recognition by the University and the Senate of the late Walter Henry Gage. 7059.
Wednesday,   October   II,   1978.
Memorial Minute  (continued)
IN MEMORIAM
WALTER HENRY GAGE
Walter Gage began his career at The University of British Columbia when he
entered as a student in 1921. With his Bachelor's degree, and a year later a Master's
degree, he went to teach his subject, Mathematics, at Victoria College in 1927. Six
years later he returned to U.B.C. as Assistant Professor and over the years assumed
increasingly heavy administrative responsibilities, without foregoing that part of
university life that for him was the greatest pleasure and reward - his undergraduate
classes.
He first joined the Senate as the representative of Arts and Science in 1943. He
remained on Senate as a faculty representative, then as Dean of Administrative and
Inter—faculty Affairs and later as Dean of Inter—faculty and Student Affairs. He
assumed the Chair of Senate, first as Deputy President, then as Acting President and as
President in 1969. With his resignation from the presidency in 1975 he completed
thirty-two years on the University's academic governing body.
Throughout his life as teacher and administrator he gave his energies completely
to the University and the students who come to it. Brilliant and popular in the
classroom, Walter Gage was the understandable choice for the Master Teacher's Award
when it was instituted in 1968. Indeed, generations of students learned a great deal
more than mathematics from him. By his example of hard work, dedication, generosity
and concern for others, he provided a model for living which was carried forward into
the community by an Alumni of which he was immensely proud. Those same students
recognized their debt to a friend who for them epitomized the University, and in 1953
Walter Gage received the Great Trekker Award. The University itself honoured him
with a Doctor of Laws, Honoris Causa, in 1958, and in 1971 he was made a Companion
of the Order of Canada.
In over fifty years of service, no aspect of the University's life escaped the
influence of Walter Gage's wisdom. His winsome personality succeeded in preserving
for U.B.C. through a period of remarkable growth a sense of community to which
students, faculty and staff felt they belonged. With his death, our loss is profound, but
the lives of all who have been at the University are the richer for him having been
among us.
The Senate expresses its deep sympathy to his mother, Mrs. Ann Gage and to his
sister, Mrs. Elsie Harvey.
It was agreed unanimously that this memorial statement be spread on the minutes
of Senate and that a copy be sent to the relatives of the deceased.
Senate then paid tribute to the memory of Walter Gage by observing a few
moments of silence.

Arnold Hedstrom -    student representative at-large
Replacements   for   student   representatives  of   the  Faculties   of  Dentistry  and
Science had not been elected at the time of the meeting.
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - subject, where
applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented without formal
reference to the President and the formal agreement of the President; and that the
Deans and Heads concerned with new programs be asked to indicate the space
requirements, if any, of such new programs.
(i) Four-Year Program in Engineering, with the proviso that the program be reviewed
within the next two years, recommended by the Faculty of Applied Science.
(P.7054)

(viii) New course and program changes, recommended by the Faculty of Science.
(P.7056-7)
Prizes, Scholarships and Bursaries
Rev. Burns  )        That   the   new   awards   (listed   in   Appendix 'A')   be
Dr. Lupini    )        accepted  subject  to  the  approval  of  the  Board  of
Governors, and that letters of thanks be sent to the
donors.
Dr. McDowell drew attention to the wording of The Edward James Ashmore
Memorial Bursary which stated that "... To be eligible an applicant must be the
son/daughter of an active member of the Union ...". He felt that such wording would be
unfortunate should the case arise where the parent of an applicant died, as the applicant
would not then be eligible.
The motion was put and carried. 7061.
Wednesday,   October   II,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
The following report concerning the activities of the committee during the
1977—78 Academic Year had been circulated for information:
"The Committee held fifteen meetings during the year.
The major issues discussed were:
(i) new admission requirements for students entering the University from
Grade 12;
(ii) admission and promotion regulations in the faculties of Agricultural
Sciences, Applied Science and Commerce and Business Administration;
(iii) admission requirements of the Yukon Teacher Training Program and the
Native Indian Teacher Training Program;
(iv)    the competency in English of entering students.
There was also consideration of: enrolment restriction in the Faculty of
Education; policy regarding guided independent study courses; the special problem of
the English 100 supplemental examination;  policy concerning handicapped students.
Individual student records were examined in connection with applications for the
Yukon and Native Indian Teacher Training Program.
Appeals from 109 students on rejection of admission or on re-registration were
considered and of these 25 were granted.
The new regulations governing admission of secondary school graduates to the
First Year will not be fully implemented until 1981. However, many of those
admitted this year have presented most of the subjects that satisfy the new
requirements.  For example:
(1) the mathematics requirement and the science requirement, both effective
1981, were met by 97.2% and 99.8%, respectively, of those admitted to First
Year;
(2) the requirement of three courses numbered "12" from the Arts and Science
category, effective 1979, was met by 81.3% of those admitted;
(3) the language requirement, effective 1981, was met by 62.5%;
(4) the full requirements, effective 1981, were met by 47.6%;
(5) of those admitted to the Faculty of Science 92.0% met the 1981
requirements in full with the exception of the second language."
Dr. Finnegan stated that in accordance with the new admission regulations the
standing of students entering the University from Grade 12 this year had been
calculated on the best ten relevant subjects and that approximately 2,900 students
had been admitted on this basis. 7062.
Wednesday,  October   II,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee (continued)
Referring to the regulation to be implemented in September 1979 when applicants
from Grade 12 will require three Grade 12 subjects in addition to English 12,
Dr. Finnegan reported that statistics had been obtained on those students entering
University in 1977 and 1978 and it had been found that out of approximately 3,000
students admitted in 1977 67% had English 12 and three other Grade 12 subjects. In
1978 out of approximately 2,900 students 81% had English 12 and three other
Grade 12 subjects.
Further statistics obtained revealed that in 1977 85% of the students entering
University from Grade 12 had English 12 and two other Grade 12 subjects and in 1978
93% of those admitted had English 12 plus two other Grade 12 subjects. In 1977 95%
of students admitted had Mathematics I I and in 1978 this had increased to 97%. Of
those students admitted in 1977 91% had Science 11 and in 1978 100% had Science 11.
With regard to the language II requirement (to be implemented in 1981) out of
approximately 1,200 students admitted to the Faculty of Arts this year 77% had a
language I I, whereas in the Faculty of Science only 50% of those admitted had a
language I I.
In reply to a query Dr. Finnegan stated that he understood that the University of
Victoria and Simon Fraser University were in the process of examining their current
admission requirements and that it was possible that by 1982 they would not differ
very much from those of U.B.C.
Nominating Committee
Dr. Stager presented the report. At its meeting of September 13, 1978 Senate
passed a resolution to establish a committee to investigate the form of degrees and

Dr. MacDougall  )     Committee be approved.
Carried
Dr. Stager informed Senate that there had been no response to a call for
nominations for a student representative on the Nominating Committee to replace
Bruce Armstrong. In view of the fact that the regular procedures for filling a
vacancy on the Nominating Committee had been adhered to and that no name had
been brought forward, Dr. Stager suggested that the membership of the committee
remain as at present with only one student representative.
Dr. Stager ) That  the membership of the Senate Nominating
Dr. McDowell  ) Committee    for    the     1978-79    Session    remain
unchanged.
Carried
Curriculum Committee  (See Appendix 'B')
Dr. Wisenthal presented the report. The committee recommended approval of
new courses and course changes submitted by the Faculty of Arts; new courses in
Home Economics submitted by the Faculty of Graduate Studies; and a new course,
Mathematics III, submitted by the Faculty of Science. 7064.
Wednesday,  October   II,   1978.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee  (continued)
The committee recommended that the following changes be made in connection
with the submissions from the Faculty of Arts:
Economics 341 - change title from Economic Development in Asian
Perspective to Economic Development of Asia
Double major program - change paragraph under "Third and Fourth Year" to
read: "33 units. 15 units in each of two disciplines fulfilling the major
requirements and 3 units of electives outside the subjects or fields of
specialization."
Dr. Wisenthal ) That  the proposals submitted by the Faculty of
Dean Will ) Arts be approved.
Carried
Dr. Wisenthal   ) That  the proposals submitted by the Faculty of
Dean Larkin     ) Graduate Studies be approved.
Carried
Dr. Wisenthal ) That a new course, Mathematics  III, submitted
Dean Volkoff ) by the Faculty of Science be approved.
It was explained that the course was intended to fill the needs of students who,
although in other Faculties than Science, required a first course in calculus but did
not have the Mathematics 12 prerequisite for Mathematics 100. A proposal to offer a
near equivalent of Mathematics 12 in the form of Mathematics 90 without unit value
was turned down by the Senate earlier on the basis that secondary school level
subjects should not be offered by the University. Since the need for an alternate
route to Mathematics 100 had grown rather than diminished,the Faculty of Science
recommended an expanded form of Mathematics 100 to be called Mathematics III.
This proposed new course would enable a student to bridge the gap of prerequisite
course material and reach the level of Mathematics 100. The Curriculum Committee
recommended that Mathematics III, although given in both terms with 3 hours
lectures and I hour tutorial, be assigned a unit value identical to that of
Mathematics 100, namely 1.5 units.
During the following debate there was a strong representation from the Dean of
Arts that the course carry a unit value consistent with the hours devoted to it, which
would be 3.0 units. In view of the ubiquitous nature of First Year Mathematics it was
agreed that the matter be given further consideration before action be taken by
Senate. 7065.
Wednesday,  October   II,   1978.

Requirements for the Degree of M.L.S. and Organization of the Course
The School of Librarianship requires an acceptable Bachelor's degree as a
prerequisite to admission. The curriculum in librarianship itself is a two
year professional program which calls for the completion of at least thirty
units of credit courses plus such non-credit studies (e.g. field work) as may
be also required. Satisfaction of these requirements qualifies candidates for
the degree of M.L.S. (Master of Library Science).
The first year of the program requires attendance on a full-time basis. The
second year of the program may be taken on a part-time basis and need not
begin immediately after completion of the first year. However, all degree
requirements must be met within a period of five years after initial
registration.
Up to six of the required 30 units should, where possible, be taken in courses
offered by other departments of the university, provided that such workls
judged relevant to the studies in librarianship. Where the candidate has
already taken post graduate work in another department remission may b"e
granted in the elective part of the program up to a maximum of 6 units"/ 7074.

Change in requirements for M.L.S. degree
Requirements for the Degree of M.L.S. and Organization of the Course
(continued)
A student already holding the B.L.S. of an accredited School may apply to be
admitted to the elective portion of the program. Such a student will require
fifteen units of elective courses in order to graduate with the M.L.S. degree.
There may, however, be requirement to take more than the normal fifteen
units if more than five years have elapsed since award of the B.L.S. or if the
B.L.S. courses did not adequately encompass the subject matter of the core
curriculum. This supplementary program must be completed within four
years.
If such a candidate enters with a B.L.S. from the University of British
Columbia the elective courses may be taken by part-time study.
In a case where a student is exempt from the first year of the M.L.S.
program by virtue of any qualification other than a BJ-.S. from the
University of British Columbia the remaining fifteen units of elective
courses must all be taken at U.B.C, and one term, normally 7fe units, must
be completed full-time.
The following is the usual plan of studies:
The work of the first term of the full two-year program comprises a core of
four required courses (7fe units) representing the knowledge that should be
common to all librarians and providing a foundation for more specialized
studies. These courses must be taken as a unit and must be completed
before enrolment in elective courses will be permitted for the M.L.S.
program.
No courses will be approved during the term of the core program in excess
of the 7fe units within the School of Librarianship.
To satisfy requirements for the First Year the student must complete a
further 7fe units which will normally be chosen from elective courses offered
by the School. In the Second Year of the program the requirement calls for
completion of 15 units offered by the School or by other departments of the
University. All courses outside the required core program will be chosen
under guidance from the faculty adviser to ensure proper sequencing and a
balanced program.
