Holm and Manson eliminated,
Trevino scooped  the  final  bal
lots to take the co-ordinator's
job,   1192  to Butterfield's  749.
Maureen McNeil became Second Member-at-Large on a majority vote on the second count.
On count one, Miss McNeil took
1151 votes to George Morfit's
588, Ralph Brown's 446, and
Rod Dobell's 398. The final count
read McNeil, 1305: Morfit, 674;
and   Brown   580.
Third Year Forestry student

1182, to Huberman's 569, Roten-
berg's 453, and Govan's 425.
He took the election on the second round, 1415 to Huberman's
670 and Rotenberg's 520.
On the Vice-Presidential elections, McKenzie swept seven of
the nine polls, earning his biggest lead in his home constituency, 338 votes to MacDonald's
53 and Leckie's 21.
MacDonald won the ballots at
Brock Hall, 241 to McKenzie's
181, and at Vancouver General
Hospital, 18 to 11.
Trevino topped the polls at the

School   of   Commerce
The degree of Bachelor of Commerce was first awarded
to a single student by the University of British Columbia in
1930. The first graduating class appeared in 1931. In the intervening 2$ years 1,888 men and women have qualified for the
"Commerce" courses were first given in the Department
of Economics with Mr. J. Friend, Mr. Frederick Field, and a
few others as professors. Initially, courses recognized as
"Commerce" courses were such subjects as accounting, foreign
trade, statistics, labour relations and so forth.
In 1939 Professor Ellis Morrow, then of the University of
Western Ontario, was invited by President Klinck to establish
a separate department and he took up his appointment in the
autumn of that year. Soon after his arrival Canada become
involved in,the Second World War and young men and women
left the campus or failed to come to it while they were engaged
in this world struggle. For this reason, the number of graduates
remained small until the end of the war. From 1945 onwards
the position changed rapidly and radically, and very large
numbers of veterans registered for the degree of Bachelor
of Commerce. They were allowed to accelerate their program
by full attendance throughout the year, and the numbers
graduating from 1946 to 1950 were as follows:
1946 - 110
In 1950, on the retirement of Professor Morrow, the writer
of this guest editorial was invited to join the Faculty and to
reorganize the department into a school. The changes effected
have not been merely nominal. The process of specialization
in business had spread throughout the whole management
structure and business was now recruiting men and women for
one of these specialties—accounting, finance, selling, advertising,
market research, production planning, transportation, hospital
The faculty and council of the school were forced, therefore, very early in the history of the school, to decide how
far they should or would recognize this business demand and
create specialist curricula, and how far they would insist on
the continued use of traditional subject matter. A number of
principles gradually became accepted. Specialist programs
would be offered, but they must be based on a "core" of
courses of proven intellectual worth. Commerce students were
primarily university men who should know and value their
"common intellectual heritage."
The study of social sciences, in particular, should be obligatory in the early stages and allowed as electives wherever
possible. Familiarity with statistical procedures, with accounting,, commercial law, personnel and industrial relations would
be required of all students. Once these needs were assured,
we would follow the Harvard tradition and provide a range
of courses of increasing complexity in which students would
"concentrate in depth" in one area of study. The number of
electives would be reduced in the upper years. It would be
the responsibility of the.faculty rather than the students to
determine which courses met these requirements. Out of these
considerations emerged the now well-known "options" pattern.
This pattern has now been in operation for five years. It
is the belief of the Faculty and Council that these principles
are substantially correct. There is frequent transfer from
option to option in the lower years of the program, but the
great majority of the students establish an "interest by their
third year and go out into the industrial world in the area
of ther option. The demand for Commerce students has increased more rapidly than the supply and, as Dr. George Morrison has stated in his recent survey, "over the past few years
the demand for graduates in Commerce has been second onlty
to that for engineers. This trend will probably continue. The
demand comes from all sectors of business and industry."
The School of Commerce in this universty is now the
largest in Canada and is registering about nine per cent each
year of the increasing student body.

D. D. D. McGee, derisively
referred to as 3D McGee by
his fellow Com. 151'ers sat
in class, peering myopically
through his tortoise - shell
rims. But the writing on the
wall went unseen by poor 3D.
The well-meaning dronings of
the podium were supplanted
in his fevered mind;! no debits, no credits vied for his
vagrant attentions. For, far
in the back of his mind, came
softly,   but   incessantly   the
"Tuh - pucka-tuh-pucka-tuh-

ticket-tape machines, lulling
him . . •
He pushed back in his upholstered leather office chair,
and savouring for a moment
the fine aroma of the good cigar, sneered contemputously
at the group of anxious faces
arrayed before him.
"All right, gentlemen," he
heard himself say, noting with
satisfaction the derisive authority mixed with haughty disdain that his tone indicated,
"I'll help you."
Immediately, the faces leapt
into action, all talking at once,
all smiling, and all (he noted
with even more contempt)
greatly relieved.
"The Market is saved!"
"I'll wire New York immediately!"
"The President is on the
phone. What shall I tell him?"
"Don't be an ass, Smedley.
Tell him that 3D McGee has
put the World Economy back
on its feet."
And Vanderfeller, on his
knees before him, tears welling in his soggy old eyes:
'Mr. McGee, you sir, deserve
more credit than . . , ."
Credits ! ! !
The classroom swam back
into view, slightly distorted
but . . . Ah, now he saw why.
Lifting the ton of Practice Set
off his head, he settled once
more back into his chair.

nomenclature by eternal credits to the reserve, we . . ."

had the true student's instinct
and could sense, both from
the pretenlious attitude of the
professor, and the rattle of
papers thoroughout the room
that something important had
been said. Accordingly, he, deciding it prudent to write it
down, picked up his . . .
. . . his pen. His pen would
be the revelation of the business world, his pen would
change the whole face of society, why, his pen was the
greatest gift to mankind since
breathing! It had meant years
of devoted study and toil. But
at hist he had done it; invented a pen that would not only
compose flawless prose, but
would add, multiply, divide
and subtract — even underline
in the right places. It was a
saving grace to all Comerce
students, to say nothing of the

Today you university Commerce students stand on tht
threshhold of a new dawn.
Remember, it's later than you think and you're not
getting any younger. Take stock of yourself and avoid being
a square peg in a round hole.
Business is rosy but we are living in strenuous times.
Why not hitch your wagon to a star and go west young man

Don't be afraid to burn your bridges behind you, stick
your neck out and get your teeth into the job even though
you have your tongue in your cheek.
If the big brass is a tyrant with a chain around your
neck, you can either throw down the gauntlet or handle him
with kid gloves. Be ever on the alert because a.chain is only
as strong as its weakest link.
So keep your chin up and your eye on the ball and swing

If they sell you down the river you don't have to sink
like a rock. Swim with the stream. Don't be a fish out of
water, be a big frog in a small puddle.
If you have an itchy palm plunge it into the old pork
barrel and pull out some filthy lucre but be careful that you
aren't driven to the wall in a high-powered car.
Should you drink like a fish keep it in your mind's ey«
that there's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip. Why not
take the bit between your teeth instead. Climb to the top of
the ladder and get in on the ground floor.
Sometimes, if you let the grass grow under your feet,
become a thorn in the side of your employer or fail to cut the
mustard you will get three strikes on you and have to eat
humble pie.
When this happens you'll have to pull in your horns,
adjust your rose-colored glasses, pocket your pride in the
suit cut to fit your cloth and touch the heart-strings of your
employer. If you do you might get his John Hancock on •
promise to give you some more of the root of all evil.
Here's a word to the wise—develop a memory like an
elephant so it won't slip your mind that it's the early bird
that catches the worm; especially if he has done sufficient
spade work. But watch out for butterflies in your stomach.
There's a world of opportunity before you—you can
beat ploughshares into swords. Knit your brows. Bake an
apple pie order. Hit the nail on the head. Have an ace up your
sleeve. Work around the clock. Spread the gospel. Clear the
decks. Die in Harness. Blow your own horn or beat the drum.
Scale the next range.
Find new fields to conquer. Ride the gravy train. Be on
Easy Street. Keep the pot boiling. Trumpet the news. Throw
in the towel. Sharpen pencils. Pay lip service. Split hairs or
pull chestnuts out of the fire.
If you feel that you're in the doldrums and everything
looks black, don't give up the ship or get caught up the creek
without a paddle, keep plugging along. It's always darkest
before the dawn. It never rains but it pours; but it always
makes distant fields greener.
If you're reduced to a skeleton while working on a shoestring, try answering the $64,000 question and maybe Lady
Luck will smile on you with a mulligan stew.

Management today, has been
concentrating on eliminating the
inefficiencies 1 n production.
While this brings greater savings of costs in production, practically all goods must be exchanged and this leads to a
greater marketing job.
Hence, the increasing compexi-
ty of the marketing function has
produced a need for men trained
to accept responsibility for the
many tasks that must be performed in the distribution of
goods and servies.
The Marketing option of the
School of Commerce is designed
to provide the students with a
sound grounding in business
practices and a specialized training in the field of marketing.
Since marketing makes up more
than half of the cost of goods,
it would seem that it deserves
as much study and attention as
the production of goods.
As consumers we rely on the
marketing system to bring us
goods which we need from day
to day. But we should know
something about the marketing
system just as we should understand the entire economic system of which we are a part.
It is the design of the marketing department to make the student or the prospective businessman understand the marketing system so he may market \
his goods economically and
strive to make the system oper- i
ate more efficiently. The mar-
keting process leads to oppor- J
tunities in sales in a wide variety of industries, in advertis-1
ing, retailing, wholesaling, mar-1
ket research, and foreign trade.

Engineers, take note! Your

Commerce   Teams
Make Good In 'Murals
The School of Commerce is having an active year in the
intramurals. The volleyball team made a good showing when
it ended near the top of its section in the regular league play,
the soccer squad gave their competitors a good fight, even
though it didn't win many games. Bob Lee gave some of the
Table Tennis racket wielders a scare with his good playing.
Neil Dalgliesh represented the school in badminton.
The thing that is obvious is the competitive playing in
Commerce is the desre of the fellows to go out and have a
lot of fun in good, clean athletic competition. A typical example
of this is the spirit of the two basketball teams that are now
playing heads up ball.
Both teams should get into the elimination rounds that
are comng up soon. The final sports team that is entered in the
intramurals is the touch football seven.
