Abreast in a Boat, a dragon boat racing team composed entirely of
breast cancer survivors, including three UBC faculty members, heads
to the World Dragon Boat Races in New Zealand this month. The
original team, which formed in 1996, has been the focus of research
into the relationship between exercise and breast cancer recovery.
Human Kinetics Prof. Don McKenzie of the Allan McGavin Sports
Medicine Centre is the team's head coach.
Proposal could open
gathering place in fall
The former UBC Faculty Club building
will get a new lease on life by late 1998 if
a plan to re-open the building for bistro-
style lunch service goes ahead.
Closed due to bankruptcy in 1994, the
40-year-old building may re-open in October or November as a licensed lunch
facility for students, staff, faculty and
campus visitors.
In its initial phase the proposal would
see a restaurant facility open from 11
a.m. to 2 p.m. as well as 12 guest rooms
re-opened. Building space would also be
available to rent for catered functions.
Re-opening is contingent on the ability
of the University Gathering Place Committee and UBC ancillaries, including
Food Services and Housing and Conferences, to come up with a financial plan to
cover operating costs while also dealing
with the residual $ 1.66-million debt, says
committee chair Chuc k Slonecker.
Other groups involvi :d include the Dept.
of Parking and Transportation/Campus
Security and the profe ssors emeritii who
may gain the use of the former library as
a meeting space.
Slonecker said details still need to be
ironed out, but a recent favourable reception by the university's Board of Governors is encouraging. The facility will aim
to break even initially.
"We're going to take a cautious approach to re-opening the entire building. If
the first phase is successful financially,
we'll consider a second phase that will
bring more of the building into use, includ-

Motion passed:
Consultation required
before gov't events
UBC will not serve as a venue for
another event like APEC without consultation with the campus community,
a motion passed by both the Board of
Governors and Senate states.
"Afull and informed consultative process" is called for in the motion, put
forward by President Martha Piper, if the
university has future opportunities to
serve as a venue for major international
meetings organized by governments.
The motion states that such events
must honour the mission of the university, provide academic and intellectual
benefits and ensure that freedoms of
speech and assembly and other individual human rights are fully protected.
The university has heard many concerns from the campus and the broader
community concerning APEC, the actions of the federal government, and the
RCMP in dealing with the protests held
before and during the APEC leaders'
meeting Nov. 25.
Many of them were aired at a post-
APEC forum attended by more than 250
people at the Chan Centre for the Per-

failure to
protest APEC
Ms. Hinchliffe (UBC Reports, Dec. 11, 1997) notes the
failure of the unions on
campus and the Faculty
Association to question holding
the APEC meeting on campus.
On Sept. 11, 1997 I wrote to
the Faculty Association's president Prof. Robert Blake expressing concern about the failure of
the executive to take a stand on
the university's decision.
Specifically, I asked him if the
executive perceived its responsibilities so narrowly as to think
this matter did not come under
its purview. Or whether it was so
concerned not to offend an
administration so blinded by
ephemeral benefits and potential
favourable (?) media coverage
that it had seen fit to ignore the
disgust that many felt at having
imposed on them the presence of

The university gathering place
will be the subject of an open
forum on Thurs., Feb. 26 from
12:30 - 2:20 p.m. in the former
Faculty Club building.

forming Arts on Jan. 20.
Concerns raised at the two-hour
eventincluded the appropriateness
of holding APEC at UBC, the university's role in security issues and
negotiations with the federal government and RCMP, and the Tibetan flag incident at the Graduate
Student Centre.
Panelists at the forum, which
was moderated by Lynn Smith,
former dean of Law, were President Martha Piper, Law Prof.
Wes Pue, Arnab Guha of the
APEC-University Forum and
Shehnaz Karim and Jill Chettiar
of APEC Alert.
Meanwhile, more than 1,100
pages of documents related to
events surrounding APEC have
been released under the Freedom
of Information and Protection of
Privacy Act. This material is available to the public through the Law
Library in the Curtis Building.
The university is awaiting a

investigations and inquiries into
police actions.
dictators whose behaviour
represents the very antithesis of
the values of a liberal university.
Prof. Blake replied that the
executive had twice considered
the matter and on both
occasions had decided it did
not fall within its mandate.
As I responded to Prof. Blake
at the time, it is quite beyond my
comprehension to see how the
executive could fail to regard the
holding of an APEC meeting on
campus as affecting "the welfare
of faculty members...and of the
University" [the association's
stated mandate].
Even without taking into
account the larger issues
involved, an executive which
has set as one of its priorities
the need for faculty to regain
its proper role in the governance of the university should
surely have recognized in the
past president's failure" to
consult even his Board of
Governors, far less the academic Senate, a gross violation
of the established procedures
of the university.
If the executive of the
Faculty Association could
neither protest this before the
APEC meeting nor the deplorable events that occurred
subsequently, what in heaven's name will they protest?

Nursing homes need
help with oral hygiene
by Hilary Thomson
Staff writer
Many residents of long-term care facilities have undetected oral health problems and staff feel inadequate to help
with oral hygiene, according to a recent
UBC study.
A team of three researchers from the
oral health sciences, nursing and health
services and policy research areas evaluated the oral health programs of care
facilities in the Lower Mainland to determine what makes a program successful
and to find out what dental services are
"We didn't know too much about the
environment of long-term care facilities,"
says team member Michael MacEntee,
professor of Oral Health Sciences. "Learning about needs for this population can
help dentists target resources for residential facilities."
The research team interviewed facility
management, staff, dentists and residents.
They found that facility workers have
trouble squeezing oral hygiene into an
already demanding routine of changing
bed linen and clothing, assisting residents to the bathroom and bathing. Lack
of training for aides and resistance from
some residents, including biting, contribute to inattention to oral hygiene.
The provincial government requires
dental services be available to all facility
residents. These services may include
mobile clinics or an on-site clinic.
These minimal standards of oral health
care are not widely enforced, MacEntee
Four of the facilities studied made no
provision for dental treatment on site;
three had a fully equipped dental clinic;
and the remainder hid mobile dental
equipment, a dental chair or access to a
dentist with mobile equipment.
Researchers found 1 hat no one model
of care was superior. Oral hygiene, diagnostic assessment and dental treatment
all need to be in place; for a successful
But services alone don't guarantee
effective oral health care, the team discovered.
"We found that organizational factors
such as budget, management style and
training were secondary and that individual influence was more significant,"
says research team member Arminee
Kazanjian, associate director of the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research. This points to a policy vacuum
which needs to be addressed by the Ministry of Health."
Fellow researcher Sally Thorne agrees
that the philosophy and people skills of
the facility management were key factors.
"Engaging the staff to pull together
toward the same goal is critical," says
Thorne, a professor in t he School of Nursing. This study suggests that the values
people hold are just as important as any
other aspect of health care delivery."
The researchers hope to include training on dental care outside dental facilities
as part of undergraduate and continuing
dental education.

s the popular song asks, 'Where
have all the cowboys gone?'
lYou sure won't find them in Hollywood, but those who hanker for the
days when westerns ruled the silver screen
should take a look at Tall in 'he Saddle:
\ . _^r^f£~   ~# -~vv. Great Lines from Classic Westerns.
2^Ulbmus^H^mmm^-i   ^he book is the latest collection of
quotable quotes from the movies edited by
UBC Creative Writing Prof. Peggy Thompson and co-author Saeko Usukawa.
Folksy, tough and laced with humour, the movie lines include such gems
• "Draw fast and aim slow," from Tombstone.
• "Sonny, I can see we ain't going to have you 'round long enough to get
tired of your company," from The Law and Jake Wade.
• "I like my coffee strong enough to float a pistol," from Jubal.
And this exchange from The Misfits:
• "He's a cowboy."
"How do you know?"
"I can smell, can't I?"
Thompson and Usukawa viewed 150 westerns — from Stagecoach to
Little Big Man — to compile 350 quotes for the book.
There's really no other way of doing it," Thompson said of the video
marathon, "but because we're such big film buffs, it was a pleasure."
Even so, the authors just scratched the surface of the genre. The western
is as old as Hollywood itself and more than 7,000 have been made, many
during the golden age from the 1930s to the late 1960s.
Although the genre has fallen out of favour in recent years, don't be too
quick to bury it on Boot Hill. The western movie has been declared dead
since its inception, Thompson notes.
"It was said that no one could ever top Thomas Edison's The Great Train
Robbery, one of the first silent films ever made, but the genre always seems
to re-invent itself."
Generously illustrated with lobby card art, stills, posters and ads. Tall in
the Saddle is a sequel to the authors' earlier work. Hard Boikd: Great Lines
from Classic Noir Films.
Will there be yet another book in the "Great Lines" series?
"We're doing science fiction next," confirms Thompson.
Thompson knows a thing or two herself about movie scripts. Her feature
film The Lotus Eaters was nominated for eleven Genie Awards and won
three, including best screenplay. She has also written and produced independent short films and written drama for the stage and radio.

T-bird swimmers leave
rest of West in big wake
UBC swimmers have been making
waves nationally and internationally with
a string of successes that includes the
first ever UBC sweep of the Canada West
University Athletic Association Men's and
Women's Swim Championships.
The teams blew the competition out of
the water in mid-January despite the
absence of top swimmer Mark Versfeld,
who was making it clear to an international field at the World Aquatic Championships in Perth, Australia, that he's a
force to be reckoned with.
Without Versfeld, the men's team overwhelmed the field at the Canada West
championships with an aggregate total of
801 points, leaving defending champion
Calgary floundering in second with 594
and Alberta in third with 537.5. Other
competitors included teams from the
universities of Victoria, Manitoba,
Lethbridge and Regina.
UBC swimmers broke five conference
records in the process including Greg
Hamm's 100-metre backstroke swim of
56.68 seconds.
The women's team, led by record-
breaking performances by first-year sensations Katie Brambley and Amanda
Marin and 1996 Olympic 100-metre but
terfly competitor Sarah Evanetz, narrowly
edged the host Victoria Vikes 582.5 to
569. Calgary finished third with 450.5.
Brambley, an 18-year-old Victoria native, set two meet records with a 4:20.68
performance in the 400-metre freestyle
and a 2:03.50 swim in 200-metre freestyle. Evanetz, the previous record holder
in 200 freestyle and the winner of a total
of 15 gold medals in her three CIAU
national championship appearances to
date, broke the record for 100-metre
breast-stroke with a swim of 1:12.64.
Marin rounded out the record-breaking
performances with a swim of 2:15.07 in
200-metre backstroke.
Meanwhile, Versfeld was making an
international mark by capturing a silver
medal in the 100-metre breaststroke at
the Worlds, followed by a bronze in the
200-metre backstroke. He will rejoin the
UBC team as it sets its sights on the CIAU
Championships in Quebec Feb. 21-23.
UBC narrowly missed its attempt to
capture dual CIAU national championships in 1996/97 when the women's team
won its third consecutive CIAU crown
while the men fell second to Calgary.
Both UBC teams are currently ranked
first in Canada. 4 UBC Reports • February 5, 1998
