THE      UBYSSEY      -      OPEN       HOUSE      EDITION
Friday, March 3, 1961
To the
alumni, students and friends
of the
University of British Columbia
On the occasion of this special Open House Edition
of the Ubyssey, the Government of the Province of British Columbia is pleased to extend greetings and best
wishes to the Alumni, Students and Friends of the University of British Columbia.
The continuing growth of this comparatively new
Province has been paralleled in recent years by a dramatic expansion in our University. To an increasing
degree the University has been able to extend its facilities and influence for the cultural, scientific and economic development of our physical and human resources.
Congratulations are extended to the students and
the Officers and Staff of the University for their many
accomplishments over the past year. It is hoped that our
University will continue to receive the widespread and
wholehearted support which it so fully deserves from
all of us.

TREASURE VAN rolls onto the campus, to add a cosmopolitan atmosphere to 1961 Open House.
The sale of these international items (we don't mean the girls) is at International House, Proceeds  will   aid  the  World   University  Service   Scholarship funds.
Treasure Van adds
International flavor
A Treasure Van loaded with
articles from all over the world
will roll into UBC, adding to
the international flavor on the
campus during the tri-annual
Open House.
The display will place on sale
to the public $30,000 worth of
exotic goods — mainly handicrafts—the majority of which
have never before been imported into Canada. Such diverse
items as hand-crafted camel saddles and scarab rings will be
available for  purchase.
Proceeds from the sale will
go to the World University
Service of Canada, to further
their international work, particularly in the under-developed
nations of Africa and Asia.
The   actual   Van,   which   has
been  travelling  across   Canada,

; The newspaper you are now reading is our contribution to
the 1961 Open House.
The Ubyssey staff worked many long hours to produce it.
Many persons and groups have put in a great deal of time
;to produce the displays and events you have seen or. will be
The Open House this year is the most comprehensive display in the history of the triennial event. It is our attempt to
show you your university and what it does.
If you enjoy your visit; and, if you go home knowing a little
bit more about your university, then the effort will have been
■worthwhile. We hope you do.
We  need
But, there is more to the university than the nice buildings
and fancy displays presented by the Open House Committee—
much more.
CCF-MLA George Hobbs said last week: We have Shack-
town B.C. on our campus." He was right.
While the nice buildings far outnumber the shacks, there
are still many hundreds of students who spend the majority of
their study time in 20-year-old army huts.
More than half of our resident students live in Fort and
Acadia Camps—made up of even older army huts.
And these accommodations are by no means free. Each
student pays his way. Board and room costs up to $500 a year.
What's more fewer than 3,000 of our 11,500 student population can be accommodated in any dormitories at all. Many out
of town students are forced to live in dingy basement rooms
in the Point Grey area—and City Council is threatening to evict
many of them from their garrets and cellars there.
Student donations have built one $150,000 dormitory. They
can't .afford to bujld more.
The university administration is hard pressed to keep up
with the need for classrooms. But it must be'remembered that
a university is nothing without students—and authorities frown
on students sleeping on park benches.
There is only one way to remedy this situation. This is for
every citizen of British Columbia to bring pressure to bear on
the provincial government to divert some of its m'oney to the
building of essential facilities at the University of B.C.
We urge you to do just this.
- Academic   freedom
Tfcere is more to a university than towering buildings —
more-than gleaming instruments — more than expensive
These are the bones and sinews of the university, but an
institution is not a university unless it has a soul.
And the soul of a university is academic freedom. Students
must be free to question, to discuss, to be irreverent — even
to act foolishly.
The real student doesn't come to the university to learn
■the square root of two, or to get a lifelong meal ticket in the
lefcni, of a degree. .  .       v .
., The real student is at the university to learn to think —
to learn what life is all about.
The howls of wounded moralists, who scream at every
word or reaction that offends their idea of right, are hobbles on
the feet of, the wandering student, who wishes to set foot in
every road to knowledge.
Academic freedom is tihe essential element in a university.
'.'. Ti you go home remembering only the towering buildings,
you will have seen the university, but you will not know it.

Those masterpieces of the pretentiously foolish that Lewis
Carroll foisted on another generation many many years ago
have served as inspirlsioh and guide to generations of college
This is just and good, for the radical youths who pour into
and spill out of universities find many things to parody and
satirize; living in the tradition of the arch-advocate of nonsense,
the paragon of irrelevance, does little if anything to dampen
their giddy fervor. When one considers that the oddest of odd
ducks usually are thought to congregate in our college newspaper offices and theatres, it seems a reasonable inference that
these lairs will harbor and give succor to the wildest yo-yos of
the crop. Yea, verily, they will be hptbeds of radicalism.    "'
Much as one hates to shatter illusions, especially when this
activity makes, one—as in this case—more than a little bit of an
iconoclast, I must report that in at least one newspaper office
(ours) there has been a marked decrease in radicalism. The
Ubyssey was once a focal point for this sort of thing—remember
the infamous 'Easter' pages in a: certain goon edition?—but it
is now, sad to say, as conservative an organization as Students'
Council, the Law Undergraduate Society or the University
And a wonderful indication of this is the fact that since I
began to write this column 1 have been asked, \>y fellow Pubsters no less, how I became clever enough to invent the title,
Being completely aghast at the ignorance of my contemporaries I soundly berated the lot of them.. This led me to observe
that if enough people are beaten severely about the head and
shoulders for asking stupid questions, the word gets out and
philistines stop disturbing creative artists at their work.
However it did not remove from their four persons the stigmata of not knowing that JABBERWOCKY is the title of a
poem. Since I have at last been persuaded that more people
have missed than have read it, I herewith present the first verse
and the last verse.
Twas brilling, and the slithey toves,
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogroves,
And the mome rath outbrage.
For those among you who appreciate the true worth of
such fine poetry (and anybody interested in what comes between these two stanzas), I refer you to the text entire, available in any copy of "Through the Looking Glass."
Whether or not the great unwashed read and are inspired
by the maunderings of dear C. L. Dobson, the college journalist does have some sort of responsibility to himself and his
public to bath his feverish grey cells in tales of Alice and other
figments of Carroll's imagination. As Punster Sports Editor
Spike Hunter says, you must come through the looking glass
and shatter all your illusions. Only then ean you claim for
yourself the title honorific of bona fide Pubster, after which
you are certified and duly empowered to go out and shatter
those 'of everybody else. •

Presidents Message
The Faculty, the students
and all those .associated with
the work that goes on day by
day at the University of
British Columbia are justifiably proud of our progress and
achievements. It is, therefore,
a particular pleasure for us all
to welcome "our guests who
have come on the occasion of
Open House to see something of
the facilities we offer and some
of the exciting developments
that are going on in the field
of higher education.
The University is, in a very
real sense, an image of the community which sustains and
supports it, and I have always
been encouraged by the interest responsible citizens have
taken in the growth and development of this University.
It now ranks as one of the
most important educational institutions in Canada: we have
a Faculty of able and dedicated
men and women, our graduates
continue to distinguish themselves for important posts in
society. The University will
continue to expand and  grow
to meet the educational needs
of the province and the nation,
and I think the pride we all
feel today will be shared by
our visitors as they tour the
many displays and exhibits.
I would like to assure our
guests that we will do everything we can to make their
visit to the University pleasant,
useful, and informative.

Student Council President
When the University was last
opened to the public, in 1958,
soma one hundred thousand
people, about the present population of Burnaby, visited Point
Grey in order to see for themselves what was being accomplished in the various establishments located there.
The student body of the day
took a considerable part in
the success of that Open House,
speaking in discussion groups,
operating various pieces of
scientific apparatus, acting as
tour conductors, and doing a
thousand things in order to
make   sure   that  the  public—
the people who pay for the university through their taxes—
could see for themselves that
the University does make a
most important contribution to
the over-all life of this province.
This year the student body
is again working as hard as it
has done in previous Vears in
order to make sure that Open
House is as successful as before.
There are more exhibitions of
the work of the various departments and faculties than have
previously been seen, and in
addition there are more displays   of   student   activities  in
the Field House. Amongst
these various items you wilt
find evidence that students
take a keen interest in the
political and social life of the
province, an interest that is
sparked in the University and
carried on by them into their
professional lives after they
have graduated.
As President of the Alma
Mater Society it is my privilege
to welcome you here on behalf
of the present student body o£
the University. We look forward with great pleasure to
your visit and hope that you
will go away again with an in
creased understanding of the
function ' of a University in
modern society. We feel that
there is no longer any room in
the world for a cloistered academic society, secure from the
criticisms of the people without. .Rather, we need and look
forward to criticism. Open
House, 1961, will give you an
opportunity to find out what
is happening at the University,
so that you may judge for
yourselves as  to its  worth.

Once every three years
everyone in the community has
an opportunity to see 'what
goes on in a university, when
members of the Faculty together with the students use
their ingenuity and skill to
demonstrate and display those
parts of the great body of
knowledge that are their particular fields of enquiry. It is
better than the Exhibition;
there is something for the
mind,   and entertainment, too.
As President of the Alumni
Association I invite you all to
see our own modest contributions to Open House. We will,
have a picture history of the
University on the wall of the
Brock Hall foyer, just outside
the Alumni office. In the Buchanan building we are showing
what the Association does, and
how it links the University and
the community. Be sure to try
our quiz on some of our outstanding graduates; see how
many of them you can recognize.
The University belongs to the
citizens of the province and a
majority of our members are
living and working in the province. We in the Alumni Association therefore view it as
our responsibility to relate the
University to the community
and the community to the University. We give regional scholarships annually to first-year
students from all parts of B.C.
We maintain branches in all
regions which sponsor regular
visits by faculty members .and
co-operate with the Extension
Department in meeting some of
the educational needs of each

On behalf of the Open House
■ Committee I would like to extend a very cordial welcome to
our visitors this weekend. The
purpose of this event is to
show the public the many
aspects of the University and
university life. These will be
demonstrated in a variety of
ways throughout the displays.
These will portray -what the
University does in some aspects
of research and will also illustrate how the University is
ant integral part  of   the com
munity. Some may explain
how a faculty or department
will expand, featuring its plans
for future development.
We are very anxious that the
public will take the opportunity to see its University in
action and become more familiar with the many aspects
which are seen only on this
At each display there will
be both students and faculty
to discuss the exhibit and answer any-  questions   about  the
work   in which they   are   engaged.
We have worked very hard
to  make   this   event  the best
possible with both information
-and a pleasant experience.
While the purpose of Open
House and the types of displays
have been mentioned, .one
other point should be made. It
is our hope that by seeing the
University as it is, the citizens
of British Columba will appreciate the vital role it plays
in the province and country today. We hope this encourages
the support which is so greatly
needed for higher education.
All we ask is that your
thoughts dwell on this for a
moment. ,       ^
On behalf of the committee
planning the event may I once
again welcome you to the University of British Columbia
and express the hope that

it has been for us to plan..

The School of Social Work's
Open House theme will be the
contribution of the school to the
community, e s p ecially in the
fields of education and research.
Today over 20 public.and private community social agencies
are linked to the school.
Through the field work, placement students are able to work
^towards the solution of problems
in terms of education and research.
The faculty has not refrained
from taking a stand in issues of
social policy, and has given
leadership to public opinion in
those areas which come within
its field.
Students from most provinces
in Canada as well as from the
United States, Europe and Asia
are attending the school this
year. There are 60 students in
the course leading to the Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) degree, 30 in the M.S.W. year.
For Open House, the School of
Social Work will feature a number of displays in their main office building (B9), as well as
regular showings of movies
about social work in M22. a
nearby lecture hall.

BROCK MURAL, above, is being used as the cenlrepiece for
Open House, 1961. Each square contains a symbol representing a campus faculty.
Open House built
around Brock mural
The Lionel Thomas mural,
consisting of symbols of all faculties at the university, has been
chosen to serve as a centerpiece
for  the   1961   Open "House.
The Open House committee
felt that the university is too
diversified for each faculty to be
able to fit its displays to a central theme. ,
"To integrate the whole operation of Open House, we decided
to build it around the Lionel
Thomas mural," saic' committee
member Bill Rodgers, Engineering 4.
Each faculty will display a
photo of its symbol near its display. All caifipus groups have
been assigned colors corresponding to the color of their symbol
on the mural.
The murrT itself hangs in the
Brock Hall courtyard. It was a
gift to the university by the
1958 graduating class.
Thr mural was executed by
Mr. Thomas, who is p noted Canadian artist and a member of
the staff of the Vr.r school of
architecture, and his wife, Patricia.

Victoria .University's $2 million expansion —
The goal ot Victoria: to build a Liberal Arts college "as fine as any in Canada,"
with a maximum enrollment of 5,000. Campus totals 175 acres, with playing
fields and a private golf course close by.
Student enrolment in Victoria University,
now about 1500, has shown an increase
of 60% in the past two years, and indicates a similar increase in the next
two years.
This beautiful new building is now ready
to accommodate hundreds more. It is
fully equipped to offer the finest educational facilities available and is geared
to modern educational needs.
Only ten minutes from city centre, it is
ideally located and carefully planned to
make university years both pleasurable and profitable.
To provide ample parking facilities for
students, large parking lots are conveniently located on the grounds.

World's most famous
Pub in Brock cellar
In the basement of Brock Hall,
sharing their dungeons with the
respective washrooms, operate
the voices of the campus—The
Ubyssey and  Radio  Society.
The Ubyssey, or Pub (for publications, not public house) publishes three issues of high-quality writing each week, while the
honey-toned Radsoc announcers
broadcast 6V2 hours a day for
five days a week.
The Pub's writers are a frenzied lot, with a strange affinity
for punching a typewriter, racing deadlines, and seeing their
own writing in print. Sometimes, during a calm, they attend lectures.
The editors are more frenzied,
and attend even fewer lectures.
Editor-in-chief Fred Fletcher
and Managing Editor Roger McAfee   reportedly   sleep  on  the
layout table, while the layout
crew bunks at the printers,
where 8,000 papers roll off each
press day.
The Ubyssey has an active
staff of about 35, most of vyhom
are news reporters. In the past,
the Ubyssey has had on its staff
such renowned journalists as
Pierre Berton, Eric Nicol, Lister
Sinclair and Jack Wasserman.
Many of the present staff are
candidates for  greatness.
The Ubyssey sponsors the
"Ubyssey Shield," an annual
award for the best high school
The Radio Society broadcasts
mainly music — jazz and semi-
classical — broker, by frequent
newscasts. The society has a
staff of 12 reporter-announcers,
15 announcers, 6 technicians,
and 6 producers.

it has a liason with other UN
agencies in matters affecting the
universities of tbe world; it is
co-sponsored by the Pax Po-
mana, World Student Christian
Federation, World Union of
Jewish Students, and the International Association of University Professors and Lecturers.
The UBC Committee of WUS,
known to initiates as WUSC,
directs its efforts in two main
channels. The first is a centrally
administered service, the International Program of Action.
IPA includes three' fields of
service: material aid to students,
in matters such as health, lodging, educational equipment, and
refugee   and   disaster   aid;   de
velopment of the facilities of
higher education through research and conferences; and international education via seminars, study programs and scholarships.
The second field of action for
WUSC includes those programs
which are run under local initiative and direction: the scholarships with Japan, Germany;
the drives for relief of disaster
areas, such as Morocco last year
and Chile this year; the drive to
alleviate some of the more pressing needs of higher education.
Such a need was that of text
books; the resulting Book Drive
was the rationale behind the
World Famous Bed Push.
Did you know that

New Ivory gained for
revamped AMS tower
A new form of Student government will be put into' effect
at UBC next year.
At an Extra#rdinary General
Meeting of the UBC Alma Mater
Society in January, students
voted overwhelmingly in favor
of revolutionary changes in the
AMS Constitution.
Thesef changes will materially affect the organization of the
Student Council, the executive
body of the AMS,
Students at UBC are given a
high degree of autonomy by the
Student Council, representing
all students on campus, organizes and regulates many of the
non-academ)c activities of the
University through the various
committees  it controls.
Each committee is appointed
to co-ordinate activities in a particular field; for example, one
committee is responsible for
government revision, one for
discipline, one for clubs, one for
men's athletics, and so on.
In the past, Student Council
was made up mainly of representatives of these committees,
who acted as liaison officers between the committees and the
However, over the last few
years there has been growing
dissatisfaction with this system.
It was felt that, adequate
though it was when first intro
duced, it had outlived its usefulness with the rapidly expanding enrollment at the University, and was no longer representative enough to be effective.
This year's Student Council,
drawing on the reports, ideas
and suggestions accumulated
over the past five years, evolved
a system which they feel will
solve   this  problem.
As all changes in the AMS
Constitution must be approved
by the students, an Extraordinary General IMeeting was called,
at which the proposed changes
were adopted almost unanimously by the students.
These changes involve replacing the committee representatives on Council with the Presidents of the sixteen Faculty
Undergraduate  Societies.
Each Undergraduate Society
is made ■ up of students enrolled
in a certain faculty.
These, plus a six-man Executive consisting of President, two
Vice-Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary, and Co-ordinat«r of Activities, together with the nonvoting Ubyssey Editor, will
make up the new 23-man Council next year.
Most experts in student government affairs agree that this
system will bring Council closer
to the students through their
Undergraduate Societies, and so
tend to eliminate the lack of interest which was rendering the
old  system  ineffective.

vreads the McGill Daily, from

how to play bridge, and how to
make amusing puns about engineers.

"We're especially going to try

He hopes that some way will
be found to help the student
adapt to the lecture system and
the relationship between professor and student.

More Canadian universities
are holding "open house" this

The College will have student

musical comedy.
Prize money for the competitions will be donated by industry.
In conjunction with the Ontario Veterinary College, and

UBC's Intercollegiate debating team dropped the McGoun
Cup this year after winning it
for the first time in 1959-60.
This year's topic "Resolved
that Canada should follow a neutral foreign policy" was defended at home by Derek Allen
and Michael Coleman. They lost
to the Univeisity of Alberta.
In Saskatoon, Lorenne Gordon
and David Anderson, arguing the
negative, defeated a University
of Saskatchewan team.
The local UBC debating union
sponsors debates and intercollegiate trips, as well as
arranging debates for the student body in general.
In the Fall term debating was
in the form of student forums
in which the audience asked
questions and spoke on the resolution.
The Legion Cup debates feature the campus clubs going
against the Greek letter societies.

H. H. Saunderson, president of
the University of Manitoba, in
a speech to the Alumni Association severely criticized the practice of censoring University
He felt that the editor of a
student paper must be given the
privilege and the accompanying
responsibility to make his own
decisions. "He must have the
right to criticize, and to make
his  own  mistakes,"  he  added.
In reference to a recent controversial issue, the "Dora"
story, Dr. Saunderson declared
that the editor has the right to
print stories "which may offend
his maiden aunt back home." He
must, however, be accountable
for his actions.
He added, "Students have the
right»to hear differing views.
Their role is not to learn a body
of information, but to search out
the truth."
Adam's sad;

David Adams, vthe man who
engineered UBC's first building,
the chemistry building, thinks
today's campus is a "disappointing hodge-podge ot architecture."

I sort of wonder too.
I was standing around minding my own business when the
Editor-in-Chief came over and said: "I want you to write something scintillating and full of wit in the Open House edition for
the fine people coming to visit our campus."
With a sneer and a ready wit I replied;   "Why?" '
"Because," he replied, "These people give us money, freshmen,

I was deeply impressed by the first and last items mentioned.

of Canadian University Press see him:
The Canadian Student defines political parties:
Socialism;- A man has two cows — he gives one  to his
Communism:  A man has two cows — he gives them to the
government which gives him part of the milk.

• Rising tuition fees "%&:"&
• Rising  book  costs:  Where  can  we  get the   financial   state

• Fun:  Bed-pushing  is  the   rage  across  Canada.   The first
record of 42 miles set by intellectual Stunt Committee of the University of B.C. has been surpassed by
McMaster University, 100 miles, Acadia University,
301 miles, Dalhousie University, 345 miles. At least
10 universities have participated. Queen's is now

Dean McCreary:
UBC needs teaching' hospital
Dean of Faculty of Medicine
It is only a little over 10 years
ago that the first medical students began their training at
this University. Much has been
accomplished in that comparatively brief period. Six classes
have graduated. Some of
these physicians are still in graduate training, but many are
already in practice both as family physicians and in the various
•specialties; others are engaged
in research and a significant
number have returned to this
University as members of the
Before the medical school was
established, distinguished medical consultants brought here to
giye advice were unanimous in
their opinion that if we were to
develop into a good medical
school we must have adequate
facilities for. teaching and research in the preclinical subjects; and that a teaching hospital must be built on the campus in close co-ordination with
the preclinical departments.
-r        V        -P
Now, 10 years later, we are
finally beginning to see the first
of these aims come into being.
Preclinical teaching and research have, -until now, been
carried out in cramped, inadequate quarters in temporary
buildings. Three "buildings are
now under construction which
will be completed in the summer of this year.
These will house teaching and
research laboratories for anatomy, biqchemistry, physiology
and pharmacology and research
areas for cancer, pathology and
Howeyer, insufficient funds'
were available for classrooms,
biomedical library, administration, etc. These activities will
still have to be carried on in
temporary quarters. This, then,
is only the beginning of the solution to our problems. It is a
real   step forward  but only  a
part of the development which
must take place.
For over 2 years now, the
heads of the clinical departments have been actively planning and working toward the
development of a University
Hospital. Through .the generosity and interest of the Rockefeller Foundation, funds have
been provided to allow visits to
all the teaching hospitals which
have been built in the United
States and Canada since World
War II as well as consultations
with authorities in Great Britain. '       »
The concept that has emerged
is much more than just another
service hospital to care for the
sick and injured. It is, in fact,
a laboratory of human biology
which will give exemplary patient care but, in addition, will
serve many other important
functions. It will allow for coordination  of teaching  and  re-

search between the pre-clinical
and clinical areas. The-'various
members of the 'Health Team'
will be able to have co-ordinated
'teaching; medical students, nurses, dental students when that
faculty is established, rehabilitation personnel, psychologists,
social workers and the host of
others who have a part to play
in the provision of health care.
Health care in the past generation has become exceedingly
complex and a team approach
to training is required.
In comparison with other
large community hospitals, the
University Hospital will not
have a huge number of beds.
As visualized, it will offer a
complete service in all fields;"
medicine, surgery, obstetrics
and pediatrics with approximately 310 beds for the care
of these patients. In addition,
there will be about 60 beds for
the treatment of psychiatric
cases. This is in conformity
with the newer thinking in the
care of mental illness, the establishment of psychiatric units in
conjunction with hospitals to
their mutual benefit,
v     v     -t*
There will also be a 40-bed
unit for the care of patients undergoing _ rehabilitation. This
will provide the teaching areas
for a School of Rehabilitation
which is so essential if trained
personnel are to be provided to
implement the program of chronic disease care announced by
the government last year.
The building of the University Hospital will quite obviously cost a lot of money and take
quite a period of time. The
stage that has now been reached is that the Provincial Government is being asked for its
approval in principle.
From the time of approval in
principle, it is estimated that a
minimum of 5 years will elapse
before the hospital will be in

Since its founding, 1296 men and women have graduated
from the UBC Faculty of Agriculture, Canada's youngest agriculture faculty.
1 Students of agriculture are
' trained to serve the agricultural
industry at both the theoretical
and practical levels and to accept responsibility and-leadership in their community. The
agriculturist's prime concern,
that of ensuring an adequate
supply of food, marks him as
one of the most vital members
of the community.
The Faculty of Agriculture at
UBC attempts to instill into its
students an understanding of the
fundamentals of science. The
revolution changing agriculture
from an art to a science, can best
be dealt with by persons having
a broad scientific background
and capable of using it to solve
specific problems.
The Faculty of Agriculture is
made up of 165 undergraduate
students, 30 graduate students,
and 30 faculty members. Although the undergraduate students enter the four year program, only a few take the five
year honours program. The Faculty is divided into the following general fields of study: agriculture economics, agriculture
mechanics, poultry science, plant
science, animal science, soil science, and dairying. Students desiring to study veterinary medicine may take their first two
years at UBC before continuing
with their studies at Ontario
Veterinary School.
Depending on several factors,
agriculture students have between 25 and 35 hours of lectures and labs per week. In the
first two years a student takes
a general course in order to obtain  a  solid  grounding  in  the
sciences. At the beginning of the
third year the student specializes in the department of his
In addition to its educational
role the Faculty of Agriculture
conducts research in all major
fields of study. To mention a few
of the research projects, the Department of Agricultural Economics conducts a fajm management program in B.C., Agri-
culture^ Mechanics is working on
potato and carrot storage, the
Soil Science Department has
collaborated in the soil survey
of this province, Plant Science
has assisted in construction of
spray and chemical control
charts, Animal Science is studying the utilization of pelleted
screenings, Poultry Science is investigating egg quality at the
retail level and Dairying has
carried out studies on the Res-
azurin test of milk.
Although the faculty has considerable facilities, it suffers
from physical separation. At the
present, offices, lecture rooms,
laboratories are situated in numerous buildings spread over a
large area. The result is often
a feeling of isolation of one department from another.
Agriculture undergraduates
belong to the Agriculture Undergraduate Society, an organization primarily concerned with
the student government and social activities of the "Aggies!".
Members of the undergraduate
society belong to the junior
branch of the Agriculture Institute of Canada, the organization
of professional agriculturists.

With the new operation in
mind the graduate students organized the Graduate Student
Association last year.
During its first year the students presented a brief to the
provincial government asking
for participation in the scholarship fund.
This coming year will be the
first the faculty will have direct
representation on the AMS; the
GSA president will be a member
of the Student Council.
The purpose of the organiza
tion is to promote the welfare
of the graduate -students and the
university and "to promote and
serve the social, intellectual,
cultural and recreational activities  of graduate students."
.Last year the association spon.
sored two very successful social
functions, a semi-formal cabaret
dance and an evening cruise to
Balaclava Park.
At present the association is
discussing with the AMS the
possibility of lowering the individual graduate student's AMS
fee in order that some of the
money be diverted to support
the new centre.

THE       UBYSSEY      -      OPEN       HOUSE      EDITION
Friday, March 3, 1961
Forestry includes
dozens of Lagers
i       Tim-m-b-b-ber!
This is the rallying cry that echoes regularly in B.C. forests,
The workers in the industry,
Forestry students here at UBC,
and all British Columbia citizens
have a vital interest in our forests.
*   -    ••* ■ 2
Our forests are a public resource. Since every one of us
shares in the benefits and returns of this resource, it is logical that we should also share in
the task of ensuring the perpetuity of this same resource.
Of paramount importance Is
the fact that British Columbia's
harvest of forest products directly and indirectly supports
about one-half of the population
of the province. This item alone
should be sobering enough to
stop "Tom Tourist" from flipping his cigarette butt out of his
car window. Often, however, it
is not.
The answer, plainly, is that
there is a definite need for even
greater public awareness of our
p r i ma r y resource. When you
visit Open House, 1961, we'll try
to show you just a little bit more
than what you already know
about your forests.
The Faculty of Forestry operates on an option basis much the
same as many of the other faculties on campus. Under this system, the student, after his successful completion of the first
year in the faculty, is required
to select a field of forestry '
which holds his major interest.
Of the seven of these options,
forest management, forest harvesting, and business administration   are   the   most   popular.
Now,    leaving   the   academic
side of the picture, what about
our social  activities?  Each fall,
the   social   calendar   kicks   off
with a rather  boisterous smash
at     the     University     Research'
Forest   near   Haney.   The   two f
main purposes of this event are  I
to welcome the new students in  i
the  faculty  and  to   support  fi-  j
nancially   the   local   breweries.  !
Next item—Open House, 1961.. j
Our faculty is busy right now
preparing displays. We will show
you, in detail, how a forest product, which I am sure all of you
use every day of your lives—
paper — is manufactured. You
are using it right now as you
read this article.
Many more displays, too numerous to describe here in detail,
will be set up.
We will show you how plywood is manufactured, how your
forests are harvested, how British Columbia's forest protection
organization functions, how
your forests are inventoried, and
the role that aerial photography
plays in the practice of forestry.
Pioneers laboratory
Bacteriology feature
Since the beginning of. man's
understanding of bacteria, his
comprehension of the world
around him has been revolutionized.
A knowledge of all the fundamental facts and principles governing the structural development and physiological requir-
ments and capabilities of the bacteria themselves is essential to
the betterment of man's life
among the microbes. It is toward this end that researchers,
teachers and students are wdrk-
Therefore, to enable the public to better understand the importance and purpose of bacteriology, visitors will be conducted
on tours of the laboratories by
students who will explain the
various exhibits.
Included in the demonstrations
will be a visit to the re-built
laboratory of a pioneer of bacteriology who used the earliest
methods of cultivating, separating and identifying bacteria. It
will be possible to see the original methods of staining cells
for viewing under the microscope.
Modern day bacteriology will
-—be depicted by displays dealing
with many aspects of public
health, Haematology, Immunology, Virology, Physiology, and
Mycology. The characteristics of
Tuberculosis and Diphtheria will
be described by means Of microscopic slides of the bacteria, X-
Ray, and pictures demonstrating
the particular reactions of the
body to each disease. In some
cases, actual specimens will ac
company the displays. Particular
attention will be paid to the
method of transmission, conditions of contact and clinical
characteristics of diseases.
Information on water-borne
diseases such as Typhoid and
Cholera and special features of
venereal diseases will be described.
Improper methods of preserving food which may lead to the
transportation of diseases such
as staphylococcus poisoning and
Botulism will be discussed.
An informative display will
explain the way in which a vaccine is made and the principles
behind its use in immunization
against communicable diseases.
The visitor will, also become
more acquainted with the methods of typing and classifying
blood. Particular features of the
fungi and viruses which affect
man will al<jo be discussed.
A glimpse into the future possibility of "germ-free" life will
be afforded by an exhibit using
laboratory animals. The visitor
will see new machines designed
to facilitate a better understanding of bacteria and their habits.

IH is center for
foreign students
March fourth marks the official second birthday ef
International House at U.B.C.
The 'House' in its present form, was opened on this day
in 1959. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt performed the ceremony, opening the pleasant and gracious 'House' for use by students from
all over the world.
As about ten percent of UBC's
population is from outside Canada, the "House" has been well-
used and well-appreciated since
that time.
Students themselves had
worked for the buildinj of such
a centre since 1949 when the
International House CJub was
organized on campus.
UBC's International House is
far fro/n being the only one of
its kind. It has affiliations with
similar organizations in Paris,
New York, and other cities
throughout the world. It is, however, the only International'
House  so far in  Canada.
The idea of the International
Houses has existed since 1910,
when a compassionate New
York man noticed the loneliness
of foreign students and invited
a number of them to share the
friendship of American students.
The International House
Association in Vancouver has
another ambitious plan for the
UBC centre. Residences will be
added within a few years which
will house both Canadian and
foreign University students and
which will make "IH" a real
ho*      for its members.
International House serves its
members in practical as well as
idealistic ways. As an example
during' the past term, Sunday-
evening dancing classes helped
foreign students to adjust themselves to the social pattern oi
their Canadian classmates.
IH also operates a Credit
Union, unique in that it makes
loan money available to overseas students whose only
acquaintances here are fellow
students, landlords and professors, who may not^ act as
guarantors for loans from other
student funds.
During the University term
IH is used by students as a pleasant and convenient base for
many activities. Facilities are
available for lounging, recreation,   discussion,   and   studying.
During Open House IH
features include tbe Treasure
Van of the World University
Service of Canada, entertainment by the Inter-Residence
Council and displays of photographs an5 objects of interest
from the homelands of 'House*
members. International House at
UBC is also marking its second

The arts, dahh'rtg
From Soup to The Ubyssey
"O' we're off to see the
Wild Wept show. The elephant and the kangaroo . . ."
Irreverently, perhaps, but
not irrelevantly, I remember
these lines from an old and
bawdy song whenever I am
asked to consider and report
upon the whole circus of campus activities in the arts.
The elephant is a double
symbol, for he represents not
only the huge, imperturbable
mass of the students, which,
where these activities are co-
cerned, oft^n couldn't care
less; he also stands for the
forces of reaction within the
arts, — professors protecting
sinecures, producers professing
outworn doctrines, presidents
pursuing picayune policies —
which squat amid decaying
vegetation, trunk in trunk,
thick in the hide and the head.
If you will overlopk the misleading Australian aspect of
the kangaroo, you may, as I do,
see in him a useful symbol for
the student, talented or not,
who is determined to gain satisfaction from artistic endeavour on campus.
Satisfaction may be called
the margin of success over frustration; and this student will
meet with so much frustration
that h,e will have to bop from
theatre to musical society, from
mussoc to camera club, to
Ubyssey, to Raven, to Dance
club, to find some possible degree   of ' satisfaction.
Frustration, where it is not
assured by the Establishment,
will arise because, due to the
slim margin of A.M.S. funds
left after the football team
has been paid for, in no one

These are they who choose one

The Players' Club ef UBC is
an ancient and honourable organization. It has produced at
least   one   play   a   year   ever
since 1915. Since its last policy
change, it has put on a Fall
Play and a Spring Play, each
year; the latter the club takes
on a three week tour of thp
province in May.
The Fall Play of 1960, Jean-
Paul Sartre's THE FLIES, was
better than most productions
" of recent years. It had extremely competent actors in the
roler of Aegistheus, Zeus, and
Orestes, And it must be remembered, of course, that if
the rest of the cast were not of
the standard of Arthur Mar-
quet, John Hooper and David
Allen, most of them had never
been on a stage other than a
high school stage before; they
may be the competent actors
of future winters.
The club's Spring play of
1961 is to be DREAM GIRL.

just begun, and the production
dates are March 16, 17, and 18.
For those students who can
not or don't wish to act, yet
who cannot stay away from the
theatre, this club gives experience of scenery-building or at
shifting; and will teach you a
little about lighting. In its
Green Room, bridge and metaphysics are also taught.
The Theatre Department,
while not a s t u d e nt club,
should be mentioned, for, in
its January production, it offers further opportunity to aspirant-actors. This year it gave
OF SETZUAN; once again, a
production of a higher standard than others of recent years.
A mixed bag of Players' Club
members, Theatre students,
and outsiders made up the cast.
The outsider who springs instantly to mind is Doris Chil-
cott, who played the double
lead of Shen-Te and Shui Ta;
but Miss Chilcott is not wholly
non-U, for she learned her basics in the Players' Club a few
years ago. Arthur Marguet
(again), Pam Hawthorn, and
Ken Kramer, were club members who performed well; Dr.
Soule, Moyra Mulholland, Alex
Annan, and John Gilliland
were among the better Theatre department  actors.
A word about the Theatre
Department: It provides eleven undergraduate credit courses, covering many practical
and theoretical aspects of the
theatre, and works hand-in-
hand with the extension department's Summer School. It is
possible to take either a major
or an honours program within
its three walls; and, in a year
or two, post-graduate work
will also be possible.
Mussoc yields one show per
annum: this year, it was DAMN
YANKEES.   If   you   can't   act,
but do like to be on the stage,
and can  either sing  or dance,
there may be a place  for you
in Mussoc. If you can both act
and  sing,  you're   in.

provides a salutary quote for
those undergraduates at this
moment hovering on the brink
of creation. I say salutary, because it is old hat that discouragement only spurs on the
true spirit. Here's what Matthews says: "Writers, by, and

If I could move —

Now an  English professor  at
UBC,    Dr.    Earle   Birney  must
smile a little as he recalls these
lines.    They   are  found in   his
beautiful    narrative    poem —
"David",  —  which  describes   a

"Now Is Time" (1945) won
Birney the Governor General's
Award for a second time.
Born in Calgary in 1904, Dr.
Birney took some of his schooling in Banff, and graduated
from UBC with his B.A. in 1926,
with first class honors in English.
A year later he received his
M.A. at Toronto, and in 1936
he received his Ph.D.

Before becoming a professor
at UBC (in 1946), Earle Birney
had travelled to London on a
Fellowship (where he studied
the irony of Chaucer); . to California on another fellowship;
and to the universities of Utah
and Toronto as a lecturer.
Dr. Birney's "Trial of a City"
was published in 1952. This, his
only poetic drama to date, is a
rather mordant criticism of modern urban society,
v   -f*   ^p
Dr. Birney's latest work,
"Down the^Long Table," published in 1955, is a semi-autobiographical novel that he worked
on while in France in 1953.
In this same year Dr. Birney
added another award to his already significant collection: the
Lome Pierce Gold Medal from
.the Royal Society in Canada. .

I was fortunate in being able
to break in on Dr. Birney's tight
schedule recently and ask him it
few questions.
In his office in the Buchanan
building he told me that the
number of students interested in
writing here seems to compare
favorably with that of other
Canadian universities. There
are some students on the campus who impress Dr. Birney as
having promise of becoming
good writers.
Dr. Birney told me he was
first inspired to write during the
war years.
Although he has ideas for
more novels, Dr. Birney bai

All debators favor
female engineers
As a public seryice we would
like to show that UBC students
debate topics other than chastHy.
Following is part of a serious
debate on the resolution "More
Women Should Go into Engineering and More Men Should Go
into Home  Economics."
We shall take a typical shy, ingenious, young freshman arriving on our large sophisticated
campus and see what help Home
Economics can give him.
In his first year he can  take

always discussing clothes.
The third year man is in luck.
Home Economics offers a course
called Experimental Design 306.
This would be invaluable to
the Junior when discussing plans
for later in the ev2ning with his
girlfriend. It would also be
handy for those running in the
Alma Mater Society elections.
Now to the fortunate senior
man preparing to meet the outside world. For him Home Economics offers Communications
410. Backed by the knowledge
he has obtained from this course,
our man, who started as a shy
freshman, can now express himself to his future employers,
cering Faculty can give them the
ledge to communicate with his
father asking for another loan.
Before passing on to the next
part of my argument I would
like to mention the advantage of
this plan for the women now
taking  Home Economics.
The women who have attended this university for a year will
now realize that they are in need
of help. Fortunately the Engin-
erring Faculty can give them the
help they need.
Upon investigation they will
find they can take courses like
Physical Chemistry 255. This
will give them information on

But the song ends.

even now, bounding from the

In North America, the football referee is usually the most
picked-upon. This official-looking "breed, decked out in baseball
cap, black-and-white striped shirt, white pants, and the inevitable
penalty flag in their hip pocket, seem strangely to become hypochondriacs when they visit Vancouver.
They break out with colds and all too often that little "hanky'-''
is in constant use. Indeed, one referee, we hear, has been approached
to do a commercial for. Kleenex.
This   little   piece   of  cloth,  thrown   in  the   right  (i.e.,   wrongjt
places, forces coaches, players, and fans into an uproar. Such incidents of hanky-panky on the part of officials can result in a permanent blur on  the  name   of  the  head   referee—"Dojack"   is   now. a
household word in B.C. .
The strange thing is, when a referee makes a decision, exactly
half the players and fans are jeering, and the other half cheering,
And, as quickly as you could drop a hanky, the cheerers become
jeerers, and vice-versa   (and the more vice, the versa).
A good example of this was the Saskatchewan scout at the
Homecoming football game. Angry at a Husky penalty, he hurled
verbal threats at the man in black and white.
Men Of Good Jeer
No sooner had his tongue stopped wagging when the Birds
were assessed a roughing penalty. "Whoopee! Attaboy, ref.! Come
on, give 'em a talking penalty!" Even B.C. weather doesn't change
that fast.
And among the most notorious ref-haters are coaches. UB€
football coach Frank Gnup, not notorious for sensational quotes,
lets himself go when it comes to referees.
The usually mild-mannered Gnup was steaming at the Homecoming game. During the action, Gnup gestured angrily in the
direction of the suspected Saskatchewan conspirators, uttering
utterances. (This is rather difficult if you happen to have a cigar
in your mouth at the time).
"Hey, Gnup!" yelled a fan. "Tell the bdys if they're gonna
get a penalty, to kill the other guys."
j.'his is what the man in the striped shirt is up against—and
it's a wonder some of them last as long as they do. And all at the
