Gears to
turn over
new leaf?
UBC's Engineering Undergraduate
Society showed signs of turning over a
new leaf last week in the wake of their
1980 Engineering Week shenanigans,
which included the traditional Lady
Godiva ride and publication of "The
Red Rag".
On Friday (March 7), eight members of the incoming and outgoing
EUS executive issued a public statement on "future EUS activities" after
meeting for most of the afternoon with
UBC's vice-president for faculty and
student affairs, Prof. Erich Vogt.
The statement by the EUS executive
members said that:
• Future publications efforts
would be directed "toward more professional publications";
• The Godiva ride would not in
future "take place in its present form"
and that discussions would be pursued
with the UBC administration "with a
view to redirection of this event"; and
• The EUS will make efforts to
"enhance its relationship with the
University and the community
through activities such as supporting
next year's engineering Open House
and supporting the development of
the engineering program at UBC."
The meeting between the EUS executive members and Prof. Vogt came
the day after UBC's president, Dr.
Douglas Kenny, announced the appointment of a special sub-committee
of the committee of deans "to examine
the possibility of some kind of University action" against the engineers.
The president said he was disappointed the UBC engineers had once
again offended a wide section of the
community "by distributing a publication (The Red Rag) which is, to say
the least, in extremely poor taste, and
by conducting their so-called Lady
Godiva ride."
The engineers have been repeatedly
warned against this kind of action, the
president said, and have elected to ignore the warnings.
President Kenny has asked Dean
Martin Wedepohl, head of the applied science faculty, to consult with

Team of second-year UBC Law students, Mark Tweedy, left, Geoff Thompson,
standing, and Chris Thomas will be in Washington, D.C., April 16-19 for the
international finals of the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
UBC team was named Canadian representative to the annual event after competing with teams from 13 other law schools in New Brunswick Feb. 29-March
1. Victory by the UBC team marked the first time in the seven-year history of
the Canadian competition that the University of Toronto entry hasn't won the
honor of representing Canada. Students had to appear before a panel of three
judges, including two from Canada's Supreme Court, four times to argue both
sides of a fictitious case involving the law relating to outer space and liability for
damage caused by spacecraft. Same question will be argued at the April finals of
the competition, which is named for a U.S. judge who formerly sat on the International Court of Justice.
Dates set for TA vote
Teaching assistants at UBC
will vote March 20 and 21 on
union certification, with
balloting to be conducted and
supervised by the provincial
department of labor.
Graduate teaching assistants
and those undergraduate academic assistants who have tutoring or marking responsibilities
will vote in Room 164 of the
Buchanan Building. The poll
will be open from 9:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m.
Bob  Grant,  director  of  Em
ployee Relations, said more than
1,000 persons would be eligible to
vote, with a simple majority
needed for certification as local
2278 of the Canadian Union of
Public Employees (CUPE).
He said notices about the
voting are expected this week
from the department of labor and
would be posted across the campus. It then would be the responsibility of individual teaching
assistants and markers to appear
at Buchanan 164 on March 20 or
21 to mark a ballot.
UBC's Board of Governors will be
required to hear for a second time an
appeal from Prof. Julius Kane of the
Faculty of Science against a three-
month suspension without pay imposed by President Douglas Kenny in
April, 1977.
This is the effect of a decision last
week by the Supreme Court of
Canada, which reversed a decision of
the B.C. Supreme Court and quashed
a Board of Governors resolution which
dismissed the appeal by Prof. Kane
against the suspension imposed by
President Kenny.
The result of the Supreme Court
decision is that the UBC Board of
Governors has not yet legally disposed
of Prof. Kane's appeal against the
suspension and must hear it again.
Meanwhile, President Kenny's
suspension of Prof. Kane, which was
not an issue in the courts, still stands.
President Kenny's suspension of
Prof. Kane, a member of the Department of Zoology and the Institute of
Animal Resource Ecology, was imposed on the grounds tht he had made
improper use of UBC's computer and
his National Research Council grant.
Prof. Kane's appeal to the Board of
Governors pursuant to the Universities
Act against the suspension was
dismissed by resolution of the Board
after it had heard Prof. Kane and his
Prof. Kane thereupon petitioned
the Supreme Court of B.C. for an
order that this Board resolution be
quashed, that is, that it was legally invalid and thus of no effect. The
ground for the petition was that President Kenny's continued presence at
the Board during its deliberations on
the matter after Prof. Kane and his
lawyer had withdrawn, was a violation
of the principle of natural justice that
no man could be a judge in his own
The B.C. Supreme Court and the
B.C. Court of Appeal rejected Prof.
Kane's petition, finding that the
Universities Act expressly authorized
the president's presence since it provided that the president is a member
of the Board of Governors "and shall
attend its regular meetings".
Prof. Kane then appealed to the
Supreme Court of Canada, which has
now allowed his appeal, reversing the
decision of the lower courts and
quashing the Board's resolution
dismissing Prof. Kane's appeal.
In doing so, the court said that it
did not find it necessary to deal with
the argument about the president's
presence at the Board's deliberations;
it rested its decision on the narrower
ground that the Board had put some
questions to the president in the
course of its deliberations and in
response the president had provided
the Board with some facts relating to
the suspension.
In the Court's view, this was hearing
further evidence from one party to a
dispute in the absence of the other
and was thus improper.
Health sciences ready for Open House 1980
"Tomorrow's Health Care Today.'
That's the theme of UBC's 1980 Open House on
Friday and Saturday, which this year focuses on the
health sciences.
The two-day event gets underway officially on
Friday (March 14) at 9 a.m., when Dr. Patrick
McGeer, B.C.'s minister of universities, science and
communications, is guest speaker at a brief opening ceremony in the Woodward Instructional Resources Centre.
Open House hours on Friday are 9 a.m. to 9
p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Here are some of the highlights:
• The Anik B satellite will beam Open House
events to regional colleges and cable systems in the
B.C. Interior to demonstrate the use of satellite
communications in health care.
• Visitors will get a sneak preview of the
240-bed Walter Koerner Acute Care Unit, which
will admit its first patients this summer. Other
UBC hospital units — the Psychiatric Unit and the
Harry Purdy Extended Care Unit — will also be
open for inspection.
• Health sciences faculty members and students
will mount dozens of displays in the Woodward
IRC, the Macdonald Dentistry Building and the
Cunningham Building for Pharmaceutical Sciences.
• Some of UBC's top teachers and researchers
will give 18 mini-lectures on health topics on Friday
and Saturday in Woodward IRC.
This issue of UBC Reports includes a four-page
insert which provides more detailed information on
Open House events.
Chairman of this year's Open House is Prof.
C.F.A. Culling of the Department of Pathology.
Vice-chairman is Dr. Sidney Katz of the Faculty of
Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Other members of the organizing committee are:
Mr. Paul Nerland, director of the Division of
Business Administration in the Office of the Coordinator of Health Sciences; Dr. CO. Parkes, Department of Physiology; Mr. Victor Doray and Mr.
Ian Cameron of the Department of Biomedical
Communications; Ms. Annie Wilms of the Alma
Mater Society; Ms. Sharon Young of the Health
Sciences Students' Committee; Ms. Olive Simpson,
School of Nursing; Ms. B.A. McConnell, School of
Rehabilitation Medicine; Ms. Helen Burt, a graduate student in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences; and Dr. Erich Vogt, UBC vice-president for
Faculty and Student Affairs and chairman of the
University's Open House steering committee.
Secretary to the organizing committee is Mrs. Diane Lane of the Department of Pathology. UBCreports

Child Study Centre youngsters also learn
UBC's youngest students couldn't
reach the upper shelves in the book-
stacks of the Main Library and they
might have trouble resting their feet
on the floor while sitting in a lecture.
But they're very comfortable
Indian-style on the braided rug and
they can reach the books in their special three-foot high bookcases over on
Acadia Road.
They number about 80 and the oldest says he's "gonna be six this year."
The braided rug and special bookcases reside in the UBC Child Study
Centre, housed in army huts on the
eastern boundary of the UBC campus.
The centre is a nursery school and
kindergarten, in operation since 1961,
and is used for observing and demonstrating how young people learn.
This University facility is attached
to and financed by the Faculty of Education, but is used by as many as 1,600
students a year from the Faculties of
Medicine, Education, and Dentistry;
the Schools of Nursing, Rehabilitation
Medicine, Physical Education, and
Architecture; and the Department of
In addition, these 80 youngsters between the ages of three and five years
are educated at this facility, while parents, early childhood educators,
teachers, and many others from the
community make use of the centre's
teaching, demonstration, or observation capabilities.
Although there is already a waiting
list long enough to fill next year's classes, anyone may call the centre or
drop by and pick up application forms
to register their children. The centre
staff try to select about one-third children of students, one-third from faculty and staff, and one-third from the
community. Selection is on a first-
come, first-served basis.
The emphasis at the centre is definitely on education. Its director, Dr.
Hannah Polowy, assistant professor of
early childhood education, notes:
"This is an educational environment.
Day care needs to be regarded as a
learning environment — not as 'custodial care'."
Because of this belief, she deplores
the use of terms such as pre-school and
nursery school. "They're loaded terms
meaning children don't learn until
they go to school. We do children an
injustice if we don't look at them as
learners before they reach grade one.
"They are in fact learning, and we
need to know what they are learning
and what we want them to learn.
Adults have to set the environment for
the child; know their goals for the
child; and know what they want the
child to learn. Otherwise we're being
very irresponsible.
"Actually, children can learn anything — physics, astronomy, or chemistry — as long as it is provided at the
level of the child's development," she
Dr. Polowy believes every Canadian
child should have quality day care
provided. At present, provincial legislation provides nothing for youngsters
under three years of age, she noted.
For those over the age of three there
is day care available, but "the majority is just not quality day care, and I
think those running day care centres
would agree with me.
"The adults in charge have a minimum of training, and the physical facilities range from church basements
to community centres. Most are not
set up for children. They're not permanent. They have to fold up each
day in an envelope to make way for
the Boy Scouts or a ladies' tea.
"People will spend hundreds of dollars to raise a dog or a horse, but won't
do the same for a young human being," she concluded.
Dr. Polowy sees the Child Study
Centre's mandate as being the leader
in the field of early childhood education. "If we don't, then who will?" she
She noted that UBC's Child Study
Centre has a reputation across Canada
and internationally for a number of
The UBC centre pioneered in fostering good parent-teacher relationships. "We make parents comfortable
coming to see and participate in their
child's learning environment, and we
hold evening sessions to talk with parents about their child's growth and development," explained Dr. Polowy.
In fact, in 1976 Dr. Polowy was
awarded the Samuel Laycock Memorial Award of the Canadian Parent-
Teacher Federation in recognition of
outstanding service to education, by
fostering co-operation between parents and teachers and promoting understanding between the home and
the school.
She has been involved with the centre almost since it opened, and has
been director for the past two years.
Another unique aspect of the centre
is its attachment to the Faculty of Education, rather than to psychology or
home economics, as at some other universities.
Dr. Polowy believes it is important
that the centre remain in the Faculty
of Education. "More and more people
are realizing the importance of early
childhood education, and Canada is

just getting into it," she explained.
Many European countries have long
recognized the importance of quality
education for the very young, and
have been putting money into educating their young children, she added.
Since a great deal of the educating
is already done when a child enters
grade one, she believes adults should
take more interest in what the child is
learning in the years before first
"I see the Child Study Centre as a
demonstration, observation, and research model," she said.
Although she feels it has been fulfilling that role in the past 19 years, she
does not think it is doing as well in
that role as it could and should.
"A great deal more use could be
made of the Child Study Centre, both
by those on campus, and by the community, if only someone'had the time
to organize," she said.
She pointed out that more faculty
on campus need to know that the centre is there; then someone needs to be
available to orient students who use it
as an observation facility as part of
their course work; and someone has to
be available to answer questions and
help students observe.
In addition, the centre needs an observation space where children would
not be aware of those observing. This
space could be used by parents, university students, and community people such as teachers.
Quality staff need to be retained on
a more permanent basis. "At present
we have to budget very closely. The
teachers in the centre are only employed here for nine months a year.
How can we get a commitment from
them on that basis?" she asked.
More faculty time needs to be made
available for proper administration of
the centre; for demonstration programs to be set up for community
needs; and for the development of
good research programs which ask the
right questions, she maintained.
In the 19 years since the centre opened, there have been changes in programs and in philosophy, but little
change in physical facilities. "We're
held together by layers and layers of
paint," was the wry comment from
Dr. Polowy.
"These buildings were temporary
when we opened in 1961, and they
were temporary when they were put
up for the army about 1942. I think
that reflects our society's views of its
children.  Young children  are at the
bottom of the heap.
"They're just not a priority, and
that's the feeling all across Canada,"
she added.
Despite the temporary nature and
the age of the three buildings occupied by the Child Study Centre, the
play yard is equipped with brightly
painted swings, toys and climbing apparatus, and the nursery and kindergarten rooms are organized and colorful clutters of toys and books, paper
and paints.
There's a busy hum in both rooms
which erupts sometimes into shrieks of
laughter, or breaks into a song or a
rhythmic chant — at the teacher's direction .
While one small boy studiously concentrates on a project in one section of
the room, a small group is gathered
around a table putting on paper their
impressions of a morning's outing.
These are the sort of scenes which
confront the observer. Usually an education student will look for the way in
which the children interact with their
environment and the adults in the
room; how they use the materials
available, how they interact with other
children, and how long they interact
with a person or a piece of equipment.
That is one side of the observation
function of the centre. The demonstration aspect is in the educational
programs which are developed and
used at the centre, and the equipment
and staff used to carry out those programs.
Dr. Polowy is hopeful that in the future the centre will be upgraded as
recommended in a review committee
on the education faculty which reported to President Douglas Kenny a year
That committee's report recommended that "special attention be given to the strengthening of the Early
Childhood Department through new
appointments, reconstruction of the
curriculum, and upgrading of the
Child Study Centre."
At present the Faculty of Education
is in the process of a reorganization
which Dr. Polowy hopes will result in a
higher priority for the Child Study
"UBC has one of the largest education faculties in Canada, so our Child
Study Centre should be one of our faculty's showpieces.
"The report of the review committee emphasizes the importance of early
childhood education. What is needed
now is a facility that shows the University community itself concurs," she

The Health Sciences Centre is
named in honor of the late Dr.
John F. McCreary, who pioneered
in Canada the idea that health
sciences student* should be trained
together so that they know the
strengths and limitations of their
own and other professions.
He knew that many new professions were joining the traditional
foursome of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dentists in providing
health care to Canadians. He anticipated the need for all health
professions to be able 10 work
together as a team. He was the
driving force behind the-creation
of many buildings making up the
UBC Health Science* Centre today.

Other Woodward building displays:
• Posters will illustrate the principles of genetic engineering and the
uses of recombinant DNA;
• Antibiotics and how they combat
bacterial diseases and how viruses invade human cells;
• Immunology and aging.
The WOODWARD BIOMEDICAL LIBRARY, which is part of the
Woodward building, will also be open
to the public. The library contains
more than 208,000 books, monographs and serials for the use of health
professionals and scientists. In the
library's Woodward Memorial Room
is a collection of books on the history
of medicine, many of them rare, and
three tapestries, one of them
manufactured in China showing
Canadian surgeon Dr. Norman
Bethune operating on a Chinese
soldier. The other two tapestries were
manufactured by the Gobelin house in
France and measure 6X 11 feet. One
depicts some 40 figures famous in
medicine, science and philosophy.
The other is a medical and artistic
curiosity. Halfway through the weaving of the tapestry, which depicts some
50 writers and philosophers, the artist
had a stroke. When he resumed work,
his stroke-damaged brain distorted
many of the faces and other features
on the right-hand side of the tapestry.

are welcome to watch dentistry and
dental hygiene students being taught
in the large open area containing 80
dentist chairs. On Saturday, some
eight displays on various aspects of
dentistry will be on view in the area.
UBC stages sneak preview of newest hospital
A sneak preview of Vancouver's newest
hospital, the Walter C. Koerner Acute
Care Unit at UBC, will be part of the
University's two-day health sciences Open
House March 14 and 15.
Contracters are putting the final
touches on the building's interior, installing equipment and landscaping the
grounds, but visitors will be able to see a
patient ward, the emergency department
and a number of specially mounted exhibits.
The new unit, which will admit its first
patients this summer, is named for Dr.
Koerner, a UBC benefactor who has been
associated with the development of UBC's
Health Sciences Centre from its inception. He's currently chairman of the centre's management committee and is a
former member and former chairman of
UBC's Board of Governors.
The acute care unit is one of three
hospital units at UBC. The 60-bed
Psychiatric Unit has been open for 12
years, and the 300-bed Harry Purdy Extended Care Unit received its first patients in 1976.
Together,   the   three   units   form   a
600-bed hospital. But because the units
are three separate buildings, patients and
visitors will not get the feeling of being in
a large, metropolitan hospital. In each
unit, the accent is on intimacy.
The 240-bed acute care unit will be a
community hospital serving the needs of
Vancouverites, particularly those on the
west side of the city. It will also be a
teaching and research hospital with 90
beds reserved for special programs in
clinical investigation. Patients with
unusual or complicated problems will be
admitted to these beds.
The emphasis will be on family
medicine in the new acute care unit, hut
some special areas are expected to
develop. The UBC unit is expected to
become an important centre for research
and for the diagnosis and treatment of
multiple sclerosis. It's also expected to be
a major centre for the study of diseases of
the stomach and intestinal tract and problems of calcium and bone metabolism.
Usually, patients visit doctors in offices
in medical and dental buildings and are
never seen by health sciences students. A
unique feature of the UBC acute care
unit is that doctor's offices will be located
in the unit's medical and surgical clinics
so that students can be involved in patient
Patients, however, will have the right
to choose whether students will be involved in treatment. But based on experience elsewhere, patients are
agreeable to students being part of the
treatment process.
Visitors and patients admitted to the
acute-care unit will find themselves in an
environment that contrasts sharply with
the institutional atmosphere that pervades most hospitals.
Wood and warm colors will predominate in entrance and waiting areas. Indirect lighting will create pools of light in
corridors and patient rooms will have
drapes of the type used in private homes.
The building also incorporates many
energy-conserving features. One of these
gives the building its unique exterior appearance. The downward-sloping windows of the building allow adequate light
to enter the unit's rooms, but shade them
from direct, warm-weather sunlight.
This reduces the need for air conditioning in the summer — which nor
mally costs more than heating the
building in winter.
The acute care unit was built in record
time. When it admits its first patients this
summer, only three years will have
elapsed since the firm of Thompson, Berwick, Pratt and Partners inked the first
lines on the architectural drawings. Construction of the unit was managed by the
Greater Vancouver Regional Hospital
The unit also includes, on its top floor,
facilities for the School of Rehabilitation
Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine and
the School of Nursing in the Faculty of
Applied Science.
The construction of the UBC acute
care unit is part of a larger plan of
hospital construction in the Vancouver
area and is linked to a plan to expand
enrolment in the University's medical
school. New construction, including
research and teaching space for health
professionals, is also taking place at Vancouver General and St. Paul's Hospitals
and on the site of Shaughnessy Hospital,
where a new Children's Hospital and a
new Grace Hospital are being built.

Comments on park plan
welcomed by Board
Honored recently by students and alumni of the Faculty of Commerce for
outstanding teaching were Prof. Kenneth MacCrimmon, left, and associate professor Craig Pinder. UBC graduate Pinder, the sixth Commerce professor to
receive the Commerce Undergraduate Society's Teaching Excellence Award,
was selected from 15 nominees by a student committee that bases its decision on
classroom visits, interviews with students and the study of annual course and
teaching evaluations. Prof. MacCrimmon is the first winner of the faculty's
"talking stick" award established by Commerce alumni to recognize behind-the-
scenes course and program development work in the field of managerial
decision-making. Talking stick, carved by the late Hyacinth David, well-
known west coast artist, is used among Nootka Indians to signify great respect
for the wisdom and words of the holder.
Better food in offing
for residence students
UBC students living in the Place
Vanier and Totem Park Residences
will be eating a little higher off the
hog next year.
A 23 per cent increase in the
residence meal rate, from $3.66 to
$4.50 a day, will enable UBC's food
services department to expand all
aspects of the menu in the two residence complexes, where full room-
and-board is provided.
A food services spokesman said that
students living in residence would
have been faced with a 17 per cent rise
in the meal rate in 1980-81 because of
increased food and labor costs.
The additional six per cent agreed
to by students living in the two residences will mean that a meat dish will
be served every day at breakfast and a
wider variety of entrees and desserts
will be available at all other meals.
The increase in meal rates as well as
increases in room rates and rental
rates    for    accommodation    in    all
Catalogue out
It must be spring! Along with the
crocuses, UBC's 1980 Spring and
Summer catalogue of credit courses is
now out.
More than 300 courses in the
Faculties of Arts, Science, Education,
and Commerce and Business Administration are detailed in the 121-page
supplement to the 1979-80 calendar.
Dr. Norman Watt, extra-sessional
studies director, expects a few hundred more enrolments for the Spring
Session over the 2,700 who registered
last year.
For Summer Session he expects
about 4,200 registrations, the same as
last year.
The Spring Session begins April 30
and runs to July 31, while the Summer
Session begins July 2 and runs to
August 15.
Catalogues are available in the
Registrar's Office.
University residence areas were approved by UBC's Board of Governors
at its March meeting last week.
Room rates in Place Vanier, Totem
Park and the Walter Gage Residence,
where room only is provided, will increase by a flat nine per cent, effective
May 1. Room-and-board rates in
Totem Park and Place Vanier will
next year range from $1,851.18 to
$2,203.04, depending on the type of
Annual rates in the Walter Gage
Residence will be $1,147.16 in the
high-rise tower and $1,209.82 for accommodation in the low-rise unit.
Increases in room-and-board rates
ranging from 14.5 to 16 per cent were
approved by the Board for accommodation in campus residences during
the 1980 summer session.
Effective Sept. 1, rental rates will
increase by eight per cent for accommodation in Acadia Park family residences, made up of apartments in a
high-rise tower, adjacent town houses
and housing on President's Row.
Rents for converted army huts in
Acadia Camp will increase by 10 per
cent, effective Sept. 1.

The sub-committee will be chaired
by Dean Kenneth Lysyk of the Faculty
of Law and also includes in its
membership Dean Joseph Gardner,
Forestry; Dean Peter Lusztig, Commerce and Business Administration;
Dean Peter Larkin, Graduate Studies,
and Dean Cyril Finnegan, Science.
Dean Lysyk told UBC Reports this
week that the sub-committee had not
yet met and was awaiting recommendations from Dean Wedepohl. He
termed Friday's EUS statement
"positive and encouraging."
UBC's Board of Governors says it
welcomes written comments on a proposal to establish a branch of
Discovery Park for high-technology
research on 58 acres of land in the
southeast sector of the UBC campus.
The Board's request for comments
came in a motion passed at its March
4 meeting which asked that the administration "arrange for publication
of the University position with respect
to Discovery Park and indicate in such
articles that the Board of Governors
welcomes comments on Discovery
Park and other matters of public interest or concern "
The Board motion was passed
following the appearance at the
March 4 meeting of a delegation of
five students representing the Student
Representative Assembly research
park committee, which presented a
petition signed by 1,688 persons, including residents of West Point Grey.
The petition, in addition to requesting a moratorium on negotiations and development until the
University holds public hearings on
the establishment of Discovery Park,
also proposed the formation of a
"representative body to provide ongoing input into the planning for and
management of the park from UBC
faculty, students and staff, and from
the community."
In a letter to Martin Lund, chairman of the SRA's research park committee, the Board commended the
committee for its "thoughtful and
well-prepared brief," and said it was
mindful of the committee's request
that University representatives to the
Discovery Park board of management,
when appointed, should be sensitive to
community needs as well as the interests of the University.
The letter from the Board said that
it had concluded after careful consideration of the points raised by the
SRA committee and following a
review of its position in the matter of
Discovery Park that it had met, in the
main, the concerns raised by the committee.
The Board letter to the SRA committee included a copy of a letter written by President Douglas Kenny to the
UBC faculty on Sept. 17, 1979, which
recounted the steps taken by UBC
leading up to negotiations with
Discovery Parks, Inc. on the terms and
conditions under which UBC will lease
58 acres of land for high-technology
Discovery Parks have been proposed
for five B.C. locations, including
UBC. The other sites are at Simon
Fraser University, the University of
Victoria, near the B.C. Institute of
Technology in Burnaby,  and at the
Survey grinds
to halt
The UBC Library's week-long users'
survey ground to a temporary halt
Monday when questionnaires disappeared into the eager hands of
students in larger campus libraries.
Organizers of the survey have set the
presses rolling printing more questionnaires and a new supply should be
available by mid-week.
The questionnaire, which library
officials say will take only a few
minutes to complete, asks users which
branches they use, how frequently
they visit them and their views on services provided in campus libraries.
The results will be analysed by a
ten-member committee of librarians
and will affect campus library services.
Institute of Ocean Sciences at Patricia
Bay on Vancouver Island.
President Kenny's Sept. 17 letter
points out that the concept of a
research park at UBC was first raised
in 1977, and in June of that year each
UBC faculty was asked to provide to
the President's Office comments and
views on the proposal.
"The replies," the president said in
his letter, "were uniformly
positive...and formed the basis for
discussions with various agencies of
the provincial government."
In February and April of 1978, the
president told faculty members, he
met with his executive committee on
research and his advisory board on
grants, contracts and research policy
to bring them up-to-date on discussions with the provincial government
and to discuss the implications of the
proposed park on research and other
UBC activities.
"Both committees responded enthusiastically, particularly in relation
to the opportunities that the park
would provide to increase the interaction between researchers from UBC
and those from other sectors," the
president's letter said.
The president said he also sought
the advice of the committee of deans
in April, 1978, and in the fall of the
same year established an ad hoc committee on UBC Discovery Park, which
summarized the hopes and concerns of
the University community "and provided me with a set of guidelines
which formed the basis of all subsequent discussion "
The president also pointed out in
his letter to faculty that he delivered a
progress report on negotiations concerning the establishment of the park
to Senate on Sept. 12, 1979, shortly
before writing to all faculty members.
The president ended the letter to
faculty by listing the following matters
which were the subject of negotiations
with Discovery Parks, Inc.
• Ownership of the land will remain with UBC but the land will be
leased to Discovery Park Industries
• The University will be represented on a board of management
responsible for the day-to-day administration of Discovery Park.
• The University will have to approve all tenants, thus ensuring
research undertaken will be related to
University interests and expertise.
Naturally, the University will look
most favorably on those applicants
whose work will encourage fellowships, student aid and student summer employment.
• Plans for all buildings must be
approved by the University.
• Any land not used by Discovery
Park Industries Ltd. within 15 years
will automatically revert to the
• All buildings constructed at
Discovery Park UBC will become the
property of the University at the termination of the lease.
• All Discovery Park UBC facilities
will be open for inspection by University officials at any time.
• All tenants must meet UBC standards with respect to environmental
and pollution control.
• Any expenses associated with the
removal of University buildings, properties, services, etc. to other University areas will be borne by the developer
at no expense to UBC.
Discovery Park has already been the
subject of two student-sponsored
public meetings held on the campus
in November, 1979, and January,
1980. Both were attended by President Kenny. OBCalendar
