Editor - Art Welsh
Associate Editors—Hugh Cameron, Ray Frost
If others are like me, they are
very tired of running into editor's
notes, prefaces, prologues, monologues and the other unnecessarily
long things you find at the front of
most books and magazines and then
they read the masterpiece and find
it to be just so much waste of time.
Nevertheless, this space was set aside for an editorial and I find that
no one has written anything to put in its place so ... an editorial.
Most of you who read this will be venturing on to the campus for
the first time. You will feel lost in the many students and be continually wondering what will come next. You will find that you have to study
and that you will have to relax. The two cannot be too closely integrated.
As Student President Jim Sutherland has said farther along in the book
"... there must be a proper balance between the two."
You will find that your university life is not all study nor will it be
all social activity . . . but . . . there must be some of both for you to say
you have had a full university education.
You may decide to take the social side of extra-curricular activity
and join a fraternity or sorority. You may decide to join a campus club
or service organization.
Your university education is definitely not complete if you don't
take part in extra-curricular activity—it is essential.
I hope this book will give you an insight into some of the activities
of UBC and possibly cajole you into taking part.
ART WELSH, Editor,
Tillicum 1949-50.
President's Message
I appreciate the privilege extended by the
Editor of Tillicum each year of extending
through it to all those who are entering the
University for the first time an official and
personal welcome. It is not likely that I shall
have the opportunity of meeting you all personally—at least while our enrollment remains
at its present level. I would therefore like to
suggest to you that you take the time and seize
the opportunity of meeting and getting to know
as many as possible of your instructors personally.
During our years of extremely high enrollment we have been forced to rely too much
on formal instruction in the form of lectures
and too little on the meeting of minds through
discussion which is an important element in
any educational process. I should like to suggest, too, the desirability while you are at the
University of planning your recreation and
your extra-curricular activities as well as your
studies as much as possible around the University life.
Someone has said that a total "immersion" into University life is necessary if a
genuine education is to be obtained. I think this is in large measure true. Certainly
I know that a contribution by each individual to our total University life is necessary
if the process of education is to be both useful and enjoyable.
I appreciate this opportunity of extending to you every good wish for success in
the years ahead.
I'oiint il Message
I am grateful to the Editors of Tillicum for
the opportunity of bidding you welcome, on
behalf of the Alma Mater Society, to our University.
Although study will be your most necessary
and praiseworthy activity it is by no means the
only profitable activity in which you may engage during your sojourn at the University.
The extra-curricular activities of the campus
are outlined in this useful little booklet. From
the information here supplied you may learn
what you need to know about the various organizations which have their place in the undergraduate life of the University.
I would urge you to try and keep a proper
balance between expenditure of time and energy on the extra-curricular program and expenditure of time and energy on the program
of studies. Good comradeship as well as an
enlightened understanding are among the lasting values to be obtained from the activities
outlined in this booklet, indulge in them with
moderation and you will find them an excellent tonic for tired minds and confused brains.
The Students' Council sincerely wish that your stay here may be happy, neither
neither too long nor too short
AMS  President Council Members
This is tail
Councilors need not be unknown to students.
A written application to the President usually
allows anyone to attend the open Council
meetings. Members of Council are elected by
the student body on a preferential vote system.
Operating in close resemblance to a city
council, councilors meet every Monday night
with sub-committees more regularly if necessary.
Most councilors feel a kindred responsibility
to students, but when they come to allotting
money their financial difficulties force sharp
reductions. According to most of the members
the only solution to this is a raise in A.M.S.
fees, a move advocated by most campus organic izations but voted down by a reactionary group
just before exams.
Student Councilors from far and near make up our
executive student body this year.
Possibly from the farthest away point is Junior
Member Peter DeVooght, who was born in Brussels,
but came to Canada as a small child.
About the same as Pete is Margaret Low-Beer, first
woman to hold the reins of L.S.E. She was born in
Czechoslovakia but is now a Canadian citizen.
Walter Ewing, Council money worrier, was born in
Scotland but later moved to Shanghai, then back to
Edinburgh and then to Vancouver Island. During the
war he served as an R.C.A.F. pilot and Administrative
Another Scot on Council is Hilary Wotherspoon,
M.A.D. representative. He won the Kappa Sigma
scholarship last year.
Secretary Kay MacDonald originally came from a.
berta, but when she found what nice people are in B.C.
she decided to stay.
Co-ordinator of activities, George Cumming, is active
only in his feet by his own admission, but as a councilor has shown rugged speed in those feet.
Soph. Member is Elva Plant, sister of retired treas-=
urer Paul Plant. When asked the question "Is there
any more?" she readily agreed. It seems when the remaining Plants grow up mother and father may move
the dirt and come to U.B.C.
Bill Haggert, U.S C. chairman, was the reviser of
the U.S.C. constitution. Unusual ability for a science-
man, Bill brought the size of U.S.C. down to a workable group.
Ex-officio members of Council are Editor-in-Chief of.
Publications Jim Banham and Public Relations Officer
Bob Currie.
Most unknown of the councilors is W.A.D. representative Marj. MacKinnon. Elected to Council by
acclamation, she is a member of the V.O.C. and Phrateres.
We have left the most important member of Council
to the last. That is the president, Jim Sutherland. Jim
rose to the position in surprise balloting last February
when he topped five candidates. A veteran of two tours
of operation with the R.C.A.F., he is married and lives
with his wife and twelve-year-old son in Fairview. U BY

Principal publication of the Student Publication Board is the Daily
Ubyssey — campaigning student
The Publication Board is a student organization run by and for
the students of the University. In
the "Pub" offices in North Basement of Brock Hall students produce the Ubyssey, The Totem, The
Thunderbird, Student Directory
and The Tillicum. Much of the
cost of publication is met by advertising revenues. In fact this
year's Tillicum is completely self-
sustaining in its first year as an
advertising medium.
Beginning in the first week of
the session The Ubyssey brings
the students of the University all
•the news as well as being a publicity service to all organizations
on the campus.
Last year's Totem, edited by
Dick Blockberger, was a smaller
than usual chronicle of the year's
"activities but in spite of this it
was a best seller. Totem editor
for 1950 is Novia Hebert.
The Totem arrives on the campus just before exams.
The Thunderbird is the media
through which all the campus intellectuals can exhibit their talent
in more serious form. The magazine is usually published quarterly.
■Contributions are received for
reading in the Totem office, North
Brock basement.
The Student Directory will be
available in October. It contains
a complete list of all students with
their addresses and phone numbers.
This year's Tillicum is an attempt to produce a handbook
which, along with acquainting students with their campus and campus activities, will be interesting
reading. Advertising was added to
make additional funds available.
Students who are in doubt will find
the Tillicum one of the most helpful books on the campus.
The Publications Board Staffs
will welcome, train and promote
any student interested in coming
into the "thriving kindergarten."
Through special talks by professional journalists and humorists
the "Pub" will "show you how."
Whether you want to have a good
time or learn a little about journalism you will find Pubsters adequate companions at all times.

Theta Chapter of Phrateres International extends a very friendly welcome
to all the girls who wish to join in our
activities. We have a membership of 400
girls and our activities are varied to suit
every taste. We have functions for the
whole membership such as our Fall and
Spring Formals and our camp during the
first ten days in May.
We have 15 sub-chapters which meet
twice a month and plan their own activities. These activities include social
and athletic events. The sub-chapters
plan these events either on their own
or with a few other chapters. Points
are given for all activities and we award
two cups in the Spring, one for social
activities and one for athletics.
Our main purpose, however, is to help
the girls who are new on the campus.
We want them to feel at home by meeting others and joining in our activities.
They meet the women faculty members
for each sub-chapter has a sponsor. The
friendship extended by our old members,
both students and faculty, is expressed
in our motto, "Famous for Friendliness."
We would like to number you amongst
these members so watch for our meetings and join in our fun.
The Undergraduate Societies Committee latest addition to the system of student government is designed primarily
to assist and co-ordinate the activities of
the various undergraduate societies, and
to represent them on Student Council.
In addition, USC has the job of maintaining discipline on the campus, through
the judiciary and discipline committees;
USC also organizes all campus charity
Through the members elected by his
undergraduate society to USC, each student is represented, first on USC and
second on Council through the USC
chairman who holds a voting seat on the
main student governing body.
This year, USC has a very full program. The austerity plan now in effect
on the campus will cause much more
student activity to be undertaken with
the sponsorship of undergraduate societies than has been seen in the past. Most
undergraduate societies are receiving
aid from USC in the reorganization play
designed to handle the extra load. Present USC chairman, Bill Haggert, is mainly responsible for a new constitution of
USC being tried this year for the first
The purpose of the N.F.C.U.S. (National Federation of Canadian University Students) Committee is to handle
N.F.C.U.S. business on UB.C.'s campus.
N.F.C.U.S. includes the twenty-one Canadian universities with a membership of
over 60,000 students, and aims to foster
national unity through exchanges between Canada's universities, travel tours,
a university radio federation, national
debating competitions and drama festivals, etc. Because it is the only strong
body representing Canadian university
students, it can negotiate for reduced
student air and rail travel rates, and increased  summer  employment openings.
Anyone interested in furthering N.F.C.U.S. work may do so by contacting the
committee at the N.F.C.U.S. office in Hut
B2. It is a definite challenge to any student, and the benefits derived from this
work are very beneficial and educational.
The United Nations Club of the University of British Columbia is a corporate member of the United Nations
Association in Canada. Its object is to
study and support the aim of international peace and understanding through
the world organization of the United Nations. It has the distinction of being the
first and only United Nations Club on a
Canadian University Campus and has
been functioning since 1947.
The Club provides a medium through
which individual students may express
their active and positive support of the
United Nations. Activities include:
weekly meetings for speakers, panel discussions and films; staging of Model
General Assemblies of the United Nations; organized discussion groups on
United Nations topics; issue of a publication—"The U.N. Digest"—once per
month; teas and entertainment for foreign students; plus whatever other activities the membership desires.
The Executive consists of a President,
Past-President, and seven Executive
members. Committees—always open for
volunteers—include Publicity, Co-ordination (Discussion Groups, Model Assembly, etc.), Literature and Publications,
Membership, Program. Membership fee
for Club is usually 25c. Student memberships in National Association, entitling holder to U.N. News, are one
Literary and Scientific
The Literary and Scientific Executive is the governing body which co-ordinates,
directors and controls club activities and presents special events on the campus.
Student Councillor, Margaret Low-Beer, President of the L.SE., meets with Ed
Pedersen, L.S.E. secretary and the presidents of the eleven Major Clubs every two
Weeks. All club presidents meet wih Margaret at least once a term. At the end of
the year, five Minor Clubs are elected to sit on the Major Executive for the coming
year, and they receive Major Club status for that year. If the same Minor Club is
elected three years in succession it automatically receives permanent Major Club
status. At present the permanent Major Clubs are the Players' Club, the Musical
Society, Mamooks, the Parliamentary Forum, the Student Christian Movement, and
the Radio Society.
The first Thursday of the term is the
L.S.E. registration day when students,
and especially freshmen, join the clubs
they are interested in. The second week
of the term will be club week when all
club hold special open membership
meetings to acquaint prospective members of club activities.
This year again the Special Events
Committee, under the L.S.E., will present talented vocalists, instrumentalists,
speakers and concerts by the Vancouver
Symphony, all of which are financed in
part by the Pass Feature system.
The Literary and Scientific Honorary
Society includes Faculty members and
students who particularly merit the society pin. Each club submits nominations and a committee chooses those who
as a result of their activities have
brought special honors to the society.
This campus service organization has
charge of cheer-leading, poster-painting,
ticket sales, ushering, dance-decorations,
coat-checking, and a long et cetra. Active members are chosen from competent
applicants on a probationary basis BUT
the number of applicants is not limited
and anyone interested may apply.
In addition to providing campus life
with oil for its machinery and sequins
for its glamor, Mamooks guarantee a
hearty welcome and a busy year for
those enterprising Frosh.
Weekly debates are the main occupation of Forumites who belong to a club
committed to foster debating and public
speaking on the campus.
Inter-university, inter-faculty, and "intersex" debates provide opportunity for
men and women of every year and faculty to test their mental prowess and
physical stamina. Besides the McGoun
Cup and Frosh Debates, Spring and Fall
Mock Parliaments are arranged so that
even the most timid frosh may rise and
say a very few words without weeks of
rehearsal, work, and worry.
The S.C.M. is a fellowship open to all
students whose purpose is to seek truth,
to understand and live the Christian life
and discover what loyalty to God through
Jesus Christ implies for them in all
areas of living.
Weekly study groups, non-hour meetings and informal discussions are held
on the basic documents of Christian
faith, on student problems concerning
God, man, and the meaning of existence,
and on the Christian Ways of life in both
its individual and social aspects.
Regular period of group worship are
provided on the campus in addition to
service in city churches. Weekend
camps and conferences, and frequent
firesides and social events round out the
Event of the year for Radsoccers was
the construction of the slick new studio.
Facilities of the complete unit now consist of two studios, a central control room
with complete modern equipment, trans-
scription room with space for 1,000 records, and an outer administrative office
where continuity is written and files
kept. The organization of the radio society is patterned as closely as possible
on that of a commercial radio station, in
order to instruct members both male and
co-ed, under actual broadcasting conditions.
Evidence of the success of this policy
11 is the large number of club members
who have obtained positions in radio.
U.R.S. now operates on two networks,
the campus line, and a line hook-up to
all local radio stations.
The theatrical accomplishments on the
campus are handled by the Players Club.
Each year the Club presents two main
productions; their three one-act plays in
the Fall and their major single production in the Spring.
Besides these two features, the Club
every year enhances Frosh Week with
its presentation of "Her Scienceman
Throughout the year, play-reading
groups are held to give hidden talent
a chance to come out into the open.
The Club is divided into two groups:
acting and technical, the latter consisting of members interested in stage crew,
costumes,  makeup   or  committee work.
The Musical Society, now in its 33rd
year of existence, encourages an appreciation of music both by its Operetta
group and its Glee Club.
The Society produces a light opera
each spring, for which their members
sing, act, play in the orchestra or help
with costumes, make-up and other non-
singing work which goes into the production of an operetta.
A subsidiary Glee Club gives enjoyment to those wishing to sing but without operatic leanings. An opportunity
is given to soloists, either vocal or instrumental, to perform before the public
with the Glee Club.
A private try-out or interview will admit you to "Mussoc" ranks whether you
have musical talent in any line or whether you wish to do committee work connected with the production of the operetta.
The A.I.C.E. aims to promote and encourage interest in scientific topics and
their application to Chemical Engineering. Bi-monthly meetings are held at
which members present papers or listen
to guest speakers. Membership is limited to those in 3rd and 4th Chemical
The American Society of Mechanical
Engineers is the group in the University
that takes care of the affairs of the Mechanical Engineers.
Membership in the A.S.M.E. is open to
students in their third and fourth year
of the course. The three-dollar fee required for membership includes a subscription to the A.S.M.E. magazine "Mechanical Engineering'' and a membership pin.
Agricultural Engineers (student
branch) was formed in 1947 to acquaint
the members with problems and practices.
Membership is open to Agricultural
Engineering and Agricultural Mechanics
students and those in First and Second
Year Applied Science who are interested
in Agricultural Engineering. A membership fee of $2.50 is charged, of which
$2.00 is for subscription to the Agricultural Engineering magazine.
Membership in Amateur Radio Club is
open to all who have an interest in
radio. No knowledge of radio is necessary as the club gives classes in theory
and Morse code. The club operates
short wave station VE7ACS in hut HM26.
Club members have the free use of the
tools and test equipment at any time of
the day or year.
Membership is $2.00 a year.
. oOo	
The American Institute of Electrical
Engineers holds weekly meetings at
which student papers are presented,
practising engineers are invited to speak,
films are shown, and open-panel discussions are held. Membership is limited
to third and fourth year students in
Electrical Engineering, but students in
lower years are welcome to attend.
Biological Club was formed to stimulate interest in Biological subjects within
the University.
Every second week, meetings of the
organization are held wherein members
are provided with an opportunity to present and discuss papers.
To ensure keen interest in the Club on
these scientific matters, membership is
restricted to those students who have
taken a Biology course at the University.
The Camera Club was formed in 1939
to further the science and art of photography and to facilitate the exchange of
Members participate in an inter-University salon each fall and sponsor a
campus salon in the spring with University Week.
Fees for the year are two dollars,
which makes the member eligible to use

Lack of variety in the field of sports
has never been a problem in UBC. Nearly
every type of sport peculiar to this part
of the country, from American football
to fencing, is provided for the students.
Taking charge of the overall direction
of these various activities on the campus
is Ole Bakken, Graduate Manager of
Athletics for the second year. A strong
supporter of competitive games on the
campus, his enthusiasm and experience
in this line makes him an ideal man for
the job. He is still active in sport circles,
playing for the Vancouver Cloverleafs
Basketball squad again last season.
Last season, UBC formally entered the
Evergreen Conference, a stronger setup
than the Northwest Conference to which
they belong previously. And the strength
of the member schools in the new league
was shown to UBC throughout the entire
UBC Thunderbird Footballers showed
the effects of the tougher conference by
winning not a single game all season,
just managing to scare up one tie game.
This year they face as tough a field of
opponents as last year, but with one
year's experience to their credit they
are bound to fare better.
Unaffected by the changeover to the
stiffer Evergreen loop, UBC's English
Rugby squads, all five of them, represent
the school in City and Lower Mainland
leagues. Thunderbirds, the senior team
of the UBC, won the coveted McKechnie
cup, symbol of Lower Mainland rugger
supremacy, and will be in contention
again this year to keep the trophy.
Greatest  benefit  from the Evergreen
First job of the new season for Graduate Manager
of Athletics Ole Bakken
will be to see that the current American Football
series is successful financially. Starting his second
year at the task, Bakken's
experience in the handling of major sports assures the AMS of a banner year in the field of
Conference will be to the track and field
teams who, in past years have cleaned
up on their opponents in almost every
meet. Finding no real competition for
the thinclads in the Northwest Conference, since member schools wouldn't
send in teams against UBC, the decision
was made to move up to the higher
league. The points gained by the track
and field teams would balance out the
deficit left by the other intercollegiate
Varsity's senior basketball team, the
Thunderbirds of the Evergreen Conference, felt the difference in the caliber
of competition in the new loop during
the whole season. Fielding a squad of
veteran 'Bird hoopers supported by some
willing but ineyperienced youngsters,
the 'Birds managed to end up the year
in sixth place. This season a flock of
new hopefuls will be added to the old
crew to produce a possible championship team.
Soccer plays a prominent part in campus sports, with a team entered in the
Vancouver and District League and another in the Intermediate League. Intercollegiate soccer is not played, but
the Vancouver District League offers
enough competition for the eager followers of the sport.
With the opening of the new Kerris-
dale Arena in the near future, UBC's
ice hockey team will take it over for
their home ice for games in the local
Senior Amateur loop, providing a close
practice grounds as well. Exhibition
games with the touring California Golden Bears and a series with interior
teams is usually a part of the season's
For the girls, grass hockey, basketball,
and a tremendous miracle-building job
for the Senior Varsity teams are the
chief "sports," but they participate in
many other minor sports as well.
Intercollegiate swimming is offered by
the Swimming Club in UBC for both
men and women. Swim teams from
UBC have conquered conference clubs
in past seasons and every indication is
that they will continue to do so in the
future, especially when their promised
swimming pool is finally built. That
comes after the Gymnasium is completed.
Minor sports of all kinds fill the roster
for the campus, allowing Students of
every possible taste to compete in the
games of their choice, no matter what
they may be. A fully rounded athletic
program has been the aim of sports-
minded UBC boosters for many years,
and the results of their efforts are in
evidence today.

In its finale season with Northwest
Conference athletics, U.B.C. Thunderbird American Football team lost all but
one of its scheduled eight games. The
eighth, non-officially tied, was taken away
when a technicality arose over eligibility.
This year the Thunderbirds will have a
modified schedule in the higher Evergreen Conference plus a series of exhibition games. New coach of the 'Birds
is Orville Burke who replaces Don Wilson.
Men and women form Thunderbird,
Thunderette plus Senior "A" basketball
teams. By far the most popular sport on
the campus, basketball tends to prove
more popular during the coming season

Evergreen Conference in full standing,

Two University teams competed in
Vancouver and District League during

History repeated itself over the U.B.C.
Thunderbird Ski team last year when
University of Washington Huskies nosed
out the home team. The campus plank-
men will be out in full force this winter
to bring home the silver from the southern college.
Thunderbirds of 1948-1949 were the
most successful hockey team ever to
represent U.B.C. on the ice. Second place
was the best U.B.C. could manage although there was a hard fight to be made
by Nanaimo to force the puckmen out

Shuttle bird masters and non-masters
gather regularly for tournaments and fun
in the gym and the field house. The
team will soon enter collegiate competition.
Up and coming Davis Cup material began to show itself just after the formation of UB.C.'s Tennis Club. Courts on
the campus and intramural competition
make the club a threat in coming tournaments.
Another popular men's sport on the
campus is field hockey, under the leadership of Dr. H. V. Warren. Teams are entered in Vancouver and District League
each season. U.B.C.'s entry copped the
league title for the second year in a row
during the last season.
Only light support during the last two
seasons has forced the Varsity eleven to
drop its second division entry in Vancouver Mainland Cricket League. The
team hopes to gain support from any
and all who would like to learn or to
play cricket during the next season.

in at least two track and field meets in

Robert William Gaul, B.A., B.A.Sc.
(University of British Columbia) during
his undergraduate days at the University
of British Columbia, while he took up
the work required for the double course
in Arts and Science and Applied Science,
endeared himself to all with whom he
was associated, by his kindly consideration and courageous spirit. Many others
who had not the opportunity to become
acquainted with him personally, admired
and respected him for his intrinsic sportsmanship on the playing field.
Recurrent attacks of illness tested his
endurance but did not suppress his
cheerfulness. From the attack in his
final year there was no recovery. The
University conferred upon him the degrees B.A. and B.A.Sc, with aegrotat
standing on May 9th, 1935, and four
months later he passed away.
Two of Bobby's teammates, wishing to
perpetuate his name in University athletics, invited other friends to participate in providing funds for a suitable
memorial. There was instant response
and a trophy of burnished copper, to be
known as the Bobby Gaul Memorial
Trophy, was procured.

During the 1946-47 term, members of the Washington Inter-Collegiate Conference (Winco League) felt the need for reorganization of their group to embrace all
schools in the State of Washington, and in December, 1947, a new league was formed
and named the Evergreen Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The members included the six former Winco League members, namely, Western Washington College,
Central Washington College, Eastern Washington College Pacific Lutheran College,
Whitworth College, and St. Martin's College, as well as the College of Puget Sound
"which switched from the Northwest Conference.
Athletic officials at the University of British Columbia decided to join the new
conference in May, 1948. U.B.C. was accepted as a member in Tacoma on May 29th,
and began participation in the spring of 1949, in basketball.
U.B.C. is at present a full member of the CoCnference but only takes part in
four football games against Conference teams. At the end of two years, the 'Birds
will play a full Conference schedule in all sports, including football and baseball, the
latter having been started last spring for the first time in U.B.C. athletic history.

He never got through college 'cause he

Casey Jones was the engineer's pride,
In football or hockey he always saved
his side;
He was a whiz in classwork, his reports
were always clear,
But he never got his parchment 'cause
he couldn't hold his beer.
Casey's career looked fre from want or
The dean would pat him on the back and
say, "You're bright indeed."
He came to grief as all youths do, ne'er
became an engineer,
And the reason for his failure was, he
couldn't hold his beer.
The grand class held their dinner in the
Red and White haU,
They all got pickled tight that night and
Casey worst of all.
They wire to his folks next day, the message read, "Come here,
Your son cashed in his chips last night;
he couldn't hold his beer."
Casey said, just before he died,
To the engineers who mournfully were
standing by his side:

letters clear:

One of the most unusual and noteworthy facts about our campus is the
number of buildings that have been conceived, planned, and financed by students
themselves. Students acted on their own
initiative rather than wait for assistance.
In this manner the Gymnasium, the
Brock Hall and the Stadium were built
and various other projects carried out,
such as landscaping the stadium, erecting a cairn to commemorate the campaign for a new site. One of the most
striking of these student achievements
is the modern Brock Hall.
The Brock Hall stands today as a fitting
memorial to the lives and work of the
late Dean of Applied Science and his
wife, killed in a tragic airplane crash in
the summer of 1935.
This couple was held in such high
esteem by students of their day that
it was decided to erect a student Union
building to permanently commemorate
the Dean and his wife. The dream of
those students was realized on January
31, 1940, when Lieut. Governor E. W.
Hamber officially opened the Brock Hall,
third structure on the campus to be
built from student funds.
The first section of the cultural and
social centre dedicated to the memories
of Dean and Mrs. Brock, built at a cost
of $75,000, was finished. It is but a part
of the intended final. Union Building is
constructed in such a way as to allow
In the centre of the building is the
main lounge. On the east side of the
lounge is the Snack Bar.
On the main floor on the northern side
is the Faculty Room, for Faculty members only. Beside it is the Mildred Brock
Room for women students.
On the southern side of the building
are the offices of the Alma Mater Society,
and the headquarters of the Students'
Council. There is a public telephone in
the corridor, and a Men's Executive
Room in the southeast corner headquarters of the U.B.C. Alumni Association.
Upstairs on the southern side is the
Double Committee Room capable of seating 200 people. Clubs may obtain permission to use the meeting rooms by
applying at the AMS office.
In the north basement of the Brock
are the offices of the Publications Board,
the latter commonly known as the Pub.
Here is also a women's cloakroom and

As a member of the Alma Mater Society, all regular students are protected
by the Accident Insurance Plan. This
coverage insures against expenses which
are due to accidental injuries sustained
by mmebers of the AMS while engaged
in supervised activities sponsored by the
Society or the University.
Such activities include academic pur- ■
suits on the campus, organized athletics,
club  activities, and officially sponsored
social functions.
No club bills will be honoured by the
Student Council unless they are covered
by a purchase order from the club to the
Alma Mater Society. The business
houses of this city have been informed
of this ruling and it will be rigidly observed by Council.
All such things as club pins and sweaters must also be approved by the Student
Council before they are ordered.
The official Lost and Found bureau for
students is the north basement of Brock
Hall. In addition, the Ubyssey prints
short lost and found notices.
The University Health Service exists
to prevent communicable diseases, to
render first aid in cases of accidents and
sudden sickness, and to furnish advice
about health matters, to the general student body.
All students entering the University
for the first time must report immediately to the Health Service, making an appointment for examination. Students
neglecting to do so will be disciplined by
the University Health Committee.
All cases of illness, including a common cold, developed during the academic
year, must be reported to the Health
Office at once; if on the campus, personally, otherwise by phone. After an illness, students must report to the Health
Office for inspection before re-admission
to the University.
All persons reasonably suspected of
infectiveness are excluded from contact
with others until shown to be non-effective or, if shown to be ineffective, until
the actual termination of such infectiveness.
All University contacts of infectiveness
are to report to the Health Office for determination of suspectlbility, and are to
be excluded while there is a possibility
of developing the infection.
In order to minimize loss of attendance, contacts may arrange daily inspection at the Health Office during the
period of potential infectiveness.
In 1945 something new was added to
the campus-university dormitories. At
Acadia and Fort Camps, situated within
ten minutes' walk of the classrooms, accommodation is provided for men and
women, single and married students in
the form of bungalows, and trailers for
couples, or else single, double or triple
rooms for single students.
At Acadia, with the additions to the
dining room and dormitories, over three
hundred students are offered rooming,
boarding, study, and recreational facilities.
Fort Camp, with room for over fifty
men, has its own dining room and rec
hall as well.
This year additional facilities have
been added to those already mentioned.
The National Federation of Canadian
University Students has arranged a system whereby a Canadian University Student, without extra charge to himself,
may obtain a year's study at a university
in another part of Canada.
A selection committee composed of a
faculty member and two students shall
nominate, on application, any number
of students not exceeding one per cent
of the enrolment. The student must
have completed at least two years study,
with at least Second Class standing in
the second year, be an undergraduate
below the final year and be representative in a general way of the student
Through the co-operation of various
authorities it is provided that exchange
students are exempt from tuition fees
which except in extreme cases is sufficient compensation for the railway fee
involved in effecting the exchange.
Mail is received twice daily on the
campus. Student letter racks are situated in the lower hall of the Arts Building. The letter rack for clubs and societies is at the west end of the Alma
Mater Society off ice in the Brock Memorial Building. The official address is
"The University of British Columbia,
West Point Grey, B.C."
Mail for off-the-campus delivery is collected twice daily   at   an   official   red-
painted post box at the bus-stop.
Notice Boards are placed in every University Building and in the space between the Arts and Auditorium Buildings (the Quad). These Boards are under the jurisdiction of the Mamook Club
of the Alma Mater Society. Students are
at liberty to  use them.

HOME-COMING—The last full week
in October features Home-Coming weekend, with entertainment in honour of
the graduates. Organized by Council,
Homecoming brings the undergrads and
alumni in closer contact. The main
events are a football game, Cairn ceremony, a banquet, the renowned Potlatch
and the Homecoming Dancee.
CLASS PARTIES—Each class of each
faculty is entitled to a class party to
which only members of the class are
admitted. Owing to "technical difficulties'' the Aggies and Redshirts prefer to
hold banquets for the entire faculty.
the year each faculty is allowed to hold
one formal ball, usually at the Commodore. Although these balls are open to
the entire undergraduate body, the present overcrowding makes tickets difficult
to obtain. The Science Ball early in
February features tables decorated by
different departments in competition for
a so-called "mystery prize."
The Engineers Informal in the fall and
the Aggie Barn Dance in the spring are
staged for the enjoyment of the faculties
concerned. Outsiders are severely dealt
with if caught, so if you want to sneak
in you'd better brush up on Science and
Aggie yells.
—In mid-November the Player's Club
presents three one-act plays for the students and invited guests with no admission charged. Then in March, the annual Spring Play is produced, first free
to the students and then at a small
charge to the general public.
OPERETTA — The Musical Society
stages a light opera in late February
free to the students and with an admission fee to the public.
MARDI GRAS — The wartime social
event, Red Cross Ball, last year took on
the name of Mardi Gra, lasted two nights
and divided its profits between the Red
Cross and the International Student Service. The Greek Letter Societies provide
the work, the talent and the girls for this
formal Ball held in January.
: HI-JINX—A fancy name for a fancy
dress party is only just, claim the women
students with the result that men are
strictly taboo at this annual fun-fest
taking place in October.
CO-ED BALL—This dance is the climax of the Sadie Hawkins Week, the
Week in January when the girls do the
picking and choosing for a change, and
incidentally, the paying.
FRESHETTE LUNCHEON—First social events of the season are the activities staged for the benefit of the frosh.
Freshettes are entertained at the Big
and Little Sister .luncheon in the Brock
lounge. The freshettes attire themselves
in juvenile clothes. Erring freshettes
are severely chastised and duly punished.
FROSH SMOKER—An evening with
pipes, tobacco and cider is staged to welcome the freshmen. This strictly stag
session also features a tribunal which
deals with male miscreants who have
strayed from the paths of frosh righteousness.
the initiation period the frosh are formally welcomed to the undergraduate body
at the Frosh Reception. Since it is the
freshman's first dance at the University
as a member of the University it is one
to remember.
FASHION SHOW—Latest styles and
ultra fashions grace our co-eds in a fashion show no one should miss. This is
held in the lounge of the Brock and
always proves to be successful. This is a
MUST for your Calendar.
A long needed addition to the University is the Stadium, on the playing
field, built during the summer of 1937.
The main section is of reinforced concrete with a seating capacity of 1600
persons. It is completely up to date, containing showers, changing rooms, hand
ball courts and offices. The building was
constructed with the idea of being a
central unit of a modern stadium. Two
wooden bleachers each seat 500. The
total, costing $40,000 was financed by a
bond issue.

Unique among the campus Greek letter
societies are the honorary societies,
Sigma Tau Chi and Delta Sigma Pi.
Members are admitted to these groups
on a system of points, accredited for
scholarship and service to the student
body. Membership into each is limited
each year. Sigma Tau Chi is a fraternity,
and members wear a small gold Grecian
sword, while girls in Delta Sigma Pi
wear a pin bearing a miniature torch.
At UBC, fraternities are officially
recognized as active student organizations and each group has a charter from
the Senate.
It is very difficult to describe fraternities in general, as one of them may be
quite different from the next one. It may
be said, however, that they are groups
of men who are joined together in a
secret society of comradeship, both during their undergraduate days and in
later life. Fraternities are distinguished
from other secret and fraternal organizations in that they are strictly university
Representatives from all the fraternities meet together in this Council to
formulate plans and policy common to
all the groups. The I.F.C. regulates rushing and also fosters inter-fraternity contests for scholarships and athletics. In
conjunction with the Pan-Hellenic Society, it also organizes an annual charity
ball and a song-fest.
Apart from the one obvious difference,
sororities are quite similar in purpose
to fraternities and are also officially
recognized by the university. They are
groups of college women gathered together for friendship within secret societies.
The system of rushing for sororities,
however, is quite different from that
used by the men. All women who register
for rushing are contacted by the Pan-
Hellenic Association and arrangements
are made through the office of the Dean
of Women. No woman is eligible until
sophomore year.
This organization — known usually as
Pan-Hell — is composed of members
from all the sororities and regulates
certain activities common to all the
groups. It controls rushing and organizes
such inter-sorority affairs as a bowling
league. In conjunction with the I.F.C.
Pan-Hell helps in managing an all-university charity ball each spring and also
shares in arranging a song-fest for fraternity and sorority members.

37 Campus History
The creation of a university in British
Columbia was first advocated by Superintendent Jessop in 1877, but it was not
until 1890 that the Provincial Legislature
passed an act establishing a body politic
and corporate named "The University of
British Columbia." In 1891 this act was
amended to require that a meeting of
the Senate be held within one month
after the election of the Senators by Convocation. The Senators were elected,
but a quorum did not assemble on the
date fixed by the Chancellor, Dr. I. W.
Powell, of Victoria. Thus the first attempt to establish a university in British
Columbia failed.
However, some of the work normally
done in a university was begun in 1894,
when an act was passed which permitted
the affiliation of high schools in the
Province with recognized Canadian universities. In 1899 Vancouver High School
was affiliated with McGill University in
order to provide First Year work in Arts,
and took the name of Vancouver College.
First Year work in Arts was offered by
Victoria High School when it became
Victoria College by affiliation with McGill University in 1902. In the same
year Vancouver College undertook the
Second Year in Arts.
In 1906 an act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia, which, in the same year, established at Vancouver the McGill University College of British Columbia. The
scope of the work undertaken by this
college was gradually increased until at
the time it was taken over by the University of British Columbia it was giving
three years in Arts and Science and two
years in Applied Science. When the
University of British Columbia opened
in the autumn of 1915, both the McGill
University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College, which since 1907 had
been a part of it, ceased to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr. H. E. Young, Minister of Education, in 1907, when he introduced a "University Endowment Act."
This act was followed in 1908 by an act
establishing and incorporating the University of British Columbia and repealing the old act of 1890-1. This act, with
its subsequent amendments, determines
the present constitution of the University.
As authorized by an act passed by the
Provincial Legislature in 1910, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed a
Site Commission to decide upon a site
for the proposed University. The Commission held its first meeting on May
25th, 1910, in Victoria and after a thorough examination of the Province recommended the vicinity of Vancouver. In
the autumn the Executive Council decided to place the University at Point
Grey—the site which the Commission
had named as its first choice. In 1911
the Legislature passed an act authorizing
the Lieutenant-Governor in Council to
grant this site to the University. The
grant was increased in 1915, so that it
now consists of 548 acres at the extremity
of Point Grey. The waters of the Gulf
of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University campus. A
tract of some 3,000 acres of Government
land immediately adjoining the site, and
lying between it and the City of Vancouver, has been set aside by the Government in order that University revenue
may be provided by its sale or lease.
In February, 1912, the Hon. H. E.
Young, Minister of Education, called for
competitive plans which should include
plans in detail for four buildings to be
erected immediately, and a block plan
showing all the proposed buildings on
the campus. Messrs. Sharp and Thompson, of Vancouver, B.C., were the successful competitors, and were appointed
University Architects.
The first Convocation, held on August
21st, 1912, chose Mr. F. L. Carter-Cotton
as first Chancellor of the University.
When he retired at the end of two terms
in 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie was elected
Chancellor, and served continuously until his death, May 24th, 1944. On September 18th of that year, the Hon. Eric
W. Hamber was elected by acclamation
to fill out Dr. McKechnie's unexpired
term, and in 1945 and 1948, again by
acclamation, for the ensuing regular
In March, 1913, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed as first President of the University F. F. Wesbrook,
M.A., M.D., CM., LL.D. On his death,
October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klink, Dean of
the Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed by the Board of Governors as Acting
President, and on June 1st, 1919, as President. When he retired, June 30th, 1944,
he was succeeded by Dr. Norman A. M.
From its opening in 1915 till the Summer of 1925, the University carried on its
work in temporary quarters on part of
the site of the General Hospital in Fair-
Construction work was commenced on
the Science Building at the permanent
site in Point Grey in 1914, but was interrupted because of war conditions.
Work on this building was resumed in
1923, and in the autumn of the same year
the contract was let for the Library.
These two buildings, which are of stone
and are fireproof, conform closely to the
original plans as prepared by the architects in 1914. The initial units of these
structures, as well as nine other buildings which are of a less permanent character, were completed in 1925 which are
of a less peermanent character, were
completed in 1925, and at the beginning
of Session 1925-26 the University commenced work in its new quarters.
The inauguration of the new buildings
was held on October 15th and 16th, 1925,
on which occasion honorary degrees
were granted by the University for the
first time.
In the period before the Second World
War the following notable additions were
made to the University buildings; the
Gymnasium, in 1929; the Brock Memorial
Building, in 1936; and the first section
of the Grandstand for the Stadium, in
1937. During the war the University
Armoury was built, the main section in
1941 and an extension to complete the
structure in 1943.
Following the war a great many temporary buildings, chiefly converted army
huts, were provided to accommodate the
greatly increased enrolment caused by
the return of veterans to the University.
A program of construction of additional permanent buildings was authorized by the Provincial Government in
1945, and the Physics Building, the first
unit to be completed, was formally
opened by the Premier, the Honorable
John Hart, on October 29th, 1947. The
north wing of the Library was completed
and formally opened by the Honorable
E. C. Carson, Minister of Public Works,
on October 27th, 1948. In 1948 an addition to the Power House was built, and
the first section of a permanent Applied
Science Building brought to an advanced
stage of construction. Work on a general Biological Science Building with
Pharmacy wing and a Home Economics
Building has begun while residences for
women and medical, bacteriology and
preventive medicine buildings have been
In addition to these buildings work
has begun on the War Memorial Gym,
a joint student and government financed
The University Book Store
The Book Store was established for the convenience of students and has effected a considerable saving to the students in time and
money. It is prepared to supply all Textbooks
required for the various courses offered in
the University, also such articles at Note Books,
Loose - Leaf Sheets Fountain Pens, Drawing
Paper and  Instruments.
39 Canadian Legion Br. 72
The University branch of the Canadian
Legion was organized and granted a
charter in 1945. It has earned a very
high record in the past for the leading
part it has played in assisting veterans
to become established and rehabilitated.
It has made many representations to the
Dominion and Provincial governments
on behalf of student veterans. It has
rendered valuable advice to the Minister
of Veterans Affairs for the more effective carrying out of the D.V.A program.
The Legion is primarily interested in
the problems and affairs of the veteran.
Here at the University we are chiefly
concerned with the successor of your
educational program and with the assistance we can be to you during your stay
at the U.B.C. In addition to the greater
problems of housing, grants, etc., the
Legion offers you personal services and
We urge you to join the Legion and
give service to others while getting the
organizational experience and comradeship that are an important part of Legion

Keen interest and enthusiastic leadership of the present UBC Alumni Association President, Winston A. Shilvock, is
typical of UBC's thousands of loyal alumni In private life, Mr. Shilvock—who
graduated in Arts in 1931 and in Commerce the following year—is District
Manager of Investors' Syndicate of Canada, but as head of the permanent alumni organization of former students he
has devoted many hours inhelping his
fellow alumni help UBC and the students
of today.
With the exception of Secretary-Manager Frank J. E. Turner, an Arts and
Commerce graduate of 1939 and a Past-
President of the Men's Big Block Club,
all of the hundreds of alumni active in
Association work serve their Alma Mater
on a purely voluntary basis. The first
and present Secretary-Manager was appointed in January, 1946, when the Association members established a full-
time office in Brock Hall, and since that
date Alumni have played an increasingly
important role through a better understanding of University needs and problems, and a greater participation.
Mr. John M. Buchanan, President of
B.C. Packers' Limited—a member of
UBC's second graduating class in 1917—
is First Vice-President of the expanding
alumni organization, while Miss Mary E.
(Molly) Bardsley, an Arts graduate of
1933 and a teacher at King Edward High
School, is Second Vice-President. Other
Officers include Mr. Harry A. Berry, an
Arts and Commerce graduate of 1937
(Comptroller of Seaboard Lumber Company), as Treasurer, as well as Lawyer
Ormonde J. Hall, a Commerce graduate
of 1942, and a member of UBC's first
Law class, as Editor of the Association's
quartely magazine, the "UBC Alumni
During the past year, the Association
inaugurated the first Alumni Annual
Giving Program in Canada in an effort
to tangibly and regularly support NBC
students. Alumni Past-President Lieut-
Col. W. Tom Brown (Odium-Brown Investments)—a former Rhodes Scholar
and a 1932 Arts graduate—was Chairman
of the Trustees of the new Alumni-UBC
Development Fund, while Mr. Joseph F.
Brown, Jr., of Brown Bros., Florists—a
B.A. '23 who took part in the historic
Student Trek to Point Grey in 1922—has
been the hard-working Chairman of the
Fund's Board of Directors. Mr. Richard
M. Bibbs, an Engineering graduate of
1945 and a Past-President of both the
Alma Mater Society and the UBC Alumni Association, was Vice-Chairman of
the Board of Directors. In business life
he is Supervisor of Salary Standards for
the BCER Company.
Net proceeds of this year's Fund will
fce turned over to the University. Part
will procure furnishings for the new
Women's Residence, and the balance will
be in the nature of an "unrestricted gift"
to help UBC and the students directly.
