial assistance."
An early acknowledgement of the UBC school's
quality came in 1963 when it was accredited by the
Canadian and American Library Associations in the
minimum time of 18 months. The UBC school was
only the 35th in North America so accredited, though
several hundred institutions offer training in library
Accreditation makes UBC's bachelor of library
science graduates eligible for positions in leading
Canadian and American libraries. The school receives
many letters from libraries inviting applications for
positions and each year representatives of some
30 libraries visit the campus to interview potential
Since UBC enrolled its first 28 students in 1961,
it has conferred degrees on 225 graduates who have
strengthened library work across Canada.
Well over 90 percent have remained in Canada;
about half in B.C., one-quarter in prairie libraries,
another one-sixth in Ontario, 15 in the United States
and at least one on every other continent.
Students come to UBC from all over Canada
because It is one of only three English-speaking
schools of librarianship (the others are at McGill
and Toronto). New library schools will be established
at the University of Western Ontario in 1967 and
at the University of Alberta in 1968.
In this year's class of 81 students, 41 were from
B.C., 24 from the prairies, 10 from Ontario, three
from Quebec, two from the United States and one
from Hong Kong. They had majored in 40 different
undergraduate programs.
The school operates on a semi-tutorial system
under which seven full-time and five part-time faculty
members work with students individually and in
small groups.
The autumn term emphasizes basic skills: cataloguing, classification, bibliography, administration,
book evaluation. In the spring term, Dr. Rothstein
says, "the student receives an introduction to specialization; full specialization takes many years."
The student is made acquainted with such areas
as the literature of the sciences and technology or
of the humanities and social sciences, and with administration and reference work, reader's advisory
service, and the various types of library.
The lower mainland is an area rich in the variety
of its libraries and a fine laboratory for the school,
says Dr. Rothstein.
The school is housed in the upper north wing of
the UBC library. With over 800,000 volumes this is
the largest library in western Canada and destined
to triple in size in the next decade.
Board Approves New Computer for Campus
Plans to advance to a "third generation" computer at the University of
B.C. in July, 1968, have been approved
in principle by the Board of Governors, subject to financing being available at that time.
President John B. Macdonald has
written to International Business Machines setting forth UBC's intention,
under these conditions, to rent a new
IBM computer system 360, Model 67,
which would:
1. Increase by 10 times the speed
and memory capacity offered by the
present IBM 7040 computer.
2. Make the computer a working
partner in teaching and research activities by making it accessible for
instant consultation and response
within seconds through 40 terminals
at strategic campus locations.
The advance into a third generation
computing system will keep UBC
abreast with several other Canadian
universities (such as Alberta, Toronto, Waterloo, Manitoba and McGill),
which are making similar advances.
No third generation computer has yet
been installed in Canada.
The July, 1968, target date is subject to UBC having available in operating funds the $980,000 annual rental
for the new system—about five times
the rental of the present IBM 7040.
(A statement of intent is necessary
because computers are assembled to
order, and take up to 18 months to
complete). *
"The new system is designed to
meet the increasing need for a computer in research, teaching and administration," said Dr. James M. Kennedy, director of the UBC Computing
"In giving approval in principle, the
Board has recognized that the emergence of a third-generation computer
utility has opened up a new era in
the use of computers.
"In the science—or art—of computation, to be a few years behind is equivalent to being a whole generation
out of date in other fields. It is therefore urgent to install a modern system
that will keep UBC in the forefront
in research and teaching.
"While the most dramatic gain appears to be in speed, the emphasis is
on changing the mode of operation
rather than supplying more brute-
force computing power.
"By providing many terminals
around the campus, the computer will
become a partner in the problem-
solving process, rather than a distant
sort of oracle consulted by written
"Put rather loosely, it will mean
that the  appropriate  person  engaged

in teaching or research can have a
computer at his elbow, to be consulted at will and able to respond
within seconds.
"This simple access would open up
many new areas of application in
fields like psychology, education and
the social sciences where studies are
closely bound to interaction of the
man and the machine."
Dr. Kennedy said that at present
about 1,500 undergraduates and 500
graduate students and professors engaged in research use the single-
access IBM 7040 computer.
Programs prepared on Fortran
cards by undergraduates in engineering and science as credit work are
run through the computer during the
night, often  meaning delays of up to
24 hours.
The new system would provide half
a dozen terminals situated in areas of
heavy programming, each equipped to
scan programs on cards and feed
them by telephone wires to the computer, and record the computer's response on a printer. A single set-up
of this kind is the sole access to the
present computer.
Up to 32 additional terminals would
have equipment to enable users to
"converse" with the computer, putting
shorter questions and getting back instant responses, or tapping material
stored in the computer's memory
Construction  Will  Aid
UBCs Computing  Centre
An addition to the Civil Engineering Building to provide new quarters

Computing Centre will soon be under
The Board of Governors has awarded a contract in the amount of $300,-
952 to Pacific Coast Construction Co.
Ltd. to enclose an area beneath the
overhanging east wing of the building.
The area is currently being used as
a  parking  lot
The    addition    will    provide    5,000
square feet of space on two floors.
The lower floor will house offices and
a key-punch room where undergraduate students will prepare and check
course assignments using the computer. The upper floor will provide
more office space, a small library and
a seminar room.
The board has also awarded a contract for a $108,245 addition to the
campus bookstore. The addition will
provide new sales space and will extend south from the existing store. Eight  UBC  Professors
Reach  Retirement Age
Eight long-time members of the
University of B.C. faculty, including
two deans, have retired as full-time
members of the teacnmg and administrative staff.
All but two of them will continue
research and teaching at UBC next
year as the result of a University regulation which permits reappointment on
a year to year basis.
Deans who will retire as heads of
their faculties are Dr. Blytne A.
Eagles, dean of agriculture, and Dr. A.
Whitney Matthews, dean of pharmacy.
Professors who have reached retirement age are: Miss H. tvelyn Ma I lory,
director of UBC's nursing school; Dr.
Dorothy Dallas, dept. of French; Dr.
Harry L. Stein, Faculty of Education;
Dr. Roy Daniells, University Proiessor
of English Language and Literature;
Dr. Ce'cil B. Duff, dept of microbiology, and Dr. Braham D. Griffith,
Faculty of Forestry.
Only Dean Matthews and Dr. Dallas
plan to retire from University teaching and administration. The others
have been reappointed with the same
title or that of lecturer during the
coming  year.
• Dean Eagles, a member of the
UBC faculty since 1929, has been dean
of agriculture since 1955. He is mainly
responsible for the planning which
has led to construction of the new
Forestry-Agriculture building. (See
page five for further biographical details.)
Dean Eagles has been appointed a
lecturer in the animal science division
of the agriculture faculty for the
coming  year.
• Dean A. "Whit" Matthews, a native   of  Summerside,   Prince   Edward
more and more wedded to a solid
scientific background. The agricultural
graduate must have a highly sophisticated training qualifying him for leadership roles in government or the
industry, or for advanced scientific
study and research in universities.
"Meanwhile, many of the practical
service functions provided to the farming community will gradually be assumed by regional colleges and institutes of technology.
"UBC is fortunate in attracting as
our new dean Dr. Michael Shaw, an
outstanding scientist with considerable
administrative experience. His own research in wheat rust is highly important in Canada and world food
• "In addition he has become familiar
with many of the special problems
through service on a commission established by the Science Council to
study agricultural research in Canada.
"The faculty and the University can
expect able and imaginative leadership from Dr. Shaw."
Dr. Shaw is a member of the Royal
Society of Canada, the Linnean Society of London, the American and
Canadian Societies of Plant Physiologists, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the Canadian Botanical Association and other scientific

Senate. The Universities Act of 1963
gives the Senate power to provide
Senate representation for "any society
or group or organization in the Province of British Columbia which in the
opinion of the Senate contributes in
a significant way to the economic or
cultural welfare of the Province."
Under the Universities Act, the election of the four students would require
election of four more faculty members, to preserve the faculty's traditional majority of Senate membership.
Island, has been dean of p.iarmacy at
UBC since 1952. A graduate of the
Universities of Alberta and Florida, he
was director of the University of Alberta's school of pharmacy from 1942

president of the Western Canada Intercollegiate Rugby Union and was instrumental in assisting with negotiations for the B.C. Lions' membership
in the Western Interprovincial Football Union when he moved to Vancouver.
• Miss Evelyn Mallory, who joined
the UBC faculty in 1942 as a part-
time instructor, was named an associate professor in 1943 and director of
the school of nursing in 1951. She will
continue as director until August 31,
She trained at Winnipeg General
Hospital and later obtained the degrees of bachelor of science and master of arts at Columbia University,
New York. She has served as president of a number of professional
groups, including the Canadian Conference of University Schools of Nursing and the Registered Nurses' Association of B.C.

former head of the UBC English department He is noted for his own
poetry as well as numerous studies in
the field of 17th century literature.
• Dr. Dorothy Dallas has been associated with UBC since 1920 as a student and teacher of French. She obtained both her BA and MA degrees
at UBC and her doctorate at the University of Paris, where she received a
gold medal from the French Academy
in   recognition   of   her   thesis.
She taught while a graduate student at UBC and after completing her
doctorate returned to Vancouver in
1932 to join the UBC faculty full time.
• Prof. Cecil B. Duff joined the
UBC faculty in 1929 after graduation
from the University of Toronto with
the degrees of bachelor and master of
arts and doctor of philosophy.
He will continue to lecture in UBC's
microbiology dept. in the coming year.
He has published numerous scientific
papers based on research and during
the past year was president of the
Vancouver  Institute.
• Dr. Braham G. Griffith, of the
Faculty of Forestry, has taught at UBC
since 1937. He received his bachelor
and master of arts degrees at UBC,
his master of forestry degree from
Harvard and his doctorate from the
University of Washington.
In addition to teaching and administrative duties in the forestry facui'cy,
he has carried out extensive research
and is currently completing a research
study on the growth of Douglas fir that
required ten years of observation at
UBC's  Haney Research   Forest.
Dr. Griffith has been reappointed as
a lecturer in the forestry faculty for
the coming year.
Expo '67 is one of three major factors contributing to a drop in Summer Session enrolment at the University of B.C., according to Prof. Wilfred  Auld,  Summer  Session  director.
He estimates that several hundred
teachers have decided not to attend
UBC's Summer Session July 3 to August 18 in order to travel to Montreal
by car with  their families.
At recent meetings of the Canadian
Association of Directors of Extension
and Summer Session held in Montreal, officials from many other Canadian universities across Canada predicted similar enrolment drops due
to the Expo attraction, Prof. Auld
As a result of this and two other
factors, Prof. Auld said, UBC's summer enrolment is expected to drop
from last year's high of 5,943 students
to between 4,500 and 5,000 students in
The second major factor affecting
enrolment is cancellation by the provincial department of education of
the requirement that two groups of
teachers had to take six additional
units of course work after graduation.
Students affected by this ruling in
the past were those who had taken
the one-year post-graduate course in
teacher training after completing degree requirements in another UBC
faculty, and teachers who came to
B.C. from other Canadian provinces
or from abroad.
He estimated that there would probably be between 100 and 200 teachers
from outside B.C. who are no longer
required to take the additional courses
to orient themselves to B.C.'s educational system.
He said the third factor affecting
summer enrolment was the tendency
for student teachers taking elementary training to stay in the University longer and earn degrees rather
than interim certificates at the end
of two years.
Summer Session students at UBC
will enrol for 240 courses and will be
taught by 266 faculty members, made
up of 103 visitors from abroad, other
parts of Canada and the Vancouver
area, and 163 UBC professors.
the various professions which make
up the health team. A community in
the Okanagan, the Thompson river
area or northern Vancouver Island
will probably be selected for the project," he said.
Dr. Williams said design of the program would place special emphasis
on the interests of four voluntary
health agencies which had made special grants to aid the program.
A total of $15,000 in aid has been
received from the Canadian Arthritis
and Rheumatism Society, the B.C. and
Yukon division of the Canadian Cancer Society, the B.C. Heart Foundation and the B.C. TB-Christmas Seals
An annual grant of $5,000 from the
B.C. Medical Association will also be
used to support the pilot study.
Dr. Murphy, 43, who will coordinate
the program, is a native of Saskatoon who obtained his medical degree
at Queen's University and has been
in private practice in Vancouver since
