Editor's Notes
If you grew up in this part of Canada,
chances are UBC had a profound influence on your life. Chances are most
ofthe teachers who moulded you were
UBC grads, as were most of the doctors, dentists and other professionals
you or your family had contact with.
If you stayed in B.C, chances are
most ofthe live theatre, dance or musical
presentations you saw had more than
a passing connection to UBC. A good
percentage ofthe people you dealt with—
architects, lawyers, accountants, recreation workers and others were prod
ucts of UBC. The university, through
its grads, shapes the people and the
society around it: most of the decision
makers in B.C. are UBC grads.
Part of the function of a university
magazine is to bring news of this influence to its readers.
This issue of The Chronicle is full
of such news. Our article on the Britannia copper mine tells of UBC's connection to that old money maker from
the days when it was the largest copper mine in the Commonwealth to its
recent incarnation as a museum. Our
new section on UBC sports shows and
tells how we make a splash in the
national and international sports scene.
But UBC's influence isn't all positive. There are many in the community
who think the university's plans to
build luxury housing on campus land
is a travesty. Our "pro and con" articles
on the UBC Real Estate Corporation
help you judge the issue.
We've included new features like
student news and research news, and,
of course, the old standbys. We hope
you enjoy the magazine.
And don't forget our Secret Places
contest. See page 11.

and next year's 7Sth Anniversary would
be impossible without volunteers.

donating their time. It takes many volunteer hours to arrange events, to sit
on university boards and committees, to write newsletters or to take on any
of the countless other functions volunteers perform. Ideally, many people
volunteering a little time make these tasks fun. All too often, however, only
a few people v#ftnteer most of the time.
Organizations have found the number of active volunteers has dwindled
during the past decade. One reason may be that volunteer activities have
not changed with the times. As the lifestyles of our graduates become more
diverse, we need to find ways to involve a hroader representation of alupjii!.
Today's volunteers don't conform to old stereotypes. The homemaker as
community worker or the businessman at the service club have given way
to the reality of working couples or families who may want to spend their
leisure time together. A broad based organization, like the Alumni Association, can deveksp aetMties of interest to singles, couples and families.
Couples like .Jack and Mar%n Pomfret and George and Mary Plant have
been recognized for their contributions to the Alumni Association and the
university. Sherwood and Evelyn Lett, who organized the first alumni
meeting on May 4, 1917, remained involved for years, and Evelyn still
attends Assoeiaton -taction!.*
We would be pleased to hear ideas from you about how you would like to
be actively involved in the activities of OBC and the Alumni Association.

The President's Fund
and Change
When was the last time yon visited the
UBC campus? Did you notice the changes
that have happened since you left? Could
you sense the changes that are coming?
Among the buildings that have graced
the campus for years, new buildings are
springing up and more are on the way.
Inside these buildings, students are exploring areas of study unimagined ten years
ago. Change has become a basic element of
higher education and responding quickly is
a fundamental challenge that the university must meet.
UBC alumni play an important role in
helping UBC to face this challenge. By
supporting UBC's World of Opportunity
Campaign, graduates who know the value
of a UBC degree can help the university
take advantage of opportunities created by
rapid change.
Alumni and
The President's Fund
_r_lumni are vital contributors to UBC's
$132 million World of Opportunity Campaign, launched in March 1989. The money
raised through this campaign will provide
the university with facilities, scholarships,
endowed chairs and equipment. It will help
UBC offer the best education possible in a
world where, more than ever before, innovation and ingenuity will define a great university.
The President's Fund is an important
part of this campaign. It is through this
fund that alumni contributions make a real
While most gifts and grants to the
university are restricted to the support of
particular programs, the President's Fund
will be an unrestricted endowment of $24
million. It will give the university flexibility
to fund unforeseen programs and the ability to seize unexpected opportunities.
Thanks to pledges already made by
the Vancouver Foundation and the provincial government, alumni contributing specifically to the President's Fund can see
their donations quadruple in value. A
$10,000 gift to the Fund is first matched by
the Vancouver Foundation, then by the
provincial government. A $1,000 gift is
worth $4,000 to the university.
Building a World of
_\. cornerstone ofthe President's Fund will
be entrance scholarships to extend access
to the brightest and best students in this
province and the nation. As well, the financing of graduate fellowships, essential
to making UBC a world class university,
will be increased by the Fund. This is
consistent with the university's mission to
expand graduate enrolment by 2,000 students.
The Fund will also be used to augment the present program of grants for
education abroad. Within five years, as
much as 5% of the student body will be
studying abroad, and the Fund will provide
undergraduate grants for travel and living
In addition, increased monies will be
available for graduate programs for women,
especially in areas where women are under-represented. Scholarships and bursary support of First Nations' students will
grow, giving native people greater representation on campus. And financial support for disabled students will allow access
to the unique opportunities UBC offers.
President's Fund donations will also
free the university to react quickly to the
unexpected. Funds will be used to attract
distinguished faculty or purchase collections that come on the market suddenly.
Celebrated scholars will be brought to the
campus for seminars and conferences;
writers and scientists for workshops and
lecture programs. The President's Fund
will provide students and faculty greater
access to the best in contemporary work
and thought.
By building an unrestricted fund to
deal with the unforeseen, alumni donors
will enable the president, in consultation
with community and campus representatives, to meet the challenge of change. They
will carry on a long tradition of alumni
support for their alma mater.
Remember the President's Fund and
look for more information about it.
And the next time you make the long
trek back to UBC. take a good look around.
The faces, the buildings, the sense of change
—that's the future coming and it's coming
fast. The President's Fund, backed by the
alumni, can match that pace.
6 Chronicle/Winter 1989 The President's Fund will provide more scholarships and fellowships for UBC students.

UBC's Research Status Boosted
U BC received a huge boost to its image as a first rate research institution when
the federal government announced plans to spend $240 million across Canada
in 14 separate areas of research. The university will be involved in 12 ofthe 14
projects, and will be lead participant in three.
Dr. Michael Hayden, professor of Medical Genetics, has received $17.5 million
to study the genes that directly cause or predispose people to disease. He will
work with 22 scientists from eight universities and hospitals to determine how
these genes cause disease, and how process can be interrupted.
Robert Hancock, professor in the department of Microbiology has received
$18.2 million to investigate disease causing bacteria. He will head a research
network of 50 scientists in nine different centres. Their research will centre on
bacterial diseases in plants, fish, animals and humans, and will work toward
improving existing diagnostic tests and treatments.
Michael Smith, professor in the department of Biochemistry, will head a team
of 21 researchers from five centres across Canada in the development of
processes and products to be used in Canada's growing biotechnology industry.
Robert Miller, UBC vice-president of research, said, "We're thrilled. It demonstrates (both) our linkage with the research community int he rest of Canada ...
and our desire to collaborate with outstanding research whenever possible."
The projects, called "Centres of Excellence," are funded through the federal
Ministry of State for Science and Technology and are meant to foster collaborative efforts among universities, research institutes and the private sector.
UBC-lndustry Office Does Brisk Business
XVemember all those nifty, million dollar inventions you dreamed about but
never followed up on when you were studying at UBC? Some UBC grads have
gone to market with their ideas and, with the help of the University-Industry
Liaison Office (UILO). they are now cashing in on those great ideas.
Here are a few examples of the many success stories among UBC alumni:
Lome Whitehead, PhD'89, formed TIR Systems Ltd. in 1983. His company
engineers, manufactures and markets commercial Light Pipe systems. You
might recall seeing them at Expo 86, where light pipes were used on the monorail
archways and in some ofthe pavilions. TIR Systems now employs 25 people and
its annual sales last year were in excess of $1 million.
The Canadian Liposome Company Ltd. was set up following a successful
collaboration between UBC faculty member Dr. Peter Cullis and the Liposome
Company of New Jersey. CLC has an annual operating budget of over $1 million
and employs 10 people in the research and development of anti cancer drugs.
Another UBC success story is Helix Biotech Corporation. It was set up in 1980
by Terrance Owen, PhD'74, and its revenue last year was over half a million
dollars. The company has created 9 jobs in the research, development and
manufacture of diagnostic equipment.
These three are only a sample of the 73 companies that have been created as
a result of UBC research. In 1988, these companies had sales of $300 million and
employed over 2,800 people.
The UILO has played a major role in developing these companies. The UILO
will help researchers secure patenting and licensing agreements, and will
arrange collaborative research contracts with industry. Our Prototype Development program will help move your idea from the lab to the marketplace.
For further information, contact James Murray, at (604) 224-8580.
Prof. Leads Reproduction Commission
IP ormer Medical Genetics head Dr. Patricia Baird has been appointed to head
a royal commission on reproductive technology. She will lead the commission in
analysing issues such as infertility and the impact of current and potential
reproductive technological advances. The report of the commission is due no
later than October, 1991.
Also on the commission is Maureen McTeer and six other members from
across Canada.
Dr. Baird is currently a professor in the medical genetics department.
1 he UBC Faculty of Medicine has
been chosen to develop a national
network for HIV clinical trials to coordinate testing of all new AIDS drugs
and vaccines in collaboration with
Health and Welfare Canada.
This testing network will be the first
of its kind in Canada, and will be
centred at UBC and St. Paul's Hospital, a teaching hospital of the university. The network will hasten testing of
the drugs, provide rapid evaluation of
their effectiveness and increase access
of the drugs to AIDS sufferers.
The proposal for funding the network was prepared by Drs. John Ruedy
and Julio Montaner or UBC's Faculty
of Medicine, and Dr. Martin Schechter
of the Department of Health Care and
Several regional units across Canada will form the network, and each
will enrol patients into clinical trials
and carry out the studies in their particular regions. Clinical trial results
will be monitored and analyzed at the
national data centre to be located at St.
The anticipated cost ofthe network
is $2.5 - $3 million per year.
Researcher Questions Genetic Laws
_r\ basic tenet of genetic law holds that
as long as a person has two good copies
of genes, it makes no difference if they
were inherited from the mother or the
Now, a UBC researcher has concluded that some types of cancer and
many inherited diseased may be caused
by differences in information contained
in genes passed from parents to their
If the conclusions of Dr. Judith
Hall, director of the UBC Clinical Genetics Unit are correct, they would
contradict a basic principle of genetics
established in the 19th century by
Gregor Mandel.
Genes are carried by 23 pairs of
chromosomes that exist in each cell of
the human body.
Geneticists have proved that deletions or loss of one part of chromosome
15 produces two different conditions,
depending on whether the loss is from
the maternal or paternal chromosome.
If the maternal chromosome 15 is affected, Angelman Syndrome may oc-
Chronicle/Winter 1989 9 cur causing outbursts of inappropriate laughter, hyperactivity, mental
retardation and seizures. If the paternal chromosome is affected, Prader-
Willi Syndrome may occur, causing
obesity and mental retardation.
Dr. Hall says that a significant
number of specific disorders have already been identified as possibly being
affected by this genetic phenomenon.
As many as 25% of human genes may
have imprinting defects.
Hansen Fellowship
1 he federal government has provided
$2 million to establish the Rick Hansen
National Fellow program at UBC. The
program will promote the interests of
people with disabilities especially as
they relate to post secondary education.
The money will be used to create a
fellow endowment fund and the incumbent fellow will work closely with
the proposed UBC Disability Centre
slated to be fully operational by September, 1991. The university has agreed
to raise funds for an endowment to the
Disability Centre to match the federal
grant for the Hansen fellow, and to
continue to finance existing programs
for the disabled.
Rick Hansen joined UBC in March
1989 for a two year appointment as a
special consultant to the president.
His mandate is to help the university

10 Chronicle /Winter 1989 Student News
_tls a service to those of our readers
who don't get back to campus regularly, we present a brief summary of
the news that has concerned students
over the past few months. The basis for
most of our news will come from reports
in The Ubyssey.
Rec Fac Fiasco
By far the most contentious issue
facing students during the fall term of
1989 was that ofthe Recreation Facility Referendum.
The concept of a Student Recreation Facility (Rec Fac) was first put forward in 1982. In 1988. the AMS submitted a formal proposal as part of the
university's current World of Opportunity Campaign. The price tag was $9.5
million or which the AMS was to raise
$3.75 million
To raise the money, the AMS decided to levy a $30 student activity
fund. The referendum, held in 1988 to
approve the levy, passed by 60%.
A controversy immediately arose.
The AMS was accused of not giving the
time or the opportunity for any opposition to be voiced. A petition demanding
another referendum collected the required 1000 signatures.
A new vote was set for September
25 - 29 '89, soon after the beginning of
the fall term. Four "no" committees
were formed, and they waged a strong
opposition campaign.
One strong point of objection centred
upon components of the facility that
had been eliminated since the original
referendum: aconcert hall, weight room,
squash and racquetball courts, adequate parking and a daycare facility.
Things really heated up when the
Student Administration Commission
(SAC) tried to institute a media blackout (to lessen the impact of the "no"
forces) from September 22 until after
the vote. The chairperson of SAC was
also on the AMS council and on the
recreation centre committee.
During referendum voting, a reporter from the Ubyssey was able to
vote twice, contributing to later claims
of possible voting improprieties.
Last but not least, the "quorum
issue" exploded. A quorum formula
was never clarified. The vote was 2,612
"no" and 1,766 "yes." The "yes" forces
pressed the quorum issue and suggested that the second referendum
was not valid. The whole issue ended
up with the ombudsperson and the
student court.
At press time, the student court
has not reached a decision. The ombudsperson wisely recommended to
formulate a quorum requirement
before any future referendums, not
Other issues
• UBC students are concerned
about the university's investments in
Shell Canada. Seventy-nine percent
of that company is owned by Royal
Dutch Shell, which has over $500
million worth of investments in
South Africa and is in fact the sole
supplier of fuel to the South African
military and police.
Students for a Free South Africa
put up a "shanty-town" across from
David Strangway's office to dramatize their concern.
Dr. Strangway condemned apartheid in South Africa, but disputed
the connection between Shell Canada and apartheid.
•The environment is a concern
with everyone these days, and UBC
students are no exception. The
Ubyssey printed one article taking
the AMS to task for still using styro-
foam cups and plates in their food
Another article focused on the
Surplus Equipment Recycling
Facility which was created last year
to extract income from the resale of
old and unused campus equipment.
They have extended their mandate
and proposed a waste recycling
project, and a giant yard sale sometime during the 75th anniversary

Air Canada The University
and the
Copper Town
UBC students studied
and worked at the old
copper mine at
Britannia Beach for much
of its 70 year history.
Now, UBC researchers
are sifting through the
rubble of that once great
mine, piecing together a
fascinating story.
he old Britannia copper mine, with its enormous ore concentrator towering 20 metres above the Squamish highway, is
less than an hour's drive from UBC. Mine workshops line the
base, and a network of service tunnels burrow far into the
mountainside beside it.
First mined in the early years of the century, by  1928
Britannia was reckoned the largest copper producer in the
British Commonwealth. After producing more than 50 million tons of copper, and employing more than 60,000 people
over its years of operation, it closed forever in 1974.
Earlier this year, partly through research efforts at UBC, the copper
mine at Britannia became the first mine in Canada to be recognized as
a national historic site.
"Whether we're talking about physical size, technology or the ethnic
make-up of its workforce, the mine was a unique operation," says Dr.
Charles Humphries, a UBC political science professor, and a member of
the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
The Britannia mine has played a part in the lives of many UBC mining
engineering and geology students who spent their summers working to
bring out the copper ore. For most, it was the first working mine they ever
"Britannia was one of those places where a great many people cut
their teeth," says Dr. Harry V. Warren, a past president ofthe B.C. and
Yukon Chamber of Mines, and honorary professor in the department of
Geological Sciences. 'The mine was just stiff with UBC students. They
were mucking, and mining, and of course, a lot of them got to be shift
bosses and higher ups."
Warren is known as "the father of bio-geochemistry" (analysis of
vegetation to indicate minerals that might be found underground) and.
at 85. is still doing research at UBC. He has just had his 197th paper
accepted for publication. As a UBC undergraduate, he originally visited
Britannia in 1926 as an actor and props manager in a touring production
of George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" for Freddie Wood's famous UBC
Players Club.
According to Warren, many of Canada's leading miners got their start
at Britannia. Among them was a young UBC rugby captain and mining
and metallurgy student, C.G. McLachlan, who later became chief
metallurgist at Noranda Mines. There was little research and development done in the industry during those years, but McLachlan astounded
the mine manager by improving the way copper ore is refined in acid
baths and separated from other minerals.
"McLachlan's new flotation method made history," recalls Warren.
"He was just a bright student who worked in the mill during the summers
and he was very keen."
14 Chronicle/Winter 1989 Above: Britannia Mine ore concentrator;
below, students pose at Japanese workers'
bunkhouse. The bunkhouse remains intact
after years of disuse
Marilyn Mullan is executive director of
the Britannia Beach Historical Society which
operates the B. C. Museum of Mining at the
Britannia mine. She says, "CP. Browning,
the mine's manager of the day was so impressed with McLachlan that he said as long
as he was manager, there'd always be a job
at Britannia for a mining engineering student. Over the years, mining engineering
students and geology students came here to
gain experience underground."
Today, the 85-year-old mine has become a focus for historical research at UBC
and provides undergraduates with a first
hand look at history.
This research began with UBC history
professor Dianne Newell, a past member of
the museum's board of directors. From 1986
to 1988, Newell, expert in industrial archaeology, had students in her Western Canadian Studies class collect oral histories of
Britannia residents.
"Most students felt when they were
given the assignment that they wouldn't be
able to do it," recalls Newell. 'They felt very
intimidated by the idea of contacting strangers and interviewing them about something
which turned out to be quite an intimate
thing for them. But in having to do it. most
students were really transformed. They
understood how attached people became to
Says Newell, "People who lived at Britannia felt they were part of something important, to be in a mining community, to
face danger, either directly or indirectly, to make the most of your
circumstances, a lot of values that students aren't exposed to
Newell's students eventually collected close to 80 interviews
and research papers which have since been placed with UBC's
Special Collections. Then, through the efforts of Newell Mullan
and others, extensive company records, which had been turned
over to the museum, were also brought to UBC. These records of
company operations at Britannia Mines -- personnel files, medical records, business and administrative correspondence -- are
now being entered into a computer data base. The boxes of files,
some 91 metres long if laid end to end, are a unique record in
Canadian industrial history.
Coding this information is social historian and demographer,
UBC history professor James Huzel. "Given the range of material
on this company town," says Huzel, "it could eventually lead to
one ofthe best studies on a company town in Canada." He adds,
'The company town was a major feature of many areas of the
One of the observations that Huzel has already made is that
the provincial labour force in the early 20th century was far from
culturally or racially homogeneous. Some 50 different ethnic
groups have been catalogued as workers at Britannia. "What
we're finding now is the tremendously diverse background of the
people who ended up working in Britannia," notes Huzel.
Perhaps greater awareness of aspects of provincial history
such as this may help promote greater racial tolerance in
contemporary B. C. society. Another benefit of the historical
interest in Britannia is scholarly research at UBC.

UBC history graduate Logan Hovis,
BA'81, MA'86, wrote the first master's
thesis on the copper mine at Britannia.
Hovis, a onetime miner himself, and
currently a consultant on industrial
history and archaeology, examined the
effect of technological change on mining at Britannia, including the important discovery of that earlier UBC student, C. G. McLachlan.
As the higher grades of copper ore
became exhausted, Britannia mine
operations exploited lower grade ores
and enriched them through techniques
such as flotation technology. Tracing
these developments. Hovis claims.
"Mining became less craft-oriented and
more process-oriented. The engineering problem became more important
than the mining problem."
A number of history students have
since become involved in research at
Britannia or in administering the
museum associated with the site. Sherry
Elchuk, 24, a fourth year UBC education student, now acting curator at the
museum, has worked at Britannia for
the past five years.
"The history is fascinating," says
Elchuk who has just written a thousand letters to former Britannia residents in the hopes of gaining more
information about the community.
"Right now, I'm trying to get a hold of
the people who lived and worked here
- over 60,000 people!"
Bill Allman, 24, with a BA in history, now in his second year of Law at
UBC, began collecting oral histories at
Britannia. "Rather than reading second hand textbook material, you're
going to the primary source. You're
bringing out the stuff for the first time."
Just weeks ago, Hovis, a fourth
year history student, Vern Becott, 29,
and Allman followed the old tramlines
up the mountain and discovered an
intact bunkhouse for Japanese workers at the mine. "The graffiti on the
walls, the names scratched above the
lockers and the rice bowls piled in the
corner," says Allman. "You should have
heard us!"
"Generally, you talk to people in
British Columbia, and history is something foreign and not something that
went on here," says Becott. "Then you
start looking closely at Britannia. It
gives you a real hands-on feeling for
history and it really comes alive."
Gregory Strong is completing an MA at
the Centre for Curriculum and Instruction in the UBC faculty of education.

Looking back on a decade of sport
BC's athletic record in the eighties
is an enviable one. For many people,
the decade will be remembered as the
one in which the UBC Thunderbirds
rose to national prominance on the
football field, winning two Vanier Cups
(1982, 1986) and three Canada West
Championships (1982, 86, 87). But
with a total of 13 Canadian Interuniv-
ersity Athletic Union (CIAU) Championships, numerous Canada West
Championships and even more numerous individual award winners, the
highlights of the eighties covered a
wide range of sports. Here follows a
brief summary of UBC's success in
the eighties.
Men's Basketball - Canada West
Champions in 86-87 after a best of
three upset of the seven time CIAU
Champion Victoria Vikings in perhaps
the most memorable and electrifying
finish seen on the UBC campus since
1972 when the hoop Birds won the
CIAU title at home. UBC head coach
Bruce Enns arrived from the University of Winnipeg in 1985 and was
named Coach of the Year in 1987 by
Sport BC.
Women's Basketball -  UBC  slowly
and steadily improved in the latter
half of the decade following a departmental decision to implement a full
time coach. The team was winless in
86-87 but captured the fourth and final Canada West playoff spot in 1987-
88 with a 6-14 record under Coach
John Ritchie. Former national team
member Bev Smith led the team to the
playoffs again in 1988-89 with an 8-
12 record. Current national team member Misty Thomas takes over in 89-90
and promises to continue the long
road back to the glory days ofthe early
seventies when UBC won three consecutive CIAU Championships (1971-
72, 72-73 and 73-74).
Men's Cross Country - Finished second at the CIAU Championships held
at UBC on November 4. UBC's Carey
Nelson competed for Canada at the
1988 Olympics while Allen Klassen
continues to excell in international
competition, most recently the World
Francophone Games in Casablanca,
Women's Cross Country - UBC's third
place finish in the CIAU Championships November 4 of this year represents their best success in a sport
which was dominated entirely throughout the eighties by Victoria (five titles)
and Western Ontario (five titles).
Women's Field Hockey - One of UBC's
most successful teams in the eighties
with a total of three CIAU gold medals
(1980, 82. 83), three bronze medals
(1984, 87, 89) and one silver (1988).
Melanie Slade and Penny Cooper were
named to the 1988 Olympic team while
Coach Gail Wilson served four years
as an assistant coach with the national team and was named CIAU Coach
of the Year in 1984 and 1987.
Football - Three Western Intercollegiate Football League (WIFL) Championships (1982, 86, 87), three Vanier
Cup appearances, two Vanier Cup
Championships (1982, 86). As we go
to press, there are thirteen former
UBC Thunderbirds active in the CFL.
Coach Frank Smith made guest coaching appearances at several CFL training camps including the BC Lions and
the 1988 CFL Allstar team and was
CIAU Coach of the Year in 1978 and
Ice Hockey - Have not won a Canada
West Championship since   1970-71.
Chronicle/Winter 1989 17 Athletics
Won the prestigious Empress Cup
Tournament in Calgary in 1988. Goal-
tender Carl Repp, who played from
1984-89, was drafted by the LA Kings
and is currently playing pro hockey in
New Haven, Connecticut.
Men's Soccer - won CIAU championship in 1984 and 85 under JoeJohnson
and 1986 and 89 under Dick Mosher.
Mosher was named CIAU Coach of the
Year in 1989. Team went undefeated
in 34 starts against CIAU competitors
between 1985 and 1987. Seven UBC
Thunderbirds played in the CSL during the summer of 1989.
Women's Soccer - Won five consecutive Canada West Championships
(1983, 84, 85, 86. 87) as well as the
first ever CIAU Women's Soccer Championships in 1987. Along with football
and women's field hockey, UBC's soccer teams were the most consistent in
CIAU competition during the eighties.
Men's Swimming - have won only one
national title (1964-65) due to the
dominance in the sport by the University of Calgary who won all but two
CIAU Championships in the eighties.
18 Chronicle/Winter 1989
(U of Toronto won the other two.)
UBC's Kevin Draxinger still holds the
CIAU record in the 200 metre backstroke (1:59:39) while Turlough
O'Hare represented Canada in the
1988 Olympics and continues to
compete internationally.
Women's Swimming - UBC ended
the University of Toronto's six year
domination of the sport with CIAU
Championships in 1984-85 and 1985-
86. Jack Kelso
was named CIAU
Coach ofthe Year
in 1981-82,

Men's Track and
Field - Last year's
bronze medal at
the CIAU Championships represents perhaps
the greatest success of the decade for men's
track and field, a
sport historically
dominated by
Toronto, York
and Manitoba.
The lack of indoor
training facilities
has made it difficult for UBC athletes to train for
CIAU competition which is all

ies,     however,
UBC's Tami Lutz was named the
Outstanding Athlete at the 1985-86
CIAU Championship Meet and still
holds the record she set that year in
the high jump (1.87 metres). UBC's
Jeannie Cockcroft subsequently won
three consecutive gold medals in high
jump (1986, 87, 88).
Men's Volleyball - Won Canada West
Championships in 1983-84 and 1985-
86 and the CIAU Championship in
1982-83. the same year that coach
Dale Ohman was named CIAU Coach
of the Year. Four former Thunderbirds
are currently active on Canada's national team.
Women's Volleyball - UBC has been
consistent throughout the eighties but
has been shut out of CIAU Championship action since 1977-78 when they
won the last of their four CIAU Championships. The sport has been dominated by the University of Winnipeg
who have won six of the last seven
CIAU titles. Currently ranked number
two in the nation. Coach Donna Baydock
was named CIAU Coach of the Year in
Rugby - Not a CIAU sport, however.
UBC's rugby program has been so
successful for so many years, we felt it
worthy of mention. The 'Birds have
been consistent winners in both local
and international competition and have
earned respect in rugby circles in Great
Britain, Australia and the USA, where
they recently conducted two unbeaten
tours against top ranked NCAA teams
and were unofficially named North
American Collegiate Rugby Champions in 1987-88. Won Canadian Championship in November,  1988.

After three days of hard hitting championship soccer, the final whistle signals a national title for UBC.
T-Birds Win Final CIAU Title of the '80s
Jrlead Coach Dick Mosher saunters
around the vacant UBC bench collecting up all the emptied water bottles,
mechanically repeating a post-game
routine for the umpteenth time in his
tenure as the Thunderbird head coach.
As usual, Mosher is unexcited, a trait
not common among head coaches in
any sport. Even at a time
when his spirited charges
are celebrating their fifth
CIAU Championship,
Mosher simply appears to
be glad it's over.
"What a struggle," says
the 1989 CIAU Coach ofthe
Year, who appears a touch
drained following his team's
1-0 victory over the Saint
Mary's Huskies in the Men's
Soccer final November 12 at
T-Bird Stadium. "Three one
goal games (in three days) is
hard on a coach."
Despite being undefeated and ranked number
one in the country going into
the tournament, the road to
the championship was all
out war. UBC knocked off
McGill 1-0 in the quarter
final and the next day was
forced into overtime against
the OUAA West Champion
Laurentian Voyageurs from
Sudbury. With the score tied
at 1-1 at the beginning of
the second overtime period
and complete darkness only
minutes away, Neil Wilkinson scored the winning goal,
vaulting   the   already   ex
hausted Thunderbirds to the Championship final in just 15 hours time.
The T-Birds took 35 minutes to
get the lone goal in the final, a header
from second year medicine student
Ron Village. Although they successfully hung on to the one goal lead, the
rest of the game was nerve racking.
UBC's Markus Felderer (foreground) attempts to set
Pettingale in quarter final action against the McGill
even for Mosher, who was like an
underground nuclear test - everything
on the surface calm, but all hell breaking loose below.
Although UBC appeared to be a
more skillful side, everyone wondered
whether they would simply run out of
gas. Their fatigue resulted in some
chances for St. Mary's, including a hard direct shot
which UBC keeper Rob Zam-
brano barely managed to
deflect wide of the post.
Even Mosher's constant
companion, a thirteen year-
old football sized cock-a-poo
who reportedly has seen
more games from the si-
dleines than most CSL
coaches, had a hard time
controlling herself during the
tense final minutes of the
championship match and
committed an innocent but
unsportsmanlike act on the
"Old Heidi just hates those
one goal games too," laughed
Mosher. finally showing a
glimmer of elation over his
second CIAU title. "She was
just nervous."

CIAU Championship since
UBC's women's team won
the inaugural CIAU Women's

Walk my way..."
Those are three familiar words
from that silky pop ballad of the
fifties which bears the same name
as UBC's newest head coach. Coin-
cidentally, those three words pretty
much summarize the approach to
coaching that former national team
captain Misty Thomas brings to the
UBC women's basketball team. The
only difference is that it is far from
sweet. In fact, the 25 year old native
of Windsor Ontario is deadly serious.
'The team will have had three
coaches in three years, so there are
people who have been advising me
on how to approach the season,"
said Thomas. "For example, (1988-
89 head coach) Bev Smith suggested
that I take it easy on them at first
and give them time to adjust, but
that's just not me. The only way I
can do this is my way.
If I do it my way and we lose,

The fact is that Thomas has
never taken a moderate approach to
anything, least of all the sport which

head coach Jim Bolla. "She was
definitely the hardest worker on our

way - she wants to be the best she
can be."
The study habits which Bolla
referred to resulted in a 3.94 grade

possible 4.0.). She is now nearing

After reading an ad in a Windsor newspaper which read that an
"open" tryout for the women's team
would be held in Windsor, the 4'3",
65 pound killer-diller asked her
father what an "open" tryout meant.
Sensing his daughter's next request,
Paul Thomas relunctantly explained
that "open" meant "anyone." Satisfied that "anyone" included ten year-
olds, the confident, and even slightly
cocky youngster insisted that her
father take her to the try-outs.
"I scored two baskets,"
laughed Thomas recently. "But I felt
sorry for the girl who was defending
against me. I think she just wanted
to make sure I didn't get hurt."

didn't make the team, by the time

what promises to again be an
extremely tough Canada West Conference. Although the "Lady Thunderbirds," as Thomas insists on
calling her team to distinguish them
from their male counterparts, may
have had a bit of a shock to find
that the already intense practise

Gone But Never Forgotten—
Father David Bauer (1924-1988)
It has been almost a year since the
players, coaches, administrators and
alumni of the UBC Thunderbird Athletic program, along with tens of thousands of other Canadians, were
saddened by the loss of a true
Canadian hero. Father David
Bauer, Canada's legendary
hockey and humanitarian figure, passed away November
9th, 1988 following a lengthy
bout with cancer.
Father Bauer is a member of the NHL Hall of Fame
and was awarded the Order of
Canada for his hard work and
dedication to amateur hockey.
He pioneered the notion that
education and hockey could
go hand in hand, a philosophy
that will endure in the institutions and young men that he
influenced. He devoted the
better portion of his life to helping young Canadian men to
use their God - given hockey
talents to help further their
education and better prepare
themselves for life after hockey.
Upon returning from
World War II, Father Bauer
recognized a world in crisis
and devoted his life to the betterment of mankind. He joined
the Basilian Congregation at
Goderich, Ontario in 1946 and
was ordained seven years later.
Bauer was a member of
the 1945 Memorial Cup Champion Oshawa Generals and
declined several offers to become a professional in the original, six team National Hockey
League. While in junior hockey,
Bauer realized that only a chosen few graduated to the professional
ranks. He saw many players who had
dedicated their lives to an NHL apprenticeship and when they failed to
become professionals, lacked the skills
necessary to succeed in life. He recognized this neglect and set out on a
mission to make sure that dedicated
young Canadian hockey players had
something to fall back on after hockey.
Bauer taught ethics at St.
Michael's College in Toronto from 1953
to 1961. While at St. Michael's he put
his education-hockey philosophy into
practise. In 1961, his work with the
St. Michael's hockey program culminated in a Memorial Cup Championship.
After the successful 1961 sea
son at St. Michael's, Bauer was transferred to St. Mark's College at the
University of British Columbia, where
he continued to teach ethics while
doubling as a chaplain at St. Paul's
Hospital. Shortly after arriving in
Vancouver he became involved with
the UBC hockey program and was
instrumental in building the UBC
Winter Sports Centre.
In 1962 Father Bauer took over
as UBC's head coach and promptly
led the Thunderbirds to a Canada
West Championship and the national
final. He also convinced the Canadian
Amateur Hockey Association to base
the Canadian Olympic Hockey Program at UBC. The location and philosophy enabled the players to strive
for excellence in hockey while
furthering their education. The
Olympic program moved to the
University of Manitoba in 1968
and Father Bauer stayed on as
a director. He returned to the
Olympic team in 1980 and was
f-^l afterwards criticized for never
bringing home a gold medal.
For Bauer, however, success
was never measured in gold,
silver or bronze, but in knowing that young men had become good Canadians because
of his guidance.
UBC head hockey coach
Terry O'Malley played for Father Bauer at St. Michael's
College, at UBC and on the
Olympic team. "Father Bauer
was a very personable man,"
said O'Malley. "He made a point
of knowing everyone involved
from the young lady serving
coffee in the concession to the
team's top goal scorer."
Dr. Bob Hindmarch, UBC's
current Director of Athletics
and Sport Services, was Bauer's
UBC and Olympic team manager. "He was one of the finest
people I ever knew," recalled
Hindmarch. "And I'll never
forget one of his fundamental
principles of playing the game
of hockey. He always said
"technique is important, but
let the human spirit prevail.'"
For all who knew and loved
Father Bauer, the spirit which
he humbly exemplified will most
certainly prevail.
Note: The UBC Thunderbird hockey
program, has named a trophy plaque
in memory of Father Bauer. The Father Bauer Memorial Plaque will be
the trophy awarded to the winner
of the Diachem Classic Tournament which will take place at UBC

Chronicle/Winter 1989 21 UBC Real Estate
Blind profiteering or
sound financial planning?
the summer of this year,
UBC launched its first real
estate venture with the clearing of land at the corner of
16th and Wesbrook. Plans for
the site include highrise rental
units, townhouses and lowrise
Residents in the West Point
Grey area were quick to protest the development. They
feared that the project would
have a negative impact on
the west side lifestyle, and that
the project was geared toward profit and not toward the
area's housing needs. They
were also concerned that the
university made no effort to
consult with the community
about its plans.
For its part, the university
sees the development (and
subsequent developments) as
a natural extension of its mandate to raise funds for university programmes. The land,
ceded to UBC in the '50s, was
meant to be used in this manner, and, in any event, is the
university's to use at it sees fit.
We asked both sides of the
debate to state the case as
they see it. Mark Betteridge,
President of the UBCREC explains UBC's position, and
Essop Mia, of the West Point
Grey Resident's Association
presents an alternate view.

The manner in which the UBC Real
Estate Corporation (UBCREC) is proceeding with the proposed "Hampton
Place" development at the corner of
16th and Wesbrook Mall, is, therefore,
an unpleasant surprise to us.

Since then there has been no acknowledgement of the existence widespread opposition to the project in its

responsibility for them lies with the

includes Dr. David Strangway and representatives of the

up a reliable source of funds for capital

UBC real estate assets. UBCREC is a
private company owned and controlled
by the university, and Hampton Place,
by Mark Betteridge
at the corner of 16th Avenue and
Wesbrook Mall, is the company's first
real estate venture.
To provide some history, the University Endowment Lands were originally created to provide a source of
revenue for UBC, but these lands have
never been made available to the uni-

the years there have been many schemes

stage. A "Universities Real Estate Act"
was even drafted but never proclaimed.
Most recently, the entire undeveloped UEL consisting of 2100 acres has
been turned over the Greater Vancouver Regional District to be used as
Pacific Spirit Park. That park was officially opened in the summer of 1989.

     part of the University

the Hampton Place site as "Market

$38 million in the last five years building student housing, much of it imme-

continued from page 23
in the proposed Hampton Place project. We are appalled that at a time
when there is an urgent need of affordable housing for UBC's students, faculty and staff, the university proposes
to build expensive, luxury accommodation. We are mortified that when
global deforestation is a rising concern, our leading post-secondary institution condones logging and slash
burning in order to profit from an
artificial real estate boom.
We are also disappointed that the
university would even consider generating funds in this manner. The B.C.
government has been a notoriously
poor supporter of education and has
allowed our universities to deteriorate
academically and physically. It is the
government's responsibility to fund our
institutions adequately; our universities should be involved completely in
the task of academic excellence, not in
fund raising. By entering the real estate market, UBC is providing the
government with an effective rationale
to minimize further financial support.
UBC does not exist in a vacuum
and every major decision it makes
affects the surrounding community.
The Board of Governors must demon
strate their moral leadership and insist that UBCREC comply with the
guidelines developed in the City of
Vancouver for public consultation.
Although the process of clearing the
land has been completed there is still
time to discuss the project with the
affected communities. UBCREC should
hold as many meetings as are necessary to obtain the opinions of the
community and should use this information to change the nature and scope
of the project. It should also consider
the impact ofthe project on the Pacific
Spirit Park, the needs for services, fire
protection, school capacity and recreational facilities. We believe that on
completing this process the university
will recognize that the needs of neighbouring communities have changed
considerably since the university's
master plan was developed in 1982.
Some of the detailed concerns we
have about the project are:
•There is so little urban forest land
left in Vancouver that its retention
should be jealously guarded.
•A high-density housing development, and particularly three 21 to 26
storey buildings, will dominate the
adjacent parkland and will have a significant negative impact on park users
and the surrounding community.
•There is currently a critical short
age of affordable housing on or near
the campus. The university should be
addressing the desperate need of its
constituents before developing luxury
housing. This would have a more positive impact on future operating fund
requirements of the university, and
help deal with the increasing transportation and air pollution problems in
Greater Vancouver.
•Raising money in this manner undermines the real function of the university, and absolves the government
of its responsibility to support first rate
education in the province.
•The project is expected to yield an
annual revenue of $3.5 million in five
years. This projection is misleading,
because it will be exceeded by the costs
of dealing with the problems created
by the project.
At a general meeting on September
28, 1989 WPGRA passed a unanimous
resolution requesting that UBCREC
suspend all activities on the proposed
Hampton Place project until consultation has been completed with the West
Point Grey and university communities, and any other interested parties.
The "Hampton Place" project is ill-
conceived, not in the best interests of
the university or the community, and
should be discontinued in its current
UBC fulfilling mandate
continued from page 23
diately north of Hampton Place in the
Acadia Camp area. During 1987 and
early 1988, university staff and consultants carried out detailed feasibility
and impact studies for Hampton Place
which were presented at an open
meeting of the Board of Governors in
March 1988. The decision was made to
create the UBC Real Estate Corporation as a private company owned by
the university, and a president was
hired in August 1988. The company is
about to double its staff with the addition of an executive assistant.
The 28 acre site will have ten multi-
family sites for townhouses. low rise
and high rise apartments. UBCREC
will initially act as a land developer and
has been gaining approvals for subdivision and servicing the land. Currently, the proposal is to sell 99 year
pre-paid ground leases on seven of the
ten sites which will pay for servicing
the land and contribute towards the
construction of three rental high rises
to be owned and operated by UBCREC
as part of Hampton Place. The profits
from operating these rental high rises
will be given back to UBC on an annual
basis. In this way, UBC will have an
additional source of capital and en
dowment funding, increasing through
time, and will have an appreciating
asset in the buildings.
During this period, UBCREC will
control the quality of the buildings
built on the seven sites leased to developers to ensure the appropriate image.
A design team will require high architectural standards and independent
consultants will administer the building code requirements. UBCREC will
also spend a large proportion of the
servicing budget on landscaping along
16th Avenue, Wesbrook Mall and along
the internal road. This landscaping
will include hundreds of replacement
trees. UBCREC's landscape architect
will also require detailed plans from
each developer before the developer is
allowed to build to ensure a consistent
theme and high standard.
Hampton Place will increase the
housing stock in the area by between
700 and 800 housing units. Residents
of these homes will pay property taxes
at the same level they would if they
lived in the City of Vancouver, so they
will not be subsidized. Since the mandate of UBCREC is to make money for
the university, the homes will be sold
or rented at market rates.
UBCREC may look at other projects
both on and off the campus, as is the
practice at many universities around
the world. These universities in North
America. Europe and Australia (many
of which are members of the Association of University Real Estate Officials)
have built up real estate portfolios that
have become crucial sources of predictable funding. By using the university's available real estate resources
and acquiring new ones, UBCREC can
provide this kind of funding, and can
become an important factor in the future
growth and development of UBC.
Alumni and other friends of UBC
can become involved in helping the
university develop real estate assets.
There are often practical tax reasons
for alumni to donate real estate to their
alma mater whether it be part of an
estate, a life estate or a straightforward
donation now. The UBC Development
Office and UBCREC can provide advice if such contributions are of interest to you.
UBCREC was created to provide a
new avenue of funding for UBC. As the
university faces the challenges and
opportunities ofthe 21 st century, more
and more creative methods of generating endowment and capital funds must
be developed. UBCREC is just one of
these methods.
Please contact UBCREC at (604)
266-3155 if you have any questions
about Hampton Place, the UBC Real
Estate Corporation or real estate donations to the university.

It is difficult to categorize this man who
throughout the course of his lifetime
was involved in such a multitude of
activities. The title of his autobiography seems to capture his accomplishments: "Jack of All Trades."
At different times in his life he was
a rugby player, a lawyer, chairman of
MacMillan Bloedel, an actor, a cowboy,
a British Columbia Supreme Court justice, a sawyer, a Shakespearean scholar,
a bureaucrat, a royal commissioner and,
of course, the Chancellor of UBC from
1979 to 1985.
At the end of his second three-year term
as Chancellor, he was honoured at a $200 per
plate dinner which was attended by 1000 people.
"He had a full and productive life and we'll certainly miss him," said
current UBC Chancellor Leslie Peterson. "He gave great leadership to the
university as Chancellor. His death is a great loss to the province and the

passed away in Victoria on July 18, 1989. In our complex business world,
finding the competitive edge
that puts your business on top is
critical. That is why most successful companies make Management
Accountants an essential part of
their team.
CMA's are business professionals with a unique background
which combines a solid foundation
in accounting with specialized
management training. And, more
importantly, they bring a business
vision — with the ability to design
and execute innovative plans for
financial success and growth.
Nobody takes care of business
like a CMA.
