A $6-million Pulp and Paper Centre at
the corner of East Mall and Agronomy
Road will soon go to tender.
Construction of the building was
approved last week by the provincial
The centre will be used for graduate
student research and education related to
the pulp and paper industry, said Dr.
Richard Kerekes, director of the centre. In
addition to student research, the building
will house a pulp and paper library, and
teaching laboratories.
The industry will provide about $1
million a year towards the operation of the
centre when it is completed.
Dr. Kerekes is also a division director in
tire Pulp and Paper Research Institute of
Canada (PAPRICAN), the research arm of
the industry. He came to UBC six years
ago to establish a collaborative
postgraduate program between UBC and
He said the UBC Pulp and Paper
Research Centre complements another
PAPRICAN project on campus — a
$15-million PAPRICAN staff research
building, funded by the federal
government. It will be built in the UBC
Discovery Park on Wesbrook Mall.
The emphasis on research and graduate
student education is part of industry efforts
to ensure its longterm competitiveness in
the world market place.
PAPRICAN has also recently made a'
number of fellowships available to
postgraduate students in UBC's new pulp
and paper engineering master's degree
program, as well as to a similar program at
McGill University, with which PAPRICAN
had a long relationship before establishing
a Western Canadian base at UBC.
Conference centres
on new discoveries
in cancer research
Healthy adult mice developed from a
single cancer cell are thriving in cancer
research laboratories. In spite of having
grown from a cancer cell, they are
completely normal.
The mice are part of a series of
discoveries made recently that have
changed scientific thinking on the cause
and treatment of cancer.
Prior to the discoveries, scientists
believed that cancer was always associated
with a mutation or change in the basic
genes making up a cell.
They also believed that anti-cancer drugs
work — when they do succeed in bringing
about a cure — by killing all the cancer
Not so.
The results of recent research stimulated
by the discoveries is the subject of the
second annual Terry Fox Cancer
Conference at UBC from Aug. 1 to 4.
Explaining the discoveries on which the
conference is based was Dr. Joanne
Emerman of UBC's anatomy department, a
conference organizer:
"All of us are, of course, derived from a
single cell formed by the fertilization of an
ovum from our mother by a sperm from
our father. Every cell in our bodies has the
same genes derived from the genes in that
original cell.
"But the different cells of the body use
the genes in different ways.
"A liver and bone cell, for example,
have the same genes. But a liver cell will
only use those genes required for the cell to
function as a liver cell or to produce new
liver cells. The liver cell only expresses —
to use a genetic term — those certain
genes, in the same way that a bone cell
only expresses other genes that permit it to
be a bone cell or to form new bone cells.
"Changes in the expression of genes is
called epigenetics, and the title of the
conference is Epigenetic Regulation of
"Recent research has shown us that a
gene can mutate and turn a cell malignant
without causing a tumor because the
malignant potential of the cell isn't
expressed. Some influence suppresses the
"We also know now that a healthy cell
with normal gene structure can become
cancerous due to a change in the
expression of the normal genes but without
genetic mutation. Again, some influence
has altered expression of the genes. In this
case, the'cell stops its normal functions and
becomes cancerous."
This is how the paradoxical mice were
developed. Researchers injected cancer
cells into a normal, fertilized mouse ovum.
Instead of producing a mouse embryo that
was cancerous, the result was a normal,
healthy mouse. What happened is that the
TV commercial
shot on campus
A Japanese company has been filming a
television commercial on the UBC campus
for the past three days. Shooting was to
end today (July 18).
The commercial features young people
wearing TRAD (for traditional) clothing —
blazers, flannels, ties, etc. — that is sold
by a Tokyo department store.
The company paid a location fee to the
normal fertilized ovum had inhibited the
expression of malignancy.
Dr. Emerman said the conference will
deal with factors involved in regulating
gene expression — those associated in
forming cancer and those involved in
preventing it.
About 250 delegates from around the
world are expected to attend.
Other conference organizers are Drs.
Nellie Auersperg of UBC s anatomy
department, and Connie Eaves of UBC's
medical genetics department and the Terry
Fox Laboratory in the B.C. Cancer
Research Centre.
Dr. Roland Illick, a Middle East
expert from Middle bury College,
Vermont, is teaching at UBC this
summer and will give a free public
lecture at 12:30 p.m. Monday (July
23) in Room 100 of the Geography
Building. His topic will be "Lebanon:
An Analysis of a World Flash Point. "

History repeats itself at Crane
Two students working at UBC's Crane
Library for the Blind this summer under
the provincial government's Youth
Employment Program were repeating
Laurie Bellefontaine, a blind student in
the Department of Linguistics, and Lena
Dal Santo, a sighted second-year French
student, took up the work begun by
Charles Crane, a blind and deaf student
who attended UBC in the 1930s.
When Charles Crane came to UBC there
were no braille books available to him. So
he set about creating his own textbooks
with the help of volunteers and paid
helpers who slowly spelled out the text of
print books into his hand while he
transcribed the material into braille on a
special typewriter. Many of the almost
10,000 braille volumes he left to the library
which bears his name were created in this
This summer Mrs. Bellefontaine and Ms.
Dal Santo spent two months transcribing a
675-page textbook which Mrs.
Bellefontaine will use in a second-year
French course in the fall. Crane Library
has a recorded 'talking book' of the text,
but the tactile braille edition is more
effective for learning spelling and
structure, especially in foreign languages.
The two women, who produced about 35
pages of braille each day, completed the
French text and supplement at the end of
It was all business and few breaks for the
women as they rushed to meet their June
deadline. This made for long and boring
days for Crystall, Mrs. Bellefontaine's black
labrador guide dog. Crystall snoozed away
the warm summer days until quitting time.
Ms. Dal Santo says that having to read
aloud accurately in French has improved
her pronunciation. She hopes the practice
she gained this summer will help her as she
continues her studies in the French
department, which sponsored her for the
She has also learned quite a bit about
braille, and could tell just from watching
Mrs. Bellefontaine type whether she had
made a mistake.
Mrs. Bellefontaine says she has learned a
great deal about transferring print
information into braille, especially
adapting tables so they can be used by
blind students. Although she has used
braille books all her life, she says she has a
new respect for the time and effort
required to create this type of special book.
A second unique YEP project is being
carried out at Crane Library by Enrique
Merkt, a third-year Arts student with a
background in audio recording. He is
reviewing talking books produced before
1975 to determine whether they have
deteriorated in sound quality.
Little is known about the archival
quality of tape recordings — how long they
will last before they fade like old
photographs. Mr. Merkt is particularly
hunting for 'print-through'       echoes of
previous passages leaking through the
windings of reels or cassettes. This is
caused by the magnetic properties of
recording tapes.
When Mr. Merkt finds deterioration, he
uses some of the sophisticated equipment
in the Crane Recording Centre to
electronically restore and enhance the
talking books, a method which is much
cheaper than re-recording these works.
Because of Mr. Merkt and this special
project, the blind and visually impaired
who use Crane Library's unique collection
of talking books will not have to strain
their ears to enjoy some of the classics.

Math wizards come from afar
The IQ level at UBC soared this month
when 80 mathematicians from 14 countries
converged on the campus for a 10-day
conference on algebraic geometry.
The conference, held July 2 to 12 under
the auspices of the Canadian Math Society,
attracted mathematicians from as far away
as India, Australia, Mexico, and Poland.
A series of three lectures were given by
seven principal speakers, and additional
afternoon seminars and one-hour talks
were also arranged.
Conference organizer Dr. James Carrell
says he had no trouble attracting top
people in algebraic geometry to Vancouver.
He described the conference as being of
"very high quality," adding that algebraic
geometry is "probably the most difficult
area in mathematics."
The conference was funded by the
Natural Science and Engineering Research
Council (NSERC). A proceeding of the
conference will be published jointly by the
Canadian Math Society and the American
Math Society.
Elected to the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame last month was this 1945-46 UBC Thunderbirds basketball team. Champions of the

Earlier this summer the vehicles vibrated
their way across some 20 kilometres of
Vancouver Island backroads as part of a
national earth science project called
The interdisciplinary project is a major
initiative that includes geologists,
geophysicists and geochemists from
universities, government and industry.
Principal investigator is Dr. Ron M.
Clowes, professor in UBC's geophysics and
astronomy department.
Object of the work, according to Dr.
Clowes, is to develop a profile of the deep
crust and map the major features
underlying the island.
According to the theory of plate
tektonics developed in the past two
decades, the lithosphere is made up of a
number of plates moving independently of
each other on a bed of partly molten rock,
like a cracked egg shell over a soft-boiled
egg. The plates move away, towards or
along side each other. Most of the world's
earthquakes occur where the plates meet.
Vancouver Island was formed by two
At the controls of a recording truck is UBC geophysicist Dr. Ron Clowes.
Recording equipment in the truck is connected via cable to 4,000 "geophones"
picking up echoes along 10 kilometres of cable on Vancouver Island. Aim of the
project is to detail the earth's crust under the island.
small, separate plates which originated
thousands of miles southwest of the island
in mid-Pacific. They attached themselves
to the west coast of North America about
60 million years ago in a process called
terrain accretion.
The Juan de Fuca plate west of
Vancouver Island continues to move
eastwards onto the B.C. coast at a rate of a
few centimetres per year, curling down
under the plate that makes up the North
American continent.
"When a plate is forced beneath
another, the process is called subduction,"
said Dr. Clowes.
"We want to get a detailed cross section
of the crust beneath the surface of the
island to better understand the accretion
that took place millions of years ago when
the island was formed, and the subduction
that is still going on as the Juan de Fuca
plate passes under the island.
"If we succeed with either objective, we
will achieve a scientific first."
In addition to basic scientific
information, the project has some practical
implications. By identifying faults or large
fractures between rock formations, "we
may be able to determine pre-existing
zones of weakness," he said, "where future
earthquakes could occur."
The studies can also be used by the
mineral and petroleum industries as
background information. Oil and gas
companies will have a better idea of where
not to look for deposits, and mining
companies may know more precisely where
to concentrate their exploration.
"Ore bodies are often associated with
areas in the crust where plates come
together," Dr. Clowes said. "So
understanding the geological architecture
in such places helps us understand why
large deposits occur where they do and
where others might be."
One such region is associated with the
Kapuskasing structural zone in the
Precambrian Shield of northern Ontario.
The region has a high concentration of
Rocks once buried 15 to 25 kilometres
under the earth were pushed up along the
fault line 2.5 billion years ago and are now
at the surface. Lithoprobe will profile a
cross section of the large-scale features
remaining since the uplifting took place in
the Kapuskasing zone.
Source of the $1,150,000 the project will
cost is the Natural Sciences and
Engineering Research Council of Canada
and the federal Ministry of Energy, Mines
and Resources.
Dr. Clowes says that a proposal to
extend the program across all of Canada
over five years and at a cost of $25 million
is being prepared.
"The goals of the extended program
would be the same as those for this
summer — basic scientific information and
practical data related to earthquakes,

This summer, visitors to the world's
largest cyclotron will view how tiny
particles, speeding at up to 75 per cent the
speed of light, are used to kill cancerous
tumors. The tiny particles — called pions
— are used to quickly and efficiently kill
brain and pelvic tumors of patients in the
Batho-Biomedical facility at the TRIUMF
cyclotron site, on the UBC campus.
TRIUMF is" a world-class particle physics
laboratory operated by the universities of
Alberta, British Columbia, Victoria and
Simon Fraser. Scientists come to TRIUMF
from across Canada and around the world
to conduct studies into the nature of
Included in the TRIUMF studies is the
pion cancer therapy project and TRIM —
dedicated to developing safer and more
effective medical radioisotopes.
TRIUMF also assists the UBC PET
project, supplying tiny particles called
positrons which are used to painlessly take
pictures of a living, working brain. Pictures
from the PET scanner are used in the
diagnosis and treatment of tumors and
neuromuscular diseases.
The daily TRIUMF tours include
introductory information on the cyclotron
and a guided walk through the laboratory
complex where particles of atoms are
accelerated up to 224,000 km/second.
Inside the complex, visitors will view the
Meson Hall, where experimenters study
particles that live for a mere 26 billionths
of a second to answer questions about the
ultimate composition of our universe; and
the TRIUMF control room, where the
velocity, direction and destination of the
speeding particles are regulated.
Free TRIUMF guided tours are held
Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. and
2 p.m. Each tour lasts roughly one hour.
Visitors are requested to arrive at TRIUMF
reception, 4004 Wesbrook Mall, UBC

Students gamble that
will attract kids, parents
Two enterprising students from the
Faculty of Arts are gambling that a 'take
part' family arts fair will attract at least
2,000 parents and kids to the Thunderbird
Winter Sports Centre on July 28 and 29.
Wendy Wilkins and Trish Guillou figure
they'll need at least that many to break
even after paying for rental of the centre
and a myriad of other costs.
Advance tickets are available through all
Vancouver Ticket Centre/Concert Box
Office outlets, or may be ordered through
Ms Wilkins at 222-1265. Tickets are $2 for
adults, $2.50 for one-parent families and
$4.50 for two-parent families, arid the
price of admission includes all activities,
games, displays, entertainment and most
workshops. Admission at the door will be
75 cents for children, $3 for adults.
In Wendy Wilkins' words, this is what
the fair is all about:
"It is a unique family festival that will
run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. July 28 and
29, Saturday and Sunday.
"The focus is on participation in a wide
vareity of arts, and all events are for both
children and adults to enjoy together.
"We plan on workshops in the creative
arts — clowning, mime, painting, etc; the
physical arts — tai-chi, dance, baby
massage etc.; the technical arts —
computer graphics, photography, etc.; and
the spiritual arts — meditation, yoga, etc.
"We also plan on speakers in such areas
as family politics, parenting, raising
children for a world of peace, etc., and
speakers will be interspersed with story
tellers, puppeteers and dramatics. Relevant
and fun films will be shown throughout the
"Outside, there will be a wide variety of
games, activities and entertainers.
Costuming, water balloon fights, face-
painting, trampolines, clowns, a hot air
balloon and musicians are all planned.
"There will be more than 100 booths
and displays, with the focus on
participation, and lots of good food will be
"A highlight of the fair will be a parade
at 12 noon on July 28. Come in costume,
decorate your bicycle, bring an instrument,
a dance or a friend and join the parade."
Apart from the need for paying
participants, the two young impressarios
also could use some volunteers to help with
the fair. Contact Wendy Wilkins if you'd
like to take part.
East Asian
masks shown
Smiling, leering, beckoning or beguiling
— more than 100 masks from Korea,
China and Japan are on display at UBC's
Museum of Anthropology in the museum's
major summer and fall exhibition, Hidden
Dimensions: Face Masking in East Asia.
The exhibit, co-sponsored by UBC's
Institute of Asian Research, continues
through October.
The show includes a sampling of the
thousands of masks that have been used,
and are still used today, in East Asia. The
earliest masks are rare Japanese Buddhist
processional masks dating from the 12th
century. Delicately carved Noh masks,
earthy, expressive Kyogen drama masks
and brightly painted contemporary folk
masks of legendary heroes, heroines and
demons are also displayed.
A highlight of the exhibit is a large
selection of gourd and papier mache masks
from the Yangju and Pongsan dance
dramas, two of the most important Korean
traditional folk dramas. These masks have
never been displayed before in the Lower
Throughout the centuries face painting,
another form of masking, has become a
high art form in Chinese opera, involving
thousands of intricate paterns. The
museum display explains these patterns
and associated character roles.
At the show's entrance there is a special
mirrored area where visitors are invited to
try on and play with a mask created for
the exhibit by maskmaker Paul Gibbons. UBC Reports July 18, 1984

Crane needs readers. . .
UBC's Crane Library for the blind is looking for
volunteer readers to record books for blind
students. People with university or professional
backgrounds, especially in law, commerce or the
health sciences are needed to record text and
research books for blind and visually impaired
UBC students. Volunteers should be good verbal
readers, have clear diction and no strong accent.
It is hoped that prospective volunteers can spend
two consecutive hours per week in the Crane
Recording Centre. For the present, Crane
Library operates 8:30 to 4:30, Monday through
Friday. In late August or early September, some
evening or weekend hours may be added.
Becoming a volunteer reader at Crane Library
involves a short audition, a two-hour training
and familiarization session and regular reading
assignments. If you can help, please phone
Crane Library at UBC, 228-6111. Ask for Paul
or Judith Thiele.
