of ih&
University of British Columbia
At the beginning of crnew decade, the Government of
this Province as the representative of its citizens is proud
to extend to the graduates of British Columbia's University congratulations on having successfully completed a
major stage in their education. In a world where higher"
academic and professional learning has come to be a
necessity for o high proportion of the population, it is
gratifying to know that such a substantial addition is
being made to the ranks of the university trained.
In the years that lie ahead both public and private
services will be recruiutng .personnel from those who
graduate today. The quality of their education, their
ability to analyze and solve problems will be reflected
in the efficiency of those services.
Therefore to  the congratulations on a task well
done, your Government adds its best wishes for the future'
success of the University and its. graduates.

Degrees Conferred
On Outstanding Men
Victorian Earns
Top Arts Medal
The Governor-General's Gold Medal for the leading gradu
ate in the faculty of Arts and Science went this year to 20-
year-old victoria boy, Michael Charles Lewis Gerry.
Michael,    a   science    student
attended Victoria College for
two years before coming to
UBC. He will return to UBC in
the fall to study for his master's
degree in Chemistry on an $1800
National Research Council Bursary for graduate studies. Much
of his university costs have
been paid for with the aid of
During the summer Michael
is working at the Pacific Laboratories, Esquimalt.
In the sports field, he is
interested in playing cricket and
grass hockey.
David Wade Henderson, 21,
of Vancouver, had a standing
almost identical to that of th>?
winner but two awards could
not be made. Therefore, for the
first time in post-war history
an "honorable mention" n«s
The two boys have had surprisingly similar careers in their
past two years at UBC. Last year
Michael stood first in chemisti >
and David was close behind him
in second place. In addition last
year they both received $500
scholarships. I
David will start graduate
work in September at the Mass-
achussets Institute of Technology on one of the three scholarships he was offered this spring.
As is customary in the Eastern
States, he will go straight for
his Ph.D.
City Council lias taken no
action on a Students' Council
brief requesting special concessions for students in West Point
Grey boarding house restrictions.
President Dave Edgar presented the brief May 10.
Enforcement of existing regulations will force many students
out of the area where most out-
of-town students seek quarters—
between Sixteenth, Alma, the
waterfront and Blanca.
Edgar said that there will not
be enough on-campus housing
despite new dormitories.
Besides the hardships that
rigid enforcement of present
rules would work on students,
homeowners who rely heavily
on student rental might also be
adversely affected, the brief
Edgar proposed two major
arguments in favor of his application. Both are backed by the
results of a questionnaire sent
to a random sampling of 2300
homes- in the West Point Grey
The 900 replies received and
tabulated show that:
1. Most residents in the area
are sympathetic to the housing
needs of UBC students;
2. Most are not unwilling to
have students living in the area
in numbers in excess of those
allowable under present city
zoning laws.
His application v.-as opposed
by a delegation from North-west
Point Grey Homeowners' Association, representing owners
from Fourth to the waterfront
and Discovery to Blanca.

The 1960 graduating class of
the University of British Columbia has presented a gift of $3500
to the UBC library.
The graduating class cheque,
presented to President N. A. M.
MacKenzie, will be used to purchase research material for the
new division of special collection in the library.
David McGrath, graduating
class president, and Miss Jeri
Wilson, class secretary, presented the gift to President MacKenzie.
"The gift," said McGrath, "is
a token of appreciation from th?
graduating class for the help
that was received from the library staff during four years as

"Such material," he added,
"is vital if we are to have a first

offerings in the field of graduate studies."
Every year UBC's graduating
class donates its surplus funds
to some campus project. Examples of gifts of previous
classes are, new doors on the
library, pieces of sculpture and
help in financing the Brock mosaics.
This year's gift was given in
response to a campaign currently
being conducted by the Friends
of the Library — an organization formed in 1956 to encourage
support for the UBC Library.
They are trying to raise $50,000
annually for purchase of research material. i

Privilege - And
That a university education is a training for life, and
that it is enjoyed only by a favored few, are facts that university graduates must not forget.
The privilege of higher education demands repay al; it
confess definite responsibilities upon the recipient.
It is the first duty of the graduate to "spread the light."
He* must do this by using his talents and his special
knowledge to the fullest degree. Whether teaching, creating,
or applying, he must strive to make the world a better place
inwhich to live.
Further than this, it is his duty to lead. To do this, he
must know and understand the needs and desires of his
fellow men.
H« must be informed about the world around him. He
rauist make sacrifices for the good of the community that
l«6ser men are not prepared to make. He must have the
fer«sight and knowledge to see farther and deeper than the
common man.
If he can. do this, and if he has the courage to act when
he sees the necessity for action, he will be fulfilling his task
in the community.
Democracy may be for the common man, but democracy
needs leaders. And not just any leaders, but educated
Government today has reached such a state of complexity that jls intricacies are beyond the grasp of the common
man. To avoid haying government fall into the hands of
bureaucrats and specialists, it is necessary—indeed-, it is a
matter of Vital importance—that every university graduate
should have a good knowledge of the structure of government and of the current ..problems confronting it.
The educated mav must play his part in guarding against
the subtle encroachments that would take democracy from
us.. He must defeat attempts at arbitrary government action
by detecting those that the common man, lacking the knowledge and trained perceptiveness of the university graduate,
might overlook.
Besides his duty to society, the educated man has a
duty to himself. University is designed to inculcate those
who pass through it with, keen perception and with that
important quality called the critical faculty.
The graduate must not forget that the faculties of criticism and perception are not static. They wither from disuse.
Education is a. continuous process, and if the graduate stops
learning the day after convocation, he will lose most of his
value to himself and to society.
The graduate, then, has a duty to himself and to society
to realize his responsibilities and to try his best to fulfill them.
By doing this, he will be able to guarantee a better "life
for himself and for his community.
Well - Informed?
From the first grade through university graduation, all
of us have been, subjected to constant pressure by teachers
and professors to become "well-informed."
We are told that we are not fulfilling our duty as a
citizen if. we do not know what is going on in the world of
public affairs.
We will not be able to pass intelligent judgment on the
problems of our time, if we do not keep ourselves "well-
informed," they tell us.
We have heard this from so many intelligent people! that
We decided it must be true.   And, indeed, it is true.
Somewhere along the line, however, someone forgot to
teach this lesson to the Conservative MP's who are now
running our government.
They don't see fit to inform the citizenry of the basis of
the security risk charges that they have made against UBC
lecturer Irene Rebrin.
They say that the data is "classified information."
What is classified information?   Who decided which in
formation should be published and which kept secret? What,
,   for that matter, is a security risk?
,        We don't know. Do you?
On an occasion such as this,
where men and women so diverse in education are gathered; it is appropriate to discuss a subject to which each
of us has been giving some
serious thought. One commonly considered is that university graduation is not the
conclusion of our education,
but rather the commencement.
Others frequently include the
function of a university, the
characteristics of our indebtedness to our parents, professors and fellow citizens.
Such topics are important
and deserve consideration by
each of us. There is, however, one subject which holds
a vital interest, not only to
the university graduate, but to
every citizen — the meaning
of a university degree. Consider for a moment the meaning of the degree which we
will receive this afternoon.
A university degree is not
merely a label indicating that
we may have attained a certain standard of knowledge
and training in the arts and
sciences. Rather it is something signifying that we have
gained an appreciation of the
areas of existing knowledge
and of the vast possibilities of
each new knowledge constantly opened up by research.
It means that we have developed the ability to discern
and draw distinctions and to
dissect and analyse the truth
for ourselves. In addition to
these facilities a university
degree signifies that we are
familiar with the chosen field
and that we have acquired a
vocabulary of sufficient scope
to enable us to clearly and
freely convey these ideas to
It signifies that we have
learned to maintain an open
mind for free and logical discussion and that we have also
gained the ability to develop
original ideas and to synthesize the thoughts of others in
our own conclusions.
' We, who have earned our
degrees, have responsibilities.
Our first responsibility is that
of understanding and protecting our freedoms. Protected
as Ave have been while attending university where intellectual freedom is a very foundation, we are somewhat unprepared for« the prejudice
and bigotry we shall meet in
the outside world.
At the present time we are
not fully aware of the significance of the freedoms we
have enjoyed during our life
at university. In the future,
as we realize the importance
of these freedoms, we must
struggle to maintain them and
extend them to others.
Freedom of thought and
x freedom of speech are two 6f
our most precious possessions.
Without these freedoms, education in its true sense could
not longer exist.
Our second responsibility is
to use the knowledge we have
gathered during the past few
years. Although our courses
of study have provided us
with a path to follow, there
are many important decisions
to be made.
We must be careful to avoid
intellectual stagnation. We
should not permit ourselves to
become lost in the passivity
and conformity of our expanding civilization. Knowledge
is of little value unless it is
The third and perhaps most
important responsibility we
accept today is that of sharing
our knowledge with those who
desire and need it. "Nothing
of knowledge is lost by being
shared." Almost two-thirds
of the world population is illiterate. Most of these people
have the desire to learn, but
have lacked the opportunity.
It is our responsibility, as it
is the responsibility of every
educated citizen, to share our
knowledge with as many people as possible.
Leaving this university today, we take with us the indelible imprint of the dedicated men and women who
have shared their wisdom
with us. If, in the years just
ahead, the imprint wears and
memories fade, at ieast let us
remember these words of William Cowper:
"Knowledge is proud thatv
he knows so much,
Wisdom is humble that he
knows no more."
Always 'Tuum Est'?
■ The spirit of Tuum Est is the outstanding theme in the
vigorous history of our University. In particular the maxim
It Is Yours" or "It's Up To You" has come to be associated
with student contribution to University expansion.
The personal enthusiasm of the students of the First
Great Trek of 1922 who, during a zealous campaign gathered
56,000 signatures to demand action from the government to
build on the Point Grey site, has continued and matured
throughout the years. In 1927 the first student drive for a
gymnasium took place and the gym opened one year later.
During the struggling thirties the tradition of student contribution to the expansion of the campus grew steadily
firmer. Funds for the Brock Memorial Building were provided mainly by the students and the modern extension,
completed in the fall of 1957, was completely financed by
student funds. Other examples of student-supported expansion are the stadium and playing fields. The War Memorial
Gymnasium, which honors the men and women of British
Columbia who served in the two World Wars, was financed
in a major degree by a special student levy.
UBC's Second Great Trek, thirty-four years after the
first, was instituted because of the need for increased housing and academic facilities. The provincial government conceded that a matching grant would accompany any donations
from industry, business and private individuals to the amount
of ten million dollars; a Development Fund was set up in
order to handle all contributions. And the students of UBC
voted a $5 per year fee increase oyer three years to aid this
fund raising for student housing on campus.
It is no wonder that the motto "It's Up To Yqu" is so
revered by UBC students. Of his compulsory $24 per year
student fee, the individual student pays $10 for building expansion. Half of this goes to the Development Fund, the
other half for Brock Extension payments.
It may be that we have set a dangerous precedent. In
no other university in Canada has the individual student
contributed so much to the building program of his university. The recent statement by University administrators
urging the student body to support, by a student levy, a
Recreation building indicates that this role of the student is
to continue. Such a building which would include a skating
rink, indoor swimming pool and curling rink undoubtedly
would be a boost to the athletic program, but at the individual
student's expense.
Perhaps it is time to/ take a stand, before .both individual
resources and initiative are unnecessarily usurped;*

University President
Graduation is an event in the calendar of the University
to which I always come with mixed feelings. There is, on the
one hand, the pleasure and satisfaction of seeing students who
have spent four or more years of hard and concentrated study
leaving to begin their chosen careers and, on the other, there
is the feeling of regret which always comes when good friends
depart. Throughout my university career I have drawn the
deepest satisfaction from associations with other human beings
and the realization that familiar faces will not be with us is
for me a source of sadness. I hope that wherever you go or
whatever ycu do, you will continue to think of the University
of British Columbia as one of your spiritual homes, and that
you will return from time to time to meet the members of
the teaching staff and to renew acquaintances with persons
with whom you worked and studied ruring your University
days. Whether you realize it or not, your fellow students and
the members of the teaching staff have left their particular
stamp upon you and they have»helped in their own way to
make you whatever kind of man or woman you are on this
occasion of graduation. I hope that your years with us have
brought you a sense of satisfaction, self-confidence and
strength and that the virtues which we have tried to inculcate
will serve you well in your chosen career. I give you all my
very best wishes for happiness and success and I hope too
that, wherever you go, you will remember us and your University.
Student President
I would like at this time to express my congratulations
and best wishes to you the members of the graduating class
and to thank you on behalf of the Alma Mater Society for
support and enthusiasm over the past few years.
The University has grown rapidly since you first came
and you have seen many changes—the new Buchanan building, the extensions to the Library and Chemistry buildings,
to mention a few. It has enriched your lives and given you the
thirst for knowledge. In return you have given it your services
and interest in both the academic and extra curricular spheres
of activity.
Some of you will further your studies, others will go out
to your chosen professions. No matter what your future occupation, or how far distant your home, we hope that your interest in the university will not diminish after your graduation. You can play an important part in creating greater public awareness for higher education. If the university is to continue its expansion it must have the cooperation and assistance
of everyone.
You carry with you the fine traditions of UBC and we are
confident you will live.up to them. TUUM EST.
Alumni President
Some graduates leave the University intent on concealing their -whereabouts from fear of receiving dunning letters.
Others disclaim interest because they have the idea that the
Association is solely concerned with attendance at games or
Both are wrong, of course, but understandably. Many
Alumni Associations seem to concentrate on funds and football.
Not so the Alumni Association of U.B.C. We do invite
contributions, once a year, to the Annual Fund. We also encourage alumni to attend, play or support athletics, and to
attend Homecoming, Reunions and other special events.
But these are not our major activities.
During the past year the Association, through its Board
Divisions, Committees and Branches has:
1. Presented a Brief to the Government urging higher
operating grants.
2. Recommended the appointment of a Royal Commission on Higher Education.
3. Studied and made recommendations to the University
on problems of residences, counselling and placement,
standards, and equalization grants.
4. Sponsored a Community Relations Conference, Academic Seminar and panel discussions.
5. Established "University Committees" in certain communities in cooperation with the Extension Department.
6. Established, in Medicine and Commerce,., advisory
committees to study curriculum and other matters.
7. Promoted alumni interest in Senate elections.      .
These are self-interest motives, but powerful ones. I am
confident that the 1960 graduates will also be motivated by
a sense of loyalty and gratitude and will, in due course,
become active members of the Alumni Association of the
University of British Columbia.
Congratulations and good fortune!
Incoming President
Members of the Graduating Class:
Most of you have spent at least four years at this University. Many of you have spent longer. Throughout that
time you have gained the beginning of that which is commonly known as education.
I hope that your gains and accomplishments while studying at the University of British Columbia have been enhanced
by a rich and broad extra-curricular programme. It is only
by participating in activities outside the classroom, by exchanging your ideas with others, by finding out what other
people think and feel that any real value can be gained from
attending a University.
As the most recent graduates, you are in the best position
to look back at your years at U.B.C. and to judge whether
or not the extra-curricular programme has provided the necessary stimulus to the learning process, a climate which aug-
_menis and supplements the curricular programme, rather than
detracts from it. |
As incoming President of the Alma Mater Society, I am
deeply interested in this situation. If you as graduates have
any comment on this most important question, I would be
more than pleased to accept them. f
I wish you all every success in your future endeavours.     £ j

Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery urged universities to train leaders to end the cold war, at a special congregation in UBC Armories May 9.
Montgomery spoke on leadership after receiving an
honorary doctor of laws degree.
He said that the West now suffers from a lack of
courageous leadership. To remedy this, he proposed that
,  universities teach leadership as a subject.
"They could train leaders who might; get us out of the
cold war," Montgomery told an audience of about 1,000.

Vancouver's Leading Newspaper
Graduation Poem..'60
WELL, HERE WE ARE. It is a question.
Whether we are satisfied or dissatisfied:
If we have any opinion at all.
We seem to be puzzling and wondering "j
Just exactly what the past four years were all about,
Like infants suddenly and inexplicably literate. "J
(The Post-Grads, of course,
Have been wondering for a little longer.)
Sometimes it seems to have been a loss,
Sometimes a gain. All in all,
Gain and loss, benefit and cost,
Growth and labour, and all our busy little plans,
Have dissolved now like last week's dreams
In a grand  grey  question-mark.
Another problem: We are, no doubt,
Proud as modesty will let us be
Of these our laurelled achievements.
But have we any right to pride?
In this the hour we choose for jubilation,
Are we remembering the tired teachers
Who frowned throughout our Grubby Days?
Do we remember divers frantic parents,
Occasional optimistic magistrates,
And kindly uncles who coughed up coin?
They are dead in our past, I fear,
Like grubby knees and shameful diapers.
What do we think about, now?
Do we think of other people;
People we may eventually direct,
People we will marry and beget,
People we will work for,
And all those faceless people
Whom we pass, with sneers, in the street?
Executive — Housewife — Bricklayer — Lawyer —
Shoe-saleman — Drunk — or Water meter-reader: !
Are not  they  also part   of   us?
Our right of responsibility?
Do we think of our common blame and fame,
Let us never think
That it does not matter.
Some folks said, and say,
We are the next generation's hope. Noble sentiment;
But the horrible thing about noble sentiments
Is that one is expected to live up to them,
However incorrect the thought might be.
Give us only time,  and trust and help,
And We with you also will try to build
A somewhat more bearable world.
It is well for us
To have finished our courses here.
It will be a good thing for us to go out,
And make ourselves a place
(We will manage it, with elbow-pushings).
It will be an even better thing, though;
If we can discover why we did it,
And then get our children to follow us
— But not, we pray, too faithfully.
No time now, to wonder if it was worth it:
It has to have been. And only to us ourselves
Will the evidence ever be certain, Yes or No.
The study, the trouble, and the perseverance
Are not over now: they only may change their form;
They will not go away.
But it was good for us to be 'here, though,
And we may even  have done some  good—
Sad thing if we have not. Also
We have sealed some friendships, unsealed others,
And woven for ourselves  a  tapestry
Of days and joys and coloured pain,
A web of times and hours, works and sleeps,
Of images and symbols: a lasting memorial.
We will never forget what we have done here.
So here we stand: tremulous, stiff-chinned,
Apprehensive and fierce, ready to bite the World first
If need be; also quite ready
For the World to fold us in its bosom.
Let us be gracious: apart from that
We are ready.
So tltere We are.

THE   U JB ¥ S S E Y
Page 9
A Chronicle Of Yet Another Year
What is the aim of history? I
Well, one answer can be found
in the Historia Pontificalis by
the twelfth century Englishman, John of Salisbury. His
purpose, he states, is:
"to relate noteworthy matters so that . . . men by examples of reward or punishment may be made more
zealous in the fear of God
and the pursuit of justice.
The records of the chonicles
are valuable for establishing
or abolishing customs; and
nothing, after the knowledge
of the grace and law of God,
teaches the living more surely and soundly than the
deeds of the departed."
Now, if that last phrase
sounds too gloomy, you can
relax, for our concern today is
to consider the deeds, praiseworthy and otherwise, of the
living in this our year of graduation, 1959-60.
It was not too difficult to
find the first custom to be abolished. After a summer's hard
work, UBC students flocked
back to the University for their
annual vacation, only to find,
alack alas, that fees indeed had
been raised $100. For a small
percentage of the student population, this burden was removed by B.C. Government Scholarships. Someone cynically
suggested that less fortunate
students would have'to cut the
•number of their coffees from
five to four a day. But the toll
was somewhat more serious.
Although enrollment had increased, it was considerably
less than had been expected.
Both for us, the students at
UBC, and those who could not
come back, Social Credit was
our Social Debit.
Another custom that oould
be abolished is the new parking system. Allocation of lots
only served to cause traffic
snarls at the beginning of the
year. With too few spaces in
the A, B. C, D lots and too
many in the G lot, the only one
to derive any benefit was Buster's Towing, Over the past
few years, Buildings and
Grounds has received the most
criticism for authoritarian
bungling, but Food Services,
Housing, and this year the
Book Store, have also competed valiantly in this competition for unpopularity.
However, there were some
praiseworthy events. This
year a new Music Department
was created under Dr. Welton
Marquis, who did such an outstanding job in conducting
Handel's Messiah. Besides the
addition of new courses, an orchestra, a chamber ensemble,
The Musicum Collegium, and
a new choir were formed from
the raw material of UBC stu
dents. The Wednesday noon
hour concerts, presented by
Mr. Adaskin and Special
Events, have become a permanent feature of UBC's cultural
life, and, as usual, these concerts were accorded enthusiastic response by the students.
Special Events continued to
edify the student body by presenting noted speakers, such as
General Romulo, and various
concerts by the Vancouver Orchestra and visiting performers.
Finally several excellent
plays, among them "Romanoff
and Juliet" were presented by
the Players Club. In some respects at least, our university
is growing up.
This year was a constructive
one in other respects. Or
should I say a year of construction. In fact, new buildings seemed to sprout up all
over the place, adding new
varieties to the architectural
jungle of our campus. A new
wing to the Chemistry Building, the luxurious Faculty Club
Building, three men's dormitories, and a Common Block
were opened this year. Still
under construction are the new
wings to the Biological Sciences Building, the Buchanan
Building and the Library. Anyone; Jwho has studied at exam
time; under the delightful cacophony of pneumatic hammers
will appreciate the significance
of the new Library wing.
Our university is becoming
more international. About 10
percent of the students are
from about fifty different
countries; some are here on
WUSC, Canada Council, and
Colombo Plan scholarships.
Moreover, our university has
one of the few International
House Centres on the continent. The student body itself
took a more active interest in
international    student  affairs.
On two occasions, the Students' Council sent petitions
protesting the execution of
Hungarian students and the
subjugation of South Africans.
More effective were fund
raising campaigns to help student victims of the Japanese
typhoon and the Moroccan
Finally, a World Refugee
Year Committee was formed to
aid refugee students; but the
fact that only one fifth of the
quota was raised shows that
many students are still apathetic to the plight of others.
At first, the academic year
just seemed to drift into existence. The usual Vancouver
weather made the annual frosh
hazing a rather soggy affair.
However, the frosh appeared
to be more active this year.

Genuine elections were held
for once, and the active executive continued to clamour
throughout the year to prove
that the frosh were a match
for the Engineers. Qctober
also brought the annual Leadership Conference, and the
Blood Drive. As usual, the
Leadership Conference was
wet. It rained. During the
Blood Drive, the Aggies proved that they could fill bottles
with other liquids besides milk.
The | pace of activities increased in November. Homecoming, with the addition of
Great Trekkers, was ai bigger,,
noisier and more crowded affair than ever before'. In a
second celebration, due recognition was accorded to our
campus mascot with a special
Thunder Day Ceremony. This
event was somewhat marred by
the mysterious dognapping
caper, cleverly executed by the
Wizards of AWS. More serious
was the Brock Paintings Caper;
so far, $40,000 worth of paintings are still in the hands of
art thieves.
The world of sports continued to spark interest. Proceeds from the annual Tea Cup
Game in November, between
the Home Economics team and
the victorious Bloody Marys,
went to the Children's Hospital. A somewhat more distinguished football team, the UBC
Thunderbirds, surprised the
smug pessimists by romping
off to first place in the WCIAU.
We shall pass over the dreary
exam period to the joys of the
new year. The first month
was marked by a raft of speeches by the noted politicians,
Mr. Green, Mr. Bonner and
Mr. Tim Buck. Of course, the
aforesaid gentlemen would protest vigorously against being
placed on the same raft. Mr.
Bonner appeared a sadder and
wiser man after the debacle of
two years ago. Although the
meeting was dull, student reception was much more sensible than that accorded to the
unfortunate Mr. Buck. Speaking of freedom, the Ubyssey
fired a volley of barbed shafts
at the Students Council for its
alleged restrictions on freedom
of the press. January ended
on a gayer note with the annual Mardi Gras and the UBC
victories in the McGoun Cup
February, of course, is the
month of elections. We students seem to become more
apathetic as the years pass.
Half of the council seats went
!   by acclamation in a most dull,
election. Dull, except for the
Ubyssey's condemnation of the
so-called Blue Blazer crowd -
and the student body in general. By the way, John wasn't
followed this year, and Lester's
Liberals, by an upset, formed
the Mock Parliament Government, The SCM was active, politically and otherwise, this
year with its noon hour soapbox speeches. Social Credit,
apparently, is like the weather:
everybody talks about it, but
no one does anything about it.
However, the new UBC Voters
Association decided to take a
crack at it. Finally, there was
the Academic Symposium,
which some maintain is becoming a Spring Leadership Conference. _j
March brought the annual
Spring General Meeting, and
by some quirk of luck the unwanted Fall Meeting was finally abolished. Changes in the
form of student government
may be in the offing, with
carte-blanche given to the Haskins Committee. March and
April are also the months ol
essays, theses and final exams.
Since most of us had to cram
for these exams, the moral can
be left unsaid.
And so it is May.   For many
the blood,, tears, toil and sweat,
the joys and the anguish have
passed   anjd   now become jthe
elements of our-• own conceptions of the history of opr unij

Stewart Cecil Clark, -21y. of
Nanaimo, won the Horner Gold
Medal for Pharmacy for topping
his graduating class.
Stewart has headed his class
for each of his four years in
pharmacy. Scholarships were a
great aid in financing his university education.
After graduation Stewart plans
to go into the retail end of pharmacy because he enjoys dealing
with the public.
Stewart was quite active in
campus affairs. This year he
was his faculty's graduating
class representative.

his first year at UBC, Stephen
also topped his class.
Next year he intends to do
post graduate work at Duke University in North Carolina, from
where he received a $1,000 scholarship and an additional $600
for assisting in research.
Ken Winslade topped this

Director, Department  of
University Extension
Was Mozart, the child prodigy, educated at the age of
eight? Is the young man who
won the $64,000 question on the
topic of space travel, educated?
Will the 1,500 UBC graduates
of 1960 leave the campus as
educated men and women?
. To all these questions, my
answer is an emphatic NO. One
does, not get an education by
Studying a few years, no matter
fiow bright the student. Education is a life-long challenge and
struggle to train, develop and
enrich one's mental and physical
Capacities to the maximum.
Many a student passes through
the halls of learning with very
Jittle educational paint left on
fliiru    This is /particularly true
fm cases, Where he has avoided
selecting liberal    arts    courses
wherever possible and confined
.his .studies  mainly  to   training
courses,   &f whit use, then, is a
itjideirfcs stay at a university in
terms of obtaining an education?
' I-think of his university sojourn
simply as a short period of initiation,    having    his    curiosity
aroused for more knowledge and
ultimate wisdom, learning where
to locate sources for continuing
, education,    acquiring    a    taste
which can distinguish the first-
rate from the common^rate.
If the graduate has been assisted to develop a disciplined
mind, then the University has
started him off on the road to
ah education. A disciplined
mind is the product of hard
work in which the ingredients
are about 5% inspiration and
95% perspiration. Emerson has
a word for it: "God offers every
man the choice between truth
and repose; take Which you prefer, you can never have both."
... If we accept this premise, for
an education, the problem then
is how to provide for life-long
learning. What happens after
school  and  university now be
comes far more important than
what happened during school
and university days. This applies to the student in the professions as it does to the liberal
arts major. The successful practicing physician, the geophysi-
cist, the horticulturist, the teacher or the social worker all
have learned the discipline of
furthering their education, whether on their own, through their
professional organizations or
through continuing university
extension courses. But successful living goes far beyond professional competency. A 'full
life' demands of the individual
that he constantly unlearn and
relearn facts, for his opihions
are only as good as his facts. It
calls for a sensitive awareness
of the social and economic scene
about him and a willingness to
improve this environment. It
invites him to acquire a discriminating . appreciation of, and
an interest to experiment creatively with one or more of the
art forms. It pre-supposes that
the college graduate has learned, in a sense, to attend a university as long as he lives, be it
through a continuing use of the
library, through living room Or
lecture hall courses in the liberal
arts, or in other ways.

Why was Irene Rebrin denied permanent status by immigration department officials?
;-     Under ^the Immigration Act, she is not in class of stateless
persons who qualify as immigrants (that is, she is not a person
„ from Europe, a Commonwealth citizen, or a person with relatives in Canada).
" The court hearing that ended May 13 was concerned only
with the legality of the proceedings by which Miss Rebrin was
refused permission to stay in Canada.
These were:   1.  the deportation   order and special inquiry;
• 2. the dismissal of the appeal; 3. the minister's refusal to use her
special powers to  waive the deportation  order  (apparently   for
security reasons).
The courts have decided that the procedure was within the
law. The courts cannot change a law or judge it good or bad,
that is up to you.
Is Irene Rebrin a security risk? Few people know.
.      On April 8, Miss Rebrin gave four reasons why she might
be considered a security risk. She stated that she had included
them in a complete biography she had given to the immigration
department on request.
1. Her father, a Russian judge who fled the Communist Revolution, was a member of the White Russians Club (later renamed
the Soviet Citizens Club) in Peiping, where she was born and
2. Her family travelled from Red China to Hong Kong on
what she called the brown pass—the Soviet passport issued White
Russians living in China.
3. She was once fired for unnamed security reasons from a
job in an American army PX in Peiping, but was hired a month
later by the American Red Cross.
4. She was later harrassed by Chinese Communists as being
t*. *n American spy.
This is the sum total of information available to the public.

• He pointed out that he
could not view the judgment .of
the special inquiry, (that led to
the first denial of ' permanent
status), but only decide if the
inquiry had been properly held
under the Immigration Act.
• He said that there was no
need at any time for the minister to mention security, as she
had valid grounds for dismissing the appeal apart from the
question  of security.
• He made two major criticisms of the Immigration Act,
saying that it is intractable,
leaving little room for ministerial discretion and that it constitutes, to some extent, a denial
of civil rights.
The following is a chronological recapitulation of the Rebrin

A Great Year For UBC
The  year  1959-60    was    not
without    its   moments   in   the
world of sport.
Highlighted by the bold switch
from the Evergreen Conference
, into the Western Canadian Inter-
Collegiate Athletic Union, it was
one of the most fruitful in UBC
- Many of UBC's extramural
teams competed in the new conference, and next year will see
even greater participation. This
year, most competitions were in
the form of one-, two-, or three-
day tournaments, with only
men's Basketball and Football
engaged in league play.
. In April, it was announced
that hockey will be made the
third major sport in the W.C.I.
AiU., effective in 1961-62.
The W.C.I.A.U. is one of the
most widespread college conferences In North America, stretching some 1500 miles from Vancouver to Winnipeg. Its member schools are the Universities
of B.C., 'Alberta, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba.
But UBC didn't have much
trouble — about the only beating they took was in the pocket-
UBC teams — both men's and
women's — were usually far
superior to those of other W.C.I.
A:U. members, and they collected the lion's Share of the titles-

Crawford, of course, hit the
headlines early this year with
the announcement that he had
signed with the New York

The Basketballers, under Jack
Pomfret, ran away with the
W.C.I.A.U. crown, compiling an
11-1 record in league play.
They also played several exhibition games, and "indulged"
in the city Senior "A" league.
There, they finished third, and,
after many hasty and foggy decisions by the B.C.A.B.A. lost
their bid for an Olympic berth
when Deitrich-Collins dumped
them in the semi-finals.
They finished their gruelling
schedule with a fine 21 and 14
record. In the short space of a
month, between January 15 and
February 16, they played no less
than M3 games! Never again,
decided UBC officials, and next
year the 'Birds will play only
the 12 W.C.I.A.U. games, plus
about ten exhibitions.

Recreation Added
To P.E. Faculty
The first full-time undergraduate program in Canada to
train students for work in the field of recreation will commence at UBC's school of physical education in September.
The Senate has authorized the ,
present school to change its
name to "The School of Physical Education and Recreation."
Object of the new program is
to train "general practitioners"
in the field of recreation, says
Professor Robert | Osborne, director of the school.
Students will take approximately 20 percent of their
course work in professional recreation and the balance in the
social sciences. All students will
be required to take a fundamental course in either music, drama
or art.
Field work for the new program will be carried out in cooperation with the Vancouver
board of parks and recreation.
Few other campii in North
America have such a wide variety of resources for carrying
out such a program, Professor
Osborne stated.
"We conceive of recreation as
being much broader than just
programs of sport and UBC will
provide us with a unique laboratory for training students,"
he added.

ONE OF THE THREE men's residences cons rucied last year, this structure nouses male
aspirants to university degrees.   More are now in the process of creation.
Nitobe Gardens A Memorial
Ta Japanese Internationalist
An authentic Japanese garden, complete with tea house,
Japanese brides and small lakes,
was formerly opened at UBC
early this month.
A Japanese landscape expert,
Kannosuke Mori, has lived at
UBC for "more than a year planning and supervising construction of the three-acre showpiece.
Located on Marine Drive, the
garden is called the Dr. Irazo
Nitobe Memorial Garden. It
perpetuates the memory of Dr..
Nitobe, a Japanese internationalist who was a former secre-
•tary-general of the League of
Nations. He died in Victoria,
B.C., in 1933.
Everything in the garden,
from entrance gate to rocks over
which an artificial waterfall
tumbles, follows generations of
tradition established by Japanese landscape artists.
Focal point of the three-acre
garden, intended as a symbol of
Japanese-Canadian goodwill, is
a replica of a tea house sent prefabricated from Japan. The doll
size tea house will also contain scrolls, vases and utensils
for use in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
Interested Japanese business
men and members of the Japanese-Canadian Citizens' Association contributed approximately
$25,000 for items included in the
In addition to the tea house,
an authentic entrance gate, a
garden shelter and hundreds of
trees and shrubs were contributed directly irom Japan.
According to Dr. John Neill,
i supervisor of landscaping, the
j project will be an integral part
I of the UBC botanical garden and
I a valuable teaching aid for students interested in plant science.
Arts Centre
Foreseen In
Near Future
Organizations, agencies and
private individuals representing
more  than  10,000   B.C.  citizens
have Written the university in
the last three months urging the
construction of a fine arts centre
on campus.
The center, which UBC plans
to build at the north end of the
campus where the main parkins
lot is now located, will house the
schools of music and architecture, a theatre for the newlj
created department of drama, an
art gallery and a teaching museum.
All these departments are operating out of huts- or other unsuitable quarters at present.
Work on the new building wili
commence next Fall.
The total cost of construction
will be-about $1.5 million, half
of which will come from the
Canada Council.
"Our aim," says President
MacKenzie, "is to serve our
community — the province of
British Columbia — in this im- \
portant field,- and to provide the
qualified teachers in the arts,
who are badly needed throughout the province."
Sports Arena Projected
A winter sports arena is proposed as the next addition to
UBC's recreational facilities.
As it is now planned, the arena will include a skating rink,
curling rink, and an indoor swimming pool. Squash courts
may also be included.
The administration has suggested that the students finance
the building.   It will cost about $1 million.
The proposed site of the arena is next to Empire Pool
where parking lot "D" is presently located.
years   ago,   almost   $9
worth   of  buildings   have  been
erected on this campus.
Growth Continuing
As Graduates Leave
There is a vast difference between the UBC campus of
today and the one that confronted the class of '60 when its-
members took their first tentative steps towards the sheepskins they are now receiving.  ■ — —
Since the thrills and frustra-   ($16 million;,   were   ready   for
tions of that fi^st registration in ;       '       ,
March saw the comoletion of
the dismal armories four or five ; the $1 2 million Bio-science ad-
million j dition and International  House
— for which most of the funds
were  donated   by    the    Rotary
These are . the sweeping
changes that ha"*ve occurred during the career of the class of '60.
There is every indication that
the class of '64 will witness even
more rapid change.
The expansion program —•
which started in 1956—shows no
signs of slackening, and a vast
number of buildings and additions are in the process of springing up or are patiently waiting
their turn on drawing boards.
Scheduled for completion next
Fall are the $700,000 Pharmacy
Building and $1:7 million additions to the Buchanan Building
and the Library.
New Medical Sciences ($2,-
750,000) and Education (S3 million) buildings should be ready
for use by September 1961.
Still in the planning stage are
a $750,000 Chemical Engineering Building and the $1.5 million Fine Arts Center.
When these facilities have
been completed—it is hoped by
the Fall of 1962—almost $20
million will have been spent.
Any grads who feel they* are
experts on campus geography
are invited to come back in 1965
and look around, providing they
can find the parking lots.
Unfortunately, however, the
armories are still with us, and
since we have no convocation
hall, it appears that the grads
will be leaving this institution
through the same dismal door
that admitted them as freshmen I
The earliest of the buildings
to be constructed during the career of the class of '60 was the
$70,000 Education Building (a
semi-permanent, building which
;s likely to remain permanently).
It was completed in 1956 along
with the Brock Extension (student funds), two residences, and
some agriculture facilities.
In 1957, the most important
buildings to be completed were
the Medical Research Labs and
the Heather Street Medical
School Building. A sculpture
studio, deer barn, new Buildings and Grounds office, and
Principal's residence for Union
College also came into being in
The development fund, begun
in 1957, started to bear fruit in
1958. The $2 million Buchanan
Building was the most spectacular structure to spring up that
year. It was completed in January.
St. Andrew's Hall, St. Mark's
College, Federal Forest Products
Labs, a technological station,
and faculty row housing — each
of these has added utility to its
corner of our 1,000 acre campus. All were built in 1958.
In June 1959, the class of '60
witnessed the completion of the
plush $750,000 Faculty Club, a
gift from Mr. and Mrs. Leon
In February 1960, Pan - Hellenic House ($100,000), the new

By Students
UBC students traditionally
have relied on themselves in the
construction of student buildings.
The students, raising the necessary funds from their own
body, have erected two structures on campus with an ambitious third on the planning -
Brock Hall, the centre of student activities on campus, was
built entirely by student funds.
This building houses the majority of clubs and organizations
under the Alma Mater Society,
the AMS business offices, and
recreational and food facilities
for student use. The Students
Council, which operates the
AMS, occupies offices in Brock.
The War Memorial Gymnasium, built by the students of
UBC to commemorate those who
served in the two World Wars,
was given as a gift to the Uni-
, versity. Recently chosen as one
] of the ten outstanding buildings
j erected in Canada since the war,
it i? a large asset to the beauty
of the campus.
Jn the planning stage right
■ now is a new Student Union
| Building, which would replace
the present Brock Hall. It will
be a three-storey structure, with
i not only expanded office and
club facilities, but also greatly
increased recreational space.
When finalized, this will be entirely paid for by the students. -arorsday, May 19, 1960
LUXURIOUS ADDITION to the Chemistry Building  was completed during the  fall of
1959.   The modern extension faces University Boulevard.
Lately I have been trying to evaluate my years at UBC trying to have some "thoughts" on
the still surprising fact that I am now a graduate. So far, I have reached only pne conclusion,
"and that is that in these years I have come from a point of believing a university to- be for
me something of life-long necessity, to the point where I now believe that it is not so mudh a
necessity as a convenience, and as a convenience, it must be kept in its place.*
I suppose these are not the most gracious of parting words, but if education still has as
its aim a preparation for fruitful living, my sentiments are indeed complimentary. For there
is nothing fruitful about a life which owes its existence to any human institution, be it as
great as a university, or as humble as a football team.
i — .	
Freedom is a strange lesson to
learn alter the enforced reading
of countless books and the enforced hearing of so many millions of words. Until it is remembered that one willingly
submits oneself to this discipline, it seems that the gifts of
the university are negative in
nature. When the discipline becomes something • of choice,- freedom is the happy product, although not necessarily the solution, of the university life.
I have been wondering
whence came my old belief that
the university was a life-long
necessity, whether it was just
a quirk in me, or whether society has developed an unnecessary dependence upon its institutions of higher education. I
am wondering why I was guided
throughout my school years to
the university, and not to the
search for sufficient prudence
and wisdom to live fruitfully,
for the finding of which I now
Isnow the university to be but
one useful tool.
It is a strange society we have
that discounts the amorality of
a government - in face of its astounding technical advance, that
submits without qualification to
the university the task of directing its children as to how to live
their lives. Those who question
these alarming tendencies are
shushed by the statistics of so
many beautiful bridges and brilliant science graduates.
I can only say thank goodness
that  university    faculties     and
Koerner   Grants
The Leon and Thea Koerner

the foundation in the fall.
Almost $375,000 in grants has

various civil services still attract
the kind of people who take on
the extra duties of becoming
standards of morality and of
guiding wayward youth; perhaps
it is because the best of these
people have often been found
on campuses that the trend has
developed in the way it has. Of
course, that is only conjecture. .
It has been these people, and
their seeming freedom within
the academic atmosphere, which
has been the most valuable lib-
Wisp Of Memories
Ed. Noie:-^- This timeless article was written by a Ubyssey Editor
in 1953. It has been periodically reproduced in Graduation
Editions ever, since, and as a result we feel that in the interest
of the majority, it behooves us lo reproduce it again. We like
It is spring of '60 and the past four years have gone up in
smoke leaving only the wisp of memories and two extra letters
to your name. The twenty-five odd hours of written exams, the
essay deadlines, the good books found, the conversation, the
parties and games, and the people met during those four years
at UBC have left their mark on the '60 graduates.
Time and again the sweetest and the most bitter memories
will return, but the years are done, their work completed. They
were the closing door of adolescence and the entrance to maturity.
Now the press of an occupation, a family, the social responsibility
o*- the individual to his society replaces the lighter duties of
school  life.
As freshmen, life was one" great wonder—but a lot of fun.
During sophomore and junior years the work grew larger in
amount and more confusing in degree. By the beginning of fourth
year the goal was too close to forsake; and, besides, the disappointments were being forgotten, in favor of the more pleasant memories.
Now graduation is here and with it the awareness that this
is the last obligatory trip to the old campus, the last walk to the
Brock, the last opportunity to ignore the "Keep off the Grass"
sign. Today, the graduate receives his certificate: Baccalaureate:
a bachelor, the last step in a general education, first step towards
specialization. This is the time of parting, the final goodbye, and
now, the need for decision in a world certain only of its motion.
University life can be of benefit to each person. It may not
prepare an individual for the business of industry but it can
make the business of life more meaningful. It imparts a zest to
living: an appreciation of, and a sensitivity towards the ideaj
extant in a world of action; That quality of acuteness is sufficient
achievement for the general B.A. candidate; Being aware of ideas
and contemporary trends of thought and activity, their sources
and contemporary suitability is, in itself, the mark of an adult.
The power to evaluate, to adopt or discard, concepts and ideologies,
whether in literature, politics or the general attitude toward life,
signifies the maturity of mind found in a.well-rounded personality. That completeness o£ person is the goal of a general education and the key to satisfaction. If the years spent at UBC have
in any way begun or completed that movement towards maturity,
they were not wasted years.
Have Degree -
What Next?
Doesn't it make your heart feel good to know that you
have gained admission to that most exclusive of university
institutions, the 1100 Club? If you are wondering as to
whether you are a member of this organization or not, you
can be sure that if you are one of the graduating 1100 you .
definitely belong. ■....'
What possible benefits and privileges can be gained
from such a membership? Well, puzzle no more, for here
are a few activities and events that only YOU will be eligible
to participate in:
As a graduate you will be able to attend the tree planting
ceremony over by the new Biological Sciences Building. The
reasoning behind this event is not merely to provide the biologists with shaded relief from the summer sun, or to give
the scientists an opportunity to build nests to study ornithology first-hand. This ceremony is meant to serve as a
remembrance, of the grads to future years.
Since 1919 when the first tree was planted, the custom
has been continued with oak, basswood, elm, maple and dogwood trees sprouting up. And now that B.C. is "debt-iree"-, it
is rumoured that Premier Bennett is going to make UBC a
gift of a select grove of Aberhart "funny-money" trees to be
donated with the approval of H. R. MacMillan and the Hon.
Mr. Williston.
•*•        v        v
A UBC-sponsored event that grads have already eagerly
participated in was the infamous Booze Cruise to Belcarra
Park, which is notorious as one of Indian Arm's looser joints.
Incidentally, had there been any Indians in attendance, they
would really have gotten their wigs-warm with all that
flee-flowing firewater.
Many graduating coeds interested in snaring a husband
from the crop of eligible male grads, but who had not yet
bagged a victim prior to sailing time, returned triumphant
from the cruise. When questioned as to their successful mode
d'emploie, many only blushed and stammered that they only
did "what comes naturally". At present, the "natural" course
of action for those males seeking escape from tying that inevitable knot is to make rather hasty plans for leaving the
' <t*        v        *&
The majority of those grads with the itch for travel will
ultimately visit Europe. England leads the popularity parade
for sight-seeing and foreign job opportunities. In this regard,
graduates will be seeking work in teaching, drama, and even
photography {for those who aspire to follow the example of
Antony Jones's ascent to the "Darkroom'at the Top").
Some of the highlights among the many sights of Europe
that should appeal to grads would . include • the following;
London's Changing of the Guard (and to think that they are
grown men!); the Tower of London, where Henry VIII's many
wives were beheaded (in the days before alimony was even
dreamed of); those bohemian hotels in Paris that overlook
everything; those hostels where hot water comes out of the
cold water tap and no one comes out of the bathroom (just
like Fort Camp); and those sidewalk restaurants where meals
are eaten on the streets (recently-evicted UBC students will
be used to this). In Italy; Rome will enthrall you, Venice will
captivate you and Florence will take all your traveler's
The vistas of "broad", scenic splendor along the Riviera
offer the spectator more of an eye-full than that famous
tower in Paris-does.
*&      * v        v
Then there will be those grads who will either- go out
and work for a living" or else carry on in graduate workat
some other university. As the latter are in the minority, most
grads will be directing their talents into the most remunerative and satisfying channel of employment available.
Super-duper pension, insurance, hospital, and vacation
plans beckon the grad with the sort of come-on that the side-
'show barker excels at. The subtle showmanship of many interviewers is often convincing enough to lead the grad to accept
a job that he will later regret. A flagrant example of this sort
of mis-information is evident with those grads who will
accept a job offering a generous salary only to find that the
required training program involves a two-year hitch at the
company branch office at Great Blubber Bay, Que.'
It's unfortunate that so many UBC students have to
accept work with eastern Canadian companies when they
could remain in this west coast paradise. Why so many engineers head for Ontario, is a mystery; especially when the answer to all their prayers lie here in B.C.
• Now everyone knows that easterners lead soft, indolent
lives, drink water for refreshment, behave immorally, and are
incapable of succeeding at any task, save that of building
obsolete Bowmark missiles. Why not ride the crest of B.C.'s
growing prosperity rather than floundering in that eastern ■
trough, where more and more fish are jumping for that green
bait only to find they've hooked their teeth onto something
that they can't let go of. Even if your boss is Wenner-Gren,
don't despair, for when the Socreds annex the N.W.'T. to B.C.,
then think of the opportunities.
In closing, the degree of success or failure that each
grad will experience in his lifetime will vary with individual
determinaton and initiative as each faces, the multitudinous
challenges in today's world of apprehension, anxiety, and uncertainty.
■'Good-bye and good luck.
rary, reference work, and lecture for me. They found the
university the most valuable repository for their talents and
abilities, and having chosen it
freely, were free within its
bounds. Their existence is their
own, and a grasp of the value of
this fact has been my education
at UBC.
Freedom has been the product,
but the solution for all of us
lies in the years ahead. End of

One of Canada's most distinguished dermatologists has
been appointed head of a new department—that of Continuing
Medical Education at UBC.
Dr. Donald H. Williams will
give up his Vancouver practice
to head the new department.
According to Dean J. F. McCreary, Faculty of Medicine, the
purpose of the new department
will be three-fold.
Its first task will be to work
with various medical organizations in expanding and coordinating the courses available for
practising physicians.
A second function of the department will be to attempt improvement of internship and residency training programs by
working with the hospitals involved.
Thirdly, the department will
establish multi-discipline courses
preparing doctors for advanced
degrees in medicine.
