TO THE FROSH:
Here is a report to awe the seniors. Advance
agents predict that this Freshman class will be
the largest ever, which makes this week a special
historical event.
You will be getting plenty of sterling advice
from the experts, and it is not our intention
No caution will be made that you concentrate on
to add to this output. No formula will be given
here for making friends and influencing parents,
studies, but don't neglect the extra-curricular
end. It won't even be suggested that you join a
club.
No. In keeping with the purpose of this publication, this editorial section will pass along a
piece of information. -
This is the twenty-sixth anniversary of the
Student Trek to Point Grey, which was the
beginnings of the university as we know it. Since
its place as Canada's second-largest, although
then UBC has sprouted rapidly until it has taken
youngest, university.
Today, in a student way, we have a highly
refined form of government that has a cabinet
and a house of representatives, and a large student
budget to spend. We have fine old traditions, like
the Mock Parliament, Frosh Week, and the
Homecoming Ball. Our subsidized free press,
directed entirely by the students, and our student
political   clubs,    and   our   student   broadcasting
EDITOR'S MESSAGE 3
studios   are   innovations   that   continually   amaze
visitors from other campuses.
All this would suggest the strides of progress
that UBC has made since the earlier, stormy
founding days. You too can help in this process
by means of that cornily-labelled but vital thing
called "campus spirit."
It just means doing your duty, like voting
discriminately during student elections, and
loyalty. Loyalty first to your university and
secondly to your Frosh class. As the "biggest yet"
Frosh class, you can make an important contribution in this way.

UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS MESSAGE      5
MESSAGE  FROM  UBC'S PRESIDENT
September, 1948
TO THE FRESHMEN:
It  gives me  a  particular  pleasure  to  welcome
each succeeding class of young men and women
to  the  University.  Though  education  throughout '
life is a continuous — and should be an enjoyable-
process,  the  freshman  year  at  University has,  I
think,   a   special   importance   in   the   individual's
educational  development.    First,  it  is a  year  of
selection,  based  in  large  measure  on  your  own
individual  judgment.   You   are   in   a   position   to
select a programme of studies which will develop
your own particular aptitudes and lead to particular vocations and you are also in a position to
choose from a very wide variety of extra-curricular activities in  which you will wish  to engage
for your own self-fulfillment and satisfaction.
Some measure of sampling of what the University has to offer is desirable, too much mere
sampling can be harmful.
For this reason it seems to me desirable that
you should from the beginnning of your first
year try to be very conscious of the proportion
of your time which you are devoting to your
primary reasons for coming to University as
compared with the time which you feel you can
afford to secondary pleasures or satisfactions.
The ability and determination to put and keep
first things first is, I think, basic to all real educational  development.
You are now a member of the University — an
adult society, a community of scholars and students.    May you prosper in it.
NORMAN A. M. MacKenzie, President The TILLICUM Handbook
DAVID BROUSSON
President  of  the  Alma  Mater  Society
AMS PRESIDENTS MESSAGE 7
TO THE FRESHMAN CLASS OF 1948:
The Alma Mater Society of the University of
British Columbia bids you welcome.
We hope that your university career will bring
you both profit and enjoyment, and that everyone
of you will graduate in the Class of '52 or '53.
In your years at UE'C you will find that there
■ are four phases to university life: Academic,
Extra-Curricular, Athletic and Social. I would
remind you that to take full advantage of the
wonderful opportunities before you, you must
participate in all four, fitting each one into a
balanced timetable that will give you the most
rewards now and leave many happy memories
as the years go by.
This year the Alma Mater Society, of which
you will be hearing much in the next few months.
During the past four years UB'C has been through
a tremendous expansion. Each registration brought
an increasing enrolment, and with it increased
student finances which were used for many needed
capital expenditures. But now we are past the
peak, and while costs continue to rise, our funds
are decreasing. Your Students' Council is acutely
aware of this problem, and will make every
effort to keep the Society in sound financial condition by necessary economies. We ask your
support  in  these measures.
In the next few weeks you will be learning a
great deal about our University, its campus, its
organization, its history. I would like to remind
jou of the great event of our history — the Great
Trek of 1923. In that year was born the spirit
and tradition that are becoming associated with
the University of British Columbia, not only
' across our own country, but to the south as well. 8 The TILLICUM Handbook
Remember that you, as the new generation of
students, must carry on spirit and tradition
implied by the words "TUUM EST."
The Students' Council wishes you the very best
in all your fields of endeavour at the University.
May this year and the rest be successful and
happy ones.
Sincerely,
DAVID  BROUSSON,  President
DAVID BROUSSON ... A PROFILE
Before arriving at UBC, student president Dave
Brousson   was,   variously,   a   student   at   College
and  Normal School in Victoria,  a school-teacher
• in  the Peace River  Block,  and  a Lieutenant  in
the Royal Canadian Army.
Since he came to the campus in 1945, Dave
has engaged furiously in a hydro-headed schedule o. activities that included important work
with the Canadian Legion, Engineering Undergraduate Society, Memorial Gym Planning Committee and Undergraduate Societies Committee.
At the sametime he was enrolled in the difficult
Electrical Engineering course.
But besides student duties, Dave leads a full
private life. At home, Dave is a husband, and the
father to two children. As a business man, Dave
has operated a canteen at Acadia Camp since
1946, and is also a partner in U-Wash, a self-
service laundry here.
Born at Creston, B.C., and reared in Victoria,
Dave is in Fourth Year Applied Science. He
plans to enter the sales and business end of
engineering.

Social   Coordinator       John   Turner
Like all "cities," UBC, the province's eighth
largest "town'' (according to population) has a.
"municipal"   council.
It's function is, to quote the Alma Mater
Society constitution, to 'promote, direct and control all student activities."
Every Monday night is C night on the campus; .
the Student Councillors get together in true
legislative fashion, and lose sleep haranguing each
_ other until the early morning hours. As a result,
Council members can usually be distinguished
by their half-open, pink-rimmed eyes.
STUDENTS'  COUNCIL
11
Until 1946, the popular nickname for the tired-
looking student executive was the Dirty Nine.
This institution became obsolete when rapid
growth of the student body, vitaminized by
iuture veteran enrolment, was foreseen.
A group, the Student Government Revision
Committee, headed by Jim Wilson of Commerce
'46, realized that with the extra administrative
burden, the Council were in danger of becoming
even more 'atigued. To offset this danger, two
new Council officers were created, not only to
relieve the existing nine councillors of a portion
Oi their duties but also to ensure greater repre-
sentaticn of the student public. The report was
ratified and became law in 1946, and the present
Dirty   Eleven   was   born.
Though each university club's budget is apporved
or determined by the Council treasurer early in
the fall of each year, the club's executive and
programs are of its own choosing.
Constitutionally the entire student body as the
Alma Mater Society meets twice an academic year.
Matters of special importance are discussed from
the floor to enable Council members to ascertain
the wishes of the majority.
Formerly represented on Council, the Publications Board is now a semi-independent body.
Its Editor-in-Chief, Ron Haggart holds an "A"
office and an ex-officio position on Council. 12 The TILLICUM Handbook
SECRETARY . . .
Nancy Davidson
When very young, hazel-eyed Nancy, accompanied by her parents, moved from her birth-place
in Brandon, Manitoba to Vancouver. Almost
immediately she began racking up a formidable
number   of  achievements.
From editing class annuals in both junior
and senior high schools, not to mention taking
part in dramatics and being one of the top "brass"
in girls Air Force Cadet Corps, she gr*luated to
UBC. A member of the Letters Club and president
of honorary Delta Sigma Pi.

Paul Plant
Since high school days, Paul has dexteriously
combined muscles and business sense to a marked
degree. He has been equally active, in athletics
and student affairs.
In recognition of this double ability, at Magee
High School in his graduating year, he was
given a big block athletic award, and elected
student treasurer. Last year at UBC, Paul continued to employ his two-fold talent by managing
the junior basketball team and serving as treasurer  of  the  Men's  Athletic Directorate. 14 The TILLICUM Handbook

This year, Dave will experiment in the realm
of possibilities. He is going to see if it is possible
to graduate in a stiff Law course and still serve
on Council in his double capacity of chairman
of USC, the Students' "democratic voice," and
as head of the Discipline Committee.
Another married Councillor, Dave and his wife
have set up housekeeping in Victoria. Dave enrolled at UBC in 1941, interrupted his studies
with a two-year stint in the Army. He has been,

Softball, volleyball, and grass hockey.
She continued to play grass hockey at UBC,
but with such fury that a Big Block was the
logical result. Her second .Big Block was for
basketball, and since the number of awards is
unlimited, Jackie may add yet another to her
sweater. 18 The TILLICUM Handbook

U.C or the Undergraduate Societies Committee,
is the one body on the campus which brings
directly together representatives from all undergraduate Societies, as well as one or two graduate groups,  whose  members pay AMS fees.
USC is directly concerned with the well-being
of every student, and hears his particular problems through that student's particular undergraduate society.
USC Chairman Dave Williams, in addition to
those duties, also sits on Council, and brings to
this body the views of the undergraduate groups
whom he represents. Jobs falling to the lot of
USC to execute include the work of the Discipline and Judicial Committees, whose duty it
is to enforce the code of the AMS, and the work
o   looking after the AMS elections.
To date, the three-year-old USC, romper-
clad infant of the student administrative system,
has not played as important a role in campus
affairs as its founder envisioned. It was suffering
from "growing pains." As a result, aside from
a few specific jobs, USC has had very little responsible power.
It will be the job of this year's USC, under the
pilotship of chairman Williams, and with the
help of every undergraduate student, to make
the organization  stronger. 24

PUBLICATIONS
Mouthpiece of the student body in all phases
of activity is the function of THE DAILY
UBYSSEY, prime publication of the Student
Publications Board.
From the pub offices, located in the north
basement of Brock Hall, the hundred odd student
journalists write, edit, compose, and distribute
five   regular  publications.
Most prominent effort of the board is the
UBYSSEY. Dating back to 1918 the UBYSSEY-
has evolved from the monthly ANON in 1916
advancing through the stages of bi-weekly, weekly
twice weekly, thrice weekly, and now for the
first time in the history of the University, to a
daily.
Administration of the full-size four-page sheet
is handled largely by Managing Editor, Val
Sears.
Commencing the first week in September, THE
DAILY UBYSSEY will bring students up-to-the-
minute campus news daily Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday. Printing technicalities ren-

der it impossible to publish on the remaining days
of the week.
The  costs are met  through  the  combined  resources of advertising revenue and student council
grant, no point of sale charge being made to the
. students.
The TOTEM, annual chronicle of your year at
UBC, hit over 350 page - 6000 picture mark last
year and is expected to achieve even greater
acclaim this year.
The three-time All American Award winning
yearbook hits the campus just prior to exams in
April and is sold to the students at the ridiculously
low price of $3.75.
The TILLICUM, the invaluable aid to freshman
you are now reading, the literary magazine
THUNDERBIRD, published quarterly, and the
student telephone directory make up the balance
pf the pub's service to the University.
A solicitious welcome is extended to all inter -
sted freshman  to  availa  themselves of the unequalled opportunity to learn journalism afforded
by the pub.
Regardless of previous experience you will be
writing new stories, columns, editorials as well
as the next man who happens to be William
Allan  White. ,,

LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC
EXECUTIVE
PRESIDENT   —   ROGER   PEDERSEN
. The Literary and Scientific Executive is the
governing body which directs the extra-curricular
activities. Under Student Councillor Roger Ped-
ei^sen, President of the LSE, its secretary and
'the presidents of eleven clubs meet twice a
month to keep their fingers on club matters.
All club presidents meet with Roger once each
term. Minor clubs are represented on the LSE
by Roger and five of their number who are
elected to the Major Executive each year. The
Player's Club, Musical Society, Mamooks, Parliamentary Forum, Student Christian Movement,
and Radio Society are permanent major clubs.
. The first Friday of the term is the LSE registration day when Frosh are registered for club
activities. The second week of the term will be
club week when all clubs hold special open membership meetings to acquaint prospective members
with cub activities.
This year the registratipn procedure will differ
slightly. Introduced by Pedersen, a new card
index system will operate, which will feature
fill-ins for club membership, club offices held if
any, and billeting blanks'.
Another innovation is the contact sheet system
for major club business forms. This will contain
the L.S.E. contacts handled.
This year again the Special Events Committee
under L.S.E. will present talented instrumentalists,
vocalists, speakers, and six scheduled concerts
of the Vancouver Symphony, all of which are
financed  in part by the Pass Feature System.
The Literary and Scientific Honorary Society
includes Faculty members and Students who
particularly   merit   the   Society   pin.

The Players' Club, now entering its 34ith year
of existence, maintains its reputation for being
one of the most active clubs on the campus by
producing three short plays in the fall and ont
long play in the spring. Post-war years again
bring the Spring Tour when Thespians participating in the spring play make a tour of the

There's always something doing in the Green
Room, so whether it's acting, costume designing,
stage setting, or anything connected with the
stage, it's the Players' Club for you. Membership
is limited. You will be chosen on the basis of
competitive  try-outs and  technical  skill.   ,
MUSICAL SOCIETY
President—John Fish
To encourage an appreciation of music, each
Spring the Society produces a light opera for
which their members sing, act, play in the orchestra, or help with costumes and make-up.
A subsidiary Glee Club gives enjoyment to those
wishing to sing but without operatic leanings. In
conjunction with the Radio Society, "Mussoc"
members give solo performances over the air.
A private try-out or interview will admit you
to "Mussoc" ranks whether you have musical
talent in any line or whether you have armchair
interests in music or musical productions.
MAMOOKS
President—
this   campus   service   organization   has   charge 34
The TILLICUM Handbook
of cheer-leading, poster-painting, ticket sales,
ushering, dance-decorations, coat-chedking, and
a long et cetra. Active members are chosen
'from competent applicants on a probationary
basis BUT the number of applicants is not limited
and anyone interested may apply.
In addition 'to providing campus life with oil
for its machinery and sequins for its glamour,
Mamooks guarantee a hearty welcome and a busy
year for those enterprising Frosh.
PARLIAMENTARY FORUM
President-
Weekly debates are the main occupation of
Forumites who belong to a club committed to
foster debating and public speaking on the campus.
Inter-university, inter-faculty, and "intersex"
debates provide opportunity for men and women
of every year and faculty to test their mental
prowess and physical stamina. Besides the Mc-
Goun Cup and Frosh Debates, Spring and Fall
Mock Parliaments are arranged so that even the
most timid frosh may rise and say a very few
words without weeks of rehearsal, work, and
worry.
STUDENT CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT
President—
The S.C.M. is a fellowship open to all students
whose purpose is to seek truth, to understand
and live the Christian life and discover what
loyalty to God through Jesus Christ implies for
them in all areas of living.

informal discussions are held on the basic documents of Christian faith, on student problems
concerning God, man, and the meaning of exist-

ence, and on the Christian Ways of life in both
its individual and social aspects.
Regular periods of group worship are provided
on the campus in addition to service in city
churches. Weekend camps and conferences, and
frequent firesides and social events round out
the program.
Through conferences, work camps, student exchange, visitors and periodicals, members of the
S.C.M. develop contacts with students across
Canada and throughout the world.
RADIO SOCIETY
President-
Event of the year for Radsoccers was the construction of the slick new studio. Facilities of
the complete unit now consist of two studios, a
Central control room with complete modern
e-,iiirr"e"t tran«crintion room with space for
1000 records; and an outer administrative office
where continuity is written and files kept. The
organization of the radio society is patterned as
closeley as possible on that of a commercial radio
station, in order to instruct members both male
and   coed,  under  actual  broadcasting  conditions.
Evidence of the success of this policy is the
large number of club members who have obtained positions in radio. URS now operates on
two networks, the campus line, and a line hookup to all local radio station?. Last vear. URC
produced two trans-Canada broadcasts on the
WURF series. WURF the network of the four
Western universities, had for its chairman URS

ATHLETICS
Wherever intelligent men gather to work and
toil, they allot a certain amount of their time to
recreation and play. Even at the time the University was entrenched in the ancient, now renowned "Fairview Shacks," athletics have had
their place in the lives of the students.
The evolution has been slow, yet has taken on
a definite pattern in its progression. At the beginning recreational games were arranged within
, the college. From that point, as the students
became more proficient, competitions took place
with outside of the city teams. Then as the University grew in size and outlook, the seemingly
unsurmountable step was taken when we competed against Universities east of the Rockies.
Like Hannibal, Caesar or Alexander, we found
our lines of communications stretched to the
breaking point so we turned to our only other
outlet, the south, for new fields to conquer.
The University has doubled and trebled in
the last twenty-five years. In tune with this,
athletics have undergone a complete metamor-
phasis. This change has been purely physical
' however. It was stated many years ago that the
aim of the Men's Athletic Association was to
promote clean sport, and to prevent the unhealthy.
condition resulting from indoor work of the
student. This is still the primary aim of the
Men's Athletic Directorate.
There are coaches for all sports, who give their
time voluntarily and who have proved themselves more than proficient in their particular
fields of athletics. They have been carefully
"selected with a view to the influence they have
on their athletes, with your support they try to
develop firstly, sportsmanship, secondly, a winning team. ,
The University seeks to leave the road open
ior star athletes to further their prowess and at
• the same time it seeks to develop young, inexperienced athletes. There are many different
sports and teams of all calibres in each spD:t;
the places on teams are given without favoritism
; or prejudice, nationality, age, experience, pedigree, bankroll or past records, the position is
alw ys open to the best man. There is an oppoi-
tunity for anyone who is physically fit, and we
• are anxious for you to take advantage of this.
^Furthermore the comradeship that is gained from
^undertaking an athletic endeavour is a permanent
Jtbing, when the muscles grow stiff and the tendons
; tight  the  memories  of  the  past  fields  of  battle
still live. I urge you, even if you have no par-
t'cular   adaptability   for   athletics- to   come   out
and support the teams. To seme of you who are ■
fnot capable of active participation we offer positions managing these teams.
Here we offer freshmen the opportunity to
tplay on any team on which he can make a place.
'The freshmen classes in the past have had men
fon   the  first   teams   in   every  sport;   that   is   the
challenge that they leave. Watch the notice boards
[for the first practice and come on out even if it is
just to watch. ,
WARNING
No male student is allowed during the session
to take part in athletic competition or games foil
any team or organization other than a University
team without the consent, in writing, of the
Men's Athletic Directorate, approved by resolution
oi the Students' Council. Any student so doing/
in violation of this regulation will automatically
forfeit all claim to an athletic award in any
sport. 54

THE UBC  ATHLETIC  PROGRAM 1947-48
Since this University entered the Pacific
Northwest Inter-Collegiate Athletic Conference two
years ago, there has been a definite swing to extramural competition with universities and colleges
south of the border. Previous to the year 1946,
inter-collegiate athletic competition with the
Prairie Provinces was both difficult and costly.
Athletic relations in the Northwestern States have
proven much more convenient and economical too
Although the field was limited to football,
bssetball, track and field, and tennis at first, there
has been a move to include other sports, such as
golf, skiing and swimming en the Conference
agenda.
Continued expansion of campus sports was
witnessed in the addition of two new clubs con-
tituted under the Men's Athletic Directorate.
There were the Tennis Club and the Barbell
Club. Also many new teams were added in other
ports, providing for increased athletic participation.
There follows a brief review of the individual
activities:
AMERICAN FOOTBALL
Last fall UBC engaged in its second season
of football and showed marked improvement in
all phases of the sport. The team moved up from
last place in the Conference standing by virtue
of their fjrst victory in this sport. Playing eight
games, four home and four away, the UBC club
lost six of its seven Conference contests, but two
of these were by narrow one-point decisions. The
eighth game was an exhibition against Western
Washington College at Bellingham. Aside from the
initial victory, football gained in popularity with
evidence of increased interest and attendance at
the games. 60
,The TILLICUM Handbook.
BASKETBALL
This sport again proved to be the favorite of
the athletic enthusiasts at UBC. Seven teams sawB
action during the past season, and a new league, ■
the UBC Minor Basketball League, was established. a
The Varsity Club, the Thunderbirds, finished in J
second place with Willamette University in the ■
Northwest Conference, winning nine of their 14 ■
league games. This team also played 17 ex- ■
hibiticn games and at present has a record of fl
21 victories against 10 defeats in their regular ■
season.
It is true to S3y that a few unfortunate set- 1
backs during their road trips cost the Thunder- ■
birds the PNIAC title, but with the Olympic 1
Trials in sight, they continued to improve their ■
brand of ball. A post season victory over the 1
Vancouver Clover Leafs, who went on to win the I
Canadian Amateur Basketball Title, gave the m
Thunderbirds new  confidence.  The Thunderbirds I
-defeated the College of Western Ontario to win I
the Canadian Inter-collegiate Championship and M
at the same time qualified them to send a large 4
percentage of their membership to the Olympics, I
representing Canada at the International Basket- 1
ball Championship of the XlVth Olympiad this 1
summer.
The junior Varsity team, the Chiefs, competed '
in the Intercity Basketball League, finished third I
in regular play, then upset the second-place team I
in the playoffs and ended as runners-up to the 1
.Canadian championship Clover Leafs who elimin- I
r.ted them in the finals. The other five UBC bas-  I
■ketball teams — two Senior B and three Inter- 1
mediate A — played a regular schedule on the I
campus in their own  new minrr league.
ENGLISH RUGBY
Still highest in popularity amongst this Uni-
MEN'S TEAMS-
61
versity's athletes, this game enjoyed a banner
year as UBC fifteens again collected all the important 'cups and trophies. Two first division
teams, four second division and two third division
clubs participated during the past season. The
Varsity team won the Millar Cup with 10 straight
victories and no defeats. The UBC team annexed
the Tisdall Cup, and the Thunderbird crew successfully defended the McKechnie Cup against
Vancouver and Victoria, and the "World Cup"
against the University of California. In addition,
an exhibition game against the famous Australian
Wallabies in the campus stadium on March 3
highlighted  the extremely successful season.
SOCCER
Two University sides competed in the Vancouver and District League during the 1947-48
season, one in the first division and one in the
second division. The Varsity team led the league
most of the way but finished in second place
as the Empire Hotel eleven edged ahead at the
very end o-' the season .
CROSS COUNTRY and TRACK AND FIELD
'The University's long distance runners, winners
of   the   Pacific   Northwest   Inter-Collegiate   Cross
Country  Championships  'or  four  straight  years,
were unfortunately stranded without a meet last
fall,  bu twill  be  ready  to mget any  challengers'
again   next   autumn.   The   track   and   field   team,
which placed second in its first Conference meet-
in May, 1946, went to the front last May, winning'
the PNIAC trophy as two UBC athletes established
new conference records. In addition to the Conference  championships,  the  UBC  team   will   also
compete   i   na   dual   meet   with   the   College   of
Puget Sound this season.
SWIMMING
In  previous  years  the  UBC  Swim  Club  has. 62
The TILLICUM Handbook
been limited to competition with Vancouver and
Victoria clubs, but the Pacific Northwest Conference decided to hold a trial championship meet
at Portland this year, and the UBC acquatic
athletes scored an easy victory over two other
competing schools, namely Willamette University
and Lewis and Clark College.
ICE HOCKEY
The MAD sponsored two ice hockey teams
"during the past semester, the Varsity club competing in the Intercity Senior Ice Hockey League
while the new junior Varsity team played in1
the Twilight Industrial League at New Westminster. After finishing third in the Intercity League
Standings, the Thunderbird crew lost out in the
semi-final playoffs to Nanaimo Clippers. The
Varsity team also played special exhibition series '
against the University of California at Berkeley
and the San Francisco Olympic Club last December

ATHLETIC CONFERENCE
During the 1945-46 session, the University of
B.-itish Columbia was admitted as a full member
of the PNIAC. Other conference members are
College of Puget Sound, WiUamette University,
Whitman College, Pacific University, Linfjeld
College, Lewis and Clark College, and College of
Idaho. During three years of play in this Conference the "Thunderbirds" added many new
laurels in various sports, being particularly im-
Iiessive  in  Basketball  and Track and  Field.  In 64
The TILLICUM Handbook
1946, the Thunderbirds won the basketball title
a-d h ve never finished lower than third place in
this spcrt. Other wins included Track and Field
in 1947 and 1948, golf and tennis in 1948.
In the .all of 1948, with the completion of the
football schedule against member teams of the
PNIAC the University of British Columbia will
terminate athletic play in the Conference, but
will continue relations with Conference members
by competing in exhibition games. Relations between the competing Colleges and Universities
-re now well established, and, upon leaving after
three years of competition, the University of
British Columbia will look back with mixed feeling-- of satisfaction and regret, — satisfaction from
its accomplishments, regrets at its departure.
A UBC team competed in the conference championships at McMinneville, Ore., last spring and
took fourth place, but a much stronger team has
been chosen this year. It has already registered
one-sided victories over Western Washington
College -and the Ccllege of Puget Sound in dual-
meets staged on the UBC tennis courts early this
menth. They will play these two colleges in return meets as well as the University of Portland
before competing in the PNIAC championships at

WOMEN'S UNDERGRADUATE SOCIETY
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.
Membership to WUS is automatically conferred
on all women students when they enter the University. The executive is composed of the Honorary President, President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Representatives of 1st, 2nd, 3rd,
4th Arts, Aggie, Home Economics, Nurses, Commerce, President of Pan-Hellenic and President
of Phrateres.
Throughout the year WUS sponsors a number of
tea dances and one-co-ed Dance.
SOCIAL   CALENDAR
Freshette Lunch: Food, frolic, fun and punishment
(fo rnaughty freshettes) will highlight the freshette lunchedn. This interesting conglomeration
comes in the first week—so get your childhood
clothes out of mothballs, polish up your appetite

PHRATERES
Entering on its fourteenth year at the UBC,
Phrateres is the largest Women's club on the
campus. Membership is open to any sorority or
non-sorority girl who is in sympathy with the
ideals of the society as expressed in the motto
"Famous for Friendliness.''
The large organization, all-Fhrateres, is divided
into sub-chapters which meet twice each month
for social purposes to discuss business.
Activities include the annual banquet and initiation dance and several smaller parties. Philanthropic work includes hampers for the underprivileged at Christmas and throughout the term.
Phraters 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.
GREEKS
Because of the Greek letters by which they are
known, fraternities and sororities are known as
Greek Letter Societies and their members are
called "the Greeks." All students in freshman
Maths classes will get to know letters of the
Greek alphabet before the year is over.
By custom only, certain tables in the Caf have
come to be recognized as certain fraternity and
sorority tables. They are not officially recognized
and   are   merely   places   where   fraternities   and 90
The TILLICUM Handbook
sorority people have become used to meeting each
other.
Like members of any other organization on the
campus, 'the Greeks," are taught that their first
loyalty as student sis to the University as a whole.
HONORARY
Unique among the campus Greek letter societies
are the honorary societies, Sigma Tau Chi and
Delta Sigma Pi. Members are admitted to these
groups on a system of points, accredited for
scholarship and service to the student body.
Membership into each is limited each year. Sigma
Tau Chi is a fraternity, and members wear a
small gold Grecian sword, while girls in Delta
Sigma Pi  wear a pin bearing a  miniature torch.
FRATERNITIES
At UBC, fraternities are officially recognized ss
active student organizations and each group has
a charter from the Senate.
It is very difficult to describe fraternities in
general, as one of them may be quite different
they are groups of men who are joined together
from the next one. It may be said, however, that
in a secret society of comradeship, both during
their undergraduate days and in later life. Fraternities are distinguished from other secret and
fraternal oganizations in that they are strictly
university societies. At UBC, as at most colleges,
prospective members have to meet certain academic requirements.
Membership in a fraternity is by invitation. A
"bid" to join one of the groups may be extended
to a man after a periad of mutual investigation
known as 'rushing." During that time an effort is
made to fit a man into the fraternity where he
will  be  most  happy.  Because  each  man should
FRATERNITIES .
91
know as much as possible about fraternities before
he considers joining one, and because there are
scholastic standards to meet, no man may be of-
ficiaUy rushed until his sophomore year.
All men interested should strive during their
reshman year to learn as much as possible about
fraterities. Further information may be obtained
from the members.
INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL
Representatives from all the fraternities meet
together in this Council to formulate plans and
policy common to all the groups. The I.F.C. regulates rushing and also fosters inter-fraternity
contests for scholarships and athletics. In conjunction with the Pan-Hellenic Society, it also
organizes an annual charity ball and a song-fest.

SORORITIES
Apart from the one obvious difference, sororities
are   quite   similar   in   purpose   to   fraterities   and
are  also  afiicially  recognized  by  the  university.
* They are groups of college  women gathered together for friendship within secret societies.
The system of rushing for sororities, however, is
quite different from that used by the men. All
women who register for rushing are contacted by
the Pan-Hellenic Association and arrangements
are made through the office of the Dean of Women. No woman is eligible until sophomore year.
PAN-HELLENIC ASSOCIATION
This organization—known usually as Pan-HeU—
is composed of members from all the sororities
and regulates certain activities common to all the
groups. It controls rushing and organizes such
inter-sorority af airs as a bowling league. In
conjunction with the I.F.C. Pan-Hell helps in
manage an all-university charity ball each spring
and also shares in arranging a song-fest for
fraternity  and sorority  members.

U.B.C.   BRANCH  No.   72-CANADIAN  LEGION,
BRITISH EMPIRE  SERVICE  LEAGUE
The Canadian Legion Branch at the University
of British Columbia is an organization of ex-
servicemen and women dedicated to the successful rehabilitation of all veterans in civilian life
with a minimum of friction.
Branch 72, active on this campus after the First
World War, was reconsttiuted with a new charter
in the spring of 1945, to replace the Canadian
University Returned Men's Association. UBC was
the first University in Canada to obtain a charter
from the Canadian Legion, but since that time
others have followed suit. Every Campus has a
veteran's organization, but it is probable that the
Legion is most effective through its ability to
draw support from its parent body which has
work so long and efficiently for veterans of
both wars. It was the Canadian Legion which was
instrumental in having the Government plan and
execute the educational rehabilitation program .
which has allowed so many ex-seervicemen and
women to attend university.
Although the UBC Branch, as a member of a
National and Commonwealth organization, is a
partner in working for the rehabilitation of all
veterans its specific role is working in the best
interests of the university and the ex-service
tusdnts which form such a large percentage of
its enrolment. During its first year, the branch
has established a creditable record of achievement
ir> varied fields. Through a housing survey they
found accommodation for one hundred and fifty
Students  and  their  families,   and  are  continuing 94
The TILLICUM Handbook
to work on this problem which is one of the most j
critical for many students. After another survey
on the cost of living had indicated insufficiency
of the DVA allowances, the Branh made active
efforts to obtain further government assistance
which fould avoid the likelihood of large withdrawals of students due to financial difficulties.
Although government anti-inflation policy made
increases impossible, a loan fund was authoribed
which will mean the difference between quitting
and finishing for many students. Besides other
activities to help campus vets, the Legion sponsors
entertainment and get-to-gethers to preserve the
service camaradie which no one   desires to lose.
Although not part of the Alma Mater Society,
the Legion has become an inegral part'of campus
activity and intends to carry on this policy during
the coming years. In accordance with its policy
of no fusing its size and position in pressure
group tactics, it does not and will not assume a
partisan role in campus politics, but is active in
most other fields. During the past year its executive co-operated with the War Memorial Gym
Fund Committee and the Legion raised weH over
o**e thousand dollars for this purpose. It is our hope
tc contribute its weight to this and other worthy
campus activities. The Employment Committee
were instrumental in organizing a permanent Uni-
ve-sity Employment Bureau which serves ALL
Students. During the Spring and Summer Sessions
the Legion published a Campus edition of its Le-
nonette, which served the student body until the
Ur-vpsey resumed publication in the Fall.

HISTORY

HISTORICAL   SKETCH
At the threshold of the University, about to make
yourself "at home" here for three, four or five
years, you perhaps wonder what sort of past this
UBC alma mater has. You may puzzle over and
want to know more of the significance of certain
In Memorian ceremonies, such as the Cairn rites,
you may be impressed but noncomprehending
when references to the Great Student Trek, and
to the toil, tears and sweat that built this institution
are thrown about. To you, then, this brief historical review is presented.
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 pased allowing
the affiliation cf 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. v
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 cf 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.
i
j First definite steps toward establishing the
University in its present condition were taken by
Dr. H. E. Young, then Minister of Education in 96
The TILLICUM Handbook
1907. He introduced the University Endowment
Act, which later gave the University the great
tract of land which it now possesses.
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 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-Gover-
nor-in-Council appointed as President of the
University, F. F. Westbrook, M.D..C.M., LL.D.
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
Agricuture was appointed acting president, and
on June 1, President. From its opening in 1915
till the summer of 1915, 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 net completed  until  the
great and now famous student campaign of 1922.
In this campaign, students paraded through the
streets of downtown Vancouver complete with
posters, loudspeakers and mass meetings. They
made house to house canvasses, wrote letters and
did everything posible to bring to public light the
stifling conditions of the Fairview 'Shackl.
HISTORY
97
Thecl   imax   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 i
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 shacks. Inside the Cairn is a
manuscript with the signatures of those who participate 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 to the University. All three
buildings were obtained chiefly through the efforts and enterprise of the student body.
On July 31, 1944, Dr. L. S. KUnck retired as
president of the University and was succeeded by
Dr. Norman" Ma?Kenzie, then President of the
University of New Biunswick. 98

To the hardened senior as well as to the |
ireshman, UBC abounds with interesting scenes:
and details.
"Freshest"   on  the  list  are  the  new  campus!
buildings.   The  $800,000   Physics   Building,   which]
houses UBC's atomic energy laboratory, was opened
in October, 1947. The Library is now in the process of being made two and one-half times larger!
than   formerly.   A   cluster   of   new   white   frame I
buildings   opposite   the   Science   building   house /
the Architecture  department, and  additional lecture halls.
One of the first scenes that greets the eye of
the    freshman    is    Frank    Underbill's    no-doubt j
amcus  "Caf."   This   is,   first  impressions  to  the j
contrary, primarily a place to eat. It is also the
place  to  meet  the  cute   little  number  that   sits
next to you in English.
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 Jubliee Memorial Window
occupies a place of honour at the western end of
the main concourse of the Library. These windows
were unveiled on November 27, 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.
j'chn Riddington, former university librarian, the
Carnegie Corporation of New York donated an
extensive art collection to the university. The
collection  consists of 185  volumes,  200 reproduc-
tions and 40 especially framed large paintings.
This coUection may be found in the Art Room
in the Library.
Another gift of the Carnegie Corporation is the
Libzrary of Congress Catalogue, situated in the
main lobby of the Library. This catalogue, a
collection of more than 1,500,000 cards is valued
t $65,000 and lists every book copyrighted in the
United States. There are only two other such
catalogues in Canada.
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 wen the Dominion Basketball 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 wrere presented
to the university in 1927 by the Alumni Association.
They are from the Point Grey Musquiam Reserve

Cairn. It was presented to the University in 1928
by B. S. Hartley .professor mathematics, retired

STUDENT BUILDINGS
One of the most unusual and noteworthy facts
about our campus is the number of buildings that
have been conceived, planned, and financed by
students themselves. Students acted on their own
initiative rather than wait for assistance. In this
manner the Gymnasium, the Brock Hall and the.
Stadium were built and various other projects
carried out, such as landscaping the stadium,
erecting a cairn to commemorate the campaign for
a new site. One of the most striking of these
student achievements is the modern Brock Hall.
BROCK MEMORIAL 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
a student Union building to permanently corn-
students of their day that it was decided to erect
memorate the Dean and his wife. The dream
of those students was realized on January 31, 1940,
when Lieut. Governor E. W. Hamber officially
opened the Brock Hall, third structure on the
campus to be built from student funds.
The first important campaign for money,
launched in the spring of 1936 by AMS president
Bernard Brynelson with an objective of $30 000,
closed at the end of the session with less wian
$7,000 contributed. The next two years saw
student campaigners President 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 "flew lease on life and the  campaign began in 102

earnest. With the promise of $20,500 in ten annual
instalments from the Govermnent 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
centre 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.
ROOMS IN THE BROCK HALL

UNIVERSITY  HEALTH  SERVICE
The University Health Service, exists to prevent
communicable diseases, to render fiirst aid in cases
of accidents and sudden sickness, and to furnish
advice about health matters to the general student
body. 104
The TILLICUM Handbook
All  students  entering the  University  for  the
first time must report immediately to the Health
Service, making an appointment for examination   ;
Students neglecting to do so will be disciplined by
the University Health Committee.
Discovery cf Infectious Persons:
All cases oi illness, including a common cold,
developed during the academic year, must be
reported to the Health Office at once: if on the   .
campus, personally, otherwise by phone. After an
illness, students must report to the Health Office
for inspection before re-admission to the University.
Disposal of Infectious Persons:
AU persons reasonably suspected of infectiveness are excluded from contact with others until
shown  to   be  non-effective   or,   if  shown   to   be
infective,   until   the   actual   termination   of   such
■ infectiveness.
All University contacts of infectiveness are to
report to the Health Office for determination of
suspectibility, 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 vt three years ago, since the number of cases increased significantly after well-
attended  dances.

campus groups outside this nation.
During the year, a continual exchange of information goes on between NFCUS members, and
once a year delegates from all Canadian campuses meet for a many-day conference. During his
term in office, the NFCUS president usually makes
a tour of all the universities. Last year President Maurice Sauve of Montreal visited UBC
whfie on such a tour.
INTERNATIONAL UNION OF STUDENTS
Last year as a result of a resolution passed
by the annual meeting of the general student
body, UBC along with other Canadian student
bodies, decided to affiliate with IUS on a two-
year conditional basis. Reason for UBC's "with
strings attached" decision to enter the world-wide -
organization is, that at the present time IUS, the
student United Nations, is controlled by Com-,
munist students who have aUowed their belief
fo color their decisions.
This decision led to a very important IUS conference, which just ended  this week  in Europe.
At this showdown meeting, about forty student
groups from the Western and Southern hemispheres have demanded that politics be outlawed
from IUS. Should the Red executive refuse their
request, the protesting groups have threatened
to withdraw from IUS and form a rival Western
organization. Decision at press time is pending. 116 The TILLICUM Handbook

CASEY JONES
(Engineer's   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..
(Chorus)
Casey Jones couldn't hold his liquor,
Casey Jones couldn't hold his beer,
Casey Jones never got through college
He never got through college 'cause he couldn't'
held his beer.
Casey Jones was the  engineer's pride
In footbaU  or hockey he  always saved his  side
He  was a  whiz  in classwork,  his reports  were
always clear,
But he never got. his parchment 'cause he couldn't
hold his beer.
Casey's career looked free from want or need
The dean would pat him on the back  and  say,
"You're bright indeed."
He came to grief as all youths do, ne'er became
an engineer,
And the reason for his failure was, he couldn't
hold his beer.
The grand 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."
SONGS AND YELLS
121
Casey said, just before he died,
To the engineers who mournfully were standing
by  his' side:
"Erect a tablet in the halls, engrave these letters

beer."

Great strong whusky suppin Hielan men, for they

They were founded by McAdam who of a' men

He resided in Gleneden, whaur he pipit like the

Wi' a fig leaf for a sporran, and a pairfect Hielan

Till he stole awa' the applies fra Glen whorple!
When  the  watters  o'  the  deluge  drookit a'   the
