Kla-how-yuh, Frosh. Through the Tillicum, the
University and the Alma Mater Society extend a
cordial greeting to you.  Welcome to UBC.
Now, in your first mystifying days at Varsity,
you will find the Tillicum an invaluable aid in
dispelling some of the doubts and fears. Every
important fact you w'll need to know concerning
your University is somewhere between its covers.
Learn this information well; it will be a great help
to you in your new college life.
Here at the doorstep of this life is your
opportunity to stop and check up. Studies, clubs,
sports—they all lie ahead of you. Decide what you
want from University life and go after it. Campus
activities can make life pretty swell and a little
oi' the old rah-rah college spirit is a wonderful
thing, but remember—you came here primarily
for an education.
Ctrike a happy medium and stay with it. Don't
forget you are now officially a student of the
University of British Columbia. From here on—
Tuum Est.
Good Luck, Frosh.
President ol  I ■   I- ( •
This year, for the first time since September
1939, students registering at the University do so
in the expectation that they inay plan for a normal
peacetime future. Many of the young men and
women who have been on active service will be
back with us again. Our enrollment will be the
largest in the history of the University and will
tax our resources to the utmost. All this suggests
that the year 1945-46 will be an interesting and
exciting one for all of us.
To those who come for the first time, I bid you
welcome. I hope you will profit by reason of the
time you spend here. I know you will enjoy it
for it can be the happiest period of your lives.
To those who return from Service, may I just
say that we are grateful to you, we feel honoured
by your presence among us and we will do all that
can to meet your needs and wishes. In return,
we hope that you will find here the training and
opportunities that you are best suited to pursue.
To every one, I wish a happy, enjoyable and
satisfactory year.

Cophomore Member   To be elected
Co-ordinator of Social Activities  To be elected
The students' council is the governing body of
the Alma Mater Society. Until this year nine
members, commonly known as the 'Dirty Nine'
had the jurisdiction over all matters pertaining to
students affairs.
It was felt however, that with the increasing
growth of the University the size of the students'
council should also increase with its increasing
responsibilities. Therefore last year a Students'
Council Revision Committee was set up, which,
after making inquiries to many other universities
regarding their student government, set to the task
of revising the antiquated system under which
previous councils had slaved.
After a great deal of work and discussion, the
committee presented the Students' Council plan
which will be first put into practise this session.
Besides a much more cut and dried segregation
of responsibilities among Council members, the
revision also calls for two new members on
These members are, namely, 'Co-ordinator of
Social Activities' and 'Sophomore Member'. This
year only these members will be elected in the
second and third week of the fall term. Henceforth
they will be elected in the spring with the rest
of the members of Council.
Council meets every Monday night during the
term to discuss all motions for student welfare.
Each university club submits a budget to
Council early in the fall term. Budgets are then
allotted, by Council which may make additional
special grants at its own discretion.
Each club has its own executive elected by its
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
At these an account of student affairs is placed
before the student body and matters of special
importance are discussed from the floor to enablf
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.
As president of the Alma Mater Society for
1945-46, Allan Ainsworth gives promise of being
a most efficient and hard-working student leader.
Conscientious and serious, Allan possesses all the
attributes necessary to provide student affairs with
a smoothly running government. 12
Allan will preside at all meetings of the Alma
Mater Society and Council, act as member ex-
officio of all committees of the Society, and bend
a receptive ear to any suggestions for improvement
of student activities.
Allan has had previous experience with student
government, having served as Junior Member on
Council last year. He proved his ability in this
position, taking care of last year's Freshman class,
making a huge success of last year's Homecoming,
and keeping the water jug full at council meetings
in an amazingly efficient manner.
Always an outstanding student, Allan in his
fourth year, is taking an honours course in English
and Economics.
He has always taken an active part in campus
activities. In his first year he was a member of
the Frosh Debating Team. He joined the Players
Club and took the lead in two spring plays. He
is also a member of the Economics Club and the
Letters Club.
He is thus in touch with the student body as a
whole and in this way is able to understand and
solve campus problems.
Coupled witli this down-to-earth understanding
of student affairs is a highly idealistic mind. This
combination should make Allan an outstanding
president of the Alma Mater Society.
As newcomers, you Frosh will doubtless see
much room for improvement and correction in
student affairs which the upperclassmen have not
noticed, or to which they have grown indifferent.
If you feel you have a worthwhile idea, speak to
Allan. He will be glad to hear from you.
Keeper of the big black
minute-book of the students'
coun:il for this year is
Sydney Flavelle, who has
already earned a reputation
for being efficient and hard
She has chalked up several
important executive positions in her three years of
university life. She has
been secretary of Mamooks,
Vice-president of both second and third year Arts.
From Christmas on last
session,    she    was    acting
president of the rejuvenated Arts executive.
Having   thus   a   wide   practical   experience   in
executive work, she is certain to keep the Council's
business in order.
In her fourth year, she is majoring in Chemistry,
with a minor in Bacteriology.

Nancy Pitman, as president
of the University Women's
Association holds the rather
unique distinction of being
the first PUWA that this
University lias ever known.
PUWA Pitman, a combination of cheery personality,
irrcnressable whimsey and
down-to-earth plans, gives
■promise of making this or-
gnnizat'on, always extremely
active, even more busy than
  „., in the past.
She has had a great deal of executive experience,
both a- Initiation Chairman and Vice-President
of Phrateres. Her experience was further widened
by the position of Assistant Editor on the Ubyssey.
In addition to the campus Red Cross effort and
women's war work, PUWA undertakes to make
the freshettes feel at home during initiation week
by supplying them with 'Big Sisters'. UWA also
sponsors several social functions and drives
throughout the year.
Miss   Pitman    and    her    UWA    executive    are
responsible for the organization of these affairs.
In fourth  year, she  is majoring in Economics,
mmoring in Philosophy and English.

last year as president of the
now defunct MUS, he automatically took over the
reins of the Undergraduate

the constitution was ratified
this spring.
An out-of-towner, Hugh hails from Victoria,
where he was Valedictorian in his last year at
Victoria College. He is a member of the
Parliamentary Forum and served last year on the
executive. He is also an interested member of
the University Students Co-Operative Association.
In fourth year, he is Honouring in Philosophy, a
subject which should be of great use to him in
executing his duties as CUGC.
Serious, idealistic and hard-working, Hugh is
an excellent choice for this new position on
Council. His versatility and energy should more
than answer the challenge that this important
new position gives.

Common cry of the general public to newspaper
folk is 'but you must meet such interesting people'.
Our campus news hounds not only meet interesting people—they are interesting people. Any
member of the Publications Board will confirm
this statement.
Editor-in-chief of these interesting characters
for the 1945-46 session is Marion Dundas, the littlr
woman with the big editorial policy. Miss Dundas
joining the immortal ranks of the 'power mad
wielder of campus opinion' has given every indication in her three years of pub life, of being
an extra-ordinary wielder.
When a freshette, she gave early indication of
her outstanding ability by being declared champion
crumpet-eater at the Pub Tea, a title which she
still holds. The editors were impressed. Che was
quickly promoted to the dizzy heights of associate
From there it was a short journey via news
manager and senior editor, to her present position.
In the depths of old Brock Hall, an assorted
group of talented and interesting people, commonly
called 'pubsters' assist Mardee in the many and
varied duties of the Publications Board.
These pubsters gather there shortly after the
winter  session   begins,  and  dwell  until  the  end 2(1
of the year in the midst oi a melee of coke bottles,
copy paper and cub rei orters.
In this cloistered atmosphere they carry on the
variety of activities so dear to pubster hearts.
Chief among these activities are the publishing
of four student organs, the Ubyssey, the Tillicum,
the Directory and the Totem.
The Ubyssey, student newspaper, published first
in 1916 as a monthly has grown with the
University until now it is a tri-weekly paper.
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
opinion. 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 B'UP teletypes.
The Tillicum is the useful little volume which
you are no doubt avidly reading at this very
moment. As you might have guessed, it is the
student handbook, giving the more important
aspects of campus life. It is designated primarily
for the edification of the freshman class.
The Student Directory,.contains the address and
phone number of every student in the University.
As yet it has not been classified as to blondes and
brunettes. Pocket size, this indispensable culmination of the little black book is used for both
business and  pleasure.   Tuum Est.
The Totem is a 300 page mirror of a year of
University life. Among the popular games arising
from the publishing of this book is the race to
see who can get the most pictures printed. Needless
to say, pubsters always win.
Voluntarily suspended three years ago to
conserve essential materials, publication of the
Totem was again made possible last year by the
improved supply situation, the two-time All-
American winning annual will again be produced
this year.
The Totem staff consists of photographers,
writers, photographers, typists, and of course
Thus it may be seen that there is ample
opportunity to express a wide field of talents in
the Pub. Besides varied mediums of expression,
the Pub also offers free cokes, a congenial
atmosphere, pleasant evenings at Stanley Park
Pavilion and all the copy paper you can eat.
Sounds good, doesn't it! Drop around to the
north basement of the Brock the first chance you
get. New students are welcomed to the Pub with
open arms and are invited to try for staff positions.
You too can learn to avoid senior editors and
influence people. The TILLICUM

Near the end of the 1944-45 session, the
University of British Columbia witnesses the
birth of its newest organization—an organization
for returned men and women—the University
Branch of the Canadian Legion, B.E.S.L. Prior
to its formation the interests of the veterans were
looked after by the Canadian University Returned
Men's Association, the members of which decided
at the conclusion of the semester to reorganize
under the "IN UNITY IS STRENGTH" banner of
the Canadian Legion. Branch No. 72 was the first
of its kind to be formed! in Canada.
The campus Canadian Legion, since its foundation, has decided on a multi-fold program in the
interests of all ex-members of His Majesty's
Forces. The policy is to carry on the traditions
of the Canadian Legion which as a nation-wide
non-political organization has for years commanded a great deal of respect in Canada, its ideas and
program having greatly influenced the nation's
attitude toward the returned men of the last war,
and more recently, Canada's participation in this UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
war.  Their influence has been great in the treatment by the Government of th> new 'vets'.
With the thought in mind of carrying on this
participation in the interest of the ex-serviceman,
the Canadian Lsgion is anxious to have men and
women of the University calibre acquainted with
Legion policy to give a sane and intelligent
leadership in the affairs of the returned personnel,
and a proper understanding of their probems will
be invaluable during the period of rehabilitation
and readjustment which must follow th; r ?cent
world 'conflict. The University Branch, in common
with all branches of the Canadian Legion, is at
the service of all returned mm and women,
whether members or not, but in accordance with
our policy of unity is strength we sincerely hope
that you will give us your support by becoming
The Legion's Campus program has been designed
with the following objectives in mind: —
(1) To develop an interest In the problems of
all service men and women; an interest
which it is hoped will be carried on to other
legion branches when the member leaves
the University.
(2) Co-ordination and action, with support of
the national body, on problems facing the
ex-service student. This covers such matters
as grants, gratuities, housing, etc.
(3) To co-operate with other student bodies
in the initial assimilation of returned men
to campus life and to arrange such things
as special tutorship; part-time and summer
employment, etc.
(4) To promote discussion on Canada's national
problems in an effort to carry the fight for
the type of life we Canadians desire from
the fields of battle to a successful conclusion through the workings of our Canadian
(5)   To further the  spirit  of  comradeship  and
fellowship developed while serving in the
active forces.
With these objectives before   us    the   Campus
Legion hopes to add something to the academic
life of the University; something that will bring
to all the new veterans a greater insight into the
potential assets of Canada, enabling them to  do
their full share in making this country of ours
a true land of democracy. The TILLICUM
Information 50
Now at the brink of your University life, there
is no better time to learn a little of the history
of your great institution. Perhaps a brief resume
of this history will help you appreciate the work
and agitation done by friends of the University
and by the students themselves to make the
institution what it is today.
These people have done their part. It is up to
you to carry on their standards to help this
growing University on to a greater future.
In 1890 the Provincial Legislature passed an act
establishing a body known as the University of
British Columbia. Nothing more was done
however until 1894 when an Act was passed
allowing the affiliation of high schools in the
province with recognized Canadian Universities.
In 1899, Vancouver High School affiliated with
McGill University in order to offer first year Arts.
It then became known as Vancouver College.
Three years later, Victoria High School also
offered first year Arts, becoming Victoria College.
In that same year, Vancouver College began
offering second year Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating a body
known as the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning in British Columbia. That year
the Institution founded at Vancouver the McGill
University College of Vancouver. Shortly afterwards the Victoria College which was a part of
it, ceased to be.
First definite steps toward establishing the
University in its present condition were taken by
Dr. H. E. Young, then Minister of Education in
1907. He introduced the University Endowment
Act which later gave the University the great
tract of land which it now possess.
A year later this Act was followed by an Act
establishing and incorporating the University of
British Columbia and repealing the old Act of 1890.
This Act with its later amendments, determines
the present constitution of the University.
A site commission, appointed in 1910 recommended the vicinity of Vancouver for the proposed
University and the following year the Point Grey
site was granted. This grant consists of over 500
acres at the extremity of Point Grey.
The campus is bounded mainly by the Gulf
of Georgia. Between the campus and the City of
Vancouver, a tract of some 3000 acres has been
set aside to provide revenue for the University
by the sale or lease of the land. A fine residential
section has since been constructed here.
The first convocation, held August 1, 1912, chose
Mr. F. L. Carter-Cotton as first chancellor of the
University. In March 1913 the Lieutenant-Goverr
nor-in-Council appointed as President of the
University, F. F. Westbrook, 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, President. From its opening in 1915
till the summer of 1925, the University carried on
its work in the cramped quarters of part of the
site of the General Hospital in Fairview.
Work on the present Science Building was
begun in 1914, but was interrupted because of the
war. This building was not completed until the
great and now famous student campaign of 1922.
In this campaign, students paraded through the
streets of down town Vancouver complete with •
posters, loudspeakers and mass meetings. They
made house to house canvasses, wrote letters and
did everything possible to bring to public light
the stifling conditions of the Fairview 'Shacks'. 52
The climax of the campaign came when the
students marched to the Point Grey site and
perched on the steel skeleton of the unfinished
Science building.
As a direct result of this rousing campaign, work
was again started on the University and in the
fall of 1925, the Science Building, the Library and
nine other buildings were completed and ready
for occupancy.
To commemorate the great service rendered to
the University, by the students who took part in
the great trek, the Cairn service was inaugurated
in '1928. It has become one of the few traditions
of our young University.
The Cairn, situated on the Mall in front of the
Science building, is constructed of the rocks
carried by the students in their triumphal march
from the Fairview shaeks. Inside the Cairn is
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.
The inauguration of the new buildings which
resulted from the drive was held on October 15
and 16, 1925. This occasion also marked the first
granting of honorary degrees by the University.
Since that time, three additional buildings, the
Gymnasium, Stadium and Brock Memorial Hall
have been added ito the University. All three
buildings were obtained chiefly 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.
Operated by a student manager and assistant
this bureau operates to exchange second-hand
books among students in the most convenient
manner possible. The exchange is in the north
basement of the Brock and is open for business
at times announced in the Ubyssey and notices.
Applications for the position of manager and
assistant manager will be received by council,
which supervises the activities of the exchange.
Remuneration is on a comission basis.
When visiting the Book Exchange do not make
the mistake of inquiring at the Publications Board
Office. Pubsters are neither affiliated with nor
interested in the exchange. They know even less
about it than you do.
Books are accepted for resale only on the
following terms and on the understanding that the
depositing of books by the student constitutes an
acceptance by him on those terms;
1. The Book Exchange will be open for a period
of three weeks at the beginning of each term for
receiving books, dates to appear on notice boards
and in the Ubyssey.
2. A receipt will be given for all books received,
but no guarantee is made that all books can be
disposed of.
Care should be taken that this receipt is not lost. 54
3. The receipt number will be placed in the
front page of each book and the student's name
listed alphabetically in Index Book provided—
Receipt Number to be shown against name.
4. At the end of advertised three weeks, Cash
Vouchers will be made out for all books sold to
date, showing amount received for each book. A
deduction of ten per cent within the nearest five
cents will be made for the service of the Book
Exchaneg. Students may obtain these cash
vouchers from the Book Exchange on presentation
of the receipt, on a day to be specified by notices
on notice boards and in the Ubyssey.
5. Cash vouchers will be cashed on presentation
at- the General Office of the Alma Mater Society.
Care should be taken that these Cash Vouchers
are not lost, as duplicates cannot be obtained.
6. Books not sold during the fall term can be
left with the Book Exchange for sale during the
spring term.
7. The Book Exchange will close for the year
on May fifteenth. All books not sold must be
reclaimed by that date, also all cash vouchers must
be cashed by then, it being fully understood by the
depositor at the time of depositing, that all books
and money unclaimed by May fifteenth shall
become the property of the Alma Mater Society.
The Book Store which occupies a room in the
Auditorium Building is prepared to supply all the
text books required for the various courses offered
in the University, also fountain pens, note books,
loose-leaf refills, drawing paper and instruments.
The book store is open from 9 to 5 on week days
and from 9 to 1 Saturdays.
The National Federation of Canadian University
Students has arranged a system 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'
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 student
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.
Circulation Department
All books taken from the Library must be
charged at the general circulation desk which is
situated in the centre of the east well. The time

Student letter racks are situated in the lower hall
of the Arts Building. The letter rack for clubs
and societies is at the west end of the Alma Mater
Society office in the Brock Memorial Building.
The official address is "The University of British
Columbia, West Point Grey, B.C.
Notice' Boards are placed in every University
Building and in the space between the Arts and
Auditorium Buildings (the Quad). These boards
arc under the jurisdiction of the Mamook Club of
the Alma Mater Society. Students are at liberty
to use them. Some boards are reserved for the use

For admission to the many Varsity affairs
featuring anything from Paul Robeson to unknown
local talent the Student Pass System is used.
The funds for this system are made up of a
portion of the AMS fee and are put into a separate
Pass System Fund. A card is given to each member
of the AMS which admits the holder to all Varsity
Functions which come under the jurisdiction of
the Pass System.
Such functions include class parties, the Players
Club and Mussoc productions, debates, track meets
and league games.
This card also gives reduced rates to the students
at Odeon and Famous Players Theatres.
Each student supports the Pass System with the
payment of his or her AMS fees. It is up to
every individual to receive the full benefit of this
pass system by attending all the Pass features
throughout the year. UNIVERSITY OF B.C.

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,

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
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 the 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

Organized three years ago to direct a centralized
university war effort, the War Aid Council has
proved invaluable in boosting UBC's war drives
and co-ordinating all war effort activities.
Numerous money-raising drives have been sponsored by the Council, which is composed of
prominent students with an active interest in such
drives. In addition to appealing for financial
assistance, the War Aid Council last term held a
successful campaign to recruit blood donors for
the Red Cross.
Freshette Supper — First social events of the
session are the activities staged for the benefit of
the frosh. Freshettes are entertained at the Big
and little Sister Supper in the Caf. Usually the
celebrants attire themselves as children and spend
a gala evening releasing inhibitions. Little sisters
who have violated the frosh rules of conduct are
severely chastised.
Frosh Smoker—An evening with pipes, tobacco
and cider is staged to welcome the freshmen. This
strictly stag session also features a tribunal which
deals with male miscreants who have strayed
from the paths of frosh righteousness. Spontaneous
displays of spirit such as snake parades and
"lifting" of Austins are frowned upon.
Frosh Reception—At the end of the initiation
period the frosh are formally welcomed to the
undergraduate body at the Prosh Reception.
Freshmen are admitted free and must wear the
regulation initiation regalia until the welcoming
ceremony is completed. The reception invariably
attracts a large turnout, but rumours that the
walls of the hall bulge when two people inhale
simultaneously are unfounded.
Hoine-Coming—The last full week in October
features Homecoming week-end, with entertainment in honour of the graduates. Organized by
Council, Homecoming brings the undergrads and UNIVERSITY OF B.C.
alumni in closer contact. The main events are a
football game, a banquet, the renowned Po.tlaeh
and the Homecoming Dance.
Class Parties—Each class of each faculty is
entitled to a class party to which only members
of the class are admitted. Owing to "technical
difficulties" the Aggies and Redshirts prefer to
hold banquets for the entire faculty.
Undergraduate Balls — During the year each
faculty is allowed to hold one formal ball, usually
at the Commodore. Although these balls are open
to the entire undergraduate body, the present
overcrowding makes tickets difficult to obtain.
The Science Ball early in February features tables
decorated by different departments in competition
for a so-called "mystery prize".
The Engineers Informal in the fall and the
Aggie Barn Dance in the spring are staged for
the enjoyment of the faculties concerned. Outsiders are severely dealt with if caught, so if
you want to sneak in you'd better brush up on
Science and Aggie yells.
Red Cross Ball—Early in the spring term the
War Aid Council promotes the Red Cross Ball
in aid of the Red Cross. This is the big social
event of the year, complete with chorus girls and
a Ball Queen.
Hi-Jinx—Strictly feminine is Hi-Jinx, a fancy
dress party for women only, held early in January.
A small admission fee is charged. Although any
male attending this party in disguise does so at
great personal risk, last year Calvin J. "Patsy"
Whitehead of the Ubyssey covered the event with
the aid of a couple of fifth columnists to get a
scoop which appeared in university papers all
across Canada.
Co-Ed Ball—The last week in February all the
campus Daisy Mays grab their Li'l Abners and
rush them off to the Co-Ed Ball. Here Joe Blotz
can relax and forget his pocketbook, because this
is one time when it is the woman who pays.
Christmas and Spring Plays—Late in the fall
term the Players' Club presents four plays
(including the student prize play) in the
Auditorium, for students only. Admission is free.
Early in March the club also presents a Spring
Play which is open to the public, and for which
admission is charged.

Fraternities and sororities are groups oi 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
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 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.
Representatives from each of the twelve campus
fraternities form the Inter-FVaternity 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 Panhellenic Constitution revised in 1938-39
presents a democratic system by which sophomore
women apply for membership and the sorority
may contact their possible 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.
Central governing body of the nine Greek
sororities   on   the   campus   is   the   Pan-Hellenic 66
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.

commonly referred to on the campus are in

Philanthropic work includes hampers for the
underprivileged at Christmas and throughout the
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.
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 68
housemother. The cost of board and laundry
should not exceed twenty-seven dollars per 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.
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.
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 their day that it was decided to erect
a student Union building to permanently commemorate the Dean and his wife. The dredm
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
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
bonds and finance the Brock Hall.
Throughout the summer of 1939 Past President
Carson McGuire and President-elect John Pearson
perfected plans which were approved by the
Brock 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 enlargement.
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. TO
On the southern side of the building are the
offices of the Alma Mater Society, the headquarters of the Students' Council and the Employment Bureau. Here in addition to the general
office, are the offices of the President of AMS and
trie 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 Player's 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, the Radio Society
office, and the Publications 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.
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 1600 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 $40,000,
was financed by a bond issue.
UBC abounds with interesting scenes and items.
One of the first unusual scenes that greets the
eye of the freshman is Frank Underbill's no-doubt
famous "Caf". This is, first impressions to the
contrary, primarily a place to eat. It is also the
place to meet that cute little number that sits
next to you in English 1.
The Library houses many things other than
dusty tomes. Here may be found the most
complete representative collection of Polynesian
curio relics in the world. They were collected by
Dr. Frank Burnett who spent several years sailing
around the cannibal islands of the south Pacific.
Presented to the university by an anonymous
donor the Canadian Jubilee Memorial Window
occupies a place of honour at the western end of
the main concourse of the Library. These windows
were unveiled on November 28, 1928 by the Hon.
S. F. Tolmie, then Premier of British Columbia.
A series of paintings by John Innes depicting
early scenes in the history of the province hang
in the Library.
Through the untiring efforts of the late Mr.
John Ridington, former university librarian, the
Carnegie Corporation of New York donated an
extensive art collection to the university. The
collection consists of 185 volumes, 200 reproductions and 40 especially framed large paintings.
This collection may be found in the Art Room
in the Library.
Another gift of the Carnegie Corporation is the
Library of Congress Catalogue, situated in the
main lobby of the library. This catalogue, a
collection of more than 1,500,000 cards is valued
at $65,000 and lists every book copyrighted in the
United States. There are only two other such
catalogues in Canada. 72
On the lower floor of the Library is the
University trophy case, containing relics of the
glories of bygone days. These relics include the
ball used by the "Wonder Team" Thunderbirds
who won the Dominion Ba ketball Championship.
Over on the west side of the campus lies the
forestry belt and the botanical gardens, localities
of great interest to students of botany and others.
The totem poles in the gardens were presented
to the university in 1927 by the Alumni Association.
They are from the Point Grey Musquiam Reserve
and are the last two of the tribe. On the right
is the Capilano pole, depicting the famous Capilano
Chief. The left pole is symbolic of the magical
powers of Tsem-Lano, a great Musquiam warrior.
Also in the Botanical Gardens is the sundial
engraved with pictures of the Lions and the
Cairn. It was presented to the university in 1928
by B. S. Hartley (professor of mathematics, retired
1931) who designed it especially for the spot on
which it stands.
The beautiful Japanese Lantern and Gardens
were presented to the university in 1935 by friends
of Inazo Niobe, a great student and apostle of
international goodwill.
Outside the AMS offices in Brock Hall are two
war memorials—one to commemorate the sacrifices
and service of the members of " 'D' Coy., 196th
Batallion, C. E. F., Western Universities in the
Great War, 1914-18;" and the other in honour of

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 three years. The women
again supported it when they voted unanimously
for its continuation this year. Under this plan,
co-eds spend two hours weekly in activities chosen
from two majors groups, War Work A and War
Work B.
Under War Work A, one hour of P.E. 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
The Canadian Red Cross Corps, which was so
suhcessful last year, will continue its fine work

Definite announcements regarding Red Cross
work will be made early in the term.

Freshette Supper: Food, fun, frolic and punishment (for the naughty freshettes) will highlight
the freshette supper. This interesting conglomeration comes in the first week—so get your childhood
clothes out of mothballs, polish up your appetite
and watch out for the Gestapo, freshettes.
Frosh Reception: Big Sisters go on the prowl to
snare escorts for their little sisters. Brock hall
becomes the scene of old friendships renewed, new
friendships cemented and a big welcome from
UBC to her newcomers.
Fashion Show: Latest styles and ultra fashions
grace our co-eds in a fashion show no one should
miss.  This is a must for your social calendar.
Hi-Jinx: Games, contests, skits, etc., make an
evening of strictly feminine fun. Zany costumes
are definitely in order. It all adds up to a terrific
party, wrapped up in the gym and tied in a
hilarious knot.   |(Definitely no men allowed).
Sadie Hawkins' Week: Christmas holidays will
be followed by a female free for all, when all the
best Dog Patch traditions wil be observed and
every Daisy Mae will have a chance to lay man

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, anr freshmen classes
in the past have had men on first teams in every
sport.   Watch the notice boards, and turn out!
Physical Directors:

Under the supervision of Mr. Van Vliet and Miss
Moore, the former directors, 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-fratenyty, 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 outside competition which had to be curtailed because
of the military training program.
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 82
and a successful, active season was the result.
It is expected that with more time to work
with competition can be arranged so that the
upswing can be continued and the basis' laid for
a return to the high standards enjoyed in former
This is now the major
sport on the campus, both
men and women entering
teams in league play.
Totie says "C'm-on, kids
get out and try for a place
on one of the five squads."
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 Outdoor Club combined with the Ski Club
has its headquarters in the Groust Mountain Ski
Village. As well as organizing skiing as a major
sport in the winter, this club plans extensive hikes
and mountain climbing expeditions during the
spring and summer. As accomodations is limited,
all persons wishing to become members must
make the minimum number of work hikes.
Soccer is a major sport this year, with UBC
entering teams in the V and D League. All games
will be played Saturday atfernoon. Several
assistant managers are needed. Freshmen are

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
■ women, 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
introduced on the campus. As many as 200 girls
turn out regularly 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 fall regatta is held
wifh 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. .•■A
Open to both men and women, the Golf Club
has its headquarters at the University Golf
Course. A handicap tournament is held during
the fall term and the University Championship
tournament in the spring. Fifty-cent membership
cards enable a student to obtain a cheaper rate

Songs and
Yells 132
We wear the blue gold of the victors,
We ara 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.
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.
Education '32.
Alma Mater, by the dwelling
Th:re is set the western sea,
Mountains shed their benediction
On the hopes that rest in thee.
Alma Mater, to thy children
In the spring-tim;  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,
Music—D. O. Durkin, Arts '40.
Haii!   Hail!   the gang's all here,
What the hell do we care,

We're going to win our game another time,     z
We're going to yell, yell, yell like hell.
For the University we'll yell like hell,
We'rs 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! 134
My girl's a hullabaloo,

Just like the others do.
And in my future life
She's going to be my wife.

Just like the other dames

Just like the others do, ste.

Wears all the latest clothes,
Powders her little nos;,

When she goes walking
She does the talking.

She doss the teasing, etc.
As we grow older
She will grow bolder.
And she will hold her
Hear! on my shoulder, etc.
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
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 Hill 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,
0 it's all very well, but ain't no sell
An! you'll damn soon tell it's gonna rain like Hell.
(Engineers' Song)
Come all you freshmen if you want to hear
The story of a brave engineer;
He started to college in the fall of thirty-three,
Why he took up engineering is a mystery to me.
Casey Jones couldn't hold his liquor,
Casey Jones couldn't hold his beer.
Casey Jones never got thru college
He never got thru college 'cause he couldn't hold
his beer.
Casey Jones was the engineer's pride 136
In football or hockey he always saved his side.
He was a wiz  in    classwork,   his   reports   were
always clear,
Eut he never got his parchment 'cause he couldn't
hold his beer.
Cafey'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 b--r
The grands 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, engrav these letters
'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.
Kitsilano,  Capilano,  Siwash squaw,
Kla-how-yah, Tillicum, Skookum Wah,
Hi-yu mamook, Mucka mucka zip,
B.C. Varsity, rip, rip, rip,
S-s-s-s-s-s-s Boom!
Let's Go Varsity!
Let's Go Varsity!
Let's Go Varsity!
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Sssssh! Sssssh! Sssssh! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Sssssh! Sssssh! Sssssh! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Sssssh! Sssssh! Sssssh! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Varsity Rah! (Very Fast) 1
(This is the yell used to welcome visiting teams)
Kla-how-yah  (Team name)!
Kla-how-yah  (Team name)!
Kla-how-yah! How are you? (Team name)!
MooOOoo ----- squish, squish, squish,
MooOOoo ----- squish, squish, squish,
MooOOoo ----- sqvish, squish, squish,
We are, we are, we are the Engineers!
We can, we can, demolish forty beers!
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum and follow us!
We don't give a damn for any damn man
Who don't give a damn for us.   SCIENCE!
Railroads, Powers, Harbours, Docks,
Dynamos, Motors, Engines, Locks,
Bridges, Trestles, Tunnels, Beers,
Woooooo Woooooo ! ENGINEERS
We Sre the men of culture,
Of intelect supreme,
From men like us the coaches choose the bulwarks
of the team.
Oh phocey on the Engineers,
Their records smeared with sin.
While they demolish forty beers
We quaff down fifty gin.
