51 Foreword
In accordance with custom, the Editor
has requested me to write the Foreword.
In the brief space allotted to me, I cannot do more than acknowledge this
courtesy and extend a word of welcome
to all the students, especially to those
of the First Year. This welcome is sincere and hearty because I believe that
among those who are coming to the
University this fall for the first time,
there are young men and women who
are as well endowed, and as earnest
in their pursuit of learning as were any
of their predecessors.
As these young people enter upon this
new stage in their academic careers, I
congratulate them on the opportunities
which are theirs to lay the foundations
of a sound education. Those who have
the energy, the determination and the
ability to become students in the best
sense of that word I welcome cordially
and without reserve. These, I am confident, when they enter into the larger
freedom which life in the University
affords, will not relax that stern self-
discipline to which they have accustomed themselves. May all success attend  their  efforts.
President, Alma Mater Society
J To the Class of '34
We welcome you as members of the
Alma Mater Society and admit you to
our secret, you are now students of the
finest University in existence. This is no
boast. It matters not what others think.
Convince yourselves that this is true,
each one of you, then the name of our
University will go "down through the
Your seniors are just beginning to
realize how hard it is going to be to
say, "Good-bye." But their time is almost up and they must relinquish the
prize to you. "It is thine"—but only in
Our halls are still almost new but already, if you listen carefully, you can
hear echoes of those who have passed
by. What are they saying? "Sully not
her name." All we hope of you as fellow
students is that you will whisper back,
"We'll  try."

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 naipe of Vancouver College. First
Year work in Arts was offered by Victoria High School when it became Victoria College by affiliation with McGill
University In 1902. In the same year Vancouver College undertook the Second Year
in Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating
the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia,
which, in the same year, established at
Vancouver the McGill University College
of British Columbia. In 1915 the University of British Columbia was opened and
the McGill University College of Vancouver and Victoria College which was a
part of it, ceased to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr. H. E. Young,
Minister of Education, in 1907, when he
Introdut'i-d a "University Endowment
Act." This Act was followed In 1908 hy
an Act establishing and incorporating
the University of British Columbia and
repealing the old Act of 1890-91. This
Act, with its subsequent amendments,
determines the present constitution of
the University.
A site commission, appointed in 1910,
recommended  the  vicinity  of  Vancouver
9 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 Lieutenant-Governor-in-
Council appointed as President of the
University. F. F. Wesbrook, M.A., M.D.,
CM., LL.D. On April 4th, 1918, Dr. R. E.
McKechnie, the present chancellor, was
elected. 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 Fair-
Construction work was commenced on
the Science Building at the Point Grey
site in 1914, but was interrupted because
of war conditions. AVork on this building
was resumed in 1923 shortly after the
great Student Campaign. The Science
Building and 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,

granted by the University for the first
Organization of the
Student Body
The Students' Council is the governing
body, its nine members being elected by
th> 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 Meri'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 subsidiarj 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 ar<> then allotted by Council.

New Eligibility Rules
New eligiblity rules were found necessary by the loose and inexplicit manner
in which By-law No. 16 of the Constitution of the Alma Mater Society of the
1'iiiversity of British Columbia is drawn
The need of some sort of rules will not
be questioned by anyone as the essence
of University life. A high scholastic-
standing is necessary and if we are to
have students representing us as a University, they should not be deficient in
this respect. However it is not the desire
to make athletics exclusive, but to eliminate that undesirable type of Undergraduate who attends University without scholastic achievement as the main
motive, so that a place on a team means
both athletic and scholastic proficiency.
With this in view the following change
to By-law No. 16 concerning athletics is
1. Students of first year shall not represent the L'niversity in more than one
athletic activity until they have obtained
a standing of 50ro or more in the Christmas examinations.
2. Repeating, partial and unclassified
students may participate in one athletic
activity until the fall mid-term examinations. If at these examinations or any
other subsequent set of examinations
during the year an average of 55% is not
obtained, then these students may not
participate further until such percentage
is obtained.
27 3. Students of ail years may not proceed further with any athletic activity
if they fail to obtain an average of 50%
in the mid-term or Christmas examination. As soon as an average of 50% is
obtained the activity may be resumed in
the cass of having failed previously.
4. All students must carry at least
nine units to represent the University in
any athletic  activity.
a. Students asked to withdraw at
Christmas who return in the Spring to a
partial coursr may not represent the
University  in any athletic activity.
6. The method of enforcing these rules
shali be: The President of Men's Athletics, or his appointee, shali obtain a
list of all men playing the various sports
and submit it to the Faculty Committee
on Student Affairs. This committee shall
recommend to Students' Council the
withdrawal from athletics of those students who have not come up to the required standards as outlined above. The
final decision on this matter shall rest
with  the  Students'  Council.
1. No student shali hold a "B" office
in any class executive work whose general scholarship average is less than 50%.
2. The class executive of the Freshman
year shall not be elected until after the
Christmas  examinations.
1. No student shall hold a "B" office
on the Publication Board whose general
scholastic average is less than 50%.
1. No   freshman   shaii   engage   in   any
major activity  of  the  Debates  Union  or
the Musical Society during the first term
should he or she obtain below an average
50% in the mid-term examinations or
during the second term if he or she obtains an average below 50% in the Christmas examinations.
2. No freshman shall be eligible for
the Players' Club unless he or she obtains on average of at least 60% in the
Junior Matriculation examinations and
he or she shail be automatically disqual -
fied for membership during the remainder
of the session should he or she obtain an
average of less than 50'/, in the Christmas examinations.
3. No student shall be a member of the
above clubs unless he or she is registered for at least nine units.
4. No student shall remain a member
of the aforementioned clubs should he
or she fail to obtain an average of at
least 50% on any set of examinations nor
shall he or she be again eligible until he
or she has again obtained an average of
The method of enforcing these rules
for clubs other than those coming under
Men's Athletics shall be: The president
of the organization con■•erned, or his appointee, shall send a list of those concerned to the Faculty Committee on
Student Affairs. This Committee shall
recommend to Students' Council the
withdrawal from the organizations of
those students who have not come up to
the required standards outlined above.
The final decision on this matter shall
rest with the Students'  Council.
29 Freshman Initiation
The Initiation will be held on the
campus. The following is a tentative
program,  subject  to change:
1. The period of initiation will approximately last until the end of the
second week of the first term and will
end by a night of hazing.
2. Placards, displaying the bearer's
name, must be worn up to and at the
Frosh  Reception.
3. Green berets must be procured
and worn by both men and women.
These are procurable at the Curator's
office at a nominal sum. The period
during which these must be worn is
not yet definite but will probably be
the same as for the placards.
4. All Freshmen must carry a copy
of the Handbook.
5. Freshmen must attend all Alma
Mater meetings called  for  Freshmen.
6. At these meetings full information regarding initiation will be given.
The heads of the various Varsity organizations will address the Freshman as fellow students.
7. Freshmen Class Elections will
not be held until after the results of
the Christmas examinations are
8. The Initiation Committee will
act as a court before which Freshmen desirous of being excused may
appear. The same committee will also
function as a court to enforce regulations.
9. The hazing "ceremonies" will be
performed by  the Sophomore Class.
The initiation program, it is hoped,
will help to make the Freshmen realize
that once the hazing is over they are
then men and women of the University
and create a certain "esprit de corps"
among everyone. Any "horseplay" on
either side will be severely dealt with.
Watch the "Ubyssey" for dates.
31 Undergraduate Societies
Tlie I'ndergraduate Societies comprise
the Women's Undergraduate Society,
the Men's Undergraduate Society and
subsidiary   class   organizations.
Membership in the Undergraduate
Societies is conferred automatically on
all students at the University. The Women's I'ndergraduate executive is coin-
posed of president, vice-president, secretary-treasurer, president of Nursing,
representative of Agriculture, and vice-
presidents of the other class 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
The Presidents for this session are:
Women's Undergraduate Society, Jean
Telford; Men's Undergraduate Society,
Douglas Pollock; Arts Men's Undergraduate Society, Robert McLarty; Science
Undergraduate Society. Kenneth Martin; Agriculture Undergraduate Society
Langford  Godfrey.
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 respect our ideals and
sportsmanship to the fullest. They have
been carefully selected with the influence which they have on their athletes in mind; they only ask for your
cooperation and support.
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 any favoritism or prejudice; nationality, age, experience,
pedigree, bank roll, 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.
Here we allow freshmen the opportunity to play on any team on which
they can win a place. The Freshman
classes in the past have had men on the
first teams in every sport; that Is the
challenge that they leave. Watch the
notice boards for the first practice and
get  out  to  it.
33 Men's Athletics
(Charles   Schultz,   President)
Membership in the Men's Athletic
Association is automatically conferred
on all men students in the Alma Mater
Society. The executive of the Association, 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.
(b) Minor: Boxing, Ice Hockey, Rowing,   Soccer,   Swimming,   Tennis.
(c) Sub-Minor:      Badminton,      Golf,
Grass Hockey.
(d) Unclassed: Fencing, Outdoors Club
A  single  executive  handles  the   business   of   the   following   clubs   for   both
men   and   women:   Badminton,   Fencing,
Outdoors,   Skating,   Swimming,   Tennis.
(Wilfred Knight, President)
This Club was organized in 1926. Its

(F. C. Buckland, President)
The Boat Club is now in its eighth
season and is one of the largest athletic clubs in the University. It has no

College, Vancouver Rowing Club and
the University of Washington take
place   in  March.
(John   Foubtster.   President)
(Marion  Shelly, Vice-President)
The Swimming Club is an organization for men and women. Its purpose is
to give those interested a chance to improve their swimming or to learn how
to swim. A tank is engaged for at least
four practices a week and an expert
coach is provided. Competition is offered
with local clubs, on the Victorian Invasion and probably this year at Banff
and Saskatchewan. There is also an
inter-class meet in November for the
Allan & Boultbee Trophy.
(H.   J.   Barratt,  President)
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. An attempt will be made to inaugurate Presentation Day into Big
Block  Day  by  holding a dance.
(Gavin   Dirom,   President)
The Track Club is among the four
Major sports and has the greatest number of participants of any sport at the
University. The program for the year
with   tentative  dates  is  as  follows:
1. Western Canada Intercollegiate
Meet,  Edmonton—October  11.
2. Frosh-Varsity Meet, Varsity Oval—

(Gerald Ballentyne, President)
The major events of the Club's activities are the McKechnie Cup series, the
Miller Cup series and the Intermediate
and Freshman series. On entering the
McKechnie Cup league the University
won the trophy for three consecutive
years, lost it in 1926, won it again in
1927, and in 1928 and 1929 and 1930
lost it again to Vancouver "Rep."
The Club is very fortunate in securing the services of experienced players
as coaches for its teams.
Practices will be held as follows:
Seniors and First Intermediates—Wednesday at 3 p.m.; Second Intermediates
and Frosh—Tuesday and Thursday at
3  p.m.
(Ernest Roberts, President)
Last year the Soccer Club took a
great step towards its former position.
The Senior team finished in a high
position in the Third Division of the
V. & D. League, while the Juniors
reached the finals in their league. This
year three teams will be entered and
all men interested in Soccer are requested to communicate with the President through the letter rack.
This Club was formed in 1927 for the
benefit of those interested in skating.
Arrangements are made for members
to meet one evening each week at the
Arena. Men's and Women's teams are
entered in the Rotary Ice Carnival in
(Earl Vance. President)
Canadian Rugby, one of the four
Major sports on the campus, has been
favored with a great deal of success
since its advent to Varsity sport circles
seven years ago. Last year the Senior
team after losing the Big Four championship and subsequently the Lipton
cup, defeated a strong aggregation
from the University of Saskatchewan
to annex the inter-collegiate championship of Western  Canada.
This Fall the Club will enter teams
in the Intermediate and Junior leagues
as well as in the Big Four. The trip
to the Prairies, during which the Senior team will play against the University of Alberta at Edmonton on October
22, and Saskatchewan at Saskatoon on
the 25th. should prove an incentive for
Freshmen athletes.
(Gordon Stead, President)
This Club is open to all men students of the University. It purposes to
give all men organized physical training. Classes in the Swedish system of
gymnastics, which includes apparatus
and floor work, are held twice weekly
in the Gymnasium under an experienced  instructor.
The Ice Hockey Club enters only one
team in the Junior league. This Club
has the credit of winning the B. C.
Senior Amateur title in 1921. The Club
visits Victoria on the annual Invasion
and meets a team from Victoria on the
return Invasion.
The Governor's Cup, donated for inter-class athletics, is competed for during the entire year by the various
classes. In this way all students able
and willing to take part in athletics
are enabled to show their ability and
help their class in a really tangible
The big athletic, intra-mural event of
the year has always been the Arts '20
Relay Race. Each Spring every class
turns out a team of eight men to compete  for  the  cup.
The Arts '30 Inter-faculty Road Race
will be held in the Fall term. This race
is run entirely on the campus and each
team  consists of eight  men.
(Jeckell Fairley. President)
A Club for those students who are
interested in mountain climbing and
skiing. Hikes are held nearly every
week of the fall term. During the
spring term the Club's cabins on
Grouse Mountain are the Headquarters
for skiing activities on the Plateau and
neighboring  ridges.
(Irvine Keenleyside, President)
The Fencing Club is a Men's and Women's organization open to all interested. It is proposed to have an instructor come out to the Gymnasium for beginners and for those who desire
further lessons. There is a cup for competition within the Club and if enough
talent is forthcoming, there will be a
meet with the University of Washington.
This Club has been formed for tins
purpose of promoting inter-faculty and
intercollegiate boxing and also to coach
inexperienced men. Two turnouts a
week are held and two coaches (one for
men up to 135 pounds and the other for
those over 135 pounds) will instruct.
A statement of physical fitness must be
haiided in by each applicant. There will
also be a small fee for coaching expenses. Meets are arranged in Washington, Victoria and locally. Boxing is
regulated and governed by intercollegiate rules; weights range from 112

Undergraduate Exchange
Through this scheme the National Federation of Canadian University Students
hopes to most effectively serve the fundamental purpose for 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,
upon application, any number of students
not exceeding one per cent, of the enrolment. The only prerequisite is that the
student desiring to take advantage of
the scheme must have completed at least
two years of study and be representative
in a general way of the student body.
Through the cooperation of the various
university authorities in promoting this
national scheme, it is provided that exchange scholars 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 Junior Member on Council
is our representative on the N.F.C.U.S.
and can give full information respecting
the Exchange Scheme.
68 The Manager System
This system of management was adopted at the close of the session of
1928-1929 by the Alma Mater Society on
the recommendation of the Finance
Committee which was appointed by the
Students' Council to investigate conditions of the Alma Mater Society..
The Business Manager is a paid representative of the Students' Council,
carrying out the wishes of Council in
ali activities in regard to finance. The
executives of clubs and societies are
expected to give him their full cooperation.
The Curator Is the keeper of all the
athletic equipment of the Alma Mater
Society. He is in his office at certain
hours as posted and all equipment must
be obtained from him and returned to
him at the end of the season. He is the
only officer who can issue requisitions
for equipment and supplies.
NOTE.—No bills will be honored by
the Students' Council unless they are
covered by a requisition from the Curator. The business houses of the city
have been informed of this ruling and
it will be rigidly observed by  Council.
The Honor System
"The Alma Mater Society depends
upon the honor of the individual student
for the maintenance of discipline and
order on  the campus."
Members of the Alma Mater Society
shail at all times endeavor to uphold the
honor and good name of the student
body and the University as a whole.
They shall cooperate with the Student
and University authorities in the maintenance of order and the protection of
buildings, grounds and properties, within
the University precincts. This is to
include fire regulations prohibiting
smoking in the halis of the University
Kla-How-Yah I
In the Chinook jargon, "Kla-how-yah"
is the single word of welcome and is,
therefore, equivalent to any friendiy
greeting in English. "Kla-how-yah" was
adopted at the University to become the
traditional salutation among its students;
but, although the word and its purpose
nave been recognized and accepted by
students, the greeting has never been
employed generally. It was, however, incorporated two years ago into one of
our yells, and efforts were made at the
same time to make the use of the word
popular among undergraduates. "Kla-
how-yah" is too rich in association with
the early history of our province, too
appropriately ours, in a word, too British Columbian, to be iost to us. Greet
feliow-students with "Kia-how-yah;" it
takes the place of an  introduction. Valedictory Gifts
The practice of presenting to the University a valedictory gift from the
graduating class was instituted by the
Class of 1919. Their gift was the
"Arts '19 Scholarship," of the value of
$150, awarded annually until the session
1926-1927, when the final award was
Other valedictory gifts were as follows:
1920—Relay Cup.
1921—Portrait of Dr.  Wesbrook.
1922—$300.00, to be used for some University purpose later to be determined.
1923—Art  collection.
1924—$443.96, for the purpose of providing an addition to the Art Collection begun by Arts '23.
1926—Trophy Case.
1927—Medical Equipment in Health Department Office.
1928—Wesbrook Memorial Seat (in front
of the Library).

Speak    thou    their    high    faith    in    our

Forbid us to forget.
Alma Mater,  watcher of  the hours,
Thou   lookest   on   the   mountains   and

And rulest in the might of other powers
In loftier majesty.

Yet   naught   that   time   shall   bring   can

Thy memory or thy praise.

And  there my dear love sits him down,

And drinks his wine 'mid laughter free,
And never, never thinks of me.
Fare  thee  well,   for  I  must  leave   thee,
Do not  let  the parting grieve  thee.
And remember that the best of friends

Adieu,  adieu  kind  friends;  adieu, adieu,

And  may  the world  go  well  with  thee.

I  thought I  heard a  chicken  sneeze.
He sneezed so hard with the whooping-
He sneezed his head and tail right off.

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 upliili.
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.
I'm  tired of living alone,
1 want a wee sheik of my own,
Balloons   and   jazz   sweater,
The louder the better,
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;
The  people   in  front  get   the  jar—some

My   girl's   a   hullabaloo.
She wears the Gold and Blue;
She goes to Varsity  too
Just like the others do.
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 teasing, etc.
As we grow older
She will grow bolder,
And  she  will  hold  her
Head on my shoulder,  etc.
