The TILLICUM
TO THE FROSH:
The Tillicum has been published especially to
help you who are entering the University of
British Columbia for the first time. Carry it with
you and consult it whenever you are in doubt;
everything you want to know about the
University is somewhere between its covers.
Become familiar with the regulations set forth
in the Tillicum. They are for your benefit and
protection.
Through this little handbook the University and
the Alma Mater Society are extending a cordial
greeting to you.  Welcome to UBC, Frosh.
BRUCE BEWELL,
Editor. UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
The TILLICUM
DR. NORMAN A. MacKENZIE
PRESIDENT OF U. B.  C.
The committee in charge of the preparation of
"Tillicum" have asked me to write a short
message of welcome for it and for the incoming
Freshmen and  Freshettes.
Because I too am, in a very real sense, a
freshman I find it rather difficult to do this. But
I do consider it an honour to have been asfced
to serve as President of the University of British
Columbia and I am sure that we will have an
interesting and stimulating life together during
the years that we are here,—you as students,
I as President. In any event I want you to know
that, as far as I am concerned, I will do everything
that I can to ensure that you enjoy your time
at U.B.C. and that you get the maximum benefit
from it. I know too that I speak not only for
Mrs. MacKenzie and myself but for every member
of the faculty and for everyone connected with
the University when I welcome you to U.B.C,
and promise you the most interesting and
satisfactory years of your life.

may have or any question you want answered.
Feel free to call on them.

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 Athletic
Associations 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 submit a budget
to Council early in the fall term. Budgets are then
The TILLICUM
11
allotted by Council which may make additional
special grants at its own discretion.
Each club has its own executive elected by its
members.
Two regular meetings of the Alma Mater Society
arc 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" office.
COUNCIL PRESIDENT
At the head of student affairs in 1944-45 will be
the forceful-speaking Dick Bibbs. As president
of A.M.S. Dick will preside at all meetings of the
Society and Students' Council, act as member
ex-officio of all committees of the Society, and
bend a receptive ear to any suggestions for the
improvement of student activities.
Serving his second term on Council (last year
he was Junior Member), Dick is well fitted to
the office. Entering the fifth year in Chemical
Engineering, he possesses a true engineer's keen
analytical mind, love of efficiency, and contempt
o- "red tape". He has always been active in
campus activities, the Engineers' Undergraduate
Society, the Parliamentary Forum, and the Players
Club being his main interests. Coupled with all
this organising ability is a ready wit, which
promises to make Dick one of the most colorful
and efficient of A.M.S. presidents.
Dick will be a busy man this year, but do not
hesitate to approach him if you feel you have
a worthwhile opinion. He will be glad to hear
from you. 12

PUBLICATIONS BOARD
Editor-in-chief of Publications for 1944-45 is
serious, efficient John Scott. A true (journalist
who is said to have printer's ink for blood, Scott
will crusade vigorously for the principles which
he considers to be just and right. His dynamic
editorials are widely read.
Widely experienced in the newspaper business,
he is well fitted to carry out his progressive plans
which will make the coming year memorable in
the history of the Ubyssey.
'■£>.
Four publications come out of the "Pub" each
year. They are The Ubyssey, The Tillicum, The
Directory, and The Totem.
The Ubyssey is the student newspaper, published
Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, which is
distributed to the students in all important
buildings on the campus. The cost is covered by
the Alma Mater Society fee. The Ubyssey began
publication in 1916 as a monthly and has been
published as a bi-weekly for the last fourteen
years. This year it was decided to go to press
three times \veekly in order to give fuller
coverage of campus news.
Managed entirely by students who define its
policies, the Ubyssey is devoted to presenting
campus news correctly and impartially, and also
publishing bona fide expressions of student opin- 22
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
ion. A member of the Canadian University Press
(CUP) and British United Press (BUP), the
Ubyssey features exchange news from Canadian
and American Colleges and wire news from all
over the world from BUP teletypes.
New students are welcomed to the Pub with
open arms, and are invited to try for staff positions.
The Tillicum is that little volume that you are
wading through at present. It is the student
handbook, written for every student, but designed
especially for the Freshmen and Freshettes.
The Directory contains the address and phone
number of every student registered at U.B.C.
Originally designed to help out-of-town students
contact each other, it is now used chiefly by
the men of the campus to track down glamour
girls. Pocket-size, this little book is indispensible.
The Totem is the leatherbound yearbook of
U.D.C. For the past two years publication has
been suspended to conserve essential materials,
but this year improved supply situations will make
it possible to once again produce our famous
two-time All-American winning annual.
The Pub office is in the north basement of the
Brock. Drop in sometime, a hearty welcome
awaits you.

The TILLICUM
HISTORICAL SKETCH
In 1890 the Provincial Legislature passed an Act
establishing a body politic and corporate named
the University of British Columbia. No 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 bacame
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 Lsarning
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, when he introduced a "University
Endowment Act." This Act was followed in 1908
The TILLICUM
41
by 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 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
seme 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 lease or sale.
The first Convocation, held on August 1, 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. Westbrook. M.A.. M.D.. CM.,
LLD. On April 4, 1918, the late Dr. R. E.
McKechnie was elected chancellor.
On the death of President Westbrook October
20, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean of the faculty of
Agriculture, was appointed acting president, and
on June 1, 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 the1 General Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work on the Science building began
at the Point Grey site in 1914, but was interrupted
because of the war. Work on this building was
not finished until the great student campaign of
1922.
Students paraded through the streets of town in
the midst of a province-wide drive complete with 42
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
posters, loud speakers, and mass meetings aimed
to bring to light the crowded conditions then
stifling the University at its Fairview "Shacks."
The climax of the campaign came when a large
body of students marched to the Point Grey site
and perched on the steel skeleton of the unfinished
Science building.
As a direct result of this drive, work was again
started on the University, and the Science
building, the Library and nine other, buildings
were completed and ready for occupancy in the
fall of 1925.
The inauguration of the new buildings was held
on October 15 and 16, 1925, on which occasion
honorary degrees were granted by the University
for the first time.
Since that time the Gymnasium, Stadium and
Brock Memorial Hall have been added to the
University, mainly through the efforts and
enterprise of the student body.
On July 31, 1944. Dr. L. S. Klinck retired as
president of the University and was succeeded by
Dr. Norman MacKenzie, then president of the
University  of New Brunswick.
CAIRN CEREMONY
The Cairn Service for freshmen, inaugurated in
The TILLIC 'M
1928, has become a tradition, at the University.
The Cairn was first set up as a memorial of the
province-wide campaign in 1922, when a group of
enthusiastic students marched from Fairview to
Point Grey in an endeavour to have the university
site moved from the Fairview shacks. The Cairn
itself is situated in front of the Science building
on the Mall and is constructed of rocks gathered
on the grounds. Inside is contained a manuscript
with the signatures of those who participated in
the march.
Each year the freshman class gather at the Cairn
to pay tribute to the students who were responsible
for the campaign's success.
BOOK EXCHANGE

.EXCHANGE SYSTEM
The National/Federation of Canadian University
Students has arranged a scheme whereby a
Canadian University Student, without extra charge
to himself, may obtain a year's study at a
university in another part of Canada.
A  selection  committee  composed   of  a  faculty UNIVERSITY OF  B.C
member and two students shall nominate, on
application, any number of students not exceeding
one per cent of the enrollment. The student must
have completed at least two years study, with at
least Second Class standing in the second year, be
an undergraduate below the final year, and be
representative in a general way of the stndent
body.
Through the co-operation of various university
authorities it is provided that exchange students
are exempt from tuition fees which except in
extreme cases is sufficient compensation for the
railway fee involved in effecting the exchange.
The President of the Students' Council is the
representative of the\ N.F.C.U.S. and can give full
information respecting the Exchange System.

The bureau endeavours to provide students with
summer employment and part time work during
the winter session as well as to help students
obtain  employment after graduation.
Co-operating with the National Selective Service
the bureau takes care of all student employment
and effects a considerable saving of time and
energy. An increasing amount of business has
been handled lately by the bureau due to wartime conditions and students are advised to
register early. The Employment Bureau has grown
by leaps and bounds to become one of the busiest
offices on the campus.
Those who know of vacant positions are
requested to notify the bureau. All correspondence
should be addressed to "Employment Bureau,
Registrar's Office."
UNIVERSITY HEALTH SERVICE
The University Health Service, located in 306
Auditorium Building, exists to prevent communicable diseases, to render first aid in cases of
accidents  and   sudden   sickness,   and  to   furnish 50
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
advice about health matters to the general student
body.
All students entering the University for the first
time must report immediately to the Health
Service, making an appointment for examination.
Students neglecting so to do will be disciplined by
the University Health Committee.
Discovery of Infectious Persons:
All cases of illness, including a common cold,
developed during the academic year, must be
reported to the Health Office at once; if on the
campus, personally, otherwise by phone. After an
illness, students must report to the Health Office
for inspection before re-admission to the
University.
Disposal of Infectious Persons:
All persons reasonably suspected of infectiveness
are excluded from contact with others until shown
to be non-infective or, if shown to be infective,
until th0 actual termination of such infectiveness.
All University contacts of infectives are to report
to the Health Office for determination of
susceptibility, and are to be excluded while there
is a possibility of developing the infection.
In order to minimize loss of attendance, contacts
may* arrange daily inspection at the Health Office
during the period of potential infectiveness.
Failure to report will result in immediate expulsion
from the University.
Students are advised to avoid large gatherings
and late hours during an epidemic, such as the
"flu" epidemic of last year, since the number of
cases increased significantly after well-attended
dances.
STUDENT ACCIDENT INSURANCE
During the session 1944-45. members of the Alma
The TILLICUM

Mater Society who have registered as regular
students in any of the long courses and who have
paid the regular student fee will be protected by
Accident Insurance. This coverage will insure
against expenses due to accidental injuries
sustained by members of the Alma Mater Society
while engaged in supervised activities sponsored
by the Society or by the University. Such
activities will include academic pursuits, athletics,
club activities, Women's War Work and social
functions.
REQUISITION SYSTEM
No club bills will be honoured by the Students'
Council unless they are covered by a purchass
order from the club business secretary to the Alma
Mater Society. The business houses of this city
have been informed of this ruling and it will be
rigidly observed by Council. All club pins,
sweaters, etc., must) be approved by the Students'
Council before they are ordered.
WAR AID COUNCIL
A comparatively new organization on the campus
is the War Aid Council, composed of prominent
students and dedicated to tha task of directing a
centralized university war effort. Called together
only two years ago, the War Aid Council has
proved invaluable in boosting UBC's war drives
and co-ordinating all war effort activities.
Numerous money-making functions have been
successful through the planning of this Council,
one of the most notable being the Ambulance
Drive held two years ago to purchase an ambulance
for the Red Cross. UBC's war effort has been
speeded up and University Red Cross iunds greatly
increased by the efforts of the War Aid Council. 52

Social
Calendar
Freshette Supper—During the initiation period,
freshettes are entertained at a supper. This
function generally takes the form of a children's
party to which the freshettes are escorted by their
"big sisters."
Frosh Smoker—An evening with pipes, tobacco,
cider and masculine entertainment possibly
welcomes the Freshmen during the initiation
period.
These stag sessions of late years have usually
developed into highly messy affairs and it was
only through the determined efforts of Freshman
leaders that a Frosh smoker was held last year.
As the premises used last year is still standing,
hope is held out for a coming Frosh smoker.
Frosh Reception—A dance is given about the
end of the first week in the fall term in honor of
the incoming students. The freshmen are expected
to mingle with members of the upper classes.
Introductions are not necessary. One ticket only
is allowed each undergraduate. During the evening
the freshmen are formally received as members
of the student body and until this ceremony the
green insignia must be worn.
Home-Coming—The Annual Home-coming weekend is celebrated in the last full week of October.
It is intended to bring the Alumni in closer contact
with the students and includes various entertainments) in honour of the graduates.

Early in March the cluib also presents a Spring
Play which is open to the public, and for which
admission is charged.
Hi-Jinx—On the second Thursday in January,
Women's Undergraduate Society arranges a fancy
dress party for women students only. A small
admission fee is charged. Although it was
announced that any male student attending this
dance in disguise does so at risk of his personal
safety, one brave Ubyssey reported covered the
affair one year to get a "scoop" which appeared in
almost every University paper in Canada. Except
for slight damage to his wearing apparel, he came
out unscathed.
Clasp Parties—Each class of each faculty is
allowed to hold one class party during the year.
Only members of the class holding the. dance are
admitted.   Class fees pay for these dances.
Undergraduate Balls—Each faculty is allowed to
give one general dance during the year. Of late
the supply of tickets for these balls has been
limited.

FRATERNITIES
Fraternities and sororities are groups of students
with common ideals and a liking for one another,
organized into societies of from fifteen to fifty
members. "Rushing," the system whereby these
organizations contact prospective members, is
carried  on  according  to  rules agreed to  by  all
The TILLICUM
55
fraternities. It consists of members contacting
"rushees" through social affairs in order to become
acquainted with them. At the end of the rushing
season if the fraternity decides it wants the person
one of its membsrs 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.
INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL
Representatives from each of the twelve campus
fraternities form the Inter-Fraternity Council. The
I.F.C. outlines the general policies to be followed
by all local fraternities. During the 1942-43 session
an important amendment was made to the
constitution which permitted the rushing of senior
matric men in their first year in the University.
In addition to the fall rushing, the fraternities
follow an extensive sports program and participate
in the annual inter-fraternity song fest. The TILLICUM

UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
SORORITIES
The Panhellenic Constitution revised in 1938-39
presents a democratic system by which sophomore
women apply for membership and the sorority
may contact their posible members only through
campus activities. This was the first time that
sororities have so disregarded the tradition of
almost a century and abolished rushing. The plan
was passed by seven out of the eight women's
Greek letter societies. The new system has
numerous advantages, the most important of
which are financial.
The President of Panhellenic will speak at the
first meeting of the Women's Undergraduate
Society and a circular of general information
regarding the nature and function of the sororities
will be sent to each freshette in January.
A $1 fee will be charged to ensure that all those
girls applying are sufficiently interested to accept
a bid should they receive one.
PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL
Central governing body of the eight Greek
sororities on the campus is the Pan-Hellenic
Council, with membership consisting of two
representatives from each sorority. The Council
correlates the work of the sororities and watches
over their activities.
Each year the Council gives all-out aid to all
worthy causes on the campus, last year collaborating with the Inter-Fraternity Council to promote
the Red Cross Ball.
Other activities include fall and spring rushing,
supplying 'Big Sisters' for freshettes. a bowling
league and the annual inter-fraternity song fest.

PHRATERES
Entering on its tenth year at UBC Phrateres is
the largest women's club on the campus.
Membership is open to any sorority or non-sorority
girl who is in sympathy with the ideals of the
society  as  expressed  in  the motto  "Famous for 58
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
Friendliness."
The large organization, all-Phrateres, is divided
into sub-chapters which meet twice each month
for social purposes and to discuss business.
Activities include the annual banquet and
initiation dance and several smaller parties.
Philanthropic work includes hampers for the
underprivileged at Christmas and throughout the
term.
Phrateres is an ideal opportunity for freshettes
to become acquainted with a large number of
students on the campus and to take an active part
in campus activities.
UNIVERSITY STUDENTS CO-OPERATIVE
ASSOCIATION
The University Students Co-Operative Association offers residence with a homey atmosphere to
out-of-town students. An executive, elected from
the members, manages the general business.
Members share the housework, each doing one
chore which does not take more than one half-
hour daily. Excellent dinners are served by a
housemother. The cost of board and laundry
should not exceed twenty-seven dollars par month.
Members adopt suitable rules regarding
disturbances during study hours. Assistance,
whenever needed, can readily be obtained from
other students.
Students wishing to enter the Co-op should
apply to the Secretary and must, when applying,
purchase ten shares at one dollar each. These
are returned when the member leaves.

STUDENT BUILDINGS
One of the most unusual and noteworthy facts
about our campus is the number of buildings that
have been conceived, planned, and financed by
students themselves. Students have acted on their
own initiative rather than wait for assistance. In
this manner the Gymnasium, the Brock Hall and
the Stadium were built and various other projects
carried out, such as landscaping the stadium,
erecting a cairn to commemorate the campaign for
a new site. One of the most striking of these
student achievements is the modern Brock Hall.
BROCK MEMORIAL BUILDING
The Brock Hall stands today as a fitting
memorial to the lives and work of the late Dean
of Applied Science and his wife, killed in a tragic
airplane crash in the summer of 1935.
This couple was held in such high esteem by
students of theii) day that it was decided to erect
a student Union Building to permanently commemorate the Dean and his wife. The dream
of those students was realized on January 31, 1940,
when Lieut. Governor E. W. Hamber officially
opened the Brock Hall, third structure on the
campus to be built from student funds.
The first important campaign for money,
launched in the spring of 1936 by AMS president
Bernard Brynelsen with an objective of $30,000,
closed at the end of the session with less than
$7,000 contributed. The next two years saw
student campaigners Presidents Jay Gould and
David Carey turn their efforts from the Union
Building to the Stadium, a modern concrete
building, in October, 1937.
In 1938 the dormant Brock Hall issue received 60
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
a new lease on life and the campaign began in
earnest. With the promise of $20,500 in ten annual
installments from the Government of British Columbia and the sum of $30,000 already collected
and in the hands of the Brock Memorial Trustees,
the AMS in March 1939, decided to borrow another
$80,000. The total of these sums, plus a $10,000
donation from the Women's Undergraduate Society, served to retire the outstanding Stadium
bends and finance the Brock Hall.
Throughout the summer of 1939 Past President
Carson McQuire and President-elect John Pearson
perfected plans which were approved by the
Erock Memorial Committee. Construction" work
began shortly before the fall term and was finished by the end of January. The workers then
moved outside and transformed the surrounding
grounds into lawns and gardens comparable in
beauty to the rest of our campus.
The first section of the cultural and social center
dedicated to the memories of Dean and Mrs. Brock,
built at a cost of $75,000, was finished. It is but
a part of the intended final. Union Building is
constructed in such a way as to allow enlargemtnt.
ROOMS IN BROCK HALL
In the center of the building is the main lounge,
open at all times to students. On the East side of
the lounge is the Men's Smoking Room.
On the main floor on the northern side is the
Faculty Room, for Faculty members only. Beside
it is the Mildred Brock Room.
On the southern side of the building are the
offices of the Alma Mater Society, the headquar-
The TILLICUM

ters of the Students' Council and the Employment
Bureau. Here, in addition to the general office,
are the offices of the President of AMS and the
Treasurer of Council. There is a public telephone
in the corridor, and a Men's Executive Room in
the southeast corner, headquarters of the University Alumni Association; the Alumni representative is at present in the AMS office.
Upstairs on the southern side is the Double
Committee room capable of seating 200 people.
Clubs may obtain permission to use the meeting
rooms by applying at the AMS office.
The Students' Council meeting room is upstairs
on the south side. The stage room on the north
side is for the use of the Players' Club and the
Musical Society when they prepare their productions. Beside the Rehearsal room is the Phrateres
club room.
In the north basement of the Brock are the
offices of the Book Exchange, and the Publication
Board, the latter commonly known as the Pub.
Here is also a women's cloakroom and washroom.
In the southern basement are the men's washroom and cloakroom, the Mamook club room and
the photography room.
UBC STADIUM
A long needed addition to the University is the
Stadium, on the playing field, built during the
summer of 1937. The main section is of reinforced
concrete with a seating capacity of 1,600 persons.
It is completely up-to-date, containing showers,
chafing rooms, hand ball courts and offices. The
building was constructed with the idea of being
central unit of a modern stadium. Two wooden
bleachers each seat 500. The total, costing $40000,
was financed by a bond issue. UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
POINTS OF INTEREST
The Canadian Jubilee Memorial Windows are
situated at the western 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,
then Premier of British Columbia.
Outside the AMS office in the Brock Memorial
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 oblong face and engravings
of the Cairn and the Lions, is a familiar object to
all visitors to the Botanical Gardens. Ic 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 representative Polynesian collection of
curio relics in the world. It was collected by
Dr. Frank Burnett, who during a period of 35
years, sailed around the cannibal is'ands in th::
South Pacific
The University Stamp Collection comprises the
postage stamps of Canada and the early British
North American colonies. It contains many stamps
dating from the time of Queen 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 were
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
presented by the friends of Inazo N.itobe to the
University. On August 29, 1935, the 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 Tsem-Lano, 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.
Through the efforts of Mr. John Ridington, former University Librarian, an extensive art collection composed of 185 volumes, 200 reproductions
and 40 large pictures especially framed, was
donated to the University by the Carnegie
Corporation in New York. This collection has
been installed in the Art Room of the Library.
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.
In the spring of 1938. the University received
an unique gift in the form of a valuable collection
of animal heads, now mounted in Room 100,
Applied Science Building.  The heads are, exceed- 64
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
ingly fine specimens of big game to be found in
the wilds of B.C., and were collected by a local
man, Mr. G. L. Pop, world-famed big game hunter.
On the lower floor of the Library there is a
large show case containing a number of challenge
cups and plaques — thirty-three cups and three
plaques. Some of the biggest and shiniest are:

WOMEN'S WAR WORK
With each successive year of the war, the
women students of UBC have striven to accomplish more for the war effort. The war work plan
which was suggested by the women of '42 has
been operating for the .past two years. The women
again supported it when they voted unanimously
for its continaution this year. Under this plan,
co-eds spend two hours weekly in activities
chosen from two major groups, War Work A and
War Work B.
Under War Work A. one hour of PJ5. is required
of each undergraduate woman. Under War Work
B, one hour is spent working in the Red Cross
room or taking such courses as First Aid or Home
Nursing. The other courses which are open only
to students of second, third, and fourth years are
Day Nursery, Typing, Wartime Foods, and Wartime! Clothing. Membership in all courses will be
restricted. A small group of girls will operate a
canteen, the, proceeds going to the Red! Cross.
The Canadian Red Cross Corps, which was so
successful last year, will continue its fine work
this year, operating in conjunction with the other
war work courses.
Definite announcements regarding war work
will be made early in the term.

SOCIAL CALENDAR
By Barbara Greene
Fresident of WUS
Freshette Supper: WUS gets off to a good start
during the first week when each Little Sister is
escorted by Big Sister to a children's party. Here
under the control of the Wustapo, any naughty
little Freshettes who have broken initiation rules
will atone for their misdoings. So beware, the
Wustapo will get you if you don't watch out!
Frosh Reception: At the close of initiation week,
Big Sisters go man hunting for Little Sister's
escort to the Frosh Reception in Brock Hall. Here
the Frosh get to know each other and are
officially welcomed to UBC.
Fashion Show: Early in November the beauties of
the campus are chosen to model in the WUS
fashion show. This is really a "smooth" affair as
it is exclusively a UBC show.  Don't miss it.
Hi-Jinx: November becomes even busier when
the girls don their weirdest costumes for a party
at the gym—and what a party! A battle is raged
between the years in races, Skit competition and
other contests to work up an appetite for the
ieast to follow.
N. B.  No men allowed.
Splash Party: WUS supports WAA when the girls
. get together for their annual Swim Frolic.   Here
will be races, stunts,  diving and free swimming
for all girls.
Co-Ed Ball: Sadie Hawkins Day is celebrated in
February when all wise women bring their
heaviest date to the WUS Co-ed. Remember that
cabbage corsage—it will serve a dual purpose,
because you are footing the bill. The TILLICUM

ATHLETICS
Athletics
University athletics exist to prevent the
unhealthy condition resulting from the indoor
work of the student. The object is to train young
and inexperienced athletes. Competent physical
instructors are in charge of an extensive program
of physical education and all students are urged
to attend the classes provided.
There is an opportunity for everyone to take
part in whatever sport he desires, as teams of all
calibres are organized. Places on teams are filled,
without favoritism or prejudice, with the best men.
Those not capable of active physical participation may obtain positions managing these teams.
New managers are needed and welcomed.
No student is allowed during the session to take
part in athletic competition or games for any team
or organization other than a University team
without the consent, in writing, of the Men's or
Women's Athletic Association, approved by resolution of the Students' Council. Any student so
doing in violation of this regulation will automatically forfeit all claim to an athletic award
in any sport.
Freshmen are allowed to play on any team on
which they can win a place, and freshman classes
in the past have had men on first teams in every
sport.  Watch the notice boards, and turn out!
Physical Directors:
Maurice Van Vliet, M.Sc.—Instructor of Physical
Education, Men.
Miss    Gertrude    Moore—Instructor    of    Physical
Education, Women. 72
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
Under the supervision of Mr. Van Vliet and Miss
Moore, this department has developed into one
of the largest in the University. Organized gym
classes, tumbling, wrestling, badminton, archery,
table-tennis, and other physical activities are all
part of an attempt to promote health and physical
well-being on the campus. These instructors have
guided students in the development of an extensive intra - mural program. This department
appeals to the large body of students who ordinarily take no part in any form of athletics. It is
to be hoped that with growth of student interest
in health and physical education this department
will soon be able to offer courses in theory and
practice. The instructors' offices are located in the
Gymnasium Building where students may obtain
schedules of classes.
Intra-Mural Program
Under the guidance of Mr. Van Vliet and Miss
Moore in co-operation with the Alma Mater
Society, the University has developed an extensive
Intra-Mural program embracing most sports. This
provides for inter-class, inter-fraternity, and
group competitions. Each year more and more
students have taken part in this program. Be sure
to watch for notices in regard to intra-mural sports
and turn out.
Last year intra-mural sports were developed
more than ever before, to take the place of out-
The TILLICUM
73
side competition which had ta be curtailed because
of the military training program.
UNIVERSITY SPORTS
Despite the fact that the demand on students'
time has resulted in the curtailment of sports
activities on the campus, a full athletic program
is planned this year. The major sports have
temporarily discontinued playing in outside competition, but instead have encouraged competition
from close at hand teams. All major sports followed the pattern of arranging home games and a
successful, active season was the result.
It is expected that with/ even less time to work
with competition can be arranged so that the
upswing in organized war session sports can be
continued and the basis laid for a return to the
high standards enjoyed in former years.
BASKETBALL
This is now the major
sport on the campus,, both
men and women entering
teams in league play,
"fjho - you -'Wba" says
"C'm-on, kids, get out and
try for a place on one of
the five squads.' 74
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
Men's Senior A: If you can grab a spot on this
squad you may have a chance to play in the
Dominion finals next spring. With the chance
that several outstanding freshmen from, last year
may return, together with the veterans and you
new recruits it looks as if UBC may again win
the provincial championship.
Men's Intermediate A (Frosh): This is the gang
made up entirely of freshmen. They enter the V
and D league and see plenty of action. Another
team in the same class is Varsity, playing in the
same league as the frosh.
Women's Senior B: These gals play in the city
Cagette League and form the major team amongst
the girls.
The Ski Club has its headquarters at Schuss Inn,
in the Grouse Mountain Ski Village. An attempt
is being made to organize skiing as a major sport
this year, so all skiers are requested to support
the club. There is no limit to the number of
members, but as accommodation is limited, all
persons wishing to use the cabin must put in three
work hikes.
The Outdoor Club also has its cabin on Grouse
Mountain. As well as skiing in the winter this
club plans extensive hikes and mountain climbing
expeditions during the spring and summer.
Soccer is a major sport this year, with U.B.C.
entering teams in the V. and D. League. All
games will be played on Saturday afternoon.
Several assistant managers are needed. Freshmen are preferred.
English Rugby holds a prominent spot in UBC
athletics. A team is entered in the Miller Cup
race held  before  Christmas,  and  the McKechnie
The TILLICUM
75
Cup and Tisdall Cup play during the season.
The Grass Hockey Club is affiliated with the
Lower Mainland Ladies' League. Games are
played with ex-high teams in the city and a
Varsity rep. team meets a high school rep. team
annually. All women interested, especially
freshettes, are asked to watch for notices of
organization.
This year's Badminton Club should be better
than ever due to the fine standing both mixed
teams made in the Leagues of the V and D
Badminton Association. Open to both men and
v/omen, the club sets a fee of $4 per term.
Popular with the women, Archery had one of its
most   successful    seasons   last   year    since    first 76
UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
introduced on the campus.   As many as 200 girls
turn out regulary to punish' the bull's-eye.
During the first term the Track Club holds a
meet against the Frosh, promotes an annual track
meet and the very popular cross country race in
which over one hundred men take part.
The Rowing Club uses the premises of the
Vancouver Rowing club. A fa'l regatta is held
with local high schools for the purpose of
arranging crews and in the spring an intercollegiate regatta is held and a trip to southern
colleges arranged. A bi-weekly schedule is
maintained  for  practices.
Open to both men and women, the Golf Club
has its headquarters at the University Golf
Course. A handicap tournament is heid during
the fall term and the University Championship
tournament in the spring. Fifty-cent membership
cards enable a student to obtain a cheaper rata
on the course.

April 10,1935
The Senate of the University of British
Columbia, under the powers conferred by the
British Columbia University Act and amending
Acts, enacts as follows:—
WHEREAS students of one year's standing
in the University have been wont heretofore to
initiate new students by the practice commonly
called "hazing," at times injurious, and
students generally have indulged in inter-
faculty clashes and other activities which had
a tendency to cause injury to property and
persons:
AND WHEREAS it is desirable to prohibit
all such practices and to preserve order and
good government within the authority of the
University and the precincts of the Campus;
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED AND ENACTED
as follows:—
1. All forms of initiation or clash of students
which in any way are or tend to become
injurious to any person or property, committed
by any student anywhere or by any person
upon the property under the control of the
University, are hereby absolutely prohibited. Songs and

HAIL, U.B.C.
(Verse)
We wear the blue and 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 HYMN
Alma Mater, by thy dwelling
There is set the western sea,
Mountains shed thein benediction
On the hopesi that rest in thee.
Alma Mater, to thy children
In the spring-time of their years,
Grant the faith that grows from knowledge,
Courage that makes light of fears.
Alma Mater, thou hast kinship
With the great of by-gone days.
And the voices of our fathers
Join with ours to sing thy praise.
Words,—Prof.   H.   T.   Coleman

ENGLISH RUGBY TEAM'S SONG
Hail!  Hail!  the gang's all here,
What the hell do we care,
What the hell do we ... .
We are the Rugby Club,   stand all in line,
We're going to win our game another time,
We're going to yell, yell, yell, yell, like hell.
For the University we'll yell like hell,
We're going to fight, fight, fight for every yard,
We'll beat Victoria Rep so very hard
That there'll be fifteen corpses on the sod,
With a Rah!   Rah!   Rah!

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 hell 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.
She goes to all the shows,
Wears all the latest clothes,
Powders her little nose.
What for, nobody knows.
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. 132

MR, NOAH
O Mr. Noah! O Mr. Noah!
May we please come into the ark of the Lord?
For it's getting very dark and it'll rain very hard.
(Chorus)
Hallelu-HaUelu-Hallelu-lu-lu-yuh.
No you can't sirs, No you can't sirs,
No you can't come into the ark of the Lord,
Though it's sprinkling now and it'll rain very hard.
Go to Hell sir, Go to Hell sir,
Go to Hell with your damned old leaky scow
For it ain't going to rain very hard anyhow.
That's a lie sirs, that's a lie sirs,
O it's all very well, but   ain't no sell
And you'll damn soon tell it's gonna rain like Hell.

Ain't what they usedj to be, ain't what they used

CASEY JONES
(Engineers' Song)
Come all you freshmen if you want to hear
The story about a brave engineer;
He started in to college in the fall of thirty-three,
Why he took up engineering is a mystery to me.
(Chorus)
Casey Jones couldn't hold his liquor,
Casey Jones couldn't hold his beer,
Casey Jones never got thru college
He never got thru college 'cause he couldn't hold
his beer.
Casey Jones was the engineers' pride.
In football or hockey he always saved his side.
He was a- wiz in classwork, his reports were always;
clear,
But he never got his parchment 'cause he couldn't
hold his beer.
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 youths do, ne'er became
an engineer,
And the reason for his failure was, he couldn't
hold his beer.
(Continued on Next Page)
The TILLICUM

The Grads 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
clear:
'Never come to college if you cannot hold your
beer.' "
NOTE—There are several other popular songs on
the campus (especially among the Engineers)
which space does not permit us to print. 136
