UBC announces China fellowship
A senior scholar from China will
study for four months at UBC under
terms of a special fellowship announced last week by President
Douglas Kenny.
Dr. Kenny said the fellowship,
made available through the Faculty of
Commerce and Business Administration, would bring an English-speaking
Chinese to UBC for the period
September through December this
year, or January through April of

the invitation of UBC and the Bank of
Rong Yiren spoke June 24 at UBC
to a number of B.C. business leaders
who have expressed interest in trade
with China or in investing there. Investment in China is facilitated
through the CITIC.
UBC dean of Commerce Peter
Lusztig said he would like to see the
initial fellowship filled by a senior
scholar in enterprise management or
industrial economics, with Rong Yiren
arranging the selection.
Dr. Kenny said he hoped that the
scholar's visit would lead to subsequent exchanges by younger students

and performing at UBC one afternoon; and a drama poetry reading to
be scheduled one noon-hour.
In addition to those planned and
sponsored by the Summer Session
Association, there are a variety of
other things for you to do at UBC in
the summer.
The Centre for Continuing Education offers summer courses ranging
from a Shakespearean Festival Study
Tour to Ashland, Oregon, to a Couple Enrichment Workshop. The centre also arranges special tours of the
Botanical Garden and the Museum of
Anthropology, and special events such
as a barbecue on Aug. 1 and a garden
party July 22. Call for details and a
brochure: 228-2181.
Rehearsals are underway for the second production of the summer by
UBC's summer stock theatre company, Stage Campus '80.
The group is performing Thomas
Middleton and William Rowley's The
Changeling (no relation to the currently playing film of that name) from
July 9 to 19. The play, directed by Ian
Fenwick, is a Jacobean drama which
"explores the psyche of a beautiful but
unscrupulous woman."
Summer productions are staged in
the Dorothy Somerset Studio located
downstairs in the Frederic Wood
Theatre. The ticket price for adults is
$3.50, for students, senior citizens and
children, $2.50. On Sunday evenings
admission is on a pay-as-you-can
basis. Performances begin at 8 p.m.

UBC heading for academic-year enrolment high
With a record fiscal-year enrolment
already recorded, it now seems certain
UBC is also headed for a record
academic-year enrolment of more
than 33,000 students.
In the fiscal year which ended
March 31, the University boasted a
record enrolment of 32,607 students,
an increase of 2.2 per cent over the
1978-79 fiscal-year enrolment, which
saw 31,895 students attend credit
academic programs at UBC.
Here's an enrolment breakdown on
UBC's last fiscal year enrolment,
which covers the three academic sessions   between   April   1,    1979   and
March 31, 1980:
1979 spring session - 2,757 students;
1979 summer session - 4,153; 1979-80
daytime winter session - 23,161;
1979-80 evening winter session -1,183;
and 1979-80 correspondence -1,353.
TOTAL -32,607.
UBC totals its enrolment on a fiscal-
year basis for the purpose of making
its annual submission to the Universities Council of B.C., which makes
recommendations to the provincial
government on university funding.
UBC also computes its enrolment
on the basis of its academic year,
which runs from Sept. 1 to the follow
ing Aug. 31, for academic-program
purposes. If registration for the current summer session meets an expected 4,200 students, UBC's 1979-80
academic-year enrolment will exceed
33,000 students.
Here's how the 1979-80 academic-
year enrolment breaks down:
1979-80 daytime winter session
-23,161 students; 1979-80 evening
winter session - 1,183; 1979-80 correspondence - 1,353; 1980 spring session - 3.017 [up from 2,757 in 1979]
and 1980 summer session - 4,200
[estimated]. TOTAL -33,014.
UBC's current spring session, which
began April 30, continues until July
31. The 1980 summer session, which
begins today [Wednesday, July 2], will
continue until mid-August.
Also now on the campus for a program that continues until mid-July are
more than 600 retired people who are
participating in a series of non-credit
courses arranged through the UBC
Centre for Continuing Education.
And looking forward a bit, registration for UBC's 1980-81 daytime winter
session will begin Tuesday, Sept. 2,
the day following the Labor Day holiday. Lectures for students in some
UBC professional schools start Sept. 3,
but for most students the 1980-81 winter session will start Monday, Sept. 8. UBCreports

Director named for new
co-ordination office
Robin E. Russell, an 11-year
employee of UBC's Computing Centre, has been appointed the first director of the new University Coordination Office, which will implement the recommendations of a report
on University administrative information systems.
The report, prepared by a four-
member task force headed by Computing Centre director James Kennedy, who has since been named vice-
president designate for University services, made 14 recommendations calling for a major overhaul of UBC's administrative information systems.
Ms. Russell, who was a member of
that task force, will head a staff of five
in revising the present system so that it
will generate timely and accurate information needed for planning,
management and financial reports by
the UBC administration and other
academic units.
Establishment of a University Coordination Office was one of the 14
recommendations made by the task
force. The office will expedite
development of information systems
and communicate with all pajts of the
University on the enforcement of standards in such matters as the encoding
of information and the design of major interdepartmental forms.
The task force also recommended:
• Assignment of top priority to the
development of computer-based personnel information systems for both
faculty and staff employed by UBC
and for the University's purchasing
* Creation of a computer-based
biographical file and lists of publications  by faculty members,  together
with  provision  for easy  annual  updating or as needed;
• Generalization of University
financial systems by inclusion of a new
coding system which can be used to
classify transactions for reporting purposes;
• Preparation of a manual outlining office procedures and services to
meet the needs of staff members; and
• The redesigning of University
forms to reduce their numbers,
eliminate re-typing and re-copying,
and facilitate data entry into the computer.
Ms. Russell, who graduated from
UBC in 1968 with a Bachelor of
Science degree in mathematics, has
held a number of positions in the UBC
Computing Centre, progressing from
a computer programmer to computing analyst to her present position
as the University's database administrator.
As database administrator she has
had responsibility for UBC's administrative data resource, including
data management planning, data access analysis and design, data user
education and co-ordination and data
monitoring and control.
In addition to chairing a number of
committees on computing matters,
Ms. Russell served as chairman of the
president's initiatives for women study
committee on the employment of
women in non-academic positions in
1977 and currently chairs a working
committee on the student service appointment process.
She was associated with the
organization of the Association of Administrative and Professional staff at
UBC and served as association president in 1977-78.
Exam changes recommended
UBC's 12 faculties have been re
quested to report back to Senate by
November on the recommendations
contained in a 14-page report on examinations prepared by a seven-
member ad hoc committee of UBC's
academic parliament.
The report, which has widespread
implications for UBC's larger faculties
and a number of administrative
departments, recommends among
other things that:
• A four- to five-day study period
(including weekends) be inserted between the end of classes and the beginning of exams in December and April;
• The University consider ways of
completing course registration prior to
Labor Day so that lectures can begin
the day following the national holiday
and provide time for a study period in
• Final exam schedules for
December and April be made
available to students prior to registration for the academic year; and
• Exam periods be shortened by
scheduling exams in the evenings and
on Saturdays.
The Senate ad hoc committee on
examinations, which was chaired by
Dr. Lawrence D. Jones of the Faculty
of Commerce and Business Administration, made a total of seven
recommendations in its report.
The committee was established as
the result of a Senate motion approved
in March, 1979, which requested an
examination of the timing and length
of UBC exam periods as well as the
desirability of the recommended study
breaks, the feasibility of linking the
exam schedule to the course schedule,
and policy with regard to students
writing more than one exam in the
same day.
In its report, the ad hoc committee
says the issues that flow from its mandate are "complex and required the
committee to be concerned with many
functions of the University, including
physical space limits, staffing costs,
the course registration system, the
academic calendar and scheduling of
field schools, special seminars and
practica as well as alternative methods
of scheduling both examinations and
course offerings."
Here are the other recommendations made by the committee:
• Departments and schools be requested to review their needs for common examinations with a view toward
eliminating unnecessary common examinations and reducing the number
of course timetable sequences utilized
by multi-section courses offering common examinations, this review to take
place during the 1980-81 academic
• Examination scheduling be based
upon a scheduling method in which
examination groups are populated by
courses with common times in the
course timetable. Additional examination time blocks may be provided for multi-section courses
designated by the responsible department or school as courses for which a
common examination is desirable on
educational grounds. The registrar be
instructed to adopt the 1981-82 examination schedules as the target date
for implementation of this recommendation.
• The administration be requested
to institute an examination of the appropriateness of the standard time sequences presently utilized for course
scheduling with the objective of
developing a set of time sequences
which better fit the needs of the
various faculties and are likely to be
more heavily utilized than the present
time sequences, this evaluation to be
conducted within a time frame that
would permit introduction of any new
time sequence into the 1981-82
Computing Centre's database administrator Robin Russell has been named the
first director of the new University Co-ordination Office, recommended in recent report of Task Force on University Information Systems. For details, see
story below. Alvin Fowler, currently associate director of the Computing Centre, becomes its director on July 1. He succeeds Prof. James Kennedy, who has
been named vice-president for University services. Mr. Fowler's appointment
was detailed in the June 18 edition of UBC Reports.
UBC faculty awarded research grants
Five members of the UBC faculty in
Arts and Education have been
awarded research grants totalling
$64,892 by the Social Sciences and
Humanities Research Council.
The largest single grant went to
assistant professor of economics Peter
Chinloy, who will use $24,101 for a
study entitled "Sequential Search for
Housing in Canada."
Other SSHRC grant recipients
• Dr. Leslie Greenberg, assistant
professor of Education, who was
awarded $16,527 for a project entitled
"Task Analysis of Adult Decisional
• Prof. Peter Suedfeld of the
psychology department, who will use a
$9,835 award for "Archival Research
in Integrative Complexity";
• Prof. Mark Zacher of the Institute of International Relations, who
will study "The Structure of International Economic Decision-Making"
with a grant of $9,586; and
• Dr. Hector Williams, who will
carry out a study of "Late Roman and
Byzantine    Lamps    from    Anamur,
Turkey," where UBC's classics department has carried out extensive excavations of a ruined city over the past
A research team in UBC's Department of Physics has been awarded a
$115,000 PRAI (Project Research Applicable In Industry) grant for
research and development on light
ducts, which will carry a large amount
of light from a high-intensity source to
a distant location.
Light ducts are hollow pipes with
specially shaped plastic walls that act
as very efficient mirrors, thus causing
the light entering the ducts to be
transmitted to the exit with very little
The ducts will have several applications, such as providing light in industrial situations where there is a
potential for explosions, transmitting
solar energy to appropriate absorbers,
interior lighting in large offices and
hospital operating room illumination.
The physics department research
team will work closely with Vortek Industries Ltd. of Vancouver to ensure
the marketability of the project.
Discovery patented through UBC
A UBC chemical engineer has made
a significant discovery affecting the
pulp and paper industry.
Colin Oloman has discovered a new
method of producing hydrogen peroxide which is used as a bleach. The
chemical is replacing some other
bleaches because it is less environmentally damaging.
Hydrogen peroxide is now shipped
into B.C. from the U.S. The price to
Canadian pulp and paper companies
is about $1.10 a kilogram.
Using Mr. Oloman's method, pulp
and paper companies would be able to
produce their own hydrogen peroxide
at the mill site. Cost of the peroxide
might be half that of the imported
The new process has been proven in
large-scale laboratory conditions.
Patents have been taken out through
the University, and a number of
chemical and pulp and paper companies are interested in entering into
an agreement to develop the process
on a commercial scale.
In Mr. Oloman's process, oxygen is
introduced to caustic soda in water.
Electricity is applied and the result is'
hydrogen peroxide, which has one
more atom of oxygen in its molecule
than water.
About six kilowatt-hours of energy
would be needed to produce one
kilogram of peroxide. The reaction
takes place in a reactor under 10 to 20
times normal atmospheric pressure.
Mr. Oloman, an assistant professor
in UBC's Department of Chemical
Engineering, said U.S peroxide producers are increasing their capacity to
meet an anticipated major increase in
demand. He said B.C. mills now use
about 10 tonnes per day, but have a
potential to use up to 100 tonnes per
He said it will be at least two years
before his process is available to
B.C.mills. "This assumes that all goes
well," he said. "At the moment in the
laboratory we are producing one
kilogram a day. And our longest continuous run has been one month.
"A viable commercial unit would
have to produce 1,000 kilograms a day
and be able to run year-round." UBCreports
Student Health Service
now in new hospital
The Student Health Service has
moved into its new home in the Walter
C. Koerner acute care unit on campus. But some of its services will remain in the Wesbrook Building until
they become available in the unit-later
this summer.
X-ray services will continue in
Wesbrook until' the unit's radiology
department goes into operation later
this month. And the student hospital
will remain on the third floor of
Wesbrook until the unit begins
accepting its first patients this fall.
Student emergencies will be
handled by Student Health Service
Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All   other   emergencies,   including
after-hours student emergencies,
should be directed to the third-floor
hospital area of the Student Health
Service in Wesbrook. This emergency
service will continue until the acute
care unit's emergency department
goes into operation this fall.
The Wesbrook hospital emergency
number remains 2525. But the
number for the Student Health Service in the acute care unit is now

Names submitted for research awards
UBC has submitted the names of 22
candidates for a new program of
university research fellowships announced recently by the Natural
Sciences and Engineering Research
Council (NSERC).
Up to 100 of the new five-year
awards valued at $23,500 a year will
be made this summer to "a select
number of very promising researchers
in the natural sciences and engineering" for a potential expenditure of
about $2.35 million in 1980-81.
NSERC says the research fellowships will "assist Canada in the
maintenance of university research
and development and in the provision
of an adequate supply of promising
and highly qualified researchers in
Canadian universities to help meet the
expected increased demand for new
faculty appointments in the early
1990s caused by an increased retirement rate of existing faculty and increased student enrolments."
Candidates for the awards must
hold a doctoral degree in the natural
sciences or engineering and have
qualifications and experience equivalent to that normally required for appointment to the rank of assistant professor.
The first awards will be made by
Aug. 31. NSERC fellows will be provided with an annual operating grant
for an initial establishment period of
up to three years.
Details on the program are
available from UBC's research administration    office, 228-3652.
Others invited to attend Botany meet
About 1,000 plant-science experts
from all parts of the world are expected at UBC July 12-16 to attend
Botany 80 — the third combined
meeting of the Canadian Botanical
Association and the Botanical Society
of America.
The five-day meeting will include
day-long symposiums on such topics as
plants and the native Indians of North
America, plants and energy, and
shoreline enhancement, rehabilitation
and restoration.
UBC organizers said many of the
topics to be discussed would appeal to
teachers and researchers who are not
directly involved in botanical studies,
including anthropologists, oceanogra-
phers, ecologists, foresters, home
economists, food scientists and
Detailed information on the Botany
80 program is available from the UBC
