Parking changes yield net increase in spaces
UBC students returning to the campus after a summer away will have
noticed some changes in roads and
parking. The road changes will eventually give better and faster access to
the campus. The parking changes will
make it easier to park your car once
you've arrived.
Over the summer the people in the
UBC Physical Plant department have
been busy creating more than 1,100
new parking spaces on campus for
students, faculty and visitors. The new
spaces range from some additional 450
as a result of an extension to B lot
through to 14 spaces being added by
allowing parking on Wesbrook Mall in
front of the General Services Administration Building for the convenience of visitors.
New construction on the campus
would normally have meant the loss of
parking space, but the new work has
given UBC drivers a net gain of more
This existing section of S.W. Marine will become
dead end road accessible only in this ditection^
when south campus roadwork complete next June
Map shows changes designed to improve access to UBC campus
than 1,100 spaces. New construction
includes the erection by next spring of
a four-level car parking structure to
serve the new Acute Care Unit of the
Health Sciences Centre Hospital; the
new Home Economics Building near
the corner of University Boulevard
and East Mall; access roads to the
Acute Care Unit; and landscaping
near the Aquatic Centre.
Throughout the campus, new parking spaces have been gained either
through creating new lots or making
existing spaces more clearly defined.
The new road construction currently being completed along 16th Avenue
leading to the campus is the work of
the provincial Department of
Highways. Upgrading of the intersection at 16th Avenue and Wesbrook
Mall by the highways department will
connect with work already completed
this summer along Wesbrook Mall by
UBC's Physical Plant. Better access to
the campus from Southwest Marine
Drive is also under way. (See map this
Several changes to campus roadways were completed this summer by
Physical Plant, including work on East
Mall, Wesbrook Mall and Health
Sciences Road. (See map.)
In addition to improvements for
getting to campus by car, some improvements are also in store for bus
users. B.C. Hydro this week, at UBC's
request, initiated several improvements in service for the morning
rush hour during the fall and spring
terms. The improvements, including
better service from Richmond Centre,
the Sea-Bus terminal, and along East
Broadway to UBC, should help UBC
goers get to the campus in the mornings.
Philosopher awarded $1,000 Biely research prize
The University of B.C.'s leading annual research prize has been awarded
to Prof. Jonathan Bennett, a former
member of the Department of
The $1,000 Prof. Jacob Biely Faculty Research Prize is awarded for
distinguished research recently accomplished and published. Prof. Bennett taught at UBC from 1970 until
June 30 this year, when he left Vancouver to accept a research professorship at the University of Syracuse, a
private university in New York State.
A native of New Zealand, Prof.
Bennett was educated in that country
and at Oxford University. He taught
at Cambridge University from 1956 to
1968, when he came to Canada to join
the philosophy department at Simon
Fraser University. He taught there for
two years before joining the UBC
Prof. Bennett is the 11th recipient
of the award, which was established in
1969 by Mr. and Mrs. George Biely in
honor of Prof. Biely, a noted Canadian poultry scientist and a former
member of the UBC faculty and the
brother of Mr. Biely.
Prof. Erich Vogt, UBC's vice-
president for faculty and student affairs said the committee which
screened nominations for the 1979
Biely Prize was not influenced by the
knowledge that Prof. Bennett would
be leaving UBC when they met to consider candidates.
"UBC has had the benefit of his
scholarship for the past nine years,"
Prof. Vogt said. "The distinguished
research for which he has been
honored was accomplished during
that time.
"Both the University and committee
wish Prof. Bennett continued success
as he takes up the challenge of
building a new graduate program as a
research professor at Syracuse."
Prof. Bennett has become widely
known in the world of philosophy in
recent years for his research and
writing in the field of the philosophy
of language.
His book Linguistic Behaviour,
published by Cambridge University
Press in 1976, has been widely praised
by reviewers, one of whom described
Prof. Bennett as "one of the two or
three most versatile, resourceful and
prolific philosophers of his
generation." The same reviewer said
the book was "a major contribution to
the issues of most central concern to
mainstream Anglo-American
philosophy of the moment."
Prof. Bennett has also been praised
for two books on the work of German
philosopher Immanuel Kant
(1724-1804), one of the most influential writers in the history of
philosophy. Prof. Bennett's book entitled Kant's Dialectic, also published
by Cambridge University Press, was
described by one reviewer as "unique,
and one which will scarcely be bettered for a long time in any
Prof. Bennett is also the author of a
large number of articles on various
philosophical topics, including logic
and ethics.

means that if it were mass produced its
unit cost would have been the lowest
of all the entries in the competition.
The UBC car also drew the interest
of officials from General Motors,
which is considering production of an
electric car in the mid-1980s for
general use.
The UBC car is powered by a series
of lead-acid batteries housed in a tunnel that runs down the centre of the
vehicle. They give the car a range of
72 to 80 kilometres if driven at speeds
of up to 95 kilometres an hour.
The car's batteries can be recharged
overnight simply by plugging into a
standard household electrical outlet.
They can be recharged to 85 to 90 per
cent of their maximum capacity in as
little as four hours.
The brains of the vehicle is a computer system that monitors the engine
and the actions of the driver to provide the most efficient operation of the
Other innovations include a direct
current motor that turns the front
wheels of the car and a braking system
that produces some electrical power to
recharge its own power cells.
Funding for the three-year project
was provided by various government
agencies, private industry and interested individuals. The salaries of
the team of eight engineers who put
the finishing touches on the vehicle
this summer for the Detroit competition were provided by the B.C.
ministry of labor through their annual
Youth Employment Program.
Sir Fitzroy Maclean, the famed
Scottish soldier, adventurer and
-writer, will be one of 12 speakers during the fall series of free, Saturday-
night lectures at the University of B.C.
sponsored by the Vancouver Institute.
The institute's fall program begins
Sept. 15 with the Dal Grauer
Memorial Lecture by British energy
and resource expert Amory Lovins
and concludes with Sir Fitzroy
Maclean's talk entitled "Holy Russia"
on Dec. 1.
All institute lectures are held in
Lecture Hall 2 of the Woodward
Building on the UBC campus beginning at 8:15 p.m. A brochure listing
all the lecturers in the fall series is
available from UBC's Information Office, telephone 228-3131.
The institute's fall series covers a
wide range of topics, including the
arts, astronomy, philosophy, medicine
and economics.
Included in the list of speakers is
Jean Erdman, a long-time associate of
famed American dancer Martha
Graham and currently artistic director
of New York's Theatre of the Open
Eye; noted American philosopher
Prof. Robert Solomon of the University of Texas, who speaks on "Emotions
and Human Nature" on Oct. 13; UBC
medical geneticist Dr. Patricia Baird,
whose Nov. 3 talk is entitled "Heredity
and Your Family"; Nobel Laureate
and physicist Prof. Eugene Wigner of
Princeton University, who will discuss
the work of Albert Einstein on Nov.
10; and Canadian economist and
former dean of Arts at UBC Prof.
John Young, now with the International Monetary Fund in Washington,
D.C., who speaks on Nov. 24. UBC reports
Erosion causes and remedies subject of report
Concern about erosion of the Point
Grey cliffs below the University of
B.C. has been voiced in many quarters
since 1935.
In that year, following higher-than-
average rainfall, roughly a third of a
million cubic feet of sand and earth
collapsed into Burrard Inlet to create
Graham's Gully, so-called because it
lies adjacent to the former home of F.
Ronald Graham, which now houses
UBC's School of Social Work.
A pathway beginning at the intersection of Northwest Marine Drive
and Chancellor Boulevard now leads
down through the gully to Tower
Beach at the base of the Point Grey
In the ensuing years, the provincial
government was forced to relocate
Northwest Marine Drive. The only
vestige of the original road remaining
is the spur off Northwest Marine
called Cecil Green Park Road, which
dead ends in the area in front of the
new Museum of Anthropology.
The matter was one of concern to
former UBC president Dr. Norman
MacKenzie, who devoted a section of
his 1962 farewell Congregation address to the erosion problem.
Attempts to control erosion in recent years have included construction
of a spiral storm drain, which carries
runoff from the major part of the built
up area occupied by UBC buildings,
and construction in 1974 of a sand
and gravel berm on Tower Beach.
This latter project was only partially
successful owing to wave action.
However, some of the berm material
remains in place and has been successful in preventing the loss of a considerable quantity of sand from the
base of the cliffs.
A foreshore sand berm on the
southwest face of Point Grey in the
area known as Wreck Beach was
created in 1977 when a suction dredge
deposited more than a quarter of a
million cubic yards of sand on the
foreshore while deepening a barge
basin near the breakwater for the
north arm of the Fraser River.
1. The most serious cause of erosion
on Point Grey is the eating away of
sand at the base of the cliffs by wave
action. Quite simply, waves beating at
the foot of the cliffs undercut the face
and carry away the eroded sand.
Much of it is deposited on beaches to
the east, carried there by the tidal currents that sweep around the Point
Grey headland.
2. Ground water discharged
through the cliff face and surface
water diverted over the top of the cliff
are also major causes of erosion. The
ground-water problem would be less
serious if the geological formation at
Point Grey was universally porous.
However, the ground water now sinks
through sandy layers until it reaches
an impervious layer of clay, which
causes it to flow horizontally until it
reaches the cliff face, where it causes
Another major cause of cliff face
Continued from page one
naghan said Swan Wooster engineers
estimate that it would be approximately 100 years before the building
would be endangered if erosion is
allowed to continue unchecked.
"The University and the Park Board
are very conscious of the special
ecological and environmental aspects,
of the Point Grey beaches," Mr. Connaghan said, "and our basic aim is to
cause as little damage or interference
as possible in the area."
Plan view of Point Grey peninsula shows three zones where erosion control
measures should be taken to control cliff erosion. Report prepared for UBC
committee proposes only minor work in Zones I and III. Major work is proposed
for Zone II between Tower One and geographic point called Point Grey.
failure is frost. During the winter
months the cliff face freezes and
prevents the discharge of ground
water. As a result, the water table rises
until the head of water behind the
frozen face develops enough force to
literally blast the frozen sand layer off
the face.
Surface water flowing over the top
of the cliff also contributes to cliff-face
3. Human activity is also a major
cause of erosion. Throughout the
year, young people and adults alike
reach the beach by climbing down the
cliff face or climb up the face from the
beaches below. Some have even
hollowed out caves on exposed areas of
the cliff. The effect of all this is to
dislodge large quantities of loose sand
which tumbles to the bottom of the
cliff and is swept away by high tides.
There is a sort of chain reaction
resulting from the three major causes
of erosion outlined above.
If there were no toe erosion at the
base of the cliff, the cliff face would
eventually stabilize as the eroding
sand built up to reach what engineers
call the "natural angle of repose."
However, at locations where the
slope bottom is subject to toe erosion
— notably on Tower Beach — the
eroded sand is carried away by waves,
preventing stabilization. This instability travels up the slope preventing revegetation and worsening the effects of ground water and weathering.
The result is an ongoing retreat of.
the clifftop at rates averaging 2,400
square feet per year in front of Cecil
Green Park and the Museum of Anthropology.
Thus, as long as toe erosion is permitted to continue the process is not
self-healing since there is insufficient
cobble rock in the cliff to form a
natural protective barrier, or berm, at
the cliff base.
The report prepared over the past
three years to deal with erosion of the
Point Grey cliffs encompasses a 3.8
mile stretch extending from Spanish
Banks on the north face of the
headland to the boundary of UBC
land on the south face.
Those who prepared the plan have
divided the 3.8-mile stretch into three
distinct zones, related to the need for
erosion control in each area.
Zone I is a 4,000-foot stretch
extending from Spanish Banks to the
first of two Second World War towers
erected as observation posts for ar-
tillary emplacements that were constructed atop the Point Grey cliffs to
protect Vancouver harbor. Almost
2,000 feet to the west is a second
observation tower. The area between
these two landmarks is commonly
known as Tower Beach.
Zone II is a second stretch of 4,000
feet from the first observation tower,
past the second observation tower to
the   geographic   position   known   as
Point Grey. It is in this area that the
need for measures to control erosion is
greatest. Atop the cliffs in this area
are Cecil Green Park, the Museum of
Anthropology and the headquarters of
the UBC Botanical Garden.
Zone III, which includes Wreck
Beach, stretches from Point Grey to
the southern boundary of the campus.
The report proposes only minor
work in Zones I and III.
In Zone I, drainage pipes would be
installed to carry away water seeping
through the cliff face. Areas that have
been eroded would be replanted with
native trees and shrubs to retain its appearance as a natural coastal forest.
It's also proposed to use logs now on
the beach in Zone I to create a series of
barriers that would stop the movement of sand to Spanish Banks.
It's estimated that the work in Zone
I would cost 11,172,000.
Proposals for erosion control in
Zone III are almost identical with
those in Zone I — installation of drain
pipes to carry off water now seeping
out of the cliff face and replanting of
native trees and shrubs where erosion
has destroyed vegetation. Swan
Wooster estimates that the Zone III
work would cost $1,024,000.
It is in Zone II that most extensive
cosmetic work is proposed.
To halt erosion at the base of the
cliff, the report proposes raising the
height of the beach by depositing a
sloping layer of heavy rock along a
1.2-mile stretch. The top of the rock
"protector" would be five feet above
the high tide mark. Acting as a barrier, the rock would receive the impact
of wave energy and prevent the toe of
the cliff from being undercut by wave
action. It would also act as a retaining
wall for falling sand as the cliff face
approaches its natural angle of repose.
In order to stabilize the cliff face in
Zone II, the report makes proposals
for ground water control, for contouring the unstable slopes to their natural
angle of repose and for revegetation of
the slope.
To control ground water in Zone II
it's proposed that 8 inch diameter vertical holes be drilled along the cliff top
to a depth of 175 feet. There would be
a total of 34 wells, each 100 feet apart.
The purpose of the wells is to gather
the water that would normally flow
out of the cliff face. The water collected by the wells would be drained
off at sea level.
To bring the cliff face to its natural
angle of repose — an angle of 32
degrees with the horizontal — the
report proposes that heavy earth-
moving equipment be used to push
the top sand over the cliff.
The slope would be relatively gentle
near the top of the cliff face in the
vicinity of Cecil Green Park and the
anthropology museum. The 32-degree
angle of natural repose would be
achieved farther down the contoured
Once the slope has been established
it would be seeded with tough, native
grasses and planted with shrubs that
would stabilize the newly created cliff
Bicycle and pedestrian pathways
have been suggested along the top
part of the cliff face.
The concept also provides for construction of a major viewpoint at the
top of the slope between Cecil Green
Park and the Museum of Anthropology. This would afford visitors a
panoramic view of the Gulf of
Georgia, Burrard Inlet and Howe
The report also proposes an
upgrading of the existing pathway
that leads down through Graham's
Gully to Tower Beach in Zone II.
The report estimates that the total
cost of the work to be carried out in
Zone II would be $8,286,000. OBCalendar
