I am very glad of the opportunity afforded me each year to say a word
of welecme through t e pages of the "Tillicum" to the incoming freshman
class. During the early woeks of\our first year you are likely to receive
advice about the need to budget your
time carefully between your studies and
your extra-curricular activities and you
may find, during your first term, that
this is*a vary difficult thing to do. It
is a common experience during your
first weeks here to feel very much on
your own and somewhat at sea. In a
sense you are, but only in a limited
sense, for the teaching staff is here for
advice and consultation as well as lecturing. On behalf of all of us, I would
like to assure you of our desire to as-
s'st you in making the best possible use
of your time in the classroom and out
of it.
Do not hesitate to sample the extracurricular activities which the Student
Body offers, and do not hesitate to
commit yourself fully to a program of
recreation and work. The preparation
for life and living at this University should be enjoyable as well as being
strenuous. Because of this, and because the responsibility for the wise
use oL-yoaiK-time is largely yours, I suggest that you make a point of
getting to know your instructors at an early date as possible in order that
you may draw upon their experience and assistance when and as you want
to. The University belongs to all of us: In the words of the University's
motto, "Tuum Est:"
I hope that you make good use of both its facilities and of your time,
and that you find satisfaction in doing so. A difficult world needs well-
prepared citizens.

AMS   President's
Students' Council welcomes you to our university and to membership
in our Alma Mater Society.
We like to compare UBC to a small city, distinctive only in that its inhabitants are all engaged in the same occupation and that its population is
to a certain extent transitory. You will find that our campus city will provide you with opportunities which are unequalled anywhere except in other
cities of a similar type. Under keenest competition you will have the opportunity to develop mentally, acquiring new patterns of thinking and increasing your supply of factual knowledge; to expand your interest to new and
possibly unfamiliar fields; to assume and discharge responsibilities.
Take time now to think out what you
wish to get out of your university
career. Be sure to aim high and then
be prepared to drive yourself to me°t
your objectives. Your time spent here
should be a training period which will
enable you to achieve the objectives
which you set for yourself later on in
life. Of primary importance in your
planning is the full utilization and correct apportionment of time. You can
only consider yourself a success if you
are a good student and also participate
fully in extra-curricular activities. It
is our job to assist you to have a successful year but remember that the
help that we are able to give you depends entirely on the extent of the
support that you give us.
Recognize,   appreciate   and   utilize
your   opportunities   here,   there   are VAUGHAN LYON
many who envy your position. We feel sure that, like students before you,
you will enjoy living in our city. Once again, we welcome you to our fraternity of students.
Student Council
The Students' Council of tie Alrra
Mater Society of the University of
British Columbia, is elected to office
each spring, is charged with the responsibility of promoting, directing,
and controlling the extra-curricular
activities of one of the most autonomous student bodies in North
America. The Council meets every
Monday night in the Board Room of
Brock Hall to discuss the vital and
contentious issues that arise from
day to day from among the various
phases of campus life. These regular meetings maye be attended by
any member of the Alma Mater
Society after gaining permission
from the president of Council. A
general meeting is held at least
twice yearly when matters of importance to the Society as a whole.
are discussed. Heated controversies
are frequent attractions at such
Up until this year, the Students
Council has consisted of thireen
offices, eleven administrative, and
two ex-officio. This year, however,
will see a change in the present
organization of the Council. For the
past two years, a special committee has been busy drawing up plans
for a more repressntativc body, as
it was felt that the present thirteen-
man body did not adequately represent the diversified interests of all
students. Hence, the new position
of vice-president was created at a
i general meeting last March to be
filled by a by-election this Fall.
The creation of this new office
will relieve the   burden   of   work

of the Women's Undergraduate Society, who had formerly served as
Vice-President, to devote more time
to that particular office.

are located on the south side of the

of the costs of publication are met by advertising.
Beginning in the first week of the session, The Ubyssey keeps the
students of the University informed on all campus events, as well as
being a publicity service to all campus organizations.
This year's Totem, chronicle of the years activities, will be edited by

It will arrive on the campus just
prior to final examinations. The

The Undergraduate Societiss 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 Students' Council. In addition, USC has the job of maintaining d:scipline on the campus,
through the judiciary and discipline
committees; USC also organizes all
campus charity campaigns.
Through the members elected by
his undergraduate society to USC,
each student is represented, first on
UCS 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

us very lorg you will probably hear

its fun ions and purposes are. The
National Federation of Canadian
University Students is devoted to
serving and furthering your interests. It has done this by such things
as its successful campaigning for
reduced 3tudent rates on Canadian
railroads. Recently N.F.C.U.S. presented a one-hundred page brief to
the Massey Commission giving the
Canadian student's point of view on
federal aid to higher education. It
is continuing its campaign to have a
system of Federal scholarships for
deserving students established. N.F.C.U.S. also arranges exchanges between students of different Canadian universities and American universities. Under this arrangement
students may, after attending UBC
for two years, go to another Canadian University for their third
year and will have their fees paid
if they return to UBC for their graduating year.
National debates are sponsored
annually   as   another   service   by
N.F.C.U.S. UBC's own committee

it does both Englisu and jt'Tencli

N.F.C.U.S. at BC is controlled by
a committee of students whicn is
this year headed by Geoff Turner,
2nd year law student. The chairman
anu ti.e president of the AMS attend the annual N.F.C.U.S. convention which was held this year in
London, Ontario. The activities of
the Federation are financed by a
per capita levy of 20 cents, a large
part of which goes to maintain the
permanent office which was established last year at Carleton College, Ottawa.

The Literary and Scientific Executive is the governing body of all
campus clubs embracing those
phases of cultural, intellectual, religious, political and scientific life.
It is composed of an inner executive; consisting of the pres'dent
(who is a member of the Student's
Council), the secretary, treasurer,
executive member, publicity director, and chairman of the Special
Event's Committee; the Major LSE;
comprised of the president of the
Major Clubs, both permanent and
temporary, which acts as an advisory and legislative body; and the
Minor LSE: of which all club presidents are members, and to wCich
the executive is responsible.
The objects of the LSE are to
promote, direct and control all activities on the campus of a nature
either literary or scientific. In this
respect, the executive is working
for a more cohesive and self-sufficient LSE, in order to facilitate its
planned co-operative projects; the
establishment of a Fine Arts Faculty, the establishment of an International House at Acadia Camp, a
Religion Week and the Specia 1
Event's Committee.
It is hoped that  the Freshman
student will take an opportunity to
join an LSE club. Membership and
participation in clubs serve as an
excellent extra-curricular parallel to
studies, and also serve as a means
by which the student can broaden
his outlook and interests by acquiring a knowledge and appreciation
of the cultural forces in our world
Each year, the Literary and Sci ;n-
t'fic Honorary Soc'ety, established
to recognize outstanding members,
admits to its ranks tl ose students
and Faculty members, who, as a result of their efforts, have brought
special 1 onor to the Soc'ety. Recipients for these awards are nominated by their respective clubs and the
Awards Committee choose those,
whose activities and achievements
have been most noteworthy.
Students may join the various
clubs under the jurisdiction of the
LSE on Cub Day, Thursday, Sept.
Chairman—Allan King
The Special Events Committee of
the LSE, consisting of ten students,
is devoted to a presentation of a
program of Fine Events in Music,
Drama, and the Arts; and in the encouragement of cultural activity on
the campus.
Tr.e program planned by the
committee has been divided into
four sections: (1) An evening series
of ten concerts, for which subscriptions at $4 each will be sold, and
which will feature the Juillard
String Quartet, Rephall Kell, world
famous clarinetist, the CBC Concert Orchestra, the Helsinki University Chorus, and an opera directed by Jonn Reeves. The remainder of the program will be announced at registration. i2) The Wednesday Noon-Hour Series, which
will feature local and international
artists. (3) A Sunday Evening Series, which once a month will present an art film at the Varsity
Theatre. Subscriptions for four
films at $2 each will be sold. (4)
encouragement of campus talent.
The committee plans to present a
contemporary tragedy and a concert of madrigals, featuring student talent in both  presentations.
Auditions will be held for these as
well as for the English Departments presentation of Auden and
Isherwoods play, "The Ascent of
F6." Notice of auditions will be
given at registration.
The committee hopes that
through such a program, a more
extensive appreciation of the Arts
will be realized on the campus, and
that perhaps the foundation for a
Fine Arts Faculty will be laid.
Inhabitants of South Brock Basements Rainbow Room, Mamooks
are responsible for the multitude of
signs, numbering into thousands
per year, which advertise the many
campus functions from basketball
games to dances to political speeches. Mamooks, said to mean "beavers or workers" in the local Chinook
dialect, are not only famed for their
campus poster work but are also
called upon to help decorate the
Armouries, Brock Lounge, War
Memorial Gymnasium and other
places where social functions are
Although the club is organized
around a nucleus of old members,
frosh, particularly those with high-
school poster or decorating exper-
pnee are urged to join. Professional
instruction, is offered to anyone
with latent talent and a desire to
get in with the crew which oils
UBC's extra-curricular machinery.
Special attractions for members this
year will be an introduction to air
brush technique, experience in silk
screen printing, and the offer of
more free admissions to campus
affairs for deserving members.
President—Stanley Tench
This year the Musical Society
hopes to follow the precedent set
last year by again putting on both
a fall and a spring production. The
fall show would be something in a
light classical vein, similar to last
year's artistically successful "Dido
and Aeneas."
In the spring, a work done by a
more modern composer such as
Lehar, Herbert, Friml or Romberg,
will be produced.
Just as important a part of Mus
soc as tl'.e operetta group is the
Glee Club, primarily designed for
those who do not find the time
to participate in the operetta. The
Glee Club puts on two concerts each
year, assists other groups in their
activities and sings at football
games and pep meets.
Apart from the musical activities,
Mussoc has a very active stage
crew, giving instruction in all phases
of stagecraft. There is also excellent opportunity for those interested in costuming, makeup and
committee work.
In addition to all these activities,
Mussoc carries on a social side to
its life. Each fall, a Get-Together
banquet and Dance is held and later
on in the term is the Musical Society Formal, one of the best events
of the university year.
This year, Mussoc is privileged in
having as its musical director
Mr. Harry Pryce, well-known for
his work in TUTS and they are
confident that tf-eir presentations
will be bigger and better than ever.
President—Joe Nold

A genuine interest in the functioning of commercial radio is the
only pre-requisite for a future member of the Radio Society. Radsoc
offers its members training in all
phases of commercial radio by patterning its organization as closely
as possible to that of the commercial broadcasting stations. The more
serious minded member can obtain
more extensive training in the field
by attending one of the courses
offered by the society under the
auspices of the commercial stations
in town. Evidence of the success of
the training policy is the large number of club members who have obtained both permanent and part-
time positions in the industry.
The society's facilities include
two studios and a fully equipped
control room which is the centre of
all radio-lines on the campus. From
the control room, programs can be
"piped" downtown for broadcast. In

for over 2000 records and a newly
acquired transcription library.

such organizations in North America and Israel.

The ISC was formed two years
ago by two enthusiastic students,
one an East Indian girl from South
Africa, and the other an English
girl. The idea of the club is to enable students, specially those from
outside Canada, to get to know
one another. This year, the club
offers a programme of friendly
social events in city homes, using
various national themes for
refreshments and entertainment
Sunday get-to-gethers over tea,
tours of local industrial sites, businesses, etc. and a grand masquerade ball.
The practical object of the ISO
concerns   International   House,   a
campus residence for Canadian
and foreign students. A committee, which is working for the early
establishment of such a House,
has been set up under the club
president. A friendly welcome is
extended to all. Why don't you
join us?

The chief aim of the Social Problems Club is to make students
aware of the basic problems existing in our present day society, and,
at the same time, to bring to their
attention the local manifestations
of these fundamental disorders.
The club attempts to carry out
these aims, of seeking a realistic
approach to idealistic theories, by
presenting well-known speakers,
and by sponsoring debates and informal discussion groups. For example, last year the club presented
discussions on religion and marriage, brought "Town meeting of
the Air" to the campus, gave an introductory report on The British
Columbia Doukhobor problem and
made preliminary arrangements for
various radio talks.
UBC Co-operative Club is affiliated with the B.C. Aero Club, and

Hi Freshettes! The executive of
the Women's Undergraduate Society
(WUS to you) thought that an article in the Tillicum might answer
some of the questions that have
been bothering you. If you feel lost
out here—read on.
You are now a member of WUS—
in fact you bacame one when you
ned, look over the activities calendar further along in the book.
Most of the campus traditions you
will have absorbed by the end of a
few weeks at Varsity. Remember
one prime thing about university
life—you must be willing to put
something into it if you want to
get something out of it. Attend
campus activities; join one or two
Frosh week may sound silly to
you, but this is the only time you'll
have a chance to go through all
this fun and nonsense. Attend, if
you possibly can, all the functions
held during Frosh Week, because
they are designed to inform you
about university life.
When you go through registration
you'll be given the name of a girl
who is to be your "big sister"—she
will show you around the campus
and answer any questions you have
about UBC life. If you don't happen
to get a big sister during registration get in touch with the WUS
executiva. The girls there will get
one for you as quickly as they can.
Among the things the two of you
will do together is attend the Big-
L'.ttle Sister Banquet, held by big
sisters for their little sisters. Erring freshettes are "penalized" at
this function for not having conformed to Frosh week rules, so be
safe, wear your "dink hat" and
green nail polish. Your "sister" will
get you a date for the Frosh Reception too, maybe with that handsome football player you saw during
registration. For other WUS Events
see the calendar in this book.
If you need anything from courses
to boarding houses, Dean Mawdsleyj
is here to help you. Her office is
located on the main floor of the!
Arts Building.
Looking for a place to meet your
gal friend? Why not suggest the
Common Room on the second floor
of the Arts Building, or the Mildred
Brock Room in the north end
of Brock Hall. Both these rooms
Too see just what they've plan-    are for women only. If you want to
signed your registration slip. Take
part in some of the events planned
for you by your group.
What exactly is WUS you ask?
Politically, WUS is a simple structure. The president of WUS, this
year Mary Lett, represents all campus women when she votes on the
Students' Council. Her executive
represent all women at UBC -there
are faculty reps (arts, commerce,
phys. ed, home ec, nursing, aggie,
etc.) groups reps, Women's Athletic Association, Phrateres, Honorary sorority, (dorm gals) and publicity reps (Women's editor of The
Ubyssey). The group meets about
once a week to discuss WUS events.
eat you can go to the Caf, located
in the Auditorium Building, the
snack bar in the south end of Brock
Hall, or one of the many little coffee shops on the campus—the Legion Snack Bar, the Totem Snack
Bar, the Campus Cupboard next to
the Library, or the coffee shop right
behind the bus stop. If you want a
lunch that's a bit more expensive—
a place you might take your visiting friends — try the Brock Hall
Dining Room—it's right opposite
the Mildred Brock Room.
And in passing, go into the art
Callery located in the basement of
the new wing of the library. The
gallery has a continuous display
of loan exhibitions from well-known
artists. There is also a Fine Arts
Room on the main floor of the old
wing, where books on dancing,
music, opera, art etc. are shelved.
Inquire about the Record Loan Service, and watch ior noon hour lectures and functions of interest to
We suggest that you get a copy
of the Student Directory. It lists the
addresses and phone numbers of all
the students of the University, and
is an invaluable aid. Speaking of
addres^s, we think of letters — the
post office is right behind the Caf—
opoosi'° the bookstore. Still wondering rbout campus life? Then
watch the issues of The Ubyssey for
campus life. For a permanent record of your vear, get a copy of the
Totem ycarboook.
One of the first questions a freshette asks herself is "What should I
wear to University?" At UBC this
isn't too big a problem because campus fashion is casual to the "n'th"
degree. The first rule to remember
is: "Don't try to look like an American fashion plate."
For on-campus you'll find that a
good raincoat and its accessories
are almost a uniform. Most UBC
girls wear a standard navy raincoat
because it is practical and is so
classic that you don't tire of it. If
you feel you'll be happy in a gayer
outfit by all means wear it. But like
what you are wearing, because it
does help your self-confidence if
you feel well-dressed.
Most girls wear sweaters to lectures—in fact they are the backbone of every girl's wardrobe. It
goes without saying that they must
be fresh and simply styled. Accessories? Yes, to perky collars, soft
scarves, a single or double strand
of pearls. No, too extremes in costume jewellery. Bobby socks or nylons and flatties are worn on campus.
What do you wear to games? For-
outdoor sports wear something
warm. Nothing is more boring than
spending two hours in the stands
listening to someone complain of the
cold. Basketball games are usually
followed by an informal dance, so
wear, a wool dress or a suit to such
a function.
It is nice to have a suit to wear on
ordinary dates. Have a hat and at
least one pair of white gloves to
wear with >our suit and coat.
So you lika to sew? That's fine,
but don't try to do jobs that are
too bi°; for you. Unless you are an
excellent tailor, don't Attempt to
make your own suits. A cheap ready
made sun looks better than a poorly
made suit of the best material. Lots
of the smartest girls make their
own dressy clothes Cand that's
where you really save money.)
A short dressy dress of taffeta,
moire, or any similar fabric is right
to wear to the Frosh Reception. This
dress can be worn for all sami-for-
mal evenings. You should have at
least one formal (could be a dressy
blouse and a long skirt to wear to
the Big Dances. It's nice, too, to
have an evening cape to wear over
a formal—perhaps an inexpensive
velvet affair.
And, in passing, a word to the
wise. One pair of high heeled black
suede shoes, if they are plain opera
pumps, wiU be enough for dressy
shoes. But don't wear them to a
dance in the Armouries—one evening will ruin them.
Once you put on an outfit, forget
about it—it's too late to change anyway. If you look happy you'll look
wonderful and you're bound to have
Freshettes are usually overawed
at the thought of sororities, the
main social groups on the campus.
If you join a sorority, you'll have
loads of fun, and make some lifelong friends at the same time.
23 You have a whole year to find
out about sororities, what they do,
what their requirements are, and
how much they cost. First, you must
have completed 15 units toward
your first year before you are eligible to rush. Membership for three
years costs between one hundred
and fifty dollars; this includes the
cost of lees and the pin.
All groups have weekly meetings
and some have specific pnilanthrop-
ic projects such as aiding the Crippled Children. Most of the groups
also sponsor one big function Such
as a dance or a cabaret during the
academic year.
Sororities at UBC are: Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha
Omicron Pi, Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, Delta Phi Epsilon, Gamma Phi
Beta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Kappa
Alpha Theta, and Delta Sigma Pi,
the Honorary Sorority.
Delta Sigma Pi is the Women's
Honorary sorority at UBC, having
as members those girls who have
done outstanding work on the campus, and who have a high scholastic
Qualifications for membership are
high, admission being based on
points earned for scholarship, service and leadership. Club membership and interest count for the second requirement, while executive
positions in these clubs add points
to your leadership score. Scholarship average must be second class,
with no supplemental the last year
previous to entering Delta Sigma Pi.
Any girl entering the university is
eligible for membership, provided
she is willing to devote a fair
amount of time to campus activities
and maintains a high scholastic
average at the same time.
Nominations for Delta Sigma Pi
are taken each spring and fall, and
initiation takes place in the fall.

Phrateres is an international
democratic organization which is
open to all women on the campus.
Phrateres is a Greek word meaning
"Sisterhood", and the purpose of
Phrateres is to uphold standards and
ideals of the university and above
all to foster a spirit of friendliness
among the women on the campus.
This ideal can plainly be seen in
the motto of Phrateres "Famous for
Phrateres at the University of
British Columbia was started in
1935 and since then has grown into
one of the largest clubs on the campus with a membership each year
oi about three hundred.
The International organization is
divided into chapters. Theta Chapter at UBC is divided into twelve
sub-chapters of about 2 each, and it
is in these sub-chapters that most
of the fun and fellowship of Pi ra-
teres is found. The sub-chapters
meet bi-monthly for business and social activities and they also have
other varied activities during the
Each chapter plans its own parlies and philanthropic work. These,
needless to say are varied, they
range from hemming diapers and
knitting for the Red Cross, to having Chinese dinners and mixed
Square Dance Parties. The activities carried out by all Phratareans
begin early in the fall term with
Fireside teas for new members, the
Old Members Banquet and Pledging Ceremony, where the new members receive their pledge pins which
xhsy wear during the pledge period
of approximately three months.
Pledges are required to show their
interest by active participation in
the majority of activities. In January the Pledges are initiated at a
formal candle-lit Initiation Ceremony, and here they receive their
active pins, a gold Greek letter
Phi on black enamel and membership scrolls.
On the social side Phrateres enjoys two formals which have long
been claimed as among the most
successful formals on the Campus.
There is usually an additional "barn
dance" given for the men's residences on the campus.
The last all-Phrateres function of
the year is perhaps the most enjoyable one. It is the Camp that is
held at the end of exams each year.
For ten days Phratareans "do nothing" and the fun had and fellowship
created give Phratereans added zeal
for the next year.
The Philanthropic work of Phrateres is carried on mainly in the subchapters although there is usually
one project the entire Theta chap-
ter sponsors, such as a "Diaper
Derby" each year. Last year Phrateres started a "Phrateres Scholarship" fund to provide financial aid
for a first year student from out
of town.
Besides its own activities Theta
Is active in campus activities. There
is a cup given each year for the
chapter with the most athletic points
—the majority of which are obtained from intramural participation. A cup is also given for the
most active chapter in all other
campus and inside activities.
To enumerate all of the activi
ties of Phrateres would be impossible. The activities are never dull
or commonplace, for when there
are 300 members in one organization many different ideas are sure
to be forthcoming.
There is a place in Phrateres for
every girl on the campus \Vho wishes to put a little of her time and
energy into it. For like any organization on the campus or anywhere
you only get out of it what you
put into it. However, it is the spirit
of friendship among Phratereans
that keeps the organization truly
"Famous for Friendliness."

Woineii's Sports
The outstanding feature of women's sports at UBC is that there are
exciting and diverse activities for
not only the experienced athletes
but also the interested novices. It
is the objective of the Women's
Athletic Directorate, which governs
the intramural and exfianiural programs, to encourage every girl to
discover the satisfactory enjoyment
afforded by participation in athletics.
The  directors  make  a  conscientious effort to sponsor all sports
for which there is student demand.
The schedule includes:
— badminton        — grass hockey
— basketball        — table tennis
— archery — tennis
— skiing — volleyball
In addition, Special Events are
held such as the entertaining Indoor Track Meet.
The percentage of co-eds entering
Intramurals is extremely high because the girls delight in the happy
hours of healthful recreation and
friendly associations with their fellow-students.
Athletic experience is not a pre-
quisite for Intramurals. As a matter of fa?t, the experienced players
act as coaches so that every girl
will have an opportunity to learn
the game.

Cainpus History
The creation of a University in
British Columbia was first advocated by Superintendant 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 affiliaton of
high schools in the province with
recognized Canadian universities. In
1889, Vancouver High School was
affiliated with McGill University in
order to provide work in First Year
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 in British Columbia, which in the same
year, established at Vancouver, tre
McGill University College of British Columbia. The scope of the work
undertaken by this college gradually increased. 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
ceased to exist.
Definite steps to establish a university had been taken by Dr. H. E.
Young, Minister of Education in
1907 when he introduced a University Endowment Act. This was followed in 1908 by an act establishing and incorporating the Univer
sity of British Columbia, 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 Lieut.-Gov. in council appointed
a Site Commission to decide upon
a site for the proposed university.
The commission held its first meeting on May 25, 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 the commission had named
as its first choice. In 1911, the Legislature passed an act authorizing
the Governor 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 land immediately
-adjoining the site and lying between
it and the city of Vancouver, has
been set aside by the Government in
order that the university revenue
fnay 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 proposed buildings of the campus. Messrs. Sharp and Thomson
of Vancouver were the successful
competitors and were appointed
University Architects.
The first Convocation held in August, 1912, chose as the first Chancellor of the university Mr. F. L.
Carter Cotton. When he retired in
1918 at the end of two terms, Dr.
R. E. McKechnie was elected Chancellor, and served continuously until
his death in May, 1924. On September 18 of that year, the Hon. Eric
W. Hamber was appointed by acclamation to fill out Dr. McKechnie's
unexpired term, and in 1945 and
1948, for the ensuing regular terms.
He was succeeded by Brig. Sherwood E. Lett, who took office in
May 28th, 1951.
In  March, 1913,  the Lieutenant-
29 Governor in Council appointed as
first President of the university Dr.
F. F. Westbrook, M.A., M.D., CM.,
LI.D. On his death, 1918, L. S. Klin-
ick was appointed by the Board of
Governors as Acting President and
on June 1st, 1919, as president.
When he retired in 1944, he was
succeeded by Dr. Norman A. M.
From its opening in 1915 till the
summer ot 1925, the university carried on its work in temporary quarters on part of the site of the General Hospital in Fairview. Construction work was begun on the Science
Building at the permanent site in
Point Grey in 1914, but was interrupted because of war conditions.
Work on the building was resumed
in 1923, and in 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, and at the
beginning of the Session in 1925-26
the university commenced work in
its new quarters.
The inauguration of the new buildings was held 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, notable additions were
made to the university buildings:
the gymnasium in 1921, the Brock
Memorial building in 1936, and the
first section of the grandstand for
the Stadium in 1937. During the
war the Armoury was built.
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.
In 1945 the Provincial Government authorized the construction of
further permanent buildings. Under
this program, the Physics Building
was completed in 1947, a wing was
built on the Library in 1948, and
in the same year, the Power House
was enlarged. The Home Economics
Building was completed in 1949,
and in 1950 the Engineering Building and the Biological Sciences building were opened. At present, three

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 DVA program.
The Legion is primarily interested
in the problems and affairs of the
veteran. Here at the University we
are chiefly concerned with the success of your educational program
and with the assistance we can be
to you during your stay at the UBC.
In addition to the greater problems
of housing, grants, etc., the Legion
offers you personal services and
University Service Corps
University Service Training Corps
is open to all male students who can
meet the necessary physical requirements.
All branches of the service are
represented on the campus, coming
under the jurisdiction of a Joint
Service Training Committee, consisting of the President of the University and the Commanders of the
COTC, UNTD, and RCAF (Aux.),
Deans of the Faculties, and representatives from the Army, Navy and
Air Force.
Canadian Officers Training Corps
has been operating on the campus
since 1928. Prospective officer cadets are required to write the officer commanding. Successful candidates are then appointed as officer
cadets. They are required to donate
a minimum of three hours per week
also a minimum of three to four
months during the summer. This
time is spent at various Active Force
Schools across Canada, under Active Force officers and instructors.
Upon completion of the course,
they may emerge with the rank of
Captain in the Reserve   or   First
Lieutenant in the Active Force.
University Naval Training Division is commanded by A/Lieut.-Com.
F. J. T. Turner, RCN (R).
Students wishing admission are
attested in the Fall as ratings and
prior to February 1st, appear before an Officer's Selecting Board.
If they pass they are admitted as
Officer Cadets. Upon completion of
a four year syllabus, cadets may
apply for a permanent force commission.
Training involves 23 hours of parades during the calendar year, and
active duty during the summer.
RCAF (Auxiliary) University
Flight is commanded by Dr. J. Allan
Harris. It offers students an opportunity to qualify for positions in
the RCAF Regular, Reserve or Auxiliary. Applicants are carefully selected and given a complete medical
examination. Training involves attending weekly parade and five
months attachment to the Regular
Air Force.
Further information can be obtained from the Orderly Rooms in
the Armouries.
31 Brock Memorial Hall
Brock Hall stands today as a fitting memorial to the life 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 the 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 in January, 1931 when
Lieut-Gov. W. E. Hamber officially
opened the Brock Hall, third structure on the campus to be built from
student funds.
Brock Hall was so planned as to
provide both recreational and working facilities for students. In the
centre of the building is the main
lounge, on the east side of which is
the Snack Bar. Across from the
main lounge on the south side of
t..e 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 in the South basement
are housed the club rooms of the
Mamooks and the Radio Society. Upstairs on the south side is the
Double Committee Room, capable of
seating 200 people. Clubs may obtain permission to use it for meetings by applying to the AMS office.
On the main floor on the northern side is the Faculty Room for
Faculty members only, and the Mildred Brock Room for women students. In the north basement are
the offices of the Publications board
and a women's cloakroom and washroom.
The War Memorial Gymnasium
stands as a fitting tribute to the
men and women of Canada's Armed
Forces who gave their lives for their
country in the Second World War.
Financed in the main by public subscriptions, Provincial Government
grants and a special student levy, a
large portion of the necessary funds
were raised by pledges from students, who agreed to pay a fixed
amount, when they could afford it,
to the War Memorial Gymnasium
Committee, headed by Engineering
student, Bill Haggert.
Although the Gym has been in
use since early last Spring the offi
cial opening will not be held until
next fall. Additional construction,
when funds are available, will provide a swimming pool, in addition
to the present structure, which contains three basketball courts with
backstops, 600 seats and bleachers,
150 men's lockers in the main foyer,
six bowling alleys, showers and an
auxiliary gym for boxing, wrestling
and tumbling.
Unique architectural features
about the gymnasium are the projecting exterior stairs at the main
entrance, and the notable emphasis
in glass throughout the entire structure.

As a member of the Alma Mater
Society, all regular students are
protected by the Student Accident
Insurance Plan. This coverage insures against expenses which are
due to accidental injuries sustained
by members of the AMS while engaged in supervised activities sponsored by the society of the university. Such activities include academic pursuits on the campus, organized athletics, club activities, and officially  sponsored  social functions.
The official address for the university is "The University of British Columbia, West Point Grey,
Vancouver, B.C."
The Post Office is situated for
off-campus delivery at the official
post boxes outside the Post Office
and outside the Bus Stop. The letter racks for club and societies is
at the west end of the Alma Mater
office in the Brock Memorial Build-
The University Book Store, which
occupies Hut A-3, was established
for the convenience of students, and
has effected a considerable saving
to them in time and money. It is
prepared to supply all the textbooks
needed for various courses offered
in the university, also such articles
as note books, loose-leaf books,
fountain pens, drawing paper and
instruments, i
During   the   winter   session, the
book store is open from 9 to 5.
Generally, first and second year
out of town women students can
find accommodation in the modern
new residence halls adjacent to the
campus by applying to the Dean of
Women's office. In special cases,
senior students may also be accommodated, but in this event, special
application must be made. The
charge for residence hall accommodation will be between $45 and
$50 per month.
Senior women students may also
find accommodation at Acadia camp
within 10 minutes walk from the
campus, which provides boarding,
rooming, study and recreational facilities. Charge for accomodation is
between $40 and $45.
Accommodation for men can be
had in either of the two camp dormitories, Fort or Acadia. Students
wishing accommodation should apply to the Housing Administrator at
the university.
Accommodation for both men
and women can be had in private
homes throughout the city. Two or
three meals a day are usually provided, but in many cases, room and
breakfast can be had. Should this
be the case, additional meals can
be obtained at any of the eating
places on the campus. Cost of accommodation in private homes ranging from $50 per month for room
and breakfast to $65 per month for
complete room and board.
Employment opportunities for a
limited number of students are av
ailable for work on the campus in
the libra, y, book store, janitor and
ufaihta-irisnae departments, anc"; the
food services. In order taat chere
may be as little interference with
studies as possible, and in order
to take care of the maximum number of applicants, jobs are limited
to 10 hours per week. Applicants
for bursaries may be offered employment of this kind as a supplement to a bursary or in place of a
bursary. Enquiries should be sent to
the Director of Student Service at
the university.
"Open House" is the big student
project of '51'52, and involves everybody and everything on the campus.
One Saturday in the middle of
March, approximately 50,000 Vancouver citizens are expected to visit
the campus. With $3,500 provided
by the administration, the Open
House Committee plans on providing displays and tours so that in a
few hours the average British Columbia citizen can get an accurate
and comprehensive glimpse of university life. Open House is by far
the biggest public relations job attempted by students.
Chairman of the Open House
Committee is Ivan Feltham, Council member and presidential candidate last year. His chief assistant
will be Bruce Lee, Open House Coordinator.
To be a success, Open House requires the co-operative efforts of
faculty, administration and students. It is on the students that the
bulk of the work falls. 5,000 hard
working and enthusiastic students
are going to be needed to show
50,000 B.C. citizens around our campus. Give this tremendous project
your fullest support.

(Engineer's Song)
Come all you freshmen if you want
to hear
The story of a brave engineer;
He started to college in the fall of
Why he took up engineering is  a
mystery to me.
Casey Jones couldn't hold his liquor
Casey Jones couldn't hold his beer,
Casey Jones never got through college.
He never got through college 'cause
he couldn't hold his beer.
Casey Jones was the engineer's
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.
35 Casey's career looked free from
want or need,
The dean would pat him on the back
and say, "You're bright indeed."
He came to grief as all youth do,
ne'er became an engineer,''
And the reason for his failure was,
He couldn't hold his beer.
The grad class held their dinner in
the Red and White hall,
They all got pickled tight that night
and Casey worst of all.
They wired 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;
"Erect a tablet in the halls, engrave
these letters c'^ar;
"Never come to college if you cannot hold your beer."
There's a braw fine regiment as lika
man should ken.
They are deevils at the fetchen, they

When   the   watters   o'   the  deluge

The  Colonel  o'  the  regiment,  his

Sae a muckle boat he biggit and he

And they sailed awa' frae drooned

And synne he sent a Corporal and

The Library
With the opening of its new North Wing in October, 1948 the Library
Building became twice its former size. There is a large map of the Library
in the lobby just inside the main entrance on the first floor.
FIVE DESKS (2nd floor, up stairway from main entrance). When you
know the author, title and call number of the book you need, write this
information on a Call Slip and hand it into the Loan Desk. If the book is
in the stacks, it will be brought to you, otherwise you will be told where it
is or when it is due. The stacks are closed to the general student body but
access can be had by graduates, honor students and senior pass students.
Most of the books in the stacks may be had for a week.
2. REFERENCE DESK (Ridington Room, 2nd floor, North Wing).
When you need help in using the card catalogue or periodical indexes, or in
gathering materials, ask at the Reference Desk. The Ridington Room contains such reference tools as encyclopedias, dictionaries and periodical indexes and also useful materials such as pamphlets and government documents which are often not found in the card catalogue.
3. The RESERVE DESK (Reserve Book Room, 1st floor, North Wing).
Behind this desk are the books recommended for a particular course. Students go in through the turnstile to choose their books from the shelves.
Reserve books are usually lent for two hours or overnight.
4. The PERIODICAL DESK (Periodical Room, up stairway to right of
main desk.) The unbound issues of hundreds of various types of magazines can be obtained from this desk. Bound periodicals are kept in the
stacks and may be obtained from the main desk.
5. The FINE ARTS Desk (Fine Arts Room, 1st floor). Books and magazines on such subjects as Music, Painting, Art and other Arts are kept
in the Fine Arts Room. Some books are for use in the room, others may
be borrowed for a week.
CARD CATALOGUE is the passage between the main Desk and the
Ridington Room. The cards make up an alphabetical list of the books in the
Library, and show the call numbers. Books are listed by author, title and
subject. For example, "Focus on Africa," by Richard Light, would be
found under F for Focus, A for Africa and L for Light.
RENTAL COLLECTION is made up of recent popular books for recreational reading. The charge is three cents a day. This collection may be
seen at the Loan Desk.
GRAMAPHONE RECORDS may be borrowed from the Extension Library. A small rental fee is charged.

Alumni Association
Keeping contact with you and
keeping you in touch with UBC—
that's the job of the UBC Alumni Association, the permanent organization of graduates and former students.
In the permanent Association office in Brock Hall, there are now
some 16,000 addresses and records
of alumni scattered all around the
World. The task of maintaining this
voluminous list falls to Frank J. E.
Turner, an Arts and Commerce
graduate of 1939 and Association
Executive Director, and Mr. Tur-
FRANK J. E. TURNER ner>s secretary, Miss Dorothy Daw
son of Kelowna. The Association office was placed on a full-time basis in
January 1946.
As far as most alumni are concerned, one of the most important
and interesting Association activities is the publishing of the quarterly
magazine by and about grads currently edited by Lawyer Ormonde J. Hall.
In addition to the hundreds of personal notes on alumni, this publication
reports the latest student and University news and plans. All active members receive copies of every issue.
A Board of Management—members of which represent alumnae and
alumni in all walks of life and of nearly every undergraduate degree given
by UBC—controls Association affairs. Members serving on this Board are
elected annually, and include Presidents of all active Branches throughout
B.C., the rest of Canada, and U.S.A. Undergrads automatically have a voice
in alumni affairs, since the A.M.S. President and two other Student Councilors are ex-officio Board members. The present Association President
is Mr. James A. Macdonald, a B.A. '38 and law partner in the firm of
Robon & Macdonald.
It is the responsibility of the governing group to select a Board of
Directors for the Alumni UBC Development Fund—the annual giving programme among alumni which was originally started in 1949. The operation
of this voluntary plan, which is discussed on the succeeding page in this
Tillicum, is obviously one of the major activities of the Association today,
and one which is proving once again that undergrade and grads of this
University are keenly interested in "Alma Mater's" continuing success.

Development Fund
The Alumni - UBC Development
Fund—the first alumni annual giving programme among Canadian
Universities as far as approval is
concerned (the McGill Alma Mater
Fund actually commenced operations sooner)—has given BC Alumni an opportunity of tangibly
expressing their feeling of loyalty
to the one and only UBC.
Now in its third year of operation, this voluntary effort has seen
more than 5,000 alumni contribute
more than $43,000.00 to special University projects such as Furnishings
for the Women's Residences, the
UBC War Memorial Gymnasium, the Sedgewick Memorial, the UBC President's Emergency Fund etc. Justifiably, alumni point with pride to this
achievement in the Fund's relative "infancy" and firmly believe that succeeding generations of students will wish to remember UBC annually in
the same way, thus guaranteeing a steady, if not spectacular, growth in
much-needed student and alumni support. When considered as similar to
income from endowment, this annual giving programme represents a real
and continuous investment.
Very recently, Fund Chairman John M. Buchanan and Alumni President James A. Macdonald jointly annouced the winners of the first 10
regional UBC Alumni Association Scholarships which have been provided
as a result of this programme of practical good will. Under Chairman
Buchanan, who in business life is President of British Columbia Packers
and a B.A. '17, these Scholarships of $250.00 each will again be awarded
next year.
In view of the fact that all winners are either Freshettes or Freshmen at BC (although one or two can elect to start at Victoria College), it
seems more than appropriate to list the winners here.
By regions then, here are the first winners: 1. Orville R. Endicott,
Creston; 2. John P. Sutherland, Rossland, by reversion to William Gregory,
Trail; 3, James D. McGuire, Penticton; 4, Aiko Hori. North Kamloops; 5,
Gordon R. Graham, Prince Rupert; 6, Stewart P. Paul, Dawson Creek; 7,
William D. Burton, Vancouver; 8, John A. Birch, New Westminster; 9,
Mary Lorraine Brown, Victoria; and 10, Julie D. Chianci, Westview.
