Array  Message to the Graduates
of 1964
University of British Columbia
The Government of this Province, representing the people of British
Columbia, is pleased to utilize this opportunity to extend ifs congratulations to the 1964 graduating class of the University of British Columbia.
During the years that the members of this graduating class have
been on the campus, they have observed the progress that has been
made in the provision of new facilities to accommodate fhe ever-
increasing number of students at both undergraduate and graduate
leyels.
In providing increased financial support for the University of British
Columbia it is the hope of the Government that those who have graduated from this University will be able to provide leadership in the many
technological and professional fields that are developing throughout our
great Province. By providing such leadership graduates will use their developed capabilities not alone to obtain individual satisfaction and to
realize individual ambitions but also to contribute to the gratification of
society's needs and to improving opportunities for all those who live in
British Columbia.

Teaches till end
Dying prof finds
pain no barrier
Law professor Malcolm Maclntyre promised he would
not let down his students, and he was true to his word.
Maclntyre, professor of torts
at UBC,- had known he was
dying from cancer for several
months.
But he refused to give up
teaching: "The students are depending on me," he said, "I will
not let them down."
Toward the end of his life he
found it very difficult to carry
on, but he was never known to
complain though he was often
in great pain.
Doctors had told him he
should give up his work but he
refused. They said if he stopped
it would extend his life, but
again he refused.
James Maclntyre, a lecturer
in law at UBC, said his father
had loved his classes too much
to give them up.
"His whole life revolved
around his work," Maclntyre
said.
"He could not have given up
even if he had wanted to. He
knew he was going to die, and
he wouldn't stop teaching just
to put it off."
James Maclntyre says he will
continue in his father's footsteps.
"It's a good school here, and
there are memories," he said.
He said his father started
teaching at UBC in 1948 and
stayed there until he died this
April.   He was 59.
Members of the law faculty
acquainted with Maclntyre expressed unqualified admiration
for him.
Typical comments were:
"A wonderful man, one of
the foremost authorities on
torts in the country."
"His courage was an inspiration to all he came in contact
with/'
His students said:
"He did it, but it was really
pathetic to see him work his
life away for us, but somehow
he managed to finish the job he
started.
"Those of us that passed this
year owe a lot to Professor
Maclntyre."
But perhaps the tribute that
Professor Maclntyre would
have appreciated most came
from a fellow member of UBC's
law faculty, assistant professor
J. C. Smith: "He died doing
what he wanted to do, but how
he found the strength I don't
know—it was the most absolute
devotion I think I will ever
see."
AMS shells out
for rank amateur
The AMS has started to
hire amateurs as well as professionals.
Besides obtaining the services of a publications coordinator and an executive
secretary recently, student
council has approved retaining AMS President Roger
McAfee at a $400-per-month
salary for the summer.
"I think the policy of
hiring the president to work
during the summer will end
the tradition of his having to
take a year off from studies
to be able to conduct all student business properly," said
McAfee.
"The president can prepare his year's program during the summer and have it
ready for council at the beginning of the year.
"I'm spending an average
of 12-13 hours a day on the
job, including evening meetings and business dinners."
SUB grows
from gleam
to reality
The student union building goes onto the drawing
boards this month after a four year struggle during which
the '64 grads have watched SUB grow from a gleam in Dean
Feltham's eye to a full-fledged and fully financed building.
Over   90  architects  should

architects should
submit first stage plans by the
July deadline, making this the
largest competition in North
America for student unions,"
says planning committee head
Dean Feltham.
These preliminary designs
will be narrowed down to four,
with selected entrants receiving a prize of $2,500 each and
competing with expanded plans
in the final.
An award of $3,000 plus
costs is at stake.
Deadline for entries in the
final stage of the competition
will be sometime in October,
with the Board of Assessors'
decision expected before the
end of that month.
Making up the board are W.
W. Wurster, San Francisco:
Professor Henry Elder, UBC;
Guy Desbarats, Montreal; and
James Murray, Toronto, with
Feltham and Warnett Kennedy
of Vancouver as non-voting
advisors.
"The grad class's gift of a
fountain for the SUB has been
taken into consideration in the
architectural plans, at an expected cost of $8,000," said
Feltham.
"Any deficiency between
this and the graduates' contribution will be made up by the
Alma Mater Society.
"We have not received a
cheque to date from the class,"
he •added.

Incredible wagon   retired
Shambulance ambles out in class
By MIKE VAUX
UBC's venerable traffic
patrol wagon - come - shambulance has graduated with this
year's convocation.
The wagon, a 1957 Chev
which has been in a state of
rapid deterioration for the
last seven years, is being
traded in on a new one.
And, according to traffic
patrol head Cece Paul, it is
good riddance.
''We drove the old bus about
70,000 miles over the years,"
he said. "And most of those
miles were in low gear at
under 20 miles-an-hour.
"It is incredible that it even
lasted this long."
Paul said the new wagon
would be a 1964 Chev station

equipment and a stretcher.
"It will be much better all
around," he said. "The old one
wouldn't even hold a stretcher
properly.
"Our men are trained in
first aid, and this new car will
serve a vital function at
UBC."
Other traffic patrolmen
agree with Paul.
"The damned thing has
been around so long it has
become an institution," said
one patrolman. "It was the
butt of all kinds of student

Ivy and UBC
It's a little hard to be reminiscent about UBC. We'd
love to spill some purple prose about the ivy-covered
walls, the past glories, and the days when we defeated
traditional Yurtsford at rounders.
But we don't have much ivy. What there is has been
carefully cultivated to hold up some of our shakier
shacks. And we haven't been around long enough to have
any rivals of the "drink-up-and-remember-the-good-old-
days" variety.
So with UBC's lack of real tradition you may be
wondering why all the medieval ceremony, as your flat
hat, tassel and bulky gowns combine to make graduation
thoroughly uncomfortable. You may also be a little
miffed to discover your part of the ceremony takes about
as long as it does to swat a fly. You may also be concerned that you are only one out of some 1,900 students
graduating this year.
It would seem a good time to ask yourself just what
you've gained. Four years have taught the majority of
graduates a slice of science, a pithy bit of information
about ancient philosophy and the full realization that life
after university is going to be very different. A few
others have been taught such highly specialized subjects
as to have become super-departmentalized. They become
so departmentalized as to be unable to talk to anyone but
other super-departmentalized souls. And they probably
won't have to if they continue at universities for the
rest of their lives.
For the majority, though, "all the courses in
(philosophy) (electronics) (English) will be wasted. In
future years at cocktail parties they will recall the names
of the odd author or concept, briefly pull it out, and
then shove it away after whoever they were talking to
has failed to see its significance.
After university most. companies seem to think a
graduate needs to be retrained. He has to be. Much of
the material he's learned isn't much good. And as the
bright-eyed graduate enters the accounting office for the
first day they tell him to forget what he's learned and
start learning about double accounting and income taxation loopholes.
And suddenly he realizes he isn't in university any
more. And a little later some department head tells him
to do something and when he's finished there isn't a
mark for the effort, just another job. And the student
suddenly realizes people are treating him as if he was
capable of handling the odd responsible job. He's not just
a feckless - wreckless student. He becomes a citizen —
something the university hardly trains him to be.
'Bye shambulance
It is with deep regret we note the graduation of the
university's famed shambulance. Like all good grads the
combination traffic car and ambulance has been set out
to pasture—in the harsh surroundings of a junk yard.
And this is where most students thought the
machine should have been in the first place when it
appeared on the campus two years ago. Mostly it got in
the way, ticketing cars and generally adding confusion.
The ambulance function it was supposed to serve
was always a bit of a laugh. It had an ill-equipped first
aid box and was too short for a stretcher to fit in.
Still it was a part of the university. It did many good
things. Sometimes even it helped students when they
were stuck in the depths of C-lot late at night and it did
bart the odd injured student to Wesbrook hospital, even
if he did have to stand.
And without the shambulance UBC lost another
little bit of its character. We hope the new one that
replaces it isn't too efficient and well-painted. We hope
it doesn't look like an ambulance or a traffic patrol car
any more than our old shambulance did.
"B. C." Gets To College!
Get rid of dirt, grime
and grads in a minute
By MIKE HUNTER, BA '63
Groping throught the dust
that has accumulated on our
news desk since we buried the
last volume of Ubysseys, we
came upon a press handout
marked For Immediate Release, from, of all people,
Proctor and Gamble. It contained word that another
UBC graduate has made his
mark in this world, which we
of course were very glad to
hear.
It seems one Clifton W.
Healey, B. Comm. 1960, has
been promoted in P&G's advertising department—to the
group responsible for consumer marketing of Mr.
Clean, the man who gets rid
of dirt and grime and grease
in just a minute.
Mr. Healey, we are informed, will assist in planning
advertising and sales promotion campaigns for the product, and in co-ordinating
market research, product research, budgeting and packaging  activities.
•    •    •
This being graduation time,
when everything is rosy and
glowing and hallowed, it
came as a bit of a shock to us
to discover what subversive
things UBC grads actually do
after they get out of here.
We have always been suspicious of commercemen, them
and their thin ties and olive
corduroy jackets, and those
super-confident little grins
wiped all over their faces.
Well, now we know it's all
true.
When commercemen graduate, they run gleefully onto
Madison Avenue and begin
writing those excruciating
soap commercials. Terrorizing
our youth. Driving us to tranquilizers (Benz-E-Pep, with
ZX-3), teasing our ids, playing
on our neuroticisms, exploiting our secret desires, and
generally interrupting our
Prime Time bliss.
Healey, where's your sense
of loyalty to Alma Mater? To
think we have to listen to
singing commercials composed, planned, co-ordinated, researched, budgeted, and packaged by a UBC grad!
Why didn't you want to be
a    nuclear   physicist,   or   an
engineer,   or   an   aggie,   like
other red-blooded students?
But wait a minute.
What's so good about
THEM?
After all, it's those nuclear
physicists who made The
Bomb, that curse which is
next only to singing soap commercials as a threat to our
search for peace and contentment.
• •    •
It's the aggies who put the
weed killer in our milk and
butter; it's the engineers who
build those eyesore apartment
slums; the architects and
the planners who design the
traffic-jammed roads; the lawyers who snarl everything
with red tape.
All those grads of the other
faculties — they're no better
than that thin-tied terror behind the soap bubbles.
And to* think you're going
to join them. Migawd. You're
all out to get us.
You know, the more we
think about it, the more we
begin to agree with a spiteful,
black-haired demon we once
worked for. What was it he
said?
"If there's one thing this
world can't stand, it's a bunch
of goddam university kids."
• •    •
Well, there you are, all unavoidably capped and gowned. Emblazoned with the stigma of knowledge.
Go forth, and pursue your
despicable purpose.
But have mercy on the rest
of us, eh?

his last
By RICHARD SIMEON BA '64
So long, UBC, it's been
good to know you.
And as we say goodlbye,
we have some parting wishes
for you.
To General Sir Ouvry Roberts, Director of Traffic: may
the traffic ever flow smoothly, the parking meters pay
handsomely, and your army
ever be victorious.
To Miss Ruth Blair, head
of food services: let the hamburgers ever be drier and let
none ever be able to say they
got ptomaine poisoning from
the food YOU cooked.
To AMS president Roger
McAfee: may you get those
things done which ought to be
done on time, and may you
not do those things which
ought not to be done, so help
you, Scott. May you continue
to bark loudly and wave
your very little stick.
• •    •
To    Basil    Stuart - Siubbs,
chief librarian: may you ever
get books, but never be booked, may you drink happily,
but never get bombed.
To Dean Feltham, chairman
of the Student Union Building
planning committee: may your
grandchildren one day have
the thrill pf resting on a cot
in the "quiet room" of a
multi-million dollar SUB.
To SFA president Pat Mc-
Taggarl-Cowan and Chancellor Gordon Shrum: We wish
you continued good hunting
for bright young professors at
UBC to staff your aerie entity
atop the mountain.
To soap-box orator Dietrich
Luth: May you carry your
box wherever you go—it will
make nice firewood.
To AMS vice-president Jim
Ward: Please don't pull any
more fast ones on us; you
might waste away.
To the Board of Governors:
May your lips, in the interests
of public order, ever  be  sealed. May you never let the students disturb your quiet rest.
To UBC president John B.
Macdonald: May the Premier
be nice to you, the students
be nice to you, SFA be nice
to you, the board of governors
be nice to you and the faculty
be nice to you. May you get
your graduate school, and
may you see the day when
your university really is the
Harvard of the West Coast.
To the faculty: may the
wages go up, the work load
go down, and may you all
publish definitive works in
your own fields. May students
never interfere with your
real  work.
• •    •
' And finally to the Students:
May you have a covered
walkway in from C-lot, clear
set used to teach you sociology, an honest student government, a federal government scholarship plan, a
united CUS, fewer assignments and more time for creative work on your own, fees
you can pay out of one summer's earnings, a student union
building, a pub on campus,
and an end to the RCMP

.  .  difficult role
McAfee*.
Grads will
need other
cheek
ROGER McAFEE
AMS President
A university graduate has
a very difficult role to play at
any time, but graduates of
this university will probably
be called upon to play an even
more difficult role in an even
more difficult period.
This province is currently
undergoing an educational
revolution.
Two new institutions of
higher learning have recently
come into being. The competition for loyalties and dollars
will be keener than ever, and
a full-scale war among the
three could very easily develop.
The people of the province
are being bombarded with
facts and figures about the
two youngest institutions and
it seems at times like UBC
has been completely written
off.
You are going to be badgered by critics who insist UBC
has reached the "stale" stage
and needs a little competition
to brighten it up. You are
going to be put upon by the
ignorant, demanding to know
why a university as big as
UBC should receive funds
when a poor, struggling institution like Simon Fraser really needs the money to get
going? Inanity will follow inanity.
You'll likely get pretty fed
up. You'll likely be tempted
to tell such types to drop off
the Lion's Gate Bridge. Or
else you'll spring to the defence of UBC, at the expense
of the other two institutions.
This must not happen, because if it does, if you put
UBC before the educational
needs of the province, you will
be doing yourself and this
university a great disservice.
As a university graduate,
one of your greatest responsibilities in the next few years
should be to convince the uninitiated of the value of higher education, regardless of
whether it is in Vancouver,
Burnaby or Victoria.
So when you are tempted to
defend UBC at the expense of
the others, remember that one
of the things this university
has tried to teach you is
tolerance.
Macdonald
Graduates

high seas
DR. JOHN MACDONALD
UBC  President
As the graduating class of
1964 prepares to leave the
campus I want to add my
word of congratulation to
those parents and close friends
who are elated, though not
surprised I am sure, at your
success.
Some of you will be setting out on well-charted seas.
Others will be entering upon
uncharted, stormy and precarious voyages in distant
parts of the world or of the
economy, or beyond the frontiers of scientific knowledge.
Still others will set sail on
the sea of matrimony.
To all of you I say good
luck. We hope that we have
given you the preparation
which you need in the years
ahead.
But do come back occasionally to re-charge your batteries. Become active members of your alumni association, the better to build sound
colleges and universities wherever you go.
The friendships and associations of your days here will
sustain you for the rest of
your lives, incredible though
this may seem to you now.
UBC looks to you as a group
to change the world for the
better. I wish you health and
strength in your endeavours.

Graduates honor librarian

The grad class honorary
vice president has been at
UBC as long as the cairn.
Next year only the ivy-
covered cairn will remain.
Miss Anne Smith, 65, retires
this year. And in recognition
of 44 years of service the class
of 1964 has elected her their
honorary  vice  president.
Miss Smith, now assistant
head librarian, started attend
ing classes in the old Fairview
shacks, site of the university
before the Great Trek of
1922. The cairn was built to
mark the trek to Point Grey.
Miss Smith went to the

Ted Chamberlin can add a Rhodes Scholarship to his
already impressive list of accomplishments.
Chamberlin, 20, UBC's
Rhodes winner for 1964, is a
grad in double honors Math
and English this year.
But studying is one of his
lesser accomplishments.
He plays tennis, rugby, cricket, and several musical instruments.
He is a profesional big-game
guide and hunter.
He leads canoe trips down
such rivers as the Columbia
and the Fraser.
And on top of all this, he
still finds time to be a loyal
frat boy (Zeta Psi).
A graduate of St. George's
school where he was head boy,
Chamberlain won the David
Spencer scholarship awarded
for topping the provincial high
school government exams.
Since entering university, he
has been awarded many additional   scholarships.
Chamberlain is organist at

Church during the academic
year, and spends his summers
as a canoeing instrctor at the

He has been in residence at

"Frankly, I don't know,"
she said, "and I don't think
anyone else does. I've been

that's about all.
"It's a great honor, though,"
she said.
Miss Smith is also head of
the library research division.
"I don't quite know why
they selected me for the position," Mjiss Smith said. "I
don't know too many students
of this generation.
"But I knew all their parents by name," she said.
Top grad returns
to beat system
The top science graduate at UBC believes he missed a
lot by concentrating on his honors math and physics program,
so he's coming back to study the arts.
20,
Andrew Stuart Glass
son of North Vancouver physician Dr. Leslie Glass, 4035 St.
Alban's, believes scientists
should be thoroughtly versed
in the arts.
So he's coming back to take
courses in languages and economics — and also math and
physics,  "to   keep in touch".
"Ideally, I would have liked
to take a five-year program,
the extra time being used for
arts,"  said  Andrew.
"But I found the only way
I could do it was to graduate
in science and come back."
He plans to spend only one
year in arts, returing to science
for a doctorate.
The head of the graduating
class in architecture thinks
he'll settle down into a job now
that he has a second degree.
Lawrence Redpath graduated in engineering at McGill
five years ago but decided architecture would be more interesting so he joined the
school at UBC.
He intends to work for a
Vancouver firm.
The top engineering graduate is planning three years of
research before returning to
the RCAF.
James Sutherland's successes at UBC have won him a
promotion to flying officer,
but he will take further studies
in control systems before accepting his commission.
Many of the top students
will be travelling afar, to take
jobs or more studies.
Head of the forestry class,
Bart van der Kamp, will study
in Aberdeen, Scotland, for
three years on a grant.
The leading medical grad is
off to intern in Montreal, although he said he is not bilingual:

Hazy days
passed by
'64 grads
Hey, whatever happened to
hazing?
The class of 1964 is the first
class to graduate without having been hazed.
The practice of harrassing
frosh was stopped by the AMS
in 1960.
The Ubyssey asked an old
pubster if he remembered the
good old days.
"Actually this is where the
dunking all began," he croaked.
"Frosh used to be told they
had to wear a frosh beanie,
sawed off blue jeans, a shirt
on backwards, and a sign called a frosh report card, a big
piece of cardboard looped
around their neck," the old-
timer recalled.
'Any upper classman could
check a frosh to make sure he
was wearing the correct dress.
If not, we'd chuck him in the
pond, or make him wash Brock
lounge floor with a toothbrush
The wheezing pubster collapsed over his typewriter in
a fit of laughter.

Tradition, a la $1.49 day
Shady paths - in 5 minute doses
By  DANNY  STOFFMAN
Are you a traditional-type
student?
The type that thinks he
needs four calm and thoughtful years to learn about the
world and about himself?
•    •    •
The type that has visions
of leisurely strolls amid tree-
lined campus walks?
Well, a beautifully-designed university is rising on Burnaby Mountain. But if you're
a traditional-type student, forget it.
"Not more than five minutes will be allowed between
classes,"   says   SFA  president

Patrick McTaggart - Cowan.
"That's all that's necessary."
"Simon Fraser will be a
year-round operation," says
chancellor Gordon Shrum.
"That way a student doesn't
have to waste time. He can
get out of here sooner."
Forget about that lovely
hilltop, traditional-type student. SFA won't be a musty
bookstore to browse in. It'll
be Woodward's on $1.49 Day.
SFA is speeding toward its
target opening date of September 1965.

Fat Scott
leaves
big hole
With the passing of
Malcolm Scott from the
campus, an era has come
to an end at UBC.
In the six years he has
been a man about this
campus, the cheery, chubby Scott has held five
elected  positions.
He's a member of the
men's honorary society
Sigma Tau Chi. He ha-
also received the hone
ary activity's award, the '
Alma Mater Society's
highest service award.
And he has received an
even greater distinction
"Malcolm can truly be
called a friend to everyone on campus," said
Dean Feltham, who ha?
worked with Scott in the
past two years as together they conceived, planned, and almost single-
handedly convinced the
student body of the need
for a student union building.
Scott appeared on UB^
in 1959, an emigree from
Victoria. The same year
he was operations mar
ager of the film society.
By 1960 he was treasurer
of that organization, his
first step up the ladder to
success.
He never looked back.
By 1963, already
twice treasurer of the
AMS, he reached the pinnacle of student government. He was elected
president of the society,
a $700,000 Organization,
that year.

VALEDICTORY
Into cruel world: purposefully?
By PETER SHEPARD
Du-ing the years we have
. en at UBC our lives have
nen channelled towards this
lay.   Many have gone before
us, working in the factory on
the same job and leaving with
the same box of tools which
•ve, ourselves, have now manufactured.
It is unfortunate but necessary that in today's age of
mass education, manufacture
of the required box of tools
necessitates   an   organization
resembling a factory production line. It is certainly no
one's fault, particularly not
that of the administration or
our professors.
With the number of students
increasing so rapidly, qualified professors and good facilities are now at a premium.
The result is an impersonal
education in which standards
must be met, exams passed,
essays written and laboratories
completed.
The   tools   manufactured
The wrong number was
the corrections one
If you're looking for SFA president Patrick McTaggart-
Cowan, try the department of corrections.
A Ubyssey reporter dialed the wrong number when
trying to reach the academy Tuesday, and asked for McTaggart-Cowan.
"He's not here," said a voice, sweetly.
"This is the department of corrections. Should he be
here?"
"Why don't you call back later," the voice cooed.
Athletics look ahead
Birds beam in
on the big time
By GEORGE REAMSBOTTOM
Ubyssey Sports Editor
One of the unhappier memories graduates will probably
have is how often UBC students were accused of apathy for
their lack of support for campus athletic events.
Attendance at varsity sports
attractions has been consistently poor.
But those who have cried
about poor attendance spent
too much time looking at
empty seats and not enough
time observing the quality of
the attractions.
TALENT MEDIOCRE
The real reason varsity sports
have few fans is the low calibre of the athletic talent.
Students will not accept a
mediocre standard of sports
from a major university. And
until the quality of athletics
parallels the size of the university, student support will not
be forthcoming.
Happily,  the  long   overdue
transition from a minor to major centre    of    college sports,
ppears to be underway at UBC.
Several top-quality coaches,
ncluding Lionel Pugh, one of
England's best in track and
field, will join UBC's department of Physical Education
next fall.
Committees   are   investigating ways to stretch the athletic
budget   and   provide   athletic
scholarships.
LEAVE  LEAGUE
Thunderbird teams have
withdrawn from the weak and
sprawling WCIAA in favor of
a two-year schedule against
much stronger American competition. Besides gaining better
competition, varsity sports will
save greatly in travel expenses.
In football, hockey and
basketball alone the saving
will be $10,000.
Other promising signs are
possible admission of the
Thunderbird team to the Pacific Coast Soccer League, and
probable  representation in
this   year's   Olympics   by  the
UBC rowing crews and grass
hockey team.
TWO PROBLEMS
However there are currently
two major problems.
The building of the new Student Union Building means a
new sports stadium will have
to be built and the funds for
it raised promptly since work
on the SUB will start this
coming year.
Also Thunderbird sports
now have much stronger competition than in past years, and
are desperately short of athletes because of severe restrictions on athletic scholarships.
But, thanks to Dr. Gordon
Shrum's |plans to offer athletic scholarships at SFA, resistance at UBC's upper levels
may soften.
STRETCH SUPLY
Meanwhile, Thund e r b i r d
coaches will have to stretch a
thin supply of talent even
thinner to attempt to complete
successfully with the tougher
competition.
S h r u m's much - publicized
plans to point up the need to
overhaul UBC's athletics to
make SFA a major sports centre.
UBC athletic officials are anticipating an intense rivalry
with the Burnaby campus and
look forward to a possible
league made up of UBC, SFA
and Victoria College.
Nuffield award
Dr. Philip V a s s a r, of the
faculty of medicine, has been
awarded a Nuffield Foundation
grant for cancer research al
London University College,
England.
from such an education are
the ones that will enable us
to get a job. The fact that we
have manufactured these tools
to the required specifications
is symbolized by the degrees
which we will receive this
afternoon.
There are, however, other
utensils which we must have
at our disposal. They have
not been manufactured on the
production line 'but have been
developed during our lunch
hours and many coffee breaks.
By entering into political,
religious, and sociological
discussions, by joining clubs,
by attending social functions
and, in general, by participating in the kaleidoscope of
activities varying from athletics to academic symposia,
we have acquired essential
tools wheh will enable us to
work with people and to help
solve the problems facing
society today.
• •    •
While at university our time
and effort have been devoted
to obtaining these tools. Our
lectures and laboratories took
up most of the day and we
studied at night. We worked
hard during the summer to
finance our education.
Our social life and extracurricular activities have been
a necessary psychological balance. Our prime objective has
too often been just a desire to
get a degree as a key to the
"affluent society".
At this time we realize that
we have only been "standing
like dwarfs on the shoulders
a giant" (Robert Burton). We
realize the factory has been
supplied by society and the
knowledge contributed by our
forefathers while we have
given relatively nothing except when the manufacture of
our own personal tools was at
stake.
• •    •
Now we have the basic
equipment. Now we must
make our contribution to
society. Because we have a
larger box of tools than non-
university graduates, our contribution must be that much
greater.
The tools which we manufactured on the production
line we shall use to earn a liv
ing. In our particular fields we
must apply ourselves unsparingly. We must strive for the
best technique, the most comprehensive theory, the best
work of art or the most efficient operation.
In order to contribute to
society we must build on the
ideas and principles we have
been taught. If we do not we
are merely using the tools in
a mediocre way, resulting in
a complacent and selfish
society.
• •   •
A more effective way to repay our debt is to expand and
use the "coffee break and
lunch hour" tools which we
devised by entering into extracurricular activities and participating in discussion. We
now have more time to develop and use these special
tools and we must take advantage of this opportunity.
We must turn our thoughts
to the social problems of our
time. We must evaluate the
decisions and policies of our
governments and ensure that
they are taking a responsible
approach. We must help dispell
hatred, untruths and narrow-
mindedness.
We must challenge the old
institutions and be cautious of
the new. We must take an
active interest in welfare
societies, youth organizations,
church groups and political
clubs. It is up to us to contribute to society by coming
forth with our ideas and participating in the issues of our
time.
• •   *
A university equips us only
with the essential tools. We
must continue to develop new
tools and to throw out those
which we find corroded. If
we do not, our effectiveness
in society will soon fade.
It is easy for me to stand
before this graduating class,
and on your behalf thank the
people who have made our
.education possible: to thank
our professors, our parents,
the taxpayers, and the administration. I believe, however,
that our true thanks and appreciation can best be shown
by all of us in the years to
come, by making the world a
better place in which to live.

SCOTT
(Continued from Page 7)
"I started my presidency
with the Back Mac campaign
and ended it with the SUB,"
Scott chuckled reflectively.
"My greatest achievement?
... I guess the winter sports
centre," he said. "That was one
of my pet projects."
"My greatest regret? . . . The
time my activities took away
from my academic work."
But he added that the number of offices he held was the
key to doing a successful job
later.
"Good qualities are not
enough," he said. "It's necessary to amass a background of
contacts too."
Scott, 26, said he has no immediate plans after he makes
up missing requirements for his
degree. He is currently working for a market research consultant.
Scott said he plans eventually
to attend a graduate school,
finances permitting.
He said he only weighs 230

Electrons beam on
future metallurgists
By CAROL ANN BAKER
The metallurgists at UBC
will be seeing things more
clearly this fall.
The department of metallurgy has a new electron microscope.
The microscope, made in
Japan, is the Hitachi model
11A.
It is worth $38,000 and financed by grants from the UBC
Board of Governors and the
National Research Council.
The new microscope uses
beams of electrons instead of
the beams of visible light used
in ordinary light microscopes.
Dr. Edward Teghtsoonian, associate professor of Metallurgy,
said that the wave lengths of
the electrons are many times
shorter than the wave lengths
of visible light making possible
a much higher degree of magnification.
UBC's new microscope will
have a magnifying power of
100,000 times. Ordinary light
microscopes have a magnifying
power of only 2,000 times.

GRADUATION EDITION DEAN F. H. SOWARD
. . . honorary degree
Soward
has dual
role today
Honorary president of the
grad class will receive an honorary degree at spring congregation today.
Dean F. H. Soward of graduate studies was elected honorary president of the class of
1964 in March.
Last month, the Board of
Governors announced that Soward, longest serving member
of UBC's faculty, would be
awarded an honorary doctorate
of laws today.
• *    •
An honorary doctorate of
science will also be given today to Dr. Arthur Kelly, general secretary of the Canadian
Medical Association.
Friday, honorary doctor of
science degrees will be conferred on Dr. Gerhard Herzberg,
director of physics for the National Research council, and on
Cecil Green, founder of a large
Dallas, Texas, instrument manufacturing company.
Dean Soward joined UBC's
faculty in 1922 and became
head of the history department
in 1953. In 1961, he succeeded
Dr. Gordon Shrum, now chancellor of the new Simon Fraser
Academy, as dean of graduate
studies.
Dean Soward will retire on
June 30 this year, but will continue to teach here.
• •    •
Dr. Kelly has ben secretary
of the Canadian Medical association since 1954. He also
plans to retire later this year.
German-born Dr. Herzberg
has been head of physics at the
National Research Council
since 1949. He has published
several papers on atomic structure.
Green, a student at UBC for
three years, later graduated
from Massachusetts Institute of
Technology in 1923. He started
a science school for boys in
Dallas, and helped create graduate study centres in Texas
and at MIT.

Vic College give
grads first degree
Victoria College's first convocation saw 168 graduates
receive their degrees this
week.
Chancellor J. B. Clerihue
presided at the ceremony Monday, first since Victoria College attained university status
in 1963.
Previously, degrees were
granted through UBC.
First honorary degree, a doctorate of laws, was conferred
on Jeffree Cunningham, former zoology professor at the
college.
Judge Clerihue was installed
as chancellor by Lieutenant-
Governor George Pearkes
prior to the convocation cero
mony.
"It is a wonderful experience
to see coming true the dream
of this institution becoming a
university," said Pearkes.
The chancellor told the convocation that facilities at the
university would be inadequate by September, 1965,
even if a public fund drive for
expansion of the Gordon Head
campus reached its $5 million
objective.
"To handle the expected
2,400 registration by 1965, two
$1.7 million buildings, one for
arts and education,    one    for
laboratories, social sciences,
and administration are needed," said Clerihue.
"But I doubt if we will get
the latter by 1966," he added.
More literature,

The old wagon could be

11 PROPHECY
Black looks into a brighter future for grads
By ANDREW BLACK
Every year, at this time, for
this special occasion a graduating student is asked to take
upon himself a task for which
he is ill-prepared. The prophet
of old was keen-eyed and always on the right spot at the
right time. He would have
found it much more difficult if
wearing spectacles and attending lectures. Its like asking a
campus mole to predict the
future. But after all, a mole
does emerge occasionally and,
no doubt, the meaning of some
Of the big reverberations coming from above must register
in his tiny brain.
So, unprepared and ill-qualified as I am, I would like to
offer some of my mole-like
ruminations and forecasts if
you will give me your attention.
•    •    •
Last year gave time enough
for students, educators and the
public alike to digest the MacDonald Report. It came as a
shock to most of us — a shake-
up from complacency. This
year, as expected, has seen the
influx of more and more students to UBC. We can see
that there is a very real limit
to the number of students this
university can educate. We are
approaching this limit rapidly.
But now, the Simon Fraser
University is a very real thing
— no longer an architect's
dream, no longer "Fearless
Tom's" Herculean task to find
it. (We now have, besides The
University of Victoria, municipal groups in the Okanagan
and the Fraser Valley especially planning for two-year colleges that will eventually become the universities of the
future.
•    •    •
Debate is bound to continue
as to whether the full year
operation of our universities
as against the present seven-
month system is best, that is,
best scholastically or economically. ,
Students meet new teachers
with stimulating ideas; they
find themselves in a different
environment, both demanding
and rewarding. This reduces
the danger that the student
might fall into a "rut" and the
danger of "inbreeding", both
undesirable tendencies, made
manifest when there is a lack
of choice  in universities.   In
fact, the wider the field in
which we receive our education, the greater is the understanding between the people of
the world. And this leads me
to my next prediction—with
this kind of improved communication will come the
likelihood of international
peace. But it makes fresh demands on us. It is not enough
to be able to boast that our
physics and chemistry departments are as well equipped as
any in North America. For
those we lose to other universities, we must attract others
and this means not only new
buildings and equipment, but
funds to provide for fellowships and assistantships for
students from the U.S. and,
indeed, from any other part
of the world. This is an absolute necessity.
•    •    •
During the past several
years that this graduating class
has been part of the university, there have been certain
changes. One that we all
noticed, not only the Agricultural students, (and obvious
even to the underground mole)
is the diminishing of the uni
versity farm area. Although
we have been clearing the afforested area of our endowment land, building sites and
parking lots have encroached
more rapidly on the farm acreage than anywhere olse.
• * •
While dealing with small
but important faculties, I feel
confident in predicting a revolution in the attitude toward
agriculture and agricultural
training, which will also certainly apply to the school of
Home Economics. The full
significance of the world's
hungry imbalance and the role
of research through food production and technology has yet
to be realised.
Man has reached a unique
revolutionary stage at which
time he has within his grasp,
weapons capable of destroying
his very breed. But I predict
that man will never deliberately use atomic power as an
instrument of war. These weapons have come from scientific
education. Also through education, and even more remarkably so, comes a total rejection
of the atom bomb. From these

"For the finest in biscuits
ask for Paulin Chambers" CLASS HISTORY
A quick, nostalgic glimse
at year that went too fast
By TOM SKUPA
THIS IS THE YEAR THAT WAS.  In the
year   1963-64   the   University  of  British
Columbia   made   news  of political   and
financial sorts and also in winter and bedroom
sports.
The year started early for the UBC-based
Olympic hockey team. The team lived in
shacks donated by the administration and
practised in the latest monument to student
autonomy, the Thunderbird winter sports centre. Their exhibition games provided some of
the best hockey the campus will ever see.
The National Federation of Canadian University Students changed its name to try and
stop the French-English rift but the Canadian
Union of Students by any other name would
smell as well.
As the term got underway, the new look
in styles was blue bowlers and birthday suits ,
and the new look in Food Service fare was
austerity program hamburgers and demi-tasse
coffee cups.
* * *
The New Freddy Wood Theatre, a welcome
cultural addition to any campus, was almost
outshone by an unwelcome cultural event on
most Canadian campuses, The Bitter Ash. The
premiere production in the theatre, Salad
Days, was a smash hit and did the beautiful
showplace proud.
The Engineers looked as if they were turning over a new leaf until they smashed their
new image along with the phoney statues that
they had placed around campus. Some art
lovers said that some of the "works of art"
were even worth keeping.
Professors in politics became a status symbol early in the fall. Everyone wanted to join
Pat McGreer in Victoria but only Ralph Loffmark made it.
Gordon Shrum's contribution to higher (on
top of Burnaby Mountain) education may
prove valuable in the future but to date it is
SFA.
* * *
Homecoming centered around the goal-post
incident where the bad guys (fratmen) took on
the good guys (Engineers?). The Great Trekker
award was presented to Ab Richards at the
annual noise fest known as the pep meet and
the Homecoming Queen title went to Frosh
Queen Musa Linke. Miss Linke made a hat
trick of beauty triumphs in January when she
was named queen of the Waterloo University
Winter Carnival.
Then came the fateful day, November 22,
1963. On that day students were voting on
whether they should build a $4 mllion Student
Union to go with the newly opened winter
sports centre.   Then came the tragic news of
John F. Kennedy's assassination. The university closed in respect for the passing of a great
statesman and students spent a long weekend
in front of televesion sets as the tragic story
unfolded. Voting on SUB continued the following Monday and the students approved a long-
needed campus addition.
Firebugs tried to burn down several campus
buildings but their attempt to forestall the inevitable Christmas exams was in vain.
* * »
The administration's Christmas present
came just after the second term started. "Fee
Hike $50" read the headline. But the student
body accepted this increased burden with stoic
restraint. Little more than one or two curses
were heard that Friday night at The Arms.
Father Bauer's boys put Canada back on
the map of international hockey in February.
Despite the heavy odds against them, both on
and off the ice, our boys never forgot their
manners and came home unscarred. That is,
if being maneuvered out of a second place
finish into fourth can be termed as coming
home unscarred.
The Canadian Union of Students came
back into the limelight when the president of
the organization came to campus to gain support for his policy of appeasement. Then the
fun started. The Ubyssey, Canada's finest
student newspaper for the third successive
year, was called every name in the book, from
treasonous to obscene, for a zoological reference to some of our Eastern "Canadien" compatriots.
* * *
However, the furor soon died down and the
campus began setting up the triennial circus
known as Open House. This year's spectacular
was bigger and 'better than ever. However, the
general public still is not too interested in
higher education, and attendance reflected this
state of affairs. Nevertheless, the show was a
big hit and one of the more successful.
Then came the biggest surprise package of
the decade. Our Sugar Daddy, commonly
known as the provincial government, came
through with UBC's requested monies for a
drastically-cut operating budget. But all was
not sweetness. Just to make us realize who is
and always will be boss, the capital grant was
cut appropriately.
For the class of '64, the last set of undergraduate exams we would ever have to write
were the next event on the social calendar.
And so, our last year at Alma Mater came to
an exhausting end.
What kind of a year was it? A year like
any other year, filled with those events and
dances we have come to expect as well as some
we did not expect; and you were there. That
was the year that was.
THOSE OTHER YEARS: The retreats at Elphinstone
remember the sneaky radar traps
and the bedpush for books
. . . and, dammitall, those Buster's trucks.
AND THEN there were Grank Gnup's gridders, up against their own goal line, usually.       GRADUATION EDITION

Ontario's new $70 million Trent
University idling along the footpaths under the trees beside
the Otonabee river, delightful
centre of the campus.
This is the scene suggested by
a description of the new university, released two weeks ago.
Observe:
"Buildings on the west bank
are planned close to the river,
in some cases arising out of the
river, whereas on the east bank
they are set back to allow a
landscaped parkland strip between themselves and the
water."
Trent University's "Master
Plan" allows for almost no
vehicles on campus, according
to the release. Hub of the campus will be an "academic
square" in front of the library.
First units of library, science
men, planted 315 Douglas Fir
seedlings at six-foot intervals
on the West Mall before they
graduated.
The plantation now contains
trees ranging from three to 14
inches in diameter and up to
70 feet high.
Of the 315 trees the classes
planted, 157 now exist. The
others have fallen prey to
parking lots and  natural loss.

15 Salaries
Faculty
plumps
for more
University faculty members
have barely pocketed raises
totalling $710,000, and already
they're putting pressure on the
administration for more raises
and a better system of salary
increments.
Faculty Association president Dr. John Norris said Monday pressure to increase salaries will be maintained constantly.
The Board of Governors in
April granted increases ranging
from $400 to $2,000 a year to
most faculty members, according to merit.
The faculty association had
previously demanded a $1,000
across-the-board increase. The
Board's increase was equivalent to an average of $813 a
faculty member.
Dr. Norris said the Board's
plan of merit increases woulr'
make for difficulty in attract-
ing new staff.
"We can't attract people if
we don't know what to offer
them," he said.
With the increased salary
floors and annual increments,
also proposed by the faculty
association in April, the university could guarantee a bel

. . . pediatrician
Prairie man
takes over
pediatrics
Dr. Sydney Israels, 49, of
Winnipeg, has been appointed
head of UBC's pediatrics department.
He succeeds Dr. Bruce Graham, who resigned to become
chief of staff at the Ohio State
Children's hospital.
Dr. Israels was educated at
the University of Saskatchewan where he received his BA
in 1936 and at the University of
Manitoba where he was awarded his medical degree in 1939.
On graduation from Manitoba he was awarded that University's gold medal in medicine and the Chown medal for
surgery.
He is married and has two
children.
The centre, a five-year project including a 410-bed hospital, will cost a total of $18.5
million.
Gifts from different levels of
government left UBC with one-
quarter of the sum to raise,
which was partially met by
various British and American
foundations and completed by
the Woodward grant.
•    •    •
Woodward's    grant    carried
the stipulation the contract for
the building be let by July 1
1966, to ensure the early open
ing of the centre.
Woodward earlier contributed all voluntary funds required for the centre's medical
library—academic heart of the
project, which will eventually
house the faculty and students
in all fields of health study.
