Registration week can be fun for the freshman, but it
can become confusing. The secret .is to follow the directions

At U.B.C, as in the army, it's "Hurry up and wait". Conformity is the Big Thing, but the
system brings ulcers. To help you, there will be many meetings: a general assembly and
coed meeting Thursday morning, and pre-Engineering, pre-Med, pre-Commerce, Home Ec,
pre-Forestry, and Arts meetings on Thursday afternoon.

Car Problem Attacked
Thru Issue of Stickers
This  year an   attempt   at   organization to  overcome   the'
parking difficulties which have existed in the past is being
made. Though the new regulations are not intended to solve
the problem completely, they are at least a definite step in
that direction.  . ; __
The essential aim of the new
system is to relieve congestion
which has previously plugged
the main concourse each Weekday morning, afternoon, and
evening. Though for most students there will be a longer
walk from their cars to the campus proper, the improvement in
general efficiency should more
than warrant the individual inconvenience.
New Music Department
Adds Another Degree
A Bachelor of Music degree is
now being offered at UBC.
More than fifty courses will
be added to the music curriculum over the next five years.
The program provides for an
honors course in music for the
B.A.   degree,   and   a   major   in
music for the B.Ed, degree.
r  Majors   will   be   offered   in
music history and literature,
composition, orchestral instruments, and voice. A piano major
will be offered in 1960.
The music department will be
a part of the new $1,500,000
Fine Arts Centre now being
planned by the UBC architects.
A "Collegium Musicum" for
faculty and students will also be
Welfare of Women
Concern of Posting
A wide variety of educational and welfare activities has
prepared Mrs. Helen McCrae for her new post as Dean of
Mrs, McCrae, who succeeds
Miss M. Dorothy Mawdsley, is
a graduate of Victoria College,
University of Toronto, the Ontario college of education and
the school of social work at
U.B.C. -
Before joining the U.B.C. staff
in 1950 as director of field work
and lecturer in case work, Mrs.
McCrae was district supervisor
for the social welfare branch in
New Westminster.
At the request of the United
Nations, Mrs. McCrae served in
Sweden as a consultant on child
welfare in 1953 and on case
work in 1954-5.
In her new post, Mrs. McCrae
will primarily be responsible for
supervising the welfare of all
women students on the campus.
! Each student is required to
register the license of his car
during Registration week in the
Armouries, whereupon he will
receive a sticker to be placed
in the lower right corner of the
This sticker will entitle him
to park in any lot designated for
student parking, and since the
number of stickers issued will be
known, there will supposedly be
ample space provided.
Those cars parked without
stickers or parked in lots other
than those provided for them
will be hauled away and impounded in a compound behind
the Buildings & Grounds offices.
In order to retrieve his* ear,
the erring owner will have to
shell out $5.00 to the Accounting
office and take his receipt to the
compound. These controls will
be in force from 7:30 a.m. to
6:00 p.m. Monday thru Saturday.
It is suggested that students
try to utilize other approaches
to the University besides the
University Boulevard, depending upon which lot they intend
to park in. Also, drivers should
not attempt to drop their morning passengers on the mam mall
and then park. Let 'em walk.    * \

To all those students who are
coming to the University of Bri-
»•"      tish    Columbia    for    the    first
time, I extend a very warm wel-
^<       come on behalf of my colleagues
and myself.
At the moment most of you
will feel'a little ill-at-ease and
>      bewildered,  perhaps even fearful at the prospect of what lies
in store for you during the coming academic year. The campus
of a university, by reason of the
many complex and varied activities which go on in its lecture
s       halls and laboratories, is rather
a formidable place to those who
see it for the first time. Ours is
a community Within a community, having its own government,
~~-%j      its own stores, post office, restaurants,    power-house—and    a
*- population of about 10,000 stu
dents and 2.000 members of
staff. It will take you some time
to settle down in this new environment ,to make new friends,
to develop sound work-habits,
and, in general, to find your
way about. I hope you make this
adjustment as quickly as possible, but, above all, I would
like you to remember that we
are all anxious to do whatever
we can to make your years at
the University happy, satisfying,
and rewarding.
Whether or not you realize it,
you are starting out on one of
the most interesting and valuable experiences of your life. If
you conduct yourself wisely, and
if you apply yourself seriously
to the task in hand, then I can
promise you the richest rewards
that   come   to   human   beings:
N.  A.  M.  MacKENZIE.
warm and abiding friendships,
elose association with men and
women of superior knowledge
and understanding, and, above
all, the privilege and opportunity of studying man and his
works—and the world in which
he lives.
■ As young adults coming to a
university, you have accepted a
new responsibility—that of self-
discipline. While we are all anxious to help you to the limits
of our time and resources, that
highly complex process whereby the student becomes a mature
and "educated" man or woman
is, in final analysis, the duty and
responsibility of the individual.
Your success is largely a matter of your own choosing, your
energy and initiative. With the
best intentions in the world, no
instructor can force you to spend
the long houfs in study, reading
and reflection - which are de»-
mandedj if "your career at thev
University is to. be suecessfuh
1 urge you all to spend your'
time profitably and wisely. A
great many people are watching
your progress with interest and
concern: not only your professors, but also your parents, your
friends, and the citizens of the
community from which you
come. You musl; do your best to
measure up to the trust all these
people have put in your talents
and abilities.
May your years at this university be good, happy, and useful years, and may each of you
find your heart's desire.
Welcome, Frosh, to the University of British Columbia.. As
a student at U.B.C. you automatically become a member of
the Alma Mater Society, your
organization, and you are invited
to support its many activities
held throughout the year. Every
one of you should be able to
find some' Way in which you
can participate: in the clubs, on
the teams, on council committees or by turning out to football games as spectators. There
are many varying degrees of participation.
The directors of the AMS are
the Students Council elected by
the student body each spring.
They allocate the monies to the
campus organizations and run
y    file general affairs of the student
body. Student government at
UBC is completely autonomous
and the responsibility of its
smooth running lies with the
council. You also have a large
voice in student government at:
the two annual general meeting^
at which time any council motion may be rescinded.
You are also invited to attend
the council meetings held in
Brock Hall on Monday nights at
7:30 and to participate in the discussions. It is the duty of the
students council to serve you the
students and to help you whenever possible.
The money which finances the
society is paid jointly with your
tuition fees when you register.
A portion of this money sponsors the men's and women's ex
tramural athletic programme,
the 90 campus clubs, the undergraduate societies and the cam«
pus newspaper "The Ubyssey".
The first activity of the year
is Frosh Orientation, a program
designed to introduce the new
student to the university, and
university life. It is our hope
that by visiting the clubs on
clubs day, by sending delegates
to the first Frosh Retreat^ by
attending the meetings herd'for
your benefit and by electing a
strong Frosh council that you
will adjust a little faster to the
university and student life.
These are your organizations
that you are seeing for the first
time and we want you to know
that you are welcome. Their success in the future depends upon
your decision.
One word of caution, do not
go overboard in joining clubs
and committees.. You, must remember that you are on campus
primarily for an education.
These activities are extra-curricular, there are no credits given
for them. We ask you to take a
keen and active interest in the
Alma Mater Society, $ut not at
the expense of your academic
standing. Budget your time wisely and you will find that your
life at university will be an enjoyable one.   •
Best of luck in the coming

Councelling   Services
On May 13, Jim Meekison of the students' council presented
a brief to the Senate that involved one or two rather drastic
and far-sighted changes in the present system of counselling
Saying that the transition
from high-school to university
was always difficult, the brief
' advocated a closer relationship
between freshmen and faculty
by means of a faculty counselling system, and asked that
such a system should be implemented as soon as possible.
The greatest advantage that
such a scheme would seem to
offer is that freshmen would be
able to avoid wasting their time
in faculties and classes that they
neither require nor enjoy, and
would be able to proceed as soon
as possible to a course of studies
that was most in line with the
actual requirements of whatever
career they ultimately intended
to follow.
Up to the present, many students have wasted as much as
three years taking courses that
they were not personally suited
for. The Studpnt Council also
believes that personal problems,
apparently a reason for many
Students failing or dropping out,
could be discussed and ironed
The greatest disadvantage to
this seems to be that there are
probably not one hundred faculty members — the required
number — who are trained in
such advisory services, and who
are willing to devote their already diminishing leisure hours
to the problems of adolescence
and young adulthood, at least
on any-organized scale.
It is the experience of this
reporter, as well, that faculty
members, when approached privately, will even now give up
a great deal of their time to
their students. Can we throw the
additional load of compulsory
counselling upon them?
Another bug in the apple pie
is that many students will not
wish to avail themselves of any
such counselling service, preferring to iron out their freshman problems for themselves.
Such students might actually oppose such a system very effectively.
The committee that was: appointed to study this brief has
returned to the Senate with the
recommendation that the problem be studied for a year, and
at the end of that time, any suitable action could be decided
Camp Elphinstone will be the scene of the Frosh Retreat this year. Freshmen will meet studei
leaders and members of the faculty to discuss student activities. Deadline for applications'*

Orientation  Retreat Planned
For Future Student Leaders
When Word reached us that
Students' Council was sponsoring a Frosh Retreat, we immediately searched for Dean
Feltham, the member in charge.
Armed with Webster's definition
of "retreat" ("an asylum for insane persons, inebriates, etc.")
we met Dean, Our idea was soon

The agenda includes nine
hours of informal, student-
faculty discussions (on matters
pertaining to student activities),
meals, a welcoming dinner, and
several parties, where matters
other than campus problems will
dominate. The rest of the time
wlil be free.
Our approval of this idea has
been echoed by Peter Meekison,
AMS-President. "The retreat is
an excellent opportunity for the
Frosh student to learn of campus
activities, particularly student
Cost to the student is a reasonable $4.50, which covers transportation to and from Elphinstone, lodging, and six meals.
Applications for the conference can be Obtained at the AMS
office before four o'clock on

To get to the Retreat, the ap-
A.W.S. and W.A.D. will hold
a big and little sister banquet
on Wednesday, Sept. 23 to help
frosh girls get acquainted with
other women students.
There will be talks by the
heads of various women's organizations on campus, as well as
a film, a skit, a singsong, and a
parade of Frosh Queen candidates.
Girls wanting big or little sisters can sign up at the Frosh
Orientation Booth during registration.
Frosh are expected to come
dressed as little sisters, and
there will be a competition for
the best costumes.
Tickets can be bought for 90c

f ow To Survive At UBC
So it's your first year at UBC? Big deal, eh! But
to a cynical old-timer like myself the new experiences you
will be grappling with are strictly minor-league. So just in
case you run afoul and can't quite make 1st base in this
Hectic game here are a few hints to get you on the ball.
To begin this guide for Freshmen,. I have prepared a selection of key items that should be assimilated and put into
JBractice immediately, i.e.; if YOU want to "belong."
On lectures: Morning lecture begin at 8:30 a.m. — yes,
that's half an hour earlier than high school. It's a temptation
to come late, but that's not recommended. But if you make it
a habit —- your prof WON'T spank you on the bottom and
s%nd you off sulking into the corner. Out here noisy latecomers are usually addressed in the following manner:
"Class will continue after our obstreperous friend has finished
his recreation of the Montana earthquake disturbance." Then
you will stare at this square who just isn't hep with the way
you made the scene at high school and you'll say, "Earthquake,
smirthquake, this creep is more cracked than the earth's crust."
On cars and parking: Arriving via auto to UBC is a
MUST. While it's considered weirdsville to come any other
way, it's Irue that a few hardy souls Will daily cycle their way
lout. However, upon closer examination, you'll find that these
"peddle-pushers" are really members of a more radical group
of Beatniks (the Player's Club) who are escaping the regimented conformities of car travel.
Once on campus you are faced with the burning (it may be
your motor oil) question — Where to park the Caddy? Try
the Main Mall, but when Daddy tires of paying out for those
pretty blue tickets that accumulate on your windshield —
start looking elsewhere and this year elsewhere may be
Spanish Banks or the Golf Course.
Cars are indispensible to all students. Not only do they
efve as headquarters for 12:30 lunches, but they also make a
:onvenient rendezvous for between-class lovers when the
lonsoon season makes the Library lawn too soggy a "play"-
On Engineers: If you have ever been chased up a tree by
bear or other creatures, beware of UBC's own unique species
f wild life — the Engineers (or at least that's what they're cal-
;d in polite society) who are untamed, uninhibited and un-
ressed — when compared with correct campus decorum,
they believe in a little "chaser" before every class), and un-
mdiingly they will douse you males in the Lily Pond (but
>n't worry, you're not the only ones more than a little wet
;hind the ears).
Life at UBC CAN be wonderful, Frosh, so keep these points
mind — but if the worst turns to worse, remember to
n For Executive
ear Meeting
enomenon does take place anally,  and a Frosh  council  is
•med which usually goes on to
a more than satisfactory job.
This has all been very fine in
it years. But unless you wish
go on trusting to luck, you
11 have to pay more attention
the election of your represen-
ives on council.
Frosh comprise the largest
;ment of the University popu-
ion—all the more reason for

Cairn Ceremony
Traditional Event
On Friday, September 18, freshmen will join with other under-graduate and graduate
students to take a part in what is perhaps the most important of the University's traditional
observances, the Cairn Ceremony.
Here, respects are paid to those students and interested  citizens  who  were responsible
for the establisment of the University on its present site.
In 1922, the University, such
as it was, was housed in a collection of ramshackle buildings
on the grounds of the Vancouver
General Hospital in Fairview.
Point Grey had been chosen
for the permanent site of the
University as long previously as
1911, but the procrastinations of
the Provincial governments had
ensured that no start could be
made on the.... construction of
Delegations to Victoria  from
the student body met with no
success, and the students and
faculty decided to take matters
into their own hands.
By means of a door-to-door
canvas, and by stopping people
on the street, fifty-five thousand
signatures were added to a petition that was sent to Victoria.
Then after parading through
the down-town streets in their
jalopies, the students gathered
at the site of the present university    gates,    and    marching
three abreast, gathering rocks as
they went, they paraded to the
position of the present Cairn.
There they piled their rocks,
and formed a giant, human
U.B.C, to signify their determination to have their own university.
The provincial government
was so impressed with the action
of these early students, that it at
once implemented the legislation it had previously delayed,

Quarterly Journal
The first publication exclusively devoted to reviewing and
criticizing Canadian literature
will be published at UBC in
The quarterly journal will be
edited by George Woodcock,"an
assistant professor in the UBC
English department.

writing, as well as articles dealing with reassessment of past
writers and literary movements.
In addition, English, French,
and American critics will be
asked to review Canadian books
and discuss Canadian artists.
"We have no intention of promoting the kind of cultural nationalism which suggests that being Canadian is an initial virtue
on a piece of writing," Mr.
Woodcock said.
Entire issues of the magazine
Will be devoted to specific fields.
The first of these, to be published . next spring, will deal
with Canadian drama.
Sixteen student nurses received their caps in a ceremony
in St. Paul's Hospital auditorium
on Friday, Sept. 11.
The girls were the first students in the new training program offered by the U.B.C.
School of Nursing and their
"capping" marked the successful completion of the first year
of this program.
Before September, 1958, students took only a part of their
program at U.B.C. However,
under the new plan, the university is responsible for the entire
curriculum, including the teaching of nursing subjects, as well
as those in Arts and Science.
Nursing students will pay fees
to the university during the four
years of the course, but will receive much of their nursing experience in the wards of St.
Paul's Hospital.
