EDITOR'S NOTE
This Handbook is published to acquaint
you with the extra-curricular activities
and the code of regulations of the Alma
Mater Society of the University of British
Columbia. It will enable new students to
become more quickly adjusted to their
new surroundings.
The club and athletic write-ups have
been brought up to date and the new
eligibility rules included. Note the constitution, historical sketch and points of
interest—they are important too!
We hope that the Handbook will be of
some help to you, and that you will join
as many extra-curricular activities as possible. University life will have a deeper
meaning for those of you who participate
in student activities, and a wealth of experience can be gained through membership
in any or all of the clubs. Every campus
organization depends upon and welcomes
new students.

HINTS TO THE  FR08H
. 1.    Carry a copy of the Handbook all
the time. Read it right through; you
need the information it contains.
2. Attend ali Alma Mater Meetings.
3. Learn the U. B. C. songs and
yells.
4. Use the freshman information
bureau.   It's there to help you.
5. Watch notice boards and the
■"Ubyssey" for notices of clubs in
which you are interested.
6. The best way to get in touch
with anyone is through the Arts Letter Rack.
7. Talk over your problems with
your dean. First year women are especially urged to consult Dean Bollert
on all the'ir Varsity problems. The
Alma Mater President may be consulted on various problems by arranging
for an appointment at Room 303.
8. Put all your spare interest into
some activity; Varsity will mean ten
times more. Attend as many University affairs as you can.
9. Do your work every day. Keeping
up is easier than catching up.
10. Remember: this 'is your University. First loyalty comes to it and its
activities.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
FOREWORD
In these stern days it is more than
ordinarily difficult to comply with the
request of the editor that I write the
foreword to the Handbook.
The purpose for which this Utile
booklet for undergraduates is issued
remains the same as in previous years,
but the conditions under which the
students of today must conduct the
affairs of the many organizations
listed in this publication have had no
close parallel since the days of the
Great War.
This is a generation of students
that has not known war, a generation
that has consistently thought and
lived in the way of peace. Can they
adjust themselves to the new conditions? Will they assume the heavy
responsibilities—personal and corporate—which the situation imposes? In
the tradition of this University is
found a clear and unmistakable answer: They will.
And so, in welcoming all students
to the University of British Columbia,
I do so In the confident assurance that,
as their predecessors enlarged our
conception of duty in the time of
Bupreme trial, so the present generation of students will not fail.

A. M. S. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
On behalf of the Alma Mater Society
may I extend a sincere welcome to the
students attending the 1939-40 Session.
This welcome is extended particularly to
the new students of our University.
New-comers will find an entirely different atmosphere from that to which
they have been accustomed in their school
days. Here at the University they will
develop a much broader outlook and find
wider opportunities in education, culture,
athletics, and literary and scientific organizations. All of these activities, which
are carried on by the students, are outlined in this handbook, and it is to your
benefit to read and to profit by availing
yourself of the many opportunities offered
to you.
The members of the Alma Mater Society are proud of the work they have done
in the building of the University. It was
through the initiative of the students that
the gymnasium, the stadium and the new
Brock Memorial Building have appeared
on the campus, and it is the part of the
new-comers to further the progress that
has been made. Not only should the students work to further the University on
the campus, but they should strive at all
times to uphold the reputaion and honour
that already belong to us.
The opportunities are here—
TUUM EST!—It's up to you!

8TATUTE 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 RE80LVED
AND ENACTED as follows:—
1. All forms of initiation or clash of
students which in any way are or
tend to become injurious to any
person or property, committed by
any student anywhere or by any
person upon property under the
control of the University, are
hereby absolutely prohibited. 8TUDBNTS' HANDBOOK 16

UNIVERSITY OF B- C.
ATHLETIC8
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 programme 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 who are 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
other 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 the
Btudents in the development of an extensive intra-mural programme. 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 Art's
'20 relay  held  each  spring and  the 18
UNIVERSITY OF B   C.
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
bockey.
Intra-Mural  Programme
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 programme embracing most sports. This provides for
inter-class, inter-fraternity, and group
competitions. Each year more and
more students have taken part in this
programme. Be sure to watch for
notices in regard to intra-mural sports
and turn out.

FRATERNITIES
Fraternities and sororities are ,
groups of students with common
ideals and a liking for one another,
organized into secret societies of from
fifteen to forty members. "Rushing,"
the system whereby these organizations contact prospective members, is
carried on according to rules agreed
to by all the fraternities. It consists of
members contacting "rushees" through
social affairs in order to become acquainted with him. At the end of the
rushing season if the fraternity decides it wants the person as a member one of its members gives him a
'bid' or invitation to join.
From the prospect's point of view
the rushing season is an opportunity
to form an impartial opinion of the
various fraternities. It is extremely
important to him if he joins a fraternity at all to join one whose members he really esteems as individuals,
and whose ideals are similar to his
own. Otherwise fraternity life will be
a total failure. The prospect often
finds it very difficult to make up his
mind, particularly if a number of fraternities are  rushing him.    If  he  is 126
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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 women's Greek letter
societies. The new system has numerous advantages, the most important
of which are financial.
The  President  of  Panhellenic  will
 STUDENTS' HANDBOOK 127
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.

HISTORICAL  SKETCH
In 1890 the Provincial Legislature
passed an Act establishing a body
politic and corporate named "The University of British Columbia". No
material progress was made, however,
until 1894, when an Act was passed
which permitted the affiliation of
high schools in the Province with
recognized  Canadian  Universities.
In 1899 Vancouver High School was
affiliated with McGill University in
order to provide first year work in
Arts, and took the name of Vancouver
College. First year work in Arts was
offered by Victoria High School when
it became Victoria College by affiliating  with  McGill  University  in   1902.
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
129
In the same year Vancouver College
undertook the second year in Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution for the
Advancement of Learning of British
Columbia, which in the same year
established at Vancouver the McGill
University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College which was part of it
ceased to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr. H. E.
Young, Minister of Education, in 1907,
when he introduced a "University Endowment Act." This Act was followed in 1908 by an Act establishing and
incorporating the University of British Columbia and repealing the old
Act of 1890-91. This Act with its
subsequent amendments, determines
the present constitution of the University.
A site commission, appointed in
1910, recommended the vicinity of
Vancouver and in the following year
the Point Grey site was granted to
the University. The grant now consists of 548 acres at the extremity of
Point Grey. The waters of the Gulf
of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University campus.
A tract of some 3,000 acres of Government land immediately adjoining the
site and lying between it and the City 130
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
of Vancouver has been set aside by
the Government in order that University revenue may be provided by
sale or lease.
The first Convocation, held on August 1st, 1912, chose Mr. F. L. Carter-
Cotton as first chancellor of the University. In March, 1913, the Lieuten-
ant-Governor-in-Council appointed as
President of the University, F. F.
Wesbrook, M.A., M.D., CM, LL.D. On
April 4th, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie,
the  present  chancellor,  was   elected.
On the death of President Wesbrook,
October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean
of the faculty of Agriculture, was appointed Acting President, and on June
1st, 1919, President.
From its opening in 1915 till the
summer of 1925, the University carried on its work in temporary quarters
on part of the site of the General
Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work was commenced
on the Science Building at the Point
Grey site in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on
this building was resumed in 1923,
shortly after the great Student Campaign. The Science Building and the
Library, as well as nine other buildings, were completed and ready for
occupancy in the fall of 1925.
The inauguration of the new build-
 STUDENTS' HANDBOOK 131
ings was held on October 16th and
16th, 1926, on which occasion honorary degrees were granted by the University for the first time.
The gymnasium was completed in
1929 and presented to the University
by the Alma Mater Society.
In 1931, due to the efforts of the
students, largely in their "Stadium
Campaign," an excellent playing field
was constructed on the campus. In
1937, a fine concrete stadium, capacity 1,-600, complete with showers,
badminton courts and offices, together with bleachers, capacity 1,000,
was erected to fulfil long-needed seating requirements.
The present session will see the
completion and opening of the Brock
Memorial Student Union Building, the
most recent venture of the student
body at the University.
To perpetuate the memory of Dean
and Mrs. R. W. Brock the new building will eventually house all student
activities, together with a dining room,
lounge, and dance floor.
The present structure is but part of
the building visualized by those who
started the campaign for $150,000 in
1935, and is the result of several years
of torrid work on the part of numerous student faculty committees. 132

POINTS OF INTEREST
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, 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, is a familiar object to all visitors of the Botanical Gardens. It was
presented to the University in 1924
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 collectetd
by Dr. Frank Burnett, who during a
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
13»
period of 36 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 North
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 was presented by
the friends of Inazo Nitobe to the
University. On August 29, 1936, the
University made formal acceptance of
this memorial to a great student and
an  apostle  of  international  goodwill.
TheTotem Poles, now situated in
the Botanical Gardens were presented in 1927 by the Alumni Association. They are from the Musquiam
Reserve, Point Grey and are the last
two of the tribe. The pole on the
right is the Capilano Pole, a carving
of the famous Capilano Chief; on the
left is the Tsem-Lano Pole, symbolic
of the magical powers of Tsem-Lano,
a great Musquiam warrior. 134
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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
Ridington, University Librarian, an
extensive art collection composed of
186 volumes, 200 reproductions and 40
large pictures specially framed were
donated to the University by the Carnegie Corporation 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
STUDENTS' HANDBOOK
135
in the main lobby of the Library.
This Catalogue, a collection of more
than 1,500,000 printed cards, is valued
at $66,000. There are only two others
in Canada.
This past spring, the University was
made the recipient of 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,
and 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 the central unit of a
modern stadium. Two wooden bleachers each seat 600. The total costing
$40,000, was financed by a bond issue.
To be completed near the close of
the first term of the present session
is the Brock Memorial Student Union
Building which is entirely a "student"
building. It is situated on the East
Mall, east of the Gymnasium and the
Library. 136
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
The building is intended to be but
a part of the final Union Building, and
Is being constructed in such a way as
to allow enlargement. The present
unit has been erected at a cost of
$76,000 and is part concrete and part
wood.
