Forestry engineering in Canada
was s.v-nrply criticized in an address
Thursday night by H. R. MacMillan,
C.B.E., who described the forestry
department at UBC as "too academic
and too sedentary." Mr. MacMillan
was speaking to the Society of Forest Engineers in the Hotel Vancouver.
Mr. MacMillan charged that the
Canadian profession is far behind
that of the United States, both in
sustained yield management and administration.
The speaker claimed that too many
insufficiently trained foresters was
ons of the reasons for the Canadian
lag and scored the UBC school. "(It)
has not risen to potentialities. It h s
been too academic and too s-eedcntaiy.
There is not enough field work." he
Politics was advanced as another
reason for the lack of a progressive
forest policy. Mr. MacMillan urged
the establishment of a centralized
forest service in Canada and stated
that the Fed;nil Government mad.' a
big mistake in remquishing control
of the forest lands of the prairie
On the campus opinion amongst
the students seems to side with the
charges if applied to the old course.
The new course, initiated this term,
calls for much more practical work.
Sam Parnum and Dave Ritchie,
both fourth year students and members of the executive of the Forest
Club both hold this view, and stress
the need of practical work which
will be available to students now in
first year Arts and first year Forestry
Eruce Low, also a fourth year
student and member of the executive of the club, commented on the
reported opening of tha head of the
department when Professor J, E.
Liersch leaves this spring.
"I hope that the new head of the
forestry department will be a man
with   practical  experience."   he   said.
Professor Liarsch, commenting r n
the charges said " I think that sum,:
of the charges are justified. However, he (Mr. MacMillan) pointed out
that some of the objection.; are bcin",
rectified. The improvements, for
which we have been striving for years,

Blood Donors Unit
Here On March 10
Free blood donations will be requested of University students when a mobile blood donor clinic will visit the Reading
Room, in one of the two huts behind Brock Hall, on Monday,
March 10. The blood is to be used for any hospital patient in
British Columbia who needs it.
"All the free coffee and coke they'-
can drink," is offered donors "before
and after the service," according to
Ted Kirkpatrick, President of the
Alma Mater Society,
The reading room, in one of two
huts behind Brock Hall, will be
equipped by the Canadian Red Cross
Society with 15 beds.
"Students will give their blood free
of charge," said Ailine Redlich, third
year pre-med student and former
Red Cross worker. No charge for the
blood will be made to civilian and
veterans' hospitals.
No special diet is necessary for any
student who donates blood, according
to Red Cross officials. The whole
procedure, from the time a person
enters the clinic, has a sample
made of his blood, gives his blood
and has some refreshment, takes half
an hour.
The Red Crass mobile clinic can
handle 150 students daily and 1500
during its three week stay.
"It i.s doubtful if any blood donor
bank books will be distributed," Miss
Redlich, ex-Red Cross worker stated.
Students may bring in their bank
books, however, and have the amount
of their blood donation recorded.
"We are especially after non-veteran students," Miss Redlich stated.
"Servicemen did their bit, but we
would be pleased to see them again."
The Red Cross has three motorized
blood donor units which are visiting
various towns in B.C. this year to
give full coverage to the province.
Each clinic is staffed by a doctor,
a  nurse   and  technicians.

an oversight".
UBC Has 'Best Setting*
Say Hew Zealand Students
"The Univeristy of British Columbia has the best setting
of any Canadian university," was the opinion of the 12 New
Zealand biology students who visited the campus last weekend
on a three month tour of North American universities.
The  12 students,  nine women  and
three men are making the tour to
' study the biology departments of
various universities. They have al-
I ready visited universities in the
eastern United States and Canada and
left this morning for a visit to eastern
American universities.
When questioned as to whether the
tour was being made on university
time, one of the students smilingly
reminded the reporter that it was
now summer in New Zealand and
they were on their holidays. They
explained that their school term begins in March, which is autumn to
them and ends in November. It is
divided into three terms with a two
weeks   holiday   between  each  term,

course is quite different from theirs.

Many students are now asking themselves amined by a written test and interview scheme
this question, but the fact is, they don't know, sponsored by the psychology department. This
In first year they are usually certain of their
aim, blissfully unaware of what is to be required of them. It is not until second or third year
that the great realization occurs. The likely
result at this point is a decision to stumble
through and get a degree. This means they go
through life wishing that they had done something else.
There are, of course, many exceptions. Boyhood dreams do sometimes pay off. But in
general the freshman is not fully aware of
what his capabilities might be. His choice of
career is often based on information gained
from friends and relatives, seldom on a conclusive investigation of facts.
If the students could only know what they
were destined to do they could shape their
courses to much greater advantage. The most
logical means of reaching such an end is presented in psychological tests. Through the application of a well organized authoritative series
of tests the student could be advised of his aptitudes. Such a test could well be administered
at registration in first year, or, better still in
the final year in high school. The tests need
not necessarily be obligatory but surely thinking people will realize how little they know of
themselves, and accept the advice.

Two varied years

I sat in a draughty

his  plans for  the  com-
plete   eradication   of     the     German
people. If, in the deceptive clarity
of wiirtimv; outlook, I agreed with
him at that time, two years has done
much  to  reverse my  views.
From the days when old Tacitus
first described the German character,
up to the present day, Germany has
rrnrked all her foreign dealings with
n   crushing  brutality   -   not  tha  half
apologetic cruelty of France, nor
the benevolent ruthlessness of Britain, but a sweeping, smashing violence.
And yet - somebody said it, Plato
or Dante - it is only the truly great
who can attain to extremes of good
- or evil - and this has been the
characteristic of Germany - a country inconceivably great, where the
weight of a feather has turned the
bul nee for right or wrong, For
the future the endeavour must be
to so weight the scales, that, tli3
greatness remaining, the product will
benefit the world.
plan was devised to determine whether or not
the students should make application for admittance to medical schools. It is, however, unfortunate that the test had not been offered when
the students were in first year, instead of now
after they have, more or less wasted three and
four years.
In addition to the pre-med tests, the Psychology Department cooperated with the DVA
to examine veteran students before registration !

Some already have aptitude tests of a sort and
most have I Q tests.
There is, nevertheless, a very real need for
the institution of a thorough service of this

they are going to be happy when they get there.

With the closing of the year 1946 there
came the retirement of one of the best known
and best liked Agricultural professors. This
retirement was that of Professor Frank E.
Buck. ,
As a commemoration to this outstanding
professor, the Agriculture Students, under the
direction of their executive, are sponsoring
an Apple Day and a Dance to raise funds to
obtain a fountain for the Lily Pond in front
of the Library. ,
This is truly a commendable dedication.
It will not only pay due tribute to such a beloved lecturer but it will also be a great aid
in maintaining the pristine beauty of our
lovely campus. ,
Professor Buck while lecturing at UBC
also held important positions in Professional
Societies. As President of the Town Planning
Institute of Canada and the Northwest Association of Planning Officials, he has served his
community wisely. He has also been the
University representative of the Architectural
Institute of B.C. for fifteen years and a member

him - was to play th; part of a
pioneer. The long twin curves of
German music and German poetry
come to a complete union in the
greatest song writer of them all -
Franz Schubert.

most prominently in his ability to
seize in his music on the deepest

he is composing - and to arrive thereby  at  a  song  that  leaves  no  shade

he may be in the majority but his

view?—All of them. They make such

a thing.
Mr. Cole arrives at the appalling
assumption that people who advocate
political freedom for the negroes wish
to deprive the 90 percent white population of theirs. Mr. Robeson stated
that the racial question was mixed

rather against dictatorships. This is

dictatorships had better consider

Many commerce students are not
aware of the various medals, scholarships, and bursaries that are available
to them at all stages of their University education. Every effort is made
by the government, the University,
and the public to help students complete a successful education, Not only
are these patrons anxious to see students finish their education but also
to see students who are proficient,
in their year, rewarded. As a result
of this feeling, the following awards
have been made available to Com-
mercemen. (The Calendar should be
consulted for particulars.)
The Kiwanis Club Gold Medal is
awarded to the head of the graduating class for the B. Com. Degree.
This is given by the Kiwanis Club
of Vancouver,
The University Graduate Scholarship is awarded to graduating students
who are going on in their studies at
this or any other University. Also
for those students continuing their
studies is the Anne Wesbrook Scholar,
In an effort to reward Commerce
Undergraduates for their scholastic
standing, and all around ability,
many patrons have given scholarships.
The following are open to commerce
undergraduates: Tht Terminal City
Club Memorial Scholarship for second
year students; The N, Leo Klein
Memorial Scholarship for third year
students; The Edwin Waterhouse
Scholarship for third year students;
The Alaska Pine Company Scholarship for second year student*; The
Woodward Scholarship for first in
Commerce 261, the other for first in
Commerce 467.
One other Scholarship has been
given recently by the Transportation
and Customs Bureau of the Vancouver Board of Trade which does not
appear in the Calendar. This Scholarship is for the best report in each
of four fields of transportation in
Commerce 400.
For those students with high schol-
i astic standing and who are in financial
need, the following bursaries are
available: The Captain Le Roy Memorial Bursary, The Khaki University
and the Young Men's Christian Association Memorial Fund Bursary,
* The Rotary Memorial Bursaries, The
Jack Cohen Bursary, The McLean
Bursary, The Nat Bell Bursary, The
RCAF Veterans Bursary Fund, The
Teamster's Joint Council No. 36 Bursary, The Lauder Mercer and Company Ltd. Bursary, and the Special
Bursaries Fund.
Many of these awards are not automatic and must be applied for. All
of these are worth while striving for,

Morrow Praises
Commerce Grads
Never before have I so reluctantly
put pen to paper for the task of writing "valete" to a graduating class.
There are many reasons for this reluctance, One is that during your
short stay at the University you have
contributed immeasurably to the
growth of the Department of Commerce in performance and in strength
as well as in numbers.
One naturally feels reluctant to see
leaving us men and women with
whom We have closely associated
during years of success and expansion.
Stronger, however, is the feeling
that because of the large numbers,
with the inevitable dispersal of senior
classes and weight of administration
thereby entailed, I feel that for the
first time in my academic career
I am writing good-bye to many students whom we have failed to get
to know as well as we should have
liked. The "hubbub" of daily contact on the campus lays without consciousness the foundation for a nostalgic relationship that lasts through
the years between the graduate and
his teacher. It is no idle platitude
lo say that durable friendships are
made in college days not only between student and student but also
between  student and instructor.
Be assured, therefore, that you leave
behind you friends, who, in the years
to come will share vicariously in the
successes and promotions that lie before you.
Speaking personally, I have confidence enough in you and the education you have received to believe
that the class of 1947, by and large,
is ready and able to grasp its opportunities.   Valete.

The positions of publicity director,

representation of the undergrads.
A new system of voting has been
inaugurated this year. Formerly,
nominees for the executive posts
were voted upon in a general meeting by a show of hands. In order
that ii may be easier for all students
in Commerce to exercise their rights,
voting will be by secret ballot, in
the foyer of the auditorium on Tuesday, March 4th.
The executive feels that those' students unable to attend the campaign
meeting at which the platforms will
be presented will still be able to vote
for their choice of candidate.
Frank Phillips has also inaugurated
the plan of electing the entire executive simultaneously, rather than wait
until next fall to establish thu entire
group. It is felt, that in this manner,
those elected may get an early start
on planning next year's activities.

Chartered Accountants
Unappreciated By Public
In spite of the many years which have elapsed since accounting (in its widest sense) was recognized as a special calling
and legislation was enacted for the establishment and regulation
of societies and institutes of accountants - thus elevating it to
the status of a professional - comparatively little is known of
the professional or chartered accountant. Even in the business
world he is too often looked upon merely as an expert bookkeeper or as some sort of industrial mathematician.
The lack of understanding or ap-<^
B of C Course '
Now 5 Years
One of the greatest changes in a
curriculum that has taken place for
many years at the University of B.C,
is materializing in the Commerce
Department's plans for a 5 year
course for a Bachelor of Commerce
The first three years of the planned
5 year course remains nearly the
same, except that a new intermediate
accounting course will be a prerequisite which must be taken in the third
year. This course is designed to
bridge the wide gap between elementary and advanced accounting.
In the fourth year 18 units must be
taken with Labour Problems and
Industrial Management as added
compulsory subjects in addition to
Commercial Lav/ and Business Finance.
This leaves room for two electives
to be chosen so as to conform with
the requirements of the option groupings covering the fourth and fifth
years of the course. These groups
of options are designed to meet the
needs of a student's special interests.
It is intended to have about ten
groups of options or electives which,
however, will be of % flexible nature.
A student who wishes to select courses from two or three groups may do
so except when he is selecting his
options in conjunction with other
departments of the University, such
as Agriculture or Forestry, when the
full group of options of courses must
be taken.
The main groups of options planned so far are: Accounting, Foreign
Trade, Fisheries, Marketing, Production, Transportation, Agriculture,
Forestry, Statistics, and Language.
preciation of the professional accountant is due, in part, to the technical
nature of much of his work which is
not easily explained to the layman
and, perhaps, to some extent to the
ethical inhibition against blatant publicity or advertising.
But it is also attributable to the
fact that people who merely keep
books, that is, make entries to record
financial transactions of any sort, are
also known as "accountants". The
higher types of accounting, the work
of auditing, of investigation, of a
dozen different branches of research,
report and presentation which only
the trained specialist can undertake,
constitute the diffeernce between the
chartered accountant and the bookkeeper or ordinary accountant, making the comparison invidious to the
For the benefit of those who are
thinking of seeking opportunity for
becoming students in the offices of
practising chartered accountants the
following remarks may be helpful.
The desirable and essential qualifications of a Chartered accountant -
whether he eventually enters public
practice or not - are integrity, a
studious mind, high ambition and
gieat  determination,
The profession is proud of the high
standard of honourable and dependable conduct which has been firmly
established as a professional attribute
and has consistently characterized its
So much of the work of professional
accountant is of a confidential nature,
so much depends upon his honesty
of purpose and his disinterested attitude in dealing with the affairs of
others where his opinion or decision
is required, that moral courage and
stamina are of prime importance
among desirable characteristics,
The scope of study now required
of students under articles of service
demand concentrated effort for a long
period and mental capacity of a high
order. The period of study lor qualifying finally by examination is none
too long for the standard of fitness
demanded.   The student is compelled
not only to be consistently resolute
in his efforts to succeed, but he should
be convinced that the goal he seeks,
when achieved, will reward his work
and efforts.

Summer Courses
The 1947 Summer Session will be

August 16, under the direction of

Five lectures a week, of two hours
duration, will be held in each subject, lectures to commence at 8:00

maximum of two courses per student will be allowed.
Several courses of interest to Commerce students will also be offered

dents' life and one of the leading
functions of the business year. The
banquet provides an excellent opportunity for the business men to view,
in part, a function of our university
and to develop a closer relationship
with the future business men and
women of the Province. To further
this plan the seating arrangements
are such as to permit a maximum of
intermingling of guests and students.
Convening the banquet are Professor
EH. Morrow and CUS President,
Frank Phillips ably assisted by the
CUS Executive and Commerce students. Distinguished guests will include the Chancellor of UBC, Mr.
Hamber; the President, Dr. McKenzie;
Dean Swanson; Mr. T. Braidwood;
Mr. E.G. Rowebottom; Mr. H.A. Ren-
wick; Mr. H. Merilees; and President
of the AMS, Ted Kirkpatrick.
The banquet is an undergraduate
effort and so it is fitting that the
toasts should be proposed by students
who are representatives of our Commerce Society. A second year student, Ray Dewar, will pay tribute
to the graduating class' for the work
they haVe accomplished during their
undergraduate life. The Board oi
Trade, who have been so willingly
co-operative with the Commerce Department, will be honored by CUS
Executive Member, Fred Jeffrey.
Robert Young ,a graduating student,
will speak on behalf of the Commerce society to thank the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association for their
whole-hearted support
Ticket sales indicate a capacity
audience will be in attendance for
this major University function, and
we sincerely hope that this year's
banquet will be an even greater success than those of previous years
Federal Service
Needs Graduates
With the exception of technical departments Commerce graduates should
be able to find a suitable niche in
vractically any department of government.
It must be remmbered, however,
that government service is largely
anonymous, Salaries on the whole
are modest, thus achievement cannot
be measured in terms of monetary
gain alone. Service to the country
is—and should be one's aim if satisfaction is to be achieved.
As stated, entrance to the public
service is through competitive examination conducted by the Civil service commission of Canada. Announcements of vacancies are displayed in
universities, public libraries, post
offices, National Employment offices
and elsewhere.
Commerce Votes Today
Today the polling booths are the
centers of Commerce election enthusiasm as the many Commerce
undergraduates cast their votes. In
the limelight are Al Bergstrom, Art
Botham and Bob Wilson who are
contesting for the presidency of the
Al Bergstrom, formerly a lieutenant in the RCNVR, has recently become active in campus activities. Al
was one of the founders of the campus' newest fraternity, Tau Omega,
and is now acting as its social coordinator. Much of the publicity
which the Mardi Gras received was
due to his efforts, Al is also active
as a cross country runner.
Art Botham served during the war
as Flying Officer in the RCAF. He
has been active on several committees under the CUS and has recently
handled the major part of the downtown ticket sales for the Commerce
Bob Wilson, after several unsuccessful attempts to enter the
armed services, took up work in
ordnance plants during the war. His
experience in Commerce activities
has been considerable. Dining the
1945-46 regular session he was the
second year representative in the
CUS. Bob has also been active on
several Commerce committees this
year and is the present chairman of
the School of Business council.
Art Ryan and Tom Harris, who
both served in the armed services,

I THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, March 4,1947. Page 4
Tht> cry for "Commerce as a Faculty"
will never be heard if supported by no better
reason than to add prestige to our degree. No
particular prestige is attached to the word
"Faculty"; it is the quality of the training behind the degree that is significant.
Since the establishment of a Commerce
Department in 1938, enrollment has multiplied
tenfold, many more and better courses have
been given, and, particularly, downtown business has become aware of us. Their growing
interest and generosity presages even greater
possibilities for the future.
More than ever before we are able to
specialize our efforts and to select the proper
background for our future vocation. The five-
year course will help us materially in doing
this, not only because of the extra fields to
be explored and the more advanced courses
to be taken, but also because of the opportunity
afforded to take the extra English, Mathematics, and Economics courses which form
the foundation of the educated man or woman.
To a great extent it lies with Commerce
students as to how far we advance along lines
of organizational independence. Business
must find in the Commerce graduate the attributes of an educated mind, a mind trained to
reason and assimiliate, and a background of
practical business principles.
On the campus, too, the Commerce students must reveal their worth in the assistance and leadership they give to Undergraduate affairs. If the potential strength of the
Commerce group is felt on and off the Campus,
further recognition is inevitable. The time
will come when a distinctive Commerce organization will lend prestige to the University.
Let us think in terms of a School of Business, rather than a Faculty. Such an organization would meet the growing demands of a
rapidly expanding technical field.
More freedom would be given to the
School in arranging courses. More specialization could be effected along particular ilnes.
Visiting instructors could be more readily secured to meet specific needs. Post graduate
studies would be inaugurated to permit advanced training. British Columbia's diversified industries would prove a strong attraction
for graduate study for students from all over
The outcome of such development would
be greater service from our University, more
utility in our education, and enhanced prestige
for our degree. Such development lies with us;
we must show the need.   —By Frank Phillips.
The Mummery
My qualifications for admission to this
Commerce issue of the Ubyssey rest upon a
shaky pass in Economics 100, which I took
in my first year and which convinced me beyond doubt that I was not the executive type.
My marks on the April exam clearly indicated
that I was cut out for the proletariat, just
one of the flabbier faces in the mob at the*
gates. I went into the examination room convinced of the merits of free enterprise, and
left it a rabid socialist, deep pink from ear to
But, though I have forsaken forever the
possibility of putting my number nines on a
solid mohogany desk, with a dictaphone in
one hand and a stenographer in the other, I
continue to take a lively layman's interest in
matters commercial. Recently, for example,
I have been cheered to note that newspaper
advertisers are announcing clearance sales.
Merchandise ordinarily selling for $4.00 has
been marked down to $4.25. They're not selling
anything anybody wants to buy, of course,
but I seem to detect a new note in their advertisings note of entreaty, of cajolery even,
unheard since before the war. Until very
lately, the average ad ran something like this:
ONLY $3.50 EACH, OR 18.00 A PR.
(No (air bringing yow mother)
These socks went on sale at a certain time
during the day, a zero hour which remained
secret with God,, the general manager of the
store, and the head of the men's socks depart
ment. Perhaps at 0900 hrs. or 1115 hrs, or 1529
hrs, a clerk would suddenly look expectant,
there would be a woosh of customers, and
seconds later both counter and clerk would be
stripped bare. If you arrived fifteen minutes
late you got nothing and the clerks ganged up
and beat you over the head with their receipt
But gradually the scene is changing. To
be hired as a department store clerk it is no
longer enough merely to hate people. Word
is passing around that, under certain circumstances, the customer may be right.
And the other day the papers carried a
full-page department store ad with a streamer

the towel ($2.50, Main Floor). One gained
a vivid picture of the store's executives lying
in the window beneath upturned tables, smiling gamely as persons representing the Old
Boss jumped up and down on them.
Most of the other stores, however, seem
to be trying to make the transition as quietly
as possible, so that the customer will resume
his rights without really realizing that the
whip is back in his hand.
this won't work with me. As soon as I
can buy a white shirt again, the clerk will
take out all the pins for me. With his toes,

Realizing the great need for University Graduates in all walks of
life, especially in running a business,
I have decided to work with your
firm for a short time as a stepping
stone to a better position with a
larger firm in the same line of
It is only natural that you should
feel that my four years of highly
specialized training in all phases of
business qualify me for a senior
executive position. Since, admittedly, this is the first work 1 have ever
done, I would be quite willing to
start at a nominal salary of say
$7,500 a year.
The many courses I have taken at
the University of British Columbia
have given me an intimate understanding of your business problems;
to mention bat a few:-
In Accounting 1, I did exceptionally well experiencing no difficultiei
whatever except in distinguishing
between an asset and a liability. In
marketing, I studied many businesses
just like yours. After taking the
Advertising course, I have two or
three of my own ideas besides those
in the book, which I would like to
try out on your firm.
In Industrial Management I learned

he was taking a $6,000 loss on each

Puzzles Assistant ■
Recently the Com 251 Assistant in
charge of recording the grades for
the "short" assignments given in
this course, was very much puzzled.
He had discovered two separate assignments, both bearing the same
name for the same problem but with
different handwriting.
Upon checking the second sheet
of one of the assignments he discovered much to his amazement that
it bore a different name to that
appearing on the outside sheet.
"Surely," thought the assistant,
"no Commerce man would stoop so
low as to copy another fellow's
work. In any case, he couldn't be
so 'brilliant' as to copy both the assignment and the owner's name!"
Hoping there was some explanation, he queried Professor Bill Van
Houten about it, who, somewhat annoyed that a member of his classes
would make such a "complete" job
of copying, confronted the culprit.
He too hoped that there would be
some reasonable explanation.
Alas and alack there was no such
explanation forthcoming! The guilty
party when called to account for the
discrepancy attempted three times
to clear himself but all he could do
was stammer and sputter.
CMA Important
To Comm Grads
As the Canadian Manufacturers'
Association offers employment opportunities for a large number of
Commerce graduates each year, it
was thought that a short explanation
of this organization would be of
interest to many Commerce students.
The Association originated in 1871,
at which time its membership consisted of only 100 members in the,
Toronto-Montreal vicinity. In 1899
it was reorganized, and in 1902 received a Dominion charter. At present it has a membership of 5,580 firms,
which represents 80% of the industrial production of firms eligible for
membership. As 83% of the membership consists of industries with
less than 100 employees, and as each
industry has but one vote, control of
the Association rests with the large
body of smaller industries in Canada.
The objects of the Association are,
to promote Canadian industries and
to further the interest of Canadian
manufacturers and exporters, and to
render such services and assistance
to members of the Association, and
to manufacturers and exporters generally, as is deemed advisable.
Any manufacturing business carried on in Canada that gives employment to not fewer than five employees
in its mechanical department is eligible for membership. The Association is maintained by membership
fees, which are determined by the
number of employees in each firm.
The Association contains the following departments to provide expert
advice and assistance to the membership: Tariff, Transportation, Industrial Relations, Trade Sections,
etcetra. Further services offered are
the publication of the Canadian Trade
Index, which is considered the authoritative directory of Canadian
manufacturing industry, circulars
giving latest changes in regulations,
and the monthly magazine "Industrial
Mr. R. V. Robinson, the Assistant
Manager of the B.C. Division, when
asked the C.M.A.'s attitude to Commerce training and graduates, replied
that the Association approved entirely of the courses offered, and, particularly, the steps taken by the
Commerce department to acquaint
students with the practical side of
manufacturing and production. Also,
he stated that the trend on the part
of the employers seemed to give
preference to men and women who
have had the advantage of the Commerce training.

I Am The Perfect Model
I am the perfect model of a pious Commerce Petagogue,

I've solved the pressing problem of the common Commisariat,
And how to pinch and plunder the 'varsity Proletariat;
I'm clad in purple vesture and draw a pauper's salary,
I'm unsurpassed in all the arte of playing to the gallery,
I clutch thespoils of office with unparalleled tenacity,
And don't propose to lose my job by ill-advised veracity.
In fact in things unpractical, Utopian and water-logged,
I am the perfect model of a pious Commerce   Petagogue.
I pacify my students with lectures, prayers and promises,
I castigate the critics and deride the doubting Thomases;
And when I'm not exhibiting the Department's vaunted vanity,
I demonstrate the workings of all commercial insanity.
I rise to heights of eloquence in these previse excursions,
I've proved the modern unions to be ancients Medes and Persians,
For we alone are competent to mold the modern mania,
And build the ultra-perfect state of Fountain-pen Sylvania.
In fact in things unpractical, Utopian and water-logged,
I am the perfect model of a pious Commerce Petagogue.
From our own University of B.C. in the West to Queen's
University in the East there has been a great trend to expansion of the various Commerce Departments as well as the numerous Commerce Undergraduate Societies across Canada.
Following are excepts taken from letters received from the
different Universities:
Entrance to Commerce Courses at
the U of A requires Senior Matric
and takes three years for a degree—
—however it is likely that a large
portion of the students will take a
fourth year of Honours in Business
Administration,, when that course
gets underway in a year or so. At
present, Accounting is Alberta's
"strong point".
Commerce students at U of A are
organized as a Commerce Club for
inter-faculty sports and social activities. Similar to UBC a Graduation
Banquet concludes their year.
Bachelor of Accountancy is an important degree at U of S with almost
fifty percent of the Commerce students going on to graduate as C.A.'s.
Recently the course has been broadened to offer a more diversified

At present the College has been
moved out to the old quarters of
No. 4 S.F.T.S. at the airport, as a
temporary measure due to overcrowding on the campus.
Commerce students at Winnipeg
are offered a diversified course. They
may take either a Pass degree in
four years or an Honour's degree in
five. If a student takes the latter
there are two options-a Regular
Course or a course in Actuarial Science. Actuarial Science includes four
years of Maths, four years of Actuarial Maths and two years of Finance.
Commerce students at U of M are
assessed f4.50 for Commerce activities, the majority of which went this
year for repairs to the Association's
Common Room.
Unique at Queen's is the Department of Industrial Management,
founded in 1938 in response to a
growing demand for a careful and
impartial study of employee - employer relations. It has proved a
popular and valuable course. Commerce at Queen's is organized as a
separate "School of Commerce and

At Toronto, Commerce is affiliated
with Arts, and because of its division
into colleges, (University, Victoria,
Trinity, and St. Michael's) with the
attendant friendly rivalry, no overall organization has been formed.
There is, however, a Commerce Club,
formed with the definite purpose of
overcoming this feeling.
Two interesting courses offered at
Toronto are, Economic and Political
Trends, and Financial Institutions
and International Relations. A fifth
year is also offered leading to a
Master of Commerce degree.
Comm. Department
Role Increasing
The Department of Commerce is assuming an increasingly important role
in the University of British Columbia.
From its modest beginnings in August
1929, when the first courses were offered leading to a Commerce degree,
it has now grown into one of the
largest department in the Faculty of
Arts and Science.
In 1929, five courses were added, to
the Department of Economics, Sociology end Political Science, allowing
students for the first time to graduate
with the degree of Bachelor of Commerce. J. Friend Day, Associate Professor of Economics assisted by Mir.
F. Field and Mr. J. Plommer as instructors in Accountancy, were appointed as lecturers in the field of
Commerce. The first graduate to receive his Bachelor of Commerce degree
was J. W. Home, in the spring of 1930.
In the following session, 18 students
were registered in the third year and
fourteen received their degrees. The
enrollment grew steadily until in 1933
in the third and fourth years there
were 51 students, and in 1934, 66 students.
With this increase in the number
of students came an increase in staff.
In 1934. R. H. Tupper and T.K. Collins
were appointed as lecturers in Commercial Law, By 1939, the Department of Economics consisted of two
professors, four associate professors,
two lecturers in accountancy and three
in Commercial Law.
At the time, due to the increasing
importance and popularity of commerce, a separate department was established vith E. H. Morrow as Por- t
fessor and Head. Assisting him were
Dr. A. W. Currie, Associate Professor and F. Field and R. H. Tupper
as lecturers in Accountancy and Law
respectively. During this term there
were 75 students in Commerce and 29
received their degrees.
To meet the demands for a more
extensive course, three new subjects
were added in 1941, namely Corporation Finance, Industrial Management, and Problems in Foreign Trade.
Since the establishment of the University Employment and Placement
Bureau, this department has worked
in close co-operation in matters of
employment of its students. While
actual job placement is now under
the direction of the Employment Bureau, the recommendation system
which the department employs is still
an invaluable aid to employers in
selecting their personnel.
This year is a landmark in the history of the department. In order to
meet the needs of the more complex
and specialized demands of the business world, the commerce course has
been extended from four to five years.
Both fourth and fifth year studies i
will each comprise 18 units of work
of which specialization takes a
major part.

4 Campus 'Army Camp'Look
Offset  By Landscaping
"The most beautiful campus in
Canada" is a phrase often heard at
UBC. But do we ever stop to think
of how we came to have this most
beautiful of campuses?
Behind the scenes, Professor Frank
E. Buck has been steadily helping to
beautify the campus. As landscape
architect, Professor Buck laid out the
plans for the tree-lined walks, flower
beds and lily ponds.
Since then he has presided over the
landscaping of the campus, completing
in detail the rockeries and plants
needed to offset the "army camp" look
of the converted huts.
His service has not been restricted
to this campus alone, however. Other
landscaping projects included those
of MacDonald College and McGill
University, and he was nine years at
Ottawa as first assistant to the Dominion Horticulturist.
Also active in many professional
and scientific societies, Professor Buck
was a founder and president of the
Canadian Society of Technical Agriculturists now the Agriculture Institute of Canada, Other presidential
positions included the Town Planning
Institute of Canada,  the North West
Association of Planning Officials and
of several Horticultural Societies.
The list of his activities is too numerous to include them all; it is enough
to say that he is deserving of the
honor the Agricultural Society wishes
to bestow upon him.
On "Apple Day" next Friday,
Agriculture students will campaign
for a fountain  in his honor.

have been started already, and many
more are slated to be built in the
near future.
Already on the way to completion
are the Physics building, the Library
wing, the Agriculture Pavilion, and
the power-house addition. The Physics building should be finished by
September 15, and ready for occupancy when Fall lectures comnrence.
If materials continue to arrive on
schedule, the Library wing's completion is expected by this time next
year. The Agriculture Pavilion, situated close to the cow barns, will be
completed and ready for occupancy
by the end of March Last details
on the power-house addition should
be finished  by  next  September
If it is finally decided to have a
medical faculty on the campus, medical buildings will have top priority
with the sum of $1,500,000 put towards the construction. If no medical faculty materializes, or if the
buildings for that department are
situated on the present site of the
Normal School, the priority will move
to the Applied Science building, to
be situated at the northwest corner
of the block on which the powerhouse is located,

Another trophy was added to the campus collection Saturday afternoon when Roy Haines' Thunderbirds edged out Van-
again the McKechnie cup, symbol of English Rugby supremacy
couver Lions by the relatively narrow margin of 8-3. Once
in western Canada, was brought home by victorious Blue and
Gold ruggermen.
A beautiful day crowned the efforts^ —	
of the Varsity stalwarts, who although
suffering a definitely off day, showed
that they were made of champion
stuff when on several occasions the
Lions threatened the Blue and Gold
Scoring opened at the 35 minute
mark when star of the day, Marshall Smith, crashed over the line
for 3 points. Don Nesbit made the
convert good, and the half-time score
was 5-0.
Roughness of the game was evident
by the number of limps developed
in the second half of the game.
Barney Curby developed a sore back
during the second half and Dave
Moon went on in his place, halt way
through the second half.
A heavy attack by Vancouver a
few moments later put the Leos in a
positon to score, and, as per usual,
a penalty kick was awarded the
Green and Gold and Bill Kinder
made the kick good for 3 points.
Final score came late in the game
when Johnny Wheeler passed to Nesbit who went over for the score. The
convert attempt by Barrie Morris
missed the posts.
The winning of the McKechnie
silverware leaves the Birds with one
more cup, the Rounsefel, to play for.
The lads will also play a series of
exhibition games with Victoria and
the University of California.
Grass hockey race for the Mainland
League tightened considerably over
the weekend, with both UBC and
Varsity teams downing their city
rivals by healthy margins. With but
one game remaining, UBC is perched
—rather precariously—on the top of the
loop standings, with a one-point lead.
On the rough North Shore turf,
UBC scuttled the Norse crew with a
5-1 triumph. Les Bullen sizzled four
hot goals past the bewildered North
Shore goalie after Tom Wilkinson
opened the scoring with a marker
in   the   first   fifteen   minutes   of   play.
On tho campus Varsity kept their
gap in the lawgue standings down to a
minimum by shaking the Vancouver
squad with'a 4-0 victory. Nick Her-
rick was instrumental in the Varsity
win. The speedy student goalie
smothered many a Vancouver shot in
the well-known nick.

Swimmers Bow
To Puget Sound
Puget Sound's swimming Loggers
again proved themselves a mite superior to the UBC Thunderbirds, as
they repeated their triumph in Tacoma
by whipping Doug Whittle's natators
at the Crystal Pool, Saturday night,
to the tune of a 40-27 margin.
Again it was the 200 yard freestyle
relay race that proved to be the deciding event. Had the Blue and Gold
aquamen managed to edge the fast
Tacomamen over the four length
route, they would have captured the
meet by one point, 34-33.
Jimmy Hawthorne was the class
of the pool as he swam the 50 yard
backstroke in a blistering 32.4 seconds, lead off the medley relay team,
and was the Point Grey institution's

Fred Oxenbury, one of Whittle's
most consistent performers, was second in the 100 yard breastroke.

consecutive victory without a loss
when the students easily defeated
Vancouver United by a 2-0 score at
the   Powell   street  grounds.
The UBC eleven, hosts to the New
Westminster   Legion,   were   less   fortunate   than   their   Varsity   brothers, j
going  down   by   a  5-0  count  on  the i
upper field of the campus.
Varsity's Gordy Shepherd broke the
first half deadlock in the second
cantu, dribbling up to outplay the
United goal-keeper handily. Jimmy
Gold added the second counter not
long afterward with his screen shot
from the penalty area.

lead in the league standings by overwhelming the North Shore Merchants
