EDITOR'S NOTE
KLA-HOW-YA TILLICUMS!
To you, freshmen and freshettes of
1941-42, this booklet is dedicated. We
hope that you will find it a trusty guide,
informing you of the many activities at
your disposal and of the regulations and
traditions established by those who have
gone before.
We hope also that you will carry on
those traditions; that, in spite of the
time and effort you must in these times
devote to war work, you will participate
in extra-curricular activities as far as
possible. Like those in all other Canadian Universities, students on our campus, in an earnest effort to do their part,
have curtailed their activities considerably "for the duration."
At the same time, by resolving to support your campus clubs, athletics, and
social functions as far as the demands
of war allow, you will not only be helping to carry on U.B.C. tradition, but you
will also be getting the most out of university life.

FOREWORD
to
THE TILLICUM 1941 - '42
Once more 1 have the pleasure to extend  to  the  students  of all   years  and
THE   TILLICUM
Faculties T cordial welcome to the University of British Columbia, and to express to the Editors of the "Tillieuro"
my sincere hope that this little handbook may, as in former years, prove to
be a useful and handy guide to student
activities.
Feio things are a >.t>tta- indication of
students' general intelligence and j/ the
mental training which they have assimilated than a wise and happy participation in extra-curricu'ur activities.
Some of these will prove a valuable
supplement to studies, others an equally
valuable relaxation.
In these stern days, when all we hold
dear is fighting for its existence, it is
my earnest hope that each student, when
he is deciding upon such an activity and
also later, when he is a member of this
or that campus group, will keep asking
himself this question: "What can I do
that will best maintain and best extend
the University's tradition of service to
the community?" There is nothing priggish in such a question: it is the frank
recognition of a serious obligation. And
in view of what our graduates have
already done, I have no fears that the
question toili pass unanswered.

W.   EDWARD  McBRIDE
President   of   the   Alma   Mater   Society
A. M. S. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
It is indeed a pleasure and a privilege
to extend to you on behalf of the Alma
Mater  Society  a most  hearty  welcome
to this Campus.
You are attending University at a time
THE  TILLICUM
when others are making sacrifices of an
extreme nature for their country. However, there is a job to be done right here
and if you do it well you will be serving
your country in a worthwhile capacity.
Universities are called upon for much
of the leadership of a country. Your job
is to prepare yourself for a position of
leadership.
You are very privileged to be able
attend a college such as The University
of British Columbia, for its history is
steeped in examples of student effort.
The students of this University have built
the Gymnasium, the Stadium and the
Brocfc Memorial Building through their
own effort. Few if any colleges on this
continent can equal that record. You
can see then the obligations which are
yours.
In order to receive the fullest benefit
from your University career I would advise a well rounded program. Neither
academics alone nor an over abundance
of extra-curricular activities make a successful college experience. Trite as the
saying may be, it is nevertheless true
that you will only get from your University experience, benefits in proportion to the effort you give.
The motto of the University of British
Columbia stands as your challenge, for
the opportunities are here.
TUUM EST — "Ifs up to you."
W. EDWARD McBRIDE 10
UNIVERSITY OF  B. C.
FRESHMAN INITIATION
HEADQUARTERS
An information bureau for the our-
pose 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 opening 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   Lois Nicholson
President of the Men's Under
graduate Society   Charles Nash
RULES   AND   HINTS  FOR   FRESHES
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—
neither can anyone else.)
3. All frosh must doff their hats to
upperclassmen.
4. All frosh must relinquish their seats
in the library and cafe to upperclassmen.
5. The Arts Letter Rack is there for
your convenience: you will find it handy
for campus contacts.
THE   TILLICUM
11
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.
8. Attend all Alma Mater Meetings.
9. Learn the U. B. C. songs and yells.
10. Use the freshman information bur,
eau.  It's there to help you.
11. Watch notice boards and the "Uby-
ssey" for notices of clubs in which you
are interested.
12. Put all your spare interest 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
UNIVERSITY  OF B. C.
STATUTE OF PROHIBITION
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;
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED AND
ENACTED as follows:—
1. All forms of initiation or clash of
students which in any way are or
tend to become injurious to any person or property, committed by any
student anywhere or by any person
upon the property under the control
of the University, are hereby absolutely prohibited.

STUDENTS COUNCIL
The Students' Council is the governing body, its nine members being elected
late in the spring term. This body meets
every Monday night during the term to
discuss all motions for student welfare.
The presidents of the Men's and Women's
Undergraduate Societies, the presidents
of the Men's and Women's Athletic Associations and the president of the Literary and Scientific Executive represent
definite bodies of student opinion. These
members bring up matters relative to
their own subsidiaries but are expected
to know and discuss matters outside their
own spheres.
Each of the subsidiary clubs submits
a budget to Council early in the fall
term. Budgets are then allotted by 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.
THE   TILLICUM
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 SOCITIES
There exist also three smaller men's
undergraduate societies, one for each
faculty: the Arts Men's Undergraduate
Society, the Science Men's 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.
Self-Denial Days organized by W. U. S.
and a War Savings Stamps mixer, brainchild of the Arts Men's Undergraduate
THE   TILLICUM
19
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 XH. Code of A.M.S.)
MEN'S UNDERGRADUATE SOCIETY
Headed this year by President Charles
Nash (left) the M. U. S. executive also
comprises a Secretary,
Treasurer, and Presidents of the Arts,
Science and Agriculture Men's Undergraduate Societies.

Sister" who is responsible for making
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",
and Out-of-Town women's class teas.

PUBLICATIONS BOARD
Four publications come out of the
"Pub" each year, The Ubyssey, The Totem, 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 twelfth
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
Fress. and features exchange news from
colleges in both Canada and the United
States.
The Totem is the university annual and
is   published   by  a   special  staff.    Each 24
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
year this book has been growing in both
size and quality. It is primarily a picture book.
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 addresses
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
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 Gertude 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 instructors' 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 Art's '20 relay held 28
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
in spring and the Art's '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—1941-42
Because of the extensive military training schedule in effect at U.B.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.
Because of military restrictions, the
Canadian Football schedule last year was
curtailed to four games. The team entered the Inter-City League against Victoria and Vancouver and played a home
and home Series with each.
Last year, for the first time in years,
the English Rugger team went through
a season without winning a single game.
Owing to the military situation on the
campus, the team entered only the Mc-
Kechnie Cup series against Victoria and
Vancouver Reps, so that there were only
four games throughout the year.
Soccer has been a major campus sport
for the last two years. It has one of
the longest seasons, since league play be-
THE   TILLICUM
gins in October and does not end until
the middle of April.
Cricket is a comparatively new campus
sport,  which has proved popular.
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."
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 52
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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.
BADMINTON
This year's Badminton Club should be
better than ever due to the fine standing
both mixed teams held in last year's 'B°
and 'D' leagues of the Vancouver and
District Badminton Association. Fees are
$4 a term and practices are held twice
weekly in the gymnasium. The sport is
open to both men and women.
BOXING AND WRESTLING
The boxing and wrestling club has been
combined with the regular physical edu-
THE   TILLICUM
53
cation curriculum under the physical
director. New equipment has been acquired and this branch of sport expects
to have a successful year.
GOLF
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. A match with the University of Washington is generally held
as well as a tour of southern colleges.
Fifty cent membership cards enable a
student to obtain a cheaper rate on the
course.
GYM CLASSES
Organized for all students but especially those not taking active part in any
other form of athletics, gym and tumbling classes are held for both men and
women. Students may enroll or obtain
details of the classes in the Physical
Director's offices, Gym Building.
WOMEN'S GRASS HOCKEY
The grass hockey club is affiliated
with the Lower Mainland Ladies' Grass
Hockey League. Games are played with
Ex-high teams in the city. A Varsity
rep. team meets a high school rep. team
annually. One practice a week is held
and games are played on Saturday after- 54
UNIVERSITY  OF  B. C.
noons. Last year's team finished the
schedule in fourth place in the seven
team Lower Mainland League,
ARCHERY
The past season proved to be one of
the most successful since archery was
first introduced to the campus. More
than 200 girls turned out regularly, and,
in a meet with a Western Washington
team, the Varsity girls won with little
difficulty.
ICE HOCKEY
The ice hockey club plays games with
the University of Washington and hopes
to enter a local league. A membership
fee of ?1.00 is charged.
OUTDOOR CLUB
This club holds hikes nearly every
week of the fall term and skis at its
cabins on Grouse Mountain during the
spring term. A triangular meet with
University of Washington and College
of Puget Sound as well as trips to Washington are outstanding events of the year.
SWIMMING
The swimming club for both men and
women engages a tank two or three
nights a week. Competition is carried
on with prominent Vancouver clubs and
the University of Washington. An inter-
class meet is also held.
THE   TILLICUM

Race, Arts '20 Race and a meet with
Washington' colleges.

by  the University Health Committee.
Discovery of Infectious Persons
All cases of illness, including a common cold, developed during the academ

the actual termination of such infective-
ness.
All University contacts of infectives
are to report to the Health Office for determination of susceptibility, and are to
be excluded while there is a possibility
of developing the infection.
In order to minimize loss of attendance,
contacts may arrange daily inspection at
the Health Office during the period of
potential infectiveness. Failure to report
will result in immediate expulsion from
the University.
Students are advised to avoid large
gatherings and late hours during an epidemic, such as the "flu" epidemic of
last year, since the number of cases increased significantly after well-attended
dances.

SOCIAL CALENDAR
Freshette Supper—During the initiation
period, freshettes are entertained at a
supper. This function generally takes
the form of a children's party to which
the freshettes are escorted by their "big
sisters".
Frosh Smoker—An evening with pipes,
tobacco, cider and masculine entertainment welcomes the Freshmen during the
initiation period.
Frosh Reception—A dance is given a-
bout the end of the first week in the
fall term in honor of the incoming students. The freshmen are expected to
mingle with members of the upper classes. Introductions are not necessary. One
ticket only is allowed each undergraduate. During the evening the freshmen
are formally received as members of the
student body and until this ceremony the
green insignia must be worn.
Home-coming—The Annual Homecoming week-end is celebrated early in
October. It is intended to bring the
Alumni in closer contact with the students and includes various entertainments in honor of the graduates.
Christmas and Spring Plays—Late in
the fall term the Players' Club presents
four plays  (including the student prize 90
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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.
Hi-Jinx—On the second Thursday in
January, Women's Undergraduate Society arranges a fancy dress party for women students only. A small admission
fee is charged. Athough it was announced that any male student attending this
dance in disguise does so at the risk of
his personal safety, one brave Ubyssey
reporter covered the affair last year to
get a "scoop" which appeared in almost
every University paper in Canada. Except for slight damage to his wearing
apparell, he came out unscathed.
Class Parties—Each class of each faculty is allowed to hold one class party
during the year. Only members of the
class holding the dance are admitted.
Class fees pay for these dances.
Last year, owing to the need for curtailing expenses in war-time, the class
parties of the first two years were combined. The same plan will no doubt be
adopted this year.
Undergraduate Balls—Each faculty is
allowed to give one general dance during
the year. Of late the supply of tickets
for these balls has been limited.
The TILLICUM
91
Musical Society Cc.ncert—Each Spring
the Musical Society gives a concert in
the Auditorium to which the public is
invited. Several light operas have been
staged.   An admission fee is charged.
Co-ed Ball—On February 29th or on
the first Thursday in March.
Mixers—Last year the Arts Men's Undergraduate Society inaugurated a series
of highly successful mixers, held fortnightly in Brock Hall. With music by
Sid Poulton's Varsity Dance Orchestra,
these informal affairs succeeded in sending $125.25 of War Savings Stamps to
Ottawa, and in providing a radio for
Brock Hall, as well as fulfilling their original purpose of instilling a "faculty
spirit" into the Arts men and women.
I: is expected that Mixers this year will
equal those of last year in popularity,
as the price will no doubt remain at
only 25 cents a person. 92

FRATERNITIES
Fraternities and sororities are groups
of tudents with common ideals and a
lik'ng for one another, organized into
secret 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
The TILLICUM
93
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.
SORORITIES
The Panhellenic Constitution revised in
1938-39 presents a democratic system by
which sophomore women apply for membership and the sorority may contact
their 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 altogether. The plan
was passed by seven  out of  the eight 94
UNIVERSITY  OF B. C.
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.

BROCK MEMORIAL BUILDING
Dignified and resplendent in its botanical setting on the East Mall, the Brock
Memorial Building 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 aeroplane'
crash in the summer of 1935.
So high was this couple held in the
esteem of students of their day that they
determined to erect a Student Union
Building to permanently commemorate
the Dean and his helpmate. On January
31, 1940, those students' dream was realized when Lieut. 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 the spring of
1936 under the leadership of A.M.S.
President Bernard Brynelsen. The aim
was $30,000 and Brynelsen hoped to see
the building completed in the fall. However, the session closed with the fund
standing at less than $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 the Stadium. The result was
the opening of the Student Stadium in
October, 1937.
In 1938 the dormant Brock Memorial
issue received a new lease on life and
The TILLICUM
97
the campaign began in earnest With the
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 of 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 perfected 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 the 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, where 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 A.M.S. and the Treasurer
of the Students' Council There is a club
telephone in the corridor, and in the
south east corner of the building is a
Men's Executive Meeting Room.
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
The TILLICUM
99
the Rehearsal Room is the Phrateres
Club Room.
In the basement on the northern side
of Brock Hall are the offices of the Book
Exchange 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 Mamooks
club room and the Photography room,
where members of the Freshman Class
will go to have their pictures taken for

The Canadian Jubilee Memorial Windows are situated at the western end of
the main concourse in the Library. Presented to the University by an unknown
donor the windows were unveiled on
November 28, 1928, by the Hon. S. F.
Tolmie, then Premier of British Columbia.
Inside the main doorway of the Science
Building are two war memorials—one to
commemorate the supreme sacrifices and
willing services of the members of the
" 'D Co'y. 196th Battalion, C. E. F., Western Universities, in the Great War, 1914-
18;" and the other in honor of the B.
C. reinforcing platoon, "196th Western
Universities Overseas Battalion, C. E. F."
The Sun Dial, with its oblong face and
engravings of the Cairn and the Lions, 100
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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
the most complete representative Polynesian collection of curio relics in the
world. It was collected by Dr. Frank
Burnett, who during a period of 35 years,
sailed around the cannibal islands in the
South Pacific. Bill Tansley superintends
this museum.
The University Stamp Collection comprises the, postage stamps of Canada and
the early British Norm American colonies. It contains many stamps dating
from the time of Queen Victoria until
the present day. This collection is not
yet complete and all new contributions
will be welcomed. Those interested may
have access to the collection through
the registrar.
The beautiful memorial Japanese Lantern and Garden situated near the botanical gardens were presented by the
friends of Inazo Nitobe to the University.
On August 29, 1935, the University made
formal acceptance of this memorial to a
great student and an apostle of international goodwill.'
The Totem Poles, now situated in the
Botanical   Gardens,   were   presented   in
The TILLICUM
101
1927 by the Alumni Association. They
are from the Musquiam Reserve, Point
Grey and are the last two of the tribe.
The pole on the right is the Capilano
Pole, a carving of the famous Capilano
Chief; on the left is the Tsem-Lano Pole,
symbolic of the magical powers of Tsem-
Lano, a great Musquiam warrior.
A series of Paintings by John Innes
which hang in the Library, represent
early scenes in the history of British
Columbia.
The Geology Museum is located in the
southern wing of the Applied Science
Building. It contains valuable and interesting material illustrative of both'
physical and historical geology and new
additions are constantly being made.
The Cairn was first set up as a memorial of the province-wide campaign in
1922, when a group of enthusiastic students marched from Fairview to Point
Grey in an endeavour to have the university site moved from the Fairview
shacks.
The Cairn service for Freshmen which
was inaugurated in 1928 has become a
tradition at the University.
Through the efforts of Mr. John Rid-
ington, former University Librarian, an
extensive art collection composed of 185
volumes, 200 reproductions and 40 large
pictures especially framed, was donated
to the University by the Carnegie Corp- 102
UNIVERSITY  OF B. C.
oration in New York. This collection has
been installed in the Art Room of the
library.
Another gift of the Carnegie Corporation to the University is the Library of
Congress Catalogue, situated in the main
lobby of the Library. This Catalogue,
a collection of more than 1,500,000 printed cards, is valued at $65,000. There are
only two others in Canada.
In the spring of 1938, the University
received an unique gift in the form of a
valuable collection of animal heads, now
mounted in Room 100, Applied Science
Building. The heads are exceedingly
fine specimens of big game to be found
in the wilds of B. C, and were collected
and presented to the University by a
local man, Mr. G. L. Pop, world-famed
big game hunter.
A long needed addition to the University is the Stadium, on the playing field,
built during the summer months. The
main section of concrete, seating 1,600
persons, is completely up-to-date, containing showers, chafing rooms, handball courts and offices. It was constructed with the idea of being a central unit
of a modern stadium. Two wooden
bleachers each seat 500. The total, costing $40,000, was financed by a bond issue.

Women's
War Work 106
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
WOMEN'S WAR WORK
Along with women students in other
Canadian Universities, girls at U.B.C. are
playing their part in defense and preparedness programs.
Early last fall rooms were set aside
in Brock Hall for Red Cross work, carried on under the supervision of Dr.
Joyce Hallamore. Here the girls spent
their leisure hours knitting socks,
scarves, and body belts, hemming sheets,
and doing every sort of work for which
facilities were provided.
Unfortunately, our university has no
facilities for instruction in ambulance
driving or in canteen work, such
as are provided, for example, at the
University of Manitoba. However, a first
aid course under the direction of Miss
Kerr, given last spring, provided valuable instruction for the girls, especially
for those who did not care to do sewing
and knitting. It is expected that the
course, which involved an outlay of
only two dollars a student (to cover
cost of the first aid manual), will be continued this year.
At the time of writing, the exact
form which women's war work on the
campus will take this year is still indefinite, but women students intend to
see that last year's standard is improved
upon as far as possible.

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. J. Coleman
Music—D. O. Durkin, Arts '40
ENGLISH RUGBY TEAM'S SONG
Hail! Hail! the gang's all here,
What the hell do we care,
What the hell do we	
We are the Rugby Club, stand all in
line,
We're going to win our game another
time,
We're going to yell, yell, yell, yell,
like hell.
For the University we'll yell like hell,
We're going to fight, fight,fight for
every yard,
We'll beat Victoria Rep so very hard
That there'll be fifteen  corpses on the
sod,
With a Rah! Rah! Rah! 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)
HaUelu-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 it'll 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 sirs,
O it's all very well, but ain't no sell
And  you'll  damn  soon  tell  it's  gonna
rain like Hell.
