EDITOR'S NOTE
The university you enter this year is
a /ar different one from that which your
fellow undergraduates entered as Freshmen. Social activities have been greatly curtailed and military training and
war work have been increased. How-
ever, in spite of this, there will still be
a certain amount of that old varsity
spirit pervading about the campus this
year and it is to help you "get in the
swing of things" that we published this
handbook. Everything concerned with
university life is contained in these pages.
Whenever you are in doubt as to how
to do anything, where to get something,
or what to do, turn to your Tillicum
and somewhere inside you will find the
answer. It is your guide, for your benefit, consult it often and you will very
seldom go wrong.

of seclusion and retirement: being part
of a great community, it naturally shares
that community's struggle for existence.

In the coming session, such changes
as I have mentioned will be accelerated
and intensified. This will make it still
more difficult to balance student instructional needs and professorial duties over
against the nation's urgent requirements
for the time and energy of both -groups.
Students have been quick to see that
in this world-embracing conflict the nation's interests are paramount and that
the interests of institutions and individuals must be secondary. The coming
months will bring to you many a duty,
of which not the least will be the
evaluation and choice of duties themselves.   That  decisions of this  kind are

A.M.S. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
On behalf of the Alma Mater Society
I welcome you to your new membership in the Society and to the University
of British. Columbia.
In coming to the university you should
have only one object in view, to train
yourselves as quickly and efficiently as
possible, in order to serve your country
to the fullest extent. You will find that
your only problem is to apply yourselves
conscientiously to your studies. Yout
work is laid out; assistance is available
for the asking; you should need no urging to play your part.
If you have the idea that the university is for play, you have the wrong
conception. The university's purpose is
to pi^epare you for your place in the
world. Study hard but do not neglect
extra-curricular activities from which
you will derive muck pleasure and relaxation. Make the most of every minute of your time.
Remember that a university education
is no guarantee of success. It will give
you a foundation, which with endeavor,
will allow you to advance quickly.
If you follow these suggestions you
need not worry about keeping the traditions of our university alive: for they
will not only remain alive but will grow
and remain as a challenge to the students that follow you.
Tuum Est — "It's up to you."

FRESHMAN INITIATION
HEADQUARTERS
An information bureau for the purpose of helping and advising the freshman class in all student matter may be
found in the lobby of the Auditorium
during the first four days after the open- ,
ing of Varsity.
This year the bureau is under the supervision of the following:
Faculty Representative
Professor W. H. Gage
President of the Women's Undergraduate Society   Mary Mulvin
President of the Men's Undergraduate   Society  John Carson
RULES  AND   HINTS  FOR  FRESHIES
1. No freshmen and freshettes may be
seen together during the initiation period. This law will give the slow seniors
a chance.
2. No frosh  are  allowed to walk  on
the  grass.    (Don't  let  them  kid   you— I
neither can anyone else.)
3. All frosh must doff their hats to
upperclassmen.
4. All frosh must relinquish their seats
in the library and caf to upperclassmen.
5. The Arts Letter Rack is there for
your convenience: you will find it handy  ,
for campus contacts.
6 Talk over your problems with your
Dean. First year women are urged to
consult Dean Mawdsley on all their Varsity problems. The Alma Mater President may be consulted by arranging for
an appointment in his office in the Brock
Building.
7. Carry a copy of the Tillicum all the
time. Read it right through; you need
the information it contains.
S.   Attend all Alma Mater Meetings.
9.   Learn the U. B. C. songs and yells.
10. Use the freshman information bureau   It's there to help you.
11. Watch notice boards and the "Ubyssey" for notices of clubs in -which you
are interested.
12. Put all your spare time into some
activity; Varsity will mean ten times
more. Attend as many University affairs
as you can.
13. Do your work every day. Keeping
up is easier than catching up.
14. Remember: this is your University.
First loyalty comes to it and its activities. 12

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

STUDENTS' COUNCIL
The Students' Council is the governing body, its nine members being elected
late in the spring term. This body meets
every Tuesday 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 Womens 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 submits
a budget to Council early in the fall
term. Budgets are then allotted lv the
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 are held each year, one in
.the first two weeks of the fall term and
one during the last week in March. 16
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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.

UNDERGRADUATE SOCIETIES
There exist also three smaller men's
undergraduate societies, one for each
faculty: the Arts Men's Undergraduate
Society, the Engineers' Undergraduate
Society, and the Agriculture Men's
Undergraduate Society.
The Nurses' Undergraduate Society is
under the jurisdiction of the Women's
Undergraduate Society.
Formerly mainly social in function, in
wartime these societies play an active
part in raising money for the Red Cross
and other patriotic funds.

Society, are examples of the way these
Societies worked last year to aid the
war effort. This year an even more intensive program is expected.
The Presidents of these five Undergraduate Societies are members of a
standing committee on discipline. (Article XII.   Code of A.M.S.)

her familiar with 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. Functions
sponsored by the W. U. S. for welcoming
freshettes are: the Freshette Supper, and
Senior-Freshette tea, to which newcomers are escorted by their "Big Sisters",

PUBLICATIONS BOARD
Three publications come out of the
"Pub" each year, The Ubyssey, The Tillicum and The Directory.
The Ubyssey is the official campus
newspaper, issued every Tuesday and
Friday. It began publication as a monthly
in 1916 and now is entering its thirteenth
year as a bi-weekly journal. Managed
entirely by students, who define its policy regarding current college events, it
welcomes new students to try for staff
positions in trials held at the first of the
term. The Publications Board is affiliated with the Canadian University
Press, and features exchange news from
colleges in both Canada and the United
States. UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
The Tillicum is that imposing little
booklet which no doubt you are at present reading with intense interest. It was
formerly called the Handbook and is
published expressly for you freshmen
and freshettes.
The Directory, containing
and phone numbers of all registered students, is a "must" for everyone, although
it was compiled mainly to aid the men
of the campus in tracking down glamour
girls. HER address and phone number
will be there, provided they were handed in on time.

Athletics 26
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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.
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.
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 instructor's offices are located in the Gymnasium Building where students may obtain schedules of classes.
Inter-Class Athletics
The Governor's Cup donated for Men's
Inter-Class Athletics is competed for by
all the classes in almost all sports. The
main events are the Arts '20 relay held 28
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
in spring and the Arts '30 Inter-Faculty
Road Race held on the campus in the
fall term.
Corresponding to the Governor's Cup
in Women's Athletics is the Spencer Cup.
Competitions are held in basketball,
swimming, track and hockey.
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 outside competition which
had to be curtailed because of the military training program.

UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
MEN'S SPORTS—1942-43
Because of the extensive military training schedule in effect at UJB.C. during
wartime, several of the major sports of
former years are being temporarily discontinued, at least as far as playing in
outside competition is concerned. Among
these sports are included Canadian Football, English Rugby, Grass Hockey,
Cricket, Soccer and any others which require Saturday afternoons for their
games.
However, it is hoped that these sports
will be revived to the standards they
held in former years when the time
comes for Varsity men to turn their attentions from war to pleasanter things.
BASKETBALL
This is now the
major sport on
the campus, both
men and women
entering teams in
league play.
"Sho - you -
wha" says. "C'm-
on, kids, get out
and try for a
place on one of
the five squads."
The TILLICUM
51
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 several outstanding
freshmen from last year now graduated
to sophs, together with veterans and you
new recruits it looks as if this may be
the season we will again win the provincial championship.
Men's Senior B:—Here's the team for
those players who can't find a place on
the A squad, and are in second, third or
fourth years. This season you will have
to step to keep up the record of last
year's Bees.
Men's Intermediate A (Frosh):—This
is the gang made up entirely of freshmen. They enter the Inter A Community League and make frequent trips to
outside towns for exhibition games.
Women's Senior B:—These gals play in
the city league and journey up the valley for exhibition games. 52

FRATERNITIES
Fraternities and sororities are groups
of students, with common ideals- and ae
Uking. f<w one another, organized into
secret societies of from fifteen.'to fifty
members^ "Rushing', the systenp. whereby these organizations contact projective
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 theirt. At fhe 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 oft th&^r«rious fraternities. It is extremely important to
him, if he joins a fraternity at all, to

am sithilar to his own. Otherwise fraternity Ufe wiQ be a total ffccitate. The
prospect often finds it very difficult to
make op his mind particularly if a number at fraternities are rudtingf him. If
he is1 not very enthusiastic atocWt fhe
ones that are rushing him h* will be
tduch' 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 thoroughty investigate .the fraternity question before joining; Information regarding financial obligations inyolved—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 be owes
first loyalty to his University and its
activities.

BROCK MEMORIAL BUILDING
Dignified and resplendent fa its t>t>tan»
ical setting on the East MaH,"the "Brock
Memorial Building stands today as a
fitting memorial to fhe Saves and woA
of the late Dean ot Applied Science and
his wife, killed -in a tragic aeroplane
crash in the summer «f 3835,
So hijji was this couple held in the
esteem of students of their day that th^y
determined to erect a Student Union
Building ,to permanently commemorate
the Dean and his helpmate. On January
3L 1940, those students' dream was realized when Ijeut. Governor E. W. Ham-
ber officially opened the new structure,
third on the campus to be built from
student funds.
The first important campaign for
money was launched in Ae spring of
1936 under the leadership of AJMS.
President Bernard Ihynelsai. The aim
was 930,000 and Brynelsen hoped to see
the building completed in the fall. However, the session closed wifh the fund
standing at less Shan $7,500 and the next
two years saw student campaigners under Presidents Jay Gould and David Carey
turn their efforts from the Union Building to fhe Stadium. The result was the
opening of the Student Stadium in October, 1997.
In 1938 the dormant Brock Memorial
issue -received a new lease on life and
The TILLICUM
97
the campaign began in earnest. With fhe
promise of $2,500 in ten annual installments from the government of British
Columbia and the sum of $30,000 already
collected and in the hands oi the Brock
Memorial Trustees, the A.M.S. 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
Student Union Building.
Throughout the summer of 1939 Past-
President Carson McGuire and Presidentelect John Pearson perf ected plans which
were approved by the Brock Memorial
Committee. Construction work started
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 to those
of the rest of our beautiful campus.
The first section of the cultural and
social centre dedicated to the memories
of Dean and Mrs. Brock was finished.
It was built at a cost of $75,000 and is but
a part of fhe intended final Union Building, constructed in such a way as to
allow enlargement.
Rooms in the Brock Memorial Building
In the centre of the building is the
Main Lounge, which is open to all stu- 98

dents at all times. Behind this room is
the Tea Room, where1 lunch is served at
a standard price of 35c and afternoon
tea at 25c. On the same 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 reserved for women students.
On the southern side of the building
are the offices of the Alma Mater Society, the headquarters of the Students'
Council. Here, in addition to the general office, are the offices of the President of the AJd.S. and the Treasurer
of the Students' Council. There is a club
telephone in the corridor, and in the

Upstairs on the southern side are two
small meeting rooms for men's and
women's clubs, and there is also one
large general meeting room, capable of
seating 200 people.
Clubs may obtain permission to use the
meeting rooms by applying at the Alma
Mater Society office.
The Students' Council meeting room
is upstairs on the south side. The Rehearsal Room on the northern side is
for the use of the Players' Club and the
Musical Society when they are preparing
their   forthcoming   productions.    Beside

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! 150

ALMA MATER
Alma Mater, guardian of our youth,
Fair is the laurel wreath that crowns
thy brow,
Friend of our country and the friend of
truth
Thy children hail thee now.
Alma Mater, daughter of the years,
The great of other days are with thee
yet;
Speak thou their high faith in our
duller ears,
Forbid us to forget.
Alma Mater, watcher of the hours,
Thou lookest on the mountains and
the sea,
And rulest in the might of other
powers
In loftier majesty.
Alma Mater, feeder of the flame,
High hopes and noble purposes are
thine—
On us, whose pulses quicken at the
. name,
Grant  that the light may shine.
Alma Mater, mother of our love,
Many the paths we tread in future
days—
Yet naught that time shall bring can
e'er remove
Thy memory or thy praise.
—H. T. J. Coleman.

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.
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. 152

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-Hallelu-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 if 11 rain
very hard.
Go to hell sir, Go to Hell sir,
Go to Hell with your damned old leaky
old scow,
For  it   ain't   going  to  rain  very  hard
anyhow.
That's a lie sirs, that's a lie sins,
O it's all very well, but ain't no sell
And  you'll  damn  soon  tell  ifs  gonna
rain like HelL
