Dr. Anthony Phillips
Top award
for brain
Dr. Anthony G. Phillips of UBC's
psychology department is one of four
outstanding young Canadian scientists
who have been awarded E.W.R.
Steacie Memorial Fellowships by the
Natural Sciences and Engineering
Research Council of Canada.
The fellowships, one of Canada's
most prestigious awards, are designed
to permit faculty members to devote
one year entirely to research by relieving them of their academic duties.
Dr. Phillips, who currently holds
another leading research award, a
Killam Senior Research Fellowship, is
widely known for his studies in the
field of brain and behavior research.
His research has included studies on
learning and memory as well as the effects of drugs on the brain.
Dr. Phillips joined the UBC faculty
in 1970 and was a visiting professor at
Oxford University in England in
1975. He is .a member of the grant

Students will construct
playgrounds in Athens
Twenty second- and third-year
students from UBC's School of Architecture left Vancouver for Athens
early in January to take part in a
Greek-government project related to
the United Nations' International
Year of the Child.
The students and assistant architecture professor John Gaitanakis will be
in the Greek capital until the end of
April to carry out a proposal made in
1973 by Mr. Gaitanakis to close off a
number of streets in central Athens
and create pedestrian malls and
playgrounds for children.
The Greek ministry of public works
has now decided to implement the
1973 proposal as part of its contribution to the International Year of the
Child by closing 265 streets to create
play areas for children.
The Greek government contacted
Mr. Gaitanakis in 1978 to ask if the
UBC school could assist in the design
and construction of the play areas.
The UBC school decided to respond
to the request as part of a credit course
— Architecture 460 — entitled "Study
of Architecture Abroad" which provides students with opportunities to
undertake supervised studies in "a
particular city or locality in which a
unique quality of architecture and
specific architectural problems are to
be found."

government's decision to create
children's play areas in central Athens

set up
UBC has taken another step to implement a 1978 report that calls for a
radical reorganization of services provided to students on campus.
A new 13-member standing advisory committee on student services,
including four students appointed by
the Alma Mater Society, met for the
first time yesterday (Jan. 16) under the
interim chairmanship of Prof. Erich
Vogt, UBC's vice-president for faculty
and student affairs.
Formation of a standing advisory
committee was one of 15 recommendations made by an eight-member
presidential advisory committee
chaired by Dr. Ruth White of the
Department of French. The presiden-»
tial committee completed its report
last May.
Prof. Vogt said the terms of
reference of the new standing advisory
committee would be those recommended by the presidential committee
— to advise on policy matters dealing
with services to students, to see that
services to students are carefully
planned and assessed, and to consider
other matters raised by the committee's chairman.
Prof. Vogt said one of the committee's first tasks will be to draw up a job
description for the position of assistant
to the vice-president for faculty and
student affairs, who will chair the new
standing advisory committee.
The presidential advisory committee recommended the appointment,
by July 1, 1979, at the latest, of a
"senior person with administrative experience and appropriate academic
background, who would provide
creative and vigorous leadership to the
various campus agencies concerned
with student services," and who would
be "responsible for general supervision
and co-ordination of all such offices."
Prof. Vogt said it would be important for the new standing advisory
committee to define clearly the function of the new appointee so that there
will be no doubt about which areas of
student services he or she will be
responsible for.
"Counselling of students will be one
area of major concern," Prof. Vogt
said. "Academic, career and personal
counselling are functions that are carried on in a number of UBC offices,
including Student Services, Housing
and by the Registrar's Office. The
presidential committee recommended
the creation of a counselling centre
that would provide facilities for
general and special counselling."
(UBC's administration has already
decided that in any new counselling
arrangement, the Women Students'
Office will have special status because
of a number of unique problems facing women on campus. The director
of the Women Students' Office will
report directly to Prof. Vogt and not
through the new position of assistant
to the vice-president.)
Prof. Vogt said the committee
would be asked to look at the possibility of consolidating a number of student services under one roof. "Personally," he said, "I'd like to see the
Women Students' Office, the Office of
Student Services and the Student
Awards Office located close together
physically. That possibility may exist
and I'd like to see the standing committee explore it."
The new committee will also be
asked to advise on the recommendations made in the presidential committee's report that have not been
acted on, Prof. Vogt said. "Some of
the fine detail of the presidential committee's report may not be acceptable
to the standing advisory committee,"
he added, "but I don't think it was intended that the original recommenda-

UBC first in Canada to
offer undergrad degree
UBC will be the first university in
Canada to offer an undergraduate
degree in oceanography as the result
of a Senate decision to change the Institute of Oceanography to a department in the Faculty of Science.
The institute, established 30 years
ago in the Faculty of Graduate
Studies, has been a "stunning success," Graduate Studies dean Prof.
Peter    Larkin    told    Senate    at    its
Kids can get
low-cost dental
care at UBC
Children needing dental care are
now being accepted by UBC's Faculty
of Dentistry.
Every year children receive comprehensive dental care for a small fee
as part of the Faculty of Dentistry's
teaching program. The children are
treated by third- and fourth-year dental students, who are supervised by
registered dentists with special
qualifications in pediatric dentistry.
The emphasis is on the highest quality
of care, and the prevention of dental
For a maximum of $30 a year, each
child will receive comprehensive care
including fillings, extractions and
other work that is necessary. Last year
more than 500 children received these
services. Anyone interested should
phone 228-5668 for more information.
UBC is also involved in developing
new ways of preventing and treating
dental diseases. One procedure being
tested is the use of sealants to prevent
decay from starting on new teeth at
the back of the mouth.
A thin plastic material is placed on
the chewing surfaces. By sealing the
pits and small grooves, bacteria and
plaque are less likely to start the decay
Application cards
must be returned
No application, no degree.
That's the word this week from officials in the Registrar's Office, who
point out that it's the responsibility of
students who intend to graduate this
year to apply for their degrees.
Application for Graduation cards
are being mailed to students in the
following bachelor's programs: arts,
fine arts, music, commerce, elementary and secondary education,
physical education, recreation education and science. Students in the licentiate in accounting program will also
receive cards by mail. If cards fail to
arrive, check with the Registrar's Office to see if it has your correct mailing
Students in the graduating year of
all other degree programs, except
graduate studies, can obtain cards in
faculty offices. Graduate students can
obtain them from their faculty advisors.

December meeting. Now that it is fully matured, he added, it seems appropriate that it should become a
department offering an undergraduate degree.
He said the decision to implement
the change had been under discussion
for three years since being recommended by a review committee. The
change had been "exhaustively"
discussed in the institute and by a joint
committee of the Faculties of Science
and Graduate Studies, which recommended that Science should accept
Oceanography as a department. Both
faculties had given approval to the
proposal, Dean Larkin said.
Science dean Prof. George Volkoff
said his faculty was happy to welcome
a well-organized group into Science,
many of the members of which are
already in the faculty. The change was
appropriate, he said, because Dr.
George Pickard, the present director
of the institute, was retiring in 1979.
(The new head of Oceanography is
Prof. Stephen Calvert, currently
senior principal scientific officer at
England's Institute of Oceanographic
Sciences, who joins the UBC faculty
on July 1, 1979.)
Dean Volkoff said the main consequence of the change is that the new
head will take his place among the
nine other science department heads
as a matter of course, rather than as
an invited guest as was now the case. A
member of the department would also
sit on the faculty's curriculum committee, he added.
The University is grappling with the
problem of finding funds to construct
a new Bookstore, President Douglas
Kenny told Senate at its December
He made the comment while replying to questions from Dr. Jon
Wisenthal of the Department of
English, who asked about the disposition of motions passed by Senate in
May, 1977.
A new Bookstore, President Kenny
said, had the unanimous support of a
Senate committee and University-wide
committee that had carried out a
study of the needs of the Bookstore.
He said there had been agreement on
plans for construction of a building
that would go beyond basic needs to
meet the academic and cultural needs
of UBC and the public. "There is still
a problem with the funding of the
Bookstore and we're still grappling
with that," the president said.
Another motion passed in May,
1977, had suggested that the University librarian, and the directors of the
Computing Centre and the University
Press should be added to the
President's Advisory Committee on
the Bookstore. President Kenny said
the librarian and the director of the
University Press had agreed to serve,
but the Computing Centre director
had declined.
The president said he had asked the
Senate nominating committee to suggest the name of a member of Senate
to sit on the president's advisory committee in keeping with another motion
passed in May, 1977.
The president said he had discussed
with the two vice-presidents concerned the possibility that responsibility
for administration of the Bookstore
might be transferred from the vice-
president for faculty and student affairs to the vice-president for
academic development.
Both vice-presidents would be
"delighted" if a third vice-president
could be found to undertake the job,
President Kenny said. He added that
the matter was still under consideration.
Breathings is the title of an exhibition of recent works by artist Joey Morgan
currently on display in the UBC Fine Arts Gallery in the basement of the Main
Library. The 40-odd canvases, some double-sided, and free-hanging "corselets"
are made, among other things, from bird netting, plastic sheeting, plaster, cement, kitty litter, camel hair, dried weeds, various fabric samples, glass beads
and bumble bees.

flight to the suburbs."
The UBC group won't be expected
to create play areas in all of the 265
streets to be closed off. That would be
far too ambitious a project for the
UBC contingent to undertake, Mr.
Gaitanakis said.
He said the group will live and work
in a small hotel in central Athens,
where they will design and work on
converting one or two streets into play
areas. The areas created by the
students will serve as models for the
conversion of other streets and also
provide the students with practical
design and construction experience.
Mr. Gaitanakis said UBC had provided some funds to support the project with the students paying their own
living expenses for the four-month
project. He also hopes to make a
videotape of the project for future
teaching purposes in the UBC school.
The UN's International Year of the
Child, which will continue throughout
1979, is designed to focus on the needs
and problems of children in countries

Research Council and chairs a similar
committee for the Natural Sciences
and Engineering Research Council.
Several members of the UBC faculty
were honored recently during the annual meeting of the Association of
Professional Engineers of B.C.
A service award for contributions to
the community went to Dr. Thomas
E. Siddon of the Department of
Mechanical Engineering, a former
alderman in Richmond municipality
who was recently elected to the federal
Parliament for the Progressive-
Conservatives in the riding of
Burnaby - Richmond-Delta.
A Professional Service Award for
contributions to the work of the
association was presented to Prof.
Samuel Lipson, a member of the
faculty since 1946 who retired earlier
this year from his post as head of the
Department of Civil Engineering.
One of two Meritorious Achievement Awards for outstanding work in
a professional or technical field went
to Dr. Borg Madsen of the Department of Civil Engineering for his
research on the strength of wood.
A life membership in the association was conferred on Prof. Emeritus
of Civil Engineering S.H. dejong.
Several UBC faculty members were
on a committee on energy established
by the Association of Professional
Engineers in April, 1977, to prepare a
report that is now in the hands of the
provincial government.
The chairman of the committee was
Dr. S.O. Russell of Civil Engineering.
Other faculty members on the committee were: Dr. E.G. Auld, Physics;
Prof. Ian Warren, Metallurgy; and
Prof. John B. Warren, Physics.
Among other things, the committee
recommended a sustained information program to alert B.C. citizens to
the seriousness of energy problems and
the early commencement of long-
range planning of realistic policies to
ensure future supplies of energy to
meet provincial needs. The report also
urges placing emphasis on reducing
oil consumption, use of oil and
natural-gas revenues for development
of replacement facilities, exploitation
of B.C. coal resources and the adoption of policies to encourage the use of
wood wastes as an energy source.
Dr. J. Keith Brimacombe, Department of Metallurgy, will be in New
Orleans Feb. 20 to receive awards
from two societies of the American Institute of Metallurgical Engineering
for papers he co-authored with
graduate students and which appeared in the September, 1977, issue
of Metallurgical Transactions B.
For a paper describing a
mathematical model of a process for
making iron from iron oxide using
coal in a rotary kiln, Dr. Brimacombe
and Ph.D. candidate "Venkat"
Venkateswaran will receive the 1979
John Chipman Award of the Iron and
Steel Society of the AIME. The
research which led to writing the
paper was supported by the Steel Co.
of Canada.
On the same day, Prof.
Brimacombe and R.G. "Bob"
Barton, who graduated with a
master's degree in metallurgy in 1976,
will receive the Extractive Metallurgy
Science Award of the AIME's Metallurgical Society for a paper on the effect of spontaneous surface motion on
oxygen absorption in molten copper.
Mr. Venkateswaran will also present a paper at the AIME meetings on
New Orleans.
Prof. Margaret Prang, head of
UBC's Department of History, was
awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws (LL.D.) at the fall convocation of the  University of Win-
Where concerts
are part of
the curriculum
If you've ever spent a lunch-hour in
the quiet darkness of the recital hall of
the Music building — wrapped in the
cocoon of your coat, lunch on lap,
while strains of Beethoven or Bartok,
Weisgarber or Wilson give your head
a respite from books and papers,
telephones and typewriters — then
you'll appreciate the contribution of
the Department of Music to UBC life.
That contribution, however, is
more than just the 150 or so public
concerts a year which anyone, UBC
affiliate or not, is welcome to attend.
Those concerts aren't just for entertainment.
"The concerts are of course encouraged in the interest of professional development of faculty
members, but also to provide models
of professional activity by which our
students can be informed," explained
Wallace Berry, head of the music
department since January of last year.
"The first year has been a very busy
one because naturally I've had to learn
a great deal," he said. Dr. Berry came
to UBC from the University of
Michigan and his credentials as a
composer are impressive. Just this past
May, he was recognized by the
American Academy and the Institute
of Arts and Letters for his creative
work. He has also published several
books and articles on music theory.
He's been impressed with the talents
of the music faculty and students during his first year as department head,
but he acknowledged there are still
some needs in the music program.
"We have a very gifted faculty, including a number of very productive
young scholars, performers and composers.
"We also have areas where we need
to .strengthen our offerings and increase the faculty — wind instruction,
vocal coaching and accompanying are
three of importance. Our instruction
in string performance is greatly
strengthened this year by the addition
of Parry Karp, a cellist with a growing
reputation in solo and chamber music
performance. William Benjamin has
also joined us this year. He's a young
music theorist who has already made a
national impact."
Another new faculty member is
pianist Pawel Checinski, who has
received praise from critics in a
number of countries. And several artists and lecturers of note will be
visiting UBC during the year to give
classes and recitals. A course in 19th-
century music will be given by six
distinguished musicologists visiting
UBC for several days each every two
weeks in the spring.
Why are all these acclaimed .musicians coming to Vancouver? Dr. Berry
feels that they come here — and many
stay here — because of what he
termed the "quality of the enterprise,
the increasing quality of the school."
Dr. Berry observed: "There's a sense
of movement toward the realization of
potential that I think is very important
to all of us here."
And Vancouver in general is growing as a music centre with groups such
as the Vancouver Society for Early
Music, the New Music Society and the
Community Music School becoming
part of the scene. UBC co-operates
with all these groups through concerts
and workshops, such as the early
music workshop held on campus in
August of last year.
Gifted students are very much a
part of the UBC music scene. UBC
music students have won the national
Eckhardt-Gramatte competition three
years in a row now; the University
Singers recently placed first in the
mixed voices category of the CBC's national choral competition; students
with international reputations such as
opera singer Judith Forst received
their early training at UBC's music
Of the approximately 250 students
in the department, about half are in a
general music program which will
eventually lead them to teaching, likely in a secondary school setting.
"Some, of course, become
distinguished as performers and composers," Dr. Berry added. Enrolment
is limited because of the cost of instruction, so much of which is
necessarily on an individual basis. All
of the students have had musical
training before being accepted.
"There are schools where the end
result is a diploma attesting to skills in
musical performance." But there's
more to the UBC music department
than training skilled performers only.
"The fact that we're part of the
University is an implicit recognition of
the fact that we believe in the full
breadth of education, embracing intellectual needs as well as practical
skills," he said.
Although music courses form the
major part of a music student's curriculum, there is some room for
courses outside the department. He'd
like to see more interaction between
the music department and other
departments on campus. "The physics
department is contemplating a
physics-of-music course," Dr. Berry
said, and he encourages that kind of
After all, music is a vital part of our
culture, he stressed.

which approves grants for the support
of research in Canadian universities.
They are Prof. Alan C. Cairns, head
of the Department of Political
Science, and Dr. James Russell of the
Department of Classics, who is chairman of the panel.
Dr. Robert Silverman of UBC's
music department appeared with two
of Canada's major symphony orchestras in Dece- -..»•. On Dec. 5 and
