In publishing the present Handbook,
the students of The University of
British Columbia continue a tradition
of mutual helpfulness: its pages contain information definitely compiled
by students for other students' needs.
It assists undergraduates to make that
personal adjustment to environment
which must take place not only at the
beginning of their Freshman year, but
to some extent also in each subsequent year of their course.
But it is more than a mere directory from which each individual must
select a little information from a mass
of uninteresting data. It exists to remind the student of the great variety
of activities that are included in college life, of the diversity that forms
a unity. The very word "university",
originally meaning "totality" or "wholeness", implicitly protests against the
narrow specialist and against the fanatic, either re-actionary or revolutionary.
It is my earnest hope that every
reader of the Handbook may see in it
the embodiment of a high ideal: the
harmony between unity and diversity,
between the enthusiasm which is the
essence of life and the mutual understanding which is the essence of civilization.
L. S Klinck, President UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
President, Alma Mater Society
A. M. S. President's Message
Klahow-yah Class of '39! The Alma
Mater Society extends to you the welcome of the student body and of the
Students'   Council.
As students of the University you
are entering a routine different from
that to which you have been accustomed in High School. You should adjust yourself to the change as quickly
as possible.
You are offered here every opportunity for a liberal education but what
you derive from these opportunities
depends upon the effort you are willing to make. No one will force you
to work. Your success depends upon
The Student's Handbook has been
issued to give the necessary information on all activities on the campus
which are under the control of the
Alma Mater Society. A certain number of non-academic activities are
necessary to obtain the greatest benefit from college. For this reason you
should thoroughly acquaint yourself
with the Handbook so that you can
select the clubs and societies which
you would like to join. UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
Although the University of British
Columbia is young in years her students have already established traditions ajid made achievements of
which we are justly proud. It is up to
you Class of '39 to carry on these traditions and live up to the standards
set by your predecessors.
Historical Sketch
In 1890 the Provincial Legislature
passed an Act establishing a body
politic and corporate named "The University of British Columbia". No
material progress was made, however,
until 1894, when an Act was passed
which permitted the affiliation of
high schools in the Province with
recognized  Canadian  Universities.
In 1899 Vancouver High School was
affiliated with McGill University in
order to provide first year work in
Arts, and took the name of Vancouver
College. First year work in Arts was
offered by Victoria High School when
it became Victoria College by affiliating with McGill University in 1902.
In the same year Vancouver College
undertook the second year in Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution for the
Advancement of Learning of British
Columbia, which in the same year
established at Vancouver the McGill
University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College which was part of it
ceased to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr. H. E.
Young, Minister of Education, in 1907.
when he introduced a "University En- UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
dowment Act". This Act was followed in 1908 by an Act establishing and
incorporating the University of British Columbia and repealing the old
Act of 1890-91. This Act with its
subsequent admendments, determines
the present constitution of the University.
A site commission, appointed in
1910, recommended the vicinity of
Vancouver and in the following year
the Point Grey site was granted to
the University. The grant now consists of 548 acres at the extremity of
Point Grey. The waters of the Gulf
of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University campus.
A tract of some 3,000 acres of Government land immediately adjoining the
site and lying between it and the City
of Vancouver has been set aside by
the Government in order that University revenue may be provided by
sale or lease.
The first Convocation, held on August 1st, 1912, chose Mr. F. L. Carter-
Cotton as first chancellor of the University:' In March, 1913, the Lieuten-
ant~Governor-in-Council appointed as
President of the University, F. F.
Wesbrook, M.A., M.D., CM., LLD. On
April 4th, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie,
the  present  chancellor,  was  elected.
On the death of President Wesbrook,
October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean
of the Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed Acting President, and on June
1st, 1919, President.
From its opening in 1915 till the
summer of 1925, the University carried on its work in temporary quarters on part of the site of the General
Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work was commenced
on the Science Building at the Point
Grey site in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on
this building was resumed in 1923,
shortly after the great Student Campaign. The Science Building and the
Library, as well as nine other buildings, were completed and ready for
occupancy in the fall of 1925.
The inauguration of the new buildings was held on October 15th and
16th, 1925, on which occasion honorary degrees were granted by the University for the first time.
In 1931, due to the efforts of the
students, largely, in their "stadium
Campaign", an excellent playing field
was constructed on the campus and
it is hoped that suitable seating accommodation will be provided in the
near future. UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
Freshman Information
In co-operation with Dean Buchanan and the faculty, the Students'
Council have formed this year a
Freshman Information Bureau.
The primary purpose of this bureau
is to advise incoming Freshmen on
proposed courses and extra-curricular
activities. Its suggestions are not
necessarily final to the Freshman but
merely advisory.
The duties of this Bureau will commence on September 20th, one week
before the opening of the University,
and will continue until September
30th, three days after the opening
The personnel of this Bureau consists of eight members of the Alma
Mater Society, preferably Seniors.
The Junior Member, the President of
the W.U.S., the President of Men's
Athletics, the President of the A.M.
U.S., the President of the Sc.M.U.S.,
and the President of the Ag.M.U.S.,
all have permanent representation on
the Bureau. The other two members
are to be appointed by Council before
the opening of the Bureau.
The office of the Bureau will be in
the  Administration  Building.    Fresh-
men are requested to apply to the
Bureau for advice during the specified
time, although certain members will
be on call for a week following the
opening of the University.
The W. U. S. will also have an information bureau, composed of the executive and committees, in the lower
hall of the Arts Bldg. from the 25th
to the 28th.
Freshman   will   get   their   insignia
at Room 303, Auditorium Bldg. UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.
April 10th, 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;
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 property under the
control of the University, are
hereby absolutely prohibited.
Every student of the University
and every person under the control in any way of the University
is absolutely forbidden to at any
time commit any act, neglect or
default which may cause or tend
to cause injury to any person or
property anywhere.
Every person within the confines
of property under the control of
the University shall obey the rules
and regulations of the Governing
Authorities and shall not commit
any act, neglect or default which
may cause or tend to cause injury to any person or property. UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.

Medical Examiner within the last five
years will report, immediately on entrance, to the University Health Service and secure an appointment for
examination, which must be kept on
the date and at the hour assigned.

ahove regulations will be reported to
the University Health Committee.
1.   Discovery of Infectious persons
(a) All cases Of illness developing
on the campus in students,
employees, staff, etc. are to report for inspection at the University Health Service for decision as to possible infectiveness   (not   for   diagnosis). UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.
(b) All cases of illness in the same
group developing off the campus (during the academic
year) are to send word immediately, preferably by phone,
to the University Health Service; and to report for Inspection, before re-admission to the
University, at the University
Health   Service.
2, Disposal of Infectious persons.
(a) All persons reasonably suspected of infectiveness are to be
excluded from contact with
others until shown to be non-
infective; hence infectives of
Class 1(a) are to be sent home
at once by the University
Health Service for further report, diagnosis by attending
physician, and isolation for the
proper period of infectiveness;
infectives of both Classes 1(a),
Kb) are to return to the University not earlier than the actual termination of such infectiveness.
3.   Disposal  of contacts  (I.e. persons
exposed to infectives)
(a) All University contacts of infectives are to report to the
University Health Service for
determination of susceptibility
to  the   particular  infection   in
question. When insusceptibility
is not established, contacts are
to be excluded from the University during the period (potentially infective period) in which
said contacts may become Infections as the result of developing the infection concerned.
(b) In lieu of 3(a), and in order
to minimize loss of claas attendance, susceptible contacts
may arrange for inspection by
the University Health Service
before admission to the University dally during said period of
potential infectiveness.
(c) Susceptible contacts, with the
approval of the University
Health Service, may arrange
for similar daily inspection by
their own physician or properly qualified Public Health
Nurse; but proper certificates
must be furnished to the University Health Service by said
(Circumstances rarely permit 3(c)
on a convenient or satisfactory basis
—hence  3(b)   is usually practiced).
4. Vaccination against smallpox will
be performed free of charge, for students who cannot otherwise secure It.
All students are advised to be vaccinated. UNIVERSITY OE B. C
5. Athletic students sustaining injuries: A signed statement from the University Health Service is necessary
before such athletic students may obtain medical attention under the Students' Council regulations concerning
financial assistance, which latter is
not available to any other than athletes.
Liability for Athletic
The University Authorities, the Alma Mater Society, or any subsidiary
club or organization do not assume
any responsibility for the payment of
damages, doctor's bills, or hospital expenses resulting from injuries to players or participants in athletics. Any
compensation shall be deemed to be

Organization of the
Student Body
The Student's Council is the governing body, its nine members being
elected by the students late in the
Spring term. This body meets every
Monday night during the term to discuss all motions for student welfare.
The Presidents of the Men's and Women's Undergraduate Societies, the
Presidents of the Men's and Women's
Athletic Societies and the President
of the Literary and Scientific Executive, represent definite bodies of student opinion. These members bring
up matters relative to their own subsidiaries, but are expected to know
and discuss matters outside their own
Each of the subsidiary clubs submits a budget early in the fall to its
own governing body, which in turn
submits it to the Council through the
club president Budgets are then
allotted by Council. In addition to
club budgets, special grants may be
made at the discretion of the Council.
Each club has its own executive,
which is elected by undergraduates interested in the activities of that club.
The Publications Board is a semi-
independent body, having no representation on Council, though the Editor-in-Chief holds an "A" position.

Three Publications are undertaken
by the Publication Board: The "Ubyssey", the "Totem", and the "Handbook".
The "Ubyssey", now on a firm financial basis, enters its ninth year as
ancial basis, enters its ninth year as
a 5-column, twice-weekly journal. It
appears every Tuesday and Friday
noon throughout the session, except
in examination weeks.
The "Ubyssey" is the University
newspaper, dealing with the current
events of college life. It is managed
entirely by the students, and new students are given trials as reporters
during the first months.
A Literary Supplement published
twice a year is open to contributions.
The Publications Board is affiliated
with the Pacific Intercollegiate Press
Association, and exchange news form
other colleges in Canada and the United States is featured.
The "Totem" is the University Annual, the traditional publication to the
graduating class. A special staff prepares this annual, its editor being a
member of the Senior or Junior year
of any faculty.
The 'Handbook" is that interesting
little document which now rests, in
all probability, between the thumb and
forefinger of your left hand. 60
Inter-University Exchange of
Through this scheme the National
Federation of Canadian University
Students hopes to most effectively
serve the fundamental purposes for
which it was formed. The scheme offers an opportunity to Canadian University Students, without extra expense to themselves, to receive a
year's study at a university in another
part of Canada.
Briefly speaking, the Exchange
Scheme provides that each university, through its selection committee
of a member of faculty and two students, shall nominate, on application,
any number of students not exceeding
one per cent, of the enrolment. The
only prerequisites are that the student desiring to take advantage of the
scheme must have completed at/ least
two years of study, with at least Second Class standing in the Second
Year, shall be an undergraduate below the final year, and be representative in a general way of the student
Through the co-operation of the various university authorities in promoting this scheme, it is provided that
exchange students are exempt from
tuition fees, which, except in extreme
cases, is more than sufficient compensation for the railway fee involved in
effecting the exchange.
The President of the Students' Council is the representative of the N. F.
C u S. and can give full information respecting the Exchange Scheme.
The Curator is the keeper of all
the athletic equipment of the Alma
Mater Society. He is in his office in
the south-east corner of the Gymnasium at certain hours as posted and
all equipment must be obtained from
him and returned to him at the end
of the season. For those desirous of
playing Canadian Rugby, a system
has been introduced whereby a student may, after depositing a nominal
sum with the Curator, obtain a complete outfit for the season. His deposit is refunded when he returns the
outfit at the end of the season.
Requisition System
No bills will be honoured by the
Students' Council unless they are covered by purchase order from the Business Secretary. The business houses
of this city have been informed of this
ruling and it will be rigidly observed
by Council. a
Undergraduate Societies
The Undergraduate Societies comprise the Women's Undergraduate
Society, the Men's Undergraduate Society, and the subsidiary class organizations.
Membership in the Undergraduate
Societies is conferred automatically on
all students at the University. The
Women's Undergraduate Executive
is composed of an Honorary President, President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, President of Nursing,
the Vice Presidents of the undergraduate classes of Arts and of Education,
the Representative of Agriculture and
the President of Phrateres. There being also four standing committees on
Reception, Finance, Entertainment
and Publicity.
The Men's Undergraduate executive
is composed of President, Secretary-
Treasurer, and Presidents of the Arts
Men's, the Science and the Agriculture Undergraduate Societies. The
class presidents are members of the
Undergraduate Society of the faculty
to which they belong; thus the class
organizations are connected with the
Undergraduate Societies.
The duties of the Undergraduate
Societies are mainly social; also, the
president of each society is a member of a standing committee on discipline, see By-Law No. 31 of the
Alma Mater Constitution).
The object of the Women's Undergraduate Society is to consider and advance the interests of the women
students through the promotion of
extra-curricular activities, all undergraduate women students and ail
graduate women students who have
paid their Alma Mater fees for the
current session being active members
and the honorary members being comprised of the women members of the
The W. U. S. sponsors the Hi-Jinx,
the Co-Ed and a tea dance, the proceeds of these functions going to the
Students' Union Building Fund. For
the benefit of the Freshettes the society sponsors a "Big and Little Sister
Project": every Freshette has a Big
Sister who is responsible for making
her familiar with the Campus activities. The list of Big and Little Sisters
is posted on the W. U. S. Notice Board
during the first week of the fall term.
The Society also sponsors the class
teas for the Out-of-Town women and
the Freshette supper and Big and
Utile Sister tea which are functions
for welcoming the Freshettes.
It is the sincere wish of his year's
executive that the feeling of strangeness   experienced   by   the   Freshettes 64
may be completely replaced with a
feeling of "camaraderie". W.U.S. welcomes you Freshettes!

Points of Interest
The Canadian Jubilee Memorial Windows are one of the most recent additions to the Library. They are situated near the western end of the main
concourse, but may also be viewed
from the hallway below. Presented to
the University by an unknown donor,
the windows were unveiled on November 28, 1928, by the Honorable S. F.
Tolmie, Premier of British Columbia.
WAR MEMORIAL—Inside the main
doorway of the Science Building are
erected two war memorials—one "to
commemorate the supreme sacrifices
and willing services of the members
of the 'D' Co'y, 196th Battalion, C.
E. F., Western Universities, in the
Great War, 1914-1918;" and the other
"in honour of the B. C. reinforcing
platoon, 196th Western Universities
Overseas  Battalion,  C. E. F." 66
< THE SUN DIAL —The Sun Dial,
with its oblong face and engraving of
the Cairn and the Lions, is a familiar
object to all visitors of, the Botanical
Gardens. It was presented to the University In 1926 by B. S. Hartley (Professor of Mathematics—retired, 1931)
who designed it especially for the position in which it now stands.
The Library of the University contains a collection of curious relics,
rated as the most complete representative Polynesian collection in the
world. The collection was made by
Dr. Frank Burnett, who, during a period of 35 years, sailed around the
cannibal islands in the South Pacific
Among the exhibits are figures of
Polynesian gods, native implements,
several skulls, and samples of native
dress. Bill Tansley superintends this
museum of relics.
STAMP COLLECTION—The University stamp collection comprises the
postage stamps of Canada and the
early British North America colonies;
it contains many interesting stamps,
dating from the time of Queen Victoria to the present day. This collection is not yet complete, and all new
contributions will be welcomed. Those
interested may have access to the collection through the registrar.
TOTEM POLES—The Totem Poles
now situated in the Botanical Gardens, were presented in 1927 by the
Alumni Association. They are from
the Musquiam Reserve, Point Grey,
and are the last two of the tribe. The
pole on the right is the Capilano Pole,
a carving of the celebrated Capilano
Chief; on the left is the Tsem-Lano
Pole, symbolic of the magical powers
of Tsem-Lano, a great Musquiam warrior.
The series of paintings by John Innes which hang in the Library, represent early scenes in the history of
British Columbia.
Museum is located in the southern
wing of the Applied Science Building.
It contains valuable and interesting
collections of material illustrative of
both physical and historical branches
of geology and new additions are constantly being made.
THE CAIRN—The Cairns was first
set up as a memorial of the province-
wide campaign in 1922, when a group
of enthusiastic students marched from
Fairview to the new University and
dedicated the Cairn. Only a skeleton
of the present University stood then.
The Cairn Service for Freshmen,
which was inaugurated in 1928, has
become a tradition at the University. 68
JAPANESE LANTERN AND GARDEN—This beautiful memorial situated near the botanical gardens was
presented by the friends of Inazo Ni-
tobe to the University of British Columbia. On August 29, 1935, the university was pleased to make formal
acceptance of this memorial to a great
student and an apostle of international goodwill.

:r' It is the aim of the Men's and
Women's Athletic Association to promote clean sport, and to prevent the
unhealthy condition resulting from indoor work of the student. There are
coaches for all sports, who give their
time voluntarily and who have been
star athletes. They have been carefully selected with the influence which
they have on their athletes in mind;
with your support they try to develop
first sportsmen, and second, a winning team.
The University does not seek to
train star athletes, but to develop
young and inexperienced athletes.
There are many different sports and
teams of all calibre in each sport; the
places on teams are given without
favoritism or prejudice; nationality,
age, experience, pedigree, bankroll,
past records, etc., do not mean a
thing; the place is open for the best
man. There is an opportunity for
everyone who is physically fit, and we
are anxious for you to take advantage
of this—it is to your interest and ours.
To those of you who are not capable
of active physical participation, we
offer positions managing these teams.
This is an excellent stepping-stone to
executive work. 78
Here we allow the Freshmen the
opportunity to play on any team on
which they can win a place. The
Freshman classes in the past have
had men on the first teams in every
sport; that is the challenge that they
leave. Watch the notice boards for the
first practice and go on out!

Membership in the Men's Athletic
Association is automatically conferred
on all men students in the Alma Mater
Society. The executive of the body
composed of the presidents of all
branches of sport, is responsible for
the organization, supervision and administration of athletics for men.
The Association has been recognized
as a local board of the Amateur Athletic Union of Canada. Any athlete
intending to play on any outside team
must obtain written permission from
Men's Athletics; if such is not done,
the athlete is liable for suspension
from all amateur athletics.
To encourage a man to stick to the
sport he is best suited for, we give
our highest athletic award to an athlete who measures up to a certain
standard in that sport. However, most
of the Big Blocks go to the Major
Sports, the small letters to the Minor
Sports, and the plain letters to the
Sub-Minor Sports. The second team
in a Major Sport has rating of Minor
Sport, while the third team in a Major Sport and the second team of a
Minor Sport have Sub-Minor rating.
The sports are classified into four
groups as follows, due to achievement
and interest shown:
(a) Major: Basketball, Canadian
Rugby, English Rugby, Track,
(b) Sub-Major:   Swimming.
(c) Minor: Badminton, Golf, Grass
Hockey, Ice Hockey, Rowing.
(d) Sub-Minor: Boxing, Fencing,
Gymnasium, Outdoors, Skating. 80
This Club is entirely separate from
the Awards Committee, membership
being automatically conferred to holders of the U. B. C. Big Block Award.
Its aims are to bring about a unity of
spirit and effort for the furtherance of
Varsity sport and to keep in touch
with preparatory schools in order to
advise prospective athletes for University sports. Members of the Club
often handle the seat sale for athletic
as well as home-coming activities.
(Geo. Crosson, Senior Manager)
Four teams are fielded in City
leagues by the Basketball Club. Occasionally trips are made to the East,
to Vancouver Island, and to Seattle

Essentially, fraternities and sororities are merely groups of students,
with common ideals and a natural liking for one another, organized into
secret societies of from fifteen to forty
members each, and they may be
"local", "national", or "international".
Men's and women's fraternities operate in similar ways.
The system whereby these organizations make contacts with prospective
members is known as "rushing". It
consists of association by members of
the fraternity with the prospect
through social affairs and other means
in order to become acquainted with
him, and is carried on according to
definite rules agreed to by all the
fraternities. At the end of the rushing season the fraternity decides
whether or not it wants the person
concerned as a member, and if it does,
one of its members gives him a "bid"—
or invitation to join.
From the Freshmans viewpoint the
rushing season is an opportunity to
"size up" the various fraternities. He
often finds it very difficult to make up
his mind, particularly if a number of
fraternities are rushing him. Thus
the best course for him is to get acquainted  with them as early in the
term as possible so that he may form
his own impartial opinion of each of
them, and thus may not allow himself to be "high-pressured" into joining one which is not best suited to
him. It is extremely important to
him, if he joins a fraternity at all, to
join one whose members he really
esteems as individuals, and at the
same time whose ideals are similar
to his own, for under other conditions
than these fraternity life would be a
total failure. Thus if he is not very
enthusiastic about the fraternity or
fraternities that may rush him, he
will be much wiser to refuse their
bids. A more desirable one may rush
him later on in the same or a subsequent year, for sometimes students
are bid as late as their fourth year.
The rushee should investigate thoroughly and impartially the fraternity
question. A fraternity entails considerable financial obligations and he
should know exactly what these are
before accepting a bid. Concerning
these problems, and also concerning
the rushing rules, he may obtain complete information from any member
of a fraternity that is rushing him.
But whether he joins a fraternity
or not he should always remember
that he owes his first loyalty to his
university and its activities. 120 UNIVERSITY  OF  B.  C.

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.
And in my future life
She's going to be my wife.
How in the world d'ja find that out?
She told me so.
She goes to all the games
Just like the other dames,
I fork out all the change
Just like the others do, etc.
When we go walking
She does the talking,
I do the squeezing,
She does the teazing, etc.
As we grow older
She will grow bolder,
And she will hold her
Head on my shoulder, etc.
There Is A Tavern In The Town
There is a tavern in the town, in the
And there my dear love sits him down,
sits him down,
And   drinks  his   wine   'mid   laughter
And never, never thinks of me.
• (Chorus)
Fare thee well, for I must leave thee,
Do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends
must part.
Adieu,    adieu    kind    friends;    adieu,
adieu, adieu;
I can no longer stay with you, stay
with you;
I'll hang my harp on a weeping willow
And may the world go well with thee.
Hail To The Gold And Blue
Sons of our Alma Mater,*
Gird you against the foe,
Count not the cost but fight boys,
And on to victory we'll go.
Hearts that are never weary,
Hearts that are brave and true,
Glorious the cause and worthy,
Hail to the Gold and Blue.
When in thy halls we gather,
May hope attend our way,
When from thy courts we wander,
Let faith and truth alone hold sway.
Go  forth in exultation,
Ever our pledge renew,
Source of our inspiration,
Hail to the Gold and Blue.
Wm.  C.  Gibson. 126
Alma Mater
Alma Mater, guardian of our youth,
Fair   is   the   laurel   wreath   that
crowns thy brow,
Friend of our country and the friend
of truth
Thy children hail thee now.
Alma Mater, daughter of the years,
The  great of other days are with
thee yet;
Speak  thou  their  high  faith  in  our
duller ears,
Forbid us to forget.
Alma Mater, watcher of the hours,
Thou lookest on the mountains and
the sea,
And rulest in the might of other powers
In loftier majesty.
Alma Mater, feeder of the flame,
High hopes and noble purposes are
On us, whose pulses quicken at thy
Grant that the light may shine.
Alma Mater, mother of our love,
Many the paths we tread in future
Yet naught that time shall bring can
e'er remove
Thy memory or thy praise.
