The TILLICUM
To the incoming students my first word is a
word of welcome. Within these halls you may
find that for which you have come—an education
which will fit you for happy, effective living.
Those of you who compare this Handbook with
its predecessors will note that the momentous
issues at stake in the world about us have very
definitely influenced its content. Free periods
previously available for social intercourse, for
participation in inter-collegiate athletics, or for
leisurely browsing in the Library have been
seriously curtailed, if, indeed, they have not been
entirely eliminated. Demands, more stern and
insistent than those of pre-war days, now occupy
every hour of the students' time. This quickened
tempo emphasizes the fact, sometimes forgotten by
students in less exacting days, that much is
expected of them, not only after graduation, but
throughout the entire period of their undergraduate course.
The heavy enlistments among the physically-fit
men students of military age, and the success
which has attended the adoption of compulsory
war work for all women students, testify to the
unity of p-arpose, the luillingness to sacrifice and
the devotion to duty which pervade the campus
today.
Most cordially, therefore, do I welcome the
newcomers into this fraternity of young men and
women whose minds are set on the acquiring of
knowledge that they may the better serve their
generation as free men and women in a free
world.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
We are pleased to welcome you into the Alma
Mater Society.
From the first years of the University the Alma
Mater Society has built up a tradition of
progressive, self-reliant student government. Upon
you, whether you are entering fhe University for
the first time or returning once again, rests the
responsibility for seeing that by your active
interest in University and Alma Mater Society
affairs this tradition is continued.
The orientation programme will give you as
complete a picture as possible of the many
activities sponsored by the Society. We suggest
you choose the one in which you are particularly
interested and give it your spare time; you will
not have the time to take part in many activities.
Make use of the student building — Brock
Memorial HalU-and become acquainted with the
Services given by the A.MS. Office in the South
wing.
You are invited to call upon members of
Students' Council whenever you have questions
which you wish to discuss.

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
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 submit a budget
to Council early in the fall term. Budgets are then
The TILLICUM
IS
allotted by 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.
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.
COUNCIL PRESIDENT
Presiding at all meetings of the Alma Mater
Society and Students' Council as President in
1943-44 will be quiet-mannered, soft-spoken Bob
Whyte. As president of AMS Bob will hold the
reins of Council, while acting as an ex-officio
member of all the committees of the Society and
undertaking all duties generally falling to an
active President.
From the ranks of the Commerce Faculty, Bob
Whyte is aptly fitted to hold such an executive
position. His unassuming manner conceals the
aggressiveness that promises to make him one of
the most dynamic and crusading of AMS
Presidents. Council duties and studies will make
Bob a busy man, but he will always have time to
discuss any problem or theory about UBCs student
government. He will be glad to know your
opinions as a freshman. You will be glad to hear
what Council plans this year. UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
SECRETARY
,One of the Council claims
to beauty this year will
center around the eye-pleasing secretary, Helen Welch,
Miss Welch's job is writing
minutes for all meetings of
the Society and Students'
Council, handling all correspondence, reading reports of
organizations at the annual
meeting of the Society, and
generally keeping the secretarial records of Council.
Besides adding a delicate
touch to Council, Helen is
capable of handling any secretarial responsibility.
Helen   Welch
Secretary of the
Alma Mater Society
TREASURER
Hard working and energetic Donald M. Ross will
have charge of the financial
accounts of the AMS in 1943-
44. The treasurer is responsible for all funds of the
Society as well as compiling
a statement of the finances
for Council each month or
on request, and preparing
the yearly budget of the
Society. You can be confident that Don will balance
the budget expertly and
handle your money with the
greatest of care.

MEN'S
UNDERGRADUATE
SOCIETY
Headed this year by
diminutive Harry Curran,
the Men's Undergraduate
Society will play a substantial part in welcoming all Frosh to the
campus, beginning with
the Frosh Reception.
Throughout the year the
duties of the M.U.S. have to do mainly with the
social life of the men undergraduates.
Harry Curran is also known in his role of
Chairman of the Discipline Committee. Harry's
duty will be to show miscreants the errors of
their ways and devise fair, suitable punishment
for those guilty of disobeying student laws. For
his size Harry packs a lot of executive ability and
plenty of good nature, so keep your eye open
for the President of M.U.S.
The M.U.S. executive also comprises the
Secretary, Treasurer, and President of the Arts,
Engineers, and Agriculture Men's Undergarduate
Societies. 16

WOMEN'S
UNDERGRADUATE
SOCIETY
Personality-plus comes
to the council this year
in the person of Phyllis
Bishop, President of the
Women's Undergraduate
Society. Miss Bishop's
ready trademark is a
flashing smile. Behind
this smile, and shaded by
a happy personality, lies
executive ability that is
second to none.
The executive of W.U.S. undertakes a great deal
of work with the campus Red Cross effort and
women's compulsory war work, as well as
organizing a reception committee for all freshettes.
For the benefit of freshettes, W.U.S. assigns each
newcomer with a "Big 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.
On W.U.S. executive are an Honorary President,
Vice-President, Secretary Treasurer, President of
Nursing, Vice-Presidents of undergrad classes in
Arts and Education, a representative from
Agriculture, and President of Phrateres.

As Literary and Scientific Executive President
for 1943-44, Murdo McKenzie presides over
student activities that
come into the fields of
literature, art, music,
drama, public speaking,
debating, science, and all
forms of intellectual life.
Murdo is the champion of the numerous clubs
under the jurisdiction of L.S.E., and it is his job
to fight for their rights and get them publicity
and support in their activities. The network of
campus clubs, both major and minor, depend on
Murdo McKenzie for active support in Council.
Murdo will also look after the system of special
pass features, events to which student passes cover
admission. The type of entertainment that students
wish, such as Pep Meets, name bands, famous
classical music artists, all come under Murdo's
guidance.

UNDERGRADUATE SOCIETIES
There exist also three smaller men's undergraduate societies, one for each faculty: the Arts
Men's    Undergraduate    Society,    the    Engineers' UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
Undergraduate 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, these
societies now 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, brain-child of the
Arts Men's Undergraduate 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.)

PUBLICATIONS BOARD
Editor-in-chief of Publications for 1943-44 is
vivacious, red-headed Margaret Reid, better known
as "Dinah". One of the most energetic editors in
the history of the Ubyssey, she is always ready
to give assistance to a struggling cub reporter.
Dinah has been a prominent figure in 'the Pub
since 1940 and intends to make journalistic history
this year.
•iOk
Four publications come out of the "Pub" each
year, The Ubyssey, The Tillicum, The Directory,
and a special yearbook. The Pub itself is situated
in the North basement of the Brock and at all
times visitors will be impressed with the
distinctive social atmosphere of the Ubyssey office.
The Ubyssey is the official campus newspaper,
issued every Tuesday and, Friday, and distributed
free to the students in every important campus
building. It began publication as a monthly in
L916 and is now entering its thirteenth year as a
bi-weekly journal. Managed entirely by students,
who define its policies regarding college events,
the Ubyssey is devoted to presenting the news
correctly and impartially, and at the same time
maintaining   a   page   for    student   opinion    and 24
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
with the Canadian University Press (CUP), and
features exchange news from Canadian and
American colleges. New students are welcomed
with open arms and are urged to try for staff
positions.
The Tillicum is that fact-filled little document
which you are no doubt reading with intense
interest. It is the student handbook, published for
every student, but written expressly for the
Freshmen and Freshettes.
The Directory, the campus "date-book", contains
the addresses and phone numbers of all registered
students. It was compiled mainly to aid men of
the campus in tracking down glamour girls, but
lately some unfeeling people have been using the
book to contact students on campus business. For
business or pleasure, the directory is a "must".
Be sure to hand your name and address in on time.
Formerly, the traditional publication to the
graduating class was the "Totem", a leatherbound
yearbook made to be kept as a record of student
life. The Totem has been in a semi-dormant state
since last year in order to conserve vital materials.
In its place has been published, at the end of the
term, a special Graduation Issue of the Ubyssey
in magazine form, given to students without
charge. The Grad Issue is a pictorial magazine
with accompanying writeups and serves as a
souvenir of one year at UBC.

UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
HISTORICAL SKETCH
In 1890 the Provincial Legislature passed an act
establishing a body politic and corporate named
University in 1902. In the same year Vancouver
progress was made, however, until 1894, when an
Act was passed which permitted the affiliation of
high schools in the Province with recognized
Canadian Universities.
In 1899 Vancouver High School was affiliated
with McGill University in order to provide first
year work in Arts, and took the name of
Vancouver College. First year work in Arts was
offered by Victoria High School when it became
Victoria College by affiliating with McGill
University in 1902. In the same year Vancouver
College undertook the second year in Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating the
Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning
of British Columbia, which in the same year
established at Vancouver the McGill University
College of Vancouver and Victoria College whicli
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
The TILLICUM
43
by an Act establishing and incorporating the
University of British Columbia and repealing the
old Act of 1890-91. This act with its subsequent
admendments, determines the present constitution
of the University.
A site commission, appointed in 1910,
recommended the vicinity of Vancouver and in the
following year the Point Grey site was granted
to the University. The grant now consists of 548
acres at the extremity of Point Grey. The waters
of the Gulf of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University campus. A tract of
some 3,000 acres of Government land immediately
adjoining the site and lying between it and the
City of Vancouver has been set aside by the
Government in order that University revenue may
be provided by sale or lease.
The first Convocation, held on August 1, 1912,
chose Mr. F. L. Carter-Cotton as first chancellor
of the University. In March. 1913, the Lieutenant-
Governor-in-Council appointed as President of the
University, F. F. Westbrook, M.A., M.D., CM.,
LLD. On April 4, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie, the
present chancellor, was elected.
On the death of President Westbrook October
20, 1918, L. S. Klink, Dean of the faculty of
Agriculture, was appointed Acting President, and
on June 1, 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 on the Science building began
at the Point Grey site in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on this building
was not finished until the great student campaign
of 1922.
Students paraded through the streets of town in
the midst of a province-wide drive complete with 44
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
posters, loud speakers, and mass meetings aimed
to bring to light the crowded conditions then
stifling the University at its Fairview "shacks".
The climax of the campaign came when a large
body of students marched to the Point Grey site
and perched on the steel skeleton of the unfinished
Science building.
As a direct result of this drive, work was again
started on the University, and the Science building,
the Library and nine other buildings were
completed and ready for occupancy in the fall of
1925.
The inauguration of the new buildings was held
on October 15 and 16, 1925, on which occasion
honorary degrees were granted by the University
for the first time.
Since that time the Gymnasium, Stadium, and
Brock Memorial Hall have been added to the
University, mainly through the efforts and
enterprise of the student body.
CAIRN CEREMONY
The Cairn Service for freshmen, inaugurated in
1928, has become a tradition at the University.
The Cairn was first set up as a memorial of the
province-wide campaign in 1922, when a group of
TUe TILLK'UM
4.)
enthusiastic students marched from Fairview to
Point Grey in an endeavour to have the university
site moved from the Fairview shacks. The Cairn
itself is situated in front of the Science building
on the Mall and is constructed of rocks gathered
on the grounds. Inside is contained a manuscript
with the signatures of those who participated in
the march.
Each year the freshmen class gather at the Cairn
to pay tribute to the students who were responsible
for the campaign's success.
BOOK EXCHANGE
This bureau operates to exchange second-hand
books between students in the most convenient
manner possible. It is under the supervision of

when it will be open.
Applications for the position of manager and
assistant manager for the book exchange will be
received by council. These positions will be given
to those for whom the remuneration will be the
greatest value.
Book exchange managers and assistants receive
a percentage of total sales, which averages between
$20 and ?30.

one per cent of the enrollment. The student must
have completed at least two years study, with at
least Second Class standing in the second year, be
an undergraduate below the final year, and be
representative in a general way of the student
body.
Through the co-operation of various university
authorities it is provided that exchange students
are exempt from tuition fees which except in

UNIVERSITY HEALTH SERVICE
The University Health Service, located in 306
Auditorium Building, exists to prevent communicable diseases, to render first aid in cases of
accidents   and   sudden   sickness,   and   to   furnish 52
UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.
advice about health matters to the general student
body.
All students entering the University for the first
time must report immediately to the Health
Service, making an appointment for examination.
Students neglecting so to do will be disciplined by
the University Health Committee.
Discovery of Infectious Persons
All cases of 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
All persons reasonably suspected of infectiveness
are excluded from contact with others until shown
to be non-infective or, if shown to be infective,
until the actual termination of such infectiveness.
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.
STUDENT ACCIDENT INSURANCE
During the session 1943-44, members of the Alma
The TILLICUM
Mater Society who have registered as regular
students in any of the long courses and who have
paid the regular student fee will be protected by
Accident Insurance. This coverage will insure
against expenses due to accidental injuries
sustained by members of the Alma Mater Society
while engaged in supervised activities sponsored
by the Society or by the University. Such
activities will include academic pursuits, athletics,
club activities, Women's War Work and social
functions.
REQUISITION SYSTEM
No club bills will be honored by the Students'
Council unless they are covered by a purchase
order from the club business secretary to the Alma
Mater Society. The business houses of this city
have been informed of this ruling and it will be
rigidly observed by Council. All club pins,
sweaters, etc., must be approved by the Students'
Council before they are ordered.
WAR AID COUNCIL
A comparatively new organization on the campus
is the War Aid Council, composed of prominent
students and dedicated to the task of directing a
centralized university war effort. Called together
only two years ago, the War Aid Council has
proved invaluable in boosting UBC's war drives
and co-ordinating all war effort activities.
Numerous money-making functions have been
successful through the planning of this Council,
one of the most notable being the Ambulance
Drive held last year to purchase an ambulance for
tho Red Cross. UBC's war effort has been speeded
up and University Red Cross funds greatly
increased by the efforts of the War Aid Council. 54

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 possibly
welcomes the Freshmen during the initiation
period.
These stag sessions of late years have usually
developed into highly messy affairs and it was
only through the determined efforts of Freshman
leaders that a Frosh smoker was held in the
Spring term last year. As the premises used last
year is still standing, hope is held out for a
coming Frosh smoker.
Frosh Reception—A dance is given about 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.

E-arly in March the club also presents a Spring
Play which is open to the public, and for which
admission is charged.
HiJinx—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. Although 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 apparel, 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.
Musical Society Concert — 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.

FRATERNITIES
Fraternities and sororities are groups of students
with common ideals and a liking for one another,
organized into 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 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
The TILLICUM
57
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.
INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL
Representatives from each of the twelve campus
fraternities form the Inter-Fraternity Council. The
I.F.C. outlines the general policies to be followed
by all local fraternities. During the 1942-43 session
an important amendment was made to the
constitution which permitted the rushing of senior
matric men in their first year in the University.
The I.F.C. gives active support to war charity
drives, teaming with Pan-Hellenic to organize the
annual Red Cross Ball, the proceeds from which
go to the Canadian Red Cross.
In addition to the fall rushing, the fraternities
follow an extensive sports program and participate
in the annual inter-fraternity song fest.
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 58
UNIVERSITY OF B.  C.
sororities have so disregarded the tradition of
almost a century and abolished rushing. 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 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.
PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL
Central governing body of the eight Greek
sororities on the campus is the Pan-Hellenic
Council, with membership consisting of two
representatives from each sorority. The Council
correlates the work of the sororities and watches
over their activities.
Each year the Council gives all-out aid to all
worthy causes on the campus, organizing taggers
for self-denial days and collaborating with the
Inter-Fraternity Council to promote the Red Cross
Ball.
Other activities include fall and spring rushing,
supplying 'Big Sisters' for freshettes, a bowling
league and the annual in I er -fraternity song fest.

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS CO-OPERATIVE
ASSOCIATION
The University Students Co-Operative Association offers residence with a homey atmosphere to
out-oi-town students. An executive, elected from
the members, manages the general business.
Members share the housework, each doing one
chore which does not take more than one half-
hour daily. Excellent dinners are served by a
housemother. The cost of board and laundry
should not exceed twenty-five dollars per month.
Members adopt suitable rules regarding
disturbances during study hours. Assistance,
whenever needed, can readily be obtained from
other students.
Students wishing to enter the Co-op should
apply to the Secretary and must, when applying,
purchase ten shares at one dollar each. These
are returned when the member leaves.

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 have 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 tor a
new site. One of the most and striking of these
student achievements is the modern Brock Hall.
BROCK MEMORIAL BUILDING
Dignified and resplendent in it's botanical setting on the East Mall, 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
students of their day that it was decided to erect
a student Union Building to permanently com-
memmorate 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
Brynelsen with an objective of $30,000, closed at
the end of the session with less than $7,000 contributed. The next two years saw student campaigners Presidents Jay Gould and David Carey
turn their efforts from the Union Building to the
Stadium, a modern concrete building, in October,
193).
In 1938 the dormant Brock Hall    issue received UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
a new lease on life and the campaign began in
earnest. With the promise of $20,500 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
AMS in March 1939, decided to borrow another
$80,000. The total cf these sums, plus a $10,000
donation from the Womens Undergraduate Society, served to retire the outstanding Stadium
bonds and finance the Brock Hall.
Throughout the summer of 1939 Past President
Carson McQuire 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 center
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 and
c^ntructed in such away as to allow enlarge-

PCOMS IN BROCK HALL
In the center of the building is the main lounge,
open at all times to students. Behind this hall
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 the Mildred Brock Room.
On the southern side of the building are the
offices of the Alma Mater Cociety, the headquarters
T      TILLICUM
of the Students' Council and the Employment Bureau. Here, in addition to the general office, are
the offices of the President of AMS and the Treasurer of Council. There is a club telephone in the
corridor, and a Men's Executive Room in the
southeast corner of the floor.
Upstairs en the southern side is the Double Committee room capable of seating 200 people. Clubs
may obtain permission to use the meeting rooms
by applying at the AMS office.
The Ctudents' Council meeting room upstairs
on the southside. The stage room on the north
side is for the use of the Player's club and the
Musical Society when they prepare their pro—
ductions. Beside the Rehearsal room is the Phrateres club room.
In the north basement of the Brock are the
offices' of the Book Exchange, and the Publication
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 Mamook club room,
and the photography room.
UBC STADIUM
A long needed addition to the University is the
Ctadium, on the playing field, built during the
summer of 1937. The main section is of reinforced
concrete with a seating capacity of 1,600 persons.
It is completely up-to-date, containing showers,
chafing rooms, hand ball courts and offices. The
buildinr was constructed with the idea of being
central unit of a modern stadium. Two wooden
bleachers each seat 500. The total, costing $40,000,
was financed by a   bond issue. 64

and the other in honor of the B.C. reinforcing
platoon, "196th Western Universities Overseas Battalion,   C.E.F."
The Sun Dial, with oblong face and engravings
of the Cairn and the Lions, is a familiar object to
all visitors to 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 the museum.
The University Stamp Collection comprises the
postage stamps of Canada and the early British
North American colonies. It contains many stamps
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 opostle of international goodwill.
The Totem Poles, now situated in the Botanical
Gardens, were presented in 1927 by the Alumni
Association. They are from the Musquiam Reserve
Point Grey and are the last two of the tribe. The
Pole on the right is the Capilano Pole, a carving
of the 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.
Through the efforts of Mr. John Ridington, 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 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 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 66

War Work 70
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
WOMEN'S WAR WORK
With each successive year of the war the women
students of UBC have striven to accomplish more
for the War Effort. A fundamental change last
year provided for a compulsory War Work Plan,
which this year has been extended to include two
Edditional courses. Under the plan co-eds spend
two hours weekly on activities chosen from two
major groups, War Work A and B.
Under War Work A, one hour of physical
education is required of each undergraduate
woman. Under War Work B, one hour is spent
working in the Red Cross Room or taking such
war courses as First Aid (St John Ambulance)
or Home Nursing. The other courses which are
open only to students of second, third and fourth
years, are Day Nursery, Motor Mechanics, Map
Reading and Typing.
This year, a University detachment of the
Canadian Red Cross Corps has been organized
under the Women's War Work Plan. Membership
is restricted to upper-class women. Freshettes are
reminded that, after this year, no student will be
admitted to the Corps who has not previously
obtained a St. John Ambulance Certificate in First
Aid.
Definite announcement regarding these courses
will be made early in the term.
Athletics 72
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
ATHLETICS
University athletics exist to prevent the
unhealthy condition resulting from the indoor
work of the student. The object is to train young
and inexperienced athletes. Competent physical
instructors are in charge of an extensive program
of physical education and all students are urged
to attend the classes provided.
There is an opportunity for everyone to take
part in whatever sport he desires, as teams of all
calibres are organized. Places on teams are filled,
without favoritism or prejudice, with the best men.
Those not capable of active physical participation
may obtain positions managing these teams. New
managers are needed and welcomed.
No student is allowed during the session to take
part in athletic competition or games for any team
or organization other than a University team
■without the consent, in writing, of the Men's or
Women's Athletic Association, approved by resolution of the Students' Council. Any student so
doing in violation of this regulation will automatically forfeit all claim to an athletic award
in any sport.
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!

73
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
intro-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
Arts '20 relay held in spring and the Arts '30
Inter-Faculty Road Race held on the campus
in the fall term.
Corresponding to the Governor's Cup in
Women's Athletics is the Spencer Cup. Competitions are held in basketball, swimming, track and
hockey.
Intra-Mural Program
Under the guidance of Mr. Van Vliet and Miss
Moore in co-operation with the Alma Mater
Society, the University has developed an extensive
Intra-Mural program embracing most sports. This
provides for inter-class, inter-fraternity, and
group competitions. Each year more and more
students have taken part in this program.   Be sure 74
UNIVERSITY OF B. C.
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 SPORTS
Despite the fact that the demand on students'
time has resulted in the curtailment of sports
activities on the campus, a full athletic program
is planned this year. The major sports have
temporarily discontinued playing in outside competition, but instead have encouraged competition
from close at hand teams. Saturday afternoons
were so arranged last year that an American
Football loop was set up, including Boeings,
Vancouver College and an Army eleven from the
ack acks. All major sports followed the pattern
of arranging home games and a successful, active
season was the result.
It is expected that with even less time to work
with competition can be arranged so that the
upswing in organized war session sports can be
continued and the basis laid for a return to the
high standards enjoyed in former years.
BASKETBALL
This is now the major
spcrt on the campus, both
rren and women entering
teams in league play.

new recruits it looks as if UBC may again win
the provincial championship.
Men's Intermediate A (Frosh): This is the gang
made up entirely of freshmen. They enter the V
and D league and see plenty of action. Another
team in the same class is Varsity, playing in the
same league as the frosh.
Women's Senior B: These gals play in the city
Cagette League and form the major team
amongst the girls. Last year they won the
Woodward Trophy, which is emblematic of

Tho Ski Club has its headquarters at Schuss Inn,
in the Grouse Mountain Ski Village. An attempt
is being made to organize skiing as a major sport
this year, so all skiers are requested to support

members, but as accommodation is limited, all
persons wishing to use the cabin must put in three
work hikes.
Soccer is a major sport this year, with U.B.C.
entering teams in the Coast League and the
V. and D. League. All games will be played on
Saturday afternoon.
Several assistant managers are needed. Freshmen
are preferred.

ALMA MATER HYMN
Alma Mater, by thy dwelling
There is set the western sea,
Mountains shed their benediction
On the hopes that rest in thee.
Alma Mater, to thy children
[n the spring-time of their years,
Grant the faith that grows from knowledge,
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.

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,
Well beat Victoria Rep so very hard
That there'll be fifteen corpses on the sod,
With a Rah!  Rah!  Rah! 132

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-
Vet naught that time shall faring can e'er remove
Thy memory or thy praise.

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,
[ 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. 134

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.
