back for more degrees and knowledge, and winter students trying for the last time to get through English
200 and French 202. With tennis, swimming and a
hot sun, the campus is a potential resort. Yet the
atmosphere reflects earnest work and serious thought.

EIGHT years ago the campus' favorite man, Dr. N. A.
M. Mackenzie stepped off the train from Pugwash, N.S.
In those years he has extended his affability and erudition from U.B.C. right across Canada again. An international lawyer and a well-known educator, Dr. MacKenzie has made the University a remembered institution
simply because he represented it.

initiative in an atmosphere of freedom that the individual is
likely to mature and develop and become an intelligent, well-
balanced, disciplined citizen.    With this autonomy and freedom,
there is, ot course, responsibility,  both individual and

students of this University on the way in which they have

EVERY year an organization seems to have more and
more problems heaped on its shoulders. In terms of
worry, probably the most harassed group connected with
the University is the Board of Governors. Headed by
Chancellor Sherwood Lett, the Board is directly responsible for ironing out all academic and financial difficulties
that pertain to the university.
The dropping enrollment, from over 9,000 students to
just under 5,500, has been the biggest headache for the
twelve-man Board. This drop, coupled with the demand
for more varied courses and new faculties has forced the
financial budget to be revised constantly.
Throughout last year, frequent and late meetings were
held to discuss the creation of new Pharmacy and Dental
faculties and the replacement of the Commerce and
English huts with permanent buildings. Because of the
tight budget and more pressing needs these problems
were tabled.
Most continual difficulty facing the Board of Governors
is the complicated task of matching the professors' salaries
with the rising cost of living. Even the equipment used
by the teaching staff comes directly under the Board's
The past eight years have been the most fruitful for
the University in the way of construction and faculties,
but the Board is keenly aware of how much still has to
be done. Better than being aware of the situation these
men plan to act.
0 The Board of Governors met frequently to discuss the many academic problems of the university. (Clockwise)  D. J.  Baldwin, M.  K. Caple,

A.M.S. Meeting. President of the Council, Basi petitioned the B. C.
Electric unsuccessfully to lower student bus fares. The Freshman Eligibility ruling and fights with L.S.E. were only ruffles in otherwise uneventful year.
TiE usual squabble between the L.S.E. and the M.A.D.
was the only ripple in an otherwise uneventful year for
Students' Council. Meeting every Monday night, and for
the first time having to pay their own dinners, Council
members dealt with current problems quickly and efficiently.
President Ragbir Basi campaigned actively throughout
the term for an exchange with Russian students. Also
president of N.F.C.U.S., Basi worked hard to keep the
organization strong. In the early spring the B. C. Electric
turned a deaf ear to his pleas for lower bus fares for
U.B.C. riders.
At the beginning of the year Ann Willis was handed
the thankless job of heading a committee to revise the
antiquated constitution. Her work saw its rewards when
all but one recommendation was passed at the Spring
A.M.S. Meeting. As secretary, Ann was also a member
of the controversial five-man elections committee in
Jerry Duclos' budgeting of small clubs brought sharp
criticism from L.S.E. Canny Duclos doled money out
only to clubs which requested it. For the first time the
University's one hundred thousand dollar gym debt was
put on the books.
Denny Silvistrini was unsung hero of the Council,
with the tedious and demanding task of co-ordinating all
University events Silvistrini never faltered. Only serious
doubling came when Thursday's World Cup Rugger game
coincided with a Variety Show.

their respective groups, but there really wasn't much co
ordinating to do. Then there was Homecoming and Frosh

FROSH may be green to the ways of college life but
during their first week on campus they unquestionably
proved their worth. According to tradition, upperclassmen and Engineers "go on a rampage" ducking the green
newcomers to the university. This year, however, the
freshmen "turned the tables" for, as the battle progressed,
they slowly took command and ducked practically every
Engineer in sight.
Another feature of Frosh Week was Club Day. Lured
by loudspeakers  and posters, the curious prospective
members crowded around the colorful displays presented by 35 of the major clubs. Participation in the
annual Cairn ceremony, where newcomers learned a bit
of the history of U.B.C, was another highlight of the
orientation period. The Frosh Smoker, the Big-Little
Sister banquet and "Her Scienceman's Lover" rounded
out the busy week's events. A huge reception was held in
the Armouries where, with ceremony and hand-shaking,
they were officially welcomed into the fold as students. ara

BRITISH COLUMBIA again led all other large universities with 79 per cent of its quota, a total of 2878
donors, but failed to claim the Canadian Inter-Collegiate
Blood Donor Trophy. When handicaps for all universities
were tallied, Mount Allison College of Nova Scotia, with
an enrolment of 600 students, led other campi by at least
four points. In the two blood drives held on the campus
this year, UBC collected nearly 3500 pints.
The blood drive got well under way on February 9, as
a fifteen-vehicle parade roared around the campus at
noon. Pep meets and gags were the agenda for the next
three weeks as the Jokers, fire truck and all, went all out
to liven up the campus. The renowned Squamish Band
also did its bit to help put the drive over the top. With
their new "washtub" bass and thirteen hats they put on a
show that will long be remembered. Another booster for
the drive was the variety of prizes which was offered each
day for only one pint of blood.
Although the drive ran for nearly three weeks, it was
the last day's response that brought up UBC's percentage.
Forestry students, sponsors of the drive, made a desperate, last-minute appeal for donations as both they and
the Engineering students dragged donors bodily to the
Armouries. Professors voluntarily cancelled classes and
led students to the Red Cross clinic.
Before this last day's spurt, however, the response had
been slow. The Red Cross officials felt that it was useless
to remain on campus for the trickle of donors which had
been coming in each day. During the final week of the
drive the clinic closed early for the donations failed to
come in at a reasonable rate.

THE Sixth Annual High School Conference was held
during the last week in February when U.B.C. became
host to delegates from eighty-seven British Columbia high
schools. Students from points as distant as Kaslo, Golden,
Williams Lake and Quesnel came to represent their respective schools.   The purpose of the Conference is to
give highschoolers an opportunity to know the University
in a general way and to discover the courses open to them.
The real thought behind the Conference is to impress
upon prospective students that choosing of a field of work
is as important as the actual studying
of that field. Although the number of
schools represented was greater than
ever before, the committee hoped that
next  year's  representation  be  even

Jack Scott, the committee planned an
extensive, two-day programme. Vocational and extra-curricular discussions
given by faculty and executive members, guided tours of the campus and

THE beginning of spring was marked by the Women's
Undergraduate Society's annual fashion show. Sponsored by Marty's College Shop in the University District,
the latest thing in campus fashions was modeled by fifteen
lovely co-eds. On a flower-banked walk, before an
audience of over two hundred, including men, everything
from sports wear to evening gowns was presented for
Commentator and co-ordinator was Helen Donnely,

f-IIS year the International House Committee has had
a grand degree of success in its functioning. The experiment of the IHC at UBC has produced a real substance.
Various introductory programs have combined to
become an active element on the Campus; an element
which has a rightful claim to a permanent place on the
"periodic table" of the University of British Columbia.
Much of the success is due to the co-operation of the
University Administration, Professor Andrew and Dr.
N. A. M. MacKenzie.
The programme this year has been both full and gratifying. The Canadian Orientation Series started the IHC
events last October. The Series featured five noon-hour
lectures, given by UBC professors, on the different aspects
of Canadian culture. In accordance with the tradition of
other International Houses, national dinners were presented every month at Acadia Camp, IHC's temporary
headquarters. These Sunday dinners represented a wide
range of nationalities—German, Dutch, Polish, Japanese
and Greek.
A hospitality programme was carried out by the International House Association, Vancouver Chapter, which
undertook to entertain foreign students in Canadian
homes. Negotiations were made for a Board of Trustees,
a cohesive force which will handle the Building Funds.
The International House Ball highlighted the activities
and sparked the reactions of both university and non-
university members.
The IHC proudly announces the successful synthesis
of their motto, "That Brotherhood May Prevail". However, without a permanent International House, the
committee feels that the valuable component of International Understanding will soon be destroyed. The
formula for a permanent House has been used by Chicago,
Berkeley, New York and Paris and the IHC pledges its
energies to perfect such a formula at the University of
British Columbia.

TI1HE Women's Residences are the college home for one
1 hundred and fifty-six out-of-town girls who are on the
campus for the first time. These girls come from as far
as Ontario and Quebec in Canada, and from such countries as New Zealand and Czechoslovakia. NFCUS students from such colleges as McGill, Toronto and Carleton
also add to the gaiety and excitement in their new home
where anything is bound to happen.
To create spirit, an inter-dorm competition was put
into practice. Points were also given for attendance at
residence functions, for term marks, and for participation in intramural sports. Residence parties as the fall
dance and the spring formal were the highlights of the
year. During the college term, the girls enjoyed many
exchanges with the different groups on the campus, such
as dances with the Fort Camp and Acadia Camp boys
and with some of the fraternities.
Life at the Women's Residences is so much fun that
the girls who are fortunate enough to reside there have
only one complaint—that they will not be able to return
next year.

THE Phi Delta Theta house claimed the distinction of
being the first on Fraternity Row. Since the completion
of the house on September 1951, the active chapter has
completed the painting of the house after many long work
parties. The Mothers' Club of the fraternity purchased
the furnishings from the proceeds of numerous teas and
Future plans for the house include asphalting the
driveway and parking lot, the latter to double as a basketball court. Grass will be planted in the spring to complete the landscaping work already done.
In the house itself, besides the den, living room, and
chapter room downstairs, there are ten single rooms
upstairs which provide private sleeping and study accommodation for the out-of-town brothers. Excellent meals
provided during the week are appreciated during the weekend when the house mother leaves and the brothers cook
for themselves. An added advantage of staying at the
house is the close proximity to the university, making it
easy for those who get up in time, to get to eight-thirty
lectures. Spare time in the house is taken up with bridge
games, discussions on any topic in general, taking bets on
hockey games, and parties on Saturday night.
This year saw the completion of Phi Gamma Delta's
new chapter house on Fraternity Row. Of modern "Western Canadian" architecture, the house is a three-level
structure built around a central open courtyard.   With

along with invaluable support from the Women's Auxiliary, are making the project a great success. It is significant that in the eleven-month period between January
and November 1951, the home was planned and financed
and the building almost completed.
The top floor consists of a study room and the men's
dorms. A large hall, the living room, dining room and the
kitchen make up the main floor and a lounge and recreation room complete the bottom floor.

AFFILIATED with the University and situated on property adjoining the campus, is the Anglican Theological College. The College was opened in 1929 and supplies
residences for thirty students and members of administrative staff. The purpose of the College is to train men
to become clergy of the Anglican Church. The Principal,
Dr. W. A. Ferguson, not only concerns himself with the
administration but also is personally interested in the life
and work of each student.
Although the College is primarily for the training of
men for the Ministry, students other than those studying
toward a theological degree are accepted as residents
as long as the accommodation permits. However, first
consideration is given to those of the Anglican Communion who, in most cases, are working toward a
diploma of Licentiate in Theology.
Under the genial guidance of the Dean of Residence,
Dr. John Grant, those living at Union College exist as
one big heterogeneous family. Students from several countries maintain the international flavor within the College
that is common to the campus as a whole. Indication
of the variety of interest within this family is the fact that
virtually all the major faculties on the campus have at
least one representative living at the College.
Activities of the residents this year seem to have centered around various forms of rivalry with Anglican
College. This rivalry has been manifested in softball
games, soccer games, ping-pong tournaments, and the
odd unscheduled "raid". Also high on the list of resident activities was the Annual Dance, held in the College
this year on February 20th. There is every phase of
activity ranging from the common room "bull sessions"
to the regular evening chapel services.

TWENTY minutes' walking distance from the academic
centre of the university stand two mighty water towers
and Camp Acadia. The camp is a unique experiment in
university living, providing low cost room and board for
single students, quaint little houses for professors and
married students, and a trailer camp, although the trailers
are slowly disappearing.
The single students number around five hundred, at
a rate of four boys to one girl. Housing for them is in
barrack-like dormitories—boys' and girls' dorms, which,
incidentally, are divided into double and single rooms and
are not full length Iroquois huts with sleeping accommodation ranged along the walls, which seems to be a
fairly common impression.
Meals are eaten in the main camp dining room at
appointed hours and there is a canteen for those in-
between snacks which seem to be such an important part
of student life. The students can get together for a card
game or chat in the common room, or play ping-pong in
the front of the recreation hall and listen to records or
play the pianos in the back section.
Fort Camp is the one place in the world where men
are trying to attain equality with women. Comparing the
men's quarters with the comforts of the new women's
dorms, one cannot be surprised at the agitation for new,
bigger and better accommodations for the underprivileged
Aside from this, life in Fort Camp went on in much
the same way as before. Roy Sadler's able watchdog
committee kept an eye on the quality of the coffee and the
canteen profits. The billiard tables and cues in the recreation hall, patched up as usual at the beginning of the
year, showed a fast rate of depreciation again by the
term's end. Newly installed locks on all rooms insured
privacy but unfortunately detracted from the hitherto
open and free "one family" atmosphere which had so
characterized Fort Camp.

known sight to all those who stay at

OVER two hundred students and recent graduates
received military commissions at the third annual
Tri-Service parade on February 27. Lieutenant-Governor
Clarence Wallace presented the commissions to each
member of the University Naval Training Division, Canadian Officers Training Corps and Reserve University
Squadron in a colorful ceremony held in the armories.
Officers and officer candidates in the three services,
fully shone and polished, were inspected by the Lieutenant-Governor and honored him with a well-executed
march past. The R.C.A.F. Tactical Group Band from
Edmonton provided the military music for the parade.
When the Honorable Clarence Wallace arrived at the
airport on the day of the parade, he was greeted by a
flypast of jet aircraft from the R.C.A.F. base at Sea Island.
Officers receiving commissions marched up to the dais
in groups of four and were each congratulated by the
Lieutenant-Governor as they were presented their commissions. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Lieutenant-
Governor Wallace gave a brief address to the members
of the three services. He was introduced by Dr. N. A. M.

may have been dead tired after the two-hour parade in

FOUNDED thirty-eight years ago as the first organization on the campus, the Players' Club has earned
the reputation for producing high-calibre plays and for
offering to its members valuable experience in all
phases of theatrical production. The club's membership totals sixty, and during the Fall term new talent is
given an opportunity to prove itself in the production
of three one-act plays.
Each year during Freshman week, "Her Scienceman
Lover", Eric Nicol's campus classic about the lives
and loves of the Redshirts, is received with great enthusiasm by the student body.
It was the task of Louise de Vick as president,
together with Tom Shorthouse as vice-president, Alice
Husband as secretary, and Ian Drummond as treasurer
to ensure that the year should prove a successful one
for the club. They were assisted by the executive committee, consisting of Derek Mann, Albert Simpson,
Ron Con and Bob Woodward.
For its fall plays, the club chose three representative
types of comedy: "The Player Queen" by W. B. Yeats,
a comedy of morals, "Ways and Means", a Noel
Coward farce, and "Two Gentlemen of Soho", a
satire by A. P. Herbert.
Under the sensitive direction of John Thorne, the
spring production of "Shadow and Substance", an
Irish play of great beauty by Paul Vincent Carroll, ran
for five nights and was appreciated by both University
and public.
Leading roles in this absorbing production were
taken by Gerry Webb, Doris Chilcott and Bob Woodward.
After the exams were over, the club took this play
on a two-week tour of B. C. Because the U.B.C.
players are the only company to reach the interior,
this annual Players' Club tour is an important event
for many people of the province.

Feature Presentations, has again provided the campus
with its most popular form of entertainment.

not leave the University without some knowledge of
projectors, Filmsoc has also held instruction classes
for their benefit.

produce the annual show, "Dance Club Presents," a
festival which combined all the year's activities.
In constant demand for entertainment, dance clubbers
presented shows for International House, the Pharmacy
basketball dance, and the P.E. Dance Club. Their team

honors by winning second spot.
A new feature of the club this year was the private
instruction of new members, who could make appointments at a time convenient to them.

SINCE 1946, when the Christian Science organization
was established on the campus, it has provided the
students with the opportunity of learning the truth about
Christian Science as taught in the Bible and in science
and health.
The organization maintains a room for the study of
Christian Science in Hut Bl, behind Brock Hall and is
fully equipped with Bibles, Mrs. Eddy's works, and a
lending library. The study room is open daily and all
students are welcome to use its facilities.
The organization held regular weekly testimonial meetings and also presented a noon hour lecture given by
E. Scott of Memphis, Tennessee.

TIE Student Christian Movement is a fellowship of
students who share in the conviction that in Jesus Christ
is found the supreme revelation of God and the means to
a fuller realization of life. It seeks, through prayer, study
and discussion to unite all students who hold the above
conviction and also those who are willing to test it.
Noon hour lectures and study groups were held which
dwelt mainly with Christianity and varied social problems
connected with crime, politics and industry. The full and
varied program presented this year was largely successful
due to the efforts of the Rev. C. Ripley who acted as
general secretary.

TIE Varsity Christian Fellowship is a group of students
united by the common personal experience of the
power of Jesus Christ in their lives. Their two-fold purpose on the campus is best expressed in their motto "To
know Christ, and to make Him known."
In seeking to make Christ known, V.C.F. sponsored
public meetings on the campus, in which the challenge
of historic Christianity was brought to the attention of
their fellow-students by speakers of profound faith and
Among the more important of the regular functions

MAMOOKS, located in the "Greenwich Village" of
Brock basement, established their name as a service
club during the year. More than two thousand banners
and posters poured out from under the brushes and silk
screens of Mamook artists.
One of U.B.C.'s leading clubs, the Mamooks take their
name from the Indian word meaning "service". To the
uninitiated, their basement workshop with its poster-
plastered walls might well seem a place of Bohemian
confusion, but, miraculously, Mamooks seem able to
locate and produce their work whenever it is wanted.
The embryo Toulouse Lautrecs by their advertising
were greatly responsible for the success of events on the
campus; old faithful Pete Lozowski, a senior member of
the club, turned out scores of decorations for floats in
the Homecoming parade, while Norm Kievell, Marilyn
Knox and John Davies did an outstanding job on decorations for the Homecoming Ball.
In October, the campus' two fun-loving clubs were
joined in the hilarious Mamook-Kickapoo wedding.

News of the Mardi Gras was splashed around the

posters, while the publicity that played such a part in the
spring blood drive's smashing success was in good part
due to Barry Baldwin's silk screen work.
Campus elections, faculty balls and banquets, visiting
speakers—the posters you saw for all such events probably sprang from the nimble brushes of such artists as
Dave Forde, Ben Quon, Dick Nann, Pat Crehan, Ken
Farris, Gerry Hodge, Mary Ferrario, Boyd Ivens and
Vee Pridham.
But the busiest beavers of all were the two stalwarts
working behind the scenes: freshette Joan Mclvor and

accounts made it possible for the club to operate smoothly
and to extend the services that it did.

THE Campus C.C.F. Club, organized
for the general purpose of arousing
student interest in politics and spreading party information, successfully
achieved both these aims during the
year. M. J. Coldwell, M.P., national
leader of the C.C.F., and other speakers encouraged much interest in politics. The club publication, the
"Matteotti", plus books purchased
for the library, provided students with
complete information on the C.C.F.
The Student Liberal Club, active
for seven years, received recognition
for their work on campus by being
accepted into the Young Liberal Association. Guest speakers such as
Hon. James Sinclair, Minister of
Fisheries, highlighted the club's program. Club members argued political
questions in the campus mock parliaments and inter-political club debates.
A club newspaper kept the membership up to date on club activities.

Vice-president Peter Henslowe conducted a packed

Thomas arranged inter-faculty debates for the Legion
Cup, and Jeff Turner chaired the Mock Parliament steering committee.
Maurice Copithorne and John Loewen acted as secretary and treasurer respectively.
In the noon-hour debates held regularly every Thursday noon many important issues were settled with finality:
it was established that Engineers are not only skilled, but
educated, most of the voters at this meeting being of
course the educated engineers themselves.
It was also decided that religion is still useful, although
some may regard this conclusion with a fishy eye.
Campus politicians decided not to nationalize the
banks when they become political leaders of the country.
And, finally, in a most significant debate, Jeff Turner
and Joe Nold wrangled over the philosophical implications of Pogo as compared with those of Little Orphan
Annie.  Pogo, backed by Nold, won hands down.
Under Jeff Turner's organization, four Mock Parliaments were staged during the year.
The purpose of these was to enable the campus
political clubs to debate questions of principle on which
they differ under conditions similar to those in the House
of Commons.

THE University session 1952-53 saw the painful convalescence of the Ubyssey after several austerity years
and one lively season with Les Armour. For the first
time in several years reporters flowed regularly through
the Brock Hall basement and the paper was produced
without its usual conspicuous holes and special "memo"
For excitement students watched the antics of Al
Fotheringham and the Engineers. Two bouts with the
Sciencemen kept readers interested in the human side
of their newspaper.
Joe Schlesinger, a former AP writer in Prague, and a
Senior Editor last year on the paper, became Editor-in-
Chief. Having had only one year's experience on the
Publications Board, Schlesinger devoted all his time
keeping the paper running smoothly. Under his guidance
the Ubyssey came second in awards given to the best all-
round college paper.
When the first issue of the paper went to press few old
staffers were left to manage affairs in the Brock basement.
Sports writer Brian Wharf, C.U.P. Editor Sheila Kearns,
and Directory man Harold Berson, took over as Senior
Editors. Gerry Kidd moved across the hall from the
Totem office to fill the position of Executive Editor.
Myra Green, a Senior Editor the year before, took over
the responsibilities of City Editor. Elsie Gorbat was
made Managing Editor, later became Feature Editor.
Later in the Fall, Kearns, Kidd and Berson were forced
to resign, but with a full program aimed at training new
reporters the Ubyssey managed to fill the three empty
positions and present three readable papers each week.
Ubyssey-trained reporters Pete Pineo, Ron Sapera and
Peter Sypnowich took on desk positions while Ed Parker
from the McGill Daily became Executive Editor.

dragged down to Birk's and chained to the clock. While
Engineers enthused over their capture, bored students
paid little attention to ineffectual Red-Shirts.
During Homecoming, Sciencemen, playing for bigger
stakes, kidnapped Editor-in-Chief Schlesinger. The editor
was brought to the football game in a bear cage, but
enthusiastic Pubsters rescued him at half-time after a
brawl in front of the bleachers.
A variety of columnists brought forth a battery of

to find fault with campus weekly happenings.
Tom Franck, author of "Plugged Nickle", took a
crack at everything, from campus snobs to Canadian
history. Sports columnists Al Frotheringham and Sports
Editor Bill Hutchinson spent their time slamming the
administration and each other.
During the Christmas holidays Editor Schlesinger represented the paper at the Canadian University Press
Conference in Montreal.   Here the Ubyssey placed third
in the standings for the Bracken editorial trophy and
narrowly missed the Southam trophy presented to the
University newspaper with best news coverage.
A new precedent was set by Schlesinger when he
decided to take a leave of absence from his position and
to run for A.M.S. presidency. Executive Editor Ed
Parker took his place during his absence. Although no
Pubster had ever run previously for a Council office,
Schlesinger finished a close second.
The Ubyssey finished the year with what many readers
consider its best effort, the "Goon" edition. The issue
was a take-off on two daily, large circulation newspapers

TOTEM editor Allan Goldsmith finally managed to get
the book out. Goldsmith tried to break tradition, but
the book came out late again.
Different from previous years the Totem didn't lose
$3,000.00, it lost only about $300.00. This was not the
fault of the Totem staff, however.
Early in the year it was noticed that the book paid
over a thousand dollars in federal sales taxes. Since the
editor was a lawyer he thought he could beat the government. So the Totem Yearbook was transformed into
the Totem Quarterly, the U.B.C. "literary magazine"
—three issues, eight pages each, and one issue 240 pages.
Eight copies of the first issue were printed, and government approval asked for. Unfortunately, the government
beat Goldsmith and the eight copies cost eighty dollars.
But, as luck would have it, one month later the
Minister of Finance gave Canada and the Totem a
"social dividend" and exempted all college yearbooks
from tax.
In the fall John Banfield started things off by giving a
sales talk to practically every one of U.B.C.'s 5300
students as they came through the registration line up. 0 Smiling John Banfield hounded

Sixteen hundred books were sold, but there was some
suspicion that cute Sheila Radcliffe of the A.M.S. office
staff sold most of the books to the men. Banfield's
success with the co-eds was uncertain.
While the division editors were trying to puzzle out
Goldsmith's editorial styles, Greg de Montrieve pounded
the streets to produce more advertising than the Totem
had ever seen before.
The difficulties started early. The grad photos again
caused trouble, and hordes of unhappy graduates stormed
into the Totem office. Eventually most of the pictures
were sorted, but many would find someone else's name
under their picture.
As usual, either the subjects or the photographer
missed their appointments. Even the weather didn't cooperate, and there was no snow for the winter scenes.
Finally the last copy was turned in, the last page
proofs were ok'd, and the staff held their breath as the
book was bound. Then, at last, the Pub. gave birth to
its 3-pound bouncing book.

RESPONSIBLE for the success of the Totem were the
photographers. Working lunch hours, lecture hours,
and nights the five pixies turned in over 2000 snaps for
the book.
When Editor Goldsmith dusted out the office to begin
another session of Totem editing he found only two
photographers were left from last year. A notice in the
Ubyssey brought six more camera fiends and everything
looked rosy. One by one the new pixies dropped away
until a count in early February revealed only six stalwarts left.
A new job of Photography Director was taken over by
Scienceman Bob Kendrick. Kendrick settled all disputes
about dark room lockers and handed out supplies.
Stolen from the Ubyssey, Hux Lovely, a paid photographer from downtown, proved to be the biggest help.
Hux was forced to stretch his contracted two hours on
the campus to nearly five to please all section editors.

0 Third season on Pub., Joe Quan gave
a professional touch to all his shots. 0 In an attempt to wrench stories for Wyyern from unwilling students
Gait Elkington met disillusionment.
PROBABLY unknown to 90% of the students on the
campus, two people attempted to produce a sorely
needed literary magazine in the fall of '52. Not realizing
the U.B.C. students' abhorrence of writing short stories
and poems, Gait Elkington and Priscilla Wankelyn set out
to obtain material to be put into a magazine they affectionately, but prematurely, named Wyvern.
^hre ^Jriede.e
With Priscilla as editor and Gait as managing editor,
the two were able to gather together enough money for
the project. Appearing before Student Council three
times, Gait explained the University's need for a literary
periodical and won Council over sufficiently to get funds
to build on. The rest of the money came from the Publications Board, fraternities, and private gifts. So far
everything was fine.
It was planned to make the magazine 40 pages long,
filled mostly with printed matter, but relieved by scattered
pen and pencil drawings, colored pictures, and even the
odd joke.
Gait and Priscilla sat back to watch the contributions
flood in. One month passed, another, and yet another.
Absolutely nothing. Finally a few pieces trickled in. But
when the time came to make up the magazine only three
contributions were printable, and the others, as Gait put
it, were "downright dull".
At last admitting that the much-talked-about student
apathy was an actuality, the aspiring editors gave up.
Shaking their heads, they reluctantly returned the money
and faded in with the rest of the logy 5500.

THE handbook of Engineer and Artsman alike, the
Student Directory once again made its appearance
on the campus. Ignoring the plea of a large male
group to print the telephone numbers of the girls in
bold face type, Editor Harold Berson had to contend
himself with reproducing the Book as it had been in
previous years.
In the final two weeks last September, Berson, a
second year Arts student, compiled the 5500 names
and addresses completely without help. After the
completion of this mammoth task he proceeded to
type and proofread every page of the book by himself.
The Directory, as well as being a handy guide for
Saturday night, for the first time contains all the
necessary information from where to find the Girls'
Common Room to the complete A.M.S. constitution.
At the back of the Handbook are lists of the presidents of every Club and Greek letter Society.
However, reading two hundred and eighty pages
of closely printed matter affected Harold so adversley
that instead of remembering Hamlet's soliloquy on
the Christmas exam he could only see names and addresses swimming in front of him.
Harold was forced into the cold world. But if
you'd like to get in touch with him just look in The
0 Harold Berson leafs through the over five thousand names and addresses
that he typed by himself for the Directory.
71 The greatest conversation piece of
the campus, athletic activity provides
the source of many of our arguments,
special general meetings, tears and
cheers. Often on the defensive against
other activities, it has still provided one
of the most important sources of spirit
and pride in our university. In addition,
through over 60 types of activity it
gives relaxation and exercise to nearly
all of the students, providing the foundation to effective learning.

0 Women's Athletic Directorate, comprised of Jan Crafter, Intramural
manager; Dree Stewart, swimming coach and treasurer; Janie Wright,
vice-president and W.U.S. representative; Mary Harrison, swimming
manager; Annie Marie Leuchte, ski manager; Jean Hood, president;
Marilyn Matchett, secretary, and Joy Mounce, enjoyed a successful
season and accomplished much.
WOMEN'S athletics had an excellent year supporting
both major and minor sports. The representatives on
the directorate were the managers or coaches of all teams
on campus. Included in the group was Miss M. Henderson, the advisor, who helped the girls decide on policy
and pecuniary matters.
Many major issues were decided in the Board Room of
Brock Hall every other Thursday evening, and although
differences did arise between the managers of various
sports, they were quickly patched up and made satisfactory to all parties. Led by efficient Jean Hood, a fourth
year Phys. Ed. student, W.A.D. carried on a very successful program.
Included in this was the joint W.U.S.-W.A.D. Big and
Little Sister Banquet which was enjoyed by all and was
also considered one of the best ever.
At the time of writing the Spring Award Banquet has
not been held but the advance ticket sales show that this,
too, will be well attended by the campus women.
The Intramural program has improved greatly since
last year and the growing number of participants proves
that the year has indeed been a great success.

THE Ostrum plan went into effect last year and was so
greatly appreciated by the campus athletes that it will
be continued for another year. The Men's Athletic
Directorate, headed by Commerceman Gerry Main,
proved invaluable in the settling of the entire sports
A giant project was suggested to the M.A.D. at the
Fall General Meeting that the University withdraw from
the Evergreen Conference and compete against the U's
in Canada. It was pointed out that the money needed to
finance this type of program was more than the students
would be financially able to cope with, but the body
trying to promote the scheme has not yet given up trying
to put it into effect. U.B.C. did so well in the Evergreen
Conference matches, however, that it would be inadvisable to drop out from it at this inopportune moment. If
the University is to enter the conference at all she must
improve the calibre of several teams. If she withdraws,
on the other hand, it will leave the teams who are worthy
of better competition out in the cold.
Under the direction of Peter Lustig, next year's President, the body will carry on, as usual, capably and efficiently and, without a doubt, will do an excellent job.
0 Men's athletics functioned adequately on a limited budget and, under
the capable leadership of President Gerry Main, settled the differences,
both financial and otherwise, with relatively few squabbles. The Directorate included: Peter Lustig (1953's future president), Geoff Bruce, Gerry
Main (president). Bill Popowich, S. Siew. In the back row are: Bob Kirk-

ALTHOUGH only one shell completed the season in
Crew, the University Rowing Team was judged to be
the second best on the Pacific Coast. Coach and trainer
Frank Reid brought the experienced boys up and beyond
their previous standards and diligently worked on the
newcomers so they were on a par with their mates by the
time competition began. Every day found the prospective
hopefuls down at Coal Harbour working out and U.B.C.
managed to board two crews at the first part of the season.
The Lightweight Team won the Egg Cup race against
Oregon State but soon after disbanded due to lack of
interest and competition.
The Varsity Crew did remarkably well in the Olympic
Trials, placing second to the Toronto Argenots back east.
They lost the race by less than two lengths and came
eleven seconds behind the all-time world record. This
was a near heartbreak for the U.B.C. Crew, who narrowly
missed the opportunity of representing Canada at the
1952 Olympic Games. In this event were the Argenots,
U.B.C, Hamilton Leanders, Ottawa, and St. Catharines,
who placed in that order respectively.
Six universities entered the race for the Helms Trophy
at Newport Beach, California. Included in the race were
the Golden Bears, who trounced U.B.C, who, in turn, did
a turnabout and won the Consolation Trophy. The cup
which U.B.C. lost out on was eventually taken by the
group who had previously beaten them; consequently,
U.B.C. is thought by many to be second only to the
University of California.
Cox Jerry Rendell is to be commended for his good
judgment and excellent timing. He kept the co-ordination of the crew and called the strokes very well in respect
to his crew and the weather.
Manager Bob Brodie did some fantastic book juggling
and stretched the finances to make "a little go a long way".
The order the Crew took in the shell was:
Bow, John Warren; 2nd, Doug Holbrook; 3rd, Andy
Smail; 4th, Sel Fox; 5th, Henry Castillou; 6th, Glen
Smith; 7th, John Drinnan; Stroke, Hank Malcolm.
These boys should be commended for a good job
well done.

rilHE University Soccer team started
their season by losing five straight
games, winning one, and tying another. In the new year, however, the
team rallied and proceeded to take
seven games and to tie one, which
brought them from the bottom spot
in the league to fourth place. Obviously the pre-Xmas showing was
no indication of what was to come,
as U.B.C. ended the season with the
best goal average in the league.
Standout for goals scored was Bud
Dobson, who pulled his teammates
out of many tight spots when it was
felt that all was lost. Dick Mathews
joined the Soccer squad when the
football season ended and much of
the success of the team was due to
his expert manipulation of the ball.
Don Renton, a letter man, again
proved his worth to the Soccer boys
by using his better - than - average
sports ability to U.B.C.'s advantage.
It was goalie Ernie Kuyt, however,
who was far and away the best acquisition of the year. He, along with
the able sportsmanship of Alec Reid,
brought laurels on this hard-working,
but little lauded, team.

reason may be, the Varsity football

One solution, think some interested spectators, is to withdraw from
the Evergreen Conference as the fans
do not like to see U.B.C. splattered
all over the field before the game is
over, or even at that time. However,
taking this drastic step merely to satisfy the onlookers' ego would jeopardize the position of all sports in the
Conference. In addition to this, the
players themselves feel that they cannot improve if pitted against worse
teams than those in the league which
they now play.
Football is one of the few sports on
the campus which pays its own way.
This knowledge came as a surprise to
many students who thought that it
was a money-losing proposition. The
revenue from the profit made from
gate receipts for football games
finances many of the minor sports
on campus.
The most interesting game of the
year was undoubtedly the game
played against Western Washington
in Bellingham. Many supporters came
across the border to watch the team
on foreign ground and, although
U.B.C. lost the game 50-0, the fans
were proud to see the game and

of the year. As the Birds won this game last year it
was disheartening to lose it, as both the team and the
spectators wanted the alumni to see a good game to start
off Homecoming Week-end. It was a good game, discounting the score, and at half time Ragbir Basi, president of the A.M.S., presented Judge A. E. Lord with the
Great Trekker Award.
The crowds cheered U.B.C. on, and whether the game
was won or lost, the spectators still enjoyed them for the
crowds got bigger every Saturday. The boys on the team
tried hard. They get a lot of credit for that.

THE Rugger squad of 1952-53 can only be described
as "The Greatest Team Ever to Play on the Campus".
Miracles were due every time the team ran onto the
field, and the fans were never disappointed. Although
the sports year, on the whole, was the best exhibited for
many years, this team was never over-rated. Winners
of the World Cup, the McKecknie Cup and the Miller
Cup, the Rugger boys scored over 200 points and had
only 40 points scored against them in the entire season.
Sparkplugging the Blue and Gold Rugger team was
one of the greatest competitive players ever to don a
U.B.C. uniform. He was Danny Oliver, captain and
scrum-half of this remarkable team.
An example in team play was exhibited by the three
line—Bill Whyte, Ross Wright, Gerry Main, John
Newton, and George Puil.
Coach Albert Laithwaite, who has been mentor of
the team for six years, outdid himself on this squad, and
deserves more than a little credit for a job well done.
Three Old Country players supplied much needed
fight to the scrum. These were Bob "The Toe" Morford
and Derek Vallis, England, and Bill Mulholland from
Scotland. No one was more surprised than the former
when he changed from a "a bum one day to a hero the
next". This enterprising sportsman kicked all three goals
to win the World Cup from California by three points.
The most psychic person on the campus undoubtedly is
Al Laithwaite, who, while sitting on the bench watching
the final game, casually predicted to an onlooker that
Bob would kick the winning goal.
The final game scheduled was on March 26 when
Varsity played the touring Queen's squad. Our boys
lost the game by only nine points, and proved that they
were well up on the list in the field for recognition in
world rugby.
However, it is Trainer Johnny Owen who, the boys
agree, deserves the credit. His taping and patching
turned many a defeat into a victory.

capable Hugh Payne, the second team did better
than was hoped for. There were several East
Indian players on both teams who bolstered the
morale and aided teamwork.
IN the past year the Senior Varsity Team played eleven games,
of which seven were won, three
lost and one tied. After losing the
first game to the East Indian side,
Varsity proceeded to win six consecutive games and earned the
reputation as being the strongest
team in the league. During this
period, when the team was at its
peak, more than seven University
players were chosen to play in a
match between the respective
mainland teams. Varsity's hopes
of finishing the league on top,
however, were shattered by the
inability to field a full team in the
remaining crucial games, and by
the failure of the forward line to
take advantage of the many scoring opportunities.
In contrast to the first team,
U.B.C. recovered from a series of
defeats which would have disheartened many an outstanding sports-
man, and notched up several
victories when the season got
underway. U.B.C.'s final position
in the league would have been
much higher had the boys settled
down earlier. As it turned out, this
team finished near the bottom, but
as it was composed mainly of
novices, this is understood.
B. S. Jawanda, captain of the
Varsity team, deserves a medal for
his leadership and constructive
plays throughout the season. He
was ably assisted by the brilliant
stickwork of Dave Hallet. The
goalward dashes of Peter Sowes,
the outstanding defensive work of
Peter Combes and Guy Hardyte,
and the sound supporting play by
the other members of the team
helped Varsity come so close to
winning the trophy. Spectacular
saves by Harry Preston once again
justified his being selected as the
best goalie in the league.

MUCH of the success of the 1952-53 Ice Hockey Team
can be attributed to the masterful coaching and
guiding of Famous Frank Frederickson who returned
to guide the team after an absence of two years. Frank,
along with the able assistance of Physical Education
Instructor Dick Mitchell, brought the U.B.C team to
the point where they almost attained the heights of the
championship teams of two years ago.
Birds lost eight, won eight, and tied two games in the
Commercial League and lost out in making the finals
by only one point. Although heartbreaking, this factor
gave the pucksters a chuckle when they remembered how
they were nearly ousted from the league earlier in the
Goalkeeping was the major worry and, even after the
return of last year's stalwarts, Bill Olson and Don Anderson, the Birds did not hit their stride until late in the year.
The team was greatly strengthened by the addition of
bearded Jim Fraser as goalie and not since the days of
Don Adams has U.B.C. had such an oustanding man.
Steve Grizschuch once more led the scoring through his
heady stick-handling ability. Captain Gunner Bailey and
newcomer Don Haworth along with Steve provided the
scoring punch all season. "Little Don" is the fastest
winger in U.B.C. for an age, and his hustle and back
checking were the traits which almost put the Birds into
the finals.
Young Pete Hume, finishing third in team scoring,
had an excellent season and missed a three-goal hat-
trick in many of the games. Teaming up with poke-
qheck artist Mike Giroday, Cliff Frame, an outstanding
defenceman from Trail, kept all opposing forwards a
safe distance from the goal.
University of Alberta for the second year swept a
two game series in Edmonton and thus retained the
Hamber Cup. Due to lack of funds the Birds were able
to take only twelve men on the trip and left their two
star centre men at home. Next year the Blue and Gold
will be host to the Alberta squad and the returning team
will be out to regain the coveted trophy. With the
support and encouragement of fans they'll win it.

0 Skiiers look victorious after placing third in the
meet. Anne Marie Leutche, Sheila Graham, Yvonne
Legace and Sue Rae smile happily.
THE Women's Ski Team found it
very difficult to obtain participators at the beginning of the
season. However, by the time the
team was picked there were three
skiers who far outdistanced their
mates both in form and in speed.
Coach Anne-Marie Leutche
gave the girls the pointers necessary for racing and the results
showed that they certainly had
what it took to bring the honors
to U.B.C.
Yvonne Legace, who last year,
came second to Canada's Olympic
entry, placed third in the competition at Stevens Pass. As this was
her first race this year she did even
better than was hoped for.
Sue Rae, the team's only freshman, placed 12th in the same race,
and is an up-and-coming threat to
all skiers in her next events.
Sheila Graham could not participate in previous years due to a
broken leg, but she placed 20th in
the field of 27. As this was her first
racing meet in two years, her coach
and team-mates were amazed and
U.B.C. placed third in the meet
but second among the Universities
as the University of Washington
copped both first and second place.

AFTER two weeks of training at Rossland the team
entered its first meet. George Merry, coach and a
member of Canada's Olympic team, led U.B.C. in the
slalom and placed second. He repeated his excellent performance the next day in the fast, rough downhill race.
Ron McRae, Pat Duffy and Rod Caple also did well.
This race was more difficult than it at first appeared by
the fact that the top half of the course was bathed in
sunsine and the lower half in clouds.
Ted Hunt paced the jumpers' section, which was composed of Dick Anderson and Jack Hamilton, in this and
in all the other meets. The list of results for the first ten
places in the jumping read, with the exception of Ted
Hunt's name, like a Norwegian telephone directory. This
was the case all year, as several of the Universities in the
States had imported exchange students who are jumpers
of Olympic calibre.
The second meet of the year was held at Wenatchee,
where the snow was icy and thin. The most interesting
event of this meet was the cross country which had to be
run twice. The reason for the mix-up was simply because
the officials had not marked the course clearly and most
of the racers got lost. People were passing one another
going the opposite way which, though amusing to those
not racing, was, nevertheless, very annoying to those who
finished the run with a good time. Banff was the scene
of the final tournament of the year. Nine ski teams, representing the leading Universities of the Northwest,
entered the meet. George Merry, exhibiting his usual
superb form, led the U.B.C crew who placed fourth in
total points. George won both the slalom and downhill
events, Ted Hunt and Dave Gunn placed well in the
cross country, and Dick Anderson and Ted outdid themselves in the jumping. MacRae placed seventh in the
slalom and sixth in the downhill.
Other than the ski meets the team sponsored a Christmas trip for enthusiasts. Twenty-five people on campus
joined the fun and had wonderful weather for their trip
to Red Mountain at Rossland.
Although the skiing teams are publicized but little,
those who turn out are the best. If the team does as
well next year as they did this, they will deserve high
0 Yvonne  whizzes  through  the  slalom  with  excellent  form  and
good time.

THIS year has been outstanding for
the members of the Varsity Outdoor Club. Their cabin, on which
each member has worked so industriously is, at the time of writing,
almost complete. The members of
the club as well as their friends are
able to take themselves away from
the city to hie away up the mountain
where all can stay overnight for a
very nominal fee.
The events which the club has
sponsored have been numerous, but
one factor has continued throughout
the functions. This is success, the
keynote of enjoyment of every party,
and the V.O.C.'ers have enjoyed
every function from the Box Lunch
Tea dance to the hilarious Masquerade.
V.O.C. is in a peculiar predicament. Not being a member of either
the   Athletic   Directorates   or   of
L.S.E., it has to function on a
budget supplied by the members.
Until it can be registered directly
under the A.M.S., the V.O.C. will
not be able to receive a large enough
grant from the University to carry
on independently. However, this
does not daunt the staunch members for they know that in the near
future they will get their rightful
position under the A.M.S.
Almost all of the club's events
are parties in some type of sport.
The ice skating party was, perhaps,
the most enjoyable, and the spills
and bruises failed to throw the inexperienced skaters.
This year again the V.O.C. will go
to Garibaldi after exams for a week
of rest. Their rest? Hiking, skiing,
and lots of fun. This is one of the
largest and most energetic clubs on

11HE Thunderbird basketball squad started the year off
with a bang by winning nine exhibition games and
losing only three. In the opening game the Birds dumped
Eilers 56-62, and later defeated the Cloverleafs to give
U.B.C. the supremacy of the Lower Mainland League.
In a pre-Conference game with the Vikings the boys of
the Blue and Gold won out by 22 points. Mount Vernon
A-A.U. team, composed mainly of "Ex-Washington
Huskies", bowed to U.B.C. in a 59-57 decision.
Just before Christmas, due to the strain of oncoming
exams, the Birds slipped into a mild slump and lost both
to Eilers and the Western Washington team in the Totem
On the week-end preceding the Conference the Birds
wrapped up their pre-season schedule by beating Seattle
Pacific Falcons twice and trouncing the Mount Vernon
team for a second time.
In Conference play the Thunderbirds produced their
first win in two years by defeating Western Washington
74-63. They also won out over St. Martins Rangers, but,
unfortunately, this did not count in the Conference standing because St. Martins had not yet received full recognition.
Birds came very close to a second Conference win from
the highly rated Whitworth Pirates, but ended up on the
short end of a 55-52 score.
The strong defensive play, for which the Birds were
noted, was led by Ernie Nyhaug. Ernie, who played
centre, was also the top rebounder on the team.
John McLeod, 6'6" forward, was the highest scorer,
and had an average of 14 points per game racked up to
his credit. John ended up with the seventh highest point
rating in the Conference, which is amazing as he also
committed the lowest number of fouls in playing time.
The first string guards were Brian Upson and Dan

It was very difficult to choose the players for this
top flight team and there was little or no difference
between the first and second teams.
Jim Carter, centre forward, played his best games on
the road and was hook shot ace of the team.
Buzz Hudson always pleased the crowd and his teammates with his aggressive ball stealing and, consequently,
was given most of the difficult defensive assignments.
The J. V. basketball team showed improvement as time
went on. Hustling along in the middle of the season, they
managed to secure a play-off berth, but were quickly
knocked out by the Cloverleafs. Although the team lost
more games than they won, the team spirit was excellent,
and coach Dick Penn did a good job of training the
inexperienced ball carriers.
After a poor season the Braves made the semi-finals.
The Vancouver "Y" took two straight games to knock
them out of this position which ended the season for the
Junior basketball team.

THE University Women's Swim Team started
out with high hopes, and ended on the same
tone. Nothing was accomplished by the girls,
as the tableau which was to have been entered
in the Provincial Championships was not complete at the time, March 7th. The girls had
numerous practices both at Graham's and the
Crystal Pool. Although bathing suits were
bought, the show never went on. Lack of time
and talent was the cry from the coach and
manager, but there were five long months to
put in time at the pools. As this was the only
event the women's team takes part in, the
spectators at Varsity never knew a team existed.
Perhaps it's just as well, but it is a shame that
the better swimmers were forced to "hide their
lights under a bushel". Next year the team
hoped for better success.

Meet was not, contrary to expectations, taken
by U.B.C, it does not mean that the finmen
made a poor showing. On the contrary, the
meet was won by only two points at the end of
the diving.
Flashy Ken Dolan, an all-round athlete and
an excellent gymnast, again proved his worth
in the diving and thus gained the team much-
needed points in the final reckoning.

was "discovered" in the Intramural Meet while
swimming for Zeta Psi. In this meet he came
first in the breast stroke, surprising himself, his

0 Bronze Act, most outstanding feature in the Phys. Ed. show, was traditionally presented by members of the Gym Club. Act, as usual, was very
effective, but performers hurried off back stage after it was over to scrape
off gold paint. In the pictures above the natives are offering a girl for sacrifice because a white girl on the island has committed an action regarded as
taboo. Dree Stewart, as the island girl, found it difficult to keep motionless
during the show.
MO Slutsky, president of the Gym Club, did an excellent
job in promoting spirit with the apathetic students at
football games, ice hockey meets and the like. The members of the club practised in the gym in every spare
moment. Late in the year one of the girls in the club was
so enthusiastic on the trampoline that she caught her
finger in the net and was unable to do any activity until
the end of the term.
Best athlete in the group was Ken Doolan, who was
Gymnastic Champion of B. C. last year. Ken found his
talents helped him in his diving and so did both sports as
they complemented each other in physical activity.
Members of the club took the feature spots in the
annual Phys. Ed. show, Hohomalimali. Included in their
program was work on the parallel bars, the high bar, the
horse, trampoline, rings, box and the mats.
Double flips off the springboard was the best individual
act for all students. This was the most breathtaking part
of the show as the timing had to be perfect to prevent
Al Borthwick was another outstanding performer whose
will power while doing his acts was envied by many better
performers whose courage did not fail, but whose will to
do the difficult activities did.

good tumblers. Although not much is heard about this
organization, it is a very active group.

TiE Badminton Club had a relatively successful season although
membership was down considerably
from previous years. The reason for
this slacking off is uncertain, but it
could be that the group which has
belonged to the club has made the
newcomers feel somewhat like interlopers. Then again, in the new Gym
arises another problem. The basketball standards hang out so far that
there is not adequate room on the end

play. Even with these conditions,
however, the club has carried on quite
well and managed to come through
most of the tournaments with flying
Most outstanding player in the club
is Ken Noble, a freshman, who, before
coming to University had won many
tournaments in the City Leagues. Ken
was sent back east by the funds which
had been raised for such a purpose,
and was entered in the Canadian
Championships. He fared well, managing to win many of his matches, but
lost out in the final count to an expert.
As this is Ken's first year in this
group, it can be stated that he will be
at the top in two years at the most.
There were two outstanding girls
in the club who proved that brains,
beauty, and brawn can be very attractively combined. These were Julia
Coppens and Carol Stanton. Both
played for the "honor and glory of
U.B.C." and also were strong foils for
one another in practise play.
Ho Hit Po, a powerful player, was
known best for his smashes which
were next to impossible to recover.
He strengthened the team by his

Joy Mounce, the club's representative on the Woman's Athletic Directorate, co-ordinated matches and did
all in her power to encourage novices
to join this interesting club.
It could not be helped, but U.B.C.
was entered in a league too strong for
the players; consequently won few
matches. The experienced players
did their utmost to keep up the
standard of play which was present a
few years back, but the competition
had become better and U.B.C. had
not become any stronger.
Although the fee for joining the club is only $5.00,
play was limited to Thursday nights, and students belonging to other organizations felt they did not wish to spend
time playing when they should be studying. The Gym
was in use every night, however, and switching times was
unsatisfactory to those who kept Thursday open for
this purpose.
Late in the year the Badminton Club sponsored a
tournament which was very successful, and, because of
the overwhelming response in regards to entries, will, in
all likelihood, be a feature attraction in the following
It is to be hoped that there will be more members in
this group next year as there is ample time and opportunity to play both in the City League and with members
of the club. The instruction on how to play is invaluable
as it is given from top-flight players in Vancouver.

undoubtedly been outstanding and
should do well in the years to come,
as it is a rapidly growing club.

AS the 1953 Cricket season has not yet begun this is a
resume of the past summer's matches. The team had
a relatively successful season after gaining a promotion
from the "B" to the "A" division. The team, although
made up primarily of undergraduates, was bolstered by
a few graduates.
Varsity ended the season unspectacularly in sixth place
out of eight, although the boys of the Blue and Gold
caused many upsets during their play. Most outstanding
was their remarkable defeat of the then unbeaten North
Shore team who eventually became the league winners.
In the team were many newcomers from the West
Indies, whose skill in the sport helped both the oldsters
and novices to play more skilfully.
Chuck Siew played extremely well all season, and his
undying enthusiasm was a spark of hope to the oft-times
discouraged squad. Stan Glasgow, an all-round athlete,
also kept up interest in the team and encouraged them in
their frequent disheartened states.
The year was very disappointing to the experienced
players, but it looks decidedly more promising for the
future as newcomers are now more able to "carry the
ball" and aid the team in placing among the top three
this year.

IS forty-four teams turned out to
take part in the Intramural program this year the competition was
keen and several records were broken
during the course of the year. The
Intramural Managers Association,
headed by Neil Desaulniers, decided
to withdraw boxing and wrestling
from the program and substitute tennis. Although the former sports drew
the crowds, it was decided to drop
them in the interests of safety since
there was a lack of good equipment.
The sports season began with volleyball which continued until late in
November. Meds won a hard-fought
battle with the Betas, who chased
them to the finish. Kyle of Pre-Med,
who later joined the track team, won
the Cross Country, with V.O.C. taking the second and third spots. In the
ping-pong the Engineers collected
enough points to take first place,
although the Phys. Ed. and Fiji players took the singles and doubles championships.
In badminton, the Engineers beat
the Meds in a closely contested match.
Perhaps the most spectacular meet
was swimming, where Zeta Psi took
all the honors, breaking three records,
to scorch the Kappa Sigs 33-11. The
soccer league was discontinued due
to the lack of time, so as a result it was
called a four-way tie. The Phys. Ed.
boys scored a complete victory in the
Track Meet, and consequently picked
up 91 Vi points toward the final Intramural standings.
The Zetes and the A.T.O.'s tied for
first place in the golf match with Rafe
Mair of Zeta Psi shooting the best
score of the day.
In basketball the Betas took the

40-34 and ended the year in second
Mr. Grant took over running the
Intramural schedule from Dick Penn,
and did a wonderful job. Many sports
were included in the program, which
was pronounced the best ever.

OVER twenty-five faculties and clubs entered teams in
the Intramurals this past year and the competition was
keener than it ever has been previously. The success of
the program was mainly due to the untiring efforts of
energetic Jan Crafter, a fourth year Phys. Ed. student who
guided the Intramural Athletic Board through a heavy
schedule and managed to finish the year on time.
The Physical Ed. teams and the Ex-Jayo girls battled
it out for supremacy of the leagues, and it wasn't until the
final game of hockey was played off that Phys. Ed. II came
out victorious.
Tennis was the first sport on the agenda and was not as
widely advertised as the other sports as the University
year had just started and many of the team managers had
not entered their participants. However, Mary-Jean Pearson won all her games and was pronounced the victor at
the W.U.S.-W.A.A. Banquet on March 5.
Volleyball, as usual the most popular sport, was won by
Phys. Ed. II and, closely following this team, was Ex-Jayo.
Over thirty games were played in the Women's Gym on
noon hours, and it is nearly impossible to believe that there
were less than five cancellations.
Grass hockey games were played in the wind, rain and
sleet. Nearly all the girls came out of the games windblown, battered and frozen, but declared through black
eyes, that they "wouldn't have missed it for anything." The
Ex-Jayo team was spark-plugged by Colleen Kelly, a first
year girl who, in addition to this, also managed the sport
for the winners.
Archery, a new addition to the Intramural Program,
was managed very expertly by Pat McQuillan, the fourth
best archer in the Eastern and Western Universities. This
sport was again won by Ex-Jayo, but close behind came
the Spooks, a group of novices, most of which had never
handled a bow and arrow in their lives.
The Swim Meet was the feature attraction of the sports
year as the Men's Intramurals were also run off at the
same time. P.E. I ran off with the laurels in this sport, but
most of the individual events were taken by members of
various Intramural teams.
Bowling was held at the Varsity Recreations and there
were so many entries that two afternoons were kept aside
for the U.B.C. teams. P.E. I again was victorious but the
individual high scorer was a member of another team.
She was Lida Zinovich, who racked up a fabulous score
and far outdistanced all of her competitors.
Badminton was, perhaps, the most poorly organized
sport on the program, but the fault was not due to manager
Ruth Gorwill. One of the male workers on campus was
authorized to set up the nets in the Field House, and when
he failed to do his job the games could not be played off.
However, none of these hardships daunted Stevie Kent,
who led her team, P.E. I, onto victory after they won a
battle against the Pharmacy girls who tried to score an
upset but narrowly missed doing so.
Basketball followed badminton, and Big Block winner
Fran Flett aided P.E. I in winning game after game. This
team won the finals in a two out of three playoff against
P.E. II. The latter team lost the game on the final free
shot, which was taken after the game was over.
A trip to Mount Seymour was the next event, and, even
though it was nearing exam time a good crowd gathered
up the mountain and both watched and entered the Downhill race. The meet itself was won by the Varsity Outdoor
Club and was managed by Skiing Rep. Anne Marie
The turn-out for Ping-Pong was phenomenal and the
schedule was made up to be played before Christmas, but
so many girls entered that it was decided to continue the
tournament after Christmas. Pat Crumb, of the Sparks
edged Liz Prentiss, Spooks, in a closely knit competition.
Health's A-Poppin was the title given to the Activities
Night frolic which was won by the Spooks, managed by
Betsy Forbes. The star of the evening was Gerry Legge,

WITH the able coaching of the
British Empire Games miler Bill
Parnell, the Track Team should show
well in competition this season.
As it now stands, there are very
few competitors for the field events,
but sprinters Don Barrieau, Stan
Glasgow, and Gordon Oates have
trained rigorously and show promise
of excelling in their events. U.B.C.'s
strongest section will be, once again,
the distance men, and last year's Conference winner, Peter Harris is aiming
for the crown this season in both the
one and two mile races.
Doug Kyle, the spectacular cross
country runner is also aiming to place
in the two mile event and has excellent chances of doing so, after beating the 1951 Cross Country Champion and placing third last year.
Harold Bush, Barney Powers, Ken
Campbell and Jack Brummitt are all
competing in the middle distances
and, if they live up to form, they
should show the results of their
capable coaching and lengthy training by placing well up in the Conference Competitions.
Little publicity is given to this
hard working team which, each year,
improves both in skill and in numbers. However, judging from the wide
array of participants in the Men's
Intramural Track Meet, there will be
many more excellent track boys turning out before the season is completed. The track boys will undoubtedly win the Conference Meet.

mm highlight of the 1952 golfing
'year was the successful defence of
the Evergreen Conference Championship by the U.B.C. team. The members of the squad, George Barnes,
John Russell, and Max Swanson
coasted to an easy victory when they
scorched the Vancouver Golf Course
boys at Burquitlam with an aggregate medal score of 465 strokes for
108 holes, 50 strokes better than
their nearest rivals.
The annual 72-hole medal tournament to determine the University
team was played on four different city
courses in March. First place was
taken by Charlie Swanson with a
score of 308. Dick White and Max
Swanson   followed   closely   on   the
winners' heels and George Barnes
and John Russell filled the final positions. In an exhibition tourney
against American competition last
May, the team won four out of a possible six matches.
The Match Play Championship,
played on the University Course in
the autumn, was won by Charlie
Swanson, who edged Brother Max on
the 41st hole of the scheduled 36-
hole final. Max had been medalist in
the qualifying round with an even-
par 71, just nipping Rocky Myers' 72.
This victory was Charlies third, and
was a repeat performance of last
years close decision over his brother.
This team may be little-mentioned,
but it decidedly earns the laurels.

| LTHOUGH there were only six returning members of
\ the Women's Big Block Club at U.B.C, the group
which remained did an excellent job of co-ordinating
their functions concerning athletics on the campus.
Sheila Moore, representative on the Women's Athletic
Directorate, offered many helpful hints to the society on
events which hitherto had gone unnoticed and unrecognized.
Quality rather than quantity was the keynote of the
association which, despite the lack in physical numbers,
accomplished much in setting a policy which can be followed in the forthcoming years.
Uppermost in this is the Scholarship which is to be
offered to a returning student who has proved herself
worthy of a monetary award by excelling in any or all
fields of athletics under the jurisdiction of W.A.D.,
coupled with scholastic standing. Suggested, moved, and
passed in a club meeting, the idea received a rather
dubious querying by the Directorate, but, after the concise explanations given by Dree Stewart and Sheila
Moore, the plan received the hearty consent of all members present.
The group also sponsored a Tea Dance which was
given in March in honor of the touring Irish, Queen's
Rugger squad. The last function gave all the athletes
present an opportunity to learn more about the athletic
set-up in both countries.
Meetings were held weekly, and, as the girls were in
different faculties, a great deal had to be and was accomplished at each meeting. Many of the members had
received their letters for two and even three years, but,
even so, as is proved by the lack of members, the group
is a difficult one to enter, and only those who have shown
outstanding sportsmanship, ability and teamwork in athletics are chosen to wear the navy blazer with its B. C.
crest on the sleeve.
In order to win a Woman's Block, the player must be
present at seven-eighths of the practices and attend and
play in all the scheduled games. This, in itself, is a major
feat, but, in addition to this, the girl must be outstanding
in the sport. She must play for the top University team,
and, as yet, no member of the second team has even won
this coveted award. Blocks have been given for skiing
on the average of one, and not more than two a year;
Badminton, one a year; Basketball, three or four a year,
but the most of the Blocks have, in previous years, been
given to the Grass Hockey players, who make up the best
women athletes on campus, and who have won the trophy
given for the sport for many years.
No one girl has ever come up to the standard set by
Maureen Bray, who, in her final year, found that she had
compiled nine Big Blocks for Swimming, Badminton and
Grass Hockey. Maureen accomplished what every athlete aims for, but never expects to attain.
This year a new precedence has been set. Freshmen
had never won Big Blocks before, but three freshmen
were more than worthy of this honor.
0 Back row: Adele Herbert, Jan Crafter, Dree Stewart.   Front row;
Anne Marie Leuchte, Joan MacArthur.
It is merely a coincidence that several girls in the
faculty of Physical Education win blocks every year, but
it has been proved that more girls in other faculties win
the Blocks than those in Phys. Ed.
The members of the club are outstanding not only in
athletics but in all other activities as well. Joan Mac-
Arthur, one of the most illustrious members, is, at present,
in her second year Law, and was runner-up for president
of this society.
Dree Stewart, many times a letter winner, is, in addition, the Grass Hockey manager, the Swimming coach
and the Treasurer of the W.A.D. She will graduate from
Phys. Ed. this spring but may be back to bolster both
the teams next year.
Sheila Moore, a fourth year Arts student, won her
Block for Basketball, but she, too, may not return.
Anne Marie Leuchte broke her leg last year when
skiing for U.B.C, and so has not raced this year but been
manager instead.
All in all, the club has been very successful in carrying
out their functions. They accomplished much. d5ia d5lock d5oud ^srinidh in S^tule
THE brawnier males of the campus who have made outstanding contributions to the University in the sports
field are those belonging to the Big Block Club. These
sportsmen work hard and do much both before and after
joining the club, by being active in their particular sports
and also by helping the campus in general, financially
and socially.
Each year the club sponsors the Frosh Smoker for the
incoming male students on campus. This event corresponds to the women's Big and Little Sister Banquet but
takes on a slightly different tone. As with the latter,
refreshments are served, but the entertainment differs
radically from the skits, etc., at the women's welcoming
function. This year an unscheduled interruption occurred
and the fracas was remembered long after the smoker
was forgotten.
In addition to the social contributions, the Big Block
Club supplies the ushers and ticket takers for all the
sports on campus. The boys assist at basketball, football,
ice hockey and swimming meets as recorders and timers,
and are on hand at every available moment to assist the
staff if anything unexpected occurs.
The club also sends a representative to the Men's
Athletic Committee which enables all the members to
have a say in the Freshmen Rulings and all other points
which are of major importance and concern the future
of the sports rating of the University.
Led this year by Bill Popowich, the group handled
their meetings very capably, which is astounding for such
a large organization. As there are far more men's sports
at U.B.C. there are consequently more Block winners
and the group is rapidly swelling as more and better
players are graduating from the Vancouver and surrounding High Schools.
This past year has seen a change in policy in the
awarding of Big Blocks. In the past only the very outstanding members of the teams were invited to join the
club. The present members had a difficult time deciding
on the winners when they came to the Rugger team. As
all the members of this team worked in such close proximity and with such co-operation the only solution was
to award all boys on the winning team Blocks, which
was done.
The Big Block Dance, which, last year, was held at
the Commodore, was not one of the dances on the
curriculum this year. It had been decided that there were
already too many campus functions during the first three
months of the new year so the idea which was such a
success was discontinued.
The executive did an admirable job, the body as a
whole worked well, and the individuals who were already
Block winners bettered their usual standard of sportsmanship which was indeed an accomplishment.

DELTA Upsilon, a non-secret fraternity, was founded in
Williamstown, Mass., in 1834. The founders were not
opposed to secrecy, but were positively opposed to the
abuses of secrecy. At this time, the anti-secret societies
were amalgamated into Delta Upsilon.
The British Columbia chapter of Delta Upsilon began
with the formation of a local chapter, Chi Omega Psi, in
1928. This chapter was chartered by Delta Upsilon
in 1935.
The B.C. chapter has always participated enthusiastically in intramural sports, campus activities, boys' work,
student affairs, the Song Fest, and has maintained
scholastic standing. Prominent D.U.'s on the campus
include Pete Lusztig, new president of the M.A.D., and
Bob Hindmarch, captain of this year's football squad.
The B.C. chapter has always had strong alumni support in its activities and, assisted by the alumni, has
succeeded in obtaining a chapter house.

ZETA Beta Tau is an international fraternity with 48 chapters across the United States and
Canada. Alpha Chi chapter of
Zeta Beta Tau was installed on
the campus of U.B.C. in 1942
when the Kappa Theta Rho local
fraternity was granted an international charter.
Since inception at U.B.C, Zeta
Beta Tau has been active in all
fields of campus activity. This
year, under the capable leadership of President Manly Cohen,
the Alpha Chi chapter has had
one of its most successful years,
from a social, athletic, and inter-
fraternal viewpoint.
The social season was highlighted by a masquerade party in
the fall, and the annual Spring
Formal which was held this year
at the Panorama Roof of the
Hotel Vancouver.
The Inter-Faculty Bridge Tournament is sponsored annually by
Zeta Beta Tau, and for the past
three years the trophy has been
won by Zeta Beta Tau.
The ZBT's have taken an
active part in every field of intramural sports. In basketball, they
won four out of five games and in
volleyball, they went undefeated
to the semi-final round.
A special feature of this year's
activities was the attendance of
Alpha Chi chapter at the international convention of Zeta Beta
Tau in Seattle. The pledge class
of 1952 was initiated at the convention in the midst of business
meetings and social affairs, climaxed by a fabulous New Year's
Eve party at the Olympic Hotel
in Seattle.
These are just a few of the
many and varied activities of the
fraternity which is hoping to carry
on in the same tradition which
made this year so successful.

DELTA KAPPA EPSILON had its beginning at Yale
in early 1844 as a protest against the injustice of the
society system then existing at that university.
Phi Alpha Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon is one of
the newer fraternities at U.B.C. It was chartered in 1949
after the petition to establish a chapter at U.B.C. had been
submitted by a local fraternity known as Beta Chi.
Phi Alpha was the fiftieth of the now fifty-one Deke
chapters, five of which are in Canada and the remainder
scattered throughout the United States.
Since its inception almost four years ago, Phi Alpha
has attempted to band together a group that will live up
to the standards and traditions set up by their forerunners, in the betterment of the fraternity, the university
and the community. The members come from all over
British Columbia and several parts of Canada and from
many different faculties. Their interests on and off the
campus are many and varied. The fraternity enters a
team in all intramural events and inter-fraternity
This year, the Dekes held their Spring Formal at the
Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. The main event of the
year, it was attended both by active members, and by
an enthusiastic number of alumni.

ALPHA Delta Phi is not only the oldest international
fraternity, but also the oldest fraternity represented
on the U.B.C. campus. The house, situated in Shaugh-
nessy, is entirely debt free and can accommodate fourteen brothers.
This year, the intramural squad swept the basketball
cup and the ski-ing trophy, and finished a close third in
the final team standing.
The fraternity had a colorful and varied social calendar, including an international weekend with the Washington chapter, and culminating in the highlight event
of the year, the Spring Formal.
In a more serious vein, Alpha Delta Phi engaged in
regular Literary Meetings during which the brothers
presented reports on controversial subjects which were
followed by lively discussion.

TI1HE "Fiji" cannibals appeared on the University of
I British Columbia campus in June of 1929, when the
then six-year-old fraternity of Alpha Gamma Phi petitioned Phi Gamma Delta, and Pi Gamma was established.
There are 82 chapters in the fraternity of Phi Gamma
Delta in Canada and the United States. The Canadian
chapters are located at U.B.C, Toronto, and McGill.
Pi Gamma chapter is kept in close contact with the rest
of these chapters by means of a monthly magazine and
by travelling field-secretaries who visit each chapter at
least once in every school year.
Last year, with the completion of a newly-constructed
fraternity house, the brothers of Pi Gamma chapter realized a long cherished dream. The house is able to accommodate twenty brothers and has ample space for the
activities of the whole chapter. In the past, this chapter
has consistently maintained an excellent record of
achievements in all phases of university life, and with
the additional benefits of this house, the future looks
equally as bright.

PHI Kappa Pi fraternity was founded
as the only Canadian National Fraternity in 1913 by the amalgamation
of two local fraternities, Sigma Pi, at
the University of Toronto, and Alpha
Beta Gamma, at McGill University.
Since its inception 36 years ago,
Phi Kappa Pi has maintained and
strongly emphasized the spirit of
Canadianism. The fraternity motto,
" Philuminoi Kanadioi Piuameth",
"In brotherly love, as Canadians, we
benefit one another", is indicative of
the aim and spirit of the brotherhood.
Phi Kappa Pi has chapters at Alberta,
Manitoba, Toronto, McGill, and Dalhousie. Close contact is kept, through
a national council, with each chapter
which results in an integration of
purpose and activities throughout the
The local chapter of Phi Kappa Pi
dates from 1919 when, as the first
fraternity on the U.B.C. campus,
Alpha Iota was formed by ten men
who wished to perpetuate a comradeship from overseas.
This year, the chapter has acquired
a new fraternity house which can
accommodate twelve brothers.

LAMBDA Chi Alpha, a general
social fraternity, was founded at
Boston University in 1909. While
one of the youngest of the intern-
national fraternities, it has the largest
number of chapters, with 140 in the
United States and Canada.
Lambda Chi Alpha came to
U.B.C. in 1944. Since the establishment of Zeta Xi chapter of Lambda
Chi Alpha on the campus, it has
steadily expanded, and now has a
large active membership backed by a
strong alumni chapter, an energetic
Mothers' Club, and a house at Acadia
Camp for the use of the members.
Zeta Xi chapter takes an active
interest in intramural games and provides a healthy social life for its members. The chapter also sponsors the
annual Freshette Queen contest which
is part of the Frosh Week activities.
In this year's ceremony, Olive Sturgess was crowned Queen at the Frosh
Reception. In the chapter spirit runs
high on projects. A float was built
for the Homecoming Parade, the
chapter came second in the selling
of Mardi Gras raffle tickets, and won
first prize for the best table decorations on the second night of the Mardi
Prominent Lambda Chis on the
campus this year were John Harrison, co-chairman of the Mardi Gras;
Dave Wall, co-chairman of the Song
Fest; and Jim Patterson, Homecoming Parade Marshal. Many of the
chapter's members also serve in the
military reserve units on the campus.

PHI Delta Theta was founded at Miami University in
1848 and the U.B.C. chapter was installed in 1930.
Since its founding on the campus, Phi Delta Theta has
been constantly active in fraternity activities, intramurals,
and university organizations.
This year Ian Turnbull on the ski team, Brian Upson
and George Seymour on the Thunderbird hoop squad,
Pete Gregory and Bill Stuart on the football team, and
Jim McNicol on the Varsity rugger team, represented
Phi Delta Theta in the conference athletic setup.
On the political side, this year's president of Phi Delta
Theta was elected new Vice-President of the Student
Council, while Dick Vogel was named new Prexy of the
Inter-Fraternity Council.

107 ONE of the oldest of college fraternities, Beta Theta Pi began its
history in 1839 at Miami University.
There are now 96 Beta chapters, two
of which are in Canada. Gamma
Omicron, the U.B.C. chapter, was
granted a charter in Beta Theta Pi in
the fall of 1936.
Beta achievements this year indicate the place of prominence that
Beta holds in university life. For the
third year, the chapter has won the
Harris Cup for scholarship; for the
second year, the U.B.C. Song Fest
Cup; for the sixth year, ever since its
inception, the Housser Cup, emblematic of general excellence in sports,
scholarship, and university service;
and for the first time, the General
Achievement Trophy for the eight
Beta chapters in the Pacific Northwest.
After years of planning, the Betas
have finally realized their favorite
dream. The construction of the new

KAPPA Sigma fraternity was founded at the University
of Virginia on December 10, 1869. It was originally
founded at the University of Bologna in 1400. Epsilon
Epsilon chapter was initiated at the University of British
Columbia on April 30, 1941. The fraternity now has
136 chapters in Canada and the United States. There
are six chapters in the Pacific Northwest area.
The growth of the fraternity since 1941 has been rapid
and constant. Membership drives have not emphasized
any one particular group and Kappa Sigma is proud of
the variety of interests embodied in the fraternity. This
fact not only allows for a more representative coverage
on the campus, but also promotes a more broad and
tolerant solution of fraternity problems.
The fraternity now owns and maintains a chapter house
situated at 1955 West 16th Avenue. At this residence
brothers can be accommodated throughout the year.
Each year, Kappa Sigma awards thirty $300 scholar
ships to the men who show the best all around ability.
This practice includes all chapters of the fraternity.
Prominent Kappa Sigs on the campus this year were
Dave Anfield, president of the Inter-Fraternity Council;
Danny Oliver, captain, Bill Whyte, and Don Spenee, of
the Thunderbird rugger squad; Al Borthwick, with the
U.B.C. swim team; Al Byman and Gerry Nestman, with
the Thunderbird football team; and Ken Campbell and
Bud Dobson of the Varsity Soccer squad.
The Kappa Sigs held the second annual Pledge Breakfast in the early fall, in honor of all the new pledges of
the nine sororities on the campus.
More entertaining was done when the chapter held
another annual party at the fraternity house, in honor of
the visiting California Golden Bears.
Kappa Sigma climaxed the year with the traditional
Spring Formal which was held at the Canyon Gardens.

SIGMA Chi fraternity was founded
on June 28th, 1855, at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. Since then it
has gained a place of unsurpassed
prominence in the fraternity world.
With 122 active chapters across the
continent, Sigma Chi, one of the famed
Miami Triad, is firmly established on
the campi of the better colleges and
universities of Canada and the United
In January of 1949 Sigma Chi was
installed at U.B.C. as Delta Omicron
chapter. Since that time it has grown
from an unknown fraternity on the
campus to a well established and respected one.
Made famous internationally by the
many prominent members and the best-
known and beloved of all fraternity
songs, "The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi",
the fraternity is becoming better known
every year. The Delta Omicron chapter sponsors its annual Sweetheart Ball
which was highlighted this year by
the crowning of Marilyn McLallen of
Gamma Phi Beta as "Sweetheart of
Delta Omicron".
Delta Omicron takes an active interest in intramural games and many
Sigs were active in campus activities
this year. Every Sig is expected to
obtain good scholastic marks. To date,
one member of Delta Omicron has
been awarded the Rhodes scholarship.
The officers this year were Richard
Archambault, president; Don Gleig,
vice-president; Ian Strong, annotator;
Tommy Hatcher, treasurer.

PSI Upsilon fraternity, founded at Union College in
Schenectady, New York, in 1833, is one of the oldest
Greek Letter Fraternities in America. At present there
are 30 active chapters, three of which are in Canada, at
U.B.C, Toronto, and McGill.
The local chapter, Zeta Zeta, was affiliated with Psi
Upsilon in 1935. However, the chapter was in existence
as early as 1928 as the Alpha Kappa Alpha Society. The
members of this society decided to petition Psi Upsilon,
and with the aid of Dr. Walter N. Sage and other prominent alumni, were successful seven years after the initial
meeting. 1953 marks the 25th Anniversary of the old
Alpha Kaps.
From the beginning, the fraternity's policy has been
one of gradual expansion along the lines of the "Rhodes
Idea". For this reason the number of chapters has been
kept down to 30. This spirit has been carried into each
chapter, and it is the intention of every group to remain
small, thus promoting a truer fraternal feeling.

International in 1947, the B. C. Chapter of Alpha Tau
Omega is a young but very active and large chapter on
the campus. It is affiliated with the fourth largest, and
one of the oldest fraternities in North America.
A.T.O. was the first International Fraternity to abolish
"Hell Week" and to found instead "Help Week". This
year the pledges of this chapter painted the interior of the
North Shore Neighborhood House as their "Help Week".
A.T.O. is very active in intramurals and in other
campus activities. This spring the group sold by far the
most Mardi Gras raffle tickets in aid of the Canadian
Arthritic and Rheumatic Society and the Crippled Children's Hospitals.
The outstanding social functions of A.T.O. included
the Shipwreck, the New Year's Eve party, the Initiation
party and the Spring Formal.

SIGMA Phi Delta is an international social fraternity of engineers.
Since it is open only to students of the
Engineering faculty, Sigma Phi Delta
is also a professional fraternity. It
was founded at the University of
Southern California in 1924. Theta
Chapter, at the University of British
Columbia, was organized in 1932.
Due to the rather heavy Engineering course, activities are more limited
than other fraternities. Meetings are
held bi-monthly and one social function takes place per month. Activities are co-ordinated with activities
in the Engineering faculty in order
that the members may take full advantage of the social program of both
the faculty and the fraternity.
Sigma Phi's are active also in intramural sports, with teams entered in
volleyball, basketball, ping-pong, badminton and softball.
A well-defined professional program is maintained and a very close
relationship exists between the active
and the alumni group.
The activities have been highlighted by the purchase of a house
which will be in operation next year.

If ETA Psi fraternity was founded at New York Uni-
ii versity in 1847. It became the first international
fraternity with the establishment of a chapter in Canada,
at the University of Toronto in 1879. The Sigma
Epsilon chapter was installed at U.B.C. in 1926, the
first international fraternity on the campus.
This year the Zetes distinguished themselves by winning the Intramural Swim Meet by a wide margin. At
this meet the U.B.C. swim team discovered that one
of the brothers, Dune McGinnis, was much too good to
be swimming for the Zetes. He is now a star swimmer
for U.B.C.
By tradition the Zetes
took last place in the annual Greek Song Fest as
the whole fraternity gave its
usual exhibition of antics.

DELTA Gamma was founded in
1873, and the Alpha Phi chapter
was installed on the campus of
U.B.C. in 1928.
The national philanthropic project
of the Delta Gamma's, namely, sight
conservation and aid to the blind, is
carried on by the active chapter both
on and off the campus. On the campus, the members read several hours
daily to a blind student, and provide
a yearly scholarship for such a student. Off the campus, some of the
sightless bowlers are driven to and
from this recreation each Saturday.
Working in conjunction with the
Alumnae group, the active chapter of
Delta Gamma sponsors each year a
pre-Christmas sale of Blindcraft goods
at the C.N.I.B. centre.
As in the past many DG's were
active in campus affairs. Marion
Baldwin was co-chairman of this

ALPHA Delta Pi, the first Greek
letter fraternity for college women,
was founded on May 15, 1851, at
Wesleyan Female College.
Since its inception in 1851, Alpha
Delta Pi has expanded into one of
the largest international societies with
81 active chapters having over 40,000
members throughout Canada and the
United States.
Beta Kappa, the U.B.C. chapter of
Alpha Delta Pi was installed on the
campus as a fully affiliated chapter
in 1931.
This year, under the guidance of
Sister President Betty Ann Kerry, the
chapter maintained its award-winning
scholastic average as well as taking
an active interest in intramural sports,
student affairs, the Song Fest and
general campus activities.
Although Beta Kappa chapter enjoyed a very active social calendar
including the Pledge Party, Initiation
Banquet, Christmas Party, Mardi
Gras and several exchanges, the highlight of the year was the traditional
Dixieland Ball held in the Mayfair
Room of the Hotel Vancouver.
In the Mardi Gras chorus line,
Beta Kappa was represented by dancers Diane Driscoll and Nan Adamson, while June Kirk occupied the
very busy position of president of the
Home Economics Society.
As the main philanthropic project,
the Beta Kappa chapter of Alpha
Delta Pi spent many interesting hours
helping the Kitsilano Youth Recreation Centre.
To round out a wonderful year,
Alpha Delta Pi is looking forward to
summer camp and, in June, will be
eagerly anticipating the 102nd annual
convention which will be held this
year in Banff.

THE first chapter of Kappa Kappa
Gamma was founded at Manmouth
College, Illinois, on October 13, 1870.
Since that time, the golden key has
been worn as its badge. Of the 83
active chapters of Kappa Kappa
Gamma, Gamma Upsilon was established at the University of British
Columbia in 1929.
This year, Kappa Kappa Gamma
continued its activity in intramural
events with teams competing in the
volleyball, badminton, bowling and
ping-pong. The Kappa's, swathed in
Indian blankets, entered the Song
Fest with their "Kappa Dreams".
Chapter social activities this year
included the traditional Barn Dance
in the fall, the annual Alumnae Tea,
a Mothers' Tea and Luncheon, and
the climax of the school year, the
Spring Formal at the Panorama Roof
of the Hotel Vancouver.
Mixing work with pleasure, the
Kappa's worked hard on the annual
Kappa Kappa Gamma - Gamma Phi
Beta Cabaret which went under the
title of "Voodoo" this year.
Gamma Upsilon chapter of Kappa
Kappa Gamma was host this spring to
the other western chapters when they
held their district convention in Vancouver. Next year, the national convention will be held at Jasper.

ILPHA, the original chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta
t\ fraternity, was formed at Syracuse University in New
York, in May, 1904.
From its first eleven members, the relatively newly
founded fraternity has expanded into an international
organization consisting of sixty-two chapters.
Delta Zeta, the U.B.C chapter of the fraternity, was
organized during the 1929-30 session and was installed
in May, 1930, as a fully affiliated chapter.
Although the fraternity activities keep the members
busy, Alpha Gam encourages participation in many
U.B.C. activities.
This year Alpha Gams have worked in many U.B.C.
teams and clubs, and some of the members had positions
on W.U.S. and W.A.D.
One of the largest projects sponsored by the active
chapter and members of the alumnae is the annual
"Winter Wonderland" Cabaret, this year called "Wonderland in Reno", given in aid of B.C.'s Spastic Society.
This is part of a larger altruistic project carried on by
the fraternity on a national scale.
Further funds are raised each year to aid the Coqui-
leetza Indian Hospital at Sardis.
Maintaining their vocal supremacy on the campus, the
Alpha Gams again took first place in the annual Song
Fest, singing their "Friendship Song".
Rounding out the activities for the school year, the
members of Alpha Gamma Delta enjoyed ten days together at camp.

GAMMA Phi Beta sorority was founded at Syracuse,
New York, in 1874. It was the first sorority on the
University of British Columbia campus, Alpha Lambda
chapter being installed in the spring of 1928.
As its national philanthropy, Gamma Phi has established summer camps for underprivileged children. The
two camps, at Sechelt, British Columbia, and Denver,
Colorado, are owned and maintained by the sorority.
During the summer months, girls from the 64 chapters of
Gamma Phi Beta act as counsellors at the two camps.
"Voodoo" was the unusual theme of this year's edition
of the annual Gamma Phi Beta-Kappa Kappa Gamma
Cabaret. Members of both sororities danced and sang in
the floor-show. The proceeds from this successful party
went to the respective philanthropies of the two sororities.
Outstanding among Gamma Phi's social events this
past year were the annual Christmas party, held at the
home of Betty Ridley, and the traditional Carnation
Ball, held at Tara.
After the strain of final examinations, the Gamma Phi's
relaxed at their camp on Howe Sound. But their time at
camp was cut short, for they had to rush back to the
city to host the Province VI convention of Gamma
Phi Beta.

This year, the Thetas held their
Friday night meetings at the home
of Shirley Stralendorff. Under the
capable leadership of President Sheila
McGiverin, the fraternity carried on
its philanthropic and social activities.
The chapter was kept busy sponsoring a war orphan from Brussels,
aiding a Vancouver home for underprivileged children and raising money
for the Institute of Logopedics,
Wichita, Kansas, the fraternity's
national charity.
The national convention of Kappa
Alpha Theta was held in Sun Valley

ALPHA Omicron Pi was founded on January 2, 1897,
at Barnard College, Columbia University, New York,
N. Y. It was founded by Jessie Wallace Hughan, a well-
known writer and speaker on economics and sociological
subjects; Helen St. Clair Mullen, a prominent attorney;
Stella George Stern Perry, a novelist; and Elizabeth
Heywood Wyman, an educator and writer. Their names
can be found in America's book of Who's Who.
Today there are 145 active and alumnae chapters of
Alpha Omicron Pi. Beta Kappa chapter was initiated at
the University of British Columbia on October 17, 1931.
There are two more Canadian chapters, one Kappa Phi
at McGill, and the other at Toronto.
During the past year, the president of Beta Kappa
Chapter, Ruth Richardson, led the group in a variety of
activities. In the early fall, the girls modelled in the
annual Alpha Omicron Pi fashion show. This show is
sponsored by the alumnae chapter and it is actually a
competition in original fashion design. The purpose of
the show is to promote more original clothing designs
by young Canadian designers. The proceeds from the
show are given to the Spastic Paralysis Society.
Beta Kappa's philanthropical activities include help to
the Spastic Paralysis Society and personal assistance to
the Canadian National Institute for the Blind.  Through
out the year, the members attended the Gadabout dinners
which are held every month at the Institute for the Blind.
At Christmas time, the Beta Kappa chapter sent a much-
appreciated parcel to a boy in the Home for Young
A highlight of the year for the Beta Kappa chapter
of Alpha Omicron Pi was the much anticipated interview
with the National President, Juanita Talbot, who paid
the chapter a brief visit in late October. In her honor,
a tea was given by both the active and alumnae chapters.
Later in the year, the district director, Marrion Werner,
spent a few hectic days with the chapter, discussing
sorority business.
Alpha Omicron Pi was active in both campus affairs
and intramural events this year. The chapter entered
the annual Song Fest competition in February. The same
month they held their annual Mother and Daughter tea
which introduced mothers of the new pledges to the
To climax a full social calendar for the year, Beta

A SMOKER, banquet and informal dances highlighted
the social activities of an active year for the Commerce
Undergraduate Society. The annual banquet, which
provides a valuable association between Commerce students and potential employers, was held this year at the
Hotel Vancouver. A smorgasbord dinner was served
at the informal dance held at the Canyon Garden Lodge
in North Vancouver.
An investors' syndicate, started this year by two enterprising finance students, permits student participation in
a controlled fund for the trading of securities.
0 Smiling Professor Vukelich enjoyed
himself with students dancing at the
Commerce faculty's big formal of the
year, the Financier's Frolic. The dance
was held at the Cave Supper Club on February 6. This was the first time the
Commerce faculty staged their ball as o
campus-wide function.

S. N. F. Chant of Arts and
Science not only administered
U.B.C.'s largest faculty but also
lectured in Psychology.
LARGEST and most disunited faculty is the Faculty of
Arts and Science which contains more than half of the
total registration of the university. Nearly 2500 students
are registered in courses leading to the degree of Bachelor
of Arts, taking such varied courses as anthropology,
French, biology, physics and philosophy. Including the
schools of Commerce, home economics, physical education, education and social work, the total registration of
the faculty this year was 3382, about 200 less than last
Prof. S. N. F. Chant, Dean of the faculty, reports that
the next major campus building project will be a classroom and office building for the arts faculty. This will
allow offices of faculty members to be centrally located,
and will include a common room for students in the

MEMBERS of the Faculty of Arts and

and grants from several sources. Dr. Earle
Birney of the English Department left in January for a year of study in France on a Canadian Government fellowship. Dr. Birney
hopes to do considerable writing while he
is in France.    His best known works are

Turvey and the poem David. Dr. Ian McTag-
gart-Cowans of the Zoology Department was
awarded the Nuffield fellowship for this year,
and is studying in England. The Anthropology Department was substantially aided
when Dr. Harry Hawthorne received a Carnegie Foundation grant to extend courses
and research. Dr. Charles Borden of the
department also received a grant to do
anthropological studies in Tweedsmuir Park.
Of note in the History Department was the
publishing of a two-volume history of the
Royal Canadian Navy written by Professor
Gilbert Tucker.

WHAT elusive organization, the Arts Undergraduate
1 Society, has once more attempted to justify its existence. Accused of not performing a worthwhile function
and at one point this year abolished by Student Council,
A.U.S. reorganized and presented a revised constitution
which earned them another opportunity to prove their
Formulation of the Special Events Committee has
been the main undertaking of the A.U.S. It is through
this committee that most campus events which are termed
cultural are co-ordinated. In the first term the committee
sponsored a series of concerts which brought to the
campus such celebrities as Ursula Malkin, pianist; Marshall Sumner and Malcolm Tait, piano-'cello team; Brian
Elliott, Australian humorist; Harry and Murray Adaskin,
with original compositions for violin and piano; and
Madame Radker, lieder singer.
An appearance of the Vancouver Symphony in the
new gym was a somewhat disappointing presentation of
the second term, being obviously more of a rehearsal than
a concert. A Mussoc concert of musical varieties provided a different and interesting program. Other second
term presentations included Jean de Rimanoczy, violinist;
John Emerson, Betty Phillips and Karl Norman in a
musical comedy program; Elizabeth Brault, folk singer;
the Doukabour male choir; and a musical Variety Revue
presented by students from the University of Washington.
Plans of A.U.S. for next year include an expanded Special
Events program and increased participation in intramural sports.
0 Noted violinist Jean de Rimanoczy was
brought to the campus by the Special Events
0 Vivacious soprano Betty Phillips was another
of the Committee's featured performers.
0 Malcolm Tait, 'cellist, played sonatas by
Delius and Shostakovitch for one of the earlier

working over the test-tubes and Bunsen
burners of the Chemistry building. The
students were amply compensated for the
cold prison-like walls and long narrow
windows of the building by its surroundings of beautifully landscaped trees and
0 Other students, not quite so energetic
or hard-working, found Brock Hall a
wonderful place in which to talk, relax,
sleep or play bridge. Bridge-playing here
reached a near maximum through the year,
with the too-few card tables filled most
of the day. The Brock was also the home
of constant series of meetings, dances
and teas.

0 Dr. Blythe A. Eagles, Dean of Agriculture and Head of the Department of
Dairying, gives a helping hand to two fourth year agriculture students, Beverley
Birkett and Jack Boyd.
THIS year saw 190 eager students enter the Faculty of
Agriculture, well aware of the increasing demand for
agricultural scientists. Seniors in the faculty can specialize in the fields of Animal Husbandry, Soils, Field Crops,
Agricultural Mechanics, Dairying, Horticulture, Poultry
and Agricultural Economics.
Dean of the Faculty is Dr. Blythe Eagles. The Dean is
well known for his ability to give counselling help to
students, and for his assistance in student affairs. In the
fall the Dean held a tea for foreign students at his home.
Students from India, Sweden, England, Czechoslovakia,
Abysinnia, the West Indies and Greece gave short talks
on their homelands, and got acquainted with some of
their Canadian fellow-Agriculture students.
Students were sorry to hear of the retirement this year
of Dr. A. F. Barss, head of the Horticulture Department.
Dr. Barss has been with the faculty for 35 years. He has
established a modern and internationally known horticulture department on the campus.

ALL students in Agriculture belong to the Agriculture
Undergraduate Society. This active organization provides liaison with faculty as well as organizing educational and social events for the Aggies.
Important to the rest of the campus, as well as to
Aggies, was the sponsoring by the Ag.U.S. of the first
Agriculture Open House. This full-day affair had
Agriculture students judging competitions in the mornr
ing, and entertaining the public in the afternoon. Sawdust-eating steers, a complete tropical garden under
glass, and the latest farm machinery were all exhibited
in the display.
Various social events enlivened the Aggies' year. The
students started with a get-together Salmon Barbeque,
and this was followed closely by the October Aggie
Barn Dance. One of the year's thrills was the presentation, at the Agriculture Banquet, of an engraved beer
stein to Max McGibbon, 1000th grad in Agriculture.
0 Aggie Apple Day had Agriculture students selling apples in aid
of the Crippled Children Fund. When the day was over, about two

145 EXPANSION in the forestry training
program received real impetus in
1950 when the Department of Forestry attained Faculty status. Further
advances have been made in broadening the curriculum which now includes courses leading to the Master's
and Doctor's degrees. Next year's
student will find an even broader
curriculum with an option in Forest
Products and Wood Technology being
offered for the first time. Still another
innovation will be brought in next
year—graduate student assistantships
with a value up to $1200.
The man behind the expansion in
Forestry is Dean Lowell Besley. This
year will be the last at U.B.C. for Mr.
Besley, who will leave this spring to
become Executive Director-Forester
of the American Forestry Association.

1 session was Jim McWilliams, who has been
announced winner of this year's Rhodes Scholarship.
With Jim at the wheel, the B.S.F. students and
Forest Engineers of the Forest Club carried out
an ambitious program of worthwhile activity. The
club sponsored an informative series of lectures
on topics of current interest, given by men prominent in B. C.'s forest industry.
Publication of the U.B.C. Forester, work on
the Research Committee, activity in intramural
sports, sponsorship of the Blood Drive, and many
social activities were some of the things that occupied Forestry students' time.

Congress on Medical Education in London, August
1953.  He will present a paper on student selection.
The future of the Faculty promises increased size with
appointments to be made at St. Paul's Hospital and the
Provincial Mental Hospital. Plans for a new Medical
School building at the V.G.H. have been accepted.

the campus, the Law Building combines
airy spaciousness with a pleasantly
musty atmosphere.
0 Dean George F. Curtis explains some legal difficulties to students Ivan Feltham and Joe Nold.
0 Quick-witted Dr. Malcolm M. Maclntyre is noted

THE Faculty of Law's new and beautiful building was opened
officially this fall before school began, by the Prime Minister.
The ceremony was held at the time of the annual meeting
of the Canadian Bar Association. Later in the year, the
president of the Association, Mr. Taschereau, visited the
university and spoke to law students.
The faculty had two new additions to its staff this year.
William C. Edwards from Oxford was a visiting lecturer, and
Fred Carruthers, who has just returned from Harvard where
he was studying on a Viscount Bennett Scholarship, also
Members of the faculty continued to make scholarly contributions to legal periodicals. Mr. Kennedy, a member of
the staff, is B.C. Editor of the Canadian Bar Review.
150 FEW students on campus are unaware of the existence
of the Law Faculty. In this the Law Undergraduate
Society can feel that they have had a successful year.
The law float in the Homecoming Parade shared first
honors with Pharmacy in the float competition because
of its originality and interest. The robed and bewigged
male chorus line was one of the features that made the
Law Ball enjoyable entertainment. L.U.S. also sponsored a Hallowe'en Dance and an informal dance held in
January. Capable Ted Pearce edited Legal Notes this
year, and a competent job was done on the law edition
of The Ubyssey with Bill Philpott editing the copy. Several clubs and committees subsidiary to the L.U.S. provided interest for students in the faculty. Some of these
groups included a sports committee, public speaking club
and bar association study groups.

The Engineers present their usual unbiased
approach to this year's activities:
THE Engineers began their rule of the campus
this year, as usual, by knocking the Frosh into
line in the Battle of the Lily Pond on Red Sweater
Day. The completeness of this initial victory
became more apparent as the year progressed and
no opposition or competition was offered from
any quarter of the campus. The one possible
exception to this lack of opposition was a pitiable
effort by an irresponsible pubster to wage war
by writing slanderous and derogatory newspaper
articles. He was shown the error of his ways and
was last seen doing penance by lashing himself to
Birk's clock with a large chain. One other significant victory was achieved in Ray Cope's defeat of
Vaughn Lyon in debating the educational qualities
of an Engineering course.
Since their energy was not required for physical
competition, the Engineers were able to apply
more zest to charity drives and social functions.
Under the brilliant organization of Red Wetherill,
nearly a thousand dollars was raised for the March
of Dimes—a record sum. Gerry Stevens got the
social events off to an auspicious start by organizing a Smoker. Two other social functions of the
year were the Nurses-Engineers Mixers. The first
of these was organized by the Nurses, the second
by the Engineers. Pep-Meets, the gala Red-Eye
Ball, and the Engineers' Ubyssey were other affairs
sponsored by the Engineers.

163 THE Faculty of Graduate Studies is probably the least
obtrusive Faculty or School on the Campus. The
numbers of graduate students is necessarily small, and is
divided among several lines of study including most of
the departments of the University. Little is heard of this
group of students; they have no student organization,
and play little part in the activities of other groups. They
spend most of their on-campus time in the stacks, and
the rest of their time in field-work for theses.
Owing to their diverse pursuits and the intense and
detailed nature of their studies, the grad students have
to give up the pleasant, public extra-curricular activities
of their earlier years and disappear from public view.
0 Dr. Henry F. Angus, Dean of Graduate Studies,
gives some information to graduate students Corinne
Robertshaw, George   Fujisawa, and   Lea   Horsfield.
0 Grad students Richard Azuma (left) and George
Griffiths with Alec Guiness expressions, work with
the Van de Graaff machine in the basement of
the Physics Building. They were mixing heavy
hydrogen with ordinary hydrogen. When asked what
the purpose of the experiment was, they replied it
was "to see what would happen ..."
164 0 The neat white hut of the School
of Social Work saw a constant influx
of students interested in the field.
THE U.B.C.'s School of Social Work had an enrollment of
84 students for the 1952-53 session. Of these, 56 were
taking their Bachelor of Social Work degrees, 28 had advanced toward their master of Social Work degrees.
The course included both classroom instruction and practical work in actual social agencies. Students found great
interest in doing field work at such local agencies as the
Children's Aid Society, the Vancouver City Social Service
Department, the Family Welfare Bureau, and the Mental
Student activities were under the direction of the School's
Student Association, headed by Boris Steiman.

0 Director of the School  of  Education,  Dr.  J.  R.
Mcintosh, kept students on their toes.
TiE School of Education's one year course consists of two
major parts: on-campus lectures and off-campus practice
teaching. The practice teaching for the 1952-53 year was
divided into one session before Christmas and two two-week
sessions after Christmas, giving the students good experience
in practical work. After the spring examinations, the class
took part in a two-week practice period in schools outside
the city. Some of the courses covered are Psychology of Education, Philosophy, School Administration and Law.

MOST notable campus achievement of the Teacher
Training group this year was the formation of their
Glee Club. President of the Club was Hugh Sutherland,
its conductor was Rosemary MacLeod, both School of
Education students. At Christmas the choristers gave a
recital at the Vancouver Old People's Home.
During the year the class in Teacher Training participated in many social functions, and took part in many
campus-wide efforts. Although the group did poorly in
the University Blood Drive, with only 21% donating,
their float in the Homecoming Parade drew a good deal
of applause. The float carried students, armed with peashooters, fruit and dunce caps, twisting their legs around
grade-school size desks.
Teacher's Tussle, held in November, was one of the
big events for this year's class. The partygoers wore
teen-age garb, played games, took part in a skit, sang and
danced. The next big item on the agenda of the teachers-
to-be was the Normal School Invasion. The two schools
waged a couple of high-spirited basketball games, before
they settled down to dancing.
The School itself, the students complain, is hampered
by the lack of a proper building. The class scampers for
lectures in the Engineering Building, the Arts Building,
the Arts Huts, the Mall Huts, the Physics Building and
the Chemistry Building.
Executive of the Teacher Training Undergraduate
Society for the 1952-53 session were as follows: Presi
dent, Will Preston; Vice-President, Dorothy Mosher;
Secretary, Norah Farina; Treasurer, Anne Henderson;
Girls' Social Representative, Margaret Robertson; Boys'
Social Representative, Don Forsyth; Girls' Athletic Representative, Joan McKeracher; U.S.C. Representative,

was happy to receive two new

Diane Bancroft, a former U.B.C.
graduate, is now teaching dance here.
Mr. Dick Mitchell has joined the staff

girls taking Physical Education received a short interesting course in
Body Movement from Miss Meredith

led a busy life in the 1952/53 session. First event of
their year was the grads versus undergrads golf tournament, at Homecoming weekend. In January the group
produced their annual show. After some script problems,
a South Pacific theme was decided upon, the show was

Dean Arnold W. Matthews of Pharmacy points out some pertinent facts. In his
first year at U.B.C. the Dean showed great interest in sports, and was helpful in
dealing with some of the University's football problems.
THE biggest news for the Faculty of Pharmacy for the
1952-53 session was the arrival of a new dean. Dr.
Arnold W. Matthews took over the direction of the
Faculty from Acting Dean F. A. Morrison at the beginning of the year. Dr. Matthews was formerly the president of the Ricker Laboratories, Toronto, and director
of the School of Pharmacy at the University of Alberta.
Despite its small enrollment of only 134 students, the
Faculty is housed in one of the finest buildings on the
campus, the Biological Sciences Building. The building
has well-equipped laboratories and a model pharmacy
that is stocked with the most recent drug products. The
pharmacy was set up to provide senior students with
working conditions simulating those of actual practice.
A manufacturing laboratory is equipped for the production of pharmaceuticals, and the faculty hopes soon
to have a medicinal plant garden to complete facilities
for the studying of drugs.

THIS year, the Pharmacy Undergraduate Society promoted a program to gain more recognition in campus
activities for their Faculty, the second smallest group on
the campus. A measure of success was gained in this
regard by two major activities undertaken—the sponsoring
of the first basketball dance of the season, a very successful affair, and by taking top honors, with the Faculty
of Law, in the Homecoming Float Competition.
The individual activities of the students were many and
varied—Ray Counsell and Paul Bass, two fourth year
students, were engaged in research work with chlorophyll
and cascara extractions. Pharmacy students in the University sport field were Gunner Bailey, the leading scorer
on the Thunderbird hockey team, and Glen Smith, captain
of the Rowing Club.
The Undergraduate Society arranged a full social
calendar of parties and dances for Pharmacy students.
The biggest event of their year was the Pharmacy Graduation Banquet and Ball, held March 12.

that take place late in the year. And
in spite of the fact that most activities
appear in the regular divisions there
are some that don't fit anywhere.
Dispersed through the advertising are
little items of interest that will recall
a few fond memories. General meetings, Graduation Class activities, the
swimming pool we almost had, and the
squabble over athletics are just a few.

Twice yearly the University of British Columbia stages
a colossal three-ring circus. Admission is completely
lree, but the outside world seldom hears of it. To the
students of U.B.C. this huge show is known as the Alma
Mater Society General Meeting.
If the topics for discussion are particularly controversial,
and they usually are, the meeting is traditionally bound to
turn into a wholesale Donneybrook, with the student
lawyers in their glory as elocutionists and masters of the
emotive word.
Prior to the Spring meeting, which was scheduled for
Thursday, March 19, the members of the Literary and
Scientific Executive, led by their aspiring journalists,
Johann Stoyva and Ann Choma, published a flyer in which
they emphatically outlined the need for an increase in the
L.S.E. budget.
This revamped budget would, of course, make a sizable
hole in the athletic budget. Now, there is a law on the
campus which says that an organization cannot publish a
flyer when they wish to, and, in this case, the L.S.E. had
been expressly forbidden to publish one.
Once again the campus was to witness the age-old
struggle between the intellectuals and the athletes.
By the time Thursday rolled around, the whole campus
was in a small turmoil. The students flocked in droves to
the Big Top, better known as the Armories, to witness,
and possibly take part in, what was shaping up to be the
biggest show of the year.
ow on
The minutes were declared adopted as read, the first
contentious point was flung in, and the stage was set.
Johann Stoyva took the bull by the tail, looked it squarely
in the face, and plunged into an explosive discourse on the
relative merits of the L.S.E., and its dire need for "lounges
where refreshments can be served."
Here was a challenge which no true athlete could let
pass undisputed. Art Phillips, the slow-talking ex-basketball star, elected to speak in opposition. There followed a
20-minute analysis of the L.S.E. flyer, not column by
column, but paragraph by paragraph. The crowd was
going wild.
Next speaker was the president of the unheard-of
Historical Society, foster child of the L.S.E. His opening
remark was, "I'm not going to be funny." He was greeted
by shouts of "Sit down." If there is anything that goes
over well at an A.M.S. meeting it is humor.
By this time the queue of would-be speakers was rapidly
growing. Boos and cat-calls filled the air. All three rings
of the mammoth circus were in full swing.
The final outcome of the show was a deadlock between
the L.S.E. and the M.A.D. But the students had seen a
good performance, and they really didn't care what was
decided as long as it would cost them no money.
As usual, the athletes won, and they hung on to their
money for another year.

True to tradition, the Engineers swamped the annual
meeting of the graduates in order to pick those whom they
wished on the executive. This year the pattern changed.
They allowed one woman and one Commerce man to hold
executive positions. The woman was Mary Fran Munro,
vice-president; the man was Mike Ferrie, treasurer. On
the distaff side, the Engineers were Lawrence Bockhold,
president; Al Cagney, social convener, and John Wood,
Professor W. N. Sage was asked to be Honorary President of the class, and Miss Marjorie Learning was Honorary Vice-President.
Other officers, too, were named. Valedictorians, Tom
Franck and Gerry Main; Class Poet, Florence McNeil;
Class Will, George Campbell; Class Historian, Tom
Franck; Class Prophet, Myra Green.
The Class Executive planned all the sundry activities
for the group. The first of these was the annual Grad
Cruise, more widely known as the "Booze Cruise", to
Bowen Island. Held on May 2, immediately following
exams, it was a howling success, owing to the number of
both undergraduates and graduates present. Only one
slip-up occurred. Unknowing Engineers had posted huge
signs stating that "Joe's the Man for Mary Fran!". Unfortunately, he wasn't.

Sunday, May 17, saw the Baccalaureate Service, during
which Father H. Carr introduced U.B.C.'s new graduates
to the formal Graduation Exercises.
The 1953 Graduating Class made another step in the
completion of the War Memorial Gymnasium. The Class
gift was a trophy case for the foyer. In the plans for over
five years, it remained for the 1953 class to bring it into
reality. Further completion of the Gym would have to
wait for other generous donors or until 1958 when current
debts on the Gym would be paid off.
Another feature of the Graduation Ceremony was the
double valedictory—the first by Tom Franck (Law '53),
and the second by Gerry Main (P.E. '53), retiring president of the M.A.D.
The class tree was planted opposite the Law Building,
adding another in the long line running down the East Mall.
An appropriate stone marker was implanted before the
sprouting plant.
The climax of the activities was the Graduation Ball,
held as usual in the Commodore. Celebrations lasted until
2:00 a.m., and afterwards for the hardy. As the graduates
dragged their tired bodies home after a night of revelry,
each started in a new line of thought and endeavor, each
in a different direction.

Striking without warning early in November, the
Engineers took the props out from under 5500 students
when they fiendishly removed the toilet seats from all rest-
rooms on the campus. Only one building remained
untouched.   The Engineering building.
Frantic students scoured the buildings only to find that
the crafty Engineers had systematically removed each and
every seat on the campus. It was a cold week for the seat
of learning.
By the end of the first week of "doing without", the
Administration decided to do something to remedy the
chilling situation. A letter was sent to the Student Council
demanding that the students themselves take action to
restore comfort.  Nothing could be done because no seats
could be found. The unseen foe was a wily one. Further
warnings caused a slow trickle of seats to return to the
barren restrooms.
The cold war, however, was not completely over for a
long, uncomfortable three weeks.
Artistically draped festoons of tops for bottoms could
be seen during this period from various vantage points on
the campus. But they were no sooner seen than they disappeared. At one time, the University Boulevard was
lined on both sides by wire-strung tops.
To this day, no one knows just how the Engineers gained
entrance to all the buildings, but their action caused the
bottom to drop out of almost all functions on the campus.

Here today and gone tomorrow might well sum up the
story of the U.B.C. swimming pool. For the past year
students had gazed at a sign just west of the new gym
which hopefuly stated this area would be the site of the
new pool. Then in March the Ubyssey scooped the downtown papers with the news that the British Empire Games
Committee had decided to build the swimming pool they
needed at U.B.C.
At this news, students immediately envisioned an
Olympic-sized pool, complete with seating capacity and
high diving board, rising alongside the War Memorial Gym.
Unfortunately, certain citizens in Vancouver also saw
the pool at U.B.C., but in not such a favorable light. They
raised the hue and cry that by building the pool at U.B.C.
the people of Vancouver wouldn't be able to use it as much.
Angry groups of people protested to the B.E.G. Committee, the City Council, and the Government to have the
site of the pool changed. Percy Norman, of the Vancouver
Amateur Swimming Association, was a prominent figure
leading the groups who were against the pool at the
Many arguments were brought forth for and against the
pool site. The pro-U.B.C. faction stated that a pool at
the university would mean a saving in maintenance, heating and general operating costs as the university would
take charge after the British Empire Games were over.
184 £
ne ^tomorrow
Other advantages would be that students from all over
B. C. would be using the pool; the government would pay
the cost of roofing the structure after the games; and Van-
couverites would be able to use the pool at certain times
during the day, and at night and on week-ends.
The groups against these ideas argued that the people in
Vancouver wouldn't be able to get to the pool, the location
should be changed to a more central location. They also
stated that if the money to build the pool for the games
was coming from the government and the people of B. C,
the pool should be available full time for the use of everyone, not just five thousand university students.
In answer to the problem of money to run and roof the
pool, it was argued that the Parks Board could meet any
additional operating expenses that couldn't be paid by
charging a nominal admission to the public. To cover the
cost of the roof, it was proposed to present a money by-law
to the people and hope that they would pass it.
After much deliberation and the loss of precious building
time before the games, the Games Committee finally
decided to build the pool at Riley Park, in the heart of
Consequently, the students of U.B.C. will gaze on the
sign marking the site of a pool for the university for many
years to come, hoping someday the pool will be there
today and there tomorrow also.

Early in the spring a new phenomena appears on the
campus. Small groups are seen together in hushed whispers.
Rumours fly thick and fast. Campus leaders look suspi-
cously at other campus leaders wondering what they intend
to do next.
Election time has come.
As the deadlines for nominations on the first slate
approach, the buzz increases. "If he runs, I won't; if she
runs, I will."
As committees are lined up, the rumours are confirmed;
the nomination papers are posted, and fight begins.
Brightly colored posters spring up everywhere. Signboards are covered with suggestions on how to vote. Large
banners greet the commuters in the morning as they approach the campus. As the students leave they are bid
farewell for the day by the same banners, for the campaign
committees have turned their signs around.
Students start their classes by being introduced to the
candidates who speak to them for two minutes. After ten
minutes the professors sometimes got annoyed. It often
seemed that government and history professors got the
most annoyed at student democratic processes.
(fritter L^i
At meetings in the auditorium a handful listened quietly
to hoards of promises, charges and counter-charges. Loudspeakers accompanied the munching of sandwiches during
the noon hours as students had the names of the candidates shoved into their ears.
Some candidates entertained their prospective supporters with hastily put together bands.
In the first slate were the contestants for A.M.S. president, A.M.S. secretary and Chairman of U.S.C. Interest
in student government was foretold as the latter two positions went by acclamation to Aggie student Ann Cooper
and Engineer Jim McNish.
But in the presidential race the battle royal began. Four
candidates entered the fray.
First was Ivan Feltham, a second year law student, who
had run two years previous for the same position and was
beaten out by politico Vaughn Lyon. Feltham was a
former junior member and had risen to fame as Chairman of Open House the preceding year.
Second was Joe Schlesinger, Artsman editor of the
Ubyssey. Persistent critic both in the paper and at A.M.S.
general  meetings,   Schlesinger  made  an  unprecedented

move in running for the presidency. No other pubster had
ever tried to gain favor with the student body.
The other two candidates were Jim Boulding and Bruce
Lee. Boulding, who became known as chairman of the
"Sunday Night Club", a backroom athletic investigation
committee, campaigned on the basis of a clean-cut liberator "fighting for student rights." Well-known in fraternity
circles and amongst his second year law class, Lee had
little to offer in experience in A.M.S. affairs.
Every political trick and campaign gimmick was used
except, perhaps, kissing babies. Feltham was fined five
dollars for failing to take down one of his signs before
polling day. Schlesinger left part of one of his banners in
the cafeteria.
As usual confusion arose over the preferential transferable voting system. Some polling clerks allowed "plumping" as in the B.C. elections, others didn't.
At the end of the day, the candidates bit their nails,
and paced the floor nervously awaiting the word from their
scrutineers who were locked in the counting room.
Hours dragged on as the returning officers went through
successive counts and recounts under the transferable
voting system. After hot debate Elections Committee
Chairman Geoffrey Pringle decided that under the constitution plumping would be disallowed, and unless all
choices were completed the ballot would be considered
Finally one candidate got an absolute majority and the
scrutineers dashed for the telephones to announce that
Ivan Feltham was the president of the A.M.S. for 1953-54.
In a statement to the Ubyssey Feltham said, "My major
policy in the coming session will be to get as many students
as possible active in student affairs, and ask them to work
together to build a strong effective student government
that will command the respect of the student, faculty and
off campus friends as well."
A little under half of the 5,300 student body has voted,
and after three successive counts Feltham squeezed
through as victor by only 138 votes on the last count.
Before the excitement of the first slate had subsided,
the second wave was underway. Up for competition were
the positions of A.M.S. treasurer, president of the W.U.S
and president of M.A.D.
As usual there were a couple of positions that went by
acclamation. W.A.D. seemed to agree that there was no
one better than Marilyn Russel, and no one except Mike
Nuttall would consider co-ordinator, a hot spot on the
Battling out the treasurer's position were Gerry Duclos
and Totem editor Allan Goldsmith. Duclos, the incumbent
treasurer, was an ex-Kickapoo before obtaining his Council
blazer. Goldsmith, in addition to his Totem job, had been
president of I.F.C. and executive editor of the Pub.
Peter Luzstig, M.A.D. secretary, ran against Sports
Editor Bill Hutchison for president of M.A.D. Janie
Wright and Nan Adamson contested for W.U.S. presidency.

The second slate was characterized by eagerness on the
part of the candidates and disinterest on the part of the
students. At the Tuesday noon speeches in the auditorium
there were more people on the stage than in the audience.
At an evening meeting in Fort Camp six residents who
happened to be reading textbooks in the study hall heard
five candidates discuss what was wrong and why. Student
apathy was a major topic.
On voting day 1576 students happened by the polls.
Again the candidates nervously paced the floor as returning officers spent six hours counting ballots.
In the treasurer's race ballots were counted four times
as only a few votes separated winner and loser. In the
original count Goldsmith led by two votes, in the second
count he led by one vote, in the third count he led by three
votes, in fourth count he led by 107 when all the ballots
that were not perfectly marked were thrown out.
Luztig won by 19 votes for the athletic position, and
Nan Adamson won decisively over opponent Janie Wright.
What purported to be a complete anti-climax in the
third and last slate was broken by a controversy over the
election rules.
At nomination deadline no one had filed for Sophomore
member. The elections committee decided, therefore, to
extend the deadline another 24 hours. Like air into a
vacuum, no less than six eager freshmen jumped into the
fray. They were Richard Drayton, Gerry Hodge, John
Bossons, Peter Jefferson, Carol Gregory and Bob Gillies.
The same extension was applied to Junior member. But
on a technicality Janie Wright claimed the position by acclamation. She said that by the constitution she was
allowed 24 hours to file as a defeated candidate, and nominations could not be extended until no one applied to run.
Miss Wright claimed that nominations could not be declared reopened until the deadline for defeated candidates
The elections committee turned her claim down and
allowed the other candidates to file their nomination papers.
Miss Wright appealed to the Council, and after a heated
and lengthy debate they upheld the decision of the committee.
President-elect Feltham stated the council's position
when he said that the purpose of the rule was to enable
people to run, not to prevent them from running.
All the talk was so much hot air when Campbell Robinson was declared ineligible and Janie Wright withdrew,
leaving Howie Beck the position by acclamation.
Contesting the vice-presidency were Engineer Ed Jake-
man, Lawyer Dick Underhill, and C.C.F. president Pat
With so many candidates running the students didn't
know who represented what. Underhill was finally declared the new Veep, and Bob Gillies, a Radio Society
type, was elected Junior Member.
After it was all over there were still a few students who
asked what some of the initials stood for.

by manufacturing equipment for the generation and transmission of electric power
as well as a wide range of products that put it to work
At one time or another, almost everybody
in Canada has beenaffected,either directly
or indirectly, through some use of a G-E
product—whether it's a giant generator
or a simple fuse plug, an electric motor
which runs an elevator or the electronic
control that speeds thenewspaper presses,
a labor-saving appliance in the home or
a two-way radio that summons a taxi.
Canadian General Electric is proud to
have played a part, for sixty years, in the
ever-growing electrical development of
Canada. It is equally proud that the
wide range of electrical equipment it
produces, the household appliances and
the many types of lamps for home and
industry, are helping to make life easier
and more enjoyable for all of us.

essential ingredient
oi industry
♦ ♦ ♦
Paints and perfumes, dyes and drugs, all depend
upon high-grade alcohol as their basis of manufacture. In fact, of the great diversity of man-
made products there are few which do not use
alcohol in some form during their manufacture.
United Distillers Limited devotes an entire
section of their sprawling B.C. plant to the
production of high-grade industrial alcohol. The
product is subject to constant testing to maintain its quality ta meet the exacting demands
of scientific and industrial consumers.
United Distillers are justly proud of their chemists and technicians whose craftsmanship and
skill produces quolity industrial alcohol, a substance now vitally integrated in the pattern of
industrial progress, and becoming thus, invaluable  to the  upward march af mankind.

Sound judgment stems from experience . . . but experience
takes time! For instance, Jenkins Bros, for more than
half a century have been learning through experience to
make the longest-lasting, lowest-upkeep valves money can
While you gain experience, profit by the knowledge of
others. Thousands of industries, relying at first on the
reputation of Jenkins Bros., know from experience now
that valves bearing the famous Jenkins diamond trade
mark have extra endurance . . . give trouble-free service
longer. Uninterrupted production and low upkeep records
are proof of the sound judgment that specifies Jenkins
We invite you to consult us on any problem concerning
proper valve selection, installation or maintenance.

^■^ the growth of Woodward's into
a great Family Shopping Institution.
Since its beginning in 1892 this
pioneer firm, still owned and controlled by the founding family, has
kept pace with the rapid development
of Western Canada, supplying the
needs of a growing population.
Besides the large main store in Vancouver, Woodward's today has stores
in West Vancouver, Port Alberni and
Victoria on Vancouver Island and in
Edmonton, Alberta. A sixth 'Family
Shopping Centre' is now under construction in New Westminster.
Woodward's is a Western Canadian
enterprise owned and operated by
people who have made the West their
home. Profits of the company are
shared with the employees who are
vitally interested in continuing the
friendly relations of the past.
We look forward to a greater future
bringing to you the merchandise
and services demanded by a growing country.
Your Family Shopping Centre
in action on your own work and see for yourself
its many advantages.
The Fully Automatic model, the only calculator
with simultaneous push-button multiplication, is
ideal for heavy-volume figure-work. The low-cost
Semi-Automatic model is popular where the work
is lighter. Both are available in 8 or 10 bank
capacities . . . choose whichever fits your requirements and business budget.

Harold Weir, a favorite of many readers among The Vancouver
Sun's interesting group of writers, doesn't set out to redress the
ills of the world in time for each Home Edition. He is rather in
the ancient and honorable line of journalistic essayists who ponder
thoughtfully and write entertainingly. The tools of this craft are
a well-furnished mind and a gift for the language. Mr. Weir's
admirers grant him both.   Look for Weir in The Sun regularly.

. . . except for the union label, you have come to the end.
If you're interested in that sort of thing, you have noticed
that this year's Totem is somewhat different. The style
has gone so informal that if you can find it you win a prize.
The introductory section was a complete experiment in
color lithography. No one in Vancouver has ever tried it
before, or will ever try it again. It attempts to make two
colors appear as four.
To make the plan of the book somewhat intelligible we
have tipped in the division pages in a different kind of
paper and lithographed the pictures in duotone. We
have even gone so far as to explain what each section is
all about.
And if, heaven help you, you haven't figured out the
theme of this book from the conglomeration of "Toties"
and girders, we now come to your rescue. The Foundations of Tomorrow is the inspiration.
The cover is a concession to costs. We have conducted
no experiments as to its lasting qualities, but we hope you
like its design. It is made of imported materials. All
from the U. S.
You have noticed, also, a few errors, especially if
someone else's name is under your picture. You may
console yourself in knowing that after three years of
experimenting we and the A.M.S. have finally hit on a
foolproof system of taking graduation photographs. We
thank you, martyrs to a good cause.
As to the other mistakes, please have pity on us. The
staff of the Totem writes exams just like normal students.
For most of the staff, working on the Totem was the
biggest mistake.
Our eternal blessing to Ben Hilltout for his pictures of
campus scenes and buildings. The color section contains
mostly his pictures. Thanks also to Ralph Mackenzie of
Sunprinting and Allan Clark of Cleland-Kent Engraving.
We hope they didn't lose their shirts on this one.
The editor sincerely hopes that his staff will get some
small reward in the pleasure that a few may have in
reading this book, and that in one sense this is not . . .
• . . the end
