A Messa
To The
Graduates Of 1963
The Government of this Province, as the representatives of the people of
British Columbia, is pleased to utilize this opportunity to extend its congratulations to the graduating class of 1963.
During the past years, many of the former graduates of the University
of British Columbia have made outstanding contributions to the economic
development and to the cultural enrichment of the life of the Province.
Several of them have even achieved world-wide acclaim for their contributions in the fields of science, art and technology.
The Government of British Columbia fully realizes that, among all the
vast resources of the Province, the most potentially valuable is the highly
skilled person. During the past few years, many magnificent buildings
have been constructed, many new facilities have been established, and
many world-renowned professors have been added to the staff of the University of British Columbia. It is the hope of the Government that the
members of the graduating class of 1963 have been able to benefit from
these improved opportunities and that, as graduatees of the University of
British Columbia, they will proceed to do their part in adding to the already
illustrious name of their Alma Mater.
Again, on behalf of the people of British Columbia, the Government
compliments the graduating class of 1963 and wishes each member complete satisfaction and success in all future endeavours.

at Fire Prevention Week, the
Chief sent his men down to ask
Fort Camr-ers for a list of

the UBC area's cubs and
scouts taking them camping
on the Endowment Lands
during weekends and holidays.
He enjoyed working in his
fire hall, next door to the
Engineering building, just, to
absorb the campus atmosphere.
He had to tangle with
pranksters only once in a 14-
year-career  at UBC.
An anti-Buster's demonstration—1,500 students strong—

tiny fire ri? instesd of Buster's because gasoline had
been spilled  on  the road.
The crowd, captivated bv
the ancient rig, let the air out
of the tires and hid the ignition keys.
Foran was mad. It was
dangerous to put the atea's

covered land of hooks and professors.
You have supposedly acquired what for

fellow men have not — the golden gift of
Or maybe all you have is a degree.
But whatever it is you now have, it is a

You've accepted your sheepskin, fraudulently'or otherwise, but you have also accepted
the responsibilities inherent in those initials
you carry after your name.
7.:       Before you trip off into the sunset, you

7 ,7-7     -Kopefully, you-are  the person Dr. John
7 7; Macdonald was thinking of earlier this month
. ; 7^Keii he declared that there is a new temper
'in his students.
"They have a passion," he said. "They
reject the status quo. They are willing to take
risks, to stand up and be counted. They are
willing to test themselves and their moral
Strength against the world."
- The issues of tbTe day encourage taking
sides, the moral issue of freedom for the
colored races, the moral issue of peace against
war, he said. x
But we suspect that most graduates don't
fit the rosy picture Dr. Maedonald painted of
As students, you were usually apathetic,
unimaginative, and cynical.
But there were those odd moments. Like
when 5,000 students showed up at a ban-the-
bomb rally not because they necessarily agreed
with the speakers but because they were
genuinely concerned with a substantial international problem.
They supported their hockey team vociferously, and with some good, clean college spirit
that's been so sadly lacking here.
And there was Action Week, when students display their independence, industry,
and ingenuity better than • they ever had
We hope these moments represent the real
UBC student showing through. We hope those
students who receive their degrees today afe
the kind Dr. Macdonald was talking about.
Have a nice trip into the sunset, grads.
But on your way, think a bit about your
place out there in the golden glow of the
future. The reception you get may be a little
bit warmer.
Them God damned university kids!
When you are'old and grey, or middle-
aged and greying, take the time occasionally to dust off the old diploma and read it
Maybe it will make you swoon with
nostalgic visions of your carefree college
days, and perhaps allow you to remember
what you were like back there in virtuous
1963; j
Wfe have a sneaky: suspicion that the
mere jpassage of time out there in the cruel
worlctdoesn't really make you more mellow,
or more mature, or more civilized.
We suspect the only thing you do out
there is slowly grow more intolerant, more
cynical, more senile.
Who is it leading the, segregation fight in
the deep south? It's the alumni pf those
great institutions. It's those people from the
adult world. How can they be so ignorant of
the basic rights and freedoms they say they
stand for?
Who is it calling us students atheists,
communists, and sexual- deviates, when all
we are doing is earnestly and openly discussing intellectually the questions of the
day? Right. It's those people who've been
in this world for 40 hard years, sonny.
Have you e*ver heard of a young fogey?
Who makes the rules that won't allow us
into the pubs until we're 21, and who tells
us we must pay taxes, but won't let us vote?
Right again. It's them.
Who provided the most difficult opposition during our fight for higher education?
You know who. It was those people out there
who already had their degrees. The school
principals who wouldn't let us ask their
staffs for signatures. The members of the
Board of Governors who Wouldn't tell us
And those silly old ladies who think
we're frittering away the taxpayers' money
just because we smash up an old car with
a sledgehammer1 once in a while, or because
we bemoan the: ipassing of The Georgia.
TLet's hope we don't end up like them.
When university students ask for summer
jobs, we'll try to fit them in.
When students in 1980 complain about
large classes, fee increases, and distant parking lots, we'll think how hard;it was for
us to hear the prof from the back row of
Buchanan 106,
And it they ask us for some; money, we
might even give them some of that, too.
So Jong/ you atheistic Commies
Good bye grads, and good riddance.
We can only hope the world will do more
for you "than this, university was able to.
For after livirig'with you for four years we
know what you are really like.
T'he girls are mainly interested in sex. They
are sloppy dressers.

to prepare you to meet it.
Never lose confidence in your
ability to do so, or permit intolerance to distort your purpose.
Of course, life should nave
its gaiety, and graduation is
a time of festivity, as indeed
it should be. Yet there is always a tinge of sadness in it
for members of the faculty.
We know - that you . will

you will bring credit to the
University whose degree you
hold, as others have done before you.
Our University, along with
others throughout the world,
is facing some very difficult
problems. Such problems are
unlikely to become less critical in the future. You have
done your part to help, and
now your continuing support
will be needed to ensure that
those who come after you may
enjoy the educational advantages that have been yours.

Traditionally, a President is
always pleased to see students
But I feel a real sense of
personal loss as the 1963 graduating class moves off the
campus. It has been my first
year at UBC and I count high
among the satisfactions I have
had, the privilege of getting to
know many of you well.
Many of you have worked
diligently and enthusiastically
in bringing before the people
of British Columbia the urgency of developing higher education. In an orderly and
exemplary way, you circulated
a petition calling for support
for our university to 250,000
citizens, and for this I shall
always be grateful. I was
proud of you for the lesson in
good citizenship implicit in
what you did and the way you
did it.
Do not forget us wherever
you settle. Remember that we
rely on your expanding interest and support as we seek to
challenge fresh generations of
young people. You graduate
as very different individuals
than you were on entering this
University. Our good wishes
accompany you as you begin
life on your own.
Finally, let me say that I
hope your university experience has opened doors to a
wonderful life ahead, a life of
continued learning and of service to society.

VC head honored
'Responsibility to community'
Congratulations u,*v>n yo.ur
graduation and welcome to the
growing ranks of UBC alumni.
During your undergraduate
years it is expected that you
will have developed a sense of
community responsibility, a
realization that education particularly higher education, is
not an end unto itself but a
means of achieving self-fulfillment.
Recognition of community
responsibility begins with an
awareness that our University
is a great University because
graduates going before you
took up the challenge to maintain standards at UBC.
At this time our University
needs help from its alumni
more than it has for many
years.   It needs helo from new
. not end in itself
graduates, from freshmen alumni, for from your ranks will
come fresh ideas and new
leaders will emerge to cope
with the needs of the University.
The Alumni Association is a
dynamic organization changing
its program from year to year
to best serve the needs of UBC.
The Board of Management
of the Alumni Association
hopes that you will remember
the advantages of an education
at UBC and return to work
and support the Alumni Association to ensure that others
behind you will have equivalent opportunity.
Alumni President

This is the chronicle of a year: a chronicle
made up of the trivia of the year 1962-63.
To us, these trivia are important because
the moments were ours—they belong to the
graduating class of 1963. Such possession of
moments makes even a collection of trivia
worthy of being called a history. Let me show
you my collection:
The year got off to an unfortunate start.
UBC's Cinderella rowers were defeated at the
world championships in Switzerland and, having sustained this body blow to the ego, students returned to the campus to face, for the
first time, a $5 fee to park in the far-out student lots. It was hitting below the belt, but
Buster's was gone and perhaps it was worth it.
In addition, the Alma Mater Society's grey
flannel admen had moved the university a step
closer to conformity by dropping the time-honored name Bird Calls in favor of the colorless
Student Telephone Directory. It was a kick in
the teeth.
Toward the end of the year, however, student council—in a rare display of good sense
—ordered the admen to change it back.
As the era of rowing supremacy ended —■
temporarily—there came promises of a new era
of academic excellence, made by Dr. John Macdonald as he was sworn in as president.
There was room for new beginnings at
UBC. The Ubyssey showed students that there
was a Little Rock on the university's doorstep,
"Point Grey Doors Slam on Negro Students,"
it shouted in its biggest, blackest type.
The articles caused some stir—and discrimination continued as before.
Students were shocked again when the paper revealed that most student suites in Point
Grey were substandard, cold and dirty. Especially surprised were those who lived in rooms
which were standard, warm and clean.
But this was something student bureaucrats
could understand; they set up an inspection service.
Then came Kaneung Watanchai. Hundreds
of students who had avoided the needle for
years were scratched in a mass vaccination campaign when doctors thought that the graduate
commerce student from Bangkok had smallpox.
The campus—and the city—waited anxiously for six days before word came from Ottawa that his rash was only a rare and non-contagious skin disease.
The sinking of C-lot was a prelude to Hurricane Freida. She turned out campus lights
and did $5,000 damage.
But the really big blow came on October
17. It was black Wednesday. The Georgia
went dry. It was the end of another era; and
300 Friends of the Georgia took to the streets
to burn Liquor Control Board chairman Donald
McGugan in effigy for desecrating tradition.
The real Col. McGugan lived to strike
again. Students moved to other pubs but it
wasn't the same. And the town's newsmen,
quick to spot a good thing, moved into the
The following week, students had something new to think about: the hero of PT-109
told his Russian playmate to get his darn rockets out of the Kennedy backyard—or else.
It was the "or else" that worried students
—and more than 5,000 jammed the Main Mall
to hear five professors denounce war as a solution to such problems. The crowd was a few
hundred smaller than the one that turned out
the year before to see Homer Tomlinson crown
himself King of the World.
Only this time, the jokes were a bit sicker
and the laughs a bit higher pitched.
A sign in Brock proclaimed: "Coming
Soon: World War Three—A Cast of Billions
—See, Hear, Participate."    But it didn't come.
This also happened before Christmas exams: research chemist Neil Bartlett rewrote
chemistry texts by producing a useless orange
powder from a reaction involving an inert gas
—and was later injured when his ungrateful
apparatus exploded; Dr. Norman MacKenzie
was named Great Trekker and received a standing ovation from 3,000 students; the first Homecoming parade in five years wound its way
through city streets to mark the fortieth anniversary of the first great trek; students finally
got to vote in the Point Grey byelection and
neurology professor Pat McGeer became UBC's
own MLA; Dr. Peter ("I don't believe in God")
Remnant: shocked downtown sensibilities when
his biennial debunking of religion somehow
attracted a Sun reporter; Prof. Avrum Stroll
debunked the Jesus of the Gospels and The
Ubyssey's Peter Rembrant debunked Santa
Sir Ouvry's Own Regiment heralded the
start of the new year by showing up in jaunty
new khaki uniforms.
And The Ubyssey crowed that it was the
best university newspaper in Canada. In an
unprecedented sweep, it won trophies for general excellence, editorial writing and news photography in the annual Canadian University
Press competition.
In the next few weeks, Big Fanny Storgoff
and her Sons visited the campus to explain
their problems and remained just as puzzling
ss the French Canadians; Victoria College was
given a pat on the head by the Premier and
made a university; and the campaign for a campus ambulance was renewed after two students
lay bleeding for forty minutes in an overturn
car on Marine Drive, waiting for an ambulance
from the city.
Also, the vote-In-a-lump Calathumps and
Mike Sharzer's armbanded NaziCreds got
thumped in campus elections. Sharzer was an
unlikely Nazi anyway.
Then Dr. Macdonald dropped his higher
education blockbuster. His report called for
eight new colleges in B.C. and an eventual
operating budget of $100 million.
The government made a few promises and
a start on Simon Fraser University—but kept
its hand firmly on its -wallet.
In the next few days, as campus rebels
worked overtime in dark cellars planning action week, Mayor Beth Wood of New Westminster denounced the teaching of Communism and
atheism at UBC and was mostly ignored; the
hockey team topped the football team by winning the Hamber Cup and the western championship (the basketball team also won but the
footballers tied with Alberta for best in the
west); and Premier Bennett was accused of stabbing the university in the back with his budget
paring knife. He sliced off $1.6 million wo
of skin.
In what was apparently a diversionary move,
the Reverend Phil Gaglardi challenged Dr.
Remnant to a debate on the existence of God.
The university community refused to be diverted — and the government went further, bringing in legislation to implement the Macdonald
At the same time, the Board of Governors
rejected requests that it reveal UBC's exact
financial plight. And the rebels continued to
work in the dark.
Late in the term, it was discovered that
Sir Ouvry's shambulance was too small to
carry a stretcher and couldn't get a licence.
To forestall a gory fiasco, the Graduating Class
of 1963 made its gift an ambulance which the
administration characteristically refused to
accept; the rowers ended the year happily by
winning in the Pan American Games at Sao
The year was over. The usual activities
of a year at UBC—registration, Homecoming,
the conferences, the dramatic and musical productions (Bye Bye Birdie was a smash hit), the
Mardi Gras, blood drives, faculty activities and
so on—had taken place more or less on schedule.
And a few things had happened to make the
year unique.

Love those atoms
Medal winner
was just curious
Curiosity won Dennis Healey the Governor-General's Gold
"I do nuclear physics just for
the love of it — to satisfy my
curiosity,'' said the man who
averaged 89.7 per cent for five
physics and four math exams,
the best in the graduating class.
"I don't consider it work. It's
an avocation."
When he graduated third in
the province from Abbotsford
high school, he didn't know
what he wanted to do.
"You don't get much indication what physics is like from
high school courses,'' he said.
Now his life revolves around
"I like square dancing and
swimming, but they take a back
seat to my work," he said.
When The Ubyssey told him
he had won the Governor Gene
ral's Medal, his only comment
was: "Good grief."
But winning scholarships and
prizes isn't anything new for
Dennis Healey.
He has won Vancouver Sun
scholarships, an Aluminum Company of Canada award, government "money for marks" scholarships and now is working at
UBC on a National Research
Council grant.
Healey will study for his MA
in nuclear physics at UBC and
then his Ph.D.. but he doesn't
know where.
After that Healey doesn't
know what he'll do.
But one thing is sure; whatever-he does it will be close to

Money troubles
Grads of '63 end
on familiar note
For the graduating class of 1963 the sum of $2.2 million is
a familiar figure—too familiar.
And $100 rings a bell, too.
In 1959, UBC asked the government for a $2.2 million
increase in its operating budget.
The government gave only
$650,000; the fees went up $100.
Again in 1963, UBC asked the
government for an extra $2.2
million. The government pared
again and UBC got $1 million.
The graduates of 1963 who
absorbed the fee increase four
years ago will be spared the
$100 fee hike which threatens
next year's freshmen.
But they can sympathize with
Incensed by government failure to come through with cash

"on to Victoria."
More than 2.500 of them
marched to the Cairn and
draped it in black.

The pomp and ceremony of
the congregation must make one
concession to womanhood.
Traditionally, as each graduate kneels in front of the
.chancellor to receive his degree, the chancellor tans him

But UBC has Mrs. Phyllis
Ross for chancellor, and the
raising and lowering of the cap
over 1000 times would muss
her hair.
So she has two caps, one
which stays firmlv pinned to
her hair and another she uses
for tapping.
But the ceremony loses none
of. its significance.
"It's a very impressive ceremony," says Dean F. H. Soward,
who has attended more congregations than anyone else at
"Even though we have over
1,500 graduating we try to
honor rv_rsonally each student,
so he and his parents may feel
it is their own proud moment."
The ceremony begins with
the graduates in their new caps

They are followed by the
faculty, the senate, the Board
of Governors  and the Deans.
Last come the president,

Then came 1963 and UBC was
shafted by Bennett again. ,
The campus erupted and for
one hectic week., appropriately
called "Action Week", students
begged and badgered peor.'e
into signing petitions urging the
government to send money.
The Board of Governors stayed silent while students mapped
plans for UBC's largest demonstration.

At the end more than 227,000
citizens had signed the petitions

more heart-breaking.

Thursday, May  30,   1963
As I gaze deeply into my
jaek Wasserman crystal ball,
the wonderful world of tomorrow comes out in sharp focus.
There, surrounded by a
thousand acres of natural
parking lot lies our University. Only a memory now is
the Action of 1963 and it is
obvious many improvements
tre still lacking. Owing to a
sudden swing toward religious
free love (birth control was
.prohibited), the population exploded with such violence that
UBC's expansion couldn't be
stopped, even by the Socred
Cow. This esteemed animal,
which had been chewing the
Macdonald Report in its cud
for almost two decades, mooed
helplessly in anger when 70,-
000 students demonstrated in
1982. Lead by professional radicals, Bryan Belfont and Dietrich Luth, the demonstration
effectively convinced people
that the students were not asleep.
But it wasn't until 1990
that true expansion took place.
A mass march by the university population, now close to
150,000, got out of control and
destroyed every building from
Blanca to Macdonald. Finally
the campus could breath and
if I'm not mistaken, I see there
now is a move afoot to annex
what  remains of Vancouver.
The legal aspects of this action are being handled by the
firm of Merrifield, Stewart and
Swan. Barb   Bennett!,   one  of
the firm's top secretaries, oops
into the crystal ball to say that
some resistance has been raised by Jim Ward (who apparently suffered a twang of reactionary conscience soon after
1963's Action) and Frank Millerd, the pair having started
a large agricultural concern in
what was left of the city. They
have enlisted the help of pub
.  .   .class prophet
lishing magnate Fred Fletcher
whose Vancouver newspaper,
The World, has forced both the
Sun and Province out of business.
Fletcher's biting editorials
have caused engineers John
Montgomery   and  Ron  Parker
to redouble their consulting
and once more to don their
red shirts of battle. The Anti-
Expansionists also have legal
aid, in the firm of Leask,
Leask and Leask. Senior partner Peter Leask has indicated
his willingness to act as returning officer if the trouble
should lead to an election.
The crystal bail still doesn't
show why sc- many of UBC's
loyal grads are fighting against the attempts of their Alma
Mater to gain control of Vancouver. But wait a minute.
Here, in a red Irish haze,
comes veteran social worker
Mary-Lee Magee who has been
studying the underlaying reasons of this conflict.
It seems that back around
1975, Brian ScFrfe, who had
Rhoded to England for a visit,
returned and sowed the seeds
of discontent in Vancouver.
He talked to Peter Baxter and
and the pair, agreed that the
present system at UBC was
unsatisfactory and shouldn't be
eneouraged to .'. spread. They
took their case to Mike Shar^
zer and convinced him of their
point of view. Sharzer immediately revived his Nazicreds
and the battle was on. It began to assume international
proportions when Cliff Garrard brought in a battalion of
African pygmies on the side of
the Expansionists. Dave Gibbons, immediately stepped into
the   fray   and  insisted   an  im
partial body with representatives from both camps be set
and if necessary, a police force
from the ranks of this body be
formed to keep order.
Beauty has helped to brighten up the conflict and is
equally divided between the
two forces. Lynn Gaibraith, in
addition to her job of boosting
morale, is indoctrinating her
pupils with Anti-Expansionist
doctrine, while Linda 7G"bsoh,7
who has come home to campus
once again, stands ready to apply all her nursing skill to any
victims should violence enter
the dispute.
It is interesting to see what
a vital part members of the
1963 grad class have been
playing in this conflict. Of
course not all the _rads are so
deeply concerned with the
Jolyon Hallows has become
principal of a unique experimental school for precocious

Today each of us is to receive a document which signifies the attainment of an ambition. For this we have struggled and worried and I am certain that many of us will marvel at the fact that we have
succeeded in our efforts. Our
degrees symbolize, as well, a
turning point in our lives.
Today we must turn from
our scheduled academic careers and face the world and
all those who people it. Ahead
lies, however, more than the
challenge of work and day to
day life which most of us anticipate. We are face to face
with the challenge of living in
what is an unhappy world for
the majority of its inhabitants.
Fundamentally we will be
asked to make a choice between two paths in the years to
come. The choice lies between
turning into our own small existences or turning outward to
try to leave this world, in
some small way, a better place.
The opportunities to make this
decision will come graduaUv:
we can choose to watch TV,
we can stoop to help a troubled
boy, we can join the fun loving
fraternal organization and play
bridge, we can take time to
try   to   understand   the   other
half - the artist or the engineer,
we can drink, or we can take
an active interest in the politics that have such a great
influence on our country.
We can withdraw into our
families or pursue, with burning intent, our chosen fields.
Our choice lies in how we balance these activities in our
lives. . .
No one will argue that one's
outside interests should come
before home and family; and
there may be much merit in
shedding li_'ht on some medieval writings, or in building
a noise-free transistor amplifier. The family, however, becomes a perversion if it is completely withdrawn, as does the
individual. We have the responsibility of the educated
few. We must accept that
responsibilty or admit that
these past short years have
been  an utter  waste.
We must realize that the
into massive problems - of our
world is plunging hedalong
own creation. Medicine saves
countless lives daily and yet
refuses to accept its share of
the population problem. The
rapidly increasing imbalance
in capital and technical know-
how   provides   untold   wealth
for one nation while the children starve in another. We have
faith in our military and our
politicians and allow them to
control the means to utter
devastaton and yet are they
not men and women like ourselves. Are we infallible? Today's greatest need is for
mature aggressive minds - ed-
Teacher parlays year out
into top education marks
A year taken out teaching helped Wilma Henderson
win the biggest award of her life.
The 21-year-old future librarian won the Maxwell A.
Cameron Memorial medal and a $50 prize for top marks in
elementary education.
"I've had a few government scholarships and some
university bursaries before, but nothing big," she said. "Then
I took a year out teaching in Duncan last year and I think
that helped my marks."
...  valedictorian
ucated minds—because the
gravest problems we face are
no longer natural phenomena
but of our own design.
We, as individuals, must
first settle our values and if we
find that freedom, honour integrity and mankind in general are of any importance,
then we must try in some
small way to lever this world
back to sanity. Who are getting our degrees today are not
only living in a society that
provides political freedom but
we have the virtue of being
more highly educated, come
closer to economic freedom.
Thus we have the double res-
possibility of being not only
free but  also  able to provide
some of our time for the betterment of our society. If we
do not bear this responsibility
we lose our rights by default
and the world will not be a
better place because of us.
Some will think that the
task is too big and consequently
use this as an excuse for betraying their education. It is
a tremedous task, far more
than any one. of us could hope
to effect to any visible extent
but we must share. We can influence those who refuse to
think about the problems, we
can help to tear down untruths that only serve to confuse. We must, not be deterred
by institutionalized ruts and
prevailing thought. We must at
times be hard-hearted — when
justice, honour and truth are
threatened by a narrow-minded
few. We must not hesitate to
use pressure. Mature, educated
pressure is vastly superior to
the pressure of a rapid minority bent on some destructive act - be it intrusion into
our. individual responsibilities
by blue laws or. the destruction of integrity in government. If we sense a wrong our
pressure can be shown by
simply standing up and having
the guts to challenge the party
involved, be it the government
or an individual.
This, I believe has been the
intent of those who have valued education in the past. To
those on the staff who have
been true to the intent of education we owe a great debt
indeed. This debt can only be
satisfied by the acceptance of
the responsibilities which are
being handed to us today. Our
duties consist of trying just a
little more than we are compelled, to make this a better
place in which to live.
