As One Of Canada's Management Accountants,
You'll Be A Valuable Asset To Any Management Team.
As a student earning your RIA designation, you're not being
overly optimistic by realizing that in a few short years, your
management accounting training can lead you onto the decision-making teams and into the boardrooms of business,
government or industry.
As one of Canada's Management Accountants, you'll find an
increasing number of positions open to you. With your broad
organizational knowledge and specialized financial abilities,
you'll be exceptionally well qualified and in demand to serve
as a consultant, systems analyst, controller,
treasurer, internal auditor and ultimately, a chief
executive officer.
It takes more than being a number cruncher to
earn your way onto the top management team. To
earn your RIA designation usually requires five
or six years of evening lectures or home study
combined with invaluable on-the-job experience.
Students who have completed the Accounting Technologist
Program offered by the Society, or who have completed
equivalent courses at the post-secondary level can earn their
RIA in as little as two years.
Today, over two-thirds of all jobs in the accounting field are
in the area of Management Accounting. A growing number
of employers are recognizing just how much they need RIAs
at their decision-making tables. Just a few RIAs who have
achieved recognition in the boardrooms of the nation include
Geoffrey Edge, Chairman of the National Energy
Board; Don Yeomans, Commissioner, Correctional
Services of Canada; George Bogdanow, Vice-
President and Treasurer of Great West Steel Industries Limited; Robert Stuart, Administration Manager-Controller for Business Telecom Equipment;
and Ken Keeping, Vice-President, Human Resources for Versatile Corporation.

THE UNIVERSITY IN
TRANSITION
By Anne Sharp
ON MARCH 7, 1985, Dr. K.
George Pedersen resigned as
President of the University of British
Columbia to accept the position of
President of the University of Western
Ontario. Pedersen said his resignation
was "a strong personal statement of
concern about what is happening to
the universities of this province."
While the University searches for a
successor to Pedersen, President pro
tern Robert Smith has the difficult job
of guiding UBC through a period of
uncertainty, challenge and change.
Being a university president in this
decade is not an easy job. B.C.'s economy is suffering and unemployment
remains at its highest level since the
1930s. But, at the same time, our economy is unlikely to recover without
scientific research and highly-skilled
human resources.

Economic restraint has been taking
its toll on higher education for several
years now. Most of UBC's funding
comes from the provincial government, but the province, in turn,
receives the major portion of this
money from the federal government.
Before 1977, Ottawa specified the
amount of funds to go to post-secondary education; but, since then, Ottawa
has simply transferred a lump sum to
the provinces to help cover both post-
secondary education and health care.
The arrangement sounds straightforward enough, but there is a wrinkle: the provinces are not obliged to
pass on the full amount of federal
funds to the universities and colleges.
B.C. is a case in point. In 1982/83, the
federal government transferred $412
million to B.C. for post-secondary
education. This amount was increased
8 per cent in 1983/84 and 6.9 per cent
in 1984/85. Those increases were welcome enough for universities already
hurting from rising costs. However, in
both years, the federal grants went
into B.C.'s general revenue and provincial funding for higher education
was cut back. This does not bode well
for economic recovery in this province.
Investment in higher education can
help improve the overall economic
performance in B.C. Just as prosperous industries have grown up
around such leading academic institutions as Stanford University and the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, collaboration between academics
and entrepreneurs will be a key factor
in B.C. becoming a major force in the
Pacific Rim in the years ahead.
For the past year, whether talking to
alumni, community groups or legislators, Pedersen tried to get an important message across: higher education
is not a luxury; it is an investment.
Said Pedersen at the time of his resignation, "I think .. . the public of this
province has to begin to pay much
greater attention to what is happening
to its universities... . The future of
this province rests very greatly with
our young people and those young
people have to be well educated."
If Pedersen's resignation seemed
dramatic, it may be because the condition of funding of universities in B.C.
today is dramatic. Alumni know that a
university education is a precious
thing. If s not too late for graduates to
protect the quality of their university
and their degrees, but it soon will be if
they don't voice their concern now.a
4   Chronide/Spn'ngl985 FREDERICK HUBERT SOWARD, 1899-1985
By Dr. James A. Gibson, ba'31	
President Emeritus
Brock University
The death of Frederick Hubert Soward,
LLD'64, on January 1, 1985, ended a connection with the University of British
Columbia which began in 1922 when he
came to the history department. In the
course of his teaching and administrative
service he was chairman of the department, associate dean and dean of graduate
studies, and, briefly, secretary of the Board
of Governors.
He grew up at Minden, in the Halibur-
ton area of Ontario (which he once
described as "prime Sam Hughes' territory.") It is said that he disguised his
(youthful) age to join the 48th Highlanders
in Toronto. He served overseas, and in the
occupation forces in Germany. Before
being demobilized he had attended Canadian Army courses in Edinburgh and at the
Khaki University at Ripon (Yorkshire).
After taking his degree at Toronto, he
entered at New College, Oxford, where he
took the degree then described as Bachelor
of Letters (later M.Litt.). In later years, he
received honorary degrees from Carleton
University and from UBC. In 1970 he was
made an honorary life member of the UBC
Alumni Association.
During World War II, Professor Soward
worked as a special assistant in the Department of External Affairs. This was a period
in which a "good generalist" — such as he
and other academic associates were —
could turn to a variety of tasks previously
outside the department's concerns. In his
case, to take one example, he presided
over a number of multinational meetings
on international telecommunications policy. At a later date he did work for the
department on policy and working guidelines for the preservation of departmental
records.
He was a founding member of the Vancouver branch of the Canadian Institute of
International Affairs, and served a term as
president of the Canadian Historical Association. He had been for many years Fellow
of the Royal Society of Canada; well into
retirement he continued an enviable career
as a reviewer of books, and notably of
detective stories.
During 1937/38, in my first full year as a
university lecturer at UBC, I shared his office in Room K of the Old Arts Building. He
had of course been one of my undergraduate teachers; it was partly at his instance
that I became a member of New College,
Oxford, while residing as Rhodes Scholar
from British Columbia. No one could have
been kinder in many personal ways, nor
more encouraging in professional requirements; and what began as a happy working relationship became a valued friendship for over 45 years thereafter.
I remember especially his incisive scholarship as perhaps the most perceptive of all
my teachers. One day in the honors seminar in historical method, which 55 years
ago used to meet in a seminar room in the
library, I left out, verbally, some profanity
appearing in one of the sources.
"It ought to be kept in," he said, and that
was that.
In 1933, proposing to read for B.Litt
(Modern History) I was required to call on
the Regius Professor (Sir Maurice
Powicke).
"Were you a pupil of Soward?" he
asked.
"Yes", I replied.
"You are better trained than most of our
undergraduates," he said. "I needn't trouble you further."
That, among many other remembrances,
I have always valued as "a mark of the
man".
Editor's note: The UBC history department proposes to establish an award in Dean Soward's
name for an outstanding graduate student in
history. Donations may be made payable to the
UBC Alumni Fund in memory of Dean Soward,
and mailed to 6251 Cecil Green Park Road, Vancouver, B.C., V6T1W5.M

THE SPIRIT
OF SERVICE
A CONFERENCE
sponsored by SEVA
May 24-26,1985
U.B.C. - Vancouver
SEVA is convening a conference to explore
the theme of "service". It seems that the
perennial voice of human compassion has
been weakened in this hard era. We are
hosting this gathering to strengthen this
voice, and to reaffirm the power of the
individual's act of giving.
The conference participants will include
people whose life and work have given
them cause to reflect on the many issues
involved in giving selfless service to others.
The format of the meetings will encourage
dialogue among the invited guests and
participants. At present the following
people have committed themselves to
participate:
Father Daniel Berrigan
Stewart Brand (Editor-Whole Earth Catalogue)
Naomi Bronstein
/Director, Heal the Children ■ Canada!
Major Roy Calvert (Head Salvation Amy B.C.)
Stephen k Iiu May Gaskin (Plenty-Canada)
Wavy Gravy
Rr Vilayat Khan
(Head of Sufi Order in the West)
Andy & Kate Lipids (The Tree People-USA)
Joanna Macy (latum, author)
John Maher (Delancy Street Foundation-USA)
Herbert ODriscoIl (author, Anglican Priest)
Ram Dass
(Board of Directors — SEVA, USA)
(tentative)
Joe Short (Past Exec. Dim. Oxfam-America)
Maurice Strong (Executive Coordinator
African Emergency Operations, U.N., N.Y.)
John & Nancy Todd (New Alchemy Institute)
Raymond ven der Buhs
(Unitarian Service Committee - Ottawa)
Further, organizations and individuals
representing a broad base and interest in
service will be participating in this event.

Canada's forests are in crisis.
Timber-r-r
Forestry Dean
Robert Kennedy:
Concerned about
canada's forests.
By Terry Lavender
//
FUTURE SHOCK Finally
Comes to Forestry" is the
title of a talk UBC Forestry
Dean Robert Kennedy,
MF'55, delivers occasionally
to community groups in the Lower Mainland.
Dr. Kennedy tells the assembled businessmen, senior citizens or young mothers that
after many years of believing that our forests
were inexhaustible, Canadians are finally coming to realize that we are rapidly depleting one
of our major natural resources — our supply
of trees.
And, he explains, it is time we began the
long, expensive process of growing the next
generation of trees, if Canada is to retain its
dominant position in the world forest products markets.
UBC Alumni Association Board member,
Dr. Oscar Sziklai, MF'61, PhD'64, of the
Department of Forest Sciences, tells a personal
story to emphasize forestry's importance:
"My father, who was a forester in Hungary,
was 47 years old when the situation started to
deteriorate in World War II. Like other men his
age, he was called into the army. Three days
later he was back. They had told him to go
back and tend the forests, that that was just as
important as fighting in the front lines.
"The significance of the forest is in the
minds of the people," Sziklai continues.
"Canadians don't realize the significance of
the forest. Only now are they beginning to
realize it, because of all the problems."
Kennedy and Sziklai are concerned about
the state of Canada's forests, and they, and
others at UBC such as former royal commissioner Peter Pearse, BSF'56, and botanist Iain
Taylor, are searching for solutions to the problems facing the forest sector.
Forestry is Canada's largest industry,
directly employing almost 300,000 people and
indirectly responsible for the jobs of another
500,000. One in ten Canadian workers
depends on the $23 billion forest industry for a
living.
British Columbia in particular is dependent
on its trees. Twenty percent of British Columbians are directly or indirectly employed by
the forest industry.
TROUBLED INDUSTRY
But Canada's most important industry is a
troubled one. Many forest companies operate
at a loss and thousands of forestry workers are
unemployed. The trees are disappearing, too.
British Columbia is not restocking its prime
forest land, many observers feel. Those trees
that do remain, says Pearse, a UBC forestry
professor, will be of lesser quality and in
increasingly inaccessible locations, therefore
more expensive to harvest.
Within 20 years the old growth forest will be
largely exhausted, states a 1980 provincial government report, leading to a decline of one-
third in the annual timber harvest and a loss of
60,000 jobs in British Columbia, unless steps
are taken to plant more seedlings.
The forest industry also faces threats from
beyond Canada's borders. Brazil, the United
States and the Scandinavian countries are
increasing their market share at Canada's
expense. In the past 20 years Canada's share
of the world forest products market has
dropped from over 30 percent to under 20 percent. Brazil and other tropical countries can
produce pulp logs in five to 10 years, compared to 25 to 50 years in Canada. The Scandinavian countries have been practising intensive forest management for 80 years, and now
produce three to four times as much wood as
Canada per productive unit of forest, according to Elbert Reid, BASc'51, a Vancouver forest
consultant (and President-elect of the UBC
Alumni Association).
Reid warns that "very dramatic changes will
have to be made to the direction of forest utilization, management and preservation if we
are to sustain our present forestry position or
grow to meet some of the potential world
demands for wood, recreation and conservation."
These changes, according to people like
Reid and Kennedy, include stopping the loss
of prime forest land to development, restocking logged-out lands and improving the quality and management of forest resources.
Kennedy feels we must practise intensive
forestry — controlling vegetation, spacing
new seedlings properly, pruning, thinning
and fertilizing them. If this is done just on
B.C.'s good and medium forest sites — 25 percent of the forest land — a substantial gain in
forest production will result.
"Practising intensive forestry, you can double the yield of the forest in 45 to 50 years,"
says Dean Kennedy.
Peter Pearse heads the Forest Economics
and Policy Analysis Project at UBC, a $1 million enterprise funded by the federal government. Pearse is well-known for the royal commissions he headed on fisheries, forests, and
now water resources. His UBC group is developing computer-based models to analyse different aspects of the forest sector, including
timber supply and the markets for plywood
and lumber, and pulp and paper.
While the Pearse group concentrates on the
economics of forestry, UBC professor Les
Reed, formerly the highest-ranking federal
civil servant responsible for forestry, is directing research in a number of policy areas,
including trade, Pacific Rim marketing strat-
8   Chronicle/Spring 1985 egy, labor, management and capital productivity, and biotechnology research.
Reed is the first occupant of a newly-
endowed industrial research chair in forest
policy. His position is jointly funded by the
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
Council and by several forest products companies and unions.
Reed's appointment was announced last
October, and already he has joined with Oscar
Sziklai in organizing a workshop on biotechnology in forest science, held at UBC.
Sziklai says the workshop brought together
experts from Canada, the United States and
Scandinavia, including microbiologists,
biochemists, plant scientists and forest scientists. It was a chance, he says, for scientists to
compare information, and, with many graduate students in attendance, a chance to try to
interest young researchers in applying
biotechnology to forestry.
Using biotechnology, desirable traits can be
"packaged into a new hybrid", Sziklai says.
Such a hybrid could then be used to restock
the logged-out forests, improving the resource
stock.
Botany professor Iain Taylor is working on
somewhat similar lines from outside the forestry faculty. He is trying to clone new trees
from the leaves of selected lodgepole pines.
Successful clones from a tree with desirable
characteristics could be used to replenish the
forests, Taylor feels. However, he says there
are still many hurdles to overcome.
A project with more immediate potential is a
new forest nursery planned for UBC's south
campus. One million spruce, Douglas fir and
lodgepole pine seedlings will be grown in the
nursery, expected to be ready later this spring.
The facility "will expose students to the
seedling production phase, which is so critical
in forest renewal," Sziklai says. "This is a
pioneering facility, where we'll be doing
research on increasing seedling growth."
Kennedy calls the nursery "an instructional
tool and a production plant. You can't do
research without a basic laboratory and this is
our laboratory. It opens a real vista to us and
certainly helps with this desperate problem of
forest renewal."
B.C.'s Ministry of Forests will buy the seedlings from the university at the commercial
rate, but Kennedy notes that though the UBC
nursery will produce one million seedlings,
"B.C. needs to grow seedlings in the hundreds of millions" to replenish the logged-out
lands.
Jack Walters, head of UBC's 5160 hectare
research forest at Maple Ridge, is trying to
mechanize seedling planting. His "planting
gun" forces the seedling into the ground,
allowing for rapid, accurate planting.
Dean Kennedy's own speciality is wood science, which studies the physical properties of
wood as a material. In this field improved
technology is increasing the output (finished
or semi-finished wood products) from a given
amount of input (logs), resulting in less waste.
"You get more out of the log base you
have," Kennedy says. "That is just as much
conservation as fire control or disease control.
In fact,  you could call it 'instant forestry'
because you get your results (improved productivity) right away instead of having to wait
for 40 or 50 years."
Kennedy believes we do not know enough
about the properties of wood and therefore
tend to overdesign in building, to be on the
safe side.
Interesting research is also being carried out
at the Forintek laboratory on campus. This
branch of Canada's National Wood Products
Research Organization is independent of
UBC, but there has been close collaboration
since it was established in 1918. A wide range
of research is carried out, including timber
engineering, plywood, wood anatomy, wood
preservation and sawmilling.
The Faculty of Forestry can use Forintek for
graduate research and even undergraduate
laboratory exercises. Several professors,
including Kennedy, used to work at Forintek.
The Pulp and Paper Research Institute is
also located at UBC. Funding of this research
institute is borne largely by Canada's pulp and
paper industry. As with Forintek, it supports
graduate studies and university research.
TOMORROW'S FORESTERS
Forestry students can specialize in one of
four areas — forest sciences, forest resource
management, forest harvesting or wood science and industry.
Students regularly work in the summer with
the forest industry or the federal or provincial
forest services. They learn how to apply their
classroom knowledge in the real world, and
the forest companies gain exposure to new
academic approaches. The university benefits
because of the strengthened ties to the forest
industry.
One academic program that has Dean Kennedy excited is the wood science business
management concentration, which requires
students to take four specified Commerce
courses and at least 4.5 units of other Commerce courses. Students gain a knowledge of
wood, wood processing and business procedures.
"We're getting more sophisticated wood
products and it takes sophisticated people to
sell these kinds of products. They need a
knowledge of technical qualities of wood and
business procedures," Kennedy says.
Though the employment prospects for forestry graduates are not good at the moment,
Kennedy sees better days ahead. The forest
industry is now acknowledging the need to
hire foresters with advanced degrees.
"Before, there wasn't a perceived need for
these kinds of people. Now they (industry and
government) are hiring graduate students
because they know they are the kind of people
who can adapt to future shock in forestry," the
dean believes.
Oscar Sziklai believes that UBC will always
be in the forefront of activity, as it has been in
the past. He cites the abundance of forest-
related activity on campus — the forestry faculty itself, Peter Pearse's group, a pulp and
paper research centre in the Faculty of Applied
Science, the Forintek research lab, biotechnology and genetics. With all this on campus,
Sziklai can see UBC developing into "a western forest science centre."*

8:15 A.M.
BOB AND ADELE Carson* walk
arm-in-arm into the UBC Health Sciences Centre Hospital, their brisk,
synchronized stride connoting forty
years of a close, empathetic marriage.
Bob Carson tells the receptionist that his
wife is here to attend the Alzheimer's Clinic, a
revelation that might puzzle the casual
observer. Adele, age 68, looks well; bright-
eyed, carefully dressed, she exudes an air of
gracious intelligence. Yet, as she is asked routine admission questions, simple answers
elude her. She speaks slowly, hesitating, sighing, and looking often to her husband for
assistance and reassurance.
Through the course of the day, it will be
revealed that this once articulate, trilingual
woman, who graduated from normal school at
the top of her class, who worked as a teacher
before her marriage, and who, for 20 years,
delivered lectures in French, cannot now find
the words to express herself.
Clinic staff will hear that she can no longer
read the books she brought with her as a war
bride from Belgium, cannot remember where
the cutlery or Kleenex is kept in her home of
23 years, cannot remember the date or how to
balance her chequebook or even, during periods of great agitation, who her husband is.
The Carsons are well enough read to know
that these may be signs of Alzheimer's disease, and have been warned by their family
doctor that this is a probable diagnosis. They
have come to the Alzheimer's Clinic at UBC
for a second opinion, and with the hope that
assessment here will reveal some other —
reversible — disorder.
The Clinic for Alzheimer's Disease and
Related Disorders, funded by a B.C. Ministry
of Health grant, opened at UBC Health Sciences Centre Hospital in November 1983. It
provides assessment and initial counselling for
people referred with memory impairment.
The clinic also works with UBC's Alzheimer's
research project, which provides a new generation of "brain imagers" housed at the hospital.
*Not their real names
8:30 A.M.
The Carson's first stop after registering is
the hospital laboratory, where red and green
topped tubes are filled with Adele's blood.
Analysis may disclose a condition, like thyroid
malfunction or pernicious anaemia, which
mimics dementia (organic loss of intellectual
function); may indicate the existence of a form
of dementia other than Alzheimer's disease; or
may identify a treatable disorder which is
aggravating an underlying dementing illness.
9 A.M.
After a quick breakfast (Adele had fasted for
the eight hours before her blood tests), the
Carsons are escorted upstairs, to be met by Dr.
Lynn Beattie, geriatric internist and medical
director of the Alzheimer's Clinic. Beattie,
who often heads up the day's interviews and
assessments, examines Adele and takes a thorough medical history.
"One of the problems with dementia, particularly Alzheimer's disease at the present time,
is that it is a diagnosis of exclusion," says Beat-
tie. "It's important to review the total health
picture, to find out whether there are any
other elements which could be contributing to
the (patient's) impairment in function."
Memory loss and confusion may be
responses to stress, grief, or anxiety, or may
be temporarily provoked by infection, a general anaesthetic, or an adverse drug reaction.
10 A.M.
A social history, which Beattie touches upon
in her interview, is elaborated by the clinic
social worker, Mabel Wong, BA'80, who
spends an hour with the Carsons, reviewing
the needs of both the patient and her husband.
"I concentrate on how the patient's memory
and health problems are affecting (the family)
in daily functioning, both at home and in the
community," says Wong.
The Carsons, who shop, cook, clean and
socialize together, are exceptional in their self-
sufficiency and equanimity. Many families
seen in the clinic have reached a point of
desperation before requesting an assessment,
often because they're unaware of social services available to them.

and that of a

(bottom). Red and
green areas denote
brain activity, blue

Although Wong may actively counsel in
cases where there is marital or family strife,
her role, as Beattie describes it, is more often
one of "networking", initiating contact
between families and Long Term Care or other
social agencies to provide homemaker service,
day care, or respite care. Follow-up by Wong
may be necessary to ensure that changing
needs are met before the "caregiver", whether
spouse, sibling, or adult child, becomes
exhausted attempting to look after a patient
whose condition is inexorably deteriorating.
11 A.M.
Clinic psychiatrist, Dr. Annette Horton,
picks up the Carsons after their social work
assessment. Horton's main function here, in
addition to contributing to a diagnosis of
dementia if that is the case, is to identify
patients suffering psychiatric illness.
"Forty-two percent of the people who come
into the clinic — whether they're demented or
not — have some psychiatric diagnosis," says
Horton.
Her questioning may also reveal alcohol or
drug abuse: "We're finding that one in ten
patients has quite a serious drinking problem,
which can cause memory problems, and confusion."
However, she says, "the principal thing I'm
looking for is depression." Depression, which
can cause memory loss, poor concentration,
and slowed thought processes, may either
mimic dementia or exacerbate it.
"Depression is very common in the elderly
anyway, but it also appears to be common in
the beginning stages of dementia, when the
person has insight that something is happen-
ing."
Both Horton and Beattie stress that the
significance of a diagnosis of depression is that
it can be successfully treated, improving mood
and concentration and alleviating apathy, agitation and sleep disturbance.
12:15 P.M.
The Carsons take lunch in the hospital cafeteria which, though noisy and crowded with
students and staff, provides a necessary
respite after three highly charged hours of
assessment.
1P.M.
In the early afternoon, they return to the
clinic for their appointment with neuropsychologist, Dr. Holly Tuokko. Tuokko directs
Adele through a battery of tests, the results of
which will delineate the extent of her mental
impairment.
Through measuring attention, concentration, remote, recent and immediate memory,
ability to acquire and retain new information,
receptive and expressive language skills, visual-spatial functioning and motor skills, the
clinic psychologist fulfills what Tuokko
describes as a "threefold" role.
"First, to contribute to the diagnostic process, (to identify) whether the person is
demented or not. Second, to provide a baseline of quantifiable information about the
patient's functioning that can be compared
over time to the course of deterioration of the
disease. And third, to investigate the correlation between physiological measures of
impairment, such as the PET scan or the MRI,
and behavioral and cognitive measures of
impairment."
In immediate terms, Tuokko translates test
results into recommendations concerning
"what kinds of approaches family members or
primary caregivers should take with the person, what kinds of things the person can deal
with and cannot deal with. We provide the
family members with a clear understanding of
how the patient is functioning."
2:30 P.M.
After the psychological examination, Adele
and Bob Carson are interviewed by the newest
member of the Alzheimer's Clinic team, Dr.
Dessa Sadovnick, PhD'80. Sadovnick has been
"loaned" to the clinic by UBC's Department of
Medical Genetics, to gather genetic histories of
patients. The information she compiles aids
both the diagnostic and research processes,
since studies suggest a genetic component in
the occurrence of Alzheimer's disease. Sadovnick seeks out evidence in the patient's immediate and extended family, not only of dementia, but also of psychiatric illness, alcoholism,
and neurological disorders.
3 P.M.
A thin ray of afternoon sun slants through
the sitting room window as the Carsons pick
up their coats and prepare to leave the clinic.
The interviews are over, but Adele has yet to
undergo an ECG (electrocardiogram), chest x-
ray, and CT (computerized tomography) scan,
diagnostic aids in further excluding other
causes for Adele's memory loss.
A chest x-ray may reveal cardiac or pulmonary disease and the ECG, as Beattie explains,
is useful in screening patients "who have a
history of cardiac problems, because they may
be more likely to be hypertensive and may be
more likely to have vascular dementia."
The presence of vascular dementia may also
be indicated by the CT scan, as may tumors or
head injuries. Using x-rays and a computer,
the CT scan produces a series of cross-sectional images of the brain. Although these
images may exhibit changes typical of
Alzheimer's disease (shrunken outer layer of
the brain with enlarged ventricles or interior
cavities), they are not, in themselves, an absolute indicator of the disease.
FOLLOW-UP
Following the initial assessment, the clinic
team meets to compare diagnostic impressions
and make recommendations for follow-up. In
Adele Carson's case, the team advocates
examination by neurologist Dr. Jon Stoessl, a
Medical Clinical Fellow, who is attached to
both the Alzheimer's Clinic and the
Alzheimer's research project at UBC. Stoessl,
in consultation with Neurology Division head,
Dr. Donald Calne, assesses patient suitability
for the complicated new "imaging" procedures, PET (Positron Emission Tomography)
12    Chronicle/Spring 1985 and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and
also screens out other neurological diseases
the symptoms of which may overlap with
Alzheimer's.
Stoessl explains the research project to the
Carsons, who have already prepared themselves for participating in it. Of this commitment, Bob says simply, "Both of us thought
that we would do as much as we could."
Within six weeks of assessment, the Car-
sons are called back to the clinic for a "family
conference" with Beattie. As medical director
of the Alzheimer's Clinic, it is Beattie's job to
evaluate the results of the many diagnostic
procedures which have been used in the
assessment and to coordinate reports from the
multiple disciplines, sending a summary to
the patient's family doctor and, at the conference, interpreting the clinical material for concerned family members.
The Carsons are told that Alzheimer's disease is the likeliest diagnosis and are advised
about its nature and probable course, with recommendations for current and future care.
Mention is made of memory aids which,
together with a stable and structured environ
ment and physical and intellectual exercise,
may retard the rate of deterioration in Adele's
functioning.
With this knowledge, the Carsons resume
their orderly and devoted existence, rising and
working together through the day's routines.
They plan to continue reading together (Bob,
aloud to Adele), attending concerts, plays and
lectures, and may drive down the California
coast in June. Bob describes his feelings after
the assessment as "resigned" but not despairing.
"We'll just have to make the best of it. . . .
What we hope to do is to be able to stay
together as long as possible."
Adele listens attentively to her husband,
joining with him in reminiscences of their wartime courtship and in descriptions of their
two-year-old grandson. She nods as Bob mentions her 30 years' volunteer work for the Multiple Sclerosis Society and recalls her fundrais-
ing efforts — sewing "monkeys by the dozen"
and assembling boxloads of "candy wreaths at
Christmas time."
Their eyes meet in amused recollection of a
happier chaos.■
ALZHEIMER'S RESEARCH UPDATE
By Karen Loder
AN EXPLOSION of research on
_/"\ dementia — particularly Alzheimer's disease — has taken place since
the mid-1970s. In the U.S., funding has
increased tenfold, from under $4 million
in 1976, to $37.1 million this year. Even
with this increase, one thousand times
more money is spent on treatment and
nursing home care than on research.
In Canada, the disease costs more than
$1.5 billion annually in care. Yet, over the
past three years, the Medical Research
Council has supported only four major
projects on Alzheimer's disease, with
total expenditures of approximately
$400,000. The major funding for Canadian research comes from an American
agency, the National Institute of Aging,
and amounts to nearly $1 million (U.S.)
for a three-year project called "A Clinico-
pathological Study of Alzheimer's Disease" at the University of Western
Ontario'
Although little is known about the
cause or treatment of the disease, recent
findings have given clues to the areas of
the brain where attention should be
focussed. And the development of new
techniques, such as brain imaging,
immunohistochemical staining and
molecular genetic techniques, offers
other routes of attack.
Theories regarding the cause fall into
five categories: neurochemical, toxic,
genetic, viral and immunological factors.
Investigations into these areas overlap in
many cases.
Acetylcholine deficiency: This category
has attracted the most attention and
given rise to the most attempts at
therapy. The brains of Alzheimer's victims have reduced levels of acetylcholine,
one of the chemicals that allows brain
cells to communicate with each other. So
far, attempts using drugs to help the
brain manufacture and raise its own levels have not been successful.
The cholinergic neurons were first
mapped in microscopic sections in the
Kinsmen Laboratory of Neurological
Research at UBC, headed by Drs. Pat and
Edith McGeer. Now they are working to
establish whether the defect in glucose
metabolism found in Alzheimer's victims
is secondary to cholinergic deficiency and
if drugs have any effect upon the symptoms. The lab is also doing experiments
to test the hypothesis that the loss in
somatostatin (small protein material used
as a neurotransmitter by some neurons in
the cortex) may be secondary to the cholinergic defect.
Dr. H. Christian Fibiger of the Kinsmen Laboratory has been working with
rats in which the acetylcholine cells lost
in Alzheimer's disease are destroyed.
When tested afterward, the rats showed
defects in learning and memory similar to
a person afflicted with the disease. It is
hoped that with the development of this
"model", trials can be used to explore
potential new drugs.
Viruses: Alzheimer's disease could be
caused by a common virus getting into
the brain which is normally protected
from such an invasion. Dr. Jim Hudson
and others in the division of Medical
Microbiology are working with the
McGeers in a search for viral DNA in the
affected brain areas. First attention will
be given to the DNA of viruses such as
Herpes simplex, measles and polio.
Genetics: There is evidence that, in
some cases, Alzheimer's disease runs in
families. Moreover, victims of Down's
Syndrome develop Alzheimer-type
changes and there is a familial association
of the two conditions. Since an extra
chromosome is the culprit in Down's and
a genetic defect may be involved in
. Alzheimer's, the Kinsmen Laboratory is
using the techniques of molecular genetics to study the mid-brain tissue from
persons with or without Alzheimer's disease. Researchers at the laboratory are
trying to detect an abnormal gene product which might be associated with the
disease.
Immunological defects: The distinctive
trademark of Alzheimer's disease are the
plaques and tangles found in the brain.
Analysis of the amyloid core of neuritic
plaques reveals the fibres of abnormal
protein. These fibres may be a sign of a
defect in the body's immune system. The
twisted fibres that make up the
neurofibrillary tangles are also abnormal
proteins.
Trace metals: Accumulations of aluminum have been found within the affected
nerve cells of subjects showing the classic
plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of
Alzheimer's. This accumulation is currently thought to be a secondary phenomenon and not a cause of the disease.
At UBC's Health Sciences Centre Hospital (HSCH) Alzheimer's Clinic, genetic,
clinical and psychological investigations
are underway to better define the symptoms and progression of the disease. A
new study is being conducted by Dr.
Holly Tuokko, the clinic's psychologist
and Dr. David Li of the HSCH radiology
department. They are gathering much
needed data on a neurologically normal
elderly population.
A positive development on the local
research front has been the recent coordination of clinical and research efforts
between geriatricians and psychogeriatri-
dans involving UBC Health Sciences
Centre, Valleyview, Vancouver General
and Shaughnessy Hospitals. And the
Alzheimer's Clinic is at the hub of this
development. ■
Chronicle/Spring 1985    13 Cecil H. Green on his early involvement in Texas Instruments: "We
were looking for what I call 'the naturals', the ones who loved what
they were doing."
The
Natural
By Anne Sharp
//
ONE OF THE GREATEST pleasures in life is
not going fishing, not
playing golf, and not
building a yacht or
fancy house somewhere. No — the feeling of
accomplishment — that's the greatest pleasure."
These may be the words of a workaholic
but, at least, he's a very relaxed and contented
workaholic; and at age 84, he can say "well, if
I had to do it all over again, I'd do the same
thing."
Former UBC engineering student Cecil H.
Green feels lucky he can say that. But, considering the life he and his wife, Ida, have had
together, it's not surprising there are no
regrets. A pioneer in exploration geophysics,
Cecil Green was one of the founders of the
high technology company, Texas Instruments.
Cecil and Ida's 59-year marriage has withstood
the tests of time, relocation and many changes
in financial security.
"You know what I finally decided," says
Green, commenting on his long marriage with
Ida. "Having everything easy and comfortable
doesn't naturally keep people together. Working to accomplish something, struggling
together has more to do with keeping people
together. And when a wife feels she's a necessary component, that's when you're working
together."
In conversation, Cecil Green is informal and
outgoing. He has a keen memory for a man in
his eighties — so much so that he occasionally
gets sidetracked bringing to mind a lifetime of
stories and observations.
The Greens have no children of their own
but their generosity has helped educate more
young people than they'll ever know. They
have funded more than 20 professorships, a
world-wide earthquake detection system, a
score of hospitals, research centres and university buildings — all to enhance progress in
the fields of education, communication,
health, medicine, and science.
14   Chronicle/Spring 1985
In 1966, they donated $200,000 to the University of British Columbia for the purchase
and upkeep of what is now known as Cecil
Green Park, UBC's alumni centre on campus.
The house serves as offices for the Alumni
Association and as a "town-gown" activities
centre, bringing grads back to campus and
keeping them in touch with the university.
And in 1970, UBC received a gift of $600,000
from the Greens enabling the university to
bring to the campus distinguished visiting
professors and scholars. The money was
invested by the university and the annual
income established the Cecil and Ida Green
Visiting Professorships.
The Greens said at the time that their donation was prompted by their "hope that each
generation of students will have contact with a
group of world-renowned teachers, thinkers
and researchers visiting the UBC campus."
The UBC student Alma Mater Society honored Cecil and Ida Green with the 1984 Great
Trekker Award at a ceremony last fall on campus. Although Mrs. Green was unable to
attend, Cecil accepted the honor in person.
He felt the Great Trekker Award was especially appropriate because "it makes official
the lifestyle my wife and I have been leading
all these years."
In the early years of their marriage, the
Greens trekked across the continent five times
as he searched for a challenging career. Green
worked for electronics companies in New England. He unsuccessfully tried to start a business selling neon signs in Vancouver. (There
was no need for an electrical engineer here in
the 1920s.) He answered countless disappointing want ads for sales jobs.
The Greens were drawn to the west coast
life style several times during these years, but
found that work and business opportunities
were limited. They moved back to Boston.
"You have to go where the work is," Green
says.
In 1929, they went to Palo Alto, California
where Green took a job at Federal Telegraph
Co. There, he worked with a young, energetic
electronics engineer named Charles Litton,
who went on to found Litton Industries.
Ida Green,
UBC Benefactor Green later was convinced by Ida and a former colleague to hire on with the newly organized Geophysical Service, Inc. (GSI) as a
party chief, overseeing a field crew working
on seismic exploration for oil in central Oklahoma.
"It took me six years to figure out what I
wanted to do," says Green. "The geophysical
exploration business was a happy combination
of technology and people. I owe my wife an
awful lot for the years she had to wander
around the country with a very unstable individual."
CECIL HOWARD GREEN was born in
Manchester, England in 1900 but his parents moved to eastern Canada in 1902 and
then on to San Francisco. It was the great San
Francisco earthquake of 1906 (which Green
credits with sparking his future career interest
in seismology) that convinced the family to
move to Vancouver.
"I was awakened rudely at five in the morn
ing," recalls Green. "I can remember everything vividly: plaster falling in my face, sleeping in Golden Gate Park, eating in food lines,
going by horse drawn wagon to catch the ferry
to Oakland, and then riding the train to Vancouver."
Green was educated in Vancouver elementary and secondary schools and attended UBC
as an engineering student from 1918 to 1921.
He then enrolled in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received his
Bachelor of Science and Master of Science
degrees in Engineering.
He met Ida when he was working at the
General Electric plant in Schenectady, New
York, a job that was part of his Master's thesis
in the MIT co-operative electrical engineering
program. After completing his Master's in
1924, he returned to work at G.E. and married
Ida in 1926.
Green says the best business decision he
ever made was "mortgaging myself to the
hilt" to buy Geophysical Service with three
other   company  employees.   The   deal   was
Cecil Green
accepting the
Great Trekker
Award on behalf of
himself and his
wife, ida: "it makes
official the
lifestyle we have
been leading all
these years."
Chronicle/Spring 1985   15 closed December 6, 1941, one day before Pearl
Harbor was attacked. World War II forced the
company to diversify into military electronics
and the GSI investment snowballed into an
empire.
After World War II, the four partners formed
a subsidiary called Texas Instruments to continue the electronics side of the business.
Texas Instruments became involved in semiconductors, in particular, and was among the
first companies to get a licence to build and
market transistors following the war.
The Greens' philanthropy was an outgrowth of their involvement in Texas Instruments. Green wanted to bring sharp, young
minds into the company.
"We were looking for what I call 'the naturals', the ones who loved what they were
doing... that's the type of man you've got to
have inventing for you."
In 1951, Green started collaborating with
Professor Robert Shrock, then head of Earth
Sciences at MIT, on a student orientation program. This involved bringing to Dallas a
selected group of junior level undergrad students who showed an interest in applied geophysics. Within a year, the program expanded
to include other universities in the U.S. and
the Universities of Toronto and British Columbia in Canada.
"Our technological people would put on a
lecture series telling how applied geophysics
works, what the instrumentation's like, what
the language was, how we handle the data,
how we interpret it, and how it fits in with
geology and so on. The students would spend
the rest of the summer working on field
crews."
Green has worked with students through
university/industry co-operative programs for
nearly half a century. Asked his advice for
THE TRADITION OF
THE GREAT TREK
CECIL AND IDA Green were the 1984 recipients of the Alma Mater Society's Great Trekker Award, which is given annually in recognition of outstanding contributions to UBC.
The award was established in 1950, and is named for the original Great Trek
in 1922. The students of that time marched to protest the lack of government
action on building the promised University of B.C. at Point Grey.
The marchers, 1,000 strong, walked through downtown Vancouver to Pacific
Avenue, where they boarded streetcars and rode to Tenth and Sasamat. From
there they trekked to the unfinished campus. A week later a student delegation
took a 56,000 signature petition to the provincial government, and soon after
that the premier announced a $1.5 million grant to build the university.
UBC and Simon Fraser University faculty, support staff and students held a
"Second Great Trek" February 19, 1985 to protest against provincial cuts to the
operating grants of UBC, SFU and the University of Victoria.
UBC political science professor, Philip Resnick, proposed the second Trek "to
dramatize the threats which any further reduction in the operating grant to the
universities would pose to the quality of higher education in this province and
to protest, in the strongest possible terms, any attempt by the provincial government to interfere with the autonomy of the universities."
An estimated 2,000 people took part in the trek, which started with noon-
hour rallies at SFU and UBC and local community colleges. UBC participants
then marched to the University Gates, and from there were bused to Robson
Square for a 3:30 p.m. rally.
UBC students have staged other "treks" in support of higher education; in
1957, 1965 and 1982. The latter march was held on the 60th anniversary of the
original Great Trek. ■
today's student, he responds without hesitation: "My great advice to them is to try to find
themselves in terms of what's going to be their
cup of tea.
"When some of our recruits would say they
didn't want to get into geophysics after all, we
didn't get mad at them. Hell, that's good. Get
into something else, even if it's chicken-raising
or something. If you enjoy it, you'll be a success at it.
"The all-important thing is that no-one —
your favorite uncle or your parents — can say
you ought to go into this or that because it
pays the most money. That's the kind of
advice I used to listen to in my day and to a
degree I think we're coming back to that again
here. But if you're working at something just
because it's a 9 to 5 job you're not going to
stand a chance competing against someone
who is working on it because he really loves
what he's doing. You get more out of life, you
get happy."
Green and his associates at TI discovered
that to attract highly-skilled workers, they had
to either stimulate education in the Dallas area
or move Texas Instruments to another environment. They chose the former.
They established the Graduate Research
Centre of the Southwest, which later became,
at the instigation of TI, a part of the University
of Texas in Dallas.
Green also went on to develop what was
known as the TAGER program (The Association for Graduate Education and Research), a
closed-circuit television linkup between all the
campuses (private and state) in the Dallas/
Fortworth area.
Now, 17 years later, in addition to tying the
universities and colleges together, TAGER has
established classrooms in every major technology enterprise in the Dallas/Fortworth region,
with one-way video and two-way audio.
The TAGER program is typical of the type of
collaboration between universities and industry that the Greens support and promote.
Cecil Green sees such collaboration as an
important factor in getting top quality people
and maintaining a leading edge in research
and development. These are two of his concerns in running a company.
"We have to worry about the quality of people and, in a technology company, keeping up
to date, because what you're doing today can
be obsolete tomorrow. You have to be very
careful about that.
"And communication throughout the company is crucial so that all elements know what
the others are doing. We have a saying in our
company that a manager's responsibility
exceeds his authority.
"You not only feel responsible for your particular job but you feel responsible for anything else that might go wrong in the entire
company. I don't worry about personalities.
Teamwork — it's extremely important."
Green's emphasis on teamwork is part of
the reason Texas Instruments is frequently
mentioned in In Search of Excellence, the recent
best-seller about America's best-run companies. And there is no doubt teamwork has
something to do with why Cecil and Ida Green
are now entering their 60th year of marriage. ■

bursaries awarded are the Norman
MacKenzie Alumni Scholarship, the Walter
H. Gage Bursary, the Norman MacKenzie
Regional College Scholarship, Jennie
Gillespie Drennan Memorial Scholarship,

per cent of its $334,000 goal — in its
campaign to establish an endowment fund
as a guaranteed source of funding for these
scholarships. The money will be matched
by the Vancouver Foundation and the
University, raising the money in the
endowment fund to $1 million.
Gerry Marra, President of the Friends of
UBC, Inc., also attended the reception. He

per the will of Albert Drennan, who
established the scholarship fund in
memory of his aunt. The extra gift will
allow the Friends of UBC to provide two
more Drennan Memorial Scholarships to
women students in Medicine at UBC.B

We need your help!
The Alumni Association maintains a
mailing list of graduates for the University. This list is required for the
registrar's mailing for the Senate and
Chancellor elections and other purposes.
But maintaining addresses for graduates is becoming more difficult each
year, because of the size of the list
(112,304 names and growing by 4,000
each year!), the mobility of graduates
and financial restraint at the University.
If you can volunteer some time to
help us (it doesn't matter where you
