STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
Foreword
From the early days of the University of British Columbia, its Students have . published annually a
Handbook jvhieh'i>tovid^d the undergraduates /^itl^ajithentic ,,information
regarding . stuijjfnt activities. In continuing the practice so wett- begun by
former generations of students, the
editors of the present Handbook aim
to give, in concise and readily referable fprm, timely-, information of interest to the entire student community.
The Handhook is the unofficial complement of the University calendar.
It is, however, more intimate and personal; for, whereas the Calendar is
addressed to readers near and far—
those who know the University and
those who do not—the Handbook seeks
to supply information for those who
wish to acquaint themselves with activities on the campus which are not
described   in   the  official  publication.
It is to be hoped that all who read
this little reference work will find information which will be of assistance
to them in choosing those activities
which lie outside the lecture room, the
laboratory and the library.

/4. Jf. S. President's Message
Kla-how-yah Class of '38! As new
members of the University of British
Columbia and of its Student Organization, the Alma Mater Society extends
to you the welcome of the Student
Body and the Student's Council.
Although we are still a young university we have many traditions and
achievements of which we are justly
pleased. These we entrust to you and
challenge you to guard and cherish
them through your college years.
You are entering on a new academic
Ufe, very different from that to which
you were accustomed in high school.
It Is important that you adjust yourself as soon as possible. In order to
derive the greatest benefit from your
college career, you should take part
in non-academic as well as academic
activities. It is to aid In your selection of the former that this handbook
has been compiled. In it you will find
all the information you require concerning the extra-curricular activities
under the control of the Alma Mater
Society.
At this university there are presented many opportunities for a liberal
education,   but   whether   or   not   you 10
UNIVERSITY QE B. O.
take advantage of them depends on
yourself alone. ..No one will force you
to work. Your success depends entirely upon the zeal with which you
apply yourself.
I remind you of our motto—Tuum
Est.

STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
Historical Sketch
In 1890 the Provincial Legislature
passed an Act establishing a body
politic and corporate named "The University of British Columbia". No
material progress was made, however,
until 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 affiliating 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 Vancouver and
Victoria College which was part of it
ceased to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr. H. E.
Young, Minister of Education, in 1907, UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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 1890-91. This Act with its
subsequent admendments, determines
the present constitution of the University.
A site commission, appointed in
1910, recommended the vicinity of
Vancouver and in the following year
the Point Grey site was granted to
the University. The grant 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
sale or lease.
The first Convocation, held on August 1st, 1912, chose Mr. F. L. Carter-
Cotton as first chancellor of the University. In March, 1913, the Lieuten-
ant-Governor-in-Council appointed as
President of the University, F. F.
Wesbrook, M.A., M.D., CM., LLD. On
April 4th, 1918, Dr. R E. McKechnie,
the  present chancellor,  was  elected.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK 13
On the death of President Wesbrook,
October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean
of the Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed Acting President, and on June
1st, 1919, President.
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 Fairview.
Construction work was commenced
on the Science Building at the Point
Grey site in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on
this building was resumed in 1923,
shortly after the great Student Campaign. The Science Building and the
Library, as well as nine other buildings, were completed and ready for
occupancy in the fall of 1925.
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 1931, due to the efforts of the
students, largely, in their "stadium
Campaign", an excellent playing field
was constructed on the campus and
it is hoped that suitable seating accommodation will be provided in the
near future. UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.
Freshman Information
Bureau
In co-operation with Dean Buchanan and the faculty, the Students'
Council have formed this year a
Freshman Information Bureau.
The primary purpose of this bureau
is to advise incoming Freshmen on
proposed courses and extra-curricular
activities. Its suggestions are not
necessarily final to the Freshman but
merely advisory.
The duties of this Bureau will commence on September 20th, one week
before the opening of the University,
and will continue until September
30th, three days after the opening
The personnel of this Bureau consists of eight members of the Alma
Mater Society, preferably Seniors.
The Junior Member, the President of
the W.U.S., the President of Men's
Athletics, the President of the A.M.
U.S., the President of the Sc.M.U.S.,
and the President of the Ag.M.U.S.,
all have permanent representation on
the Bureau. The other two members
are to be appointed by Council before
the opening of the Bureau.
The office of the Bureau will be in
the  Administration  Building.    Fresh-
STUDENTS'  HANDBOOK
men are requested to apply to the
Bureau for advice during the specified
time, although certain members will
be on call for a week following the
opening of the University.
The Bureau is a new venture in
Freshman Training and it is to be
hoped that it will be successful.

THE BOOK EXCHANGE—The purpose of this bureau is to effect the exchange of second-hand books between
students registered at the University
in a manner more convenient and
certain than the haphazard method
of individual lists and notices. It
operates under the supervision of
Students' Council, and is directed by
a manager appointed by Council. The
office of the exchange is located in
the basement of the Arts Building, in
the old "Totem" office. As the exchange was instituted for the benefit
of the students, they are urged to
make full use of it; those with secondhand books for sale to place them in
the hands of the officers of the Exchange, and those seeking books to
enquire here. Watch the "Ubyssey"
for announcements.

the student or elsewhere, report must
be made over the telephone for advice as to procedure. In no case may
the student return to the University
before receiving advice from the
Health Service.
5. Athletic students sustaining injuries: Students must report to the
Health Service as soon after sustaining injuries as possible. Failure to so
report will result in no recommendation being sent forward to the Council in case Medical treatment is necessary, and in no case will the Health
Service be responsible or undertake
to treat an injury where a student
has unsuccessfully attempted to treat
the part over a period of time, before
reporting.      A   signed    authorization
from the Health Service is necessary
before students may obtain treatment
for their Injuries, and apply to Stud
ents' Council for financial assistance.
The above applies to any student
attending the University; the Medical
Service is not available to any other
than athletes.
Liability for  Athletic
Injuries
The University Authorities, the Alma Mater Society, or any subsidiary
club or organization do not assume
any responsibility for the payment of
damages, doctor's bills, or hospital expenses resulting from injuries to players or participants in athletics. Any
compensation shall be deemed to be
a voluntary contribution at sole discretion of Students' Council.
All applicants for this voluntary
contribution must fill out an Accident
Report Form Immediately, in order to
receive a hearing of their request.
These forms may be obtained from
the University Health Service Department, Aud. 306, the office of the Business Secretary, Aud. 303, or from doctors selected by Council. Further,
the applicants must be attended by
those doctors  selected  by Council. 50
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
Organization of the
Student Body
The Student's Council is the governing body, its nine members being
elected by the students late in the
Spring term. This body meets every
Monday night during the term to discuss all motions for student welfare.
The Presidents of the Men's and Women's Undergraduate Societies, the
Presidents of the Men's and Women's
Athletic Societies and the President
of the Literary and Scientific Executive, represent definite bodies of student opinion. These members bring
up matters relative to their own subsidiaries, but are expected to know
and discuss matters outside their own
spheres.
Each of the subsidiary clubs submits a budget early in the fall to its
own governing body, which in turn
submits it to the Council through the
club president Budgets are then
allotted by Council. In addition to
club budgets, special grants may be
made at the discretion of the Council.
Each club has its own executive,
which is elected by undergraduates
interested in the activities of that
club.
The Publications Board is a semi-
independent body, having no representation on Council, though the Editor-in-Chief holds an "A" position.

Three Publications are undertaken
by the Publication Board: The "Ubyssey", the "Totem", and the "Handbook".
The "Ubyssey", now on a firm financial basis, enters its ninth year
as a 5-column, twice-weekly journal.
It appears every Tuesday and Friday
noon throughout the session, except
In examination weeks.
The "Ubyssey" is the University
newspaper, dealing with the current
events of college life. It is managed
entirely by the students. A Literary
Supplement published twice a year is
open to contributions. The Publications Board is affiliated with the Pacific Intercollegiate Press Association,
and exchange news from other colleges in Canada and the United States
is featured.
The "Totem" is the University Annual, the traditional publication to the
graduating class. A special staff prepares this annual, its editor being a
member of the Senior or Junior year
of any faculty.
The 'Handbook" is that interesting
little document which now rests, in
all probability, between the thumb and
forefinger of your left hand.
Inter-University Exchange of
Undergraduates
Through this scheme the National
Federation of Canadian University
Students hopes to most effectively
serve  the  fundamental  purposes   for UNIVERSITY OF B. "C
STUDENTS'  HANDBOOK
which it was formed. The scheme offers an opportunity to Canadian University Students, without extra expense to themselves, to receive a
year's study at a university in another
part of Canada.
Briefly speaking, the Exchange
Scheme provides that each university, through its selection committee
of a member of faculty and two students, shall nominate, on application,
any number of students not exceeding
one per cent, of the enrolment. The
only prerequisites are that the student desiring to take advantage of the
scheme must have completed at least
two years of study, with at least Second Class standing in the Second
Year, shall be an undergraduate below the final year, and be representative in a general way of the student
body.
Through the co-operation of the various university authorities in promoting this scheme, it is provided that
exchange students are exempt from
tuition fees, which, except in extreme
cases, is more than sufficient compensation for the railway fee involved in
effecting the exchange.
The President of the Students' Council is the representative of the N. F.
C. U. S. and can give full information respecting the Exchange Scheme.
Curator
The Curator is the keeper of all
the athletic equipment of the Alma
Mater Society. He is in his office in
the south-east corner of the Gymnasium at certain hours as posted and
all equipment must be obtained from
him and returned to him at the end
of the season. For those desirous of
playing Canadian Rugby, a system
has been introduced whereby a student may, after depositing a nominal
sum with the Curator, obtain a complete outfit for the season. His deposit is refunded when he returns the
outfit at the end of the season.
Requisition System
No bills will be honoured by the
Students' Council unless they are covered by purchase order from the Business Secretary. The business houses
of this city have been informed of this
ruling and it will be rigidly observed
by Council.
Undergraduate Societies
The Undergraduate Societies comprise the Women's Undergraduate
Society, the Men's Undergraduate Society, and the subsidiary class organizations. 56
UNIVERSITY OF  B.  C.
Membership in the Undergraduate
Societies is conferred automatically on
all students at the University. The
Women's Undergraduate Executive
is composed of President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer, President
of Nursing, representative of Agriculture, and Vice-Presidents of the other
rlass organizations. The Men's Undergraduate executive is composed of
President, Secretary-Treasurer, and
Presidents of the Arts Men's, the Science and the Agriculture Undergraduate Societies. The class presidents
are members of the Undergraduate
Society of the faculty to which they
belong; thus the class organizations
are connected with the Undergraduate
Societies.
The duties of the Undergraduate
Societies are mainly social; also, the
president of each society is a member of a standing committee on discipline, see By-Law No. 31 of the
Alma Mater Constitution).

Points of Interest
THE MEMORIAL WINDOWS —
The Canadian Jubilee Memorial Windows are one of the most recent additions to the Library. They are situated near the western end of the main
concourse, but may also be viewed
from the hallway below. Presented to
the University by an unknown donor,
the windows were unveiled on November 28, 1928, by the Honorable S. F.
Tolmie, Premier of British Columbia.
WAR MEMORIAL—Inside the main
doorway of the Science Building are
erected two war memorials—one "to
commemorate the supreme sacrifices
and willing services of the members
of the 'D' Co'y, 196th Battalion, C.
E. F., Western Universities, in the
Great War, 1914-1918;" and the other
"in honour of the B. C. reinforcing
platoon, 196th Western Universities
Overseas  Battalion,  C. E. F."
THE SUN DIAL —The Sun Dial,
with its oblong face and engraving of
the Cairn and the Lions, is a familiar
object to all visitors of, the Botanical
Gardens. It was presented to the University in 1926 by B. S. Hartley (Professor of Mathematics—retired, 1931)
who designed it especially for the position in which it now stands.
THE BURNETT COLLECTION—
The Library of the University con
tains a collection of curious relics,
rated as the most complete representative Polynesian collection in the
world. The collection was made by
Dr. Frank Burnett, who, during a period of 35 years, sailed around the
cannibal  islands in the South Pacific
Among the exhibits are figures of
Polynesian gods, native implements,
several skulls, and samples of native
dress. Bill Tansley superintends this
museum of relics.
STAMP COLLECTION—The University stamp collection comprises the
postage stamps of Canada and the
early British North America colonies;
it contains many interesting stamps,
dating from the time of Queen Victoria to the present day. This collection is not yet complete, and all new
contributions will be welcomed. Those
interested may have access to the collection through the registrar.
TOTEM POLES—The Totem Poles
now situated in the Botanical Gardens, were presented in 1927 by the
Alumni Association. They are from
the Musquiam Reserve, Point Grey,
and are the last two of the tribe. The
pole on the right is the Capilano Pole,
a carving of the celebrated Capilano
Chief;   on the left is the Tsem-Lano UNIVERSITY OF  B   C.
Pole, symbolic of the magical powers
of Tsem-Lano, a great Musquiam warrior.
PAINTINGS IN THE LIBRARY—
The series of paintings by John Innes which hang in the Library, represent early scenes in the history of
British Columbia.
GEOLOGY MUSEUM—The Geology
Museum is located in the southern
wing of the Applied Science Building.
It contains valuable and interesting
collections of material illustrative of
both physical and historical branches
of geology and new additions are constantly being made.
THE CAIRN—The Cairns was first
set up as a memorial of the province-
wide campaign in 1922, when a group
of enthusiastic students marched from
Fairview to the new University and
dedicated the Cairn. Only a skeleton
of the present University stood then.
The Cairn Service for Freshmen,
which was inaugurated in 1928, has
become a tradition at the University.

Athletics
It is the aim of the Men's and
Women's Athletic Association to promote clean sport, and to prevent the
unhealthy condition resulting from indoor work of the student. There are
coaches for all sports, who give their
time voluntarily and who have been
star athletes. They have been carefully selected with the influence which
they have on their athletes in mind;
with your support they try to develop
first sportsmen, and second, a winning team.
The University does not seek to
train star athletes, but to develop
young and inexperienced athletes.
There are many different sports and
teams of all calibre in each sport; the
places on teams are given without
favoritism or prejudice; nationality,
age, experience, pedigree, bankroll,
past records, etc., do not mean a
thing; the place is open for the best
man. There is an opportunity for
everyone who is physically fit, and we
are anxious for you to take advantage
of this—it is to your interest and ours.
To those of you who are not capable
of active physical participation, we
offer positions managing these teams.
This is an excellent stepping-stone to
executive work. 66

Here we allow the Freshmen the
opportunity to play on any team on

first practice and go on out!

MEN'S  ATHLETIC  ASSOCIATION
(Max Stewart, President)
Membership in the Men's Athletic
Association is automatically conferred
on all men students in the Alma Mater
Society. The executive of the body
composed of the presidents of all
branches of sport, is responsible for
the organization, supervision and administration of athletics for men.
The Association has been recognized
as a local board of the Amateur Athletic Union of Canada. Any athlete
intending to play on any outside team
must obtain written permission from
Men's Athletics; if such is not done,
the athlete is liable for suspension
from all amateur athletics.
To encourage a man to stick to the
sport he is best suited for, we give
our highest athletic award to an athlete who measures up to a certain
standard in that sport. However, most
of the Big Blocks go to the Major
Sports, the small letters to the Minor
Sports, and the plain letters to the
Sub-Minor Sports. The second team
in a Major Sport has rating of Minor
Sport, while the third team in a Major Sport and the second team of a
Minor Sport have Sub-Minor rating.
The sports are classified into four
groups as follows, due to achievement
and interest shown:
(a) Major: Basketball, Canadian
Rugby, English Rugby, Track,
Soccer.
(b) Sub-Major:   Swimming.
(c) Minor: Badminton, Golf, Grass
Hockey, Ice Hockey, Rowing.
(d) Sub-Minor: Boxing, Fencing,
Gymnasium, Outdoors, Skating.
BIG BLOCK CLUB
This Club is entirely separate from
the Awards Committee, membership
being automatically conferred to holders of the U. B. C. Big Block Award.
Its aims are to bring about a unity of
spirit and effort for the furtherance of
Varsity sport and to keep in touch
with preparatory schools in order to
advise prospective athletes for University sports.   Members of the Club UNIVERSITY OF  B.  C.
often handle the seat sale for athletic

outstanding American colleges. An
"English Rugby Club Pep Meeting" is
an annual event, usually to give publicity to an important match. Hours
of practice will be posted on the Notice Board and in the Ubyssey.
TRACK
The Track Club is looking forward
to another successful year. The meet
with the College of Puget Sound,
which was won last year by U.B.C,
will be held this year on our Campus.
Indoor meets will be held this fail.

Frosh meet, the Road race, inter-class
meets, the Cross Country, and the historic Arts '20 Relay.
SOCCER
Soccer has regained its status as a
major sport and will field teams in
senior competition and the Junior Alliance. Inter-class soccer remains on
the program and keen rivalry is pre- UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.

eluded in the curriculum. Papers are
given by professors and members, who
number twenty-five, and are chosen
from honour students of the two upper years and graduates. Meetings

NEWMAN CLUB
The Newman Club is the organization of Catholic Students on the University Campus. Its object is to bring
together Catholic Students, each of
whom is automatically a member upon
entering the University. Meetings are
held at frequent intervals and notices
of them sent to the members through
the mails to their residences.
Fraternities
Essentially, fraternities and sororities are merely groups of students,
with common ideals and a natural liking for one another, organized into
secret societies of from fifteen to forty
members each, and they may be
"local", "national", or "international".
Men's and women's fraternities operate in similar ways.
The system whereby these organizations make contacts with prospective
members is known as "rushing". It
consists of association by members of
the fraternity with the prospect
through social affairs and other means
in order to become acquainted with
him, and is carried on according to
definite rules agreed to by all the
fraternities. At the end of the rushing season the fraternity decides
whether or not it wants the person
concerned as a member, and if it does,
one of its members gives him a "bid"—
or invitation to join.
From the Freshmans viewpoint the
rushing season is an opportunity to
"size up" the various fraternities. He
often finds it very difficult to make up
his mind, particularly if a number of
fraternities are rushing him. Thus
the best course for him is to get acquainted with them as early in the
term as possible so that he may form 104
UNIVERSITY  OF  B.   C.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
105
his own impartial opinion of each of
them, and thus may not allow himself to be "high-pressured" into joining one which is not best suited to
him. It is extremely important to
him, if he joins a fraternity at all, to
join one whose members he really
esteems as individuals, and at the
same time whose ideals are similar
to his own, for under other conditions
than these fraternity life would be a
total failure. Thus if he is not very
enthusiastic about the fraternity or
fraternities that may rush him, he
will be much wiser to refuse their
bids. A more desirable one may rush
him later on in the same or a subsequent year, for sometimes students
are bid as late as their fourth year.
The rushee should investigate thoroughly and impartially the fraternity
question. Firstly he must decide the
question, "Should I join a fraternity?"
And secondly he must ask, "Can I
afford it?" A fraternity entails considerable financial obligations and he
should know exactly what these are
before accepting a bid. Concerning
these problems, and also concerning
the rushing rules, he may obtain complete information from any member
of a fraternity that is rushing him.
But whether he joins a fraternity
or not he should always remember
that he owes his first loyalty to his
university and its activities.

Alma Mater, daughter of the years,
The great of other days are with
thee yet;
Speak  thou  their  high  faith  in  our
duller ears,
Forbid us to forget.
Alma Mater, watcher of the hours.
Thou lookest on the mountains and
the sea,
And rulest in the might of other powers
In loftier majesty.
Alma Mater, feeder of the flame,
High hopes and noble purposes are
thine—
On us, whose pulses quicken at thy
name,
Grant that the light may shine.
Alma Mater, mother of our love,
Many the paths we tread in future
days—
Yet naught that time shall bring can
e'er remove
Thy memory or thy praise.

My Girl's A Hullabaloo
My girl's a hullabaloo,
She wears the Gold and Blue;
She goes to Varsity too
Just like the others do.
(Chorus)
And in my future life
She's going to be my wife.
How in the world d'ja find that out?
She told me so.
She goes to all the games
Just like the other dames,
I fork out all the change
Just like the others do, etc.
When we go walking
She does the talking,
I do the squeezing,
She does the teazing, etc.
As we grow older
She will grow bolder,
And she will hold her
Head on my shoulder, etc.
There Is A Tavern In The Town
There is a tavern in the town, in the
town,
And there my dear love sits him down,
sits him down,
And   drinks   his   wine   'mid   laughter
free,
And never, never thinks of me.

(Chorus)
Fare thee well, for I must leave thee,
Do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends
must part.
Adieu,    adieu   kind    friends;    adieu,
adieu, adieu;
I can no longer stay with you, stay
with you;
I'll hang my harp on a weeping willow
tree,
And may the world go well with thee.
Hail To The Gold And Blue
Sons of our Alma Mater,
Gird you against the foe,
Count not the cost but fight boys,
And on to victory we'll go.
Hearts that are never weary,
Hearts that are brave and true,
Glorious the cause and worthy,
Hail to the Gold and Blue.
When in thy halls we gather,
May hope attend our way,
When from thy courts we wander,
Let faith and truth alone hold sway.
Go  forth in  exultation,
Ever our pledge renew,
Source of our inspiration,
Hail to the Gold and Blue.
