Faculty elects Pearse, Greenwood
Resource economist Prof. Peter
Pearse has been re-elected to UBC's
15-member Board of Governors for a
second term of office and Prof. Hugh
Greenwood, head of the Department
of Geological Sciences, has been
elected to the Board for a first term of
Both will serve three -year terms and
were elected from a field of five persons by the faculty to represent them
on the Board. Voting by mail ballot
for the faculty election closed Friday
(Nov. 28) and the results were announced Monday (Dec, 1).
Prof. Pearse, who holds a joint appointment in the Faculty of Forestry
and the economics department of the
Faculty of Arts, was first elected to the
Board in 1978. He is widely known as
one of Canada's foremost resource
economists in the fields of forestry and
fisheries. He has been a UBC faculty
member since 1962.
Prof. Greenwood, who joined the
UBC faculty in 1967 and became head
of geological sciences in 1977, is a
leading scientist known for his studies
of the physics and chemistry of rock
formation. He was the winner In 1969
of one of Canada's most prestigious
awards, the Steacie Prize, then
awarded by the National Research

The Association of Professional
Engineers of B.C. says facilities in
UBC's Faculty of Applied Science
should be "modernized and
expanded" to train more engineers.
And the association, which licenses
engineers to practise in B.C., says it is
not convinced that the most cost-
effective or desirable approach to increasing the supply of engineers would
be the creation of a new engineering
school at this time.
The association's recommendations
for upgrading and expanding UBC
facilities, as well as for a stepped-up
campaign to attract more students into engineering, have been forwarded
to the Universities Council of B.C.,
which is currently considering proposals from both Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria for
the establishment of accredited
engineering schools.
Also in the hands of UCBC is a brief
from the advocacy committee of
UBC's Alumni Association, which
polled 246 engineering firms in B.C.
to determine whether new engineering-training facilities were necessary.
The committee's conclusion — the
survey results do not indicate a great
need for additional engineering-
training facilities.
The APEBC report says that
ultimately other engineering education facilities will be required in B.C.
and makes a number of recommendations for development of the "college
feeder school concept" under which
students at Simon Fraser University
and five community colleges can take
first-year science and first-year
engineering before transferring to the
second year of engineering at UBC.
The APEBC proposes that initially
UVic and Caledonia College in Prince
George be added to the list of schools
offering first-year engineering and
that subsequently colleges and univer-

Tom Moore, production supervisor for film and video in UBC's audio-visual
services department, was a big winner at the 16th Yorkton International Film
Festival in November. He won two Golden Sheaf Awards for a 22-minutc color
film entitled "Ski Cross Country," which was judged the best sport and recreation film entered in the Canadian film festival. The second award was for the
best original musical score for the film. Moore's next production, part of which
will be shot at UBC, is a film on the training of track and field coaches.
New look for UBCR in new year
UBC Reports will be bigger and
(we think) better when it again appears on the campus in January
during the first week of the second
We're expanding the size of each
edition of the paper to eight pages,
which means there will be more
room for news and feature stories
about campus life.
Each edition of the paper will
continue to carry the popular
"UBCalendar" section, which lists
upcoming lectures, seminars,
cultural events and notices of interest to the University community.
And the UBCalendar listings in
each edition will cover a two-week
What this means, in short, is
that we're eliminating the issue of
UBCalendar which currently appears as a single sheet in those
weeks when UBC Reports isn't
published. We've had to make this
change because of escalating printing and mailing costs.
The eight-page paper will be
printed on more common newspaper stock, which will enable us to
make further savings. However,
well be running more stories about
future University directions,
research activities and UBC people.
This increased coverage is the
result of an analysis of a readership
survey conducted by UBC Reports
earlier this year. Readers indicated
they wanted more information on
the topics outlined above.
For those who submit material
for UBCalendar on a weekly basis,
we urge you to plan your speakers
and events in advance so they can
be submitted in time for our two-

Prof. Erich Vogt
to head
Prof. Erich Vogt has resigned from
his position as UBC's vice-president
for faculty and student affairs, effective June 30, 1981.
He will become director of the
TRIUMF project, the nuclear
research facility located on the UBC
campus, on July 1, 1981, after six
months of study leave at similar installations in the United States and
TRIUMF is Canada's largest new
venture in science in the last decade
and is just now entering its most productive initial years. Dr. Vogt said the
opportunity to head the project is "one
of the most challenging and interesting to be given to a Canadian scientist."
Prof. Vogt's resignation will result
in a rearrangement of administrative
responsibilities in the President's Office at UBC.
Vice-president Vogt's duties as vice-
president for faculty affairs will be
transferred to the office of Prof.
Michael Shaw, whose title of vice-
president for academic development
has been changed to vice-president,
academic, and provost.
Prof. Shaw will share responsibility
for faculty affairs with Prof. Robert
Smith, whose title of associate vice-
president for academic development
has been changed to associate vice-
president, academic.
Also reporting to Vice-president
Shaw will be Prof. Peter Larkin, who
was appointed associate vice-
president, research, in October. He
chairs a newly established executive
committee for research administration
and policy.
The rearrangement of duties in the
President's Office also calls for the
future appointment of a vice-provost
for student affairs, who will also
report to Vice-president Shaw.
President Kenny said he had accepted Prof. Vogt's resignation "with
the greatest reluctance."
Prof. Vogt, he said, "has made a
significant contribution to upgrading
the quality of teaching and research at
UBC in his supportive role of aiding
faculties and departments in making
suitable appointments to the UBC
And as vice-president for student
affairs. Prof. Vogt had "been a very
effective catalyst for ensuring that student services are well managed and
responsive to the needs of the University community."

Feasibility study for
Acadia Camp pondered
Symbolic book shelving ceremony is carried out in the reading room of the
Health Sciences Centre Hospital by hospital nursing director Shirley Mermet,
left, and Sharon Young, president of the Health Sciences Student Association
and a fourth-year dietetics student in Home Economics. Students raised $400 at
pre-Christmas skit night and turned it over to the campus hospital for the purchase of books and other material for the reading room used by students and
Record numbers enrol
for continuing education
British Columbians have pushed
registrations in continuing education
programs of the University of B.C. to
record levels.
UBC's annual report on continuing
education shows that registrations approached the 100,000 mark in the
12-month period to Aug. 31, making
the UBC program among the largest
in North America. And much of the
activity took place far from UBC's
Point Grey campus.
Of the 94,421 continuing education
registrations, 49,082 were for "off-
campus" programs — everything
from animal nutrition in Vernon to
dentistry in Cranbrook or trout
culture in Kamloops.
"This is a clear indication that the
University is serving its province-wide
mandate," said UBC President
Douglas Kenny. "When it is viewed
with this fall's record registration of
more than 23,000 full-time students
on the campus, it is clear that higher
education in British Columbia is in a
growth position."
Although continuing education
programs are offered by most faculties
at UBC, the Centre for Continuing
Education is the major vehicle for taking programs and services to the
public at large.
In addition to administering a
growing correspondence program, the
centre offers a broadly-based, year-
round series of activities, including a
free summer program for senior
citizens and certificate programs in
criminology and early childhood
education. The centre's fall and spring non-credit program includes international relations, personal growth
and development, creative arts, social
sciences and pre-retirement education.
The centre sponsors lectures and
programs across the province, and in
the case of the summer program for
seniors it makes it easy for the
'students' to come to the UBC campus. Some 750 retired people took
part in the program this past summer,
and they came from Victoria in the
south, to Prince Rupert in the north
and Revelstoke in the east. There were
39 different one-week and three-week
courses, and the out-of-towners stayed
at a student residence on campus for
$35 a week.
Centre director Jindra Kulich says
UBC's continuing education program
is the most extensive in Canada and
has the most registrations.
"In program scope and creativity,
we can be compared with Minnesota,
Wisconsin, UCLA, USC, Michigan
and the University of California at
Berkeley," he says, "and they are six of
the best in the U.S."
UBC is carrying out preliminary investigations with a view to mounting a
formal feasibility study for development of an integrated housing
package in the Acadia Camp area.
"We have a housing problem that is
particularly  acute  for students with

ceremony set
A ceremony to mark completion
of the $300,000 recording centre in
the Crane Library for the blind
takes place in Brock Hall on Friday
(Dec. 5) at 2 p.m.
The recording centre, which
provides recorded talking books for
the blind and print handicapped,
now boasts nine recording studios
and a variety of equipment for
editing and duplicating tapes.
Crane Library head Paul Thiele
says the recording centre is now the
largest in Canada and contains
equipment similar to that used in
the music recording industry.
More than 15 organizations have
contributed funds for the recording centre, which has been built in
two stages. Contributors include
three foundations, the federal and
provincial governments, and the

played an important role in the creation of TRIUMF, a joint venture of
UBC, the Universities of Victoria and
Alberta and Simon Fraser University.
He has been chairman of TRIUMF's
board of management since the cyclotron started operating in 1974.
As director of TRIUMF, Prof. Vogt
succeeds Dr. Jack Sample, who remains a member of the research staff
of the facility after completing a five-
year term as its director.
Prof. Vogt, who was appointed
vice-president for faculty and student
affairs in 1975, will retain his post as a
full professor in the UBC physics
families," said Prof. Erich Vogt,
UBC's vice-president for faculty and
student affairs. There is also a need
for additional single- student housing
close to the campus.
"There's also another growing
dimension to the problem, and that is
the difficulty in attracting to UBC
bright young faculty members because
of high housing costs in the Vancouver
area," he said. "We also want to look
at the idea of some kind of short-term
accommodation facility for campus
visitors from outside the city.
"Thus what we will be looking at is
a housing project which can help meet
the needs of students with families,
alleviate single-student housing
pressures, and provide some housing
alternatives to younger faculty and
staff members in their low-income
years. The fact that we already own
the land gives us the opportunity to
provide housing which is potentially
more attractive than the off-campus
housing market.
"A workable solution could make a
significant contribution to relieving
the chronic rental housing supply in
the City of Vancouver.
"We want to explore the feasibility
of establishing this kind of housing
combination at Acadia Camp. But a
feasibility study is just that — a
thorough examination of the needs,
the economics — including the very
real problems of financing — and the
human factors involved. We don't
want to get anyone's hopes up for a
quick solution to our problems, but we
want them to know we are seriously
looking at the situation," Prof. Vogt
He added that should such a project
appear feasible, it would be very important to have it provide student
housing which would rent at rates
comparable to those presently charged
for existing Acadia Park units.
"We would also want the area
developed in stages to ensure that existing residents would continue to enjoy comparable housing during the
construction period."
A staged development would also
ensure the continuation of the nine
Acadia Camp day care units which
provide services for about 200 children
of students, support staff and faculty.
The housing units on the 18-acre
Acadia Camp site are almost exclusively former army huts brought to
the campus after the Second World
War to provide housing for married
students and faculty members. The
units house 125 families and rent for
rates ranging from $61 to $256 a

sities be expanded to offer a second
year of engineering education.
These developments, the report
says, "should be accomplished in an
orderly fashion and in total concert
with UBC."
The natural course of development
over the next decade, says the
APEBC, will be that some of the
feeder schools will find themselves
ready to expand into the final two
years of engineering education. "This
process will identify easily the schools
which have the most compelling
reason to make the final step," the
report says.
The APEBC estimates that by 1986
some $28.6 million would be required
for the planning and capital costs of a
new engineering school. In addition,
an estimated $4.7 million would be
needed for operating purposes by
These costs "may not represent the
best return of investment for the province," the report says.
"As a more economic alternative,
UBC could accomodate another 300
undergraduate students in certain
disciplines with their present facilities.
To expand these facilities will require
additional capital and operating investment at UBC. To this must be added funds to support additional
facilities at the feeder colleges to ensure an increase in the supply of
engineering students."
The APEBC says both UBC and the
association should work in concert on
a campaign to attract more engineering students by improving communication to high school students.
The  report  also  recommends the
establishment by the provincial
Ministry of Universities, Science and
Communications of an Engineering
Education Committee, composed of
members from UBC, the feeder colleges and universities and the APEBC.
The EEC would recommend orderly
steps for the development of new
engineering education facilities, compile data on engineering manpower
requirements and undertake a study
of a four-year engineering program in
relation to the professional education
of engineers and the resulting impact
on the engineering profession.
UBC currently offers a five-year and
a four-year program leading to a
bachelor's degree. Only exceptional
students are allowed to enrol in the
four-year program.
However, the Faculty of Applied
Science has approved in principal a
new four-year program which would
replace the existing UBC programs.
The proposal, which must be approved by UBC's Senate, would not come
into effect until 1983 to allow secondary schools to make necessary curriculum adjustments.
Both the APEBC report and the
brief of the Alumni Association's advocacy committee identify the following general trends in the engineering
field in B.C.:
• There is a current shortage of
experienced and specialized
engineers, not new graduates;
• There is an interest in incorporating co-operative education
schemes into present engineering
training programs;
• UBC engineering graduates are
widely accepted in the profession and
are of a standard equal to that of
graduates of other universities; and
• There is a need for additional
facilities to train technicians and
technologists. UBCreports
UBC weaver uses ancient techniques for her art
There's been a resurgence of interest in recent years in the art of
tapestry design and weaving. But today's weavers are still using techniques
that were invented five hundred years
before the birth of Christ, according
to Joanna Staniszkis, assistant professor of Home Economics at UBC and
one of Canada's best-known tapestry
"Indian cultures in South America
were producing incredible, intricate
tapestries as early as the fourth and
fifth century B.C. Most of the techniques we use today were invented
then. I don't think we've ever surpassed the early weavers, even with advanced equipment."
Ms. Staniszkis speaks with authority
on the subject of weaving. Her
tapestries are exhibited throughout
Canada, the U.S. and Europe; she is
commissioned regularly to do works
for public and private buildings; and
she was inducted this spring into the
Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts
for her work as a designer and weaver
of tapestries. (The academy confers
membership on people who are
distinguished in the field of art, architecture and design.)
Ms. Staniszkis sees her acceptance
into the academy not only as a personal honor, but as a victory for weaving as an art. "There is always a controversy about whether weaving is an
art or craft. I think it is both, and my
acceptance into the academy proves
that weaving is definitely seen as an
Ms. Staniszkis' interest in weaving
began in Poland, where she was born,
and raised. After moving to the U.S.
and attending the School of The
Chicago Art Institute, she worked as
an interior design consultant and
made several trips to South America
to study Pre-Columbian textiles before
joining   the   UBC   School   of  Home
Economics in 1969.
She teaches design courses in Home
Economics, including design fundamentals, textile design and interior
design. "I feel that teaching design is
closely tied to my work as an artist,"
she says. "Having contact with other
people helps my work as an artist, and
I find it's exciting to teach Home
Economics students because I am
usually the first one to expose them to
the problems and the rewards of
design. It's a privilege to do that."
One of the dimensions that Ms.
Staniszkis involves her students in is
using natural dyes. "I find that using
natural dyes is a good way to teach
students about color," she says. "A
basic understanding of natural
pigments helps them use commercial
dyes with more wisdom."
Although she has a studio at False
Creek where she does most of her
work, Ms. Staniszkis plans to do a lot
of work in a lab at UBC this year. "I'm
preparing for an exhibition and I
want to do the work here so that my

students can have an artist around to
watch, to see how the elements of
design I've taught them are practically
The exhibition she is preparing for
is a show entitled Three Canadian
Tapestry Artists, which will feature
the works of two other Canadian artists, one from Quebec and another
from Toronto, along with Ms.
Staniszkis' tapestries. It will travel
around Canada for a year and then be
exhibited throughout Europe.
Ms. Staniszkis says she likes working
on a large scale and has a special interest in creating tapestries for public
"I create the tapestry to blend in
with the decor of the building. If a
building is just being constructed, the
architects will tell me the style of the
building, the colors and textures of
the walls and floors, and sometimes
the mood that they want. Then they
leave it up to me to create a suitable
tapestry. They realize that I am an artist and can't be dictated to on every
point of the work."
Ms. Staniszkis begins her tapestries
by doing small sketches to work out
the design and colors she wants. When
she is satisfied with the design, she
enlarges it to the actual size of the
tapestry and fits it on the back of the
loom so that she can use it as a guide
as she does the weaving.
When she works on a large scale it is
usually necessary to have other artists
help "with the weaving, as was the case
with her latest tapestry, which was
commissioned by architects for a new
downtown office tower. The tapestry,
which depicts the Vancouver skyline,
is 30 by 15 feet and took six months to
What is her favorite tapestry?
Ms. Staniszkis looks to the future —
"It's always the next one that's going
to be the best."
Trolley bus plan may founder on road widening
UBC and the Greater Vancouver
Regional District transit authority are
discussing a $1.95 million proposal to
electrify the University Boulevard approach to the campus for trolley buses
and to create a new bus terminus on
the small parking lot adjacent to the
Aquatic Centre.
The GVRD says its proposal would
"dramatically improve the quality of
service to UBC" by allowing the extension of exisiting trolley bus routes to
the campus and would enable the
transit authority to switch 12 to 16
diesel buses to suburban routes.
Two UBC president's committees
on traffic and parking and land use
have had a look at the proposal.
Dr. Kenneth Denike of the
geography department, who chairs
the advisory committee on traffic and
parking, says the fact that his
14-member committee representing
UBC faculty, students and support
and professional staff is "split right
down the middle" on the proposal
probably reflects campus opinion
Despite this, Dr. Denike says the
committee has sent a "guarded"
recommendation to President Douglas
Kenny supporting the transit authority plan "contingent upon University
Boulevard being widened prior to implementation."
The University Endowment Land
Ratepayers' Association has also approved the plan, but wants two feet
added to the roadways on both sides of
the boulevard to create a passing lane
for cars.
The transit authority's proposal
points out that trolley buses are wider
than diesel buses and says there are
two options for accommodating the
trolley buses on University Boulevard:
1. Limit traffic on the boulevard to
one lane each way; or
2. Widen University Boulevard to
allow for two lanes of traffic each way.
The transit authority favors Option
1 as the least-cost option and suggests
that improved access to the campus
via 16th Ave. will take care of those
cars unable to use the boulevard.
The provincial department of
highways estimates that it will cost
more than $3 million to create two
lanes each way and has indicated that
it can't consider undertaking a widening project at this time.
The President's Committee on
Land Use, chaired by Dr. Roy Taylor,
director of UBC's Botanical Garden,
has also had a look at the proposal in
terms of its impact on land use as the
result of the creation of a new terminus.
The Taylor committee looked at
five possible sites for the terminus and
has recommended that it be located
on the Aquatic Centre parking lot site.
"The recommendation," Prof.
Taylor says, "reconfirms a longstanding policy that the central core of
the campus should be pedestrian
oriented and that services such as a
UBC to borrow $6 million for store
two levels. Retail selling space in the
new store will be three times larger
than similar space in the present
building. Architects for the project
are Zoltan Kiss and Partners.
The provincial government has
given UBC permission to borrow $6
million to construct and equip a new
Bookstore, the Board of Governors
was told at its meeting yesterday (Dec.
The approval means that the University will be able to make an early
start on the building, which will be
constructed on the southwest corner of
the East Mall and University Boulevard, immediately east of the Biological Sciences Building.
The Bookstore will be built with
funds borrowed by the University from
a financial institution. The loan will
be repaid out of future Bookstore
The new Bookstore will contain
nearly 6,000 square metres of space on

bus loop should be located on the
periphery of the core."
On the whole, he adds, the committee favors improved access to the campus by public transport to reduce continuing pressure on the University to
create more parking spaces.
The existing bus loop just west of
the Aquatic Centre parking lot isn't
large enough to accommodate the increased number of trolley buses which
would reach the campus under the
GVRD plan and the area can't be expanded because of future UBC planning requirements.
One of the difficulties faced by both
UBC committees is that they have no
jurisdiction or powers of recommendation over the stretch of University
Boulevard that passes through the Endowment Lands between Blanca St.,
where the trolley wires now terminate,
and Wesbrook Mall, the eastern boundary of the campus.
The chairmen of both UBC committees point out that concern has
been expressed about the possible
negative effects of the aesthetics of
University Boulevard as a result of the
electrification proposal.
Some trimming of the branches of
the maple trees that line both sides of
the boulevard would be necessary to
accommodate the poles that will support the trolley wires.
The transit authority proposes to
erect poles with bracket arms attached
to eliminate the need for support wires
spanning the boulevard. The poles
would be surmounted by lights to improve visibility. UBCalendar
