HINTS TO THE FROSH
1. Carry a copy of the Handbook all the
time. Read it right through; you need
the information it contains.
2. Attend all Alma Mater Meetings.
3. Learn the U. B. C. songs and yells.
4. Use the freshman information bureau.
It's there to help you.
5. Watch notice boards and the "Ubyssey" for notices of clubs in which you are
Interested.
6. The best way to get in touch with
anyone is through the Arts Letter Rack.
7. Talk over your problems with your
dean. First year women are especially
urged to consult Dean Bollert on all their
Varsity problems.
8. Put all your spare interest into some
activity; Varsity will mean ten times
more. Attend as many University affairs
as you can.
9. Do your work every day. Keeping
up is easier than catching up.
10.   Remember:   this  is   your  University.
First loyalty comes to it and its activities.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
PRESIDENTS FOREWORD
This Handbook, which is published by
students for students, is issued in the
hope that it will be of special service to
the newcomer. It aims to provide information which will enable the new student
to reach an informed decision with respect to the relative value Which membership in the different teams, clubs and societies has to offer.
All too frequently students fall into the
error of regarding participation in these
distinctively student organizations as the
antithesis of the work done in the lecture
room and in the laboratory. Such activities are accordingly unduly despised by
the bookworm and are excessively popular with the intellectually indifferent. The
student with a due sense of proportion
will never allow himself to become the
victim of conflicting interests.
To all students, new and old, I extend
the University's cordial welcome, and express the hope that in this Handbook they
will find a guide to profitable activity
and pleasant association.
L. S. KLINCK.

A.M.S. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
May I, as another undergraduate, welcome you the class of
1941, to this University. As Freshmen you are entitled to all the
privileges that the University
offers — but at the same time in
your hands rests her future reputation. Very recently Sir Edward
Beatty said: "The fact that modern
education is solving the problems
facing our country today has long
since been exploded as a myth.
Canada is not producing from her
schools dividends that justify the
huge sums invested in them." 1
believe that out of this University
can arise the kind of leadership
that will be capable of solving
the adverse conditions in our
province and country, but it can
only be achieved when we start
thinking of other people in a totally new kind of way.
University life has everything
to offer you. What you make ot
it is "up to you." (Tuum Est.)
DAVID E. CAREY. 14
UNIVERSITY OP B. C.
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 McGil)
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,
when he introduced a "University Endowment Act." This Act was followed in 1908 by an Act establishing and
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
U
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-ln-Councll appointed as
President of the University, F. F.
Wesbrook, M.A., M.D., CM., LLD. On
April 4th, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnle,
the  present chancellor, was elected.
On the death of President Westbrook October 20th, 1918, L. S. Kllnk,
Dean  of the  faculty  of Agriculture, 16
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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 1928,
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.
The gymnasium was completed in
1929 and presented to the University
by the Alma Mater Society.
In 1931, due to the efforts of the
students, largely in their "Stadium
Campaign," an excellent playing field
was constructed on the campus. This
past summer, a fine concrete stadium, capacity 1,600, complete with
showers, badminton courts and offices, together with bleachers, capac-

needed  seating  requirements.

STUDENT PASS SYSTEM
This term, a student pass system
is being inaugurated whereby in exchange for a slight increase in the
A. M. S. fees a pass is given each
student entitling him to admission to
certain Varsity affairs. These include
such events as major athletic meets
and games, Players' Club and Musical Society productions, debates and
class party. The pass is not transferable.
RADIO BROADCASTS
In an endeavour to make still
stronger the link with the general
public, a series of radio programmes
have been arranged to be broadcast
weekly this fall from a local station.
The students themselves, working
under the L. S. E., will be in charge
of the broadcasts, which, of a half
hour's duration, will include drama, debates, music, short papers and varieties. The success of such a venture is
highly important, but depends largely
on the co-operation and enthusiasm
of the student body.
NOTICE BOARDS
Notice Boards are placed in every
University building and in the space
between the Arts and Auditorium
Buildings   (the  Quad.).  Students  are

end of the main concourse in the
Library. Presented to the University
by an unknown donor the windows
were' unveiled- on November 28, 1928,
by the Hon: S. F. Tolmie, Premier of
British Columbia.
Inside the main doorway of the
Science Building are 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-'18;" and
the other "in honor of the B. C. reinforcing platoon, 196th Western Universities Overseas Battalion, C.E.F."
The Sun Dial, with its oblong face
and engravings 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 Library of the University contains the most complete representar
tive Polynesian collection of curio
relics in the world. It was collected 26

by Dr. Frank Burnett, who during a
period of 35 years, sailed around the
cannibal islands in the South Pacific. Bill Tansley superintends this
museum.
The University Stamp Collection
comprises the postage stamps of Canada and the early British North
America colonies. It contains many
stamps dating from the time of
Queen1 Victoria until 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.
The beautiful memorial Japanese
Lantern and Garden situated near the
botanical gardens was presented by
the friends of Inazo Nitobe to the
University. On August 29, 1935 th-j
University made formal acceptance of
this memorial to a great student and
an apostle of international goodwill.
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 famous Capilano Chief; on the
left is the Tsem-Lano Pole, symbolic
of the magical powers of TsemrLano,
a great Musquiam warrior.
A series of paintings by John Innes
which hang In the Library, represent
early scenes in the history of British
Columbia,
The Geology Museum is located in
the southern wing of the Applied Science Building. It contains valuable
and interesting material illustrative
of both physical and historical geology and new additions are constantly being made.
The Cairn was first set up as a
memorial of the province wide campaign in 1922, when a group of enthusiastic students matched from
Fairview to Point Grey in an endeavour to have the university site
moved from the Fairview shacks.
The Cairn service for Freshmen
which was inaugurated in 1928 has
become a tradition at the University.
Through the efforts of Mr. John
Ridington, University Librarian, an
extensive art collection composed of
185 volumes, 200 reproductions and 40
large pictures specially framed were
donated to the University by the Carnegie Corporaion in New York. This
collection has been installed in the
Art Room of the library. UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK

Another gift of the Carnegie Corporation to the University is the Library of Congress Catalogue, situated
in the main lobby of the Library.
This Catalogue, a collection of more
than 1,500,000 printed cards, is valued
at $65,000. There are only two others
in Canada.
This past spring, the University was
made the recipient of an unique gift
in the form of a valuable collection
of animal heads, now mounted in
room 100, Applied Science Building.
The heads are exceedingly fine specimens of big game to be found in the
wilds of B. C, and were collected and
presented to the University by a local
man, Mr. G. L. Pop, world-famed big
game hunter.
A long-needed addition to the University is the Stadium, on the playing field, built during the summer
months. The main section, of concrete,
and seating 1,600 persons, is completely up-to-date, containing showers,
chafing rooms, handball courts and
offices. It was constructed with the

dances.
Undergraduate Balls — Each faculty
is allowed to give one general dance

students escort the men.
FRATERNITIES
Fraternities and sororities are
groups of students with common
ideals and a liking for one another,
organized into secret societies of from
fifteen to forty members. "Rushing,"
the system whereby these organizations contact prospective members, is
carried on according to rules agreed
to by all the fraternities. It consists of
members contacting 'rushees' through
social affairs in order to become acquainted with him. At the end of the 36
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
rushing season if the fraternity decides it wants the person as a member one of its members gives him a
'bid' or invitation to join.
From the prospect's point of view
the rushing season is an opportunity
to form an impartial opinion of the
various fraternities. It is extremely
important to him if he Joins a fraternity at all to join one whose members he really esteems as individuals,
and whose ideals are similar to his
own. Otherwise fraternity life will be
a total failure. The prospect often
finds it very difficult to make up his
mind, particularly if a number of fraternities are rushing him. If he is
not very enthusiastic about the ones
that are rushing him he will be much
wiser to refuse their bids as a more
desirable one may rush him later.
Some students are bid as late as
their fourth year.
The rushee should thoroughly investigate the fraternity question before joining. Information regarding
financial obligations involved — which
are considerable — may be obtained
from any member of the fraternity
rushing him.
Whether he joins a fraternity or
not he should always remember that
he owes first loyalty to his university
and its activities.

STUDENTS'  COUNCIL
The Students' Council is the governing body, its nine members being
elected 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 Associations and the president of the
Literary and Scientific Executive represent definite bodies of student opinion. A Junior Member is elected to
direct the affairs of the freshman
class during the first term. 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 to Council early In the
fall term. Budgets are then alloted
by the council which may make additional special grants at its own discretion.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
43
Each club has Its own executive
elected by Its members.
Two regular meetings of the Alma
Mater Society are held each year,
one In the first two weeks of the
fall term and one during the last
week in March.
At these an account of student
affairs is placed before the student
body and matters of special importance are discussed from the floor to
enable Council to ascertain the wishes
of the majority.
The Publications Board was formerly represented on Council but is
now a semi-independent body, the
editor-in-chief of which holds an "A"

liberal or radical minded.

SONGS
HAIL, U. B. C.
(Verse)
We wear the blue and the gold
of the victors,
We are the men of the U.B.C.
All other teams acknowledge us
masters.
We are strong in adversity.
Work for the day and work for
the morrow,
We are the ones who will do our
share.
Shouting  in  joy  and  silent  in
sorrow,
Bravery conquers care!
(Chorus)
Hail! U.B.C..
Our glorious University.
You stand for aye
Between the mountains and the
sea;
All through life's way,
Let's sing Kla-how-yah Varsity
Tuum Est wins the day
And we'll push on to victory!

ALMA MATER
Alma Mater, guardian of our youth,
Fair   is   the   laurel   wreath   that
crowns thy brow,
Friend of our country and the friend
of truth
Thy children hail thee now.
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.
—H. T. J. Coleman. 12S

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.
THE SENIOR
I'm tired of walking uphill
I long for an automobile;
When I get a jag on,
I need a gas wagon;
I'm tired of walking uphill.
I'm tired of living alone;
I want a wee wife of my own;
Someone to caress me,
To wash and undress me,
I'm tired of living alone.
As a beauty I am not a star;
There are others more handsome by far;
My face I don't mind it,
For I am behind it,
It's the people in front get
the jar — some jar. 130 UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
